Bible Believers' Newsletter 1236
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ Who came to die for those God ordained to Eternal Life, and all God has ordained will come to Him, the others will not come. So when the last rainbow trout is caught, the seining will be over. We are pleased to have you join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
To lift your spirits we present "The Twelve Doses of Christmas" by the snowbound Angry Albertan Choristers! The subject of today's discussion is "The Beginnings of a New Covenant" developing Old Testament shadows and types to the substance of things that are to be by "the present Truth" of the New Covenant. With the certainty God can never change His mind on His Word we are progressing to an enduring destiny. And although "we are now the sons of God, it does not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that when He manifests our 'third pull,' we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him cleanses the sanctuary of his temple, even as He is sanctified" (I John 3:2-3).
Brethren, the world is falling apart under satanic oppression as His demonic forerunners execute dominion in high office above civil and corporate authorities and institutions preparatory to his being acclaimed "lord of the kingdoms of the world, and their glory." This will be apparent in our news articles. The world has gone insane, yet these are "the good times," our natural human rights and dignities have already been legislated into oblivion as will soon be apparent to all when grace ends and Lucifer descends.
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.
Again, Fear on the Run, 'Catastrophic Contagion'
December 16, 2022 — Remember Event 201 of 18 October 2019 in NYC, a tabletop simulation of a corona pandemic hosted by Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, in partnership with the WEF, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, WHO, World Bank, IMF, UN and many of its sub-organization. It happened less than three months later.
On October 23, 2022 the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, in partnership with WHO, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation et all., conducted "Catastrophic Contagion," a pandemic tabletop exercise at the Grand Challenges Annual Meeting in Brussels, Belgium—Headquarters of the EU and NATO. This time they invited ten current and former Health Ministers and senior public health officials from Senegal, Rwanda, Nigeria, Angola, Liberia, Singapore, India, and Germany. Of particular interest are African countries, that will soon be voting on the nefarious Pandemic Treaty which, if voted in favor by a two-thirds majority will override all national authorities on matters of health; and as of 1 January 2024 will have jurisdiction above the sovereign nation states of the 194 WHO member countries—a worldwide health tyranny. Listen to this video by WHO insider – Dr. Vincent Carroll.
Why were African countries invited to this very frightening Catastrophic Contagion simulation?—An Africa block . . . [has] so far rejected the Pandemic Treaty. Africans . . . experienced the covid hoax . . . three Negro Presidents . . . opposed the vaxx agenda; they ended up dying under strange circumstances.
Why Germany's presence? Germany . . . has the most oppressive government in Europe, an economic and intellectual superpower, also Europe's strongest resistance movements against the covid and the Green (fake) Climate Agenda narrative . . . Will hard-core Dr. Karl Lauterbach, sworn in as Federal Minister of Health about a year ago . . . convince the Africans, Singaporeans and Indians of the Great Good of the Pandemic Treaty?

Turning 4 Billion into 'Bioweapons Factories'
December 9, 2022 — Dr. David Martin has slammed public health authorities around the world for forcing roughly four billion people to take the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) mRNA "kill shots" . . . "legally, when you actually create a thing that manufactures a known pathogen, that is actually biological weapon manufacturing and the fact that your body is doing it means you're a bioweapons factory."
He pointed out that this "scamdemic" that paved the way for billions people to submit to the "experimental" vaccine mandate, would cause a fundamental existential problem with humanity. "That means that we have mRNA and we have DNA modifications that are going to not only impact this generation, but will also impact generations to come," he said . . . Through its COVID-19 vaccine partnership with the US government, Moderna picked up nearly $1 billion in research aid. Then, it joined the list of pharmaceutical companies to take a supply order from the federal government . . . "When you think about the combination of the death rates that are coming off of the injections and the fertility and miscarriage problems coming off of people exposed to the spike protein, this is a much more catastrophic event," he noted.

Comment: Any potential benefits of the COVID-19 booster fail to outweigh the harms for young people ages 18-29, according to a peer-reviewed study published Monday in The BMJ Journal of Medical Ethics. (childrenshealthdefense.org).
Medical pathologists from Heidelberg University Hospital in Heidelberg, Germany have published direct evidence showing how people found dead after mRNA vaccination died. As this team of six scientists explore in their study, these mRNA-vaccinated patients suffered from heart damage because their hearts were attacked by their own immune cells. This autoimmune attack on their own heart cells then led to their damaged hearts beating so many times per second that, once the tachycardia unexpectedly started, they died in minutes.
Digital Currency: Fed moves toward Monetary Totalitarianism
December 9, 2022 — The Federal Reserve is sowing the seeds for its central bank digital currency. It may seem that the purpose of a CBDC is to facilitate transactions and enhance economic activity, but CBDCs are mainly about more government control over individuals. If a CBDC were implemented, the central bank would have access to all transactions in addition to being capable of freezing accounts. It may seem dystopian—something that only totalitarian governments would do—but there have been recent cases of asset freezing in Canada and Brazil. Moreover, a CBDC would give the government the power to determine how much a person can spend, establish expiration dates for deposits, and even penalize people who saved money.
The war on cash is also a reason why governments want to implement CBDCs. The end of cash would mean less privacy for individuals and would allow central banks to maintain a monetary policy of negative interest rates with greater ease (since individuals would be unable to withdraw money, commercial banks to avoid losses). Once the CBDC arrives, instead of a deposit being a commercial bank's liability, a deposit would be the central bank's liability . . . Full story: mises.org
No 2024 US Presidential Elections
November 29, 2022 — Former head of the Liberal Democratic Party, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, during his lifetime made many accurate predictions about the near future [and] unenviable fate of the United States. Thus, the ex-leader of the party reported that the presidential elections in the United States scheduled for 2024 were not destined to take place . . . by the specified date the United States itself will no longer exist . . . Fatal events for the country will take place already in 2023, he added. [He] . . . accurately predicted the date of the start of Russia's special operation . . . on February 22 . . .
