Bible Believers' Newsletter 1140

"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
ISSN 1442-8660

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it is good to see you. We extend an especial welcome to our new subscribers.

Android PhoneTaking Jesus' conversation with Nicodemus we demonstrate how Message believers, like our denominational cousins, can be devoted heart and soul, believing what the written Word says but without the faith. Faith is a clear understanding of what Jesus meant—not learning and knowing what He said. Paul admonished, "Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that need not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth." Faith is the mind of God in you. We will be visiting the Millennium today and taking the Prophet's spoken Word back to the Absolute of God's written Word to discern what the Holy Spirit speaking through Him meant. I think you will perceive a perfect illustration of how "the letter kills, but the Spirit gives Life and Truth."

Once again the focus of our current news is the Covid hoax and fraud. Take time to read the Full story and view the videos because the whole world has been deceived. Enlighten your congregation, family and friends; you may save a life.

This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. We encourage you to share our Newsletter with friends, family and colleagues, and look forward to any comments or questions you may have. 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.

Ten Reasons Why SARS-CoV-2 is Imaginary, a Theoretical Virus: they never isolated the Virus

January 29, 2021 — Admissions by governmental scientists and organizations worldwide, as well as omissions and obfuscations by those same people and agencies, reveal the shocking truth. As hard as it may be for the COVID cultists to admit, the emperor truly has no clothes. There is no virus, other than a digital, theoretical abstraction made on a computer from a genomic database. The virus has never been isolated, purified, sequenced, characterized and proven 100% to exist . . .

How did this all start? Chinese scientists took lung fluid samples and claimed they had discovered a novel or new virus. The Gates-Rockefeller-WHO backed them up. In the WHO's Novel Coronavirus 2019-nCov Situation Report 1, they state:

"The Chinese authorities identified a new type of coronavirus, which was isolated on 7 January 2020 . . . On 12 January 2020, China shared the genetic sequence of the novel coronavirus for countries to use in developing specific diagnostic kits." With the evidence presented above, the WHO's assertions and claims are utterly baseless. They constitute outright fraud.

The world has been shut down over a lie—a coldly calculated, carefully curated lie—that was simulated and war-gamed for decades in advance. The COVID cult is an irrational superstition based on nothing but 'in silico,' theoretical, make-believe viral sequences. Yet, the real-world consequences for millions who have been thrown into stress, despair, poverty, joblessness, alcoholism and suicide is anything but theoretical. Full story: globalresearch.ca

Comment: The objective is global depopulation and sovereign debt for global hegemony under Lucifer incarnate, the god of this evil age.


After COVID, Davos moves to the 'Great Reset'

January 27, 2021 — In 1939 the Rockefeller Foundation financed a top secret strategy group working out of the New York Council on Foreign Relations . . . the War and Peace Studies . . . Before German Panzer tanks had even rolled into Poland, they were planning a postwar world where the United States would emerge as the sole victor and replace the British as the global hegemonic power . . . a US-dominated UN and Bretton Woods monetary order based on the dollar was part of their project. In 1941 as America formally entered the war, the CFR group sent a memo to the US State Department:

That successful project has been the framework of what Henry Luce in 1941 called the American Century, and lasted until quite recently.

Papal KeysNow those same families, again including the Rockefeller Foundation and the Rothschilds in the person of Lynn de Rothschild's "Council for Inclusive Capitalism with the Vatican," are moving to create the next generation in their pursuit of global domination (Revelation 17:12-13) . . . the Great Reset . . . significantly endorsed by the Jesuit Pope Francis. Its PR man, Klaus Schwab, is a self-admitted protégé of Rockefeller insider Henry Kissinger, from their days 50 years ago at Harvard.

