Bible Believers' Newsletter 529
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
For some years we have maintained an earthquake monitor on the main page of our Website. The incidence of earthquakes worldwide has increased exponentially since the revelation of the Seven Seals as Earth struggles to cleanse herself for the Millennium. The resurrection of Jesus Christ and the Old Testament saints recorded in Matthew 27:50-53 set the pattern for the resurrection of the Church that sleeps in the dust and the body change and translation of Christ's end-time Bride.
The earthquake in China that has destroyed towns and cities, burying thousands of children underneath collapsed school buildings in a land whose policy permitted only one child per couple, has left five millions heartbroken and homeless. This should remind us of the lateness of the hour and steel us for the catastrophic devastation that will occur worldwide at the second crucifixion just weeks before the resurrection and translation of Christ's Bride.
This week we will speak on our call to oneness in Spiritual fidelity with our Husband, Christ the Word; this demands a total separation from unbelief since our translation like the resurrection of the Church Age saints is dependent upon a seamless identification with Christ by faith. We have not seen Him, but we have felt Him. We know Him now as much as our limiting senses permit. But one day it will be face to face. He came at the end of the Laodicean Church Age and partial realization is being made perfect realization, completed realization through the fullness of the Word. We have been looking through a glass darkly, but soon it will be face to face. We have been going from glory to glory, but soon it will be right in the glory; and in His glory we will shine. We shall be like Him, wondrously like Him, Jesus our Saviour divine! Isn't that wonderful? We are complete in Him. That is true. He would not lie to us about that. But one day we will be changed in the atoms. We will put on immortality. We will be all swallowed up in life. Then we will realize realization.
Loose yourself from the love the world and the things in the world. Do not give heart space to earth's vain riches but seek to gain the heavenly treasuresthey will never pass away. Commit your unbelieving loved ones to the Lord, and hold the Token over them that they may be sanctified in your presence. The survivors of the Sichuan earthquake have lost all that was familiar and dear but they have worldwide empathy and government support. In the aftermath of tectonic devastation Christ's Bride will receive worldwide enmity, derision from family and erstwhile friends, and official persecution. Order your priorities, change your lifestyle and prepare yourself in your heart.
Brother Branham said, "Now, the first thing happens when we're resurrected. . . The ones who are a-living will just still remain. The resurrection will set in first, the resurrection of those that are asleep. There'll be a wakening time, and those who are asleep in the dust now, not those that are asleep in sin, 'cause they sleep right on. They don't awake for another thousand years. But those who are sleeping in the dust will be awakened first, and these corruptible bodies will put on incorruption in the rapturing grace of the Lord. And then we'll all get together. And when they begin to get together, then we who are alive and remain shall be changed. These mortal bodies will not see death, but just of a sudden, there'll be like a sweep go over us, and you're changed. You're turned back like Abraham was, from an old man to a young man, from an old woman to a young woman. What's this sudden change? And after a while you're traveling like a thought, and you can see those who are already resurrected. Oh, what an hour. Then we'll gather with them and then be caught up with them to meet the Lord in the air" (C.O.D., p. 934-58).
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.

Pentagon's 'Second 9/11'
August 10, 2006 In the month following last year's 7/7 London bombings, Vice President Dick Cheney is reported to have instructed USSTRATCOM to draw up a contingency plan "to be employed in response to another 9/11-type terrorist attack on the United States." Implied in the contingency plan is the certainty that Iran would be behind a Second 9/11.
This "contingency plan" uses the pretext of a "Second 9/11," which has not yet happened, to prepare for a major military operation against Iran, while pressure was also exerted on Tehran in relation to its (non-existent) nuclear weapons program. What is diabolical in this decision of the US Vice President is that the justification presented by Cheney to wage war on Iran rests on Iran's involvement in a hypothetical terrorist attack on America, which has not yet occurred:
The plan includes a large-scale air assault on Iran employing both conventional and tactical nuclear weapons. Within Iran there are more than 450 major strategic targets, including numerous suspected nuclear-weapons-program development sites. Many of the targets are hardened or are deep underground and could not be taken out by conventional weapons, hence the nuclear option. As in the case of Iraq, the response is not conditional on Iran actually being involved in the act of terrorism directed against the United States. . .
Cheney's proposed "contingency plan" did not focus on preventing a Second 9/11. The Cheney plan is predicated on the presumption that Iran would be behind a Second 9/11 and that punitive bombings could immediately be activated, prior to the conduct of an investigation, much in the same way as the attacks on Afghanistan in October 2001, allegedly in retribution for the alleged support of the Taleban government to the 9/11 terrorists. It is worth noting that one does not plan a war in three weeks: the bombing and invasion of Afghanistan had been planned well in advance of 9/11. . .
