The Former and Latter Rain - Part II

Bible Believers' Newsletter #533
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
ISSN 1442-8660

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

This issue further explores how the pagan religion of Babylon was transformed into Judaism and Roman Catholicism—mother and daughter reunited to rule Lucifer's one world government during the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week, after which they will have a "falling out" and fight to the death in the battle of Armageddon. We take another look at the former and latter rain through Old Testament shadows and types which indicate how they will apply in the immediate future.

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

Why an Income Tax is Not Necessary to Fund the US Government
Can this statement possibly be true? In order to answer this question, Americans must first understand what is the source of the money that funds the government and where it goes. Contrary to the sound bites issued by the two mainstream political parties, the reality of how the system actually works will not only open your eyes, but hopefully stimulate the American people to demand that the thievery underway come to an end.

Where do your "income" tax dollars go? The best place to look for an answer to this question would be a government report, so let's take just one at random. . . Full story: devvy.com

Comment: Devvy Kidd's research of government documents demonstrates how taxpayers ignorantly fund the International Banksters and their wars, and feed the egos of "the City's" puppet politicians who transfer our wealth to our enemies. Last week in Japan, Australia's glib new puppet PM gave $35 million to Toyota; in Indonesia he glad-handed $50 million on top of the existing $1 billion pledge.

The Science of the UN
June 21, 2008 – The United Nations has selected 600 willing people with formal education in science to participate in its series of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change ("IPCC") meetings and studies. . .

If the mob rule process of the United Nations worked, many great unsolved scientific questions could be quickly solved. United Nations observers could attend scientific meetings of cancer scientists and determine the causes and cures of cancer. With the "science settled," this scourge could be eliminated. Likewise, Alzheimer's disease, human aging, the origin of the universe, and other great unsolved problems could be solved. The fact is that mob rule does not work in science any better than it works in nations. No scientific question has ever been resolved in this way.

In the present case in which United Nations apparatchiks have proclaimed that human activity is catastrophically warming the planet, the human cost of error is so great than many other scientists have become motivated to individually examine the evidence. Now, a total of more than 9,000 Americans with PhDs in science and therefore professional educational credentials that, on average, equal or surpass the United Nations 600—and a total of more than 31,000 Americans with at least BSc. degrees have signed a petition to the US government specifically rejecting the United Nations claim that human use of hydrocarbon energy is injuring the climate. In fact, the 31,000 scientists state that carbon dioxide released by energy production is actually beneficial to the environment. . . Full story: newswithviews.com

Going Green = $4 per Gallon
June 22, 2008 – Going green (its real name is sustainable development) has led to Orwellian regulations resulting in the destruction of American businesses and the jobs that go with them, including manufacturing and industry; the locking away of American natural resources like oil, timber and minerals, forcing expensive imports; the near abolishment of private property, the bedrock of any economy's source of wealth; and massive invasion of the farming industry to assure it is "sustainable," including the mandated use of corn for the making of ethanol, leading to food shortages and higher prices...

Global warming has been the most convenient threat upon which all of the rhetoric has been based. What it is really leading to is the creation of a new economy based on trading carbon credits. Such policy is really nothing more than a massive redistribution of the wealth scheme designed to force industrial nations to make deals with less developed ones to trade for energy credits and get around severe energy use restrictions. It's what Al Gore trades in order to allow him to claim he has a "zero carbon footprint"—even as he flies around the world in his jets and pays $2000 electric bills on his Tennessee mansion. In the end, the same emissions are released into the atmosphere, but money and power is exchanged from the industrial nations to the less developed. Where is the protection for the environment? Of course there isn't any.

The International Energy Agency just reported the need for an "energy revolution" in which $45 trillion will be allocated to combat Global Warming. What bunk. Global warming is quickly proving to be little more than a natural phenomenon having virtually nothing to do with man. Science has now shown that human-caused CO2 emissions amount to no more than 0.017%—virtually insignificant. More and more scientists—by the thousands—are now expressing their skepticism about the whole global warming theory. . . Going green=sustainable development=the coming dark ages for all of mankind. Americans have only just begun to experience it and they are already feeling loss and a sense of hopelessness.

Catholic Bishop says Protocols of Zion Authentic
March 5, 2008 – A senior bishop of the Lefebvrist Society of St Pius X (SSPX) has endorsed The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a notorious anti-Semitic forgery that enjoys widespread currency in neo-Nazi circles.

Richard Williamson, one of four bishops ordained by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, told The Catholic Herald the document—which supposedly reveals a Jewish plot to dominate the world—was authentic.

He is also on record as saying the Jews are fighting for world domination "to prepare the Anti-Christ's throne in Jerusalem". The SSPX has refused to condemn English-born Bishop Williamson and says it has "no policy" on the authenticity of the Protocols, a Russian Czarist forgery. . . The Society's support for Williamson—who also believes that the Americans planned 9/11—is likely to end any chance of full reconciliation between the SSPX and Rome. . .

In 2000 Williamson endorsed the Protocols on an official SSPX website. He wrote: "God put into men's hands the Protocols of the Sages of Sion . . . if men want to know the truth, but few do". . . In a YouTube video, Williamson is filmed arguing that the Twin Towers were not brought down by aeroplanes but by "demolition charges". . .
Full story: catholicherald.co.uk

Comment: The bishop's views on the Protocols accord with the High Court in Berne, Switzerland, which found the Jews had bribed the primary Judge in the 1935 hearing and reversed his decision on November 1, 1937.

With Declassified US Military Intelligence Reports from US National Archives prepared during World War II concerning the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion and the Zionist problem for the United States from pre-WWI to the mid-50's, only declassified 1973, and include reports before the US Senate, as well as British and French intelligence investigations over the same period.

Theodor Herzl's book, Programme for the Jewish World-Colony, recently republished, but better known as The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, did not regard them as a "Russian Forgery." Neither did the decision of the Court of Appeals of Paris on the 22nd of September 1993, nor the High Court of Justice of Budapest in their decision of 14th May, 2004 (monusaron.com). Indeed, the Alliance of the Jewish Religious Associations in Hungary and its director, Guszt√°v Zoltai, were made to publish apologies in the press and on television.

Only in Russia after the Jews invaded from New York City, enforced Judaeo-Communism, and murdered 66 million nominal Christians, were the Protocols proscribed as "a forgery," and their possession a capital offence. No one, not even Theodor Herzl, has stated where he obtained "original" documentation from which he wrote his "notorious anti-Semitic forgery".

On the other points the bishop appears to have based his statements on the authority of Daniel, Jesus Christ, and the Babylonian Talmud, which reveal the same "plot"; while in the case of 9/11 he obviously relies on the forensic evidence of qualified experts. It was not possible for two aeroplanes to demolish one building, much less Building 7 and two others, and it was not an aeroplane that struck the Pentagon.

The Former and Latter Rain - Part II


Ahab, son of Omri, was the seventh king of the Northern kingdom of Israel, however he was weak and became a puppet in the hands of his wicked wife Jezebel, whose name means "chaste, free from carnal connection"; but like her antitype, the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church, which Jesus and Brother Branham called "the great whore . . . the mother of harlots," and "Jezebel" religion, her name belied her nature (Revelation 2:20-23; 17:1-8; 18:1-20).

Jezebel was the daughter of Ethbaal, king of Sidon and priest of Astarte, who murdered Pheles his predecessor. A perfect type of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church which is the daughter of Babylonian Judaism that murdered Israel's Messiah. Under Jezebel's influence Ahab introduced the idolatrous worship of Baal the Sun-god, the deified Nimrod, and his consort the Babylonian Moon-goddess Astarte (Ishtar) after which the Roman Catholic festival of "Easter" is named. Astarte is actually Nimrod's deified wife Semiramis who is also worshipped as Venus, Beltis, Diana, Rhea, Cybele, Melissa and Melitta, and whom Roman Catholics ignorantly worship as Mary. The worship of Jehovah was scarcely tolerated and the public mind seems to have halted between the two, Jehovah and Baal, except for seven thousand who alone had not bowed the knee. Unbelief was such that people thought to unite the worship of Baal with that of Jehovah.

How like today? Vatican II was a move in the same direction and tentative attempts at a congress of religions like that of Pope John Paul II at Assisi on October 27, 1986, had occurred in 1893 in Chicago and in Paris in 1900. In June of 1995, an Interfaith Summit Conference was held in San Francisco for the purpose of "uniting the world's religions into a global organization. The United Religions Organization (UR) will be an international, inter-religious organization modeled after and affiliated with the United Nations, cooperating closely with the UN and its organizations to complement its political, diplomatic and social mandates, influence UN policy and support its programs".

Pope John Paul II also predicted that there will be a unity of faith and that all religions will soon worship together:

"Pope John Paul II said yesterday that he is willing to seek agreement with other Christian denominations on the future role of the papacy. The pope made his offer in a 115-page encyclical, 'That They All May Be One,' which is dedicated to the search for unity among Christian churches that split from each other during the past thousand years." The pope made clear he would not accept a symbolic papacy without teeth and that Rome would have to hold the primary place among Christians. He also said a pope should have the authority to make infallible declarations regarding the basic tenets of faith (San Francisco Chronicle, May 31, 1995).

"In the year 360 Julian, a cousin of Constantine, was proclaimed Roman Emperor by the army. Constantine, who had prepared for battle against him, died on the way; this made easier the final victory for Julian and his proclamation as Emperor of the Orient and Occident. The policy of Julian had three principle aims: I. To renew the Pagan belief and to again declare it a state religion of the Empire, so that Rome, which according to his view had declined through Christianity, might return to its old glory. II. To destroy Christianity. III. To concede to Jewry its old positions, from which it had been expelled by Constantine and his sons; even the rebuilding of the Temple of Solomon was to be arranged. . ."

"The famous Jewish historian [H. H. Graetz] said: ". . . Julian paid great admiration to the Jewish religion" and confirms that "the period of government by Julian . . . was a time of highest fortune for the Jews of the Roman Empire. . ."

