Bible Believers' Newsletter 614
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the wonderful Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we have appreciated your fellowship in 2009 and wish you prosperity in health with rest in the faith as we enter the New Year. May you be blessed in 2010the forty-seventh year of the 'rapture' of Christ's Church.
When tribulation strikes many in the circle of this Message will say, "I thought there was supposed to be a rapture," when it has passed and they knew it not (Revelation 3:17-20). Forty-seven years ago Christ came "as a thief in the night" between the Sixth and Seventh Vials, and He is catching up one into the revelation "where the eagles are gathering together," and leaving one (Revelation 16:15; I Thessalonians 5:2; Matthew 24:40). If we do not recognize His Coming we will not be with Him in His going. First the Church Age saints will be raised glorified, then "we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them," just one here, and one there. Few will be changed in the atoms when the Spirit departs; Satan will incarnate "that man of sin" and there will be weeping and wailing among those without oil in their lamps (II Thessalonians 2:7-17).
On Boxing Day the news presenter said, "One third of annual retail sales are made in the Christmas/New Year period." This brought to mind Brother Branham's words: "Why, they started buying Christmas present months ago, and what is it but a heathen trait. There's nothing about it godly. Oh, they try to say, "Give gifts, to the wise men." That's just an oasis for a devil's excuse. You want to give something, it's your life to Christ. Don't give to one another; give it to Him. That's what He died for. That's His purpose of coming. See?"
"But it's got to be a place where it's a curse to little children. Some little neighbor down the street can have plenty, and the other little fellow don't have nothing, and they look. And the whole thing is altogether wrong. And merchants raise their merchandise at these places. Why, my wife went in to get something for some little fellows, and about three weeks ago, said, "Oh, we done sold out all the stock. We made a double order of stock this year, done sold it all out." Three or four weeks 'fore the time to start shopping. Oh, what a big commercial setup it is. And after all, do you know how Christmas ever begin, this what we call Christmas, "Christ's mass"? (Falling Apart of the World, #62-1216).
Revelation 18:3, "All nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of Rome's fornication [i.e. idolatry], and the kings of earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown rich on the abundance of her wantonness".
"The commercial world got into it and they. . . Why, they make enough through Christmas time until they can retire the rest of the year almost. I talked to a merchant the other day; he said, "You give me these two weeks, and if I didn't have to keep my van here," said, "I'd wait till next Christmas; I could go fishing, or whatever I want to do, till next Christmas." He said, "But I keep the boys going." Said, "Just keep them here just enough to keep my business open and it keeps my hands paid off and things." Said, "I don't make nothing till Christmas time comes on." You see, it's become a great commercial thing when it ought to be a worship: a worship" (God's Gifts Always Find Their Place, p. 21:90).
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.
Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott
December 17, 2009 The White House released an Executive Order "Amending Executive Order 12425." It grants INTERPOL (International Criminal Police Organization) a new level of full diplomatic immunity afforded to foreign embassies and select other "International Organizations" as set forth in the United States International Organizations Immunities Act of 1945.
By removing language from President Reagan's 1983 Executive Order 12425, this international
law enforcementbody now operatesnow operateson American soil, its officers and property beyond the reach of our own top law enforcement arm, the FBI, and is immune from Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. . . this immunity and protectionand elevation above the US Constitutionafforded INTERPOL is likely a precursor to the White House subjecting the United States under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (ICC). INTERPOL provides a significant enforcement function for the ICC, just as our FBI provides a significant function for our Department of Justice. . . Two critical matters are at play. One is an overall matter of sovereignty and the concept of the primacy of American laws above those of the rest of the world. But more recently a more overriding concern principally has been the potentialif not likelyspecter of subjecting our Armed Forces to a hostile international body seeking war crimes prosecutions during the execution of an unpopular war. . .
In light of what we know and can observe, it is our logical conclusion that President Obama's Executive Order amending President Ronald Reagans' 1983 EO 12425 and placing INTERPOL above the United States Constitution and beyond the legal reach of our own top law enforcement is a precursor to more damaging moves. Full story: threatswatch.org
Note: Interpol is not a "law enforcement" body, its four core functions are secure global police communication services; 24/7 operational police support services; operational data services and databases for police; Police Training and Development. Law enforcement officers from member states are seconded from national agencies. Officers seconded to Interpol do not have transnational executive arrest power. Only domestic law enforcement officers can make arrests.
Comment: By his tyrannical action on December 16 President Obama, Dunham, Sotero or whoever he is, has transformed the united States of America into Police State USSA, monitored and controlled by INTERPOL, a private global organization immune from US prosecution. Representatives to INTERPOL, even US nominees, pursuant Article 30 to the "Constitution and General Regulation of INTERPOL (22 U.S.c. § 263 (a)), must "renounce their allegiance to their respective countries and expatriate." Further let it be noted that the Rothschild-controlled World Bank is the agent for the creditors/principles of the federal United States and is also not subject to American Law. In his Conspirators' Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of 300, Dr. John Coleman states that "David Rockefeller's INTERPOL" (the CIA, Mossad and other intelligence agencies as well as the United Nations Organization), is controlled by British Intelligence under the Committee of 300 that "looks to social convulsions on a global scale, followed by depressions, as a softening-up technique for bigger things to come, as its principal method of creating masses of people all over the world who will become its "welfare" recipients of the future (p. 16, 40, 265).
