ISSN 1442-8660

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

Our main Article in this Newsletter is the first installment of a review of Revelation chapter four, which for the benefit of some of new subscribers is upheld both by Scripture and quotations from the Message of God's Prophet, William Branham. I pray the Lord impresses upon you the extreme lateness of the hour and the humbling grace with which He has blessed you through the Message considering millions imprisoned in the world church system have no conception their worship is in vain and their church apostate.

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.

Vatican promises to open Wartime Archives
May 25, 2010 — Vatican archives for the entire period of the Second World War, when the Church has been accused of failing to do enough to help the Jewish people, will be opened soon for scholarly research. Cardinal Walter Kasper, head of the Council for Christian Unity, also warned that cutting itself off from its Jewish roots for centuries weakened the Church so badly that it could only offer a "feeble" resistance against persecution of the Jews.

He said that Israel without the Church was in danger of becoming "too particularistic and reclusive", but that the Church without Israel was "in danger of losing its historical grounding and becoming ahistorical and Gnostic." He added: "Judaism and Christianity need each other and therefore are dependent on each other". . .

This month Cardinal Kasper, a theologian and linguist, was honoured in the US for "extraordinary" achievements in interfaith dialogue. The American Jewish committee presented him with the prestigious Isaiah Inter-religious Award at its annual meeting in Washington DC. Full story:

Comment: The Roman church has "Jewish roots," Christianity has no historic of present association with Jewry except as victim of Jewish pogroms. Indeed the word "JEW" was in no Bible in any language prior to the latter part of the eighteenth century and this new word has a contradictory meaning to the two words it has replaced.

Roman Catholicism "without Israel was "in danger of losing its historical grounding and becoming ahistorical and Gnostic" because the two must consummate the agreement prophesied in Daniel 9:27 and Revelation 17:11-18, without which the plan for Lucifer's totalitarian one world government will not come to fruition.

"Judaism and Christianity need each other and therefore are dependent on each other." Nonsense. Judaism is the antithesis of Yahweh Torah and of Christianity. Judaeo-Roman Catholic church and Edomite Judaism "need each other and therefore are dependent on each other."

Why would "democratic" Germany—of all countries—want to keep the Adolf Eichmann files, detailing the years of the so-called holocaust, sealed? After all it is "democratic" Germany that persecutes and prosecutes free holocaust research more than any other lobby-controlled country. It is "democratic" Germany that insists the fantastic story of six million "gassed" Jews is true. Non-believers face prison sentences up to life in Germany. Why then would Germany want the Eichmann files sealed? There answer is: these files, if opened, would expose the holocaust Germany declared sacrosanct, a BIG LIE.

The same tactic applies to sealed Vatican archives for the years of the so-called holocaust. Hundreds of Catholic ministers who performed pastoral care at the Auschwitz camp reported every detail to Rome.


Von Braun: Illuminati Plan for E.T. Deception
May 26, 2010 — Dr. Wernher Von Braun was privy to work on anti gravity propulsion vehicles. With access to NASA's secret programs, von Braun apparently began to see the "big picture" regarding the true goals of America's space program and how the military-industrial complex was manipulating it according to a secret, hidden agenda. . . He said a secretive transnational power, already in existence, would move to permanently take control of this planet through a hoaxed alien invasion from outer space.

According to von Braun, space based weapons, later known as the "Star Wars" program, were to be promoted as a "shield" against the Russians. Then, as a defense against 'rogue' nations. Then, as protection against asteroids and meteors. Finally they would be presented as a safeguard against an extraterrestrial threat. . .

According to von Braun, all of these rationales would be lies. These space-based weapons would be useless against nuclear suitcase bombs available even in 1974, as well as chemical, viral, bacterial and biological terror weapons. More importantly, von Braun told Rosin, we already had the technology to build anti-gravity vehicles and entire transportation systems which did not require so-called 'fossil' fuels. Instead, they used "beams" of energy, eliminating all pollution. . .

Victory in Sight
The banks have corrupted parliaments and courts in order to achieve their seemingly invincible position. Through the parliaments, banks have set in place legislation which form the blue print and provide the means to realize their goal.

However, such legislation can only be enforced through the courts where, if justice were to prevail, bad laws would be vetoed and rejected in fair trials or tribunals. That is why the banks have to have dominance over the courts. They do this by firstly controlling the judges and secondly eliminating juries—thereby removing any possibility that the judges may "do right" or that the people may exercise their will.

But there is a chink in the banks' armour—an Achilles' heel. There is a way to smash the banks by proclaiming a simple truth which the banks have swept aside in the implementation of their practice of issuing loan contracts.

The truth is in the meaning of the word, "variable," as found in the Oxford English Dictionary. "Variable" means "uncertain" and "certain" means "not variable." For contracts to be valid under the common law, there must be "certainty of terms" as an essential element. Therefore, all loan contracts in which the banks have incorporated variable interest rates are invalid. Those loans are illegal and the banks are common law criminals.

The judges know this and are concealing this serious offence. This website exposes the incompetence, corruption and treachery in the judiciary.

Comment: For almost 3 decades, since the passing of the infamous, duplicitous and unlawful Credit Consumers Act 1981, the banksters of the City of London have been stealing and killing and destroying. Since 1996, Dr. Wilson has been trying to sever the variable interest rate component from loan contracts, because certainty of terms is one of the eight essential elements for the creation of a contract. Brother John has been unlawfully imprisoned for months at a time and 'the City' has attempted to have him certified mentally unsound.


First Ethnic Statistics ever published in France reveal 54% of Babies born in Paris are Black
May 24, 2010 — In France, ethnic statistics are forbidden. But they left a flaw in their system: drepanocytosis is a genetic illness that only affects Blacks. Today, a map showing the "risk population" for drepanocytosis has been published: thus, the "Black population".

This is the first time ever that we have such ethnic statistics in France. And the results are. . . alarming. This only counts for BLACKS. . . Arabs are the other half. . . Full story:

Comment: This is the manifestation of Jesus' prophecy in Matthew 24:37. Multiculturalism is miscegenation, which is a accursed of God and a universal repetition of the original sin (Genesis 1:11; 6:1-4). Professor Kevin MacDonald of California State University, Long Beach, finds that Jews have been the foremost advocates of immigration in England, France, and Canada, and that Jewish groups were the most vocal opponents of independence for Quebec. Australian Jews led the effort to dismantle the "white Australia" policy, one reason for which was cited in an editorial in the Australian Jewish Democrat: "The strengthening of multi-cultural or diverse Australia is also our most effective insurance policy against anti-Semitism. The day Australia has a Chinese Australian Governor General I would feel more confident of my freedom to live as a Jewish Australian." Like Earl Raab writing about the United States, this Australian Jew is prepared to sacrifice the traditional culture, people, and identity of Australia to specifically Jewish interests. It would not be surprising if such an openly expressed objective did not have the opposite effect from that intended, and increase anti-Jewish sentiment.

Speaking before a special meeting of the Emergency Council of European Rabbis in Budapest on January 12, 1952, Rabbi Emanuel Rabinovich said concerning progress towards their NWO, ". . . We will openly reveal our identity with the races of Asia and Africa. I can state with assurance that the last generation of white children is now being born. Our Control Commissions will, in the interests of peace and wiping out inter-racial tensions, forbid the whites to mate with whites. The white women must cohabit with members of the dark races, the white men with black women. Thus the white race will disappear, for mixing the dark with the white means the end of the white man, and our most dangerous enemy will become only a memory . . ."


Corporal Klinger and the Barney Frank Brigade
May 26, 2010 — While some might scoff at the idea of transgendered soldiers ever serving in the Armed Forces, the transgendered are an essential component of the so-called LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered) community pushing repeal of the military’s homosexual exclusion policy. Don't forget that the Obama Administration has already claimed credit for the first openly transgendered appointee to the federal bureaucracy—a man/woman at the Commerce Department named Mitchell/Amanda Simpson. . . While it is tempting to think that the only damage that would be done would be the turning of our once-feared military into a global laughingstock, there are important national security and health implications to the homosexualization of the Armed Forces. . .

Gulf Oil Gusher Conspiracy Coverup
May 27, 2010 — Was this disaster just an accident, or were other more sinister forces at play in order to further cripple society toward a more manageable population size? Ominous midnight symbolism. BP's "live" feed caught in an obvious short loop shows further evidence of cover-up. Full story:


Everything about this Year's Bilderberg Conference!
May 28, 2010 — "Sovereign states' legal systems and political establishments entail numerous obstacles to oligarchic globalism, but the coordination of corporate practice—establishing a global cartel which embraces all economic sectors—makes it possible to circumvent these restrictions. On this point, the Bilderbergs (also called "The secret world government" and "the Quisling factory") constitute a threat to civilized society". . . participants' mouths seems to be sealed with Seven Seals . . . complemented by an almost complete media blackout, in that the mainstream media neglects to mention that Bilderberg meetings take place.

All of the Bilderberg construction is inherently undemocratic, and thus a threat to basic values of "the enlightened Western country with transparency in government, in politics, press freedom and deeply embedded democratic rights". . . the most important Bilderberg participants over the years has been democratically elected leaders, who have abused the trust of their constituents by attending Bilderberg meetings behind voters' backs without having to stand up after the meetings and inform what obligations they have incurred as a result of their participation. . .

