Bible Believers' Newsletter #212
"We focus on the PRESENT Truth -- what Jesus is doing NOW . . ." ISSN 1442-8660
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. It's a great privilege for us to be gathering together again just before the "great and dreadful day of the Lord."
"The rulers of the darkness of this world" have certainly made that darkness visible within the veil of the sin curtain over the sham democracies of the apostate West. So look up little Bride, and keep the Token on display for your full redemption draws nigh.
This week we will show how Boaz types Jesus Christ, our Kinsman Redeemer, and how after the end of the Laodicean Church Age which completed His mediatorial Office, He testified before the elders in Heaven's Gate that He has purchased Israel's inheritance, all Adam lost, and His beloved Gentile Bride. Since the revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963 He has been calling to her, "Come out of Babylon: cross the breach between the Church Ages and the Seals into the Capstone for the eternal Land of the Millennium."
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 should be confirmed personally in your own Bible. . . Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony
Did NORAD send the 'Suicide' Jets on 9/11?
NORAD trigger men, traitors,may have guided the 'suicide jets' on September 11. The dog we bought to guard the hen house may well have taken the day off and killed the chickens.
NORAD (the North American Air Defense Command) had at its disposal a number of US Air Force General Dynamics F-106 Delta Dart fighter aircraft configured to be remotely flown into combat as early as 1959 under the auspices of a program known as SAGE. These aircraft could be started, taxied, taken off, flown into combat, fight, and return to a landing entirely by remote control, with the only human intervention needed being to fuel and re-arm them.

Muslims Boycott Holocaust Day in UK
Teheran January 27, 2002 -- For the second successive year, the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) has rejected an invitation from the government to attend its Holocaust Memorial Day . . . because it excludes the ongoing Israeli genocide of Palestinians.
"Genocide is the most abhorrent and outrageous crime against humanity and we are not going to prevent it by selectively remembering only some of its victims," MCB Secretary -- General Yousuf Bhaliok said.
Referring in particular to the ongoing Israeli massacre of Palestinians, he warned that the suffering of Jews during World War II "must not blind us to the suffering of others, nor should it be cause or justification for one group to oppress another." The national ceremony in London is the second since the British government accepted holding a Holocaust Memorial Day last year after campaigning by Jewish and Zionist lobbies.
The first ceremony also included references to the ethnic cleansing in Bosnia, Cambodia and Rwanda. But like this year's event, no mention was made of the ongoing Israeli genocide in the occupied territories. Full story: middleeastwire.com
Orthodox Jews Call for Dismantling of Israel
Washington DC, February 6, 2002 -- Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss spokesman of Neturei Karta International, a world wide movement of anti-Zionist Jews, announced that a delegation of Rabbis will be joining the "Coalition of Arab-American, Muslim Organizations" in protest against the Zionist State.
"It is high, time that the Jewish people realize that which our sages and the vast majority of Jewry understood when Zionism began a little over a century ago, that Zionism is a movement of profound danger to the Jewish people."
"Hasn't enough blood been spilled, both Jewish and Palestinian? Isn't it time to rethink the entire Zionist enterprise?"
Rabbi Weiss noted that the message his group will bring to Washington and the Palestinians assembled there, is the clear Talmudic prohibition of Jews over the Holy Land until their sins be expiated in exile. Violation of the terms of Jewish exile has caused much suffering for all parties in the Middle East. "It is high time to dismantle the Israeli state. It is a blemish on the Jewish people. All mankind is told by the state's representatives, that Israel represents Jewry. This is utter nonsense. Heretics cannot represent the Torah people. Those guilty of massive cruelty towards the Palestinians cannot represent a merciful people."
"The task of the Jewish people is to devote itself to Torah and God's service. We are called upon by our Creator to remain loyal to the countries of our exile and to pursue good will towards all men. Zionism is an evil distraction which lures its victims into endless conflict with other peoples."
"Today we have joined with the Palestinian people in a show of sympathy for their suffering. Prime Minister Sharon's presence today in Washington, is an affront to believing Jews and suffering Palestinians."
"May we all be worthy of seeing the day when the state of Israel will be no more, the Palestinians will be relieved of their suffering. And the wayward Jews will return to their brethren in the true service of God. The day when all nations will recognize the One God and then, we will all serve Him together peacefully."

