With the world productive economy stagnatingbankrupted as planned by the "Free Trade" SCAM, the target of taxation is moving from the profits of a productive economy with full employment, to consumption by the unemployed mass living in failed socialist economies. F. D. Roosevelt said, "If something happens in politics, you can bet it was planned that way." This was demonstrated on April 1, 1973 by the introduction of 10%, now 17.5%, Value Added Tax (VAT) in the UK as a pre-condition to joining the EEC, now the EU; and in Australia on July 1, 2000 by a 10% Goods and Services Tax (GST) as the Word Bank's precondition to John Howard's election as Prime Minister. The banksters of the 'City of London' who control governments plan decades and centuries ahead of outcomes in the pre-planned history they impose on the world.
Consumption taxes ensure that as the world descends into the depression Brother Branham prophesied sixty years ago (Jezebel Religion, p. 22:100), governments will continue to farm taxes to pay the usurers. The climate change/CO2 HOAX and is integral to this conspiracy. Australia's taxpayer-funded alien-controlled public broadcasting system is constantly pumping out propaganda on this and other SCAMS of 'the City of London'.
The Lord sent His Prophet with warning and a way to escape the tribulation coming upon Earthlings who do not have the Seal of God in their foreheads before the world order falls apart. Jesus is the way, the truth and eternal Life. We must be sealed in Him. Not by learning, good works or manmade traditions, but by grace through a clear revelation of the Word for this last hour, for God is hiding Himself in simplicity, and this is the subject of our main article.
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.

Foreign-Led Commission now Governs Haiti
May 16, 2010 The Parliament . . . formally ceded its powers over finances and reconstruction, during the state of emergency, to a foreign-led Interim Commission for the Reconstruction of Haiti (CIRH). The CIRH's mandate is to direct the post-earthquake reconstruction of Haiti through the $9.9 billion in pledges of international aid, including approving policies, projects, and budgeting. The World Bank will manage the money . . . the international community, which didn't respond to the crisis by promoting the interests of the Haitian people. Instead, they took advantage of the situation to further entrench their own power.
"The CIRH has no accountability to anyone, especially to the parliament which voted it in. The only body to whom it is accountable is the World Bank, which holds and controls all the aid. This will give it the chance to have even more of a diktat than it has in the past thirty years. . . There are no internal controls, and Parliament doesn't have to receive reports, nor does it have any oversight. The CIRH is only for the rich. . ." Full story: truthout.org

US faces same Problems as Greece, says Bank of England
May 13, 2010 Mervyn King, Governor of the Bank of England, fears that America shares many of the same fiscal problems currently haunting Europe. He also believes that European Union must become a federalised fiscal union (in other words with central power to tax and spend) if it is to survive. . . Barack Obama and the European leaders will have been far less pleased with his frank comments on their predicament. . .
Every country around the world is in a similar position, even the United States; the world's largest economy has a very large fiscal deficit. . . I do not want to comment on a particular measure by a particular country, but I do want to suggest that within the Euro Area it's become very clear that there is a need for a fiscal union to make the Monetary Union work. But if that is to happen there needs to be also a mechanism to enable other countries that have lost competitiveness to regain competitiveness. . . Full story: bankofengland.co.uk

Prognosis 2012: Towards a New World Social Order
May 18, 2010 The US is spending astronomical sums developing a first-strike capability, with space-based weapons systems, control-of-theater capability, forward-based 'tactical' nukes, etc. The new anti-missile systems are an important part of a first-strike strategy, reducing the ability of Russia or China to retaliate. These systems are more than just provocative. They are the modern equivalent of marching your armies up to your adversary's border.
If there is a nuclear exchange between the major powers, historians will cite all of these things I've mentioned as 'obvious signs' that war was coming. Parallels would be drawn to the pre-World War I scenario, when Germany was eclipsing Britain economically, as China is eclipsing the US now. In both cases a 'desperate attempt to maintain hegemony' would be seen as the cause of the war. . .
One way or another, the elite bankers, the masters of the universe, intend to preside over a micromanaged global system. The collapse project is now well underway, and the 'surround your enemy' project seems to be more or less completed. From a strategic perspective, there will be some trigger point, some stage in the economic collapse scenario, when geopolitical confrontation is judged to be most advantageous . . . to clear the way for the carbon-credit economy, it will be necessary for Western currencies to collapse, to become worthless, as nations become increasingly insolvent, and the global financial system continues to be systematically dismantled. The carbon currency will be introduced as an enlightened, progressive 'solution' to the crisis, a currency linked to something real, and to sustainability. The old monetary system will be demonized, and again the mythology will contain much that is true. . . Culturally, the post-capitalist era will be a bit like the medieval era, with aristocrats and lords on top, and the rest peasants and serfs. . . there is no sequestering of wealth, or building of economic empires, outside the structures of the designated bureaucracies. Entitlements are about access to resources and facilities, to be used or not used, but not to be saved and used as capital. The flow of entitlements comes downward, micromanaged from the top. It's a dole economy, at all levels, for people and governments alikethe global regimentation of consumption. As regards regimentation, the post-capitalist culture will also be a bit like the Soviet system. Here's your entitlement card, here's your job assignment, and here's where you'll be living.
