Bible Believers' Newsletter 995
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; thank you for your company in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
Today's study is a review and continuation of the importance of recognizing parentheses in the Book of Revelation which we began with "You can't Read the Bible like a Newspaper" and "Between the Lines." The following week I addressed a rural denominational church. Families that have been receiving our Church Newsletter for over a year had not proven those things in their own Bibles but rested on the second-hand religion of unscriptural guesswork of godly men who died 500 years ago—as if God folded His arms and dozed like the sleeping virgins rather than revealing further Light on His unchanging Word. So forgive me for interrupting our study to help these people with clear Bible explanations of the original sin, new birth, the true oneness of the godhead and scriptural water baptism in "New Creation in Christ Jesus, and expounding parables in "A Hundredfold Christian".
There is "a worldwide famine of hearing the Word of the Lord. And people will stagger from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east. They will run to and fro to seek the Word of the Lord, and will not find it" (Amos 8:11-12). Their beautiful church has no pastor because ALL denominational and independent churches have been apostate since Jesus Christ opened the Seven Seals and began calling the wise and foolish virgins OUT from the never at any time Christian Judaeo-Roman Catholic church and her apostate once Protestant harlot daughters INTO the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. The 'rapture' has been in PROCESS fifty-four years, as explained with Scriptures. The news items alone confirm that "the silence in heaven the space of about half an hour" cannot extend far beyond the fifty-four years that have already expired.
Last week we published our Submission to "The Senate Select Committee on the Future of Public Interest Journalism," which exposed the corruption of politics and the alien control of the nation by evil men in league to establish one Talmudic totalitarian world government. This was reinforced by the false flag black op in Las Vegas last week orchestrated by the same people behind the Port Arthur Massacre, Westfield and Marriott massacres worldwide, the Lindt Cafe hold-up, Bali bombing, Kennedy assassination, 9/11, 7/7, Boston Marathon, Sandy Hook non-massacre and genocides in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yugoslavia, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Palestine and Yemen. The world is again falling apart: the churches haven't a clue because they are out of communion with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
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.
Mandalay Bay Casino Massacre? Stephen Paddock Innocent Patsy?
October 9, 2017 — I am a retired general surgeon, and when young served in a number of military hospitals in Asia and the Middle East, and I can assure you, few would have had such extensive experience in treating bullet wounds as I. Unless you've actually seen bullet wounds from a clinical perspective from high powered weapons they claim were used in the shooting, it is hard to appreciate the extent that the mainstream media are plainly lying.
So with this knowledge in mind, I have now viewed most of the mainstream media reports on YouTube of the victims in hospital and I can assure you they are ALL ACTORS and not one of these people is a legitimate patient . . . Here is a short YouTube video of what many typical gunshot wounds to the leg of a patient actually looks like: youtube.com. (Published on Sep 6, 2013, Surgery for a gunshot wound to the leg at the University of Maryland's Shock trauma Center) . . .
Here is possibly some of the greatest government/mainstream media/propaganda yet about the Las Vegas shooting, showing President Trump actually visiting a patient in a Las Vegas hospital who apparently was shot through the leg. I can assure you, if he had genuinely been shot through the leg with a high velocity bullet as they claim, he would not, so soon after the event, be able to stand up neither would he have the desire to do so. This is a disgrace, and one finds it impossible to accept President Trump does not know it is all a completely staged event (youtube.com video censored) . . .

Confirmation: Update from UK trauma surgeon, more responses to military surgeon's letter, the mystery deepens, and youtube.com.
Regarding your question: "Why then are what clearly seem to be crisis actors employed?" I'm going to take a wild guess. They are preparing us for war and so they don't want the people to see blood and guts and just how horrendous the injuries are as it might cause people to think about the reality of war. The shocking images would make people fear what war will do to their friends and family and then they will object and oppose the war mongering of the politicians.
They used actors to make being shot seem not so bad—your clothes stay clean and you are soon up and about again—so "Let's have a war, it's nothing to worry about" . . . Full story: American trauma surgeon responds.
The best assessment: October 4, 2017 — "Housekeeping staff for the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Casino were ordered not to come to work the day of the shooting as well . . . no suspicious activity was seen or observed by housekeepers the day before or on the day(s) before the shooting. Paddock's room was cleaned and no weapons or other luggage etc. seen!" Initial shootings were from above and to the right and left from the Route 91 Harvest Site. Only the last shooting came from the Mandalay Bay. This is an Establishment false flag op youtube.com (Scott J. Binsack). Beware of profanities. This video proves intent to deceive by filming the 4th and 32nd floors of the Mandalay Bay Casino Hotel. No initial or secondary rounds came from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Casino; the window was shattered from without in the final stage of the shootings.
Most of the people who died at close range. October 7, 2017 — youtube.com (Scott J. Binsack claims the deceased man on the floor of the hotel room was not Stephen Paddock who was drunk on the day of the shooting).
The official narrative is not disclosing:
1) The Mandalay Hotel has special weapons detectors installed and would never have allowed weapons in unless they were cooperating with either a real federal law enforcement team or a fake law enforcement team (e.g. a Mossad team with impeccable credentials).
2) A Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) exercise or drill was taking place across the entire city at the time, with many "crisis actors" hired and integrated into the crowd watching the Route 91 music festival.
3) There was no Emergency Response Team (EMT) of note over the course of many hours—neither for the drill nor for the real dead and wounded. Many more may have died for lack of a proper response caused by confusion and compounded by treason in high places.
In the several days since the horrific events occurred, a number of sources have come forward and we now speculate that the following may be true:
1) Steven Paddock was a patsy, gambling until fifteen minutes before the shooting. He had neither the time, strength, training, nor capacity to shoot any number of weapons into a group over 1,000 meters away, nor were the casings for 2,000 or so rounds fired, present in the room. While he may have thought he was part of a federal sting operation against Islamic State of Syria and Iraq (ISIS), he is not the perpetrator.
