Be Certain of God

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our prayer-answering Lord Jesus Christ.

World-renowned theoretical physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking had this to say about knowledge, "The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge." I would add, "and the presumption of truth". This illusion of knowledge and disdain for truth is the quicksand upon which the Establishment's brave new world is a-building.

Most people have an illusion of history, science and faith but no absolute, having been indoctrinated as to what they may think without fear of ridicule, ostracism, legal action and even imprisonment. Such was the plight of Jeremiah, Zechariah, Jesus Christ, Paul and Martin Luther for expressing politically incorrect yet essential truths. "Political correctness" is a top-down Bolshevik device employed to disempower all below the apex.

God has good things planned for His Kingdom which stands upon faith - a clear understanding of His unchanging Word - and prayer. Lucifer has "whatever it takes" planned for his kingdom, whose strength is deceit and politics. There is liberty in Christ, who said: "You shall know the truth, and the truth will make you free." However truth "offends, insults and humiliates" Lucifer, the god of this evil age who rules the executive, parliament and judiciary of every nation, hence "truth" has been outlawed as "hate".

A nationwide competition for law students to draft anti-hate legislation for minority groups was won by Joseph Ribakoff. His paper suggests that not only should state-agencies monitor and restrict free speech in general, but they should also censor all films that criticize identifiable groups. Furthermore, even if the person making the statement can justify it, for example Christians criticizing homosexuality because the Bible expressly forbids it, Ribakoff asserts that the truth is to be no defence in court.

The only proof a court will need in order to secure a conviction of "hate speech" is that something has been said, and a minority group or member of such group has felt "emotionally damaged" as a result of such criticism. Under these proposals which the ADL will have forced into law all over the world, Jesus Christ would have been arrested as a hate criminal.

Whither democracy and freedom? Historians ignore the military blueprint for three world wars and three major revolutions uncovered in 1871; seldom expose the Fascist dictator F.D. Roosevelt, who confessed, "If something happens in politics, you can bet it was planned that way." Men like Patrick Henry and Paul Revere dare not warn of the dictatorship (foretold by the Brother Branham in 1964 - The Feast of the Trumpets, p. 23:173-174; Revelation 13) rising now in the USA, lest by exposing "identifiable groups" they be indicted for "racial hatred".

Science dare not speak truths that would expose the hazards of fluoridated water, unleaded petrol or the "climate change" hoax. While organized religion, Satan's headquarters on earth, never cause him "offence" by presenting anything more than "the illusion of knowledge". . . and the presumption of truth.

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

Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott

Iran says Sunnis, using Pakistan as Base, planned Fatal Bombing

Tehran, February 19, 2000 – The Iranian Foreign Ministry charged Sunday that Sunni insurgents from Iran used Pakistan as a base to plan a bombing that killed 11 people and wounded more than 30 in the southeastern border city of Zahedan last week. The ministry said it had demanded an explanation from the Pakistani ambassador. . . "Both sides will suffer from insecurity and we decided to set up a committee to raise the security at the borders". . .

Iran has accused the United States and Britain of provoking Sunni insurgents. The authorities have said that the efforts are part of the plot to sow discord among Sunnis and Shiites in the country. Gen. Mohammad Ghaffari, a commander of security forces in the province, told the Fars news agency that a film confiscated from the suspects proved that the group was "affiliated to intelligence agencies of some of the foreign countries, such as the US and Britain."

The news agency also quoted what it called informed sources as saying that the explosives used in the bombings were American. . . Full story:

Former Bush Officials accuse White House of trying to provoke Iran

Hillary Mann Leverett, the former National Security Council Director for Iranian and Persian Gulf Affairs under the Bush administration from 2001 to 2004. . . accused the Bush administration of "trying to push a provocative, accidental conflict" from Iran as a pretext to justify "limited strikes" against the country's crucial nuclear and military infrastructures, as opposed to "an all-out invasion like what happened with Iraq."

Her warning comes a day after sources revealed to Newsweek that "a second Navy carrier group is steaming toward the Persian Gulf" and "that a third carrier will likely follow" to replace one of the strike carriers already in the Gulf. In retaliation, "Iran shot off a few missiles in those same tense waters last week in a highly publicized test." Full story:

Pentagon calls off Plans for Huge Explosion in Desert

Washington, February 22, 2007 –
The Pentagon on Thursday canceled plans to detonate a 700-tonne explosive charge in the Nevada desert that had drawn environmental protests and lawsuits. . . the test was designed to gather data for use in developing weapons capable of destroying deeply buried bunkers containing chemical, biological or nuclear weapons.

It called for detonating 700 tonnes of conventional explosives over a tunnel at a Nevada test site to study its effect on hard granite structures. . . Full story:


Making Martial Law Easier

February 19, 2007 –
A provision quietly tucked into the enormous defense budget bill at the Bush administration's behest makes it easier for a president to override local control of law enforcement and declare martial law.

The provision, signed into law in October, weakens two obscure but important bulwarks of liberty. One is the doctrine that bars military forces, including a federalized National Guard, from engaging in law enforcement. Called posse comitatus, it was enshrined in law after the Civil War to preserve the line between civil government and the military. The other is the Insurrection Act of 1807, which provides the major exemptions to posse comitatus. It essentially limits a president's use of the military in law enforcement to putting down lawlessness, insurrection and rebellion, where a state is violating federal law or depriving people of constitutional rights.

The newly enacted provisions upset this careful balance. They shift the focus from making sure federal laws are enforced to restoring public order. Beyond cases of actual insurrection, the president may now use military troops as a domestic police force in response to a natural disaster, a disease outbreak, terrorist attack or to any "other condition."

Changes of this magnitude should be made only after a thorough public airing. But these new presidential powers were slipped into the law without hearings or public debate. The president made no mention of the changes when he signed the measure, and neither the White House nor Congress consulted in advance with the nation's governors. . .

RFID 'Powder' - World's Smallest RFID Tag

February 14, 2007 –
The world's smallest and thinnest RFID tags were introduced yesterday by Hitachi. Tiny miracles of miniaturization, these RFID chips (Radio Frequency IDentification chips) measure just 0.05 x 0.05 millimeters.

The previous record-holder, the Hitachi mu-chip, is just 0.4 x 0.4 millimeters. . . The "powder type" tags are some sixty times smaller. The new RFID chips have a 128-bit ROM for storing a unique 38 digit number, like their predecessor. Hitachi used semiconductor miniaturization technology and electron beams to write data on the chip substrates to achieve the new, smaller size.

Hitachi's mu-chips are already in production; they were used to prevent ticket forgery at last year's Aichi international technology exposition. RFID 'powder,' on the other hand, is so much smaller that it can easily be incorporated into thin paper, like that used in paper currency and gift certificates. Full story:


Churches back Plan to unite under Pope

February 19, 2007 –
Radical proposals to reunite Anglicans with the Roman Catholic Church under the leadership of the Pope are to be published this year, . . The proposals have been agreed by senior bishops of both churches.

In a 42-page statement prepared by an international commission of both churches, Anglicans and Roman Catholics are urged to explore how they might reunite under the Pope. The statement, leaked to The Times, is being considered by the Vatican, where Catholic bishops are preparing a formal response. . . Full story:

Comment: That most Anglicans would be against this proposal is not the point. Satan's objective is to establish certain principles now, so that in the chaos at the close of the Gentile dispensation, Anglicans will accept Roman headship.


Be Certain of God

Genesis 17:1, "When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him, and said, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be perfect".

Matthew 5:48, "You are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect".

If you are a Christian - not by church membership or personal testimony, but by rebirth - you are perfect. Jesus has already said He would present to Himself a glorious Church "without spot or wrinkle, that it should be holy and without blemish" - the antitype of Israel's acceptable sacrifices (Ephesians 6:25-30). So if you have been baptized into Body of Christ you are the true Church sealed to the day of your redemption.

Jesus said, "He who comes to me I will not cast out" (John 6:37). "Whosoever, hears My Word, and believes on Him who sent Me has eternal Life (already), and shall not come into judgment (and be cast away), but has (already) passed from death into Life" (John 5:24). "Whosoever eats My flesh and drinks My Blood has eternal Life, and I will raise him up at the last day" (John 6:54).

