Bible Believers' Newsletter 1249
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
May our Lord Jesus Christ bless each of our Subscribers and every one of our readers. Once again we are blessed to extend the hand of welcome to our new subscribers and encourage you to send a copy of our Newsletter to whoever you feel may be curious to understand "the present Truth" . . . what Jesus is doing NOW. Everyone is welcome to make full use of the Christian resources of our Church Website and requested to report any typographical or doctrinal errors that require correction. Love is corrective, always.
We have so many more news items than usual because we approach the close of the Gentile dispensation for "our adversary the Devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour," knowing that one Good Friday he will be cast down to earth, and his demons with him (I Peter 5:8; Revelation 12:7-9). Israel's blindness has come upon the leaders of our once Christian nations. Kudos to President Yoweri Museveni and the Parliament of Uganda for honouring God's Word and legislating against homosexuality. To their disgrace, parliamentarians in the apostate West march in proud support.
Our first two news items are very encouraging for Christ's end-time Bride and the video is a lasting blessing. The remainder report how corrupt Western nations are blindly self-destructing as righteous President Putin's Russia along with China hold the high moral ground.
Our main article, "The God of Moses" settles us heart and mind as to our stand in God's unchanging Word understood by the Rock of personal revelation from Above not simply by learning. It tells the time and date when the Seventh Trumpet and Sixth Seal will manifest, and describes the magnitude of the earthquake that will shake heaven as earth tumbles on its axis tossing us from day to night so that the Sun does not appear and the stars seem to fall (Hebrews 12:25-29). No one will be able to stand.
According to science.org (October 12, 2014) "The moon, thought to be cold and dead, is still alive and kicking—barely. Scientists have found evidence for dozens of burps of volcanic activity, all within the past 100 million years—a mere blip on the geologic timescale. And they think that future eruptions are likely—although probably not within a human lifetime." We beg to differ with the scientists.
Commenting on Joel 2:31 Brother Branham said, "The moon shall be turned into blood" speaks of lunar volcanic activity! And in Revelation 6:12-14, "John 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).
Be prepared, and love one another.

Israeli Politicians Move to ban the Gospel in the Holy Land
March 22, 2023 — Days before Easter two members of Israel's Knesset have introduced a bill that would outlaw telling people about Jesus in the Jewish state . . . one year imprisonment with an adult, two years with someone under 18. This bill would apply to people having spiritual conversations with Israelis of any religion. The authors of the legislation Moshe Gafni and Yaakov Asher are ultra-Orthodox Jewish members of Knesset. Mr. Gafni serves as chair of the Knesset's powerful Finance Committee, a member of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee and the Joint Committee for the Defense Budget. Mr. Asher is chair of the Internal Affairs and Environment Protection Committee. The bill would criminalize not only personal conversation about Jesus with another individual, but also soliciting a person—directly, digitally, by mail or online—in order to convert his religion.

Putin stuns Zelensky, lands in Ukraine; drives in Russia-held Mariupol, chats with people
March 20, 2023 — Russian President Vladimir Putin made an unannounced visit to the Ukrainian city of Mariupol, the southern Ukrainian port city under Russian occupation since last May. Putin went to Mariupol after visiting Crimea for the Ninth Annexation Ceremony. According to TASS, Putin flew to Mariupol by helicopter, drove a car and spoke with residents. Putin's move is set to anger Ukraine's [multimillionaire] president and the [corrupt] West. Putin's Crimea and Mariupol visits came less than 48 hours after a [criminal] International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant against the Russian president over war crime allegations in Ukraine.

Gen. Douglas Macgregor: 'I'd be surprised to see Biden in the White House in 90 days . . .'
March 19, 2023 — Belligerant America is self-destructing. Lying USA is on the back foot having destroyed the Ukraine (i.e. Khazaria) in Joe Biden's war, the EU economy, shipped its productive economy to China and destroyed Nord Stream pipelines 1 and 2 to bring Europe to its knees. Los Angeles and the end of the Christian dispensation are just two weeks away. Full story: General Macgregor and rumble.com start at 9:34mi.