In 1921 the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) formed because of the United States' refusal to join the League of Nations following World War I. An outgrowth of a secret British society formed by Cecil Rhodes and backed by Rockefeller and Carnegie Foundation money under the Committee of 300, the CFR's agenda envisioned nothing less than world domination and the establishment of a modem feudalist society controlled by themselves through the world's central banks.
The International Criminal Police Commission (ICPC) known as INTERPOL was conceived in 1914, founded in 1923 and exists to this day as the most enduring international police organization. The ICPC was formed at the International Police Congress in Vienna as the result, not of a diplomatic initiative, but of an initiative independently taken by police officials from various, mainly European countries. The Commission was set up without the signing of an international treaty or legal document. The ICPC activities were planned at police meetings and through correspondence among police officials, without control from their governments, and for a long time since its founding the ICPC had no internationally recognized legal status and no legal procedure was formalized for a police agency (rather than a state) to acquire membership in the Commission. As indicated on the Table below (from Dr. Coleman's "Committee of 300," Courtesy of America West Publishers), the 'hidden hand' was behind the ICPC, and the US government is on the bottom of the pecking order together with the media marginally above the more economically sound opium and cocaine trade.
In 1938 the federal United States joined (INTERPOL), designating the US Attorney General as the official representative to the organization. The Secretary of the Treasury designated by the US Attorney General was the representative to INTERPOL in 1958. The INTERPOL-United States National Central Bureau (USNCB), a component of the US Department of Justice, now serves as the United States' representative to INTERPOL and its Director is Timothy A. Williams.
INTERPOL was taken over by the Nazis in 1938 after the annexation of Austria. It was organizationally aligned with the Gestapo in 1939, and relocated close to Berlin in 1940 with Reinhard Heydrich in charge. Heydrich was assassinated in Czechoslovakia in 1942. In 1945, INTERPOL was relocated to Saint-Cloud, a suburb of Paris, and reorganized in 1946 at a meeting in Brussels. In 1947 it was granted consultative status by the UN. In 1989 it was relocated to Lyon near Paris. The organization's membership has continued to expand and presently comprises police institutions from 187 nations.
The aptly named International Criminal Police Commission is shrouded in corruption controversy. Past chief Jackie Selebi stands accused of maintaining links to organized crime, accepting bribes and maintaining a relationship with convicted drug smuggler Glen Agliotti. It is routinely abused by profit-seekers in India, who use India's arcane dowry laws to label innocent spouses as international fugitives in order to blackmail them. INTERPOL has openly participated in this scam for many years, allowing its website to be used as a point of leverage for dowry scammers. And of over 100 countries, the UAE is fifth top user per capita of INTERPOL Red Cards. Corporations in Dubai are using its flimsy judicial system to blame foreigners for corporate embezzlement when, in reality, people in Dubai are walking away with the cash.
INTERPOL maintains no police force of its own but provides advice and data, analyzing criminal activities that are not of a political, military, religious, or racial character; and disseminates notices coded into ten different colors that represent different purposes and are published in four languages (English, French, Spanish, and Arabic) to its members. It is working with the World Health Organization's (WHO) International Medical Products Anti-Counterfeiting Task force (IMPACT) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), targeting the on-line sale of counterfeit and illicit medicines. [Or effective natural products that compete with Big Pharma]? A month after an INTERPOL bioterrorism tabletop exercise conducted in Ukraine, participants in the black death scenario faced a real plague. INTERPOL works closely with international tribunals such as the International Criminal Court (ICC), the World Bank (WB) against money laundering, the UN anti-crime agency, and the World Trade Organization (WTO), previously GATT. (See interpol.int).
Its current Secretary-General Ronald Noble has replaced disgraced Jackie Selebi. Formerly of the United States Treasury, he was in charge of the United States Secret Service, the BATF, Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, the Office of Foreign Assets Control, and the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network. He headed the Department's "Waco Administrative Review Team" which produced an incredulous report on the BATF's actions against the Branch Davidians leading to the Waco Siege, somehow missed Bernard Madhoff and other Wall Street crooks, and claims that on 9/11 "Al Qaeda terrorists used US soil and US targets to murder thousands of US citizens." This imaginative career law officer knows when to turn a blind eye to "inconvenient truths" not sanctioned by 'the City' and Uncle Sam. The New World Order is in trusted hands.
In 1944, six times presidential candidate for the American Socialist Party, Norman Thomas, stated, "Americans will never knowingly adopt socialism, but, under the name of 'liberalism,' they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened".
In 1953 Brother Branham said, "They're going to have a confederation of churches. The churches of Christ of America has already confederating with all their churches, and they're going to have a band here someday that'll shut out to fight Communism, which will hook up with Catholicism, with the Protestant church and the Catholic church together. And the interdenominations who stand out for the truth, and get away from that dogma that they've got, will be persecuted. The mark of the beast, the Seal of God, the showdown will soon come" (Israel in Egypt, p. 26:166).
In 1962 Russian Premier Khrushchev said, "Communism will take over America without firing a shot. . . We will BURY YOU! We can't expect the American people to jump from capitalism to Communism but we can assist their leaders by giving them small amounts of Socialism until they awaken one day to find out they have Communism [as Jesus Christ foretold in Revelation 3:17-20]. We do not have to invade the United States we will destroy you from within" (Address to Western Ambassadors at the Polish embassy in Moscow on November 18, 1956. See the video link by former Soviet journalist Yuri Bezmenov in Newsletter 607. The techniques of Communism include Invading Education.
