Bible Believers' Newsletter 1161
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are delighted to see you for fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
Without introducing the arguments of different proponents we have laid a little groundwork to demonstrate that there will be a physical Temple in the Land of Israel during the Millennium. It will not be the CKD construction the Temple Mount Terrorists have been preparing for many moons for the consummation of life will overtake their plans, and the earth and everything thereon will be cleansed by unquenchable fire. We have also set out to demonstrate that God's Word will be fulfilled. Six thousand years ago "God blessed our first parents and said, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth."
Aside from replenishing the earth we have not fulfilled our commission. But we will because He also said, "The Word that goes forth out of My mouth shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it".
According to the news this week, treachery, gross insanity and war are in the air. But so is global depopulation and the injectable seeds of genocide have been very profitably sown. You must read about this for yourself, and prove all things.
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.
Time to plan for a World with no 'United States'
July 16, 2021 — A game is afoot. Laws are being passed in state after state that disenfranchise eligible voters, tens of millions of them, not criminals or "illegal aliens" but working Americans who are now living under regional governments that have abandoned any system of justice or decency as much of America descends into fascism. There is a deeper game behind this, one easy to predict. A dismembered America will still have its nuclear weapons, its massive navy, and its bases around the world. With Trump gone, the US has become a less reliable resource for the cabal of "bankers" and extremist cults that have kept hidden behind the scenes for centuries.
They believe that they can still "have the milk" and kill and eat the cow at the same time. They may very well be right. They want their power back and America's few surviving institutions, the hand full of real leaders in the military, a military filled with cowards and mama's boys, a few honest judges and prosecutors, a few dozen legislators, won't be able to stop them. Billions in corporate cash, cartel cash, polluter cash, poured into Washington, poured into the Pentagon, has created a tinderbox that threatens the planet. The United States is still the world's largest economy, certainly the world's most powerful nation militarily and yet it is nearly a very real collapse. The problem originates from its federal system of government. The stage has been set for either states to leave 'the union' . . . for the nation to surrender entirely to organized crime rule . . .

Graphene meets RNA Technology, for Cancer Vaccines
July 15, 2021 — As soon as Operation Warp Speed was announced, I made it clear that one of the prime goals was: winning approval for experimental RNA technology . . . highly dangerous . . . massive inflammatory response was the issue: the body attacks itself. But RNA tech allows new vaccines to be developed faster, easier, and cheaper. Therefore, researchers could claim to discover new viruses at the drop of a hat (without authentic proof), and pharma companies could develop new vaccines (aka genetic RNA treatments) overnight. It became Bill Gates' and Tony Fauci's mission to drag an RNA COVID vaccine across the finish line to emergency-use approval, come hell or high water. They were determined to crack open the marketplace for a flood of RNA medical products . . . graphene trumpeted as the core of a whole new frontier in medicine . . . the acknowledged toxicity of graphene nanoparticles is underplayed; in particular, their tendency to cause lung infections . . .

Comment: Natural Covid infection provides lasting immunity that science shows cannot be conferred through "vaccination." Vaccines are the true virus—JUST SAY NO! Thousands are becoming seriously injured or dying from these injectable drugs, which are unsafe and entirely experimental. These drugs from the government are spreading more "variants" at "warp speed," which is making the plandemic worse.
There are only three (3) countries whose government officials refused to accept the COVID-19 vaccine from the WHO: President Pierre Nkurunziza in Burundi, President John Magufuli of Tanzania, and President Jovenel Moïse in Haiti declined the vax and are now dead. Many, many people have already died after getting this 'vaccine' and hundreds-of-thousands are severely injured, some permanently disabled, if the theory about using a vaccine to cull humanity is true, would the perpetrators hesitate to murder three Presidents?

