Bible Believers' Newsletter 420
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; you are welcome.
Brother Branham taught the 'kosmos' or world order is falling apart spiritually, politically, morally and economically. "It is in this age that the churches are going to come together. And as they are even now controlling world politics, they will soon control the finances of the world. Then, if you don't belong to the world organization of churches, you won't be able to buy or to sell. You will lose all. Those who stay true to God and keep their garments clean from the defilement of this 'world-system' of church orders will be physically bereft" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 265:1).
He made the private prediction, not prophecy, "that 1977 ought to terminate the world systems and usher in the millennium" (ibid p. 322:4). This came to pass as the revelation of Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming began to unfold to Christ's end-time Bride, for it is this revelation that will "terminate the world systems and usher in the millennium" as it fulfills the "shout" and "the Voice of the Archangel" of I Thessalonians 4:16.
The world is also falling apart in the natural realm. Previous issues of this Newsletter have reported the activity of the Augustine volcano in Alaska and scores of volcanoes in the Pacific Rim. Rothschild's Reuters News Service announced on January 12, that Mount Fuji in Japan has no snow. Sections of the Amazon River have dried, polar ice caps are breaking-up, and an ongoing explosion has caused a black hole to swallow a mass of about 300,000,000 stars (The Weekend Australian, January 8-9, 2006). Chicken Little will be vindicated when the Sixth Seal manifests and "heaven departs as a scroll when it is rolled together" (Revelation 6:14).
Watch for a major catastrophe manufactured by the City to provide the United States with a pretext for aggression against Iran in order to prevent trading OPEC oil in euros, which is scheduled to begin when its new bourse opens on March 20, reducing demand for and devaluing the US dollar which is presently backed by oil as sales are denominated in US dollars. Through their central banks Rothschild's world franchise over credit and money will profit whether the dollar can, for the time being, maintain its status as the world reserve currency, or is replaced by euros, provided they are able to "manage" its demise. Only US interests and "long" positions in the dollar will suffer in any serious depreciation of the greenback (I Timothy 6:10).
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.
Evidence has surfaced indicating the inevitability of major seismic events occurring soon on the western coast of North America. These events will be caused by the aggressive use of scalar tectonic weaponr . . .
Many have heard of the infamous "Ring of Fire" . . . a ring of active volcanoes that have formed near tectonic plate margins. . . . Herein lies a part of the danger to the west coast of North America. . . Alaska has more than 40 active volcanoes located along the Ring of Fire that passes through and forms the Aleutian volcanic Islands. The area is one of constant seismic activity . . .
These events are being artificially and purposefully created with bad intent using scalar tectonic weapons technology. It's been going on for some time . . .
Many of the unusual seismograms you viewed earlier show resonant scalar tectonic attacks. The waves are at the resonant frequency of the mass being attacked. That's why they appear so big and are of one frequency. Yet, while there is a lot of movement involved, the rate of these waves is very slow, so people in the area may not notice anything different. But the net mass of the target at resonance will undergo changes in its modulus of elasticity and soften . . . producing changes in the lattice structure of the material. This sets the target area up for a disaster, or stores energy that can be moved to another target.
Imagine applying that kind of force to Mt. Rainier or the San Andreas Fault or the Philippine Sea Plate, which is jammed up against Japan. The possibilities are endless. Sometimes the targeting is indirect, you push something over here to get a result over there. In recent weeks, the Galapagos Islands and Greenland have come under scalar tectonic attacks. . . Aren't the Aleutian Islands on the Ring of Fire with all those active volcanoes and continuous seismic activity? Yes they are, and things are escalating very quickly now. Alaska is one of the places where scalar tectonic weapons are located. The factions are trying to hit each other's weapons . . .
Given the current situation, unbelievably chaotic destruction is about to occur. In the case of America, a best-case scenario would be one or more magnitude 9+ earthquakes in the Pacific Northwest. These quakes will strike near Seattle Washington and Portland Oregon, resulting in tsunamis all along the west coast. If sufficient in intensity, Mt. Rainier, already sufficiently primed, will erupt explosively. Millions could die.
In a worst-case scenario, there will be many large quakes all along the west coast, and the North American plate will shear from Puget Sound in Washington to the east of Baja in the Bay of Californiaat the shear zone north of the mid-America trench. There have already been six earthquakes in Baja this month. This plate shear will serve to ignite the eruptions of many of the volcanoes that run from Washington State through California. The Long Valley Caldera and the Yellowstone Caldera could undergo massive eruption. It will be the "Big One" that has been talked about for years, but it will not be from natural causes, unless you are watching CNN or FOX. The destruction will decimate America. Martial law will be declared immediately. America as we know it will have come to an end.
