Bible Believers' Newsletter 461
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Please welcome guest contributor, Dr. Curtis B. Maynard, a historian who provided evidence in support of our court case with his thesis, "Anti-Semitism," the Provocative Accusation, in which he refers to Mr. Henry Fordís The International Jew: the World's Foremost Problem, and also to The Jewish Threat (2000) by Dr. Joseph W. Bendersky, a Jewish Professor whose book seeks to ridicule but confirms Ford's research with about seventy years of information from US, British, French and other Intelligence agencies.
The theme of Dr. Maynard's contribution in this issue is the fantasy world created for us by media, with the collusion of government, academics and various social institutions based on nothing more than an illusion. Retired Jewish professor Dr. Henry Makow, who also supported our case with a written reference and review of the Church Website, has published an exposition of the audacious illusions which veil the pre-planned history of the City of London from public consciousness.
Truth is "hate" to those who hate the truth, and our evidence has been refused four times in the past two years. I have just received less than 24 hours notice to attend court tomorrow afternoon six-hour's drive when the judge will deliver his decision. Please remember the matter in prayer.
Man is always trying to glorify his own name, instead of receiving God's Name and glorifying Him. In the days of Ham, Cush and Nimrod, "the whole earth was of one language and of one speech. . . And they said, Come on, let us build a city for ourselves with a tower, whose top reaches into the heavens. Let us make a name for ourselves, else we shall be scattered all over the earth".
In Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Edward Gibbon describes how "Two Turkish chieftains, Sarukhan and Aidin, left their names to their conquests, and their conquests to their posterity. The captivity or ruin of the seven churches of Asia was consummated; and the barbarous lords of Ionia and Lydia still trample on the monuments of classic and Christian antiquity. In the loss of Ephesus, the Christians deplored the fall of the first angel, the extinction of the first candlestick of the Revelations; the desolation is complete; and the temple of Diana, or the church of Mary, will equally elude the search of the curious traveller. The circus and three stately theatres of Laodicea are now peopled with wolves and foxes; Sardis is reduced to a miserable village; the God of Mahomet, without a rival or a son, is invoked in the mosques of Thyatira and Pergamos; and the populousness of Smyrna is supported by the foreign trade of the Franks and Armenians. Philadelphia alone has been saved by prophecy, or courage. At a distance from the sea, forgotten by the emperors, encompassed on all sides by the Turks, her valiant citizens defended their religion and freedom above fourscore years; and at length capitulated with the proudest of the Ottomans. Among the Greek colonies and churches of Asia, Philadelphia is still erect; a column in a scene of ruins; a pleasing example, that the paths of honor and safety may sometimes be the same" (chapter 64, Part III).
The Laodicean Church Age ended in 1963, but souls who are imprisoned in that bygone Move of God, without the faintest notion of the present Truthwhat Jesus is doing noware trying to make a name for themselves and the Empire of the City of London, whose forefathers crucified Jesus Messiah and all of God's prophets from Abel (Matthew 23:33-35), and whose sons will soon martyr God's prophets to Israel (Revelation 11:3-12). In the Bush vs. Bush debate, their leading 'front' man is filmed "making a name" for himself. These will not leave their names to their conquests, and their conquests to their posterity, for the Stone cut out of the mountain will smite the illusion, leaving neither root nor branch, and it shall stand forever. Our main article focuses upon the "little flock" in which God has chosen to place His Name.
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.
Pre-history of the Neocons, AIPAC, and PNAC
During 1974-75 the Rockefeller brothers were tripped up in certain plans by partial public exposure of massive irregularities surrounding America's monetary gold supply. Next during 1976-77 their long-standing secret alliance with the Kremlin fell apart, as their former alliesthe Bolshevikswere overthrown by a new ruling group in Russia. The four Rockefeller brothers made the mistake of welcoming expelled Bolsheviks from Russia into positions of power here in the United States. This led by early 1979 to the overthrow of the four Rockefeller brothers by the Bolsheviks here. . . However, the Bolsheviks were stopped short of complete success in their takeover bid by the intervention of Russia's KGB. The new Kremlin rulers knew that a complete takeover by the Bolsheviks here would lead quickly to nuclear war, and they acted to prevent it. Even so, Bolshevik control over the Pentagon has been strong ever since early 1979. . .

