Bible Believers' Newsletter 1246
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word. You are always welcome to ask questions, offer suggestions or make corrections.
The title of our main article is "God Never Changes His Ways." We see this in Matthew 27:50-53 where the close of the Hebrew dispensation and resurrection of the Old Testament saints set the pattern for the close of the Gentile dispensation, first resurrection and translation of "we which are alive and remain." This is confirmed by Hebrews 13:8. This week's news reinforces the decline of the US economy, the rise of China and the Russian Federation and the destruction of America's European vassal states in Biden's War.
It is staggering to witness the spiritual and moral blindness of the once Christian world western world. As Brother Branham prophesied, the world has gone insane.
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.
China's Explosive Growth is Pushing a Desperate Washington Closer to War
March 3, 2023 — Ukraine is the first flashpoint in a great power struggle between the United States and China. After years of shifting its industries to low-wage locations around the world, the US finds itself steadily losing market-share to a faster-growing and more resourceful China . . . China has emerged as an industrial powerhouse that sits at the very epicenter of the most populous and fastest growing region in the world . . . the US plans to engage China militarily in a desperate attempt to drain its resources, garner broader support for economic sanctions and isolate China from its regional trading partners . . .
The rise of Wall Street has led to a myriad of debt-leveraging scams that have enriched a handfullof wealthy bankers while diverting trillions in capital to unproductive activities . . . the Chinese Miracle is largely attributable to financialization and the short-sighted policies that allowed US corporations to move their industries elsewhere rather than provide incentives for them to stay in America. China's economy is overtaking the US and there is nothing short of nuclear war that can reverse that situation . . . The demonization of foreign leaders is always the first step towards war. The media led the charge against Saddam, Qaddafi, Milosevic, Putin and countless others . . . "If the United States does decide to impose tariffs on China . . . American companies operating in China, which account for more than 60 percent of China's exports to the United States, would surely be hurt the most. 'America is the one that needs to adjust.' . . . Washington has no multi trillion-dollar infrastructure plan that would serve as a substitute China's Belt and Road project . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: DARPA and other private corporations developing both viruses and vaccines, as well as working together, in a corrupt manner, with the WHO and with multinational drug companies. So clearly there is an incentive to try and pin this transnational global finance mess spilling over from the pandemic on China, and specifically on the Chinese Communist Party . . .

Douglas Macgregor: Russia couldn't be Isolated or Defeated from the West
March 4, 2323 — That's truly shocking, but it would be a serious mistake for someone just to go to the 17:50 mark and listen only to that part of this extraordinarily educational interview. Permit me to offer one small example of what one might miss by doing so. At around the 12:40 mark he talks about how truly devastating the Russian artillery assaults are. We think of artillery as a WW I or WW II weapon. I once served as a spotter during a training exercise at Ft. Bragg with an Army artillery reserve unit. To do that, I had to be close enough to the target to observe it, at least through binoculars, so that I could radio back to the people with the guns how they needed to adjust their fire to zero in on the target. Now with drones over the battlefield and satellite communication for GPS positioning, there's none of that hit-or-miss with the targeting . . . Full story: rumble.com
Comment: The people of Russia paid a horrible price for learning the truth about Judaeo-communism but it made them stronger. We, on the other hand, are embracing what they already know is deadly and we are getting weaker—physically and morally—by the day. We are on the wrong side here, as usual.
Plan to Wreck America. 'The Globalist Billionaires'
February 26, 2023 — I was reading a document that was authored by George Soros over 10 years ago in which he talks specifically about this all-out war that would ultimately come against Russia because he said this 'was the last nationalist state that rests on a foundation of orthodox christian culture with Russian identity at its core. That has to be removed. So I think that the people who are in charge in the west and the people in charge in Washington think they have successfully destroyed the identities of the European and American peoples, that we have no sense of ourselves, our borders are undefended, we present no resistance to the incoming migrants from the developing world who essentially roll over us as though we owe them a living and that our laws do not count. Thus, far I would say that is an accurate evaluation of what we've been doing. And I think that's a great victory for George Soros and the globalists, the anti-nationalists; those who want open borders what they call it an "Open Society" because you end up with nothing, an amorphous mass of people struggling to survive who are reduced to the lowest levels of subsistence . . . (Soros) even goes so far as to talk about how useful it would be if it was east Europeans whose lives were expended in this process and not west Europeans who simply won't take the casualties. This is not a minor matter. This is the kind of thinking that is so destructive and so evil, in my judgment, that that's what we're really dealing with in our own countries and I think Putin recognizes that." (Douglas Macgregor – A Huge Offensive, You Tube; 11:20 min.).
