Bible Believers' Newsletter #632
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus said, "If you continue in My Word, you are My disciples indeed; and you will know the Truth, and the Truth will make you free" (John 8:31-32), for "Where there is no vision, the people perish" (Proverbs 29:18). God is building His Church on a clear revelation of the mind of Christ (I Corinthians 2:16), Satan is building his kingdom by conditioning men's minds to believe the BIG LIES of his children. As the natural types the Spiritual it is essential we understand and discern Truth from fable in church and state history, for if we do not learn from history we are doomed to repeat it.
Be patient therefore, "study to show yourself approved of God by rightly dividing the Word of Truth" (II Timothy 2:15). Educate yourself by following the links and checking the references in the news and our main article, which in this issue commences a review of "The Revelation of the Seven Seals" delivered through God's Prophet William Branham in 1963.

The City of London's Council on Foreign Relations has released a four minute video to manipulate your mind, deceive your heart, and encourage you to love your enemy. Full story: youtube.com
Comment: The world is ruled by the Vatican and the 'City of London' whose power is the wolf of Babylonian paganism dressed as Christianity, and the Cabala of Babylonian fractional reserve banking. All hot air with no substance, the BIG LIE leads us from cradle to grave. Not many years hence the Great Whore will end the coalition and the 'City,' which rules Judaeo-Communist Russia, will bomb Vatican City State and the United States from the face of the globe.
Only the Truth can free your mind from the tentacles of Satan's leviathan. If you are convinced bin Laden did 9/11, open your mind, remembering . . . 'the City' lied about Pearl Harbour, it lied about the Titanic and the Lusitania, the Moon Landing and WACO; it lied about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction, and one US President said, "I did NOT have an affair with that woman"? Hands up those who still believe Timothy McVeigh blew up a Murrah building when all Government employees were told to stay home that day? What about 'peak oil,' global warming, bird, or is it swine flu?
Citing new "evidence" the White House is fingering the Taliban (which it created, trained, funded and armed) for the failed car bomb in Times Square, although authorities earlier declared it could not have exploded, and that the "bomber" had acted alone. But World War III was planned in the nineteenth century to bring political Zionists (spending the wealth and spilling the blood of the (once) Christian colonies of 'the City') into controlled conflict with political Islam to eliminate our recalcitrance to Lucifer's totalitarian one world government.
Now here is an historic BIG LIE. This historical Truth will cleanse and set your mind FREE from bondage:
What is the Historical Truth about WWII?
March 20, 2010 — "I am writing in regard to Mr. Carl Grassl's letter published in issue number 5, dated January 30, 2010 on page 3. I find myself unable to understand his remarks, in which he stated that he found it hard to swallow that Britain and France turned the actions of Adolf Hitler in Poland into a world war. He based his reasoning on the statement, and I quote: "All Hitler had to do was not invade Poland. No one held a gun to his head."
I find that a factually incorrect statement. I say this, because the historical record is not in agreement with what he has to say on the subject. It may agree with the Allied Version of the history of the period. But their version, and the true historical record of that time are quite different. I shall enumerate my reasons, starting with the German-Polish problem.
In 1934 the leader of Poland's government was Field Marshal Jozef Klemens Pilsudski and at that time Adolf Hitler was the Reichskanzleer (German Chancellor); their relationship was quite congenial—so much so, that they signed a German-Polish Non-Aggression Pact on January 26, 1934. The congenial relationship changed for the worse, when the old Marshal of Poland died on May 23, 1935. The man who succeeded Pilsudski as Marshal of Poland in 1936 was Edward Ryzd Smigly, and he did not share the desire to maintain good relations with Germany. In fact in 1930 he made the statement: "I am going to break out the German arch-enemy's fangs for good."
As early as October 24, 1938, the Polish Ambassador in Berlin was offered suggestions regarding a solution to some of the existing points of contention between Poland and Germany. It stated there should be a return of the purely German Free State of Danzig from the Polish Customs Union, into which it had been forced to belong on April 1, 1922.
In addition to that, the plebiscite was to be given to West Prussia, which was denied her in 1920. If the results favored Poland, a rail and a road dam between Burton in Pomerania and East Prussia and Dirschau in the Free State of Danzig was to be built which would link East Prussia with the German Reich. If the vote favored Germany, a similar dam was to be built from the Polish Province of Posen. The port of Gdingen (later Gdansk) would remain Poland's at any rate. Also included in the proposal was the desire to extend the German-Polish Non-Aggression Pact of 1934 to a duration of 25 years. Hitler's proposals were refused.
The Reich Chancellor made four attempts to solve the problems that hindered good relations between Germany and Poland—with no success.
One thing that had not been given up by Germany was the hope for a solution to the problem of Danzig and the Polish Corridor. German policy adhered closely to the opinions of Lord Lothian who said in an address in 1927 at Chatham House: "Now, if the principle of self-determination were applied on behalf of Germany, in the way that it was applied against them, it would mean the re-entry of Austria into Germany, the union of Sudentenland, Danzig, and probably Memel with Germany and certain adjustments with Poland in Silesia and in the Corridor" (cited by Fish in his book The Other Side of the Coin—p. 108).
Former Reichsminister Gustav Streseman, who had won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1926, had tried to regain Danzig, and revise the border in Upper Silesia. Former Chancellor Heinrich Bruning stated: "A German Government that renounced all claim to the Corridor could not survive more than 24 hours." One has to examine the history of the relationship between Germany and Poland to really understand the reason for the friction between the two nations. The Poles stated on October 20, 1930:
"In a war with Germany, no prisoners will be taken and there will be no room for humane feelings or cultural restraint. The German-Polish War will make the world tremble. We must awaken in our soldiers a super-human disregard for their own safety and a spirit of merciless revenge and cruelty."
