Bible Believers' Newsletter 900
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it is a privilege to fellowship with you in God's Word.
According to the 1871 military blueprint, World War III was to be artificially manipulated by bringing political Zionism into controlled conflict with political Islam, and the current news bears this out. Prominent among the political Zionists are the stateless Jew Barack Obama, English Jew David Cameron, German Jew Angela Merkel, French Jew François Hollande, Turkish Donmeh Jews Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Saudi King Salman, the Australian Jew Malcolm 'Moishe' Turnbull, New Zealand Jew John Keys, Israeli Jew Benjamin Netanyahu, Ukrainian Jew Petro Poroshenko, and many others not one of whom is a Semitic Israelite. There is a dearth of prominent political Islamists as the Islamists are predominantly irreligious mercenaries, murderous soldiers of fortune deployed by the same 'hidden hand' that pulls the strings of the political Zionists and is a construct of the CIA deployed to destabilize and conquer oil rich Muslim nations.
Our main article this week, "Rightly Dividing the Word," bears careful study as it reveals the lateness of the hour. One day the foolish virgin will declare, "I thought there was supposed to be a rapture." Not realizing it has been in process for fifty two years as I speak.
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.
Is Britain being 'prepared' for a World War?
December 7, 2015 Without being threatened by an invading force of any type, the British government, along with its Western counterparts, particularly America and France are imposing warrantless mass surveillance, deploying the illegal strategies of kidnappings and rendition, complicity in torture and for the first time since the World War, extra-judicial murder of its own citizens. We have also recently witnessed the beginnings of identification of war critics with David Cameron's recent and extreme 'terrorist sympathisers' accusations in parliament.
Today, you can be arrested without charge and held by police for 28 days in a cell. This capability by government was not legally available for any more than 24 hours until recent years . . . Never in the UK have we had secret courts. Today we do . . . Agent provocateurs are routinely deployed by the authorities to cause trouble at protest meetings to generate a violent reaction that causes unjustified arrests . . . Turkey has just proved that a global conflict is but one act of stupidity away from catastrophe. Iraq has now asked Russia to expel Turkey's troops and war planes from its land. Israel has just started bombing Syria; even Germany wants to send its special forces ground troops. Full story: truepublica.org.uk
Comment: In Poland deputy defense minister Tomasz Szatkowski told local media . . . the ministry was discussing whether to ask for access to NATO's "nuclear sharing" program, which allows non-nuclear states to borrow the arms from the US . . . the Polish government and President Andrzej Duda were "completely controlled by some political circles in the United States . . . If the Republicans win, then Poland might become one of the most aggressive and hawkish countries in Europe" (sputniknews.com).
Week Nine of the Russian Intervention in Syria: The Empire Strikes Back
December 5, 2015 The Empire correctly identified the weakness of the Russian force in Syria; and it decided to use Turkey to provide itself an element of plausible deniability. This attack is probably only the first step of a much larger campaign to "push back" Russia from the Turkish border. The next step, apparently, includes the dispatching of western forces into Syria, initially only as 'advisors', but eventually as Special Forces and forward air controllers . . .
Economic sanctions: Russia has declared a number of sanctions against Turkey, including the freezing of the Turkish Stream project.
Political sanctions: here Russia will use one of her most terrifying weapons: the truth. The Russian military presented a devastating series of photos and videos shot by Russian air and space assets proving that Turkey does, indeed, purchase oil from Daesh . . .

US gives ISIS 45 Minute Warning before Bombs & 'runs out of Ammo'
December 2, 2015 Since the Russians began dropping real bombs on real ISIS targets in Syria, the United States and NATO have been forced to engage a two-sided propaganda campaign that swears opposition to ISIS while simultaneously doing everything it can to facilitate and protect ISIS forces on the ground. It has also found itself in the bizarre position of trying to facilitate the death squad army while, at the same time, attempting to play catch-up to the Russians in at least the appearance of bombing ISIS . . .
Even with the new attempt to be seen as truly aimed at fighting ISIS in the eyes of the gullible American public, the US has been forced to use videos and photographs from Russian bombings to purvey across the mainstream media due to the fact that American strikes on ISIS oil trucks are so rare. The pathetic propaganda fail by the United States military now stands as yet one more example of how the United States is not at all interested in defeating ISIS but instead on defeating Assad, Iran, and the Russians.

No Brake and No Disclosure on Media Owners' Interests
December 5, 2015 The Times today carries an article on ISIS' oil interests, Syria and Turkey. Nowhere does it inform its readers that the owner of the newspaper, Rupert Murdoch, has a vested interest in this subject through his role and shares in Genie Energy, an Israeli company granted oil rights in Syria by the Israeli government. Dick Cheney and Lord Rothschild are also shareholders . . . It is a conspiracy.
That Israel should grant oil rights within Syria is of course a striking example of contempt for international law, but then that is the basis on which Israel normally operates. Of course Genie's share value will be substantially boosted by the installation of a neo-con puppet regime in Damascus which can be bought to underwrite the oil concession granted by Israel . . . It is a wonderful irony that there is a register of the interests of the board members of the Independent Press Standards Organisation, but no register of the interests of media proprietors . . .

Dialogue with everyone & fighting Terrorism everywhere: President Assad
December 6, 2015 H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad gave an interview to The Sunday Times in which he said Britain and France have neither the will nor the vision on how to defeat terrorism and their airstrikes against ISIS will yield no results, but will rather be illegal and harmful in that they will help in spreading terrorism like a cancer . . . Britain and France were the spearheads in supporting the terrorists in Syria . . . It is legal only when the participation is in cooperation with the legitimate government in Syria. So, I would say they don't have the will and they don't have the vision on how to defeat terrorism . . . This kind of operation is like cutting the cancer that will make it spread in the body faster . . .
If I am to claim responsibility, do I also claim responsibility for asking the Qataris to pay the terrorists money? Or for the Saudis to fund their activities? Or for western governments allowing their terrorists to come to Syria? Do I claim responsibility for asking western governments to offer a political umbrella to those terrorists and label them as moderates? Or for the western embargos on the Syrian people? . . .

