Bible Believers' Newsletter 904
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it's great to have you with us in 2016.
In Newsletter 903 we twice mentioned a "fortieth" jubilee. This should have been the "thirtieth" jubilee. Please make this correction.
This week's news exposes the corruption of the apostate (once) Christian world led by the incurable United States of America. Sin must be punished and as the Lord God raised up Nebuchadnezzar to destroy apostate Israel, He has allowed Judaeo-communist Russia to araise in order to annihilate Vatican City State, and the United States thereafter.
Our main article proves by Scripture and the end-time Message "The Day of Redemption is over," and as Jesus foretold, the churches know it not and will preach their false salvation messages through the tribulation to souls in prison now.
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.
Historic Vatican Accord with Palestine takes Effect
Vatican City, January 2, 2016 The Vatican's first accord with the Palestiniansan agreement that Israel has attacked as counter-productive to the Middle East peace processhas come into force, the Holy See announced Saturday. The accord was signed in June; just over two years after the Roman Catholic Church recognised the Palestinian territories as a sovereign state in February 2013 . . .
The Church has had diplomatic relations with Israel since 1993 but has yet to conclude an agreement on Christian rights there. Negotiations on the subject have been running since 1999 but have repeatedly run into deadlock over the status of Jerusalem. Full story: yahoo.com
Comment: This is laying the groundwork for Daniel 9:26-27, "The prince from Rome will confirm a covenant with Israel for one week: and in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation [that has been restored in Israel's third temple] to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate".
State Dept's Silence Deafening after US Citizens in Israeli Settler Violence
January 6, 2016 In July 2015, two Jewish settlers threw a Molotov cocktail into a Palestinian home . . . The building was fully engulfed by the time the parents awoke. They struggled desperately to get their boys out of the house. The mother swept up a blanket she thought contained her 18 month-old baby . . . to her horror . . . baby remained inside . . . Only their four year-old son survived . . . he had burns over 60% of his body . . . the hospital forwarded the medical bills for treatment to the Palestinian Authority. Imagine: Israelis wipe out a family and Palestine has to foot the bill.
After the carnage was over, observers waited for the results of the investigation . . . and waited, and waited . . . Last month, two prominent settler families with violent pasts celebrated the marriage of their children . . . Hundreds of guests danced boisterously with assault rifles, Molotov cocktails, and knives held high in the air (it's a common ritual at such weddings, and called the "Knife Dance"). They enlarged a photo of the Dawabsheh baby who died in the fire, and were seen on video stabbing it with a knife . . . Full story: youtu.be mintpressnews.com
Venezuela passes Law banning GMOs, by Popular Demand
January 1, 2016 The National Assembly of Venezuela, in its final session before a neoliberal dominated opposition takes the helm of legislative power on January 5, passed one of the most progressive seed laws in the world on December 23, 2015; it was promptly signed into law by President Nicolas Maduro. On December 29, during his television show, "In Contact with Maduro, number 52," Maduro said that the new seed law provides the conditions to produce food "under an agro-ecological model that respects the pacha mama (mother earth) and the right of our children to grow up healthy, eating healthy." The law is a victory for the international movements for agroecology and food sovereignty because it bans transgenic (GMO) seed while protecting local seed from privatization. The law is also a product of direct participatory democracythe people as legislatorin Venezuela, because it was hammered out through a deliberative partnership between members of the country's National Assembly and a broad-based grassroots coalition of eco-socialist, peasant, and agroecological oriented organizations and institutions. . .

US threatens New Sanctions on Iran
January 4, 2016 The Iranian regime has reacted angrily to threats by the Obama administration last week to impose new sanctions targeting individuals and companies connected to its ballistic missile program . . . A Russian ship left Iran last Monday carrying virtually all country's stockpile of low-enriched uranium and thus greatly lengthening the time that would be needed to manufacture enough highly enriched uranium to build a nuclear weapon. Tehran has repeatedly denied that it has any plans to build a nuclear weapon . . .