Comment: The US perfected the art of the coup as witnessed in Khazaria in 2014. It will continue deceiving other nations because it is ruled by a people Jesus called liars at enmity with Adam's race (Genesis 3:15; John 8:44). Moses commanded that they be killed when found in the Promised Land (Genesis 4:14; Numbers 31:17; Deuteronomy 7:1-3; 20:16-17). The US will be eliminated before Armageddon. NATO nations will ally with Russia in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week because the US has destroyed the EU economies because of ENMOD activity in Turkey (Pakistan and China), and they will 'nuke' Vatican City.
186 More Banks 'at Risk of Failure' that could push us into the Next Great Depression
March 19, 2023 — On the heels of Silicon Valley Bank's collapse earlier this month, 186 more banks are at risk of failure even if only half of their depositors decide to withdraw their funds . . . because the Federal Reserve's aggressive interest rate hikes to tamp down inflation have eroded the value of bank assets such as government bonds and mortgage-backed securities. "The recent declines in bank asset values very significantly increased the fragility of the US banking system to uninsured depositor runs," economists wrote in a recent paper published on the Social Science Research Network. Needless to say, these banks realize that they are in jeopardy, and a coalition of mid-size banks is literally begging federal regulators to cover all uninsured deposits for at least the next two years . . . At this point, conditions are so dire that Warren Buffett is getting personally involved . . . After announcing a plan to slash nearly 7,000 jobs, Disney is reportedly instructing managers to propose budget cuts and put together lists of employees to be laid off in the coming weeks . . . All over America, large companies are letting workers go. Full story: theeconomiccollapseblog.com
Comment: What will not be announced until after the fact is that the God of Moses will "let (Los Angeles and much of California) go" beneath the ocean followed by banks worldwide and a depression that will be WORSE than the Great Depression (61-0319, Jezebel Religion, par. 100; Amos 8:11).
Russia's Economy is Booming because of Sanctions
March 20, 2023 — Economic sovereignty, is one of the main reasons for Russia's economic growth during the time of the worst sanctions any country has undergone by the US and its puppet Europe . . . self-destructive for Europe . . . the European people . . . have been betrayed by their so-called leaders—most, if not all of them, scholars of Klaus Schwab's school for YGL. By no means have they ever been "infiltrated" to serve the interests of the people, who supposedly "elected" them . . . precisely what the powers of those funding and directing the WEF are banking on . . . helped by decades of social engineering, highly professional mind manipulation, by the bought western main stream media . . .
The combined BRICS-plus Iran output is almost half of global production. That of China (18%), India (13%), and Russia (12%), account for a combined 43% of total world production. Almost half of one of the world's key food staples is produced by just three BRICS countries . . . set out in the WEF's Great Reset and UN Agenda 2030—destruction of the . . . western economic system, that it may be rebuilt according to WEF's concept of a One World Order which also includes massive population reduction . . . precipitated over coming years through the poisonous injections coerced upon the globe's 8 billion people . . . An estimated 70% were injected . . . Russia and China become key targets for take-over, as the new planned OWO will need their energy and food—aside from a myriad of other life-supporting natural resources Russia and China possess . . .
The warmonger hegemon is gradually but ever more visibly fading. A new concept of peaceful multi-polarity is taking over . . . destructive nuclear war . . . may not be in the interest of those intending to run the world—there are a few other weapons of mass destruction:
So far, hardly anybody has made the link of these banking failures—and potentially more to come—to the World Economic Forum's (WEF) prophesized Great Reset . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
- Artificial weather and climate modification which also includes triggering of deadly earthquakes . . . See this, this and this.
- The pharma-assault on the world, as we have witnessed with the covid-crime . . . and this.
- The global financial meltdown—which is largely and deliberately a derivative-based "financial weapon of mass destruction." For details of the looming Financial Tsunami, see this and this.

