Bible Believers' Newsletter #218

"We focus on the PRESENT Truth -- what Jesus is doing NOW . . ."                       ISSN 1442-8660

Christian greetings once again in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

At this time of the year almost 1977 years ago, Israel's apostate religious leaders and the government of the Roman province of Judea united to crucify the Lord of Glory. Thinking on that historical event be mindful this Easter that the self-styled "Jews" and their Roman politico-religious 'front' are united for the second crucifixion of the Word.

We should bear in mind that the true Christian Church is built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets who observed no Easter memorial. Easter, like Christmas and all of the other feasts and festivals in the calendar of the false Christian church is found in no Bible but derives from the pagan religion of ancient Babylon.

The calendar of the true Christian Church is the substance of which Israel's Pentecostal feast was but the shadow of what is now being realized in Christ's end-time Bride. Easter means resurrection. Every day is a resurrection for some Christian somewhere.

Please print out and mail, or e-mail several copies of this Newsletter as a resurrection Gift to someone you feel might be receptive to the reality of the PRESENT Truth - what Jesus is doing NOW. And be sure that you personally confirm everything personally in your own Bible. God richly bless you this Easter, . . . your brother-in-Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott

City of London Tilts the Balance of Terror

The City of London's 9/11 black op. has flown like a lead balloon. Too much Hollywood violence has numbed the sensibilities of Joe Six Pack and Sally Soccer Mom. Some more-terrifying disaster needs to be staged in order to push the human cattle into the slavery or slaughter corral of one World Government. Some catastrophe so contemptible, only the morally crippled mind of a Talmudic scholar writhing in Cabbalistic occult could hiss.

The next tragedy may be in Israel, in Germany or somewhere in United States, but not on the East Coast or London. An Islamic group or nation will be named, perhaps even 'nuked.' All power to the arm of the City; more land to the Israelis; more oil to the banksters, and more belligerence to all three.

The king of the "Jews" will be the real pope of the universe, patriarch of the international church (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17:11). Rome's current "Jewish" pope is fading; a series of Promethian events will need to be orchestrated to introduce a New World Order under his successor.

Brother Branham said America will employ nuclear bombs in order to unite the church with state, to bring Protestants and Catholics together in order to fight Communism, and unite all the world under the patriarch of the international church (Revelation 13:12-13; William Branham, The Mark of the Beast, #26:3, 22:160-161).

World War III is being waged inside your head. Brother Branham said the world would go insane. Daniel foresaw guerrilla war between the open secret and equivocal propaganda: an overload of information and disinformation so disorienting those without the Absolute of God's revealed Word will surrender their free will, becoming mind-slaves to the decision makers of the Establishment.

Here is some information and disinformation from Establishment propagandists regarding announcements by the US Administration this week threatening to 'nuke' Iraq before April 25, followed perhaps by Russia's nuclear arsenal. These announcements are intended to soften-up the public and provide ammunition for public opinion (making) pollsters such as Yankelovick, Skelly and White. Pass this through the filter of God's unchanging Word.

Iraqi Vet Says Depleted Uranium Killing Fish

Baghdad (Reuters) March 23, 2002 -- "Mortality rate among fish has reached 100 percent in some of the fish farms," said Dhahir Habib Dhahir, a veterinary surgeon at state-run Swairah fish farm 30 miles south of the capital. . . Head of the farm Adel al-Samaraee said the Iraqi Agriculture Ministry was due to study the fish, adding that the deaths were & quot;clearly caused by depleted uranium and poisonous materials dropped by American and British forces."

Depleted uranium is used as a component of armor-piercing munitions. When a uranium-tipped weapon hits an object, it produces a vapor that is weakly radioactive. Iraqi authorities say the allied forces used an estimated 300 tons of depleted uranium munitions against Iraq in the US-led 1991 offensive to recapture Kuwait. . .