On March 26, 1939, a provocative rejection of the German suggestions was forwarded after a partial mobilization of the Polish Army (for those who do not fully understand the mobilization of troops: According to the Geneva Convention, such action is equivalent to a declaration of war).
On March 31, 1939 there was a British-French Guarantee given to Poland which deliberately worked against a peaceful solution of the German-Polish problem. This immediately escalated Poland's rabid incitement against Germany. Polish newspapers demanded the occupation of Danzig, all of east Prussia, in fact they advocated that Poland should push its border all the way to the Oder River.
On May, 1939, Polish Constitution Day, according to J.A. Kofler in his book "Die Falsche Rolle mit Deutschland" (the counterfeit role with Germany), the most intimidating statement made was: "The German demand for an artery to East Prussia and Danzig's return to Germany must be answered with war against Germany. The ridiculous German Army, consisting of the undernourished generation of the Treaty of Versailles, with its silly dummy tanks would be thoroughly trounced in Berlin."
In the summer of 1939, Polish Marshal Edward Rydz Smigly said: "Poland wants war with Germany, and Germany will not be able to avoid it, even if it should wish to do."
Poland refused an invitation to diplomatic talks in Berlin, for which Adolf Hitler had requested England and France to be mediators. Immediately, after his request Britain ratified a British-Polish Mutual assistance Pact on August 25, 1939. On that same day, Hitler received the French Ambassador Coulondre and stated: "Polish provocation has placed the Reich in a position that could not be allowed to continue."
Referring to the French-Polish alliance, the Fuehrer added that he would not attack France, having renounced all Territorial claims against that country, but if France went to war for Poland, he would see it through to the finish; (Encyclopedia Americana—1953-Volume 29, p. 556g "World War II").
On August 30, 1939, Hitler drew up a document, which outlined a list of 16 points, which were German suggestions for preventing war, and resolving the German-Polish problem. The document was sent to London, Rome and Moscow, but Warsaw refused even to send an authorized representative to accept it. On the contrary, on that same day Poland ordered total mobilization, which I stated before, under the Protocols of the League of Nations is equal to a declaration of war. In addition to that, on that same day the German Consul Schillinger was murdered in Crackow, Poland.
Speaking of maintaining their honor, in the case of England and France, as Mr. Grassil stated, concerning Poland, it is well to remember that on September 17, 1939, when the Soviet Army invaded the Eastern part of Poland, not one word was spoken by either of the so-called honorable nations against the actions of the Red Army. In the Finnish Mannerheim Archives was a plan of encirclement by the Allies, with a secret dossier, which stated the first task to be accomplished, the occupation of Norway and Denmark, was planned for May 14-15, 1940.
Since Finland was to be in Soviet hands by then, followed up by an advance of the British and French armies though Holland and Belgium to attack the Rhine front timed to coincide with the Soviet attack from the east. The fact that the Soviet Union had been condemned as an aggressor for its attach on Finland, and expelled from the League of Nations, did not bother Mr. Winston Spencer Churchill in the least (Encyclopedia Americana 1953 Vol. 11, p. 2,241 "Finland").
Regarding the dossier mentioned above, Britain under Churchill built up the British Expeditionary Force under the pretense of aiding Finland, but the true goal was to occupy Norway and Denmark. (This information was discovered during the German occupation of Paris). The short term goal in reality was to stop Swedish deliveries of iron-ore needed by Germany's steel industry, as well as creating a northern base necessary for a military attack on Germany.
According to Birger Dahlerus, Swedish industrialist and author, on page 110 of his book, "The Last attempt" (Der Letzte Versuch): "On August 31, at 11:00 a.m. when I and the British Consul Forbes visited the Polish ambassador Legation Lipski in Berlin in order to submit Hitler's 16 Points to him, he declared he was convinced in the event of war, unrest would break out in Germany, and the numerically stronger Polish troops would march victorious against Berlin."
British Colonel John C. Scott who gave an election speech on August 14, 1947 revealed the real underlying issues of the World War II. Scott claimed that at the conclusion of military operations in Poland a war by telegram was waged between the Allies and the German Foreign Office. He was one of the transmitters in those negotiations.
The Allies gave the Reich two conditions, and their acceptance would have brought about an immediate cessation of hostilities, and a free rein for Germany in Poland. Those conditions were, Germany must return to the Gold Standard and the Leage of Freemasonry must be readmitted to Germany. This was not published until November 6, 1947 in "Tomorrow", which closed its article by stating "Some 55 million people had to die to make the Gold Standard in Germany permissible."
The man most responsible for wanting the destruction of Germany was Winston Spencer Churchill. To reinforce that statement, I quote some of his own words: "Germany is too strong. We must destroy her." These words were spoken in November 1936. Then again he made the statement: "The war was not just a matter of elimination of fascism in Germany, but rather obtaining German sales markets," as stated in March 1946.
In another book written by British general J.F.C. Fuller in 1964 the title of which is "The Art of War", Fuller stated: "Hitler's political ideas were not what thrust us into the war. The cause of the war was his successful attempt to rebuild a new economy. The roots (of old) were envy and fear."
Going back to that period of time when the Soviets invaded Finland, the Finns lost territory, but remained free, because of the resolute stand made by Marshal Mannerheim for 100 days with his brave Finnish Army, who, hopelessly outnumbered, finally had to sue for peace.
When I spoke of Britain's false actions by trying to use the ruse that they were an Expeditionary Force to help Finland, when they sought to invade Norway and Denmark, the British had already violated Norway's neutrality by mining Norwegian waters. The Royal Navy on the night of April 8/9, 1940, was underway to invade Norway under the code name of "operation Wilfred", but the German Navy got the drop on the British by ten hours.
