Bible Believers' Newsletter 903
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; farewell 2015, hello 2016.
Brother Branham said, "Oh brother, give me a church full of the Holy Ghost and God will do in one year what all theology's failed to do in two thousand years." We will see how Christ's end-time Bride matures in the year from Good Friday 2016 to 2017. The Prophet went on to say, "You wait till the anointing of the Church really strikes home to that faithful the little remnant. After the doors of the Gentiles is closed, oh, God will anoint a Church then. "He who's filthy, let him be filthy still. He who's righteous let him be righteous still, and he who's holy let him be holy still." And God will anoint the Church with the power of God, and things will be taken place ["in the manifestation of the Sons of God"]. Not only that then, but He's doing it now" (COD, 145:203). Yes He is.
This week's news emphasizes the incurable evil of our non-Semitic Jew-ruled apostate once Christian nations; in particular the rogue united States of America, the belligerent image of the beast of Imperial Rome that is slaughtering its way to the Talmudic one world government Jesus Messiah refused to receive from Lucifer, the g_d of this evil age.
Our main article, "The Great Exodus is at Hand" is a medley of excerpts from Brother Branham's sermons supported with Scriptures illustrating by shadows and types how Abraham's grace Covenant confirmed in Jacob's spiritual dream at Bethel was rejected by Israel at Kadesh and again before Pontius Pilate after Messiah had proclaimed the Pentecostal jubilee year. The title of our article refers to the third exodus. In the first exodus Moses called God's servant nation out from Egyptian bondage; in the second exodus Paul called His Sons and Daughters out from bondage to "the Law of sin and death," while in the third William Branham has called His children out from bondage to Roman creeds and denominational traditions into "the unity of the faith . . . the present Truth"what Jesus is doing nowfor "the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation."
What is commonly called 'the rapture' is the threefold PROCESS Paul explained in I Thessalonians 4:14-18. Because we were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary, every member of Christ's end time Bride was caught up or raptured after the Laodicean Church Age ended in March, 1963 as Jesus explained in Revelation 4:1. Together with the theophanies of our Church Age brethren we stood before the Throne when Christ claimed the Book of Redemption (Revelation 5:8-12). The "shout" was the Message of William Branham, the angel of Malachi 4:5-6, Matthew 17:11 and Revelation 10:7 which is "the midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6 confirmed by "the Voice of Christ the Archangel" in the heart of Christ's end-time Bride confirming the Message from Genesis to Revelation to bring her to maturity by "the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Himself" for resurrection faith (Revelation 18:4; Ephesians 1:20).
One Nisan 14 the "great or seventh Trump" will signal the end of the Gentile dispensation at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and Seventh Vial, and after three days the resurrection of the sleeping saints will commence. Christ came "as a thief" between the Sixth and Seventh Vials and has been present with us for fifty-two years: the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form (I Corinthians 13:10; I Thessalonians 4:14-16; Revelation 10:1-4; 16:15).
The Church world knows nothing of this because His second Coming is a (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming as the Bible foretold, and not the second (Gk.) 'erchomai' or physical return. The churches are apostate "and know it not," following unscriptural theology as Israel was following Pharisaism (Judaism) which is the antithesis of Moses and the prophets (Romans 11:32).
Redeem the time in 2016, making your calling and election sure. What Jesus called Laodicea which means 'people's rights,' is a spirit the Jews call Marxism and Communism. If you are truly elect Christ purchased your 'rights' at Calvary and you must surrender your will to Him. Seek a true pastor and submit to your pastor in the fear of God as he submits himself to the whole congregation, not just a clique. He is a gift to you from God, a messenger delivering the mind of God not his own thoughts but prove everything he preaches (Ephesians 4:8-16; 5:23-27).
May the Lord crown you with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ and provide your every need, lead and guide you into all truth throughout this New Year.
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.
Top US General ignored Obama, led Secret Plot to protect Assad and bring Russia into Syrian War
December 21, 2015 President Obama's top military commander secretly orchestrated intelligence sharing with military leaders in Germany, Israel and Russia to thwart the president's policy to remove Bashar Assad from power in Syria and lay the groundwork for Russia's military entrance into the Syrian civil war, because he believed Obama's anti-ISIS strategies were hopelessly misguided . . .
According to Seymour Hersh, the president's policy—that Assad must leave office, and that moderate rebels in Syria could be armed in order to defeat him—was built on major flaws. That was the conclusion General Martin Dempsey and the various intelligence teams that prepared reports for the Joint Chiefs made. There were no moderates in the Syrian civil war, as repeatedly proven by failed CIA attempts to arm and train forces that took American weapons and sold them to Assad's fiercest opponents, either Jabhat al-Nusra or the Islamic State. Moreover, removing Assad would likely lead to a situation similar to what has been seen in Libya and Iraq, where America's removal of those dictators created a vacuum that was filled by warring factions and fundamentalists. Hersh quotes Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency from 2012 to '14, who said of the White House, "They did not want to hear the truth."
. . . "The Joint Chiefs felt that a direct challenge to Obama's policy would have 'had a zero chance of success.' So in the autumn of 2013 they decided to take steps against the extremists without going through political channels, by providing US intelligence to the militaries of other nations, on the understanding that it would be passed on to the Syrian army and used against the common enemy, Jabhat al-Nusra and Islamic State."
Those nations were Germany, Israel and Russia, which all had reasons for cooperating with Assad. "Germany feared what might happen among its own population of six million Muslims if Islamic State expanded; Israel was concerned with border security; [nonsense! Israel is concerned with realizing the iniquity of the myth of 'Greater Israel']. Russia had an alliance of very long standing with Syria, and was worried by the threat to its only naval base on the Mediterranean, at Tartus."
