Bible Believers' Newsletter 549
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
A special greeting to our Brethren is the USSA. The Wall Street thugs who financed the Judaeo-Communist takeover of Russia in 1917 have openly communized America; and having rejected her last opportunity for national repentance in 1956/7, Rome's (once) Protestant image, the USSA, will shortly unite with the Catholic church and the proprietors of the Federal Reserve who have transformed Americans into motherless broke tax slaves.
Former Kansas State Trooper and Marshal Greg Everson correctly states: "The United States of America as [a tyrannical, fascist corporation masquerading as a de jure government Ed], an incorporated entity with a corporate CIA, IRS, and a private central bank, has planned for this day. The people who have controlled the affairs and the destiny of this nation have planned well. They have provided for themselves with many miles of massive reinforced and stockpiled underground shelters, and built over 600 detention camps for those of us who have constantly warned of this day. The government of the US will silence those that would have otherwise been vindicated in their Paul Revere roles. Even though the military and police agencies will be called upon to round up the real patriots, they know that Americans now realize that it is the GOVERNMENT and their agents who are the domestic enemies referred to in our Declaration of Independence. This hateful group of plotters, who have stolen America and ravaged the soul of this nation, cannot stand the thought of their dirty rotten schemes being revealed to the light of dayso they will attempt to give the coup de grace to patriots who kept stating the obvious to those who would listen and prepare. . ."
Israel is a type of the church and the United States. The Lord warned Israel in the prophecy of Isaiah 6:8-13, and He has warned us Gentiles in the same Scripture and in the prophecies of Brother Branham.
Famine, food shortages, race riots, and when export orders dry up at year's end, the economies of China and Japan will join a global depression. Truly, when the earthquakes sink Los Angeles and cleave the Mount of Olives, "men's hearts shall fail them for fear in apprehension of those things that are coming upon the earth".
The world's dual citizen banksters have privatized public assets or hijacked control of essential non-profit utilities into for-profit public-private partnerships and commoditized everything from rain to DNA, plants, and by taxing atmospheric CO2, even the air we breathe, in their desperation to create money that will pay interest to maintain their Babylonian fractional reserve banking that must one day collapse under the weight of exponential debt.
The monetary system will crash with the US dollar when Los Angeles sinks beneath the Pacific. The banksters will be given a reprieve in partnership with the Roman Catholic church who will refinance the US dollar with gold backing (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17:12-18). However, three and a half years later with the depression behind them and stability restored to the world economy and monetary system, Rome will break her agreement with the usurers and their mutual enmity will bring a persecution upon Jews in general, and because the world is convinced of the lie that Jews are the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, fanaticism will lead to the martyrdom of the 144,000 elect Israelites (Revelation 6:11) and the rebellion of the Black Nobility against their erstwhile ally will lead to the utter devastation of Vatican City State and the United States, ushering in the battle of Armageddon and the consummation of life.
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.
Three Questions the Government doesn't want You to ask about the Financial Crisis. And Three Shocking Answers!
1. Didn't Congress create the Federal Housing Authority, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Ginnie Mae and the Federal Home Loan Banks for the purpose of helping the public buy homes?
What happened is that clever businessmen schemed with members of Congress to create privileged lending institutions so they could get rich off the public's labor. In return, members of Congress got big campaign contributions from the privileged corporations and, as a bonus, even more votes. The public's welfare had nothing to do with it.
2. Who cares if a bank goes under? Won't the FDIC protect depositors?
The FDIC is not funded well enough to bail out even a handful of the biggest banks in America. . . The FDIC, as history will ultimately demonstrate, causes banks to fail. . . Remember, every government program ultimately brings about the opposite of the stated goal, and the FDIC is no exception.
3. Who are the "homeowners"?
Everywhere you turn, news articles are discussing how Congress, the President and the Fed are taking action to "help homeowners". . . The homeowners in question are not the residents of the houses. The homeowners are banks. . .

Comment: Do You REALLY Understand the Banking Crisis?. Like the Jewish Weimar Republic in Germany, and Zimbabwe with inflation running at 2.7 million percent per annum, the United States is trying to print its way out of trouble.
Goldman Sachs Bribed Senate to pass Bailout
How much bribe money does it take to transfer $700 Billion taxpayer dollars to Wall Street's elite? Here is the complete contribution list. Contributing author Paul Craig Roberts says, "The Paulson bailout saves his firm, Goldman Sachs. The Paulson bailout transfers the troubled financial instruments that the financial sector created from the books of the financial sector to the books of the taxpayers at the US Treasury.
