Bible Believers' Newsletter 730
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I believe this coming Thursday, April 12 will be our Brother, Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani's thirty-fifth birthday. This will be the third birthday he has celebrated in prison with the possible sentence of death because his parents were Muslims and he converted to Christianity. Perhaps Allah does not believe in free moral agency, the gift with which the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob endowed all of His creatures, including Lucifer. Please remember Brother Nadarkhani in your prayers, and send him a greeting or sign a petition here, here, and here.
This week we continue our study on the Sixth Trumpet.
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott
Man Whose WMD Lies led to Iraq War Confesses All
April 01, 2012 A man whose lies helped to make the case for invading Iraqstarting a nine-year war costing [many - Ed] more than 100,000 lives and hundreds of billions of poundswill come clean in his first British television interview tomorrow. "Curveball," the Iraqi defector, who fabricated claims about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, smiles as he confirms how he made the whole thing up. It was a confidence trick that changed the course of history, with Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi's lies used to justify the Iraq war. He tries to defend his actions: "My main purpose was to topple the tyrant in Iraq because the longer this dictator remains in power, the more the Iraqi people will suffer from this regime's oppression."
The chemical engineer claimed to have overseen the building of a mobile biological laboratory when he sought political asylum in Germany in 1999. His lies were presented as "facts and conclusions based on solid intelligence" by Colin Powell, US Secretary of State, when making the case for war at the UN Security Council in February 2003.
But Mr. Janabi, speaking in a two-part series, Modern Spies, starting tomorrow on BBC2, says none of it was true. When it is put to him "we went to war in Iraq on a lie. And that lie was your lie", he simply replies: "Yes." US officials "sexed up" Mr. Janabi's drawings of mobile biological weapons labs to make them more presentable, admits Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, General Powell's former chief of staff. "I brought the White House team in to do the graphics," he says, adding how "intelligence was being worked to fit around the policy". . . Full story: informationclearinghouse.info
Comment: This quisling with the blood of millions on his hands is a free man while the criminal International Criminal Court at the Hague, NATO, US and UN hound honourable men like Mr. Milosevic to death, destroy Saddam Hussein's Iraq, the most modern state in the Middle East, and sadistically murder Col. Gaddafi, undoubtedly one of the greatest men of our age, and destroy the nation state he built.
Depleted Uranium–'Dirty Bomb'–Now in America
March 26, 2012 Our Government, now under the control of Jews, has lied to the public for years about all aspects of radioactive isotopesmore recently regarding DU. There is no 'safe' dosage rate below which dangers disappear. "No threshold-dose," says John Gofman, a former Associate Director of Livermore National Laboratory, one of the scientists who worked on the atomic bomb and co-discoverer of uranium-233. Gofman concludes, "Serious, lethal effects from minimal radiation doses are not 'hypothetical,' or 'just theoretical,' or 'imaginary.' They are real" . . .
There has been even MORE tons of this deadly poison spread over Afghanistan by an irresponsible Government gone mad! These deadly micro-particles are often carried up into the atmosphere and released with rain hundreds of miles away. The Jews themselves have poured over 75 tons of this radioactive death on the tiny 138 Square Mile Prison we know as Gaza. That's enough to kill 50 million people. Gaza has 1.5 million people. . . So now just ignore these truthsgrab a cold Budtake a purple pillturn on the TalmudVision to your favorite Jew-created violence, sexual reverie and depravity, or NFL Goyim Games, and repeat this little mantra over and over till it makes things right again: "Our government would never lie to usour government would never lie to usour government would never lie to us" . . .

Comment: Speaking of the soon-coming nuclear attack on the United States Brother Branham said, "The church will be changed and caught up to meet Jesus in the air. And woe unto this bunch then. They'll gnaw their tongues for pain, when the atomic sweeps into the nation, burns eyes out, and runs like water down, and tongues are gnawed for pain, and screaming, just one bomb bursting after another. You'll remember how much it was mental telepathy, how much it was a bunch of holy-rollers or fanatics. Remember, God knows what He's a doing. Yes, sir" (Abraham and His Seed after Him, #61-0423).
