Bible Believers' Newsletter 606
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it is a privilege to fellowship in God's unchanging Word.
Today we will answer the spiritual questions of believers. I pray you will be blessed.
Brother Branham prophesied, the spirit of apostate Laodicea, which means "people's rights," is Judaeo-Communism, and last week Dr. Henry Makow explained in accordance with The Learned Elders of Zion: "The New World Order is "Communism""Freedom of conscience has been declared everywhere, so that now only years divide us from the moment of the complete wrecking of that Christian religion . . . We shall act clericalism and clericals into such narrow frames as to make their influence move in retrogressive proportion to its former progress." Protocol 1:15: "Our power in the present tottering condition of all forms of power will be more invincible than any other, because it will remain invisible until the moment when it has gained such strength that no cunning can any longer undermine it".
Their power is increasingly opaque as we endure the clout they exert over, not their Communist and third world satraps, but the puppets they select to orchestrate the charade of our Hegelian sham democracies. They enshrine their schemes of racial and religious hatred in legislation designed to divide and conquer the peoples of the world through multiculturalismSatan's program of genocide which produced the "fall" and a hybrid people "at enmity" with God and Adam's race (Genesis 3:15). As they boast, "to utterly exhaust humanity with dissension, hatred, struggle, envy and even by the use of torture, by starvation, by the inoculation of diseases, by want, so that the "Goyim" see no other issue than to take refuge in our complete sovereignty in money and in all else (Protocol 10:18-20; Revelation 13:1-8). Can you name their US presidential pawns from Woodrow Wilson to Barack Hussein Obama?
We have lived through a period in which our (once) Christian colonies of 'the City of London' can no longer maintain the tenuous claim to self-government since the ignominy of our amoral, bloodthirsty and cowardly aggression against those 'the city' regards as impediments to their realization of The Protocols for Lucifer's totalitarian one world government can no longer be hid. At home and abroad we have became rogue terrorist states on a fool's errand in our devolution to the image of the beasts of Imperial and Papal Rome (Revelation 13).
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott
As it was in the Days of Lot, ADL applauds Itself for Hate Bill Victory
October 27, 2009 ADL is the 'civil liberties' arm of . . . B'nai B'rith International. . . For nearly 20 years this adjunct of a Jewish religious organization has instructed law enforcement in all aspects of its twisted hate crime ideology. . . This week's signing of ADL's federal hate bill is only the legal beginning of its national and international hate crimes agenda. . . Its ultimate dream is international hate law enforcement. . . Toward this end, ADL inspired the US government to recently propose that the United Nations condemn any nation without a federal hate crimes law. . . Full story: truthtellers.org.
America is now following hate law countries such as Canada, England, and Australia in erecting a bias-oriented justice system existing parallel to traditional law. The government will now become especially attuned to the question of whether bias has motivated a crime on the state level. If they decide it has, the federal government will have complete jurisdiction to enter the case, forcing states to obtain the verdict the government wants. If the state fails to do so, the government can force it to re-try the case until federal prosecutors are satisfied. Thus, federal law enforcement will be uniting tomorrow afternoon with local law enforcement in a seamless unity of jurisdiction and powerthe definition of a police state. The 10th Amendment of the Constitution, reserving generous rights and protections to states, especially in law enforcement, will become irretrievably shattered. . . Full story: truthtellers.org

Comment: The once Christian West has rejected the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and His unchanging Word to serve Lucifer, the Mammonite god of this evil age. And having signed protections for homosexual and transgender Americans into law Obama is also permitting foreigners with AIDS to enter the US, to see if we can "embrace our differences".
Larry David Blasted for 'Curb' Episode where He urinates on Jesus Painting
October 28, 2009 Comedian (sic) Larry David is under attack from critics who say he pushed the mocking of religion and Christian belief in miracles over the edge in the latest episode of his HBO series "Curb Your Enthusiasm," which the [Jewish] cable network defended as "playful." On the show's most recent installment, which aired Sunday, David urinates on a painting of Jesus Christ . . . leaves the restroom. Minutes later, David's assistant enters the bathroom and concludes that Jesus is crying. She then summons her mother to the bathroom, where both women kneel in prayer.

Comment: Pope John Paul II, a man without discernment, regarded this blasphemer and his non-Semitic, anti-Semitic tribesmen "our elder brothers" (Galatians 6:7).
Palestine: the Assault on Health and other War Crimes
October 16, 2004 Does the death of an Arab weigh the same as that of a US or Israeli citizen? The Israeli army, with utter impunity, has killed more unarmed Palestinian civilians since September 2000 than the number of people who died on September 11, 2001. In conducting 238 extrajudicial executions the army has also killed 186 bystanders (including 26 women and 39 children). Two thirds of the 621 children (two thirds under 15 years) killed at checkpoints, in the street, on the way to school, in their homes, died from small arms fire, directed in over half of cases to the head, neck and chestthe sniper's wound. Clearly, soldiers are routinely authorized to shoot to kill children in situations of minimal or no threat. These statistics attract far less publicity than suicide bombings. . .