Knights of Malta and the Society of Jesus were present when the plans for today's EU was hatched. EU citizens were lured into the community under the promise of "freedom and prosperity" (much of which has also manifested itself in practice) while the iron hand in the form of continuous centralization of power and undermining of civil liberties would remain hidden until it was become an irreversible fait accompli, and too late for EU citizens to prevent.

Henry Kissinger will be absent from this year's meeting because he fears arrest. Only Jesuit intervention of senior Irish power men prevented him finally being collected in Ireland for his extensive criminal record. . . Full story:


Throne of Mercy and Judgment

Before we study "The Revelation of the Seven Seals" let us examine Revelation chapter four and review teachings vital to comprehending the present Truth: Redemption is Over, Christ's Mediation, The Rapture and the Second Coming, and Christ's Parousia to we Gentiles, all thoroughly supported by Scripture but may be unfamiliar to new subscribers. However in this article, they will be supported by quotations from the Message of God's Prophet, William Branham. Newcomers to his Message are admonished to study the main articles of Newsletters #627 to #633, and confirm their understanding with God's unchanging Word from Genesis to Revelation in order to build faith in the present Truth based on the foundation of the apostles and prophets.

Haggai 2:6-7, "Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Yet once, in a little while, and I will shake the heavens and the earth and the sea and the dry land; and I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come. . ."

The arrival of the true Temple in which we are pillars metaphorically shook the world, and Israel under the rule of Edomite Jewry (to whom He was not sent) rejected Messiah, but we Gentiles desired Him. In Hebrews 12:26-28, Paul condenses Haggai 2:6-7 and Haggai 2:21-22, implying it was one and the same shaking, beginning at His first advent and finished at the second. The present Spiritual shaking of this end-time Message will be confirmed by a universal convulsion in nature.

John was the covenant prophet foretold in Isaiah 40:3-4 seven hundred and twelve years before he was born. From the age of nine he lived in the wilderness free from denominational influences, and when he commenced preaching at the age of thirty he did not promote his ministry with signboards or announcements in the synagogues, but clad only in sheepskin walked out of the desert into the Jordan calling for repentance and baptism. This was when "the high places were made low, and the low places were made high."

John was so humble and his Message so simple the denominations dismissed him and could not recognize the significance of his Message which shook Israel who did not perceive it, for God had blinded their eyes and sealed their ears that they should not see (Isaiah 29:10-12). But the elect did receive It. "When John saw many Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said, Who warned you Serpent's seed to flee from the approaching judgment? Bring forth fruits that befit repentance, and do not presume to say to yourselves, We have Abraham for our father: for I assure you, God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham." (His power and liberty are not limited by hereditary right. He may reject them as spurious children of Abraham; and on the other hand He is able to transform Gentiles of Adam's race to genuine children of Abraham by faith (Romans 9; Galatians 3:26-29).

"The axe is already laid to the root of the trees [for the spiritual world and mankind are made of those two trees which had their roots in Eden. The punishment of the spurious descendants of Abraham had begun and will descend upon all unfruitful trees, or trees of a bad kind (Matthew 7:15-21)]: therefore every tree that fails to bring forth good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. Whereas I baptize you with water for repentance: He who comes after me is so far superior to me, I am not fit to carry his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with Fire. The winnowing fan is in His hand, and he will thoroughly purge His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the granary, but the chaff He will burn with unquenchable Fire" (Matthew 3:7-12).

At the end of the Gentile dispensation, the Gospel preached by the fourth 'Elijah,' Brother Branham, is shaking a world seemingly oblivious to its call and immune to his Message, but since the 'parousia' Coming of the Bridegroom it is shaking the elect fruit out of Mystery Babylon to be filled with His Spirit (Matthew 25:5-6). Quoting Hebrews 12:26 he said, "Whose voice then shook the earth: but now He hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven." Once more God will shake the earth and with it shake everything loose that can be shaken. Then He will renovate it. Just last March, 1964, that Good Friday earthquake of Alaska shook the whole world though it did not unbalance it. But God was warning by a world tremor what He will soon do on a greater scale. He is going to blast and rock this sin-cursed world, my brother, my sister, and there is only one place that can stand that shock, and that is in the fold of the Lord Jesus. And I would beseech you while God's mercy is still available to you, that you give your whole life, unreservedly to Jesus Christ, Who as the faithful Shepherd will save you and care for you and present you faultless in glory with exceeding great joy" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 323).

Chapters one to three of the Book of Revelation contain God's Messages to the Church. The whole Church was complete when the last saint predestinated to Laodicea was born-again in Revelation three since His end-time Bride predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word by the revelation of the Seven Seals was fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary and does not require mediation for ignorance (I Corinthians 13:10), so His Mediation was fulfilled before the revelation of the Seals. From chapters four to nineteen the modern state of Israel is restored in Palestine (Matthew 24:32-35) where the Lord will reveal the Seven Trumpet mysteries to 144,000 elect Israelites. Chapters nineteen to twenty-two deal with Israel's revelation of Christ's 'parousia' Coming, the return of the Church as a glorified Bride adorned for her Husband, the final disposition of sin and the renewed heavens and earth.

Revelation 1:9-13, "I, John, your brother and companion in the tribulation [of the Gentile dispensation (Matthew 24:21-29)], and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was on the island of Patmos on account of the Word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day [which will commence when Israel's Seventh Trump signals the end of the Gentile dispensation with the sinking of Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300-400 mile section of earth]; and I heard behind me a loud Voice like a trumpet saying, Write what you see in a book, and send it to the seven churches—to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamos and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea. Then I turned to see whose Voice was speaking to me, and [behind me, back in the Church Ages of man's day which was past] I saw seven golden lampstands [signifying the Bride drawn out from each Age, which were all fulfilled], and in their midst stood One like the Son of man (Daniel 7:13; Revelation 14:14), dressed in a robe that reached to His feet, and girt [like a judge] about the chest with a golden girdle." He is no longer in the office of Son of God mediating for the ignorance of the PART-Word saints, for the last saint predestinated the Church Ages has been born-again (Daniel 7:1-10; John 5:27).

Brother Branham said, "He wasn't in His priesthood now [as Son of God and Mediator]. John went all the way over into the Lord's day and saw Him coming as the Judge. . . John 5:22, "For the Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment unto the Son." That right? He is the Judge, the Supreme Judge. And John shows that He wasn't in the day of His prophecy, as a prophet, neither was He plumb out into the days of His kingship, but He was in the day of the Lord as a Judge. Now, how many knows that the priest having his girdle, his string around his waistline meant he was in service? Anyone who reads the Testament, who knows the Old Testament, knows that. When a priest is girded around here, he's in service; he's a servant. But He was girded up here: a Judge" (The Patmos Vision, p. 103, 169-170. See Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Man, Son of David and Christ's Offices of Prophet, Priest and King typed in the Old Testament for an explanation of Christ's offices in the different dispensations).

Brother Branham said that in Revelation chapter four John represents the entire Church taken up because when the last saint was baptized into the Laodicean part of the Body the entire Church is redeemed, as Christ's end-time Bride was fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary. Thus, redemption is over. Throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ's end-time Bride because the Book was sealed until Christ opened and revealed it to "the Seventh Angel" after the Laodicean or Pentecostal Church Age terminated in apostasy "and knows it not" (Revelation 3:17-20; 10:4, 7). During his captivity on Patmos (AD95-96), John was caught up in the Spirit to a time in our near future and in a succession of visions saw and heard William Branham (1909-1965), the angel of Revelation 1:1 expound the Seven Seals as the Lord revealed their mystery to him in 1963 (Revelation 6:1-17; 8:1; 10:1-6; Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11).

Revelation 4:1-2, "After all Seven Church Ages were fulfilled [in Revelation 2-3], I saw that the Door of grace remained open in heaven [for Christ's end-time Bride]: and the first Voice [of Revelation 1:10, 12] which I heard speaking to me loud and clear like a trumpet said, Come up here through the open Door [following Brother Branham into the Presence or Shekinah], and I will show you what must take place hereafter. Immediately I was raptured in the Spirit: and saw a throne in heaven, and One seated on the throne." This "One" who holds the Title Deed to everything Adam had forfeited is "the Ancient of days," made flesh to play the part of KINSMAN Redeemer for Adam and his race, claims redemption's rights in Revelation 5 and has "proclaimed the day of vengeance of our God" through Brother Branham's ministry, indicting Rome and the world which has rejected grace (Isaiah 61:2; Revelation 14:9-11; 17:1; 22:6-10, etc).

Revelation 4:1-2 was fulfilled when Brother Branham was caught up from Sunset Mountain into a constellation of the theophanies of the Church Age messengers and the four living creatures on about March 9, 1963 as foreseen in visions recounted to his church the previous December (see Newsletters #632 and #633). We must follow him into the Presence by the mysteries of the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals and the unwritten spoken Word of Revelation 8:1 (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 327:1).

The Tabernacle and its services patterned after Moses' heavenly visions were ordained to illustrate God's plan of redemption and the way back into His Presence in the form of a play acted out in simplicity the meek would receive by revelation, but whose literal interpretation would stumble the exalted learning of the wise and prudent. So when reading Scriptures such as Daniel 7:13; Revelation 1:4; 4:8, 11; 5:5-9 and 13, we should not imagine there are two gods, for Jesus Christ is the beginning of the One Person of God creating Himself a part of creation. Thus Leviticus 16 describes the annual day of atonement and how God cleansed the Temple sanctuary of the accumulated sins of the priesthood and of the nation. However, the blood of bulls and goats could not remit but merely covered the sins of the year past pending Messiah's propitiation for the sins of the world. There were two goats: one was made sin and slain, while the other was presented alive before the Lord and led into the wilderness to carry their sins away. The two goats represented the one sacrifice of Jesus Christ who bore our sins upon Himself to Calvary and carried them far away to a place of no more remembrance. Literalist Seventh Day Adventists believe one goat is Satan.

