Bible Believers' Newsletter 676
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word. Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott
In my opinion we would be extremely naive to suppose the troubles in Libya and the Middle East are not the long-planned aggression of Western powers who have been apostate since 1963. The United States is the image of the Judaeo-Roman beast so we read fictitious reporting and foolish propaganda against Mr. Gadaffi of the sort devised by 'the City' when it accused German soldiers of bayoneting Belgian babies as they marched through that neutral country in World War I, the sinking of the SS Sussex, the figment of an over-worked Zionist imagination; six million Jews gassed in World War I, another six million Jews exterminated by the Jewish-ruled USSR between the wars, yet another six million Jews gassed by Germany in World War II; the Gulf of Tonkin hoax, the lie that Iraqi soldiers threw Kuwaiti babies out of humidicribs, lies funded by your taxes and the blood of your children to build Satan's kingdom.
The Church Ages ended in 1963. The current news is confirmed in our main article by God's three Bibles establish we are at the end of the Gentile dispensation.
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.

Japan Earthquake and Tsunami
Tokyo, March 13, 2011 An earthquake of 8.9 magnitude struck off the coast of Japan on Friday, the strongest ever recorded in the country. The quake churned up a devastating tsunami that swept over cities and farmland in the northern part of the country and set off warnings as far away as the West Coast of the United States and South America.
Kyodo News Agency said the number of dead or unaccounted was expected to exceed 1,800. It also reported there had been no contact with around 10,000 people in one small town, more than half its population. Entire towns have been swamped and washed away after a ten-meter tsunami slammed into Japan's Pacific coast. Japan has felt 13 aftershocks over 6.0 magnitude. See this before and after image. Japan sits on the infamous Pacific Ring of Firean area that accounts for about 80 per cent of the world's earthquakes.
The Japanese government has declared a state of emergency. The operator of quake-hit Japanese nuclear reactors says the top of fuel rods are three meters above wateran indication of a possible meltdown. . .

Comment: Be prepared for fallout across North America in three days, lasting indefinitely. Japanese authorities have revised the magnitude of Friday's earthquake to 9.0 from 8.9, the Japan Meteorological Agency says. In magnitude terms, the upgrade placed the quake in equal fourth on a US Geographical Survey list, tied with the 1952 Kamchatka quake and after the 1960 quake in Chile with 9.5, the Alaska quake in 1964 with 9.2 (spoken by Brother Branham three days beforehand as a token of "Judgment striking the West Coast," sinking Los Angeles and a 1,500x300-400 mile section of earth's crust), and the Sumatra quake in 2004 with 9.1.
Gold and Silver-backed US dollar
March 18, 1963 "Like this fellow down here in (What's his name?) Castro did. He done the only smart thing he ever did do then, when he destroyed the bonds: paid them off and destroyed them. Notice, but we can't do that. These guys won't let us. The rich merchants of the earth hold it, and then there's only one thing to do: The Catholic church can pay it off. She's the only one that's got the money; she can do it, and she will do it. And in doing this to get it, she'll compromise with the Jews and make a covenant, and when she makes this covenant with the Jews. . . Now, remember, I'm taking this from the Scriptures. And now, when she does this and makes this covenant, we notice in Daniel 8:23 and 25 he will cause craft to prosper, (and craft is manufacturing), in his hand."
"And he makes this covenant with the Jews, and in the midst of this three and a half years, he breaks his covenant as soon as he gets the thing wrapped up and gets the money of the Jews tied up. And when he does that, oh, my, oh, my, he's called the antichrist until the end of the Church Age, for he and his children are against Christ and the Word. This man's called the antichrist. Now, he's going to hold the money. And that's where I think he'll come in. Just a minute, while I say this, then I want to go back to it in a minute. He's called the antichrist and will be called the antichrist in the sight of God until the end time. Now, but then he'll be called something else.
"Now, when he gets the money all under control, then he'll break this covenant with the Jews, as Daniel here said he would do it, in the midst of the last half of the Seventy Weeks of Daniel. And then, brother, what will he do? He will have all of the world trade and the commerce, a pact with the world, 'cause he'll hold the wealth of the world completely.
And during that time, them two prophets will rise on the scene and call that hundred and forty-four thousand. Then what'll take place? Then the mark of the beast of Revelations 13 will set in, 'cause he holds all the commerce, trade and everything of the world. And what will take place then? The mark of the beast will come in that no man can buy or sell except him that has the mark of the beast. Thank God, the Church will be enjoying a great three and a half years in glory. Don't have to go through that.

Comment: Wise politicians in the United States are seeking to prepare for the sovereign default prophesied by Brother Branham. They do not realize the collapse of the US dollar and all world currencies will be preceded by the close of the Gentile dispensation, the sinking of Los Angeles, and the brief "hot stage" of World War III.
NATO's Inevitable War: the Flood of Lies regarding Libya
March 4, 2011 In contrast with what is happening in Egypt and Tunisia, Libya occupies the first spot on the Human Development Index for Africa and it has the highest life expectancy on the continent. Education and health receive special attention from the State. The cultural level of its population is without a doubt the highest. Its problems are of a different sort. The population wasn't lacking food and essential social services. The country needed an abundant foreign labour force to carry out ambitious plans for production and social development.