Tehran had already expressed its opposition to a new US "anti-terror" law prohibiting citizens from 38 countries, mainly European, from travelling to the United States if they have visited Iran, Iraq, Syria or Sudan in the previous five years . . . underscores the fact that the nuclear issue has always been a pretext for advancing the economic and strategic agenda of US imperialism in the Middle East . . . US imperialism has no intention of being driven out of the energy-rich region and is determined to remove all obstacles to its regional dominance by any means. While not spelt out, the logic of the editorial in rejecting Obama's tactic for ensuring American hegemony is a further expansion of the US-led war already underway in Iraq and Syria to also target Iran . . .

Comment: As Jewish war criminals provoked Germany and Japan into World War II, Jewish war criminals ruling the US, Britain, France, China, Russia, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Israel and Turkey are attempting to 'checkmate' Iran, Syria, Russia and China to provoke the 'hot stage' or World War III to preserve the central banking cartel, IMF, WB, BIS and reserve currency status of US dollar.
This is "the squeeze." From the earthquake at the end of the dispensation society will apply it to the saints; by the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week Rome and her once Protestant US image will apply it to all dissenters (Revelation 13:15-18).
Lifting the Veil: an Investigative History of the United States Pathocracy
"I know the capacity that is there to make tyranny total in America. We must see to it that this agency and all agencies that possess this technology operate within the law and under proper supervision, so that we never cross over that abyss. That is the abyss from which there is no return." US Senator Frank Church, 1975.

US Mercenary Thugs thrown out of Libya
December 31, 2015 The Pentagon has confirmed that US special operations troops who travelled to Libya were kicked out of the country as soon as they arrived. This event marks a new level of international shame and embarrassment for the United States military under the sociopathic regime of Barack Obama . . . and Hillary Clinton . . .

Arsenal of Hypocrisy: the Space Program and the Military Industrial Complex
December 19, 2011 Today the Military Industrial Complex is marching towards world dominance through Space technology on behalf of global corporate interests. To understand how and why the space program will be used to fight all future wars on earth from space, it's important to understand how the public has been misled about the origins and true purpose of the Space Program.
The one-hour production features archival footage, Pentagon documents, and clearly outlines the US plan to "control and dominate" space and the Earth below. The video spells out the dangers of the Bush "Nuclear Systems Initiative" that will expand the use of nuclear power in space by building Project Prometheus—the nuclear rocket.

Gold Bars in Fort Knox are Fake!
December 4, 2009 Here is another article that puts forward further factual evidence that the US Federal Gold storage in Fort Knox Kentucky is not only full of fake gold bars, but asks the hard questions: What's next? and, what do we do about it? Please read the article and judge for yourself . . . Full story: northerntruthseeker.blogspot.ca
Comment: Old news worth remembering previously reported in Newsletters 609 624 666 and 672. Rumors persist that the gold chambers of Fort Knox are bare, a fact that, were it to be verified, would spell curtains for the dollar as reserve currency. Washington adamantly holds to the story line that the Federal Reserve sits on 8,133 tons of gold reserves. If true, that would far exceed the second-largest, Germany, whose official gold holdings are listed by the IMF at 3,381 tons (journal-neo.org).
Now you can understand the TRUTH of Brother Branham's prophecy that the Vatican will save her own skin, that of the Jewish banksters and the corrupt United States by refinancing the US dollar with gold backing.
German Human Rights Chief: Erdogan's Turkey 'Does not belong in the EU'
December 29, 2015 Germany's Human Rights Commissioner has asserted that Turkey does not belong in the European Union until its human rights record improvesa standpoint that puts him at odds with EU leaders and his country's leader Angela Merkel. In an interview with N24, Christoph Strässer admitted that while Germany and other the European Union member states should deal with Russia and Turkey, the latter is nowhere near close to being eligible for EU membership due to the country's poor human rights record . . .

The Day of Redemption
Revelation 3:20-22, "I stand at the door [of every apostate once Protestant church] and knock; if any individualwise virgin, or foolishhears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and fellowship with him and he with Me. I will grant to everyone who conquers to sit beside Me on My [millennial] throne, as I also conquered and sat down with My Father in His throne [in the seventh dimension]. Whoever has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches".
