Bible Believers' Newsletter 1186
"We focus on the present Truth — what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we believe you are having a wonderful time in God's Word.
Please spend time studying our main Article, "Sabbatical Years & our Pentecostal Jubilee Part IV," proving all things in your own Bible and carefully checking the dates and calculations to ensure that you understand how we arrive at the results. This is an important study, and the hour is late.
Our News items are very important because they tie together with our main Article to demonstrate the lateness of the hour, the apostasy of the churches and the unmitigated hardness of heart of our bought and paid for political representatives, government officials, senior executives from the Big End of town—"men of the world," self-seeking "global citizens" so-called rather than honourable patriotic men.
For years we have encouraged you to put aside three month's imperishable food because after the earthquake money will be worthless. The supply chain disruption internationally is causing manufacturers and distributors to shut down and lay off employees, and the supermarkets where I live have empty shelves: fresh food is no longer plentiful and prices are climbing up the wall. All of these elements, like the COVID hoax and fraud stem from meticulous long term planning by the usual suspect related physically and spiritually to the incarnate Serpent who beguiled Eve. We are beginning to taste the "enmity" God placed between his seed and the seed of the first and the last Adam. It will bring death, the great tribulation, and the consummation of Life.
Sanctify and keep the Token on display because the Lord has provided a way of escape for His elect.
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
Will the Fed Crash Global Financial Markets to Implement 'Great Reset'?
January 12, 2022 — The enormous inflation rise since the malicious political lockdowns and the trillions of dollars in emergency spending by both Trump and Biden, coupled with the continuation of the Fed's unprecedented near-zero interest rate policies and asset purchases of billions in bonds to keep the bubble inflated . . . set the stage for an imminent market collapse . . . deliberate and managed.
The decision to crash the financial system is being prepared amid the far-reaching global pandemic measures that have devastated the world economy since early 2020. It is coming as the NATO powers, led by the Biden Administration, are tipping the world into a potential World War by miscalculation.
The looming collapse of the dollar system, which will bring down most of the world owing to debt ties . . . as the major industrial nations go fully into economic self-destruction via their so-called Green New Deal in the EU, and USA and beyond. The ludicrous Zero Carbon policies to phase out coal, oil, gas and even nuclear have already brought the EU electric grid to the brink . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

Is the Tide Turning? Yea!
January 6, 2022 — You might be surprised to hear—or not—that many, if not all, of the most tyrannical leaders (sic), took Klaus Schwab's (WEF) intensive course for "Young Global Leaders." Among them are New Zealand's Ms. Ardern; The Australian Prime Minister Mr. Scott Morrison and several of Australian's Provincial Governors; Canada's Mr. Justin Trudeau; France's Mr. Emmanuel Macron, Costa Rica's President Carlos Alvarado Quesada; Madame Angela Merkel—and many more—[Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, Chelsea Clinton, Nicolas Sarkozy, Tony Blair, Jens Spahn, Philipp Rösler, Sebastian Kurz, Viktor Orbán, Jean-Claude Juncker, Annalena Baerbock, Gavin Newsom, Peter Buttigieg; people from Asia, Africa and South America number among the alumni]—just to give you a taste, so you may judge for yourself, who is at least part of the Big Orchestrators of this deadly game of never heard-of tyranny in recent history . . .
One might wonder, what will happen to all those world leaders, and to all those who have commandeered the world leaders to commit these unspeakable crimes? Are they preparing a spaceship—or have they already prepared one with a several thousand men/women capacity, to fly the murderers to a distant planet? Is this one of Elon Musk's secret plans? It may sound like fantasy, but perhaps it is not so far-fetched . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: As they flip through the propaganda videos Australians will notice our taxpayer-funded fifth column, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation prompts us Goyim "Think Bigger!"—a slogan of the Jewish upstart Sir Klaus Schwab's WEF. When I was ministering in Kakuma and other Refugee Camps organized by the United Nations—a Jewish criminal organization funded by nominally Christian nations. I observed that these camps are warehousing millions of dependent people in host nations, educating and grooming leaders to deploy an unstoppable force following the brief 'hot phase' of the ongoing World War III, then sent to tame countries like the UK, Canada, USA, EU, Australia and New Zealand governed by apostate "useful idiots" who have risen to the top in service to Lucifer.
According to the 1871 military blueprint for World Wars I, II, and III: "After World War III is ended, those who aspire to undisputed world domination will provoke the greatest social cataclysm the world has ever known." We quote from a letter catalogued in the British Museum Library.
"We shall unleash the Nihilists and Atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will be from that moment without compass, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view, a manifestation which will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time" (William Guy Carr, Pawns in the Game, p. xv-xvi). (biblebelievers.org.au. This strategy is corroborated by Dr. Dennis L. Cuddy PhD in The Power Elite's use of Wars and Crises). FDR said, "If something happens in politics you can bet it was planned that way".
The war that began in heaven is nearing its final battles on earth. Sanctify, only the 'third pull' can take you Home (Romans 8:19).
Pills Equipped with Sensors approved by FDA in 2017
January 9, 2022 — The FDA has authorized an Orwellian medical device that utilizes sensors implanted into tablets with a "digital ingestion tracking system" that employs "sensors" within pills to interact with a mobile device to document if and when the patient ingested the medicines.
