Bible Believers' Newsletter 1245
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
We greet you in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ and extend an especial welcome to our new subscribers. We look forward to our fellowship around God's unchanging Word and encourage new and long term subscribers to visit our Power Point Presentation, The Second Coming of Christ here or here.
Our main article, "Great Expectations" was intended as a prelude to what I planned, so be in prayer for we have not touched upon those subjects. We have further expectations: interesting times and blessings for Christ's "little flock," and serious regrets for those without the Body of Christ. Unawares denominational people are without the New Covenant as Israelites dwelling outside the Promised Land are without the Old Covenant. These situations are all near term. We must each polish our faith and prove all things by God's Holy Bible which is His Absolute, and ours. Subscribers and readers who are not yet baptized in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ must glean a clear understanding of the true oneness of the godhead, repent of past unbelief and be baptized in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin (Acts 2:38-39).
This week's news focuses on Joe Biden's war in behalf of the "usual suspect" who over almost 1,500 years has been trying to conquer, plunder, and rule the world from North Asia. They themselves don't do the physical fighting and have used the Mongols, Huns, French, British, Germans, and now the United States to spend their blood and treasure.
In responding to our request last week a Sister with keen revelation wrote:
"I want to go home, I'm so Homesick down here.
I've tried to hold up until you wipe away my tears.
I never thought I could miss a place I've never known.
But I want to go, but I want to go Home."
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.
A Nano-Second to Midnight
February 22, 2023 — The main focus of the incompetent Biden Regime is on demonizing white Americans who are not "Woke Democrats" and on raising tensions with Russia, already more dangerous than during the Cuban missile crisis. The crazed warmonger, Victoria Nuland who Biden appointed and the Senate confirmed Undersecretary of State, announced that Washington considers Russian installations in Crimea "legitimate targets" and the US government supports Ukrainian attacks on Russian territory.
Yesterday Putin announced that Russia is suspending participation in the last remaining nuclear arms agreement (START) as Washington insists on Russia's compliance in the absence of its own. Putin has put Russian nuclear missiles on Combat Alert status.
What kind of utterly stupid and irresponsible government in Washington would bring us to such a situation?
What kind of imbeciles lead NATO countries who put their own countries' survival at risk in order to please Washington.
What kind of completely stupid leadership there is in Finland that can't wait to jump into this dangerous situation by joining NATO?
Where is America's idiot president while Russia puts nuclear missiles on Combat Alert? Is he on the telephone with Putin calming down the dangerous situation? No. The fool is in Ukraine and Poland pouring gasoline on the fire . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
But the final, and biggest, question remains: How will Russia retaliate to Nord Stream? Will it be one step closer to possible nuclear war initiated by Joe Biden's reckless move or will the Kremlin persist with its request to have the United Nations Security Council investigate the incident? Moscow will certainly be careful to pick the right time and place, but the last act in this play surely remains to be written (jonathanturley.org).
February 15, 2023 — Russia has requested a UN Security Council meeting to be held following the report from investigative journalist Seymour Hersh that alleged the Nord Stream natural gas pipelines were bombed at the order of President Biden.
"In light of new information regarding the bombing of the Nord Stream gas pipelines, we have requested a UN Security Council meeting be held on February 22, at 3:00 pm New York time," Dmitry Polyansky, Russia's first deputy representative to the UN, wrote on Telegram on Wednesday. Also on Wednesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that foreign media outlets should look into the details of Hersh's report. "I urge you perhaps to carry out such probes because no one is banning you from conducting a journalistic investigation," Lavrov said, according to the Russian news agency TASS (news.antiwar.com).
February 20, 2023 — Hersh's account omits some important details. Ordered by Washington, Germany had canceled finalizing Nord Stream Pipeline 2 way before the undersea gas-ducts were blown up. At that time, international gas prices rose by 8%, since the world at large was thirsty for the now "freed" Russian gas. So, Russia had no shortage of demand.
On the other hand, Europe, whose economy depends up to 40% on Russian gas, was set de facto on a course of massive de-industrialization. Sort of an economic suicide? Yes, indeed, and this is because it happened with full knowledge of the EU leadership (sic).
This "leadership" almost throughout all EU countries consists of scholars from Klaus Schwab's Young Global Leaders (YGL) "Academy": "We are proud having been able to infiltrate with our YGLs governments around the world," Klaus Schwab's recent words.