The intellectual Israelite hierarchy and their Edomite impersonators took the literal meaning of the play, crucified Messiah, and after 2,000 years they are determined to build another temple despite Isaiah 66:1-2, and mature adults spend their days examining dumb heifers in search of one hair that is not red, imagining this is the will of God! "Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad." The theological presumptions of intellectual nicolaitanes pontificating over psuedo-Christian Establishment and renegade churches have driven men from the simplicity of Gospel faith to reunion with Rome and union with Judaism, as if the insanely literal theories of Unitarianism, trinities, transubstantiation, and false baptisms in three Titles devoid of revelation were not sufficiently carnal in themselves.

Now Jesus Christ is "Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, the Lord God who is, and who was and who is coming, the All-mighty" (Revelation 1:8; 17; 2:8). It is He who is seated "with His Father in His throne" (Revelation 3:21). Jesus Christ is the One Person of God who declared, "All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth" (Matthew 28:18; John 13:3; I Corinthians 15:20-28). He is the only "One" seated on the throne (Revelation 4:2).

Speaking of the Church Ages Jesus said, "The Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment unto the Son: that all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He who does not honour the Son does not honour the Father who sent Him. I assure you absolutely, He who hears My Word, and believes on Him who sent Me, has eternal Life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto Life. I assure you absolutely, The hour is coming, and now is, when those who are dead in sin and trespasses shall hear the Voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live [through new birth during the Church Ages]. For as the Father has eternal Life in Himself; He has granted the Son to have eternal Life in Himself; and given Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of man [in this our day]" (John 5:22-27). So much for Jehovah Witness speculation (II Corinthians 3:6).

Brother Branham said, "Now, God, when He is enthroned, He is then Judge. Is that right? When does the judges judge? When he comes to his judgment seat, a throne" (Revelation Four, Part II, p. 623:214). The scene in Revelation chapter four is set about ten days before the Seals were revealed to the Church in Jeffersonville, the Seven Church Ages are over and Christ is no longer in the office of Son of God and Mediator, but Son of Man enthroned as the Supreme Judge. "He who sat upon the throne was to look upon as jasper and sardius stone [Reuben and Benjamin, the first and the last, Alpha and Omega], and a rainbow that looked like an emerald encircled the throne" (Revelation 4:3; 15:3). An emerald is green, the colour of life. Jesus is the All-mighty, and the covenant sign of this rainbow is not the vertical half bow we see on half of the Earth lit by the natural Sun; the horizontal rainbow of the full circle of seven colors representing all Seven Ages is the glory of the Lord covering the throne, the elders and the four living creatures which represent Spiritual Israel, the Church (as once they represented natural Israel), because Christ is in His Church. The glory of God is Jesus Christ, and the glory of Jesus Christ is His Church.

Brother Branham said, "When John saw Him here [in Revelation four] . . . the day of redeeming was over. It was all over, so he seen Him back in His original condition, an amber colour" (ibid, p. 620:196). "And all this from hereafter . . . will take place on earth after the rapture of the church. See, after the rapture. This is going back now to pick up Israel. After . . . the Ages of the Church . . . The Church never appears again [in the Bible] until Revelation the nineteenth chapter when she returns with Her Bridegroom. Praise God for the wedding" (Revelation Chapter Four Part I, p. 560:58-63).

Revelation 19:7, "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb has come [to pass], and His wife has made herself ready [for the Wedding Supper]." The marriage is our new birth or Spiritual redemption which takes place on earth.

"We go to the wedding supper, not to the marriage. "Fill your flesh. . . self, of all the flesh of mighty men," 'cause "the marriage of the Lamb has come." But the rapture is going to the Wedding Supper. When the Word here unites with the person, and they two become one, and then what does it do then? It manifests the Son of man again, not the church theologians, the Son of man. The Word and the Church becomes one. Whatever the Son of man done, He was the Word, the Church does the same thing" (William Branham, Proving His Word, p. 44:236).

The rapture is the threefold PROCESS Paul described in I Thessalonians 4:14-18. It commenced in 1963 with the "shout" of Brother Branham's Message calling those who are virgins to Christ the Logos or Word of God, to come out from Roman Babylon and her harlot (once) Protestant daughter churches to meet the heavenly Bridegroom in His 'parousia' Coming and be filled with the Spirit (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4). "The Voice" is Christ, the Archangel over the seven earthly angels, whispering His secrets in the heart of His beloved to place the Message from Genesis to Revelation and bring her to maturity "in the unity of the faith" (Ephesians 4:13). "The Trump" will call the resurrection of the Church Age saints and "the manifestation of the living Sons of God" (Romans 8:19).

The PROCESS called the "rapture" commenced in 1963 after the close of Laodicea when Christ opened the Seven Seals. The opening of the Seven Seals was signified to His Prophet in a vision three months beforehand, in fulfillment of which he was caught up into the Shekinah formed by the theophanies of the seven angels at the opening of the First Seal in March, 1963 while on a hunting trip with several brethren as explained in Newsletter #632 (Is This the Sign of the End, Sir? p. 43:7; Seals, p. 559:5-6; Is Your Life Worthy of the Gospel, p. 4:13; Unveiling of God, p. 50:336; Choosing a Bride, p. 29:3; What is the Attraction on the Mountain, p. 22:143-148; Invisible Union of the Bride of Christ, p. 42:3). Christ came "as a thief in the night" and forty-seven years later the world knows nothing about it. This enables us to understand what the Prophet meant when he said, "Oh, and notice, John, being taken up immediately after the Church Age, was a type of the raptured Church. Immediately after the Church Age is over, this Laodicean Church Age, then comes the rapture. The Church goes up like John did into the Presence of God. Oh, that just winds my soul around. Caught up, at the rapture of the Church. And it said. . . This place, [chapter four of] the Book of Revelations was written (See?), at the end of the Church Age". . . When the Church Ages ceased, He left the earth and moved up into the heaven and called His Redeemed up with Him" (ibid p. 572:125; Part II, p. 593:42).

The second Coming of Christ is not the physical (Gk. 'erchomai') return of the glorified Jesus in the office of Son of David to step out on the atomic ashes of the wicked for the Millennium, but the unseen 'parousia' Coming of Christ the Logos or fullness of the anointed Word through the mouth of His Prophet by the revelation of the Seven Seals to bring His end-time Bride into perfect oneness under preeminence according to His prayer in John 17:21-26. We know Him by faith, not by sight. After our translation He will reveal Himself to Israel in the same manner as Son of man.

Christ came "as a thief in the night" between the Sixth and Seventh Vials, post-World War II when sovereignty was declared for Israel and former imperial colonies. "Demonic spirits" from Imperial and Papal Rome and her pope or false prophet were gathering the world's leaders to Armageddon (Matthew 24:32-35; Luke 21:29-33; Revelation 16:13-16). The PART-Word Saints are finished and sealed away in the uncapped pyramid representing the Seven Church Ages. Their organizations have been apostate since 1963 and "knoweth it not." They will continue preaching their false salvation messages into the tribulation. Christ has come, the rapture commenced forty-seven years ago; the world church system knows nothing about it, and will be just as ignorant when the Gentile dispensation has ended and Christ has taken His Bride Home for the Wedding Supper.

Brother Branham said, "What a far cry from reality is this church age in which we live. And one day soon these men that even now purport to speak for the church will be rising up in the ecumenical move to place a living antichrist as head of their organization which deposes the Lord and we will find Him (Christ) outside the church saying, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me (Revelation 3:20). . ." (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 296:2).

"Yes, there He stands, the Lord of Glory. Once as the Father, He was surrounded by the angels, the archangels, the cherubims, and seraphims and the whole host of heaven, crying, "Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God of Hosts." Such was His holiness that no man could approach unto Him. But now we see Him in the Church, sharing His own holiness with us, until in Him we have become the very righteousness of God (Ibid, 297:2).

The Voice John — you — heard in Revelation 4:1 is the Voice of Revelation 10:4, and Ezekiel 1:27-28. Brother Branham said, "After the Church Ages was over, and everything was come ready, made ready the setting of the fourth chapter here, the Church Ages was done. He had done left the earth. You see? Remember, the Voice that spoke to him, behind him, in the seven golden candlesticks [Revelation 1:10, 12), the work was finished. And now that same Voice was speaking up in heaven. What was it? He had done redeemed His people. His earthly work was finished, and He was in glory, calling to John, "Come up hither." Amen. . ."

Through the Seven Church Ages Christ was in the midst of the Lampstands in the South. When the Church goes up, Satan will come down and both he and the Lord will be dealing with Israel represented as the table of shewbread in the North. Isaiah 14:12-13, "How you have fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how you are cut down to the ground, who did weaken the nations! For you have said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the North".

"Never forget this, that God promised great shakings and great and mighty works. Now, write this on your notes that you're writing (See, see?), that what man calls mighty and great, God calls foolish. And what man calls foolish, God calls great. Don't forget that (See?); don't forget it. That'll help you along in the years to come, because we're looking for something greater all the time. And we're receiving greater all the time, but the peoples of the world don't know it. Neither did they know it in the days of Noah; neither did they know it in the days of John, in the days of Jesus, in the days of the apostles, in the days of Irenaeus, any of those days; they never knew it. . . Remember, the world is getting the hardest shake its ever had, right now, the church world" (Revelation Chapter Four, Part II, p. 599:76, 81).

