Bible Believers' Newsletter 590
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we appreciate your fellowship in God's unchanging Word.
Yesterday I spoke with an astute old lady in the doctor's surgery whence the magazines had been removed and patients washed their hands in alcohol in case we spread the dreaded lurgiman-made genocidal swine flu. The lady had detected the lies, noting "overlying symptoms" were related to every death blamed on "swine flu" by officials representing Lucifer's totalitarian one world government, and criminal organizations like the UN and WHO rather than their electors. Psychological propaganda like the egregious claims of unprincipled politicians and corrupt scientists to control climate by a cap-and-trade Ponzi scheme designed to create global poverty, famine and depopulation did not faze this lady. Casualties to date have all died "with" swine flu, eyes, arms and legs; not one has died "of" swine flu, eyes, arms or legs. Alien-owned media controls the unthinking mob with its spin, but according to honest medical experts, even laboratory-made swine flu will not have the potency of natural, seasonal flu, unless and until compulsory inoculation of live viruses transforms this hoax into the genocide planned by the Protocols.
Can one trust a government that experimented on its own people without their knowledge or consent (including providing poor mothers with plutonium-laced baby cereal and monitoring the infants to see how quickly they developed cancer)? Or Baxter International which claims it has just now devised a process whereby it can make swine flu vaccine ahead of its competitors, but filed its patent on swine flu vaccine on August 28 2007? Should mandatory vaccination cause injury or serious side effects, vaccine manufactures, doctors, federal, state and county health departments in the US are immune from prosecution. In other words, you will be stuck with the bill as reported here, here, and in Newsletters 586 and 589 should you fall foul of this conspiracy.
Brother Branham said, "Listen, did you know the Bible predicts that in the last days, that they'll be a germ warfare? That diseases will break out upon the people, and fall on everyone without the baptism of the Holy Spirit? But the Angel who had charge over these plagues was given orders to touch no one on whom the mark was. Why, how much, kind of teachers have we got to be, brethren, to get the church in order to be in that condition? Immune. My arms are sore now, from where the doctors has punched needles to try to inoculate me from yellow fever and so forth. I told them I didn't need it. But they wouldn't listen to me. But I'll tell you what God's going to do. God's got a serum, and it's called the Holy Ghost. And when that serum goes in, it'll inoculate you. Hallelujah, in the last days. . ." (William Branham, God's Provided Way of Healing, #56-0719A; Revelation 6:8; 14:9).
"How we thank Thee, that in this great hour, that when all hopes of mortal life has finished. . . Atomic bombs are laying in hangers, hydrogen bombs, sickness and diseases, germ warfare. . . O God, and everything the way it is, knowing that the Bible said that man would actually rot in their flesh. . . But that Angel was given commission, "Don't you touch any of those! Don't you come near those who has the wine and the oil. Don't touch those who has the Seal of God upon their forehead" (God's Provided Way of Fellowship, #60-0709; Zechariah 14:12; Revelation 14:9).
The world Superpower is administered by liars and international criminals of "the City of London." The Democratic Party has spent over US$1million in court costs, and Obama's Presidential campaign spent over US$800,000 during the Presidential campaign to fight the lawsuit of former Pennsylvania Assistant Attorney General Philip Berg that Obama be required to produce his birth certificate proving he is a natural-born US citizen. Satan is the god of this evil age (Matthew 4:8-9).
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.

Who will investigate the UN-Vatican Connection?
July 14, 2009 The UN has been rocked by scandals involving UN "peacekeepers" who sexually abuse women and children, the failure to protect populations in danger of genocide, and financial corruption. It is an anti-American institution founded by a Soviet spy that is currently headed by a Communist Catholic Priest, UN General Assembly President Miguel D'Escoto, who recently gave a speech at a UN financial conference on the need to protect "Mother Earth."
So when the leader of 1.2 billion Catholics, Pope Benedict XVI, endorsed a "World Political Authority" in his encyclical Caritas in Veritate, it was big news that could only be understood in the context of the growing power and influence of the UN . . . the Pope stated that the goals of this World Political Authority should be "To manage the global economy; to revive economies hit by the crisis; to avoid any deterioration of the present crisis and the greater imbalances that would result; to bring about integral and timely disarmament, food security and peace; to guarantee the protection of the environment and to regulate migration."
Pope Benedict even associated Jesus Christ with the work of the UN, saying that the "search for the right way to order human affairs" is "motivated by the hope drawn from the saving work of Jesus Christ" and "that is why the Church is happy to be associated with the activity of this distinguished organization, charged with the responsibility of promoting peace and good will throughout the earth". . .

Yad Vashem Honor sought for Pius XII
July 2, 2009 A foundation announced plans to nominate Pope Pius XII for the "Righteous Among the Nations" (Goyim or "human cattle") honor traditionally given to non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust. Gary Krupp, Jewish Papal Knight and president of the New York-based Pave the Way Foundation, that promotes interreligious dialogue, affirmed this Wednesday in a statement to ZENIT. He reported that the foundation has the nomination guidelines from the Righteous Among the Nations Department of the Holocaust Museum Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, and will open the case soon. Krupp stated that the foundation has "devoted years to gathering original documentation and video testimony on this controversial papacy and we believe we have uncovered enough pertinent material to now begin to seek the notarized written testimonies to officially begin this judicial procedure [with] Yad Vashem."
