Bible Believers' Newsletter 1021
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
The malicious and cowardly attack upon Syria by Jew-ruled apostate (once) Christian nations living on past reputations betrays the cruelty of sin, and the penalty that it cost to rid sin from the lives of God's elect. This attack was rationalized by a BIG LIE like the three holocausts or exterminations, each of six million 'Jews' claimed in the twentieth century. This BIG LIE claims that although the US and UK trained, armed and directed their proxy Jihadist armies in chemical warfare, the noble, brave patriot President al-Assad is guilty of their dastardly deeds. In reality Vatican City State holds the gold whilst Mammonites such as Rothschild juggle the global fractional reserve system of usury that creates fiat money out of thin air aided by the oil-rich Dönmeh Jews of the House of Saud.
Whilst Vatican gold is a real asset that will only appreciate in value, Rothschild City of London paper wealth can fail overnight with the world economy. As for the sovereign City State of Washington D.C., a nation alien to the fifty united States it rules, Brother Branham's prophecy has overtaken its military and technologically, Russia is ten years ahead.
Today we complete our study, "The Friend of the Bridegroom." Brother William Marrrion Branham was a Covenant Prophet and the last Word prophet to us Gentiles, seen and heard throughout the Book of Revelation and by prophets in the Old Testament. He led us to the eternal Land of the millennium, and like Joshua who led the children of Israel into Canaan, he was "strong and very courageous and observed to do according to all the revealed Word, turning from it neither to the right hand or to the left, so that he prospered wherever he went" (Joshua 1:7). In this day eternal Life rests upon receiving and living by a clear understanding of the Message Jesus Christ delivered through his ministry.
The dispensation of the seven Church Ages in which the true Kingdom of heaven was not entered has ended; the Church Age saints enter the Presence via the grave. "[Like the Old Testament saints], these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise of glorification (Romans 8:17-19): God having provided some better thing for us, (I Corinthians 15:51-56) that they without us should not be made complete." They are still waiting for the last saint predestinated to Christ's end-time Bride to be baptized into the Body in this holy convocation (Leviticus 23:15-21), before their resurrection and glorification Church Age by Church Age, and for us to manifest that we are the Sons of God. Then one of them will appear, elevating faith for translation grace, and your terrestrial body will take on a celestial body transformed in a moment of time to take you Home. Because Jesus was born without sexual desire, your new body will be without sexual desire.
While the Church Age saints waited for His Coming, the friend of the Bridegroom Brother Branham introduced the Kingdom anew with the appearing of Jesus Christ in the Cloud on Sunset Mountain and we have been blessed in fellowship with the Son of Man (King of kings and Judge) for fifty-five years since His second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming. In our entering the Kingdom, God raised us up from the dust to the place of fullness of Life and experience, filling the soul with Himself as the Logos has brought us into the understanding of ourselves.
Thy way, not mine, O Lord,
However dark it be;
Lead me by Thine own hand,
Choose out the path for me.
Smooth let it be or rough,
It will be still the best;
Winding or straight, it leads
Right onward to Thy rest.
I dare not choose my lot;
I would not, if I might;
Choose Thou for me, my God,
So I shall walk aright.
Take Thou my cup, and it
With joy or sorrow fill,
As best to Thee may seem;
Choose Thou my good and ill.
Choose Thou for me my friends,
My sickness or my health;
Choose Thou my cares for me,
My poverty or wealth.
The kingdom that I seek
Is Thine: so let the way
That leads to it be Thine,
Else I must surely stray.
Not mine, not mine the choice
In things or great or small;
Be Thou my guide, my strength
My wisdom, and my all.
Thy Way, Not Mine, O Lord By Horatius Bonar, 1857

A Statement issued by the Patriarchates
April 16, 2018 — We, the Patriarchs: John X, Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, Ignatius Aphrem II, Syrian Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, and Joseph Absi, Melkite-Greek Catholic Patriarch of Antioch, Alexandria, and Jerusalem, condemn and denounce the brutal aggression that took place this morning against our precious country Syria by the USA, France and the UK, under the allegations that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons. We raise our voices to affirm the following:
This brutal aggression is a clear violation of the international laws and the UN Charter, because it is an unjustified assault on a sovereign country, member of the UN. It causes us great pain that this assault comes from powerful countries to which Syria did not cause any harm in any way.