This "shaking" is among the elect, it is the 'third pull' of Brother Branham's ministry that flies over the heads of the non-elect. You were caught up into the Spirit and began to see things. After you recognized the very Word of God was Eagle Food, you left the other thing. You've been formed into the living image of the living God. You heard from your theophany. "If this earthly body be dissolved, we have one waiting."

Brother Branham said, "I want you to notice that this was not a throne of grace no more. There the blood had been gone, and the sacrifice was back again, and they had been accepted, and the blood was off the mercy seat. And it was now a judgment seat, because thunders and lightning issued off of it. Is that right?"

"Remember, it was like Mount Sinai. When Moses went on Mount Sinai, what happened? Thunder, lightning. And even if a cow, or a calf, or a sheep, or anyone even touched the mountain, it must die. The Bible said, "So great was the quake that even Moses feared it. . . Said, "Take off your shoes here; you're on holy ground." Joshua the great warrior, was to take the children over and divide their inheritance, could only come halfway up the mountain."

(Like the PART-Word Church, which was completed and sealed into its divisions of the Body, Joshua could not cross over to the Capstone (as illustrated in our diagram). Only the Messenger to the new Age could pass from the revelation for his day into the Light for the new dispensation He was to introduce. And we can only enter the Capstone through the fullness of the Word, who is Christ, the Son of man introduced by the Message the Prophet received when he was caught up into the breach between the Church Ages and the Capstone revelation of the Seals).

"Here stood Moses up there with the colors of God, flashes from lightnings and emeralds around him, watching them commandments be written. Standing in the Presence of God, that Voice speaking back out, "Moses, where are you? Take off your shoes; you're on holy ground." A judgment seat, it was now, nothing could stand there but the redeemed. Sinner could not approach it at all (it's finished), the judgment seat. All right" (Revelation Chapter Four, Part II, p. 622:208-211).

Revelation 4:5-7, "Out from the throne issue lightnings and thunderings and voices: and before the throne burn seven lamps of Fire, which are the seven Spirits of God. Also before the throne there was a sea of glass, like crystal: and around the throne, on each side were four living beings full of eyes before and behind. The first living being was like a lion; the second like an ox, and the third had the face of a man, and the fourth, like a flying eagle".

The "seven lamps of Fire" represent the Spirit of the Lord sent forth in different measures to anoint the angels and their Messages which baptized the saints into their part of the Body in seven consecutive Church Ages, their lives reflecting the Token of the virtue predominant in their Age (as illustrated on the diagram). All seven Church Ages being fulfilled they are back before the throne, which, in the absence of blood, is no longer a Mercy Seat, but a Judgment Seat upon which Christ sits as Judge.

Do you see the hopeless situation of the non-elect denominational worshippers under the spirit of Laodicea? They declare, "I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing," but have no idea that spiritually, they are "wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked of the Blood of Christ".

The "sea of glass" was the pattern for the brazen laver in which the sacrifice was washed before being offered. In Revelation 15:2 it is "mingled with Fire" as the 144,000 elect Israelites are being purged through the Great Tribulation and baptized into Christ, but in Revelation four it is clear, signifying the Church Age saints have been redeemed.

The heavenly temple was the pattern after which Moses built the Tabernacle of witness in the wilderness, Solomon built the Temple in Jerusalem, and Christ is building His Church as Paul explained in Hebrews 9:23. But when Jesus died, the temple veil rent, and not only a high priest, but whosoever will can have that same anointing of the Shekinah Glory, walk a life holy unto the Lord, and approach the very Presence of God, through the Blood of Jesus Christ to intercede for others. The seven Spirits of God reflected the Light of God for the Age from the Throne of God through the seven angels to the seven golden lampstands or saints whose testimony is reflected into the brass laver to the world.

God first dwelt alone in the heavenly tabernacle, His Throne was a Judgment Seat because "Judgment must begin at the house of God" (I Peter 4:17). Moses represented the pattern in the earthly tabernacle where God dwelt alone between the cherubim above the Judgment Seat in the Holy of Holies, where all Israel gathered to find mercy under the shed blood. The Shekinah departed that Mercy Seat before Nebuchadnezzar conquered Judah and settled on the true Tabernacle six hundred years later. "The Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment unto the Son" (John 5:22). God's Judgment Seat said, "Whoever is not with Me is against Me; and whoever is not gathering with Me scatters. I tell you therefore: every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men: but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. And whoever says a word against the Son of man will be forgiven; [another Mercy Seat]; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit [when He comes to dwell in the heart of His Bride] will not be forgiven, either in this age, or in the age to come. [Judgment Seat]. Either make the tree and its fruit to be good; or hold both the tree and its fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by its fruit" (Matthew 12:30-33).

God's patience is constantly strained, calling sinners to come to be reconciled to Him, and judgment is becoming more and more imminent as the Light that once shone from the heavens, shone on earth through the Shekinah, then the Shekinah was made flesh and dwelt among men, redeemed us by His Blood and came into the Church by the baptism with the Holy Ghost and "whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit [in the heart of His Bride], will not be forgiven".

As we learn from Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed, His threefold purpose from eternity was to reveal Himself to the people, which He could not do as the unseen Jehovah God who covered all space, time and eternity. First He expressed the fullness of Himself in Christ in order to identify Himself with the human condition. Secondly, through this revelation He sought to bring "the fullness of the godhead bodily" into a people He might live in and have the preeminence to lead His Body of believers, His Bride, and express Himself through them. And thirdly, to restore the Kingdom to its proper estate where He walked with His people in the cool of the evening before it fell in unbelief.

God's threefold purpose for men made in His image was revealed from the heavenly Temple and replicated in the earthly Tabernacle built by Moses, both were shadows and types of the perfect man. As shown on the above diagram, the Temple was approached by the outer court of the congregation gathered under the shed blood on the brazen altar of sacrifice. Passing through the sea of glass where the ashes of the red heifer were made a waters of separation, the believer is "sanctified, being cleansed with the washing of water by the Word [or revelation], that Christ might present to Himself a glorious church, without spot or wrinkle or any other blemish; being holy and faultless" (Ephesians 5:26-27). And finally, through the riven veil of Christ's flesh without condemnation into the very Presence of God in the Holy of Holies (Romans 8; Hebrews 9).

The Tabernacle and Temple were mere shadows and types to instruct Israel of God's plan to reflect Himself in men made in His image as eternal spirits or redeemed souls and after the likeness of His nature and character. The Lord Jesus takes His abode in the temple of our body by three stages of grace through faith. God is love and He chose man's heart for His Throne room. He revealed His will but placed us on free moral agency to choose to reciprocate His love, or to demur. Satan chose man's head for his totalitarian control tower to beguile him into helpless submission by the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life. God enters through our outer court, invited by a clear understanding of His revealed Word and redemptive work in Christ, not catechism, creed and church traditions. By this revelation coupled with repentance not only are we forgiven, we are justified by grace through faith as if we never made those mistakes. Perhaps the most simple example of saving faith is when we recognize the true oneness of the godhead through water baptism in that "The Name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost" is LORD JESUS CHRIST, and in obedience to Matthew 28:19 we "and are baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, with the promise we will receive the gift of the Holy Ghost [or new birth]. For the promise is to as many as the Lord our God shall call" (Acts 2:38-39). Of course, if you have not been called by God you will ignore His command.

Having thus appealed to God for a clear conscience, He will begin to reveal His requirements for a holy walk, whereby we sanctify the spirit of our mind by bringing the five senses of our body (see, taste, feel, smell and touch) and the five senses of our mortal spirit (conscience, memory, imagination, reasoning and affection) subject to His Word, receiving correction as He reveals our errors in ignorance of the requirements of His unchanging Word. This is called sanctification. The Lord has now entered the antitype of the sanctuary.

Next we must tear down the veil of self-will between the holy place, before God can convert our soul and take His abode and the Holy of Holies of our heart. When we come into oneness with His Word for our day, and see that part of the Word living through us, this is our assurance that we have become a written epistle of the present Truth known and read by all men. nl634.htm

God Hiding Himself in Simplicity - Part II

Bible Believers' Newsletter #633
"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.

With the world productive economy stagnating—bankrupted as planned by the "Free Trade" SCAM, the target of taxation is moving from the profits of a productive economy with full employment, to consumption by the unemployed mass living in failed socialist economies. As F. D. Roosevelt said, "If something happens in politics, you can bet it was planned that way." This was demonstrated on April 1, 1973 by the introduction of 10%, now 17.5%, Value Added Tax (VAT) in the UK as a pre-condition to joining the EEC, now the EU, and in Australia on July 1, 2000 by a 10% Goods and Services Tax (GST) as the Word Bank's precondition to John Howard's election as Prime Minister. The banksters of the 'City of London' who control governments are decades, in fact centuries ahead of outcomes of the pre-planned history they impose on the world.

Consumption taxes ensure that as the world descends into the depression Brother Branham prophesied sixty years ago (Jezebel Religion, p. 22:100), governments will continue to farm tax to pay the usurers. The climate change/CO2 HOAX and is an integral part of this conspiracies. In Australia our taxpayer- funded alien-controlled public broadcasting system is constantly pumping out propaganda on this SCAM of 'the City of London'.

