Bible Believers' Newsletter 926
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we extend an especial welcome to our new subscribers.
It appears 'the Donald' may be America's "Great (and) Last Trump," and Killary Clinton its third last First Lady. Either way, these puppets will be overruled by "a most beautiful, but cruel woman who will hold the people in her complete power" as the Lord showed Brother Branham in seven consecutive visions in 1933. In AD95-96 the Apostle John saw visions of the same woman "seated on a scarlet-coloured beast . . . arrayed in purple, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls" (Revelation 17:3-4; 13:11-18).
Today we proceed with our study on the Pentecostal Jubilee, the seventieth jubilee of 1977 that William Branham declared by divine inspiration "should terminate the world systems and usher in the millennium." His prophetic words have come to pass as we demonstrate by historical fact. Please take time to read carefully and prayerfully.
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.

Germany's Foreign Intelligence Service to become Branch of America's CIA?
June 8, 2016 — According to a news report in the June 7th German Economic News (DWN), headlined "Merkel Ousts BND: US to Control German Espionage," a new law will soon be passed in the German parliament and be approved by Chancellor Angela Merkel, which will make Germany's version of the CIA, the Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND), nothing more than a branch of the CIA . . . This could be part of the West's build-up toward a global war. According to a report issued on June 6th in German Economic News, the German government is preparing to go to war against Russia, and has in draft-form a Bundeswehr report declaring Russia to be an enemy nation . . . a clear subordination of the German government to the US government, in a period of preparation for a NATO war against Russia . . .

Brexit and the Real Agenda behind the CIA spawning the EU
May 5, 2016 US intelligence community was responsible for usurping Europeans' right to self-government, in an effort to impose what Obama recently called "one of the greatest political and economic achievements of modern times" . . . Under scrutiny is the critical backing the EU and its predecessor outfits received at every step of the way from top globalists within the US government, and in particular from the CIA and its predecessor. The real goal was always what globalists called an "Atlantic Union," and eventually, a global government. And as the Obama-backed US-EU merger known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) moves forward that remains the case today, just under a new name and new marketing slogans . . . the nucleus of a future EU-style "Atlantic Union" government to rule over both the United States and the EU ...
The US government has similarly supported integration in Africa, Latin America, Asia, the Middle East, and beyond. The eventual goal . . . a single global system . . . the NWO. Full story: thenewamerican.com
Comment: Note: US Central Command occupies Yemen, Oman, the Emirates, Saudi Arabia, most of the Arabian Sea, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, all of the other 'stans,' Khazaria, Kazakhstan, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Israel, and Egypt. This is the plan described by Jewish General Wesley Clark who "thinks about running for president every day."
Jewish MI6 agent Sir Henry Kissinger reportedly stated, "Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people".
Hillary Clinton: electing [another] 'Foreign Spy' for President?
June 6, 2016 Clinton has circulated more vital top-secret documents and classified material than Jonathan Pollard. President Obama and other top Cabinet officials share her political alliances, but they operate through 'legitimate' channels and without compromising personnel, missions, funding or programs.
The executive leadership now faces the problem of how to deal with a traitor, who may be the Democratic Party nominee for US President, without undermining the US quest for global power. How do the executive leadership and intelligence agencies back a foreign spy for president, who has been deeply compromised and can be blackmailed? This may explain why the FBI, NSA, and CIA hesitate to press charges; hesitate to even seriously investigate, despite the obvious nature of her offenses. Most of all it explains why there is no indication of the identity of Secretary Clinton's correspondents in the various reports so far available . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Divide and Rule: Federal Elections Down Under
Alexander Fraser Tytler wrote: "A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to apathy; from apathy to dependence; from dependence back into bondage".
Brother Branham said, "As we see the days darkening, as we see the shadows falling . . . When I predict it's just a few more turns of the sun this nation's gone. Do you know, yesterday, fourth of July, where Thomas Jefferson had signed the Declaration of Independence, him and the other board that was with him, and the Liberty Bell rang, and we was declared an independence as a nation . . . According to history there has never been a democracy at any time last over two hundred years. And that was 1776, July the fourth. And we're just eleven years left [1964 +11 = 1975 . . . 1977]. Will it make it? No, can't. Eleven years, and if it does, it'll break all history" (The Masterpiece, p. 15:76).
The end of the Hegelian two-party controlled sham democratic world-system and the Gentile dispensation "is nigh, even at the doors" (Mark 13:29). Judaeo-Communism and Judaeo-Catholicism have sown carnal reasoning to reap apostasy and destroy once homogenous Christian nations from within. Now like "Herod that old fox" Jews Killary Clinton, Barack Obama, David Cameron, François Hollande, Angela Merkel, Recep Erdogan, Salman Al Saud, Malcolm Turnbull and John Keys dictate.

Comment: Serving the international banksters with undeclared wars funded by unrepayable credit created out of thin air, deindustrializing, introducing inassimilable races, creeds and cultures, dumbing-down citizens brainwashed from cradle to grave by religious chutzpah, unhistorical lies, pernicious propaganda, tasteless music, entertainments, 'recreational' drugs, homosexuality and promiscuity transforming the City of London's vassal states into brothels like Germany when invaded by aliens from the east who set up the Weimar Republic.