Comment: The US bombing of a Syrian military base in Ayyash, Syria, and the Turkish invasion of northern Iraq . . . is part of a larger plan to Balkanize the Middle East, to strengthen Washington's grip on dwindling resources, to draw Russia into a costly and protracted war, and to ensure that ME oil remains denominated in US dollars . . . counterpunch.org
Questions for President Obama re. President Al Assad & ISIS
December 6, 2015 Which is most important to youdestroying ISIS, overthrowing Syrian president Assad, or scoring points against Russia? Do you think that if you pointed out to the American people that Assad has done much more to aid and rescue Christians in the Middle East conflicts than any other area leader that this would lessen the hostility the United States public and [Jewish-controlled] media feel toward him? . . .
Why does the United States maintain crippling financial sanctions and a ban on military aid to Syria, Cuba, Iran and other countries but not to Saudi Arabia? . . . What does Saudi Arabia have to do to lose its strong American support? . . . What bothers you more: The Saudi bombing of the people of Yemen or the [alien] Syrian ['rebels'] bombing of the people of Syria? Does the fact that ISIS never attacks Israel raise any question in your mind? . . . Full story: williamblum.org
China's Yuan will be the Third Most Powerful Currency in the IMF Basket
December 8, 2015 In spite of the fierce opposition of the US treasury Department, on November 30 the IMF finally approved the inclusion of the yuan in the Special Drawing Rights, the currency basket created in 1969 to complement the official reserves of the members of the multilateral organization. With this the Chinese currency will become, next October 1 (2016), part of the integrating fifth of the IMF basket. The financial influence of China on a world scale will continue to grow at high velocity: the weight of the yuan in the Special Drawing Rights will be greater in comparison with the Japanese yen and the pound sterling.

"Enlightenment is man's leaving his self-caused immaturity. Immaturity is the incapacity to use one's intelligence without the guidance of another. Such immaturity is self-caused, if it is not caused by lack of intelligence, but by lack of determination and courage to use one's intelligence without being guided by another. Sapere Aude! [dare to know]. Have the courage to use your own intelligence is therefore the motto of the enlightenment" Immanuel Kant (1784).
This website is about enlightenment, maturity, and courage:
It aims at enlightening all its visitors about one of the most influential issues of modern history: The alleged deliberate mass murder of six million Jews by Nazi Germany mainly by means of gas chambers during World War Two.
- It requires that the visitor be mature, that is: that he or she is capable of using their own intelligence without the guidance of another.
- And finally, it requires courage to open the mind to well-founded, rational, yet at once truly mind-blowing and, some would say, sacrilegious thoughts.
- Are you ready for your own dose of enlightenment? Watch, listen and read, and find out for yourself!

An Historical Critique of Islam's Beginnings
September 12, 2013 Jay Smith, an evangelist, apologist and missionary to Muslims believes that although both Islam and Christianity include radicals, moderates, and liberals, it is radical Muslims who commit violence as they take the Qur'an seriously; while radical Christians who also take the Bible seriously serve others in love. Radical Muslims model their lives on Muhammad; while radical Christians model their lives on Jesus Christ. If Muslims applied the same standard to their own beliefs as they do to the Bible they would see they have not a leg to stand on. The Koran is contrived; none of the manuscripts came into existence before the 8th century, which means that Mohammed had nothing to do with the Koran. There are, by the way fifteen different Korans. Abdul Malek created an identity for Arabs: Mohammed. Romans 13:11, "Now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed". Full story: youtube.com
Comment: This Youtube presentation shows the Talmud is the basis of the Koran which duplicates its contemptible aims. Every point on which this presenter condemns the Koran originated in the Babylonian Talmud; for instance Sanhedrin 57a, Baba Kamma 113a and Moed Kattan 17a, as borne out in The Talmud Unmasked, Truth about the Talmud. The second presenter has not learned the true origin and history of Mohammed and the Koran but is repeating hearsay; the caravan routes went through Petra in Jordan, not Mecca in Arabia.
What's so funny about Free Market Capitalism? Unscriptural Evil of Equality
November 11, 2015 In his 1972 campaign speech, opposition leader Gough Whitlam promised that if elected prime minister he would lead a new drive for equality and "fair and equal shares in the wealth and opportunities." Yet more than four decades later and, despite governments of all persuasions broadly following Whitlam's lead, instead of the wealth gap shrinking, it has widened to the point that Australia is above the OECD average when inequality has worsened universally.
German philosopher Georg Hegel was surely right when he said: "We learn from history that we don't learn from history." How else to explain the uncritical pursuit of policies that for 43 years have failed in their good intentions? Yet, just one month into office, even after this epic fail, Malcolm Turnbull is demonstrating his "equality" credentials by talking "fairness" and going soft on middle-class welfare.
George Orwell tells us: "The thing that attracts ordinary men to socialism, and makes them willing to risk their skins for it, is the idea of equality; to the vast majority of people socialism means a classless society or, it means nothing at all."
Well, we've seen the socialist promised land and equality isn't in it. Equality was behind the French Revolution, the Russian Revolution, China's Cultural Revolution and the Spanish Civil War.
Without exception and, but for a momentary symbolic flicker, inequality was never extinguished. Wealth and power remained concentrated. Only the people changed. In the impoverished Soviet Union, the wealthiest 10 per cent earned seven times the poorest 10 per cent. In China, princelings, the descendants of those on Mao's Long March, are the modern dynasty who still enjoy remarkable wealth, privilege and influence. Recent flirtations with socialism have left economies from Greece to Venezuela in tatters and the despair of jobless youth and the misery of the abandoned poor are there for all to see.
Why then, in this postmodern world, when we know that free enterprise has so spectacularly raised living standards and prolonged life for all, do we demonise it as uncaring, unfair and outdated?
Free market capitalism, like nature, may favour the resilient, the ambitious and the fleet of foot, but rather than celebrate self-interest and see wealth creation as a positive contribution to all society, we are conditioned by the Left, from school days on, to believe that social goals and the collectivist vision are more important than private choices; that without government intervention, most will be left behind.
