President John F. Kennedy certainly receives a bad press within the circle of this Message but he recognized the enemies of America and the world in the natural sphere. Listen as he speaks on Secret Societies and Freedom of the Press. How would JFK view today's "false flag" airlines scare to detract attention from Israel's slaughter in Lebanon, and the City of London's slaughter in Afghanistan and Iraq?
Christ's promise is "to him that overcometh." The overcomer is the Christian who comes off victorious over all His foes, holding fast his faith even unto death against the power of his foes and temptations and persecutions. And when he is arraigned or goes to law to win the case and maintain the cause, stands with the Token on display. One could hardly find a more fitting example of faith, virtue, Godly knowledge, temperance, patience, Godliness, brotherly kindness and love than that represented in the Great Pyramid. It is God's second Bible and a prophetic memorial to the overcomer in every age. Built by Enoch before the Flood, it has stood the test of time and portrays New Jerusalem: Jesus Christ and His Bride with the household of saints overshadowed by the Shekinah. Like the Royal Household, in their mortal sojourn the Great Pyramid has endured the elements and insidious attacks of the cowan and intruder. Holding dominion over the center of the Earth it signifies our destiny.
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.

Presbyterian Church publishes 9/11 Conspiracy Theory
August 8, 2006 The decision by the 160-year-old Westminster John Knox Press, the trade and academic publishing imprint of the Presbyterian Publishing Corp., to attribute the attacks on the World Trade Center brings into the US religious mainstream a conspiracy theory long held by the world's jihadists.
In "Christian Faith and the Truth behind 9/11: A Call to Reflection and Action," author David Ray Griffin calls the United States the world's chief embodiment of demonic power," and says he initially scoffed at 9/11 conspiracy theories.
But after investigating he concluded that the Twin Towers were brought down by controlled demolition, military personnel were given stand-down orders not to intercept hijacked flights and the 9/11 Commission, ostensibly created to uncover the truth behind the events of 9/11, "simply ignored evidence" that the administration was involved in the attacks.
Griffin further asserts that such events such as that of 9/11 are part of a long history of "false-flag attacks," attacks orchestrated by governments against their own people to garner popular support for military action.
Griffin is a professor at California's Claremont School of Theology and Claremont Graduate University, and a codirector of the Center for Process Studies. Full story: malaysiasun.com
New and Unknown Deadly Weapons used by Israeli Forces
August 7, 2006 By now there are countless reports, from hospitals, witnesses, armament experts and journalists that strongly suggest that in the present offensive of Israeli forces against Lebanon and Gaza 'new weapons' are being used.
New and strange symptoms are reported amongst the wounded and the dead.
Bodies with dead tissues and no apparent wounds; 'shrunken' corpses; civilians with heavy damage to lower limbs that require amputation, which is nevertheless followed by unstoppable necrosis and death; descriptions of extensive internal wounds with no trace of shrapnel, corpses blackened but not burnt, and others heavily wounded that did not bleed.
Many of these descriptions suggest the possibility that the new weapons used include 'direct energy' weapons, and chemical and/or biological agents, in a sort of macabre experiment of future warfare, where there is no respect for anything: International rules (from the Geneva Convention to the treaties on biological and chemical weapons), refugees, hospitals and the Red Cross, not to mention the people, their future, their children, the environment, which is poisoned through dissemination of Depleted Uranium and toxic substances released after oil and chemical depots are bombed. . .

When the Skies rain Death
The culture of the fighter plane is the culture of annihilation.
The fighter plane is the quintessence of modern civilisation, the modern goddess. It is the product of the collective input of all the sciences and the neutralisation of all morals and values. In it converge the laser, micro-optics, microelectronics and high-tech aerodynamics, allowing precision flying, hairline guidance, dead-on targeting and surgical destruction. It is hygienic and ultra-precise and its factories, hangars and assembly plants are as tall and spacious as cathedrals. These planes are only manufactured in the most industrially developed states, assembled by huge corporations whose employees inhabit equality-oriented societies and receive high salaries. They can only be piloted by highly qualified individuals. They are simultaneously a product of absolute individualism and institutionalised collective labour. The employees who contribute to their manufacture embody societies that have achieved much; they are the elite, a cut above the rest . . .
