Bible Believers' Newsletter 682
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Resurrection blessings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
By grace alone we are able to meet in unity with the mind of the Lord. Our main article, "Gabriel, Michael, and Christ," is unusual in the understanding we present and also because it is supported by many quotations of the Prophet in addition to Scripture. However, you must not believe my words but prove all things personally in your own Bible because no true believer is any stronger and spiritually healthy and alive than his understanding of and adherence to the pure Word of God, which is the mind of God in you, eternal Life, peace and strength through certainty.
Build your life on the firm foundation of faith which bears the inscription, "The Lord knows those who are His." There is no hope for reformation and improvement in this world wherein the church and what were once regarded as Christian nations are now heathen cut throats and murderers that loot, rape and murder with impunity. Luther restored the foundational doctrine that man can only know, serve and please God by faith (Hebrews 11:6). We cannot serve or please God by being 'good'; God is NOT looking for 'good people' but believers with faith to receive the promises of His Word (Matthew 19:17). After Luther's revival the Germans turned to 'higher criticism'—human reasoning against the faith. John Wesley added the revelation of Spiritual holiness without which no man shall see God, and after His revival England became the cesspool it is today. God restored the gifts of the Spirit but the Laodicean Church Age chose material wealth and spiritual poverty such that when God anointed William Branham to restore the apostolic faith and introduce the second Coming of Christ, He was rejected (Revelation 3:17-20). Brother Branham ceased to pray for America which is doomed to destruction; he called her "the prostitute of the nations".
The alien leaders of our once Christian nations are adroit practitioners of the BIG LIE, a technique Adolf Hitler exposed and utterly denounced in Mein Kampf. Moses and Jesus called the Jews liars, yet our controlled media, school curricula and textbooks promote such massive fraud as respects history, the Jewish issue, racial differences, WWII, 9/11, the Holocaust, Hitler, Germany, and Jesus Christ, it is no wonder the world is going insane.
Contemporary society has replaced heroes with celebrities, intelligent inquiry with the search for a flat stomach, depth of character with world-pleasing images and personality; in the political process the make-up man is more important than the speech writer and we approach the polling booth not on the basis of "How would Jesus vote" but with an imagination full of populist images, emotions and slogans packed into hypocritical thirty-second sound bites force-fed to millions of bored, lonely, unthinking atomic fodder without Christ and without hope.
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
When War Games go live: "Staging" a "Humanitarian War"
April 16, 2011 — Military operations of this size and magnitude are never improvised. The war on Libya as well as the armed insurrection were planned months prior to the Arab protest movement. . . The war on Libya was known and decided well in advance. Military planning was in "an advanced stage of readiness." UN Security Council Resolution 1973 pertaining to Libya was already on the drawing board, months prior to the onset of the "pro-democracy" insurrection. . .
On November 2, 2010, more than four months prior to the onset of Operation Odyssey Dawn, France and the UK announced the conduct of war games under Operation "SOUTHERN MISTRAL 2011" against "AN IMAGINARY COUNTRY' called "SOUTHLAND", living under a "DICTATORSHIP" that allegedly "was responsible for an attack against France's national interests".
The Franco-British (humanitarian) air operation against "SOUTHLAND" was to be carried out pursuant to an IMAGINARY "UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION NO: 3003". The war games were scheduled to start on March 21, 2011. THESE FRANCO-BRITISH WAR GAMES NEVER TOOK PLACE. OPERATION "SOUTHERN MISTRAL" WENT LIVE ON MARCH 19, 2011 (two days prior to the scheduled date). Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: Again we see the tried and proven formula employed in the USS Maine, Pearl Harbour, the attack on the USS Liberty, Gulf of Tonkin, Australia's Port Arthur Massacre, 9/11 and 7/7 false flag black ops. The aggression against Libya by the colonies of the city of London is all about banking.
Mesmerized by the killing of human beings, the filthy and apostate USA has dropped 15 million tons of bombs on earth's surface in last 60 years, spread 1 million tons of napalm on fields and forests, and sprayed 20 million gallons of defoliants on some of the most diverse rainforests on the planet. By any measure, the US military is conducting a war against earth itself. Such an inane effort does not come cheaply. The total cost of all military expenses for 2012 is estimated to be $1.2 trillion dollars, one-third of the total federal budget. It is the US military that is driving the US itself into bankruptcy.
In summary, the US military is destroying the lives of its own young men while it devastates other human cultures; it threatens the economic survival of the United States while fraying the ecological fabric that makes life on earth possible.
Mikhail Gorbachev once noted that the Soviet system was evil and had to be dismantled. The US military is a similarly evil force loosened on the world. As was done to the repugnant Soviet system, the equally repugnant US military should be completely dismantled, with all soldiers and ships and planes and weapons brought home from the vast web of 1,000 American military bases spanning the globe. The savings in terms of human lives, human suffering, ecological integrity and American dollars will be immeasurable. We can then begin to rebuild a national defense consisting of a small militia that can guard our borders and 'repel invasions,' as called for in the US Constitution, all the while remembering that the best defense is the making of friends (globalresearch.ca).
US to recoup Libya Oil from China
April 17, 2011 — Press TV has interviewed Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former assistant secretary of US Treasury from Panama City, who gives his insight on the revolution in Libya and why US President Barack Obama needs to overthrow Qaddafi when no other US presidents did . . . this is an armed rebellion . . . these protests originated in the eastern part of Libya where the oil is—they did not originate in the capital city.
In my opinion, what this is about is to eliminate China from the Mediterranean. China has extensive energy investments and construction investments in Libya. They are looking to Africa as a future energy source. The US is countering this by organizing the United States African Command (USAC), which Qaddafi refused to join. So that's the second reason for the Americans to want Qaddafi out. And the third reason is that Libya controls part of the Mediterranean coast and it's not in American hands . . . the Russians have a very large naval base in Syria. And it gives the Russian navy a presence in the Mediterranean; the US and NATO do not want that. If there is success in overthrowing Qaddafi, Syria is next. Already, they are blaming Iran for Syria and Libya. Iran is a major target because it is an independent state that is not a puppet of the Western colonialists. . . Full story: Paul Craig Roberts. The TRUTH about Libya.