The announcement on August 10 by the British Home Office of a foiled large scale terror attack to simultaneously blow up as many as ten airplanes, conveys the impression that it is the Western World rather than the Middle East which is under attack. Realities are twisted upside down. The disinformation campaign has gone into full gear.

Comment: The George W Bush administration plans to launch an air strike against Iran within the next two months, an informed source tells Asia Times Online, echoing other reports that have surfaced in the media in the United States recently. Two key US senators briefed on the attack planned to go public with their opposition to the move, according to the source, but their projected New York Times op-ed piece has yet to appear.

The Rothschild Octopus
Although ever since World War II the Rothschild departments for the creation of public opinion have been assuring people that the power of the Rothschilds today is insignificant and that they will be remembered by their vineries in France or gardens and philanthropy in Great Britain; reality projects a completely different picture. Building upon the foundations laid by their fathers and grandfathers, the present-day descendants are completing a mission that has lasted for several centuries. Today, the Rothschilds are the steam engine of a Khazar train heading for Russia and the vast expanses of Siberia. This train, which runs through the Balkans, is to be boarded with armies of the newly recruited members of NATO, which will then fight for the Rothschild empire. . .
On the way to their goal the Rothschilds bring into play reforms, transitions, shock therapies, elections, referendums, secessions, revolutions, civil wars, military interventions. . . Nations are offered "freedom", "democracy" and voluntary enslavement in return for their independence and resources! The alternative is sanctions, isolation and bombing!

Launch of the Australasian Civil Military Police Network
May 23, 2008 The Parliamentary Secretary for Defence Support, the Hon. Dr. Mike Kelly AM MP, today welcomed the launch of the Australasian Civil Military Police Network (ACMPN) in Canberra.
The ACMPN is an initiative of the Australian Homeland Security Research Centre and aims to assist in strengthening relationships between civil and military personnel to support preparation for operational responses to natural disasters and emergencies overseas. The network will consult widely through online forums and events which will engage a range of civil and Government stakeholders.
In launching the network Dr. Kelly said, "The concept for this initiative is consistent with the Government’s plans to improve coordination between non Government and Government agencies involved in peace-building, stabilization and reconstruction efforts in response to international emergencies. "The launch of the network also complements a core election commitment to establish an Asia Pacific Centre for Civil-Military Cooperation".
The Asia Pacific Centre for Civil-Military Cooperation will draw upon expertise across Government agencies and the Non Government Organisation sector to help strengthen the effectiveness of Australia's international emergency management capabilities. Full story: minister.defence.gov.au

Total Phone and Email Database proposed in UK
May 19, 2008 The Times of London is reporting a proposal for a massive government database holding details of all phone calls, emails, and time spent on the Internet. This is to be justified as being "part of the fight against crime and terrorism":
"Internet service providers and telecoms companies would hand over the records to the Home Office under plans put forward by officials". . . UK telecoms are already required to keep records of phone calls and text messages for 12 months, accessible by subpoena; the requirement is already slated to expand to records of Internet usage, emails, and VoIP. This new proposal aims to centralize all that information in a single database in the Home Office.

Homeland Security's emerging Immigration Police State
May 21, 2008 Last week, hundreds of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, flanked by helicopters, a trail of SUVs and a convoy of buses, descended on the tiny town of Postville, Iowa. They set up a perimeter around the 60-acre kosher meat-processing plant operated by the global giant Agriprocessors, Inc. and conducted the largest workplace raid in US history. Around 400 people were arrestedmost from Mexico, Eastern Europe and Guatemalarepresenting 40 percent of the plant's workers and 17 percent of the town's population. Warrants for another 300 were issued. . . Full story: alternet.org
Orthodox Jewish Youths burn New Testaments
Orthodox Jews set fire to hundreds of New Testaments in the latest act of violence against Christian missionaries in the Holy Land. Or Yehuda Deputy Mayor Uzi Aharon said missionaries recently entered a neighborhood in the predominantly religious town of 34,000 in central Israel, distributing hundreds of New Testaments and missionary material.
After receiving complaints, Aharon said, he got into a loudspeaker car last Thursday and drove through the neighborhood, urging people to turn over the material to Jewish religious students who went door to door to collect it. "The books were dumped into a pile and set afire in a lot near a synagogue," he said. . . "I certainly don't denounce the burning of the booklets," he said. "I denounce those who distributed the booklets". . .