The allegations of the USA and other countries that the Syrian army is using chemical weapons and that Syria is a country that owns and uses this kind of weapon, is a claim that is unjustified and unsupported by sufficient and clear evidence.
The timing of this unjustified aggression against Syria, when the independent International Commission for Inquiry was about to start its work in Syria, undermines of the work of this commission. This brutal aggression destroys the chances for a peaceful political solution and leads to escalation and more complications . . .
We salute the courage, heroism and sacrifices of the Syrian Arab Army which courageously protects Syria and provides security for its people. We pray for the souls of the martyrs and the recovery of the wounded. We are confident that the army will not bow before the external or internal terrorist aggressions; they will continue to fight courageously against terrorism until every inch of the Syrian land is cleansed from terrorism. We, likewise, commend the brave stand of countries which are friendly to the Syria and its people . . . Full story: voltairenet.org
Russia reveals Who 'Staged' Syria Gas Attack
April 16, 2018 — Russia's permanent representative to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), Alexander Shulgin, said Russia has irrefutable evidence that there was no chemical weapons incident in Douma . . . "this was a planned provocation by the British intelligence services, probably, with the participation of their senior allies from Washington with the aim of misleading the international community and justifying aggression against Syria" . . . Syrian Civil Defense Force (aka the White Helmets) is funded in part by USAID . . . contracts awarded to Chemonics International Inc. (DBA Chemonics). The first award . . . $111.2 million . . . January 2013 to June 2017 . . . for managing a "quick-response mechanism supporting activities that pursue a peaceful transition to a democratic and stable Syria." The second . . . $57.4 million . . . August 2015 to August 2020 . . . Implement Fast Transitions SWIFT IV" (Disobedient Media) . . . Full story: zerohedge.com
Comment: Eight reasons why the latest Syria chemical weapons attack allegations are almost certainly complete nonsense.
The US is involved in overthrowing Assad . . . to gain oil resources, keep US dollar afloat, cripple Russian economy, fight for Israel's interests. Bankers, multinational oil companies and military contractors . . . . little chance peace will break out in Syria because the economies of Russia, Iran, the US and Saudi Arabia hinge on whether pipelines will be built across the war-torn country . . . Israel seeks to expand its territory and dominance in Middle East . . . war was used by globalists . . . to overwhelm Europe with migrant refugees who pose a threat. needtoknow.news
April 12, 2018 — Poison gas, the weapon of choice for fear . . . the US economy is based on war, is based on weapon manufacturing and international banking which finances weapon manufacturing and the exploitation of mineral resources coveted by weapon manufacturing. The entire war industry with all its associated civil services and industries, of banking, electronics, aviation, mining . . . makes up more than half of the US GDP—but of course, it's never broken down that way. The [self] chosen people will control the world. Well, they do already—financially at least the western part of our globe. But it's not enough . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Syrian 'Show' must go on . . . Carefully 'Choreographed' Dance between US and Russia
April 14, 2018 — What just happened this morning in Syria was nothing more than a carefully "choreographed" dance between the US and Russia that allowed both rivals to "save face" and avoid further escalating the situation.
The US launched over 100 cruise missiles at Syria together with its French and British allies, although the Russian Ministry of Defense reported that 71 of them were intercepted by the targeted country's Soviet-era air-defense systems . . . the US and Russia were communicating this entire time through the so-called "deconfliction channel, so it's very possible that Washington warned Moscow in advance of the exact targets that it planned to hit and maybe even when. This would explain why Syria's Soviet-era air-defense systems were surprisingly more effective against modern-day cruise missiles than Iraq's exact same ones were 15 years earlier against much more dated weapons at the time . . .

Comment: April 14, 2018 — Two medics from the hospital of Douma told the truth about the staged video, widely spread by the discredited [US-UK funded, trained and equipped] White Helmets. The participants also say the event in Douma is a provocation.
