Bible Believers' Newsletter 1162
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ dear subscribers, readers and wonderful Christian colleagues; we appreciate your prayers and encouragement. I pray you find our main article edifying, and pleasing to our Lord Jesus Christ. The title, "Millennial Animal Sacrifices" is intriguing. We submit it in the belief the Lord will grant you a blessing.
Please do what you can to make yourself and your loved ones as financially secure as possible. It has been estimated that there could be an enlargement of deaths owing to the mRNA injections, taking perhaps 10% of global population over the next two to three years. Diligent readers who receive our weekly news with all readiness of mind will search the scriptures and authoritative sources daily—whether those things were so, and what is brain-washing propaganda. As F.D. Roosevelt once stated, "In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it does, you can bet it was planned that way." The Covid-19 hoax and fraud was planned and patented long ago to eliminate "useless eaters" as free medical, superannuation and other taxpayer-funded Ponzi schemes, having purchased votes, are now in deficit, causing the political class to ponder "will euthanasia eliminate the red ink?" After all, Big Pharma is absolved from liability. Any claims resulting from fraudulent inoculations which are not vaccines and more deadly than Covid-19, will fall upon taxpayers. Plan "B" might be to invoke war.
"The Pale horse is galloping through the world; the name of his rider is Death, and Hell follows with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth [Adam's race and all creation], to kill with sword, and with famine, and with death, and brutal, bestial men of the earth." The focus of today's news is almost exclusively Covid-19 related, exposing a multitude whose names have or will be removed from the Book of Life.
Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Noah, so also shall the (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming of the Son of man be" (Matthew 24:39). Aside from the besetting sin of miscegenation, "the earth is corrupt before God and full of violence, and every imagination of the thoughts of men's hearts is only evil continually." It is raining here, and the deluge is sinking Germany and Belgium, China, Oman, Austria, and Turkey.
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.
July 22, 2021 — So, Now You Are Vaccinated Against COVID-19. 40 trillion packages of mRNA have been injected that induce irreversible changes in your blood vessels . . . Now What?
Depending upon which source of information you believe, your life is in the balance if you make the wrong decision about COVID-19 vaccination.
A problem with what I write today is that the information below, which is essential to know to maintain health following COVID-19 vaccination, may induce more fear and anxiety, which is what is driving the pandemic and the misdirected decisions over COVID-19 vaccination . . . According to Our World Data as of July 20, 2021, 161 million Americans are fully vaccinated out of a population of ~328 million (49.1%).
It is difficult to understand why anyone would immunize, not with a vaccine, but a 5-times gain-of-function bioweapon, which is what the COVID-19 RNA/DNA vaccines are. But the news media is running a fright campaign that causes people to make health decisions out of fear.
Trillions of spike protein gene packages released
Immediately following vaccination trillions of gene packages will be released from the deltoid muscle where the vaccine needle entered your arm, and will end up wreaking havoc in your blood vessels.
Canadian cardiologist Dr. Charles Hoffe explains the blood clotting threat these vaccines pose: "The blood clots we hear about which the media claim are very rare are the big blood clots which are the ones that cause strokes and show up on CT scans, MRI, etc. The clots I’m talking about are microscopic and too small to find on any scan. They can thus only be detected using the D-dimer test" . . . Full story: lewrockwell.com

Lawsuit: Whistleblower says 45K dead from Covid-19 Faux-Vaccines
July 19, 2021 — Attorney Thomas Renz dropped a bombshell about a Whistleblower that has come forward alleging that the death rates that she has been monitoring on government websites are much much higher than what Vaers and the Media are telling people. In sworn testimony this Whistleblower is saying the accurate covid shot death number is 45,000 people. Full story: rumble.com Affidavit and Motion: renz-law.com.
Comment: Public Health Scotland published the results on their official COVID-19 statistical report page, where as of June 23, 2021 they report that 5,522 people have died within 28 days of receiving one of the COVID-19 injections in use within Scotland. Using the same percentages as the statistics supplied by Public Health Scotland, based on the population of the UK, they state that would equate to about 57,470 deaths in the UK within 28 days of being injected with the COVID-19 shot. For the population in the United States, that would equate to about 331,320 deaths within 28 days of receiving a COVID-19 injection.
