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

Android PhoneThe malicious and cowardly attack upon Syria by Jew-ruled apostate (once) Christian nations living on past reputations betrays the cruelty of sin, and the penalty that it cost to rid sin from the lives of God's elect. This attack was rationalized by a BIG LIE like the three holocausts or exterminations, each of six million 'Jews' claimed in the twentieth century. This BIG LIE claims that although the US and UK trained, armed and directed their proxy Jihadist armies in chemical warfare, the noble, brave patriot President al-Assad is guilty of their dastardly deeds. In reality Vatican City State holds the gold whilst Mammonites such as Rothschild juggle the global fractional reserve system of usury that creates fiat money out of thin air aided by the oil-rich Dönmeh Jews of the House of Saud.

Whilst Vatican gold is a real asset that will only appreciate in value, Rothschild City of London paper wealth can fail overnight with the world economy. As for the sovereign City State of Washington D.C., a nation alien to the fifty united States it rules, Brother Branham's prophecy has overtaken its military and technologically, Russia is ten years ahead.

Today we complete our study, "The Friend of the Bridegroom." Brother William Marrrion Branham was a Covenant Prophet and the last Word prophet to us Gentiles, seen and heard throughout the Book of Revelation and by prophets in the Old Testament. He led us to the eternal Land of the millennium, and like Joshua who led the children of Israel into Canaan, he was "strong and very courageous and observed to do according to all the revealed Word, turning from it neither to the right hand or to the left, so that he prospered wherever he went" (Joshua 1:7). In this day eternal Life rests upon receiving and living by a clear understanding of the Message Jesus Christ delivered through his ministry.

The dispensation of the seven Church Ages in which the true Kingdom of heaven was not entered has ended; the Church Age saints enter the Presence via the grave. "[Like the Old Testament saints], these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise of glorification (Romans 8:17-19): God having provided some better thing for us, (I Corinthians 15:51-56) that they without us should not be made complete." They are still waiting for the last saint predestinated to Christ's end-time Bride to be baptized into the Body in this holy convocation (Leviticus 23:15-21), before their resurrection and glorification Church Age by Church Age, and for us to manifest that we are the Sons of God. Then one of them will appear, elevating faith for translation grace, and your terrestrial body will take on a celestial body transformed in a moment of time to take you Home. Because Jesus was born without sexual desire, your new body will be without sexual desire.

While the Church Age saints waited for His Coming, the friend of the Bridegroom Brother Branham introduced the Kingdom anew with the appearing of Jesus Christ in the Cloud on Sunset Mountain and we have been blessed in fellowship with the Son of Man (King of kings and Judge) for fifty-five years since His second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming. In our entering the Kingdom, God raised us up from the dust to the place of fullness of Life and experience, filling the soul with Himself as the Logos has brought us into the understanding of ourselves.
Thy way, not mine, O Lord,
However dark it be;
Lead me by Thine own hand,
Choose out the path for me.

Smooth let it be or rough,
It will be still the best;
Winding or straight, it leads
Right onward to Thy rest.

I dare not choose my lot;
I would not, if I might;
Choose Thou for me, my God,
So I shall walk aright.

Take Thou my cup, and it
With joy or sorrow fill,
As best to Thee may seem;
Choose Thou my good and ill.
Choose Thou for me my friends,
My sickness or my health;
Choose Thou my cares for me,
My poverty or wealth.

The kingdom that I seek
Is Thine: so let the way
That leads to it be Thine,
Else I must surely stray.

Not mine, not mine the choice
In things or great or small;
Be Thou my guide, my strength
My wisdom, and my all.

Thy Way, Not Mine, O Lord
By Horatius Bonar, 1857

A Statement issued by the Patriarchates

April 16, 2018 — We, the Patriarchs: John X, Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, Ignatius Aphrem II, Syrian Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, and Joseph Absi, Melkite-Greek Catholic Patriarch of Antioch, Alexandria, and Jerusalem, condemn and denounce the brutal aggression that took place this morning against our precious country Syria by the USA, France and the UK, under the allegations that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons. We raise our voices to affirm the following:

This brutal aggression is a clear violation of the international laws and the UN Charter, because it is an unjustified assault on a sovereign country, member of the UN. It causes us great pain that this assault comes from powerful countries to which Syria did not cause any harm in any way.

The allegations of the USA and other countries that the Syrian army is using chemical weapons and that Syria is a country that owns and uses this kind of weapon, is a claim that is unjustified and unsupported by sufficient and clear evidence.

The timing of this unjustified aggression against Syria, when the independent International Commission for Inquiry was about to start its work in Syria, undermines of the work of this commission. This brutal aggression destroys the chances for a peaceful political solution and leads to escalation and more complications . . .

We salute the courage, heroism and sacrifices of the Syrian Arab Army which courageously protects Syria and provides security for its people. We pray for the souls of the martyrs and the recovery of the wounded. We are confident that the army will not bow before the external or internal terrorist aggressions; they will continue to fight courageously against terrorism until every inch of the Syrian land is cleansed from terrorism. We, likewise, commend the brave stand of countries which are friendly to the Syria and its people . . . Full story: voltairenet.org

Russia reveals Who 'Staged' Syria Gas Attack

April 16, 2018 — Russia's permanent representative to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), Alexander Shulgin, said Russia has irrefutable evidence that there was no chemical weapons incident in Douma . . . "this was a planned provocation by the British intelligence services, probably, with the participation of their senior allies from Washington with the aim of misleading the international community and justifying aggression against Syria" . . . Syrian Civil Defense Force (aka the White Helmets) is funded in part by USAID . . . contracts awarded to Chemonics International Inc. (DBA Chemonics). The first award . . . $111.2 million . . . January 2013 to June 2017 . . . for managing a "quick-response mechanism supporting activities that pursue a peaceful transition to a democratic and stable Syria." The second . . . $57.4 million . . . August 2015 to August 2020 . . . Implement Fast Transitions SWIFT IV" (Disobedient Media) . . . Full story: zerohedge.com

Comment: Eight reasons why the latest Syria chemical weapons attack allegations are almost certainly complete nonsense.

The US is involved in overthrowing Assad . . . to gain oil resources, keep US dollar afloat, cripple Russian economy, fight for Israel's interests. Bankers, multinational oil companies and military contractors . . . . little chance peace will break out in Syria because the economies of Russia, Iran, the US and Saudi Arabia hinge on whether pipelines will be built across the war-torn country . . . Israel seeks to expand its territory and dominance in Middle East . . . war was used by globalists . . . to overwhelm Europe with migrant refugees who pose a threat. needtoknow.news

April 12, 2018 — Poison gas, the weapon of choice for fear . . . the US economy is based on war, is based on weapon manufacturing and international banking which finances weapon manufacturing and the exploitation of mineral resources coveted by weapon manufacturing. The entire war industry with all its associated civil services and industries, of banking, electronics, aviation, mining . . . makes up more than half of the US GDP—but of course, it's never broken down that way. The [self] chosen people will control the world. Well, they do already—financially at least the western part of our globe. But it's not enough . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

Syrian 'Show' must go on . . . Carefully 'Choreographed' Dance between US and Russia

President alAssad
April 14, 2018 — What just happened this morning in Syria was nothing more than a carefully "choreographed" dance between the US and Russia that allowed both rivals to "save face" and avoid further escalating the situation.

The US launched over 100 cruise missiles at Syria together with its French and British allies, although the Russian Ministry of Defense reported that 71 of them were intercepted by the targeted country's Soviet-era air-defense systems . . . the US and Russia were communicating this entire time through the so-called "deconfliction channel, so it's very possible that Washington warned Moscow in advance of the exact targets that it planned to hit and maybe even when. This would explain why Syria's Soviet-era air-defense systems were surprisingly more effective against modern-day cruise missiles than Iraq's exact same ones were 15 years earlier against much more dated weapons at the time . . .

Comment: April 14, 2018 — Two medics from the hospital of Douma told the truth about the staged video, widely spread by the discredited [US-UK funded, trained and equipped] White Helmets. The participants also say the event in Douma is a provocation.

April 14, 2018 — The Tass report says that the White Helmets staged the event because "London" had told them that the Assad Government was planning to bomb in Douma during 3-6 April and that the 'rebels' should then film their people bringing in victims of a chemical attack there, so as to provide a basis for subsequent bombing by the UK, US, and allies, as an alleged humanitarian response . . . The Tass account also implies that Russia has in its possession communications from the UK Government to the White Helmets, and will publish these communications unless the UK will back down without directly invading Syria . . .