For that reason, it provided jobs for hundreds of thousands of workers from Egypt, Tunisia, China and other countries. It had enormous incomes and reserves in convertible currencies deposited in the banks of the wealthy countries from which they acquired consumer goods and even sophisticated weapons that were supplied exactly by the same countries that today want to invade it in the name of human rights.
The colossal campaign of lies, unleashed by the mass media, resulted in great confusion in world public opinion. Some time will go by before we can reconstruct what has really happened in Libya, and separate the true facts from the false ones that have been spread. . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: Gaddafi's Eighth Wonder of the World Fossil Water in Libya Libyan Revolution Will End Gaddafi's Green Visions
Petroleum and Empire in North Africa. NATO Invasion of Libya Underway
As the United States and Britain look for an excuse to invade another oil-rich Arab country, the hypocrisy is familiar. Colonel Gaddafi is 'delusional' and 'blood-drenched' while the authors of an invasion that killed a million Iraqis, who have kidnapped and tortured in our name, are entirely sane, never blood-drenched and once again the arbiters of 'stability.' But something has changed. Reality is no longer what the powerful say it is. Of all the spectacular revolts across the world, the most exciting is the insurrection of knowledge sparked by WikiLeaks" (John Pilger).
Presented with this story are petroleum industry concessions maps for North Africa that people might want to ponder in between the Western propaganda on Libya. Amidst the full-court press of propaganda presented by the western media and State Department disinformation apparatus we find that Muamar Gaddafi is even accused of committing genocide against his own people. Are there double standards at work (Keith Harmon Snow)?
The more we learn about how the 'insurrection' in Libya unfolded the more it appears that behind the demonstrations a coup was being launched. Nothing else explains the overnight appearance of weapons including attacks on arms depots and military installations accompanied by well-timed rumours of atrocities being committed by Gaddafi's air force and 'African mercenaries'.
As has been pointed out elsewhere, Libya is not a poverty-stricken country, there is no mass unemployment, it has a decent health and education infrastructure so economics doesn't seem to be the major source of discontent.
"It was also under Gaddafi, and with oil money, that Libya attained the highest per capita income among African states. However, there is now a campaign in the western press to belie this, and to paint a picture of widespread unemployment, gaping social inequality and poverty among the Libyan people. Indeed, neo-liberal reforms ushered in recent years have resulted in inequality, with social programs and subsidies for the poor being cut, and the country's oil wealth increasingly being given to foreign corporations. The CIA is now even trying to pass off alleged "studies" showing that most Libyans are surviving on less than USD$2.00 per day. However, such "studies" have no credibility, considering that Libya remains a favorite among expatriate workers in the Middle East, given the relatively higher pay and better working terms in Libyan work sites" ('US - NATO Threats to Libyan Sovereignty and Territorial Integrity').
The media's role as events in Libya unfolded has followed the predictable pattern we have seen elsewhere; in Georgia, Operation Cast Lead and the attack on the Mavi Marmara. . . reports indicate a massive buildup by the US, the UK and others off the coast of Libya as well as the UK's SAS actually in Libya. . . So intervention in the internal affairs of Libya is already underway and the longer the civil war continues the greater the odds that the West will escalate its intervention, especially if it looks like Gaddafi can succeed in crushing the opposition (globalresearch.ca).
With approval from the government in Tel Aviv [on February18], an Israeli security firm is responsible for sending groups of African mercenaries to Libya to fight the protestors who have been calling for the fall of the Gaddafi regime for the last two weeks, reports Al Jazeera's website, citing a source in the Israeli press. The journalist from Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot, who prefers to remain anonymous, said that according to speculation in the security sector, Israel looks at Libya from a strategic perspective and in terms of security. The fall of Gaddafi would open the door for an Islamic regime in Libya. . . (alarabiya.net).
Nearly all of Libya's 38,000 Jews (1948 estimates) fled the country and immigrated to Israel when the fledgling Jewish state declared independence. . . Last week we reported on Gaddafi's suspected Jewish heritage, citing an Israeli television interview last year with an Israeli Jew of Libyan descent who claims to be Gaddafi's cousin. If that family connection is true, the Libyan dictator would be legally entitled to safe haven in Israel under the Law of Return, since he is technically Jewish . . . (israeltoday.co.il).
150 States to recognize Palestine by September
March 3, 2011 Some 150 countries will recognize a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders by September of this year, Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki said Wednesday.
Maliki claimed that 10 more states in the Caribbean region will be declaring their recognition of Palestine this month. . ."I think our issue will be raised not only by us but by the international community as a whole, including the United States of America." The state of Palestine has so far been recognized mostly by South American nations, including Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Guyana and Uruguay. . .

'The Holocaust Explained' Website clicks in UK
January 26, 2011 The British government has officially launched a controversial website titled "The Holocaust Explained," as part of the West's futile efforts to depict a myth as a reality.