2) There were clearly multiple shooters, including at least one with an M-60 belt-fed machine gun, and at least one shooter appears to have used hollow-nosed bullets that fragment and cause massive damage to those they hit.
3) A great deal of the early "evidence" was a mix of material coming out from the pre-planned drill and the crisis actors playing out their roles and therefore discernably false; and isolated truthful material sharply in conflict with the government narrative and quickly deleted by #Google Gestapo.
There are five potential perpetrators of this mass atrocity, in order of probability (in my view) . . . Full story: ahtribune.com
Let's first remember that the phrase "conspiracy theory" is a term manufactured by the CIA in the 1960s to stanch the flow of bloody question-asking from pesky US citizens dissatisfied with official government and media explanations for horrific events. Secondly, as Conspiracy Theory In America author Lance Dehaven-Smith explains, state crimes against democracy (SCADS) are best seen as connected "Deep State" manoeuverings, rather than as isolated incidents.

The Telltale Signs the Western Oligarchs are Doomed
October 11, 2017 — Isn't it abundantly clear by now, Vladimir Putin and Russia hold the winning cards? . . . America has no positive future without the kinship and partnership of Russia. If the globalist elite who've admittedly set themselves up as the new world order (leaders from Obama to Trump admit same) remain on the present geo-policy course, then war or certain economic collapse will ensue. Many of the world's leaders already know this and are making moves to side with Russia should the inevitable happen suddenly.
As it stands now, with the mediocre losers in the west pounding out the same idiotic tune in media, Vladimir Putin is on the cusp of creating a grand coalition of his own, one that could end US dominance on the world stage forever. Putin's recent meetings with Turkey's Erdogan, with the Saudi King, and with Iran's leadership show a polar shift in global influence . . . the inevitable emergence of Russia as a leader on the global stage is happening no matter what. While Trump stomps about threatening at the UN, Putin does not even waste the time attending. Instead, Russia's leader leverages wins in Syria and elsewhere, along with the trend away from dollar dominance, to forge new friendships and possibilities. The "loser" mentality American and European dinosaurs have adopted leaves them looking like fools who simply scramble to keep up, or to keep afloat at all. And the "loser" narrative in their media is the clearest indicator. Look at what Washington is trying to do to Russia's RT in America. It's pitiful to see a tiny by comparison media effort, so feared by the trillion dollar ad network the western oligarchs created. Now they have Google, Twitter, Facebook, the US Senate, cyberwarfare companies, technocrats, universities . . . all attempting to mitigate the tiny voices of dissent. It's pitiful.

Why the US Fed is Powerless to Save the US Economy
By Jim Rickards
October 4, 2017 — The United States is living through a new depression that began in 2007. It's part of a larger global depression; the first since the 1930s. And this New Depression will continue indefinitely unless policy changes are made in the years ahead . . . it's entirely possible to have growth in a depression. The problem is that the growth is below trend . . . weak growth that does not do the job of providing enough jobs or staying ahead of the national debt. That is exactly what the US is experiencing today.
The long-term growth trend for US GDP is about 3%. Higher growth is possible for short periods of time . . . The past seven years of roughly 2% growth — when the historical growth rate is 3%—is a depression, exactly as Keynes defined it . . . unemployment can fall and stocks can go up during a depression. The Great Depression lasted from 1929 to 1940. It consisted two technical recessions from 1929–1932 and again from 1937–1938. The periods 1933–1936 and 1939–1940 were technically economic expansions. Unemployment fell and stock prices rose. But the depression continued because the US did not return to its potential growth rate until 1941. Stock and real estate prices did not fully recover their 1929 highs until 1954, a quarter century after the depression started.
Recessions are cyclical and monetary in nature. Depressions are persistent and structural in nature. Structural problems cannot be solved with cyclical solutions. This is why the Fed has not ended the depression. The Fed has no power to make structural changes. Power to make structural changes lies with the Congress and the White House . . . until the structural changes I described are enacted by law, this new depression will continue. And the Fed is powerless to change that. Full story: dailyreckoning.com.au
Is Trump the Back Door Man for Henry A. Kissinger & Co?
September 1, 2017 — With Kissinger now in a unique relationship with President-elect Trump as shadow foreign policy adviser, with Kissinger allies Tillerson as Secretary of State and Mattis as Secretary of Defense, it is beginning to appear that the heavy hand of Kissinger and his version of British Balance of Power political manipulations is about to target China, as well as Iran, and to try to use Putin and Russia to destroy the genuine possibility of a counterweight to Western One World delusions, by fostering mistrust and bad blood between China and Russia and Iran.
There is simply too much coincidence in the recent emergence of the Kissinger–world statesman of peace–to not think that in truth, from the outset, Donald Trump was designed to be Henry A. Kissinger's Back Door Man, in order to re-tilt global geopolitics back to a US leading role as Domina über Alles . . . Full story: journal-neo.org
Middle East and Asia Geopolitics: Shift in Military Alliances?
September 30, 2017 — A profound shift in geopolitical alliances is occurring which tends to undermine US hegemony in the broader Middle East Central Asian region as well as in South Asia. Several of America's staunchest allies have "changed sides." Both NATO and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) are in crisis . . . NATO is characterized by profound divisions, largely resulting from Ankara's confrontation with Washington. Turkey—which constitutes NATO's heavyweight—is now fighting US-supported Kurdish rebels in northern Syria—i.e. the US which is member of NATO is supporting and financing Kurdish rebels who are fighting a NATO member state.
While Turkey formally remains a member of NATO—which has an integrated and coordinated air defense system—the Erdogan government has purchased Russia's S400 air defense system which is slated to be used against America's Kurdish proxies in Northern Syria. A NATO member state is now using the air defense system of an enemy of US-NATO against US-NATO supported rebels. In turn, Turkey has dispatched troops to Northern Syria with a view to eventually annexing part of Syria's territory. In turn, Moscow and Ankara have established an alliance of convenience.