This is our world. A top-down social-democratic state where elites are patronised, competition is controlled, where private initiative is stifled, free speech is abridged and where the electorate is increasingly state dependent. Here, big government colludes with big labour and big business to socialise losses at taxpayer expense . . . Full story: theaustralian.com.au
Comment: Equality is an unscriptural Jewish concept forced upon the Goyim by Judaeo-Communism. In 1950 one-time Russian delegate to the UN spoke of "launching the most spectacular peace movement on record." The object was to "put the bourgeoisie to sleep," so that the final takeover of the entire world by the Communists would succeed through the element of surprise. This "peace offensive was launched by Khrushchev in 1956, (the year of America's last opportunity for national repentance), but passed largely unnoticed because of the dramatic diversion provided by de-Stalinization. The vital importance of Khrushchev's speech at the Twentieth Party Congress was that it inaugurated the strategy of "peaceful co-existence" as the means of achieving worldwide Communist dictatorshipan objective which clearly could not be gained by a conventional military confrontation.
This is what Jesus foretold. He identified Judaeo-Communism as a spirit called Laodicea, or "people's rights" which rejected Jesus Christ and His Word in 1963 when it rejected the revelation of the Seven Seals which brought Christ back to earth is Word Form (Revelation 3:15-20). The above article illustrates the absurdity of equality (Genesis 3:16).
The Truth about the Bible
May 25, 2011 During a question and answer session at a recent speaking engagement, a university student asked me, "Why do you believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God?"
Now this is a very interesting question, and probably one of the most important questions any Christian could ask themselves. What is so special, so unique about the Bible that Christians believe it is literally the inspired word of God?
In answering this student's question, I encouraged him to consider the following facts about the Bible. First, the Bible is not just one single book. This is a more common misconception than many people realize, especially with people who do not come from a Christian background. Rather than being a single book, the Bible is actually a collection of 66 books, which is called the canon of scriptures. These 66 books contain a variety of genres: history, poetry, prophecy, wisdom literature, letters, and apocalyptic, just to name a few.
Second, these 66 books were written by 40 different authors. These authors came from a variety of backgrounds: shepherds, fishermen, doctors, kings, prophets, and others, most of whom never knew one another personally.
Third, these 66 books were written over a period of 1,500 years. Yet again, this is another reminder that many of these authors never knew or collaborated with one another in writing these books.
Fourth, the 66 books of the Bible were written in 3 different languages. In the Bible we have books that were written in the ancient languages of Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic; a reflection of the historical and cultural circumstances in which each of these books were written.
And finally, these 66 books were written on 3 different continents: Africa, Asia and Europe. Once again, this is a testament to the varied historical and cultural circumstances of God's people.
Think about the above realities: 66 books, written by 40 different authors, over 1,500 years, in 3 different languages, on 3 different continents. What's more, this collection of books shares a common storylinethe creation, fall, and redemption of God's people; a common themeGod's universal love for all of humanity; and a common messagesalvation is available to all who repent of their sins and commit to following God with all of their heart, soul, mind and strength.
In addition to sharing these commonalities, these 66 books contain no historical errors or contradictions. God's word truly is an amazing collection of writings!
After I had shared the above facts with this student, I offered him the following challenge. "If you do not believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God, if you do not believe that the Bible is of a supernatural origin, then I challenge you to a test, I challenge you to go to any library in the world, you can choose any library you like, and find 66 books which match the characteristics of the 66 books in the Bible. You must choose 66 books, written by 40 different authors, over 1,500 years, in 3 different languages, written on 3 different continents. However, they must share a common storyline, a common theme, and a common message, with no historical errors or contradictions." I went on to say, "If you can produce such a collection of books, I will admit that the Bible is not the inspired word of God."
The student's reply was almost instantaneous, he emphatically stated, "But that's impossible!"
It truly is impossible, for any collection of human writings. However, the Bible passes this test. The Bible contains 66 books, written by 40 different authors, over 1,500 years, in 3 different languages, on 3 different continents, with no historical errors or contradictions. The entire Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, bears the mark of Divine inspiration.
The next time you encounter someone who asks you why you believe the Bible is the inspired word of God, try sharing this challenge with them. Better yet, don't wait until you're asked, just go ahead and share this challenge with a friend today. You don't even have to mention the Bible up front; just ask them if they think it would be realistic to assemble such a collection of books. After they say, "But that's impossible!" you've got a ready-made opportunity for sharing the truth of God's word with somebody!

Rightly Dividing the Word
You must recognize your day and it's Message. God is only writing epistles of what Peter called the "present Truth"; you must know what Jesus is doing now and see that part of His Word living through you, lest you impersonate the Word for a day gone by. So "study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman who need not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth" (II Timothy 2:15). We must say the right thing to God (Matthew 15:22).
The Old Testament was "a shadow and type of good things to come and not the very image of those things," however the image becomes more distinct as the prophecy nears its season of fulfilment. If a vision is Scriptural, it must be interpreted by the Scripture, or a continuation of the same Scripture. So Moses' life and ministry began to realize God's promises to Abraham; Paul's revelations were firmly based upon Moses, Brother Branham restored the apostolic faith to complete the Reformation and introduce the second or parousia Coming of Christ the Capstone, and two prophets will gather Israel into the Promised Land and reconfirm the New Covenant to fulfil the sixfold purpose of Gabriel's vision to Daniel and usher in the millennium.
Hebrews 9:21-27, "Moses sprinkled both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry with blood. And almost all things are by the Law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood there is no remission of sin [as the wages of sin is death and blood is the evidence of life surrendered for life (Leviticus 17:11)]. It was therefore necessary that the earthly copies of things in the heavenly sanctuary not made with hands should be purified with these [animal sacrifices]; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ did not enter into a sanctuary made with hands, which are counterparts of the genuine; but into heaven itself, now to be manifested in the Presence of God for us . . . to put away sin by means of His sacrifice." It was not the blood that purified the influence of earthly sin upon the heavenly sanctuary but the surrender of Jesus' Life that was accepted by the Lord in that "He was raised for our justification".
From Nisan 10-14, the Lamb of God was chosen as Israel's Messiah and King when he rode into Jerusalem "on a colt, the foal of an ass" (Zechariah 9:9; Matthew 21). Like the natural Passover lamb Jesus was tested four days and although He was found to be without blemishes all Israel decided to crucify Him (Matthew 27:25).
Matthew 27:50-53, "When Jesus had cried again with a loud voice, He yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; and [after three days] the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, and came out of the graves after His resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many".
Nisan 15 was the first day of the feast of Unleavened Bread which extended over seven days. The first day was a holy convocation and the seventh day was a holy convocation. It commemorated the solemn circumstances in which the Israelites commenced their national life; their exemption from the plague of death upon the first-born through the blood of the natural lamb, and their exodus in prepared haste such as to deny themselves time to leaven their bread.
