ISSN 1442-8660

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.

There is no such thing as "God in three persons, blessed Trinity," or a "blessed three in One," for God is One person making Himself manifest in "thousand thousands and ten thousand times ten thousand" in One by His Word, which is Spirit in a form we can receive by faith (Daniel 7:10; Revelation 5:11; 9:16). This was Jesus' prayer in the garden of Gethsemane (John 17:20-26). The greatest revelation is the supreme Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our main article in this issue lays a Scriptural foundation teaching "The Creation of God and His One Eternal Purpose," which explains the Bible as the story of God unfolding Himself or changing His form from the eternal Spirit—alone with His thoughts—to the manifestation of those thoughts in the flesh of His glorified Family.

After you have proven this teaching in your own Bible and found it helpful, please forward it to friends who may be loosed from chains of denominational traditions if they read and understand its Message (John 8:32).

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.

Iran a Nuclear Threat, Bush Insists
March 21, 2008 – The president spoke in an interview intended to reach out to the Iranian public on the Persian new year and to express "moral support" for struggling freedom movements, particularly among youth and women. It was designed to stress US support for Iran's quest for nuclear energy and the prospects that Washington and Tehran can "reconcile their differences" if Iran cooperates with the international community to ensure that the effort is not converted into a weapons program.

But most striking was Bush's accusation that Iran has openly declared its nuclear weapons intentions, even though a National Intelligence Estimate concluded in December that Iran had stopped its weapons program in 2003, a major reversal in the long-standing US assessment. "They've declared they want to have a nuclear weapon to destroy people—some in the Middle East. And that's unacceptable to the United States, and it's unacceptable to the world," Bush told US-funded Radio Farda, which broadcasts into Iran in Farsi.

Experts on Iran and nuclear proliferation said the president's statement was wrong. "That's as uninformed as [Sen. John] McCain's statement that Iran is training al-Qaeda. Iran has never said it wanted a nuclear weapon for any reason. It's just not true. It's a little troubling that the president and the leading Republican candidate are both so wrong about Iran. . ."

Comment: Everything is running according to plan. A statement by former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan confirms, 'the City' has created division among Muslims in the Middle East; UN "peacekeepers"—and in Newspeak "peace" means "war"—are overextended and unable to take over US mayhem in Afghanistan or Iraq, much less Iran. The men from "Uncle" have created intentional chaos from which they plan to establish Lucifer's new worldly order. George II must make his move before his term expires.


The Gentlemen's Bailout
March 20, 2008 – The Federal Reserve's announcement of an open-ended bail-out for Wall Street's endangered financial firms and banks opens an ominous new chapter in what might be called "market socialism with American characteristics." If Washington tries to do something for "losers" who are ordinary citizens, financial titans complain about violating free-market principles. When the titans themselves are going down, they rush to their patrons at the central bank and demand extraordinary relief. Government must save the big money, we are told, for the overall good of the economy. Thus, the financial system's reckless losses—approaching $1 trillion but probably far more—are being "socialized," dumped on the public, the very people victimized by its snares and falsified valuations.

Put aside the obvious hypocrisy and greed. This nation is on the brink of a historic catastrophe. It requires emergency responses from the federal government on a scale not seen since the Great Depression and the New Deal, the subject of this special issue. Yet the rescue party is composed of the same people who co-wrote this disaster. They are, first, the financiers who indulged their own appetites for extreme wealth and enlarged a financial system of esoteric fakery that inflated prices and profits. Second, the close collaborators were the Federal Reserve and other authorities who blessed this dangerous concoction and declined to enforce prudential standards.

Now the hoax is falling apart. Many millions of innocents, here and around the world, will suffer painful consequences. The authorities, meanwhile, are trying to "save the system" by propping up failure. . . Full story:

Comment: This is what Brother Branham said in 1963 with respect to the oncoming collapse of the US dollar, world financial system and economy: "I believe the time will come when we're forced to make the issue. And when it will be, that instead of us changing the currency. . . What would that do to the Philip Morris? What would that do to the whiskey companies? What would that do to the steel industry? What would that do to all the commerce? . . . It would break them. They'd be broke. But if we can borrow that money. . . See how smart he is? Then the nation sells out to the church and then church and state is united again, and there she comes. See? That's it (COD, p. 506:3).


Brother Branham's 1933 Vision
In 1933 the Lord showed Brother Branham seven continuous visions. The fourth vision said, "And it shall come to pass, that before the end time shall come, that automobiles will take on the shape of an egg, become more like an egg. And I saw an American family driving down a highway in a car that. . . They were setting facing one another, and had a table, and were, look like, playing checkers or cards. And they didn't have any steering wheel in the car. And it was controlled by some power without a steering wheel. How many remembers me prophesying that"? (COD, p. 923:17; The Boy Scouts of America Boy's Life Magazine, October 1990).


Mr. Death: the Rise and Fall of Fred A Leuchter Jr.
"Mr. Death" is a stylized documentary that deals with the life and work of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr., a US Federal Court qualified expert in execution technology. On the basis of his qualifications, in 1988 Leuchter was commissioned by German-Canadian publisher Ernst Zundel to conduct the first thorough forensic examination of the alleged Nazi gas chambers at Auschwitz and Birkenau in Poland. After Leuchter testified that the alleged facilities were not—and could not have been— used for mass extermination, Jewish activists ruined his life.

Leuchter comes across just as straightforward and guileless on film as he is in real life. As a result, some viewers of earlier versions at the Sundance Festival, the Toronto Film Festival and Harvard University began to question the Holocaust extermination stories they'd been told, while others suspected that Morris himself might have been converted to Holocaust revisionism. At the eleventh hour, Morris re-edited the film in an effort to emphasize his anti-revisionist point of view. Character assassination aside, the question remains as to whether or not Leuchter's findings regarding the alleged Nazi gas chambers at Auschwitz and Birkenau are correct. Full story: (1 hr. 31 mins).

Comment: Truth does not need prevarication! "Camp museum officials have downwardly revised the Auschwitz death toll from four million in 1945 to just over one million in 2005. According to Russian archives, the real number of inmates who died there was 73,137 and the gas chamber you see on show today was built in 1948 to back up the Shoah narrative, which stipulates a 'holocaust', meaning a 'burnt offering' as a sacrifice to their conception of God. . . The sacred number cannot be abnegated, for it is upon that Kabbalistic figure that the state of Israel derives its mystical, Judeo-Masonic justification." See


The Ruthless American Empire
March 14, 2008 – [W]hy has this country been instrumental in bringing down close to 50 governments of other nations? Why did we finance the overthrow of Hugo Chavez in 2002 only to see his people rise up and re-install him? Why is Hugo Chavez, a man that works for the poorest of his country, so savagely attacked by the Empire? The reason is because like Fidel Castro, he won't play the Washington game. He won't sell his nation's resources to the Empire for pennies on the dollar. Is he a threat to you? Is he a threat to any average American? The answer is obvious, but he is a threat to the multi-national oil cartel. The people controlling this Empire's government will tell you any number of lies to watch out for their interests.

Why are we fighting in Iraq? Were we ever afraid of Saddam? Give me a break. We are fighting over there to pay for Lockheed-Martin and all the other defense contractors' budgets. We are in Iraq to give the Empire military bases to control the Persian Gulf and to assert our presence to insure our interests. We care not for the people of Iraq, nor do we care for the soldiers that die on command. This is just another example of Empire at its most malicious. Killing, according to some estimates, over a million Iraqi's and almost 4,000 American soldiers that die on the ground, soldiers who died in the air on a medi-vac didn't make the count. We have destroyed their infrastructure and now pay Halliburton, Cheney's company, to put the country back together with no-bid contracts.

We threaten Iran with attack for having the audacity to build a nuclear power reactor. The Empire which once overthrew their infant democracy and re-installed the Shah, now tells the people of Iran what they can and cannot do. Meanwhile the Empire is selling nuclear secrets to India and Turkey and is the world's foremost owner of nuclear weaponry. How insane is this logic? . .

The Creation of God and His One Eternal Purpose - Part I

The Holy Bible is the story of God unfolding Himself or changing His form from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts—through faith in the spoken Word—to the manifestation of those thoughts in the flesh of His glorified Family, of whom Jesus Christ is firstborn.

The Logos and God: John 1:1-2, "In the beginning was the Logos, and the Logos was with God, and the Logos was God Himself. He existed in the beginning with God" — as His eternal thoughts, which are the Attributes of Himself.

What was God doing in eternity before material creation? As these two verses explain, God was thinking (Psalm 119:89). God was alone with His thoughts. Verse one reveals the Logos is eternal with God, did not "become" God but is God and therefore Divine, whereas verse two demonstrates the true Oneness—not twoness or threeness—of the godhead.

Let me ask you, "Are the thoughts of God eternal?" If you can see this, you will see many things. God is unchangeable in both essence and behavior. . . God is infinite in His abilities so therefore He as God must be omniscient. If He is omniscient, then He is not now learning, nor is He taking counsel even with Himself, nor is He at any time adding to His knowledge (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 149:3).

His thoughts are eternal and they are real and will come to pass in their designated and decreed season and time. A word is a thought when it is expressed and the Greek word Logos means "thought in speech," or concept. But God cannot speak without the faculty of reason, nor think without words in His mind, whether uttered or not, so before time began God was alone with the sum of all wisdom and knowledge—plus His eternal thoughts yet unexpressed in creation.

Proverbs 23:7, "As one thinks in his heart, so is he." Therefore God's thoughts are the Attributes of what He is, what He will be and what He will be understood to be. They are His glory. The unseen God began gathering glory to Himself by manifesting the Logos (John 17:5; I John 1:1-2). Were we able to look back to the beginning with eyes of Supernatural seeing we would see a small Light forming. God was giving birth to His Son. It was the visible manifestation of the Logos Ezekiel described as "the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord" or Shekinah.

Simultaneously material creation began to manifest ex nihilo as an immense fiery Sun was born, ejecting parts of itself into space to conceive the planets, stars and suns of countless galaxies as the Shekinah has divides and emptied itself (Gk. 'kenos') into God's children from the inauguration of Christ's Church on the day of Pentecost.

The Logos and the World: John 1:3, "Through Him everything came into being and nothing that exists came into being except through Him".

The Logos was from eternity and is the source of the beginning. If He did not have eternal existence before the beginning, there could have been no beginning (Colossians 1:16-19; Psalm 33:6). He was the Shekinah Light and glory of God that shone in the darkness of chaos, the principle that commanded order (Genesis 1:1-2).

The Logos and Mankind: John 1:4, "In Him is pure Life; and the Life was the Light of men".

God and the Logos are eternal Spirit, and as we read in Hebrews 7:3, "Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life. . ." Although it is true, when the Logos manifest as Light at creation God was giving birth to His Son. On the other hand "God is not a man, that He should lie; or a son of man, that He should change His mind (Malachi 3:6; Numbers 23:19), but Jesus was a Man "born of a virgin;" He had both father and mother, a time He began, and a time when He died. Now He is alive forevermore.

The key word to understanding Jesus Messiah and the great eternal Spirit is "manifestation." The Logos was from eternity and the fullness of the nature and character of God were manifest in that Man from Galilee. Colossians 2:9-10, "In Christ dwells all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And you are complete in Him, who is the Head of all principality and authority".

There is only one eternal, and that is God. If you have eternal Life you always were eternal as an Attribute of God in Christ the Logos, though not expressed until your designated and decreed season and time to act out or manifest the Word for your day (II Corinthians 3:1-5; Ephesians 1:4; Revelation 3:14). Whereas Jesus was given the Spirit in unlimited measure (John 3:34) to "declare" or unveil God in His Life and teachings, we have the Spirit by measure. So all of His Attributes God poured or transformed ('kenos') into Christ, and all Christ is He is pouring or transforming into the corporate Body of His Church. Thus the fullness of God's Attributes are manifest in the many membered Bride of all Ages as they are in our Head, the Lord Jesus Christ. And in the new heavens and new earth God will be worshipped throughout eternity in the form of His glorified Family, Jesus Christ and His Bride. Together, we are the hidden being of God manifest (I John 1:2).

The Logos and Sin: John 1:5, "His Life is the Light that shines through the darkness; and the darkness has never overpowered, extinguished, or comprehended the revelation."

Since Darkness has been unable to destroy the Life, it has also been unable to destroy the Light in the Life, thus the Light continues to shine from the beginning until now. The Light of Life overpowered the darkness and chaos to introduce order in the natural creation. But Darkness entered as the hostile counterpart of Light at the Fall when Eve was deceived by Lucifer's lie. As the Light is Truth, so the Darkness is falsehood (John 8:44), the positive perversion of the truth in delusion (II Thessalonians 2:10-12). Then the Logos was made flesh in "the beginning of God creating Himself" a part of the moral creation (Revelation 3:14) with the incarnation of the first God-Man, who overcome spiritual Darkness: "You shall know the Light of Truth and the Truth shall set you free."