"Graetz likewise establishes that Julian called the leader of Jewry in the Empire, the patriarch Hillel, literally "his respected friend," and promised him in a personal letter to make an end of the misdeeds committed by the Christian Emperors against the Jews. Further, Julian made all necessary preparations in order to begin the rebuilding of the Temple of Jerusalem. He addressed a letter to all Jewish congregations of the Empire, in which he spoke in a friendly way of the leader of Jewry in the Empire, the Patriarch Julos (Hillel), as his brother. He promised the abolition of the high taxes laid upon the Israelites by the Christians, guaranteed that in the future none should accuse them of blasphemy, promised freedom and security and promised to have Jerusalem rebuilt at his expense, as soon as he returned victorious from the Persian war. For the rebuilding of the Temple of Jerusalem Julian commissioned his best friend, Alypius of Antioch, to whom he gave instructions to spare no expense, and commanded the governors of Palestine and Syria, to assist with everything necessary" (H. H. Graetz, History of the Jews cited by Maurice Pinay in The Plot against the Church, 1967, p. 285-6).

The death of Julian in AD363 curtailed plans for rebuilding Solomon's Temple; however, the Jewish Virtual Library boasts of a Hebrew revival in Rome in the centuries which followed:

"During this period there was a revival of Hebrew studies in Rome, centered around the local yeshiva, Metivta de Mata Romi. A number of well-known scholars, Rabbi Kalonymus b. Moses and Rabbi Jacob 'Gaon' and Rabbi Nathan b. Jehil (who wrote a great talmudic dictionary, the Arukh), contributed to Jewish learning and development. Roman Jewish traditions followed those practiced in the Land of Israel and the liturgical customs started in Rome spread throughout Italy and the rest of the world."

The abovementioned Jewish "liturgical customs" which started in Rome somehow were little by little incorporated into what gradually developed into the Roman Catholic Mass. The Catholic Encyclopedia officially defines Catholic liturgy as a carryover from the Mosaic Law: ". . . the word liturgy . . . is used for the public service of the temple . . . the function of the priests, the ritual service of the temple . . . So in Christian use liturgy meant the public official service of the Church, that corresponded to the official service of the Temple in the Old Law."

Reading further we find the startling admission, that the Mass was "a Christianized synagogue service" conducted by "learned elders":

"The Eucharist was always celebrated at the end of a service of lessons, psalms, prayers, and preaching, which was itself merely a continuation of the service of the synagogue. So we have everywhere this double function; first a synagogue service Christianized, in which the holy books were read, psalms were sung, prayers said by the bishop in the name of all (the people answering 'Amen' in Hebrew, as had their Jewish forefathers), and homilies, explanations of what had been read, were made by the bishop or priests, just as they had been made in the synagogues by the learned men and elders (e.g. Luke, iv, 16-27). . . The likeness between the prayers of thanksgiving (ix-x) and the Jewish forms for blessing bread and wine on the Sabbath (given in the 'Berakoth' treatise of the Talmud; cf. Sabatier, 'La Didache', Paris, 1885, p. 99) points obviously to derivation from them."

Little wonder that one Jewish convert to Roman Catholicism made the astounding statement that entering the Catholic Church was not a "conversion" experience for him, but rather a continuation of Judaism. Roy Schoeman, the author of Salvation is from the Jews, confirms as well that the Mass is based on the Jewish ceremonial worship and that Catholic theology is based on the Old Testament!

"As a Jew coming to the Catholic Church, it was natural for me to find the relationship between Judaism and the Catholic Church among the most interesting things in the world. It was obvious to me that for a Jew to enter the Catholic Church wasn't a matter of conversion at all, but was rather simply coming into the fullness of Judaism—into the form that Judaism took after the coming of the Jewish Messiah."

"Although Catholics are aware of this in principle, they often don't think of the Catholic Church as the continuation of Judaism after the Messiah. . . It's everywhere you look. It's obviously in the Sacrifice of the Mass and the way the Mass is prefigured in Jewish ceremonial worship. It's in the role that the Old Testament, Jewish Scriptures have in Catholic theology and the structure of the Catholic Faith" (www.seattlecatholic.com/article_20031215_pr.html).

A listing of parallels between Roman Catholicism and Judaism, which have analogues in the Eastern Orthodox Church as well, presented us with the startling prospect that Roman Catholicism may have been a Judaised form of Christianity from its inception. In the list of traditions below, links to the Catholic Encyclopedia show that the Roman Catholic Church justifies most of its practices by appealing to the Old Testament. Even in cases where the New Testament is cited as justification, these practices are not required under the New Covenant but have their basis in Judaism.

Priesthood (Levitical priesthood/mediators between God and men).
Pope (Jewish High Priest).
College of Cardinals (Seventy elders of Moses/Deuteronomy 17:8).
Confession of sins to priest for forgiveness (Leviticus 5:5).
Daily sacrifice of the Mass (Daily burnt offering/Hebrews 10:11).
Altars for sacrifices
Altar vessels of gold and silver.
Vestments for priests.
skullcap (Jewish yarmulke).
Offertory (Offerings).
Church buildings for worship (Temple).
Liturgy (service of the Temple).
Sunday obligation (Sabbath observance).
Ecclesiastical Feasts (Jewish feasts).
Scapular/Hairshirt (Sackcloth).
Works-based salvation (Mosaic Law).
Sacrament of infant baptism (Rite of Circumcision/Talmud).
Wafer-only Communion (Manna/Show Bread).
Sacrament of Confirmation (Jewish Bar/Bat Mitzvah).
Burning of candles and incense (Exodus 30).
Holy water font (The Laver/Exodus 40).
No salvation outside the (Catholic) Church (Gentiles must convert to Judaism to be saved).

The following Roman Catholic traditions were not part of the Mosaic Law but were adopted by the Israelites in their apostasy:

Traditions of men (Mark 7:6-13).
Vain repetitions (Lip service/Isaiah 29:13; Matthew 6:7).
Veneration of saints (Idolatry/pagan gods).
Worship of Mary as Mother of God (Jews worshipped Queen of Heaven/Jeremiah 44).
Statues/images (images on the walls of Solomon's Temple/Ezekiel 8:10).
Demotion of Jesus to Co-Redeemer (Jews' denial of Jesus as Messiah).
Preoccupation with Christ's death rather than resurrection (Jews' denial of Jesus' resurrection).

The above is only a partial catalog of Jewish traditions found in Roman Catholicism. The sacerdotal (priesthood) and daily sacrificial systems alone strongly implicate the Roman Catholic Church as not only a 'front' for apostate Judaism, but as a vehicle for converting nominal Christians, who have no knowledge, to the very religious system that rejected Jesus Christ. "Explanatory Comments on the Methodist Articles of Religion" compares the Roman Catholic teaching on salvation to that preached in Judaism:

"The Catholic perspective on salvation is largely 'Judaised' Christianity. In the days of the Apostles, many Jewish Christians believed that Christians had to follow all the requirements of the Mosaic Law, e.g., circumcision, the system of offerings, going to a priest to have sins forgiven, making sacrifices as atonement for sins, etc. A system that requires some type of 'priest' to act as an intercessor between the layperson and God is known as a sacerdotal system (from the Latin word sacerdote, meaning 'priest')." Jesus called it Nicolaitanism, "which thing I hate" (Revelation 2:15).

In view of the striking parallels between Roman Catholicism and Judaism, it becomes apparent that Roman Catholicism represents, to a remarkable degree, the triumph of the Judaisers at the Hegelian dialectic of the First Nicea Council in AD325 where the Universal Church of the Roman Empire was organized as a counterfeit form of Christianity by apostate self-styled Jews whose works caused papal Rome to become the actual seat or power of Satanic religion (Revelation 2:13; Barbara Aho, Mystery, Babylon the Great: Catholic or Jewish)?

During the Babylonian captivity, the prophet Ezekiel continued to reprove Judah for its apostasy from the God of Israel and her love affair with Babylon. In Ezekiel 23:14-18, the Jews' admiration for the images of rich, brightly attired Babylonian princes, evokes visual images of the elegant processions of the princes of the Roman Catholic Church attired in their rich and colorful vestments:

". . . [Jerusalem] was in fact more debased than Samaria, and increased her whoredoms: for when she saw carvings of men portrayed upon the wall, the images of the Chaldeans painted in vermilion, with girdles about their loins, and flowing turbans upon their heads, captains to look to, all of them looking like Babylonians of Chaldea, the land of their nativity. When she saw them she longed to give herself to the men pictured, and sent messengers to them in Chaldea to invite them to come to her. And the Babylonians came to her into the bed of love, and they defiled her with their whoredom, and when she was polluted with them, she turned from them in disgust. And because she flaunted her harlotries and exposed her nakedness, I also became disgusted with her, as I had become disgusted with her sister, Israel. . ."

Moreover, as Matthew Henry noted in his commentary on this passage, the kingdom of Judah patterned its own worship after the pomp and pageantry of the Babylonians with whom they had become enamored:

"Thus she increased her whoredoms; she fell in love, fell in league, with the Chaldeans. Hezekiah himself was faulty this way when he was proud of the court which the king of Babylon made to him and complimented his ambassadors with the sight of all his treasures, Isaiah 39:2. And the humour increased (verse 14); she doted upon the pictures of the Babylonian captains (verse 15-16), joined in alliance with that kingdom, invited them to come and settle in Jerusalem, that they might refine the genius of the Jewish nation and make it more polite; nay, they sent for patterns of their images, altars, and temples, and made use of them in their worship. Thus was she polluted with her whoredoms (verse 17), and thereby she discovered her own whoredom (verse 18), her own strong inclination to idolatry".

According to Jesus and Paul, Judaism is the pagan Babylonian antithesis of Yahweh Torah, the God-revealed faith of Israel. If you doubt these two men who were prophets, read the Babylonian Talmud on the Church Website and see if you can reconcile it with Abraham, Moses and the Prophets. Jesus said, "In vain do they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men" (Matthew 15:9; Mark 7:7-9).

