Bible Believers' Newsletter 1242
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we appreciate your fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
Through Israel's unbelief the Lord sent four beasts (Gk. 'therion'), metaphorically, brutal, bestial men or to rule over and chastise Israel until "the time of Jacob's trouble" (Jeremiah 30:7). Those four beasts were the Gentile World Empires of Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome. Israel and the world will be ruled by the Judaeo-Roman church under until the consummation of Life. After Jerusalem's high priest John Hyrcanus I assimilated the self-styled Edomite Jews of Cain's race in 125BC they crucified Israel's Messiah the Lord God turned from the Israel nation to anyone of Adam's race anywhere who could receive the faith of Jesus Christ to be born-again. And He sent four living creatures (Gk. 'zoon') under the first Four Seals of Revelation 6, calling "Come" the present Truth" the Word for your Day . . . what Jesus is doing NOW!" The Capstone formed by Christ's end time Bride cries "Grace, grace unto It". For "by grace through faith alone are we saved" and born-again (Zechariah 4:7). "Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin" (Romans 4:8).
Our main article, "Four Beasts vs. the Kingdom of God" expounds the contrast between Law and grace while our news items unveil the sin of the great men and women of this world and their sychophants, who, having sold their soul to partake Satan's Eden and the kingdoms of this world worship the g_d of this world, and know it not.
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.
The US Imperial Bully – Feared and Hated throughout the World
January 31, 2023 — 90 Seconds to Midnight according to the Doomsday Clock. The Nobel Peace Laureates are casually blaming Russia, without recalling the history of nuclear war, not to mention Joe Biden's 1.3 trillion dollar program to develop "more usable", "low intensity" "preemptive nuclear weapons" to be used on a "first strike basis" against both nuclear and non nuclear states as a means of "self defense".
Let us recall the history of the "doomsday scenario" which was part of America's Manhattan project launched in 1939 with the participation of Britain and Canada . . . a secret plan to develop the atomic bomb coordinated by the US War Department, headed (1941) by Lieutenant General Leslie Groves.
Prominent physicist Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer had been appointed by Lt General Groves to head the Los Alamos Laboratory (also known as Project Y) which was established in 1943 as a "top-secret site for designing atomic bombs under the Manhattan Project." Oppenheimer was entrusted in recruiting and coordinating a team of prominent nuclear scientists including Italian Physicist and Nobel Prize Laureate Dr. Enrico Fermi who joined the Los Alamos Laboratory in 1944.
Oppenheimer not only played a key role in coordinating the team of nuclear scientists, he was also engaged in routine consultations with the head of the Manhattan project Lieutenant General Groves, specifically with regard to the use of the first atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which resulted in more than 300,000 immediate deaths . . .

Comment: Last week I was embedded with the Russian army and visited two towns in southeastern Ukraine. The first town was called Henichesk, a port city along the Sea of Azov in Kherson Oblast (province) of southern Ukraine, bordering on Crimea. The Russian army, patrolling the city, went with us—the embedded journalists—for protection. But actually the protection was not really needed; the people in Henichesk, at least the majority with whom I spoke, were very happy that the Russian army was there. These people all said the same thing: They felt protected from the criminal gangs, with their Nazi ideology, who raged the towns. They in turn hoped that Ukraine will prosper again . . . (covertactionmagazine.com).
In the long state of hostilities between the United States and Cuba, it has always been the United States—specifically the Pentagon and the CIA—that has been the aggressor. Given such, Cuba had every right in the world to defend itself from what Martin Luther King described as the "greatest purveyor of violence in the world" . . . Needless to say, most Americans were relieved and pleased with Kennedy's resolution of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Not so, however, the Joint Chiefs of Staff. They were livid. Kennedy had effectively left Cuba permanently in communist control, something that the Pentagon considered to be a grave threat to "national security." The JCS considered Kennedy's resolution of the crisis to be the biggest defeat in US history. They considered Kennedy to be . . . a coward and, even worse, a traitor . . .