Macgregor discusses this phenom in relation to Russia which Soros sees as "the last nationalist state that rests on a foundation of Orthodox Christian culture with Russian identity at its core." But the same rule could be applied to the January 6 protestors, could it not? Isn't that the real reason the protestors were rounded up and thrown into the Washington gulag. After all, everyone knows there was no "insurrection" nor were there any "white supremacists." The protestors were locked up because they're nationalists (patriots) who are the natural enemy of the globalists. Elites don't believe that nationalists can be persuaded by propaganda. They must be eradicated through incarceration or worse . . .
The other underlying message of January 6, is that ordinary people are no longer allowed to challenge the authority of the people in power. Again, political legitimacy in the US has always been determined by elections. What January 6 indicates, is that legitimacy no longer matters. What matters is power, and the person who can have you arrested for questioning his authority, has all the power he needs . . . "Klaus Schwab, a student of the war criminal Henry Kissinger, is a mentor to power-hungry and narcissistic sociopaths. The WEF "Great Reset" is designed to turn the world into an impoverished social concentration camp, where destitute serfs "own nothing" and this, in true Orwellian fashion, will set them free . . .

Kiev Regime Flooding Black Markets with NATO-sourced Weapons
March 2, 2023 — It has been at least a year and a half since the political west drastically intensified its weapons shipments to the Kiev regime. Ever since, the black markets have been flooded with Western-made arms and munitions, some of which have even started running out from NATO stocks . . . the Neo-Nazi junta troops' role is crucial in what can only be described as the world's largest arms smuggling scheme . . . Corruption is endemic in Ukraine, but ever since the NATO-backed Neo-Nazi coup in 2014, it has worsened dramatically as the political West started showering the already crooked politicians and bureaucrats with tens of billions of dollars . . .

The UN Discusses Darkening the Skies to Combat Climate Change
March 1, 2023 — A new report from the UN was just published proposes and discusses ways to cool our planet by restricting sunlight and darkening our skies. The UN is worried about climate change. As the efforts to reduce CO2 emissions are faltering, the UN is looking for more ways to cool the Earth . . . dimmed sunlight inhibiting CO2 uptake, and lowering food production, does not bother the proponents of Solar Radiation Modification. And how would solar panels run without the sun? . . . The usual stakeholders, such as Bill Gates, are preparing the right conditions for this to happen . . . Full story: igorchudov.substack.com

The Scofield Scam of 'Christian Zionism'
So then, how exactly did so many millions of Evangelical Christians get sucked into this insane Zionist CULT? Answer: It was the dirty work of a dirty con man named Cyrus Scofield (amplified by latter day Paid Pastors)—for whom the "Scofield Study Bible" is named. Let's meet this greasy son-of-a-bitch whose role in shaping history turned out to be immense . . . Cyrus Scofield (like Marx, Darwin, Einstein, Kalergi et al.) was a hired hack of the Rothschild crime syndicate. Cyrus Scofield was a self-described theologian and minister whose annotated Bible promoted "end times" futurism among fundamentalist Christians. One of the core beliefs of this invented doctrine is that Israel has to be restored before Jesus can come to "rapture" his followers up to heaven. Full story: realhistorychan.com
Comment: Jewish criminals like Wall Street Lawyer Samuel Untermeyer (who bribed President Woodrow Wilson; helped draft the Federal Reserve Banking law in 1910; perjured himself before a Senate investigation; He declared war on Germany and an economic boycott of German goods in 1933 stating they would starve to death)—along with other wealthy and influential Zionists, Untermeyer directed and financed Cyrus I. Scofield to inject Zionist ideas into American Protestantism.