Official sources, namely EudraVigilance (EU, EEA, Switzerland), MHRA (UK) and VAERS (USA), have now recorded more Injuries and Deaths from the ‘Covid’ vaccine roll-out than from all previous vaccines combined since records began.
EU/EEA/Switzerland to 17 July 2021—18,928 Covid-19 injection related deaths and over 1.8 million injuries, per EudraVigilance Database.
UK to 7 July 2021—1,470 Covid-19 injection related deaths and over 1 million injuries, per MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.
USA to 9 July 2021—10,991 Covid-19 injection related deaths and over 2 million injuries, per VAERS database.
TOTAL for EU/UK/USA—31,389 Covid-19 injection related deaths and almost 5 million injuries reported so far in July 2021 (globalresearch.ca).
Dr. Robert Malone, who pioneered the mRNA vaccine technology is concerned that the countries with the smallest percentage of their population vaccinated have the fewest number of new Covid cases. Countries with the largest percentages of population vaccinated have surging numbers of new Covid cases.
Dr. Malone shares his calculations Based on CDC/VAERS data:
The Pfizer vaccine is 3-5 times more likely to cause a male 12-17 years of age to be hospitalized than Covid itself. For a female of the same age, the vaccine is 4-5 times more likely to cause hospitalization than Covid.
Females 12-17 years of age are 72% more likely to die from the vaccine than from Covid.
Many have been asking for this. Pfizer adolescent Risk/benefit calculations based on official CDC data, forwarded to me by an actuary. Please prove these wrong? https://t.co/Ao8oZXeWGn

How Fanatics took over the World
June 10, 2021 — Early in the pandemic, I had been furiously writing articles about lockdowns. My phone rang with a call from a man named Dr. Rajeev Venkayya. He is the head of a vaccine company but introduced himself as former head of pandemic policy for the Gates Foundation.
Now I was listening.
I did not know it then, but I've since learned from Michael Lewis's (mostly terrible) book The Premonition that Venkayya was, in fact, the founding father of lockdowns. While working for George W. Bush's White House in 2005, he headed a bioterrorism study group. From his perch of influence—serving an apocalyptic president—he was the driving force for a dramatic change in US policy during pandemics . . .
There were three key elements: public fear, media and expert acquiescence, and the baked-in reality that school closures had been part of "pandemic planning" for the better part of 15 years. Essentially, the lockdowners, over the course of 15 years, had worn out the opposition. Lavish funding, attrition of wisdom within public health, and ideological fanaticism prevailed.

The Incredible Vanishing Flu
By Brian C. Joondeph, MD © 2020 all rights reserved via American Thinker
May 29, 2021 — Seasonal influenza, also known as "the flu," visits America every year, like tornados, thunderstorms, heat waves, and snowstorms. As tracked by the CDC, over the past decade symptomatic flu cases ranged from 9 to 45 million cases per year in the US. Hospitalizations varied from 140 to 810 thousand, and deaths from 12 to 61 thousand, depending on the particular year, strain of influenza, and effectiveness of the vaccine. This year, "flu activity is unusually low at this time" according to CDC surveillance. Since late September 2020, they recorded only about 2000 cases, a minute fraction of the tens of millions of cases in past years. Hospitalizations this flu season are minimal with only 224 confirmed influenza hospitalizations from September 2020 to mid-April 202, nowhere near the hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations in past seasons.
Deaths are harder to measure since the CDC conveniently changed how deaths are characterized this past year. Instead of pneumonia, influenza, and COVID being in separate categories, now it's called PIC, lumping the three entities together. For children, the CDC doesn't use PIC as COVID hospitalization or death in children is exceedingly rare, unless the child is immunocompromised. In each of the past three years, pediatric deaths ranged from 144 to 198 per year. This current flu season has seen only one single child die from the flu.