Regarding Mr. Grassl's remarks about the Sitzkrieg: It wasn't Hitler who heated up the fighting. Let me explain what I mean. While the German Army was busy in Poland on September 7, 1939, the French Army crossed the German border in to Saarbrücken in what was designated "Operation Saar" and met little or no opposition from the German Army. By all means the invasion should have been successful, because:
1) The French possessed some of the best armour in the world, but their men were not properly trained in its use.
2) There was no German armour west of the Rhine River, and the Germans had no anti-tank weapons capable of destroying French armour.
Furthermore, the Germans were short of machine-guns, small arms of all types, artillery and tanks, because Hitler had massed his total strength against Poland. By September 17, five days after the French crossing had really reached the peak of their offensive, with the invasion of eastern Poland by Soviet troops, there was a feeling by the French that this European conflict might become a world war.
As a result of this, the French withdrew their troops to the Maginot Line on September 21, 1939, and by September 30th, French troops were ordered to retreat to the homeland (U.S. Military Magazine World War II, Sept. 1999, pp. 42-48 Titled "Operation Saar—A Lost Opportunity" by Kevin R.Austria; and "Invasion of Poland" pp. 26-34-76 by David T. Zabecki).
Winston Spencer Churchill who at the time was head of the British Admiralty suggested mining the Rhine River, to which the French strongly protested, stating the Germans would retaliate and shell the Seine River Bridges. In Britain in the House of Commons, it was suggested to bomb the Black Forest and cause uncontrollable fires in Germany. However, British Secretary of State for Air, Sir Arthur Kingsley Wood refused to do so, on the grounds such attacks would destroy private property. French Premier Eduard Daladier also requested that the British refrain from bombing Germany.
It could at that time be called a "Gentlemen's War", as the Germans were doing only what was operationally necessary. This static warfare would change regarding the bombing of Germany when Winston Spencer Churchill became Prime Minister on May 10, 1940, and immediately ordered the bombings of the German populations of Aachen (May 12), Duesseldorf (May 13), Eschweiler (May 15), Hamburg (May 16 and June 24)—all in 1940.
It was at this time that Adolf Hitler issued a clear warning to the British against continuing to bomb German cities. He would retaliate with bombings of English cities as reprisal. British military historian Liddell Hart said of Hitler's warning:
"The Germans were justified in calling these attacks reprisals, especially since they had announced prior to our sixth attack on Berlin, that they would resort to such measures, if we did not stop our night raids on Berlin. England continued her bombing war against German cities and towns."
Regarding Mr. Grassl's opinion of the war in the west, I would like to quote a statement made by another English gentleman—Attorney-General Sir Hartley Shawcross who said on March 16, 1984: "I believe now that Hitler and the German people did not want war. But we declared war on Germany intent on destroying it, in accordance with our principle of balance of power and we were encouraged by the 'Americans around Roosevelt (Zionists).' We ignored Hitler's pleadings not to enter the war. Now we are forced to realize that Hitler was right.
I close this letter by demonstrating the manner of thought Winston Churchill had regarding how the war would be conducted against the German Nation. Reflecting back on World War I (1914-1918), he wrote a book in 1932. The title of the book was "Thoughts and Adventures" and he stated: "Everything that happened in the four years of World War I was only a prelude to what the fifth year would have brought. The war of 1919 we never fought, but the ideas live on. Death stands at the ready, it only waits the word. Next time perhaps, it may be a matter of killing women and children, or the entire population."
I rest my case, as an attorney would say with the firm conviction that: "Only the Truth can set Man free."

Comment: "Someone" was shedding the blood of my father and yours on the basis of this BIG LIE of the City of London. Here is the current BIG LIE truthout.org:
Top Media Lies about Iran
May 4, 2010 — Supreme Leader Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei, who has the final word in Iran on such issues, has denounced nuclear weapons as un- Islamic and stated unequivocally that Islam forbids the "production and stockpiling of nuclear weapons." The Iranian fatwa against nuclear weapons is a registered document with the United Nations. Iran has been the only country to lobby for a nuclear-free Middle East. In contrast, Israel has yet to agree to a single IAEA inspection, and its nuclear weapons plant in Dimona is an open secret used to intimidate the Palestinians and neighboring countries. . .
American-style democracy has taken over the Middle East; just ask the Iraqis and Afghans how happy they are post-American liberation of their countries. Operation Iraqi Freedom has only cost 1.3 million Iraqi lives to date. In the last Iranian elections, an overwhelming 85 percent of voters turned out to pick the next president, and practically every pre-election poll showed President Ahmadinejad with a significant lead over his opponents. However, the West continues to claim Iran is not a democratic country despite it being the only Middle Eastern country with transparent elections and a fully functional parliament. Western hypocrisy of this magnitude must be respected, and the West has yet to call its allies (Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia) for throwing political opponents in jail and never holding elections.
By all instances, Iran is a democratic society, but to the United States and its allies, the very existence of a democracy in Iran is a threat. They removed this threat in 1953 when they overthrew the democratically-elected government and put in the totalitarian Shah. Speaking of democracy and sovereignty, the US would know a thing or two about those terms, considering for the past 30 years we have tried to overthrow the Iranian government and laid siege upon siege on the Iranian people. More recently, Congress voted to allocate 120 million dollars for anti-regime media broadcasts into Iran. It doesn't end there. The US also generously donated 60-75 million dollars to fund and support violent underground extremist groups like Mujahiden-Khalq (MKO), one of the largest terrorist organizations in Iran. Democracy in the Middle East is synonymous with murderous and catastrophic regime change. . . Full story: politicaltheatrics.net
Comment: "Who will ever suspect then that all these peoples were stage-managed by us according to a political plan which no one has so much as guessed at in the course of many centuries"?—Protocol 13:6. "Nowadays, if any States raise a protest against us it is only PRO FORMA at our discretion and by our direction, for their anti-Semitism is indispensable to us for the management of our lesser brethren"—Protocol 9:2.