Iraq also says the number of cancer cases among Iraqis has soared since the Gulf War because of depleted uranium. . . after lobbying from Washington, the United Nations General Assembly voted down an Iraqi proposal for a UN-backed study into the effects of depleted uranium shells in the Gulf War. . .

Zionist Calls for Genocide Against Palestinians

Occupied Jerusalem: 10 March, 2002 (IAP News) -- In an interview with the Hebrew weekly "Yerushhalyim" published on 1 March and republished by the mainstream Hebrew press this week, Professor Martin Van Creveld, argued that the Israeli army would have to kill tens of thousands of Palestinian civilians in order "to restore the balance of deterrence between us and them."

Asked if he would favor bombarding Palestinian cities and causing thousands of deaths among civilians, Creveld answered positively.

"Yes, as much as is needed in order that there will not be a need to repeat it, so that they won't tail us during the time of the withdrawal. We have to strike so hard that there won't be a need for a second strike. Perhaps 5000, or 10,000 killed won't be enough and then we will have to kill more."

Creveld, who was introduced as a renowned military historian, said mass killing would have to be done so quickly and so strongly that until [when] the world understood what was happening the matter would be over." . . .

Comment: The same people paid Professor Baron Karl von Ritter to formulate National Socialism and now moan about Nazis. Their holy book teaches the lives of one thousand Semitic Palestinians or one thousand of we Gentiles are not worth one non-Semitic, anti-Semitic genealogically nondescript "Jewish" fingernail.

The Pale Horse Rider

Paul wrote, "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby you are sealed unto the day of redemption" (Ephesians 4:30). Or as Brother Branham said, "until the day that the Book of Redemption has been revealed, and the Redeemer comes to claim His possession"  (Revelation 5:7; 10:1-7).

The emphasis of ministry throughout the Church Ages was upon the "justification" of the saints through their faith in Christ's sacrifice and His gracious mediation for their ignorance of the full Word. His intercession was required -- not for their faith in PART-Word -- but because the balance of their understanding presumed to interpret the hidden mysteries. Christ recognized their faith in the Word for their age and covered their ignorance, otherwise this sin would have separated them from God Who is the Word.

Since only PART-Word was revealed and different groups claiming to be Christians were preaching opposing doctrines, there was a degree of confusion among believers so the ministry concentrated upon rationalization or Scriptural argument to prove to the saints that they were sealed unto the day of their redemption, and remove the doubts that arose because questions often could not be adequately answered since their mystery was sealed to the day when the Book of Redemption has been revealed. Therefore Paul cautioned the saints: 'Control your lips and your actions lest you grieve the Holy Spirit'.

Christ's mediation was fulfilled when the last saint predestinated to the Laodicean Age was redeemed. Then the Lamb left the altar of sacrifice and our High Priest advanced from the intercessory at the golden altar to the Ark or Throne in the Holy of Holies. He took the Book from the Holy Spirit upon the Throne, tore open the Seven Seals and revealed them to us through His Prophet, William Branham.

Since the Seven Seals have been revealed and the mystery of God is finished, the plan of redemption in each age is made plain so the emphasis of ministry is no longer justification but revealing redemption. We now have the answers to all of the unresolved questions of the Church Age saints. The purpose of revealing whom Christ redeemed in each age and how they were redeemed enables us to recognize OUR position in the Body and ensures we will not try to impersonate the saints of the Sardis, Philadelphia or Laodicean Ages, whose members are already made-up. The faith of the Church Age saints was tried and proven in their constant searching and studying of the Word to justify their identification in the Body; to comfort themselves that they knew Him and were living pleasing unto Him.

Unlike the Church Age saints we don't study God's Word to justify our Christian identity; the end-time Bride sees her position in the Body and knows without doubt she is the sinless, spotless Bride of Christ who can never grieve the Spirit of God. We study His Word so we may conform to It as a Word Bride.