US Secretly funded Syrian Opposition
April 18, 2011 — Cables show that the [US] State Department has funneled as much as $6 million since 2006 to a group of Syrian exiles to operate a London-based satellite channel, Barada TV, and finance activities inside Syria, the Post said. Barada TV began broadcasting in April 2009 but has ramped up operations to cover the mass protests in Syria that began last month as part of a long-standing campaign to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad the Post said.
The US money for Syrian opposition figures began flowing under President George W. Bush after political ties with Damascus were frozen in 2005, the newspaper said. The financial backing has continued under President Barack Obama... Full story: globalresearch.ca

World Bank: One Shock away from a Full-Blown Crisis
April 17, 2011 — Robert Zoellick cited rising food prices as the main threat to poor nations who risk 'losing a generation.' He was speaking in Washington at the end of the spring meetings of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. Meanwhile, G20 finance chiefs, who also met in Washington, pledged financial support to help new governments in the Middle East and North Africa. Mr Zoellick said such support was vital. 'The crisis in the Middle East and North Africa underscores how we need to put the conclusions from our latest world development report into practice. . .'

Comment: "Support" is NOT "vital" but the WB and IMF plan to impoverish developed countries by unrepayable usury. The criminalization of speculative trading in food as a commodity is "vital." As Mr. Robert Zoellick knows, 'losing a generation' and more is the objective. Hence 'G20 finance chiefs' have 'pledged financial support to help [only] new governments in the Middle East and North Africa' they have created after insurgencies plotted by the banksters of the City of London have stolen the wealth and enslaved the citizens of the formerly sovereign states of the Middle East and North Africa.
Obama may have a Criminal Past
March 31, 2011 — Trump is correct, Barry Soetoro, AKA Obama is hiding something in his past that is very bad . . . and it may not be his citizenship. . . . As an IRS tax examiner, one of many former federal jobs, I have seen what it appears Barry Soetoro has done, mostly by illegal aliens attempting to acquire a new identity in the US and/or criminals looking to acquire a new ID. . . Barry's mother dropped him as a dependent for some reason, maybe even when Barry was adopted by Lolo Soetoro. His mother's passport records dropped Barry as a dependent indicating Barry was no longer a legal dependent of his mothers. (The passport records of his mother have been produced showing Barry was no longer a dependent when Barry was permanently residing in Indonesia). Barry went to Hawaii to live with his alleged grandparents after Lolo Soetoro and Barry's mother divorced . . .

Japan Quake Forecast? Italian Earthquake Expert
April 2, 2011 — Italian seismologist Pier Francesco Biagi of the University of Bari's Physics Department, who accurately forecast the Japanese earthquake 10 days earlier, disproves the claim that earthquakes can't be predicted, but his work has been deliberately suppressed by underfunding. '[C]ountries in which research on precursors is still encouraged and funded are very few,' Biagi wrote in Nature magazine back in 1999. 'Generally this research is prevented so that in Europe any reference to earthquake precursors in a scientific proposal will guarantee that it will not be funded. Therefore, reputable and qualified scientists in this field are boycotted a priori. Is this the right way to conduct science?'
If the warning Biagi's team issued had been heeded, the devastating effects of the March 11 earthquake could have been avoided. Full funding and support is needed for the mapping and monitoring of these and other earthquake precursor indicators. Full story: larouchepac.com

1945: Not One Case of Poison Gas found in German Labor Camps Autopsies
April, 2007 — Rules of evidence should evenly apply.
Livor mortis is bright red in cases of carbon monoxide or hydrocyanide poisoning (or in cases where the corpse is kept in cold storage). Many large piles of corpses have been shown repeatedly since the war to falsely condemn Germany, but not once has it been claimed that any of the corpses were RED in color. Wouldn't those "eyewitnesses" have noticed that spectacular coloring? They would have been stunned by that coloring. They would have certainly mentioned it in the anti-Nazi war crimes trials if they were not simply lying their heads off during those trials. (Image from the Textbook of Maritime Medicine).
Arguably, the most taboo topic of our time is questioning the "Holocaust." Those who do are stereotyped as "Holocaust deniers." Why? Political interests are being served and political agendas are being advanced by controlling the "rules of engagement" and publicly shaming dissenters. More recently, those who question the official explanation for the attacks of September 11 have been labeled '9/11 deniers,' an obvious ploy to lump 9/11 truthers in the same category of thought-criminal outcasts as "Holocaust deniers." But the attempt has not succeeded. Where people were forced to develop their opinions on world events by receiving information through a few tightly controlled sources at the end of WWII, today we have billions of websites, real time global audio and visual satellite communications, email, Myspace and YouTube. People are now able to informally apply the common sense rules of evidence to develop their own opinions about current events without being dependent on politically controlled sources of information. It is becoming apparent that governments are having a much harder time "spinning" world events in the quickly advancing information age. It is interesting to wonder whether or not the "official" Holocaust story would have survived millions of people applying the rules of evidence had it occurred during the information age. Below is a lucid assessment of the limited amount of "evidence" we have at our disposal to commit the ultimate taboo—question the Holocaust.
By Wesley Ewers
Many people have the improper assumption that testimony is the highest form of evidence. No, the courts must routinely void testimony when it is not in line with the physical evidence. The Bible does say that upon the testimony of two or three witnesses, so shall a matter be established, with the purpose of not having just one false accuser.
All people are biased in one way or another—economically, by kith and kin, religion and politics, to name a few of the most common biases. Physical evidence is the highest form of evidence just because it has none of these biases, although it can be incorrectly interpreted, tampered with or even planted with the purpose of putting investigators onto the wrong rabbit trail.
