"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ as we continue our study, "What is He doing Now?" What is Jesus Christ doing now?
As Jesus and Brother Branham have both warned us "the enemy" is the alien-controlled US Government itself (Revelation 13:11-18; The Junction of Time, p. 19:137, 140, 167, 169-170), we also need to recognize what the Administration of George II is doing now. US Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge warns that naughty CIA "asset," Osama bin Laden, "plans to disrupt the November elections" and that Al Qaeda plans a large scale attack on American soil during the presidential election campaign. Since Al Qaeda is a creation of US Intelligence, and the terror network is supported by the Bush Administration, Terrorist Tom's warning is credible.
Thanks, Tom! But can we be sure you have given Al Qaeda and Osama "the go" and that this is not just one more false alarm designed to instill fear and make us "putty in your hands"? There is ample documentation to show that not only is Al Qaeda a CIA-sponsored "asset," and that the disinformation regarding the terror attacks emanates out of US Intelligence, but Mr. bin Laden has been dead and buried for the past three years!

Michael Ruppert accuses Cheney of Mass Murders
August 31, 2004 Michael Ruppert gave a speech at the "Commonwealth Club" in San Francisco accusing Dick Cheney of actually being in on the 9/11 attacks. Activist Dick Gregory said of Ruppert, an ex-cop who took on the CIA: "This is the man who cost CIA Director Deutch his guaranteed appointment as Secretary of Defense after confronting him at Locke High School with hard facts about the CIA dealing drugs to get money for black budget operations."
Promoting his new book, "Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil," Michael Ruppert said:
"I will name Richard Cheney as prime suspect in the mass murders of 9/11 and will establish that, not only was he a planner in the attacks, but also that on the day of the attacks he was running a completely separate Command, Control and Communications system which was superseding any orders being issued by the NMCC (National Military Command Center), or the White House Situation Room."
I will establish conclusively that in May of 2001, by presidential order, Richard Cheney was put in direct command and control of all war-game and field exercise training and scheduling through several agencies, especially FEMA. This also extended to all of the conflicting and overlapping NORAD drills on that day.
I will also demonstrate that the TRIPOD II exercise being set up on Sept. 10 in Manhattan was directly connected to Cheney's role.
I will also prove conclusively that a number of public officials, at the national and New York City levels, including then Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, were aware that Flight 175 was en route to lower Manhattan for 20 minutes and did nothing to order the evacuation of or warn the occupants of the South Tower. One military officer was forced to leave his post in the middle of the attacks and place a private call to his brotherwho worked at the WTCwarning him to get out. That was because no other part of the system was taking action.
I will also show that the Israeli and British governments acted as partners with the highest levels of the American government to help in the preparation and, very possibly, the actual execution of the attacks."
"There is more reason to be afraid of not facing the evidence in this book than of facing what is in it."

The War in Chechnya
With regard to Chechnya, the main rebel leaders Shamil Basayev and Al Khattab were trained and indoctrinated in CIA-sponsored camps in Afghanistan and Pakistan. According to Yossef Bodansky, director of the US Congress's Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare, the war in Chechnya had been planned during a secret summit of HizbAllah International held in 1996 in Mogadishu, Somalia. The summit, was attended by (the CIA's) Osama bin Laden and high-ranking Iranian and Pakistani intelligence officers. In this regard, the involvement of Pakistan's ISI in Chechnya "goes far beyond supplying the Chechens with weapons and expertise: the (CIA asset) ISI and its radical Islamic proxies are actually calling the shots in this war".
Russia's main pipeline route transits through Chechnya and Dagestan. Despite Washington's perfunctory condemnation of Islamic terrorism, the indirect beneficiaries of the Chechen war are the Anglo-American oil conglomerates which are vying for control over oil resources and pipeline corridors out of the Caspian Sea basin.
The two main Chechen rebel armies (respectively led by Commander Shamil Basayev and Emir Khattab) estimated at 35,000 strong were supported by Pakistan's ISI, which also played a key role in organizing and training the Chechen rebel army: Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: This being the case, the synchronized exploding aircraft, followed immediately by pre-meditated mass deaths in the enclosed environment of the Beslan School were planned to hasten the "hot" phase of World War III and grab more oil for the City of London. The release of video footage of the hostages in Beslan heightens this suspicion.
Russian FM welcomes Israeli Cooperation on Terror

Comment: "Oooh, Grandmama . . . what big teeth you have!" The fox in the hen house will teach Russia to deal out terrorism on Islamic Chechnya as he taught the United States to deal out terrorism on Islamic Afghanistan and Iraq.