This is all the bailout does. It rescues the guilty. The Paulson bailout does not address the problem, which is the defaulting home mortgages. Full story: counterpunch.org
Comment: The leader of the Federal Opposition in Australia's Hegelian sham democracy is ex-Chairman and CEO of (Rothschild's) Goldman Sachs while our glib tongued PM has played the hand of the 'city of London' by guaranteeing deposits in Rothschild's Commonwealth, ANZ and Rockefeller-Westpac banks with public monies instead of regulation. He has in reality guaranteed Australia will join the jolly romp which the Prophet said will be worse than the Great Depression and lead to Lucifer's totalitarian one world government (BIS Quarterly Review, September 2008 Statistical Annex, take note of the outstanding derivatives).
Representatives threatened with 'Martial Law' if Bailout Bill did not Pass
October 4, 1008 During his speaking time on Thursday, Congressman Sherman stated explicitly, "Many of us were told in private conversations, that if we didn't pass this bill on Monday, the sky would fall, the market would drop two or three thousand points, another couple thousand the second day, and a few members were even told that there would be Martial Law in America if we voted no (to the bailout bill)."
Earlier this week, Congressman Michael C. Burgess from the 26th District of Texas, went public on Monday stating live on Infowars nationwide radio broadcast, that House speaker Nancy Pelosi had declared House Rule 136A, effectively putting the House under "Martial Law" rules, a dictatorial measure only activated during times of national emergency.
Physical Martial law may be invoked by the President of the United States in case of any deemed "state of emergency". Martial Law has not been put into practice since Lincoln, when several Congressmen were arrested or put under house arrest. In 1878, Congress passed the Posse Comitatus Act, which forbids military involvement in domestic law enforcement without congressional approval. However, both the Military Commissions Act of 2006 and USNORTHCOM has increased its direct involvement with US civilian administration. Additionally, the John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007, and President Bush's recent PD51 may possibly rescind previous limits by suspending Government as well as other Constitutional guarantees such as habeas corpus. . .

Comment: Such emergency is "any incident . . . that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the US population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions." Obviously something is planned or the USSA would not have 800 staffed internment camps, each accommodating 20,000, and one in Alaska able to accommodate two million "dissidents."
States, Economies and Markets: Redefining the Rules
October 13, 2008 Accounting rules have required that assets be "marked to market," that is, evaluated according to their current market valuewhich in the current environment is not very generous, to say the least. Many want to abolish "mark to market" valuation and replace it with something based on the underlying value of the asset, which would be more generous. The problem with this theory is that, while it might create healthier balance sheets, financial institutions don't trust anyone's balance sheet at the moment. Revaluing assets on paper will not comfort anyone. Trust is in very short supply, and there are no bookkeeping tricks to get people to lend to borrowers they don't trust. No one is going to say once the balance sheet is revalued, "well, you sure are better off than yesterday, here is a hundred million dollars."
The question therefore is how to get financial institutions to trust each other again when they feel they have no reason to do so. The solution is to have someone trustworthy guarantee the loan. The eurozone solution announced October 12 was straightforward. They intended to have governments directly guarantee loans between financial institutions. Given the sovereign power to tax and to print money, the assumption wasreasonable in our mindthat it would take risk out of lending, and motivate financial institutions to make loans.
The problem with this, of course, is that there are a lot of institutions who will want to borrow a lot of money. With the government guaranteeing the loans, financial institutions will be insensitive to the risk of the borrower. If there is no risk in the loan whatsoever, then banks will lend to anyone, knowing full well that they cannot lose a loan. Under these circumstances, the market would go completely haywire and the opportunities for corruption would be unprecedented.
Therefore, as part of the eurozone plan, there has to be a government process for the approval and disapproval of loans. Since the market is no longer functioning, the decision on who gets to borrow how much at what ratewith a government guaranteebecomes a government decision.
There are two problems with this. First, governments are terrible at allocating capital. Politics will rapidly intrude to shape decisions. Even if the government could be trusted to make every decision with maximum efficiency, no government has the administrative ability to manage the entire financial sector so directly. Second, having taken control of interbank finance, how do you maintain a free market in the rest of the financial system? Will the government jump into guaranteeing non-interbank loans to ensure that banks actually lend money to those who need it? Otherwise the banking system could be liquid, but the rest of the economy might remain in crisis. Once the foundation of the financial system is nationalized, the entire edifice rests on the nationalized system.