Russia's Politics of writing off African Debts, Putin's Strategy of Economic Cooperation
March 21, 2023 — During the International Parliamentary Russia-Africa Conference in Moscow March 19-20, Russian President Vladimir Putin, in a speech at the plenary session, reminded African parliamentarians that the partnership between Russia and African countries has gained additional momentum and is reaching a whole new level . . . "Our African agenda is positive and future-oriented. We do not ally with someone against someone else; and we strongly oppose any geo-political 'games' involving Africa," he said during that interview and categorically referred to the debts write-off to Africa. "Let me point out that in the post-Soviet period, at the end of the 20th century, Russia cancelled $20 billion of African countries' debts to the Soviet Union. This was both an act of generosity and a pragmatic step, because many of the African states were unable to service those debts. We, therefore, decided that it would be best for everyone to start our cooperation from scratch," said President Putin. Full story: globalresearch.ca
NATO's 1999 Aggression against Yugoslavia: Global Turning Point
March 20, 2023 — The NATO aggression against Serbia and Montenegro (FRY) in 1999 was the turning point in the transformation of the North Atlantic Alliance from a defensive to an aggressive one, of Europe partially autonomous to one in complete submission to the US in pursuit of the globalization of interventionism and global confrontation with Russia and China. As it did appear at the time the summit of unipolar arrogance and US/NATO hegemony, it was a wake-up call to everybody who believes in a new democratic world order.

Chaos in Pakistan: Imran Khan takes on America and its 'Comprador Elites'
March 19, 2023 — With staunch US support, Pakistan's unelected "imported government" is trying to arrest former Prime Minister Imran Khan, the most popular politician in the country, to prevent him from running in elections . . . After a US-backed regime change operation removed elected Prime Minister Imran Khan from power in April 2022 . . . For the first time, a civilian politician who was ousted from power didn't simply end up in the dustbin of history, alongside interchangeable corrupt politicians who for decades played musical chairs, competing to plunder the country . . .
The enormous popular rejection of the current "imported government," as Khan calls it, has made Pakistan's elites increasingly desperate. They want him eliminated. Assassination was their first method of choice—but they fumbled . . . In the meantime, Plan B is being implemented: Arrest Khan on bogus charges and disqualify him from politics forever . . .

US Hegemony & its Perils
February 2, 2023 — Since becoming the world's most powerful country after the two World Wars and the Cold War, the United States has acted more boldly to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, pursue, maintain and abuse hegemony, advance subversion and infiltration, and willfully wages wars, bringing harm to the international community.
The United States has developed a hegemonic playbook to stage "color revolutions," instigate regional disputes, and even directly launch wars under the guise of promoting democracy, freedom and human rights. Clinging to the Cold War mentality, the United States has ramped up bloc politics and stoked conflict and confrontation. It has overstretched the concept of national security, abused export controls and forced unilateral sanctions upon others. It has taken a selective approach to international law and rules, utilizing or discarding them as it sees fit, and has sought to impose rules that serve its own interests in the name of upholding a "rules-based international order." Full story: fmprc.gov.cn
Comment: This report, by presenting the relevant facts, seeks to expose the US abuse of hegemony in the political, military, economic, financial, technological and cultural fields, and to draw greater international attention to the perils of the US practices to world peace and stability and the well-being of all peoples.
The Chinese analysis is harsh but accurate—and China must be expected to act upon it. The Chinese paper comes one day before Putin's Federal Council speech and two days before Chinese top-diplomat Wang Yi's visit to Moscow and four days prior to the PRC's statement entitled China's Position on the Political Settlement of the Ukraine Crisis which unelected POTUS Joe Biden snubbed.
Former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury for Economic Policy, Paul Craig Roberts opined: "The Chinese are mistaken that the US is the most powerful country. US power has rested on the dollar as world reserve currency, a role that is being destroyed by US sanctions that drive countries away from the use of the dollar, by massive and growing debt, by the demoralization of US armed services by anti-white propaganda and racial privileges for people of color and sexual privileges for sexual perverts, an unregulated financial system prone to crisis, and by Identity Politics that has destroyed national unity and shredded protections granted by the US Constitution.