German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, also a Schwab scholar, knew way in advance about the planned blow-up of the Nord Stream Pipelines.
In fact he was in Washington on an official visit to the US in early February, 2022, when President Biden made the announcement at a Press Conference that a sabotage was envisaged. That decision was formally endorsed by Chancellor Scholz: "As I've already said [Scholz], we are acting together, we are absolutely united, and we will not be taking different steps. We will do the same steps"
What happened in Washington was a: "a de facto "bilateral understanding" between US President Biden and Germany's Chancellor Scholz reached in Washington on February 7, 2022 to proceed with the act of sabotage of Nord Stream 2." And so did Ursula von der Leyen, unelected President of the EU Commission in Brussels, who is also a member of the WEF's Board of Trustees.
Scholz, von der Leyen, and most likely more EU key politicians, gave their consent to Washington's Nord Stream 1 and 2 destruction. But it was not brought to the attention of German and EU citizens (globalresearch.ca).
What possible explanation could be offered when the Biden co-conspirators, millions of Americans and Putin's Security Council all know the truth! The Intercontinental ABM Treaty was signed by President Richard Nixon in 1972 in Moscow with each participant limited to a small portion of their territory. The Russians chose to protect its capitol at Moscow while the US chose to protect an ICBM site at Grand Fork, North Dakota—what does that tell you? (globalresearch.ca).
Joe Biden's War
February 21st, 2023 — This Ukrainian woman uses foul language. Mitchell Henderson says that the young Ukrainian woman who made this video statement and posted it to social media was hunted down by the Jew Zelensky's regime enforcers and murdered—along with her family—for having made this video. The same criminal network is in control of the United States. Full story: bitchute.com
February 18, 2023 — Yet the foreign ministers of the US, Germany, and Ukraine have told the world "you can't be neutral" in NATO's proxy war with Russia, recalling President George W. Bush's infamous declaration, "You are either with us, or against us." In doing so, these Western officials are implicitly criticizing the vast majority of the countries on Earth, which are in the Global South, and which have maintained strict neutrality over the war . . . (geopoliticaleconomy.com).
On February 20 Didier Reynders, the European Commissioner for Justice, announced that a new international centre will be set up in July to investigate war crimes committed by Russian forces in Ukraine over the course of the last year. Yet when Ukrainians are tortured by their own government the EU does not give a damn (globalresearch.ca).
Europe trying to find Tanks for Ukraine
February 16, 2023 — US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin stated that in total eight countries joined the coalition for the supply of Leopard tanks to Ukraine. These are Denmark, Canada, the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Poland, Norway and Portugal. The Foreign Minister of Ukraine claimed that Kiev expects to receive up to 140 tanks of Western models during only the first deliveries from this coalition. Kiev hopes to start using new equipment on the battlefield in the spring.
However, something went wrong. According to the German Defense Minister, Kiev's Western partners are still looking for two battalions of Leopard 2 tanks for Ukraine. Kiev is likely to receive fewer of the promised vehicles . . . The training of the Ukrainian military has already began on February 15 in Lower Saxony, it is expected to be completed by the end of March at the moment of their scheduled transfer.

Comment: While the leaders of European countries are stingily collecting weapons and ammunition for the Ukrainian Army, the head of EU diplomacy, Josep Borrel, is trying his best to motivate them with loud statements about the unity of the West and Ukraine. He has already called the European Union "the army of Ukraine," intimidating his colleagues and the European population with the alleged "existential threat to European security" from Russia.
In its turn, Washington assesses the unwillingness of European countries to enter the war with Russia and pushes the Kiev regime to launch a counteroffensive on the fronts as soon as possible. Zelensky's regime is ordered to prepare for the offensive right now, while there is still some assistance from the United States and Europe, for fear that support from European countries may become even more limited soon.
However, the price of any large-scale counter-offensive operation of the Ukrainian military would be measured in thousands of soldiers' lives, and the success of such operations is still doubtful . . . (southfront.org).
Kiev loses on Donbass Battlefield, US prepares Terrorist Attacks in Russia
February 13, 2023 — In recent days, the position of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the fronts of Donbass have continued to deteriorate . . . Russian forces are advancing south, storming the village of Berkhovka and approaching the western districts of Bakhmut . . . The Russian army continues its offensive in the Kupyansk region, which has already led to successes in recent days. Russian forces have occupied several districts of Gryanikovka, and are advancing from their positions in Gorobyevka and Tavolzhanka . . .