The triumphant powers of World War II allege that Nazi Germany killed six million European Jews, mostly in gas chambers, but as pointed by historians neither the number of all Jews in Europe was anywhere equal to the figures of the holocaust nor were any gas chambers found in Nazi controlled areassimilar to the current lack of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq contrary to US allegations for starting war and occupation.
The holocaust, on which independent research is strictly banned in the West, was nothing but a preposterous claim to settle European Jews in the Muslim land of Palestine by falsely creating a sense of oppression for the Zionists. . . "The Holocaust Explained" website has been developed by the London Jewish Cultural Centre to exaggerate the case of the so-called survivors of what historians consider as a non-event. . .

Change You can believe in? Carbon Credits Fraud
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Working Group III [IPCC] co-chairman, Ottmar Edenhofer said that Cancun COP-16 actually has ". . .almost nothing to do with environmental policy. . ." its real purpose ". . . is redistributing the world's wealth and natural resources. . ." from the industrialized nations to the third world.
British Viscount Christopher Monckton called it ". . .a monstrous transfer of power from once-proud, once-sovereign, once-democratic nations." And IPCC Executive Secretary Christina Figueres summed it up before conference attendees when she said: "The world is looking for new answers to the political, economic and social changes which all countries face." She explained that these "new answers" were centered on how much money the developed nations owe to the poor countries of the world. Full story: youtube.com

February 21, 2011 The Pentagon was hit by a Soviet-era naval cruise missile called the Granit . . . it is made of steel and weighs 7.7 tons. It goes 2.5 Mach and cannot be stopped by any sort of anti-aircraft weapon. It hits ships right at the waterline, which is why the 12 foot holes in the six capital (structural outer) walls of the Pentagon began right above ground level without harming a blade of grass.

God created Time and Space for the Purpose of Redemption
Job 38:31-33, "Can you bind the gladdening influences of the Pleiades, [which appear as a cluster of diamonds at the Vernal or Spring equinox and represent the seven "angels" of Revelation 1:16], or loose the bands of Orion [master of the winter skies]? Can you lead forth the constellations of the zodiac in their seasons? or guide the Bear [Arcturus] with her sons? Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? can you explain how they influence the earth?"
"God wrote three Bibles. His first Bible was in the sky, called the zodiac. . . Job is the one explains it: how that he looked up, and he named those things in the sky. And notice in the zodiac, what did it start off with? The first thing in the zodiac is the Virgin. The last thing in the zodiac is Leo the Lion: the first coming of Christ through the Virgin; the second coming, Leo the Lion, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah."
"Then Enoch completed [God's second Bible] the pyramid . . . It speaks right straight to the end time now. They're in the king's chamber now by the measurement. But the Headstone never was put on the pyramid and that masonry sets perfect. . . until [not] even a little thin razor blade. . . could . . . slice along the sides where that mortar should be, and there's no mortar in it. It's just perfected, put together."
"So that's what it is when Christ and the Church becomes one. There's no mortar between; there's nothing between, just . . . God, Christ, and the person. . . you'll see it on the American dollar bill. On the one side, the left side, is the American Seal, an eagle with the spears in his hand. . . called the Seal of the United States. But on the next side is the pyramid, and above it, a great eye. And under here it says, "The Great Seal". . . even above the Seal of our nation? . . the Head-seal, because It was rejected, which was the Son of God, the Cornerstone of the building, the Head-seal of the pyramid. . ." (William Branham, Blasphemous Names, p. 11:7 12:5).
Speaking of His first Bible, "God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for [prophetical] signs, and for [cyclical] seasons [or Moonths] (Psalm 104:19), and for days, and years [or appointed times of assembly for redemption as in Israel's prophetical feasts thus far fulfilled in Jesus Messiah, the true Passover Lamb who was waved before the Lord and accepted for our justification the firstfruit of the resurrection that initiated the nine Gentile dispensations of the antitype of Israel's Pentecostal Feast]" (Genesis 1:14; Romans 4:24-25; I Corinthians 15:23; Ephesians 1:10). Consequently among the ancient nations we find the days of the week in universal use named after the Sun and the Moon and the five known planets, which the ancient idolaters glorified as the seven great gods. Thus we say Sun-day, Moon-day, Tuisco-day (Tuisico, the Anglo-Saxon name for Mars), Woden's-day (Woden being Mercury), Thor's-day (Thor being Jupiter), Friga-day (Freiya being Venus), and Saturn-day, anciently the most sacred of the seven.
Speaking of God's first Bible, Paul said,"What may be known of God is evident, for God has shown it to men. Since the creation of the world His invisible qualities such as His eternal power and deity have been clearly visible and understood through His handiwork. So that they are without excuse; for although they knew God they did not honour Him as God or give thanks, but indulged in speculations until their stupid minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools" (Romans 1:19-22).
