Bible Believers' Newsletter 962
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
It is our privilege to welcome you to Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ: great to see you.
Once again our contributing author Pastor Chibueze Uzoho presents a third part in our study, "Authority by Separation," demonstrating our authority in Christ, mutual fellowship in communion, grace generally, the 'third pull' and ultimately our body change, is determined by our separation from the love of world and the things that are in the world. "For no servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon".
Please read Part III carefully, and study the Scripture references in the first paragraph seeking a clear understanding of the revelations therein. We must grow beyond the "letter" of Scripture and "what the tapes say," to "the mind of Christ which is the mind of the Lord" (I Corinthians 2:16). Likewise we must "prove all things" when we study current events in order to reach a mature understanding as against prejudicial or emotional parroting of journalistic perspective.
As long-term readers and subscribers know, we focus on "the present Truth" . . . what Jesus is doing now"; consequently we recognize what Satan is doing now.
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.
Anti-Donald Trump: War Propaganda
February 7, 2017 — Two weeks after his investiture, the Altantist Press continues with its work of disinformation and agitation against the new President of the United States of America. Trump and his new collaborators are multiplying declarations and gestures which are apparently contradictory, so that it is difficult to understand what is going on in Washington. The bad faith of the Atlantist Press can be verified for each of these four main themes. [which are primarily a continuation of President Obama's policies] . . .
Donald Trump was the first personality in the world to contest the official version of the attacks of 9/11, on television that very day. After having noted that the engineers who built the Twin Towers were now working for him, he declared on New York’s Channel 9 that it was impossible that Boeings could have burst through the steel structures of the towers. He continued by stating that it was also impossible that Boeings could have caused the towers to collapse. He concluded by affirming that there had to be other factors of which we were as yet unaware.
From that day on, Donald Trump has never ceased to resist the people who had committed those crimes. During his inaugural speech, he emphasised that this was not a passage of power between two administrations, but a restitution of power to United States citizens, who had been deprives of it [for sixteen years] . . .

Is the Trump Administration Already Over?
February 6, 2017 — Hopes for the Trump administration are not burning brightly. Trump's military chief, Gen. Mattis, is turning out to be true to his "mad dog" nickname. He has just declared that Iran "is the single biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the world." He has declared Russia to be the number one threat to the US. He has threatened intervention in China's territorial affairs . . .
There is no evidence in the behavior of Iran, Russia, and China to support Gen. Mattis' views . . . there are only two countries in the world with hegemonic aspirations—Israel and the US—and they are the sources of terrorism. Israel terrorizes Palestinians and has done so for about 70 years. The US terrorizes the rest of the world.
All known Muslim terrorists are creations of the US government. Al Qaeda was created by the Carter administration in order to confront the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan with jihadism. ISIS was created by the Obama/Hillary regime in order to overthrow Gaddafi in Libya and then was sent by the Obama/Hillary regime to overthrow Assad in Syria, as Trump's national security advisor, Gen. Flynn, former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency revealed on TV. The Ukrainian neo-nazis assaulting the republics of Donetsk and Luhansk were also unleashed by the Obama/Hillary overthrow of the democratically elected government of Ukraine. All terror is associated with Washington and Israel.
The fact of Washington's overthrow of Ukraine's government is incontestable . . . The last time Iran initiated a war of aggression was in the last decade of the 18th century . . . Do we see Israel's hand at work in the threats against Iran? Iran and Syria are the only countries in the Middle East that are not American puppet states. Full story: paulcraigroberts.org
Comment: President Trump's politics will hasten the end of the Gentile dispensation, the utter defeat of the modern Israel state, the exodus of so-called Jews, the invasion of mainland USA, world government and Jacob's return to the Land of his Covenant. Contrary to the Donald's presumption his daughter Ivanka will not be a Khazar faux Esther.
"Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the Kingdom . . . know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose" (Luke 12:32; Romans 8:28).
US Power will decline under Trump: Futurist who predicted Soviet Collapse
December 7, 2016 — Johan Galtung, a Nobel Peace Prize-nominated sociologist who predicted the collapse of the Soviet Union, warned that US global power will collapse under the Donald Trump administration . . . in 2000, Galtung first set out his prediction that the "US Empire" would collapse within 25 years. After the election of President Bush, though, he revised that forecast five years forward because, he argued, Bush's policies of extreme militarism would be an accelerant . . .
