Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it is encouraging to see your happy face.

Android PhoneThe title of our main article is "And Knoweth it Not" Opens with Isaiah's prophecy of Israel's almost three millennia apostasy, which apostle Paul ties to the apostasy of the Gentile denominations since 1963 foretold by Jesus Christ in Revelation and elsewhere. The denominational Israelites and self-styled Jews are ignorant of their spiritual blindness as the Gentiles in their denominations. Organized religion was never of God. God deals with Israel as a nation, and only in the Land of the Covenant. Any Israelite living outside the Promised Land is without the Covenant.

The Lord deals with Christians as individuals wherever they are. And He deals with Christian Churches as independent entities sovereign under their pastor. We have a small selection of edifying items of current news; please read the Full story, follow the links and check references in our main article.

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.

We are saved by Hope, sharing in the Hope of Israel

"Salvation is of the Lord!" (Jonah 2:9).

    Our election, which is past;
    Our effectual calling and sanctification, which are present; and
    Our glorification, which is future.
God is the author of salvation;
grace is the source from which salvation flows;
Jesus is the Saviour;
faith is the grace that receives salvation;
while separation from the world and dedication to God, prove that we are saved.

Our apostle adds another view, and says, "We are saved by HOPE" (Romans 8:24).

Our Hope is in God, as its highest object and best end.
Our Hope is through Christ, who is the way to the Father, the truth, and the life.
Our Hope is on the ground of the Word, which warrants, excites, and regulates it.
Our Hope is for all that God has promised, whether temporal or spiritual, in this world or the next.
Our Hope should be encouraged, as it brings . . .
    glory to God,
    comfort to our souls,
    credit to our public profession of faith, and
    honour to our Lord Jesus Christ.


Testimonies from those Who were Injured by the Covid Jab

August 2, 2022 — God's prophet warned us this was coming . . . This video shows some of the side effects of the vaccine (sic), please pass this along to as many people as you love to save them from taking this germ warfare on humanity.

"Listen, did you know the Bible predicts that in the last days, that they'll be a germ warfare? That diseases will break out upon the people, and will fall on everyone without the baptism of the Holy Spirit? But with the Angel or who had charge over these plagues was given orders to touch no one on whom the mark was. Why, how much, kind of teachers have we got to be, brethren, to get the church in order to be in that condition? Immune."

"My arms are sore now, from where the doctors has punched needles in, to try to inoculate me from yellow fever and so forth. I told them I didn't need it. But they wouldn't listen to me. But I'll tell you what God's going to do. God's got a serum, and it's called the Holy Ghost. And when that serum goes in, it'll inoculate you. Hallelujah. In the last days . . ." (54-0719A, God's Provided Way of HEALING, par. E-42 – E-44).

"How we thank Thee, that in this great hour, that when all hopes of mortal life has finished . . . Atomic bombs are laying in hangars, hydrogen bombs, sickness and diseases, germ warfare . . . O God, and everything the way it is, knowing that the Bible said that man would actually rot in their flesh . . ." But that Angel was given commission, "Don't you touch any of those! Don't you come near those who has the wine and the oil. Don't touch those who has the Seal of God upon their forehead."

"And we realize that the baptism of the Holy Ghost is the Seal of God. For it is written in Ephesians 4:30, "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God whereby you're sealed until the day of your redemption." Lord God, seal this church tonight. Those who are wanting the Seal of the Holy Spirit, kiss away every fear, Lord, and seal them with Thy Seal of the Spirit in their hearts, that they'll come forth as newborn babes, crying, "Abba, Father." Grant it, Lord. I commit them to Thee in the Name of Jesus, Thy Son" (60-0709, God's Provided Way of Approach to Fellowship, par. E-101 – E-102; Zechariah 14:12; Revelation 9:4).

If you know someone who still does not understand the risks of the COVID jab, I urge you to send them this video . . . Full story: articles.mercola.com   Telegram

Trail of the SerpentProtocol 10, Preparing for Power:

1. To-day I begin with a repetition of what I said before, and I beg you to bear in mind that governments and people are content in the political with outside appearances. And how, indeed, are the GOYIM to perceive the underlying meaning of things when their representatives give the best of their energies to enjoying themselves? For our policy it is of the greatest importance to take cognizance of this detail; it will be of assistance to us when we come to consider the division of authority of property, of the dwelling, of taxation, of the reflex force of the laws. All these questions are such as ought not to be touched upon directly and openly before the people. In cases where it is indispensable to touch upon them they must not be categorically named, it must merely be declared without detailed exposition that the principles of contemporary law are acknowledged by us. The reason of keeping silence in this respect is that by not naming a principle we leave ourselves freedom of action, to drop this or that out of it without attracting notice; if they were all categorically named they would all appear to have been already given . . .

19. But you yourselves perfectly well know that to produce the possibility of the expression of such wishes by all the nations it is indispensable to trouble in all countries the people's relations with their governments so as to utterly exhaust humanity with dissension, hatred, struggle, envy and even by the use of torture, by starvation, by the inoculation of diseases, by want, so that the Goyim see no other issue than to take refuge in our complete sovereignty in money and in all else.

