"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
This week's news items demonstrate how our Hegelian controlled party political pseudo-democratic systems have usurped governments, even presidencies, from citizens to aliens, oligarchs and plutocrats. Our main article presents the revelation of the First Seal and follows the exposition of our Lord through His Prophet, William Branham.
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.
FEMA: Plans to Evacuate Tampa Bay Area in Place?
June 27, 2010 FEMA has plans to evacuate the Tampa Bay area in the event of a controlled burn of surface oil in the Gulf of Mexico, or if wind or other conditions are expected to take toxic fumes through Tampa Bay, according to a report by Maryann Tobin in the Hernando County Political Buzz Examiner. . . Full story: salem-news.com
As you know, the oil leaks in the Gulf have sent underwater plumes of toxic crude with benzene, hydrogen sulphide and methane in it to our coasts. This crude is made aromatic by even more toxic Corexit dispersants so that it evaporates and blows ashore, rains ashore, or can be dropped ashore by hurricanes. Health hazards from crude oil include contamination of drinking water and the possible evacuation of residents of the Gulf Coast.
Full story: sciencecorps.org
We have found out from police and military insiders that martial law and evacuations are planned by the government when the toxic and explosive gases from these plumes on the coast reach 14% in the atmosphere. Last I knew, this had already reached 6%-7% in southeast Louisiana and has made many sick. Their worst case projection for the 14% saturation on the Gulf coast was June 15-20, and on the East coast July 1-10. I doubt that this will happen by then but the military is constantly checking the saturation rate along the coast and they don't tell us what it is. For some time the Lord, Who is in control of the winds, had been sending them from the north and kept the crude and Corexit smell mostly off the Florida coast. A few days ago, I smelled it as I walked around a few blocks, then didn't smell it anymore. I thought I was imagining things until I felt the crud in my chest the next day. The lack of smell could have been the hydrogen sulphide working. Many have not smelled it here but some are having all the symptoms of it: headaches, nausea, coughing, congestion, weakness/tiredness, etc., Full story: tribulation-now.com; youtube.comPart II.
New Orleans independent geologist Jack M. Reed believes the origin of earthquakes along the New Madrid seismic zone lie beneath the Gulf of Mexico. The New Madrid Fault extends from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes (click on image to enlarge). A retired Texaco geologist-geophysicist who has been studying the region's geology for over 40 years, Reed says the accepted theory of a quiet geologic evolution of the Gulf of Mexico Basin is fundamentally flawed and needs to be revised. According to him, the Gulf was and is tectonically activeand is the likely origin for not only the New Madrid seismic activity, but also for the Middleton Place-Summerville seismic zone near Charleston, S.C. There is an apparent connection of the New Madrid seismic zone with the Gulf rift features to the south. This northeast trending earthquake zone appears to connect with the northeast trending Monroe Uplift, the La Salle Arch and, possibly, to an active seismic zone located in and around Sabine Lake on the Texas-Louisiana border. . . If the New Madrid seismic zone is indeed part of a triple juncture, he continued, there should be an expression of this limb trending along a line in a northeast direction. . ."
"This entire zone through the United States is suffering some type of tectonic activity that I believe is tied to the deeply buried tectonics in the Gulf of Mexico. . . The earthquakes in the New Madrid seismic zone and other locations along the theorized rift zone that cuts across the United States as well as the Middleton Place-Summerville seismic zone in South Carolina are tied to the tectonic movement in the Gulf of Mexico Basin," he said.
So, the obvious question for Reed is, what's the exploration potential of this rift zone that cuts through North America? "Not much," Reed conceded. "However, if you want waterfront property you should buy land around Indianapolis. In a couple of million years this acreage could be overlooking the Strait of America that separates western (and) eastern America"! Full story: aapg.org
Comment: Brother Branham said, when Los Angeles sinks, "waves will shoot plumb out to the state of Kentucky. And when it does, it'll shake the world so hard that everything on top of it will shake down" (A Thinking Man's Filter, p. 25:145). This seems to indicate the San Andreas Fault might trigger activity along the New Madrid Fault. Furthermore he said, "Here on the [Florida] coast, which we know will someday go beneath the ocean, and there won't be a stone left upon another" (Christ is Identified the Same, #64-0415). The map shows a fault line runs from the La Salle Arch beneath the New Madrid Fault in the Gulf, cuts through Florida and continues to Charleston in South Carolina. See Newsletters 212, 245, 392, 394, and 420 in which links refer to warnings by British, Russian and US scientists in 2005 that the Great Lakes are heating up and the New Madrid fault is "coiling up like a springat a rate comparable to the San Andreas Fault".
Interestingly, the Russian scientists observed that the Atlantic sea bed is rising, and Mr. Reed observed "doming" in the New Madrid seismic region and in the Gulf into which BP has drilled. Should the US deploy a bomb to seal the oil flow, could it excite the New Madrid Fault? Authorities were well-aware of seismic forces and geological anomalies in the Gulf and their utility in a 'false flag' op.
"US Geological Survey seismologist Lucy Jones remembers attending an emergency training session in August 2001 with the Federal Emergency Management Agency that discussed the three most likely catastrophes to strike the United States. First on the list was a terrorist attack in New York. Second was a super-strength hurricane hitting New Orleans. Third was a major earthquake on the San Andreas fault."
"Now that the first two have come to pass, she and other earthquake experts are using the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Katrina as an opportunity to reassess how California would handle a major temblor" (latimes.com).
Two out of three. 'Well-connected' and prescient, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) who 'handled' the 9/11 report and Hurricane Katrina, is always ahead of the game with over 800 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. All are staffed and surrounded by full-time guards, and all are empty. F.D. Roosevelt assured us that "If something happens in politics, you can bet [that in this wicked and adulterous generation] it was planned that way".
How I wish I was Wrong
June 25, 2010 Those who determine every step of the worst enemy of humanityUnited States imperialism, a mixture of ignoble material interests, disdain and underestimation for other people inhabiting the planethave calculated everything with mathematical precision. . .
Fanaticism for sport is growing incessantly, captivating hundreds of millions and possibly billions of people all over the planet. On the other hand, one would have to ask how many of them know that, since June 20, US military vessels, including the Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier, escorted by one or more nuclear submarines and other warships with missiles and cannons that are more powerful that those of the old battleships utilized in the last world war from 1939 to 1945, have been navigating toward Iranian coasts via the Suez Canal.