Revelation 4:1-2, "After the Church Ages ended in 1963 with Laodicea's apostasy and Christ the Word excluded from the churches that bear His Name, I looked to heaven and saw that the door to the Kingdom of God and His throne remained open: [Christ is the Door to the sheepfold: "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no one comes to the Father, but by Me" (John 14:6; 10:7)]; and the loud Voice of Christ that I first heard speaking to me clear and certain like a trumpet from the midst of the candlesticks (Revelation 1:10-13) now spoke from heaven; [for redemption was over]; it said, Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after the Church Ages of PART-Word have rejected grace. All that remains is judgment and the wrath of God]. Instantly I was in the Spirit: and saw a throne standing in heaven, and Jesus Christ was the "ONE" seated on God's throne" (Psalm 100:1; Hebrews 12:2).
God's first throne was His Judgment seat in heaven. His second throne was in Christ who took our judgment upon Himself and was raised for our justification; His third throne is in the heart of Christ's Bride. In Exodus 19:16 when Israel passed from grace to the curse of the Law and judgment "there were thunders and lightnings, and the great Voice of the trumpet" as in Revelation 4:5. In Revelation 1:10-13 "the [same] great voice, as of a trumpet . . . spoke with John"; who represents me and every member of Christ's end-time Bride. So in I Thessalonians 4:16 the Voice of the Archangel is Christ, whispering His secrets in the heart of His end-time Bride to cause mature understanding to appear to mind whereby Christendom is divided between "He that is unjust and filthy: and he that is righteous and holy." Christ has come to "bring division on earth" (Luke 12:51-53) and will recompense every individual according to what he has done with the "Shout, Voice and Trump of Redemption" (Revelation, Chapter 4, Part I, p. 577:151-160; Part III, p. 665:106; Revelation 22:11-12).
I Thessalonians 4:14-16, "If we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him. For this we say to you by the Word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain to the Coming of the Lord shall not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first".
It is not us first coming to Him; it was His secret sudden unseen 'parousia' Coming to us as a thief (I Thessalonians 5:2; II Peter 3:10; Revelation 16:15): the initiative is His. "The Lord Himself shall descend," otherwise no one would come to Him. His "shout" is a stimulating cry like the command of a General whose order summons to battle for the destruction of His enemies and the extermination of the antichristian power (II Thessalonians 2; Revelation 19:11-21). Obedience baptizes His end-time Bride into the real Salvation Army by regeneration. This is followed by "the Voice of the Archangel"Christ enthroned in the heart of His end-time Bride whispering His secrets to place the Message from Genesis to Revelation to make understanding evident and draw us to maturity in the unity of the faith. The "Trump of God" will signal "the great and dreadful Day of the Lord": sinking Los Angeles, raising and glorifying the sleeping saints, manifesting that we are the living Sons of God, glorifying and translating us (Psalms 50:1-5; I Corinthians 15:52).
Brother Branham explained, "When John looked he saw only "ONE" upon the throne. And it was not until Revelation 5:6-8 (which follows Revelation 4:2-3 in sequence of time) that we see the "Lamb" taking the Book from "HIM" that sat on the throne, as indicated in Revelation 4:2-3 and 9-10. What is it? It is the mystery of "ONE GOD." He (Jesus), came out from God, became manifested in flesh, died and rose again, and returned to the "Bosom of the Father" or as John said, "The only begotten Son which is IN the bosom of the Father, He has declared, interpreted or made Him known" (John 1:18). It was now time for God (Messiah) to come back to claim His Bride and then present Himself (make Himself known) to Israel. Thus we see God again stepping forth to assume a physical relationship to man as the "Son of David, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and Bridegroom of the Gentile Bride." It is NOT "two" Gods, but simply ONE GOD manifesting His mighty triune offices and titles" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 22:1).
Paraphrasing Ephesians 4:30 Brother Branham said, "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God until the day that the Book of Revelation has been revealed, and the Redeemer comes to claim His possession" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals p. 77:3-4).