Gangs smash everything around, and armed skirmishes in cities are commonplace everyday life of American society . . . America is slowly falling apart. This can be seen, for example, in the map of election results, colored blue and red. "Republican" states are traditionally painted over in red . . . Full story: ukraina.ru ukraina.ru
Comment: Vitaly Bograd, recommends that Russians improve all the time in 2023, as they need to be ready for a "beautiful moment." Some kind of "swing" will begin in the Central Asian countries and Russia. Those who lived in poverty will begin to rise in relation to those who seemed very prosperous," Bograd explained. The economic crisis will have a strong impact on Europe and America. (slovodel.com).
Sleeping with the Enemy
December 12, 2022 — On January 31st, 2022, less than a month prior to Russia's invasion of Ukraine, President Biden designated Qatar as a "Major Non-NATO ally" of the United States. Prior to the Ukraine war, Qatar had been pressured to join the US-NATO consensus against Russia as a "close ally." In turn, Russia had been excluded by FIFA from participating in the Qatar World Cup . . . coinciding with "Day Ten" of the FIFA World Cup, the Pentagon entered into a military cooperation agreement with . . . Qatar . . . Is this one billion dollar sale of anti-drone systems to Qatar intended to threaten Iran? Once installed, who will be pulling the strings? . . .
Sucking the Qatar Emirate into becoming a "Major Non-Nato Ally" and "Friend of America" is intent upon eventually appropriating and/or exerting control through military means, corruption, regime change or otherwise . . . Qatar is not only a military ally of Iran, the emirate is a Partner in the development of the World's largest Maritime Gas Reserves, jointly owned in an agreement between Iran and Qatar . . . The underlying objective is to disrupt enemy military alliances, destabilize the Iran-Qatar Maritime Gas Partnership as well undermine the trade in NLG to the detriment of Western Europe.
[Qatar's "Major Non-NATO Ally" status signifies that the Al-Udeid Base is now located in the territory of a "close ally" of the US] . . . With 11,000 US military personnel [, it is described as "one of the US military's most enduring and most strategically positioned operations on the planet" (Washington Times) . . . the US Air Force's 379th Air Expeditionary Wing, [is] considered to be "America's most vital overseas air command" . . . The US is sleeping with Turkey, a military heavyweight in NATO which just so happens to be operating Russia's S-400 air defense system. Turkey is a Double Speak, de facto ally of Russia . . . Several allies of the US have adopted Russia's S-400 defense system including Saudi Arabia, India, Turkey, Iraq, Egypt. The adoption of the S-400 implies de facto military cooperation with the Russian military. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: The United States is transparently the image of Imperial Rome. It is shedding allies with Ezekiel 38 and 39 in focus and Revelation 17 indicates NATO will one day dump the US. While war against Iran is on the drawing board of the Pentagon, under present conditions, an Iraq style all out Blitzkrieg (conventional theater war) involving the simultaneous deployment of ground, air and naval forces is an impossibility (globalresearch.ca).
Like many other institutions, the US military carries the seeds of its own destruction. After all, despite being funded in a fashion beyond compare and spreading its peculiar brand of destruction around the globe, its system of war hasn't triumphed in a significant conflict since World War II (with the war in Korea remaining, almost three-quarters of a century later, in a painful and festering stalemate). Even the ending of the Cold War, allegedly won when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, only led to further wanton military adventurism and, finally, defeat at an unsustainable cost—more than $8 trillion—in Washington's ill-fated Global War on Terror. And yet, years later, that military still has a stranglehold on the national budget. So many defeats, so little honesty: that's the catchphrase I'd use to characterize this country's military record since 1945 (globalresearch.ca).
Merkel's comment proves Minsk Deal Deception – Russia
December 8, 2022 — Jewish Former German Chancellor Angela Merkel has confirmed her government's duplicity regarding the conflict in Ukraine by confirming that the 2014 ceasefire agreement was meant to give Kiev time to build up its military, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has said . . .
Berlin and "by extension, the West" never intended to implement the Minsk agreements, Zakharova concluded based on Merkel's remarks. The US and its allies "simulated supporting the UN Security Council resolution" which endorsed the roadmap to peace while pumping weapons into Ukraine and "ignored all crimes committed by the Kiev regime . . . for the sake of a decisive strike against Russia" . . . former Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko . . . stated that the peace deal was a ruse to give his government time for a military buildup. He said the same thing to Western audiences in June this year . . . Full story: azerbaycan24.com
Comment: American rivalry with Russia, passively embraced by European states, seriously violates EU's interests and places the entire bloc under a serious threat . . . Germany is the most economically important country for the EU and at the same time the most dependent on Russia (infobrics.org).
Ted Cruz on Twitter files Revelations: 'all about Weaponizing Big Tech'
December 7, 2022 — Republican Senator Ted Cruz has weighed in on the revelations in Elon Musk's ‘Twitter Files' publication, urging that it is "evidence of corruption that goes to the highest level of government."
Appearing on Fox News, Cruz asserted that the effort to crush the Hunter Biden laptop story went "to the highest level of the FBI. And it goes to the highest level of Big Tech. We've known for a long time that big tech is censoring conservatives," Cruz said, adding that "what Elon did here is he just laid naked all of the lies that the corporate media has told."
"It's clear during the 2020 election, over and over and over again, the Biden campaign and the DNC would reach out to their buddies at Twitter and say, hey we don't like this, and their response is ‘handled,' and they'd take it down, over and over and over again," Cruz stated . . . FBI agents met with Twitter weekly . . . Full story: summit.news
Lawsuit filed in Iraq against Trump, Aides for Assassination of Qassem Soleimani and Al-Muhandis
November 28, 2022 — Almost two years after the assassination of Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis in a US drone strike in Baghdad, at least 78 Iraqis filed a lawsuit in an Iraqi court on Sunday, November 27, against then US President Donald Trump and officials of his administration . . . including his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo . . . Though the new Iraqi government led by Prime Minister Shia al-Sudani had promised to take legal action against Trump once in power, it is not clear whether the plaintiffs have the backing of the government or not . . .