So what happened to the flu? From millions of cases to a few thousand. It would like having a winter with no snow, which despite predictions of NY Times climate experts, hasn't come close to happening. Perhaps flu cases are mysteriously lost, like Hillary Clinton's emails, Hunter Biden's laptop, or John Durham's sealed indictments.
A virologist was perplexed and honest. According to the New York Times, "We don't really have a clue," said Richard Webby, a virologist at the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis. "We're in uncharted territory. We haven't had an influenza season this low, I think as long as we've been measuring it. So what the potential implications are is a bit unclear." Other than an occasional news story like the one above, the media has been rather uninterested in this fluke of science, instead wringing their paws over an election audit in Arizona . . . As big media is too busy looking for racism hiding behind every Republican, let's explore why the 'flu might have mysteriously vanished.
One theory is that public health measures for COVID eradicated the flu. Did we just now discover hygiene? Was last year the first time that Americans washed their hands and used hand sanitizer? We have always done these things. And if they worked to stop the flu, why didn't they stop COVID?
We didn't need Dr Fauci scolding us into isolation when sick. Those ill with the flu stayed home until better. We naturally distanced when sick. Again, if these measures, far more draconian this year, stopped the flu, why didn't they also stop COVID?
Perhaps the flu vaccine last season was a home run, unlike the 40-60 percent effectiveness of past seasons, one year as low as 19 percent effective. In a normal flu season, the vaccination rate is between 50-60 percent. It was likely much lower last year during COVID as a flu shot was not a priority and many avoided going to the doctor unless necessary.
Maybe it was the incessant mask use, going from none to one to two to one, according to Dr Fauci's whims. If masks worked so well, why weren't we told to wear them every flu season, preventing tens of thousands of deaths and hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations? It is not like masks were just invented last year.
Does size matter? The influenza virus is 80-120 nanometers. COVID is similar in size, 50-140 nm. If, as we are incessantly told, masks work to save lives from COVID, then they should work similarly for influenza. Yet COVID cases are high and influenza cases are near zero. Why is that?
The pore size in standard surgical masks is 300 nm to 10,000 nm, far larger than either virus, meaning masks cannot explain the discrepancy. Masks don't stop either virus, which is why we never masked up during past flu pandemics. Unless the masks contain a pore bouncer, letting in only COVID but telling influenza to get lost.
In addition, if masks work, why the push for the vaccine? If the vaccine works, and it does far more effectively than the flu vaccine, why are we still masked up? It can't be both ways . . .
Perhaps COVID numbers are artificially high due to PCR cycle thresholds, as I have written about. At cycle threshold of 35-40, "up to 90 percent of people testing positive carried barely any virus" according to the NY Times, meaning most positives are false positives. Deliberately attributing accidental deaths to COVID falsely inflates the death counts.
What if influenza cases were incorrectly labeled as COVID? After all, everything now is called PIC. Perhaps the influenza numbers are much higher and COVID numbers much lower based on misclassification . . . Full story: americanthinker.com

Millennial Animal Sacrifices
Jesus has four Titles as Son in the Gospel. One of is "Son of David"; one is "Son of Abraham"; another is "Son of man" and another, "Son of God". . . He heired the throne by being a Son of David. God said back there that He would never leave David, "never leave David without a seed" . . . and waiting, getting a place ready to where He can reign with us (II Samuel 7:12-19).
As the Son of David He's Heir to the throne. As the Son of Abraham, He's Heir to the royal grant. Amen. That right? He's Heir to the royal grant (Amen!), Palestine and all that's in her, "Abraham's Seed." He was a Son of Abraham . . . as the Son of man He's the Heir to everything in the earth. All this He's got and He has to give it back to us, then He's returning back . . . as the Son of God He inherits all things . . . in Heaven and earth. Oh, my! That's our Redeemer, our Kinsman Redeemer" (61-0618, Revelation Chapter Five, Part II, par. 164-168).
The Davidic Covenant is unconditional, and his House and his Kingdom and His throne "shall be established forever." When the glorified Old Testament saints are reunited as one nation in the Land of their Covenant, the Millennium Temple where King Jesus, His Queen (Revelation 7:15-17; 21:3; Leviticus 26:11) and our 144,000 Israelite attendants dwell (Ezekiel 37:27), will be the center of worship.