Comment: If you doubt this report (written four years before Israel's cowardly genocidal attack last December in which at least 1,300 Palestinians were killed and more than 5,000 were injured), read the article "Gaza Diary" by journalist Chris Hedges, who left the New York Times at about the time he started telling the truth about what was going on in Palestine. In "Gaza Diary," Hedges describes watching Israeli soldiers of the most powerful army in the Middle East entice "children like mice into a trap and murdering them for sport," a common occurrence in Occupied Palestine. This is confirmed by Jewish Professor Norman Finkelstein in Beyond Chutzpah: On the Misuse of Anti-Semitism and the Abuse of History.
Americans Dressed as Afghans caught with Illegal Weapons and Explosives
Islamabad, October 28, 2009 Four American citizens were caught red-handed by Capital Police in the early hours of Tuesday for photographing sensitive buildings. All four were dressed in traditional Afghan outfits and were found to be in possession of illegal weapons and explosives . . .
(In 2005, Iraqi Police arrested and locked up TWO British operatives in Basra who were dressed in local Arab gear, shooting at innocent civilians in a busy market with automatic rifles and driving a vehicle laden with explosives, intended to go off in the middle of the busy market. British tanks tore into the prison and rescued both these men. In Pakistan, it seems all the Americans need to do is make a call to the Interior Ministry and have their terrorists released). . .

Comment: The Zionist 'City of London' has colonial US troops under cover in Pakistan. Blackwater (Xe) mercenaries are actively recruiting mercenaries fluent is Urdu and Punjabi. If Muslims refuse to be Islamic Terrorists, Americans will do the job. World War III between political Islam and political Zionists is being hurried to the "hot" stage.
Am Italian court has convicted CIA operatives in absentia for the 2003 kidnapping of Muslim cleric Abu Omar off the streets of Milan in 2003. He was whisked off to Egypt, where he was tortured before being released and ultimately returned to Italy. The convicted Americans face arrest only if they travel outside the United States, since US authorities have made it clear that they will not cooperate with European authorities pursuing CIA kidnapping cases.

Congressional Leaders/Staffers Complicit in 9/11 Coverup
October 18, 2009 I read this week about an amendment tacked on to an appropriations bill that would bar trials of 9/11 suspects in criminal court. . . The amendment reads in part: "None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available for the Department of Justice by this Act may be obligated or expended to commence or continue the prosecution in (a civilian) court of the United States of an individual suspected of planning, authorizing, organizing, committing or aiding the attacks on the United States and its citizens that occurred on September 11, 2001."
Here is the story taken off-line by idahostatesman.com/nationalpolitics/story/931319.html.
Graham and Leiberman were on this like white on rice. I'm a bit concerned that the wording of this would, in fact, bar anyone from being criminally prosecuted for planning, authorizing, organizing, committing or aiding the attacks, essentially granting themselves immunity. Full story: yahoo.com
Comment: John Farmer, Dean of Rutger Universities' School of Law and former Attorney General of New Jersey, was responsible for drafting the original flawed 9/11 report. His book: "The Ground Truth: The Story Behind America's Defense on 9/11?" builds the inescapably convincing case that the official version. . . is almost entirely untrue. . . salem-news.com

Are Populations being primed for Nano-Microchips inside Vaccines?
October 5, 2009 The question is, how long will it take governments and big pharma to immerse nano-microchips inside of vaccines to tag and surveil global populations? . . . Japan's Hitachi says it has developed the world's smallest and thinnest microchip that can be embedded in paper to track down parcels or prove the authenticity of a document. The integrated circuit (IC) chip is as minute as a speck of dust . . .
Nanoelectrodes implanted in the brain are increasingly being used to manage neurological disorders. . . Through nanotechnology, researchers have also been able to create artificial pores able to transmit nanoscale materials through membranes. . . Scientists working at Queen Mary University, London, have developed micrometer-sized capsules to safely deliver drugs inside living cells. . . The worry for microbiologist and vaccine critic Doug Dorst is that one day vaccines "will do what they've always been intended for . . . control of the global populace". . .
In December 2000, Former Chief Medical Officer of Finland, Rauni-Leena Luukanen-Kilde, MD stated that it is technically possible for every newborn to be injected with a microchip, which could then function to identify the person for the rest of his or her life. Such plans are secretly being discussed in the US without any public airing of the privacy issues involved.
Today's microchips operate by means of low-frequency radio waves that target them. With the help of satellites, the implanted person can be tracked anywhere on the globe. Such a technique was among a number tested in the Iraq war, according to Dr. Carl Sanders, who invented the intelligence-manned interface (IMI) biotic, which is injected into people. (Earlier during the Vietnam War, soldiers were injected with the Rambo chip, designed to increase adrenaline flow into the bloodstream.) The 20-billion-bit/second supercomputers at the US National Security Agency (NSA) could now "see and hear" what soldiers experience in the battlefield with a remote monitoring system (RMS). . .
The NSA's electronic surveillance system can simultaneously follow and handle millions of people. Each of us has a unique bioelectrical resonance frequency in the brain, just as we have unique fingerprints. With electromagnetic frequency (EMF) brain stimulation fully coded, pulsating electromagnetic signals can be sent to the brain, causing the desired voice and visual effects to be experienced by the target. This is a form of electronic warfare. US astronauts were implanted before they were sent into space so their thoughts could be followed and all their emotions could be registered 24 hours a day.