Fighting also resumed in the Black Sea on the coast of the Odessa region. On the evening of February 11, a Russian naval drone attacked a bridge in Zatoka . . . a railroad used for the transfer of Western weapons . . . While Ukrainian soldiers are losing ground on the battlefield of Donbass, the Kiev regime and their teachers from the United States are preparing terrorist attacks on the territory of Russia.
The Russian Foreign Intelligence Service revealed that the United States "plans to transfer militants to the Russian Federation and the CIS to commit terrorist attacks against diplomats, civil servants, security forces and the military." In January, the United States "selected 60 militants for these terrorist attacks. They are being trained at the Al-Tanf base in Syria." Full story: southfront.org
Comment: The Kiev regime is plotting an armed provocation against the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic (Transnistria) amid the growing tensions in the region. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, it will be carried out by units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, including members of the Azov formation.
This false flag attack will be used as the pretext for the invasion on Transnistrian territory. For this purpose, Ukrainian saboteurs will be disguised as military personnel of the Russian Armed Forces. The Russian Defence Ministry stated that it is closely monitoring the situation and is ready to respond to any changes. Earlier it was reported that the Kiev regime already accumulated large forces that together with Romanian and Moldovan troops could be involved in a coordinated attack on Transnistria, where the Operational Group of Russian Forces are deployed . . .

Ukrainian Refugee Girl finds S. F. Schools so violent she wants to go back
February 19, 2023 — Thirteen-year-old Yana looks for a bus after walking from the Panhandle to attend the San Francisco Summer Resource Fair in Golden Gate Park. Everything Yana, a 13-year-old Ukrainian refugee, knew about public schools in the United States was what she had seen on television or in the movies, often idyllic settings where teenage conflict and angst ironed itself out by the end.
It didn't take Yana long to realize that real life in her eighth grade classes at Marina Middle School was nothing like the scenes that played out on her [television] screen. Students interrupted classes, jumped on desks, cursed at teachers. At first, Yana wondered what was going on, but then, "nothing happened." Students were not disciplined or prevented from repeat behavior.
Yana just wants to go back to her hometown in central Ukraine, back to the only school she knew before the war, even as her mom and aunt have started to research camps and other programs in San Francisco to occupy the summer months. Full story: sfchronicle.com
Comment: A year ago, San Francisco voters recalled three school board members over concerns that the district had moved in a radical, far-left direction. However, the board's "progressives" regained a majority after last year's November election. Parents have been pulling their children out of the San Francisco Unified School District in favor of private or religious schools; some families have left the city in search of better alternatives.
TGA's Actions are Truly Inexcusable
February 22, 2023 — Australia's equivalent of the FDA, the TGA, has been caught (1) having assigned causation to two childhood covid vaccine deaths and then (2) hiding those from the public. One was a 7-year-old boy, the other a 9-year-old girl.
The TGA's excuse? They "didn't want to undermine public confidence." Full story: youtube.com
Comment: As a precaution, I imported a small quantity of Ivermectin, proven safe over 70 years, universally recognized as saving millions of lives from Malaria and the fraudulent COVID-19 hoax which is not a virus but a "carrot" to entice the deceived global public to take the eugenicist's deadly "inoculation of diseases" planned by "the usual suspect" over 100 years ago and executed by treason within the governments of Australia and other captive nations serving Cain's non-Adamic and therefore unredeemable race God set at enmity with the children of Israel's rejected Messiah, Jesus Christ (Genesis 3:15). The Ivermectin was confiscated by the TGA.
Politicians' betrayals of their compatriots, who trust and vote them into office, fund their lifestyle and retirement, must be guilty of humanity's most miserable crimes. Treason is so low no word adequately describes the souls of such people devoid of ethics and moral fibre—graduates of Satan's Swiss Finishing School.
Pakistani Brothers leave Gitmo after 20 Years
February 24, 2023 — Hundreds of detainees have been incarcerated for years in the notorious American detention center in Cuba without any formal charges, and allegedly faced forms of mental and physical torture . . . at least 779 people have been detained in the facility so far, which has been illegally built on an occupied part of Cuba. Over the years, many prisoners have been transferred to third countries or repatriated, especially after global media attention was directed at the human rights violations taking place there following the publication of the Gitmo files by Wikileaks . . .