Israel was built on targeting civilians. In 1948 it targeted them in order to displace them and usurp their land. It targeted entire villages it alleged were fedayeenresistance fighterbases. The "strategy" was founded upon two tenets: the need to deter civilians from supporting the resistance, which is to say to repress the expression of any political or social position, and the need to feed and quench the Israeli thirst for revenge. This two-pronged military creed was epitomised by Unit 101, led by Ariel Sharon in the early 1950s. It raided villages, blew up houses and slaughtered the residents. Among the most notorious fruits of this philosophy were the massacres of Qubya, Nahalin and Al-Bureij in the fifties, and the massacres of Jabalya, Beit Hanoun, Al-Shajaiya, Qasba in Nablus and Jenin in more recent times. To perform these deeds Israel needed butchers, though it called them "legendary warriors". It was a hands-on approach. It did not involve F-16s, just spoiled youths of the appropriate religious affiliation with hearts set on an American consumerist lifestyle.
Israel is deliberately targeting civilians in Lebanon, capitalising on an expedient moment. Its aims are to punish anyone who might have supported the resistance, to displace civilians northward in order to aggravate sectarian tensions in the country and to quench its barbaric thirst for revenge. The current attack, in all its ferocity and with its toll of innocent victims, was planned well in advance, with malice aforethought. Israel is a terrorist state. The diabolical logic of this state is actively supported by another terrorist state led by George Bush, a very dangerous, pathologically violent and sadistic man surrounded by a gang of cool and calculating Machiavellians and apologists for state terrorism. They ardently believe that civilians who don't own fighter planes are so far down the rungs of the ladder in the survival of the fittest that if they die, well that's their own fault, a result of their own lack of realism.

US/Israeli Kain versus the Lebanese Abel Shame on the Warmongering Propaganda Media
August 06, 2006 The ethnic cleansing of Lebanon, and the grabbing of land and Litani water by the US/Israeli war machine'debated' in the US/Israel-managed United Nations' so-called 'Security' Councilis a shame for all involved who do not protest this bellicose disaster. Their names will be remembered for the war crimes tribunals to come: after the Nuremberg Tribunals the NAZI warmongers and their propagandists were hanged by the 'Americans' for their crimes against humanity. Are the henchmen going to commit suicide now by hanging themselves?
Staggering examples of how the mainstream media in the warmongers' propaganda channels, also via the pro-Israel Google selection on Internet, are spreading and brainwashing people concerning the US/Israeli holocaust in Lebanon. Nearly all their propaganda sewersin most countriesusing the same stories with the same headlines and the same lies.
Today the health of Cuban leader Fidel Castro gets 2,473 related articles, while the illegal and inhuman slaughter in Lebanon, the bombings, death and destruction by Israel's IDF and other mercenaries goes on, and this Sunday morning gets only half (1,197) of the global 'coverage' as dictated by the malignant media moguls. With the open support of the US, the 'London War Lords' managing England's war criminal Tony Blair and the cowards and collaborators in the Quisling group called the 'Coalition of the Killing'. . .

Not all displaced Palestinians are Muslims
Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ" is playing to full houses in the Syrian capital Damascus. Watching it here turns out to be much the same as watching it on opening night in New Yorkcustomarily rowdy moviegoers observe a reverent silence, the usual sound of candy wrappers is replaced by sobbing and gasping, and, at the end of it all, the audience files out of the theater in silence and contemplation.
