* The End of the World in 1977??? *
??????????????????????? 1977 1977 1977 1977 1977 ?????????????????????
"Faith" is a clear understanding of the revealed Word of God - what it MEANS, not what it SAYS. Faith is the mind of Jesus Christ in us. It's the perfect interpretation of God's Word. That's what we must apprehend: agreement with the Bible. Any true revelation of God's Word or true ministry will be according to the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
Any word is a thought expressed. God's Word is His thoughts, and He expresses them first-hand to a prophet. We all hear It second-hand as it were. But our understanding or faith comes to us personally from God, first-hand.
Very few people have faith because they're content with a second-hand religion. They're religious, but not interested in a personal relationship with God, and grateful for some priest or minister to "do their religion" for them, and after an hour-or-so in church, meet their friends to discuss the world. Ministers and priests are just as guilty. Instead of studying to meet God in His Word, they regurgitate the educated guesses of educated men long dead, by reciting their commentaries.
God sent us a prophet in these last days. He was William Branham. His ministry RESTORED the apostolic faith, FINISHED the mystery of God, and is calling the wise and foolish virgin OUT from all man-made religions.
But because so many ministers and church members are too lazy to search the Scripture for themselves, as Jesus admonished, they end up following man-made traditions, and when God reveals more Light on His Word, they reject or find fault with It. God then removes their names from the Book of Life, and they become reprobates, justifying their own sin by persuading others from the truth.
I had an e-mail recently from a young brother in Arizona who met a missionary who spoke about William Branham being a prophet of God, and how his prophecies always came to pass.
He 'phoned a radio presenter for a second opinion, and he told him that William Branham was not a prophet of God. One of the reasons he claimed was that some of his major prophecies did not come to pass, like the end of the world in the 70's. What nonsense!
Here's a classic example of a man handling the Word of God without it being God's will. This presenter is clearly not in the faith. He shouldn't be presenting a Gospel radio broadcast and isn't even a Christian.
The radio presenter no doubt means well, but has no idea what he's talking about and he's relying on what he's heard second-hand. His objection is based on the false assumption that Brother Branham foretold the return of the glorified Jesus and the commencement of the Millennium in 1977. He said no such thing.
Let's talk about what Brother Branham said: "The Laodicean Age began around the turn of the Twentieth Century, perhaps 1906. How long will it last? As a servant of God, who's had multitudes of visions, of which NONE has ever failed, let me predict, (I did not say prophesy, but predict) that this age will end around 1977.
If you'll pardon a personal note here, I base this prediction on seven major continuous visions that came to me one Sunday morning in June, 1933. The Lord Jesus spoke to me and said that the coming of the Lord was drawing nigh, but that before He came, seven major events would transpire. I wrote them all down, and that morning I gave forth the revelation of the Lord.
The first vision was that Mussolini would invade Ethiopia and that nation would "fall at his steps". That vision surely did cause some repercussions, and some were very angry when I said it, and would not believe it. But it happened that way. He just walked in there with his modern arms and took over. The natives didn't have a chance. But the vision also said that Mussolini would come to a horrible end with his own people turning on him. I saw he and his mistress hanged upside-down, with their underclothes showing. That came to pass just exactly as it was said.
The next vision foretold that an Austrian by the name of Adolph Hitler would rise up as dictator over Germany, and that he'd draw the world into war. It showed the Siegfried line, and how our troops would have a terrible time to overcome it. Then it showed that Hitler would come to a mysterious end.
The third vision was in the realm of world politics, for it showed me that there'd be three great ISMS: Facism, Nazism and Communism, but that the first two would be swallowed up into the third. The voice admonished, "WATCH RUSSIA, WATCH RUSSIA. Keep your eye on the King of the North."
The fourth vision showed the great advances in science that would come after the second world war. It was headed up in the vision of a plastic bubble-topped car that was running down beautiful highways under remote control, so that people appeared seated in this car without a steering wheel, and they were playing some sort of a game to amuse themselves.