Israeli Attacks continue as Syria struggles after earthquake
February 20, 2023 — Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad met foreign diplomats and ambassadors in Damascus and called the attacks "a crime against humanity," especially at a time when the country was "racing against time to address the catastrophic consequences of the devastating earthquake."
Nearly 47,000 people have been reported dead so far from the February 6 earthquake—41,000 in Turkey and more than 5,800 in Syria, with the latter struggling to keep up the pace of rescue operations due to war, sanctions, and a lack of adequate international support . . .

I appreciate those who responded our request last week in which I asked: "This year Good Friday will be on April 7 and the Feast of Pentecost will be on May 27. I would like to know if you have any special expectations for these dates in this year. It is important for me to know your mind on these questions so will you each reply by email in ten words or less?" Most responders understood the revelation of the end-time Message from the Absolute of God's unchanging Word. We reach agreement with the mind of God when we personally "prove all things" by two or three witnesses of Scripture so today we will rehearse some essential truths.
"Faith comes by hearing, and understanding" what God's Word means, not just what it says, "for the letter kills but the Spirit gives eternal Life" (Romans 10:17; II Corinthians 3:6). "We are saved by grace through faith" and everyone in Adam's race is born saved from mother's womb, but we must put on faith by studying "the present Truth" . . . what Jesus is doing NOW as we grow from salvation to new born maturity in Him (Ephesians 2:8; II Peter 1:12; II Timothy 2:15).
The Bible is God's foreknowledge from the foundation of the world expressed in paper and ink but sealed to the time of the end. From the inauguration of Christ's Church on the Day of Pentecost AD30 until March AD1963 the Church Age saints had only PART-Word. Christ ordained and sent seven angels to deliver "the present Truth" (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7) to the saints ordained to be re-born in each Age. As a Mediator while the Book was sealed He received their revelation of the Word for their day, "winked at their ignorance of the fullness" and baptized them into the Body (Acts 17:30).
When Jesus claimed the Book of Redemption and loosed its Seven Seals, "the mystery of God was finished" (Revelation 10:7); Christ's mediation was fulfilled and Redemption was over. Today, by God's help, we have the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication. That which was in PART is done away. "When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things" (I Corinthians 13:10-13; 64-082E, COD, par. 57). Christ's end-time Bride and the 144,000 elect Israelites were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary and do not require mediation because we have the revelation of the fullness of the Word in the Seven Seals as Israel will receive by the revelation of their Seven Trumpet Mysteries.
One can only be born-again by receiving, understanding and becoming a written epistle of the Word for their dispensation. No one can be born-again under denominational ministry today as this is impersonating the Word for a day gone by. Each of the Church Age saints was born-again under the Word for their day. The few Pentecostal saints extant were born-again before Christ opened the Seven Seals in March 1963 and they will soon die.
This diagram shows when the Laodicean/Pentecostal Church Age and the previous six Ages were fulfilled and how denominations are in the breach with the sinners between Christ the Capstone and the Seals. The Holy Spirit is calling His yet unregenerate elect into the Capstone by the Message of God's Prophet William Branham (1909-1965). This diagram with its scriptures and "Perception v. Reality" reveal the supreme deity of our Lord Jesus Christ. There is "One Lord, One Faith, One water baptism in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ" and NO trinity—a worldwide pagan religion introduced by Roman Catholicism. Please study with your Bible open.
In each Age God sent an angel or Messenger to correct the errors of the previous dispensation and deliver a new Message for the succeeding Age. A prophet is a sign of impending judgment. God can do nought of great moment without first sending and vindicating a prophet with warning and a way to escape impending judgment (Genesis 18:17; Isaiah 42:9; Amos 3:7; II Peter 1:20-21). Paul, the messenger to the Ephesian Church Age was a vindicated prophet whose ministry established the pattern for the following six angels. William Branham was the angel to the seventh Church Age. He was the Covenant prophet promised in Malachi 4:5, 6b and Matthew 17:11 whose ministry was to restore the hearts of God's elect to the faith of our apostolic fathers. Brother Branham was the angel of Revelation 1:1; 3:14; 10:7 and 20:6-10 who led John throughout the Book of Revelation; John saw and heard him in the Patmos visions as Christ's end-time Bride see and hear him on video and DVD.
