Christ's Parousia


Bible Believers' Newsletter 986

"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
ISSN 1442-8660
Hello! Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, it's good to see you.

Android PhoneToday we will study two Greek words, 'erchomai' and 'parousia' that have different meanings yet both are translated "come" in our English Bibles. Most brethren, even in the circle of this Message, do not go back to the original tongues to analyse the etymology of words such as the humble English verb "come." I fear few subscribers and readers dedicate time not only to read but to worshipfully study our Newsletters in communion with the Spirit of the Living God that they might hear the Voice of the Archangel Jesus Christ speaking personally to their soul, drawing them to maturity in the unity of the faith in readiness to receive His translation power.

If you run that extra mile, follow the links and prove all things you will make your calling and election sure, and knowing your position in the Body you will never fail. In this week's news items you will see clear evidence of prophecies made hundreds and thousands of years ago developing toward their dreadful imminent near term fulfilment.

This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
Your brother-in-Christ

Putin: Pope Francis is not a Man of God

Pope Francis I
August 4, 2017 — "Pope Francis is using his platform to push a dangerous far-left political ideology on vulnerable people around the world, people who trust him because of his position," Putin said . . . "He dreams of a world government and a global communist system of repression. As we have seen before in communist states, this system is not compatible with Christianity . . ." Earlier this year he called for a global central bank and financial authority, and more recently he said "Americans need to be ruled by a world government as soon as possible for their own good." Pope Francis' idea that Americans would be better off under a world government doesn't stop there. The radical leftist pontiff also went on record stating that Europe should become one country under one government.

He is also on record calling for a China-style one child policy for Western nations, as well as telling a congregation in Rome that having a personal relationship with Jesus is "dangerous and harmful," (transcript) . . . Full story: yournewswire.com

Comment: This is precisely what Daniel, Jesus Christ, Paul and other prophets foretold. Rome will rule the world to the consummation of life; her pope will accept the proposition Jesus declined (Matthew 4:8-9).

Ernst Zündel: Unbowed

August 8, 2017 — A personal Telling Films tribute by Lady Michèle Renouf to German-Canadian artist, publisher and dedicated campaigner for historical truth Ernst Zündel, born 23rd April 1939, died 5th August 2017, the 72nd anniversary of the real holocaust of Hiroshima, at his ancestral home in southern Germany. Uniquely interviewed as he was released from Mannheim Prison in 2010 and during his journey back to his childhood home in the Black Forest, and updated in this unexpurgated version after Ernst Zündel's death, this film documents his decades of legal struggle for source-critical justice in Canada and Germany, literally illustrated by Ernst's own art works created during his years of imprisonment, and includes an interview with his lawyer Dr. Herbert Schaller. Full story: youtube.com

Comment: A great man and pacifist who took a firm stand for love, historic truth and righteousness against the enemy of God and man. "His lifelong campaign to counter anti-German hatred and Talmudic bigotry has been transformed through the alchemy of media falsification into itself an act of hate" (revisionistreview.blogspot.com).

RExxon Tillerson's Petro-Imperially Perfect Regime Change Threat

August 3, 2017 — "We are evaluating all of our policy options as to what can we do to create a change of conditions when either Maduro decides he doesn't have a future and wants to leave of his own accord or we can return the government processes back to their constitution."

That is the United States' top "diplomat" saying that a democratically elected head of sovereign state, Venezuela's president Nicolas Maduro, must leave office or "we"—the US government that is—will reserve the right to remove him (absurdly described as "return[ing]" the Venezuelan government "back to their constitution.") It is a declaration of the United States' presumed entitlement to conduct internationally criminal regime change, confident that it is exempt from global sanction or prosecution. Because we own the world and what we say goes—especially in our hemisphere. Caprice?

Nobody should doubt that Tillerson is signalling Washington's willingness to carry out a coup in Venezuela. Full story: counterpunch.org

Comment: It's the hemisphere's model democracy, struggling in the face of US-orchestrated political and economic war, along with CIA-instigated street violence—classic Washington colour revolution tactics used to topple independent governments . . . Washington, its rogue allies and the Vatican oppose political affirmation of Bolivarian social democracy . . . Vatican history isn't pretty. Pontiffs notoriously meddle where they don't belong . . . Pope Francis' high-minded rhetoric belies papal tradition, supporting wealth and power, paying lip service alone to popular needs and welfare (globalresearch.ca).

The NoWar Network condemns the media's one-sided attack against the Venezuelan Government and its silence over the terrorist practices of the right-wing Opposition. The mass media in practically every NATO country have for months, dutifully re-echoed the US government's one-sided portrayal of the Venezuelan crisis. The USA is the 'rogue state' destined to become "the image of the beast" (Revelation 13:14-18). Confirmed by HR-3364.

US has budgeted $49 Million for Venezuelan Right-Wing since 2009

May 17, 2017 — US Department of State has budgeted at least US$49 million . . . to support right-wing opposition forces in Venezuela who are now in their seventh week of violent protests to oust democratically-elected President Nicolas Maduro . . . According to a 2007 US strategic document leaked by former CIA-whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013, Venezuela was seen as the main adversary of the United States in the Western Hemisphere. The country was listed as one of the top six "enduring targets for the NSA," along with China, North Korea, Iraq, Iran and Russia. Full story: telesurtv.net

Comment: Rather the USA is the main adversary of Venezuela, China, North Korea, Iraq, Iran and Russia and other "enduring targets".

Trump Intel Chief: North Korea learned from Libya War 'never' give up Nukes

July 30, 2017 — The media is now filled with headlines about North Korea's missile test on Friday, which demonstrated that its ICBMs may be able to reach the continental US. What isn't mentioned in any of these stories is how we got to this point—in particular, what Dan Coats, President Donald Trump's director of national intelligence, explained last week at the Aspen Security Forum.

North Korea's 33-year-old dictator Kim Jong-un is not crazy, said Coats. In fact, he has "some rationale backing his actions" regarding the country's nuclear weapons. That rationale is the way the US has demonstrated that North Korea must keep them to ensure "survival for his regime, survival for his country."

Kim, according to Coats, "has watched, I think, what has happened around the world relative to nations that possess nuclear capabilities and the leverage they have and seen that having the nuclear card in your pocket results in a lot of deterrence capability." In particular, "The lessons that we learned out of Libya giving up its nukes . . . is, unfortunately: If you had nukes, never give them up. If you don't have them, get them."

This is, of course, blindingly obvious and has been since the US helped oust long-time Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi's regime in 2011. But US officials have rarely if ever acknowledged this reality . . . North Koreans and other countries can read, and so understand what America's foreign policy elite has repeatedly explained why we want small countries to disarm. It's not because we fear that they will use WMD in a first strike on us, since nations like North Korea understand that would immediately lead to their obliteration. Instead, our mandarins explicitly say the problem is that unconventional weapons help small countries deter us from attacking them . . . For instance . . . Full story: theintercept.com

Going after ISIS, Killing Civilians as Military Doctrine

August 2, 2017 — CIA stories are continuously shifting, but "going after ISIS" still seems to carry weight, so it is still used as a fake pretext to target civilians and destroy countries. Syrians saw through the lies years ago. A recent article from SANA media reports that (f)oreign and Expatriates Ministry urged the UN Security Council to assume its responsibilities, maintain international peace and security, halt the alleged international coalition's crimes against the Syrian people and oblige all states to abide by and implement all UNSC resolutions on counterterrorism, particularly resolution No. 2253.

Clearly, the UN is failing in its mandate to maintain international peace, largely because it is increasingly subservient to rogue US-led "coalitions" that are literally responsible for an overseas holocaust. But Syrians are aware. Amidst a tally of US perpetrated massacres on Syrian civilians, the Ministry accurately reports that terrorism could not grow without the unlimited support provided by the Coalition's member states to the terrorist organizations, particularly the ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra.

The report also notes that those attacks contributed to the spread of creative chaos, the killing and destruction which fulfil goals of the coalition and the terrorist organizations in destabilizing security in the region, destroying Syria's capabilities and prolonging the crisis in a way that serves the interests of the Israeli entity. "Creative chaos" is a euphemism for overseas holocaust (literally). When the lawless coalition bombs another country, it is bombing civilians, as it recently did in Mosul Iraq where 40,000 civilians were reportedly killed, and as it recently did in Syria.