The Anti-Defamation League's Interfaith Affairs Director Emeritus, Papal Knight Rabbi Leon Klenicki, described the reprint of Elijah ben Abraham Benamozegh's (1823-1900) "Noahide" tome, Israel and Humanity, "at once a wide-ranging summa of scriptural, Talmudic, Midrashic, and kabbalistic ideas, and an intensely personal account of Jewish identity. It is also a systematic, meticulously reasoned philosophy of Judaism in its relation to the other religions of mankind, especially its daughter religions, [Roman Catholic] Christianity and Islam".

Like Jesus Christ and Paul, the so-called "Jews" of the present day and Brother Branham revealed that Babylonian Judaism is the mother of the Roman Catholic system of false religion. And if you examine Islam you will see the Babylonian Talmud as indelibly etched in Koranic thought as in Catholicism.

God destroyed the Northern kingdom of Israel when it forsook the pure worship of Jehovah for the Babylonian Trinitarianism of Assyria. This system of false worship derived from the wickedness of Ham who replicated the original sin this side of the Flood. He was the father of Cush, the father of Nimrod who built Babylon. When Judah committed spiritual fornication with the Babylonian Trinity, God brought the nation under Gentile dominion unto the consummation of life on earth. They came under submission to the world empires of Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Imperial Rome, and finally Papal Rome, which will shortly impose Trinitarian worship upon all under pain of death (Revelation 13:1-4, 8, 15-18). Furthermore, they intermarried with and came under the dominion of the Edomites as prophesied by Isaac.

Idolatrous Babylon foreshadowed and spawned a daughter called Talmudic Judaism, and Babylonian-Judaism bore the great whore, Judaeo-Roman Catholicism, which is the mother of harlots, so the history of Ahab and his Jezebel has its antitype in these last days. Brother Branham said, "America is the seat of the Devil": the (City of London's) Ayatollah Khomeini was correct when he called the United States, "the Great Satan," for Jesus said she is the image to the beast of Imperial Rome as the (once) Protestant churches are the image of the beast of Papal Rome (Revelation 13:10-18; 17:5).

Brother Branham typed Ahab with US President John Kennedy, behind whom was the Jezebel religion of Judaeo-Catholicism. In the sixth of seven consecutive visions the Lord showed him in 1933 "there arose up in America a most beautiful, but cruel woman. She held the people in her complete power. I believed that this was the rise of the Roman Catholic Church, though I knew it could possibly be a vision of some woman rising in great power in America due to a popular vote by women." This accords with the abovementioned Scripture. The power Rome was not able to obtain by religious conversion she has gained through political influence. The neocons, for instance, are either Judaeo-Catholics or Pharisees. Sinners, behold your monsters masters under Lucifer's NWO: Judaism and Catholicism are two tentacles of the same golem.

I Kings 16:30-34, "Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the Lord more so than all who were before him. As if following the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat had been trifling, he married Jezebel, the (Canaanite Serpent's seed) daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and went on to serve and worship Baal. He erected an altar to Baal in the temple of Baal which he built in Samaria. Ahab also made a grove and so continued to provoke the Lord God of Israel more than all the kings of Israel that were before him. And in his days Jericho, which was accursed of God, was rebuilt".

Thus God sent Elijah to Ahab to curse the land with famine: "As sure as the Lord God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, it will not dew nor rain for several years, until I say the Word" (I Kings 17:1).

Brother Branham said, "When God sends forth a message and . . . the people . . . don't receive it, then He withdraws His servant and sends His plagues: famine, death, spiritually speaking, physically also. You watch for a depression, brother. You think you've seen something; you just wait after while. You haven't seen nothing. You think you're dying for a good spiritual revival; you wait till after a bit. You just wait, long and cry to hear the Word of God. The Bible said so. "There'll be a famine in the last days," said the prophet, "and not for bread and water alone, but for hearing the true Word of God." But that voice will be quiet in the wilderness somewhere, hid away".

The apostolic faith has been restored, the mystery of God is finished; the Message has been rejected; God has taken His prophet off the scene and the long-planned global famine is well-under way, directed by global warming, climate change, ecological, environmental pollution, "peak oil," bio-fuel, genocidal "free trade" schemes and manipulation of fiat monetary systems in the grand conspiracy against God and man with the objective of massive world depopulation and the return to serfdom under Lucifer's totalitarian one world government. Like Ahab, the world church system precipitated this iniquity by committing the unpardonable sin and intensified God's curse by instituting a Spiritual famine for hearing the present Truth. However, the Lord cares for you and as He ordained the ravens to feed Elijah, their service types the five-fold ministry sent to feed the Church in the wilderness. Brother Branham said, "I'll ride this trail once more," and he being dead yet speaks through this ministry, while "the Voice of the Archangel" in the heart of Christ's Bride is placing the Message from Genesis to Revelation to bring her to maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.

While the nominal church has sunk to the depths of apostasy in the bosom of mother Rome, the Church in the wilderness has preached no revivals. No one will listen: hate legislation against truth and the love of God in league with the controlled media has outlawed her Voice so she remains silent, "making herself ready." But the Message came to a widow when the death of her husband, denominational religion, set her free to believe THUS SAITH THE LORD (Romans 7:1-4).

Few will enter into the Capstone of the Body of the Lord, and the hour is coming in which God promised a former rain and a latter rain; a double portion as when Elijah was caught up into the Shekinah and dropped his mantle. The Elijah of this day is the Lord Jesus Christ living in His end-time Bride, while the Elisha will be those who catch the vision of the resurrected Bride and receive a double portion of the Spirit. Zechariah 14:8, "It shall be in the day of the earthquake, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former [or Dead] sea (signifying Israel), and half of them toward the hinder [or Mediterranean} sea (signifying the Gentile Bride): in summer and in winter shall it be." Our latter, gathering or harvest rain will produce Israel's former or teaching rain, and as the rain fertilizes the otherwise barren land, so God's favor will restore the nation of Israel long Spiritually lifeless (Joel 2:23-27; Romans 11:15).

God said there will be a former rain and a latter rain, and in the latter rain, both former and latter would come together: a double portion. Hallelujah! We have seen what the former rain produced at Pentecost and in the calling out of Christ's end-time Bride; how much more powerful will the latter rain be when God pours out His Spirit upon all flesh at the close of the Gentile dispensation and His return to Israel? Signs and wonders will take place when the hunted and persecuted members of Christ's Bride speak the Word, and Israel's prophets repeat the miracles God performed through Moses and Elijah.

I wonder if we are sufficiently impressed with the Word in our midst. Let me give you a thought here. How do we pray? We pray in Jesus Name don't we? Every prayer is in His Name or there isn't any answer. Yet in I John 5:14, we are told, "This is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us; and if we know that He listens to us in whatever we may petition, then the requests we ask of Him are assured us."

You ask, "What is the will of God?" There is only ONE WAY to know His will and that is by the WORD OF GOD. Lamentations 3:37, "Who speaks and it comes to pass unless the Lord has ordained it?" There it is. If it isn't in the Word you can't have it. So we can't ask unless it is in the Word, and we can only petition or ask in His Name. There it is again. JESUS (the Name) is the WORD (will). You cannot separate God and the Word. They are ONE. This Word He has left behind on the printed page is a part of Him when you accept it by faith into a Spirit-filled life. He said that His Word was Life. John 6:63b. But that is exactly what He is: John 14:6, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life."

Romans 8:9b, "Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ is none of His." There it is, He is Spirit and He is Life. That is exactly what the Word is; that is exactly what Jesus is. He is the Word. So when a Spirit-born, Spirit-filled man in faith takes that Word into his heart and places it upon his lips, why that is the same as Deity speaking. Every mountain has to go. Satan cannot stand before that man. If the church, way back there in that third age where the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church organized, had only held on to the revelation of the living Word in their midst, the power of God would not have faded as it did in those Dark Ages. And today, when the church returns to the Word in faith, we can say without doubt that the glory of God and the wonderful acts of God will be in her midst again. This the key to the operation of the 'third pull' manifesting by the spoken Word from your lips in the latter rain. No true believer is any stronger and spiritually healthy and alive than his knowledge of and adherence to the pure Word of God, as seen by multitudes of examples in the Old Testament.

Brother Branham said, "One night as I was seeking the Lord, the Holy Spirit told me to pick up my pen and write. As I grasped the pen to write, His Spirit gave me a Message for the church. I want to bring it to you. . . It has to do with the Word and the Bride.

"Here is what I am trying to say to you. The law of reproduction is that each specie brings forth after its own kind, even according to Genesis 1:11, "And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, and the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so." Whatever life was in the seed came forth into a plant and thence into fruit. The very same law applies to the church today. Whatever seed started the church will come forth and be like the original seed because it is the same seed. In these last days the true Bride Church (Christ's seed) will come to the Headstone, and she will be the super church, a super race, as she nears Him. They in the bride will be so much like Him that they will even be in His very image. This is in order to be united with Him. They will be one. They will be the very manifestation of the Word of the living God. Denominations cannot produce this (wrong seed). They will produce their creeds and their dogmas, mixed with the Word. This mongrelizing brings forth a hybrid product.

The first son (Adam) was the spoken seed-Word of God. He was given a bride to reproduce himself. That is why the bride was given to him, to reproduce himself; to produce another son of God. But she fell. She fell by hybridization. She caused him to die.

The second Son (Jesus), also a spoken Seed-Word of God was given a bride like as was Adam. But before He could marry her, she also had fallen. She, like Adam's wife, was put to the test whether she would believe the Word of God and live, or doubt the Word and die. She doubted. She left the Word. She died.

From a little group of the true seed of the Word, God will present Christ with a beloved bride. She is a virgin of His Word. She is a virgin because she knows no man-made creeds or dogmas. By and through the members of the bride will be fulfilled all that was promised of God to be made manifest in the virgin.