Earlier this year, the teenage son of a prominent Christian missionary was seriously wounded when a package bomb delivered to the family's West Bank home went off in his hands. Last year, arsonists burst into a Jerusalem church used by Messianic Jews and set the building on fire, raising suspicions that Jewish extremists were behind the attack. No one claimed responsibility, but the same church was burned down 25 years ago by ultra-Orthodox Jewish extremists.

Identification by Faith
Jesus prepared His disciples for His death, burial, resurrection and ascension, assuring them of His abiding Presence with them and those who would believe on Him through their revelation of His Word. He prepared them for His ministry in the Office of Son of God wherein He would not be physically present with them, but His indwelling Presence would be physically and visually vindicated by the continuation of His miraculous works ministered through their faith.
John 14:12-14, 18-20, "Truly, I assure you, He who believes in Me will also do the works that I do; and more than these, because I go to the Father. And whatsoever you ask Him in My Name, I will do it so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. I will do whatever you ask in My Name. . . I will not abandon you as orphans: I will come to you. In a little while the world will no longer see Me; but you will see Me, for I will live again, and you will live also. At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you".
The day you receive the revelation of the Word for your hour is the day you "see" Him . . . by faith. On that day you will realize what the world is not given to understand. Jesus did not even pray for the world, He prayed for God's elect whom the world hates (John 17:9-23). As the Father sent Jesus into the world as a witness to reconcile the elect to the Word and condemn those who are reprobate, so Jesus has sent us. The revelation that God and man are one reconciles the elect to God by bringing them into oneness by agreement with His Word.
Philippians 2:5-11, "Our attitude should be like that of Christ, who though He was God manifest He did not demand and cling to His rights as God, but made Himself of no reputation. Taking the disguise of a bondslave and becoming like men He humbled Himself even further, going so far as to die a criminal's death on the cross. Yet it was because of this that God raised Him up to the heights of heaven and gave Him a Name which is above every other name: that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow in heaven and on earth, and under the earth, and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father" (Revelation 5:8-14).
Jesus is the firstfruits of all who will be given eternal Life. The revelation of your oneness with God through faith with the Token on display is your personal vindication of election. "At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you." This realization of your union with the revealed Word, which is the mind of God, is the moment of your new birth and the surety He will honour your word as He honoured Jesus' Word because you are of one mind (John 17:21-26; I Corinthians 1:10; 2:12-16).
Intellectually we believe and accept these things, but we need to rest and come to perfect realization. Lay aside the urge to convince yourself of your election once again by answered prayer, healings, etc., and walk by identification in the faith, not by sight. Rest in faith as Ruth did while she waited for Boaz to complete his work as her kinsman redeemer, and wait patiently until Brother Branham has poured out of the Seventh Vial that will produce the earthquake (Revelation 16:17-21). Be like Jesus who though He was equal or at one with God, suffered Himself to be humbled and walked in faith until faith was realized in His resurrection and elevation above every other name (John 2:19; Ephesians 1:9-23).
Jesus was not a showman and neither are His Brethren. We have need of trusting patience and are called to walk in the Light of the present Truth under preeminence so that the Token is automatically displayed. Our works should be Christ willing and doing His good pleasure, not us trying to reassure ourselves of our authority, for those who are not born-again can be anointed by the same Spirit and impersonate many of the wonderful works of God and be lost. In II Peter 1:1-11 we are instructed to put on the virtues of the Divine nature, "For if you possess these qualities increasingly, they will render your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ both active and fruitful, while he who lacks these things is blind, short-sighted, and has forgotten that he was purged from his former sins. Therefore, brethren, be the more zealous to make your calling and election sure: for if you do this you will never stumble or fall away: for so an entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ will be liberally provided for you".
If you see the present Truthwhat Jesus is doing now, rest assured that so long as you are a prisoner of Jesus Christ like Paul, "abiding in the Vine, . . He will do whatever you ask in His Name" because you will speak only under inspiration. Jesus has promised to furnish our needs. Our assurance must rest upon faith alone, not rabbit-out-of-the-hat miracles that will pass away. Once the Seventh Trumpet and Sixth Seal signal the end of the dispensation, the saints will be hunted and persecuted by the world church system reunited with the state, then you will need faith to exercise the 'third pull,' not for psychology, but to provide your necessities. God's purpose in this is to raise your faith to receive translation grace.