Sinful man rejected the Light. In Romans 1:14-36 Paul explains how the mass of Gentiles as well as Israelites rejected the preparatory revelations of the Logos, and "the Light shining in Darkness." The reason is indicated in John 3:19-21, "This is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved Darkness rather than Light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that does evil hates the Light, neither comes to the Light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that does Truth comes to the Light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God".

The natural creation and the moral or Spiritual creation will be harmonised in a renewed heavens and renewed earth. There Darkness will be banished from the pyramid city of New Jerusalem which will be overshadowed by the Shekinah such that there will be eternal day.

In John 1:6-15, John the Baptist types the Old Testament revelation, which directly prepared the way for the Christian dispensation. His ministry introduced "the Son of God who was manifested to destroy the works of the Devil" (I John 3:8).

"There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came for a witness, to testify regarding the Light, that all might believe through him. He was not himself that Light, but came to bear witness to that Light. The true Light that illumines every man was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world came into being through Him, yet the world knew Him not. He came to His own, and His own received Him not. But to all who did receive Him, he granted authority to become the Sons of God, that is, to those who believe in His Name: who owe their birth neither to human blood, nor to physical urge, nor to human design, but to God. And the Logos became man, and lived for a time among us, and we saw His glory—such glory as an only son receives from his father—abounding in grace and truth. John testified about Him, and cried, This is the One of whom I said, 'He who comes after me ranks before me, for He was before me'."

Indeed He was; although John was six months his Cousins' senior, Jesus was the eternal God manifest in flesh (John 8:58). The Gospels of Matthew and Luke begin with Christ's incarnation in time, His human (Book of Life) generation and history, whereas John gives His eternal (Lamb's Book of Life) generation. (In the prophecy of Micah 5:2 concerning the "Ruler in Israel who would come out of Bethlehem, whose goings forth have been of old, from everlasting" we see both together). John rises above their Gospels in pointing out a Christological theocracy and the universality of the incarnate Logos, which by its one manifestation in Man born of woman, embraces time and eternity, heaven and earth, uniting Deity and humanity (II Corinthians 5:18; Colossians 3:10; Revelation 3:14).

The manifestation of Jehovah develops from the Tree of Life in the garden of Eden (Genesis 2:17; 3:8-24), to Melchisedek (Genesis 14:18; 18:1-33), to the Angel of the Lord (Genesis 16:7-9), later designated as the Angel of the Presence (Exodus 32:34; 33:14; Isaiah 63:9), and finally, the Angel of the Covenant. This Angel is the theophany of Christ as is evident especially from Malachi 3:1 as the Angel of the Covenant denotes Messiah. As the personal pre-manifestaton of Christ in the theophanies of the Logos, the Angel of the Lord is also characterized by His standing in the closest connection with the honour or glory of God (Luke 2:9); in fact being identified with it (Exodus 16:10; 24:16). It is all synthesised in Christ, and Christ is the Logos manifesting the fullness of the nature and character of God. God and His eternal thoughts are not two people or two gods any more than you and your thoughts are two persons. One is a sensible expression or visible manifestation of the invisible Other.

Laying aside the Law, which came four hundred and thirty years after and cannot invalidate a Covenant previously ratified by God, so as to annul His promise to Abraham (Genesis 12:1-3; Galatians 3:17), the development of the Old Testament idea of Jehovah manifest in Messiah separated the race of Cain from Adam's race in Genesis 3:15 and again in 9:25 and 15-19. Here He selected the Semitic line, later the clan of Eber from among whom He chose the family of Abraham and his seed through Isaac and Jacob, and particularly the tribe of Judah (49:10). This was further defined to the house of David, a type of Messiah (II Samuel 7:12-17), whose antitype would fulfil the qualifications of Isaiah 9.

As the idea of the revelation of Jehovah works toward incarnation, the idea of Messiah strives toward human union with the "divine nature" (John 1:14; II Peter 1:4); and the union is effected in Isaiah 9 where the ideal Messiah comes to view; the Messiah has become the Angel of the Lord (Isaiah 61:1-2), and the Angel of the Lord has become the Messiah (Daniel 7:13; Malachi 3:1).

With the words, "The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me," (Isaiah 61:1), the Subject of the prophecy attributes to Himself what Jehovah has declared of His Servant in Isaiah 42:1, "I have put My Spirit upon Him" and what had already been declared of the root of Jesse, "The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him" (Isaiah 11:1-2). The Servant of Jehovah is Messiah, the anointed One.

Since the idea of revelation is based on the development of redemption, so the Messiah, as personal revelation is also personal Redeemer. "By grace through faith are you saved." As such Messiah has to fight and conquer; to work and struggle; to suffer, and in sinking to overcome. From this point of view the Son of God is the Servant of God who will destroy the Edomite Jews and redeem the elect of Israel (Isaiah 63).

Brother Branham frequently referred to Isaiah 6, which was Isaiah's sole vision, a vision of our glorified Lord Jesus Christ and His Bride in theophany. The scene is set after the Church is finished, between Revelation 4 and 19. "In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple." Uzziah, meaning "my strength is Jehovah," ran well until his latter years when he sought to make himself high priest like the Egyptian kings, and so combine in himself all civil and religious power. When he attempted to burn incense in the holy place, the Lord smote him and he died of incurable leprosy. He types the Laodicean Church Age that commenced with the Azusa Street Revival and swept the world with revival meetings, signs and wonders, but was unable to receive the Word of correction and ended in apostasy to be followed by an earthquake as in the days of Uzziah (Amos 1:1; Zechariah 14:5).

Brother Branham said "His train" represents the angels who follow Him, and the angels in Revelation 5 are the theophanies of the glorified Bride of all Ages, for Isaiah, Ezekiel and John saw the same vision. Indeed, together with the Headstone we are God's Temple, and will be overshadowed by the Shekinah in the new heavens and new earth when "the whole earth is full of His glory" (Isaiah 6:3; 11:9; Habakkuk 2:14). Having claimed the Book they crown Him King of kings by revelation (Revelation 5:7-13). This is the commencement of the Bride Age or present holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the Pentecostal Feast. It is the "silence in heaven about the space of half an hour" (Revelation 8:1). (And as you can see, at the close of the Laodicean Church Age redemption was over as the Prophet explained in COD p. 846:Q195-196, because Christ's end-time Bride being predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word, does not require mediation; therefore she was fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary).

Isaiah's vision of the Lord Jesus and the Seraphim is parallel to Brother Branham's experience on Sunset Mountain where He was caught up into a pyramid constellation of the Seraphim which became the Supernatural Cloud, "high and lifted up," the sign of Christ's imminent parousia (Matthew 24:3). Or when John, who represents Christ's end-time Bride throughout the Book of Revelation, was caught up in the Spirit into the day of the Lord to see the heavenly transactions of Revelation 4 and 5. It was not the Holy of Holies of the earthly temple that Isaiah saw, for he was not a priest and it was veiled from all but the high priest; besides, he does not describe the Ark of the Covenant, which was certainly not "high and lifted up." His vision was of the heavenly temple which is the pattern for the Tabernacle and afterwards the temple.

The Seraphim were incense-burners and throne guards that come in closest proximity to the Lord, more intimate than the Cherubim or temple guards that symbolise the 144,000. I believe they are the heavenly representations of the seven earthly angels to the Church and perhaps Moses and Elijah. Their Voice shook the temple to its foundations as the Voice of the Seven Thunders shook heaven and earth spiritually (Hebrews 12:26; Revelation 10:1-4), and will do so physically when the earthquake sinks Los Angeles and Satan is cast down to earth (Revelation 12:7-16; 18:21-24). So the "heavenquake" that moved the sanctuary in Isaiah's vision has its counterpart with the earthquake at the end of the silence in heaven about the space of half an hour when the smoke of the revelation of the Seven Thunder mysteries added to the prayers of all of the New Testament saints ascends to God, and His judgments "smite the earth with a curse" (Revelation 8:1-5).

The heavenly temple has been "filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from His power" since Pentecost; "and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled" (Revelation 15:8). These bowls full of plagues poured out upon the non-elect church to distinguish the righteous from the unfaithful, mirror Israel's ordeal of jealousy. Smoke is the antithesis of Light; it signifies the severity of the wrath of God on a Christ-rejecting people and induces the consciousness of sin, mortal fear, and confession on the part of Isaiah. "Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts"—our Lord Jesus Christ.

John 12:35-41 refers to Isaiah's vision and says expressly Isaiah saw the glory of Jesus when He heard the Words of Isaiah 6:10. He accords with I Peter 1:11, which says, that the Spirit that moved on the Old Testament prophets was the Spirit of Christ; and with I Corinthians 10:4, which says it was Christ that as a Spiritual rock led Israel through the wilderness. "Jesus told the people, My Light will shine out for you just a little longer. Walk while you have the Light, so that the Darkness may not overtake you: for he who walks in darkness does not know where he goes. While you have the Light, put faith in the Light, that you may become Sons of the Light."

"When Jesus had said this, He departed and hid Himself from the people. In spite of all the miracles He had done in their presence, they put no faith in Him, in order that the saying of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, 'Lord, who has believed our Message? and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?' Therefore they could not believe, for again Isaiah said, 'He has blinded their eyes, and calloused their heart; so that they may neither see with their eyes nor perceive with their heart and turn to Me in repentance for Me to heal them'. Isaiah said this because he saw His glory and spoke of Him." Christ is the glory of God, and we, "His train," is the glory of Christ (Hebrews 1:3; I Corinthians 11:7).

(Before His ascent from the mount of Olives "Jesus opened the understanding of His disciples, that they might understand the Scriptures," so John knew what he was saying).

This passage is repeated in Matthew 13:13-15, Mark 4:11-12, and Luke 8:9-10 where it is applied to the fact that Jesus always spoke to the people in parables. Thereby the prophecy of Isaiah was fulfilled. God is known by revelation alone, not by a recitation of the "letter" of the prophets, at which the priests of Israel and rabbis of the Jews were proficient; or by a recitation of the "letter" of Brother Branham's quotes—"what the tapes say," which is equally deadly without the Spirit. Had Jesus not spoken in parables his hearers would have memory but not faith, and no condition of responsibility on their part. But by speaking in parables his discourse penetrated the hearts of those ordained to understand and made them responsible to manifest the understanding in their lives.

Brother Branham, whose ministry revealed Jesus Christ (Luke 17:28-30), said that like Jesus (Matthew 28:19; John 6:53), his Message was delivered in such a way as to sift and "thin down" the crowds. Israel could not believe in Jesus (Matthew 8:10; Luke 7:9). Regardless of the signs He did they were not susceptible to faith; neither could the Gentile denominations believe the revelation of the Son of man in Brother Branham's ministry. Finally, in Acts 28:25-26, Paul quoted this passage to prove the general insusceptibility of Israel to the preaching of the Gospel. Paul attributes the voice Isaiah heard as the Holy Ghost, demonstrating that the Holy Ghost is Christ as confirmed by John 14:15-27.

Isaiah never spoke the words we read in verse 9. This was God's commission to His prophet, which we might paraphrase, "Whatever you preach to this people, speak not in hopes of your Message being understood and regarded, but in the consciousness that your words will be neither understood nor regarded, and like Moses' Message to pharaoh, it will serve to completely unfold the hardness of heart that exists in them, and be a witness against them and basis of Judgment. There is therefore great consolation for Isaiah in this commandant, for he will see that his labour, rather than being vain, is fulfilling the expectation of the Lord.

Romans 11:32, II Thessalonians 2:1-13, II Timothy 3-4, and Revelation 3:17-20 confirm that Brother Branham's commission was to minister a Message that would sift an election from among professing believers (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:4) by the yardstick of God's unchanging Word (Malachi 4:4-6; Revelation 10:7; I Corinthians 13:10). His Message also brought an indictment: all who fail to receive it will be cast into the tribulation and judged (Malachi 4:6; Matthew 22:13; Luke 17:26-30; Acts 3:23; Revelation 22:10-19).

Isaiah 6:10, "Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed".

This announcement of the judgment of hardening sounds absolute, yet it is impossible that the Lord should forever reject His people, and abrogate the promises given to the fathers. Therefore Isaiah asks, "Lord, for how long will you harden Israel's heart to Your Word"? His answer is, until there is an entire desolation and depopulation of the land; and when at last only a tenth of the inhabitants is in the land, that tenth part also must be decimated until nothing is left but the stump of a root, that shall be the seed from which a holy remnant of 144,000 elect Israelites will be purged in the time of "Jacob's trouble" when they will recognize it was God, the Logos manifest in virgin-born flesh whom their forefathers crucified, not a second or third person (Isaiah 6:11-13; Malachi 3:13-18).