The word of promise came to the virgin Mary. But that Word of promise was He, Himself, to be made manifest. God was made manifest. He, Himself, acted at that time and fulfilled His own Word of promise in the virgin. It was an angel that had brought her the message. But the angel's message was the Word of God. Isaiah 9:6. He fulfilled at that time all that was written of Him because she accepted His Word to her.

The members of the virgin bride will love Him, and they will have His potentials, for He is their head, and all power belongs to Him. They are subject to Him as the members of our bodies are subject to our heads.

Notice the harmony of the Father and the Son. Jesus never did anything until it was first showed Him by the Father. John 5:19. This harmony is now to exist between the Groom and His bride. He shows her His Word of life. She receives it. She never doubts it. Therefore, nothing can harm her, not even death. For if the seed be planted, the water will raise it up again. Here is the secret of this. The Word is in the bride (as it was in Mary). The bride has the mind of Christ for she knows what He wants done with the Word. She performs the command of the Word in His Name for she has "thus saith the Lord." Then the Word is quickened by the Spirit and it comes to pass. Like a seed that is planted and watered, it comes to full harvest, serving its purpose.

Those in the bride do only His will. No one can make them do otherwise. They have 'thus saith the Lord' or they keep still. They know that it has to be God in them doing the works, fulfilling His own Word. He did not complete all His work while in His earthly ministry so now He works in and through the bride. She knows that, for it was not yet time for Him to do certain things that He must now do. But He will now fulfill through the bride that work which He left for this specific time.

Now let us stand like Joshua and Caleb. Our promised land is coming in sight even as theirs did. Now Joshua means "Jehovah Saviour", and he represents the end-time leader that will come to the church (Brother Branham of Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:7 – Ed) even as Paul came as the original leader. Caleb represents those that stayed true with Joshua. Remember, God had started Israel as a virgin with His Word. But they wanted something different. So did the last day church. Notice how God did not move Israel, or let her go into the promised land until it was His own appointed time. Now the people might have put pressure on Joshua, the leader, and said, "The land is ours, let's go and take it. Joshua, you are all through, you must have lost your commission, you don't have the power you used to have. You used to hear from God and know the will of God, and act quickly. Something is wrong with you." But Joshua was a God-sent prophet and he knew the promises of God, so he waited for them. He waited for a clear cut decision from God and when the time came to move, God placed the full leadership in Joshua's hands because he had stayed with the Word. God could trust Joshua but not the others. So it will repeat in this end day. The same problem, the same pressures. Take the example we see in Moses. This mighty anointed prophet of God had a peculiar birth, being born at the right time for the deliverance of Abraham's seed from Egypt. He never stayed in Egypt to argue Scripture with them, nor fuss at the priests. He went to the wilderness until the people were ready to receive him. God called Moses to the wilderness. The waiting was not on Moses' part but because of the people who were not ready to receive him. Moses thought the people would understand but they did not.

Then there is Elijah to whom the Word of the Lord came. When he got through preaching the truth and that group back there that is the forerunner of the American Jezebel group would not receive the Word, God called him off the field and plagued that generation for rejecting the prophet and the message that God had given. God called him to the wilderness and he would not come out even for the king. Those who tried to persuade him to do so, died. But God spoke to His faithful prophet by vision. Out of hiding he came and brought back the Word to Israel. (Typing Brother Branham's ministry - Malachi 4:5-6 - Ed).

Then came John the Baptist, Christ's faithful forerunner, the mighty prophet for his day. He did not go to his father's school, nor the school of the Pharisees—he went to no denomination, but out to the wilderness called there by God. There he stayed until the Lord sent him out with the message, crying, 'The Messiah is at hand.'

Now let us take a Scriptural warning here. Was it not in the days of Moses whom God had vindicated that Korah rose up and withstood that mighty prophet? He disputed with Moses and claimed that he had as much from God to lead the people and that others shared in the Divine revelation as well as did Moses. He denied the authority of Moses. Now the people back there, after they had heard the true Word and were well acquainted with the fact that a true prophet was vindicated of God, I say those people fell for Korah and his gainsayings. Korah was not a Scriptural prophet but the people in great numbers with their leaders went for him. How like the evangelists today with their golden calf schemes like Korah's. They look good to the people as Korah looked good then. They have blood on their foreheads, oil on their hands and balls of fire on the platform. They allow women preachers, let women cut their hair, wear slacks and shorts, and by-pass the Word of God for their own creeds and dogmas. That shows what kind of seed is in them. But not all the people turned on Moses and left the Word of God. No. The elect stayed with him. The same is happening again today. Many are leaving the Word but some are staying with it. But remember the parable of the wheat and tares. The tares have to be bundled for burning. These apostate churches are getting bound closer and closer together, ready for the fires of God's judgment. But the wheat is going to be gathered to the Master.

Now I want you to be very careful here and see this. God has promised that at the end time Malachi 4 is going to be fulfilled. It has to be for it is the Spirit-quickened Word of God spoken by the prophet Malachi. Jesus referred to it. It is just before Christ comes the second time. By the time Jesus comes all Scripture must be fulfilled. The Gentile dispensation will be in its last church age when that messenger of Malachi comes. He will be right with the Word. He will take the whole Bible from Genesis to Revelation. He will start at the serpent's seed and carry on to the messenger in the latter rain. But he will be rejected by the denominations.

He has to be for that is history repeating itself from the time of Ahab. Israel's history under Ahab is happening right here in America where the prophet of Malachi appears. As Israel left Egypt to worship in freedom, pushed out the natives, raised up a nation with great leaders like David etc., and then put an Ahab on the throne with a Jezebel behind him to direct, so have we done the very same in America. Our forefathers left for this land to worship and live in freedom. They pushed back the natives and took over the land. Mighty men like Washington and Lincoln were raised up but after awhile other men of such poor caliber succeeded these worthy men that soon an Ahab was set in the presidential chair (John Kennedy) with a Jezebel (the Roman Catholic church) behind him to direct him. It is at such a time as this that the messenger of Malachi must come. Then in the latter rain will come a Mount Carmel showdown (the spoken Word of the 'third pull' against man-made creed and dogma in the manifestation of the Sons of God as when Elijah withstood the four hundred prophets of Baal and the four hundred and fifty prophets of Astarte – I Kings 18:17-46 - Ed). Watch this carefully now to see it in the Word. John was the forerunner of Malachi 3. He planted the former rain and was rejected by the organizations of his day. Jesus came and had a Mount Transfiguration show down (through which He vindicated John the Baptist by revealing Himself as the Word John's ministry had introduced – Matthew 17:1-13 - Ed). The second forerunner of Christ will sow for the latter rain (by restoring the apostolic faith of the former rain - Ed). Jesus (the fullness of the Word - Ed) will be the showdown between the denominations and creeds, for He will come to back up His Word (by the 'third pull' - Ed) and take His bride in the rapture. The first showdown was Mount Carmel; the second was the Mount Transfiguration, and the third will be Mount Zion.

(In Israel when a son born into his father's house came of age, having proven himself worthy he was taken to a public place and formally adopted as one with his father (John 17:21-26 - Ed). Prominently seated and dressed in a special robe, it was pronounced that hereafter his word was equal in authority to that of his father; whatever he said, his father would honour as the obedient youth had proven responsible in honouring his father's word. This "mount Zion Showdown" will be our formal placing as Sons and full adoption, firstly in the vindication of our spoken Word in the 'third pull,' and secondly when our old garment of corruptible flesh is changed to glorified flesh).

The strange behaviour of Moses, Elijah, and John withdrawing from the people into seclusion left many confused. They did not realize that it was because their messages had been rejected. But the seed had been sown, the planting was over. Judgment was next. They had served their purpose as a sign to the people, so judgment was next.

I believe according to Revelation 13:16 that the bride will have to stop preaching for the beast is demanding the mark in the hand or forehead if permission to preach be granted. Denominations will take the mark, or be forced to quit preaching. Then the Lamb will come for His bride and judge the great harlot.

Now remember that Moses was born for a certain work, but he could not do that work until he had received the gifts which would enable him to do the work. He had to go out in the desert and wait there; God had an appointed time. There was to be a certain Pharaoh on the throne, and the people had to be crying for the bread of life, before God could send him back. This is true for our day.

But what do we have in this our day? Multitudes are working signs until we have a generation of sign seekers that know little or nothing about the Word, or a true move of the Spirit of God. If they see blood, oil and fire they are happy; it matters not what is in the Word. They will support any sign, even unscriptural ones. But God has warned us about that. He said in Matthew 24 that in the last days the two spirits would be so close together that only the very elect could tell them apart, for they alone would not be deceived.

How can you tell the spirits apart? Just give them the Word test. If they don't speak that Word, they are of the evil one. As the evil one deceived the first two brides, he will try to deceive the bride of this last day, by trying to get her to hybridize herself through creeds, or just plainly turning from the Word to any sign that suits her. But God never placed signs ahead of the Word. Signs follow the Word, as when Elijah told the woman to bake a cake for him first, according to the Word of the Lord. When she did as the Word said, the proper sign came. Come to the Word first and then watch the miracle. The seed Word is energized by the Spirit.

How can any messenger sent from God believe only a part of the Word and deny some of it? The true prophet of God in this last day will proclaim the whole Word. Denominations will hate him. His words may be as harsh as John the Baptist who called them vipers. But the predestinated will hear and be ready for the rapture. The Royal Seed of Abraham, with like faith as Abraham's will hold to the Word with him, for they are predestinated together.

The last day messenger will appear in God's appointed time. It is the end time now as all know, for Israel is in the homeland. Any time now he will come according to Malachi. When we see him, he will be dedicated to the Word. He will be indicated (pointed out in the Word - Revelation 10:7), and God will vindicate his ministry. He will preach the truth as did Elijah and be ready for the Mount Zion showdown. (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 170:1 – 176:2).

Jesus was the Logos, the Spoken Word of Isaiah 14:7 manifest in the dust of the earth transformed into the food Mary ate. At the age of thirty the Sacrifice was baptized in water and anointed by the Holy Spirit as witnessed by the Shekinah in the form of a dove and a Voice said, "This is My beloved Son, in Whom I am pleased to dwell in." God was redeeming that part of the earth, that body was the beginning of God creating Himself a part of creation. Only in Christ is He a creation, because God is the eternal uncreated Spirit.