Galtung has doctoral degrees in sociology and mathematics, and some decades ago developed a theory of "synchronizing and mutually reinforcing contradictions," which he used to make his forecasts . . . In 1980, Galtung used his theoretical model to map the interaction of various social contradictions inside the Soviet empire, leading him to predict its demise within 10 years . . . "it occurred on November 9, 1989, two months before his time limit . . . the main structural contradictions were as follows: the working class was increasingly repressed and unable to self-organise through trade unions (ironic given the country's Communist pretensions [the USSR was funded and directed by Rockefeller, Carnegie, Ford and other tax-free US foundations—watch the banksters and their multinational corporations]); the wealthier 'bourgeoisie' or elite had money to spend, but nothing to buy from domestic production, leading to economic stagnation; Russian intellectuals wanted more freedom of expression; minorities wanted more autonomy; and peasants wanted more freedom of movement.
The model works like this: the more those contradictions deepen, the greater the likelihood they will result in a social crisis that could upend the existing order. Eventually, as the highly centralised structures of the Soviet empire were unable to accommodate these intensifying pressures, the top-down structures would have to collapse.
Galtung later began to apply his model to the United States. In 1996, he wrote a scientific paper published by George Mason University's Institute for Conflict Analysis & Resolution warning that "the USA will soon go the same way as [previous] imperial constructions . . . decline and fall."
But the main book setting out Galtung's fascinating forecast for the US is his 2009 book, The Fall of the American Empire—and then What?
The book sets out a whopping fifteen "synchronizing and mutually reinforcing contradictions" afflicting the US, which he says will lead to US global power ending by 2020—within just four years. [I.e. after the midst of Israel's Seventieth Week precisely as foretold by Daniel and Jesus and expounded by William Branham]. Galtung warned that during this phase of decline, the US was likely to go through a phase of reactionary "fascism".
He argued that American fascism would come from a capacity for tremendous global violence; a vision of American exceptionalism as the "fittest nation"; a belief in a coming final war between good and evil; a cult of the strong state leading the fight of good against evil; and a cult of the "strong leader." [But America will never win another war and will be invaded and briefly occupied in the 'hot stage' of the present World War III].
Galtung warned that during this phase of decline, the US was likely to go through a phase of reactionary "fascism".
All of which, Galtung said, surfaced during the Bush era, and which now appear to have come to fruition through Trump. Such fascism, he told Motherboard, is a symptom of the decline—lashing out in disbelief at the loss of power. [True].
Among the fifteen structural contradictions his model identifies as driving the decline, are:
- economic contradictions such as 'overproduction relative to demand', unemployment and the increasing costs of climate change;
- military contradictions including rising tensions between the US, NATO, and its military allies, along with the increasing economic unsustainability of war;
- political contradictions including the conflicting roles of the US, UN and EU [the Jews' sovereign country City of London rules England as their sovereign nation Washington DC rules the united States];
- cultural contradictions including tensions between US Judeo-Christianity, Islam, and other minorities;
- and social contradictions encompassing the increasing gulf between the so-called 'American Dream,' the belief that everyone can prosper in America through hard work, and the reality of American life (the fact that more and more people can't).
Galtung's book explores how the structural inability to resolve such contradictions will lead to the unravelling of US political power, both globally, and potentially even domestically.
Trump has made clear that he thinks US troops are still needed in Iraq and Afghanistan, and even proposed sending more troops to Iraq. He also said that we should have 'grabbed' the country's oil. But he has also heavily (and incoherently) criticized US military policies.
Domestically, Trump has promised to deport 11 million illegal migrants, build a wall between the US and Mexico, compel all American Muslims to sign up to a government register, and ban all Muslim immigration to the US.
For Galtung, Trump's incoherent policy proposals are evidence of the deeper structural decline of US power: "He [Trump] blunts contradictions with Russia, possibly with China, and seems to do so with North Korea. But sharpens contradictions inside the USA," such as in relation to minority rights.
On the one hand, Galtung said, Trump might well offer an opportunity to avoid potential conflicts with great power rivals like Russia and China—on the other, he may still, stupidly, fight more unilateral wars and worsen domestic contradictions relating to minorities . . .
Even if we give Trump the benefit of the doubt, he said, and assume that he "prefers solving underlying conflicts, particularly with Russia, to war—in other words for the US not be imperial— then yes, that still speeds up the decline from above, and from the center . . . Of course, what he does as a President remains to be seen."
But what exactly is collapsing?
"An empire is more than violence around the world," said Galtung. "It is a cross-border structure with a center, the imperial country, and a periphery, the client countries. The point about imperialism is to make the elites in the periphery do the jobs for the center." [What the Jew's City of London is doing with the USA, UK, and other colonies and occupied countries such as Germany, Japan and Israel, and what the Judaeo-Roman Universal church is doing with the City].
The center country may be a dictatorship or a democracy. So for Galtung, the collapse of the US Empire comes "when the periphery elites no longer want to fight US wars, no longer want to exploit for the center."
For Galtung, a key sign of collapse would be Trump's attitude to NATO. The President-elect has said he would be happy to see NATO break-up if US allies aren't willing to pay their dues. Trump's 'go it alone' approach would, Galtung said, accelerate and undermine US global empire at the same time.
