Bible Believers' Newsletter 760
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
Once again we are privileged by a further article from Pastor Dean Gilchrist who has recently returned from New Caledonia where he introduced the Message together with several ministers from the United States.
God's hand cannot long be restrained in face of evils such as the Boxing Day Tsunami, 9/11, Fukushima, Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, a brace of contrived wars on friendly nations and innocent people, with more in the pipeline. "God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for I regret that I have made them" (Genesis 5:5-7).
Jesus said these evil conditions of the days of Noah would repeat in the days of His second or 'parousia' Coming in 1963, and He is present NOW. This time nuclear fire will "leave neither root nor branch" (Matthew 24:35-37; Malachi 4:1-3; II Peter 3:3-12). Keep the Token on display.
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
Sandy: Simulated Storm of 1997! Coincidence?
October 28, 2012 About three weeks ago we received reports that the US military was relocating men and equipment from low lying ground on the eastern seaboard inland to higher ground. It was foolishly speculated this was for fear Russia was about to set off undersea nuclear explosions to generate tsunamis so we ignored the reports. The military obviously had advance knowledge of Hurricane Sandy.
Last week we received images showing serious HAARP activity over the eastern states. What is interesting about this weather event is that if "Sandy" was not intentionally generated by HAARP why was HAARP not deployed to calm or steer the hurricane to sea preventing landfall? Full story: youtube.com. Fifty dramatic images. A convergence of high tides and strong Sirocco winds reached 1.4m in Venice, Italy more images.
"Sandy" favoured Obama, allowing him to appear 'presidential' and in command; it halted Romney's momentum, turned off TV campaign commercials and returned so-called 'climate change' fraud and centralized government to the debate. Obama is now slated to win the election by about 5%. Al Gore is already spruiking his 'climate change' money racket.
Never before seen Phenomenon in Pacific Ocean
October 30, 2012 A yacht cruising the South Pacific encountered this incredible sight. Can you imagine the thrill of this encounter? Is this a beach? Not beach, but pumice! Where is the volcano? Our wake. Look, ash and steam is rising.
As we watched a plume of black ash painted the seascape red, then a huge cloud blacked the sky and the sun gilded the ocean. Mountain peaks rose from the ocean depths; further eruptions, ash and clouds of smoke produced 200 hundred years of 'human-induced' CO2 within minutes. The mountains rose higher forming a new island, and the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob manifest the folly of the climate change HOAX and SCAM of the most corrupt IPPC 'climate change' pseudo-scientists and lying politicians the United Nations, Rothschilds and the 'City of London' could buy.
These images bear witness to earth's birth pains for renewal, and the prophecies of Isaiah, Jesus Christ, and William Branham of the sinking of Los Angeles, much of California and a 1,500x300-400 segment of earth's crust and Florida on the East. The eruption of the Pacific Ring of Fire will sink many islands including Japan and tidal waves will sweep the earth. Mountains, too, will fall, and the Mount of Olives will cleave in two.
Jesus us "a prophet as thoroughly vindicated, or even more thoroughly vindicated than was any prophet in all the ages from Enoch to this day, because this man will of necessity have the capstone prophetic ministry, and God will show him forth. He won't need to speak for himself, God will speak for him by the voice of the sign. Amen" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 329). Repent and prove this last Message before God finishes with we Gentiles.
Imperialism in the X-Factor Age
October 26, 2012 In Vietnam, Agent Orange was dropped by the US to poison a foreign population. In Iraq and the former Yugoslavia, depleted uranium was used. In Western countries, things are a bit more complicated because various states have tended to avoid using direct forms of physical violence to quell their own populations (unless you belong to some marginalized group or hit a raw nerve, as did the Occupy Movement last year). The pretence of democracy and individual rights has to be maintained.
One option has been to use South American crack cocaine or Afghan heroin to dope up potential troublesome sections of the population. It's worked wonders: highly lucrative for the drug running intelligence agencies and banks awash with drug money, while at the same time serving to dampen political dissent in the most economically and socially deprived areas. Another tactic has of course been the massive ever-increasing growth of the surveillance industry to monitor ordinary citizens.