Be certain of God. "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He who fears is not made perfect in love" (I John 4:18). Uncertainty is caused through lack of understanding; that is, insufficient faith. Lucifer's most powerful tool is doubt. Speaking of the earthquake that will sink Los Angeles at the close of the Gentile dispensation and the resultant tidal waves, Jesus said, "There shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken" when Lucifer and his demons are cast down to earth (Luke 21:25-28; Revelation 12:7-13).

"Then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory." This will be the sign of Christ's (Gk. 'parousia') Coming to Israel of which the disciples inquired in Luke 21:7, and although the coming of the Cloud will be physical, this will not be the physical (or Gk. 'erchomai') return of the glorified Messiah. This phenomenon will be reported internationally but comprehended only by Christ's Bride, certifying her faith. "When these things begin to occur, take courage, stand erect, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws nigh." The 144,000 elect Israelites will only see the full significance of this sign after their two prophets are martyred and raised in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week.

These formidable portents prophesied to come upon earth almost at once are not foreboding but promise joy unspeakable and full of glory to Christ's Bride, signifying that in the coming six weeks we will manifest that we are the Sons of God as He instills translation faith in those who are perfect. Then what we say He will do because we have His mind in us and the revelation that we are perfect.

Abraham, Isaac and Israel were shadows and types of the elect Church. God told Abram that by election and grace, "I am going to bring you Home in your old age. You will have a child by Sarah, and through that lineage I will save the World." Abram had done nothing to merit salvation, God simply called him by foreknowledge.

Abram was an Iraqi. He looked like Saddam Hussein and other Iraqis who are a Semitic people. Have you noticed that Jews bear no likeness to these brethren of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob yet Palestinians have a perfect likeness? Abraham's father was an idolater: when Babylonian idolatry became infused with Yahwism in Israel, God destroyed the Northern Kingdom and dispersed its people throughout the Assyrian provinces where they live to this day (Isaiah 11:11; 27:13). As Hosea 1-2 explains, Judah emulated her sister's idolatry so the Lord sent Nebuchadnezzar to raze the temple and take the best of the people captive. There they hybrid faith with Babylonian paganism, making the Word of God of none effect (Matthew 15:9). "The spread of a modified Pharisaism to the ends of the earth has fortunately not prevented the endurance throughout the centuries of the unchanged faith in Rabbinic Judaism. Pharisaism became Talmudism, Talmudism became Medieval Rabbinism, and Medieval Rabbinism became Modern Rabbinism. But throughout these changes of name, inevitable adaptation of custom, and adjustment of Law, the spirit of the ancient Pharisee survives unaltered. . . From Palestine to Babylonia; from Babylonia to North Africa, Italy, Spain, France and Germany; from these to Poland, Russia, and eastern Europe generally, ancient Pharisaism has wandered" demonstrates the enduring importance which attaches to Pharisaism as a religious movement" (Rabbi Louis Finkelstein of The Jewish Theological Seminary of America, Foreword to his First Edition of "The Pharisees, The Sociological Background of Their Faith," p. xxi).

From Judaism, Babylonian paganism hybrid into a Christianized form of idolatry at the First Nicea Council in AD325. Brother Branham said, "till about the time of the AD606 when it come into Thyatira, it was nearly all Jewish converts" (Revelation Chapter 4, Part II, p. 630:263-264). So when John was caught up in the Spirit into the Lord's day, he looked back through time into man's day and saw Mystery Babylon sitting as a queen, with a golden cup filled with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus Christ, persecuting the saints of the living God as the Pharisees had done before her yet bearing the Name of Jesus (Matthew 23:33-36; Revelation 18:24).

Brother Branham said, "Going to Sunday school one morning, I was caught away in a vision. . . Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, I said, "Now, there's going to be three great isms. Which is now in existence. One of them is in Rome, which is Fascism, and one of them is in Germany which is Nazism. And the other one is in Russia, which is Communism." I said, "Those three great isms is the unclean spirits that went out of the mouth of the false prophet, and the dragons, and so forth that will unite themselves together, speaking things that they should not, and they'll all beat at one another, until they'll finally wind up in one ism. And I predict that that will be Communism. And Communism will burn the Vatican city."

"And great persecution will tear down all the differences and run us together as one person. . . No man will ever be able to do it. That's too big a job for a man; God Himself will do that. We will be one someday. Amen. Oh, my, I will be so happy for that, won't you? when it's all over?" (Faith once delivered to the Saints #55-0501; Revelation 16:12-16; 18:1-20).

God is calling His Bride out from the apostate churches into subjection under the Word, and every one, in preparation for the manifestation of the Sons of God when He will endue her with rapturing faith for translation grace. And as it was in the days of Noah, people are unconcerned, eating, drinking, marrying, and giving in marriage, heady, high-minded, incontinent, fierce, and despisers of those that are good.

Israel being called out of Egyptian bondage in the first Exodus is a type of the Bride in these last days being called out of Roman Bondage (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:1-4). Israel migrated to Egypt because of a drought, and it was almost 500 years before she returned to Canaan. The church came into Rome because of a drought for hearing the Word, which was scarce in those days because there was no open vision. Romans 10:17. "Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God" but from John to Brother Branham we had no Word Prophet (I Samuel 3:1; Amos 8:11), and after a thousand years of Dark Ages the faith was almost lost as Rome martyred scores of millions of saints. It is now 500 years since Luther broke the drought, and although God sent the prophet Brother Branham to reveal Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever, the so-called churches remain in Roman bondage.

Present day Jerusalem where Jesus was crucified is spiritually as Sodom and Egypt - abomination and bondage - like the rest of the apostate world with God's Name on it (Revelation 11:8).

Jacob said, "bury me not in Egypt, but carry me out of Egypt and bury me with my fathers" (Genesis 47:28-31). As a prophet, Jacob knew the resurrection would be in Palestine, where God's covenant with Israel was valid (Genesis 17:8). Christians know the resurrection is in Jesus Christ where the Covenant is valid, so we are buried by baptism unto His death and reborn of water and the Spirit, signifying the death of our soul's first husband and our release from the bondage of sin that we might be free to serve our new Husband, Christ the Word (Romans 6).

God has only one provided place where He will receive worship. For blinded Israel, that place is Jerusalem where the lamb was sacrificed. For Christians it is Christ, "the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the World." Like Israel, "We may not present our Lamb within any of the rests which the Lord God gave us: (Pentecost, Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergmos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, or Laodicea): but at the place in which He shall choose to place His Name, there shall we sacrifice the Passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that we came forth out of Egypt." We live in the evening time of the Gentile dispensation (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:27), the holy convocation or fiftieth day of the Pentecostal feast in which the sacrifice of the true faith has been restored so that the evangelistic Message is no longer Matthew 28:19, but Revelation 18:4.

As God kept Israel in Egypt until there arose a Pharaoh who knew not Joseph, He kept the church in Roman bondage until there arose a Pharaoh who knew not Jesus: President John Kennedy (1917-1963). The Roman Catholic hierarchy was not in the White House but she was the system behind it because Mr. Kennedy was one of her children; and the Bible says the United States will be made into an image of the beast. As Israel was not ready to receive Moses, and ran him into exile for forty years, we Gentiles were not ready to receive the Message of our deliverer. Now, after forty years there has arisen another Pharaoh who knows not Joseph: George II, who is working to bring this prophecy of Revelation 13 to pass.

When Christ fulfilled Revelation 4, 5 and 10:1-7, He revealed the Seven Seals through the "Shout" of the Message of His prophet, William Branham. This brought Christ back to earth in WORD form and is calling the wise and foolish virgin out of Roman bondage as Moses called Israel out of Egyptian bondage (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:5-6; Revelation 18:4).

In Moses we see a type of Jesus Messiah and a type of Brother Branham also. Moses was born at a time when Egypt was engaged in a "family planning" program in which all male Israelite were to be thrown into the river at birth. By the grace of God, Moses was preserved and raised in Pharaoh's household because he was foreordained to deliver Israel from bondage. Brother Branham was born before light in the mountains of Kentucky in a little log cabin like that in which Abraham Lincoln was born. When his father opened the shutter of the unglazed window, the Pillar of Fire in the form of a pillow entered the room and stood over the little bed in which he lay. And as God spoke with Moses from the Pillar of Fire in a bush, He spoke to Brother Branham out of a whirlwind in a bush and said, "Never smoke, or drink, or defile your body in any way (i.e. by sexual sins - Ed). There'll be a work to do when you get older".