Enoch warned of universal destruction by the Great Flood, "He walked with God; and was not; for God took him" (Genesis 5:22), typing Christ's end time Bride. Brother Branham warned us to come out of Babylon and her harlot daughter Churches "lest we partake of her sins and receive of her plagues" (Revelation 17:5, 16; 18:4-20, 22). He "proclaimed the day of vengeance of our God" (Isaiah 61:2b) when "the heavens and earth will burn with unquenchable fire" (Malachi 4:1-3; Matthew 3:12; Hebrews 12:24-29; II Peter 3:5-7).
In sealing the New Covenant in His Blood . . . "Jesus is the mediator of a New Covenant that speaks more powerfully than Abel's covenant. See that you don't refuse Him that speaks. For if they escaped not who refused Him that spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape, if we turn away from Him that speaks from heaven: whose Voice then shook the earth: but now He has promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, "Yet once more," signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken [faith] may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: for our God is a consuming Fire".
Our other expectations are earthquakes that will sink a 1,500 x 300 – 400 mile segment of earth's crust, taking Los Angeles beneath the Pacific, and cleave the Mount of Olives (Isaiah 11:10-12; 13:6-16; 19:3; 29:6; Zechariah 14:1-5; Matthew 24:29-31; 27:50-55; Revelation 6:12-19; 8:5; 11:13, 19).
When the Sixth Seal opens at the close of the Gentile dispensation "The Lord will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD comes. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the Name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD has said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call" (Joel 2:10, 30-32; 3:15-16; Psalm 18:7; Isaiah 34:4-5; Ezekiel 32:7; Nahum 1:5; Acts 2:19-21; Revelation 6:12-17).
Most volcanoes are located in belts of weakness in earth's crust near the great mountain chains. These volcanic mountain systems are generally near ocean coasts, like Mount St. Helens pictured erupting. The Circum-Pacific system, often called the "circle or ring of fire," includes the volcanoes of the Falklands, the South American Andes, the West Indies, Central America, Mexico, Western United States, the Alaskan peninsula, and the Aleutian Islands West of the Pacific, this system includes the volcanoes of Japan, the Kurils, Kamchatka, the Philippines, and continues through the Indonesian islands to New Zealand (compare William Branham, 65-0711, Ashamed par. 53; 65-0718, Trying to do God a Service without it being God's Will, par. 22; 65-0725, Anointed Ones at the End-Time, par. 18). Imagery from earthquakes and volcanic agencies depict the terrors that attend God's coming in judgment. Neither men of high degree as the mountains, nor men of low degree as the valleys, can secure themselves or their land from God's judgments (Judges 5:5; Psalms 97:5; Isaiah 64:1-3; Zechariah 14:4-5; Revelation 6:12-17; 8:8; 11:13; 12:16; 16:18-21).
Brother Branham said, "I believe that we're at the hour of the Coming of the Lord. I believe that these earthquakes and things that we're having, this moon that they're . . . Up here at the observatory and things, they're watching this moon. It's squirting bloody-looking eruption from the inside of it. Jesus said that the moon would be turned into blood, and there'd be earthquakes all over the earth, in them days before His Coming. He claimed that the day would be setting just exactly the way it is" (64-0427, A Trial, par. 167).
Quoting from Newsletter 346 Volcanoes and Earthquakes, Redemption is Nigh (par. 58-88). In prayer, Brother Branham called this present hour, "the darkest time human history has ever written. There are missiles in the air; flying saucers, they call them. You said there'd be signs in the heaven. And in earth, great earthquakes shaking in divers places, volcanic eruptions, great waves in the sea (You said, "The sea a-roaring"), men's heart failing. Truly, the world doesn't know what to do. The first atomic bomb tells it. Perplex of times, distress between the nations. You said, "When these things come to pass, lift up your heads, your redemption is drawing nigh".
Earth began as a spark from the Sun which is the source of all matter. The entire universe of planets, stars and galaxies, even our physical beings, are formed of matter that originated from the Sun when it was vastly larger than it is today. In like fashion every Christian was in Christ crucified from the foundation of the world in God's foreknowledge (Revelation 13:8). We are His Seed, the manifested Attributes of the Word made flesh (Isaiah 53:10; Luke 8:11).
Earth's crust is so thin it is not even equivalent to the thickness of skin that covers your body, and varies from about five miles under the seas to about 20 miles under the continents where temperatures in the deepest parts may reach 1,600°F (870°C)—hot enough to melt rocks. Beneath the crust, the earth is a ball of magma—hot rock and metal that comes to the surface as volcanic lava. By studying the records of earthquakes, scientists have learned that the inside of the earth is divided into three parts: the mantle, the outer core, and the inner core.
