Bible Believers' Newsletter 732
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. May He bless you with this offering:
Our main article focuses upon atonementour oneness with Christ the Word in the unity of the faith which is the mind of God in you. It stresses the extreme lateness of the hour and brings to consciousness the fact Jesus' ministry "proclaimed the acceptable day of the Lord" which was the Pentecostal Jubilee Israel refused a second time typed by Mount Sinai, bringing that nation and subsequently counterfeit Israel under the dreadful curse of "the Law of sin and death" for three thousand five hundred years plus two thousand years of Trumpet Judgments. Brother Branham's ministry "proclaimed the Day of vengeance of our God" which will be our Pentecostal Jubilee and the end of grace; the first resurrection, the great tribulation, the redemption and martyrdom of 144,000 elect Israelites, and the consummation of life.
Many in the circle of this Message are casually "playing church," not taking God's Word seriously but conflating faith with reason for friendship with the world and the approval of family and friends. We must not avoid our responsibility as men by confusing phileo love with agape love which is corrective, always. When we neglect to expose sin and bring correction our carnal-minded phileo love brings death. The objective of this life is to put on the character of Christ by conforming our life to God's will expressed in His revealed Word. "To be spiritually minded is life and peace because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the Law of God, neither can it be. So those who are in the flesh cannot please God."
We must take the strait and narrow way of God's revealed Word and eternal Life not the easy way of flesh and transient pleasure, and hold the sword of God's Word to the throat of the enemy in the strong hand of faith. The mere association of kindhearted people with the true believer might well bring death in return for their kindness.
The legacy we leave our non-elect loved ones will not be material security or family photos of their happiness in sin, but the witness of character and a stand for God's Word when it brings them tears. Shortly they will all die a terrible death with the choice of martyrdom for refusing the trinitarian mark of the beast and declining to serve Rome's will; hereby they may preserve their name in the Book and be granted into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment. Those who choose the easy path will have their time in the lake of Fire. Your legacy will influence their destiny. Choose you this day the manner of love you wish to bequeath those dearest you.
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.

NATO Warplanes traffic Drugs from Afghanistan
April 15, 2012 Afghan Expert: "cultural" exchange for toilet paper . . . The new role of NATOthe transit of drugs from the Talibanthis, during the expert meeting on "Regional Security in the Afghan context of uncertainty," which is held in Alma-Ata, said the head of the public association "Center of the Afghan" Ariana "Ahmadulla Vastok. According to him," announced plans to strengthen the "non-military role" in Afghanistan, but in reality, NATO warplanes trafficked drugs from Afghanistan for distribution in Europe, including those of the provinces where poppy monopolized by the Taliban.

Comment: Under NATO, the drug barons apparently have a free hand to engage in what they know besthow to produce as much heroin as possible to flood the streets of our cities, enriching the handful that controls this evil trade. . . Total export earnings from opiates for Afghanistan are worth 2.4 billion USD, or 15% of GDP. Full story: pravda.ru. US/NATO Troops Patrolling Opium Poppy Fields in Afghanistan.

The United States' Barbarous Policy on Iran
April 15, 2012 Given that bankers, corporate lawyers and top corporate executives hold key positions in the US state and given that they fund and contribute to elite policy formulation organizations, it can be concluded that the point of US primacy is to secure the financial and corporate class's profit-making interests. These include: creation of conditions for low-wage labor; the elimination of infant-industry protections; bans on subsidized pricing of necessities; upward redistribution of income; privatization of heath care and education; weakening environmental and health and safety regulations; and so on; in other words, all that is necessary to make profits fatter, and at the same time, all that makes the lives of ordinary people—in Iran and the West–meaner, poorer, shorter, and more uncertain. . .
The barbarism—concealed beneath lies about the need to protect Israel from an existential threat posed by an Iran that is "suspected" to be secretly building nuclear weapons –is revealed: Iran is being impoverished and threatened with physical destruction, not because it's an offensive threat to anyone's physical safety, but because its insistence on sovereignty is a threat to unrestricted Western corporate and financial domination of the Middle East.

Towards a Permanent US Military Presence in Southeast Europe
April 12, 2012 US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has announced that Washington will "help" Kosovo to join NATO as well as the European Union. . . Membership into the EU for Kosovo would be welcoming another failed state, something which may not bother US Secretary Clinton, but which the EU at this juncture definitely can do without. Best estimates place unemployment in the country at as much as 60%. . . Kosovo is a tiny parcel of land in one of the most strategic locations in all Europe from a geopolitical standpoint of the US military objective of controlling oil flows and political developments from the oil-rich Middle East to Russia and Western Europe. . . It also protects the multi-billion dollar heroin trade, which, significantly, has grown to record dimensions in Afghanistan according to UN narcotics officials, since the US occupation. . .
The question then becomes, why are Washington, NATO, the EU and inclusive and importantly, the German Government, so eager to legitimize the breakaway Kosovo? A Kosovo run internally by organized criminal networks is easy for NATO to control. It insures a weak state which is far easier to bring under NATO domination. Combined with NATO control over Afghanistan where the Kosovo heroin controlled by Prime Minister Thaci originates, the Pentagon is building a web of encirclement around Russia that is anything but peaceful. . .