The prime virtue of this plan is that it ought to work, at least in the short run. Financial institutions should start lending to each other, at whatever rate and in whatever amounts the government dictates and the gridlock should dissolve. The government will have to dive in to regulate the system for a while but hopefullyand this is the betin due course the government can unwind its involvement and ease the system back to some sort of market. The tentative date for that unwinding is the end of 2009. The risk is that the distortions of the system could become so intense after a few months that unwinding would become impossible. But that is a problem for later; the crisis needs to be addressed now. . .
The problem is administrative. It is all very well to say that the government will buy paper or stock in companies, or that it will guarantee loans between banks. The problem is that no institutions exist to do this. There are no offices filled with officials empowered to do any of these things, no rules on how these things are to be done, no bank accounts on which to drawnot even a decision on who has to sign the checks. The faster they try to set up these institutions, the more inefficient, error-prone and even corrupt they will turn out to be. We can assure you that some bright lads are already thinking dreamily of ways to scam the system, and the faster it is set up, the fewer controls there will be. . .

Castro: It's a 'Miracle' Obama is still alive
Havana, October 13, 2008 Former Cuban president Fidel Castro charged that American society was marked by "profound racism" and that it was a "pure miracle" that US presidential hopeful Barack Obama has not been assassinated... Full story: myway.com
Comment: The so-called "Bailout," followed last weekend by meetings with finance ministers of the G7 and G20 nations, the IMF and WB will drag whole world into the Banksters' plot to create Satan's Eden, also known as the NWO. Therefore, is the presidential race between a white Republican and a coloured Democrat designed to ignite a racial bloodbath that will distract from the Money Power's trap of Lucifer's totalitarian one world government ruled by a global central bank?
Meyer Amschel Rothschild of Germany once said: "Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws . . . enforced unemployment and hunger, imposed on the masses because of the power we have to create shortages of food, will create the right of Capital to rule more surely than it was given to the real aristocracy."
Speaking of world government he said, "It will be necessary to establish huge monopolies, reservoirs of such colossal riches that even the largest fortunes of the goiim will depend on us to such an extent that they will go to the bottom together with the credit of their governments on the day after the great political smash."
Today the five-pointed pentagram representing the five Rothschild brothers with their banks, which possess the greatest accumulation of wealth ever known, emblazons the flags of the United States, Russia and other subject nations. Can you say "Federal Reserve"?
Churchill knew Rothschild's plan to return society to serfdom by retarding industry and encouraging debt. So did President Carter who endorsed the Global 2000 and Global Future Reports which spell out US policy intent.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is the front organization and debt collector for Rothschild's heirs and kinsmen whom Brother Branham called "Wall Street crooks." The colonial troops of the United States will be their enforcers in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week other wise known as the New World Order.
In his account of the questioning of Christian G. Rakovsky, one of the Jewish founders of Soviet Judaeo-Communism, by Soviet foreign agent Gavriil Gavrillovitch (the French Jew Rene Duval), Dr. J. Landowsky records:
"The understanding of how the financial International has gradually, right up to our epoch, become the master of money, this magical talisman, which has become for people that which God and the nation had been formerly, is something which exceeds in scientific interest even the art of revolutionary strategy, since this is also an art and also a revolution. I shall explain it to you. Historiographers and the masses, blinded by the shouts and the pomp of the French revolution, the people, intoxicated by the fact that it had succeeded in taking all power from the King and the privileged classes, did not notice how a small group of mysterious, careful and insignificant people had taken possession of the real Royal power, the magical power, almost divine, which it obtained almost without knowing it. The masses did not notice that the power had been seized by others and that soon they had subjected them to a slavery more cruel than the King, since the latter, in view of his religious and moral prejudices, was incapable of taking advantage of such a power. So it came about that the supreme Royal power was taken over by persons, whose moral, intellectual and cosmopolitan qualities did allow them to use it. It is clear that these were people who had never been Christians, but cosmopolitans."
"They had acquired for themselves the real privilege of coining money. . . It is clear that in your imagination there immediately appeared pictures of real money of metal and paper. But that is not so. Money is now not that, real circulating coin is a true anachronism. If it still exists and circulates, then it is only thanks to atavism, only because it is convenient to maintain the illusion, a purely imaginary fiction for the present day. . ." (See Newsletter 433).