Hersh then quotes an unnamed senior adviser to the Joint Chiefs who described what would come to pass:
"We weren't intent on deviating from Obama's stated policies," the adviser said. "But sharing our assessments via the military-to-military relationships with other countries could prove productive. It was clear that Assad needed better tactical intelligence and operational advice. The JCS concluded that if those needs were met, the overall fight against Islamist terrorism would be enhanced. Obama didn't know, but Obama doesn't know what the JCS does in every circumstance and that's true of all presidents." The advisor went on, "The JCS could conclude that something beneficial would arise from it—but it was a military to military thing, and not some sort of a sinister Joint Chiefs' plot to go around Obama and support Assad. It was a lot cleverer than that. If Assad remains in power, it will not be because we did it. It's because he was smart enough to use the intelligence and sound tactical advice we provided to others" . . . Full story: alternet.org

Bashar al-Assad: the Democratically Elected President of Syria
December 20, 2015 "Butcher"; "thug"; "dictator"; "murderer"; "savage"; "tyrant"; "oppressor"; "despot". These are just some of the words that many in the Western world associate with the Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad, after four years of incessant and hypnotic war propaganda. "Democratically elected leader of a sovereign country" however, is not a narrative the propagandists want to be circulated. The 2014 election in Syria is an event that the 'Ministry of Truth' in the West desperately wants to be memory-holed . . . In June of last year Assad won Syria's Presidential election with 88.7 percent of the vote, in the country's first multi-candidate election in almost five decades. In a country which had a population of 17,064,854 in July 2014 (according to an estimate from CIA World Factbook), over 10 million people voted for Assad. 73.42 percent of the Syrian population voted in the election, with voting only taking place in government controlled areas . . . The real criminals reside in the West . . . Full story: journal-neo.org
Putin's Progress in Syria sends Kerry scampering to the United Nations
December 23, 2015 "It is remarkable that western leaders only remember the term ceasefire when their rebels on the ground are losing. Why didn't they see the need for peace in Syria before the Russian operation started?" — Iyad Khuder, Damascus-based political analyst
Imagine if the American people elected a president who was much worse than George W. Bush or Barack Obama; a real tyrant. Would that be sufficient justification for someone like Vladimir Putin to arm and train Mexican and Canadian mercenaries to invade America, kill US civilians, destroy cities and critical infrastructure, seize vital oil refineries and pipeline corridors, behead government officials and prisoners they'd captured, declare their own independent state, and do everything in their power to overthrow the elected-government in Washington?
Of course not. The question is ridiculous. It wouldn't matter if the US president was a tyrant or not, that doesn't justify an invasion by armed proxies from another country. And yet, this is precisely the policy that US Secretary of State John Kerry defended at the United Nations on Friday. Behind all the political blabber about a "roadmap to peace," Kerry was tacitly defending a policy which has led to the deaths of 250,000 Syrians and the destruction of the country . . . Kerry's job is to throw a wrench in the anti-terror campaign to impede the coalition's progress. And he's willing to lie to do it . . .

US versus the World, a Majority of One in UN General Assembly
December 27, 2015 For decades, and again this year, the United States votes "no" on most United Nations General Assembly resolutions supporting meaningful disarmament and economic justice . . .
This is merely a sampling of the voting record of the US and often the EU, which reveals their readiness to violate the economic, social, civil and political rights of the "developing world," which comprises the majority of member states belonging to the United Nations . . . These UN General Assembly Resolutions without enforcement mechanisms merely express the gross contradiction between the "interests" of the West's "1%" and the needs of the huge populace of the other "99%" of humanity . . .

America was prepared to annihilate Prague, Warsaw, other Capitals
December 27, 2015 Recently-declassified nuclear targeting documents from 1959 describe how Washington planned to obliterate the capital cities of what are now America's NATO allies in Eastern and Central Europe. The revelation casts doubt on Washington's Cold War commitment to the protection of what it referred to as 'captive nations' in Europe . . . The US Air Force study called for the 'systematic destruction' of such major population centers as Warsaw, East Berlin, Prague, Bucharest, Tallinn, and others, as well as Peiping (Beijing) . . . There were 179 'designated ground zeros' for atomic bombs in Moscow and 145 in St. Petersburg . . .
For all of its propaganda beamed to Eastern Europe on Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty, the United States was willing to sacrifice the very peoples it proclaimed to want to 'free' from the Soviet bloc . . . [they] continue having their love affair with NATO and the Americans . . . who once wanted to rain nuclear fire . . .
NATO and neo-conservative propagandists continue to paint Russia as an enemy of the peoples of central and eastern Europe. However, it was not Russia that had nuclear weapons once trained on the cities of the Eurasian land mass but the United States . . . the eastern front of a rapidly expanding NATO would have been nothing more than a smoldering and radioactive nuclear wasteland . . .

Visas for Al Qaeda: CIA Handouts that rocked the World – an Insider's View
September 9th, 2015 Michael Springmann is a former diplomat in the State Department's Foreign Service, with postings to Germany, India, Saudi Arabia, and the Bureau of Intelligence and Research in Washington, DC. He was Chief of the Non-Immigrant Visa Section in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, from 1987 to 1989. In his position in Jeddah, he was routinely overruled by superiors when he denied visa applications submitted by unqualified travelers to the United States. The events of September 11th gave him a more profound understanding of the troubles he experienced in that job . . .
This is still going on . . . They just have a different brand name. They're no longer the mujahedeen and they're no longer al Qaeda. They're now ISIL or ISIS or IS or Daesh, pick it. Full story: snappages.com. Washington supports ISIS

The Great Exodus is at Hand
Matthew 24:37, "As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the [second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming of the Son of man be [as it has since 1963]. In the days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came and took them all away; so shall also the Coming of the Son of man be [and it was]".
