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

Obama

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: norberthaering.de


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: globalresearch.ca

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).

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
483
“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
490

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 (youtube.com). 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


NATO Weaponry and Personnel in East Aleppo

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

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

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


‘Countering Disinformation & Propaganda Act’ now Law

US abstains as UN demands End to Israeli Settlements

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

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

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


Zionist False Flags in France Exposed

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

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

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


Rare Russian Books on Jewish Ritual Murder Court Cases

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

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

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

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


Scientist forced into a U-Turn

By Jonathan Gray © 2016 all rights reserved

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Observable Evidence of a Master Designer

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

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

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

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

Identical to Written Language

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

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

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

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

Intelligently Designed ‘sentences’ impressed from the Outside

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


High Cloud Ring of Mystery

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

Some might ask, “Does this matter?”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“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 . . .

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


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

President Al Assad

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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


‘Newspeak’ and Duplicity of Mainstream Journalism

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

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

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

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

Sensible communication—according to President Trump

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

Word: The Logos and the Rhema

Based on the book by Alfred Raa
Olson

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

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

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

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

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

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

* * *

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 953

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

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

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

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

Your brother-in-Christ

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

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

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

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

The ‘Elite’ Coup of 2016

Obama

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

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

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 . . .” America’s LIAR in Chief perchance?


Stop the CIA Coup: The Deep State versus Donald Trump

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

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

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

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

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


US Intel Vets dispute [Egregious] Russia Hacking Claims

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

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

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


Syrian Govt. retakes Eastern Aleppo

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

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

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

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


Washington Post admits ‘Rebels’ invaded Syria

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

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

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

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

Congress votes to give Jihadists Anti-aircraft Missiles

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

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

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

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

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


Report from Aleppo: a Historic Moment

President Al Assad

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


The Absolute

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


The Ten Virgins

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it’s good to have you with us for divine fellowship.

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

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

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

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.

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

Two-faced Obama

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

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

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

Kings of the East

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

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

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

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

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

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


Dismal Jobs Report

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

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

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

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

Why Big Mining loves Big Green

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

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

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

Michigan lets Autonomous Cars on Roads without Human Driver

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Heroin Epidemic and the News

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

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

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

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


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

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

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


What the Tapes Say

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ISSN 1442-8660

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it’s good to see you in the front pew.

Our main article is “Believe the Token.” Brother Branham said, “God has never failed us. I believe the Great Physician now is near.

Fidel Castro Ruz. His Legacy will Live Forever

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

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

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

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

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


Liberation of Aleppo . . . Relief of Escaping Imprisonment

President Al Assad

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

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

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

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


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

CIA logo

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

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

Waiting for the Barbarians

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

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

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

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

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

Believe the Token

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Human Rights Violations: North Korea vs. the US

November 24, 2016 — UN Third Committee Resolution L.23 IN, legitimizes stranglehold economic sanctions used as a means to “obliterate” North Korea. But in New York . . . recently published masterpiece, entitled “Blood in the Water,” by United States historian Heather Ann Thompson documents the horrific tortures inflicted during the murderous repression of unarmed prisoners. Among those slaughtered in the massacre ordered by Governor Rockefeller, was “Kenny Malloy, His skull had been riddled with so many bullets that his eye sockets were shredded by the shards of his own bones.”

Invading with chemical poison CS gas, orthochlorobenzyldene, the heavily armed state troopers began murdering the unarmed prisoners. The tortures to which the “surviving prisoners were subjected were described by victim Frank Smith.

Page 487: “He was chained to a table, ‘They say you like to play football, we’re going to put this football into you nigger, and then we’re going to kill you.’ The torturers shoved a football under his chin, and told him if he let it drop, they would shoot him. As recounted by Smith, the troopers kicked him ‘repeatedly in the testicles, and were spitting on me, dropping lit cigarettes on me . . . I would flex my body to make the cigarette fall off me, so it wouldn’t burn too long.’ his legs hung over the edge of the table for six hours until they started to go numb. ‘My head was hurting, my back was hurting, and the most excruciating pain I had was in my testicles. It was a very excruciating pain in my genital area.’ He was then forced to run through a gauntlet with fifty armed officers on both sides, with broken glass on the floor. Still completely naked, he endured the blows of axe handles and the baton with pig handles as he was forced to run this gauntlet. The pain had been horrendous, ‘unbearable pain; my testicles, my fingers gouged, and arms and back,’ accompanied by endless barrage of vile racial attacks, slurs.”

This was standard torture of the prisoners, including rape:

“An officer pulled out a Phillips screwdriver and told the naked inmate to get on his feet or he’d stab the screwdriver in his rectum . . . then he just started stabbing him.”

When the prisoners’ attorney, the great civil rights lawyer William Kunstler, witnessed the carnage of mangled dead bodies strewn everywhere on the ground, Kunstler, who had grasped that this was a legitimate political rebellion, wept uncontrollably at the sight of fascism’s work . . . of course, Governor Rockefeller, the man responsible for the massacre, was never held accountable, but history condemns him for perpetrating this infamous state terror.

The New Yorker, May 2, 2016 describes current torture and murder of mentally disabled prisoners in Florida prisons. This is documented in an article by Eyal Press. As prisoner Darren Rainey, diagnosed as schizophrenic, had defecated in his cell, after being tormented by his guards, he was, as punishment, put in a “shower,” “locked in a stall whose water supply was delivered through a hose controlled by the guards. The water was over one hundred and eighty degrees, hot enough to brew a cup of tea . . . It was later revealed that Rainey had burns on more than ninety percent of his body, and that his skin fell off at the touch.”

Rainey was boiled to death in the shower, but it was learned that many other prisoners had been subjected to the same torture of being boiled alive. None of the perpetrators of this torture were held accountable. Prisoners were routinely beaten. Other prisoners were starved, some starved to death. Any witnesses who might have spoken against this abuse were threatened and silenced . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

Obama tries to cover Tracks by ordering a Mop Up of Jabhat al-Nusra Leaders

Two-faced Obama

November 15, 2016 — Washington created al-Qaeda back in 1988 to fight Soviet influence in Afghanistan. Similarly, a quarter of a century later, the Obama administration created and armed the so-called Syrian opposition, that was later transformed into a dangerous and pretty disgusting weapon—ISIS . . . It’s true that Pentagon has wasted thousands of tons of ordinance, while pretending that it’s trying to destroy ISIS and its affiliates in Iraq and Syria, but there has been no real struggle as it was officially admitted by the US State Department spokesman Mark Toner . . . according to the revelations made by a Jabhat al-Nusra militant in his interview for the German journal Focus, Washington has been directly supplying the group with TOW systems to increase its fighting capacity.

But when Trump surprised everyone by winning the recent presidential election, the Obama administration has started covering up its criminal activities in the remaining 70 days before the new president is inaugurated. Thus, the group that was engaged in a number of fishy schemes of the Neocons over the years has found itself in the “to be cleaned up” list.

Pentagon knows the location of every hiding that shelters terrorist leaders, as has been repeatedly stated by US officials, however those hidings remained undamaged for years . . . now the Washington Post would report that President Obama ordered the Pentagon to find and kill the leaders of Jabhat al-Nusra . . . most Western media sources remain silent about the fact that Obama’s newfound determination is provoked by the fact that Trump is taking office pretty soon. Should there be an inquiry into the activities of the Obama administration after it’s gone those terrorist leaders would be able to testify against Obama and his affiliates . . . they are being murdered in a hurry now.

‘Fake News’ on Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Ukraine, Yemen

November 24, 2016 — A smear campaign is currently underway accusing the alternative and independent online media of producing “Fake News” . . . analysis confirms that the corporate media rather than the alternative media are routinely involved in distorting the facts and turning realities upside down. They are the unspoken architects of “Fake News”.

 

  • They deny Israeli war crimes against Palestinians,
  • They fail to mention that the US, Britain, France, Turkey and Saudi Arabia are providing covert support to both Al Qaeda and the Islamic State (ISIS-Daesh),
  • They disregard the fact that two Neo-Nazi parties are part of the Ukrainian government coalition,
  • They accuse the Syrian government of killing their own people.

 

In the words of Mark Taliano:

“The War on Syria is not a “civil” war; the “uprising” was not “democratic”; Assad does not “starve his own people”; Assad does not “bomb his own people”, and, of course, there are no “moderate” terrorists.”

The US and its allies are directly or indirectly involved in several illegal wars: Afghanistan, Ukraine, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen. These acts of military aggression are casually upheld by the mainstream media as “humanitarian wars” under the doctrine of “Responsibility to Protect (R2P).

In turn, the ongoing US-led bombing raids against Syria and Iraq resulting in countless civilian deaths are portrayed by the MSM as a “counter-terrorism campaign” against the Islamic State, which just happens to be financed by America’s closest allies, including [Dönmeh Jew-ruled] Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

Comment: The mainstream corporate media is desperate. They want to suppress independent and alternative online media, which it categorizes as “fake news”. Readers on social media are warned not to go onto certain sites. The intent of this initiative is to smear honest reporting and Truth in Media. Our analysis confirms that the mainstream media are routinely involved in distorting the facts and turning realities upside down. They are the unspoken architects of “Fake News”. One area of routine distortion is the use of fake videos and images by the mainstream media (globalresearch.ca).

A pushback is coming to the Internet’s success in giving the world access to diverse opinions and dissenting information. Politicians, mainstream media and technology giants are taking aim at what they call “fake news” (consortiumnews.com).


Cynthia: Flesh-Eating Synthetic Bacteria that has gone Wild

September 14, 2016 — the first synthetic bacteria—Cynthia, created “to combat oil pollution in the Gulf of Mexico” which, according to the various reports that are often ignored by the corporate media, has mutated and has started attacking animals and humans. Now this highly lethal microorganism is on its way to Europe . . . an oil slick produced by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill covered over sixty thousand square miles . . . Washington decided to take drastic measures . . . at that time when an artificially created microorganism nicknamed Cynthia was unleashed . . . was created and funded directly by BP. It was believed that Cynthia feeds on oil, but it turns out now that it is equally willing to consume all forms of organic life as well . . . Full story: journal-neo.org

Is Obama staging a Colour Revolution in the US

November 12, 2016 — Over the last eight years, the Obama administration has acquired a long list of tricks that were used against undesired governments in various parts of the world, while the most effective among them is the so-called “colour revolutions,” where essentially a coup d’état is achieved by media manipulation and large mobs. US intelligence services are now prepared to unleash such a revolution on the home front, since they are fairly concerned about their future under Trump, as the Washington Post would report.

The fact that Obama still believes in Trump’s inability to replace him in the White House has already been announced by the White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest. At the same time, he would point out, while commenting on the anti-Trump protests in the US, that the right for freedom of expression must be exercised without violence, clearly alluding to the current administration’s arsenal of “peaceful” tools that would allow it to get rid of Trump.

That is why we already are witnessing a wave of ‘protests’ being unleashed under the control of the Obama administration. The corporate media and social networks are openly arrayed against the incoming 45th US President. These very tactics have been used by US intelligence agencies in Brazil, Nicaragua, Hong Kong, Thailand . . . across the Middle East and Eastern Europe to unleash a ‘colour revolution.’ In some countries, such actions have brought foreign government under the direct control of the White House, as in Ukraine, Brazil and several other countries . . .

False Promise of EU Dream: Moldova and Bulgaria elect Pro-Russian Presidents

November 13, 2016 — As the European Union continues to spiral towards an all-out disaster due to significant economic problems, the migrant crisis, cultural decay, and an overall loss of purpose, countries like Moldova and Bulgaria, which were once blinded by the false promises of the European dream, are beginning to shift course back towards the only nation in Europe today that is experiencing a remarkable renaissance—yes, Russia.

In the second round of presidential elections . . . the pro-Russian candidates Igor Dodon of Moldova and Rumen Radev of Bulgaria have come out victorious over their pro-European rivals . . . Full story: theduran.com

Malachi 4:5 – 6

“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful Day of the Lord: and he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse [following which] the righteous shall tread down the wicked; for they will be nuclear ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, says the Lord of hosts”.

The Lord anoints five different prophets with the measure of the Spirit with which He anointed Elijah under the reign of Ahab king of Israel and his pagan Serpent’s seed wife Jezebel. Elijah means ‘Yahweh is God’; his mission was to bring His apostate people of the Northern Kingdom of Israel back to the one true God (I Kings 18:39) away from the worship of Baal and Astarte (Semiramis or Venus) introduced by Ahab and his idolatrous wife Jezebel, daughter of Ethbaal (Baal with him), the priest of Astarte who murdered Pheles and usurped the throne of Tyre for thirty-two years. Ahab and his party represented Baal and Yahweh as essentially the same God in order to reconcile the people to idolatry as if it were “a light thing to walk in the sins of Jeroboam” and worship the God of Abraham under the symbol of a calf (Exodus 20:3-4; I Kings 16:31). Emperor Constantine and the non-Semitic self-styled Jews of Revelation 2 followed the same process at the First Nicaea Council where they married the apostate first church of Rome with the Roman state and its Babylonian trinity as they created Pharisaism in Babylon, and later Islam. Protestantism has since apostatised and they too claim to worship the God of Abraham, yet also without revelation (John 4:24). Elijah’s work was to confound these sophisms and vindicate the one true God to the exclusion of all idols.

God instructed Elijah to anoint Elisha to succeed him so when he was caught up to heaven in a chariot of fire and horses of fire (II Kings 2), he received a double portion of the Spirit; and whereas God performed sixteen miracles at the hands of Elijah, He performed thirty two miracles through Elisha’s ministry. The third prophet anointed by that spirit was John the Baptist who introduced Jesus’ first Coming. He preached and baptized for repentance but no miracle is attributed to him (Isaiah 40:3; Malachi 3:1; Matthew 3:1-11; 17:12; Mark 1:2-5; Luke 1:17-18; 3:2-17; John 1:15-37). After John’s martyrdom and the death and resurrection of Jesus Messiah, his ministry turned the heart of our apostolic fathers to the primitive Church born of the faith of Jesus (Malachi 4:5, 6a; Matthew 11:7-18; 17:11). The fourth Elijah was William Branham (1909-1965) whose Message was vindicated by untold thousands of miracles (Isaiah 61:2b; Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:10-11) to reveal “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8; 4:12. The fifth ‘Elijah’ will be the prophet who ministers to Israelites returned to the Land of the Covenant after its abandonment by the self-styled Jews; he will be associated with another prophet anointed by the Spirit that endued Moses “These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth” (Zechariah 4:12-14; Daniel 12:5-7; Matthew 17:3-4; 24:31; 11:2-12; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 11:3-12; 22:2).

Shadows and types

Elijah told King Ahab, “there shall not be dew nor rain all these years according to my word . . . three and a half years later he told Ahab, I will send rain upon the earth” (I Kings 17:1; 18:1; Luke 4:25; James 5:17). The Moses and Elijah of Revelation 11 will preach Israel’s former or “teaching” rain for three and a half years of Daniel’s Seventieth Week during which “if any one desires to harm them, Fire [of their ‘third pull’] or spoken Word will devour their enemies and if any one desires to harm them, he must be killed [II Kings 1:9-15; I Kings 18:36-39]. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy [Israel’s latter or “harvest” rain cannot fall until after their martyrdom, resurrection, glorification and assumption up to heaven in the pillar of Cloud witnessed worldwide on television (Revelation 11:7-13]: and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.” God will separate the borderline believers from the 144,000 elect Israelites.

When the Lord told Elijah to anoint Elisha to succeed him in the prophetic office he symbolically threw his cloak upon Elisha, then recovering it went his way. Elisha acted at once on God’s first call, burnt his wooden plough and an ox, bid farewell to family and friends, and went after Elijah to serve him. After meeting his commitments Elijah crossed Jordan to the place where the Lord had told him he would be caught up to heaven by a whirlwind and asked Elisha if he had any special request before he is taken away (II Kings 2). Elisha asked for a double portion of the prophetic spirit that was upon him—the double blessing of the first-born [Deuteronomy 21:17]—Elijah’s spiritual son heir to the prophetic office and gifts of his master (II Kings 2:9).

Elisha saw Elijah taken up, and taking the cloak that fell from Elijah he smote the waters saying, “Where is the Lord God of Elijah?” The waters parted from one side to the other and Elisha went over: a type of the Church following Jesus, seeing His power, seeing His miracles.

One day the mother of James and John asked Jesus, “Grant that my two sons may sit in Your Kingdom, one on your right hand, and one on the left”.

Jesus asked, “Can you drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?” They said “We are able.” And He said, “You will indeed drink of My cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with.”

James the Great was decapitated in AD44 by Edomite Herod Agrippa seeking to ingratiate himself with Jewry. His accuser was brought to repent of his conduct by the apostle’s extraordinary and undaunted courage, and fell at his feet to request pardon, professing himself a Christian, and resolving that James should not receive the crown of martyrdom alone. Hence they were both beheaded at the same time. And although John died a natural death at a very advanced age, spiritually his was the longest and deepest martyrdom of any of the apostles, and for the sake of Christ he underwent many and severe outward sufferings.

But to sit at My right hand, and on My left, is not Mine to give, and shall be given to them for whom it was prepared by My Father [before the foundation of the world].” As signified by the cherubim over the Mercy Seat on the Ark of the Covenant which Bezalel made “of pure gold [signifying deity]: two and a half cubits long, and one and a half cubits wide. And he made two cherubim of gold, of hammered work beaten out of one piece, on the two ends of the mercy seat; one cherub on one end, and one cherub on the other end: he made the cherubim of one piece with the mercy seat. And the cherubim spread their wings upward, covering the mercy seat, their faces toward each other and the mercy seat” (Exodus 37:6-9; Matthew 20:20-28).

“These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth” (Zechariah 4:12-14). The Cherubim represent Moses and Elijah and ultimately the redeemed saints of the Old Testament, in particular those under the Old Covenant, and the redeemed New Testament saints: the Church represented by the golden Menorah and the 144,000 elect Israelites represented by the Table of Shewbread which were in the sanctuary (Revelation 5:8-10). We were all present when the Lamb claimed and opened the Book of Life. Like Martin Luther, their sole standing is on the blood-sprinkled mercy seat toward which they gaze as the redeemed shall forever, and are “the habitation of God through the Spirit” at one with God in Christ (Ephesians 2:22). On that ground we are the habitation of God, from which His glory is to shine upon the world (Matthew 5:15; John 17:5; I Corinthians 2:7-8; 6:19-20; Revelation 21:22-23). Between the Cherubim was the glory of God, Jesus Christ (Psalm 99:1; Matthew 17:2-3; Luke 9:29-35; Acts 1:10-11; Hebrews 9:5).