"The collapse has two faces," said Galtung. "Other countries refuse to be 'good allies: and the USA has to do the killing themselves, by bombing from high altitudes, drones steered by computer from an office, Special Forces killing all over the place. Both are happening today, except for Northern Europe, which supports these wars, for now. That will probably not continue beyond 2020, so I stand by that deadline." [So do Daniel 9:27; 11:40 - 12:7, and Jesus Christ in Revelation 11:1-12; 12:14; 13:5, 11-15; 17:11 - 19:21].
But this global collapse also has potential domestic implications. Galtung warned that the decline of American power on the world stage would probably have a domestic impact that would undermine the internal cohesion of the United States:
"As a trans-border structure the collapse I am thinking of is global, not domestic. But it may have domestic repercussion, like white supremacists or even minorities like Hawaiians, Inuits, indigenous Americans, and black Americans doing the same, maybe arguing for the United States as community, confederation rather than a 'union'."
Galtung warned that the decline of American power on the world stage would probably have a domestic impact that would undermine the internal cohesion of the United States . . . [Brother Branham prophesied, "I pray that Brother Martin Luther King will certainly soon wake up . . . see where his inspiration . . . you'll see it . . . maybe after I'm gone . . . Starts a revolutionary, both white and colored will fight again and die like flies" (The Third Exodus, p. 24)].
Might Trump help revitalize the American republic?
Galtung's answer is, perhaps, revealing: "If he manages to apologize deeply to all the groups he has insulted. And turn foreign policy from US interventions—soon, already 250 since Jefferson in Libya 1801—and not use wars (killing more than 20 million in 37 countries after 1945): A major revitalization! Certainly making 'America Great Again'. We'll see." That's a big if. Full story: motherboard.vice.com
Comment: Today's news spoke of a high school that employs a lawyer four days to counsel students and parents on family and criminal matters. A change from pederast priests, promiscuous schoolgirls, drug-dependency, unemployment, family violence, homelessness, financial and economic difficulties, homosexuality, national and international problems and racial friction contracted by the unnatural ungodly wickedness thrust upon us by the enemy of God and man (Genesis 3:15).
The response always demands public funding and bureaucracy. Commonsense, discipline and Jesus Christ are anathema to the simmering multicultural porridge of dysfunctional post-Christian Laodicea given over to demons. Having rejected Jesus Christ we find no the place of national repentance, "and know it not" (Hebrews 12:17; Revelation 3:17). US President Donald Trump is the latest men’s fashion collection of Palomo Spain at New York Fashion Week indicates the world has gone insane. Now here's a challenge for the deacons!
The handwriting is on the wall: "God has numbered the kingdom and finished it. We are weighed in the balances and found deficient. Earth's kingdom has been divided and given to the Judaeo-Roman Universal alliance." We are at the END of the Christian dispensation of grace. The world's most powerful blooded military will soon deploy to force her mark of the beast.
End Climate Propaganda
February 7, 2017 — It’s time to stop wasting taxpayer funds on climate propaganda posing as "research" . . . trying to prove that the trace amount of colourless CO2 gas produced by human activities is producing dangerous global warming . . . Worldwide, taxpayers have financed over 100 computer models needing massive computers with a well-paid priesthood all trying (unsuccessfully) to forecast global climate trends. If they worked, one is enough. Bigger, faster more expensive computers using the same failed Greenhouse assumptions just get the wrong answers faster.
In addition there are the frequent climate conferences where well-financed bureaucrats and government propagandists get re-cycled through the world’s smartest cities seeking powerful roles for themselves in collecting carbon taxes and dispensing climate aid.
This vast expenditure has failed to forecast or change world climate, but has taken funds from the infrastructure needed to cope with inevitable recurring natural disasters such as floods, fires, droughts or earthquakes . . . President Trump is right. All government expenditure on anything with "climate" in its title or mission statement should be scrapped immediately. Full story: carbon-sense.com
Authority by Separation – Part III
By Brother Chibueze Uzoho © 2017 all rights reserved
One does not need to be a prophet to understand that God is a separator. In the beginning of creation He separated Light from Darkness. He ordained that every creature must reproduce after his own kind, and when the Most High divided to the Gentiles their inheritance, determined in Genesis 10 by the hand of Noah under divine inspiration after the deluge, when He separated and dispersed the sons of Adam, Japheth, Ham and Shem (Genesis 10:1, 32). He fixed the bounds of the people so that Israel should possess a land according to its population because the Lord's possession is His people; Jacob is the measure of His inheritance (Deuteronomy 7:6; 10:15; 32:8) situate in the geographical center of the earth whence the Gospel of salvation might be rapidly spread to every part of the globe. So from the very beginning the people and the Land of Israel (not Jewry) were chosen on condition: "If you will obey My voice and keep My Covenant, then you will be My personal possession from among all the nations; for all the earth is Mine" (Exodus 19:5-25). This is confirmed in Malachi 3:13-18 and applies to all whose names are in the Lamb's Book of Life, the Old Testament saints, the 144,000 New Testament Israelites (Jeremiah 31:34; Hebrews 8:10) and Christ's Gentile Bride (Titus 2:14; I Peter 2:9-10).