Comment: An alternative banner might read "Why a decent man like Ron Paul does not stand a chance in the presidential race against incumbent Obama or the Republican flunkies nominated to ensure Obama a second term".
Barack Obama's Attorney admits the Birth Certificate is Fake
April 16, 2012 It's official. The man sitting in the highest public office in America is an outlaw and has no legitimate claim to the White House. Any member of the House of Representatives or the United States Senate who says that Barack Obama is a legitimate office-holder should be held to account for being part of the greatest criminal conspiracy in our history . . . Barack Obama's own attorney says his birth certificate is a forgery. If Mr. Obama is not a natural-born citizen as the overwhelming majority of Americans believe, then he cannot legitimately appear on the numerous states' ballots in the presidential race. On April 12, 2012, Alexandra Hillthe attorney for Mr. Obama in New Jerseytold the presiding judge in open court that Barack Obama's birth certificate is a forgery . . .
In spite of the bombshell admission no mainstream news outlet has covered what happened at the trial yet. Judge Jeff Masin blocked the case and basically told the plaintiffs that it's now up to the New Jersey Secretary of State to decide the issue of Mr. Obama's eligibility. Talk about judicial courage.
Mario Apuzzo, the attorney for the plaintiffs, had this to say about the incident: "Upon my request that she so stipulate, Obama's lawyer agreed during the trial that there was absolutely no evidence before the court as to who Obama is or where he was born, including excluding from evidence the internet image of Obama's alleged Certificate of Live Birth he released on April 27, 2011. The ALJ confirmed that to be the case . . ." Full story: beatobama.us

Col. Douglas Macgregor: Two Failed Wars and why I support Ron Paul
April 15, 2012 What appeals to me about Ron Paul can be summed up by one of his performances during the debates. . . When they got to Ron Paul they asked him about lobbyists and he said, "You know, I don't know any lobbyists. I won't meet with them."
The fact that Ron Paul knew no lobbyists and wouldn't meet with them is a measure of the man's integrity. And frankly, a demonstration to the extent that he is not corrupt. He is there not only to represent his district but as Edmund Burke suggested, to also think clearly about what is in the interest of the American people and try and act in accordance with that larger national interest as well as the interest of his constituents . . .
Globalization and the so-called new world order . . . are really Trojan Horses for the socialist elite that dominates both western Europe and North America, to essentially re-engineer society to suit themselves. And as you can imagine, like all ruling elite they are corrupt. This also goes to the issue of the central bank and the origins of not only the Federal Reserve System but the central banking system in Europe. These things have turned out to be destructive because not only do they seek to socialize losses by shifting the burden by compensating the losses to the taxpayers in both Europe and North America, but it also allows them to manipulate countries and states into conflicts with each other that otherwise would probably not occur. That, again, is another reason I have been very supportive of Ron Paul because I think central banking has turned out to be a disaster. . . Full story: thedailybell.com
A Year after the Invasion of Libya: Poverty, Division and Death
April 4, 2012 France was the country responsible for launching the first bomb on Libya and paving the way for a military invasion led by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) which had the precise goal of overthrowing the government of Muammar Gaddafi. . . the United States would lead the NATO intervention, calling for the "collaboration" of its allies France, Britain and Italy, among others, the difference from the previous invasions they led in Afghanistan and Iraq, where they sent in their military strength unilaterally. . .
According to the Venezuelan ambassador in Libya, Afif Tajeldine, the death toll could exceed 70,000, given that NATO has made more than 20,000 air raids and surpassed 8,000 armed attacks. . . The diplomat recalled the high level of human development that the country of Libya had, the second in quality of life in Africa and among the top ten worldwide. . .

Let us see what is behind the Syrian Terrorists
April 4, 2012 The Syrian Opposition is not the people of Syria. Despite what the Opposition is saying, the Syrian Government is largely popular and despite what the Opposition is saying, this so-called Syrian National Council is a mirror of the Transitional National Council in Libyarapists, racists, torturers, arsonists, thieves and murderers.
And what is the Syrian National Council? A large part of it is a Turkish-based group called Suriye Ulusal Geçis Konseyi . . .
Does an "unarmed civilian" destroy a military jet in full view of SKY News, which claimed it was a "victory"? Do unarmed civilians use RPGs, do unarmed civilians use machine guns, and do unarmed civilians attack and murder 3,000 Government Security Personnel? No, these are not unarmed civiliansthey are terrorists and they have been armed and financed by the west, yet again. One faction is the al-Nusra Front to Protect the Levant, a group which has links to Al-Qaeda (•••AL QAEDA IS THE BABY OF CIA/MI6 AND MOSSAD COMPANY) and this is the group which claimed responsibility, gloating in a 45-minute video, for the terrorist attacks in Aleppo and Damascus, using car bombs. The terrorists gloated about raping a woman and murdering her son. It also claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack in Damascus in January. The General Secretary of this terrorist group is called Al-Faith Abu Mohammed al-Golani. Al-Qaeda flags were visible in the background during this sickening act. . .

Two Years after the BP Oil Spill: Is the Gulf Ecosystem Collapsing?