The president, himself a Jew, explained, "In most cases of those who have been honored as Righteous Among the Nations, the honoree has directly acted to save individual lives all the while risking his or her own life to do so." He continued: "The actions of Eugenio Pacelli [Pope Pius XII] do not fit this general description. However, we can establish the direct intercession of the Pope to act resulting in saving hundreds of thousands of Jewish lives. "But obviously because of the nature of the high office he held, Pacelli would almost never have been in direct contact with those he saved. . . We can also establish that the life-saving actions of Pacelli were carried out under the threat of death". . . Full story: zenit.org
Comment: Do you see how close we are to the manifestation of Satan incarnate in the eighth beast of Revelation 17:11-18 who will confirm a covenant with the Black Nobility, the so-called Jews and their international banksters (Daniel 9:27)? The Jews and their Judaeo-Roman false church are co- operating to elevate the late (Jewish) Pope Pius XII to sainthood as a "righteous Gentile" according to the fraudulent Noahide laws. This Jewish beatification ensures the Vatican processes a secondary beatification and compensates Rome for making belief in the so-called holocaust/s an element of Dogma.
Liberation through Information!
July 5, 2009 The dissident Germar Rudolf from JVA Mannheim prison has been released. On October 19, 2005, Rudolf was arrested in the United States and deported to Germany. . . In March 2007, the Mannheim District Court sentenced Rudolf to two years and six months in prison for inciting hatred, disparaging the dead and libel.
In the early '90s Rudolf was doing scientific research and appraisal on the Auschwitz gas chamber complex. Since his research results stood in diametric contrast to the commercial and state-ordered doctrine this led naturally to collisions with the government authority. Thus in May 1995 because of his appraisal of the gas chambers in Auschwitz, the regional court condemned Germar Rudolf to 14 months prison. . . Full story: de.altermedia.info
Comment: Israeli soldiers testify about Gaza genocide: cowardly use of human shields and white phosphorus on civilians. Meanwhile, British schools prepare for intensified Holocaust® indoctrination. 300 schools are to become Holocaust® specialists as the City of London continues to hide atrocities of Allied pawns fronting for her pursuit of Lucifer's totalitarian world government with its capital in Jerusalem. Does the curriculum cover all three (3) alleged holocausts, each of six (6) million so-called Jews in just the twentieth century, nine to fifteen million Germans murdered after World War II, and will it continue to ignore the City's holocausts of hundreds of millions of Goyim ("human cattle") in the same period continuing now in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, and soon for Iran at US taxpayer expense?
Superannuation lost to Gore's Hot Air
July 11, 2009 Retirement money that Australian workers are required by law to hand over to the $6 billion VicSuper superannuation fund is being sucked into the Goldman Sachs carbon bubble machine, and Al Gore is coming to town this week to make sure it keeps coming.
VicSuper is a major investor in Gore's Generation Investment Management hedge fund, which is managed by former Goldman Sachs executive David Blood, just one of an array of current and former Goldman Suckers who are orchestrating a bigger financial scam than the Dutch Tulip Bubble of 1637, premised on conning people into believing they can change the weather. . .
Goldman specialises in peddling influence, by making their executives fabulously wealthy, and then deploying them to key positions in government and public service. Well known Goldman Suckers include: former US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, George W. Bush's chief of staff Joshua Bolten, AIG white knight Ed Liddy (who funneled $13 billion of AIG's bail-out money to Goldman), the heads of the Canadian and Italian central banks, the head of the World Bank, the head of the New York Stock Exchange, the last two heads of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Al Gore's partner David Blood, and former Australian Environment Minister and current Opposition leader Malcolm Turnbull. (Is Turnbull's Goldman Sachs connection the reason he is forcing a deal on Rudd's ignorantly-named Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS), onto his very reluctant party room?). . .

QUESTION: I understand that the Book in Revelation 5:1 is the Title Deed and contains the names of the redeemed as well as specifying the steps by which Christ shall recover the inheritance from the Usurper and take actual possession of what He has already purchased in the Kingdom, which is the Millennium. I know that the Seals have been revealed thereby giving access so that the Scroll which they guarded can be completely read by Christ to the Bride only when the events it symbolizes have played out. How come John is already eating the Scroll in Revelation 10? I thought it was just the mystery or Seals that have been revealed.
ANSWER: Throughout the Book of Revelation, the prophet John represents Christ's end-time Bride who will be changed in the atoms and translated without death. The scene is set after Christ's mediation for PART-Word is fulfilled, redemption is over, and the Lord is gathering His elect out from Rome and her (once) Protestant daughters into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Matthew 25:6; Ephesians 1:-23; 4:13; I Thessalonians 4:14-16; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:46-57). By eating the open Scroll John is symbolically becoming one with the revelation of the mysteries of the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10:1-4 as Ezekiel (2 3) was commanded to eat the scroll and become one with his prophecy, as Israel became one with her Pascal Lamb, as the suspect wife (and nominal Christian) becomes one with the blessing or curse in the trial of jealousy (Numbers 5; Revelation 16), and as we signify the fulfillment of John 17:21-26 in us when we observe the Lord's Supper.
A more fulsome response is included with the answer to the next question.
QUESTION: Why did there have to be good people go to hell? They couldn't help who they are, or they would have power to change their hair black from to white. They are not the Potter.
