Bible Believers' Newsletter 1188
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
Today's main article, "Sabbatical Years & our Pentecostal Jubilee Part VI," is a simple summary of matters we have discussed in this series. We have sought to identify absolutes that will lead us to the close of the Gentile dispensation, like a firm date that establishes the start and the close of the first 483 prophetic years that saw Christ crucified on Calvary. We have the dates and duration of the seven Church Ages which were fulfilled in 1963. Then we have many promises such as a prophet whose THUS SAITH THE LORD is Absolute (Amos 3:7; Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11; 25:6; Luke 18:8; II Timothy 3:1 – 4:4; Revelation 3:15-20; 10:1-7). William Branham prophesied the earthquake that almost sunk Alaska in 1964, "I told them how many days it would be, how it would be where this big earthquake happened in Alaska, and that would be the beginning of the sign of time, and what would take place. And just word by word, what It said, [earthquake striking West Coast]. It's never failed one time. You've never seen It fail. And It can't fail, because It's God's Words. "And Heaven and earth will pass away, but It can't fail" (65-1125, The Invisible Union of the Bride of Christ, par. 302).
We are waiting upon a soon-coming Good Friday earthquake that will mark the end of the Gentile dispensation. We have studied the Jubilees, and examined the political distress of nations our conclusion is that the hour is upon us. Please study carefully, proving all things in your own Bible.
Last week we once again introduced the film of the late John Perkins, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man and named many of the alumni of Sir Klaus Schawb's Global Young Leaders—prominent men and women trained to prosper the world government conspiracy of the City of London and Cecil Rhodes, a coterie or fifth column of political and business leaders groomed to fulfill Lucifer's boast that he could give Jesus "all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them" (Matthew 4:8). Perhaps the upstart Sir Klaus is a subscriber for some subscribers found that YouTube had removed the video, so we provide you with a fresh link.
This week's news reports on warfare being promoted by the declining City of London colony, post-Christian USA. And developments in the UN-WEF toxic "inoculation of diseases" global bankruptcy and depopulation program planned in the prescient Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion?
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.
Video: War Coming to Europe?
January 25, 2022 — The Washington and Brussels establishment are doing their utmost to unleash a war in Eastern Europe . . . conflict can be prevented only by the joint efforts of Russia and the largest European states, such as Germany and France. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: Australians are being told to get out of Ukraine now as propaganda of a Russian invasion grows (youtu.be). "Much ado about nothing"! Roman asymmetrical warfare will "mix" the strength of iron (Catholicism) with the miry clay of (apostate Protestantism)" to unite the ten toes of Nebuchadnezzar's image of Daniel 2 against Russia whose successful first strike invasion of mainland USA—forced in mid-year by this exceptionally belligerant rogue state—will see Rome fulfill Daniel 9:27, refinance the USD, restore peace and rule the world.
Washington refuses to hear Russia and China
January 18, 2022 — The Western press fails to follow the relationships between the Big Three (China, the United States and Russia) because it segments them. It considers each issue separately and ignores the links between them. Above all, it ignores the difference between Anglo-Saxon and UN law, which leads to many misinterpretations.
The United States reiterated its warning against the stationing of 100,000 Russian troops on the Russian-Ukrainian border, while Russia expressed indignation at the US refusal to discuss its peace proposal.
At the same time, the US Congress debated sanctions against Russia, while the State Department extended its attitude towards Russia to China, and the Department of Defense is considering increasing its nuclear arsenal . . . Full story: voltairenet.org
Comment: Washington and its NATO arm have rejected the Kremlin's joint security proposal, preferring dire consequences to peace. By rejecting the Kremlin's proposal, Washington and the Europeans have told the Kremlin that Washington intends to continue its aggressive policy of placing NATO and US missile bases on Russia's borders and arming Ukraine for attack on Donbass. The rejection also tells Moscow that Ukraine and Georgia, formerly constituent parts of Russia broken off during the period of Russian weakness following the collapse of the Soviet government, remain candidates for NATO Membership despite the Kremlin's statement that Russia will permit no such membership . . . the Kremlin has made it clear that the current security situation is unacceptable and that they are not going to continue living with insecurity (paulcraigroberts.org). According to a recent international Gallup poll, the United States is overwhelmingly considered the greatest threat to world peace, with Pakistan, China, North Korea, Israel and Iran (in that order) trailing distantly behind (globalresearch.ca). The US is starring in its own drama, with the lines between fantasy and reality increasingly blurred globalresearch.ca).