Comment: Hollywood director Aaron Russo states that Nick Rockefeller told him, "Eleven months before 9/11 happened there was going to be an event and out of that event we were going to invade Afghanistan to run pipelines through the Caspian sea, we were going to invade Iraq to take over the oil fields and establish a base in the Middle East, and we'd go after Chavez in Venezuela."
Rockefeller also told Russo that he would see soldiers looking in caves in Afghanistan and Pakistan for Osama bin Laden and that there would be an "Endless war on terror where there's no real enemy and the whole thing is a giant hoax," so that "the government could take over the American people. . ."
"The end goal is to get everybody chipped, to control the whole society, to have the bankers and the elite people control the world." Rockefeller even assured Russo that if he joined the elite his chip would be specially marked so as to avoid undue inspection by the authorities. . . (But what if the traitors marked it "TERMINATE"Ed)? Full story: prisonplanet.com
So we live in a fantasy world of illusions created for us by media, with the collusion of government, academics and various social institutions. Benjamin Disraeli explained, "the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes." A fourth kinsman, Illuminus F.D. Roosevelt admitted, "If something happens in politics, you can bet it was planned that way" (Matthew 4:8-9; Revelation 13:3-4).
Kuwait may abandon Dollar Peg to protect its Economy
January 24, 2007 Kuwait, the third-largest Arab oil producer, may abandon the dinar's peg against the dollar in favor of a basket of currencies to help minimize economic harm after the dollar declined. . . 5.2 percent against the euro in the past 12 months. . .
Dollar reserves are being replaced with euros by oil producers including the United Arab Emirates and Venezuela. China, which has the world's largest foreign-exchange reserves, and Indonesia say they plan to increase euro reserves and Iran says it's boosting oil sales priced in euros. . .
"I don't think other Gulf countries are going to adjust their pegs," Dorothee Gasser, a Middle East and Africa economist at ING Bank NV in London, said in a phone interview today. "What we are likely to see is that they are going to convert some of their reserves into gold. It's bearish for the dollar". Full story: bloomberg.com
UN condemns Holocaust Denial
January 27, 2007 The United Nations General Assembly has adopted a resolution condemning Holocaust denial on the eve of Holocaust Memorial Day, which is being marked across Europe.
The resolution was proposed by the United States and did not mention any particular country. But diplomats say it was aimed at Iran, which has cast doubt on the Nazi genocide of Jews in the Second World War.
Only Iran rejected the resolution. The country's envoy to the UN, Hossein Gharibi, says Washington's motives in this case are purely political. "The main sponsors aim to present this draft resolution to the assembly," He said, "[They have used] lies and a mischievous intention to pursue their narrow political interest through all means, including the misuse of this august body". . .

You are Undie Surveillance
Britain, January 29, 2007 As part of the most shocking extension of Big Brother powers ever planned here, lenses in lampposts would snap "naked" pictures of passers-by to trap terror suspects. A January 17 memo seen by The Sun discusses the cameras, which can see through clothes. It says "detection of weapons and explosives will become easier"... cameras could be deployed in street furniture."Some technologies in airports have already been used as part of police operations looking for drugs and weapons in nightclubs. These and others could be developed for a much more widespread use in public spaces. . ." Full story: freedomsphoenix.com
Comment: The world has gone insane. God's unchanging Word is the obvious panacea. Without money and without price: "Faster than a speeding bullet; more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, and sharper than any twoedged 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).
US urges Scientists to block out Sun
January 29, 2007 The US wants the world's scientists to develop technology to block sunlight as a last-ditch way to halt global warming. It says research into techniques such as giant mirrors in space or reflective dust pumped into the atmosphere would be "important insurance" against rising emissions. . .