"Some call it MarxismI call it Judaism" (Chief Rabbi of the United States, Stephen S. Wise: The American Bulletin, May 15, 1935). Communism is still Judaism (Ezekiel 38-39; Revelation 17:16-17) and more powerful than it was from 1917 to the Cold War, since going underground for its "peace offensive".
"The bourgeoisie will have to be put to sleep. So we shall begin by launching the most spectacular peace movement on record . . . The capitalist countries, stupid and decadent, will rejoice to join in their own destruction. They will leap at another chance to be friends. As soon as their guard is down, we will smash them with our clenched fist" (Dimitri Manuilski, Russian delegate to the UN). We are presently experiencing this "peace offensive" launched by Premier Khrushchev and continued by his successors in Russia, in Israel, and in the White House.
It appears that the arms cache was planted beneath the floor of the Beslan school during its construction as the explosives were planted in the WTC in advance of 9/11. Do great minds think alike, or were these incidents overseen by the same mind?
Silent Running: 'Black Triangle' Sightings on the Rise
September 2, 2004 "The United States is currently experiencing a wave of Flying Triangles . . . openly deployed over and near population centers, including the vicinity of major Interstate Highways" . . . consistent with (a) the routine and open deployment of an unacknowledged advanced Department of Defense (DoD) aircraft or (b) the routine and open deployment of an aircraft owned and operated by non-DoD personnel, says a National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS) study.
Sightings take place near cities and on Interstate highways
They are seen at low altitude in plain sight of eyewitnesses
They fly at extremely low speed or hover in plain sight of eyewitnesses
The vehicles sometime fly with easily noticeable bright lightseither blinding white lights, or "bright disco lights" that usually flash combinations of red, green or blue.
The NIDS study emphasizes that the flying of these vehicles may be more in harmony with an attempt to display or to be noticed. There appears to be little or no attempt to hide. That finding has led to a modification of an earlier NIDS hypothesis that the Triangles are covertly deployed DoD aircraft. But why no photos? Full story: space.com ufoevidence.org
Comment: The Report from Iron Mountain on the Possibility and Desirability of Peace, proposed an extraterrestrial threat as a replacement for war. When Brother Branham mentioned these "Triangles" flying in formation, he identified the United States of America as "the enemy," and these sightings would appear to be intimidation by America's parallel government.

Proposals to fluoridate Queensland Water Supplies
Open Letter to the Queensland Government:
We wish to express our grave concerns regarding renewed proposals to fluoridate Queensland's water supplies. Fluoridation began at a time when asbestos lined our pipes, when lead was added to petrol, and DDT was regarded as safe and effective. These chemicals have now been banned, but fluoridation remains untouched.
. . . Data compiled by the World Health Organization shows tooth decay has declined at a similar rate in all Western Countries, irrespective of each country's water or salt fluoridation status . . . The fluoridating agent most commonly used is a hazardous contaminated industrial-grade product from the phosphate fertilizer industry. We strongly reject the notion that placing a chronic poison in our water supplies is clever preventive medicine.
We represent 1,500 doctors, dentists, scientists and others working in the interests of public health who are primarily interested in prevention and early intervention in disease processes. Full story: fluoridealert.org
Before it came to pass I proclaimed it to You (Isaiah 48:5)
In 1989 US President George H.W. Bush had an audience with the Pope, followed three weeks later by Mikhail Gorbachev of the USSR. The peaceful revolution of October/November saw the overthrow of Soviet rule in the East and on December 9, Chancellor Helmut Kohl in a televised address from the Brandenburg Gate, thanked the Pope for his role in the reunion of Germany.
But we were not told that the Plenipotentiary for the Constitutionally Special Status of Berlin (A Body of Public Law, Provisional Seat Konigsweg 1 W-1000, Berlin-Zehlendorf 1), "forced, approved and called up for essential service by the Western Powers, had on November 15, 1987, in the Reichstag already announced the exact date the Wall would fall in 1989". As F. D. Roosevelt assured us, "If something happens in politics you can bet it was planned that way."
On March 19, 1962, six months after the Berlin Wall was constructed, God said through William Branham, "There has been a Roman revival. Do you know what happens? If they give the Eastern part of Berlin back, that puts communism out. That puts the Roman Empire just exactly into the circle it was in the times of Jesus Christ. Certainly it does. Perfect" (End-time Seed Sign, #62-0319). Before there was a Berlin God spoke the prophecy through Daniel (2:40-45; 7:7-8, 19-26), John and Jesus (Revelation 13:1-8; 17:12-18).