US Paid-off Warlords
Peshawar, February 7, 2002 -- Dozens of Afghan warlords were given $200,000 payments and satellite phones to secure their cooperation in the war against the Taliban and its al Qaeda allies, according to bankers, money changers and others close to the transactions.
More than 35 local commanders made banking transactions involving identical $200,000 sums late last year, in at least some cases after meetings with US officials. Transactions totalled more than $7 million and helped prompt a spending spree on four-wheel-drive vehicles in Pakistan.
The gifts of satellite telephones to the tribal commanders, whose efforts proved crucial to driving Taliban forces from southern and eastern Afghanistan, has been well-publicized in the region, but the cash payments have not.
"If we had only given them satellite phones and no money they would have had no reason to speak with us and probably would have sold the sat-phones," the US Army officer said. Full story: washtimes.com
Still Waiting for the Big One on the Mississippi
Missouri, February 9, 2002 -- Nothing happened in a small town on the Mississippi River 10 years ago. They were expecting an earthquake. . .The object of concern was a predicted replay of a series of stupendously violent earthquakes that took place during the winter of 1811-1812 along the New Madrid Fault, an ancient 150-mile underground scar that runs from Arkansas to southern Illinois. Estimated at least 8.0 on the Richter scale, the quakes were felt all the way from the Rocky Mountains in the west to the eastern seaboard, and from Quebec to Cuba. They briefly reversed the flow of the Mississippi River, created a number of lakes, and rang church bells in Boston. The earth shook so noticeably in Washington, D.C., that President James Madison and his wife Dolly thought the White House was being burglarized.
. . . Experts say a somewhat smaller earthquake . . . (but still very strong) is a virtual certainty at any time now. . . it's likely to cause far greater loss of life and property than the mega-quakes 189 years ago. "A magnitude 6 earthquake is thought to be long overdue." Such an earthquake would wreak havoc in large population centers that did not exist 189 years ago, including Memphis, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Paducah, Kentucky, and Evansville, Indiana. "There would be damage in 15 to 20 states in such an event, and many fatalities . . . Bridges would collapse, hazardous materials stored up and down the river could be released, and there would be fires." . .
Brother Branham said: "The world is falling apart. Fifteen hundred mile chunk of it, three or four hundred miles wide, will sink hundred or maybe forty miles down into that great fault out yonder one of these days, and waves will shoot plumb out to the state of Kentucky. And when it does, it'll shake the world so hard that everything on top of it will shake down" (William Branham, A Thinking Man's Filter, p 25:145).

The Breach Between the Church Ages and the Seals
Part I -- The Kinsman Redeemer
Abraham was a Gentile descended from Shem of the city of Ur of the Chaldeans, a center of Moon worship in southern Babylonia. Babel was founded by Bel who was called Hermes which means "the son of Ham." According to history, Hermes was the great prophet of idolatry, the interpreter of the gods. The Chaldeans were called Sabeans, from 'saba' "the heavenly hosts," and worshipped Bel, the planet Jupiter, Nebo, Mercury, etc., (Job 31:26-27; Acts 14:11-18). Islam, whose followers worship Allah the Moon god, is their successor. Ur was the departure point for the Abraham's migration to Mesopotamia and Canaan.
Genesis 17:1-7, "When Abram was ninety-nine years of age, God appeared to him and said, I am the Almighty God; walk before Me and be perfect. And I will make a covenant between us, and will multiply you exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face: and God said, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations so I am changing your name. No longer will you be called Abram ("Exalted Father"), but Abraham ("Father of Goiim"); for a father of many nations have I made you. I will give you millions of descendants who will constitute many nations, and kings shall descend from you. And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your seed after you in their days for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto you, and to your seed after you".
Abraham was a Gentile to whom God gave the seal of the covenant when he was yet uncircumcised, and he is "the father of circumcision (i.e. separation from the world and the nature of a carnal birth -- to the Word in newness of a Life in the Spirit) to them who are not of Israel only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham which he had being yet uncircumcised. For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his (natural) seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. For if you claim that God's blessings go to natural Israel under the Law, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect" (Romans 4:1-14). And that, my precious friend, would make you Talmudic!
Abraham was the father of faith to the Gentile Church. God's Promise to Abraham and his seed preceded Israel's existence, and the Law was given to his natural seed because of their unbelief in God's Word. Today, only an Edomite could wish to impersonate the nation of Israel which has been blinded and excluded from God's Kingdom for 2,000 years.