20. But if we give the nations of the world a breathing space the moment we long for is hardly likely ever to arrive. Full story: The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

VACCIDENTS: US Traffic Fatalities skyrocketed across the Board in 2020 and 2021

July 27, 2022 — Coincidentally, as 270 million Americans get their blood infested with billions of sticky spike proteins and heavy metal nanoparticles that cause blood clots, myocarditis and sudden adult death syndrome (SADS), the communists in Washington, D.C. conveniently blame the infrastructure. Safety first! Except that there's nothing "safe" about experimental gene therapy injections that never passed clinical trials or got full approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) . . .
Full story: newstarget.com

Comment: A well-educated nurse Christine writes: Among the vaccines I have known in my life (diphtheria, tetanus, measles, rubella, chickenpox, hepatitis, meningitis and tuberculosis as well as flu and pneumonia vaccines), I have never seen a vaccine that forced me to wear a mask and maintain my social distance, even when fully vaccinated.

    I had never heard of a vaccine that spreads the virus even after vaccination.
    I had never heard of rewards, discounts and incentives to get vaccinated.
    I never saw discrimination for those who didn't accept vaccination; no one would try to make you feel a bad person.
    I have never seen a vaccine used to threaten the relationship between family, colleagues and friends.
    I have never seen a vaccine used to threaten livelihoods, work or school.
    Including all the vaccines listed above, I have never seen a vaccine like this one, which discriminates, divides and judges society. It's a powerful vaccine. It does all these things except IMMUNIZE!
    If, fully vaccinated, we still need a booster dose, still need to get a negative test, still need to wear a mask and still wind up in hospital; it is time for us to admit we've been completely deceived.

News from the US, Canada, Ireland, Cyprus, Sri Lanka and Australia indicates the global toll of "vaccination" is accelerating so dramatically that with so many people "dying suddenly" it will soon be quite impossible to hide from anyone but the clinically insane . . . (thetruthseeker.co.uk).

"Even as corrupt governments worldwide, (and NGO's as iniquitous as the UN, WEF, IMF, WB, WHO, FDA, TGA, CDA, NIH and comparable agencies) do not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient" (Romans 1:28).

It seems the "virus" is the vaccine:
VIRULENT, a. [L. virulentus, from virus, poison, that is, strength, from the same root as vir, vireo. See Venom.] 12375
VIRULENTLY, adv. With malignant activity; with bitter spite or severity. 12375
VIRUS, n. [L. See Virulent.] Foul or contagious matter of an ulcer, pustule, etc.; poison. Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary


Beware of Faux Anti-imperialists

July 31, 2022 — There is no reason to believe monkeypox even exists, or that anybody suffers from it at all. The fairy tales of this disease are not subject to any scientific analysis, and although it is entirely possible that biological weapons were, or will be used. The results blamed on "monkeypox" the World Health Organization's Director General, reporting to the super-rich, is untrustworthy. Nothing he says should be taken seriously. Full story: globalresearch.ca

Comment: WHO confirms that the flawed RT-PCR test was the basis of monkeypox data collection and tabulation (since early May). Both the CDC and the WHO endorsed the controversial the RT-PCR test as a means to identifying virus and "detecting the monkeypox pathogen." A totally absurd initiative . . . (globalresearch.ca).

The US government and CDC colluded with Google, Twitter, Facebook to censor important information about experimental covid vaccines (naturalnews.com).


Top Doc sacked for no Jab (the 'Squeeze')

July 27, 2022 — This was from a discussion group for nurses on Telegram . . . So I went to the Brisbane rally today and I met a Dr. Luke McLindon. He leads the fertility services at the Mater hospital and is the principal investigator for a series of randomised controlled trials. He is also the President of the Australasian Institute for Restorative Reproductive Medicine! He is top Dr. in Australia in this field! And he has been sacked!

He just got sacked on Friday for not getting the jab and for trying to release his data on miscarriages post the jab.

He has until next Friday to get out of his private practice rooms as he is no longer allowed to practice public or private!!

He told me that he has been investigating miscarriages in couples/women post vaccination. He said a normal miscarriage rate is between 5-14%, sometimes up to as high as 16%. But as he has been keeping stats since the introduction of the vaccine, he has found that 74% of women who are vaccinated are now having miscarriages??!

Unbelievable . . . They are trying to hide this data and sacking anyone who speaks out! His career has just gone out the window! He is now spearheading 'Doctors against Mandates' initiative, a collaboration of Doctors who until now have remained publicly silent. Thank God there are still some doctors with morals and values left in the world?? Full story: t.me

Comment: World Economic Forum (WEF), Davos, May 24, 2022: Sir Klaus Schwab (a Rothschild) declares to a room full of political and corporate execs and WEF scholars: "Let's be clear the future is not just happening, the future is built by us, a powerful community here in this room. We have the means to impose the state of the world."

This statement was clearly addressing faithful globalists, while sending a clear warning to non-globalists, no matter the globalist devotion they demonstrated in the past. Some may have "digressed" by ultimately identifying with their national sovereignty, rather than with a global dictatorship. The recent assassination of Shinzo Abe may have been a case in point. See this. And a warning to others: Is Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro in the Globalists' Crosshairs?


Five Months into the Special Military Operation – a Summary

July 23, 2022 — In reality, it is pretty obvious that the most vociferous Russophobes in the West are overwhelmingly Jews, both inside and outside Israel. Usually, the invoked excuse is that there were anti-Jewish pogroms in Russia. Yet, in reality, all those pogroms happened in the Ukraine, and yet it is pretty clear that Zionist and Jewish organizations are overwhelmingly siding with Kiev (in spite of the regime in power being undeniably Nazi), and only very few individuals side with Russia (but they exist and should never be overlooked). As for the Kremlin, it is getting fed up with the Israeli arrogance in Syria (even if Israeli airstrikes are ineffective and make no difference to the reality on the ground) and the Russians are now demanding that Israelis cease their attacks on Syria. The Israelis cannot stop, for internal political and even psychotherapeutic reasons, but one of two things is likely to happen: the Israeli attacks will become even more useless and symbolic, or Russia will shoot down an Israeli aircraft.