"When the Day of Pentecost had full come" God covenanted with Israel at Mount Sinai in Saudi Arabia; He declared the Ten Commandments in an audible voice and later instructed Moses in their statutes and judgments. Moses wrote all of these Words into a Book which he read before the people who swore, "All the Words which the Lord has said we will do," and Moses sprinkled the altar and the people with the blood of the Covenant.
Exodus 24:9-18, "Then Moses went up with Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel [under the blood of the Covenant]: they saw the God of Israel; and under His feet there appeared to be a pavement of sapphire, as clear as the sky itself. Yet He did not stretch forth His hand against the nobles of the sons of Israel; and they beheld God, and they ate and drink."
This was a type of the Wedding Supper of the Lamb which Israel has forfeited. When "we who are alive and remain are changed in the atoms and caught up together with the resurrected and glorified Church Age saints into the Pillar of Cloud, to meet the Lord in the air" (I Thessalonians 4:17), the 144,000 elect Israelites, not Jews, will be gathered into the Land of the Covenant by the two witnesses to "Remember the Law of Moses God's servant, which He commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments" (Malachi:4-4). Israel broke their Covenant and rejected the Pentecostal blessing, foreshadowing their rejection of its antitype at the inauguration of Christ's Church. In the type Moses alone was called into the Shekinah at the top of Mount Sinai, Jebel el-Lawz, in Saudi Arabia—a type of the Holy of Holies: Aaron, Nadab, Abihu and the seventy elders waited mid-way up the mountain, a type of the Holy Place, while the Israelites remained in the valley or outer court.
"And the Lord said to Moses, Come up to Me into the mount and I will give you tables of stone, a Law and commandments which I have written; that You may teach them. And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up into the mount of God. And he said to the elders, Tarry here for us, until we come again to you: and, behold, Aaron and Hur are with you: if any man have any matters to do, let him come unto them. And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the mount. And the glory of the Lord abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day He called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud. And to the eyes of the sons of Israel the appearance of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire on the mountain top. And Moses entered the midst of the Cloud as he went up into the mountain; and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights".
During his long absence the children of Israel broke their Covenant and engaged in physical and spiritual fornication which is idolatry (Exodus 19 – 32; Jeremiah 31:31-32). All of the sinners were blotted from the Book of Life. Now the Lord would not dwell with Israel and Moses pitched the tent of meeting without the Camp. "And Moses fell down before the Lord as at the first, forty days and forty nights: he neither ate bread nor drank water, because of all the sins which Israel had sinned in doing wickedly in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger" (Deuteronomy 9:15-21).
God told Moses to hew two tables of stone to replace those he had destroyed and bring them up into Mount Sinai the next morning. After forty days and forty nights he descended with two new tables of Law and more exacting statutes (Exodus 34:11-26) necessitated by the apostasy of Exodus 32. There are 127 days between Sivan 6, the fiftieth Day of Pentecost, and the holy convocation of Tishri 15, the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles or "ingathering and separating [the vintage and fruit] at year's end" when Moses descended Mount Sinai with the second tables of stone. This types the ministry of Israel's two prophets in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week.
7 (days before Moses was called into the Shekinah or Pillar of Fire as Brother Branham was caught up on Mount Sunset) + 40 + 40 + 40 days and nights = 127 days. We may reconcile this with the Hebrew calendar which is lunisolar like our own. The moon takes approximately 29½ days to circle earth thus Hebrew months alternate between 30 and 29 days. Nisan, the first month, has 30 days, the second month 29 days, and so on. The Law was given on Sivan 6 "when the Day of Pentecost had full come" leaving 24 days of the third month + 29 days of the fourth month + 30 days of the fifth month + 29 days of the sixth month + the first 15 days of the seventh month = 127 days from the giving of Law on the first Pentecost to Moses' descent from Mount Sinai with the second table of the Law on Tishri 15, first day of the Feast of Tabernacles.
Exodus 34:21-23, "Three times in the year shall all your male children appear before the Lord God, the God of Israel":
- "You will work for six days but on the seventh day you shall rest: even in ploughing and in harvest [the busiest times of the rural calendar] you shall observe the sabbath day.
