The Restoration of All Things
God takes His man but never His Spirit, and the Devil takes his man but never his spirit. They remain to anoint some other person, saint or sinner, and because spirits don't die, history repeats. Therefore all Scripture has a compound meaning with a natural and a Supernatural understanding.
Hosea 11:1 spoke of God calling His natural son, Israel, out of Egypt by Moses. In Matthew 2:13-15, the Lord warned Joseph in a dream to flee to Egypt, as Herod was seeking to destroy His Supernatural child, "To fulfill the Word of the Lord by the prophet Hosea, saying, 'Out of Egypt have I called My Son.'" The compound pointed to God's greater Son, the Spiritual antitype He would call out of Egypt.
Jesus was rejected by Herod and all of his kingdom through unbelief. God had permitted that generation to be blinded by tradition and creed so that we Gentiles might enter the Abrahamic Covenant. And because they were blinded, the nation of Israel had pardon. However our generation who make light of the Holy Ghost is unpardonable (Matthew 12:32).
Let's study a compound meaning of Acts 3:17-23: "I know that through ignorance you killed Messiah, as did your rulers (Acts 4:1, ". . . the priests, the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees. . ."). But those things, which God had declared by the mouth of all His prophets, that Christ should suffer, He has fulfilled."
"Repent therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing (or Seven Church Ages which ended when Christ opened the Seven Seals in 1963 and were the antitype fulfilling the seven sabbaths of the Pentecostal Feast) . . . shall come from the Presence of the Lord; And He shall send Jesus Christ, Who before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things (first to the Gentiles by our Elijah, William Branham, then to Israel by their Elijah and Moses), which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began."
The "times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began" must come to pass before Jesus can return. Once again we see a compound meaning in Scripture.
The glorified Jesus Christ cannot set foot on this earth for the Millennium until the restoration of all nature. This confirms Malachi 4:1-3 where we learn that Jesus' physical return is accompanied by the glorified saints of all ages and follows the battle of Armageddon which destroys ALL life on earth. Thus there must be a "restoration of all things" before He sets foot on earth (Isaiah 13:9; II Thessalonians 1:8-9; Matthew 3:12; Revelation 19:20, etc).
Most denominational believers are misguided because they expect Jesus Christ will physically descend from heaven to the chaos of this present age before the two witnesses to Israel. They expect the Man. Jesus said "Do NOT look for a man! My Coming will be UNIVERSAL, and NO man can appear universally. My Coming will be Light revealing the fullness of the Word. The Light that shone in the East through the ministry of the apostles and prophets will be RESTORED in the West (Matthew 24:23-28; 17:11; Jude 3; Malachi a:5-6; Acts 3:21). It will be a "parousia" Coming; NOT a Man, but My Presence IN you through faith in the FULLNESS of the Word."
The revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963 brought Christ back to earth in WORD form through the mouth of His prophet, William Branham. "When the FULLNESS of the Word has come, PART-Word and a Mediator shall be done away" (I Corinthians 13:10). This brings us to the compound meaning of Acts 3:21.
On Mount Transfiguration Jesus showed Peter, James and John a vision of the glorified Son of Man coming in His Kingdom preceded by the two witnesses to Israel (Matthew 16:28-17:13). He said, "BEFORE this happens, the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6 (William Branham) must first come and RESTORE all things". Then He declared John the Baptist, who foreran His first Coming and was already dead, had been the Elijah of Malachi 3:1.
The Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6 "restores all things" SPIRITUAL. He does NOT restore nature. He restores the apostolic faith.
Revelation 10:7 and Acts 3:21 inform us that "in the days when the Voice of the prophet-messenger to the Laodicean Church Age begins to reveal the Seven Seals, the mystery of God spoken by the mouth of ALL His holy prophets since Adam shall be finished". And "there is silence in heaven the space of half an hour" because the FULLNESS of the Word has been delivered to God's people here on earth (Revelation 8:1; II Peter 1:20-21). The angel to the Seventh Church Age was a prophet, and the revelation of the Seven Seals brought the Christ, the FULLNESS of the Word, back to earth. Not Jesus the Man -- but Christ the Word.
The Greek word "parousia", translated "Coming" in English Bibles, refers not to our Lord's physical (or "erchomai") return but to His & quot;arrival and subsequent presence". If we were conversing on the telephone, I would be in your presence (parousia) although neither of us would have physically entered (erchomai) into the presence of the other. If you are receiving the revelation of these words, you will see the parousia or Presence of the Lord in His Word.