Many of those watching the movie on this occasion are Palestinian Christian refugees whose parents or grandparents were purged from their homelandthe land of Christat the foundation of Israel in 1948. For them the movie has an underlying symbolic meaning not easily perceived in the West: not only is it a depiction of the trial, scourging, and death of Jesus, it is also a symbolic depiction of the fate of the Palestinian people. "This is how we feel," says Zaki, a 27-year old Palestinian Christian whose family hails from Haifa. "We take beating after beating at the hands of the world, they crucify our people, they insult us, but we refuse to surrender" . . . Full story: amconmag.com
Death Squad Democracy
March 20, 2006 In Max Fuller's seminal article "For Iraq, the 'Salvador Option' becomes Reality" the author disproves the idea "that sectarianism is a sufficient explanation for the violence in Iraq." Instead, Fuller says it is "structurally at the hands of the state as part of the ongoing economic subjugation of Iraq." Full story: globalresearch.ca
It is simply impossible to grasp what is taking place in Iraq without reading Fuller's well-documented article. His clear-eyed analysis is invaluable in making sense of the apparent chaos:
"In Iraq the war comes in two phases. The first phase is complete: the destruction of the existing state, which did not comply with the interests of British and American capital. The second phase consists of building a new state tied to those interests and smashing every dissenting sector of society. Openly, this involves applying the same sort of economic shock therapy that has done so much damage in swathes of the Third World and Eastern Europe. Covertly, it means intimidating, kidnapping and murdering opposition voices" . . . Full story: countercurrents.org countercurrents.org
Lobbying for Armageddon

Iran signs $2.7bln Refinery Deal with China
LONDON, August 1 OPEC member Iran has signed a 2.7-billion-dollar oil refinery upgrade deal with China which will help feed the Islamic republic's hunger for fuel . . . Under the accord, a consortium led by Chinese firm Sinopec will upgrade capacity at a refinery in the central Iranian city of Arak from the current 150,000 barrels of crude oil per day to 250,000 barrels.
"Currently, Arak refinery produces about six million liters (1.6 million gallons) of petrol a day and when the upgrade operation is done the figure will reach about 16 million liters (four million gallons)," said deputy oil minister in charge of refining affairs. . . Full story: iranmania.com
Time to Shake Up the Anti-War Movement
In what country would a huge peace coalition hold an anti-war rally that has nothing to say about Iran, Israel and Palestine or Afghanistan?
Is the answer Israel? Turkey? Micronesia?
Sadly it was the USA.
On April 29 United for Peace and Justice held a big demonstration in New York City called "March for Peace, Justice and Democracy." THE ONLY "PEACE" DEMAND MENTIONED WAS BRINGING TROOPS HOME FROM IRAQ.
The silence about Iran is staggering. On April 9 the Washington Post reported on US military planning for an attack. It includes this sentence, "Pentagon planners are studying how to penetrate eight-foot-deep targets and are contemplating tactical nuclear devices".
Contemplating? We're not talking about mediation here, but dropping "tactical" Hiroshima-size atomic bombs.

Thousands of Troops say they Won't Fight
Since 2000, about 40,000 troops from all branches of the military have deserted. Those who help war resisters say desertion is more prevalent than the military has admitted. "They lied in Vietnam with the amount of opposition to the war and they're lying now," said Eric Seitz, an attorney who represents Army Lt. Ehren Watada, the first commissioned officer to refuse deployment to the war in Iraq. Full story: airforcetimes.com
People who worry about the future need to realize that it has been here for a long time.
While many doctors and others who supposedly work for the public good sit someplace as I write this, complacent and self-satisfied, financially more than comfortable and with egos intact, thousands sit crying, wondering whether they can go on another day or night because they are so sick. Thousands of people as you read this feel as if there are hundreds of wasps stinging them all over their bodies; thousands of people are having up to their tenth course of diarrhea for the day; thousands of people cannot read or even watch TV because their sight is going; thousands of people have no hair on their heads.
If you are reading this late at night, say, around midnight, know that there are many, many people shopping at all-night stores because their faces are so disfigured by lesions that they do not want any more people to see them than necessary.
While you sit with your families, know that many people sit alone because their own families are afraid to be near them and catch whatever this is, or because they make their families stay away so as not to give it to them.
If you are a veterinarian in your local feed store buying supplies, the person next to you buying Ivermectin for horses might be buying it for themselves, because in spite of the fact that their doctor cannot or will not diagnose or treat them, and in spite of the fact that they have begged their doctor for parasitic medicine, they have been told that "we do not have parasites in this country" or that they are delusional.
As you read this in your warm and safe home, know that people are receiving foreclosure notices because they are too sick to work and, without a diagnosis cannot get disability or financial aid.
As you go forth in the world with confidence and self-esteem intact, know that many, many people venture out in shame because they are disfigured and sick, and have been told that they are delusional while continuing to suffer from all too real physical symptoms caused by a disease that does not exist in America.