God continued, "Let them be lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He also made the stars [or zodiac, His first Bible] and God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give Light of Spiritual revelation upon the earth. . ." No less than our Lord Jesus Christ who said, "I am the Light of the world: he who follows Me will not walk in darkness, but shall have the Light of Life." He is the zodiac, God's Word made flesh (Genesis 1:14-17; John:8:12). "So then faith comes by listening and paying heed to the Word of God. But what about the Israelites I ask, have they not heard? Indeed they have, for the witness of the stars has been broadcast over the whole earth, and their Message to the ends of the world" (Romans 10:17-18). "God who commanded "Let there be Light in the darkness" (Genesis 1:16-17), has shone in our hearts to make us understand that it is the brightness of His glory that is revealed in the presence of Jesus Christ" (II Corinthians 4:6).
So before Christian missionaries came to preach the Good News "The heavens declared [Jesus Christ is] the glory of God; and [as a messenger] the firmament proclaimed His handiwork [through the revelation of the zodiac]. Day after day pours forth speech, and night after night declares knowledge. Without a sound or word, silent in the skies, their Message reaches out to all the world. The Sun lives in the heavens where God placed it, and moves out across the skies as radiant as a Bridegroom going to his wedding, and as a strong man runs its course with joy. Its rising is from one end of the heavens and its circuit to the other end, and nothing is hid from its heat" (Psalm 19:1-6).
John 3:28-31, "John the Baptist said, I am not the Messiah, I am sent to prepare the way for Him. He who has the Bride is the Bridegroom: but the Bridegroom's friend, who stands and hears Him, rejoices greatly at the Bridegroom's voice, so my joy is complete. He must increase and I must diminish. He who comes from above is above all: while he who is of the earth belongs to the earth and speaks from an earthly perspective: He who comes from heaven is above all".
Employing astronomical terms, Malachi 4:2 says of our Bridegroom "the Sun of righteousness will arise with healing in His beams" causing those who "have the Light of Life" (John 8:12) to "put on incorruption and immortality" (I Corinthians 15:53). Jesus came from heaven, ran His race on earth, and returned to Heaven (Psalm 19:5). The Message of God's first Bible is identical to the Message of His second Bible which we portray as the unfinished Stature of a perfect man with the Capstone in heaven above in the office of Son of God throughout Christ's Mediation in the dispensations of PART-Word when the Bible was sealed; and as the finished Stature of a perfect man with the Capstone united to His redeemed Bride of all Ages since His second or 'parousia' Coming in the office of Son of man through the revelation of the Seven Seals. Thus the Message of God's third (and printed) Holy Bible is identical with the Message of the Great Pyramid of Gisa, and the celestial heavens are synchronised with events on earth.
Until Julius Caesar moved New Year's Day to January 1 in 45BC, the Vernal Equinox was used to indicate the start of the year with the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere so that March was the first month. This is reflected in the names of the months since Septem means seven, Octo eight, Novem nine, and Decem ten, and megalithic monuments all over the world, like Stonehenge, are aligned with the Vernal Equinox in accordance with the present solar calendar.
The Prophet said, "God is endless like eternity. You can never find the corner of a perfect circle. You could run and run through ages and eternity, and there'd never, never, never be an end to it, and that's the way God is. . . infinite, perfect to begin with. And He will always be the same. He never can change. Now, this great chain of perfection was broken by time space. Time came because of sin. Let's draw a picture of time. Let's see, a perfect circle, forever, forever, and then all at once, sin dropped in and put . . . a little drop in the chain so it comes down now. Eternity continues on, but it's not in its perfect condition. There's a little gap comes down, breaks over this way, goes out this a way. God had to do that because Satan caused it. And it dropped down to a space of time for the trying and perfecting, and for the purging of the lost, that God by His sovereign grace might someday lift that little gap back into the perfect circle."
"Now, time is this little loop that loops down. Jesus was from eternity to eternity, but He stepped into the time spaces, made flesh, and came through here in order to sanctify or put a streak of Blood all across this place to redeem it and connect it back with God again for all eternity. You see it?" That's all time is" (William Branham, Perfection, p. 4:26-28).
Before the foundation of the earth God's purpose was to share His Eternal Life with man. Ephesians 1:4-11, "He chose His elect in Christ before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless in His Presence. In love He predestinated us to be His Sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of His will, for the praise of His glorious grace with which He has freely favoured us in union with the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He has lavished upon us, making known to us in all wisdom and foresight the mystery of His will, according to His purpose which He has proposed in Christ: that in the dispensation of the fullness of times He might unite all things in Him, things in heaven, and things on earth. In Him we too were made His heritage, as foreordained according to His purpose, who works out all things in agreement with the design of His own will."
Life could not, and would not, be shared in any way other than through "God manifest in the flesh." This was a part of His eternal and predestinated purpose. This plan was to be to the praise of the glory of His grace. It was the plan of Redemption. It was the plan of Salvation. But God could not make man fall and be just, so he placed each of us on the basis of free moral agency which made the Fall possible and inevitable. The Fall took man from eternity into time, which is the finite dispensation of grace abounding wherein man could be redeemed by grace through faith and repentance. Wherefore "Today if you will hear His Voice, harden not your hearts like the Israelites who provoked God in the wilderness and could not enter into the nation's natural sabbath in Canaan because of unbelief." Now listen closely: "God being a Saviour, it was necessary that He predestinate a man who would require salvation in order to give Himself reason and purpose of being." Multitudes of Scripture bear this out as does the very pointed verse of Romans 11:36, "For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things: to Whom be glory for ever. Amen".