April 14, 2018 — The Tass report says that the White Helmets staged the event because "London" had told them that the Assad Government was planning to bomb in Douma during 3-6 April and that the 'rebels' should then film their people bringing in victims of a chemical attack there, so as to provide a basis for subsequent bombing by the UK, US, and allies, as an alleged humanitarian response . . . The Tass account also implies that Russia has in its possession communications from the UK Government to the White Helmets, and will publish these communications unless the UK will back down without directly invading Syria . . .
April 15, 2018 — What is at stake here from the OPCW investigation is not only the international legitimacy of Syria's Government, but the international legitimacy of the Governments that invaded it on April 13th. These are extremely high stakes, even if no court in the world will possess the authority to adjudicate the guilt—either if the US and its allies lied, or if the Syrian Government lied.
April 14, 2018 — Joe Biden revealed in a speech at Harvard University in October of 2014, that the US 'allies'—Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Turkey—internationalized the war Syria by supporting the terrorist groups in Syria; that secret e-mails by Hillary Clinton stated unequivocally that both Saudi Arabia and Qatar supported, and perhaps continue doing so, the jihadi groups in Syria; and that Turkey, a close US ally, most likely played a major role in spreading chemical weapons in Syria.

Independent Swiss Lab: 'BZ Toxin' in Skripal Poisoning; US/UK-produced, not Russian
April 15, 2018 — the independent Swiss state Spiez lab, the substance used on Sergei Skripal was an agent called BZ, which was never produced in Russia, but was in service in the US, UK, and other NATO states.
The Swiss center sent the results to the OPCW. However, the UN chemical watchdog limited itself only to confirming the formula of the substance used to poison the Skripals in its final report without mentioning anything about the other facts presented in the Swiss document . . . Moscow would ask the OPCW about its decision to not include any other information provided by the Swiss in its report . . . the Swiss lab is also an internationally recognized center of excellence in the field of the nuclear, biological, and chemical protection and is one of the five centers permanently authorized by the OPCW.

Comment: March 27, 2018 — Salisbury nerve agent attack reveals $70 million Pentagon program at Porton Down. Porton Down scientists test chemical gas on London Tube passengers southfront.org.
April 14, 2018 — According to another group of experts, the US-led massive missile strike on Syria had an important background role. It was a kind of the US training ahead of a possible military action against Iran, actively promoted by the key American ally in the Middle East—Israel. This is why a part of the strike was delivered from the areas of the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf, which are relatively close to Iran.
In this case, if the Russian statement is confirmed, this will mean that the US and its allies not capable to deliver a decisive missile strike to defeat Iran in low cost . . . actions of the Syrian military assisted by Russia and Iran likely reduced significantly the results of the US strike and it turned into a PR action. southfront.org
April 16, 2018 — The question begs: Why before the OPCW could verify the claim of a nerve gas attack?—The answer is simple, because there was no nerve gas attack. In fact, there was no attack at all. It was all fake and staged. The OPCW would have found out—and killed any false justification to assault Syria. That's why.
That President Assad murders his own people, is, of course, a ridiculous claim, making absolutely no sense. Having reconquered Ghouta and Douma from the terrorists, i.e. from the US, UK and French proxies—and winning the foreign imposed war, why would anyone poison their compatriots, mostly women and children. Besides, as proven by Russian soldiers who were immediately after the alleged attack on site, there was no attack, there were no signs of an attack—a fact corroborated by many people questioned in the street, none of them witnessed any attack, chemical or otherwise.
This fake event was fabricated and staged by the White Helmets, a group of Al-Qaeda trained propaganda associates to the US/NATO and their European and Middle Eastern vassals. They have done this before . . ." (globalresearch.ca).
April 16, 2018 — The structure of US military alliances is in crisis . . . "enduring alliances" in support of America's "Long War" can no longer be relied upon. NATO is in crisis: The US and several NATO member states are not only at war with Syria, they are also at war with Turkey . . . which remains NATO's heavyweight in terms of conventional ground forces [and] has an alliance with both Russia and Iran, which in turn are supportive of the government of Bashar al Assad . . . "China has expressed openness toward Turkey's joining the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, a security alliance . . . seen as a counterweight to NATO" (to which Turkey happens to be a member) . . ."

