Bible Believers' Newsletter #254
"We focus on the PRESENT Truth -- what Jesus is doing NOW . . ."
End-time greetings in the wonderful Name of our Lord Jesus Christ as we witness the US begin "exercising all the power of Imperial Rome, and cause the whole earth to worship her false religion" (Revelation 13:12).
Western corporate and national interests have kept Islam boxed into a political corner since the end of the colonial period -- a third world religion of marginalized nations, of wealthy elites, brutal dictators, and mainly crushingly poor commoners (Salman Rushdie). While the masses of Judeo-Christians are herded by their pulpit-pounding crypto-rabbis, inciting hatred against Muslims and Islam, into the delusion that George W. Bush is the paladin of Christendom and goodness, and Islamic resistance to his evil is the paradigm of deviltry and darkness (Michael Hoffman III).
The Moscow Times has identified the attributes of "the beast from the earth". "A country whose leader has the power to imprison any citizen, on his order alone, and hold them indefinitely, in military custody, without access to the courts, without a lawyer, without any charges, their fate determined solely by the leader's arbitrary whim -- that country is a tyranny, not a democracy, not a republic, not a union of free citizens".
"Now, it may be that it is still a tyranny in utero, a rough beast slouching toward Bethlehem -- or in this case, Washington -- to be born, and not yet the full-blown monster, fangs bared and back plated with bristling armored scales. But the tyranny has been conceived, it's taken root in the womb, gained definite form and is clawing, tearing its way toward the light".
As for the UN Weapons inspection in Iraq, the words of John Dryden apply:
Thus in a pageant show a plot is made
And peace itself is war in masquerade.
Or as Stalin once said, "A diplomat's words must contradict his deeds -- otherwise, what sort of a diplomat is he?"
The Zionist and Judaeo-Christian drums of war are sounding. That old "Jewish" traitor, Sir Winston Churchill, is on the air once again as is the betrayed "Jew" Adolf Hitler, while that treacherous hofjuden and servant of the 'City of London,' Sir Henry Kissinger, is in charge of investigations into the WTC plot. Set a thief to catch a thief. Meanwhile several East European 'toes' have been baptized into foot of the beast that is a reviving Roman Empire as Daniel 2 foretold.
God's Word foretold that, "following the revelation of the Seven Seals, perilous times shall come. For men . . . while retaining a form of godliness will be strangers to its power."
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 here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible. . . Brother Anthony
Hubble Telescope: No New Stars Being Formed
May 13, 2002 -- The most famous picture ever taken by the Hubble Telescope, released in 1995, dubbed the 'Pillars of Creation,' has suddenly lost its glitter. The picture has been used for over half a decade as evidence that new stars can be observed forming in distant space. . .
Professor Rodger Thompson of the University of Arizona, says . . . infrared images show that the Pillars of Creation do not contain a lot of material and that star formation is coming to an end. . .
This new data is in stark contrast to what many contemporary astronomers believe. They claim that new star birth can be observed today and that the cosmos evolved over billions of years of time.
Numerous claims have been made by space explorers that have turned out to be unfounded. For example, NASA has continued to make the false claim there is evidence of life on the planet Mars . . . Astronomers have used a constant speed of light (186,282 miles per second) to calculate the distance of many galaxies from earth. But it now appears that light traveled much faster at the beginning of the universe. Thus many galaxies may not be millions of light years from the earth. . . (BBC News).
Comment: Brother Branham said, "They're going to find out someday that they're not seeing a hundred and fifty million years of light space either; they're going right around in a circle" (Christ is Revealed in His Own Word, 14:63).
Politicians Defeating National Security
Australia has a very small population, but is beyond doubt the world's biggest open-cut mine, with truly staggering quantities of iron, aluminum, copper, zinc, gold, silver, diamonds and just about anything else you care to name. So Australia was an obvious target for a hostile Wall Street "takeover", were it not for the hordes of armed civilians who might object to the massive theft. As Wall Street knew very well, armed Australians are not people to be taken lightly. . .
If you think the idea of a desperate Wall Street attacking Australia is absurd, take a very close look at Iraq. Using George W. Bush and the mythical "War on Terror" as fronts, an even more desperate Wall Street is openly planning to use the US military to invade and capture Iraq's oil. After that, the intent is to cut the oil-rich former Soviet republics away from Mother Russia, and basically steal the lot. . .