The Fall submerged the whole creation under "the bondage of corruption"moral depravity and material decay with natural and spiritual death in man's day, a sufferance of approximately 6,000 years. We live in "the last days" or Messianic age of redemption and completion, a period of roughly 2,000 years in which Peter admonished us to "Repent and be converted (Acts 2:38-39), that as a result our sins may be blotted out (Colossians 2:14) when the times of refreshing or sabbatical millennium comes from the Presence of the Lord with the physical or 'erchomai' return of our glorified Jesus Christ who must remain in heaven until the final recovery of all things from sin, which God has promised through His prophets from of old" (Acts 3:19-21). For Israel "the last days" have been 2,000 years of the Seven Trumpet judgments for the rejection and crucifixion of Messiah, culminating in "the time of Jacob's trouble," or great tribulation of Daniel's Seventieth Week and finally, conversion and martyrdom after the Church has gone Home (Isaiah 2; Ezekiel 38:16; Hosea 3:5; 6:1-3).
Then will God restore the Kingdom to Israel under David's greater Son, and "earth shall be filled with the knowledge of our Lord Jesus, as the waters cover the sea" (Acts 1:6; Habakkuk 2:14). During this time we will learn to fulfill God's command to "subdue the earth and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon earth" (Genesis 1:28). The general resurrection will follow wherein we will judge the world, granting the 'saved' into eternal Life, and condemning the lost to the lake of Fire thereby completing the millennium with the final disposition of sin and even time. Along with this the heavens shall pass away with a great noise as the waters explode and the elements melt as fresh lava overspreads a fractured earth, dissolving any trace of sin's history and the works of man. Then we will enter the eighth day which is the eternity of a renewed heavens and earth (Isaiah 13:6-14; II Peter 3:1-14).
The winding up of the present dispensation of grace will be introduced by violent convulsions of nature under the opening of the Sixth Seal. Los Angeles and a 1,500x300-400 mile section of earth's crust will sink beneath the Pacific, tidal waves will sweep the oceans, the Pacific Ring of Fire will erupt, Florida and many islands will sink, and the mount of Olives will cleave, demolishing the Dome of the Rock and igniting the "hot stage" of World War III. The Gentile dispensation and man's day will have ended.
Isaiah 34:1-8: "Draw near, O nations, to hear; and listen, you people! Let the world and everything in it hear My Words. For the indignation of the Lord is against all the nations [which might have inherited the blessing, but are rejected like Esau with no place of repentance (Hebrews 12:16-17; Malachi 1:4)], and His fury is against all their armies; He has dedicated them to utter destruction (Heb. 'cherem') and appointed them for slaughter. Their slain shall be cast out, unburied, the stench of their corpses shall rise, and the mountains will be drenched with their blood" (Isaiah 14:19-23; 66:24; Revelation 14:12-20).
"And all the host of heaven shall rot away and be dissolved (Psalm 102:26; Joel 2:31; 3:15; Matthew 24:29; II Peter 3:7, 10-12), [Satan and his angels will be cast down to earth (Revelation 12:7-13), and the skies shall be rolled together [as by strong heat] like a scroll: and all the stars shall fall down, as dry leaves fall from the vine, and as a fig falls from the fig tree" (Matthew 24:29; Revelation 6:13-14).
"And when My sword has been sated in the heavens, it will fall upon Edom, on the people I have dedicated to destruction (Heb. 'cherem'; Isaiah 24:6; 63:1; Ezekiel 35:15; 36:5; Obadiah; Malachi 1:4; Romans 9:13). The sword of the Lord is coated with blood, besmeared with fat, and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the Lord has a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Edom. Wild oxen shall fall with them, and bullocks with steers; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust saturated with fat" (Revelation 19:11-21). "This is the day of the Lord, a dispensation of vengeance, a year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion" (Isaiah 13:6; 35:4; 61:2; 63:1-6).
The New Testament repeats these denunciations and "all things work together for good to those who love God and are elect according to His purpose." God uses your sufferings to prepare you for His Kingdom, "while simultaneously preparing to recompense tribulation upon those who afflict you; and to you who are afflicted rest with us, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them who know not God, and who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. They will suffer annihilation, separated from the Presence of the Lord, and from His glorious power; when He comes on that day to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired in all those who believe, because our testimony to you was believed" (II Thessalonians 1:6-10; Revelation 19:11-21).
