Bible Believers' Newsletter #137
"We focus on the PRESENT Truth -- what Jesus is doing NOW . . ." ISSN 1442-8660
We greet you in the wonderful Name of our Lord Jesus Christ and appreciate your fellowship.
The present world disorder is most easily understood as the outcome of the steps taken by the Money Power to paralyse the Anglo-Saxon, and subvert his institutions, including Christianity. Communism is the power-structure of a system of world government which has been exercised through centralized international control of the financial system -- a control which, since 1914, was largely directed towards the destruction of the British Empire, and Britain as a nation. Headquarters of the Money Power and co-agent with Russia of the International Conspiracy to attain world hegemony, is the USA.
In this issue we include a link (not for the faint of heart) which shows the once immense economic strength of South Africa -- once consciously opposed to the Communist Conspiracy -- devastated and turned back to barbarism by Jewish Communism.
This state of affairs is lauded by the once Christian, now largely Jew-controlled West, who honor her murderous Communist leaders with the keys to their Capitals. This growing power of apostate Jewry in the Roman Catholic world empire signals the end of the Gentile dispensation.
This newsletter serves those of like precious faith and whosoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything presented here should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.

Birds of a Feather
Vice President Al Gore's Jr.'s daughter Karenna recently married Andrew Schiff, a descendant of JACOB SCHIFF, the Jewish New York City banker and traitor to America who financed the communist revolution in Russia in 1917.
Jacob Schiff gave $20 Million Dollars in Gold (over $500,000,000.00 today) to Trotsky (Levi Bronstein) and Lenin (Vladimir Ilich Blanc Ulanyoff). They used this money to turn Russia into a terrifying Satanic anti-Christian communist slave state. The communist revolution resulted in a bloody holocaust of over 100 million dead Christians (never mentioned by our Jew-controlled media).

"Hate Crime" Legislation to Kill 1st. Amendment
Washington (Times) July 11, 2000 -- On June 20, the Senate passed a so-called hate crimes bill which, should it become law, endangers the liberties of all who are not part of a protected class. In fact . . .the only group not now covered are white men who are not disabled. . . Every other group, including racial minorities, the disabled, homosexuals and women all belong to a protected class. So, if a homosexual kills a non-handicapped white man it is not a hate crime. But if that white man kills a homosexual, it is a hate crime. Likewise with women. If a woman maims a white man it is not a hate crime under this legislation, but if a white man maims a woman of any color for any reason, it is a hate crime, and so it goes. (Letters to the Editor, Paul M. Weyrich, President. Free Congress Foundation, Washington).
Ed. This Bill is applauded by the non-Christian, anti-Christ Interfaith Alliance, and the defamatory hateful racist bigots of the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic Anti-Defamation League, adversary of the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who believe "Jesus is being boiled in excrement". Their rabbis openly minister behind the pulpit in Message churches -- so-called. (Gittin 57a; Yebamoth 98a; Shabbath 116a; Soferim 15, Rule 10; Zohar 1, 25b; Genesis 27:41; Leviticus 20:13; Deuteronomy 32:8. -- Amos 3:3).

Bloody Africa: the "City of London" at Work
South Africa -- Communist Archbishop, Desmond Tutu, chairman of the so-called Truth Commission, classifies the murder of babies by landmines planted on private farm roads an 'act of war', part of a 'justified struggle' by 'valiant heroes of the struggle' who were awarded medals for bravery by Communist President, Nelson Mandela.

Banks to put ATM's in Churches
London (Telegraph) September 17, 2000 -- The Church of England is drawing up plans to install hole-in-the-wall cash dispensing machines in thousands of rural churches. Senior officials want to exploit the vacuum left by the closure of bank branches and post offices across the countryside . . . banks said there would be no difficulty installing dispensers in naves or church halls. The prospect has dismayed traditionalists, who point out that Christ threw the money changers out of the Temple.
Ministers are convinced that churches in isolated areas offer the ideal venue for services such as post offices, mother-and-toddler groups, internet cafes and surgeries for visiting doctors. . . the idea of installing ATMs had huge potential.