But enough about Israel here, this is only a small part of the Anglo-Zionist Empire run by the USA. Now let's turn to the West's actions over the past 5 months.

So what about the US/NATO/EU in all this?

First, I want to make it clear that I strongly believe that the Anglo-Zionist Empire died on January 8th, 2020 when it allowed Iran to bomb CENTCOM bases without even a single bullet being fired back. That day the Empire showed the world that it did not even have what it takes to attack Iran. As for the USA, it died on January 6th, 2021.

However, remember my example above contrasting 5 fingers with a fist? While the Empire as we knew it and the USA as we knew it did die, that does not mean that its composing parts all vanished in thin air. Countries and Empires have momentum, just like the Titanic, when they have been mortally wounded. Simply put the final process of sinking takes time. The Russian Empire died in February of 1917, yet the civil war lasted until 1923 (and I would even argue until WWII) . . .

And yet, the (comparatively small, but more modern) Russian aerospace forces have achieved and maintained air superiority throughout the past 5 months of combat operations. This is an extremely alarming sign for the US and NATO forces. Just imagine what the full might of the Russian armed forces would do to NATO if it was unleashed!

But it gets even worse (for the Empire, that is): there are all the signs and even clear messages that Putin is not "bluffing" at all and that Russia has full escalation dominance over the West. It is now becoming quite evident that the Kremlin will not stop under any circumstances short of a total victory, and if that means nuclear war, so be it. And the Russian people are overwhelmingly supportive of this stance.

Why? Because the Russian people have now FINALLY seen the true face of the West, they now understand that this is nothing else but a continuation of WWII and that the very existence and sovereignty of the Russian people are at stake. Again, Putin said it clearly: "if someone makes a decision to destroy Russia, we have every right to fight back. Yes, it would be a global disaster for humanity and for the world, but being a Russian citizen and head of Russia, I want to ask a question, "What's the point of the world without Russia?" If these were just empty words, like what Biden reads (with difficulty) from his teleprompter, that would be one thing, but these words need to be remembered in the context of the deployment of Avangards, Poseidons, S-500 and all the other weapons and tactics developed by Russia while the Neocons, drunk with arrogance, slept at the wheel.

So no, while Putin rarely makes threats, he never bluffs. Bottom line is this: anybody who sincerely believes that Russia will not wipe out the entire West if she is seriously threatened is terminally delusional, knows nothing about history, and does not understand the Russian mindset. They would do so at their own peril.

If there is one message I want to convey to anybody willing to listen it is this: Putin is not bluffing, the West cannot win, and the only variable here is what price the West is willing to pay for its defeat. By the way, the Chinese are also getting mighty fed up with the crazies in DC, just check out their latest statements. Read the Full story word for Word: thesaker.is

Comment: Four years after Russia's victorious invasion, withdrawal and the introduction Lucifer's world government, the US betrayal prophesied in Revelation 13:11-18 will see NATO's Black Nobility "receive no kingdom, but receive power as kings" and transfer allegiance to Russia, 'nuke' Vatican City State and eliminate North America, thereafter the Lord will deal with Rome in Armageddon and the consummation (Revelation 17:1 – 20:6; 10:7; 21:6-21). Scripturally the United States is finished.


Coming Collapse of the Air Travel Industry?

July 2, 2022 — Food production and the fossil fuel industries are not the only ones on the globalists' chopping block. Last weekend I was invited to a zoom call . . . Three of the participants had deep inside knowledge of the airline industry (one of them a pilot) who said in no uncertain terms that the industry is now being systematically and deliberately demolished. Apparently, the ultimate purpose is to kill airline travel altogether. Indeed, another person on the call, who said she'd read through many of the WEF documents and all of UN's Agenda 2020/30/50/etc. said that this is all actually written down as an explicit objective . . . the ultimate intent is to do away with travelling and to establish a feudal arrangement where people remain fixed in place and all travel is banned . . . While the high priests of Davos may not be able to carry out their plans to completion, they have proven powerful enough to cause a great deal of damage . . . Full story: isystem-tf.com



And Knoweth it Not

Isaiah 29:9-12 prophesied Israel's spiritual blindness of almost three thousand years saying, "Confuse yourselves, and be incredulous; blind yourselves and be blind; be drunk, stagger but not with hard liquor. For the LORD has poured out upon you a spirit of deep sleep, and has closed your eyes—the prophets, and covered the heads of your rulers—the seers. And the vision of all these future events has become to you like the words of a book that is sealed, which men give to one who can read, saying, Read this: and he says, I cannot; for it is sealed: And the book is delivered to one who cannot read, saying, Read this: and he says, I cannot read."

"So the Lord said: because this people draw near with their mouth, and honour Me with their lips, but have removed their heart far from Me, and their reverence for Me consists of tradition learned by rote: therefore, behold, I will again do marvelous things with this people, wonderful and marvelous: and the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the discernment of their prudent men shall be hid."