An example is the highly legible passport of an alleged hijacker found on the street in NY on 9/11. The passport definitely qualifies as planted evidence—unless the hijacker opened the window of the airplane just before impact and tossed the passport out, an assumption that is, of course, ridiculous. The infamous passport is just one of the many pieces of evidence that were planted that fateful day.
Then there is documented evidence. It can also be biased because it is produced by people, but it stands forever for all to see; it can be challenged or countered. Documents include court papers, diaries, official records, newspaper articles, reports, books and photographs.
The rules of evidence, logic and common sense should be applied equally to all subjects. But they are not.
I am often told to forget this subject as "taboo" and "verboten." Even alternative radio programs sometimes hang up on me when I call in—even when they raised the subject by making reference to it.

A Judeo-Christian FM radio personality makes reference to it almost every Sunday. Recently, a famous author being interviewed on alternative radio was questioned as to his position on the subject of the Holocaust and said he did not want to discuss the matter. Then, 10 minutes later, he uses the "H" word as if the alleged poison gassing of 6 million Jews were an unchallengeable historical fact! Does that not make him a hypocrite?
Were there any autopsies performed on the corpses at the concentration camps after WWII? Yes. The highly-acclaimed pathologist Dr. Charles Larson was assigned the task of overseeing the performance of autopsies on the corpses found at Nazi concentration camps by the Judge Advocate General's Office. After overseeing thousands of autopsies he concluded: "Not one case of death by poison gas was found."
These autopsy reports were not entered as evidence in the Nuremburg war crimes trials.
Dr. John E. Gordon, MD., Ph.D., Harvard Professor was also part of the autopsy team. He stated that: "Most deaths in the concentration camps were caused, not by starvation or maltreatment but by typhus."
Dr. David Batton entered the camps with British forces and volunteered to help the diseased survivors. Testifying under oath in a Toronto courtroom in 1985 he said: "Thousands of prisoners who died at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp during WWII weren't deliberately starved to death but died from a rash of diseases."
Major Miller of the Allied Military Police HQ in Vienna signed memo/order #31/48 on October 1, 1948 declaring that since the Allied Commissions of Inquiry had established that no one in the 12 German concentration camps was killed by poison gas that any former inmate maintaining otherwise was to be arrested and charged with perjury.
This memo/order also stated that all confessions of gassings at the camps used at Nuremburg war trials were gained by way of torture. This memo/order was witnessed by a Lieutenant Emil Lachout.
I should add that the US autopsy teams were not allowed into the eight USSR-controlled camps in Poland. Our buddies at the time, the Red Communists of the USSR, did not want the US performing any autopsies in their camps. In fact, it was L.P. Beria of the NKVD (Soviet secret police predating the KGB), a Jew, who started the rumors of homicidal gas chambers in 1945. Also, the USSR never allowed Red Cross observers into their own concentration camps in the USSR as the Nazis did during the war.
Upon review of mountains of Nazi documents seized by the Allies, no orders to kill inmates at the concentration camps were found. Orders were, however, found from Heinrich Himmler and SS General Richard Glucks for the commanders of the camps to do everything possible to preserve the health of the detainees. Dr. Konrad Morgen of the Reich Criminal Police investigated 800 accusations of cruelty at their camps and obtained 200 convictions. Punishment included execution for Commandant of Majdanek-Hermann Florstedt and also Commandant of Buchenwald Karl Koch for unwarranted cruelty of inmates.
In 7,000 pages of memoirs by Eisenhower, Churchill and de Gaulle, there is no mention of homicidal gas chambers—horrors, yes; gas chambers, no.
In 1,600 pages of reports of the concentration camps from the Red Cross there is, likewise, no mention of homicidal gas chambers. In fact, I personally wrote to the Red Cross in Geneva and obtained a copy of its investigation of Auschwitz for homicidal gas chambers dated September 29, 1944. The Red Cross found no homicidal gas chambers.
The "Holocaust" lobby claims that, at the Wannsee Conference of Jan. 1942, the Nazis established the "final solution" for the Jewish problem was gassing them to death with Zyklon B, but these documents have proven to be a hoax and would be laughed out of any courtroom. The "final solution" always was for Jews to be forced to emigrate from Germany.
Then there is engineer Fred Leuchter, America's foremost expert on executions, who took a team of investigators to Auschwitz in 1988 and concluded that, with no shadow of a doubt, there were no gas execution facilities operated by the Nazis at that facility.
I will let the reader decide but, for myself, I think Major Miller's orders should be followed. To the letter. Still today.

Gabriel, Michael, and Christ
"I say to this to you people here, you Catholic people, to you Lutheran, to you Methodists, and so forth, the Light that's on the Word today, it was not given to Martin Luther. Neither was it given to John Wesley. John Wesley preached sanctification that Luther passed over. And the Light comes as we have need of Light. God says it, and it isn't opened up to us because it's hid to our eyes until the day that God's able to reveal it. Wonder what it'll be after we leave? Yea, I'm persuaded that there's very, very much more that we know nothing about. That is right. There's Seven Seals, if we just take the complete Book of Revelation, that's sealed on the back of the Book. It ain't even, isn't written in the Book. And them Seals are to be opened during this Church Age, and the seven last mysteries of God is to be made known. Oh, I'd like to just keep it all winter and go through it. Yes, sir. The Seven Church Ages."
"As Daniel heard the Seven Thunders and forbidden (Daniel 12:5-9; Revelation 10:1-6); and John heard the voices, and this Book was sealed, and the back of the Book was sealed with Seven Seals; but in the days of these Seals to be opened, the mystery of God would be finished (Revelation 10:7). In other words, God would be known to His Church, not in three people, but as One Person. The mystery of God would be revealed, and when that was completely revealed, then the seven mysteries would open to the Church; because in there, the Church would be living under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Him moving in and out and showing His signs of being alive and among us, living among us, and we're then worshipping the living Christ that's among us. [Because the revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963 brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form]."