The fifth vision had to do with the moral problem of our age, centering mostly around women. God showed me that women began to be out of their place with the granting of the vote. Then they cut off their hair, which signified that they were no longer under the authority of a man but insisted on either equal rights, or in most cases, more than equal rights. She adopted men's clothing and went into a state of undress, until the last picture I saw was a woman naked, except for a little fig leaf type apron. With this vision I saw the terrible perversion and moral plight of the whole world.
Then in the sixth vision there arose up in America a most beautiful, but cruel woman. She held the people in her complete power. I believed that this was the rise of the Roman Church.
The last and seventh vision was wherein I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America.
Based on these seven visions, along with the rapid changes which have swept the world in the last fifty years, I PREDICT, (I do not prophesy), that these visions will have all come to pass by 1977. And though many may feel that this is an irresponsible statement in view of the fact that Jesus said that "no man knoweth the day nor the hour." I still maintain this prediction after thirty years because, Jesus did NOT say no man could know the year, month or week in which His coming was to be completed.
So I repeat, I sincerely believe and maintain as a private student of the Word, along with Divine inspiration, that 1977 ought to terminate the world systems and usher in the millennium.
What's left? Nothing except Hebrews 12:26, "Whose voice then shook the earth: but now He's promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven." Once more God will shake the earth and with it shake everything loose that can be shaken. Then He will renovate it".
When Brother Branham revealed a series of seven consecutive visions God showed Him in 1933, he said, "The Laodicean Age began around the turn of the Twentieth Century, perhaps 1906. How long will it last? As a servant of God who's had multitudes of visions, of which NONE has ever failed, let me predict, (I did not say prophesy, but predict), that this age will end around 1977..."
"...Based on these seven visions, along with the rapid changes which have swept the world in the last fifty years, I PREDICT, (I do not prophesy), that these visions will have all come to pass by 1977.

The radio presenter read the date 1977 but he had NO idea what the prophet meant. And NOT the faintest idea what he should be looking for in the Scripture. The simple truth is beyond the comprehension of the presenter, as he's looking for the WRONG Coming of Christ.
He doesn't know that Christ comes three times. At His first Coming He was born of a virgin to redeem His Bride on Calvary. His second Coming was in 1963. Christ is here NOW. Not the glorified Jesus of Nazareth, but the fullness of the anointed Word. The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in WORD Form. He came through the mouth of the prophet, William Branham. Christians are NOT looking for Jesus to come, His precious feet don't touch this earth until after all life on earth is destroyed in Armageddon. We are waiting for our going. When the glorified Jesus returns, we'll come back with Him (Malachi 4:1-3).
Israel was expecting the first Coming according to the prophecies of His third Coming. And the denominational church world today is looking for the second Coming according to the prophecies of the third. When the glorified Jesus returns to earth, the glorified saints of all Ages come back WITH him, and step out upon the ashes of the wicked for the Millennium (Malachi 4:1-3). So our friend is looking for the WRONG thing, and rejecting the RIGHT thing.
Brother Branham said, "...Jesus did NOT say, no man could know the year, month or week in which His coming was to be COMPLETED." Hold that word, "completed".
According to I Thessalonians 4:16, Christ's Coming is in three stages. First, the "Shout" of Brother Branham's Message calls the wise and foolish virgin OUT from all denominations, baptizing them into Christ which is the new birth (Matthew 25:6; II Thessalonians 2:1; Revelation 18:4). Second, the "Voice of the Archangel" which is Christ IN the heart of the Bride, confirms the Message from Genesis to Revelation. This brings the wise into maturity in the unity of the faith, for the manifestation of the Sons of God, and the translation. Third, the "Trump", marks the end of the Gentile dispensation. The sleeping saints resurrect, and the living saints change in the atoms. We unite with them to "meet Jesus in the Air", and this is when His coming is COMPLETED
Now we DO know the month and the week in which He'll meet His Bride in the Air. The Bible tells us this. It will be, "when the day of Pentecost is fully come" . . . again. I have my own thoughts as to the year. But there's no need to guess. Very soon we'll know for SURE. Brother Branham didn't say His Coming would be in 1977. He came in 1963 and He is here NOW, in Word Form. His Coming will be COMPLETED when the day of Pentecost is fully come. That's when we "meet Him in the Air". You can find out the day and week from the calander. It will be the 50th day after Nisan 16, around May or June - wherever that is located on the correct calendar.