April 15, 2018 — What is at stake here from the OPCW investigation is not only the international legitimacy of Syria's Government, but the international legitimacy of the Governments that invaded it on April 13th. These are extremely high stakes, even if no court in the world will possess the authority to adjudicate the guilt—either if the US and its allies lied, or if the Syrian Government lied.

April 14, 2018 — Joe Biden revealed in a speech at Harvard University in October of 2014, that the US 'allies'—Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Turkey—internationalized the war Syria by supporting the terrorist groups in Syria; that secret e-mails by Hillary Clinton stated unequivocally that both Saudi Arabia and Qatar supported, and perhaps continue doing so, the jihadi groups in Syria; and that Turkey, a close US ally, most likely played a major role in spreading chemical weapons in Syria.

Independent Swiss Lab: 'BZ Toxin' in Skripal Poisoning; US/UK-produced, not Russian

April 15, 2018 — the independent Swiss state Spiez lab, the substance used on Sergei Skripal was an agent called BZ, which was never produced in Russia, but was in service in the US, UK, and other NATO states.

The Swiss center sent the results to the OPCW. However, the UN chemical watchdog limited itself only to confirming the formula of the substance used to poison the Skripals in its final report without mentioning anything about the other facts presented in the Swiss document . . . Moscow would ask the OPCW about its decision to not include any other information provided by the Swiss in its report . . . the Swiss lab is also an internationally recognized center of excellence in the field of the nuclear, biological, and chemical protection and is one of the five centers permanently authorized by the OPCW.

Comment: March 27, 2018 — Salisbury nerve agent attack reveals $70 million Pentagon program at Porton Down. Porton Down scientists test chemical gas on London Tube passengers southfront.org.

April 14, 2018 — According to another group of experts, the US-led massive missile strike on Syria had an important background role. It was a kind of the US training ahead of a possible military action against Iran, actively promoted by the key American ally in the Middle East—Israel. This is why a part of the strike was delivered from the areas of the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf, which are relatively close to Iran.

In this case, if the Russian statement is confirmed, this will mean that the US and its allies not capable to deliver a decisive missile strike to defeat Iran in low cost . . . actions of the Syrian military assisted by Russia and Iran likely reduced significantly the results of the US strike and it turned into a PR action. southfront.org

April 16, 2018 — The question begs: Why before the OPCW could verify the claim of a nerve gas attack?—The answer is simple, because there was no nerve gas attack. In fact, there was no attack at all. It was all fake and staged. The OPCW would have found out—and killed any false justification to assault Syria. That's why.

That President Assad murders his own people, is, of course, a ridiculous claim, making absolutely no sense. Having reconquered Ghouta and Douma from the terrorists, i.e. from the US, UK and French proxies—and winning the foreign imposed war, why would anyone poison their compatriots, mostly women and children. Besides, as proven by Russian soldiers who were immediately after the alleged attack on site, there was no attack, there were no signs of an attack—a fact corroborated by many people questioned in the street, none of them witnessed any attack, chemical or otherwise.

This fake event was fabricated and staged by the White Helmets, a group of Al-Qaeda trained propaganda associates to the US/NATO and their European and Middle Eastern vassals. They have done this before . . ." (globalresearch.ca).

April 16, 2018 — The structure of US military alliances is in crisis . . . "enduring alliances" in support of America's "Long War" can no longer be relied upon. NATO is in crisis: The US and several NATO member states are not only at war with Syria, they are also at war with Turkey . . . which remains NATO's heavyweight in terms of conventional ground forces [and] has an alliance with both Russia and Iran, which in turn are supportive of the government of Bashar al Assad . . . "China has expressed openness toward Turkey's joining the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, a security alliance . . . seen as a counterweight to NATO" (to which Turkey happens to be a member) . . ." (globalresearch.ca).

April 19, 2018 — The Skripals have survived but they are not safe: the Novichok fraud should bring down the UK Government.

Trump's Attempts to get us in a Thermonuclear Ditch must be Stopped

April 13, 2018 — Ever-Russophobic Britain . . . happy to unleash a propaganda war against Moscow together with Washington . . . followed by a major cyber offensive. On April 6, 2018, a massive hacker attack began against Cisco switches, which led to entire segments of the Internet going down. According to the conclusions of Kaspersky Lab, Russia was the primary target . . . more than 240 banks based in Russia came under attack by the Cobalt Strike virus . . . which allowed the hackers to steal more than 20 million dollars in the course of this one attack . . . head of the NSA, Paul M. Nakasone . . . officially pledged to turn cyber capabilities he was entrusted with into first strike weapons . . . directed against the Russian Federation . . .

A prominent role in this ongoing cyberwar against Russia is being assigned to the Baltic states in general and Norway in particular . . . the information about the ongoing anti-Russian cyber espionage was confirmed by a report issued by the NSA on the state of cooperation with Norwegian military intelligence . . .

Calling for Arms Talks with Russia, is US raising a White Flag?

March 22, 2018 — Raising a white flag is an internationally recognized sign of truce and request for negotiation, which may be what the US is doing in its official response to Putin's announcements on nuclear parity with the US . . . Vladimir Putin's presentation of Russia's new weapons systems during his address to the Federal Assembly on March 1 seems to have finally elicited the desired response from its target audience in Washington, DC . . . more than a decade ahead of US and other competition. He scored a direct hit in the Pentagon, where senior generals were left dumbfounded . . . It is scarcely credible that this president came to the conclusion about the need to halt the arms race on his own or that he dared raise such an inflammatory subject without having the firm backing of Pentagon specialists who evaluated rationally and expertly where we now stand in strategic security with the Russians. No one will say this, but it is inescapable . . . Full story: consortiumnews.com

Church of England to consider Baptism for Animals

April 1, 2018 — The Church of England is poised to consider the baptism of animals for the first time, it was announced today . . . Synod members will be asked to consider the implications of introducing a liturgy for pets 'in the light of an emerging consensus about the value of the environment and an increasing consciousness of animal sentience and awareness . . . After all, look at what I have in common with monkeys and chimpanzees—we're all primates,' the bishop joked, as an unamused press corps sat stony-faced in front of him. Asked how animals would be able to make baptismal vows, Bishop James said: 'It's amazing what animals can do . . . Full story: independent.ng

Comment: "Baptism is the answer of a conscience that is clear in God's Presence by the resurrection of Jesus Christ" (I Peter 3:21), "the last Adam," not the last "Rover." As Brother Branham prophesied, "the world is going insane".


The Friend of the Bridegroom, Part III

WORD Bride
Revelation 1–3 deal with the Church. Insensible to apostasy, Laodicea closed in 1963: the churches put Christ without the camp at His second Coming as Israel rejected and crucified Jesus on His first Coming (II Timothy 4:4; Hebrews 6:6; 13:12-13; Revelation 3:15-20). The wise and foolish virgins have come out from the Church to meet the Bridegroom (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:14-16; Revelation 18:4). Christ's end-time Bride was caught up in Revelation 4, and the churches are marching arm-in-arm to the tribulation. Revelation 4–19 is Israel as a nation, and Revelation 19–22 is Israel and the Church!

Revelation 19:1-10 depicts Christ's Wife of all Ages after the Wedding Supper rejoicing over the destruction of the great harlot, Papal Rome, and the annihilation of her (once) Protestant image, the united States of America. Christ's end-time Bride is pictured as a W_O_R_D Bride, introduced to Her Husband by "the Friend of the Bridegroom," revealing "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever" veiled behind a sinner saved by grace "discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart" in our Sodom generation (Hebrews 4:12; 13:8). Misguided followers actually mistook him to be Jesus (Luke 17:28-30; Revelation 19:9-10; 22:6-10).

Veiled behind created flesh, God discerned the thoughts and intents of Abraham and Sarah before fire destroyed Sodom, and said, "I will certainly visit you in the next twenty-eight days, and Sarah your wife shall conceive a son . . ." This sign also identified the Word veiled behind virgin-born flesh (Luke 7:39-40; John 1:42; 47-50). The antitype of Genesis 18 has manifest in our day with Billy Graham and Oral Roberts ministering to the churches in Sodom while Abraham and Sarah type Christ's end-time Bride called out and separated from those churches. And as God gave Abraham and Sarah new bodies in order to bear their promised son, He will renew and glorify the bodies of His end time Bride before we meet our promised Son.