What would Kennedy have done with Ukraine if he had been president? He would never have allowed the Pentagon to use NATO to absorb former members of the Warsaw Pact. He would have also recognized that Russia's reaction to US nuclear missiles in Ukraine would have been the same as the US reaction to Russian missiles in Cuba. He would have understood that their reaction to having US nuclear missiles in Ukraine would be no different from their reaction to having those US nuclear missiles in Turkey. In fact, there is no doubt that Kennedy would have recognized that NATO was a Cold War dinosaur that needed to be put down, especially given the end of the Cold War.
Where is President Biden in all this? Needless to say, Biden, unfortunately, is no John Kennedy (fff.org).
The Pentagon's prediction of 'inevitable' conflict with China in 2025 shows that war is America's primary 'export commodity' (infobrics.org).
Secrets of the United Nations
The United Nations are currently rolling out Agenda 2030, with the notorious "sustainability goals." This worldwide project aims to completely transform every aspect of human existence: food, sexuality, family, work, finance, health, education, everything! This will supposedly put an end to poverty, hunger, inequality, sickness, and other bad things. A former executive director who worked at the UN for two decades, tells a different story. He explains that the UN is controlled by criminals who use it to enrich themselves, and enslave humanity. We are revealing a lot more than just this video. For example how one single corporation virtually owns the entire world, who the obscured entities are that control most governments, how our elections are being rigged to position puppets of criminals, how our weather is being manipulated to create "climate change," and even how pandemics are orchestrated to impose tyranny on humanity. Everything is 100% evidence based, and can be extensively fact checked through hundreds of references.
The United Nations is an international Jewish criminal organization owned by oligarchs. Follow the trail through the League of Nations, Milner's Kindergarten, Cecil Rhodes' world government plans, Rothschild, Oppenheimer, City of London, etc., etc. Full story: stopworldcontrol.com
Ransacking the World Economy 'til 'You'll Own Nothing'
January 3, 2023 — The Global Elite is intent on reshaping world order by killing off a substantial proportion of the human population and enslaving those left alive as transhuman slaves imprisoned in 'smart' cities. As part of achieving this outcome, the global economy is being ransacked and destroyed: This is intended to deprive people of the sustenance necessary to resist the entire Elite program that, among other outcomes, will concentrate virtually all remaining wealth in Elite hands.
This program has been planned in detail by elite agents in organizations like the World Economic Forum and the World Health Organization and is being implemented by relevant international organizations and multinational corporations (particularly those in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, and the corporate media), as well as national governments and medical organizations . . .

Comment: Brother Branham said:
"Now, what has science brought to us? Now, you may be shocked just for a moment. Science has brought to us sickness, death, and diseases. Now, you're only been taught one side of the picture. But there's two sides to it. You say, "Science has invented this, that, and the other." Well, we're going to grant you that privilege. But lets look at the other side. Science has brought us sickness. Science has brought us diseases, death."
"Look! Scientific hybreeding has brought death to the generation, of foods and things. It's got the people so soft and so, until the man and women are made up out of a bunch of muck, and there's no structure in it. It's become a bunch of soft jellyfish. They can't live without an air conditioner. They can't play a baseball game, if one of them gets tapped somewhere, it kills him, in the boxing rings and whatmore. And it's so soft till men and women, well, it's perverting them."
"And they're injecting this hybreed into cattle which has come back into mankind now, according to science themselves, and is making perversions out of them. Because, when a cow is hybrid, or any food is hybrid, that food makes blood cell, and blood cell is your life. See what it's done? And then, into meat, they inject these here injections into the meat, and now it's proved that these injections take effect upon the human race. Scientific!"
"They spray the fields with this DDT, I seen the other day, and now we got eight hundred sick people in this community from eating eggs. Do you remember years ago when I first, when we had the little bitty structure here, and I was prophesying, and said, "It shall come to pass in the last days, don't live in a valley and don't eat eggs." I've got it on my book. I thought there was something about that, and I went and looked at it. "Don't eat eggs." That was way back in 1933. Eggs has got something in them now, and I see where science says that a man over fifty years old should never eat an egg, because it's the hardest thing on a heart that can be eaten. Diseases! (63-0721, He cares do You Care, par. 96-99).