Mao Zedong was correct decades ago when he described the US as "a paper tiger." It is extraordinary that both Russia and China are so intimidated by a paper tiger that they are fearful to act in their own interests, instead accepting provocation after provocation (paulcraigroberts.org).
Putin tells Xi he's "Open to negotiating Process" on Ukraine as the US says "Ceasefire Unacceptable" (zerohedge.com). After Good Friday the dollar will crash with the world economy and other fiat currencies; and after mainland USA is invaded, defeated and surrendered early one June it will have a change of heart over the slaughter it has perpetrated with NATO in their proxy war against Russia in the Ukraine.
The churches having rejected Christ's second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming in 1963, forerun by Brother Branham, the Prophet of Malachi 4:5, 6b, Matthew 17:11 and Revelation 3:14; 10:7, ended in apostasy spiritually blind "and know it not".
1962/10/11 – Roman Catholic Pope John XIII convoked Second Vatican Council (Vatican II). Through the Council, Satanic globalists expanded and deepened their infiltration to destroy the institutional Catholic Church and weaken Catholic faith (?) around the world.
1963/06/30 – Enthronement of Lucifer ceremony coordinated with consecration of Pope Paul VI.
1986/08/27 – Roman Catholic Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre published Letter to 8 Cardinals Regarding the Assisi Affair, addressing dangers to the Catholic faith (?) presented by Pope John Paul II's planned Interfaith Peace Service.
1986/09/18 – Pope John Paul II conducted a multi-religious Interfaith Peace Service in Assisi.
2019/10/04 – 10/19 – Roman Catholic Pope Francis hosted pagan Pachamama/Gaia worship ceremony in Vatican Garden, at Basilica of St. Peter, and Santa Maria Traspontina Church, and during Way of the Cross, until angry Catholics seized pagan statues and threw them into Tiber River.
The USDoD Controlled COVID 'Vaccines' from the Start under National Security Program. Lied Entire Time – Never 'Safe & Effective'
February 5, 2023 — According to congressionally passed statutes, research of active laws, and extra details obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, the Department of Defense owns, implements, and oversees the COVID-19 vaccine program as a "Countermeasure" to foreign attack. While the public was bombarded with an orchestrated fear campaign the US Government managed the Covid response as a national security threat.
The research and documents were obtained by a former executive of a pharmaceutical Contract Research Organization (CRO), Sasha Latypova, and 1ntensive legal researcher Katherine Watt . . .
"The implication is that the US Government authorized and funded the deployment of noncompliant biological materials on Americans without clarifying their "prototype" legal status, making the materials not subject to normal regulatory oversight, all while maintaining a fraudulent pseudo-"regulatory" presentation to the public," said Latypova.
"Most incredible is the fact that current Laws enacted by the United States Congress appear to make the coverup actions LEGAL!" . . . The American people were led to believe that the FDA, CDC, and figureheads like Anthony Fauci oversaw the COVID-19 vaccine program. Their involvement was an orchestrated information operation. All decisions concerning the COVID-19 vaccine research, materials acquisition, distribution, and information sharing were tightly controlled by the DoD . . .
According to Latypova and Watt, a combination of recently passed legislation and executive orders make it LEGAL to LIE! The HHS Secretary is accountable to no one if the Health National Emergency continues to be extended by Congress every three months . . .
For a vaccine to receive designation under the EUA, there can be no other known treatments or cures. Therefore, many proven treatments such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine were blacklisted in the media and dismissed as "horse dewormers" when these cheap, readily available drugs were in the past heralded for their effectiveness. Eminent COVID-treating doctors such as Peter M. McCullough and Pierre Kory have faced unprecedented attacks on their medical credentials. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: Be sure you read the whole story. Satan's one world Eden is being erected by all of our governments under the Rider of the pale horse.
Testicular Turbo Cancer in Young Athletes? Death in Days or Weeks
March 19, 2023 — The mRNA continues to accumulate in the testes with time. How long and to what degree? We don't know because Pfizer didn't look beyond 48hr. More physical activity means more blood flow, with more mRNA delivered to the heart as well as the testes. So if the myocarditis and sudden cardiac death don't get you . . . Truthfully, we have no idea what the COVID-19 vaccine mRNA does after it deposits in the testes, because Pfizer and Moderna did not conduct any carcinogenicity studies to verify safety.