In the Word of God, therefore, God is first, and before all.

"THUS SAITH THE LORD, the King of Israel,
And His Redeemer the Lord of hosts:
I am the first, and I am the last;
And beside Me there is no God" (Isaiah 44:6).

"Hearken unto Me, O Jacob, and Israel My called;
I am He; I am the first, I also am the last.
My hand also has laid the foundation of the earth,
And My right hand has spanned the heavens" (Isaiah 48:12-13).

"THUS SAITH THE LORD, your Redeemer,
and He who formed you from the womb,
I am the Lord who makes all things;
Who stretched forth the heavens alone;
Who spread abroad the earth by Myself" (Isaiah 44:24).

"Before Me there was no God formed,
Neither shall there be after Me.
I, even, I, am the Lord;
And beside Me there is no Saviour" (Isaiah 43:10-11).

"I am Alpha and Omega,
The first and the last" (Revelation 1:11,17, 2:8, 22:13).

Thus Jehovah emphasizes this great foundation truth. All must be confusion where man refuses to recognised it. All must be peace where it is owned. The first is the only one. There cannot be two firsts or three as the Trinity would suppose. Man ignorantly speaks of the "two first," or the "three first," when he really means the first two, or the first three, etc. The Word of God does not thus ignorantly speak. He is the only one. He is first in priority of time. He is first in superiority of rank, and He is first in absolute supremacy.

Redemption and salvation began with God. His was the Word which first revealed it (Genesis 3:15). His was the will which first purposed it (Hebrews 10:7). His was the power that alone accomplished it. Hence "Salvation is of the Lord" (Exodus 14:13; II Chronicles 20:17; Jonah 2:9). His is the will from which it all proceeds. "Lo, I come to do Your will," said the Redeemer (Psalm 40:7-8; Hebrews 10:7) when He came to do that "will." The "will" is the Logos, and the Redeemer is the Logos manifest in virgin-born flesh.

Revelation 3:14, "To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: THUS SAITH THE AMEN, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God." Jesus gives us one final look at His own gracious and supreme Deity. This is the capstone revelation of Himself.

THUS SAITH THE "AMEN." Jesus is the Amen of God. Jesus is the "So Let It Be" of God. Amen stands for finality. It stands for approval. It stands for prevailing promise. It stands for unchanging promise. It stands for the seal of God. . . When the day of grace closes, then the millennium comes very shortly thereafter.

Regarding the Millennium Isaiah 65:16 says, "He who blesses himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth..." But the real translation is not "God of truth." It is "God of the AMEN". . . Here is Jehovah of the Old Testament, "the God of the Amen." Here is Jesus of the New Testament, "the God of the Amen." There it is again, the Jehovah of the Old Testament is the Jesus of the New. "Hear, Oh, Israel the Lord thy God is ONE God." The New Testament does not reveal ANOTHER God, it is a further revelation of ONE AND THE SAME GOD. Christ did not come down to make Himself known. He did not come to reveal the Son. He came to reveal and make known the Father. He never talked about two Gods; He talked about ONE God. And now in this last age, we have come back to the capstone revelation, the most important revelation of Godhead in the whole Bible, that is, JESUS IS GOD, HE AND THE FATHER ARE ONE: THERE IS ONE GOD, AND HIS NAME IS LORD JESUS CHRIST" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 331:4 - 333:2).

In these last days Christ's Bride has seen the Logos revealed in the Office of Son of man, performing the same signs and wonders in the ministry of William Branham as He did in the days of His flesh to awaken the sleeping virgin and call the wise into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. nl520.htm

There is a further 650MB of Christian resources accessible on-line, so do study the Teaching Sermons, transcripts of radio broadcasts, back issues of the Newsletters, books and articles on the Church Website to broaden the vision. And if our boolean search facility does not provide answers to your questions, do not hesitate to write.

"Vatican Agenda" by Israeli journalist Joel Bainerman in last week's Newsletter prompted a response from a reader with emails from two of his correspondents concerned to preserve Israeli sovereignty over the city of old Jerusalem. I believe you will find it useful to share my response (in part) as we witness Biblical prophecy coming to pass in the daily news:

There is nothing that can be done about this matter since it was prophesied in both Testaments. Mr. Olmert is cut from the same cloth as all of modern Israel's Prime Ministers. Israel's first Prime Minister, the terrorist David Ben Gurion, knew the plans of the World Revolutionary Movement. Interviewed by Look Magazine, (January 16, 1962), he disclosed: "With the exception of the USSR as a federal Eurasian State, all other continents will become united in a world alliance, at whose disposal will be an international police force. All armies will be abolished and there will be no more wars. In Jerusalem, the United Nations (a truly United Nations) will build a shrine of the prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; this will be the seat of the supreme court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents, as prophesied by Isaiah."

So you see, Brother, there was no "God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob" in the mind of those behind the theft of Palestine for the establishment of pseudo-Israel. It is a key part of establishing Lucifer's one world government, using what they regard as Biblical myths to harness the energies of so-called or self-styled Jews, Muslims, self-styled nominal Christians, Judaeo-Communism, unprincipled politicians who would sell their own mother were it to gain them popularity for a season, and all others for or against. (See Energy Crisis, or Free Energy? Its Your Choice!)

These people are all "useful idiots" working toward the realization of Lucifer's totalitarian one world government, and as the Jewish traitor F.D. Roosevelt said, "If something happens in politics, you can bet it was planned that way." And the people to whom you have written [prime ministers, presidents, mayors and other officials around the world] are themselves "useful idiots" in service to the same dynasties that have been planning Lucifer's totalitarian world government since the Fall in the garden of Eden.

The state of Israel was re-established in unbelief as part of the geopolitical strategy of non-Israelites whose objective is to rule Lucifer's totalitarian one world government. Both Testaments declare Israel will be ruled by a non-Semitic people unto the consummation, thus her citizens are predominantly non-Semitic self-styled Jews and usurpers, or Semitic Palestinians (Daniel 9:27; Luke 21:24; Revelation 11:2, 8). "But we know that all things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose," and however it happened, the state had to be restored because Israel's Covenant is of no effect outside the Promised Land. As the Hittites and Canaanites established the infrastructure for Israel's initial colonization, they have built the infrastructure for the return of Israel and Judah from the ancient Assyrian empire in Daniel's Seventieth Week for their redemption as prophesied in Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 50:4; Isaiah 11:11; Ezekiel 15-28; Hosea 3:5; Zechariah 10, etc.,

The restoration of Israel in 1948 was a sign warning of judgment to follow under the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet that will mark the end of the Gentile dispensation, the dawning of the Day of the Lord and the commencement of Daniel's Seventieth Week. This is also called "the time of Jacob's trouble" and the "great tribulation." It may be later than you think, because the end-time began when Christ opened the Seven Seals in March, 1963. This brought Him back to earth in WORD form "as a thief in the night" (I Corinthians 13:10). This was His second or 'parousia' Coming to us Gentiles.

Three world wars were all planned in the mid-nineteenth century. One of the objects of World War III, presently in its phoney stage, is to bring political Zionists and political Islam into controlled conflict in order to neuter and subjugate both. (World government cannot tolerate freedom of expression. See Protocol 11). Proxy forces of the political Zionists are killing innocent people and destroying national infrastructure around the globe whilst political Islam desires to live in peace, but as Emil Cohn wrote in The New Holy Alliance, (Strasburg, 1938): "Even if Hitler at the last moment would want to avoid war which would destroy him he will, in spite of his wishes, be compelled to wage war." Now war is being forced upon Islam.

What happens in Israel should be no business of our governments, whose duties and responsibilities should rest with their own people. Besides, they are controlled by the same evil power and working toward the same end. Israel has nothing to do with the Church or Christianity except inasmuch as it is revealed as God's "timepiece" in Daniel 9 and elsewhere.

Daniel 11:41, Zechariah 14:2 and Revelation 16:19 indicate Israel will ultimately be forsaken. You should recognize this from the guile of those who drafted the form of words of UN Resolution 181 mentioned in point 6B of Mr. Belman's email and in Mr. Israel Harel's article published in Ha'aretz. Israel's "do-nothing government" does nothing because they are a part of the plan (enunciated by Mr. David Ben Gurion above). Also, you should discern the hand of God in the extensive environs designated to Jerusalem. (The City of Jerusalem shall include the present municipality of Jerusalem plus the surrounding villages and towns, the most eastern of which shall be Abu Dis; the most southern, Bethlehem; the most western, ‘Ein Karim (including also the built-up area of Motsa); and the most northern Shu’fat). "For in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord has said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call" (Joel 2:32).

Ultimately, "all Israel" territorially is not necessary to God's plan, but Jerusalem "where also our Lord was crucified," is absolutely essential.

Zechariah 12:1-14, "This is the fate of Israel, as pronounced by the Lord, who daily stretches out the heavens, and lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him (by which to accomplish His purposes): I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling to all the nearby nations that send their armies to overrun Judah and besiege Jerusalem. In that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome boulder for the whole world: all who lift it up will be grievously injured. And although all the nations of the earth unite in an attempt to move her, they will all be crushed. . . In that day will I make the chiefs of Judah like a little fire that sets the forest aflame—like a torch of fire among the sheaves: they will burn up the neighbouring nations right and left, while Jerusalem stands unmoved. The Lord will give victory to the rest of Judah first, so that the inhabitants of Jerusalem and the royal line of David won't be filled with pride at their success. The Lord will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; the weakest among them will be as mighty as king David! And the royal line will be as God, like the angel of the Lord who goes before them. For My plan is to destroy all nations that come against Jerusalem. Then I will pour out the Spirit of grace and prayer upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and they will look on Him whom they have pierced, and mourn for Him as for an only son. . . "

The Vatican is one of the actors in this "great game," a play to use the political mass of superstitious Bible believers without faith to impersonate (but unbeknownst to themselves, fulfil) Bible prophecy and establish Lucifer's totalitarian one world government here on earth (Isaiah 14:12-15). At the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet, Lucifer will be cast out from heavenly places and incarnate the pope, Los Angeles and a huge segment of earth will sink beneath the Pacific, and the Mount of Olives will split, demolishing the dome of the Rock. Weeks later, Russia will attack and invade mainland USA. The pope will bring all of the world's religions into a federation (ostensibly to suppress Judaeo-Communism) and restore world peace. In return the nations will implore him to become the inaugural president of one world government.

God has raised up Communism to destroy the false church, just as He raised up Nebuchadnezzar to destroy His temple and Jerusalem, take the Judeans captive, and commence "the times of the Gentiles" or Gentile rule over Jerusalem, which will endure until the consummation of life on earth. Communism is a spirit God calls "Laodicea," and it rules all of our Hegelian sham democracies.

II Timothy 3:1-5, "In the Messianic age perilous times shall come. For men shall be . . . 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 power thereof: from such turn away".

The dynasties that rule this world have all of this in hand. And so does the Lord. As it is said, "Next year, Jerusalem"! So keep your lamp trimmed and full of oil, for soon "the door will be shut . . . as it was in the days of Noah".

Malta is Blackwater's Operational Base
March 16, 2008 – A European Parliament working document drawn up by Giovanni Claudio Fava has claimed "Malta is the operational base of Blackwater, the organiser of private military militia which are increasingly taking on more and more roles which used to be undertaken by US forces in Iraq and elsewhere".

American left-wing [emphasis ours] and anti-war media are in full cry about the underhand and subtle changes that have made Blackwater the new symbol of American claimed supremacy, carried out by forces other than the regular military. . . Full story:

Comment: Their connection with the Knights of Malta places Blackwater's hired guns and professional killers "outside the law and above the US Constitution." Despite the Second Amendment, there is a call to restrict private (non-mercenary) gun ownership. With this and Blackwater's Vatican connections in mind, their new base at Potrero, California, would appear to shine the Light on Revelation 12:13-17, and the sixth of Brother Branham's seven consecutive visions in 1933 which foretold the rise of a most beautiful, but cruel woman to power in America, and martial law (Revelation 13; 17; 18).


Albanian Arms Dump Blasts kill Five, Devastate Area
Tirana, March 15, 2008 – An Albanian army base stocking obsolete munitions for destruction blew up in a chain of massive blasts on Saturday killing at least five people and injuring more than 240. "This is not the final number of the dead, there might be others," Prime Minister Sali Berisha said in a televised news conference. "The search will resume at daylight because night has fallen and shells are still exploding". . . Full story:

Comment: Something to be expected when unwitting pawns of the 'hidden hand,' steal part of another country. Without a shadow of doubt, the Balkan war and the unlawful granting of independence to Kosovo were engineered as part of the NWO program to create hatred and division between Islam and the political Zionists to ensure the desired outcome of the controlled conflict of World War III. Across the Islamic world in particular, boundaries no longer matter. In such regions no aspect of sovereignty can now constrain a US president from acting in pursuit of whatever he may personally define as American interests.