Face Masks contain Graphene, a Poisonous Substance
July 14, 2021 — On April 2, 2021 Health Canada acknowledged the presence of graphene nano particles inside the Face Mask allegedly to protect our health as well as prevent the spread of the "deadly virus" . . . There is ample evidence regarding the health impacts of graphene. Who pressured Health Canada to lift the restriction on graphene? Why is graphene contained in face masks sold and distributed Worldwide? Who is calling the shots? Is there an unspoken agenda? Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: A federal COVID-19 vaccination strike force may soon be knocking on your door, especially if you live in a community with low vaccination rates. Will you let them in? More to the point, are you required to open the door? The Biden Administration has announced that it plans to send federal "surge response teams" on a "targeted community door-to-door outreach" to communities with low vaccination rates in order to promote the safety and accessibility of the COVID-19 vaccines.

Canadian Doctor: 62% of Patients Vaccinated for COVID have Permanent Heart Damage
July 14, 2021 — After Dr. Charles Hoffe had administered about 900 doses of the Moderna experimental mRNA COVID-19 injections, he sounded the alarm over the severe reactions, which included death, he was observing in his patients who chose to get the shot (he chose NOT to get it himself). As a result of sounding the alarm a gag order was issued against him by medical authorities in his community. He defied this gag order and was interviewed by Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson on her show where he sounded the alarm. See: Canadian Doctor Defies Gag Order and Tells the Public How the Moderna COVID Injections Killed and Permanently Disabled Indigenous People in His Community. His punishment for going public to warn others on the dangers of these experimental shots was that he was relieved from hospital duty and lost half of his income: Canadian Doctor Removed from Hospital Duty after Speaking out about COVID "Vaccine" Side Effects . . .

Comment: The Ministry of Truth: the Biden administration and allied groups, including the Democratic National Committee (DNC), are "planning to engage fact-checkers more aggressively and work with SMS [Short Message Service] carriers to dispel misinformation about vaccines sent over social media and text messages," according to a report today in Politico by White House correspondents Natasha Korecki and Eugene Daniels. The initiative is part of the administration's attempt to get more people vaccinated for COVID after failing to reach its goal of having 70% of American adults receive at least one vaccine dose by July 4 (childrenshealthdefense.org.
The Nuclear Race is Accelerating
July 13, 2021 — The US Army is in preparing a task force with "long range precision fire capabilities that can land anywhere, made up of hypersonic missiles, medium range missiles, precision attack missiles" and that "these systems are able to penetrate the area of "the anti-aircraft barrage" . . . "we plan to deploy one of these task forces in Europe and probably two in the Pacific".
In such a situation . . . Russia is accelerating the deployment of new intercontinental missiles, with nuclear warheads which, after their ballistic trajectory, hover for thousands of kilometers at hypersonic speed . . . China is building more than 100 new silos for nuclear-warheaded intercontinental ballistic missiles. The arms race is unfolding not so much in terms of quantity (number and power of nuclear warheads) as of quality (speed, penetration capacity and geographic deployment of nuclear vectors). The response, in the event of an attack or suspected of such an attack, is increasingly entrusted to artificial intelligence.
The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, adopted by the United Nations in 2017 and entered into force in 2021, has so far been signed by 86 states and ratified by 54. None of the 30 NATO member countries has it ratified, or even signed. In Europe only Austria, Ireland, Malta, San Marino and the Holy See have joined. None of the nine nuclear states—the United States, Russia, France, Britain, Israel, China, Pakistan, India, North Korea—has ratified, or even signed, it. Full story: voltairenet.org
Comment: China is already the World-leader in AI. This year, China announced Wu Dao 2.0—by far the most advanced AI system in the World—ever. China is also by far the World's leader in the production of AI research papers. The USA is number two, and India stands third. Patents are essential but a problematic measure because a lot of AI depends upon how you apply it. China will also be wary of disclosing all its tech secrets through patent filing. The USA has a law to secretly confiscate all foreign patents and give them to its own US military industry. At the same time as the USA secretly appropriates patents and Intellectual Property (IP), the USA shouts up about others "copying" and "spying" on the USA. The USA, through the Invention Secrecy Act of 1951 (Publ. L. 82-256) also prevents military relevant patents from being filed . . . According to the China AI Development Report, July 2018 (CAIDR), China is the global leader in AI investments, with 60% of total AI investments 2013-Q12018 (the USA less than 30%) . . . The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) was by 2018 the research institution with the World's highest concentration of AI talent, with 1,244 researchers. Number two was NASA with 103 (CAIDR fig. 2-35). No doubt, with quantum computing and AI, China is excellently positioned to become a World leader in using computing science, also for military purposes. And China reveals advanced conceptual thinking beyond what the USA can do by developing frontier-breaking new military concepts like "intelligentized" warfare.