After Calvary He resurrected and instructed His disciples, “that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His Name [which Name is LORD JESUS CHRIST according to Matthew 28:19] among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And you are witnesses of these things. And I will send the promise of My Father upon you: but wait in the city of Jerusalem, until you are endued with power from on high”.

And when the Day of Pentecost was fully come they were all baptized with the same Holy Ghost baptism or cloak that was upon Jesus as the same Holy Spirit that endued Elijah came upon Elisha in a double portion. The Church can do “greater (more) works” than He could, because we are many (John 14:12), and you’ll be His witnesses in Roma, Gunnedah, Black Hill and Easley, Eagle Bridge, Makurdi, Pupplagutta, and all over the world. Every Brother and Sister born of the Spirit of God is a witness of the resurrection of Jesus Christ “and I will be with you always, even to the end of the world”.

Elijah’ was “a hairy man, and girt with a girdle of leather about his loins” (II Kings 1:8). His hairy lambskin coat was assumed by Elisha; the “hairy” cloak afterwards became a prophet’s conventional garb (Zechariah 13:4). John the Baptist “was clothed with camel’s hair and with a girdle of leather about his loins” (Mark 1:6).

Like a Bedouin, Elijah and John the Baptist after him delighted in the desert, the heights of Carmel and the caves of Mount Horeb as William Branham, the Elijah of our day was a man of natural wilderness, deserts and mountains. But like Elisha, Brother Branham also ministered in centres of civilization in many countries. Whereas Elijah was a stern enforcer of the Law which had been forgotten and trodden under foot, Elisha’s calling was to herald the divine tenderness, with tempting invitations to restore the hearts that had been broken by his predecessor with the hammer of the Law.

In delivering the Fourth Seal Brother Branham quoted Revelation 19:13-17 and said the Lord is smiting the antitype of Jezebel, the false church and her Ahab, the false prophet which will be eaten by wild beasts and fowls of the air as the dogs licked Ahab’s blood and devoured Jezebel.

“Jezebel is the type of the modern church today because Catholics and Protestants are joined together now . . . Now, we notice, killed by a command of God was Jezebel—was killed because God had Jehu [Russia] to go down there and have her throwed out of the window and kill Jezebel, and the dogs eat her flesh. (Is that right?) literal Jezebel. Ahab, her king head: dogs licked his blood as the first Elijah predicted . . . And Jezebel and Ahab were the head of them churches—church and state, all together. And Elijah [William Branham] revealed Ahab’s sins to him and commanded the whole church to turn back to the true Word . . .”

“Now if you want to see their bodies, let’s turn over here to Revelations 19 after the Word slays them. Now, the Word’s going to kill them. You know that. All right now, you just watch and see what happens when Christ coming in Revelations 19, beginning with the 17th verse . . .”

“And His vesture was dipped with blood, and He’s called King of king and Lord of lords.” (In the 13th verse, He’s called the Word of God. See? Now, here He is King of kings and Lord of lords) . . .”

“And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: . . . (Out of His mouth, like from God’s mouth to Moses’ mouth. See?) . . . and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and . . . tread the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of Almighty God. And He hath on His vesture (a Name) . . . on His thigh a Name written, KING OF KING, and LORD of LORDS.”

“And I saw an angel . . . (Now, watch, now He comes forth smiting. Who’s He smiting? Jezebel and her Ahab, false prophet). And I saw an Angel standing in the sun; and He cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls of the air in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together to the supper of the great God.”

“He feeds them to the beasts and birds. Now, watch over here in the other chapter here of the Book of Revelations [2:18-23]. And . . . (Just a minute.) “Kill with the sword and death and beasts of the earth.” See? The Jezebel church, her actually body, is to be eaten by fowls and beasts of the earth. Just exactly like Ahab and Jezebel was in the natural, so are they to be in the spiritual form a church. Do you see what I mean? All right.”

“Elijah (Oh.), Elijah was the prophet in the days of Ahab and Jezebel, natural. And He’s promised to do the same thing according to THUS SAITH THE LORD, in the Word to the Jezebel, spiritual: His Spirit form of ministry.”

“Watch. Elijah, though in his day properly and profoundly vindicated, could not turn them back to the Word. Is that right? Though Elijah tried with everything; he did everything; he showed them signs and wonders; and they laughed in his face. Same thing they’ll do with this spiritual. See? He could not turn them back to the Word.”

“Now, listen, Church, close now you that is going to be confused on this. Out of the millions in the world in the days of Elijah, when Jezebel and Ahab was reigning in type of the antitype today—out of the whole world, there was only seven hundred thousand saved of Elijah’s preaching . . . Elijah never knew even one of them was that way. He thought he was the only one saved until God opened one of the Seals and showed him the mystery of the Book, that He had seven hundred thousand that never bowed down to them creeds that they had. When God opened His Book to Elijah, He said, “Now, wait a minute, son; I got seven hundred thousand that’s tucked around out there: got their names on the Book since the foundation of the world. They’re Mine.” Whew. God opened the Seals. That’s the reason I think John was doing all that shouting the other night. He must’ve seen his name on there” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 326:5 – 330:4).

After his anointing Elisha approached Bethel which was situated on a high hill and was the principal seat of calf and Baal worship, and was accosted by a group of irresponsible young men who scorned him because he was a prophet of Yahweh rather than Baal. “Go up [into our city], you bald head, [a mark of leprosy and disgrace an impure and expelled person, for priests were meant to be whole (Leviticus 21:5; Number6 6:5)] what do you want from us?” Note that to this day Jewish men and Muslims cover their head contrary to Scripture (Genesis 1:26; 5:1; 9:6; I Corinthians 11:7), and Muslim women cover their head with a kerchief or vail when in the Old and New Testaments uncut hair signifies she is covered by the headship of her father or husband (Numbers 5:18; I Corinthians 11:1-16).

The scorn of the delinquents attacked not so much the person of Elisha as the office supernaturally bestowed on him at his first appearance in that capacity, and in Bethel could not be allowed to pass in silence. He cursed them in the Name of the Lord and two she bears tore forty-two of the louts.

Brother Branham said, “If they’d have been taught reverence and respect, they’d have walked out there before that prophet of God and have asked for prayer for themselves. But they had been taught to snicker and laugh and to make fun about like the children of today. No, too many of them today would make fun at a street meeting; they’d make fun at the preaching of the Gospel.

So Elisha cursed them in the Name of the Lord. Not because of the children, but because of the irreverent parents that’d brought the children up that way to disrespect God. Two she bears come out and killed forty-two of them. Now, that’s irreverence. God demands respect. When they disrespected His prophet, they disrespected Him; no matter if they didn’t believe, they ought to kept their mouth shut, stay away from it. But no, they had to put in their nickel’s worth. They had to say something that they ought not have said. And what happened to them? (Respects, p. 18:133-134). We may be certain this is a type that will be repeated in the near future (It becometh Us to fulfil All Righteousness, p. 6:39; Revelation 13:5).

Jesus' baptismJohn the Baptist’s public ministry in the wilderness by the River Jordan, some seventy miles north-east of Jerusalem, was to call Israelites to the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins and to apprehend true holiness. He railed against their presumption that descent from Abraham, Isaac and Israel ensured eternal security. For it is a maxim among the Jews that “All Israel have a portion in the world to come, for it is written: Thy people are all righteous” (Mishnah Sanhedrin 10:1, Talmud Sanhedrin 90a). One midrashic passage reads, Said R. Levi, “In the age to come Abraham will sit at the gate of Gehenna [hell], and he will not permit a circumcised Israelite to go down there” (Jacob Neusner, ed. Genesis Rabbah (“Vayera” 45:8), Vol. II (Atlanta: Scholars Press, 1985) 182). “[The wicked Jews] are at that time under sentence to suffer in Gehenna, but our father Abraham comes, brings them up, and receives them” (Talmud b. Eruvin 19a). The final blessing that is made at a ‘Covenant of Circumcision’ ceremony (performed on the eighth day of a male infant’s life) includes the words: ‘as a reward of this (circumcision), the living God, our Portion, our Rock, has ordained that the beloved of our flesh be saved from the abyss, for the sake of the Covenant which He has set in our flesh. Those who are descendants of Abraham according to the flesh will most certainly share in the eternal kingdom, even though they be faithless sinners and disobedient to God’.

Pointing to the pebbles baptized by the Jordan John cautioned, “Presume not to say confidently within yourselves, We have Abraham as our father, for I tell you that as God raised Adam from the dust of the earth, and children to Abraham from Sarah’s dead womb, He is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.” And John denounced the Pharisees, Sadducees and other apostate Jewish sects, warning of the wrath that was to come upon Jerusalem [under General Titus] and Israel’s disinheritance as they “transgress the Commandments by their Talmudic tradition” (Matthew 15:3), unbelief and infidelity—“for without holiness, no man shall see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14).

It was the time of the Passover requiring all adult male Israelites to appear in Jerusalem. Deuteronomy 16:1-6 and the prophecy of Daniel 9:25 informed John and all Israel that the Messiah he was ordained to forerun must be in Jerusalem that Passover. Jesus was his cousin but having lived in the wilderness from the age of nine John “could not recognize Him but He who sent him to baptize in water, said ‘He on whom you see the Spirit descend and remain, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit’.”

Judea was apostate and knew it not: being religious they were expecting Messiah, but the Talmudic traditions of their denominations had made the Word of God of no effect to them and they were looking for His third Coming as a General to expel Rome and restore the Kingdom to Israel rather than their KINSMAN Redeemer. So when Jerusalem “sent priests and Levites to ask John who he was, he confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Christ.” And they asked him, Then are you Elijah [of Malachi 4:5 preceding the great and dreadful Day of the Lord]? And he said, “I am not.” Are you the Prophet [Messiah of Deuteronomy 18:15]? And he answered, “No.” So who are you, that we may have an answer for those who sent us? What do you say about yourself? He answered, “I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Isaiah” (Isaiah 40:3; Mark 1:3l Luke 3:3).

A prophet is a sign of judgment and no genuine prophet needs to speak for himself. God will vindicate him by His Word and works and the elect will not be deceived. Now the priests and Levites sent by the Pharisees could not see John’s vindication in the Scriptures he quoted to identify himself because they were looking for the Elijah who would come before the consummation (Malachi 4:5; Matthew 17:10) after which the Kingdom would be restored to Israel (Acts 1:6) and Messiah would reign from Jerusalem throughout the millennium.

“They had been sent by the Pharisees [who are now called Jews). And they asked Him, Why are you baptizing, if you are neither the Messiah [coming to take the Throne as Son of David (Matthew 9:27; 15:22, 20:30-31) nor Elijah (of Malachi 4:5, 6b, William Branham), neither that Prophet (of Deuteronomy 18:15 and 18, Jesus Messiah)?

“John answered them saying, I baptize with water: but among you stands One, whom you do not know. It is He who comes after me, the thong of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie”.

The blindness prophesied of the Jewish religious leaders is mirrored today by the world church system (Isaiah 29:10; Romans 11:8, 25; Revelation 3:17) that claims we are in “the time of the end” which commenced after the revelation of the Seven Seals (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4). But since they believe John was the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 and Matthew 17:11, which he was not, they are not seeking a prophet. Yet “the Lord God can do nothing without first revealing His secret to His servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7) and displaying a sign in the heavens (Genesis 1:14; Psalm 19:1-4; 50:6; Matthew 24:3, 22-28; Romans 10:18; Revelation 10:1-4). Until the prophet of Malachi 4:5, 6b and Revelation 10:7 reveals the mystery of the Seven Seals there can be no “end time,” no rapture and no first resurrection. And because of their error they are looking for the visible second physical return of the glorified Man in the heavens contrary to Matthew 24:22-28. His precious feet will not touch this earth until after the consummation (Malachi 4:1-3). It is the unseen second or (Gk.) ‘parousia’ Coming of Christ “as a thief in the night” (I Thessalonians 5:2; II Peter 3:10; Revelation 3:3; 16:15; 3:17-19) in W_O_R_D form they must recognize (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:28; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7).

Matthew 17:1-13“As Jesus, Peter, James, and John came down from Mount Transfiguration where in a vision they had been shown a preview of Jesus’ return glorified preceded Israel’s two witnesses of Revelation 11 who also signified the prior resurrection of the sleeping Church Age saints typed by Moses who died on Mount Nebo, and the translation of “we who are alive and remain” represented by Elijah who was translated. His disciples asked Him, Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come before the Day of the Lord (Malachi 4:5)? Jesus replied, [the fourth] Elijah [William Branham] truly shall first come, and restore the faith once delivered to the apostolic fathers” [Malachi 4:6b; Jude 3]. The manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial will signal the end of the Gentile dispensation, then the Church will be resurrected and translated before Israel’s second ‘Moses’ and fifth ‘Elijah’ come or receive their anointing (COD, p. 1091:Q336). “But I tell you that Elijah has already come (Malachi 3:1), and they did not recognize him, but have done to him as they pleased. In a similar way the Son of man will also suffer at their hands. Then the disciples understood that He was speaking of the decapitation of Israel’s third Elijah, John the Baptist”.

After Abel’s death the Lord excoriated Cain: “The voice of your brother cries unto Me from the ground.” And four months before Brother Branham’s death the late Orman Walker, a minister from Oregon related a dream in which the Prophet said, “I’ll ride this trail once more.” It corresponded with the spiritual dreams of several other saints repeated in the sermon, “And Knoweth it Not.” This meant he will preach his Message once more. Three months later he said, “Why, me an old man, suffered all my life, why did He heal me now? I believe I’ll ride this trail again; I got to bring a Message. And I say to my Father tonight (as Junior seen in a dream the other night of the wings of this Dove moving in these windows here), Lord, Your servant’s reporting for service. Amen, I’m ready” (On the Wings of a Snow White Dove, p. 35:225).

In Revelation 10:5-7 we read, “The Angel [Christ] which I saw stand [in judgment] on [Rome, the beast from] the sea and upon [the beast from] the earth [the United States image of Rome wherein the apostate (once) Protestant churches are united with the State under Rome] lifted up His hand to heaven, and swore [an oath] by Him Who lives forever and ever, Who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be ‘chronos’ time no longer [or delay as all Seven Church Ages and Christ’s Mediation are fulfilled and redemption is over]: but in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel [William Branham], when he shall begin to sound [His Message—the mysteries of the seven unwritten thunders of Revelation 10—the revelations contained in the Seven Seals]—the mystery of God should be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets”.

John the Baptist foreran Messiah’s first physical or (Gk.) ‘erchomai’ Coming, and “laid the axe to the root of all trees” or spiritual principles of Pharisees, Sadducees, Herodians, Essenes, Zealots and all other Jewish sects. Three and a half years after his death John’s Message “turned the heart of the apostolic fathers—Peter, James, John, Luke, Paul, etc., to the elect children of God” (Malachi 4:6a). When God commissioned His fourth Elijah William Branham, the Shekinah like a star descended as he was baptizing in the Ohio River and a Voice said, “As John the Baptist foreran My first Coming, your Message will forerun My second [or (Gk.) ‘parousia’] Coming” (Revelation 1:20). Fifty-two years after his death “the Message of the seventh angel” is “riding this trail once more,” preaching the “shout” of I Thessalonians 4:16 which is the “midnight cry” of Matthew 25:6 calling the children of God out from the Judaeo-Roman church and her Lutheran, Methodist, Pentecostal, etc., harlot daughters into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Revelation 18:4; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:52).

In Malachi 4:5 God promised: “I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful Day of the Lord.” This will be the consummation of life and its aftermath foretold in Malachi 4:1-3 which are yet to be fulfilled.

Malachi 4:6a promised: “Elijah shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children.” In John’s day the fathers were Reuben, Ephraim, Judah, Napthali, etc., but they died more than a thousand years before John was born so his ministry could not turn their heart. But from the Day of Pentecost three and a half years after John’s death, his Message resulted in the heart of the apostolic fathers turning to God’s elect children out of every nation, tribe and tongue in Adam’s race. And we should remember that since Calvary, God’s servant nation Israel has been disinherited “until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in” (Romans 11:25), then, and in the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week the Israel nation will be born-again in one day, all 144,000 of them (Isaiah 66:8).

Malachi 4:6b continues: “and [after two thousand years another] Elijah will turn the heart of the children to [the faith of] their [apostolic] fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.” This Elijah was most definitely not John but the Gentile prophet William Branham (1909 – 1965) whose Message restored “the faith once delivered to the apostolic saints”  (Mark 9:11-12) and brought Christ the fullness of the Word back to earth in W_O_R_D form (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7), warning of the imminent curse that will smite the earth and instructing us how to escape God’s wrath.

After the Church is taken away Israel’s two witnesses—two Israelites of the blood of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, not Jews—will receive their anointings for ministry. One man with the Spirit that endued Moses the Law giver who ministered only to the Israelites, the other man with the Spirit that was upon Elijah who was a prophet to all nations.

There has been confusion as to whether these two prophets might be the original Moses and the original Elijah. They will be a second ‘Moses’ and a fifth ‘Elijah’ because “It is appointed to men once to die, but after this the judgment”  (Hebrews 9:27). Moses has already died once; these two men must die as martyrs and then resurrect (Revelation 11:7-12). Brother Branham confirms this when he says, “They’re not here; [Moses and Elijah] won’t be here until the [glorified] Church is taken away” (COD, p. 1091:Q336). The original Moses and Elijah will be among the “friends of the Bridegroom” at our Wedding Supper in the Air. They are already glorified and impervious to death or harm so they cannot possibly be the two witnesses of Revelation 11 who must yet die.

And in his Message “The Rapture” (p. 34:166-180) Brother Branham quoted Matthew 18:16, “In the mouth of two or three witnesses let every Word be established” and showed us that there were three ‘raptures’ in the Old Testament—Enoch, Elijah, and Jesus—and there will be three ‘raptures’ in the New Testament—the first included the original prophet Moses (Matthew 27:50-53; Ephesians 4:8). The second ‘rapture’ in the New Testament will be “we who are alive and remain” after the resurrection of the sleeping saints, and the third ‘rapture’ in the New Testament will be the second ‘Moses’ and the fifth ‘Elijah’.

Time to Trump the Climate Hysteria

November 18, 2016 — The Clexit (Climate Exit Coalition) has pledged to assist any government or politician seeking to exit the Paris Agreement and to curb the wasteful and destructive UN/IPCC . . . Clexit could call on over 190 well-qualified climate realists from 26 countries to provide scientific, business, legal and political support and advice.

Firstly, de-fang the Paris Climate Treaty by refusing to sign it, by ignoring any deals signed by others without a supporting referendum, or by giving notice of formal withdrawal.

Secondly, de-fund the global warming industry—no tax payer funding for the UN/IPCC, no government money for climate tourism or conferences, no government grants for climate propaganda posing as “research”, no tax exemptions for green “charities” and no government subsidies for green energy.

