Bible Believers' Newsletter 1014
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is always good to see you; we appreciate your company and once again welcome our new subscribers, readers and visitors.
Please pay particularly close attention to the "Full story" behind the news items in this issue; note how faithfully they reflect what we might call the "script" of God's great drama as it unfolds in real time both in our lives and in the world. Jesus said: "You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and ordained you that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you ask of the Father in My Name, He may give it to you." Under serving and undeserving as we are, we thank the Lord for His wonderful grace whereby we have recognized our day and its Message and been placed into our position in His Body.
One special article discusses two important considerations with simple scriptural and historical explanations. One exposes the trinity; the other concerns "the end-time" that most believe by hearsay. With faith we would all recognize the sign in the heavens and the vindicated prophet mandated by Psalm 19:1-3 and Amos 3:7 and join the wise and foolish virgins in their exodus from every church.
By grace through faith alone "We are the Righteousness of God in Christ"—the title of our main article—which reveals how Joshua's new commission was a type of Brother Branham's new commission, and that the Book of Joshua parallels Ephesians and Revelation 1-3.
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.
Netanyahu besieged. Regime Change in Israel?
February 26, 2018 — Benjamin Netanyahu . . . apparently . . . to follow his predecessor Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to jail. Olmert had been released only half a year ago after a stint for corruption and obstruction of justice. Now it is Netanyahu's turn to taste prison gruel, instead of pink champagne . . . He is the man who killed the peace process, who enslaved the Palestinians, tortured Gaza, bombed Syria and Lebanon, did his damnedest to ignite war with Iran . . . awful Netanyahu will probably be replaced by an even worse politician, of Jewish religious-ISIS kind or of Jewish secular-fascist kind. This is the terrible logic of apartheid. There is a way out: elimination of apartheid and equality of Jews and non-Jews in the country; but apparently it is not on the table.
In the international context, the fall of Netanyahu will have a big impact. It will be the victory of the liberal globalists, for Netanyahu is a partner of Trump and Putin. However, the liberals won't enjoy the fruits of their victory, as Israel will continue its drift into religious fundamentalism. Full story: unz.com
Comment: Israel will soon be invaded, defeated and finished as a military power. An exodus of non-Semitic self-styled Israeli Jews (not Israelites) will enable Jacob's seed to return for redemption in the Land of their Covenant (Isaiah 6:9-13; 13:6-16; Joel 2:12; Zechariah 14:2; Revelation 16:19; UN Resolution 181 of 1947). Thugs like Netanyahu prepared for this by the Jew-controlled US coup of their homeland Khazaria, the Ukraine.
'No Equivalency' between Legit. Syrian Govt. & Terrorists destroying Syria on Washington's Behalf
February 26, 2018 — Syria and its allies have every legal right to defend Syria's peoples, its sovereignty and its territorial integrity. The terrorists, on the other hand, have no right to destroy the country, and to target civilians, as they have been doing, for the last 7 years. Al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists in East Ghouta, near Syria's capital Damascus, the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, are dug in, well-equipped, and fortified with human shields/innocent civilians. They are sectarian, and they exist as a military force because of the West, not despite the West . . .
Whereas the Syrian Arab Army seeks to avoid civilian casualties, the terrorists target civilians. This fundamental difference between the terrorists and the legitimate government is erased from Western discourse . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: All US wars and related occupations are flagrantly illegal, Trump continuing what his predecessors began. Pentagon and State Department officials lied, claiming Washington needs no congressional or other authorization to maintain a military presence in Syria and Iraq . . . "Any foreign troops coming to Syria without our invitation or consultation or permission, they are invaders, whether they are American, Turkish, or any other(s). Russia operates in Syria by invitation. So do Hezbollah fighters and Iranian military advisors. US forces are there illegally—waging naked aggression by terror-bombing and support for terrorists, seeking regime change . . . Without US-led foreign intervention, war would "only take a few months" to end. It never would have been launched . . . state-sponsored terrorism, no others from terrorist groups Washington created and supports . . . Throughout its history, Syria never threatened US security . . . Washington created and supports ISIS and al-Qaeda . . . (stephenlendman.org). No sarin gas was used by President Al Assad in Syria (youtu.be).