Scientists have previously estimated that reflecting less than 1 percent of sunlight back into space could compensate for the warming generated by all greenhouse gases emitted since the industrial revolution. Possible techniques include putting a giant screen into orbit, thousands of tiny, shiny balloons, or microscopic sulfate droplets pumped into the high atmosphere to mimic the cooling effects of a volcanic eruption. . . Full story: truthout.org
Comment: Interesting type! The US has been blocking out the Son since the jubilee of the 1906 Pentecostal Revival in 1956/7. 2007 marks the Jubilee of that jubilee, when Christ's Bride should receive the faith of Joshua 10:12. At that time volcanic activity will be intense. Meanwhile, if scientists and the media spoke truth, "climate change" would end overnight.
The Grand Illusion
By Dr. Curtis B. Maynard
What if we're all victims of a grand illusion? Has the thought ever crossed your mind? How would that illusory world be presented to us? How could it be maintained in the sense of keeping it relentlessly before our eyes?
I'm not thinking in the abstract, metaphysically, or otherwise, I'm seriously thinking in the most concrete manner possible, how would a world of fantasy be presented to the public and then maintained in such a way as to keep the illusion in the forefront of human thinking? Could it be the media? Well of course it is.
I know what you're saying, you're saying that government is more powerful than media. Tell that to Trent Lott, formerly one of the most powerful Senators in the United States government, that is until he made an egregious faux pas during Strom Thurmondís 100th birthday party by suggesting that the United States might be a better place to live in today if Thurmond had won the Presidential election back in 1948 and become Americaís President. The problem of course was that Thurmond ran on a segregationist ticketthus by saying what he said, Lott allegedly also supported segregation.
The Zionist media tore into Lott, forcing him to resign his position as the Senate Majority Leaderquite a coup if you think about it. I'm not defending Lott, I don't like him, not for the reason that the media wants me to dislike him, but because he cowardly apologized for making a statement that could hardly be considered to be fallacious, look around you, is the United States truly a great country any longer? Before you answer that, consider that we have 20 million illegal aliens in this country, that we've outsourced millions of jobs, that we stripped down and sold off our entire manufacturing base in the 1980s, that we are so overwhelmed with debt we will never get out of it, that we have a murder rate higher than most Third World nations, that we don't trust each other, in fact, we really don't like each other. Consider that most typically don't know our neighbors, we don't allow our own children to play outside any longer for fear they'll be kidnapped and subjected to horrors too terrible to even consider. Look at the quality of our television programming, our social issues, gay marriage, abortion, affirmative action, crime, etc., etc., Sorry to burst your bubble, but this is no longer a great country. Period! There was a time, however, when our children could play outside, anytime they liked, anywhere they chose, and they could do so without being molested. There was a time when degenerate concepts like gay marriage weren't considered important enough to spend more than a second considering. There was a time when America was more of a meritocracy, and minorities weren't given jobs because they could claim some kind of minority status. There was a time when the networks feared the American people enough that they wouldn't have even considered forcing us and our children to watch the sewage they televise today. That time is gone, so who is to say that the United States wouldn't today be a better place to live if Thurmond had been elected in 1948, I think itís safe to say that it could hardly be worse.
The fact is, most Americans really didn't care about Trent Lottoís claim, but the media did, and thatís why the issue remained before the American people for as long as it did.
Ernst Zundel is a man who is currently about to be sentenced to five years in prison for questioning certain aspects of the holocaust story, it really doesnít matter what questions he has asked, what matters is that heís about to be imprisoned for asking them. In 2003, Zundel was living in Tennessee, [thatís in America just in case you didn't know, where the First Amendment provides us with the right to question history any way we choose], but our Department of Injustice had him illegally arrested [without a warrant], illegally deported to Canada [without due process] where he was then thrown into solitary confinement for two years without being charged with a crime. [I'm absolutely serioushe was NEVER charged with a crime]. He was eventually deported to Germany at tremendous expense to the Canadian taxpayer. [The Canadian government arranged for this "dangerous criminal" to be flown to Germany on a privately chartered plane. I checked into this, the cost of this flight was most probably in excess of 100K]. Can you imagine? The Canadian government actually paid 100K to have someone who questions history flown out of the country in the middle of the night to another country that intends to lock him up and throw away the key for the same? Seems a bit excessive don't you think? I mean, all he did was question some of the details associated with a historical event. Can you think of any other historical event that could result in the same type of persecution? Why the holocaust?
