Bible Believers' Newsletter 292
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are delighted to be with you.
Some people ask why our Newsletter speaks of "Jews" (note quotes) and Israel and distinguish between self-styled or so-called "Jews" who almost to a man are non-Semitic and have no historic links with Palestine and the Mosaic Covenant, and genuine blood Israelites descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? Sadly, such enquirers seldom seek objective Truth to the intent they might discover and learn the Absolute of God's unchanging Word and historical truth.
Such questioning seldom stems from independent thought or a sincere desire for Truth frees the soul free from prejudice, ignorance and bondage to subconscious reflex programmed as the social norm through a lifetime's mind-manipulation by the enemy of God and man. The objective of these often self-righteous, emotional make-believers zealously following the "letter" and politically correct outward form is the approbation of their fellow slaves. Jesus rebuked these men-pleasers as inwardly wretched and miserable, spiritually bankrupt, blind to the faith, and naked of the Blood (Revelation 3:17-20).
The resources on our Website and their own Bibles witness that they are hypocrites who disdain Acts 17:11; Romans 3:4; Galatians 1:8-9; I Thessalonians 5:21 and Revelation 22:17-19. They may well be among the sanctified virgin who like Caiaphas know all the quotes, but they are not reckoned among the wise.
They may also ponder why we emphasize the distinction between the true oneness of the godhead and Scriptural water baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the pagan Trinity and baptism in three Titles. The reason is the same: the programmed unthinking ignorance of most people 'educated' in a Luciferian system that has trained society to reproduce a predictable series of controlled responses to particular words, attitudes and situations so they will perform like Pavlov's dogs. And they do just that, proving the Talmudic dictum that we Goyim are 'human animals'.
The minister of God is not sent to these people or to seek the approval of men, but to edify and admonish the wise virgin to recognize the Enemy and know we are at the end of the Gentile dispensation when the natural and spiritual Serpent's seed are in the ascendancy, and rule the world having trained men to behave like jelly fish because they neither know nor have the backbone to stand on the Absolute of God's Word.
Look how they insult the United States. In the face of the White House, Congress and Senate Israel's war criminal Prime Minister said, "We Jews control America, and they know it." The land of the Brave and the home of the Free is ruled by wimps, traitors and foreign infiltrators. Congressman Ron Paul and Senator Byrd were probably the only two with backbone enough to say "Boo!" The enemy could care less about the ballot box of this shadow of a once Christian nation spiritually starved to death, and spending hundreds of trillions plus the lives of citizens to fight wars for the enemy that claims to be their friend. They know all the quotes but the Absolute is a stranger to them.
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.
Putin endorses Orthodox/Roman Catholic Reconciliation
(Russian News Wires) September 22, 2003 Last Sunday, the Russian President said it 'would be appropriate if the two sister churches rose above their controversies and found a common language. . . It would also provide an additional step towards the full integration of Russia into the world community'.
Putin said he could not invite the pontiff to come to Russia; this would have to proceed under the auspices of the leaders of the Russian Orthodox Church. Putin has met the pontiff before, during visits to Italy. Full story: rumormillnews.com
Did Rothschild write the Protocols of Zion?
Lucifer Triumphant, Mankind Enslaved
By Henry Makow PhD
Many people think "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" is anti-Semitic "hate literature" and a fraud. Nobel Prize winner Alexander Solzhenitsyn wrote that the book exhibits "the mind of genius." This is pretty unusual for a fraud. Solzhenitsyn said it exhibits "great strength of thought and insight. . . Its design . . . (increasing freedom and liberalism, which is terminated in social cataclysm) . . . is well above the abilities of an ordinary mind . . . It is more complicated than a nuclear bomb." rense.com
The issue of anti-Semitism diverts attention from this plot which has been unfolding for over 200 years and is behind world government, September 11, Iraq, Homeland Security and the bogus "War on Terror." FAIT ACCOMPLI!
I'm afraid the Protocols may be genuine. They are lectures addressed to Jewish Luciferians (Illuminati, Freemasons) detailing an incredible plan to overthrow western civilization, subjugate mankind, and concentrate "all the wealth of the world . . . in our hands."