Protocol 6.6-8: We must intensively patronize trade and industry, but, first and foremost, speculation, the part played by which is to provide a counterpoise to industry: the absence of speculative industry will multiply capital in private hands and will serve to restore agriculture by freeing the land from indebtedness to the land banks. What we want is that industry should drain off from the land both labour and capital and by means of speculation transfer into our hands all the money of the world, and thereby throw all the GOYIM into the ranks of the proletariat. Then the GOYIM will bow down before us, if for no other reason but to get the right to exist.
To complete the ruin of the industry of the GOYIM we shall bring to the assistance of speculation the luxury which we have developed among the GOYIM, that greedy demand for luxury which is swallowing up everything. We shall raise the rate of wages which, however, will not bring any advantage to the workers, for, at the same time, we shall produce a rise in prices of the first necessaries of life, alleging that it arises from the decline of agriculture and cattle-breeding: we shall further undermine artfully and deeply sources of production, by accustoming the workers to anarchy and to drunkenness and side by side therewith taking all measure to extirpate from the face of the earth all the educated forces of the "GOYIM."
In order that the true meaning of things may not strike the "GOYIM" before the proper time we shall mask it under an alleged ardent desire to serve the working classes and the great principles of political economy about which our economic theories are carrying on an energetic propaganda.
Protocol 10.19: But you yourselves perfectly well know that to produce the possibility of the expression of such wishes by all the nations it is indispensable to trouble in all countries the people's relations with their governments so as to utterly exhaust humanity with dissension, hatred, struggle, envy and even by the use of torture, by starvation, by the inoculation of diseases, by want, so that the "GOYIM" see no other issue than to take refuge in our complete sovereignty in money and in all else.
Good Man brainwashed by Pulpit Delinquency and Historical Lies
June 8, 2016 Professor Cooper Harriss of Indiana University was interviewed on "the Louisville lip," Muhammad Ali, born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. (January 17, 1942 – June 3, 2016), an American Olympic and professional boxer, widely regarded as one of the most significant and celebrated sports figures of the 20th century.
From early in his career, Ali was known as an inspiring, controversial and polarizing figure both inside and outside the ring. I have seen several interviews of this impressive, articulate and intelligent athlete who, perhaps through Muslim minister Louis Farrakhan, exhibited a closer understanding of certain elements of God's will than most so-called Christians.
Professor Harriss is writing a biography of the boxer: "In church he would look at the stained glass illuminations of Jesus and angels, and they were all white. His name, Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr., once belonged to a white man, and white men brought the slaves to America".
Clay became a Muslim: testimony to the apostasy and disservice of Christian churches (so-called) whose ministry is as thin as the shadow of the broth of a chicken that starved to death. It is unlikely Jesus Christ was a white man as Israelites and their Semitic relations are not white. In countries other than America Jesus and angels may be portrayed in another hue. (Incidentally Mohammed looked down on dark-skinned people as did Jewry's most esteemed seer, Moses Maimonides).
As a sometime member of Louis Farrakhan's "Nation of Islam," Muhammad Ali would have known that the Negroes were not purchased, transported to or traded in America by "white men," but by so-called Jews in Jewish-owned ships and sold to Jewish slave dealers and owners in America whose descendants control media, education and entertainment worldwide, manipulating truth into the propaganda Mohammad Ali swallowed.
Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. changed his name from that of his father who had been named after Cassius Marcellus Clay, the six-foot, three-inch, two-hundred and thirty pound white man because he freed Muhammad Ali's Great-Great Grandfather . . . and because he did so much to put an end to slavery. As Jewish author and insider George Orwell (Eric Blair) disclosed, in these last days war would be 'peace,' hate would be 'love,' lies would be the 'truth' and genocide would be 'humanitarian aid.' Zionista Killary Clinton and the Neocon's US State Department are exemplars.
CANADA: The New Sodom and Gomorrah?
June 4, 2016 On May 17th, 2016, a day recognized by the federal government as "International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia," an edict emanated from PM Justin Trudeau's office stating that Liberal government was planning to make additional changes to the 'Hate Propaganda' laws (Sections 318 to 320) of the Criminal Code of Canada in order to 'protect' the nation's sexually deviant members.
The unabashed and strident manner in which the federal government is pushing forward with its controversial agenda of planned perversion and subversion of Canadian society (under the guise of supposed 'human rights' for sexual aberrants) is an issue fraught with deep and troubling concern, not only those Canadians of the Christian faith who prefer to rely upon the eternal wisdom of God and Nature but also for millions of other citizens whose moral standards won't permit them to accept the subversive and sinister hidden aim within the government's mandate to criminalize public dissent and discussion on moral, ethical and health standards affecting the nation as a whole.
In the words of the PM, "To do its part, the Government of Canada today will introduce legislation that will help ensure transgender and other gender-diverse people can live according to their gender identity, free from discrimination, and protected from hate propaganda and hate crimes" . . .