These scriptures declare that the Millennium Temple will be more than a place of worship; it will literally be "the House of God . . . for My House shall be called a House of prayer for all people" of Adam's race (Isaiah 56:7). In the renewed heavens and renewed earth following the Millennium there will be "no more temple (Gk.) 'naos,' in new Jerusalem: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the nations of the saved non-elect shall walk in the Light of new Jerusalem, and the kings of the earth will tithe of their increase to the Royal City" (Revelation 21:22-27). Throughout eternity the "saved" non-elect will worship God in the form of His glorified Family, Jesus Christ and His Wife.
In 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"?
Ezekiel saw the Shekinah having the appearance of Jesus Christ in the office Son of man and Judge at the close of the Laodicean Church Age just before the opening of the Seven Seals in 1963 (Ezekiel 1:26-28; Isaiah 6:1; Daniel 7:9-10; 10:5-6; Revelation 1:13-15; 5:7; 10:1). Israel defiled God's holy temple with idolatry and abominations of pagan deities (Ezekiel 5:11; 8:5–18; 23:36–39). God showed Ezekiel the abominations done in the Temple and how it would be raised by the Legions of General Titus and treacherous Serpents seed Edomites (Ezekiel 9; Matthew 24:2, 3a). Then he was shown the departure of the Glory of the Lord by the east gate prior to the destruction of the Temple by Nebuchadnezzar, and the Shekinah has never returned to the temple. Likewise on February 28, 1963 God signified the departure of His Presence from the apostate Laodicean Pentecostals (Hebrews 13:8; Revelation 3:15-20).
Just before His crucifixion Jesus identified the Pharisees as physical Serpents seed—descendants of Edomites of Cain's race assimilated in 125BC by Israel's High priest John Hyrcanus I. "Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, you shall not see Me henceforth, till you shall say, Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord" (Matthew 23:33-39).
His glory will return and anoint the Most Holy Place, new Jerusalem—Jesus Messiah and His Queen—with the Joy of the Lord in the Millennium Temple (Daniel 9:24f; Ezekiel 1:26-28; 43:6-7, 12; 48:35). "Then I heard One speaking to me from the House, while a Man was standing beside me. And He said to me, Son of man, the place of My throne, and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel forever, and My holy Name, shall the house of Israel no more defile, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the carcasses of their kings in their high places . . . . This is the law of the House; upon the top of the mountain the whole limit thereof round about shall be Most Holy. Behold, this is the law of the House . . . and the Name of the city from that day shall be The Lord is Here".
In preaching "The Future Home of the Heavenly Bridegroom and the Earthly Bride" (64-0802, par. 401-403, 406-412) Brother Branham explained Ezekiel 48:35, "City with the Throne in top. Revelation 21:23, "And they need no light, for the Lamb and the Lord God is the Light thereof." See? The Lord God is that Pillar of Fire that followed the children of Israel through the wilderness. And He is ascended up on the Throne, in that perfect the Kingdom that Jesus is to surrender to the Father, that God might be all, and in all." Jesus sets upon His Throne here [on earth], as our Joseph. And the King is that Light that will be on top of Mount Zion, and His holy Light will flood the entire City. Hallelujah!"
"Fifteen hundred miles high, and fifteen hundred miles square, with the paradises of God built all through that City; streets, avenues! Read your Revelations 21, see if it isn't right. "They need no light there, for the Lamb is the Light." And on the Throne can be seen, setting, fifteen hundred mile."
"It don't run right straight up like this. It slants off, like the pyramid. If it would be half of the distance, then that would be about run up like this, you see . . . now if you'll notice, from one side of the City to the other one . . ."