The revelation of the fullness of the Word enables the Bride to distinguish between the different Church Ages, to see her position in the Word and to recognize that the trial of her faith is to know "it is finished," and "time is no more." Like Ruth, we are resting and waiting for our reward. Christ's Victory is ours; we no longer need to strive to understand this or that part of the Word for God sent us a Prophet with THUS SAITH THE LORD. We need to apply his Message as the "Key" that unlocks the hidden mysteries, and come under pre-eminence to the Word thereby so that the Holy Spirit might make a new wave offering in us in the manifestation of the Sons of God. Until we meet that condition there can be no resurrection of the Church Age saints.

The focus of our ministry is not upon our justification for we see our place in the Word. Our focus is upon the PRESENT Truth -- what Jesus is doing NOW in the restoration of all things to the perfection that existed in Eden before the Fall. That is our destiny in this generation. But in order to be among that Sons of God in this day we must have the creative power of His Word in us as It was in Adam before the Fall. The revelation of the Seven Thunders enables us to recognize that we are now redeemed Sons with no condemnation, and whenever we are under pre-eminence what we do and what we say will be God's Word which He will perform. We are Messiahettes!

Speaking of the ministry of the end-time Elijah, Brother Branham said, "We've got to come to a place again, to something that's going to introduce the Messiah. And how will the people that's believing Him know it, unless they're constantly in the Word to know what He is. Daniel said the wise shall know, but the foolish, the unwise wouldn't know. . ."

". . . He said It'll appear in the last days to bring the people back to the Word, so that the Bride will know Her Husband, know Her Mate, the revealed Word. That's why this has to happen. It wasn't in the reformers; wasn't in Luther, Wesley, and the Pentecostals, and them; the Scripture says it wasn't."

". . . that is His promise for this age. We're living in the age that His Coming will be in. She must be identified in Him. Any woman must be identified with her husband, for the two are one. And Christ's Bride has to be identified with Him, for the two are One, and He is the Word, not the denomination, the Word. We are to be the children of the Light, and the Light is the Word which is made Light for this age. How do we know Light, except It comes from the Word. All right. The Word made flesh is the Light of the age when you see It; the Bible said so" (William Branham, Feast of Trumpets, 15:113-115).

The mainly Gentile Bride of Christ is redeemed under the first Four Seals. Let's quickly review our studies in the Seals so far. Each Seal was opened by a living creature signifying a power. Each living creature called the saints under his Seal in a human voice signifying authority, and his countenance represented the nature of the anointing God had raised against the power or horse ridden by the Enemy under that Seal.

Power under the First Seal was Christ's Own influence over the original apostles and saints of Pentecost and Ephesus, represented by the tribal emblem of the Lion of the tribe of Judah. The token or evidence of His Life in Pentecost, but diminishing in Ephesus, was faith. while virtue (or Spiritual strength) and godly knowledge stood forth in the ages of Smyrna and Pergamos. Riding forth on a white horse, Satan impersonated Christ by organizing a church of his own, the Roman Universal church, and taking Spiritual power in union with Rome, received a triple crown and an earthly headquarters.

Authority or power under the Second Seal came to those who answered the call and received the anointing of a living creature with the face of a calf or ox, the symbol of Ephraim. These saints received the spirit of temperance or self-restraint and moderation of a pastor for continual labor and endurance even unto death during the Dark Ages when Satan's horse became red with the blood of scores of millions of Christian martyrs. Having united church and state he formed the Holy Roman Empire, and a sword was given to him to take absolute political power and to kill whoever opposed him.

Under the Third Seal the anointing of overcoming power came upon those who answered the call of the creature with the face of a man. Reuben's tribal emblem indicated the wisdom, intelligence and eloquence of the teacher evident in the Reformers whose scholarship will never be excelled, but who failed to realize that the horseman of the Apocalypse was Satan. His horse was now black signifying the superstitious ignorance engendered under the previous Seal. Here under "Jewish" popes his Marranos organized the Jesuit Order behind which disguise they infiltrated and conquered the Roman church from within, elevating their Black Pope above the White Pope, and attacking Protestant reforms. Under this Seal Rome gained control of demon power and began marketing the hope of Spiritual blessings and the grace of God in exchange for material wealth.