Revelation 19:1-10, "After these things (Revelation 17:1 – 18:24) [the casting out of Satan, Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet, Seventh Vial, Third Woe, the destruction of Vatican City, hence also the united States which is uniting church and state, and the rebirth and martyrdom of Israel in "the time of Jacob's trouble"], I heard a great voice of much people in heaven [the Church and the Old Testament Saints], saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: for His judgments declare Him to be true and righteous: for He has judged the Great Whore, which corrupted the earth with her fornication, and has avenged the blood of His servants at her hand" (Deuteronomy 32:43; Revelation 6:10; 18:24).

"And a second time . . . they said, Alleluia. And her smoke will rise forever and ever . . . [That's the old prostitute church which Israel regards as Edom as it was organized by Edomite Jews (Isaiah 34:1-10; Revelation 2:9, 13; 3:9; 14:11)] . . . And the twenty-four elders [representing the Old and New Testament saints (Matthew 19:28)] and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God who is seated on the throne, saying, Amen; Hallelujah."

"And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all you His servants, and you that fear Him, both small and great"
(Luke 11:49-54; Revelation 18:20). This word "Alleluia" is used 24 times in the Book of Psalms, twice in the deuterocanonical books of the Judaeo-Catholic Bible, and four times in Revelation. It means "Praise the Lord." This Hebrew anthem of praise is sung chiefly at the feasts of Passover and of Tabernacles.

"And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude . . . (Here you are, Church. Christ's mediation and Redemption ended when the last saint predestinated to the Laodicean Church Age was baptized into Christ at Revelation 3:22. His end-time Bride and the 144,000 Israelites were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary because we were foreknown as receiving the fullness of the Word in the revelation of the Seven Seals or the Seven Trumpets delivered by our respective prophets; here she comes) . . . And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a mighty thundering, saying, Hallelujah: for the Lord God omnipotent reigns. (Hallelujah. Watch. The marriage [Supper] of the Lamb comes now. Here she comes)."

"Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb has come [to pass], and His wife has made herself ready [for the Wedding Supper]. (Here she comes, both Bride and Bridegroom.) And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of saints. And he [the seventh angel William Branham, "the Friend of the Bridegroom" who guides John, representing Christ's end-time Bride, throughout the Book of Revelation (Revelation 1:1; 10:7)] told me, Write, Blessed are they who are called unto the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. And he [Brother Branham] said unto me. These are the true sayings of God. And I fell down at his feet to worship him [Brother Branham]. And he said unto me, See you do it not: I am your fellowservant, [a prophet like yourself] and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."

[This scripture was fulfilled in real life when one of his confused followers, overcome by the parade of the Supernatural imagined that the Prophet actually was Christ. The fulfilment of this event is recounted in two sermons "Revelation Chapter Five," Parts I (MP3 audio) and II (pdf transcript)].

In Revelation 22:6-19, "He [the seventh angel and "Friend of the Bridegroom," Brother Branham] said to me [John, representing Christ's end-time Bride], These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel [Brother Branham] to show unto His servants the things which must shortly be done. Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keeps the sayings of the prophecy of this Book [because they are THUS SAITH THE LORD]. And I John [representing Christ's end-time Bride] saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel [Brother Branham] who showed me these things. Then he told me, See that you do it not: for I am your fellowservant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this Book: worship God."

"And he told me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this Book [or Revelation of the Seven Seals which Jesus opened on
March 8, 1963 and revealed through His Prophet from March 17 to 24, 1963]: for the time [of the first resurrection and translation] is at hand" [Revelation 10:7; 19:9]. The Church Ages are OVER, we have been in "the time of the end" for fifty-five years: even Daniel heard and saw Brother Branham revealing the Seven Thunders, which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:1-6). IT IS TIME TO GO HOME; is there but one more year? "He who is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he who is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to recompense every man according to what he has done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last."

"Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have right to the Tree of Life, and may enter in through the gates into the City. Outside are the dogs, and the sorcerers, and the whoremongers, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying."

"I Jesus have sent My angel [William Branham] to you with this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star."

"The Spirit and the Bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" And let the thirsty come; he who desires it, let him take freely the waters of Life."

"I warn everyone who hears the Words of the prophecy of this Book, [Brother Branham's THUS SAITH THE LORD]. If anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues that are described in this Book: and if anyone take away the Words of the prophecy of this Book, God will take away his part in the Tree of Life, and in the holy City as described in this Book".


Brother Branham was a Covenant Prophet, the last Word Prophet to us Gentiles. Seen and heard by Old Testament prophets, he delivered the Revelation of Jesus Christ to John: "THUS SAITH THE LORD" by His unfailing Word stands, and shall stand and be vindicated. There is one prophet-messenger to this age. On the basis of human behaviour alone, anyone knows that where there are many people there is even divided opinion on lesser points of a major doctrine which they all hold together. Who then will have the power of infallibility which is to be restored in this last age, for this last age is going to go back to manifesting the Pure Word Bride? That means we will have the Word once again as it was perfectly given, and perfectly understood in the days of Paul (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11; Jude 3). I will tell you who will have it. It will be a prophet as thoroughly vindicated, or even more thoroughly vindicated than was any prophet in all the ages from Enoch to this day, because this man will of necessity have the capstone prophetic ministry, and God will show him forth. He won't need to speak for himself, God will speak for him by the voice of the sign. Amen.

Throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ's end-time Bride. Revelation 1:1, "The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him [after His earthly sojourn], to show His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel [William Branham] to His servant John." We know this is so because the Bible was sealed from before creation to "the time of the end" when it was revealed to the seventh angel, Brother Branham, who revealed it to His Church from March 17 to 24, 1963 (Revelation 10:7).

Revelation 3:14, "To [Brother William Branham], the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the [Beginner and the] beginning of the [new] creation of God-[men and God-women] . . ." (II Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 6:15).

Revelation 10:7, "But in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel [William Branham], when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets".

Revelation 11:1-2, "And there was given me a reed like a rod [of the unbending THUS SAITH THE LORD]: and I was told, Rise and measure the temple (Gk.) 'naos' of God, and the altar [of incense], and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and they shall tread the holy city under foot forty two months."

William BranhamJerusalem's Temple was no more at the time of these visions and the third Temple will not be constructed and dedicated until the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, while the millennium Temple of Ezekiel 40-48 is not a building but an emblem of the regenerated Israel nation of 144,000 elect Israelites born in one day (Isaiah 66:8). The Outer Court will comprise the whole of the city which will be trodden under foot by the Gentiles for forty-two months (Revelation 11:2). Ezekiel 40:3-4; 44:1-5; 47:3; Daniel 10:5-6; Zechariah 2:1-2; Revelation 1:15; 10:1-5, 9-10, and 21:15, show it is Christ Who will pass the Absolute of God's staff of correction to John, Christ's end-time Bride, to measure or assess the elect Israelites. This measuring will call-out 144,000 elect Israelites by revelation of the THUS SAITH THE LORD of Israel's two prophets, a 'Moses' and an 'Elijah' unfolding the mystery of their feast of Trumpets (Zechariah 4:11-14; Matthew 17:1-9; 24:30-31; Revelation 11:3-12). The millennium temple will be formed from the 144,000 as the Body of Christ was built up of "ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousand thousands" of saints. The reconciliation on Calvary made the Holy of Holies one with the Holy Place (Matthew 27:51); because "it will be called a house of prayer for all nations"  (Isaiah 56:7) there are several Outer Courts.

Like Jesus Christ (Matthew 21:12; 26:55), Israel's two witnesses will prophesy, exercise their 'third pull' and be assassinated by the Judaeo-Roman beast; after lying unburied three and a half days they will resurrect and ascend to heaven from the Outer Court, or City of Jerusalem. However in the renewed heavens and earth New Jerusalem will be overshadowed by the horizontal rainbow of the Shekinah, and "the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the Temple or (Gk.) 'Naos' (Revelation 21:15-27), and the immeasurable Outer Court will be expanded to the domain of the nations of the 'saved' around the circumference of the earth non-elect whose kings will tithe of their increase to the City.

Revelation 14:9-11, "And the third angel [William Branham] followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascends up forever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receives the mark of his name".

Revelation 16:17-21, "The seventh angel [William Branham] poured out his vial into the air [the cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary and casting down of Satan, the prince of the power of the Air (Ephesians 2:2; Revelation 12:7-9), for the assumption of Christ's Bride for the Wedding Supper in the 'Sky Lounge']; and there came a great Voice out of the temple of heaven (Revelation 16:1), from the throne, saying, It is done" (Revelation 11:18-19; 15:8).