Why is it God so thought and cared so much about that little place of Palestine, see, when it's just a little spot? But right in there is where the temple is set. That's where the New Jerusalem will break up, right there. "Olive, Mount of Olive shall cleave, part to the right and left," sure, when she pushes up from the beneath. Not, they say, it's pushing apart like this. It's pushing up, "In that day when He stands His holy feet upon the Mountain" (Isaiah 2:2-3; Daniel 12:1; Joel 3:2; Micah 4:1-3; Zechariah 14:4-5; 4:7; Acts 1:11). Notice, on His Throne, fifteen hundred miles high! . . . The New City has twelve foundations, as we went through, twelve patriarchs; hundred and forty-four cubits; being the breastplate of Aaron; twelve gates of pearl, twelve disciples' name. Jesus stand, the Headstone, on the Throne, when His saints has crowned Him, "the King of kings, Lord of lords." And He's the Headstone" (Revelation 5:8-14).
"I don't have my pocketbook with me. But if you'll notice in your pocketbook, if you have a one-dollar bill, they have the Seal of the United States; a eagle on one end, a-holding the spears, the coat of arms, as it were; and on the other end, it's got the pyramid, with a all-seeing eye on top of it. See, they didn't know what they were doing. And on there it's wrote in Latin, and you'll find out it says, this is the "Great Seal." They didn't know what they were doing. Neither did Caiaphas know he was prophesying" (John 11:47-54).
"[Brother Branham illustrates at the blackboard – Ed.] There is the Great Seal. Here it is, see, the City. It's not just a flat cube like this, see, but it leans up so it can be seen. And upon this holy Mountain of the Lord, the Lord shall descend upon top of His Mountain; here He is. That's the reason the capstone wasn't put on by Enoch. See? That's the reason the Capstone has to come now. And the Mountain will be pushed up, and it'll be the Mount of the Lord. And in here will dwell the Redeemed. These, avenues and big freeways, as it was, parks, and the River of Life will run right through it (Ezekiel 47:1-10)."
"And every house will be made of transparent gold. And the streets will be made of gold. And the trees of Life [His glorified elect, YOU and you too], will be there, and will bear twelve manners of fruit. And the kings and the honored man of the earth shall bring their honor and glory into the gates. (Yesterday, July 21, 2021, Jeff Bezos' first flight into space reached an altitude of 66 miles (106 Km)—just short of the Ephesian Church Age level of the 1,500 mile high new Jerusalem). "And the gates shall not be shut by night, because there is no night there" beneath the Shekinah Glory of the Lord God above the City 1,500 miles square, and 1,500 miles high.
"This is the City that Abraham was looking for. See? Being a prophet, he knowed that City was somewhere. The Bible said so. And he forsook the city he lived, and he went over; look where he went, exactly where it'll be. See? "He was looking for a City Whose builder and maker was God," see, being a prophet."
"Jesus has gone to prepare, with the Divine hands, a Divine City; Divine Architect, for a Divine-boughten people, for a predestinated people. He has gone to prepare . . . Why? He met Melchisedec, the King of it, and give Him a tithe" (ibid. par. 421-422).
This is vouchsafed by Ezekiel 37:26–28, "I will make a Covenant of Peace with Israel; it shall be an everlasting Covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set My Sanctuary in the midst of them forever. My dwelling place will also be with them, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. And the nations will know that I am the Lord who sanctifies Israel, when [future tense] My Sanctuary is in the midst of them forever".
These are future millennial promises. God's Sanctuary will not be erected until after the consummation of all life on earth, including the "nations" or heathen who will be in their graves until the general resurrection. Malachi 4:1-3, "Behold, that day is coming, burning as a furnace; and all the proud, (like the Americans and so forth) . . . yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: . . . (It's going to burn) . . . and the day that comes shall burn them up, says the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch" (63-0318, The First Seal, par. 226). "But unto you that fear My Name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in its beams; and you (Christ, His Wife, our 144,000 attendants and the Old Testament saints of God's servant nation) shall go forth (into the Millennium), and grow up as calves of the stall. And you shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be (nuclear) ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, says the Lord of hosts" (Matthew 3:11-12; II Peter 3:7-13).
Revelation 20:6-9, 13-15, "Blessed and holy is he that has part in the first resurrection: on such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. And when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be loosed out of his prison, and shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them . . . And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every one according to their deeds. And death and hell were cast into the lake of Fire. This is the second death. And anyone whose name was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of Fire".