Brother Branham said, as God raised up Nebuchadnezzar to chastise apostate Judah and destroy His Temple, He has raised up Judaeo-Communism to destroy the false church and it's (once) Protestant US image. Judaeo-Communism has established police state USA! The Prophet said, "America . . . Its a million miles from being a Christian country. I don't even pray for it. How can I pray for it, and it won't repent under the mighty powers of God demonstrated before it, and denying, and closing the doors to it, and walking away? I commit it to God. And she's going further away, and now she's going to sink. Just watch what happens" (Trying to do God a Service without His Will, p. 23:135).
Shortly after the United States began as a republic Philip Freneau wrote, Rules for Changing a Limited Republican Government into an Unlimited Hereditary One (American Museum, July 1792). It was an unheeded warning to Americans who supported a republican form of government. He said that the limitations of the Republic's Constitution should be emphasized with "precedents and phrases shuffled in," and that civil turbulence in the Republic should be contrasted with the stability existing under an hereditary elite. The remedial scheme was the creation of debt "made as big as possible, as perpetual as possible, in as few hands as possible," and as complex as possible. "A great debt will require great taxes," and money will be put under the direction of government, and government under the direction of money", which is precisely what has happened.
In 1963 Brother Branham spoke of the economic crisis and where it will lead, "Catholics is the richest group in the world, nobody like them. And what they don't have, the Jews has the rest. . . We're right now living on tax money . . . that'll be paid in forty years from today. . . The nation is broke. She's done. . . When Jacob returned . . . and become Israel, he really had the money, but his money wouldn't buy him nothing (See?) to Esau. Esau had it too, see both [Jewry and Romanism] anti[christ] . . . I said they might want to consolidate together on the money, and the Roman power take the Jewish power of money, breaking the covenant [Daniel 9:27] . . . . We're only living off of a past reputation" (C.O.D, p. 850:Q201).
In 2008 Mr. Obama spoke at a rally in Michigan where he envisioned "a picture of a world where all boundaries are disappearing . . . not only is it impossible to turn our back to the tide of globalization, but efforts to do so can make us worse off" . . . boundaries like the nations themselves are in any event fictions implanted into your manipulated mind.
"So you see, my dear Conningsby, the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes" . . . "Governments do not govern, but merely control the machinery of government, being themselves controlled by the hidden hand" (Benjamin Disraeli). Whereas God hides in humility and reveals Himself in simplicity, the Devil is in the detail.
Morgellons Disease is Silicone Nanotechnology! Polymers from Chemtrails, NOT A Parasite
December 27, 2009 We are ALL getting infected because it is being sprayed on us in "chemtrails." The silicone nanotechnology is being sprayed on deli meats with viruses. In addition it has been found in a very popular bubble bath. Also, nanotechnology is being found in sodas! We are being subjected to this poison from all forms, air, water, food and household products.

The World made Safe for 'Democracy'
September 1, 2009 This represents one of their THREE DAY WORK WEEKS, lifelong healthcare, retirement, voting in their own pay raises, taking perks on our taxes, etc., that we all pay for.
House Minority Leader Lawrence F. Cafero Jr., R-Norwalk, pictured standing far right, speaks while colleagues Rep. Barbara Lambert, D-Milford and Rep. Jack F. Hennessy, D-Bridgeport, play solitaire Monday night as the House convened to vote on a new budget. The guy sitting in the row in front of these two . . . he's on Facebook and the guy behind Hennessy is checking out the baseball scores.
US Intelligence found Iran Nuke Document was Forged
Washington, December 28, 2009 US intelligence has concluded that the document published recently by The Times of London, which purportedly describes an Iranian plan to do experiments on what the newspaper described as a "neutron initiator" for an atomic weapon, is a fabrication, according to a former Central Intelligence Agency official. . . Israel is the primary suspect. The sources do not rule out a British role in the fabrication . . .
"The Rupert Murdoch chain has been used extensively to publish false intelligence from the Israelis and occasionally from the British government." The Times is part of a Murdoch publishing empire . . . All Murdoch-owned news media report on Iran with an aggressively pro-Israeli slant. Full story: truthout.org
Comment: Iran has not invaded another country for about 1,500 years. Iran defeated Babylon and freed the Judeans, subsidising the cost of rebuilding Jerusalem and the Temple . . . but Judeans were Israelites, NOT Jews.
US Press ignores Egyptian Suppression of Gaza Freedom March
Cairo, December 29, 2009 The government of Egypt is taking a spectacularly hard line against international solidarity efforts in support of civilians in Gaza on the one-year anniversary of the Israeli invasion, blocking peace marchers from the US, Canada and Europe from even approaching the Egyptian border with Gaza, and blocking an aid convoy that has the support of the Turkish government from entering Egypt at Nuweiba. Even a peaceful protest at UN offices in Cairo was largely walled off from public view by Egyptian police.
It seems that any pretense of Egyptian government concern for the suffering of Palestinian civilians has been dropped, along with the pretense that there is anything less than 100 percent cooperation from Egypt and its US and European patrons with Israel's program of punishing Gaza's population for the political crime of having provided majority support to the Hamas movement in a legislative election. . .

Comment: So much for US respect for democracy . . . if you vote for the wrong party. Incidentally, Nuweiba is the point from which Moses and the Israelites, not one of whom was a Jew, crossed the Red Sea.
Israeli Firm Responsible for Amsterdam Airport Security where Terrorist Boarded Aircraft
December 27, 2009 An Israeli firm is responsible for security inspections in the airport in Schiphol, Holland, and the airport where Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab boarded the Airbus 330 heading for Detroit (USA). The Israeli company, ICTS, is reportedly one of the leaders in security, & operates in Amsterdam and a number of other European countries.