Yalta II: Pentagon already ordered Weapons for Al-Qaeda
June 28, 2021 — The Pentagon has ordered $2.8 billion worth of weapons for its allies around the world. They mainly consist of military goods under Soviet or Russian license, enabling their delivery to fly under the radar. Half of these weapons are destined to stoke up the war against Syria. Perusing the US Federal Procurement Data System, Bulgarian journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva detected eight contracts for a total of $200 million earmarked for al-Qaeda in Syria (Hayat Tahrir al-Sham—Levant Liberation Organization). The contracting companies are TLG Worldwide, LLC, Multinational Defense Services LLC, Greystone CS3 LLC, Global Ordnance LLC, UDC USA, Inc., Culmen International, LLC, Blane International Group, Inc., Sierra Four Industries Corp. The contracts were signed between March and December 2020 for a period of five years. Full story: voltairenet.org
Comment: al-Qaeda was always a Pentagon agency and an agency of our ADF whose warships are equipped with the US Aegis system.
The Creation of 'White Supremacy' and the usual Suspect
October 20, 2020 — The term 'white supremacy,' so prevalent in recent news and political events has been decades in the making. Its origins lie in 1940s-era social scientific research targeting conservative American culture and values.
Psychological projection is a defense mechanism in which the ego defends itself against unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves and attributing them to others. For example, a bully may project his or her own feelings of vulnerability onto the target, or a person who is confused may project feelings of confusion and inadequacy onto other people. Projection incorporates blame shifting and can manifest as shame dumping. Projection has been described as an early phase of introjection (the process by which the subject replicates behaviors, attributes, or other fragments of the surrounding world, especially of other subjects).

The Millennium Temple
Last week we saw how Eve's unlawful relationship violated God's perfect will and since Eternal Life cannot abide with death man was expelled from the Garden and God's Presence. The Lord set enmity between Adam's race and that of Eve's bastard son Cain; birds and animals became carnivores and species of plants strove for mastery. After six thousand years labouring against sin, God's elect will enter the Millennium where personal fellowship with Christ the Tree of Life, enjoyed by our first parents in the seventh day (Genesis 2:3), our sin-interrupted first day in Eden will be restored as a sabbath of rest under a Covenant of Peace (Ezekiel 37:26). This seventh day will be man's first complete day of one thousand years (II Peter 3:8).
Ezekiel 37:26-28, "I will make a Covenant of Peace with them; it will be an everlasting Covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set My Sanctuary (Holy Pace) in the midst of them for evermore. My Tabernacle (dwelling place) also shall be with them: yes, I will be their God, and they shall be My people. And the nations shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in the midst of them for evermore".
Brother Branham explained, "Now David was not permitted to build the temple. He could not do it. But He said, "I'll raise up from your seed, and He will build the Temple, and that Temple will be an everlasting Temple. And upon your son, the Son of David, will be an everlasting Kingdom He will control" (II Samuel 7:12-17). Solomon, David's son in the natural (from his natural strength) built a house unto the Lord, a temple. But when the real Seed of David comes, the Son of David, He told them there would come a time that there wouldn't be one stone left upon the other of that temple, but He tried to point them to another Temple" (Isaiah 66:1-2; Acts 7:48; I Corinthians 6:19-20).