Comment: Luke 17:28-30, "As it was in the days of Lot; they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed." And so it is. Though the antediluvian world and the cities of the plain were awfully wicked, it is not their wickedness, but their worldliness, their unbelief and indifference to the future, their unpreparedness, that is here held up as a warning to the last or Laodicea Church Age which ended in apostasy in 1963 (Revelation 3:14-22). It's name means "human rights".

Wall Street behind Brazil Coup d'Etat
June 1, 2016 Control over monetary policy and macro-economic reform was the ultimate objective of the coup d'etat. The key appointments from Wall Street's standpoint are the Central Bank, which dominates monetary policy as well as foreign exchange transactions, the Ministry of Finance and the Bank of Brazil (Banco do Brasil). On behalf of Wall Street and the 'Washington consensus', the interim post coup 'government' of Michel Temer has appointed a former Wall Street CEO (with US citizenship) to head the Ministry of Finance. Henrique de Campos Meirelles, a former President of FleetBoston Financial's Global Banking (1999-2002), US Embassy informant] and former head of the Central Bank under Lula's presidency was appointed minister of finance on May 12.

The Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation
Kissinger, one of the key strategists of Nixon, nurtured by the Rockefellers, prepared what is known as National Security Study Memo (NSSM#200), in which he elaborated his plan for population reduction. In this Memo he specifically targets thirteen countries: Bangladesh, Brazil, Colombia, Egypt, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Turkey, Thailand, and The Philippines . . .
Pause to think: a normal healthy person can at the most go without food for perhaps seven days but it takes a full season, say around four months, for a seed to grow into food crop. Just five agri-biz corporations, all US based (Cargill, Bunge, Archer Daniels, et al), control global grain trade, and just five control global trade in seeds. Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, DuPont, and Dow Chemicals control genetically engineered seeds . . . "The clear strategy of Monsanto, Dow, DuPont and the Washington Government backing them was to introduce the GMO seeds in every corner of the globe, with priority on defenceless . . .

Jubilee Part VI
Revelation 10:1-7, "And I saw another mighty Angel descending out of heaven, [Christ, the Archangel (Revelation 1:18; 18:1; 20:1; Ezekiel 43:2)], clothed with a cloud: and the [360° horizontal] rainbow (Revelation 4:3; 21:11, 23) was upon His head, and His face was like the sun and His feet as pillars of fire [denoting divine judgment] (Matthew 17:2; Revelation 1:12-16; 2:18-23) and having in His [left] hand a little Book open [which is the Book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ, the Title Deed of Redemption], He set His right foot upon the sea, and His left foot upon the earth, and cried with a great voice, as a lion roars: and when He cried, the seven thunders spoke their voices".
Redemption is over; He is no longer the Lamb, He is the Lion, and as such He is the Judge. With His right foot He has placed judgment on Rome, the beast from the sea (Revelation 13:1; 17:1 – 18:20), and with His left foot He has placed judgment on the United States, the beast from the earth (Revelation 13:11; 18:21-24).
"And when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write: and I heard a voice out of the heaven saying, Seal the things which the seven thunders spoke, and write them not. And the angel that I saw standing upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up His [right] hand to heaven, and swore by Him that lives forever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that [Gk. cronoV chronos time or] delay [for Christ's Bride of all Ages] shall be no longer: but in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel, when He shall begin to sound, the mystery of God is finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets".
Revelation 10:1-6 describes John's vision of Christ's descent on Mount Sunset, Arizona, on March 8, 1963 when Brother Branham was caught up into a constellation of the theophanies of the seven Church Age messengers portraying the Head of Christ, the Capstone of the Body. He held the open Book and declared mediation for ignorance of "the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication" is fulfilled (COD, 1,005:57; I Corinthians 13:10), and redemption is over. The vision of Daniel 11:31 – 12:4 portends Daniel's Seventieth Week almost to the consummation and Daniel is commanded: "shut up the words, and seal the Book unto the time of the end." In verses 5-10 he enters a new vision set at the start of the Seventieth Week and parallel to Mount Transfiguration in Matthew 17:1-9. There Peter, James and John saw Israel's two prophets (Zechariah 4; Matthew 24:31; Revelation 11:3-12) expound the Seven Trumpet Judgments with which God chastised the Israelites throughout the Christian dispensation for rejecting the seven Gospel trumpets of grace calling them to repentance and new birth. Their 'Moses' will bring to remembrance "the Law which God commanded him for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments" whence Israel fell and was a shadow of good things to come under the New Testament (Malachi 4:4). Their 'Elijah' will expound the Seven Trumpet mysteries to align the past 2,000 year's history with prophecy. Together their ministries will forerun Christ's second (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming to Israel as Brother Branham foreran His second or parousia Coming to Christ's end-time Bride.
Three is a witness and Peter, James and John who saw the ushering in of the millennium represent 144,000 Israelites who will recognise Christ's second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming through the ministry of their prophets. Their revelation and new birth will "complete His Coming" (ibid, p. 322:4). Since the Armistice of World War I Christ has commanded Satan personified in the four angels or horses of the apocalypse signifying the four Gentile world empires God employed to chastise Israel throughout "the times of the Gentiles" (Luke 21:24). Subsumed in Imperial and Papal Rome (Revelation 13:1-3) they have inflicted seven Trumpet judgments upon the unbelieving Israelites and persecuted the true Church. Revelation 7:1-8 foretold how Christ would restrain them from destroying the beast from the sea, and the beast from the earth (Revelation 13) until He has sealed the 144,000 elect Israelites by the revelation of His second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel. Thereafter the world will descend into Armageddon.