How Murdoch caused the Demise of Whitlam and Rudd
April 1, 2012 It was Rupert Murdoch's biggest personal scoop as a journalist—a front-page splash in The Australian on February 25, 1976, revealing that the Labor leader Gough Whitlam had secretly sought an election campaign donation from Saddam Hussein's Iraqi Ba'ath Party. What was called the Iraqi Money affair was a political sensation that nearly cost [Prime Minister] Whitlam the Labor leadership in circumstances of absolute political humiliation. Yet just how Murdoch got the story has long remained a mystery.
"Gough's gone; Gough's gone a million," said Bob Hawke, then Australian Labor Party President. . . If there were no funds to be presented to Whitlam and Combe, then this event was a 'sting' a set up, to put Whitlam in an extremely precarious situation. . . The big question is; why would Rupert Murdoch want to handle this story personally?
Rupert Murdoch's headline of 'Whitlam tells Iraqis Hawke won't be leader' should be read as; 'Zionists tell Whitlam Hawke will be leader', and until that happened, the ALP would not win any federal election. In other words . . . Rupert Murdoch set the ALP'S POLITICAL AGENDA and is continuing to do so! . . .
In other words, it was Reuben F. Scarf who would have told Whitlam not to worry about the Jewish donations as we Arabs have the petro-dollars and are also very wealthy, and Whitlam fell for it . . .
Rupert Murdoch and the 'Australian-Jewish' community has gained the position they desired. Kevin Rudd, who caused the Australian vote at the UN [concerning a war crimes investigation of Israel's military assault on Gaza last year] to be repositioned, and then expelled an Israeli diplomat over the assassination of a Hamas leader in Dubai has been removed to the back benches, and will never again threaten the position of Israel. To Zionists, nothing else matters.

Comment: Whitlam was only the first, followed by Simon Crean and finally Rudd which brings us into the modern era of ALP politics. This demonstrates not only the control on the political parties, but the application of that control, and from what Alan Reid wrote you can also comprehend that the Jews would ensure they were the only people with that control.
Every indication is that PM Gillard must go, and as PM Whitlam was replaced by Malcolm Fraser and Bob Hawke I believe Bob Carr who is likewise of "the same ethnic, religious, corporate and military interests that funded World Wars I and II and run the world today" to quote Congressman Ron Paul, will replace her. This was the general plan of 2003 but Mr. Carr was not prepared to give up his 'high' office as Premier of New South Wales, for a lower office at that time.
The Sixth Trumpet Part II
This map depicts the Roman Empire at its greatest extent (c. AD6 c. 100) shortly after John wrote the Book of Revelation signified in Old Testament symbols following a series of visions he received during his imprisonment on the Island of Patmos from AD95-96. All of the New Testament Books were written and read in the church assemblies some years before John's death. Providence prolonged his life so that he might give Scripture its final attestation. In AD100 Asiatic bishops visited John at Ephesus with copies of the Gospels, Matthew, Mark, and Luke, and requested his apostolic judgment concerning them; John pronounced them genuine, authentic, and inspired, and at their request added his gospel to complete the fourfold aspect of Christ. And what John wrote they attested; John 21:24, "This is the disciple who testifies of these things, and wrote these things: and we know his testimony is true." The Revelation of Jesus Christ is the seal of the whole Bible, the completion of the canon. Scripture is one organic whole, and these Books, though written over fifteen hundred years in their date of composition, are mutually connected. The end is the necessary sequence of the middle, and the middle the necessary sequence of the beginning. Genesis represents man in innocence and bliss, followed by man's fall through Satan's cunning, and man's consequent dooming to death and exclusion from paradise and Christ, the Tree of Life. Revelation represents in reverse order man first sinning and dying, then conquering sin and death through the Blood of the Lamb; the first Adam and Eve represented by the last Adam, Christ, and the Church His spotless overcoming Wife restored to paradise. As Genesis foretold the bruising of the Serpent's head by the woman's Seed, so Revelation declares the accomplishment of that prophecy.
This map clearly shows Imperial Rome rose up out of the (Mediterranean) sea according to Bible prophecy and conquered all nations around its coasts to establish her Empire. Building on this foundation Papal Rome established a global kingdom that knows no boundaries and in Lucifer's coming totalitarian one world government "all that dwell upon the earth whose names are not written in the Lamb's Book of Life from the foundation of the world will worship the Dragon [Satan] incarnate in the beast [Rome's pope] . . . or be killed" (Revelation 13).