Rome's wealth has compounded over many centuries until the wealth of the world may be found in her as described in Revelation 17-18. "For example, the Cathedral of St. Salvator in the small city of Zaragoza, contained ten thousand ounces of silver, 84 chalices, 20 of which were made of solid gold. The custodia used to carry the Host in procession was five hundred pound weight solid gold, and set with diamonds, emeralds and other precious stones. The custodia was so valuable that several goldsmiths tried but were unable to estimate its worth."

"Our Lady of the Pillar, another church in Zaragova, had a crown on the image of the Virgin Mary that was twenty five pounds weight and set all over with so many diamonds that no gold could be seen on it. People seeing the crown thought it was made entirely of diamonds. The idol of Mary also had 6 other pure solid gold crowns set with diamonds and emeralds. The image of Mary had 365 necklaces of pearls and diamonds (one for each day of the year), and innumerable crafted roses of diamonds and other precious stones. There were so many diamond roses, in fact, that a different set of roses could adorn the idol each day for three years straight. The graven image had a different skirt for each day of the year; the skirts were embroidered in gold, diamonds, and other precious stones. That was not the only image in the church, another five foot image was made entirely of silver and adorned with precious stones with a diamond studded crown of pure gold (Edward Hendrie, Antichrist Conspiracy -- Inside the Devil's Lair, p. 78).

In 1983 Avro Manhatten estimated the Catholic church's wealth just in the United States alone has been conservatively estimated at over $100 billion (Avro Manhatten, The Vatican Billions, p. 187;

The token of new birth under this Seal was Patience in the Sardis Age in which Luther restored the revelation of justification by grace through faith without works; Godliness was added in the Philadelphian Age where John Wesley taught experientially living the Word in a Scripturally sanctified life.

The Fourth Seal was introduced by a creature with the face of an eagle, the standard of the tribe of Dan. The eagle can fly higher than other birds, way above the things of this world into heavenly places, and has the peculiar ability to refocus his vision to see afar off "things that are to be." He eats only fresh manna and is a type of the evangelist and prophet. Jesus likened the end-time Bride to eagles saying, "wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together" (Matthew 24:28).

Revelation 10:7 and Malachi 4:5-6 promised us a prophet at the close of Laodicea whose ministry would finish the mystery of God and restore the apostolic faith. Brother Branham said Malachi 1:4 was also promised with the rise of Esau rebuilding the desolate places in Israel which men will call, "the land of wickedness, and, the people against whom the Lord has indignation for ever" because these Edomite self-styled "Jews" and Rome will reach a seven-year accommodation in accordance with Daniel 9:27 whereby the "Jew"-controlled Vatican will secure the "Jew's" paper empire by refinancing Edom's fiat money, and Rome will rule from Jerusalem over a totalitarian one world government called by the Illuminati Great Seal of the United States, "Novus Ordo Seclorum," a new worldly order which Scripture calls the great tribulation.

The Fourth Seal spans the last two Gentile dispensations. Laodicea, where the token was brotherly kindness and the messenger William Branham did the work of an evangelist. Not taking sides with any denomination, he stood between them all since Christ was still a Mediator and preached the Word for the hour: "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today and forever." The Lord vindicated his ministry by His appearing in mighty signs and wonders as in the days of His flesh and in the ministries of the original apostles.

God was gathering believers for a prophetic Message at the end of the Laodicean Church Age "when men would no longer endure sound doctrine: but after their own lusts heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears, (tele-evangelists, charismatics, prosperity preachers, secret "Jews," Jesuits masquerading as Protestants, and women preachers), and shall turn away their ears from the truth unto fables" (II Timothy 4:1-5).

