New Creation in Christ Jesus

Bible Believers' Newsletter 992

"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 appreciate your emails and fellowship around God's unchanging Word.

Android PhoneLast Sunday I addressed a denominational Church of fine country people. I cannot recall when last I addressed or even entered a denominational service. The church building itself would be pleasing to God and its facilities were all one could want. Our main article today is a crystallization of some of the topics mentioned last Sunday with more detail and supporting scriptures. We contrasted the unregenerate false church of the first Adam with the elect Church of the last Adam; spiritual Serpent's seed with the Seed of Christ (Isaiah 53:10). We explained how Christ built His Body "line upon line, precept upon precept" with a different measure of Word and Spirit in each dispensation and shows how every division of the Body is measured from Christ, the Absolute and chief cornerstone.

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.

'Voices from Syria:' Syria's War for Humanity

September 20, 2017 — The Syrian Arab Republic is an ancient holy land surrounded by terrorist-supporting countries that want to destroy it. These countries, in turn, are supported by the US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

The secular government of Syria is led by Bashar al-Assad, its elected President. al-Assad is progressive and forward-looking. The terrorists invading and occupying parts of the country are neither progressive nor forward-looking, and most Syrians are happy to be rid of them. Many Syrians are critical of al-Assad for being too soft on the terrorists. They have dubbed him Mr. Soft Heart.

Al-Assad has earned the support of most Syrians by providing for them and by protecting them. Healthcare and education, including higher education, are free in Syria. Before the externally orchestrated and perpetrated war on Syria started, Syria was one of the safest countries in the world to visit. Now that the West has injected terrorists into the country and imposed illegal sanctions on Syrians, the war-torn country and its people are mostly defiant. The future of the country is theirs to decide, as per international law, and they will not be colonized. Their defiance comes easily thanks to the Western-supported, illegal "opposition" that confronts them . . .

The predictable result of engineered deception is that domestic Western populations re-main deceived and politically passive. The truth is inverted and large swaths of our populations remain deluded. Whereas the West and its allies support all the terrorists invading Syria, our domestic populations think that we are fighting terrorism. This is the great fraud of the "Global War on Terrorism" . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

Fact Checking Benjamin Netanyahu's General Assembly Speech

September 20, 2017 — The speech was full of downright lies and "alternative facts." Here is the reality:

Yesterday, Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu spoke before the United Nations in a speech that served as a kind of appendix to Donald Trump's controversial, bellicose declaration that was delivered hours earlier. Both speeches predictably focused on Iran and both leaders told a great deal of untruths and half-truths about the situation. Here are some of the most glaring untruths, followed by a factual explanation of the situation.
Full story: theduran.com

Trump went on at great length about how America respects the sovereignty of every country and the people's will of every country, and how the US, despite its overwhelming military power, never tries to impose its will on any country. What was the administration thinking, or can it think? What about Yugoslavia/Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Egypt, Syria, Yemen, Pakistan, Crimea, Ukraine, Venezuela, Honduras, Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil, Argentina, just to mention countries in the 21st century that have been subjected to US military attacks, government overthrows, and removals of political leaders who did not conform to US interests?

Is it respect for the sovereignty of countries to force them to support US sanctions against Iran, Russia, China, North Korea, Venezuela? Is it respect for the sovereignty of countries to impose sanctions on them? If this is not imposing Washington's will on other countries, what is? Is it respect for other countries to inform them that unless they do as they are told, "we will bomb you into the stone age"? (paulcraigroberts.org)

The CIA and the military/security complex are in full control of the US government. Trump has accepted his captivity and his assigned role as the enforcer of Washington's hegemony over every other country. Washington uber alles is the only foreign policy that Washington pursues. At the UN Trump actually threatened to wipe North Korea off of the face of the earth. He added to this threat threats against Venezuela and Iran. He demonized these countries as "rogue states," but it is Washington that is playing that role. Washington has destroyed in whole or part eight countries in the young 21st century and has 3 to 5 more in its crosshairs.

One question is: why did not the UN audience shout Trump down, a man standing before them telling obvious lies? The answer, of course, is money. The US taxpayers pay roughly one-quarter of the UN's annual budget, leaving the other 130+ countries a light load. Washington is succeeding in driving the world to Armageddon, because the world's leaders prefer money to truth, to justice, to survival. The UN diplomats see in their cooperation with Washington the opportunity to make money by sharing in the West's exploitation of their own countries . . . (paulcraigroberts.org).

Pentagon falsifying Paperwork to send Arms worth $2bn to Syria

September 15, 2017 — The Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) uncovered evidence revealing the Pentagon is not only shipping as much as $2 billion in weapons to Syria through shady means, it is also purposely covering up the paper trail.

The secret program began after the Pentagon's $500 million plan to train Syrian rebels ended in failure in October 2015, with only a handful successfully trained. The Pentagon then started a new programme of arming the rebels, BIRN and OCCRP outlined in their investigation published on Balkan Insight on Tuesday . . . Reporters have identified over $700 million in weapons likely delivered to Syrian rebels between September 2015 to May 2017. The Department of Defense has budgeted $584 million for the Syrian arms operation for 2017 and 2018; a further $900 million will be spent on munitions between now and 2022. The investigators report the $2.2 billion figure is likely an understatement. Full story: rt.com

Iran's Revolutionary Guards infiltrated US military, obtained proof of ISIS Collusion

September 16, 2017 — Iranian Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) operatives managed to infiltrate US military command centers and obtain documents allegedly proving collusion between Washington and ISIS terrorists in the region . . . "We have documents showing the behaviour of the Americans in Iraq and Syria. We know what the Americans did there; what they neglected and how they supported Daesh [Islamic State – IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL]," Press TV cited the commander . . . Izadi's accusations were backed by Iranian Parliamentary Speaker Ali Larijani, who claimed that "the United States has aligned itself with the ISIL in the region." No evidence to support the accusations has been released so far. Full story: rt.com

The Politics of Military Ascendancy

September 16, 2017 — Clearly the US has escalated the pivotal role of the military in the making of foreign and, by extension, domestic policy. The rise of 'the Generals' to strategic positions in the Trump regime is evident, deepening its role as a highly autonomous force determining US strategic policy agendas . . . Threats and intimidation succeed only against conciliatory adversaries. Undiplomatic verbal thuggery can arouse the spirit of the bully and some of its allies, but it has little chance of convincing its adversaries to capitulate. The US policy of worldwide militarization over-extends the US armed forces and has not led to any permanent military gains.

Are there any voices among clear-thinking US military leaders, those not bedazzled by their stars and idiotic admirers in the US media, who could push for more global accommodation and mutual respect among nations? The US Congress and the corrupt media are demonstrably incapable of evaluating past disasters, let alone forging an effective response to new global realities. Full story: globalresearch.ca

Israel & US open First American Military Base in Israel

September 18, 2017 — Israel and the US inaugurated the first American military base on Israeli soil on Monday, which will serve dozens of soldiers operating a missile defense system . . . The base is located within an existing Israeli air force base and will operate under Israeli military directives . . . Israel considers Iran to be its greatest threat, citing the country's nuclear ambitions, its development of long-term missiles, hostile anti-Israel rhetoric and support for anti-Israel militant groups. Israel has grown increasingly concerned about Iran's involvement in the civil war in neighbouring Syria, where its troops are supporting President Bashar Assad . . . Full story: miamiherald.com

Comment: This is an interesting portent. Having read the Bible Israeli self-styled Jews know the modern Israel state will soon be invaded and utterly defeated they have inveigled their unwitting US puppet to fight against prophecy. Had the Generals read their Bibles they would know that the united States mainland will soon be invaded.

UN Security Council Resolution 2375 on North Korea: Preparation for War?

September 16, 2017 — There is now a discernible pattern to US manipulation of the UN Security Council when it wants UN endorsement for US-NATO acts of aggression. It is a formula which led to the destruction of Iraq and Libya, and in 1950-1953 led to the destruction of North Korea and most of South Korea. This deadly trajectory is once again becoming visible, and the code is revealed in the three words: "all necessary measures," which are deciphered to mean US-NATO aggressive war . . .

The goal of these resolutions is the total destruction of the targeted victim-nation, in the present case, the independent socialist government of North Korea. Because the bar is continually raised, and it is impossible to comply with these imperialistic sanctions without betraying and destroying the core values of the nation being targeted, eventually the US compels the Security Council to announce that more "robust" (violent) measures are required, the end resulting in military attack upon the targeted nation.

Each sanction is a humiliation, an act of psychological violence and an assault on the dignity of the people of the targeted country. The sanctions are intended to cause such misery among the people of the nation targeted that havoc will result, culminating in regime change. If the victim has the strength to resist, more overt aggression will be used.

On September 8, 2017 the U.S. draft resolution revealed their ultimate intent: demanding the power to board North Korean ships, and use "all necessary measures" (military force) to coerce compliance to inspect their cargo. Although this demand was deleted from the sanctions resolution 2375 adopted on September 11, such coercion, if it had remained in the resolution finally agreed upon, would have the violation of the sovereignty of the DPRK, and would have constituted a form of rape of North Korea. Resistance by Russia and China resulted in the abandonment of that particular form of violation of the DPRK, but the cumulative force of the resolutions, now numbering 12, are strangling the economy and people of North Korea, and the US-NATO trajectory seems intent upon some form of military aggression, with or without UN Security Council approval . . .

Article 2 of the China/DPRK Mutual Assistance Treaty obligates China to defend North Korea if the US attacks. If the DPRK attacks first, China will not assist. While the DPRK will not initiate attack, ever, it is being subjected to intolerable provocations, set-ups and false-flag operations which may make it impossible to avoid counter-actions in defense.

The US Ambassador, many of the Security Council members, willingly or unwillingly and many others elsewhere are, it seems, deliberately refusing to respect, nor take responsibility for the horrifying massacre of 3-4 million North Koreans between 1950-1953, and ignore fact that the ongoing menace of South Korean and US military threats are inflicting an unendurable state of terror upon North Koreans, to which they must respond in the only way that will either ensure their survival or raise the cost of an attack against them to a point that the US-NATO-Japan-ROK axis are reluctant or unwilling to pay.

It is therefore alarming evidence of a stealthy plan to attack and overwhelm the DPRK in every conceivable way, that yesterday's New York Times announced South Korea's plan to "Decapitate" the North Korean leadership . . ."

The leadership of the DPRK has sought meetings with the US leadership for decades. The North Koreans never refused negotiations. The US refused all such meetings, perhaps assuming they could impose US will by force, in any case. South Korean "Decapitation Units" directly contradict US Secretary of State Tillerson's assurance that the US "does not seek regime change, nor regime collapse." The new South Korean "Decapitation Unit," the "Spartan 3000, will be mandated to conduct 'cross-border raids with retooled helicopters and transport planes that penetrate North Korea at night." This is a situation absolutely identical to the South Korean provocations that led to the 1950-1953 Korean war . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

New US Law blurs the Line between Hate Speech and Hate Crime

September 16, 2017 — Eleven years ago, this essay argued against hate-crime laws. One argument read "People can eventually be accused of hate crimes when they use hateful speech. Hate crimes laws are a seed that can sprout in new directions." This has now come to pass, I am sorry to say. This week, the Congress passed S. J. Res. 49, and President Trump signed it, making it part of the US legal code.

The law rejects "White nationalists, White supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups…" But why? Because of their ideas? Because of their expression of these ideas? No government that stands for freedom and free speech, whose charge is to protect rights, should be singling out specific groups by name and by law declaring them as outlaws or threats because of their philosophies. If they have committed a crime, such as defamation of character or incitement to riot or riot itself, then charge them and try them. But American government has no legitimate authority to single out some of its citizens in this way. This, furthermore, is an exceedingly bad precedent. Who's next?