- And you will observe the feast of weeks or Pentecost on the seventh week (Sivan 6) after the first day of unleavened bread (Nisan 15). Your offering will be "two wave loaves of fine flour, baked with leaven" (Leviticus 23:17) "the first-fruits of the wheat harvest" [typing we who are alive and remain manifesting that we are the Sons of God separated for authority having our mortal spirit and corruptible flesh under preeminence to the Word], a holy convocation.
- And the feast of Ingathering, Tabernacles or Booths in the seventh month at the year's end commencing with a holy convocation on the first day of the feast (Tishri 15) and concluding with the holy convocation of the eighth day." The first six days of the feast represent six thousand years in which man has laboured against sin. The seventh day will be the millennium of rest, while the eighth day signifies eternity in the renewed heavens and renewed earth.
"When Moses came down from Mount Sinai [on the first day of the feast of Tabernacles] with the tables of testimony in his hand, he was unaware that the skin of his face shone from the Presence of the Lord, and the children of Israel were afraid to approach him." So he wore a veil when he spoke to the people but removed it when he entered the tent of meeting to commune with God (Exodus 34:29–35).
In II Corinthians 3:1-16 Paul compared the temporary, external glory of Moses' face with the revelation of Christ, "the hope of glory . . . living and abiding in our hearts forever" (Colossians 1:27; I Peter 1:23-25) not on tables of stone whose Old Testament shadows and types are still vailed by Israel's carnal mind. Isaiah 25:6–8 foretold how God's elect dwelling in New Jerusalem on Mount Zion will have a table spread where the saints of God are fed throughout eternity with the ever-unfolding revelation of the Logos (Revelation 21:3). Isaiah 33:20 called New Jerusalem "a quiet habitation, a Tabernacle that will not be taken down . . . In this mountain the covering cast over all people, and the vail spread over all Gentiles will be forever destroyed. He will swallow up death forever, wipe away tears from all faces and take away from all the earth the reproach of His people: for the Lord has spoken" (Isaiah 65:18; Revelation 7:13-17; 21:24). And in the millennium there shall be no more tears (Isaiah 61:2b-11; Revelation 7:9-17).
In Luke 9:18–37 Jesus took Peter, James and John—three witnesses representing the 144,000 elect Israelites "into a high mountain separated from the multitude, and was transfigured before them: His face shone like the sun and His clothes became white as light. Moses and Elijah also appeared in glory with Him speaking of His coming decease in Jerusalem as KINSMAN Redeemer for Adam and his fallen race." This was a preview of "the sign of the Son of man in heaven" (Matthew 24:3b, 30; 16:27; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7) Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel in W_O_R_D form through the mouths of two Hebrew prophets anointed with the Spirit that endued Moses and Elijah.
Christ is now no longer a Mediator, He is judge with Life in Himself and authority to execute judgment because He is the Son of Man (John 5:26-27). This was signified to John in Revelation 1:15-16: "His feet like fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and His voice as the sound of many waters. He had in His right hand seven stars: and out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and His countenance was as the sun shining in his strength".
Matthew 24:29-31: "Immediately after the tribulation of the Christian dispensation of grace [the Sixth Seal will manifest (Revelation 6:12-17)]; the sun will be darkened and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken" (Revelation 12:7-12). "And then the sign of the Son of man shall appear in heaven (Matthew 24:3b): and then all the tribes of the earth shall mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He shall send His angels [Israel's 'Moses' and 'Elijah' (Zechariah 4:12; Revelation 11:3-12)]; with a great sound of [the Seventh] Trumpet (Revelation 11:15), and they shall [separate or] gather together His elect from the four winds [of World War III (Isaiah 13:6-16; Joel 2:12; Zechariah 14:1-2; Revelation 16:19) from one end of heaven to the other" (Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 13:14; 27:13; 49:17; Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 16:15; 23:8; 31:8; Ezekiel 37:14; 39:27; Micah 5:3; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31).
In Deuteronomy 18:18-19 God told Moses, "I will raise up a Prophet from among the Israelites like you, and I will put My Words in His mouth; and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. And it will come to pass, that whoever will not listen to My Words which He speaks in My Name, I Myself will require it of Him." This prophecy spoke of Jesus Christ who came down from heaven in Revelation 10:1-4 and 18:1-4 "with a great smiling face" holding the Book of Life open in His hand like Moses who descended the Mount with the second Tables of the Law his face shining from the glory of the Lord.
Brother Branham said, "You remember, the hour is close at hands when the mark will come. You'll either be in it or out of it. And it'll come like a thief in the night. It'll catch you right in there, and you're there. There ain't no getting out of it then; you done took it. Come out. An angel came down from heaven with a great shining face and has cried out to the people that shook the earth, "Come out of Babylon, for she's fallen. Be not partakers of her plagues, My people." Get out of her. Get out. Didn't we just read it in the Word awhile ago? An angel's a messenger (See?) coming down. Notice, the Holy Spirit, "Come out of her that you be not partakers." [Separate] . . . The whole church world is plunged into death, for God said that He would burn the whore and her children with an everlasting fire . . ."