The yanki naval forces are accompanied by Israeli military boats, with equally sophisticated armaments, to inspect every vessel that leaves to export and import commercial products required for the functioning of the Iranian economy. . . Today, in 2010, after 31 years, both the United States and Israel are underestimating the one million soldiers in the Iranian Armed Forces and their capacity for fighting on land, and the air, sea and land forces of the Revolutionary Guards.
In addition to these, there are the 20 million men and women, aged from 12 to 60, selected and systematically trained by its diverse military institutions, from out of the 70 million people who inhabit the country. . . Full story: Fidel Castro
Crisis and whispers
June 11, 2010 The ultimate aim is to oblige the Europeans to enter into an Atlantic bloc, i.e. an empire where Anglo-American budgetary deficits would be automatically financed through the expedient of a dollarized euro. The agreement concluded between the European Union and the IMF, giving the Fund partial oversight of Union economic policies, is a first step in this direction . . .
By way of a provisionary conclusion, if the EU, facing crisis, advances at forced march towards central economic control, a stage will be reached whereby quasi-discretionary power will be granted to the European Commissionfor the most part composed of non-elected technocrats and recruitsfor a stainless Atlanticist allegiance. To put it plainly, this will signify the obliteration of the European nation states.
In reality, nothing can prevent the integration of Europe within a trans-Atlantic Bloc. In the end, the merging of the euro with the dollar will accelerate the union of the old world and the new world. This conclusion is evidently not a matter of pure speculation but a simple projection of the architectonic tendencies visibly at work in the framework of a process of redistribution or of geopolitical recomposition of the global map. Sufficient to say that if the euro zone does not break apart, the fate of the European peoples seems definitely sealed, tied for better or worse to the manifest destiny of the United States; and this irrespective of a 'reform' of the global economic system.
The financiers will perhaps get their fingers burnt if the international community agrees to curb their appetites in regulating the markets, but the fact remains that the promoters of constructive chaos will have won this hand as they set out to recreate the conditions for new conflagrations.
The worst case scenario, often evoked in France by such influential men as Bernard Kouchner and Jacque Attali, happens to be the least improbable at a time when governments, backs to the wall, see themselves condemned to fleeing headlong into the unknown. In Kuwait in 1991, in Iraq in 2003 among the thinly disguised objectives of war, the boosting of the economic machinery through plans of reconstruction was high on the list. Not to mention other more flagrant and immediate interests such as fossil fuels, arms sales and all the related industries.
Whatever the accords between Turkey and Iran on uranium enrichment for medical purposes, whatever the related diplomatic annoyance for the State Department, it suffices to re-read the fabulist Jean de la Fontaine to know that the rhetoric of the wolf always prevails over that of the lamb! In a situation of extreme fragility of the global economy, one must await an end to the crisis at the harrowing door of the chaos constructor. . .

'Black Bloc' as fraudulent as Al Qaeda and G20 SCAM
June 27, 2010 Toronto is right now in the midst of a massive government/media propaganda fraud. As events unfold, it is becoming increasingly clear that the 'Black Bloc' are undercover police operatives engaged in purposeful provocations to eclipse and invalidate legitimate G20 citizen protest by starting a riot. Government agents have been caught doing this before in Canada.
At the 'Security and Prosperity Partnership' meeting protests at Montebello Quebec on August 20, 2007, a Quebec union leader caught and outed three masked undercover Quebec Provincial Police operatives dressed as 'black bloc' protestors about to start a riot by throwing rocks at the security police. See the following videos documenting this event . . .
In classic covert counterinsurgency strategy these agents manipulate the group to commit violent acts which play directly into hidden government controllers' hands. These controllers manipulate public opinion from behind the scenes through the commission of false flag acts of violence (these are acts falsely blamed on scapegoats other than those concealed perpetrators who are actually responsible). The psychological operation (psyop) is then accomplished through the propaganda fulminations of the completely controlled and complicit mass media. As in so many similar situations in so many other countries in the past, the goal of this combination of violent acts and lying media propaganda is to invalidate any legitimate citizen protest of the many immoral acts being wreaked upon the peoples of the world by our governments. The techniques of imperial control which have been used so successfully overseas are now being fully deployed against the people at home. Deployed against us; as far as our war-addicted governments are concerned, we are all insurgents now.

When False Flags won't Fly
April 19, 2010 Those who have studied history know that nothing invigorates and empowers an authoritarian regime more than a spectacular act of violence, some sudden and senseless loss of life that allows the autocrat to stand on the smoking rubble and identify himself as the hero. It is at moments like this that the publicstill in shock from the horror of the tragedy that has just unfolded before themcan be led into the most ruthless despotism: despotism that now bears the mantle of "security."
Acts of terror and violence never benefit the average man or woman. They only ever benefit those in positions of power. . . The Russians are learning how the FSB was caught planting bombs in Moscow in the 1990s during a terror scare that swept Putin into power and stirred the public into supporting the Second Chechen War. They are learning how their autocratic ex-President came to power campaigning on the graves of those his old FSB cronies had killed.
The Israelis are learning how Mossad has been caught time and again posing as the very Muslim terrorists they claim to be opposing. . . The British are learning how their SAS officers were caught dressing up as Arabs in Iraq, driving around with trucks full of munitions, shooting at police to stir up ethnic tensions and insure that permanent bases could be built in the region. They are learning how Haroon Aswat, the supposed mastermind behind the 7/7 bombings, was working for British Intelligence. . .
The Indians are learning how the Mumbai attack was helped by an US Agent who is cooperating with investigators so that he won't face questioning by foreign authorities.
The Canadians are learning how their own provincial police dressed up as protestors in 2007 and threatened violence against other police in order to force a crackdown on peaceful protests. . . And the Americans are learning that there were multiple bombs found, dismantled and taken out of the Alfred P. Murrah building on April 19, 1995. They are learning that Timothy McVeigh had written a letter to his sister in which he claimed to be in the Special Forces for the US Army. They are learning the bombing was being directed by FBI informants, just as the 1993 World Trade Center bombing was. They are learning about 9/11 and the Gulf of Tonkin and Operation Northwoods and their own Army Counterinsurgency Manuals that teach officers how to commit false flag attacks to blame on their enemies.