April 18, 2012 And all of that lovely Corexit dispersant sprayed on water, land and air? It inhibits the ability of microbes to break down oil, and allows oil and other chemicals to speed past the normal barriers of human skin. Background here: NYT Impact of Gulf Spill's Underwater Dispersants Is Examined: Speaking on the chemical ingredients of the dispersants used, "The report finds that "Of the 57 ingredients: 5 chemicals are associated with cancer; 33 are associated with skin irritation from rashes to burns; 33 are linked to eye irritation; 11 are or are suspected of being potential respiratory toxins or irritants; 10 are suspected kidney toxins; 8 are suspected or known to be toxic to aquatic organisms; and 5 are suspected to have a moderate acute toxicity to fish." If you still don't have a sense of the devastation to the Gulf, American reporter Dahr Jamail lays it out pretty clearly. . . Full story: washingtonsblog.com
Significant Increase in Activity of the Volcano Nevado del Ruiz, Colombia
April 3, 2012 Nevado del Ruiz seems to be getting closer to a new eruption. INGEOMINAS reports that during the last week, there has been a significant increase in the activity of the volcano . . . According to the diagnosis made so far, INGEOMINAS expects an eruption in the coming weeks, but smaller in size than those in November 1985 and September 1989. . . Full story: volcanodiscovery.com
Comment: Of his Spiritual dreams Joe Brandt wrote, "When I looked at Grand Canyon, that great big gap was closing in, and Boulder Dam was being pushed from underneath. And then, Nevada, and on up to Reno. Way down south, way down. Baja, California. Mexico too. It looked like some volcano down there was erupting, along with everything else. I saw the map of South America, especially Colombia. Another volcano—eruption—shaking violently. I seemed to be seeing a movie of three months before—before the Hollywood earthquake" (biblebelievers.org.au).

Cleansing the Sanctuary for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb
Genesis 3:22-24, "The Lord God said: Obviously in knowing good and evil the man [not the woman, who was deceived (I Timothy 2:14)] has become like one of us; and now he might put forth his hand and also take of the Tree of Life and live forever. So the Lord God expelled him from the Garden of Eden, to till the ground whence he was taken. He drove out the man and placed cherubim east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword [or Shekinah] turning in every direction [as a revolving flame] to guard the way to the Tree of Life".
O every heart yearns to be restored to the Paradise of God, but the only way back to Eden is through the cherubim and the Pillar of Fire at the Altar, the Shekinah, which is the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord, the Logos and Presence of God who is the Tree of Life, Jesus Messiah. But the eternal Life of the Tree had to become flesh first. "Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and eternal Life: no man comes to the Father but by the Sacrifice on the Altar. If you had known Me, you should have known My Father also: henceforth you know Him, and have seen Him" (John 14:6-7). So God moved the place of worship from this earthly paradise to the outside world, yet so long as there was no blood on that altar evincing an innocent and acceptable life sacrificed to atone for the original sin contracted in our first birth through the woman plus our personal sins after the age of accountability, it was a judgment seat.
God placed Adam and Eve under the blood of two lambs, the evidence of innocent life surrendered in substitution for the lives of the guilty (Genesis 3:21; Leviticus 17:11; Deuteronomy 12:23). This provided a temporary covering though not atonement for sin, which demands an identical substitute for the original sinless innocence of Adam's life. Man's Redeemer must be a sinless near KINSMAN. Animals are not kin to man and have no soul that can come back upon the repentant sinner in a second, Spiritual birth, imparting the Redeemer's eternal Life to His soul through faith in the "present Truthwhat Jesus is doing now" (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:1-7). Our second birth is through the Man Christ Jesus, the Creator God who manifest in virgin-born flesh to fulfill the part of KINSMAN Redeemer for the first Adam and his fallen race. His soul is the Spirit of God that quickens us to eternal Life through faith.
John 6:54-56, "[Jesus said] He who eats My flesh [Word] and drinks My blood [Spirit] has eternal Life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed; he who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him." Jesus is God's Word, the Tree of Life made flesh. He was not commending cannibalism and the consumption of blood which is forbidden, but admonishing believers to "atone" and become at-one with Him in Word and Spirit which nourish and refresh our born-again soul with eternal Life as He commanded Ezekiel: "Eat this scroll, [become one with the Word], and go speak to the House of Israel" (Ezekiel 3:1-3). Likewise He told us: "eat the open Book" to become one with the revelation of the Seven Seals and "prophesy again to many peoples . . ." (Revelation 10:8-11). Unity in the faith with our Husband the Word is the basis of the Seven Vials of Revelation 15 and 16 typed by the ordeal of jealousy imposed upon a wife suspected of infidelity (Numbers 5:11-31).
The Old Testament saints were imprisoned in death and the grave until the KINSMAN Redeemer met sin's price for Adam and his fallen race. Following Jesus' death, resurrection and cleansing the heavenly tabernacle of their sins accumulated over four thousand years, the Judgment Seat became a Mercy Seat, "and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who slept arose, and came out of the graves after His resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared to many" (Matthew 27:52-53).