For such a profound transformation to be possible, it is easy to see that a very great shock is required, on the scale of collapse and social chaos, and possibly on the scale of a nuclear exchange. There needs to be an implicit mandate to 'do whatever is necessary to get society running again'. The shock needs to leave people in a condition of total helplessness comparable to the survivors in the bombed-out rubble of Germany and Japan after World War II. Nothing less will do.

Comment: Following the earthquake is it any wonder Russia will attack and invade mainland USA? After victory they will show compassion and withdraw at the behest of the (then) Devil-incarnate pope and his federation of world religions and in the interest of world peace. At the next provocation Judaeo-Communist Russia will annihilate the Judaeo-Communist USA. After all, Russia is also a pawn of the 'City of London'.
'Carbon Capture & Burialall Carbon Cemeteries are already Full'
May 10, 2010 Perhaps the biggest waste of all is the futile quest to capture carbon dioxide from power stations, separate it, compress it, pump it long distances and force it down specially drilled bore holes, hoping it will never escape.
"The effect of CO2 on global temperature, if it exists, is so small that no one has been able to demonstrate or measure it. The touted effect exists solely in computer models whose forecasts to date have all failed. Therefore there is ZERO proven benefit for mankind in trying to capture harmless CO2 in order to bury it in carbon cemeteries. Worse, it is removing valuable plant food from the biospherea step towards global food suicide. Moreover, for every tonne of carbon buried, we bury 2.7 tonnes of the gas of lifeoxygen.
"The quantities of gas to be handled just from power stations are enormous. For every tonne of coal burnt, about 11 tonnes of gases are exhausted7.5 tonnes of nitrogen, 2.5 tonnes of CO2 and one tonne of water vapour. These are all harmless and valuable natural recycled atmospheric gases. Life on earth would be impossible without them.
"Normally these harmless gases are vented to the atmosphere after filters take out nasties like soot and noxious fumes. To capture the CO2 would require additional energy to collect the 11 tonnes of gases and separate the 2.5 tonnes of CO2 for every tonne of coal burnt. Then even more energy would be required to compress this 2.5 tonnes of CO2 and pump it to the burial site.
"All of this is possible, but the capital and operating costs will be horrendous. It is estimated that 30% - 40% of the power currently generated will be used just on carbon capture, compression and pumping. More energy still is required to produce and erect the steel for all those pumps and pipes and to drill the disposal wells. All this will chew up more coal resources and produce yet more carbon dioxide, for no benefit.
"But the real problem starts at the burial site.
"There is no vacuum occurring naturally anywhere on earthevery bit of space is occupied by solids, liquids or gases. Thus to dispose of CO2 underground requires it to be pumped AGAINST the pressure of whatever is in the pore space of the rock formation noweither natural gases or liquids. These pressures can be substantial, especially after more gas is pumped in.
"The natural gases in rock formations are commonly air, CO2, methane or rotten egg gas. The liquids are commonly fresh or salty water or, very rarely, liquid hydrocarbons.
To find a place where you could drive out oil or natural gas in order to make space to bury CO2 would be like winning the Lotterya profitable but very unlikely event. Pumping air out is costly, pumping CO2 out to make room for CO2 is pointless and releasing large quantities of salty water or rotten egg gas would create a real surface problem, unlike the imaginary threat from CO2.
"In normal times, pumping fresh water out would be seen as a boon for most locals, but these days it is probably prohibited. Naturally, some carbon dioxide will dissolve in groundwater and pressurise it, so that the next water driller in the area could get a real bonusbubbling Perrier Water on tap, worth more than oil.
"Regulating carbon dioxide is best left to the oceansthey have been doing it for millions of years. It's time for tax payers and shareholders to protest this gigantic waste of money, energy and coal resources on fantasies like carbon capture and burial. "Because, no matter where we look for space for carbon dioxide burial, we will find signs saying:

World Summit of Religious Leaders
Moscow, July 3-5, 2006 Dear internet brothers and sisters!
Welcome to our website. Here we will post various articles gathered from a variety of independent sources of information. They relate to Orthodoxy, the place of faith in the modern world, as well as carrying out various processes, which are not always apparent at first glance, but have an impact on our faith and life.

Comment: What fools these mortals be. For those with eyes to see, this is the reunion of the ten toes of iron and clay in Lucifer's totalitarian one world governmentEastern and Western Rome and the so-called Jews, prior to their destruction by Christ and the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel in the Millennium (Acts 1:6).