It was the Mossad again 100%
The terrorist attacks on Mumbai were done on the specific date of November 26th is because Anti-Terror Squad Chief Hemant Karkare planned to reveal to the world press the next day, that the Mossad was involved in funding and training militant fanatic Hindu terrorist group, who bombed Malegaon, India a few months ago, attacks that the Indian government wanted to blame on Muslims. Karkare saw the facts and was not fast to blame the Muslims; he ordered an investigation and found that a Hindu terrorist group did the bombing. Upon interrogation the Hindus admitted to Karkare and his agents that the Israeli Mossad hired and trained them to do the bombings. The Hindus pointed out two Israeli Mossad agents in Mumbai, who were arrested, interrogated, and gave confessions. Karkare had the proof, witnesses, and confessions to blame Mossad, who planned, in arrogance, to kill Karkare one day before the expose, while at the same, time executing an Indian 9/11, "killing two birds with one stone." Karkare was shot in the back of the head while in bullet proof vest and helmet in his jeep. In other locations, five of Karkare's aides on the expose were also shot to death in different areas, quelling the Mossad expose from ever coming out.
An Indian cop ran into the Chabad Lubavitch center during the attacks and was shocked to see a bunch of "white men" holding weapons: the Mossad.
The shootings started in the Chabad Lubavitch center, where many boxes of ammunition were found.
The terrorists' blood showed evidence that they had taken LSD, Cocaine and alcohol. This is not the behavior of a Muslim. two of the terrorists had beers before they opened fire in a restaurant. These men were mercenaries who were hired by Mossad. These mercenaries are desperate men who work for the sake of their families, who need the money to survive the poverty.
The firefighters were told not to put out the fires, allowing the evidence to burn.
The satellite phones found on the terrorists showed that their last call was to a Dan Samuel in New Jersey, a Mossad agent. . . Full story: total_truth_sciences

The Trilateral Commission
After his visit to China in 1973, David Rockefeller stated:
"The social experiment of China under Chairman Mao's leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history" (New York Times, "From a China Traveler," August 10, 1973). Among the social experiments was the creation of a commune system in which "the family unit is broken up. . . The children are taken away from the parents and placed in government-run nurseries. . . parents may see their children once a week and when they see them they cannot show affection toward the children. The idea is to have the children and the family sever their affection and direct it toward the state. Names are taken away from the children and they are given numbers. There is no individual identity. . . The commune system is destroying morality in Red China: There is no morality because the love of the family is taken away. There is no honesty and respect among men or between men. There is no human dignity: they are all like animals. There is no guilt associated with murder of individuals for the improvement of the state" (Sworn statement before the House Un-American Activities Committee by the Reverend Shik-Ping Wang, East Asia Director of the Baptist Evangelization Society International, in Myron C. Fagan, The Truth about "National Council of Churches," CPA Book Publishers, Boring, Oregon, p. 10).
This is the Communist system that Rockefeller praises, a system in which 64 million persons were killed as result of Mao's social experiment. The number is based on the US Senate Internal Security Subcommittee's report.

The Bilderberg group will conduct its annual meeting June 3-6 in Sitges, Spain (a small, exclusive resort town 20 miles from Barcelona) behind a wall of armed guards who will seal off the resort in a futile attempt to keep the event secret.
Bilderberg's meeting will follow that of its brother group, the Trilateral Commission, which will gather at the Four Seasons Resort in Dublin, Ireland May 6-10. Leaders of Bilderberg also attend the Trilateralist's meeting to map their common agenda. About 300 attend Trilateral Commission meetings, which are conducted behind sealed-off, guarded floors of their hotel. About 100 will attend Bilderberg, which seals off the entire resort behind platoons of uniformed police and private security.
Bilderberg hopes to keep the global recession going for at least a year, according to an international financial consultant who deals personally with many of them. This is because, among several reasons, Bilderberg still hopes to create a global "treasury department" under the United Nations. Bilderberg first undertook this mission at its meeting last spring in Greece, but the effort was blocked by nationalists in Europe and the United States. . . major newspapers and network broadcasters maintain a complete blackout in the United States. That's because their executives have attended these meetings on lifetime promises of secrecy. Full story: americanfreepress.net
God Hiding Himself in Simplicity – Part I
The Lord showed Nebuchadnezzar a dream and revealed the interpretation through His prophet Daniel. In his dream the king saw a great image that represented the pagan domination of apostate Israel called "the times of the Gentiles" (Luke 21:24). They began when God's servant conquered Judea, transported Judeans to lifetime captivity in Babylon, destroyed Jerusalem, and razed His Temple. Four successive Gentile world powers: Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome, would hold dominion over Jerusalem until the consummation (Daniel 9:27); then Jesus Messiah will destroy his enemies, cleanse the Earth with fire, and return with the glorified saints of all Ages for a thousand years of peace, treading the atomic ashes of the wicked underfoot (Malachi 4:1-3). As David's greater Son He will rule a restored, worldwide kingdom of Israel signified as a "stone cut out of the mountain without hands"—not a Semitic kingdom, but an election out of every tribe of Adam's race—Spiritual Israelites who have overcome sin by faith in the promises of God's unchanging Word (Daniel 2; Micah 4:8; Acts 1:6).
As a sign of their entry into loyal service, the chief of the eunuchs changed the names of God's four Judahite heroes to names associated with Babylonian deities (Daniel 1:6-7). Daniel (meaning God is my Judge) was changed to Belteshazzar (meaning Bel's prince), Hannaniah (meaning Beloved by the Lord) was changed to Shadrach (meaning Illumined by Sun-god), Mishael (meaning Who is as God) was changed to Meshach (meaning Who is like Venus), and Azariah (meaning The Lord is my Help) was changed to Abed-Nego (meaning Servant of Nego). The king named Daniel, Belteshazzar "according to the name of my god, and in whom is the spirit of the holy gods" (Daniel 4:8-9, 18) because he saw in him the superior power and understanding of Bel (Baal).