Brother Branham prophesied a race war in the United States as a legacy of the Communist adulterer and plagiarist minister, Michael (alias Martin Luther) King. Will the cancellation of the presidential election and failure of the Obama campaign, which has a 14% lead over McCain, precipitate racial violence? With US unemployment currently at 14.7%, inflation at 13.2% and negative GDP, you can bet this is the intent of the usurers seeking to divert attention from their work of global impoverishment.
Speaking against the racial integration that was forced by the military in US schools and universities under the Kennedy Administration during the '60s, Brother Branham said, "I don't think the Holy Spirit's agreeing with him [Martin Luther King] at all on that. It's got the people all worked up in a bunch of ballyhoo. You see? Just like Hitler did over in Germany, led them right into a death trap, them precious Germans; and they laid by the millions, piled up there on top of one another. That's exactly the same thing, and remember I'm on tape; you'll see it maybe after I'm gone."
"That's exactly what's going to happen. Them precious people will die down there like flies. Starts a revolutionary, both white and colored will fight again and die like flies. And what you got when it's all over? A bunch of dead people" (The Third Exodus, p. 24:1-2; And Knoweth It Not, p. 37:2).
9/11 Truth Nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize 2008
In recent years, the 9/11 Truth Movement and their outstanding academic Dr. David Ray Griffin presented strong evidence that the attacks of 11 September were not carried out by Islamist terrorists, as we have been told, but by a US 'war elite' as an excuse to go to war against Afghanistan and Iraq (wars that were already approved). David Ray Griffin and the 9/11 Truth Movement have presented convincing evidence showing that this 'war elite' carried out these attacks to establish a new enemy after the Cold War, and to start wars in line with their economic and political interests. We believe the most important contribution to peace in the 21st century is the disclosure of these elite political games and the removal of the false reasons for its aggressive wars. This Griffin and the 9/11 Truth Movement has done in an excellent way. . .
Since 2001, the major mass mediathe major newspapers, TV channels and news agencieshave been instruments of war propaganda. While more and more academics, military officers and intelligence analysts presented a growing amount of evidence that 9/11-attacks against New York and Washington were carried out by people inside the United States system, this information was not reported by the mainstream media. Despite the fact that almost 50% of the US population is skeptical of the official version of 11 September, the mass media has not presented the background for this skepticism. The regular mass media's inability to safeguard their democratic responsibilities have forced the 9/11 Truth Movement to put their information on the Internet. Despite the corruption in the regular mass media David Ray Griffin and the 9/11 Truth Movement have been able to present significant information that could have turned war to peace. This, as we understand it made them the most worthy candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize. . . Full story: indybay.org

Why the Peaceful Majority is Irrelevant
February, 2006 I used to know a man whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II. They owned a number of large industries and estates. I asked him how many German people were true Nazis, and the answer he gave has stuck with me and guided my attitude toward fanaticism ever since.
"Very few people were true Nazis," he said, "but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories."
We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant, meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectra of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.
The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and extraneous. This image illustrates a recent 'Religion of Peace Demonstration' in London.
Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people. The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet. And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?
History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.
Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that countsthe fanatics who threaten our way of life. (Paul E. Marek, March 18, 2007).
Comment: The question that has evaded the author is the identity of the people behind the scenes. Who paid Professor Baron Karl von Ritter to draft National Socialism and simultaneously paid Karl Marx to modernize Rothschild's plans for International Socialism with the objective of bringing them together in controlled conflict in World War II? Who was behind Moses Hess and Theodor Herzl's promotion of political Zionism with the objective of bring it into controlled conflict with Islam in World War III? This 'hidden hand' is behind capitalism, whose materialist objectiveabsolute control by a wealthy elite is identical with the goal of Communism, and the genocide of Russians, Germans, Chinese, Armenians, Assyrians, and doubtless behind the French who admit to the Rwandan Massacre, and also, according to the late Joe Vialls, the USSA.
Anyone with an ounce of the Spirit can see this entity is at "enmity" with the first and last Adam and their offspring (Genesis 3:15). Like its father Cain, it always work under another name and in a different occupation (Genesis 4:14). This anti-Islamic entity is provoking innocent Islam into World War III which it planned in the nineteenth century along with World Wars I and II. It rules Britain, the USSA, Australia and their political leaders trusted to solve the present credit and economic scam; men and women who have in fact sold their nations under serfdom to the Illuminati banksters. The Bible says that very soon its fanatical lust for power will resurrect Roman Catholicism which with her (once) Protestant churches will kill all who will not accept their doctrine or do Rome service (Revelation 13:15-18).