Forget the foolish superstitions those non-Semitic anti-Semitic self-styled "Jews" claim for themselves. They have no claims to Adam's inheritance, let alone God's promise to Abraham. When God recognized Abram's faith, He renamed him Abraham which means "father of the Gentiles," "Father of many nations," or Goiim.
Galatians 3:16, 27, 29, "Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He said not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of One, And to your Seed, which is Christ. If you have been baptized into Christ (or born-again), you are Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise".
Let us be Spiritual and not suppose that God's promise to Abraham may be inherited through the happenstance or lust of a sexual birth. That's carnal thinking. It matters not whether you spring from Shem, Ham, or Japheth their elder, so long as you are born into Adam's race. God's promise to Abraham also requires a Spiritual birth. His promised Seed (singular) was Messiah God, the last Adam Whom Israel murdered (Matthew 27:25).
When after three days Abraham saw God substitute a ram for Isaac's life, he caught the revelation of Christ's vicarious death for Adam's seed, and His resurrection on the third day. Abraham rejoiced to see Christ's day and was glad (John 8:56; Hebrews 11:17-19). God's chosen people are Christians, not Israelites, "Jews," or denominational Babylonians (I Peter 2:9).
Israel was called to obey God as a testimony to the Gentiles that we might constitute "many nations" fathered by the faith of Abraham. When they did neither, God put Israel out of the Land of the covenant, and every Israelite outside the Promised Land is out of the covenant God made with Abraham's natural seed through Isaac and Jacob.
Israel's chastisement shall be seven times more grievous as foretold by Moses (Leviticus 26:14-46). For in the days of John Hyrcanus, Esau stole Jacob's new name and changed it from Israel to "Jew." When they usurped the Word of God by "the traditions of men," later compiled as the "Jew's" unholy 'holy book,' the Talmud, Israel rejected and killed their Messiah and King. Having shaken off Jacob's yoke, Esau stole the Promised Land in 1948, establishing the Marxist, racist State of Israel with apartheid between Hebrews who are Israelites and his strange race of Edomite self-styled "Jews" who will rule Israel until God destroys all life from the face of this earth (Genesis 27:39-41; Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17:8). But God will first sift 144,000 elect Israelites from the mixed multitude that is Edom's Israel through the great tribulation of "Jacob's trouble."
Throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ's end-time Bride. We know this is so because the Book was sealed with Seven Seals unto the time of the end when Christ would break the Seals and reveal their secrets to us by the seventh angel or prophet-messenger to the Laodicean Church Age. During his two year exile on the Isle of Patmos John saw and heard this revelation in a series of visions he recorded under Old Testament symbols (Malachi 4:5-6; Acts 3:19-23; Revelation 1:1; 3:14; 10:7).
Representing the end-time Bride called out from Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches, John foresaw in a vision the sealing of the elect 144,000 Israelites by the baptism with the Holy Ghost in the fourth year after the resurrection of the Church Age saints and our translation. He also saw their subsequent martyrdom by the Roman church, her denominational daughters and Edomite Jewish traitors. (As before the siege under Titus, 20,000 Edomites gained admittance to Jerusalem then betrayed the Hebrews, turning the city into bloodshed and rapine). How history repeats. In recent times they have betrayed Germany, America, Great Britain, all Europe (via the EEC), and China to Judaeo-Russian socialism. They have also betrayed the Balkans, Latin America, Somalia and Afghanistan. Soon Pakistan will discover she too has been betrayed.
After this revelation, John "saw a great multitude too vast to number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, standing before the Throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands, shouting with a mighty voice, saying, 'Our salvation is due to our God Who sits upon the throne, and to the Lamb'" (Revelation 7:9). This "great multitude of all nations and kindreds" (from Adam's race) is the holy offspring of Abraham's Seed Who is Christ. This is God's elect, mostly Gentile Church. This is His Bride of all ages who "are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple: (as His wife) and He Who sits on the throne shall dwell among them" (as her Husband) (Revelation 7:15).
Adam crossed from eternity into time to redeem Eve, forfeiting his domain and our inheritance to Satan. However God's law enables a near kinsman to pay the price to redeem an inheritance that has been forfeited. That kinsman must be a worthy man, prepared of his own free will, and able to meet redemption's price (Leviticus 25). But Adam's seed is "born in sin and conceived in iniquity" (Psalm 51:5) so no one was righteous and qualified to perform the duty of Kinsman Redeemer, and Adam's race was potentially lost since we were separated from God. Our only possibility for salvation and eternal Life lay in the Supernatural birth of a righteous Man.
