Bible Believers' Newsletter 452
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; you are welcome.
Cowards are always found in the upper, rather than the lower or middle ranks of a people. Intellect not governed by faith in God's Absolute obviously ruins character. The lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life outfox genius until deception becomes tradition supported by the Establishment. Such is religionall religion.
Through television we are made to see things we do not understand so we will believe things that are not true. Video-taping makes events that took place weeks or months ago look as if they are in real time. Computer editing enables scenes to be spliced together to create completely artificial situations. Special effects have cost United States taxpayers over $500 billion, and the Iraqi and Afghan people their nations millions of lives in the television hoax of the War against the abstract noun "Terrorism." What we see on TV is not what it appears to be, but "seeing is believing." Such is politics.
Religion and politics, under Bankster control, are uniting for the second crucifixion of the Word and totalitarian hegemony over the world. This week we will feature the transcript of a court trial in which God's Word exposes Satan's Synagogue.
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever 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.
German Globe maker 'establishes' Palestine
November 20, 2006 Pro-Israel advocacy groups campaign around the globe against the use of the word "Palestine," since no such country exists, but it turns out that globes being sold in Israel bear the term.
Billed as an educational toy that teaches young children geography the widely sold "Ravensburger Puzzle Ball Classic Globe" includes both Israel and Palestine. Although the product has been on the market for more than two years, all of those contacted by The Jerusalem Post, from toy store owners to the Israeli distributor to the German manufacturer, reacted with surprise when informed of the imaginative geography . . .
Toy and decorative globes either omitting the State of Israel or including a state of Palestine are nothing new. According to the Anti-Defamation League, the last occurrence was in 2002 when a product called the "Geo Genius World Globe" included Palestine, but no Israel. After being contacted by ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman the retailer promised to rectify the error immediately. Full story: jpost.com
Dialectics, Rockefellers, and Population Control
November 27, 2006 The power elite's favorite means of controlling people is the dialectical process. This often involves creating a "threat" to a particular population. For example, the terrorist threat after 9/11 caused Americans to be willing to give up certain of their freedoms which they had been unwilling to give up before 9/11. . . If the radical Islamic (Iranian) threat were greatly abated, Israel would have less incentive to become part of a world government. Just as the American population is being manipulated/controlled, so are the Israelis.
One of the families connected to the power elite is the Rockefeller family, as former Congressman William Dannemeyer has recounted that David Rockefeller told him that some men are born to rule, but most men are born to be ruled. Therefore, it would be useful to look at a chronology regarding the Rockefellers and population control . . .

Iran replaces Dollar with Euro in Most Oil Dealings
Teheran, December 5, 2000 Iran has started replacing dollar with euro in majority of its crude oil exchanges in the last several months, an informed source with Iran's Oil Ministry said here on Tuesday. Oil Ministry has taken the policy to substitute dollar with euro, and begun to implement it for most of its oil dealings, the source who spoke on the condition of anonymity told the Mehr News Agency.
"This can maintain the real value of Iranian oil," he added. The majority of Iran crude's customers are Asian and European states, the source noted. Iran is the number two oil producing member of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). It also stands second behind Russia in terms of gas reserves in the world.

A Court Trial
Court is in session. The case is The World -v- The Word of God and the cause for this indictment is breach of promise. The Applicant claims that God has not kept His promise that, "If you continue in My Word, then you are My disciples indeed; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:31-32).
The prosecuting attorney in this case is Satan. He represents the world because he is of the world. The Defendant in this case is Almighty God and His Word because God is the Word. The defense witness in this case is the Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride. And the prosecuting attorney's witnesses are Mr. Unbeliever, Mr. Sceptic, and Mr. Impatient.
The prosecutor calls his first witness, and Mr. Unbelief is sworn in.
Prosecuting Attorney, Satan: I have two points of issue, the first concerns the Pride of Christ's end-time Bride.
Mr. Unbelief: God did not decree man should be equal to Him in Intelligence, and know or comprehend all His Mysteries. Hence the Trinity remains a mystery except to those who proudly think to be His equal.
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: God requires man to be obedient, and He commands you to read and understand Revelation 10:7 in which He promises that, "in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets."
Prosecuting Attorney, Satan: Please show me where God commands that we read Revelation 10:7.
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: The seventh "angel" was William Branham (1909-1965) the Prophet-Messenger to the Laodicean Church Age. Revelation 10:8-11, "And the Voice which I heard from heaven spoke to me again, saying, Go and take the little Book which is open in the hand of the Angel who stands upon the sea and upon the earth. And I went to the Angel, and said, Give me the little book. And He said, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make your belly bitter, but it shall be sweet as honey in your mouth."
Defendant, Almighty God: That was My Voice that spoke from heaven.
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: Your Honour, Christ was the Angel with the open Book. If you refer to Revelation Chapter 4 you will see that Redemption is over at the close of the Laodicean Church Age in 1963, and the Mercy Seat, no longer covered with the Blood of the Lamb, has become a Judgment Seat. "And out of the throne proceed lightnings and thunderings and voices. The sevenfold Spirit of God has left the earth and stands before an angry God; and before the throne the sea of glass is crystal clear" because the living sacrifice of the PART-Word saints have been washed, offered, and received.