Do you believe the "official version" of what happened on 9/11? Believe it or not, most people don't. A CNN Poll gathered on Wednesday, November 10, 2004 revealed that 89% of those polled believe there has been a "cover up," of the events surrounding 9/11. Believe it or not, if you doubt the "official version" of what happened, you are NOT in the minority as the media itself would like you to believe. The CNN poll results didn't remain on CNNís website for longthey mysteriously disappeared not long after they were posted. This is because they didn't jibe well with the world that CNN and other media outlets seek to create for usthey contradicted the illusory. Needless to say, CNN has never again presented a similar poll to the American people, they already know the results, they just don't want you to know them.
The long and short of it is that people question the holocaust for exactly the same reason they question what really happened on 9/11, there are many legitimate questions, and NO forthcoming answers. In the case of the holocaust, they'll throw you in prison for even asking questions. Does this seem like something modern democracies like Germany, Austria, France and Spain should be doing? The reality is that they do it all the time, there are thousands of people in prison in Europe today for refusing to accept a history they aren't even allowed to question. Imagine that. But you won't hear much about these cases in the media, primarily because these governments are embarrassed about what they do, they don't want the truth to get out. How come?
Back to Ernst Zundel. Not a single mainstream article has been written that details the facts associated with his case, all they do is smear him with labels, i.e. anti-Semite, holocaust denier, etc., Not a single article has broached the idea that itís anti-Democratic to throw an old man in prison for questioning history, not a single one. But the entire media apparatus jumps on the bandwagon when it comes to sentencing, they don't want you the viewer/reader to know anything about Zundel, other than heís allegedly evil, that he has been charged, and that he has been convicted, they want to put the fear of God into anyone that dares to question their carefully choreographed fantasy world. Itís the very same with the occupation of Iraq, the media keeps drumming into the head of the American public that our troops are wanted by the Iraqi peoplethat they want us to establish order, that they want us to show them how to form and maintain a functioning Democracy, etc., etc., ad nauseum. The fact is, the vast majority, over 90% want us to leave immediately, not in six months, immediately, we've killed enough of their women and children, and they've figured out something most Americans haven't, the American version on democracy is a fantastic lie. Believe it or not, Iraqis don't want a world where their women can receive abortion on demand, where the murder rate in our own nation's capital is higher than it has ever been in Baghdad prior to the American occupation, where Zionists are allowed to monopolize the media, where issues like gay marriage and adultery are common and approved topics for discussion on the television, where rapists are let off with a few years probation, where business and making the almighty dollar overrule all other thoughts and concerns. Can you imagine that?
Our media constantly lies to us, most recently it has been foisting the erroneous idea that the President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that he'd like to see "Israel wiped off the map." This is nothing more than a blatant lie, but the Zionists want America to use its children to attack Iran, thus they will continue to perpetuate this lie until our treasonous President George Bush does its bidding and attacks Iran like a good little boy. The fact of the matter is, Ahmadinejad said that there must be a "regime change," in Jerusalem, he uttered no word whatsoever that could have been mistranslated as "map," but thatís what the Zionist media wants you to believe, thus they made it up, right out of thin air. How comfortable do you feel encouraging your child to enlist in the military, to go fight a nation whose leader has been intentionally misquoted for the sole purpose of deceiving your child into enlisting in the first place?