"The system works by sending a message from the pill's sensor to a wearable patch that transmits the information to a mobile application so that patients can track the ingestion of the medication on their smart phone . . . or permit their caregivers and physician to access the information through a web-based portal . . ."
Those opposed to the existing COVID-19 vaccine regulations . . . will be concerned about whatever technology could aid in the continuation of medical dictatorship. According to Dr. Harvey Risch, an epidemiologist at Yale University, the COVID-19 pandemic was one of fear, manufactured by people in nominal positions of power as the virus spread around the world last year.
Melissa Ciummei, an Irish independent financial investor, believes that COVID Vaccine Passports will ultimately control your life right up to the point where a global social credit system is in place (youtube.com).
The leading doctor credited with improving early treatment of COVID-19 said in a conference that the goal of vaccine transmission campaigns is to "control and kill off a large proportion of our population without anyone suspecting that we were poisoned."
"The deaths that are meant to follow the vaccinations will never be able to be pinned on the poison. They will be too diverse, there will be too many, and they will be in too broad a timeframe for us to understand that we have been poisoned," claims Dr. Shankara Chetty. He could be called a second Zelenko. He is a medical doctor, a general practitioner in South Africa who has treated more than 7000 Covid patients successfully, without the need for extra oxygen or hospitalization. Through meticulous observation he was able to discern the nature of Covid-19 as a two-phase illness with a respiratory and an allergic phase, and to develop a treatment protocol which he describes in the first part of the interview. Plus a one-hour essentials edit of Chetty’s 1hr 50min testimony before the German Corona Inquiry Committee (session 82, Dec 10th, 2021). Get the full interview from their official channel.
Not many are aware that the Big Tech, Big Government, Big Pharma censorship of the truth about COVID-19 is actively coordinated by NATO's war propaganda arm, the Atlantic Council. This is how the Atlantic Council pulled over the COVID-19 Matrix on the world.

South African Physician, Dr. Chetty: the Plan is to Control and kill us off
November 5, 2021 — If people understand what the intention is then we understand why what's happened has happened. At any logic the poison, the oppression, is all warranted if you understand that there is a bigger plan. This plan is to make sure that we can control and kill off a large proportion of our population without anyone suspecting that they were poisoned, and so I think the justification for everything you see is warranted in understanding the end game. And so I think the justification for giving up our freedom we were told that gaol is the best place for us to feel secure. Now, today, if we have our freedoms back, they have a mandate to vaccinate and we'll be herded like cattle into a car . . . The vaccines make absolutely no sense . . . and if you look at the science, the science does not play out; the vaccine is absolutely nonsensical no matter how good or bad the vaccine is. I just want to make two points on the vaccination. Vaccines are meant to stimulate immunity, now clearly that has not occurred. The vaccines do not do that. Now they say that the vaccines have a benefit of preventing severe illness again . . . and that the public benefit does not come from immunity but it comes from the vaccine exposing you to fight 513 and building a measure of tolerance to an allergy, not to any immune mediated response to a virus, a virus is kept under, it's 513 that's the top danger. Secondly, the prevention of severe illness and death is an individual benefit if it actually does that, but so if you take the vaccine it prevents you from becoming severely . . . it has no true benefit and doesn't benefit you at all. So why am I forcing you to take the vaccine to benefit me? To put that into perspective for a layman . . . it is an individual benefit that does not influence anyone around me . . . Now they want me to say that because it benefits "humanity." Now that can't prove the science; they can't tell me how . . . Now, it looks like they want to push me off the pier . . . I see a few dead bodies lying around, and they tell me they're fast asleep. I don't believe that. Now if they send proof the population benefits from the vaccine, maybe I'll believe that . . .

Comment: The latest official health data from the British government shows that "fully vaccinated" individuals are not experiencing the robust protection against hospitalization or death that they were promised, but rather have alarmingly been contracting the virus, getting hospitalized, and even dying at a much higher number than the unvaccinated have been over the past few months.
As of December 5, the vaccinated have accounted for a whopping 4 of every 5 total Covid-19 deaths in England since August 16th, 2021, according to The UK Health Security Agency's Covid data.
Lousianan nurse: 'We have had more children die from the COVID Vaccine than of COVID itself. The Majority of our nurses, nurse managers, and some doctors do not even know what VAERS is. I've spoken to our chief medicine managers and other nurses on why we're not reporting to VAERS, and the most common response is: 'What is VAERS?'" She then said that none of the hospitals are reporting any data, meaning that even if someone was investigating, there would be no data to investigate. "We are potentially sacrificing our children for fear of maybe dying, getting sick of a virus with a 99% survival rate" (thecovidworld.com).
441 Athlete Cardiac Arrests, Serious Issues, 259 Dead after COVID Shot
January 6, 2022 — It is definitely not normal for so many mainly young athletes to suffer from cardiac arrests or to die while playing their sport, but this year it is happening. Many of these heart issues and deaths come shortly after they got a COVID vaccine. While it is possible this can happen to people who did not get a COVID vaccine, the sheer numbers clearly point to the only obvious cause.