"I went back in my book where the Lord spoke to me in 1931, and there I had written in my book, "In the last days, warn the people not to eat eggs or live in a valley." And, see, not know what fallout and things would be, see, but yet the Lord forewarned that, way back thirty years ago, see, "Not to live in a valley, in the last days," and, "Don't eat eggs," everything will be poisoned. See? And that's just what's happened. Now imagine that, thirty something years ago" (63-0731, There is only One Way provided by God for Everything, par. 46).
"Brother Branham, when you prophesy about: won't eat eggs, don't live in the valley, was that prophecy just for you or for the congregation?" Years ago, about thirty years ago, I gave a prophecy that it would come to pass that in the last days that there would be diseases amongst animals, amongst cattle, and eggs, even to eggs. And it come to pass, that there'd be eggs that wouldn't be fit to eat. Also, it would come to pass that people living in valleys . . . Now remember, I prophesied that way back thirty years ago, that it would come to pass, that people living in valleys, that I'd ask the Christians to move from valleys, and that they're not to eat . . . different meats and things like that, would be poison. It'd be dangerous (I believe the way I had it) for people to live in valleys.
Now, that was before they had fallout or knowed anything about fallout. But that was the Holy Spirit warning me. And right now, even to our cattle (You see them off the markets,) being sprayed by DDT has set up something in the cow (64-0830E, COD, Q. 427, par. 177-178).

Four Beasts vs the Kingdom of God
God interpreted Daniel's dream in chapter 7 as He had explained the dreams of others through His prophet. In his dream Daniel saw four successive Gentile World Empires that would rule over Israel until Messiah destroys their adversaries; then the kingdom will be restored to Israel with Messiah ruling from David's throne for a thousand years of peace. These Gentile powers are symbolized by four beast signified by a hybrid golem expressing all of their evil attributes (Daniel 7:2-27). Eight hundred years after Daniel the prophet John saw those demonic spirits gathered into Papal Rome at the end-time and worshipped as God (Revelation 13:1-10, 15-18; Matthew 4:8-9).
Daniel 7:2-8, "Daniel spoke saying, in my dream I saw four winds of the heavens strive upon the great sea".
As in Zechariah 6:5 and Revelation 7, the four winds represent God's servants of judgment, in war and strife, coming from the cardinal points to chastise Israel. Revelation 7 foretells the destruction of all life after the sixfold purpose of Gabriel's instructions is accomplished, and 144,000 elect Israelites reconciled to God (Daniel 9:24). John foresaw the destruction the Gentile world in the battle of Armageddon (Revelation 19:14-21), as did Ezekiel 9 (and Jesus in Matthew 24:2) foresaw the destruction of Jerusalem when Titus besieged and starved her defenders before burning the city and temple in AD70.
The "great sea" is the Mediterranean whence the last empire, Rome, arose (Revelation 13:1). The sea speaks of chaos and the symbolism reminds us of the Masonic motto, "out of chaos, order" for here it symbolizes ALL "peoples and nations and multitudes and tongues" over whom Papal Rome will rule under the coming New World Order (Revelation 17:1, 15).
"Four great beasts, diverse one from another, rise in succession from the Gentiles. The first was like a lion with eagle's wings the Babylonian empire under Nebuchadnezzar (Jeremiah 4:6-7; Ezekiel 17:1-3): as I watched its wings were plucked so that it could no longer fly and it was left standing on the earth, on two feet like a man, and a man's heart was given to it" (Daniel 2:37-38). "And a second beast (the Medo-Persian Empire), was like a bear; it raised up on one side (or became powerful in one dominion) and it held three ribs between its teeth (Egypt, Lydia and Babylon): and a voice said, 'Become powerful, and devour many people!' After this I saw a third (the Grecian empire of Alexander the Great) like a leopard but upon its back were four wings of a fowl and it had four heads (representing Alexander's successors between whom the empire was divided into the kingdoms of Egypt, Babylonia, Syria and Greece); and dominion was given to it" (Daniel 8:20-22). "After this I saw in my dream a fourth beast (the Roman Empire), dreadful to describe and incredibly strong. It had great iron teeth and devoured some of its victims by tearing them apart with its huge iron teeth. Others it crushed beneath its feet (of iron mixed with clay after Imperial Rome had become Papal Rome—Daniel 2:40-45). It was different from all the beasts that were before it; more brutal and vicious. And it had ten horns," (the kingdoms into which the Roman Empire divided (Daniel 2:40-43; Revelation 12:3; 13:1; 17, 3, 12, 17).