The media did exactly the same thing with Iraq, don't you remember? Hint, weapons of mass destruction, ties to Al Qaeda, connections to 9/11. Are you waking up yet? More than 3,000 Americans have already died as a result of those lies. Fortunately, many Americans have woken up, enlistment rates have plummeted, reenlistment numbers are way down, even applications to the prestigious Military Academy West Point have dropped off so significantly that West Point is no longer honestly reporting what they are. However these facts don't concern the government [Democrats and Republicans alike] because they'll just initiate a draft to appease their Zionist masters. Do you feel a draft yet? You will, just as soon as another fake terrorist incident is fabricated and carried outthe media will drum up its propaganda machine and start anew, "Islamo-Fascists," this, and "Muslim radicals" that." Will you believe them this time? I like to point out to friends of mine that there isn't a single television network in the western world owned by Arabs, despite all of their collective wealth, and that it isn't Arabs that force all this degenerate television programming down our throats, that it isn't "Islamo-Fascists," who are lying about the actual number of Americans that are against Amnestying 20 million illegal aliens, that it isn't Muslims who encourage our children to seek abortions, that it isn't Mohammed that comes into our homes in the guise of a social worker to take away our children for spanking them when they need to be punished. Nope, these ideas are propagated by an entirely different ethno-religious groupthe truth is, the entire media apparatus is owned by ethnic Jews. When you understand this, you can see how and why our news is slanted towards Israelís perspective and how and why that has literally brainwashed us, the American people, into accepting the many lies put forth by the media today.
An excellent example of how the media and academics conspire against the majority is the idea, propagated in most Universities today, that "violence is always irrational." This is a common theme in social science programs throughout the western world todaysure, they never emphasize this when it comes to serving in the illegal occupation and/or bombing of another sovereign state that just can't bring itself to accepting Americaís perverse concepts of morality and democracy. But in any case, the idea behind convincing young minds that "violence is always irrational" is essentially to neuter them, to make them accept this fallacy without hesitationto convince them that violence is never beneficial. Think about thisdoes it REALLY make sense? I mean, seriously, does it?
From my point of view, the decision to engage in an act of violence may in fact be the most "rational" decision we ever make in this otherwise meaningless existenceis it not rational to violently oppose anyone attempting to kill you or your family members? Is it not "rational" to engage in violence if someone is attempting to unlawfully eject you from your home, and/or dispossess you and your family of its property? Of course it is, but that doesnít stop highly paid academics from forcing the idea that to engage in violence is always [thatís the key word] irrational. These fools shouldn't be listened to, they should be tossed out on their ear. They are the ones who are irrational, not us.
The long and the short of it is that the media, with the collusion of government, academics and various social institutions has created a fantasy world for us that is based on nothing more than illusionthe media creates spokespeople to usher in these fanciful ideas and then provides a platform for them to spew their lunacy right in our living rooms every night, they're the ones who tell us most Americans sympathize with the 20 million illegals in this country, who are dispossessing us of our jobs, they're the ones who tell us by shipping our jobs overseas we're actually helping our economy, they're the ones that tell us "nobody with any brains or sense questions what happened on 9/11," and/or what really happened with the holocaust sixty-five years ago. They are the ones who tell us, Barack Obama and/or Hillary Clinton are the favorites among Democrats [total horse manure], and/or John McCain and/or Rudolph Giuliani are the frontrunners among Republicans. Why do they tell us this? All of the above are ardent servants of Zionism, thatís why. None of the above are in reality admired by Americans, Clinton is universally despised, [Don't believe mego outside and start asking people], nobody knows anything about Obama, McCain is a traitor who long ago sold his soul to Israel, as is Giuliani, who by the way is suspected by the vast majority of New Yorkers to be one of the many behind the 9/11 cover-up, but somehow we're to accept the idea that Americans love these people and want them to lead our nation. Please!
Wake up America, you are being deceived.
The Restitution of All Things
John 7:37-39, "Jesus stood and cried, If any man thirst let him come unto Me and drink. He who believes on Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But He spoke of the Spirit, which they who believe on Him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified)".
The last invitation for us Gentiles to drink the water of Life without money and without price went forth in 1963 with the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16, which was the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6 and the heavenly command of Revelation 18:1-4 to separate from sin. It was the Message of Brother Branham: God's grace is at its end. The sinking of Los Angeles and a large part of earth under the ocean will mark the end the Pentecostal feast and initiate the feast of Trumpets calling Israel to their Atonement preparatory to the seventh day of the feast of Tabernacles, and Christ and His Bride to their Wedding Supper in the sky and thousand-year honeymoon on earth. So drink of the waters from the riven veil of Christ's flesh. Drink now, before the fountain is shut to us Gentiles. Drink and you will thirst never more.