In short, the people are learning the truth. . . They are not terrorists for pointing out that the FBI and the CIA and Mossad and MI6 are behind every major terrorist event. Full story: corbettreport.com (see video ).
General McChrystal misses His Chance
June 27, 2010 Why didn't General Stanley McChrystal just tell Ol'bummer that he would come back from Afghanistan to the White House as soon as Obama sent McChrystal his (Obama's) birth certificate proving that he (Obama) was an American citizen and therefore rightfully occupying the office of President?
This would have caused a constitutional crisisbut the kind of constitutional crisis we desperately need . . . since Ol'bummer cannot produce his birth certificate, and since he is sitting in the White House, he is being protected by very powerful forcesforces which can control and contain the US Supreme Court, many lower courts, the state government of Hawaii, the five Big TV Networks, and on and on.
The military men, Sheriffs, police chiefs, deputies and policemen exhibit unquestioned PHYSICAL courage. . . What is needed from our nation's military leaders, police chiefs, and Sheriffsis some MORAL AND INTELLECTUAL COURAGE. They need to speak out against the takeover and take-down of our country NOW. This is where McChrystal missed his chance.
In case they have all missed it, we are under occupation government by the Rothschild/FED/Goldman Sachs banking powers working with the organized Jewish/Israeli Lobby, such as AIPAC, ADL, etc., OL'BUMMER is the current top agent, hit man, and puppet for the Elite behind the FED/Goldman Sachs cabal in their war to take over total control of the USA.

Comment: Council on Foreign Relations founding father Edward Mandel House had set down his political ideas in his book called "Philip Dru: Administrator" in 1912. In this book House laid out a thinly fictionalized plan for conquest of America by establishing "Socialism as dreamed by Karl Marx." He described a "conspiracy," the word is his, which succeeds in electing a US President by means of "deception regarding his real opinions and intentions." Among other things, House wrote that the conspiracy was to insinuate "itself into the primaries, in order that no candidate might be nominated whose views were not in accord with theirs." Elections were to become mere charades conducted for the bedazzlement of the booboisie. The idea was to use both the Democrat and Republican parties as instruments to promote World Government.
In 1919 House met in Paris with members of a British "secret society" called The Round Table in order to form an organization whose job it would be to propagandize the citizens of America, England and Western Europe on the globes of World Government. The big selling point, of course was "peace." The part about the Insiders establishing a world dictatorship quite naturally was left out (Gary Allen, None Dare Call it Conspiracy, Ch. 5, Establishing the Establishment).
Council on Foreign Relations members have unlawfully and knowingly combined, conspired, and agreed to substantially contribute to the establishment of one world order under the direction and the control of members of Council on Foreign Relations, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, The Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg group and members of their branch organizations in various nations throughout the world. That is totalitarianism on a global scale.
'Carbon Tax'Signpost to the New Dark Age
June 29, 2010 Big governments love carbon taxes. They promise a bountiful political dividend of tax receipts and green votes. Carbon produces heat, light, food and transport for the modern world. A carbon tax will inevitably reduce the production of these essentialsit is a signpost on the road to a new dark age.
- The tax harvest will feed the climate change industry, provide eternal corporate welfare for alternate energy speculators, and allow politicians to buy votes with handouts for favoured mendicants.
- But a carbon tax will have zero beneficial effect on earth's temperature.
- Carbon taxes will be welcomed by the solar/wind lobby. But the world now has plenty of real experiments proving the inability of these follies to generate reliable power at reasonable costSpain, Portugal, Germany, Denmark and California.
Everyone knows that if you tax something, less of it will be produced. Here are the facts:
The Danish wind industry is a strong export industry, and this makes a direct comparison with Obama's plan difficult with regard to actual job creation in the wind industry. It seems highly unlikely that large country's wind industry such as the UShaving a population of more than 50 times the population of Denmarkwould be able to replicate the Danish share of exports of wind turbine technology. In that way a US expansion is expected to be predominantly domestic, and at the same time the industry is probably going to face foreign competition from companies such as Vestas, Siemens and new low cost producers in countries like India. Based on the Danish experiences with wind power, subsidies to wind need to be significant or corresponding taxes on carbon-based electricity need to be increased substantially. The Danish experience also suggests that a strong US wind expansion would not benefit the overall economy. It would entail substantial costs to the consumer and industry, and only to a lesser degree benefit a small part of the economy, namely wind turbine owners, wind shareholders and those employed in the sector.

Comment: Britain's biggest wind farm companies are to be paid NOT to produce electricity when the wind is blowing. Energy firms will receive thousands of pounds a day per wind farm to turn off their turbines because . . . the 'intermittent' nature of wind makes such farms unreliable providers of electricity, that electricity customers are paying more than £1 billion a year to subsidise wind farms and other forms of renewable energy.

The UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change misled the press and public into believing that thousands of scientists backed its claims on manmade global warming, according to Mike Hulme, a prominent climate scientist and IPCC insider. The actual number of scientists who backed that claim was "only a few dozen experts," he states in a paper for Progress in Physical Geography, co-authored with student Martin Mahony.
"Claims such as '2,500 of the world's leading scientists have reached a consensus that human activities are having a significant influence on the climate' are disingenuous," the paper states unambiguously, adding that they rendered "the IPCC vulnerable to outside criticism "by their fruits you shall know them".
The Sinking of the Titanic
The greatest tragedies in the last two hundred years can be traced to the Jesuits. . . The Jesuits desperately wanted another central bank in America so that they would have a bottomless reservoir from which to draw money for their many wars and other hideous schemes around the world.