On Nisan 16 the sheaf or omer of the firstfruits of the barley harvest, (as with the first-born considered the choicest), was waved by the priest by which act Israel consecrated the whole of the harvest of barley, wheat and other grains unto the Lord and were only permitted to use it when they receive it as a gift from Him. Natural and Spiritual Israel were God's firstborna dispensational truth (Exodus 4:22; Romans 1:16)one separated from the nations, the other separated from the denomi-nations (I Corinthians 5:7-8), each a token of Israel as a firstfruits of redemption, and the beginning of the world's great harvest.
The unleavened barley could not be eaten (or the Old Testament saints raised) till Jesus Christ the sheaf was waved, ground into flour, offered and accepted thus consecrating the whole of the harvest (of Old and New Testament saints I Corinthians 15:20, 23, Romans 4:25). The presentation of the firstfruits types Christ's resurrection on Sunday, Nisan 16 (John 12:23) that commenced and the feast of Weeks, Firstfruits or Pentecost, and whereas the former festival marked the absolute beginning of the grain harvest with barley, this marked the completion of the harvest with the reaping of wheat, the noblest of grains.
The feast of Pentecost or Weeks constituted seven sabbaths or forty-nine days. The fiftieth day was a Sunday like the first, and in the antitype the saints will "meet the Lord in the Air." It was on this day that the Old Testament and the New Testament Churches were inaugurated at Sinai, and in Jerusalem.
On the fiftieth day after the presentation of the wave sheaf "when the Day of Pentecost was fully come," an offering was made of the grain as prepared for food, and two loaves baked with leaven were waved before the Lord. It solemnized the termination of the harvest season as the wave sheaf of barley had signalled its commencement (Exodus 34:22; Leviticus 23:15-21) and as a consecration dedicated to God the food for the coming year. The two loaves represent Christ's Bride of all Ages in the Pentecostal Jubilee. When the "latter rain" falls upon all flesh the sleeping saints will rise and we who are alive will manifest that we are the Sons of God. Because of leaven the loaves could not be offered on the altar showing us that despite our corruptible flesh Christ's end-time Bride will not die or enter the tribulation but be changed in the atoms.
Ruth and Naomi returned to Israel just as the barley harvest began and in this fifty-day period they harvested the barley and then the wheat, so the Israelites read the Book of Ruth in the Temple at the Feast of Pentecost. There we have the beautiful story of a Gentile woman who by virtue of the working of the Holy Spirit became a part of Israel and ultimately in the lineage of our Lord Jesus Christ. Pentecost was a time for which Israel should have yearned, a day when Israelites and Gentiles would be blessed in their common Messiah.
The feast of Pentecost types the Gentile dispensation. It commenced on the last six days of the feast of Unleavened Bread, signifying the pure Word of God untainted by human reasoning. The seven sabbaths or rests type the seven Church Ages, born of seven different baptisms of the Holy Ghost followed by the present holy convocation of the fiftieth day that will conclude in our Jubilee and body change. The Body of Christ is being built from nine dispensations of the Spirit to fulfil His eternal purpose described in Ephesians 1:3-5, 9-14, 17-23 by II Peter 1:12 and I John 1:7 that we might mature into written epistles in the stature of the perfect Man (II Corinthians 3:2).
Satan is building his kingdom "by might and power" as God's "still, small voice" is speaking His kingdom to predestinated hearts able to receive the revelation for their hour by faith.
Unless we obey Acts 17:11, spiritual Israel, the church will share the fate of natural Israel. Isaiah 1:4-9 said: "Oh what a sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, descendants of evildoers, children that are corrupters. They have forsaken the Lord, they have despised the Holy One of Israel, and they are utterly estranged. Why should you be chastised again, since you insist on increasing your apostasy? Every head has become diseased, and every heart is faint. From the sole of the foot even to the head there is no soundness in it; only wounds, bruises, and putrefying sores that have not been closed, neither bound up nor softened with oil. Your country is devastated, your cities are burnt with fire: the Serpent's seed have devoured your cultivated fields in your presence: a devastating overthrow by Serpent's seed. The daughter of Zion is left as a shanty in a vineyard, a shack in a cucumber patch, as a besieged city. If the Lord of hosts had not kept alive a few survivors, we should have been as Sodom, and like Gomorrah."
Like Israel of old and Jewry today, Christendom is "apostate and knoweth it not," overthrown by the natural and spiritual Serpent's seed "as it was in the days of Noah" (Matthew 24:37; II Timothy 3 4; Revelation 3:15-20). "The daughter of Zion," the true Church, is such a "little flock" she is in the wilderness so to speak, unrecognized by the world.
We are not reviewing the historic past when Syria and Ephraim oppressed Jerusalem, or when Sennacherib took Judah's fenced cities. We see the "spiritual Sodom and Egypt" that is modern Israel emulating the moral depravity imposed upon Germany after World War I under the Jew's Weimar Republic (Revelation 11:8). Soon Israel will be utterly defeated which will allow blood descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Israel to return to the land of the Covenant without "fear of the Jews" (Isaiah 13:15-16; Daniel 11:39; Zechariah 13:8-9; 14:1-2; Revelation 16:19). Since Israel types the United States of America"a sinful nation, whose people are laden with iniquity," she too will be invaded, "the houses rifled and her women raped . . . a devastated country whose cities will be burned with fire."
Under the Law the two wave loaves could only be baked from what had grown on the holy soil itself. Viewed in this light there was a special significance in the fact that Antioch, where the name "Christian" first marked the new 'sect' that had sprung up in Palestine (Acts 11:26) and where the first Gentile Church was formed (Acts 11:20-21), lay just outside the northern boundary of Israel. Like the Israelites, Christians can only worship under the blood in the place where God has chosen to place His Name (Deuteronomy 16:1-6). Unlike the Law keepers we are not bound to meet Him in Jerusalem, for the place where He has chosen to place His Name is now in the Word for the hour (Isaiah 66:1; Matthew 11:25-30; II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7). Whereas Israel's sabbath gave natural rest for their mortal flesh and spirit, our sabbath is spiritual and eternal rest for the soul.