"Woe to those who try to hide their counsel from the LORD, whose deeds are in the dark, and who say, Who sees us? Who knows us? Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay, that the thing made should say of his maker, He did not make me? Or what is formed say to him that formed it, He has no understanding?


Romans 11:30-32, "As in times past you Gentiles were disobedient to God, yet now have been shown mercy because of Israel's disobedience: even so you Gentiles have now not believed, in order that through the mercy shown to you Israel may also obtain mercy. For God has shut up all in disobedience, that He may have mercy upon all".

God's final act of mercy to us Gentiles sent and vindicated a Prophet to restore our hearts to the apostolic faith, finish the mystery of God, introduce Christ's second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming and bring us to maturity in the unity of the common faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.

Revelation 3:14-19, "To William Branham, the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; these things says Jesus Christ the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the Beginner and the beginning of God creating Himself a part of creation; I know your works, that your loving obedience is neither cold nor hot: I would you were cold or hot. So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue you out of My mouth. Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel you to buy of Me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich; and white raiment, that you may be clothed, and that the shame of your nakedness does not appear; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent".
Body of Christ
Laodicea means "rights of the people"—egalitarianism or communism—a top-down collectivist spirit that oppresses those who are without Christ and know it not. Deluded people oblivious to their condition exemplify the characterless nature Jesus foretold for this our day. Some ministers in the circle of this Message insist that we are living in Laodicea. Outside Christ's Bride the whole world is in the breach between the Church Ages and the Seals indicated on this diagram where the Message of our Brother Braham is calling "Come" by the Holy Spirit to whomsoever will. As a Move of God the Laodicean or Pentecostal Age ended when Christ descended upon Mount Sunset with the Book of Redemption open in His left hand, His right foot placing Judgment upon Rome, the beast from the sea, and His left foot placing judgment on the (once) Protestant US beast from the earth. Religious spirits of the church world have turned people away from the Truth unto fables; consequently they are "ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth . . . and knoweth it not".

Laodicea ended in 1963 when the last saint predestined to the dispensations of PART Word was born-again and Christ's intercession for ignorance of the fullness of the Word was complete (I Corinthians 13:10). Then claiming the Book of Redemption He loosed its six written Seals and descended from heaven "with the shout of Matthew 25:6 and Revelation 18:4 announcing Christ's second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming, with the Voice of the Archangel placing the Message from Genesis to Revelation. With the seventh Trumpet the sleeping Church Age saints will rise first, and after a brief and powerful demonstration of the Spirit we who are alive and remain will manifest that we are the Sons of God and be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord".

Israel is God's servant nation. Christians are the Family of God manifest. His children—brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ—each of us born a second time by the spoken Word for our day and hour.

Ephesians 6:10-12, "Be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armour of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil, for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world and against spiritual wickedness in high places".

We are participants in a contest between God and Satan, the god of this evil age. But the battle is the Lord's; we cannot vie with Satan's physical and intellectual resources but our strength comes from the Lord. Jesus assured us, "If you abide in Me, and My Words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done for you".

This is your 'third pull' and having done all stand firm waiting for the answer to your prayer, don't be impatient or disheartened. You are His elect; Christ the Word is in you wherever you are. Rest assured and busy yourself in your responsibilities as He is waiting upon circumstances, and on you.

King David wrote, "Blessed be the LORD my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle: my loving kindness, and my Fortress; my High Tower, and my Deliverer; my Shield, and He in whom I take refuge; who subdues my peoples under me. LORD, what is man, that You take knowledge of him! Or the son of man, that You take knowledge of him! Man is like a mere breath: his days are like a passing shadow."

"Bow Your heavens, O LORD, come down and touch the mountains that they may smoke. Flash forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out Your arrows, and confuse them. Stretch forth your hand from above; rescue me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of aliens; whose mouth speaks deceit, and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood"
(Psalm 144:1-8).

This represents present-day leaders of men and is horrifying in implication. The fabric of our culture is being unraveled by wicked men we cannot criticize. The Jew's traitor President Woodrow Wilson said, "Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it" (Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom, Doubleday, Page & Co. 1913, pp. 13-14). The implications for trouble, murder, suicides, drugs, corruption and human abuse especially of children are beyond my reality. We must wake up to this WAR, and oppose by any means necessary the people doing this evil . . . IF WE CAN, remembering this is not our world, and we have a near term appointment with Destiny.

Money and power we do not possess; we have God's unchanging Word. Governments are not adhering to national constitutions nor making independent decisions; they are following orders of elite, often faceless men. Politicians are not beholden to voters; voters are beholden to government. The US, Europe and Australia have exported their productive economies to China "for free," planned openly by faithless politicians. We can no longer manufacture essential goods if China ceases to export. The US supply chain is infinitely intertwined with China and the ongoing trade war has already been a major source of inflation. With the flick of a pen, Chinese officials could seriously upset the US economy, exacerbate inflation and send the Democrats packing in this year's midterm elections, which would also dethrone Nancy Pelosi as speaker.

Since the creation of the US Federal Reserve over a century ago, every major financial market collapse has been deliberately triggered for political motives by the central bank. The situation is no different today, as clearly the US Fed is acting with its interest rate weapon to crash what is the greatest speculative financial bubble in human history, a bubble it created. Global crash events always begin on the periphery, as did the 1931 Austrian Creditanstalt or the Lehman Bros. failure in September 2008. Now the June 15 decision by the Fed to impose the largest single rate hike in almost 30 years with financial markets already in a meltdown, guarantees a global depression that will be worse than the Great Depression.