China: the 'Yellow Peril,' Really?
December 7, 2021 — The Chinese Silk Roads project is a global success. Despite all the criticism (corruption of local elites, indebtedness of partner countries, infringement of environmental rights), the countries participating in it are experiencing strong growth. How can we not be surprised that Western development aid programs have failed to achieve this since decolonisation?
And above all, how can we not be surprised that, after having praised the merits of international trade for decades, the West denounces this success? Relations between the West and China in the 21st century are not a succession of quid-pro-quo's, but of one-way misunderstandings. The US refuses to understand the Chinese way of thinking and keeps projecting its own shortcomings onto Beijing . . .
Beijing does not want to relive its deprivation by the unequal treaties that led to its occupation and plunder by eight foreign powers (Austria-Hungary, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States). It is therefore perfectly legitimate for it to arm itself to match what these powers have become. This does not mean that it intends to act like them, but that it intends to protect itself from them.

Comment: Last November the US banned UAE from hosting the Chinese navy, which is the most powerful in the world. "She built a naval base in Djibouti in 2017 to grapple (efficiently) with the threat of Somali pirates, and then signed a secret agreement in 2019 to establish a base in Cambodia. In addition, she set up civilian naval bases in Pakistan and Sri Lanka which could quickly be repurposed for military use. The UAE are home to a large US naval base and, in order to safeguard their independence, also host a French base (voltairenet.org).

Top German Professor on Fauci's Bombshell E-Mails: 'He bears Full Responsibility; he Should be held Liable'
January 24, 2022 — Recently FOIA'ed e-mails from February 2020 revealed that Anthony Fauci, Francis Collins, Peter Daszak, Jeremy Farrar and others involved in "Gain of Function" research at the Wuhan Lab conspired to quash any investigation into the true origins of the Covid-19 outbreak and their culpability.
Dr. Roland Wiesendanger of the University of Hamburg was one of the first scientists to publish on the possible lab leak in February 2021, and was defamed by mainstream media as a "conspiracy theorist" . . . he now demands a criminal investigation on suspicion of manslaughter in millions of cases . . . If we had known from the beginning that this is a completely new virus, artificially created—almost perfectly adapted to infect humans—and not comparable to any naturally occurring viruses, the whole discussion that COVID-19 is "like the flu" would not have arisen.
Flu viruses are of natural origin, whereas here we are dealing with an artificial virus type adapted to humans, optimized to dock to human ACE2 cell receptors and to enter human cells by means of the Furin cleavage site. If this had been clear from the beginning, we certainly could have avoided a lot of pointless discussions about whether the virus is dangerous or not. This is at the doorstep of all those who covered it up . . . by now, it's not just a matter of politics either. It's about the very real accusation of manslaughter in millions of cases, and then covering up those crimes . . . we are now talking about a new form of "scientific terrorism" . . .

Comment: Brother Branham: "Bible predicts that in the last days, that they'll be a germ warfare? That diseases will break out upon the people, and will fall on everyone without the baptism of the Holy Spirit? But the Angel who had charge over these plagues was given orders to touch no one on whom the mark was. Why, how much, kind of teachers have we got to be, brethren, to get the church in order to be in that condition? Immune" (54-0719A , God's Provided Way of Healing, par. E-42).
"Atomic bombs are laying in hangars, hydrogen bombs, sickness and diseases, germ warfare . . . O God, and everything the way it is, knowing that the Bible said that man would actually rot in their flesh . . . But that Angel was given commission, "Don't you touch any of those! Don't you come near those who has the wine and the oil. Don't touch those who has the seal of God upon their forehead."
And we realize that the baptism of the Holy Ghost is the seal of God. For it is written in Ephesians 4:30 "Grieve not the holy Spirit of God whereby you're sealed until the day of your redemption." (60-0709 God's Provided Way of Approach to Fellowship, par. E-101).