Genesis 6:11-13, "When men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, the sons of God [Adam's race] saw that the daughters of men [Cain's race] were fair; and they took any woman they chose [miscegenation] . . . The earth also was corrupt before God and filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and beheld, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said to Noah, The end of all flesh is come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and I will destroy them with the earth".
Natural miscegenation types denominationalism. As the Hebrew dispensation ended in Israel's apostasy, the Gentile dispensation ends in apostasy and the translation of the Church:
Jesus prophesied that miscegenation, which was the original sin, would repeat in the days of Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming. Despite the fact miscegenation with Cain's race is genocide to Adam's lineage and was the great besetting sin of Noah's day, today it is called multiculturalism and applauded rather than abhorred.
In preaching, "The Mark of the Beast" Brother Branham said: "This United States is rotten to the core. Yes, sir. I can prove to you the very time when . . . This woman here, back in Revelations 12, when her man Child was caught up to set on God's throne, and when it did, the woman fled into the wilderness where she was taken care of for a thousand two hundred and threescore days to exactly the date of Plymouth Rock, exactly, where the church come over here for freedom of religion, and she established here.
[That would be 1620. Deducting 1,260 regular 365.25-day years from 1620, we come to AD360 which is the date of the Council at Constantinople where the Nicene Creed was issued as the Catholic dogma]. And we'll read on down in the 13th chapter of Revelations . . . the 11th verse. "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth . . . (not out of water, out of the earth). Then, the thickness and multitudes of people is water; then this is where there was no people, the United States.
"And he had two horns like a lamb . . . Two horns like a lamb," not a lamb. What is it? It's our American buffalo. Sure. See, there he is, "two horns like a lamb." But then what did he do? He had freedom of religion, first; he acted like a lamb; he spoke like a lamb. But remember, he never did become an old ram. He was a lamb. This country is only a hundred and fifty years old, you know, just a lamb.
". . . and then he spoke like a dragon. And he exercised all the power . . . the first beast had before him . . . (the red dragon) . . . and caused all that was on the earth, that dwelled upon the earth to worship the beast, whose deadly wound was healed." (Look!) And he does great wonders, so to make him a fire come down out of heaven . . ." (The atomic bomb, and hydrogen; smart, intelligent nation, and so forth, deceiving the nations by these things).
This United States will come to a time that church and state will unite together. And Protestant and Catholic will throw their things together to fight communist. [Because Judaeo-Communism is the enemy of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church that will refinance the US dollar]. And it's exactly playing in the hands of what God said right here.
And you Protestants laying yonder, sound asleep, reading a love-story magazine instead of your Bible. Out gadding around somewhere to some kind of a party, instead of in a prayer meeting somewhere; a fussing at one another about little old petty things that don't matter that much. You ought to be on your knees somewhere, if you know what eternity meant.
Notice, when King Nebuchadnezzar in the beginning back yonder, when the Gentile age was issued in, let's watch how it come in. And the way it come in, you'll find out it goes out the same way. We know that there is a beginning of time of grace for the Gentiles, and an ending of time. Is that right?
Now, watch, when King Nebuchadnezzar . . . When Daniel was sent down there, a smart prophet, when all the rest of the Jews had kind of humbled down and was bowing to the Romans, or to the Babylonians . . . But there was three, four men; three (Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego), and Daniel, who purposed in their heart they'd serve God. And then when they throwed Shadrach, and so forth, in . . . And Daniel had become a great man, and before King Nebuchadnezzar and Belshazzar, and so forth. When he become a great man, now watch, King Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold and set it up out in the field, and said that everybody would have to bow to that image.
Did you ever notice the innocence of it, who that image was made of? It was Daniel, the image of a man. And didn't He say, "the spirits of the gods," heathen . . .? And as they are today, got three or four of them. "The spirits of the gods lived in him," and they made an image to Daniel. And he said, "All that won't make bow to that image, will be throwed in the fiery furnace." You notice Daniel, [a type of Christ's translated end-time Bride], is off the scene at that time. Get what I mean? "And ever who would not bow to that image should be cut to pieces, or throwed into the lions' den, or burnt in the fiery furnace, or something, a punishment" [Jeremiah 30:7; Revelation 13:15-18].
That's the way the Gentile dispensation begin, with a pagan form of religious worship, with a persecution to make them bow to it. And the Bible predicts it'll end the same way, "a holy Man," Jesus Christ, an image to Him to worship it, and so forth [the then Devil-incarnate Pope (Revelation 13:4)].
You remember, in the "Foxe's Book of Martyrs," they'd hold a crucifix before them, put an ox on each arm like that, and would say . . . If you wouldn't renounce, renounce Protestantism, and become a Catholic and "kiss this crucifix." They'd start one ox one way, and one the way, and then pull them apart. They burned them to the stakes. They done everything. I've been to the old catacombs; I know what I'm speaking of. And see, that, that's right. And there they lay. And notice how they went through that days of martyrdom before Martin Luther. According to the Bible, also . . .
Now, notice closely again now. Now, I want you a great thing to notice. How did that Babylonian kingdom break up? One night when they went over and got the holy vessels of God and begin to drink wine in it, begin to have a big time, and get a bunch of women out there, concubines, and were dancing and revelling and having a big time. Is that right? At that time there was a handwriting come on the wall, "MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN." That right? And they went and got all their Chaldeans, their smart men, the lukewarm church members, and none of them could read it. That's right.
But they had a man there who could read unknown tongues (Hallelujah.), could interpret it. See what I mean? He could interpret unknown tongues. That's the way it went out.
That's the way she is going out now, with the power of the Holy Ghost on a people who's filled with the baptism of the Holy Ghost, who has power and signs and wonders. There goes the Gentile Church [(Romans 8:19)]. There's the remnant.