The extent of the "cheap credit" bubble that the Fed, the ECB and Bank of Japan have engineered with the buying up of bonds and maintaining unprecedented near-zero or even negative interest rates for 14 years is beyond imagination. The financial media cover it over daily, reporting nonsense while the world economy is being readied, not for so-called "stagflation" or recession. What is looming now in the coming months is the worst economic depression in history to date. Thank you, globalization and Davos (globalresearch.ca).

Brother Branham said, "When God sends forth a Message and tells the people, and they don't receive it, then He withdraws His servant and sends His plagues: famine, death, spiritually speaking, physically also. You watch for a depression, brother. You think you've seen something; you just wait after awhile. You haven't seen nothing . . ." (61-0319, Jezebel Religion, p. 22:100; Amos 8:11).

Long ago in eternity the Great Creator was alone with His thoughts and He was lonely. In His mind He foresaw an eternal creation in His image—Spirit (Colossians 1:15) and after His likeness—theophany (Genesis 2:9b) manifest in flesh through the spoken Word received by the faith of the virgin Mary. The Great Creator became the last Adam, my Saviour Jesus Christ through His death, burial and resurrection. He will never be lonely again because by the spoken Word He has since begotten "thousand thousands" of eternal Brothers and Sisters.

"God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them" in His great thinking. Now the thoughts of God are eternal and they are real. God is unchangeable in essence and behavior and as He is infinite in His abilities He is also omniscient so He is not now learning, nor is He taking counsel even with Himself, nor at any time adding to His knowledge. He has never had a new thought about anything because all His thoughts He has always had and always will have, and He knows the end from the beginning because He is God.

Way back in eternity before matter was created, the Lord God placed each individual, male and female at liberty to determine their destiny on the basis of free moral agency. To do otherwise would be arbitrary and unjust, yet by foreknowledge He knew the decisions each of us sinners would make. The cloudy skies and storms of life are no signs of God's disapproval. Neither are bright skies and still waters signs of His love and approval. His approval of any of us is only in the Beloved. His love is elective which He had for us before the foundation of the world. Does He love us? How will we know? We shall know because He said so, and manifested that He did love us for He brought us to Himself and gave us of His Spirit, placing us as sons. I shall prove my love to Him by believing what He said, and conducting myself with joy amidst the trials that He in His wisdom allows to come to pass.

Consequently, in agreement with the mind of God we are justified by grace through faith—not simply "forgiven" but just in His sight, as though we never made those mistakes.

The cloudy skies and storms of life are no signs of God's disapproval. Neither are bright skies and still waters signs of His love and approval. His approval of any of us is only in the Beloved. His love is elective which He had for us before the foundation of the world. Does He love us? Ah yes. But how shall we know? We shall know because He SAID SO, and manifested that He did love us for He brought us to Himself and gave us of His Spirit, placing us as sons. And how shall I prove my love to Him? By believing what He said, and by conducting myself with joy amidst the trials that He in His wisdom allows to come to pass.

In John 15:16 Jesus explained, "You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in My Name, He may give to you".

I Peter 1:2, we are "elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied".

Shekinah over Brother BranhamGod finished His thinking before the foundation of the world when He said, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" and expressed the sum of His eternal thoughts in W_O_R_D form as the Logos; the Shekinah appeared to those with the eyes of Melchisedec—an immense globe of amber-coloured Light, for "God is Light, and in Him is no darkness at all." (Image shows the Shekinah over Brother Branham).

The material world began to unfold a huge flaming Sun containing the sum total of physical matter of the universe, initially perhaps in gaseous form. It whirled in random for billions, even trillions of years ejecting other suns, planets and stars that over time established predetermined permanent orbits in the cosmos (Genesis 1:1-8). God was writing His first Bible, the Witness of the Stars. Psalm 119:89, 160 "Forever, O LORD, Your Word is settled in heaven . . . The sum of Your Word is Truth from the beginning: and every one of Your righteous judgments is everlasting".

This marvelous beginning is long past and the pristine beauty of the heavens and the earth has been spoiled in the battle between Christ and Antichrist. The Old Testament saints have been gathered Home, and after six thousand years the number of New Testament saints lacks little more than 144,000 elect Israelites. The Devil and his minions rule treacherously in all nations, their loyalty pledged to the hidden hand and international collectives controlled by the "usual suspect" building Satan's Eden.

"He who testifies to these things says, surely I am coming quickly." Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

We live at the end of the Gentile dispensation which in my understanding will terminate in less than one year. Let's turn to Brother Branham as he rehearses the antitypes of Old Testament types cited by Jesus Christ for this our day.

1. "God, how did He make the world? Do you believe the world was in God's thoughts? Sure, it was, had to be. How did He make it? He just spoke.

"Where is He going to get the things?" How could you ever reason with God, say, "God, where'd You get the material, to make the rocks out of? Where did You?" They come from gases. "Where'd You get the gas, Lord?" See? "How'd You ever make water? What is the formula? H²O. Where'd you get the hydrogen, oxygen at?" See? That's it. See? It just doesn't make sense.

What did God say? It was in His thoughts. And His thoughts is His Word, before it's expressed. Then when His thoughts said, "Let there be," there was. That's it. There is where faith lays.

Hebrews 11 said, "By faith the world was created." The world was made by faith. "God made the world out of things that does not appear." By faith God spoke the world into existence, because it was a premeditated Word. But as soon as He said it, it become life.