Israeli Dissident seeks Political Refuge in Norway
September 23, 2003 Igor Zhemajlov, one of the leading figures of the anti-Zionist Slavic Union, was last week forced into political exile. The political movement was formed last year with its base in the million strong Israeli Russian community. In February an historical alliance was forged between the Slavic Union and Palestinian grass-roots under the leadership of Mustafa Barghouti, in a combined effort for a democratization of Israel/Palestine. The alliance shifted from the more accepted two-state separatist approach to the conflict, and focused on developing a civil rights movement to create one, democratic state for all citizens. . .
The Israeli community has over the years developed a means of turning proponents of democracy into political dissidents, where anti-Zionist political parties are outlawed, journalists are silenced and workers are discharged.
After losing his job, having his son assaulted in school, and been forced to divorce, Zhemajlov finally decided last week to go into political exile. Zhemajlov is as of now in Norway with uncertain hopes of being granted refugee status.

Comment: Jesus' Words, "Suffer little children, and forbid them not" has taken new, unintended meaning (The Making of a Deception).
Revelation Chapter Four Part III
Isaiah 52:1-3, "Who will listen to our report? And to whom can God reveal His saving power? In God's eyes Messiah was like a tender green shoot, sprouting from a root in a dry and sterile land. But to Israeli eyes there was no attractiveness about Him at all, and no beauty that they should desire Him. They despised and rejected Hima Man of sorrows, and acquainted with bitterest grief. When He passed by they turned their backs and looked the other way. He was despised, and they did not care".
Many imagine Jesus' campaigns made a big splash in the early Jerusalem Psst But then as now such Establishment instruments ignore, misreport or write a column inch in the dead poet's corner on matters or events at odds with their agenda. Consequently, when Jesus came to His own nation, few were aware of His Coming. Men expecting the theories of Establishment theologians to play out disdained Him. Of those who witnessed His ministry, most quickly forgot Him.
Romans 11:7, "Israel has not obtained that which for which he sought; but the election has obtained it, and the rest were blinded." And the more things change, the more they remain the same.
A subscriber visited Jeffersonville when Branham Tabernacle and the Voice of God offices were closed. No one with whom he spoke, either in Jeffersonville or elsewhere in the land was familiar with William Branham, whose ministry in the previous generation revealed Jesus Christ the same yesterday and today and foreverraising 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 17:30; Genesis 18; Hebrews 4:12).
The 'parousia' Coming of the Son of man and the 'rapture' now taking place are unknown to the world and to most churches within the circle of this Message. This news is shouted from the rooftops but who will receive our report? And to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? The Coming of the Lord was so humble it is as if He came as a thief in the night. Although He has been present with us since 1963, few can see Him or even care. Hardly anyone knows that the 'rapture' has been in process throughout this time. They are believing in man-made theology to manifest guesswork and not in the certainty of God's revealed Word to fulfill its promises.
It was man-made theology that blinded Israel, preventing the nation from seeing what should have been obvious, in that the repetitive nature of their sacrifices proclaimed them as only a temporary institution pending that which is perfect. Likewise the Gentile denominations fail to recognize Christ's mediation, too, was only a temporary measure until the fullness of the Word should come through the revelation of the Seven Seals. It should be obvious to all denominational people their faith was imperfect so long as Christ was a Mediator. But when the Seals brought "that which is perfect" in 1963, they were frozen in their traditions as Israel was mired in his Talmud, and equally blinded to the faith (I Corinthians 13:10; Romans 11:32).
Leviticus 16:14-17, "Aaron (the high priest) shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger once upon the eastern side of the mercy seat, and then seven times on the front of the ark."
The Ark was a type of Jesus Christ in whom God is enthroned. It was sprinkled seven times with His own Blood to restrain God's judgment during all seven Church Ages whose saints are represented in the Word within the Ark and under the Blood making it a Mercy Seat. Aaron, whose priesthood and mediatorial office typed Jesus Christ and the "angels" or messengers He sent to the seven Church Ages, interceded before the Golden Altar in behalf of their elect who knew only PART-Word, so that provided they offered the Word for their day, they could pass beyond the veil or be born-again.