. . . the entire Bali nightmare was essentially a deadly Hollywood spectacular, designed to force Australian citizens to "follow their leader" into an American-led invasion of Iraq and the Muslim Republics. . .
Whoever the real D.C. sniper was, it was certainly not John Allen Muhammad, the man arrested for the crime. The FBI jumped too quickly in this case, accidentally arresting the suspect before realizing that Muhammad no longer owned the .223 Bushmaster rifle named in the warrant, which was then waved around by police on national television in order to incriminate him. . . he sold it back to the same store on 23rd May 2000 . . .

Vatican to become Full Member of UN?
Vatican City (Zenit.org) November 24, 2002 -- The Pope wants Cardinal Angelo Sodano to stay on as Vatican secretary of state . . .
In an interview published today by Il Corriere della Sera, Italy's largest paper, Cardinal Sodano spoke about some of the most moving moments of these years of service to the Pope. He also spoke of three of his top objectives:
- to promote peace, particularly in Iraq;
- to extend the United Nations' presence;
- and to influence the values of the new Europe.
. . .Cardinal Sodano explained that the Vatican intends "to study the possible ways for a greater presence in this assembly," without discarding the possibility of becoming a full member of the United Nations, "if this would be useful." However, he explained, "it is an open question." Full story: zenit.org
7.9 Alaska Quake Caused by Huge Fault Rupture
Pasadena, California (Reuters) November 21, 2002 -- A 7.9 magnitude earthquake in Alaska earlier this month was triggered by one of the largest fault ruptures in at least 150 years, rivaling the one that caused the great 1906 San Francisco quake, geologists said Wednesday. . .
Kerry Sieh, a geology professor at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, said that rupture ranks in size alongside those that caused two great earthquakes along California's San Andreas Fault, including the 1906 San Francisco quake and another major quake in 1857.
Comment: Prophesying, Brother Branham said, "Los Angeles will be in the bottom of the sea" . . . And while I was in Africa, they had an earthquake . . . big, fine homes tumbled in in Los Angeles, and a motel, and so forth. . . Since that earthquake, there is a two or three-inch crack . . . starting in Alaska, goes around through the Aleutian Islands, comes out about a hundred and fifty or two hundred miles in the sea, comes back up at San Diego; takes in Los Angeles, and comes out again just below the northern part of California there, a little place called San Jose, just below there" (Ashamed of Him, 9:52-53).

The Restoration of the Bride Tree
Tree of Life in the garden of Eden was Christ; the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil was His enemy, and Adam's fallen race is the Bride Tree Lucifer deceived, because Christ the Word is the Husband of the soul of Adam's elect children. God is restoring this fallen Bride Tree to its ordained position whence it fell when Eve stepped from eternity over the Life line of His revealed Word into time and death.
Before God could redeem us back into His Presence it was necessary for Him to meet the cost of reconciling the lives Adam and Eve surrendered by substituting a sinless Life that could resurrect Itself in victory over Sin and Death, ransoming and justifying those saints who were its captives. For God could not bypass but had to fulfill the requirements of His own Law.
Jesus said, "Don't imagine that I've come to destroy the Law or the prophets. I came to fulfill and bring it all to pass. With all earnestness I tell you, every Law will continue until its purpose is accomplished and heaven and earth are renewed. So whoever breaks the least commandment, and teaches men so to do, he shall be the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whoso teach and obey God's Laws shall be great in the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 5:17-19; I Corinthians 3:10-15; Matthew 25:1-13).
We need to thoroughly understand and obey God's way of doing things for without faith it is impossible to please God Whose blessings are apprehended by grace through faith, or a clear understanding alone. And He gave nature as a guide for the most rudimentary and isolated of men because the natural types the Spiritual.
We can find God in nature, for it is His creation and all of nature is complimentary since, unlike man, nature must obey His natural laws. We should not disturb nature, yet we detonate explosives in the atmosphere and under land and sea, ignoring the fact that earth must some time reconcile the imbalance and stresses through tectonic activity -- volcanoes, earthquakes, landslides, surface uplift and subsidence, floods and tsunamis.
When we cut down the trees, we change the pattern of rainfall causing flooding, erosion, drought and desert. When we dam up the rivers we create salinity and flooding. We have to find God's way of doing things and stay in It.
In the Spiritual we've isolated people from the faith in denominational prisons. And look what we've grown: "clouds without rain, carried about with every wind of doctrine; trees whose fruit withers, or without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots" (Job 12; Mark 4:1-20).