Now you can say, "I believe that, Brother Branham." In your heart you can believe it. Then express it, "I believe it." Don't never change it, at all. Stay right with it. Watch what will grow out of it. It'll produce the Word, 'cause it's faith. See? Wisdom takes you away. Faith brings you to it. See that? (62-0401, Wisdom Versus Faith, par. 294-298).

2. Now, watch what sign was done. Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Sodom" [Luke 17:28-30]. Now, there was three messengers come down for the three different classes of people. Two of them went down and preached the Gospel in Sodom, [a type of Billly Graham and Oral Roberts], and brought out that little [non-elect] group that would come out.

But watch the messenger that stayed with the church spiritual, Abraham and his group. Now, listen closely, don't forget it in the oncoming meeting. Now, what taken place? This Man that was setting there talking to Abraham, a Man was setting there eating the flesh of a calf, drinking the milk from a cow, and eating bread, that Sarah had baked on the hearth. He said to Abraham; He said, "Abraham, where is your wife, Sarah?" If He was a stranger, how did He know he had a wife, and how did He know her name was Sarah? Now, watch what the Scripture says.

Abraham said, "She's in the tent behind You."

Sarah, back behind the little tents, in the big tent, the flap closed down, no doubt. He said, "Abraham, I'm going to visit you according to the time of life," and what He was going to do. And Sarah, inside the tent, behind the Angel, laughed within herself. How many knows that's the Scripture?

And what did this Angel say? "Why did Sarah laugh? Why did she laugh?" Now Jesus said that same thing would take place just at the closing of the Gentiles, for He did it, Himself, when He was here. It was did in the days of Sodom (Luke 17:28-30; Hebrew 4:12; 13:8). Now watch, He never mentioned about the flood time, 'cause it isn't going to be a flood, it's going to be fire this time. This world will be blowed to pieces after while. May before morning, may before the year's out, hydrogen powers will blow this thing to bits. It'll turn back to volcanic ashes again. That's true. That's exactly what the Scripture says. Won't come like that, them realms of gases up there, 'cause it'll fall from above. Man destroys himself.

But the last message of the Angel to the church is here, and it's so simple; it's gone plumb over the head of the church, and they've failed to see it. That's exactly (60-0302, From that Time, par. E-52-53; Revelation 3:15-20).

3. "Now let us turn in the Scriptures now for just a little Scripture reading. Where, if my words fail, this won't. And then God will bless you for staying, just on account of listening to His Word. "Faith cometh by hearing, hearing the Word of God." Is that right? Now as I was thinking . . . While, you're turning to Saint John 6:60-71, inclusive.

Now I was thinking, as I was looking out the window a little while ago, and looking at the setting of the sun and seeing how all nature has a law. And when the wintertime comes, the law of nature automatically runs the sap down into the tree roots. It buries.

As Job 14:13 said, "Oh, that Thou would hide me in the grave, that Thou would keep me in the secret place until Thy wrath be passed." And now, that's it, "If Thou would hide me!" See, he saw the nature, the tree, the life go down into the roots; Brother Way. "And there stay until the wrath be passed, and then call me and set me a time." See?

Nature has a law. There is a law of nature; there is no way at all to get around it. It's a law of nature. And then there is a law of the Spirit; there is, also, no way of getting around that.

I was speaking to a couple this afternoon, about, you cannot totally annihilate anything. Human beings can't annihilate. They can tear down, but not annihilate. And someone said, "Well, what about taking and burning a piece of paper, does that annihilate it?" No, sir. It only breaks the chemicals apart, the heat of the fire. It goes right back to the gases, what it was in the beginning. You cannot annihilate. And if the world stood long enough, that same gases, that and chemicals was in that paper, could come right back and be a piece of paper again. That's exact. You cannot annihilate.

God, then. If there is a resurrection to everything, back again, and no annihilation, there is a resurrection of the just, yeah, and we have got to come back. That's all there is to it. There is no way at all of doing. No matter if you're burnt up, if you're drowned, wherever takes place, they cannot annihilate.

Just remember that every part of you was here, when God spoke the world into existence. He put your body here right then. And there is nothing can take it away except God. It's all back into His hands again. See? And He is the One, the Creator, was the One Who made the promise, so we're sure that there is Life Eternal. And we have the assurance in our heart now, that now we have Everlasting Life, Eternal Life that cannot die, in us now. All right" (63-1124E, Three Kinds of Believers, par. 34-40).

Brother Branham has given us the revelation; here is the science that confirms the Word.

French chemist Antoine Lavoisier laid the foundation to the scientific investigation of matter by describing how substances react by following the laws of chemical combination. According to the Law of Conservation of Mass, during any physical or chemical change, the total mass of the products remains equal to the total mass of the reactants.

100g Mercuric Oxide = 92.6g Mercury + 7.4g Oxygen The Law of Conservation of Mass is also known as the "Law of Indestructibility of Matter."

Heating 10 g. CaCO3 = 4.4 g. CO² + 5.6 g. CaO confirm that these observations are in agreement with the Law of Conservation of Mass because the mass of the reactants is equal to the mass of the products. Matter is indestructible.

Gay Lussac's Law of Gaseous Volumes states, "the ratio between the volumes of gaseous reactants and products can be expressed in simple whole numbers."

For example, in the following reaction, the ratio of volumes of hydrogen, chlorine, and hydrogen chloride is 1:1:2 (a simple ratio):

H²O 1vol. + Cl² 1vol. = 2HCl 2vol.