Doctors find Link between Covid Vaccine and Cancer
January 25, 2022 — A group of doctors and other medical experts gathered in Washington, D.C. on Monday for a panel discussion on Covid-19 hosted by Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI). The specialists include Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. Bret Weinstein, Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, Dr. Ryan Cole, Dr. Harvey Risch, Dr. George Fareed, Dr. Pierre Kory, Dr. Richard Urso, Dr. Paul Marik, Dr. Aaron Kheriaty and Dr. David Wiseman.

Thailand Govt. pays Compensation for Covid-19 Vaccine 'Side Effects' & Deaths, sets Legal Precedent
December 28, 2021 — The Royal Thai Government (member state of the UN and the WHO) firmly acknowledges the deaths and adverse events affecting Thais who have taken the vaccine jab. "Of the 11,707 people who filed a claim with the authorities, 8,470 people, or 72.3% of all claimants, have been compensated." 1,962 individuals, namely 23% of those compensated "were left permanently paralyzed or died after receiving their Covid-19 shot".
People in Thailand and around the World will be informed of the decision of the Thai government and will refuse to take the jab. And this decision establishes a legal precedent. It sets the stage for compensation Worldwide on behalf of the victims of the vaccine. Class action law suits as well criminal charges against Big Pharma and corrupt governments are forthcoming. National governments will no longer be able to deny the devastating impacts of what is widely recognized by scientists and medical doctors as a killer vaccine. Nor will they be able to impose a vaccine passport.

Comment: There is evidence that Pfizer is routinely involved in bribing numerous politicians at the highest levels of government. In turn, draconian governmental measures are being applied which consist in instructing people to take the mRNA vaccine, despite ample evidence . . . These shots are NOT vaccines. They are not meant to protect you against the virus . . . (globalresearch.ca).
Sabbatical Years & our Pentecostal Jubilee Part VI
Following last week's the fresh understanding, correction and revelation of Brother Branham's Message as disclosed in Newsletter 1187 I have made minor revisions to previous Newsletters in this series incorporating an explanatory note.
The Lord has confirmed that Christ's end-time Bride reached the age of accountability in 1977 as the revelation of His end-time Message delivered from 1963-1965 began to dawn upon His end-time elect. This produced a separation from Pentecostalism which rejected His unseen second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming in W_O_R_D form (Revelation 3:15-20) through the lips of His Prophet as he delivered the Revelation of the Seven Seals in March, 1963. His Message was "the midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6, "behold the Bridegroom; come out to meet Him." As prophesied in I Thessalonians 4:14, "The Lord Himself had already descended to the sixth dimension bringing with Him the theophanies of the Church Age saints which sleep".
"When Christ had opened the Seventh Seal" He came from Heaven with ten thousands times ten thousands of His Saints, and the Bible says "the Heavens was empty for the space of a half hour." Where is this big fellow, God, then? He's in Christ, the supreme deity (Revelation 8:1; 10:1-7).
I Thessalonians 4:13-16a, "I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who are asleep, that you sorrow not, as do those who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the Word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain to the (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming of the Lord shall not precede them who are asleep. For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout." The "shout" was Brother Branham's Message, a "bidding" akin to the command of a military officer introducing the Presence of our heavenly Bridegroom to His earthly Bride. This unseen Coming is a revelation.
"The Voice of the Archangel" is Christ in the heart of His end-time Bride whispering His secrets to place the Message in scripture from Genesis to Revelation bringing us to maturity in the unity of the faith to manifest that we are the Sons of God (I Corinthians 13:10-13; Ephesians 3:13; Romans 8:19; I Thessalonians 16:4b; Revelation 18:1-4).
Paul taught the "translation" as a threefold PROCESS of the "shout, the Voice of the Archangel, and the Trump of God."
The Trump of God will be Israel's Seventh Trump calling the dispersed tribes to the Land of their Covenant for redemption (Isaiah 11:11 – 12:6). It will terminate man's day and the Gentile dispensation and begin the Day of the Lord (Malachi 4:5). The Sixth Seal and Seventh Vial will manifest with an earthquake of unprecedented magnitude since man was on earth, sinking Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300 – 400 mile segment of earth's crust, cleaving Israel's Mount of Olives (Revelation 6:12; 16:18-19; 18:21-23), The resurrection and glorification of the Church Age saints and the translation of Christ's end-time Bride will follow unbeknownst to the world. After fifty days Russia will invade mainland USA; Brother Branham said "The Pentagon would surrender; the nation would surrender . . . all because we have failed to see this handwriting on the wall, and the [second or 'parousia'] Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ" (58-0618, Handwriting on the Wall, par. E-53).