The so-called health professionals running the COVID vaccine programs around the world keep repeating that "the COVID vaccine is a normal vaccine and it is safe and effective."
So in response to their pronouncement, here is a non-exhaustive and continuously growing list of mainly young athletes who had major medical issues in 2021/2022 after receiving one or more COVID vaccines . . . Full story: goodsciencing.com

Immune-Mediated Hepatitis with the Moderna Vaccine Confirmed
October 4, 2021 — As the cohort of vaccinated individuals against COVID-19 increases, the previously reported cases could not include a coincidental development of autoimmune hepatitis, which has an incidence of 3/100,000 population per year. Our case demonstrates conclusive evidence of vaccine-induced immune-mediated hepatitis with a rapid onset of liver injury after the first Moderna dose, which on re-exposure led to acute severe autoimmune hepatitis . . .

Amazingly, the most toxic Pfizer batches all possessed batch codes that formed a neat mathematical sequence—history shows that dangerous "hot lots" have existed for past vaccine products.

Col. Muammar Gaddafi, a Great Man
January 12, 2022 — The firebrands that put Europe to the flame were carried out by NATO assisted by bloodsucking rootless globalist corporations that suck the lifeblood out of Africa. By their actions, these Witchfinder Generals created crisis after crisis and in doing so unleash waves of refugee and asylum, even vengeful seekers over Europe.

Sabbatical Years & our Pentecostal Jubilee Part IV
Note: based on Ussher's chronology the Lord has revealed that 1977 was the age of accountability for Christ's end-time Bride when the revelation began to unfold and the end-time saints separated from Pentecostalism (I Corinthians 13:10-13). This revelation of the fullness of the Word "ushers in the Millennium." Israel's Seventieth Jubilee was 1987, not 1978; if you carefully study the words of Brother Branham I believe you will understand he spoke as he did to "thin down the crowd" or "get rid of the leaches" foreshadowed by Matthew 28:18-19/Acts 2:38-39. "The foolish virgins own the letter which killeth; whereas the wise virgins have the Spirit which giveth eternal Life" (II Corinthians 3:6; end note).
There is clearly a supernatural design in the Word and works of God. The first natural division of time is stamped by the number seven which signifies spiritual perfection, completion and rest. On the seventh division of time (Heb. 'yowm') God rested from His work of creation.
When God ordained a ritual for Israel that would show forth His work of Redemption He again stamped seven upon it in all of its times and seasons. The seventh day was the holy day; the seventh month was specially hallowed by the number of its sacred festivals which included Israel's Day of Atonement; every seventh year was the sabbatical year of rest for the land: while seven times seven years led to the year of Jubilee and deliverance on the fiftieth year that overlays Tishri 10 of the 49th year to Tishri 1 in the new week of seven sabbatical years as illustrated (Leviticus 25:4, 8). The year of Jubilee was announced on the Day of Atonement of the seventh sabbatical year of a forty nine year cycle and extended to Tishri 10 in the first year of the new forty-nine year cycle.
From Genesis 1 we learn that God (and Israel) reckon time from "the evening and the morning," that is, from sun down whereas we reckon time from midnight. In Exodus 12:2 God instructed Moses and Aaron, "This month (Abib, or Nisan), shall be the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you." Sometime between the Torah and the codification of the Mishnah early in the third century AD, the Hebrew New Year was moved from Abib to Tishri, contrary to the Law. The autumn New Year gained ascendance, transformed into a major celebration, leaving the Nisan New Year as a marker of the months and festivals in the calendar year.
For six thousand years man has laboured against sin; the overcomers will rest in the seventh millennium, a sabbath of 1,000 years of peace typed by Israel's Feast of Tabernacles. As "one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day" (II Peter 3:8) the millennium will seem to us as 360,000 days. It will be followed by the general resurrection, the White Throne Judgment and the "eighth day of the Feast" which represents eternity in the renewed heavens and renewed earth.
Thirty jubilees bring us from the Exodus to Jesus' baptism by John in AD26 who began proclaiming, "the kingdom of Heaven (redemption by new birth) is nigh" (Luke 17:21) at the opening of His public ministry (John 2:13). Reading Isaiah 61:1-2a, Jesus proclaimed "the acceptable year of the Lord" in a seven-fold prophecy, an undeniable offer of Jubilee which begins on Tishri 10 (Luke 4:18-21; Leviticus 25:8-12). This computes to the Gregorian date of Monday, September 27, AD27 according to astronomical computer calculation, six months after the first Passover of our Lord's earthly ministry (John 2:13). Josephus concurs (Josephus Complete Works, trans. by William Whiston, Appendix, Dissertation V., 55, 56). The beginning of the ministry of Jesus Christ seems to be firmly fixed by this data (Finegan, Handbook of Biblical Chronology, op. cit., p. 232).
