Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Christ's mediation ended and the PART-Word divisions of the Body were sealed in 1963 with the close of the Laodicean Church Age. Those predestinated to be Christ's end-time Bride were without a Mediator, and the revelations delivered to the Church Age saints could not be baptize them into the perfection of the capstone which completes the Body for great Home-coming.
In Revelation 4 and 5 where our Kinsman Redeemer opened the Book and loosed the Seven Seals the world entered God's judgment. Christ descended with the open Book in Revelation 10, placing judgment on Roman Catholicism, the beast from the sea, and on apostate Protestantism, the beast from the earth. We were faced with an impassable breach until He revealed the mysteries of the Seven Seals to the seventh angel who stood in the breach and revealed them to His end-time Bride, obviating the need for a Mediator and enabling us to cross the chasm as Sons of God.
In this issue we complete our study on the breach, having laid the groundwork for the revelation of the Seven Seals Jesus gave to His Prophet William Branham.
Please confirm these teachings personally in your own Bible so that your understanding comes from your Brother Jesus Christ, and not your brother . . . Anthony Grigor-Scott.
US Special Forces in Iraq?

Did NORAD send the "Suicide" Jets? -- Parts I & II
Six weeks after General Myers claimed NORAD didn't know what to launch, the NORAD commander, General Eberhart appeared before this Committee and said NORAD practiced its hijacking routines "day in and day out." By the context of his remarks, it is very clear that he is talking about NORAD practices prior to September 11, 2001.

Why is there a War in Afghanistan?
John McMurtry Phd, FRSC
As earth events interfere in resistance to the unaccountable world rule, military and police links are forged on the very sites of any resistance, constructing and exploiting the new Enemy to justify the sweeping new powers of coercion and terror which the global corporate system requires to rule an unwilling world. As in all protection rackets by terror and financial manipulation, the greatest threat to life comes from the very system of armed force, surveillance and attack which is said to be protecting citizens from it -- conceptualised by presidential proclamation after September 11 as one in which all "in every region -- are for us, or are with the terrorists," US Trade Representative, Robert Zoellick then explained this meaning to include those protesting against the WTO. "This President and this administration will fight for open markets. We will not be intimidated by those who have taken to the streets to blame trade - and America - for the world's ills".

Mexicans Expose Pearl: Jews Scurry to Cover Facts
Los Angeles, (ACN) February 22, 2002 -- This Mexican newspaper has just learned that the assassinated Wall Street Journalist, Jewist Daniel Pearl, was a citizen of Israel with close ties to the Zionist government.
He was a frequent visitor to Israel and would stay with his grandmother who lives in Tel Aviv, the city where the headquarters of the Israeli intelligence agency, the MOSSAD, are located.
Mr. Pearl was also a dual citizen of the United States, as are a large majority of American Jews who show no allegiance to anyone but themselves. . . .
The Islamic Fundamentalists in Pakistan who first kidnapped Mr. Pearl have proved that the journalist was actually a CIA/MOSSAD operative his utilizing Wall Street Journalist credentials as a cover. The all-Jew Wall Street Journal publication has denied the charges. Danny Pearl was in Pakistan looking for information on the al Qaida network. It appears he was lured into a trap when the kidnappers offered information to any Jew Mossad agents. Only one Jew showed up: Danny Pearl.
Footnote: It has been revealed by the Israeli press that the late "American" journalist Daniel Pearl was an Israeli citizen. The American press knew the truth, but kept the news secret at the request of Pearl's family. See Mark Bruzonsky's "Pearl was Israeli Citizen," February 23, 2002. Bruzonsky cites Ha'aretz.

Christians Arrested by Zimbabwe Police
Bulawayo, February 16, 2002 -- Eleven Christians, including four pastors were arrested by the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) in Bulawayo. The Pastors were organising an interdenominational prayer meeting -- praying for peace during the run up to next month's elections. The 16th February was the 2nd anniversary of the start of the state orchestrated farm invasions.
Those who want to send messages of solidarity and support to a brave Zimbabwean pastor who has written an open letter calling on one-time Roman Catholic altar boy, now multi-billionaire, President Robert Mugabe to repent, may e-mail Dr. Derek Carlsen, Reason of Hope Ministries, firstname.lastname@example.org
Unity: A One World Religion?
In light of the ties between nearly all Christian "evangelicals" with Rev. Moon, the CIA, the Council for Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Bush family and Bush Sr's "New World Order," is it any wonder that after the September 11th tragedy, Billy Graham prayed in the name of God, AND ALLAH, as dignitaries from many faiths (sic) were gathered before him? This prayer was broadcast the world over. His call was for religious cooperation and 'unity of all faiths,' the trump of Rev. Moon.