Chaos and mass destruction is not collateral damage, it is the strategic goal. Thierry Meyssan explains it this way: (T)he simplest way to pillage the natural resources of a country over a long period is not to occupy the target, but destroy the state. Without a state, there can be no army. With no enemy army, there is no risk of defeat. Thus, the strategic goal of the US army and the alliance that it controls, the UNO, is exclusively the destruction of states. What then happens to the populations concerned is not Washington's problem.

Everything makes sense when seen through this lens. Iraq, Libya, Ukraine, have been, or are in the process of being destroyed, so they can be plundered, and rendered subservient to Imperial diktats. Massacring 40,000 civilians in Mosul was not a mistake, just like slaughtering over 500,000 Iraqi kids under five with pre-war sanctions was not a mistake. These are all strategic decisions.

Prof. Chossudovsky explains that "The 'Liberation' of Mosul constitutes an extensive crime against humanity consisting in actively supporting the ISIS terrorists' occupation of Mosul, and then waging an extensive bombing campaign to 'liberate' the city."

Martyred journalist Khaled Alkhateb was also aware of Washington's criminality. In one of his last reports, before being killed by Washington's terrorists, Alkhateb reported that the Coalition was attacking civilians, hospitals, schools, and food production in the Homs region . . ."

The "Coalition" and its mercenary proxies have been doing this for almost seven years now. Embassies need to be opened in Syria and beyond, the truth needs to be widely accepted, not ignored, and the carnage must stop . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

Imagine what would happen if China decided to impose Economic Sanctions on the USA?

August 3, 2017 — In June, Washington threatened Beijing with a sanctions regime, in response to China's increased bilateral commodity trade with North Korea. Initially, the US sanctions were not intended to be against the Chinese government: selected Chinese banks and trading companies involved in the financing of China-DPRK commodity trade would be potential targets of US reprisals . . . Coupled with the aggressive legislative sanctions "package" recently adopted by the US Congress directed against Russia, Iran and North Korea, Washington now threatens China in no uncertain terms.

China is not dependent on US imports. Quite the opposite. America is an import led economy with a weak industrial and manufacturing base, heavily dependent on imports from the PRC . . . "Made in China" also dominates the production of a wide range of industrial inputs, machinery, building materials, automotive, parts and accessories, etc. not to mention the extensive sub-contracting of Chinese companies on behalf of US conglomerates . . . And with an internal market of more than 1.3 billion people, coupled with a global export market, these veiled US threats will not be taken seriously by Beijing. Full story: globalresearch.ca

Mass Palestinian Outpouring defeats Israeli Land Grab at al-Aqsa Mosque

August 3, 2017 — Mass civil disobedience of thousands of Palestinian people has defeated an Israeli attempt to take territory around al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem by installing barricades and metal detectors at entrances . . . "practicing Muslims and non-practicing Muslims and even Christians, have taken part in directly protesting the closure of al-Aqsa. We all recognize the significance of this battle, and so we all resist," according to Jalal Abukhater, who lives in East Jerusalem (Electronic Intifada, July 25).

For two weeks Palestinian worshippers refused to go through metal detectors, and prayed in the thousands in the streets outside the compound, day and night. Thousands of jubilant, chanting Palestinians surrounded the Israelis removing the final security obstacles in the early hours of July 27 . . . Western media has given scant coverage to this important struggle, nor to the increasing repression which ignited it. Corporate media reporting on Palestine, when it does happen, often obscures the issues. For instance, recent reporting in the New York Times and other outlets gives the impression that Israel has some claims at al-Aqsa. The reality is that Israel's presence there violates international law . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

A Picture paints a Thousand Words

August 4, 2017 — The Dow Jones hits a record high. The New York Stock Exchange margin debt reaches a record high. Complacency, as measured by VIX, the fear index, is at an all-time low. Don't people realise that when anything market-related is prefaced with 'record' or 'all-time' it's closer to the end, and NOT the beginning, of a trend? . . . Haven't US investors seen the chart? Or heard the saying 'a picture paints a thousand words'?

Apparently not . . . Extrapolation—projecting the past into the future—is one of the biggest mistakes investors make . . . Full story: Vern Gowdie

Comment: The red dotted line on this graph is actually how the Dow Jones Industrial Average has performed in 2017. Look at what's ahead. When the US share market falls hard from its historic high, shockwaves will be sent around the world.

In 1962 Brother Branham we are now spending taxes that'll be paid forty years from today. "When God sends forth a Message and . . . people . . . don't receive it, then He withdraws His servant and sends His plagues: famine, death, spiritually speaking, physically also. You watch for a depression, brother. You think you've seen something; you just wait after while. You haven't seen nothing" (Jezebel Religion, p. 22:100).

Sexuality and Gender

Fall, 2016 — Questions related to sexuality and gender . . . have also vexed American politics . . . written by Dr. Lawrence S. Mayer, an epidemiologist trained in psychiatry, and Dr. Paul R. McHugh, arguably the most important American psychiatrist of the last half-century . . . Examining research from the biological, psychological, and social sciences, this report shows that some of the most frequently heard claims about sexuality and gender are not supported by scientific evidence. The report has a special focus on the higher rates of mental health problems among LGBT populations, and it questions the scientific basis of trends in the treatment of children who do not identify with their biological sex. More effort is called for to provide these people with the understanding, care, and support they need to lead healthy, flourishing lives. Full story: thenewatlantis.com

Comment: From Genesis to Revelation gender equality is contrary to God and nature, and same sex relationships are abomination.


Christ's Parousia

The power of words and languages leads one to "study diligently to present oneself approved to God as a workman that does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth," ever conscious that eternal Life derives not from what the "letter" states but what the "Spirit" means because eternal Life is "the mind of Christ in you".

Concerning Jesus Christ "Abraham rejoiced to see His Day" (John 8:56), "Moses esteemed the reproaches of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt" (Hebrews 11:26). And a thousand years before Mary conceived "David said I keep the Lord always in my mind, for He is at my right hand" (Psalm 16:8). While the "letter" of these words will mean different things to different people their revelation by the Spirit will be THUS SAITH THE LORD what He means (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8).

The world and especially denominational folk reproach us because we do not believe their trinity of gods and baptism by sprinkling in three Titles: they decry our Prophet, the Scriptural holiness of our women who dress modestly, are "keepers at home," obey their menfolk, and have uncut hair. Their reproach is our glory as it is a reproach against Christ Himself for which they must answer at the judgment (Matthew 12:31-32). Jesus said, "Blessed are you who are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for yours is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you, when men revile and persecute you, and say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My sake. Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets who were before you" (Matthew 5:10-12).

Faith is understanding that takes command over one's mortal spirit and corruptible flesh, bringing them subject to the measure of the stature of the fullness of the anointed Word that is the Husband of our soul shining His glory in the darkness of this world.

Our New Testament was written in Greek and later translated into our English Bibles. The Greek language has many words with subtle distinctions in the expression of thought which are sometimes translated as one English word. This lack of biblical precision in our English Bibles has contributed greatly to the confusion regarding the nature and timing of Christ's Coming and the events that will occur in conjunction with that Coming.

Take for instance Jesus' cry in John 19:30: "It is finished" (Gk.) 'tetelestai' which means to bring to a close, complete, fulfil a commission and pay sin's price. The Messianic prophecy is accomplished; redemption is completed; "He has finished the transgression, made reconciliation for iniquity and brought in everlasting righteousness" for the Old Testament saints and those who have received the Pentecostal blessing (Daniel 9:24).

What makes Jesus' exclamation truly unique but is lost in translation is the Greek tense. He spoke in the Perfect tense, which has no English equivalent, and is a combination of the Present tense and the Aorist tense that is punctiliar: meaning something that happens at a specific point in time. The Present tense is linear: meaning something that continues on into the future and has ongoing results and implications. So what Jesus means is "It is finished and will continue to be finished to the end of the age".

The first element of the perfect tense: the Aorist, punctiliar, points to that exact moment in which the counsels of the Father concerning His sufferings were fulfilled, and all types and prophecies of the Old Testament pointing to the sufferings of Messiah, were accomplished. The shadow of the Law is abolished and the substance is come as in I Corinthians 13:10, "When that which is perfect [or complete—the fullness of the Word] is come (Revelation 10:1-7)], that which was in part [PART-Word and Christ's Mediation for ignorance of the fullness], will be done away," as it has been, because the work of man's redemption is complete and redemption is over (Hebrews 4:1-11).