Aaron was not making an atonement for his private guilt but for the faults, if any, in his sacrificial service and the work of the priesthood, in type the seven "angels" to the Church (Leviticus 16:11). This demonstrated the imperfection of the Levitical Law, as the one on whose mediation the people were dependent for forgiveness must first make propitiation for himself. It also demonstrated the insufficiency of PART-Word.
"Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the sins of the people, and bring its blood within the veil, and sprinkle that blood as he did the blood of the bullock, upon and before the mercy seat: and he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel [who type the Church Age saints], and because of their transgressions in all their sins: so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation, that remains among them in the midst of their uncleanness".
Throughout the course of the year the people have brought their sacrifices for their private sins: now, like the priesthood, they have to atone for the subtle sins in all of their atonements and offerings which were inherently insufficient (like the PART-Word of the Church Age saints), and not withstanding all those propitiations, there still remained an alienation between a sinful people and a perfectly holy God. The objective of this ceremony was to remove it; yet in the provision for its annual repetition its own insufficiency points to the only true remedy of a sinless Kinsman Redeemer and high priest (Hebrews 10:1-23).
"And there shall be no man in the tabernacle of the congregation when he goes in to make an atonement in the holy place, until he comes out, and has made an atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the congregation of Israel".
Thus the high priest prefigured Christ, who accomplished the work of atonement alone. Under the Law, to trespass one Commandment was to die without mercy. But so long as there was blood on the Mercy Seat, Israel had a mediator and mercy was available.
Revelation 15:8, "And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, until the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled," to purge and separate the foolish virgin from the harlot church.
Jesus said, "Man shall not live by bread alone but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God" (Matthew 4:4). All outside that Word were guilty of the Blood of the Lamb. However, so long as the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals, the Blood of Jesus was on God's throne in heaven making it a Mercy Seat and Christ was a Mediator for their ignorance of the fullness of the Word provided the worshipper offered the sacrifice of the revealed Word for his day.
However, in Revelation 4, after the Church Ages there was no blood, certifying that the last saint predestinated to Laodicea has been redeemed and all Seven Church Ages were fulfilled along with Christ's mediation. With the opening of the Seven Seals on the morning of the third day after the inauguration of the Church, the Mercy Seat became a Judgment Seat.
Exodus 19:16-17, "It came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the Voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that were in the camp trembled." And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount".
Notice the parallel with Revelation 4:5, "And out of the throne proceed lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God".
Israel's sudden change from mercy to judgment is a perfect type of the transition of the Church. As God was outside the camp of Israel, He has been outside the denominational camps since Laodicea ended in 1963 (II Thessalonians 2:3; Revelation 3:17-20). And as Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet God the "Shout" of Brother Branham's Message has been calling His people out from Rome and her daughters for the past forty years (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:4).
Lightning signifies Divine manifestation or heavenly illumination faster than sound in the wonder of revelation or Light on the Word inspired to the "angels" of the seven Church Ages (Zechariah 9:14; Matthew 24:27). Thunder is the Voice of God threatening judgment upon those who refuse it (Psalm 18:13). The Voices in the thunders were the certain sound of the Gospel Trumpet announcing Messiah's second Coming in seven Mercy Seats, baptisms with the Holy Spirit or Church Ages. Their redemptive revelations were received only by those to whom they were addressed and were accompanied by Vial and Trumpet judgments (John 3:18; 12:29-31; Revelation 10:3-7).
The seven lamps or torches are the sevenfold manifestations of the Holy Spirit that illuminated the Word of the hour to the elect in each Church Age. The fact that they are before the throne in Revelation 1:4 and 4:5 shows that they have departed this earth for the Church Age saints have already been redeemed and John represents the end-time Bride.
Since John employed only Old Testament symbols in the Revelation, if we go to Proverbs 20:27 we read, "The spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord." These seven Spirits are associated with man: John the Baptist was called a "burning lamp" (John 5:35). Again in Revelation 5:6 the seven Spirits are identified as seven eyes. "I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth".
God sent forth seven measures of His Spirit "into all the earth" during the Church Ages. This proves that He was dealing with an election primarily from among us Gentiles because He deals with Israel as a nation, and only in the Promised Land.
Zechariah 4:10, "Who has despised the day of small things? For they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven, they are the eyes of the Lord".