In appreciation of Daniel's portentous interpretation, Nebuchadnezzar lavishly rewarded him with many gifts and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon and chief of the governors over all of his wise men. He made a golden image of Daniel (Daniel 4:8) sixty cubits high and six cubits wide, and gathered the royalty, chief officers and administrators of the people of the various tribes and nations of his empire to attend a service of dedication before the image and commanded them on pain of death to fall down and worship the image of that holy man upon a certain fanfare. The homage which the king required to be rendered was regarded as a test of loyalty to himself, especially in the case of those who belonged to the subjugated nations, as his victory over them was considered a triumph of his gods over their gods. Opposition to the gods of a kingdom was therefore equivalent to hostility against the realm. In this we see a type of Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches during the tribulation forcing worship to Satan incarnate in the beast and its image (Daniel 7; Revelation 13). The Holy Spirit has been deposed for popes, bishops, presidents, and counselors, and the Saviour set aside for a works program, church-joining, or conformity to a church system. This is the apostasy! This is the falling away! This is the open door to antichrist, for if One came in His Father's Name and was rejected, "that man of sin, that son of perdition" will come in his own name and be received (John 5:43; II Thessalonians 2:3).
The end of the Babylonian empire was signified by the hand of God writing on the palace wall in unknown tongues during a great feast hosted by Nebuchadnezzar's grandson, king Belshazzar. Daniel interpreted the writing, "God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it. You are weighed in the balances, and found wanting. Your kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians. In that night Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans was slain" (Daniel 5).
As the first Gentile world empire ended following a Message in unknown tongues written on a wall by the hand of God, the end of the Gentile dispensation was indicated by the hand of God writing on a wall. Two years before the revelation of the Seven Seals Brother Branham was teaching the Seven Church Ages from this diagram on the blackboard, when the Holy Spirit confirmed his inspiration by drawing the same diagram on the Tabernacle wall during the service. Then on December 30, 1963, the Lord displayed the same revelation in the heavens.
Brother Branham said, "Matthew 24 mentions signs in the heavens concerning this last day just before Jesus comes. I wonder if you noticed such a sign recently fulfilled as to portray the very truth we have been discussing. That truth is that Jesus has been steadily pushed aside until in the last age He is pushed outside the church. Recall that in the first age it was almost a full orbed church of truth. Yet there was a little error called the deeds of the Nicolaitanes that kept the circle from being full. Then in the next age more darkness crept in until the ball of light glowed less, and darkness covered more of the circle. In the third age it was eclipsed still more, and in the fourth age, which was the Dark Ages, the light had all but gone." Now think on this. The church shines in the reflected light of Christ. He is the SUN. The church is the MOON. Thus this orb of light is the Moon. It had decreased from almost a full moon in the first age, to a sliver in the fourth age. But in the fifth age it began to grow. In the sixth it took a great step of growth forward. In part of the seventh age it was still growing, when suddenly it stopped short, and waned to almost a nothingness, so that instead of light it was the blackness of apostasy, and at the end of the age it had ceased to shine for darkness had taken over. Christ was now outside the church.
Here is the sign in the sky. The last eclipse of the Moon was a total eclipse. It waned to a total darkness in seven stages. In the seventh stage the total darkness came [on December 30, 1963] as the Pope of Rome (Paul the Sixth) went to Palestine to make a holy tour of Jerusalem [from January 4-6, 1964, where he met Ecumenical Patriarch Athenogoras I, showing the (once) Protestant daughters are returning, contrary to Amos 3:3, to their harlot mother church for the second crucifixion of the Son of God (Hebrews 6:6)]. He was the first pope ever to go to Jerusalem. [So much for Peter's fabled papacy]. The pope is named Paul the Sixth. Paul was the first messenger and this man goes by that name. Notice it is the sixth, or the number of man. This is more than a coincidence. And when he went to Jerusalem, the Moon or the church went into total darkness. This is it. This is the end. This generation will not pass away until all is fulfilled" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 257:1 – 339).
Three is a witness. Brother Branham drew the Scriptural sign of the times on the blackboard; the Lord confirmed his inspiration by reproducing it on the church wall, and portrayed in the heavens. The sign was to attract the attention of the people for the Voice of a Message. The Voice of the Sign was the Prophet's 'third pull,' the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6, which is the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 revealing the Seven Seals to call the virgin out of Babylon to be filled with the Spirit, and was confirmed by the heavenly Voice of Revelation 18:4.
In Matthew 24:29, Jesus said the physical manifestation of these cosmic signs of the Sun, Moon and Stars will occur "immediately after the tribulation" to the elect Church which commenced with the sighting of Rome's legions on the Mount of Olives (Matthew 24:3, 15-22) and will continue until the revelation of "Light in the evening time" has drawn Christ's end-time eagles to maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Matthew 24:15-29; Zechariah 14:7; Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 16:46-57). Then the Seventh Trump will call the first resurrection, an earthquake will sink Los Angeles, and the Lord will anoint two Hebrew prophets to reveal the mystery of Israel's feast of Trumpets and reconfirm the New Testament (Daniel 9:24, 27; Joel 2 - 3).