The "restoration of all the Word" is the Coming of Christ the Word; but not Jesus the Man, Who said, "If they say, I am in the desert, or some secret place, don't believe them: they are deceived and looking for the WRONG Coming". He has "come as a thief" to be PRESENT with and in His Bride by a clear understanding of His Word, bringing her into the unity of the faith as He prayed (John 17:21) and like Paul foretold for the end of the Gentile dispensation (Ephesians 1:10; 4:13; II Thessalonians 2:2). Clearly, the fullness of the Word must be restored before the Bride can manifest the Sons of God, and before earth can be restored for the physical return of our glorified Lord Jesus.
"For Moses truly said unto the fathers, a Prophet (Jesus Christ) shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like me; Him shall you hear in all things whatsoever He shall say unto you."
Jesus promised us Gentiles a prophet with a ministry of restoration before the end of our Dispensation. Matthew 17:11, "Elijah truly shall come before the resurrection and translation, and he shall restore all things", by "turning the heart of children back to the faith of their apostolic fathers" (Malachi 4:5-6).
"And it shall come to pass, that every soul who will not hear THAT prophet (William Branham, our Elijah), shall be destroyed from among the people". Whereas the Bride will be restored to the apostolic faith and in agreement with the Spirit, these others, by adding to and taking from the Word, will miss the first resurrection and be cast into the tribulation (Revelation 22:17-19).
You will have noticed that I took a "short cut" in explaining that last verse, applying "that prophet" directly to the Elijah with the restoration ministry, rather than to Jesus Christ. However if we take the "long way" and apply it to Jesus, we still come to the "Elijah" as I have shown by Jesus' own words.
Viewing Daniel 9 from the perspective of the 144,000 Hebrews in the Seventieth Week, "that Prophet" would be Messiah pointing Israel to their two prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 whose ministry will be to introduce Him to Israel the second time. "And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet (Jesus), shall be destroyed from among the people".
In the following verses, Peter explains how all of the prophets from II Samuel 7:11-17 had foretold that David's greater Son would rule Israel but first He would be rejected like David, and then crucified by His own people in order to fulfill the Covenant God made with their forefather Abraham: "Through your Seed (Jesus Christ) the Gentiles will be blessed". Then after His resurrection but before the Gentiles can be blessed, Jesus would FIRST be sent to Israel as a witness, and to forgive the penitent (Acts 3:24-26; Galatians 3:14-29; Isaiah 53; 55).
Even though God raised Him from the dead, the nation rejected Jesus, and so the Gospel came to us Gentiles (Acts 13:46). Yet the Church comprised mainly Israelite converts for 600 years. Whether Hebrew or Gentile God deals with His Church as individuals, but He deals with Israel as a nation. Once the Church is translated He will return to Israel, and 144,000 will be born-again in one day.
Israel has been ruled by the Gentiles since 606BC and although the "fig tree put forth leaves" or revived naturally when the State was reestablished after World War II, Israel is ruled by non-Semitic anti-Semitic self-styled Gentile "Jews", and will be under Roman domination until the consummation. The tiny minority descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to whom the natural Covenant and promises were given now live in a confused state through Talmudic teachings contrary to Moses and the prophets.
Called to be God's Voice to Judah during their seventy years captivity, Daniel was studying the prophecies of Jeremiah (25:11; 29:10). Sixty-eight years had expired, Babylon had fallen to the Medes and Persians, and he was asking God to reveal how he should prepare Israel for their restoration to the Homeland, to rebuild Jerusalem and the temple.
Babylon was home to polytheism, slavery, prostitution, usury, fractional reserve banking and every vice and unclean thing. And as the captivity lasted a life time, most Hebrews had been born in this pagan but prosperous land and would have been far from God. They had adopted the pagan calendar, intermarried with the Babylonians and the Serpent seed (like the Edomites and Canaanites) captives from Judea, established the synagogue form of worship, and rabbis usurped the Levitical priesthood and invented the so-called "oral law" (or Talmud). Israel had become a mixed multitude of genealogically nondescript learned intellectuals who knew not God (like "Jews" of today). Most of today's (so-called) Christians, raised under the Babylonian religious system of Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches, are no better.
Two years later in 536BC, King Cyrus proclaimed an edict whereby all Hebrews who were willing, could return to Jerusalem to restore the temple with financial support from his kingdom and those "Jews" who remained in Babylon (Ezra 1:1-11; Isaiah 44:28). As it happened, the majority of Judeans remained in Babylon which continued as the hub of Jewish scholarship until about AD1200. Hence the crucifixion of our Lord.
Daniel chapter 9 reveals the whole of God's dealings with Israel and Jerusalem from (Nisan) March 14, 445BC when king Artaxerxes ordered the rebuilding of the city and its walls (Nehemiah 2:1-8) to Israel's "parousia" and the consummation or the end of "the times of the Gentiles" (this date to be advised by Israel's Seventh Trumpet and the sinking of Los Angeles).