Brother Branham said, "... I predict ... this age will end around 1977 . . ."
Brother Branham was the angel to the Laodicean, or Seventh Church Age which ended in March, 1963. That's when Christ's mediation was complete, Revelation 4, 5 and 10:1-7 were fulfilled, and the Seven Seals revealed. The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in WORD Form.
The Man Jesus didn't return. The anointed WORD came back through the mouth of God's prophet. Did you hear that? Paul said, "When that which is perfect is come, that which was in part will be done away." Now that we have the fullness of the Word, Christ is no longer mediating for part-Word.
Brother Branham said, "..1977 ought to terminate the world systems and usher in the millennium."
The "world systems" were terminated and the Millennium began to be ushered in, when the saints caught the REVELATION of the Prophet's Message. Now the revelation or faith or understanding began to be realized imperfectly by a tiny minority around about 1972. And by about 1975 those born-again after the opening and preaching of the Seven Seals, who are making-up the end-time Bride who will not see death, began separating from the denominational part of the Body.
The realization that we are NOT denominationals, terminated the world systems and is ushering-in the Millennium. The Millennium is a restoration back to Eden for the Honeymoon of the Bride and Groom. If you read Acts 3:21 you'll see that before the PHYSICAL conditions of the Millennium can be restored or ushered-in, the Word "spoken by the mouth of all God's holy prophets since the world began", the fullness of the Word, which is Christ, had to be restored FIRST. Then RECEIVED by faith, before it could manifest in the physical world.
It was RESTORED by the ministry of Brother Branham (Malachi 4:5-6; Acts 3:19-23; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7). And it was RECOGNIZED by the Bride and thus began to take effect, terminating the world systems, and ushering-in the Millennium - by 1977 - as Brother Branham predicted.
Everything Brother Branham said in the Name of the Lord either has come to pass or is now coming to fulfillment. The radio presenter needs a little less zeal and a little more faith. Only then can he become a Christian or born-again.
I hope these words illustrate the importance of understanding or faith. God's prophets do not make mistakes when speaking in the Name of the Lord. Please take what I've said and PROVE it in God's Word, the Bible. Don't go to some man, minister or priest, for his opinion, go to God's Word. I say this because I'm trying to direct you to God's Word, so you will understand what It says.
For a change of pace, I'm going to read from an online newsletter, "Spirit of Health", which brings articles that are always beyond the mainstream medical school of thought, and may be new to the alternative minded, as well.
People with a weak immune system can die quickly. If you don't believe it, just read these headlines...
"Flesh-eating bacteria eats man alive; Legionnaires Disease kills everyone in hotel room; Woman with tuberculosis infects other passengers on aeroplane; Cholera found in the US water for the first time. Cancer rates skyrocket. No Stopping AIDS; Herpes infections on the rise; Measles returns," and so-on.
The other bad news is, antibiotics and other drugs are useless, and won't save you anymore because these new "bugs" eat penicillin and anti-viral drugs like candy.
As far as I see you only have 2 choices, either staplegun 20mm plastic over your entire house, and don't come out for the next 5 years, or ... supercharge your immune system.
Dr. Richard Schulze, is the medical herbalist who has cured the incurables. His formulas and methods were developed at his clinic for the terminally-ill. What Dr. Schulze teaches is unapproved and unaccepted by the armchair herbalists who write the popular books.