The mass media has not reported that an implanted person's privacy vanishes for the rest of his or her life. S/he can be manipulated in many ways. Using different frequencies, the secret controller of this equipment can even change a person's emotional life. S/he can be made aggressive or lethargic. Sexuality can be artificially influenced. Thought signals and subconscious thinking can be read, dreams affected and even induced, all without the knowledge or consent of the implanted person.
This secret technology has been used by military forces in certain NATO countries since the 1980s without civilian and academic populations having heard anything about it. . . The time to act is now! Full story: preventdisease.com
GATA: Federal Reserve admits hiding Gold Swap Arrangements
September 25. 2009 The Federal Reserve System has disclosed to the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee Inc. that it has gold swap arrangements with foreign banks that it does not want the public to know about.
GATA will seek to bring a lawsuit in the federal court to appeal the Fed's denial of our freedom-of-information request. While this will require many thousands of dollars, the Fed's admission that it aims to conceal documentation of its gold swap arrangements establishes that such a lawsuit would have a distinct target and not be just a fishing expedition. In pursuit of such a lawsuit and its general objective of liberating the precious metals markets and making them fair and transparent. . . Full story: wearechangeseattle.org
Questions You have Asked
May you find these responses to questions useful in witnessing to sincere seekers of Truth in these last days.
Statement: Every man is right in his own eyes. I have read multitudes of material from others, who like you think what others believe is nonsense. There are many on the Internet who are very zealous and very sincere who are worlds apart from what you are saying. Are they right? Are you right? Every man is "right" in his own eyes. It is an endless merry-go-round.
Response: The gentleman identified himself as a "Preterite" which is one who holds that almost the sum of the prophecies contained in the Book of Revelation were fulfilled with the destruction of Jerusalem in AD70 and the fall of heathen Rome in 313 when Constantine granted freedom of worship by the edict of Nantes. The Preterite theory was not held by any of the early Fathers, and is only held now by Rationalists, who limit John's vision to things within his own horizonpagan Rome's persecutions of Christians, and consequently its anticipated destruction. This would place Preterites at odds with prophecy concerning the redemption of elect Israelites in Daniel's Seventieth Week. These men measure their intellectual strength against the 'apokalupsis' or unveiling of Jesus Christ and the mind of God, coming short on revelation from Above in the sovereign timing of our Lord God.
His main point was that "THERE ARE NO MODERN DAY PROPHETS," yet in order to be a Preterite or a Trinitarian one takes upon himself the mantle of a prophet for no prophet of yore ever enunciated such interpretations as the mind of God. And as the prophet Peter declared, "We have the prophetic Message affirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as you would to a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns, and the Morning Star rises in your hearts. [That is, until you are born-again]. With this most clearly understood, that no prophecy recorded in Scripture is of any private interpretation [either by the prophet himself or by the reader]. Because no prophecy ever came by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost" (II Peter 1:19-21).
Statement: Matthew 17:11 refers to John the Baptist if you go on and read verses 12 and 13.
Response: Matthew 17:11, "And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elijah truly shall first come, and restore all things".
John the Baptist's commission was to cut down and root out all manmade spiritual principles of the Jewish denominations. Matthew 3:10, "Now also the axe is laid to the root of the trees: therefore every tree which does not bring forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire".
John the Baptist restored NOTHING! Matthew 17:11 cannot possibly refer to John.
In Matthew 17:11, Jesus is speaking of the future coming of the Elijah of Malachi 4, whose ministry would "turn the heart of the children to their [apostolic] fathers" before the great tribulation and the consummation of life. Had John fulfilled this commission he would have denied Moses and the curse of the Law which God had him impose upon Israel and also deny Jesus Messiah, the One He was commissioned to introduce, because he would have turned the heart of the Israelites back to the faith of the Patriarchs. Think on that.
Statement: Matthew 17:11 refers to John the Baptist if you go on and read verses 12 and 13.
Response: Matthew 17:12-13, "But I tell you, that Elijah has come already, and they knew him not, but have done to him whatsoever they pleased. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. Then the disciples understood that He spoke to them of John the Baptist".
Here Jesus is speaking of a past Elijah who had been decapitated. John the Baptist was the Elijah of Isaiah 40 and Malachi 3:1 who introduced Messiah to Israel. Fifty days after the resurrection of our Lord and three years after the death of John, his ministry "turned the heart of the [apostolic] fathers to the children." Israel is God's servant nation, not His children.
Statement: Also in Hebrews 1:1-3, God speaks to us today through His Son Jesus Christ. THERE ARE NO MODERN DAY PROPHETS!
Response: This is a strange assumption since these Words were penned by the inspired "MODERN DAY PROPHET" Paul, emphasizing the fact that Jesus Christ is more than just another prophet. Paul was not teaching "THERE ARE NO MODERN DAY PROPHETS!" Through whom did the revelation of the New Testament come if Paul was not a prophet? Peter, Jude and John were also prophets. There have been many New Testament prophets. Acts 11:27-28; 13:1; 15:32; 21:9-10; Romans 2:16; I Corinthians 12:28; 14:36-38; Galatians 1:11-12; Ephesians 2:20; 3:5; 4:8; Revelation 11:10, 18; 16:6; 18:20, 24; 22:9 name some of the more obvious testimonies to the fact there will be a fivefold ministry in the Church that will include prophets (as distinct from people with the gift of prophecy) until the translation of the living saints (Ephesians 4:8-18).