ICTS was established in 1982 and today employs 11,000 security personnel in 22 countries. Many airports and airlines seek the Israeli expertise and opt for ICTS to provide security for passengers and employees. . .
Full story: theyeshivaworld.com
Comment: The terrorist was one of 14,500 people listed on international airport computers as a flight risk, yet airport screeners missed him and allowed him onto the plane even without a passport. You decide if it was an accident or "systemic failure."
In the late 80s, the two chief accountants of the Likud Party, Ehud Olmert and Menachem Atzmon, were tried for graft and corruption but only Atzmon served prison time. When he was released in 1999, during the term of Ehud Barak as PM, he got a reward for his silence:
Menachem Atzmon, convicted in Israel in 1996 for campaign finance fraud, and his business partner Ezra Harel, took over management of security at the Boston and Newark airports when their company ICTS bought Huntleigh USA in 1999. UAL Flight 175 and AA 11, which allegedly struck the twin towers, both originated in Boston, while UAL 93, which purportedly crashed in Pennsylvania, departed from the Newark airport. This convicted Likud criminal's firm was in charge of security at Logan Airportinspecting the validity of passports and visas, searching cargo, and screening passengerswhen two airliners were [allegedly] hijacked from there on September 11, 2001 and demolished the World Trade Center towers in New York. Without Atzmon in charge of Newark and Logan Airports, 9/11 could NOT HAVE HAPPENED. The same goes for Schipol this week (Barry Chamish).
Investigative journalist Joe Trento, author of "Unsafe at Any Altitude: Failed Terrorism Investigations, Scapegoating 9/11, and the Shocking Truth about Aviation Security Today," reports, "At the Central Intelligence Agency and Defense Intelligence Agency certain names and aliases are kept from the airlines and off the no-fly list to protect intelligence assets who are suspected or known terrorists." Because, "American intelligence and counterterrorism officials . . . deliberately [allow] suspected terrorist to fly among innocent passengers in the hope that a terrorist would lead them to collaborators or even a terrorist cell".
British Whistleblowers say Top Zionist Institutions in Unprecedented Crisis
December 26, 2009 Our Jewish contacts expressed common concerns, focusing on questions about their identity and loyalty to Britainthe country of their birthand on the attitude of their institutions towards the State of Israel, especially in the wake of the Israeli onslaught on the Gaza Strip in 2008-09, in which Israel killed 1,400 Palestinians, injured more than 5,000 and wreaked carnage and destruction on the 1.5 million inhabitants of the Strip.
"Our support for Israel, especially its attack on Gaza in 2008-09, is creating ruptures in the wider Jewish community in Britain . . . Are we British or are we Israelis? . . . Israel purports to speak on behalf of us as Jews. Many in our community are telling us that we therefore have a special responsibility . . . more so than Britons of other faiths or those of no faithto condemn Israel's violations of human rights and common decency when dealing with the Palestinians. Many others are saying that we should say explicitly and unequivocallyboth as individuals and through our community institutionsthat our loyalty is to Britain first, second, third and fourth ad infinitum, that we have no special loyalty or allegiance to Israel and that, for us, Israel is just another country, like France, Italy or Spain.
They say that we should distance ourselves from Israel and be the first to condemn its policies and actions towards the Palestinian people. A small but growing minoritya minority that is growing exponentially, I hasten to addtell us that we should go further and take the lead in calling for the boycott of Israel until it implements all United Nations resolutions, including Security Council Resolution 242 of 1967, and until it begins to behave as a civilized and responsible member of the international community.
Israel was never in danger from its impotent but bombastic neighbours: we saw this in 1956, when it invaded Egypt together with Britain and France, and we saw it again in 1967, which we now know was being planned for by Israeli leaders ever since the 1956 fiasco . . . our self-appointed leaders, including the Chief Rabbi, have built our community institutions on foundations that are more appropriate to 1930s Germany than the Europe of the 21st century. You cannot have healthy institutions based on a make-believe world of fear and distrust of everyone and everything that is not Jewish. . . "Just imagine what would have happened if a British Muslim columnist said that it was fine to kill Israelis who voted for a government that slaughters Palestinian civilians. . .

Moses was commanded to make the Tabernacle and its furniture after the pattern of the heavenly temple seen in visions on Mount Sinai. "But although the Law foreshadowed the promised blessings of good things to come it did not express the true form of these realities" (Exodus 25:9; Hebrews 8:5; 10:1). "It was Israel's teacher and guide until Christ came to give us right standing with God through our faith" (Galatians 3:24).
Such signposts, landmarks, symbols, charts, maps and clues define our objectives within specific constants so we do not err. As we draw closer the shadow forms a sharper likeness of the substance it represents thereby affirming its prophecy. Just as the Law was a shadow and type so are the lives of Jesus Messiah and Brother Branham, the first mature Son at the 'parousia' Coming of the Son of man (I Corinthians 15:23), and the world conditions of the days of Noah and Lot were prophesied to foreshadow circumstances we should anticipate in this day in which the ministry of "the" Son of man was replicated in "a" son of man, the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11, and Revelation 10:7.