Isaiah: a Prophet from Time to Eternity
Israel is a type of the Church, therefore Isaiah 6 applies to apostasy of the world church system at the end of the Gentile dispensation as it applies to Israel's 2,500-year apostasy and her rebirth in one day after the Church has spent three and a half years at the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the Sky.
Isaiah 6:1-4, "In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphim: each one had six wings; with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called to another and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of His glory. And the posts of the door shook at the voice of the one calling, and the house was filled with smoke".
Like the denominations in the Laodicean Church Age which presume to be rich and in need of nothing, King Uzziah refused to receive correction and sought to assume the office of priest-king whereupon he was smitten with leprosy, a symbol of sin, and driven from the congregation of the saints like those who refuse the Message of God in Christ or Christ in Brother Branham (Malachi 4:6; Luke 3:23; Revelation 22:17-19).
When God commissioned Isaiah, He did not inform him of the content of the Message he was to declare so much as to make him conscious that not only will they refuse his Message, but that their refusal would harden their hearts as Moses' Message hardened Pharaoh's heart. When Isaiah asked the Lord how long His anger should last, he was told until Daniel's Seventieth Week at the close of the Gentile dispensation when only 144,000 elect Israelites would remain.
Although Christ's end-time Bride is au fait and at-one with the Message of the open Book so that not only our lips but also our lives testify its mystery, we are forewarned that ceaseless hearing yet fruitless understanding will be the corollary of our ceaseless but fruitless testimony to the souls imprisoned now both within and without the circle of this Message. For God concludes the Gentile people in unbelief as He did Israel (Romans 11:32).
It is as if the Lord has said, testify in hope, but not in the expectation of being understood by more than one in a million; speak conscious of the reality that your words will be neither understood nor regarded by the mass, and that when they are understood and regarded, they will more often than not serve to completely harden the heart of the hearer, thereby constituting a testimony and a basis of judgment against them.
Jesus always spoke to the people in parables so that His Message would penetrate the very soul of those able to receive a clear revelation of what He meant, separating them from the make-believers who learnt and memorized only the "letter" of what He said. But as He spoke in parables a certain measure of understanding and consequently responsibility would penetrate the hearers, causing them to choose whether to give belief or unbelief the upper hand. John 12:37-43 tells us that even the miracles of Jesus touched many Israelites personally did not produce faith as susceptibility was wanting. And that for fear of being excommunicated by the Pharisees, those among the Sanhedrin who believed intellectually (excluding Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathaea) did not confess their belief for "they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God" so belief could not ripen to faith.
God told Brother Branham, Do not explain the 'third pull,' which is the opening of the written Word, for it is a revelation to God's elect. And no matter how clearly one expounds his Message, proving it with God's Bible from Genesis to Revelation; many within the circle of believers will quote the "letter" of his Message to dispute the revelation of God's Word. Although "the Lord is not . . . willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" (II Peter 3:9), He placed each of us on the basis of free moral agency in order to separate His own, and through human reasoning the Devil hardens the heart, deafens the ear and shuts up the eyes of those disinclined to become one with His Word.
The last sign Jesus promised us Gentiles before the great and dreadful day of the Lord was the revelation of the Son of man "as it was in the days of Lot" when God veiled Himself behind the flesh of a created Man and discerned the thoughts and intents of Abraham and Sarah's hearts (Luke 17:28-30; Genesis 18; Hebrews 4:12). Next He veiled Himself behind the virgin-born flesh of Jesus Christ, revealing Himself by the same sign and doing many miracles as we read in John 12:37. In these last days God has veiled Himself behind the flesh of William Branham, a sinner saved by grace, and revealed "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever," discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart, raising the dead, restoring sight to the blind, casting out demons, and healing all manner of sickness and disease. And as it was in the days of His flesh, the people were blessed yet they did not believe and when the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in WORD form the denominational Pharisees put Him outside their church door.
Isaiah "saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple." However, "No man has seen God at any time [because He is a Spirit without bodily form]; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father has made Him known" (John 1:18). Isaiah saw the glory of Jesus, "the Lord of glory," whose "train" is the Bride of all Ages (John 12:41; I Corinthians 2:8; James 2:1). The glory of God is Jesus, and the glory of Christ is His Bride (John 17:21-26; Romans 8:30; I Corinthians 11:3, 7; Ephesians 5:22-32). When God, the Father of glory gave birth to the Logos He expressed the fullness of His Attributes in the visible form of a Pillar of Light which is the Shekinah or Presence of God, "the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord . . . the beginning of the creation of God" which subsequently manifest in the virgin born flesh of our kinsman Redeemer.