The ash and gasses from the wall of eruptions will travel eastward, forcing people to abandon their homes and flee. The economic infrastructure of America will immediately collapse, already prepared to do so from accumulated and unserviceable national debt. There will be riots and looting from lack of food and water as gasoline disappears and anarchy kicks in. The military, badly needed to restore civil order, will be in stuck in Iraq, Afghanistan and overseas bases. Then, massive seismic events will begin along the New Madrid fault and the eastern coastline of what was once America. Everything will happen according to the operational plans of the perpetrators, for they have engineered Armageddon.

Comment: As God allowed man to destroy life by the Great Flood, He will allow man to destroy life by atomic fire seven years after Los Angeles is sunk by what may well be a man-made earthquake.
In 1964 Brother Branham said, "In a few days a great earthquake's going to strike on the west. And it won't stop. California, Los Angeles will sink. It's going down. It'll slide right into the ocean." And [on Good Friday] two days after that, the Alaskan earthquake shook Alaska. It was a judgment sign" (Works is Faith Expressed, p. 8:60).
"Since that earthquake, there is a two or three-inch crack that come in the earth, starting in Alaska, goes around through the Aleutian Islands, comes out about a hundred and fifty or two hundred miles in the sea, comes back up at San Diego; takes in Los Angeles, and comes out again just below the northern part of California there, a little place called San Jose, just below there" (Ashamed, p. 9:52).
One Sunday morning in June, 1933, the Lord showed him in seven continuous visions, seven major events that would transpire before His Coming in judgment. "The last and seventh vision was wherein I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America."
". . . What is left? Nothing except Hebrews 12:26. "Whose Voice then shook the earth: but now He hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven." Once more God will shake the earth and with it shake everything loose that can be shaken. Then He will renovate it. Just last March, 1964, that Good Friday earthquake of Alaska shook the whole world though it did not unbalance it. But God was warning by a world tremor what He will soon do on a greater scale. He is going to blast and rock this sin-cursed world, my brother, my sister, and there is only one place that can stand that shock, and that is in the fold of the Lord Jesus. And I would beseech you while God's mercy is still available to you, give your whole life, unreservedly to Jesus Christ, Who as the faithful Shepherd will save you and care for you and present you faultless in glory with exceeding great joy" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:3,5).
US endorsed Iranian Plans to build Massive Nuclear Energy Industry
March 5, 2006 In 1976, President Gerald R. Ford signed a directive that granted Iran the opportunity to purchase US built reprocessing equipment and facilities designed to extract plutonium from nuclear reactor fuel.
In August 1974, the current Secretary of Defense, Donald H. Rumsfeld served as Chairman of the transition to the Presidency of Gerald R. Ford. He then became Chief of Staff of the White House and a member of the President's Cabinet (1974-1975) and was the Ford Administration’s Secretary of Defense from 1975–1977.
The current President of the World Bank, Paul Wolfowitz served in the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency under President Gerald Ford. Wolfowitz is considered as a prominent architect of the Bush Doctrine, which has come to be identified with a policy that permits pre-emptive war . . . Full story: teamliberty.net

Catholic Writers recruited to support Bush War on Iraq
In old but telling news we learn that Michael Novak was hired to undermine Pope John Paul II's position.
President Bush's Ambassador to the Holy See has asked Michael Novak to develop even further his theological theory of justification for preventive war to support Bush. Novak will present his ideas in February at a conference on the just war organized by the Ambassador. In the past several months Novak, along with fellow neo-conservative writers George Weigel and Robert Royal have been publishing their own just war theories in favor of an attack on Iraq in direct opposition to the Vatican. . .
These men, close to the Bush administration and known as Neocons, represent the most powerful hierarchy in the United States. This means power, not wisdom. Full story: Houston Catholic Worker (Vol. XXIII, No. 1, January-February 2003).
In Iraq 'Reconstruction' means New Prisons

Iran and al Qaeda benefit from US in Iraq
Washington, March 5, 2006 "The only people who want us in Iraq are Iran and al-Qaeda," Murtha said on CBS's "Face the Nation" political talk show. "And I talked to a top-level commander the other day and he said China wants us there also. Why? Because we're depleting our resources . . . our troop resources and our fiscal resources.

