Bible Believers' Newsletter 530
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The world order is rapidly falling apart. Prepare yourself Spiritually, emotionally, and materially, for the time is coming when love will be found only in the Bride. The Lord God is going to separate those who are His own from the world to complete rest and reliance upon Him in all things. Praise the Lord. Loose yourself from anything that s not the Word. He will not leave you or forsake you.
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.
Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott
Bilderberg announces 2008 Conference
Chantilly, June 5, 2008 The 56th Bilderberg Meeting will be held in Chantilly, Virginia, 58 June 2008. The Conference will deal mainly with a nuclear free world, cyber terrorism, Africa, Russia, finance, protectionism, US-EU relations, Pakistan and Afghanistan, Islam and Iran. Approximately 140 participants will attend, of whom about two-thirds come from Europe and the balance from North America.

Nuclear Explosion occurs near Epicenter of the Sichuan Earthquake
June 3, 2008 Boxun News, a Chinese-language Web site based outside China, reported that an unnamed expert has claimed that there was a nuclear explosion near the epicenter of the Sichuan earthquake, based on witness reports and the discovery of concrete rubble believed to have come from an underground military installation. The news of this nuclear explosion has raised questions about the cause of the earthquake. . . Full story: en.epochtimes.com en.epochtimes.com
It is also suggested that experimentation being conducted at the Large Hadron Collider for the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), located in Switzerland, and US military action employing HAARP are responsible for the Myanmar Cyclone on May 3, the eruption of Chile's Chaiten volcano on May 8, the earthquake in Sichuan, China, on May 12, 2008, eruptions of Kamchatka's Karymsky volcano, and Italy's Mount Etna volcano plus thousands of earthquakes in the region of Nevada.
Other HAARP-induced acts of Environmental/Scalar Warfare are said to include, the Kobe earthquake of 1995, the Sumatra earthquake and tsunami on December 26, 2006, two NASA Shuttle Disasters, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the Black Sea event of 2007, and the earthquake in Niigata, Japan in 2007.
Comment: Double, double, toil and trouble; fire burn and cauldron bubble. As postulated last year, it is looking increasingly possible that the sinking of Los Angeles will be induced by one of the factions vying for global hegemony.
Nuclear Armageddon: the Countdown
April 9, 2007 It is already known that the US invasion of Afghanistan was planned long before 9/11. The made-for-television 9/11 extravaganza was actually used to prepare for the invasion of Iraq. When the US finally did invade Iraq, many Americans who realized that the logic was wrong still consoled themselves with the idea that their government was actually moving to secure future supplies of oil for their benefit. Was there any benefit? No. Perhaps in the future? No. The US government is not in the oil business. It doesn't pump, buy, sell or distribute petroleum products. Corporations do that. In Iraq today, after great sacrifice of lives and treasure, US and other multinational corporations now have the opportunity to control and harvest that country's oil reserves. They will profit handsomely. You will not. You will, however, be asked to pay the bill.
The objective, which has been in the works for at least two decades, is to change the ownership of the entire non-allied Middle East, under the guise of religious warfare. (Emphasis ours). After all, there must be some crazy reason why those Arab lunatics are allegedly so committed to "destroying our freedoms" while the Bush Neocon/Zionists pass law after law to actually take our freedoms and money away!
This map shows the objective.
As you can see, Iran is now pinned on both sides by Cartel-controlled forces, and is the remaining piece that needs to fall to create a solid block of Cartel-controlled territory from east to west. There is also the issue of immensely valuable pipelines that could route Russian oil all the way to the terminal at Haifa. In addition, if Syria is also destroyed or occupied, it would appear that our "Middle East problems" would reach a final solution.
You can also see that Iran is huge. The US defense budget after decades of corporate looting simply cannot support enough troops and equipment to invade and occupy Iran in a conventional manner. Nuclear weapons must be used, and in sufficient quantity to completely destroy Iran's ability to resist invasion and occupation. The only barrier to this is the simple fact that the first country to use a nuke will be condemned by the whole world and ostracized forever. The obvious solution is to fake a nuclear attack, blame it on anyone you wish, and then use all the nukes you want. . .