Franklin Graham's (son of world renowned evangelist Rev. Billy Graham, and heir to the lucrative and influential Billy Graham Evangelistic Ministries) answer to a question by NBC's Tom Brokaw, . . "it's very important that all the faiths, (sic) all the denominations are coming together, cooperating together, working together; it is a wonderful testimony to the spirit of America, and the dedication of the American people."

Seismic Window of February 24-March 3, 2002
The highest ocean tides until December will occur on February 26-27 (8.1' range at the Golden Gate; 14.4' in Puget Sound on February 27th).
The astronomical tidal effects on the Earth's crust will be even more stressful because of the full Moon on February 27th, the closest perigee of the year only 11 hours later, and the fact that we are less than two months after perihelion (the closest separation of the Earth and Sun).
At this month's perigee the Moon will be only 221,633 miles from the Earth (center to center) and this will be within 200 miles of the closest possible distance.
Based upon these factors I am predicting, with 80% confidence for the Seismic Window of February 24-March 3, 2002 there will be:
(1) 3.5-6.0M quake within 140 miles (2 degrees) of Mt. Diablo, east of San Francisco Bay;
(2) 3.5-6.0M quake within 140 miles of Los Angeles (34N; 118W);
(3) 3.0-5.5M quake within 140 miles of Seattle, WA;
(4) major (7+M) earthquake globally, probably within the Pacific Ring of Fire where about 80% of strong quakes are located each year. Full story: syzygyjob.org Moon
Who was the Angel that Spoke with John?
This question was asked by a subscriber. Our recent Newsletters have shown how the one man to whom Jesus revealed the Seven Seals, and who in turn revealed them to John, was the angel to the seventh Church Age. His ministry which may be traced from Revelation 1:1 to Revelation 22:21 was to the end-time Bride (typed by John).
We know he was the prophet to we Gentiles in the END-time (Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:6) because even Jesus could not open the sealed Book until the Laodicean Church Age and redemption were over (Revelation 5:8-14; 10:4; Daniel 12:4,9). "Judgment was set, and the books were opened" in 1963 after Christ had fulfilled His mediatorial Office as Son of God. Then as Son of Man He claimed the Book, loosed the Seven Seals, and became Judge (Daniel 7:10 John 5:27; Revelation 20:4).
Christ appeared in the brightness of this revelation after the close of Laodicea when people "turned away their ears from the truth unto fables." The angel revealed Him to the end-time Bride through the revelation of the Seven Seals, which judge between the living and the dead by showing "who" is in the Lamb's Book of Life, and "how" they were redeemed in each age (II Timothy 4:1-8; Revelation 4-5; 10; 18:4; Ephesians 4:30). The name of this angel or messenger was William Branham (1909-1965).
The Breach Between the Church Ages and the Seals
Part III -- Crossing the Chasm as Sons of God
Jeremiah 32:6-15, "The Word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying, Your cousin Hanameel the son of Shallum shall soon ask you to buy his field in Anathoth: for the right of redemption is yours".
"So he came as the Lord had said, and visited me in the court of the prison and said: Buy my field in Anathoth, in the land of Benjamin: for the right of inheritance is yours, and the redemption is yours; buy it for yourself. Then I knew that this was the Word of the LORD".
"So I bought the field, and paid him seventeen shekels of silver. I signed and sealed the deed of purchase before witnesses, and weighed him the money in the balances. Then I took the sealed deed of purchase, and also the unsealed duplicate according to the law and custom, and I gave the evidence of the purchase to Baruch (the son of Neriah, the son of Maaseiah), in the sight of Hanameel and the witnesses who had signed the deed, and the Judeans in the court of the prison. And as they all listened I instructed Baruch saying, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; take these evidences of the purchase, both the sealed deed and the copy, and put them into an earthenware vessel, that they may be preserved for a long time. For thus saith the Lord of hosts, these papers will one day be valuable; houses and fields and vineyards shall be possessed again in this land."
The property of a Hebrew in Israel could not be mortgaged any longer than fifty years. When the trumpet of the jubilee sounded in the forty-ninth year, it was to be returned to the original owner and Hebrew slaves were to be manumitted.
From the day of Calvary when our Kinsman Redeemer was crucified until the day of His ascension, redemption was in dispute, for Satan's children denied the resurrection and initiated rumors that His disciples had stolen His body. But on the jubilee or fiftieth day, the Owner returned with the Evidence that He had indeed risen, cleansed the heavenly temple of the accumulated sins of the Old Testament saints and set the captives free, redeemed Israel, and purchased His Gentile Bride. Redemption could be disputed no longer. Organization had lost its hold over the elect who received the Holy Ghost as the earnest of their own resurrection with the power that had been lost since the garden of Eden.