Gazan Children's Artwork traumatizes 'UK Lawyers for Israel'
February 25, 2023 — The UKLFI can't handle Gaza children's artwork removed from London hospital. London hospital removes Gaza children's artwork after a complaint by 'UK Lawyers for Israel'; on behalf of Jewish patients who felt 'vulnerable'; and 'victimized' by the Palestinian artwork. The fact that adults could find a piece of artwork done by children intimidating, that an outfit such as the UKLFI could move to issue a complaint, and finally for the hospital to actually remove the artwork, is utterly bizarre.
Meanwhile, the majority took to Twitter to express their outrage and were questioning "What is wrong with art created by children from Gaza? How can the artwork of innocent kids be a threat to anyone?" One Twitter account shared images of the hospital display and stated, "If you feel vulnerable and victimized having to look at a display of artwork by children from Gaza, imagine how those children feel with an Israel soldier pointing a gun at them."

Israeli Settlers rampage as Killings Continue
February 27, 2023 — An aerial view of a yard where cars were torched overnight, in the Palestinian town of Huwara near Nablus in the occupied West Bank. Some denounced the rampage, other members of the ruling coalition—seen as perhaps the most right-wing in Israel's history—appeared to praise Sunday's violence as a deterence against Palestinian attacks.
"I look favorably on what happened in Hawara," Tzvika Foghel, a lawmaker from the ultranationalist Jewish Power party, said in an interview with IDF radio. "The result is deterrnce, the army should do it and not the civilians. I want to see every place where terrorists come out burning (ifamericansknew.org). Full story: israelpalestinenews.org
Comment: Israel's policy of settling its civilians in occupied Palestinian territory and displacing the local population contravenes fundamental rules of international humanitarian law. Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: "The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies." It also prohibits the "individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory" amnesty.org. Don't miss what's happening (twitter.com).
130 Military Contractors Manufactured & Distributed Vaccine (sic)
February 23, 2023 — RFK Jr. says, "There were 138 companies that were involved in manufacturing and distributing the vaccine. They're all military contractors. The Pentagon and the National Security Agency ran the entire pandemic response.
"Pfizer and Moderna don't really own those vaccines. They slap their labels on 'em but it was a Pentagon project."
This confirms the work of Sasha Latypova and Katherine Watt, who showed how the Pentagon's Operation Warp Speed was able to completely circumvent Federal Health Regulations by using what's called in bureaucratic-speak, an "Other Transaction Authority," which they used to contract with the bioweapons manufacturers to literally produce the bioweapon.
• This was discovered in Pfizer's motion to dismiss Brook Jackson's case, when they attached another contract called an Other Transaction Authority—OTA contract—saying in effect, they had no obligation to conduct valid clinical trials because the only goods and services they were providing to the US government, according to this contract are a "large scale manufacturing demonstration for a prototype".Full story: forbiddenknowledgetv.net
• Under the terms of the OTA, Pfizer may have had no obligation to conduct a valid clinical trial or to be in compliance with any of the regulations that govern clinical trials. In other words, OTA did for the financial contracting side, what EUA did to the drug regulation side.
• In short, the fake "clinical trials" were a PSYOP to convince people to get the injections.
Comment: They also made hundreds of millionaires who sold their soul to the Devil.
Environmental Modification Techniques (ENMOD) & Turkey-Syria Earthquake
February 28, 2023 — The latest reports point to a death toll in Turkey and Syria well in excess of 50,000, more than half a million injured, tens of thousands missing. The first and second earthquakes on February 6, 2023 in Kahramanmaras province in Southern Turkey were respectively of the magnitude of 7.6 and 7.8 (Richter scale). A third earthquake of a magnitude of 6.3 was recorded on February 20th.
In Turkey, some 530,000 people have been evacuated from the disaster area. Ankara confirms that "173,000 buildings have so far been recorded as collapsed or severely damaged, with more than 1.9 million people taking refuge in temporary shelters or hotels and public facilities."