Then think about the news stories concerning biological warfare and Cloning and the environment. Think about the fact that many environmental pollutants are tiny and spore-like and that the ash from Mt. St. Helen's traveled around the world three times. Think about the garbage, filled with living organisms, floating in waters that eventually merge. Think about the big pharmaceutical companies and large health agencies here in American who have experimented and purposefully caused diseases, for which the drug companies then develop cures and are applauded for their humanitarianism (see mycoplasma experiments, Merck, CDC and NIH by the Scott brothers, Canada). Think about the fact that when large numbers of feed animals are crowded together in huge feedlots, infection and parasites increase, as do flies who carry disease and waste that travels as dust through the air you breathe.
Would you be surprised to read that many diseases, such as MS and Aids, can be caused on purpose? Would you be upset that a simple tribe of people living in Hawaii (the Fior) were experimented on and almost wiped out, and then when their disease was "discovered" someone involved in causing the disease won a Nobel Peace Prize for their work on this? These people were given the equivalent of mad cow disease and the brains of 65% of them turned to mush. There is now mad deer disease, mad elk disease and more.
There is research being done. There are still a few people in America who give a damn. The hordes of people who are suffering with this will not quit or give in and die off. We will keep writing to our officials and to anyone else we can think of. We will organize and put pressure on where it is needed. Full story: curezone.com

A Jesuit Anniversary
August 9, 2006 The Jesuits are celebrating a big anniversary this year: its 450 years since the death of their founder, St. Ignatius Loyola in 1556, and 500 years since the birth of two of the order's other great founding saints, Francis Xavier and Peter Faber.
The Society of Jesus has been described as 'the most successful organisation in Western history.' Between the formal approval for the establishment of the order by Pope Paul III in 1540 and its suppression by order of Pope Clement XIV in 1773, the Society of Jesus represents not just the Catholic Church at the height of its game, but a concentration of individual and organisational genius unparalleled in Europe since ancient times.
The Jesuits spearheaded the counter-reformation in Europe, and took the gospel to India, China, Japan, Northern Africa and North and South America. In 1548, just eight years after the order was founded, St Francis Xavier was stepping off a boat in Yokahama speaking Japanese, and 30 years later the Jesuits were governing the city of Nagasaki. They came within a hair's breadth of converting the Grand Mogul Akhbar in India, and the Emperors of China and Japan.
They brought the umbrella back from China; they sailed up the Mississippi and discovered the Great Lakes. It's been argued that it's because of the Jesuits that the United States Constitution came to include the principle of religious tolerance . . .
And it's arguable that the single greatest catastrophe ever to befall the Catholic church is that Pope Clement XIV suppressed the order in 1773 just as the French Revolution was about to hit, leaving the church without the one source of sensible, forward-looking advice that it needed to navigate its way into the modern world.
. . . in the 1970s the great Jesuit General, Pedro Arrupe embraced the principle of liberation theology . . . the Jesuit General for the past 25 years, Peter Hans Kolvenbach and the much anticipated general congregation which the order is planning for next year, where they'll elect a new leaders and plan their strategy for the years ahead. . .

The Spoken Word Tabernacle
I once worked out of Spoken Word Tabernacle in Wichita, Kansas, pastored by (the late) Walter Higgins who appropriately redefined the word "beatitude" or "blessedness" to mean "let this be your attitude." With this new definition and our inheritance in mind we will read the first and third beatitudes from Christ's sermon on the M ount to establish a context for this Message.
Matthew 5:3, "Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." This blessing is to those who feel themselves insufficient, being destitute of a wealth of learning and academic culture"ignorant and unlearned men"as Caiaphas and his officers considered Peter and John (Acts 4:13). This consciousness of a deep, inexpressible want of the Spirit and longing for a closer relationship with our Lord is the contra pole of the Laodicean condition of this present world which majors on scientific learning and worldly approval with the objective of personal prestige and material advantage (Revelation 3:17).
Matthew 11:25, 29-39, "Jesus said, I thank You, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and revealed them to untaught and unskilled babes as will learn . . . Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light".
Persons of the untaught class most readily give themselves up to Christ's teaching and prove themselves fitted to lay hold of the heavenly treasure. They have no status in life, no certificates of learning to uphold and are not burdened with the weight of this world like Atlas or Sisyphus. Their desire is righteousness, to receive correction where they are in error, trusting in the Lord to lead and guide them.