Trump's Attempts to get us in a Thermonuclear Ditch must be Stopped
April 13, 2018 — Ever-Russophobic Britain . . . happy to unleash a propaganda war against Moscow together with Washington . . . followed by a major cyber offensive.

Calling for Arms Talks with Russia, is US raising a White Flag?
March 22, 2018 — Raising a white flag is an internationally recognized sign of truce and request for negotiation, which may be what the US is doing in its official response to Putin's announcements on nuclear parity with the US . . . Vladimir Putin's presentation of Russia's new weapons systems during his address to the Federal Assembly on March 1 seems to have finally elicited the desired response from its target audience in Washington, DC . . . more than a decade ahead of US and other competition. He scored a direct hit in the Pentagon, where senior generals were left dumbfounded . . . It is scarcely credible that this president came to the conclusion about the need to halt the arms race on his own or that he dared raise such an inflammatory subject without having the firm backing of Pentagon specialists who evaluated rationally and expertly where we now stand in strategic security with the Russians. No one will say this, but it is inescapable . . . Full story: consortiumnews.com

Church of England to consider Baptism for Animals
April 1, 2018 — The Church of England is poised to consider the baptism of animals for the first time, it was announced today . . . Synod members will be asked to consider the implications of introducing a liturgy for pets 'in the light of an emerging consensus about the value of the environment and an increasing consciousness of animal sentience and awareness . . .

Comment: "Baptism is the answer of a conscience that is clear in God's Presence by the resurrection of Jesus Christ" (I Peter 3:21), "the last Adam," not the last "Rover." As Brother Branham prophesied, "the world is going insane".
The Friend of the Bridegroom, Part III
Revelation 1–3 deal with the Church. Insensible to apostasy, Laodicea closed in 1963: the churches put Christ without the camp at His second Coming as Israel rejected and crucified Jesus on His first Coming (II Timothy 4:4; Hebrews 6:6; 13:12-13; Revelation 3:15-20). The wise and foolish virgins have come out from the Church to meet the Bridegroom (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:14-16; Revelation 18:4). Christ's end-time Bride was caught up in Revelation 4, and the churches are marching arm-in-arm to the tribulation. Revelation 4–19 is Israel as a nation, and Revelation 19–22 is Israel and the Church!
Revelation 19:1-10 depicts Christ's Wife of all Ages after the Wedding Supper rejoicing over the destruction of the great harlot, Papal Rome, and the annihilation of her (once) Protestant image, the united States of America. Christ's end-time Bride is pictured as a W_O_R_D Bride, introduced to Her Husband by "the Friend of the Bridegroom," revealing "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever" veiled behind a sinner saved by grace "discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart" in our Sodom generation (Hebrews 4:12; 13:8). Misguided followers actually mistook him to be Jesus (Luke 17:28-30; Revelation 19:9-10; 22:6-10).
Veiled behind created flesh, God discerned the thoughts and intents of Abraham and Sarah before fire destroyed Sodom, and said, "I will certainly visit you in the next twenty-eight days, and Sarah your wife shall conceive a son . . ." This sign also identified the Word veiled behind virgin-born flesh (Luke 7:39-40; John 1:42; 47-50). The antitype of Genesis 18 has manifest in our day with Billy Graham and Oral Roberts ministering to the churches in Sodom while Abraham and Sarah type Christ's end-time Bride called out and separated from those churches. And as God gave Abraham and Sarah new bodies in order to bear their promised son, He will renew and glorify the bodies of His end time Bride before we meet our promised Son.
Revelation 19:1-10, "After these things (Revelation 17:1 – 18:24) [the casting out of Satan, Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet, Seventh Vial, Third Woe, the destruction of Vatican City, hence also the united States which is uniting church and state, and the rebirth and martyrdom of Israel in "the time of Jacob's trouble"], I heard a great voice of much people in heaven [the Church and the Old Testament Saints], saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: for His judgments declare Him to be true and righteous: for He has judged the Great Whore, which corrupted the earth with her fornication, and has avenged the blood of His servants at her hand" (Deuteronomy 32:43; Revelation 6:10; 18:24).