While actively cooperating with Iran, Qatar has a military cooperation agreement with the US, which in practice is directed against Iran. US Central Command based in Qatar is responsible for military operations against enemies of US-NATO including Iran, which happens to be Qatar's main partner in the oil and gas industry. Meanwhile, Turkey has established a military base in Qatar.
Russia's geopolitical control over gas pipelines going to Europe has been reinforced as a result of the Saudi blockade . . . the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) which constitutes America's staunchest ally in the Middle East is no longer functional. Qatar has not only aligned itself with Iran, it is actively cooperating with Russia. In turn, America's bilateral military cooperation agreements with both Pakistan and India are also affected following the accession of both countries to the SCO, which constitutes a de facto military alliance dominated by China and Russia.

Israel's Role in the Cataclysm to Come
October 7, 2017 — Finally, the skeleton is out of the Arab Spring closet via an article in Foreign Policy written by Jonathan Spyer. Israel has been at war for total dominance in the Middle East and, according to the senior research fellow at the Global Research in International Affairs Center (Rubin Center) and Jerusalem Post columnist, Tel Aviv is about to engage in Syria to confront Iran.
All I can say is, if the director of one of Israel's research centers located at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) is right, then the kickoff to Armageddon could be around the corner. For some months now my research and reporting on Syria and the wider crises has revolved around Israel's role in world affairs. So, with this revelation it seems clear that the gloves will soon come off where Israel as the instigator of crises is concerned. Bibi and Trump meeting in Washington, the role of AIPAC in pressing for sanctions on Russia, Iran and North Korea, and the provocative geostrategic role the Netanyahu government has played equal overwhelming circumstantial proof of the tiny nation's responsibility for Middle Eastern chaos . . .
The answer to the question is not a positive one, for in the west the game is pretty much rigged. Citizens are either distracted by local crises, or they are uneducated and apathetic toward global geopolitics. In short, we're ill prepared to do anything at all. This is one reason why we see globalist magazines like Foreign Policy, and even leading politicians, unafraid to simply lay out the plans. These revelations we are seeing are a consequence of our own indifference, and the solutions to Israeli or US encroachments are not easy for people to accept. Where Tel Aviv is concerned, the only mediation that will get its attention is force. In my opinion, until the international community (or Russia perhaps) slaps Israel down (and hard) these crises will only escalate. Israel had the key role in Arab Spring, and in the regime change targeting Assad and Syria. As a result, millions of people are now displaced or worse. It's high time that these Zionist autocrats face the music. The alternative will be a cataclysm. Full story: journal-neo.org
Comment: The God of Israel who will one day destroy the g_d of the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews (Revelation 20:10) is in agreement with Dr. Jonathan Spyer. According to Bible of the God of Israel, the modern faux Israel state will shortly be utterly defeated and forever finished as a military power, resulting in a mass exodus of Israeli self-styled Jews to enable the descendents of Jacob to return to the Land of the Covenant for redemption.
The Big ISIS and SDF Lies of the US—'Kurdistan' and New Gas Wars
October 4, 2017 — A Kurdish Syrian Defense Force (SDF) that is backed not by the Assad government of Damascus, but by the Pentagon and by the Israeli IDF and others hostile to the Baghdad government of Bashar al Assad, has just claimed control of major Syrian gas fields originally developed by the Houston, Texas Conoco Oil Company. The standard western media portrayal of the operation is along the lines of "US-backed Syrian forces have seized a Conoco gas plant from Islamic State in the oil-rich Deir Ez-Zor area, depriving the militants from an important revenue source."
Behind that portrayal is the ugly truth that US Pentagon forces have been exposed as the guiding hand for both the ISIS terror group and for the SDF. ISIS had occupied Dier Ez Zor province and its oil and gas fields since 2014, robbing the Assad government of one of its main sources of income and of energy.
On September 24, the Russian Ministry of Defense released aerial images showing US Army Special Forces equipment where ISIS militants are deployed north of the city of Deir ez-Zor. The pictures show US Army units providing free passage for the predominantly Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), allowing them to pass through the battle formations of Islamic State terrorists, the Russian ministry said in a statement.
"Without resistance from ISIS militants, the SDF troops are moving along the left bank of the Euphrates river towards the town of Deir ez-Zor," the statement reads.
The Moscow Defense Ministry statement goes further: "Despite the strongholds of the US armed forces being located where ISIS troops are currently deployed, there are not even signs of the organization of a battle outpost."
Obviously, the US military personnel in the middle of ISIS controlled territory feel absolutely safe in the area. As Thierry Meyssan, Damascus-based French Middle East expert notes: "In August, the Pentagon published a call for tender for the buying and transfer of 500 million weapons and ammunition, mainly ex-Soviet. The 200 first trucks were delivered to the YPG at Hasakah, on 11and 19 September, via Iraqi Kurdistan, without being attacked by the jihadists (ISIS-w.e.)."
This confirms that both the US-trained and armed Kurdish SDF forces and ISIS are US proxies used now interchangeably to secure strategic oil and gas regions of Syria near the border with Iraq, where the Iraqi Kurds under the feudal despot, the US and Israel-backed Massoud Barzani, just voted overwhelmingly, by a reported 92% margin, to declare an "independent" Iraqi Kurdistan, a move openly supported by Israel's Netanyahu and behind-the-scene by Washington. Already in 2015 according to a report in the London Financial Times, Israel was importing as much as 77 percent of its oil supply from Barzani-controlled Iraqi "Kurdistan."
Now the long-term Pentagon plan, first outlined in a 2006 US Armed Forces Journal piece, for a US-and-Israel-backed independent Kurdistan state carved out of territory of Iraq, Syria and even NATO-member Turkey and ultimately, Iran as well, is emerging into the sunlight. Until now it has largely been hidden in the darkness of more than six years of a US-sponsored and mainly Saudi-financed war to depose the legitimate elected government of Bashar al Assad, a prime obstacle to the planned balkanization of the region.