Britain officially prepares now for War against Russia
February 25, 2018 — UK's Minister of Defence, Conservative Gavin Williamson, announced that the United Kingdom is changing its fundamental defence strategy from one that's targeted against non-state terrorists (Al Qaeda, etc.), to one that's targeted instead against three countries: Russia, China, and North Korea . . . and chimes with a decision by the United States last month . . . in order for the leaders to do this, there will need to be a total divorce from even the claim of being 'democracies,' because, on such a momentous decision as to whether or not there should be a Third World War (and if so, whether Iran should be a target in it), going against the overwhelming public opinion wouldn't be possible except in what is effectively a dictatorship (such as the US has been scientifically proven to be) . . .
[T]here probably aren't yet, and won't soon be, enough billionaires' bunkers deep underground — such as here, and here, and here, and here, etc., etc., etc. . . . to protect them from even the nuclear blasts, much less anything at all to protect anyone at all from the resulting nuclear winter and global famine. So, perhaps, greed will finally meet its limit: sheer self-preservation . . .

Comment: Revelation 6:12-17, "I beheld when Jesus had opened the Sixth Seal, and there was a great earthquake (Revelation 11:19; 16:18; Matthew 24:7) like blood; and the stars of the heaven fell to the earth (Matthew 24:29), as a fig tree casts her unripe figs when shaken of a great wind (Isaiah 34:4). The heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places (Revelation 16:20; Isaiah 54:10; Jeremiah 4:24; Ezekiel 38:20; Nahum 1:5). And the kings of the earth, and the commanders and the great men, and the rich and the strong and every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and among the rocks of the mountains (Isaiah 2:10-22; Luke 23:30); and they said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: for the Great Day of His Wrath is come; and who will be able to stand?" (Isaiah 63:4; Jeremiah 3:7; Nahum 1:6; Zephaniah 1:14-18; Malachi 3:2; Revelation 16:14).
Russia successfully tests New Missile Defense Interceptor
March 9, 1958 — Brother Branham said, "Russia according to our own science is five years ahead of us. And when we've caught up, in five years, they'll be ten years farther the other way. God is letting an ungodly nation, letting an ungodly people that took those "Jewish" scientists up there, and they are far ahead of us. We're putting our time to wine, women and big time. And they're working day and night, how to blow us up. There's not one thing that could keep them from doing it right now. Look the condition we're in, the whole nation" (#29:5, The Handwriting On the Wall, p. 15:121).

US using Extortion to block Russian Arms Sales
February 23, 2018 — The United States has warned Iraq, among a number of other countries, of the consequences of extending military cooperation with Russia, and striking deals to purchase advanced weaponry, particularly the S-400 surface-to-air missile defense systems . . . the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA) . . . possible consequences that would arise in the wake of defense agreements with Moscow . . . ready to sell its air defense systems to any country with security concerns Full story: veteranstoday.com

New York Times destroys New World Order Ideology
February 23, 2018 — The New York Times, a thoroughly Zionist outlet, has recently decimated the New World Order ideology by admitting that the United States has a history of meddling in foreign elections. This is really interesting: "Bags of cash delivered to a Rome hotel for favoured Italian candidates. Scandalous stories leaked to foreign newspapers to swing an election in Nicaragua. Millions of pamphlets, posters and stickers printed to defeat an incumbent in Serbia.
"The long arm of Vladimir Putin? No, just a small sample of the United States' history of intervention in foreign elections."
Now, how is it possible for New World Order agents to even remotely suggest that Russia has to be attacked because they allegedly "hacked" the US election? Should other countries start bombing the US for meddling in their elections as well? . . . US politicians are shocked that Russia [allegedly] "hacked" the 2016 election, but not a single official is shocked that the United States has been hacking other elections since 1947 . . .