In May, 2020 as the coronavirus had caused global panic lockdowns . . . British Crown Prince Charles, together with Klaus Schwab, unveiled . . . the Great Reset . . . advanced by the same giga-rich plutocrat families responsible for the flaws of the present world economic model. They . . . created ruin of organic fields and nature with their Roundup glyphosate and toxic pesticides . . . ruined the air quality . . . by the transportation models . . . created the "free market" model of globalization that has ruined the industrial base of the United States and . . . EU . . . as they blame us for an alleged catastrophic emission of CO2, we're being conditioned to accept guilt and be punished in order to "save the next generation" . . . new generation technologies . . . by Google, Huawei, Facebook and countless others, will allow governments to "intrude into the hitherto private space of our minds, reading our thoughts and influencing our behavior . . . will almost certainly become implantable in our bodies and brains."

Vaccine Trade is Fading

January 28, 2021 — Sydney Airports suggests 'the vaccine trade is fading.' The November spike in share prices is from the vaccine development announcements. It's now given up all those gains. Are normal healthy people going to rush out and get the jab just so they can travel overseas? The MSM isn't telling you this, but the vaccine is killing people. Just check out this website. Don't try and search for it with Google though, it won't show up. Big tech is doing its bit to help big pharma help big government give us all an experimental 'vaccine' . . . for our own good of course.

Stay safe! If you need a jab to travel, maybe the industry won't return to 'normal' as expected. That's what the chart is telling you. The other return to 'normal' that just isn't going to happen is the economy returning to any semblance of decent growth. Massive fiscal deficits will not change this . . . 'In reality, debt levels of the type contemplated will slow growth, not accelerate it. There is no stimulus; just more debt and slower growth.'

I suspect this may be the bigger reason behind the overnight sell-off. There has been a bit of a rethink about the 'inflation is coming' narrative . . . 'In their latest statement, Federal Reserve policymakers were decidedly dovish: "The ongoing public health crisis continues to weigh on economic activity, employment, and inflation, and poses considerable risks to the economic outlook".

Nearing Drop-Dead Deadlines

January 26, 2021 — Dr. Lee Merrit: Covid is an unseen transmission device that can be blamed on nature from which you cannot hide. As we have proven effective treatments for Covid, why are we bypassing these inexpensive medicines for unproven bioweapon drugs that are not vaccines and not a solution? The public is not being allowed informed consent. Full story: youtube.com

Comment: 53 dead in Gibraltar in 10 days after Pfizer mRNA COVID Injections, 23 deaths in Norway after Pfizer jab; People with underlying conditions died of Covid, but people who die from the Covid vaccine died from the 'underlying conditions'.

Based on existing research and analysis of therapeutic results using Ivermectin in combination with two other widely available generic drugs—Doxycycline and Zinc—Prof. Thomas Borody asserts that COVID-19 is now curable and even easier to treat than the flu . . . simple, safe, and can get rid of the coronavirus in almost all patients treated within 6 to 10 days . . . all approved by the TGA and the FDA.


Australia approved Pfizer Vaccine when Merck withdrew its Vaccine saying Nature does a Better Job

January 25, 2021 — Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and the Baum Hedlund Law Firm from Los Angeles, California have filed their fifth lawsuit against Merck, taking on the drug company's dangerous and deceptive Gardasil vaccine, and standing up for innocent young people who have been disabled by the vaccine. The law firm is taking on Merck and the grander kangaroo court system, which has shielded vaccine makers from liability for over thirty years.

The law firm's latest client, Michael Colbath, was a healthy athlete and scholar before he got the Gardasil vaccine. After vaccination, he suffered severe injuries and was diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), idiopathic hypersomnia (IH), myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and gastroparesis . . .

Zambian President Dr. Nevers Mumba on Vaccines

January 14, 2021 — A true reflection of good leadership. Full story: youtube.com

Comment: A Certified Nursing Assistant recorded this video as a whistleblower . . . in 2020 very few residents in the nursing home where he works got sick with COVID, and none of them died during the entire yea. However, shortly after administering the Pfizer experimental mRNA injections, 14 died within two weeks, and he reports that many others are near death . . . these were patients he knew and cared for (he is also a "lay pastor"), after being injected with the mRNA shot, residents who used to walk on their own can no longer walk. Residents who used to carry on an intelligent conversation with him could no longer talk. And now they are dying. "They're dropping like flies."