The second element of Jesus' statement is the Present, ongoing, linear component of the Perfect tense that will continue until "It is done!" (Revelation 16:17; 15:8; and for Israel, Revelation 14:1-5, 12 – 15:4; 19:1-9). In Jesus' statement "It is finished" we have a declaration of salvation that is both momentary and eternal, Aorist and Present, linear and punctiliar as foreknown "from the foundation of the world," we now rest in the holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of Israel's Pentecostal feast pending the Seventh Trump and our full adoption (Ephesians 1:4-9; Romans 8:28-33; II Corinthians 5:9-21).

Christ comes only three times. His first Coming was through the womb of the virgin Mary who conceived by faith in the Word of promise and remained a virgin until after Jesus was born. As the last Adam, Jesus came to pay the wages of sin for all whose names are written in the Book of Life. Sin is unbelief in the revealed Word of God, the wages of sin is death, and the Book of Life is the genealogy of the first Adam. So long as the names of Adam's children are in that Book they are "saved" and will be granted into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment. Those whose names are removed are lost. "As it was in the days of Noah" most are not in Adam's race owing to the original sin (Matthew 24:36; Genesis 6:1-4) and without redemption as our KINSMAN Redeemer is not the last Cain.

Christ's first Coming was a (Gk.) 'erchomai' or physical Coming to meet sin's price and redeem His Bride. Erchomai means to physically come, enter or arrive; ex-erchomai means to physically depart, exit or go.

His second Coming was a (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming to gather His Bride Home for the Wedding Supper in the air. Parousia means arrival and subsequent presence and not necessarily a physical coming. We might speak over the 'phone, and although I am in Hong Kong and you are in India, we would be in one another's presence. Similarly, were we to view film of Brother Branham He would have come into our presence yet we would not be in his presence. Thus Christ came back to earth in W_O_R_D form through the mouth of William Branham, the Prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7 by the revelation of the Seven Seals, which was the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16. It is not Jesus the Man who has come but Christ the fullness of the Word. I Corinthians 13:10, "when that which is perfect and complete has come [by the opening and revelation of the Seven Seals], PART-Word and Christ's intercession for ignorance of the fullness will be done away".

The Church Age saints were all made up when the last one was baptized into the Pentecostal or Laodicean part of Christ's Body in 1963. The Bible is no longer sealed, yet millions of Anglicans, Lutherans and Presbyterians are impersonating the Sardis Church Age; millions more Methodists and Baptists are impersonating the Philadelphian Church Age, and millions in Pentecostal circles are impersonating Laodicea. These are all "good people," but God is looking for believers in "the present truth." As the Israelites rejected John the Baptist, the forerunner of Christ's first Coming, and clung to their animal sacrifice and Babylonian theology, the Gentiles have rejected the forerunner to His second Coming and cling to their substitute Babylonian creeds and barren traditions, "crucifying to themselves the Son of God afresh" (Hebrews 6:6).

Having recognized the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 the only way one can "see" Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming is through the eyes of Melchisedec and the "Voice of Christ the Archangel" whispering His amours to their heart.

After He takes us Home for the Wedding Supper in the Sky, He will gather the elect Israelites to the Land of the Covenant where they will receive the revelation of the Seven Trumpet mysteries. This will bring the nation to new birth in one day, all 144,000 of them. They will seal their faith in martyrdom as prescribed by Law and by the oath of their forefathers (Matthew 27:25).

These two Greek words 'erchomai' and 'parousia' have very different meanings, but both are translated "come" in our English Bibles. Herein lies the confusion of ministers and congregations who do not "study diligently to present themselves approved to God as workmen rightly dividing the Word of truth" (II Timothy 2:15); "proving all things and holding fast that which is good" (I Thessalonians 5:21) with "diligence to make their calling and election sure: hereby an entrance into the everlasting Kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ will be liberally ministered" (II Peter 1:10-11).

For Christ's end-time Bride His parousia is limited to the space of about half an hour from the opening of the Seventh Seal to our translation (Revelation 5:5 – 6:17; 8:1; I Thessalonians 4:14-17; II Thessalonians 2:6-8). His parousia Coming to the 144,000 elect Israelites will also be in W_O_R_D form through the mouth of the two witnesses of Zechariah 4, Matthew 24:31 and Revelation 11, limited in duration to Daniel's Seventieth Week. Thus Christ's unrecognized parousia Coming to Israel will commence with the Seventh Trumpet (Zechariah 14:1-9; Matthew 24:31; Revelation 11:15) and continue to the vision of His parousia at the consummation of Life (Isaiah 11:4-5, 10 - 5:6; 63; Ezekiel 34:1-17; 39:17-29; Revelation 19:11-21). As Christ's end-time Bride did not begin to recognize His parousia to us Gentiles until about 1977, the elect Israelites will not recognize His parousia Coming to them until the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. The resurrection of their two witnesses, and subsequently our 144,000 martyred attendants, will be a later stage of the first resurrection.

Christ's third Coming will be the (Gk.) 'erchomai' physical return of the King and Queen to earth with the glorified Old Testament saints and the 144,000 elect Israelites to restore the Kingdom to Israel. His precious feet will not touch this earth until after the consummation of life which will leave the non-elect neither root nor branch. "We will tread down the wicked who will be nuclear ashes under the soles of our feet" (Malachi 4:1-3; Matthew 3:12).

Multitudes of these people believing denominational guesswork and the traditions of ministers who have rejected the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6 will be slain in God's wrath (Revelation 13:15-18; 19:20) as the denominational Israelites who rejected the Elijah of Malachi 3 were slaughtered by His servant General Titus. The Israelites were looking for Messiah's first Coming according to the prophecy pertaining to His third Coming as a General to defeat and expel the Romans and restore the Kingdom to Israel. Today's denominations are looking for the second Coming according to the prophecy of His third physical or 'erchomai' Coming that cannot take place until after the consummation of life.

I suspect the difficulty some find in understanding the distinction between Christ's 'parousia' and 'erchomai' comings stems from the absence of a clear revelation of the true Oneness of the godhead. God is omniscient, knowing all things, past, present and future, and being all-mighty He is omnipotent. He is not, however, omnipresent. God is one Spirit Being, not two spirits, Father and Holy Ghost, and one Man, but as Jesus explained to the elect Samaritan woman at the well, God is One Spirit Being. Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are three offices or dispensation claims of the One Person of God who cannot be in two places at the same time anymore than you or me, but as He is omniscient and omnipotent He has the authority and ability of one who is omnipresent.

Were God omnipresent Cain could not have departed from His Presence, and both Cain and the Devil would be full of the Spirit. Now you might ask, if the Holy Spirit is One Being, how can He be in you, in me, and thousands worldwide? God's Word is Spirit in a form we can receive and carry in our heart by faith. Hereby God can manifest physically as the Pillar of Cloud or Fire, a Man, rock or whirlwind in one spot at one time, while those with a clear revelation of "the present truth" enable the 'parousia' of His Presence to manifest simultaneously in many different people and places. Thus by the Word of faith the One Person of God is manifest in the many-membered Body of Christ throughout the world and in heavenly places (I Timothy 3:16).

Four related Greek words are:

'Epiphanaea' which means appearing, brightness, or shining forth;
'Apokalupsis' which means revelation, exposing to understanding, uncovering or unveiling mysteries such as the last Book of the Bible, "The Revelation [(Gk.) Apocalupsis or unveiling] of Jesus Christ" (Revelation 1:1). Christ loosed the Seven Seals in Revelation 5:5 – 6:17 and descended upon Mount Sunset with the little Book open in His right hand as seven thunders roared. He commanded His Prophet, "Return to Jeffersonville where I will reveal the mysteries of the Seven Thunders"—your 'third pull.' From March 17, 1963 to December, 1965 it "finished the mystery of God" (Revelation 10:1-7). Soon "the manifestation [or apocalupsis] of the Sons of God" (Romans 8:19) will be the 'third pull' of Christ's end-time Bride, not for a public display, but to elevate faith in us for translation grace.
'Phaneroo' which means manifested to reveal in one's true character, and
'Pareimi' which means to be physically near, at hand, or present.

The emphasis of today's teaching will be on the word 'parousia'.