"John, the revelator, over in the Book of Revelation, he saw this Tabernacle (Revelations 21). He saw the New Temple coming, descending down from heaven, adorned as a Bride was adorned for her Husband, and a Voice out of the temple said, "Behold, the Tabernacle of God is with men, and God shall be with them, and they'll wipe all tears from their eyes. And there shall be no more hunger, nor no more sorrow, no more pain or death, for the former things have passed away" (Revelation 21:3).
"Then the true Son of David will then come to His Temple, the Temple of God—the real Tabernacle, which He has gone away to construct now (Hebrews 8:2). For He said in John 14, "In My Father's House are many mansions (dwelling places), and I will go . . ." (John 14:1-3). What did He mean by that? It was already foreordained, "And I'll go to prepare a place for you, and will return back to receive you unto Myself." And of course, we know that'll be in the great (millennial) age to come. And the true Seed of David will take the throne, which is Jesus Christ, and there will reign over the Church as His Bride, in the house with Him and over the twelve tribes of Israel throughout all eternity."
"And these little places . . . As David could not build the true tabernacle of God, because he wasn't prepared to do it . . . There was nothing he could do. He was a mortal and shed blood." [Besides, it would be built of the spoken Word and erected on earth in the Millennium; its construction commenced on the Day of Pentecost, and wants only the last "lively stones"].
"So is it today to us. We are not prepared to build the true Tabernacle of God. There's only One can do that, and it's being in its construction now. But this little tabernacle, along with the temple that Solomon built Him, and along with the others, are only temporary places of worship until the time comes when the real Tabernacle will be set up upon the earth, and righteousness shall reign from sky to sky, and there will be no more sorrow. There'll be no funerals preached in that Tabernacle. There'd be no more weddings, for the wedding will be one great wedding for eternity. What a time that will be."
"But let us purpose in our hearts today, that in commemoration and waiting for that Tabernacle to come, that we will so characterize ourselves by His Spirit that we will worship in this place as if we were in that other place, waiting for that place to come."
"Now, let us stand to our feet, and as I read the holy script."
"And I saw a new heavens and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth was passed away; and there were no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a Bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great Voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the Tabernacle of God is with men, and He shall dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God" (63-0317M, God Hiding Himself in Simplicity then Revealing Himself in the Same, par. 76 – 83; Revelation 21:1-3).
Man praises God for what He has done, and looks forward to what He will do, but he fails to recognize what God is doing now. II Peter 1:12 admonishes us "to be established in the present Truth" . . . what Jesus is doing now (I John 1:7).
In Isaiah 54 the Lord promised Israel an unlimited blessing of every good and pleasant thing, and told them to enlarge their dwellings to accommodate their people and their possessions. In Isaiah 55 the Lord summoned "he who is hungry or athirst to come and buy without money and without price" . . . not corporeal nourishment that does not satisfy and is earned by the sweat of the brow; but to feed their soul of the revealed Word from the Tree of Life. "Faith comes by hearing and understanding the revealed Word of God," and if one will sit still long enough he will enter into the Covenant.
The David who was to be the Mediator of this grace had first to be a martyr; hearing His testimony is the condition of partaking His grace. He glorifies His people in this way. By His testimony to the Truth He will also become the leader and commander of nations. But the great chief witness will avail Himself of Israel in order to deliver His testimony to the nations. The inward believing inclination to the Word of God is unrelated to the merit of works; it was to be God in elect Israelites announcing the glory of David's Kingdom by the foolishness of inspired preaching that would bring His testimony to the nations.
Isaiah 55:11-13, "The Word that goes forth out of My mouth shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it".
God entrusted Adam, and later his wife, with dominion over earth and the whole creation therein, the one restriction imposed was that they shun Lucifer, the Tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil (Genesis 2:16-17). Overcome by the lust of the eye and the lust of the flesh and the pride of life, Eve listened to Lucifer incarnate in the Serpent, she brought death and decay on us all and on earth itself. Subsequently Israel disbelieved God's unchanging Word, and since Calvary God has not dealt with that nation except in chastisement.