In this diagram of the Gentile dispensation we see that the PART-Word Body of the saints from Pentecost to Laodicea is approved and sealed so no further souls can be born-again by "that which was in PART" (I Corinthians 13:10). His end-time Bride will be quickened by the fullness of the Word as will 144,000 Israelites; all were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary and do not need mediation for ignorance. In Revelation 5:11 and Daniel 7:10 we find His Bride of all ages, "myriads and myriads and thousands of thousands who had ministered to Him" in their dispensations; ALL were IN the throne when He opened the Book in 1963: the Judgment was set, and the books were opened. Then in his vision of Armageddon in end of the Seventieth Week Daniel kept looking because of the sound of the boastful words which the Devil-incarnate pope was speaking: he watched until the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. As for the rest of the beasts, their dominion was taken away and they will be resurrected after the millennium to stand before the White Throne Judgment. In his night visions Daniel saw One like the Son of Man coming with the clouds of heaven and He came to the Ancient of Days, and was presented Him before Him. And to Him was given dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve Him: His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which will not pass away, and one which shall not be destroyed. The non-elect will be judged according to their works, and all whose names are not in the Book of Life will be cast into the Lake of Fire (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 53:1-4; 275:1 276:1; 312:2; 316:2; Daniel 7:9-14; Revelation 19:18-21; 20:11-15). These visions confirm that redemption ended when the last Laodicean was born again; that Christ is no longer Mediator but Judge, that His end-time Bride was fully redeemed in Him on Calvary and that the life decisions of the non-elect were foreknown before their birth (I Peter 1:2; Seals 110:1-112:3; 234:5-235:2; 500:Q23a - 501:4; 502:3-5). Revelation 6:11 confirms that after Christ claimed and opened the Book of Life the martyred Fifth Seal Israelites under the sacrifice altar recognize their Kinsman Redeemer has come and that they qualify for appeal. The Church is raptured in Revelation 4:1 and does not reappear until after the Wedding Supper in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Revelation 19:7-14).
John represents Christ's end-time Bride throughout the Book of Revelation. Brother Branham explained:
- "The first three chapters of Revelations was the Church Ages.
- Then John was caught up in the fourth and fifth chapter and was showed things that was to be hereafter.
Now, on the sixth chapter he drops down into the earth again to see things taking place that will go from the sixth chapter first verse, until the nineteenth chapter and the twenty-first verse. In here comes in the Seals, the Plagues, the Woes, the locusts, the woman in the sun, and the casting out of the red dragon, the sealing away of the 144,000, and all these things" . . . Revelation 6:1 to Revelation 19:21 is connected with the Seventieth Week (Daniel, p. 8:31, 71; 79:136).
"The church leaves on the third chapter of Revelations . . . the last thing was the last messenger of the age. Then we deal with the
JewsIsraelites until the coming again with the Bride in the nineteenth chapter. From the sixth to the nineteenth chapter is all Jewish . . . those 144,000 were not . . . anything to do with the Gentiles; they're JewsIsraelites. See? (The Seventy Weeks of Daniel, p. 96:39).
Between the sealed Body of Part-Word saints and the Capstone is the chasm or breach between "that which was in part" plus Christ's mediation, and "that which is perfect" which Brother Branham called, "the perfect interpretation of the Word with Divine vindication" (COD, p. 1,005:57; I Corinthians 13:10). The only way across the chasm into the Capstone which is Christ, the fullness of the Word, is to receive the capstone revelation of the Supreme Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ by "that which is perfect" or complete.
New birth, one's election and the rapture are personal revelations from Jesus Christ confirmed from Genesis to Revelation. Brother Branham said if a person is unable to receive the revelation of the true oneness of the godhead, Scriptural water baptism and the original sin, you know the election is off. "So avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the Law; for they are unprofitable and vain. A man who is a heretic after the first and second admonition reject; knowing that such a man is subverted, and sins, being condemned of himself" (Titus 3:9-11).
Revelation 5:1-7, "I saw in the right hand of the One who was seated on the throne a Book written on both sides of its pages and sealed with Seven Seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming in a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the Book, and to break its Seals?" And no one, either in heaven or on earth or under the earth, was able to open the Book or look into it. And I wept bitterly because no one was found worthy to open the Book or to look into it. Then one of the elders said to me, "Stop crying, for look! The Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, and proven Himself worthy to open the Book, and to loose its Seven Seals."