The Bush administration has, so far, only been willing to carry out "decapitation" strikes in countries where human life is, by implication, of less or little value. It has yet to carry one out in London or Hamburg or Tokyo or Moscow or the Chinese countryside, even though "terrorist suspects" abound everywhere . . . given the impetus of this kind of globalization, who knows when such a strike might come. After all, the CIA has already carried out clearly illegal, sovereignty-violating "extraordinary rendition" operations (kidnappings of terror suspects) on the streets of European cities. . .

Derivatives the New 'Ticking Bomb'
March 10, 2008 – "Charlie and I believe Berkshire should be a fortress of financial strength" wrote Warren Buffett. That was five years before the subprime-credit meltdown.

"We try to be alert to any sort of mega-catastrophe risk, and that posture may make us unduly appreciative about the burgeoning quantities of long-term derivatives contracts and the massive amount of uncollateralized receivables that are growing alongside. In our view, however, derivatives are financial weapons of mass destruction, carrying dangers that, while now latent, are potentially lethal". . .

The fact is, derivatives have become the world's biggest "black market," exceeding the illicit traffic in stuff like arms, drugs, alcohol, gambling, cigarettes, stolen art and pirated movies. Why? Because like all black markets, derivatives are a perfect way of getting rich while avoiding taxes and government regulations. And in today's slowdown, plus a volatile global market, Wall Street knows derivatives remain a lucrative business.

Recently Pimco's bond fund king Bill Gross said "What we are witnessing is essentially the breakdown of our modern-day banking system, a complex of leveraged lending so hard to understand . . . not only Warren Buffett, but Bond King Bill Gross, our Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, the Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and the rest of America's leaders can't "figure out" the world's $516 trillion derivatives.

Why? Gross says we are creating a new "shadow banking system." Derivatives are now not just risk management tools. As Gross and others see it, the real problem is that derivatives are now a new way of creating money outside the normal central bank liquidity rules. How? Because they're private contracts between two companies or institutions.

BIS is primarily a records-keeper, a toothless tiger that merely collects data giving a legitimacy and false sense of security to this chaotic "shadow banking system" that has become the world's biggest "black market."

That's crucial, folks. Why? Because central banks require reserves like stock brokers require margins, something backing up the transaction. Derivatives don't. They're not "real money." They're paper promises closer to "Monopoly" money than real US dollars. . . Full story:


Venezuela switches to Euros for Oil
Caracas, March 16, 2008 – Venezuelan state oil giant PDVSA has decided to sign some oil contracts in euros in the face of a plummeting dollar, local media reported, citing officials. . . Venezuela produces 3.3 million barrels of oil a day, according to official figures, and 2.4 million according to the International Energy Agency. Half of its production is sold to the United States market. Full story:

Comment: Venezuela should ask the US to pay for oil purchases in Euros as Israel asked for its $3 billion US aid to be paid in Euros.


Argentina, Brazil to drop Dollar in Commercial Dealings
Buenos Aires, March 15 – Argentina and Brazil are to scrap bilateral commercial transactions in US dollars and start using their own currencies from August . . . Brazil is Argentina's largest trading partner, while Argentina is Brazil's second-biggest trading partner after the United States. Bilateral trade stood at around 23.6 billion US dollars last year.

Death Treaty now in Force
March 14, 2008 – On 3rd December 2007, as his first official act of government, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd signed the Kyoto Protocol; now, 90 days later, Australia is officially subject to that genocidal monstrosity, and its devastating assault on agriculture and industry will only accelerate the present global economic collapse.

In April 2004, Andrei Illarionov, economic advisor to Russian President, Vladimir Putin, slammed the Kyoto Protocol as a "death treaty" which will impose such strong economic constraints that it will be like an "international Auschwitz."

The mainstream media, a key asset of the British financial oligarchy pushing this "international Auschwitz," has been quick to trumpet Rudd's ratification of the Kyoto Protocol. They also gloated when mining boss and Rio Tinto frontman, Ross Garnaut released his interim report on climate change last month, in which he demanded that "firm commitments" be made immediately in 2008 for "major reductions in emissions," where an emissions trading scheme (ETS) would be "the centre-piece of a domestic mitigation strategy." This proposed trading scheme, if implemented, won't stop pollution, but will be one of the biggest financial swindles to ever be pushed onto an unwitting population.

Garnaut admits, "an ETS with ambitious mitigation objectives will be difficult and will make heavy demands on scarce economic and finite political resources" which is a clear indication that economic collapse is actually intended. [Emphasis ours].

Australians suffering from amnesia should note that this is not the first time Ross Garnaut has directed major economic reforms for our economy. Garnaut, currently Chairman of Lihir Gold, a director of Ok Tedi Mining, and the head of the International Advisory Group which recommended that Papua New Guinea sell off ("privatise") its staggering raw materials wealth to the British-owned global minerals cartel, was one of the most influential economists advising the Hawke-Keating administration. His economic prescription of floating the currency, removing trade barriers and liberalising banking regulations, have led to the economic crisis which we face today, where manufacturers and farmers are a dying species and banks are set to foreclose on hundreds of thousands of homeowners this year. In the face of this genocidal insanity, the Australian media has conveniently ignored The 2008 International Conference on Climate Change, held on March 2-4 in New York, where hundreds of delegates including many of the world’s top climate scientists, exposed the IPCC lies and the global warming hoax. Likewise, our media ignored a US Senate report last December, where over 400 prominent scientists were extensively quoted, disputing claims of man-made global warming, including even IPCC Vice Chairman, Prof Yuri Izrael who has stated, "there is no serious threat to the climate."

The Deployment of US Troops inside Canada
March 13, 2008 – While a formal agreement was reached in February 2008, the decision to allow the deployment of US troops in Canada was announced in April 2002 by (former) Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Territorial control over Canada is part of Washington's geopolitical and military agenda as formulated in April 2002 by Donald Rumsfeld. "Binational integration" of military command structures was also contemplated alongside a major revamping in the areas of immigration, law enforcement and intelligence.

The matter has been known for more than five years. It has been deliberately obfuscated. There has been no public debate. It has not received news coverage nor has it been the object of discussion in the Canadian House of Commons or the US Congress. In an article published in 2004 entitled Is the Annexation of Canada Part of Bush's Military Agenda?, I provided a detailed analysis of the process of integration of military command structures. I also examined the broader issue of sovereignty. . . Despite repeated assurances by the Toronto Star OpEd Editor, the article never appeared in print. . .

Secretive Freemasons open Royal Lodge at Buckingham Palace
March 10, 2008 – A branch of the Freemasons secret society is being formed by members of the Royal Household and police who protect the Royal Family. And their decision to call it The Royal Household Lodge has put them on a collision course with Buckingham Palace—as has their plan to co-opt the royal cipher—EIIR—for their regalia, to underline their connection to the Queen. . .

The United Grand Lodge of England issued the Royal Household Lodge with a warrant in June last year although it will not formally exist until the consecration ceremony on May 19 at the Freemasons’ Hall in London. Full story:


Solid Light
March 15, 2006 – Solid light describes a method of obtaining a phase transition in light. At a critical point light crystallises. This form of light was not predicted! It is a new exotic state for light. Despite some precursor experiments, the idea is to create a system where this effect can be observed. This would consist of a trap where a single photon reacts with a single atom. You have these photons which presumably are travelling at the speed of light because they are light, and I'd imagine the crystals are not travelling very fast and they're sitting there, so what happens to the energy?

Redemption is Over

Brother Branham opened our understanding to a wonderful revelation when He expounded Ephesians 4:30, "Grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby you are sealed till the day that the Book of Redemption has been revealed, and the Redeemer comes to claim His possession".

Redemption ended in 1963 when Christ claimed His possession and revealed its contents (Revelation 4, 5, 10:1-7). The Book of Redemption is the inheritance of the last Adam. It records the names of His redeemed sons: the elect who constitute the Lamb's Book of Life and the non-elect who remain in the Book of Life. Jesus Christ died to redeem this Book which is the Title Deed to everything forfeited by the first Adam. As Christ's Bride, the New Testament Church is joint heir with the last Adam, Jesus Christ.

Only in the sense that Christ is not yet revealed to certain elect still dozing under denominational delusions could one imply that redemption is ongoing. These will soon awake, but unlike the Church Age saints, they were all redeemed in Christ on Calvary. Read on.

The majority of mankind, being in the lineage of Cain, are not of Adam's race and therefore not in the Book of Life which is Adam's genealogy. Cain and his race are not God's spoken Word expressed, not "Spirit and Life," but a hybrid between the Serpent and Eve with no part in redemption.

The word "redeem" means to "buy back." As the Serpent seed line of Cain are not God's creative thoughts, they have no part in Him and are born "lost." The Serpent is God's spoken Word and will be in the Millennium and in the new heavens and new earth, but in his present reptilian form not his original upright man-like frame. Neither Cain's serpent seed lineage nor any other hybrid species such as the mule will be present.

Only lack of revelation can explain why those in Message circles invest scarce time and resources ministering to and trying to convert the Serpent's seed. Jesus was the last Adam; He was not the last Cain. When He died to redeem the first Adam who is the Book of Life, He potentially redeemed all of Adam's seed.

Cain was never in the Book of Life. Neither are any of his descendants—whole ethnic groups are excluded from the Book of Life (Genesis 10:15-19). Adam's children who marry a Serpent seed partner commit genocide as any offspring will not be on the Book of Life . . . ever. Satan knows this, which is why his people promote racial mixing.

Because of miscegenation between the races of Adam and Cain, God destroyed all life by the Great Flood. Jesus said these deplorable consequences would repeat in the time of His 'parousia,' which began in 1963 (Genesis 6:1-4; Matthew 24:37). This accursed hybreeding of God's manifested Word—from Spirit and life to Death—is disguised and promoted as "multiculturalism" (Genesis 1:11; John 6:63; Revelation 22:18-19). God separated the nations and set enmity between the races of Adam and Cain (Deuteronomy 32:8; Genesis 3:15). That enmity is extant, thus multiculturalism is accursed of God.

Few who call upon the lovely Name of the Lord Jesus Christ seem to realize the distinction between the "saved" and the "born-again." Everyone in Adam's race is born "saved" from his mother's womb because his name was placed on the Book of Life from the foundation of the world (Revelation 17:8). Jesus was the Kinsman Redeemer for Adam's entire race regardless how sinful the parents, the circumstances of their conception or whether their society worships demons and eats human flesh. Provided a baby is born in Adam's race, his name is on the Book of Life and he is therefore born "saved" from his mother's womb (John 1:29; I John 2:2). If he or she was not on the Book of Life from the foundation of the world they are not in Adam's race and were born "lost." Christ was not crucified for them in God's foreknowledge from the foundation of the world since He is not their Kinsman, and cannot redeem them.

Babies (not the still-born) and children who die before the age of accountability are "saved" so long as they are in Adam's race; likewise adults who never heard the Good News of Jesus Christ but lived all the righteousness they knew naturally (Romans 1:19-20). Every one whose name remains in the Book of Life is "saved" and will be granted into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment.

You cannot read the Bible or listen to a sermon and "get saved." Everyone in Adam's race is born "saved" but with liberty to choose whether to receive God and live by His every Word, or follow the desires of their own hearts and chance losing the salvation Jesus has already purchased for them.

God is long suffering and gracious, not desiring that any of Adam's race should perish, excusing a multitude of sins in each of us. But sinners who exhaust God's patience and spurn His mercy, having rejected the revealed Word once too often, will come to a time of no more repentance. Their names are then removed from the Book of Life and they are irrevocably lost.

So long as your name is in the Book of Life, you are "saved" and will be judged by the saints and granted into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment following the Millennium and the general resurrection.

Your service to God and duty to yourself is to recognize the Gift He has already provided and to secure your salvation by advancing in the faith through Justification by grace confirmed by Scriptural water baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, to Sanctification: amending your ways to conform to God's standard of Scriptural holiness, to the baptism with the Holy Spirit which is the new birth whereby you hear your name called from the Lamb's Book of Life when you recognize the present Truth—what Jesus is doing now—and become a written epistle of that part of the Word.

Only when you have been born-again are you a Christian with "eternal security," knowing that your name was inscribed in the Lamb's Book of Life from the foundation of the world and cannot under any circumstance be erased. This Book is the genealogy of Jesus Christ and records the names of all who will be born the second time. Once born-again you are Spiritually redeemed and sealed to the day of your redemption. You can never be lost and are joint heirs with Jesus Christ by His eternal Life in your soul.