The Eastward advance of Rome's empire was prevented by Parthia, which in the apostles' day extended from India to the Tigris, occupying areas now in Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan andfor brief periodsterritories in Pakistan, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel and Palestine. Rising from the ruins of the Persian Empire Parthia was the only power that Rome dreaded. The Parthians were Scythian Tartars of the Turanian race whose roots lie in Mongolia. An invasion from the East was something greatly feared by John's readers under the Imperial Roman Empire, as it has been in the twentieth century under Papal Rome. Until the Armistice it came from Parthia's remnant under the Turkish Ottoman Empire. Alexander the Great's Empire succeeded in part by Rome encompassed Greece, Syria, Palestine, Egypt and Libya, plus Turkey, Armenia, Syria, and what would become the Parthian Empire. Today's reviving Holy Roman Empire of the European Union is in league with Israel and the 'City of London' subduing elements of her eastern capital as per the first map, by debt, and Muslim lands of the former Parthian Empire like Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran and Syria by bombs, guns and 'depleted' uranium at the hands of her US image and NATO since the end of the Church Ages.
Revelation 9:13-21 is not the only Scripture that portrays demonic beings leading a great army to battle in our era. Right now under the Sixth Trumpet and Fourth Seal and between the Sixth and Seventh Vials of Revelation 16:13-14, the demonic spirits that possess the False Prophet are deceiving the leaders of the world to gather in the Valley of Megiddo for the Battle of Armageddon. And because Papal Rome and the world church system have rejected the Holy Spirit these demonic beings are driving men insane, persuading them to 'preemptive war' in order to maintain peace.
Those in the faith will know "Christ has come as a thief" between the Sixth and Seventh Vials (Revelation 16:15; 10:1-4; Matthew 24:1-13; I Thessalonians 4:14-16). And as it was in the days of Noah, life continues as usual for almost no one is looking; those who are are looking for the wrong Coming. Rather than a time of peace, He comes as "the kings of the earth and of the whole world are being gathered together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon".
When Daniel prophesied the revival of the Papal Roman Empire he spoke of the reunion of the ten kingdoms into which Imperial Rome had divided. Daniel 7:23-26, "The fourth beast will be the fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all other kingdoms [as it will be the brutal Holy Judaeo-Roman Church Empire], that will devour the whole earth [in Lucifer's NWO], and trample it down, and break it to pieces. For out of its ten horns ten kingdoms shall arise [the Alamani (Germany), Franks (France), Saxons (English), Visgoths (Spain), Burgundians (Switzerland), Lombards (Italy), Seuvi (Portuguese), and three (Germanic tribes, the Vandals, Ostrogoths and Heruli. These are the royal houses into which the Imperial Roman Empire divided after the fall of the last emperor Romulus Augustulus in AD476. These ten horns or powers are the Black Nobility and correspond to the ten toes symbolized in the image of Nebuchadnezzar's dream that will "give their power and strength to the beast" throughout the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Revelation 17:12-17)], and another shall rise after them [the pope]; he shall be diverse from the former kings, and shall put down three of them [the Vandals, Ostrogoths and Heruli for refusing Rome's trinity of gods and adhering to Arianism]. And the [pope] shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear down the saints of the Most High, and think to change the sacred seasons and the Law [forcing her trinity of gods"]: and they will be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time [that is, until the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week]. Then the judgment shall sit, and his dominion shall be taken away, to be consumed and destroyed for all time".
Daniel spoke of the revival of the "fourth kingdom" and its constituent parts as the ten toes of the feet of the image of Nebuchadnezzar's dream signifying "the times of the Gentiles. And whereas you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men [multiculturalism]: but will not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. And in the days of these kingdoms the God of heaven shall set up a kingdom which will never be destroyed" (Daniel 2:43-44).
We shall not have long to wait for the close of the Gentile dispensation as Daniel was speaking of the hour in which we live. In Revelation 17:12-18 Jesus spoke of these kingdoms which will reunite behind Rome once Satan is cast down to earth and incarnates the pope, and whereas Daniel foretold "they shall not cleave one to another," Jesus said that in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week "the ten horns which you saw on the beast will hate the whore, and will make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with [nuclear] fire" (Revelation 17:16; 18:8-20).