In Revelation 13:3, John "saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death: and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast." This wounded head was the pagan Roman Empire, the great political world power that revived as the Judaeo-Roman Catholic spiritual empire. Pagan Rome divided and conquered. Her iron teeth tore and devoured. Whom she tore and devoured could not rise again as when she destroyed Carthage and sowed her to salt. The same iron seed remained in her when she arose as the false church, and her policy is (Lat.) 'semper eadem,' "always the same"—divide and conquer. Rome established a priestly hierarchy between God and men called Nicolaitanism, and Jesus hates it (Daniel 7:19-23; Revelation 2:6).
"I considered the horns (or kingdoms into which the Roman Empire was divided—the Ostrogoths, Visigoths, Franks, Vandals, Seuvi, Alemanni, Anglo-Saxons, Heruli, Lombards and Burgundians), when suddenly another power, a little horn, appeared among them, before whom three of the first horns were uprooted (the Vandals, Heruli and Ostrogoths). This horn had a man's eyes (signifying mental and spiritual faculties) and a mouth speaking presumptuously".
This horn does not receive a crown like the ten political powers (Revelation 13:1) but intrudes into the divine realm and will receive global hegemony for forty-two months. This "little horn" will be the last pope of Vatican City, who, incarnate of the Devil will rule the ten once sovereign states of the old Holy Roman empire confederate under the Treaty of Rome which brought about the European Economic Community, now the European Union (EU) (Revelation 17:8-14). In league with them, but ruling from Jerusalem, the Pope will blaspheme; harass and martyr the 144,000 Israelite saints, establish a new order of religious dispensations and a new morality. Three and a half years after his incarnation he will force the mark of the beast—Rome's trinitarian dogma—on pain of death (Daniel 7:25; Revelation 12:7-17; 13:1-5). This will culminate in Armageddon and the consummation of all life on earth, but in his dream Daniel saw beyond Armageddon to the Millennium, followed by the White Throne Judgment and general resurrection and eternity.
Let's read on past the Gentile dispensation into the Day of the Lord.
Daniel 7:9-10 parallels John's vision of Revelation 1:10-16 in the Day of the Lord, "I watched as thrones were cast down for all twenty-four elders: the Old Testament Patriarchs and the twelve New Testament apostles (Matthew 19:28) signifying the end of the Gentile dispensation. The Eternal One manifest in Jesus Christ sat down wigged as a Judge, His hair was white as wool (indicating maturity and wisdom that accompany the experience of an elder" (Hebrews 7:1-3; John 5:22-27; I Corinthians 6:1-3). "His garment was white as snow" (not dipped in the blood of His enemies as it will be at Armageddon—Revelation 19:11-13). This cloud photographed over Arizona on February 28, 1963 (Psalm 19; 50:6; Romans 1:16-20; 10:18) heralded Revelation 10:1-4. Christ's mediation as Son of God was fulfilled on March 8, 1963; the Laodicea Church Age ended and Redemption was over. Jesus claimed the Book of Redemption, loosed its Seals and resumed the prophetic office Son of man and judge. Descending upon Mount Sunset Arizona with the open Book He caught Brother Branham up into the Pillar of Cloud.
"His throne was like a fiery flame, and its wheels as burning fire" (speaking of judgment in the lake of Fire, which destroys all that is impure). Fire or Light is the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. It is the Shekinah which took the form of a Dove at Jesus' baptism by John; as Fire when God spoke to Moses from the bush, a flaming Pillar that led Israel through the Wilderness, and horses and a chariot that carried Elijah into the heavens. Natural fire alone cannot annihilate spirits but the lake of holy Fire will destroy sin and sinners, and renew this earth.
"A river of fiery judgment flowed before Him (Psalm 50:1-6; 97:1-5; Isaiah 30:27-33; 66:15-16; II Peter 3:10; Revelation 20:14-15): thousand thousands ministered unto Him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened."