I Chronicles 17:1-8: "Now it came to pass, as David sat in his house, that David said to Nathan the prophet, Lo, I dwell in a house of cedars, but the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord remains under curtains [just as God's Word was veiled under Seven Seals]." Brother Branham unveiled the Word and revealed the Capstone revelation to prepare us to manifest that we are the Sons of God.
"Then Nathan, [knowing that God loved David], said do all that is in your heart; for God is with you. But the same night, the Word of God came to Nathan, saying, Go and tell David My servant, Thus saith the Lord, You shall not build Me a house to dwell in: for I have not dwelt in a house since the day that I brought up Israel till today; but have gone from tent to tent, and from one tabernacle to another," [as He passed from Church Age to Church Age and from baptism with the Holy Ghost by the Word for one Age to baptism with the Holy Ghost by the Word for the next Age when the Bible was veiled by seven Seals].
"Wherever I have walked with all Israel, did I speak a word to any of the judges of Israel, whom I commanded to feed My people, saying, Why haven't you built Me a house of cedars?"
"Therefore you shall say to My servant David, Thus says the Lord of hosts, I took you from the sheep shelter and from following the sheep, that you should be ruler over My people Israel: and I have been with you wherever you walked, and cut off all your enemies from before you, and made you a name like the great men that sleep in the earth" [as He has made Brother Branham a great man among the prophets and apostles] (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 12:115:1).
God's Word hid in the Ark under the Tabernacle and in the Temple (Exodus 25:10-11), veiled in the Holy of Holies until the Captivity. Thereafter the Holy of Holies was empty and from His baptism until Mark 15:37 it hid in Jesus Christ. In 1963 Christ removed the veil revealing the UNWRITTEN Seventh Seal whose mystery caps the Pyramid to fulfil the Tent Vision (Genesis 9:27) and reveal the real TempleHis glorified Bride of all Agesin the first resurrection and manifestation of the Sons of God.
David saw that the Lord should have His own House, not a house of masonry but His glorified saints. It is redemption time. Brother Branham has a name like the great men, six angels who sleep in the earth pending the first resurrection. When the Lord commissioned His Prophet He told him to read Joshua 1:5-9. As Joshua divided the natural land of promise to natural Israel, Brother Branham divided the Body of Christ to show His end-time Bride which parts of His Body are already fulfilled so that we will recognize our position in the Body and not impersonate the Word for a day gone by.
To illustrate, "Jephthah gathered together all the men of Gilead and fought with Ephraim: and the men of Gilead smote Ephraim, because they said, You Gileadites are fugitives of Ephraim among the Ephraimites, and among the Manassites. And the Gileadites took the passages of Jordan before the Ephraimites: and it was that when those Ephraimites which were escaped said, Let me go over; that the men of Gilead said to him, Are you an Ephraimite? If he said, Nay; then said they to him, Say Shibboleth: and he said Sibboleth: for he could not frame to pronounce it right. Then they took him, and slew him at the passages of Jordan: and there fell at that time forty-two thousand Ephraimites."
And we must say the right thing to God or we too will fall (Judges 12:4-6; II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7).
David was not permitted to build that temple but was commissioned to plan the Temple his son would build. Solomon was a type of God's Son Christ and Solomon's temple was a type of the [(Heb.) 'banah,'] extension or continuation of His Body, the Church, that John saw in Revelation 21:1-3 coming down from God out of heaven.
Brother Branham was ordained to deliver "Light in the evening time" from the BREACH between the Church Ages and the Seals, to dress the Capstone Bride and finish Jesus' Temple (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:27-28). A breach means divorce, and when the church rejected the revelation of the Seven Seals at the end of Laodicea it apostatized (II Timothy 4:3-4; Hebrews 6:4-8; Revelation 3:17-20) and put Christ away for this was Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming as the Son of Man. The revelation of the fullness of the Word in His parousia Coming separates His end-time Bride from the Pentecostals and others in the world church system.
When the Laodicean Church Age was fulfilled the Lord sealed the Body of PART-Word saints as He had sealed Noah's Ark: no one could enter because mediation for ignorance of the fullness of the Word was finished, and redemption was over. Christ is no longer in the office Son of God and Mediator; He is Son of Man, King of kings and Judge. Brother Branham introduced the Son of Man by the revelation of the Seven Thunders which is "the present Truth" and the one way into the Capstone of Christ's end-time Bride.
Christ is only marrying a Word Bride and we must say the right thing to God. As Revelation 4 and 5 explain there is no blood on the Mercy Seat which is now the Judgment Seat, so most of our preaching is to those Brother Branham termed the "total lost." Such as the scoffers outside the Ark to whom Noah preached after the Lord God had shut and sealed the door, and those to whom Jesus preached after His crucifixion when He descended to the place of the departed; men who had rejected the Words of the prophets.
Paul said, "Leaving the [baby things of the] principles of the Doctrine of Christ, let us go on to perfection (I Corinthians 13:9-13); not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, and of the resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. [PART-Word denominational preaching that is impersonating dispensations fulfilled long ago]."
"And this will we do, if God permit. [We must press onward and upward toward perfection in the stature of the perfect man (Ephesians 4:11-13)]. For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened by understanding the Word of Truth, and have tasted of the heavenly gift [of Christ] as conferring peace in the remission of sins and sanctification by the washing of water by the Word, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost [born-again], and have tasted the good Word of God, and the powers of the world to come."
"If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put Him to an open shame [as if He had been crucified as a malefactor]. For the earth which drinks in the rain that comes oft upon it, and brings forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receives blessing from God: but that which bears thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned" (Hebrews 5:12 6:8).
Matthew 5:45, "For He makes His sun to rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust." Paul is writing to the Hebrews separating Law from grace and showing that it is impossible for a genuine elect to repudiate his new birth and be lost, for he is sealed to the day of his redemption (Ephesians 4:30). It is impossible to deceive the elected on the revealed Word of God (Matthew 24:24).
The Church Ages ended at Revelation 3:22 and in Revelation 4 we see John, who represents Christ's end time Bride throughout the Book of Revelation, caught up to heaven in the Spirit by revelation of the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 which is the Bridegroom call of Matthew 25:6. We are now caught up in the rapture with both feet firmly planted on earth.
Revelation 4:1-6: "After the end of the seven Church Ages, I saw a door standing open in heaven."
What is that Door?
Jesus said, "I am the Door for the sheep. All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the Door: Whoever comes in by Me will be saved; he will go in and out and find pasture" (John 10:7-9).