In Syria, the earthquakes have largely affected the cities of Aleppo, Lattakia and Hama which are within proximity of Syria's Northwestern border with Turkey. The latest announced death toll in Syria was 5,914, with 8.8 million affected. President Bachar Al Assad underscored that US-NATO has been at war with Syria for almost 12 years, while emphasizing that "Syria has not been an earthquake for about two and a half centuries." Turkey, prior to the February 6, 2023 earthquake, there was no recent evidence or historical record of "major earthquake" activity in Southern Anatolia. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: It is worth noting that the maps presented on all television channels showed that there was not an epicentre, but thousands of earthquakes. And I am the only politician in the world who had the courage to show that President Erdogan was punished for his courage, dignity and honour and for his closeness to the Russian Federation, in fact a position of neutrality and mediation for peace. In addition, the earthquake purpose was meant to remove people's attention from Ukraine, where already representatives of many countries have begun to vociferate against the despotism and orders given by President Zelensky, as if he is leading the world and someone had the obligation to send weapons and participate in his war where he sacrificed his own people and destroyed his entire country.

God Never Changes His Ways
One Good Friday an earthquake of unprecedented magnitude since man was on earth will swallow a 1,500 X 300 – 400 mile segment of earth's crust, sinking Los Angeles beneath the ocean (Isaiah 13:17-19; 29:6; Revelation 6:12; 16:18-19) as the Seventh Trump sounds the close of the Gentile dispensation repeating the pattern that ended the Hebrew dispensation that Day on Calvary, Nisan 14, AD30 (Matthew 27:51-54; 28:2; Hebrews 13:8). God never changes His ways. On Nisan 16, the first day of Pentecost the dead in Christ will begin to raise, Church Age by Church Age. Brother Branham's tent vision will be pitched and completed over fifty days as "we which are alive and remain are caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and ever be with the Lord."
"Jesus was hanging on the cross at three o'clock on Good Friday afternoon (Matthew 27:45). "Now from the sixth hour (1200 hrs) there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour (1500 hrs). Now notice just exactly what He did back here now in this [He is about to do again]".
Revelation 6:12-17, "I beheld when He had opened the Sixth Seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; and the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casts her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together [as earth slips on its axis]; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, [Rothschild, Rockefeller, Gates, Soros, Schwab, Obama, Clinton, Biden, Zelensky] and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; and said to the mountains and rocks, fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: for the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand"? (63-0323, The Sixth Seal, par. 312 – 317).
This is not World War III! John is describing the vision he is seeing as an earthquake sinks a 1,500 x 300 – 400 mile segment of earth's crust, moving earth on its axis, sinking and raising mountains and islands, causing tsunamis, taking Los Angeles to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean and making Arizona the US west coast. This will be the simultaneous manifestation of the Sixth Seal and the Seventh Trumpet. One of our brothers thought the earthquake would not be too serious and that volcanic eruptions on the Moon would be a so-called 'red moon.' Brethren, we must study the Message of God's Prophet, and identify its reality in God's unchanging Word.
This brief movie produced by one of the saints simulates Joe Brandt's 1937 spiritual dreams, the prophecies of Brother Branham, Old Testament prophets and our Lord Jesus Christ Jesus who all foretold the earthquake that will sink Los Angeles and send tidal waves that will sweep the oceans, killing scores of millions. Here is an account of Joe Brandt's dreams.
Another type and prophecy is Exodus 19:16-25, "It came to pass on the third day in the morning [between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m.] that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon Mount Sinai, and the Voice of the trumpet [Christ the Archangel] exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled." God said, "Assemble them together, I'll let them know what it is. I'll show them what it is." Read! Listen! And the Voice of the trumpet got louder and louder until it shook the earth. You see what judgment is? I don't want that. Give me mercy! (61-0108, Revelation Chapter Four, Part III, par. 106-116).
In 712BC Isaiah 13:9 – 24:23 prophesied the whole plan of divine providence, and these near future events: "Behold, the Day of the LORD comes, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and He shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and their constellations shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth [as it was in Egypt], and the moon will be unable to shine her [reflected] sunlight. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. [In vain will one try to buy his life from them with a ransom of silver or gold (verse 17), when Muslims invade Israel after the earthquake that cleaves the Mount demolishes the Dome of the Rock]. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of His fierce anger. And it shall be that like a hunted gazelle and as sheep with none to gather them: men will each turn to their own people and everyone flee into his own land" (62-0323, The Sixth Seal, par. 317 – 333).