Now, since the last saint predestinated to the PART-Word Body was redeemed in 1963, Christ's Mediation is completed. Revelation 4, 5 and 10:1-7 have been fulfilled and as Scripture clearly portrays, the Mercy Seat is now a Judgment Seat. Christ is no longer a Mediator as Son of God; since He has claimed the Book of Life, the Title Deed to creation and those of Adam's race whose names remain within, and resuming the prophetic office of Son of man He is now King of Kings and Judge (Revelation 5:8-10; John 5:27; 17:14).
"But if Christ is no longer a Mediator, grace has ended and no one can be saved"!
Whilst it is true that redemption is over, since the revelation of the Seven Seals we do have today by God's help, the perfect interpretation of the Word with Divine vindication (Revelation 10:7) thus potentially more grace through faith than at any time. And because "the mystery of God is finished" God's elect have no need of a go-between to mediate for the ignorance of what was formerly sealed from the foundation of the world. Matthew 7:7-8: "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for everyone who asks [in faith] receives; and he who seeks [in God's unchanging Word] finds; and to he who knocks the Door shall be opened [and that Door is Christ]".
Everyone in Adam's race is born "saved" from his mother's womb as his name was written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world when in God's foreknowledge Christ was crucified to redeem Adam and his kin. So long as their name remains in the Book they are "saved" and following the general resurrection they will be granted into eternal Life by the saints at the White Throne Judgment (Revelation 13:8; 17:8; John 1:29; I John 2:2). Jesus could not fully redeem the Church Age saints on Calvary because the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals and with only PART-Word they could not come into the unity of the faith without mediation. However Christ's end-time Bride and the 144,000 elect Israelites were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary because we are predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word by the revelation of the Seven Seals and the Seven Trumpets through the ministries of Brother Branham and the two prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 respectively.
"But if there is no blood on the Mercy Seat we are all doomed"!
Not at all! While there is now no Blood on the Mercy Seat in the heavenly Sanctuary and that Mercy Seat has become a Judgment seat as portrayed in Revelation 4, the elect Church is the Blood of Christ by the baptism with the Holy Ghost, for the Life is in the Blood (Galatians 3:26-29). And so long as His Blood is on earthGod's footstool or Judgment Seatthis earth is a Mercy Seat. But grace will end when the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial manifest and the resurrection commences, and once we change in the atoms to meet the Lord in the Air the Blood will leave; earth will become God's Judgment Seat with Satan incarnate in the pope of the Judaeo-Roman church (II Thessalonians 2:6-8).
The cherubim guard God's throne so one must pass them in order to enter the place of His Presence. They were four, the number of "deliverance" and "terrestrial creation." The animal features of the cherubic life forms represent the nature of the lion, the ox, the man and the eagle, but man whose soul is made in the image of God is the center of life and the highest form of animal life. As regards his destiny man is complete in Christ the glorified God-man and as he expands his fullness in the world so does the God-man in the Gospels. As the tribes of Israel in groups of three guarded the Ark of the Old Covenant, the cherubim represent the four Gospels through which we approach the Holy Spirit of the New Covenant under the first four Seals of redemption, and becoming at-one with their Message they thus represent the Church.
The Light rose in Jerusalem in the east, introduced by the living creature with the face of a Lion through Matthew's Gospel which was addressed primarily to the Israelite majority in Pentecost and the first three Church Ages under the First Seal of redemption from AD33 to 606 expressing the nature of the apostle: the royal freedom of the fighting, conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah that contends and overcomes all.
The Light was introduced to the west by the living creature with the face of a bullock through Mark's Gospel which was addressed to Roman or Gentile believers in the Thyatira Church Age. It contained few references to Old Testament prophecy and numerous explanations of Hebrew words and customs (Mark 3:17; 5:41; 7:1-4, 11, 34). Under the Second Seal of redemption from 606 to 1520 many Gentiles were entering the faith. The bullock expresses the nature of a pastor, a labouring, suffering and bleeding animal of burden and sacrifice.
The Light was introduced to the south by the living creature with the face of a man through Luke's Gospel which was written especially for the Gentiles who represented the majority of the saints in the Sardis and Philadelphia Church Ages. Brother Luke is at pains to explain Israelite customs and sometimes substitutes Greek names for Hebrew. Under the Third Seal of Redemption from 1520 to 1906 man represents the office of teacher in his intellect, wisdom, ideality and precision.
The Light was introduced to the north by the living creature with the face of an eagle through John's Gospel which was written to inspire faith in Jesus Messiah as the Son of God. Under the Fourth Seal of Redemption from 1906 to the end of the Gentile dispensation the eagle represents the evangelist in Laodicea; but in this holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of Israel's Pentecostal FeastGod's prophet and Christ's end-time Bride soaring above the earth in the S_O_N-Light of the Spirit free from toil and engaged in vision.
The four Gospels guard the Holy Spirit against what is profane, and saints born a second time under the first four Seals of redemption receive the nature of the living creature that introduces the Seal for their Age. The Church responded to the anointing of the Spirit working among them as Brother Branham explains under the revelation of the Fifth Seal.