Hence we see global miscegenation, which is accursed of God even when renamed "multiculturalism," great advances in science, moral decadence and apostasy. "As it was in the days of Noah," the end-time Message is being ministered to a generation that will not receive it; those like Enoch who walk in revelation pleasing to God will be translated, while Israel, like Noah, will pass through the tribulation. "As it was in the days of Lot," when Abraham and Sarah received new bodies (without death) before they could receive their promised son, Christ's end-time Bride will likewise be renewed in the atoms (without death) before we meet our promised Son. Two messengers Billy Graham and Oral Roberts in failing to comprehend the sign identifying a third Messenger veiled behind William Branham, a sinner saved by grace, as He was veiled behind the created Man in Genesis 18, and the virgin-born Man of Galilee, will preach salvation to the non-elect of the churches in Sodom, while the third man will reveal "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever" by the Messianic sign of Hebrews 4:12, "discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart." And when the last foolish virgin has come out of Sodom into the circle of this Message, the tribulation will commence.
John 12:12-25, "News that Jesus, having raised Lazarus from the dead was on his way to Jerusalem, swept through the city, and a huge crowd of Passover pilgrims took royal palm branches and went to meet Him, shouting, "Savior! Blessed is the King of Israel who comes in the Name of the Lord." He rode on a young donkey, fulfilling Zechariah 9:9, "Fear not, daughter of Zion. Behold, your King is coming, seated on an Ass's colt".
His disciples did not realize until after Jesus was glorified that this was a fulfillment of prophecy. Those in the crowd who had seen Jesus call Lazarus back to life bore witness, and for that reason the crowd went out to meet Him. Then the Pharisees said among themselves, we cannot prevail: look, the whole world has gone after Him.
Certain Greeks who had come to attend the Passover approached Phillip, who was of Bethsaida in Galilee of the Gentiles, and said, Sir, we would like to meet Jesus. Phillip told Andrew, and together they told Jesus who realized, if the Gentiles are beginning to catch the revelation of Messiah, the end of the Hebrew dispensation, with My death and resurrection glorified, is imminent. "I must fall to the ground and die like a corn of wheat that falls and is buried in furrows of the earth. Unless I die I will abide alonea single seed, which, if it dies will reproduce its life many fold. He who loves his life here on earth will lose it, but he who hates his life in this world will preserve it to eternal Life".
Jesus was the pattern for His Bride of all Ages, and a bride must follow her husband in "every thing" (Ephesians 5:24), thus as Jesus had to fall and rise again, the Church of Pentecost had to fall. In the Ephesian Church Age (53-170) she "left her first love," the revealed Word once delivered to the apostolic saints, paid heed to "Jewish fables," and tolerated the "deeds of the nicolaitanes" (Revelation 2:1-7). In the Smyrnean Church Age (170-312) self-styled Jews and others with claims to election aside from grace through faith intensified the tribulation of the first age and endured ten years of martyrdom under Diocletian. In the Pergamean Church Age (312-606) "the deeds of the nicolaitanes" were enshrined in doctrine when the Roman Catholic church organized in union with the Roman state at the First Nicene Council (325) and bathed the empire in Christian blood. Consequently in the Thyatira Church Age (606-1520), over 68 million Christians were martyred by the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church until the faith, which was in the heart of Christ's Bride, fell into the ground like the corn of wheat in what we know as the Dark Ages.
It had to die and go under the ground, for unless a seed dies and rots, it abides alone. But the Life of Christ, that corn of wheat, put forth two blades in the Sardis Church Age (1520-1750) as Martin Luther restored the foundational doctrine of all Scripture: "the just shall live by faith" alone (Romans 4:1-8), not by carnal works as the Roman Catholic false church teach to this day. In the Philadelphian Church Age (1750-1906) John Wesley added the revelation of sanctification: "without holiness, no man shall see the Lord" (Hebrews 12:14), and the wheat plant put forth the tassel, pollinating the whole world with the Gospel of Christ in that great missionary age.
The Laodicean Church Age (1906-1963) followed, and was called Pentecost because the Gifts of the Spirit evident in the original Church of Pentecost were restored through renewed belief. People thought this was the restoration back to the original Seed promised in Joel 2:25, Malachi 4:5-6 and Matthew 17:11, but it was just the shuck, making this the most deceiving Age, "insomuch that if it were possible they shall deceive the very elect wheat" (Matthew 24:24). The blades, tassel and husk were merely carriers of the Life, as the Virgin Mary was merely the carrier of Christ the Word. The Life that revived in Sardis developed into Philadelphia, and in Laodicea it developed into the shuck that looked as if it was the original grain, but were you to go into the field and rub the wheat between your hands you would discover there was no grain in the head, the shuck was empty. And most who exercised, or impersonated the Gifts were without the Spirit, and as in the previous Ages this Move of the Spirit denominated, and organized religion is not of God.
When the corn of wheat develops, the plant, which was the carrier of the Life, dies and dries up because the Life has passed into the head. And although Christ's Bride was drawn from each Age, the denominational carrier of the Life died and the shuck opened up, rejecting the Life as it had rejected Christ the Word at His second or 'parousia' Coming (Romans 11:31-32; Revelation 3:17-20; 18:4). So Christ's end-time Bride is rejected by the world church system because she will not organize and accept their trinity of Gods but as the wheat seed is rejected by the husk and ripens under the S_U_N light, she stands without the denominational camps under the S_O_N Light, ripening to maturity in "the unity of the faith" for the manifestation of the Sons of God to vindicate she is the corn of wheat. The PART-Word saints who carried the Life as it passed through the Church Ages all die and return to the earth, for that which was in part could not agree with the fullness of the Word, which why Christ was a Mediator from Pentecost to the close of Laodicea. Christ can only translate His Word, "which is Spirit and it is Life" (John 6:63).
