"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Pray for these Iranian Pastors: Behnam Irani imprisoned for five years, Petros Forouton serving a one year sentence, and Youcef Nadarkhani in prison awaiting the court's verdict. Other ministers are under intense pressure, and several have fled into exile owing to the state's anti-Christian policy. Please sign the petitions here, here, and here.
Last night I watched President Ahmadinejad's Christmas Message to Britain. The godly principles of this genuine humble and sincere non-Christian man are a rebuke to the hypocritical anti-Christian war criminals 'fronting' for the alien 'hidden hand' that rules our Christ-rejecting nations from behind the scenesdastardly men and women that would slash his throat and murder his mothers and daughters, young men and old, in obeisance to Lucifer's quest for global hegemony.
We live among a people whose unbelief has brought the world under submission to Satan who is restrained only by the Presence of the Holy Spirit in Christ's end-time Bride (II Thessalonians 2:7). As action produces re-action this satanic force rules the governments of our countries in faithful service to the mystery of iniquity, seeking to destroy peaceful Iran as a step toward enslaving China and Russia. It wreaks murder, rapine and mayhem on weaker nations and mongrelizes Adam's race, generating chaos on which to build Lucifer's totalitarian one world government. But God will restrain the final conflict until 144,000 elect Israelites have been born-again (Revelation 7:3-4).
In view of this short term prospect our main article introduces the antitype of Israel's "Feast of Trumpets" which will fulfill the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week wherein two Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 will call 144,000 elect Israelites whence the nation fell when it murdered Messiah, and by expounding the mysteries of the Seven Trumpet judgments whereby the Lord has chastened Israel since Calvary, introduce Jesus Messiah, and by expounding the Seven Vials distinguish the false church from the true Church, and present Messiah's Bride, Israel's Queen.
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.

Fukushima: A Nuclear War without a War
January 25, 2012 According to Dr. Helen Caldicott, "One millionth of a gram of plutonium ingested causes cancer". . . a staggering 4,400 tons of nuclear fuel rods at Fukushima . . . dwarfs the total size of radiation sources at Chernobyl" (Extremely High Radiation Levels in Japan: University Researchers Challenge Official Data, Global Research, April 11, 2011). . . The dumping of highly radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean constitutes a potential trigger to a process of global radioactive contamination. Radioactive elements have not only been detected in the food chain in Japan, radioactive rain water has been recorded in California:
"Hazardous radioactive elements being released in the sea and air around Fukushima accumulate at each step of various food chains (for example, into algae, crustaceans, small fish, bigger fish, then humans; or soil, grass, cow's meat and milk, then humans). Entering the body, these elementscalled internal emittersmigrate to specific organs such as the thyroid, liver, bone, and brain, continuously irradiating small volumes of cells with high doses of alpha, beta and/or gamma radiation, and over many years often induce cancer" (Helen Caldicott, Fukushima: Nuclear Apologists Play Shoot the Messenger on Radiation, The Age, April 26, 2011). [Click this map of Fukushima radiation fallout to see a map of the nuclear plume illustrating the spread of radiation and click here to view a map showing typical radiation wind trajectories from Fukushima to the West Coast on North America].
Japan as a nation state has been destroyed. Its landmass and territorial waters are contaminated. Part of the country is uninhabitable. High levels of radiation have been recorded in the Tokyo metropolitan area, which has a population of 39 million (2010) . . . Japan's industrial and manufacturing base is prostrate. Japan is no longer a leading industrial power. The country's exports have plummeted. The Tokyo government has announced its first trade deficit since 1980. . . in January, Russian officials confiscated irradiated Japanese automobiles and auto parts in the port of Vladivostok . . .
. . . The powerful corporate interests behind nuclear energy and nuclear weapons overlap. In Japan at the height of the disaster, "the nuclear industry and government agencies [were] scrambling to prevent the discovery of atomic-bomb research facilities hidden inside Japan's civilian nuclear power plants." (See Yoichi Shimatsu, Secret Weapons Program Inside Fukushima Nuclear Plant? Global Research, April 12, 2011 [reported in Newsletter 681]).
Tactical nuclear weapons with an explosive capacity of up to six times a Hiroshima bomb are labeled by the Pentagon as "safe for the surrounding civilian population." No concern has been expressed at the political level as to the likely consequences of a US-NATO-Israel attack on Iran, using "safe for civilians" tactical nuclear weapons against a non-nuclear state. . . The bombing of Iran's nuclear facilities using conventional weapons would contribute to unleashing another Fukushima type disaster with extensive radioactive fallout. . .

Comment: James Stone's article published on henrymakow.com is similar to the article he contributed to Newsletter 694. The destruction of Reactor 4's containment walls is a clear case of sabotage. It had no fuel in it, so it was not operating. Yet it blew sky high. Reactor 3 vanished completely, core and all, exploding into a mushroom cloud henrymakow.com. Fukushima may in fact have been caused by an act of war under cover of an environmental disaster.