Matthew 5:5, "Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth".
Meekness toward God is that disposition of spirit in which we accept His dealings with us as good, and therefore without disputing or resisting. In the Old Testament, the meek were those wholly relying on God rather than their own strength to defend them against injustice. Numbers 12:3, "Moses was very meek, (humble and gentle), more than any other man on Earth".
Thus, meekness toward evil people means knowing God is permitting the injuries they inflict, that He is using them to purify His elect, and that He will deliver His elect in His time (Isaiah 41:17; Luke 18:1-8). Gentleness or meekness is the opposite of self-assertiveness and self interest. It stems from trust in God's goodness and control over the situation. The gentle person is not occupied with self at all. This quality is a work of the Holy Ghost, not of the human will (Galatians 5:23).
Zechariah 4:6, "The angel said, This is the Word of the Lord to Zerubbabel, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of hosts".
Our late Brother Dave Hatch was a meek man who assisted this Church to enter cyberspace with Bible Believers BBS, and Brethren who came to the Lord through the BBS worship with us to this day. Dave told me Brother Branham was so meek, one was not conscious of his presence on the platform. He testified of a miracle God performed in him through his ministry.
The Prophet said, "By a Divine gift, if I can just get myself out of the way, let the Holy Spirit say what He wants to do, and do what He wishes to do. Now, that's a gift, not just imaginary. And if it's imaginary, it won't work. If it is real, it works. That's what Jesus said, "It's not Me that doeth the works; it's My Father that dwelleth in Me." So it couldn't be me. He was the Son of God; I'm a sinner saved by His grace.
In order to receive the kingdom of heaven, which is the kingdom of God, we must be "poor in spirit" to be able to surrender human reasoning and receive the mind of Christ by a clear understanding of the revealed Word of God. As Jesus explained to the Pharisees who were full of intellectual learning: "The coming of the Kingdom of God is not something that can be observed like the entrance of a victorious king and his host into a conquered city, their banners flying. Neither is the Kingdom of God a piece of geography over here or over there, for the Kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:20-21).
The Kingdom of God is a revelation. It is the new birth which was potentially in the souls of all who had received the Gospel before Calvary and Pentecost. Only the meek can receive it. The rest of the world live in their own strength and are so busy pursuing worldly agendas they cannot hear the Voice of the Lord.
II Peter 3:10-16, "(In spite of the mockers, and notwithstanding the delay), the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works therein (trees, plants, minerals, animals, cities, houses, provisions, instruments, etc.,) shall be burned up. Since all these things are to be dissolved, how consecrated and reverent ought our behavior to be, prayerfully and zealously expecting and hastening on the coming of the day of God, on account of which the heavens will be on fire and be dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt like wax (as our igneous rocks were once in a liquid state) and disappear with the flames."
"Nevertheless in accord with His promise we look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness is at home. Therefore, beloved, since you have these expectations, do your utmost to be found at peace with Himwithout spot and blameless. And count the continued patience of our Lord the foundation of your salvation (and of those yet to be gathered into the Church: whereas those scoffers "account it as slackness" on the Lord's part II Peter 3:9), as our beloved brother Paul also has written to you according to the wisdom granted to him (I Corinthians 3;10), speaking of these things as he does in all his epistles (which were by this time the common property of all of the churches), in which some statements are hard to understand. The unlearned and unstable twist those writings, as they do the other Scriptures to their own destruction." (Paul's Epistles were by this time recognized in the Church as Scripture).
Those whose attitude is "poor in spirit" and not puffed up with intellectual knowledge, and who are "meek," resting in the Lord (Romans 8:28), have invested their heart's treasures in the promise of renewed heavens and a renewed earth where righteousness is at home.
Sin placed man in the cycle of time, but Ephesians 1:10-11 says, "In the dispensation of the fullness of times God will unite all things in Christ, things in heaven, and things on earth. And in Christ we too were made God's heritage, being predestinated according to the purpose of He who accomplishes all things according to the counsel of His own will." So our journey through time makes it possible for God in longsuffering patience to display His attributes of mercy, judgment, salvation, healing, provision, Fatherhood, Sonship, Redeemer, in His Family, and gather glory to Himself when His Character is reflected in Jesus Christ and His children.