What is He doing Now? Part III
Revelation 1:10-19 divides the New Testament into three time periods. Jesus told John, write "the things you have seen in the Patmos vision" (Revelation 1:12-16); second, "the things which are now in the Church Ages" (Revelation 2-3), and third, "the things that shall be thereafter" (Revelation 4:1-22:21).
2. The Things which Are:
The Gentile dispensation is the antitype of the Pentecostal feast of Leviticus 23. It commenced in AD33 with a brief dispensation we call Alpha or Pentecost when the saints understood and held the Word of God pure and undefiled as it was delivered to the apostolic fathers. This was a holy convocation typed by the last six days of the feast of Unleavened Bread. And although the Church only had PART-Word, for the New Testament was just beginning to be written in the lives of the primitive Church and the Book of Redemption was sealed with Seven Seals to the time of the end, they did not add to or diminish from the pure faith. The Bread from heaven was yet unleavened by human reasoning.
Pentecost ended around the time of the council in Jerusalem in about AD53 (Acts 15) as Jewish fables and the "deeds of the nicolaitanes" infiltrated congregations, violating God's virgin Word with superstition and presumption. Typed by the seven sabbaths of the feast of Weeks, seven dispensations of PART-Word mixed with reasoning followed wherein the elect of each Age entered their rest by a different measure of faith or baptism with the Holy Spirit, expressing a different Attribute of the Life of Christ in the saints of each Age.
A specific portion of Word is predestinated to each Age with a different measure of the Spirit to quicken that Word and transform the saints into written epistles of the Message for their day as God builds the Body of Christ, "precept upon precept, line upon line, revelation upon revelation, Age upon Age." Brother Branham drew a diagram of the Great Pyramid, God's second Bible, to show how God is reproducing the Stature of the perfect Man in the Bride of all Ages. Last week we discussed the first time period, catching the mind of God when we saw the Bride already glorified, for John's Patmos vision reveals "God's chosen people" are the Spiritual offspring of Abraham's Seed (singular), the many membered Body of our Lord Jesus Christ. That "One like the Son of man" is Christ's true Church, born of His Spirit and washed in His Blood.
The Pyramid shows how the whole Church of the Living God is built on the foundation of Jesus Christ the Word (I Corinthians 3:11-13) which is "the doctrine of the apostles and prophets" (Ephesians 2:20) written in the lives of the Alpha or Pentecostal Age saints. Seven successive, progressive measures of faith or baptisms with the Holy Spirit formed the saints of the seven Church Ages. And as the measure of faith grew, the evidence of the Life rose to a successively higher plane. But the number of elect diminished while the number of unbelievers and agnostics increased and the Laodicean Age ended in apostasy. As Christ's Mediation was also finished there was an impassable breach between the fullness of the Word that would complete the Pyramid, and an as yet uncalled people predestinated to be the Word-Bride who would conform to the Headstone (Zechariah 14:7).
Brother Branham stood in the gap as the instrument through which God would restore the apostolic faith and finish the mystery of God whereby the end-time Bride could cross the chasm as Sons of God, for without us the PART-Word Bride cannot be glorified. His ministry has "restored the fullness of the Word spoken by the mouth of all God's holy prophets since the world began" (Acts 3:21; Revelation 10:7). The fullness of the Word is Christ"that which is perfect" or complete (I Corinthians 13:10). Since Christ was no longer a Mediator for ignorance of the Word, the only means by which the predestinated can enter the Capstone is to possess a clear revelation of the perfect Word. With perfect revelation we have no need for a Mediator.
This is not to imply that we are required to possess the fullness of the revelation of God's Word. No man has that, for Christ will be revealing His Word throughout eternity, but what faith we do have will be perfect revelation "against which the gates of hell shall not prevail. . . And it shall come to pass, that every soul, who will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people" or cast into the tribulation with the non-elect and the lost (Acts 3:23),
Only a life lived by a clear revelation of the end-time Message will enable one to enter the Capstone. The Capstone is Jesus Christ, the love of God, and God will become flesh in Christ's end-time Bride when the sleeping members of the Body arise from the grave, for then we will manifest the Sons of God as the Body cannot rise without the Head which we become under pre-eminence to the Word.