But drugs, surveillance and direct violence are kind of a last resort to keep a population in check. Notwithstanding baton charges, tear gas and the use of rubber bullets on the European mainland and that the US Government is not ruling out the use of violence on its own people, ideology via the media has and continues to be the choice method for population control in Western countries.
Whether it's through the paranoia induced by the fear of terrorism or more general propaganda spewed out by the mainstream 'news' channels, political agendas and modes of thought are encouraged that seek to guarantee subservience and 'integration,' rather than forms of critical thought or action that may lead to a direct questioning of or a challenge to prevailing forms of institutionalised power.
From trade unions to political parties, oppositional groups are infiltrated, deradicalised and incorporated into the system and critical stances are stifled, ridiculed or marginalized. Consensus is manufactured both in cultural and political terms. The result is that presidential candidate TV debates, political discourse and much of the popular mass media is void of proper analytical discussion: public theatre scripted by speech writers and PR people, presented in manipulative, emotive, 'human-interest' terms.
From the TV news and commercials to the game-shows and latest instant fame programme, misinformation, narcissism and distraction pervade all aspects of life. Why be aware of the world's ills and challenge anything when you can live in the dark, watch X-Factor, wear Reebok and shop till you drop? It is an infotainment paradise where lies are truth and unfettered desire a virtue. . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

Television and the Hive Mind
Experiments conducted by researcher Herbert Krugman reveal that, when a person watches television, brain activity switches from the left to the right hemisphere. The left hemisphere is the seat of logical thought. Here, information is broken down into its component parts and critically analyzed. The right brain, however, treats incoming data uncritically, processing information in wholes, leading to emotional, rather than logical, responses. The shift from left to right brain activity also causes the release of endorphins, the body's own natural opiatesthus, it is possible to become physically addicted to watching television, a hypothesis borne out by numerous studies which have shown that very few people are able to kick the television habit.
This numbing of the brain's cognitive function is compounded by another shift which occurs in the brain when we watch television. Activity in the higher brain regions (such as the neo-cortex) is diminished, while activity in the lower brain regions (such as the limbic system) increases. The latter, commonly referred to as the reptile brain, is associated with more primitive mental functions, such as the "fight or flight" response. The reptile brain is unable to distinguish between reality and the simulated reality of television. . .
There is another way in which we are manipulated by television news. Human beings are prone to model the behaviors they see around them, and avoid those which might invite ridicule or censure, and in the hypnotic state induced by television, this effect is particularly pronounced.

The Galileo Movement
October 20, 2012 Australians, Americans and Europeans are increasingly concerned about UN Agenda 21 and its confusing regulatory maze and alphabet jumble of agencies such as ICLEI. Independent research repeatedly reveals UN campaigns removing personal property rights and restricting resource use, residency and movement within communities.
The UN's campaigns are falsely camouflaged as environmental action under two misleading tags: biodiversity and sustainability. Camouflaged as (pseudo) science these feed off UN Agenda 21's third leg: bogus scary climate change (formerly global warming). Arbitrary regulations bypass parliaments by using taxpayer-funded agencies to replace freedom of choice with state control.
UN Agenda 21's octopus-like tentacles spreading over local councils through the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives. ICLEI is a UN agency based in Bonn, Germany. UN policy is illegally extending its octopus tentacles and bypassing elections.
This is part of global governance with total state ownership compressing people into regulated zones after banning private property. It's underway in western democracies at huge human and economic cost including American counties and states such as California. It's already removed some Australian residents' property rights. Australia is signatory to over 7,000 UN treaties. These range from the Lima Declaration destroying agriculture and manufacturing to seemingly innocent yet restrictive ordinances controlling water, land, farming and food. Is Australia technically becoming a UN colony? . . .
The Next War: Destination 'Lebanon'
October 21, 2012 Remember that you have to give a dog a bad name before you kill him. The media is always ready for this entertaining task that terrifies the proles and improves their ratings. You must also realize that people love pseudo-wars that are easily won, because they vicariously act out their instinctual aggression through these military exercises called wars by our politicians and the media.