When Ezekiel saw the appearance of the likeness of the glory of God and the cherubim he saw what Moses, Isaiah, Daniel and John saw in their visions. In Revelation 21:10-11 John saw Him sitting in His Glory, which is "New Jerusalem coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a Bride adorned for her husband." The glory of God is Jesus Christ and the glory of Jesus Christ is His Wife: through the invisible marriage union or new birth the two are one. Five hundred and ninety-five years before the birth of Jesus Ezekiel 1:1-5 and 26-28 depicted the Son of man in the midst of the four living creatures seemingly enthroned atop the fifteen hundred mile high Mount Zion overshadowed with the Shekinah. The living creatures represent the glorified Church and the seven rainbow colours of the sevenfold Spirit of God that divided itself throughout the seven Church Ages gathered back into the unity of their original amber or emerald green, signifying Life. Red represented perfect love in redemption through the Blood, and each of those seven colours represented the purity of God's motive and objective in the ministry of His sevenfold Spirit through the angels to each of the seven Church Ages, each colour and Spirit and Gospel Light blending in with its neighbour.
God is Light, and the rainbow colours of Spiritual Light reflect the attribute of His Life imbued as the Token or evidence of the Life of Christ in the saints to counter the insidiously satanic strategy of the children of Darkness against their dispensation, as for instance, the green of Life in Thyatira's Dark Age. Red (Ephesus), orange (Smyrna), yellow (Pergamos), green (Thyatira), blue (Sardis), indigo (Philadelphia), and violet (Laodicea). The rainbow we see above is only half of the Covenant whereas the horizontal rainbow overshadowing New Jerusalem, the Church, will be the full circle. Half is the Old Covenant, the other half is the New. We require the Old Testament to explain the New and the New Testament to understand the Old. And as the seven colours of Noah's rainbow, which was the sign of God's Covenant with the earth and every living creature after the Flood, blend seamlessly together, so do the Old and New Covenants. The visible arc of the seven colours of the rainbow testify that through the seven colours of seven Church Ages the Lord God will save and restore earth and the whole creation to pristine perfection in a renewed heavens and earth.
Ezekiel 1:28, "Like the rainbow in the clouds after a shower, such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and heard the voice of one speaking." The glory of the Lord is covering the Church because He is in the Church (John 14:7)!
In Revelation 4:1-7, John, representing YOU as Christ's end-time Bride caught up in the Spirit into heaven after the close of the Laodicean Church Age, described the same vision: "Immediately I was in the Spirit and saw a throne in heaven, and one seated on the throne. And He was to look upon like a jasper stone and a sardius: and a rainbow that looked like an emerald surrounded the throne. And round the throne were twenty-four thrones seating twenty-four elders clothed in white and with golden crowns on their heads. And from the throne issued flashes of lightning, and voices and peals of thunder: and before the throne burnt seven lamps of fire, which are the seven Spirits of God. And before the throne there was a sea of glass like crystal. Around the throne on each side were four living creatures full of eyes in front and behind [indicating the saints' intelligence of Jesus Messiah, "the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come" (Revelation 4:8; John 14:26; 16:13)]. And the first living creature was like a lion, and the second like a calf, and the third had a face as a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle".
Brother Branham said, "Watch! Isaiah saw the same thing just exactly" (Revelation Chapter Four, Part III, p. 694:281). Isaiah 6:1-4, "In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple." Brother Branham frequently referred to this Scripture as the vision as of the glory of the Lord, which is Jesus Christ and His Bride of all Ages. As Joseph His type was adorned with a coat of many colours, Christ is adorned by His rainbow Bride.
"Above the seraphims were in attendance on Him: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried to another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the fullness of the whole earth is His glory (Psalms 24:1 72:19). And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of Him who called, and the Sanctuary was filled with smoke".
Those visions match that of our opening text, Genesis 3:24. Newsletter 549 explained how in Isaiah 6 Israel's apostasy foreshadows the glory of Christ and His Bride drawn out from the apostate church. John 12:37-41 quotes Isaiah 53:1 and 6:9-10 as a summary account of the obdurate unbelief of the mass of Judeans and their rulers in contrast with the account of Jesus' testimony to Himself in the same chapter:
"Though He had done so many signs before them, yet they did not believe on Him: that the saying of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled: Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?" They were without faith, and the Kingdom of God is built upon the rock of revelation from Above (Matthew 16:13-16).
"Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah again said: He has blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, and perceive with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. Isaiah said this because he saw His glory and spoke of Him".
In Acts 28:24-28 after expounding and testifying the Kingdom of God to the Israelites at his lodgings in Appii Forum from morning till evening, Paul quoted Isaiah 6:9-10 as they departed in unbelief: "Well spoke the Holy Ghost to your fathers through Isaiah the prophet: Go to this people and say, Hearing you shall indeed hear, and will not understand; and seeing with the eyes you will see, and not perceive: for the heart of this people has become fat, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; so that they should not see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should not be converted, and I should not heal them. Therefore let it be clearly understood, that this salvation of God is sent to the Gentiles, and they will listen".