War against Terror or War with help of Terror?
The Pentagon lie that Washington has been fighting a war in Syria to destroy ISIS terrorists—a US aggression, by the way, illegal under international law as it is hostile invasion of a sovereign country against the UN Charter—is now fully exposed as just that, a lie. The Pentagon and CIA and its various killer-for-hire private mercenaries, as has been charged many times, created ISIS out of its Al Qaeda in Iraq and Syria in an attempt to topple Assad and take control of strategic oil and gas reserves and pipeline routes. At stake is the energy future of not only Syria but potentially of the European Union and of Asia . . .
But because of the recent success of the Syrian Arab Army and allied forces backed by Russian air power, the battle is turning into a direct US-Russia showdown, something in no way conducive to world peace. As repeatedly in their history, the Kurds of Syria and of Iraq are being played by the larger powers in the west for their own game: to totally control the vast energy resources of the entire Middle East and with it, of much of the world. Ultimately the game will fail, though not before senseless and inhuman slaughter continues to take its toll . . . Full story: journal-neo.org
As it was in the Days of Lot
October 12, 2017 — It's not been a good day for the Australian Defence Force. First up, it has been revealed that basically everything known about our newest Navy ships and Air Force jets has been handed over to a hacker.
And now it's been revealed that basically the entire senior leadership of the military doesn't care anyway because they are knee deep in briefing notes about transgender soldiers and sex change operations . . . It costs a lot more than $1,052,330 just to get that. This figure does not include daily pharmaceutical requirements so that transgender soldiers who have left their 'biologically assigned' gender can 'live truthfully.' The truth is that the body does not recognise the fiction of sex change operations, hence the reason hormones must be provided in a taxpayer-funded bottle.
This figure does not include the cost of 'transition' leave. The documents released under FOI show that this can sometimes take up to two and a half years and then require ongoing support and counselling. US analysis shows that the average transgender soldier is unable to deploy for 238 days after surgery (if they deploy at all).
This figure does not include the likelihood that Defence has lost about 11 years of effective military service since it started dabbling in sex change surgery. And, most of all, this figure does not include the cost of having the entire military hierarchy give up their day jobs and waste time, effort and resources developing policies that are not policies for just 27 people.
The truth is that the actual cost of 27 transgender Defence members has run well past just a cool million. But who cares when it's someone else's money? And who's counting when you can simply chant over and over again that diversity increases capability . . . Full story: bernardgaynor.com.au, and Radio 2GB Interview.
Comment: This is a Scriptural SIGN to wake up the sleeping virgins to Luke 17:28-30, the antitype of Genesis 18. The three Messengers have been: the Son of man HAS come and is present precisely as Jesus promised. If you cannot see this Scriptural promise and the mountain of indisputable vindicating evidence you are not a Christian. This is the spirit of Laodicea, "people's rights".
Parentheses in Revelation 7 to 11
Expounding the First Seal under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit Brother Branham said, "Here's the plan of it: The first thing happens, there is an announcement in the heavens first. [For instance Revelation 6:1, "I saw when the Lamb opened one of the Seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of Thunder, one of the four living creatures saying, Come"]. What happened? A Seal is opened. What is that? A mystery is unfolded. See? And when a mystery unfolds, then a [Gospel] Trumpet sounds [for whomever in Adam's race will receive its Message]. It declares a [Spiritual] war. Or a plague falls, and a Church Age opened. See? What is the war part? The angel of the Church catches the mystery of God, not fully yet revealed, but when he does, he catches this mystery of God, and then he goes forth to the people (after the mystery has been given to him), goes forth to the people. What does he do out there? He begins to proclaim that Message, and what does it start? A war, a Spiritual war."
[It should be remembered that Israel's Seven Trumpets manifest synchronously with the Seven Seals, calling natural warfare upon Israelites and their non-Semitic, anti-Semitic impostors the self-styled Jews, who reject the "Gospel of the Kingdom preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations" (Matthew 24:14; 28:19-20). In Genesis 41 "Pharaoh placed his seal or signet ring on Joseph's hand, as God placed His Seal of the baptism with the Holy Ghost and Eternal Life in the Man Jesus Christ. Pharaoh had Joseph ride in his second chariot, and men ran before him crying, Bow the knee, Joseph is coming. And Pharaoh told Joseph, I remain Pharaoh, but without your consent no man may lift up hand or foot in all the land of Egypt" (Genesis 41:41-44; John 14:6).
Joseph was a perfect type of Christ: his forerunners type the angels to the Church Ages—Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Martin Luther, John Wesley, and William Branham—who foreran Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming crying, "Bow the knee, Jesus is Coming." Those who recognized their day and its Message bowed the knee and were baptized into their position in Christ. Once all saints predestinated to the PART-Word Body of the Church Ages were born-again Christ's mediation was fulfilled, redemption was over, and Brother Branham stood in the breach between the Church Ages and the Seals to introduce Christ's second Coming in W_O_R_D form by the revelation of the Seven Seals which is the fullness of the Word. This revelation is baptizing Christ's end-time Bride into the Capstone of the Body (I Corinthians 13:10). Israel and their impersonators either did not hear or rejected the Message for their hour and received the plague of the Trumpet Judgment for their day (Romans 11:25)].
"And then God takes His messenger with the elect of that Age, and lays them away asleep, and then He drops a plague upon them who rejected it: a temporary judgment [or Vial is poured out upon the non-elect to separate the false church of un-believers and make-believers from the foolish virgins]. And then, after that is over, then he goes on, and they denominate, and bring in denominations, and start off with that man's work like of Wesley and all the rest of them, and then it gets all in a scrapple again; and then another mystery comes forth. Then what happens? Another messenger arrives on earth for a Church Age. See?"