Bill Gates Funds Technology to Destroy Your Sperm
February 01, 2012 Mass vaccination is apparently not the only depopulation strategy being employed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, as new research funded by the organization has developed a way to deliberately destroy sperm using ultrasound technology. BBC News reports that the Gates Foundation awarded a grant to researchers from the University of North Carolina (UNC) to develop this new method of contraception. . . Back in 2010, Bill Gates explained to attendees at the TED Conference that year his ideas for culling the world population, one of which involved increasing vaccination rates). Now, his organization is actively funding research into advanced contraceptive methods that could render individuals infertile. Coincidence? Full story: naturalnews.com
USRAEL off to War . . . AGAIN?
January 19, 2012 According to reports, 12,000 US troops have been deployed from Malta to Libya, perhaps as a staging area for an invasion of Syria and Iran. According to Russian Intelligence Chatter, the US is modifying its tank warfare tactics to adopt a kind of Blitzkrieg approach such as the Germans were using. For that, of course, you need superior tanks and a vast quantity of armored vehiclesboth tanks and armored personnel carriers with reasonable fighting ability. These tanks, woodland camouflage M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles, and few HEMTT refueling trucks would be ideal equipment. Full story: Filmed 1/19/12 near Santa Cruz, Southbound.

USS Enterprise False Flag!!
January 23, 2012 The USS Enterprise was first commissioned in 1961 as the largest naval aircraft carrier ever built. It had a stop speed of some 35+ knots, is over 1,100 feet long, and at its peak, could carry a maximum of 100 aircraft. It has served the US Navy well for 50 years but has outlived its usefulness, is past its expected lifespan (with the effects of long-term radiation exposure to her hull), and due to be decommissioned at great cost later this year.
Obviously the USS Enterprise, her crew and her escorts are being sent to the Strait of Hormuz as bait in a false flag attack by Israel's Dolphin Class submarines, which will be blamed on Iran. Full story: youtube.com

Comment: Uncle Sam and Auntie Semite, a wicked piece of work. Remember the USS Maine, the SS Lusitania, the non-sinking of the SS Sussex, Pearl Harbour, the Gulf of Tonkin non-incident, the USS Liberty, JFK assassination, Saddam's nonexistent WMD, Iran's nonexistent nuclear weapons program, the USS Cole, 9/11, and MOSSAD's motto, "By Deception thou shalt do war"! Is the Holy Spirit in your heart?
Comment: Even Bishop Richard Williamson knows there were no planes that crashed on 9/11. Meanwhile, the joint Israel-US war gamesdeemed Austere Challenge 12have been rescheduled for October 2012 so it appears the earthquakes will not eventuate this year.
PREPARING FOR THE NEXT CONQUEST: What does Libya tell us about Intervention in Syria and Iran?
January 24, 2012 As regional war threatens drastic and unforeseen consequences in the Middle East some commentators claim that humanitarian benefits justify Western intervention in repressive states. This claim is worth considering in the context of the events that have befallen Libya.
No one should be under any illusions about the intentions of Western governments in Libya following their activities throughout the 42 years of Muammar Qaddafi's rule. During this time there were 39 coup attempts inspired by US, British and French agencies, most of which were centred on Benghazi and the province of Cyrenaica. Many involved an attempt at assassination, as did the US fighter-bomber attack on Tripoli in 1986 in which eight of the 18 aircraft flying from Britain specifically targeted Col. Qaddafi's private residence. . .
Prior to the bombing, Libya had the best health care and the best education in Africa, free of charge. Essential food staples were heavily subsidized, while fuel was plentiful and cheap. Having bombed to kingdom come schools, hospitals, electricity and water supplies, oil installations, men, women, children, black Africans and Arabs, the planes and warships have departed. Reports of the use of depleted uranium and cluster bombs suggest that they will have left some areas dangerously polluted as well as poverty stricken. An occupation army is now preparing to arrive: according to former US Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, 12,000 US troops in Malta are about to move into Libya, while trigger-happy NATO troops already occupy the petroleum platforms and ports.
There have been victory speeches from Nicholas Sarkozy (who received Col. Gaddafi as a guest of honour in France only two years ago), David Cameron (who visited Egypt peddling British arms immediately after the fall of Hosni Mubarak) and Barak Obama. (What greater irony could befall those who were conquered, injured or even killed, at the behest of a peace prize laureate? What greater folly could the Nobel Prize committee have concocted)?
And still the misery continues. The entire 31,000 population of Tawergha are said to have fled their homes during the war and it is not clear how many have returned. IRIN has reported that the delivery of emergency humanitarian aid has been hindered by a lack of funding, despite the fact that NATO countries control over $100billion worth of frozen assets belonging to the people of Libya. In mid-December International Crisis Group reported that more than 125,000 Libyans now carry arms, while estimates on the number of militias range from between 100 to 300. Rivalry exists among the different bands which issue their own identity cards, apply their own investigation techniques and issue arrest warrants (and reportedly in Misrata continue to kill black Libyans). Feuding is commonplace. Meanwhile senior officials who defected from the former regime (possibly after payoffs from NATO) expect to retain positions in the new leadership. . .