Now that governments are simply "fronts" for corporate cartels, there is huge pressure to bring out the nukes and finally get some "good" out of them. But no one dares be the first to use a nuclear weapon on human beings. There is only one way this can be done. Someone who already owns nukes must set one off in a way that can be blamed on someone else. Once that occurs, the gullible will be cheering when more nukes are used on the "bad guys," and our whole perception of nuclear weapons will change. Nukes will suddenly become general-purpose tools, and the Bush Doctrine, that any country can be attacked and destroyed for any reason, will become the new standard in world affairs. This will be America's sad and final legacy to the world. . . Full story: ken-welch.com
Comment: One of the United States most secret aircraft called the SR-91 Aurora (on which this Newsletter reported several years ago) was 'blasted' out of the skies over South East Asia by a US Naval ship operating in International waters off the coast of Vietnam. Russian Military Analysts further report that the trajectory of the doomed US space-plane shows it had left the vast American Military base in the Indian Ocean called Diego Garcia and headed towards the Pakistan-Iranian border before its being shot out of the sky.
Barack Obama is not going to miss the chance to get big Jewish bucks for his campaign. That's why at his June 4 2008 speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in Washington DC, Obama over-exerted himself to outdo McCain in wooing the Jews:
"Today I am among friends who share my commitment to make sure that the bond between the United States and Israel is unbreakable today, tomorrow and forever. . . I will implement a Memorandum of Understanding that provides $30 billion in assistance to Israel over the next decade. (which is less than it receives now - Ed). . . The Iranian regime is pursuing a nuclear capability and its president denies the Holocaust. (So what? BN). . . Full story: npr.org
Methodology of Global Takeover
May 27, 2008 Regarding the global uranium business, the international bankers located within the ancient Roman "City of London" have decided that: if you control the food, you control the nation, if you control the energy, you control a region, and if you control money, you control the whole world. The City of London international bankers are the descendants of the Merchants of Venice, who are descended from those who controlled the Roman, Egyptian, and Mesopotamian empires. They invented the concept of a corporation to relieve themselves of any liability for their actions. . .
In fact 9/11 was carried out by M16, the CIA, and Mossad (intelligence agencies of England, the US and Israel) (on behalf of the Committee of 300 ETK). 9/11 gave the ruling elite justification to repeal our Bill of Rights in the Patriot Act and Domestic Military Authorization Act (that eradicated posse comitatus), their wars in the Middle East. What do Kazakhstan and Afghanistan have in common? Lots of uranium. The ruling elite now have their eye on Siberia for its abundant oil and natural gas.

Global Cooling is Coming!
Take away the intense politics surrounding the global warming debate. Take away the self-interest groups, business interests, legal, bureaucratic and mass media influences that all seek to make a buck out of driving public hysteria over the fads and fashions of the age.
Pure sciencegiven the history of cyclical changes in the Earth's temperaturesreveals that man has little influence on the overall surface temperature of the Earth. Man's influence on temperature is localized at best. Scientists all agree that the greatest single driver of Earth's climate is the sun, the source of our Earth's energy. . . The problem with the global warmists is that the theories of their politicized pseudo-science do not match the more exact science of those responsible for accurate measurement of global temperatures. Ocean temperatures are these days measured by 3,000 automated Argos buoys deployed in the seas. These buoys present a challenge to global warmers. "The Argos buoys have disappointed the global warm-mongers in that they have failed to detect any signs of imminent climate change. As Dr. Josh Willis, who works for NASA in its Jet Propulsion Laboratory, noted in an interview with National Public Radio, 'there has been a very slight cooling' over the buoys' five years of observation, but that drop was 'not anything really significant.' Certainly not enough to shut down the Gulf Stream" (Brookesnews.com, March 31). Added to this challenge to the global warming theorists is the evidence produced by NASA's eight weather satellites. "In contrast to some 7,000 land-based stations, they take more than 300,000 temperature readings daily over the surface of the Earth. In 30 years of operation, the satellites have recorded a warming trend of just 0.14 degrees Celsiuswell within the range of normal variations" (ibid.). . .

Christian Preachers face Arrest in Birmingham
June 2, 2008 The preachers, both ministers in Birmingham, were handing out leaflets on Alum Rock Road in February when they started talking to four Asian youths. A police community support officer (PCSO) interrupted the conversation and began questioning the ministers about their beliefs. . .