I Corinthians 15:24-28, "Then comes the end when Jesus has put down all rule and all authority and power, for He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death, for He has put all things under His feet. But when He says all things are put under Him, it is manifest that He is excepted Who put all things under Him. And when all things shall be subdued unto Him, then shall the Son also Himself be subject unto Him Who put all things under Him that God may be all in all".
Revelation 21:1, 22, "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away and there was no more sea . . . And I saw no Temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb is its Temple." After the Millennium, earth and the whole cosmos will receive its baptism with fire and renewal for eternity.
After the resurrection of the Church Age saints and the translation of Christ's end-time Bride, Gog and Magog (Russia and her allies) will invade Israel in the latter part of the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week, leading to Armageddon (Ezekiel 38 – 39, Newsletter 1160).
These future millennial promises anticipate the detailed plans for the new Temple, its renewed orders of worship and tribal allotments with Dan and Ephraim restored to divine order (Ezekiel 48:1-8, 22-29).
Ezekiel's vision of Ezekiel 40:1 – 42:20 describe the architecture of the finished Temple; the divine guide carefully inspects and measures the dimensions of every porch, court, wall, window, gate, room and auxiliary building. In the inner court there were rooms at the sides of the inner gates with tables for inspecting the slaughtered animals and hooks for hanging the carcasses for sacrifice. After the divine guide measured all of the inner temple he brought Ezekiel out of the east gate to measure the external dimensions of the temple.
The detailed dates and measurements found throughout chapters 40-48 lend credibility to the fact Ezekiel saw a literal temple. He set forth detail after detail, making it increasingly difficult to interpret his vision as an allegory, in which case the abundance of minute details would be worthless and meaningless. In Ezekiel 40:4 Jesus instructed the prophet to pay close attention to the details of all the measurements He reveals for the purpose of the vision is that he would "declare all that he sees to the House of Israel".
Chapters 40-48 call the reader to understand a literal Temple throughout the Book: without those chapters there is no answer to Israel's destiny, no resolution to their history of sacred scandal, no grand finale to the divine drama from Sinai on the chosen Nation. Logically, the literary and prophetic progression of the Book would demand a verdict. As the desecration and destruction of the physical historical temple was proclaimed to Ezekiel in the vision of chapters 8-11, God is proclaiming the future blessing upon the nation of a physical Temple in the vision of chapters 40-48.
The apocalyptic nature of the passage reinforces the seriousness of God's punishment of the nation for their Covenant disobedience, resulting in the departure of God's glory from the temple. The vision of Ezekiel 40-48 is a magnificent promise that the Temple will be restored in the future as the crown and consummation of all Israel's history (Acts 3:17-26).
Considerable differences between Torah's and Ezekiel's sacrifices and regulations show that the Mosaic sacrificial system is not restored and can be harmonized with a New Covenant of peace. There is no high priest mentioned in Ezekiel since Christ "is a priest forever after the order of Melchisedec" (Psalm 110:4; Zechariah 6:12–13; Hebrews 7). The sons of Zadok will also be priests functioning in the sacrificial service (Ezekiel 43:19; 44:15–16). The Levites are no longer performing sacrificial functions in Ezekiel's temple but will oversee other areas of ministry (Ezekiel 44:10–17).
Ezekiel 43:13 – 46:24 describe the restored ordinances for priests, the portion of land for the Sanctuary and City, the ordinances for public worship and allotments for the twelve tribes. All of Israel's covenants will be fulfilled when the nation is restored to the Promised Land in the messianic kingdom: the Abrahamic Covenant, Mosaic Covenant, Davidic Covenant, New Covenant, and the Peace Covenant.
Ezekiel 45:18-20 appoints special offerings for the first and seventh days of Nisan. "On Nisan 1 you shall take a young bullock without blemish, and cleanse the sanctuary: the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering, and put it upon the posts of the house, and upon the four corners of the settle of the altar, and upon the posts of the gate of the inner court. So shall you do on Nisan 7 for every one that unintentionally errs from ignorance, or is naive: so shall you reconcile the house."