The Bride Tree without the Groom can't bear fruit, neither can the Bridegroom bear without the Bride. John 15:5, "I am the vine, you are the branches: he that abides in Me, and I in him brings forth much fruit: for without Me you can do nothing".
Stay in the provided way of God's Word. No statement of Scripture can contradict itself if taken in context and rightly joined together with the rest of His Word. Jesus thanked God that It was hiden from the eyes of the wise and prudent and would be revealed to babes such as would learn. So we need to be humble, to throw away our own ideas and accept God's provided plan in order to receive salvation for our soul and body.
If we had an artesian well gushing millions of gallons of water per hour on this side of the mountain, and a crop on the other side perishing for lack of water, we could scream until our tonsils wore out, "Oh, great water, come here and water my crop!"
It won't do it. It'll stay right there. But if you work according to God's laws of gravitation, that water will come around the mountain and water your crop. Faith will do it, if you'll work according to His laws.
For instance, there's enough electricity in the atmosphere to illuminate this room, or the field outside where it is dark. Franklin and others scientifically proved that electricity is in the air. Were we to drop a conductor from a great height it would pick up electricity. But we could stand out in that field and scream as loud as we can, "I'm lost. Great electricity, come now and light up my way so I can see how to get home out of this darkness." It'll never do it. But if we work according to the laws of electricity, why, it'll light up the way, so we can get home. But we have to work by faith or understanding of those laws.
Now, God has a law for our salvation and healing if we'll work according to His plans and His laws (Isaiah 53:5). We must humble ourselves, lay aside our own thoughts, and work according to His plan which is faith in His unfailing Word. We can't just imagine something and scream for it; do penitence and say rosaries, or crawl on bleeding knees to a church. It takes a law, and faith is God's Law for us. We must have faith, and faith isn't based on the shifting sands of man's theology. Faith takes it's everlasting stand on the unmovable Rock of God's eternal Word and rests there" (William Branham, We Would See Jesus, #61-0409).
If we would seek out and obey God's Laws we could realize the abundance He's provided. Jesus said, "I am come that you may have eternal Life and that you might have It more abundantly." As the natural types the Spiritual we know that life was meant to be easy, and it was easy . . . before the Fall. Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) proved, "Electric power is everywhere present in unlimited quantities and can drive the world's machinery without the need of coal, oil, gas, or any other of the common fuels".
One of his modern-day students, Tom Bearden said, "At any point and at any time, one can freely and inexpensively extract enormous Electro-Magnetic energy flows directly from the active vacuum (of time-space) itself:"
- The solutions to the energy crisis and the "oil problem" are in hand. These oil wars are unnecessary. There is endless energy available freely from the domain of time.
- Unbelievably powerful weapons are not only possible, but are already operating in several nations. The many powers of these weapons are unprecedented and mind-boggling.
- The cure of diseases such as cancer and AIDS, in fact nearly any disease, has become possible within a few years of sufficient funding. Everyone can be made healthy and stay healthy.
- Mind control on a mass scale has now become possible, and the machines to do it are already in place in certain nations. It has become possible to mentally enslave whole populations with the twist of a few dials.
However, in this evil age the wicked prosper. An elite group control the material resources of this present world, and because of their lust for absolute power, whenever these Laws of God are discovered, their lawyers or their thugs seize control over those principles and pervert His Laws to their own selfish purposes. Whereas all men could enjoy natural life with great abundance, free from sickness and disease, extending their years way beyond three score and ten, the 'Hidden Hand' of the Devil's children chains the rest of the world to servitude and death that, through them, Satan may be lord over us all as Israel Shamir described in Newsletter #253.
Genesis 4:16-17,25-26, "Cain went out from the Presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he built a city, and named it after his son, Enoch".
Cain's lineage established civilization. Brother Branham said, "Civilization is of the devil. I just got through preaching on that. All culture in the earth, all powers of science, and everything, is of the devil. It's his gospel he preached of knowledge in the garden of Eden. He's taken that knowledge, perverted knowledge, contrary to the Word, and will, and plan of God, and now he's had six thousand years to do just exactly what God did, only in a perverted way, and took the same amount of time to bring his own Eden in. Now he's got an Eden here on earth, and it's filled with wisdom, and knowledge. That was his gospel at the beginning, knowledge, wisdom, science. Never did God ever cater to such... He did this, because that he was a man of worldly wisdom . . . 'Cain was of that evil one,' not Adam" (William Branham, God's Power to Transform, p. 10:76,82).