His superiors are explaining the deaths as being caused by a COVID19 "super-spreader." However, the residents who refused to take the injections are not sick (healthimpactnews.com. Video minds.com, bitchute.com, rumble.com).

Most of Joe Biden's Twitter followers FAKE – created in January

January 25, 2021 — Big Tech and Team Biden are working feverishly to manipulate the public into believing the newly sworn in dictator is actually adored by millions. Twitter appears to be creating fake accounts to follow Biden and give his ostensibly dismal popularity a boost in yet another pitiful attempt to convince the world that the scandal-plagued Democrat won the presidential election by an unprecedented and unrealistic 81 million American votes.

Comment: Accurate or not, this sure fits with the narrative of events since November 3, 2020. The people just don't like the 'b' and probably did not vote for him as purported.



Beauty for Ashes – Part VI

Nicodemus, a Pharisee and instructor of the Law came secretly to Jesus by night and said, Rabbi, "We know you are a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles, except God be with him".

Jesus replied, "Truly I assure you, unless a man is born again he cannot understand the kingdom of God".

Nicodemus responded, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?"

Jesus answered, "Truly I assure you, "Unless a man is born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Don't be astonished at My assertion, "You must be born again." The Spirit breathes wherever it wills, and you hear His Voice but cannot tell whence it comes and whither it goes: so is every one that is born of the Spirit." (Breath and spirit are one word in both Hebrew and Greek).

Nicodemus answered, "How can these things be?"

Jesus answered, "As a teacher of the Law, how is it that you did not recognize or understand Ezekiel 36:24-27 which I just quoted?"

Jesus recognized Nicodemus as a believer in His Message, but without faith he was the Israelite equivalent of a foolish virgin. Jesus knew He would be "cut off" as Daniel foretold, and in Ezekiel 35:1 – 36:24 He spoke of the Edomites who were primarily physical Serpent's seed assimilated into Judah in 125BC by Judah's high priest John Hyrcanus I. Please read these chapters carefully to transform belief into faith so that you understand why "for fear of the Jews" Nicodemus visited secretly and Jesus dared not walk openly in Jerusalem.

In Ezekiel Jesus was speaking of Daniel's Seventieth Week: "I will take you from among the Gentiles, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own Land. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean: I will cleanse you from all your filthiness, and from all your idols. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh. And I will put My Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes, and shall keep My judgments, and do them".

Ezekiel 43 instructs Israel God's Word requires repentance, sanctification and a total separation from unbelief. John's vision of the New Jerusalem invokes Ezekiel's plan set in a large square with a high wall and gates to ensure "There shall in no wise enter into it anything that defiles, neither whatsoever works abomination, or makes a lie: but those which are elect and written in the Lamb's Book of Life." The fifteen hundred mile square by fifteen hundred mile high city New Jerusalem (as distinct from Christ and His wife who are named New Jerusalem) could not be built to specification by human hands, besides which it was two thousand years in construction from the Day of Pentecost to the opening of the Sealed Book on March 8, 1963 (Revelation 4:1 – 6:1). The holy City will come down from God out of heaven, prepared as a Bride adorned for her Husband" upon the renewed earth (Revelation 21:1-2).

May our Lord Jesus enable us to rightly divide His Word and feed our souls with a clear understanding of His mind as we resume our study.

Millennium Temple"To anoint the Most Holy . . ." (Daniel 9:24f). This will be the Tabernacle that'll be used during the Millennium . . . any reader knows that from Ezekiel chapter 40 until about chapter 44 is nothing in the world but the Millennium Temple being erected on earth . . . Ezekiel 43:1-6, "Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looked towards the east: and, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and the Voice was like the Voice of many waters [God's elect host (Revelation 17:15)]: and the earth shined with the glory. And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the visions that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the vision was like that which I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face. And the glory of the Lord came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is towards the east. So the Spirit took me up [as in Revelation 4:1] and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of the Lord filled the house. And I heard Him speak to me out of the house; and the Man stood by me" (Ezekiel 1:26; Exodus 33:23).