According to "His Son Jesus Christ," there are "MODERN DAY PROPHETS," or Jesus and the apostles and prophets of the Old and New Testaments will need to repent of those Scriptures and the following errors:
Matthew 24:34, "Behold, I [will] send you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them you will kill and crucify; and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city".
Matthew 17:11, "Elijah [the prophet] truly shall first come [in the future], and restore all things".
Acts 3:18-23, "God has fulfilled those things that Christ should suffer, which He had foretold by the mouth of all His prophets. Repent therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; and He will send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before: whom the heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began".
When Peter spoke these words Jesus was crucified, risen and ascended to heaven; the day of Pentecost is past and it will be some years before the New Testament is revealed to and expounded by the "MODERN DAY PROPHET" Paul, who was yet the sinner named Saul.
Here Peter is prophesying in what you call "MODERN DAYS" of a time almost two thousand years in the future in which the New Testament faith, which was yet to be delivered by the "MODERN DAY PROPHET" Paul, has been polluted by "Jewish fables" and Babylonian superstitions such as the trinity which would be introduced into Christendom at the point of a sword after the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church organized as the state religion of pagan Imperial Rome at the First Nicaea Council in AD325, more than 200 years after the death of the original New Testament apostles and prophets. Peter is prophesying an era foretold in Matthew 24:37, Luke 17:28-30, II Thessalonians 2, II Timothy 3 - 4 and Revelation 3:17-20, even beyond the apostasy of the Gentile dispensation in which we presently live wherein the Word has been restored by another "MODERN DAY PROPHET," the Elijah of Matthew 17:11, William Branham (1909 1965). Peter was speaking of the near future, after the close of the Gentile dispensation, when two more "MODERN DAY PROPHETS" promised by Zechariah 4, Matthew 24:31 and Revelation 11 will "restore all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began," and introduce Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel as Brother Branham introduced His 'parousia' Coming to Christ's end-time Bride in these last days.
We know this is so "For [in Deuteronomy 18:15] Moses truly said to the Israelite fathers [whom he delivered from Egyptian bondage], A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren [i.e. Israelites, not Jews], like me; Him [Jesus Messiah] you shall hear in all things He shall say to you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, who will not hear that Prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people".
Now in Revelation 1:1 "that Prophet," Jesus Christ, promised a prophet to us Gentiles who was the "angel" John saw and heard in the visions of God when he was "caught up in the Spirit into the [yet future] day of the Lord." This was the "angel" sent to the seventh or Laodicean Church Age (Revelation 3:14; 10:7; 22:6-11, etc., in Ezekiel and Daniel). We know this is so because He is the one (1) man to whom Jesus revealed the mystery of the Seven Seals, and because this mystery was "sealed to the time of the end . . . 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" (Daniel 12:4, 9; 10:4, 7).
The "time of the end" or "end-times" began between March 17 24, 1963 when Christ fulfilled Revelation 4, 5, and 10:1-7 and revealed the Seven Seals to us through this prophet. So long as the Book was sealed, the Church had only PART Word, and even "the faith once delivered to the apostolic saints" was lost through the imposition of pagan dogma and martyrdom by the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church, but throughout this time Christ was a Mediator, advocate or 'parakletos' in the office of Son of God for the unavoidable ignorance of His elect until the fullness of the Word was unveiled by the revelation of the Seven Seals.
The revelation of the Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form. I Corinthians 13:10, "When that which is complete [i.e. Christ, the fullness of the Word], has come, PART Word and Christ's mediation for ignorance will be done away" (Revelation 10:1; 22:17-19; I Thessalonians 4:14, etc).
Christ is no longer in the office of Son of God and Mediator and has come to indict Rome and her (once) Protestant harlot daughters "and execute also judgment, because He is [now in the office of] the Son of man" (John 5:27; Revelation 4:5; 5:6-7; 17 20).
The Bible was written so that God's elect might receive "the mind of Christ" and be "at one" with God by agreement in the common faith, which is a clear understanding of the revealed Word of God (I Corinthians 2:16; Romans 10:14-17). A different measure was revealed in each dispensation by the "angel" or major apostle to each AgePaul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Martin Luther, John Wesley and William Branham (Isaiah 9-13; Revelation 1 3). The revelation of each Message brought new birth to the elect predestinated to that Age. Jesus called their Messages "thunders," which is a metaphor for the Voice of God sounding from heaven (II Samuel 22:14; Psalm 18:23; John 12:23-29; Revelation 10:3-4). All seven sabbaths, baptisms with the Holy Spirit or Church Ages are fulfilled, and "the Voice of the Archangel," Jesus Christ, the fullness of the Word Himself, is whispering His secrets to His beloved end-time Bride in this holy convocation or fiftieth day of the antitype of Israel's Pentecostal feast to place the Message of this last "MODERN DAY [Covenant] PROPHET" to we Gentiles from Genesis to Revelation and bring us under preeminence to the fullness of the Word in a baptism by the fullness of the Spirit for the double portion of Spiritual rebirth, the manifestation of the Sons of God and physical glorification (I Thessalonians 4:16; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:47-56).