"They" refers to men. Thus we see that the eyes of the Lord are anointed men, full of the Holy Ghost, for God's ministries are not in the power of men but of the Holy Ghost. Putting our Scriptural discoveries together it is evident that the seven Spirits of God refer to the continuous ministry of the same Holy Spirit in the lives of seven men with whom God identifies Himself very closely. They are His eyes, and they are His lamps. These seven men are "the seven stars," "angels" or messengers sent to the seven Church Ages. Stars reflect light in the absence of the sun and the messenger or "star" to each age reflected the Light of the Son by the Holy Spirit.
Revelation 4:6, "And before the throne there was a sea of glass like crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back".
Moses represented the sea of grass both he and John saw in the heavenly vision as the brass laver fashioned from the women's polished copper looking glasses (Exodus 38:8). The laver was a reservoir from which the priests drew water to wash their hands and feet before ministering or sacrificing, and to wash the flesh of the victims.
The Sacrifice had to be washed before it was offered. Matthew 3:13-15, "When Jesus came from Galilee to the river Jordan to be baptized, John tried to prevent Him, saying, I need to be baptized by You. And are You coming to me?"
"But Jesus answered, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness. Then he allowed him."
Under the New Testament, water baptismoh not just any old howof infants with no understanding, sprinkling and pouring in three Titles, or in the Name of Jesus onlybut Scriptural water baptism by immersion in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ of those with a clear revelation of the true oneness of the godhead, and having repented of their past sins, was symbolized by the washing of the sacrifice under the Old.
The firstwork of the Christian offering an acceptable sacrifice of his faith is to be washed with water in obedience to the Word, for the remission of his past sins (or unbelief). We must come through the water by the Word (Matthew 4:4). Any sacrifice not according to the Word is rejected.
In Acts 19 Paul encountered a group of believers who were to form the nucleus of his Church in Ephesus. However they were without the Holy Ghost because they had not received the present Truth. They had been baptized for repentance by John the Baptist but were unaware that the Sacrifice had been slain and raised again for our justification. But when Paul explained the Scriptures more perfectly their souls were washed by the revelation of the Word. And in submission to the Word they were rebaptised in the Name of the Lord Jesus for the remission of sins and the Holy Spirit came upon them.
Ephesians 5:22-28. "Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the Head of the Church: and He is the Savior of the Body. Therefore just as the Church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands love your wives, just as Christ also loved the Church, and gave Himself for it; that He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word. (Not an Apostle's Creed, or three Titles of some Trinity of gods). That He might present it to Himself a glorious Church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loves his wife loves himself".
Water baptism is an external, public statement one has been washed internally by the revelation of the Word and justified by grace through faith thereby. I Peter 3:21, "There is an antitype to the eight souls who entered the ark by faith which now saves uswater baptism (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience (or faith) toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ".
Like a road atlas, the tabernacle and temple with their furniture were symbols that illustrate the way back to the Presence of God whence our first parents were driven after the Fall.
Genesis 3:21-24, "The Lord God clothed Adam and his wife with coats of skins. And He said, Now that the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: what if he eats of the Tree of Life and lives forever? Therefore the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden, to farm the ground whence he was taken. He drove out the man; and placed Cherubim at the east of the Garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard and prevent entrance to the Tree of Life".
The couple were placed under the blood of lambs and expelled to the outer court where the just will be found awaiting judgment. They built their sacrifice altar at the eastern gate but could not enter the holy place because under the atonement of animal blood four cherubim and the Shekinah like a flaming sword prevented ingress to the Presence.
There was one entrance to the outer court of the Tabernacle Moses made. That door represented Jesus Christ (John 10:1-9). We enter by faith in His Word, and if we abide in His Word, His Word will abide in us so we become one. Because our body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, that door also represents self-will which we alone control. By faith we submit our self-will to His Word, opening the door to our espoused Husband, the Word.
Romans 10:17, "Faith comes by hearing and understanding the Word of God." So Christ enters the temple of our body through our eyes and our ears when we understand and submit to His Word as by faith we hear the Word calling our name and enter through the Door into the outer court. There at the laver we must take His Name in Scriptural water baptism before we can offer a sacrifice of faith on the Brazen Altar acceptable to God. Sanctifying faith takes us into the holy place, thence beyond the veil into the Presence by the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which is the new birth.