When Moses returned to Egypt to demand Pharaoh release Israel, God identified him as the promised deliverer by three signs. The first sign was when he threw his staff on the ground and it became a snake, the second was when he placed his right hand in his bosom and it became leprous, showing that the thoughts of the heart of unregenerate man are sinful, and that the hand that holds God's judgment rod must be cleansed. The third sign was when he poured water from the river onto the ground and it became blood, a sign that Egypt would be drenched in blood.

Like Moses, God identified Brother Branham by three signs. The first was where he took a person by the hand and was able to diagnose their condition. Second was the Messianic sign of Hebrews 4:12 "discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart" as prophesied in Luke 17:28-30, ". . as it was in the days of Lot." His third sign was prophetic in the revelation of the Seven Seals, which has brought the world to judgment with death to all but Christ's end-time Bride.

Not only was Moses rejected by his brethren and by Pharaoh, but Brother Branham, despite his vindication, was rejected by his denominational cousins. Both prophets remarried after the death of their first wife. According to Josephus, Moses married an Ethiopian princess, perhaps typifying the extension of God's covenant to we Gentiles (Antiquities of the Jews, ii, 10:2; Psalm 45:9-17). Brother Branham's wives may typify the Laodicean and end-time Brides as both Sisters Hope and Meda bore him children. God placed a judgment rod in Moses' hand, which signified the Word; and a silver sword with handle of pearl and guard of Gold in the hand of Brother Branham, signifying the Word of redemption held in the firm hand of priceless faith is protected by deity.

As a Midianitess, Moses' wife Zipporah delayed the circumcision of her son; her perversity almost brought divine vengeance on Moses who was so busy with affairs of the day he forgot the Old Testament Seal of God. Moses was a type of church organization which failed God, and as Moses died before Israel entered the Promised Land, the Church Age saints will die before the translation of Christ's end-time Bride. With reluctance and anger Zipporah circumcised Gershon, exclaiming, "A bloody husband you are to me because of the circumcision," which binds me to you afresh. She recovered her husband's life at the cost of her son's blood. This event at the inn seems to have induced Moses to send her back to her father as unable to brave the trials of God's people, and perhaps because she rebuked God's prophet. Psalm 105:15, "Touch not My anointed, and do my prophets no harm." Jethro returned her to Moses in Rephidim during the first year's sojourn in the wilderness, which is the last time she is mentioned. Miriam's jealousy was in the second year, so that Moses' marriage to the Cushite must have been between the first and second years. Like Moses' sister Miriam, Sister Hope was jealous.

In deference to the wishes of the mother of his first wife, Hope, Brother Branham disobeyed the Lord by delaying the command to travel and "do the work of an evangelist." Because of this disobedience, God took the life his first wife, their baby daughter, and his brother.

Like Zipporah, Sister Meda lost her temper and rebuked God's prophet, slamming the door behind her. The Lord almost took her life by a huge cyst that developed in her womb. Acts 3:22-23, "Moses said, The Lord your God shall raise up from among your brethren, a prophet like me. Listen to everything he will tell you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, who will not hear that prophet, will be utterly destroyed from among the people" (Heb. 'cherem').

Jesus was a Prophet like Moses, as was Brother Branham who veiled the fullness of the godhead and revealed Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. Those who refuse his Message, which is Christ, shall be utterly destroyed, for they will have rejected the Seal of God, which is the unpardonable sin (Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 14:9-12; 18:1-4; 22:18-19).

The Angel that led the children of Israel in their journey through the wilderness manifest as a Pillar of Cloud by day and a Pillar of Fire by night, was the Angel of the Covenant who was born in the flesh by a virgin and manifest as Jesus Messiah. This was the Angel of the Lord who led Brother Branham's ministry and vindicated His Presence in the same Pillar of Fire and Cloud that led the children of Israel.

If you are a subscriber or reader who is unfamiliar with the present truth, do not rest solely on this Newsletter but zealously exert yourself to confirm your calling and election by studying the Teaching Sermons and other resources on the Church Website, proving all things in your own Bible. Your first responsibility is to ensure you own a clear revelation of the true oneness of the godhead and are baptized in water in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins as Peter instructed the infant Church on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:38-39). Since the new birth is the Spiritual union of your soul with the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now - you must personally establish whether Brother Branham's ministry fulfilled Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7, and familiarize yourself with this Message which restored the apostolic faith and finished the mystery of God, as this is the key to understanding God's unchanging Word. Then as you grow in grace the Holy Spirit will employ the Message to unlock the mystery of Christ hidden in the Holy Bible.

Shall we revisit some of the points which we studied in last week's Newsletter? The "rapture" commenced in 1963 with the "Shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16, which fulfills Matthew 25:6 and Revelation 18:4. As Jesus taught in Revelation 1:10 and 4:1-2, Paul explained in I Thessalonians 4:16, the "rapture" or our catching up into the Day of the Lord is a threefold PROCESS of revelation, consisting of the "Shout" of the Message calling the wise and foolish virgin out from Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches, the "Voice of the Archangel" which is Christ in the heart of His Bride placing the Message from Genesis to Revelation to unfold the mystery of God and bring her to maturity in the unity of the faith. At the dispensation change, Israel's Seventh Trump will signal the resurrection of the Church Age saints, the manifestation of the Sons of God and their translation, then anoint two Hebrew prophets to witness to 144,000 elect Israelites during the first part of Daniel's Seventieth Week.

The revelation of the Seven Seals between March 17 - 24, 1963 brought us the perfect understanding of the Word, "that which is perfect" or complete, which is Christ. Not Jesus the Man, but Christ the Logos or fullness of the anointed Word returned to earth in WORD form through the mouth of God's Prophet as foretold by I Corinthians 13:10 and Revelation 10:1-7.

We are living in man's day, a dispensation wherein grace is free and whomsoever will of Adam's race may receive our Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour. When the last saint predestinated to Christ's Bride has been baptized into the Body, the day of the Lord, which is the day of God's wrath and judgment upon evil will dawn at the sounding of the Seventh Trumpet. This is the manifestation of the Sixth Seal. Grace and the Gentile dispensation will end, Lucifer and his angels will be cast down to earth, Los Angeles and 1,500 x 300 - 400 miles of California will sink beneath the Pacific; earthquakes, volcanoes and tidal waves will devastate much of the world, and the great tribulation will have begun.

Christ comes only three times. This confuses believers who overlook the sometimes unfortunate translation of Greek into English - this confusion is magnified with each new translation or transliteration into colloquial English.

Jesus' first Coming was an 'erchomai' or physical Coming, born of the virgin Mary to fulfill the work of Adam's kinsman Redeemer, paying redemption's price on Calvary.

His second Coming was a 'parousia' Coming to incarnate His end-time Bride, bringing her into "the unity of the faith" for "the manifestation of the Sons of God" and the translation. He came in WORD form, through the mouth of His prophet as he delivered the revelation of the Seven Seals, making perfect, or complete "that which was in part." He is present now in the fullness of His revealed Word. He will come to the elect Israelites in the same manner through the mouth of their "Moses" and "Elijah" of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11:1-13. They will not, however, recognize His Presence until after the death and resurrection of these two prophets in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week. Then the nation will be born-again in one day (Isaiah 65:8; Ezekiel 39:22; Zechariah 3:9-10).

Third will be the 'erchomai' coming of the glorified Jesus Messiah in the office of Son of David to step out on the ashes of the wicked with the Old and New Testament saints for a thousand years of peace. This takes place after all life on earth and all traces of human activity have been destroyed by fire.

If you are unsure of the distinction and application of the Greek, a word study and the helpful research of Brother James Stuart Russell, The Parousia - A Careful Look at the New Testament Doctrine of the Lord's Second Coming will enhance your understanding.

"Friendly fellowship contending for the faith is as stimulating as the sparks that fly when iron strikes iron . . . so let us be mindful to stimulate one another toward love and edifying good works, not neglecting the assembling of ourselves together in church, as some do; but giving mutual encouragement; the more so as you see the day of the Lord drawing near" (Proverbs 27:17; Hebrews 10:24-25).

Christ's second (or 'parousia') Coming took place between March 17-24, 1963. The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in WORD form. He came "as a thief in the night" and He is Present now by revelation in the heart of His end-time Bride.