We are approaching the Millennium where Jesus Christ and His Wife, King and Queen, will rule the Kingdom restored to Israel assisted by our 144,000 Israelite attendants—each of us born a second time by the spoken Word as the first and Last Adam were conceived. We will rule Israel, God's Old Testament saints under the Law that "had a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, and can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect" (Hebrews 10:1). Throughout the Church Ages Israel refused PART-Word and Christ's mediation for ignorance of the fullness of the Spoken Word; today they bear the reproach of the Word.
"God's Word will not return to Him void;" Christ fulfilled the Law, but the Old Testament saints are bound to the letter and the Seventh Day that failed when Adam 'saved' Eve from the fire. This first full day of one thousand sinless years will be lived in the Millennium for God said "My Word shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it".
The Millennium is not grace but a time of instruction in righteousness wherein we will rule the nations with a rod of iron (Psalm 2:9; Revelation 2:27, 12:5, 15), the severest, most rigorous rule—the royal sceptre (Psalm 45:6; Hebrews 1:8). We have had grace through two thousand years of the Gentile dispensation during which one could accept or reject Christ. Every soul in the Millennium is redeemed but must be trained to bring all things subject to Christ.
Christ must rule till He has put all enemies under His feet. Satan will be bound a thousand years by the fact his subjects will be in the grave until the general resurrection. His only power is the authority sinners yield to him. He cannot harm us glorified saints. But after the thousand years are expired the sinners will be raised and he will deceive them again (Revelation 20:7-15; COD, 1094:150). The last enemy that shall be destroyed is Death, after the Millennium, the general resurrection and White Throne Judgment (Revelation 6:8; 20:7-15). During the Millennium we will be living under this old heaven on this old earth sanctified by fire as Noah returned to the old heaven and earth after its baptism had washed away past sins. "When Christ has put down all rule and all authority and power He will deliver up the Kingdom to God. And when all things have been subdued unto Him, then shall the Son also Himself be subject unto Him that put all things under Him, that God may be all in all" (I Corinthians 15:23-28).
This does not imply a difference between Jesus Messiah and God. God is not now thinking or even taking counsel with Himself; all of His thoughts He has always had; He will never have another thought and cannot change His mind since He is omniscient. "In the beginning was the Word (as God's eternal thoughts), and the Word was with God (as His eternal thoughts), and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God . . . And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us" (I John 1:1-2, 14). "And that spiritual Rock that followed Israel in the Wilderness was Christ" the One Person of God (I Corinthians 10:4).
Your Bible is the love story of God changing His form or unfolding Himself from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts to substance in the flesh of His glorified Family of God-men and God-women by the spoken Word which is the expression of His eternal thoughts. Jesus Christ is our pattern and example, the beginning of God creating Himself a part of Creation. Not the beginning of creation, which was the rivers and trees. Eve was not a separate creation apart from Adam but a continuation of Adam, as Christ's Bride was always in Him and is a continuation of His glorious self. So if you are elect you are an attribute of God and eternal with Him (Revelation 3:14; Colossians 1:15-18; John 1:1-3, 14).
After the Gentile dispensation God will anoint the two prophets of Zechariah 4:11-14, Matthew 24:31 and Revelation 11:1-12 to minister to Israel. One anointed with the Spirit that endued 'Moses' will bring the Law to the remembrance of 144,000 elect Israelites proving by fulfilled prophecy and history how the nation fell. The other, anointed with the Spirit that endued four previous 'Elijahs,' will trace Israel from God's promise to Abraham through their Patriarchs to Saul, David and the kings in the divided kingdoms, through the Gentile world empires to Messiah's first coming, and introduce His unseen second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming to Israel. He will unveil the mystery of their Seven Trumpet Judgments and the Seven Vials of the wrath of God poured out upon "the great whore" and her apostate (once) Protestant "harlot daughter churches" to distinguish them from the One True Church.