"And between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders, I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain. It had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth. He came and took the Book out of the right hand of Him that was seated on the throne".
Hereafter Christ descended with the open Book, placed judgment on the Roman beast and her once Protestant image, and swore by Himself who created heaven and what it contains, the earth and what is in it, and the sea and everything in it, "That there should be no further delay for intercession" (Revelation 10:1-6). Christ's Mediation for the ignorance of that which is perfect was "done away" and redemption is over (I Corinthians 13:10).
The "seven horns" signify the saints of seven Church Ages who stood in defence of the Lamb, "earnestly contendingeven unto deathfor the faith which was once for all delivered unto the saints" (Jude 3). The seven eyes signify seven seers or Church Age Messengers, Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Martin Luther, John Wesley, and William Branham.
Zechariah 3:8-9, "Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, you, and your fellow priests who sit before you; they foreshadow and forerun good things to come: for, behold, I will bring forth My servant Messiah the BRANCH. See the Stone that I have set before Joshua; upon One Stone seven eyes [seers/Church Age messengers (Ephesians 4:8-16)]: I will engrave its inscription [the unwritten Seventh Seal of Revelation 8:1 which is the mysteries of the Seven Thunders John was forbidden to write; they unfold the mystery of the six written Seals], says the Lord of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of this land [of the Covenant] in one day [in the latter half of Daniel's Seventieth Week]. Thereafter [in the millennium], says the Lord of hosts, you will all live in peace and prosperity in your own homes where you can invite your neighbours" (Isaiah 66:8; Ezekiel 39:22; Zechariah 13:1).
Zechariah 4:1-10, "Then the angel [Brother Branham] appeared to Zechariah and woke him as though he had been asleep (Matthew 25:1-13) and in a vision showed him a golden lampstand, crowned with a bowl [Christ, the Holy Spirit over His Church (Revelation 1:12-20)] from which pipes fed its seven lamps, and two olive trees [engraved on the bowl], one upon the right side of the bowl signifying the Old Testament of the cultivated olive tree], and the other upon the left side [signifying the New Testament of the wild olive tree]. And the angel [Brother Branham] explained, "THUS SAITH THE LORD to [his type], Zerubbabel [who was of the Davidic lineage, hence also a type of Christ], Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit [from the bowl above the Lampstand or Church] you will restore Solomon's temple from its foundation to its chief cornerstone as I will restore the Temple of David's Greater Son from the foundation of the apostles and prophets and reveal the mysteries of the seven thunders to finish the mystery of God and reveal the rejected Capstone, Jesus Messiah" (Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:1-7; Zechariah 3:2, 9)]. Who are you, O [metaphorical] great mountain [of opposition]? Before Zerubbabel (and his antitype William Branham) you will become a plain: and He shall bring forth the Headstone with shoutings, Grace, grace unto Christ the Capstone [the Author and Finisher of our faith" (Hebrews 12:2)].
[As Brother Branham was baptizing the seventeenth penitent in the Ohio River on June 16, 1933 an audible Voice under the Pillar of Fire in the form of a star said, "As John the Baptist foreran My first Coming, your Message will forerun My second Coming." Christ descended upon Mount Sunset in a Cloud with the open Book of Redemption on March 8, 1963 as seven thunders uttered their voices (Revelation 10:1-4). Returning to his home Church the Prophet ministered "The Revelation of the Seven Seals" from March 17-24. This Message introduced the second or 'parousia' Coming of Christ the Capstone].
"Moreover the Word of the Lord came to me, saying, "The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent me to you. For who has despised the day of small things [God in simplicity]? For they shall rejoice, and see the plumb line [of the Absolute of the fullness of the Word in judgment] in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven [eyes, the sevenfold Spirit of the Lord that anointed the Church Age Messengers and manifest the Trumpets (Zechariah 3:9; Revelation 5:6)]; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth." Blinded spiritually, not until "the time of Jacob's trouble" in the latter half of Daniel's Seventieth Week will Israel be prepared to receive King Messiah and His Queen (Zechariah 12:10-12).