At the present time amidst the chaos and the mayhem it is still Syrian citizens who control Syrian assets. This is not the case in Libya, where NATO troops control the nation's desirable assets, and the imminent arrival of US occupation troops, according to evidence from Iraq and Afghanistan, is to be feared rather than welcomed. . . The dark shadow of colonial occupation has made an unexpected and unwelcome return. Full story: globalresearch.ca
The Truth behind the Coming 'Regime Change' in Syria
January 25, 2012 The United States appears to be using a strategy in Syria that it has perfected over the years, having succeeded most recently in Libya: arming small paramilitary groups loyal to US interests that claim to speak for the native population; these militants then attack the targeted government the US would like to see overthrownincluding terrorist bombingsand when the attacked government defends itself, the US cries 'genocide' or 'mass murder,' while calling for foreign military intervention.
This is the strategy that the US is using to channel the Arab Spring into the bloody dead end of foreign military intervention. . . The Syrian government opposition bloc inside of Syria, the National Coordination Committee, opposes foreign military intervention. A leader of the NCC is Hassan Abdul Azim, who wisely states: "We refuse on principle any type of military foreign intervention because it threatens the freedom of our country," (January 19, 2012).
This is very likely the prevailing opinion inside Syria, since the threat of no fly zones will result in the same mass bombings experienced by the citizens of Tripoli in Libya. The fake Syrian opposition outside of the country, The Syrian National Council, is yet another US puppetnow allied with the Free Syrian Armybegging for a military invasion of Syria in order to "liberate" it. Of course the western media tells only the perspective of the pro-US Syrian National Council . . .

God is not Mockedof Men and Nations, One Reaps what One Sows
January 11, 2012 From his earliest days, as he writes in Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler recognized the ties of blood that Germany had with England, and he also recognized the need that both nations had, to stand together against the alien hordes of the Bolsheviks, with which they had hoped to flood all of Europe. Yet Hitler also knew that the real head of Bolshevism sat in The City of London, that alien state-within-a-state which was also the real ruler of the English people: that international communism and international capital were two heads of the same Jewish beast. When under Hitler Germany rose to oppose world Jewry and global communism, the English once again answered the call to destroy their German kin, all for the benefit of the Jew. During the war Ezra Pound, William Joyce and others also consistently attempted to warn the English people about the true nature of their masters and they were ignored, even ridiculed. This is the power of the Jewish media, to brainwash an entire people, and the educated classesespecially British Israel, simply went along in spite of the facts which lay before them.
This English soldier laughed at Hitler's pleas for peace. Today his granddaughters are sleeping with Kaffirs, and it is the Jews who are doing the laughing. At the end of the war, Germany and Hitler were destroyed, but where were the English? They all became subscribed to the idea that their German brethren were really "Assyrians," who must be destroyed in order to assure the prosperity of England and the safety of English destiny. They were all under the spell of Edward Hine and his followers. They all played right into the hands of the Jewish bankers of The City, who were the real culprits wanting to destroy the German people and the superior German economy, so that the Continent would forever be the slave to themselves. The great British Empire was gone. Today both English and Americaalong with the rest of Europeare being overrun with aliens. England is reaping just what it has sown. While yesterday's Englishmen blindly did the bidding of the Jews of The City, today's Englishmen are the slaves of Jews everywhere, and the public policy is a Jewish policy: that same policy of Saxon destruction that the Jews used England to implement on the Continent! . .

Comment: Brother Branham said there is "nothing to" British Israel doctrine; Revelation 7 "takes the wind out of it." It is one more Jewish HOAX and BIG LIE, however this article holds historic truths Jesus and Brother Branham tried to teach. Whereas formerly we were used to kill our own Adamic kinsmen in wars, today we are used to kill Adamic Israelites and their Semitic Muslim kin in the lands of their exile as "Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father had blessed him: and Esau said, My father will soon be gone; then I will slay my brother Jacob" (Genesis 27:41).
An article said that these wars are religious, and they are since the strategy is to bring political Zionism and political Islam together in controlled conflict to destroy the power of each, then to destroy Judaeo-Roman Catholicism and her (once) Protestant daughters and force the pure Luciferian worship. His initial objective is to kill those of the Old Covenant, among them 144,000 elect blood Israelites, and anyone of Adam's race by means foretold in Revelation 6:8, Genesis 6:4, and Matthew 24:37 to establish Lucifer's kingdom of perpetual life, death and birth.