There's how it come in; there's how it goes out, exactly, a bowing and a forcing to a half-heathen religion [(Revelation 13:15-18)]. And God stepping in in the crucial hour and writing in unknown tongues, and the man interpret it. He could interpret. He didn't know that language; nobody else knowed it. But he had the same Holy Ghost that let him interpret that is the same Holy Ghost in the Church today.
You call It fanaticism. I'll admit they got a lot of it. But brother, there's a real one there too, is that right? A real one there too . . . The Devil throws every counterfeit he can right in the way to confuse you. And if you don't think no more of God then get down and read your Bible, and pray and ask God, then it goes to show you're not very interested in your soul.
Move right on out there and say, "God, I don't care how many old crow baits You put out there. I see Your Bible present, and I'm determined." That's right. "You promised it to me, the seed of Abraham."
God called you, you'll come to It; but if you're not, I don't care how religious you are, you're gone; that's all. You can't come; no man can, except He called you. And He's not willing that any should perish, but a lot of you will because you're too unconcerned about it.
And you'll go around and see something looks a little fanatically, a little shadowed, "Well, Dr. So-and-so said so-and-so, and so forth." And then you walk around and blaspheme the Holy Ghost. You know that's right, and it's never to be forgiven.
You're going to find out in a few minutes what the mark of the Devil is, what the seal of the Devil is, the mark of the beast. "Whosoever speaks against the Holy Ghost, will never be forgiven him in this world or the world to come." Watch that first church, what they done. Watch out about this second church. You could seal yourself out of the Kingdom of God and into the Devil; out into where there's no forgiveness in this world or the one to come. Truly. So be careful, walk reverently. Be careful what you do, for you don't know what will take place" (The Mark of the Beast, p. 22:157-176).
Israel types the United States; Ahab and Jezebel type the USA and Rome. The first Elijah types the third Elijah:
In his sermon "Why," (#62-0622E) the Prophet said: "Now, Israel was a nation something like this nation. It made its same mistakes that this nation's made. And we find out that Israel come up out of Egypt and drove the occupants out of the land and possessed the land; the same that we come seeking an oasis, and drove the natives here back and possessed the land. Israel had favor before God. We believe that our pilgrim fathers did also. Israel in its early stages produced some great men. Well, they had for instance David, Solomon, Joshua, great men; and we had a Washington, a Lincoln, and great men.
But finally Israel, in its politics, formed around and got a renegade on the throne: Ahab, a halfway believer, lukewarm church member. And Ahab wasn't such a rascal as it was his wife. She was the one that could just handle Ahab. Any way she wanted to make him go, she did it. And you don't have to be too spiritual to understand what I'm talking about. It's the system behind it. But in that day they had a prophet, and his name was Elijah, and he was a fearless godly man.
The first exodus types the second exodus; we are in the third exodus waiting for the iniquity of the Amorite churches to be filled:
In "The Third Exodus," (19:1 25:4) the Prophet said: "All right, the iniquity of the Amorites [highland-dwelling Serpent's seed] wasn't full yet, so they had to linger and wait before the exodus. But when the Amorites got their iniquity filled, then there come a spiritual exodus or natural exodus, to lead the people to a natural land, where a natural Amorite had once dweltcalled that their land.
And the iniquity of the Amorite denomination, that's called themselves "the church" so long till their iniquity is about fulfilled. There's coming an exodus where God will show who's who, where the church itself, the Bride of Jesus Christ will be exodused out into the land that's promised: in My Father's House are many mansions in this place.
You don't have to go there and fight like they did; it's already prepared. "If this earthly tabernacle dwelling be dissolved, we have one already waiting. That where I am, there ye'll be also." The great exodus at hand.
Watch how God did that exodus. What preparations He made, and study just a minute, then look at today.
[In his pre-Seals sermon "Jezebel Religion" (p. 7:31-39), Brother Branham said: "It's a striking thing to see the parallel between Israel of the Old Testament and America now. Both of them were great nations. Both of them had been founded, and their people had come there because of religious persecutions . . . [type and antitype] . . .
Israel had been persecuted by Pharaoh and had been in bondage for hundreds of years, where they were deprived of worshipping the true and living God, and had been deprived of that privilege; and they become slaves . . .
[And so is this great nation of ours. We come here, and on Plymouth Rock this nation was founded on freedom of religion because our forefathers had fled Roman persecution of the modern Jezebel system [Revelation 2:20-23], and had come up, and stood many great persecutions and martyrdom under that false system of Jezebel. And according to the Bible, of Revelations the 13th chapter, God had promised them an oasis and a place, for the woman was carried into the wilderness where she was fed for a time, times, and a dividing of time [(Daniel 7:25; Revelation 12:6)]. God had made the promise to America, or to the Church (to the woman) to come into this country. [The founders of Philadelphia had called themselves "the woman in the wilderness" as they fled persecution to Plymouth Rock, November 11, 1620. These Scriptures apply principally to natural Israel against which the Prophet types Spiritual Israel, the Church and her exodus to the West; the "time" is the end of the Law and Pentecost (Galatians 4:4-5): "times" are the Church Ages (Luke 21:24; Ephesians 1:10; Seals 408:1), and "the dividing of time" is Revelation 10:5-7].
Did you notice in Revelations 13? All the other beasts had come up out of the sea, waters; Revelations 17:17 said, "The waters which thou sawest is thickness and multitudes of people." All the other beasts, they come up out of the water, thickness and multitudes of people. But when the United States come up, "It come up out of the earth where there was no people." And remember, when it come up, it looked like a little lamb.
Now, a lamb has two horns, and that's civil and ecclesiastical powers. But when they've united, remember, then that lamb spoke like the dragon did before him; and the dragon was Rome.