Coincidentally, Pfizer's COVID-19 mRNA vaccine partner BioNTech received European approval for new testicular cancer treatment on June 23, 2022, just as testicular cancer cases exploded across the German Bundesliga (click here). Interestingly, their novel treatment targets heavily pretreated patients with relapsed or refractory advanced testicular cancer. In other words, particularly aggressive (turbo?) testicular tumors that don't respond to conventional treatment. Again, it's almost as if they knew. Full story: makismd.substack.com
Geofence Surveillance: First, they spied on Protesters. Then Churches. You're Next
March 16, 2023 — Governments use geofence technology, which uses cell phone location data to identify people who are in a particular area at any given time. First, police began using geofence warrants to carry out dragnet sweeps of individuals near a crime scene. Then the FBI used geofence warrants to identify individuals who were in the vicinity of the Capitol on January 6, 2021. It wasn't long before government officials in California used cell phone and geofence data to track the number and movements of churchgoers on church grounds during the COVID-19 lockdowns. If we've already reached the point where people praying and gathering on church grounds merits this level of government scrutiny and sanctions, we're not too far from free-falling into a total surveillance state.
Dragnet geofence surveillance sweeps can and eventually will be used to target as a suspect every person in any given place at any given time and sweep them up into a never-ending virtual line-up in the hopes of matching a criminal to every crime . . . government's efforts to round up those who took part in the January 6 Capitol protests provided a glimpse of exactly how vulnerable we all are to the menace of a surveillance state that aspires to a God-like awareness of our lives. Relying on selfies, social media posts, location data, geotagged photos, facial recognition, surveillance cameras and crowdsourcing, government agents compiled a massive data trove on anyone and everyone who may have been anywhere in the vicinity of the Capitol on January 6, 2021 . . . You didn't even have to be involved in the Capitol protests to qualify for a visit from the FBI: investigators reportedly tracked—and questioned—anyone whose cell phones connected to wi-fi or pinged cell phone towers near the Capitol . . .

Comment: Don't trust the government with your privacy, digital or otherwise. Don't trust the government with your property. Don't trust the government with your finances. Don't trust the government with your health. Don't trust the government with your life. Don't trust the government with your freedoms. For those wondering what to expect from the government in 2023, it looks like we're going to be in for more of the same in terms of the government's brand of madness, mayhem, corruption and brutality:
Digital prisons. Precrime. Mandatory quarantines. Mental health assessments by non-medical personnel. Tracking chips for citizens. Military involvement domestically. Government censorship of anything it classifies as disinformation. Threat assessments. War on cash. Expansive surveillance. Militarized police. Police shootings of unarmed citizens. False flags and terrorist attacks. Endless wars to keep America's military's empire employed. Erosions of private property. Overcriminalization. Strip searches and the denigration of bodily integrity. Censorship. Taxation Without Any Real Representation. (globalresearch.ca).
NWO Crisis & Reproduction of Life: Food, Water & Energy
March 18, 2023 — The scale and complexity of the 2020-2023 Global Economic and Social Crisis far surpasses all previous "depressions" . . . The ongoing global crisis has literally disrupted and destroyed people's lives Worldwide in three years. Everything is interrelated:
- the Covid pandemic, the mRNA vaccine,
- the relentless destabilization of the global economy resulting in mass poverty, famines,
- the destabilization of the Nation State, the destruction of democracy, the war in Ukraine,
- the engineered collapse of production,
- the hikes in the prices of energy and food,
- financial fraud, corrupt governments,
- media disinformation,
The article below was written fifteen years ago in June 2008 at the height of the 2007-2009 Economic Crisis . . . also focusses on the US population control agenda as contained in the National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM 200) formulated during the Nixon Administration. The US Congress set up a Commission on "Population Growth and the American Future." (See Center for Research on Population and Security). Under the helm of Henry Kissinger, the Commission's unspoken objective was to curb World population with a view to serving US strategic and national security interests . . . the source of inspiration of Klaus Schwab, et al. in the formulation of the World Economic Forum's Depopulation Agenda. What is at stake is a project formulated by the financial elites to undermine the "Reproduction of Real Life," whereby large sectors of the World population will be precipitated into abysmal poverty and despair.