The mantle is an 1,800 mile-thick layer of solid rock below the crust. Temperatures gradually increase down through the mantle to about 4,000°F (2,200°C) where it meets the next lower section, the outer core. The outer core is believed to be about 1,400 miles thick with temperatures ranging from about 4,000°F (2,200°C) in the uppermost parts, to about 9,000°F (5,000°C) in the deepest parts. The ball-shaped inner core that makes up the center of the earth is about 1,600 miles in diameter and temperatures are believed to reach as high as 9,000°F (5,000°C).
Over two thirds of earth's surface is covered in water which comprises two parts of the explosive gas, hydrogen, and one part of oxygen which is required for combustion. While the crust above and below the seas contains combustible minerals, like magnesium, coal, shale, pitch and oil, as well as enormous reservoirs of methane and other combustible gases.
The word volcano comes from Volcanus or 'Vulcan,' the crippled Roman god of fire who was Nimrod, the king of Babylon deified, and said to be the son of Jupiter (Baal, Apollo, etc., the Sun god) and Juno, the king and queen of the gods. However Jupiter is said not to have been his father as Vulcan was allegedly virgin-born. One of his titles was "Husband of the Mother," and he is represented as the babe at the breast of his own wife. Vulcan (Bacchus, Tammuz, Ninus, Isawra, Osiris, etc.,) married the promiscuous Venus, goddess of love and beauty (Astarte, Diana, Cybele, Minerva, Virgin Mary, the moon goddess, etc.,) who in fact represents Nimrod's wife Semiramis.
As you read this, bear in mind that massive forces just twenty miles beneath my feet—closer than the supermarket—are building towards what will soon be a catastrophic series of volcanic eruptions, according to Jesus Christ, Brother Branham, and present trends in the monitoring data. The second-last sermon Brother Branham preached before his death was in Covina, California, on December 7, 1965. He said, "You remember what I told you about two years ago, how that earthquake would come up here in Alaska? I also tell you that Hollywood and Los Angeles is sliding into the ocean. California, you're doomed, not only California; but you, world, you're doomed. Church, unless you get right with God, you're doomed. THUS SAITH THE HOLY SPIRIT" (65-1207, Leadership, par. 326). As he walked off the platform and the congregation was singing, "Till we meet at Jesus' feet," he stepped back and waved California goodbye.
They had been warned that about one tenth of the earth and a "fifteen hundred mile chunk of it, three or four hundred miles wide, will sink maybe forty miles down into that great fault out yonder one of these days, and waves will shoot plumb out to the state of Kentucky. And when it does, it'll shake the world so hard that everything on top of it will shake down".
He first prophesied the California earthquake in 1935 (65-0718, Trying to do God a Service without it being the Will of God, par. 6:22). But when will this take place? Brother Branham told his son Billy Paul, "I may not be here, but you won't be an old man until sharks will swim right where we are standing" (Pearry Green, The Acts of the Prophet, p. 119). Brother Billy Paul was born in 1935. Since he fulfilled a 'lifespan' last September 13, 2005 he is now 88 it will not be long before he is "an old man," so the end of the Gentile dispensation is imminent!
In 1937, seventeen-year-old Joe Brandt received a series of Spiritual dreams in a Fresno, California, hospital where he was recovering from brain concussion after falling from his horse. These dreams appear to agree with Brother Branham's prophecy of the sinking of Los Angeles and much of California, with tidal waves and volcanic activity devastating parts of countries bordering the "Pacific ring of fire," but also South America, Mexico—even England, Europe, the Balkans and Mediterranean lands. He observed that his dreams were set in early spring, time for the close of the Gentile dispensation, the first resurrection and manifestation of the Sons of God when Los Angeles will sink. He noted the absence of birds which had evacuated the city of Los Angeles ahead of the earthquake in response to their God-given instinct, and said that the sound made by the earth was like the cry of a woman in childbirth.
"I wondered what year it was. It certainly was not 1937. I saw a newspaper on the corner with a picture of the President. It surely wasn't Mr. Roosevelt. He was bigger, heavier, big ears. If it wasn't 1937, I wondered what year it was. . ." Please read the transcript of Joe Brandt's dreams. He described the "death" of city buildings and small houses, the rupture of highways as Los Angeles slid into the sea, and the bursting of Boulder Dam which should flood the Salton Sea.