As John 1 explains, before creation God was alone with His eternal thoughts, before they manifest as the Logos, "thought in speech" or Word, visible as Supernatural Light. John was a man sent from God to bear witness of that Light manifest in the flesh of Jesus Messiah. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." God is not a man that He should lie or the son of man that He should repent; God is a Spirit, not any second or third person of a Babylonian trinity but One Holy Spirit, just as you, your soul, is one spirit and the Devil is one spirit. God is the eternal Holy Spirit. He is omnipotent and omniscient, however as a Being He cannot be omnipresent any more than you as a spirit being can be in more than one place at any one time, but being all-knowing is as if he were omnipresent. In Acts 28:25-31 Paul said the Holy Spirit spoke the Words of Isaiah 6:8-13, which he quoted, to establish that Israel's apostasy through their insusceptibility to the Gospel was a vindication of His prophet Isaiah.
The Word or Logos is the expression of all the unchanging God is, was, or ever will be. God's Word is Spirit in a form we can receive by faith; this explains how the Holy Spirit can be in me in Currabubula, and simultaneously in you in Grove City, and in you in Karachi. The Bible is the story of God changing His form from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts to their transformation through faith in His spoken Word to the flesh of His glorified FamilyJesus Christ and the true ChurchHis Bride of all ages.
Jesus Christ was the Word before He was flesh: He is "the beginning of the creation of God" (Revelation 3:14). Not the beginning of God's creation, which is the Sun and the Moon and the rivers and trees, but the beginning of God creating Himself a part of creation. Eternity has neither beginning of days nor end of life, so if you have eternal Life you are one of God's Attributes foreknown in the Logos and will be baptized into His Body and manifest as a son in your designated and decreed season and time when "You are dead [to the world and the things of the world], and your [Gk. 'zoe' or eternal] Life is hid with Christ [the Logos] in God" (Colossians 3:3).
The elect are manifested Attributes of God's own Life that have been "hidden in the Logos from eternity with Christ in God." Speaking to the Logos wherein He foresaw and foreknew every man and women that ever will be, "God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon earth. [And in His great thinking] God created [all] of Adam's race in His own image, male and female." Those he foreknew as becoming written epistles of the Word for their day He predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. So each saint was potentially called, justified and already glorified before time or creation began. By foreknowledge His elect have existed in the Logos from eternity. We were always a part of God and can never be lost or cast aside. He has always seen us through the redeeming blood of Christ in sinless theophany which is the angelic form of our glorified appearance.
This explains redemption, which means "to buy back a possession that was lost" since the elect were already existing as Attributes in His eternal thinking, while the non-elect and even the Serpent's seed were simply foreknown. So when God said, let usthe eternal Spirit and the Logosmake man in our image and after our likeness He made Adam a spirit man or soul, then in Genesis 2 He formed and placed him into a body in the image of animal.
Long after creation was completed God separated woman as a byproduct of the man, "And God said, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth." He commanded them to overspread the earth so that He could deal with each person as an individual, for He has placed each one of us in on the basis of free moral agency.
God will not deal with an organization or group. Although He deals with Israel as a nation, He is dealing exclusively with an election of individuals out of the mass descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and living in the Promised Land. God is a separator, so it is as individuals that we are baptized with the Holy Ghost into the Kingdom.
Christ the Logos manifest as a theophany called the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden where Lucifer manifest as the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Having bypassed our theophany we are manifest in flesh to be tested and overcome by the Word of God and prayer so that our lives manifest the Word for our day. Having overcome, the Church Age saints are in their theophany in the Presence pending the first resurrection when they will return to put on their glorified bodies. After the manifestation of the Sons of God they will appear to supercharge our faith so we can change in the atoms without death.
The glory of God is Christ, high and lifted up to God's own throne which is heaven, for "All power in heaven and in earth is given unto Jesus Messiah . . . until He shall have put all God's enemies under His feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death" (Psalm 110:1; Matthew 28:18; I Corinthians 15:25-26; Revelation 3:21). But if Christ is "high and lifted up" so is His Bride as the two are one through the invisible marriage union. Paul prayed in Ephesians 1:17-23, "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 Him: the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, and the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power, which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: and has put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the Head over all things to the Church, which is His body, the fullness of Him that fills all in all".