During the Church Ages Christ was a Mediator for the ignorance of the saints because the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals, and with only PART-Word the rest was guesswork (I Corinthians 13:10). The apostolic faith in the heart of the saints was lost through Jewish and Catholic pogroms or polluted with "Jewish fables" and pagan dogma for 2,000 years. It is understandable therefore that the focus of ministry throughout the Church Ages was on Justification and the necessity for Christ's Mediation to declare the elect righteous. Christ received the faith of those who became written epistles of the Word for their day, placed their mistakes in the sea of God's forgetfulness, and baptized them into their position in the Body formed by Word for their day.
Speaking to the Church Age saints who are complete and seated in their part of the Word in Revelation chapter three, Ephesians 4:30 says, "grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby you are sealed until the day of your redemption," when the Redeemer claimed the Title Deed to His redeemed possession in chapter five, opened the Seals in chapter six, and returned in chapter ten to unfold this sevenfold plan to His end-time Bride who have no Mediator, to embrace her in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and victory over death and the grave (Revelation 1:18). The focus of ministry in this day of the fullness of the Word is no longer on Justification, but Redemption revealed. How He redeemed the saints in each Age, who they are, how His is redeeming this world, the identity of the different groups of "the saved," the millennium, restored heavens and earth, and many important doctrines.
So long as Abraham's Seed was in Mary's womb, the potentials were there, yet she was the husk or carrier, she was not the Word. When the Seed was delivered, It said, "I come to do the will of Him that sent Me. I and My Father are One. If I do not His works, believe Me not. . . Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me: or else believe Me for the very works' sake. Which of you can condemn Me of unbelief? I have done what the Bible said I would do"!
Like Mary, the PART-Word Church was the husk or carrier of the Seed, but when that which is perfect or complete was delivered in Revelation chapter ten, PART- Word and Christ's Mediation were done away (I Corinthians 13:10); the full Word was born into manifestation again and its fullness vindicated by the Spirit of God doing the same things behind the veil of Brother Branham as when It was veiled in the flesh of our Lord Jesus Christ who said, "As it was in the days of Lot, so will it be when the Son of man is revealed" (Hebrews 13:8; Luke 17:30). Like the wheat plant, the dried husk of the now apostate carrier of the Seed, the PART-Word church, has rejected Christ's end-time Wheat Seed (Revelation 3:17-20) and the Bride is resting in this holy convocation, ripening under preeminence to the SON-Light of the fullness of the Word for the manifestation of the Sons of God when she will manifest the 'third pull'.
Brother Branham was a mighty angel of the Lord, a covenant prophet anointed like John the Baptist, to introduce Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming. He did not fabricate his Message as he went along but unfolded prophecies of Scripture as they were revealed to him by Divine inspiration. Many of these revelations were foreshadowed symbolically in visions, in seemingly everyday but nonetheless significant happenings, and in Spiritual dreams recounted by believers and recorded in services years before they transpired. His December 30, 1962 sermon, "Is This the Sign of the End, Sir?" illustrates this point and should be studied in preparation for this series on the Revelation of the Seven Seals. The transcript is available for free download here, and also from here.
Reading from page 25:3 to 27:6, the Prophet recounts a vision the Lord showed him on December 22, 1962: "Now, it seemed like that my little son Joseph was by my side. I was talking to him. Now, if you'll watch the vision real close, you'll see why Joseph was standing there. And I looked, and there was a big bush. And on this bush was a constellation of birds, little bitty birds, about a half inch long and a half inch high, they were little veterans. Their little feathers was beat down. And there was about two or three on the top limb, six or eight on the next limb, and fifteen or twenty on the next limb, coming down in the shape of the pyramid. . . And they were pretty well worn out. And they were watching eastward, and I was at Tucson, Arizona, in the vision. For it made it so purpose that He didn't want me to fail to see where it was at, I was picking a sand burr off of me from the desert. And I said, "Now, I know this is a vision, and I know that I'm at Tucson. And I know that them little birds there represent something." And they were watching eastward. And all of sudden they taken a notion to fly, and away they went eastward.
And as soon as they left, a constellation of larger birds came. They looked like doves, sharp pointed wings, kind of a gray color, a little lighter color than what these first little messengers was. And they were coming eastward swiftly. And no sooner than they got out of my sight, I turned again to look westward, and there it happened. There was a blast that actually shook the whole earth. Now, don't miss this. And you on tape, be sure you get this right.
First a blast. And I thought it sounded like a sound barrier, or ever-what you call it when planes cross the sound, and the sound comes back to the earth: just shook like roared, everything. Then it could've been a great clap of thunder and lightning like. I didn't see the lightning. I just heard that great blast that went forth that sounded like it was south from me, towards Mexico.
But it shook the earth, and when it did, I was still looking westward. And way off into eternity I saw a constellation of something coming. It looked like that it might've been little dots. There could've been no less than five, and not more than seven. But they were in the shape of a pyramid, like these messengers coming.
And when it did, the power of Almighty God lifted me up to meet them. And I can see it. It's never left me. Eight days is gone, and I can't forget it yet. I never had anything to bother me like that has. My family will tell you.
I could see those Angels, those shaped-back wings traveling faster than sound could travel. They come from eternity in a split like a twinkling of an eye, not enough to bat your eye, just a twinkle. They were there. I didn't have time to count. I didn't have time, no more than just look. Mighty ones, great powerful Angels, snow white, wings set in head, and they were "whew wheeew," and when it did, I was caught up into this pyramid of constellation. And I thought, "Now, this is it." I was numbed all over, and I said, "Oh, my. This means that there will be a blast that will kill me. I'm at the end of my road now. I mustn't tell my people when this vision leaves. I don't want them to know about it, but the heavenly Father has let me know now that my time is finished. I won't tell my family so they'll worry about me, because He's fixing to go and these Angels has come for me, and I'll be killed pretty soon now in some kind of an explosion."