There were a number of very rich and powerful men who made it abundantly clear that they were not in favour of the Federal Reserve System. J.P. Morgan was ordered by the Jesuits to build the Titanic. This 'unsinkable' ship would serve as the death ship for those who opposed the Jesuits' plan for a Federal Reserve system . . . Three of the richest and most important of these were Benjamin Guggenheim, Isador Strauss, the head of Macy's Department Stores, and John Jacob Astor. . . These three men were coaxed and encouraged to board the floating palace. They had to be destroyed because the Jesuits knew they would use their wealth and influence to oppose a Federal Reserve Bank as well as the various wars that were being planned. . . Many interesting points about the Titanic are discussed in a videotape made by National Geographic in 1986, "The Secrets of the Titanic". . . Full story: pacinst.com
Comment: The above article was sourced from an Adventist website, a movement begun in 1816 by Baptist lay preacher William Miller who proclaimed Christ would return in 1843. The (Rothschild-financed) Watchtower Society, better known as Jehovah's Witnesses, formed as a breakaway group in 1879, continues its apocalyptic projections. Its founder Charles Taze Russell, Knights Templar (33o Mason, adulterer, and according to his wife, Satanist and paedophile), identified himself as the Laodicean Messenger.
According to Encyclopedia Judaica Rothschilds bear the title Guardians of the Vatican Treasury. "The appointment of Rothschild gave the black papacy absolute financial privacy and secrecy. Who would ever search a family of orthodox Jews for the key to the wealth of the Roman Catholic Church? I believe this appointment explains why the House of Rothschild is famous for helping nations go to war. It is fascinating that, as Meyer Rothschild's sons grew into the family business, the firm took on the title Meyer Amschel Rothschild und Sohne, which gives us the notariqon, MARS. Isn't Mars the Roman God of War, whose heavenly manifestation is "the red planet"? There is powerful cabalah here, and there's hardly an acre of inhabitable earth that hasn't been affected by it in some way" (Tupper Saussy, Rulers of Evil. p. 160-161; Newsletter 171).
With the exception of Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Cuba, and Libya, all countries are "managed" by a Rothschild-controlled central bank. Do you seriously believe North Korea was responsible for sinking the South Korean corvette, Cheonan? Or do you still to ponder why the US has threatened peaceful Iran, Sudan, Cuba and Libya? The Talmudic Jesuits, through whom Rothschild revived the Illuminati, is a Jewish organization that controls the Roman Catholic church organized by Judaics at the Hegelian dialectic of the First Nicaea Council. Britain's Jewish Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli wrote, "Governments do not govern, but merely control the machinery of government, being themselves controlled by the hidden hand".
The First Seal Part I
God's first Bible was the Witness of the Stars, His second is the Bible in Stone which records the same prophecies in the Great Pyramid; thirdly He published this Revelation in the more portable form of paper and ink. Three signifies completion, but in each Bible version the fullness of the revelation, thus the realization of redemption, was sealed to the end-time.
Adjacent to and much older than the Great Pyramid is the Sphinx, an immense sculpture with the head of a woman and the body of a lion, it is a type of the Seven Seals, which are the key that unlocks the mystery of God's written Word as the Sphinx is the key that shows us how to read the Gospel in the Stars. Both Bibles commence redemption's story with Virgo, the virgin woman through whom our Kinsman Redeemer came into this world, and both end with Leo, the Lion who claimed the Book of Redemption, loosed its Seals and introduced Christ to His end-time Bride through the Prophet-Messenger to the Seventh Church Age (Matthew 25:6). On the Sphinx the Virgin faces due east, whence Christ will return to raise and glorify her together with the New Testament saints for the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the Sky. When Leo reunites with Virgo in the Zodiac, we will rise. Hallelujah, we will rise!
"On that bright and cloudless morning when the dead in Christ shall rise
And the glory of His resurrection share;
When His chosen ones shall gather to their home beyond the skies,
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there. . . "
The name "Sphinx" derived from the Greek 'sphíngo,' meaning "to draw tight." From the foundation of the world it sealed the full import of the stellar Bible as the Seven Seals bound the Revelation of Jesus Christ unto the time of the end. And although Caliph Ali Mamoun broke into the Great Pyramid in AD825, enabling Christians in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to study its mathematical, astronomical and prophetical factsmysteries sealed before the Great Flood by its builder, Enochwe were not able to accurately 'read' the Stone Bible until it was capped by the revelation of the Seven Thunders, which are the mysteries that bound God's third Bible. Isaiah 19:19-20 says it "will be for a sign and for a witness to the Lord of Hosts . . . in the Day of the Lord," for it foretells the history of mankind from Earth to Glory.
As God's three Bibles were all "shut up and sealed to the time of the end," the "end-time" commenced with the opening of the Seven Seals as we studied in the previous two Newsletters (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 5:7-9; 10:4; 1:3; 22:10). That took place in March, 1963, and "The Revelation of the Seven Seals" is available here.
In the tenth year of King Zedekiah, which was about 588BC, Nebuchadnezzar besieged Jerusalem. The overthrow of the kingdom was prophesied and the epoch of the "desolations" certain to all who were not blinded. In fact it was a time like the overthrow of our apostate (once) Christian civilization today. On account of his prophecy of inevitable ruin, Jeremiah was held a prisoner in the court occupied by the guard, where his friends might visit him. He received a divine revelation, which announced that the field of his uncle Shallum of Anathoth in Benjamin would be offered to him to purchase as his kinsman redeemer. Sure enough, Shallum's son Hanameel offered him the land. Recognizing the hand of the Lord Jeremiah carefully observed all the legal formalities and purchased the field to certify the Judeans their future return from Babylon.
God promised more than the restoration of "houses and fields and vineyards," He spoke of Messiah's second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel and a future restoration in Daniel's Seventieth Week more universal than that from Babylon (Jeremiah 16:15). "I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in My anger, and in My fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again to this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely: and they will be My people, and I will be their God: I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may reverence Me forever, for the good of them and their children after them: and I will make an everlasting Covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put My fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from Me. Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with My whole heart and with My whole soul" (Jeremiah 32:39-41).
Jeremiah was a type of Israel's rejected Messiah, Jesus Christ, God's "earthen vessel" in which "this evidence of purchase was placedboth that which was sealed, and that which was open, until the day of redemption" (Ephesians 4:30), or "until the day that the Book of Redemption has been revealed, and the Redeemer comes to claim His possession" (William Branham, The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 78:4). "That which was open," types the written Word of God's three Bibles, while "that which was sealed" is the original containing an abstract of all occupiers of the land from its conquest and allotment in the days of Joshua and the time of the Jubilee. It types the Seven Thunders which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals that have bound the mysteries of God's three Bibles until 1963.