"And the first voice which I heard [in Revelation 1:10] talking with me as clear and commanding as a trumpet; now said, 'Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after the Church Ages.' And immediately I was in the power of the Spirit: and saw a throne standing in heaven, and One seated on the throne resembled in appearance jasper and sardius stone: and an emerald-colour rainbow encircled the Throne [not a vertical bow as we see, but the full circle of a horizontal rainbow]."
"Surrounding the throne on twenty-four thrones were twenty-four elders clad in white robes, with golden crowns on their heads. From the throne issue flashes of lightning, and voices and thunders: and seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God: and before the throne there was as it were a glassy sea like crystal . . ."
This scene signifies redemption is over, the seven portions of the Spirit that anointed and inspired the angels to each Church Age and quickened the saints by the Word for their day have left the earth and returned before the throne of God. It is no longer a Mercy Seat for the Blood of Christ has been removed "and without shedding of blood is no remission" (Hebrews 9:22): it is a Judgment Seat whence proceed angry "flashes of lightning, voices and thunders, and before the throne is as it were a glassy sea as clear as crystal." Here the saints were "sanctified and cleansed from sin with the washing of water by the Word [which is revelation]" (Ephesians 5:26). Now the laver is clear, proving redemption was over when Christ opened and revealed the Seals through His Prophet in 1963. All of the PART-Word saints have been washed and born-again, Christ has departed from the denominations, and His Bride will not remain where the Spirit is not welcome (Revelation 18:4).
So long as the Blood was present there was atonement for every child of Adam and God could not destroy the earth; now the Blood is off the Mercy Seat and He will destroy all life on earth. He raised Russia to destroy the Judaeo-Roman church, after which Judaeo-Communism will destroy life on earth. What about us, Brother? Christ's end-time Bride and the 144,000 elect Israelites were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary and we are already in the rapture.
The One Person of God, not two or three, sat on the throne. In verse three it says, "He" (not they) was to look upon as a jasper stone; verses nine and ten say that the living creatures gave honour to "Him" (not them) and that the elders fell down before "Him" (not them). In verse eleven they cried, "You are worthy O Lord" (not Lords), and said this One on the throne was the "Creator," which is Jesus (John 1:3; Hebrews 12:2), which is the Eternal Spirit of the Old Testament (Genesis 1:1).
It was not until Revelation 5:6-8 (which follows Revelation 4:2-3 in sequence of time) that we see the "Lamb" taking the Book from "Him" that sat on the throne, as indicated in Revelation 4:2-3 and 9-10. This is the mystery of "one God." He, Jesus, came out from God, became manifested in flesh, died and rose again, and returned to the "Bosom of the Father" (John 1:18). It was now time for God (Messiah) to come back to claim His Bride and then make Himself known to Israel. Thus we see God again stepping forth to assume a physical relationship to man as the "Son of David, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and Bridegroom of the Gentile Bride" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 22:1).
After Christ claimed and opened the Book, "I . . . [insert YOUR name here because throughout the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ John represents YOU as Christ's end-time Bride] . . . beheld and heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the living creatures and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that has been slain to take the power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing" (Revelation 5:11-12).
Now who are these "angels?"
The angels are the true Church called out from Genesis 1:27 wherein "God created [(Heb.) 'bara' out of nothing] man in His own image [a spirit being], in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them." By faith He beheld the whole creation in His mind and saw all in Adam's race before the foundation of the world. Hebrews 11:3, "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the WORD of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear." These angels in Revelation 5 are the Bride of all Ages, so YOU were in the Presence of the Lord when He took the Book and opened the Seals, for although redemption ended in Revelation 3:22 Christ's end-time Bride was fully redeemed in Him on Calvary. You are now living the negative of that image or film positive of your glorified being He foresaw, and subject to sickness, heartbreak and decay. "The promise by faith of Jesus Christ in you who believe" will transform the film positive into real substance of glorified flesh (Galatians 3:22).
The Blood of the Lamb holds off Malachi 4:5-6, "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: and he [John the Baptist] will turn the heart of the apostolic fathers to the children or New Testament saints born of Christ [not the Israel nation that is His servant and ours and must continue in apostasy until it is born-again in one day]; and he [William Branham] will turn the heart of the children back to the faith of their apostolic fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse".
Malachi 4:1-3, "The day comes, burning like a furnace; then all the arrogant, and evildoers, will be stubble: the day that comes will burn them up, says the Lord of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. But for you who revere My Name [Lord Jesus Christ], the Sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its beams; and you shall go forth, leaping like calves of the stall. And you shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be [atomic] ashes under the soles of your feet in that day when I [(Heb.) 'asah'—fashion from existing material] earth for the millennium says the Lord of hosts".
It is LATER than you think or dare imagine. The Blood of the Lamb was lifted from the Mercy Seat in 1963 when the Church Ages were fulfilled and Christ descended "as a thief in the night".
According to Isaiah 66:1, "Heaven is God's throne, and earth is His footstool or Judgment Seat" (Acts 7:9; Revelation 3:21). Only the presence of Christ's end-time Bride withholds God's wrath in an earthquake that will sink Los Angeles, signalling the end of the Gentile dispensation, the 'hot stage' of World War III, economic collapse, depression, Judaeo-Roman world government, tribulation, the birth of the Israel nation in one day, their martyrdom and the consummation.
Christ's end-time Bride is the Blood of Christ by the baptism with the Holy Spirit, for the Life is in the Blood (Leviticus 17:11; I Corinthians 6:17). II Thessalonians 2:7, "For the mystery of iniquity is already at work: only the Holy Spirit will continue to restrain him until He is taken out of the way in our translation".
It's almost time for us to go Home. The Israelites have not yet returned to the land of the Covenant, and it will be unsafe for them to return until after the earthquake and the exodus of Jews in Israel's defeat.
Brother Branham said, "Every Jew isn't an Israelite. See? No, he's just a Jew . . . Paul never said all Jews will be saved; he said "all Israel will be saved." Why? Israel's name, that's the name of redemption all the way back. See? And all Israel will be saved, but not all Judaism will be saved. See?"
"Just like Gentiles . . . There's thousands times thousands of people, yes literally millions of these organizations that are called Christian, Church of Christ, and all such names as that. That don't mean one thing" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 474:3-4).