The evidence of the baptism with the Holy Ghost is hearing, recognizing, and acting on the revealed Word of God for your day: recognizing your day and becoming a written epistle of its Message. This is best illustrated if we paraphrase I John 1:7, "Unless your life is manifesting the Word Jesus promised He would fulfill in this day, you are not and cannot come under the Blood (or be born-again), nor share true Spiritual fellowship with those who are Christians".

According to Jesus the evidence of the new birth is that "the Holy Spirit will guide you into all the truth revealed for your day. You may discern whether the inspiration is from the Holy Spirit or from your own spirit reasoning private ideas and interpretations, because whatever He says will be Bible doctrine (from Genesis to Revelation) and He will unfold Scriptures to come to fulfillment in your dispensation. Thus He will glorify God by drawing upon His Word and revealing it to you" (John 16:13-14).

Throughout the New Testament, the evidence of the new birth is "hearing" not speaking what the Holy Spirit is saying to commend and correct the elect Church—or condemn the nominal church (Acts 2:66; 4:4; 10:44-48; Romans 10:14-18; Revelation 2:7).

When Jesus died His mortal Spirit expired, but His soul in union with the Holy Spirit descended to the realm of the departed and preached to sinners, vindicating the Message of the former prophets who pointed to their Redeemer. Early on the third day, Jesus re-entered and glorified His embalmed body in Joseph of Arimathaea's tomb. In this form He encountered Mary Magdalene (John 20:11-18), bidding her not to touch Him lest she defile the sacrifice. He then ascended to present Himself to His Father and to cleanse the heavenly sanctuary of the unremitted sins of the Old Testament saints with His atoning Blood. Following Old Testament shadows and types, He sprinkled the Mercy Seat above the Ark between the Cherubim seven times with His Own Blood, once for each of the seven Church Ages.

Next He descended and made captives of eternal Life the saints held captive in death. These entered into His resurrection and appeared to many of the devout in old Jerusalem to attend the compulsory feasts of Unleavened Bread and Pentecost, under the blood of the Passover Lamb, which had become Jesus Christ (Ephesians 4:8; Matthew 27:52-53). These would become New Testament saints.

The Church was founded on the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was given to inaugurate the many-membered Body of Christ as God's new, permanent and final Temple, made not with hands but by His spoken Word (Matthew 11:25-30; Acts 7:48-50; Ephesians 2:21-22; Hebrews 10:5; Revelation 21:3).

Since Daniel and John had been commanded to seal their common vision and prophecy unto the time of the end (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:1-4), only PART-Word was revealed to the saints predestinated to Pentecost and the seven Church Ages. On this account the Holy Spirit came to them in the Office of Son of God or advocate (Gk. 'parakletos') to plead before God in behalf of their ignorance of the full Word so long as the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals.

Christ was Mediator, arbitrator or intercessor between two parties to a contract written in His Own Blood—the New Covenant or Testament between God and His elect (Revelation 1:5). His function from the day of Pentecost to the end of the seventh Church Age was to restore peace and agreement between the PART-Word saints and God, the Word.

Christ was only a Mediator for His elect, not for unbelievers, but for those who were called and chosen by His foreknowledge of their choosing to become party to the Contract. But since they had only PART-Word, they were in error and at variance with God the Word and required the advocacy of a go-between or impartial Mediator acceptable to Him. Clearly then, for seven out of seven Church Ages the Church has been believing and teaching error, otherwise Christ would never have been a Mediator.

Aaron was Christ's type: he was high priest or intercessor only for those called of God and following THUS SAITH THE LORD for their day by His prophet Moses. He was not a mediator for the Egyptians, Moabites, Canaanites, or the mixed multitude who followed Israel out of Egypt. Likewise, Christ was a Mediator ONLY for God's elect, making it possible for them to be born-again despite their errors and contradictions of His Word.

God did not expect the saints to understand all of His Word in one dispensation. He revealed a little here, revealed further understanding there, and so-on through the Ages (Isaiah 28:9-13). Although the Church of all Ages is One Body, it was born in relative ignorance before God had expounded and proven the Covenant through Paul and the ancient prophets by Old Testament shadows and types. And although the faith was delivered to the early saints, God hid many secrets within His Word which even the ancient prophets could not understand as they did not pertain to their Age (I Peter 1:10-13).

As the Christian assemblies grew in number and membership they diminished in exclusivity as many who joined themselves were not elect. Standards of holiness relaxed, compromise crept into the teachings, and the election shrunk as the nominal church grew through the first three Ages. Then in AD325 the nominal majority gathered under state patronage at the First Nicea Council where they organized the Roman Catholic system of worship, and introduced the pagan Trinity doctrine with its false baptism in three Titles. Then over the next thousand years they persecuted the saints, killing all who refused to worship their Trinity of gods or receive their false water baptism.

The last three Church Ages embodied the Reformation of the Roman Catholic system of worship. Following the Thyatira Church Age or Dark Ages, God raised up great teachers who expounded the Bible and protested the blasphemy and corruption of Rome. Sadly they did not return the Church to Pentecost and the only doctrine Jesus recognizes as His Own. Thus the reformers perpetuated Roman error. Nevertheless, they were powerfully used of the Lord and it was not yet time for restoration: the Bible would stay sealed until Christ had completed His mediation and the last saint predestinated to the Church Ages was born-again in Laodicea. He would then reveal the Seven Seals through a prophet and restore the Church back to the apostolic faith.

Knowing all things, God did not require perfect understanding from the Church Age saints as Christ's mediation made allowance for their ignorance. He received their faith in the Word revealed for their day and He placed their errors and ignorance under the atoning Blood which is the sea of God's forgetfulness where the sins of the Bride Age saints and the 144,000 elect Israelites have been since Calvary. Please read that once again . . . and again.

After Jesus' assumption into heaven His body lay as a memorial on the altar of sacrifice and throughout the Church Ages, for He was "the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world." So long as those seven stripes of Blood were present on the Ark it was a Mercy Seat, and Christ was a Mediator until the last saint predestinated to the PART-Word divisions of the Body came under that seventh stripe of Blood or was born-again in the Laodicean Church Age.

Once that soul was baptized into the Body, the Church Ages were over, and the sevenfold Spirit of God that had anointed the seven "angels" to the Church—Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Luther, Wesley and Branham—ascended from Earth and stood before the throne or Ark of God encompassed by the Cherubim in the heavenly tabernacle, reporting that Christ's ministry of Mediation is fulfilled and redemption is over. This was no longer a throne of Mercy, and instead of the Blood, an angry God sat upon the throne from which proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices (Revelation 4:5). It was now the throne of Judgment.

The Church Ages were the time of Christ's justification of the PART-Word saints by receiving their faith in the Word for their Age and extending grace by pardoning their ignorance of the fulness of the Word. Now it is time for redemption to be revealed to the end-time Bride of Christ—how the saints were redeemed in each of the PART-Word dispensations, and who they were in each Age. In other words, how the mystery of God was revealed in Jesus Christ, and how Christ was revealed in His Body, the elect Church. These mysteries hidden under the Seven Seals are revealed "in the days of the voice of the angel to the Seventh Church Age" . . . after that Age had ended . . . in this fiftieth day or holy convocation of the Pentecostal feast.

The Gentile dispensation has within it nine separate dispensations defined by nine distinct baptisms of the Holy Spirit or new births. The fullness of the Word delivered to the apostolic saints was sealed with Seven Seals. The Seven Church Ages that followed were determined by seven different portions of the Word. Seven baptisms of the Holy Ghost or sabbaths. Finally the revelation of the Seven Seals restored the apostolic faith and finished the mystery of God to quicken the saints of this Capstone or Bride Age by the fullness of the Word (Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:7).

Whilst the Book was sealed, the saints were born-again by becoming written epistles of the PART-Word revealed for their day. And in each Age the saints displayed a distinct nature as we explained in The Stature of the Perfect Man, a teaching sermon linked to Newsletter #146 explaining how God added faith, virtue, knowledge, and so-on, to endue the Body with His Divine nature (II Peter 1:1-12).

The elders advertised for a Kinsman Redeemer and one of them motioned to John (who throughout the Book of Revelation represents the end-time Bride who will not see physical death), "Behold the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Root of David has prevailed to open the Book, and to loose the Seven Seals" (Revelation 5:5). Turning to see the Lion, we behold the bleeding, bloody Lamb coming from the sacrifice altar where He has been through His centuries of intercession.

When the Lamb left the sacrifice altar, the Blood left the Mercy Seat; redemption was over and the Mercy Seat became a Judgment Seat. Let me repeat, when the Blood left the Mercy Seat it became a Judgment Seat; the Lamb had left the sacrifice altar and redemption was over (Hebrews 9:22). The redemption of mankind ended (past tense) in 1963. The sacrificial Lamb of God became the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.

Christ is not a Mediator today, He is King of Kings and Judge. He has not been a Mediator since He came forward and claimed the Book of Redemption in 1963. Our Messenger is not William Branham or any of the seven earthly angels but "another Mighty Angel Who came down from heaven clothed in a Cloud with the rainbow over His head and the Book of Redemption open in His hand." Our Angel is Christ Himself, the Angel of the Covenant (Revelation 10:1-6).

Mercy is over outside the fullness of the Word because Christ is no longer a Mediator, He is the Judge, and the Fullness of the Word requires no mediation as it is wholly God. The Word has descended for the space of half an hour to unite with His Bride and indict the world (Jude 14-15). After the Word is revealed to the 144,000 elect Israelites it will smite the nations in Armageddon and rule with a rod of iron at the White Throne Judgment following the Millennium (Revelation 19:11-15).

The revelation of the six written Seals was the Seventh Seal and the Coming of the Lord with ten thousands of His saints. The fullness of the Word in that unseen substance called faith. What are these mystic lights they call UFO's? Investigating judgment angels! It's the dimensions breaking into one another as we approach the first resurrection and translation of the living Bride. When Satan and his demons are cast out in the next cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary, judgment and the Tribulation plagues will follow them down to Earth.

Christ was never a Mediator for the non-elect. The presence of the Bride on Earth enables God's blessings upon them as they honor His Word—written, or manifested in His saints. The non-elect were not "saved" by virtue of His Blood on the Mercy Seat, but being born into Adam's race, their names are on the Book of Life and while they remain, they are "saved".

The saints prayers for intercession could only be received while the Blood was on the sacrifice Altar and upon the Mercy Seat. Without that Blood, their prayers could not ascend to God, for until the Seven Seals were revealed the Blood was the evidence of their atonement. Since "that which is perfect has come" the evidence or Token of our atonement is the Life of Christ on display in our lives. So it is essential that we have the Token on display at all times.

Christ's pattern and type was Israel's high priest who stood before the golden Altar of incense and offered the prayers of the saints after the evening sacrifice. The sum of the prayers of the PART-Word Bride were presented to our High Priest after He had received the evening sacrifice of His Word written by faith in the lives of the Bride of all Ages represented by the Lamb's Book of Life (Revelation 5:7-8). After opening and revealing the mystery of the Seven Seals He offered up the prayers of the PART-Word saints for full redemption with "much incense" of the revelation given to perfect His end-time Bride. We are one Body and without us they cannot be made perfect or glorified (I Corinthians 13:10; Hebrews 11:39-40; Revelation 8:1-4). Our offering of His "Light in the evening time" does not require mediation (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:27-28; Revelation 10:7-11).

Jesus Christ claimed His Own throne (Earth) and His redeemed subjects (for the resurrection). The Book is His Title Deed. Right now He is separating His end time Bride from the harlot and her daughter churches by the revelations of this Book.

Christ's end-time Bride and the 144,000 Israelites require no intercession for redemption, nor do we require Blood on the Altar or the Mercy Seat as we were redeemed in Christ on Calvary. Christ did not need to mediate for us as we present God with "that which is perfect," the fullness of the Word which is Christ Himself. And Christ is already accepted.

This explains why the Prophet said, "the Church goes up after the third Chapter of Revelation and does not reappear until the nineteenth." Christ's mediation for the PART-Word saints was fulfilled at the close of the Laodicean Church Age in March, 1963 (Revelation 3:22). His end-time Bride was fully redeemed 2,000 years ago in Christ on Calvary (although we were ignorant of this fact until the revelation of the seven thunders). So when He finished mediating for the last saint predestinated to Laodicea, His whole Body was completely redeemed.

This also explains how all the redeemed of all ages were already gathered in worship around the Throne that day in March, 1963, when Christ claimed the Book and opened the Seven Seals (Revelation 5:8-14). Some of us were not conceived in our mother's womb, and not one of us was born-again. Yet we were all present on that day because His end-time Bride was already redeemed in Christ on Calvary. Indeed, we are His eternal Attributes in the Logos, which is Christ, who is God, and by foreknowledge we were crucified in Him when He was slain before the foundation of the world.