In Revelation 5, the Elders advertised for a kinsman Redeemer, but no one in heaven or in earth or in the grave was found worthy to open and read or even look upon the Sealed Book Daniel and John were commanded to shut up and seal to the time of the end (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4). And Christ's end-time Bride wept, because without a kinsman Redeemer all creation would be lost. Then one of the Elders said, Don't cry, for the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Root of David has prevailed to open the Book and to loose its seven Seals. I turned to look, but instead of a Lion I saw the bloody body of the Lamb of God coming from the altar of sacrifice where He had lain as a testimony for 2,000 years into the Holy of Holies. He took the Book of Redemption from the right hand of Almighty God and sat upon the Judgment Seat (John 5:27).
This same Christ has returned to earth in the prophetic office as Son of man and Judge symbolized as the Messenger of Revelation 10:1-6 (I Thessalonians 4:14-16). In obedience to the heavenly Voice of God, whose Voice Mr. Unbeliever wants neither to hear or obey, "I took the little Book out of the Angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter." Because the revelation is stimulating, but obedience to its Message requires one to forsake the world and offer one's life as a sacrifice pleasing to God.
Defendant, Almighty God: "Christ's end-time Bride must share this Message with many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings."
This Message is Christ, the fullness of the Word. Since He is now Judge, Christ's Mediation for the ignorance of PART-Word is done away (I Corinthians 13:10). This Message is My final warning to Gentiles and Israelites to come out of Babylon and her harlot daughter churches and become one with the Father. There is no other avenue to escape My wrath in the great tribulation (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 14:9-10; 18:1-4).
This Message is My indictment of the world. All who refuse to hear it after the first and second admonition have committed the unforgivable sin, and are souls imprisoned now by their unbelief (II Peter 2:4-7; Jude 5-7).
II Timothy 3:15-17, "From a child you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make one wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works".
Paul is the prophet I inspired to write the New Testament.
Mr. Unbelief: The last prophet was John the Baptist (Matthew 11:13-14).
Defendant, Almighty God: Objection, Your honour. John the Baptist was the "Elijah" of Isaiah 40:3 and Malachi 3:1. Two more "Elijahs" follow him. William Branham was the Elijah to we Gentiles (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11), and as I speak, a Hebrew is waiting until I call My Church Home so he can receive his "Elijah" anointing to minister to Israel (Zechariah 4; Matthew 24:31; Revelation 11).
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: Is Mr. Unbelief trying to tell the Court Jesus Christ was not a prophet? That John, Peter, Paul, Jude, and many others were not vindicated prophets? Is he trying to declare Jesus lied in Matthew 23:34 and Revelation 10:7, or that Paul lied in Ephesians 4:11-13 and I Corinthians 12:28? Is Amos 3:7 also inspired of the Devil?
It is inconceivable that the vindicated prophets of God's infallible Word could err in their THUS SAITH THE LORD.
Defendant, Almighty God: Revelation 1:1-3, "The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave to Him, to show to His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John: who bore record of the Word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Blessed is he that reads and they that understand the Words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand".
Every man desiring My blessing will hear and understand Revelation 10:7, for it finishes the revelation of Jesus Christ who is the mystery of God revealed. This is My COMMANDMENT. Those who question My command to receive the Message of the prophet of Revelation 10:7 will experience the curse of Malachi 4:6, Acts 3:23 and Revelation 22:18-19.
Jesus Christ and John were prophets. The "angel" who signified the revelation of Jesus Christ was the prophet messenger to the Seventh or Laodicean Church Age (1906-1963), William Branham. Revelation 10:4, 7, "When the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. . . But in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he has declared to His servants the prophets".
How do Mr. Unbelief, Mr. Sceptic and Mr. Impatient propose to serve God in ignorance of "the revelation of Jesus Christ" which was sealed from the foundation of the world "to the time of the end" and is now revealed? This is the end-time.
The new birth in Pentecost, in each of the seven Church Ages, and in this present holy convocation or fiftieth day at the end of the Pentecostal feast came through a clear revelation of the Word delivered by the angel for the elect in that hour. William Branham or someone with an identical ministry was (past tense) the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6 and Matthew 17:11 and the seventh angel of Revelation 3:14 and 10:7, just as Jesus or someone with an identical ministry is Messiah.
Amos 3:7, "Surely the Lord God will do nothing without first revealing His secret to His servants the prophets".
Without a prophet to restore the apostolic faith and finish the mystery of God, I can fulfill no Scripture of great moment.
Proverbs 29:18, "Where there is no vision, the people perish".
Job 36:12, "If they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge".
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you . . ."
I also always show a sign in the heaven (Psalm 19:1). I promised such a sign in Acts 1:9-11 and Revelation 1:7.
Mr. Sceptic: God has broken His promise. "Every eye" has witnessed no such sign.
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: Revelation 1:7, "Behold, Christ comes with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they who pierced Him shall also see Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him." This was the sign of Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming Jesus prophesied in Matthew 24:3.
God honoured His promise on February 28, 1963 by a Supernatural Cloud scientists have been unable to explain. It was the Shekinah or Pillar of Cloud as led natural Israel out of Egypt in the first Exodus now leading Spiritual Israel out of the church in the third exodus. The eyes of every elect have seen this Cloud which was the promised sign of Jesus 'parousia' Coming between the Sixth and Seventh Vials "as a thief in the night" with the Church Age saints for the first resurrection (I Thessalonians 14:4; Revelation 10:7; 16:15). Christ returned in March 1963 as and when He promised. You know nothing of this as you are looking for the physical return of the Man which only the glorified saints who come back with Him to step on the ashes of the wicked for a thousand years of peace will see (Malachi 4:1-3; Isaiah 13:9; Matthew 3:12; Revelation 19:21; 20:5).