When Christ loosed the unwritten Seventh Seal (Revelation 8:1) it revealed the spoken Word of the previous Six Seals. Redemption was over, Christ was no longer Mediator, He was King of Kings and Judge. Revelation 10 declared His second or 'parousia' Coming in W_O_R_D form with the Book of Redemption open in His hand. Then He set His right foot in judgment upon Papal Rome, the beast from the Sea, and His left foot in judgment upon the United States of America, the image of Imperial Rome, and Seven Thunders revealed their mystery through the prophet of Revelation 10:7, to call His end-time Bride out of Babylon to be filled with the Spirit "in the unity of the faith" for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.
As we have explained in the past, John represents Christ's end-time Bride throughout the Book of Revelation, because the Book was sealed from the foundation of the world until Christ revealed it to His angel, William Branham (Revelation 1:1; 10:4-7). So wherever John speaks of himself he is speaking as each and every member of Christ's end-time Bride because the Book was sealed until the time of the end, which is our day, so it is revealed to us alone.
Revelation 6:1-2, "As . . . . your name here . . . . watched, the Lamb opened one of the Seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, Come! And I saw a white horse, and its rider had a bow; and a crown was given to him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer".
Symbolically, man severed from God and resting on his physical or intellectual strength or material resources, is beastly and brutish. He is only manly when Godly, for man was made in the image of God. So when envying the prosperous wicked, Asaph describes himself "as a beast before God" (Psalm 73:22). "Despite his pomp, without Spiritual revelation man is like the beasts that perish" (Psalm 49:12). "Those who walk after the flesh in the lust of defiling passion . . . are like brute beasts that are naturally born to be caught and killed" (II Peter 2:10, 12).
The four beasts arising from the multitudes surrounding the Mediterranean or "great" sea represent the four successive Gentile world empires "whereupon the four winds [war and strife] strove," and whose evil attributes are cumulative such that Rome, the "beast" of Revelation 11, 13 to 17, 19 and 20, is a combination of all their sensual, lawless, God-opposing features. The Roman Empire that first persecuted Christians at the instigation of Israel and the self-styled Edomite Jews will finally persecute and martyr the 144,000 elect Israelites.
The kingdom of Messiah supplanting utterly the former will be eternal and worldwide (Daniel 2:35, 44). The four cherubim of Revelation 4 and 5 are not "beasts" as the KJV identifies them, but "living creatures" (Gk. 'Zoon'), God's Throne guards, who represent Christ's Bride grafted into the Root of the cultivated olive tree and tamed to the Gospel. The word "beast" (Gk. 'therion'), signifies a wild beast; metaphorically, a brutal, bestial man, like Paul's opponents at Ephesus, savage, ferocious and untamed to the obedience of Christ (Romans 8:7; I Corinthians 15:32). The "harlot" Roman Church is seated on the beast. She is controlling the last or fourth empire. With the world church system under her Rome will be controlling, and her once Protestant image will be obedient to Rome because Rome controls the gold of the world.
The First Seal opened by the living creature with the face of a Lion was effective from Pentecost and during the Ephesian, Smyrnean and Pergamean Church Ages (AD53 AD606). It represents the elect who were Spiritually redeemed through the revelation of the Messages to those dispensations, which reproduced the nature of the living creature who called "Come," when the Lamb opened the First Seal. In the Old Testament the Lion adorned the standard God lifted up against the enemy from the East and represented the tribe of Judah aided by Issachar and Zebulon. The Light of the Gospel came out of the East and has shone even to the West (Matthew 24:27). Under the Gentile dispensation the world power is Rome, and as Rome will rule to the consummation one need have no doubt that the Roman church will rule Lucifer's totalitarian one world government. Thereafter the pope and his followers from all denominations and no denomination will be cast into a lake of Fire (Romans 9:27; Revelation 17:1 19:20). The horses of the heroes of Roman triumphs were white, and the rider of this white horse is the antichrist spirit. He had a bow but no arrows. Like a firearm, the bow is effective at a distance, but without arrows Satan was all chutzpah, a bluff, seeking spiritual power by usurping the Leadership of the Holy Spirit to establish a clerical hierarchy over the laity in imitation of Israelitish Temple worship. Jesus called this "the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I hate." He had no crown at the start of his ride, but he moved his earthly headquarters from Pergamos to Rome and in the third or Pergamean Church Age "a [triple] crown was given to him" following the organization of the Roman Catholic church at the First Nicaea Council of AD325. There "the deeds of the nicolaitanes" were enshrined as "the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes" and with church and state combined "he went forth conquering, and to conquer" (Revelation 2:6, 9, 13, 15).
Brother Branham said, "Here's the plan of it: the first thing happens, there is an announcement in the heavens first. [A thunder and the voice of the living creature saying, "Come"]! What happened? A Seal is opened. What is that? A mystery is unfolded. See? And when a mystery unfolds, then a trumpet sounds. It declares a [natural] war [in judgment upon the Israelites for rejecting the Message of the angel, which is the mystery of redemption to that Age]. Or a plague falls, and a Church Age opened. See? What is the war part? The angel of the Church catches the mystery of God, not fully yet revealed, but when he does, he catches this mystery of God, and then he goes forth to the people (after the mystery has been given to him), goes forth to the people. What does he do out there? He begins to proclaim that message, and what does it start? A war, a spiritual war."
"And then God takes His messenger with the elect of that Age, and lays them away asleep, and then He drops a plague upon them who rejected it: a temporary judgment [or Vial]. And then, after that is over, then he goes on, and they denominate, and bring in denominations, and start off with that man's work like of Wesley and all the rest of them, and then it gets all in a scrapple again; and then another mystery comes forth. Then what happens? Another messenger arrives on earth for a Church Age. See?"
"Then when he arrives, the [Gospel] Trumpet sounds. He declares war. See? And then what happens? Finally then he's caught away. And then when he's laid away, then plague [or a Vial] falls destroys them. Spiritual death hits the church and she's gone, that group. Then He goes on to another one."
"Oh, it's a great plan until it comes to that last angel. Now, he has no certain mystery, but he gathers up all that's been lost in them other Ages, all the truths that wasn't truly revealed yet (See?), as the revelation comes. Then he reveals those things in his day. If you want to read it, there it is: Revelation 10:1 to about 4. You'll get it. All right. See?"