This Congressional resolution is a declaration that certain kinds of groups, some named but many, many others open to inclusion, are to be attacked by the US government. The law urges "the President and the President's Cabinet to use all available resources to address the threats posed by those groups" . . . This law regards free speech as a threat, linking it to violence, painting them with one brush. There can be no justice that can stem from such a completely sloppy and inexcusably amateurish legal treatment. This linkage is made clear in paragraph seven with this language: ". . . communities everywhere are concerned about the growing and open display of hate and violence being perpetrated by those groups…" There is no distinction made here between the "open display of hate" and "violence being perpetrated".

I am just as uncomfortable with the notion of defining and singling out "hate speech" as some sort of new danger or threat or harmful activity or crime, to be dealt with by government or courts of law as I was 11 years ago with the idea of "hate crime". The standard categories of crime are quite enough without adding to them a government laundry list of prejudices and aversions that everyone is not supposed to express or feel, under penalty of government law.

Comment: It is the "squeeze".


New Creation in Christ Jesus

Ephesians 2:20, "Christ's Church is built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone".

This is confirmed by the vision of Revelation 12:1 that showed the Church cross from "the Law of Sin and death" represented by the moon under her feet to grace in the Light of the S_O_N crowned by the faith of the apostles symbolized as stars reflecting His Light (I Corinthians 3:9-12). This revelation did not derive from "flesh and blood"—Peter, Paul, Martin Luther, William Branham, books and learning or seminaries, but from heaven "and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" (Matthew 16:17-18). Revelation is faith or understanding of God's unchanging Word in continuity from Genesis to Revelation; it is "the mind of God in you" (I Corinthians 2:11-16).

The Body of Christ is the true and elect Church, Word of His Word as Eve was the continuation of Adam's flesh and bone some hundred years after he was formed on the seventh day and after God formed the birds and animals and brought them to Adam to name. Prior to the virgin birth of Jesus Messiah, Adam was the only Son of God, created by the spoken Word (Luke 3:38). Woman is not original creation but a by-product taken from the side of man to help and serve him as Christ's Bride is made up of the Holy Spirit taken from the side of her Husband when God put Him to sleep on Calvary. And on the Day of Pentecost three thousand one hundred and twenty souls were born-again, or baptized into the Family of God, by the spoken Word of the hour.

Adam could neither sin, disbelieve or be deceived on God's Word for he was His spoken Word. Romans 5:12 and 19 inform us "By one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned." It was not Adam's sin, but the woman's sin. She should have been burnt with fire as the Bible says (Leviticus 21:9). Adam's disobedience was by faith not sin (unbelief), it enabled sin to enter and cause the forfeiture of our dominion which the Last Adam will restore in the renewed heavens and renewed earth. God's unchanging Word is forever "settled in heaven" (Psalm 119:89). "That Word teaches us that if a woman leaves her husband and goes with another man she is an adulteress and is no longer married and the husband is not to take her back. That Word was true in Eden as it was true when Moses wrote it in the Law. The Word can't change. Adam took her back. He knew exactly what he was doing, but he did it anyway. She was a part of him, and he was willing to take her responsibility upon himself. He would not let her go. So Eve conceived by him. He knew she would. He knew exactly what would happen to the human race, and he sold the human race into sin that he might have Eve, for he loved her" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 104:1). The first Adam was a type of the last Adam: by faith he knew he was the son of God and could no more be lost than God can be lost. Somehow sometime God must redeem Him, and when he did so Eve would also be redeemed for they were one flesh through the marriage union (Genesis 2:24; John 2:19).

Male birds and animals are generally beautiful while females are plain and save sexual relations for breeding. Human males are plain while females are beautiful and may have relations almost any time and for pleasure rather than procreation. Woman is designed so that she can deceive and be deceived (Genesis 3:22; I Timothy 2:14-15), for Satan tempts by the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life—women, money and popularity. You will have noticed that the first couple did not cover their mouths with fig leaves but their genitals (Genesis 3:6-7; Proverbs 30:18-20). Man and woman have not been co-equal in nature since Eve committed bestiality. Now she must be under submission to her father prior to marriage and obey her own husband in everything; so the woman, the Church, is under pre-eminence to her Husband Christ (Genesis 3:16; Ephesians 5:24; I Timothy 2:8-15).

In scripture "trees" often represent nations or people (Numbers 24:6; Psalm 1:3; Hosea 9:10): the two trees in the midst of the Garden of Eden were the theophany of Jesus Christ, who is the Tree of Life (Genesis 2:9; 3:22, 24; Revelation 2:7; 22:2, 14), and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, who is Lucifer.

Genesis 2:16-17, "And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the Garden you may freely eat: but of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day you eat [partake, or have knowledge] thereof you will surely die."

After the fall "the Lord God said, Behold, the man [not the woman] is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the Tree of Life, and eat, and live forever [an eternal sinner]: the Lord God sent him forth from the Garden of Eden, to till the ground whence he was taken" (Genesis 3:21-22).

If eating an apple or any other fruit roused the couple to self-consciousness of their personal contrasts it is time to pass the apples to modern women who display their form in immodest apparel. According to Luther's translation, "and when the woman saw," refers to the lustful looking of the woman enchanted by the glance germinating unbelief. "It was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to make one wise" or knowledgeable in the secret mystery how to "Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth" (Genesis 1:28). It was not an apple Eve ate, but knowledge "which she gave to her husband with her; and he partook." Eve became doubly pregnant, a case of superfetation, bearing superfecundation twins from intercourse with the Devil-incarnate Serpent, a handsome giant man-like creature without a soul, and her husband Adam in a short period of time while ovulating. In this case, two different sperm impregnated two different eggs. So "Adam knew Eve his wife [who was already pregnant by the Serpent (Genesis 3:1-6)]; and she conceived, and bare Cain [meaning acquired one, or possession], and said, I have begotten a man from the Lord. [Nine months later Eve was still deceived, believing Cain was the Son of God, the Deliverer. Had she waited for her prophet husband to receive the revelation from God she would have given birth to Jesus Christ (Revelation 3:14)]. And she continued in birth and bore his half-brother Abel [meaning vanity or transitory, for she knew he was not from the Lord but by her husband]" (Genesis 4:1-2).

Genesis 3:20, "And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living." But Adam was not the father of all living.

Elizabeth and Mary also understood that the "fruit" of which the Serpent and Eve and Adam "ate" was not an apple. Luke 1:41-43, "It came to pass that when Elisabeth heard Mary's greeting, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. And she cried out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. How is it that the mother of my Lord should come to Me?"

Furthermore I would draw your attention to the fact that throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ end-time Bride (as in Ezekiel 4 that prophet in turn represents the House of Israel and the House of Judah). In Revelation 10:8-11, "The voice which we heard from heaven spake unto us again, and said, Go and take the little Book which is open in the hand of Christ, the Angel which stands upon the sea and upon the earth. And I went to the Angel, and said, Give me the little Book. And He told me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make your belly bitter, but it shall be in your mouth sweet as honey. And I took the little Book out of the Angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. And He told me, You must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings".

A human beingThis is precisely what I and other members of Christ's end-time Bride from the different Churches throughout the world have been doing since Christ opened and revealed the mystery the Book of Redemption. No one literally "ate" the Bible we have feasted spiritually on its contents, devoured and digested the revelation which in our mouth is sweet as honey. "For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart" (Hebrews 4:12). No denominational guesswork can stand against THUS SAITH THE LORD of the end-time Message. It is sweet and powerful in the mouth, but as soon as you become one with the unsealed and open little Book its revelation becomes bitter in your belly as you digest and come in the unity of faith "sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart" bringing the ten senses of your body and mortal spirit subject to the Voice of the Archangel, Christ, within your heart, placing the Message from Genesis to Revelation, separating you from the world and the things of the World that the Token of the Life of Christ will be displayed in your life (Acts 4:13).

Seven Church AgesI Corinthians 12:12-14, 19-22, "For as the body is one, and has many members, and all the members of that one Body, though they are many, are one Body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit [not "one water"] we were all baptized into one Body, whether Judeans or Gentiles, whether slaves or free; and have been all made to drink of one Spirit [not "one water"]. For the body is not one member, but many . . . And if they were all one member, where would the Body be? [All Lutheran]? . . . were the Body all Lutheran where would the saints of Pentecost and the Ephesian, Smyrnean, Pergamean and Thyatirean Church Ages be? And if it were all Moravian, Baptist, Methodist, Nazarene, Pilgrim Holiness, etc., sects of the Philadelphian Church Age, where would the Laodicean saints be: and the end-time Bride to whom Christ sent and vindicated a covenant Prophet to restore the faith once delivered to the apostolic saints, FINISH the mystery of God, and call His elect OUT from the Judaeo-Roman whore and her apostate (once) Protestant harlot daughters into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation, where would we be (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7; 18:4; 17:5; Romans 8:19; Ephesians 4:13; I Corinthians 15:50-52)? But now are they many members, yet but one Body".

Church Age Body of ChristJesus Christ is the sole Person of God manifest in flesh (I Timothy 3:16); the Members of His Body are Attributes of the same God manifesting "the present Truth" in its designated and decreed season and time (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7). We must recognize our day and its Message and become written epistles of that part of the Body. Moses did not seek to deliver the children of Israel by impersonating Noah's Message; Luther did not impersonate St. Columba's Message, and Wesley did not impersonate Luther's Message. "The eye [or sleeping Pentecostal saints of the Laodicean Church Age (1909-1963] cannot say to the [Wesleyan] hand [or sleeping Philadelphian saints (1750-1909)], "I have no need of you:" nor can the head [where there is no blood, and no mediation for ignorance of the fullness of the Word (Revelation 4)—typing the Capstone Bride with the fullness of the Word which will change her in the atoms] say to the [Lutheran] feet [of the sleeping saints of the Sardis Church Age (1520-1750)], "I have no need of you" Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:"

The Church Age or PART-Word Members of the Body are made up. With the exception of some old Laodicean (Pentecostal) saints they have fallen asleep pending the first resurrection. These diagrams illustrate the Church Age members of the Body by Scripture, chronology and history. Brother Branham stood in the breach between the Church Ages and the Seals and delivered the end-time Message by which one may be baptized into the Capstone or Chief cornerstone of the Body.

God's Word is Spirit in a form we can receive by faith (John 6:63). There are nine dispensations in the Body of Christ formed by nine distinct baptisms of the Holy Ghost received by revelation of the Word delivered by the angel or Messenger to each Church Age. What baptized the saints of the Sardis Church Age into Christ was a life lived by a clear revelation of Brother Martin Luther's Message of justification by grace through faith. The last saint predestinated to that part of the Body was born-again in about 1750, completing the Sardis part of the Body. From that point Luther's Message of justification by grace through faith could not baptize any one into Christ because God added "another line, another precept, a further revelation of His unchanging Word" to Luther's Justification in John Wesley's Message of Sanctification, or Scriptural holiness (Hebrews 12:14; Isaiah 28:8-13), but like Israel the Lutherans, Congregationals, Presbyterians, Church of England, and other sects that organized around his Message shut their ears, built their denominational walled cities, and when the Gospel Trumpet sounded they could not come out into the liberty of Christ.

Organized religion is not of God. God cannot work in denominations which are whited sepulchres memorialising a genuine Move of the Spirit in a bygone day and their rejection of subsequent moves of the Spirit. From what we have said it should be clear that God's elect are baptized into the Body by the Word for the hour, not by water. Jesus said "Unless YOU are born-again you will never UNDERSTAND the Kingdom of God" (John 3:3), for the Kingdom of God is not over here or over there, it is within you by revelation of the Word for your day (Luke 17:21). New birth is by the baptism with the Holy Spirit. The new birth is a revelation just as the 'rapture' is a revelation.