When the dragon stood before the woman to devour her child as soon as it was borned, the red dragon . . . Who stood before the woman Israel to devour the child as soon as it was born and sent out a persecution and killed all the children from two years old down? "Rome, the dragon, stood at the woman to devour her child as soon as it was born."
And then we find that this country came up as a free country, and was a lamb, which means the Lamb of God. But after while, this same system that we have, spoke like the dragon and exercised all the power the dragon had before him.
They parallel, one to the other, perfectly. And remember when these . . . Israel came up and took her homeland in Palestine, drove back all the occupants of that land and possessed the land. We came in and took it from the Indians, drove them back and possessed the land. God had a reason for that. God was going to show the world what He could do with a little band of people that wanted freedom, and freedom of religion to serve God. ["Fear not little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom" (Luke 12:32)].
What did they do for Israel? He made Israel the most mightiest nation in the world, and she stayed that way until she got out of the will of God. What did He do with America? He made her the mightiest nation in the world until she's getting out of the will of God: parallel, one to the other exactly.
Returning to "the Third Exodus" Brother Branham said: All right, notice, before this exodus, there raised up a pharaoh who didn't know Joseph (See?), a pharaoh who didn't know Josephdidn't know Joseph. What was Joseph representing, the spiritual part in this spiritual exodus [of Christ's true Church]. There raises up now . . . We are freedom.
The woman was nourished for a time, time, and a dividing of time.
But finally there raised up a pharaoh, dictator, who knew not the freedom of religion, uniting them together. Don't let it pass you. There come a time where there was a pharaoh first had to come. And the organizations has lived lusciously, lived as a grafted branch into the real vine of Christianity, but it's still bearing its original fruitswomen half dressed, men intellectual and denying the power of the Spiritbut it's lived under the name of the Christian church. It's a grafted vine [(Romans 11:24)], but the Husbandman's coming by now to prune that vine, as He said He would do [(Luke 3:9; John 15:6)]. And all those that don't have the fruit is cut off and throwed into the fire and consumed. It's an awful thing to say, but truth sometimes seems awful. It just tells you, how God takes His children through the deep waters and the miry sands and things. He does it that way.
Remember, the pot must be broke into shivers, sheaves, little pieces, to be remolded and ground again. Look like a terrible thing to destroy it, but it has to be done thus, in order to get the pot remade again, the vase, or whatever you're making.
There was a pharaoh who raised up, who did not know Joseph, and that was the beginning of the beginning. That was the beginning of the exodus. And when that thing begin to form under a political power, begin to form, God begin to get ready.
The iniquity of the Amorites was fulfilled. The time that He promised Abraham was fulfilled, and the time of deliverance was at hand. And God permitted a pharaoh to raise up who knew not Joseph, and Ramses was born. And right after Seti come Ramses, and Ramses was that one who knew not the blessings of Joseph.
And he didn't know what the spiritual side was; he was only a political genius, that he could take Ethiopia and all the rest of the countries under military might, and that's all he knew was the military might [like the apostate United States].
And I think if any man was spiritual, could see what's taking place now. We're getting a pharaoh who knows not freedom of religion. When our [Judaeo-Roman Catholic] president [Kennedy] took his office, he would not swear to that, that he believed in freedom of religion.
What about the other day when we had this question of segregation down in the south, when this governor of Alabama . . . I wished I could talk to that ministerthat Martin Luther King, how can the man be a leader and leading his people into a death trap?
If those people were slaves, I'd be down there, my coat off, beating a way for them people. They're not slaves, they're citizens; they're citizens of the nation.
The question of going to school, them peopleif they got a hard heart and don't know those things, you can't drive into a people spiritual things, what's beat in there with political powers. They've got to accept it, be born again, and then they'll see these things.
But this man, if I could only speak to himleading those precious people, under the name of religion into a death trap, where he's going to kill thousands times thousands of them. They don't . . . They just get thethe natural side.
This man, the colored brother, when that great uprise come in Louisiana, I was there at the time. When the . . . There's a colored minister, precious old brother, stood up out there and said, asked the militia, "Could I speak to them; they're my people."
And this old minister stood up out there and said, "I want to say this morning; I never was ashamed of my color. My Maker made me what I am."
That's the way He wants him to remain. That's the way He wants every man to remain. He makes white flowers and blue flowers and all colors of flowers. Don't interbreed them. Don't cross them up. You get against nature [miscegenation].
He said, "I've never been ashamed of my color, until this morning." He said, "When I see my people rise up and do the things they're doing now," he said, "it makes me ashamed of them."
I thought, "God bless that voice."
He said, "You're only going to cause trouble." Said, "Look at the schools here. If we had no schools," he said, "it would be different. But who's got the best schools here in Louisiana?"
He said, "Let's take for instance, our city, Shreveport." He said, "There's a white school over there that's the old school. They built up another one. They haven't got one instrument, one play thing for the children; we got a yard full. And besides that, they've built us a great big marble swimming pool for our children; and we got the best of teachers that can be got." Said "Why do you want to go over there, when we got a better here? What's the matter with you?" he said.
And them people just a-a-ah and deadened the voice. There you are. See? Wrong inspiration. Them people were slaves. They're my brothers and sisters. If they were slaves, I'd say, "Let's just join with them and go down through the street and protest that thing."
They're not slaves. They're citizens with the same rights that anybody else has got. It's just a bunch of inspiration coming from hell to cause a million of them to be killed. They'll start a revolutionary; certainly it is. It's not right.
Men and women have their own rights. Our colored brothers and our Japanese and the yellow, white, black, and whatever they was, there's no difference in the color of our God. We all come from one man: Adam. But if God separated us and turned us different colors, let's remain that way. If I was a yellow man, I'd want to remain a Japanese or Chinese. If I was a colored man, I'd want to remain that way; God made me that way.