In "The Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's Visit to Daniel" (61-0630, par. 122 -129) Brother Branham read Leviticus 8:10-12 and II Chronicles 3:12-18 to show God never changes His ways (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8). "God came [as the Pillar of Cloud] into the sanctuary that was to be anointed and dedicated to Him for the people to come to worship. So in Daniel 9:24f "He will anoint not thy Holy Place, but "the Most Holy Place" . . . And we notice that New Jerusalem is the Most Holy Place, and the anointing will be upon the New Jerusalem that descends from God out of heaven, prepared as a Bride adorned for her Husband. The anointing will be upon them." We are the Temple of God!

"Now, when Zerubbabel dedicated his temple after it was rebuilt, it was not anointed again, because it was already been anointed, and been tore down, or it was just instructed again. The destruction had come to it. It had been instructed again and put up, so there was no [second] anointing of it [or of the Old Testament saints] any more. When it was one time anointed, that carried on through, and it goes on till this very time. But when God sets up the Millennium Tabernacle, He will anoint the Most Holy, not thy holy, but "the Most Holy." But when the King takes His throne for one thousand years . . . Glory She's over now. The anointing of the Most Holy will be the last thing take place."

In his Message "God in Simplicity" (63-0317m, par. 66-83) delivered prior to "The Revelation of the Seven Seals," Brother Branham explained that these tabernacles made with human hands were temporary. Stephen covered the same history in Acts 7:44-50, "The Most High dwells not in temples made with hands, as says the prophet, Heaven in My throne, and earth is My footstool: what kind of house will you build for Me? says the Lord: or what is the place of My rest? Has not My hand made all these things" (Isaiah 66:1-2)?

In Matthew 24:2 Jesus told His disciples there will come a time "when there shall not be left one stone here upon another, that shall not be thrown down." He tried to point them to another temple, one in which "He who overcomes, I will make a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the Name of My God, and the Name of the City of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down from My God, and My new Name" (Revelation 3:12; Hebrews 7:1-3).

"Jesus spoke of His body as being the temple. It was. It was the temple of God. But now we are His Body, the true Church is the temple of God by the Holy Ghost within us. Now He is going to make the overcomer a pillar in that temple (I John 5:4-5; Revelation 3:12). But what is a pillar? A pillar is actually a part of the foundation for it holds up the superstructure. Praise God, that puts the overcomer right in with the apostles and prophets, for it says in Ephesians 2:19-22, "Now therefore you are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone; in Whom all the building fitly framed together is growing into a holy temple in the Lord: in Whom you also are being built together for a dwelling of God in the Spirit".

When God puts a man in the temple as a pillar and makes him a part of that foundation group (Galatians 2:9) what is He doing? He is giving him the revelation of the Word and of Himself, because that is exactly what the apostles and prophets had. There he is in that Word. There he stands, no one can get him out" (Matthew 16:17-18; Galatians 4:30; An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 315:4).

"When the Tabernacle is erected, the resurrection has come, the Jews has returned, Christ and His Bride has come, the Jew, 144,000 elect Israelites are sealed, the Millennium has taken place, there will be an anointing when the most Holy Place will be anointed, the Holy, holiest of holies, and the most Holy, when . . . The "Most Holy Place" is a sanctuary where God lived between the Cherubims, and this time Christ will set in the most Holy Place with the anointing upon Him. And they'll need no sun there, for the Lamb in the midst of the City shall be the Light. The sun will never go down in that City, as old Uncle Jim used to say. And it never will, because Christ will be that Light, the anointed One. And the King will come and take His throne for one thousand years to reign."

Jeremiah 3:11-18 inclusive, let's read it . . . "And the Lord said to me, The backsliding Israel has justified herself more than treacherous Judah. Go and proclaim these words towards the north [i.e. Babylon, which was the head city of Medo-Persia and later Assyria, the chief city of Jewish scholarship until about AD1200], and say, Return, you backslidden [ten tribes of] Israel, says the Lord; and I will not cause My anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, says the Lord, and I will not keep anger forever. Only acknowledge your iniquity, that you have transgressed against the Lord your God, and have scattered your ways to the stranger (Heb.) 'Zuwr' [physical Serpent's seed] under every green tree, . . . (That's what they've done from east, west, every nation. See?) . . . and you have not obeyed My Voice, says the Lord."