Comment: The assassination of IRGC General Soleimani ordered by the President on January 2, 2020 is tantamount to an Act of War against Iran.
Ghana to buy Oil with Gold instead of USD. Next for US-led Coup?
December 8, 2022 — "Ghana's government is working on a new policy to buy oil products with gold rather than US dollar reserves, Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia said . . . The move is meant to tackle dwindling foreign currency reserves coupled with demand for dollars by oil importers, which is . . . increasing living costs . . . Using gold would prevent the exchange rate from directly impacting fuel or utility prices as domestic sellers would no longer need foreign exchange to import oil products."
The US petrodollar buttresses America's position as the world's sole superpower. Wars have been waged against much more powerful foes than Ghana to maintain the petrodollar's dominance. Libyan president Muammar Gaddafi tried out something similar to Ghana's plans about a decade ago, and now he's six feet under while his former country has devolved into a failed state with literal slave auctions.

The Coming Crash of the Climate Cult
December 8, 2022 — The Climate Cult worships two green idols—electric vehicles and wind-solar energy. This is part of a futile UN scheme promoting "Net Zero Emissions" which aims to cool the climate of the world by waging war on CO2 plant food. Green worship is the state religion of all western nations, promoted by billionaires with other agendas . . . The promotion of electric cars and trucks will cause a great increase in the demand for electricity to replace diesel, petrol and gas . . . as day dawns the real workers start moving—big diesel trucks off to pick up the day's loads of gravel, machinery, cattle, tanks, pipes, hay, timber, bricks and concrete. Then comes the traffic that sustains urban life—around sunrise come the commuters heading for city jobs . . . electric trains, lifts and escalators start to run. Then kids are delivered to school, road repairs start and sirens announce the occasional passing of ambulances, fire engines and police vehicles. Finally the tree-change bureaucrats cruise past in their electric cars . . . To achieve net-zero nirvana, all of this early morning traffic rush must be battery-powered. Untold thousands of batteries will need to be fully charged overnight—well before the vast paddocks of Chinese solar panels can deliver one amp of green electricity.
Reliable coal/gas power stations could charge batteries overnight, while city demand for electricity is lower; the green religion demands closure and demolition of anything using hydro-carbons. But Green engineers have the solution—intermittent wind power plus big batteries will re-charge millions of vehicle batteries before dawn.
But what keeps trains, lifts, hospitals and refrigerators going if we have a still night followed by another cloudy day? And will Greens apply the same conservation standards and delaying tactics to wind, solar, hydro and power line construction that they now apply to coal mines? . . . energy reality will come too late. Long lines of city dwellers with bicycles, wheel-barrows and old diesel utes will flee from the hungry cities. Re-powering and re-building will take decades. All this for zero climate benefits—the world has passed the peak of this interglacial and the next long glacial cycle is edging closer. Full story: saltbushclub.com

The Beginnings of a New Covenant
God deals with Israel in the Land of the Covenant in harmony with the seven festivals of Leviticus 23 therefore their elect will be born-again as a nation in one day confirming Israel is God's timepiece. God measures no certain time by us Gentiles for He deals with us as individuals wherever we live—elect seed broadcast throughout the world like wildflowers of the field. His servant Israel is one lineage of the blood of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob—one nation in its Covenant Land bound in Law and culture—separated from the nations as on the Day of Pentecost 120 souls united in Christ separated from the world. But Israel has specific times and seasons to present himself before the Lord, Isaiah could declare, "the nation will be born-again in one" certain year, month, week and day in the Land of Israel.
Outside Israel's fixed natural and spiritual boundaries God's Covenant is of no effect. Her people were never expelled from the Land as chastisement for sin without God setting a precise time for their return. As God will never forsake Israel, we can examine with certainty the times God set for the people and their land.
In understanding prophecy we must bear in mind that God is eternal, omniscient and omnipotent: all His thoughts He has always had; He is not now thinking and will never have a new thought. Every word is a thought expressed: His Word is unchanging and all scripture must be fulfilled in its designated and decreed season and time (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8). Following the completion of His creative work in Genesis 1 comes the historical development of the world, with the history of the heavens and the earth and the primitive condition of man in Paradise (Genesis 2:5-25); of the Fall (Genesis 3), and of the breaking-up of one human race into two distinct and separately dispersed races with "enmity" between the cursed vicarious seed of Satan and the Virgin-born seed of Adam's race in Jesus Messiah (Genesis 4).
In Genesis 1 and Psalm 119:89 we find the Lord fixed and governs time in nature by the Sun, Moon, planets and stars with seasons and cycles. Disruption by tectonic activity, drought, heat waves, glaciations, lightning, violent winds and raging fire; injury, sickness, age and death is the result of sin. This was not so "in the beginning" when the man and his wife dwelt in the paradise of Eden with dominion in peace over the animal, bird and vegetable kingdoms. There was order in this Garden of Plenty with neither friction, anger, nor death.
The husbandman's calling is ancient and honourable; it was needful even in Paradise, and there is true pleasure in the vocation to which God has called and employs us. God inclined Adam in the exercise of his free agency to go from Eden to the Paradise in Eden causing him to rest and abide there in happiness and peace. He went in consequence of a secret impulse or the open command of his Maker Who put him in Paradise which was not a place of spontaneous perfection. Adam was to work, to take trouble, practice forethought, exercise solicitude and sympathy for the objects of his toil; to prune, dress and order the trees and herbs of the garden.
On the principle of II Thessalonians 3:10 and of necessity in a sin-cursed earth, man was bound to follow mainly agrarian pursuits, so three thousand years later when the Lord sent Moses to deliver the Israelites from Egypt to the Promised Land He established their calendar on agrarian principles with seven annual feasts which are shadows and types that lead and instruct us in Christian faith from this cursed earth to the remission of sins and new birth by faith in Christ's Atonement on Calvary to New Jerusalem in the renewed heavens and earth. The Hebrews reckoned their day from sunset to sunset (arbitrarily 6.00 pm) instead of from midnight. We will set forth Jesus' activities as they might have happened in the week before Calvary.