Mr. Obama doesn't need another mini-war or a terror attack to win this coming election despite the multimillion dollar theatrics of a pseudo-democracy. His inept opponent was picked by the elite to ensure an easy win, because Mr. Obama has continued his predecessor's policies and completely fulfilled what is expected of him despite the caustic rhetoric that gets the proles excited. Therefore, and after the election is over, Syria, the poor country with no significant resources that borders Israel, an old Soviet client, and a current Russian ally will be fully embroiled in deeper violence that will eventually obliterate its secular regime that was once supported by the US, which will result in a total disintegration of that country into small, fanatic, allegedly independent, and homogeneous principalities bickering with each other and under the indirect control of the Israeli Zionist regime. The Western plan for the Middle East coincides with Yinon's vision to redraw the region and the new re-mapping has to go through Syria.
Lebanon and Iran will follow. Iran would be the toughest to divide because of its homogenous Shiite population, but the nuclear weapon card will be played to its fullest. . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Billy Graham faces Backlash over Mormon 'Cult' Removal
October 26, 2012 The Rev. Samuel Wynn admired Billy Graham and his evangelistic association for decades, joining its spiritual crusades and urging fellow Christians to do the same. But no more. "I will never again support anything by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association," said Wynn, the superintendent of a United Methodist Church district in Fayetteville, NC. The source of Wynn's ire: the BGEA's recent removal of language on its website calling Mormonism a "cult." The scrubbing followed GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's pilgrimage to Billy Graham's mountaintop home in Montreat, NC. After the October 11 meeting, Graham pledged to "do all I can to help" Romney, according to a campaign aide. . . "My question to Billy Graham is, What's more important for the kingdom of God: politics or the Message of Jesus Christ?" said Wynn. . .

Comment: Years ago Billy Graham whitewashed Roman Catholicism, the biggest cult of them all. Graham is not who or what people have been led to believe. Jesus said, "Take heed that you are not deceived: for many shall come in My Name, saying, I am a Christian and the [end of Gk. 'kairos' or opportunity] time draws near: therefore go not after them" (Luke 21:8).
Stop Nuclear War!
October 30, 2012 "An Anglo-American-led thermonuclear bombardmentagainst leading nations of Asia including Russia and China: this danger now exists, for at least as long as a [City of] London-controlled US President Barack Obama remains as President of the United States of America." Australia's participation in the British stooge Barack Obama's "Asia Pivot"in the context of Obama's continuation of George Bush's Ballistic Missile Defence system to strip both China and Russia of their nuclear deterrentconfronts China (and Russia) with a deadly threat that is fast escalating toward thermonuclear conflict.
As for any pipe dreams that the government's just-issued Asia Century white paper marks a policy shift away from our present plunge toward nuclear war, forget it. In fact, the report supports not only the United State's anti-China "Asia Pivot," but calls for deepening our military relations with the US: "We will continue to support US engagement in the region and its rebalancing to the Asia-Pacific, including through deepening our defence engagement with the US and regional partners". . . Full story: cecaust.com.au
Comment: Australia's military co-operation with that murderous rogue, the United States, is insanity. The best politicians money can buy have been blinded to reality by their unbelief in the revealed Word of God. There will be NO "Asian Century" as the Judaeo-Roman (NOT Israelite) Century will extend to the consummation which Judaeo-Communist Russia will pour out on the desolate according to Ezekiel 38 39, Daniel 9:27, and Revelation 17 to 19. First, Vatican City State, then her (once) Protestant image the United States, will be blasted from the face of the earth; lastly, and seven years after the earthquake sinks Los Angeles, Armageddon will consume life on earth.
Meanwhile we should anticipate the 'hot stage' of the present World War III in the second quarter of next year with Israel defeated, absolutely finished as a military power, and with Jerusalem the global capital of Lucifer's totalitarian one world government under a then Devil-incarnate pope. I believe the United States will not only be defeated but briefly occupied by Russian forces. And before that scene is played out the Holy Spirit will depart with the New Testament saints . . . so few are among the living they will not be missed in the unprecedented natural catastrophes of earthquakes, moon quakes, tidal waves, volcanic activity that will claim the lives of scores of millions in one day, causing political, economic and currency collapse, and world war.