When John, representing Christ's end-time Bride, sees the laver, it is as clear as crystal signifying that the last Church Age saint has been washed in water by the Word and is born-again. Christ's mediation is fulfilled, and redemption is over.
Next we see a preview of God's dealing with Israel during the tribulation. Revelation 15:2-5, "I saw what seemed to be a sea of glass and fire, and all those who have the victory over the beast [Roman Catholic church ruling the New World Order], and over his [once Protestant] image, and over his mark [Trinity doctrine], and over the number of his name [666Vicarivs Filii Deithe pope, at this time incarnate of Satan], stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God."
"And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are Your ways, You King of saints. Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your Name? For You only are holy: for all nations shall come and worship before You; for Your judgments are made manifest. And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened".
Talk about being "in the Spirit in the Lord's Day and looking back into time." After seeing the full number of 144,000 elect Israelites recognize their redemption, John looks at the vision once again and notes that the temple of God in heaven has been open since the day of Pentecost. However, the nation of Israel, blinded by the false teachings of their rabbis, murdered their Messiah in cold blood and brazenly took this guilt upon themselves and their children. They will not see this revelation until sometime after the Seventh Trumpet has sounded the close of the Gentile dispensation and the start of Daniel's Seventieth Week, which will be marked by earthquakes sinking the "Jew's" Babylon of Los Angeles and splitting the Mount of Olives, destroying the Dome on the Rock thereby (Revelation 11:19; 16:17-20).
The opening of the temple of God in heaven signifies the return of God's favor to Israel as a nation. His "testimony" or "the ark of His testament" is the risen, glorified, nail-scarred Messiah enthroned as King of kings together with His Gentile Bride.
Revelation 21:1, "I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea." In the new heaven and new earth there will be no more sea: there will be no sin and no necessity to divide the children of God from the children of the Evil one.
Nowadays it is virtually impossible to share the faith of Jesus Christ with those who claim to be Christians because they have received the mark of the beastBabylon's Trinity doctrine is engraved in their forehead already. And Satan will not permit them to "receive the Word with all readiness of mind, and then search the Scriptures, whether those things were so" (Acts 17:11). This is a sure sign we are at the end of the Age.
If you think I am making this up, go to some good minister or person who loves God and reads His Bible; try speaking about Scriptural water baptism and the true oneness of the godhead. Quickly you will discern they have received the mark of the beast already, their ears marked with an awl so they can never repent and receive the Truth.
Jesus said they would be naked of the Blood, Spiritually bankrupt, blind to the faith, and know it not. Having a form of godliness while denying the faith and leading their goats back into Rome's deep ditch and the lake of Fire.
Not so Israel's 144,000. Revelation 15:3-4, "They sing the song of Moses the servant of God" rejoicing like their forefathers after they had crossed the Red Sea and seen God destroy their former master.
Exodus 15:14-16, "The nations shall hear and be afraid: fear will grip the Philistines. Then the chiefs of Edom will be dismayed; the mighty men of Moab will tremble; all the people of Canaan will melt with fear." These once external ancient foes today style themselves "Jews" and persecute Israel internally from the highest offices. Moses spoke truth: the Serpent had a seed.
The 144,000 also sing "the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are Your ways, You King of saints. Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your Name? For You only are holy: for all nations shall come and worship before You; for Your judgments are made manifest".
When God opens the eyes of the 144,000 elect Israelites and they are born-again, they will not see a Trinity of gods but recognize Jesus Messiah is the Lord God Almighty, the only Holy One manifest in flesh (Isaiah 45:21; Matthew 28:18; I Timothy 3:16). Father, Son and Holy Ghost are three Offices of the one Person of God.
God's judgments will be understood by Israel when the sixfold purpose of Daniel 9:24 is expounded by their two witnesses. This will unfold how God has chastised Israel through the Seven Trumpets that have sounded since the inauguration of the Church. The Trumpets have been calling the second exodus out of Israel as they called the first exodus out of Egypt. Instead of plaguing Egypt, God has plagued Israel and those who impersonate them. Under their witnesses He will plague the Gentiles.