The Lord sent His Prophet with warning and a way to escape the tribulation coming upon Earthlings who do not have the Seal of God in their foreheads before the world order falls apart. Jesus is the way, the truth and eternal Life. We must be sealed in Him. Not by learning, good works or manmade traditions, but by grace through a clear revelation of the Word for this last hour, for God is hiding Himself in simplicity, and this is the subject of our main article.

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


Presentation to Shed Light on Bilderbergs at European Parliament
May 18, 2010 — On June 1, 2010 . . . Daniel Estulin, author of "The True Story of the Bilderberg Group" and "Shadow Masters", has been invited to speak at the European Parliament by Mario Borghezio, the most senior Member of European Parliament from Italy. The European Parliament is one of the most powerful legislatures in the world. Estulin will be part of a presentation titled "Bilderberg Group—Towards Creation of One World Company Ltd.," given by the author, as well as Borghezio, Nigel Farage (Member of European Parliament for South East England) and Gerard Batten (Member of European Parliament for London).

Foreign-Led Commission now Governs Haiti
May 16, 2010 — The Parliament . . . formally ceded its powers over finances and reconstruction, during the state of emergency, to a foreign-led Interim Commission for the Reconstruction of Haiti (CIRH). The CIRH's mandate is to direct the post-earthquake reconstruction of Haiti through the $9.9 billion in pledges of international aid, including approving policies, projects, and budgeting. The World Bank will manage the money. . . the international community, which didn't respond to the crisis by promoting the interests of the Haitian people. Instead, they took advantage of the situation to further entrench their own power.

"The CIRH has no accountability to anyone, especially to the parliament which voted it in. The only body to whom it is accountable is the World Bank, which holds and controls all the aid. This will give it the chance to have even more of a diktat than it has in the past thirty years. . . There are no internal controls, and Parliament doesn't have to receive reports, nor does it have any oversight. The CIRH is only for the rich. . ." Full story:

US faces same Problems as Greece, says Bank of England
May 13, 2010 — Mervyn King, Governor of the Bank of England, fears that America shares many of the same fiscal problems currently haunting Europe. He also believes that European Union must become a federalised fiscal union (in other words with central power to tax and spend) if it is to survive. . . Barack Obama and the European leaders will have been far less pleased with his frank comments on their predicament. . .

Every country around the world is in a similar position, even the United States; the world's largest economy has a very large fiscal deficit. . . I do not want to comment on a particular measure by a particular country, but I do want to suggest that within the Euro Area it's become very clear that there is a need for a fiscal union to make the Monetary Union work. But if that is to happen there needs to be also a mechanism to enable other countries that have lost competitiveness to regain competitiveness. . . Full story:

Prognosis 2012: Towards a New World Social Order
May 18, 2010 — The US is spending astronomical sums developing a first-strike capability, with space-based weapons systems, control-of-theater capability, forward-based 'tactical' nukes, etc. The new anti-missile systems are an important part of a first-strike strategy, reducing the ability of Russia or China to retaliate. These systems are more than just provocative. They are the modern equivalent of marching your armies up to your adversary's border.

If there is a nuclear exchange between the major powers, historians will cite all of these things I've mentioned as 'obvious signs' that war was coming. Parallels would be drawn to the pre-World War I scenario, when Germany was eclipsing Britain economically, as China is eclipsing the US now. In both cases a 'desperate attempt to maintain hegemony' would be seen as the cause of the war. . .

One way or another, the elite bankers, the masters of the universe, intend to preside over a micromanaged global system. The collapse project is now well underway, and the 'surround your enemy' project seems to be more or less completed. From a strategic perspective, there will be some trigger point, some stage in the economic collapse scenario, when geopolitical confrontation is judged to be most advantageous. . . to clear the way for the carbon-credit economy, it will be necessary for Western currencies to collapse, to become worthless, as nations become increasingly insolvent, and the global financial system continues to be systematically dismantled. The carbon currency will be introduced as an enlightened, progressive 'solution' to the crisis, a currency linked to something real, and to sustainability. The old monetary system will be demonized, and again the mythology will contain much that is true. . . Culturally, the post-capitalist era will be a bit like the medieval era, with aristocrats and lords on top, and the rest peasants and serfs. . . there is no sequestering of wealth, or building of economic empires, outside the structures of the designated bureaucracies. Entitlements are about access to resources and facilities, to be used or not used, but not to be saved and used as capital. The flow of entitlements comes downward, micromanaged from the top. It's a dole economy, at all levels, for people and governments alike—the global regimentation of consumption. As regards regimentation, the post-capitalist culture will also be a bit like the Soviet system. Here's your entitlement card, here's your job assignment, and here's where you'll be living.

For such a profound transformation to be possible, it is easy to see that a very great shock is required, on the scale of collapse and social chaos, and possibly on the scale of a nuclear exchange. There needs to be an implicit mandate to 'do whatever is necessary to get society running again'. The shock needs to leave people in a condition of total helplessness comparable to the survivors in the bombed-out rubble of Germany and Japan after World War II. Nothing less will do.

Comment: Following the earthquake is it any wonder Russia will attack and invade mainland USA? After victory they will show compassion and withdraw at the behest of the (then) Devil-incarnate pope and his federation of world religions and in the interest of world peace. At the next provocation Judaeo-Communist Russia will annihilate the Judaeo-Communist USA. After all, Russia is also a pawn of the 'City of London'.


"Carbon Capture & Burial—all Carbon Cemeteries are already Full"
May 10, 2010 — Perhaps the biggest waste of all is the futile quest to capture carbon dioxide from power stations, separate it, compress it, pump it long distances and force it down specially drilled bore holes, hoping it will never escape.

"The effect of CO2 on global temperature, if it exists, is so small that no one has been able to demonstrate or measure it. The touted effect exists solely in computer models whose forecasts to date have all failed. Therefore there is ZERO proven benefit for mankind in trying to capture harmless CO2 in order to bury it in carbon cemeteries. Worse, it is removing valuable plant food from the biosphere—a step towards global food suicide. Moreover, for every tonne of carbon buried, we bury 2.7 tonnes of the gas of life—oxygen.

"The quantities of gas to be handled just from power stations are enormous. For every tonne of coal burnt, about 11 tonnes of gases are exhausted—7.5 tonnes of nitrogen, 2.5 tonnes of CO2 and one tonne of water vapour. These are all harmless and valuable natural recycled atmospheric gases. Life on earth would be impossible without them.

"Normally these harmless gases are vented to the atmosphere after filters take out nasties like soot and noxious fumes. To capture the CO2 would require additional energy to collect the 11 tonnes of gases and separate the 2.5 tonnes of CO2 for every tonne of coal burnt. Then even more energy would be required to compress this 2.5 tonnes of CO2 and pump it to the burial site.

"All of this is possible, but the capital and operating costs will be horrendous. It is estimated that 30% - 40% of the power currently generated will be used just on carbon capture, compression and pumping. More energy still is required to produce and erect the steel for all those pumps and pipes and to drill the disposal wells. All this will chew up more coal resources and produce yet more carbon dioxide, for no benefit.

"But the real problem starts at the burial site.

"There is no vacuum occurring naturally anywhere on earth—every bit of space is occupied by solids, liquids or gases. Thus to dispose of CO2 underground requires it to be pumped AGAINST the pressure of whatever is in the pore space of the rock formation now—either natural gases or liquids. These pressures can be substantial, especially after more gas is pumped in.

"The natural gases in rock formations are commonly air, CO2, methane or rotten egg gas. The liquids are commonly fresh or salty water or, very rarely, liquid hydrocarbons.

To find a place where you could drive out oil or natural gas in order to make space to bury CO2 would be like winning the Lottery—a profitable but very unlikely event. Pumping air out is costly, pumping CO2 out to make room for CO2 is pointless and releasing large quantities of salty water or rotten egg gas would create a real surface problem, unlike the imaginary threat from CO2.

"In normal times, pumping fresh water out would be seen as a boon for most locals, but these days it is probably prohibited. Naturally, some carbon dioxide will dissolve in groundwater and pressurise it, so that the next water driller in the area could get a real bonus—bubbling Perrier Water on tap, worth more than oil.

"Regulating carbon dioxide is best left to the oceans—they have been doing it for millions of years. It's time for tax payers and shareholders to protest this gigantic waste of money, energy and coal resources on fantasies like carbon capture and burial. "Because, no matter where we look for space for carbon dioxide burial, we will find signs saying:

"All carbon cemeteries are already full". Full story:

World Summit of Religious Leaders
Moscow, July 3-5, 2006 — Dear internet brothers and sisters!

Welcome to our website. Here we will post various articles gathered from a variety of independent sources of information. They relate to Orthodoxy, the place of faith in the modern world, as well as carrying out various processes, which are not always apparent at first glance, but have an impact on our faith and life.

Comment: What fools these mortals be. For those with eyes to see, this is the reunion of the ten toes of iron and clay in Lucifer's totalitarian one world government—Eastern and Western Rome and the so-called Jews, prior to their destruction by Christ and the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel in the Millennium (Acts 1:6).


Interfaith Bible Study focuses on God's Compassion
May 16, 2010 — Muslims, Christians and people of other faiths should witness together to God's compassion in a world where too many suffer destitution and injustice, a Muslim scholar and a Christian leader agreed during an interfaith Bible study held at a 12-16 May German church convention (Kirchentag) in Munich.

Ultimately, it is "no advantage for Jews to be Jews, Christians to be Christians, and Muslims to be Muslims," said Muslim scholar Dr Ataullah Siddiqui. What really matters, Siddiqui argued, is the "human concern" for "the poor and the needy".