Comment: The Deep State "rig elections . . . assassinate presidents—JFK was a notable victim—and candidates—his brother Bobby Kennedy—and senators, US Senator Paul Wellstone. These people run the drug trade. The CIA dominates the world drug trade as professor Alfred McCoy . . ." 'Deep State is essentially a criminal gang' . . . (veteranstoday.com).
Did CIA sabotage Russia at the Olympics?
February 26, 2018 — Something is very fishy about the Anti Doping Rule Violations (ADRVs) pinned on the Russian curler and Russian bobsledder during the final week of the Peyongchang Winter Olympics. It makes no logical sense that an athlete would do a one-time consumption of a chemical that is of no value in circumstances where it is almost certain to be detected with huge negative consequences . . .

The Venezuelan 'Petro' – towards a New World Reserve Currency?
February 23, 2018 — On February 20, 2018, Venezuela has launched . . . a government-made and controlled cryptocurrency, based on Venezuela's huge petrol reserves . . . The Petro's value will fluctuate with the market price of petrol, currently around US$61 per barrel of crude . . . totally outside the reach of the US Federal Reserve (FED) and Wall Street—and it is based on the value of the world's key energy, hydrocarbons, of which Venezuela has the globe's largest proven reserves.
It sets a new paradigm for international trade, for safe payment systems that cannot be tampered with by the FED, Wall Street, SWIFT, New York courts, and other Washington puppets, like the European Central Bank (ECB), the unelected European Commission (EC) and other EU-associated Brussels institutions. It will allow economic development outside illegal 'sanctions'.
Rumours have it, that in a last-ditch effort to salvage the faltering dollar, the FED might order the IMF to revert to some kind of a gold standard, blood-stained gold . . . It may stop the predator empire of the United States in its tracks, by simply decimating her economy of fraud, built on military might, exploitation and colonization of the world, on racism, and on a bulldozing scruple-less killing machine . . .

Bitcoin: What is the Future of Money?
November 2017 — One potential issue with BTC is the extreme concentration of its ownership. Far from being a "money of the people", there are a small percentage of owners who control nearly all of the existing stock.
As you can see on fig. 11, nearly 90% of all BTC is held by just 1% of BTC addresses. A further 3% of addresses own nearly 8% of all BTC, whilst the remaining 96% of all BTC owners collectively own less than 3.5% of all BTC.
Now, part of this is no doubt influenced by the fact that many BTC holders invest through exchanges. Therefore, if the exchange holds all the BTC for its clients through one wallet (like a superannuation fund owns shares on behalf of thousands of members) then ownership will appear more concentrated than it is . . .

Comment: Matthew 16:19-21, "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also".
7.5 Magnitude Earthquake strikes Papua New Guinea
February 25, 1018 — The quake took place at a depth of 35 kilometers, according to USGS and just 10 kilometers, according to European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC). Its epicenter was in a mountainous region around 40 kilometers north of Mount Bosavi, an extinct volcano . . . Papua New Guinea lies on the Ring of Fire . . . In January 2017, it suffered a 7.9 magnitude earthquake, leading to warnings of a tsunami. Full story: rt.com
Two Important Biblical Considerations
Consideration 1: Do you recall Jesus' encounter with the elect woman of John 4:22 and 24, and His emphatic, "You worship you know not what; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the
JewsJudahites . . . ? God is a [one] Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in truth. [That is, by revelation which is faith or a clear understanding of His revealed Word]".
If so, you will acknowledge the historical record that Christians shared this "common faith" until pagan Roman Emperor Constantine in partnership with "the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan . . . [and] hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock [substituting human reasoning in place of God's revealed Word] before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication" (Revelation 2:9, 14). And that this partnership organized the Judaeo-Roman Catholic false Church at the Hegelian dialectic of the First Nicaea Council of AD325 in the Pergamean Church Age (AD312-606).