Abel and Seth were members of Adam's family by birth. Their half-brother Cain, his offspring and those related by miscegenation are not in Adam's family and absent the Book of Life which is the genealogy of the first Adam. They are born LOST. "Cain was begotten of that wicked one [who incarnate the Serpent and seduced Eve as he will shortly incarnate the Pope to rule the world government Jesus declined] (I John 2:13-14; 3:12; II Corinthians 11:3; Genesis 4:5-16; John 8:44; Hebrews 12:8; Matthew 4:8-9). Jesus Christ is the last Adam, the KINSMAN Redeemer for the first Adam and his seed; He was not the last Cain whose descendents are irredeemable.

The family of the first Adam born through sexual union of a father and mother, "is of few days, and full of trouble" (Job 14:1; 15:14) whereas the Family of God is born of the Man whose Spirit quickens your soul which was born dead in sin and trespasses to new Life by revelation of the Word for your hour (John 3:6-7). Not the Word for Luther's hour, Wesley's hour or William Branham's hour, but "the present Truth." This is the invisible Spiritual marriage union of the Bride and Christ and what God has joined together man cannot put asunder. Unless or until one is born into the Family of God they are not a son or daughter of God.

The Blood has been off the Mercy Seat since the Laodicean Church Age ended in 1963, however the presence of Christ's end-time Bride makes this earth a Mercy Seat as we are the Blood of Christ by the baptism with the Holy Ghost because the Life is in the Blood. When we are translated this earth will become a Judgment Seat and Satan will be cast down.

"Now you know what withholds that man of sin, the son of perdition that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity was already at work [in Paul's day]: only the Holy Spirit who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way in the translation of Christ's end-time Bride. Then that wicked one will be revealed [incarnate in Rome's pope] . . . whose coming is in accord with the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders [uniting church and state and heading a federation of all religious as negotiated at Vatican II], and with all the deception of unrighteousness for those who perish because they received not the love of the Truth, that they might be saved. [Christ is the Truth, and Christ is the Word, but they prefer a creed]. Because of this God has sent them a strong delusion that they should believe the lie: [and two billion denominational so-called Christians believe the same lie Eve believed (II Timothy 3:13): God loves you so much, surely it doesn't matter how you dress or how you are baptized. "God loves all mankind; He loves the Baptists, Anglicans, Pentecostals and Presbyterians." But He does NOT. He loves His own. "Jesus died for everybody and told Christians to pray for everybody." He did NOT! Jesus died for His Wife as Adam died for his wife. Jesus said, "I pray not for the world, but for them which You have given Me; for they are Yours" (John 17:9)].

Jesus said, "My sheep receive My Word, a stranger they will not follow" (John 10:1-5). How can you be a sheep and a trinitarian? That's a Judas goat leading you to the tribulation! Since "the Holy Spirit guides into all truth and shows things that are to come" (John 16:13), and He has had two thousand years in which to do so it should be crystal clear to the dumbest boy in the class that the denominations are not "built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets." They each preach a different gospel, haven't the faintest notion what Jesus promised He would do in this our day and could care less. Obviously "they received not the love of the Truth," in other words Christ does not love them and has not chosen them for His Bride (John 15:16).

Titus 3:10-11 says, "Reject a fractious man after the first and second admonition, knowing that such is subverted and is sinning, being condemned of himself." If one cannot recognize the true oneness of the godhead, scriptural water baptism in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the revelation of the original sin, just walk away from them. You know the election is off. Jesus is not looking for bottoms on seats, but for hearts in the Gospel by a clear understanding of His revealed Word. The big cathedral is Satan's church, Jesus' Church is the "little flock" unrecognized by corporate Christianity.

John 3:5-6, "Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I tell you, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit." The natural types the spiritual, unless you are born-again you will never understand the revealed Word of God.

The word "baptize" means to fully immerse, not sprinkle or pour. I Peter 3:21, "As eight persons were delivered naturally through the water, the antitype in baptism is now saving us (not putting away the filth of the flesh [as in Jewish lustrations] but inward spiritual cleansing, the answer of our desire and longing for a good conscience toward God), for admittance to the state of reconciliation, a petition for the remission of past unbelief which is obtained by faith in the merits of Christ [and received at scriptural baptism] by the resurrection of Jesus Christ" (Acts 2:38-39).

Ham, his wife and Mrs. Noah were lost spiritually, and many seeking regenerational water baptism, an unscriptural hypothesis, simply change from a dry sinner to a wet sinner]. Any variation on Acts 2:38-39 is not "built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets" but sin which is unbelief in the revealed Word of God which was lost in the early reformation but restored "in days of the voice of the seventh angel" (Revelation 10:7).

The name of Martin Luther is perpetually linked to the doctrine of justification by faith alone. Indeed, the mere mention of this great Reformer's name conjures up thoughts of sola fide. For the leading service he bequeathed to the Church "was the entire destruction of the doctrine of human merit, and the thorough establishment of the great scriptural truth of a purely gratuitous justification, through faith alone." In addition to uncovering this hidden gem, Luther exposed its value in teaching that it is the article upon which the Church stands or falls and the first step in faith.

These great contributions notwithstanding, Luther's own doctrine of justification by faith alone is compromised by or at least in tension with his doctrine of baptism, particularly his understanding of baptismal regeneration. In addition to Luther's contemporary Anabaptist opponents, others like Karl Barth and James Atkinson have called attention to this problem. While not addressing Luther in particular, a number of Reformed theologians with a robust doctrine of the sacraments have viewed sola fide and baptismal regeneration as incompatible. For example, James Bannerman readily admits to his Baptist opponent that "if Sacraments are regarded as the causes or the means of justification, they are utterly inconsistent with the Protestant doctrine of justification by faith alone." Furthermore, he asserts that it is legalistic to make the sacraments "instruments of justification and the source of faith".

The natural marriage union types the spiritual. The invisible marriage union begins when we hear Christ's call to us personally; this is His proposal which we may accept or decline. Upon acceptance we confess and repent of our past sin or unbelief in the revealed Word of God. Smoking, drinking, adultery, murder and idolatry are the fruit of unbelief just as "love, joy, peace and longsuffering" are fruits of the Spirit (Galatians This requires us to have a clear understanding Who Jesus Christ is, not one of three, or six of one and half a dozen of the other but the Supreme Deity, the Almighty. And What He has accomplished as our KINSMAN Redeemer by paying sin's price in our stead.

A betrothal is a marriage so we take His compound redemptive Name LORD JESUS CHRIST in water baptism. If you are not baptised in that Name you are not baptised in the Name (singular) of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost which are three of His many Titles or dispensation claims.

The second step of faith is sanctification by the Blood: in the natural this is the only cleansing healing stream for our body. In the spiritual, sanctification cleanses our mind for as a man "thinks in his heart, so is he" (Proverbs 23:7). Our holy mind under pre-eminence to the Word brings our body subject. Sanctification is a lifelong process of separating from the world to the Word. As we mature in the faith of Jesus Christ we receive correction by the Word and apply that to hallow our life.

Israel's King and Queen: Christ & His BrideThe third step of faith is the baptism with the Holy Spirit or new birth whereby we become one with the Word for our day. One cannot be born-again outside a life lived by a clear understanding of "the present Truth." Christ is not building His Body with "gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay or stubble" but by revelation upon revelation "till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ: that henceforth we are no longer children, tossed to and fro, and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; but speaking the truth in love, may grow up into Him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: from whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplies, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, makes increase of the Body unto the edifying of itself in love".

In our opening text Paul identified "Jesus Christ Himself as the chief corner stone." The Body He is building is the Word of God manifest in the flesh of His glorified Family of God-men. He is the first of that creation. God the creator, creating Himself a part of His creation (Revelation 3:14). This is a special designation of Himself. He was God created in the form of man. Now by His Spirit He is creating many Sons unto Himself. He is the Creator of that Church. The heavenly Bridegroom created His own Bride. This is a NEW CREATION and it is almost finished.

Colossians 1:18, "And He is the head of the Body, the Church: Who is the beginning, the first-born from the dead; that in all things He might have the pre-eminence".

II Corinthians 5:17, "Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a NEW CREATION, old things have passed away, behold all things are become new." Although man was of the OLD ORDER or creation, now in UNION WITH CHRIST, he has become the NEW CREATION of God.

Ephesians 2:10, "For we are His workmanship CREATED IN UNION WITH CHRIST JESUS unto good works." The Body is made of the lively stones of the fleshly tables of the heart of His elect Church, the wise virgins. He, Himself is the five-sided Capstone of the building "From whom the whole building fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplies, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, makes increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love" (Ephesians 4:16). We now have the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication and with no need of mediation for ignorance Christ's end-time Bride is forming the Capstone for we are one with the Word.

In Matthew 21:42-44, "Jesus told the chief priests and Pharisees, "Did you never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders [Israel] rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? Therefore I assure you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder" (Daniel 2:43-44).

The Great Pyramid is the Bible in stone built by Enoch before the Great Flood. The capstone was never placed because it represents Jesus Messiah whom Israel rejected and crucified. The Capstone is down for those who are baptized into Christ by the end-time Message. The rest of the world is imprisoned in the breach and will enter the Great Tribulation where in order to retain their names in the Book of Life and salvation they will be martyred as will the 144,000 born-again Israelite saints.

As we have explained, God set "enmity" between the seed of the Serpent and the seed of the first and the last Adam; the seed of the Serpent was in Noah's Ark and that enmity is extant (Genesis 3:15). God separated them at the Tower of Babel, and "as it was in the days of Noah" He is separating us from the natural and spiritual Serpent's seed today (Genesis 6:1-13; Matthew 24:37). Denominationalism is spiritual Serpent's seed, and as it was in the Garden of Eden the mark of the beast is human wisdom hybridised with God's unchanging Word to produce creeds, traditions and "vain repetitions that make the Word of God of none effect." The trinity, the Apostle's Creed (so-called) and baptism in three Titles are prime examples carried over from the Judaeo-Roman Universal church. As Son of God Christ interceded for this ignorance and "winked at" this spiritual adultery so long as the Bible was sealed, but since the Seals have been revealed He is in the office of Son of man and Judge (Matthew 6:7; 15:1-9; John 5:27).

Christians do not 'say prayers,' we pray. The Lord's Prayer is not a prayer but an instruction requested by His disciples, "Lord, teach us [how] to pray." His instruction may be summarised in the acronym ACTS: Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication, not a form of words to recite. Jesus' first words are "When you pray do not use vain repetitions as the heathens do" (Matthew 6:7-15; Luke 11:2-4).

The anti-Scriptural Nicaean Creed was written two hundred years after the decease of the original apostles, is contrary to "the foundation of the apostles and prophets" and lays the dogmatic foundation of the Judaeo-Roman false church that organized at the First Nicaea Council. She styles herself the second Eve and mother of all spiritual living. Here she broke the First Commandment and committed adultery against her espoused Husband, the Word! This creed was 'approved' over a century later at the Council of Chalcedon in AD451. This is hardly THUS SAITH THE LORD revelation from Above. I have The Ante Nicene Fathers, The Nicene Fathers, and The Post Nicene Fathers, who were carnal and not saints, that is, they were not Christians. It might be observed that the Creator God is sovereign, not democratic whereby He can be defined by a show of human hands. How grossly carnal. Is it any wonder the Christian ministers and bishops did not attend the Council meetings.

The pagan Babylonian trinity of Gods is worshipped by Imperial Rome and every nation, tribe and tongue this side of the Flood, whether blanket natives or the Academe, was introduced into Christendom at Nicaea. When the Northern Kingdom of Israel adopted trinitarian worship God dissolved the nation and scattered the ten tribes throughout the Assyrian Empire whence they will return to the Land of their Covenant when the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews abandon the modern Israel State after its soon-coming defeat. When the southern kingdom, Judah, adopted trinitarian worship the Lord sent His servant Nebuchadnezzar to burn His Temple, sack Jerusalem, transport her subjects into lifetime Babylonian exile, and commence "the times of the Gentile" dominion over the nation unto the consummation (Daniel 9:27).