At the Beautiful Gate Peter explained, "Heaven must receive Jesus Messiah until the times of restitution of all things to their former state, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said to the fathers, the Lord God shall raise up a prophet for you like me from your brethren; you must heed whatsoever He says. Every soul that does not heed that Prophet will be utterly destroyed from among the people. Likewise all the prophets who have spoken from Samuel and his successors also announced these days. You are the children of the prophets, and of the Covenant which God made with your fathers, saying to Abraham, "And in your Seed shall all the kindreds of Adam's race be blessed. To you first God, having raised up His Servant, sent Him to bless you by turning away every one of you from your wicked ways" (Acts 3:17-26).
Isaiah 55, "My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord . . . My Word that goes forth out of My mouth: shall not return to Me void, but shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." Softly and tenderly the Old Testament saints will be "taught knowledge and made to understand doctrine—weaned from the milk and drawn from the breasts of shadows and types to the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Millennial instruction must commence on ground familiar to all of these saints and be supported by the Tanakh, "for precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line; here a little, and there a little . . . and this is the refreshing".
They will all understand Deuteronomy 16:2, 5-6, "You shall sacrifice the Passover unto the Lord your God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which the Lord shall choose to place His Name there . . . You may not sacrifice the Passover within any of the towns, which the Lord your God is giving you: but at the place which the Lord your God shall choose to place His Name in, there you shall sacrifice the Passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that you came forth out of Egypt."
They will all understand that under the Old Testament "the place which the Lord chose to place His Name" was under the blood of the Pascal lamb in the City of Jerusalem in the Land of the Covenant. The Old Testament saints, many of them six thousand years behind "the present Truth" may neither know nor understand that the Lord chose to place His Name in the true Pascal Lamb Jesus Messiah; thus Israel slaughtered the True Lamb so He turned from the tribes of Israel to anyone of Adam's race who would receive Him where ere they be.
When Brother Branham was granted to look beyond the curtain of time he met his Laodicean converts, other saints awaiting the first resurrection were gathered with their Church Ages. As God is unchanging I expect the resurrected Old Testament saints will be separated by their dispensation, requiring considerable instruction throughout the Millennium to acculturate them all to maturity in the unity of the faith. Instructions will not accompany pencil and slate; worldly experiences and memories will lie in the sea of God's forgetfulness. "They shall say no more, The Ark of the Covenant of the Lord: neither shall it come to mind . . . At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the Lord; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the Name of the Lord, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart. . . . And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, says the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more" (Jeremiah 3:16-17; 31:34; Hebrews 10:17).
It is reasonable to suggest that the elect Old and New Testament Israelites will have knowledge as to their true identity, particularly important individuals like Adam, Eve, Noah, Enoch, Abraham, Sarah, Miriam, Moses, Ruth, Elijah, David, Huldah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Mary and John the Baptist? Or the seven angels to the Church Ages, the great apostles and prophets and scores of millions of martyrs, wash women, captains, soldiers and slaves of the Cross. We cannot preach "best guess estimates" but we can say that Brother Branham saw and spoke with his departed wife, Sister Hope, their departed daughter Sharon Rose, even his dog "Fritz" and his horse "Prince." It will be attributes, "God in us," loving memories and friendships that endure; wives and children will know one another but their continuing relationship will be as close friends.
"Paul preached this Word, and wrote this Word, the same Word that we're trying to follow, because he took the Old Testament and patterned it, and showed that it was a type, that all of the Old Testament was a perfect type of the New. O Lord, may we follow that example."