". . . while all them scruples of denominations arguing their difference about their creed, God promised that He would send us a true prophet of the true Word with a Message to return to the original Word of God and the faith of the fathers to bring down the power of the Holy Ghost amongst the people, with a power that will raise her above these things and take her in [the rapture] at the same time. Yes, sir.
"Same Word be vindicated of Jesus Christ that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. "Lo, I am with you always, even to the consummation. And the works that I do shall you do also. I'll be right with you. A little while and they won't see Me no more, 'cause they'll organize themselves and scatter out, but ye'll see Me, for I will be with you. I'll even be in you unto the consummation". . . Who is that white horse rider? You're not blind. You see who it is. It's that antichrist and that deceitful spirit that's gone now and crept in . . ."
"See, God just keeps repeating it. He showed there's a man going forth with a white horse and with his bow and no arrow. He's a bluff. He has no power. You say, "The power of the church . . ." Where's it at? What do they do? They say, "We're the original church." The original church cast out devils, healed the sick, and raised the dead, saw visions and everything else. Where is it now? See? He's a bluff: bow with no arrow. That's right."
"But you see, when Christ come, a Sword went forth from His mouth like a lightning flash. It went forth and consumed His enemies and cast away the Devil. It cut away everything else and He come, His vesture dipped in Blood and on His thigh was written "The Word of God." Amen. Here He come with His army, coming from heaven.
"That white horse rider has been in the land all the time. He will change from antichrist. He does that and becomes to a false prophet [the pope]. See, he first started an antichrist, the spirit; then he become a false prophet. Then later, when the devil is cast out, he's incarnate then with the Devil. Three stages: the first he's a devil to begin with, a spirit of the devil; then he becomes a false prophet, teacher of a false doctrine; next thing he comes as the very devil himself incarnate. See? There he is."
"And at the same time that this Devil falls out of heaven and becomes incarnate in a man, the Holy Spirit goes up and comes down incarnate Man. Amen. Oh, my. What a time. . . There it is, revealed right there. Here he rides right down through the Age and comes right out here and displays himself right down here just as perfect as he can be. See? That's him. Now, we're not deceived on that. Now, you got your eyes opened. Stay away from that kind of stuff. Love the Lord with all your heart, and stay right with Him. Yes, sir. Come out of Babylon" (ibid. p. 126:4 127:2; 175:2 176:4).
Paul explains in II Thessalonians 2:1-12, "Although religious fanaticism will abound concerning the Coming of our Lord, let no one in any way deceive you: for the day of the Lord will be preceded by worldwide apostasy, then that man of sin will be revealed, the son of perdition; the Adversary who opposes and rises up against every so-called God or object of worship, so that he seats himself in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God [remitting sins]."
The pope of Rome is Judas' apostolic successor as "the son of perdition," whose blasphemous claims include:
Gregory IX (1227 1242) stated, "Wherefore, if those things that I do be said to be done not of man, but of God; what can you make me but God?"
Boniface VIII decreed in 1303, "Temporal authority [of kings] must be subject to spiritual power [of the pope]".
Pope John XXII (1316 1328) stated, "To believe that our Lord God the Pope has not the power to decree as he is decreed, is to be deemed heretical" (The Gloss of Extravagantes of Pope John XXII, Cum. Inter, title 14, chapter 4, "Ad Callem Sexti Decretalium," Column 140, Paris, 1685. (In an Antwerp edition of the Extravagantes, the words, "Dominum Deum Nostrum Papam" (i.e. "Our Lord God the Pope") can be found in column 153).
Pius IV (1566 1572) stated, "He that reigneth on high made him [the pope] alone prince over all people and all kingdoms, to pluck up, destroy, scatter, consume, plant and build" (Bull published against Queen Elizabeth I).
Pius V said, "The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth" (Barclay, Chapter XXVII, p. 218, 'Cities Petrus Bertanous').
Leo XIII asserted, "There is no allegiance to Christ without submission to the Pope" (Michael Malone, Apostolic Digest, Book 4: "The Book of Christians," Chapter 4). And,
"We hold upon this earth the place of God almighty" (Encyclical Letter, June 20, 1894). And,
"Remember and understand well that where Peter is, there is the Church; that those who refuse to associate in communion with the Chair of Peter belong to Antichrist, not to Christ. He who would separate himself from the Roman Pontiff has no further bond with Christ" (Satis Cognitum, quoted in "Acts of Leo XIII: Supreme Pontiff," Rome: Vatican Press, 1896).
In 1662 when "Peter's chair" was being cleaned in order to set it up in some conspicuous place of the Vatican, the twelve labours of Hercules appeared on it (Bower's History of the Popes, Vol. i. p. 7), it had been borrowed from the Pagans and so it had to be laid aside. The next chair appears to have been purloined from Muslims; for when the French soldiers under General Bonaparte took possession of Rome in 1795, they found on the back of it, in Arabic, this well-known sentence of the Koran, "There is no God but God, and Mahomet is His Prophet" (Lady Morgan's Italy, Vol. iii. p. 81; Alexander Hislop, The Two Babylons).
Pius X stated, "The Pope is not only the representative of Jesus Christ, but he is Jesus Christ Himself, hidden under the veil of the flesh. Does the Pope speak? It is Jesus Christ who speaks. Does the Pope accord a favour or pronounce an anathema? It is Jesus Christ who pronounces the anathema or accords the favour. So, when the Pope speaks we have no business to examine. We have only to obey" (Catholic National, July 1895).
"The Pope is the spiritual father of all Christians . . . The Pope is the Shepherd and Teacher of all Christians" (A Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, Revised edition, 1985).
Here are but some of the papal titles which confirm his identity as "the" antichrist throughout modern history:
"Most divine of all Heads." "Holy Father of Fathers." Pontiff Supreme Over Prelates." "Overseer of the Christian Religion." "Pastor of Pastors." "Christ by Unction." "Abraham by Patriachate." "Melchisedec in Order." "Moses in Authority." "Samuel in the Judicial Office." "High Priest, Supreme Bishop." "Heir to the Apostles; Peter in Power." "Key-bearer of the Kingdom of Heaven." "Pontiff Appointed with Plenitude of Power." "Vicar of Christ." "Vicar of the Son of God." "Sovereign Priest." "Head of all the Holy Churches." "Chief of the Universal Church." "Bishop of Bishops." "Ruler of the House of the Lord." "Apostolic Lord and Father of Fathers." "Chief Pastor and Teacher." "Physician of Souls." "Rock against which the proud gates of hell prevail not." "Infallible Pope." "Head of All the Holy Priests of God".