"Don't never look for big churches and big things. When we get to this Pentecostal Age, you'll certainly see where they lost out. The very church "Laodicea" means "rich, need of nothing, and naked, wretched, blind, miserable, and don't know it." See? They went off after like great money, and buildings, and everything else, when the Church has always been the out-scours of the earth. They were hated by all people, cast out, in alleys, anywhere they could live. Read Hebrews 11 and take the last six or eight verses of it, how, "They wandered about in deserts, and wearing sheepskins and goatskins, and was destitute, and afflicted, and tormented." Those people there, how will our testimony stand up against theirs in the day of the judgment (See?), those people in that day" (The Ephesian Church Age, p. 138:38-41)?
Satan's three temptations, the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life—money, women, and popularity with the people—certainly manifest in the Laodicean Church Age which ended in apostasy in 1963. Yet many who came out of the world church system into the circle of this Message are trapped in Laodicea because the only way into the Capstone is through the revelation of the Message of the seventh angel, William Branham. Yet they memorize the "letter" of his Message "without the Spirit" and eschew revelation which is the mind of Christ and faith, and imprison their souls to the imagination of their hearts as they build on human reasoning what they presume is the Kingdom of God, when it is an empire of personal ego and Satan's Eden.
"Daniel heard the Voice as it thundered, and was forbidden to write it. John was forbidden to write it. But it was sealed on the backside of the Book, that is, after all of the mysteries of the Book has been given out and revealed. [In ancient time when the scribe had filled his scroll he would continue writing on the backside]. You notice Daniel said there the mysteries in the days of these voices, the mystery of God should be unfolded by that time (See?), the mystery, Who God is, how He was made flesh, all these things should be unfolded by that time. Then we're ready for the Seven Seals on the backside of the Book, that's not even revealed to men, not even wrote in the Bible, but they'll have to be just exactly compare with the rest of the Bible, and I think it'll be a great thing" (In His Presence, p, 1:2; Daniel 12:5-9; Revelation 10:1-7).
"Then Daniel at the last he seen an Angel come down, put one foot on the land and one on the sea, a rainbow over His head. He raised up His hands, and swore by Him that lives forever and ever, that "time shall be no more," at the finishing of that time that he had told him [Revelation 10:1-6]. In other words, this dividing of time that we're living in now, from the time and Coming of the Prince until this day [i.e. from "Palm Sunday" April 2, AD30 when "Messiah the Prince" rode into Jerusalem on a white ass colt (Daniel 9:25; Zechariah 9:9; Matthew 21:5-11) until the close of the Laodicean Church Age and the opening and revealing of the Sealed Book (Revelation 4, 5, 10:1-7)]. And said, "At that time the mystery of God should be finished."
"And the world groaning, waiting today, people don't know the mystery of God. Why? They've not been taught the mystery of God. The only thing they been taught, "join church, put your name on the book, be a good fellow, treat your neighbor right." That's all right, but you must know the mystery of God. No man can reveal it to you but the One that had the Book. And the Bible said, "No man can call Jesus the Christ, only by the [revelation of the] Holy Ghost." This grand, old Holy Ghost Church is going to come out one of these days and shine like you've never seen [Daniel 12:3; Romans 8:19; in the manifestation of the Sons of God]" (Revelation, Book of Symbols, p. 11:61-62).
In Genesis and other pre-exilic Biblical writings, angels tend to represent the Presence of God among humans, but they were not given names. The births of Ishmael and Samson, for instance, were heralded by an unnamed angel; however the angel is frequently called "man of God," which is the import of Gabriel.
Whenever God is preparing some major event, He always sends an angel (Isaiah 42:9; Amos 3:7). The word "angel" comes from the Greek 'aggelos,' a masculine noun translated from the Hebrew "mal'ak" which means "messenger." As messengers or ministers of God, angels are always male as women are forbidden to preach or publicly minister God's Word (Hebrews 1:7; I Timothy 2:12-15; Genesis 3:16). This shows the distance between God and man since he disputed the sovereignty of His Word, and consequently the need for an intermediary between them. Even in the Temple several veils separated the holy place from the holy of holies where the high priest alone could enter but once a year. Man was reunited to God through the Coming of Adam's Kinsman Redeemer who lay down His Life in substitution for the life of Adam and all of his offspring who were potentially in him.
Adam's antediluvian kinsmen either married into the family of Cain or emulated their corrupt and immoral conduct instead of reflecting the nature of God, and He destroyed them all but Enoch and Noah's family. Miscegenation with the Serpent's seed and identification with their corrupt manners is the curse of today and the God Who changes not will destroy our wicked and adulterous civilization (Matthew 24:37).
After the Flood God again began separating the righteous from the unrighteous by the Word of His prophets who were His "angels" or messengers. But when Israel rejected His Word and withstood His prophet Moses, God placed them under the Law until the faith should be revealed (Galatians 3:23-25). The Law was to instruct and discipline Israel to distinguish what is clean and acceptable from what is unclean, profane, and separates one from the congregation of the Lord.
Thereafter our Kinsman Redeemer Jesus Christ paid the price of sin and from Pentecost until the revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963 God sent seven angels to reveal the Word of the hour to the elect of each age. Peter called it "the present Truth" (II Peter 1:12), but because the Bible was shut up and sealed with Seven Seals the Church Age saints had only PART-Word to which they added the man-made theology of trinities, catechisms, baptism in three Titles, etc., which was an affront to the sovereignty of God (Revelation 22:18-19). So Christ remained a Mediator between God and His elect until all seven Church Ages were fulfilled. As Mediator He placed their guesswork and fables under the Blood in the sea of God's forgetfulness and received the "present Truth" for their day so they could be born-again.
When the last saint predestinated to the PART-Word Bride was born into the Body or baptized into Christ, He advanced from intercession, claimed the Book of Redemption from God, tore open the Seven Seals and revealed them through His prophet, William Branham, the angel to the Laodicean Church Age, who revealed them to us (Revelation 4, 5, 10:1-7).