For the Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit, general secretary of the World Council of Churches, "God is compassionate" and therefore asks people "to be compassionate". All human beings have a common calling "to live according to God's will in this land". . . Full story:

Comment: Jesus said, "The poor are with you always, and whenever you wish you may do them good: but Me you have not always" because the Gentile dispensation is about to terminate (Mark 14:7). God's will is His unchanging Word.


Bishops to the Left of Senate Democrats on Immigration
May 6, 2010 — As the US Catholic hierarchy rallies to the cause of illegal immigrants from Mexico and Central America, Catholic parishioners in Cleveland, Ohio, are protesting a plan by Bishop Richard Lennon to "downsize the diocese" and close 50 churches. The parishioners are calling themselves "Endangered Catholics" and have launched a website to save the ethnic European and black Catholic churches targeted for closure.

The closures are being blamed on financial shortfalls and "changing demographics," meaning that Hispanics have become more important to the church and whites have become less important.

Indeed, Dan Gilgoff of US News & World Report has cited evidence that four times as many Catholics are leaving the faith as are joining it but that a surge in Hispanic immigration "has offset the steady decline of white Catholics." The latest figures show that 40 percent of US Catholics are Hispanic. The same evidence shows that many immigrant workers in the US are "undocumented" and 74 percent of them are Catholic. It is this demographic, rather than moral or religious concern, that is driving official Catholic concern for immigrants, legal and illegal. In fact, seventy percent of the country's largest Catholic diocese in Los Angeles, run by Cardinal Mahony, are Hispanic.

Rocco Palmo, who covers the politics of the Roman Catholic Church, recently told National Public Radio that Hispanics constitute half of other major archdioceses like New York, Chicago, and Atlanta. "It's been a staggering shift in the life of the American church," he said. This shift explains Catholic support for legalizing illegal immigrants.

In a bow to reality, Lisa Miller points out in Newsweek magazine that the bishops "have a practical stake in fighting the [Arizona] law and supporting federal immigration reform." She writes, "The number of Hispanics in America has grown from about 6 million in 1960 to about 50 million today. Nearly 70 percent of Hispanics in America are Catholic. With whites abandoning Catholicism in droves, a growing, vital American church depends on Hispanic families."

Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist, in his book, "Minutemen: The Battle to Secure America's Borders", declared, "Churches pander to illegal aliens, seeking financial windfalls when more church members come across the borders. This is especially true of the Catholic Church, because so many of the Mexicans coming here are Catholic. . ."

A Frightening Analysis
We all know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Last week there was an immigration-overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of American's finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor named Victor Davis Hansen talked about his latest book, "Mexifornia," explaining how immigration—both—legal and illegal—was—destroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.

Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America. The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, "If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let's destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that 'An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide'."

"Here is how they do it," Lamm said: First to destroy America, "Turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country. History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar Seymour Lipset put it this way: 'The histories of bilingual and bi-cultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy. Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, and Corsicans."

Lamm went on: Second, to destroy America, "Invent 'multiculturalism' and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. I would make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal. That there are no cultural differences. I would make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.

Third, "We could make the United States a 'Hispanic Quebec' without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: 'The apparent success of our own multiethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved! Not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentrically and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.'"

Lamm said, "I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural subgroups living in America reinforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities."

"Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school."

"My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of 'Victimology.' I would get all minorities to think their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population."

"My sixth plan for America's downfall would include dual citizenship and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other—that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity! Unity is what it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshiped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic Games.

A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell.

"E. Pluribus Unum"—From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the 'pluribus' instead of the 'Unum,' we can balkanize America as surely as Kosovo."

"Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits—make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of 'diversity.' I would find a word similar to 'heretic' in the—16th century—that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like 'racist' or 'xenophobes' halt discussion and debate."

"Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established multiculturism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of 'Victimology,' I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them."

In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said, "Lastly, I would censor Victor Davis Hanson's book, Mexifornia. His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don't read that book."

There was no applause.

A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Every discussion is being suppressed. Over—100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate 'diversity.' American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America—take note of California and other states—to-date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell's book "1984." In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: "War is peace," "Freedom is slavery," and "Ignorance is strength".

Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy are deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don't get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially The American Dream. That was in mid-June, 2005.

"The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum" (Noam Chomsky, American linguist and US media and foreign policy critic).


God Hiding Himself in Simplicity – Part II

Brother Branham's "new commission" was the 'third pull' of his ministry, the "Shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16, calling the wise and foolish virgin out from Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches to maturity "in the unity of the faith" (Matthew 25:6; Ephesians 4:13; Revelation 18:4). It was the "former [or teaching] rain" restoring Christ's end-time Bride to "the foundation of the apostles and prophets—Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone. The whole building joined closely together in Him is growing into a temple that is holy in the Lord, in whom also you are built for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit" (Ephesians 2:20-21; Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7).

It is the Divinely revealed mysteries of the "Seven Thunders" contained in the Seven Seals that literally turn our hearts back to the faith of our apostolic fathers.

Like the white limestone casing stones of the Great Pyramid cut to optical precision so that the joints are consistently one fiftieth of an inch—about the thickness of five pages of your Bible, the individual members of Christ's Body are so close knit, no manmade tradition, baptism in three Titles, Apostle's Creed, Trinity, catechism or Hail Mary, separates one precious stone from another (Ephesians 4:16; John 17:21). Typing the Church with Enoch's pyramid, Brother Branham said, "It's got to be honed. In that pyramid, you can take a razor blade, and you can't run between them rocks where the mortar was; it's so fitly put together" (Spoken Word Original Seed, p. 107:5).

As Israel was Moses' house, we are Christ's house built of God's spoken Word received by grace through faith and rest. This stumbled Israel who sought to attain righteousness by the works of the Law and not by faith (Hebrews 3-4; Romans 9:31-33). The Gentiles likewise denominated after human reasoning away from the Reformers and built outside the design parameters projected down from Christ our invisible Capstone to the cornerstones of the Gospels and apostolic foundation of the pyramid below. So God sent His Prophet to restore the revelation Word upon Word, line upon line, from Genesis to Revelation—to show how the saints of one dispensation blend seamlessly into the next, until the whole Body conforms to the Headstone.

While he waited upon the Lord in Tucson for the fulfillment of the visions and dreams recounted in "Is This the Sign of the End, Sir?", his tabernacle in Jeffersonville was restored on a strong natural foundation. Instead of a mud and sawdust floor, "it's undergirded with steel and setting on the ground built up strong." When he returned to deliver the revelation of the Seven Seals as they were revealed to him, his initial address was titled "God in Simplicity," a retrospect in which he rehearsed simple instructions on attitude, conduct and order in service and the duties and responsibilities of officeholders. Having been dedicated thirty years beforehand, Branham Tabernacle had reached the mature age upon which Christ and ministers under the Law commenced public service. Having attained to justification, sanctification and the baptism with the Holy Ghost it was time for the Body of Christ to go on to perfection in the Capstone, and the Prophet rededicated his Church: the congregation, not the building, for the beauty of the Church is the character of its people.

I Chronicles 17:1-8, "After David had been living in his palace for some time, he said to Nathan the prophet, Look, I am living in a cedar-paneled palace while the ark of the Lord's covenant is under a tent."

"Nathan replied to David, Do all that is in your heart; for God is with you. But that night the Word of God came to Nathan: Go, tell My servant David, Thus saith the Lord, You shall not build Me a house to dwell in. From the day that I brought up Israel to this day I have not dwelt in a house; but I have gone from tent to tent, and from one tabernacle to another. Wherever I have journeyed with all Israel, did I ever mention one word to any of the judges of Israel, whom I commanded to shepherd My people, saying, Why have you not built Me a cedar-lined Temple?

Tell My servant David, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, I took you from the pasture, from following the sheep, to be ruler over My people Israel: I have been with you in all of your undertakings, and have cut off all your enemies from before you, and I will make your name of equal reputation to that of the greatest men on earth".

Brother Branham said, "David saw the same thing that we saw"—speaking of his "tent vision"—the repository of the covenant under a tent of skins. Despite his humble birth and upbringing, William Branham foreran Christ's second Coming as John the Baptist foreran His first Coming and the Lord made him a ruler over Spiritual Israel, ranking his name among the greatest men on earth: Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, John the Baptist, Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Martin Luther, and John Wesley.

Since the day of Pentecost, Christ has dwelt in tents of the mortal flesh of His elect by one baptism with the Holy Spirit to the next baptism with the Holy Spirit, from tent to tent and Church Age to Church Age. As there had been no Word prophet since Paul to "finish the mystery of God" He did not question any of the Messengers of PART-Word, "Why have you not raised up the flesh of My Bride to glorification (Genesis 9:27; Hebrews 9:21-24; see Spreading God's Tent)?

This Capstone of the Seven Thunders is formed in the "little room" of Brother Branham's tent vision. The Lord said, "I'll meet you in there; that'll be the third pull. This will not be a public show like [Laodicean] Pentecost had it." Looking at a diagram of the Great Pyramid we see the "little room" is the prophet's chamber just before the "King's Chamber" which we enter by the 'third pull' of the opening of the Word or revelation of the Seven Seals. As on the day of Pentecost when a hundred and twenty in one mind were secreted in a little room, He meets you in the little room of faith in your heart.