Brother Branham applied the fullness of John 14:20 to the holy convocation of this fiftieth day of the Pentecostal Feast when the revelation made known through the "shout" of the end-time Message has restored man back to communion with God like Adam before the Fall. Once His Church is back in speaking conditions the latter rain of the Holy Spirit will flow through His people for the "third pull" in "the great and dreadful day of the Lord."
In order to manifest the Word you must be the Word. You must know God and His elect are oneyou and God are one! Not by psychology or compulsion to conform, but faith flowing through you to fulfill His threefold purpose: God in Christ, Christ in His Bride, and all of us together restored in unity back to Eden in the new heaven and new earth.
Christ's Church is built on the revelation that you and Christ are one in God (John 17:21-26; Colossians 3:3). This oneness is the antitype of the natural husband and wife wherein she trusts and obeys his word. "He who believes in Me will also do the works that I do; and more . . ." As our physical Head raised His physical body from the grave, the Spiritual Body of His saints will follow their Spiritual Head in the resurrection. Christ was the firstfruits, His Body will follow His 'parousia' Coming, which commenced in March, 1963, and so the first resurrection is very close.
You must be completely yielded and faithful to His Word. As the old husband of the Law had to be dead to Paul's Israelite converts before they could be born-again, our old husbands of denominational creed and traditions must be dead to us or we will be in spiritual adultery, and Christ will not marry an adulteress; He is only marrying a virgin to the Word. So if you are flirting with sabbath days, Jewish fables about chosenness and holocausts, or trinities and catechisms, etc., you are rejecting the Holy Spirit by reasoning against the Word, which is the unforgivable sin.
Sin is unbelief in the revealed Word of God. One word out of place is the kingdom of Satan. Eve placed the world in its present state by doubting one Word, "surely" (Genesis 2:17; 3:4; Matthew 4:4). You must make Christ the anointed Word Husband of your soul which has only one sensefaith or unbelief, and bring the five senses of your spiritconscience, imagination, reasoning, affection and memory, and the five senses of your body, sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell subject to your faith.
To reject the Word of the hour is to reject the Holy Spirit and have your name blotted from the Book of Life. Thus, the mere association of kindhearted people with the true believer might well bring death in return for their kindness. To profess Christianity yet hold humanism or denominational reasoning or anything contrary to the Word of the hour in your heart is to be an adulteress as the natural types the Spiritual
Revelation 17:1-6, "Then William Branham, one of the seven angels who had the Seven Vials, came and said to me (insert your name here, because throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ's end-time Bride to whom the Seventh Angel delivered this Message), Come, I will show you the judgment of Rome, the great harlot seated upon many waters (the multitudes over whom she will govern in Lucifer's soon-coming totalitarian one world government. Daniel 2; 7-12 and Revelation 2; 10; 12-19 instruct us that in her papal incarnation Rome will rule the world unto the consummation): with whom the kings of the earth have committed (spiritual) fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication" (the stimulation of false doctrine is untrue to the revealed Word).
"So he carried me away in the Spirit (of revelation) into the wilderness: and I saw a woman (or church) sit upon a scarlet coloured untamable, venomous beast, (a beast is a power; this prostitute church is controlling the global political power of a revived Holy Roman Empire), full of blasphemous names (Lutheran, Anglican, Presbyterian, Baptist, Methodist, Pentecostal et al), having seven heads and ten horns." The seven heads are the seven hills on which Rome is built; they also signify the seven emperors of Imperial Rome who deified themselves. Her eighth head will be Satan incarnate in the last pope and president of one world government who from his seat in the new temple that will be built in Jerusalem will force the mark of the beast on pain of death. Note, it will be the USA, which is the image of Imperial Rome, and the (once) Protestant churches which are the image to Papal Rome that enforce her edict (Revelation 13:11-18). The ten horns are the ten kingdoms into which Imperial Rome divided; they will "nuke" Rome after she breaks her agreement with the self-styled Jews.
Today the alien-controlled United States which is irredeemably bankrupt and shunned by nations around the world has one asset, a powerful, amoral, blooded military that knows nothing of international law. Lucifer's consortium of Rome and her Jewish Bankster partners will bail out the United States and refinance her currency with gold backing in exchange for the souls of her men. These colonial troops of "the City of London" and the Vatican are "exceedingly brutal and shocking; with its iron teeth and brass claws it devours and tears men apart, trampling others to death beneath its feet" (Daniel 7:19; Luke 21:24; Revelation 11:2).