At Christ's second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming the Prophet William Branham "proclaimed the day of vengeance of our God" and revealed the one way to escape the Great Tribulation that will manifest from the opening of the Sixth Seal (Isaiah 61:2b; 34:2, 8; 35:4; 63:4; Joel 2:31; Zechariah 14:1; Revelation 6:12-17; 11:15). The great symbolical divisions of Israel's history, or the times of God's dealings with the nation, are marked by the number seven; and if we confine ourselves to the duration of years rather than to a succession of years and chronological dates, with kairoV (kairos), season, a definitely limited portion of time in which to grasp 'opportunities' by making the right decisions, rather than cronoV (chronos), time, the course of time in general ("chronology"), we shall have no difficulty understanding that Brother Branham's references to 1977 direct us to the threefold PROCESS called the 'rapture' (I Thessalonians 4:13-17). "I still maintain this prediction after thirty years because, Jesus did NOT say no man could know the year, month or week in which His coming was to be completed (I Thessalonians 4:16-18; Revelation 11:15-19). I sincerely believe and maintain as a private student of the Word, along with Divine inspiration that 1977 ought to terminate the world systems and usher in the millennium (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:4).
God's dealings with His people have to do with actual duration of time rather than with specific dates; and we find that His dealings with Israel were measured out into four periods, each consisting of 490 (70 x 7) years. Thus:—
The first — from Abraham to the Exodus.
The second — from the Exodus to the Dedication of the Temple.
The third — from the Temple to Nehemiah's return.
The fourth — from Nehemiah to the Second Advent.
It is clear that these are periods of duration having regard only to Israel, and to God's immediate dealings with them. For in each one there is a period of time during which He was not immediately governing them, but in which His hand was removed, and His people were without visible tokens of His Presence with them (Number in Scripture).
1. From the birth of Abraham to the Exodus Years Total From the birth of Abraham to the Exodus was actually (Genesis 12:4, 16:3 and 21:5) * 505 But deducting the 15 years while Ishmael was Abram's seed, delaying the seed of promise – 15 Leaving the first 70 x 7 of years 490
* Abraham was 75 years old when the promise (Genesis 12:4) was made to him. The Law was given 430 years afterwards (Exodus 12:40; Galatians 3:17). But 430 and 75 make 505 years, or 15 years over the grand jubilee of 490 years. How are we to account for this gap of 15 years as forming part of the 505 years? The answer is that at Abraham's departure into Canaan he was 75 years of age, Ishmael was conceived 10 years after (Genesis 16:3), therefore Abraham was 85 years old at Ishmael's conception. But he was 100 years old when Isaac was born. It follows that there were 15 years (100 85 = 15) during which Ishmael was occupying and usurping the place of the "promised seed;" and 15 from 505 leaves 490. Here then we have the first of the seventy sevens of years, and the first "gap" of 15 years.
The table below illustrates how Brother Branham arrived at the same terminus calculated on Archbishop James Usher's Chronology in "The Annals of the World." However, these dates should be revised to the more correct chronology of Christian Gedge.
Brother Branham shows God dealt with the Abrahamites 1954 years from 1921BC to AD33 Date The birth of Abraham (Genesis 11:26), Terah 130. Abram was not the firstborn. 1996BC God's call and promise (Genesis 12:1-3), Abram 75, Terah died aged 205 (Genesis 11:32; 12:4). 205 – 75 = 130 so Haran and/or Nahor were Abram's elder brothers. God removed him from Ur to Canaan as he would never become the head of the family clan had he remained. Precedent Japheth firstborn, then Shem, then Ham (Genesis 9:24-26; 10:21; Luke 3:36) but like Abram, Shem has the blessing and the birthright; hence Messiah came through his line. However, Genesis 9:24-25 speaks of Ham as being the youngest son, 10:21 unmistakably says Japheth was the elder, leaving Shem as the middle son. Also Isaac and Ishmael (I Chronicles 1:28; Matthew 20:16) (Floyd Nolen Jones, Chronology of the Old Testament: A Return to the Basics). 1921BC 430 years "sojourning" from Abram's call and entry into Canaan to the Exodus and the Law (Genesis 12:3; Exodus 12:40-41; Galatians 3:16-17). The fraudulent Masoretic text in our English Old Testaments should read as the LXX and Samaritan Pentateuch which are supported by the Talmud and the New Testament: "And the sojourning of the children of Israel and of their fathers, which they sojourned in the land of Canaan AND in the land of Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. And it came to pass after the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day that all the hosts of the Lord came forth out from the land of Egypt by night." For the first 215 years they sojourned in Palestine and for the last 215 years in Egypt. From the call in Ur until the entrance into Canaan after the Egyptian bondage, Abraham and his seed (Isaac and his offspring) "sojourned" in tents and had no permanent habitation (Exodus 6:4; Hebrews 11:8-13) 1491BC Birth of Ishmael (Genesis 16:16), Abram 86 (Genesis 16:3, 16) 1910BC Birth of Isaac Abraham's "seed" (Genesis 21:5), Abraham 100 1896BC Isaac weaned at age 5, Ishmael cast out at 19 (Genesis 21:8-10; Galatians 4:29-30) 1891BC God's Covenant (Genesis 15:13-21; Acts 7:6) the beginning of 400 years "sojourning" of Abraham's seed of promise "in a land that is not theirs"; commencing from Isaac's weaning and acknowledgment as the rightful heir by the casting out of the son of the bondwoman (Genesis 21:8-10; Galatians 4:29-30) to the time of the Exodus. 1491BC Birth of Esau and Jacob (Genesis 25:26), Isaac 60 1836BC Jacob 130 when he entered Egypt (Genesis 47:9) 1706BC Exodus. (Moses was born in 1571BC = 80 years + 1491 Exodus) 1491BC Israel enters Canaan 1451BC Solomon began construction of the Temple 480 years after Exodus (I Kings 7:1) 1012BC Crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ AD33