Revelation 17:1-3, "And there came one of the seven angels [Brother Branham] who had the Seven Vials, and talked with me [John who types Christ's end-time Bride], saying, Come here; I will show you the judgment of the Great [Judaeo-Roman Catholic] Whore that sits upon many waters [multitudes and nations]: with whom the kings of the earth have committed [spiritual] fornication [which is idolatry], and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away [in a vision] in the Spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of blasphemous names [Anglican, Methodist, Baptist, Pentecostal, etc.,] having seven heads and ten horns".

Revelation 18:1-3, "And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was Lightened with his glory (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:27-28; Revelation 10:7). And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of demons and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies".

Immediately after the mystery of the Great Whore and her denominational harlot daughters was made known in Revelation 17, God anointed the last angel, Brother Branham, to call His predestinated people "Come OUT of Babylon and be filled with the Spirit." The last call before Revelation 19:1, "After these things . . ." the Bride saints with the Bridegroom go to the Marriage Supper (I Corinthians 15:50-56; I Thessalonians 4:14-17; Revelation 19:1-9).

Revelation 18:21, "A mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all." This is the prophecy of the sinking of Los Angeles, California at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial (Revelation 8:5; 11:15, 19; 16:18). Brother Branham was this "mighty angel" who fulfilled this symbolism three days before Good Friday, 1964 when the Lord spoke to His Prophet who was hunting with friends in Sunset Mountain. And on Good Friday Alaska almost sank according to his prophecy under a 9.2 magnitude earthquake and tsunami.

After the close of the Gentile dispensation the Prophet said, "There will be a ministry that will show great wonders, Joel said so, but there'll be no time for redemption. It's all over. The Lamb has done took His Book, and His redeemed is over. As Jesus first preached and was rejected, and then went and . . . preached to them that were in prison, could not repent, no time for salvation, that same ministry will have to repeat again. What if that could be the Third Pull, to the Eternal lost . . . Oh, think, people could go right on preaching, thinking they're getting saved, believing they're doing right, believing their organizations are growing, sure, and not even a ray of hope . . ." (Souls that are in Prison Now, p. 31:206, 349).

Isaiah 61:2b, Brother Branham's ministry was "To proclaim the day of vengeance of our God" (foreshadowed in Isaiah 63:4; 66:14-16; Malachi 4:1-3; II Thessalonians 1:7-9; Revelation 11:18; 18:20; 19:2).

Psalm 137:7-9, "Remember, O Lord, the children of Edom [Jewry] in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Raze it, raze it, even to the foundation thereof. O daughter of Babylon [Vatican City State, her (once) Protestant US image and Washington DC], who are to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewards you as you have served Israel. Happy shall he be, that takes and dashes your little ones against the stones" as Brother Branham prophesied also for the invasion of the united States (Isaiah 13:16; Zechariah 14:2; Lamentations 4:21-22; Ezekiel 36:5). Along with the City of London these sovereign city states conspire to rule the world from Jerusalem.

Isaiah 34:2, 8, "The indignation of the Lord is upon all nations, and His fury upon all their armies: He has utterly destroyed them, He has delivered them to the slaughter . . . it is the day of the Lord's vengeance, and the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion".

Revelation 13:10, "Then they that have led into captivity shall go into captivity and they that have killed with the sword shall be killed with the sword".

Revelation 21:9-10, "One of the seven angels [William Branham] who had the Seven Vials full of the seven last plagues, came and talked with me [John, typing Christ's end-time Bride] saying, Come here, I will show you the Bride, the Lamb's Wife. And he carried me away [by vision] in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that Great City, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God".

When the wedding day finally arrived the Israelite bridegroom in festive garments and wearing a crown of gold would proceed with "the friend of the bridegroom" and their companions from an unknown place at an unknown time to the bride's father's house, and the bride, veiled and crowned would be carried to the bridegroom's house (Matthew 24:36; John 14:1-4; I Thessalonians 4:14-17). Dressed as king and queen performing the oldest lawful institution (Genesis 2:24) they type Christ and His Bride. The sixth purpose of Gabriel's visit to Daniel is to anoint the Most Holy Place (Daniel 9:24; Ezekiel 40 - 48) which is the millennium temple—144,000 elect Israelites in whose heart Christ and His Wife, their King and His Queen will live and abide forever. When received by faith the Israel nation, all 144,000, will be born in one day. Their glorious new birth will "restore the Kingdom to Israel" (Acts 1:6). nl1021.htm

The Friend of the Bridegroom, Part II


Bible Believers' Newsletter 1020

"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 company and welcome any questions, suggestions or corrections.

Android PhoneToday we continue our study, "The Friend of the Bridegroom." The theme of our current news articles is reminiscent of Jeremiah 51:7, "Babylon has been a golden cup in the Lord's hand, that made all the earth drunk: the nations have drunk of her wine; therefore the nations are mad." The fourth and terminal Gentile world empire and apostate Christendom is maddened by the golden cup of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. "Woe to them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe to them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!"

At the terminus of the Christian dispensation the blind are leading the blind into the "deep ditch" and "narrow pit" that is Rome. As it was in the days of Noah, the world is falling apart again.

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.

The End of International Law?

April 10, 2018 — Russian Minister for Foreign Affairs, Sergueï Lavrov: Over the last few years, Washington has been promoting the concept of 'unilateralism.' International Law and the United Nations are supposed to bow to the power of the united States.

This concept of political life is born of the History of the united States—the colonists who came to the Americas intended to live as they chose and make a fortune there. Each community developed its own laws and refused the intervention of a central government in local affairs. The President and the Federal Congress are charged with Defense and Foreign Affairs, but like the citizens themselves, they refused to accept an authority above their own.

Bill Clinton attacked Yugoslavia, blithely violating Internal Law. George Bush Jr. did the same by attacking Iraq, and Barack Obama by attacking Libya and Syria. As for Donald Trump, he has never hidden his distrust of supra-national rules. Making an allusion to the Cebrowski-Barnett doctrine, Sergueï Lavrov declared: "We have the clear impression that the United States seek to maintain a state of controlled chaos in this immense geopolitical area [the Near East], hoping to use it to justify the military presence of the USA".

The United Kingdom also seem to feel quite comfortable with breaking the Law. Last month, it accused Moscow in the 'Skripal affair,' without the slightest proof, and attempted to unite a majority of the General Assembly of the UN to exclude Russia from the Security Council. It would of course be easier for the Anglo-Saxons to unilaterally rewrite the Law without having to take notice of the opinions of their opponents. Moscow does not believe that London took this initiative. It considers that Washington is calling the shots . . . Full story: voltairenet.org

Comment: The Jewish regime of the apostate 'rogue' united States is "the image unto the beast" (Revelation 13:11-15).

'Let's start by destroying US Chemical Weapons': Russia responds to Trump's Plea to 'End Arms Race'

US mustard gas chemical weapons
April 11, 2018 — Maria Zakharova, spokesperson of the Russian Foreign Ministry, reminded President Trump that the US still hasn't got rid of its chemical weapons stockpile . . . After signing the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) in 1997, the US pledged to destroy its chemical weapons stockpile—the second biggest in the world—by 2012. After repeatedly missing the deadline, it now promises to do so by 2023. Russia, which once owned more chemical weapons than any other state, declared itself free of them in 2017.

US Dropped Plague-Infected Fleas on North Korea in March 1952

April 3, 2018 — There is a great deal of misunderstanding between the people of the United States and North Korea. This is largely due to the lack of information the average US citizen has about the suffering endured by Koreans during the Korean War, including war crimes committed by US forces.

While US forces carpet bombed North Korea, bombed irrigation dams, and threatened nuclear attack, their most controversial action was the use of bacteriological or biological weapons during the war . . . Only in February 2018 was a full documentary report on the US use of germ warfare during the Korean War, prepared and written by mostly West European scientists 66 years ago, released online in easy-to-read format . . . the dropping of plague-infected human fleas on a single small village . . . includes a US cover-up about Japan's use of biological weapons in World War II, and testimony from a Marine Corps colonel about how the US conceptualized its germ warfare campaign . . .

Comment: Jesus Christ also considers the Jew-controlled USA the "exceptional country" as disclosed in Revelation 13:11-18.

'Moderate Rebels' evacuated from Ghouta

US Proxies
April 7, 2018 — Take a good look at this photo and observe closely the two men on the far left, one carrying the kalachnikov and the other with the headgear. How do you tell a [US-UK-NATO recruited, trained, armed, paid and commanded] 'moderate rebel' (sic) of Ghouta from one of the ordinary residents of Ghouta? All you need to do is contrast the good health and clothes of the first lot with the emaciated bodies and rags of the second lot. The Syrian Arab Army has just discovered that Irbine, an area in the liberated Ghouta, holds stocks of foodstuffs and a hospital that is very well equipped. However, the UN and Humanitarian NGOs have given assurances that it was the 'regime' that was starving the population to death and denying it access to health care . . . Full story: voltairenet.org

Comment: These cuthroats represent one of many proxy armies of the Jewish-ruled united States, a truly 'exceptional' Christian nation that rejected its last opportunity for national repentence in 1956/7. "The last vision was wherein I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:3).