Keep Islam out of Italy
London (Telegraph) September 16, 2000 -- Cardinal Giacomo Biffi, Archbishop of Bologna and a traditionalist sometimes seen as a possible successor to the Pope has provoked outrage by calling for Christian immigrants to be given preference over Muslims. He said the policy would "protect Italy's identity" against "Islam's ideological attack".
He added: "I don't know how you're going to cope with Friday as a holiday, polygamy, discrimination against women, and the fundamentalism of Muslims, for whom politics and religion are the same thing. Do your sums properly." His comments infuriated the Italian Left . . . Italy's annual wave of illegal immigrants has reached new heights during the summer, with boatloads of Kurds, Indians, Bangladeshis, Turks and Chinese arriving . . .

You are Gods!
"He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches; (to the true Church It is eternal Life and peace; to the false church, rebuke and condemnation). To him that overcomes I will give to eat of the hidden manna, and give him a white stone, and in the stone a new Name written, which no man knows except he who receives It" (Revelation 2:17; 19:12).
Only those attuned to and applying the revelation of God's Word in their life to overcome in the world can partake of the revelation (hidden manna), assured of the pure witness (white stone) of God's Seal of approval (new birth). For it is a clear revelation of the PRESENT Truth living through us that signifies to ourselves and to others that we are Christians, declaring that new Name in Christ the Word. A life lived by the Word is the Word expressed. Brother Branham called this "the Token" or evidence of the Life of Christ in us. Paul said the Token is "our hope of glory".
William Branham was a humble man in so many ways. But then, all who have been signally used of God were necessarily meek. Having done all, they rested upon faith in the Lord through prayer rather than human mastery, for their natural and Spiritual necessaries, and God's glory was displayed. Men like Moses, Jesus and Paul had a personal revelation of who they were. They knew their calling and their authority in the Word, and that they were vindicated of God.
All of God's great messengers knew to whom they were sent and for what purpose. They couldn't openly proclaim their Offices just as we cannot openly protest our Christian credentials. The Voice of the vindicated Word and signs spoke for them, as It identifies who we are. Besides, they could only recognize the people to whom they were sent as they recognized God in them fulfilling His Word for that hour, vindicating their calling. So "no man knows except he who receives" the Seal and Commission, and there can be no second-hand revelation because God must reveal Himself personally to each individual.
You may hear the report, but that might be the letter without the Spirit. You will never know whether the water is hot or cold until you dive in and experience it for yourself. And the faith can be explained endlessly, but unless It is personally confirmed to you by inspiration of the Holy Ghost you will not receive It as understanding, only learn it as knowledge (I Corinthians 12:13).
The lives of God's servants, great and small, who have gone before us were examples for our admonition. Where they made a mistake or in some way fell short we learn what not to do and witness God's great grace.
Brother Branham remarked how most people live below their God-given privileges, not having a revelation of who they are and what they can be through staking their claim on the redemptive power of our Kinsman Redeemer. Instead of building faith muscles with soul food for eternal Life, most enslave their soul in the prison house of ten mortal senses of their earthly body and spirit. Some even have a form of godliness but deny the revelation or power thereof.
All great men of God and heroes of faith were signs to us. "Surely the Lord God will do nothing without first sending and vindicating His prophet with warning and a way of escape before judgment" (Amos 3:7). One of the most notable signs is a vindicated prophet. A prophet is a sign of impending judgment.
The prophet Ezekiel delivered his Message in pantomime as he lay so many days on his left side signifying the number of years Israel would be punished for his iniquity, and so many days upon his right side, signifying the years Judah would be punished for his iniquity (Ezekiel 4).
Noah was a sign of the judgment coming upon his generation. It had never rained and there was no sea. Yet as he preached, Noah transformed his Message into a huge boat on top of a mountain. What a bold sign! Imagine what the critics thought of Him. He had a clear revelation of his Message; he was living It, making ready for its fulfillment. And one who really believes our Message, will make ready. Jesus foretold, "My Bride has made Herself ready for the Wedding Supper and her revelation to Israel" (Revelation 19:7).
Jesus said, "As were the days of Noah so also shall the "parousia" coming of the Son of man be." If we believe that, we will practice what we preach and make preparations for our going-up as Noah made preparations for his going over.