In speaking of the identification of antichrist who will become "the beast," Jesus said, "This calls for [Spiritual] wisdom. Let he who has understanding count the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, his number is 666" (Revelation 13:18). We "count the number of the beast" by adding the Roman numerals that constitute the papal title, VICARIVS FILII DEI: "vicardeputy or substitute for Christ" or substitute for the Holy Spirit. Thus: 5 + 1 + 100 + 1 + 5 + 1 + 50 + 1 + 1 + 500 + 1 = 666.
[The seven heads of Rome mentioned in Revelation 17 were seven emperors who deified themselves, "And the beast that was, and is not, (the pope "is," and when he dies he "is not," but when his replacement is elected he "is"), even he is the eighth [the Devil-incarnate beast], and is of the seven [in that he makes himself God (II Thessalonians 2:4)], and goes into perdition. And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength to the beast" to establish Lucifer's totalitarian one world government (Revelation 17:11-13).
Many are claiming that the mark of the beast will be a micro-chip, but Jesus said it will be identified with one man in whom Satan will rule Rome's one world government to the consummation (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17). Christ's Adversary demands obeisance, the absolute submission of your mind to his will: his mark is not a micro-chip but absolute dominion of your will through mind control by propaganda, fanatical religion, fear and superstition, with physical violence and death to recalcitrants. Here is a secular illustration of mind control enforced global today.
Revelation 13:4, "And the whole world will [vicariously] worship the dragon [Satan] who gives his authority to the beast [of Rome in the person of a devil-incarnate pope]: and will worship the beast, saying, Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him"? Because after the sinking of Los Angeles, the "hot stage" of World War III, the collapse of the US dollar and world economy, and Russia's successful invasion of mainland USA, the pope will restore peace under one world government, repatriate Russia's occupying armies, and in covenant with the self-styled Jewish banksters refinance the US dollar and restore the world economy. Revelation 17:1-6 portrays Papal Rome seated on or controlling the fourth world empire, and Revelation 18:1-20 like Daniel 2:40-45, describes Rome's wealth, her hubris, and her utter destruction.
Revelation 13:5-8, "And the beast [the "little horn" of Daniel 7:20] was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and permitted to control the Earth for forty-two months [the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week], throughout which he blasphemed God's Name [changing Lord Jesus Christ to three Titles], and His abode, and the saints in heaven resurrected and translated [to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb]. And he was permitted to make war with 144,000 elect Israelites and their two Hebrew prophets, and to kill them all: and authority was given him over every tribe, and tongue, and nation. And all inhabitants of Earth whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world will worship him".
The mark of the beast is the mark of Cain; it is not a microchip but carnal wisdom, reasoning against the faith or revealed Word of God, which is vicarious worship of Satan. Brother Branham said, "Anything contrary to the precepts of God, the Word of God, is not God. What is it? What is sin? Righteousness perverted. What is death? Life perverted. What is the kingdom of Satan? Anything that's setting something to take the place of the Word, anything, any teaching. One word, just one word. You might believe every bit. Eve believed every bit of it to that one Word. That one Word's all she needed to disbelieve. That one Word is all you need to disbelieve" (Oneness, p. 11:55)].
II Thessalonians 2:2-12, "Do you not recollect how I told you these things when I was with you? So now you know he is restrained from revealing himself until the lawlessness of apostasy takes hold of the world [after the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and the translation of the Bride (Revelation 6:12-17; 12:7-10)], for the mystery of lawlessness is already at work [deceiving the non-elect]: only the presence of the Holy Spirit in the Bride is restraining and will continue to impede it until He is taken out of the way [in the first resurrection]. Then that Wicked one will be unveiled [made known or revealed Gk. 'apokalupto'], whom the Lord Jesus will consume with the Spirit of His Word (Revelation 11:5; 19:15), and shall destroy [Gk. 'katargeo' or render ineffectual his influence on the 144,000 and non-elect martyrs to-be] with the brightness [shining forth Gk. 'epiphanaea']: of His [Gk. 'parousia'] Coming.
(This is not speaking of the physical appearance of the glorified Jesus mistakenly anticipated by the denominations, but His revelation to "those who pierced Him," the 144,000 elect Israelites, and to "all [non-elect] kindreds [of Adam's race that have not taken the mark of the beast] and who will wail because of Him," when they recognize they have missed the rapture and must suffer martyrdom in order to retain their names on the Book of Life, and salvation).
"The ['parousia'] coming of the lawless man [or Devil-incarnate pope] by the activity of Satan will be with all power and with lying signs and wonders, [uniting the world's religions to halt World War III (Revelation 13:3, 14), restoring peace and establishing totalitarian one world government]. The deceivableness of unrighteousness in carnal men who aspire to one world government, one world religion, climate change, environmental tax, etc., because they did not receive the love of the Truth that they might be saved [and Christ the Word is the Truth. They love the historical Jesus, but He does not love them because they hate Christ the Word, and prefer a creed]. For this cause God shall send them strong delusion, to make them believe the lie[the same lie Satan told Eve, that God loves you dearly, He loves the Muslims, Anglicans, JWs, and Catholics so dearly, "You won't surely die"]; so that all who have not believed the Truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness may be damned".
Brother Branham explains the heavenly temple portrayed in the Book of Revelation as the scene of a play showing us the way back to Eden's sinless perfection. We learn from the first three verses that this is a Book of prophecy, so we must not lean to our own literal understandings but heed what God has spoken through His prophet: "John was on the Isle of Patmos because he tried to put the Word of God into a book form and was exiled there by the Roman government, and was on the island in the day of the Lord, and he heard behind him a Voice of many waters [the multitude of the saints] and turned to look, and he saw seven golden candlesticks. And there stood the Son of God in between them."