The Truth about the Chemical Weapons Attack in Syria

April 8, 2018 — The banksters of the City of London are obviously behind this black op . . . Resident Trump serving the Deep State in this conveniently planned war to defend US/UK/NATO funded, armed and paid ISIS, Daesh, al Qauda, al Nusrah, etc. . .

April 14, 2018 — (Sergei Lavrov’s response to the Salisbury incident: There is regress. We are not seeing any progress. We have not yet received any official inquiry from London on the poisoning of Skripal and his daughter. In turn, we officially notified the Brits that we will be ready to answer their inquiry if they formulate it on the basis of their own commitments under the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) that requires that an official inquiry is sent in such cases to the competent bodies of the country that is suspected of the crime that has been committed. Such an inquiry has not been sent.

Moreover, a spokesman of the United Kingdom in the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons started asking our representative why we are bringing the Chemical Weapons Convention into this conversation . . .

April 8, 2018 — His master's voice (or how an obedient dog goes to war). The pretext used in this trumpeted false flag was announced by Nikki Haley at the UNSC on March 12th, almost one month ago! . . . Trump probably did not realize that he was told to threaten only Syria and not Russia and Iran. Although, who knows, maybe the rabidly psychopathic Neocons who now run the White House actually did tell him to bark up Russia and Iran too . . . tonight, yet again, we are headed for war, a war in which Israel will use the USA as its "attack pit-bull" in pursuit of its narrow regional interests (topple Assad, trigger a war with Iran) and thereby put all of mankind at risk.

As Israel Shahak put it so brilliantly: this is a case of "think locally, act globally." And the once proud West now silently obeys his Master's voice.

April 8, 2018 — Opinions outside China range from being nonplussed, to claiming it is the most important news in modern financial history, but you would have to search far and wide in Eurangloland (NATO, EU, Israel, Australia and New Zealand) and its heavily censored and suppressed media, to see for yourself . . . Hitler called it the Big Lie. Eurangloland learned from a master [whom] Moses commanded the Israelites to "slay utterly," and [whom] Jesus Christ identified as Cain's race of liars who are absent the Book of Life (Deuteronomy 7:2; John 8:44). The Petro-yuan is the newest weapon for the China-Russia-Iran anti-USD Alliance.

The attack Israel is reported to have carried out in Syria, during the early hours of Monday morning, badly aggravated tensions on the northern front. Israel won't say it is indeed behind the overnight strike in Syria, but admitted in the past of attacking the T-4 air base . . . (haaretz.com).

Trinity of Globalist ControlComment: The end of the Christian dispensation is imminent, signified by unprecedented tectonic activity prophesied by Isaiah, Ezekiel, Joel, Zechariah, Jesus Christ, Paul and William Branham. The belligerent US is preparing war on Russia, but with faux Israel, the united States, Australia's east coast and New Zealand devastated and NATO in a shambles, America's "war hawks" won't have a leg to stand on. Russia will take the war to mainland USA with altruistic common sense and peaceful intent. After Christ's Bride of all ages is resurrected and translated Satan will be cast down incarnate in the Pope who will assemble a federation of world religions, and in covenant with Jewry refinance the US dollar and restore peace.

The sovereign City States of the Vatican, London and Washington are desperate to ignite the 'hot stage' of the ongoing World War III before matters escape their control. While Second Passover this year will be Saturday, April 28 – 29 and "the Day of Pentecost will be fully come" Sunday, May 20, I expect thirteen months "preaching to the total lost," intensification of 'the squeeze,' and a hastening toward depression worse than the Great Depression unleashed by the unprecedented concussion of nature "shaking not the earth only but also heaven," collapsing the US dollar and the global economy overnight.

Dr. Chris Busby on the Skripal Russia Poisoning

April 6, 2018 — Dr. Busby worked for several years at the famous Wellcome Research laboratories in Beckenham, London as a Senior Scientist in the Department of Physical Chemistry. His job, at the basic level, was to help determine the structure and origin of pharmaceutical compounds. He is an expert in this area. He also carried out similar work at Queen Mary College London for his first PhD. and synthesised complex organic chemicals. From that, he relates that the synthesis of a specific small organic chemical like the supposed Novichoks is not very difficult. Most synthetic organic chemists could knock up small quantities of the 234 compound, given the structure. There is no way that the compound that was detected in the Skripal attack could be traced to a Russian laboratory (or any laboratory) by any lab unless the lab already had a sample known to come from the Russian laboratory (or the source laboratory) . . .

Coming Financial Crisis will be much worse than Great Depression – Investor Peter Schiff

April 7, 2018 — "The bad news is, we are going to live through another Great Depression and it's going to be very different . . . in many ways, much much worse than what people had to endure during the Great Depression," Schiff said, as quoted by ZeroHedge. "This is going to be a dollar crisis."

According to Schiff, the US Federal Reserve is propping up the markets to urge people to spend more, but in fact, the wealth created is a bubble. "It's actually doing damage. If you create a bunch of phony wealth, and people end up spending money that they otherwise would have saved, you are undermining economic growth," he said. In January, Schiff predicted that "the economy is going to blow up like a bomb" because of the Federal Reserve policy, but President Donald Trump will be to blame.

"Unfortunately, that's what Trump has inherited from Obama. But it's not even really just Obama, it's the Federal Reserve. It's the monetary policy that has been passed like a baton from Clinton to Bush to Obama and now to Trump. And we're near the end of the game and unfortunately, Trump's gonna be the fall guy. This thing is all gonna collapse while he's president," Schiff said. The tax cuts will give the Democratic Party a reason to blame the collapse all on Trump and the Republicans, the investor added.

Comment: Precisely what Brother Branham prophesied in 1933: "When God sends forth a Message and tells the people, and they don't receive it, then He withdraws His servant and sends His plagues: famine, death, spiritually speaking, physically also. You watch for a depression, brother. You think you've seen something; you just wait after while. You haven't seen nothing" (Jezebel Religion, p. 22:100).

Dept. Homeland Security compiling Database of Journalists & 'Media Influencers'

thought police
April 6, 2018 — The details of the attached Request for Information [Media Monitoring Services], however, outline a plan to gather and monitor the public activities of media professionals and influencers and are enough to cause nightmares of constitutional proportions, particularly as the freedom of the press is under attack worldwide. And "attack" is not hyperbolic.

As part of its "media monitoring," the DHS seeks to track more than 290,000 global news sources as well as social media in over 100 languages . . . for instant translation into English. The successful contracting company will have "24/7 access to a password protected, media influencer database, including journalists, editors, correspondents, social media influencers, bloggers etc." in order to "identify any and all media coverage related to the Department of Homeland Security or a particular event."

"Any and all media coverage," as you might imagine, is quite broad and includes "online, print, broadcast, cable, radio, trade and industry publications, local sources, national/international outlets, traditional news sources, and social media."

The database will be browsable by "location, beat and type of influencer," and for each influencer, the chosen contractor should "present contact details and any other information that could be relevant, including publications this influencer writes for, and an overview of the previous coverage published by the media influencer." One aspect of the media coverage to be gathered is its "sentiment" . . .

Comment: 'The squeeze' tightens.

US Visa Applicants to be asked for Social Media History: State Department

March 30, 2018 — In a broad expansion of the information gathered from applicants for US visas, the federal government is proposing to collect social media identities from nearly everyone who seeks entry into the United States, according to a State Department filing on Friday. The proposal, if approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), would require most immigrant and non-immigrant visa applicants to list all social media identities they have used in the past five years. The information will be used to vet and identify them, according to the proposals, which would affect about 14.7 million people annually . . . Full story: reuters.com

Comment: Certainly the united States and Nigeria have been vetting applicants for visas via the CIA's Google and FaceBook since at least 2015. This is an element of 'the squeeze'.

Will America accept Defeat or Challenge Russian Bear & Chinese Dragon

March 28, 2018 — Russia introduced China to Syria during the war when the Chinese navy arrived in the Mediterranean and reached the shores of Tartous and Lattakia to send a message to America and its allies that the monolithic dominance of the world was over.