In his vision of the glorified Messiah enthroned as Son of David, Isaiah foresaw His rejection, the earthquake "in the year that king Uzziah died," and Israel's profanity centuries before the lewd Talmud was even conceived. Eight centuries before its satanic hatred would cause His denunciation and murder, and two millennia before Israel's soon-coming revival by the prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11. These too will be slain along with the remnant of 144,000 elect Israelites. Thereafter Jewry will embrace Judaeo-Communism and exercise their "Samson Option" from Judaeo-Communist Russia. Isaiah's vision foreshadows Gentile apostasy in a world Judaized by Talmudic lewdness, usury, economic and financial insanity, Judaeo-Romanism and all-pervading Judaeo-Communism from Jesus Messiah named the final Church Age Laodicea, which means Communism or "People's rights." Jewish-controlled media boast that we live in the "Jewish Age" as Professor Kevin MacDonald observed in reviewing The Jewish Century by Yuri Slezkine:
"A persistent theme among critics of Jews—particularly those on the pre-World War II right—has been that the Bolshevik revolution was a Jewish revolution and that the Soviet Union was dominated by Jews. This theme appears in a wide range of writings, from Henry Ford's International Jew, to published statements by a long list of British, French, and American political figures in the 1920s (Winston Churchill, Woodrow Wilson, and David Lloyd George), and, in its most extreme form, by Adolf Hitler, who [presciently] wrote:
Now begins the last great revolution. By wresting political power for himself, the Jew casts off the few remaining shreds of disguise he still wears. The democratic plebeian Jew turns into the blood Jew and the tyrant of peoples. In a few years he will try to exterminate the national pillars of intelligence and, by robbing the peoples of their natural spiritual leadership, will make them ripe for the slavish lot of a permanent subjugation. The most terrible example of this is Russia." (In Nolte 1965, 406. See Kellogg (2005) for an account of the interactions and influence of White Russian émigrés on the National Socialist Movement in Germany).
This long tradition stands in sharp contradiction to the official view, promulgated by Jewish organizations and almost all contemporary historians, that Jews played no special role in Bolshevism and indeed were specifically victimized by it. Yuri Slezkine's book provides a much needed resolution to these opposing perspectives. It is an intellectual tour de force, alternately muddled and brilliant, courageous and apologetic (Kevin Macdonald, Stalin's Willing Executioners: Jews as a Hostile Elite in the USSR").
Isaiah 6 foreshadows and brings to mind the close of the Gentile dispensation in apostasy with the second crucifixion of the Son of God (Luke 18:8; II Thessalonians 2:1-3; II Timothy 3 4; Hebrews 6:4-6; Revelation 3:14-20). Zechariah 14:3-9: "Then shall the Lord go forth and fight against those nations as when He fights in a day of battle. In that day His feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives which lies before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives will be split from east to west by a very wide valley; half of the Mount will move northward, and half southward. And you will flee by the valley of My mountains, for the valley of My mountains will reach to Azal [apparently a hamlet by the city gate]; you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord My God will come, and all the saints with Him" (Isaiah 29:6; I Thessalonians 4:14; Revelation 12:16; 16:19).
"On that day, the light will not be clear, nor dark, yet there will be continuous day which shall be known to the Lord [and His end-time Bride], not day, nor night: but at evening time it shall be Light [by the Message of Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; 24:27; Revelation 10:7]. In that day living waters will flow out from Jerusalem; half of them to the former [Dead] sea [signifying the "former rain" of Spirit upon the Israelites], and half of them to the hinder [or Mediterranean] sea [signifying the "latter rain" of Spirit on the Gentiles]: in summer and in winter shall it be. [Unlike the natural waters of the Jordan the Holy Spirit will flow continually upon the just and the unjust during the great tribulation of Daniel's Seventieth Week, so that "Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand"]. And the Lord will be King over all the earth: in that day shall there be One Lord, and His Name alone will be worshipped" as foreseen in the visions of Genesis 3:24, Isaiah 6:1-4, Ezekiel 1:1:1-5, 26-28, Revelation 4:1-8 and 21:10-11.
Do you recognize the Scriptures that are coming to pass in your day?
In Isaiah's vision "the Sanctuary was filled with smoke," which signifies God's anger as evidenced by Isaiah's confession and mortal fear and the Lord's condemnation of the Israelites from the time of Isaiah and the dispersion of the Northern Kingdom to the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week under the purging of the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet in the "time of Jacob's trouble" as prophesied by Zechariah 12 14 and Malachi 3 4.
Revelation 15:1, "And I saw another sign in the heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having seven plagues, the last, for in them is finished the anger of God."
Revelation 15:2-4 is a parenthesis revealing the 144,000 elect Israelites who overcome under the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet (Revelation 6:12 7:8; 11:1 14:20). Turning back to Revelation 4:5-6: "Out of the throne issued flashes of lightning, and voices and peals of thunder: and before the throne burnt seven lamps of fire which are the seven Spirits of God. And before the throne there was a sea of glass like crystal: and next to and round about the throne, four living creatures full of eyes before and behind." Here we find that all seven Church Ages are over, the seven portions of the Spirit that quickened the Word of the hour to the angels and saints have left earth and returned to the Throne of God. Christ's mediation for ignorance of the fullness of the Word is fulfilled and in the absence of Blood on the Mercy Seat it is now a Judgment Seat. The laver in the tabernacle of witness in the wilderness was made from the copper looking glasses of the Israelite women; hence it was called "the sea of glass." The water in the laver is crystal clear as the full number of the Church Age saints has been washed in the Blood of the Lamb and is complete (Romans 11:25).