(He is describing John on the Isle of Patmos in the flesh, but caught up in the Spirit into the day of the Lord, which is yet future. John represents you as a member of Christ's Capstone Bride on earth in man's day in the flesh, but caught up in the Spirit into the day of the Lord, receiving the same revelation of Brother Branham's ministry through the Spoken Word audio and transcripts as John received when he saw and heard him in the visions. John looks back to man's day before Israel's Seventh Trumpet signalled the end of the Gentile dispensation and sees Christ in the midst of the seven golden lampstands, which represent the Bride drawn from all Seven Church Ages. His robe is no longer girt about the waist as Priest and Mediator, but about the breast as Judge).
"Now, the mystery of the Book are revealed when the Seals are broken. And when the Seals completely are broken, the time of redemption is over, because the Lamb left the intercession post to walk out to take His claims. He was a Mediator between that, but when the real revelation happens on the Seals as they begin to break, the Lamb is coming forth from the sanctuary. It's according to the Word. We read it last night. He come out of the midst [of the seven golden lampstands in the Holy Place to the Throne in the Holy of Holies] and took the Book. So He's no more Mediator, because even they called Him a Lion, and that's the King, and He's not a Mediator then."
"Although the actors of these Seals begin at the first Church Age. . . Now, remember, so we'll get the background of it thoroughly if we can, or as thoroughly as possible. The actors. . . I'll place it like that, because an actor is a man who changes masks. See?"
"And in this act tonight, we're going to see that it's Satan changing his mask. And all actors . . . Christ, acting the part as He did when He become from a Spirit to man, He only put on an actor's garment, human flesh, and came down in the form of a man in order to be a Kinsman Redeemer" (ibid. p. 124:3 125:1).
"Notice. Now, the Holy Spirit and the revelation and Christ is . . . The Holy Spirit is Christ in another form. That's right. Notice, it is a Lamb that opened the Book, and the Lamb is Christ; and Christ is not seen any more from then, but He is seen in the Book of Revelations the nineteenth chapter, coming on a white horse:
"And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse [not on the earth; in heaven. See?]; and He that set on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness does He judge and make war. His eyes were flames of fire, and on His head was many crowns. [Look at the diadem]; and He had a Name written, that no man knowed, but He Himself".
". . . nobody knows it. Did you ever know that the Name of Jehovah is not correct? Anyone knows. Dr. Vayle, you know that's true. The translators could never translate it. Its spelled J-v-h-u. It isn't Jehovah. They couldn't touch it. They don't know what it is. Called it Jehovah, but it wasn't His Name. Look. Every time a victory's won or something goes on, a name is changed."
"Look at the days of Abraham. He was first Abram, and never could have that baby until his name was changed to Abraham. And Sarai, S-a-r-a-i could not have nothing but a dead womb until her name was changed to S-a-r-a-h."
"Jacob means "supplanter, deceiver," and that's what he did. He put sheepskin on hisself and deceived his prophet father to take the birthright. He put poplar sticks in the water, speckled them, and scared the cattle when they was pregnated with their young, to make speckled cattle and sheep. Nothing but a deceiver, but one night he caught ahold of something real. And he knowed it was real, and he stayed with it and held on until he overcome, and his name was changed and called Israel meaning "a prince with power before God." Is that right? Every overcomer. . ."
Simon was a fisherman; but when his faith caught and knowed that was Jesus, when He told him He was the Messiah and told him who his name was and what his father's name was, he was overcome and changed from Simon to Peter."
Saul, good name, Saul was a king one time in Israel, but Saul didn't fit an apostle. Might be all right for a king, but not an apostle. So Jesus changed his name from what? From Saul to Paul. Look at the sons of thunder and on down.
"And Jesus, His Name on earth was Redeemer, Jesus. When He was on earth, He was the Redeemer; that's true. But when He conquered death and hell, and overcome them, and ascended on high, He received a new Name. That's the reason they holler the way they do and don't get nothing; it'll be revealed in the thunders. See?"
"Notice, the mystery. He's coming, riding. . . There's got to be something to change this Church, you know that. There's got to be something. Notice. "No man knowed but Himself." Now, notice, "no man knowed but Hisself".
"And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His Name was called The Word of God. [Oh, notice]. And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He tread the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He had on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS".
"There comes the Messiah. There He is, not this fellow on this horse back here. Watch the different. Here He stands with the Book in His hand here [in Revelation 5:7]. The redemptive work is just [beginning] . . . He hasn't took His place [on the white horse of Revelation nineteen] yet."
"So it was not the Christ that went forth, the Holy Spirit. Not disagreeing with them great men, no, sir, I don't do it. I wouldn't want to do that, but this is what my revelation of it is. See, if you got something different, well, that's all right, but it ain't all right with me. See, I believe it this way; you know what. See?"
"And notice, Christ is not seen any more (See?) from the time there [i.e. Revelation 6:1]. But He is on a white horse; so if this guy is riding a white horse, he's only an impersonator of Christ. See? Get that? Notice, the rider on the white horse don't have any name. He might use two or three titles, but he hasn't got any name. But Christ has a Name. What is it? The Word of God. That's what it is. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God". And the Word is made flesh. See?
"The rider has no name, but Christ is called the Word of God. That's what He is. He's called that. Now, He's got a Name that no man knows, but He's called the Word of God. This guy isn't called nothing (See?), but he's on a white horse."
"The rider has no arrows for his bow. Did you notice? He had a bow, but there's nothing said about having any arrows; so he must be a bluffer. That's right. Maybe he's got a lot of thunder and no lightning, but you find out Christ had both lightning and thunder; for out of His mouth goes a sharp two-edged Sword, and He smites the nations. And this guy can't smite nothing (See?), but he's playing the part of a hypocrite. He's going forth riding on a white horse, going out to conquer."
"Christ has a sharp Sword, and watch. It comes from His mouththe living Word. That's the Word of God revealed to His servants, like He said to Moses: "Go, stand there and hold that stick out yonder, call for flies," and there was flies. Sure. Whatever He said, He done it, and it come to pass. His living Word. . . God and His Word is the self same Person. God is the Word.
"Who is this mysterious rider of the first Church Age then? Who is he? Let's think of it. Who is this mysterious rider that starts forth in the first Church Age and rides plumb on out into eternity, goes to the end ["to perdition" (Revelation 17:8, 11)] (ibid. p. 157:1 159:7)? nl638.htm