The Hebrew Calendar is a prophetic foreshadow of the New Testament from Calvary to eternity, it ever remains the same so that we can place the events that occupied the last week of our Lord's life on earth, and establish the precise day of His crucifixion. From Exodus 12:1-12 and Daniel 9:25 you will observe the Lord foretold the hour, day, month and year in which Messiah would atone for the accumulated sins of His elect from Adam and the Old Testament saints to His Bride of all Ages and the 144,000 elect Israelites. Jeremiah 25:8-16 foretold and placed Judah's seventy-year captivity in Babylon and as Daniel read Jeremiah 25:11; 29:10 he recognized that sixty-eight of those years had already expired. The Babylonian captivity was completed in 536BC.
Our teaching sermon, "Israel, God's Timepiece" sets forth Israel's chronology from Patriarch Abraham to the conclusion of Daniel's Seventieth Week and the consummation, while teaching sermon, "Easter – When was Jesus Crucified?" sets forth the dates and biblical record of Passion Week.
More than once, Jesus told his disciples and others around him, "My time has not yet come" (John 2:4; 7:6-8). He often foreshadowed His death: "The Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many" (Mark 10:45). The hour, day, week, month and year of Messiah's death was foretold by Moses and Daniel. Isaiah 53:5-56 prophesied, "He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed . . . the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all." The following account of Jesus' last week is taken from the four Gospels wherein He fulfilled the part of Kinsman Redeemer for Adam and "the children of God that were scattered abroad".
Jesus reached Bethany on Nisan 7 six days before Passover. Here on Nisan 8 He spent His last sabbath as a guest in the house of Simon the leper, with Lazarus who had been four days dead and his sisters Martha and Mary. The testimony of many eye-witnesses to Lazarus' raising converted even some of Jesus' adversaries among those resting at Bethany en-route to Jerusalem. The sight of Jesus and also Lazarus roused the Pharisees, and the chief priests conspired to kill Jesus and considered killing Lazarus also (John 11:47-54; 12:1, 9-11). The parade of the Supernatural in Brother Branham's ministry revealing the Son of man in this our day, prophesied in Luke 17:28-30, is just as momentous to the new creation (II Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 6:15) as were the six days of Genesis 1 to the original creation.
Mary and Martha prepared a feast in honour of Jesus (John 12:1-3). Martha served; Mary took a pound of costly ointment of spikenard, anointed Jesus' feet and wiped them with her hair, this proved to be for His burial and He immortalized her for the act (Matthew 26:12-14; Mark 14:1-9).
Brother Branham said: "Now Jesus Messiah's triumphal entry into the city of Jerusalem on the back of a white mule was on Palm Sunday, April 2, AD30" (61-0806, The Seventy Weeks of Daniel, par. 80). On Nisan 9 the Sunday before His death, Jesus began His trip to Jerusalem; nearing the village of Bethpage He sent two disciples ahead telling them to look for an ass and its unbroken colt, loose the animals and bring them to Him (Matthew 21:1-11; Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:29-44; John 12:12-19). On coming in sight of Zion from the ridge of the southern slope of the Mount of Olives a multitude of villagers raised loud hosannas: "Blessed be the King who comes in the Name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest." And they cast their garments on the colt and spread palm branches on the road, not realizing they were fulfilling Zechariah 9:9. "Rejoice greatly O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, your King comes to you: He is just, having salvation; lowly, riding on an ass, even on a colt the foal of an ass".
In this hour of triumph Jesus wept over Jerusalem because the Hebrew dispensation was about to end and the city "knew not the time of its visitation" (Matthew 24:2; Luke 19:44). A perfect parallel to the forerunner of Christ's second Coming, "Los Angeles will go beneath the ocean . . . Oh, city, Capernaum, who calls yourself by the name of the Angels, Los Angeles, how you've exalted yourself into heaven! The very root and seat of Satan, see, you've exalted yourself" (65-1204, The Rapture, par. 191-197). And in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week, "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." On Sunday evening Jesus and His disciples returned and spent the night at Bethany.
On Monday morning Nisan 10, Jesus returned to Jerusalem with His disciples, and feeling hungry He went to pick some figs. Although it was not yet summer the tree was in leaf and early figs often appear with the leaves. Finding no fruit, "Jesus cursed the fig tree [which was emblematic of fruitless Jerusalem], and said to it, No man eat fruit from you forevermore. And His disciples heard it" (Mark 11:12-14).
Israel was apostate and as Daniel 9:26 foretold, "Messiah will be cut off . . . and the people of the prince that shall come, Roman General Titus, will destroy the city and the sanctuary with an overpowering flood of troops, and to the end of the war two thousand years desolations are determined." Could it be later than you think or dare imagine? Jesus was crucified in AD30. We are approaching 2023; after the Lord takes His children Home He will turn to Israel for "the time of Jacob's trouble," 2,023 + 7 = 2030.
"And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of them that sold doves, and told them, 'It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer;' but you have made it a den of thieves" (Matthew 21:11-17). On Monday evening Jesus returned to Bethany and stayed in the home of His friends, Mary, Martha, and Lazarus.
You must understand and recognize that there were two cleansings of the Temple under Jesus' ministry. The cleansing of the Temple was Christ's first public act (John 2:13-17), and according to the synoptic gospels it was also His last public act in Jerusalem (Matthew 21:12-13 Mark 11:15-17; Luke 19:45-46). This appropriately opens and closes His labours in the Court of the Gentiles. He commenced the reformation in the Temple at Jerusalem where it was most needed. "There He found those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting. And when He had made a scourge of small cords, He drove them all out of the Temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables; and said to them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not My Father's House a house of merchandise." The expulsion was a judicial act of the Lord of the Sabbath and the Temple which He calls "My Father's House. The profane traffickers, overawed at this exhibition of superhuman power and majesty, submitted at once. Malachi 3:1-18 foretold that after His forerunner John the Baptist, "Messiah Himself shall suddenly come to His Temple, even the Messenger of the [New] Covenant, in whom you delight: behold, He will come, says the LORD of hosts" . . . for the purpose of cleansing it . . . "And He will purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness".