ANSWER: As long as Adam was in fellowship with the visible Tree of Life he had immortality and would have matured into eternal Life had he not broken fellowship by redeeming sinful Eve to himself. As the Son of God Adam bore the attributes of God. Adam was god of this earth with dominion and authority of the spoken Word as Jehovah is God of the universe which He created by the spoken Word. However, when Adam abrogated fellowship for the love of a woman, his sinful wife Eve, he forfeited dominion over his inheritance to Satan. He was still a Son of God, but now he was a fallen Son of God; death held a lien over his physical being and he was cast from Eden's paradise. Sin had severed his physical contact with the Tree of Life, who is Christ, with whom he would no more walk and commune in the cool of the evening, hear his sweet voice, or even see "His back parts" as did Moses.
From now on, except for those rare occasions in which God manifest Himself in the created flesh of Melchisedec; the Man who wrestled with Jacob; He who received Gideon's sacrifice; the One who met Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the fiery furnace, or our virgin-born Kinsman Redeemer, man's fellowship would be by faith and not by sight.
Brother Branham explained, "The Word most definitely sets forth that from BEFORE the foundation of the earth the purpose of God was to share His Eternal Life with man:
Ephesians 1:4-11, "According as He has chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love: having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the beloved. In Whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace; wherein He has abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He has purposed in Himself: that in the dispensation of the fullness of times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in Him: in Whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of Him Who works all things after the counsel of His own will."
Revelation 13:8, "And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him [Satan] whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world."
But that Life could not, and would not, be shared in any other way than through "God manifest in the flesh." This was a part of His eternal and predestinated purpose. This plan was to be to the praise of the glory of His grace. It was the plan of Redemption. It was the plan of Salvation. Now listen closely. "God being a Saviour, it was necessary that He predestinate a man who would require salvation in order to give Himself reason and purpose of being." That is one hundred percent correct and multitudes of Scripture bear it out as does the very pointed verse of Romans 11:36, "For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are ALL THINGS: to whom be GLORY forever. Amen."
Man could not directly come and partake of that Tree of Life in the midst of the garden. That Eternal Life of the Tree had to become flesh first. But before God could raise and save a sinner, He had to have a sinner to raise and save. Man had to fall. The fall which would be caused by Satan, had to have flesh to make fall. Satan had to come through flesh also. But Satan could not come through human flesh to make the fall as would Christ come in human flesh to restore the fallen.
But there was an animal, the serpent, so close to man that Satan could get to that beast and through that beast he could get to human flesh and cause the fall, and inject himself thereby into the human race, even as Jesus would one day come and inject Himself into the human race, into human bodies, even to the extent of a resurrection wherein we would have bodies like unto His glorified one. Thus what God worked out here in the garden was His predestinated plan. And when Satan had brought about that which was necessary to the purpose of God, then man could not get to the Tree Of Life in the garden. Certainly not. It wasn't time. But an animal (animal had caused the fall had it not? let animal life be shed) was taken and his bloodshed and then God had communion with man again.
Then there was to come a day when God would appear in flesh, and by means of His humiliation He would restore fallen man and make him a partaker of that Life Eternal. Once you see this, you can understand the serpent seed and know that it was no apple Eve ate. No, it was the degradation of humanity by intermingling the seed" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 102:2).
"In the original physical creation as we know it today, God made everything in pairs, male and female. There were two chickensrooster and hen. There were two cattle, the cow and the bull. And right down the line. But when it came to man, there was only one. They were not a pair. Adam had been made in the image of God. He was a son of God. As a son of God he could not be tempted and fall. That would be impossible. So God took a byproduct of man to cause the fall. Woman never stepped fresh from the hand of God as a true product of God. She was produced from man. And when God caused her to be brought forth from man she was vastly different from the other females He had created. She was able to be seduced. No other female in creation can be immoral; but the human female may be touched at almost any time. And that weakness in her allowed Satan to seduce her by way of the serpent, and has brought the woman to a very peculiar position before God and His Word. She is the type of all things vulgar, foul and loathsome on the one hand, and on the other hand she is the type of all things clean and beautiful, and holy as the receptacle of the Spirit and blessings of God. On the one hand she is called the whore who is drunk with the wine of her fornications. On the other she is called the Bride of Christ. On one hand she is called Mystery Babylon, the abomination before God; and on the other hand she is called New Jerusalem, our mother. On the one hand she is so foul and wicked and lewd that she is summarily cast into the lake of Fire as the only fit place for her; and on the other hand she is exalted to heaven, sharing the very throne of God as the only place befitting such a queen" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 215:2).
Being righteous and just, God could not arbitrarily make man fall so he placed him on free moral agency with the certainty of reward or punishment (Genesis 2:17) dependent upon his personal decisions whereby he would determine his eternal destiny. As Adam was a spoken Word of God he could not be deceived on the revealed Word of God and disbelieve, but Eve, being a byproduct of Adam and not the Word was made so that she could be deceived and fall.