If you can see all of these things, rejoice! Thank God you are "in"! And recognize this is the "relaxing time" of the Holy Convocation or fiftieth day of the Pentecostal Feast under the Seventh Seal where all "work" has been done. We have THUS SAITH THE LORD by a vindicated prophet and bask in the S_O_N Light of the Message, ripening, until all greenness and error is gone from us, and we are mature with the Token on display, ready for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the Translation. nl147.htm bb001129.htm (revised).

Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Man, Son of David

Bible Believers' Newsletter #518
"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.

In a week in which a censored Pentagon Report confirms George II and his Administration lied to justify a case for colonies of the City of London to attack Iraq, as former Administrations lied in order to justify aggression against Vietnam, it seems appropriate that we read II Timothy 3-4.

Paul foretold that in the Messianic age, "perilous times shall come, for people will love only themselves and money; they will be proud and boastful, sneering at God, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, inhuman, implacable, slanderers, profligates, fierce, haters of those who are good; treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; holding a form of religion but strangers to its power. From such turn away!"

He went on to describe the false ministry "who worm their way into people's houses and captivate idle women laden with sins and swayed by all manner of impulses, forever following new teachers and never able to reach a knowledge of the Truth. As Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these men resist the Truth, men of corrupt mind and counterfeit faith. However, they will not go far, for their folly will be obvious to everyone, as was the sin of Jannes and Jambres".

Paul outlined some of his trials since becoming a Christian and concluded, "All who will live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. . . the time is coming when men will not endure sound doctrine, but to satisfy their own desires they will gather teachers who tickle their ears, and turn away from the Truth to fables".

This came to pass when the Laodicean Age ended and Brother Branham's 'third pull' commenced (Revelation 3:17-20). In this Newsletter we will further define Christ's major offices, and what Jesus is doing now!

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


Vatican Agenda
For centuries the Vatican has been pushing its "replacement" doctrine which states that the Catholic church has replaced Israel as "the New Israel". . . That deal to have the Vatican come into Israel and take over these properties and to "control and dominate the Old City of Jerusalem" already exists and has been fully documented and reported in the world's media.

The end goal of the Vatican is to seize control of the Old City of Jerusalem out of the clutches of the state of Israel. To that end they have a secret agreement with Israel which obliges Israel to respect the "extraterritorial" claim to their physical presence in the city. . . There is ample proof in the public record to prove that a secret deal was done with the Vatican by two Israeli government representatives, Yossi Beilin and Shimon Peres. . . Full story:


Still Unanswered 9/11 Miracles
February 19, 2008 – Americans are not quite ready to look into the Pandora's Box of 9/11 because the implications are truly breathtaking and staggering but as each shocking abuse of power of the Cheney/Bush regime is revealed to America ~ the public becomes more open to the possibility of a monstrous deception beneath the unanswered 9/11 miracles.

If one accepts the "Official Version" of the events that occurred on 9/11 or in the days leading up to it, one must conclude that a series of miracles occurred ~ suggesting factitiously the hand of higher powers. . . Full story:

Scientists disclaim Role of CO2 in Global Warming
March 8, 2008 – The 2008 International Conference on Climate Change held in New York City March 2-4 was attended by an impressive list of over 500 people. . . at most 52 scientists wrote the IPPC’s report, of which only 4 or 5 endorsed its highly politicized findings. Yet, the IPCC repeatedly gives the impression that hundreds, if not thousands of scientists endorse their conclusions. This is completely false. While many other scientists do endorse it, it is certainly not a consensus. Compared to this, every one of the 23 NIPCC’s scientists and economists who authored the report released at the conference endorsed it. Likewise, most, if not all, the 100 scientists at the conference endorsed the NIPCC’s conclusions. . .

There was an undercurrent during the conference about the sun that was hinted at during many of the talks. The sun should have entered Solar Cycle 24 in 2007, when it becomes much more active, but is so far dead quiet. This hasn't been seen since the 17th and 18th centuries during what is called the little ice age. The temperature dropped several degrees during that time and was accompanied by crop losses, famine and pestilence. Thankfully, no one expects it to get that bad, but we could be entering another cooling cycle, like what occurred between 1945 and 1975. Both the southern and northern hemisphere’s have had the coldest winter in decades, and in some regions this winter has broken all records. . .

Although it is far too early to say with any certainty what will happen, the prospect terrifies the global warming alarmists. They have long known that it could happen and is probably behind why the alarmists have changed the name from man-caused global warming to man-caused climate change for the past several years. That way, no matter what happens, the alarmists can try to convince the world that man is still at the root of the problem and we must turn to global governance to save the world. Hopefully, the world will see through the scam. Full story:

"Future dangers will not come from the same source [communism]. The ideology will be different. Its essence [climate alarmism and environmentalism] will, nevertheless, be identical—the attractive, pathetic, at first sight noble idea that transcends the individual in the name of common good, and the enormous self-confidence on the side of its proponents about their right to sacrifice the man and his freedom in order to make this idea a reality". . .

Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Man, Son of David

There is a dearth of righteousness in the world: greed and self-seeking rather than service and the commonweal are the motivation of too many public faces, laws are framed to favor the guilty; morals are perverted; churches are apostate and know it not; there is no certainty even in preparing for a career as knowledge is often redundant as it is being taught and employment opportunities may be expatriated tomorrow. Material security is threatened as inflation, predicted to become hyperinflation, devalues fiat currencies and depression threatens to devalue real property. Instead of measures to protect the commonweal, our puppet governments strive to preserve banking interests whose fraudulent fractional reserve system is the root of all evil. Society has rejected the Absolute, their only constant" seems to be more change. Isaiah said, "When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him." In this gloomy hour in which there is no clear distinction between day and night, right or wrong, in either church or society, God sent the certain Light of THUS SAITH THE LORD in the evening time (Zechariah 14:7).

We are at the end of the Gentile dispensation—no one will be "saved" during the tribulation. Jesus said when the Seven Seals were opened there would be no further delay for intercession as all seven Church Ages of PART Word would be fulfilled (Matthew 25:1-13; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 10:6; 18:4). Let us have our lamps trimmed and filled with oil so we can see where we are walking in the Word. In response to the midnight cry of Malachi 4:5-6 all ten virgins will "come out" of Rome and her harlot (once) Protestant daughters, whose destiny is the lake of Fire (Revelation 2:21-23; 19:20; 20:5, 10, 15). All ten virgins are "saved"; the five wise are born again and will be translated before the tribulation while the "foolish" will be cast into "outer darkness" but granted into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment. The elect 144,000 of Israel were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary.

Luke 17:30: "As it was in the days of Lot, so will it be in the day when the Son of man is being revealed." To reveal is to make known a secret, and Jesus promised the mystery of God should be finished by the Seventh Angel's Message, to call His Bride out of Babylon. Not in the days of Luther's Message, or Wesley's, or what the Pentecostals had (which was only the restoration of the Gifts). However, at every dispensation change the majority is so bound up in church traditions it is impossible for them to recognize the Light for the new Age, being convinced that their tradition has all of God. It has always been that way and only the elect minority will see it. Paul saw this at the very start of the age of grace, and said that, as a nation, Israel was blind spiritually, but that a remnant of individuals, according to the election of grace, would catch the revelation and enter into Christ (Romans 10-11). As Isaiah foresaw Israel at the end of their dispensation, with "eyes that see not, and ears which hear not," Jesus foretold the Pentecostal or Laodicean Church Age would be "blind and know it not," for God has concluded them both in apostasy (Isaiah 6:10; Romans 11:32; Revelation 3:14-22).

"Jesus was in the world and the world which was made by the Word knew Him not. He came to His own and His own received Him not. But as many as received the faith were transformed or born again by God's creative Word" (John 1:10-13). The same Creator manifest in flesh said, "The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and they that hear shall live." He was speaking of the regeneration of the Church Age saints through understanding the Word for their day and by virtue of His Mediatorial work in behalf of their ignorance of its fulness. Christ was a mediator until the Seven Sealed Book was opened and "the mystery of God finished in the days of the Voice of the Seventh Angel" (John 5:19-26).

On the day of Pentecost and in each succeeding Age, the evidence of the new birth has been "hearing" with anointed ears what the Spirit was saying to the Elect Church for that Age—not "speaking with tongues of men and of angels" (Acts 2:41; Romans 10:13-21; Galatians 3:2; Revelation 2:7, 11, 17, 29; 3:6, 13, 22). How else can we receive God's Word except by the understanding of faith, which comes by "hearing" what God is saying. Like Samuel and Elijah we need to be quiet, escape the noise of the world and listen for the still small Voice of inspiration.

Notice Jesus has been speaking of the Son of God dispensation. It is essential we recognize Jesus has three Offices: Son of Man, Son of God, and Son of David. In other words, He is Prophet, Priest, and King. To this all denominations agree, but like Israel, the teachers fail to understand that He does not, indeed CANNOT exercise all three offices simultaneously.

When the Syrophenecian woman implored Jesus as Son of David to heal her daughter she was ignored as His Office at that time was Son of man, the prophet. By faith Israel will "see" Him as Son of man at His 'parousia' Coming after the Gentile day of grace, not until the Millennium when He restores the Kingdom to Israel will His Office be Son of David. Besides, as a Gentile she had no claims on Him as Son of David, but when she called Him "Lord," He acknowledged her faith, for He was Her Lord (Matthew 15:21-28).

We must say the right thing to God, for there will be no answer if our words are not mixed with faith. For instance, there is no promise of remission of past sins and new birth for those who are baptized in the Titles Father, Son, and Holy Ghost as their testimony is not mixed with faith. Concerning water baptism Peter said, "it is not the washing of the body that saves us, but the answer of a good conscience toward God by the revelation that we are justified by grace through faith without works" (I Peter 3:21). We have no reason to expect an answer from God when we pray in the Titles Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, because Jesus commanded us to pray in His Name, and the Name (singular) of those three Titles is Lord Jesus Christ. When that little woman became desperate and said the right thing to God, faith answered her request.

Son of Man, Son of God and Son of David are three different and distinct OFFICES or dispensation claims of One Lord Jesus Christ. But this does not make Him three persons anymore than the Titles, Offices, or dispensation claims Father, Son, and Holy Ghost make God three different persons. Three people in one god makes three gods or language has lost it meaning, making Christians infidels as Mohammedans and "Jews" imagine we are. These three Titles Father, Son and Holy Ghost refer to God above His people under the Law, God with His people in the days of His flesh and God in His people since Pentecost.

Both Isaiah 9:6 and Matthew 28:19 said Messiah would be known by three major Titles, Offices, or dispensation claims: "Wonderful Counselor," the Holy Ghost or parakletos; "Mighty God or Everlasting Father;" and "Prince of Peace" or Son. But the compound redemptive NAME (singular) of these three Titles, Offices, or dispensation claims is Lord Jesus Christ. That is why we baptize, pray, marry, praise, bury, and live in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38-39; 4:12; Colossians 3:17). In the days of His flesh Jesus was not Priest, neither was He Judge, nor King; He was Son of man "the Prophet of Nazareth," the Sacrifice foretold by Moses (Deuteronomy 18:15-18; Matthew 21:11; Hebrews 1:1-2).

The Levites were ministers of the earthly sanctuary under the temporary covering of the blood of bulls and goats. There could be no intercession without blood on the Mercy Seat above the Ark in the Holiest which was built after the vision of a pattern God showed Moses on the mount. As Christ Himself was to be the Sacrifice, His precious Blood an atonement and cleansing for sin, He could not possibly have been a Priest in the days of His flesh before His Blood had been shed to cleanse the heavenly tabernacle of the sins of the Old Testament saints, for "without shedding of blood is no remission of sins," thus no priestly ministration and no resurrection of the Old Testament saints.

In the days of His flesh He could hardly have been Judge. Jesus said, "I judge no man . . . I came not to judge but to save the world" (John 8:15; 12:47). Neither was He King but a Prince. He had not yet overcome (Matthew 26:36-42), until He completely redeemed the Church Age saints through the centuries in which He was High Priest and Mediator for the Elected and claimed the Book of Redemption or Title Deed to all He had redeemed, He could not be King. He could not fully redeem the Church Age saints at Calvary as the Book was sealed and what faith they had would be lost through almost a thousand years of Roman Catholic martyrdom, so He had to intercede for their ignorance or error in the Word. A king has to have a kingdom, Christ had to intercede for His kingdom in order that the Church Age saints could be Spiritually born into It (John 14:1-4; Revelation 1:6; 11:15) and the non-elect receive their salvation. Throughout the Seven Church Ages His body lay as a memorial on the sacrifice altar until His Mediatorial Work was finished. Once the last saint predestinated to Laodicea was baptized into the Body, the Mercy Seat became a Judgment Seat (Revelation 4), and when the elders advertised for a kinsman redeemer, the bloody Lamb advanced from the outer court into the Holy of Holies, took the Book, tore open its Seven Seals, and as Lion of the Tribe of Judah He became King of kings and Judge when the saints crowned Him by their revelation (Revelation 5:8-14). Now there is a Man enthroned in heaven, but Christ's Throne and His Kingdom will be on earth.