Caiaphas the high priest had authorized the sale of items necessary for the sacrifices in the Temple. Money was changed because the Temple tax had to be paid in Tyrian shekels—the so-called shekel of the sanctuary—and half shekels. The reason underlying this was that other coinages had an uneven value and weight and because these coins had idolatrous images. Like other temples in the ancient world Jerusalem's Temple functioned as a bank (II Maccabees 3:10-11). The animal and money-changing businesses were a great source of income for the city (Josephus, Jewish War, 6.9.3). Problems arose when abuses developed and business became more important than worship. It was against this avarice that Jesus reacted and took action—and when He did, He challenged the entire banking system of Jerusalem. This interference with the operations of the Temple bank, and so with the bedrock of Judea's economy, was directly a claim for kingship (Court of the Gentiles, Jan H. Nylund).
The gross scandal in the Court of the Gentiles where Jesus taught represented the general profanation and corruption of the theocracy, as in the 16th century Kol Nidre of the Talmudic Jews was introduced into the apostate Judaeo-Roman church by John Tetzel's sale of indulgences forgiving future sins—the Vatican's major source of revenue).
Like Jesus Christ, Martin Luther introduced his Reforms at religious headquarters in Rome which Jesus calls "Satan's seat." He bravely defended his written attacks on orthodox Catholic beliefs and denied the power of Rome to determine what is right and wrong in matters of faith. By holding steadfast to his interpretation of Scripture, Luther provided the impetus for the Reformation, which was a cleansing of the sanctuary.
Brother Branham's ministry displays two cleansings of the sanctuary: His first commission was "to restore the apostolic faith" in holiness (Malachi 4:5, 6b); after His second Commission the curse of the Seventh Vial will be poured into the air to cleanse the Sixth Dimension where we shall meet Jesus (Revelation 16:17; I Thessalonians 4:17).
The matters we are discussing are important as scripture is unfolding in print if you know where to look; so follow the hyperlinks and Bible quotations in our Church Newsletter and prove you have the mind of Christ. Now is the time for self-examination and study. If you neglect to study our main articles you are failing yourself, Jesus Christ, your local pastor, and will be unable to correct me where I might be mistaken. If you neglect to dedicate and obligate yourself in this way you are religious but not Christian.
Through unbelief Israel missed the real Day of Atonement and crucified his kinsman Redeemer, the virgin-born sinless Godman. The blood of bulls and goats was a temporary covering only and could not remit sin. Sins were confessed over and laid upon a sacrificial victim in the outer court, then it was killed (Romans 8:23). Israel's priests would transfer those sins to the sanctuary in the Temple, and on Tishri 10, the annual Day of Atonement, there was a cleansing of the sanctuary when Israel's High priest would present two goats before the Lord at the door of the Temple and the accumulated sin of the Israelite nations would be placed on each goat. The lot is cast as the goats remain standing before the Lord, one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat. Both goats are equally declared to be "for a sin offering," yet only one was slain. The high priest kills the bullock as a sin offering for himself and his house, and for the congregation, and then enters the Holy of Holies with a censor full of live coals from the altar and his hands full of incense. He sprinkles the blood on the Mercy Seat and before it on the sanctuary floor for symbolic cleansing of the Holy Place, defiled by all the uncleanness of the children of Israel in the midst of whom it stood like the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden and as Christ in the midst of the golden lamp stands—a type of Calvary.
He then kills the goat for YHWH and repeats the same ceremony, now in behalf of the whole congregation. Then in like manner shall he cleanse the Holy Place by a seven-fold sprinkling, and returning to the outer court, also the altar of burnt offering (before the rams for burnt sacrifices are offered).
On the Day of Atonement, as distinct from the ordinary sin offerings the blood is brought into the immediate Presence of God where no child of Israel might tread, a type of that one offering of Christ entering with His own atoning Blood into the very Presence, there to appear in our behalf (Hebrews 9:12, 22-24).
The live goat, during the former part of the ceremony, had been left standing before YHWH (Leviticus 16:20-28). Both goats were consecrated to Jehovah. The function ascribed to the second goat in the Law is the complete removal of the transgressions of Israel, symbolically transferred to him as a burden into a solitary land wholly away from God and the camp of His people. Thus as the killing and sprinkling of the first goat visibly set forth the means of reconciliation with God through the substituted offering of an innocent victim, so banishment of the second goat laden with sins, the extirpation of which had been signified by the sacrifice of the first, no less vividly set forth the effect of that sacrifice in the complete removal of those extirpated sins from the holy Presence of YHWH (Psalm 103:12; Micah 7:19).
The second goat is identified as one with the other bearing away sins forgiven, the very sins of the bygone year for which expiating blood has been offered and accepted in the Holy of Holies. Now Revelation 12:10-11, "And I heard a loud Voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the Word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death".
Both goats represent our Saviour, Jesus Christ who paid the price of our sins and bore them in a place of no more remembrance. The effect of the acceptance of the first goat into the Holy of Holies (Hebrews 6:20) symbolized the complete propitiation of the offended holiness of God and His pardon of Israel's sin, so sending the goat to Azazel symbolized the effect of this expiation, in the complete removal of all the penal effects of sin—death—through deliverance by atonement from the power of the Adversary as the executioner of God's wrath (Hebrews 2:14).
Revelation 16:17, "And the seventh angel poured out his Vial into the air; and there came a great Voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done." Once the Seventh Vial is poured to cleanse the sanctuary of the Air, Satan "the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience" is cast down to earth to plague the un-believers and make-believers. The resurrection and glorification of the sleeping saints can begin, and following which the body change and translation of "We who are alive and remain" will commence.