We now have the perfect interpretation of the Word (Acts 3:23; Revelation 10:7; I Corinthians 13:10). We have not only the Keys of the Kingdom of heaven, or revelation of the present Truth which unlocks the new birth or Spiritual resurrection to us (Matthew 16:19), we have the Keys of hell and of death with access to resurrection and translation power (Revelation 1:18; Ephesians 1:10-20).
Whenever God is preparing some major event, He always sends an angel (Amos 3:7). Gabriel was the One who announced the first Coming of Jesus Christ. And Gabriel will announce His second Coming. This Man Gabriel bears studying.
Although I believe Gabriel appears throughout the Old Testament we first encounter Him by Name in Daniel 8:16-27. Here he signifies the mystery of the ram and the he-goat to God's prophet: how the Medo-Persian Empire will fall to Alexander whose empire will be divided among his successors and overcome by Rome—Antiochus Epiphanes being a type of Rome's Devil-incarnate last pope (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 168:1 – 169:7).
Jeremiah 25:8-11 prophesied Judah would serve the king of Babylon 70 years, then return. "Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; because you have not obeyed My words, behold, I will gather together all the armies of the north under Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant, [who, unlike Judah, is the performer of My commands], and I will bring them all against this land and its people and against all the neighbouring nations, and I will utterly destroy them, and make you a byword of contempt forever. Moreover I will take away your joy, your gladness and your wedding feasts, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle. This whole land shall be a desolation and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years." Seventy years is a lifetime.
Jeremiah 29:10, "Thus saith the Lord, after seventy years are completed for Babylon I will visit you and fulfil My promise to you in returning you to this place".
Daniel had been in Babylon since 606BC; sixty-eight of the seventy years were completed and with only two years extant he was in earnest prayer regarding his responsibility as God's prophet, anxious to learn how he should serve God and what should become of the Judahites and their holy city at the end of the seventy years of the desolations of Jerusalem. In response to his supplications Gabriel returns, however he did not "fly swiftly" as your Bible says; the correct translation of Daniel 9:21 is, "While I was speaking in prayer, the Man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the previous vision, approached me in my state of extreme weariness, and touched me about the time of the evening offering" to reveal that "from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem . . . to the consummation of life and the Messianic Kingdom or Millennium" God has determined precisely seventy weeks of years or 490 prophetic years in which He will deal with Daniel's people and with Jerusalem (Daniel 9; Isaiah 9:7; Hosea 6:1-2; Micah 4:8; Acts 1:6).
By implication the Being "having the appearance of a man" who comes to interpret Daniel's vision of the last days is also Gabriel (Daniel 10:18, compare Revelation 1:17). Many of the visions of Daniel 7 – 12 are also in the Book of Revelation and Brother Branham described the appearance of the Angel of the Lord—"the One who told me all these things" as "a large man, weighing about two hundred pounds, with dark hair to His shoulder"
In Ezekiel 4 the prophet himself represented both the house of Israel and the house of Judah; so throughout the Book of Revelation, one man, John, represents Christ's end-time Bride who will not see physical death, and I believe Daniel here represents the 144,000 elect Israelites as it is at the time of the evening sacrifice that God revealed these mysteries to the Bride through Brother Branham to restore us to the apostolic faith of the morning sacrifice with "much incense" of the revelation of the Seven Seals to make the faith of the Bride of all Ages acceptable to God, for we are one Body (Malachi 4:5-6; Zechariah 14:7; Romans 15:16; Revelation 8:1-4; 10:7). And the exposition of Daniel's Seventy Weeks, the end of the Church Ages and the 'parousia' Coming of the Son of man as revealed through Brother Branham will be taught to the 144,000 by their two prophets in the revelation of their Trumpet mysteries with the emphasis on Christ's 'parousia' Coming to Israel. Furthermore, Daniel approached "one of those standing by [the Throne] and asked him the truth of the vision (of Daniel 7:9-10, 13-16; Revelation 1:5), so he interpreted the vision." I believe this one was William Branham, the angel of Revelation 1:1 who guided John throughout the Patmos visions, since he is the sole individual to whom the Lord Jesus revealed this mystery.
Angels in Scripture are usually mortal men like King David (Hebrews 2:5-8; Psalm 8:5-8), Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Luther, Wesley, and William Branham: they have no wings (Revelation 2-3), for "He made Cherubims [and Seraphim] with wings, and He made Angels without wings" (Israel at the Red Sea, p. 37:15). Yet Revelation 8:13 describes "an angel flying in mid-heaven"—the highest point in the heavens which the Sun occupies at noon, where what is done can be seen and the announcements of its three "woes" heard by all. So in Revelation 14:6-11, the angels Martin Luther, John Wesley and William Branham are said to "fly in the midst of heaven" announcing their Messages of Justification by grace through faith; Scriptural holiness and judgment on Mystery Babylon which has made all nations partake of Judaeo-Roman Catholic idolatry; and Brother Branham, warning the world: "If any man worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, he shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out undiluted into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with Fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment will ascend forever and ever: and those who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receives the mark of his name will have no rest day nor night." Also in Zechariah 5:1-4 we find a "flying scroll [or book] announcing a curse over the face of the whole earth," another metaphor.
Moreover, when Brother Branham explains the vision the Lord showed him on the morning of December 22, 1962 in which he was caught up into a pyramid-shaped constellation of the theophanies of the seven stars or "angels" of Revelation 2 and 3, they each had wings (Reproach for the Word, 4:2 – 7:9; Sirs, is this the Time, p. 23:5 – 27:5). Brother Branham reports in the Seventh Seal and subsequent Messages how Revelation 4:1-2 was fulfilled with the vision on March 8, 1963 when he was caught up from Sunset Mountain into the constellation of the theophanies of the Church Age messengers and identified with the seventh Angel. (See Newsletters 632, 633 and 634).