Brother Branham said, "Go into the prophet's chamber and watch them seven steps. Where did the guard meet the challenge to bring the comer into the presence of the king at the top of the steps? Was in the seventh step. There shows that we've got to come again with that same Spirit that was on John. He introduced the Messiah; he was greater than all the prophets; he introduced it."

"And we've got to come to a place again, to something that's going to introduce the Messiah [Revelation 4:1-2]. And how will the people that's believing Him know it, unless they're constantly in the Word to know what He is [i.e. Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7]. Daniel said the wise shall know, but the foolish, the unwise wouldn't know. They shall know their God." Now, now, how He said It'll appear in the last days is to bring the people back to the Word, so that the Bride will know Her Husband, know Her Mate, the revealed Word. That's why this has to happen. It wasn't in the Reformers; wasn't in Luther, Wesley, and the Pentecostals, and them; the Scripture says it wasn't. But it will come; that is His promise for this age."

"We're living in the age that His coming will be in. She must be identified in Him. Any woman must be identified with her husband, for the two are one. And Christ's Bride has to be identified with Him, for the two are One, and He is the Word, not the denomination, the Word. We are to be the children of the Light, and the Light is the Word which is made Light for this age. How do we know Light, except It comes from the Word. All right. The Word made flesh is the Light of the age when you see It; the Bible said so" (The Feast of the Trumpets, p. 15:112-115).

God, hiding Himself in simplicity.

The above diagram from Brother Morris Ungren's book, The Mount of God (The Story of the Great Pyramid), shows the granite leaf or "falling stone" door. It represents the 'parousia' Coming of the Logos foretold in Matthew 24:3 signified by the Pillar of Cloud photographed on February 28, 1963, the Stone that will smite the fourth Gentile world empire, which divided into Eastern and Western Rome, after its ten multicultural toes of iron and clay reunite in Lucifer's totalitarian one world government. "And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of pottery, the kingdom will be partly strong, and partly brittle. And whereas you saw the iron mixed with clay of mud, they will combine with the seed of men; [Rome's covenant with the self-styled Jews (Daniel 9:27)]; but they will not adhere together, even as iron does not combine with pottery." Thereafter the Kingdom will be restored to Israel under David's greater Son, Jesus Messiah, as revealed in Daniel 2:40-45 (4:3, 34; 6:26; 7:14, 27; Isaiah 9:6-7; Ezekiel 37:25; Acts 1:6; Revelation 19).

"The boss" or protuberance on the granite leaf is a combination of the Greek letters Alpha and Omega, describing a halo or nimbus over a full loaf of bread at the top of the pyramid meaning the Capstone revelation of Christ's end-time Bride for the "new meat offering" of two loaves of bread baked with leaven, hence "the boss" is offset from the center by one inch representing the imperfection of our unredeemed flesh, waved before the Lord in the manifestation of the Sons of God for acceptance by the 'third pull,' our body change and resurrection of the Church Age saints (Leviticus 23;15-21; Hebrews 11:39-40). Malachi 4:1-3: "Behold, the day is coming, burning like a furnace; when all the arrogant, and all evildoers will be stubble: and the day that is coming will burn them up, says the Lord of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. But for you who revere My Name, the Sun of righteousness will arise with healing in its wings [for your glorification]; and you will go forth [into the millennium], and leap like calves let out for pasture. And you will tread down the wicked; for they shall be [atomic] ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I do this, says the Lord of hosts".

When Brother Branham was describing the New Jerusalem he said, "There is another measure, the pyramid, that proves it" (The Future Home of the Heavenly Bridegroom and the Earthly Bride, p. 44:372). The boss on the granite leaf, whose amber colour represents the Shekinah, is the key to the lineal measurement of the prophetic galleries within the Bible in Stone of one pyramid inch to the year, as the Seventh Seal of the printed Bible is the key by means of which redemption is revealed. The boss projects one pyramid inch above the face of the granite leaf, and is, as we have said, offset from the center by one pyramid inch.

As the Lord said to Nathan, tell David, "I have been with you in all of your undertakings, and have cut off all your enemies from before you, and I will make your name of equal reputation to that of the greatest men on earth," the Angel of the Lord told Brother Branham: "You have been borned in this world to take a gift of Divine healing to the people. Many will not believe you; yet many will. If you'll be sincere and will get the people to believe you, not even cancer shall stand before your prayer" (At Thy Word Lord, #48-0305).

"On May the seventh, 1946, Green's Mill, Indiana, there was an Angel come into the room where I was at, a Man walking. He didn't have wings; He was just a big man, had a white garment down to His feet. And He said that I was born to pray for sick people. And I told Him I was uneducated, illiterate, and I wasn't able to go. He said I'd be praying for kings and monarchs and, Message around the world, a Message that would bring the second Coming of Christ was near. And I told Him I couldn't do it. And He told me then for me to put my hands on the people and it would be told what was wrong. [His 'first pull']. He said, "Then, if you'll be sincere, it'll come to pass that you'll even know the secrets of their heart," [his 'second pull'] and said, "by this they will believe" (Prayer Line, #53-1127).

David wanted to build God a house, but God instructed him through Nathan the prophet that because he was surrounded by wars on every side he could not build the House of the Lord. "Furthermore, I tell you that the Lord will build you a house. . . And when your days are fulfilled, and you sleep with your fathers, I will raise up your seed after you, and I will establish his kingdom. he will build a House for My Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom for ever." Acts 4:47-50, "Solomon built Him a House. However the most High does not dwell in a building made with human hands; as the prophet says: Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool: what sort of house will you build Me? says the Lord: or what is the place of My rest? Has not My hand made all these things?" When the real Seed came, David's greater Son, He said concerning Jerusalem's Temple, "There shall not be one stone left standing upon another," (Matthew 24:2). And He tried to point Israel to "a greater and more perfect tabernacle . . . a building of God, a House not made with hands, eternal in the heavens" (I Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 9:11; Revelation 21:2-3).

John saw this new Temple descending from God out of heaven, adorned as a bride for her husband, and a great Voice out of heaven said, "Behold, the Tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. And He will wipe all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things are passed away".

Neither David nor Solomon could build this true Tabernacle, which Jesus would prepare through two thousand years of mediation for the ignorance of the Church Age saints whose imperfect revelation of PART-Word would otherwise not fit them for redemption and their place in God's Temple, thus the angels to the Seven Church Ages could not prepare it. But when the last saint predestinated to the PART-Word Body was born-again in 1963, Christ's Mediation was fulfilled, and redemption was over because His end-time Bride and the 144,000 elect Israelites were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary as we are all predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word Brother Branham introduced at the Builder's second or 'parousia' Coming. Many people from different places photographed the sign of His Coming (Revelation 1:7, 14; Daniel 7:9; Matthew 26:64; Acts 1:9-11) which was published worldwide in newspapers, magazines and scientific journals, but of the millions who have seen the pictures, few will be stones raised up as children to Abraham (Matthew 3:9).

His Coming, shown on the main page of our Church Website, was hidden from the wise and prudent in the simplicity of His promised Word, and revealed unto babes (Matthew 11:25-27).

Isaiah 53:1 asks, "Who has believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed"? In other words, the arm of the Lord is revealed to those who have believed our report. Many people miss Him because of the simplicity in which He reveals Himself. They look back through the Bible, praising God for the great things He has done in anticipation of His future promises, but overlook the present Truth—what Jesus is doing now, because they fail to recognize the simple means He employed to accomplish them.

Men visit the Great Pyramid, an antediluvian structure build by an advanced civilization employing superior technology based no doubt on the simplicity of a far deeper understanding of natural laws than we have today. This ancient stone in Baalbek was hewn from a single block and weighs at least 1,070 tons. No modern crane could move it. This column 13'5" x 15'6" x 69'11", was hewn as one solid piece and weighs 1,200 tons. Contrast the size of the two men (encircled). Its two cousins in place in the base of the "Temple of Jupiter" each weigh over 1,000 tons. In the Great Pyramid, granite blocks weighting 40 to 60 tons were raised hundreds of feet above ground level to form the relieving chambers above the King's chamber. In the same generation, Noah build a three-decked wooden vessel 525' long, with a beam of 87'6" and a height of 52'6", and pitched with bitumen to make it water tight. The aircraft carrier USS Enterprise launched four thousand years later, and set to retire in 2013 with 51 years of continuous service, is just twice the size of Noah's ark measuring 1,123' with a beam of 132'8" at the waterline.

With faith in the simple Message of God, Noah sawed and hammered away on his ark through 120 years of ridicule by the unbelievers. It had never rained and in a world of more than six billion souls, Noah was the only man working out his own salvation with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart. At over a hundred years of age, Abraham was preparing to sacrifice his only son, trusting in the simple Word of God's promise, that "in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars, and as the sand upon the sea shore; and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies" (Genesis 22:17).

As the Word found rest in the saints of yore, it must find its resting place in our hearts so that we "stagger not at the promise of God through unbelief; but are strong in faith, giving glory to God." (Romans 4:20). For we must walk by faith in the simplicity of God's revealed Word if we are to enter His rest.

Jesus hates nicolaitanism, which is a clerical hierarchy between the laity and the Lord. He said, "You are not to be called Rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all on the same level as brothers. And call no man on earth your father, for you have One Father, who is in heaven; neither be called teachers, for you have one Teacher, the Christ. But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant; for whoever exalts himself shall be humbled, whoever humbles himself will be exalted" (Matthew 23:8-12; Revelation 2:6, 15).