Ours is a natural birth, but by grace through faith we were baptized in water, sanctified by the Word and our soul was cleansed by Holy Fire and regenerated when the Spirit and took His abode and claimed our body for the resurrection as it did His, who was raised for our justification. And "Every one the Father has given Me will come to Me; and he who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out; for I came down from heaven, not to do My will but the will of Him who sent Me. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that I should lose nothing of all that He has given Me, but raise it up again at the last day" (John 6:37-39). You are an Attribute of the Logos God redeemed on Jordan's banks and raised on the third day. You are the continuation of the creation of God, for the Bible is the story of God unfolding Himself or changing His form from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts to the flesh of His glorified family through manifested faith in His spoken Word.

After the Millennium the whole earth will have a baptism and be renewed, and the Holy Ghost will come down from heaven upon a fifteen hundred-mile high mount Zion in the form of new Jerusalem, for "the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with us, and we will be His people, and God Himself will be with us, and be our God" (Revelation 21:1-3). We are the daughters of Zion: Jesus and His Bride is "the Mountain of the Temple of the Lord," or "mountain of the Lord's house" and (relatively speaking) mount Zion will be the only mountain in the new heavens and new earth (Isaiah 2:2-4, 12-17; 40:4-5; Micah 4:1-2; Zechariah 14:9-11; Revelation 21:10-27). In the latter rain the mount Zion showdown will be the vindication of God's Word made flesh in His end time Bride in the manifestation of the Sons of God and our translation.

When Elijah confronted Ahab he told him to gather all Israel to mount Carmel with the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal and the four hundred prophets of the groves whom Jezebel maintained (typing the beast and its image). And said, "How long will you halt between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, then follow him." He asked the people to provide two bullocks. Each party would build an altar, prepare and lay their bullock on the wood, "and call upon the name of his god; let the God that answers by sending fire to receive and consume the sacrifice be God".

Well, the denominational priests called on the name of Baal from morning until noon when the Sun-god should be at his strength; they spoke with other tongues, prophesied, cut their bodies and raved all afternoon until the time of the evening sacrifice (when Christ's Bride will be waved and offered back to the Lord), "but there was no voice, no one answered or recognized their prayers".

It was time for the manifestation of the Sons of God, time for the Elijah of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 to gather the twelve tribes back to Israel and to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel. The prophet prepared his altar, laid the sacrifice on the wood, and commanded the people to baptize the bullock and the wood with twelve barrels of water; he then called upon the Lord to vindicate His Word by receiving the evening sacrifice (Revelation 8), and restore the heart of Israel. Then Fire from God came down and consumed the sacrifice, the wood, the stones (Israel) and the dust; it even evaporated all the water in the trench surrounding the altar".

"And when all of the people saw it, they fell on their faces (not on their backs as they do before the Jezebel priests of the Catholic Charismatic movement), shouting, Jehovah is God! Jehovah is God! And Elijah commanded them to kill every one of the prophets of Baal." Then came the latter rain.

I Kings 18:41-46, "Elijah said to Ahab, Get up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of abundance of rain. So Ahab went up to eat and to drink while Elijah climbed to the top of Carmel; and he knelt down with his face between his knees, and said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea. And he got up, looked, and said, There is nothing at all. And he said seven times, Go back. At the seventh time he said, There is a small cloud the size of a man's hand rising out of the sea. And he said, Go up, tell Ahab, Prepare your chariot and go down, lest the rain stop you. And before long the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel. And the hand of the Lord was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel". nl533.htm

The Former and Latter Rain - Part I

Bible Believers' Newsletter #532
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
ISSN 1442-8660

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are pleased you could join us in fellowship.

In this issue, current news wins more space than our main article because in spite a controlled mass media the character and activities of those working to realize Lucifer's totalitarian one world government are increasingly exposed to the Light. We are fast approaching the climax of the Gentile dispensation: knowledge has increased, the wicked are doing wickedly, and only the wise with a more sure Word of prophecy will understand. The wheat and the tares are both ripe for harvest. The tares are being bound together by chains of iniquity in false "Free Trade" agreements, globalization, multiculturalism, and a World Council of Churches, ready for hellfire, while the present Truth is separating the Wheat Bride into the unity of the faith in preparation for the manifestation of the Sons of God and our gathering into His garner.

In this week's news Pharisaism and Catholicism finally admit they are mother and daughter as history and the Bible record. Although theirs is not a loving relationship, these hostile partners are two of the more visible and prominent players in the quest for world hegemony. Each of these tragedians impersonating Scripture will be destroyed once they have played their treacherous roles, as it is written (Isaiah 63:1-6; Daniel 9:27). In their apostasy God has sent them a strong delusion to believe what is false, so that they are not impersonating but actually fulfilling Scripture that they might be damned for not believing the Truth but taking pleasure in wickedness (Matthew 23:33; Revelation 2:20-23). Their darkness is palpable to those blessed with eyes that can see and ears that can hear (Matthew 13:16).

Last week we quoted Isaiah 1:2 which spoke of the blindness of apostate Israel at the close of the Old Testament and the parallel with apostate Christendom today at the close of grace (Romans 11:32). God said, "The ox knows his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel does not know Me; My people do not care." This week's news items disclose the face and character of those who, during the tribulation, will be absolute masters of all who do not know the Lord.

The greatest Man in history had no servants, yet they called Him Master. He had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher. He had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer. He had no army, yet kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him. He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today. I feel honored to serve such a Leader who loves us and died, rising again that you and I might have Life more abundantly.

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

RBS issues Global Stock and Credit Crash Alert
June 19, 2008 – The Royal Bank of Scotland has advised clients to brace for a full-fledged crash in global stock and credit markets over the next three months as inflation paralyses the major central banks. . .

A report by the bank's research team warns that the S&P 500 index of Wall Street equities is likely to fall by more than 300 points to around 1050 by September as "all the chickens come home to roost" from the excesses of the global boom, with contagion spreading across Europe and emerging markets. Such a slide on world bourses would amount to one of the worst bear markets over the last century. . . Full story: telegraph.co.uk

Support for euro in doubt as Germans reject Latin bloc notes. Ordinary Germans have begun to reject euro bank notes with serial numbers from Italy, Spain, Greece and Portugal, raising concerns that public support for monetary union may be waning in the eurozone's anchor country.

John Paul II taught Universal Salvation, that All Men will be Saved
The Heresies of John Paul II, the most traveled man in history and perhaps the most heretical.

The only difficulty in discussing the heresies of John Paul II is deciding where to begin. His heresies are so numerous that one is almost overwhelmed with the decision of where to start. A good place to begin is his consistent teaching of universal salvation. The idea that all men are saved is contrary to the clear words of the Gospel and numerous Catholic dogmas, especially the dogmas that outside the Catholic Church there is no salvation and that all who die in original sin or mortal sin cannot be saved. . .

With a doctrine such as this, who wouldn't be loved by the world? John Paul II appealed to, and was loved by the masses, because he accepted everyone's religion and taught that everyone is united with Christ no matter what they believed or did. This religious indifferentism characterized his anti-pontificate. . . In taking part in a Jewish worship service, John Paul II committed a public act of apostasy, and showed again that he was a manifest heretic and an apostate. . . John Paul II and the rabbi greeted each other as if they were long-lost best friends. During his stay at the synagogue, John Paul II bowed his head as the Jews prayed for the coming of their "Messiah."

Jewish Author George Orwell (Alias Eric Blair) warned the World
Are you an unintentional anti-Semite? The US State Department's "Office of Global Anti-Semitism" warns not just of conscious, intentional anti-Semitism but of another lurking form of potential bigotry: unintentional anti-Semitism. . . this consists of criticisms of Israel which, though true, might be manipulated by others to Israel's detriment. To avoid assisting Israel's enemies, the State Department recommends that every comment about Israel (including its leaders and military) first be scrutinized for whether it could put Israel in a bad light. If so, it shouldn't be said. Only then can we consider ourselves both consciously and unconsciously free from anti-Semitism.

Today, evangelicals reflexively honor the code that, no matter how true an unflattering fact or opinion about Jews may be, it will not be repeated. As a result of a century of self-censorship, tens of millions of evangelicals live in a virtual iron curtain of exclusion of truth about Jews, Judaism and Israel. Taught to see, hear, and speak no evil of Israel, they subsist on a religious and political diet of Zionist-approved pabulum. The magnitude of truth that has never been allowed to reach them is encyclopedic.

Evangelicals think that, by only speaking well of Jews, they are beyond the reproach of ever being labeled anti-Semitic. Wrong. The state department says that if Christians believe the New Testament account that Jewish leaders had Christ crucified they are the very worst kind of anti-Semites: 'classical' anti-Semites. . . Because statements of truth affirm reality, they are akin to God Himself, the ultimate Reality. Jesus said, "Thy Word is truth" (John 17:17).

Rome and the Jews: Noahide Laws in the News
The Kosher-Catholic Paulist Press published Elijah ben Abraham Benamozegh's (1823-1900) "Noahide" tome "Israel and Humanity" as a "Classic of Western Spirituality." Israel and Humanity forms a grand synthesis of Benamozegh's religious thought. It is at once a wide-ranging summa of scriptural, Talmudic, Midrashic, and Kabbalistic ideas, and an intensely personal account of Jewish identity. It is also a systematic, meticulously reasoned philosophy of Judaism in its relation to the other religions of mankind, especially its daughter religions, Christianity and Islam.

The Anti-Defamation League's Interfaith Affairs Director Emeritus Rabbi Leon Klenicki who champion's the Kabbalist Elijah Benamozegh's attempt to transform Christendom into a "Noahide" Golem, was made a papal knight by Benedict XVI in 2007.