Once God had a dying people crying for redemption He could manifest Himself as Kinsman Redeemer, but not immediately (Leviticus 25; Ruth). Since man's expulsion from God's Presence in the garden of Eden their communication was to be by grace through faith rather than sight, however when the old world was overcome by sin God destroyed it by the Great Flood, renewed the Adamic covenant with Noah and his family, and began once anew. Unfortunately sin was carried over the waters in the persons of Noah's wife, Ham and his wife. Ham and his son Cush revived pagan trinitarianism and God separated Abram from the whole of humanity, one man in whom he found faith, through whose lineage He would raise a holy nation from among whom would come the virgin-born promised Seed and Redeemer of believers in Adam's race. But the third and fourth generation of Abraham's natural seed either had no respect for the birthright and intermarried with Cain's race, or fell in unbelief, culminating in the days of Moses when the Israelites rejected the Holy Spirit and Abraham's grace Covenant, causing God to blot the names of the adults from the Book of Life and place the nation under judgment by the Law of sin and death.
Now the Law was a schoolmaster to teach Israel to distinguish between clean and unclean, holy and unholy, the reward for obedience and penalty of sin (Galatians 3:25); its ordinances and festivals established shadows of types of good things prophesied to come, and the Tabernacle and its furniture set natural patterns and symbols as examples of future Spiritual outcomes. Sadly the chosen nation became profane in its life and worship, committing physical genocide by miscegenation with the seed of the Serpent, for "God set enmity between the offspring of such misalliances and Adam's race" then as He did in the days of Cain and Noah, and in this day (Genesis 3:15; Matthew 24:37), because Cain and his race are irredeemable, not being in the Book of Life. The children of Israel committed spiritual genocide by idolatry which caused individual names to be removed from the Book of Life. Thus when the year of Jubilee arrived (Isaiah 61:2a; Luke 4:14-21), the Israelites had so corrupted themselves they murdered their Redeemer, and the Lord God turned to "whoever in Adam's race will receive Him" (Acts 15:14; Isaiah 11:10; 56:6-8; Malachi 1:11). Now having redeemed His Gentile Bride, and the apostate churches having rejected Him (Revelation 3:17-20), Jesus Messiah will shortly return and reveal Himself to Israel before He smites the earth with a curse and burns up the works of man with fervent heat.
Following the Fall there was a people sick and afflicted calling for healing, and God was able to manifest His attributes as Healer. Because of the ingress of sin, people were hungry, homeless, and poor, endangered and in need of divine intervention, which allowed God to gather glory by manifesting Himself as their Provider, the God of justice and of mercy.
Man's dominion over earth was given in trust. When He broke God's trust he forfeited his dominion to Satan but the Title Deed was held by God until the time of redemption. Satan could not possess man's inheritance forever because God's Law provides a year of jubilee in which all debts must be discharged and forgiven, and all property restored to its original owner. Until the Redeemer had paid the purchase price of redemption and claimed his possession, God retained the Original Title Deed to the inheritance of Adam and his elect children.
Brother Branham described this Title Deed in the hands of God as an abstract (or summary) searched back to the Creator naming the born-again inheritors of everything Adam and Eve lost (Revelation 5:5-7; The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 86:5-6). This Title Deed is the Book of Life containing the Lamb's Book of Life written by God's foreknowledge before the foundation of the earth. It contains the names of Adam's natural descendants who will be granted into salvation at the White Throne Judgment. Multitudes whose names were once in this Book, such as the adult Israelites who set off on the exodus (Exodus 32:33; Psalm 95:10-11) and the Israelites who rejected the Lord Jesus and put Him to death (Psalm 69:18-28) have been blotted out. And billions will be removed between now and the consummation, because "all who dwell upon the earth will worship Satan, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world" (Revelation 13:8). The Lamb's Book of Life is small section within the Book that records the elect of Adam's racethe Old Testament saints, Christ's Bride, and the 144,000 elect Israelites. Those names can never be removed from the Book as they are God's people redeemed by the last Adam. The names of all the members of Christ's Bride were put in the Lamb's Book of Life before the foundation of the world, but it was sealed as you said, "until the events it symbolizes have played out." Now the revelation of the Seals has revealed whose names were in there, and how they were redeemed in their day. When you catch the revelation of the Seals you have heard your name called from the Lamb's Book of Life.
Revelation 5:1, "And I saw in the right hand of Him that sat on the throne a Book written within and on the backside, sealed with Seven Seals".
Only names are written in the Scroll which was also written on the backside sealed with Seven Seals which contained the mysteries of the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10.
Revelation 5:13, "And I (John, who represents Christ's end-time Bride throughout the Book of Revelation) heard every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and in the sea, and all that are in them, saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, to Him who sits upon the throne, and to the Lamb forever and ever".
When you hear your name called from the Lamb's Book of Life, or begin to receive the revelation of the hour, your heart is being restored to the faith of our Apostolic fathers and the Voice of the Archangel will bring you to maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. It's a revelation, and you share that revelation:
Revelation 10:8-11, "The voice which I [. . . . . . . insert your name] heard from heaven spoke to me again, and said, Go and take the little Book which is open in the hand of [Christ] the Angel who stands upon the sea and upon the earth. And I [. . . . . . . insert your name] went to the Angel, and said, Give me the little book. And He said to me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make your belly bitter, but it shall be sweet as honey in your mouth. And I took the little book out of the Angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. And He said to me, You must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings".