The sugar coated bullets of the "free market" are killing our children. The act to kill is instrumented in a detached fashion through computer program trading on the New York and Chicago mercantile exchanges, where the global prices of rice, wheat and corn are decided upon. Poverty is not solely the result of policy failures at a national level. People in different countries are being impoverished simultaneously as a result of a global market mechanism. A small number of financial institutions and global corporations have the ability to determine, through market manipulation, the standard of living of millions of people around the World.
We are at the crossroads of the most serious economic and social crisis in modern history. There are many complex features underlying the global economic crisis pertaining to financial markets, the decline in production, the collapse of State institutions and the rapid development of a profit-driven war economy. What is rarely mentioned in this analysis, is how this global economic restructuring forcibly impinges on three fundamental necessities of life: food, water and fuel . . . a precondition of civilized society: they are necessary factors for the survival of the human species. . .

The God of Moses
The visions that John received on Patmos Island from AD95-96 are the most remarkable of all visions in God's unchanging Word. The entire Book of Revelation is set forth in symbols, and is thus the target of much guesswork, criticism and dispute. However, it bears the Seal of God that makes it authentic and of tremendous value to all who read or listen to its sacred pages. In Revelation 3:14-23 the God of Moses accurately foretold that the Laodicea or Pentecostal Church Age would end in apostasy, its adherents lukewarm toward Him—souls wretchedly fluctuating between a state of physical or mental inactivity and a fervour of love. This is a candid snapshot of Pentecostals both in and out of the circle of this Message. They claim, "I am materially rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that they are wretched and pitiable, bankrupt of faith, spiritually blind to the present Truth . . . what Jesus is doing NOW, and naked of the Blood of Jesus Christ . . . As many as I love, [not as many as love Me] I rebuke and chasten ["for if you are without chastisement, then you are bastards, and not sons" (Hebrews 12:8). "And I will vomit you out of My mouth".
Today the Pentecostals have the gifts but not the Giver, and know not that the Laodicean of Pentecostal dispensation ended in March 1963 when Revelation 10:1-7 was fulfilled. Shut out from denominational once Protestant assemblies Christ calls from without the door until the last saint predestinated to His end-time Bride hears and receives the revelation of the Seven Seals Christ loosed and unfolded for His end-time Bride after the close of the Laodicean Church Age as Son of God and Mediator sixty years ago (John. 16:13-14).
Revelation 4:1, "After these things"—the Blood has left the Mercy Seat, Christ's Mediation is fulfilled, Redemption is over; His PART-Word Church Age Bride must die and enter His Presence before we can be translated. This explains why Brothers Lee Vayle, Bob Brown, Morris Ungren, Lonnie Jenkins, Pearry Green, Reg Searle and other Pentecostal ministers have passed away and will not be seen until we meet the Lord in the Air.
When the Laodicean Church Age ended in Revelation 3:22 the Mercy Seat became a Judgment Seat so that when Christ claimed the Book of Redemption and opened the Seals He became Son of man and Judge (John 5:27). Earth is Christ's domain and the place of His Judgment. However God's wrath is restrained and the tribulation will be withheld until the Holy Spirit departs earth in the resurrection of the Church Age saints and the translation of Christ's end-time Bride (II Thessalonians 2:6). Our presence stays God's wrath and grace continues until the last member of Christ's end-time Bride recognizes her position in the Word and enters her place in the Body (Revelation 3:8a; 4:1a). So the earth is a Mercy Seat until we go Home because we are the Blood of Christ by the baptism with the Holy Ghost as the Life is in the Blood.