This prophecy addresses three different groups of people. Every eye of those in Christ's end-time Bride will see Him and recognize their day and it's Message. Three and a half years after our translation, "they who pierced Him," 144,000 elect Israelites "shall also see Him" in a similar heavenly sign after the Great Trumpet under the Sixth Seal, and recognize their day and its Message through the ministry of two Hebrew prophets anointed with the Spirit that endued Moses and Elijah (Isaiah 27:13; Matthew 24:29-31; Revelation 6:12-17). Lastly, "all kindreds of the earth shall wail" when they see the first resurrection has passed and that in order to retain their names on the Book of Life and salvation, they must refuse the mark of the beast of Rome, which is trinitarianism, and refuse to serve or worship its (once) Protestant image.
Mr. Sceptic: Given that man is not responsible for his intellect or lack of it, how can God in logic command the impossible?
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: The Bible clearly instructs us as to the infallible vindication of prophecy. Intellect in general is a hindrance to faith, which is the evidence of things not seen, touched, tasted, heard or smelt. Intellect is a stranger to Spiritual understanding and obedience thereto because its point of reference is the world of present tense we contact with our ten natural senses of see, touch, hear, taste, and smell; memory, imagination, conscience, affection and reasoning, independent of the Supernatural God of eternity.
Matthew 11:25-27, "Jesus said, I thank You, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them to babes. Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in Your sight. All things are delivered to Me of My Father: and no man knows the Son, but the Father; neither knows any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him".
Acts 4:13, "when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus".
I Corinthians 1:22-31, "The Judeans require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: but we preach Christ crucified, to the Judeans a stumblingblock and to the Greeks foolishness; but to them who are called, both Judeans and Gentiles, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For you see your calling, brethren, how not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; and base things of the world, and things which are despised, has God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to naught things that are: that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him are you in Christ Jesus, who of God is made to us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: that, according as it is written, He who glories, let him glory in the Lord".
Defendant, Almighty God: Since Mr. Sceptic has refused the admonitions of Acts 17:11; Romans 3:4; Galatians 1:8-9; I Thessalonians 5:21; II Timothy 2:15; I Peter 1:8-11, etc., and is not baptized in Scriptural water baptism as commanded in Matthew 28:19; Luke 24:47-49 and Acts 2:38-39, having received a clear revelation of who I am and repenting of his past unbelief, when the Son tries to reveal Himself, he shuts his heart to His Voice.
Mr. Sceptic: Even you admit that the majority are not very clever at recognizing truth (understanding).
Defendant, Almighty God: My Truth is not for the majority. The majority are LOST. Jesus died to redeem His Own, whom He called a "little flock." One does not have to be very clever or intellectual to see that Scripture eliminates the majority, that isall organized religionfrom election, and even salvation. Consider the days of Noah, which type Christ's end-time Bride inasmuch as one elect man was called out of the seventh generation from the first Adam and translated while eight endured the tribulation of the Flood, of whom three were lost. Or consider Israel in the first exodus in which all but two adults were blotted from the Book of Life and perished naturally in the desert. Only Joshua and Caleb entered the Promised Land.
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: Read John 17:9, 20, "I pray not for the world, but for them You have given Me (out of the world); and for those who will believe on Me through their Word, for they are Yours".
To "redeem" means to buy back a possession that has been forfeited. God can only redeem those whom He foreknew as His elect (Romans 8:28-33; II Corinthians 5:13-14). The elect are attributes of the Logos, the part of God Jesus called, "My sheep who receive My Word and will not follow a stranger" (John 10:1-5). Matthew 24:24 states emphatically that the elect of God cannot be deceived on the revealed Word of God, for once they are born-again they cannot commit sin or disbelieve His revealed Word (I John 3:6-10; 5:17-20).
"The majority" today are physically in Cain's lineage through miscegenation as Jesus Christ prophesied in Matthew 24:37. Multiculturalism is the global repetition of this horrible sin which caused God grief that He ever created man since the offspring of these illegal unions are not in Adam's race (Genesis 6:1-4). Whole nations are born LOST as they are not in the Book of Life. Miscegenation, or multiculturalism, is genocide to Adam's race in this day as it was in the days of Eve and Noah. However, the majority of Adam's race today is either apostate or spiritual serpent's seed through hybrid religion.
Mr. Sceptic: Only the original Greek writing of John is guaranteed to be the Word of God; who among us can understand Ancient Greek, even if we still had that copy today?
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: You cannot understand "Ancient Greek," you know of no such scholar and do not believe the original text is extant. But were you proficient in the ancient tongue or knew a scholar who possessed John's manuscript, you would doubt your judgment, the ability of your translator and the authenticity of the document. Sceptic by name, Sceptic by nature: you exclude yourself from Christianity by the inadequacy of your self-works and impose your scepticism upon God's elect who depend on the Holy Spirit to reveal the meaning of God's unchanging Word by faith?