Jesus Christ alone could redeem Adam's inheritance because He was without sin and was kin to Adam since they share the same Father!
Satan tried to cause this kinsman to disqualify Himself by unrighteousness (Matthew 4). Failing in this he sought to destroy Him on Calvary. Since Christ's resurrection Satan has toiled to deceive Adam's seed to surrender their rights through unbelief. Now in the end-time he has returned to the temptation of miscegenation with Cain's hybrid race, relying upon the cycle of birth, reproduction and death, to spoil and diminish the inheritance of Adam, and Michael Who is Christ.
The procedure for redemption under to the law of the Kinsman Redeemer is seen in the Book of Ruth which tells how a certain Judahite by the name of Elimalech left Israel with his wife Naomi and their two sons during a time of famine to stay in the land of Moab. The narrative is also an allegory and type of Israel, of Christ, and God's "chosen people" -- the Bride of Christ.
Elimalech died; his sons married Moabite women, and they also died. When conditions in Israel improved, Naomi ventured to return although the bankers had foreclosed on her husband's fields. And because she had no more sons to raise seed in Levirate marriage with her daughters-in-law to continue her husband's name she encouraged them both to remain in their homeland with their own gods where they might find new husbands.
One daughter-in-law, Orpah, returned to her own people. But Ruth, with a revelation of the one true God, said, "Entreat me not to leave you, or to return from following after you: for whither you go, I will go; and where you lodge, I will lodge: your people shall be my people, and your God my God: where you die will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part you and me" (Ruth 1:16-17). Like Joseph, Ruth knew that the covenant, and therefore the resurrection of the righteous Israelites who are under the covenant of Abraham, is to this very day in effect ONLY in the Promised Land. And the Christian's new birth and therefore the resurrection lies only in the Word for HIS day.
Naomi types Israel who rejected Messiah and their covenant. During the Gentile dispensation Israel was blinded under their apostate religion by a famine for the Word since God had turned to we Gentiles. Like Naomi and her family, Israel left the Land in a time of distress and stayed away in order to save themselves from participating in its misery. But in the stranger's land a harder fate befalls when spiritual death smites them for when they forsook the Land they also turned their backs on the covenant and God.
Ruth types the Gentile Bride of all ages. Her clear-cut decision to follow the one true God types the Christian's revelation of Justification by grace through faith (Ruth 1:6-18).
The pair returned to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley season, the place and the time of Christ's birth. At Bethlehem no one helps or comforts Naomi. Ruth alone becomes her support. She labors, she begs for her. Her piety, however, does not remain unknown. When Boaz inquired after her, he realized he was her kinsman through marriage, and the reapers gave a good report. The kindnesses done to these women by Boaz, on whose fields Ruth had been gleaning after the reapers, originated solely in the man's admiration of the pious love of Ruth, although it is true he was a kinsman of Naomi.
Ruth's serving in the field was a type of the Christian's sanctification (Ruth 2:1-23). Boaz who types Jesus Christ, recognized Ruth as a virtuous woman. They were betrothed and Boaz agreed to do the duty of a kinsman redeemer and raise up children in Mahlon's name.
Ruth asked for her right when she said, "Spread your wing over thine handmaid: for you are a near kinsman" (Ruth 3:9; Deuteronomy 22:30; Ezekiel 16:8). This types the Baptism with the Holy Ghost or new birth and Ruth entered her rest (Ruth 3:1-18). But it is only on account of her love and purity that the blessing of Boaz fulfils itself.
Jesus Messiah was Israel's near Kinsman. When they had rejected redemption He cried, "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that killed the prophets, and stones all those God sends to her. How often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you would not let Me! And now your house is desolate with no Redeemer to restore the kingdom to Israel. For you shall be Spiritually blinded to your Redeemer until you shall say, Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord" (Matthew 23:37-38).
Naomi had a nearer kinsman, so Boaz gave her six measures of barley to sustain she and her mother-in-law while he went away to confront the nearer kinsman, a type of Satan, Israel's nearer kinsman, whether he will do the duty.