"His train" is His Bride who is before God day and night and serves Him in His Temple. Indeed we are pillars of and integral with the Temple of God, which is Jesus Messiah, the Logos made flesh (John 2:19-21; Revelation 3:12; 7:9-17; 21:22-23). Furthermore, Christ's end-time Bride is caught up in the Spirit in Revelation 4:1 5:14 to see a later development of Isaiah's vision and the redeemed Church in theophany. We bear witness to the Pillar of Cloud that indicated the departure of the seraphim or sevenfold Spirit of God that anointed the messengers to the seven Church Ages, whose Messages in conjunction with Christ's mediation cleansed the hearts of the PART-Word saints (as the coal of Fire cleansed Isaiah), and signified Christ's imminent 'parousia' Coming (Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:4; 10:1-4).
Isaiah saw the end of the Gentile dispensation as the seraphim type the Church Age Messengers whose ministry cleanses the elect of their Age and offers them back to the Lord. Paul's ministry provided the incense of THUS SAITH THE LORD with which the saints of the Ephesian Church Age were sanctified, made acceptable and offered up to God, as Brother Branham's ministry, which restored the end-time Bride to the revelation of Paul and finished the mystery of God, was the "much incense" of THUS SAITH THE LORD, which added to the prayers or revelation of all saints makes the Body perfect (Romans 15:16; Revelation 5:8; 8:3-5).
The touching of Isaiah's lips with the coal of holy fire from the altar of incense is for the purpose of atonement as Christ's laying His hand upon John, who represents you and me, is for the purpose of imparting His strength in us through the revelation: "There is no need to fear. I am the first and the last, the Living One who died, and behold, I am alive for evermore, and I possess the keys of hell and of death" (Revelation 1:17-18). What is there to fear? The judgment that fell upon Him at the cross, at the grave, and when He descended, was for us. He absorbed the full brunt of the wound of sin. Romans 8:1, "There is therefore now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit".
Throughout the Book of Revelation, John represent's Christ's end-time Bride. We know this is so because the mystery of the Book was sealed from the foundation of the world. God revealed it to Christ after His ascension, and Christ revealed it to Brother Branham, the angel to the Seventh Church Age whom John saw and heard in the Patmos visions preaching these mysteries as Christ opened and revealed the Seals in 1963 (Revelation 1:1; 10:1-7). Like Isaiah, we see Christ in His Bride drawn out of all seven Church Ages standing in the midst of the golden lampstand (Revelation 1:8-20).
In Isaiah 6:4, "And the posts of the door moved at the voice of the seraph that cried, and the house was filled with smoke." From Israel's perspective, this points to the close of the sixty-ninth week of Daniel's prophecy, the beginning of the Gentile dispensation and Israel's seven Trumpet Judgments, for smoke is an antithesis to the Light in which the Lord dwells, signifying "partial blindness has come upon Israel, until the full number of the Gentiles come in" (Romans 11:25).
Under the Seventh Trumpet the smoke of God's wrath will clear for the 144,000 elect Israelites to receive a clear vision of Christ's renewed Presence with and favour toward Israel in Daniel's Seventieth Week as signified by the Old Testament symbols revealing the divine glory of Jesus Messiah, and the severity of God's wrath upon sinners.
Revelation 11:15-19, "The Seventh Trumpet angel sounded, and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdom of this world has become the Kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign forever and ever. And the twenty-four elders seated on their thrones before God, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, saying, We give You thanks, Lord God Almighty, who is and who was, because You have taken Your great power, and begun to reign. And the nations raged, and Your wrath has come, and the time for the dead to be judged, for rewarding your servants the prophets, and the saints, and them who fear Your Name, small and great; and for destroying those who are destroying the earth. And the temple of God in heaven was opened, and the ark of His covenant was seen within His temple: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail".
From the Gentile perspective Isaiah 6:4 represents the commencement of the Seven Vials of the Ordeal of Jealousy by which a temporary judgment is poured out upon the nominal church to separate and distinguish the "saved" non-elect from the impersonators (Revelation 15:5-16:21). Under the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial, the Gentile dispensation ends and Satan is cast out of heaven in a cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary to receive Christ's Bride for the Wedding Supper in the air.