In response to Daniel's prayer, God sent Gabriel who revealed these things. Daniel 9:23-27, "At the beginning of your supplications the commandment came for me to show you; for you are greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter and consider the vision."
"Seventy weeks are determined upon your people and upon your holy city to:
- finish the transgression,
- make an end of sins,
- make reconciliation for iniquity,
- bring in everlasting righteousness,
- seal up the vision and prophecy,
- anoint the most Holy."
"Know and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times."
"After threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for Himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate."
These seventy weeks are not weeks of days but weeks of prophetic (360-day) years. In other words there would be 70x7=490 prophetic years in which God will deal with Israel as a nation descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and with Jerusalem their city.
God only deals with Israel as a nation IN the Land of the Covenant made with Abraham. Under the Law all adult male Israelites must assemble in Jerusalem three times in the year -- for the feasts of Passover and Unleavened Bread, Pentecost, and Tabernacles (Exodus 23:14-17; Deuteronomy 16:5-6). So the Seventy Weeks only count when Israel is able to sacrifice in Jerusalem. Cyrus' Edict made this possible and Ezra led the first return. Before work commenced on the temple he built an altar, and on the feast of Trumpets restored the continual burnt offerings (Ezra 3:1-6). An important type.
As Israel was blinded by God so that we Gentiles could receive the Promise and blessings typed by the Land of rest, and the Law with its feasts and sacrifices, it is obvious that God has NOT dealt with Israel other than in chastisement and the curses of Moses since they crucified Messiah (Deuteronomy 28:15-29; Leviticus 26:18; Matthew 27:25). The Seventy Weeks of God's favor were suspended at Calvary and have not counted since AD33 (calendar error aside).
Anyone following British Israel and Christian Identity teachings (so-called) is neither an Israelite nor a Christian. These and other Jewish fronts like the Jesuits, Jehovah Witnesses, Mormons, Freemasons, Nazis, Socialists, Communists and our controlled political party democracies, use sincere misguided souls to shield a fifth column that toils unceasingly to establish their anti-Semitic non-Semitic Luciferian kingdom of the Talmud. To confirm this, read Daniel 11-12, Revelation 17, the Talmud or any true history of these associations and their murderous activities. God's elect CANNOT be deceived on the revealed Word of God.
Daniel's Seventy Weeks are divided into three periods: 7+62+1=70 weeks. The 490 years commenced on March 14, 445BC (Nehemiah 1:1-2:8). From the commandment to restore and build Jerusalem to Messiah was 7+62=69 weeks or 483 prophetic years when Jesus' made His triumphal entry to Jerusalem on an ass on April 2, AD30. Israel strew His way with palm leaves, the symbol of victory, proclaiming, "Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest" (Zechariah 9:9; John 12:12-19).
Jesus' popularity ended the next day. When He returned to the temple and overthrew the tables of the money changers, they sided with the ministry to plan His death. Satan takes his man but never his spirit, so times have not changed.
When Pilate brought Jesus forth and sat down in the judgment seat, he said to the Judeans, "Behold your King!"
But they cried out, "Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him."
When Pilate said, "Shall I crucify your King?" The chief priests answered, "We have no king but Caesar" (John 19:13-15). Thus He was cut off "not for Himself: and the people of the Caesar's prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood. . ." (Daniel 9:26).
After 49 years Ezra restored Jerusalem's and its wall in perilous times. 434 years later Messiah was "cut off", and crucified five days later for the sins of others, including those who had rejected Him. From this point God ceased dealing with Israel, leaving one week or 7 years.
Israel rejected their God-sent Prince, acknowledging Caesar as King, and Titus, the prince who would become their Roman king, laid siege to Jerusalem in AD70. His armies destroyed the city and its temple with a flood. ". . . and unto the end of the war (with Rome) desolations are determined." This "war" for world hegemony is between Rome and the "Jews". Those who read history through Bible prophecy will be familiar with the records of Christendom which portray the warfare between Rome and the "Jews", who are both enemies of Israel, and Christianity, and God.
We learn from Daniel and Revelation that the "times of the Gentiles" commenced in 606BC and extend to "the end of the war" or consummation. Throughout this period Israel is without sovereignty and under dominion to Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and finally, Rome -- initially Imperial Rome, but following the First Nicea Council of AD325, Papal Rome. The Babylonian spirit that had perverted Israel's religion, and under John Hyrcanus, forced them to intermarry with the Edomites (Hittites or Khazars) and Canaanites who are accursed of God, created a race of IMPOSTORS to the covenant of Abraham in the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews who govern in Israel today.