"Then when he arrives, the [Gospel] Trumpet sounds. He declares war. See? And then what happens? Finally then he's caught away. And then when he's laid away, then plague falls, destroys them. Spiritual death hits the church and she's gone, that group. Then He goes on to another one."
Oh, it's a great plan until it comes to that last angel. Now, he has no certain mystery, but he gathers up all that's been lost in them other ages, all the truths that wasn't truly revealed yet (See?), as the revelation come. Then he reveals those things in his day. If you want to read it, there it is: Revelations 10:1 to about 4. You'll get it. All right. See?"
"Jesus takes the Book of Seals and breaks them and shows the seventh angel, for this alone, the mysteries of God, is the ministry of the seventh angel. Now, we just come through the Church Ages with even history and prove that. See? It is the angel's Message of the Seventh Church."
"All right, reveals all the mysteries that's been in the past, all the things in the past: Revelations 10:1-7. That's to be."
"Now, remember, in the days of the seventh angel, his sounding forth, blasting forth the Gospel Trumpet, he is to finish all the mysteries of God. Just like here come forth in the early Church Ages (we'll get it after while), a doctrine, then it become a saying first, then a doctrine, and then become a statute [Revelation 2:6; 15], then become a [Judaeo-Roman Catholic false] church, and through the dark ages, and out of the dark ages come the first Reformation—Luther. And he brought with him all kinds of mysterious things that happened during that Church Age, all back in there, then . . . But he never finished it up."
"Then along come Wesley with sanctification, got some more of it, but still never finished it, left loose ends everywhere, such as sprinkling instead of baptism, and Luther took "Father, Son, Holy Ghost" instead of the "Lord Jesus Christ," all these different things."
"Then along come the Pentecostal Age with the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and they cabbaged down on that. Now, there cannot be no more Ages. That's all of it; that's the Philadelphia, or the Laodicea Age. But then the . . . We found in the studying of the Scripture that the messenger to the age come right at the end of the age every time. Paul come at the end of the age. We find out that Irenaeus come at the end of the age. Martin, end of the age. Luther, the end of the Catholic age; and what? Wesley, at the end of the Lutheran age; and Pentecost, at the end of the age of sanctification through the baptism of the Holy Ghost."
"And at the end of the Pentecostal age we are supposed to receive, according to the Word, as God help me tonight to show you through here, that we are to receive a messenger that will take all those loose ends out there and reveal the whole secret of God for the rapturing of the Church.
"And then there's coming forth seven mysterious thunders that's not even written at all. That's right. And I believe that through those seven thunders will be revealed in the last days in order to get the Bride together for rapturing faith; because what we got right now, we wouldn't be able to do it. There's something we've got to step farther; we can't have enough faith for Divine healing hardly. We've got to have enough faith to be changed in a moment and be swept up out of this earth, and we'll find that after a while, the Lord willing, find where it's written."
"Then all the judgments of these evil doers . . . Now, see, down through the ages as these Seals has been breaking, until now the last Seal is broken. And now, as they have been watching in on these Seals and just presuming what they were doing, now at the end of the ages, of the Church Ages, all these evil doers will take place and head up in the tribulation."
"All of these evil doers of the Seven Seals has been working mysterious in the church, and we'll find out in a minute, they even work in the name of a church. They call themselves the church. You just see if that isn't right. No wonder I have been so against denomination, not knowing why. See, see?"
"Now, it starts back here in a mild form, just keeps getting worse and worse, on down until . . . And people go right into it, saying, "Oh, yes, this is just fine." But in the last days these things are made known. And they finally go so bad until they go plumb into the tribulation period" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 126:4 – 128:5).
In addition to the order of Seals, Gospel and judgment Trumpets, Church Ages, Vials and Woes, the Book of Revelation is replete with parentheses and impossible to understand unless we recognize them. A parenthesis is a word, phrase or verse usually marked off by brackets, dashes, commas, or even chapters, and inserted as an explanation or afterthought into a passage that is grammatically complete without it, but which provides additional understanding of matters past, present or future.
Revelation 7 is a parenthesis between the Sixth Seal (Revelation 9:12-17) and the Seventh Seal (Revelation 8:1). It reveals what the Lord is doing under the Fourth, Fifth and Seventh Seals, in the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Trumpets, the First and Second Woes, and the Fifth and Sixth Vials before the Seventh Trumpet, Sixth Seal and Seventh Vial manifest at the close of the Christian dispensation, ending grace for Gentiles and non-elect Israelites and calling the first resurrection. It contains two visions.
In the first vision John, who throughout the Book of Revelation represents you and I, Christ's end-time Bride, looks back to World War I in the early years of the Laodicean Church Age (1906 – 1963) when the mystery of the baptism with the Holy Ghost was restored without sensation by revelation of the Word for the hour and the Person of Christ performing in you the same works He did. If we turn to Revelation 8:12-13 we see Israel's Fourth Trumpet also manifest in Laodicea, and darkness fell upon the third part of the great lights of heaven, that give light to the world, the sun, and the moon, and the stars, announcing appointed times of cyclical assemblies for worship, typing rabbis and leaders elevated above Israelites to dispense Spiritual Light and kind influences, darkened through unbelief and Talmudic perversions "that make the commandments of God of none effect: in vain they worship the Archangel ascending from the east, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men" (Matthew 15:1-9). Even as General Edmund Allenby reconquered Jerusalem, seen here reviewing an honour guard of British troops at the Jaffa Gate, "the third part of men" were blind to God's hand. Christ the Archangel with authority to restrain the four winds mysteriously ended World War I but afterward loosed them for World War II "to slay the third part of men," forcing 'Jews' and recalcitrant Israelites to the Land of the Covenant (Revelation 9:15). "The foundation of God stands sure, having this Seal: The Lord knows them that are His, and, Let everyone that names the Name of Christ depart from iniquity" (II Timothy 2:19). Under first Woe of World War I Christians sealed with the Spirit were protected from harm (Revelation 9:4-5).