We must escape the mind manipulation of Trinitarian teaching which has a separate, untouchable, remote godhead, and understand that the Bible is the story of God unfolding Himself or expressing the Attributes of His nature and character into His Family. God is changing His form from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts by creating Himself into the glorified flesh of His family or true Church. The unbelievers accused Jesus of blasphemy because being a man, He made Himself God. Jesus answered, "Is it not written in your Law, I said, 'You are gods?' . . . He called them gods, to whom the Word of God came, and the Scripture cannot be broken" (Exodus 4:16; 26:28; Psalm 82:6; Matthew 5:14; John 10:33-35).
Jesus knew God's plan, and His part in it. Jesus was the beginning of the creation of God, born of a virgin, less than 2,000 years ago (Revelation 3:14). In Him dwelt the fullness of God's nature and character. "It was becoming to God Who made everything for His Own glory, that He should allow the Captain or forerunner of our salvation to suffer vicariously on our behalf, for in so doing God was bringing many Sons into glory, and His suffering made Jesus a perfect leader, one fit to bring us into salvation. And we who have been made holy by Jesus now have the same Father, which is why Jesus is not ashamed to call us His brothers" (Hebrews 2:10-11). Romans 8:29, "For those whom God foreknew He predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son that He would be the firstborn among many brothers". Or "have the preeminence" (Colossians 1:18-20).
God's law of reproduction states that everything must bring forth of its own kind (Genesis 1:11). So if God has a Son, He will be just like His Father. And if that Son has many sons, they too will display that nature, being part of the Logos or Word. All of them will be little gods. If you are a "little god" you are part of the Word of God. Christians are at one or in agreement with the Word, and cannot deny one Word for we are part of the Word made manifest in our flesh. If, however the Word commands one thing and you deny that Word to do something contrary, you prove you did not come from the Logos, and can not be redeemed by God.
Every Son of God must come to this realization. To know you are at one with God is to know your life is the expression of God's love through Jesus Christ as a baby is his parents love expressed through holy wedlock. God's perfect love casts out fear. So come boldly before the throne of God with your needs, knowing you are clean and in the will of God and asking only for what is His will. Shrug off that nicolataine put-down. Use the Word, and expect It to manifest what is spoken.
When God put Jesus to sleep on Calvary, He took the New Testament Church from His side in the form of the Holy Spirit as He took Eve from the side of the first Adam in the form of a rib. Eve was not another creation apart from Adam; God had finished his creation a hundred-odd years beforehand. Eve became a continuation of Adam: flesh of his flesh and bone of his bone. The elect and true Church is the continuation of the last Adam, Word of His Word, Spirit of His Spirit, no less a part of God than our elder Brother, Jesus.
We are joint heirs with Christ. His destiny is our destiny, and we were made to be His glory. We are His Attributes and One with Him. What God has joined together by the Holy Spirit no man can put asunder. Since we are manifested Attributes of God, we should act like Sons and Daughters of God, knowing our position in the Word, and applying It to our lives for His glory.
When God trusts us sufficiently to place the Sword of the Spirit into our hands, we will have the skill and discretion to use It. That will be at the time of the full adoption, after the close of the Gentile dispensation. Then we will be mature Sons, our feet shod with the Gospel, our loins girt with truth, the shield of faith in our hand, and bearing the breastplate of righteousness. We will be God's second Masterpiece.
God will smite us as He smote Christ, and we will speak the Word. Rejected by the churches and separated from men, we will become a hunted and persecuted little group of individuals. Like the original Masterpiece in His separation, we shall perform God's will in the manifestation of the Sons of God (Matthew 26:39). Unlike the Captain of our salvation, Who paid sin's price through His death, not one hair of our head will suffer harm, and God will take us Home before tribulation plagues fall.
As joint heirs with Christ, we are to be valiant soldiers of the Cross, overcoming through Him. God is waiting for us to mature in the unity of the common faith where we share the mind of Christ. He is waiting for us to graduate under the former or "teaching" rain restored in Brother Branham's ministry. As Jesus in not physically present, God is working through the hands of His Bride.