Jesus has four redemption claims. As the Son of David He is heir to the throne (II Samuel 7:16; Matthew 1:1; Romans 1:3; Revelation 22:16). As the Son of Abraham He is heir to the royal grant (Matthew 1:1; Acts 3:25; Galatians 3:16; Hebrews 2:16). As Son of man He is heir to the Earth (Genesis 1:28; Acts 7:56; Revelation 10:1). And as Son of God He is heir to all things (Matthew 2:15; Acts 9:20; Hebrews 4:14). When Jesus performed His duty as Adam's Kinsman Redeemer He purchased the rights to all Adam had lost plus eternal Life, and on the day of Pentecost He passed His own Life back to His elect, dividing It by the baptism with the sevenfold Spirit or new birth into seven dispensations of PART-Word.
The New Testament saints are joint heirs with our Brother Jesus and have inherited everything He is. Like Jeremiah's deed, our Title Deed to redemption was sealed and preserved until the end of Laodicea in earthen vessels of the Body of Christ, which was the Church Age saints, because the Church and its possessions were going into Roman Captivity as Jeremiah's estate was going into Babylonian captivity. His scroll was kept in an earthen vessel as the power of God and the secret of redemption was preserved by revelation in the hearts of the saints.
The Book of our redemption was a roll or scroll of seven leaves. Each parchment was first written on the inside, and when that was filled with writing, the outside or back part was written upon. Each leaf was successively rolled over its predecessors and sealed on its ends, holding together the edges of a number of revolutions of the parchment, commencing with the first Seal, so that all seven Seals were visible.
In unrolling and revealing the mystery of the Seven Seals, the Seventh Seal, that nearest the circumference, would be the first to be broken, and so-on toward the center. Every time a Seal was opened there was the Voice of thunder, but as Brother Branham explained, "here is seven straight thunders, right in a row: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, that perfect number. Seven Thunders in a row uttered. . . Heavens couldn't write That. Heavens can't know about It, nothing else, because there's nothing going on. It was a relaxing time" (William Branham, The Revelation of the Seven Seals, 558:1).
The Seventh unwritten Seal (Revelation 8:1) is the spoken Word of the Prophet Brother Branham revealing the mystery of the previous six written Seals (Revelation 6:1-17). The Seventh Seal and all previous Seals had to be broken before the revelation of the First Seal could be expounded, hence the seven continuous thunders or Voices of God could only sound in the end-time (Revelation 10:3-4).
The "end-time" began when redemption is over. Christ's Mediation was fulfilled because the saints predestinated to the Church Ages of PART-Word were all born-again (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4,7; 4-5). The Church was finished. In Revelation 5 our Kinsman Redeemer claimed the Title Deed from Him that sat upon the throne, opened the Seven Seals and in Revelation 10:1 Christ returns as Judge with the Book open.
The revelation of the Seven Thunders disclosed who was sealed in that earthen vessel of the PART-Word body of the Church Age saints, and how they were redeemed in each Age. The ministry of the seventh angel gathered up these mysteries, and endued by the fullness of the Spirit, which was the "Elijah" of this day, introduced the fullness of the Word, which is Christ Himself.
In Revelation 5:8-14 (Daniel 7:13-14) we hear every creature that is redeemed, both the living and the dead, worship our Kinsman Redeemer, crowning Him King of kings and Lord of lords because redemption is ready to be revealed.
Now that we can see our Pentecostal Jubilee, the end of the Gentile dispensation and our full redemption are imminent. Since the revelation of the Seven Seals we no longer strive to work out the meaning of God's Word and whether we are in the faith or if some denomination is closer to the truth. We are secure in Christ -- not by loyalty to an organization or psychology but because "the mystery of God is finished" -- we have THUS SAITH THE LORD.
Ephesians 4:30 says, "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby you are sealed unto the day of redemption." In other words, take care not to grieve the Holy Spirit until the Book of Redemption is revealed and the Redeemer comes to claim His possession. How are we going to grieve the Spirit on this side of the chasm where we have the perfect interpretation of the Word? Since the apostolic faith is restored we know which Scriptures have been fulfilled and when, and what Jesus is doing NOW. Therefore we recognize our part of the Word and can identify our position in the Body from Genesis to Revelation. And if we can see that part of the Word living through us we know we are redeemed and "should no longer doubt our sinlessness" (Matthew 24:24; John 10:1-5; Romans 8:33; Hebrews 10:2; I John 3:9; 5:18).