As we have seen in the visions of Genesis 3:24, Isaiah 6:1-4, Ezekiel 1:1-5, 26-28, and Revelation 21:10-11, in Revelation 15 the first resurrection and translation are past: Christ and His Bride of all Ages are at the Wedding Supper in God's throne, which is heaven. On earth "I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and 144,000 elect Israelites who had gotten the victory over the beast [of Papal Rome], and over his [once Protestant] image [the confederation of churches], and over the number of his name [VICARIVS + FILII + DEI = 666], standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are your works, O Lord, God Almighty; [unlike Baptists today, these have been cleansed with the washing of water by revelation of the Word through the ministry of their Moses and Elijah, and recognize the true Oneness of the godhead]: just and true are your ways, You King of the nations. Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your Name? For You only are holy: for all nations shall come and worship before You; for [the righteousness of] Your [Trumpet] judgments is made manifest".
This is not that bunch of winging, whining, eternally persecuted non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews who boast "We are the destroyers," and declare that no matter how much wealth and privilege they are able to extort from the Gentiles they will never be satisfied. These are not hypocritical imposters "living on leeks, and onions, and garlic" in the West where the Covenant is of no effect, but Israelites descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob living the name "Israel," which means Overcomerone who prevails with GodOne God, not one of three, or six of one and half a dozen of the other.
"After [the parenthesis of Revelation 2-4] . . . (insert your name here) . . . saw the open Sanctuary of the tabernacle of witness in heaven: [this connects us to the vision of Revelation 11:19 under the Seventh Trumpet, where the Sanctuary of heaven is open, there being no veil before the Holy of Holies (Matthew 27:51) and the Ark of God's Testament is seen, the symbol of God's favour towards Israel]. And the seven angels came out from the temple, that had the seven plagues, clothed in linen pure and glistening, and girt around the breasts with golden girdles [as judges (1:13; Isaiah 11:3-5)]. And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden vials full of the anger of God, who lives eternally. [The domination of God's anger in inflictions of death is conditioned by the free decisions of men. The manifestation of Absolute Life is a decree of death or cherem to obstinate sinners]. And the Sanctuary was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from His power; and no one was able to enter into the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels in the ordeal of jealousy should be finished".
As Isaiah 6:4, Joel 2:28 and Acts 2:19 foretold for this our day immediately preceding "the great and dreadful day of the Lord" the heavenly Sanctuary is smoking with God's anger. There has been no Blood on the Mercy Seat since mediation ended in Revelation 3. The Church Age saints were complete in Revelation 4. In Revelation 5 Christ took the Title Deed of Redemption and resumed His prophetic office of Son of man as Judge and King of Kings. Revelation 5 is the breach of relationship between the Church Ages and the Seals as indicated on the diagram by the Holy Spirit between the Church Age saints and the Capstone made up of Christ's end-time Bride. The Prophet said, "The Lamb advancing from glory for intercessions (All right). To make claims now for His redemption . . . He'd been on His mediatorial work back here. But remember, these Seals are ready to be opened, and the Lamb come from the Sanctuary of God, advanced forward. . . Wait till we . . . take that one-half hour that is silent; the sanctuary's smoking; [it has been smoking for fifty years]; there is no more intercession; the Sacrifice has left; it's a judgment seat. There's no Blood on it no more, for the Blood-covered Lamb has walked away. Don't you wait till that time . . . And the Lamb comes forth now from being a Mediator between God and man; He becomes a Lion. And when He becomes a Lion, He takes the Book; that's His rights. . ." (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 97:4-5, 99:5).
There's no more Blood on the seat in the sanctuary at all. There's no more Blood on the altar. The sacrifice has been removed; and there's nothing but smoke and lightning and judgment in there. . ." (ibid 408:2).
Brother Branham said: "This was a very hard thing to speak to you people . . . the world will carry right on. People will still come to the altar; they'll still cry out, but it won't do no good. See? It'll be gone. See? It'll be over. There won't be no mercy. Remember that. "And the sanctuary becomes smoky." "He that's filthy is filthy still, he that's righteous is righteous still, and he that's holy is holy still." There's no more mercy; when the Lamb takes the Book, that's it; that's all of it; and it looks a whole lot like it could be now" (Souls that are in Prison Now, p. 53:390-391).
"Just exactly like it was in the days of Noah: one day the door of mercy will be closed. Then the Scripture says, the Sanctuary becomes smoky. That means that the Intercessor has gone from it. And as long as the Lamb is still back there as I've said this morning, or somewhere I was preaching, there's still mercy" (The Flashing Red Light of His Coming, p. 32:160).
Redemption is over. Redemption ended in March 1963 when the Lamb became the Lion and claimed the Book in Revelation 5:7. As explained above, we who are His end-time Bride and the 144,000 elect Israelites were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary and are only now recognizing our position.
Revelation 15:8, "And the Sanctuary was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from His power; and no one was able to enter into the temple, until all seven plagues of the seven angels should be finished".