BBC: Osama bin Laden CIA Agent, Al-Qaeda never existed invented by CIA
May 2, 2011 Terrorism: ghost in our own hearts. In a society that believes in nothing, fear is the only agenda. Watch it again and again until you have it memorized, and you are mesmerized. Full story: youtube.com
Washington is fighting an enemy that does not exist. "Israel itself as country is not the problem. The real problem is the leaders of the Jewish-American community in the United States who influence and corrupt our Congress to support Israel when we have no interest there" (Michael Scheuer, former chief of the CIA's Bin Laden Unit).
Americans are in the cross hairs of terrorists worldwide purely due to Washington's policy in the Muslim world, NOT because there is an Islamic enemy whose only aim is to kill Americans for their freedoms and lifestyle, insists a former CIA officer. Historian Michael Scheuer, author of "Through Our Enemies' Eyes," who worked for the agency for over 20 years till 2004 and was at one time the chief of the CIA's 'Bin Laden unit,' says America's greatest enemyradical Islamnever existed: neither when Bin Laden was alive, nor now.

Catholic Church rejects Surrender Terms from Obama
January 31, 2012 My Catholic priest, Father Larry Swink, delivered a homily on Sunday that I told him would make headlines. In the toughest sermon I have ever heard from a pulpit, he attacked the Obama Administration as evil, even demonic, and warned of religious persecution ahead. What was also newsworthy about the sermon was that he cited The Washington Post in agreementnot on the subject of the Obama Administration being evil, but on the matter of its abridgment of the constitutional right to freedom of religion. . .
At a time when the media are full of reports about who is ahead and behind in the polls, and who will win the next Republican presidential primary, this incredible uprising in the Catholic Church is something that could not only overshadow the political campaign season, but also may have a major impact on the ultimate outcomeif Republicans know how to handle it. This matter goes beyond partisan politics to the growing perception of an unconstitutional Obama Administration assault on religious freedom. To hear the Catholic Bishops and Priests describe it, our constitutional republic and our freedoms hang in the balance. . . Full story: newswithviews.com
Why a Regional Model for Israel/Palestine is Viable and Just
January 28, 2012 So, a lot of my stressing that these borders are artificial, is that also these national mythologies that suspend these borders and continue to charge them with desire and emotion and passion, let's scale it back and look at what the borders are: they're the construct of British empire to help get oil to Europe . . . the two-state solution is a ruined idea . . . as much as the borders of Mandate Palestine are a British construct, so is the idea of partition. Right? The British during World War I made grand promises to Jewish as well as Arab nationalists. And whether it's the Balfour Declaration or the McMahon-Hussein Correspondence, each group had its document that promised them a privileged claim to that land. And the British had a disaster on their hands because, from the beginning, the two groups aspired to a national entity. . .
Israel under Joshua did not expel everyone or exterminate them, but rather that they live alongside them. . . there's even a verse that says, "Until today the Tribe of Judah and the [Serpent's seed] Jebusites live in Jerusalem." Jerusalem is divided between them. So, there, right in the Bible, is the idea of a shared Jerusalem . . . Full story: truth-out.org
Post-Laodicea and the Samson Option
January 22, 2004 The Laodicean Age began around the turn of the Twentieth Century, perhaps 1906. How long will it last? As a servant of God who has had multitudes of visions, of which NONE has ever failed, let me predict (I did not say prophesy, but predict) that this age will end around 1977. If you will pardon a personal note here, I base this prediction on seven major continuous visions that came to me one Sunday morning in June, 1933. The Lord Jesus spoke to me and said that the coming of the Lord was drawing nigh, but that before He came, seven major events would transpire . . .
The third vision was in the realm of world politics for it showed me that there would be three great ISMS, Fascism, Nazism, Communism, but that the first two would be swallowed up into the third. The voice admonished, "WATCH RUSSIA, WATCH RUSSIA. Keep your eye on the King of the North". . .
The last and seventh vision was wherein I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America . . .
Now let me say this. Can anyone prove any of those visions wrong? Were they not all fulfilled? Yes, each one has been fulfilled, or is in the process right now. Mussolini invaded Ethiopia successfully, then fell and lost it all. Hitler started a war he could not finish and died mysteriously. Communism took over both the other two ISMS. The plastic bubble car has been built and is awaiting only a better network of roads. Women are all but naked, and are even now wearing topless bathing suits. And just the other day I saw in a magazine the very dress that I saw in my vision (if you can call it a dress). It was a plastic transparent type of cloth with three darkened spots that covered both breasts in a small area, and then there was a dark place like a small apron below. The Catholic Church is on the rise. We have had one Catholic president and will no doubt have another. What is left? Nothing except Hebrews 12:26. "Whose voice then shook the earth: but now He hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven." Once more God will shake the earth and with it shake everything loose that can be shaken. Then He will renovate it. Just last March, 1964, that Good Friday earthquake of Alaska shook the whole world though it did not unbalance it. But God was warning by a world tremor what He will soon do on a greater scale. He is going to blast and rock this sin cursed world, my brother, my sister, and there is only one place that can stand that shock, and that is in the fold of the Lord Jesus. And I would beseech you while God's mercy is still available to you, that you give your whole life, unreservedly to Jesus Christ, Who as the faithful Shepherd will save you and care for you and present you faultless in glory with exceeding great joy.