Negroponte's 'Serious Setback'
March 3, 2006 John Negroponte, the US National Intelligence Director, provided testimony Tuesday at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on "global threats."
Negroponte, who was the US ambassador to Iraq from June 2004 to April 2005, was immediately promoted to his current position after his presence in Iraq. Ironically, he warned the committee on Tuesday, "If chaos was to descend upon Iraq or the forces of democracy were to be defeated in that country . . . this would have implications for the rest of the Middle East region and, indeed, the world."
Warning of the outcome of a possible civil war in Iraq, Negroponte said sectarian civil war in Iraq would be a "serious setback" to the global war on terror. Notehe did not say it would be a "serious setback" to the Iraqi people, over 1,400 of whom have been slaughtered in sectarian violence touched off by the bombing of the Golden Mosque last week in Samarra.
No, the violence and instability in Iraq would be a "serious setback" to the global "war on terror."
But it's interesting for him to continue, "The consequences for the people of Iraq would be catastrophic," whilst feigning his concern. Because generating catastrophic consequences for civilian populations just happens to be his specialty.
If we briefly review the political history of John Negroponte, we find a man who has had a career bent toward generating civilian death and widespread human rights abuses, and promoting sectarian and ethnic violence.
He has been described as an "old fashioned imperialist" and got his start during the Vietnam War in the CIA's Phoenix program, which assassinated some 40,000 Vietnamese "subversives."
Negroponte's death squads used electric shock and suffocation devices in interrogations, kept their prisoners naked, and when a prisoner was no longer useful he was brutally executed.
Shiite Cleric Muqtada Al Sadr blamed the United States occupation for the current violence. . . "We say that the occupiers are responsible for such crises [as the Golden Mosque bombing] . . . there is only one enemy. The occupier." Full story: truthout.org
Be Strong and Very Courageous
Today we are at the very end of the third exodus of God's people. As Moses led natural Israel out from Egypt and into the Promised Land, and Paul led the Church out of Israel into the blessing of Abraham (Galatians 3:14), the Son of Man, Jesus Messiah, is leading His end-time Bride out of the church into the eternal land of the Millennium.
Moses typed church organization which failed God, for he took glory to himself when he struck the Rock a second time. This showed the insufficiency of PART-Word to bring the Church Age saints under preeminence to the Word so they could manifest the Sons of God and be translated without death at the resurrection of the sleeping saints. Moses' action signified the church in this day would crucify unto itself the Son of God afresh, as it is now doing, and die.
Joshua, who faithfully observed God's commandments to Moses, led the new generation of Israelites who passed over Jordan, a type of death, and into the Promised Land. He types our new leader, the Son of man, taking His end-time Bride into the eternal Land of the Millennium without death. The very name Joshua is the Hebrew form of "Jesus," and means "Jehovah-Saviour." Caleb, his faithful partner types Christ's end-time Bride who is under preeminence and will be changed in the atoms without death.
Like Israel in Egypt, the organized church has grown comfortable in this world. Indeed, without the Holy Ghost she is nothing but the world with God's Name on it. As the time for deliverance drew nigh, there arose a pharaoh who knew not Joseph, Roman Catholic President John Kennedy. But God sent the Christian prophet, William Branham, to rightly divide the Word of truth and define the inheritance of the nine dispensations in the Body of Christ, as Joshua had divided the Promised Land for an inheritance among the twelve Tribes, so the end-time Bride could recognize her rightful position and not impersonate the Word for and age gone by.
Joshua 1:1-9, "After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, God said to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, Moses My servant is dead; therefore arise, go over this Jordan, you and the whole nation of Israel, into the land which I give them. Every place on which the sole of your foot shall tread I have I given you, as I said to Moses. Your territory shall be from the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river Euphrates, including all the land of the Hittites, even to the great western sea."
"None will be able to hold out before you all the days of your life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with you: I will not fail you or forsake you. Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people you will divide for an inheritance the land, which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the Law which Moses My servant commanded you: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper everywhere you go."
"This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth; but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may be careful to do according to all that is written therein: for then you shall make your way prosperous, and have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be dismayed: for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go".
God commissioned His Prophet William Branham with this Scripture and spoke with him lip to ear from the Pillar of Fire as He spoke with Moses from the burning bush that was not consumed. Before he died, Brother Branham counseled: "Say only what the tapes say. Say what the visions say." He was instructing us to prove his Message with Scripture from Genesis to Revelation, to receive the mind of the Holy Spirit, and then follow the Son of man by understanding what He meant. Faith!