Through their ministry, 144,000 will acknowledge the justice of God's judgments over the past 2,000 years upon the nation that murdered Messiah. As He surrendered His life for them, they will surrender their lives for His Name, martyred by the very people who killed Messiah: their unbelieving kinsmen, Talmudic "Jews," and a revived Roman Empire under the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church and her once Protestant Judaeo-Christian daughters.
In Matthew 22:1-14 Jesus told the parable of the marriage of the kings Son, recounting how God sent Israel prophets "to call them that were bidden to the wedding, but they would not come." He sent more servants like John the Baptist but they scoffed and went about their worldly affairs while their companions killed those servants. Jesus then prophesied God would send Titus to raze Jerusalem, burn His temple, and destroy those murderers and their children under 2,000 years of Trumpet judgments, simultaneously calling a Bride for His Name (not Father, Son and Holy Ghost) from among us Gentiles until such time as the wedding was furnished with guests.
The parable further prophesied that when the Seventh Trumpet blew, King God came to scrutinize the guests, among whom He found a man who was not clothed in the wedding garment of the new birth, for the Token was not on display.
King God asked him, "Friend, how did you come here not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless." He'd entered by some window of the "letter" he could recite, and not by the Door where the wedding garment was given to those legitimately invited through their faith in the present Truth, and Scriptural water baptism, and he was cast into the Tribulation.
According to Acts 3:21-23, "Every soul, that will not hear the prophet Jesus sends to finish the mystery of God and restore all things spoken by the mouth of all God's holy prophets since the world began, shall be destroyed from among the people, or cast into the tribulation" (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7).
In Scripture a door signifies a revelation. We enter the Door buried by baptism in the precious Name of Lord Jesus Christ, for the water way is the Light today as it was on the day of Pentecost. As denominational short cuts all bypass the baptism with the Holy Spirit we must enter by the Door.
The names of Christ's Bride were written in the Lamb's Book of Life at the same time the Lamb's Name was writtenwhen in God's great thinking He was crucified before the foundation of the world. By God's foreknowledge we were crucified in Him since we were all part of the Logos (II Corinthians 5:14-15; Colossians 3:1-3; Hebrews 2:11-13; Revelation 13:8).
Every soul whose name was not written in the Lamb's Book of Life from the foundation of the world is deceived on the revealed Word of God and will continue to be deceived in this mortal life.
If we look at the symbolism of the temple, we see the Son of Righteousness seated on God's throne in the Holy of Holies (Ephesians 1:20; I Peter 3:22; Revelation 3:21), and the seven stars or "angels" to the Seven Church Ages reflecting the S_O_N-Light on earth in His absence. The star Light shining on the laver washes those who come through the Door of revelation, converting them into the Lampstand of their Age in the Holy Place. Those who are elect are drawn out from the Lampstands to conform to the image of the Son of Man, and reflect His Light back into the Holy of Holies, their beginning and their ending, where in God's mind they have been seated with Jesus from eternity.
In Luke 24:47 Jesus said, "That repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His Name [not Father, Son and Holy Ghost] among all nations [that is, to us Gentiles], beginning at Jerusalem" [to the elect of Israel who had not rejected Him].
Hebrews 13:8, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever." He was not a Trinity yesterday when Luke recorded these Words; neither is He a Trinity today, nor will He ever be a Trinity.
The Israelitish high priest lit the Golden Lampstand with sacred Fire taken from the Brazen Altar lit by God when Moses dedicated the Tabernacle. He lit the first lamp, then took of its fire and lit the second, and then he took the fire from the second lamp to ignite the third, and so-on.
The Golden Lampstands signify Christ's Church. The hearts of the Pentecostal saints were lit by Fire from Above. Then at the close of the Pentecostal Age, Paul, who was a Pentecostal saint and the "angel" to the Ephesian Church Age, transferred the Fire to Ephesus. He was followed by Irenaeus, the "angel" to the Smyrnean Church Age, who was born-again in the Ephesian Age. He lit the Lampstand for the Smyrnean Age, and so-on through all seven Church Ages. After these things, Brother Branham, the "angel" to Laodicea, restored the apostolic faith, finished the mystery of God, and lit the Lamp which shines the original Light once delivered to the apostolic saints plus the revelation of the Seven Seals for Christ's end-time Bride. The Light that preached repentance and remission of sins beginning at Jerusalem, is the same "gospel that has been preached in all the world for a witness to all nations" (Matthew 24:14).