2. From the Exodus to the foundation of the Temple, according to Acts 13:20: * Years Total In the Wilderness 40 Under the Judges 450 Saul 40 David 40 Solomon (I Kings 6:1, 37) 3 573 But from these we must deduct the Captivities under **** Cushan (Judges 3:8) 8 Eglon (Judges 3:14) 18 Jabin (Judges 4:3) 20 Midianites (Judges 6:1) 7 Philistines (Judges 13:1) ** 40 93 Leaving 480 To this we must add the years during which the Temple was in building, for the finishing of the house (I Kings 6:38) 7 And at least for the furnishing and ending of all the work (I Kings 7:13-51) *** 3 Making altogether the second 70 x 7 of years 490
* The actual number of years was 573, according to Acts 13:20. But I Kings 6:1 says: "It came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of Egypt . . . he began to build the house of the Lord." Therefore commentators immediately conclude that the Book is wrong. But the number is ordinal, not cardinal, and it does not say four hundred and eighty years, but "eightieth year." The four hundred and eightieth of the duration of God's dealings with His people, deducting the ninety-three years while He had "sold them" into the hands of others. Thus there is no discrepancy between I Kings 6:1 and Acts 13:20. In the Acts the actual number of years is stated in a cardinal number; while in Kings a certain reckoning is made in an ordinal number, and a certain year in the order of God's dealings with His people is named. And yet by some, the inspiration of Acts 13:20 is impugned, and various shifts are resorted to, to make it what man thinks to be correct.
** The 18 years of Judges 10:8 were part of the joint 40 years' oppression; on the one side Jordan by the Philistines, and on "the other side Jordan in the land of the Amorites" by the Ammonites.
*** For in I Kings 8:2 it was dedicated in the seventh month, though it was finished in the eighth month. Therefore it could not have been the same year; and it may well have required three years for the completion of all the interior work described in I Kings 7:13-51.
**** As these five "captivities" totaling 93 years do not include 215 years of "persecution" in Canaan, "bondage" in Egypt, Babylon or the "captivity" of the Northern Kingdom, the Pharisees who claimed, "We are Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man" (John 8:13, 33-44) were not Jacob's seed but Edomites—Serpent's Seed physical and spiritual.
3. From the Dedication of the Temple to Nehemiah's return in the 20th year of Artaxerxes Years Total From the dedication to Nehemiah's return (Nehemiah 2:1) 560 Deduct the 70 years' Captivity in Babylon (Jeremiah 25:11, 12; Daniel 9:2) 70 Leaving the third 70 x 7 years 490
4. From Nehemiah's return to "cutting off" of "Messiah the Prince" (Daniel 9:24-27) Years total The "Seven weeks" (7 x 7) 49 The "Threescore and two weeks" (62 x 7) 434 "After" this, Messiah was "cut off," then comes this present interval, now more than 1992 years, to be followed, when God again deals with His people Israel, by "one week" (3½ + 3½ years) * 7 Daniel's seventieth week will precede the millennium sabbath, general resurrection and judgment: then "time will be no more" (Isaiah 2:1-4; 11:1-9; 65: 17-35; 66:9-24; Jeremiah 3:12-17). 490
* This "one week" is future, since "Messiah was cut off" after the "threescore and two weeks," at the end of the second of three divisions. This cannot be the same event as that which is to take place "in the midst" of the third of these three divisions. This prophecy is so distinct it is impossible to introduce such confusion as violently taking an event declared to take place "after" the end of the second period and say it is the same event which is spoken of as taking place "in the midst" of the third. A system of interpretation which requires such violent and unwarranted treatment of God's Word stands self-condemned. No prince has yet "confirmed a covenant with Jewry" and in the "midst of the week caused the sacrifice and the oblation to cease." This "Prince" will be the Pope of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church in the days of Satan's incarnation (Daniel 7:8-11, 24-26; 11:31 12:7; Revelation 13:1-8, 15-18; 17:9-11; 19:20; 20:10).
The above tables account for three of four series of seventy by seven cycles of years; and of the fourth, from Nehemiah to the Second Advent, but one week of seven years remains. Daniel's Seventy Weeks of years are based on the Jubilee cycles that God commanded in Leviticus 25, and which, according to Leviticus 25:2, Joshua 4:19 and 5:9-12, commenced the count from Tishri 10, 1438BC.
The conquest of Canaan took about six and a half years (Joshua 1 – 12); six months from their entry into the land on Nisan 10 in which they ate of the produce planted by the Canaanites until Israel's Day of Atonement, Tishri 10, which initiated the sabbath of years, and seven years Tishri 10 to Tishri 10 in which they planted, cultivated and harvested their fields. On the sabbatical year (1396BC) they rested and ate the spontaneous produce of the land "And then the land had rest from war" (Joshua 14:15; 1:13-15; 21:44; 22:4; 23:1).