The Virtual Economic Recovery
October 30, 2012 The bond market bubble will pop if the dollar bubble pops. The Federal Reserve can sustain the bond market bubble by purchasing bonds, and there are no limits on the Federal Reserve's ability to purchase bonds. However . . . Foreign central banks can decide that they want to hold fewer dollars and more precious metals as their reserves. Other countries, sensing the US dollar's demise, are organizing to conduct their trade without the use of the world's reserve currency. Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa intend to conduct their trade with one another in their own currencies. China and Japan have also negotiated to settle their trade balances with one another in their own currencies.
These agreements substantially reduce the use of the US dollar in international trade and, thus, the demand for dollars. When demand falls, so does price, unless the supply shrinks. But the Federal Reserve has announced, essentially, unlimited supply of US dollars. . . In addition, China, America's largest creditor and in the past a reliable purchaser of US Treasury bonds, holds some two trillion in dollar-denominated assets, primarily Treasury bonds. How is Washington treating its largest foreign creditor? Not with appreciation or deference. Washington is surrounding China with naval and air bases, interfering in China's disputes with other countries, and bringing contrived actions against China in the World Trade Organization. Washington claims that US corporations are deserting the US not because of the lower cost of labor in China, but because of Chinese "subsidies" to the relocated US firms.
In my April 30 column, "Brewing a Conflict with China," I wrote that Washington would like to substitute a cold war with China for the hot wars in the Middle East. The problem with the hot wars is the loss of superpower face from Washington's inability to prevail after eleven years, and although the hot wars are profitable for the military/security complex, the wars don't generate the level of profits that would flow from a high-tech arms race with China. Moreover, Washington believes that diverting Chinese investment from the economy into a military buildup would slow the rate at which the Chinese economy is overtaking the US economy.
What if instead of taking the bait from Washington, China targets Washington's Archilles heelthe dollar's role as reserve currencyand decides it is cheaper to dump one trillion dollars of US Treasury debt on the bond market than to commit to a 30 year arms race? To keep the price of Treasuries from collapsing, the Federal Reserve could print the money to buy the bonds. But if China then dumps the printed one trillion dollars in the foreign exchange markets, Washington cannot print euros, British pounds, Russian rubles, Swiss francs, and other currencies in order to buy up the dollars. . .

The Vaccine Hoax is Over
September 29, 2012 Freedom of Information Act in the UK filed by a doctor there has revealed 30 years of secret official documents showing that government experts have:
1. Known the vaccines don't work
2. Known they cause the diseases they are supposed to prevent
3. Known they are a hazard to children
4. Colluded to lie to the public
5. Worked to prevent safety studies
Those are the same vaccines that are mandated to children in the US.
Educated parents can either get their children out of harm's way or continue living inside one of the largest most evil lies in history, that vaccinesfull of heavy metals, viral diseases, mycoplasma, fecal material, DNA fragments from other species, formaldehyde, polysorbate 80 (a sterilizing agent)are a miracle of modern medicine.
Freedom of Information Act filed in the US with the CDC by a doctor with an autistic son, seeking information on what the CDC knows about the dangers of vaccines, had by law to be responded to in 20 days. Nearly 7 years later, the doctor went to court and the CDC argued it does not have to turn over documents. A judge ordered the CDC to turn over the documents on September 30th, 2011.
On October 26, 2011, a Denver Post editorial expressed shock that the Obama administration, after promising to be especially transparent, was proposing changes to the Freedom of Information Act that would allow it to go beyond declaring some documents secret and to actually allow government agencies (such as the CDC) to declare some document "non-existent."
Simultaneous to this on-going massive CDC cover up involving its primary "health," not recommendation, but MANDATE for American children, the CDC is in deep trouble over its decades of covering up the damaging effects of fluoride affecting the lives of all Americans, especially children and the immune compromised. Lawsuits are being prepared. Children are ingesting 3-4 times more fluoride by body weight as adults and "[t]he sheer number of potentially harmed citizenspersons with dental fluorosis, kidney patients tipped into needing dialysis, diabetics, thyroid patients, etcnumbers in the millions." The CDC is obviously acting against the health of the American people. But the threat to the lives of the American people posed by the CDC's behavior does not stop there. . .

Comment: Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), we know the vaccine schedule is a hoax. The health danger to American children and adults are vaccines.