The physical (or 'erchomai') coming of "the day of the Lord" is yet future. It will be signaled by "a great earthquake of a magnitude unprecedented in human history. Jerusalem will be split into three parts; cities throughout the world will fall in heaps of rubble, and God will remember great Babylon, to make her drink the cup of the fierceness of His wrath. Islands will vanish and mountains will subside" when Brother Branham pours out the Seventh Vial of God's jealousy to separate the foolish virgin from the false church (Revelation 16:18-20). After a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit, not for public show but to build our faith for translation grace, our hunted and persecuted little group will be stolen by the "Thief" - so few in number we will not be missed in the terrifying upset of nature that will come upon earth.

Be sure you are certain of God. As we have explained, the rapture, or catching up of the Bride is a three-fold PROCESS, and not what denominational punters anticipate. The "Shout" of this Message calls Christ's Bride out from apostate Christianity into new birth in Jesus Christ. It has been calling God's elect since the revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963, so the rapture has been in PROCESS for 44 years, yet not one person has been raised from the dead and glorified, but a little flock has been caught up by the Spirit into the Lord's day with both feet planted firmly on the ground.

The "Voice of the Archangel" is not heard by human ears for It speaks within the heart of man, giving certainty as it unlocks Life from the written Word by the Spoken Word, dissolving doubts and correcting misunderstandings to draw us into the unity of the faith. We still have both feet on the ground and must contend with the trials of life.

The manifestation of the Seventh "Trump" and the Sixth Seal at the close of the Gentile dispensation will shake both heaven and earth, casting down Lucifer and his host (Hebrews 12:26-27). And although the Gentile dispensation will have passed, we will neither change in the atoms nor will we be "caught up together with the Church Age saints in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air," until after the resurrection and glorification of our brethren who have fallen asleep and the conclusion of "the manifestation of the Sons of God, . . when the day of Pentecost has fully come [again], and we are all with one accord in one mind" as Brother Branham said (above).

Matthew 24:30-31 is the same as Acts 3:9-11 and Revelation 1:7 to which I shall refer: "Behold, He comes with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also who pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen".

Three different groups will see Him at three different times. The first to see Him is "every eye" of Christ's end-time Bride. Three and half year after the resurrection and translation of the Gentile Church, "they who pierced Him" shall see Him. This revelation will rebirth Israel as a nation in one day, after which they will be hunted down and killed (Revelation 6:11; 11:7-13; 12:17; 13:16-18; 14:12-13). At that time a third but non-elect group of "all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him," recognizing they have missed the new birth; that the rapture has taken place years before without their notice, and in order to retain their names in the Book of Life and salvation they must die as martyrs in support of the Word who died in their stead on Calvary's cross (Deuteronomy 19:21; I John 3:16; Revelation 2:10).

Believers often conflate the second or 'parousia' "Coming of the Lord" to we Gentiles with "the day of the Lord." Christ's Parousia to We Gentiles and We See by Faith, Not by Sight explain how Christ's first or 'erchomai' Coming to Israel and His first or 'parousia' Coming to we Gentiles were in man's day, whereas His second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel and His second or 'erchomai' return as the glorified Jesus will take place in "the day of the Lord.

Matthew's Gospel was directed to an audience of Israelites, not Gentiles. In Matthew 24:3, the disciples asked Jesus three questions in respect of three signs:

1. When will no stone of Jerusalem's temple remain standing upon another?

Jesus answered this question in Matthew 24:15-21, and the prophecy was fulfilled by Roman General Titus. Two readers dispute that this was the fulfillment of prophecy because the so-called "wailing wall" is intact. However the city wall is not the Temple. Do they regard Jesus a false Christ because He was not "in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights" as He prophesied in Matthew 12:40?

2. What will be the sign of your 'parousia' Coming?

Jesus answered this question in Matthew 24:30. This sign will be the manifestation to Israel of the Pillar of Fire as a Cloud at the Seventh Trump, not unlike the sign of His "parousia" Coming that appeared to we Gentiles over Arizona on February 28, 1963 and featured in Life Magazine, May 17, 1963. However Israel will not recognize its true significance at the time as none of them believes in Jesus as His Messiah! This revelation will be delivered through three and a half years of ministry by the two "angels" of verse 31, two prophets in the office of "Moses," who will distinguish Yahweh Torah, the religion of Israel from "Judaism," the Babylonian impost of the Pharisees; and "Elijah," who will reveal the Seven Trumpet mysteries. The Seventh Trumpet reveals the previous six Trumpets of divine Judgment for the crucifixion of Messiah and His rejection over 2,000 years. The revelation of Israel's feast of Trumpets will gather the elect 144,000 Israelites from war and strife into the "Goshen" of Jerusalem for correction, new birth, and martyrdom. The revelation of the Seventh Trumpet will be their revelation of Christ's 'parousia,' and the birth of the nation in one day.

3. What shall be the sign of the end of the dispensations, or ages?

Jesus answered this question in Matthew 24:32-34, "Learn a lesson from the fig tree (the symbol for Israel); as soon as its branch is tender and leaves begin to sprout, you know that summer is almost here. (The beginning of summer marks the harvest of the wheat Bride, the end of the Pentecostal feast or Gentile dispensation, and the ripening of tree crops such as the fig, for the day of Atonement and ingathering at the feast of Tabernacles for the Millennium). So when you see all these things, know that summer, (the end of the dispensations of man's day, and the dawn "the day of the Lord" and great tribulation), is near, even at the doors. I assure you, the generation that witnesses the restoration of Israel to statehood shall not pass on, till all these portents take place".

Israel was declared a nation at midnight on May, 14 1948.

Zechariah 14:1-5 is the Day of the Lord and Christ's unrecognized 'parousia' Coming to Israel, not His physical or 'erchomai' return to rule as King over the earth. It describes Israel's revelation of Christ's parousia in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week. And when they "see" or receive the faith of Jesus Christ they will also recognize His Wife, the Gentile Church as their Queen (Revelation 19:1-9).

In Matthew 24:21-22 Jesus said, "Until now, there has not been tribulation such as that which will commence with the destruction of Jerusalem and its temple; tribulation that will continue for two thousand years under the Seven Trumpet Judgments, culminating in the consummation of life on earth (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 19:20; 20:5, 10). And unless God shortens the time by physically translating His end-time Bride, there will be no flesh saved for the rapture".

As taught in The Rapture and the Second Coming, The Rapture is a Revelation, NOT the Translation. Its climax will be the resurrection and translation of Christ's Wife. His end-time Bride will not see death in the flesh, but those who outlive her will perish in the atomic conflagration soon to come upon earth. nl464.htm

Ulster on the Euphrates: The Anglo-American Dirty War in Iraq
Imagine a city torn by sectarian strife. Competing death squads roam the streets; terrorists stage horrific attacks. Local authority is distrusted and weak; local populations protect the extremists in their midst, out of loyalty or fear. A bristling military occupation exacerbates tensions at every turn, while offering prime targets for bombs and snipers. And behind the scenes, in a shadow world of double-cross and double-bluff, covert units of the occupying power run agents on both sides of the civil war, countenancing - and sometimes directing - assassinations, terrorist strikes, torture sessions, and ethnic cleansing.

Is this a portrait of Belfast during "The Troubles" in Northern Ireland? Or a picture of Baghdad today? It is both; and in both cases, one of Britain's most secret - and most criminally compromised - military units has plied its trade in the darkness, "turning" and controlling terrorist killers in a dangerous bid to wring actionable intelligence from blood and betrayal. And America's covert soldiers are right there with them, working side-by-side with their British comrades in the aptly named "Task Force Black," the UK's Sunday Telegraph reports. . . Full story:

Comment: The City of London, is walking the image to the beast. Last year, when George Bush signed into law a piece of legislation authored by Senator John McCain to prohibit the "cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment" of prisoners, the White House issued a so-called signing statement in which it insisted the ban could be ignored if the President so authorized. . . "Even the FBI has confirmed executive orders authorizing the use of hoods and dogs and stress positions.

"If [these things] were being done to US troops we would call it torture". . . Full story:


Putin accuses US of Bid to force Will on World
Munich, February 10, 2007 - Russian President Vladimir Putin sharply criticized the United States on Saturday for what he said was an attempt to force its will on the world.