Like Jesus Christ and the Old Testament saints, the New Testament saints will rise Church Age by Church Age commencing on the first Day of Pentecost, three days after the Seventh Trump sounds and the earthquake sinks Los Angeles, typed by Leviticus 23:4-21 and Matthew 27:45-53. Los Angeles will sink on Nisan 14, Good Friday, between 6.00 a.m. and 7.00 a.m., the time of the Morning Sacrifice (after the Third Watch and about an hour into the Third Hour of the day). When the Sixth Seal manifests "there will be an earthquake of unprecedented magnitude since man was on earth; the sun will become black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon as blood" (Revelation 6:12; (65-1204, The Rapture, par. 27; The Revelation of the Seven Seals, par. 310–312; 392-393).
This earthquake will mark the climax of the threefold PROCESS of the 'rapture' Paul expounded in I Corinthians 15:35-58. As I speak the rapture has been in process since March 1963. The "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 was the Message of William Branham, the Prophet of Malachi 4:5, 6b and Matthew 17:11, "the Voice of the seventh angel" (Revelation 10:7) which was the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6 awakening the sleeping virgins and calling them OUT from Rome and her apostate (once) Protestant harlot daughter Churches to maturity in "the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation" (Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:9). His Message was confirmed by the heavenly voice of Revelation 18:4; it introduced the second Coming of Christ our Bridegroom in the prophetic office Son of man. The revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963 brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form.
"The Voice of the Archangel" is Christ whispering His secrets in the heart of His Bride, placing the Message from Genesis to Revelation. The "Trump" which we have been discussing will be Israel's Seventh Trump, calling 144,000 elect Israelites, not one of whom will be a so-called Jew, to the Land of their Covenant to receive the Message of the two Hebrew Prophets of Zechariah 4:12, Matthew 24:31, and Revelation 11:3-6.
In one day this unprecedented natural cataclysm will wreak universal death and destruction infinitely greater than World Wars I and II. With scores of millions dead, fear of nuclear warfare, collapse of the US dollar, national currencies and the global economy, the only agencies organized and prepared for such disaster relief will be the churches. The saints recognizing the Gentile dispensation has ended, will caution family, loved ones and whoever will listen, that they must face inevitable martyrdom but upon no circumstances should they serve Rome or her pagan Babylonian trinity dogma worshipped by Imperial Rome and introduced into the Judaeo-Roman Catholic false church when it organized at the Hegelian dialectic of the First Nicaea Council in AD325, for that is the mark of the beast. This is why Jesus called the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church Babylon, and her apostate (once) protestant daughter churches "harlots."
Imagine our reproach when we are accused of slandering the goodness and self-sacrifice of millions risking life and limb to bring relief, provide food, clothing, to rescue the perishing and care for the dying? Christ's end-time Bride will eventually become a hunted and persecuted little group: bereft we will exercise the 'third pull' for our necessities. Then what we speak God will do during "the manifestation of the Sons of God," expressing His will by "the mind of Christ in us" (Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 2:16). His purpose in this experience will be to elevate faith in us for translation grace for His glory "according to the working of His mighty power which He wrought in Christ when He [changed Him in the atoms], and raised Him from the dead" (Ephesians 1:19-20).
Do not underestimate the earthquake that will mark the close of the Christian dispensation sinking a 1,500 x 300-400 mile segment of earth's crust beneath the Pacific Ocean equivalent to the land area of the Australian State of Queensland (1.853 million km² or 715,300 mi²). If it struck Western Europe Great Britain, Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Holland and Germany would disappear in a day. If the earthquake struck South Asia India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka or Burma it would sink 60% of the sub-continent. If it struck Eastern Europe it would cause 40% of Russia to become ocean. Were the earthquake to smite West Africa, the whole of Nigeria, Congo, Cameroon, Benin, Togo and Equatorial Guinea would disappear. Were it to occur in South Africa, Zimbabwe would also be swallowed.