In verse 3 Christ commands Satan, the rider of the four horses of the apocalypse not to hurt the earth and the sea under the Seventh Trumpet and Sixth Seal (Revelation 11:18; 12:12)] or any tree (nation or people) in the Third Woe of Armageddon until He has sealed the 144,000 elect Israelites with the baptism of the Holy Spirit, or new birth. The Third Woe will see the nuclear annihilation of the USA after further treachery by the image unto the beast.
The second vision in the parenthesis of Revelation 7 concerns Christ's glorified Bride of all Ages who overcame through two thousand years of the great tribulation against the Christian Church from the Roman investiture of Jerusalem in AD70 (Matthew 24:21) to the translation of Christ's end-time Bride. This brings us to the unwritten Seventh Seal of Revelation 8:1 which is William Branham's Message and the revelation of the previous six written Seals.
Revelation 8:1-5, "When Christ had opened the Seventh Seal [circa March 8, 1963], there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour." Or as Brother Branham said, "Now, "He that overcomes shall set with Me on My Throne [on earth in the millennium], as I overcame and sat down on My Father's Throne [in heaven]." Other words, "I took within My body the Holy Spirit. I overcome all the things of the world (through the temptation) by the Holy Spirit, and took over!" ("And in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily.") "All powers in Heavens and earth is given unto My hands," He said. All the power! Then God is powerless if He's another person. For the Bible said, Jesus said, after His resurrection, that "All the power in Heaven and earth, both, was given into My hand." There is no trinity of gods.
"And Jesus comes from Heaven with ten thousands times ten thousands of His Saints," [I Thessalonians 4:13-14; Jude 14] and the Bible says that "the Heavens was empty for the space of a half hour." Where is this big fellow, God, then? Uh-huh. See? He's in Christ. Sure" (The Sardisean Church Age, p. 348:95-96)!
In Revelation 8:2 we see "the seven angels which stand before God; and seven trumpets were given to them." Speaking of the seven earthly angels to the Church Ages Brother Branham said concerning himself, "Now this person, who in Revelation 10:7 is called an 'angel' in the King James Version is NOT an heavenly being. The sixth Trumpeting angel, who is an heavenly being, is in Revelation 9:13, and the seventh of like order is in Revelation 11:15. This one here in Revelation 10:7 is the seventh age messenger and it is a man, and he is to bring a Message from God, and his Message and ministry is going to finish the mystery of God as declared to His servants the prophets. God is going to treat this last messenger as a prophet BECAUSE HE IS A PROPHET. That is what Paul was in the first age, and the last age has one, too" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 323:3).
Revelation 8:3-5 is a parenthesis explaining what will take place under the Sixth Seal (Revelation 9:12-17). "And another angel came and stood before the altar [of incense], having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should add it to the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the [brazen] altar, and cast upon the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake".
As Paul was "the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost" (Romans 15:16), Brother Branham was the angel whose ministry restored the apostolic faith of Paul who wrote the New Testament, and "finished the mystery of God" (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7). He was the angel to whom "Jesus Christ sent and signified the things which must shortly come to pass" (Revelation 1:1). Thus it was Brother Branham to whom Christ "gave much incense" the revelation of the Seven Seals for the Capstone ministry "that he should add it to the prayers [or revelation] of all the saints" thereby rendering them efficacious as a sweet-smelling savour to God being THUS SAITH THE LORD (I Corinthians 13:10).
Shortly before "the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord" or Shekinah abandoned God's Temple at Jerusalem, the Marking Angel, Christ the Holy Spirit was told "fill your hands with coals of fire from between the cherubim and scatter them over the city [of Jerusalem]" (Ezekiel 10:2). God's fiery judgments were about to descend on the foes of God and His Church under General Titus' siege of Jerusalem. After the opening of the Sixth Seal Brother Branham will "take the censer and fill it with fire from the altar of sacrifice and cast it upon the earth: and there will be voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake." This earthquake will sink Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300 – 400 mile segment of earth's crust at the close of our dispensation (Revelation 11:19) and the pouring out of the Seventh Vial "And there will be voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great" (Revelation 16:18; 18:21-24; Luke 21:25).
Malachi 4:5-6 prophesies the outpouring of the coals of God's wrath upon the earth. "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the Coming of the great and dreadful Day of the Lord: and he [John the Baptist] will turn the heart of the [apostolic] fathers to the children [born of the Holy Spirit from the Day of Pentecost], and [Brother Branham's ministry will restore] the heart of the children to [the faith of] their [apostolic] fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse," sinking Los Angeles, igniting the Pacific Ring of Fire, sweeping the oceans with tidal waves, darkening the sun and turning the moon to blood with volcanic actions as earth slips on its axis.
Isaiah 61:1-2 prophesied God's commission to Jesus Christ and Brother Branham, separated by a comma and two thousand years. Thus when the minister passed the Book of Isaiah to Jesus Christ in Luke 4:16-21 He read, "The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me; because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the meek; He has sent Me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [jubilee]. And He closed the Book, and He gave it again to the minister, and sat down . . . And he began to say unto them, This day this scripture is fulfilled in your ears." For it pertained to His first Coming.
Had Jesus completed the verse He would have added, "and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn" but this speaks of His second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel. It was Brother Branham who "proclaimed the day of vengeance of our God" and introduced Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming which 144,000 elect Israelites will recognize in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week and mourn their Day of Atonement realizing their own forefathers slaughtered Messiah. Christ will "comfort all that mourn" as Joseph consoled his treacherous brothers in Genesis 45:5-7, "Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that you sold me hither: for God send me before you to preserve life . . . And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance." Thus Israel's new birth is explained in Zechariah 12:10 – 13:7.