God had prophesied the length of Israel's sojourn in Egypt, and Moses, knowing he was born to be their deliverer and that the time was at hand, tried to effect their departure in his own strength by inciting rebellion and became a fugitive. We likewise see the cup of iniquity of the Amorites is full (Revelation 17:4; 18:6); we've seen the sign of Christ's second Coming, we know the rapture has been in process since 1963 and are anxious to receive rapturing faith that will unite the Bride as one and change our corruptible bodies to incorruption.
We look for the "squeeze" to tighten. It already holds our Church in its firm embrace. We also await a series of massive earthquakes in different parts of the world that will mark the end of the Gentile dispensation, herald martial law, force the "squeeze" worldwide and activate the "third pull" in the Bride.
Intellectually, we know who we are and what will take place just as Moses rationalized his calling and destiny but sought to fulfill prophecy by human logictrying to do God a service without it being His will. Yet God's work is not achieved by might and power, but by His Spirit. After forty years when Moses had learned meekness the hard way, living in the outback with his hot-tempered wife, God said, "Go, and deliver My people. I will be with you, even in you so long as you speak only the Words I reveal to you" (Exodus 4:14-15; Deuteronomy 11:25; Joshua 1:5).
Speaking God's Words in Egypt produced the ten plagues of Moses' "third pull." Seeing God confirm the Words he spoke made Moses resolute and absolutely secure in the authority of divine inspiration: bold and very courageous in exercising the "third pull" with utmost confidence in the most dire situations.
God can only declare Himself in the "third pull" when He finds someone who has cast down vain reasoning and is resting in faith. Once God demonstrated his first and second pullsturning Moses' staff into a snake and then back into a staff, and making his right hand leprous, then making it wholeall doubts were gone. Moses knew he was anointed and resolved to deliver Israel from the military Superpower of that day armed with the Word of the Lord and a crooked stick.
What Moses said God honored, because it was His mind Moses was expressing and the glory was the Lord's. But when Moses struck the Rock a second time, he took His glory to himself. We must say the right thing to God if we want Him to honor our words. Jesus has promised He will be with us, even in us to the end of the age, and if He is we will speak the truth in faith and love; only then will our Word be His mind expressed in due season with the right motive and objective. If Moses' "third pull" under the blood of bulls and goats could create billions of lice and flies and millions of frogs, then turn daylight into darkness, what will our "third pull" produce under the Blood of Christ but rapturing faith for translation from death to glorification in manifested eternal Life.
First you must have a clear revelation of your identity as a Son or Daughter of God, and know His will and purpose for you. Uncertainty will not manifest the "third pull," neither will self-confidence or bluff. God did not create the universe by chutzpah but by faith in His creative Word properly placed in its designated season. Moses knew his calling and by revelation he knew God's program and the sequence of prophetic events. He learned the hard way, that what was prophesied could not take place until every element of the vision was present. And before your expectation of the revealed Word can come to pass the details of the vision must be realized in your time-space because visions provide a glimpse of God's foreknowledge from the foundation of the world, showing you a preview of what will take place (Matthew 4:4).
Brother Branham explained this when he recalled two visions and how they were fulfilled:
"Here some time ago, you might have noticed in the paper at Denver, Colorado. They never knew what happened. The Lord had sent me over there. He showed me a place. He said, "Now, there's a place where there'll be a car parked this a way," in a vision. He said, "It's a gray car. You'll be going down the street this a way, and there's a white house. And when you look in behind there, there's a gate that opens. And there's hoe laying right down behind the gate."
And said, "There'll be a man come out and get in a car packing a briefcase. Go at the door." And said, "When you do, there'll be a woman weeping. And when you go in, lay your hat down on the bed, and then she'll pick it up and lay it over here on a television. And there'll be another lady come in with a red sweater on and set down here. Then go lay your hands on this sick baby and say, 'THUS SAITH THE LORD.'"
See? I knew what it was.
Then He showed me a man coming down. I looked, and I seen a clock. And I heard something going squeak, squeak, squeak, and I looked, and there was a man coming down in a wheelchair. That's the one the papers wrote up, in a wheelchair holding a Bible, crying. He said, "Walk out to him, and speak with him, and tell him to raise up." And said, "You'll notice that the clock, it'll be just ten minutes before three." And I got up, set about it, out of the vision.
And about two or three days after that, telegrams coming everywhere, and, "Come here to pray for this one. Come pray for that one. Come pray for this one, everywhere." You know. And after while I picked up one, and it said, "Come to Denver. A man with TB, dying. Come at once." Something just said to me, "Go."