Matthew 24:1-3, "As Jesus was leaving the Temple precinct, His disciples came forward to point out the buildings of the Temple. But He said to them, Do you see all these buildings and their massive and durable appearance? I assure you, not one stone will be left here on another, that will not be thrown down. And as He sat on the Mount of Olives [overlooking the Temple], Peter, James, John and Andrew asked Him three questions privately:
  1. "Tell us, when will the Temple be thrown down"
    Jesus answered this question in Matthew 24:15-21, "When you see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet stand in the holy place, understand this is the prophecy of Daniel 9:26 coming to pass, the people of the Roman prince [Titus] that will come [after My crucifixion] will overflow and destroy the city and the sanctuary as by a flood, and there will be warfare to the consummation of life" (Daniel 7:19-26). Matthew 24:15 and Mark 13:14 refer to the pennants of the Roman legions rising over the temple from the Mount of Olives, they bore the insignia of a red dragon signifying the holy place had fallen under the dominion of idolaters. So when they saw the Roman legions surveying Jerusalem from Mount Scopus the Christians fled to Pella in the Jordan valley and were saved. "Then shall be great tribulation such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be" (Matthew 24:1-3; 15-21; COD, p. 720:164).
  2. "And what shall be the sign of Your [parousia] Coming?"
    Jesus answered this question for the Church in Matthew 24:22-29. "And unless those days are shortened, there should be no flesh saved [for the translation]: but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened" [by the restoration of the apostolic faith and the revelation of the Seven Thunder Mysteries which brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7; 16:15)]. The revelation of these mysteries is bringing Christ's end-time Bride to maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.

    Israel's King and Queen: Christ & His Bride"Then [in the time of the shortening of days," which is Christ's (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming to us, His Bride, "descending from heaven with a shout, and the voice of Christ, the Archangel" (I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 10:1-4)]. "If anyone says to you, Look, here is Christ, or there He is; do not believe them. For false Christs, and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders; so as to deceive the very elect, if it were possible. Behold, I have told you in advance. If they say to you, Behold, He is in the desert; go not forth: behold, He is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning comes from the east, and flashes even to the west; so shall also the [parousia] Coming of the Son of man be. For wherever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together." Jesus was speaking of the holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the antitype of Israel's Pentecostal feast, where we are feeding right now; we call it the Capstone Age.

    Those without spiritual vision are looking for a man but He comes unseen "as a thief in the night"; those with eyes of faith see Him in the fullness of His Word for we are in His Presence. In these verses Jesus says "DO NOT LOOK FOR THE MAN, or even a man! God is Light: look for Light on the Word, the Light of revelation that shone in Jerusalem in the morning of the Gospel has circled the world and is restored in the evening time of the Gospel" (Zechariah 14:7; Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7).

    "Immediately after the tribulation of those days [of oppression by Jewry and the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church throughout the Gentile dispensation (I Thessalonians 2:14-16; Luke 11:52; Revelation 20:4)] the sun will be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light; the stars will fall from heaven and the powers of the heavens will be shaken" in the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet and the outpouring of the Seventh Vial that ends the Gentile dispensation.

    The Sign of Christ's parousia Coming to Israel is in verse 30: "And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming [erchomai] in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He shall send His angels [the two Israelite prophets of Zechariah 4; and Revelation 11] with a great sound of the [Seventh] Trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other [back to the Land of their Covenant for redemption]".

    The Mount of Olives will be overshadowed by the Pillar of Cloud at Christ's unrecognized second or parousia Coming to Israel. The mountain will cleave in two demolishing the Dome of the Rock, the "abomination that [now] desolates the holy place" (Isaiah 29:6; Zechariah 14:1-5; Revelation 16:19). This event will ignite the invasion of Israel leading to the 'hot stage' of World War III, the utter defeat of the modern State of faux Israel, and the mass exodus of non-Semitic, anti-Semitic Israeli self-styled Jews, enabling the Israelites to safely return.
  3. "And [what will be the sign] of the end of the age?
    Matthew's Gospel is addressed to Israelites; the Sixth Seal is manifesting, the Seventh Trumpet has sounded and the Seventh Vial has been poured out. An earthquake has divided the Mount of Olives, demolishing es Sakhra, the Dome of the Rock, and the twenty-first century 'Moses' and 'Elijah' have been commissioned to gather the 144,000 elect Israelites to the Land of their Covenant. These signs confirm the end of Man's day and the beginning of the Day of the Lord as in Revelation 1:10 and 4:1.

    Israel's crestMatthew 24:32-35, "Now learn a parable of the fig tree [Israel—not Jewry who display the rustling leaves of religious profession, sterile traditions of the Pharisees, and exhuberent chutzpah of vain words, not merely unfruitfulness but deceptiveness]; when his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer [and the harvest of 144,000 elect Israelites] is near [for the fig tree bears its fruit before its leaves]: you too, when you see all these things, know that the end is at the doors. Truly I say assure you, this Israelite race shall not be consumed until all these signs are fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall change but My Words will never change".

    Earlier we said the Perfect tense describes an event that has happened and will continue happening until the end when its objective is completed. Our example was Jesus' cry from the Cross, "It is finished! He has finished the transgression, made reconciliation for iniquity," and that will continue until the restitution of all things in the renewed heavens and renewed earth (Acts 3:20-26).

    Additional examples will help bring these prophecies into real time:

    Ezekiel 39:6-8, "I will send a fire on Magog [Russia] . . . So will I make My holy Name known in the midst of My people Israel . . . and the heathen will know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel. Behold, it is come, and it is done . . ."

    Revelation 6:10-11, the Fifth Seal Israelites under the blood of the Altar of Sacrifice "cried with a loud voice, How long, O Lord, holy and true, will you refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth? And they were assured of salvation at the White Throne Judgment and told that they should rest a little longer until their 144,000 elect brethren should also be martyred [in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week]."

    Revelation 10:5-6, "And the Angel [Christ] which I saw place judgment upon Rome, the beast from the sea and upon her (once) Protestant image, the united States, the beast from the earth lifted up His hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be (Gk.) 'chronos' time no longer".

    "Time is no more" for Christ's end-time Bride and the 144,000 Israelites; we are predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word by revelation of the Seven Seals or Seven Trumpet mysteries and were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary. Since Revelation 4 and 5 were fulfilled in 1963 there has been neither sacrifice or blood on the altar, so when Christ took His Title Deed to redemption the martyrs under the Fifth Seal recognized Him as their kinsman Redeemer and demanded vengeance. His descent on Mount Sunset with the little Book open confirmed the Church Ages, His mediation and redemption are over. Israel will fulfil the sixfold purpose of Daniel's Seventieth Week as martyrs and appear with the Church in the vision of Christ's parousia Coming in judgment when Armageddon ends "the world that now is" (Revelation 19:1-21).

    Revelation 12:12, "Rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea [apostate Christendom, Rome and her (once) Protestant US image); the Third Woe will commence with the 'hot stage' of World War III and end after Armageddon with earth's cleansing by nuclear fire]! For the Devil is come down to you [incarnate in Rome's pope], having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time [namely seven years]".

    Revelation 15:8, "And the [heavenly] temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from His power; and no man was able to enter into the temple till the seven plagues of the seven angels are fulfilled." Brother Branham will pour out the Seventh vial of jealousy on the non-elect church at the close of the Christian dispensation to distinguish the foolish virgins from the unbelievers and make-believers (Revelation 16:17). Then the resurrection and glorification of the sleeping Church Age saints and the manifestation of the Sons of God "who are alive and remain" will commence.

    Revelation 16:17, "And [William Branham] the seventh angel poured out his Vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne breaking the "Silence in heaven" saying, It is done," as the Seventh Vial of God's wrath pours out upon the apostate world church system.

    Revelation 21:6-7, "The seventh angel, William Branham, told John, It is done. [The perfect tense of Jesus' declaration, "It is finished," continues "to be finished" to the end of the age, through the millennium to the general resurrection and white throne judgment, until sin, sinners, history and anything that is an affront to God is cast into the Lake of fire where the pope and Satan are (Revelation 20:10). Then John (representing Christ's end-time Bride) sees New Jerusalem, Christ's Bride of all Ages "prepared as a bride adorned for her husband" descending from God out of heaven to a fifteen hundred mile high Mount Zion on the renewed earth. This will be "the restitution of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began" (Acts 3:20-26). "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of Life freely. He who overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be My son".

    This will be the eighth day and eternity, the end that has no end.
Having answered these questions, Jesus prophesied the world conditions "we who are alive and remain" have endured over the past fifty-four years of the rapture. This English noun (not found in the Bible) derives from the Latin verb 'rapio' which literally means "I catch up" "or "I snatch." The Greek verb is 'harpazo.' Jesus cites the days of Noah prior to the consummation by water as the type foreshadowing societal conditions preceding the consummation by nuclear fire (Malachi 4:1-3; Matthew 3:11-12; II Thessalonians 1:3-10; II Peter 3:1-10; Revelation 19:17-21).