He saw volcanoes erupting in Mexico, Colombia, and Venezuela. Mount Etna in Sicily erupted. Japan sank completely and tidal waves caused severe flooding in many parts of the world. Ham radio operators warned repeatedly, "This is California. We are going into the sea. This is California. We are going into the sea. Get to the mountains. Get to the hilltops. California, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, Utah. This is California. We are going into the sea."
What Joe Brandt saw in his dreams is like the prophecy God gave to His Prophet William Branham; that will transpire in the manifestation of the Seventh Trumpet and Sixth Seal at the close of the Gentile dispensation. According to Luke 21:25-28, "There shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming [to Israel] in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws nigh" (Daniel 7:13; Zechariah 14:4; Matthew 16:27; 24:3, 30, 39; Mark 13:24-27; Revelation 1:7).
In Newsletter 345 we reviewed Matthew 17:1-9 where Jesus took Peter, James and John up on a high mountain. They saw Him coming in power and great glory with the Bride of all Ages represented by Moses and Elijah—the resurrected Church Age saints and Christ's end-time Bride who will not die but change in the atoms. Whereas Matthew addressed his Gospel to the Hebrews, Luke wrote to us Gentiles. Here is how Brother Branham expressed Luke 21:25-28:
"Anyone knows that the world, positionally everything's setting in order for His Coming: "Earthquakes in divers places; the moon is spurting out red blood, or red volcanic all over it, covering it," as Jesus said watch for that sign in the last days; "sea a-roaring, men's hearts failing for fear, and perplexed of time, distress between the nations" (64-0618, The Presence of God Unrecognized, par. 113).
Men are certainly coming to a state of perplexity, utterly confused and without resources, not knowing which way to turn because, as George Orwell warned when he disclosed the plans of the 'Hidden Hand,' everything is topsy-turvy: morality has been jettisoned and ethics reversed so that black is now white, wrong is now right, and lies are truth, because the ends justify the means. The world is being drawn into the vortex of chaos thence Satan plans to conjure up his totalitarian new world order. Brother Branham said, "The world is going insane."
Commenting on Joel 2:31 Brother Branham said, "the moon shall be turned into blood" speaks of lunar volcanic activity! In the Spiritual realm the Sun speaks of Christ; the Moon is the Church that reflects His Light on Earth which signifies worldliness, [the Moon shines no light of its own but reflects the light of the Sun], and the seven stars in God's right hand are the angels or Church Age messengers anointed with seven portions of the Spirit to illumine the Word for their hour to the elect of their Age. In Brother Branham's vision and its fulfillment on Sunset Mountain, they aligned themselves in a pyramid or cone-shaped constellation, showing how the revelation of the Seven Seals would gather the loose ends of Scripture into the fullness of the Word to restore the apostolic faith and finish the mystery of God (Acts 3:21; Ephesians 1:10; Revelation 10:7). Therefore we must anticipate an alignment in the natural heavens when the earthquake sinks Los Angeles (Hebrews 12:25-28). Could gravitational stress that moves the ocean's tides rupture Moon's surface, triggering the volcanic activity prophesied by Joel (Isaiah 13:9-10; 34:4; Zephaniah 1:14-16; Malachi 4:1; Jesus Christ; Acts 2:20)?
"What is it, friends? We're at the end time. We're at the junction. "Lift up your head," He said, "your redemption's drawing nigh." You see what I mean? The junction time? "And it shall come to pass," saith God, "in the last days I'll pour out My Spirit; your sons and daughters shall prophesy." Prophets promised. "Your young men shall see visions, and I'll show wonders in the heavens above." Flying saucers and everything, great distress. And the earth will be shaken with divers—big earthquakes will be coming, and great volcanics will take place and great troubles and distress between the world. The nations will be trying to find peace with a knife behind their back; they'll be troubled in everywhere: all these things. And men shall grow worse and worse. "And when the enemy comes in like a flood, I'll raise up a standard against it," the Spirit of God. The junction time, the end of the road. . ." (Junction of Time, p. 20:139-141).
All nature is in travail, waiting for the manifestation of the Sons of God which will be the new wave offering of two loaves—representing the Omega Bride pending translation restored back to the faith once delivered to the Alpha Bride and the resurrected Church Age saints, signifying the coming end of corruption and decay—first in the physical renewal of God's people in glorified flesh for the Millennium. Thereafter the general resurrection and White Throne judgment when the heavens and earth will be renewed.