Speaking at an annual gathering of top security and defense officials in Germany, Putin attacked the concept of a 'unipolar world' . . It has nothing in common with democracy because that is the opinion of the majority taking into account the minority opinion. . . Putin said the United States had repeatedly overstepped its national borders in questions of international security, a policy that he said had made the world less, not more, safe. . . Full story:


Envoy: Iran poses No Threat to Israel
Munich, February 11, 2007 – Iran's nuclear program is not a threat to Israel and the country is prepared to settle all outstanding issues with the International Atomic Energy Agency within three weeks, its top nuclear negotiator said Sunday. . . "That Iran is willing to threaten Israel is wrong," Larijani said. "We pose no threat and if we are conducting nuclear research and development we are no threat to Israel. We have no intention of aggression against any country". . .

In Israel, Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev dismissed Larijani's comments, saying Iran's government was trying to convince the international community that their intentions are benign. . . Full story:


US able to strike in the Spring
February 10, 2007 – The present military build-up in the Gulf would allow the US to mount an attack by the spring. But the sources said that if there was an attack, it was more likely next year, just before Mr Bush leaves office.

Neo-conservatives, particularly at the Washington-based American Enterprise Institute, are urging Mr Bush to open a new front against Iran. So too is the vice-president, Dick Cheney. The state department and the Pentagon are opposed, as are Democratic congressmen and the overwhelming majority of Republicans. . . Vincent Cannistraro, a Washington-based intelligence analyst (who worked for the CIA and the National Security Council), shared the sources' assessment that Pentagon planning was well under way. "Planning is going on, in spite of public disavowals by Gates. Targets have been selected. For a bombing campaign against nuclear sites, it is quite advanced. The military assets to carry this out are being put in place". . . Mr Bush has ordered oil reserves to be stockpiled. . . Full story:

Comment: The next Inauguration Day will be on January 20, 2009. The date of any attack on Iran will be precipitated by the earthquake, not determined by Mr. Bush, and is likely to occur between one Nisan 14 and the day of Pentecost, soon. A third carrier battle group, the USS Ronald Reagan, is now sailing to the Western Pacific; the signals would begin to look ominous if it were deployed to the Strait of Hormuz.

On 18 April 1988, the US Navy sank two Iranian warships and as many as six armed speedboats after the guided missile frigate USS Samuel B. Roberts struck an Iranian mine within the Persian Gulf.

On July 3, 1988, the USS Vincennes shot down an Iran Air Airbus A300 passenger jet over the Strait, killing 290 people.


North Korea agrees to Nuclear Disarmament
North Korea agreed Tuesday to shut down its main nuclear reactor within 60 days at talks with the US and four regional powers and eventually dismantle its atomic weapons program. . . The Korean peninsula has technically remained in a state of war for more than a half-century since the Korean War ended in a 1953 cease-fire. . . Full story:

Experts question Theory on Global Warming
New Delhi, February 11, 2007 – There are only about a dozen scientists working on 9,575 glaciers in India under the aegis of the Geological Society of India. . . VK Raina, a leading glaciologist and former ADG of GSI. . . told the Hindustan Times. . . till date, research has been conducted only on about 50. Nearly 200 year's data has shown that nothing abnormal has occurred in any of these glaciers.

"Claims of global warming causing glacial melt in the Himalayas are based on wrong assumptions," Raina, a trained mountaineer and skiing expert said. He rued that not much is being done by the Government to create a bank of trained geologists for an in-depth study of glaciers. . . . Nobody knows what is happening beneath the glaciers. What ever is being flaunted about the under surface activity of the glaciers, is merely presumptions, he claimed.

His views were echoed by Dr RK Ganjoo, Director, Regional Centre for Field Operations and Research on Himalayan Glaciology. . . Another leading geologist MN Koul of Jammu University, who is actively engaged in studying glacier dynamics in J&K and Himachal holds similar views. . . Full story:

A Simple Logical Tautology explains this living Oxy-moron
How could it be that the vast efforts within standard academic circles are so out of touch with reality??? even with the most sophisticated scientific equipment ever conceived by man (within our minuscule recorded history anyway) searching to the far reaches of the universe ???

Astronomers in their haste and anxiety 50 years ago (and prior to sending out any space probes) decided on four Axioms of Astronomy. So . . . every PhD awarded in those years has learned and heralded these incorrect concepts (those who disagreed did not get a PhD) so is it any wonder they all agree?? . . . As contradictory information came in one piece at a time they continued to put band-aids on the axioms or discarded the data. . . And this is handed off to the public through textbooks, news papers, magazines, TV, the evening news and on and on. . . standard scientists really hate me . . I am bringing this message directly to the public . . . in a world of government-supported science and scientists. . .

99% of scientists today repeat what they "know" from something they read. . . few have taken the painful route to research the many issues for themselves. PhDs all lined up in a row saying the same things does not make "science" . . . since they have long since eliminated the "competition" they are free to say whatever they want unopposed.

That is how we arrived at the mess we are seeing today in this crazy world we live in. . . Then add in the secret and black ops groups who strive to keep the public from knowing the truth. Full story:

Comment: For 2,000 years this evil has warped the revelation of God and history, so He sent a prophet whose Message restored the apostolic faith, finished the mystery of God, and is calling the wise and foolish virgin out of darkness. Most people, like most scientists, regard the praise of men above truth. Hence the court decided against our Church. Because men have rejected knowledge and will not take warning, God will reject them (Hosea 4:6). Soon cometh the earthquake.


Profile of a Post-modern Outsider: Coming in from the cold
The Romanised version of Christianity became not only the religion of the empire, but a militant imperial ideology that promptly counter-invaded and colonized the barbarian wave that eventually overwhelmed Western Europe. This cultural lifeboat was a carrier of classical memory that civilized barbarian life and nearly a millennium later, provided start-up propellant for the Renaissance and the emergence of modern times.

If modern societies similarly fail, their populations will be quite literally 'thrown to the wolves', like their Roman predecessors. If there are to be any sort of lifeboats against such times, we need to start building them now.

In poor post-colonial, but still traditional societies, Islam is the main contender for this role because it delivers a complete package of governance, education, accountability and discipline, moral focus and spiritual coherence in societies that have failed to modernize properly. They are being forced to go back to roots that provide structure and hope where otherwise there would be none. Our problem in the West is that we are now so detraditionalised, those lifeboats that haven't already been jettisoned have become derelict and leaky refuges for mainly the elderly and those so desperate, they will cling to anything that looks like it might float.

Since my youth, I have watched the virtues prized by traditional societies being systematically dismantled by people who styled themselves as 'progressives'. Initially I thought they were just cleaning out repressive and hypocritical stuffiness from the past. It took a while to realise that their lefty liberal blandishments were also a front for the totalitarian reconstruction agenda of consumer markets. Nothing less than the wholesale legitimatisation and mythologizing of impulsive self-indulgence and the inhibition and demonisation of the discipline that enables growth out of adolescence into responsible and mature adulthood. Now into its third generation of Peter Pans and Wendys, this agenda is completely entrenched and the remnants of what predated it are dying off.

Science and creeping secularity have also done their work. Once cosmology, astronomy, geography, biology and history were unified under theology, that is, heaven and hell were real places above and below a flat earth on which the life-giving, all powerful will of The Almighty Creator held historical sway. Modern Times have all but destroyed this view, not deliberately, but as a by-product of their operations. Fragments of the wreckage will provide pious solace, but only in places where faith and reason no longer meet, or if there is limited access to modern knowledge. Full story:

Comment: Here is a classic illustration of Hegelianism where a fabricated thesis, the papal Roman empire which will rule earth unto the consummation of all life (Daniel 2:40-45; 8:22-27; 9:26-27; Revelation 13; 17), is brought into controlled conflict with a fabricated antithesis, Islam in order to produce a pre-planned outcome or synthesis inimical to both.


The New History of the Pyramids
Polymer chemists have tested the stones from which the pyramids were finished, and found they were made much like modern concrete building slabs, proving by experimentation that poured limestone is virtually identical to the natural stone.

Egyptologists say 25,000 to 100,000 workmen built the great pyramids with solid quarry stones; polymer chemists say only 2,300 men are needed using poured limestone blocks. Twenty three hundred is the size of the workmen’s village at Giza!

The stones were cast in wood frames of 5 different sizes to resist seismic waves from earthquakes! The monuments to the pharaohs were truly built to be eternal.