In 1998 Rabbi Knight Leon Klenicki launched an inquisition against the heresy of "Holocaust denial" saying, "The deniers of the Holocaust in Europe now have to deal with the Vatican."

I hope that opponents of "dual-covenant" theory will read this interview closely because it reveals a truth regarding this theory that is missed by most investigators, which is, "dual-covenant" theory is the "Noahide Laws." According to the Rabbis, "Jews" have their own exclusive covenant and the other "70 Nations" have another non-Biblical, lower-tier covenant which the rabbis contrived for them which culminates in the Talmudic "Noahide Laws."

Never forget that when the rabbis and the bishops "dialogue" about "dual-covenant" theory, that it's the Talmudic "Noahide covenant" that applies for Christians, not the Biblical covenants. Their challenge is to make the Talmudic "Noahide Laws" appear to be Biblical. We saw a Vatican attempt at this impossible task last year:

Papal Commission Promotes Noahide Laws.

This is all pretended in accordance with the popular delusion that Christianity is the "daughter religion" of rabbinic Judaism–a ridiculous proposition if there ever was one.

Did you know that the ADL has an office in the Vatican? Did you know that the Anti-Defamation League's Director of Catholic-Jewish Relations, Papal Knight, Dr. Joseph L. Lichten, was a major player at the Second Vatican Council? As head of ADL's Vatican Liaison Office, he was given the rare gift of an office in the Vatican itself and he continued to teach at the North American college, where only the finest young Americans studying for the priesthood are privileged to attend.

During the deliberations of the Second Vatican Council, he gave every bishop a copy of an ADL-sponsored survey of American anti-Semitism which pointed out the influence of the deicide charge on American Catholics. The final Council vote on Nostra Aetate showed the church's special concern and Joe Lichten's profound influence. . .

Comment: Roman Catholicism is a true daughter of Talmudic Judaism, which is Pharisaism. Christianity is the prophetic fulfilment of Yahweh Torah, the faith of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, of Moses and the prophets of Israel. There can be no concord between Christ and the Babylonian religions of either Judaism or its Judaeo-Roman Catholic daughter (Amos 3:3; II Corinthians 6:14-18).

Rabbi Ovadia Yoseph, spiritual head of Israel's Shahs party, argued in a 1989 article that although Israel is not yet strong enough to expel and destroy "churches [which] are definitely places of idolatry and cult practice. . . we are commanded by our Law to destroy all idolatry and its servants until we uproot it from all parts of our land and any areas that we are able to conquer" (Dr. Israel Shahak and Professor Norton Mezvinsky, Jewish Fundamentalism in Israel, 1999).

Since Talmudic Judaism considers Christians idolaters of the false god Jesus, the rabbi is teaching that if things were as he believes they one day shall be, all Christian "idolaters" should be killed worldwide!

The people of the earth are idolaters, and it has been written about them: Let them be wiped off the face of the earth. Destroy the memory of the Amalekites (Talmud, Bereshith, 25a).

Rabbi Jehudah said to him, [Rabbi Chezkia]): "He is to be praised who is able to free himself from the enemies of Israel, and the just are much to be praised who get free from them and fight against them." Rabbi Chezkia asked, "How must we fight against them?" Rabbi Jeduha said: "By wise counsel thou shalt war against them." (Proverbs 24:6) By what kind of war? The kind of war that every son of man must war against his enemies, which Jacob used against Esau—by deceit and trickery wherever possible. They must be fought against without ceasing, until proper order be restored. Thus it is with satisfaction that I say we should free ourselves from them and rule over them" (Zohar, I, 160a).

Are these the ravings of bigoted medieval rabbis, too absurd to be taken seriously by modern religious Jews? Quite the contrary. Ultra-orthodox settlers live and breathe the Zohar, as do their Hassidic brethren worldwide. The preface to the 1984 Soncino edition of The Zohar Volume 4 (of 5 volumes translated by Sperling and Simon) says:

"The Zohar appeals to many Jews in a way that makes them regard it as the most sacred of sacred books! For it mirrors Judaism as an intensely vital religion of the spirit. More overpoweringly than any other book or code, more even than the Bible, does it give the Jew the conviction of an inner, unseen spiritual universe—an eternal moral order" (p. 12).

Kabbalistic "mystic sentiment and emotion," the preface continues, is "indispensable to Judaism if it is to continue to play its predestined part in bringing mankind 'under the wings of the shekinah,'" (i.e. Jewish world domination. p. 25).

The Christians are idolaters,[1][1] and Sunday is their holiday . . . (Maimonides, Mishneh Torah, Avodah Zorah, 9;4).

The Christians are worshipers of Avodah Zorah [idolatry] (Maimonides, Mishneh Torah, Ma'akhalot Assurot, 11:7).

It is a mitzvah [religious duty], however, to eradicate Jewish traitors, minim, and apikorsim, [sincere Jewish converts to Christianity] and to cause them to descend to the pit of destruction, since they cause difficulty to the Jews and sway the people away from God, as did Jesus of Nazareth and his students, and Tzadok, Baithos, and their students. May the name of the wicked rot (Maimonides, Mishneh Torah, Chapter 10).

". . . a gentile who worships false gods is liable, [for the death penalty] provided he worships them in the accepted manner. A gentile is executed for every type of foreign worship which a Jewish court would consider worthy of capital punishment (Maimonides, Hilchot Melachim XI, Mishneh Torah).

The Talmud corroborates Maimonides' judgment:

A non-Jew is put to death on the basis of a decision given by one judge [no jury], and on the basis of testimony given by a single witness, and even if he was not given a proper warning prior to the commission of his offense. He is put to death on the basis of testimony and a decision given by a man but not on the basis of testimony and a decision given by a woman, and the man who testified or decided against him can even be a relative. A Jew can only be put to death by a court of twenty-three judges, and on the basis of the testimony of two male witnesses who are not disqualified from testifying on account of kinship, and after being properly warned against committing the transgression. But none of these rules apply in the case of a non-Jew (Talmud, Sanhedrin 57b, Steinsaltz edition, vol.18, page 110).

The Jewish Encyclopedia affirms that the punishment for Christian "idolatry" is beheading.[2][2].

The Talmud is quite clear on the matter (Jesus and His followers are idolaters and liable for death—"Surely he [Jesus of Nazareth] incited others to idol worship and regarding such a person the Torah says (Deuteronomy 13:9): 'You shall not spare nor shall you conceal him'. . ." (Talmud, Sanhedrin 43a, Steinsaltz edition p. 159) and the Talmud is accepted as dispositive by a majority of Judaic sects.

"The Bavli [Babylonian Talmud] has formed the definitive statement of Judaism from the time of its closure to the present day" (Rabbi Jacob Neusner, quoted by Norman F. Cantor, The Sacred Chain: A History of the Jews, page 112).

Pope Benedict XVI calls Rabbi Jacob Neusner a "great Jewish scholar" (Jesus of Nazareth, Benedict XVI, p.71). ". . . the Babylonian Talmud represents God in the flesh. . ." (Rabbi Jacob Neusner, Rabbinic Judaism, Minneapolis MN: Augsburg Fortress, 1995. p. 62).

"You are adam ["man"], but goyim [gentiles] are not called adam ["man"]" (Kerithoth 6b).

". . . 'living soul' designates Israel because they are children of the Almighty, and their souls, which are holy, come from Him. From whence come the souls of other peoples? R[abbi] Eleazar said: 'They obtain souls from those sides of the left which convey impurity, and therefore they are all impure and defile those who have contact with them.' . . .'living soul' refers to Israel, who have holy living souls from above, and 'cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth,' to the other peoples who are not 'living soul,' but who are as we have said" (Bereshith 47a. Here is the root of the "Two Souls" heresy).

Some of the Turks and the nomads in the North, and the Blacks and the nomads in the South, and those who resemble them in our climates. And their nature is like the nature of mute animals, and according to my opinion they are not on the level of human beings, and their level among existing things is below that of a man and above that of a monkey, because they have the image and the resemblance of a man more than a monkey does (Maimonides, Guide for the Perplexed, Book III, chapter 51][3]).

George W Bush meets Pope amid claims He might convert to Catholicism
June 13, 2008 – After a stroll through the Vatican gardens, the men listened to a recital by the choir of the Sistine Chapel. . . A source close to the Vatican said that Mr. Bush was the most "Catholic-minded" president since John F. Kennedy, who famously played down his Catholicism. . . However, it is thought unlikely that Mr. Bush would convert until after he has left office. Jeb Bush, the president's brother, has already converted to Catholicism.

Catholics have noted that during the contested election in 2000, Jeb Bush traveled to Mexico and prayed to the icon of Our Lady of Guadeloupe. His victory was announced by the Supreme Court on December 12, the feast day of the Lady of Guadeloupe. Full story: telegraph.co.uk

EU Dictators may ram through Lisbon Treaty Despite Irish Rejection
June 13, 2008 – Spearheaded by British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, the EU and its member states, in their relentless pursuit of a federal superstate, may break its own laws and ram through the Lisbon Treaty despite it being rejected by Irish voters today.

Under EU laws, if one of its member states rejects a treaty, the EU is mandated to scrap the bill. But the European Union's contempt for direct democracy is likely to lead them to ignore the Irish referendum and pursue the implementation of the Lisbon Treaty anyway – underscoring the fact the EU is nothing more than an illegitimate dictatorship of manufactured consent. . . Today's surprise rejection of the treaty has been met with total arrogance by British Prime Minister Gordon Brown whom, according to reports, called French President Nicolas Sarkozy, "to assure him that British ratification would continue". . .

John McCain's Chilling Project for America
June 12, 2009 – John McCain has long been a major player in a radical militaristic group driven by an ideology of global expansionism and dominance attained through perpetual, pre-emptive, unilateral, multiple wars. The credo of this group is "the end justifies the means," and the end of establishing the United States as the world's sole superpower justifies, in its estimation, anything from military control over the information on the Internet to the use of genocidal biological weapons. Over its two terms, the George W. Bush administration has planted the seeds for this geopolitical master plan, and now appears to be counting on the McCain administration, if one comes to power, to nurture it. . .