Jesus was the pattern for His Bride. The PART-Word Church Age saints will be raised incorruptible in glorified bodies, and His W_O_R_D Bride will be changed in the atoms and glorified without death, then translated as her Husband was translated from the Mount of Olives.
John the Baptist said: "With His winnowing fan in His hand, God will thoroughly purge His floor [this Earth, which will be His judgment seat once the Blood is removed in the translation of Christ's Bride, for the Life is in the Blood and we are the Blood of Christ by the baptism with the Holy Spirit (II Thessalonians 2:7). Earth is a mercy seat as long as we are present]; He will gather His wheat Bride into the garner; and burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire" (Matthew 3:12).
Only Christ's end-time W_O_R_D Bride will be translated. Revelation 20:4-5, "John saw thrones, and seated upon them were the glorified twenty four elders [Israel's Patriarchs and twelve apostles (Daniel 7:9; Matthew 19:28)] to whom judgment was committed. He also saw the Bride of all Ages; those who had been beheaded for their testimony to Jesus and for the Word of God, and we who have not worshipped the beast or its image nor received its mark on our foreheads or our hands. They were resurrected and reigned with Christ a thousand years. The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection".
There will be a resurrection and a translation shortly after the close of the Gentile dispensation. Let us examine another pattern or type.
Hebrews 11:5-6, "By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of all who diligently seek Him".
Enoch who was translated without death was the firstborn out of the seventh generation from the first Adam. (Had Cain been Adam's son, Enoch would have been the eighth generation (Jude 14). This proves Cain was not a son of Adam just as his descendant, Canaan, was not a son of Noah. God's law or reproduction states that there is no evolution of species as "everything must bring forth of its own kind whose seed is within itself" (Genesis 1:11). Thus we take the nature of our parents, which is why we must be reborn of our Heavenly Father in order to receive a new nature on our old soul. Now since "Adam was the son of God" (Luke 3:38), his offspring must have his nature, but Cain was a murderer and liar, showing his father was not Adam, but the Devil-incarnate Serpent John 8:44; I John 3:8-12). Christ's end-time Bride, called out from Laodicea, the seventh generation from the last Adam, is Enoch's antitype and will be translated without death like Enoch because she is the Capstone Bride with the perfect interpretation of the Word, and before her translation she will have the testimony that she pleases God. "But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him" (Hebrews 11:6).
Your carnal good works cannot please God, as if He should reward you as a debtor. He wants to see His mind in you, that by faith or understanding you know His perfect will and live accordingly. Enoch's life shows in type how all who are called out from Laodicea and baptized into Christ will come into "the unity of the faith" and be translated as he was.
We must come into "the unity of the faith" (I Corinthians 1:10; Ephesians 4:5, 13-14). If you do not have a revelation of the original sin and cannot see the translation of Christ's end-time Bride, you are not in the faith.
Caught up in the Spirit in the Day of the Lord, which commences at the close of the Gentile dispensation, John was commanded to write the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ as signified by Christ's angel or messenger William Branham whom he saw and heard expounding these mysteries in a series of visions as Jesus revealed them to His prophet between 1963 and 1965, and John recorded them as Old Testament symbols. We know this is so because the mystery was sealed from the foundation of the world until the end of Laodicea (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4), "But in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets" (Revelation 10:7). Brother Branham is thoroughly vindicated as the seventh angel whose ministry was directed exclusively to Christ's end-time Bride, the only group predestinated to receive it. Thus throughout the Book of Revelation John represents the end-time Bride as Ezekiel symbolized all of Judah, and later all of the Northern Kingdom in chapter four of his Book.
In Revelation chapter one John announced that his commission is to record the visions he is seeing on the Isle of Patmos so they may be read by the elect in each succeeding Church Age. The first vision signifies the Bride of all Ages drawn out from the nominal church and assures Christ's end-time Bride that His hand, which holds "the keys of hell and death," rests on us as it rested upon our representative John. It was upon the Bride of no previous age because they had only PART-Word, and He was the impartial Mediator between God and men. Only His W_O_R_D Bride with "that which is perfect" will receive those keys and be translated.
The Message of the seventh angel holds this keythe fullness of the Wordthat unlocks the kingdom or new birth to the end-time Bride and brings us under pre-eminence by "the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him: the eyes of our understanding being enlightened; that we may know what is the hope of His calling, and what is the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He wrought in Christ when He raised Him from the dead" (Ephesians 1:17-20). This Message holds the faith that translated Jesus, personally assuring us of victory over the grave and preparing us for the manifestation of the Sons of God that will call the resurrection of the Church Age saints.
Do you see the revelation? The end-time Bride receives not only "the keys to the Kingdom" or new birth given to Peter (Matthew 16:19), but "the keys that unlock hell and death" that have bound all creation since Adam. We will turn those keys: like Enoch we will be translated without death and "be changed. For this corruptible shall put on incorruption, and this mortal shall put on immortality." The keys to hell or the grave allow the resurrection of the Church Age saints, while the keys to death enable Christ's end-time Bride to overcome mortality and be translated. There will be a translation.
I Corinthians 15:51-56, "Take note, I am telling you a wonderful secret. We shall not all die but we will be transformed. It will happen in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead in Christ will be raised imperishable, and we will be transformed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality, then shall the written Word be fulfilled, "Death is swallowed up in victory. Death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your victory? For sinthe sting that causes deathwill all be gone; and the Law which reveals our sins, will no longer be our judge".
The "rapture" is a revelation; it is not the translation and will not raise the saintliest one inch above the Earth.