Geographically, ancient Edom and Bozrah are in what is now the kingdom of Jordan. Racially, Edomites have been Jewry since John Hyrcanus, high priest and prince of the Maccabees hired mercenaries, defeated and forcibly assimilated the Edomites in 123BC. In 129BC Ammouius wrote, "The Idumeans were . . . subdued by the Jews [i.e. Judahites] and compelled to be circumcised, and to unite into one nation, and be subject to the same laws, they were called Jews." Numerically greater and predominantly Serpent's seed, these Edomites "were hereafter no other than Jews" (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, XIII, 9:1). Hence in the days of his flesh Jesus lived in "Galilee of the Gentiles; He would not live in Jewry because the Jews sought to kill Him" (John 7:1). Spiritually, in this day Edomites are apostates of Adam's race entitled to claim the birthright but proven to be profane persons in spiritual fornication with man-made traditions against Christ the Word (Hebrews 12:16).
The Lord is longsuffering and not willing that any of Adam's race should perish, but that all should come to repentance. I have been considering the longsuffering of the Spirit of Christ in Brother Branham concerning a great deception I believe he would have exposed had he lived to deliver his sermon, "The Trail of the Serpent." Those who took his notes know precisely what I mean. Sin is added to sin and wickedness upon wickedness, but the Lord is not deceived and if there is no repentance the day of the Lord will overtake them.
Isaiah 26:20-21, "Come, My people, enter into your chambers, and shut the doors about you [as the Lord shut the door to Noah's ark]: hide yourselves a little moment until God's indignation be past. For, the Lord is coming forth out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth will disclose the blood shed upon her, and no longer cover the slain".
Christ's Bride will be in the Palace celebrating the Wedding Supper with Her Groom and His Old Testament friends for three and a half years before He reveals Himself to Israel. On earth, "the non-elect, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world will worship Satan" by force majeure of the (once) Protestant US image to the Roman beast, or martyred (Revelation 13:8, 15-18). This will follow the close of the Gentile dispensation of grace and precede the judgment and final disposition of all opposition to Divine holiness that would preclude healing the gap with eternity between Virgo and Leo, putting an end to time after the Millennium.
"If Jesus said, "Go back to the beginning," there was only one pair of anything on earth. There was one Adam, one Eve joined by God alone. One female horse, one male; one female parrot, one male, at the beginning, as He told us to go back, there was only one pair of anything. Is that true? Then we find out that everything in the beginning was running in perfect order and harmony with God; nothing was out of cater. Everything in heaven's still in order; all the stars, the galaxies, the solar system, everything is perfectly in order. One of them move would interrupt the whole program."
"Now, listen. Do you see? One interruption spoils the entire program. Now, when human beings was running in continuity with God, with one man and one woman, this woman sinned. And it throwed the whole earthly program out of continuity with God. Therefore, one word added to this Book or one word taken from It throws a Christian out of continuity with God, throws the church out of continuity with God, throws a family out of continuity with God. Every believer can be throwed out by not accepting every Word of God" (William Branham, Marriage and Divorce, p. 14:91-93).
Pastor Morris Ungren explained, "Time began with creation and everything was placed within the motion of its power. God has placed most things under a law of slow growth. It takes time for a child to become a man in body and intelligence. Time is necessary for learning and to bring a man to maturity in body and intelligence. Time is necessary for learning and to bring about knowledge and wisdom; to develop abilities and talents. It all depends upon patience and perseverance. The same is true in our relation to God. Time must be set aside for it" (God's Story in the Heavens, the First Bible, p. 48).
The witness in the stars, like the Great Pyramid and the printed Bible, prophesy the works of God through eternity; they also declare the appointed times of their fulfillment and for "the restoration of all things" to eternity (Genesis 1:14; Acts 3:21). To us individuals, one day is one revolution of the earth on its axis, and one year is one revolution of the earth in its orbit around the Sun. The 23.5o tilt of Earth's axis causes the focal point of the Sun to swing like a pendulum on the surface of the Earth. This focal point travels north from the equator to the Tropic of Cancer, then south across the equator to the Tropic of Capricorn, and once again north to the equator. This annual cycle produces our four seasons in this dispensation of mortality. But when Christ begins His reign earth will stand erect on its axis; all of its curses will be lifted and there will be no more extremes of heat and cold, fierce winds and angry waves (Revelation 22:3). Every year on about March 21, the plane passes over our terrestrial equator as it travels north. This is the Vernal or Spring equinox. One complete cycle of Earth around the ecliptic is a Great or Platonic year. The exact duration for a precession of the equinoxes cannot be given as the rate is changing over time and authorities vary; NASA's current estimate is about 26,000 years. Bearing in mind that from the six days of a thousand years in which the Lord prepared this ancient planet for man's habitation until the Great Flood, Earth stood upright on its axis so that its orbit around the Sun was 360 days, therefore I have chosen to follow Brother Ungren's figure of 25,559 years for a precession of the equinoxes.