Through the Bride, Jesus will fulfill certain work He could not complete during His earthly ministry. When Jesus stood to read the prophecy of Isaiah 62:1-2, He said, "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 brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD . . ." Stopping in the middle of the verse, He closed the scroll and, passing it back to the minister, sat down. With the eyes of the congregation fixed on Him, He said, "This day is this Scripture fulfilled in your eyes." It was too, except for the words after the comma. But in these last days the Spirit of the Lord came upon His servant William Branham to preach, ". . . the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn."
Christ's mediation for ignorance of the Word ceased once He opened the Seven Seals and revealed them through His prophet. Since we now have the fullness of the Word, PART-Word is no longer received of God (I Corinthians 13:10). Brother Branham's ministry indicted the world church systems and is the "Shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 that awoke the wise and foolish virgin, calling them out from Romanism and Protestantism into Christ (Matthew 25:6; II Thessalonians 2:1; Revelation 18:4). The "Voice of the Archangel" is Christ speaking in the heart of the Bride, placing the Message from Genesis to Revelation to bring her into maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. Whilst the "Trump" will mark the end of the Gentile dispensation and "the day of vengeance of our God" when 144,000 elect Israelites who mourn Israel's rejection of Messiah 2,000 years ago will receive comfort in their atonement, or new birth.
The Prophet is no longer here. His Message introduced Christ, the fullness of the Word. We are to unite in perfect submission to that fullness so Christ may be seen to live in us. God will glorify His Name again -- through Christ's Bride -- during the latter or "harvest" rain in the manifestation of the Sons of God (John 12:28; Romans 8:19).
Not only will the manifestation of the Sons of God demonstrate the Bride under pre-eminence, it will build our faith for "rapturing grace" to change in the atoms. By demonstrating that it is possible, even in these times of apostacy, for a people to live above the reproach of the Word and under such pre-eminence that God will do what we speak, will be a rebuke to the Christ-rejecting world. It will be as when Jesus descended to the place of the departed and witnessed to the lost, it was He Whom the Old Testament saints had preached.
The power of the Holy Ghost Church during the time of the latter rain will cast Satan and his fallen angels out of heavenly places. Jesus said, "I give you power to cast out demons" (Matthew 10:1; Mark 3:15; 16:17). This will fulfill the vision wherein Jesus foresaw Satan, falling from heaven like lightning (Luke 10:17).
Now you know why Revelation 1:3 says, "Blessed is he who reads or even hears the Words of this prophecy." It is the revelation of God that will give you authority over the Devil. And you can see why they who would add or take from it would be cursed. It would have to be so, for who can add or take away from the perfect revelation of God and overcome the enemy? There is nothing of such prevailing power as the revelation of the Word.
Revelation 1:12-17 portrays one like the Son of God. This is a metaphor of the Bride or wise virgin drawn out of all Seven Church Ages. All God was He poured into Christ; all Christ was He poured into His Church (John 17:21-23). It is the day of the Lord, after the close of the Gentile dispensation. The Voice of God is in the Bride as the voice of many waters signify that multitude which no man can number witnessing in judgment against a Christ-rejecting world (Revelation 7:9).
As Revelation 1:12-17 signifies the Bride drawn out of all seven Church Ages, all seven Church Ages must be over (Matthew 25:1-13). "That which is perfect", Christ the fullness of the Word, is here, hence the golden girdle is about the breasts, signifies the saints are now judges (I Corinthians 13:10; 6:2-3). The example of their life and faith is a rebuke to the un-believer and make-believer.
The metaphor marks the maturity of the end-time Bride, standing in the place of Christ for the manifestation of the Sons of God. The first resurrection of the sleeping saints awaits the completion of our number and our maturity. Without us the Church Age saints cannot be glorified. The witness is the Church Age saints rejoicing in God's acceptance of us for their resurrection in glorified bodies. Soon we will be changed into glorified bodies. This will be the full adoption as before the Fall it was intended that Adam, Eve and all of Adam's race should mature into glorified form as they partook of the Tree of Life which was Christ, growing in the faith and bringing forth the fruit thereof.
Soon Christ will take His Bride Home for the Wedding Supper and plague this generation of Christ-rejectors in the Tribulation, even as He plagued Ahab and Jezebel and their generation.