"He said we were in a Muslim area and were not allowed to spread our Christian message. He said we were committing a hate crime by telling the youths to leave Islam and said that he was going to take us to the police station". . . The ministers claim he also advised them not to return to the area. As he walked away, the PCSO said: "You have been warned. If you come back here and get beaten up, well you have been warned".

It is Written
Christ came that He might restore the face to face fellowship God and man shared in the Garden of Eden by calling a Word Bride back to "It is written." Now His end-time Bride is resting, listening to the voice of the Archangel within her heart whisper His secrets, placing the Message from Genesis to Revelation and disposing of theological guesswork that has a form of godliness but denies the authority of THUS SAITH THE LORD.
God is dealing with individuals, not groups. Once he dealt with individuals within the circle of the present Truth called "the nation of Israel," today He is dealing with individuals within the circle of the present Truth called "the Message." God is not redeeming systems of political, religious or corporate government, cultural or social forms, but elect individualsone here, one there, and only a "little flock" all told.
God is omniscient. He is not now learning, nor is He taking counsel even with Himself, nor is He at any time adding to His knowledge. He has never had a new thought about anything because all His thoughts He has always had and always will have. He knows the end from the beginning because He is God. Thus the thoughts of God are eternal, they are real. Before creation He foreknew each of His elect so we are a finite number. There will never be one more, or one less. Jesus said, "All that the Father has given Me shall come to Me; and he who comes to Me I will in no way cast out." Clearly, since the number of His elect was settled from the foundation of the world and He has been calling for six thousand years, the vast majority of those predestinated to be saints have been called. This explains why there are so few Christians anywhere in the world today.
You see, God has only one place provided in which He will meet the worshipper, and that is in the Word He has promised to and is fulfilling in this day. Deuteronomy 16:5-6, "You may not sacrifice the Passover within any of the towns which the Lord your God will be giving you; but at the place which the Lord your God shall choose as the dwelling place for His Name, there you shall sacrifice the Passover at sundown, at the season of your exodus from Egypt".
God only meets man under the blood of His appointed sacrifice and in His provided place. For Israel, God's provided place of meeting was at His Temple or dwelling place in Jerusalem under the blood of the substitute natural lamb. For Christians it is in Christ where He dwells in the Truth predestinated to this present hournot in the Word for the days of Luther, Wesley, or the Pentecostals. Their saints recognized their part of the Word and took their positions in the Body. We must walk in the Light God is manifesting now by recognizing our day and it's Message and become written epistles of the present Truth for our day (I John 1:7).
If we do not understand what God said He would do in this hour we are presuming to act in His Name without Scriptural authority. And without faith we will not know what should take place in this hour and cannot serve His purpose. We can only confront the challenges of the hour and please God if we meet them in the certainty of faith. Jesus said, "These signs will follow them that believe" and act under the inspiration of faith (Mark 16:17).
Matthew 7:21-23, "Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and in Your Name cast out demons, and in Your Name done many wonderful works? Then I will frankly tell them, I never knew you [as among My elect]: depart from Me, you who work iniquity".
Iniquity is wickednessit is the hypocrisy of doing what you know to be evil. Those who know the will of God walk by faith not by sight, speak only what they hear by revelation from Above and do only what they see in a vision, dream or Scriptural revelation. Those who venture by blind hope in their own authority are led by emotion and reasoning.
People say, "I don't want to miss the rapture." But if they are not in the rapture as I write, they have almost certainly "missed the rapture" already. The rapture commenced in 1963 with the revelation of the Seven Seals; it is a threefold PROCESS of the revelation of the "shout" of the Message of the Prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7 awakening the wise and foolish virgin from spiritual slumber, calling, "Come out of Babylon and be filled with the Spirit" (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4). This Message separates the wise and foolish virgin from the world church system and quickens the wise virgin to new birth. Next the "Voice of [Christ] the Archangel" indwelling their regenerated soul, places the Message from Genesis to Revelation to bring them to maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the great translation (I Thessalonians 4:16; Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19). The final stage of the "rapture" will not take place until after Israel's Seventh "Trump" sounds the opening of the Sixth Seal and the pouring out of the Seventh Vial at the close of the Gentile dispensation.