Isaiah was prophesying the cleansing of the Promised Land in the tribulation of Daniel's Seventieth Week and the abandonment of modern Israel by non-Semitic imposters so that the children of Jacob can repatriate the land of their Covenant without "fear of the Jews." He goes on to describe the casting down of Satan, the well-earned invasion of perfidious USA, the imminent utter overthrow of the modern Israel state; redemption of 144,000 elect Israelites (not one of them a Jew), and the destruction of Vatican City State.
Matthew 27:50-53 is our type: "when Jesus had cried again with a loud voice He yielded up the ghost. And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; earth quaked, the rocks rent and the graves were opened; many bodies of the saints which slept arose and came out of the graves after His resurrection [and cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary on Sunday, Nisan 16 AD30] and went into the holy city and appeared unto many [over forty days]."
Every 2,000 years there is a junction of time. First was the Great Flood—a type of Justification by grace through faith and water baptism in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin. Second, Jesus was crucified and blood—His only cleansing healing stream—fell upon the earth when the soldier pierced His side, typing Sanctification. Having waited almost 2,000 years, the New Covenant saints foresee a junction of time for our Home-going in the First Resurrection and Translation fifty days after the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trump manifest. Then the One Creator, our Lord Jesus Christ, God Almighty (Isaiah 9:6-7; 41:4; 44:24; Matthew 1:20-25; 28:17-20; Colossians 1:15-20; Revelation 1:4, 8; 4:8; 6:15-16; 11:17; 15:3; 16:7; 19:6; 17; 21:6-7, 22; 22:13-16;) will turn to remove the blindness of 144,000 elect Israelites who will repatriate the Land of the Covenant for their redemption through the ministry of Moses and Elijah (Isaiah 11:10-11; 18:3; Zechariah 4:12-14; Matthew 24:31; Revelation 15:3-12) to accomplish the sixfold purpose of Daniel's Seventieth Week and "anoint the Most Holy"—not the Ark of the Old Covenant which typed or represented Jesus Christ. For "in those days says the LORD, they shall say no more, The Ark of the Covenant of the LORD: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither will they visit it; neither shall that be done anymore. At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD; and all nations shall be gathered unto it, to the Name of the LORD, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk anymore after the imagination of their evil heart. In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers" (Jeremiah 3:16-18).
The 144,000 elect Israelites will be born-again then martyred according to their oath under the principle of the Law (Exodus 21; Leviticus 24:17, 21; Deuteronomy 19:21; Matthew 27:24-25; John 11:14-54). This will complete 6,000 years of man's day. The Millennium will make the 7,000th year, a type of the sabbath when God rested (Genesis 2:2). Of course he who is born-again has entered the eternal sabbath of God's rest (Joshua 22:4; Psalm 95:7, 9-11; John 3:36; Hebrews 3 & 4; Revelation 14:13). As friends of the Bridegroom (John 3:29) the Old Testament saints will attend the Wedding Supper of Christ and His Bride, Israel's King and Queen. The 144,000 elect Israelite martyrs are accounted in the First Resurrection and will participate in the Millennium.
Clearly the usual suspects and seed of the Serpent will not accomplish a new world of their own although they are "following Death and Hell incarnate in the papal rider of the pale horse, and power will be given to them over the fourth Gentile World Empire of Rome, to kill with sword, and with famine, and with death, and with brutal beastly men" (Jeremiah 15:2; Ezekiel 5:12, 17; 14:21; Daniel 9:27; Amos 8:11; Revelation 6:8; 17: 17:11-18).
Brother Branham said, "Now, Saturday is the sabbath day according to the cycle of the week. Now, we don't know it's been changed, and we got so many changes you'd never know just which was. See? Because we . . . Now, the Jews claim that we're just about . . . It's right now about 1970 something according to their cycle, their calendar. The Roman calendar takes it 1953. And they have another calendar that takes it somewhere else. But that's what makes it proof of Christianity; it's all based back to the birth of Christ" (53-0729, COD, par. 128-129).