John 16:13-15, "When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will show you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He shall receive what is Mine, and declare it to you. Everything the Father has is Mine: therefore I said, He will take from what is mine, and declare it to you."
Does your ignorance of this ancient tongue make void II Corinthians 3:1-8:
"Do we begin again to commend ourselves; or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you? You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: Forasmuch as you are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone (or "ancient Greek"), but written in fleshy tables of the heart (by faith). And such trust have we through Christ toward God: not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; who also has made us able ministers of the New Testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter kills, but the spirit gives Life. But if the ministration of death, written and engraved in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away: How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?
Defendant, Almighty God: Mr. Unbelief, Mr. Sceptic, and Mr. Impatient, you are denying the "finished work" of Christ on Calvary. You are rejecting the Holy Spirit when faith is presented. This is the unforgivable sin and the mark of the beast. You are trying to apprehend God by human intellect, which is to declare the death and resurrection of Adam's kinsman Redeemer of no account. You want to get to God by a works program of understanding the "letter" which is DEATH, and refusing the Spirit which is Truth and Life.
How can you hope to benefit from understanding the "Ancient Greek" when you have rejected the revelation of all the Scriptures quoted in this hearing? How many of those who loved God and perfectly understood "Ancient Greek" in the days of Christ received the faith? Almost none. Many received the Spirit of Antichrist and slew Messiah, while their high priest and Paul of the Sanhedrin martyred the saints of the early Church. Soon the Gentile church, ruled by Antichrist himself, will martyr the "saved" non-elect as the early Christians were martyred by the Jewish church.
Prosecuting Attorney, Satan: I had two points of issue, in my second point I said that Jesus was "I Am" before he was born. And also that "We must eat His flesh . . ." You have said, "This is unscriptural nonsense. Before Jesus was born He was only in the foreknowledge of God, of whom He is the manifestation in virgin-born flesh as Adam's kinsman Redeemer". You also said that "The elements we receive when we observe the Lord's Supper, not His breakfast or His lunch, are not the actual Body and Blood of the Lord, but symbols which represent His broken body and the Life that was in the blood".
"Jesus answered: If I glorify Myself, My glory is nothing. It is My Father that glorifies Me, of whom you say that He is your God. And you have not known Him: but I know Him. And if I shall say that I know Him not, I shall be like to you, a liar. But I do know Him and do keep His Word. Abraham your father rejoiced that he might see My day: he saw it and was glad. The Jews therefore said to Him: You are not yet fifty years old. And have You seen Abraham? Jesus said to them: Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham was made, I AM. They took up stones therefore to cast at Him. But Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple".
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: John 8:54-59 speaks of God's foreknowledge of Jesus, Abraham's foreknowledge of Jesus Messiah by faith, and Jesus' knowledge of Abraham's faith, he being known as the father of those who have faith. The Logos is the Shekinah, the Pillar of Cloud or Fire Ezekiel 1:28 called "the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord." The Logos means finished concept or thought expressed in speech. God's thoughts were complete in Eternity, then expressed as the Logos when time began along with the manifestation of the Sun. All of God's elect were in the Logos, that is, in the glory of God before Abraham or Jesus Christ was manifest in flesh. Jesus was born of a virgin. Before His birth the Logos was, but Jesus was not. You are in confrontation with the Lord.
Mr. Impatient: Take care you are not with these Jews in the Temple, casting stones . . .
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: One of the keys to understanding Scripture is the word "manifestation." Out of the Logos souls were created and manifested as the sons of Adam, and out of human reasoning against the Logos and lust the sons of Cain were manifested.
I Timothy 3:16, "Without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory".
Jesus Christ is the manifestation of God as Adam's virgin-born kinsman Redeemer. The Man Abraham worshipped in Genesis 18 was God manifest in a created Man. He was not Jesus who was not yet born, but He was the Logos manifest in created flesh as He proved by the Messianic Sign of Hebrews 4:12. There you have a fourth person in your trinity. In Genesis 14 we see the Logos manifest in a Man. He was God, but He was not Jesus: a fifth person in your trinity. Jacob wrestled with the manifestation of another created Man who was also God, a sixth person in your trinity. Gideon offered cakes to a seventh manifestation of God in created flesh. Job debated with an eighth manifestation of God in flesh.
God is not "three in one," but ten thousands times ten thousand and thousand thousands in one (Daniel 7:10; Revelation 5:11). The Bible explains how God is changing His form or unfolding Himself from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts into the flesh of His glorified FamilyJesus Christ and His Brothers and Sisters. The elect Church is God made manifest. In the new heavens and earth God will be worshipped by the "saved" throughout eternity in the manifestation of His FamilyJesus Christ and His Bride, Head and Body one through the invisible marriage union. Each of our bodies born of a woman is called anew from the elements by God's creative Word which regenerated our soul. Christ's victory over death is replicated in the sleeping saints who rise, and we who change in the atoms.
Prosecuting Attorney, Satan: And on that other bit of nonsense, again from Scripture:
John 6:51-59, "I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If any man eats of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is My flesh, for the life of the world. The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying: How can this Man give us His flesh to eat? Then Jesus said to them: Amen, amen, I say unto you: except you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink His blood, you shall not have Life in you. He that eats My flesh and drinks My blood has everlasting Life: and I will raise him up in the last day. For My flesh is meat indeed: and My blood is drink indeed. He that eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me: and I in him. As the living Father has sent Me and I live by the Father: so he that eats Me, the same also shall live by Me. This is the bread that came down from heaven. Not as your fathers did eat manna and are dead. He that eats this bread shall live forever".
