Amos 3:7 Refers to Our Day"
This week we'll look at Scriptures Jesus has fulfilled in our day. But first, let's review last week's program about the "The Millennium Bug".
We spoke of manipulation of gold prices by the International Money Cartel who've been exchanging their worthless paper money for our hard assets like power plants, preparatory to collapsing the money system and creating a new currency, backed by their gold monopoly.
Peter de Jager, an expert on the Year 2000 Computer Problem, addressed Federal officials in Canberra. In similar meetings in America last year, he asked 300 representatives from government agencies how many of them were actively engaged in a compliance project, three hands went up. A week later, he spoke before 140 representatives of Canadian public utilities; six hands went up.
With such response, you know the economy's going to crash. It's too late to stop it from happening. If the banks do shut down and stay closed, it'll be a disaster for individuals.
What will it do to governments? The bureaucratic monster known as the welfare state rests on the promise of security for all, their ability to scare people into paying taxes; and on the banking system, which allows taxpayers to write cheques. If banks go down, the welfare state dies. At best, it will be able to print money.
(The United States is one country that can not just "print more money". Not regular money. The FED use thirty-eight German-made special printing presses which are already working at their maximum capacity just replacing worn notes. Furthermore, they can not obtain additional quantities of the special paper without very long lead time).
If our government can't collect taxes it'll pay its employees with paper money. Money's backed by confidence in government. Beginning in 1999 when the Millennium Bug really begins to bite, that confidence will be non-existent. Not just in Australia: throughout the Western world. Wherever governments have relied on mainframe computers to administer the welfare state, the system will begin to crumble. The experiment in government welfare will fail.
Now this may be one reason why the Australian government wants to introduce a point-of-sale tax on goods and services.
I predict computer repair teams will bring in the project late; parallel testing won't be conducted; and the Millennium Bug will hit the whole world, as scheduled, on January 1, 2000.
Plan on it. You can bet the banks have. The Millennium Bug may be a scapegoat for their imploding system of usury called "banking". Roosevelt said, "If something happens in politics, you can bet it was planned that way." Hence Port Arthur and gun control. When voters see that the Party system's sold us out to Communism, and a NWO under the UN, it will be too late.
Jesus said we must search the Scriptures, to recognize our day and its Message.
Let's start with Amos 3:7, "The Lord will do nothing without first revealing His secret to his servants the prophets".
Jesus said the evidence of our Christianity is that the Holy Spirit will reveal the Scriptures God's bringing to pass in our day. Knowing the future removes fear, and gives that peace which passes all understanding.
What should we anticipate for our day? To paraphrase Matthew, Jesus said, the generation that sees Israel restored to Palestine, won't die-out through old age before the Millennium. Israel was restored in 1948, so the youngest of that generation at the age of accountability then, would be 61 now. Christ takes His Church Home seven years before the Millennium. If we're to be a part of that Church, we'd better hurry and find the prophet of Amos 3:7.
No prophet, no first resurrection.
I don't care what any church says. Jesus said, unless we find that prophet, and become written epistles of his Message, we're none of His. Without that Message we can't be born-again, and will perish in the tribulation.
You think the Millennium Bug? I believe the Gentile dispensation will end before it can bite. An earthquake will sink Los Angeles, 1100x4-500 miles of California, and the world economy. Tidal waves will probably wash the Olympic village to Parramatta.
I'm telling you in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, you must find that prophet and receive his Message by faith.
Most don't know Jesus promised us a prophet in this day? Quoting Malachi 4, He said, "Elijah truly shall come before the great and dreadful day of the Lord; he'll restore all things spoken by the mouth of all God's holy prophets since the world began". That's Matthew 17 and Acts 3. In Revelation 10,, He said the same thing: "In the days of the Voice of the messenger to the Seventh Church Age (Assemblies of God, United Pentecostals, Four Square, etc.it ended in 1963), the mystery of the Seven Seals should be finished, as He spoke by His servants the prophets".
Deceivers will try to tell you this was John the Baptist, but Luke 1:17 and John 1 inform us that John was the Elijah of Malachi 3 and Isaiah 40. His ministry restored nothing. Jesus said John laid the ax to the root of all spiritual principles. Three and a half years after his death, John's ministry resulted in the hearts of the apostolic fathers being turned to the children of God, the new church. The Baptist couldn't restore the hearts of the children to their fathers, without denying the One he was sent to introduce.
The prophet that Amos promised with warning before judgment is the Elijah of Joel 2:25; Zechariah 14:7 and Malachi 4:5-6. Whoever he was (PAST tense), he has been in our day, and according to Matthew 17 and Acts 3, he has (past tense) restored the faith once delivered unto the apostolic saints. No new gospel, but the faith or understanding on which Christ founded His Church on the day of Pentecost.
Remember what Jesus told Peter? He said, "Flesh and blood has not revealed Who I Am, but My Father which is in heaven has revealed this to you. And on this rock of Spiritual revelation of the Word, or faith, I'll build My Church. And the gates of hell shall not prevail against faith." They prevailed against Peter who wasn't converted. But Christ's Church isn't built on flesh and blood, its built upon faith. And that's the mind of Christ in you. A clear understanding of His Word. Not what It says. What It means.