Video demonstrates the re-agglomerated stone process invented by Imhotep, Chief Pyramid Architect for Pharaoh Zoser. This website illustrates the main arguments in support of reconstituted stones and molded artifacts. Here is the trailer: Microstructural Evidence of Reconstituted Limestone Blocks in the Great Pyramids of Egypt. Full story:


The Day of the Lord

I Thessalonians 5:5-7, "But of the times and the seasons, brethren, you need no writing from me, for you yourselves are aware that the day of the Lord will come (Gk. 'erchomai') as a thief in the night. For when they say, 'Peace and safety,' then sudden destruction will come upon them like the birthpangs of a pregnant woman, and there will be no escape." Thus Brother Branham warned, Jews in the United States at this time "won't escape" to Israel (C.O.D., p. 97:234).

"But you, brethren, are not in the dark concerning these things, that the day of the Lord should surprise you as by a thief. For you are all children of the Light, and of the day: and do not belong to darkness and night. Therefore let us watch for His return and be sober, not asleep like the others. Night is the time for sleeping, and the time when drunkards get drunk".

Two thousand years ago Paul wrote to the saints in Thessalonica regarding the end of grace and the Gentile dispensation, which will bring the day of the Lord's wrath and judgment upon all who have slept when they should have been watching for the signs of which he had no need to write as they were well-known from the Old Testament and the Words of Jesus, who said, "you know neither the day nor the hour" (I Peter 1:11; Matthew 16:3).

Their certainty and ours was not to be in respect of calculating dates as to when He would come but in consideration of the signs and of the secrecy and suddenness of His Coming. Brother Branham said, "Jesus did NOT say no man could know the year, month or week in which His coming was to be completed" at the sounding of the Seventh Trumpet (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:4; I Thessalonians 4:16). The certainty of the secret sudden crisis required Christians of all Ages to watch for the promised signs so they could recognize their day and it's Message. One who was not watching for the promised signs might be found impersonating the bygone days of Luther, Wesley, or the Pentecostals.

The hilltops and corners of every village and town throughout this apostate world bear tombstones falsely called churches in blessed memory of Lutheran, Wesleyan, Pentecostal and other genuine Moves of the Spirit in some bygone day but with no revelation of the present Truth - what Jesus is doing now! In Matthew 25 Jesus spoke of those who slumbered and slept through the Church Ages, oblivious to the natural "times and seasons" of compulsory assembly before the Lord set forth in Leviticus 23 to "foreshadow promised Spiritual antitypes to come" (Hebrews 10:1).

I Thessalonians 4:15-18, "We tell you by the Word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain unto the (Gk. 'parousia') Coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the Voice of the Archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ will rise first: then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air: and so we shall forever be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these Words".

Without regard to dates and times, "the day of the Lord will come (Gk. 'erchomai') as a thief in the night" upon those who have not watched for the signs and who miss the (Gk. 'parousia') Coming of the Lord" because they have been looking for the physical return of the glorified Man instead of the restoration of the Light of the world that rose in Jerusalem.

The physical (Gk. 'erchomai') coming of "the day of the Lord," which is future, is not the same as the (Gk. 'parousia') "Coming of the Lord," that took place between March 17-24, 1963, making His Presence current for we Gentiles.

Matthew 24:2, 21-28, "When General Titus destroys Jerusalem there will not remain one stone upon another that shall not be thrown down. . . then there will be such great tribulation as has never been experienced since the beginning of the world to this time, nor ever will be. (That tribulation has continued until today). And unless those days are shortened, there will be no flesh saved for the rapture: but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened" (by the revelation of the Message of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7 which calls us out from denominationalism into "the unity of the faith" for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the great translation).

"Then (in the time of the shortening of days when the apostolic faith has been restored and "the mystery of God is finished") if any man says, 'Messiah has arrived at a certain place, or has appeared here or there,' believe him not"!

You see, Brethren, Christ's second Coming to we Gentiles, and later to Israel, is not the physical or 'erchomai' return of the glorified Son of David. That will take place at the commencement of the Millennium, after the consummation of all life on earth. His second Coming is the 'parousia' or arrival and subsequent Presence of the fullness of the Logos or WORD form of the Son of man through the revelation of the Seven Seals (I Corinthians 13:10). Neither ourselves not the 144,000 elect Israelites at the revelation of their Seven Trumpet mysteries will visibly see Jesus Messiah at this Coming. Revelation 10:1-7 describes His Coming to we Gentiles in 1963 - He is present NOW. Zechariah 14:1-5 prophesies His Coming to Israel at the end of our dispensation and the commencement of the day of the Lord. He comes to us each by the revelation of an Angelic symbol.

Messiah will not physically set foot on land and sea, nor stand on the mount of Olives. Those visions symbolize the judgment He brings at His parousia to we Gentiles, and at His parousia to Israel. So if anyone tells you Messiah is here, or over there, that is a lie. On this side of the millennium He will be seen only by a clear revelation of the Word for the hour. So remain sober, watchful, and wide awake.

Zechariah 14:1-5, "Behold, the day of the Lord comes, when Israel shall be plundered. For I will gather all nations to battle against Jerusalem. The city shall be captured, the houses rifled, the loot divided, and the women raped; half of the city shall go forth into captivity; but the rest of Israel will not be cut off from Jerusalem. (After the 1948-1967 border with Palestine is restored and Jerusalem is made an international city and world capital under Rome). Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as He fought in the days of war. On that day His feet will stand on the mount of Olives, to the east of Jerusalem, and the mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by a very wide valley; so that one half of the mountain shall move northward, and the other half southward. And this valley shall block the valley of Kidron, for it will reach to the side of My mountains, and you shall escape through that valley as you fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord Jesus Christ my God shall come, and all the saints with Him" (Isaiah 2-4; 13:6 - 14:27; 18; 29:1-16; Joel 2:1-11; as with I Thessalonians 4:14; Jude 14-15; Revelation 19:1-16).

The uninspired genius of George II is gathering the nations in fulfillment of this prophecy that will unfold concurrently with the earthquake that sinks Los Angeles and 1,500 x 300 - 400 miles of California beneath the Pacific when the Sixth Seal opens at the end of our dispensation.

Matthew 24:24-28, In the time of the shortening of days "there shall arise false Christs, (not false Jesus', but false anointed ones) and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders to mislead, if it were possible, even the elect. I warn you beforehand. So if they say to you, 'He is there in the desert;' do not go out: 'He is in the inner rooms;' do not believe it. For as lightning flashes across the sky from east to west; so shall the universal 'parousia' Coming of the Son of man be. (And no man can have a universal coming). For wheresoever the fresh Body-Word of the hour is, there the eagles will be gathered together" to feed.

The Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet will pour out the latter rain of the Holy Spirit on the harvest-ripe seed of every kind of flesh, "For He makes the Sun of His Word to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends the rain of His Spirit on the just and on the unjust" (Matthew 5:45). As the law of reproduction requires every species to bring forth "after its own kind, whose seed is in itself" (Genesis 1:11), the wheat will bear wheat, and the tares tares, ladies will be ladies, Catholics will produce the fruit of Roman dogma, Baptists will act like Baptists and Anglicans will express Anglican doctrine, while Christians will manifest they are Abraham's seed by the Word of the hour with the Life of Christ on display.

With the exception of 144,000 elect Israelites, the world will have come to a place of no more repentance. "He who is unjust will continue in his injustice: he who is filthy will continue his unsanctified ways: he who is righteous will continue in righteousness, he who is holy in his holiness," and Christ's end-time Bride with the "third pull" will manifest that they are the Sons of God (Daniel 12:10; Revelation 22:11).

Hebrews 6:4-8, "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who have once been enlightened by the Gospel, tasted of the heavenly Gift, made partakers of the Holy Ghost, and have tasted the goodness of the Word of God and the powers of the world to come, if they then apostatize, since they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put Him to an open shame. For the land that has drunk the rain that often falls upon it, and brings forth vegetation useful to those for whose sake it is cultivated, receives a blessing from God: but land that bears thorns and thistles is rejected, and is near to being cursed; its end is to be burned".