The "thousand thousands" who minister to Christ are the glorified Bride of all Ages who return with our Lord after the general resurrection to judge the nations (I Corinthians 6:1-3). Having judged themselves by the Word, they died to the world hid with Christ in God and cannot come to condemnation, having passed from death into Life by the new birth (John 5:24; Colossians 3:3).
These are the Lamb's Book of Life, the Spiritual seed or genealogy of the LAST Adam, Jesus Christ, made manifest in His saints. These are the Family of God already with Jesus because they are part of the Logos made manifest, and one with Christ through the invisible union or new birth. This is the eternal security of the believer. This is our hope of glory and it cannot fail.
The vision of Daniel 7:9-10 is after Armageddon and the millennium because the general resurrection and White Throne Judgment follow the thousand years (Revelation 20:3, 7-15). The "ten thousand times ten thousand" who stand before the King and His Bride missed the first resurrection and have risen in the general resurrection to be judged by us (Matthew 25:31-41).
Judgment commenced when Revelation 4, 5 and 10:1-7 were fulfilled after Christ's Mediation as Son of God and Mediator for He returned as Son of Man, King and Judge as the full Word has been in effect since the revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963 (64-0823E, COD, par. 57; John 5:22, 27; Acts 17:30-31; I Corinthians 13:10). Judgment must begin at the house of God. Hence Brother Branham's Message IS Christ the fullness of the Word that indicts the apostate church.
Revelation 20:11-15, "And I saw a great White Throne, and One who sat upon it, from Whose Presence the earth and sky passed away (Daniel 2:35; II Peter 3:10; Revelation 21:1). And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: (these record the sinners whose names have been REMOVED from the Book of Life, OR physical Serpent's seed NEVER in the Book of Life as it is the genealogy of the FIRST Adam): and ANOTHER Book was opened, which is the Book of Life (containing the names of the "saved" who are sanctified but without the Holy Ghost): and the dead were sentenced according to the things written in the books, each according to his works."
"And the sea gave up the dead who were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and all were tried and their case determined according to their works. Then death and hell were thrown into the lake of Fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was NOT found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of Fire."
The FIRST death is physical, the death of the body. The SECOND death is spiritual, the death of the soul. Until this last age, everyone, even the saints, meet sin's penalty in physical death. Ezekiel 18:4 says "the SOUL that sins shall surely die." This second death is spiritual annihilation in the lake of Fire.
Returning to Daniel's dream, we find verses 11-14 follow verse 8, spanning time from Armageddon to the start of the Millennium. "I noticed the arrogant presumptuous words spoken by the horn (Papal Rome): I watched till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame."
Like John, Daniel is witnessing events that will happen in the Day of the Lord after the end of the Gentile dispensation when Satan is cast out of heavenly places and incarnates the Pope to rule the New World Order. This fourth beast is Papal Rome whose great swelling words demand worship of Lucifer incarnate when the Pope breaks his covenant with the self-styled "Jews," forcing the mark of the beast. This causes the Black Nobility of Revelation 17:12-17, NATO to side with Communism and destroy Rome, leading to Armageddon, and the destruction of all life in an atomic conflagration, cleansing earth and sky for the Millennium.
Revelation 19:20, "And the beast (Papal Rome) was taken, and with him the false prophet (or Pope) who wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them who had received the mark of the beast (Trinitarianism and Catholic reasoning against the revealed Word), and them that worshipped his image (the Protestants). These both were cast alive into a lake of Fire burning with brimstone" (Malachi 4:1-3; Revelation 2:20-23).
Their judgment is "set" or predetermined by the unforgivable sin—rejecting the Holy Spirit which is the PRESENT Truth or Word for the hour. Jesus calls Rome "the great whore" and "mother of harlots" (her Protestant daughter churches) "and abominations of the earth" (such as Islam—Revelation 17:1, 5; 19:2).
Jesus said, other than the 144,000 elect Hebrews "All who miss the first resurrection and Marriage Supper of the Lamb in the sky will come under the power of Papal Rome during the tribulation, and take the mark of the beast" (Revelation 13:5-8). So will the physical Serpent's seed that were never in Adam's race (Revelation 17:8). Paul reminds us, "He who is joined to a harlot is one body. For two, said God, shall be one flesh" (I Corinthians 6:16).