"And Adam knew his wife a second time; and she bore a son, and called him Seth: For God, said she, has appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. And to Seth there was born a son; and he called him Enos: then began men to call upon the Name of the Lord".
Notice, the first time Adam knew his wife she was already pregnant with Cain. The second time he knew her, she conceived Seth. It was Cain, the seed of the Serpent, who killed God's seed, and God appointed Eve another seed in place of Abel. Seth was a type of Christ Whom God appointed to restore Adam's seed back to its position in the original Word. That was in the natural. In the Spiritual, in Christ's seed, the elect New Testament Church, man began to call upon the Name of the Lord, whereas the seed of the Serpent continued to follow its worldly and intellectual pursuits.
God called one man out from the seventh generation of the first Adam. He brought Enoch to the pinnacle of faith and translated him without death because he had perfect faith, the mind of Christ. But without faith it is impossible to please God.
Sin reached its climax in Cain's sixth generation, when backslidden sons of Adam intermarried with Cain's accursed race. Like Cain, the offspring of this miscegenation was accursed from the womb and in the days of Noah God destroyed all but one.
Today the world is in sin, "as it was in the days of Noah." God is calling Christ's Bride out from Laodicea, the seventh generation from the last Adam, drawing her by perfect faith through the revelation of the Seven Seals into an invisible union with Christ, the Tree of Life. But sons of God who have fallen for denominational reasoning against the Word are uniting together spiritually with the daughters of man -- Rome and her (once) Protestant churches -- for the second crucifixion of the Word. These churches are coming together to force the mark of the beast and extinguish the kingdom of the last Adam.
Naturally, these fallen sons are intermarrying with the physical descendants of Cain, thus extinguishing the first Adam's race from which God's elect are drawn. Multiculturalism is forbidden by God's Bible and accursed of God because it is multi-racialism (Genesis 1:11).
As the sophists and unbelievers scoffed at Noah and his family, and all outside the ark perished in the waters, today's skeptics and infidels scoff at the end-time Bride. But all outside Christ will perish in the atomic conflagration of Armageddon (II Peter 3:1-12).
Noah preached a hundred and twenty years as he constructed the ark, explaining over and again to everyone who questioned -- what he was doing and why. There on top of the hill, for all the reporters and television viewers to watch, God's Word was taking life. Fancy building a boat: flooding was unknown, as rain had never fallen upon earth. Small wonder Noah was unable to gain even one convert from among his own church friends. But his life was a written epistle, and a sign and witness against those who rejected His Message.
Today the Bride of Christ are written epistles of the Word for this generation. We have the Token on display which is the Life of Christ in us. Since "the mystery of God is finished" we now have the perfect interpretation of the Word so the Spirit and the Bride are one in the faith as Jesus prayed in the garden of Gethsemane. And as it was in the days of Noah, our Message sounds strange to denominational ears because It is strictly THUS SAITH THE BIBLE. Church-goers are not willing to identify with the Lord's despised few and bear the reproach of God's Word (John 17:21-22; Revelation 10:1-11; 22:17)
The natural conception types the Spiritual. God's firstfruits are those He fore knew as being quickened into written epistles of the Word for their day, whose lives would be read and known of all men; like Noah, a witness against the unbeliever (II Thessalonians 2:10-12). In the natural union, only one of the millions of sperm released by the man is required for fertilization. It may not be at the head of the queue but have to work its way past its brother sperm to find and unite with that egg. Normally there is just one egg present, and to fertilize that ovum the sperm must penetrate its outer covering. Unsuccessful sperm die and are absorbed by the body of his wife. In the natural or first birth, less than one in a million is ordained to bring life. Likewise, in the Spiritual or second birth, less than one in a million so-called Christians is ordained to Life.
Our soul is the feminine of God the Word. "My Word is Spirit and It is Life . . . So faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. But I ask you, Haven't they heard? Yes truly, their Message went into all the earth, and the saint's Words to the ends of the world" (John 6:63; Romans 10:17-18; Revelation 10:8-11).
When the last elect Gentile soul is quickened to Kingdom Life, God will close their dispensation. Like Israel, apostate and know it not, they will continue to preach their man-made salvation message into the tribulation, killing all who refuse their mark of the beast, Rome's Trinity dogma, as Paul and the Elders of his day murdered Stephen and all who refused to bow down to their Talmudic evil (Romans 11:32). Only God's Word for the hour is ordained to Life and only the elect soul can receive It. The rest will be judged by the very Word they have rejected.