Deuteronomy 29:29, "The secret things belong to the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever." In these last days "the secret things" that had been sealed from the foundation of the world have been disclosed to awaken the wise and foolish virgin and call them out from denominational guesswork because "the mystery of God declared to His servants the prophets is finished" (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 10:7; 18:4).
Amos 3:6, "Surely the Lord God will do nothing, until first He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets".
Is this God's unchanging Word (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8) or an error on which the Lord needs a reprimand? God always sends mercy and a way of escape before judgment, and since the Book of Revelation is a Book of prophecy veiled in Old Testament symbols He can only reveal its mystery through a vindicated prophet (Numbers 12:6; Deuteronomy 13:1-5; 18:16-17; Isaiah 42:9; John 16:13). Not only has the Lord bound Himself to sending a prophet, He has promised to display a sign in the heavens as featured on our home page (Genesis 1:14; Psalm 19; Daniel 7:9; Joel 2:31; Matthew 24:3, 29-31; 26:64; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7, 14).
It needs to be pointed out that the prophecy of Malachi 4:5-6 and Matthew 17:11 to "turn the heart of the children to [the faith of] their [apostolic] fathers," was not predestinated to be fulfilled in Old Testament times, that is, prior to the inauguration of the Church on the day of Pentecost, for Malachi said this will precede the consummation of life when God will "come and smite the earth with a curse . . . For the day will come that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, and all who do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that comes shall burn them up, says the Lord, so that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But to you who fear My Name the Sun of righteousness will arise with healing in His wings; and you shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And you shall [return with the Lord for the Millennium] and tread down the wicked; for they shall be [atomic] ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I do this, says the Lord of hosts" (Malachi 4:1-3, 6; Matthew 3:12; II Peter 3:1-12; Revelation 19:20 20:5).
Before the Lord can "restore all the things" in His material creation He must "restore the fullness of the Word spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began [in order that] the heart" of His elect may be at one with He who is the Logos or Word without the necessity for mediation to excuse their ignorance. As the original Word must be restored and the mystery of God finished, and the Word of God comes only to a prophet, God has to send prophets or He will be in breach His own Word.
Now whoever he was, the Covenant prophet promised to these last days has been. His Message was the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6, which was the "Shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 that calls the wise and foolish virgin out of Babylon to be filled with the Spirit and come to maturity by "the Voice of the Archangel" (Revelation 18:1-4).
Question: A Sister wrote, in Newsletter 605 you made reference to Los Angeles and Nisan 14, saying it will be necessary [to declare martial law] if Los Angeles takes a swim come Nisan 14. What is the connection there? Los Angeles taking a swim would seem to connote a tidal wave or tsunami there. Could you please explain!
Answer: The close of the Hebrew dispensation of Law with the first crucifixion of the Son of man, Jesus Messiah, set the pattern for the end of the Gentile dispensation of grace when the world will crucify the Son of God afresh by blaspheming the Holy Spirit (Hebrews 6:4-8). It would if it could, but it cannot crucify the Son of man afresh as it is given to man once to die, and He is risen from the dead, glorified, and alive for evermore. Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is the unforgivable sin (Matthew 12:32; Hebrews 10:26).
At Calvary the Israel nation ended in apostasy and natural darkness befell Jerusalem, but Spiritual darkness covered the earth when she extinguished Jesus, the Light of the world. But the Light of revelation rose upon Christ's Gentile Bride, New Jerusalem (Isaiah 60:1-3). Today the Gentile churches are also apostate, having rejected the Light of revelation for the shady hypocrisy of "situational ethics" inspired by the spirit of Laodicea, which is Judaeo-Communism that demands rights for the people with neither tie post nor responsibility to faith. "A day in which the Light shall not be clear, nor dark: a unique day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be Light" (Zechariah 14:6-7).
The end-time Message of the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7 shone this promised Light in the evening time of the world as the "gross [Talmudic] darkness" that covered the people of Israel at the first crucifixion is imposed upon faithless Gentiles who have surrendered Christendom to International Jewry (Genesis 27:40). Talmudic darkness is again covering the earth, and as an earthquake sunk Capernaum after Jesus' prophecy, "a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great" will soon sink Los Angeles and a segment of earth 1,500 x 300-400 miles, offshore from the Aleutian Islands going onshore at San Jose and returning offshore at San Diego (Revelation 16:18; 18:21-23). It will send tsunamis around the world; the Pacific Ring of Fire will erupt; volcanoes on the Moon will turn it blood red as prophesied by Joel and Jesus Christ, the Mount of Olives will cleave in two, destroying the Dome of the Rock and igniting the "hot" stage of the present World War III.
This universal cataclysm is imminent, and will take place one Nisan 14Good Friday to the Catholicsas at the first crucifixion.
Question: Please explain the seven thunders of Revelation 10:3-4?
Answer: I believe you will be encouraged if we respond in Brother Branham's own words confirmed and expounded with the Scripture.
Brother Branham said, "God came down and took the body of His own Son in which He had lived, and He ripped it apart at Calvary, His bleeding, wounded, cut. . . And the spear run in there and ripped Him apart, and His Blood gushed out, and He said, "Father, into Thy hands I commend My Spirit." He bowed His head; and the earth shook, and the lightnings flashed, and the thunders roared. God was writing His everlasting Covenant"
Revelation 10:1-4, "I saw another mighty Angel 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 [in judgment] upon [Rome, the beast from] the sea, and His left foot [in judgment] on [the united States of America, the beast from] the earth, and cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars: and when He had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a Voice from heaven saying, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not".