Comment: The seventh vision will take place after the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, igniting Armageddon according to prophecy. It was planned long ago and hydrogen bombs were planted in 25 countries around the world during the Cold War. In the 70s Dr. Peter Beter informed Air Force General George Scratchley Brown, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, of the coordinates of multiple warhead missiles in US waters, including the St. Lawrence Seaway: these were removed. Judaeo-Communist Russia replaced them but when Beter tried to report their new co-ordinates he found his contact to General Brown was cut off. He had been removed from his position by Secretary of Defense and CIA contact man in the White House Donald Rumsfeld, and the missiles remained. According to Wikipedia "the CIA was responsible for the secret death of General George Scratchley Brown because he simply knew too much." Hydrogen bombs are planted in bridges, dams, ports, railways, and other infrastructure across the nation. We have previously published several Peter Beter Audio Letters. The enemy rules within all colonies of the 'City of London.' The late Joe Vialls made similar reports, and advised nuclear devices are planted in Western Australia, host to major US military installations. Full story: bibliotecapleyades.net
The Feast of Trumpets Part I
Leviticus 23:23-25, "The Lord told Moses: Tell the children of Israel, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, you will declare a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no servile work therein: but you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord".
That was Tishri (or Ethanim) 1, the first day of the ancient civil yearmid-September to early October on our calendar. Trumpets were blown to announce the New Year and to call Israel to the Day of Atonement on Tishri 10.
The "blowing of trumpets" had been the signal for Israel on their march through the wilderness that would summon them to war and proclaim days of public rejoicing and feasts and the "beginning of their months" (Numbers 10:1-10). The object of the feast of Trumpets is expressly stated to have been "for a memorial before the Lord your God," it being specially added: "I am the Lord your God." It was to assemble the people of God to proclaim their King. At the blast of the priests' trumpets the tribes ranged themselves in unison, each under its banner and before His throne; this symbolical confession and proclamation of Him as "the Lord our God," brought them before Him to be "remembered" and "saved." And so every season of "blowing the trumpets," whether at New Moons, at the Feast of Trumpets, at other festivals, in the Sabbatical and Year of Jubilee, or in the time of war, was a public acknowledgment of the Lord God as King. Accordingly we find the same symbols adopted in the figurative language of the New Testament. As of old the sound of the trumpet summoned the congregation before the Lord at the door of the Tabernacle, Six Trumpets summons Israel to Judgment for refusing the Gospel Trumpets under the first four Seals, while "His elect" will be summoned by the sound of the Seventh Trumpet at the Sixth Seal in the Day of the Lord at the close of the Gentile dispensation and Christ's 'parousia' Coming to Israel (Matthew 24:31; I Corinthians 15:52; I Thessalonians 4:16), and the saints of all Ages will proclaim "The kingdom of this world has become the Kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever" (Revelation 11:15).
According to Maimonides, one of the main purposes of the feast of Trumpets was to rouse Israel to repentance. In fact, the commentator of Maimonides makes use of the following words to denote the meaning of the blowing of trumpets: "Rouse ye, rouse ye from your slumber; awake, awake from your sleep, you who mind vanity, for slumber most heavy has fallen upon you. Take it to heart, before whom you are to give an account in the judgment" (Moreh Nev. iii. c. 43).
"A detailed study of the Seven Church Ages is necessary in order to understand the rest of the Revelation, for out of the Ages come the Seals, and out of the Seals come the Trumpets, and out of the Trumpets come the Vials. Like the first burst of a Roman candle, the Church Ages come forth with a mighty initial illumination, without which there could be no further Light. But once the brilliance of the Seven Church Ages is given by Divine revelation, Light upon Light follows, until the whole of the Revelation opens wide before our wondering eyes; and we, edified and purified by its Spirit, are made ready for His glorious appearing, even our Lord and Saviour, the One True God, Jesus Christ" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 9:1).
The Seven Seals are God's foreknowledge of the contest between Christ and antichrist: each Seal signifies a finished work in His plan of redemption. The Seven Trumpets foretell Israel's chastisement while her national existence is in abeyance following the deicide of Jesus Messiah caused by miscegenation with the physical Serpent's seed and Talmudic Judaism, which is the antithesis to Moses and the prophets and spiritual Serpent's seed that induced the nation's blindness as Isaiah prophesied. Under the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet an election of 144,000 Israelites "who err in spirit will come to understanding, and those who criticize will accept instruction" (Isaiah 29:24; 66:8; Daniel 9:24-27; Romans 11:25-27; Revelation 7:4-8; 15:2-4). This is God's plan of redemption in Christ by grace through faith in a progressive revelation of His Word over time. Eternity will unfold after everything that is antichrist is annihilated in the lake of Fire.
Throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ's end-time Bride as Jesus said in Revelation 1:1-2: "The Revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave Him [after His assumption from the mount of Olives] to show to His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel [William Branham (1909 1965)] to His servant John, who bore record of the Word of God, and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw [in a series of visions over the two years in which he was imprisoned on the Isle of Patmos (95 96)]".
In Revelation 10:4 and 7 John explains: "When the Seven Thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a Voice from heaven say, Seal up what the Seven Thunders have spoken and write them not. . . but in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel [William Branham], when he shall begin to sound the mystery of God's plan of redemption in Jesus Messiahveiled through the Ages since it was announced by His servants the prophetsshould be finished".
The angels to the Seven Church Ages understood this mystery in PART only, as each was anointed with only a measure of the sevenfold Spirit of God to unfold the Word predestinated to bring the elect of his Age to new birth (Revelation 4:5). So long as the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals Christ was a mediator for ignorance of the fullness of the Wordnot for sin which is unbelief in His revealed Word. When the last saint ordained to the Laodicean Church Age was born-again, Christ's mediation was fulfilled and redemption was over. It was the hidden mysteries that sealed the Book of Redemption from our understanding, and the revelation of the mystery predestinated to each Church Age that quickened elect souls to new birth by understanding the Word for their Age. God is the Word, and so long as the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals men had only PART-Word. This put them at loggerheads with the Word, which is the mind of God, and they could only be born-again by virtue of Christ's intercession for their ignorance. As Mediator during the Church Ages, He received the revelation of Word for the Age, "winked at their ignorance" of the fullness yet hidden under the Seals, and baptized them into the Body (Acts 17:30).
Pentecost and the seven succeeding Church Ages were fulfilled before the Seven Seals were opened and revealed in March 1963, and redemption was over; still there remained an election who had not received their calling, of whom many had not been conceived. This vital though infinitesimal portion of Christ's "little flock" is His end-time Bride who constitute the Capstone of the Pyramid that will declare Christ the fullness in the manifestation of the Sons of God. As indicated on the diagram, the Pentecostal and Church Age saints represent those who were born of PART-Word and Christ's mediation for their ignorance of the fullness during the antitype of the seven sabbaths, rests, or distinct baptisms with the Holy Spirit in the first forty-nine days of Israel's Pentecostal feast. These nine dispensations or divisions that make up the Body were each born of a different portion of the Word: the revelation that regenerated the saints in one Church Age would not quicken the saints of succeeding Ages to new birth in Christ. God is writing epistles in the lives of His saints by what Peter called "the present Truth" thus we must "walk in the Light as Christ is in the Light" and not impersonate the Word for a day gone by (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7).
As Christ is no longer interceding for the ignorance of the saints, we can only be born-again as "the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, grants the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, enlightening the eyes of our understanding . . . For we know in PART, and we prophesy in PART. But when that which is perfect [the fullness of the Word] has come, then PART-Word [and Christ's mediation for ignorance] will be done away" (Ephesians 1:17-18; I Corinthians 13:10). The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form by the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6, which was the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:14-16 that is the Message of the seventh Angel. Not His Message to the Laodicean saints, but His Message calling Christ's end-time Bride OUT from apostate Laodicea into "the unity of the faith . . . once delivered to the apostolic saints" (Ephesians 4:13; Jude 3; Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11) by the revelation of the Seven Seals which finish the mystery of God.
This was confirmed before a multitude on June 11, 1933 when Brother Branham was overshadowed by the Pillar of Fire in the form of a star and a heavenly Voice announced his commission: "As John the Baptist foreran My first Coming, your Message will forerun My second Coming." This second Coming foretold throughout the New Testament was not the physical or Gk. 'erchomai' Coming of the glorified Jesus, but the second or Gk. 'parousia' Coming of Christ the fullness of the W_O_R_D. "Today we have, by God's help, the perfect interpretation of the Word with Divine vindication" (William Branham, COD, p. 1005:57). And because the Lord God knew YOU from eternity before there was a creation and saw you in this end of time generation receive and come into agreement with the fullness of the Word, YOU were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary (as were the 144,000 elect Israelites). With THUS SAITH THE LORD you and the Word are One; you require no Mediator and can speak the Word for the 'third pull':
Revelation 22:17-19, "The Spirit and the Bride say the same thing, "Come." And let him who hears say, "Come." And let him that is thirsty come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. For I testify to everyone who hears the Words of the prophecy of this Book, If anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues that are described in this Book: and if anyone takes away from the Words of the Book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the Tree of Life, and in the holy city, as described in this Book".