It was not apparent to Ruth; however Naomi realized the six measures were indicative of Boaz' faith in the success of his mission. Six signifies the six days of 1,000 years wherein man labors against sin, then seven indicates perfection and the millennium of rest. The six measures of barley type the six-days' manna with which God sustained Israel in their wilderness journey which in turn signify the Messages of PART-Word to the Church Ages wherein the saints labored to understand the import of the Seven Sealed Book. Whereas Israel rested on the sabbath and ate of the double portion of manna gathered on the sixth day, the seventh angel gathered up the fragments of all of the previous Messages documented by the great teachers of the sixth Age, and after the close of Laodicea, Christ opened the Seven Seals and the seventh unwritten Seal revealed the mysteries of the previous six written Seals. Since "that which is perfect is come" we now rest in "the true sayings of God" (Revelation 19:7-9),
Now the duty of the kinsman redeemer was to present his claim to the elders who judge in the city gate (Daniel 7:9; Matthew 19:28; Revelation 21:12-14). Boaz waited in the gate, and when the nearer kinsman passed by he advised him before ten of the judges that Naomi had returned and required a near kinsman to redeem her husband's field.
Once the kinsman had agreed to redeem the field for Naomi, Boaz informed him that he must also redeem it for Ruth and take her in Levirate marriage to raise up seed to inherit her husband's inheritance and continue his name. The kinsman protested that he could not redeem it for he would mar his own inheritance. He was prepared to redeem the field for a widow whose sons were deceased, for upon her demise the land would be his and his heirs, but he would not raise a child to inherit the property in the name of his dead relative. Perhaps he was guided more by superstition and selfishness than by love, and was not willing to endanger his own family and inheritance as Elimalech in emigrating to Moab, and Mahlon and Chilion, in marrying Moabite women, had already extinguished one family in Israel.
Can you see the type? Jesus could lay down His life, and since He was without sin He could take it up again. Jesus was worthy, able and willing to pay sin's price to redeem Israel in order to marry the Gentile Bride whom He loved. But Satan could not redeem Ruth and raise children by her in the name of her deceased husband, for in the Jubilee after the Gentile dispensation when God restores the kingdom to Israel, the inheritance would return to his relative's family.
The kinsman signified the renunciation of his right by removing his own shoe and giving it to Boaz as was the custom concerning redeeming and transfer.
The shoe is the symbol of motion and wandering (Exodus 12:11; Deuteronomy 29:5), and of rest and possession (Luke 15:22; Ephesians 6:15). With the shoe one trod the earth, whence on holy ground it must be removed (Joshua 5:15); and since one had complete control over it, the shoe symbolized the power of the possessor over his possession. In Psalms 60:8 and 108:9, God casts his shoe over Edom signifying He will possess and take dominion over that land.
The shoe symbolized a possession which one actually had, and could tread with his feet, at pleasure (Deuteronomy 11:24). Whoever entered into this possession conjointly with another, put his foot into the same shoe, as was done in old German law by an adopted child and the wife. Hence, when the goel pulled off his shoe and gave it to Boaz, he therewith renounced all claims to the right of possession which would have been his had he fulfilled its conditions.
Ruth 4:9-11, "And Boaz said to the elders, and to all the people, 'You are witnesses this day, that I have bought all that was Elimelech's, and all that was Chilion's and Mahlon's, from Naomi. Moreover Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of Mahlon, have I purchased to be my wife, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, that the name of the dead be not cut off from among his brethren, and from the gate of his place: you are witnesses this day.' And all the people that were in the gate, and the elders, said, 'We are witnesses'."
As Boaz had to redeem Naomi in order to marry his Gentile Bride. Jesus came to redeem His Own. And when He had redeemed Israel, He got the Gentile Bride
Naomi's sorrow is at last lifted away when Boaz fulfils to Ruth the law of the kinsman redeemer and marries her. From the Moabitess springs the son, of whom David, the king of Israel, who rose from among the flocks of Bethlehem to be a hero and a prophet, is the celebrated grandson whose greater Son is our Lord Jesus Christ (Ruth 4:13-22; Matthew 1:5; Luke 3:32). We further note that the mother of Boaz was Rahab, another Gentile, the harlot of Jericho and hero of faith. Joshua 6:17 and James 2:25-26 witness how Rahab demonstrated her faith by her works, and was thereby justified.
Four stages in Ruth's life: Ruth deciding, Ruth serving, Ruth resting, and Ruth rewarded type the elect Church. These four stages type the journey of the Gentile Church which is born again under the first four Seals.