The Prophet continued, "And He took His dead body from the grave on the first day of the week, and brought it up into heaven, and set it there as a High Priest, as a memorial, setting there perfect forever. And He sent the Spirit that He tore out of that Body, right back down on the Church. And that Church will have to have the same Spirit that was in that Body or it won't dovetail with it in the resurrection. Those two pieces must come perfectly together; and if this Church isn't perfectly, just exactly the same Spirit that was in Christ, you'll never go in the rapture" (Hebrews, 359:422-423).
"The mystery of the Seventh Seal in the Book of Redemption . . . is in a threefold manner [Brother Branham proceeded to explain the three 'pulls' of his ministry that culminate in the unveiling of Christ the fullness of the Word, which initiated the threefold 'rapture' of I Thessalonians 4:16] . . . the mystery is laying behind those seven consecutive thunders rolling out" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 557:2-4). God was revealing the mystery of redemption.
"Now [William Branham], this messenger of Malachi 4 and Revelation 10:7, is going to do two things. One: According to Malachi 4 he will turn the hearts of the children to the fathers. Two: He will reveal the mysteries of the Seven Thunders in Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals. It will be these divinely revealed 'mystery-truths' that literally turn the hearts of the children to the Pentecostal fathers. Exactly so" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 327:1).
Brother Branham said, "Look where the voices was in the thunders, not in heaven, on earth. The thunders never uttered from the heavens; they uttered from earth" (Sirs, is This the Sign of the End, p. 38:6). The Seven Thunders were the PART-Word Messages of the 'angels' to the Church AgesPaul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Martin Luther, John Wesley and William Branhamwhile the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals and Christ was Mediator for their ignorance of the fullness of the Word. Their revelation of the Word for their day baptized the Church Age saints into their position in the Body, and the preeminent virtue of that measure of the Spirit written in their lives raised up a standard against the enemy as illustrated in this diagram (Click to enlarge).
When Israel's high priest declared, "Messiah's Blood be on us and on our children" (Matthew 27:25) he broke his relationship with God, and without a mediator Israel was marooned on the wrong side of the gulf between God and men, like the rich man to whom Abraham said, "between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they who would pass from here to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, who would come from thence" (Luke 16:19-31). God has not dealt with Israel unto salvation since Calvary but He made Christ a Mediator so that individuals in Adam's race who possess faith and recognize their day and its Message can cross the gulf from death unto Life.
The diagram indicates that as the Body grew, the election decreased in adverse proportion to the increase of unbelief so that when the last member predestinated to be born of PART-Word was redeemed the Church Age of Laodicea ended in apostasy, and "know it not" forty-six years later. As the diagram shows, this created a breach of faith between the denominational Church and the Word she claims is her Head. This breach represents Revelation 4 and 5 where we find the seven portions of the Spirit back before the throne, which is no longer covered with the Blood of the Lamb for now it is the Judgment Seat of an angry God issuing lightnings and thunderings and voices. The elders call for a kinsman Redeemer lest God "smite the earth with a curse," Jesus comes forward, wounded and bloody, claims the Book and tears open its Seven Seals to reveal their hidden mystery, for His people have only PART-Word and without the fullness of the Word they are in the situation of the Israel and the rich man as Christ is no longer a Mediator between God and men. (For a thorough understanding of the Breach, and hence the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10, please study Newsletter 477 and its links to related teachings).
Brother Branham delivered the revelation of the Seven Seals, inspired by successive, cumulative measures of the Spirit that had anointed each of the Messengers of PART-Word, until the fullness of the Spirit introduced the fullness of the Word, who is Christ, so "when that which is perfect had come, [and the seven portions of PART-Word together constitute the fullness of the Word revealed by the fullness of the Spirit], then that which is in part [PART-Word and Christ's Mediation for ignorance of that which is perfect] shall be done away" (I Corinthians 13:10). As the thunders or revelations were now consecutive and not spread over 2,000 years, during much of which the Messenger was seeking the revelation himself or deceased, Brother Branham's ministry "wound up all of the loose ends not fully understood" or expounded during the Church Ages to reveal the entire mystery of God which is Christ the fullness of the Word, and THUS SAITH THE LORD. So all of the mysteries such as the Serpent's seed, the Godhead, Scriptural water baptism and marriage and divorce were revealed to bring Christ's end-time Bride into the unity of the faith for the rapturing of the Church.
In the Bible a "thunder" signifies the Voice of God. When certain Gentiles who came to worship at the feast of Passover asked to see Jesus this signaled the time had come in which the Son of man should be glorified and His ministry extended universally to we Gentiles. And being troubled in His soul He pondered, shall I pray, "Father, save Me from this hour? No, for this purpose I have come to this hour. Father, glorify Your Name. Then a Voice came from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. The people who stood by and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spoke to Him. Jesus answered and said, This Voice was not audibly uttered for My sake, but for yours." He said this with reference to the enquiring Gentiles who should soon experience grace and the blessing of God's promise to Abraham. "Now is the judgment of this Israelite world" (John 12:23-31; II Samuel 22:14; Psalm 18:23; Revelation 10:3-4).