Interfaith Bible Study focuses on God's Compassion
May 16, 2010 Muslims, Christians and people of other faiths should witness together to God's compassion in a world where too many suffer destitution and injustice, a Muslim scholar and a Christian leader agreed during an interfaith Bible study held at a 12-16 May German church convention (Kirchentag) in Munich.
Ultimately, it is "no advantage for Jews to be Jews, Christians to be Christians, and Muslims to be Muslims," said Muslim scholar Dr Ataullah Siddiqui. What really matters, Siddiqui argued, is the "human concern" for "the poor and the needy".
For the Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit, general secretary of the World Council of Churches, "God is compassionate" and therefore asks people "to be compassionate". All human beings have a common calling "to live according to God's will in this land". . . Full story: oikoumene.org
Comment: Jesus said, "The poor are with you always, and whenever you wish you may do them good: but Me you have not always" because the Gentile dispensation is about to terminate (Mark 14:7). God's will is His unchanging Word.
Bishops to the Left of Senate Democrats on Immigration
May 6, 2010 As the US Catholic hierarchy rallies to the cause of illegal immigrants from Mexico and Central America, Catholic parishioners in Cleveland, Ohio, are protesting a plan by Bishop Richard Lennon to "downsize the diocese" and close 50 churches. The parishioners are calling themselves "Endangered Catholics" and have launched a website to save the ethnic European and black Catholic churches targeted for closure.
The closures are being blamed on financial shortfalls and "changing demographics," meaning that Hispanics have become more important to the church and whites have become less important.
Indeed, Dan Gilgoff of US News & World Report has cited evidence that four times as many Catholics are leaving the faith as are joining it but that a surge in Hispanic immigration "has offset the steady decline of white Catholics." The latest figures show that 40 percent of US Catholics are Hispanic. The same evidence shows that many immigrant workers in the US are "undocumented" and 74 percent of them are Catholic. It is this demographic, rather than moral or religious concern that is driving official Catholic concern for immigrants, legal and illegal. In fact, seventy percent of the country's largest Catholic diocese in Los Angeles, run by Cardinal Mahony, are Hispanic.
Rocco Palmo, who covers the politics of the Roman Catholic Church, recently told National Public Radio that Hispanics constitute half of other major archdioceses like New York, Chicago, and Atlanta. "It's been a staggering shift in the life of the American church," he said. This shift explains Catholic support for legalizing illegal immigrants.
In a bow to reality, Lisa Miller points out in Newsweek magazine that the bishops "have a practical stake in fighting the [Arizona] law and supporting federal immigration reform." She writes, "The number of Hispanics in America has grown from about 6 million in 1960 to about 50 million today. Nearly 70 percent of Hispanics in America are Catholic. With whites abandoning Catholicism in droves, a growing, vital American church depends on Hispanic families."
Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist, in his book, "Minutemen: The Battle to Secure America's Borders", declared, "Churches pander to illegal aliens, seeking financial windfalls when more church members come across the borders. This is especially true of the Catholic Church, because so many of the Mexicans coming here are Catholic. . ."

A Frightening Analysis
We all know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Last week there was an immigration-overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of American's finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor named Victor Davis Hansen talked about his latest book, "Mexifornia," explaining how immigrationbothlegal and illegalwasdestroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.
Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America. The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, "If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let's destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that 'An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide'."
"Here is how they do it," Lamm said: First to destroy America, "Turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country. History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar Seymour Lipset put it this way: 'The histories of bilingual and bi-cultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy. Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, and Corsicans."
Lamm went on: Second, to destroy America, "Invent 'multiculturalism' and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. I would make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal, that there are no cultural differences. I would make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.
Third, "We could make the United States a 'Hispanic Quebec' without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: 'The apparent success of our own multiethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved! Not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentrically and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.'"
Lamm said, "I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural subgroups living in America reinforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities."
"Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school."
"My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of 'Victimology.' I would get all minorities to think their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population."
"My sixth plan for America's downfall would include dual citizenship and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each otherthat is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity! Unity is what it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshiped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic Games.
A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell.
"E. Pluribus Unum"From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the 'pluribus' instead of the 'Unum,' we can balkanize America as surely as Kosovo."
"Next to last, I would place all subjects off limitsmake it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of 'diversity.' I would find a word similar to 'heretic' in the16th centurythat stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like 'racist' or 'xenophobes' halt discussion and debate."
"Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established multiculturism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of 'Victimology,' I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them."
In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said, "Lastly, I would censor Victor Davis Hanson's book, Mexifornia. His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don't read that book."
There was no applause.
A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Every discussion is being suppressed. Over100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate 'diversity.' American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in Americatake note of California and other statesto-date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell's book "1984." In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: "War is peace," "Freedom is slavery," and "Ignorance is strength".
Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy are deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don't get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially The American Dream. That was in mid-June, 2005.
"The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum" (Noam Chomsky, American linguist and US media and foreign policy critic).