How Britain tortured Nazi POWs
October 26 2012, The German SS officer was fighting to save himself from the gallows for a terrible war crime and might say anything to escape the noose. But Fritz Kn÷chlein was not lying in 1946 when he claimed that, in captivity in London, he had been tortured by British soldiers to force a confession out of him. . .
Thousands of Germans passed through the unit that became known as the London Cage, where they were beaten, deprived of sleep and forced to assume stress positions for days at a time. Some were told they were to be murdered and their bodies quietly buried. Others were threatened with unnecessary surgery carried out by people with no medical qualifications. Guards boasted that they were 'the English Gestapo.' The London Cage was part of a network of nine 'cages' around Britain run by the Prisoner of War Interrogation Section (PWIS), which came under the jurisdiction of the Directorate of Military Intelligence. . . Full story: dailymail.co.uk.
Comment: As horrific as conditions were at the London Cage, Bad Nenndorf was far worse.
We hear a lot about terrible crimes committed by Germans during World War II, but we hear very little about crimes committed against Germans. Germany's defeat in May 1945, and the end of World War II in Europe, did not bring an end to death and suffering for the vanquished German people. Instead the victorious Allies ushered in a horrible new era of destruction, looting, starvation, rape, 'ethnic cleansing,' and mass killingone that Time magazine called 'history's most terrifying peace'. . .
Consecrating a Royal Priesthood
I Peter 2:9, "You are an elect lineage, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a purchased people; that you should show express the virtues of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous Light".
In the solitude of Sinai, God directed Moses to separate Aaron and his sons for an hereditary priesthood (Exodus 28:1), and gave minute directions for their official dress, for their consecration and their duties (Exodus 28 29).
Emphasis is everywhere placed upon the fact that like their Antitype they were appointed of God. "No man can take to himself the honor of being high priest. He must be called of God, as was Aaron. Even Christ did not elect Himself to this honor; but was chosen of God when He said, My Son, this day have I begotten You. And again, You have been chosen to be a priest forever with the same rank as Melchisedec" (Hebrews 5:4-6).
Aaron the high priest, his sons and the Levites were a gift to the children of Israel to serve God in the Tabernacle and to bear away their sins by ordained means. In no sense were the Levites appointed by the people; had they been they could not have mediated in their behalf because "a mediator is not a mediator of one party only" (Galatians 3:20). Today God's five-fold ministry of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers are all sons by our High Priest, Jesus Christ, chosen and appointed of God as His gift to men for the perfection of the Body (Ephesians 4:8-13). Our priesthood is also hereditary (Hebrews 2:10-11). Our High Priest and Judge, the five-fold ministry and every living saint in the body of Christ has the ministry of intercession to reconcile the world to the Word (II Corinthians 5:18-20).
The Levitical system emphasized the fact that the sacrifices had no efficacy in themselves, but like the priesthood (and the five-fold ministry) derived their whole value from Divine appointment. They themselves needed atonement, and were obliged to offer for their own sins; yet by the commanded anointing and dress they were made acceptable intercessors and mediators for the people. All of this was ordained of God but the priests' imperfection showed they were but a type of that Seed Who would make true reconciliation with God by the restoration of holiness to man, interceding through the seven Church Ages of PART-Word while the Bible was sealed (Hebrews 7:28).
On the first day of Nisan in the second year the Tabernacle was set up (Exodus 40:17). After its dedication, Moses instructed Israel in the Law of sacrifices, and in conduct, order and doctrine for the church in the wilderness. Next he washed, dressed, anointed, offered sacrifices for and consecrated Aaron and his sons. Their consecration required them to remain in the Tabernacle for seven days, and Aaron's priesthood like that of Christ, commenced on the eighth day, it being the fiftieth day of the feast of Pentecost when the Christian Church was dedicated.
The Tabernacle and its furnishings in the earthly sanctuary were dedicated before service had begun and Aaron was dedicated to the work of the sanctuary as high priest. Since each step of their service was a type, which would later be fulfilled literally in Christ's ministry when He became our High Priest. The details of this dedication service are described in Leviticus 8-9. The outstanding points are:
The consecration of Aaron was public with the people gathered before the wide opening of the court probably represented by the elders of the Tribes, with the mass of men generally standing upon the surrounding heights which overlooked the Tabernacle. By their presence they were assenting to the consecration of one who was to minister among them and for them as those on Jordan's shore bore witness after Jesus was washed, dedicated, and anointed by the Shekinah like a dove in the sight of John the Baptist, and vindicated by the heavenly Voice: "This is My beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased".