Come out of it, people. Don't you be caught in there. [Separate]. You get away from that thing as quick as you can. By her scientific knowledge, she's been able to do this (Now, notice.) without God's Word. God never did ordain us to go out and have schools. He never. He never told us to build hospitals. They're good. He never told us to build libraries. No, sir. He never. He said, "Preach the Gospel." And the Gospel is manifesting, demonstrating the power of the Holy Spirit. Paul said, "The Gospel come to us not through word only but through the manifestation and demonstrations of the Holy Spirit." Paul said, "I never come to you with great words of wisdom by some doctor of so forth, but I come to you in power and demonstration of the Holy Spirit, that your faith would not be in the wisdom or knowledge of the men of this world, but in the power of the resurrection of Jesus Christ; because He lives, the same yesterday, today, and forever." God help us to believe the same thing, and God vindicate the same thing as He has been doing."
"He keeps you from seeing the true revelation and faith of God's Word being revealed and vindicated today by his schools, libraries, literature, hospitals, and so forth. See? He keeps you from it. He is now interpreting as he did to Pharaoh, trying to keep you from seeing the meaning of the vindicated Word of His promised age in the Evening Lights, vindicated and proved. He's trying by his knowledge, and schools, and better educated people, and ethics, and so forth, to keep you away from seeing that. Anything, so that you won't look at that and see that's Jesus Christ. How do you know it's Jesus Christ? He is the Word, and He's the Word of this age. And this age said that this would take place in this age, and here it is happening. See, see?" (The God of this Evil Age, p. 30:170-173).
Revelation 19:1-16 portrays all who received divine authority by a total separation from unbelief in the revealed Word for their day. The Old Testament saints and the resurrected and translated Bride of all Ages who were bidden in Revelation 12:12 to rejoice at Satan's casting down to earth in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week, and with them in the second half of the Week after the nuclear wasting of Vatican City State and the United States of America, 144,000 elect Israelites (Revelation 18:20). "And after these things . . . (After this tribulation, after the Woes, after the Seals, after the Plagues, after the casting out of Satan, after the setting up of the Millennium. Watch.) . . . I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, "Alleluia! The salvation, and the glory, and the power belongs to the Lord our God (Jeremiah 51:48; Revelation 7:10)! For true and righteous are His judgments: for He has judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and has avenged the blood of His servants at her hand."
"And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rises up forever and ever . . . (That's the old prostitute church.) . . . And the twenty four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluiah. And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Give praise to our God, all you His servants, and you that fear Him, the both small and great."
"And I heard as it was the voice of a great multitude . . . (Listen. Here you are, Church. After She went up in the third chapter, here She comes. See?) . . . (The sixth verse.) . . . And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a mighty thundering, saying, Hallelujah: for the Lord God omnipotent reigns. (Hallelujah. Watch. The marriage [supper] of the Lamb comes now. Here She comes.) Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come [to pass], and His wife has made herself ready. (Here She comes, both Bride and Bridegroom)."
"And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousnesses of saints. And he [the angel William Branham] said unto me [John representing Christ's end-time Bride], Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the wedding supper of the Lamb. And he said unto me. These are the true sayings of God. And I fell down at his feet to worship him [the angel William Branham]. And he said unto me, See you do it not: I am of your fellowservant . . . and of your brethren and have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."
"And I saw heaven opened, and . . . a white horse; . . . (Oh, my.) . . . and He that sat thereon . . . was called Faithful and True, and . . . righteousness does He judge and make war."
"And His eyes was as flames of fire, and . . . his head was many crowns; . . . (He was crowned what? King of kings.) . . . and He had a Name written, that no man knowed, but . . . Himself."
"And He was clothed with white vesture dipped in blood: and His Name is called The Word of God . . . ("In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God; and the Word was made flesh and dwelled among us." Who was it? Jesus.) . . . and His Name is called The Word of God."
"And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. (Glory. Here He comes.) And out of His mouth will go a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treads the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of Almighty God."
"And He had on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF KING, AND LORD OF LORDS."
"What was it? His people had just crowned Him King of king and Lord of Lord, coming back to His holy Temple, anointed with the Presence of God to live and to reign through the millennium with His Church. Amen. The appearing with the mighty King to take Her place at His side, the new royal anointed Temple [His mystic Body, the Bride of All Ages] . . . Now the sixfold purpose of Revelations 6:1 to Revelations 19:21 is fulfilled [i.e. Daniel 9:24-27]. Listen."