When Elijah cried to the Lord that he was the only person honoring His Word, he established a type for this day where God found one man, His prophet William Branham, whom He placed in the breach at the end of the Church Ages of PART-Word and His Mediation, and the fullness of the Word and Judgment that followed the opening of the Seven Seals. Someone had to stand in that gap and explain the way into Christ WITHOUT a Mediator. That someone was William Branham.
God showed Elijah he was not the only living saint; there were seven thousand who had not bowed the knee to Baal. This remnant of Elijah's ministry types the end-time Bride called out from Rome and her harlot daughters in this day by Brother Branham's Message (I Kings 19:18; Matthew 25:6; Revelation 1:12-17; 18:4).
Elijah was caught up in the Shekinah in the form of a chariot and horses of Fire. What a man he must have been to be so honored of God. But I want you to realize that the end-time Bride of Christ -- that's you and me -- is no less worthy. We too shall be translated without death and caught up into the glory of God. Notice also that Elisha succeeded Elijah with a double portion of the Spirit. Elijah types the elect PART-Word Church with the new birth whilst Elisha types the end-time Bride with the new birth and the body change. Those who scoffed at Elisha after the Church Ages, or following Elijah's translation -- despisers of those that are good, having a form of godliness but carnal believers -- were destroyed by the spoken Word of Elisha as nominal Christians who scoff at the Bride's Ministry will be devoured by bird and beast (II Kings 2:23-24; Ezekiel 39:17-20; Revelation 19:17-18).
Brother Branham said, "Israel's history under Ahab is happening right here in America where the prophet of Malachi appears. As Israel left Egypt to worship in freedom, pushed out the natives, raised up a nation with great leaders like David etc., and then put an Ahab on the throne with a Jezebel behind him to direct, so have we done the very same in America. Our forefathers left for this land to worship and live in freedom. They pushed back the natives and took over the land. Mighty men like Washington and Lincoln were raised up but after awhile other men of such poor caliber succeeded these worthy men that soon an Ahab was set in the presidential chair with a Jezebel behind him to direct him. It is at such a time as this that the messenger of Malachi must come. Then in the latter rain will come a Mount Carmel showdown. Watch this carefully now to see it in the Word. John was the forerunner of Malachi 3. He planted the former rain and was rejected by the organizations of his day. Jesus came and had a Mount Transfiguration show down. The second forerunner of Christ will sow for the latter rain. Jesus will be the showdown between the denominations and creeds, for He will come to back up His Word and take His bride in the rapture. The first showdown was Mount Carmel; the second was the Mount Transfiguration, and the third will be Mount Zion" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, 174:2).
In I Kings 18, Elijah stood alone upon the Word against Ahab and the denominational worshipers of his day. God answered by Fire from heaven and Elijah slew all of their false prophets (I Kings 18; Revelation 19:20). In the antitype, the true Church will stand alone on the Word against governments and the Jezebel religion during the "squeeze" in the latter rain after Los Angeles sinks. Christ will come in power to manifest His Word in the "third pull" of the Bride.
The second showdown was on Mount Transfiguration. Jesus showed Peter, James and John a preview of His return to earth for the Millennium with the resurrected and translated saints, represented by Moses and Elijah, forerun by an end-time Elijah to we Gentiles, the late William Branham, who "restores all things spoken by the mouth of all God's holy prophets since the world began". That was the fullness of the Word Which is Christ. It was restored in 1963 by the opening of the Seals. The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in Word form.
After the opening of the Seals, Christ's Mediation for PART-Word was done away and we no longer look to men as the three disciples looked to Moses and Elijah (Matthew 17:1-4). Our Church Age messengers had only "that which was in part". We look away from Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Luther, Wesley and Branham to "that which is perfect", Christ, the fullness of the Word (I Corinthians 13:10).
Our Mount Transfiguration showdown was the Coming of the Son of Man or "parousia" of Christ. The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Him back to earth in Word form to incarnate His Bride for the manifestation of the Sons of God or second wave offering that will call the resurrection.
The third showdown will be the Mount Zion rapture, and the glory of the body change or translation of the living Bride (Joel 2:32). God keeps all of His promises. If you have partaken the hidden manna, you have received the white stone of acceptance and know with perfect realization the Name within that stone. You know Who you are. nl137.htm