In 1933 when Brother Branham was baptizing the seventeenth of 500 people in the Ohio River before a crowd of 5,000, he was anointed by the Shekinah in the form of a star and a heavenly Voice said, "As John the Baptist foreran My first Coming, your Message will forerun My second Coming".
Before Aaron was anointed high priest he first bathed his whole body (Exodus 29:4) as practiced on the great day of Atonement and as Christ did before entering upon His public ministry (Leviticus 16:4; Matthew 3:13-17). As Aaron was anointed with oil, "God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: Who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with Him" (Acts 10:38). And as priests unto God we must first confess our sins, present the sacrifice of our faith, and be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of past sins after which the Anointing is promised those who press in to the Kingdom (Acts 2:38-39; Hebrews 10:22).
Aaron was robed in the priestly garments of office. Then his sons, typing the five-fold ministry, were clothed. We like Christ, are robed in character from within (Ephesians 6:11-18; II Peter 1:5-8; Revelation 3:18; 19:7-8). After sacrifices and accompanying ceremonies these typical things in the Tabernacle were reconciled by the blood of the typical sacrifice as all things in heaven and in earth are reconciled to God by the blood of the Cross (Colossians 1:20). In all these things Moses acted as priest for Aaron as the Holy Spirit in Christ offered up His blood to God (Hebrews 9:14).
Whereas Aaron was consecrated by these sacrifices to be a priest, "daily offering the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins" . . . "Christ after He had offered a single sacrifice for sins that shall avail for all time has forever completely cleansed and consecrated as priests them that are sanctified" (Hebrews 10:11-14; Revelation 1:5-6). That's you, me and all of His elect.
After this dedication Aaron and his sons were to pass seven days in holy seclusion in the court. For seven days they were to bring the appointed sacrifices and to live on the sacrifice of consecration; what remained was to be burned. And Christ's Bride was hidden from the world in a spiritual wilderness for seven Church Ages, living on the faith once delivered to the apostolic saints. When the Ephesian Age left its first love, the Word, the faith became lost, subverted and perverted such that any traditions left over from a previous Age were to be burned with fire in the succeeding dispensation. We are to walk in the Light of the present Truth, not impersonate the Messages of Luther, Wesley or some other day gone by. Since the seven Church Ages are all fulfilled, and the revelation of the Seven Seals has restored the apostolic faith and finished mystery of God, those things and Christ's mediation are done away (I Corinthians 13:10).
We now feast upon the living Body Word of Christ, the fullness (Leviticus 8:31-36; Revelation 10:7; 18:4). The revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963 brought Christ back to earth in Word Form. Being Attributes of the Logos, the angels of God, our theophanies, came with Him (I Thessalonians 4:14), for through the invisible union we are one. When the last member of the Bride is joined in love to her Husband, there'll be a resurrection. The royal priesthood will manifest the Sons of God, taking victory over death and the grave and rise to the Wedding Supper in the Sky. Then together with Christ we will be revealed to Israel as his King and Queen (Revelation 15:3-4).
Throughout the Book of Revelation John represents the end-time Bride. In the Spirit John stood in the court of the heavenly Temple and recorded what he saw through seven Church Ages just as Aaron and his sons and the Levites (typing the Church Age saints under golden Altar) had kept holy watch in the court of the Tabernacle seven days under penalty of death. And "no man was able to enter into the Holy of Holies until the seven plagues of the seven angels [to the Church Ages] were fulfilled" (Revelation 15:8).
On the eighth day, Moses passed over to Aaron the duty of directing the people in their sacrifices as their appointed and consecrated high priest. He has explained what is to be done on the eighth day, announcing beforehand the appearance of the glory of the Lord so the people may be intelligent witnesses. Thereafter Aaron and every succeeding high priest was a mediator between Israel and God, interceding for inadvertent and ignorant mistakes. A perfect type of Christ, and when Aaron came out of the tabernacle he blessed the people and "the glory of the Lord" appeared (Leviticus 9:23).