Every Church reciting a real Apostle's Creed would declare:

I believe God is One Spirit, not two spirits and one Man (Exodus 20:3; Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 45:21; John 4:24; Revelation 1:8).

I believe everyone must "repent, and be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call" (Acts 2:38-39; 4:12. There is no other 'prescription' in scripture whereby one may receive remission of sins.

I believe a women who cuts her hair signifies she has rejected the authority of God and men (Numbers 5:18; Isaiah 47:2; Jeremiah 7:29-30; I Corinthians 11:1-16).

I believe it is abomination for women to wear bifurcated clothing (Deuteronomy 22:5; Zephaniah 1:8; Matthew 5:28; I Timothy 2:9-10; I Peter 3:3-6).

I believe in observing the Lords Supper in the evening, not transforming it into His breakfast or lunch. I believe only those who are genuinely born-again by the Word of the hour are entitled to participate. I believe the unleavened wheaten bread should be prepared by holy hands, and the red wine made by holy hands or feet. I believe foot washing should follow the Lord's Supper as He commanded.

I believe the mark of the beast is human wisdom reasoning against the revealed Word of God. I believe that under the Judaeo-Roman Universal church the apostate (once) Protestant churches will martyr those who refuse to obey Rome or receive her trinity doctrine as she martyred scores of millions of Christians from the time of Augustine of Hippo to the nineteenth century. I believe that the murderous activities of the mercenary armies recruited, trained, funded, armed and paid by the United States and NATO crucifying, beheading and otherwise killing is a program designed to harden the hearts of apostate Christendom (so-called) for the bloodier persecution Jesus prophesied in Revelation 13.

I believe all of the churches outside the circle of this Message, and many within are materially "rich and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; but spiritually they are wretched and miserable and bankrupt of faith, blind to God's Word and naked of the Blood" (Revelation 3:17-20; 18:4; Romans 11:32; Galatians 3:22; II Timothy 3:1 – 4:4).

William BranhamI believe God can do nothing of great moment without first displaying a sign in the heavens and sending and vindicating a Prophet with warning and a way to escape the Judgment (Amos 3:7; Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 1:1; 3:14; 10:7; 22:6-11, etc.,). A prophet is a sign of JUDGMENT.

I believe Christ opened the Seven Seals on about March 8, 1963 (Revelation 5:5-8; 10:1-4) and revealed them to his Prophet William Branham after he returned to his Church. He delivered the revelation to the congregation from March 17 to 24, 1963.
I believe that "when Christ had opened the Seventh Seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour" (Revelation 8:1). That was fifty-four years ago. That silence in heaven will soon be broken by the sounding of Israel's Seventh Trumpet (Revelation 11:15), accompanied by the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and Seventh Vial marking the end of the Gentile dispensation and the start of the Day of the Lord.

I believe the end of the Christian dispensation will be marked by an earthquake that will sink Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300 – 400 mile segment of earth's crust beneath the Pacific, with tidal waves devastating the east coast of Australia, and much more as the Bible has promised. nl992.htm

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are encouraged to have your company around God's unchanging Word.

Android PhoneThis week saw the sixteenth anniversary of the false flag black flag event known as 9/11 but President Trump stands by the truth. The alien-dominated global media and colonial governments of the Empire of the City of London continue to spew lying propaganda as the world races to the 'hot stage' of World War III which will see Israel utterly defeated and the united States mainland invaded and briefly occupied. The papacy will restore peace and be acclaimed president of one world government, but all of these matters have been in your own Bible for 2,000 years and more . . . written between the lines for those with anointed eyes.

Commemoration of 9/11: President Trump prohibits any Reference to Bush's version of events

September 14, 2017 — On the evening of September 11, 2001, the real estate developer Donald Trump appeared on the TV channel New York 9, and revealed that the official narrative was physically untenable: it is materially impossible for two planes to manage to bring down the twin towers, much less a third tower. Over time, Trump's affirmation has been adopted by almost all physicists outside the United States . . . videos.

From the different speeches he has delivered over the past 16 years, we can conclude that Donald Trump considers that the 9/11 attacks are crimes that bear the signature of neither foreigners nor Islamists. Full story: voltairenet.org             Comment: Bravo!

The Disturbing Aftermath of 9/11

September 11, 2011 — The Big Lie persists . . . Bin Laden was an unwitting CIA asset transformed into "Enemy Number One." In December 2001, he died of natural causes in a Pakistani hospital, widely reported at the time—including by The NY Times (several months later), Fox News and the BBC.

Obama didn't kill Osama. In September 2001, CBS News anchor Dan Rather said he was admitted to a Rawalpindi, Pakistan hospital on September 10, 2001. France's Le Figaro reported . . . Pakistani intelligence confirmed his December 2001 death . . . The official 9/11 account was fabricated to conceal state-sponsored terrorism, dark forces in Washington responsible for what happened. It became a pretext for waging endless wars on humanity at home and abroad.

Everyone everywhere suffers from US imperial arrogance. Neocons in charge threaten world peace. Their rage for unchallenged global dominance risks potentially catastrophic nuclear war—sovereign independent Russia, China and Iran potential targets Full story: globalresearch.ca

The American Military uncontained: Out Everywhere & Winning Nowhere

September 12, 2017 — When it comes to the "world's greatest military," the news has been shocking. Two fast US Navy ships colliding with slow-moving commercial vessels with tragic loss of life. An Air Force that has been in the air continuously for years and yet doesn't have enough pilots to fly its combat jets. Ground troops who find themselves fighting "rebels" in Syria previously armed and trained by the CIA. Already overstretched Special Operations forces facing growing demands as their rates of mental distress and suicide rise. Proxy armies in Iraq and Afghanistan that are unreliable, often delivering American-provided weaponry to black markets and into the hands of various enemies. All of this and more coming at a time when defence spending is once again soaring and the national security state is awash in funds to the tune of nearly a trillion dollars a year.

What gives? Why are highly manoeuvrable and sophisticated naval ships colliding with lumbering cargo vessels? Why is an Air Force that exists to fly and fight short 1,200 pilots? Why are US Special Operations forces deployed everywhere and winning nowhere? Why, in short, is the US military fighting itself—and losing?

After 16 years of a never-ending, ever-spreading global war on terror . . . America's can-do military, committed piecemeal to a bewildering array of missions, has increasingly become a can't-do one . . . Full story: tomdispatch.com


Between the Lines

In Newsletter 990 we studied the parenthesis of Revelation 7:1-17 which revealed what the Lord is doing under the Fourth, Fifth and Seventh Seals in the Fifth and Sixth Trumpets, the First and Second Woes, and the Fifth and Sixth Vials before the Seventh Trumpet, Sixth Seal and Seventh Vial manifest at the close of the Christian dispensation, ending grace for non-elect Israelites and calling the first resurrection.

The first words of this parenthesis, "After this," refer to the opening or manifestation of the Sixth Seal when an earthquake of unprecedented magnitude since the formation of man sinks Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300 – 400 mile segment of earth's crust, ending the Gentile dispensation, the "silence in heaven about the space of half an hour," and beginning the Day of the Lord. The first two verses provide a retrospect of World Wars I and II, the rapture or Bride Age after the PART-Word or Church Age saints are sealed, redemption is over, and we await our last Brother or Sister to recognize their day and its Message. Revelation 7:3 takes us into the Day of the Lord for the first resurrection, manifestation and translation of the Sons of God, the 'hot stage' of World War III and God's dealings with Israel.

We discovered that Satan was the rider of all four horses of the Apocalypse, and that he must obey the command of the Holy Spirit or Sealing Angel who is Christ. As after the First Woe in World War I and after the Second Woe in World War II he is even now restraining the four (horse) powers from loosing war and strife for the consummation in Armageddon until the 144,000 elect Israelites are sealed (Revelation 7:3-8).

In Revelation 4 we found that the Blood was lifted from the Mercy Seat which is now a Judgment Seat whence come lightnings and thunderings and voices, and that the sevenfold Spirit which had anointed the Messengers to the Church Ages has reported back before the Throne: Christ's mediation for ignorance of the fullness of the Word was fulfilled, and redemption was over.

Well, what is restraining God's wrath in the absence of Blood? The answer, my friend, is YOU. The Bride is the Blood of Christ because the life is in the blood and we are the Blood of Christ by the baptism with the Holy Spirit. "He that is joined together with Christ is one Spirit" (I Corinthians 6:17). So while there is no longer a Mercy Seat in Heaven, this earth is a Mercy Seat so long as we are present; our presence is withholding God's wrath.

II Thessalonians 2:7 states that the mystery of iniquity has been at work since Calvary: "only He who now restrains will continue to withhold God's wrath until He, the Holy Spirit is taken out of the way, departing earth in the translation of Christ's end-time Bride".

Jews are no-SemiticCaught up in the Spirit into the Day of the Lord, John saw two visions in this parenthesis set in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week when the Israelites return to the land of their Covenant where the ministry of their 'Moses' and 'Elijah' calls and separates the 144,000 elect. Newsletter 990 explained how the Lord used World War I in which the Jews traded American lives and property to obtain the Balfour Declaration whereby beleaguered Britain's Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour, a Zionist Jew, agreed to "use their best endeavours to facilitate . . . the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people . . ." The declaration was made before the British had wrested control of Palestine from the Ottoman Empire, and it was not made public until several years after the World War I, in 1920. By that time, Britain had been formally granted a mandate over Palestine by the League of Nations, and was struggling with its contradictory obligations of 'rewarding' Arabs for their support during the war, while also fulfilling their pledge to create a Jewish state.

Between the wars Jewry set up the lewd Weimar Republic, stole German wealth via hyperinflation and turned Germany into a bordello of scurrility unmentionable before Hollywood, television, apostasy and the spirit of Laodicea legislated debauchery a 'human right.' Overstaying their welcome they were forced out of Europe in World War II but because of Gentile ignorance these self-styled Jews were conflated with the descendants of Jacob and assisted to settle Palestine rather than be repatriated to their homeland, Khazaria. Khazaria, the country Jews 'disappeared' from history and cartography"But we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose" (Romans 8:28). And after World War II the God of Israel has used these "strangers" to establish a new Israel state in the Land of the Covenant for the Israelites to occupy.

After World War II, British forces withdrew from Palestine, leaving it in the hands of the newly created United Nations which favoured partition, particularly as evidence slowly emerged of the vast scale of the Holocaust in Europe . . . . Yet there was no evidence, and no holocaust in either World War I or World War II as claimed by the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews who perpetrated the very real holocaust or extermination of over 60 million mainly nominal Christians in the Jewish-ruled Soviet Union between the wars. And like the League of Nations, the United Nations is a Jewish criminal organization.

Although there have been 248 armed conflicts since World War II, 201 launched by the US, God has ordered the four angels not to hurt the earth with the Third Woe until He has sealed 144,000 elect Israelites (Revelation 7:3) after they first return to the Homeland. The Israeli self-styled Jews have made themselves so unwelcome in the Middle East that when the earthquake demolishes es Sakhra, Muslims will invade, utterly defeat Israel, and a mass exodus of Israelis will enable Jacob to return (Isaiah 6:9-13; 13:6-16; Joel 2:1-11; Daniel 11:39; Zechariah 14:2; Revelation 11:2, 16:19).

In Revelation 7:5-8 Dan and Ephraim are missing from the twelve tribes that are sealed. Quoting Brother Branham: "their names and tribes are blotted out from them because they served idolatry that God cursed." [That idolatry was trinitarianism from Babylon and Egypt! Don't presume God will wink at your Babylonian trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost that blots out the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ fifty-four years after He delivered the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication through the revelation of the Seven Seals which restored the apostolic faith]. "Didn't He say He hated the Nicolaitanes and that Jezebel?"