It may be helpful if you close your eyes and visualize Revelation 4 and 5 as we rehearse what we have covered thus far. Please study God's Word to prove these things for yourself. From the foundation of the world, the Book was closed and sealed with Seven Seals so that the Church Age saints had only PART-Word. Jewish fables and pagan myths began to be introduced by the non-elect; later the Catholic church was organized in union with the Roman state and martyred over 68 million Christians who refused her creeds. Now, since the Seals have been broken and the mystery of God is finished, the folly of Rome and her harlot daughter churches is manifest. But we know Son of man, Son of God, and Son of David are three different Offices, and three separate Titles of One Lord Jesus Christ, describing His Work in three dispensations over two thousand years and into Eternity.

Satan has blinded the eyes of over 99% of church-goers. And men who spent a lifetime studying, teaching and writing on Scripture imagine Jesus somehow exercises these three Offices simultaneously, and make Father, Son, and Holy Ghost three persons. They have not realized these are also three Offices or dispensation claims of One God, not three persons. They have no understanding of the creation of God (in which Jesus is firstborn of many sons). "But without faith it is impossible to please Him" (Hebrews 11:6).

Israel has been apostate for two thousand years and knows it not. They worship God in the Office of the Father because they have been struck blind by theology contrary to God's prophetic Word, which they crucified when it manifest in flesh in the Office of Son of man. Of Israel Jesus said, "In vain do you worship Me" (Matthew 15:9).

The church of this world still worships God in the Office of Son of God, the one Mediator and High Priest between God and men. However, since the opening of the Seals He is no longer a Mediator and has returned in the prophetic Office of Son of man to reveal their mystery. And as Son of man He is King of kings and Judge (John 5:27). Of the denominations in this day, Jesus said, "You are naked of the Blood, Spiritually bankrupt, blind to My Word, wretched and miserable." In short, you too are apostate (Revelation 3:17-20; Romans 11:32).

We must recognize these different Offices and Titles describe distinct works of God. We must know and understand what he is doing NOW, "for if the trumpet gives an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself for the Battle?" We can learn a great deal from an examination of some of His Old Testament Titles or Offices. For instance:

Jehovah—the self-existent One
Jehovah Jireh—the self-existent One will provide
Jehovah Nissi—the self-existent One is my Banner
Jehovah Rapha—the self-existent One is my Healer
Jehovah Shalom—the self-existent One is our peace
Jehovah Shammah—the self-existent One is there
Jehovah Tsidkenu— the self-existent One is our righteousness

Neither Jew nor Gentile have at any time debated or considered these seven Titles imply seven persons in one god, or seven gods, and Jesus fulfilled each one. Many more Titles and Offices such as El Shadii—the breasted One describe WHAT God is doing at a particular point in time. Only the spirit of strong delusion in the closing years of the Gentile dispensation would lead God-fearing Bible students to suppose Jesus, the self-existent Saviour could be a second or third person of God (Isaiah 45:15, 21-22). God is our One and only Saviour, beside Him there is no other. Were they to truly acknowledge Jesus is Emmanuel, or GOD with us, they would surely understand this series of Titles or Offices describes the duties in which He is engaged at a particular point in time. Isaiah 35:8, "even the most stupid traveler shall not err in the way".

In John's Gospel Jesus explained to His disciples that though He was with them physically, the time would come when the world would see Him no more, but they would not be without consolation. "I will return in another form, and at that day you will know I am WITH you, and also IN you".

This promise began its fulfillment on the Day of Pentecost when He returned in Spirit form. In the form of flesh He could be present only so long as His disciples were gathered together in one location. But as Son of God, the Holy Spirit, He could be with and IN every one of His saints in Spirit form, wherever they were 24 hours a day, through faith or understanding of the Word (John 14; Galatians 3:2,14; I Peter 1:22-25; I John 3:9).

As Son of God He was Mediator between God and men from Pentecost to the end of the Laodicean Church Age. When Revelation 4 and 5 were fulfilled He answered the call for a Kinsman Redeemer, claimed the Title Deed to everything Adam had forfeited, and tore open the Seven Seals, revealing HOW He had redeemed the New Testament saints in each Age.

In Matthew 24:36, Jesus told His disciples there were many things even He did not know, and in Acts 1:6-8 He said it was not needful at that time for them to know when the Millennium should commence, for the Gospel must first be preached as a witness to the Gentiles before the end. Thirty years later He revealed the future two thousand years of Church history to John in symbols on the Isle of Patmos, instructing him NOT to write the Seventh Seal, which is the revelation of the previous Six Seals disclosed by the voices of the seven thunders of Revelation 10:3-4. Thunder represents the Voice of God which spoke through each of the seven Church Age Messengers.

Turning our Bibles to the first three chapters of Revelation, we discover Jesus did NOT immediately reveal all things to the early Church. Pentecost did receive the most important of all revelations—that of the Supreme Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ—which became lost under Roman dogma, but not the mystery of the Seals and future Church history. And during the Seven Church Ages, the Word was given in seven parts. Seven different measures of the Spirit anointed seven major apostles or "angels" through two thousand years to deliver a portion of the Word to the saints of each Age. The Message or "letter" of each was a prophecy to the "churches" (plural) of each dispensation. Those who "heard what the Spirit was saying to the elect church" for their Age were born a second time when they "heard the Voice of the Son of God," and passed from death unto Life, whilst the nominal church without faith to "hear" the revelation, came under condemnation by the "letter" only (John 6:24).

This confirms our understanding of John 5:24-26: "The hour is coming and now is, when those dead in sin and trespasses shall hear the Voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. For as the Father has Life in Himself; so has He given to the Son to have Life in Himself." From Pentecost to Laodicea, it was the revelation of the Voice of the Son of God that baptized the saints into the Body, receiving their revelation of the Word for their day, and interceding for their ignorance of "that which was in part".

Our FIRST birth brought us into the world physically; spiritually we were born dead in sins (Psalm 51:5; Ephesians 2:6). Jesus said, "My elect hear My Voice, and a stranger they will not follow . . . And all the Father has given Me will come." Only the elect can receive the Word for their Age.

As we have explained in elsewhere, from Pentecost until the close of the Laodicean Church Age, Christ was in the Office of Mediator—Priest, Advocate, or Son of God, interceding for the ignorance of the elect so they could be born again. First, in behalf of the elect Israelite converts on account of traditions which often interfered with the purity of their faith because the New Testament expounded by Paul had not been widely shared. And second, as Gentiles began to be in the majority, the church fell away from the Word: the FALSE church martyred the saints and pure faith was lost. So Christ interceded for the ignorance of the saints from Pentecost through the Seven Church Ages.

Like Israel before it, the Gentile dispensation ends in apostasy. However, God promised a RESTORATION of the faith. This RESTORATION of the W-O-R-D was Christ's Supernatural Coming. (In the Greek text of your Bible, this word is, 'parousia,' meaning "arrival and subsequent Presence"). This RESTORATION is necessary because the Church Age saints cannot be glorified until first we come to the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the sons of God. Jesus said He would build His Church on the rock of Spiritual revelation of the Word, or faith (Matthew 16:13-20). That faith was LOST in the blood of the martyrs of the Roman Catholic church. As the understanding of the Word is to be restored and the Word of God must come to a prophet, the Messenger to the Seventh Church Age was the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7.

"Behold I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord; and he shall turn the hearts of the apostolic fathers to the elect children, and the heart of the elect children to their apostolic fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse" (Malachi 4:5-6).

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

The second Coming is the W-O-R-D, NOT the flesh Man from Galilee. Christ the WORD came through the mouth of God's Prophet and the church rejected Him in unbelief because they were looking for the M-A- N, which will be His THIRD Coming. How can they receive Christ without faith to believe His Word? They love their illusion of the historical Jesus but despise His unchanging Word because it condemns their sin. Those who cannot receive the Word of God are NOT His children (John 10:1-5; Romans 8:6-8; II Corinthians 4:3; Hebrews 12:8).

Jesus showed Peter, James and John a vision of His second physical return, preceded by Moses and Elijah whose ministry will restore the 144,000 elect of Israel. His third Coming or second physical return will be after the consummation, when He steps out on the ashes of the wicked with the saints of all Ages for the Millennium, as prophesied in Malachi 4:1-3.

When Peter asked when the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6 should come, Jesus replied, "This Elijah shall come at the end of the Gentile dispensation before these things you've just seen in the vision come to pass, and he will restore all things which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. Before I turn to Israel, faith in the Word, which will be compromised through the Seven Church Ages, must be RESTORED to perfect the Gentile Bride for the manifestation the sons of God and the Resurrection." Jesus then identified John the Baptist as the Elijah of Malachi 3:1 who had already fulfilled his part of the Scripture, sealing his testimony with his own life (Matthew 17:1-13; Acts 3:21).

The Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6 did not preach another gospel, for there is only one Gospel; nor did he add to Scripture, but by the spoken Word he revealed what was hidden within the written Word. His ministry is clearly described by Joel, Malachi, Matthew and Revelation as restoring "the" one and only faith, once delivered to the saints.

His Commission was to gather all the loose ends of doctrine not completely understood by the Reformers and reveal the history of the Seven Church Ages concealed under symbols in the Book of Revelation. As Christ was the only one "worthy to read the Book, or even to look thereon," this could only occur after the last saint predestinated to the Seventh Church Age was redeemed or baptized into the Body, thus fulfilling His ministry of Mediation. Can you see that Revelation 4 and 5 could not be fulfilled until all Seven Church Ages had come to pass?

Once the Church Ages were over, and they are, Christ opened the Book which has been sealed from the time of Daniel the prophet and revealed the perfect interpretation to the "angel" to the Seventh Church Age who delivered the full Counsel of the Lord for His Church (Revelation 1:1; 3:14; 10:7). Because the Word has been sealed with Seven Seals, through the Ages the New Testament saints had only "part" of Christ the anointed Word. Now since the Seals are open the mystery is revealed, we have the perfect interpretation of the Word as Christ is here.

I Corinthians 13:10 is fulfilled: "When that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away." There is only One "Perfect," which is Christ the Word, and the Word comes only to a prophet. So "a" son of man, a servant in the person of the angel to the Laodicean Church Age, revealed "the" Son of man, Christ the fullness of the Word. The Son of man is not "part" of the Word, He IS the complete Word. Jesus is not a second or third "part" of God, He IS Emmanuel—the fullness of God with us. So in rejecting the Seventh Angel's Message, the churches ALL rejected Christ, fulfilling Revelation 3:20, crucifying unto themselves the Son of God afresh, and they know it not.

Do you begin to understand more clearly how I have been trying to explain that the second Coming was NOT the Word in the physical form of Jesus, neither was it Spirit in the Office of the Son of God. It was in the form of the SPOKEN WORD of God's Prophet, revealing the Son of man again. His precious feet will not touch this earth until the Millennium. "Blessed are they that have not seen, yet have believed."

"Oh, Brother, what about Zechariah 14:4, 'His feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives . . .?'"

That is a symbol for Israel as Revelation 10:1-4 is a symbol to us Gentiles. The second Coming is Spiritual, it is the Word in the Office of "Son of Man," uniting with His Bride to fulfill John 17:21-23 and Ephesians 4:13 for the manifestation of the sons of God. His THIRD Coming (or second physical return) will be the flesh Man in the Office of Son of David.

ALL FOUR GOSPELS speak of the 'parousia' "Coming of the Son of man," and the "revealing" (Greek 'apokalupsis', meaning disclosure) of the Son of man at the end of the Gentile dispensation. NONE of these prophesies refer to the physical return of the Man Jesus. The physical Coming takes place when He steps out on the ashes of the wicked after ALL life has been destroyed. The second physical Coming is when He leaves His Father's Throne, or heaven, to take up His Own Throne on earth for the Millennium in the Office of Son of David when the kingdom of Israel is restored.

The second Coming at the end of the Gentile dispensation is the WORD. It is not the Man from Galilee but Christ the Word, first revealed through a vindicated prophet revealing Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever, by the unmistakable Messianic sign of Hebrews 4:12: "discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart . . . as it was in the days of Lot" just before the Gentile cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed. Through this ministry God raised the dead, restored sight to the blind, and performed more miracles than recorded in all the Bible, proving Jesus lives (John 14:12).