Ruth deciding to follow the one true God was justified by grace through faith. This represents the First Seal (Revelation 6:1-2) which was introduced by the living creature with the face of a Lion. Under this Seal Satan rode forth on a white horse impersonating Christ, usurping spiritual power (Matthew 24:4-5) by "the deeds of the nicolaitanes" (Revelation 2:6), and instituting a clerical hierarchy between God and men. Next, like Balaam, he substituted man-made teachings for the Word of God, and then organized the Roman Catholic false church where the deeds of the nicolaitanes were instituted as doctrine (Revelation 2:14-15). The original apostolic saints and those of the Ephesian, Smyrnean and Pergamean Ages were all born-again under the First Seal.
We may also type Ruth's deciding with the Sardis Church Age (1520-1750) whose angel, Martin Luther, restored the foundational truth of justification by grace through faith. The Lutheran, Congregational, Anglican/Episcopalian, and Presbyterian churches are the most notable impersonators of the Sardis Age today.
Ruth serving behind the reapers was feeding her soul on the revealed Word for her hour. The reapers are the angels or portions of the Spirit that anointed each of the seven Church Age messengers (Matthew 13:39), and Ruth was sanctified by the Word of their ministry. This stage represents the Second Seal (Revelation 6:3-4) which was introduced by the Ox-faced creature, a beast of patient and faithful labor, but also of sacrifice. This was the Dark Ages when Satan rode his bloody red horse and slaughtered over 68 million Christians according to the martyrology of the Roman church as he gathered political power to himself (Matthew 24:6). Under this Seal the saints of the Thyatira Church Age were redeemed.
We may also type this stage with the Philadelphian Church Age (1750-1906) whose angel was John Wesley. Among the denominations impersonating the Philadelphian Age today are myriad Methodist, Wesleyan, Baptist, Brethren, Nazarine and Pilgrim Holiness.
Ruth resting, waiting for the realization of Boaz' redemption, types the baptism with the Holy Ghost which is the new birth whereby we enter our rest (Matthew 11:28-27). This stage of her walk in faith represents the Third Seal (Revelation 6:5-6) where Satan rode his black horse of demon power. He filled the lunatic asylums and prisons, enraged popes and kings, unleashed the "Jew's" Illuminism, Freemasonry, revolutions, and had Karl Marx draft their Communism and Professor Baron Karl von Ritter draft plans for Nazism (Matthew 24:7). But under the anointing of the living creature with the face of a man, the smartest of all of the beasts, the spirit of God raised up a standard against the Enemy Under this Seal the saints of the Sardis and Philadelphian Church Ages were born-again.
This stage of Ruth's walk may also be typed with the Laodicean Church Age (1906-1963) where God restored the gifts of the Spirit through the revelation that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. The angel to Laodicea was the Prophet William Branham whose ministry gathered the loose ends of doctrines not fully understood by the reformers, and restored the apostolic faith. The best known churches impersonating Laodicea today are the Assemblies of God, United Pentecostal, Four Square and the Roman Catholic Charismatic Movement.
Ruth rewarded types the end-time Bride who receive the revelation of the Seven Seals of redemption through the ministry of the seventh angel after the close of the Laodicean Church Age as Ruth received the revelation of the finished work of her redemption when Boaz returned from the gate. The Seals reveal how Christ redeemed the saints in each Church Age of PART-Word, and who they were. It is essential for us to understand which Scriptures have been fulfilled already and what Jesus is doing NOW so that we do not attempt to impersonate some genuine Moves of the Spirit that are already fulfilled. We would be without excuse and could not be born-again in this day because Christ's Mediation for ignorance of the Word was fulfilled before He opened the Seven Seals.
The saints of the Laodicean Age and of the Bride's holy convocation are all Spiritually redeemed under the Fourth Seal (Revelation 6:7-8) which is nearing completion and ends the Gentile dispensation. The anointing under the Fourth Seal is represented by a living creature with the face of an Eagle. The eagle can ascend into the heavenlies and refocus his sight so that he clearly sees things far away. He doesn't scratch around the manure pile for his living like a denominational chicken, or feed on carrion from a bygone day like an organizational hawk or religious crow. He feeds on fresh-killed meat, Spiritual food in due season. The eagle represents God's prophets.