In the vision of Daniel 11:31 – 12:4 Christ stood upon the River of Life; on one bank stood Israel's 'Moses' with the Old Testament whence Israel apostatised, while their 'Elijah' stood on the other bank with the New Testament revelation of the Seven Trumpet mysteries. One asked Messiah, "How long will it be to the end of these terrors (Revelation 11:4-7)? And I heard the Man clothed in linen, who was upon the waters of the river, when He held up His right hand and His left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever that it will be for a time, times, and an half; and when he has scattered the power of the holy people [by abrogating his covenant with Jewry], all these things will be finished?"
Daniel 12:8-13, "I heard but could not understand; so I said, My Lord, what will be the outcome of these events? And He said, Go your way, Daniel: for these words are concealed and sealed up until the end time. Many will be purified, made white and tried; but the wicked will do wickedly: and none of the wicked will understand; but the wise will understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away and the desolating abomination is set up, there will be 1,290 days [which is the first half of the Seventieth Week three and a half years plus one intercalary month when the beast abrogates his covenant with the international self-styled Jews] (Isaiah 14:12-14; Daniel 9:27; 11:31, 36; II Thessalonians 2:4; Revelation 13:14-18; 17:16-18). Blessed is who endures, and comes to the 1,335 days [or three and a half years and 75 days beyond the midst of the Seventieth Week (Ezekiel 43; Revelation 7:3; 14:1-5, 13]. But carry on to the end of your days: for you will rest, and rise again at the end of the Old Testament dispensation" (Matthew 27:52-53).
Brother Branham explained, "Revelations 8:1 . . . (this Seventh Seal is the end of time of all things. That's right. The things written in the Seven Seal Book (sealed up of the plan of redemption from before the foundation of the world), it every bit ends. It is the end; it is the end of the struggling world. It's the end of struggling nature. It's the end of everything. In there is the end of the trumpets. It's the end of the vials. It's the end of the earth. It's even the end of time. Time runs out; the Bible said so."
"Revelations the 10th chapter and 1 to the 7th verse. Time runs out. The angel said, "Time will be no more," in the days of this great thing to happen. Everything runs out in this time at the end of this Seventh Seal. Notice, it's the end of the Church Age. It's the end of the Seven Seals. It's the end of the Trumpets. It's the end of the Vials, and even ends the ushering in of the millennium; that's on the Seventh Seal" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 555:6 – 556:2).
"The Coming of Christ ushers in the Millennium . . . But let me just drop this into your heart: there will never be a Jesus set a foot on this earth until the Church is done raptured and gone. Now, just bear that in mind, 'cause there'll be false christs rise up. But Jesus will not be here on earth; 'cause the trumpet sounds, and He never comes; we meet Him in the air (the Church is already gone). And then when Jesus appears, it'll be the returning back. The Gentiles goes to meet Him in the air. That Scripture? See? They go to meet Him in the air, and then we go up. And Jesus is—never puts His feet on the earth until the church has been raptured and took home and the wedding supper's over in heaven, and then He returns back after the
JewishIsraelite remnant" (The Sardisean Church Age, p. 343:67-68; Revelation Chapter Four, Part I, p. 574:132-187; An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 41; 322:4).
"The millennium sets in" or is "ushered in" by the rebirth of 144,000 elect Israelites in one day when they recognize Christ's second or parousia Coming by faith (Zechariah 12:9-14; Revelation 1:7; 11:13; 15-19; Daniel p. 77:133-134); this is not the physical return of the glorified Man.
"Look, that's the same way. As that Supernatural brought in the Gentile kingdom, so the Supernatural is taking out this of the Gentiles. The kingdom was ushered in by the Supernatural; it's going out by the Supernatural. The walls of Jerusalem shall be trod . . . "Gentiles will possess it until the Gentile dispensation be finished." Then God turns to the
Jew. Amen. Oh, my (COD, p. 74:93; Luke 21:24). The population of the modern Israel state is almost exclusively non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews or Semitic Muslims.
"Before the atomic powers ever blow this earth to pieces, the Church will be gone. We're so glad, Lord. And we know that the bombs are hanging in the hangers tonight. And we can look towards heaven and see the Son of man rising from His throne to start towards the earth for the rapture of His church, and know that His precious feet won't touch this sinful earth at that time; for as Rebekah rode the camel and jumped off the camel right between the house of Abraham, out in the field she met her bride. O God, and the Church will meet our Bride in the air. "For we which alive and remain shall not prevent or hinder those which are asleep. The Trumpet of God shall sound, the dead in Christ shall rise first, and we shall be caught up together with them to meet the Lord in the field, in the air, and forever be with Him" (The Thyatirean Church Age, p. 288:7-8).