Late in the third century AD, Diocletian (Revelation 2:10) established the practice of dividing authority between four co-emperors (known as tetrarchs) in order to better secure the vast territory, and during the following decades the Empire was often divided along an East/West axis. Constantine built a new capital called Constantinople (now Istanbul) in the east of his Empire. After the death of Theodosius I in 395 it was divided for the last time. The crumbling Western Roman Empire ended in 476 when Romulus Augustus was forced to abdicate to the Germanic warlord Odoacer. The East-West Schism of 1054 formally divided the State church of the Roman Empire into Eastern (Greek) and Western (Latin) branches, which later became known as the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church, respectively. Relations between East and West had long been embittered by political and ecclesiastical differences and theological disputes. The Eastern Roman or Byzantine Empire ended in 1453 with the death of Constantine XI and the capture of Constantinople to Mehmed II, leader of the Ottoman Turks.
Revelation 16:12, "The sixth angel poured out his Vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings who are from the sun-rising might be prepared [to come from beyond the Euphrates as representatives of the barbarism of the remotest lands]. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [which look behind themselves as these unclean creatures do, yearning for the past "glories" of the first Nicaea Council and absolute power of the Holy Roman Empire. These unclean spirits are Fascism, Nazism and Communism that] come out of the mouth of the dragon, [Satan manifest in Rome, the enemy of Israel and Christ (Revelation 12:3-4)], and out of the mouth of the beast [a religious power "from the pit of the abyss" that calls itself "the church" but is the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth (Revelation 9:1; 13:1-4; 17:1-8)], and out of the mouth of the false prophet [or pope (Revelation 17:7-11)]. For they are the spirits of demons, working miracles, which go forth to the kings of the whole inhabited world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God the Almighty".
These demonic modern nightingales, the frogs, announce the new spring-time of mankind as we have witnessed in the George Soros/Rothschild/City of London Color Revolutions, Arab Spring, Al Qaeda, 9/11, 7/1. the Bali and other bombings, Port Arthur and numerous school and shopping mall shootings and Occupy movements coordinated by the CIA, MI6 and MOSSAD. The objective of the Dragon is contempt for man (Job 2:4); the objective of the beast is the deification of man (Genesis 3:5; II Thessalonians 2:3-10); while the objective of the false prophet is a bigoted brainwashing and training of man to obedience and obeisance, a combination of the preceding elements (Revelation 13:4, 13-18).
Brother Branham typed the drying up of the water of the great river Euphrates in the invasion and defeat of natural Babylon to the drying up of the Holy Spirit and defence of "mystery Babylon the great," the Judaeo-Roman mother of harlots and abominations of the earth manifest in the apostasy of Laodicea. "And in this great city, as they felt there was no way in the world for an army ever to invade . . . The great, high walls, and their modern equipment, and they were blocked off from the outside world. But little did they know that a wicked nation called the Medes and Persians, which now are the Hindus of India, how little did they know that many miles away was digging a riverbed to turn the Euphrates river, so that they could march under the walls. When they felt they were secured . . . then they went wading in sin. . . So when they closed those doors, they thought they were safe. But God looks down from the heavens. And sin is a reproach to any nation."
"I wonder tonight with all of our great equipment, and our atomic-controlled submarines, and our jet planes that fly many hundred miles per . . . minute, that can even pass the sound barrier . . . But never forget but what your sins will find you out" (Handwriting on the Wall, p. 3:21-24)!
So we have "the kings who are from the sun-rising" (Revelation 16:13) distinguished from "the kings of the earth" in general. Ezekiel 38 and 39 foretell an invasion of Israel in the last days from beyond the Euphrates led by their cousins from "the kingdom of the North," which will finally annihilate both Rome and her United States image (Revelation 18). Brother Branham called this history of enmity from the Garden of Eden to perdition "the trail of the Serpent".
The seven Seals, seven Trumpets and seven Vials (Revelation 6:12-17; 8:1, 5; 11:15; 16:17) all converge at the same pointthe earthquake of the Sixth Seal (Revelation 6:12) which takes place at the Seventh Trumpet (Revelation 11:19) and the Seventh Vial (Revelation 16:17-18). Whereas the Trumpets and Vials terminate at the consummation of life prior to the millennium, the Seventh Seal continues through the millennium, general resurrection, White Throne Judgment and final disposition of sin, terminating along with time at the eighth day which is eternity and the new heavens and new earth where Christ's elect will dwell in New Jerusalem and the saved of all Ages return to Edenic innocence and bliss around the circumference of Earth for evermore.