Thirdly, de-staff all government climate bureaucracies.

And fourthly, re-educate—ensure that the climate curriculum in schools and universities is based on good science and real evidence, and not political agendas.

These four actions—de-fang, de-fund, de-staff and re-educate will cool the climate hysteria, with huge and immediate benefits for tax payers, jobs, industries and energy cost and security. It will also end the doomsday horror stories terrifying our young people. And if there is additional carbon dioxide in the air, our Earth will be greener and produce more food . . .

Putin withdraws Russia from International Criminal Court

November 17, 2016 — Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree Wednesday to withdraw Russia from the International Criminal Court, which rules on such grave charges as genocide and crimes against humanity . . .

Putin’s decree, published on the Kremlin’s website, comes a day after the UN General Assembly’s human rights [Laodicea] committee approved a resolution condemning Russia’s “temporary occupation of Crimea” and blamed Russia for rights abuses such as discrimination against some Crimean residents, such as Tatars. Russia annexed Crimea in March 2014 from Ukraine following a hastily called referendum, a move that led to crippling Western sanctions. A separatist insurgency erupted in eastern Ukraine the following month, backed by Russia . . . Full story: apnews.com

Syria: US-NATO supported Terrorists involved in Countless Atrocities

November 13, 2016 — Whereas the US, for example, carpet bombed Falluja in Iraq, the SAA, doesn’t have that “luxury” since it avoids killing Syrian civilians at all costs. The terrorists control occupied territories with unspeakable barbarism. A witness to the massacre at Adra described the scene in these words:

The rebels began to attack the government centers, and attacked the police station—where all the policemen were killed after only a brief clash because of the large numbers of the attackers. The attackers then headed to the checkpoint located on the edge of the city before moving to the clinic, where they slaughtered one from the medical staff and put his head in the popular market. They then dragged his body in front of townspeople who gathered to see what was happening. Bakery workers who resisted their machinery being taken away were roasted in their own oven. Jabhat al-Nusra and Islamic Front fighters went from house to house with a list of names and none of those taken away has been seen since.

President Al AssadWhen the Syrian army would try to enter Adra the Jihadists would throw women and children from the 20,000 people it captured off the top floors in front of the army.”

Nasr also discussed the lies propagated by imperialists, and believed by multitudes. He says that for the first three weeks of the so-called “revolution,” police and security personnel were ordered to not carry guns. It was during this time that 15 of Nasr’s friends were killed by so-called “peaceful protestors”.

This report is corroborated by peace activist Janice Kortright who writes:

The media lies about Syria . . . have been absolute . . . I think media heads should face trial for war crimes and crimes against humanity for the one-sided false narrative they’ve been spreading since the Syrian War began. Even earlier . . . throughout the entire “Arab Spring” orchestrated by the west using “jihadists” (paid mercenaries, criminals and brain-washed radicals) to create a “New Middle East” dedicated to western dominance and control over natural resources.

This soldier, whom we interviewed in Damascus, is a personal hero and friend. A friend to whom I’ve entrusted my life and would again any time anywhere. He was one of the soldiers in Daraa in March 2011 (where and when the violence in Syria began). This is his account and matches several others’ first hand accounts of events there.

The life of a Syrian soldier is so hard. A terrorist paid by the US or Saudi or Qatar makes about $300 or $400 a month. A Syrian soldier receives 1/10th of that. They fight an enemy that is often inhuman. I know of one soldier who was cut to pieces while his terrorist captors had his father on the phone listening to the torturous death of his son.

FALSE: The Syrian war began when President Assad brutally put down peaceful protests.

TRUE: The Syrian War was planned in earnest by the US since 2005. The Syrian soldiers and police were not even allowed to carry weapons until the “peaceful protesters” had slaughtered several hundreds of police and soldiers.

Kortright interviewed a Syrian soldier who described the soldiers’ (unarmed) and fatal encounters with the initial, externally-orchestrated uprisings, in these words:

Soldier: I don’t know, we didn’t see them face to face. My best friend was shot, so I felt anger and sadness. I felt anger because we were ambushed in this way and all we had was batons, we couldn’t defend ourselves. We had to run, they were shooting us like birds. And the demonstrators blocked all the entrances leading to us, so no ambulances was able to reach us whatsoever, at that point. I carried my best friend and what matters for us now is to protect him and protect ourselves until we get to safety. While we were running, we were seeing our friends the civil police, how they were being killed in front of us, or shot at.

Similarly, investigative reporter Rick Sterling debunks the propaganda that “Assad kills his own people” in his description of the initial, violent protests:

“In reality, there was a violent faction from the start. In the first protests in Deraa, seven police were killed. Two weeks later there was a massacre of 60 security forces in Deraa.”

These same “peaceful protestors” were the spearhead of the Western-orchestrated “regime change” operations, wherein the Muslim Brotherhood and foreign operatives played central roles. The “Arab Spring” was a foreign intelligence operation from the beginning.

Recent estimates suggest that terrorists from about 100 countries are currently infesting Syria. This, coupled with the legal interventions of the “Axis of resistance,” and the illegal war crimes of NATO and its allies, means that the dirty war on Syria is increasingly a world war . . .

Sanhedrin asks Putin and Trump to build Third Temple in Jerusalem

Last Trump

November 10, 2016 — The Nascent Sanhedrin is calling on Russian President Vladmir Putin and US president-elect Donald Trump to join forces and fulfill their Biblically-mandated (?) roles by rebuilding the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem . . . the election of Trump, who has promised to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, coupled with Putin’s expressed desire for the Temple to be rebuilt, prompted the Jewish court to send a letter offering the two the opportunity to act as modern-day Cyrus figures: non-Jewish kings who recognize the importance of Israel and the Temple.

Cyrus the Great, King of Persia in the sixth century BC, announced in the first year of his reign that he was prompted by God to make a decree that the Temple in Jerusalem should be rebuilt. [This flattery and his daughter, Ivanka’s conversion to Pharisaism is matched by Mr. Trump’s chutspah: “Let me tell you,” he declared during a speech in Milwaukee last March, “Ivanka Trump is the new Esther]”.

Cyrus sent the Jews under his rule back to Israel with a considerable sum of money [$$$$$$] with which to rebuild the Temple. The Sanhedrin plans to call on the two world leaders to take up this ancient Biblical decree and support [$$$$$$] the Jewish people in their holy mission . . .

The Sanhedrin’s letter notes that Trump’s upset victory was due to his support of Jerusalem, and reminds Trump of his campaign promise to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, effectively recognizing the city as the capital of Israel. The Jerusalem Embassy Act, passed in Congress in 1995, initiated the moving of the embassy, but has been vetoed since every American president since. The Sanhedrin calls on Trump to withhold the veto after he takes office . . .

Last month, the United Nations Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (UNESCO) passed two resolutions denying any connection between the city of Jerusalem and the Jewish people, ceding to Islam a religious monopoly on many of Judaism’s holiest sites. Full story: breakingisraelnews.com

Comment: The Temple will be rebuilt and United States and Russia may well team up under Rome to rebuild the Temple after Israel is utterly defeated, disarmed, abandoned by most of her non-Semitic self-styled Jews, reoccupied by genuine Israelites in Jacob’s lineage, after the US mainland is invaded and a Satan-incarnate Pope is ruling one world government from Jerusalem, a corpus separatum between the State of Palestine and the State of Israel as per UN Resolution 181 of November 29, 1947. The partnership between the USA (refinanced by Vatican gold) and Russia (re-colonised and Judaeo-communised) will fail in the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week when the Pope forces Rome’s mark of the beast and Europe switches alleigence to Russia. This will see the nuclear anihilation of Vatican City State and the United States of America followed by Armageddon and the consummation.

These and other Scriptural realities have been overlooked by nowtheendbegins.com. The end-time began on about March 8, 1963 when Christ fulfilled Revelatuion 4, 5, and 10:1-4.


Century after Balfour Declaration: UK should face Uncomfortable Home Truths

Zionism

November 6, 2016 — This month marks the ninety-ninth anniversary of the Balfour Declaration and the beginning in earnest of preparations for next year’s centenary . . .

“His Majesty’s government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”

. . . in contrast to Israel’s insistence today that Zionism merely equates to “Jewish self-determination,” the creation of a “Jewish state” in Palestine directly contradicted the principle of self-determination . . . At the time of Balfour’s letter, Jews constituted approximately 10 percent of Palestine’s population (at the time of the first Zionist Congress in 1897, that figure was 4 percent). Even by 1947, Palestinian Arabs were the easy majority—two-thirds of the population . . . “if the crude arithmetical conception of democracy were to be applied now or at some early stage in the future to Palestinian conditions, the majority that would rule would be the Arab majority . . . the Zionist dream ran counter to the principles of democracy” . . . Full story: middleeasteye.net

Comment: Britain’s Prime Minister Lord Salisbury (Robert Arthur Talbot Gascoyne-Cecil) retired in 1902 and was succeeded by his nephew, Arthur James Balfour. Such an ardent Zionist, when he lost the Prime Ministership, rather than retiring gracefully, Balfour continued in politics as Minister for Foreign Affairs. A demotion, yes, but Arthur James was continuing his work for a ‘greater cause,’ and when he finally did retire, he and his nieces and nephews continued their work for ‘Zionism.’ So from 1902 when his Foreign Secretary Joseph Chamberlain’s offer of Uganda was rejected by Theodor Herzl, Balfour was at the required post to ensure Rothschild’s moves to obtain Palestine were covered (Arthur James Balfour was a Zionist).


Yale Professor lets Students skip Test in Wake of Trump Victory

November 10, 2016 — “I am getting many heartfelt notes from students who are in shock over the election returns,” the professor wrote in an email to his students, according to Yale Daily News Managing Editor Jon Victor tweeted.

“The ones I find most upsetting are those who fear, rightly or wrongly, for their own families. These students are requesting that the exam be postponed. On the other hand, I am sure that many students have sacrificed to prepare for the test . . . Therefore, I am making the exam optional.”

[These students are intellectually unqualified to study, having ignored Killary’s record of global bloodshed and destruction, treason and criminality- Ed].

The professor told the class he would “calculate each student’s grade both with and without the exam.

The decision irked many social media users, who were quick to blast the students on Wednesday. “And we wonder why they feel entitled and want everything paid for. What a joke,” wrote one Twitter user. “Oh, how our hearts should bleed for these poor, shattered little snowflake-children” . . . Full story: fellowshipoftheminds.com

Comment: I have been reading up on the soon-coming invasion of the United States, and with Judaized commo educators and wimpish students the US is defeated already. These students are emotive puppets of the Jew George Soros, incapable of thought and analysis and absent self-discipline. Simultaneous ‘spontaneous’ protests were organized in 25 cities.


Malachi 3:13 – 4:4

tithing

Let us review and explain Malachi 3:10 – 12. In plain language God is the Logos, and like you and me He is only as good as His Word. His instruction to believers is “make a punctual and full payment into the storehouse of all tithes that there may be provision for the daily sacrifices, and the maintenance of My ministers—then priests and Levites—now the fivefold ministry under the New Testament. Make this an experiment to test My faithfulness to My Word of promise and see if I don’t open the windows of heaven for you. There is now a dearth and a scarcity of produce; trade is slow, but prove Me now and see whether your plenty is not in proportion to the free-will whereby you bring in your tithes and heave offerings; and whether I will not immediately send you showers of blessing, whereby trade improves and the earth brings forth in great abundance”.

If you are unsure of God, put His Word to the test. If you honour your Word and it seems He has neglected to honour His Word, might it be that you are serving the traditions of men that make the Word of God of no effect (Matthew 15:1-9)?

To “open the windows of heaven” is a metaphor expressing God’s showering down plenty, while “shutting up heaven” denotes scarcity (Deuteronomy 11:17). The Lord will pour out a blessing until you say, “It is sufficient”; and your acquaintances will see by your situation that you are blessed and a happy people; your home, business or country will be recognized as blessed because of your obedience, and this will bring Him honour.

Malachi 3:13 – 18, “Your hard words [of doubt in opposition to the conversation of the godly have been injurious, void of all reverence and duty, and blasphemous], constraining Me to prove Myself to you that I am ‘the God of judgment’ [you doubters sought in Malachi 2:17. As in verse 3:8] you say in your hearts, “What have we spoken against You?”

[What you have secretly said in your hearts I will declare openly]: You have said, “It is vain to serve God:” and “What profit is it that we have kept His ordinance, and walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts? We now deem the arrogant blessed; evil-doers not only prosper; but when they put God to the test they escape [judgment owing to His longsuffering love].”

The wicked prosper but their carnal minds see no benefit in obedience and fail to recognize material rewards are temporal and they will ultimately suffer loss. When we tithe we are not giving of our increase but returning His due of the increase He has provided us. Psalm 50:10, “Every beast of the forest is Mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.” If we do not have sufficient trust and faith to give God what is His property we cannot have faith for Him to provide the ninety percent for our needs. This is presumptuous sin (Psalm 19:13; II Peter 2:10).

Word Bride“You are cursed with a curse for you have robbed [defrauded, cheated] God in tithes and offerings,” and the election is off! Christ is marrying a W_O_R_D Bride and Malachi 3:8-9 is His Word.

“[But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound (Romans 5:20) and] those who feared the Lord conversed with one another [in love]: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a Book of Remembrance [called the Lamb’s Book of Life] was written before Him for those who feared the Lord, and thought upon His Name. [Herein is their reward—the promise of God’s Word—unseen and therefore unrecognized by those without faith (II Corinthians 5:7)]. They shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, My peculiar treasure on the Day of the Lord (Exodus 19:5; Ephesians 1:14; II Thessalonians 2:14; Titus 2:14; I Peter 2:9; Malachi 4:3); and I will spare them [when I pour out My wrath], as a man spares his own son who serves him in filial obedience. Then once more you will return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him”.

Psalm 103:11-13, “For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who reverence Him. As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us; like as a father has compassion for his children, so the Lord tenderly sympathizes with those who revere Him”.

A prophet is a sign of oncoming judgment as witnessed by Noah, Moses, Jonah, Elijah, Daniel, John the Baptist, Jesus Christ, Paul and Brother Branham. Speaking to natural Israel under the Old Covenant which foreshadowed spiritual Israel under the New Covenant, Amos (3:1-8) cited five natural types to confirm that “the God of Judgment” cannot pour out His wrath on the great and dreadful Day of the Lord without first revealing His secret counsel to His servants the prophets to warn claimants to His Covenant and show them the way of righteousness whereby they may repent of their iniquity, seek pardon, peace and grace and escape the wrath that is to come by faith in Him who died and rose again.

Malachi 4:1-6 warns of the Day of the Lord and of the spirit of Elijah that will anoint two prophets, one before the close of the dispensation of Law and one before the close of the dispensation of grace. John the Baptist was the Elijah of Malachi 3:1 who introduced Christ’s first Coming. Three years after his death and more that 2,000 years before “the great and dreadful Day of the Lord” his ministry “turned the heart of the apostolic fathers to those who would be born-again as God’s children,” not His servant nation, Israel (John 8:35). William Branham (1909 – 1965) was the Elijah of Malachi 4:6b whose ministry restored the heart of God’s children back to “the faith once delivered to our apostolic fathers (Jude 1:3) before He smites the earth with a curse [in the consummation turning it to nuclear cinders]”.

Malachi 4:1-3, “For, behold, the Day of the Lord is coming, burning like a furnace [as foretold in Malachi 3:2], when all the arrogant happy murmurers, heathens and all evildoers will be stubble: and the day that comes will burn them up, says the Lord of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root or branch [to recover]” (Isaiah 5:24; Zephaniah 1:14-18; Obadiah 1:18; Matthew 3:12). False Christian tares, thorns and briers will be cast into the fire with all sin and corruption (Matthew 13:40-42). As it was in the days of Sodom this is the manner whereby earth will purify itself for the millennium; earth’s crust shall fracture and fresh lava will overflow and dissolve the old world.

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. And as it was in the days of Malachi, many, even of those who have served God, were borderline believers: they recognized the prophet and his ministry, learned quotations from his Message, but never took them to God’s Holy Bible to ensure they personally were rooted and grounded in the Absolute. Today the last Pentecostal saints are passing while we remain. Doubts without faith have darkened trust and the whispers of their own hearts were reinforced by the mutterings of websites like believethesign or seekyethetruth, “turning away their ears from the Truth unto fables.” Now as “scoffers walking after their own lusts, they ask, Where is the promise of His Coming [though they once knew He has come and is present]? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation” (II Timothy 3:4; II Peter 3:3-4).

Brother Branham said, “And we know that the time is near at hand. We see the world in a quivering, shaking condition, knowing that the atoms will soon be burning, and the heavens will be on fire—as the apostle Peter said—and “will burn with fervent heat” (Psalm 50:3; Isaiah 66:15-16; Daniel 7:9-10). The atoms of the earth will catch fire soon. There’ll be a relay, and there’ll be not even dust left of the people”.

“And then what, Lord? Maybe five hundred years from now an old tombstone, blow over yonder in the howling winds, the burning blistering sun, when it lays near the sun for its purification before the millennium, maybe the name of some of the people here will be written on that. Where will their wandering soul be?” (Conferences with God, #61-0410).

Malachi 4:2, But for you [in My Book of Remembrance who believe its promises, rejoice in expectation of its blessings, tremble at its threatenings, walk humbly with God] and revere My Name, the Sun of righteousness [Christ whose Light clothed the primitive Church (Revelation 12:1; Psalm 84:11; Isaiah 60:1-3, 19-20; Luke 1:78-79; Revelation 19:17) shall arise [not destroying like the fire, but] with healing in its beams [restoring natural life to this purified planet]; and you will go forth leaping with joy like calves let out from the stall to pasture”—a simile describing the glorified righteous returning to the earth with Christ.

Malachi 4:3, “And you will tread down the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I shall do this, says the Lord of hosts.” In this life the arrogant evildoers often prosper and are happy; they tempt God and are even delivered (Malachi 3:15). But at this point in the Day of the Lord “He who exalted himself shall be abased, and he who humbled himself shall be exalted.” The elect will go forth [to Hinnom, a type of Gehenna], and look upon the carcases of the men who have transgressed against the Lord, for their worm will not die, neither shall their fire be quenched, and they shall be an abhorring to all flesh (Isaiah 66:24; 26:5-6; 63:2-3).

In Malachi 4:4 God admonished the Israelites: remember the Law of Moses My servant, which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments” because you will have no more prophets for four hundred years. Then “My messenger John the Baptist will prepare the way before Me—your Messiah and KINSMAN Redeemer manifest in virgin-born flesh” (Malachi 3:1; Isaiah 40:3; I Timothy 3:16). Until that time you are to follow the institution and obey the statutes and judgments delivered to Moses.