Speaking of our holy convocation Jesus said, "Wheresoever the fresh food is, there the eagles will be gathered together." The revelation of the Seven Seals after the close of Laodicea brought Christ back to earth in WORD form to incarnate His end-time Bride (I Corinthians 13:10; Acts 3:23; Revelation 10:7). Our day is typed by the fiftieth day of the Pentecostal feast of Leviticus 23 which foresaw the Holy Spirit waved again in the end-time Bride during the manifestation of the Sons of God, before the body change, represented as two loaves baked with leaven. As Ruth married Boaz, and they lived happily ever after, we meet our Bridegroom in the air and go to the Wedding Supper, while Satan, who is to be cast down to earth at the close of grace, will incarnate the pope of Rome and ride his pale horse to perdition with his followers (Matthew 24:8).
The Church is now in the fourth stage of Ruth's Spiritual walk. All the saints have been redeemed. Redemption is over. We have been rewarded by the revelation of the Seven Seals and are just waiting for Jesus to take us Home. When Christ's mediation ended at Revelation 3:22, the end-time Bride (represented by John) was caught up in the Spirit into the rapture in Revelation 4:1 to see what would take place after the Church Ages of PART-Word and intercession of Revelation 1-3 were fulfilled. Our first revelation is that grace has not yet ended and there is yet an open door in heaven, but the Mercy Seat has become a Judgment Seat (Revelation 4:5).
In Revelation 5 the elders advertised for a kinsman redeemer. Jesus, our Boaz, claimed His right of redemption: the Title Deed to everything Adam had forfeited. And opening its Seven Seals He declared the contents through His prophet. When you receive the revelation of their mystery you have found your part in the Word, your position in the Body which is your name called from the Lamb's Book of Life.
Christ returned from Heaven's Gate in 1963 with the "shout" of the Prophet's Message, calling His end-time Bride "Come out of Babylon and be filled with the Spirit" (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 10:1-7l 18:4); "the Voice of the Archangel" in the heart of the Bride to bring her to maturity in the fullness of the Word by placing the Message from Genesis to Revelation (Ephesians 4:13). And now, like Ruth we are ripening in the Son-Light waiting for the "Trumpet" to sound the resurrection of the sleeping saints, the manifestation of the sons of God, and our translation when we shall meet our glorified Boaz in person (I Thessalonians 4:16; Romans 8:19).
God promised king David He would establish his house and the throne of his kingdom for ever (II Samuel 7:11-17). But the natural seed of David's physical line ceased to have any significance following the birth of Jesus Christ Who, as Son of David, will reign through all eternity. This is attested by the genealogies of Matthew 1 and Luke 3 which end with our Lord Jesus Christ. His Royal seed is His Queen, His Church, who are a Royal Priesthood and joint heirs with Him.
There are some who actually believe in fraudulent genealogies that purport to prove the European Royal Houses are Semitic and the House of David. In reality those lineages all began in Japheth but have without exception inbred with the Venetian and Genoese oligarchies who are Khazars. A prime example is the House of Windsor who are really the House of Guelph. Through intermarriage with the seed of Cain all of these Royal Houses were long ago blotted from the Book of Life as confirmed by Revelation 17:8, 12-13.
Revelation 5:3-5, "No man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the Book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the Book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the Book, and to loose the Seven Seals thereof."
You see, Lord Jesus Christ is the root AND offspring of David (Revelation 22:16). He is the eternal God Who will have NO successors on the Throne of Israel. Adam and his future seed including any Royals not Serpent's seed, lost everything and needed redemption themselves. Only Jesus Christ could redeem them, and ALL the redeemed are Abraham's seed by the baptism with the Holy Ghost and heirs of the promise. "The Word of God is the original seed" (Luke 8:11), so the redeemed are twice born -- from Adam's physical seed, and by the spoken Word Seed of Christ.
Faith is the kernel of the kingdom of God. Not only natural, but also spiritual Israelites can become its children. The Psalms of king David unfold the relations of the Gentiles to that kingdom: Psalm 18:43, "You make me the head of the nations; a people that I knew not, serves me." Psalm 22:27-28, "All the kindreds of the nations shall worship before you; for the kingdom is the Lord's, and He is the governor among the nations". This is the same Lord described in Isaiah 9:6-7.
David's wives, his most valiant warriors and faithful servants were Gentiles. Speaking of His role as KINSMAN Redeemer David's greater Son said, "Whosoever shall do the will of My Father Who is in heaven, is My brother, and sister, and mother:" kinfolks (Matthew 12:50). That places the elect of Adam's race, whatever their nationality, color, gender or station in life, on equal footing with the virgin Mary, Peter and Paul, and has nothing whatever to do with being an Israelite. nl212.htm