Revelation 15:8, "And the heavenly temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from His power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven Vials of the seven angels were fulfilled." Brother Branham's Vial is poured out into the Air or Sixth Dimension where we will meet the Lord (I Corinthians 15:48-57; I Thessalonians 4:14-17).
Brother Branham quoted Matthew 24:1-3, "And Jesus went out, and departed from the Temple: and His disciples came to show Him the buildings of the Temple. And Jesus said to them, do you see all these things? Truly I say unto you, there shall not be one stone upon another that will not be thrown down [by Titus in AD70]. And as He sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately saying, tell us, 1. When shall these things be? 2. What will be the sign of your [unseen] (Gk.) 'parousia' coming? 3. And what will be the sign of the end of the man's day, and the Day of the Lord"?
"Now, let's stop there . . . the first two verses took place on the Tuesday afternoon of April 4, AD30, [Nisan 11] and the third verse taken place on Tuesday evening of the same day . . . Then He went up on the mountain and set down. See? That there He starts it's in the afternoon. And then when they did, they asked Him up there, said, "We want to know about some things" (63-0323, The Sixth Seal, par. 148-150). And Jesus outlined the six written Seals.
Jesus and His disciples were still on the Mount of Olives at 6.00pm when Tuesday evening became Wednesday, Nisan 12 "And when He had finished all His teaching, Jesus said to His disciples, As you know, the feast of Passover is in TWO DAYS, and the Son of man will be delivered up to be crucified" (Matthew 26:2). And as Jesus and his disciples retired from the mount "the chief priests and elders of the people gathered in the court of the palace of Caiaphas, the high priest, to discuss how they might take Jesus by subtlety and kill Him, but not during the feast lest there be a riot among the people" (Matthew 26:1-5; Mark 14:1-2; Luke 22:1-6).
Satan having entered into Judas, "the son of perdition" stole away to betray his Master "to the chief priests . . . And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver, [the price of a slave at the time (Exodus 21:32)]. And from that time Judas sought an opportunity to betray Him" (Matthew 26:14-16; Mark 14:10-11; Luke 22:1-6). This title "son of perdition" is restricted to Judas, the treasurer and most trusted among the disciples and so-called friend of our Lord (John 17:12), and to the Roman pope, who as "vicar—deputy or substitute for Christ," claims to be His closest friend and most trusted confidant among all disciples of every generation (II Thessalonians 2:3-4; Revelation 17:8, 12). This is blasphemy, for although Jesus is not present in physical form His Holy Spirit is in us.
John 14:18-20, 26, "I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. In a little while I will be gone from the world, but I will be present with you: for I will live again, and you, too, will live. From the day on which you are born-again you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me and I in you . . . But the Comforter, who is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in My Name, shall teach you everything and remind you of all that I have told you." Jesus came from Spirit to flesh in which form He was "with" the disciples, and has returned to Spirit, in which form He is "with and even in us to the end of the ages" (John 13:3; Matthew 28:20).
On Thursday Nisan 13 Jesus sent Peter and John to find a place to eat the Passover meal. "Where do you want us to go, they asked?" Jesus must have seen a vision, for He replied, "As soon as you have entered Jerusalem, you will see a man carrying a pitcher of water. Follow him into the house he enters, and say to the householder, The Master says you are to show us to the guest-chamber where He can eat the Passover with His disciples? He will show you uagsairs to a large room strewn with cushions, and divans. Prepare the meal there. They found everything as Jesus had said: and prepared the Passover supper" (Luke 22:7-13; Matthew 26:17-19; Mark 14:12-16).
"Jesus told the twelve, I have very particularly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer: I will not eat again 'til the true Passover has been offered by My death, the new Kingdom established and Passover abolished with all ceremonial Law." It was never observed in the Gospel dispensation or in heavenly glory. "And Jesus took the cup and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves: for I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the Kingdom of God comes" (Luke 22:15-18). It is as if He forgot the presence of Judas, as if He knew Himself to be in the circle of none but sincere, faithful friends from whom He was soon to depart. In the very beginning He gives to the celebration the character of a feast of farewell, and prepares His disciples for the institution of the Supper commemorating His death. Passover was fulfilled in the new Kingdom (Revelation 1:6; 20:6) by His sacrifice on the Cross (I Corinthians 5:7), and in every commemoration of that sacrifice by the Lord's Supper which He appointed as one of Communion, not only of believers with one another but with Him, and in the Lord's Supper He is joining with us in the feast as promised in Revelation 3:20, "I will sup with him, and he with Me."
"Jesus poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the loin cloth He had about Him. When He came to Simon Peter, he said to Him, Lord, is it right for You to wash my feet? Jesus replied, You don't understand now why I am doing it; but you will soon know. Peter protested, You shall never wash my feet! Jesus replied: If I don't you have no part with Me. Simon Peter exclaimed, Then wash not only my feet, but also my hands and my head. Jesus replied, he that has bathed all over needs only to have his feet washed to be entirely clean (or free from impurity). But He spoke this Word only of the eleven, and not of Judas, into whose heart Satan had planted an impure thought. So He said, not all of you are clean. For He knew who had betrayed Him."
"After washing their feet, He put His robe back on, and everyone returned to their places at table. Then He asked do you understand what I was doing? You call me Teacher and Lord: and you say well; for that is what I am. Therefore if I then, your Lord and Teacher have washed your feet; you should wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example to emulate: do as I have done to you. Truly, a servant is not greater than his master; neither is the messenger greater than the one who sends him. You know these things: obey them and you will be blessed."
"I am not saying this to all of you: I know whom I have chosen, but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, He that eats My bread will betray Me (Psalm 41:9). I tell you now, before it happens, so when it comes to pass, you may believe on Me." His betrayer took that first Lord's Supper of bread which symbolized God's Word manifest in Christ's sinless broken body, and the wine representing His mortal Blood and Holy Spirit. And Jesus had washed Judas' treacherous feet.