Speaking through Moses the Lord God said, “I will raise up a Prophet from among the Israelites, like you, and I will put My Words in His mouth; and He will speak to them all that I shall command Him (John 8:26). And whoever refuses to hearken to My Words which He speaks in My Name shall be utterly destroyed from among the people(Deuteronomy 18:18-19; Acts 3:22-23).

Israel's crest“The written Law was an external shadow of good things to come”—the blessing of Abraham under the New Covenant is the internal reality of God’s will which is His Word engraved in your heart by faith “and man will no longer teach his neighbour, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know Me, from the least to the greatest” (Jeremiah 31:33-34; Hebrews 8:11). The Body or real substance that cast the shadow of the blessings typified by the Law is Christ the Word in you, the hope of glory (Colossians 2:17; Hebrews 8:5-13; 10:1-5). So until John introduced the Body which cast the shadow the Israelites must hold fast to the shadow revealed by Moses and the audible Voice of the Lord from Mount Horeb (Exodus 9:19). In other words, “The secret things [which cast the shadow] belong to the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed [or foreshadowed in the statutes and judgments of the Law] belong to us and to our children forever so that we may do all the Words of this Law” (Deuteronomy 29:29).

Like you and me, Israel was to “walk by faith not by sight” in all of the Light then revealed and watch as God unfolds more Light (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7), thus avoiding presumptuous sin (Psalm 19:13; Deuteronomy 18:20; II Peter 2:10).

Galatians 3:11-27, “It is evident that no man is justified by the Law before God; for, “The just shall live by faith.” And the Law does not rest on faith but makes “works” the conditional ground of justification, and the man who does these things shall live by them”—for without “doing the works” the Law is of no use to men (Romans 2:13, 17, 23; 10:5).

“Christ has redeemed Israelites and proselytes from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us: for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree” that through Jesus Christ the blessing of Abraham might come upon us Gentiles; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith”.

“In terms of human relationships, Brethren, no one annuls or adds to a man’s will once it has been ratified (Revelation 22:18-19). Now the promises were made to Abraham and his seed. The will or testament did not say, “And to His seeds,” referring to many; but as of One, “And to Your Seed,” which is Christ. And this is the point: the Law, which came four hundred and thirty years later, cannot invalidate a Covenant previously ratified by God, so as to annul the promise. For if the inheritance is by the Law, then it is no longer by promise: but God has given it to Abraham by a promise“.

Jesus Messiah“Why then was the Law given? It was a temporary enactment intervening between the promise but only until its fulfilment in Christ. It was added because of transgressions, to make Israelites more fully conscious of their sins by recognizing them as transgressions of the Law, so as to make them long for the promised Seed and Saviour to whom the promise was made (Romans 4:15; Galatians 3:23-24); it was given to the hand of Moses, a mediator (Deuteronomy 5:5; Acts 7:38), and promulgated by angels” (Acts 7:53; Hebrews 2:2). Of course before the Law there was no transgression and sin was not imputed to men (Romans 5:13). Therefore “the Law of sin and death was a curse” because no man can keep the Law which would condemn and imprison men for sin but could not justify and release them from sin (Romans 5:20-21; 7:13).

“Angels are all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who shall be heirs of salvation” (Hebrews 1:14). Speaking of the new birth of the elect Brother Branham said, “Then after you recognize the very Word of God was Eagle Food, then you left the other thing. You’ve then been formed into the living image of the living God. You heard from your theophany. “If this earthly body is dissolved, we have one waiting” (Who is this Melchisedec? p. 17:88; II Corinthians 5:1). The angels or messengers of Deuteronomy 33:2-3, Psalm 68:17 and Acts 7:38 were the theophanies of saints, prophets, and our Lord Jesus Himself. The angels of Acts 7:53 and Hebrews 2:2-3 are prophets who in person or by their writings in Scripture promulgated the Law which God gave to Moses personally, as He personally gave the promise to Abram, and as the virgin-born Jesus He communicated the Gospel personally to His disciples who were the messengers or angels of Acts 1:12-26 who witnessed Jesus Messiah from His anointing after baptism to His resurrection.

Hebrews 2:2-9 “If the Old Testament promulgated by angels [messengers, prophets] was steadfast [being THUS SAITH THE LORD (Galatians 1:8-9)], and every transgression and disobedience [to the Word] received a just recompense of reward. How shall we escape, if we neglect the great salvation of the Gospel which at the first began to be spoken by our Lord Jesus Himself [who is more than a [prophet (Hebrews 1:1-14)], and was confirmed [personally] by the angels [New Testament saints, apostles and prophets] who heard him; God also bearing [them] witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to His own will (Mark 16:15-20; Luke 1:2; I John 1:1-5)?

“For God did not subject the “last days” or Messianic age of redemption and completion which succeeded the Mosaic age to Old Testament angels. But one [angel, the prophet David], testified in Psalm 8:4-6, saying, “What is man, that You are mindful of him? Or Jesus Christ the Son of man whom you honour so highly? You made Him a little lower than the angels; You crowned Him with glory and honour, and set Him over the works of Your hands: You have put all things in subjection under His feet. For in subjecting all things under Him, You left nothing that is not subject to Him. At present we see not all things are subjected to Him. But we see Him who was made a little lower than the angels—Jesus, because of the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour, that by the grace of God He should taste death for every man”  [that we might inherit all things] . . .

As Spirit or theophany God could not die or even bleed so He had to be made lower than the Angels in order to fulfil the part of our KINSMAN Redeemer, taste death and overcome the grave. “He must reign, till He has put all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be destroyed is death” (I Corinthians 15:25-26).

Acts 2:32-36, “This Jesus has God raised up, and [although you Jews will not admit to it] we all are witnesses of this. Being therefore exalted at the right hand of God, and receiving of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, He has poured forth what you both see and hear. For [the angel] David is not ascended into the heavens [under the blood of bulls and goats]: but he said himself, The Lord [Yahweh] said to my Lord [Messiah], Sit on My right hand, until I make your enemies your judgment seat. [Now, after the Blood of Christ was shed and the heavenly sanctuary cleansed of the accumulated sins of all the Old Testament saints, they could resurrect in glorified bodies, and ascend typing Revelation 15:8]. Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God has made that same Jesus, whom you have crucified, both Lord and Christ.” So is Jesus a third person of the trinity, or is He the entire trinity? He is the fulness of the Godhead bodily (Hebrews, Chapter Two, p. 53:116-154, 176, 200).

After His resurrection Jesus said, All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth, go into all the world and preach the Gospel to everyone of Adam’s race” (Matthew 28:19-20). God and man have united in a NEW CREATION: the Logos made flesh was crucified and is raised for our justification. “God will be with us even in us forevermore.” The throne and resting place of the Spirit, once in heaven, is now in the heart of His Son Christ Jesus and in His seed (Isaiah 53:10). This is the mystery of God’s will purposed in Himself (Ephesians 1:5-9).

Hebrews 2:16, “God did not lay hold on the nature of angels to help them” as they do not need redemption, and dominion belongs to men (Genesis 1:28). So in order to undertake the work of human redemption it was necessary for Him to become “the promised Seed [singular] of Abraham” in whom “all nations of Adam’s race will be blessed”  (Genesis 22:18) when they see God in Jesus Christ fulfil the part of Adam’s KINSMAN Redeemer. For every believer baptized into Christ is Abraham’s Seed and an heir according to the promise (Hebrews 2:9, 12; Psalm 22:22-31).

In Galatians 3:19 we learned that the Law was delivered to Israel in the hand of a mediator, the prophet Moses, and promulgated or enforced by prophets and judges: wise men and women. The Law was a contract involving two parties: God and Israel. As a contract the Law was conditional and if the conditions are not observed the whole contract is broken. Since Israel dishonoured their contract they forfeited the blessings annexed thereto and the curse of the penalty prevailed.

Galatians 3:20, “Now mediation involves at least two parties. A mediator is not a mediator of one party, but God stands alone as the sovereign Giver of the promise to Abraham face to face.” God’s promise to Abraham is pure unconditional grace. He gave the promise, and He will honour His promise despite the mistakes and failings of His elect. “For His gifts of grace and His calling are unconditional and irrevocable”  (Romans 11:29).

Romans 11:28-32, “By rejecting the Gospel and their indignation at its being preached to the Gentiles, the Israelites [having breached their contract through opposition to the divine will] are regarded as enemies of God, excluded from the kingdom and family of God for your benefit and blessing“.

Romans 11:11, 15, “Did they stumble that they should fall? God forbid: but through their false step salvation is come to us Gentiles to provoke Israel to jealousy [as Moses prophesied in (Deuteronomy 32:21; Romans 10:19)—for emulation is a legitimate stimulus to what is good] . . . For if the temporary rejection of the Israel nation means the reconciliation of the [Gentile] world, what will the acceptance and rebirth of the nation of 144,000 elect Israelites be, but life from the dead?”

Continuing Romans 11:28, “But as touching the election of Abraham and his seed, they are beloved [even in their state of exclusion from the Kingdom and family of God] because of His promises to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob”; [hence God’s provision of grace to righteous non-elect Israelite martyes under the Fifth Seal (Matthew 24:9-13; Revelation 6:9-11)]. “For His gifts of grace and His calling are unconditional and irrevocable”.

“Just as you, while strangers to Christ, were once disobedient and rebellious towards God but now have obtained mercy through their disobedience and breach of contract; so these Israelites have now been disobedient that through the mercy shown to you they also may obtain mercy [as in Galatians 3:22]. [True grace seeks not to confine God’s favour. Those who find mercy themselves should endeavour that through their mercy others also may obtain mercy]. For God’s purpose was to shut up ALL men by their obstinate opposition to the divine will, causing them to miss the mark (II Corinthians 3:15-16) so that after the experience first of a humbled, condemned state without hope, all the elect of Adam’s race may experience His mercy [undeserved favour] in Christ by grace through faith despite their proven guilt”.

Galatians 3:21-24, “[Because it is inferior to the promise] is the Law contrary to the promises of God? Certainly not; for if a law had been given which could impart life, righteousness [justification and eternal bliss] would be by the Law.” But Moses’ Law was utterly incapable of giving salvation; because it was independent of the promise of grace and offered neither pardon of sin on repentance or invisible marriage union with the Spirit whereby we overcome the worldly nature of our ten senses. “Consequently the Scripture [where the Law is written] has shut up all unto a violation of the divine Law in thought or deed (Romans 11:32; Galatians 3:22), that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. But before faith came, Israelites were kept under the Law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.”

“Wherefore the Law was their schoolmaster until Christ came, that they might be justified by faith. But since faith has come, they are no longer under a schoolmaster, for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God through faith. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Israelite nor Gentile, there is neither slave nor freeman, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise“.

Two thousand years ago Israel rejected the prophet of Malachi 3:1 and his Message for the traditions of the Babylonian Talmud. Thus spiritually blinded by their own choosing they brutally slaughtered Messiah and “to this day when the Old Testament is read, the same vail remains unlifted, because only through faith in Christ is it taken away. Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a vail lies over their hearts; but whenever one turns to the Lord, the vail is removed”.

How late is the hour? Whereas God concluded the Law in Israel’s apostasy, on about March 8, 1968 He fulfilled Revelation 4, 5 and 10:1-4, terminating the Laodicean Church Age in unbelief, Christ’s Mediation for ignorance of the fullness of the Word and redemption. This breach of faith can only be crossed by obedience to a clear revelation of “the Voice of the seventh angel” which will continue shouting his Message until the fullness of the Gentiles comes in. But the world church system rejected this Prophet of Malachi 4:6b for the traditions of men and are “crucifying unto themselves the Son of God afresh” (Hebrews 6:6).

The vail of spiritual blindness has been over the denominational Churches since Christ’s unseen second or (Gk.) ‘parousia’ Coming in 1963 (Revelation 16:13-16). Soon the last Trump will sound and Los Angeles will sink beneath the sea marking the close of the Gentile dispensation and signalling the first resurrection. nl949.htm

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it is good to imagine you are smiling today.

This year’s US presidential election was a countermand to the Establishment’s program to return the world to serfdom, and a rebuff to the City of London and its Council on Foreign Relations, Wall Street, military industrial complex, Pentagon war hawks and corrupt politicians. After the sinking of Los Angeles, and peace achieved by Rome in covenant with the Jewish banksters, the refinancing of the Dollar and union of church and state will “Make America Great Again” as it morphs into “the image unto the Judaeo-Roman beast” (Revelation 13:15). The ‘hidden hand’ always backs both sides and finds more than one way to skin a cat.

Continual propaganda in behalf of the Establishment’s incurably corrupt Killary Clinton drones on relentlessly in the media monopoly following the stratagem Paul Joseph Goebbels attributed to Jewish lies using “the principle which is quite true in itself that in the Big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily.” This is often paraphrased as: “The bigger the lie, the more it will be believed”.

We have an excellent roundup of news items, within which are some thoughtful analyses of the circumstances that have oppressed and beleaguered American citizens in consequence of the vainglorious greed of the dual citizen 1%. In our main article this week we continue our study of the Book of Malachi.

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.

Clintons and Soros launch America’s Purple Revolution

November 11, 2016 — Defeated Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton is not about to ‘go quietly into that good night.’ On the morning after her surprising and unanticipated defeat at the hands of Republican Party upstart Donald Trump, Mrs. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, entered the ball room of the art-deco New Yorker hotel in midtown Manhattan and were both adorned in purple attire. The press immediately noticed the colour and asked what it represented. Clinton spokespeople claimed it was to represent the coming together of Democratic ‘Blue America’ and Republican ‘Red America’ into a united purple blend. This statement was a complete ruse as is known by citizens of countries targeted in the past by the vile political operations of international hedge fund tycoon George Soros.

The Clintons, who both have received millions of dollars in campaign contributions and Clinton Foundation donations from Soros, were, in fact, helping to launch Soros’s ‘Purple Revolution’ in America. The Purple Revolution will resist all efforts by the Trump administration to push back against the globalist policies of the Clintons and soon-to-be ex-President Barack Obama. The Purple Revolution will also seek to make the Trump administration a short one through Soros-style street protests and political disruption . . . Full story: strategic-culture.org


Big Liar going to Washington or Tribune of the People?

November 10, 2016 — The establishment worldwide is incensed with Donald Trump’s electoral success, and the wicked witch still haunts the corridors of corrupt power. Particularly the fifth column tax payer-funded BBC and ABC. This excellent assessment of Donald Trump was written before his victory was declared. Full story: globalresearch.ca


The Working Class won the Election

November 9, 2016 — Trump said that he will put Hillary in prison. He should first put her on trial for treason and war crimes along with all of the neoconservatives. That would clear the decks for peace with the other two major nuclear powers over which the neoconservatives seek hegemony. Although the neoconservatives would still have contacts in the hidden deep state, it would make it difficult for the vermin to organize false flag operations or an assassination. Rogue elements in the military/security complex could still bring off an assassination, but without Neocons in the government a cover-up would be more difficult.

Trump has more understanding and insight than his opponents realize. For a man such as Trump to risk acquiring so many powerful enemies and to risk his wealth and reputation, he had to have known that the people’s dissatisfaction with the ruling establishment meant he could be elected president. We won’t know what to expect until we see who are the Secretaries and Assistant Secretaries. If it is the usual crowd, we will know Trump has been captured . . . Hillary is down, but not the Oligarchs. Full story: paulcraigroberts.org


Real Differences between Clinton & Trump

November 06, 2016 — Multinational corporations . . . marked the rise of the NWO of neoliberal globalization, as well as . . . a Transnational Elite that informally runs it, with the help of the transnational economic and political-military institutions that the same elites created, such as the IMF, WB, WTO and NATO. These fundamentals may well be summarized by what is called euphemistically ‘the four “freedoms”‘—the free movement of goods and services, capital and labour. This is what the US elections (and the Brexit referendum before that) are all about.

Clinton is in fact a typical ‘product of the system’ . . . systematically promoted by it . . . to carry out faithfully the demands of the elites in the implementation of these “freedoms” and what they imply both at the domestic but also the foreign and geopolitical levels. She is well known for her criminal role in the massacre of the Libyan people . . . at the hands of barbaric terrorists . . . funded by the Transnational Elite and supported by the State Department, which she headed . . .

On the other hand, Donald Trump, although a product of the same system . . . is a self-made product of it . . . without any direct or indirect assistance by it and its institutions (mass media, economic, political, academic, and cultural institutions). No wonder he has been the target of an unprecedented attack by all of these elites and institutions . . . savagely attacked by them . . . because he is not as controllable . . . as all previous US presidents—not to mention the Clintons . . . executive assistants of the elites, par excellence. Hillary is therefore the perfect candidate to carry out their criminal plans (the first woman candidate and a perfectly controllable ambitious politician), exactly as Obama was . . . (the first black candidate—a privileged black of course—and a perfectly controllable ambitious politician).

For decades, presidents and prime ministers, policymakers and pundits have told voters there is only one direction of travel: free trade. Now comes Brexit and Donald Trump—and the horrible suspicion that the public won’t buy it any more. And the elites don’t know what to do; apart from keep insisting the public listen . . . globalization is a class issue . . . Large segments of the population in advanced countries have not been doing well: in the US, the bottom 90% has endured income stagnation for a third of a century. Median income for full-time male workers is actually lower in real (inflation-adjusted) terms than it was 42 years ago. At the bottom, real wages are comparable to their level 60 years ago.

Man of Sin: Obama says Illegal Aliens can vote because they are US Citizens

Obama

November 6, 2016 — Woman who identifies herself as a Millennial “Dreamer,” i.e., she illegally came into the US when she was a minor (defined as younger than 16 years old): “The Millennial Dreamers, undocumented citizens—and I call them citizens because they contribute to this country—are fearful of voting. So if I vote, will Immigration know where I live, will they come for my family and deport us?”

Obama: “Not true, and the reason is, first of all, when you vote, you are a citizen yourself, and there is not a situation when the voting rolls somehow are transferred over and people start investigating. The sanctity of the vote is strictly confidential.” Full story: fellowshipoftheminds.com

Comment: Words no longer have meaning: “Undocumented citizens” is a new Orwellian oxymoron. Recall that Obama had studied Constitutional law at Harvard Law School. His course of study must have been How to Subvert the US Constitution. Why isn’t Congress impeaching this outlaw and disgrace to the presidency?


FBI Agents: Comey ‘Stood in the Way’ of Clinton Email Investigation

October 17, 2016 — “This is a textbook case where a grand jury should have convened but was not. That is appalling,” an FBI special agent who has worked public corruption and criminal cases said of the decision . . . the bureau did not bother to search Clinton’s house during the investigation . . . “There should have been a complete search of their residence . . .