Frankly, there's a lot about the colored race that the white race ought to have. They don't have the worry; they're more spiritual. [Ham's people are not inhibited by intellect]. There's a thousand things about them that the white man can't even touch. God made them thus. Who could ever out-sing a colored choir? Where could you find voices?
I've seen them come from the lands back there, didn't know which was right and left hand, thirty or forty different tribes of them, and they sing to a place till the masters stand there and say, "I just can't touch it."
They've trained choirs for years and one will be an octave high and low and everything and say, "Listen to that," just perfectly, even in different language. They're gifted.
But you see, all this stuff has to happen; all because of a politician that you people elected with your crooked machines. And the other day when that governor stood there, sworn and elected into that office by the people, and the question of segregation according to the Constitution is, that each state can take its own thought about that.
He didn't care, but he read the Constitution and said, "Now, the school stands for segregation." They got a school over there, and only two colored children wanted to enter that school when they got their own college. But he stood and . . . He read the Constitution.
Then when it come back to this fellow we got up here that knows not Joseph, freedom, pulling for those colored votes, and not knowing it was the Republican party that freed them in the first place, selling out their birthrights to such a thing as that to lead them into a death trap to show that every manmade system's got to fall. That's exactly right.
And Mr. Kennedy, nationalized that "guard" and sent those men right back into the face of their own fathers, standing there under the Constitution; that broke the Constitution again. Said, "We'll not fight, no, sir," and said, "I hope the nation can find out that we're not living anymore under a democracy, but under military dictatorship."
My little son said to me this morning, "Daddy, the pilgrim fathers, when they come over here, were they all belong to this certain denomination church? Were they all . . ." said, "They had on big coats."
And I said, "No, honey, they come here for freedom of religion. That's what they come here to get out from under such stuff as that."
You see where it's got to now? Shows that all these kingdoms must fall. (I must hurry).
One thing, I pray that Brother Martin Luther King will certainly soon wake up. He loves his people; there's no doubt. But if he onlysee where his inspiration . . . and remember I'm on tape; you'll see it aftermaybe after I'm gone. That's exactly what's going to happen. Them precious people will die down there like flies. Starts a revolutionary, both white and colored will fight again and die like flies. And what you got when it's all over? A bunch of dead people.
But there raised up a pharaoh who didn't know Joseph. It's the same thing today. A man has raised up and took oath in the White House that will not swear to his oath, that he believes in freedom of religion.
What's this new pope saying? Four things that he has, one of them is to unite the Protestants and the Catholic together. And to any intellectual person, [Japheth], that's the thing to do. But according to the Bible, it's the wrong thing to do, and the Bible said they would do that. (Let's go a little farther.)
At this time Ramses in Egypt was growing. His power's growing. The natural man, Ramses, was growing. The natural man, the antichrist, is growing now through politics. He's already got to the White House. In religion, he's got all the people so scrupled up till actually they'd fall right for it. And the denominational leaders . . . Practically every church that there is in the nation is already in the confederation of churches. Ramses is growing, and they're all uniting together, and that's what they'll have. And what does it do? It makes a power, a beast just like the first one.
Then there's a persecution coming upon all those who won't unite with it, and a boycott. It'll be too late then; you've already took the mark. Don't say, "I'll do it then." You better do it now. Ramses was growing [Revelation 13:15-18].
But remember while Ramses was growing in the power in Egypt, God had Moses in the wilderness. He was growing too. Ramses had a political system. God had a spiritual system under a prophet ready to come down and speak to the people. They're both growing again. It'll be a showdown one of these days. The time ain't far off when there'll come a showdown . . . The natural types the spiritual. You can't get away from it. There it is; it's right before your eyes. It's truth.
Look at the church now, calling out, coming into power, the Holy Spirit coming down, the mysteries of God being revealed and set in order. See? The right here, she's already in the White House, and the church is pulling itself together (Amen.), not a denomination, but out of the bondage of iniquities, away from the Amorites. A people that's free . . . (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 1:16; Revelation 18:4).
God had Moses, His to-be prophet, though [like Brother Branham] he had already prophesied, and had proved that he was right, but yet, he was in the school of wilderness, hid away from the rest of the world. But he was schooled, being trained out in the wilderness.
The enemy will propose always his system, and unbelief will accept it, because the enemy is the intellectual sign. Now, remember, there's only two . . . Don't forget this. There's only two powers. One is spiritual power of the Holy Spirit; the other one is the Devil working through intellectual power. For that's where he entered in the Garden of Eden: through intellectual powers to make Eve believe in intellectual conception against the Word. It's just as plain as it can be; the kids could get that. See? And that's the way it's been all the way down. Here it is in Egypt [denominational Egypt that has the churches in bondage] this morning.
There is an intellectual power working in Ramses, bringing him up to power and raising him up, who knows not the freedom to letwhat Joseph had done, what the church had done in the beginning ["manifest that they are the Sons of God" in the end (Romans 8:19)].
The Pentecostal Jubilee is near to hand:
In his Message "Warning then Judgment" (p. 18:111-113) Brother Branham said: "Like Abraham, God told Abraham, "Your seed shall come into this country and sojourn here for four hundred years, and then I'll bring them out with a mighty hand, because the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full." See? God knew that cup was going to fill up. He was speaking with His prophet. He told him now, "You see that cup of the Amorites down there (See?), but their iniquity's not filled up yet, Abraham. Don't say nothing about it now, hold off, but it will come. And when their cup's filled up, and then four hundred years, I'll drive them out like locusts before you, and I'll establish your seed here in this land." Amen. That's the prophet of the Lord.