In the Heavenly sanctuary Jesus Christ received the Office of High Priest and spent seven Church Ages in seclusion consecrating with the Church Age saints like Aaron and his sons the priests who were their type, and only Christ went beyond the Vail into the Holy of Holies. When the eighth day (which was the fiftieth day following the seven sabbaths of the Pentecostal feast or Church Ages) drew nigh, the glory of the Lord appeared above Arizona on February 28, 1963, signifying the imminent end of the Church Ages of PART-Word and that the second or 'parousia' Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ was at hand. Several months earlier Brother Branham was shown this in a vision which he described in, "Sirs, is This the [Sign of] the End-Time?" (Matthew 24:3; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7).
Christ gave us the open Bible by the revelation of the Seven Seals in this holy convocation after the Church Ages saying, "You must re-present this revelation before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings" (Revelation 10:11).
Two is a confirmation or intensification, three is perfection, five is the number of grace, seven is the number of completion, and eight signifies eternity while ten is the number of closed history, the reckoning-up of twice five, well-used or ill-used freedom; grace received or grace rejected, and is the number of judgment. Brother Branham said, "ten, is a bad number. They had ten tribes of Israel, and they was just all carnal. And he had to take Joseph's two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh the prophet's children and bless them. And when he did, his hands crossed. And he said, "Father, not so, you put your hands on Ephraim, it should be on Manasseh." He said, "God crossed my hands". . . Taking it from the older son, the Law, and putting it up over on Christ. And . . . through the cross, came the change of the birthright . . . to the younger son" [the Gentile Church] (The Countdown, p. 12:79-82).
Three years were occupied quarrying and perfecting the stones for Solomon's Temple, while seven additional years were required to assemble and complete the building which was a type of God's dwelling place in His elect. Ten years altogether.
There were ten days from Christ's ascension to the dedication of the Church. After the Dark Ages, three Church Ages were required to rediscover and restore the apostolic faith, and from the close of the Gentile dispensation seven more years known as Daniel's Seventieth Week will be required to "build again the Tabernacle of David, which is fallen down" or gather Israel's elect and restore the kingdom to Israel in the millennium (Acts 15:16).
In the memorial of the feast of Trumpets during the first three and a half years of Daniel's Seventieth Week two prophets will reveal the judgments God has poured upon Israel from Calvary to their Atonement. This revelation will gather 144,000 elect Israelites for their feast of Atonement which will follow after ten days and form the climax of Israel's history in their purification and the birth of the nation in one day.
The feast of Trumpets and the day of Atonement were both holy convocations. In the former no servile work was permitted whereas in the latter no work whatever was permitted: all were to fast and afflict their souls upon penalty of damnation. The people as a nation did not gather to the Tabernacle, Temple or synagogue on either day but personally contemplated as individuals, for in the fulfillment of these feasts, God will separate 144,000 elect individuals by faith out from their nation, from their tribes and from their families (Zechariah 12:10-13:2). Revelation will unite them with Him in a new birth, the preliminary condition qualifying them to the feast of Tabernacles which, like the feast of Unleavened Bread, commences on the fifteenth day of the month (or eight day) and not the fourteenth.
The feast of Tabernacles spanned seven-days. The first six type man's earthly journey laboring against sin six thousand years, while the seventh represents completion of his labors with a millennial sabbath or rest. At the end of this period comes the general resurrection and white throne judgment followed by an eighth day of endless Eternity in a renewed heavens and earth.
Meanwhile in the solitude of "silence in heaven about the space of half an hour", God has been calling the wise and foolish virgin out from Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches into maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 8:1; 18:4).

The Baptism of the Holy Ghost without Sensation
By Dean Gilchrist
The Doctrine that the serpent taught Eve in the Garden of Eden was that life comes through and by an experience of a sensation involving the flesh, an experience where one can know the time and the place and "LOOK BACK" to the very moment when life was conceived. This sounds very true and wonderful to the carnal minded, but it was not Gods way of imparting life then, nor is it his way now.
The evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost by a fleshly manifestation of speaking in unknown tongues or some other supernatural experience is a Pentecostal denominational teaching of the last age, it is certainly not Message or Bible truth, and sadly some who have been raised under this teaching have tried to carry it over into the Message.