"We see our Lord, what He did. And we realize that, those Old Testament saints, this morning, we find out that they did go. When Jesus raised they went with Him. And, Lord, we believe that we'll go when He sounds the Trumpet. We believe it, that the Bride will go forth at that Day and will join with the [Old Testament] Hebrew group of it, and, together, there'll be a Wedding Supper in Glory. Those are waiting" (63-0825M, How can I Overcome, par. 183-184). These Old Testament saints are the "friends of the Bridegroom" who will attend the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the Sky as they attended the marriage in the parable of the ten virgins (Matthew 25:1-14).
The Kingdom will be restored to united Israel in the Millennium and a new Temple will be erected as the central point of worship wherein the Lord dwells among His people. The sixth purpose of Gabriel's visit to Daniel was "to anoint the Most Holy Place" which Brother Branham identified as "the Tabernacle that will be used during the Millennium." And "the Temple that is to be built in the Millennium . . . being erected on earth" (61-0730E, The Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's Visit to Daniel, par. 118-120). "The Most Holy Place is the sanctuary where God lived between the cherubim. And this time Christ will set in the Most Holy Place with the anointing on Him." "At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the Lord; (as He will be there)." "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" (ibid, par. 125-127; 61-0806M, Seventieth Week of Daniel, par. 172).
Exodus 25:8-9, "The Lord told Moses, Speak to the children of Israel . . . And let them make Me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. Make it after the pattern of the tabernacle that I show you." I Kings 6:13, "And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will not forsake My people Israel" in the Land of the Covenant. I Kings 9:6-9, "But if you or your children turn away from following Me, and keep not My commandments and My statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them: then I will cut off Israel from the land; and this house which I have consecrated for My Name I will cast out of My sight. So Israel will become a proverb and a byword among all peoples. And this house will become a heap of ruins, everyone that passes will be astonished, and hiss and say, Why has the Lord done thus to this land, and to this house"?
With our focus on the Millennium—"that's when the city is to be built" (61-0730E, The Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's Visit to Daniel, par. 103). We see that King Jesus, His Wife and our 144,000 attendants will dwell in the Tabernacle and Temple, and the Old Testament saints will worship in the Temple portrayed in Isaiah 2:2-5. "It shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it (Isaiah 27:13; 56:7; 66:20). And many people shall go and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the House of the God of Jacob; and He will instruct us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the Word of the Lord as divine Absolute doctrine, and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem (Isaiah 51:4-5). And He will reprove many nations, and shall render decisions for many peoples (Isaiah 32:17-18): and they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruninghooks (Isaiah 9:5, 7; 11:6-9; Hosea 2:18; Zechariah 9:10): nation shall not lift up sword against nation; neither shall they learn war any more. O House of Jacob/Israel, come, and let us walk in the Light of the Lord" (Isaiah 60:1-2, 19-20; I John 1:5).
The Old Testament prophets foresaw and the saints expected the promised restoration of the Kingdom to Israel in the Millennium with a literal Temple in Jerusalem (Jeremiah 3:16–18; Ezekiel 37:15–28; 40 – 48; Daniel 9:24, 27; Micah 4:1–8; Zephaniah 3:8–11; Haggai 2:7–9; Zechariah 1:16–17; 6:12–15; 8:1–8; 14:9–10, 16–21). To "restore" is to return the Israelites to the Land of their Covenant and rebuild their Temple as God's dwelling place "after the pattern of the tabernacle that God showed Moses" (Exodus 25:8-9). Because of sin and as a legacy of the Fall these commands and promises to Israel could not be met before Calvary and Daniel's Seventieth Week are both fulfilled.
Isaiah 55:11-13, "the Word that goes forth out of My mouth shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." Ezekiel 36:24-27 promised Israel, "I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own Land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you" (justification by grace through faith). "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 give you a heart of flesh" (sanctification). "And I will put My Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you shall keep My judgments, and do them." The regeneration of 144,000 elect Israelites toward the end of Daniel's Seventieth Week when each will be martyred. The Temple described in Ezekiel 40 – 48 will be built and erected on earth in the Millennium.