Brother Branham said, "With the world church system under her Rome will be controlling, and this image (church system) will be obedient to Rome because Rome controls the gold of the world. Thus all the people have to belong to the world church system or be at the mercy of the elements for they cannot buy or sell without the mark of the beast in the hand or head. This mark in the head means they will have to take the doctrine of the world church system which is trinitarianism, etc., and the mark in the hand means to do the will of the world church. With this great power the church systems will persecute the true Bride. This image will try to keep the Bride from preaching and teaching, etc. Her ministers will be forbidden to give comfort and truth to the people who need it. But before the antichrist (in person) takes over this complete world system of churches the true church will be taken away from this world to be with the Lord, God will catch away His Bride for the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 377).
"The [US] federal government's long-term financial obligations grew by US$2.5 TRILLION last year, a reflection of the exploding costs of Medicare and Social Security benefits as more baby boomers reach retirement age. As reported in a USA Today analysis, American taxpayers are on the hook for a record US$57.3 TRILLION in federal liabilities to cover the lifetime benefits of everyone eligible for Medicare, Social Security and other government programs. That's US$500,000 per household. And when the liabilities of State and local governments are added to this, the total rises to US$61.7 TRILLION. That's US5$31,472 per household, more than four times what Americans owe in personal debt and mortgages. This is now front page news on USA Today."
"Congress had nothing to say. Economically, this much is certain. The debt is unpayable, even if Americans who still have any are stripped of all their assets to pay for it. . . In World Factbook, the annual publication of the CIA, Russia's 2007 current account surplus was stated at US$465 billion and China's at US$363 billion. The US current account deficit, says the CIA, was US$987 billion, an amount larger than the total deficits of all (repeat ALL) other countries in the world combined. This is the real global hair raising fact! Who will lend the US US$1 TRILLION . . ? The talk among Gold enthusiasts is that Russia has been a steady buyer of Gold on the marketthrough intermediaries. Russia is itself one of the major world Gold producers" (The Privateer Vol. 604).
The United States and her citizens are Spiritually, and now materially "wretched, miserable, poor, blind, naked and know it not" having fallen into the 1913 trap set by Rothschild who own and run the Federal Reserve Ponzi scheme, and prey to their Judaeo-Roman Catholic false church.
"Not a moment too soon, a group of seven former European heads of state, five former finance ministers, and two former presidents of the European Commission, including former EU Commission head Jacques Delors, former French Prime Minister Michel Rocard, and former German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, have gone public with an open letter to the EU Presidency and the EU Commission. They warn that the systemic collapse of the global financial systema collapse which had been foreseen by "farsighted individuals"brings with it the threat of unprecedented poverty, the proliferation of "failed states," migration of entire populations, and further military conflicts. The financial world, they argue, has accumulated a massive amount of "fictitious capital" (!), with very little improvement for humanity. Among the immediate countermeasures they propose, is creation of a European Crisis Committee, and the convening of a world financial conference to "reconsider" the current international system and the globalized world order (Helga Zepp-LaRouche, The End of Free Trade. Free markets cannot make a mockery of social morality lemonde.fr).
Elements of the Illuminati, "the City," Vatican and Black Nobility must move quickly, perhaps with a nuclear 9/11 in order to prevent these "rebels" and others like them from upsetting their conspiracy.
"And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: and upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS (her once Protestant daughters) AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration".
Far from being the chaste virgin and the Bride of Christ she impersonates by pretending she is queen of heaven, Rome is a cruel harlot whose daughter churches ran away to escape her lewdness, but finally "gathered up teachers who would tickle their ears with words they wanted to hear, and turning away from listening to Bible revelation wandered off into fables" (II Timothy 4:3-4) and were reconciled to their mother. Stand them before a mirror and you will the likeness. In Revelation 13 Jesus calls them the image of the savage, untamable Roman beast. Rome serves a false trinity of gods; her Protestant daughters worship the same trinity. Rome gives a false baptism and infant baptism in three Tithes; so do her daughters. Mother and daughter observe the pagan festivals of Christmas and Easter and substitute confirmation for the baptism in the Holy Ghost. Rome has a nicolaitane priesthood, so do her daughters, and on it goes.
Like Eve, the denominations have substituted human reasoning for headship under revelation with obedience, so their de facto head is the false prophet. The Bride of Christ follows her Head and recognizes no other Headship. The evidence of the new birth is the Token of the Life of Christ living the present Truth through you; the mark of the beast is personal knowledge against faith in God's Word as seen in the first Eve. As the firstfruit of the resurrection the Head is vindicated with eternal Life and the Body must follow the Head because through the invisible marriage union they are Husband and Wife; she is identified in Him because the same Word that raised Him is made Spirit and Life in the individual members of His Bride, vindicating "the Kingdom of God is within you." God and man are made one in you, bringing to pass every promise for your day as it did in His day when the Word and God were made one in the flesh of our Head.