The story of redemption began outside the garden of Eden when God placed Adam and Eve under the blood of two innocent lambs but the saints and the saved must each fulfill their part in the cycle of time before creation can return to the holy convocation whence our first parents were evicted by sin.
The Gentile Church has completed its cycle through the "fullness of times" and is in an eighth day holy convocation as the fiftieth day of the Pentecostal Feast. Laodicea was a type of sabbath wherein the "loose ends" of the works of the previous six Church Ages were gathered in by the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 to restore the faith once delivered to the apostolic saints, as on the sabbath day the Israelites in their journey through the wilderness ate of the manna gathered on the sixth day. The revelation of the Seven Seals in the fullness of the seven times or Church Ages brought Christ back to Earth in Word form. There was no further delay required for Mediation in behalf of the PART-Word saints (Revelation 10:6). Christ's Bride is now waiting in the Presence of the Son-Light for Israel's Seventh Trumpet to call the resurrection, the manifestation of the Sons of God and our translation to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the Sky.
God allowed the "traditions of the Elders" or Talmud, which Jesus said "makes the Word of God of no effect" to blind Israel to the Good News (Matthew 15:1-9). Today He has allowed Gentiles who have heard and ignored the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6, which is the "Shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16, Revelation 18:4, Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7, to be blinded by their traditions and apostatize. Brother Branham's Message is God's last warning before Tribulation judgments fall upon all outside Israel. She still has the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week in which to catch up spiritually with Christ's Church and fulfill the sixfold purpose of Gabriel's instructions to Daniel.
The antitype of Israel's feast of Trumpets will be the ministry of two Hebrew prophets in the Spirit and power of Moses and Elijah revealing their Seven Trumpet mysteries during the first three and a half years of Daniel's Seventieth Week. This holy convocation is called "a memorial of blowing of Trumpets" during which their two witnesses will bring to remembrance and explain the Seven Trumpets of judgment upon Israel for rejecting and crucifying Jesus Messiah, their Passover Lamb, and call them to mourn their Atonement.
These seven last judgments, "seven times more for your sins," followed Calvary and terminate with Armageddon after the 144,000 are blessed with regeneration on the "thousand three hundred and thirty-fifth day" (Daniel 12:12; Revelation 7:3; 11:13b). Their new birth will fulfill the mourning of Israel's Day of Atonement (Leviticus 23:26-32; Zechariah 12:10 14:8). Thereafter they will be martyred (Revelation 6:11; 14:1-5, 13).
The Tribulation period will purge the 144,000 to bring them into line with the "common faith" so they can return to Earth with us for the thousand years of peace when the Kingdom is restored to Israel with the King of Peace enthroned as Son of David and His Bride beside Him. This will be man's seventh day of a thousand years, a sabbath through which God's people will live in His sight, take dominion over the Earth and not see death.
The foolish virgin and other classes of the "saved" will also be purged and martyred during the Tribulation to prepare them for the general resurrection and White Throne Judgment that follows the Millennium. They will be judged by the saints and granted into eternal Life as kingdom subjects for the eighth day, which is eternity after Earth has been redeemed.
When Adam took back his adulterous wife he forfeited his dominion over nature. Thus cursed, Earth was subject to Satan's governance and has suffered for six days of a thousand years while man labors against sin. In contrast to the destructive effects of the day of the Lord, Earth will be purged and cleansed for the Millennium when the atomic fires of Armageddon destroy all life and melt the elements. However, that cannot destroy Satan and his angels who will be present throughout the Millennium but in bondage as their subjects are in the grave. At the general resurrection after the Millennium they will seek to deceive the non-elect once more. However, they have no hold over the glorified saints.
Following the White Throne Judgment heavens and Earth will receive their baptism with the Holy Ghost and Fire to renew them for the eternal holy convocation of the eighth day where all of God's new creation is aligned in perfect harmony and the absolute of Ephesians 1:10 realized. "The fullness of times" is realized in eternity with the resurrection and "restitution of all things spoken by the mouth of God's holy prophets since the world began" (Acts 3:21).
The inheritance of the saints is not somewhere in the sky but here on this Earth which is being redeemed and restored by the same threefold process by which God is redeeming His people. It was justified and baptized under Noah's Flood, sanctified by the blood of Christ falling upon it, and its baptism with the Holy Ghost shall destroy Satan and his angels, while fire will purify and renew Earth's structure so as to be the renovated abode of regenerated man, wholly freed from the curse.