"Now in closing, the Seven Seals, Seven Trumpets, Seven Vials, Three Woes, woman in the sun, casting out of the red dragon, comes between these times during the great tribulation period. Don't forget it. All these things take place during this time, but here is the sixfold purpose of Gabriel's coming [to Daniel]. Do you believe it? What a glorious time lays in store for those who love the Lord. I tell you, friends, we can't afford to miss that. Don't miss that for whatever you do. Be sure" (The Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's Visit to Daniel, p. 68:133-136).
Revelation 19 goes on to describe how the Word of God destroys the Jezebel church and her apostate (once) Protestant daughter churches and the consummation prior to the Millennium (Revelation 2:20-23). Malachi 4:1-3 also prophesies the consummation and the dawn of the Millennium. "For, behold, the day comes, that will burn as an oven; and all the proud (like the Americans and so forth), yes, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: . . . (It's going to burn.) . . . and the day that comes shall burn them up, says the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you who reverence My Name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings; and you shall go forth [into the millennium], and grow up as calves of the stall. And you shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be [nuclear] ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, says the Lord of hosts" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 150:6). On this day, the antitypical seventh day of the Feast of Tabernacles "the Son of man shall come in the glory of His Father with His angels [as Moses descended Mount Sinai on the first day of the Feast Tabernacles]; then He shall reward every man according to his works".
The Son of man is coming to execute judgment in the consummation and plant the new creation of God-men for the millennium. All men have made their decisions; kairos time has passed and every man will be paid according to his separation to or from unbelief (Daniel 12:1-3; Revelation 22:11-16). Matthew 16:24-26, "If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever will save his life shall lose it: and whoever will lose his life for My sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?"
Matthew 24:32-34, "Now learn a parable of the fig tree [Israel]; when his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer [June to September in Israel] is nigh: likewise you, when you see all these things, know that the disciples third question (Matthew 24:3c) the end of the present dispensation or order of things is near, even at the doors. Man's day and Christian dispensation of grace will end at the manifestation of the Seventh Trumpet, Sixth Seal and Seventh Vial, and then Christ will turn back to Israel. I assure you, this generation [or strain of Adam's race] shall not pass, till all these things are fulfilled" (Patmos Vision p. 119:244).
This agrees with Matthew 16:28, "Verily I say unto you, There are some standing here who will not taste of death till they see the Son of man coming in His kingdom" (Patmos Vision, p. 117:239-244). And on Mount Transfiguration three witnesses saw a vision previewing Christ's second Coming glorified preceded by Israel's two prophets. Clearly the Israelite race, (there is no Jewish race) cannot expire before He separates and regenerates 12,000 from each tribe.
The natural explanation of our Lord's cursing the fig-tree near Bethany (Mark 11:13) lies in the simple fact that the fruit of the fig tree appears before the leaves; hence if the tree produced leaves it should have borne fruit had it been true to its pretensions in showing its leaves at this particular season. From the nature of the fig tree I anticipate the Lord will take His glorified Bride of all Ages Home early in June. The mendicant state of faux Israel has produced many leaves since 1948; all of them chutzpah! It cannot bear fruit until well after the death, resurrection and translation of their two prophets in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week.
"This is the Word of the Lord . . . not by might, not by power, [not by phosphorous bombs over Palestinian schools, not by the deceitful Six-Day War, not by extorting billions on the basis of holocausts that never took place (three, each said to have killed of six million so-called Jews in just the twentieth century) . . . but by My Spirit, says the Lord of Hosts" (Zechariah 4:6).
These elect Israelites will be a separated people. God is now separating the wise from the Gentile foolish virgins but few in the circle of this Message take the Prophet's vernacular to the Absolute of the written Word to ensure they have the mind of Christ who inspired his words. He said the 'Jews' have returned to Israel, and they have; but few Jews are Semitic, let alone Israelites. Zechariah 4 says the elect Israelites will be separated from exile in the Muslim countries of North Africa and the Middle East by God's Spirit ministered by two Hebrew (not Jewish) prophets.
God sends His Word to bring separation. In reference to Matthew 13 Brother Branham said, "An Angel is coming to bring the separation, the segregation between the right and the wrong. And no one can do that but the Angel of the Lord. He's the One that's going to tell which is right and which is wrong. God said He will send His angels at the last times. Not angels down through here, but angels at the last time, and would gather together. We know that this is the coming harvest time now. Now, and angel is actually interpreted a "messenger." And we see that there is seven angels of the seven churches, and now . . . No, through the Church Ages."
[Seven is the number of Spiritual perfection thus the seventh angel, William Branham, had to be caught up into the Pillar of Cloud with the theophanies of the previous six angels or portions of the sevenfold Spirit to complete the alignment of seven stars or constellation (Pleiades), making the fullness of the Spirit and great smiling face of Jesus Christ the Judge to reveal the fullness of the Word (I Corinthians 13:10)].