New Ocean forming in Ethiopia
October 1, 2008 The African continent is literally unstitching itself apart just like the sleeve of an old shirt, along the area known as the East African Rift, which traverses it beginning with the southern end of the Red Sea, going through Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Mozambique. The molten lava beneath the Earth's surface makes it thin by constantly pushing against it, and eventually breaks it and tears it apart. As the forces that drive the lava from the sinews of the crust don't encounter much resistance anymore, they keep applying unbelievable pressures, widening the gaps. This will all end about ten million years from today, when the Red Sea's water, that will soon flood the rift, will have completely submerged the region. . . Full story: softpedia.com

Predestinated unto the Adoption of Sons by Jesus Christ to Himself Part VII
Observing communion was the difference between life or death to Israelites about to embark on the exodus from servitude in Egypt to liberty in the Promised Land. Only those under the Token of the shed blood of an innocent lamb were permitted to partake the Passover meal. That blood painted on the lintel or overhang and on the two side posts of the opening to the tents or doorway to the houses of the Israelites with a hyssop, a common weed, was the evidence of a life surrendered in their stead.
Hyssop represents faith which is as common as weeds if you will only hold to it. By faith you flick on a switch in confident anticipation of light or power. By faith you apply pen to paper absolutely certain it will record the words you write. By faith you reach out to the Lord for healing, for provision of necessities and answers to prayer. God hides in humility and reveals Himself in simplicity, which is why He chose neither signs nor wisdom, but "the foolishness of preaching to save those who believe" (I Corinthians 1:17-31). "Faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes by preaching the Gospel of Christ" (Romans 10:17).
Prince or pauper, bond or free, learned or unlearned, Israelite or Gentile, so long as you are in Adam's race you need only apply the hyssop of hearing to receive faith and eternal Life. God hides in humility and reveals Himself in simplicity.
These examples from the Old Testament are shadows and types reflected by the substance of good things to come. Since Revelation 4, 5 and 10:1-7 have been fulfilled there is no blood on the Mercy Seat in the heavenly temple and Christ is no longer interceding for the ignorance of PART-Word. Since we now have the fullness of the Word the Blood is no longer an evidence and we must be under such preeminence that we display the Token of the very Life of Christ, remembering it was NOT the blood that Jehovah required (for this was poured out at the base of the altar, or sprinkled) it was the life given in atonement, and His Life must be displayed in us. Communion means "mutual dialog, or fellowship," and in order to share communion with Christ and fellow Christians of this day we must be baptized into the same division of the Body by the present Truth. In I Corinthians 12 Paul explains that although all born-again Christians are baptized into one Body, we are individuals each with our particular calling; more than this, we are baptized into different divisions of the Body by different measures of Word and Spirit as God has built its membersfeet, legs, torso, chest, lips, eyes and mind through successive dispensations beginning at the day of Pentecost. Consequently, those who were baptized into the Laodicean Age of the twentieth century Pentecostal revival will have a different measure of revelation of God's unchanging Word to we who have been baptized into the Capstone of this present holy convocation. And as the feet perform a different function to a nose, we have seen a greater Light than the Laodiceans were predestinated to see, but we are both equal members and partakers of the Life of the Body.
I John 1:5-7, "God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with Him, when we are not walking in the Light of the present Truth, we lie, and do not live according to the Word of the hour: but if we walk in the Light, as He Himself is in the Light, then we have fellowship with those who are saints, and the Blood of Jesus Christ His Son [which is now the Life of the Word] cleanses us from all sin".
Unless we recognize our day and its Message and become written epistles of that part of the Word we will never be born-again, and as we are now at the very end of the dispensation, will find ourselves impersonating the Word for the Sardis, Philadelphian, Laodicean or some other dispensation that is already fulfilled and whose saints are asleep pending the first resurrection.
As on that first Passover night it was death for any firstborn who was not under the blood of the lamb, during the Church Ages it has been death for those who were not under the Blood, and today it is death for all who are not under the Token. Those outside the Body of Christ are out of communion and fellowship with Christ and disqualified from partaking the Lord's Supper. Jesus' prayer in John 17:21 is that we may be at one or in agreement with Him, for Amos 3:3 asks, "How can two walk together unless they are agreed [on the Word]"?
As it was in Egypt, it is now death not to partake the Lord's Supper, and death to approach the Lord's Table unworthily. I Corinthians 11:27-30, "Whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the Body and Blood of the Lord. (That is, the unpardonable sin, "Crucifying to themselves the Son of God afresh, and putting Him to an open shame" Hebrews 6:6). But let a man examine himself carefully before eating the bread and drinking from the cup. For he who eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks to his own condemnation, not discerning the Lord's Body (which is His Bride). For this reason many of you are [spiritually] weak and sickly, and some have died".
Those who, like the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church take the bread without the wine, or the wine without the bread, communicate "unworthily" and are "guilty of Christ's body and blood" for they disobey His express command to partake of both. If we do not partake of the sacramental symbol of the Lord's death worthily, we share in the guilt of His death. Very soon there will be two classes of people: those who have the Seal of God, and those with the mark of the beast. Jesus said the two spirits will be so alike, only the elect will not be deceived, "and all the non-elect upon earth will worship the beast" (Matthew 24:24; Revelation 13:8).
The Israelites were secure under the blood and the Lord spared their firstborn with the birthright, a type of election, but the firstborn of the Egyptians and unbelieving Israelites out from under the blood were struck dead, as were the firstborn of their animals. And the election is off for all outside the Body of Christ in this day. The Death Angel flying over the land will soon cast those uncircumcised in heart and ears, that is, not born-again and sealed into Christ, into the tribulation where they will die as martyrs and thus maintain their names on the Book of Life and their salvation, or perish.