Now, when he speaks of his vision, whether it's wrath or whether it's healing, it may linger, but it's got to come to pass if he speaks it in the Name of the Lord. See? It might be a blessing that he speaks for you. He might tell you a certain thing, and you can't see it at all. You say, "How can it be? Why, it's He told me, 'THUS SAITH THE LORD, this is going to happen, and that was going to happen,' and it ain't happened. The man's wrong." Now you'll be judged for disbelieving It, but it's going to happen anyhow. See? It's got to happen.
"Though it linger," the Bible said, "yet will it speak in its season." It'll come to pass.
[Add the lingering of God's promise to Abraham's natural seed to the prophecy Brother Branham applied to the Church in the wilderness 1620 + 400 = 2020. And I believe the Lord will take His children home before then].
Notice, but God is waiting till the iniquity of these modern Amorites is filled. Don't worry; He'll have His Moses ready at that time [(Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:7)]. There'll be an exodus someday to the Promised Land. There'll be a Moses come along who'll call out, restore the faith of the children back to the fathers. It'll come one of these days . . . You say, "Well, look how we're progressing." Sure, the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full. It'll come one of these days, let them destroy themselves.
Civilization, knowledge perverts God's Word to suit their own taste. Every denomination does the same thing. Satan then preaches his own gospel of knowledge in his own church".
The hybrid religion of the great whore and her harlot daughters is the mark of the beast:
In "God of this Evil Age" (p. 29:136-138) Brother Branham said: "There's only two classes of people spoke of in the New Testament: the children of God and the children of the Devil. Did you know that? You want to put a Scripture down for it? I John 3:10, if you want the Scripture. I'm reading it right here, got it wrote out. All right. All right.
In Ephesians 2:2 they are called the children of disobedience, like Eve was, disobedient to God's Word. The children of obedience and disobedience have nothing in common. Then how can the Bride of Christ associate in a denomination when one's disobedient and the other obedient? How can one be the Word and the other one perverted word? How can a prostitute and a clean woman walk together in agreement? They can't do it. They have no fellowship at all. Come out from amongst it. It's of the Devil; it's the mark of the beast, heading right into it now, all denominations; I don't care whose it is. God's taking, not a denomination, a people for His Name. A denomination won't receive these truths, it'll take a individual person that can see God, and look at His Word, and believe it, and belong to no organization, but live for God, not for his organization of intellectual wisdom of some bishop or something has taught them. That's right.
The children of disobedience and the children of obedience has nothing in common. One is of the day of Light, the other one of night and darkness, evil age, this evil age of darkness, nightclubs, dances, yet belong to church. It's okay with their god. They don't have any condemnation about it; nothing bothers them. "Why it don't condemn me to cut my hair," a woman said. "Don't hurt my conscience." She's got no more conscience than a snake's got hips. That's right. Certainly not. She don't know what a conscience is. It's been seared so hard till she don't even know what it is. That's right.
Walking around over the Word of God, saying, "Why that's some old fogy. Don't go up there, it's just a bunch of noise and carry-on anyhow." Know no more about God than a Hottentot would know about an Egyptian knight. That's right. It's true. Having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof; from such turn away; for this is the sort that go from house to house and lead silly women, "Oh, dear, you should do this. Oh, dear, I think your old fogy preacher down there . . . "Oh you'd look cute in a kikini," or ever what you call the thing. "If you'd do all this, that, and the other . . . Why a little cigarette won't hurt nobody. I belong to church, and you know our denomination is looked up to as well as anybody's." Don't you believe that old painted-up liar. She's lying to you. That's right. Yes, sir".
Jacob's dream confirmed God's promise to Abraham and foretold the journey of Abraham's Seed to the consummation
Genesis 28:11-15, 18-22, "After several days' journey Jacob reached a certain place and spent the night there because the sun had set. Placing a stone under his head for a pillow he lay down to sleep and dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth. Its top reached to heaven: and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it [as His Messengers]. And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, "I am the Lord God of Abraham your father, and the God of Isaac: I will give the land whereon you lie [as a fugitive] to you and your descendants; your offspring shall be as the dust of the earth covering the land to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south: and in you and in your Seed [Christ Jesus] shall all the families of the earth be blessed. See now, I am with you and I will watch over you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done that which I have spoken to you . . . Jacob rose early next morning, and taking the stone he had used for his pillow set it up for a memorial pillar; he poured oil upon its top and named the place Bethel [House of God] though previously the name of the town was Luz [almond tree]. And Jacob made this vow, "If God accompanies and watches over me on this journey, giving me bread to eat and clothing to wear so that I return in peace to my father's house, then the Lord shall be my God and this stone which I have erected for a memorial pillar shall become the House of God [Jesus Messiah]: and of all that You give me I will without fail give the tenth to You". (As in Genesis 14:20 we see once again the obligation of the believer to tithe a tenth of his net increase).
The anointed Stone is Christ, the Angel of the Covenant in Whom God descends incarnate as our Kinsman Redeemer (John 1:51). "In your Seed [Jesus Messiah] shall all the families of the earth be blessed. See now, I am with you and I will watch over you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done that of which I have spoken to you . . ." That Stone will never let the promise of verses 13-15 fail: Jesus is the anchor and gate or entrance to heaven upon which God's promise is fixed (John 10:7; 14:6; Revelation 4:1).
I'm anchored in Jesus, the storms of life I'll brave
I'm anchored in Jesus, I fear no wind or wave
I'm anchored in Jesus, for He has power to save
I'm anchored in the Rock of Ages
The Day of the Lord is at hand, and God has made a way of escape
Speaking of the soon-coming dispensation change He said in Joel 2:23-31, "In the time of the latter rain . . . Israel shall know I am in the midst, and that I am the Lord your God, and none else [not a trinity]: My people shall never be ashamed. And . . . I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh . . ." I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood [at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet, and Seventh Vial], before the great and terrible Day of the Lord comes [although they will by practically synonymous]".