Brother Branham said, "In that Sixth Seal there was a threefold purpose. . . There was a threefold purpose of the horse riders. There's been a threefold purpose in all these things . . . Now, do you notice on the opening of this Seventh Seal, it's also in a threefold purpose . . . The Seven Thunders in heaven will unfold this mystery. It'll be right at the Coming of Christ, because Christ said no one knew when He would return [Revelation 10:1-6; I Thessalonians 4:14-16; Acts 1:7]. . . There'll be seven voices of these thunders that will reveal the great revelation at that time." Which is Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming, for the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Him back to earth in W_O_R_D form (I Corinthians 13:10; The Revelation of the Seven Seals p. 574:2; 575:5-6).
Seven consecutive thunders or seven measures of PART-Word constitute Christ, the fullness of the Word with no human reasoning or denominational traditions added to or taken from THUS SAITH THE LORD. Do you see that?
Revelation 22:16-21, "I Jesus have sent My angel [William Branham] to testify these things to you in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star."
"And the Spirit and the Bride say, Come. And let him that hears say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of Life freely." The Spirit and Christ's end-time Bride say the same thing because they have THUS SAITH THE LORD (Ephesians 4:13. I Corinthians 1:10 . . . at last). The Bride is in "speaking conditions" for the 'third pull' in the manifestation of the Sons of God that will endue us with faith for translation grace.
"For I testify to every man that hears the Words of the prophecy of this Book [which is the revelation of the Seven Seals ministered by William Branham], If any man shall add to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this Book: and if any man shall take away from the Words of the Book of this prophecy, God will take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the Holy City, and from the things which are written in this Book."
"He who testifies these things says, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen".
Brother Branham said, "The Bride hasn't had a revival yet. See? There's been no revival there, no manifestation of God to stir the Bride yet. See? We're looking for it. It will take those seven unknown thunders back there to wake her up again (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 253:3).
The "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 is the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:1-13, which is the Message of the Prophet, the revelation of the Seven Thunders that awakens the sleeping virgin from their denominational slumber and calls them out of Babylon to be filled with the Spirit and grow to maturity in the unity of the faith by "the Voice of the Archangel," Christ in their heart, placing the Message from Genesis to Revelation (Revelation 18:1-4).
"When anybody thinks that he has those Seven Thunders, if it don't compare with the rest of the Word, there's something wrong here. See? It's got to come THUS SAITH THE LORD, for this is the Book; this is the revelation of Jesus Christ in its entirety" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 284:5; I Corinthians 13:10).
Brother Branham was asked this Question: "Have the Seven Thunders which equals seven mysteries already been revealed? Were they revealed in the seven Seals, but are yet not known to us as the thunders yet?"
Brother Branham answers: "No, they [are known to us as the Seven Thunders, they] were revealed in the Seven Seals; that's what the thunders was about. They was to reveal. . . The Seven Thunders that had uttered their voices and no one could make out what it was. . . John knew what it was, but he was forbidden to write it. He said, "But the seventh angel, in the days of his sounding, the seven mysteries of the seven thunders would be revealed." And the seventh angel is a messenger of the seventh Church Age. See?" (COD, p. 1161:Q395). So the Seven Thunders have been revealed since 1963.
In "Reproach for the Word" (December 23, 1962), and in his seminal Message, "Sirs, Is This the Sign of the End?" delivered on December 30 before he left Jeffersonville and went West to meet the sevenfold Spirit of the Lord "coming to give me my new commission" for the end-time Bride of this holy convocation, he foretold how they would unite as the fullness of the Spirit and appear over Arizona as the Cloud prophesied in Daniel 7:9, Matthew 26:64, Acts 1:9-11, Revelation 1:7 and 14. These Scriptures were fulfilled on February 28, 1963. This was the sign of Christ's imminent 'parousia' Coming (Matthew 24:3) and subsequent Presence as Head of the Body after the end of the Laodicean Church Age, wigged as Judge in the office of Son of man (John 5:27). He said, "It might be closer than you think it is. It's got me scared. Oh, I haven't done enough. Where are we at? "Time shall be no more." He announces that time is over. What happens? What happens? Could that be so now, brethren? Seriously think. If it is, then the pyramid is capped by the Seven Thunders" (p. 26:5; 47:2; Matthew 24:3; Revelation 10:6).
In this Message He expounded several visions from the Lord that foretold his "new commission" after the close of Laodicea. In accordance with the heavenly Voice that spoke over the Ohio River in 1933parallel with John 12:23-31his Message would unveil the Seven Seals to restore the apostolic faith and finish the mystery of God thus introducing Christ's second Coming in W_O_R_D form as John the Baptist's Message introduced His first physical Coming. His visions were confirmed by the visions and dreams of certain saints in his congregation and refer to Christ's 'parousia' Coming as the "mighty angel" of the Covenant returning in the office of Son of man to execute judgment (Revelation 10; John 5:27). He quoted Revelation 10:6, "Time shall be no more," meaning that when the 2,000 years of Christ's intercession in the office of Son of God for the ignorance of the PART-Word Church Age saints there will be no delay to full redemption blessings (Hebrews 10:37).