God Hiding Himself in Simplicity Part II
Brother Branham's "new commission" was the 'third pull' of his ministry, the "Shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16, calling the wise and foolish virgin out from Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches to maturity "in the unity of the faith" (Matthew 25:6; Ephesians 4:13; Revelation 18:4). It was the "former [or teaching] rain" restoring Christ's end-time Bride to "the foundation of the apostles and prophetsJesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone. The whole building joined closely together in Him is growing into a temple that is holy in the Lord, in whom also you are built for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit" (Ephesians 2:20-21; Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7).
It is the divinely revealed mysteries of the "Seven Thunders" contained in the Seven Seals that literally turn our hearts back to the faith of our apostolic fathers.
Like the white limestone casing stones of the Great Pyramid cut to optical precision so that the joints are consistently one fiftieth of an inchabout the thickness of five pages of your Bible, the individual members of Christ's Body are so close knit, no manmade tradition, baptism in three Titles, Apostle's Creed, Trinity, catechism or Hail Mary, separates one precious stone from another (Ephesians 4:16; John 17:21). Typing the Church with Enoch's pyramid, Brother Branham said, "It's got to be honed. In that pyramid, you can take a razor blade, and you can't run between them rocks where the mortar was; it's so fitly put together" (The Spoken Word is the Original Seed, p. 107:5).
As Israel was Moses' house, we are Christ's house built of God's spoken Word received by grace through faith and rest. This stumbled Israel who sought to attain righteousness by the works of the Law and not by faith (Hebrews 3-4; Romans 9:31-33). The Gentiles likewise denominated after human reasoning away from the Reformers and built outside the design parameters projected down from Christ our invisible Capstone to the cornerstones of the Gospels and apostolic foundation of the pyramid below. So God sent His Prophet to restore the revelation Word upon Word, line upon line, from Genesis to Revelationto show how the saints of one dispensation blend seamlessly into the next, until the whole Body conforms to the Headstone.
While he waited upon the Lord in Tucson for the fulfillment of the visions and dreams recounted in "Is This the Sign of the End, Sir?" his tabernacle in Jeffersonville was restored on a strong natural foundation. Instead of a mud and sawdust floor, "it's undergirded with steel and setting on the ground built up strong." When he returned to deliver the revelation of the Seven Seals as they were revealed to him, his initial address was titled "God in Simplicity," a retrospect in which he rehearsed simple instructions on attitude, conduct and order in service and the duties and responsibilities of officeholders. Having been dedicated thirty years beforehand, Branham Tabernacle had reached the mature age upon which Christ and ministers under the Law commenced public service. Having attained to justification, sanctification and the baptism with the Holy Ghost it was time for the Body of Christ to go on to perfection in the Capstone, and the Prophet rededicated his Church: the congregation, not the building, for the beauty of the Church is the character of its people.
I Chronicles 17:1-8, "After David had been living in his palace for some time, he said to Nathan the prophet, Look, I am living in a cedar-paneled palace while the ark of the Lord's covenant is under a tent."
"Nathan replied to David, Do all that is in your heart; for God is with you. But that night the Word of God came to Nathan: Go, tell My servant David, Thus saith the Lord, You shall not build Me a house to dwell in. From the day that I brought up Israel to this day I have not dwelt in a house; but I have gone from tent to tent, and from one tabernacle to another. Wherever I have journeyed with all Israel, did I ever mention one word to any of the judges of Israel, whom I commanded to shepherd My people, saying: Why have you not built Me a cedar-lined Temple?
Tell My servant David, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, I took you from the pasture, from following the sheep, to be ruler over My people Israel: I have been with you in all of your undertakings, and have cut off all your enemies from before you, and I will make your name of equal reputation to that of the greatest men on earth".
Brother Branham said, "David saw the same thing that we saw"speaking of his "tent vision"the repository of the covenant under a tent of skins. Despite his humble birth and upbringing, William Branham foreran Christ's second Coming as John the Baptist foreran His first Coming and the Lord made him a ruler over Spiritual Israel, ranking his name among the greatest men on earth: Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, John the Baptist, Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Martin Luther, and John Wesley.
Since the day of Pentecost, Christ has dwelt in tents of the mortal flesh of His elect by one baptism with the Holy Spirit to the next baptism with the Holy Spirit, from tent to tent and Church Age to Church Age. As there had been no Word prophet since Paul to "finish the mystery of God" He did not question any of the Messengers of PART-Word, "Why have you not raised up the flesh of My Bride to glorification (Genesis 9:27; Hebrews 9:21-24; see Spreading God's Tent)?
This Capstone of the Seven Thunders is formed in the "little room" of Brother Branham's tent vision. The Lord said, "I'll meet you in there; that'll be the third pull. This will not be a public show like [Laodicea] Pentecost had it." Looking at a diagram of the Great Pyramid we see the "little room" is the prophet's chamber just before the "King's Chamber" which we enter by the 'third pull' of the opening of the Word or revelation of the Seven Seals. As on the day of Pentecost when a hundred and twenty in one mind were secreted in a little room, He meets you in the little room of faith in your heart.