B'Tselem – The Israeli Center for the Investigation of Human Rights in the Occupied Territories
June 13, 2008 – For the past year, B'Tselem has handed out video cameras to Palestinians as part of its "Shooting Back" project. The BBC has been given exclusive access to the footage of this particular attack. . . Over the brow of the hill walk four masked men holding baseball bats. To the right of the screen, in the foreground, stands a 58-year-old Palestinian woman. Thamam al-Nawaja has been herding her goats close to the Jewish settlement of Susia, near Hebron in the southern West Bank. Within a few seconds, she, along with her 70-year-old husband and one of her nephews, will be beaten up.

As the first blows land, the woman filming—the daughter-in-law of the elderly couple—drops the camera and runs for help. Mrs. Nawaja spent three days in hospital after the attack. . . A dark stain showed through the white gauze covering her broken right arm. Her veil was lifted gingerly away from her lined face. A bloodshot eye and intersection of scars revealed a fractured left cheek.

"The settlers gave us a 10-minute warning to clear off from the land," she told me, her voice a tired, cracked whisper. She and her husband had stood their ground. It is at this point that her voice grows louder. "They don't want us to stay on our land. But we won't leave. We'll die here. It's ours," she added. . .

Global Warming: the Scientific Hoax Exposed
If there ever were a layer of "greenhouse" gases which is reflecting heat from the earth and raising the temperature of the earth, then it should still be there as a gaseous layer at night. Why would it go away just when the sun goes down? It couldn't and it wouldn't. But if that "greenhouse" layer did exist . . . on a clear starry night . . . you could not feel the cold of outer space since the "greenhouse" gases would reflect heat back to your hand, just like a cloud, and you couldn't feel the cold of space. It would be just like a cloudy night, but you would still see the stars. . . Thus proving that there is NO "greenhouse" gas layer which reflects heat back to earth . . . and never has been and never will be. . .

[N]o astronomer who measures the universal background radiation temperature has ever said, "We can't measure the temperature of space anymore because there is a huge reflective greenhouse layer which measures 300 degrees Kelvin. So we can't see the 3 degrees Kelvin background anymore." No astronomer has ever said that, thus proving absolutely, there is NO "greenhouse" gas layer. Absolutely none. Any, even slight greenhouse effect would raise the apparent background temperature of the night sky by hundreds of degrees. . .

This is a very simple and fun experiment which even kids can do and shows much about scientific principles. You take two balloons and blow them up to the same size, about one foot or so, depending on the size of the balloon. The size is not important, just simply that they are the same size when blown up with air. One of the principles of chemistry and thermodynamics is that if I have two balloons of the exact same size, they will have exactly the same number of molecules of gas in each one.

Advanced students can find out what that number of molecules is called and even how to calculate that number. But let's just call it one jillion molecules. Since the air is made up mostly of di-atomic molecules of Nitrogen and Oxygen, there are two atoms inside each molecule of air. So each balloon has exactly TWO jillion atoms inside. If they both have the same number of molecules and atoms then they should weigh exactly the same. If you hold up both balloons and then let go, they will slowly drift down to the floor. You've probably seen this a lot at birthday parties and such. You know what it looks like.

Now take one of the balloons and instead of air, blow it up to the same size with Carbon Dioxide gas. But the CO2 molecule is made of two atoms of Oxygen, just like the air, and then also has an extra Carbon atom inside each molecule. That's why it is called Carbon DiOxide—or one carbon atom and two oxygen atoms in each molecule of gas. So if I have the same size balloon filled with CO2, now instead of just two jillion atoms, this balloon contains THREE jillion atoms. That means the weight of the CO2 balloon is half again heavier than the balloon full of air. In science, that is called the specific gravity and for CO2, it is 1.5 times that of air, meaning it weighs half again more than 1.0 which is the specific gravity of air. This is like weighing two tennis balls, and then three tennis balls, and saying that three tennis balls weighs much more than just two tennis balls. Thus the CO2 balloon is much heavier than air. If you hold up the CO2 balloon and let go, it drops like a rock. Why? Because it is much heavier than air.

What this proves is that CO2 molecule which comes out of cars burning hydrocarbon fuels, does not make a gas which rises miles high up in the atmosphere and creates a thick layer of Carbon Dioxide which reflects heat and becomes a "greenhouse" layer gas. No! No! If you have ever watched smog coming from cars, it hangs close to the ground, and then disappears over night. At most it will rise up several hundred feet into the air during the daytime and no higher. Why does it disappear? Because all the components of smog, such as: CO2, Ozone and smoky unburned hydrocarbons are all much heavier than air, and over night when it is cool and calm they all sink to the ground. They do not magically rise up high, all by themselves, into the sky to become a high altitude "greenhouse" layer.

Hot air balloons can rise up in the air, but heavier-than-air craft, such as airplanes do not rise up all by themselves to become a thick layer of heavy airplanes floating in the sky. It will never happen, could never happen and has never happened. It cannot happen with CO2 which is also much heavier than air. And as I have just showed you, with these three simple experiments, which you can do yourself—you can prove it for yourself. . . Full story: brojon.org

The Former and Latter Rain – Part I


James 5:1-9, "Come now you wealthy, weep and howl for the miseries that are coming upon you. Your hoarded wealth has decayed, your fine clothes are motheaten, your gold and silver have rusted; and their rust will be evidence against you. As fire that you have stored up for the last days, it will eat your flesh."

"The cries of the labourers who have reaped your fields, whose wages you have kept back by fraud have reached into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. You have lived a life of ease and pleasure on earth, and been wanton; you have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter. You have condemned, you have killed the righteous man without his resisting you."

"Therefore endure patiently brethren, until the ['parousia'] Coming of the Lord. Take notice how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the soil, continuing patiently until he receives the former and latter rain. So you keep waiting patiently, and take courage, for the ['parousia'] Coming of the Lord is at hand." Christ's 'parousia' Coming was in 1963; He has come and He is present now. "Don't grumble against one another brethren, for you yourselves are not above criticism. Look! The Judge stands before the door" (John 5:22, 27)!!!

Tilling the ground and rearing cattle were the chief employments in ancient times (Genesis 2:15; 4:2-3, 12). The Egyptians excelled in agriculture, and after the Israelites entered into possession of the Promised Land agriculture became the basis of the Mosaic commonwealth. Their skill at once made Palestine into a garden.

Israel was an agrarian economy and their religious feasts followed the seasons ruled by the greater and lesser lights as the natural types the Spiritual (Genesis 1:14). As farming is dependent upon the former rainfall at seedtime and the latter rain before the beginning of harvest, so God's spoken Word requires heavy showers of blessing from heaven to quicken eternal Life in the soul of His elect, followed up by refreshing showers of the latter rain for the manifestation of the Sons of God and harvest-Home once the revelation of Christ's 'parousia' has brought us to maturity in the unity of the faith (Acts 3:19-21; Ephesians 4:13).

Rain seldom fell in Judea except at two seasons: the former rain at the end of autumn for seedtime; and the latter rain in spring before the beginning of harvest (Jeremiah 5:24). However, there are three Hebrew words used to denote the rains of different seasons:



Yowreh (Hosea 6:3), or mowreh (Joel 2:23), denotes the "former" or "early rains" which commence in Autumn in late October or the beginning of November, and continue to fall heavily for two months.

Malqowsh, the "latter" (Proverbs 16:15) or "Spring rains" fall in March and April, and serve to swell the grain then coming to maturity (Deuteronomy 11:14; Hosea 6:3). After this there is ordinarily no rain, the sky being bright and cloudless till October or November.

Geshem, "the rains," are heavy "Winter rains" that fall from mid-December to March. There is no prolonged fair weather in Palestine between October and March (Genesis 7:12; Ezra 10:9; Songs 2:11).
Rain is referred to symbolically as doctrine in Deuteronomy 32:2; as Messiah in Psalm 72:6; and as an anointing of the Holy Spirit in Joel 2:23.

In the natural, Autumn or early rains fall before sowing so there is moisture in the soil to fertilize the seed. The Hebrew word 'mowreh' also means "teacher" so in the Spiritual, the former rain is the teaching wherewith the Seed of God's Word planted in the soul of His elect by the spoken word of parents, Sunday school teachers or acquaintances later in life is quickened by hearing or reading the present Truth. This revelation gives the baptism with the Holy Ghost, or new birth.

God's elect may be one with no knowledge of the Lord, an unregenerate minister who has written and lectured in theology, a criminal or a plutocrat who has never grasped the revelation of the "letter" learned as a youth. Yet each in his appointed season will hear or read what, added to what he already knows, will generate understanding, causing Scripture to fit with Scripture and bringing Light on the present Truth. This is the new birth that reproduces new Life—God's own Life—in you. This is what took place at the inauguration of the Church on the day of Pentecost.

Jesus had said, "The Kingdom of God is not a geographical expanse to be observed with the eye. The Kingdom of God consists of the Word of God, and the Kingdom of God is within you. . ." when you see the revelation (Luke 17:20-23). The Pharisees and Judas Iscariot could not see, for Deuteronomy 29:4, Isaiah 6:9-10, Jeremiah 5:21 and Ezekiel 5:22 foretold Israel's Spiritual blindness as a nation (Romans 11:25). Jesus told the twelve, "Blessed are your eyes, for they see; and your ears, for they hear" (Matthew 13:10-17).

As the vision was clearly understood the Kingdom was potentially in the hundred and twenty before they gathered in the upper room yet they could not be re-born until their sins were remitted when "the day of Pentecost was fully come." Then the Holy Spirit took residence in Christ's mystic Body, which He signified as the place of His rest or Temple by the visible Presence of the Shekinah, which divided itself and rested upon each of the inaugural members of the Church (Isaiah 66:1). This sign vindicated His Presence in the Tabernacle (Exodus 40:34-35), Solomon's Temple (I Kings 8:10-11), the Temple of Jesus Christ (Matthew 3:16-17), and will be His glorious banner of love over New Jerusalem in the new heavens and new earth (Revelation 21:22-23).