God's Word is eternal, it can never fail. The first resurrection will commence three days after Los Angeles sinks, and continue to our translation "when the Day of Pentecost has fully come" again (II Thessalonians 2:2-7-12). By grace through faith and our "third pull" Christ's Wife will overcome ostracism, danger, illness, fear and insufficiency. Christ will commence His reign with the bema or judgment seat (Romans 14:10; II Corinthians 5:10) at the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the Sky where the veil will be removed and the work of every member of the Bride will be made manifest as She is commended by Her Lord and introduced to His friends, the Old Testament saints. "Behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be" (Revelation 22:12).
"We shall be face to face . . . then we shall know as we are known. Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abides which he has built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work is burned, he shall suffer loss: but he shall be saved; yet so as by fire. Don't you know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple you are . . . Therefore let no man glory in men. For ALL things are YOURS; Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; ALL are yours; and you are Christ's; and Christ is God's" (I Corinthians 3:12-23).
The righteousnesses of the saints are their righteous acts and works that will come out of the "fiery trial" of the Judgment of Reward, and be found to praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Christ. These make up the beautiful wedding garments in which the saints shall be clothed—their own works by the Token on display. Then we'll really be "written epistles, known and read of all men" (II Corinthians 3:2).
Brother Branham said, "Our thoughts speak louder in heaven than our voices do on earth." Our words and actions are our thoughts expressed. That's why Peter instructs us to be adorned in the Token or "hidden Man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, not the outward show of fancy hair-do's, gold, jewellery and fashionable clothes" (I Peter 3:3-5). Because we are Christ's jewels, and from the Bema Judgment we will outshine the stars of heaven.
What a contrast the spotless white and hue of the righteousnesses of saints will be to the purple and scarlet clad jewel-bedecked harlot wife of Satan. The Bride reflects the glory of her Husband. That's why "Jesus is presenting to Himself a glorious Church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing: but holy and without blemish" (Ephesians 5:27).
Revelation 19:9, "Brother Branham told John [who represents the members of Christ's end-time Bride] write, Blessed are they who are called unto the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. And he said, These are the true sayings of God".
After the first three and a half years of Daniel's Seventieth Week, that is in the midst of the Week after the Devil-incarnate Beast abrogates Rome's covenant with the Jewish international usurers (Daniel 9:27) and begins to force the Mark of the beast, Rome's Babylonian trinity doctrine (Revelation 13:15-18) Israel's two prophets will be assassinated. They will resurrect after three and a half days and ascend up to heaven in a Cloud (Revelation 11:3-13).
Jeremiah 30:3-10, "the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will restore the fortunes of My people Israel and Judah, says the Lord: I will bring them back to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it. These are the Words that the Lord spoke concerning Israel and concerning Judah. For thus says the Lord; We have heard a voice of terror, of fear, and not of peace. Ask now and see can a man travail with child? Why do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in childbirth, and why have all faces turned pale? Alas! For that day is great, there is none like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. For it shall come about in that day, says the Lord of hosts, that I will break Satan's yoke (the incarnate Beast of Papal Rome) from off their neck, and tear off their bonds, and (Heb.) 'zuwr,' strangers [physical Serpent's seed (Genesis 3:15)] shall no longer make them their slaves. But they shall serve the Lord their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up for them. Therefore fear not, O Jacob My servant, says the Lord; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for I will save you from afar, and your offspring from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and be quiet, and at ease, and none shall make him afraid".
Daniel 12:1-11 speaks of the second half of the Week which will be "the time of Jacob's trouble" when "Michael shall commence his reign" and after the regeneration of Israel, "thy people shall be delivered, all 144,000 of them." This will conclude the first resurrection (Psalm 2; Ezekiel 37:15-28; Zechariah 6:12-13; Revelation 20:4-6). After the Millennium the dead will rise for the White Throne Judgment, "some to everlasting Life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt" (61-0806M, The Seventieth Week of Daniel, par. 215-216; Revelation 20:12-13). nl1161.htm