And I didn't know where the vision was going to be. I went, got off the plane, got a cab, and went to this address, prayed for the man. Never did hear what happened. So it was a little time before the plane was going to leave, so I thought instead of calling the cab, I'll just walk down town. And I won't even think about that vision or nothing. I just knowed it was going to happen.
Started walking down the street, walking along, like that. And all at once, I heard somebody say, "Well, good-bye, Doctor," and looked around. And here come a man packing a brief case, walking down a step. And I thought, "I've seen that man somewhere. Isn't that strange?" And I looked, here sat that little gray Ford setting on this side of the street. I said, "That's the vision." And he come out. I walked on up. I said, "How do you do?"
He said, "How do you do, sir?" got in the car, drove away.
I ran over this street and looked down. There laid the hoe. I said, "This is it." Went right on up the steps, knocked at the door; lady came, she was weeping. I said, "You have a sick baby, do you, lady?"
She said, "Yes, sir." She said, "Are you a doctor?"
I said, "No, ma'am," I said, "I'm a minister."
She said, "Oh, yes, sir."
And I said, "My name is Branham. I am Reverend Branham."
She said, "I don't believe I know you, Mr. Branham."
I said, "No, I'm a stranger. Could I see your baby a minute?" She said, "Yes, sir."
I said, "Thank you." I stepped in. I asked her what was the matter; it had congested lungs, pneumonia. Little bitty fellow laying there. . . And I thought, looked in the room, just right, laid my hat down on the bed. But the lady went over and sat down; she never moved the hat. So I thought, can't say a word now, or say about the vision or nothing, just have to wait.
I just keep talking to her; never asked prayer or nothing. I said, "And your baby, how old is it? And how long you lived here?" and so forth like that. And we got to talking. Well, then she got up and got my hat after while; I'd walked over side of the bed. She got my hat and laid it over on the television, but the lady wasn't there with the red sweater on. Can't pray. See? He isn't there yet. So then I kept talking, set down again.
And then, after while, the lady come in and set down. Another lady come in, which had been out in another room, or somewhere, she come in and set down, with the red sweater on. The lady with the brown coat on got up and went out. Can't say nothing yet. Just wait there.
And when they all got setting together, just right, then I said, "Stand up just a minute." I walked over to the baby. And I said, "You don't know me. But THUS SAITH THE LORD; the baby's healed. The little baby turned over, and begin calling for its mother. That's it.
I got out of their place, and went down, started walking down; I thought, "I'll get me a cab right quick." And I ran into somebody there. And I thought, "Well, I wonder where I could catch a cab here on this corner?" I was trying to catch a cab to get out to the airport, 'cause my plane was about ready to leave. And I was trying to hail a cab like that.
And I stepped back in the side of a ten cent store there, like. And I thought, "Surely a cab come by in a minute." And I looked right across from me, and there was a clock. I thought, "It looks like I've seen that clock. Why, sure." In just a few minutes here come the squeaking of the wheelchair, and here was the man with his Bible in his hand, just exactly ten minutes to three, at perfect.
Walked out there, And I said, "Do you believe that Book you're reading?"
He said, "Yes, sir, I do."
I said, "In there holds the Words of Eternal Life."
He said, "Yes, sir. I believe that."
I said, "Did you ever read in There where Jesus heals the sick?"
He said, "Yes, sir."
I said, "Do you believe that?"
He said, "Yes, sir, I do."
I said, "In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ stand up, for THUS SAITH THE LORD, you are healed."
And he said, "You mean I can get up now?"
I said, "Get up."
And the nurse that was pushing him; she said, "Well, he can't get up."
I said, "Raise up, sir; take my word."
He said, "Who are you?"
I said, "That doesn't matter. Raise up."
He said, "Looky here, nurse." And he started running like that.
And I slipped back out of the ten cent store, went down the alley, went on the other side, and caught a cab, and went out. A piece in the paper like that, "Mystic healing of a man on the street." Never did know what happened. See? It was the Lord" (Workings of the Holy Spirit, #56-0816).
Brother Branham was demonstrating the "third pull." Like Jesus, he did nothing until the Father showed him first (John 5:19). We must be still so we can hear God speak to us and wait patiently for conditions to match His Word lest we speak in vain.