"And a second time . . . they said, Alleluia. And her smoke will rise forever and ever . . . [That's the old prostitute church which Israel regards as Edom as it was organized by Edomite Jews (Isaiah 34:1-10; Revelation 2:9, 13; 3:9; 14:11)] . . . And the twenty-four elders [representing the Old and New Testament saints (Matthew 19:28)] and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God who is seated on the throne, saying, Amen; Hallelujah."
"And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all you His servants, and you that fear Him, both small and great" (Luke 11:49-54; Revelation 18:20). This word "Alleluia" is used 24 times in the Book of Psalms, twice in the deuterocanonical books of the Judaeo-Catholic Bible, and four times in Revelation. It means "Praise the Lord." This Hebrew anthem of praise is sung chiefly at the feasts of Passover and of Tabernacles.
"And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude . . . (Here you are, Church. Christ's mediation and Redemption ended when the last saint predestinated to the Laodicean Church Age was baptized into Christ at Revelation 3:22. His end-time Bride and the 144,000 Israelites were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary because we were foreknown as receiving the fullness of the Word in the revelation of the Seven Seals or the Seven Trumpets delivered by our respective prophets; here she comes) . . . 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 has come [to pass], and His wife has made herself ready [for the Wedding Supper]. (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 righteous acts of saints. And he [the seventh angel William Branham, "the Friend of the Bridegroom" who guides John, representing Christ's end-time Bride, throughout the Book of Revelation (Revelation 1:1; 10:7)] told me, Write, Blessed are they who are called unto the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. And he [Brother Branham] said unto me. These are the true sayings of God. And I fell down at his feet to worship him [Brother Branham]. And he said unto me, See you do it not: I am your fellowservant, [a prophet like yourself] and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."
[This scripture was fulfilled in real life when one of his confused followers, overcome by the parade of the Supernatural imagined that the Prophet actually was Christ. The fulfilment of this event is recounted in two sermons "Revelation Chapter Five," Parts I (MP3 audio) and II (pdf transcript)].
In Revelation 22:6-19, "He [the seventh angel and "Friend of the Bridegroom," Brother Branham] said to me [John, representing Christ's end-time Bride], These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel [Brother Branham] to show unto His servants the things which must shortly be done. Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keeps the sayings of the prophecy of this Book [because they are THUS SAITH THE LORD]. And I John [representing Christ's end-time Bride] saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel [Brother Branham] who showed me these things. Then he told me, See that you do it not: for I am your fellowservant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this Book: worship God."
"And he told me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this Book [or Revelation of the Seven Seals which Jesus opened on March 8, 1963 and revealed through His Prophet from March 17 to 24, 1963]: for the time [of the first resurrection and translation] is at hand" [Revelation 10:7; 19:9]. The Church Ages are OVER, we have been in "the time of the end" for fifty-five years: even Daniel heard and saw Brother Branham revealing the Seven Thunders, which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:1-6). IT IS TIME TO GO HOME; is there but one more year? "He who is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he who is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to recompense every man according to what he has done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last."
"Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have right to the Tree of Life, and may enter in through the gates into the City. Outside are the dogs, and the sorcerers, and the whoremongers, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying."
"I Jesus have sent My angel [William Branham] to you with this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star."
"The Spirit and the Bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" And let the thirsty come; he who desires it, let him take freely the waters of Life."
"I warn everyone who hears the Words of the prophecy of this Book, [Brother Branham's THUS SAITH THE LORD]. If anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues that are described in this Book: and if anyone take away the Words of the prophecy of this Book, God will take away his part in the Tree of Life, and in the holy City as described in this Book".