The Law of Reciprocal Proportions proposed by Jeremias Ritcher in 1792 states that, "If two different elements combine separately with the same weight of a third element, the ratio of the masses in which they do so are either the same or a simple multiple of the mass ratio in which they combine."

I expect many will recall our teaching on E = mc²

But what did He say in His Word? "I'll raise it up again at the last days." Amen! "I'll raise it up." He promised it; after the body has perished, after even the dust is broke out, and it goes back to the gases of the earth. Yet, as I said the other night, "You can't annihilate nothing, man can't." There is no annihilation. Man can't annihilate anything. It's only God can do that. And remember, He will, though it be a spoonful of ashes, He said, "I'll raise it up again at the last day." That dirt will have to obey His commandment, because He created it. If the wind and the wave obey Him, so does the dirt obey Him. Amen.

Wake up! He is with us. All obeys Him.

After the disciples found themselves at the end of the road, it must have dawned on some of them that the Creator was with them. Might have done, so we find out that they went and woke Him up, for He was with them all the time.

And they seen His Scriptural Word being vindicated. So have we. When we call Jesus, it wasn't hard. Didn't have to go say, "Oh, Master, wake up, wake up! Wake up! Oh, Master, wake up, wake up!" No, no.

They just, "Master!"

Said, "Here am I."

"Carest Thou not that we perish?"

He said, "Oh, where is your faith, you of little faith?"

That's it, forgetting He is with us; calling Jesus on the scene, to act. People today said, "If I could know for sure that that was Him, if I could just be sure!" (63-1130E, Go awake Jesus, par. 146-150).

4. "We see the world, geographically. We see the signs; earthquakes in divers places, nations against nations. We see all the things that's predicted. We see fearful sights in the skies, man's heart failing; flying saucers, and so forth, that they can't explain, investigating judgments coming to the earth. We see the atomic bombs hanging out yonder, everywhere, and the great missiles can carry total destruction in an hour. We see the gases hanging above us there, that would rain the fires down, out of the heaven, and destroy the earth.

Jesus ChristexplodeBut we see Jesus, also, Who made the promise! And as was said, "This same Jesus that was taken up from you, will come again in like manner as you've seen Him go into Heaven." We are watching for that glad Day to come (64-0206B, Paradox, par. 270-271).

"Notice here, some of you Bible students, and especially Doctor Dale looking at me. Notice in II Pete 3:6, he uses the word "world," as a Greek word 'kosmos,' which means, "the world order." "The earth shall pass away; melt the elements with fervent heat." See? Doesn't mean that the earth, the planet, is going to pass away. But the world, kosmos, the politics, the sinners, the systems, sin, disease, germs, everything that's wrong, will pass away . . .

God once shook "He shook the earth," (Hebrews 12:26) and then this time "He'll shake the heavens." See? "For we receive a Kingdom that cannot be moved." It's a Eternal Kingdom. Watch how he goes to it.

Notice here, Peter said, "And will melt with fervent heat, and the works therein burnt up," not the planet. "The works therein," the works of man, all their politicians and their schemes, and all their denominations and man-made schemes, will all go with it when it burns.

"And heavens will pass away with a great noise." Did you notice here? "Heavens will pass away with a great noise." Listen! The whole earth will be on fire, and will ignite the gases that's in the earth and explode it. That's exactly. The Bible said here, Peter said, "And the heavens will pass away, and earth, with a great noise." Such an explosion will rock it, oh, my, 'cause it's got to kill every disease, every thistle, every thorn. Everything there is to be done, the Fire will burn it up. And, remember, it's not altogether just a literal fire; it's also a holy Fire, see, that will take away Satan and all of his, all the devils. "Both heaven and earth," amen, "will pass away," killing all the germs, all insects, all natural life on it and around it, even the H²O (the water) will explode. Think of it. Talk about a noise!

You think that little noise out here in Tucson was something, when He opened the six Seals that shook the country around about, and caused the talk. Wait till this earth receives her baptism!

You know, when a man receives the baptism of Fire, there's a lot of noise around there. They think that's a shame, to hear people scream and shout like that. Just wait till this earth gets her baptism!

globeYeah, it'll explode it, the H²O, the water, for the Bible said here in Revelation 21, "and there was no more sea," explode it. This will change the whole surface of the entire earth. She'll burst and blow to pieces. All the outside, the crust, and for hundreds of feet below it, will just simply be completely demolished. The atmospheres, the gases that's in the earth now, where they're finding these missiles that can't get through it, a great sphere up in there, way up in some kind of a sphere that there's all kinds of gases, they say; and that'll burst. The holy wrath of God will come upon it, see, and will cleanse it, will change the entire surface.

Now, many of you that want to put down this word, the Greek word, "pass away." . . . I had to find it. I thought, "How is this world going to pass away, and yet we're going to live on it?" But if you'll notice, some of you people that wants to put it down, I'll spell it for you. I couldn't pronounce it, p-a-r-e-r-e-c-h-o-m-i-a. I don't know how to pronounce it . . . The inspiration strikes me for something, then I go back to find out the word. Now, here, I can't pronounce it. But, in that, the Lord has still give me a way. I go and find out what that word means, then I got it. See? Then I got it, again. See?