Only the "angel" to the Age could light the Lamp as the letter to the Age was addressed to him. He alone was inspired with its revelation so only he could cross from the faith of the Age in which he was redeemed into the Light of the new Message. This explains why Pentecostal or Laodicean saints can never enter into the fullness of the Word revealed for this day.
As the Shekinah divided itself among the saints in the Upper Room, God apportioned His Spirit throughout Seven Church Ages in PART-Word like seven fractions of rainbow Light, expressing His variegated nature in the lives of the saints. In the dispensation of the fullness of those seven times He has gathered together these portions of Word back into the Logos or fullness John saw surrounding the throne in its original amber-colored glory. Jesus is Alpha and Omega, pure Word-Light at the beginning and the fullness at the end, not the PART-Word fractions of Light that required a Mediator in-between.
Christians walk in the Light God is shining now, the amber fullness, which proves God is calling the sleeping virgins out from those scattered fractions of Light mixed-in with the darkness of the world church system, to catch-up the living saints with the risen dead into one glorious finished Body (Ephesians 1:10).
Hebrews 13:8 proves the denominations are all in errorunited against the Word to preserve the power and prestige of organization. Each preaches a different gospel whereas the one and only faith of Jesus Christ is eternal and never-changes (Ephesians 4:5). The Church Ages they impersonate were transitory phases holding but a seventh part of Light. And revelation being progressive and ongoing, once they had organized to preserve what Light they had seen, their man-made constitutions did not permit them to keep on walking in further Light as God unfolded it to them. And to refuse further Light is the unforgivable sin and the mark of the beast (Luke 9:62; Hebrews 6:4-8).
Despite man's enthusiasm to do God a service without it being His will, the end-time evangelism is not Matthew 28:19: it is Matthew 25:6, Revelation 10:8-11, and 18:4. Lutheran Light, Methodist, Baptist and Pentecostal Light are darkness today as Israel's animal sacrifice was sinful post-Calvary. Were Stephen present He would denounce the lot of them in the Words of Acts 7:51-53, "You stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, you Anglicans, Methodists, Baptists, Pentecostals and all of the rest always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do you. Which of the Church Age Messengers haven't your fathers persecuted? And slain those who foretold Christ's 'parousia;' of whom you are now the betrayers and murderers afresh: who have received the Word for your Age by the disposition of angelsPaul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Luther, Wesley and Branham, and have not kept it!"
Revelation 4:6-11, "Before the throne there was a sea of glass like crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back. And the first living creature was like a lion, and the second living creature was like a calf, and the third living creature had a face as a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle. And the four lively creatures each had six wings; and they had eyes in each of the four faces on their head: and they do not rest day or night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was, and is, and is to come. Whenever the living creatures give glory and honour and thanks to Him that sat on the throne, who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before Him Who sits on the throne, and worship him Who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for You have created all things, and for Your pleasure they are and were created".
A mistranslation in the King James and many other versions of the Bible refers to these living creatures as wild, untamable beasts instead of living creatures wholly under God's preeminence. The wild savage beasts are the four Gentile empires of Nebuchadnezzar's dream seen in the visions of Daniel 7 and 8, in Revelation 13 which describes the United States, and in Revelation 17 which describes the United States and Rome together.
The living creatures guarded the Ark, God's throne of Mercy and Judgment, as it travelled from Church Age to Church Age. Here they are stationary in heaven as the Church Ages are over. The judgment is set, court is in session, and they are surrounded by the theophanies of the saints.
Unlike denominational teachings, every vision that is of God will be consistent with past revelations recorded in God's Bible. Genesis 3 shows how the cherubim guarded the way to the holy of holies, and we see this prophecy develop through Ezekiel 1, Revelation 4 and Isaiah 6, to the New Jerusalem in Revelation 21. Any true revelation from God will agree from Genesis to Revelation. God's revelation is progressive, which is why, unlike denominationals, Christians follow the Light (I John 1:7). We can trace the Trinity from Genesis to Revelation where it is identified with Babylon, and darkness.