Jesus warned the Philadelphian Church Age (1750-1906) "I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; to come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you" (Revelation 3:9).
In the Laodicean Church Age (1906-1963) and the present holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of Israel's Pentecostal Feast (that types the Gentile dispensation) Jesus commanded the wise and foolish virgins "come out of mystery, Babylon the Great [the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church] and her apostate (once) Protestant harlot daughter churches" or suffer her plagues (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4).
If you accept the truth of these scriptures and the record of history you will realize that Papal Rome introduced the Babylonian trinitarian religion of Imperial Rome into Christendom. Jesus and the prophets from Genesis to Revelation understood the unchanging God of Malachi 3:6 and Hebrews 13:8 is ONE Spirit, not two spirits and one Man. Since there is no trinity in all the pages of God's Bible will you not "repent and be baptised in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins (unbelief) (Acts 2:38-39; 4:12; Luke 24:47; Ephesians 4:5).
You must also know from history that those Christians who visited Nicaea departed before the Council convened when the followers of the heretics Arius and Athanasius refused to repent and return to God's Word. Thereafter the Roman government transferred pagan temples to the new state church which renamed the statues of pagan gods after Christian saints, and for almost 1,000 years the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church martyred scores of millions of Christians who refused to adopt their trinitarian dogma.
The first Adam called his wife Eve "because she was the mother of all living" (Genesis 3:20). The Judaeo-Roman Catholic church impersonates Christ's Bride the last Eve, calling herself the mother of all spiritual living. As Eve committed adultery against her husband before Adam could know her, Rome committed adultery against her espoused Husband the Word, joining herself to creed and dogma (trinitarianism, false baptism in three Titles, Apostles' Creed, etc.) at the First Nicaea Council. Jesus calls her "the great whore . . . THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS [her apostate (once) Protestant daughters] AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH" (Revelation 17:1, 5).
Consideration 2: Do you believe we are living in the "time of the end"?
If so you will agree that Daniel 12:4 and 9 are fulfilled. "But you, O Daniel, shut up the Words, and Seal the Book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. . . . Go your way, Daniel: for the Words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end".
And that Revelation 10:4 is also fulfilled: "I was about to write: and I heard a Voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not." Revelation 5:7 and 6:1 must also be fulfilled: "And Jesus came and took the Book out of the right hand of Him that sat upon the throne . . . . I saw when the Lamb opened one of the Seals . . . ."
Consequently Revelation 10:1-3 (I Thessalonians 4:16a and Jude 14 must) be fulfilled: "I saw another mighty Angel [Christ]) come down from heaven, clothed with a Cloud: and a rainbow was upon His head, and His face was as it were the sun, and His feet as pillars of fire: and He had in His hand a little Book open: and He set His right foot upon the sea, and His left foot on the earth, and cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars: and when He had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices . . . . But in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he has declared to His servants the prophets".
Thus you must know that Christ's second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming "as a thief in the night" took place between the Sixth and Seventh Vials, and that the Prophet of Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 1:1; 3:14; 10:7, etc, has revealed the Seven Seals to Christ's end-time Bride. Being familiar with the identity and Message of God's Prophet, and having "proven all things" in your own Bible, you will be understand that the end-time is about to terminate the Christian dispensation.

We are the Righteousness of God in Christ
II Corinthians 5:16-21, "Henceforth we recognize no man after the flesh; even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet we know Him thus no longer. Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Jesus Christ has reconciled us to Himself and given us the ministry of reconciliation. To wit, God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses against them, and committing to us the Message of reconciliation".
"Now we are ambassadors for Christ, God making His appeal through us. We beseech you in behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake He made Him who knew no sin to be made sin on our behalf, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God".