"The Messiah will not be on earth until the millennium sets in" (COD 582:448). "And Christ in Him has the millennium and everything right there because He is the Word" (SWOS, p. 20:1).
Based on the apocalypse of seven continuous visions the Lord showed him in 1933 along with the rapid changes which have swept the world in the last fifty years Brother Branham said, "I PREDICT (I do not prophesy) that these visions will have all come to pass by 1977. And though many may feel that this is an irresponsible statement in view of the fact that Jesus said that "no man knoweth the day nor the hour." I still maintain this prediction after thirty years because, Jesus did NOT say no man could know the year, month or week in which His Coming was to be completed. So I repeat, I sincerely believe and maintain as a private student of the Word, along with Divine inspiration that 1977 ought to terminate the world systems and usher in the millennium" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:4).
"World system" refers to the entire world, whereas "world-system" is its fragment—the largest unit of analysis that makes sense. In English, the hyphen is essential to indicate these concepts. "World system" without a hyphen suggests that there has been only one world-system in the history of the world. (Gk.) kovsmoV "Kosmos" is used of the world system "Now is the judgment of this world [system]: now shall the Prince of this world [system] be cast out" (John 12:31, Matthew 4:8, I John 5:19; What was the Holy Ghost Given For, p. 39:15).
In describing the Thyatira Church Age Brother Branham said, "As sin started in nothing but a feeling, so the death to the church started [in the Ephesian Church Age] with the simple, little noticed deeds of the Nicolaitanes. From the deeds it went to a doctrine [in the Pergamean Age]. From the doctrine it embraced the power of the state and the introduction of paganism [in the Thyatira Church Age]. Now in this age it goes to its own prophetess (teacher) and so it travels on until it will find itself in the lake of fire, for that is exactly where it is going to end up, in the second death" (ibid, p. 227; Revelation 2:20-24).
Revelation 13 "shows the power of the Roman Catholic Church and what she will do [future tense] through organization [or system]. Remember this is the false vine. Let it name the Name of the Lord, it does so only in a lie. Its headship is not of the Lord but of Satan. It finally ends up completely identified with the beast [Revelation 2:23; 19:20; 20:10]. The whore riding on the scarlet beast distinctly shows her power is the god of force (Satan) and not our God, the Lord Jesus Christ" (Daniel 11:38; Revelation 17:3).
"In verse 17, it emphatically shows that she will gain absolute control of the commerce of the earth, for no man can buy or sell apart from her. This is borne out in Revelation 18:9-17 which shows her involvement with kings, princes, merchants, all of whom have to do with Rome and commerce."
"In Revelation 13:14, we learn that the beast spreads his influence through the image which was built for him. The image that is made is a world-wide ecumenical council, wherein all the organized churches will get together with the Roman Catholics . . ." (ibid, p. 236:1-3).
". . . right now the churches are controlling politics and at the opportune time will manifest exactly how great is that control. This ecumenical move will end up with Rome at the head even though the people did not envision it that way. This is so because in Revelation 17:3-6 it states that the whore, Mystery Babylon is seated on the beast. She is controlling the last or fourth empire. This Roman Church is doing that. With the world church system under her Rome will be controlling, and this image (church system) will be obedient to Rome because Rome controls the gold of the world . . . But before the antichrist (in person) takes over this complete world system of churches the true church will be taken away from this world to be with the Lord" (ibid. p. 377).
Here is a shadow, type, and sign of the time: Laodicea "was a city of earthquakes, such earthquakes as finally destroyed it. This Age will end in God shaking the whole world that has gone off to make love with the old harlot. Not only will world systems crumble, but the very earth will be shaken and then renovated for the millennial reign of Christ" (ibid p. 320:3).
Riding his white horse under the First Seal through the Ephesian, Smyrnean and Pergamean Church Ages, Satan acquired spiritual power when he merged the pagan Babylonian religion with Christian doctrine at the Hegelian dialectic of the First Nicaea Council in AD325 to organize the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church. Under the Second Seal he mounted his red horse and charged through the Thyatira Age evangelising at the point of a sword, martyring scores of millions of Christians who withstood his dogma. This union of church and state won him political power and produced the Dark Ages for the faith was buried with the saints. Under the Third Seal he rode his black horse throughout the Sardis and Philadelphian Church Ages unleashing demonic power against the Protestant Reformation of the Judaeo-Roman system of false worship. Under the Fourth Seal Satan is identified as the horse rider and named "Death" in antithesis to Christ who is called "the Word of God" and eternal "Life." Satan has ridden his sickly green coloured horse through the Laodicean Church Age to the Bride Age en route to perdition: "Hades follows with him. And power was given to Death and Hades [personified in Satan] over the 'four parts' that is, the whole of the [inhabited] earth [The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 281:7; 415:9; 549:1; Matthew 24:31; Revelation 12:9; 13:8, 14-15], to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the wild untameable beasts of the earth [metaphorically, the brutal, bestial men who rule this evil age]" (Ezekiel 14:21; Revelation 13:7-11, 15; 17:7). His kingdom will be realized as one totalitarian world government or world system and he will rule incarnate in Rome's Pope.