This is closer than you dare imagine.
Daniel 7:9-12,"I beheld until the empty thrones [cushions] were cast down, and the Ancient of days sat; his garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head like pure wool: His throne was like the fiery furnace, its wheels as burning fire. A river of fire came from before Him: thousands upon thousands ministered to Him [Christ's Bride of all Ages who will be with Him in His Throne which is in us "the saints shall judge the world"] (John 5:22-24; I Corinthians 6:2), "and tens of thousands times ten thousands [the non-elect whose names remained in the Book of Life and will be granted into eternal Life at the White Throne stood before Him (John 5:28-29; Revelation 20:11-15)]: the Judgment was set, and the books [of sinners] were opened".
"I watched because of the voice of the great words which the horn spoke. [This Devil-incarnate last pope did not have a crown but a crown was given to him (Revelation 6:2) and Rome became a church kingdom]. I saw [the vision] until the beast was slain and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame (Revelation 17:7 – 18:20, 24; 19:20; 20:10). As concerning the [preceding] beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time" until the general resurrection after the Millennium.
Five hundred years before the time of Christ Daniel saw the thrones for the White Throne judgment but they were empty, and the Ancient of days came down from Heaven. But 2,500 years later when John, who represent's Christ's end-time Bride, saw the same vision of Judgment that will come after the Millennium. Jesus was seated, and the thrones for the disciples and redeemed patriarchs were occupied. We are looking for the close of the Gentile dispensation, the day of the Lord and our translation.

Brother Branham said, "I sincerely believe as a private student of the Word, along with Divine inspiration that 1977 ought to terminate the world systems and usher in the Millennium," and it did. (BB) twice said 1977 was Israel's Seventieth Jubilee: it was not; that would have made Calvary the Twenty-ninth Jubilee and retarded Israel by a further one and a half Jubilees. Based on AD26/27, regular calculations make AD1987/1988 Israel's Seventieth Jubilee and AD2036/2037 their Seventy-first (1987 + 49 = 2036/2037). When we study Brother Branham's carefully chosen words we see he spoke as he was led with purpose as Jesus commanded "baptism in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 28:18-19) in apparent contradiction with Luke 24:47 and Acts 2:38-39 spoken by the same Spirit. And as He allowed two disparate Greek words 'erchomai' and 'parousia' to be translated "come" in our English Bibles. Brother Branham said, "I trust that God will reveal this . . . sometime, we have to say things in such a way that it might thin down, it might bring some to go out, some to leave, and some to ponder over. But that's done purposely. It must be done that way" (64-0614M, The Unveiling of God, par. 22).
On another occasion he said, "God, my ministry is just now beginning . . . "I want to base it; I want to tear that thing out from where it was, and get rid of all these here leeches, and things a hanging on, so I can get to the people and tell them what's the truth." And that's right. I said, "I'm tired of this and the man-made stuff anyhow. And I'm going to be where God can use me. I'm going to live right in that channel, as long as I live" (52-0713A, Early Spiritual Experiences. par. E-61). The foolish virgins can read and memorize "the letter which killeth" whereas only the wise virgins possess "the Spirit which giveth eternal Life" (II Corinthians 3:6; Revelation 18:4).
* According to Chabad the "Jubilee year is currently not observed or commemorated." The year following the destruction of the second Holy Temple (3829 from creation, equivalent to AD68/69) was the first year of the seven-year Sabbatical cycle. We continue counting sevens from then Chabad. [This would be the first of seven years short of the Shmita cycle]. According to Jewish authorities 5782 on the Hebrew calendar Tishri 10 (September 7, 2021 to September 26, 2022) will be the next sabbatical or 'shmita' year." [Thus the Jubilee should be announced on Tishri 10, AD2022. I cannot follow Chabad's calculations; they date the Exodus at 2448 AM which is 1313BC]. (See our table at the end of 1182).