You are not your body which is the perishing tabernacle in which you are tried by the world and the things of the world. When death dissolves the earthly house of the Overcomer he has a celestial tabernacle or theophany not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. You are not your mortal spirit which is given by God to operate your mind and empower your body: you are your soul, the feminine of God created to worship and serve your Husband, the Word. "As pious women of old, who trusted in God, adorned themselves by the inward beauty of the hidden Man of the heart, in that which is incorruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price, being submissive to their own husbands: even as Sarah obeyed Abraham [following His guidance and acknowledging his headship over her by] calling him lord: you are her daughters, as long as you do right and are not terrified by any fear" (Genesis 1:26-28; I Peter 3:4-6).
Paul knew Christ by revelation after the Shekinah smote him to the ground blind, saying: "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me" (Acts 9:1-9)? Peter who had seen Christ in the flesh knew Him by revelation, for Jesus said, "Blessed are you, Simon Barjona: flesh and blood [human scholarship] has not revealed who I am, but My Father Who is in heaven. And I assure you that on this rock of Spiritual revelation I will build My Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against faith. And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven [which is a clear revelation of the Word for your day (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7): and whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatever You shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven" (Matthew 16:15-19).
Luke 17:21, "the kingdom of God is within you" and is unlocked by the key of faith [or understanding] of what Peter called "the present Truth." Jesus promised Peter the honour of unlocking the Kingdom or new birth for the Israelites which He did on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:38-39). Then he passed the keys to the Samaritans (Acts 8:14-17), and then to the Gentiles (Acts 10:34-48). The Life is passed through the Body of Christ whenever a Brother or Sister turns the keys of faith in the hearing of God's elect, quickening their soul to eternal Life (Romans 10:17; Galatians 3:2).
One must accept one's salvation, new birth and healing by grace through faith, not by prayer. If you are "saved," you were always saved because by God's foreknowledge your Name was on the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, and so long as your name is in that Book you are "saved" and will be granted in to eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment. The Book of Life is the genealogy of the first Adam.
Election looks back to God's foreknowledge through sanctification by the Spirit unto obedience to the revealed truth for your day and the sprinkling of His holy Blood of the Covenant. Foreknowledge looks to predestination ordained before God began His creation, and predestination looks forward to destiny (I Peter 1:2, 20; Romans 8:29). We must recognise our election—who we are, our position in the Word and God's purpose we have been ordained to fulfil, then accept our divine authority and apply the keys.
You are a manifestation of Christ, "If you have faith, and doubt not . . . you will say to this mountain, Be removed, and be cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatever you ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive" (Matthew 21:21-22). Whatever you bind or loose by revelation will be bound or loosed. You are Queen of the Kingdom under pre-eminence to your Lord, the King, and God has to honour His Word.
Joshua 1:1-9, "After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord it came to pass, that the Lord spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying, Moses My servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, you, and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them, to the sons of Israel. Every place on which the sole of your foot shall tread, I have given to you, as I told Moses. [Footprints mean possession]. From the wilderness and this Lebanon even to the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and as far as the Great Sea toward the setting of the sun, will be your territory. No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life: as I was with Moses, I will be with you: I will not fail you, or forsake you. Be strong and of a good courage: for You will divide the land to this people for an inheritance which I swore to their fathers to give them."
"Only be strong and very courageous, that you do according to all the Law which Moses My servant commanded you: do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth; but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you are careful to do according to all that is written therein: for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of a good courage! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go".
Moses failed God and took glory to himself, thus he typed organized religion and the Church Ages that organized and took God's glory upon themselves. Moses led Israel out from grace under Egyptian bondage to bondage under the Law; He had to die like the unbelieving wilderness wanderers before Joshua could lead the people into the Promised Land. Likewise, the Pentecostal and denominational wilderness wanderers will have to perish spiritually before Christ can translate His Capstone Bride to the meeting in the air.