The tribes divided the land after seven years of war with its pagan inhabitants. They would have planted that fall; thus, the Jubilee and Sabbatical count would have begun the in the spring of the following year with the harvest of the first crops (Leviticus 25:3, "six years you shall . . . gather in the fruit thereof").
Israel is God's timepiece and we must study Daniel's Seventieth Week to discover when Rome will "confirm" a Covenant with many (Daniel 9:27). Brother Branham spoke of 1977 as the sum of a duration of seventy jubilee years, not the product of a succession of years and chronological dates which is why he said "I predict, I do not prophesy." He provided the clue but when the Seventieth Week will commence will be a revelation. Jubilees are a cycle of weeks of forty-nine years: prophetic years in the case of Daniel's Seventy Weeks.
The sacred mathematics behind all of these times and seasons that God gave Israel through His prophet Moses have been in existence from the foundation of the world and did not spring up at Mount Sinai for "the Word of God is forever settled in heaven" and being omniscient He can never change His ways (Psalm 119:89; Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8).
In the account of Noah's flood, a 360-day year is detected by the usage of a uniform 30-day month. For instance, from the start of the flood rains, until the ark rested on Mount Ararat there were an even "150 days" (30 x 5 months); and this is said to span from the "seventeenth day of the second month" until "the seventeenth day of the seventh month" (Genesis 7:11, 8:3-4). There are many other examples in the Books of Moses, although not as apparent.
The prophetic writings the Books of Ezekiel and Daniel strongly infer a 360-day year as does Esther 1:4. These three Books were written during or after the captivity in Babylon which observed a 354-day calendar like Israel. Again in the New Testament, we see the 360-day prophetic calendar unmistakably used in Revelation 11:2-3 and 12:6.
Brother Branham said, "in the Christian or prophetic calendar we find there's only 360 days in a year. Now, you might wonder how this confusion come about."
"Now, this I can only say as myself speaking. I believe that back before the antediluvian destruction, back in the days of Job and so forth, that they kept the time by the stars, and we understand—or back before that time that the world stood upright. And then in the sin of man, the overflow of the world, and it tilted and the floods came; therefore, we have the great ice glaciers and so forth; and all the top and bottom of the earth is full of ice, [it is not 'flat']. We know that. And the earth does not set straight up; it sets tilted . . . Now, you see, we using this same calendar right over here, because if God used this calendar here, then He's got to use it the rest of the time through the Bible. Is that right? God doesn't change (The Seventieth Week of Daniel, par. 65-66, 89).
God's Word and His mathematics are perfect and restitution must be made for any breach or deficiency. Had Israel been a people of faith their Jubilee cycle might have been Pentecostal. But it was delayed by forty years because of the year spent at Mount Sinai and the thirty-nine years wandering in the wilderness. This may have something to do with His 'apparent' delay for which we are all grateful however we know "He will not tarry" (Hebrews 10:37). As Brother Branham explained using Ussher's Chronology, God dealt with the Abrahamites for 1954 years from 1921BC until AD33 when Christ was crucified. "Now the seventy of weeks begins (now get this) after the Church is taken out" (William Branham, Gabriel's Instructions to Daniel, par. 70).
"A striking statement! From the time God made the promise to Abraham—(don't miss this)—from the time God made the promise to Abraham, Genesis 12:3, to the time of Christ being rejected in AD33, by the Jews, according to Galatians 3:16 and 17, and according to Ussher's (U-s-s-h-e-r-s) Usher's Chronology of the Hebrews, the power of God was with the Jews exactly 1954 years. [1921BC + 33AD = 1954]. God dealt with the Jews 1954 years according to the chronology of the Jews and according to Galatians 3:16 and 17. I got many more Scriptures, but just give that. Then after they rejected Christ, He turned to the Gentiles to take a people for His Name. You want a Scripture on that, the place? Acts 15:14."
[If "Levi paid tithes in Abraham" (Hebrews 7:9; Exodus 20:5-6; Deuteronomy 5:9-10) then Jacob/Israel, Judah and all thirteen patriarchs were in Abraham's loins].
"Now, counting the time, we find that we have exactly (Listen) seventeen years left, and we will have the same span of time given to us as God dealing with us in the power of the Holy Spirit since AD33 until 1977, the same span of time of 1954 years. God deals with us the same as He did with the Jews. See? [1977 – 33 = 1944 + 17 = 1961 as he was teaching]. How about that?" (61-0806M, The Seventieth Week of Daniel, par. 195-196).
Brother Branham quoted Archbishop Ussher's Chronology found in many reference Bibles, it dates the crucifixion in AD33. There is no year zero; thus the year AD1 immediately follows the year 1BC. Our understanding is that Jesus was born in 5BC, and that AD27 was "the acceptable year of the Lord" (Isaiah 61:1-2; Luke 4:17-19). This was Israel's thirtieth Jubilee (30 x 49 years); He was crucified on Nisan 14, AD30, closing the sixty-ninth of the seventy weeks of Daniel's prophecy and the Hebrew dispensation. The Temple was razed after forty years, a period of evident probation with a view to correction. We are thankful for the assistance of our friend, Brother Christian Gench, who has dedicated years of study to discover a more accurate chronology of the Bible. The sequence of sabbatical years hinges upon an exact starting point; this is more significant than people realize, but neglected for lack of a precise chronology.