As we read of this restored heavens and earth in Revelation 21:1-2, remember that John represents Christ's end-time Bride so you should replace his name with your own name.
"I (your name here) saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I (your name here) saw the holy city, New Jerusalem (Christ's Bride with the saints of all Ages), coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband".
This Scripture is based on Isaiah 65:17-25, "Behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former things not be remembered or come into mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in My creation: for I will recreate Jerusalem as a place of rejoicing, and her people a joy. I too will rejoice in Jerusalem, and delight in My people; and the voice of weeping and crying will not be heard there anymore."
"No longer will babies die when only a few days old, or old men not fulfill their days: for the child shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner an hundred years old shall be accursed." (This is hyperbole as there will be no babies and no sinners, for we will all be in the prime of ageless eternal Life. There will be no sickness, curse or death).
"They shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat their fruit. They shall not build, and another inhabit, nor plant and another eat: for the days of My people will be like the perpetual lifetime of a tree, and My elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labour in vain for enemies to devour their harvests, nor bring forth children for sudden terror; for they are the seed of the blessed of the Lord, Jesus Messiah, and their offspring with them"our converts in fulfillment of God's Commandment in Genesis 1:28, "be fruitful and multiply and fill the Earth".
The battle will be over then and we will share the victory of Christ our Lord. There we will build free from mortgages, theft, storm and tempest. Keep the faith in patience and you will realize all of your desires, "For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." With eternal Life in glorified flesh we will enjoy the fruits of our labors without fear of sickness, accident, fire or the infirmity of age. Having been fruitful in multiplying the Kingdom through the Spoken Word of God we are predestined to "subdue the Earth, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth".
"And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. (But of course: we have the mind of the Lord). The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, the lion shall eat straw like the bullock, and dust shall be the serpent's food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, says the Lord".
God's holy mountain is the future home of the earthly Bride and the Heavenly Groom, an elevated Zion fifteen hundred miles square and fifteen hundred miles high as represented by the Great Pyramid of Giza. This Mount Zion will rise over the renewed earth after the Millennium and the White Throne Judgment, and New Jerusalem will descend from God out of heaven and rest upon that sacred mount throughout eternity.
When Moses dedicated the tabernacle in the wilderness the Pillar of Fire overshadowed the tent and the Shekinah filled the tabernacle indicating God had taken his abode with His people (Exodus 40:34-38). When Solomon dedicated the temple and the priests brought the Ark of the Covenant, a type of Christ, into the Holy of Holies, the Pillar of Cloud filled the house with the glory of the Lord (I Kings 8:7-11).
Acts 17:24, "God made the world and everything in it, and since He is Lord of heaven and earth, He does not live in temples made with hands; and human hands cannot serve himas if He lacked anything, seeing He is the giver of life and breath and all things to every one".
Hebrews 10:5-7, "Consequently, when Messiah came into the world, He said, Sacrifices and offerings You have not desired, but You have prepared My body to lay as a sacrifice upon Your altar. You were not satisfied with burnt offerings and sin offerings. Then I said, See, I have come to do Your will, O God, as it is written of Me in Psalm 40:6-8, that I should die for the sins of the world, in order that all who believe may be saved, not by animal sacrifices, but by My death as their kinsman Redeemer."
After John had washed and dedicated the Sacrifice to God, heavens opened a vision as promised (John 1:31-33) and he saw the Shekinah in the form of a dove descend and remain upon Jesus while a Voice confirmed, "This is He who will baptize with the Holy Ghost." The unchanging God indicated by the same sign this Jesus is His true Temple not made with human hands, the beginning of God creating Himself a part of His creation in whom He has taken His abode (Revelation 3:14; Matthew 3:17).
Acts 2:1-3, "On the fiftieth day of Pentecost the believers were gathered in one mind in the upper room when suddenly there came a roaring from heaven like the rush of a mighty wind; it filled the whole house where they were meeting, and the Shekinah appeared as tongues of Fire resting upon each one of them." The unchanging God indicated by the same sign He has taken abode in the Temple of Christ's Bride, for through the invisible union the two are one.