Revelation 10:1 – 11:13 is a parenthesis between the Sixth Trumpet of Revelation 9:13-21 and the Seventh Trumpet of Revelation 11:13. We live under manifestation of the Sixth Trumpet, the Fourth Seal of our spiritual redemption or new birth, the Fifth Seal of grace to Israelites martyred in faithful observance of the Law, and the Seventh Seal of our physical redemption and full adoption. The opening of the Seventh Seal is described in Revelation 5:1 – 6:17 and Revelation 8:1. Revelation 10:1-7 explains what takes place thereafter:
After Christ had performed the duty of our kinsman Redeemer by claiming the Book of Redemption and opening its Seven Seals "I saw another mighty Angel . . . the Lord Himself descend from heaven with a shout . . . [I Thessalonians 4:16 in 1963! Brother Branham explained, "Three things happen. A shout, a voice, a trumpet, has to happen before Jesus appears . . . Jesus does all three of them when He's descending. A shout, what is the shout? It's the Message going forth, first, the living Bread of Life bringing forth the Bride] . . . clothed with a [pillar of] cloud [the token of the divine Presence (Exodus 13:21; Ezekiel 1:4; Matthew 17:5; Acts 1:9; Revelation 1:7)]: and the [horizontal] rainbow [of Revelation 4:3, the token of covenant and of love, glowed round] his head [as it glowed around Brother Branham's head]; His face as the sun [Matthew 17:2; Revelation 1:16; 18:1], and His feet as pillars of fire [that led Israel through the wilderness at night (Exodus 13:21-22; Ezekiel 1:7; Revelation 1:15)]; and having in His left hand a little Book open: and He set His right foot upon the sea, and His left upon the earth, and cried with a loud voice, as a lion roars: and when He cried, Seven Thunders uttered their voices. And when the Seven Thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write when I heard a voice from heaven telling me, Seal up those things which the Seven Thunders uttered, and write them not!"
Revelation 10:5-7, "And the Angel which I saw stand 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 [as the sole Person of God manifest in flesh Jesus swore by Himself (Genesis 22:16; John 1:1; Colossians 1:15-18; I Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 6:13)], that there should be [chronos] time no longer [at the conclusion of the silence in heaven the space of about half an hour]: but in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel [William Branham], when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets".
Although the seventh angel went to his reward in 1965 we live in the days in which the Voice of the seventh angel is speaking louder and with greater clarity than ever it did during his time on earth.
Revelation 10:8-11, "And the voice which John, [representing Christ's end-time Bride] heard from heaven [bidding him "Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not"] spoke to him again, and said, Go and take the little Book which is open in the hand of the Angel, [Christ], Who stands [in judgment] upon the sea and upon the earth. And I went to the Angel, and said to Him, Give me the little Book. And He said to me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make your belly bitter, but it shall be in your mouth sweet as honey".
When we compare this passage to Genesis 3 where the Devil-incarnate Serpent beguiled Eve who ate, partook or received not an apple but "knowledge" (Genesis 3:5) from Satan, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, then gave Adam to eat of the tree, we see the allegorical sense of this verse. Ezekiel 2:8 – 3:4, which is probably the basis of our passage, gives us the meaning of the symbol: eating the scroll, or the Words of the scroll, and implies mastering the contents of the Book—inwardly digesting its meaning until its principles and truths become a precious revelation. "All My Words that I speak to you receive in your heart, and hear with your ears" (Ezekiel 3:10). He who is to be a witness and a prophet for his Lord, carrying God's Words to another, must first be impressed and penetrated with them himself. He must not only hear, read, mark and learn, but also inwardly digest them. Ezekiel 2:8-10, "You, son of man, listen to what I say to you; do not be rebellious like that rebellious house [of Israel]: open your mouth and eat what I am giving you. Then I looked, behold, a hand was extended to me; and, a scroll of a Book was in it. When He spread it out before me, it was written within and on the backside (Revelation 5:1); with lamentations, mourning, and woe" (a type of Revelation 8:13).
Ezekiel 3:1-4, "Then He said to me, Son of man, eat what you find; eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel. So I opened my mouth, and He caused me to eat that scroll. And He said to me, Son of man, feed your belly, and fill your bowels with this scroll which I am giving you. Then I ate it; and it was sweet as honey in my mouth. Then He said to me, Son of man, go to the house of Israel, and speak with My Words to them".
Also compare Jeremiah 15:16, "Your Words were found, and I ate them; and Your Words became for me a joy and the delight of my heart; for I have been called by Your Name, O Lord God of hosts." The meaning is plain, Jeremiah was to become one with Words of the Book; to receive it into his mind and apply it as food for Spiritual nourishment—truth having, in this respect, the same relation to the mind as food has to the body.
"To eat," in various Eastern languages, is expressive of receiving. Job 23:12, "I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have esteemed the Words of His mouth more than my necessary food." Also Psalm 19:9-10, "The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. They are more to be desired than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb".
The late William Branham was the angel to the seventh or Laodicean Church Age which ended in 1963; he introduced our Messenger Jesus Christ, the mighty Angel Who came down from heaven. We are NOT looking for the M_A_N from Galilee: the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form. The heavenly Voice directed us to take the little Book open in Christ's hand. As we devour and inwardly digest the Prophet's Message we become one with Christ, the fullness of the Word.
The 'third pull' of Brother Branham's Message is as sweet as honey in my mouth, "quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart" so that no man can withstand it. But we must discipline rebellion from the ten senses of our flesh and spirit and endure the bitter reproach of friends while holding the Token of the Life of Christ on display. For we are commissioned to "prophesy again concerning many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings."
A prophet is one who speaks in behalf of another, as Aaron was called the prophet or spokesman of Moses. Exodus 4:15-16, "You shall speak to Aaron, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with your mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what you shall do. And Aaron shall be your spokesman to the people: and he shall be to you instead of a mouth, and you shall be to him instead of God." God's prophets were His spokesmen, into whose mouth God put the Words which they were to speak to the people. So Christ's end-time Bride must eat, devour and become at one with the revelation of the end-time Message that we may "prophesy again concerning many peoples and nations, and tongues and kingdoms" as organs of the Holy Spirit (Revelation 10:8-11).