Everyone who has examined Brother Branham's Message in any detail will know when the Gentile dispensation has ended because Los Angeles and 1,500x300-400 miles of California and the US continental shelf will sink beneath the Pacific. At this point, Satan will be cast down to earth to incarnate the pope, and there will never be another soul redeemed, Gentile or Israelite. The "Trump" will call the resurrection of the Church Age saints and the manifestation of the Sons of God in "we who are alive and remain." This will not be a public display of the Supernatural. The resurrected saints will be unseen by the world and only appear to us at the end of the manifestation of the Sons of God to supercharge our faith in order that we may change this corruptible flesh to incorruption. Over the preceding seven weeks we will be despised and hated for our testimony, hunted and persecuted by the establishment in a time of global catastrophe unprecedented since the Great Flood, but the Lord will employ our extremities to draw us into the harmony of perfect union by the exercise of faith to furnish our needs to the intent that we might fulfill Paul's prayer of Ephesians 1:17-20:
"That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Himself: the eyes of your understanding being enlightened, so that you may know what is the hope to which He has called you, and realize what is the inestimable riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, (which is being accomplished by the "shout and the Voice of the Archangel"), and appreciate the immeasurable greatness of His power working in us who believe Him. It is the same mighty resurrection power which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead, and made him to sit at His own right hand in the heavenly places." This will be accomplished after the "Trump" by the 'third pull' in the manifestation of the Sons of God when what we say God will do, instilling faith in us for translation grace, which will work God's "resurrection power" in us as it did in Jesus.
So the secret, sudden "rapture" is a PROCESS that is developing faith in you to transform your corruptible flesh into a renewed, glorified body. This process commences with the regeneration of your soul by three distinct steps of grace through faith: justification, sanctification and the baptism with the Holy Spirit which make you, your soul, a new creation with Christ in God which is the guarantee of a new body (Ephesians 4:30; Colossians 3:3). Hereafter you must not emulate the tastes, behavior and customs of this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind that you may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2). Faith places the Kingdom of God, which consists of the revealed Word of God, in us. It can only live through us as we are transformed by bringing our mind or mortal spirit to renewal, which in its turn brings our body subject to the Word and will of God written in our lives, and known and read by all who see us. Hereby we fulfill God's commandment to be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it (Genesis 1:28).
Until faith subdues and has dominion over your personal hundredweight of clay you cannot "present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service" (Romans 12:1). Judgment must begin at the house of God whose house you are if His Spirit dwells in you, so the Kingdom of God commences with "home rule".
"Faith is the confident assurance of the actual existence of things hoped for, the conviction of unseen realities. . ." confirmed by God's Word from Genesis to Revelation (Hebrews 11:3). Faith is something you know that you know that you know and can establish in the Bible without controversy. Faith is beyond belief which can be blind, and is not hope but the foundation upon which sound hope rests. Faith, if it is faith, is infallible, invincible and must come to pass. Faith is what you require in order to change in the atoms.
Faith is not determined positive thinking; neither is it willing a certain something into being, which would be self-works. Faith is a clear understanding of the mind of God in confident assurance He will realize His plan, purpose and foreknowledge as revealed, and resting expectantly in that knowledge. Therefore it is not you working, but "God working within you to will and to work His good pleasure" (Philippians 2:13) and cannot fail to come to pass.
I Corinthians 13:9-13, "From Pentecost to the close of the Laodicean Church Age the saints' knowledge of God's Word was fragmentary as was their prophesying, (because the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals from the foundation of the world Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 5:1-7; 10:4, 7). But when the fullness of the Word is unfolded through the revelation of the Seven Seals, then PART-Word and Christ's mediation for ignorance will be done away." (This transpired in March, 1963).
"When the Body was growing from infancy to maturity the saints spoke, thought and reasoned like children in the faith: but as it grew to maturity the members of Christ's Capstone Bride gave up these childish ways (as the revelation of the Seven Seals led from partial realization to perfect realization. Whereas while the Book was sealed the Church Age saints had seen the faith indistinctly as if peering at its reflection in a polished copper mirror used in old times, we understand as completely as we are understood Hebrews 4:12). And now three things will forever continue to be present [in opposition to prophecies, tongues and knowledge which will pass away]faith, hope, and brotherly love; but the greatest of these is love".