Revelation 10:1 11:13 is a parenthesis describing Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to His end-time Bride through the revelation of the Voice of the seventh angel, then to 144,000 elect Israelites through the revelation of the Message of Israel's two prophets. Thus Revelation 11:14-18 follows Revelation 9:21 as one reads so that the Sixth Trumpet and the effects of the Second Woe of World War II continue until the Seventh Trump of Revelation 11:15 at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal of Revelation 6:12 (announcing the Third Woe in the parenthesis of Revelation 12:1-12) and the outpouring of Brother Branham's Vial in Revelation 16:17. Earthquakes will sink Los Angeles, cleave the Mount of Olives and demolish the Dome of the Rock (Revelation 16:19; Isaiah 27:13), marking the end of the Gentile dispensation; after three days the sleeping New Testament saints will begin to rise, and "we who are alive and remain . . . will manifest that we are the Sons of God" (I Thessalonians 4:17; Romans 8:19).
Notice when the Laodicean Church Age ended "lightnings and thunderings and voices went forth from God's Throne in heaven." It was so noisy up there because the Blood no longer covered the Mercy Seat which was now a Judgment Seat occupied by an angry God and before His Throne were seven lamps of Fire which signify His sevenfold Spirit that anointed the seven Angels to declare the present Truth for their Age that would regenerate the saints predestinated to that part of the Body. All seven Church Ages of PART-Word being fulfilled they returned to God and in forty-nine years not one of the denominations has noticed the Spirit's absence. As the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals "till the time of the end" Christ was unable to fully redeem even one of the Church Age saints on Calvary for their faith was imperfect and contrary to the mind of God. Restricted to the partial revelation delivered by the angel to their Age they presumed by adding to and taking from the revealed Word of his Message then wrote their creeds and traditions making it of no effect (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 5:7; 10:4). The most noble of the Church Age saints was in disagreement with the Word which is God, so from Pentecost until the last elect predestinated to the Laodicean Church Age was baptized into the Body, Christ acted as go-between or Mediator between God and His elect; and honouring the Word for their hour He "winked at their ignorance" and baptized them into that part of the Body (Revelation 4:5).
Revelation 4 and 5 represent the dispensation change Brother Branham called "the Breach between the Church Ages and the Seals." It is the antitype of Exodus 19:16-19 and 20:1-22 when God brought Israel from grace to judgment under the Law of sin and death because today there is no mercy outside the Token. Redemption was over when the last saint predestinated to the PART-Word Body was born-again: Christ is no longer in the Office of Son of God and Mediator, and having fulfilled the office of Kinsman Redeemer for Adam's race it was time for Him to claim the Title Deed to redemption, which is the Book of Life, and change from the mediatorial office Son of God to the prophetic office Son of Man. As Son of Man He is King of Kings and Judge (John 5:26-27), and if you click on the image to enlarge it you will note that during the Church Ages the Body of PART-Word saints was separated from Christ, the Capstone and Head of the Body which is the FULLNESS of the Word.
Many Brothers and Sisters question: If Christ is not a Mediator, how can I be "saved"? The fact is everyone in Adam's race is born "saved" from his mother's womb. The Book of Life is the genealogy of the first Adam written in the foreknowledge of our omniscient God from the foundation of the world (Revelation 17:8). There He saw Jesus Christ, the last Adam, slain to redeem your sinful life by the vicarious death of His sinless Life on Calvary's cruel Cross. Not being an arbitrary god like Allah He allows you to freely choose to receive or decline His love as KINSMAN Redeemer. As a son or daughter of Adam, be you short and stout, tall and slender, black, brown, white, red or green you are "saved" regardless of your religion, if any, and will be granted into eternal Life by the elect at the White Throne Judgment so long as your name is in that Book (I Corinthians 6:2-3); once it is removed you are LOST.
The non-elect granted into eternal Life will include children who die before the age of accountability, Israelites martyred under the Fifth Seal for the faith of Moses and the prophets, all who have been good and kind to the Bride, and those martyred during the Great Tribulation for refusing to take the mark or serve the beast, and the "foolish Virgin" of all Ages.