Like Moses and the prophets of the Old Testament, and Jesus and the prophets and apostles of the New Testament, we "declare the whole counsel of God . . . preaching the Message with urgency at all times; when it is convenient and when it is not; to reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine" (II Timothy 4:2). Since Jesus promised "the Spirit of Truth will show you things to come," in addition to God's Word and will for you we declare what Satan and the children of Darkness have done, are doing and will do against you (John 16:13).
Today Jesus is preparing His end-time disciples for the resurrection of the sleeping saints and our translation to glorification without death, burial and resurrection by the revelation of things that are to be. I John 2:15-17, "Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in his heart. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father but of the world. And the world with its lust passes away, but he who does the will of God remains forever".
After the earthquakes sink Los Angeles, split the Mount of Olives and send tidal waves around the world, volcanoeseven on the Moonwill turn the heavens into blood. In this global catastrophe unprecedented since the Great Flood, believers will be hunted and persecuted because our admonition to friends, loved ones and neighbours will be regarded as inciting fear and religious hatred when, worldwide, denominations are the only organizations experienced and equipped to manage large scale humanitarian crises.
The Lord will see that you are separated from every familiar and material support. The time will come when you are regarded as an enemy of the people and may be unable to venture home or even to a restaurant to eat. Where will you sleep? What will you drink, and how will you be clothed? What if you should break a leg? Don't be of doubtful mind, as you are "abiding in the Vine, whatsoever you ask Him in His Name, He will do it so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. . . At that day you will know that Jesus is in His Father and you in Him, and He in you".
This will be your preparation for complete separation and departure from this dying world when time and eternity blend together and we meet the Lord in the Air. Only personal faith can manifest your change in the atoms, and as your faith is often insufficient to cure a common cold, the Lord will place you in a situation of desperation wherein your sole source of aid and succor can only be manifested faith. What Brother Branham called the 'third pull' will manifest in this time of "the manifestation of the Sons of God" when what we say God will do (Romans 8:19).
This will be the time of the latter rain, an outpouring of the Holy Spirit that will bring the Bride under complete preeminence to Her Husband the Word, perfect realization of who she is and experiential exercise of her authority with the spoken Word because she is the Word. This is necessary to elevate faith in you to change this corruptible body to incorruption and to replace your spirit of mortal life with your theophany. Although the Holy Spirit, like the rain, is sent to bring the wheat to maturity, it will fall on the tares and all fleshthe just and the unjust, causing everyone to manifest the life of the seed that was planted. "The wicked shall do wickedly: and none of them shall understand; but the wise will understand" (Daniel 12:10; Matthew 5:42; Hebrews 6:4-8).
This sane, rational, ordered civilization to which we are accustomed will expire the instant an "earthquake of a magnitude unprecedented in human history" sinks Los Angeles and an immense section of earth's crust, "shaking not only the Earth but the heavens also," for in that instant Satan and his demons will be cast from heavenly places. The Devil will incarnate the Pope, and his demons will oppress all whose names were not written in the Lamb's Book of Life from the foundation of the earth (Hebrews 12:26-29; Revelation 16:18; 12:7-17). Everything will be shaken except true revelation (Matthew 16:18; Hebrews 12:27-28; I Peter 1:23-25; Revelation 22:11). Thus persecution will begin immediately because "All non-elect mankind whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world will worship him" (I Thessalonians 2:10-12; Revelation 13:8).
Do not lean to your own understanding imagining you will somehow negotiate a "workaround." Christ's mediation ceased in 1963, yet forty-five years later the majority of Brother Branham's disciplesministers and laymenhave no understanding of this. When God's grace and mercy are withdrawn "The great and dreadful day of the Lord" will commence with Earth "smitten with a curse" in the sinking of Los Angeles (Malachi 4:6); there will never be another soul "saved," Israelite or Gentile. Seven years remain in which He will deal with an election of blood Israelites in Israel, throw Earth toward the Sun causing her oceans to explode and her crust to rupture, pouring fresh lava over her entire surface to erase all evidence of human habitation, and purge the planet in preparation for the thousand year honeymoon of the heavenly Bridegroom with His earthly Bride who "will tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of our feet" (Malachi 4:1-3; Matthew 3:12; Revelation 20:5, 10). nl529.htm