But what about the wings, these men did not have wings? The angels were Seraphim, winged man-like servants who receive and offer the revelation or sacrifice that cleanses the worshiper so he can approach the throne of mercy where they present him to God (Isaiah 6:1-7). These represent the sevenfold Spirit of God that led the Church Age messengers under the natures of four living creatures, which in the Old Testament represented the leading tribes of Israel guarding the way to the Presence of the Lord in the Most Holy Place where stood the Throne or Ark of the Covenant. In the New Testament the four living creatures represent the elect Church guarding the way into the Kingdom by the baptism with the Holy Spirit under the four Gospels and the first Four Seals of redemption.
The saints of Pentecost and the Church Ages of Ephesus, Smyrna and Pergamos were baptized into the Body under the nature of the creature in the east with the face of a Lion representing the Gospel of the Apostle St. Matthew, written primarily to Israelites who comprised the majority of converts under the First Seal. The saints of the Thyatira Church Age were baptized into the Body under the Second Seal and the nature of the creature in the west with the face of an Ox represented the Gospel of the Pastor St. Mark which was addressed to western, Roman and other Gentile Christians. Saints of the Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicean Church Ages were baptized into the Body under the Third Seal and the nature of the creature in the south with the face of a Man represented the Gospel of the Teacher St. Luke which was written specifically for us Gentiles. As Paul said, "the Greeks [i.e. Gentiles] seek wisdom," and no other Seal has produced such gifted Bible teachers. The saints of latter part of Laodicea and this present holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of Israel's Pentecostal Feast are baptized into the Body under the Fourth Seal and the nature of the creature in the south with the face of an Eagle representing the Gospel of the Evangelist and Prophet St. John, which is designed to inspire faith in Jesus Christ. Throughout the Gentile dispensation the creaturely nature of those four living creatures signified the spiritual anointing imparted by the four gospels whose revelation guided and guarded the way to the Tree of Life and the Acts of the Holy Spirit in successive dispensations, cleansing them as the burning coal purged Isaiah's lips to speak for God.
"I'm Gabriel that stands at the right hand of God, and in His Presence of God" (Led by the Spirit, #52-0727).
Brother Branham said of Gabriel, "It was the Angel of the Lord Who stood at the right side of the altar of incense and told Zacharias he was going to have a son by his wife Elisabeth. Why, he said, these things can't be. She's too old, and I'm old . . . there stood the great Archangel. It frightened the priest. And He told him all about his life, and things, and what he was going to do. Said, after days of your ministration" (I Am the Resurrection and Life, 52-0810A; Luke 1:9-23).
If Gabriel can discern the thoughts and intents of the heart, Hebrews 4:12 identifies Him as the One who walked the shores of Galilee and stands at the right hand of God (Luke 1:11, 19).
Psalm 110:1, "The Lord said to my Lord [Jesus Christ], Sit at My right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool".
Matthew 26:63-64, "Jesus said to Caiaphas the high priest, I am the Christ, the Son of God as you have said, and hereafter you will see the Son of man seated at the right hand of Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven".
Acts 7:55, "Stephen, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God".
Hebrews 1:1-3, "God, Who at different times and in various ways spoke to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us in His Son, Whom He has appointed heir of all things, by Whom also He made the worlds; Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His Person, and upholding all things by the Word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high".
Hebrews 10:12; 12:2, "This Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God. . . Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God".
The Angel of the Lord who stands at the right hand of the Altar is called Gabriel, which means "Man of God," an overcomer like Jacob whose name was changed to Israel because he prevailed or overcame. The Angel of the Lord who stands at the right hand of the Throne is also called Jesus, which means "Jehovah Saviour." Jesus is the "Son of God," who as "Son of man" overcame for us and we overcome by Him. Interesting, isn't it?
Brother Branham said, "Did you ever notice in my healing services, I bring the people from my right, because the Angel of the Lord always comes on my right side. I want Him to meet the people, so they'll have the anointing when they come up here that He can tell them and bless them" (Unchangeable Word of God, 60-0724).
"The great Archangel, Gabriel, who is the messenger of the Covenant to the Jewish people, who stands at the right hand of God. . ." (Thirsting for Life, 60-0304; Judges 2:1).
"Gabriel is the messenger to . . . the Jewish church" (The Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's Visit to Daniel, p. 43:28).
"Anyone knows that the Pillar of Fire that led the children of Israel was the Angel of the Covenant, is that right, ministers? Well, who was it? Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever" (Faith in Action, #55-1003).
"The Pillar of Fire that led the children of Israel, It was the Angel of the Covenant, Jesus Christ. . . . I know by an experience, that same Lord Jesus is not two feet from where I'm standing right now. That's right" (Faith, p. 15:108-111).
"Then the Holy Spirit, the Angel of God, Gabriel goes down into the city of Nazareth to little Mary. . ." (Led by the Spirit, 52-0727). This Man Gabriel also spoke the Logos to Mary which, when she received it by faith germinated in her womb, and was made flesh and dwelt among us (Luke 1:26-35).
"Today the true Messenger of the Covenant stands at the Door—which Jesus is the Door of salvation, and the only Door—and claims that He is the only way of escape, just before judgment" (Watchman, What of the Night, 60-0722).
Angelic Beings are attributes of God sent forth to minister to the Church. So is Gabriel an Office or manifestation of Christ (like Prophet, Priest, and King, Son of man, Son of God, Son of David), the Angel of the Lord who appeared to Moses as a flame of Fire in a bush that was not consumed, the Rock that followed Israel through the wilderness and provided waters of life, the Pillar of Cloud and Fire that went before and followed after Israel (Exodus 3:2; 17:6; Deuteronomy 32:4; I Corinthians 10:1-4)?
Brother Branham said, "The messenger of the Covenant [to the Gentile people is] the seventh star of the day, we're living in that day" (Queen of Sheba #61-0119E; Revelation 1:1, 16, 20; 3:14; 10:7). This sinner saved by grace veiled the fullness of the Word that revealed "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever" by the Messianic sign of Hebrews 4:12 like the created Man of Genesis 18, and the virgin-born Man of the Gospels; this was the last sign promised in Scripture before the end of the Gentile dispensation (Luke 17:28-30; Genesis 18).