There are thousands of Chinese jihadists who fought with ISIS and al-Qaeda and Beijing was concerned, willing to see all these killed in Syria. Cooperation between the Chinese and the Syrian intelligence services was established. Damascus has a unique and a very rich bank of information about foreign fighters many countries in the world would like to have access . . . Washington is . . . refusing to give up on the crown of world domination . . . ready to fight against the "axis opposing the US" using other means outside Syria . . . expelling Russian diplomats and imposing sanctions on China and Iran . . . defeat in Syria is obviously very painful . . . the world no longer believes in the US's military muscles . . . two potential countries, less arrogant and willing to create alliances rather than bullying weaker countries: Russia and China . . . gathering more allies against the US axis . . .

Putin did not declare war on America but extended his hand and tried to build friendship . . . But Washington saw in Moscow the potentiality to recover in a couple of decades and worked on slowing down the process or interrupting it . . . the US started to pull to its side many countries of the ex-Soviet Union which have declared independence and include these in NATO and in the European Union surrounding Russia.

China, which includes cheap labour and can clone any commercial or military technology, like Russia has perceived America's fear of its rapid economic development and wealth. Thus, the Chinese-Russian rapprochement was mainly created by the aggressive US policy towards the two countries . . . because the American concentrate exclusively on military muscle when dealing with the World . . . aware of their naval superiority and know that China needs the sea for its commerce and for its supply of energy.

China started to protect itself by setting up the Eurasian political and economic Shanghai Cooperation Organisation in June 2001 with the goal also to focus on economic initiatives, increase military and counter terrorism cooperation with intelligence sharing. This Cooperation includes about half of the World's total population and the states (including five nuclear states) of China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Iran, India and Pakistan—and rejected Washington's and Tokyo's request to be observers only . . .

'Big Brother' in India requires Fingerprint Scans for Food, Phones & Finances

April 7, 2018 — India has collected biometric data on most of its 1.3 billion residents, to be used in a nationwide identity system called Aadhaar, meaning "foundation" . . . government has made registration mandatory for hundreds of public services and many private ones, from taking school exams to opening bank accounts.

The Friend of the Bridegroom, Part II

Christ's W_O_R_D Bride
The Bridegroom chose a loyal friend to prepare His earthly Bride for their wedding. He would accompany her throughout the betrothal and help her to "make herself ready," clothed in the Word for her day (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7; Revelation 19:7). He acts as an intermediary, the confidant of both in the interest of the Bridegroom. He was charged with the preliminaries of the marriage, he arranged the contract, acted for the Bridegroom during the betrothal, arranged for and presided at the festivities of the wedding itself. It was a position of honour relative to that of the Bridegroom Himself, given to his chief friend who then rejoiced in His joy.

John the Baptist was "the friend of the Bridegroom" who introduced Jesus Messiah to Israel. His ministry was rejected and the Messiah was crucified by the wicked hands of those He came to redeem. Thereafter He ceased dealing with the Israel nation, and from the Day of Pentecost He began "to take out a people for His Name from Adam's race." Nevertheless, for fifteen hundred years the Church was composed of mostly Israelite converts. Throughout the Church Ages God sent seven earthly angels whose Messages baptized the elect of each Age into their position in the Body. These seven men fulfilled the duties of "the friend of the Bridegroom" during the dispensations in which the Book was sealed for Christ is only marrying a virgin to the W_O_R_D.

Gentile numbers grew in the Thyatira Church Age, becoming the majority in Sardis; the Light increased throughout the Reformation until Laodicea ended in apostasy in 1963, and knows it not fifty-five years later (Romans 11:32; II Timothy 3:1 – 4:4; Revelation 3:17-20).

The mystery of the trinity is the central doctrine of Judaeo-Roman Catholicism upon which all the other teachings of that church are based (Handbook for Today's Catholic, p. 16). If the Judaeo-Roman church was to prevail in enforcing her doctrines on Christendom, all opposition to the Trinity doctrine must be eliminated. Among the principal obstructions to Rome's political ascendancy—three Germanic tribes that adhered to Arianism were "plucked up"—the Heruli (AD493), the Vandals (AD534) and the Ostrogoths (AD538) for rejecting the "Little Horn" or Pope by refusing to take Rome's "mark of the beast," Trinitarianism (Daniel 7:8, 20, 24; Revelation 17:11-18). Like Trinitarianism, Arianism is heretical, and although it believes in only one God it denies the Deity of Jesus Messiah (John 3:36; Newsletter 687).

Prior to their destruction, Emperor Justinian issued a decree in AD533 appointing the Bishop of Rome head over all Christian churches in both the Eastern and Western divisions of the Empire. But this edict could not be enforced until the Arian Ostrogoths, who were in control of Rome, were "plucked up." Jesus prophesied that Rome and her apostate (once) Protestant daughters will again force the mark of the beast "and that no one might buy or sell, save he that had the mark of the beast, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name" (Revelation 13:15-18).

Estimates vary from 50 to 150 millions killed by the Roman Catholic Church. Who with any knowledge of the persecutions of the Waldenses, the ravages of the Duke of Alva, the fires of Smithfield; the tortures of Goa, the crusades, the massacres, and the inquisitions could doubt that Papal Rome "made war with the saints and prevailed against them?" I urge you to read Foxes' Book of Martyrs which contains much information concerning the persecutions of Rome in its pursuit of absolute mind control. As we noted in Newsletter 1019 until the Sardis Church Age, the congregations were nearly all Israelite or "them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan." So when we apply these statistics to Rome, we should recognize from the Hegelian dialectic of the First Nicaea Council that the Judaeo-Catholic church was a Jewish 'front' designed to destroy the faith.

II Timothy 3:1, "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come" (II Peter 3:3; Isaiah 2 – 4). "The last days" refers to the end of the Messianic age of redemption and completion and the personal (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming of the Lord to His Bride (Matthew 24:27, 37, 39; I Corinthians 15:23; I Thessalonians 4:16); then after our translation, to the 144,000 elect Israelites. I Timothy 4:1 foretold in what manner the falling away from the faith would reveal itself through the Church Ages, he now announces the outward immorality which would be coupled with this falling away within the outward visible form of apostate Christianity and the church, which are no more than the world with God's Name on it. This once future prophecy is now in full force in the world church system which is "materially rich and in need of nothing, but spiritually bankrupt of faith, wretched and pitiable, blind to God's Word, naked of the Blood, and knows it not" (Revelation 3:17-20).

"For men shall be lovers of 'I, me, and myself,' covetous, noisy self-asserters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, for whom nothing is holy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the miraculous authority of God's Word: turn away from such people."

"For of this sort are those who work their way into households and captivate silly women burdened with sins and swayed by diverse impulses, ever learning, and never able to come to the revelation of the Truth—Christ the Word. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the revelation and "say what the tapes say": men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men [when we have departed], as theirs also was . . . and [in the time of the squeeze] all who live godly will become a hunted and persecuted little group . . . But evil men and imposters will wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived."

"You, however, must continue in what you have learned and proven in God's unchanging Word, knowing from whom you have learned it; and that from a child you have known the holy scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is inspired by God, and profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work."


II Timothy 4:1-5 brings us to Laodicea: "I charge you in the Presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the Message; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but to satisfy their own desires they will gather up teachers that will tickle their ears; and they shall turn from listening to the truth, and be turned unto fables. But keep your head, watch in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of your ministry."

This compound prophecy was God's command to His Prophet, William Branham, the Elijah of Malachi 4:5, 6b and Matthew 17:11, the seventh angel of Revelation 10:7 and "friend of the Bridegroom." Early one morning the Lord told him to climb up into Sabino Canyon. Praying with outstretched arms, a sword struck his hand; it had a pearl handle (wisdom) with a guard of gold (deity); the blade shone like silver (redemption) and it was feather-edge sharp (the Word Hebrews 4:12). And he thought, "Isn't that the prettiest thing?" Just fits my hand. Then a Voice shook down through there that rocked the rocks, said, "It's the Sword of the King." Then he came out of the vision. Later, the Angel of the Lord revealed it was the Word in the hand. It's for your ministry: the Seven Seals will be opened and "the mystery of God will be finished."

His evangelism spearheaded the post World War II healing revival around the world, revealing "Jesus Christ the same yesterday and today and forever," discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:13; 13:8; Luke 17:28-30), casting out demons, restoring sight to the blind, making cripples whole and raising the dead. Like Jesus' early ministry its purpose was to establish a following of believers who would attend his latter meetings and witness His prophetic Message that would reveal the mysteries of the Seven Thunders in Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals. It is these divinely revealed 'mystery truths' that literally turn the hearts of the children to the Pentecostal fathers.