I believe the salvation business is a Judaeo-Roman Catholic marketing ploy like infant baptism, christening, catechism and communion, and other extra-biblical strategies carried over into the (once) Protestant denominations. Christians are not "the saved" but the born-again saints"elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification by the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the Blood of Jesus Christ" (I Peter 1:2). Our names were written in the Lamb's Book of Life from the foundation of the world which is the genealogy of Jesus Christ and those born the second time by His Spirit (Revelation 13:8). As He overcame and conquered death and hell and cannot die again we are eternal in Him and our names can never be removed from that Book (Romans 8:28-39; II Corinthians 5:13-21; Hebrews 9:27).
When the Seventh Seal opened "there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour" (Revelation 8:1).
And when Christ descended with the little Book open in His hand "seven thunders uttered their voices [on Earth]" (Revelation 10:1-4). There was silence in heaven because Christ had descended to earth with the Shout of the Message, so the Word was on earth, "and those who were asleep in Jesus God brought with Him" (I Thessalonians 4:14; Jude 14). Or as Brother Branham said, "Jesus comes from heaven with ten thousands times ten thousands of His saints, and the Bible said that the heavens was empty for the space of a half hour. Where is this big fellow, God then? Uh-huh. See, He's in Christ. Sure" (Sardis Church Age, p. 348:96). There is no trinity of gods.
There is silence in Heaven because Christ's mediation is finished: the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form. We live in a period similar to the days of Israel's second temple. You will recall from Ezekiel 10 the Prophet saw the Shekinah forsake and depart the temple seven years before Nebuchadnezzar razed it in the twelfth year of the Captivity. The Ark, a type of Christ, was absent from the temples of Zerubbabel and Herod as the Holy Spirit has departed the denominations and is calling to the wise and foolish virgin, "Come out of her My people, lest you partake of her sins and receive of her plagues" (Revelation 18:4; Matthew 25:1-13). But in the vision of Revelation 11:19 Christ the Word is signified as the Ark indicating His second or parousia Coming and God's favour toward Israel. When the high priest entered the Holy of Holies on the Day of Atonement, instead of the Ark of the Covenant was a rock; unlike the Rock that followed the children of Israel, that rock was NOT the Shekinah. Like today's Gentile denominational ministers, Israel's high priest did not tell Israel's denominations of God's absence. After five hundred years when He returned unrecognized in the Temple of Messiah, Israel's high priest and all of the people lay on wicked hands and unjustly slew Him as a Pascal lamb.
The revelation of the Seven Seals capped the pyramid of Christ's Body, but in the absence of a mediator how can Christ's end-time Bride enter into the Capstone of the FULLNESS of the Word? Simply because by God's grace we now have the perfect interpretation of the Word in the revelation of the Seven Seals with Divine vindication which 144,000 elect Israelites will receive with the revelation of their Seven Trumpet mysteries. As Christ's end-time Bride and the 144,000 elect Israelites are predestinated to receive the FULLNESS of the Word we were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary and do not require mediation for ignorance. As Moses interceded for Israel when the nation had committed the unpardonable sin, following the apostasy of Laodicea Brother Branham stood in the gap to receive the revelation of the Seven Seals (Revelation 1:1), and although he has gone to his reward we live "in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel" which is finishing the mystery of God in the hungry hearts of His end-time Bride. "And the Voice which I . . . (insert your name) . . . heard from heaven spoke to me again, and said, Go and take the little Book which is open in the hand of the Angel [Christ] who stands upon the sea and upon the earth. And I went to the Angel, and said to Him, Give me the little Book. And He told me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make your belly bitter, but it shall be sweet as honey in your mouth. And I took the little Book out of the Angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. And He told me, You must prophesy again to many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings" (Revelation 10:7-11).
Matthew 24:14-28 describes the Gentile dispensation from the siege of Jerusalem under the First Seal during which "the Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations. [And] great tribulation" will come upon Israelites under the Fifth Seal and her first six Trumpets. Brother Branham called this an "amateur tribulation." As "all who live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution" every Age has seen God's true Church persecuted by Jewry and the false church. The opening of the Sixth Seal (Revelation 6:12; Matthew 24:29-31) at the close of the Gentile dispensation will commence "the time of Jacob's trouble," and the great tribulation under which Christians have lived will try Israel's elect who will be martyred, along with the "saved" non-elect whose names remain in the Book of Life.
At the end of the Gentile dispensation the half hour silence will be broken with "voices, and thunderings, and lightnings [in the heavens], and an earthquake" (Revelation 8:5; Ezekiel 10:2).