The whole Bible is divisible by seven and I Kings 6:1 establishes the date of the Exodus. "In the 480th year after the children of Israel came out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of the LORD." Solomon's fourth year was 964BC; adding 480 years from I Kings 6:1 takes us to 1444BC and the Exodus whence sabbatical and Jubilee years start. 1444BC – 49 = sabbatical year 1396 "the year of release" (Deuteronomy 31:10-12; Judges 24:1, 25); 1395 was the first Jubilee.
Brother Branham said, "Now, mark down in your book a little Scripture here I want to give you. Leviticus 25, begin with the 8th verse. God calls a Jubilee every forty-ninth year; the fiftieth year was the Jubilee. We know that. We understand that. From the first Jubilee of Leviticus 25:8, in 1977 will be the seventieth Jubilee [for Israel, correctly 1987], making exactly (49 x 70 =) 3,430 years. Jubilee means the going up, or [sabbatical year of] release".
Oh, we're watching for the coming
Of that glad Millennium day,
When our blessed Lord shall come
And catch His waiting Bride away.
Oh, the world is groaning, crying
For that day of sweet release,
When our Saviour shall come back to earth again.
"Did you get that? God has dealt with us exactly the same amount of time that He dealt with the Jews from the time He give Abraham the promise until the rejecting of the Messiah in AD33, was 1954 years. And now, we have seventeen years left. We had about 1930 something years. We got seventeen years left until '77 will be the since the beginning of jubilees. [The Prophet was teaching in 1961 [1961 + 17 = 1978]. And what will it be? Oh, brother. Watch close now. Don't miss it. It'll be the Jubilee of the going up of the Gentile Bride and the return of Christ to the
JewsIsraelites, when they go out of bondage. Amen. Don't you see? From all the world they've gather there for that day. Oh, my. See where we're at? We don't know what time it might happen. We're at the end time" (The Seventy Weeks of Daniel, par. 195-198).
Chronology of the Seventy 360-Day Solar Calendar Jubilees
Exodus 12:40-42, "Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years, [215 years in Palestine and 215 years in Egypt]. And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt. It is a night to be much observed unto the LORD for bringing them out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of the LORD to be observed by all the children of Israel in their generations".
Deuteronomy 1:1-3, "These are the words which Moses spoke to all Israel in the wilderness west of the Jordan, in the plain over against the Red sea, between Paran, and Tophel, and Laban, and Hazeroth, and Dizahab. (Pointedly Moses stated: There is eleven days' journey from Horeb by the way of mount Seir unto Kadesh-barnea. But it has taken you forty years). And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month that Moses spoke to the children of Israel, according to all that the LORD had commanded him to give them." The children of Israel spent a further seven years conquering the land and dividing the tribal allotments.
Leviticus 25:2-12, "Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, when you come into the Land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath to the LORD. Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune you vineyard, and gather in the fruit; but the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest to the land, a sabbath for the LORD: you shall not sow your field, nor prune your vineyard. That which grows of its own accord of you shall not reap, neither gather the grapes of your unpruned vines: the land shall have a sabbatical year. And all of you shall have the sabbath products meat for you; for your male and female slaves, and for your hired servant, and for those who live as foreign residents with you. And for your cattle, and the animals that are in your land, shall the increase be food. And you shall count off seven sabbaths of years, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be forty-nine years. Then shall you sound the trumpet of the Jubilee abroad on the tenth day of the seventh month (Tishri), in the Day of Atonement you shall sound the trumpet throughout all your land. And you shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all the inhabitants: it shall be a Jubilee to you; and you shall return every man to his possession, and you shall return every man to his family. A Jubilee shall that fiftieth year be to you: you shall not sow; neither reap that which grows of itself, nor gather the grapes of your unpruned vine undressed. For it is the Jubilee; it shall be holy to you: you shall eat the increase thereof out of the field".
The first sabbatical year after the Exodus was 1396BC so the first Jubilee year was 1396/1395BC; forty-nine years after the children of Israel entered, conquered and settled Canaan in tribal allotments. The fiftieth/Jubilee year follows and overlays the last six months of the sabbatical year from Tishri 1, 1396BC to the new year from Nisan 1 1395BC to Tishri 1. Each Hebrew day commences at sunset the previous day so each day, month and year cross Gregorian days that begin at midnight. Every forty-nine years herald a Jubilee. In reading the diagram it is essential we bear in mind that Israel's Jubilees run from Tishri 10 to Tishri 10, that is, from September/October one Gregorian year to September/October the next Gregorian year because their years cross our years. Thus their year Tishri 10 (October 11), 1986 was a sabbatical year and Tishri 10, 1987 to Tishri 10 (October 11), 1987 began the actual Jubilee year.
The return of the Jubilee year was proclaimed by a blast of trumpets which sounded throughout the land. There is no record in Scripture of the actual observance of this festival, but there are numerous allusions which place it beyond a doubt that it was observed (Isaiah 5:7-10; 61:1, 2; Ezekiel 7:12-13; Nehemiah 5:1-19; II Chronicles 36:21).