In Revelation chapter 4, John who represents Christ's end-time Bride was caught up in the Spirit in the time of the breach between the Church Ages and the Seals as on about March 8, 1963 Brother Branham was caught up into the constellation of seven angels or alignment of the sevenfold Spirit of God that anointed the angels to the Church Ages. As the Word interpreted is the manifestation of the Name of God (showing the folly of Jehovah Witness doctrine) so a man and his Message are one, therefore these angels were the theophanies of the seven Messengers represented in the Old Testament as seraphim. The diagram portrays the breach as the break in communion with God after the PART-Word Body of Church Age saints was complete and Christ's office as Mediator was fulfilled at the end of Laodicea. Brother Branham stood in that breach and received the revelation of the Seven Seals without which Christ's end-time Bride could not be born-again and cross the chasm to form the Capstone that completes the Body. (For a more comprehensive exposition please study "The Breach between the Church Ages and the Seals" Part I and Part II).
"A detailed study of the Seven Church Ages is necessary in order to understand the rest of the Revelation, for out of the Ages come the Seals, and out of the Seals come the Trumpets, and out of the Trumpets come the Vials." If we look through the eyes of John we will enter into the same Spirit which revealed these mysteries to Brother Branham, who said: "Now, Revelation the first three chapters deals with the Church; then the Church disappears; we see it no more until the end time. From Revelation 1 to 3 is the Church; Revelation 4 to 19 is Israel a nation; and 19 to 22 is both together, and the plagues and the warnings and so forth at the end: set in three parts. See"? (The Revelation of Jesus Christ, p. 13:24).
Therefore in Revelation 1 to 3, John who followed Brother Branham's ministry through the visions of God first recorded the Seven Church Ages out of which came the Seals as you will see if you follow in your own Bible. Every Church Age was charged to "Hear what the Spirit says to churches" through its angel with the promise of Abraham to the elect, and the warning of judgment to the non-elect (as in Revelation 3:1-6). For "faith comes by hearing, and understanding by the Word of God," sealing the saints to the day of their full adoption which is the redemption of their body (Romans 10:17; Ephesians 4:30). All seven Church Ages were fulfilled by Revelation 3:22 and as Brother Branham said, "I want you to bear in mind, there is a church and a Bride" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 119:6). "And as Moses called a nation [Israel] out of a nation [Egypt], the Holy Spirit is calling a Bride out of a church" (The Rapture, p. 17:82). "Just like Paul said here, "Did not the seed of the bondswoman persecute the seed of the freewoman? And so does the seed of the denomination persecute the genuine grain. It's always got to be that way. They'll not be heirs together. They're not associated together. They're absolutely two different promises, two different times, two different peoples altogether. One's a Bride and other one's a church. No comparison at all with them" (The Seed shall not be Heir with the Shuck, p. 17:97).
So the PART-Word Church was complete and sealed into Christ before when He claimed the Book and loosed the Seals in Revelation 4 and 5. Here John, representing Christ's end-time Bride called out of the church by Brother Branham's end-time Messagethe "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16, which is the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6 confirmed by the Voice of Revelation 18:4enters the Capstone of the Body where Christ reveals "things that must be after [the Church Ages]" (Revelation 4:1). The PART-Word Church is not seen until the prolepsis of Revelation 19-22 where Christ's glorified Bride of all Ages and the glorified 144,000 elect Israelites rejoice as they witness the Judaeo-Roman church destroyed, the beast and the false prophet cast alive into the lake of Fire and the remnant slain by Jesus Christ, binding Satan a thousand years until the general resurrection, ushering-in the millennium, and finally the renewed heavens and renewed earth.
Under the Sixth Seal John sees Christ's 'parousia' Coming to seal the 144,000 elect Israelites and the glorified Bride of all Ages (Revelation 7). And as under the Seventh unwritten Seal the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6 revealed the previous six written Seals and Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to "we who are alive and remain" (Revelation 10), under the Seventh Trump the 'Moses' and 'Elijah' will preach the mystery of the previous Six Trumpets (Revelation 11) and Israel will recognize His 'parousia' after the martyrdom of their prophets as we recognized His Coming many years after the death of our 'Elijah.' Under the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet Satan will be cast down to earth and incarnate the pope, and with the United States defeated and occupied by Russia in World War III Rome will unite the world church system to maintain the capitalist establishment (and secure her own survival) against Judaeo-Communism. Once peace is restored the US in union with the confederation of churches will become a mirror image of the beast forcing the mark of the beast, which is Rome's trinity, to bind the world against Judaeo-Communism (Revelation 12 and 13).
Also under the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet, Rome will persecute the Israelites and the mystery of the Seven Vials will be revealed to them to distinguish Christ's "little flock" from antichrist's universal Judaeo-Roman false church. Under the Sixth Vial as it appears in our Bibles, John reveals Christ's parousia Coming to His end-time Bride and "Three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of Rome, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the pope . . . which go forth to the kings of the earth and of the whole world to gather them to Armageddon." John shows Brother Branham's Seventh Vial poured out at the close of the Gentile dispensation, whereupon earthquakes cleave the mount of Olives and sink Los Angeles, and the judgment of stoning and fire comes upon the harlot church (Revelation 16:17 18:20). Then in Revelation 19 Israel will realize the marriage of the Lamb has come to pass and recognize Christ's invisible 'parousia' Coming with the Church and His end-time Bride to bind Satan, and restore the Kingdom to Israel for a thousand years of peace. If you remember what we read in Revelation 1:1-2 you will understand how John recorded these events from visions wherein he saw and heard Brother Branham ministering these things to us as the Lord revealed them to him.