Then it came to me, while I was in this constellation, "No, that isn't it. If it would've killed you it would've killed Joseph, and I could hear Joseph calling me." Well, then I turned again, and I thought, "Lord God, what does this vision mean?" And I wondered, and then it come to me, not a voice, just come to me. Oh, that is the Angels of the Lord coming to give me my new commission. And when I thought that, I raised up my hands, and I said, "O Lord Jesus, what will You have me do?" And the vision left me. For almost an hour, I couldn't feel.
Now, you people know what the blessings of the Lord is. But the power of the Lord is altogether different. The power of the Lord in them kind of a places, I felt it many, many times before in vision, but never like that. It feels like a reverent fear. I was so scared till I was paralyzed in the presence of these Beings. I tell the truth. As Paul said, "I lie not." You never caught me saying anything wrong about something like that? Something's fixing to happen. Then after while I said, "Lord Jesus, if I'm going to be killed, let me know so I won't tell my people about this; but if it's something else, let me know." Nothing answered.
After the Spirit left me for about a half hour I guess or more I said, "Lord, if it is then that I am going to be killed, and You're finished with me on earth, and I'm going to be taken home now, which if that's it, that's fine. That's all right." So I said, "If it is, let me know. Send Your power back on me again. Then I'll know not to tell my people, or anybody about it, because You're fixing to come catch me away." And nothing happened. And I waited awhile. Then I said, "Lord Jesus, if it did not mean that, and it means that You've got something for me to do and it'll be revealed to me later, then send Your power." And it almost took me from the room.
I found myself somewhere over in a corner. I could hear my wife somewhere trying to shake a door. The door in the bedroom was locked. And I had a Bible open, and it was reading. . . I don't know, but it was in, I believe, Romans the ninth chapter, the last verse: "Behold I lay in Sion a cornerstone, a stumbling stone, a precious cornerstone, and whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed." And I thought, "It's strange I'd be reading that." (Spirit still packing me in the room).
And I closed up the Bible and stood there. I went over to the window. (It was about ten o'clock in the day or better), and I raised up my hands, and I said, "Lord God, I don't understand. This is a strange day to me. And I'm beside myself almost." And I said, "Lord, what does that mean? Let me read again, if it be You." Now, this sounds juvenile. And I took up the Bible, opened it up. There it was again at the same place: Paul telling the Romans that the Jews tried to accept it by works, but it's by faith that we believe it".
God gave Brother Branham three signs as He did Moses. Jesus said, "I will make you fishers of men," so employing the terminology of a fisherman the Prophet referred to his signs as three "pulls" by means of which a fisherman attracts the attention of the one particular fish he wishes to catch by pulling the lure. The tiny little messengers, and the doves which went East represented the first and second 'pulls' of his ministry—the Supernatural sign that appeared on his hand by which God indicated the nature of a disease and the Messianic sign of Hebrews 4:12. These attracted a school of "fish" from among which his 'third pull', represented by the constellation of angels, would catch the rainbow trout, or elect of God. This is fully explained in Newsletter #507, and in our free PowerPoint presentation, "The Second Coming of Christ".
A constellation is an alignment of stars. "The seven stars are the angels to the Seven Church [Ages]" (Revelation 1:20)—Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Martin Luther, John Wesley and William Branham, whose ministries were endued with a portion of "the sevenfold Spirit of God sent forth into all the Earth." As the revelation was restored through the Reformation of the last three Church Ages the Spiritual atmosphere was transformed from relative darkness to Light and aligned to form a cloud of pure Spirit, not atmospheric moisture but the Shekinah of the theophanies of the seven angels, portraying Jesus, "the Light of the world." After the close of the seventh Church Age and Christ's Mediation we find the seven spirits of God back before the throne which is now a judgment seat (Revelation 4:5; 5:6). The bush in which the birds settled represents the Laodicean Church Age with the Messages of the Reformers—justification, sanctification, and the restoration of the Gifts of the Spirit.
After the close of Laodicea, the seven portions of the Spirit that manifested the ministries of the seven angels were aligned as a heavenly constellation, for the ministry of the seventh angel was to gather up the incomplete or PART-Word revelations of the Seven Church Ages to restore the apostolic faith (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Ephesians 1:10; 4:13). Anointed by the fullness of the Spirit he revealed the mysteries of the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10, which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals to "finish the mystery of God spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began" and literally turn the hearts of the children to their apostolic fathers (Acts 3:21; Revelation 10:1-7). Now Christ the mystery of God once revealed in virgin-born flesh, is revealed as the Logos or fullness of the Word in His second or parousia Coming introduced by Brother Branham's 'third pull,' which is unrecognized by most of the "fish" as it is sent exclusively to catch the "rainbow trout." The 'third pull' opened the Word within the constellation of the fullness of the Spirit to incarnate and transform Christ's end-time Bride into the Capstone that completes the pyramid (Revelation 10:1-7; Romans 9:31-33). This was Brother Branham's "new commission," foretold in 1933 as he was baptizing the seventeenth of five hundred penitents before 5,000 witnesses on the banks of the Ohio River, when the Pillar of Fire appeared above him in the form of a star, and a Voice said, "As John the Baptist was sent to forerun My first Coming, your Message will forerun My second Coming".
The "great clap of thunder" or "blast that actually shook the whole earth" was the opening of the First Seal (Revelation 6:1). "So, encircled as we are with such a great cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and the sin that ensnares us so readily, and run with perseverance the course mapped out before us. Now let us look [away from the messengers and Messages of the seven earthly angels] to Jesus, the Pioneer and Perfecter of our faith".
Reading now from page 13:4 to 9, the Prophet recounts a vision the Lord showed him in 1957: "And in this vision I saw, there was something that had come through the lane, and there was stones lying all over my yard. And there was graders and scrapers up and down the lane, and trees had been cut down and rooted up. And I started to turn into the gate, and it was all blocked off with stones. And I got out to say to the man, "Why this?" And he got very hostile, shoved me backwards and said, "That's the way with you preachers."