"Don't want to hurt your feelings, but how can you women set here and know that the Bible tells you that it's wrong for you to cut your hair, that you dishonor your husband when you do it? You prove yourself as a woman of the street when you do such a thing. And because of the Angel, you should have long hair. What Angel? The Angel of the Covenant, the Angel, the messenger of the day, the seventh Angel which is sounding today" (From that Time, #62-0713).
What about Michael, whose Name means "Who is like God"? He was "the Captain of the host of the Lord, and Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and worshipped" (Joshua 5:14; Colossians 2:18; Revelation 19:10; 22:8). Joshua worshipped this Divine being because "the Spirit of Christ" was in him (I Peter 1:10-11). Michael was the Archangel who rebuked Satan (Zechariah 3:1-5; Jude 8-9). He will cast Satan down to earth at the end of the age, take His power, and fight for the elect of Israel (Daniel 7:26; 12:1; Revelation 12:7). Michael is Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, the same Holy Spirit manifesting a different aspect of the Lord.
"And at that time Michael shall stand, the great prince." Michael was Christ, of course, who fought the angelic wars in heaven with the Devil" (The Beginning and Ending of the Gentile Dispensation, p. 13:112).
"Notice, Lucifer in the last days is doing as he did at first. What did Lucifer do? The first thing that Lucifer done to separate the fellowship of God and man, he wanted to build him a united kingdom of greater splendor and seemingly more cultured, a greater kingdom than Michael, Christ had. You got it"? (Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed, p. 71:543).
There were seven earthly angels sent to the Church Ages, but there is only one Chief or Archangel who is Jesus Christ Himself. When we imagine Michael and Gabriel as distinct Beings rather than separate Offices we seem to have a trinity of Archangels, Angels of the Lord, Angels of the Covenant, and Angels at God's right hand.
In Exodus 14:19-24 we find the Angel of the Lord who went before and behind the camp of Israel was [a manifestation of] the Lord Himself. In Exodus 23:20-21 God told Moses, "Behold, I send an Angel before you to keep you in the way and to bring you into the place I have prepared. Pay heed to Him and obey His voice; do not provoke Him, for He will not pardon your transgressions; for My Name—[the Office declaring My present activity—El Shaddai, Jehovah-Jireh, Jehovah-Rapha, Jehovah-Nissi, Jehovah-Shalom, Jehovah-Raah, Jehovah-Tsidkenu, Jehovah-Shammah, Jehovah-Saviour, etc.,]—My Name is in Him." And God's Name is in Jesus so as the Son of David He is a Heir to the throne; as the Son of Abraham He is Heir to the royal grant—Palestine; as Son of man He is Heir to this earth; and as Son of God He is Heir to all things in heaven and on earth. That's our Redeemer, our Kinsman Redeemer (Ephesians 1:20-21; Hebrews 1:2, 4-5).
In Isaiah 63:8-9 "The Lord said, Surely they are My people, children who will not lie: so He was their Saviour. In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the Angel of His Presence [or 'parousia' as in Genesis 32:30] saved them; in His love and in His pity He redeemed them; He bore them and carried them all the days of old" (Isaiah 46:21-22). John 1:18, "No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, has declared [or gone before and made] Him [known by acting out the Word prophesied for the hour]." So when the Shekinah manifest in the form of a star above Brother Branham as he baptized the seventeenth of five hundred penitents in the Ohio River, a voice said, "As John the Baptist foreran My first Coming, your Message will forerun My second Coming." His Message introduced 'that which is perfect," Christ, the Angel of the Presence or 'parousia.'
Brother Branham said, "Gabriel was the One who announced the first Coming of Jesus Christ. Is that right? [Yes, Luke 1:26-35]. And we're taught in the Bible that Gabriel will announce the second Coming. He will sound the trumpet of God (is that right?) [Yes, I Thessalonians 4:16], the Coming of the Lord, the Angel of God, Gabriel, Who stands at God's right hand" (William Branham, I Am the Resurrection and Life, #52-0810A).
Let us see what Paul wrote in I Thessalonians 4:13-17, "I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who are asleep, that you do not grieve as those who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so those who sleep in Jesus will God bring with Jesus." And He has!!!
"This we declare by the Word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the ['parousia'] Coming of the Lord shall not take precedence over those who have died".
The second Coming of Christ—NOT the second return of the Man Jesus—was a 'parousia' Coming. The revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963 brought Christ back to Earth in W_O_R_D form as prophesied in I Corinthians 13:10 and Revelation 10:1-7. Christ's end-time Bride is not looking for the literal physical 'erchomai' return of the glorified Jesus, who stated emphatically that we must not look for that Man from Galilee. His precious feet will not touch this earth 'til He returns with the saints of all Ages and steps out on the atomic ashes of the wicked for a thousand years of peace after the consummation of Life (Isaiah 13:9; Malachi 4:1-3; Matthew 3:12; 24:22-28; II Thessalonians 1:8-9; Revelation 19:20; 20:5, etc).
"For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout".
This was the "midnight cry" of William Branham's Message, which went forth with the opening of the Seals to awaken the wise and foolish virgin from denominational slumber and call them out from Babylon and her (once) Protestant daughter Churches into the unity of the faith (Matthew 25:6; Ephesians 4:13). This is the Message of the third angel flying in mid-heaven to warn men against taking the mark of the beast and to restore them to the apostolic faith by the mysteries of the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 14:9-11).
"With the voice of the Archangel".
Brother Branham called this "the voice of the resurrection. The same voice [of Jesus Christ] that, a loud voice in St. John 11:38 and 44 that called Lazarus from the grave. Getting the Bride together." So the voice of the Archangel Gabriel is Jesus Christ the heavenly Bridegroom whispering His secrets in the heart of His beloved Bride; placing the Message of the earthly angel from Genesis to Revelation to bring Her to maturity for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Revelation 18:1-4; 10:3; 14:9; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:51-52). The voice is "loud" or "strong" only in that its revelation negates the noise of intellectual dogma and religious traditions, for the "shout" of the Message has already awoken the virgins and the wheat Bride is resting in this holy convocation as the Son-Light dries her greenness, ripening her to maturity for the harvest home.