[In the first instance the Lord calls upon the ten tribes of the northern kingdom in Daniel's Seventieth Week, that dwell in the now Muslim lands of the ancient Babylonian and Assyrian Empires, then to the whole people. But He who calls has the consciousness that He is no longer preaching to deaf ears. Jeremiah has the present Israel most at heart; his objective is to subordinate the past and future as he enters in detail on the present condition of things, and by brief and significant intimations concerning the past and future, make an impression on the hearts of his hearers].

"Turn, O backslidden children, says the Lord; for I am . . . (m-a-r-r-i-e-d) . . . I am married unto you: . . . ("Their eyes were blinded, because I give the Gentiles a chance, but you return for I am married unto you.") . . . and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, . . . (Not all that calls themself Jews Israelites will go in, but that elected group will go in, that little Benjamin that come up down there before Joseph, that group from out of every nation, one out of a city, and out of a family.) . . . and I will bring you to Zion: and I will give you pastors [the two witnesses of Zechariah 4; Matthew 24:31, and Revelation 11] according to your heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding." Brother Branham said "a pastor"—meaning Jesus Christ the Holy Spirit.

"And it shall come to pass, when you have multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, says the Lord, they shall say no more. The ark of the Covenant of the Lord: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall it be done any more." [The Ark was a type of Christ Who secured the Covenant]. What the Ark as God's throne had been to Jerusalem, Jerusalem is now to be to the nations, for in the millennium "the Kingdom will be restored to Jerusalem" and all Jerusalem is to be the throne of the Lord and through eternity in the renewed heavens and renewed earth.

"At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the Lord; . . . (As we'll be there. See?) . . . and all the nation shall . . . gather . . . (Hallelujah.) . . . unto it, and the Name of the Lord, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after their own imaginations in the evil of their . . . heart."

"In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers."
[This speaks of Judah participating in the prosperity promised to Israel].

Brother Branham said, "That's when that City will be anointed. That's when the New Jerusalem will be anointed. And all the nations of the City . . . Over in Revelations the 22nd chapter, it said the gates shall not be closed by night, 'cause there'll be no night there. And all the kings of the earth shall bring their honor and glory into this City. Its walls will be jasper and sardis stone, twelve manner of stones; and twelve gates shall be one solid pearl on each gate. There shall be no need of a candle in there. There won't be no more sunlight, for the Lamb that's in the midst of the City shall be the Light. And He shall lead His people into Everlasting Life. There will be two trees standing one on either side of the river, and they shall symbolize the fraternal healing of the nations. That's that anointed One that'll come, the Holy City descending from God out of heaven coming to the earth.

"Now, the sixfold purpose—and we find out that on this sixth purpose, "to anoint the most Holy," that "most Holy" always represented the Church, the Tabernacle. And the last thing to be done was to anoint the "most Holy;" that's the Millennial Tabernacle that He'll live in during the Millennial, that we'll live in" (61-0806, "The Seventieth Week of Daniel," par. 48). Through their loyalty and love for the Kingdom, the heart of our subjects is restored to Israel in the Millennium ruled by Jesus Christ and His Wife, the Christian Church.

In John 14:1-3, Jesus said, "Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house, (domain or kingdom in heaven – Matthew 6:9) are many dwelling places: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to Myself that where I am, there you may be also".

Body of ChristJesus went away for almost two thousand years to intercede for the Church Age saints ignorance on the fullness of the Word while the Bible was sealed. He received their understanding of "the present Truth" revealed by the Message of the angel to their dispensation and "winked" at their ignorance of the fullness that they might be born-again and baptized into their place in His Body, the Church. When the last saint predestined to the Laodicean Church Age (1906 – 1963) was baptized into the Body, Christ's Mediation in the office Son of God was fulfilled and redemption was over. Christ's end-time Bride does not require mediation because "the mystery of God" was finished by the Message of seventh angel, William Branham (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Revelation 10:7); by the grace of God we now have the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication. After we go Home two prophets will visit Israel and reveal the mystery of their Seven Trumpets. Like Christ's end-time Bride they were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary and will recognize their day and it's Message.