Genesis 3:22, "The Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: [Notice, not the woman. Nine months later when Cain was born, Eve was still deceived, for she called him the Son of God, whereas she named Abel "vanity," or "nothingness"]: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the Tree of Life, and eat, and live forever. . ."
Cain and Abel attended the same church, and worshiped the same God before the same altar. By intellectual reasoning Cain offered his bloodless sacrifice of carnal self-works, whereas Abel by faith offered the life of his innocent lamb, a type of Christ.
You may be sanctified, but such offerings will not enable you to pass beyond the throne guards to the baptism with the Holy Ghost or new birth and into the Presence of God. The only way back into God's favor and Presence is through faith in the Blood of our Kinsman Redeemer. Fruit and vegetables, Trinities and Apostle's Creeds are carnal works without faith.
Four is the number of earth and of deliverance. The four cherubim today represent the four Gospels which guard the way to the Acts of the Holy Spirit in the apostles and every member of the Body. The Place of deliverance for this earth and its creatures is found only in the Ark of God's testimony, which is Jesus Christ. Like the cherubim, the tribes of Israel guarded the Ark led by Judah (lion) on the eastern side, Ephraim (calf) on the west, Reuben (man) on the south, and Dan (flying eagle) on the north . . . until God moved without the camp, a type of our holy convocation where Christ is now without the denominational camp. Let me illustrate:
Matthew's Gospel (Lion) guards the approach to God from the East. If a Trinitarian approaches that gate baptized in the Titles Father, Son and Holy Ghost, Matthew will demand, who is the Father of Jesus and refute his Trinity with Matthew 1:18, 23, "The facts concerning the birth of Jesus Christ are like this: when his mother, Mary, was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found pregnant with a child of the Holy Ghost".
Either the Holy Ghost is what God is and "Father" is a Title He received when Adam was formed, or Jesus had two fathers and is illegitimate like Cain. To prove the point, "All this was done to fulfill the Message of God's prophet, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His Name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us."
Jesus is not a second, third or any other fraction of God but the fullness of the godhead revealed in the body of a virgin-born Man. His Name is called Emmanuel, meaning "God with us," but His Name is neither Emmanuel nor is it Father, Son or Holy Ghost. His Name is Lord Jesus Christ. And in obedience to Jesus' great commission Peter commanded everybody to repent and be baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38-39). And if you are not baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ you have not been baptized in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Guarding the Western gate is the Gospel of Mark (ox). How is a Trinitarian going to enter that gate when Mark 16:16-17 says, "He who believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believes not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; in My Name they shall cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues." Father Son and Holy Ghost cast out nothing, but faith the Name of those three Titles will move mountains.
Let's visit the South Gate defended by Luke's Gospel. Luke 10:3-8, "Go on your way and remember I am sending you out as lambs among wolves. So don't take any money with you, or a beggar's bag, or even an extra pair of shoes. And don't waste time along the way. Whenever you enter a house, give it your blessing. And if it is worthy, the blessing shall stand; if not, the blessing shall return to you. When you enter a village, don't shift from house to house, but stay in one house, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house. And into whatsoever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you".
That exposes the religious fanaticism of not eating certain meats such as bacon, or pork, or abstaining from red meat on Friday (Acts 10:9-15; 15:28-29; I Timothy 4:1-6; Hebrews 13:9).
A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign because they only believe what they can see, touch, taste, smell or hear. Jesus promised the wicked and adulterous generation of His day their sign would be a witness against them, for when it came to pass it would be too late for Israel as a nation to repent (Luke 11:29-36).
In our wicked and adulterous generation, miscegenation, Satan's Garden of Eden policy, is Universal, "as it was in the days of Noah." And Homosexuality is lauded by the United Nations and seemingly every nation "as it was in the days of Lot." Jesus promised these signs, and the sign of the resurrected Son of man, the same yesterday, and today and foreverdiscerning the thoughts and intents of the heart, raising the dead and restoring sight to the blind as He did in the days of His flesh, and in the Book of Acts.
Times have not changed. The Gentiles have moved from mercy to judgment, and despite an abundance of signs, know it not. "Who will listen to our report? And to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?" nl292.htm