God's Word is correct. The rapture is a threefold PROCESS of coming into the unity of the faith by answering the "shout" of the Message of William Branham, the Prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7. It is the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6 calling the Bride to arise from denominational slumber and prepare herself for the Wedding Supper of the Lamb by coming out from Rome and her apostate (once) Protestant daughter churches and dressing in the righteousness of the Message (Revelation 18:4; 19:7-9). This Message is Christ Himselfthe fullness of "the Word spoken by the mouth of ALL God's holy prophets since the world began" (Acts 3:23; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7).
The second stage of this process is the "Voice of the Archangel," who is Chief over the seven angels in His right hand (Revelation 1:16, 20). This is Christ, also symbolized as the reservoir of oil on the golden Menorah that feeds the seven lamps or Church Ages with the Spirit for their Age by the Messages of the seven stars or angels in His care and under His pre-eminence. As the "shout" was the Message that called the end-time Bride from the world and unlocked the Kingdom of heaven, the "Voice of the Archangel" brings her to maturity in "the unity of the faith" by placing the seventh angel's Message from Genesis to Revelation for the double portion of the Spirit that will unlock the chains of death so that like Enoch and Elijah she may physically enter His Presence without death (I Timothy 2:15; Revelation 1:18).
In his Message, "The Rapture," Brother Branham quotes John 5:28, "the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice," and types it with Jesus calling Lazarus forth from the tomb, saying, "So then its done been spoke: it has to come. There's going to be a rapture" (p. 39:190).
This has caused confusion even among senior ministers in the circle of this Message who have taken the "letter" of the Prophet's words without taking them back to Scripture to understand what he actually meant. John 5:28 pertains not to the first resurrection, but to the general resurrection as is clear from the wording of the text and from I Corinthians 15:52 and I Thessalonians 4:16, as he explains:
"The question now arises, why are these righteous ones in the judgment? There is no other place that they can come up, for there are but two resurrections and since they could not qualify for the first resurrection they must come up in the second which is a resurrection unto judgment. The ones who qualify for the first resurrection (the bride) are not in the judgment. John 5:24, "Verily, verily I say unto you, He that hears My Word, and believes on Him that sent Me, has everlasting life (that is, the believer is already the recipient of eternal life which he has in his possession now) and shall not come into condemnation (shall not come into the judgment, is what it really says) but is passed (permanently) from death unto life." But notice carefully, Jesus must have yet another group in mind who at a certain resurrection will receive eternal life. They will receive it at the resurrection, NOT HAVING PREVIOUSLY RECEIVED IT AS A MEMBER OF THE BRIDE.
John 5:28-29, "Marvel not at this, for the hour is coming, in the which ALL that are in the graves shall hear His voice, and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of Life, and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation".
Now we all know that John 5:28-29 is NOT THE RAPTURE for only the dead in Christ will arise from the graves at that time along with the living Bride who still is on the earth.
I Thessalonians 4:16-17, "For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the Voice of the Archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord".
But it says in John 5:28-29 that ALL are going to come forth from the grave. This is the very same resurrection that is spoken of in Revelation 20:11-15 wherein THE DEAD were brought before the Lord and judged according to their works, and all whose names were not in the Book of Life were then cast into the lake of fire" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages p. 276:1).
Brother Branham said, "God poured Himself into Christ. Correct. Christ poured Himself into the church; therefore. . . Now, watch. "At that day [when you are born-again, and ultimately when you come to maturity in "the unity of the faith" and are able to manifest that you are the Sons of God] you will know that I am in the Father, and you are in Me, and I am in you." At that day you'll know it, for the whole thing is one plan of redemption coming down, that God coming back to live in, and dwell with, and commune to His people as He did at the beginning. Now, then as soon as He gets His church in speaking conditions, gets His church to a place that He can flow Himself through, and love, and persuade, and fellowship, then there'll come a Eden. He'll take His church back to where it left Him at back to an Eden again, there where it fell. Now, that's where it made its first start of fall; there's where it'll be taken right back with every clean slate of redemption, bringing them straight back to that place again" (What the Holy Ghost was given for, p. 42:32).
At that time, what we speak God will do, for that is the 'third pull' to generate faith for translation grace in the time of the manifestation of the Sons of God as we will be under preeminence to the Word so that the Voice of Christ will be in the Bride because she has "the mind of Christ" (John 14:10; I Corinthians 2:16).
We receive the mind of Christ and the Voice of God by coming to maturity in "the unity of the faith," and bringing our mortal spirit and corruptible flesh subject to that revealed Word. The "shout" of the end-time Message awakens the wise and foolish virgin from their denominational slumber and baptizes the wise into the Body of Christ. It does not bring them to maturity. Preaching, teaching and studying to place the Message in the Scripture by the Spirit rather than learning the "letter" of the written and spoken Word as an actor or poet learns his lines ensures the possession of a clear revelation, and God's approval.
What brings us to maturity and into "speaking conditions" is "the Voice of the Archangel," which is Christ in your heart whispering His secrets to His beloved and placing the Message in the Absolute of Scripture from Genesis to Revelation so that you know that you know that you know and understand THUS SAITH THE LORD. The maturity of Christ's Bride in "the unity of the faith," will call the resurrection as the revelation of the Greeks signaled to Christ the end of the Hebrew dispensation and His imminent death. Neither your voice nor His, but the seventh Trumpet will call her to the Wedding feast in the air and the elect Israelites to their feast of Trumpets ministered by the two witnesses of Revelation 11.