In "Gabriel's Instructions to Daniel" Brother Branham said, "God deals only with the
JewsIsraelites when they are in their homeland . . . as long as Israel's out of their nation, they cannot be saved . . . What day that God determines Israel to be a nation, that's the day that there'll never be another Gentile saved . . . Now . . . God deals with Israel only when she's in her homeland . . . When Abraham left the homeland and went down into Egypt, what happened? He walked away from the will of God and never was blessed till he returned back to the homeland. God never dealt with him, not one vision, not nothing else till he come back to the homeland."
"Look at Israel when they were sent down in Egypt, four hundred years, not one miracle, not one sign, not one thing happened among them, not recorded in the history of the Book: same old nine and nine: Go to church, offer the lamb, say a "Hail Mary," or whatever it was . . . We'll elect Rabbi So-and-so; he's got a better scholarship; he knows more about the Egyptians." The first thing you know, the Egyptians and all of them was the same thing."
"That's the same things happened to the church. We've all went to be Methodists, or Baptists, or Presbyterian . . . It's the way it was in Egypt."
"And God never did deal with Israel till she come to her homeland. Hear me. THUS SAITH THE LORD, God will not deal with His Church till she comes back to the Homeland, the Message of the hour. . ." (p. 28:115, 121-122, 126, 130, 133). Brother Branham is telling us in 1961, twelve years after the UN declared Israel a nation that the Israelites are not back in the Homeland; rather Jewish impersonators have stolen the land and the name of Israel.
Throughout the Gentile dispensation a Seal opened, the angel to the Church sees the mystery and proclaims its Message, initiating a spiritual war. Then God takes His messenger with the elect of his age, pours a Vial upon the non-elect church, a Trumpet pronounces a plague on natural Israel and their Jewish impersonators for refusing the Gospel trumpet calling them to atonement in Christ, and a Church Age opens. Now we will outline the antitype of Israel's last annual festivals: the feast of the Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, and the feast of Tabernacles.
There were 180-days between the compulsory annual assemblies of Passover and the feast of Tabernacles. Tishri 1 commenced the sabbatical year and the year of Jubilee with a holy convocation on which the feast of Trumpets reminded the people of their Covenant (Malachi 4:4) and to solemnly prepare to observe the Day of Atonement on Tishri 10. Tishri was the seventh month of the ecclesiastical year but the first month of the Civil New Year. It was the month for sowing, as well as the ingathering of the last ripe fruits.
The antitype of the feast of Trumpets will occupy the three and a half year ministry of Israel's two witnesses during the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Daniel 7:25; 12:7; 8:24; 9:27; Revelation 11:1-7; 13:5). These two Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4, Matthew 24:31 and Revelation 11 will expound the mystery of Israel's Seven Trumpets. The sounding of Israel's Seventh or Great Trumpet will signal the close of the Gentile dispensation (Revelation 11:15-19) and call Israel to her Day of Atonement or new birth by the revelation of her Seven Trumpet mysteries (Isaiah 66:8; Matthew 17; Acts 1:6, 9-11).
Tishri 10, the Day of Atonement (Leviticus 23:27; 25:9; 16:29; Numbers 29:7; Zechariah 12:113:9) was the day on which, when the Temple was extant, Israel mourned their sins of the past year that had metaphorically accumulated in the Holy of Holies because the blood of bulls and goats could not remit sin. However there was an annual cleansing of the Sanctuary whereby two goats represented Christ: one goat bore sin's price in death whereas the other goat carried the sin away, showing what Messiah accomplished on Calvary two thousand years before.
Leviticus 23:29-32, "Whoever does not humble himself and afflict his soul on the Day of Atonement shall be cut off from among his people. And whoever does any work on this particular day God will destroy from among His people. You shall do no work whatever: it is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. It shall be for you a perfect sabbath of rest, and you shall humble your souls on the ninth of the month at eventide, from one evening to the next you will keep your sabbath."
"Afflicting the soul" implies the essence of scriptural fasting that lies in penitence and self humiliation; the precise mode of subduing the spirit, and of expressing sorrow for sin, is left to the conscientious discretion of each individual. There was no fast in the Mosaic calendar.
Isaiah 61:1-3, "The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me; because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He has sent Me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord." Israel rejected this jubilee when it killed Messiah.
Luke 4:16-21 records Jesus reading these words of Isaiah's prophecy concerning His ministry in the synagogue at Nazareth, "And He closed the Book, and gave it back to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on Him. And He began to say to them, This day is this Scripture fulfilled in your ears." He stopped reading in the middle of the verse because the balance pertains to His second or 'parousia' Coming.
Brother Branham preached "the day of vengeance of our God." After our Home going Israel's two witnesses will call out 144,000 elect Israelites to mourn their Day of Atonement following their belated revelation of Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming and their recognition that "by wicked hands Israel had crucified and slain" Messiah (Acts 2:23). This will be the birth of the nation in one day, He will "comfort all that mourn; and grant those that mourn in Zion, a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise in place of the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He might be glorified" (Isaiah 66:1-10; Zechariah 12:10-12; Matthew 24:30; Revelation 1:7).
This will be Israel's Jubilee following the martyrdom of their witnesses in the second half of the Seventieth Week. When they recognize Christ's parousia and "make reconciliation for iniquity" the "Hear ye Him," of Matthew 17:8 will be fulfilled, and they will seal their faith in martyrdom (Leviticus 26:40-46; Daniel 9:24).
Revelation 19:1-16, "After these things . . ." the Seals, Trumpet Plagues and Woes, the casting out of Satan, the tribulation, the setting up of the Millennium by the new birth and martyrdom of 144,000 elect Israelites . . . we see 144,000 in heaven rejoicing over the nuclear destruction of the great harlot, Papal Rome, and the annihilation of her (once) Protestant US image in Revelation 18. They recognize Christ's end-time Bride is a W_O_R_D Bride and declare, "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come to pass and His wife has made herself ready. [Dressed in the revealed Word of the Message of Revelation 10:7 we go to the Wedding Supper in the Sky, not to the marriage which proceeded throughout two thousand years of the Gentile dispensation]. And it was granted her that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousnesses of saints. And the angel [Brother Branham] said to [your name] ... Write: 'Blessed are those who are invited to the Wedding Banquet of the Lamb.' And he also told me, These are the true Words of God" [or THUS SAITH THE LORD. "And we do have today, by God's help, the perfect interpretation of the Word with Divine vindication. Then that which is in part is done away with" (COD, p. 1005:57)].