When the Seventh [Trumpet] angel "sounds there will be great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world have become the Kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign forever and ever. The twenty-four elders who sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty, who is, and was, and is to come; because You have taken Your great power, and reigned. And the nations were angry, and Your wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that You should give reward to Your servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear Your Name, small and great; and should destroy them who destroy the earth. And the temple of God in heaven was opened, and there was seen in His temple the Ark of His Covenant: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunders, and an earthquake, and a great hail" (Revelation 11:15-19).
The appearance of the unveiled Ark in the Holy of Holies indicates the way into God's Presence is open for Israel. This revelation confirming Christ's past work of Atonement will come to the faithful 144,000 "who worship therein" in one day after midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Revelation 11:1; Isaiah 66:8).
When the seventh angel pours out his Vial into the air "a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, will say, "It is done" (Revelation 15:8). And there will be voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great" (Revelation 16:17-18).
Revelation 8:3-5 is a parenthesis "signifying" what happens during the silence in heaven the space of half an hour after the opening of the Seventh Seal. We are so close to Daniel's Seventieth Week the seven measures of the Spirit of God are preparing themselves to reveal the Trumpet mysteries to Israel's two witnesses. "And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and a vast quantity of incense was given to him to mingle with the prayers of all saints [for we are one Body] upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense given to the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand".
In Revelation 5:8, "When Jesus had taken the Book, the four living creatures [representing the saints] and the twenty four elders fell down before the Lamb, every one of them having harps and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers [or revelation] of saints." In Revelation 8 much incense of the perfect interpretation of the Word, which is the revelation of the Seven Seals is offered with the many millions of golden vials of revelation of the Church Age saints. These golden vials were broad shallow bowls or deep saucers, while according to the Greek, this golden censer was a vessel containing frankincense which is "the prayers of all saints" formerly contained in myriad golden vials. And whereas the incense for the earthly temple service was compounded of most precious spices so that in its normal condition it was "most holy" (Exodus 30:34-38) like "the Words of the prophecy of this Book. If any man shall add to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this Book: and if any man shall take away from the Words of the Book of this prophecy, God will take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this Book".
The "vast quantity of incense," the Prophet is mingling with the prayers or revelations of all saints is "the Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him, to show to His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and Jesus sent and signified it by His angel [William Branham] to His servant John [who represents Christ's end-time Bride" (Revelation 1:1; 3:14; 10:7; 14:8; 22:6, 9-10). It is the "huge portion of Heaven . . . [prophesied by Danny Henry which] . . . in itself is what will give and make come to pass the tremendous victory in the love Divine" (Paradox, p. 41:300-311). A combination of this incense of THUS SAITH THE LORD given to the prayers (or revelation) indicates Divine acceptance of the faith of all saints "in the unity of the faith [of Jesus]".
It was the smoke of the incense added or given to the prayers of all saints that was accepted rendering them acceptable before God through the incense of His merit and their identification or oneness with Him through faith alone. The New Testament saints are a kingdom of individual priests to the glory of God and fellowservants with the seventh angel, the ministering spirit to whom Jesus revealed the revelation of Himself (Revelation 1:6; 19:10; Hebrews 1:14). "Blessed is he who reads, and they who hear the Words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand" (Revelation 1:3).
Romans 15:16: "[as Paul was] the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the Gospel of God that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable," the seventh angel represented Jesus Christ to His Bride of all Ages, as a consequence of which He is now offering us back to God through the efficacy of "the Revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave to Him to show to His servants things that must shortly come to pass, and He sent and signified it by His angel [William Branham (Revelation 10:7)] to His servant John" (Revelation 1:1).
When the Prophet was caught up beyond the curtain of time, a voice said, "You've been gathered to your people like Jacob was gathered to his people."
I said, "All these my people? Are all these Branhams?" He said, "No, they're your converts to Christ."
And I looked around, and there was a real pretty woman run up. She looked real . . . They was all about the same. She threw her arm around me, and she said, "Oh, my precious brother." She looked at me. I thought, "My, she looked like an angel." And she passed by, and that voice said, "Didn't you recognize her?"
I said, "No, I didn't recognize. . ." Said, "You led her to Christ when she was past ninety." Said, "You know why she thinks so much of you?"
I said, "That pretty girl was past ninety?" "Yeah," said, "She can never change no more now." Said, "That's the reason she's saying, "precious brother."