Brother Branham said, "Go into the prophet's chamber and watch them seven steps. Where did the guard meet the challenge to bring the comer into the presence of the king at the top of the steps? Was in the seventh step. There shows that we've got to come again with that same Spirit that was on John. He introduced the Messiah; he was greater than all the prophets; he introduced It."
"And we've got to come to a place again, to something that's going to introduce the Messiah [Revelation 4:1-2]. And how will the people that's believing Him know it, unless they're constantly in the Word to know what He is [i.e. Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7]. Daniel said the wise shall know, but the foolish, the unwise wouldn't know. They shall know their God." Now, now, how He said it'll appear in the last days is to bring the people back to the Word, so that the Bride will know Her Husband, know Her Mate, the revealed Word. That's why this has to happen. It wasn't in the Reformers; wasn't in Luther, Wesley, and the Pentecostals, and them; the Scripture says it wasn't. But it will come; that is His promise for this age."
"We're living in the age that His coming will be in. She must be identified in Him. Any woman must be identified with her husband, for the two are one. And Christ's Bride has to be identified with Him, for the two are one, and He is the Word, not the denomination, the Word. We are to be the children of the Light, and the Light is the Word which is made Light for this age. How do we know Light, except it comes from the Word. All right. The Word made flesh is the Light of the age when you see it; the Bible said so" (The Feast of the Trumpets, p. 15:112-115).
God, hiding Himself in simplicity
The above diagram from Brother Morris Ungren's book, The Mount of God (The Story of the Great Pyramid), shows the granite leaf or "falling stone" door. It represents the 'parousia' Coming of the Logos foretold in Matthew 24:3 signified by the Pillar of Cloud photographed on February 28, 1963, the Stone that will smite the fourth Gentile world empire, which divided into Eastern and Western Rome, after its ten multicultural toes of iron and clay reunite in Lucifer's totalitarian one world government. "And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of pottery, the kingdom will be partly strong, and partly brittle. And whereas you saw the iron mixed with clay of mud, they will combine with the seed of men; [Rome's covenant with the self-styled Jews (Daniel 9:27)]; but they will not adhere together, even as iron does not combine with pottery." Thereafter the Kingdom will be restored to Israel under David's greater Son, Jesus Messiah, as revealed in Daniel 2:40-45 (4:3, 34; 6:26; 7:14, 27; Isaiah 9:6-7; Ezekiel 37:25; Acts 1:6; Revelation 19).
Looking up, "the boss" or protuberance on the granite leaf is a combination of the Greek letters Alpha and Omega, describing a halo or nimbus over a full loaf of bread at the top of the pyramid meaning the Capstone revelation of Christ's end-time Bride for the "new meat offering" of two loaves of bread baked with leaven, hence "the boss" is offset from the center by one inch representing the imperfection of our unredeemed flesh, waved before the Lord in the manifestation of the Sons of God for acceptance by the 'third pull,' our body change and resurrection of the Church Age saints (Leviticus 23;15-21; Hebrews 11:39-40). Malachi 4:1-3: "Behold, the day is coming, burning like a furnace; when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble: and the day that is coming will burn them up, says the Lord of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. But for you who revere My Name, the Sun of righteousness will arise with healing in its wings [for your glorification]; and you will go forth [into the millennium], and leap like calves let out for pasture. And you will 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".
When Brother Branham was describing the New Jerusalem he said: "There is another measure, the pyramid that proves it" (The Future Home of the Heavenly Bridegroom and the Earthly Bride, p. 44:372). The boss on the granite leaf, whose amber colour represents the Shekinah, is the key to the lineal measurement of the prophetic galleries within the Bible in Stone of one pyramid inch to the year, as the Seventh Seal of the printed Bible is the key by means of which redemption is revealed. The boss projects one pyramid inch above the face of the granite leaf, and is, as we have said, offset from the center by one pyramid inch.
As the Lord said to Nathan, tell David, "I have been with you in all of your undertakings, and have cut off all your enemies from before you, and I will make your name of equal reputation to that of the greatest men on earth," the Angel of the Lord told Brother Branham: "You have been borned in this world to take a gift of Divine healing to the people. Many will not believe you; yet many will. If you'll be sincere and will get the people to believe you, not even cancer shall stand before your prayer" (At Thy Word Lord, #48-0305).