The new birth is more mysterious than the virgin birth. It is a virgin birth by God's Word for the hour that will produce another Son of God when It's received by faith as Mary received the Word by faith. If you're born-again, or ordained to be born-again in these last days, then by foreknowledge you were in your Father the Word before the foundation of the world.
Because of the Fall your first or natural birth was to a sinful disposition, and things went wrong with your life. When you wanted to profess Christianity, it just didn't seem to work for you. The Word that was preached made no sense. Maybe you were too successful in this world, too popular. Perhaps you bore an affliction that caused you to feel resentful. Or like the prodigal son, you've squandered your inheritance of health, wealth, success or happiness in this material world.
You've wondered, 'Why me'? Then one day you encountered the Word for your day. What happened? It turned on a little Light. The sperm of God's Word penetrated the hard outer shell of your soul and fertilized It with God's Spirit. After all these years It began to make sense -- to you. But none of your friends were able to catch the understanding God was revealing to your heart.
Now there is no evolution or change of species in the natural or in the Spiritual. So if you're born-again, you won't be a denominational believer, for the elect of God cannot be deceived on the revealed Word of God (Matthew 24:24; John 10:1-5). You can't hold to denominational doctrines and put on the faith of Jesus Christ in your second birth any more than in your first birth could you put on the cells of a dog, then a horse, and once again, human cells. You will put on Word upon Word, Word upon Word, here a little and there a little as your understanding grows from the negative to the positive (Isaiah 28:9-13; I Corinthians 13:10-13).
This is how the Body of Christ has matured from Pentecost through the Church Ages to the present holy convocation or fiftieth day of the Pentecostal Feast (Leviticus 23:15-21; Revelation 1-3). We can see this clearly in the reformation of the Roman Catholic system of worship following the Dark Ages. Lutheran, Presbyterian, Congregational and Anglican denominations had their revivals under Luther's great revelation of justification by grace through faith. But they rejected the further revelation of sanctification under John Wesley, and the Methodists, Baptists, Nazarenes and Pilgrim Holiness took up the Cross. But they rejected the restoration of the Gifts and the Assemblies of God, United Pentecostal Church and others took up the Cross they had dropped. However, when the messenger to Laodicea received his Elijah anointing, he restored the apostolic faith and "finished the mystery of God" which the Pentecostals and all of the others rejected -- "that which is perfect," -- Christ, the fullness of the Word. Since they rejected Christ they've been apostate like Israel -- and know it not (II Thessalonians 2:1-2; Revelation 3:17-20).
If you can see the Word for this day is living through you, you know you are a child of God. All of the hard times and those failures, mistakes and tears were for a purpose. That by overcoming this adversity through the Word of God and prayer, you would put on the Character of Christ - for all things work together for good to them who are the called according His purpose (Romans 8:28-33). The Seed of God's Word must bring forth of its kind in its designated and decreed season. So when the elect hear that Word It comes to Life in them, and their lives begin to conform with what it has predestinated.
The rapture comes to the Seventh Church Age to call a Bride from that generation as Enoch was called out from his generation. All of the precious Church Age saints die and Enoch, the Bride alone, will be changed in the atoms and translated without death.
Jesus Christ was the firstfruits of them that slept - the Old Testament, and Church Age saints to come. William Branham was the firstfruits of those who are alive at His 'parousia' Coming. Those re-born by the end-time Message will be changed in the atoms without death. "We shall not all sleep but we shall all be changed" (I Corinthians 15:20-23,50).
As the sinless virgin-born Jesus veiled the fullness of the godhead and God vindicated His ministry by miracles, signs and wonders, raising the dead, restoring sight to the blind,and discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart, God has revealed the Son of man again in our day, the same, yesterday, and today, and forever -- veiled behind the flesh of a sinner saved by grace, raising the dead, restoring sight to the blind, and discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart, "as it was in the days of Lot" (Luke 17:28-30).
Jesus Christ was universally popular when he was establishing his ministry, discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart and healing the sick; everybody wanted Him to preach in their church. But that was just to gather a following to hear a Message. But when He began to deliver His Message, It condemned denominational headquarters, and instead of being loved and wanted, He was despised and His life threatened. This was the pattern of Brother Branham's ministry.