[Trinitarianism is the mark of the beast (Daniel 6:24; Revelation 2:21-24; 14:9-13; 19:20)]. "Stay away from it. Didn't He say He'd kill Jezebel's daughters with the killing of death which is eternal separation from His Presence? Don't trust in it at all. Get away from it. So God remembers."

[Do you see the antitype in Revelation 17:5? Come OUT of Babylon and be filled with the Spirit (Revelation 18:4)].

"Notice. But did you notice there, it was to be blotted out? Why? [Because] under heaven there was no immediate sacrifice that could give him the Holy Spirit to let him see these things, but he did it anyhow in his own selfish mind. But Ezekiel, in his vision in the Millennium, he sees them again in perfect order: Ezekiel, if you want to read it. Just put it down and you can read it to save time: Ezekiel 48:1-7, also read 23 to 29. Ezekiel seen every tribe just exactly in order."

"All right. And also in Revelations 14, John seen them again in tribal order. That's right. Every tribe to his place. What happened? You remember, he said, "Under the heavens," that his name would be blotted out of the tribal affair. As long as he was under the heavens, there would be no more, and this hundred and forty-four thousand is down here in the tribal part yet. That's right. But you see, they'd been blinded; they had only the sacrifice of bulls and goats. See?"

"Now, notice, He blotted them out under the heavens. But the Gentile in the days of the Holy Spirit, against that your name was taken completely off the Book of Life, and can never have forgiveness in this world or the world to come. Is that right? Now, there's where we stand. Israel under goats, sheep, they did have a place, as long as they was on earth here, their tribes was missing. They could never be included" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 554:5 – 555:1).

You will recall that under the Mosaic Covenant the Levitical ministry and priesthood were not to be numbered with the other twelve tribes but separated for the ministry as a gift from God and Israel to Aaron (Numbers 1:47-54; 2:32-34, typing Ephesians 4:8-16). The fact that Levi is named and numbered with the other twelve tribes during the Gentile dispensation is a confirmation the Levitical priesthood is void.

Daniel 7:9-10 saw the scene of John's second vision before the Judgment: "After the sealing of the 144,000 but before their martyrdom I beheld till the thrones [oriental thrones were cushions which are laid down, or in case of haste] cast down; [in Daniel's vision the thrones were empty because the twenty-four elders were not yet redeemed] and the Ancient of days [the God of Israel who is revealed as our Lord Jesus Christ in Revelation 1:8-18] sat in judgment, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head like the pure wool: His throne was like the fiery flame, and His wheels as burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him: thousand thousands ministered to Him [the Bride of all Ages], and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him [non-elect who must be judged and granted into salvation]: the judgment was set, and the books were opened".

In Revelation 7:9-17 John saw the same vision as Daniel, set after the translation of the Church when the cushions are occupied by the redeemed elders and the Son of man has descended from heaven with His saints (Revelation 1:14). After the millennium, general resurrection and White Throne Judgment we see the foolish virgins purged and triumphant. Revelation 7:9-10, "After the former vision I looked and beheld a great multitude, which no one could number, out of all nations, and kindreds, and peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; and they cried with a great voice, saying, the Salvation is with our God who sits upon the throne, and is with the Lamb."

White robes are the attire of victory, emblems of innocence and righteousness; the palms are signs of peace and festivity in the eternal eighth day of the antitype of Israel's Feast of Tabernacles. Among Greek and Roman Gentiles, palms signified joyful triumph in victory. The mighty voice of thanksgiving is praise for their full redemption. These justified and sanctified foolish virgins from within the circle of this Message will be purged and martyred in the great tribulation then granted into eternal Life or "given white robes" at the Judgment. One cannot be born-again without a clear revelation of the "the present Truth." Those who hear and reject the Word for their day are blotted from the Book of Life, and lost (Matthew 12:32). Non-elect Israelites ignorant of Christianity and martyred under the Fifth Seal for observing the Old Covenant will be given "white robes" by grace after the close of the Gentile dispensation because God blinded their eyes (Revelation 6:9-11).

Revelation 7:11-12, "And all the angels [or theophanies of the end-time Bride] stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God forever and ever [ratifying the song of praise raised by the now fully redeemed non-elect foolish virgins]. Amen".

"And one of the elders asked [John, who represents Christ's end-time Bride], Who are these clothed in white robes? and whence are they? So I said, Sir, you know. And he told me, These are those who came out of the great tribulation, and have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." [This is the great tribulation through which every Christian has passed, from the conflicts of faith to the end of the Church Ages. Christ's end-time Bride does not enter the great tribulation of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Matthew 24:15-29; Revelation 1:9; 20:4)].

These are the Church Age or PART-Word saints who were raised in the first resurrection as Revelation 20:4-5 confirms, "And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given to them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the Word of God, and who had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection".

"This is why they are before the throne of God, and they serve Him day and night in His sanctuary: and He who sits on the throne shall live among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore; neither shall the sun beat down on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and He will lead them to springs of living water: and God will wipe away all tears from their eyes."

Revelation 7:1-8: the first vision in the parenthesis of Revelation 7:1-17 showed how God has been preparing the modern Israel State in the Land of the Covenant where 144,000 elect Israelite must return for their redemption in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. John recognized his fellow Israelites by their tribal dress.

Revelation 7:9-17: the second vision of this parenthesis shows three groups. In verses 9-10 we see the non-elect church of justified and sanctified foolish virgins within the circle of this Message who are "saved" but must be purged in the tribulation, martyred and "given white robes." The "angels" of verses 11-12 are Christ's end-time Bride who will not see death but change in the atoms and translated. Verses 14-17 portray the Church Age saints.

Revelation 8:1 is the Seventh Seal that unfolds the mysteries of the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals. It is these divinely revealed 'mystery truths' that literally turn the hearts of the children back to the faith of their Pentecostal fathers (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:1-4).

When the Lamb opened the Seventh Seal of Revelation 8:1, "there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour." We live in this brief interval before the end of grace. Christ's Mediation is fulfilled, there is no more intercession for ignorance of the fullness of the Word, the sanctuary is smoking, the Sacrifice has left and without the Blood the Mercy Seat is now a Judgment Seat; redemption is over and all seven Church Ages are past.

Revelation 10:1 – 11:13 is another parenthesis that explains how the Lord Himself descended from Heaven during this brief interval with the Bible open and unsealed in His right hand in company with the Church Age saints who fell asleep. Brother Branham said, "the Heavens was empty for the space of a half hour." Where is this big fellow, God, then? Uh-huh. See? He's in Christ. Sure!"  (The Sardisean Church Age, p. 348:96; I Thessalonians 4:14; Revelation 10:1). The heavens were silent while on earth Seven Thunders uttered their voices, and the unwritten mystery of what they said throughout seven Church Ages is revealed by the Seventh Angel. What were these mystery voices but the revelation of the fullness of that which was in PART, the PART Word or Spirit which made the seven Church Age Messengers "spirits" and their converts "a flame of Fire" (Hebrews 1:7).

This "silence in heaven" endures until the last member predestinated to Christ's end-time Bride is called out from man-made denominational teaching and baptized into His Body. The Shout and Voice of I Thessalonians 4:16 fulfilled, "the Trump of God will sound" (Matthew 25:6-10; Revelation 18:4).

Revelation 8:4-5, "And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the Angel's hand. And the Angel took the censer that offered the incense, and filled it with Fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake".

The great tribulation period under the Sixth Seal serves a threefold purpose. First for the purification of the foolish virgins, to purge them of their carnality; secondly, God purges the 144,000 elect Israelites "life for Life" according to the oath of their forefathers (Matthew 27:25), and thirdly, the whole earth, moon, stars, and all nature will be purged. The earth is cleansing herself for the millennium. Everything that has any uncleanliness is to be purged during the Sixth Seal under the Third Woe of Armageddon.

The Seventh Trumpet will signal the end of the Gentile dispensation, call the first resurrection, herald Israel's Feast of Trumpets; hereunder two Hebrew prophets will reveal their mystery and announce Christ's second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming to Israel as in Egypt they announced the appearance of Joseph, His type. It is also the climax of the Vials upon the false church. The Feast of Trumpets will reveal Christ to the 144,000 under the Sixth Seal and as Joseph's Gentile Bride and children were hidden in the palace when He revealed Himself to his brethren, Christ's Gentile Bride will be in the Palace when He reveals Himself to His brethren.

". . . and there were Voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake" (Revelation 8:5; 11:19; 16:17-18) at the sinking of Los Angeles in an unprecedented convulsion of nature at the close of the Gentile dispensation ending the "silence in heaven about the space of half an hour".

Romans 8:30, "Whom God foreknew [as called according to His purpose] He predestinated, these He also called: and whom He called, these He also justified: and whom He justified, these He also glorified." Rest, you are in a holy convocation, Jesus has done the work, now He is preparing us for the manifestation of the Sons of God and our Homecoming. nl991.htm

You can't read the Bible like a Newspaper

Bible Believers' Newsletter 990

"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 encouraging to have your company today. I trust you are well.

Android PhoneOur main article is entitled, "You can't read the Bible like a Newspaper." As a prospector for gold nuggets or gems one must move an awful lot of soil and stone, chapter and verse before striking precious a revelation. Once you see the Message of the hour, there's nothing else you can see but that. To the hundredfold Christian the rest is just filler—seed that fell by the wayside. Although the Book of Revelation is arranged in chronological order, one must prospect small claims back and forth throughout the whole Bible as this Book treats a series of parallel and sequential events such as the seven Seals, Trumpets, Church Ages and three woes interspersed by parentheses. When we spot the parentheses we can see the interrelationship of these elements and prophecy in historic time, and being so late in the day we will know the "things that are to be," which is why we are caught up in the rapture (Revelation 4:2).

Now don't overlook our news items because they will show you who are familiar with the Message of God's prophet things that are coming to pass right now.

"The Voice of the Archangel" whispering His secrets to your heart will confirm your place as an individual Member of His Body the Church correlated with true history and current time. He will persuade you that through His love you are more than a conqueror, and that nothing will be able to separate you from the love of God which is in Him.

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

Magnitude 8.2 Earthquake off Southern Mexico . . . Tsunami Waves

September 8, 2017 — Buildings collapsed and thousands of people were evacuated after the powerful tremor struck off the coast of Chiapas, the country's southernmost state, just before midnight on Thursday. Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto said that the earthquake was the strongest to strike the country in a century. Video footage posted to social media shows highways and buildings shaking as the tremors rocked Mexico . . . Tsunami waves . . . could reach three metres high . . . unlikely . . . to cause major destruction.

The earthquake appears to have triggered a rare phenomenon known as "earthquake lights" wherein the motion of certain rocks causes atmospheric electrical discharges. Full story: businessinsider.com

Comment: Minister and contributing author to this Newsletter was writing us an email ". . . a while ago the house we live in as well as all Belize and Guatemala and parts of Mexico was shaking and rocking . . . it seems like almost 2 minutes. A massive 8.0 magnitude earthquake struck Tres Picos on Mexico's pacific coast. It is quiet now but it was a terrible shaking here so I could imagine what it was near the epicentre. Just this morning we were looking at the devastation in the eastern Caribbean as Nuclear powered (my term) hurricane Irma now with wind speed of 175 mph sweeps through the Caribbean on its way to Florida . . .(or maybe New York/New Jersey). We are approaching the end of the Gentile dispensation, . . . the song says: "the Gentile's days numbered with horrors encountered, return O dispersed to your own . . ." I thank God that we are safe and will see what the morrow brings. Things are happening very swiftly now.