I thought, "Oh, my, and I was afraid of this. Why, these people are real." They wasn't going anywhere. They wasn't tired being there. And I said, "Well, why can't I see Jesus?"
He said, "Well now, He will come someday, and He will come to you first, and then you'll be judged." Said, "These people are your converts that you have led."
And I said, "You mean by being a leader, that He will judge me?" He said, "Yes."
And I said, "Does every leader have to be judged like that?" Said, "Yes."
I said, "What about Paul?" He said, "He will have to be judged with his?" "Well," I said, "if his group goes in, so will mine, 'cause I've preached exactly the same Word." I said, "Where he baptized in Jesus' Name, I did too. I preached. . ." And the millions screamed out, all at once, said, "We're resting on that" (Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 381:5 382:7).
So are we all.
Then "the angel took the censor, and filled it with fire of the altar [typed by Christ following His first crucifixion before Titus besieged Jerusalem (Ezekiel 10:2, 7) and fulfilled in the First Trumpet plague (Revelation 8:7)], and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake." These coals from the altar of incense in the heavenly Sanctuary had sanctified and offered back to God the revelation of His Word made flesh in the Bride of each age. When the last saint predestinated to Christ's end-time Bride has taken his place in the Body, the evening service of the Pentecostal Feast will have ended; the cinders will be cast down to earth with Satan and his angels, cleansing the heavenly Sanctuary of their dross and marking the close of the Gentile dispensation with judgment smiting the earth (Malachi 4:6; Matthew 3:12). The Alaskan earthquake on Good Friday 1964 was a token of what will take place at the Seventh Trump of Revelation 11:15-19 when the coals of fire in Revelation 8:5 and the Sixth Seal manifest (Revelation 6:12), and the Seventh Vial is poured out (Revelation 16:18). The fire that made effluent the virtues of Christ for the blessing of His people is poured back on earth for vengeance, resulting in unprecedented convulsions on the world.
Revelation 8:1, 3-5 takes place after Laodicea when redemption is over. Christ's end-time Bride was fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary because God foreknew we would receive the "huge portion of Heaven" which is the "vast quantity of incense given to mingle with the prayers of all saints," the revelation of the Seven Sealed Book by which we recognize our day and its Message and do not ignorantly impersonate the Word for a day gone by. Hebrews 11:39-40, "The [PART-Word saints] having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise [of resurrection and glorification]: God having provided some better thing for us [translation and glorification without death], that they without us [that is, without the incense of the Message of the seventh angel] should not be made perfect [in glorified bodies]".
So long as the Blood was on the Mercy Seat grace was available and God could not allow man to destroy the world. Once the Blood was lifted, there would be nothing but judgment (Revelation 11:18). II Thessalonians 2:6-8, "That man of sin, the son of perdition is restrained from revealing himself at this time, although his work of lawlessness and rebellion is already going on, only the Holy Spirit who now restrains him will do so until He is taken out of the way in the first resurrection and translation of the saints. Then that wicked one will be revealed [incarnate in Rome's pope], whom the Lord shall consume with the spoken Word and destroy with the brightness of His Coming" (Revelation 19:20).
Isaiah 66:1, "Thus says the Lord, The heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool [or Judgment Seat]: what manner of house would you build for Me? and where would be the place of My rest?" Of course the Place of God's rest is in Christ (Matthew 3:17; 11:28).
Since the Blood was removed from the Mercy Seat in 1963 prior to the revelation of the Seven Seals, why, after forty-nine years has God not "smitten the earth with a curse" (Malachi 4:6)? Because the presence of Christ's end-time Bride renders this Judgment Seat a Mercy Seat, for the Life is in the Blood and we are the Blood of Christ by the baptism with the Holy Ghost (Leviticus 17:11; Galatians 3:27-29).
Revelation 9:20-21, "The rest of the ungodly who were not killed by these plagues did not repent of the works of their hands nor cease to worship demons and idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk. Nor did they repent of their murders, or of their sorceries, or of their fornication [which is idolatry], or of their thefts".
The Sixth Trumpet is set in the Laodicean Church Age where the lukewarm churches apostatized. Since the revelation of the Seven Seals Christ has been calling His elect into the present holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of Israel's Pentecostal feast and the rapture. "As many as I love [NOT as many as love Me], I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore and repent" (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4; 3:15, 19). nl730.htm