1987 + 49 = 2036/2037 for Israel's seventy-first Jubilee. We will need to mentally adjust year's start from January 1 to March or April (Nisan 1), and see the Day of Atonement seven months beyond that in September or October (Tishri 10). Brother Branham said, "I sincerely believe and maintain as a private student of the Word, along with Divine inspiration that 1987 [in other words, Israel's Seventieth Jubilee] ought to terminate the world system and usher in the Millennium" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:4). Because Israel's Seventy-first Jubilee cannot be extended to a later date, and our Home-going must precede Israel's Seventy-first Jubilee, for the Lord cannot simultaneously deal with Israel under the Law and His Bride under grace: that would be confusion.
According to Chabad the Hebrew year 5782, September 7, 2021–September 26, 2022 is the Shmita or Sabbatical "year of release" prior to Israel's Jubilee, marked in red on the diagram above. Brother Branham told a parable in which a humble girl of character typing Christ's end-time Bride had one year make herself ready as a Word Bride with the Token on display ready to manifest She is a Daughter of God (Romans 8:19). He "heard Christ's Bride of all Ages as the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and mighty thunderings, saying, 'Alleluia: the Lord God omnipotent reigns. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb has come to pass, and His Wife has made Herself ready'."
"And it was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for fine linen signifies the righteous acts of saints. And Brother Branham said to Christ's end time Bride (represented by John the Revelator), Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the Marriage Supper of the Lamb [the Wedding is over]. And he said, my Message is THUS SAITH THE LORD!"
"As you know some fell at his feet to worship him. And Brother Branham said, See that you do it not: I am your fellowservant, and of your brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy" (Revelation 19:5-10).
The squeeze is tightening, the COVID psyop has crippled 'just in time' supply chains; fresh food is not on display, prices are surging. Already it is mid-January; soon "the fiftieth Day of Pentecost will come." After a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit our little hunted and persecuted group will go to be with Jesus before the bombs fall on America (59-0415A, God's Provided Way, par. E-47 – E-61; 60-1231, Revelation Chapter 4, Part I, par. 65-90; 63-033, The Sixth Seal, par. 67-103, etc).
The final forty-ninth or sabbatical year will be 2026 in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week: the final jubilee year will be Tishri 10, 2027. After the 144,000 are born-again and martyred the world will be heading toward Armageddon.
Daniel's Seventy Weeks of years must be converted from Gregorian to prophetic years 7 x 7 x 70 (Daniel 9:24-27):
49 Gregorian years of approximately x 365.2422 days = 17,896.8678 x 70 jubilees = 1,252,780.746 days
49 Prophetic years of 360 days x 49 years = 17,640 x 70 jubilees = 1,234,800 days
1,252,780.746 – 1,234,800 = 17,980.746 days ÷ 365.2422 days = 49.23 years or 1 Jubilee.
In other words, calculating in prophetic years the Seventieth Jubilee was 1977, and Israel's release, calculating in 365.2422 day years will be in 2026/2027, which will be the Seventy-first Jubilee in prophetic years.
In our previous lesson we mentioned that the first Passover meal initiated the seven days of Unleavened Bread: "It came to pass the self-same day, that the Lord brought the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies" (Exodus 12:29-51). In Exodus 13:1-10, Moses prophesied that on Nisan 15 (the following year, God intended that) Israel observe their second Passover meal and first day of Unleavened Bread on the border of the Promised Land. Deuteronomy 1:2 states: "It is eleven day's journey from Horeb by way of Mount Seir [Edom] to Kadesh-barnea [the boundary of Judah]." There the Israelites rejected the Holy Spirit and were blotted from the Book of Life: not for forty years would a new generation observe the feast of Passover in Canaan (Joshua 5:19 – 6:11).
Had Israel journeyed from Sinai to the border of the Promised Land in eleven days they would have crossed the Jordan to Jericho on Pentecost one-year after their arrival at Mount Sinai as God had intended. God intended Israel to cross over into the Promised Land on Pentecost morning, departing Mount Sinai on Iyyar 20 and arriving on Sivan 1, the anniversary of their arrival at Sinai the previous year. We know this because "eleven days" (Deuteronomy 1:2) is a precise number. This leads us to speculate three day's sanctification before the crossing (as in Exodus 19:14-16, and ultimately Joshua 3:1-5; 4:19) exactly one year after the Sinai Covenant.
Ours is a Pentecostal Jubilee, by grace through faith Christ's end-time Bride received our Day of Atonement as Attributes of the Word or Logos and accounted crucified in Christ on Calvary; (II Corinthians 5:13-21; Colossians 3:3-4).
The Prophet said, "When you begin to see the year of Jubilee, where we don't have to fuss and strain and pull like this, but we're already secured in Christ . . . What a beautiful story . . . I want to get these Seventy Weeks of Daniel and tie it right in here, and show it where it takes it to the Pentecostal Jubilee, and brings it right back with those Seven Seals to opened here just before we go, and show that it's at the end" (Revelation, Chapter Five, #II, p. 779:181-182, 216). nl1186.htm