Email 2: I believe the San Andres fault and others on the west coast of America are getting more destabilized and priming up for the Big Super Quake will very very soon take down Los Angeles according to the Word of The LORD through the mouth of that blessed Prophet of Malachi 4:5-6.  Bro. Boyd

Proposal for a Lasting Korea Peace Agreement: Signing of a Bilateral North-South Korea Peace Treaty

September 5, 2017 — The president of South Korea Moon Jae-in is currently in Vladivostok for the East Asian Economic Summit (EEF), chaired by Russia's president Vladimir Putin. September 6-7. A high level North Korean delegation has also been sent to Vladivostok . . . in all likelihood, the two delegations will also meet behind closed doors, with president Vladimir Putin potentially playing a historic role in promoting a bilateral DPRK-ROK understanding, with a view to averting a US led war . . . Also of significance, Japan's Prime Minister Abe and President Putin will also be meeting in Vladivostok on September 6, on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum. The US is not a member of the EEF. Several important US business interests will nonetheless be present. Has an observer mission been sent by Washington?

The US has on countless occasions violated the Armistice Agreement. It has remained on a war footing. Casually ignored by the [Jew-dominated] Western media and the international community, the US has actively deployed nuclear weapons targeted at North Korea for more than half a century in violation of article 13b) of the Armistice agreement. More recently it has deployed the so-called THAAD missiles, which are also directed against China and Russia.

The US is still at war with North Korea. The armistice agreement signed in July 1953—which legally constitutes a "temporary ceasefire" between the warring parties (US, North Korea and China's Volunteer Army)—must be rescinded through the signing of a long-lasting peace agreement.

The US has not only violated the armistice agreement, it has consistently refused to enter into peace negotiations with Pyongyang, with a view to maintaining its military presence in South Korea as well as shunting a process of normalization and cooperation between the ROK and the DPRK . . . How can the 1953 Armistice agreement be replaced by a Long-lasting Peace Agreement given Washington's persistent refusal to enter into negotiations? . . . formulation of a comprehensive Bilateral North-South Peace Agreement, which would de facto lead to rescinding the 1953 armistice . . .

Gold Trade between Russia and China: A Step closer to De-dollarization?

QEII dusting
September 7, 2017 — Both the China—Russia economic cooperation and trade agreements, as well as their currencies being covered by gold is part of a larger already fairly advanced scheme of de-dollarization of their economies. In other words, Russia and China as well as the entire Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), are rapidly moving out of the US dollar hegemony.

Let's face it, the entire western monetary system is basically a fraud. It is privately made and privately owned, with the entire international payment system being controlled by the FED—which is totally privately owned—and the BIS (Bank for International Settlement, in Basle, Switzerland—also called the central bank of central banks). All international transfers and payments have to transit through Wall Street banks. This is the only reason why the US can "sanction" countries that do not behave according to Washington's dictate. It is illegal, and would not stand up before any international law.

But since international courts are also controlled by Washington—there is no chance that the US will be called to account for their criminal economic actions around the world—at least not for now; at least not as long as the western dollar-based monetary system has supremacy on the world markets. But this may change rapidly. And China and Russia are moving fast towards complete independence from the western economy . . . I could imagine that as a last-ditch effort, the FED or the US Treasury could instruct the IMF to go back to some kind of a 'gold standard'—which may come in the form of a massive devaluation of the dollar, where all those countries who do not have gold reserves or otherwise gold-convertible currencies would end up paying the enormous US dollar debt—becoming once again slaves to a new dollar-dependence.

By increasing gold reserves, Russia and China would be protected. Also, China and Russia, the world's largest gold producers, accounting for almost a quarter of annual gold production (3,100 tons in 2016), will be instrumental in making the international gold price.

The problem with gold today is that it is completely beholden to the western monetary system—the price of gold on the international market is quoted in US dollars . . . By dealing in other currencies than the US dollar, including in gold, world demand for the dollar will rapidly decline and so will the dollar's significance as a world reserve currency Full story: globalresearch.ca

Comment: Brother Branham said, "Rome has acquired nearly all the supplies of gold. The Jews have the bonds and all the paper. At the right time, the harlot will destroy the present day money system by calling in all the paper, and demanding gold. With no gold, the system falls. The Jews will be trapped and come into the alliance, and the harlot church will take over the whole world (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 314:1).

Jim Rickards suggested, The Fed can call a board meeting, vote on a new policy, walk outside and announce to the world that effective immediately, the price of gold is $5,000 per ounce. They can make that new price stick by using the Treasury's gold in Fort Knox and the major US bank gold dealers to conduct "open market operations" in gold. They will be a buyer if the price hits $4,950/ounce or less and a seller if the price hits $5,050/ounce or higher.

They will print money when they buy and reduce the money supply when they sell via the banks. This is exactly what the Fed does today in the bond market when they pursue QE. The Fed would simply substitute gold for bonds in their dealings. The Fed would target the gold price rather than interest rates . . . A rise in the price of gold from $1,000 per ounce to $5,000 per ounce is really an 80% devaluation of the dollar when measured in the quantity of gold that one dollar can buy. This 80% devaluation of the dollar against gold will cause all other dollar prices to rise also . . . President Franklin Roosevelt ordered an increase in the gold price from $20.67 per ounce to $35.00 per ounce, nearly a 75% rise in the dollar price of gold . . . The economy grew strongly from 1934-36 . . . (dailyreckoning.com

The crooks who run the Western financial system set up the gold market in a way that lets them control the price. Gold is not priced in the physical gold market where bullion is bought and sold. Gold is priced in a futures market where uncovered contracts that are settled in cash are bought and sold. As the futures contracts do not have to be covered in the way that shorting a stock has to be covered, the bullion bank agents of the central banks can create paper gold by printing naked contracts. In other words, it is possible to inflate the supply of gold in the market in which the gold price is determined by dumping futures contracts on the market. The huge increase in supply of paper gold drives down the futures price of gold. This Western policy is stupid, because it drives down the price of real gold for the major Asian purchasers—China, India, and Turkey. But the policy protects the value of the US dollar by preventing a rising gold price that would show the growing lack of confidence in fiat paper currencies . . .

It is my view that Bitcoin is the beneficiary of this rigging of the prices of gold and fiat currencies. Bitcoin cannot increase in supply, and Bitcoins are not priced in future markets that permit naked shorts . . . paulcraigroberts.org

Evacuation of Daesh commanders from Deir ez-Zor . . . by Pentagon!

September 8, 2017 — According to the Russian press agency Sputnik, US special forces have evacuated about 20 Daesh commanders from Deir ez-Zor before proceeding to liberate this Syrian city . . . On Tuesday 5 September 2017, the Syrian Arab Army set free the people of Deir ez-Zor, that had been under a jihadist siege for three years. It was helped out by the Russian army which, using penetrating missiles launched from the Mediterranean, destroyed the underground bunkers built by Lafarge. Full story: voltairenet.org

Syrian Rebel Defector: US-trained Unit sold Arms to ISIS

September 1, 2017 — Not only were the US-backed 'moderate' militants in southern Syria never meant to fight ISIS, but their commanders actually traded US-made weapons and ammunition to terrorists, a rebel defector claimed in an interview with Rossiya-24 . . . US and Norwegian instructors, stationed at the base, taught the militants to fire US-made weapons, trained mortar squads and conducted courses on accident-free driving on the battlefield.

The reality, however, differed from the proclaimed goal of fighting terrorists, as the unit has never seen action against IS and its commander actually traded the US-supplied weapons with the terrorists—all while the American instructors, deployed at the base, turned a blind eye . . . "When we learned that our unit's leader was selling weapons to ISIS terrorists, we reported that to American base command, but following our report no action has been taken, the Americans only ramped up the support to the man who was appointed our commander and who was dealing with ISIS," As-Salem said.

"And he was selling all sorts of weapons our unit possessed, US-made small arms, M-16 and M-4 rifles, recoilless rifles, various machine guns and ammunition for them." The areas controlled by the US-backed militants along the Syrian-Jordanian border were cut off from IS-held regions by Syrian government forces and its allies in June, rendering their declared goal of "fighting terrorism" entirely obsolete . . .

America's Changing Religious Identity

September 6, 2017 — The single largest survey of American religious and denominational identity ever conducted, based on interviews with more than 101,000 Americans from all 50 states conducted across 2016 . . . White Christians now account for fewer than half of the public. Today, only 43% of Americans identify as white Christian, and only 30% as white Protestant. In 1976, roughly eight in ten (81%) Americans identified as white and Christian, and a majority (55%) were white Protestants.

Fewer than one in five (17%) Americans now identify as white evangelical Protestant, but they accounted for nearly one-quarter (23%) of the public just a decade ago in 2006. Over the same period, white Catholics dropped five percentage points from 16% to 11%, and white mainline Protestants have shed an equal number, decreasing from 18% to 13%. More evidence that America's future is less white and less Christian: Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and the religiously unaffiliated are all far younger than white Christian groups. At least one-third of Muslims (42%), Hindus (36%), Buddhists (35%) and religiously unaffiliated Americans (34%) are under the age of 30. Slightly more than one in ten white Catholics (11%), white evangelical Protestants (11%), and white mainline Protestants (14%) are under 30. Full story: prri.org

Comment: The number and percentage of Christians in America, regardless of age or race in wildly exaggerated. But business is business. The spirit of Laodicea is in the ascent: it is time to go Home (II Thessalonians 2:3-12; II Timothy 3:1 – 4:4; Revelation 3:15).

Petition: Cease Defence Support for Same-Sex Marriage Campaign

September 1, 2017 — Just days after Australians begin receiving postal votes for the marriage plebiscite, Defence will sponsor a dinner for DEFGLIS —an organisation that campaigns for 'homosexual marriage.' It is also allowing the uniform of the Australian Defence Force to be associated with this organisation . . .

DEFGLIS . . . has lobbied federal parliament since 2012 to change marriage laws . . . It also supported Labor's proposed changes to anti-discrimination laws that would remove all freedoms from religious organisations . . . DEFGLIS is receiving funds from the Australian Defence Force in order to promote its agenda . . . Full story: bernardgaynor.com.au, youtube.com

Comment: Jesus Christ said, "As it was in the days of Lot; they ate and drank, bought and sold, planted and built; but the same day Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. So shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed" (Luke 17:28-30). Once again the world is in a Sodom condition and as it was in the days of Lot God has sent three messengers: Billy Graham and Oral Roberts ministered to the churches in Sodom, William Branham served Abraham's elect and separated group. He revealed the Son of man by "discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart" like the created Man in Genesis 18 and the virgin-born Man (Hebrews 4:12; 13:8).

Lot was a type of the denominational churches: they can discern the weather yet they cannot discern the Scriptural signs of the time. Lot was a type of today's apostate (once Christian) world wherein women have so degraded themselves until men's natural desires have been perverted.

The New World Order

1990 — Writing in 1990 author Ralph Epperson suggested "The New World Order" will include changes in:

The Family: homosexual marriages will be legalized, parents will not be allowed to raise their children (the state will) all women will be employed by the state and not allowed to be "homemakers," divorce will become exceedingly easy and monogamous marriage will be slowly phased out,

The Workplace: the government will become the owner of all of the factors of production, the private ownership of property will be outlawed,

Religion: religion will be outlawed and believers will be either eliminated or imprisoned, there will be a new religion: the worship of man and his mind, all will believe in the new religion. Full story: download-geek.com

Comment: This is 'old world' Communism.

In America roughly six in ten (58%) Americans express support for same-sex marriage today, compared to 53% in 2015, a five-point increase. Most religious groups in the US now support same-sex marriage (prri.org).

We look for a New Heavens and New Earth.


You can't read the Bible like a Newspaper

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 forever, that we may do all the Words of this Law" (Deuteronomy 29:29).

You cannot read the Bible like a newspaper. It is a love Letter; you have to be in love with the Author and have His mind in you in order to understand what His Word means rather than what it says.