Like Brother Branham's parable of the Armour girl we are cutting it fine (63-0323, The Sixth Seal, par. 69-102). I expect brethren studying this series realize that our Pentecostal Jubilee will terminate "after the manifestation of the Sons of God when the Day of Pentecost has full come again." No matter how small the Church, Jesus said, "Wherever two or three are assembled together in My Name, I will be in their midst. And except those days should be shortened, there would be no flesh saved [for the Rapture]: but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened".
The great sin of Israel and Judah was idolatry. Each nation had adopted the trinitarian religion of Babylon which became the foundation dogma of the Judaeo-Roman church that organized at the First Nicaea Council in AD325. The Lord had Assyria conquer and dissolve the Northern Kingdom of Israel and transport the population to the now Muslim lands of North Africa and the Middle East where they remain "for fear of the [non-Semitic, anti-semitic self-styled] Jews." Likewise God had His servant Nebuchadnezzar conquer and transport the population of Judah to Babylon. And when they did not repent He multiplied their punishment seven times, and they have yet another week of years to serve before an election of both nations is gathered to the Land of the Covenant for redemption, for His Covenant is without effect outside the Land.
Leviticus 26:21-28, "If you walk contrary to Me, and will not hearken unto Me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins . . . Then will I also walk contrary to you, and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins." From seventy years to seventy weeks of years (7 x 70 = 490 years).
"Seventy weeks [of 360-day prophetic years, 490 years] are determined upon your people and upon your holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sin, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy PLACE" where the Ark stood as a type of Christ. "This time Christ will set in the most Holy Place with the anointing upon Him" (61-0730E, Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's Visit to Daniel, par. 127; Deuteronomy 16:16:1-6). "Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the decree of Artaxerxes [on Nisan 14, 445BC (Ezra 7:12, 21; Nehemiah 2:1-8)] to restore and to build Jerusalem until the Messiah the Prince there will be 7 weeks [of 49 prophetic] years, and 62 weeks [of 434 prophetic years]: the broad open plaza shall be built again, and the moat, even in troublous times."
"And after the 62 weeks of years Messiah will be cut off bereft of companions (Mark 14:51-52; Luke 22:56-62): and the people of Roman General Titus who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary [aided by treacherous Serpent's seed Edomite Jews]; and the end thereof shall be with a flood of Imperial Roman legionnaires; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined".
Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the colt of a she-ass on Palm Sunday, Nisan 9, AD30. The white ass is lowly compared with the horse and signified peace; as such it bore the meek and lowly yet divinely royal Prince of Peace in triumphal entrance into His own capital (Zechariah 9:9; Matthew 21:1-9; John 12:12-15). Jesus was murdered by His kinsmen on Nisan 14, AD30 fulfilling the 483 years.
In the first half of this year I expect the prince of Papal Rome will make a firm covenant with the many for one week of 7 prophetic years: after the midst of the week (3½ prophetic years—"time, times, and half a time," or 1,260 days) he will cause the sacrifice and the grain offering which the Jews have restored to cease (Daniel 7:25; 12:7; Revelation 12:6), and upon the pinnacle of detestable doctrines he will enforce his trinity, the "mark of the beast" (Revelation 13:7-10; 15-18) over the last 3½ years making Israel's third temple desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined will be poured upon the desolate".
Concerning prophetic years of 360 days Brother Branham explained, "Back before the antediluvian destruction, back in the days of Job and so forth, they kept the time by the stars, and we understand that before that time the world stood upright. And then in the sin of man, the overflow of the world, 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. We know that. And the earth does not set straight up; it sets tilted. That shook it out from where the moon and stars, where they was looking at, and misplaced them, you could not keep time by it anymore, because it's setting lopsided . . . setting tilted back. Therefore, it would not hit them stars at the same time; because it's out of cater to them stars. You understand? I believe that's what it is."