President Barack Obama appointed him to FBI director in 2013 replacing out going-director Robert Mueller. “Comey was never an investigator or special agent . . . “All the trained investigators agree that there is a lot to be prosecuted but he stood in the way” . . . more FBI agents will be talking about the problems at bureau and specifically the handling of the Clinton case by Comey when Congress comes back into session and decides to force them to testify by subpoena . . .
Full story: dailycaller.com

Comment: The FBI official in charge of the investigation was Comey’s deputy director of the FBI Andrew McCabe. His wife Dr. Jill McCabe ran for the State senate of Virginia in 2015. Hillary’s “Ally,” Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe, an influential Democrat with longstanding ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, allocated $675,000 in support of Jill McCabe’s candidacy. His political organization gave nearly $500,000 to the election campaign of the wife of an official at the FBI who later helped oversee the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s email use.” In late January 2016, Andrew McCabe was promoted to the rank of Deputy Director of the FBI and put charge of the investigation into Hillary’s Emails (globalresearch.ca).

Time to defund all CSIRO Global Warming Activities & Conferences

November 9, 2016 — For years now CSIRO and their UN/IPCC puppet-masters have claimed “climate science is settled.” If so, why are Australian governments still wasting some $150M annually on creating climate scares and producing propaganda for a political war on carbon energy and carbon dioxide? Australia should cease all government funding for global warming “research” and carbon-centric climate models and leave the honest, useful and difficult business of weather forecasting to the BOM . . . “The Weather Bureau”.

The neurotic focus of Australian politicians and their research puppets on the UN man-made global warming agenda has starved useful research into real factors that do affect global climate. These include cycles and oscillations in solar activity, cosmic rays and clouds, crustal and magmatic movements, volcanic eruptions, and the periodic changes in planetary orbits and axial tilts within the solar system. Australia is an island surrounded by the vast oceans of the Southern Hemisphere. CSIRO is mesmerised by atmospheric greenhouse mirages and largely ignores the causes and timing of ENSO oscillations, the amount and locations of submarine volcanism, and the timing, drivers and locations of deep ocean currents and upwellings.

If CSIRO and the government Universities cannot do such basic research in our region their funds should be diverted to the deficit, or applied to weather-proofing our infrastructure. While CSIRO remains Mesmerised by Greenhouse Models, here is a possible climate future they appear to be ignoring: “GLOBAL FREEZING: 15-year ICE AGE to hit in just 4 years as the sun prepares to hibernate.” Full story: carbon-sense.com


9/11 100% Inside Job!

October 24, 2016 — With Assange and Snowden, the truth has now moved to the east. The old Gladio have been replaced with Gladio B. Full story: youtube.com  youtube.com

Comment: I understand the United States has recognized someone as ‘President’ of Xinjiang, an Autonomous Region of China that borders Russia and Pakistan, populated by mainly Islamic Uyghur people. Is the US treating Xinjiang as if it were a sovereign nation rather than the largest Chinese administrative division, the eighth largest country subdivision in the world? Apparently the CIA is interfering in Xinjiang as it planned and executed the coup in Ukraine.


How to Kill Goyim and influence People: Leading Israeli Rabbis defend Manual for killing Non-Jews

Zionism

When I went into the Jewish religious book emporium, Pomeranz, in central Jerusalem to inquire about the availability of a book called Torat Ha’Melech, or The King’s Torah, a commotion immediately ensued. “Are you sure you want it?” the owner, M. Pomeranz, asked me half-jokingly. “The Shabak [Israel’s internal security service] is going to want a word with you if you do.” As customers stopped browsing and began to stare in my direction, he’s pointed to a security camera affixed to a wall. “See that?” he told me. “It goes straight to the Shabak!”

As soon as it was published in 2010, Torat Ha’Melech sparked a national uproar. The controversy began when an Israeli tabloid panned the book’s contents as “230 pages on the laws concerning the killing of non-Jews, a kind of guidebook for anyone who ponders the question of if and when it is permissible to take the life of a non-Jew.” According to the book’s author, Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira, “Non-Jews are “uncompassionate by nature” and should be killed in order to “curb their evil inclinations.” “If we kill a gentile who has violated one of the seven [fraudulent Noahide] commandments… there is nothing wrong with the murder,” Shapira insisted. Citing Jewish law as his source (or at least a very selective interpretation of it) he declared: “There is justification for killing babies if it is clear that they will grow up to harm us, and in such a situation they may be harmed deliberately, and not only during combat with adults” . . .

Comment: The top posts in Israel’s police force are now in the hands of hardline religious settlers who seek to replace civilian law with halakha, which is rabbinical law based on the Talmud. Rahamim Brachyahu was appointed as the chief rabbi for the police force and he supports the King’s Torah.

Malachi 3:7 – 12

Malachi 3:6, “I am the Lord, I change not, and because My gifts and calling are irrevocable (Romans 11:29) you sons of Jacob are not consumed.” In contrast Israel has been a stubborn and rebellious, extremely perverse generation from the inauguration of the nation; children in whom is no faith: within a month you broke God’s Covenant and turned to idolatry (Exodus 32).

In studying Malachi 2:17 – 3:6 we discovered Israel would reject God’s grace and murder Jesus Messiah when He came as “the Prince of Peace,” and in the great tribulation of Daniel’s Seventieth Week after 2,000 years of chastisement under Seven Trumpet judgments an election of 144,000 will repent when “the God of judgment” offers grace.

Israel’s prophets announced beforehand the judgments that would befall the nation and its impostors for continuing their sins throughout the Gentile dispensation, and added the Lord’s gracious promise (Zechariah 1:3). Then “He will finish the transgression, make an end of sins, and make reconciliation for iniquity . . .” (Daniel 9:24).

Malachi 3:7, “From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from My statutes, and have not kept them. Return to Me and I will return to you.” But in self-righteous delusion under the spirit of Laodicea—”supposing you are rich and in need of nothing—not even repentance, “you say, How shall we return?” You persist in justifying your sins, and fain ignorance of your guilt by inquiring “What it is you need to repent of?” As God sent a prophet before the end of the Gentile dispensation to restore the faith once delivered to our apostolic fathers 2,000 years ago, He will send Israel two prophets: one will show whence they fell, and the other will unfold shadows and types through the past 2,000 years of apostasy to introduce them to the Son of Man as King of kings and Judge. Do you see the similitude to Laodicea?

Jesus' baptismFour centuries after Malachi, John the Baptist fulfilled Isaiah 40:3 and Malachi 3:1, “baptizing in the wilderness and preaching the baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins” (Mark 1:4). In Malachi 3:8 the Prophet shows the people their sin and lays it on their conscience: “Will a man rob [defraud, cheat] God? Yet you have robbed Me [since you have defrauded Me]. But you say, How have we robbed You? In tithes and [heave] offerings. You are cursed with a curse: for you have robbed Me, the whole nation of you”.

In order to properly understand God’s requirement for tithing we must review Numbers 16 – 18. Korah, a descendant of Levi conspired with Dathan, Abiram and On from the Tribe of Reuben, inciting a rebellion against Moses, supported by two hundred and fifty well-known leaders of the community. They charged Moses with an ambitious and unwarrantable usurpation of authority by arbitrarily withdrawing the right of primogeniture which had vested the hereditary dignity of the priesthood in the first-born of every tribe and transferring the hereditary exercise of sacred duties to a branch of his house of Levi; and this gross instance of partiality, to the permanent detriment of others, was a sufficient ground for refusing allegiance to his government. Another cause of jealousy and dissatisfaction to the Reubenites, Jacob’s first-born, was the advancement of Judah to the leadership among the tribes (Jude 1:11).

“Everyone in Israel has been chosen of the Lord, and He is with all of us. What right have you to claim we must obey you?” Moses fell on his face, indicating his humble and earnest desire that God would intervene, and then told Korah and his company “God will show you who is holy and whom He has chosen as His priest. Tomorrow all of you light your censers and put incense upon them before the Lord”.

In the morning they all presented themselves and the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, “Separate yourselves from this congregation that I may consume them in a moment.” Moses and Aaron interceded for On and the two hundred and fifty who repented, and the ground opened up and swallowed Korah, Dathan and Abiram, their families and all of their possessions (Numbers 16:17-35).

I Chronicles 16:22 says, “Touch not My anointed, and do My prophets no harm.” God goes before His people and He is not mocked.

A minister came into the healing line and the Holy Spirit spoke through His Prophet, “There’s nothing wrong with you, you have no disease at all”.

He said, “Oh, yes I do.” He said, “Look on my card down there that they got”.

“I don’t care what you got on your card; you haven’t got nothing wrong with you”.

He said, “I’ve got it. I got it stated on my card”.

“I don’t know anything about your card; I never see that. You just get a card. Anything you want to put on it, you put on it. But I don’t see that, the ministers get them. You might have had it and maybe you had a faith and was healed”.

“Oh,” he said, “That’s what it is, is it,” turned around.

And just then I looked and there was a vision. I said, “Why has the Devil put in your heart to do that?” I said, “You’re a Church of Christ minister.” Last night you set with a man with a gray suit and a red tie. And you set at a table had a little green cloth hanging over it; there was a blond headed woman setting next to you, and you said it was telepathy. And you come to this meeting today and wrote that on there, thinking you could pass it through and make a telepathy out of it to up trip God’s Spirit.” I said, “You’re the one exposed”.

And just then the man setting up there; he said, “Mr. Branham, I’m the guy that was with him.” Said, “That’s my wife setting right here, was with him”.

And I said, “The things that you put on your card, you have. Both cancer and TB.” And he fell down on the platform. But the last time I heard him, I never heard no more, just a letter from some of the people that he was in a serious condition. So we’re not playing church” (Thirsting for Life, #57-0630).

Brother Branham said, “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 (Revelation 18:21-24).

“O, Capernaum,” said Jesus, “thou who exalted into heaven will be brought down into hell, for if the mighty works had been done in Sodom and Gomorrah, it’d have been standing till this day.” And Sodom and Gomorrah lays at the bottom of the Dead Sea, and Capernaum’s in the bottom of the sea.

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

“The very next morning a sullen mob confronted Moses and Aaron, saying, You have killed the Lord’s people. Aaron made an atonement for the people but a plague had already begun and 14,700 more died before the plague was stopped”  (Numbers 16:41-50). This draws us back to Malachi 3:7: “From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from My statutes, and have not kept them.” This controversy with Moses and Aaron concerning the priesthood was of such a nature and magnitude as required this decisive and authoritative settlement. The remarkable character and permanent effect of this plague in which all of the people were made direct participants removed all doubts and silenced all future murmuring regarding the holder of the office.

“The Lord told Aaron, “You, your sons and your family are to bear the iniquity for offenses connected with the sanctuary [such as you have just experienced]; you and your sons alone shall bear the iniquity of the priesthood” (Numbers 18:1). Henceforth the Levites shall do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation: no one other than a Levite may perform or assist in any way the sacred duties in the Tabernacle. The Levites must not touch any of the sacred articles or the altar which are committed to the priests whose servants they were; obedience to these instructions will ensure that God’s wrath will never again fall upon the people of Israel.

Hereditary ministers and ‘apostolic succession’ have no place in Christ’s Body the Church, for the veil was rent from top to bottom; the way into the Holy of Holies is known and every born-again Christian is a priest or intercessor to the Lord (II Corinthians 5:15-21). Although “the gifts and calling of God are irrevocable” being ordained by His foreknowledge (Romans 11:29) “not all are apostles, or prophets, or teachers, or workers of miracles [but all must display the Token]” (I Corinthians 12:4 – 13:13). Like the Levites, God’s New Testament ministers are anointed for their office. He ordained five distinct offices of ministry to edify and bring His elect to maturity in the faith so they would always have a ready answer for sinners who inquired of the hope within their heart. These offices of apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher will be in the Body “’til we all come in the unity of the faith, fulfilling Christ’s prayer that we all may be one; as the Father is in Jesus, and He in the Father, that we also may be one in them” (Ephesians 4:8-16).

It is a mistake to conduct regular house meetings in the absence of the pastor, a minister or born-again brother who is an elder by virtue of his experience in the common faith to keep the doctrine true to God’s unchanging Word. His absence is likely to lead to errors or teachings not sanctioned by the pastor, causing confusion that can separate the Brethren.

This is established by Paul’s instruction to his elder: “Titus, my true child in the common faith: Grace, mercy and peace . . . I left you in Crete so that you might correct the defects and appoint elders in every town as I directed you, men who are blameless, the husband of one wife, with believing children not accused of being profligate or unruly. For a bishop must, as God’s steward, be irreproachable, not self-willed or quick-tempered, or a drunkard, or pugnacious, or greedy for dishonest gain, but hospitable, a lover of all that is good, master of himself, upright, holy, and self-controlled; he must hold firm to the faithful Word as he has been taught, that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to refute those who contradict it” (Titus 1:4-9).

In addition to the God-ordained five-fold ministry the local Church or its pastor may elect laymen elders to office for a time as deacons to maintain conduct and order, to whom the pastor may delegate other responsibilities. Bishops are lay elders with an ability to teach the doctrine of the pastor (I Timothy 1:3). Their authority is restricted to the local assembly and they are subject to their own pastor.

From Numbers 18:20-32 we learn that the Levites were allotted no inheritance of broad acres among the children of Israel. In place of an inheritance—the tithes, said to be offered to the Lord—were given to the Levites who were to depend entirely upon Him who liberally provided for them out of His own portion, the tithe of the twelve tribes, so that exempt from the cares and labours of worldly business they might devote themselves exclusively to His service.

Numbers 18:24, “The tithes of the children of Israel, which they offer as a heave offering to the Lord, I have given to the Levites to inherit: therefore I have said unto them, Among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance”.

According to Leviticus 27:30 and Deuteronomy 14:22, the Israelites were to tithe of their corn, wine and oil, and of the firstlings of their flock and herd for the maintenance of the Levites. In turn the Levites were to give up to the Lord a heave offering of the best of all of their tithes to Aaron the priest.

Following their return from Babylon we learn, “The portions of the Levites had not been given to them: for the Levites and the singers, who were supposed to conduct the worship services, had returned to their little plots in order to sustain themselves. Then Nehemiah contended with the rulers, and demanded, Why is the house of God forsaken? And he called the Levites back, and set them in their stations. Then all the people of Judah brought their tithes of grain, the new wine and the oil into the storehouses” (Nehemiah 13:10-12).

Because the Judeans had refused to give God His due by withholding their tithes and offerings, the whole nation was “cursed with a curse” as God withheld the blessings of agricultural bounty from them.

Verse 10, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this, says the Lord of hosts, whether I will not open the windows of heaven for you, and pour out a superabundant blessing for you? And I will rebuke the devourer [or ravaging locust] for your sakes, and he will not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither will your vine cast her fruit in the field before it ripens, says the Lord of hosts. [In consequence of which] all nations will call you blessed: for you will be a delightsome land, says the Lord of hosts”.

Some people believe tithing was only Old Testament Law? Christians are duty bound to tithe ten percent of their net increase, income or profit after deducting the costs of production. The tithe is paid to your pastor who feeds you Spiritual food in due season. This is not your money but God’s money and is not to be given to a widow woman or some charitable or political cause. Our first obligation is to pay our tithes, then meet family responsibilities, settle any lingering debts, and what remains is ours to spend.

The tithe is not church property, it is the income your pastor has to live on and spend as he pleases, if is insufficient for his needs he will have to work. In turn he will tithe of his increase to ministers who feed his soul. In Genesis 14 and Hebrews 7 Abram paid tithes under God’s Covenant of grace, then God commanded Moses and the Israelites to pay tithes under the Law. We who are the beneficiaries of God’s promise to Abraham are also bound to pay tithes.

In I Corinthians 9:1-14, Paul tells how he has been practicing self-denial out of love to the Lord and his brethren, and how in a far higher manner than he demanded of them he had renounced his own rights and prerogatives for the sake of winning souls and the Gospel. Though he was born free and is “free from all men, yet he has made himself servant to all, that he might gain the more.” As an apostle he held the highest office and was an eye-witness to Jesus Who spoke to him from the Shekinah on the Damascus Road (Acts 9:22-26).

“If we have sown spiritual things in you, is it too much to expect that we should reap material benefits? Since others enjoy this rightful claim on you, shouldn’t we more so? Nevertheless we have not made use of this right; but endure anything rather than put an obstacle in the way of the Gospel of Christ. Don’t you know that those who minister in the temple make their living from the temple, and those who tend the altar share in the altar gifts? Likewise the Lord commanded that those who proclaim the Gospel should live from the Good News”.

If you read to verse 19 you will see Paul employed natural types to illustrate spiritual antitypes and explained how the five-fold New Testament ministers live by the tithes of the saints precisely as the Levites and priests under the Old Testament lived from the tithes of the faithful.

Paul provides a second witness on tithing in I Timothy 5:17-21. These elders are all five-fold ministers and among the eminent men were associated those of moderate ability.

“Let the elders who govern well be recognized as worthy of double honour, [not a two-fold tithe but higher esteem], especially they who labour in instructing and teaching the (Gk.) ‘logos’ rather than the (Gk.) ‘rhema’.” [See The Logos and the Rhema]. The emphasis here is upon “labour” because this is no easy post of honour that is entrusted to these seeking revelation by the Spirit. “For the scripture says, You shall not muzzle the ox when it is threshing the grain. And, The labourer deserves his reward”.

Next Paul instructs Timothy “Under no circumstances are you to admit a charge against an elder [in the faith] except on the evidence of two or three witnesses. Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear”.

By way of illustration Brother Branham said, “If there’s any complaint against any member, if a member has a complaint against one another, or something wrong, you’re supposed to go to that brother yourself and talk to him, you and him alone. Then if they won’t receive it, then the next thing takes place; you take one of the deacons or somebody, and go with you to that brother. Then if he won’t receive you, then you come, tell it to the church. Then if the church . . . Then if he won’t receive the church, then the Bible said, “Let them be as a heathen and a Publican.” That’s right.

And any persons that knows a guilty person, and you don’t go to them and talk, then you’re the part of the Church of God that’s going to answer for that sin. That’s right (Matthew 18:15-22).

And if any persons then has a complaint against a deacon, or against the deacon, or somebody in the church, it takes three people. Three people would come and say—witness at the mouth of two or three witnesses. Come tell the pastor that there’s a grievance against a deacon . . .

But the full and complete authority of the church is the pastor. Read that in the Bible; see if that’s not Bible order. That’s exactly right. There’s no one above the elder . . .

“If you want to move the pastor, tell me why. Has he done anything?”

“Yes, we caught him drunk, or we caught him doing this, or doing something that wasn’t right.”

“Have you got three witness of it?”

“Yes, we have”.