Daniel 12:3, "The wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they who turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever".
Philippians 2:14-16, "Do all things without complaining and questioning: that you may become unblameable and pure, God's faultless children without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the Message of Life. . ."
While Daniel alluded to 144,000 elect Israelites who will be born as a nation in one day in the midst of the Great Tribulation, Paul pointed to Christ's Bride of all Ages "shining as luminaries" in a world of unbelief, and also in eternity such that in place of the stars we reflect the glory of the Shekinah over New Jerusalem in the renewed heaven and earth. These words remind us of Revelation 4:3 in which John tried to describe the appearance of God's glory, but the closest comparison he could make was to the precious stones in the breastplate of the high priest when the Urim and Thummim flashed THUS SAITH THE LORD.
The metaphor of precious stones, gates within single pearls 144 cubits or 216 feet high, and the broadway of "transparent gold, like glass," emphasizes the ability of the City of God to reflect the luminous glory of God like the timber panels of the tabernacle and the masonry and cedars of the naos of Solomon's temple which were overlaid with gold. "Pure," "clear" and "transparent" underscore the resplendent nature of the materials of the Cityliving stones hewn by the manifested Word of God's prophets. Hence its intrinsic faculty for reflecting His glory.
In New Jerusalem the broadway of old Jerusalem's eternal shame, where our Lord was crucified and where the bodies of His Hebrew witnesses will lay dead for three and a half days while the ungodly world looks on in contempt, is the broadway of its eternal glory upon which only the feet of deity will tread. Consequently when John saw God manifest in the flesh of His glorified Family in Revelation 21 she was "unblameable" "and pure," "simple concerning evil," upholding "mustard seed faith" neither mixed nor "double-minded" with the shameful character of denominational guesswork (I Thessalonians 3:13; Romans 16:19; Matthew 10:16; 17:14-21). The Shekinah glory of God's glorious Presence will forever shine down upon the inviolable and completed community of the redeemed with its glory.
Like Aaron's breastplate of judgment the foundation of the City is composed of precious stones engraved with the names of the twelve apostles, not simply decorated with them. It is inset with gates of pearl bearing the names of the twelve tribes of Israel (Exodus 28:15-29; 39:8-21; I Kings 5:17; 7:9-10). Gates of praise with thanksgiving in walls of salvation built upon the foundation of God's unchanging Truth: "If the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed" (John 8:36).
"Abraham had two sons, one by the slave girl and one by his freeborn wife. There was nothing unusual about the natural, fleshly birth of the slave girl's child, but the child of the freeborn wife was born on account of God's promise. Now this is allegorical, indicating two covenants, one from Mount Sinai in Arabia, bearing children for slavery under the Law of sin and Death. This is Hagar and corresponds to Jerusalem that now is, the mother city of the Israelites, the center of that system of trying to please God by working to obey the Law, and those who try to follow that slave system are her slave children. But our mother-city is the heavenly Jerusalem, which is free and not slave to Jewish laws. For it is written: Now you can rejoice, O childless woman; break out with joyful shouting, you who had no birthpangs because more numerous are the children of the desolate woman [Jerusalem which is above] than the children of the slave-wife. And you, brethren, like Isaac, are children of the promise" (Galatians 4:24-28).
Addressing old Jerusalem in Isaiah 54:10-12, the Lord said, "Though the mountains be removed, and the hills be shaken; My kindness will not leave you. My promise of peace for you will never be broken, says the Lord, who has compassion on you. O afflicted one, tempest-tossed and not comforted; I will rebuild you on a foundation of sapphires and make your walls of precious jewels. I will make your towers of agates, and your gates of carbuncles. And all your children shall be taught by the Lord; and great shall be the peace of your children" (Revelation 21:18-19, 21, 27).