The Prophet also said, "When, the wise men in Babylon saw down towards Palestine, this three stars in a constellation . . . Do you know that's proven, these last couple weeks, to be the truth? . . . It's in . . . a Sunday paper, December 9, 1962 . . . This year coming up is 1970. Seven years out of date" by dug up rocks, and prove that it's wrong. It's later than you think" (62-1230E, Is this the Sign of the End, Sir? par. 100).
From the crucifixion of Jesus Christ in AD30 + 1970 = 2,000 yrs +23 = AD2023 to the resurrection of the Church Age saints and our body change and translation at the Pentecostal Jubilee + 7 for Daniel's seventieth week, "the time of Jacob's trouble" (Jeremiah 30:7) and Israel's new birth at their Tishri 10 Jubilee = AD2030, Armageddon and the consummation, then the Millennium.
As Brother Branham explained, "The night was not divided in hours in the Bible time, it was divided in watches. There was three watches. Now, the first watch started at from nine until twelve. The second watch started from twelve to three. And the third watch of the night was counted from three to six. Now we got three, three three's [three watches each of three hours], which is a nine, imperfect number. Then we come back to the seven for the rapture, which will take place, I believe, between six and nine o'clock, some morning, "For the Trumpet of the Lord shall sound" (65-11204, The Rapture, par. 127; I Corinthians 15:51-58; I Thessalonians 4:16).
Our diagram in Israel time shows, by "teaching for doctrines the commandments of men" the blood descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob that constitute Israel worshipped Jesus—their sole God and near KINSMAN Redeemer—in vain and sank to such depraved depths of apostasy that they murdered their promised Messiah by the most violent, inhuman yet lawful means of the day. That Good Friday God ceased dealing with Israel as a nation; it was already hybridized having assimilated Edom, "the people against whom the Lord has indignation forever" (Malachi 1:4; Genesis 9:15). Israel's unwanted God, Jesus Christ called Jerusalem's Temple the "Jew's house" saying "Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I assure you, you shall not see Me henceforth, till you say, Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord . . . I assure you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down" (Matthew 23:38 – 24:2).
In 606BC Daniel 9:23-27 explained the sixfold purpose of Gabriel's instructions and prophesied: "after Jesus your Messiah is cut off [in AD30], the Imperial prince or Roman Emperor will come and destroy the city and the Temple; and the end thereof shall be with a military overthrow, and desolations are determined to the end of the war against Israel."
Because of Israel's unbelief Jesus prophesied these Roman wars as seven Trumpet Judgments (Revelation 8:2, 6 – 19:7). In Luke 21:1-24 Jesus called the Gentile dispensation "the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days for there shall be great distress in the land of Israel, and wrath upon this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled" one Good Friday.
In Romans 11:25-28 Paul prophesied to the Church, "I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, lest you be wise in your own conceits; that a partial blindness and hardness of heart has happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles comes in [one Good Friday]. Thus all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, The Deliverer shall come from Zion. He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob: for this is My Covenant with them, when I shall take away their unbelief. From the standpoint of the Gospel, they are enemies for your sake: but from God's standpoint they are beloved for the sake of the patriarchal fathers".
Daniel 9:27, "And the prince of Papal Rome shall confirm the covenant to many for one week [spiritual miscegenation]: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and grain offering to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he will be a desolater until the consummation and that decided shall be poured upon the desolate".
Our diagram shows in Roman time how Adamites in general slid into the midnight hour when "lukewarm Laodiceans became materially wealthy and in need of nothing yet know not that spiritually they are wretched and pitiable, bankrupt of the faith and blind to the present Truth of God's revealed Word, having rejected His vindicated Prophet (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 3:14; 10:7). They are naked of the Blood, having crucified to themselves the Son of God afresh and put Him to an open shame, thus Jesus has vomited them out of His mouth" (Hebrews 6:6; Revelation 3:15-18).