A man and His Message is the same thing. Brother Branham was one with his Message and he entered the Capstone or the tent of the Word made of the constellation of angels (or seven-fold Spirit of God) via the last portion of the Spirit which produced the fullness to break the Seventh Seal and introduce "that which is perfect," Christ, the Word (William Branham, The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 565:4; 577:4-578:4). This was his "Elijah" anointing, for "the Elijah of this day is the Lord Jesus Christ".
Before the vision came to pass, Brother Branham shared it with his Church in the Message, "Sirs, is this the Time?" (p. 26:1-4). Or "Is this the Sign of the End-Time?" Or, "Is this the Sign of Christ's Parousia and the End of Time?" as the disciples asked in Matthew 24:3 (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4). The vision was fulfilled on March 9, 1963 when he was hunting Javelina pigs upon Sunset Mountain.
In order to be the Capstone Bride we must follow the footsteps of Brother Branham, hearing, recognizing, and acting on the first voice we heard in Revelation 1:10, 12, and 15, which is the voice of Jesus Christ by the Holy Ghost in His Bride through the Ages. Revelation 4:1, "Come up hither, and I will show you things which must be hereafter." That Voice is Jesus calling us up into the tent of the Word by the seventh angel's Message, over and above Laodicea and the breach, into the Capstone revelation.
"The things which are" were the Seven Church Ages, for John was in the Ephesian Church Age when the Lord revealed these things. The final PART-Word Age rejected her Lord by refusing to receive further revelation of the Word. Revelation 3:20, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My Voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and dine with him, and he with Me".
When the fullness of the Word came, they put Him outside their churches because they had denominated and His Voice condemned the creeds of their organizations. Thus the espoused but not married church put Him away, and as Ahasuerus or Xerxes put away Queen Vashti when she withstood the king, and married Esther, so Christ put her away.
I Corinthians 7 and Romans 7 expound the polygamy law. If she puts him away, "let her remain unmarried . . . for the woman who has a husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he lives . . . if, while her husband is alive, she marries another man, she shall be called an adulteress . . ."
At the end of every Church Age, when Christ sought to make love, the non-elect who claimed to be His Bride refused to receive Him so He put them away and revealed Himself to those predestinated to the new Age (John 3:18). In all seven Church Ages the church carnal refused to become a continuation of His Word and they crucified again for themselves the Son of God (Hebrews 6:6-8).
Laodicea was Pentecost (1906-1963) and as "that which is perfect has come," all seven Church Ages are over. Brother Branham confirms this in the following references: ibid, p. 76:2; 125:3; 126:3; The Feast of the Trumpets, p. 9:64, 134, 244-246, 305; The Future Home of the Heavenly Bridegroom and the Earthly Bride, p. 30:236, 239).
The "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 is the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6 and Revelation 18:4, "Behold the Bridegroom . . . Come out of Babylon to meet Him." This ended Laodicea, but not all of the virgins heard it in 1963 so the "shout" is still calling the wheat out from the system left behind following the death of Laodicea, or the completion of the Church Age saints.
Referring to the Pyramid diagram we see that all seven Church Ages are made up and sealed. Those parts of the Body are complete, and the church systems that remain are actually not in the divisions of the Body they impersonate, but outside the Pyramid in the worldly Laodicean condition described in Revelation 3:17-20, "and know it not".
Revelation 18:1-4, "And after these things I saw another Angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with His glory. And He cried mightily with a strong Voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become the habitation of demons, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that you do not partake of her sins, and receive not of her plagues".
The Voice of God is calling His people out from Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches into the fullness of the Word or Capstone, for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the body change (Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:49-54).
Ephesians 1:10, "In the dispensation of the fullness of times (plural) He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earthin Him".
"The fullness of times." Greek 'kairos' means "times of opportunities and accomplishments, and not just the succession of moments (Gk. 'chronos'). As explained in Newsletter 286 this Greek word can be better understood as "opportune time." The necessity of accomplishing the task at hand, whether it is convenient or not, must be grasped and understood in order for us to fulfill kairos time. Kairos time is that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, that second or minute, hour or year, when a golden opportunity is sovereignly given to us by the Almighty. What we do with it can change our lives, the lives of others, a nation, and even the world.
The Church Ages were limited periods of time or dispensations in which those who would be baptized into those parts of the Body had to be born-again by the Word for their hour. Successive denominations have successively missed their 'kairos' time, "and know it not." Kairos time for we Gentiles ends with the Seventh Trump, but for creation, at the dawn of the new heavens and new earth).