Whenever a Message is sent from the Presence It is unwelcome in denominational circles because what they believe was fulfilled in bringing the elect of bygone days to the birth. Christians are anointed to the present Truth of God's Word, not anointed to the denomination. When Brother Branham was anointed for his prophetic ministry, he was rejected by the denominations and put outside their doors with the second or 'parousia' Coming of the Word he introduced, as John the Baptist had been rejected along with the 'erchomai' Coming of the Word he introduced.
Numerically the elect are very few in the circle of the end-time Bride. In Genesis we were typed by Enoch. One man in all the world was translated without death before the Flood. The flood types the Tribulation. Noah and his family represent the 144,000 remnant of Israel who will go through the Tribulation and perish. Most of those within the circle of the Message are at best foolish virgin.
The sleeping saints cannot be resurrected in their glorified bodies until the full number of the end-time Bride of Christ is made perfect by the restoration of the apostolic faith and the revelation of the hidden mysteries (Hebrews 11:39; Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:7).
Paul explains this is I Thessalonians 4:16, "The Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
Bear in mind, we are not looking for Jesus the glorified Man to descend to earth. His precious feet won't touch this earth until He returns with the glorified saints of all ages, after the destruction of all life on earth (Malachi 4:1-3; Revelation 19:20; 20:5, 10). It's not Jesus the Man but Christ the fullness of the anointed Word that descends.
Christ starts His descent with the "shout" of the Message revealed through the seventh angel, calling the wise and foolish virgin out from Rome and her (once) Protestant harlot daughters and in to Him (Matthew 25:6; Acts 3:19-23; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:1-7; 18:4). "And every soul which will not hear that prophet will be destroyed from among the people".
Following the "shout" is the "Voice of the Archangel," Jesus Christ. Brother Branham said, "The second is a Voice of the resurrection. The same Voice in St. John 11:38 and 44 that called Lazarus from the grave. Getting the Bride together, and then the resurrection of the dead, to be caught up with it . . . the third thing is a trumpet, which always at the Feast of Trumpets is calling the people to the feast; and that will be the Lamb's supper with the Bride in the sky" (William Branham, The Rapture, p. 32:152-153).
Quoting Matthew 27:45-53, Brother Branham said that, "His loud voice awakened the Old Testament saints just exactly like the loud voice wakened Lazarus". According to Strong's Lexicon the Greek word "megas" is translated "loud" 33 times, "great" 150 times, and also "strong," "mighty," etc., so we are mistaken if we are expecting to hear an audible voice. As already stated, a loud voice has never raised the dead or provided the needs of the saints, however if within our heart our faith declares the authority of God's unchanging Word, It must come to pass.
As Brother Branham explained, the Voice of the Archangel is speaking to the Bride now, bringing her to maturity by placing the Message from Genesis to Revelation. During the manifestation of the Sons of God, what we say, God will bring to pass because we will be under pre-eminence to the Word and the Voice will be Christ in us, the hope of glory. Brother Branham called It "a Voice of the resurrection," and "the third pull".
Think about this. If the "shout" of the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ, the fullness of the Word, back to earth in Word form as the Bible foretold, the sleeping saints are here with Him now because they are in Christ, being the manifested, vindicated Word for their day (I Corinthians 13:10; Acts 3:21; Revelation 10:7).
Paul said, "That after the Seven Church Ages God would gather together in one all things in Christ, those who are in heaven and who are on earth; even in Him" (Ephesians 1:10). That oneness is "the unity of the faith" (John 17:21-26; Ephesians 4:13). Jesus testified to this mutual recognition of the present Truth among the living and the departed saints in the hour when Christ claimed the Book and loosed its Seven Seals (Revelation 5:8-14).
The saints of God are here now in their theophany bodies in that dimension called the air waiting for the Seventh Trump and the opening of the Sixth Seal when they will put on glorified flesh. That great authoritative Voice of the Archangel is incarnating the living end-time Bride, bringing her into maturity in the unity of the faith to speak the Word in the manifestation of the Sons of God for her translation after the resurrection of the Church Age saints.
When the end-time Bride is in 'speaking conditions,' there will be a resurrection among the Church Age saints.
I Corinthians 15:50-52, "Corruptible sin-born flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. The mystery is that we shall not all die, but we shall all be changed in an instant, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we who are alive shall be changed".
If the Bridegroom is the Tree of Life, His many-membered Bride are Trees of Life "bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding their fruit every month" for through the invisible union the two are one Spirit (I Corinthians 6:17). nl254.htm