We are waiting for earthquakes to sink Los Angeles and Florida, split the Mount of Olives and ignite the Pacific ring of fire, sending tidal waves around the world. You and I can't produce these events, but I believe George II and the 'hidden hand' can, and very likely will. The evidence indicates they are working on it. Watch this space and do not leave your rest to try doing God a service without it being His will.
Brother Branham said, "Science has broke into God's great laboratory until they are going to destroy themselves."
"God always lets wisdom destroy himself. God doesn't destroy anything. Man destroys himself by wisdom as he did at the beginning, taking Satan's wisdom instead of God's Word" (Birth Pains, p. 16:1-2).
As we look upon the promises of God for this day we know the time for the close of our dispensation is at the door. However, not until all these visions and prophecies that God revealed through Brother Branham's ministry begin to come to pass will we have THUS SAITH THE LORD, "this is the day and the hour." When they actually manifest you will know that the right Words spoken under preeminence will furnish all of your needs.
No matter what the church or any other voice says, when the Scriptures come to life in the manifestation of their prophecies, look beyond your circumstances to the Promise of the "third pull," and speak the Word. If you are ordained to eternal Life you will have authority to call upon the Life of the Word to accomplish what was spoken. Faith is not restricted by natural circumstances but predicated on the Promise of God's Word.
When Pharaoh's armies had Moses and the children of Israel trapped on Nuweiba beach they became anxious for their lives, and Moses cried, "Lord, what must I do." But God had already promised "I will be with you; and this shall be a token to you, that I have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God upon this mount" Sinai in Arabia (Exodus 3:12).
God prophesied the end of the supremacy of the nation in which Moses was raised, and He has prophesied the subservience of the United States in which Brother Branham was raised. "I don't even pray for it" (Trying to do God a Service without it being the Will of God, p. 23:136). "The last and seventh vision was wherein I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:3).
In the days of Moses and the first exodus, a pharaoh rose up who did not know Joseph and in these last days a pharaoh who did not know Joseph arose in the United States, since when there has not been a Christian in the White House.
Like Moses, Christ's end-time Bride has the perfect interpretation of the revealed Word. The Pillar of Fire has returned, God has worked many signs and miracles by His prophet, for all things are possible to those who believe, and we are commissioned to "witness his Message to many peoples and nations and tongues and kings and their relationship to God" (Revelation 10:11). In the Scriptural sense of the word a prophet is one who speaks for another as Aaron is called the prophet or spokesman of Moses (Exodus 4:15-16; 7:1). The prophets of God were His spokesmen, and Christ's end-time Bride speaks for Brother Branham. We are to "prophesy again" not the "letter" so much as the revelation of His Message, which is the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6, and the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 that calls the wise and foolish virgin out from Rome and the Protestant churches (Revelation 18:4) "into the unity of the faith" (Ephesians 4:13) for the "manifestation of the Sons of God," the first resurrection and the translation (Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:47-58).
In his sermon, "And Knoweth it Not," Brother Branham interpreted a Spiritual dream for Rev. Orland Walker, in which the Prophet who was mounted on a white horse screamed, "I'll ride this trail once more!" and the whole earth shook. He is now "riding the trail once more" in the ministry of His end-time Bride who are "prophesying again" the strait and narrow way to New Jerusalem, "turning not from it to the right hand or to the left" (Joshua 1:7).
Being "in the unity of the faith" as Jesus prayed in John 17:20-26, "The Spirit and the Bride both say, Come. And let he who hears say, Come. And let he who thirsts come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of Life freely. For I testify to everyone who hears the revelation of the prophecy of this Book, (which is Brother Branham's Message as the Book was sealed to the time of the end and revealed only to the seventh angelRevelation 1:1; 10:4,7). If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this Book: and if anyone takes away from the words of the Book of this prophecy, God will 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" (Revelation 22:17-19).
The Amalekites are upon us, Brethren. They want nothing to do with our Jesus because He is the last Adam and not the last Cain: He could not be their Saviour even if they desired Him since He is not their kinsman (Leviticus 25:47-55). Thus they are at enmity with the children of the last Adam (Isaiah 53:10; 65:23) as they are with the children of the first Adam (Genesis 3:15). Yet we are commissioned to repeat the end-time Message by "proclaiming the day of vengeance of our God" (Isaiah 60:2; Revelation 10:11). To those who are able to become one with that Word as Jesus prayed in John 17:20-26, it brings eternal Life and peace; those who refuse are removed from the Book of Life (if ever they were in it) and become souls in prison now, pending annihilation in the lake of Fire.
Nothing can stand in the way of your commission, if you appropriate faith and are in the line of duty.