God was describing new Jerusalem in the new heaven and new earth, where God in Christ and us in Him is the Temple. Jesus promised, "He who overcomes will I make a pillar in the Temple of My God [or part of the foundation], and he will leave it nevermore: and I will write upon him the Name of My God, and the Name of the City of My God, which is New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God: and I will write upon him My new Name" (Revelation 3:12; John 2:19; I John 1:7).
In this present earth all temples and churches have an object they are worshiping: in New Jerusalem Christ and His Bride are the living Temple of God, the object of worship of the "saved" who will compass the earth outside the City, and tithe of their blessings to God manifest in His glorified Family.
The Cherubim, palms and open flowers that adorned Solomon's Temple symbolized that pure and blessed Life of which the temple, wherein God manifested His Presence, was the pledge (I Kings 6:29). Christ and His Bride is God's Temple, New Jerusalem His Garden of Eden where those who have partaken of the Tree of Life this side of Eternity will live forever with dominion over the new heavens and new earth: God's new Eden.
Revelation 22:1-2a, Ezekiel 47:1-9, Joel 3:18 and Zechariah 14:8, tell us that God will make the end like the beginning (Genesis 2:9-10), when "God saw everything He had made, and, behold, it was very good".
Acts 3:20-23, "God will send back Jesus Messiah, who was heralded in advance of His first Coming. For He must remain in heaven until the times of universal restoration from sin of all things, as God has prophesied by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. For instance, Moses said to the fathers, The Lord God will raise up from among your brethren a Prophet like Me. Take heed to everything He tells you. And it shall be that every soul who does not hear that Prophet [through Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Martin Luther, John Wesley, William Branham, and finally, the Moses and Elijah who will be His witnesses to Israel], shall be utterly destroyed" (Heb. 'cherem') in the Lake of Fire.
Ezekiel 47:1-7 speaks of this restoration through the Pentecostal feast as the elect of God are immersed more completely in the depth of the waters of the river of Life flowing from the throne of God in Christ, who is the Temple and the Door. Living waters flow from His pierced side, ever increasing into a mighty river, "line upon line, precept upon precept," not by the influx of side streams but by its own self-supply until it cannot be crossed without complete immersion into the fullness of its Life-giving flow in this present holy convocation or fiftieth day of the feast.
The angel brought Ezekiel into the waters up to his ankles, signifying the measure of Spirit revealed to Martin Luther and the saints in the Sardis Church Age by the revelation of justification by grace through faith. Then led him into the further revelation of Sanctification delivered by John Wesley in the Philadelphian Church Age, where the waters reach up to his knees, then still deeper into the revelation Brother Branham ministered to the saints of the Laodicean Church Age: "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever." Now the waters came up Ezekiel's loins.
At last the angel brought Ezekiel into the revelation for the fiftieth day of the feast: maturity in the unity of faith that will produce the "greater works" in the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. Here the waters of the fullness of the Word were so deep they could not be crossed on foot. One must either sink, or yield and swim in the Spirit. Since Christ opened and revealed the Seven Seals, "the mystery of God is finished . . . that which is perfect has come . . . there will be no further delay while Christ intercedes for the saints' ignorance of PART-Word" (Revelation 4; 5; 10:1-7; I Corinthians 13:10). No longer is He in the office of Son of God and Mediator (John 5:24-26), but as Son of man He is Judge (John 5:22-23, 27), and "Every soul who rejects the Message of Christ to this dispensation will be utterly destroyed" (John 3:18; Malachi 4:6; Titus 3:9-11; Revelation 1-3; 22:11-19).
The remainder of Ezekiel 47 and 48 explain how the waters of Life or Holy Spirit heal or restore earth to Edenic perfection, and bring the elect 144,000 Israelites into fellowship with the Tree of Life, Jesus Messiah, whose offspring they become (Isaiah 53:6-10; 65:23) like the Old and New Covenant saints before them (Ezekiel 47:12; Daniel 12:5-7; Revelation 22:2). The waters are not to heal sickness but the 'cherem' God brought upon earth (Zechariah 14:11; Revelation 22:3).