"It is impossible for a born-again saint to apostatize." He is sealed to that day of his physical redemption and the revealed Word of God remains in Him (Ephesians 4:30; I Peter 1:22-25). In explaining the parable of the sower, Jesus typed the different qualities of land with the soul of the un-believer, the make-believer, and the genuine elect and non-elect believer (Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23).

Christ has come universally "as a thief in the night." And within the circle of this Message "every eye has seen Him" in the sign of His parousia (Matthew 24:3; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7). Yet despite having an intellectual understanding of this term, few possess the revelation. We must press beyond head knowledge into faith, and discipline ourselves to take God at His revealed Word. Doubt precludes new birth or Spiritual healing: physical healing, also.

Israel's roots may be traced to Abraham's exodus from Iraq with the promise that God would make him a great nation and his name a blessing to all families of Adam's race (Genesis 12:1-3). Although each of Abraham's eleven sons was a seed of Abraham, God said, "In Isaac shall your seed be called," so the birthright and blessing passed through Isaac alone to Esau, who despised and sold his birthright to his Brother Jacob for a bowl of soup. When Jacob overcame he received the name Israel and his twelve sons became the patriarchs of the great nation.

Exodus and church mean "called out" or separated. When God separated Israel out of Egypt He called them "the Church in the wilderness" (Acts 7:38). Elect Israel and the elect Church have a feminine designation so the elect Israelites who made up the primitive Church and the elect 144,000 Israelites are called "the woman in the wilderness" (Revelation 12:6, 14). As Israel was not numbered among the nations, the Church is not numbered among the denominations. More particularly we are typed by Levi who possessed nothing in this world and was not numbered like his brothers.

Romans 9:1-7, "I speak the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost when I tell you I carry intense grief and unceasing anguish in my heart. For I could wish myself banished from Christ for the sake of my brethren, my kinsmen who are Israelites; to whom pertains the sonship, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the Law, the worship of God, and the promises. Theirs are the fathers, and of their race, according to the flesh Christ descended, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen."

"It is not as though the Word of God had failed. For by no means do all of Israel's descendants belong to Israel, and not all are children of Abraham because they are his descendants; but 'Through Isaac shall your descendants be called.' Thus it is not children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are reckoned as descendants".

Neither are all who confess Christ as Saviour Christians; only those born a second time of the promised Seed. Abraham's promised Seed was not the sperm that begot his eleven sons, or the Seed would be of works and not of promise through faith. The promise is predestinated to the elect of God by His sovereign choosing from the foundation of the world. Thus His promise to Abraham passed from Israel to Judah to David and manifested in Jesus Christ who was born of the virgin Mary by her faith in the promise. At Kadesh-Barnea natural Israel exchanged the blessing of God's promise to Abraham for the reasoning of ten faithless spies, and God put the nation under the curse of the Law.

"The promise that he should be heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the Law, but through the righteousness of faith, which he had being yet uncircumcised" (Romans 4). "The seal of circumcision was given by God in recognition of the righteousness Abraham possessed being yet uncircumcised: in order that he might be the father of all who believe, though they are not circumcised, so that righteousness might be imputed to them also." Christians are not those who believe and love the Lord but those who are sealed to the day of their redemption, God signifying that He has received their faith and separated them from the world by circumcision in heart and ears. We are Abraham's Seed by the new birth or baptism with the Holy Ghost reproducing the Life of Christ in us by our manifested faith in the present Truth. As "the Life is in the blood," Christians are the blood of Christ by the baptism with the Holy Ghost.

When God called Abraham out of Iraq He called neither his father, who was an un-believer, nor his make-believer nephew, Lot. God deals with individuals, and His Word calls for a total separation from unbelief. Abraham was hindered in His service till his father Terah died and until he separated from Lot, who ended in disgrace. Election is based on God's foreknowledge of the decisions we will take as we encounter His Word for our Age.

God is visiting we Gentiles to call out a people for His Name, a Bride for His Son (John 5:43; Acts 15:14). Christ is our Head and we are His Body - not made by sex but called by faith in His Word. As His Body consists of many different Members, each of its parts must be spoken by a specific portion of the Word called in its designated and decreed season and time. The legs cannot be spoken until the feet have been formed to support them, nor can the torso be called into being until the legs are complete. Thus God predestinated a different portion of Word to quicken the saints in Pentecost, each of the Seven Church Ages, and in this present holy convocation or Bride Age.

The Body is built by nine distinct baptisms with the Holy Ghost. We must recognize our day and its Message if we are to be placed as lively stones in that part of the Body God is building in our day. We cannot be baptized into the Lutheran and Presbyterian part of the Body in this day; the saints of the Sardis Age were complete in 1750 when God began to build the Philadelphian part of the Body by a different portion of His anointed Word. But the members of that part of the Body were complete in 1906 when God revealed a further measure of His Word in order to baptize the Laodicean members into the Body. Now that all seven Church Ages are fulfilled He has come Himself in WORD form to call the wise and foolish virgin out of Rome and her now apostate daughter churches, which cannot bring anyone to the new birth as they are impersonating the Word for a day gone by (Revelation 3:17-20). Now Christ is incarnating His end-time Bride.

Organized religion is not of God because it is ruled by committees of men and cannot be led of the Spirit. Denominations are organizations established to further often genuine Moves of God after the death of one of His "angels" such as Martin Luther or John Wesley. Well-intentioned but not Spirit-led, denominations bind the Spirit and steal the liberty into which Christ set us free, for when the Spirit moves contrary to headquarters, God's elect are either expelled or must leave the denomination in order to keep on walking in the Light.

It is serious error to believe that a Roman or Orthodox Catholic, Lutheran, Anglican, Presbyterian, Methodist or Pentecostal can also be a Christian in this day. When the last saint was baptized into the Laodicean part of the Body, PART-Word was done away and Christ's mediation was fulfilled. The revelation of the Seven Seals brought "that which is perfect" back to earth in WORD form (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:1-7). Since then this Message has been calling an exodus of God's people from all denominations. Although they are nominally Christian they will unite with Rome to persecute true believers. The youngest remaining Laodicean saint would be in his late 50s today and I understand only Christ's end-time Bride will bypass the grave. Denominational people who are saved "as by fire," will be martyred by the church during the tribulation (Matthew 25; I Corinthians 13:15; Revelation 13:15-18).

Joseph, who came to perfection with nothing recorded against him represents Christ's end-time Bride, for we are growing "into the unity of the faith" and stand boldly before the throne of grace without condemnation or a Mediator. As Joseph was persecuted and betrayed by his brothers in the Israelite church, after the earthquake divides the mount of Olives and destroys the Dome of the Rock, Russia will side with Islam in its defense of the mosque. Our denominational cousins will unite with Rome to defeat Communism and we will be hunted and persecuted by the churches, after which Russia will attack and invade a crippled mainland USA.

Rome and the Jews are working hand-in-glove as the Prophet foretold since Rome wants Jerusalem, and the Illuminati no longer need Zionism as it has gotten them their city state of refuge where they can impersonate, while in fact fulfilling, Scripture. Now they are throwing political Zionism into battle against Islam to de-horn and tame both, and get on with the initial stage of their one world government plans with their Roman Catholic "front," which will also be destroyed when it has accomplished its usefulness as we read in Daniel 2:34-35; 8:25; and Revelation 17:16; 18:17.

The Roman Catholic church was organized at the Hegelian dialectic of the First Nicea Council in AD325. As Head of Rome's Department of Religion, emperor Constantine called this meeting in order to settle doctrinal disputes by consensus. But the majority are always wrong in Spiritual matters as God is known by the faith of His elect, not by a show of hands. Constantine was never a Christian and his concern was with politics, not faith. The powers that be brought the heresies of Trinitarianism and Arianism together in controlled conflict in order to produce a monopoly anti-Christ religion in union with the State that could destroy the faith. They "Christianised" the pagan Babylonian religion worshipped in Rome, and mixed in elements of the Jewish temple worship with its high priest, holy water, continual sacrifice, last rites, and so on, as they had paganised Yahwism during the Babylonian captivity of the Judeans.

Wake up Church! "The Bridegroom has come, go out to meet Him! Trim your lamps, take oil in your vessels with your lamps!" Pay heed to the Shout, "the Philistines be upon thee, Pilgrim"!

Chief Rabbi of the United States, Stephen S. Wise explained, "The return from Babylon and the adoption of the Babylonian Talmud marks the end of Hebrewism and the beginning of Judaism."