At the close of Laodicea Brother Branham's ministry of evangelism was fulfilled and he entered his prophetic calling. Christ opened the Seven Seals and revealed them through the Prophet as he was anointed by the seven successive portions of the Spirit that had inspired the Church Age messengers. The Spirit of Elijah in this day was Jesus Christ. Under the fullness of the Spirit he introduced the fullness of the Word. The revelation of the Seven Seals restored the apostolic faith and finished the mystery of God, bringing Christ back to earth in Word form as prophesied by Jesus, His apostles and prophets.

When the last saint predestinated to Laodicea was born-again, redemption was over. Christ's mediation was fulfilled; there was no longer any blood on the sacrifice altar, and the Mercy Seat on the Ark or Throne of God became a Judgment Seat. Pentecost and the seven sabbaths are past; we are now living in the fiftieth day of the Pentecostal Feast. This is the last of the Gentile dispensations. As it is a holy convocation we don't work to determine the hidden mysteries, the revelation of the Seven Seals is "the true sayings of God" (Revelation 19:8-9; 22:10-19).

We now have the true evidence or Token of the baptism with the Holy Spirit which is the Life of Christ in us by the fullness of the virtues that empowered the Church Age saints to overcome sin, the flesh and the world represented by agape, God's Own love. This unity of the faith for which Jesus petitioned in Gethsemane is "the key to the kingdom of heaven" or new birth given to every saint in all of the ages of PART-Word plus "the keys of death and hell -- The mighty power that God worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead". This mighty power will produce translation faith in His end-time Bride who will not see death but change in the atoms.

Under the Fourth Seal Satan rode a pale yellow horse pointing to the element of fear as well as to the hue of a dead body and the greenish yellow of decay. The rider now receives the name Death, and the whole domain of hades follows with him, for the wages of sin is death, and he leads the kingdom of the Spiritually dead to perdition in the lake of Fire at the end of his ride.

Jesus has delivered whomsoever will of Adam's race from death and the fear of eternal separation from God. Scripture speaks of the departed saints as "sleeping," not dead. When our consciousness of guilt is removed through faith in the remission of our past sins and regeneration we receive a childlike boldness to come before the Presence of God as the state of our bondage has disappeared (Romans 81-39; Hebrews 12:14-17).

Satan's ride has brought death throughout the Gentile dispensation. As the antichrist spirit he brought spiritual death when he organized his dead church. As the false prophet he united church and state, assuming political power which enabled him to physically slaughter his opponents. Then as vicar of heaven, earth and purgatory he employed demonic power whereby he charged people to buy sinners out of purgatory in exchange for their wealth. King John gave the kingdom of England to the pope to have his soul released from excommunication. Under the Fourth Seal Satan is working to establish his totalitarian one world government by the combination of spiritual, political and demon power. But once the last soul foreordained to the end-time Bride has been baptized into Christ, the Fourth Seal is fulfilled and Satan will be cast out from heavenly places, for his accusing days are over once ALL of the Bride owns the revelation, and recognizing her position in Christ refuses the lie of Satan's accusations (Revelation 12:7-9).

Romans 8:1-4, "There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the Law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending His Own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: that the righteousness of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit".

How can we expect to manifest the Sons of God unless we know our position in Christ? And know that we are FREE from condemnation, and exercise the boldness to state we are His glorious Church without spot or wrinkle or any such thing but that we are holy and without blemish! While the Church Age saints resurrect we will manifest that they are the Sons of God. Then Satan is cast down to earth to incarnate the man of sin while we are translated into glorified flesh to unite with our brethren and meet the Lord in the air.

Once he has incarnate the false prophet or pope, hereafter known as the beast, Satan will persecute the foolish virgin and deceive all but the 144,000 elect Israelites (II Thessalonians 2:1-12; Revelation 12:13; 13:1-8; 16:13-14).