The prophet we have to look for is the fourth Elijah. A fifth Elijah will minister to Israel during the tribulation. He'll be a Hebrew. Ours is a Gentile, he's the "angel" or messenger to the Seventh or Laodicean Church Age. According to Jesus in Matthew 24 and Zechariah 14, he'll come from America, because he restores the evening time Light, the same S-O-N Light that shone in the East at the morning offering in Jerusalem, is restored in the West. Amen!
God's Bible is perfect. Read It through the eyes of Melchisedec. Denominational sunglasses shut out the Light. Throw the accursed things away. Jesus said in the last age the mother church and her harlot daughters would be apostate. They'd be wretched, miserable, poorspiritually bankrupt, naked of the Blood, blind to the faith, and know it not. He said, "I counsel you to anoint your eyes with eye salve, so you can see past all that man-made creed and dogma". It's death!
Oh, It shall be Light, in the evening time, the path to glory you will surely find. In the water way is the light today, buried in the precious name of Jesus. Young and old repent of all your sin. The Holy Ghost will surely enter in. The 'Evening Light' has come. It is a fact that God and Christ are One." Amen! Not two or three gods. Jesus said, "The first commandment is, 'Hear O Israel, the Lord thy God is One Lord". The angel said Jesus would be called "Emmanuel". Not a second or third part of God, but God with us,
The prophet we're to look for was the angel or messenger to the Laodicean Church Age. His ministry introduced Christ's parousia. It's calling His Own out from all man-made religious systems into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.
Revelation 4 and 5 were fulfilled after the end of the Laodicean Church Age, after Christ's ministry of Mediation was fulfilled and the last saint predestinated to be born of part-Word was baptized into the Body. Christ came forward and claimed the Book. He was no longer the Lamb. His Intercession was over. He's the Lion. As the Lion, He's King and Judge. He's claimed His redeemed. Now He opens the Seven Seals to reveal how He redeemed the Church in each Age, and who they are. This revelation calls His end-time Bride.
In Revelation 10, Christ descends from heaven in the Shout of I Thessalonians 4:16. The Message of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7 brings Him back to earth in WORD Form, through the mouth of the prophet you must find. It's the midnight cry which wakes the wise and foolish virgins of Matthew 25, "Come out of Babylon and be filled with the Spirit.
Christ swears His days of intercession are over. He says, "There should be time no longer", or no further delay. That which was in part is done away. Without a Mediator, Part-Word can't give the new birth. Since the Seven Seals were revealed through the prophet of Revelation 10:7, that which is perfect is come. Christ, the fullness of the Word!
Peter teaches, the Word of God comes only to a prophet. As God's going to restore the Word, and the second Coming is a "parousia", not the physical or "erchomai" return of the glorified Jesus, He got to send us a prophet. The second Coming is the fullness of the Word. Not the Man. His feet won't touch this earth until all life is destroyed in Armageddon. Then He returns with the glorified saints of all ages to step upon the ashes of the wicked.
Jesus said, "Don't look for a man. If they say He's in the desert or some secret place, believe them not. They're carnal. They're looking for an erchomai or physical Coming. Jesus said this Coming will be universal. And every eye will see Him. The eye of faith, not the eyes in your head. We see by faith, not by sight. He's speaking of His elect. Only they have faith to see (or understand) His Word.
The Man can't appear universally. Half the world's asleep - their eyes are closed. And underground miners wouldn't see Him. But the Bible clearly states that every eye shall see Him. Clearly, those churches expecting the glorified Jesus to drop out of the sky are not the Church He established on the Day of Pentecost. They're not the Church He died to redeem, and not the Church He'll feast with at the Wedding Supper.
You surely know there's a true Church and a false church. The true Church is few in number. Jesus said "Fear not little Flock, strait is the gate, and narrow the way, and few there be that find It: but wide is the gate and broad the way that leads to destruction". Where does that put the denominations? The Message of this last prophet to the Gentiles calls His people out from all of them.
Their end in the Lake of Fire. I can prove that from Scripture. The false churches rule the NWO during the tribulation. Daniel and Jesus taught us that. It's THUS SAITH THE LORD! They'll force the mark of the beast, and kill all who refuse their doctrine or their service.
Christ was only a Mediator whilst the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals. He hasn't been a Mediator since 1963. Its later than most think. When the Seven Seals were opened, "Time was no more". A new cycle called the Seventh Seal commenced. It cannot be stopped or delayed, and takes us right through the Millennium, past the White Throne Judgment into eternity and the new heavens and new earth.
This Seventh Seal is the end of time of all things written in the plan of redemption sealed from the foundation of the world. Every bit ends. It's the end of the struggling world. It's the end of struggling nature. It's the end of the trumpets, the end of the vials. It's the end of the earth. It's even the end of time. Time runs out, the Bible said so. In Revelation 10:6 the angel said, "Time will be no more". Everything runs out in the Seventh Seal.