Joshua chapter 10 will provide you with assurance of the Lord's defence on your left and on your right in the time of the 'squeeze' and the manifestation of the Sons of God by the operation of the 'third pull' in Christ's end-time Bride to develop faith for translation grace.
Joshua 10:12-14, "Then Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the sons of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, O sun, stand still upon Gibeon; and O moon in the valley of Ajalon. So the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves of their enemies. Is it not written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day. And there was no day like that before it or after it, when the Lord listened to the voice of a man: for the Lord fought for Israel".
Joshua's 'third pull' of grace is a type of Revelation 10:5-7, "And [Christ] the Angel that I saw standing upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up His right hand to the heaven, and swore by Him that lives forever and ever, Who created the heaven, and the things in it, and the earth, and the things in it, and the sea, and the things in it, that (Gk.) 'chronos' time shall be no longer: but in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel [William Branham], when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets".
Chronos time for Christ's intercession for ignorance of the fullness of the Word was fulfilled and redemption was over when He claimed and descended with the little Book open in His left hand because His end-time Bride and the 144,000 elect Israelites being predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word by the revelation of the Seven Seals or the Seven Trumpet mysteries were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary. So "time no longer" is not to be understood of the cessation of time and its swallowing up in eternity for this will be followed by a further period of time called "the days of the Voice of the seventh angel." This commenced fifty-five years ago with the revelation of the Seven Seals from March 17-24, 1963, and although the Prophet went to his reward in 1965, his voice will continue until the "silence in heaven about the space of half an hour" is broken by the sounding of Israel's Seventh Trumpet, the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and Seventh Vial terminating the Christian dispensation of grace.
After the first resurrection, the manifestation of the Sons of God and our translation a new period of time called Daniel's Seventieth Week of seven prophetic years will commence the Feast of Trumpets from Tishri 1. Daniel 12:5-11, "Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, [Israel's two witnesses], the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river. And one said to the Man clothed in linen, [Christ, the Holy Spirit], who was upon the waters of the river [thickness and multitudes of people], How long shall it be to the end of these wonders [performed by the 'Moses' and 'Elijah' (Revelation 11:3-6)]? And I heard the Man clothed in linen, Who was upon the waters of the river, when He held up His right hand and His left hand to heaven, and swore by Him Who lives forever that it shall be for a time, times, and a half [three and a half years of the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week]; and when the Beast has scattered the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished."
"And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And He said, Go your way, Daniel: for the Words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there will be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. [Three and a half prophetic years, or 1,260 days plus one intercalary month or 2 Adar]".
The millennium will be a further thousand year period of time, following which the general resurrection and Great White Throne Judgment will close time and eternity will set in on the renewed heavens and renewed earth.
Israel was under grace in Goshen with family priests, healing, secure homes, farms and pasture, the promise of Canaan, a prophet, miracles, and the sacrificial lamb as an atonement. Israel's exodus commenced under grace before the Law was introduced after the Red Sea crossing. Law and grace cannot coexist, and any Message that advances God's people cannot concur with a past Message. Thus Joshua could not begin his leadership until after the death of Moses; and Christ's end-time Bride could not enter the revelation of the end-time Message until after the death of the Church Ages and Brother Branham. Do you see the type?
I Corinthians 10:1-5, "I would not have you ignorant, brethren, how that our fathers were all under the Cloud, and all passed through the sea; and were all baptized unto Moses in the Cloud and in the sea; and all ate the same spiritual food of his Message; and all drank the same spiritual drink: for they were drinking from a spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. Nonetheless with most of them God was not well pleased; for they were overthrown in the wilderness [like the Pentecostals and other denominationals today]".
- The Israelites were prepared by faith under the sacrificial lamb in Egypt.
- They were baptized under the Cloud in the Red Sea and separated in the wilderness after crossing the Red Sea.
- Then they received the Law of self-works, broke their Covenant and worshipped the golden calf, a type of denominationalism, later substituting the Talmud for the Law and the Prophets and intermarrying Moab and Edom.