Christ was the go-between you and God; being foreknown and written in the Lamb's Book of Life which is the Spiritual genealogy of Jesus Christ you took your place in "His mystic Body, the Church." Isaiah 65:23 describes Christ's children as "the seed of the blessed of the Lord, and their offspring" those born-again by their witness. They have heard from their theophany or angel bearing the appearance of their glorified form.

"Unto [William Branham (1909-1965)], the angel of the Church of the Laodiceans (Revelation 1:1, 3:14) write; These things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning [and the Beginner and last Adam] of the [new] creation of God".

Jesus is giving us this description of Himself in relation to the last age. The days of grace are winding up. He has looked from the first century right through to the twentieth, and told us all things concerning these ages. Before He reveals the characteristics of the last age to us, He gives us one final look at His own gracious and supreme Deity. This is the capstone revelation of Himself.

Thus says the "AMEN." Jesus is the Amen of God. Jesus is the "So Let It Be" of God. Amen stands for finality. It stands for approval. It stands for prevailing promise. It stands for unchanging promise. It stands for the seal of God.

I want you to watch this carefully now and see something really sweet and beautiful. I said this is His end-time revelation of Himself. When the day of grace closes, then the millennium comes very shortly thereafter, doesn't it? Well, read Isaiah 65:16-19 with me.

"That he who blesses himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that swears in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from My eyes. For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered nor come into mind. But you be glad and rejoice forever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. And I will rejoice in Jerusalem and joy in My people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying."

This is about Christ's Bride New Jerusalem, not New Jerusalem the City. This is the millennium. But as we go into the millennium, hear what He says about being a certain kind of God, Verse 16, "That he who blesses himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth."

Yes, that is true, but the real translation is not "God of truth." It is "God of the AMEN." So we read it, "shall bless himself in the God of the AMEN, and he that swears in the earth shall swear by the God of the AMEN; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from My eyes. For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. But you be glad and rejoice forever in that which I create, for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in My people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her; nor the voice of crying," Hallelujah!

Here is Jehovah of the Old Testament, "the God of the Amen." Here is Jesus of the New Testament, "the God of the Amen."

"Hear, Oh Israel, the Lord Your God is ONE God." There it is again, the Jehovah of the Old Testament is the Jesus of the New. "Hear, Oh, Israel the Lord thy God is ONE God." The New Testament does not reveal ANOTHER God; it is a further revelation of the ONE AND SAME GOD. Christ did not come down to make Himself known. He did not come to reveal the Son. He came to reveal and make known the Father. He never talked about two Gods; He talked about ONE God. And now in this last age, we have come back to the capstone revelation, the most important revelation of Godhead in the whole Bible, that is, JESUS IS GOD, HE AND THE FATHER ARE ONE: THERE IS ONE GOD, AND HIS NAME IS THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.

He is the God of the Amen. He never changes. What He does never changes. He says it, and it stands fast. He does it, and it is done forever. None can take from what He says or add to it. So let it be. Amen. So let it be. Aren't you glad that you serve that kind of a God? You can know exactly where you are with Him at any time and all the time. He is the AMEN God and won't change" ("An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages," p. 332:1-333:1).

Christ spoke of the era which He inaugurated as "the regeneration" (Matthew 19:28) and His followers caught the truth that the outcome of the gospel age would be the realization of all those marvelous visions with which prophets had sustained the fainting hopes of the people of God. The hope was not to be forever receding as new height after height was surmounted. The characteristic word which runs throughout the description is the word "new." All things are to be renewed: the heavens and earth are to be renewed; Jerusalem is to be new. The words translated "new" in our English Bibles are (Gk.) 'neos' which relates to time or age, newer or younger, and (Gk.) 'kainos' which is the word used throughout the Book of Revelation. The newness pictured is the newness of freshness: the old, decaying, enfeebling, and corrupting elements are swept away. The aspects and features which will surround the inhabitants of that renewed earth will be full of novelty to satisfy the progressive instincts of our nature; but the imagery no less conveys the assurance that the conservative instinct, which finds sanctity in the past, will not be disregarded. All things may be new, full of fresh and fair beauty; but all things will not be strange and unfamiliar; there must be some correspondence between the old and the new.