Matthew 24:37-39, The [parousia] Coming of the Son of man found a prosperous godless civilization of advanced scientific and engineering prowess: sensual, morally and criminally corrupt and violent, its besetting sin is miscegenation as it was in the days of Noah. Life continued unrepentant as usual until the day that Noah entered the ark, and knew not until the flood came and took them all away; as it will be in the [parousia] Coming of the Son of man (Revelation 3:15-20).

Noah preached for a hundred and twenty years, and continued preaching to those who could no longer be saved after God shut the ark. Much of our ministry is to souls that are in prison now, but here and there one is caught up into the revelation by the "shout" of the Prophet's Message, and the other is left behind. The world does not understand that the Lord has come and He is present now.

I Corinthians 15:20-23, "Now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of the Old Testament saints that slept. For since by man came death, by Man came also the resurrection of the dead (Matthew 27:50-53). For as in Adam all die, so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in according to his Church Age: Christ the first fruits; afterward they that are Christ's at His [parousia] Coming [in the first resurrection after the close of the Christian dispensation]" (I Corinthians 15:50-57).

I Thessalonians 4:14-15, "For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the Word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the [parousia] Coming of the Lord shall not precede those who have fallen asleep".

II Thessalonians 2:1-9, "Now we ask you, brethren, regarding the [parousia] Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together unto Him [by the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16], that you do not allow yourselves to be upset by the rumour that the Day of the Lord has already begun".

Paul was refuting this ridiculous claim. The Day of the Lord will be "the day of vengeance of our God" proclaimed by Brother Branham's Message (Isaiah 61:2b; I Thessalonians 1:10; 5:9-10), and the day of Satan's [parousia] coming (II Thessalonians 2:9) to incarnate the pope after the resurrection and translation of Christ's Bride of all Ages. Not until then will that Wicked one be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and with the (Gk.) 'epiphenaea' brightness of His [parousia] Coming: even him [the pope], whose [parousia] coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders . . .

James 5:7-8, "Be patient therefore, brethren, until the [parousia] Coming of the Lord. Behold, the farmer waits paitiently for the precious produce of the soil, until it receives the early and latter rains. You too be patient; strengthen your hearts: for the [parousia] Coming of the Lord draws near is here".

II Peter 1:16 conveys the same admonition, "We have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known to you the power and [parousia] Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty [on Mount Transfiguration]" (Matthew 17:1-8).

II Peter 3:4, 9-12 prophesies: "In the last days scoffers will come, walking after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of His [parousia] Coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation . . . The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the Day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in all holy conversation and godliness, looking for and hastening to the [parousia] Coming of the Day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?"

I John 2:28, "And now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears (Gk.) 'phaneroo,' we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His [parousia] Coming". nl985.htm

The Cupola

Bible Believers' Newsletter 985

"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
ISSN 1442-8660
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.

Android PhoneWe have some very interesting news items this week. The City of London, its UK and Israeli colonies are determined to provoke Iran, China, North Korea and Russia to war, and the alien 'war party' has president Trump trapped. As explained in Newsletter 976, North Korea was created by Jew-controlled USA after WWII as a wedge between China and Russia to trigger war at the opportune hour. Like Iran, North Korea wishes to be treated with respect but needs a deterrent against US aggression. Propaganda suggesting North Korea might strike the US mainland exposes the low IQ of those who watch TV. What would they do next? North Korea's goal is normalization of US-North Korea diplomacy through a peace treaty, a guarantee of its sovereignty and perhaps reunion with the South. Russia, China and Iran all desire peace, but the 'hidden hand' seeks global hegemony and the united States has a death wish.

In our main article "The Cupola" Brother Branham said, "the revival is just about over. You remember as THUS SAITH THE LORD, I said, America made her final decision in 1946. Watch, since then. She's gone, and there's nothing left but judgment and chaos. Look what's happened in that much time. Just watch it, how it's going to keep faster and faster. We're at the end. We're living in the shadows of His coming. "There'll be signs in the heavens above and in the earth, men's hearts failing, fear, perplexed of times, distress between the nations." How the people will "be heady, high-minded," how "the daughters of Zion, the church will walk haughty, high-minded, with the way she'd walk, and mince and twist as she went." Where are we at? We're with Belteshazzar's big rock-and-roll party. And the church has been caught in the tide through television, through radio, through Hollywood. There we are . . . Real Christian women bobbing off their hair, wearing make-up on their faces, dressed in them little old dirty clothes, because reprobate people has told them there's no harm in it".

God wrote three Bibles, the Gospel in the Stars, the Great Pyramid, and the Bible in paper and ink, each declaring the same prophecies and histories showing us precisely where we stand in relation to His plan, and in time. The Prophet said, you will know the year and the month.

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.

Washington pushes harder against Russia

July 31, 2017 — The Russian government, like Chamberlain's, has not responded to provocations far more dangerous than Chamberlain faced, because, like Chamberlain, the Russian government prefers peace to war. The question is whether the Russian government is avoiding or encouraging war by its non-response to illegal sanctions and propagandistic accusations and demonizations. Russia has even allowed Washington to put ABM bases on its borders with Poland and Romania. This is like the US permitting Russia to put missile bases in Cuba.

Russia is disadvantaged because, unlike the United States, Russia is an open society, not a police state like the US where dissent is controlled and suppressed. The Russian government is handicapped by its decision to permit foreign ownership of some of its media. It is disadvantaged by its decision to accept hundreds of American and European financed NGOs that organize protests and constantly level false charges at the Russian government. The Russian government permits this because it mistakenly believes Washington and its vassals will see Russia as a tolerant democracy and welcome it into the Western Family of Nations.

Russia is also disadvantaged by its educated upper class, professors and businessmen who are Western oriented. The professors want to be invited to conferences at Harvard University. The businessmen want to be integrated into the Western business community. These people are known as "Atlanticist Integrationists." They believe Russia's future depends on acceptance by the West and are willing to sell out Russia in order to gain this acceptance. Even some of Russia's youth think everything is great in America where the streets are paved with gold, and some of the Russian media take their cue from the Western presstitutes.

It is a difficult situation for the Russian government. The Russians mistakenly believed that the demise of the Soviet Union made us all friends. It seems only Gorbachev understands that the Soviet collapse removed all constraint on Washington's hegemonic behaviour . . .

Comment: Under HR 3364, the "Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act," or edict, the EU (and indeed all) nations that ignore trade sanctions against Russia, North Korea and Iran will lose all assets in the US, be refused entry to international banks and forbidden to pursue business activities outside EU. But Daniel 9:26 and Revelation 17:11-16 inform us that Rome and the Black Nobility will gain the upper hand over the US which will come under Judaeo-Roman and Jewish bankster suzerainty and serve as Rome's bag man and enforcer, the (once) Protestant image unto the beast.

This will divide the East from the West after the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week as Daniel and Jesus prophesied. I see the Eastern nations forsaking the SWIFT money transfer system for the BRICS alternative. The Rouble and Yuan have strong gold backing, the US dollar is backed by Chutzpah, gold stolen from the Ukraine and Libya (US$150bn) and forced payment for oil in US dollars that many nations bypass, and the oil price is falling. Vatican City State will reinvigorate the US and Western European states when it refinances the US dollar with gold.

Churchill the Movie

William Branham
June 10, 2017 — Churchill certainly acted on occasion as a "doddering fool" as portrayed in the new movie Churchill, reviewed by Chris Knight (NP June 9, 2017). However, to dismiss his disastrous seeming ineptitude as merely drunken stupidity, hardly does him credit. The Great Man was arguably the most profoundly evil war criminal of all time. He was also probably the greatest con-artist ever, spellbinding the media and whole otherwise-sane populations into thinking WWII was a splendid idea, even though the catastrophic experience of WWI was still within recent living memory.

In 1939, Churchill and his "War Party" campaigned for war against Germany in the full knowledge that the real threat to Western Civilization was Bolshevist Russia, not our cultured Christian German kinfolk who had done nothing to harm us. Clear confirmation of his perfidy emerged when Germany and Russia invaded Poland and Britain declared war only on Germany when the occasion called for neutrality and eventually a NATO-style alliance to overthrow the cruel Soviet dictatorship and liberate its terrorized subjects.