"After this, many of his disciples went back and walked no more with Him."
Do you likewise deny His Words and walk no more with Him?
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: No, it is your client the World, and Mr. Unbelief, Mr. Sceptic, and Mr. Impatient who have been walking away from the revealed Word throughout time, and in this hearing the Applicant and his witnesses have determined to increase their pace.
Your understanding of our Lord's command is perverse and contrary to God's Word which commands us not to eat blood or human flesh: Genesis 9:4, "You must not eat flesh with its lifethat is, its bloodin it. I will require full satisfaction from your lifeblood. . ."
The Body of Christ is His Church (I Corinthians 12:12-27; Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:21-23). We are the Blood of Christ by the baptism with the Holy Ghost who lives in us, for the life is in the blood (John 6:63; 17:21-26; Romans 8:9-11; II Corinthians 4:10-12; Galatians 3:27-29).
Your perverse understanding makes Paul contradict Moses and Jesus Christ, in which case he would be a false prophet. Paul explains in I Corinthians 11:23-34 that the elements of square unleavened bread made with holy hands and wine made by holy hands or feet are a memorial or symbol of the Word made flesh and broken by Israel; the wine represents the Blood in which flowed the spirit or Life of Jesus Christ. The Lord's Supper, which is partaken only by those who are saints, signifies we are one with the Word and Spirit of God as Jesus prayed in Gethsemane. This is why we must tarry for one another to ensure all consciences are clear before observing this memorial, which is followed by foot washing.
Your client and his witnesses are trying to know God by the letter of ancient Greek and self-works, which is why you they alienated from Christ and spiritually dead.
Prosecuting Attorney, Satan: That's a pretty good story. Yet I have heard a lot of good stories, many are imaginary interpretations of Holy writ. Some are like Startrek. Take the Book of Mormon as an example. . . All great imaginative works; yours is just one among many, not provable to be anything but the imaginings of man.
Jesus said, of those who truly follow Him, that they will raise the dead etc . . . as proof of Him. . . That He sent them. . . Who of these fables has any power to raise the dead? Bro. Branham?
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: No man can heal or raise the dead. Like our Lord Jesus, Brother Branham could only do what God showed Him by vision, and speak the Words God inspired to His heart (John 5:19).
Yet the Lord God raised more dead, restored sight and hearing to more blind, deaf and dumb and made more cripples whole in Brother Branham's ministry than is recorded in the whole of Scripture. Still, Mr. Unbelief, Mr. Sceptic, Mr. Impatient, and the World will not believe. Brother Branham's ministry revealed Jesus Christ the same, yesterday and today, and forever, and was the last sign Jesus promised before the end of the Gentile dispensation (Luke 17:28-30).
As God veiled Himself behind the created Man in Genesis 18 and revealed Himself by the Sign of Hebrews 4:12, "Discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart," He veiled Himself behind Jesus' virgin-born flesh and identified Messiah by the same Sign. In this day God has veiled Himself behind the sin-born flesh of a regenerated sinner saved by grace and identified Himself by the same sign. Not is a secret place, but around and around the world in single congregations of hundreds of thousands. His second service in Durban, South Africa, had to be held at the race trackthe second largest in the world. The following day the council required seven ten-ton trucks to cart away discarded stretchers, cots, wheel chairs and leg irons. Brother Branham did not touch one of them: God did.
There is your proof, Mr. World, Mr. Unbelief, Mr. Sceptic, and Mr. Impatient, if you have eyes to see and ears to hear.
Mr. Unbelief: I did a research on Branham years ago after correspondence with you. Unique though he may be he was/is one among many, basically in practice Pentecostal or charismatic. We even have Catholic sects involved.
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: Brother Branham was the "angel" to the Laodicean or Pentecostal Church Age so he was of course a Pentecostal. However, as the forerunner of Christ's second Coming he was the only Pentecostal saint able to cross into the revelation for the new dispensation at the close of the Laodicean Church Age. He is not my Messenger; he introduced our Messenger, who is Christ.
You cannot equate the Pentecostal dispensation with the Charismatic Movement which mimics the Laodicean Church Age that had ended before the Roman Catholic church organized its charismatic impersonation out of Vatican II. I was involved in the Charismatic Movement before I became a Christian.
Mr. Unbelief: Below is a close summary of most of what I found out. Branham was not always consistent in his doctrines especially the Trinity which he developed over time.
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: Everything he spoke in the Name of the Lord is THUS SAITH THE LORD, and perfectly consistent with Scripture. However, until Christ revealed the mystery of the Seven Seals through His prophet between March 17 and 24, every minister was preaching a measure of error because the Book was Sealed. Because they had only PART-Word, Christ was a Mediator for their ignorance of the whole. He has not been a Mediator since Revelation 4, 5, and 10:1-7 were fulfilled. That ended Laodicea; all seven Church Ages are fulfilled. All denominational churches have been apostate since that time and are being bundled together by the Charismatic movement, ecumenism, etc., as thorns and briars ready for the burning with mother Rome as Jesus foretold (Revelation 2:20-23).