As no man could enter the Tabernacle or the Temple whilst the Shekinah of the Lord's Presence filled not only the Holy of Holies but the sanctuary and its courts, so the New Testament saints could not be glorified and enter the heavenly Temple until the seventh angel has poured out his Vial after the close of the Gentile dispensation in the ordeal of jealousy that will distinguish the foolish virgin from the harlot church (Revelation 15:8; 16:17).

At Pentecost the former or teaching rain fell upon the early Church which had a predominantly Hebrew congregation. In The Acts of the Holy Spirit in the Apostles 2:16-17 Peter said, "This is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel: And it shall come to pass in the last days, said the Lord, I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh. . ." The same rain anointed the prophet Paul who had studied the Law and the prophets at the feet of Gamaliel, the leading teacher in his day. Paul had been a Pharisee and an elder among the Sanhedrin, whose seventy-one members were the chief priests or heads of the twenty-four courses, those who had been high priests, and the elders and scribes learned in the Law.

As a matter of interest, they tried cases of idolatry and false prophets. On this allegation Jesus, and subsequently Peter, John, Stephen, and Paul were brought before them (John 11:47). The Gemara states that the power of life and death was taken from them just forty years before the destruction of Jerusalem, coinciding with John 18:31-32. Hence they took Jesus before Pontius Pilate on a different charge to that of blasphemy, for which the Sanhedrin had condemned Him, viz. that of treason against Caesar, the only one which Pilate would have entertained. The stoning of Stephen was an illegal assumption of power, an outbreak of fanatical violence, as also the execution of the apostle James in the procurator's absence (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, xx. 9:1).

After Paul was born-again and received his calling as an apostle, that great master of the Law and Prophets went down to Arabia to study in seclusion for three years. Based upon the shadows and types of the Old Testament he was inspired with "the faith once delivered unto the apostolic saints." Paul introduced the Gospel to the Gentiles, and as their numbers grew over the first three Church Ages, the signs ceased, "For Judeans require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom" (I Corinthians 1:22).

The former rain reproduced the Life of Christ in the apostolic saints who make up one of two wave loaves of the firstfruits of the Spirit that will be waved before the Lord in the manifestation of the Sons of God for the resurrection of the Church Age saints (Leviticus 23:17). Pentecost was the antitype of the last six days of Israel's feast of Unleavened Bread which types the pure Word of God before it became leavened (Leviticus 23:10-14).

Pentecost lasted from AD33 to about AD 53, followed by the antitype of the seven sabbaths or rests of the first forty-nine days of the Pentecostal feast (Leviticus 23:15; Revelation 1–3). The saints predestinated to each of these seven Church Ages were baptized into their part of the Body by a different revelation of the Word, a unique baptism with the Holy Spirit producing a different virtue of the Spirit as the Lord "lifted up a standard" against the insidious attacks of the Evil one who sowed the tares. In the Ephesian Age (53-170) the Church left her "first love," Christ the Word, and allowed tares of "Jewish fables" and the "deeds of the nicolaitanes" to enter and usurp the preeminence of Christ.

This indulgent attitude allowed false Jews and false Christians to enter the Church in the Smyrnean Age (170-312), so that in Pergamos (312-606) these apostates, in league with the Imperium, organized the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church at the First Nicea Council (AD325). Balaamism was introduced, which is the substitution of creeds and dogma such as the pagan Babylonian Trinity, baptism in three Titles and Apostles' Creeds (so-called) in place of the revealed Word of God. And the "deeds of the nicolaitanes" became "doctrine" in this Judaeo-Roman Catholic dogma. Nicolaitanism separates the ministers from the people and makes the leaders overlords instead of servants. By the end of this Age the church was predominantly Gentile, pagan, and papal Rome had become the actual seat or power of Satanic religion (Revelation 2:13).

In Thyatira (606-1520) the seed died in apostasy and went back into the ground through almost a thousand years of Dark Ages. It revived in the Reformation of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic system of false worship under the Sardis (1520-1750), Philadelphian (1750-1906) and Laodicean (1906-1963) Church Ages. In Laodicea, also called Pentecost, the believers began to speak with other tongues and the Lord showed signs and wonders. Because of the revival in the gifts of the Spirit, some people became over-enthusiastic and thought this was the latter rain. But this was not possible since the teaching rain had not been restored.

The teaching rain or former rain was Brother Branham's ministry after the close of Laodicean Pentecost to restore the apostolic faith:

Malachi 4:5-6, "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: and he shall turn the heart of the apostolic fathers to those predestinated to be children born of God. (This was the fruit of the ministry of John the Baptist, the Elijah of Malachi 3:1 and Isaiah 40:3, three years after his death as evidenced in Acts 2, etc). And return the heart of the children back to the faith of their apostolic fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse." Or as Jesus said in Matthew 24:22, "Unless the days should be shortened (by the revelation of the Seven Seals "finishing the mystery of God" (Revelation 10:7) to call the "wise virgin" out from Mystery Babylon and her (once) Protestant daughter churches (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4) "into the unity of the faith" (Ephesians 4:13) for "the manifestation of the Sons of God" (Romans 8:19) and the translation – I Corinthians 15:46-57), there should be no flesh saved" for the translation.

The children of Israel are God's servant nation not His Children; and John the Baptist restored nothing. John was ordained to forerun Messiah's first Coming; had he restored Israel back to the faith of the Patriarch he would have denied the Law and abrogated His divine commission. John "laid the axe to the root of all trees" (Matthew 3:10), cut down and uprooted the religious principles of Essenes, Herodians, Zealots, and Pharisees in order to introduce the Word of God; so the second "Elijah" of this prophecy could not have been John.

After they had seen a vision of the return of the glorified Jesus in the Millennium preceded by the ministry of a "Moses" and an "Elijah" to the 144,000 elect Israelites, "His disciples asked, Why do the scribes say that Elijah must first come? And Jesus answered, Elijah truly shall first come, and restore all things" (Matthew 17:11) ". . . God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began" (Acts 3:21). That could not have been John the Baptist.

Matthew 17:12-13, "But I tell you, That Elijah has already come, and they knew him not, but decapitated him. Likewise shall the Son of man also suffer at their hands. Then the disciples understood that He spoke to them of John the Baptist".

God endues five men with the Spirit that anointed Elijah who was followed by Elisha with a double portion of the same Spirit (II Kings 2:12-15). The third "Elijah" was John the Baptist, fourth was William Branham to be followed by the two Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 seen by the disciples in the vision on mount Transfiguration.

Revelation 10:7, "In the days of the voice of the angel to the Seventh or Laodicean Church Age, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets".

Brother Branham was the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6 and the angel to the Laodicean Church Age. His Message is the former or teaching rain that restores Christ's end-time Bride back to the faith of the apostolic fathers for the manifestation of the Sons of God under the latter rain following the sinking of Los Angeles at the close of the Gentile dispensation. This is when the two loaves of the Alpha and Omega Bride will be presented to the Lord for His approval.

Joel 2:23-25, "Be glad, O sons of Zion (Christ's Bride), and rejoice in the Lord your God: for He has given you the former rain teaching righteousness for your vindication, and He will pour down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain when first it is needed. And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil. And I will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, My great army which I sent among you."

The Lutheran Age did not restore the church; it started a reformation. The Wesleyan Age did not restore. The Pentecostal Age did not restore. But God has to restore for He cannot deny His Word. This is not the resurrection of the Church; it is the "restoration." God has restored us right back to the Pentecost of the beginning. Verse 25 explains why we need restoration. The locust, cankerworm, caterpillar and palmerworm have eaten all but the root and a small bit of the stem. These are four stages in the life of the same insect. In the Spiritual realm they type Satan, the rider of the four horses of Revelation 6 in his attack upon the Christian Church under the first four Seals as the antichrist spirit manifested spiritual power, political power, demonic power and will soon incarnate himself in the pope, "that man of sin, the son of perdition." That poor little root and stalk is going to be restored. God is not going to plant a new Church, He is bringing His original planting back to original seed as stated in verse 23 by the teaching or former rain. The same teaching rain that instructed the early Church had to be restored to bring Christ's end-time Bride into the unity of the faith in preparation for the latter rain which will endue us with rapturing faith.

Luke 21:29-32, "Jesus told a parable; Observe the fig tree (Israel), and all the trees; (Baptist, Methodist, Pentecostals, Islam, and so forth), When they come into leaf you know by looking at them that summer (and the harvest of souls) is in the offing. In the same way, when you see these things taking place, be assured that the Kingdom of God is near. I assure you, all this will happen before this generation passes away".

The Reformation and all seven Church Ages are over. We are living under the Fourth Seal in which we are Spiritually redeemed, and under the Seventh Seal in which we have recognized the second or 'parousia' Coming of the Lord for our physical redemption. The Fifth Seal has been in process since Calvary, under which non-elect Israelites who die as martyrs for their testimony of the Law are "saved" because the Lord has allowed their denominational rabbis to blind them to the faith as the prophet foretold in order that Messiah might marry His Gentile Bride. Now God is baptizing His end-time Bride into the Capstone of the Body of the Church by the fullness of the Word through the revelation of the Seven Seals to restore His end-time Bride back to a W_O_R_D Bride like Her Word Groom.

Brother Branham said, "Jesus did NOT say no man could know the year, month or week in which His coming was to be completed" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:4). In the natural, the Spring or latter rain falls in the Passover month, at the end of March or early April to bring forward the crop toward full maturity and ripeness, so in the Spiritual the latter rain is our harvest rain. . . Now you know! This will be a fresh outpouring after the close of the Gentile dispensation at the sinking of Los Angeles to enable Christ's end-time Bride to operate the 'third pull' to vindicate that we are the Sons of God. When omnipotence speaks miracles happen! This manifestation of the spoken Word will raise faith in us so that we can change in the atoms and meet the Lord in the Air. nl532.htm