Matthew 21:23, 39-46, "When Jesus was in the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came to Him as He was teaching [the parable of the wicked husbandmen who waylaid the Son of the Owner, cast Him out of the vineyard, and slew Him]. And Jesus enquired, "When the Owner of the vineyard returns, what will He do to those tenant farmers?" The Jewish leaders answered, "He will put those wretches to a miserable death, and lease His vineyard to other tenants [of Adam's race] who will pay Him His share in each season" (Malachi 3:8-12).
Jesus said to them, "Have you never read in the Scriptures, 'the Stone which the builders rejected has become the Headstone of the corner?' this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes" (Psalm 118:22). Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken from you, and given to a nation that produces its fruits. Whoever stumbles on this Stone will be broken: and those on whom it falls shall be ground to powder."
When the chief priests and Pharisees heard His parables, they knew He was speaking of them, but were afraid to arrest Him because the multitude took Him for a prophet" (Zechariah 3:9; I Peter 2:6-8; Matthew 21:42).
The Stone which the Israelite builders rejected is the Capstone of the Body of Christ; the Gentile denominations refused the same Stone when the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form (I Corinthians 13:10; I Thessalonians 4:14-16; Revelation 10:1-7). The golden lamp stand of Zechariah 4:1-10 stood on the southern side of the Holy Place signifying Christ with His glorified Gentile Bride, "a holy nation that produces its fruits as the Light of the world."
Israel's revelation of the Capstone and the Golden Lamp stand of Zechariah 3 and 4 is portrayed in Revelation 19:1-7. This is when the Church reappears in the Book after going up at the close of Laodicea when redemption was over.
In his Message, "Sirs, is this the Time" (p. 14:4 15:4), Brother Branham said that in February 1961 Junior Jackson had a dream. He came to me, and said, "Something is on my heart; I must tell you, Brother Branham."
I said, "Go on, Brother Jackson."
And he said, "I dreamed a dream," and there it was [in a vision]. I just set still. And I listened and watched.
He said, "I dreamed that there was a great big hill, like out in a field where bluegrass, or something was." And said, "Up on top of this hill, where the water had washed away the soil, there was a top rock up on top of the hill; like the top of the mountain. It was rock, no grass. And where the water had washed down, it had cut some kind of readings on these stones, and you were standing there interpreting this reading on these stones." And said, "All of it . . ." [the Church Ages and Six written Seals]. And here's the way he put it, said, "The brethren from Georgia, and from all around, we were all standing together, listening to you interpret that mysterious writing on those stones [on] that mountain."
"And said, "Then you picked up something, like from the air, something like a wrecking bar, or a crowbar," wasn't it, brother? Something like that, a wrecking bar, real sharp, and said, "How you done it, I don't know." [The Sword of the Lord was placed in the Prophet's right hand in Sabino Canyon signifying his 'third pull,' the opening of the Word revealing the Seven Seals]. And said, "You struck the top of that mountain, ripped it around, and lifted the cap of it off. It was in the shape of a pyramid. And you ripped the top of it off." Now, that was months and months and months before the pyramid Message ["The Stature of a Perfect Man"] was preached [on October 14, 1962]. And said, "Beneath that was white stone, granite, and you said, 'The sun, or the light, has never shined on this before [because the unwritten Seventh Seal, which is the revelation of the previous six written Seals, was hidden from the foundation of the world (Genesis 1:2-3)]. Look in on this. Watch this'."
"And that's right, because in the formation of the world, the world was formed before there was light. We all know that. God moved upon the water, and then in the beginning He spoke for light [Genesis 1:2]. And naturally, down under there in the age that formation was, that light had never come upon that stone."
"And he said, "Look upon this. Light has never come upon it before." And when all of them got up, and I told them to watch that, and all of them come up to look in. But he said while they were looking in, he looked out of the corner of his eye; I believe it was, and watched me. I slipped off to one side and started going towards the west, towards the setting of the sun, coming up a hill, going down a hill, coming up a hill, going down a hill, getting smaller and smaller, and went all the way out of sight."