Isaiah 35:6-9 (LXX), Ezekiel 47:12, and Revelation 21:24, 27 22:2 describe a re-establishment of the garden in which God's Presence openly dwelled as alluded to in the victorious symbolism of the palm tree, blooming flowers, and cherubim with the face of a man, and the face of a lion in the naos of the temple (I Kings 6:18, 29, 32, 35; Ezekiel 41:18-26).
The privilege of consecration to be acceptable in the immediate Presence of God, formerly reserved only for Israel's high priest, is now granted to all of God's people. Revelation 22:4, "And they shall see His face; and His Name shall be in their foreheads." God can only be seen in Jesus Christ in whom the fullness of His attributes manifest bodily. Soon we shall see and intuitively know Him face to face even as we are known by Him (John 14:9; I Corinthians 13:9-12; I Timothy 6:16).
Jesus said, "I came in My Father's Name, and you received Me not" (John 5:43). The Father put His own Name, which is Jesus, in the Son. He is the way, He is the door, and He is the Temple. Our Lord Jesus Christ is where God chose to put His Name. His Name is in the Word because Jesus is the Word so the Word interpreted is the manifestation of the Name of God. "Flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven has shown you who I am. And on this rock of Spiritual revelation of the Word I will build My Temple and the gates of hell shall not withstand faith" (Matthew 16:16-18). If you have the Name or "the Seal of God in your forehead" as the high priest bore on his forehead a plate of pure gold inscribed "HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD," you have His mind, which is the revelation of His Word, and your life will be the manifestation of His Name (Revelation 22:4; Exodus 28:36-38). In this kingdom of priests, such consecration will be the common dignity of all, as will the Name, which means King of righteousness, and then King of peace (Hebrews 7:2).
Since the name of New Jerusalem, "The Lord is there" (Ezekiel 48:35) is also written upon you, you are its freeman entitled entrance by the gates into the City, and known throughout earth as a son of God.
Numbers 6:22-27, "The Lord said to Moses, tell Aaron and his sons: This is how you are to bless the children of Israel. Say to them, 'The Lord bless and keep you: the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you: the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.' In this manner they shall invoke My Name on the children of Israel; and I Myself will bless them."
The blessing of the shining of God's face (Revelation 22:5) is to result in preservation and "peace" for the saints, which is equivalent to God "invoking My Name on the children of Israel." In Revelation 22:4 this is applied to all of Christ's Bride, as God's priests. Though under the Old Testament, such a full revelation of God's "face" and "Name" would bring death (Exodus 33:20), now it brings Life and kingship. We have such an intimate relationship with God we not only take on His Name, but also become associated with His throne, and "reign forever" (Revelation 22:2-5).
Zechariah 14:9, "And the Lord shall be King over all the earth. In that day there shall be one Lord, and His Name alone will be worshipped".
God's face is shining upon you who have received the last invitation for us Gentiles to drink the water of Life without money and without price. Speaking of Revelation 18:1-4 and Hebrews 12:25-26, Brother Branham said, "You remember, the hour is close at hands when the mark will come. You'll either be in it or out of it. (i.e. sink or swim; be translated to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the sky, or cast into the tribulation Ed). And it'll come like a thief in the night. It'll catch you right in there, and you're there. There ain't no getting out of it then; you done took it. Come out. An angel came down from heaven with a great shining face and has cried out to the people that shook the earth, "Come out of Babylon, for she's fallen. Be not partakers of her plagues, My people." Get out of her. Get out. Didn't we just read it in the Word awhile ago? An angel's a messenger (See?) coming down. Notice, the Holy Spirit, "Come out of her that you be not partakers" (God of this Evil Age, p. 38:170).
The climactic fulfillment of Daniel 7:18, 27 and Revelation 3:21 was vouchsafed for the saints in Revelation 1:5-6, 9; 5:10, as it will be further confirmed in the intermediate state of the Millennium (Revelation 20:4-6). nl461.htm