The Prophet's doctrine regarding the trinity was always consistent but in Laodicea the great commission of the morning (Matthew 28:18-20) was in effect for the Book was still sealed and Christ was "winking" at ignorance and denominational differences. So this man of God was calling "whomsoever will," as it was not yet time for his "Elijah" anointing to restore the Word spoken by the mouth of all God's holy prophets since the world began by his evening commission that would call the wise and foolish virgin out from all denominations (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4). God was attracting the attention of a people in preparation for this end-time Message as He gathered the crowds in preparation for Jesus' to deliver His Message. God revealed Jesus in Brother Branham's ministry by the same three three signs. The first sign was healing the sick, the second sign was discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart, while the third sign was the opening of the Word, their Message.
Brother Branham was to fulfill II Timothy 4:2-4, "Preach the Word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts they shall heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned to fables." At the apostasy of Laodicea he received his "Elijah" anointing and introduced the Son of man who corrected the errors of two thousand years, restored the apostolic faith, and "finished the mystery of God." The denominations rejected the revelation of Jesus Christ, thereby putting Him without the camp (II Thessalonians 2:1-3; Revelation 3:17-20).
Mr. Sceptic: Branham believed in the Divinity of Christ, that He was God.
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: Of course He did, because Jesus Christ is God. Not the Man part. You cannot kill God. The Man was a piece of meat! Jesus Christ was the fullness of the nature and character of God manifest in the virgin-born flesh of one man (Colossians 2:9). A spirit cannot die by man's capital punishment, or be nailed to a cross as the Man Jesus was.
God is a (one) Spirit (John 4:24). God is not "three persons." That is paganism Nimrod and Semiramis revived on this side of the Flood. From Babylon polytheism infused every nation, tribe and tongue. When Israel adopted the trinity, God dispersed the people and destroyed that kingdom. When Judah adopted trinitarianism, He sent Nebuchadnezzar to raze the temple, take the people captive for a lifetime, and began the times of Gentile rule over Israel, which will last to the consummation of life on earth (Daniel 9:27; Luke 21:24; Revelation 11:1-2, 8).
Notice, your Honour, God is the "self-existant one." Language and the "logic" to which Mr. Sceptic appealed earlier prohibit a self-existent two or three:
Jehovah the self-existent One
Jehovah Jireh the self-existent One will provide
Jehovah Nissi the self-existent One is my Banner
Jehovah Rapha the self-existent One is my Healer
Jehovah Shalom the self-existent One is our peace
Jehovah Shammah the self-existent One is there
Jehovah Tsidkenu the self-existent One is our righteousness
God is One (1) Spirit, not two spirits and one Man (Numbers 23:19; I Samuel 15:29; Job 9:32). God is one Spirit, He is the Holy Spirit. The Devil is one spirit, so are you and so am I. "Holy Spirit" is WHAT God is. "Father" is a Title describing what God became when His first Son, Adam was manifested. There can be no such thing as an eternal Father. Until Adam was formed from the dust of the ground God was only potentially the Father.
There was no Jesus Christ until He was born of the virgin in Bethlehem one April long ago. And there cannot be an eternal Son. Every Son is begotten of a father. Isaiah 7:14 and 9:6-7 make this clear and Matthew 1:1-25 and Luke 3:23-38 confirm the lineage of Jesus Christ and the fact He was "begotten" and is not an "eternal Son." Because He was the manifestation of the fullness of the character and nature of God in one Man, He is known as Emmanuel, which means "God with us".
Matthew 1:18-20, "Now the birth of Jesus Christ was like this: when his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privately. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, you son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary your wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost".
Either the Holy Ghost is WHAT the Father is or Jesus had two fathers and was bastard born!
If you take thought you will realize we have reduced the trinity from three to one. In modern parlance the trinity has been "downsized," and we are beginning to approach oneness with God as Jesus prayed in John 17 that we might be one (1) with the Father and one (1) with Himself as He and the father are one (1). That is, that we might all be in AGREEMENT (John 17:21; Ephesians 4:13), which is the function of the ministry of Brother Branham (Revelation 10:7-11; 22:17-19).
Now if we turn to John 1:1-3, 14, we discover that "In the beginning God was alone with His eternal thoughts. He is not now thinking or even taking counsel with Himself and because He is omniscient and infinite, all His thoughts He has always had. So the Logos (or thought in speech) was and is God (Proverbs 23:7). The same was in the beginning with God. All things are an expression of the Logos, without which nothing was made that was made . . . And billions or trillions of years after "the beginning" of time . . . the Logos was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth".
It does not require too much thought to realize that the Logos was not made flesh as you, without taking thought, testify. That would require the womb of the virgin to express all timepre-history, present and future history, even all eternity, every cat and dog that ever was or will be, every word, planet and battleship. What was expressed or manifested in the flesh of that one Man was the fullness of the nature and character of God.
Isaiah 44:24, "THUS SAITH THE LORD, Your Redeemer, and He that formed You from the womb, I am the Lord who makes all things; that stretched forth the heavens alone; that spread abroad the earth by Myself." (Also Isaiah 37:16).
Now where was that "Eternal" Son?
Suddenly the trinity has been "downsized" to one (1) Person! So God did not lie to Moses as the Roman Catholic church insists, and the First Commandment is an eternal Truth.
Exodus 20:3, "You shall have no other gods before Me (singular)."