The seventieth jubilee in 1977 was twelve years after the conclusion of the seventh angel's Spoken Word "finished the mystery of God" (Revelation 8:1; 10:7). This marked the age of accountability of Christ's end time Bride, awakening her to "the Voice of Christ the Archangel" whispering His secrets to place the Message from Genesis to Revelation and bring her to maturity in the unity of the faith. He is enduing us with "His mighty resurrection power which He wrought in Christ when He raised Him from the dead" (Ephesians 1:1-23; Philippians 3:10-21): to equip us to witness with the Token of His Life on display (Revelation 10:8-11), and bring us to maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Ephesians 4:11-32; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:50-58).
The significance of 1977 is not (Gk. cronoV) chronos time so much as it is (Gk. kairoV) kairos time. For when Christ opened the Seven Seals "He swore by Him that lives forever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be [chronos] time no longer" (Revelation 10:6). Chronos time ended in 1963 and redemption is over; we live "in the dispensation of the fullness of [kairos] times: the summing up of all things in His Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth" (Ephesians 1:10; Colossians 1:16, 20). 1977 was the Pentecostal jubilee marking the release of Christ's end-time Bride from the "letter" only of the Message 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, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe" (Ephesians 1:17-19).
The mind of Christ must live in us if we are to speak the Word. Our maturity in preparation for the manifestation of the Sons of God is one element that will usher in the millennium "for without us the Church Age saints cannot be raised and made perfect." The Kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan are nearing completion as Christ incarnates Himself into His beautiful Bride, and Satan incarnates himself in the children of disobedience.
"The love of money is the root of all evil" (I Timothy 6:10). Usurers monopolise the fraudulent Babylonian fractional reserve banking and fiat money world-system that underlie and overlay all world-systems be they commercial, social, religious, political or educational. The unprecedented disruption of nature foretold for the end of the Gentile dispensation will bring monetary and economic collapse, ignite the 'hot stage' of World War III, induce global depression and "squeeze" Christ's end-time Bride, elevating faith for translation grace. These events will override all world-systems, and the casting down and incarnation of Satan will enable his purple-robed Messiah to unite all religions with the state in one Judaeo-Roman new world system.
Respected Muslim minister Louis Farrakhan noted "Four things were set up in the year 1913; first the Federal Reserve Bank, the IRS, the FBI, and the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith; all were set up in the same year. Is that a coincidence, or is there a tie-in?" Moses said the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel "put enmity between the natural and spiritual seed of the Serpent and the seed of the first Adam and the last Adam" (Genesis 3:15). I believe Prophet Moses!
The Money Power is the sole world system that overrules globally. The church system of the Roman Catholic and the Protestant in coming together will control the whole wealth of the world system and force the whole earth into its religious trap, or will kill them, by refusing them the privilege of buying and selling whereby they would make a living [Revelation 13:15-18]. This will be accomplished simply, for the harlot's daughters are all but gone back to her. In the meantime, Rome has acquired nearly all the supplies of gold. The Jews have the bonds and all the paper. At the right time, the harlot will destroy the present day money system by calling in all the paper, and demanding gold. With no gold, the system falls. The Jews will be trapped and come into the alliance, and the harlot church will take over the whole world (ibid, p. 314:1).
In 1944 representatives from 44 vassal states of Jewry's empire of the City of London met to develop a new international monetary system, and to establish the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), now the World Bank (WB), and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). In 1958 the Bretton Woods System became fully operational. Countries now settled international accounts in dollars convertible to gold at US$35/ounce from the US government. Other currencies were fixed to the dollar pegged to gold and since the US owned over half the world's official gold reserves—574 million ounces at the end of World War II—the system appeared secure. From 1950 to 1969, as Germany and Japan recovered, the US share of global economic output dropped 35% to 27%. A negative balance of payments, growing public debt and monetary inflation caused the dollar to become overvalued and the US was exporting her inflation. Whereas "It costs only a few cents for the Bureau of Engraving and Printing to produce a $100 bill, other countries had to pony up $100 of actual goods in order to obtain one".
By 1966, non-US central banks held US$14 billion dollars while the US had only $13.2 billion in gold, of which $3.2 billion was available to cover foreign holdings as the rest covered domestic holdings. By 1971, the money supply had increased by 10%. In May 1971, West Germany left the Bretton Woods system, unwilling to revalue the Deutsche Mark. In the next three months, this move strengthened its economy and the dollar dropped 7.5% against the Deutsche Mark. Other nations began to demand redemption of their dollars for gold. Switzerland redeemed $50 million in July, and France acquired $191 million in gold. On August 5, 1971, the United States Congress released a report recommending devaluation of the dollar. On August 9, 1971, as the dollar dropped in value against European currencies, Switzerland left the Bretton Woods system and pressure intensified for the United States to leave Bretton Woods.
From 1977 to 1981 US inflation hit 50%. Hyperinflation! In 1978 President Carter issued Treasury bonds denominated in West German Deutschmarks and Swiss Francs (as Israel issues bonds denominated in US dollars). The US dollar was dead and has been floating ever since.