"And . . . some over-excited followers of Brother Branham . . . fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto . . . them . . ., 'You must not do that: I am a fellow servant with you, and of your brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God.' For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy".
In Revelation 19:11-21 we see a vision of our heavenly Bridegroom descending with the vindicated Word of His earthly Bride to battle the Beast. As described by the Prophet: "Here comes Satan with all four corners of the earth with his Protestants and with his Catholics, and all together, marching right up to the battle of Armageddon. All right. And here comes Jesus coming down from heaven with resurrected saints, vindicated Word."
"As I said, "If God speaks and sends you He backs up what you say." See, see? Notice, if you're an ambassador from heaven, all heaven's behind you. And heaven is consisted of the Word."
"Notice now, He's come with resurrected saints, vindicating that His Word is true. So Satan knows then the bottomless pits is ready for him. See? Oh, my. While death rode the pale horse, mixed creed and denominations and followed him . . . Oh, my, the eternal separation from God, that's where he rode them to, eternal separation. Christ rode His Church right into glory in the resurrection . . ."
"The first Elijah was a rejected man by the churches. And Jezebel and Ahab was the head of them churches: church and state, it's all together [a type of the United States image to the beast]. And Elijah revealed Ahab's sins to him and commanded the whole church to turn back to the true Word."
"If that isn't exactly what the second Elijah is supposed to do when he comes to this church in this day: restore back the original faith. I don't see how you're going to squeeze away from it. That's right. Turn back to the true Word. That's right."
"Now, if you want to see their bodies, let's turn over here to Revelations 19 after the Word slays them. Now, the Word's going to kill them. You know that. All right now, you just watch and see what happens when Christ coming in Revelations 19, beginning with the 17th verse."
"And His vesture was dipped with blood, and he's called King of king and Lord of lords." (In the 13th verse, He's called the Word of God. See? Now, here He is King of kings and Lord of lords.) "And I saw an angel. . ." [Brother Branham, Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 14:9; 18:4; 19:17].
"And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: . . . (Out of His mouth, like from God's mouth to Moses' mouth. See?) . . . and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and . . . tread the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of Almighty God."
"And He hath on His vesture (a name) . . . on his thigh a name written, KING OF KING, and LORD of LORDS."
". . . (Now, watch, now He comes forth smiting. Who's He smiting? Jezebel and her Ahab, false prophet. [Rome and her US image]). "And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls of the air in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together to the supper of the great God;"
"He feeds them to the beasts and birds. Now, watch over here in the other chapter here of the Book of Revelations. . . "Kill with the sword and death and beasts of the earth." See? The Jezebel church, her actually body, is to be eaten by fowls and beasts of the earth. Just exactly like Ahab and Jezebel was in the natural, so are they to be in the spiritual form a church. Do you see what I mean? All right.
"Elijah was the prophet in the days of Ahab and Jezebel, natural. And He's promised to do the same thing according to THUS SAITH THE LORD, in the Word to the Jezebel, spiritual: His Spirit form of ministry" [Brother Branham, Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 14:9; 18:4; 19:17].
"Watch. Elijah, though in his day properly and profoundly vindicated, could not turn them back to the Word. Is that right? Though Elijah tried with everything; he did everything; he showed them signs and wonders; and they laughed in his face. Same thing they'll do with this spiritual. See? He could not turn them back to the Word."
"Out of the millions . . . Now, listen, Church, close now you that is going to be confused on this. Out of the millions in the world in the days of Elijah, when Jezebel and Ahab was reigning in type of the antitype today out of the whole world, there was only seven
hundredthousand saved of Elijah's preaching. Is that right? It's exactly."
"Look, Elijah never knew even one of them was that way. He thought he was the only one saved until God opened one of the Seals and showed him the mystery of the Book, that He had seven
hundredthousand that never bowed down to them creeds that they had. When God opened His Book to Elijah, He said, "Now, wait a minute, son; I got seven hundredthousand that's tucked around out there: got their names on the Book since the foundation of the world. They're Mine."
"God opened the Seals. That's the reason I think John was doing all that shouting the other night (Revelation 5:13). He must've seen his name on there. You see, see? One day God opened . . ." [a perfect type] (ibid, 325:1-3; 327:1 328:5).
Tishri 15-22, the feast of Tabernacles (Leviticus 23:34-44; Numbers 29:12-40; Deuteronomy 16:13-16) is Israel's third annual compulsory feast, a joyous celebration commemorating Israel's passage through the desert, and thanksgiving on the completion of ingathering bountiful harvest blessings of God's provenance. It points to the joyous rebirth of the nation of 144,000 Israelites called by the feast of Trumpets to their Day of Atonement many years after the Gentile Church has gone Home, and the restoration of the kingdom to Israel in the everlasting inheritance of the millennial antitypical Canaan. The feast commenced on Tishri 15 and extended seven days, followed by an eighth day. The first six days represent six days of a thousand years in which man has laboured against sin; the seventh day represents the millennium wherein all who live by the Word of God will complete a full day of one thousand years.
"Salvation" was the prominent topic at the feast, "So Christ shall appear the second time unto salvation" (Hebrews 9:28). When the first Adam died to redeem his sinful wife he forfeited his dominion and ours to Satan and bound us to time such that no man has lived a full day. When the last Adam died to redeem His sinful wife and rose again He defeated Satan and recovered our dominion of which the seventh day will be testimony. The millennium will be the transition eon between this present world of time and the eternal day to come. On the eighth day of the festival Jesus cried, "If any man thirst, let him come to Me, and drink. He that believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water [a promise of new birth by the Holy Spirit which was not yet given]" (John 7:2, 37-39; Isaiah 12:3). And at daybreak He came again into the temple [as they were extinguishing the large artificial lights, two colossal candlesticks in the center of the temple court, recalling the Pillar of Fire in the wilderness] and said, I am the Light of the world; he that follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the Light of Life" (John 8:2, 12).
Joy was the prominent feature of the eighth day of the feast of Tabernacles which represents that eternal day where Christ and His Wife will rule over the renewed heavens and renewed earth from New Jerusalem overshadowed by the horizontal rainbow of God's Shekinah. nl900.htm