Just as there is no Trinity but One God with three Offices or dispensation claims, can you see it is not a second or third Christ but the SAME Jesus who returns at the end of the Gentile dispensation, with another Title, another Office, another dispensation claim before Fire falls and destroys this Gentile civilization? Like Israel, the church proves it is not following the Word when it fails to recognize He is no longer a Mediator in the Office of Son of God and has returned as Son of man; it is following its own ideas instead of the Word.

He came as Son of Man to redeem His Bride, Son of God to intercede for the Church Age saints, Son of Man to incarnate the living saints in the Rapture and will return with His saints as Son of David for the Millennium.

John 5:26-28, "As the Father has Life in Himself; so has He given the Son to have Life in Himself; and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of man. Marvel not at this; for the hour is coming, in which all that are in the graves shall hear His Voice, and . . ." He goes on to speak of the general resurrection and White Throne Judgment at the end of the Millennium. But do you see that the end of the Age He is no longer Son of God, the Mediator and priest? He changes His Office to Son of man once He has redeemed the PART-Word saints and comes back as Light on the Word to bring His end-time Bride into perfect oneness and indict the world. Now He is King of Kings and Judge.

Once the Seven Seals are revealed, Christ is no longer a Mediator for ignorance. As on Mount Sinai, once the full Word or Commandment is delivered He becomes Judge (John 5:27; Romans 4:15; 5:13; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 4:5). Christ had to return to His prophetic Office in order to restore the apostolic faith, reveal the Seals, indict the world of sin, then execute Judgment under the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet, reconfirm His new Covenant to Israel and reveal Himself the same yesterday, and today, and forever through their two witnesses.

II Timothy 3 and 4 describe conditions in society and in the church in the end-time. Daniel was told to seal the vision and prophecy UNTIL the time of the end, so the end-time commenced in 1963 when Christ revealed the Seven Seals. The Gospels also foretell the lawlessness of the end time. As in the days of the Judges of Israel every man does what he deems right in his own sight without regard to God or His Word.

Jesus described the Coming of the Son of man as "lightning" in a hypocritical day that is "neither light nor dark." A time of lawlessness with no Absolute, no right or wrong, but said "in the evening time, just before total apostasy, it will be Light." When Paul met Jesus on the Damascus Road He was Light. He has returned in this end time as the Light of seven days—the Fullness of the revelation (Luke 17:22-24; Isaiah 30:26; Zechariah 14:7; Revelation 10:1-7). God is Light, the second Coming is not a Man but Light. The same Light of revelation which shone in the East in the morning of the Gospel has been RESTORED in the West with the same faith as a witness against Christ-rejecting Gentiles. The unveiling of the Seventh Seal brought Him back to earth in WORD form.

Continuing His prophecy, Jesus likened the days of the Son of man to the days of Noah, inviting us to compare current conditions with those that caused God to grieve placing man in flesh. Instead of man having dominion over the animals, the animal, his own flesh, took dominion over man through lust. The sons of Adam immorally cohabited and interbred with the daughters of Cain. God never forgave this sin and destroyed the world. Jesus said miscegenation between the seed of the Serpent and the seed of Adam would repeat at the end of the Gentile dispensation. He foretold advances in science and engineering, huge population increases and building developments "as it was in the days of Noah." At such a time, He said the Son of man will be revealed. And notice, once again, despite all the warnings and preaching, there has been no repentance, and people will continue in sin until atomic fire destroys them all.

As Enoch's translation, Noah's deliverance and the utter destruction of the Gentiles were the vindication of their Message. The translation of the Bride and utter destruction of the Gentiles will be the vindication of God's Message for today. Jesus also compared end-time conditions with Sodom and Gomorrah (Luke 17:28-37), and promised that in the last days the Son of man will be revealed to Abraham's royal Seed, the elect Church called-out and separated from the world. From this type in Genesis 18, we learn the Church will receive no further witnesses after the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6.

God veiled behind the flesh of a created man and revealed the secrets of Abraham and Sarah's hearts, proving He was the Word (Hebrews 4:12). Veiled behind the flesh of the virgin-born Jesus He identified Himself by the same sign at the end of the Law, when Israel was apostate and knew it not. As He is no respecter of persons He promised to reveal Himself by the same sign at the end of the Gentile Age when the church is apostate and knows it not.

As it was in the days of Lot, homosexuality is rampant and openly accepted by today's society. Three messengers were promised: the last messenger to our dispensation was the angel to the seventh Church Age with a prophetic ministry of restoration to call out the elected, while two others ministered a salvation message to the nominal church in Sodom.

God declared Himself to His elect at the end of the Gentile dispensation, veiled behind the flesh of the prophet William Branham, a sinner saved by grace, revealing Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever, by discerning the thoughts and intents of people's hearts. He finished the mystery of God, from the Serpent seed in the garden of Eden to Satan's incarnation in that man of sin at the close of the dispensation, and restored the faith. Like Lot down in Sodom, the denominations have had their own messengers—Billy Graham and Oral Roberts.

Christ's Coming was signified in the heavens by a mysterious cloud above Tuscon, Arizona on February 28, 1963. A hundred and fifty independent photographs were taken, many of which appeared in newspapers and magazines around the world. Scientific articles were published in encyclopaedia and books on meteorology (Daniel 7:9; Matthew 24:29-30; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7). God revealed this to Brother Branham by vision prophesied several months before the phenomenon. Miles above the atmosphere, this was no natural cloud, but a Supernatural Light scientists have to this day been unable to explain. The Son of man was revealed or made known through the ministry of the William Branham by the same signs which vindicated Him in the days of His flesh. The dead were raised on many, many occasions, the blind received sight, the deaf heard and the lame walked. This was not done in secret but before congregations of half a million. After one meeting in Durban, South Africa, council workers removed seven truck- loads of discarded cots, wheelchairs, crutches and other aids from the meeting place, a race track, the only venue that could accommodate the numbers.

God has always veiled Himself behind the flesh of men. Jesus came to reveal and make known the Father, not to make Himself known. And Brother Branham was sent to reveal the Son of man, not to promote himself. Not once did the sign of Hebrews 4:12 fail to reveal Christ in the Office of the Son of man, the same yesterday, and today, and forever.

Actions speak louder than words. Denominational people say, "We're looking for the Coming of Christ." But their actions prove otherwise. They are even looking for the wrong thing. Their real objective is to add members to their denomination. But there are people, one here and one there, as Jesus said in Luke 17:30-37, who are looking for the Coming of the Lord. These verses speak of the end-time Bride being called out of "her," the church and into "Him," the Word. Denominations believe they speak of the first resurrection. He only reveals Himself to those who understand, and only the elect have faith or understanding. Only the elect are called out of dead creed and tradition to gather around the carcass of the Living Body Word of the Lord Jesus and be caught into a channel of revelation like Job. When the inspiration struck his heart he said, "I know that my Redeemer lives, and He shall stand in the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God" (Job 19:25-26).

Noah, Job, Abraham, the woman at the well and saints in every age saw Him when His promised Word was vindicated. Today, God is calling His people out from every denomination into oneness with the Word for the manifestation of the sons of God. But before we can come into Christ the Word, we must come out of the Babel of denominational confusion—for how can two walk together except they be agreed on the Word? Christ is not uniting with a denominational harlot, she is going to be burned. Christ is marrying a pure virgin without spot or blemish. He's gathering His people for the translation, two are in a bed—a church, spiritual resting place—He'll take one and leave one, two are working in the mission fields, He'll take one and leave one, two are grinding—preparing to preach the Bread of Life, He'll take one and leave one. Where is He going to take them? Where the eagles are gathered together, around the fresh Word, the restored Jesus Christ.

Do you believe the God Who promised these things has done them? You do if you're a Bible Believer—Bible Christian—not a denominational. The old Methodists, Baptists, and real, genuine Pentecostals in their Ages longed to see these things. We believe that the Word was made flesh. And we believe the Word is made flesh in His Bride by the vindication of His Presence in these last days to confirm His Word.

Men and women, can you see how close we are to the going away? You who've put off the Baptism of the Holy Ghost, perhaps relying upon some sensation, the assurances of some old minister, or trusting some gift you have that Satan can impersonate, yet lack the real Spirit in you to go all the way in God's promises. How can a man who claims to have the Holy Ghost deny one Word of this Bible, being "not right?" He can't do it!

No matter how religious you are and how many churches you belong to, if that genuine Holy Ghost is in you (which is this Word manifested), you will see the Message and the hour, because it's the Holy Ghost that does it. But the inspiration has to quicken it to you. No matter how much water you pour water on the ground, if there is no seed in there, there is nothing there to bring forth.

The Elect of God saw it in Noah's day, Moses' day, Jesus' day, the apostolic day, Luther's day, Wesley's day, and in the Pentecostal Age, because they were foreknown as being on the earth when the inspiration was poured out for their day. Now while the inspiration is being poured out to gather the Bride together, only the Elected will see it. Jesus said, "I thank You, Father, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent, and revealed them to babes such as would learn".

Once inspiration strikes and you have the revelation, the gates of hell can not prevail against It. Are we living in a modern Sodom and Gomorrah? Is history repeating itself? It was a Gentile world that was destroyed by fire then. Jesus said in Luke 17:28-30, "As it was in the days of Sodom, so shall it be when the Son of man is being revealed" or made known! John the Baptist, Malachi, Jesus and Peter said, "The heavens and the earth which are now are reserved for fire" (II Peter 3:7).

Things that were hidden throughout the Church Ages are now revealed. God promised it and if He doesn't honor His Word It's no better than a man's. He is His Own interpreter. He said, "A virgin shall conceive," and she did. He said, "Let there be light," and there was. We are not living in Luther's Age, Wesley's Age, or the Pentecostal Age, we live in the evening time when the Bride is being called out. Jesus said He would return as Son of man in this day and He has. He is here NOW, Christ is here in WORD Form.

It was hard for Catholics to see Luther; for Luther's followers to see Wesley's dispensation, and for Wesley's group to see the Pentecostal Age. Now it is hard for the Pentecostals to see OUR day. And if it's hard for the Pentecostals to see our day, it is almost impossible for Baptist, Methodist, Anglican and other denominations two or three dispensations behind God's Word, to come out of Babylon into the glorious Light of the present Truth. It has always been this way, because the Spirit is poured out on an elected Seed, and that only. The Bible others can't see it. Revelation foretold Christ would be put out of the church in this Laodicean Church Age. He was, now they are "naked, poor, miserable, blind and know it not".

Before the foundation of the world Jesus said, "Let there be," and there was. "He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. But as many as did know Him, to them he gave the power to become the sons of God." The very Creator Himself later said, "Marvel not at this; for the hour is coming when all that are in the grave will hear the Voice of the Son of man, and shall come forth." The very God Who said "Let there be Light," said "The Voice of the Son of man would wake those that are in the grave." It has to happen in its season.

Now He is Son of man, not Son of God. He is the same Person, but in a different Office, for a different work.

The Son of Man is the Word, the Seventh Angel's Message is the Son of man—Revelation 10:1-7. In Revelation 1, which is the end of the Age, we see one like the Son of man standing in the midst of the seven lampstands. The symbol is likened to the Son of man as Judge, girt about the breast with a golden girdle, not as Son of God and Mediator, and symbolizes the elect Church drawn out of all Ages. This is Jesus—impersonated in the flesh of His Church. I Corinthians 6:2, "Don't you know that the saints will judge the world"? The finished Body has grown into the measure of the stature of a perfect Man, the Fulness of the Word, fulfilling Malachi 4 and other Scriptures that promised a restoration of the Word in this day. The Bride and Groom will be one when the Seventh Trumpet sounds the fullness of the Gentiles and announces the great and dreadful day of the Lord.

Jesus came as Son of man to redeem His Bride, as Son of God to mediate for His Bride while the Book was sealed, and is now Son of Man—the fulness of the Word again, uniting with His Bride for the resurrection, the manifestation of the sons of God and the translation. He will return with the saints of all ages for the Millennium, in the Office of Son of David.

Once again, God bless you Brethren as you receive this Word with all readiness of mind, then search the Scriptures. Like Job, we are in the hour of crisis. If you have a genuine revelation, like Job, you will hold onto it although friends and those dear ones scoff and scorn your Jesus. If the church has rejected this revelation because it condemns their creeds, they will reject the Word in you because the Life of Christ on display brings them into condemnation.

Have patience, pray and study your way through the centuries of learning and darkness into the Light of the Presence of the Son of man. Once you are united with Him, pass the faith to some poor soul ship-wrecked on life's boundless ocean. There IS Life, there IS hope, there IS a God who HAS come a second time to impart His Life to His Bride. Since the Seventh Seal has been opened He will not tarry. Be patient, meet your outstanding debts, get your life in order, and the inspiration will come. bb920428.htm (abridged)