As the Book was still Sealed Brother Branham lacked the certainty of THUS SAITH THE LORD and was troubled because He knew that the pyramid representing New Jerusalem, which is the mystic Body of Christ's Bride of all Ages, will be sealed and capped by the Seven Thunders and that some of his children and congregation were not baptized into Christ. He saw that the Church Ages would be finished but seems not to have taken account of the fiftieth day of the holy convocation, wherein grace continues, and which is the Capstone formed by the fullness of the Word manifest in Christ's end-time Bride who is baptized into the Body by the revelation of the Seven Thunders after the close of the Church Ages; and that "We, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. . . and without us the Body cannot be made perfect and the glorified Age saints Church cannot be glorified" (Romans 12:5; Hebrews 11:39-40).
The Prophet's concern is illustrated by this Spiritual dream:
"My son Billy Paul, he talks in his sleep, but he doesn't have dreams very often. He had one the other night that shook him up. Said he'd dreamed he was at a church, and I hadn't come in yet. Said when I come in, fire was flying out of the eyes. And I said, "The time is here; it's over." And everybody begin screaming, "I can't, my children." And me. . .
My wife said, "I can't get Sarah to ask the blessing at the table," and so forth.
He said, "I've got to go get Loyce and the baby."
I said, "Loyce can't come now. The baby's too young to know. Billy the hour is here; we must go." I said, "It's midnight now, before daylight Jesus will be here. If it isn't then I'm a false witness of Christ." (He is referring to Matthew 25:6 and the first resurrection in the third hour of the day, between 6.00am and 9.00am, the time of the morning sacrifice.
And somebody spoke up and said, "No man knows the minute or hour."
"I never said minute or hour; I said sometime between now and daylight." I said, "Let's go, Billy. We're at the time; let's go."
And we got in the car and started. And we started up the mountain. And when we did, it looked like the light was coming, and the skies were dark upon the earth. He said I pulled off the side of the road, held my hands over like this, fire still flying from my eyes. And he said I said, "Lord, I have did this at Your command. I have did this just because that You told me to do it this a-way. I have did these things according to what You've told me."
And I motioned to a big granite mountain, and a Light without hands cut a stone out of the mountain weighing hundreds of tons and here it come. I said, "Turn your heads; don't look. It'll all be over just in a few minutes." Said, "Then a great holy hush come everywhere as this Stone come towards the place."
It may be later than we think. See, that's exactly Scriptural (You see?), the Stone without hands cut out of the mountain. And so one of these days it's going to be that way when you're going to scream for something. I said to him, "You've already had that time. [Christ's mediation through the Church Ages Revelation 10:6]. God has constantly warned you time after time." Yeah, I said, "Even if it's my own kid or whoever it is, the hour is here. I can only say what He's told me to say, and it'll be here, and it was."
And then all of a sudden here He come, a Stone cut out of the mountain without hands. Daniel saw that, you know, back many years ago. And Billy knowed nothing about that, but it was a dream sent to him from the Lord (Daniel 2:34, 45).
Now, see, they claim to be worshipping that very God that they were making fun of. And the same thing has reversed again today by the same reason, living in a glare instead of the Light. Great Lights has a shine. All right" (There is a Man that can turn on the Light, p. 24:138-143).
The Gentile dispensation of grace ends in apostasy like the Hebrew dispensation of the Law, but grace will continue until the Body is complete. As we have said, at the close of Laodicea there was an impassable breach between the Headstone and denominational Christianity. Once again, the Seven Thunders uttered their revelation on earth through the prophet William Branham, because "when Christ opened the Seventh Seal, there was silence in heaven" (Revelation 8:1). And when the fullness of the Word was introduced by the revelation of the Seven Thunders, which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals, the denominations who love the Man Jesus rejected His second or 'parousia' Coming as Christ the W_O_R_D, and clung to their substitute creeds and traditions as Israel clung to their substitute sacrifice of sheep and goats, and crucified to themselves the Son of God afresh as Israel had crucified the Son of man.
The Church Age saints were sealed into the Body, but what of Christ's end-time Bride? In His grace God gave the prophet William Branham a "new commission" after the close of Laodicea. He stood in the breach between the sealed Body of the PART-Word saints and the Headstone where he delivered the mystery of the Seven Thunders. This revelation is the strait and narrow gate into the Headstone of the fullness of the Word that caps the pyramid of New Jerusalem, Christ's Bride of all Ages. The revelation of the Seven Thunders as they sounded consecutively brings us into perfect agreement with the fullness of the Word and under preeminence so we can manifest that we are the Sons of God and change in the atoms. (Click to enlarge diagram).
Jesus Christ has overcome death and His end-time Bride under preeminence to and one with the Word will not see death, for in the manifestation of the Sons of God and our translation from corruptible flesh God "will glorify His Name again." As each Church Age emphatically displayed one of the virtues of Christ as an evidence of His Life manifested in their part of the Body, Christ's end-time Bride will display the Token of the undivided Life of Christ embracing all of the virtues in Love. "God is Love." Love and compassion is doing the will of God, not expressing fleshly emotions in sacrifice "as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart" (Ephesians 6:6), with the Life of Christ on display. The capstone on the pyramid is Christ the Word incarnate in His end-time Bride. We are the Seven Thunders that cap the pyramid, completing the stature of the perfect Man; confirming "that Corn of wheat that fell into the ground and died" has reproduced Himself in "much fruit". nl606.htm