Britain had a second chance to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat in 1940 when Hitler offered a munificent peace treaty that would have saved the British Empire and millions of lives, but Churchill, inflamed by hatred imparted by his secret, vengeful Zionist paymasters, rejected the offers and doomed Britain, and Western Civilization to inevitable collapse. For this calamitous, contrived blunder and his many other fatal decisions, "that Bastard Churchill", as he was known to colleagues who understood him, does not deserve enshrinement in movies as a statesman, no matter how inept, but rather should be condemned in perpetuity as an arch-traitor and war monger supreme, responsible for incalculable loss of life and loss of freedom, especially freedom of speech, by survivors and their descendants.

Churchill's image as a competent and fearless leader is a myth that can be demolished easily by any objective, intrepid researcher. The myth originated when Churchill was sent to South Africa as a young correspondent to cover the Boer War. To create a story, he persuaded a gullible local British Commander to send an armoured train into Boer territory and to take him along. The Boers readily captured the train, taking the troops and Churchill prisoner. Churchill, left unguarded, easily "escaped", and was given undeserved acclaim, while the British Commander was reprimanded for his folly.

The notoriety helped Churchill win a seat in Parliament and eventually appointment as First Lord of the Admiralty, He soon revealed his bloated ego and incompetence in the Dardanelles Campaign when thousands of Australians and New Zealanders were mindlessly sacrificed in a hopeless assault (a lethal stupidity Churchill repeated when he sent Canadian soldiers to be slaughtered on the impassable beach-front at Dieppe).

Adolf HitlerIn the mid-'thirties, the discredited warmonger, after accepting large payments from Jewish-American millionaires to stave off his impending bankruptcy, formed a group known as the "War Party" that strongly urged Britain to make war on Germany. After war was declared and the British Army quickly defeated, Britain was left defenceless, but spared by the pro-British Hitler who allowed the 300,000 man British Army to leave France unhindered. and offered Britain an honourable peace that would have preserved the Empire intact, with German military protection if required. Although Hitler's magnanimity made possible the "miracle of Dunkirk", Churchill, contemptuously and contemptibly, rejected the peace offer, sealing the fate of hundreds of millions, dooming Western Christian civilization and sacrificing his own country, simply to satisfy his quest for Supreme War Lord status and to satisfy his Shylockian Zionist paymasters.

As for hero status, he was a coward, cynically trashing the lives of trusting subjects, military and civilian, while ensuring his own safety (during the Blitz, Churchill would leave London when Intelligence informed him of an impending Luftwaffe attack, then return to bomb sites as soon as the raid ended for photo-ops, giving the impression he had shared the danger).

To satisfy his blood-lust and ensure, before the war's end, his place as the most indefatigably sadistic war criminal of WWII, he ordered the fire-bombing of the undefended City of Dresden, knowing it was packed with women and children fleeing the rapacious Red Army and that most would be burned alive in the holocaust. (W/C "Giff" Gifford of St. John, NB, who unwittingly led an RCAF Squadron in the diabolical attack said, upon learning of the purpose and result of the raid (as told to the Senate CBC "Valour & Horror" enquiry) that he "felt remorse every day" for the rest of his life for the murder of the innocents and mindless obliteration of Europe's most beautiful architectural treasures).

Churchill was my childhood hero for whom I was—literally, by enlisting in Air Crew—prepared to die. I now see him for what he was; a drunken, unscrupulous, corrupt, cynical, racist, immoral, dishonest, self-serving arch-traitor. Ironically, it was his nation's would-be saviour, the much reviled Adolf Hitler, whom I was taught to hate, and who graciously offered an optimum solution which would have handed Britain not only a real victory but also would have liberated Stalin's terrified subjects. A genuine statesman, he would have made possible a permanent Pax Germanicus-Britannicus-Americanus that would have freed the Western Democracies from rule by a cunning, parasitical, hostile, powerful Enemy Within (against whom Hitler repeatedly warned) who were (and are) a far greater threat to our freedom than ever was posed by our resurgent, friendly, compatible, cultured German kin.

Churchill became an icon by combining outrageous chutzpah with cunning, deception, duplicity and unmatched eloquence but as a leader was hardly more competent than Steven Harper, and couldn't hold a candle to Mackenzie King, or Hitler, for that matter. Most young Canadians of my era fell for his oratory, and many paid with their lives.

Had justice prevailed, Churchill would have been charged, convicted and hanged as the greatest war criminal of WWII, if not of all time. By declaring war, then prolonging the war instead of accepting Hitler's generous offer of an honourable peace in 1940, he caused 150 million unnecessary casualties, incalculable suffering, destroyed Britain, the country he cynically pretended to save, eliminated Christian Germany as a bulwark against the genocidal Soviet dictatorship, betrayed Poland into Stalin's clutches and, calamitously, as it turned out, abandoned innocent, defenceless Palestinians to the tender mercies of sadistic, predatory Zionists.

ZionChurchill set the stage for the Cold War, Middle East wars, Third World chaos, ethnic conflict, refugee invasions and subversion of the Western Christian democracies, leaving them under hostile Jewish hegemony—a much more deadly threat to their race, traditions, property, freedom and ultimate survival than the invented threat posed by Hitler's Germany. Had it not been for Churchill's diabolical treachery, which cannot be excused by mere bouts of drunken megalomania, the world today would be, in every respect, a far better and safer place.

The Squeeze is On

July 31, 2017 — 'The three decades immediately following WWII generated genuine economic growth through productive activity: manufacturing, agriculture etc. Wages and savings grew.

'Whereas the economic "growth" of the past 30-plus years has largely been due to the private sector spending money they had not yet earned. The global dominance of the financial sector . . . is a direct result of the Western world's 30-year credit-dependent habit. Coming down from this "credit high" is the last thing financial institutions, central banks and governments want. These institutions don't mind seeing a slight temporary downturn, however, the prospect of a sustained and lasting change in society's attitude towards debt is abhorrent to them.

'The whole system (tax revenues, welfare promises, health funding, corporate profitability, share prices, property values, retirement incomes, award wages, etc.) has been built on the tenet of people continuing to spend more than they earn. The financial structures supporting Western society have been developed from 30 years of conditioning . . . What happens if these "bedrock" foundations morph into deflationary quicksand?'

It's taken longer than I thought—due to the relentless, unprecedented and coordinated stimulus efforts—for the squeeze to work its way into mainstream consciousness. But it's now making regular headlines . . . The absence of inflation doesn't mean that all household costs are falling. Some, like power costs and health insurance, are rising far faster than the CPI . . . wages growth is much harder to come by . . . Discretionary spending—and that includes the ability to take on more debt—is under pressure . . .

The last thing the banking system wants is for people to live within their means. The banks . . . need—debt slaves. The interconnectivity created by globalisation means that what happens in one corner of the world eventually ripples through to our island nation . . . Excessive and aggressive use of monetary steroids can do wonders in the short term for an economy, making it appear bigger and stronger than it really is. When, not if, China eases up on the 'debt juice', the deflationary effects will not just ripple—they'll flood into all corners of the world.

Central banks reduce interest rates to make debt cheaper (hoping to rekindle the debt-dependent economic growth model), but lower rates also reduce the income of conservative retirees . . . Income-constrained and debt-burdened consumers . . . We are caught in a vicious bind of our own making . . . Suppliers, retailers and consumers are . . . cannibalising each other. The world has too much debt, too much capacity, too many entitlements . . . Reality is going to hit—and hit hard. The squeeze is on. Full story: Vern Gowdie

Religion Declining, Secularism Surging

May 13, 2017 — An ongoing spate of recent studies—looking at various countries around the world—all show the same thing: religion is in decline. From Scandinavia to South America, and from Vancouver to Seoul, the world is experiencing an unprecedented wave of secularization. Indeed, as a recent National Geographic report confirms, the world's newest religion is: No Religion . . .

* For the first time in British history, there are now more atheists and agnostics than believers in God. And church attendance rates in the UK are at an all-time low, with less than 2% of British men and women attending church on any given Sunday . . .

* Nearly 70% of the Dutch are not affiliated with any religion, and approximately 700 Protestant churches and over 1,000 Catholic churches are expected to close within the next few years throughout the Netherlands, due to low attendance.

* According to a recent Eurobarometer Poll, 19% of Spaniards, 24% of Danes, 26% of Slovenians, 27% of Germans and Belgians, 34% of Swedes, and 40% of the French, claim to not believe in "any sort of spirit, God, or life-force."

* In Australia, 15% of the population said they had no religion in 2001, and it is up to at least 22% today . . . Full story: huffingtonpost.com


The Cupola

Were we looking over the banister of heaven with eyes of Supernatural seeing when time and creation began we would have witnessed the fullness and finality of God's eternal thoughts, the Attributes of what He is, expressed as the Logos—a Greek word meaning thought in speech. Ezekiel 1:28 described this amber-coloured Pillar of Fire as the "the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord": God is Light.