Love is the ultimate objective of grace, for God is love (I John 4:8) and love is the virtue represented by Christ in union with His end-time Bride in the Capstone of the pyramid. Love embraces all of the other seven virtues in the stature of the perfect Man. If you dwell in love, you dwell in God, for God is love. They who abide in God live in love. Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; is not irritable or resentful; it takes no pleasure in injustice but sides with truth. It bears everything in silence, has unquenchable faith, hopes under all circumstances, and endures without limit. Love never comes to an end and after all other gifts have passed away, love will abide forever.
God's children are born of His love, not sexual lust. He plants the Seed of His Life within our soul by the foolishness of preaching. Maybe your grandparents, parents, a Sunday school or class teacher who sowed the seed that lay dormant for five, ten or sixty years until your eyes or ears received further seed which, like the elusive clue in a crossword puzzle quickened the potential energy of that dormant original seed to kinetic energy by introducing meaning and new Life as described in Newsletter 499.
God has built the Body of Christ "precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little revelation, and there a little further revelation," but the revelation that brought eternal Life in one Age, although it must be received as an integral part of the structure is no more than potential energy in succeeding Ages without the kinetic energy of the revelation of the present Truth to quicken it to Life. This explains why the Messages of Martin Luther, Wesley or the Pentecostals, although essential, cannot bring the most sanctified soul to eternal Life in this day in which God has delivered the kinetic energy of the revelation of the Seven Seals.
God's Word activated by faith in His elect transforms His expressed thoughts from partial realization to perfect realization transforming His spoken Word from understanding in their hearts to material reality.
When Peter exhorted, "Repent and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out in order that the times of refreshing may come [to you] from the Presence of the Lord." He was speaking of the baptism with the Holy Ghost or new birth during the dispensations of PART-Word when the Book was sealed and Christ was a Mediator, which would entitle the "doers" to partake the thousand years of peace, prosperity and joy when the Kingdom is restored to Israel.
"And that He may send back Jesus, the Messiah who was appointed unto Israel: whom the heaven must receive until the times wherein all things will be restored which God has spoken by the mouth of His holy prophets since the world began." This was fulfilled for the Church in 1963 when "the mystery of God, as He has declared to His servants the prophets, was finished" through the ministry of Brother Branham (Revelation 10:7). The fullness of the Word is Christ, the Creator and Sustainer of all things (Colossians 1:15-19). The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Him back to earth in W_O_R_D form through the mouth of His Prophet. Thus Brother Branham introduced Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming. And after Israel's two prophets introduce His 'parousia' Coming in the fullness of the Word to the 144,000 elect Israelites, God will usher in the millennium wherein His physical creation will be restored and together with the glorified saints of all Ages, Jesus will step out on the atomic ashes of the wicked.
"For Moses has said, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you out of your brethren, like me; Him shall you hear in whatever He says."
Moses was referring to Jesus Messiah the God-Prophet who said in Matthew 17:1-11, "The Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6 truly will come before My glorified physical (or Gk. 'erchomai') return, preceded by the ministry of two Hebrew prophets (Zechariah 4; Revelation 11), and he will restore the apostolic faith." So from our post-Seals perspective we know that this prophet was neither Jesus nor John the Baptist, the Elijah of Malachi 3:1 who restored nothing but "laid the ax to the root of all trees" or cut down and tore up all man-made spiritual principles of his day, and if we understand what the Prophet Jesus has promised, we will receive the ministry of the prophet William Branham.
"And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet [William Branham], will be destroyed from among the people." Or cast into the tribulation with the foolish virgin (Malachi 4:6; Matthew 25:30; Revelation 22:18-19).
The diagram of the stature of the perfect Man (above) illustrates how almost all of the elect have already come into Christ since the inauguration of the Church on the day of Pentecost, until today the righteous seed has just about run out: the churches are apostate, and that when the last "rainbow trout" receives the Message of the hour we can all go Home. If you imagine a cube rising from the foundation of the elect Church to the Capstone as the church world from which the elect have been hewn by the foolishness of preaching, in comparison to the Capstone Bride it is plain to see Christendom is in apostasy today.
In Matthew 13 Jesus told seven parables each pertaining to one of the Church Ages. The first four were spoken in the hearing of the mixed multitude; after He had dismissed them He explained the parable of the wheat and the tares and recited the last three parables to the twelve alone (Luke 8:10). His seventh parable describes Laodicea; not the Age so much as the spirit of "people's rights" or Judaeo-Communism that pervades the world and from whose Luciferian grasp you can escape only by being baptized into Christ through this end-time Message.