"Notice who He said that the sowers were, and also what the seed was. One, the sower was He, the Son of God, Who went forth sowing Seed. And an enemy came behind Him, which was the Devil, and sowed the seed of discrepancy, behind the sowing of the right Seed. Now, friends that has happened through every age since we've had a world. Exactly. All the way from the beginning, it started the very same thing."
"Now, He said, "The Seed of God, the Word of God . . ." Jesus said in a certain place, that the Word is a Seed. And every seed will bring forth of its kind. And now, if the Christian, the children of God, the children of the Kingdom has become the Seed of God, then they must be the Word of God, the Word of God manifested in the Age that they're living in, for the promised Seed of that Age. God gave His Word at the beginning, and each age has had its Seed, its time, its promises" (The Seed of Discrepancy, p. 5:19-21).
The "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 and Revelation 10:7 separated the end-time wise and foolish virgins from Babylon. However, only the wise are baptized into Christ by the "shout." Because the foolish virgins are dilatory and satisfied with a second handed robe of the Spoken Word books their response is intellectual knowledge of the letter only. They fail to meet Christ in personal faith as instructed in Revelation 10:8-11. Although Message believers have separated from mainstream denominations for fifty four years many have not recognized the Holy Convocation of the fiftieth day of the Pentecostal feast and regard themselves as Laodicean saints. As with the first exodus, the third exodus includes a "mixed multitude" but in these closing days of His parousia Christ is making an in-house separation by the still, small "Voice of the Archangel" in the heart of His elect bringing the wise to maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.
Brother Branham said, "What a Message for an occasion to me. Yes indeed. The Pilgrim Fathers were thankful for their newfound way of life, being separated from the old English denominations and creeds. They could marry the new anointed Word for their Age, That's right. The new anointed Word for their Age, for their day. So can we be thankful as pilgrims like Abraham, separate ourselves from the things of the world? All our association. Abraham was a pilgrim. God has separated us from the dead religions (I'm speaking across the creeds, into what separated us and opened to us a new land a new Message for this day" (Invisible Union of the Bride and Christ, p. 4:28).
The fullness of the Word is our Husband or Seed in this day. We must separate from any other husband part or seed of Gospel seasons gone by. The Lutheran, Wesleyan, and Pentecostal (Laodicean) Ages must be dead to us before we can marry our Husband, Christ the fullness of the Word: the Messages of those bygone Ages cannot bring the Life in this Age. As the Bride of Christ let us not refuse His conjugal love; if we reject the revelation of the Message we have rejected the Holy Spirit and refused to be impregnated with His seed for this day.
When a woman has given her marriage vow she is betrothed from that moment and must separate from all other men. She will ultimately leave her family and friends to become united with her lord, transferring the headship of her father to the headship of her husband whose word is henceforth supreme (I Peter 3:1-6; Ephesians 5:22-24; Titus 2:3-5). Some women run an independent race in the matrimonial home: not understanding the natural marriage is a shadow and type of our invisible marriage union with Christ Jesus they cannot have the revelation of new birth. From the moment we gave our unequivocal vow and embraced Him we surrendered all that was dear—family, job, peers and possessions, and separated from everything opposed to His Word, be it religion, culture or worldly pleasures that contend against the faith. We must be true to Him, not flirters with creeds and dogmas, even within the circle of the Message. We must not be double-minded but burn those hindrances that we might display the Token of our marriage without contention, the literal Life of Jesus Christ living through us by revelation of the Seven Thunders, His Presence sanctifying the atmosphere at all times.
A woman's sacred purpose in preserving her virginity for her husband and honouring her vow of separation to the end she might raise godly seed to her lord (Malachi 2:15; John 15:16). How can we bear fruit for our Lord Jesus without separating from our old associates, false Message sects and ideologies? Should we allow the cares of this present world to overshadow the Word? "Today" is the only (Gk.) Kairos or opportunity time we have to shine the Light before earthquakes sink Los Angeles announcing the end of the Gentile dispensation and calling the resurrection of those under Golden Altar. Time is so short we must seriously review the tenets of our belief, searching the Scriptures to ensure we have authority by separation to the mind of Christ.
The Prophet said, "Give me a Church full of the Holy Ghost. God will do in one year [perhaps 2017, now that The Trump card is in play, and] what all theologians failed to do in two thousand years. You wait till the anointing of the Church really strikes home. They got faith, the little remnant. After the doors of the Gentiles is closed. Oh, God will anoint a Church then" (Conduct Order and Doctrine, p. 145:203).
Only a life lived under pre-eminence or totally surrendered and separated unto Him can call Him on the scene for the 'third pull.' "We groan within ourselves, waiting for the redemption of our body." Are you groaning? The time is NOW! nl962.htm