Exodus 12:43-49 informs us no physical Serpent seed (Heb. 'Zuwr'), no mamzer or anyone alien in every respect (Heb. 'Nokriy'), outsider or itinerant day labourer may partake of the Passover; but purchased slaves who have been circumcised and racially identical strangers (Heb. 'ger') who are circumcised may participate. This confirms that only those who are baptized into the Body, clad in the whole armour of God, shod with the Gospel and separated from the world are immune from the Death Angel (John 3:18; Revelation 13:8). The Israelites likewise were to eat their Passover lamb in readiness for flight to their Promised Land, having their robes girt up, their shoes (which are not worn indoors in the East) on their feet, and their walking stick in their hand. We too must be in desperation to make our election and calling sure for the end-time began in 1963 with the revelation of the Seals, reservations are restricted and our flight will not be delayed.
After Israel's deliverance from Egypt, her people were to be tested by God to prove who truly possessed faith in His Word of promise that He would take them to Canaan land, that He would deliver them from the Serpent's seed, and who, relying upon their own abilities and resources would disbelieve, murmur against God, lose heart and retreat when confronted with obstacles. At once Israel was pursued by the Egyptian Superpower and trapped on Nuweiba beachthe Red Sea before them and barren hills behind them. At Marah the water was bitter: in the Wilderness of Sin they murmured against the Lord so He sent them manna and quail. At Rephidim they complained that God had led them and their cattle into the desert to die of thirst so He brought water from the Rock in Horeb; then the Amalekites attacked them.
God wanted Israel to be His own personal possession above all other nations, but He was looking for an obedient people who would come under preeminence. He was looking for character, which is formed through trials and suffering. Character is a VICTORY, not a gift. "And all who desire to live a godly life in Christ shall suffer persecution" (II Timothy 3:12).
After their victory over the Amalekites, Moses led Israel to Mount Sinai where he had received his commission, for God had promised: "When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will serve Me on this Mountain" (Exodus 3:11-12). Moses had preached and called Israel out of Egypt, and God had appeared to the people in the Pillar of Fire and Cloud before the true Message of the Commandments were revealed to vindicate his Commission and the calling he said he received when the Shekinah spoke from a burning bush. That same Pillar of Fire appeared at Brother Branham's birth; it manifest above him as a Star seen by thousands at the Ohio River and said, "As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of Christ, your Message will forerun the second coming of Christ." In his childhood God called from a whirlwind saying, "Don't you never smoke or drink or defile your body in any way. There'll be a work for you to do when you get older." Then it appeared over Sunset Mountain and said, "Go back to your home to the East, right away, and bring those Seven Seals where there's seven mysteries, for the complete Word is revealed now in these seven mysteries." But before the revelation of his true Message of the Seven Seals he had preached, calling God's people out from denominationalism.
Do you see the parallel? The same Pillar of Fire that spoke with Moses and Paul who wrote the Bible has been sent to Brother Branham to reveal It. The grace of God, the unchanging God, fulfilling the promises of Matthew 28:20, "Lo, I am with you always"; fulfilling John 14:12, "The works that I do, shall you do also"; fulfilling Luke 17:28-30, "In the last days the Son of man will be revealed"; and Malachi 4:5-6, "Behold, I send you Elijah the prophet, and he will restore the heart of God's children back to the faith once delivered to their apostolic fathers."
When God announced His conditional Covenant with Israel, Moses brought the people "out of the camp to meet God . . . and when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place." The Lord descended in Fire and called Moses to the top of the mount where He declared the Ten Commandments, directions concerning the Altar, various laws and ordinances, the three annual compulsory feasts, and the promise of the Covenant Angel, Christ, with blessing if they obey Him. And the people said, "We will do all the Words which the Lord has said," so Moses wrote out the Words, sprinkling the people and the Covenant with the blood of a burnt offering (Exodus 19:1 23:8).
Moses returned to the mountaintop where God gave him instructions for the tabernacle and its furniture, the separation of priests, and after forty-days, stone tablets containing the Ten Commandments written with the finger of God. But when he descended, Moses discovered Israel had broken their Covenant and turned to idolatry and fornication. This is the condition in which God found the church when Brother Branham descended Sunset Mountain to restore God's unconditional Covenant which had been denominated through the Ages, restricting God to human reasoning and man's limited understanding of the PART-Word for a day gone by. Jesus mused, "When the Son of man comes, will He find faith on the earth"? The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form, but carnal reasoning had become idolatry and Laodicea put Christ out of the churches that bear His Name (Revelation 3:17-20).
Israel was condemned, and God would have blotted the nation from the Book of Life had Moses not stood in the breach so an election from the next generation might live to enter the Promised Land (Exodus 32:30-35). When her denominations rejected Christ's first Coming, God turned from the nation but Christ stood in the breach and interceded so that the Gospel might call an election out from all of Adam's race. At the close of Laodicea Brother Branham stood in the breach between the end of the Church Ages and the rejected Seals to indict the world church system and call an election out from Rome and her apostate (once) Protestant daughter churches into the Capstone. And when grace ends two Hebrew prophets will stand in the breach for three and a half years to introduce the Son of man to 144,000 elect Israelites as their King with His Queen, fulfilling Daniel's Seventieth Week and ushering in the Millennium.