Matthew 13:47-50: "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a large drag-net, (as distinguished from a casting-net, drawing everything after it, suffering nothing to escape the Message of the Gospel sent to draw "whomsoever will"). It was cast into the sea (signifying the multitude of humanity) and gathered of every kind" (or race as Brother Branham indicated in his exposition of Hebrews wherein he compared Esau, who married into Cain's race, with nominal Christians of today who have despised the birthright, and turning from the truth to fables joined with the spiritual and physical Serpent's seed to come to their place on no more repentance II Timothy 4:4; Matthew 24:37; Hebrews 12:16-17).
"When the net was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away."
This separation could not be made until the last elect predestinated to the Laodicean Church Age was redeemed, Christ's Mediation accomplished, Revelation 4, 5 and 10:1-7 fulfilled, and the revelation of the Seven Seals had brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form (I Corinthians 13:10; I Thessalonians 4:14-16; Jude 14-15). He is no longer in the Office of Son of God and Mediator but Son of man and Judge (John 5:27), calling His end-time Bride out from all churches by the fullness of the Word in the third exodus, corresponding to the "tares" of the other parable. THUS SAITH THE LORD in the "shout" of the revelation of the Seven Seals is separating the "wise virgin" or "rainbow trout" of Brother Branham's vision from the "bad" fish which are "cast away" to "it is written" (Matthew 25:5; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:4).
"So will it be at the end of the [Laodicean Church] age: the angels shall come forth, and separate the wicked from the righteous. And will cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth [in the tribulation]."
The "angels" are the seven portions of the Spirit (Revelation 4:5) that anointed each of the seven Church Age Messengers to deliver the Word predestinated to baptize the saints of each Age into their position in the Body. As Jesus indicated in verses 39-41, the seven portions united into the fullness of the Spirit to unveil the fullness of the Word, which is Christ. As Brother Branham explained, "the Elijah of this day is the Lord Jesus Christ. He is to come according to Luke 17:30. It says the Son of man is to reveal Himself among His people. Not a man, God! But it'll come through a prophet" (Trying to do God a Service without it being His Will, p. 33:212).
This was signified by the Cloud of glory prophesied in Daniel 7:9, Acts 1:11, Revelation 1:7, in the Gospels, and from the pulpit by Brother Branham in December, 1962, which manifest over Sunset Mountain, Arizona, on February 28, 1963. In all the scientific papers and articles describing this phenomenon no scientific explanation has been forthcoming. Jesus said, "When these things begin to come to pass, then look up, for your redemption draws nigh." Matthew 13:51-58, "Jesus asked, have you understood all this? They replied, Yes. Then He added, Therefore every experienced elder in the faith is like a householder who brings forth out of his storeroom new things and old".
The shadows and types of the Old Testament and history are brought to Life by and confirm the revelation of the New, which is the substance or perfect realization of the promise that cast the shadow of partial realization reported by Moses and the prophets of the Old. Faith, if it is faith, will agree with Scripture from Genesis to Revelation.
"And when Jesus had finished these parables, He departed, and coming to His own home town of Nazareth (Mark 6:1), He taught them in their synagogue in such a way that they were amazed, and said, Whence did this Man get this wisdom, and these mighty works? Is this not the carpenter? Is not His mother called Mary, and His brothers James and Joses, Simon, and Judas? And are not all His sisters with us? Where then did this Man get all this?"
"And they took offence in him. But Jesus said unto them, a prophet is not without honour, except in his own town and house. And because of their unbelief He could not do many mighty works there".
Brother Branham's ministry revealed "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever" in fulfillment of Luke 17:28-30, the last sign promised to us Gentiles before the close of our dispensation. As a consequence he frequently experienced this impasse of unbelief. Verses 51-58 are a warning to you and I as they also speak of the spiritual state of the post Church Age world and demonstrate how the hostility of our families and neighbours toward the faith, although they regard themselves as Christians, will be inflamed once the sinking of Los Angeles engulfs the world in fear, causing men's hearts to fail in apprehension of atomic warfare, tsunamis, and further catastrophes that are about to take place (Luke 21:25-26; Revelation 6:12-17). Why because "It is written," and the world is again falling apart. nl530.htm