Satan never changes his ways. He has persistently attempted to destroy Adam's race by miscegenation, as when the Serpent seduced Eve in the garden of Eden and fathered Cain. Physical adultery is the same spirit that is behind organized religion. Idolatry is spiritual fornication. And all fornicators will have their place in the lake of Fire. The spirit of fornication is the spirit of organization. The whore and her daughter churches will be in the lake of Fire. That is what God thinks of organization (Revelation 2:21-23; 17:1-6).
That Babylonian spirit that had perverted Israel's worship and polluted the race physically, was injected spiritually as the Trinity doctrine when the Roman Catholic church organized in AD325 as the religion of Empire, IMPOSTOR of Abraham's Spiritual Covenant, which is the new birth and true Christianity.
God hates hybreeding (John 6:63; Revelation 22:18-19). These two Satanic rivals usurped Abraham's natural seed (through Isaac and Jacob), and His Spiritual Seed (Christians) through Jesus Christ by the new birth. These deadly enemies, the self-styled "Jews" and the Roman FALSE Church will desolate Jerusalem with their warfare until the consummation.
Daniel 9:27, "The prince (or Devil-incarnate Pope of Rome) shall confirm the covenant with the state of Israel and the "Jews" (to bring peace, and to refinance the US dollar) for one week (this will be Daniel's Seventieth Week of seven years): and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation (which has been restored by religious non-elect Jews) to cease (Daniel 12:7; Revelation 11:3-8; 12:13-17; 13), and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, (because he will sit in the new temple as if he were God, and FORCE the mark of the beast -- Isaiah 14; Ezekiel 23:11-19; II Thessalonians 2:1-10; Revelation 13), even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate" whose names are not in the Book of Life (Revelation 13:8; 17:8; 18:1-20; 19:20; 20:5, 10).
World War III is now being incited between Islam and the political Zionists -- our (once) Christian West bound to Israel by Rome and the Zionists. After this war, according to Ezekiel, Daniel and Revelation, Rome's "prince" will unite all religions and restore peace. Initiating a seven-year agreement with the "Jewish" banksters to restore monetary stability, this Pope will establish his capital in Jerusalem (Daniel 11:45).
The Illuminatus "Jew" F.D. Roosevelt said, "If something happens in politics, you can bet it was PLANNED that way". After three and a half years when the world economy is prospering, Rome will break her covenant. This breach of agreement is purposed by those who control and are using Rome to establish the FIRST stage of their New World Order. It will be the pretext on which to isolate and destroy Rome and her United States image, and incite the final major revolution that will bring all religions into bloody conflict with the atheists, communists and nihilists, producing complete psychological and emotional attrition with the substitution of the pure Luciferian doctrine.
This will complete the three world wars and three major revolutions planned by Albert Pike to establish totalitarian one world rule for the Illuminati. This third major revolution becomes Armageddon which will destroy all life on earth.
The Bible is the story of God incarnating Himself in His people and Satan incarnating himself in his followers. Satan is the rider of the four horses of the Apocalypse. He is cast out of heaven at the close of the Gentile dispensation and incarnates Rome's Pope, "that man of sin". He will be revealed for who he is when he breaks his covenant in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week and forces the mark of the beast, demanding worship (II Thessalonians 2:3-11; Revelation 13). As the rider of the pale horse under the Fourth Seal he is called DEATH, and incarnate in the Roman "prince", will ride to perdition in the lake of Fire with all of his followers (Revelation 6:7-8; Revelation 19:20; 20:9-15).
"Seventy Weeks were determined upon Israel and Jerusalem to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy" (Daniel 9:24). This sixfold purpose is realized in the last half of the Seventieth Week when Israel's 144,000 are born-again and reconciled to God AFTER the Pope breaks his covenant, martyrs their two prophets, and imposes Catholicism on the whole world (Revelation 11:7-13; 12:13-17; see also Seal up the Vision and Prophecy, and Anoint the Most Holy
The Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's Visit to Daniel).
For three and a half years the Holy Spirit confirmed the Spiritual promise of Abraham's Covenant with Israel through the ministries of John the Baptist and Jesus Christ -- He came to His Own but they knew Him not. God then invited we Gentiles to receive the Promise, and has chastised Israel for her iniquity these past 2,000 years. After the Holy Spirit leaves the earth in His Church, God will reconfirm the Spiritual promise of Abraham's Covenant with Israel during the first three and a half years of Daniel's Seventieth Week. Thereafter, an election of 144,000 Israelites will be born-again.
God told Daniel, "Seventy weeks are determined upon (a) your PEOPLE and upon (b) your HOLY CITY". So for three and a half years God will deal with Israel's elect 144,000, and for a further three and a half years with Jerusalem (Luke 21:24).
Romans 11:26-27, "And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: for this is My covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins". bb000615.htm