"It's laying back in that condition. And that only shows that this is just a period of time. Can't you see? God don't have things out of cater. He's just letting it run like that for a little time. And I truly believe that that thing was done, and at this last days is when God is going to reveal these secrets to the Church (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4-7). He hasn't done it before, and the reason He hasn't done it is to keep the church a-watching and praying all the time, not knowing when it was coming. But you remember in Daniel 12 He said, "The wise shall understand . . . in this last days"? It's been given to him (61-0806, The Seventieth Week of Daniel, par. 65-69; 63-0623E, The Flashing Red Light of His Coming, par. 966-97; Proving His Word, 17:91; Daniel 12:10; Ephesians 1:17). I mention this as an aside for any who mistakenly believe that the earth is flat when it is spheroid.
As a practical consideration it would be nearly impossible to calculate the prophecy in Daniel 9:24-27 from a calendar with a variable number of days in each year like the Hebrew calendar, which ranges from 353 to 385 days. God never changes His ways; thus prophetic time is calculated in twelve months of thirty days that overlay postdiluvian calendar systems like the fiftieth or Jubilee year, ignoring intercalary months as if earth stood upright as it did before the Great Flood, and as it will in the renewed heavens and earth. We just count days, converting Daniel's Seventy Weeks from Gregorian to prophetic years 7 x 7 x 70.
Having followed the moon over extended periods, we found the ancient sabbatical cycle alternating between 86 and 87 months until seven "weeks of years" completes the Jubilee of forty-nine years. When seven weeks are spread over one Jubilee, a pattern of eighteen intercalary months appears that repeats in each subsequent Jubilee cycle. This diagram shows fifty years divided into heptads. Each sabbatical year is indicated by a red square and the position of leap-months indicated by green dots. The fiftieth or jubilee year is shown in purple; it is superimposed over the forty-ninth year from Tishri 1 to Tishri 1 of the first year of the following cycle.
Intercalary months are not added to 'sabbatical' years since a thirteenth month would extend the sowing restrictions administering an unnecessary burden on Israel.
Compared to our calendar a few intercalary months are offset by one year: the calendar God gave Moses matches every season.
In addition to the 'week' of years is the forty-nine year sabbatical cycle starting on Nisan 1 following the previous Jubilee with intercalated months as explained until Tishri, the seventh month of the forty-ninth year. On Tishri 10, an exceptional fiftieth or jubilee year was announced. There are 17,718 days or 600 lunar months between Nisan 1 in the start of the first year to Tishri 1 on the forty-ninth year.
After Messiah was "cut off" in AD30 the Gentile dispensation began, the longest interval of all, now almost 2,000 years. Thus if the principle of not accounting time to Israel when her national independence was in abeyance were intelligible to the Judahites in regard to history, as established in Newsletter 1186, it was both natural and legitimate to introduce it in respect of the years of Daniel's Seventy Weeks when Judah's existence is in abeyance, for when wicked hands crucified our Lord, God pronounced the dread "Lo-ammi" upon the people (Hosea 1:9-10; Romans 9:25-26; 1:26) as it is to this day "until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in" (Romans 11:25-27). Thereafter God will again deal with Israel for "One week".
In the prophecy of Isaiah 61:1-2, God suspended almost 2,000 years on a comma (,). When reading this Scripture in the synagogue, Jesus stopped at that comma. Luke 4:18-19: "The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord," and He closed the Book, and gave it back to the minister.
"The day of vengeance of our God" awaits a future fulfillment in "the day when the Son of man is revealed" (Luke 17:30). Brother Branham's ministry restored the apostolic faith, revealed the fullness of the Word which introduced Christ's second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming as Son of man and Judge (John 5:26-27). It indicted the unbelieving world and "proclaimed the day of vengeance of our God" which will be "the great and dreadful day of the Lord" following the close of the Gentile Dispensation (Malachi 4:5, 6b). "For the heavens and the earth, which are now . . . are reserved for fire in the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men" (II Peter 3:7).
Deuteronomy 29:29, "The secret things belong to the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever, that we may do all the Words of this Law." God hides in humility and reveals Himself in simplicity: Exodus 12:6, Nehemiah 2:1 and Daniel 9:25 foretold the hour, day, week, month and year of Messiah's crucifixion. "Jesus did NOT say no man could know the year, month or week in which His coming was to be completed" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:4). The month and day will be Nisan 14, Good Friday when Los Angeles and a huge segment of earth's crust sink beneath the Pacific marking the close of the Gentile dispensation. Jubilees tell us the year in which His Coming will be completed. nl1188.htm