And in the New Testament: "When the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars [flying saucers and all manner of mystic signs like four blood moons in the heavens above]; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the [tidal] waves roaring [following the sinking of Los Angeles]; men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: [the 'hot stage' of World War III] for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. Then they will they see the 'parousia' coming of the Son of man [to Israel] in a cloud with power and great glory [Zechariah 14:4; Matthew 24:30; 16:27; 26:64 Mark 13:26]. And when these things begin to come to pass, look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws nigh" (Luke 21:24-28).
Joel 2:32 3:2, "And it shall come to pass, that elect Israelites who call on the Name of the Lord shall be delivered [as were the Christians who paid heed to our Lord's warning (Matthew 24:16) and retired to Pella before the Roman legions invested Jerusalem]: for deliverance shall be confined to Mount Zion and in Jerusalem [Judah] alone, as the Lord has said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call [from Muslim lands]" (Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 13:14; 27:12-13; 49:17; Jeremiah 3:12-18; 16:15; 23:8; 31:8; Ezekiel 37:1-28; 39:27-28; Micah 5:3; 2:12-13; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31, etc).
"For in those days, and in that time, when I call 144,000 elect Israelites from their dispersion, I will also gather all nations, and bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead [judgment against] them there, for My people and for My heritage Israel whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted My land" (Deuteronomy 32:9; Isaiah 66:16; Jeremiah 10:16; Ezekiel 38:22; Zechariah 14:2; Revelation 16:19).
In that day when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of God will raise up a Supernatural standard against it and the anointed Church will rise to power in the manifestation of the Sons of God (Romans 8:19).
Isaiah 61:1-2 is the prophetic answer to Jacob's dream, Jesus declared "The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me; because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to 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 [under the Law of sin and death]; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [or thirtieth Jubilee]".
"The time is fulfilled and the Kingdom of God is at hand [the Jubilee]: repent ye, and believe the Gospel" (Mark 1:15). Note that it was "God" who set the actions in motion—then! He will set them in motion at the second crucifixion of the Son of God with a convulsion of nature unprecedented since man was on earth (Hebrews 6:4-8; Revelation 16:18)].
The world will recognize "who is who" between blood Israelites descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and their impersonators. "Isaiah 27:12 and 13 is where He sounds the [Great] Trumpet and all of the nations will recognize Israel's in her homeland, God with her. Then the Bride will come to be with the Bridegroom, and the Bridegroom with the Bride (and then the great millennium after the whole world is destroyed by atomic power; and there'll be a new heavens and new earth) shall live forever" (William Branham, The Feast of the Trumpets, p. 37:283-284). That single blast will announce Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel; sink Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300-400 mile segment of earth's crust, sending tidal waves around the earth.
This animation shows the tidal wave caused by an undersea earthquake on Boxing Day, 2004 that released energy roughly equivalent to 700 million Hiroshima bombs. One of the most destructive and powerful earthquakes in recorded history, more than a quarter of a million deaths were recorded, local economies destroyed, and entire communities shattered. The radio waves took only two hours to travel from the Andaman Islands to the west coast of India (at a speed of roughly 600 km/hour), five hours to surround the west coast of Australia, and seven hours to reach East Africa.
The earthquake that sinks Los Angeles and Florida will flood Kentucky; islands of Japan and the Pacific will be sunk by "a great earthquake such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city [Jerusalem] was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon [Rome] came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found" (Revelation 16:18-20). The east coast of Australia is about twice the distance from California as our west coast is from the Andamans, but the Los Angeles earthquake will be magnitudes greater.
The cleaving of the Mount of Olives will demolish the Dome of the Rock and ignite the 'hot stage' of the present World War III, bringing Israel utter defeat. The mass exodus of self-styled Khazar Jews will enable genuine Israelites to return from their Islamic host nations to the land of their Covenant without "fear of the Jews" (Jeremiah 30:12; Zechariah 14:2).
Paul declared, "when the fullness of the time was come [that is, the thirtieth jubilee or about 1,471 years from the Exodus, or 1,954 years after Jacob's prophetic dream at Bethel], God sent forth His [own] Son, made of a woman, made to be under submission to the Law like every other Israelite [of His own free will 'to fulfil all righteousness']" (Galatians 4:4; Psalm 102:13; Matthew 3:15). This verse refers not to the time of Christ's birth, but to the jubilee Christ was "sent to proclaim . . . This day, this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing" (Isaiah 61:1-2; Luke 4:16-21; Galatians 4:2). The Law had achieved its educational purpose of deepening the conviction of sin and establishing the inability of all existing systems of worship to reconcile Adam's fallen race with God, and was now superseded (Romans 5:13, 20; Galatians 3:18-25; I Timothy 1:8-10). Adam's KINSMAN Redeemer paid sin's price that we might be re-born of eternal Life, translated from the position of servants to the Law and servitude to sin (Romans 6:16), and recognized as free-born sons in the liberty of Christ (Galatians 4:5-7).
The Great Exodus is at Hand
Paul declared, "God has concluded both the Hebrew and the Gentile dispensations in unbelief, that He might have mercy on all." As Jesus was "sent to proclaim the acceptable [or jubilee] year of the Lord to Israel," the Prophet William Branham was sent in this our day "to proclaim the day of vengeance of our God" and in "the time of Jacob's trouble" the Message of two Israelite prophets "will comfort all that mourn [the atonement on Calvary rejected by their forebears for two thousand years]" (Isaiah 61:2; 57:18; Jeremiah 31:13; Matthew 5:4). nl903.htm