Them witness must first be tried, “Don’t receive an accusation against an elder ‘less it be by two or three witness, and let them first be proved: against an elder.” Then you have to swear to it, that you saw it, and prove it, that you saw it.

And then, if you did, then that sin’s rebuked openly, that it’s wrong. Then I’d say, “Congregation, do you want to change your pastor?”

And if the congregation votes, “Forgive him, and let him go on yet,” that’s the way it has to stand. See? Isn’t that fair? Ain’t that the way to run a church? That’s what the Bible said. We have no bishops and overseers, and boards and so forth, moves this one in and got a lot of authority. There’s nobody got authority here but the Holy Ghost. And that’s right. He does the moving. And we take Him as the majority of the people, the way the people go.

And then if one side wants to do this, and the other side wants to do that, and the side wins . . . The losing side, what do they do about it? Join right in with the rest of them, said, “We were wrong then. We’ll go right on, ’cause the Holy Ghost has made that choice.” See, that’s exactly right.

Just like Democrats and Republicans, as long as we stand as a democracy, as Americans: if the Democrats is in, the Republicans should push right on with them; Republicans in, the Democrat push on. See, that’s just exactly what makes us a nation. Whenever we break that, we break our democracy. That’s right. Democrats say, “I ain’t going to do nothing, the Republicans is in.” Then we fall. I’m a Kentuckian; together we stand, and divided we fall.

Now, if there’s anything wrong in the church that you ever know of, some individual or some person or anything, you are duty bound and will answer before God if you don’t clear that thing out, you, the church. Now, you remember, it’s not on my shoulders; it’s on yours. And anything wrong in the church, God will make you answer for it. That’s right. That’s the way He runs His church. That’s the way it is in the Bible. That’s the order of the Bible. That’s the sovereignty of the local church; the pastor is the head. That’s right. Amen” (Hebrews, p. 337:278-290).

“I solemnly adjure you in the Presence of God, and Christ Jesus and the elect angels [chosen ministers such as those worthy of double honour], that you observe these injunctions without favouritism, doing nothing by partiality”.

Let’s see what Brother Branham said on this subject of tithes:

Question: Can a Christian go to heaven if he or she does not pay tithe?

Answer: I could not say yes or no to that. But I do believe that every Christian is obligated to pay tithings because it is a commandment of the Lord. “And blessed are they that do all His commandments, that they might have a right to enter into the Life, the Tree of Life” (Revelation 22:14). Now, I do believe that tithe-paying is essential to a Christian experience. For I’ll get to that in another question in a few moments; I know there’s another one in here pertaining to that” (COD. p. 604:45; p. 617:Q146).

Question: Would it be wrong to use tithes on church building funds?

Answer: Well now, here’s a touchy little thing for the church now. No, correctly, tithes is to go to the minister. That’s right. In the Bible they had a box they’d set at the door in the Old Testament . . . This box was a fund where the people put in there for the repairing . . . You’ve read it many times in the Old Testament. They kept up the buildings and things like that . . . All the repairs on the buildings was taken care out of that fund (II Chronicles 24:8). But . . . all the tithings went to their priests, their pastors. Yes, tithings are to go for nothing else.”

“I know people take their tithes and give them to a widow woman. That’s wrong. If you’ve got anything to give the widow woman, give her, but don’t give her God’s money. That’s not yours in the first place. That’s God’s . . .” (COD, p. 680:161).

Question: Should a person pay tithes to an individual, or should a Christian work?

Answer: “Sure he should. He’s the one man that will work, is a Christian.

“Pay tithes to an individual?” It depends on who the individual is. See? That’s right . . .”

“In Hebrews the 7th chapter, when Abraham, returning from the slaughter of the kings met Melchisedec, he paid Him a tithe. That was Melchisedec, the King of Salem, which is King of Peace, and King of Righteousness, which was nobody but God Himself. See?”

“. . . Really, where you owe tithings is where you get your food. “Bring ye all your tithings into My storehouse, saith the Lord. (That right?) And prove Me wherein saith God, that if I’ll not open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing that you would not have room enough to receive it.” I challenge any man or woman that’s not a tithe payer to accept that.”

Rich young ruler & the widow with her mite tithing“I could stand here till in the morning, telling you just what happened when I seen that, and what condition I was in. But just as loyal as I ever could, I paid tithes. And when I took my own money from the church here or from my campaigns . . . I’d give a tenth. Then I’d give it out to the ministers, and give the rest of it to ministers. Then when I couldn’t do that, then the thing I did, I kept ten percent and give God ninety. And then, when the law told me I couldn’t do that . . . And if I did, it was going to be charged to it, then I had to take and bypass it into foreign missions and so forth, and then just take a wage out of that of a hundred dollars a week; and I pay my tithes from that.

Yes, sir. I believe in paying tithes. It’s one of God’s blessings that’s proven to be a blessing. You say, “That’s of the Old Testament.” It is of the New Testament too. Yes, sir” (COD, p. 1034:Q307).

“. . . a member of a church, their first obligation is with their tithe and offerings, is to support their church. If you’re members of these fine churches that’s represented here, you support your church. That’s your first duty to God. “Bring your tithe and offerings into the storehouse.” And the storehouse, you surely know what that is; it’s where you get your food. So there’s where you get your spiritual food, and your obligation is to your church and not to an evangelist like me” (Let us See God, p. 5:28).

Church expenses are met from the free-will offerings of the saints, not out of the Pastor’s pocket. It is your assembly and he is your servant, not your benefactor. He should be reimbursed by the church for his telephone, travelling, postage and other expenses incurred in the “business” of the assembly. Malachi 3:8-12 is not speaking of Old Testament times but of Daniel’s Seventieth Week which will commence after the close of the Gentile dispensation. If we fail to pay tithes and offerings we are robbing God, robbing ourselves of blessing, and are not in the rapture. nl948.htm

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 947

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

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it is a privilege to speak with you on the eve of polling in an election wherein the aristocrat-controlled media is almost as one against the candidate they do not control.

Donald Trump said, “If elected US president, we could find common ground with Russia in the fight against ISIS”.

“My Administration will aggressively pursue joint and coalition military operations to crush and destroy ISIS, international cooperation to cut off their funding, expanded intelligence sharing, and cyber warfare to disrupt and disable their recruiting and propaganda.” Much if this could be accomplished within the USA, stern talk with a certain mendicant state and fellow religionists.

Killary intends escalating the war in Syria, using ISIS and other mercenary terrorist groups recruited, armed, paid, fed and directed by Washington and its allies to oust President Assad and risk direct confrontation with Russia. Hallucinating and rubbing her hands together as if to wash the blood of murdered Colonel Muammar Gaddafi from her hands. “Out, damned spot! Out, I say! One, two!” She “advocates a no-fly zone and safe zones” in Syria where the word “Christian” originated. Implementing them “requires us to go to war with Syria and Russia,” US Joint Chiefs Chairman General Joseph Dunford told Senate Armed Services Committee members in September.

Our News items expose Killery as guilty of the defamation she and her team pinned on innocent Donald Trump. This will not be spelled out in the MSM fifth column employed by the aristocrats to manipulate the minds of people too lazy to think for themselves like millions of Christian impersonators who leave their kind old priest to “do their religion for them”.

As its title states, our main article speaks of the inevitable, soon-coming “Invasion of the Western (once) Christian World”; namely, the united States of America. It was delivered in 2003 so long-term subscribers and readers of our Newsletter will recognise how much clearer the picture has become over thirteen years as the visions have transformed, as it were from a film positive to historical substance. Five of the apocalypse of visions shown to God’s Prophet William Branham in 1933 have come to pass and the Seven Seals opened in 1963 bringing Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form “as a thief”  (Revelation 16:15) and began “the time of the end” (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:1-7).

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.

WikiLeaks: Hillary Clinton Campaign Chair’s Pizza Addiction?!

November 6, 2016 — Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman is a child abuser, based on new leaked WikiLeaks emails pieced together by researchers. He and those close to him, including the Clinton family, may have also engaged in ritualistic cannibalism/sacrifice of minors. I so wish this weren’t the truth. Hillary’s entire inner circle is implicated; NYPD chief is personally DISGUSTED! More information: Hillary Clinton is a very poor judge of character: according to new WikiLeaks, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta might be battling a pizza and hotdog addiction.

Comment: CIA MKUltra victim Cathy O’Brien claimed she was raped by Killary Clinton as a young girl. Google is loaded with Killary’s history. Her husband Bill Clinton is . . . among other things, a pederast.


Hillary Clinton and Julia Gillard have a Lot in Common

Israel over Australia

October 30, 2016 — The Australian taxpayer shovelled at least $88 million into the Clinton Foundation and associated entities from 2006 to 2014, reaching a peak of $10.3 million in 2012-13, Gillard’s last year in office. On the Clinton Foundation website, AusAID and the Commonwealth of Australia score separate entries in the $10 million-plus group of donors, one rung up from American teacher unions. In 2009-10 Kevin Rudd handed over another $10 million to the foundation for climate research, part of $300 million he squandered on a Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute.

Gillard also donated $300 million of our money to the Clinton-affiliated Global Partnership for Education. Lo and behold, she became chairman in 2014 and has been—actively promoting Clinton as president ever since—in a campaign video last December slamming Trump, in opeds trumpeting the next woman president and in appearances with Clinton spruiking girls’ education. The Abbott government topped up the left-wing organisation’s coffers with another $140 million in 2014, bringing total Australian largesse to $460 million, according to a press release from Foreign Minister Julie Bishop . . .

The Hillary Clinton Takeover of the United States

Baphomet

November, 2016 — America thanks the brave FBI Special agents who forced director Comey to reopen the HRC Corruption Case! By now, everyone is in a tizzy over James Comey re-opening the scandalous email case of the ignoble HRC. As usual, the media has inferred all types of reasons why Comey just found new evidence concerning HRC on (youtu.be) Huma Abedin’s personal computer. Yes, the same device which her husband, ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner, had been using to sex-text a fifteen year old girl in North Carolina. Yet, the press and HRC’s not-too-bright team missed the entire dynamic of this unusual situation.

Recently, I have pointed out that our brave men and women in the intelligence community [IC], especially at the FBI and certain highly skilled police departments have forced James Comey to re-open the HRC investigation. Full story: StevePieczenik.com  youtube.com.

On November 6, two days before polls close in the presidential race, the FBI said a review of new evidence gave it no reason to reverse its earlier recommendation that Hillary Clinton not face charges related to her email practices while secretary of state. There is no possibility the FBI could have read and assessed 650,000 emails in addition to the existing 35,000. The power above the FBI is the US Attorney General, and, above him, the US President whom they actually serve. Please see the following news item.

First, second or steerage class, Killery ain’t never been no “lady,” unless her template is Lady Macbeth imploring the spirits, “shall I take the world on road to the left, the road to the right, or the road to extinction?”


The FBI can’t actually investigate a Candidate such as Hillary Clinton

Zionist Capitol

November 4, 2016 — The US, at the federal level, is not a democracy but an oligarchy . . . billionaires and centi-millionaires who control America’s international corporations and the ‘charities’ (such as think tanks) that are dependent upon them . . . It’s not for legal reasons at all. It’s because of who she is. In fact, purely on the basis of US laws, she clearly ought to be in prison. Any honest lawyer, inside or outside the FBI, has long known this, because the actual case against her is ‘slam-dunk’, even though the FBI has refused to investigate it and has limited its ‘investigation’ only to peripheral ‘national security’ issues. Andrew McCabe, Deputy Director to Director James Comey, specified this limitation to his ‘investigators.’ They simply weren’t allowed to investigate her, except on the hardest-to-prove crimes that she probably but not definitely also did. The slam-dunks were just off-limits to them. McCabe’s wife’s political campaign had received $675,000 from the PAC of Terry McAuliffe, a close friend of Clintons, who chaired Hillary’s 2008 Presidential campaign. And, even on the harder-to-prove matters, which FBI Director Comey declined on July 5 to pursue, they stood a strong chance of winning, if only Comey hadn’t prevented their moving forward to try—but those issues are tangential to the basic case against her, anyway).

There are at least six federal criminal laws which accurately and unquestionably describe even what Ms. Clinton has now publicly admitted having done by her privatized email system, and intent isn’t even mentioned in most nor necessary in order for her to be convicted—the actions themselves convict her, and the only relevance that intent might have in any of these laws, would be in determining how long her prison sentence would be . . . maybe the only way that Clinton will be able to avoid going to prison is by her going to the White House. Either she gets a term in the White House, or else she gets a (much longer) term in prison—or else our government is so thoroughly corrupt that she remains free as a private citizen and still above the law, even though not serving as a federal official.

Even if she is convicted only on these six slam-dunk statutes (and on none other, including the ones that Comey was referring to when he said on July 5 that, “«Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case”), she could be sentenced to a maximum of 73 years in prison (73 = 5 + 5 + 20 + 20 + 3 + 10 + 10). Adding on others she might also have committed (such as the ones that Comey was referring to, all of which pertain only to the handling of classified information), would mean that her term in prison might be lengthier still, but what’s important in the email case isn’t that; it’s to convict her on, essentially, theft and/or destruction of US government documents by means of transferring them into her private email and/or smashing hard drives. No one, not even a US federal official, can legally do that, and those six laws are specifically against it.

Motive is important in Ms. Clinton’s email case, because motive tells us why she was trying to hide from historians and from the public her operations as the US Secretary of State: was it because she didn’t want them to know that she was selling to the Sauds and her other friends the US State Department’s policies in return for their million-dollar-plus donations to the Clinton Foundation, and maybe even selling to them (and/or their cronies) US government contracts, or why? However, those are questions regarding other crimes that she might have been perpetrating while in public office, not the crimes of her privatized email operation itself; and those other crimes (whatever they might have been) would have been explored only after an indictment on the slam-dunks, and for further possible prosecutions, if President Obama’s people were serious about investigating her. They weren’t. Clearly, this is selective ‘justice’. That’s the type of ‘justice’ an aristocracy imposes . . .

Joachim Hagopian at Global Research headlined on October 30, “The Real Reasons Why FBI Director James Comey Reopened the Hillary Email Investigation,” and reported . . . with an open revolt brewing inside the FBI, Comey was forced to go public on Friday with reopening the investigation . . . An inside source has revealed to him that the laptops belonging to key Clinton aides Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson, both wrongly granted immunity, were not destroyed after all as previously reported, but have been “secretly kept intact by investigating FBI agents refusing to destroy incriminating evidence as part of the in-house whitewash”.

In other words: Comey was between a rock (the resignation-letters piling up on his desk from subordinates who felt that no person should be above the law) and a hard place (his ability to stay on at the FBI and not have a scandal against himself bleed out to the public from down below). The US wasn’t yet that kind of dictatorship—one which could withstand such a public disclosure. In order for it to become one, the aristocracy’s control would have needed to be even stronger than it yet is.

Also on the 30th, Ed Klein in Britain’s Daily Mail bannered . . . There has never—at least since 1981—been so severe a test of the extent to which this nation is (as those researches found it to have unquestionably been between 1981 and 2002) an ‘oligarchy’ . . . a serious criminal prosecution of Ms. Clinton would potentially start an unwinding of this dictatorship . . . the election on November 8 will certainly have an enormous impact on the outcome . . .

The Failure of US Democracy: How the Oligarchs plan to steal the Election

Paul Craig Roberts

October 28, 2016 — Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury for Economic Policy in the Reagan Administration writes: I am now convinced that the Oligarchy that rules America intends to steal the presidential election. In the past, the oligarchs have not cared which candidate won as the oligarchs owned both. But they do not own Trump.

Most likely you are unaware of what Trump is telling people as the media does not report it. A person who speaks like this is not endeared to the oligarchs:

Wall Street and the mega-banks too big to fail and their agent the Federal Reserve, a federal agency that put five banks ahead of millions of troubled American homeowners . . . The military/security complex which has spent trillions of our taxpayer dollars on 15 years of gratuitous wars based entirely on lies in order to enrich themselves and their power.

The neoconservatives, whose crazed ideology of US world hegemony thrusts the American people into military conflict with Russia and China; the US global corporations that sent American jobs to China and India and elsewhere in order to enrich the One Percent . . . Agribusiness (Monsanto et al), corporations that poison the soil, the water, the oceans, and our food with their GMOs, herbicides, pesticides, and chemical fertilizers, while killing the bees that pollinate the crops. The extractive industries . . . The Israel Lobby that controls US Middle East policy and is committing genocide . . .

Killary vs TrumpWhat convinces me that the Oligarchy intends to steal the election is the vast difference between the presstitutes’ reporting and facts on the ground. According to the presstitutes, Hillary is so far ahead that there is no point in Trump supporters bothering to vote. Hillary has won the election before the vote. Hillary has been declared a 93% sure winner. I am yet to see one Hillary yard sign . . . Hillary’s public appearances are unattended . . . This is how the theft of the election is supposed to work . . . Full story: strategic-culture.org. What you’re not being told . . .

Comment: Eye openers everything with Hillary is rigged, staged and false. Indictments, trials and imprisonment lay ahead for all the major players in the Bush-Clinton-Obama regimes’ reign of terror. It’s time the American citizens take back their hijacked nation from those bent on destroying it.


This is no ‘New Cold War’: It’s far worse than That

November 11, 2016 — After 1991, when the Warsaw Pact no longer existed, the US military alliance NATO invited into its membership all of the former states of the USSR except Russia (thereby indicating NATO’s continuing hostility toward that particular nation and the fraudulence of NATO’s peace with it), and also invited in all of the USSR’s former Warsaw Pact allies, and so NATO (a now clearly anti-Russian, no longer at all anti-communist, alliance) has come to extend right up to Russia’s own borders—something that the US refused to allow the USSR to do to the US in 1962, when the Soviet dictator Khrushchev wanted to place nuclear missiles in Cuba just 90 miles from America’s border.

In the new era during which the US government and its allies believe that nuclear primacy is about to be achieved, the framework in which the use of ‘nuclear primacy’ would be ‘justified’ is that, as soon as such ‘primacy’ is believed to have been obtained (such as by means of anti-ballistic missiles having been installed that would supposedly annihilate Russia’s nuclear arsenal before their warheads could even be released to retaliate against the US-and-allied nuclear invasion), the US side’s ‘defensive’ traditional-weapons invasion of Russia is being defeated by the Russians, and so the only way available to prevent the defeat of the US-and-allied forces is by the use of nuclear weapons (the ‘taking-advantage’ of America’s ‘nuclear primacy’). That’s how the nuclear attack would be ‘justified’, as a ‘necessary defensive response’ against Russia.