The natural types the Spiritual: "in the beginning" the Logos created an immense blazing sun soaring through the vacuum of space with no determined course, disgorging segments of itself to give birth to stars and planets. Over perhaps billions of years in which "the earth was a chaotic wasteland" they established an interdependent balance of predetermined orbits we know as "the heavens and the earth . . . the world that then was".

God was creating His first Bible we call the Zodiac. Sanchuniathon and other ancient historians inform us the seven vowels in the earliest alphabet were "so arranged as to express the places of the seven visible planets in the Zodiac" at the time when the alphabet was completed. The twenty-five letters and the twelve zodiac signs were superimposed, with the vowels unevenly spaced to represent the planetary positions at that time. Thus the alphabet records "an exact notation of the actual condition of the heavens at an ascertainable date, which can occur but once in many thousands of years, and that date is the seventh of September, 3447BC" (Joseph Seiss, Gospel in the Stars p. 23, 174).

Even if he has miscalculated by a day or two, a finished astronomical science as well as writing were already completely developed in Adam's lifetime and these astronomical facts and chronologies were preserved in the Great Pyramid.

Since Mary's conception by the Word of the Angel, when Earth was in Virgo, the first sign of the zodiac, Earth's position in space has moved about 30 degrees, or one full sign so that Leo, the last sign in the zodiac will take Virgo's position when the Zodiac has travelled its full cycle. This prophecy is recorded in the Sphinx that stands before the Great Pyramid in which the Body of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Church, is united with the Head of the Virgin, in the catching-away of Christ's Bride, the Church.

God's Second BibleThe word sphinx derives from the Greek "sphiggo" which means "to bind closely together" and this signifies to us Christians the cycle began with Jesus' conception by the eternal Word and it ends by taking the Offspring of that Word back into eternity with Him (Isaiah 53:10; I Thessalonians 4:17).

God's second Bible the Great Pyramid tells the same story as the Zodiac. It represents New Jerusalem, Jesus Christ and His Bride of all Ages, our 144,000 elect Israelite attendants and the Old Testament saints. Silent geometry reveals a remarkable witness. It has been called "the Bible in stone" because its passageways and chambers reveal geometrically, in line and symbol, the profound spiritual truths of the plan of redemption.

One enters the Great Pyramid at the Descending Passage which has an elevation of 26° 18' 9.7", the elevation of the Pole Star, Alpha Draconis, the chief star in the Constellation of the Dragon or Great Serpent at that latitude in 2170BC around the time of the Flood.

Prophetic passages in Great PyramidThe Great Pyramid speaks of "the heavens and the Earth which are now." A perfect prophecy in stone whose passageways are aligned with the heavens today.

When earth had its water baptism the Great Flood only washed away past sin. Sinful Ham was in the ark with the remnant, so as man entered the post-diluvium world symbolized by the pyramid he was under the Dragon star sign and dominion of Satan on the Descending Passage and bound for the Pit. However a quarter of the distance down the Descending Passage we meet an Ascending Passage, indicating a separation from sin and representing God's dealings with Israel in the Exodus and under the Law until Calvary.

The elevation of this narrow upward passageway is 26° 18' 9.7". The ceiling is so low one must stoop indicating the Law was based upon works of obedience that no man could satisfy. Corbeled walls of Grand GalleryThe Grand Gallery continues upward at the same angle, representing Pentecost and the Seven Church Ages. Its corbelled walls are formed by seven successive overhanging courses of masonry at an elevation of 26° 18' 9.7" so although the way is strait and narrow, it is no longer necessary to stoop.

This is a picture of the Grand Gallery looking back down the ascending passage from the Great Step at the top of the climb. Soon after the commencement of the Grand Gallery, we encounter the mouth of an open well. The Well Shaft follows a serpentine passage to the Pit or prison house of the lost, opening part way down into an empty cavern that may represent the dimension called Paradise where the Old Testament saints awaited their Kinsman Redeemer. Its covering stone is gone as if violently blown-out from beneath when Paradise emptied-out after His resurrection. Nowadays, the traffic is downward with no return. "Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man drawback, my soul shall have no pleasure in him" (Hebrews 10:38). Those who commence the journey and draw back in unbelief commit the unforgivable sin.

God wrote a third Bible, on paper that is the Scriptures we study today; it teaches exactly the same prophecies and doctrines as its forerunners and is often referred to as "the Word" or Logos. Like the Zodiac and the Great Pyramid it tells the story of God changing His form or unfolding Himself from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts through faith in His Word to the flesh of His glorified Family. This is a NEW CREATION. Through Adam man was of the old order or creation, now in union with Christ Who is the last Adam, he has become the NEW CREATION of God. Jesus Christ is the Beginner and Author of this creation, and "we are His workmanship created in union with Christ Jesus unto good works" (Ephesians 2:10) as "epistles written" of "the present Truth . . . read and known of all men" by His Life on display (Acts 4:13).

Ephesians 4:23-24, "Be renewed in the Spirit of your mind and put on the new self which in the likeness of God is created in righteousness and true holiness." This New Creation is not the old creation made over or it could not be called a new creation. This is exactly what it says it is, "NEW CREATION" born Supernaturally of the spoken Word for the hour.

This is ANOTHER CREATION. This has to do with the Church. This is a special designation of Himself. He is the CREATOR of that Church. The heavenly Bridegroom created His Own Bride. As the Spirit of God, He came down and created in the virgin Mary the cells from which His body was born. I want to repeat that. He created the very cells in the womb of Mary for that body. It was not enough for the Holy Spirit to simply give life to a human ovum supplied by Mary. That would have been sinful mankind producing a body. That would not have produced the "Last Adam." Of Him it was said "Lo a body have You (Father) prepared for Me" (Hebrews 10:5). God (not Mary) provided that body. Mary was the human incubator and she carried that Holy Child and brought Him to birth. It was a God-man. He was the Son of God. He was of the NEW creation. Man and God met and joined; He was the first of this new race. He is the head of this new race.

Colossians 1:18, "And He is he Head of the body, the Church: Who is the beginning, the first-born from the dead; that in all things He might have the pre-eminence".

II Corinthians 5:17, "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a NEW CREATION, old things have passed away, behold all things are become new" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 336:4).

Jesus Christ is the manifestation of Logos, the One Person of God manifest in virgin-born flesh. John 1:1-3, 14, "In the beginning was the Logos, and the Logos was with God [as His eternal thoughts], and the Logos was God ["for as a man thinks in His heart, so it He" (Proverbs 23:7)]. The same was in the beginning with God. Through Him everything came into being and without Him nothing that exists came into being . . . And the Logos was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth".

There is an unusual feature which Brother Branham mentions concerning the Great Pyramid. "These people who died in here are depending and waiting on us. So this church has got to come to perfection in order to bring the resurrection, and they're souls under the altar, waiting for this church to come to its perfection. But when Christ does come, and this church, you see, is coming smaller in the minority. (It's a whole lot sharper than that, but just as I write that cross there, see?), It's come to a needle point until the church, in the minority, has got to get into the place until it's the same kind of a ministry that this left."

Because when this Headstone comes back, it's got a pocket-like here where it's going to sit there on a regular pyramid. It just isn't a cap that sits across the top: it's a little flange. And it's got to sit there because it sheds the water. And when it comes, this church has got to be honed. All the rest of these stones in the Pyramid are laying so perfectly "till you can't run a razor blade between them, weighing tons laying there. How they got them up, they don't know, but they were built. And up here, when the Pyramid cap does come, the Pyramid itself, the Body of Christ will have to be honed, not only just some creed, or doctrine, or something we've come through. It will have to be so perfectly like Christ 'till when He comes, He and that ministry will fit right smack together. Then will come the rapture and the going Home" (The Stature of a Perfect Man, p. 49:367-371).

Brother Branham compares his ministry to a "CUPOLA"; a neck on the bottom of the capstone which joins the headstone to the top of the Pyramid. The lower part were the Overcomers of the seven church ages. They only had a partial Word. Then he quotes Hebrews 11:40, "Without us they cannot be perfected." He emphatically states that "They must have this ministry." There was a resurrection and they too, are gathered around the descended body-Word of the Son of Man. "Where the carcass is the eagles will be gathered" (Matthew 24:28; COD, p. 1021:118-120).