Brother Branham said, "I sincerely believe and maintain as a private student of the Word, along with Divine inspiration that 1977 ought to terminate the world systems and usher in the millennium." The world monetary system set up at Bretton Woods died before 1977 when President Richard Nixon unilaterally closed the gold window in 1971, rendering the Bretton Woods system inoperable, so that by 1973 it was replaced by a de facto regime of floating fiat currencies that remains in place to the present day.
Brother Branham prophesied an ushering-in period leading to the millennium. An usher is an official in charge of the door or entrance to a court or hall, walking before persons of rank, maintaining decorum and silence, admitting or precluding the public, and showing people to their designated seats. As Christ is the Door and He is the Word there must come a ministry that will positionally place everyone and everything within or without His Will—predestinated from the foundation of the world by His foreknowledge of the exercise of their free choice.
Brother Branham said, "Now, the Book of Ephesians, as I was just saying, to my opinion, is one of the greatest Books of the New Testament. It leaves us on where Calvinism runs out on one limb, and Arminianism runs out on the other limb, but the Book of Ephesian draws it together and positionally places the church."
"Now, I've typed it with Joshua. If you notice, Israel was brought up out of Egypt, and there's three stages of their journey. One stage was leaving Egypt. The next stage was the wilderness. And the next stage was Canaan. Now, Canaan does not represent the age of the millennium. It only represents the age of the overcomer, the dispensation of overcoming, because in Canaan they killed and burned and took cities. And there'll be no death in the millennium."
"But another thing that it does, it brings up justification by faith, after they believed in Moses and left Egypt; sanctification through following under the Pillar of Fire and the atonement of the sacrificial lamb in the wilderness; and then entering into a land that had been promised" (Ephesians Parallels Joshua, p. 19:34-37).
In A Paradox he said, ". . . The Book to be sealed up with seven mysteries, or Seven Seals, Revelations 6. And in the last day, Revelations 10, in Revelations 10, we find out that the Laodicea, last messenger of the last age, during the time of his prophecy, that the Seven Seals would be opened, the seven mysteries, sevenfold mysteries that had been left off."
"In every Age there'd been some of it left off. The reformer didn't have time to take care of it. In the days of Luther, he only preached justification by faith. He was gone, they made a church. After that come Wesley, he preached sanctification. There it was. And along come the Pentecostals."
"But we're promised, according to Revelations 10, and according to Malachi 4, and Saint Luke 22:17, and so forth, that there is got to come an Ephesians to this. There is promised it, friends. There must come an Ephesians, that these sevenfold mysteries of the Word of God must be unfolded. And it's in the Laodicean Age that this takes place. I believe that we're there."
"I believe we're right in the shadows of the Coming of the Son of God. And as Joshua, just before the Ephesians raised up, so did John the Baptist raise up just before the next Ephesians. And we're promised another, another Ephesians. It's predicted here in the Scripture; therefore, I think that we are living in the Ephesians again. Back again to . . . We are promised that what was left off during those seven ages . . ." (p. 13:87-90).
As Joshua allotted ten tribes and the half tribe of Manasseh to their positions west of the Jordan, Ephesians showed the early Church her position in Christ. Brother Branham's ministry is "another Ephesians," showing Christ's end-time Bride her place in the Capstone by revealing the position of each Church Age in the PART-Word Body which was finished and sealed in 1963. The Revelation of the Seven Seals and Brother Branham's Exposition of the Seven Church Ages demonstrate that Christ's mediation for ignorance of the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication is fulfilled and redemption is over! Joshua and the children of Israel observed the Passover in Gilgal, and on Nisan 16 which is the first Day of Pentecost, the manna ceased (Joshua 5-6)—typing our Seventh Seal at the close of the Church Ages when Christ's mediation ceased and "there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour" (Revelation 8:1). The Lord appeared to Joshua and instructed him how Israel would overcome after the Seventh Trumpet as the Pillar of Cloud appeared over Mount Sunset and "seven angels come down and blasted the earth and rocks flew every way, seven angels stood there and said, "Return back to Jeffersonville from where you come from, for the Seven Seals of the seven mysteries will be opened." These mysteries instruct us that when the Seventh Trumpet sounds the Gentile dispensation will be over, and on the third day, which will be the first Day of Pentecost, the first resurrection will commence (Matthew 27:51-53; I Thessalonians 4:16). Christ's end-time Bride must "take the little Book out of the Angel's hand and eat it up" to become one with the Word (Ephesians 4:13; Revelation 10:8-11; 18:4). Brother Branham introduced our 'Joshua,' Jesus Christ, to lead us into the eternal land of the millennium. The revelation of these mysteries is ushering in the millennium; and unless we know our position in Christ we will be impersonating the Word for a day gone by, manifesting that we are not the Sons of God.
In "Position in Christ" Brother Branham said, "And now, the purpose of these lessons is to anchor those that have already come across the land. The purpose of this study in this Book of Ephesians is to positionally place the Church where it absolutely stands in Christ. It is a type of the Old Testament and the Book of Joshua, where Joshua lotted the land to each man. And he done it by inspiration."
"How Moses brought the people out of Egypt, the garlic, leek, out, and gave them a place to where God had promised four hundred years before, that He would bring them into a place, a goodly land flow with milk and honey. And Moses led the children of Israel right up to the land, but did not take them over."