"Then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened" (Matthew 24:21-22). The "shortening of days" commenced when Christ claimed the Book of Redemption and loosed the Seven Seals on March 8, 1963, placing judgment upon the beast of the sea which is the Papal Roman Empire (Revelation 17:15). He also placed judgment on the United States of America, "the beast from the earth," the image of Imperial Rome (Revelation 10:2; 13:11-18). After the midst of "the time of Jacob's trouble" (Jeremiah 30:7) NATO's Black Nobility will abandon the great harlot and burn Vatican City State with nuclear fire (Revelation 17:16-18; 18:1-20, 24).
In the vision of Revelation 10:1-7 John saw "Christ descend from Heaven clothed with a Cloud: the rainbow was upon His head, and His face was like the Sun, and His feet as pillars of fire. And He had the little Book of Redemption open in His left hand . . . [He was no longer the Lamb but the Lion of the Tribe of Judah] and He cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars: and when He had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, John was about to write: and he heard a Voice from heaven saying to him, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not."
I would like you to take your time and carefully study Newsletter 752: the Book of Redemption is "little" because "many are called but few are chosen" (Matthew 22:14; John 15:16), so we must "study to show ourselves approved of God as workmen that need not to be ashamed: rightly dividing the Word of Truth." Unbeknownst to most, the Pillar of Cloud manifest twice. Its appearance on February 28, 1963 was a public sign for the world and the Pentecostal or Laodicean Church Age that had rejected their angel and God's Message (Genesis 1:14; Psalm 19:1-16; 50:6; 96:6; Amos 3:7; Romans 1:19-20; 10:18; II Timothy 3:1 - 4:3; Revelation 3:17-20). Its reappearance on March 8, 1963 was seen only by Brother Branham who was caught up into the Cloud with the theophanies of the angels to the previous six Church Ages, each of whom had been anointed by a portion of the Holy Spirit to reveal the Message to the elect of their dispensation, however the fullness of the Spirit was required to reveal the fullness of the Word to Christ's end-time Bride at His unseen second or (Gk.) 'parousia' coming (64-0112, Shalom, par. 64-66).
"And the angel which I saw place judgment upon the beast of the sea and upon the beast of the earth lifted up His right hand to heaven (Revelation 5:1), and swore by Him that lives forever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be (Gk.) 'chronos' time no longer" for His elect after the brief silence in heaven is fulfilled (Revelation 8:1)]. "But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, William Branham, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets".
Matthew and Mark both incorporate Christ's scourging as part of the crucifixion that occurred between the third and sixth hour, or from 9.00 a.m. to noon, the time of the Temple morning sacrifice.
Mark 15:27-32, "And with Him they crucify two thieves; the one on His right hand, and the other on His left. And the scripture was fulfilled, which said, And He was numbered with the transgressors" (Isaiah 53:12). "And they that passed by railed on Him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, You that destroys the Temple, and builds it in three days, Save yourself, and come down from the cross. Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; Himself He cannot save. Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with Him reviled him".
Luke 23:33-43, "Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted His raiment, and cast lots . . . And the soldiers also mocked Him, coming to Him, and offering Him vinegar, and saying, If You are the king of the Jews, save Yourself . . . And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on Him, saying, If You are Christ, save Yourself and us. And Jesus said to [the penitent thief], Verily I say to you, today you will be with Me in paradise".
John 19:26-27, "Jesus . . . said to His mother, Woman, behold your son! Then He said to John, Behold your mother"!
Matthew 27:45, "Now from the sixth hour (midday) when the sun stood highest and the day was brightest, which was the middle point of His crucifixion-torments; in some way unknown to mankind there was darkness over all the northern hemisphere unto the ninth hour" (3.00.p.m.). The divisions of the day are reckoned according to the hours of prayer, third, sixth and ninth. Luke 23:45 states that "the sun was darkened" thus the whole planet was darkened. Having recognized Jesus' innocence God rejected the regular evening sacrifice. Note the full Moon has no light, it reflects the Sun's light that returned once the true and accepted sacrifice was fulfilled (Matthew 27:45-50; Mark 15:33-37; Luke 23:44-46).
During the three hours in which the darkness continued, Jesus was in agony, wrestling with the powers of darkness, and suffering His Father's displeasure against the sin of man, for which He was now making His soul an offering. Never were there three such hours since the day God created man upon the earth, never such a dark and awful scene. About the ninth hour Jesus uttered a complaint from Psalm 22:1 in a loud voice, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? That is to say, My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?" (Matthew 27:46).