Since the Seven Seals are God's foreknowledge whose hidden meaning is signified by Old Testament symbols, when a Seal opens a mystery unfolds and the angel to the Church Age catches the mystery of God not yet fully revealed and begins to proclaim his Message. His Gospel trumpet starts a Spiritual war and then a Trumpet of judgment sounds a natural war upon the Israelites for rejecting the Gospel Message. God takes His messenger with the elect of that age and lays them at rest. The non-elect organize a denomination around the Messenger and his work and Spiritual death strikes the church; a Vial pours out a plague or temporary judgment to separate the foolish virgin from the hypocrites. Then another mystery comes forth and another Messenger is anointed to deliver the Message to the next Age; this cycle repeats until the seventh angel Brother Branham gathers the loose ends of doctrine not fully revealed during the Church Ages. "Now this person, who in this verse is called an "angel" in the King James Version is NOT a heavenly being. The sixth trumpeting angel, who is a heavenly being, is in Revelation 9:13 and the seventh of like order is in Revelation 11:15. This one in Revelation 10:7 is the Seventh Age messenger and it is a man, and he is to bring a Message from God, and his Message and ministry is going to finish the mystery of God as declared to His servants, the prophets" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 323:3).
The seven Messages are followed by Seven Vials, and the Seven Seals are followed by Seven Trumpets. This may not appear the case according to the record of the revelation of Jesus Christ that John saw and heard ministered by Brother Branham in the visions on Patmos, but Brother Branham was teaching revelations hidden under the Seven Seals for the Church. Beyond their purpose the Lord did not elucidate the mysteries of the Seven Trumpets and Seven Vials to Brother Branham. These mysteries will be revealed to Israel's 'Moses' and 'Elijah' to illuminate their people by a review of God's judgments upon blinded Israelites and the false church under the New Testament over the past two thousand years.
The sevenfold Spirit of God anointed seven men through the Gentile dispensation inspiring to each his Message. That Message was the Word for the Age and as God's Word is creative and does not return to Him void but accomplishes that for which it was sent, His 'third pull' transformed the elect into epistles of Christ ministered by the angel, written with the Spirit of the living God in fleshy tables of the heart (Isaiah 55:11; II Corinthians 3:3). It invoked Abraham's blessing on the elect, and imposed the ordeal of jealousy upon the non-elect. This "temporary judgment" of the Vial exonerated the foolish virgin but plagued the hypocrite. Thus the Message to each Church Age is a sharp two-edged sword, and although Revelation 16:17 portrays William Branham pouring out the Seventh Vial it is NOT as if this will be a future event, for he poured it out when he spoke his Message as stated in Revelation 3:14-22.
The Bible reads as if the Vials are poured out at the end of each Age, but the judgment like the blessing is administered automatically as a function of the spoken Word (or 'third pull') of the Message in each Church Age. The mystery of the Vials not given to us will be presented to Israel's elect as an historical review to distinguish Christ's Bride in each Age from denominational flirters and harlots as a group rather than as individuals. Consequently the judgment is shown under the succeeding dispensation after the Message of grace has expired with the previous Age. Paul said, "Exhort one another daily, while it is called today; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end; while it is said, Today if you will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation. For who were they that heard yet provoked? Was it all who went out of Egypt under Moses" (Hebrews 3:13-16)?
God has apportioned His Word to different dispensations: we must follow God's program by "walking in the Light of the present Truth as He is in it, not impersonate the Word for an Age gone by." Each Age was endued with a unique measure of the Holy Spirit to quicken the Message to eternal Life in the saints, to administer the Vials to nominal Christians in the ordeal of jealousy, and to chastise unbelieving Israel under the Trumpets of Judgment for stopping their ears and closing their eyes to the Message of grace under the first four Seals. We should not suppose God requires seven men delivering the Seven Messages, another seven blowing Trumpets, and subsequently another seven pouring Vials. The seven portions of the Spirit that delivered the Messages of grace and offered back to God the prayers or revelation of the saints of their Church Age also minister the Vials of wrath or trial of Jealousy and the Trumpet judgments.
As the Vials follow the Church Ages the Seven Trumpets which sound through the Gentile dispensation follow the Seals calling Israelites to judgment for failing to "bow the knee to Joseph" whose coming was announced by the sevenfold Spirit of God through the Messenger in each Age, so the trumpeting angels are "heavenly beings". nl721.htm