"And Jesus, to the spiritual, to the people that will . . . We been promised a Holy Spirit since the beginning; Jesus led us up to the promise. But the Holy Spirit came as Joshua to take over and lead, and direct, and to possess the land, or possess the Church" (p. 15:26-28).
In "Hear ye Him" "But Jesus was transfigured before them, God placing His Son. And He robed Him with a garment that glistened like the sun shining in its strength. And a Voice from heaven said, "This is My beloved Son; hear ye Him." Moses is gone. The Law is gone. But "this is My Son; hear ye Him."
"That ought to tell you. God placing His own Son . . . So the Law has finished. And all of the Old Testament has been lived. And there's none left but Christ. And God's someday, if the people who are borned again of the Spirit of God, and the Tutor brings Message to Father one day it's called to the side, and visited by God, and positionally placed into the Body of Christ as a teacher, prophet, evangelist, teacher, pastor, whatever you have been obedient since he's been born, God places that person. You see it?" (#57-0125).
In "Hidden Life" the Prophet said, "Now, after this child become of age . . . Now, he's still a child. But if the child was reckless, and never paid any attention, and wasn't so interested in the Father's work, that child never become adopted to that family. But if he was a correct child, a good child, and loved the work of his father, and was interested, and tried to do all he could to progress his father's work, then the tutor brought that word to the father, and there was what's called the placing of the son or as Paul gives it over in Galatians, "the adoption." That we was predestinated into the adoption of children by Jesus Christ, the adoption."
"Now, the same son that was born into a family could be adopted into the same family, or placed in the same family, or give a position in the family that he was borned into. And I do believe that that is the work of the Holy Spirit today among the church, is trying to place in the church positionally apostles, teachers, prophets, and so forth, as . . . And we've seen many false alarms and so forth moving amongst the people, which only indicated that the real genuine adoption was at hand. I believe it. God has to place into the church. That's the business of God, not of man" (#55-1006A).
Paul and Brother Branham explained that the role of the fivefold ministry is to take God's Word and "positionally place" His elected. Ephesians 4:11-16, "Jesus Himself commissioned some to be apostles; some to be prophets; some to be evangelists; and some to be pastors and some to be teachers; with the ultimate objective of perfecting [by correcting any deficiency, equipping and maturing] the saints, for the work of service toward building up the Temple of the Holy Ghost, until we all arrive at the unity of the Faith and apprehend the glory and possess the divine knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect [mature and consummate] man, [not "perfect men" for the many members constitute but one Church joined to the one Christ], unto the measure of the [spiritual] stature of the fullness of Christ [that the body is worthy of the Head, the perfect Christ]. To the end we should no longer be children, inwardly tossed to and fro as billows of the sea, and carried about with every wind of teaching from without in the sleight of men [as dice players] in subterfuge (note 34) pursuing a concealed system of error. Rather, speaking the truth in love [as opposed to deceit], we [as His Body] should grow up into Him in all things, who is the head—Christ: from whom the whole body fitly framed together [all members in their proper position, and in mutual relation] consolidated by that which every point of union supplies, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, makes increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love".
The Prophet said, "Now let us stand like Joshua and Caleb. Our promised land is coming in sight even as theirs did. Now Joshua means "Jehovah Saviour," and he represents the end-time leader that will come to the Church even as Paul came as the original leader. Caleb represents those that stayed true with Joshua. Remember, God had started Israel as a virgin with His Word. But they wanted something different. So did the last day church. Notice how God did not move Israel, or let her go into the Promised Land until it was His own appointed time. Now the people might have put pressure on Joshua, the leader, and said, "The land is ours, let's go and take it. Joshua, you are all through, you must have lost your commission, you don't have the power you used to have. You used to hear from God and know the will of God, and act quickly. Something is wrong with you." But Joshua was a God-sent prophet and he knew the promises of God, so he waited for them. He waited for a clear-cut decision from God and when the time came to move, God placed the full leadership in Joshua's hands because he had stayed with the Word. God could trust Joshua but not the others. So it will repeat in this end day. The same problem, the same pressures" (ibid, p. 172:4).
"The church will have to have the same Spirit, doing the same things that Jesus did; or it'll never go in the rapture" (Hear ye Him, #60-0313). Christ's end-time Bride is a W_O_R_D Bride, those who are not at one with the revelation of the Message will not be "in speaking conditions" to manifest that they are the Sons of God.
Redeem what remains of this ushering-in period leading to the millennium which is the "former (or teaching) rain" of Brother Branham's Message. The "latter (or harvest) rain" will fall when the Sixth Seal manifests. "There will be a great earthquake; the sun will become as black as sackcloth of hair and the moon will be as blood; and the stars of heaven fall to the earth as a fig tree casts her untimely figs when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven will depart as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island will move out of their places . . . For the great day of God's wrath has come; and who will be able to stand?" (Revelation 6:12-14, 17).
All of your decisions will have been made, the world system will collapse. "He who is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he who is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he who is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he who is holy, let him be holy still". nl926.htm