Pillar of CloudOn March 8, 1963 the Prophet was on Sunset Mountain when there was a blast of seven thunders and he was caught up in the Pillar of Cloud formed by the theophanies of the angels to the Seven Church Ages, he being the seventh. Christ fulfilled Revelation 4; 5; 10:1-6, and I Thessalonians 4:13-16a. The Laodicean Church Age and Christ's mediation for ignorance of the fullness of the Word were fulfilled (I Corinthians 13:10). Redemption was over and he was told to return to Jeffersonville where the Lord would unfold The Revelation of the Seven Seals meaning we are in "the time of the end" (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:6). Since "The mystery of God is finished," we are "no longer children, tossed to and fro, and carried by every denominational wind, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive." THUS SAITH THE LORD makes the folly of seducing clergy spirits manifest and brings us to maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.

Body of Christ during the Church AgesJohn 5:26-29, "For as the Father has Life in Himself; so has He granted the Son to have Life in Himself and has given Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of man, King of kings and Judge." It is later than you think or dare imagine: "Awake you sleepyhead, arise from the dead and Christ shall give you Light (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:27-28). See that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil".

Christians are "written epistles" of "the present Truth" . . . what Jesus is doing now (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7) which is the Message of the angel ordained to your day; nothing else can quicken your soul to eternal Life and baptize you into the Body of Christ. This diagram shows that there are nine unique baptisms with the Holy Ghost, and that the revelations are cumulative from dispensation to dispensation, so are the blessings and condemnations. What baptized one into the Body of Christ in, say the Sardis Church Age, cannot bring new birth to the elect of a subsequent dispensation.

When the last saint predestinated to the Laodicean Church Age was born-again there was a breach between the Church Ages of PART-Word and the revelation of Jesus Christ, the mystery of God revealed. Since the revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963 it is IMPOSSIBLE for anyone to be baptized into Christ by the PART-Word Messages to the Seven Church Ages (I Corinthians 13:10).

Brother Branham was "the friend of the Bridegroom" who restored the apostolic faith, finished the mystery of God, defined the duties of Christ's earthly end-time Bride by expounding "Conduct, Order and Doctrine in the Church," and introduced her heavenly Bridegroom. "The marriage of the Lamb has come to pass and His Wife has made herself ready" for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in His Father's house (John 14:1-3). The heavenly antitype of the traditional seven-day Israelite wedding feast will occupy the seven prophetic years of Daniel's Seventieth Week wherein a prophet with the anointing that endued Moses will bring the Law, statutes and judgments to the remembrance of 144,000 elect Israelites as prophesied in Malachi 4:5. God will only receive His Word (Exodus 20:18-19; Deuteronomy 4:1-13; 18:15-22).

The Law was read at the feast of Tabernacles in the sabbatical year: Deuteronomy 31:10-13, "Moses commanded Israel, saying, At the end of every seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of Tabernacles, when all Israel is come to appear before the Lord your God in the place which He shall choose, you shall read this Law before all Israel in their hearing. Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and the (Heb.) 'Ger' stranger that is within your gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the Lord your God, and observe to do all the Words of this Law: and that their children, which have not known anything, may hear, and learn to fear the Lord your God, as long as you live in the Land which you are about to cross Jordan to possess".

The Old Testament presents a shadow whereby we can foresee, recognize and vindicate good things to come in the New Testament. The second delivery of the Law in Deuteronomy types Brother Branham's second delivery or restoration of the Paul's Gospel to the Bride Age saints (Malachi 4:6b; Matthew 17:11; Jude 3) with strict orders not to walk in the precepts of the denominational fathers or be contaminated with their idols—creed and traditions that make the Word of God of none effect (Matthew 15:9; Galatians 1:8-9). God spoke mouth to mouth with Moses, Jesus Christ and Brother Branham but since Exodus 20:18-19 He will no longer speak to the Israel nation mouth to mouth. The 144,000 Israelites will receive a second prophet anointed with the Spirit that endued Elijah, who, with their 'Moses,' will guide them through the prophecy of Leviticus 26:14-46 to reconcile God's chastisement of the nation against 2,500 years of history and plant the Seed of truth that will blossom to the revelation of Jesus Christ and new birth in one day in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Isaiah 66:8; Zechariah 12:9 – 13:9).

In Genesis 45, Joseph, a type of Christ, hid his Gentile wife and their two children in the palace before He revealed himself to his brethren. They signify the Pentecostal and Capstone Bride, the "two wave loaves" of Leviticus 23:17. "Jesus is Alpha and Omega, the Word at the beginning and the Word at the end," not the PART-Word that required mediation in-between. We will be in the Palace when Jesus makes Himself known to his brothers. His blood brother Benjamin born during his absence in Egypt types the 144,000 elect Israelites who were born during Christ's absence with us Gentiles.

Redemption was over when the last Laodicean Age saint was baptized into Christ. His end-time Bride is already united, for we were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary: we go to the Wedding Supper, not to the marriage. We are predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word through the revelation of the Seven Seals (Revelation 10:7). And we do have today, by God's help, the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication. "Then that which is in part is done away with. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child; but when I become a man, I put away childish things" (COD, 1,005:57). Amen! We do not need mediation for ignorance.

Throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ's end-time Bride. Revelation 1:1, "The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him, to show His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel [William Branham] to His servant John." We know this is so because the Bible was sealed from before creation to "the time of the end" when it was revealed to the seventh angel, Brother Branham, who revealed it to His Church from March 17–24, 1963 (Revelation 10:7).

"Caught up in the Spirit into the Lord's Day, which is yet future, John heard a great Voice behind him [in man's day]" (Revelation 1:10). With both feet planted firmly on Patmos Island from AD95-96 John saw, heard and spoke with Brother Branham as he unfolded the mysteries from 1963–1965 and led John through the Revelations as Christ opened the Seals. John signified the revelation in Old Testament symbols. As the revelation was disclosed to Brother Branham after the end of Laodicea we know that these mysteries are exclusively for Christ's end-time Bride; none else can receive them. When you recognize the mysteries, that is God calling your name from the Lamb's Book of Life.

Revelation 4:1-2, "After the Laodicean Church Age ended (Revelation 3:22), "I . . . . (insert your name as a member of Christ's end-time Bride) . . . . saw and beheld a door still open in heaven; and the first voice which I heard as a trumpet talking with me (Revelation 1:10) said, "Come up here, and I will show you things that must be after [the Church Ages]. And immediately I was in the Spirit: and beheld a throne was set in heaven, and One sat on the Throne." At this point every member foreknown in Christ's end-time Bride—even those not yet conceived—were present in theophany when Jesus claimed the Book of Redemption and opened the Seals (Revelation 5:11-14).

The threefold PROCESS of the 'rapture' began in 1963 (I Thessalonians 4:16). God has been calling the wise and foolish virgins OUT from the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church and her denominational and independent daughter churches for fifty-five years (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:4). The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form and as Moses stood in the breach when Israel broke her blood Covenant and entered into idolatry and fornication (Exodus 32), Brother Branham stood in the gap when the Church Ages were fulfilled and introduced us to Christ the Archangel and fullness of the Word by the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6. "Behold the Bridegroom; come out to Meet Him!" The Pentecostals and denominations impersonating previous Moves of the Spirit had put Christ out and rejected His second Coming precisely as the Israelite denominations had rejected His first Coming (Romans 11:32; Hebrews 6:6; Revelation 3:20). The Prophet's Message was the "Shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 and Revelation 18:4, "Come out of Babylon and be filled with the Spirit." Today the only way one can cross the chasm from death to eternal Life, glorification and translation without death is by becoming a "written epistle" of his end-time Message which is Christ, the fullness of the Word.

The "Voice of the Archangel" is Christ in the heart of His Bride, whispering His amours by placing the Prophet's Message from Genesis to Revelation to bring her to maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:50-52).

The Capstone was never placed on the Great Pyramid because it represents Jesus Christ, who said, "Have you never read in the scriptures, The very stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner: this was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes" (Matthew 21:42; Psalm 118:22; I Peter 2:7). The Capstone is the fullness of the Word, "a living stone rejected by the Gentile denominations, but chosen of God, and precious in His sight, you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house and holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ."

Jesus ChristChrist's end-time Bride is forming the Capstone and will manifest that we are the Sons of God. In 1964 Brother Branham said, "I fell into a trance. And, when I did, there was Somebody with me. I didn't see the Person. It was just a Voice. And as I looked this way, He said, "The Bride will come in view for preview."