Notice that as "the two tables of the Testimony were written on both their sides" the Scroll of Redemption was "written within and on the backside, and sealed with Seven Seals" (Exodus 32:16; Revelation 5:1). And as Christ was palpable to Adam's five senses in the garden of Eden, God's Word on tables of stone was visible and its import explicit, so for any Levite able to read there was no mystery to be understood, whereas our Message is not of works but faith, and "no man either in heaven or on earth or under the earth, was worthy to open the Scroll of Redemption or look into it." The writing within the Scroll records the names of God's redeemed, however it could not be read because the Scroll was sealed with Seven Seals, which are the mysteries of the Seven Thunders explaining how the saints were redeemed by their faith in the Message of the "angel" to their Age, and who they are.
When Moses saw the naked Israelites worshipping the golden calf, he cast the Tablets of the Law to the ground and broke them physically as Israel had broken them spiritually. God made Moses restore the written Word (Exodus 34:27-28). When God saw the Gentile church materially rich and in need of nothing, He said, "You are spiritually wretched and miserable, bankrupt of faith, blind to the Gospel, and naked of the Blood," and He made Brother Branham restore the apostolic faith through the Spoken Word of the Voices of the Seven Thunders that Daniel and John had been forbidden to write but told to seal until the time of intercession for the PART-Word saints was "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" (Revelation 10:5-7).
With the traitor at the table, and death present before His eyes, Jesus and His disciples shared their last meal before He was offered, then He instituted the Communion, to commemorate His upcoming death. After they had sung a hymn Jesus communed with His disciples as they walked to the Mount of Olives, foretelling certain events that would take place that night. Having overcome the world by bring His mortal senses under pre-eminence to the will of God he was confronted by Judas who arrived leading a band of thugs from the chief priests, Scribes and Sanhedrin, and betrayed Jesus with a kiss. The other eleven forsook the Lord who was to be tested by God before the Sanhedrin and Roman Superpower of that day. We too will be tested now in this life and by the Judaeo-Roman Superpower in the manifestation of the Sons of God.
Testing starts when you become a Christian and your friends denominational disagree with and forsake you. Hebrews 12:8, "If God does not punish you with a view to correction when you need it, as other fathers punish their sons, then you are bastards and not God's Sons." And because we are Sons, we will be despised and rejected by the world after the earthquake sinks Los Angeles and we warn loved ones against the evil world church system, telling them not receive her doctrine or do her service, for although this will mean martyrdom it will preserve their salvation.
God did not spare Jesus Messiah, and He will not spare you from testing and chastisement. It was after He had overcome in Gethsemane on the mount of Olives, sweating great drops of blood to the ground as He wrestled against conscience, reasoning, imagination, memory and affection until He resolved, "Not My will, but Thine be done," that He became Lord. He overcame and paid sin's price for us. We overcome by getting into the Overcomer by grace through faith.
We observe the Lord's Supper having salvation and eternal Life in remembrance of our Lord Jesus Christ, present in Spirit, with thanksgiving for that finished work whereby we were crucified in Him and can never come into condemnation but have passed from death into Life and are sealed to the day of our "full adoption".
There was no salvation or adoption in the life of bulls and goats or Israel's Pascal lamb, because animals are not kin to man and therefore only pointed to a coming Kinsman who was able, worthy and willing to pay our debt of sin. Being a man, Jesus had a soul that could return upon and identify with the faith of penitents who believed in and identify with His Life such that He makes it their own. An animal is simply flesh and mortal spirit, so when it dies its spirit goes to ground like your mortal spirit, and its body returns to dust like your body. Not having a soul, that is the end of him, which is why we may kill and eat animals. God made provision to manifest Himself in mortal flesh to pay redemption's price. He was worthy being virgin born without human male instrumentality he had no association with the original sin, whereas every other being since Adam is born in sin, conceived in iniquity, and comes into the world speaking lies (Romans 3:9-18).
Man tends to be independent of God and self-sufficient with a "can do" attitude. Only as a last resort does he go to God in prayer for His needs, possibly having little faith to which God can respond. But if he prays ahead of time he doubts God will answer. After Adam crossed from immortality into time our father hid from God, but God called Adam and in grace He calls to all of Adam's children. Our nature before regeneration is that of a sinner we were not seeking God. He found you, and He found me. The choice is ours to respond or ignore His Voice.
The last sermon Christ preached before His death was Communion, and Brother Branham's last sermon was Communion. As He taught in the Synagogue, Jesus stated fearlessly, "He who believes on me has eternal Life. I am the Bread of Life. Your fathers ate manna in the wilderness and every one of them is blotted from the Book of Life and LOST. . . The Judeans argued, "How can this Man give us His flesh to eat?" Jesus said, "In all earnestness I assure you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink His blood, you have no eternal Life in you. . ." (John 6:47-59).
Before we observe the Lord's Supper we must be born-again and in a hundred percent agreement with the Word, which is why we "tarry for one another" to give Brethren opportunity to first confess and ask forgiveness of one another or of the Church should they feel they have brought a reproach, lest they fail to discern the Body of the Lord and bring themselves under judgment. When we partake the elements of unleavened bread made by holy hands and wine crushed by holy hands or feet, we signify that we are at one with the Word and Spirit of God, and hence at one with the Lord's Body (John 17:21-26). The Lord's Supper is taken in the evening after any pot luck communal "love feast," not as a meal, but in remembrance of what Jesus has accomplished for us. This memorial is not for the profane, for unbelievers, unregenerate children, denominational believers or anyone who is not born-again and of a clear conscience concerning the Lord's Body.