The emblems of the four head tribes of Israel encamped at the four cardinal points around the Ark of the Covenant prefigured the four living creatures which prefigure the Gospels: Matthew, the Lion of the tribe of Judah in the East; Mark, the Ox or Calf of the tribe of Ephraim in the West; Luke, the Man of the tribe of Reuben in the South; and John, the Eagle of the tribe of Dan in the North. To be born-again is to enter the Presence in New Jerusalem represented by the Book of the Acts of the Holy Spirit in the Apostles AND all of the saints. One must possess the faith to enter one of the twelve gates guarded by the Gospels (Revelation 22:9-27). These four living creatures representing the life forms ordained to hold dominion over the Earth guard the way to the Presence of God in the Tree of Life against the four worldly powers unleashed by Satan's ride, for "nothing that defiles, nor anyone who commits abomination, or practices falsehood, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life shall enter therein".

"See how that Judas spirit came back as a rider on a white horse. It was white. So close to the real, just as Judas was so close to Jesus. A crown was given to the white horse rider. How? That spirit was now in the leader of the Nicolaitane system and he was a triple crowned pope who sat as God in his temple, calling himself the vicar of Christ. If vicar of Christ means 'instead of Christ' or 'in place of' or 'on behalf of God' then the pope was calling himself the Holy Ghost, or deposing the Holy Ghost, acting for Him. That was the Judas spirit in him doing that. See how he conquered -- going forth conquering and to conquer. Christ did not do that. Those that came to Him were already predestinated by the Father. And so on and on went that spirit and one day it will become truly incarnate in a man who will head up the World Council of Churches, just as we have been saying. And by his gold (remember Judas held the bag) he will control the whole world, and that antichrist system will own everything and try to control everybody. But Jesus will come back and destroy them all with the brightness of His Coming. And their end will be the lake of Fire" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 378:1).

Revelation 6:7-8, "And when He had opened the Fourth Seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, 'Come'. And I looked, and beheld a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with DEATH, and with the beasts of the earth".

At the end of the Fourth Seal Satan receives authority over fourth or worldly part of men because the Gentile dispensation ends in apostasy and the residue of men are either physical Serpent's seed who were never on the Book of Life, or apostate descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob from among whom 144,000 elect, along with the different classes of the "saved," will be purged in the tribulation under the Sixth Seal. And heavens and earth will be purged or purified for the Millennium.

God gave the Roman Catholic church a space of almost a thousand years for repentance during the Thyatira Age but she repented not and took Satan's name, Death. God warned all who commit adultery with her they will be cast into the same bed and into the great tribulation unless they repent. And He promised her Protestant daughters He will kill them likewise with spiritual death (Revelation 2:18-23; 19:18-21; 20:10). God gave them five hundred years during the Reformation in which to repent and they repented not. Since the apostolic faith has been restored through the revelation of the Seven Seals, Christ is calling the wise and foolish virgin out from Rome and her harlot daughters (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4). This is the ministry of Christ's end-time Bride (Revelation 10:8-11).

The Fourth Seal of Revelation is also found in Matthew 24:8: "All these are the beginning of sorrows." Under the Sixth Seal Satan will force the mark of the beast and destroy all who refuse his doctrine or command (Revelation 13:15-18). Denominationalism is the antichrist headed by Rome, Death and hades, whose end is the lake of Fire.

Spiritual death strikes when one rejects the call of the living creature or the Bride once too often and his name is removed from the Book of Life. Whosoever will save his Soul shall lose his life during the great tribulation of the Sixth Seal: "killed by the sword, and with hunger, and by the beasts of the earth," by the fourth part of the Earth or worldly men who follow Satan under the common banner of Death. It matches the color of his fourth horse, being pale yellow and bearing crossed keys beneath a triple crown over a white background.

Revelation 22:16-19, "I Jesus have sent My angel (William Branham) to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. (In other words, his revelation of the Seven Seals is THUS SAITH THE LORD). And the Spirit and the Bride say, 'Come' (as the four lively creatures beckoned). And let him that hears say, 'Come'. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. For I testify unto every man that hears the Words of the prophecy of this Book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: and if any man shall take away from the Words of the Book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this Book". nl218.htm