Judas partook of the first Lord's Supper with iniquity in his heart and was accursed. Paul warned, "Whosoever eats this bread, and drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily, will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. That's why a man should examine himself beforehand (and if he needs to ask forgiveness, he should first make things right with those he's wronged. Or if he feels someone has wronged him or is at fault, he should go to that person and inform him before taking Communion), for if he eats and drinks unworthily, not discerning the Lord's Body (which is the individual members of the Church), then like Judas he eats and drinks his own damnation" (I Corinthians 11:23-34).
"Such careless and unworthy participation is the reason many of our number are spiritually weak and sickly and some spiritually dead. For if we would examine our own lives we would recognize and correct our shortcomings, so we should not be judged. But when we fall short and are judged by the Word, we are corrected by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world. Therefore when you gather together for the Lord's Supper, wait upon those who are making things right" (I Corinthians 11:27-33). During the last supper Jesus foretold Peter's denials, explained the necessity of His separation, the Coming of the Holy Spirit, the true evidence of the new birth, commanding them to follow the example of His life and to propagate the faith.
Jesus then prayed and around midnight Nisan 14 they departed for Gethsemane (John 14:1-17:26). "In agony of spirit [in the garden named for its oil presses where the pure Olive was beaten to give Light to the world] He broke into a sweat of blood, great drops falling to the ground as He prayed more earnestly" (Luke 22:44; Exodus 27:20), beseeching the Father if there be some other way to atone for Adam and his fallen race. There in His agony He overcame the frailties of flesh and mortal spirit: "Father, if this cup cannot pass unless I drink it, Your will be done" (Matthew 26:42). Then Judas arrived with a mob of thugs organized by the religious leaders to arrest Jesus.
This was a type: Brother Branham said, "Remember we have shown clearly all through the ages that even as Adam and Eve fell because they left the Word, so the Ephesian Age fell by turning slightly from the Word, until with every age continuing to turn away, we have a final repudiation of the Word by the World Church system. This Laodicean Age end[ed] in a blackout of the Word, thereby causing a departure of the Lord from the midst. He stands outside calling to His own that follow Him by obedience to the Word. After a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit this little hunted and persecuted group will go to be with Jesus" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 361:1). The eleven disciples fled and Jesus was led to Caiaphas' palace where He was interrogated throughout the night until the early hours of the day of preparation for the Passover—Friday Nisan 14 (John 18:28; Matthew 27:2; Mark 15:1).
The Jewish leaders were desperate to be rid of Jesus, but the Law forbad them to try a prisoner at night (Talmud Sanhedrin 32a, chapter 4). So "they led Jesus from Caiaphas to Pilate's hall of judgment: it was early (in the day of preparation, between 11:00pm and midnight Thursday our time but already the sixth day, Friday, in Hebrew time). They did not personally enter the judgment hall in case they became defiled and unable to eat the Passover (John 18:28).
Here is a FIXED time: morning is any time before sunrise when it is yet dark. The Sanhedrin found Jesus guilty of blasphemy [as Rome will find the elect Israelites and all who dissent from her dogma from the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Revelation 13:15-18)] and before sunrise they delivered Jesus to Governor Pilate, to pronounce the death penalty. There the entire Council began at once accusing Jesus, "This Man has been telling our nation not to pay taxes to the Roman government, claiming He is our Messiah and King"!
"Pilate found no fault in Jesus, and learning He was of Galilee and therefore under Herod's jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod who was in Jerusalem for the Passover. When Jesus declined to amuse Herod with a miraculous demonstration, he had his troops dress Jesus in royal purple and then sent Him back to Pilate for a joke."
"Knowing Jesus' innocence, "Pilate sought to release Him: but the Jews cried, If you let this Man go, you are not Caesar's friend: whoever makes himself a king speaks against Caesar."
"When Pilate heard these words he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat. It was the preparation day of the Passover, and already about the sixth hour (after midnight or about 6:00am on Nisan 14 according to Roman reckoning, and the trial was still in progress. Another FIXED time).
"With irony Pilate said to the Jews, Behold your King! But they cried out, Away with Him! Away with Him! Crucify Him! Pilate said sarcastically, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, we have no king but Caesar." (Prophesying the fact their nation will be under Roman dominion unto the consummation of life). "Then Pilate gave Jesus to them to be crucified" Matthew 26:30 – 27:2; Luke 22:54-23:25; John 19:12-16).
The purple robe was taken, and Jesus wore only His own clothes to Calvary, which, before He was crucified, were stripped from Him and sold in a sweep while He looked down naked from the Cross about three hours after Pilate had delivered Him to be crucified (John 19:15-18).
Mark 15:25 says, "It was about the third hour [of the day or 9:00am] when they crucified Him." The time of the Temple morning sacrifice.
The synoptic gospels declare that "from about the sixth hour there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour" or from noon until 3:00pm when Jesus died. This could not have been an eclipse because it was the middle of the month when the moon is full. The darkness signified God had rejected the regular evening sacrifice, and light returned once the true and accepted sacrifice was fulfilled (Matthew 27:45-50; Mark 15:33-37; Luke 23:44-46).
Time was drawing-on. (Less than three hours remained to 6:00pm and the High Day or holy convocation of Nisan 15, and the first day of Unleavened Bread. As their days were not actually regulated by the clock, but like the months and religious festivals, by observation of the sun and harvest, daytime may have been several hours longer at this time of year). John 19:31, "The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation of the Passover, so that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, for that sabbath day was a high day, asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, (causing almost instant suffocation), so that they might be taken away".
The Jew's first concern after the crucifixion was obeying the letter of the Law. Jesus had to be buried in haste for Jewish Law commands: "If a man committed a sin worthy of death, and is hanged on a tree: His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but you shall bury him that day" (Deuteronomy 21:22-23).