I said, "I only ask you, why do you do this? You're coming over on my side of the street here. Why did you do this?" And he just almost slapped me and shoved me back.
And I thought, "I am just going to tell him that he doesn't know what he is talking about," and a voice spoke, said, "Don't do that. You are a minister."
And I said, "Very well."
And I turned around, and to my right, setting in front of the gate, was an old prairie schooner. If you know what: a covered wagon, with horses hitched to it. And setting opposite the driver's side was my wife. I looked back in the back, and my children was setting back there. I climbed up on the wagon. I said to my wife, "Honey, I've stood all I can stand."
And I picked up the lines, and pulled the lead horse, and started heading westward. And a Voice said to me, "When this comes to pass, then go westward."
This vision came to pass on the first week of January, 1963, when Brother Branham and his family relocated Westward to Tucson, Arizona, to meet the constellation of angels after the close of the Laodicean Church Age, where like John, who represents Christ's end-time Bride throughout the Book of Revelation, He was "caught up in the Spirit and shown things that must take place after the end of the Laodicean Church Age" (Revelation 4:1).
Brother Branham recalled that on about March 4, 1963: "I was going hunting with a friend, not knowing what was going to happen. And someone called me, the one that criticized me about that picture of the Angel of the Lord [left], the one that took it. I had to go to Houston about his son, for he was going in the death row and was going to be killed in a few days. And he met me in there and throwed his arms around me, said, "Think, the very man that I criticized comes to save my only son!" The humane society give me what they call an Oscar, or whatever you want to call it, for saving a life. [Do you see the type of Christ in Brother Branham? Mr. Kipperman, was a Jewish photographer hired by Dr. Betts, a Baptist minister to photograph him exposing Brother Branham as a fraud; God vindicated His Prophet, and Brother Branham saved his son from execution in the electric chair. See Newsletter #245].
Then we went back, I went up in the mountain to hunt. And there Brother Fred and I, one morning when I walked out, I had already got my javelina, and I looked and seen the place where he went. I said, "Brother Fred, go over on that mountain early in the morning now, about the break of day, and I'll get on the other one. I won't shoot at the hog, won't kill him. But if they start over this way, the herd, I'll shoot in front of them then run them back."
Brother Fred went out there and there was no hogs. He waved at me and I seen. I went down in a canyon, some big chasms, the sun was just coming up. I come around the other side of the hill, not thinking nothing about the prophecy. Set down, waiting, resting, I thought, "What happened to those hogs?" . . . Set down like Indians do, you know, cross-legged, and I looked on my overall leg and there was a bullheader. I picked it up, and I said, "That's strange! Here I am, about forty miles northeast of Tucson. There's my little boy Joseph setting there waiting for me." And as I started to look, I seen a herd of hogs come out about a thousand yards from me, up on a mountain, I throwed the bullheader down. I said, "I'll get them. I'll go get Brother Fred, and I'll hang up a piece of paper to let know which way to go on this ocotillo here, and we'll get Brother Fred."
And I started up the mountain, running as hard as I could on the other side. All of a sudden, I thought somebody shot me. I never heard such a blast, it shook the whole country. And, when it did, standing before me was seven Angels in a cluster.
I met Brother Fred and them a little after. Said, "What was it?"
I said, "That was it."
"What are you going to do?"
"Return home. For, THUS SAITH THE LORD, the seven mysteries that's been hid in the Bible all these years, these denominations and everything, God is going to open those seven mysteries to us in the Seven Seals."
There was that circle coming up from the earth, like a mist forming. When it did, it went plumb up into the mountain, begin to circle on westward from the way it come. Science found it after while, thirty miles high and twenty-five miles across, just exactly in the circle of the pyramid.
And the other day, standing there, turned the picture to the right, and there's Jesus as He was in the Seven church Ages, the white wig on, showing Supreme Deity. He's Alpha and Omega; He's the First and the Last; He is the Supreme Judge of all eternity, standing there, confirmed the Message of this hour. And there shall be Light about the evening time! What's it all about? What was it (What is the Attraction on the Mountain, p. 21:134-142)?
Brother Branham said: "He is the One Who opened those Seals; He is those Seals. For the whole Word of God is Christ, and Christ is the Seals that was open. What is the opening of those Seals then? Revealing Christ."
"And the very seven Angels which represented the Seven Churches was all completed, and we couldn't even see It. The [media] took the picture, not us. And there He is standing there, supreme Judge, showing that He is Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. What identification. Quickening Power did that to us."
"Quickening Power lets us see His Coming. Quickening Power snatched us from death to Life. Quickening Power gives discernment to know what's wrong with you, and what to do, what you have done, and what you ought not have done, what you should have done, and what you will be. Quickening Power. All these things" (It is the Rising of the Sun, p. 39:308-310).
Brother Branham said: "Something happened the other day. You read, or heard the tape, the seven thunders, "Is This the Sign of the End, Sir?" See? It happened the other day. You know these things. . . The time is at hand, church. The time is at hand. Don't, don't, don't wait any longer. See?
How do you know the rapture is not going on all the time? First thing you know it'll be past, one disappearing here, and there. It'll be gone the first thing you know . . . Judgment will strike the world. You say, "Well, I thought this. . ." "It's too late now."
You remember, they didn't know it until the day they entered into the ark, and then it was too late. The foolish virgin didn't know until she come back and found the wise virgin gone. Then she was left for the tribulation period" (God Hiding Himself in Simplicity, #34:2, p. 41:302-304).
Often we cannot recognize truth because our understanding passes through the fog of religious knowledge, establishment paradigms—perversions of history and social norms, instead of God's unchanging Word. nl637.htm