"On May the seventh, 1946, Green's Mill, Indiana, there was an Angel come into the room where I was at, a Man walking. He didn't have wings; He was just a big man, had a white garment down to His feet. And He said that I was born to pray for sick people. And I told Him I was uneducated, illiterate, and I wasn't able to go. He said I'd be praying for kings and monarchs and, Message around the world, a Message that would bring the second Coming of Christ was near. And I told Him I couldn't do it. And He told me then for me to put my hands on the people and it would be told what was wrong. [His 'first pull']. He said, "Then, if you'll be sincere, it'll come to pass that you'll even know the secrets of their heart," [his 'second pull'] and said, "by this they will believe" (Prayer Line, #53-1127).
David wanted to build God a house, but God instructed him through Nathan the prophet that because he was surrounded by wars on every side he could not build the House of the Lord. "Furthermore, I tell you that the Lord will build you a house. . . And when your days are fulfilled, and you sleep with your fathers, I will raise up your seed after you, and I will establish his kingdom. He will build a House for My Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever." Acts 4:47-50, "Solomon built Him a House; however the Most High does not dwell in a building made with human hands; as the prophet says: Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool: what sort of house will you build Me? says the Lord: or what is the place of My rest? Has not My hand made all these things?" When the real Seed came, David's greater Son, He said concerning Jerusalem's Temple, "There shall not be one stone left standing upon another" (Matthew 24:2). And He tried to point Israel to "a greater and more perfect tabernacle . . . a building of God, a House not made with hands, eternal in the heavens" (I Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 9:11; Revelation 21:2-3).
John saw this new Temple descending from God out of heaven, adorned as a Bride for her husband, and a great Voice out of heaven said, "Behold, the Tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. And He will wipe all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things are passed away".
Neither David nor Solomon could build this true Tabernacle, which Jesus would prepare through two thousand years of mediation for the ignorance of the Church Age saints whose imperfect revelation of PART-Word would otherwise not fit them for redemption and their place in God's Temple, thus the angels to the Seven Church Ages could not prepare it. But when the last saint predestinated to the PART-Word Body was born-again in 1963, Christ's Mediation was fulfilled, and redemption was over because His end-time Bride and the 144,000 elect Israelites were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary as we are all predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word Brother Branham introduced at the Builder's second or 'parousia' Coming. Many people from different places photographed the sign of His Coming (Revelation 1:7, 14; Daniel 7:9; Matthew 26:64; Acts 1:9-11) which was published worldwide in newspapers, magazines and scientific journals, but of the millions who have seen the pictures, few will be stones raised up as children to Abraham (Matthew 3:9).
His Coming, shown on the main page of our Church Website, was hidden from the wise and prudent in the simplicity of His promised Word, and revealed unto babes (Matthew 11:25-27).
Isaiah 53:1 asks, "Who has believed our report? And to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed"? In other words, the arm of the Lord is revealed to those who have believed our report. Many people miss Him because of the simplicity in which He reveals Himself. They look back through the Bible, praising God for the great things He has done in anticipation of His future promises, but overlook the present Truthwhat Jesus is doing now, because they fail to recognize the simple means He employed to accomplish them.
Men visit the Great Pyramid, an antediluvian structure build by an advanced civilization employing superior technology based no doubt on the simplicity of a far deeper understanding of natural laws than we have today. This ancient stone in Baalbek was hewn from a single block and weighs at least 1,070 tons. No modern crane could move it. This column 13'5" x 15'6" x 69'11", was hewn as one solid piece and weighs 1,200 tons. Contrast the size of the two men (encircled). Its two cousins in place in the base of the "Temple of Jupiter" each weigh over 1,000 tons. In the Great Pyramid, granite blocks weighting 40 to 60 tons were raised hundreds of feet above ground level to form the relieving chambers above the King's chamber. In the same generation, Noah build a three-decked wooden vessel 525' long, with a beam of 87'6" and a height of 52'6", and pitched with bitumen to make it water tight. The aircraft carrier USS Enterprise launched four thousand years later, and set to retire in 2013 with 51 years of continuous service, is just twice the size of Noah's ark measuring 1,123' with a beam of 132'8" at the waterline.
With faith in the simple Message of God, Noah sawed and hammered away on his ark through 120 years of ridicule by the unbelievers. It had never rained and in a world of more than six billion souls, Noah was the only man working out his own salvation with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart. At over a hundred years of age, Abraham was preparing to sacrifice his only son, trusting in the simple Word of God's promise, that "in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars, and as the sand upon the sea shore; and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies" (Genesis 22:17).
As the Word found rest in the saints of yore, it must find its resting place in our hearts so that we "stagger not at the promise of God through unbelief; but are strong in faith, giving glory to God" (Romans 4:20): for we must walk by faith in the simplicity of God's revealed Word if we are to enter His rest.
Jesus hates nicolaitanism, which is a clerical hierarchy between the laity and the Lord. He said, "You are not to be called Rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all on the same level as brothers. And call no man on earth your father, for you have One Father, who is in heaven; neither be called teachers, for you have one Teacher, the Christ. But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant; for whoever exalts himself shall be humbled, whoever humbles himself will be exalted" (Matthew 23:8-12; Revelation 2:6, 15).