We are not another creation but the continuation of the creation of God in the last Adam as Eve was a continuation of man in the first Adam, God having completed that creation thirty-odd years before he formed her from Adam's flesh and bone. Ephesians 2:10, "For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God ordained beforehand that we should walk in them." The true Church is made from the Holy Spirit taken from Jesus' side after God put Him to sleep on Calvary. Thus we too are God's Spoken Word Tabernacle, "known and read of all men," and part of the Logos which is Christ. We are His Body and He is our Head as in the natural the husband is head of his wife.
Satan's Illuminati did not fully realize what it was doing in 1933 when it put its own insignia, the Great Seal of the United States, on his Federal Reserve one dollar bill. In that year God showed His Prophet in seven continuous visions, significant events that would come to pass from that time to the termination of the world systems. The Great Seal is the Headstone, Christ, who caps the Pyramid of His Body by incarnating His end-time Bride who is the Capstone, or as Brother Branham described her, "the second Masterpiece," because when He is smitten the second time we will speak.
The foundation of that pyramid bears 1776 in Roman numerals, the year in which the Illuminati originated and America declared her independence. Brother Branham said, "According to history there has never been a democracy at any time last over two hundred years." He also said "I sincerely believe and maintain as a private student of the Word, along with Divine inspiration that 1977 ought to terminate the world systems and usher in the millennium" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:4).
The "letter" of the mystery of God was finished in 1965 with the passing of the Prophet of Revelation 10:7. Twelve years later, in 1977, when she reached the age of accountability, the "Spirit" began to unfold the revelation to Christ's Bride. Forty-one years later, few within the circle of the Message see the revelation and seem satisfied with 'church,' yet what they have seen has terminated the world system for all Message virgins and ushered in the millennium for the wise.
According to Dr. Nick Lomb, Curator of Astronomy at the Sydney Observatory and Powerhouse Museum, "As the Hebrew Calendar is based on a 19-year lunar cycle, 2015 could be taken to correspond to 1977 in some aspects." This could be interesting if we subtract the Seventieth Week of Daniel.
The Prophet said, ". . . 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" (ibid p. 265:1).
Notice, the pyramid of God represents his "holy mountain," that beautiful city of goldtransparently pure Deitywhile Lucifer's pyramid is a city of the kind of gold that buys material luxuries, "horses, and chariots, and slaves, and the souls of men" (Revelation 18:11-17). The Roman Church is controlling the last or fourth Gentile Empire. "With the world church system under her Rome will be controlling, and this image (church system) will be obedient to Rome because Rome controls the gold of the world. Thus all the people have to belong to the world church system or be at the mercy of the elements for they cannot buy or sell without the mark of the beast in the hand or head. This mark in the head means that they will have to take the doctrine of the world church system which is trinitarianism, etc., and the mark in the hand which means to do the will of the world church. With this great power the church systems will persecute the true Bride. This image will try to keep the Bride from preaching and teaching, etc. Her ministers will be forbidden to give comfort and truth to the people who need it. But before the antichrist (in person) takes over this complete world system of churches the true church will be taken away from this world to be with the Lord. God will catch away His Bride for the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb (ibid. p. 377).
Revelation 21:10-11, 22-25, "In a vision he took me (your name here) to a great and high mountain from where I saw that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of God. Her lustre was like a most precious gem, crystal cut like jasper . . . No temple could be seen in the city, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are worshipped in it everywhere. And the city had no need of the Sun or Moon to light it: for the glory of God and of the Lamb illuminate it. And the nations of the saved shall walk by its Light, and the kings of the earth shall tithe the increase of their splendor, and its gates shall never be shut for there shall be no night there".
Whilst the Millennium temple will be the 144,000 elect Israelites in whose hearts Messiah and His Bride will dwell throughout the thousand years' peace, New Jerusalem is the elect of all Ages anointed by the transparent gold of the Shekinah, the dwelling place of God manifest in Christ and His Bride who are His temple, so there can be no shadow or darkness around the City. The nations of the "saved" will live and work around the Earth and deliver their tithes to the city where God is worshipped throughout eternity in the form of His glorified Family, Jesus Christ and His Bride, His Spoken Word Tabernacle. nl436.htm