Brother Branham was a Covenant Prophet, the last Word Prophet to us Gentiles. Seen and heard by Old Testament prophets, he delivered the Revelation of Jesus Christ to John: "THUS SAITH THE LORD" by His unfailing Word stands, and shall stand and be vindicated. There is one prophet-messenger to this age. On the basis of human behaviour alone, anyone knows that where there are many people there is even divided opinion on lesser points of a major doctrine which they all hold together. Who then will have the power of infallibility which is to be restored in this last age, for this last age is going to go back to manifesting the Pure Word Bride? That means we will have the Word once again as it was perfectly given, and perfectly understood in the days of Paul (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11; Jude 3). I will tell you who will have it. It will be a prophet as thoroughly vindicated, or even more thoroughly vindicated than was any prophet in all the ages from Enoch to this day, because this man will of necessity have the capstone prophetic ministry, and God will show him forth. He won't need to speak for himself, God will speak for him by the voice of the sign. Amen.
Throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ's end-time Bride. Revelation 1:1, "The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him [after His earthly sojourn], to show His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel [William Branham] to His servant John." We know this is so because the Bible was sealed from before creation to "the time of the end" when it was revealed to the seventh angel, Brother Branham, who revealed it to His Church from March 17 to 24, 1963 (Revelation 10:7).
Revelation 3:14, "To [Brother William Branham], the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the [Beginner and the] beginning of the [new] creation of God-[men and God-women] . . ." (II Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 6:15).
Revelation 10:7, "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".
Revelation 11:1-2, "And there was given me a reed like a rod [of the unbending THUS SAITH THE LORD]: and I was told, Rise and measure the temple (Gk.) 'naos' of God, and the altar [of incense], and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and they shall tread the holy city under foot forty two months."
Jerusalem's Temple was no more at the time of these visions and the third Temple will not be constructed and dedicated until the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, while the millennium Temple of Ezekiel 40-48 is not a building but an emblem of the regenerated Israel nation of 144,000 elect Israelites born in one day (Isaiah 66:8). The Outer Court will comprise the whole of the city which will be trodden under foot by the Gentiles for forty-two months (Revelation 11:2). Ezekiel 40:3-4; 44:1-5; 47:3; Daniel 10:5-6; Zechariah 2:1-2; Revelation 1:15; 10:1-5, 9-10, and 21:15, show it is Christ Who will pass the Absolute of God's staff of correction to John, Christ's end-time Bride, to measure or assess the elect Israelites. This measuring will call-out 144,000 elect Israelites by revelation of the THUS SAITH THE LORD of Israel's two prophets, a 'Moses' and an 'Elijah' unfolding the mystery of their feast of Trumpets (Zechariah 4:11-14; Matthew 17:1-9; 24:30-31; Revelation 11:3-12). The millennium temple will be formed from the 144,000 as the Body of Christ was built up of "ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousand thousands" of saints. The reconciliation on Calvary made the Holy of Holies one with the Holy Place (Matthew 27:51); because "it will be called a house of prayer for all nations" (Isaiah 56:7) there are several Outer Courts.
Like Jesus Christ (Matthew 21:12; 26:55), Israel's two witnesses will prophesy, exercise their 'third pull' and be assassinated by the Judaeo-Roman beast; after lying unburied three and a half days they will resurrect and ascend to heaven from the Outer Court, or City of Jerusalem. However in the renewed heavens and earth New Jerusalem will be overshadowed by the horizontal rainbow of the Shekinah, and "the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the Temple or (Gk.) 'Naos' (Revelation 21:15-27), and the immeasurable Outer Court will be expanded to the domain of the nations of the 'saved' around the circumference of the earth non-elect whose kings will tithe of their increase to the City.
Revelation 14:9-11, "And the third angel [William Branham] followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascends up forever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receives the mark of his name".
Revelation 16:17-21, "The seventh angel [William Branham] poured out his vial into the air [the cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary and casting down of Satan, the prince of the power of the Air (Ephesians 2:2; Revelation 12:7-9), for the assumption of Christ's Bride for the Wedding Supper in the 'Sky Lounge']; and there came a great Voice out of the temple of heaven (Revelation 16:1), from the throne, saying, It is done" (Revelation 11:18-19; 15:8).
Revelation 17:1-3, "And there came one of the seven angels [Brother Branham] who had the Seven Vials, and talked with me [John who types Christ's end-time Bride], saying, Come here; I will show you the judgment of the Great [Judaeo-Roman Catholic] Whore that sits upon many waters [multitudes and nations]: with whom the kings of the earth have committed [spiritual] fornication [which is idolatry], and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away [in a vision] in the Spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of blasphemous names [Anglican, Methodist, Baptist, Pentecostal, etc.,] having seven heads and ten horns".