After all the visions representing the state of the church and world to the consummation of all things, I beheld a perfectly new state of things; the heaven and earth in which we now live being changed, "the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, and there was no more sea. I saw Jerusalem, wholly new, belonging, not to this world, nor to the millennium, but to eternity—in the act of descending; from God out of heaven, prepared as a Bride adorned for her Husband—with all her charms set out to greatest advantage, and full of glory and splendour".

Atom bombIt is the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week: Rome has broken her covenant with world Jewry, 144,000 elect Israelites are born again and martyred, NATO has switched allegiance from the USA to Russia, and Vatican City State has been blasted from the face of the earth (Revelation 17:16 – 18:20, 24). "And after these things I heard a voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alelulia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: for true and righteous are Your judgments: for He has judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and has avenged the blood of His servants at her hand. And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up forever and ever. (That's the old prostitute church.) . . . her smoke rose up . . . And twenty-four elders and the four beasts living creatures fell down and worshipped God Who sat upon the throne, saying, Amen; Hallelujah."

His Wife"And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God all you His servants, and you that fear Him, both small and great. And I heard as it was the voice of a great multitude,
(Listen. Here you are, Church. After you went up in Revelation 3:22, here you come. See?) And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a mighty thundering, saying, Hallelujah: for the Lord God omnipotent reigns. (Hallelujah. Watch. The marriage of the Lamb comes now. Here She comes.) Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come [to pass], and His wife has made Herself ready. (Here She comes, both Bride and Bridegroom). ["She's already united, see, we go to the Wedding Supper, not to the marriage" (64-0816, "Proving His Word," par. 236)]. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of saints."

"And he [Brother Branham] told me [John who represented Christ's end-time Bride throughout the Book of Revelation], Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. And he [Brother Branham] said unto me. These are the true sayings of God. And I fell down at his feet to worship him. And he said to me, See you do it not: I am your fellowservant, [a prophet like yourself] and of your brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy."

"And I saw the heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that set thereon was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness does He judge and make war. His eyes was as flames of fire [the fierceness of His anger running to and fro in judgment against the enemies of His people, like "the sharp sword of the Word that procedes from His mouth"
(Daniel 10:6; Revelation 1:14; 2:18; 19:12; 63-1229M, There is a Man here that can Turn on the Light, par. 138-143)], and on His head were many crowns; (He was crowned what? King of kings.) and He had a Name written, that no man knowed, but himself" [because it is a personal revelation from Above] (Matthew 16:17; Revelation 2:17)].

"And He was clothed with white vesture dipped in blood: and His Name is called The Word of God ("In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God; and the Word was made flesh and dwelled among us." Who was It? Jesus) and His Name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. (Glory! Here He comes). And out of His mouth will go a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations; and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treads the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of Almighty God. And He had on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF KING, AND LORD OF LORDS. What was it? His people [Israel] had just crowned Him King of kings and Lord of lords coming back to His holy Temple, anointed with the Presence of God to live and to reign through the Millennium with His Church. Amen. The appearing with the mighty King to take Her place at His side, the new royal anointed Temple. Now, the sixfold purpose of Revelation 6:1 – 19:21 is fulfilled" (61-0739, "Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's Visit to Daniel," par. 120 -134).

The Apostolic understanding is that God's true Temple is the Body of Christ, the Church, New Jerusalem, in which we are members in particular with individual responsibilities, sovereign offices and unique gifts (I Corinthians 9:16-20; 12:27-31). In Revelation 21:22 Jesus states there will be no temple building in the New Jerusalem "for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the Temple of it" (Revelation 21:22). When an earthquake demolishes es Sakhra at the end of the Gentile dispensation apostate Jews and Israelites will build a third temple on the Mount of Olives; but it will be one more "abomination of desolation" (Matthew 24:15) like the Roman Legions of General Titus and the Dome of the Rock.