After Moses died, Joshua, which means "Jehovah Saviour" led Israel into Palestine. There John the Baptist introduced the nation to Jesus Christ and they murdered Messiah.
- As Moses led the sons of Israel out of Egyptian bondage, Martin Luther led the Church out of Roman bondage into the Liberty of Christ by justification by grace through faith.
- As Israel was sanctified by separation in the wilderness, so the Church was sanctified under John Wesley.
- Like Israel, the churches established their own "golden calf schemes," and united under Balaamism in the World Council of Churches and Vatican II.
William Branham was the antitype of Joshua; His Message restored the apostolic faith and finished the mystery of God, introduced Christ's second Coming and called the wise and foolish out of Babylon into the eternal land of the millennium.
Millions have studied the Revelation of the Seven Seals, witnessed the Shekinah, miraculous signs, healings, Luke 17:28-30, Hebrews 4:12 and 13:8 first hand: still they don't believe and are crucifying the Son of God afresh unto themselves (Hebrews 6:6).
Jude 11, "Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Korah." Denominational idolatry.
Brother Branham said, "How the seed falls into the ground, and it rots, to bring forth life again. Looks like, if it was ever going to bring forth life, it'd be when it's in its perfect shape. If life was ever in it, then why wouldn't it just come forth? Put it in the ground, the life spring forth. Why does all that's around that life, all that's around that germ that no man can find, how is it that everything material around that germ has to die? So it can spring forth in a new life. But everything around it must also die and rot, before it can spring forth life."
"So is it with an individual. As long as there is any human injections, human ideas, then God's germ of life, the Holy Spirit, cannot work. You cannot be healed as long as there is just a fraction somewhere, that it's not rotten yet; it's got all the human elements, all the scientific ideas, all the "days of miracles is passed," so-called. All that has to, all, not only die, but rot, then from there grows the germ of Life unto a new life. That's the only way it can grow."
"That's the reason we don't get what we ask for. We try to take, with us, so much of our own ideas."
"That's the reason the Lutheran church couldn't advance no farther than it did, the Pentecostals and the rest; 'cause they inject, by a bunch of theologians, "This oughtn't to be this way. This is for another day. And This was for that." There it stays. It cannot grow to that perfect image of Christ until every Word of God is received into you, and then you become that Word. It's like the seed that went in the ground" (A Paradox, #65-0117, p. 14:101-114; Matthew 4:4).
We're looking translation power by the 'third pull'.
The Prophet said, "Father, I believe that it's ordained of You, that it should be this way, that we might understand what birth and resurrection mean, what it means to be borned again. First things first, we have to die in order to be borned again. You never change Your law. The law of nature still provides. The law of nature is that any seed must first die in order to be borned again. And we realize that we too must die in order to be born again. And so many, Lord, today, I pray You forgive us, so many has depended upon certain experiences they had, that they claim they're borned again. But the fruits of their life shows that they were brought on the wrong tree" (You must be Born Again, p. 42:197).
We must have an exodus out of PART-Word into the fullness in the ongoing rapture in order for full adoption, dying to our human reasoning that inhibits faith. The 'third pull' is your promise: "If you have faith as [pure as] a grain of mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing will be impossible to you" (Matthew 17:20).
Ephesians parallels Joshua. Ephesians 1:1-5, "Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus [called out, separated from the world and filled with the Spirit], and to the faithful in Christ Jesus [wherever they are]: grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places [the celestial realm where God sees us in our celestial, angel or theophany bodies which have the appearance of our glorified form (I Corinthians 15:36-56; Romans 8:28-39)] in Christ: according as God has chosen us in Christ before the foundation of the world, before the "beginning" of creation Genesis 1:1)] that we should be holy and without blame before God in love: having predestinated us to be adopted [recognized, placed and revealed as His own children] by Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of God's kind intent".