Here is how John described the opening of the Sixth Seal in Revelation 6:12-14, "In the vision I saw a vast earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon was blood red. Then the stars of heaven appeared to be falling to earth like untimely figs cast from a tree buffeted by mighty winds. The starry heaven disappeared as though it was rolled up like a scroll and taken away; and every mountain and island was shaken and moved out of its place" (Isaiah 13:9-14).
The Prophet said, "Brother, the earthquake burst open, and the stars shook; volcanics will come forth, and the earth will renew itself. New lava will break forth from the center of the earth, and she'll crumble all around and around and around when she spins out in yonder. . . [and] when Jesus and His Bride come back to earth, there'll be a Paradise of God. . ." (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 440:2-3).
Brother Branham said: "In Genesis when God made the Sun first, the Moon next, that Moon and Sun represents Christ and the Church. Just as the Sun comes up in its power and glory, and when it goes down, it reflects its light to the Moon in the darkness, to give light on the Earth while the Sun is gone. Jesus, when He left, He went into glory and reflected His Light back on the Church, to give the Church Light of the Gospel until He returns (Oh, my.), and then they'll get married. That'll be wonderful. It'll be one great Light of Moon and . . . "The Lamb is the Light thereof." They needed no more Sun in the City" (54-0330, Redemption by Power, par. 20; Isaiah 60:18-20; Revelation 21:23, 24; 22:5). The prophet drew the Moon round (as in his second illustration (above). Images of the total lunar eclipse that foreran the visit of Pope Paul VI to Jerusalem from 4-6 January, 1964 also showed the Moon to be round (An Exposition of the Seventh Church Age, p. 356-359). The darkness shows the love of the world and the things of world have separated the church from Christ, who is calling the wise and foolish virgins OUT from the world church system "into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation" (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4; Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19).
Isaiah 40:22, "It is the Lord who is enthroned upon the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are as grasshoppers; He stretches out the heavens as a curtain, and spreads them out as a tent to dwell in" (Job 22:14). Earth is not flat and the Moon has no light but what it reflects from the Sun, likewise the stars (Revelation 1:20), and the word "firmament" means expanse beaten or stretched out to make a spreading of clouds. Because the earth is a three dimensional sphere it is absolutely impossible for anyone to travel any great distance in a straight line by land, sea or air; one must travel in a great circle. Earth in not flat and it does not have foundations like a house; neither does it rest upon turtles "all the way down".
Earthquakes mentioned in prophecy are usually accompanied by volcanoes (Genesis 19:24; Exodus 19:18). The ocean floor is strewn with undersea volcanoes. This explains why the Pacific Ring of Fire will erupt when the earthquake sinks Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300 – 400 mile segment of earth's crust. Earthquakes activate existing volcanoes, causing islands to instantly disappear and generate seismic waves that can speed through the ocean for more than 10,000 miles at about 500 miles per hour raising waves over 150 feet on distant shores. The highest known tsunami-generated waves reached 260 feet in Japan in 1771 (Revelation 6:14; 16:20; Isaiah 2:20-21; Luke 21:25-26). I expect tsunamis generated by the sinking of that huge segment of earth on and off the West Coast of the United States will devastate the east coast of Australia within two hours.
Believers in and around the Pacific Ocean should dwell inland high above sea level because as you will learn, the earthquake starting in the Aleutian Archipelago and running down Canada and California through Mexicali and the Gulf of Mexico will be vastly more powerful than any since men were upon earth (Revelation 16:18). The Prophet said, "I think that England would be sunk someday beneath the ocean. . ." (64-0727M, Recognizing Your Day and Its Message, par. 147). "Here on the (Florida) coast, which we know will someday go beneath the ocean, and there won't be a stone left upon another. . ." [as when the Lord destroyed the Temple in AD70] (64-0415, Christ is Identified the Same, par. 214). At landfall tsunamis may be 100 ft. high and travel from Alaska, Canada and California at the speed of a Jumbo Jet as recorded recently. Nations and corporations are deep in debt; already their fiat money is not worth the paper it is printed on, and the outlook is a global depression worse than the Great Depression (61-0319, Jezebel Religion, par. 100; Amos 8:11; Revelation 6:8), so abandon Kiama before Kiama abandons you. Insurance corporations will be unable to meet their obligations. Please read your Bible and the historic evidence in this article. nl1245.htm