Ezekiel's map of Millennial IsraelConsidering the total area of the State of Israel is 22,145 sq.km (8,630 sq.m)—26,790 sq.km including Palestine—it is still less than half the area of Australia's smallest state (68,401 sq.km)—and this map of Ezekiel's vision shows that tribal boundaries occupy all available land. It would seem reasonable to ponder where many tens of millions of Old and New Testament saints might dwell, each building his own abode, working his own farm or occupation following the utter destruction occasioned by Earth's fiery cleansing, which will elevate Jerusalem and transform Judea into a plain (Zechariah 14:10-11). Would we return to vacant Edenic verdure? Our King would needs source specific abilities and order division of labour without hand tools, powered machinery or the "third pull." And as we have read from Isaiah 65:16-17, we each begin life afresh having no memory of our former life, skills or misadventures.

Brother Branham said, "The Millennial Tabernacle that He will live in during the Millennial, that we'll live in" (61-0806, "The Seventieth Week of Daniel," par. 48; Ezekiel 43:7). Literally it may be difficult to accommodate our 144,000 attendants, let alone "thousand thousands in one service, as the courtyard surrounding the tabernacle is only about 875 ft. (267 m) square. I can understand Christ and His Wife living in the 144,000, and in the hearts of the Old Testament saints, even as Jesus lives in us, His Bride of all ages in love by grace through faith (Luke 17:20-21; John 14:17-20).

There is much I don't understand however I feel that the purpose of Ezekiel's ground plan is instructive, like the orientation diagram one might consult in a shopping mall or university. Its purpose is to instruct Christ's Bride in protocol, her duties, authority and responsibilities; to instruct our 144,000 attendants on protocol and responsibilities; to constitute the administrative and judicial responsibilities of the twenty-four elders, especially over the kings of the earth and the nations of the "saved" who will dwell around the circumference of the renewed earth; and proclaim the administrative responsibilities of the Old Testament saints. The measuring motif occurs only in Ezekiel 40–48; Zechariah 1:16; 2:1–6 and Revelation 11:1-2. The measuring in Ezekiel 40–42 is already complete and serves to highlight the nature of sacred space. The measuring in Ezekiel 47 shows that the true restoration follows earth changes with the River of Life flowing from the millennial Temple. Ezekiel's holy city and temple are at Shechem, 99km (62m.) north of Jerusalem by road or 48km (30m.) as the crow flies.

These visions of a completed temple provided hope by the certainty of God's Presence with His people and the restoration of holiness and purity, the absence of which was described so pointedly earlier by Jeremiah and Ezekiel. These chapters explicitly mention the function of the boundaries, zones, and access to ensure holiness (Ezekiel 41:4; 42:13–14, 20; 43:12) and to inculcate shame in the people of Israel by reminding them of their past inability to maintain purity and holiness (Ezekiel 43:10). They constitute part of a thoroughgoing restructure of Israelite society throughout the millennium.

The stones of which Solomon's Temple was built were quarried from white limestone beneath Temple mount and the city of Jerusalem. Each stone was dressed off site according to the blueprint relative to its place and position to the other stones. "And the house, when it was in building, was built of stone made ready before it was brought thither: so that there was neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron heard in the house, while it was in building" (I Kings 6:7).

New Jerusalem, Christ's Church, is built of "lively stones" gathered from throughout the earth, dressed, finished then assembled at that meeting in the Air from the sounding of the Seventh Trumpet. We are Christ's Body, honed, polished and tested on earth, proven good work and true in the manifestation of the Sons of God. The iron tools of trials must chisel character while we are down here holding the Token of the Life of Christ on display, yet the work of building the true temple belongs to Christ ( I Corinthians 3:9; Ecclesiastes 3:14-15; Zechariah 6:12-13; I Peter 2:4-5; Ephesians 4:16). nl1140.htm