Although God's criteria does not restrict persons of wealth and station or the learned, Jesus said, "It will be difficult for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven," because of his natural unwillingness to surrender his trust in and love of earthly possessions for faith in the revealed Word of God. A rich man may certainly enter the kingdom of heaven, but not as a rich man: "for it is easier for a camel with its hump and huge bulk to pass through the eye of a needle, the narrow gate for pedestrians through the city wall adjacent to the wide gate than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God" (Matthew 19:23-24).
Rich or poor, skilled and lettered or ignorant and unlearned, we must serve the Lord under preeminence by grace through faith. In this day of spiritual famine, impending judgment and damnation, we should simplify our lives, drawing nigh to God who abides in men of genuine, not manufactured humility.
Jacob and Esau were born of the same holy parents, but whereas Esau sought to make his own destiny without faith, and despised the birthright for worldly pursuits, Jacob overcame through faith in the promises of God, and physically wrestled Him in the form of a created Man until his righteous prayer was granted. His heritage is the Israel nation and Messiah, whereas Esau's heritage is their enemy, the polluted line of Jewry.
Born of Hebrew slaves, Moses was raised to be Pharaoh, trained in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and mighty in words and deeds. Knowing God's calling, he applied his abilities to deliver Israel through an insurrection, but God humbled him to preeminence forty years in the desert, then sent him back to deliver Israel by the 'third pull' of the invincible authority of His spoken Word.
The unchanging God tabernacled in a Man born in a stable to an unknown girl who was pregnant while she was betrothed to His foster father, a common carpenter. And at His second Coming He veiled Himself behind the tabernacle of William Branham, whose alcoholic father made moonshine whiskey in the days of prohibition, as a consequence of which his impoverished family gained a bad name, and ill-dressed young William was made a laughing stock to his school mates.
Centuries before Messiah's birth, Isaiah 40:1-3 and Malachi 2:1 prophesied His forerunner, John the Baptist, who came from the wilderness not the temple; and God came to Israel's virgin-born Temple rather than the Esau's Herodian temple. This Scriptural simplicity did not match the theological expectations of natural Israel who rejected John and Messiah, despite Isaiah's prophecy: "Comfort My people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and shout to her that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned, and that she has received from the Lord's hand double for all her sins." The simplicity of John's Message was too sublime for natural Israel, who refused "the acceptable Day of the Lord," and their Jubilee from bondage to the Law. But the elect of God have received it, demonstrating the Israel of God is not Semitic, and not Jewish: God's Chosen People are those predestinated to be saints from every nation, tribe and tongue of Adam's race as foretold in Isaiah 29:10-11 (Romans 11:7-8).
As John bridged the way between Law and grace, Brother Branham stood in the gap between the Capstone of the holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the antitype of Israel's Pentecostal feast when the fullness of the Word returned as Son of man and Judge, and the Church Ages of PART-Word and Christ's mediation were done away. John foretold this Coming, "His fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly purge His floor, and gather His wheat into the garner; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire." It is so simple, it has flown over the heads of the wise and prudent: first the Holy Spirit is gathering the denominational thorns and briers ready for the burning, and once they are in ecumenical union, He will gather the wheat into His garner, and smite Earth with a curse (Matthew 12:3; 25:30, 37-43; Malachi 4:6).
The church world is looking for Christ's second Coming through denominational glasses instead of the eyes of Melchisedec. After He has departed, taking His Bride to the wedding supper in the sky, unaware of His Coming and going "as a thief in the night," they will fulfill Peter's prophecy saying: "Where is the promise of His Coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation".
John's ministry was so simple, even his disciples, some of whom became Jesus' disciples, did not realize he was the Elijah of Malachi 3:1 (Matthew 17:10-12; Acts 19:1-5). All in the circle of this Message know that Brother Branham was the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6 but few have recognized Christ's second Coming. And the rapture is so simple, the world church system has no idea it has been in process forty-seven years. After the saints have been gathered Home and judgments begin to fall, nominal Christians, like John's disciples will ask: "Why does the Bible say Elijah must first come and restore all things"? Although his ministry was a parade of the Supernatural, Brother Branham was so humble and His Message so simple, the world church system will know no more about the rapture when it has passed than they know about it now while it is in process.
People are looking for the Sun darkening at its zenith, the full Moon turning to blood, and the stars falling from heaven, but these physical manifestations will not take place until "immediately after the tribulation of the Gentile dispensation" (Matthew 24:29). Spiritually, they have taken place already. The Light of the SON no longer shines upon the denominational churches, which put Him without their camp in 1963 (Revelation 3:17-20), and the Moon, which types the church, has turned to blood because it is no longer reflecting the Son-Light but ministering Death as the stars of heaven or denominational ministers are falling as "angels who kept not their first estate in the Word," and Christ has returned as Judge (Matthew 3:12; John 5:27). Newsletter 632 showed photographs of these Spiritual signs written in the heavens and witnessed unrecognized by Christendom worldwide.