Last week a Brother said, With so little time remaining I suppose we don't need a pastor now. Such thinking shows that we do need a pastor now; more faith and "diligence in study to show we are approved of God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth." Paul stated emphatically that "God's gift of the fivefold ministry is for the equipping of the saints for the work of service to the building up of the Body of Christ until we all attain to unanimity in the faith and precise and correct knowledge of the Son of God, unto a mature man wanting nothing necessary to completeness, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ" (Ephesians 4:12-13).

Archbishop Kay GoldsworthyLast week Bishop Kay Goldsworthy, shown elevating her wafer god when ordained Bishop of Gippsland, was ordained Anglican Archbishop of Perth. A bishop is a layman with an ability to teach: Paul taught, "a bishop . . . must be the husband of one wife. . . Let the woman receive instruction with complete submission, I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet [in church]" (I Timothy 2:11-14; 3:2; Genesis 3). Many who read the "letter" of God's Word cannot or will not see its meaning hid between the lines like the unwritten Seventh Seal. "Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank You, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and prudent, and revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in Your sight. All things are delivered to Me of My Father: and no man knows who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal Him. And He turned to His disciples and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that you see: for I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which you see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which you hear, and have not heard them"  (Luke 10:21-24).

If you read the directory of Anglican ministers you cannot but be impressed by their intellectual endeavour and scholarship attested by letters after their names. Like Bishop Goldsworthy, their learning is unaccompanied by obedience and faith in "the present Truth" that gives the new birth in this our day. Like any love letter the Message of God's Word is hidden between the lines and intended to be understood only by His sweetheart. When it came time for Israel to die "he called his son Joseph, [once clothed with a rainbow, a perfect type of Christ in Revelation 10], and said, If I have found grace in your sight, put your hand under my thigh, and deal kindly and truly with me; bury me not in Egypt, I will lie with my fathers; carry me out of Egypt, and bury me with my fathers" (Genesis 47:29-30). The explanation was unwritten: by faith Israel understood that the resurrection would be in Canaan, not in Egypt (Matthew 27:52-53), just as we understand that we will be translated only if we are dead to the world and buried in the Capstone of Christ's Body.

It was not yet written but by faith Abel knew to sacrifice a lamb rather than fruit and vegetables like his intellectual half brother Cain. Jesus wrote, "Upon this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell cannot prevail against it," yet Judaeo Catholics believe He is building His Church upon Peter, and Protestants believe He is building His Church on Jesus. Both guesses are wrong. Jesus told Peter in Matthew 16:17 that He will build His Church on the rock of spiritual revelation from Above. This is "the foundation [of Peter], the apostles and prophets [and the faith of you and me]"  (Ephesians 2:20). So many fail to see these simple truths that the Bible becomes a riddle to them.

The Book of Revelation is replete with parentheses and impossible to understand unless we recognize them. A parenthesis is a word, phrase or verse usually marked off by brackets, dashes, commas, or even chapters, and inserted as an explanation or afterthought into a passage that is grammatically complete without it, but which provides additional understanding of matters past, present or future.

The Sixth Seal of Revelation 6:1-17 is followed by the parenthesis of chapter seven (between the Sixth and the Seventh Seals). As we read through the Book of Revelation please bear in mind that John represents you as a member of Christ's end-time Bride, raptured into the Spirit in Revelation 4:2 to see things which must be after the Church Ages ended in Revelation 3:22.

Revelation 7:1, "After this [vision of the Sixth Seal (Revelation 6:12-17)] .... insert your name .... [looked back in time and] saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, [in order] that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree".

horsemen of the apocalypseThese four angels are New Testament manifestations of the demonic powers Satan deployed to overrule the four Gentile world empires characterised by the animal nature of brute beasts bereft of the dignity of man and estranged from God (Daniel 7). With all its sagacity the animal looks always to the ground without consciousness of relation to God; thus through inbred moral weakness inherited from the past the unrepentant Gentile world empires have grown weaker and wiser in each generation terminating in world government ruled by Satan incarnate in the false prophet, thenceforth known as "the beast" (Revelation 13:2-3, 12-14; 17:8, 11; 19:20; 20:10). Throughout the Christian era the angels are described as four coloured horses Satan rode in succession through the first Four Seals of Revelation 6:1-8 as he acquired spiritual power, political power, and demonic power. They coalesce under the Fourth Seal as the sickly green "pale horse" of Laodicea, and after the translation of Christ's Bride under the Sixth Seal Satan will be cast down to earth where he will incarnate the Pope (Revelation 13:2) and ride to perdition with his followers (Revelation 6:8; 20:10).

"Winds" signify war and strife. Four winds and four corners signify world war. Never had the whole world gone to war until 1914, there has been no peace since and there will be no peace until Jesus comes. World War I was "the beginning of sorrows" (Matthew 24:8). Those angels went forth with their slaughter weapons to destroy the whole world, striking earth with machine guns, heavy artillery, hand grenades, aerial bombing, tanks, submarines and poison gas under the First Woe of earth's birth pains for renewal.

In November of 1917, the Balfour Declaration was signed, expressing British approval of Zionism. In December the message 'Allenby's coming' became corrupted to 'Allah's coming' as it passed down Turkish lines, and the Turks surrendered Jerusalem to General Allenby without a shot. It was the hand of God: World War I ended as suddenly and mysteriously on the eleventh hour of the eleventh Day of the eleventh month of 1918, and the Armistice was signed. To this day no one knows who ordered the cease-fire. Having prophesied that under the Fifth Trumpet of World War I those sealed with the Spirit should not be hurt (Revelation 9:4) God caused the war to stop in the early years of the Pentecostal Revival or Laodicean Church Age (1906-1963). Had He not intervened the slaughter would have continued until it became a premature Armageddon (Matthew 24:22).

The mystery ceases once its secret is known. Commander William Guy Carr (RCN Ret.) explains the natural, political reason World War I stopped mysteriously, followed by the Treaty of Versailles so unfavourable to Germany:

"The Secret Powers" have always had their agents divide the population of countries they plan to subjugate into many religious, economic, political, social, and labour groups. Their agents then divide the various groups into as many factions as possible. [This is the function of "multiculturalism" so-called, and it explains why waves of inassimilable refugees of diverse tongues, religions, cultures and colours, few of whom can be employed, are being forcibly resettled under UN agreements in primarily Western, once Christian countries slated to be overthrown – Ed]. Their motto is "United we stand. Divided they fall".

Most German citizens, excepting only Communists, were agreed upon the following issues: that Germany had been winning the war when she had first been betrayed and afterwards victimized. That the international money-lenders had used the so-called democracies of Britain, France, and the United States, to defeat Germany's armed forces. That the Jewish-led Communist Party assisted the international bankers by bringing about the chaotic conditions that preceded the signing of the Armistice and the revolution that followed. They agree that every patriotic German, male and female, should do his or her utmost to build up post-war Germany, and break the economic and military stranglehold placed on their nation by the Treaty of Versailles."

"Most political leaders, except Communists, were also agreed that in order to free themselves of the economic sanctions imposed upon the nation, it was necessary to break away from their dependence on the international bankers for financial assistance in the form of interest bearing loans. In other words, most German politicians, except Communists, were agreed that Germany should depart from the practice of financing the nation's business by incurring debts, a practice which had been imposed upon England in 1694, France in 1790, and the United States in 1791, by the international bankers. They realized that this system had resulted in astronomical National Debts, the principal and interest payments on which were guaranteed and secured by Direct Taxation of the people" (Pawns in the Game, p. 146).

"It will be proved that the same evil influences were at work in all negotiations."

"The circumstances surrounding the signing of the Armistice on November 11, 1918 must be understood. The German High Command did not ask for the Armistice because their armies were in danger of defeat. When the Armistice was signed the German armies had never been defeated on the field of battle. The German High Command asked for an Armistice so that they could devote their efforts towards preventing a Communist Revolution. Rosa Luxemburg, and her Jewish-dominated Spartacus Bund, had planned to duplicate in Germany what Lenin had achieved in Russia exactly one year previously." [When Adam Weishaupt founded the "Illuminati" in the Electorate of Bavaria he adopted the name of "Brother Spartacus" within the order].

"The Armistice was signed as a prelude to a negotiated Peace. It is of the utmost importance to remember this fact because an Armistice entered into under those conditions is far different from unconditional surrender."

"The events which caused the German High Command to realize their danger on the home front were as follows:"

"Rosa Luxemburg's revolutionaries infiltrated into the German High Seas fleet. They became very active in 1918. They spread rumours that the ships, and their crews, were to be sacrificed in an all out battle with the combined British and American navies. The rumour-mongers stated that the purpose of the battle was to cripple the combined allied fleets to such an extent they would be unable to defend the British coasts against a military invasion planned to bring the German Warlords victory. The Communist "Cells" exhorted the German seamen to mutiny because they claimed that the planned invasion of Britain was doomed to failure, due to the fact British scientists had developed a secret weapon. According to the rumour-mongers, invading craft could, by the use of chemicals fired from guns ashore or dropped from planes, be surrounded by a sea of flames. Fire, heat, and lack of oxygen would create conditions in which nothing human could survive. The subversives argued that the only way to avoid such a fate was to bring about a revolution to end the war. The German seamen mutinied the third of November, 1918.

"On November seventh, a large body of marines deserted while on their way to the Western Front. They had been told that they were going to be used to "Spear-head" the rumoured invasion of Britain. Meantime, uprisings had caused shut-downs in many German industrial centres. Subversives talked defeatism. Conditions deteriorated until, on November ninth, the Kaiser abdicated."

"The Social Democratic Party immediately formed a [Weimar] Republican Government. Armistice was signed on November eleventh, 1918. The Communist leaders of the Spartacus Bund had placed their "Cells" in key positions within the new government and throughout the armed forces. Their combined efforts created chaotic conditions everywhere. Rosa Luxemburg then played her trump card. She forced the Socialist government to order the immediate demobilization of the German armed forces. This action prevented the German High Command from using their well disciplined troops to prevent the pending revolution which broke out in January, 1919."

[The same treachery was employed against the Allies after the German defeat in World War II when US troops were prematurely demobbed, and equipment and ordnance worth billions of dollars was dumped at sea, giving Judaeo-Communist Russia free reign – Ed].

"Before she usurped power in Germany, Rosa Luxemburg was promised the same financial assistance and military aid the international bankers had given to Lenin and Trotsky a year before. The initial stages of her revolutionary effort were financed by the fund they made available through the Soviet Ambassador Joffe. The revolutionary effort only failed to accomplish what Lenin had achieved in Russia when the promised aid failed to materialize after Rosa had launched her initial onslaught. Then she realized her Jewish Spartacus Bund had been betrayed by the very men she considered her friends. This incident alone should prove that "The Secret Power" behind the World Revolutionary Movement is not concerned about the welfare of the Jews any more than the Gentiles. The majority of the Directors of the WRM are men who descended from the Khazars, Tartars, and other Mongol-Asiatic non-Semitic races. They adopted the Jewish religion to suit their own selfish purposes between the 7th and 8th centuries. (See "The Iron Curtain Over America" by Prof. John Beaty. Wilkinson Publishing Co., Dallas, Texas. p. 15-16). They have used Jews exactly as they have used Gentiles as "Pawns in the Game".

"The purpose of the double-cross was two-fold. The men who plot and plan the World Revolutionary Movement did not want Germany sovietized until after they had used the German people to fight another war against Britain. They calculated a Second World War would render both Empires so utterly exhausted that they could then be easily subjugated by the resources of the USSR they controlled under Lenin's dictatorship. In order to start a Second World War, they considered it was necessary to build up within Germany an intense anti-Semitic hatred for the purpose of dividing Europe into two opposing camps—Fascist and Anti-Fascist. The plan required all communized countries to remain neutral, in a military sense, while their agents did everything possible to aggravate the adverse conditions the master-minds created."