Dr. Hugo Winkler and Leonard King wrote, "Judaism was not evolved in Judah. . . It was in Babylonia that Judaism first became that which it was and still is" (The Hebrew Peoples," Harmsworth History of the World).

Rabbi Ben Zion Bokser wrote, "This is not an uncommon impression and one finds it sometimes among Jews as well as Christians - that Judaism is the religion of the Hebrew Bible. It is, of course, a fallacious impression. . . Judaism is not the religion of the Bible" (Judaism and the Christian Predicament, New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1967, p. 59).

Rabbi Eliezer Berkovits concurred, "This book of eternal inspiration (the Bible) has ceased to inspire modern Jewry, and what is more, it is almost unknown to the great majority of them" (Towards Historic Judaism, 1943 p.52).

Rabbi Moshe M. Maggal, President, National Jewish Information Service wrote, ". . . you will notice the great difference between the Jewish and Christian religions. But these are not all. We consider the two religions so different that one excludes the other. . . we emphasized that there is no such thing as a Judeo-Christian religion. . . There is not any similarity between the two concepts" (Letter of August 21, 1961).

While The London Jewish World of March 15, 1923 declared: "Fundamentally, Judaism is anti-Christian".

"The circumcised Philistines be upon thee Israel! Arise! Return to your homeland!

Brother Branham said, "Now, what happened? Watch this. Outer courts was Luther's age, as we start in the body of the Gentile church. Remember, they were Jewish on up till about the time of the AD606 when it come into Thyatira, it was nearly all Jewish converts. But after the Jewish, it dropped over in here to both Jew and Gentile (but mostly Jewish). But when it really come through to the Gentile age, come this side (See?), come Martin Luther, John Wesley, and so forth. See?" (Revelation Chapter 4, Part II, p. 630:263-264)

Also, "Now then, I think there is something else you ought to know. The seven Churches which are addressed by John are in Asia Minor and are all Gentile Churches. He does not speak to the church at Jerusalem which was mostly Jewish with perhaps just a few Gentiles in it. The reason is that God had turned from the Jews to the Gentiles. Thus the whole of the Church Ages is God dealing with the Gentiles, and calling out a Gentile Bride to Himself. That makes the 'Church Ages' and 'the Fullness of the Gentiles' the one and the same thing" (Church Ages, p. 71:1).

The First Church of Rome, begun by Junius and Andronicus, apostatized three hundred years before Nicea yet remains the First Church of Rome - the Roman Catholic Church - controlled at the highest levels by the 'hidden hand' through men who claim to be Christians but are not and are liars who kill dissenters and poison men's souls, replacing truth with Babylonian dogma, ritual ignorance and religious ceremony.

Once tradition, ritual and a Nicolaitane priesthood was instituted, the system would self-perpetuate under evil men whose ambition ensured their elevation above humble priests and maintain the momentum out of self interest - pride, self-seeking, love of luxury and carnal lusts. They need not necessarily be of the 'hidden hand' since they would become "company men" so to speak, managing the system and developing "company" interests in line with the "mission statement." At any time the 'hidden hand' could install his man as cardinal or pope.

Catholicism, Jesuitism, Communism, Zionism, Nazism and Capitalism were devised, financed and steered by the 'hidden hand.' At times it lost control - as when Hitler made Germany independent of the Banksters, and Stalin decided to turn Russia from international to national socialism, temporarily emasculating Rothschild's vehicle for world government.

As the Jews had to unite with Rome for the first crucifixion of the Logos, now Rome is uniting with the moneypower for the second crucifixion. Judaeo-Communism, the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church and the intermarried Black Nobility are each seeking world hegemony. When it is expedient they co-operate, but they will betray one another. As "the City" betrayed Russia and Russia betrayed Germany, Rome will betray the Banksters.

Revelation 2:9 and 3:9 speak of the so-called Jews who are neither residents of Judea nor Israelites by race but impostors claiming mythological privilege as "God's chosen people," typing those who claim to be Christians, elect of God, but who lie and are no more than wolves in sheep's clothing.

The Books of Daniel and Revelation portray modern history as the conflict between Rome and natural and Spiritual Israel on the one hand, and between Jews and natural and Spiritual Israel on the other. They ally themselves against the common enemy, but after victory and martyrdom they turn on one another in the joust for world hegemony. But when Rome breaks her agreement with the Banksters in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, the Black Nobility will side with Russia and destroy the Vatican and (once) Protestant America.

Brother Branham typed Esau and Jacob with Rome and the Jews, explaining how, following the sinking of Los Angeles and the collapse of fiat money, they will reach an accommodation to refinance the US dollar as the world's reserve currency in order restore world trade and retrieve the value of paper instruments (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 504:Q28; A revelation of the Seven Church Ages, p. 314:1; 377; 379 Genesis 33).

Dr. Edwin Vieira writes, "a monetary and political realist must anticipate that the big-money boys, both here and overseas, will design a financial escape hatch through which they and their cronies can wriggle when the ship of state sinks in a hyperinflationary tsunami. After all, who can imagine that the porcine special-interest groups that pull the politicians’ strings would ever permit their marionettes to force them to settle their claims against the General Government for hyperinflated currency, the purchasing power of which is many orders of magnitude less than its nominal value?!

Since the opening of the Seven Seals the theophanies of the Church Age saints are on earth in the sixth dimension (I Thessalonians 4:15; Jude 14-15). God is governing in all things, working through the fleshly veil of His saints. However the Supernatural behind the scenes is hidden from our three dimensions and we see only the Life of Christ in the actions of His saints, in answers to prayer, and the fulfillment of prophecy.

Likewise we discern the "hidden hand" of Satan's disciples called the Illuminati and other names has everything planned in this world. The election of political figures he decides in advance; wars, the mythical "economic cycle," assassinations, plagues like AIDS, ebola, SARS, influenza, and hoaxes such as the holocausts, Y2K, climate change, currency, oil, water and other shortages, are also planned well in advance. We are not conscious of this planning because we are kept too busy to think - information is restricted by the controlled media, institutes of education and religion, whilst disinformation is disseminated by the same organs - and because such planning is very long-term. The military blueprint for the present World War III between Islam and the political Zionists, for instance, was drafted in 1871, but previous planning discussions may have covered centuries. As disclosed in Newsletter #460 and our teaching sermons, the world is ruled by dynasties like the royal families, Roman Catholic church, the Anglican church, Banksters of the City of London, and corporations. Politicians and institutes like the United Nations carry out the mandates of these dynasties who set government policies. In 1953 the Reece Committee of the US Senate proved with an overwhelming amount of evidence that "they" have the whole world divided into "franchises".

These two files illustrate the all-pervasive planning, power and reach of the unseen 'hidden hand':

The average person does not have the awareness, interest, time, ability, background or access to resources to research these things, and because they are too foreboding, he shuts the very thought from his mind, turns his head, and walks the other way. He lives and thinks and plans from payday to payday, vacation to vacation, birthday to birthday, Christmas to Christmas; in other words, very short term. At most 25 years from marriage to the graduation and marriage of his own children, from purchase to discharge of his mortgage, from the birth of his first grandchild to his retirement.

This is all true, but of course it is no excuse. We have allowed ourselves to be disempowered by turning our backs to God's Word as our Absolute; leaving ourselves without the Authority of the Highest Power, thereby holding ourselves hostage to reasoning and the oppression of law, which is arbitrary reasoning and a curse. I Timothy 1:8-11, "the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God".

Dynasties, on the other hand, plan and work in terms of centuries or even millennia. Dynasties do not face mortality like mere men, hence the battle between Lucifer and Michael has been ongoing six thousand years. As the opening of the Seven Seals brought Christ and the theophanies of the Church Age saints from heaven to earth, the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet will cast our Accuser and his hosts from the heavenlies to earth (Revelation 12:7-13).

In the midst of "Jacob's trouble" the elect Israelites will see in their revelation of Christ's parousia, "a white horse; whose Rider is called Faithful and True, and who judges and makes war in righteousness. His eyes are as a flame of fire, and on His head are many crowns; and He has a Name written that no man knew, but He Himself. He is clothed with a vesture dipped in the blood of Edomites, and His Name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven follow Him upon white horses, resurrected saints, vindicated Word, clothed in fine linen, white and clean" . . . in the day of the Lord. nl463.htm