Exodus 14:13-16, "Moses told Israel, Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will work for you today: for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you shall never see again. The Lord will fight, and you won't need to lift a finger."
"The Lord told Moses, Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward: lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea, and divide it, that the children of Israel may go on dry ground through the midst of the sea".
Like Moses, we already have the promise and command of the Lord; let us not ask Him for what He has already given: that would be unbelief. As He said to Moses, "Why do you cry to Me? Speak the Word, and go forward"! As long as you have witness that you are called, elected and born-again, filled and led by the Spirit, and under preeminence to the Word, there is no need to pray or consult God about itHe has already given you authority by the Word of faithmove forward and fulfill your responsibility.
In Mark 11:23-24 Jesus said, "Whoever shall say to this mountain, (not pray to this mountain), Be removed and cast into the sea; and not doubt in his heart, but believe that what he says will come to pass, he shall have what he has said. Whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours".
If you ask presumptuously it won't happen, but if you have a revelation it must happen.
John 14:12-14, "He who believes on Me the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My Name, I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My Name, I will do it".
John 15:7-8, "If you abide in Me and My Words abide in you, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples".
Matthew 6:25, 32-34, "Do not be anxious for your life, what you are to eat or drink; or about your body, what you are to wear. Is not the life more important than its nourishment and the body than its clothing? . . . On all these things the pagans center their interest; and your heavenly Father knows you need them all. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. So don't be anxious about tomorrow. God will take care of tomorrow too, live one day at a time".
When Joshua was in battle against the Amorites, the Lord said, "Fear them not: I have delivered them into your hand; not a man of them shall stand before you" (Joshua 10:8). This is the revelation on which Joshua based his "third pull." Night was falling, but Joshua needed more time, "and he prayed aloud before the eyes of Israel: Sun, stand still over Gibeon, and Moon, wait in the valley of Ajalon. And the Sun stood still, and the Moon stayed, until Israel had destroyed its enemies" (Joshua 10:12-13). God cast down great hailstones from heaven as the Amorites fled, and more of the enemy perished by the hailstones than Israel slew with the sword.
Joshua was commissioned, he was in the line of duty fulfilling a revelation from the Lord, and he had a need, so he spoke the Word and God did what he had said because he had the mind of the Lord.
On a hunting trip, and separated from his brethren, the sleet, snow and wind of an approaching blizzard caused Brother Branham to retreat to the creek by way of which he would be able to find his way back to camp when his visibility was impeded. Half way down the mountain a Voice said, "Stop and go back." He retraced his steps and "after waiting a few minutes and just as plain as I've ever want to hear, a Voice said, "I am the Creator of heavens and earth. I make the wind and the rain."
I took off my hat; I said, "Great Jehovah, is that You?"
He said, "I was the One Who made the winds to cease upon the sea. I was the One Who made the waves to go down. I created heavens and earth. Was not I the One that told you to speak for squirrels and they came into existence? I am God."
Now, when a voice speaks to you, watch the Scripture. If it's not Scriptural, you leave it alone; I don't care how plain it is; you stay away from it.
I said, "Yes, Lord."
He said, "Speak to those winds and that storm, and it'll go away." Now, this Bible lays before me, which my life is in That.
I raised up; I said, "I do not doubt Your Voice, Lord." I said, Clouds, snow, rain, sleet, I resent your coming. In the Name of Jesus Christ, go to your places. I say that the sun must come out immediately and shine for four days till our hunting trip is over and I leave with my brethren."
It was just gushing, just going "Whooosssh," like that. And it started going, "Whoosh"; and then went "whew, whew, whew, whew." Stopped. . . I stood real still. My brethren up there, wondering what was happening. And the sleet and rain stopped. There came a wind whirling down through the mountain, lifted up the clouds, and one went this way: east, north, west, and south. And within a few minutes, the sun was shining nice and warm. That's truth. God knows that's truth. I just stood there, just looking around with my hat off, looking.
"I got numb all over. I thought, "The very God of creation, it's all in His hand. What's He telling me?"
And I picked up my gun, wiped off the scope, started walk back, go down the hill. And Something said to me, "Why don't you stroll with Me through this wilderness, walk with Me?"
I said, "Yes, Lord, with all my heart, would be one of the greatest things I could do was walk with You." So I put my gun over my shoulder, and I started walking down through that (never a axe laid in it), virgin timber, walking through there".
The prophet did not speak presumptuously. He was in the will of the Lord, he spoke by revelation of the Lord, and God did what he had said. That was the "third pull".