I Peter 1:19-20, "You were purchased with the precious lifeblood of Christ, like that of a flawless and spotless lamb Who was foreordained for this purpose before the foundation of the world, but was made manifest in these last times for your sake".
Revelation 17:8, "The beast [Devil-incarnate last pope] that you saw was, and is not; [one pope will die and another will take his place. He was; he was not; he was; he was not; was; he was not], and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit [he has no foundation in God's unchanging Word], and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the Book of Life [the genealogy of the first Adam] from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is".
Revelation 13:8, "And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship Rome's Devil-incarnate pope, whose names are not written in the Lamb's Book of Life [the genealogy of the last Adam] slain from the foundation of the world".
Before creation and time the Attributes of the unchanging God included justice and mercy, faithfulness, love, healing and salvation, but as He was self-existent, living alone with His eternal thoughts there was no way He could express His love, no sickness requiring healing, no sinners seeking salvation, no light, no darkness, atoms or molecules whereby He might express His Attributes and gather glory to Himself. And God was lonely. But knowing the future and every living soul that would ever be (Genesis 1:27), foreknowledge told Him all who would receive His grace and worship Him by faith. His immutable Law demands "life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burning for burning, wound for wound, and stripe for stripe" (Exodus 21:23-25), but only a worthy, capable and willing near KINSMAN can meet sin's price. He foresaw that "all would sin, and come short of the glory of God," but if He was made sinless flesh He could pay sin's price, take back his life, and receive worship.
Before creation He chose you and placed your name as elect in the Lamb's Book of Life (John 15:16). Seeing the deceitfulness of Satan, and what he would do with antichrist, that fine, cultured religious superman who would deceive the very elect if that were possible. Only those whose names were placed in the Lamb's Book of Life will not be deceived.
Jacob's blessing in Genesis 49 prophesied the precise location of the allotments of each tribe in the Promised Land. Two hundred and fifty years later Genesis 14 - 19 describe how Joshua conquered and divided the land between the tribes according to the inspiration of Jacob.
Approximately three thousand five hundred years later, Jesus Christ revealed the divisions of His mystic Body, the Church, from Pentecost, the seven Church Ages of PART-Word, to this present holy convocation of the Capstone Bride to His Prophet, William Branham. He signified the revelation to John when he was in the Spirit in the Lord's Day which will commence with "the great voice of [the Seventh] Trumpet" at the close of the Gentile dispensation (Revelation 1 – 3). Between 1960 and 1965 Brother Branham expounded these mysteries, showing us by inspiration how the Body was divided according to "the present Truth" revealed by the angel to each of these nine dispensations so that Christ's end-time Bride would know those parts of the Body that were fulfilled, recognize her position in the Body and not be confused like our non-elect Church Age cousins who are trying to impersonate the Word for a day gone by.
The adoption of a son is not introducing an orphan into the family of God, but the placing or recognition of a son as mature, proven and responsible such that his word or 'third pull' has the same authority as that of his father, or his Brother Jesus. It might justly be said our Lord's bar mitzvah took place in His thirteenth year in the Temple at Jerusalem where Joseph and Mary found Him "sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. And all that heard Him were astonished at His understanding and answers".
Then at the age of about thirty years He was baptized by John in the River Jordan, "and the heavens were opened, and John saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on Him; and a voice out of heaven said, This is My beloved Son in Whom I am pleased [to dwell in]" (Matthew 3:16-17). Once again on Mount Transfiguration A Voice out of the Cloud said, "This is My beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased, listen to Him" (Matthew 17:5). Jesus' resurrection and glorification was His "full adoption" for which we await.
Galatians 4:1-7, "As long the heir is a child, he does not differ from a servant although he is the owner of everything; but he is under tutors and governors until the time appointed by the father. So also we, while we were children, were held in bondage under the elemental things of the world. But when the fulness of the time came, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, in order that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might be recognized, adopted or placed as God's sons."
"And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, Father, Father. Therefore you are no longer a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ". nl1014.htm