Although God's criteria does not restrict persons of wealth and station or the learned, Jesus said, "It will be difficult for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven," because of his natural unwillingness to surrender his trust in and love of earthly possessions for faith in the revealed Word of God. A rich man may certainly enter the kingdom of heaven, but not as a rich man: "for it is easier for a camel with its hump and huge bulk to pass through the eye of a needle, the narrow gate for pedestrians through the city wall adjacent to the wide gate than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God" (Matthew 19:23-24).

Rich or poor, skilled and lettered or ignorant and unlearned, we must serve the Lord under preeminence by grace through faith. In this day of spiritual famine, impending judgment and damnation, we should simplify our lives, drawing nigh to God who abides in men of genuine, not manufactured humility.

Jacob and Esau were born of the same holy parents, but whereas Esau sought to make his own destiny without faith, and despised the birthright for worldly pursuits, Jacob overcame through faith in the promises of God, and physically wrestled Him in the form of a created Man until his righteous prayer was granted. His heritage is the Israel nation and Messiah, whereas Esau's heritage is their enemy, the polluted line of Jewry.

Born of Hebrew slaves, Moses was raised to be Pharaoh, trained in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and mighty in words and deeds. Knowing God's calling, he applied his abilities to deliver Israel through an insurrection, but God humbled him to preeminence forty years in the desert, then sent him back to deliver Israel by the 'third pull' of the invincible authority of His spoken Word.

The unchanging God tabernacled in a Man born in a stable to an unknown girl who was pregnant while she was betrothed to His foster father, a common carpenter. And at His second Coming He veiled Himself behind the tabernacle of William Branham, whose alcoholic father made moonshine whiskey in the days of prohibition, as a consequence of which his impoverished family gained a bad name, and ill-dressed young William was made a laughing stock to his school mates.

Centuries before Messiah's birth, Isaiah 40:1-3 and Malachi 2:1 prophesied His forerunner, John the Baptist, who came from the wilderness not the temple; and God came to Israel's virgin-born Temple rather than the Esau's Herodian temple. This Scriptural simplicity did not match the theological expectations of natural Israel who rejected John and Messiah, despite Isaiah's prophecy: "Comfort My people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and shout to her that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned, that she has received from the Lord's hand double for all her sins." The simplicity of John's Message was too sublime for natural Israel, who refused "the acceptable day of the Lord," and their Jubilee from bondage to the Law. But the elect of God have received it, demonstrating the Israel of God is not Semitic, and certainly not Jewish: God's Chosen People are those predestinated to be saints from every nation, tribe and tongue of Adam's race as foretold in Isaiah 29:10-11 (Romans 11:7-8).

As John bridged the way between Law and grace, Brother Branham stood in the gap between the Capstone of the holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the antitype of Israel's Pentecostal feast when the fullness of the Word returned as Son of man and Judge, and the Church Ages of PART-Word and Christ's mediation were done away. John foretold this Coming, "His fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly purge His floor, and gather His wheat into the garner; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire." It is so simple, it has flown over the heads of the wise and prudent: first the Holy Spirit is gathering the denominational thorns and briers ready for the burning, and once they are in ecumenical union, He will gather the wheat into His garner, and smite Earth with a curse (Matthew 12:3; 25:30, 37-43; Malachi 4:6).

The church world is looking for Christ's second Coming through denominational glasses instead of the eyes of Melchisedek. After He has departed, taking His Bride to the wedding supper in the sky, unaware of His Coming and going "as a thief in the night," they will fulfill Peter's prophecy saying: "Where is the promise of His Coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation".

John's ministry was so simple, even his disciples, some of whom became Jesus' disciples, did not realize he was the Elijah of Malachi 3:1 (Matthew 17:10-12; Acts 19:1-5). All in the circle of this Message know that Brother Branham was the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6 but few have recognized Christ's second Coming. And the rapture is so simple, the world church system has no idea it has been in process forty-seven years. After the saints have been gathered Home and judgments begin to fall, nominal Christians, like John's disciples will ask: "Why does the Bible say Elijah must first come and restore all things"? Although his ministry was a parade of the Supernatural, Brother Branham was so humble and His Message so simple, the world church system will know no more about the rapture when it has passed than they know about it now while it is in process.

People are looking for the Sun darkening at its zenith, the full Moon turning to blood, and the stars falling from heaven, but these physical manifestations will not take place until "immediately after the tribulation of the Gentile dispensation" (Matthew 24:29). Spiritually, they have taken place already. The Light of the SON no longer shines upon the denominational churches, which put Him without their camp in 1963 (Revelation 3:17-20), and the Moon, which types the church, has turned to blood because it is no longer reflecting the Son-Light but ministering Death as the stars of heaven or denominational ministers, being "angels who kept not their first estate in the Word," are falling, and Christ has returned as Judge (Matthew 3:12; John 5:27). Newsletter #632 showed photographs of these Spiritual signs written in the heavens and witnessed unrecognized by Christendom worldwide.

Before the fall Adam was a the son of God with the Attributes of His father and inheritor of Earth. As a son of God he was a creator himself, he could exercise the 'third pull' and control nature. But when he separated His relationship to the Word he forfeited his dominion to Satan and became a sinner by nature. Unbelief caused the fall and brought death but the consequences of the fall can be counteracted by applying death's antidote: not by works but belief in God's provided way of grace through faith in His revealed Word, as demonstrated in simplicity when He killed two lambs and placed Adam and Eve under their blood. In simplicity He taught Israel, "the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is blood that makes an atonement for the soul" (Leviticus 17:11). But ignoring the prophets and the fact there can be no redemption in animal blood because animals are not kin to man and have no soul that can come back upon a man, Israel took these instructions literally. They were natural shadows and types exemplifying a Spiritual antitype when Jehovah would display His Attribute as Saviour in the birth, life and accepted Sacrifice of Messiah.

When penitents of Adam's race apply this antidote by grace through faith in the Word for their day, not intellectual learning or traditions like Catechisms and false baptisms in three Titles, their sins are not just forgiven, they are remitted and placed on Satan's account as Peter taught (Acts 2:38-39). And their soul regenerated to spotless, sinless perfection like the souls of Adam and Eve before the Fall, taking them back across the Chasm where they are recognized as Sons in perfect fellowship with the Father.

There is only one way provided whereby man is restored to fellowship and eternal Life, for the Life is in the blood and we are the Blood of Christ by the baptism with the Holy Ghost. Because you were predestinated in Christ the Logos, your Name was written in the Lamb's Book of Life from eternity and you were accounted in Christ on Calvary where you paid for your sins. Being dead and risen again in His resurrection, you cannot be condemned again, for "it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the Judgment" (John 3:18; Romans 8:1; Hebrews 9:27). You were once judged, condemned and received the death penalty in Christ on Calvary, but God declared you innocent: when He raised Christ for your justification, He raised you in Him; now you are free from death and alive evermore (Romans 4:25; II Corinthians 5:13-21).

The 'third pull' operates by your oneness with God under preeminence to His revealed Word as Jesus prayed in John 17:21-26, receiving the mind of Christ in a situation and expressing that thought in speech. Redemption is identification by faith or understanding with Christ's substitutionary sacrifice, proving you are predestinated and one of those for whom Christ died. This is the simplicity of re-aligning yourself with the Logos.

Moses exercised the 'third pull' under the blood of bulls and goats, and when he spoke flies into existence he was simply expressing God's thought under preeminence. When Joshua did likewise at the battle of Jericho, the walls came tumbling down; and when he said, "Sun, stand still upon Gibeon; and you, Moon, stand over the valley of Ajalon." Jesus said, "If you abide in Me, and My Words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it will be done for you" (John 15:7).

If Moses and Joshua could do those things under the blood of bulls and goats, we should not stumble over the simplicity of John 15:7. "Whoever says to this mountain, Be removed, and be cast into the sea; and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass; shall have whatever he says. Therefore, Whatever things you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them" (Mark 1:23-24).

The 'third pull' is nothing you can do but revelation from God whereby you may receive the substance of His promise. And the rapture is a revelation, not a theological interpretation; to participate in the rapture you must live the revelation and "render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and to God the things that are God's" (Matthew 22:21; 4:4).

Brother Branham said, "Now I want to ask you a question, brethren, sisters. If God let all this happen because Eve disbelieved one little phase of the Word, and caused humanity to get to the place it's in, do you think we'll ever get back, disbelieving any phase of It? Think of it. If God could see little babies suffering, wars and troubles, famines and starvations, sickness and murder; and all these things has taken place, all because one little phase of His Word was doubted. Do you think we'll ever get back, doubting one phase of It? If it cost all of this, will He let you back free, let you go anywhere, say, "I don't. Can't understand It. I don't believe It anyhow"? No."

"You've got to believe all of It, no matter how humble It seems. Believe It anyhow. Say, "Well, I don't understand It." Believe It anyhow. You're not supposed to understand It. You're supposed to believe It. Just believe It anyhow. Now, that's way we are today, the same thing, that God."

"It's just like an army going to fight. We got spies in England. England has got spies here. The spies are in and out, around the world. Why? They're searching out our military secrets. When we find some kind of a military secret, as soon as they can find it, they take the same thing, or something, to combat it. It's a warfare."

"The greatest warfares, gone on, is a spiritual warfare" (God Hiding Himself in Simplicity, p. 15:104-106).

We are now in the prophet's chamber about to enter the King's Chamber for the resurrection and Millennium. The revelation of the Seven Seals we will be studying is the 'third pull' that will take us there. It is God opening His Word to you through the mouth of His Prophet. nl633.htm