Before the fall Adam was the son of God with the Attributes of His father and inheritor of Earth. As a son of God he was a creator himself, he could exercise the 'third pull' and control nature. But when he separated His relationship to the Word he forfeited his dominion to Satan and became a sinner by nature. Unbelief caused the fall and brought death but the consequences of the fall can be counteracted by applying death's antidote: not by works but belief in God's provided way of grace through faith in His revealed Word, as demonstrated in simplicity when He killed two lambs and placed Adam and Eve under their blood. In simplicity He taught Israel, "the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is blood that makes an atonement for the soul" (Leviticus 17:11). But ignoring the prophets and the fact there can be no redemption in animal blood because animals are not kin to man and have no soul that can come back upon a man, Israel took these instructions literally. They were natural shadows and types exemplifying a Spiritual antitype when Jehovah would display His Attribute as Saviour in the birth, life and accepted Sacrifice of Messiah.
When penitents of Adam's race apply this antidote by grace through faith in the Word for their day, not intellectual learning or traditions like Catechisms and false baptisms in three Titles, their sins are not just forgiven, they are remitted and placed on Satan's account as Peter taught (Acts 2:38-39). And their soul regenerated to spotless, sinless perfection like the souls of Adam and Eve before the Fall, taking them back across the Chasm where they are recognized as Sons in perfect fellowship with the Father.
There is only one way provided whereby man is restored to fellowship and eternal Life, for the Life is in the blood and we are the Blood of Christ by the baptism with the Holy Ghost. Because you were predestinated in Christ the Logos, your Name was written in the Lamb's Book of Life from eternity and you were accounted in Christ on Calvary where you paid for your sins. Being dead and risen in His resurrection you are free from condemnation, for "it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the Judgment" (John 3:18; Romans 8:1; Hebrews 9:27). You were once judged, condemned and received the death penalty in Christ on Calvary, but God declared you innocent: when He raised Christ for your justification, He raised you in Him; now you are free from death and alive evermore (Romans 4:25; II Corinthians 5:13-21).
The 'third pull' operates by your oneness with God under preeminence to His revealed Word as Jesus prayed in John 17:21-26, receiving the mind of Christ in a situation and expressing that thought in speech. Redemption is identification by faith or understanding with Christ's substitutionary sacrifice, proving you are predestinated and one of those for whom Christ died. This is the simplicity of re-aligning yourself with the Logos.
Moses exercised the 'third pull' under the blood of bulls and goats; when Moses spoke flies into existence he was simply expressing God's thought under preeminence. When Joshua did likewise at the battle of Jericho, the walls came tumbling down; and again when he said, "Sun, stand still upon Gibeon; and you, Moon, stand over the valley of Ajalon." Jesus said, "If you abide in Me, and My Words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it will be done for you" (John 15:7).
If Moses and Joshua could do those things under the blood of bulls and goats, we should not stumble over the simplicity of John 15:7. "Whoever says to this mountain, Be removed, and be cast into the sea; and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass; shall have whatever he says. Therefore, Whatever things you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them" (Mark 1:23-24).
The 'third pull' is nothing you can do but revelation from God whereby you may receive the substance of His promise. And the rapture is a revelation, not a theological interpretation; to participate in the rapture you must live the revelation and "render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and to God the things that are God's" (Matthew 22:21; 4:4).
Brother Branham said, "Now I want to ask you a question, brethren, sisters. If God let all this happen because Eve disbelieved one little phase of the Word, and caused humanity to get to the place it's in, do you think we'll ever get back, disbelieving any phase of it? Think of it. If God could see little babies suffering, wars and troubles, famines and starvations, sickness and murder; and all these things has taken place, all because one little phase of His Word was doubted. Do you think we'll ever get back, doubting one phase of it? If it cost all of this, will He let you back free, let you go anywhere, say, "I don't. Can't understand it. I don't believe it anyhow"? No."
"You've got to believe all of it, no matter how humble it seems. Believe it anyhow. Say, "Well, I don't understand it." Believe it anyhow. You're not supposed to understand it. You're supposed to believe it. Just believe it anyhow. Now, that's way we are today, the same thing, that God".
"It's just like an army going to fight. We got spies in England. England has got spies here. The spies are in and out, around the world. Why? They're searching out our military secrets. When we find some kind of a military secret, as soon as they can find it, they take the same thing, or something, to combat it. It's a warfare."
"The greatest warfares, gone on, is a spiritual warfare" (God Hiding Himself in Simplicity, p. 15:104-106).
We are now in the prophet's chamber about to enter the King's Chamber for the resurrection and Millennium. The revelation of the Seven Seals we will be studying is the 'third pull' that will take us there. It is God opening His Word to you through the mouth of His Prophet. nl633.htm