"The Son of God has come into this remnant to pull a certain people for the Cap-Stone in order to bring back the Son of God (the full revealing Spirit) to complete the thing for the coming of the Lord Jesus:" The Son of Man Body-Word revealed" (Elijah and the Meal Offering, p. 21:129).

"In the Church Ages the full church (Christ) was the Cornerstone (foundation) the Cap never came, because it was the Headstone." The top (Standing in the Gap, p. 19:77).

The capstone is a small pyramid, too. We are at the plane, the fiftieth level, the raptured high-place, plane of the Headstone.

Brother Branham relates what took place when the headstone appeared on Sunset Mountain "I could see those Angels, those shaped-back wings travelling 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, (Brother Branham illustrates by placing his arms behind his back as though they were wings. I saw him do this, said Brother Ungren), 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 have 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 to do?" And the vision left me. For almost an hour I couldn't feel:"

King's Chamber"Go into the Prophet's Chamber"; (the Ante-Room before entering THE KING'S CHAMBER), "and watch the seven steps" (in the GRAND GALLERY), "where the guard (prophet) met the challenge to bring the comer into the presence of the King in the Seventh Step" (The Feast of the Trumpets, p. 15:112). The GREAT STEP represented the RAPTURE at the end of the Seventh Church Age. The top of this step is on the 50th course of masonry, which represents the jubilant JUBILEE. This step is three feet high. In one's going up THE GRAND GALLERY, each inch represents a year. At the end we come to this Great Step. This was the year 1909, the year of Brother Branham's birth and years later the Lord revealed to him His Message. The Great Step is the "little introduction plank" Brother Branham mentions (God's only Provided Place of Worship, p. 33:217).

The Great Step starts in 1909 at point 'A'; rises to 1946 at point 'B.' Remember the Jewish people was declared a nation [at the UNSCOP Committee at Lake Success] on April, May [(UN docs. A/C.I/P.V.46-57 (May 6-13)] the sixth, on 1946, and the Angel of the Lord appeared to me on May 7, 1946 at Green's Mill, Indiana . . . come into the room where I was at, a Man walking. He didn't have wings; He was just a big man, had a white garment down to His feet. And He said that I was born to pray for sick people. And I told Him I was uneducated, illiterate, and I wasn't able to go. He said I'd be praying for kings and monarchs, and Message around the world, a Message that would bring the second Coming of Christ was near . . . THUS SAITH THE LORD, I said, America made her final decision in 1946. Watch, since then. She's gone, and there's nothing left but judgment and chaos (The Handwriting on the Wall, #58-0309). BB CaveThe oncomer of the Church Ages is led by the prophet into the Prophet's Chamber at point 'C,' around 1977 (1909 +68). The distance of 68" under the Great Step is included twice: it is included in the 1,881" of the total length of the Grand Gallery and it is included in the Great Step. As our Brother Morris Ungren explained, I personally talked with him about this. Thirty-six inches up the face of the Great Step is the plane of the second advent (Lat.) 'adventus,' meaning coming, arrival, or appearance. This was several months before his commission by the Angel in the cave at 14-mile road. It is on this step that a guard meets the oncomer of the Church Ages. This guard helps the person up the three foot step to the fiftieth course level. This guard would have to represent the end time eagle-prophet who has the Rapture Message to lift a believer up to the King's level.

Brother Branham speaks about the end-time eagle-prophet in his Message, The Future Home of the Heavenly Bridegooom and the Earthly Bride: "There is another measure, the pyramid, that proves it. This, being this a way, would answer exactly Enoch's sign in Egypt, the Pyramid. Would it? Enoch, before the antediluvian destruction, when justification was coming in, he brought forth a sign, and in this Pyramid is seven steps going to the King's Chamber. Watch on the Seventh Step, if you ever studied the dimensions of the Pyramid, what comes out to take the oncomer, to introduce to the King. Watch whose station that is standing there, and you'll see the day you're living, in the Pyramid" (p. 44:371-373; Isaiah 19:19-20).

On this 50th course level we come to the Prophet's Chamber. To enter this closet (the Ante-Chamber) one must stoop down. Inside is a Granite Leaf. On its face is a projected figure of an inch which is called "THE BOSS"; because it is the key to the lineal measurement of the galleries in the Pyramid of one inch to the year. Actually, it is the seventh SEAL as the Lord revealed it to me. It is as illustrated below. The stone material is all amber-coloured granite, which represents the Pillar of Fire.

In Egyptian hieroglyphics I found, from "The Book of the Dead," the meanings in this unusual figure they called the "Boss".
Drawing of There is a halo or nimbus over the top.
A full loaf of bread is represented, meaning a complete revelation (Leviticus 23:16-21; Romans 8:19).
The hill of sunrise, a new day had dawned.
Showing the alpha and Omega in The BossThe Alpha and Omega symbols incorporated in the figure.
The appearing of the glory of God.
And a rainbow.
It also projects out one inch from the Granite Leaf and is offset from the center by one inch representing the displacement factor. This factor is present in order to show there is an imperfection. The cross should never have been, had Satan not rebelled bringing about the fall of himself and mankind.

How will believers know Christ is here "unless they are constantly in the Word to know what He is? The W_O_R_D made flesh is the Light of the Age when you see It" (The Feast of the Trumpets, p. 15:113-115).

Mason WashingtonDaniel said, "the last world power was in the feet. That was iron and clay. See the iron is the Roman Empire. But now it is no longer solid iron. Clay is mixed in it. Yet it is there and running world affairs in both the democratic nations and the more despotic ones. The Romish church is in every nation. It is mixed up in it all."

From 603BC to the present, history has vindicated Nebuchadnezzar's prophetic dream and the interpretation God revealed through His prophet Daniel. Brother Branham said: Khruschev shoe UN"Let me give you a little something on the iron and clay. Remember when Khrushchev beat his shoe on the desk at the UN? Well, there were five eastern nations there and five western. Khrushchev spoke for the East, and Eisenhower for the West. In Russian, Khrushchev is clay and Eisenhower means iron. The two main leaders of the world [both Jews], the two big toes of the feet of iron and clay, were side by side. We are in the end of it all" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 237:1-2; Daniel 2:40-45). British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan was making a speech in the UN in 1960 when Soviet leader Khrushchev took off his shoe and banged it to on the desk. "We will bury you . . . We do not have to invade the United States; we will destroy you from within."

Macmillan merely waved his hand and said, "Later, my man, later." Like Matthew 27:25 this was prophetic, for God has raised up Judaeo-Communism to destroy the false church as He raised Nebuchadnezzar to chastise Judah. Now after fifty-seven years the Jewish-ruled united States is provoking Russia, China, Iran and North Korea to "throw the first stone" in World War III as Jewish traitor F.D. Roosevelt forced Japan into World War II. In this war the US mainland will be invaded and briefly occupied. In the peace she will betray Russia as she has twice betrayed Germany.

The Prophet said, "There's your iron and clay [that] will not mix. And he pulled off his shoe and beat the stand with it and everything else. It won't mix. But it's in the days of these empires[—the USA and Russia] that the Stone, that was hewed out of the mountain without hands, smote the image in the feet" (Seventy Weeks of Daniel, p. 115:126). The end of the Gentile dispensation is at hand.

Brother Branham stood in the breach between the Capstone and the Seals calling Christ's end-time Bride out of Babylon into the unity of the faith by the "Shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 which restores us to the faith once delivered unto Paul and the apostles (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11) and "finishes the mystery of God" (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:1-7) which was sealed by the seven unwritten thunders of Revelation 8:1 so that like Jesus' companions on the way to Emmaus, the eyes of the Church Age saints were "holden" and unable to see that the trinity is a pagan myth, water baptism is not sprinkling and pouring in three Titles, the original sin was not eating an apple, hell is not eternal, and so-on.

Throughout the Church Ages the Word of God broke off disbelieving and unfruitful branches from the Vine, chastised and disciplined the Body with a view to correction. Yes, God "winked" at their ignorance but received nothing less than "the present Truth." Through five hundred years of the Reformation of the Roman Catholic system of false Worship the Lord demanded more perfect faith. Now Christ is building the Cupola or Capstone from "lively stones" shaped and dressed by the perfect interpretation of the Bible delivered through the ministry of Brother Branham, the "neck" of the Capstone, the fullness of the Word that positions and fastens us to the Body of PART-Word saints. The Capstone Bride perfects, finishes, completes and consecrates the Body such that when the seventh angel pours out his Vial a great Voice from the Throne will say, "It is done" (Revelation 16:17; 15:8). nl985.htm