And he said then, when I did that . . . He said, "Then the brethren turned around after while, and said, 'Did he vanish? Where did he go?'" And said, "Some took out that way, some took one way, and some another, but a very few stayed and looked on to what I had told them."
On December 22, 1962 the Lord showed Brother Branham a vision in which he was in Tucson and it seemed as if his son Joseph was nearby. In the vision was a big bush in which a number of tiny birds were perched in the form of a pyramid [signifying the 'first pull' of his ministry, the sign in his hand]. They were watching eastward, and he was at Tucson Arizona in the vision, picking a burr from his trousers when suddenly they flew away eastward. And as soon as they left, a constellation of larger birds came swiftly eastward [signifying the 'second pull' of his ministry, discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart]. They flew out of sight and he turned westward; a blast shook the whole earth, and seven angels in the constellation of a pyramid came eastward from eternity with terrific speed way off into eternity with the mystery of the Seven Seals on the unwritten Capstone. And the power of Almighty God caught him up to meet them.
Following a Supernatural star seen by no astronomer, three magi travelled for two years from the east to the west to witness Messiah's first advent (Numbers 24:17). That heavenly Light did not illumine Jerusalem with its apostate Temple for God cannot work within organized religion (Amos 3:3). Brother Branham was one of three messengers in the days of His second or 'parousia' Coming, and like the created Man in the days of Lot and the virgin-born Man in the days of His flesh, he veiled the fullness of the Word and "discerned the thoughts and intents of people's hearts [to God's separated people], revealing Jesus Christ the same yesterday and today and forever" (Genesis 18-19; Luke 17:28-30; Hebrews 4:12; 13:8) while Billy Graham and Oral Roberts ministered among the organized churches in Sodom. Following a series of visions and Spiritual dreams, the Prophet moved from Jeffersonville in the east to Tucson in the west where God said that a constellation of the seven stars of Revelation 1:20 would precede the fullness of the Spirit of God and Christ's second or parousia Coming. They manifest "not in the secret chambers" but above Sunset Mountain in the Arizona desert on March 8, 1963 (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:26-28; Revelation 10:1-4).
This promise of Scripture was foreshadowed by the heavenly sign of the Shekinah on February 28, 1963 (Psalm 19), and despite about 150 independent reports and photographs, scientific papers published in such journals as Weatherwise, and Science, books on meteorology, encyclopaedia year books, and articles in the international press, scientists have been unable to find a natural explanation for this Supernatural phenomenon. Jesus said, "When these things begin to come to pass, then look up, for your redemption draws nigh," yet the world church system has not seen the Light.
Closing his Message on the Seventh Seal Brother Branham said, "One Angel was very notable to me . . . He was to my left in the constellation in a form of a pyramid . . . where the mysterious white rock was not written on. And the Angels took me into that pyramid of themselves, the mysteries of God known only to them[what the seven thunders of Revelation 10 uttered]. Now, the Angel was to my left, would really be the last, or seventh Angel [of Revelation 10:7, the theophany of William Branham], if we would count them from left to right, because he was on my left, me looking to him towards the west, him coming towards the east would be on the left side, so that would be the last angel's Message: very notable . . . he flew right to me. Now, that is this [unwritten] Seventh Seal."
"But now, each one of you in the meeting has noticed that what a meeting it's been . . . It's been the Holy Spirit sending down these messengers, and they have been revealing it to us. And then notice how it's dovetailed with the Word, exactly . . . He never told me one thing in the vision when He took me up. I was scared, afraid I was going to die, be killed in an explosion. [The presence of his son Joseph in the vision was to demonstrate that the blast did not mean his death but his new Message, his 'third pull' revealing the mystery of the Seven Thunders]. . . The interpretation come just as I had need of it; that was in the room. And I gave it out just as He give it."
"Now, you see, friends, visions doesn't fail; they're always perfect; they're just exactly true. Now, the vision, plus the Word, plus the history, plus the Church Ages; and all blend together. So I could truly say that to the best of my understanding and according to the Word of God and the vision and the revelation, the interpretation thereof is THUS SAITH THE LORD" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 578:1 579:2).