Consequently, in the current US-NATO operation on and near Russia’s borders, the Alliance is starting the build-up of its traditional invasion forces. This includes some US allies that are not in NATO. The supposed ‘justification’ for this amassing of invasion-forces on Russia’s borders is to ‘defend’ against ‘Russia’s aggression’ when (in March 2014 just weeks after the bloody US coup in the Ukraine) Russia enabled the residents of Crimea to rejoin Crimea as part of Russia . . . That disagreement about Crimea is the supposed root-cause for NATO’s involvement, even though Ukraine still is not (and previously did not want to be) a member of the NATO alliance. Anyway: this is the rationalization for NATO’s build-up toward what could become WW III.

Ever since 19 February 2016, the US has been storing tanks and artillery, sufficient (to support 15,000 Marines), in undisclosed (confidential), Norwegian caves. Norway has a 200-mile border with Russia. CNN’s news-report on that was accompanied by a video headlined «Russia Reveals Aggressive Military Plans». It reported that Russia’s (democratically elected, though not mentioned as such) President Putin, was moving troops and weapons toward Norway’s border. (How would the US respond if Russia were to be storing invasion-equipment and troops in Mexico near the US border? . . .

US President Barack Obama means business: he’s getting things set up for Hillary Clinton to finish as his successor . . .

America, and its greatly expanded NATO, thus now surrounds Russia not just with its tanks etc., but with its missiles and bombers, on and near Russia’s borders, and so the flight-time from launch to the nuclear-bombing (if the ground-invasion of Russia encounters defeat) will be less than ten minutes, sometimes even less than the time for Russia to get its own missiles launched in retaliation against ours . . .

In 2006, the US aristocracy published in the journal Foreign Affairs, from their Council on Foreign Relations, the first article which said that the US goal should no longer be a continuation of MAD, but instead «The Rise of US Nuclear Primacy», by which the US aristocracy meant the rise of America’s ability to win a nuclear war against Russia. It established this stunning goal merely by saying that such an objective could be achieved and that it should be achieved, and by the article’s being published by the US aristocracy itself (the people who control this country), and by furthermore the US aristocracy not condemning and rejecting and repudiating it but simply letting that article stand with little to no public discussion (and no public debate) about it, much less with the chorus of public condemnations of it in the US press, such as would have happened if America were a democracy . . .

Two-faced ObamaObama came into office criticizing the ABM plan and pretending not to be hostile toward Russia. He deceived Vladimir Putin into thinking that Obama sincerely wanted to pursue peace and cooperation with Russia. As soon as Obama became re-elected, his verbal smiling teeth immediately became actual glaring fangs. Then . . . his regime overthrew in a bloody February 2014 coup the Moscow-friendly democratically elected President of Ukraine, bordering Russia . . . in his book, “The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geo-strategic Imperatives,” Zbigniew Brzezinski, a former US National Security Advisor, alluded to the modern Middle East as a control lever of an area he, Brzezinski, calls the Eurasian Balkans. The Eurasian Balkans consists of the Caucasus (Georgia, the Republic of Azerbaijan, and Armenia) and Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan) and to some extent both Iran and Turkey. Iran and Turkey both form the northernmost tiers of the Middle East (excluding the Caucasus) that edge into Europe and the former Soviet Union . . . Brzezinski’s plan was already being put into effect by the US government . . .

However, the person who actually made the seminal decision behind all of this, the decision to conquer Russia, was US President George Herbert Walker Bush, on the night of 24 February 1990 . . . NATO needs to end now, just as the Warsaw Pact did in 1991—when an indecent, oligarchic, ‘The West’ continued the Cold War despite the Warsaw Pact’s end, and now is making it hot.

Another Liar-for-the-Iraq-Invasion endorses Clinton

Occult Star of David (so-called)

October 28, 2016 — Colin Powell, who lied for invading Iraq in 2003 . . . announced on October 25 that he’ll vote for [Jewess] Hillary . . . another prominent liar . . . for invading countries that haven’t invaded, and that present no imminent threat to invade, the United States . . . [Jewess Victoria] Nuland was a protégé of Dick Cheney and Hillary Clinton and arranged the coup d’état that overthrew the Ukrainian government on 20 February 2014 . . . Nuland’s [Jewish] husband, Robert Kagan, was soon to come out publicly as a fundraiser for Hillary’s Presidential campaign.

When the Daily Beast during the primaries asked 121 Republican Party foreign-policy specialists who had signed a letter condemning Donald Trump, whether they would vote for the Republican nominee if it turned out to be Trump, only one said yes, and he refused to allow his identity to be made public, because he was the only one of them who opposed neoconservatism. (He noted that Hillary’s “record is filled with foreign policy disasters”—those being, of course, her neocon actions as US Secretary of State.)

Democratic Party ‘news’ media report this only rarely. But those are media that have already filtered out, never reported to their own readers and audiences, the basis for those disgusting endorsements from neocons. So, to many of these Democratic Party voters, the neocons’ endorsements seem to have been done for reasons that prove Hillary to be progressive (“It’s called reverse psychology folks and they are doing it to try and turn off the base. If you believe for a moment that they would actually support her, then you’re even dumber than they are.” But, in fact, the leading neocons are actually fundraising for her. Democrats cannot acknowledge the neocons amongst themselves, such as, for example, Obama’s own current ‘Defense’ Secretary, Ashton Carter, but that’s what they are: neocons).

The Obama coup in Ukraine was immediately recognized by the Russian people to be directed against them . . . so in the Pew International Polls, the approval-rating of the United Sates among Russians plunged from 51% in 2013 right before the US neocon coup in Ukraine, to 23% in 2014, right after their coup. Then, in 2015, it sank even lower, to 15%.

Republican Party ‘news’ media report Democrats’ neoconservatives just as rarely—because they’re just as committed to conquering Russia (and to overthrowing its allies such as Bashar al-Assad and installing a jihadist government there) as the Democratic Party’s billionaires are. (To be that evil is embarrassing . . . They don’t want the public to know about it).

The super-Republican [Jew] Paul Wolfowitz calls Trump «dangerous» and says «I might have to vote for Hillary Clinton . . . But the powerful ones right now are Hillary’s billionaire donors . . . Clinton is their choice. And there’s very good reason why (though it’s a very bad reason to vote for her). Neocons don’t care about the aftermath. That’s why they’re so dangerous. (“We came, we saw, he died. Ha hah!” And she’s going to have her finger on the nuclear button?)

Osama/KillarySaddam Hussein was friendly toward Russia. Muammar Gaddafi was friendly toward Russia. Viktor Yanukovych was friendly toward Russia. [Jewess] Hillary Clinton helped conquer all of them, and now she wants a «free-fire zone» in Syria to eliminate Bashar al-Assad there, who is outright allied with Russia. That would mean war against Russia. She wants war against both Russia and China. The build-up, if not the aftermath, to such war, will be great for the bomb-makers etc. (And that’s whom neocons authentically represent. War can be very profitable for the ‘right’ people—including Hillary Clinton’s mega-donors).

Regardless of what one thinks about the Presidential candidates’ domestic policies, those policies pale into insignificance as compared to the neocons’ craving to expand NATO not only up to Russia’s borders (as has frighteningly already happened), but beyond. Its world-conquest they crave, and that’s the only reason why we’re placing America’s missiles on and near Russia’s borders—an outrageous thing to do . . . to terminate Russia’s sovereign independence. Will the Russian public—who overwhelmingly (over 80%, even in US sponsored polls of Russians) support and approve of Putin’s leadership of their country, continue to support Putin if he does cave in? Nothing sparks a nation’s patriotism like being invaded . . . even in the Soviet Union . . . led by a real monster: the Georgian, [Khazar Jew] Josef Stalin . . . Russians . . . will never yield their sovereignty . . . no matter how horrific the US-NATO invasion might be.

When the crunch finally comes, these US billionaires and their guests will presumably be inside the luxurious nuclear bomb shelters . . . America’s super-rich believe in it, no matter what their duped public believes. That’s why they are donating heavily to Hillary Clinton . . . They’re instead ‘patriotic Americans’ . . . committed to America’s global conquest. They’re investing in it. They expect to profit from it, or else to be paid well by the people who are).

Here is their record of controlling the US government: its international criminality that is vastly rewarded. This is called American ‘democracy’ . . . Investing in conquest is so rewarding! Just ask people such as [Jew] George Soros . . . even the far-right Koch brothers are on her side.

Incidentally, a relevant web-search—”outcome of a nuclear war Russia United States”—produces nothing trustworthy, only speculation, nothing reliably conclusive, but unpublished studies are constantly being produced on the matter . . . Perhaps some of the billionaires who are buying those bunkers know more than is publicly available . . . the public do not. And the aristocracy read such things as this. But are they really fooled by their own propaganda? . . . none of those bunkers will ever do anyone any good. And those individuals are Hillary Clinton’s masters. Full story: strategic-culture.org

Comment: The trustworthy, conclusive and infallible answer to this question is found in the THUS SAITH THE LORD of your own Bible, unfolded by God’s prophet William Branham (Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:7). In his 1933 apocalypse the Lord revealed seven consecutive visions that would come to pass before His Coming would be completed. Five of those visions have been fulfiled, in the sixth he saw the union of Church and State in the United States due to a popular vote by women which would bring the world under the dominion to Judaeo-Roman Catholic church as prophesied by Daniel and Jesus. In the seventh he saw the nuclear annihilation of the United States. On May 9, 1954 he preached The Invasion of the United Statesthat will result from the ‘hot stage’ of the ongoing World War III the United States is forcing upon humanity to cover her moral, economic and fiscal bankruptcy, dearth of faith and misguided confidence in her nuclear primacy and “full spectrum dominance”.

Our main article, The Invasion of the Western (once) Christian World,” touches these matters.


Hillary approved sending Sarin Gas to Syrian Rebels

April 28, 2016 — A report from British intelligence said that the sarin that was used didn’t come from Assad’s stockpiles . . . a secret agreement in 2012 was reached between the Obama Administration and the [Dönmeh Jew] leaders of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, to set up a sarin gas attack and blame it on Assad so that the US could invade and overthrow Assad. [Jewess Killary was Secretary of State from 2009 – 2013].

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

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

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

Comment: Reporting by Christof Lehmann was better, and it appeared even earlier than Hersh’s; it named names, and explained motivations in an honest and forthright way which is why Lehmann’s piece was published only on a Montenegrin site, and only online, not in a Western print medium, such as the New Yorker. (Biblebelievers’ Newsletter 921).

Hersh went so far as to say, of Christopher Stephens, regarding Hillary Clinton, “there’s no way somebody in that sensitive of a position is not talking to the boss, by some channel.” The United States has not yet fulfilled their deal with Saudi Arabia and Qatar dating back to 1949. Is the US really a democracy or an aristocracy? For further details see: strategic-culture.org


The Invasion of the Western (once) Christian World

In our previous two Newsletters we demonstrated how the natural types the Spiritual. Hence natural Israel types Spiritual Israel, the Church. And as we Gentiles have seen Seven Church Ages whose spiritual characteristics were foreshadowed by the natural characteristics of seven cities in Asia Minor, there was also a prefigure in Israel which experienced a similar series of dispensations within their dispensation of the Law.

God called Israel out of Egypt, fed them naturally with bread from heaven called manna, and performed signs and wonders in their behalf on their journey through the wilderness. This typed the primitive Church God called out of Israel, feeding their souls with that true Bread from heaven, unleavened by creed and dogma, and vindicating the spoken Word of His saints with signs and wonders following.

Israel declined the Theocracy and demanded a king to rule over them. God gave them godly men like David and Solomon but finally the reprobate Ahab ascended the throne. He married the pagan princess Jezebel who despoiled Israel’s worship, sending the nation into apostasy. The Ephesian Church Age fell away from her first love, the Word, coming under the rule of men when “the deeds of the Nicolaitanes” (a clerical hierarchy that set itself between God and men) and organization usurped God’s sovereignty.

Papal KeysThe Roman Catholic church organized at the First Nicaea Council in the Pergamos Church Age and united with the Roman state. Pergamos means “thoroughly married.” The hybrid religion created through this union transformed Imperial Rome into Papal Rome—mystery Babylon that rules the world today. So cruel, absolute and vindictive was her power, she tortured and killed whoever withstood her edicts. Such stifling of intelligent thought and speech invoked the Dark Ages of Thyatira. And Jesus rebuked the Church of that Ahab Age.

Revelation 2:20-23, “I have a few things against you, because you permit that woman Jezebel (Rome), who claims she is inspired, to teach and to seduce My servants to commit spiritual fornication, and to eat things sacrificed to idols (or receive her pagan doctrine). And I gave her space (through almost a thousand years of the Dark Ages) to repent of her fornication (impure worship); and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a sick-bed of anguish, and all who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her (spiritual Serpent’s seed) children with the second death; and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the reins and hearts (Hebrews 4:12): and I will give to every one of you according to your works”.

God scattered Israel and sent Judah captive into Babylon. Here they adopted the Cabala and other pagan traditions that formed the basis for the Babylonian Talmud and a hybrid religion (or spiritual Serpent’s seed) that makes the Word of God of no effect. Following their release God sent reformers whose followers later denominated into sects like the Pharisees and Essenes. Likewise, God eventually broke the absolute power of mystery Babylon, the Roman church that held Christians captive. He raised mighty reformers like Luther, Wesley and Branham in the Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicean Church Ages, but succeeding generations of followers divided the church into denominational sects.

Under the Maccabees, Judah married into the physical Serpent’s seed, repeating the original sin and that for which God destroyed all life by the great Flood, for miscegenation meant the genocide of Adam’s race. Jesus would not live in Judea “for fear of the Jews” as God had set enmity between the seed of the Serpent and the seed of Adam. That enmity is still there (Genesis 3:15); this was a type for today.

Jesus said of the end of the Gentile dispensation, “As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in ‘parousia’ Coming of the Son of Man” (Matthew 24:37). For fear of the Jews’ United Nations Organization, and draconian thought control legislation bought politicians have imposed upon the world in their behalf, we are told we must not protest the sin of miscegenation and race mixing through immigration (Genesis 1:11; 10:32; Deuteronomy 32:8; Amos 3:3) but to be good Marxists or ‘politically correct,’ applauding this sin under the deceitful euphemism ‘multiculturalism’.

When Israel apostatised, God anointed John the Baptist, the Elijah of Malachi 3:1, to introduce Messiah’s first Coming. Israel was lukewarm to the Word and bound by theological traditions so they could not receive God’s prophet. When Messiah proclaimed “the acceptable day of the Lord,” Israel’s Jubilee (Isaiah 61:1-2), He was crucified, but the saints of the Old Testament were released from captivity to death and rose in glorified bodies after Jesus’ resurrection and cleansing of the heavenly tabernacle.

Likewise, when the Laodicean Church Age became apostate, God anointed the prophet William Branham, the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6, to restore the apostolic faith and introduce Messiah’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming. His rejected Message is Christ’s second Coming in WORD form “to proclaim the day of vengeance of our God,” and call His elect out from Rome and her once Protestant daughters into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God at the Pentecostal Jubilee during the resurrection of the New Testament saints. Our opportunity to choose Christ and eternal Life will cease with the Gentile dispensation as the end of man’s day begins the day of vengeance of our God.

Revelation 22:10-12, “The angel or prophet-messenger William Branham told John, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time (of the Wedding Supper of the Lamb and God’s vengeance) is at hand. He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he who is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me to give every man according as his work shall be”.

Once “the mystery of God was finished” in 1963 there remained no excuse for ignorance among God’s elect (Acts 3:21; Revelation 10:7). Now Christ’s mediatorial office is fulfilled, His Bride is commanded to feed her soul upon the unsealed Bible and become one with His revealed Word and eternal Life (Ephesians 4:13; Revelation 10:8-11; 19:7-9; 22:10-12) even as Rome’s children “eat” her false teachings, becoming one with her dogma and Death (Revelation 2:20-24; 18:3).

As Israel’s denominations united with the Roman state to crucify the Word so today the Gentile denominations are uniting with the Roman church to crucify unto themselves the son of God afresh. And as God gave up Israel to sin and married the Gentile Bride, He is now giving the Gentiles over to sin so He can reveal Himself to Israel (Romans 11:32).

As the Light of God’s Word travelled from the East to the West, sin barked at its heels. The invasion of the once Christian world through Judaeo-Romanism, their martyrdom of scores of millions of Christians, their Crusades to recapture Jerusalem (which means less than nothing to Christians), the English, American, Judaeo-Masonic French and Chinese, German and Russian Revolutions, the American Civil War and two World Wars represent a small sampling of the dogged Babylonian savagery against Christendom.

But before such natural attacks, Russia’s coming invasion of the United States, and the atomic destruction of the Vatican and North America from without, the moral fibre and spiritual strength of the people had first to be breached, and so-called Christians forsake the strong tower of faith so that sin could erode character and destroy their Spiritual defences from within.

After the Flood, Satan made his earthly headquarters in Babylon which means “confusion by mingling or mixing.” Babel was started by Nimrod, the grandson of Ham who mixed his seed with his father Noah’s Serpent’s seed wife to spawn the illegitimate Canaan. Ham transplanted idolatry from the antediluvian world which Nimrod mixed with God’s Word. His man-made Trinitarian religion became the basis of idolatry among every nation, tribe and tongue.

Trinitarianism is the mark of the beast. The mark in the forehead signifies receiving her doctrine while the mark in the hand signifies serving her interests. When Israel then Judah adopted Babylon’s Trinitarian religion, God dispersed Israel and exiled Judah. He could not completely destroy Jerusalem and scatter Judah because the Messianic prophecies had first to be fulfilled.

Babylon fell to the Medes and Persians and its priest-king, Attalus, fled to Pergamos with his priests and sacred mysteries where he set up his kingdom and thrived under the care of the Devil. Julius Caesar inherited the kingdom both physical and spiritual, becoming Pontiff Maximus of the Babylonish religion and therefore priest-king. This title passed to the pope and today God no longer refers to Pergamos as Satan’s seat nor does He say that is where Satan dwells. The throne room is in mystery Babylon, Rome, where the religion of Nimrod is intermingled with Christianity.

As Jesus foretold and Brother Branham expounded, today we have two Babylons. One is the false Christian Vatican City State while the other is Hollywood. Rome invaded the world with her system of false worship while Hollywood destroyed its social mores and ethics with Talmudic filth and hate. Both Babylons are controlled by the same spirit in the same people at the top. In classic Hegelian form they set one Babylon against the other to divide and further confuse people. Babylon means “confusion by mixing”.

As with Israel, so with the Church, for “judgment must begin at the house of God” (I Peter 4:17). As with Israel, the invasion of the once Christian West began when ministers compromised the absolute of God’s Word then organized and replaced Spirit-led preaching with liturgy so that faith (or understanding) began to be replaced by learning. A stipend from head office replaced tithes from the faithful and soon church became a religion divorced from the individual rather than an organism of the community of faith. Men were allowed to smoke and drink alcohol, and women to cut their hair, wear makeup and follow worldly, immodest fashions. They began to patronize Jewish vaudeville, then movies. Finally, inviting Satan into their homes, they spend mind-numbing hours before a radio or television absorbing filthy imaginings designed to sedate and manipulate their subconscious without intelligent research and reasoning. Television entertainment has replaced the reality of personal experience, the revelation of God’s Word, communication with friends and family, and Church attendance; to say nothing of good manners.