And I looked, coming to me, and I seen the most prettiest bunch of clean-dressed women I ever seen in my life. But each one of them, looked like, was dressed different. They all had long hair. And they were longer sleeves and skirts, and so forth. Young women, they looked kind of, I'd say, about maybe twenty . . .

But, when this Bride, She was looking right at the One was talking to me, and I, standing together. Her eyes, She was the cleanest, sweetest-looking people I ever seen in my life. Look like it could have been a dozen, or more . . . I don't know how many was abreast, but there just in a group of them. And She passed by, sweetly, with a air. And Her eyes up, watching, as She passed by. Oh, She was beautiful! I looked at Her, and as She passed by. He said, "That's the Bride."

"Now we will review the churches."
And they come. I noticed them coming up. And when they come up, each one, look like, got worse. I never seen such a filthy bunch in my life.

And when He said, "Next," I heard a noise. And It said, "Next," said, "here comes the American group."

Now, I am an American, but this made me sick. I am not eloquent enough, in a mixed audience, to say what was taking place. I . . . And you'll have to read between the lines. But when the women were coming, the leader of them was a witch. She had a great long nose and a great big mouth. And all of them was dressed with some kind of lower clothes down here; but the top just had a strap, that, just a little, about a half-inch strap that moved up and went around them like this. And each women had something on a order . . .

Many of you, years ago, used to remember when we used to cut that paper, you know, newspaper, and make an old fly-bush? How many remembers it? You know. Why, I think they use it in carnivals, you know. Hanging down like that, fringed paper, lace paper.

They had something holding below them, like this, holding below them. All this part was exposed.

And each one had hair cut up real short, and frizzy-looking things all over it like that, real short-cut hair; and full of makeup. Absolutely nothing but looked like street prostitutes (I Corinthians 11:16).

And they were walking with this paper, and, the vulgarity! Now, the paper was what was holding in front of them. But when they passed the review stand, in the back of them . . . And to see the way they were going on, in their foremost and their back part, and how they were acting!

I said, "Is that the Church?"

And there she went. And they were singing this here twist-and-roll songs, you know, or ever what you call, going down, singing that and going by.

I said, "Is that the Church?" And I was standing there, and in my heart I was crying.

And, this witch, to my notion it's nothing else in the world but she is that World Council of Churches, leading them right straight down the road where she was going (Revelation 21:8). They went off to the left, and disappeared in chaos; still beating this music and making real funny sounds, and shaking their bodies, one side and then the other side. And then, like that, carrying on like that, walking.

And I just started to bow my head, and He said, "Wait, the Bride must come again."

And I looked, and here they come again. And they passed by, a sweet-looking little ladies. They was all looking right at me, as they passed by. And I noticed each one was dressed different. And one in the back had kind of long hair hanging down, and had it rolled around like this; might have been German or something like that. And I watched them.


And then as they started leaving, two or three of them, in the back, kinda get out of step, and I was going to holler at them. And they was trying to get back in step again. And I seen them, just the vision just fade out and change, from me . . .

Did you notice? The Bride come in view twice; the first Seed and the second Seed, both of them exactly the same One. And the reason they were dressed in different parts, She'll come from all nations, it'll make up the Bride. Each one had long hair, and no makeup, and real pretty girls. And they were watching me. That represented the Bride coming out of all nations. See? She, each one represented a nation, as they marched perfectly in line with the Word. See?

And, then, [as the Friend of the Bridegroom] I have to watch Her. She'll get out of step with that Word if I don't watch, when She is passing by, if She gets by. Maybe it'll be my time, when I'm over, see, when I'm finished, or whatever it is.

What? They was getting back. Trying their best, and was getting back, just get in line; 'cause, they was looking out somewhere else, watching about that church that just went out into chaos. The front ones, never. The back ones, just two or three of them, was kind of stepped out a little bit to the right-hand side, and looked like was trying to get back in line as they went by. They was just past me, oh, far as here to the wall, past me. And I was standing there. And then I just seen it all move out and leave.

But, you notice, the church only came into view once, each nation, the church. But the Bride church come in twice. See, see what it was? The Seed fell in the ground at Nicaea. That was the original Seed. And She's come through the process of these denominations, which only comes in existence once. But the Bride returns back again in the last days. "I will restore." See, the Masterpiece is brought up. That's the reason She was in view, reviewed, the second time. She was reviewed the first time, then she was reviewed the second time. And She was perfectly, the second time, like She was the first time. O God, have mercy! Hurry, hurry, hurry, Life, get in the Grain, right quick! Uh-huh.

All others never appeared no more. They went out, never to come back again. But the Bride came back, 'cause She was Alpha and Omega. God, the great Sculptor, has made Him a Masterpiece, for It is a piece of His first Masterpiece. Like He made in the Garden of Eden, and took a piece from, and made another piece and that was marred and fell, now He's been all this time building it up again. And He brought forth this Masterpiece . . . That part that was smitten, was in order to bring back again that Masterpiece, again.

So, the Masterpiece and the Son of God, the Masterpiece and the Bride, and It's a piece of Him, which must be the fulfilling of the Word. The Word has been fulfilled, and we're ready for the Coming of the Lord" (The Masterpiece, p. 33:187-199).

This vision showed the fruit of John the Baptist "the friend of the Bridegroom" who introduced Messiah to Israel. Three and a half years after John's death his ministry "turned the heart of his former disciples, the apostolic fathers to the children of God, the primitive Church, sons and daughters, not servants like the Israel nation" (Malachi 4:5, 6a). And we see the fruit of Brother Branham, "the friend of the Bridegroom" whose ministry "turned the heart of the children or Capstone Bride back to the faith of their apostolic fathers" (Malachi 4:5, 6b). As he said, "Maybe it'll be my time, when I'm over, see, when I'm finished, or whatever it is." In other words He is saying this is the time of the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trump as they march up into the sky, already called and chosen—sealed away. There won't be one extra one!

Speaking of the Seventh Trump in I Thessalonians 4:16-18 Brother Branham called this "the sign of time" of Matthew 24:3b, c, 30-36, which will be marked by the sinking of Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300 - 400 mile segment of earth the land area of the State of Queensland, Australia, the eruption of the Pacific Ring of Fire, the subsidence of mountains and islands, and tsunamis sweeping the oceans as Jesus foretold (Isaiah 13:6-13; Haggai 2:6-7, 21-22; Luke 21:25; Hebrews 12:26-29; II Peter 3:10-12; Revelation 6:12-17; 16:18-21; 18:21-24)

The last time Brother Branham ministered in Los Angeles, California, He said: "Women, I want you to look in the mirror, and look what God requires a woman to do. And see in God's mirror, not in your church mirror now, in God's mirror; and see if you could qualify, in your life, the spiritual Bride of Jesus Christ" (Deuteronomy 22:5; I Timothy 2:9-15; I Peter 3:1-6, etc).

"Ministers, think the same. Do you cut corners here, to save somebody's feelings over yonder and they'll put you out of the church? If you are feeling that way, my dear brother, let me warn you, in the Name of Jesus Christ, flee from that right now."

"And, lady, if you can't measure up to the qualification of a Christian, not as a nominal Christian; but in your heart, and your life is patterned exactly like God's marriage certificate here says it has to be."

"And, church member, if your church isn't like that, can measure up to God's qualification of His Word, get out of it and get into Christ."

"That is solemn warning. We don't know what time, and you don't know what time, that this city one day is going to be laying out here in the bottom of this ocean."

"Oh, Capernaum," said Jesus, "thou who exalted into heaven, will be brought down into hell. For, if the mighty works had been done in Sodom and Gomorrah, it'd have been standing to this day." And Sodom, Gomorrah lays in the bottom of the Dead Sea. And Capernaum is in the bottom of the sea."

"Thou city, who claims to be the city of the Angels, who has exalted yourself into heaven, and sent all the dirty, filthy things of fashions and things, till even the foreign countries come here to pick up our filth and send it away, to your fine churches and steeples, and so forth, the way you do. Remember, one day you'll be laying in the bottom of the sea, your great honeycomb under you right now. The wrath of God is belching right beneath you. How much longer He will hold this sandbar hanging out over that? When, that ocean out yonder, a mile deep, will slide in there, plumb back to the Salton Sea. It'll be worse than the last day of Pompeii. Repent, Los Angeles."

"Repent, the rest of you, and turn to God. The hour of His wrath is upon the earth. Flee while there's time to flee, and come into Christ" (Choosing a Bride, p. 34:225-232). nl1020.htm