In Revelation 4:5 the "seven lamps burning before the Lord" were the seven Spirits that anointed the "angels" who were the eyes, ears and lips of the Lord in each of the seven Church Ages (Proverbs 20:27; John 5:35; Revelation 5:6; 10:3-4), and the voices that came from the throne are their witness against sinners who have rejected their Messages of grace.
The laver that stood in the court of the tabernacle in the wilderness was cast from the polished copper looking glasses offered by devout Israelite women who renounced the instrument of personal vanity for the sake of the higher beauties of holiness. The laver acted as a reservoir from which water was drawn into its base which was the place wherein the priests washed their hands and feet in approaching the altar and nearing the sanctuary, on pain of death. The animal victims for burnt offering were washed in the same water before they were offered on the brazen altar, and every worshipper entering the Presence must be sanctified by the washing of water by revelation of the Word (Matthew 3:15; Romans 12:1; Ephesians 5:21-27). The Word of God is a mirror wherein we see ourselves and God's image reflected and is the means of sanctifying or cleansing (II Corinthians 3:18; James 1:23-25; Exodus 30:18-19; 38:8). In Revelation 4:6, "the water in the laver before the throne was as clear as transparent crystal" showing that the PART-Word saints are all redeemed, and as Christ's end-time Bride was fully redeemed on Calvary the entire Body of Christ is now therefore accounted "raised up to sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus" (Ephesians 2:6).
In Revelation 15:2-5 the water in the laver is mingled with holy Fire and the blood of 144,000 elect Israelites martyred in victory over the Judaeo-Roman beast and over his imagethe federation of (once) Protestant churches, and over his mark of trinitarian dogma, and over the Devil-incarnate pope. In their belated recognition of Jesus Messiah's 'parousia' to Israel "they will sing the song that God's servant Moses sang [after the Lord delivered Israel through the Red Sea], and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are Your works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are Your ways, You King of saints. Who shall not revere and glorify Your Name, O Lord? For You alone are holy. All nations shall come and worship before You because [the righteousness of] Your judgments has been made known." We saw the wickedness of unbelief and took our stand for You in the Great Tribulation, honouring You and your Gentile Bride, our King and Queen represented as the golden menorah south in the sanctuary reflecting "the Light of the World" upon the water in the laver.
Revelation 5:8-14 initiates a time of worship and rest because Christ's Work of intercession is fulfilled, the Seals have been opened and the revelation of their THUS SAITH THE LORD by the Spirit ends our labour of trying to understand a closed Book, transporting us across the chasm or breach between PART-Word and "that which is perfect and complete" into Christ the Capstone and the holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the antitype of Israel's Pentecostal feast that is the threefold PROCESS called the rapture for the Pentecostal Jubilee. "And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all therein, saying: "To Him who is seated on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honour and glory and dominion forever and ever" (Revelation 5:13). Because the creation eagerly awaits the full adoption of the Sons of God; for the creation was subjected to vanity, not of its own choice but by the will of Him who subjected it in hope; and because creation itself will be liberated from its enslavement to thorns, thistles, sin, death and decay into the glorious liberty of God's children" (Romans 8:19-25).
Enoch, one man called out from the seventh generation of the first Adam types Christ's end-time Bride called out from the seventh generation of the last Adam. God translated Enoch because he had the testimony that he pleased God being in the unity of the faith (Hebrews 11:5-6; Ephesians 4:13). Christ's end-time Bride will possess the mind of Christ concerning the Seven Thunders for rapturing faith. Ephesians 4:30, "Grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby you are sealed to the day of redemption"about March 8, 1963 when the Laodicean Church Age was fulfilled, redemption was over, and our Kinsman Redeemer claimed the Book of Redemption, opened the Seals and descended with the open Book (Revelation 5:7; 10:1-4).
These mysteries were ministered from March 17 to 24 and for fifty-two years the Church has possessed the letter. By unmerited grace through faith God's elect possess the revelation of the letter enabling them to "Put away all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamour and abusive language and all malice; be kind toward one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you". nl904.htm