Exodus 12:9-10, "Do not eat it raw, or boiled in water, but roasted with fire; its head and legs with its inner parts. Do not eat any of it the next day; whatever remains until the morning you shall burn with fire".
The whole lamb was roasted with Fire (signifying the Holy Ghost). The burnt offering is symbolical of Christ offering Himself, one Man, under pre-eminence in the will of God to glorify Him at all costs to Himself. A portion of Word and Spirit was allotted to each Age so that whatever tradition that remains from the previous Church Age must be burned with fire lest it pollute the new Message and impede the baptism with the Holy Ghost. One had to die to Luther's Sardis Church Age to be born into the Wesley's Philadelphian Church Age, and one had to die to the Philadelphian Age to be born-again in Laodicea. Now one has to die to the Pentecostal Ageburn it with fire so that you do not pollute our new Message with man-made traditions of the past (Romans 7). Since the revelation of the Seven Seals we have the fullness of the Word: no one can be born-again outside this Message because Christ is no longer a Mediator for PART-Word (I Corinthians 13:10).
Brothers sometimes misconstrue God's Word, taking the "letter" without understanding by the "Spirit." I Corinthians 11:26 says, "As often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you show the Lord's death until He comes," yet certain Brethren in the circle of this Message having recognized Christ's 'parousia' Coming in 1963 and His Presence with us today, overlook the fact Paul and Brother Branham command us to observe this memorial until His physical or 'erchomai' Coming, and teach that the Lord's Supper is fulfilled because He has come.
Paul and Brother Branham taught the New Testament by following the types and shadows from the Old. The showbread or "bread of the Presence" was in the Sanctuary, not in the Holy of Holies (Hebrews 9:1-8) and renewed every sabbath on the table before the Lord (Leviticus 24:5-8): consequently, the Lord's death was shown, or announced afresh at the Lord's table in the primitive Church "when the disciples came together to break bread" (Acts 20:7; I Corinthians 16:1-2) on the first day of every week, NOT on the seventh day as falsely taught by certain sects. In the dispensation of Christ's Spiritual Presence, we Christians are "priests unto God" serving under the Token antitypical to the Holy Place or Sanctuary: the perfect and eternal dispensation, which begins with Christ's 'erchomai' Coming, is antitypical to the Holy of Holies, which Jesus Messiah our High Priest alone in the flesh as yet has entered (Hebrews 9:6-7) "and no man can to enter into the Holy of Holies until the vials of the seven plagues of the seven angels are fulfilled" (Revelation 15:8).
Jesus said, "I will not drink this wine again until that day when I drink it anew with you [at the Wedding Supper] in My Father's kingdom" (Matthew 26:29). We do not meet the glorified Jesus in His Kingdom here on earth, which would be the Millennium, but in His Father's Kingdom in the Air. When "He comes" we will no longer observe the Lord's Supper with symbols of His body, for the glorified Body will manifest in all ten thousand times ten thousands of its members, and the Lord's Supper in heaven, the antitype to the Holy of Holies, will be superseded by Christ's own bodily presence; then the wine shall be drunk "anew" in the Father's kingdom, by Christ and His people together, of which heavenly banquet our memorial of the Lord's Supper is a spiritual foretaste.
Jesus Messiah commanded us to observe three ordinances: baptism by immersion for the remission of past sins in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord's Supper, and foot washing. Foot washing is observed after the Lord's Supper as an example of humility and service in cleansing the feet of the saints from their contact with the world in their holy walk in the Spirit. The Brothers and Sisters, separated by a curtain or in different rooms wash one another's feet; the one whose feet are being washed laying hands on the one other in prayer, while the remainder sing softly and reverently.
John 13:4-17, "After supper Jesus removed His robe; and wrapped a towel around his loins [as the lowest of slaves would dress], poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel He had around Him. When He came to Simon Peter, Peter said to Him, Lord, You should not be washing my feet!
Jesus replied, Just now you do not understand now what I am doing, but you will know later on.
Peter protested You shall never wash my feet.
Jesus replied, If I do not wash you, you have no part in Me.
Simon Peter exclaimed, Lord, not only my feet, but also my hands and my head.
Jesus replied, One who has bathed needs only to have his feet washed to be entirely clean: and you are clean, but [He added], not every one of you. (For it would be a night of terrible moral sifting to them all so a solemn warning was needed by all the disciples. Besides, the treachery of one of their own number might have led them to doubt whether Christ had really Divine knowledge. On the other hand, this clear prediction of it would not only confirm their faith in Him, but show that there was some deeper meaning in the presence of a Judas among them. "I know those I chose; but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, He who eats My Bread lifts up his heel against Me!" (Psalm 41:9)]. For Jesus knew who should betray Him; therefore he said, Not all of you are clean.
After washing their feet and taking His robe, Jesus sat down and asked, Do you understand what I was doing? You call Me Master and Lord, and you do well to say it, for it is true. And since I, the Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other's feet. For I have given you an example to follow: do as I have done to you. How true it is that a servant is not greater than his master. Nor is the messenger greater than the one who sends him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them".
And God bless you, Brethren, predestinated unto the "full adoption" of Sons by Jesus Christ to God Himself. nl590.htm