According to Zechariah 14:6-8, toward the end of the Laodicean Church Age the days will be smoky so that "the Light shall be neither clear nor dark . . . but at evening time it shall be Light" through the revelation of the end-time Message. When Christ's mediation was fulfilled the Mercy Seat became a Judgment Seat, the sanctuary became smoky and with the revelation of the Seven Seals the full Word came into effect. There is mercy only under the Blood, that is, only in the end-time Bride who is the blood of Christ by the baptism of the Holy Ghost, for the Life is in the Blood. Romans 4:6-8, "Blessed is the man, to whom God imputes righteousness without works; Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin." Hence we must keep the Token on display, to sanctify all who come into our presence.
Earth is a mercy Seat so long as the Blood of Christ is here in the form of His Bride. The Presence of the Holy Spirit in us is all that restrains that man of sin, the son of perdition from revealing himself. He will be revealed after the Holy Spirit departs in the translation of Christ's end-time Bride following the first resurrection of the sleeping saints (II Thessalonians 2:6-9). Meanwhile, "Touch not My anointed, and do My prophets (Revelation 10:8-11) no harm" (Psalm 105:15).
After the Lord has foretold Israel's 2,500-year Spiritual blindness and apostasy, Isaiah asked, "Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities be waste without inhabitant, and houses without man, and the land is utterly desolate, and the Lord will have sent the people far away, and the forsaken sections of the land will be many. And though a tenth remains, it shall be consumed, as a terebinth or an oak, whose stump remains standing when it is felled. The holy seed is its stump".
The announcement of this judgment sounds absolute yet although Israel's apostate fanaticism was so gross it rent the mortal curtain veiling the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel from their profane gaze when the veil of His flesh was exposed, rivern on Calvary; it is not possible that the Lord should abrogate His promises of grace to the patriarchs. Israel has been struck with spiritual death by the enemy within and overthrown by non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews, yet a stump of genuine blood Israelites remains among whom the faith of Abraham will be found in but 144,000. If this is a tithe of the present mass, less than 1.5 million descendants of the pure blood of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is extant, living mainly in Muslim lands of the former Assyrian empire. However, over the past 2,000 years many genuine Israelitesnot Jews, who are generally unrelated to the patriarchs and have no part in God's Covenant with Israelhave sealed their salvation under the Fifth Seal, martyred for their testimony of the Commandments of God.
Employing the metaphor of an olive tree in Romans 11:15-16, Paul says, if God's repudiation of apostate Israel following their murder of Messiah has enabled His atonement to reach an election of Gentiles worldwide without their obstruction, their reception into the Kingdom of God will lead to their greater blessing with the Millennium with the restoration of the kingdom to Israel wherein the whole world is delivered from the bondage of corruption and glorified together with Christ (Romans 8:15-23; I Corinthians 15:35-56). His ground of reasoning in support of the race descended from the patriarchs is based on the heave offering of portion of the dough for the bread of firstfruits (Numbers 15:17-21). Paul says, "For if [Christ] the firstfruits of the resurrection is holy, the lump [of the harvest or New Testament Church baked into loaves and offered back to God] is also holy [for the consecration of the firstfruits in Christ's resurrection and glorification is the consecration of the whole lump]: and if the root [of patriarchal fathers Romans 9:4-5] is holy, so are the branches [their 144,000 elect offspring]".
Romans 11:21-27, "If God spared not the natural branches [of the pure blood of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob], neither will He spare you [non-Israelites]. Note then the kindness and severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen; but kindness to you, provided you continue in His kindness: otherwise you too will be cut off. And they, if they do not persist in their unbelief, will be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again. For if you have been cut from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and grafted, contrary to nature, into a cultivated olive tree: how much more readily will these natural branches be grafted into their own original tree?"
"Lest you should be wise in your own conceits, I want you to understand this mystery, Brethren, that partial blindness has come upon Israel [causing insensibility to the Gospel], until the full number of the Gentiles come in, and so all of Israel's elect will be born-again [in one day Isaiah 66:8]: as it is written, The Deliverer shall come out of Mount Zion, and turn away ungodliness from Jacob: for this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins".
So you see, Brethren, when God turns from we Gentiles to deal with Israel in Daniel's Seventieth Week, He will be dealing exclusively with an election living in the Promised Land who have grown from the root of the pure blood of the patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, NOT Jews, few of whom are even Semitic, let alone Hebrews who are Israelites. Those among the impersonators that are in Adam's race are frittering away their possibility of redemption by prolonging the deception for "they love the praise of men more than the praise of God". nl549.htm