Revelation 11:1-2, "And the Angel, Christ, gave me a reed like a rod, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God (Gk.) 'naos', and the altar, and them that worship therein [signifying the 144,000 elect blood Israelites]. And the court which is outside the temple cast out, you shall not measure it; for it is given to the Gentiles [Rome and the international Jews with whom they will be in covenant (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 13:15-18; 17:12 – 18:15) and they will tread the holy city under foot forty-two months." The first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Daniel 7:25; Revelation 12:14; 13:5).
The measuring implies a resolve to protect portion of the sacred enclosure from desecration and is a sign of preservation during impending dangers. Two Greek words are rendered Temple: 'hieron' signifies the whole compass of the sacred enclosure, including the outer courts, porches, porticoes, and other buildings subordinated to the Temple itself; 'naos' is the house of God, the Holy and Holy of Holies. Christ taught the people in the 'hieron,' one of the porches or courts of the sanctuary. But Zacharias went into the 'naos' or Temple proper, leaving the people in the outer court, or the court where the brazen altar stood. We are measuring the naos and the character of those who worship therein by the Rod of our THUS SAITH THE LORD.
Now we cannot embark on an exposition of the remainder of the parenthesis of Revelation 10:1 – 11:13 under the Sixth Seal between the Sixth and the Seventh Trumpets as they are placed in the Book. Suffice to say that for fifty days after the close of the Gentile dispensation Christ's end-time Bride will be on earth manifesting that we are the Sons of God while the resurrection of our Church Age brethren proceeds dispensation by dispensation. When one of these glorified saints appears to us our recognition will supercharge faith, enabling us to change in the atoms and cross into the Sixth Dimension.
So long as we are present earth is a Mercy Seat because the Life is in the Blood and we are the Blood of Christ by the baptism with the Holy Ghost. Upon our departure earth will become a Judgment Seat and the Lord will anoint two Israelites of Jacob's lineage with the Spirit that endued Moses and Elijah (Zechariah 4, Matthew 24:31, and Revelation 11). Their ministry will call out 144,000 elect Israelites from those who return to the Land of the Covenant in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. They will teach how Israel sank from Yahweh Torah into Talmudism, Great Babylon's "mark of the beast" and reveal the judgments of the Seven Trumpet mysteries from Calvary to the present. With the world economy restored in the midst of the Seventieth Week Rome will abrogate her covenant with the Jewish banksters of the City of London and enforce Mystery Babylon the Great's "mark of the beast," trinitarianism, at the dedication of Israel's third temple (Isaiah 14:13-14; Revelation 13:15-18).
The understanding of the Israelites will be holden until after their two prophets are martyred, whose dead bodies will lie three and a half days in the street of Jerusalem which is called "Sodom," the homosexual Mecca of the Middle East for its desperate moral corruption (Isaiah 1:9), and "Egypt" for its tyranny and religious corruption (Amos 8:11). Despite its pretensions to sanctity on the ground of spiritual privileges; all the while it is the murderer of Christ in the person of His members. The prophets will be restored to life and stand on their feet, then in response to a loud Voice from heaven they will be assumed in a Cloud as their enemies behold them. "A great earthquake will destroy a tenth of Jerusalem, killing seven thousand men, and the terrified remnant will give glory to the God of heaven" (Revelation 11:13; 12:16; Matthew 23:39).
According to Daniel 9:26-27 and Luke 21:24, "Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled." That is, to the consummation of life. Hebrews 13:12-14, "Wherefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own Blood, suffered without the gate of Jerusalem. Let us go forth therefore unto Him without the camp, bearing His reproach. For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come".
Revelation 14:20, "The winepress [of God's wrath] will be trodden without the city [of Jerusalem as Jesus was crucified without the City], and blood will come out of the winepress even to the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs"—200 miles. Genesis 49:11-12, Isaiah 63:1-7, Ezekiel 34, Matthew 23:35-37, Revelation 2:9, 16:19 and 18:24 show the parallels between apostate Jerusalem and apostate Vatican City State.
The parenthesis of Revelation 10:1 – 11:13 and the Second Woe of earth's birth pains precedes the Seventh Trumpet of Revelation 11:14-19 which reads from the Sixth Trumpet of Revelation 9:13-21. The Seventh Trumpet of Revelation 11:15 under the Sixth Seal of Revelation 6:12-17 will mark the end of the Christian dispensation "Great voices in heaven prophesy, saying, The kingdom of the world has become our Lord's and His Christ's; and He will reign forever and ever to the ages of the ages. And the twenty-four elders, who sit before God on their thrones, fell on their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give You thanks, O Lord God the All-ruler, who is, and who was; because You have taken Your great power, and have begun to reign".
Revelation 11:18-19, "And the nations were angry, and Your wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that You should give reward to Your servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear Your name, small and great; [in the (Gk.) 'Bema' judgment at the Wedding Supper] and should destroy those who destroy the earth" in the Third Woe (Revelation 7:1-3; 12:12)—notably the US, UK, NATO, the Coalition of the Willing, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States, etc., "And the Temple of God in heaven was seen to be open because there was no veil and the ark of His Testament was seen in His the Most Holy Place [signifying God's renewed favour toward Israel and the gradual removal of their spiritual blindness (Romans 11:25)]: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake [sinking Los Angeles], and great hail [which will be the judgment of the self-styled second Eve, prostitute church of Rome]" (Revelation 16:21).
Lost at the time of the Babylonian captivity, and never since found, the ark is seen when "the temple of God in heaven was opened," signifying that God now enters again into covenant with His ancient people. The Ark was a type of Jesus Christ; Israel's former rain is about to fall through the ministry of their prophets in the first part of Daniel's Seventieth Week (as it fell for us in Revelation 4:1-2) and consummated in their latter rain (Revelation 15:5; Matthew 27:25).
As I speak, the so-called Christian churches having apostatised are heathen once again. nl995.htm