Revelation 18:1-3, "And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was Lightened with his glory (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:27-28; Revelation 10:7). And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of demons and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies".
Immediately after the mystery of the Great Whore and her denominational harlot daughters was made known in Revelation 17, God anointed the last angel, Brother Branham, to call His predestinated people "Come OUT of Babylon and be filled with the Spirit." The last call before Revelation 19:1, "After these things . . ." the Bride saints with the Bridegroom go to the Marriage Supper (I Corinthians 15:50-56; I Thessalonians 4:14-17; Revelation 19:1-9).
Revelation 18:21, "A mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all." This is the prophecy of the sinking of Los Angeles, California at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial (Revelation 8:5; 11:15, 19; 16:18). Brother Branham was this "mighty angel" who fulfilled this symbolism three days before Good Friday, 1964 when the Lord spoke to His Prophet who was hunting with friends in Sunset Mountain. And on Good Friday Alaska almost sank according to his prophecy under a 9.2 magnitude earthquake and tsunami.
After the close of the Gentile dispensation the Prophet said, "There will be a ministry that will show great wonders, Joel said so, but there'll be no time for redemption. It's all over. The Lamb has done took His Book, and His redeemed is over. As Jesus first preached and was rejected, and then went and . . . preached to them that were in prison, could not repent, no time for salvation, that same ministry will have to repeat again. What if that could be the Third Pull, to the Eternal lost . . . Oh, think, people could go right on preaching, thinking they're getting saved, believing they're doing right, believing their organizations are growing, sure, and not even a ray of hope . . ." (Souls that are in Prison Now, p. 31:206, 349).
Isaiah 61:2b, Brother Branham's ministry was "To proclaim the day of vengeance of our God" (foreshadowed in Isaiah 63:4; 66:14-16; Malachi 4:1-3; II Thessalonians 1:7-9; Revelation 11:18; 18:20; 19:2).
Psalm 137:7-9, "Remember, O Lord, the children of Edom [Jewry] in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Raze it, raze it, even to the foundation thereof. O daughter of Babylon [Vatican City State, her (once) Protestant US image and Washington DC], who are to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewards you as you have served Israel. Happy shall he be, that takes and dashes your little ones against the stones" as Brother Branham prophesied also for the invasion of the united States (Isaiah 13:16; Zechariah 14:2; Lamentations 4:21-22; Ezekiel 36:5). Along with the City of London these sovereign city states conspire to rule the world from Jerusalem.
Isaiah 34:2, 8, "The indignation of the Lord is upon all nations, and His fury upon all their armies: He has utterly destroyed them, He has delivered them to the slaughter . . . it is the day of the Lord's vengeance, and the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion".
Revelation 13:10, "Then they that have led into captivity shall go into captivity and they that have killed with the sword shall be killed with the sword".
Revelation 21:9-10, "One of the seven angels [William Branham] who had the Seven Vials full of the seven last plagues, came and talked with me [John, typing Christ's end-time Bride] saying, Come here, I will show you the Bride, the Lamb's Wife. And he carried me away [by vision] in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that Great City, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God".
When the wedding day finally arrived the Israelite bridegroom in festive garments and wearing a crown of gold would proceed with "the friend of the bridegroom" and their companions from an unknown place at an unknown time to the bride's father's house, and the bride, veiled and crowned would be carried to the bridegroom's house (Matthew 24:36; John 14:1-4; I Thessalonians 4:14-17). Dressed as king and queen performing the oldest lawful institution (Genesis 2:24) they type Christ and His Bride. The sixth purpose of Gabriel's visit to Daniel is to anoint the Most Holy Place (Daniel 9:24; Ezekiel 40 - 48) which is the millennium temple—144,000 elect Israelites in whose heart Christ and His Wife, their King and His Queen will live and abide forever. When received by faith the Israel nation, all 144,000, will be born in one day. Their glorious new birth will "restore the Kingdom to Israel" (Acts 1:6). nl1021.htm