The animal sacrifices in Ezekiel 43:20, 26-27; 45:15, 17 and 20 will be for cleansing unintentional mistakes, errors or contamination with the world, dust, blood or ashes on the altar: reconciliation and atonement of what would offend the holiness of our Lord God. One who is "unclean" was disqualified from the Temple. The animal sacrifices during Christ's millennial reign solve the difficulty of ceremonial uncleanness, enabling a person who became impure to be restored to the Presence of the Lord. Just as before partaking the Lord's Supper and foot washing we must ask forgiveness from a Brother, Sister, or the Church for what we may have said or done. To honour God's Presence we present ourselves sanctified, with Bible, pen and paper, expecting Him to speak to us personally. God's insistence that He dwell among the Seed of Israel—Christians—is the foundation of the New Covenant promised through the prophets of the Old Covenant (Genesis 22:18; Galatians 3:29). Let us keep His dwelling place holy (I Corinthians 3:16-17).
Ezekiel 45:21-24 is the sole mention of Passover in Ezekiel. Its sacrifices differ from those of the Mosaic Law. Instead of one ram and seven lambs for the daily burnt offering, there are to be seven bullocks and seven rams and a kid of the goats daily for a sin offering, all which were typical of Christ, signified by the "bullock," for his labour and patience; the "ram," for his strength; and the kid of the goats, for his likeness of sinful flesh, and having the sins of his people reckoned to him; which made him of ill savour to the justice and holiness of God, and for which he fell a sacrifice. And whereas the feast of Tabernacles had its own offerings, which diminished as the days of the feast advanced, now the same are appointed as on the Passover.
The feast of the seventh month is the feast of Tabernacles, but that name is not mentioned, doubtless because the practice of living in booths has been dropped since Israel now occupies new Jerusalem. It was a celebration observed at the end of the harvest and prefigures the ingathering of the nations for the Millennium dispensation (Deuteronomy 16:13). The sacrifice is to be provided by the Prince, but offered by the priests. Ezekiel only mentions these two annual feasts of seven days in the first and seventh months; he omits Pentecost, the feast of Trumpets, and the Day of Atonement. Zechariah 14:16-21 mentions observance of the feast of Tabernacles, but not Passover.
What the sabbath day of rest is to the week, the seventh month is to the other six months of the seventh month cycle and typifies a period of rest—the sabbath rest of the millennial dispensation in relation to the other six thousand years of the world's work day history. The feast of Tabernacles began on the sabbath and continued seven days, it was to be followed by a sabbath (Leviticus 23:39). This eighth day sabbath points to the eternal state that will follow the millennium when the Lord creates a renewed heavens and a renewed earth.
Millennial sacrifices are not a restoration of the Mosaic Law and will not be memorial in nature; the animal sacrifices of Ezekiel 40-48 will literally be fulfilled in the Millennial Kingdom. They will be offered in the new Millennial Temple for outward purification in the Presence of our glorified Jesus Christ who resides over His theocratic kingdom under the New Covenant. Thus we must understand that Ezekiel 40-48 is literal.
Isaiah not only foresaw God's New Covenant with Israel, He saw "the Lord's House . . . and all the nations shall flow unto it" (Isaiah 2:2; 56:3; 66:20). Daniel 9:24, Joel 3:18, Micah 4:1-5 and Haggai 2:7, 9 all spoke of the Millennium Temple. Animal sacrifices will be offered on its brazen altar by Egyptian (Isaiah 19:21), Kedar and Nebaioth Arabic saints (Isaiah 60:7) and the Lord will choose some of them to be priests and Levites (Isaiah 66:21). Jeremiah saw the temporary Old Covenant replaced by the permanent New Covenant (Jeremiah 31:31-34; 32:38-40; 33:6-13; 50:5).