We've been in that cycle since Christ opened the Seven Seals in 1963 and revealed them through His prophet. There's no more delay. That's why the world is falling apart. That's why the people are going insane. The government doesn't uphold the law yet they enact more and more laws. Our police are powerless. Our Judiciary has a mind of its own. Our elected representatives have sold us out to a foreign-controlled political party system.
No one has answers to these problems, because any suggestions put forward never apply the Absolute of God's Word. Seldom are answers directed to the cause of a problem but accommodate its effects and all too often the motive and objective is mercenary.
God always warned the world of coming judgments, in order that it may receive His way of escape. He warned Noah of the coming Flood, Abraham and Lot of the future destruction of Sodom, told Joseph of the seven years' famine, Moses of the ten plagues on Egypt, Jonah of the destruction of Ninevah, and so-on. Various prophets were told in detail of the coming events. In every case their warnings were startlingly executed. Christ's first Coming was foretold from Genesis to Malachi. Equally plain and inevitable of fulfillment are the warnings of Jesus and the prophets concerning the oncoming judgment that daily comes nearer to every nation on earth.
God said in Isaiah (42:9), "My former prophecies all came to pass, and I declare new things. Before they happen I tell you of them".
From Amos 3:7, we know God must send us a prophet, before the end of the Gentile dispensation. As Israel was restored to Statehood in 1948, we know that whoever he was, that prophet has been. And fulfilled his ministry.
Malachi 4:5-6, Matthew 17:11, Acts 3:19-23, Revelation 10:7 and 18:4, and other Scriptures discussed, tell us the ministry of this prophet RESTORED the apostolic faith, FINISHED the mystery of God, and is now calling His people OUT of Babylon into the UNITY of the faith, for the MANIFESTATION of the Sons of God and the translation.
Now Australians have a happy-go-lucky, she'll be right mate, laid- back attitude to life; quite the opposite to Christians. We're dealing with God's unchanging Word. It's the Absolute, Its precise and will bring to pass exactly what It says, when It says.
We're at the end-time. We know that, because God told Daniel and John to Seal the Bible until the time of the end. Once the Seven Seals were opened, "there should be time no more", and in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel, the mystery of God should be finished. That happened in 1963. Christ is no longer a Mediator. Once He claimed the Book, He became Judge.
In vain the denominations worship Him in the Office of Son of God and Mediator. He's now Son of Man and Judge. Jesus foretold, "the Father would give Him authority to execute judgment as well as to impart eternal Life, because He is the Son of Man".
We're very definitely in the end time. Christ was a Mediator only while the Book was Sealed. As our Mediator, He was a Go-between, interceding with God in behalf of the ignorance, or errors of His elect. From the foundation of the world the Bible was Sealed, and God winked at this ignorance; now He commands all men, everywhere, to repent, and come out of Babylon. Because He's appointed a day wherein He will judge the world in righteousness.
Near-enough is not good enough. We've got to have the testimony of Enoch, being in the unity of the faith. Jesus prayed in John 17, that we may be one, or in agreement, as He and the Father were one, having the mind that was in Christ in us, all speaking the same thing, with no divisions among us; being perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
Unless we're walking in the Light God is manifesting now, unless our lives are written epistles of the PRESENT Truth, we are not, and cannot come under the blood, or be born-again, and can't have fellowship in the Spirit. God's only writing epistles of lives that are manifesting the Word He's fulfilling now.
Now this messenger of Malachi 4 and Revelation 10:7 is going to do two things. One: According to Malachi 4 he'll turn the hearts of the children to their fathers. Two: He'll reveal the mysteries of the seven thunders in Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals. It will be these Divinely revealed "mystery-truths" that literally turn the hearts of the children to the Pentecostal fathers.
If you haven't found that prophet, there's no way you can receive God's ministry of restoration to the apostolic faith. Without this ministry there's no way you can be born-again today. Part-Word and a Mediator was done away with the revelation of the Seven Seals, when that which is perfect, the Fullness of the Word, was come.
This prophet was William Branham, he lived from 1909 to 1965. You may read about him from his critics in any Christian book store. For information, write to:- PO Box 67, Strathpine, QLD, 4500. Transcripts of his sermons are available in all major languages, free of charge.
I can tell you about these things, but its up to you to prove them by God's unchanging Word, and let that Word live through you.
Near-enough is not good enough. We've got to have perfect faith. No one'll get to heaven by guess-work. Since the mystery of God is finished, we've got to receive It by faith, or understanding, that God may see It displayed in our lives.
What's the alternative, Brother Anthony? Well, as you've listened to this program, you're responsible before God to prove the things you've heard. The alternative is condemnation and the tribulation. Those who are restored to the apostolic faith will be translated to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the Sky. Malachi and Jesus said those who are not restored will be smitten with the curse on the earth in the Tribulation plagues. Peter, John and Luke said, "Every soul that will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people". radio084.htm