The true baptism of the Holy Ghost in this hour does not come by a shiver and a shake, or shouting and rolling on the floor, or speaking in unknown tongues, regardless of how wonderful and true and even God-given these experiences might be, these supernatural encounters are in no way to be regarded as an evidence that we have received the Holy Ghost, as Satan can impersonate all of these things.
One of the mysteries that has been revealed in this hour by the seventh angel is the mystery of the baptism of the Holy Ghost without sensation.
In I Peter 1:23 says, "Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which lives and abides forever".
There is nothing greater and more Life-giving then the true Word of God for the hour in which you live, the true baptism of the Holy Ghost is to receive the Word for your day revealed to you personally by the Holy Ghost. John 16:13a, "Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth".
Mary was chosen to bring forth the literal Life of God into manifestation; if we study how God achieved this with Mary we will see how we must do the same in this hour. Firstly God sent Mary an Angel with a Message, and his Message was the Word of God for that season. At first Mary did not fully comprehend the Message spoken by the Angel yet in her heart she knew it was from God, she received the voice of the messenger saying "Let it be unto me according to thy WORD." After that the Angel departed from her; the Messenger left the scene, and some time afterwards and without any sensation, the Life of God Himself began to develop in Mary's womb.
Eve brought forth life by a shiver and a shake of a false word experience, it wasn't Gods way. It sure brought forth life, but it was the wrong kind of life which produced a hybrid to the Word of God that ended in Death. Mary brought forth the true Life of God the way God intended it should come, by His spoken Word though the Message of an Angel and without sensation.
Jesus Christ said, "It is the Spirit that gives life; the flesh is of no avail: the Words I have spoken to you, are Spirit, and Life" (John 6:63). God's Word is His Spirit in a form we can receive by faith.
The true evidence of the Holy Ghost is not to be measured by experience, but by the Word that you receive, as Brother Branham said, the true evidence of the baptism with the Holy Ghost, which is the new birth, is a life lived by a clear revelation of the "present Truth," the Word for your day. That is the true evidence according to Jesus Christ Himself.
Many times God will use supernatural encounters and experiences to change the course of our lives and attitudes towards him, and lead us forward in Christian knowledge and maturity. Yes, God does deal with us in this manner, and oh how we love Him for it, yet we are not to confuse supernatural experiences with the baptism of the Holy Ghost and regeneration.
The key to receiving the true baptism of the Holy Ghost in this hour is to keep walking in the Light of the revealed Word until it is quickened and made clear to you by God Himself and becomes a true faith in your heart and Soul; in other words you believe (mentally) all the way unto receiving true revelationFaith that only God Himself can give you. It is a process just like natural birth.
The Holy Ghost in this hour is the Person of the Word which is Jesus Christ revealed personally to you through the voice of the seventh and last angel shining Light on the Scriptures151;a son of man (William Branham) revealing the Son of man (Jesus Christ) to you personally.
Let me paraphrase Malachi 4:5-6, "Behold, I will send YOU Elijah the prophet [who was William Branham, the seventh angel (Revelation 10:7) as I sent the Angel Gabriel to Mary] before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord, and his Message (which is My WORD) shall restore the understanding of My elect children to the faith (Holy Ghost) once delivered to our apostolic fathers".
As Jesus said, "My Words are Spirit, and eternal Life." God imparts His eternal Life to us by His spoken Word, there is nothing greater than the revealed Word of God in the heart of a believer. Jesus said, "Upon this rock of Spiritual revelation, which is faith, I will build My Church." Never did He say that He would build His Church upon a sensation or an experience. "Heavens and earth will pass away or change" (Matthew 24:35), but the revelation of God's Word as revealed to the heart of an individual by the Holy Ghost will never pass away or change and must be fulfilled (Isaiah 55:11; Malachi 3:6). Brother Branham said, "Away with experience as your measuring line. There is only one plumb line, only one rod, and that is the WORD." If you'll notice he didn't say away with supernatural experiences, it's just that we are to do away with them as a measurement of evidence. I trust you can see the truth and balance to this subject as revealed by the seventh Angel. May God bless and keep you all in his loving and tender care. nl760.htm