"After the Jewish-dominated revolution collapsed for want of aid, the German Aryan people took a full measure of revenge on the Jewish people. Thousands of Jews, men, women and children, were rounded up during the night and executed. Rosa Luxemburg and her right hand man, Karl Liebknecht, were captured and shot in the head like mad dogs by a German lieutenant. Thus, once again, a large number of Jews were made to pay the penalty for the crimes of a small group of international gangsters who used them as pawns in the game of international intrigue."

"To prolong and intensify the hatred of the German people for the Jews, propaganda blamed the Jews for bringing about the military defeat of Germany's armed forces and the unjust and humiliating terms enforced by the Treaty of Versailles. Propaganda strengthened the trend towards National-Socialism in Germany by representing Britain, France, and the United States as selfish capitalistic countries influenced and controlled by the international Jewish bankers. Thus the way was prepared for the advent of Hitler." [Britain has been a colony of the Jews' City of London since her conquest in 1688; as a colony of England the United States is thus a colony of the City of London, like Canada, Australia, and many other countries].

"Soon after the Armistice was signed the international bankers instructed Lenin to consolidate the Communist gain and prepare to defend the Soviet States against capitalistic aggression. Lenin announced this as his policy. Trotsky disagreed bitterly. He advocated immediate revolution in all European countries which remained to be subjugated. He wanted to help Germany's Spartacus Bund in order to keep the revolutionary spirit alive" (ibid, p. 97-99).

Under the Fifth Trumpet of World War I "The locusts [demons] were commanded that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; [the force of this plague is to fall directly upon mankind, not, as in the former judgments, upon the earth, and then indirectly upon men] but only such men as have not Seal of God in their foreheads" (Revelation 9:4). Christians were exempt.

Church AgesBrother Branham likened the Armistice to the parable of the labourers in the vineyard (Matthew 20:1-16) where the landowner engaged day labourers to harvest his vineyard and agreed to pay each a penny. Hiring additional labourers throughout the day until the eleventh hour, He promised to pay them "whatsoever is right." At knock-off time he had his steward pay those men beginning from the last to the first, and each man was paid a penny. The sealing Angel of Revelation 7:2 called a 'cease fire' in Laodicea for the restoration ministry of Malachi 4:5-6 so that the eleventh-hour Gentile Bride could receive the same Holy Ghost blessing that the apostolic saints received in the first hour.

Brother Branham said, "Now, the seventh angel's Message is to open the mystery of the Seals, calling the eleventh hour Gentile workers to receive the same pay that the first hour workers got. See? Now, Jesus taught it . . . It's so perfectly, how the first hour messengers with the Word, with the Gospel, with the Truth, they came in at the Day of Pentecost. Then there was a Dark Age that blocked them out. Then at the middle of the day, Luther, and Wesley, and them came in. And then there is to be an evening time Message, and to receive the same thing that they did at the beginning. The evening time Message is to restore back again" (Recognizing Your Day and its Message, p. 8:38).

Revelation 7:2, "And I saw another Angel ascending from the east, having the Seal of the living God, [Christ, the same Angel that sealed the elect Israelite Christians before Titus besieged Jerusalem]: and He cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the [144,000 Israelite] servants of our God in their foreheads".

"The sea" is the multitudinous population surrounding the Mediterranean over which four Gentile world empires ruled (Daniel 7:2; Revelation 17:15). Ultimately it signifies the beast power of Papal Rome. "The earth" signifies the United States which intervened in World War I, and later in World War II wherein "he did great wonders, so that he made [nuclear] fire come down from heaven on earth in the sight of men. [Blockbuster and atomic bombs struck earth with increased pain in the Second Woe during World War II and have continued earth's birth pains for seventy-two years]. And deceives them that dwell on the earth by means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast: saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make a [Protestant] image to the Beast [of Imperial Rome], which had the wound by a sword, and revived as Papal Rome. And he had power to give life to the [(once) Protestant] image of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic beast, that the image of the beast should issue edicts and cause all who refuse to receive the mark of the beast in their forehead, which is forced conversion to Rome's trinitarian dogma [as in almost a thousand years of the Dark Ages], or in their right hand which indicates servitude to the once Protestant US image of the beast" (Revelation 13:15-18).

America was settled by men seeking to worship free from the oppression of an established church as prophesied in Revelation 12:6 and 13:11. Here the United States is represented as an American buffalo, "and he has two horns like a lamb [signifying the separation of church and state], and he spoke like the dragon"—Rome—as attested by 222 of 239 years of US wars of aggression since 1776. Only in eleven separate cases did the United States formally declare war against foreign nations. See the animated map prepared by the Congressional Research Service.
This demonstrates and confirms the statement by Britain's Jewish Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli: "Governments do not govern, but merely control the machinery of government, being themselves controlled by the hidden hand." Surely you feel the "squeeze!" God cannot deal with Israel and the Church concurrently and "He has concluded the Gentiles in unbelief" (Romans 11:32). He told Abram, "In the fourth generation Jacob's children [blood Israelites] will return to Canaan again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full" (Genesis 15:16). We live at the very end of the Fourth Seal of the regeneration of Adam's race. After God takes us Home He will call blood Israelites—not Jews—back to the land of their Covenant to fulfil Daniel's Seventieth Week.

Brother Branham said, "Notice, but God is [patiently waiting for that last elect to recognize their day and its Message], waiting till the iniquity of these modern Amorites [apostate (once) Christian nations like the United States and Australia] is filled. Don't worry, He'll have His Moses ready at that time. There will be an exodus someday, to the Promised Land. There will be a Moses come along, who will call out . . . It'll come, one of these days.

You say, "Well, look how we're progressing."

Sure, the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full. It'll come, one of these days. Let them destroy themselves. Civilization, knowledge perverts God's Word to suit their own taste. Every denomination does the same thing. Satan then preaches his own gospel of knowledge in his own church . . . (Matthew 24:24; II Timothy 3:1-9, 4:3-4).

There is only two classes of people spoke of in the New Testament. "The children of God, and the children of the Devil" . . . (Ephesians 2:2; I John 3:10). Then how can the Bride of Christ associate in a denomination, when one is disobedient and the other obedient? How can one be the Word; and the other one perverted word? How can a prostitute and a clean woman walk together in agreement? They can't do it. They have no fellowship at all. "Come out from amongst them!" It's of the Devil. It's the mark of the beast. Heading right into it now; all denominations. I don't care who's it is" (The God of this Evil Age, p. 29:134-136).

The angel with the Sixth Trumpet of World War II was told: "Loose the four angels which are bound [by Roman creed, dogma and superstition] in the great river Euphrates [that was the eastern border of the Roman Empire, a buffer zone between the East and the West]. And the four angels which had been prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year [Armistice Day under the Fifth Trumpet of World War I], were loosed [again], to slay the third part of men"—Israelites and their impersonators—in World War II (Revelation 9:14-15; Matthew 24:9-13). We live under the Sixth Trumpet and have demonstrated that all three exterminations or holocausts, each of six million so-called Jews, claimed without evidence in the twentieth century were lucrative technologically impossible hoaxes. Nonetheless Jews in large numbers and no doubt some Israelites relocated from Europe to Britain, the United States, Australia, and elsewhere in World War I and World War II.

Historically and politically the Fifth and Sixth Trumpets tie in with the Sixth Vial of Revelation 16:12-16 which is pouring out now. Fascism, Nazism and Communism are three spirits spawned by the diktats of Imperial Rome, the First Nicaea Council (where the Judaeo-Roman Universal church organized), and the first pope. They will merge in Communism, "For they are the spirits of demons, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty".

Do you see where we stand? The prophecies of scripture are being transformed into history in real time. Unfortunately the Jewish-controlled media of the City States of the Vatican, London, and the District of Columbia that rule the world spiritually, financially, and militarily strangle truth and publish lies, the page three girl and sports.

The Bride will be translated before God deals with Israel and He cannot deal with the nation outside the Land of the Covenant. His mysterious twofold objective in World Wars I and II was to free Palestine from the Ottoman Empire to establish an Israel state, and to make self-styled Jews so unwelcome in Europe that they would emigrate and build that state for the Israelites to occupy as their forefathers had established Jebus, its villages and farms for the Israelites under Joshua to occupy. When the earthquake demolishes the Dome of the Rock, the Muslims will invade and utterly defeat Israel; Russia will secure her nuclear arms and administer her oil and gas resources, and a mass exodus of Israelis will enable Jacob, then non persona grata in Muslim lands, to repatriate to the homeland for their redemption (Isaiah 6:9-13; 13:6-16; Joel 2:1-11; Daniel 11:39; Zechariah 14:2; Revelation 11:2, 16:19).

The 'Jew' is invariably non-Semitic, unrelated to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and impersonating the people of the Old Covenant. Nonetheless, "all things work together for good to those who love God, who are the called according to His purpose" (Romans 8:28). In this instance 144,000 elect pure blood descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

In Revelation 7:3 Jesus commands the four destroying angels to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, "Saying, hurt not the earth [speaking no doubt of the Third Woe, earth's last birth pain in the natural, and of the US image to the beast in the spiritual], neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants [Israelites] in their foreheads" (Zechariah 12:1 – 13:9). This is parallel to Ezekiel 9:4-6 which prophesied the slaughter of the unsealed Israelites 664 years later when General Titus besieged Jerusalem at Passover, AD70.

The judgments of Revelation 7:3 descend upon the apostate, once Christian nations in answer to the prayers of observant non-elect Israelites martyred throughout the Gentile dispensation under the Fifth Seal (Revelation 6:9-11). Under the Fifth Trumpet Christians sealed with the Spirit were exempt from the demonic plague (Revelation 9:4) while under the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet God's 144,000 elect servants are preserved from death until "a nation in born in one day" (Isaiah 66:8).

Revelation 7:4-8 "I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel . . ." After their martyrdom Brother Branham's seventh vision will come to pass wherein he saw the United States annihilated before Vatican City State, triggering Armageddon and the consummation of life (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:3).

According to (Gk.) 'chronos' time and Hosea 6:1-3 prophesied in 780BC, we are living at the termination of the Gentile dispensation. "Come, and let us return to the Lord: for He has torn, but He will heal us; He has smitten, and He will bandage us. After two days will He revive us: in the third day He will raise us up, and we shall live before Him. Then we shall know, if we press on to know the Lord. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; and He shall come to us as the rain, as the former rain waters the earth in springtime".

780BC + AD2017 = 2797 years—almost three years of days as confirmed by II Peter 3:8-10, "Beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night . . ."

The night of Jesus' physical absence is well spent. Let us look up and redeem the (Gk.) 'kairos' time, for your physical draws nigh IF you are at one with the Message and have the Token on display.

Revelation 7:9-17, After the sealing of the 144,000 .... [insert your name] .... looked and beheld a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations and tribes and people and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palm branches were in their hands; and they cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb. And all the angels standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, fell before the throne on their faces and worshipped God, Saying, Amen: Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honour and power and might be unto our God forever and ever. Amen."

"And one of the elders asked me, Who are these clothed in white robes? and whence are they?"

[John readily identified the Israelites by their dress and the tribal markings on their robes, but not the multitude of diverse features, colours and dress]. "So he said, Sir, you know. And he told me, These are those who came out of the great tribulation, and have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." [This has been the great tribulation upon the Christian Church by Jewry, Judaeo-Romanism, anti-Christian individuals and groups over two thousand years from Matthew 24:15-20, 21-29 to our translation (Revelation 1:9; 20:4)].

"This is why they are before the throne of God, and they serve Him day and night in His sanctuary: and He who sits on the throne shall live among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore; neither shall the sun beat down on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb is in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and He will lead them to springs of living water: and God will wipe away all tears from their eyes".

This vision of the glorified Bride of all Ages in the New Jerusalem closes the parenthesis between the Sixth Seal of Revelation 6:12-17 the Revelation Seventh Seal of Revelation 8:1. It's time to go Home. nl990.htm