Brother Branham said "There'll be no death in the Millennium" (60-0515E, Adoption, Part I, par. 36). "The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain." We will all be glorified; there will be no marrying or giving in marriage and no children; we will all be in the prime of life, eternally immune from sickness, death or ageing (Isaiah 16:25; 65:25; Matthew 22:23-30). Following the general resurrection Satan will order his subjects to destroy us, but God will send down Fire from heaven and devour them (Revelation 20:7-10). So there will be no death in the Millennium, but there will be animal sacrifices.
Ezekiel 44:1-3, "Then Jesus brought me back the way of the gate of the outward sanctuary which looks toward the east; and it was shut. Then the Lord said to me: this gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the Lord, the God of Israel, has entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut. It is for the Prince; the Prince, He shall sit in it to eat bread [or partake the sacrificial meals reserved for priests] within this gate before the Lord; He shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate, and go out by the same way." This "Prince" (Heb.) 'nasiy' [captain or leader like Zerubbabel (Sheshbazzar) in Ezra 1:8] is David's Greater Son, Jesus Messiah, the Tree of Life. "Christ was at the east gate of the Garden of Eden, and there's where I think Cain and Abel made their sacrifice. And there's where the Cherubim with the flaming sword wouldn't let them come in any more, east of the gate" (53-0729, COD, par. 112; Ezekiel 34:23-24; 37:24-25).
Jesus said, "I am that Way. I am that Bread that comes from God out of Heaven. If a man eats this Bread, he'll live forever." Now there is a way back to that Tree of Life: it's an altar. Now, this must have been an altar at the Garden of Eden. I'll tell you why. Do you remember both Cain and Abel come up here to worship? So that shows that God's altar was moved and set here at the Garden of Eden, and the only way back to Eden is by the altar. Here YOU are again; see, back to Eden through the altar. And the cherubim were to keep that way there, guard it, that they couldn't get back there until this altar was covered with blood."
(O God, can't people see it?) "See, nothing but the Blood! There has to be an atonement, a mercy seat there, this altar of judgment must become a mercy seat; and when this altar, if the Blood is lifted, there will stand on that Judgment Day the Fire of God's wrath to guard that Tree again. Only one thing will enter into this gate to Eden again, will be through the Blood of Jesus Christ. You see it?" (61-0108, Revelation Chapter Four, Part III, 291-293; Ezekiel 10:18-19; 11:1, 21-24; 43:1-7; 47:1-10; Zechariah 4:7; 14:4; Matthew 16:27; Acts 1:11; 3:21; Revelation 7:2).
Throughout the Church Ages Christ was in the priestly office Son of God as Mediator interceding for the ignorance of His elect on the fullness of the Word so long as the Book was sealed. When the last saint predestined to the Pentecostal or Laodicean Church was born-again, Christ's mediation was fulfilled. Revelation 4 shows there is no more blood on altar: the Mercy Seat which is now a Judgment Seat because Redemption is over. From Revelation 5:1 - 6:1 the elders called for a kinsman Redeemer and the bleeding bloody Lamb advanced from the brazen altar as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. Taking the prophetic office Son of man. He claimed the Book and loosed the Seals as we crowned Him King of Kings and Judge.
I Corinthians 13:10, 12, "When that which is perfect is come, [the unsealed fullness of the Word], then PART Word and Christ's mediation for ignorance during the Church Ages shall be done away . . .
then we shallNOW we see face to face . . . then shallNOW I know even as also I am known".
On March 8, 1963, "John [who represents Christ's end-time Bride throughout the Book of Revelation] saw another mighty Angel come down from heaven (I Thessalonians 4:16), clothed with a Cloud: and the token of the rainbow, [God's Covenant with man and every living creature of all flesh (Genesis 8:20 – 9:17)] was upon His head, and His face was as it were the sun, and His feet as pillars of Fire: and He had in his hand a little Book open: and He set His right foot [in judgment] on [Papal Rome, the beast that rose up around the Mediterranean] the sea, and His left foot on the [apostate (once) Protestant United States of America, the image unto the Roman beast that rose up from the relatively unpopulated] earth. And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars: and when He had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices . . . But in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel [William Branham], when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He has declared to his servants the prophets" (Revelation 10:1-7). nl1162.htm