An imaginary line projected from Earth's north pole into the heavens points to Polaris, the North Star, and describes a circle approximately 25,559 years long. Were time to continue there would be no pole star in two thousand years because of the effects of the Platonic year, so that the next North Pole star will be Al Deramin in around the year AD7500, followed by Deneb, and in 13,000 years from now, Vega will again be the north star. The Zodiac is an imaginary belt in the heavens, the ecliptic or great circle around which our luminescent Sun apparently moves month by month throughout the year. The Moon and planets also lie within the ecliptic or plane in which Earth orbits the Sun, and are thus also within the constellations of the zodiac. Earth revolves counterclockwise on its axis, and like every planet in our solar system, travels counterclockwise in its orbit around the Sun. The twelve constellations of the zodiac were well researched by the ancients before the Flood as the Gospel of Jesus Christ was written in the stars. According to Josephus and more ancient records, Seth followed his father in the pursuit of wisdom, as did his own descendants. It is said that "they were the inventors of that peculiar sort of wisdom which is concerned with the heavenly bodies and their conditions and indications." Hornius says: "The first mention of letters falls upon Seth's times; who, being mindful of his father's prophecy foretelling the universal dissolution of things, the one by the Deluge, and the other by fire, being not unwilling to extinguish his famous inventions concerning the stars, he thought of some monument to which he might concredit these mysteries." This was the Great Pyramid built by Enoch. The antediluvians were eminently skilled in astronomy, and as all the emblems in the similarly divided zodiacs of India, Chaldea, Bactria, Arabia and Egypt are almost identical it would seem they followed a common model devised by common ancestors. Books existed since the time of Seth, a thousand years before the Deluge, and all the alphabets in the world had their origin from the same primitive alphabet. That alphabet was transmitted through Noah, and so arranged as to express the places of the seven planets in the Zodiac at the termination of the Deluge.
As the Earth year has twelve months of approximately thirty days, so the Platonic year has twelve Ages of approximately 2,130 years each, and at this point in the precession the Vernal equinox is entering the 'new age' of Aquarius. So the equinoxes occur a little earlier each year in the Sun's path to bring about the precession of the equinoxes; because of this the Vernal equinox, still signified (above) by the horns of Aires the ram, has moved to Aquarius, and in spite of the sign of Libra the Autumnal equinox is in Leo. The diagram to the left indicates that the orbit of the constellations in the zodiac travels in a clockwise direction, while the Earth, the Sun and planets orbit counterclockwise. Astronomical charts round the ages to 2,000 years, and astronomical reckoning commences each age at the Vernal equinox, so the six days of a thousand years commence on the cusp from Virgo to Leo, passing through Cancer to the Vernal equinox in Gemini. Genesis 2:1: "Thus the heavens and the earth [or universe] were finished, and all that they would contain [was spoken for an ordered habitable creation on Earth that would manifest on the seventh day]".
Genesis 2:2-7, "And on the seventh day God ended His work [of speaking a habitable creation out of nothing in order] to make (Heb. 'asah,' from existing material of the universe what He had spoken); and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because on it He rested from all His work which God had created (Heb. 'bara' out of nothing) to make (Heb. 'asah,' fashion from existing material)."
The rest of God does not suggest He was exhausted and inactive, it was His blessing or well-wishing and consecration of priestly doing in manifesting and bringing to perfection the creation He had spoken, not merely a laying aside of action. For in relation to healing on the sabbath Jesus said, "My Father is working still, and I am following His example" (John 5:17). There is no anthropathism here in respect to Deity except that which all human language and all human conception imputes by necessarily representing God in space and time.
God appointed the sabbath at the creation, but left its execution to a time after Moses, when in the wilderness of Sin he led unbelieving Israel to mount Sinai and published the "Law of sin and death" (Exodus 20:11; 31:12-17; 35:1-3). Israel's sabbath was to be a natural rest for body and spirit in the land of the Covenant, and has nothing to do with Christians. We have no part in the Old Covenant but are one with the Law of Life which is "the blessing of Abraham" (Genesis 28:4; Galatians 3:14)our new birth, a continuous Spiritual sabbath for the soul (Matthew 11:28-30; Hebrews 4). We who have entered into Christ's rest have ceased from our own works of labouring against unbelief, for "whoever is born of God does not commit sin [or disbelieve His revealed Word]; as His seed [the revealed Word (Luke 8:11; I Peter 1:23-25)] remains in him [by understanding, which is faith], and he cannot disbelieve because he is born of God" (I John 3:9; 5:18; Isaiah 59:21; Romans 8:1). Man left his natural rest when Adam redeemed sinful Eve and brought her sin upon the world (Romans 5:12). He will not resume that rest until his seventh thousand year-day on earth typed by God's rest, true to which we will certainly work in the millennium. We "will build and inhabit, plant and eat, and learn to subdue the earth and have dominion over every living thing that moves upon the earth" (Isaiah 65:21-25; Genesis 1:28).
"These are the generations [or commencement of the history] of the heavens and of the earth when they were created (Heb. 'bara' out of nothing), in the [one great day] that the Lord God made (Heb. 'asah,' fashion from existing material) the earth and the heavens [ready for supporting life, that is, at the commencement of the seventh day]; and every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. But a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the groundthen the Lord God formed (Heb. 'yatsar' molded or squeezed into shape) man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul".