Jesus' crucifixion enabled the continuation of the creation of God in His Family, Jesus' New Testament Bride born of the spoken Word for the hour. Like the first and the last Adam, God's family is born by Spiritual relationship with Christ. "It was not God's perfect will for children to be born on the earth through sex. No sir, God created man out of the dust of the earth, breathed the breath of life into him, and he become a living soul. He took from that man a helpmate, and made a wife to him. That was God's first and original will. But when sin come in and did the thing that it did, then He permitted man to marry a wife, legally, and have children by her. "Multiply and replenish the earth, then, if that's the way you're going to do it." But, you see, it never was His perfect will" (65-0418E, Does God ever change His Mind about His Word? par. 93).
The first hour in Hebrew reckoning was sunrise; in Roman reckoning used by John, you and me it was midnight. The sabbath commenced at 6:00 p.m. on Friday our time, and ended at 6:00 p.m. Saturday. So Israel's high priest, the rabbis and serious believers were anxious to see that Jesus was buried before the sabbath commenced on Friday evening. Deuteronomy 21:22-23 states, "If a man has committed a sin worthy of death, and is to be put to death by hanging on a tree: His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but you shall bury him that day; (for he that is hanged is accursed of God;) that your land be not defiled, which the LORD your God gave you for an inheritance".
"When Jesus died on the cross, the heavens give witness. There is the material. That is the thing. If you'll notice all creation give witness to it. Right in the middle of the day, when God had prophesied before when the sabbath would cease, said it'll be a time when the sun goes down in the middle of the day. [That is, between three and four o'clock in the afternoon, Jesus died]. And from the sixth until the ninth hour it was darkness. What was it?"
"Darkness is absolutely total darkness, so dark like it was in Egypt till it could be felt, not a ray of light. And the sun gave witness . . . There's the One, that's the material that God's going to build a church out of. ["Jesus the Light of the world" (Matthew 5:14; John 8:12; Revelation 21:22-23)]. The moon and stars gave witness. When He died the heavens gave witness; the earth belched up; the rocks rent out; the earth give witness. And the saints that slept in the dust of the earth, rose, gave witness" (57-0623, Believe from the Heart, par. E-33).
Mark 15:33-38, "And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour (midday to 3:00 p.m.; 65-11204, The Rapture, par. 127). Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me? And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias. And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elias will come to take him down. And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom". He was the real Sacrifice they had waited on, the propitiation of their sins. They had offered the Sacrifice, the Lamb. And when He died and yielded up the ghost, He screamed with a loud voice, and the Old Testament saints awoke (Matthew 27:50-53). They entered into His Presence on the third day; paradise was done away and they ascended up and entered in with His resurrection.
"Watch the shout and the voice over here when John the Baptist baptized Jesus (Matthew 3:16-17), the same thing at His [second] Coming. See? ["At midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the Bridegroom! Come out to meet Him," (Matthew 25:6). This "loud midnight Voice" was Brother Branham's Message fulfilling the audible prophetic Voice from the Shekinah manifest over the Ohio River where he was baptizing converts after a revival in 1933. There It said, "As John the Baptist foreran Christ's first Coming, your Message (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7) will forerun His second Coming]." The "midnight cry" in 1963 was the Prophet's second commission—the "SHOUT" of I Thessalonians 4:16a calling Christ's end-time Bride to come out from the world church system (Revelation 18:1-4) by the revelation of the Seven Seals "which finished the mystery of God" which is the supreme deity our Lord Jesus Christ. It will be calling for the last elect until a certain Good Friday. The shout aroused us from our denominational slumber, the system is dead; the creative Voice of the Archangel is calling His Bride from the dust or changing our atoms ever though we have not fallen asleep. We know Him now as much as our limiting senses can allow, but one day it will be face-to-face. Partial realization will be made perfect realization: the revelations are becoming clearer as the pieces of "God's Jigsaw Puzzle" form the picture. One day we will put on immortality, swallowed up in Life. Then we will realize realization. nl1246.htm