Are Gabriel, Michael, Son of Man and Son of God different Offices or dispensation claims of one Lord Jesus Christ, who is the One Person of God?
John 5:24-29, "Truly I assure you, He who hears My Word, and believes on Him who sent Me, has eternal Life, and will not come into condemnation; but is passed from death to Life," said the Son of man in the days of His flesh. Then speaking of the Church Ages during which He would be Mediator in the Office of Son of God He said, "Truly I assure you, the hour is coming, and now is, when those [spiritually] dead [in sin and trespasses] shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live [or be born-again]. For as the Father has Life in Himself; He has granted the Son to have Life in Himself and has given Him authority to execute judgment [following the end of Laodicea in the holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of Israel's Pentecostal feast, which is now, and during Daniel's Seventieth Week] when He [will be in the Office of] the Son of man" and Judge, as He is now.
"Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice [as Son of David], and come forth [in the general resurrection for the White Throne Judgment after the millennium]; they who have done good to the resurrection of Life; and those who have done evil, unto the resurrection of condemnation".
Did you notice the three Comings?
"And with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first".
The dead in Christ hardly need waking up since they came with Christ when He began His descent; they are one with the Word and have been present in another dimension since the revelation of the Seven Seals. Revelation 8:1: "When Jesus had opened the Seventh Seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour" while His end-time Bride makes herself ready for the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the Sky, dressed in THUS SAITH THE LORD of the Message. After three days, the physical resurrection of the departed saints will commence, Church Age, by Church Age, "and we who are alive and remain" will manifest that we are the Sons of God as persecution becomes dire. About forty-seven days after the earthquake sinks Los Angeles you will see beyond the veil of this flesh and recognize one of the glorified saints. This experience will instantly supercharge your faith with grace to change in the atoms "and be caught up together with them in the clouds."
The Logos came back to earth through the mouth of God's prophet as the "spoken Word" of the unwritten Seventh Seal which is the revelation of the previous six written Seals and fullness of the Word. I Corinthians 13:10, "when that which is perfect has come, [and it has], then PART-Word and Christ's mediation for ignorance of the fullness will be done away [and it is]".
"And Jesus comes from heaven with ten thousands times ten thousands of His saints, and the Bible said that the heavens was empty for the space of a half hour. Where is this big fellow, God then? Uh-huh. See, He's in Christ" (The Sardisean Church Age, p. 348:95; I Thessalonians 4:14; Jude 14-15).
"The trump of God" is Israel's Seventh Trumpet calling 144,000 elect blood descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to Israel for the antitype of their feast of Trumpets that will be expounded under the ministry of two Hebrew prophets with the anointings that endued Moses and Elijah. It will mark the start of Daniel's Seventieth Week, but the full significance of the hour and Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel will be unrecognized by them until after the midst of the Week. However "the wise will understand" by the sinking of Los Angeles and much of California that the Trump has sounded the end of the Gentile dispensation and the imminent departure of the Holy Spirit in the translation of His Bride, making Earth God's judgment seat for the tribulation (II Thessalonians 2:6-7).
"When you hear of Gabriel coming down from glory, it's not just a minor thing; something major's fixing to take place. . . Gabriel announced the first coming of Christ. And Gabriel will announce the second coming of Christ. Amen. He's the Archangel, standing at the right hand of His Majesty in glory" (Ministry of Christ, #53:0607A).
The rapture is the threefold PROCESS of the shout, voice and trump which commenced with the revelation of the Seven Seals. In his exposition Brother Branham said, "Three things happen, a shout, a voice, a trumpet, has to happen before Jesus appears. . . Jesus does all three of them when He's descending" (The Rapture, p. 29:130). Whatever happened to Gabriel?
I was asked is the Mighty Angel of Revelation 10:1-3 still on earth today and is He Michael and Gabriel?
Names describe the nature, office or occupation of an individual and whenever there is a transformation in any of these circumstances there is a change of name or office as from Father to Son, to Holy Spirit, boy to man or Miss. to Mrs. So in Daniel 12:5-13 we see that Michael is Christ. Michael is Christ and He is the Archangel, yet Brother Branham said Gabriel is the Archangel, and that "the mighty Angel" of Revelation 10:1-3 is "the Lord Jesus Himself who descended from heaven with the voice of the Archangel" whose "feet will [metaphorically] stand upon the Mount of Olives in the Day of the Lord" (Zechariah 14:3-4; Revelation 7:2). The Lord Jesus is Himself Archangel Michael made flesh (I Thessalonians 4:14, 16); Melchisedec manifest in virgin-born flesh as Jesus Messiah, who is Jehovah Saviour and Gabriel made flesh. It is my understanding that Gabriel and Michael are two Offices of Christ, a situation we find difficult to conceive because we were born and bred to believe the trinitarian dogma that God is three persons.
Christ comes only three times and He is present now. First He came to redeem His elect, a physical 'erchomai' coming; second, He returned in W_O_R_D form, a 'parousia' coming to incarnate Himself into His end-time Bride "Until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ" (Ephesians 4:12-16). Then He will take us Home and reveal His 'parousia' to Israel, "by faith, NOT by sight." Finally after the consummation of life on earth the glorified Man will return for the Millennium with the glorified saints of all Ages—His third coming and second literal physical 'erchomai' return.
Since the opening of the Seals the fullness of the Spirit on the fullness of the Word is drawing us closer to the mind of God. It has taken six thousand years but He is restoring His elect to the relationship Adam forfeited. The Voice of the Lord has returned to the Bride in these last days. The manifestation of the Sons of God will declare who has the character of God with the Token of the Life of Christ subject to the sovereignty of God. Those who are His Own will go to the eternal land of the Millennium where we are assured, "It shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear" (Isaiah 65:24). nl682.htm