These people ridicule Dr. Schulze and call him "an herbal caveman, out of touch with modern methods." They label his cures as "para-herbalism." The problem with these herbal professors is that they spend their time in the library and have never seen a patient - ever.
What Dr. Schulze teaches was learned on real people with real diseases that were killing them. His goal is to teach you what you need to cure yourself at home. Healing knowledge is power - power to live!
"Echinacea cures the incurables, but not the way people are using it."
Most people believe that herbs are mild and quite ineffective, as compared to drugs. But in most cases, herbs are more powerful than drugs - when used with complete, fullspectrum programs, as I do in my clinic
Now, you realize I am not talking about the garbage sold at health food stores. I'm talking about the stuff people can make at home.
I had sixteen people with AIDS, some of them terminal, and they were cured with natural healing. Herbs.
Because of the geographic area my practice was in, I saw many AIDS patients. These people usually had low T-Lymphocyte blood counts. Many under 200, some in the double digits; I even had a few with 1 or 2 T-cells only.
It doesn't get worse. And some of these people had Karposi's Sarcoma Cancer, and Pneumocystic lung fibrosis. I had some real sick patients. Some had less than two weeks to live.
Almost across the board, I saw everyone's T-cell count double in a matter of days, as long as they followed the full incurables program, stopped their immune-destroying chemotherapy with AZT, and took the herb echinacea at the rate of 360 drops (12 dropperfuls) a day of tincture. I also had to work on their attitude, but we'll get into that some other time. Many of these dying people had a complete return to health.
"Homemade echinacea jumps the T-cell count better than any drug the doctors have."
The American Indians used echinacea extensively for hundreds of years. They used it for all types of disorders but especially for wounds and rattlesnake bites. They knew that it increased the body's ability to recover from illness and injury, but also protected the body from poisons and toxins.
Dr. King was a famous doctor at the turn of the century whose wife was cured of cancer by taking echinacea tincture. The doctor's regular herbal medications did not help her.
You may well ask, "But why didn't the doctors use it?" They did. It's a very interesting story. In the late 1800's, there was a man named Joseph Meyer from Pawnee City, Nebraska.
He was a peddler of various goods by wagon and he learned the virtue of a Kansas root from his Plains Indian friends. He made and bottled a tonic of alcohol from this root and sold it as a cure for everything that seemed to be.
He traveled the west in his wagon selling this tonic and became quite famous both as a healer and showman. As the story goes, he'd let live rattlesnakes bite him on stage to prove the effectiveness of his tonic and it seemed he never got ill.
This is where the name "snake oil peddler" originated. He also claimed his tonic would cure cancer. It seemed to, and he claimed it was good for everything from mad dog bites to the plague.
At the end of the 19th century, he decided he'd like to know what this root actually was, so he shipped off a case of his tonic to Professor King, one of this nation's leading doctors, and author of the famous King's American Dispensatory.
Professor King laughed at this request, stuck the bottles of snake oil tonic under a bench at home, and wrote Joseph Meyer telling him what an idiot he was to think that an herb could be identified from a bottle of tonic, and to send the whole plant to his laboratory if he wanted it identified. In the meantime, Professor King's wife was dying of cancer and wasn't getting better despite all he was doing trying to save her.
He had the best medicines of the day. But nothing helped Professor King's wife, and she was slipping away.
Joseph Meyer sent off the plant, and Professor King shelved it. A few months later, the professor's wife had a full recovery from cancer. He was overjoyed, of course, and questioned his wife. He told her that he was glad his medical advice and prescriptions finally worked. He was shocked to hear that she'd given up on his medical advice months ago, stopped using his prescriptions, and started using snake oil.
At that time, no echinacea preparation was sold or ever heard of in medicine. In 2 years, it became one of the most widely-used tonics by doctors in America. It was only abandoned when the AMA destroyed herbal medicine in this country and drove the 20,000+ practicing herbal doctors out of business. That was Rockefeller skulduggery. But that's another story (http://www.healthfree.com). radio112.htm