The Jewish day begins at sunset, the Passover meal will be served on the evening of Nisan 15, less than three hours away. According to John 19:14 and 16, and John is emphatic about this: "It was the day of preparation of the Passover . . . then Pilate handed Jesus over to the Jews to be crucified".
On the day of preparation, the evening sacrifice was killed at the sixth hour and offered at the seventh (1:00pm). The killing of the Passover lambs began immediately after and finished at the ninth hour (3:00pm) when our Lord "Gave up the ghost." And all four gospels state emphatically that Jesus was buried before sunset on Nisan 14.
The new day beginning at 6:00pm was the HIGH DAY of Nisan 15, the FIRST day of the feast (John 19:31) when the Passover meal was eaten. Nisan 15 is a FIXED date and was always a sabbath no matter on which day of the week it fell; that year it fell on a Saturday, (our Friday sunset to Saturday sunset).
On Friday Nisan, 14 AD30 Roman authorities arrested and Israel crucified their true Passover Lamb, burying His body in a tomb (Mark 15:11-14; John 19:6, 15). Entering His theophany Jesus visited the Old Testament saints in paradise, vindicating Enoch, Moses, David, Elijah and all who received their Messages; to those across the chasm He said, "He that believes on Me has everlasting Life. I Am that bread of Life. Your fathers ate manna in the wilderness, and are dead [expunged from the Book of Life (Hebrews 6:47-51; Exodus 32:33)]. This is the bread which comes down from heaven that a man may eat, and not die. I Am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world" (John 6:47-52). On Saturday Nisan 15 Jesus was waved before the Lord for approval as the first ripe sheaf of the "barley harvest"—the Old Testament saints—ground into flour and baked into unleavened bread on the first of seven days. The following six days of unleavened bread represent the Pentecostal saints whose Apostolic faith was small but pure barley flour sieved, and every grain the same (Hebrews 13:8). On Sunday morning Nisan 16 Jesus raised His glorified body and ascended to the Seventh Dimension to cleanse the heavenly sanctuary of the sins of the Old Testament saints with His precious Blood. Then He descended, raised and glorified the Old Testament saints, and Paradise was done away.
Sunday Nisan 16 began fifty days of the Pentecostal Feast typed by the "wheat harvest" signifying Christ's New Testament Bride born by revelation of the spoken Word for her dispensation: Pentecost, Seven Church Ages of PART Word (with Christ's mediation for ignorance of "that which is perfect" or complete so long, as the Book was sealed), and Christ's end-time Bride who receive the perfect interpretation of the Word through the ministry of William Branham the Elijah of Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11 and Revelation 10:7 (I Corinthians 13:10-13). Two thousand years sowing and cultivation is represented in the harvest of Christ's "Wheat" Bride of all ages. Our resurrection or harvest is typed by the resurrection or harvest of the Old Testament saints.
The women found Jesus' tomb empty (Luke 24:7-8); He appeared to Mary Magdalene (John 20:11-18); to Brother Cleopas and another disciple on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35), then to ten of His disciples (John 20:19-24). Thomas doubts but is convinced when he sees and touches the risen Christ (John 20:26-28). He next appeared to 500 simultaneously (I Corinthians 15:6). As He prepared to leave His disciples Jesus instructed Peter (John 21:15-22). Jesus gave the Great Commission in Matthew 28:16-20 and ascended to heaven "having shown Himself to His disciples alive after His passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God" (Luke 24:50-53). Forty days after His resurrection, Jesus told His disciples that they must remain in Jerusalem until they receive regeneration and the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit. Then He was taken up into a cloud and two men in white appeared and told the disciples that Jesus had gone to Heaven (Acts 1:2-11).
40 + 10 = 50. "After ten days the Day of Pentecost had fully come and they were all with one mind in one place. Suddenly there came a sound from heaven like a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them cloven tongues as of fire distributing and resting upon each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance" (Acts 2:1-4).
God never changes His ways, and since the Old Testament is a shadow and type of the New Testament, we can recognize prophecy. As we have demonstrated (above) God has not changed times. The Great Flood caused earth to move on its axis destroying the great vapour canopy surrounding the earth that maintained a uniformly warm temperate climate worldwide, causing catastrophic and changeable climatic conditions. Although the year has been lengthened, God has not changed His prophetic calendar in which months are each thirty days and prophetic year 360 days.
Forty has long been universally recognized as an important number, both on account of the frequency of its occurrence, and the uniformity of its association with a period of probation, trial, and chastisement—(not judgment, but the chastisement of sons, and of a covenant people – Hebrews 12:6-8). It is the product of 5 and 8, and points to the action of grace (5), leading to and ending in revival and renewal (8). This is certainly the case where forty relates to a period of evident probation. But where it relates to enlarged dominion, or to renewed or extended rule, then it does so in virtue of its factors 4 and 10, and in harmony with their signification.
Ten is one of the perfect numbers, and signifies the perfection of Divine order, commencing, as it does, an altogether new series of numbers. The first decade is the representative of the whole numeral system, and originates the system of calculation called "decimals," because the whole system of numeration consists of so many tens, of which the first is a type of the whole. Completeness of order, marking the entire round of anything, is, therefore, the ever-present signification of the number ten. It implies that nothing is wanting; that the number and order are perfect; that the whole cycle is complete.
Fifty is the number of jubilee or deliverance. It is the issue of 7 x 7 (7²), and points to deliverance and rest following on as the result of the perfect consummation of time.
The Gentile dispensation will end one Nisan 14 as it began with the second crucifixion of the Son of God marked by an unprecedented earthquake sinking a 1,500 x 300–400 mile segment of earth's crust taking Los Angeles to bottom of the Pacific. On the third day, the first Day of Pentecost the resurrection of the sleeping Church Age saints will commence Church Age by Church Age, and after forty days the Lord will deal with Christ's end-time Bride to fulfill our Pentecostal Jubilee. We will discuss this when we resume our study of the "Tent Vision" Jesus showed His Prophet William Branham. nl1236.htm