Likewise the Shema of Deuteronomy 6:4-5, "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one (1) Lord: and you shall love the Lord your God (singular) with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might".
As we have already demonstrated by the Scripture, "Son" is an Office or Title God became when He manifest Himself as the virgin-born Jesusless than 2,000 years ago, as Jesus explained to Brother Branham in Revelation 3:14, "To the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things says Jesus Christ, the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God".
God is the Creator: only in Jesus Christ (and eventually His glorified Bride) is He a creation. God is eternal with no beginning and no end as He explained when He manifest Himself to Abraham in as a Man Genesis 14.
Hebrews 7:1-2, "This Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which means, King of peace. Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abides a priest continually. Now consider how great this Man was . . ."
This was not the Son, for Jesus had both father and mother (as supposed; actually God was both His Father and Mother as He was the Logos, not Mary's ovum made flesh, else He would have been sinful flesh like she, and not God's "Holy One" and our Redeemer Psalm 16:10). Jesus has descent as we have read in Matthew 1 and Luke 3 (Genesis 12:3; 17:1-8; 49:10; II Samuel 7:13-13, etc.). Jesus had "a beginning of days," and an "end of life," and now He is alive for evermore.
This Melchisedec was a M_A_N, yet He was a manifestation of God who proved He was the Logos by discerning the thoughts of Abraham and Sarah's hearts (Hebrews 4:12). This was not the Son but the Father of the Son manifest as a created Man, and who would later manifest Himself in virgin-born flesh as the Son.
Isaiah 43:11; 44:6; 45:21-22, "I, even I, am the Lord; and beside Me there is no Saviour. . . Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his Redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last (Revelation 1:8); and beside Me there is no God . . . there is no God else beside Me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside Me. [Not even a second or third person in a trinity]. Look to Me, all nations of Adam's race, and you will be saved: for I am God [singularOne Person], and there is none else".
Mr. Impatient: William Branham believed in the Divinity of Christ, that He was God. Hence I cannot understand your inclusion here. (When you write) "No man, not even Jesus could heal or raise the dead John 5:19." Yet what about Matthew 17:19?
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: I believe I have explained that fully. The disciples could not cast the demon out of the patient because of their unbelief (Matthew 17:20).
The seven compound offices or manifestations of the Attributes of God were all fulfilled in Jesus Christ, for God is unchanging (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8). Jehovah of the Old Testament is Jesus of the New. The key to understanding the Bible is the Word "manifestation." The Bible is the story of God manifesting His Attributes in the flesh of His family, that is, those who are at one or in agreement with God by grace through faith. Consequently the whole Family of God is God manifest, and the "saved" will worship God throughout eternity in the Form of Jesus Christ and His glorified Bride.
We are the Logos expressed. Were Jesus Christ to stand on one tray of the scales and His Bride on the other, both trays would balance as Jesus explained in the parable of the wheat. Christ's Bride is one with the Father as together we are the fullness of the Logos expressed. "Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone: but if it dies, it brings forth much" (John 12:24). This is the economy of farming and the fulfilment of the Pentecostal or Gentile dispensation. This is why God had to send us the prophet William Branham to restore the apostolic faith (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11) and finish the mystery of God (Revelation 10:7; I Corinthians 13:10). Without this ministry which has "restored all things spoken by the mouth of all God's holy prophets since the world began," that is, the fullness of the Word which is Christ, we would not be restored to original Seed (Luke 8:11) and manifest that we are the Sons of God during the resurrection of the Church Age saints after the close of the Gentile dispensation when the wise and foolish virgin become hunted and persecuted by the denominations (Romans 8:19).
Following the earthquake at the close of the dispensation what we speak God will do, vindicating that we are the Sons of God. Confirming we are one with the Father exactly as our elder Brother Jesus was one with the Father. Proving we are under pre-eminence to the revealed Word and have "the mind of God." This will not be a public show as it was in the ministries of Jesus Christ and Brother Branham who revealed Christ in our day (Luke 17:28-30); grace for repentance will be over (Revelation 22:11). Thereafter all whose names remain in the Book of Life will have to surrender their lives in martyrdom in order to retain their place in the Book and be granted into eternal Life by the Elect at the White Throne Judgment (Daniel 7:22; Psalm 82:1; 149:9; Matthew 19:28; Romans 2:16; I Corinthians 6:1-3; Revelation 1:5-6).
Already Christ's Bride is preaching to souls who are imprisoned now: dead, like the widow who lives in pleasure (I Timothy 5:6). Organization, the husband of your denominationwhichever one it isis dead. Do not wait until the earthquake to discover the Bible is Truth written in simplicity such that babes can understand without learning the ancient Greek.
Mr. Impatient: I agree technically that all power comes from God, and any true miracle worker merely is an instrument by which God reveals His power, and I might justly add His confirmation of the person who is His minister or prophet.
However Jesus was God as well as man, and He therefore has to be excluded from the meaning you impute to John 5:19 because He said elsewhere, I and the father are ONE. He meant that alone as a man, he was without power. To truly experience humanity he often insulated his consciousness from His Divinity. If he did not, then His example would be a hard one for mere man to follow.
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: You do not understand the simplicity of God's Word, and rather than seek to know Him, you set out to prove Roman Catholic traditions of men that make void God's unchanging-Word.
I and every Christian Brother and Sister is one with the Father, and one with Christ which is the fulfilment of Jesus' prayer in the garden of Gethsemane (John 17:21-26).