When Brother Branham taught on the Seven Church Ages he demonstrated how the angel to the new Age came at the end of the previous Age, corrected the errors that had crept into the Church then delivered the Message for the new Age. Thus Paul was born-again in Pentecost, but he was the angel to the Ephesian Church Age, and John Wesley was born-again in the Sardis Church Age, but he was the angel to the Philadelphian Church Age. Only the angel could cross over into the Light of the new Age, and because God never changes, this rule must apply also in the Old Testament.
The Age of Gemini, the "twins" 6000BC to 4000BC
Adam was created in about 4000BC.
The Age of Taurus, the bull 4000BC to 2000BC
God made His Covenant of grace with Adam. The climax of the Age was enmity, unbelief and miscegenation between the descendants of Adam and the descendants of Cain was such that God grieved He had made man on earth, and judged the world by the Great Flood. Noah was born in Taurus.
The Age of Aires, the ram 2000BC to Jesus Christ
God made His Covenant of grace with Noah. Subsequently He made a Covenant of grace with Abram and because of sin and miscegenation between the descendants of Cain and Adam God separated Abram from his homeland and people and promised his blood descendants would disinherit the children of Cain of Canaan land. When Israel disbelieved, God placed them under a Covenant of works and condemnation, yet they ended in unbelief and miscegenation with the children of Cain. The climax of the Age was Israel's crucifixion of Jesus Messiah, who, as the true Lamb of God, was born in Aires. Because of sin the nation was separated unto judgment, and when Israel is converted it will be martyred for the blood of Christ (Matthew 23:33-39; 27:25; John 11:49-52; Revelation 6:11; 14:1-13).
The Age of Pisces, the crossed fishes Christ to AD2000
Through Christ's sacrificial death as kinsman Redeemer for the remission of our sins God brought Abraham's Covenant of grace into force for the elect of Adam's race, and "poured out His Spirit upon all flesh"sinner and saintand each seed, having heard the Message, manifested after its kind by the exercise of free moral agency and determined its destiny (Joel 2:28; Acts 2:17-18). For two thousand years Jesus sent the five fold ministry to expound the present Truth. Finally He veiled Himself behind the flesh of his humble Prophet, William Branham, a sinner-saved-by-grace, through whose ministry Jesus Christ revealed Himself "the same, yesterday, and today, and forever," by the Messianic sign of Hebrews 4:12, the last sign prophesied to the Gentile dispensation (Luke 17:28-30; Hebrews 13:8). The climax of this Age is a repetition of the sin of miscegenation with the race of Cain, now called multiculturalism "as it was in the days of Noah" (Genesis 6:1-4; Matthew 24:37); homosexuality "as it was in the days of Lot," and the personal second crucifixion of the Son of God as in the days of Israel (Romans 11:32; Galatians 3:22). Brother Branham restored the apostolic faith (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:1) and "finished the mystery of God" through the revelation of the Seven Seals which introduced Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming in W_O_R_D form as prophesied in the Gospels and epistles (I Corinthians 13:10; I Thessalonians 4:14-16; Revelation 10:1-7; 16:15). The Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 whose ministry will reveal Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to the elect Israelites were born in Pisces.
The Age of Aquarius, the Man Christ's 'parousia' to the eighth day
We live at the Vernal equinox of Aquarius. This age will compass the first resurrection, the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation of Christ's end-time Bride. It will see Israel's two prophets anointed with the Spirit that endued Moses and Elijah of old reveal the mystery of Israel's Seven Trumpets of Judgment to 144,000 elect blood descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the time of "Jacob's trouble." It will compass Armageddon and the consummation of life, Christ's physical return for the Millennium, the general resurrection and White Throne Judgment, and take us into the new heavens and new earth.
Jesus said, "If you continue in My Word . . . you will know the Truth, and the Truth shall free you from the bondage of sin" (John 8:31-34), but one will definitely NOT encounter His Truth in a denominational church today, because "the Way, the Truth and the Life" has been put OUTSIDE the denominational camp: Christ has nothing to do organized religion. Since the revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963 He has been calling the wise and foolish virgin OUT from Rome and her (once) Protestant harlot daughters, declaring, "I stand at the door and knock: if any individual hears My Voice and opens, I will come in to him" (Revelation 3:20).
How long do you allow the 'phone to ring before you answer the call, or decide no one is home to answer your call? Or how many times do you knock on the door before you accept that it is not going to open for you? Moses and Jesus said, "in the mouth of two or three witnesses shall the matter be established" (Deuteronomy 19:15; Matthew 18:16), so Paul said, "A man who is a heretic after the first and second admonition reject; knowing that such a person is subverted, and sinful, being condemned of himself" (Titus 3:10-11). "And Jesus swore by the living Creator God that once the Seven Seals were revealed, there should be time no longer" (Revelation 10:6). So just walk away from recalcitrants because, "There will be no stopping evildoers who will continue doing evil, those who are filthy will be filthy still: those who are righteous will continue doing righteousness, and those who are holy will continue in sanctification" (Revelation 22:10-11).
If you presume to a wisdom greater than the common THUS SAITH THE LORD of Moses, Jesus and Paul, you are a wilful evildoer blind to God's witness in the stars, His great pyramid, and His Holy Bible. nl676.htm