Now let us find out what Brother Branham meant in his Message "The Rapture" when he said, "Shout, a messenger getting the people ready. . . The second is a voice of the resurrection. The same voice that, a loud voice in St. John 11:38 and 44 that called Lazarus from the grave. Getting the Bride together, and then the resurrection of the dead (See?), to be caught up with it. Now, watch the three things take place" (p. 32:152). "Therefore, the Message calls the Bride together. See? The shout and the trumpet, the same morning with a loud voice He screamed out with that shout, and voice and woke Lazarus. With a loud voice He cried, "Lazarus, come forth." See? And the voice wakes up the sleeping Bride, the sleeping dead" (p. 34:164). "Watch in the Old Testament, them Old Testament saints now when this rapture first taken place. Notice verse 50: His loud voice awakened the Old Testament saints just exactly like the loud voice wakened Lazarus. See? The loud voice awakened" (p. 35:170).
Exodus 19:19, And when the Voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spoke, and God answered him by a Voice".
Revelation 1:10-12, "I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great Voice, as of a trumpet, saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What you see, write in a book, and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. And I turned to see the Voice that spoke with me. . ."
Revelation 4:1, "After [the end of the Laodicean Church Age] I looked, and, behold, a Door was opened in heaven: and the first Voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter".
The Voice of Christ is a trumpet, as in "the certain sound" of the Gospel trumpet. There was nothing uncertain about the clear Voice of the trumpet that spoke to John saying, "Come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter." Every Word of God is a trumpet.
Hebrews 3:15, 8, "To day if you will hear His Voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation . . . in the day of temptation in the wilderness".
Brother Branham said, "Melchisedec went to meet Abraham before He got back home. What a beautiful type here we have: Melchisedec meeting Abraham before he got back home after the battle. We meet Jesus in the air before we get home. That's right. I Thessalonians tells us that, for we meet Him in the air. A beautiful type of Rebecca meeting Isaac in the field in the cool of the day [having received Eliezar's Message]. We meet Him in the air; I Thessalonians tells us so: "For we which are alive and remain shall not prevent [or hinder] those which are asleep; for the trumpet of God shall sound; the dead in Christ shall rise first; we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them to meet the Lord in the air." Perfect, all these types . . .
Therefore the theophany, if you have died and entered into that theophany, what happens? The theophany comes to the earth to pick up the redeemed body. And if you're here in the air, you take the body to meet the theophany, (there you are), and caught up and go to meet the Lord in the air" (Who is This Melchisedec, p. 20:109).
I Thessalonians 4:14, "If we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him." We know that Christ has come, therefore the Church Age saints have come with Him for they are manifestations of the Word. Quoting Jude 14 and Revelation 8:1, Brother Branham said, "Jesus comes from heaven with ten thousands times ten thousands of His saints, and the Bible said that the heavens was empty for the space of a half hour. Where is this big fellow, God then? Uh-huh. See, He's in Christ. Sure" (Sardis Church Age, p. 348:96).
"The sleeping dead" are very much awake and have come back with the Lord in their W_O_R_D form or theophany bodies so I believe that when Brother Branham said, "the voice wakes up the sleeping Bride, the sleeping dead" (The Rapture, p. 34:164), he was referring to Christ's Bride having been brought to maturity in "speaking conditions" by "the Voice of the Archangel" and that her perfection will signal it is time for the Seventh Trumpet to call the resurrection of the sleeping bodies of the Church Age saints.
The third and final stage of this threefold process is Israel's Seventh "Trump" which signals the close of the Gentile dispensation, calls the resurrection of the Church Age saints and the manifestation of the Sons of God to build faith in the Bride for translation grace, and summons 144,000 elect Israelites to their feast of Trumpets. The sound of the trumpet will be heard throughout the world as the earth-shattering roar as a 1,500x300-400 mile sector of earth's crust takes Los Angeles to the bottom of the ocean, triggering volcanoes and earthquakes in different places, such as the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, and sending tsunamis around the world (Luke 21:25-26; Revelation 16:18-20; 18:21-24).
Scripture records three translations in the Old TestamentEnoch, Elijah, and the Old Testament saints who resurrected and walked around on earth, appeared to many, then entered in with Jesus at His translation.
In II Kings 2:9-12, "When Elijah and Elisha had passed through the waters of Jordan on dry land, Elijah said, Ask what I shall do for you before I am taken away. And Elisha [a type of Christ's end-time Bride] said, let a double portion of your Spirit be upon me. And he said, You have asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if you see me when I am taken from you, it shall be so; but if not, it will not be. And as Elisha and Elijah were walking and talking, a chariot of Fire, and horses of Fire separated the two, and Elijah was translated and went up by a whirlwind into heaven. And Elisha saw it. . ." a type of the end-time Bride seeing the revelation of Christ's 'parousia' Coming.
On Mount Transfiguration, Moses represented the resurrected PART-Word Bride and Elijah typed the end-time Bride who will be translated as he was by a clear revelation of the fullness of the Word through the Message of our end-time Elijah. While Peter James and John represented the 144,000 elect Israelites catching the revelation of Christ's 'parousia' Coming to them (Matthew 16:28-17:9).
Scripture record's Christ's translation from the Mount of Olives and prophesies the translation of His end-time Bride, and the translation of the two witnesses to Israel anointed with the Spirit that endued Moses and Elijah. Three translations in the New Testament. We know that Christ's end-time Bride will be translated. "For we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with the resurrected Church Age saints, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord. So let us encourage one another with these words" (I Thessalonians 4:17-18). nl614.htm