Daniel 7:11, ". . . The beast (Papal Rome) was slain, and his body (Protestants and others joined to the harlot church through FALSE worship, which is spiritual adultery), cast into the lake of Fire and destroyed." All OFF the Book of Life and LOST: case closed, no appeal (Daniel 9:27e; Revelation 20:10; 22:10-20).
"For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God (Roman Catholic and Protestant churches claim to be His house, declaring they are the wife of Christ bound to obey His every Word): and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?" (I Peter 4:17-18).
". . . if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged" (I Corinthians 11:31).
God sent US a prophet in these last days named William Branham, to RESTORE the apostolic faith (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Acts 3:21), FINISH the mystery of God (Acts 3:21; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7), and call both the wise AND foolish virgin OUT from Rome and her (once) Protestant daughters (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4) into the UNITY of the faith (Ephesians 4:13). Those remaining in the harlot church have not judged themselves by God's unchanging Word and are indicted. They will be found judged by that Word, and cast into the lake of Fire BEFORE the millennium.
Daniel 7:12, "As concerning the other three beasts, they had their dominion taken away: (because Christ's eternal rule commences with the millennium and they will lie in the grave until the general resurrection) yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time".
Unlike the fourth beast who is cast into the lake of Fire before the millennium, these will rise in the general resurrection after the millennium for judgment, as explained in Revelation 20:7-9: "When the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, and shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went upon the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and Fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them."
Daniel 7:13-14, 27, "Next in my dream I saw one like the Son of man come with clouds of heaven, presented to the Ancient of days. And dominion, and glory, and a kingdom were given to Messiah that all people, nations, and languages, should serve Him whose dominion is everlasting. It will not pass away, and His kingdom shall not be destroyed."
". . . And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him."
This is the blessed fulfillment of Daniel 2:44 and I Corinthians 15:23-28, ". . . every man will be resurrected in his own order: Christ the first fruits; afterward those who are His at His "parousia" (the end-time Bride and the 144,000). Then comes the end when He shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father, after He has put down all rule and all authority and powe; for Christ must reign, until He has put all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death (Revelation 20:14) . . . And when all things are subdued unto Him, then shall the Son also Himself be subject unto Him that put all things under Him, that God may be all in all."
This is the time when the new heavens and new earth will manifest.
Throughout chapter 7, Daniel was conscious that he was experiencing a spiritual dream. Confused and disturbed by all he had seen, he approached one of those standing beside the throne and asked the meaning of these things. Those beside the throne are the theophanies or angels of Christ's Bride of all ages seen in Revelation 5:9-14. He who interpreted the dream was Brother Branham, the "angel" or messenger of Revelation 1:1 who revealed "Jesus Christ, the mystery of God" to both John and Daniel.
Daniel and John shared the same vision at different stages of its fulfillment. Both were told to "Seal up the vision and prophecy until the time of the end" (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4). The "time of the end" or "end-times" commenced when Christ fulfilled Revelation 4, 5 and 10:1-7.
No one was worthy to loose the Seals and open the Book or even look thereon but He Who redeemed it. Revelation 1:1 reveals that even Jesus did not know these mysteries until God gave them to Him after His earthly sojourn. He then revealed them to His angel, William Branham, the messenger to the Seventh Church Age, in whose watch the mystery of God was finished (Revelation 10:7).
John was caught up in the Spirit of revelation into the Day of the Lord: "the time of Jacob's Trouble" after the Gentile dispensation. And in a series of visions during his imprisonment on the Isle of Patmos (AD95-96), he saw and heard Brother Branham preach these mysteries in the revelation of the Seven Seals from 1963 to 1965, as Jesus revealed them to him, and John recorded them under Old Testament symbols.
As Brother Branham was the one man to whom Jesus revealed the mystery it was Brother Branham from whom both John and Daniel received these revelations in visions and dreams, thousands of years before he was born. And it was Jesus Christ Whom Daniel saw enthroned almost 600 years before He was born, and 2,500 years before He was enthroned.