Fluttering music sheets disclose expressions taken directly from the cesspools of modern capitals, to be made the daily slang, the thoughtlessly hummed remarks of school boys and girls. And immodest fashions betray the unclean spirits now possessing our once Christian world as they overwhelmed and destroyed ancient Israel.

To gauge how low the West has sunk, we need look only at the spiritual, moral, social, educational and economic plight of the United States of America and the ungodly scum that has risen to the surface of her administrative cesspool. Their cowardly and criminal invasion of Iraq says it all. And knowing she will never be able to wash away that stain, America plans still more murders on a vastly greater scale. Without national revival and regeneration, America cannot escape her shadow and type, Imperial Rome.

The Angel of Death has been flying over the United States since she rejected her last opportunity for national repentance in 1956/7, and blind followers of the “letter” of God’s prophet without the Spirit shut their eyes to this present Truth, failing to acknowledge that the only way America and the once Christian West could be destroyed was from within. The nation had first to reject Christ before Satan could do his work. Satan sees this, that’s why he put Judas inside the Church, and why he’s placed men who are openly, unashamed Zionists in positions of power—in government, and within the circle of this Message today.

Since the Holy Spirit guides into all Truth and shows things that will come to pass in our day, what is it that causes folk to support the Judas spirit in the circle of this Message? As fathers and husbands must answer to God for ruling over their wife and children, you, Christian, will answer to God for tolerating the Judas in your midst. The primitive Church “tried them that say they are apostles and Jews and are not, but are liars” (Revelation 2:2, 9). Since the apostolic faith has been restored with Spiritual discernment, why do you tolerate ministers who promote Christ-denying non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled “Jews” Scripture declares the sworn enemy of Abraham’s blood descendants? They can’t meet the Word test, so why do you support them with God’s tithes?

When ministers backslid from the Word, and every one, allowing their congregations to live however they pleased, checks and balances on government were also relaxed. Now our constitutions are overridden because so-called Christians have not been diligent in whom they elect. Socialism and the welfare state have shifted authority from the father to the state which is now the provider. Prayer and faith in God have been replaced by trust in state providence. Patience is no longer required because one can get whatever it is now by calling a government agency, or contracting usury. Prostitution, abortion, prognostication, gambling, pornography and lewdness are now legal because there is a commercial market. A percentage of the population of our once Christian nations hunger and thirst for such things . . . all because we permitted corrupt reprobate pastors to let down the bars and invite Talmudists into their pulpits.

The Babylonian Talmud condones such filth, along with fornication, adultery, pederasty, buggery, lies and deception. In vain do you imagine you follow the revelation of the prophet’s Message, claiming you have placed it in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation if you tolerate such ungodliness behind the pulpit of a Message church (so-called).

Revelation 1:1-3, “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto Him, to show to His servants (the angels to the Seven Church Ages) things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel (William Branham) to His servant John: who bore record of the Word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Blessed is he that reads, and they that hear the Words of this prophecy revealed, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand”.

Jesus was saying that the time is at hand in the days of the Voice of the Seventh angel when the mystery of God is finished and the New Testament Church is in His image as signified in Revelation 1:12-20. At that time, he who reads with understanding and he who listens to the tapes, understanding what the prophet means, and who has the Token on display will be blessed. The blessing of recognizing your day and becoming a written epistle of its Message is the New Birth or “blessing of Abraham” and the fulfilment of your part of the Word (I John 1:7; Genesis 28:4; Galatians 3:14).

According to Albert Pike’s military blueprint, drawn up between 1859 and 1871, three World Wars and three major revolutions were required to place the high priests of the Luciferian Creed in a position to usurp world powers as prophesied in Isaiah 14, Matthew 4:8-9 and Revelation 13 and 17. Two of those World Wars have been fought according to schedule. The Russian and Chinese revolutions have achieved success. Communism has been built up in strength and Christendom weakened. Communism is the spirit that presently pervades the whole world. Jesus called it Laodicea.

World War III is now being fomented by agents of the Illuminati, like US President George Bush and his colleagues, between Political Zionists and the leaders of the Moslem world. This war is to be directed in such a manner that Islam and Political Zionism will destroy themselves, while at the same time the remaining nations, once more divided against each other on this issue, will be forced to fight themselves into a state of complete physical, mental, spiritual and economic exhaustion in a third major revolution that will become Armageddon, destroying all life on earth about seven years after World War III.

Because of the intervention of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church, the United States, although soon to be invaded by Russia, will be the only remaining world power after it is ended, because in demanding a world government the Luciferian conspiracy will achieve world hegemony through the auspices of the United Nations and the US military will serve as Judaeo-Rome’s enforcer (Revelation 13:15).

As foretold in Daniel 2; 9, II Thessalonians 2, II Timothy 3-4, Revelation 13, 17, and in The Protocols of Zion No. 17, par. 2, “Day by day the influence of the clergy on the peoples of the world is falling lower. Freedom of conscience has been declared everywhere, so that now only years divide us from the moment of the complete wrecking of that Christian religion: as to other religions we shall have still less difficulty in dealing with them, but it would be premature to speak of this now. We shall set clericalism and clericals into such narrow frames as to make their influence move in retrogressive proportion to its former progress”.

“When the time comes finally to destroy the papal court, the finger of an invisible hand will point the nations towards this court. When, however, the nations fling themselves upon it, we shall come forward in the guise of its defenders as if to save excessive bloodshed. By this diversion we shall penetrate to its very bowels and be sure we shall never come out again until we have gnawed through the entire strength of this place”.

“The king of the Jews will be the real pope of the universe, the patriarch of the international church”.

“But, in the meantime, while we are re-educating youth in new traditional religions (like Wicca, tribal religions, Gaia, New Age, Buddhism, etc.,) and afterwards in ours, we shall not overtly lay a finger on existing churches, but we shall fight against them by criticism calculated to produce schism . . .”

“Do not think for a minute that these statements are empty words: think carefully of the successes we arranged for Darwinism (evolution) Marxism (Communism), and Neitzscheism (Nazism). To us Jews at any rate it should be plain to see what a disintegrating importance these directives have had upon the minds of the Goyim” (Protocol of Zion, No. 2:3).

“The High Priests of the Luciferian Creed know they cannot usurp world power until after the United States is ruined as the last remaining world power, so those who direct the World Revolutionary Movement WRM (Masonry) at the very top are arranging matters so the United States will, as Lenin stated, “Fall into our hands like an overripe fruit.” This is how events taking place today indicate the subjugation of the USA is planned”.

“Pike’s plan requires that the final social cataclysm between the masses controlled by atheistic-communism and those who profess Christianity, be fought on a national as well as an international scale. That is the reason, and the only reason, that Communism is being tolerated, while being kept under restraint, in the remaining so-called Free Nations of the World. I have served in the higher levels of government, and in the naval forces, in positions that enabled me to realize that Communism in Canada and in the United States is tolerated, and is being controlled and contained, so its evil destructive force can be used on the national level, as well as the international level, when the final social cataclysm is provoked by those who direct the WRM at the top(William Guy Carr, Satan, Prince of this World p. 51).

As we have mentioned on previous occasions, this is the ‘Peace Offensive’ launched against the West by Soviet Premier Khrushchev in 1956. It is working according to plan, financed in large part and as Judaeo-Communist Russia has ever been, by the stupidity of US taxpayers.

In his book, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order, Samuel P. Huntington, wrote:

“Two pictures exist of the power of the West in relation to other civilizations. The first is of overwhelming, triumphant, almost total Western dominance. The disintegration of the Soviet Union removed the only serious challenger to the West and as a result the world is and will be shaped by the goals, priorities, and interests of the principal Western nations, with perhaps an occasional assist from Japan. As the one remaining superpower, the United States together with Britain and France make the crucial decisions on political and security issues; the United States together with Germany and Japan make the crucial decisions on economic issues. The West is the only civilization which has substantial interests in every other civilization or region and has the ability to affect the politics, economics, and security of every other civilization or region. Societies from other civilizations usually need Western help to achieve their goals and protect their interests. Western nations, as one author summarized it:”

Own and operate the international banking system
Control all hard currencies
Are the world’s principal customer
Provide the majority of the world’s finished goods
Dominate international capital markets
Exert considerable moral leadership within many societies
Are capable of massive military intervention
Control the sea lanes
Conduct most advanced technical research and development
Control leading edge technical education
Dominate access to space
Dominate the aerospace industry
Dominate international communications
Dominate the high-tech weapons industry.

“The second picture of the West is very different. It is of a civilization in decline, its share of world political, economic, and military power is going down relative to that of other civilizations. The West’s victory in the Cold War has produced not triumph but exhaustion. The West is increasingly concerned with its internal problems and needs, as it confronts slow economic growth, stagnating populations, unemployment, huge government deficits, a declining work ethic, low savings rates, and in many countries including the United States, social disintegration, drugs, and crime. Economic power is rapidly shifting to East Asia, and military power and political influence are starting to follow. India is on the verge of economic takeoff and the Islamic world is increasingly hostile toward the West. The willingness of other societies to accept the West’s dictates or abide its sermons is rapidly evaporating, and so is the West’s self-confidence and will to dominate. The late 1980s witnessed much debate about the declinist thesis concerning the United States. In the mid-1990s, a balanced analysis came to a somewhat similar conclusion:”

“In many important respects, its [the United States’] relative power will decline at an accelerating pace. In terms of its raw economic capabilities, the position of the United States in relation to Japan and eventually China is likely to erode still further. In the military realm, the balance of effective capabilities between the United States and a number of growing regional powers (including, perhaps, Iran, India, and China) will shift from the center toward the periphery. Some of America’s structural power will flow to other nations; some (and some of its soft power as well) will find its way into the hands of non-state actors like multinational corporations”.

“Which of these two contrasting pictures of the place of the West in the world describes reality? The answer, of course, is: they both do. The West is overwhelmingly dominant now and will remain number one in terms of power and influence well into the twenty-first century. Gradual, inexorable, and fundamental changes, however, are also occurring in the balances of power among civilizations, and the power of the West relative to that of other civilizations will continue to decline. As the West’s primacy erodes, much of its power will simply evaporate and the rest will be diffused on a regional basis among the several major civilizations and their core states. The most significant increases in power are accruing and will accrue to Asian civilizations . . .” (Samuel P. Huntington, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order, p.81-82).

Here is a little something that has been planned for the Western (once) Christian World after its utter defeat following World War III when the ‘hidden hand,’ working under a different name and in a different occupation rules the New World Order under the cover of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church:

According to the UN, the world stock of atomic and hydrogen bombs is to be placed in its safekeeping. To “satisfy Russian demands” a neutral location has been chosen for the United Nations’ permanent headquarters.

This is the big surprise the world’s statesmen are now preparing. But it will not be announced until international tension and the hydrogen bomb terror have reduced the nations (through propaganda) to a state of mind in which they will clutch at any straw (Luke 21:25-26).

Why the hesitancy? Because our leaders and those of America and Russia are shy of mentioning the name of the neutral country which will become possessed of all the terror weapons of the atomic age, and which will become at the same time the seat of the future World Government.

Only when we are brought to the brink of a Third World War, will it be timorously made known that the great powers are “thinking that perhaps” the most suitable location for the UN as the custodian of the hydrogen bomb, would be the neutral state of Israeli.

Such a staple and ingenious way of ending the universal terror is expected to bring tears of relief all around—and “Why didn’t someone think of it before?”

Below are the names of those who did think of it before—before the atom bomb was thought of, before the Zionists obtained Palestine—even before UN: Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel and Jesus Christ, to name a few.

Nahum Sokolov: At the Zionist Congress of Carlsbad in 1922, this Jewish leader said of UN’s predecessor: “The League of Nations is a Jewish idea. We created it after a fight of 25 years. Jerusalem will one day become the Capital of World Peace.”

Rabbi Julius T. Loeb: This Jewish (Zionist) leader in Washington was reported in “Who’s Who in the Nation’s Capital,” 1929-1930, as referring to Jerusalem as “The Head Capital of the United States of the World.”

Ascher Ginsberg (Ahad Ha’Am): The German Jewish paper Judisch Rundschu, No. 83, 1921, referred to him thus: “The right place for the League of Nations is not Geneva or The Hague—Ascher Ginsberg has dreamed of a Temple on Mount Zion where the representatives of all nations should dedicate a Temple of Eternal Peace. Only when all peoples of the earth shall go to this temple as pilgrims is eternal peace to become a fact.” (Asher Ginsberg is said to have written “The Protocols of Zion,” although there is supposedly evidence of its existence as far back as 1785. See L. Fry, Waters Flowing Eastward, p. 38).

Thus it is no new idea amongst the Zionists that Jerusalem should one day become the centre of world government. In fact the whole of their ambitions were summed up as a constant reminder for them by their poet, Israel Zangwill, in the words, “Until mankind heeds the message on the Hebrew trumpet blown, and the faith of the whole world’s people is the faith that is our own.”

The Gentile world has taken little notice of these sentiments, which might be found amongst the zealots of any religion. Thus a tolerant view was taken at the end of the last century when the Jewish world announced that “The Great ideal of Judaism is that the whole world should become imbued with Jewish teaching and, in a Universal Brotherhood of Nations, a Greater Judaism, in fact, all the separate races and religions should disappear.”

The question was—how?, and none have been more aware than the Zionists themselves that “The Great Ideal of Judaism” could only be brought about through the destruction of the existing order, through Red revolution, and some universal terror, which was accordingly outlined in a plan submitted at the secret sessions of the Zionist Congress at Basle in 1897. There it was stated that: “The Nations will exhort to tranquillity. They will be ready to sacrifice everything for peace, but we will not give them peace until they openly acknowledge our International Super-Government, and with submissiveness.”

The plan, the Jewish (Zionist) authorship of which has since been hotly denied, outlined the measures necessary for undermining the great nations by creating insupportable debt and Communist revolutions, and the part which both Capital and Labour would have to play in weakening Christendom—and which they demonstrably have played under Zionist direction (ibid. p. 74).

With this key to the situation, one can understand what was in the minds of the Jewish (Zionist) leaders of the Communist Revolution in Russia in 1917, no less than those of present day Russia, in fomenting world unrest. There can be no doubt, for example, that Palestine was in the mind of:

Leon Trotsky (Bronstein): In “Bolshevism and World Peace,” 1918, this Zionist revolutionary wrote: “The task of the proletariat is to create a still more powerful fatherland with a far greater power of resistance—the Republican United States of Europe, as the foundation of the United States of the World.”

Ben Gurion (Gruen): The Israeli Prime Minister, must have been thinking of Jerusalem’s future when in August, 1948, he formally declared the NEUTRALITY of Israel between East and West—a declaration reinforced by other official Zionist spokesmen on numerous occasions, and by its spokesmen on numerous occasions, and by the World Jewish Congress. It gives point to the description of Israel as “The Switzerland of the Middle East,” with the important difference that neutral Switzerland, like neutral Ireland, is NOT a member of UN.

Among the neutral states which are members of UN there are in Europe and the Middle East only Sweden and Israel, and since a neutral location is obvious for a body such as the UN, which aspires to represent both the America and Soviet blocs, every Zionist must be keenly aware of the opportunities thus afforded to Israel.

Lewis L. Strauss: the Zionist Chairman of the US Atomic Commission, must have had this in mind when, as reported in the London Jewish Chronicle of 11th December, 1953, he “assisted” President Eisenhower in writing the speech in which Eisenhower told the UN General Assembly that the USA would be prepared to ease international tension by handing over her Atom and Hydrogen weapons to the UN. Eisenhower does not hesitate to accept the advice of Strauss, although this Zionist financier is senior partner in the New York International Banking firm of Kuhn, Loeb and Co. which in 1917, under the direction of Jacob Schiff, then the acknowledged leader of world Jewry, financed the Bolshevist revolutionary Trotsky to the extent of 20 million dollars.

Albert Einstein: the Zionist scientist, (described by Pravda as one of the ten best friends of the Soviet Union in the USA) was also thinking along the same lines when he persuaded Roosevelt (Redfield) to authorize research into nuclear fission, and recommended the employment of other Zionist scientists, who were later to pass the result of the researches to the Soviet Union.

Oppenheimer: the chief Einstein appointee, now in disgrace for Communist sympathies, and holding up production of the hydrogen bombs until Russia came into possession of its secrets:

Pontecorvo: the entire host of Zionist scientists and agents working for Communism in the notorious spy rings of America, Canada, Australia and Great Britain: all have obviously been striving to bring about the present situation.

It is this overriding ambition which drives Zionists, even the most wealthy, to support Communism, either openly or secretly, only to bring the world to a point where it would seem it must accept their long envisaged “peace plan.” “One of the major reasons for my visit to the United States,” said the mayor of Jerusalem, according to The South African Jewish Times of 14th March, 1952, “is to interest Americans in the beautification of Jerusalem, the Capital of the World, no less than the Capital of Israel.”

It all has been decided as described above. Why has so little been heard about it? For the simple reason that it has been decided. The matter will not be thrown open for Gentile discussion in the popular (?) press until the Nations are browbeaten to the point where they are ready to acknowledge the Zionists’ “International Super-Government, and with submissiveness“.

(Note: It is an interesting point that on November 21, 1954, Czecho-Slovakia called upon the Western Powers to delay signing the Paris Agreement regarding the re-armament of West Germany, until they had discussed with the Russian bloc an agreement which might eventually result in a United States of Europe. A “United States of Europe” was the aim of Trotsky in “Bolshevism and World Peace,” published in 1918).

In a letter to Karl Marx, Baruch Levy said “The Jewish people as a whole will be its own Messiah. It (the Jews) will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy, and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship. In this new world order the (“Jews” misrepresented as the) Children of Israel will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The Governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property, and everywhere to make use of the resources of the State. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands” (La Revue de Paris, June 1, 1928, p. 574).

The king of the “Jews” will confide that it is God’s Chosen People, misrepresented as the “Jews,” who collectively are Messiah. According to the Kabala and the Zohar, the Jews created “God” in their image and, in turn, this “God” of the Jews is himself the reflected image of divine man (the “Jews”), for Jews are said to be “partakers of the Divine Nature.”

One of our subscribing Brethren writes: “Upon receiving the Revelation, the only real power to which I could point anyone is the Spoken Word. Once we realize who we are, where we came from, and where we are going, the powers of this world don’t seem so threatening”. nl947.htm