Heavens and earth will pass away, now this word means "passing from one form to another." It does not mean "annihilation," as the English word would mean, pass away, it's annihilated. But the Hebrew word, or the Greek here, does not mean pass away; it means "passing from one thing to another." Look, but, "to pass from one condition," it says, "to another."

Now notice, Paul used it, if you want to read it now. Put it down, you can read it later. In Titus 3:5, Paul is using this same word, means regeneration of man, that man has passed from a sinner to a saint, not completely annihilated. When a man is changed, he isn't annihilated, but he's a changed person. He has been changed from what he was to what he is, not annihilated (64-0802 The Future Home of the Heavenly Bridegroom and the Earthly Bride, par. 169-176).

5. "Now it's the same thing today. We're at the end time. Now, those people ought to have known, see. Now, you noticed, Noah was a type of the Jews that'll be carried over through the Tribulation. Enoch was a type of the real Message, of translation of the Church, for Enoch was taken up and then the flood came. And both of them . . . The first prophet, Enoch, was taken out of the way so . . . God could go on with Noah. And now the Church will be taken away so that God can deal again with the Jews, the remnant of the Jews, the hundred and forty-four thousand Israelites, as we've been through it in the Scriptures here.

But in the face of all the scientific, unbelieving age, God proved His Word of promise true, by sending them the flood. Now, remember, in the days of Noah, it had never rained upon the earth. God had a mist to come up out of the earth and to irrigate, but it never rained. But Noah said, "It's going to rain." . . .

They could take an instrument and shoot up into the skies, and say, "There is no moisture up there. There's no rain there. We can prove there's no rain there."

Regardless of what science said, God said, "It was going to rain," so that does it. Now, what did God do? To my opinion, when some of them shook the world a little and throwed it out of its cater, then it threw the back this a way, the heat of the earth into the cold, only brought the moisture. And the world was covered over, first, and the atmospheres up there, the humidity in the air, just come together in a form of cloud and let it down, that was all.

Now we know today, that there's fire up there, 'cause the gases are in the earth. And the Bible said, "The heavens and earth will pass away with a great noise, and the earth shall melt with fervent heat." So we know that it's up there, so just the same as it was in the days of Noah.

And now remember, the Message of Noah's time was only by faith, and not scientific proven. But, today, the Message is according to the Word of God, and scientifically proven. Elijah come first, doing miracles, not doing any preaching; just going from place to place, doing miracles. The next time, he come in the form of John the Baptist, he come doing no miracles, just preaching. And the third time he comes, there's both miracles and preaching. See? See how it is? Watch how in continuity the Scriptures run. We could just spend plenty of time on that, but we won't, we'll omit it, because I believe you get the idea (64-0816, Proving His Word, par. 88-93).

6. "Now, the Bride doesn't have to be in any certain place. Many of them will be in the dust of the earth. They'd be around the earth; they'd be frozen in the snow in the north, and dust of the tropical jungles, and all around the world. But when the Trumpet of God shall sound, the dead in Christ shall arise, waken, and come out of the dust of the earth, no matter where they are. And now, in this, the resurrection will be universal. See? Everywhere every creature on the ball of the earth that's in Christ will come forth with Him when He comes no matter where you are.

Just think of the arena in the days of the early martyrs, that when those Christians were throwed into lions' den and those lions killed the Christians and eat up their bodies. See? Yet they were scattered, their bodies was in the wastage of the lion across the face of the earth. No matter where it is, you can't . . . See, you're made up of a substance that's unseen made material, and God will give that substance back. See?

Now, like you take a cell. You break it down from a cell, and it comes in then to a cell in a cell, and into a atom, and a molecule, and on down like that; and finally it ends up into the unseen. It goes from a natural, something you put your hands on, to gases; from gases into acids into gases, and gases, on back like that, till it finally all winds up to one little thing, and that is spirit. And this spirit who has occupied these gases . . . It might not be the same gases, but the features of what you are will be exactly what they are again. See? The Spirit has controlled that.

And now, in other words, when you become a young man or a young woman, and like, God takes a picture of you . . . Now, no matter how old and wrinkled, how disfigured, whatever it will be, that will wind right on down through. And that body may be destroyed, disfigured, burnt, eat up by lions, whatever it is, but it was made up of gases, sixteen elements of the earth. That was calcium, and potash, and petroleum, and cosmic light, and so forth, all goes together to make up the body. Now, no matter, the whole earth is filled with that.

But now, this picture is the main thing. Then in the resurrection, those gases, and acids, and things comes right back into the place and develops this picture again. Now, this picture was not taken when you was sixteen, or eighteen, or twenty years old at your best. When was it taken? Before there was a foundation of the world it was put in God's great file (Genesis 1:27). And then, only thing it did was featured itself here for you to make your choice. See? Then you become a servant of God. Him foreknowing it makes Him a Redeemer, as we've been through it.

Then that picture is the negative. The negative part of life is where you're living now. And anything, if there is a negative, there's got to be a positive before there can be a negative. Therefore, if this is a negative, there's got to be a positive somewhere. And this ain't the real thing; this is only a foreshadow of the real thing that is to come. Now you got it?

So, I don't care what they would do with you; they cannot destroy that profile, that picture in God's great gallery up there. It cannot destroy it; it's in heaven. You could burn it up, feed it to the lions, do it anyway you want to; it'll come forth again just as sure as the two twos is four. Just as sure as God spoke it, it'll come forth. So no matter where you are . . ." (64-0830M, Questions and Answers 3, par. 17-23). nl1216.htm