Ephesians 1:10 is another confirmation of Brother Branham's vision wherein he was caught up into the pyramid formed by the constellation of the seven angels representing the Capstone of the fullness of the Word formed by the alignment of the seven-fold Spirit of God that anointed the Church Age Messengers and their saints. Or as Brother Branham said, The seventh angel gathers up all of the "loose ends" of Scripture left unexplained by the Reformers, and at the revelation of his Message the threefold mystery of God should be finished. The revelation of the Seven Seals brought the heavenly alignment to earth (Revelation 10:1; Jude 14) to draw us into heaven. So "the fullness of times" heralds a process commencing with the gathering together of all things which are in heaventhe seven spirits become One in Jesus, who descends to Earth in WORD form with the Church Age saints in the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 to catch up end-time Bride in the Spirit, completing and capping the Body of Christ.
At the Seventh Trump 'kairos' time (singular) ends for the Bride and the physical resurrection of the sleeping saints begins along with the manifestation of the Sons of God to receive grace for translation faith when the resurrected saints appear, and changed in the atoms, Christ's glorified Body will meet Him in the air (ibid, 31:239; Proving His Word, p. 52:271; Adoption, #III, p. 89:163,169; #IV, p. 113:69-70).
The letters of Revelation 2 and 3 were addressed to the messenger of each Age. The Spirit usually anointed a man at the end of one dispensation to correct the errors of that Age and deliver the Message for the succeeding Age. At the end of Philadelphia, however, the Holy Spirit fell on all flesh according to Acts 2:17-18. Those early Laodiceans were zealous for God but the majority not being elect, denominated, so that human wisdom and the world gradually overcame this last move of God in the Church Age.
The seventh messenger who was the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6, received his Elijah anointing after the close of Laodicea to call Christ's end-time Bride into the unity of the faith and His Message finished the age of the Church. Yet the Church Ages continue and are synonymous with the "fullness of the Gentiles" because the only way the world can come out of Laodicea is by One Spirit of this end-time Message.
Whereas Laodicea was a move of God, He is now outside, rejected and calling His Bride out of the churches' apostate condition, and this shout, "Come out of her" continues until the last predestinated one is in the Capstone Bride. Then the fullness of the Gentiles comes in and His Bride goes Home. The end-time evangelism is knocking for we are Christ's hands and His Voice is in the Bride (Revelation 3:20; 10:8-11).
Pentecost was Laodicea and it is over. (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 251:1; 556:1-2; Trying to do God a Service, p. 34:217; Recognizing Your Day and Its Message, 14:73).
The foolish virgin and others who have not entered Christ's rest can only escape their present spiritual condition by being baptized into that part of the Body God is building now. This means that once the last person predestinated to Laodicea was born-again, that part of the Body was complete and the Laodicean Church Age was over. God does not deal with two dispensations simultaneously. Laodicea and the holy convocation of the present Fiftieth Day can no more be concurrent than Old Testament Law and New Testament grace can co-exist.
Brother Branham called this present dispensation by several names:
". . . this in not Pentecost Age, this is the Bride age" (Leadership, p.20:140).
". . . we're entering another age; we're entering the raptured age" (Invisible Union of the Bride of Christ, 55:3).
". . . Watch. Luther, Wesley, Pentecost, and the Capstone, when the church and the Word becomes the same: same thing exactly, perfectly. . ." (Paradox, #64-0418B).
". . . it's got down today, not to Lutherans, not to Methodists, not to Pentecostals, but to that honed age, in this age where just the antichrist anointing is so perfectly, it would deceive the very Elected; they'll fall on the wrong side if they don't watch it, like a wedge. Watch. Be careful. We're not living in a Pentecostal age now" (Trying to do God a Service, p. 29:179).
"we're ending the Seventh Church Age, the Pentecostal Age. Do you see it? We're entering the holy convocation" (Future Home of the Heavenly Groom and the Earthly Bride, p. 30:236).
"The power of God was taken back to its original, the fiftieth day, the year of Jubilee when all things went back. Now, there will come another year of Jubilee . . . [Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:7 Ed) . . . the church is receiving . . . the revelation of Jesus Christ of the Seven Seals and not one tenth of them can receive It. But 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". (Revelation, Chapter Five, Part II, 779:180-182).
Each Church Age produced a PART of the Word but the Capstone is the WordChristand the Token is on display. The Bride is Omega and Emmanuel. No more ages, ('kairos' time), we go into eternity while Laodicea and the world remain in ('chronos') time.
In Part IV we will study "the things which will take place after the Seven Church Ages". nl340.htm