The Gentile religious systems today are as sceptical of the second or "parousia" Coming of our Lord in WORD form by revelation of the Seven Seals as Hanameel was doubtful of Judah's return from Babylon, and as Israel's organized religions that disputed His resurrection. And they have initiated the same foolish rumors about William Branham and his prophesies today. Soon there will be an earthquake, and like Esau, the scoffers will have come to a time of no more repentance. God will manifest the Sons of God, but His power in them will not be a public show as It was in the ministry of Brother Branham. It will be all over for the public. It will be to vindicate to the Bride that she can do the "greater works".
James said, "Faith without works is dead". Soon this "classroom theory" you are now reading and confirming in your own Bible will be practically applied to produce faith that will command the sword of the Word under pre-eminence for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation of our own bodies.
When Laodicea was over and the elders advertised for a Kinsman Redeemer to claim the Title Deed, open the Scroll of Redemption and loose the Seven Seals that have bound its mysteries, John wept because no man who ever had lived was found worthy and the whole creation seemed doomed. Then one of the elders announced that the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the root of David has proven worthy to claim His right and is qualified to open the Scroll and loose its Seven Seals. But instead of a Lion John saw a bloody Lamb, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven portions of the Spirit of God sent far and wide throughout all the Earth calling Christ's Gentile Bride throughout the Seven Church Ages of PART-Word (Revelation 5:2-6).
The seven horns represent the seven Church Ages and the seven eyes are the seven angels or messengers who were each anointed with a portion of the Spirit to preach the Word for their day that would baptize the predestinated into the Body in their Age.
Zechariah saw the same vision of Christ and the Bride of all Ages represented by God's second Bible, the Great Pyramid capped by the manifestation of the unwritten Seventh Seal. The Seventh Seal is the spoken Word of Brother Branham's Message which when written in the heart of the end-time Bride finishes the Pyramid of New Jerusalem, and calls Daniel's Seventieth Week.
Zechariah 3:8-9, "Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, you, and your colleagues who usually sit before you: for they are types of things to come: for, behold, I will bring forth My Servant the Branch" (Isaiah 4:2; Jeremiah 23:5; 33:15; Zechariah 6:12). "For behold upon the stone that I have laid before Joshua shall be seven eyes: I will engrave Its inscription upon it, says the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of this land in one day".
This assurance was given to Joshua, Judah's high priest, to encourage him in the rebuilding of the temple following the return of the first band of exiles from Babylon. However, God's Temple will not be built by the might and power of men, but by His Spirit and grace. God's Temple will be Christ and His Bride. Israel will see It by faith when the revelation of the Old and New Covenants is expounded by the two witnesses of Revelation 11 (Zechariah 4:1-14). The "parousia" of Christ and His Bride, Israel's King and Queen, will "remove the iniquity of their land in one day" by the regeneration of their 144,000 elect (Isaiah 66:8; Daniel 9:24).
Zechariah 14:7, 10, "Who are you, O great mountain? before Zerubabel you shall become a plain: and he shall bring forth the Headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it. . . For who has despised humble beginnings? for they shall rejoice, to see the work begin, to see the plumbline in the hand of Zerubabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth".
God hides in simplicity and is revealed in humility. Israel had a zeal for God but their eyes were on the work of their own hands and they failed to recognize these natural things were but shadows and types cast by the Supernatural substance and reality of "the creation of God" in Jesus Christ and the redeemed of all ages.
Having described the House of Judah in Ezekiel 17:22-24 as a strong and lofty cedar, which had been plucked up by the roots and left to wither and die, the Lord declares that He will take from its summit a slender twig, and plant it on the mountain of the height of Israel, where the little offspring shall take root, and grow, and spread, until it commands universal admiration. Every tree of the field shall acknowledge its superiority, and every fowl of heaven seek its shelter.
That slender Twig was planted on Calvary. This is another metaphor for the single stone of Christ and His Bride of all ages that will be laid before Israel in the time of Christ's "parousia" the 144,000.
Redemption was over with the taking of the Book. Now Christ descends "with a shout, with the Voice of the Archangel, and with the Trump of God" to call His end-time Bride over the breach into the capstone. Those who fail to hear and heed His Voice will be caught in an unregenerated Laodicean condition.
The capstone Bride live in the dispensation of "silence in heaven about the space of half an hour," feeding our souls by the spoken Word of God John was forbidden to write prior to the days of the Voice of the seventh angel. Our individual ministry is to testify the PRESENT Truth to a perishing world, for the time is at hand (Revelation 10:8-11; 22:10). Although we are reading what John would have recorded had he been allowed, unless we are in the same Spirit as the Prophet, we will not understand It. But we must understand, for the Sacrifice has left, there is no more Blood; intercession for ignorance has ended and the sanctuary is smoking with the indignation of God's wrath. This is the only Message that will take us across the breach between the Church Ages and the Seals. nl214.htm