The Seven Vials or antitype of the ordeal of jealousy in Numbers 5:11-31 tried non-elect professing Christians after each Church Age to separate the foolish virgins who are justified and sanctified but not born-again from the unbelievers and make-believers. These mysteries will be revealed to the 144,000 elect Israelites by God's two witnesses during the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. This will reveal how Esau/Edom and their false churches in league with the Roman State persecuted the Israelite majority but also Gentiles in the first fifteen hundred years of the Church as they persecuted Jacob/Israel from the womb, and do so today through their global domination of banking, communications, education, entertainment, finance and politics (Genesis 3:15; 25:6; 27:39-41; Numbers 20:14-21; Isaiah 34; 63; Ezekiel 25:12-14; Malachi 1:1-4). This revelation will distinguish Satan's mighty false church and its teachings from Christ's "little flock," her Bible faith and doctrine. It will expose the falsehood of Church and secular histories as the revelation of Israel's Trumpet Judgments will distinguish God's Word and promises revealed through Moses and the Prophets from the satanic antitheses of "Jewish fables," and show the Lord's grace in honouring the Patriarchs and sifting an election from the reprobate mass.
In Revelation 5:8 "When Christ took the Book, the four living creatures and twenty-four elders fell down before Him, each having harps, and golden vials containing the revelation of the saints [for their day]." In Revelation 8:3, "Another Angel stood at the altar, and He was given much incense [revelation of the Seven Seals (Revelation 1:1), to offer with [and perfect] the revelation of all [New Testament] saints upon the golden altar before the throne." At the end of the Gentile dispensation He will cast the coals into the earth in judgment (Revelation 8:5; 6:12; 11:19; 12:7-12; 16:18-19, etc). In Revelation 15:7-8 we see seven golden Vials full of God's righteous anger are poured out in succession upon non-elect professing Christians after each Church Age. The climax of God's anger was restrained by the Blood on the Mercy Seat, now it is held back by the presence of Christ's end-time Bride; when our number is complete and we are mature in the unity of the faith to manifest that we are the Sons of God, the Seventh Vial of Revelation 16:17 be will poured out completing the anger of God, and the first resurrection will commence.
As the Old Testament saints had to rest until the God-man Jesus Messiah fulfilled the part of their KINSMAN Redeemer and became "the Pentecostal firstfruits of them that slept," the Church Age saintsall having obtained a good report through faithhave not received the promise of resurrection and glorification, God having provided some better thing for us who are the Christ's at His second or 'parousia' Comingthe manifestation of the Sons of God and translation without deaththat they should not be glorified without us, for we are all one Bodyand so "no one was able to enter into the Sanctuary until all seven plagues of the seven angels should be finished".
As Jesus ascended and cleansed the heavenly temple with His Own Blood before He led the Old Testament saints captive of Life, the temples of our bodies must be cleansed by glorification because "flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God; neither does corruption inherit incorruption" (I Corinthians 15:46-58). As Satan and his host is cast down to earth (Revelation 12:7-12) "The seventh angel [will] pour his vial into the air to cleanse the Fourth Dimension where we gain faith for translation grace to manifest that we are the Sons of God and change in the atoms to meet the Lord and our Brethren in the Sixth Dimension]. Then a great Voice from the throne in the heavenly Sanctuary will say, "It is done." And there will be voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great." This will mark the end of the Gentile dispensation at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial when Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300 400 mile segment of earth sinks beneath the Pacific (Revelation 18:21-24; Luke 21:25), and after two days the first resurrection and the manifestation of the Sons of God will commence.
"And the great city [Jerusalem] will be divided into three parts (Zechariah 13:8-9; 14:4-5; Revelation 11:19), and the cities of the nations will fall: and great Babylon [Rome] will come in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His anger (Revelation 18:6-20). And every island will flee, and the mountains will not be found. And [in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week] a great hail out of heaven will fall upon men, every stone about a hundred pounds weight: and men will blaspheme God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague will be exceedingly great."
The Judaeo-Roman harlot will be stoned according to the Law (Leviticus 20:10; Deuteronomy 22:22):
Adultery is a terrible sin. The Judaeo-Roman church that claims she is the wife of Christ the Word committed adultery at the First Nicaea Council, and to this day conceives spiritual bastard children. A woman who marries while she has a living husband is an adulteress (Romans 7:3; I Corinthians 7:10-11, 39). Children born of natural or spiritual adultery or incest are non-elect bastards who cannot be born-again (Deuteronomy 23:2). God's unchanging Word is settled in heaven. Eve should have been burned along with the Serpent for their awful deed (Leviticus 21:9). And when Rome's satanic religion has gone the full course of the Ages she will be burned with her seducer, for the whore and her (once) Protestant children and the antichrist and Satan will all find their places in the lake of fire (Revelation 2:20-23; 19:20; 20:10).
God's Word is precise and strict. Moses said, "You shall not commit adultery."
Jesus said, "Whoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart" (Matthew 5:27-28).
Speaking about women who wear shorts, slacks and immodest dress, Brother Branham said, "You know, if you dress like that and some sinner on the street looks at you in the wrong way, you're going to answer at the Day of Judgment for committing adultery with that sinner. You might be as virtuous to your husband as you can be; you might be as virtuous to your boyfriend, as loyal as you know how to be; but in the sight of God you're a street harlot" (The World is Falling Apart, #18:10, p. 19:133)! nl732.htm