Mr. Impatient: Also, and you will agree here because you use this argument against Catholic miracles, the Devil can do great signs. And he does in many sects of the charismatic and Pentecostal movement including Catholics.
True, Satan can do great signs, but he cannot heal. We see him uniting the churches and outwardly pagan religions together (Revelation 13:14) and with the state for the second crucifixion. We see him mixing the races to divide and conquer nations in order to fulfill Matthew 4:8-9 in the totalitarian one world government Jesus refused but which the pope will receive. God also does great signs and miracles among misguided people. He does great signs and miracles among the pagans and witchdoctors, but He is honouring the faith of unlearned believers who are reaching up to the one Creator God with genuine need. It is God who answers their effectual fervent prayer of faith by a miracle, not the Catholic priest or the witchdoctor, or Satan (Mark 9:38-40).
Matthew 13:58, "Jesus was not able to do many mighty works there because of their unbelief." It mattered not that Jesus was one with God; if the patients had no faith God could not heal them. If you study the ministry of Brother Branham you will understand that God could not heal any of his patients unless and until they had faith to receive their healing. The Lord gave Brother Branham three signs, just as He gave Moses three signs to help the people believe and raise their faith to the degree necessary to receive the answer to their prayer. And the purpose of the "third pull" during the manifestation of the Sons of God is to raise our faith so we can change in the atoms. We will change in the atoms only if we have personal faith to do so.
Mr. Unbelief: I, during my youth without religion, was involved in psychic research including hypnotism and Indian fakirs. We did amazing things and did effect cures as well as illnesses at will. The so called Marian apparitions of Garabandal (not Church approved) contained this sort of magic. As well does many many stigmatists. The human mind is a vast resource of mostly untapped power.
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: Your problem as a youth was "religion;" now doubly so (Matthew 23:15). You need to curse religion and meet Christ in His Word. Religion is nothing more than a covering for sin. The first religion was Adam and Eve's fig leaves, but they were as transparent then as your trinity Bible-denying "Apostles' Creed" (so-called), based on the Nicaean Creed that was not adopted until AD360. What you are talking about is not Christianity. The cures, if they were cures, were God's answer to the faith of some unlearned person as I have explained.
Mr. Impatient: Matthew 17:19-20, "Jesus said to them: Because of your unbelief. For, amen I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard-seed, you shall say to this mountain: Remove from hence hither, and it shall remove: and nothing shall be impossible to you." Thus it is that I say Scripture can argue with itself forever.
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: Scripture does not contradict Scripture. You fail to understand the Scripture and Jesus' explanation. First He states the reason they were unable to cast out the demon was their unbelief. Then he explained that what faith they possessed was mixed or hybrid with unbelief. This he illustrated by the mustard seed, which, although it is amongst the smallest of seeds it will not hybridize.
Mr. Impatient: between all manner of people claiming to have the Holy Spirit guiding them. If the Devil has one, then the Devil can have all, without distinction, because there is no physical arbiter. Peter warned us of the need of apostolic authority.
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: The whole elect Church has apostolic authority (I Corinthians 12:28; Ephesians 4:11-13; Revelation 1 3). God set seven major apostles in the Church, but they were not "physical arbiters." A life lived by a clear revelation of their Message distinguished their dispensation from the previous Church Ages. It brought rebuke and correction to the backsliding of the previous Age and new birth to those whose lives became written epistles of the new Message. These seven major apostles were Paul, Irenaeus, St. Martin, St. Columba, Martin Luther, John Wesley, and William Branham. Paul and Brother Branham were both prophets. Brother Branham's Message restored Christ's end-time Bride back to the faith delivered by Paul who wrote the New Testament.
The Roman Catholic church has not recognized the major apostle sent to any of the seven Church Ages.
Mr. Impatient: "And account the longsuffering of our Lord, salvation: as also our most dear brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, hath written to you: as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are certain things hard to be understood, which the unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, to their own destruction. You therefore, brethren, knowing these things before, take heed, lest being led aside by the error of the unwise, you fall from your own steadfastness".
Holy Ghost in Christ's end-time Bride: You should pay heed to the admonition of II Peter 3:17, for you have been "led aside by the error of the unwise".
The material in the linked article in Wikipedia submitted in evidence of your research on Brother Branham is very general and without Spiritual revelation and could be misleading as it does not point either to God's unchanging Word or to the text of the Prophet's Message.
Any one wanting to understand the history and doctrines of our Lord Jesus Christ will search His Word, not what the Pope or anyone else might say. Likewise, anyone wanting to understand the history and doctrine of Brother Branham will study his words and take them back to Scripture. A Scripture Concordance to the Sermons of William M. Branham, transcripts of his recorded sermons, the Bible and Strong's Concordance are on-line on Bible Believers' Church Website for this purpose.
Those noble Bereans set us a fine example in the admonition of Acts 17:11. Every sincere Bible believer knows God promised and has sent us a prophet in these last days. Those who have not recognized Brother Branham as the promised prophet will be searching the world to discover who that prophet was (past tense) and ensure his life and ministry fulfill all Scriptures already fulfilled by Brother Branham, for the soul that does not receive this ministry of restoration will be cast into the tribulation (Acts 3:23. Also Malachi 4:6 and Revelation 22:17-19). nl452.htm