We know the "third pull" as the manifestation of the Spoken Word, but it is more common than you have ever considered. Nothing need be said, for the "third pull" is the manifestation of the mind of God when our heart is at one with Him.
Acts 5:12-16, "Many signs and wonders were done among the people by the apostles for they were all in one accord in Solomon's porch. The unconverted dared not join them, but held them in high esteem. And more and more believers were added to the Lord, multitudes of men and women, so that they brought their sick into the streets and laid them on rugs and mats so that, as Peter passed by, at least his shadow might fall on some of them. And crowds gathered from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing the sick, and those afflicted with unclean spirits: and they were all healed".
How were these people healed? By exercising faith they came into agreement with the mind of the Lord and received the grace of the Lord who is "not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance." The atonement is twofoldphysical healing of the body and remission of past sins (Isaiah 53:5). If we align our heart and life with God's revealed Word for our hour and situation, what we desire must come to pass because we are only asking for what we are.
Often when Brother Branham was praying for a patient on the platform, the Lord would identify others in the auditorium who were suffering from the same disease or need, and pronounce them whole. How was this? Scripture tells us "the Word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than a two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart" (Hebrews 4:12).
The Word is God's thoughts, and since God is eternal and omniscient, His thoughts are complete and cannot be added to or diminished (Deuteronomy 12:32; Revelation 22:18-19). The hearts of those in the congregation who were in empathy with the plight of the patient because they were suffering from the same complaint, were raised to faith and expectation, knowing that the God who discerned and healed the sickness in the patient was also aware of their need, and could heal them as well.
All things are possible if we believe and agree with the Lord God. We must recognize and work within His Spiritual laws if we want His will to live through our life, just as we must learn and comply with the laws of nature if we are to prosper in this world.
I learnt a great deal about nature from the Jewish skipper of one of the yachts on which I sailed. Alan knew the sea, and 'Hurricane' was rigged for solo sailing. Instead of a tiller or wheel it had a joystick, and the halyards, sheets and braces, etc., all came aft to the cockpit. I learned the necessity of working with wind, current and wave to ensure safe passage and a happy landfall, for nature is more powerful than any vessel; to defy her is to court disaster, for God's laws are in nature. So the natural types the Spiritual.
Matthew 16:1-4, "The Pharisees and the Sadducees approached, and asked Jesus to show them a sign from heaven, to test him".
Let us not be like these unbelievers who never received faith although Jesus performed so many signs and wonders. All the signs God promised us in this day have already been displayed in the heavens and in the ministry of Brother Branham. God has confirmed His promises to us, let us take Him at His Word and advance.
"Jesus answered and said, When it is evening, you say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. You hypocrites, you can interpret the face of the sky; but you cannot discern the Scriptural signs of the times! A wicked and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. And He just walked away from them," for the election was off.
If we cannot take God at His Word which He has vindicated before us in this day by many signs and wonders and miracles, and express it in our lives and lips, the election is off, and He has walked away from us.
Our generation has seen all manner of natural, Scriptural signs. The world is in a Sodom condition, and as it was in the days of Lot, three messengers have visited our Gentile civilization. God veiled Himself behind one man and discerned the thoughts and intents of the heart, revealing Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever, while the other two preached a basic salvation message to the churches in Sodom (Luke 17:28-30).
People are "running to and fro" traveling the globe; knowledge has increased, and the Son of man has returned, but the wicked continue to do wickedly, and although both the wise and foolish virgin have been called out of the denominations, only the wise will understand (Daniel 12:4-10).
The Pillar of Fire and Cloud has been seen by millions, and photographed (Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7). The dead have been restored to life, cripples made whole, the blind have received sight, and demons cast out (Luke 17:28-30). The third pull has manifest, opening Seven Seals and finishing the mystery of God for the believer. The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in WORD form, "as a thief in the night," but only His Bride can see Him, because only God's elect can understand His Word (John 3:3).
Signs, signs. "A wicked and adulterous generation seeks for a sign," but where is faith? When the sign is given they do not believe.
Israel is in the Homeland, we live in an amoral and immoral scientific age "like the days of Noah." People scoff at the righteous as they did then but you will know the awesome vindication of God's prophet when Los Angeles sinks beneath the sea, comparable only to the Flood that vindicated Enoch's ministry (Matthew 24:32-42). This will signify that the "third pull" is in effect for the Bride alone: speak the Word, press forward, be strong and very courageous. nl420.htm