Regarding the USA, although Brother Branham said that San Francisco will not be destroyed by the earthquake, He explained "there is a two-or three-inch crack that come in the earth, starting in Alaska, goes around through the Aleutian Islands, comes out about a hundred and fifty or two hundred miles in the sea, comes back up at San Diego; takes in California, or Los Angeles, and comes out again just below the northern part of California there, a little place called San Jose, just below there . . . This was a sermon that I preached on . . . here in the church . . . it said, "The time will come . . ." that . . . the ocean shall weep its way into the desert." That was thirty years ago. And, of course, the Salton Sea is about two hundred feet below sea level, and if that big churning, that earth swallowing in like that, with hundreds of square miles, hundreds and hundreds of square miles sinking into the earth, that will throw a tidal wave plumb to Arizona. Sure, it would" (65-0711, Ashamed, par. 52-53, 60-61).
The Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys south from Sacramento and east from San Francisco will be drowned to Bakersfield in the South; Los Angeles will sink beneath the Pacific and the Salton Sea, Imperial Valley and the Gulf of California, located directly on the San Andreas Fault, are almost entirely 235ft (72m) below sea level. When the Hoover Dam below Las Vegas bursts, the Colorado River will baptize Mexicali and Baja, and the Pacific Ocean will lap Arizona, as is obvious from the topographical map.
Brother Branham prophesied, "Thou city, who claims to be the city of the Angels, who has exalted yourself into heaven, and sent all the dirty, filthy things of fashions and things, till even the foreign countries come here to pick up our filth and send it away, to your fine churches and steeples, and so forth, the way you do. Remember, one day you'll be laying in the bottom of the sea, your great honeycomb under you right now. The wrath of God is belching right beneath you. How much longer He will hold this sandbar hanging out over that when that ocean out yonder, a mile deep, will slide in there, plumb back to the Salton Sea. It'll be worse than the last day of Pompeii. Repent, Los Angeles. Repent, the rest of you, and turn to God. The hour of His wrath is upon the earth. Flee while there's time to flee, and come into Christ. Let us pray" (65-0429E, Choosing of a Bride, par. 229-232).
"A prophecy that I made, about 1935 or something like that, and said, "The time would come," it's written in a book somewhere, "that the sea would weep its way into the desert . . . If that thousands of square miles falls down into the lava of the earth, and slides in, there will be millions die at one time. And that'll cause such a tidal wave! Remember, plumb up into the Salton Sea, is a hundred or two hundred feet lower than the sea level. That water will probably come almost to Tucson, with that tidal wave coming across there. "And the sea shall weep its way into the desert" (65-0718M, Trying to do God a Service without being the Will of God, par. 25).
In 1986 when I was ministering in Holland, pastor Harry Van der Stel informed me he had seen a Russian submarine commander interviewed on television; he told the presenter he navigated his craft beneath Los Angeles and miles inland through cavernous tunnels hollowed out by the sea.
Brother Branham said, "As the scientists said the other day, on the television, speaking of the great thousands-of-miles break in the earth that's going to sink. He was asked the question, "It could sink there?" That's Los Angeles, the West Coast. And many of you seen how they followed it with radar, and went up through . . . broke in below San Jose, went across over into Alaska, out through the Aleutian Islands, about two hundred miles out into the sea, and come back down into San Diego, went around in behind Los Angeles, and come up there, a great pocket" (65-0725M, Anointed Ones at the End Time, par. 18).
"Now, the last few days . . . here come out a paper of science, said, "It's all honeycombed, it's got to go under." They just know it. And you watch the water will come plumb back into the Salton Sea. Los Angeles is doomed for judgment. I tell you before it happens, that you might know when it does happen. I never spoke that by myself. And I've never had Him to tell me one thing but what happened. And you can bear record of that. That's right. When? I don't know" (65-1126, Works is Faith Expressed, par. 62-64).
Now not only did Brother Branham prophesy the sinking of much of California, he made a similar prophecy concerning Florida, much of which will sink beneath the Atlantic. The Florida peninsula is a porous plateau of karst limestone sitting atop bedrock known as the Florida Platform . . . Extended systems of underwater caves, sinkholes and springs are found throughout the state and supply most of the water used by residents, the limestone is topped with sandy soils.
In 1953 the Prophet said, "One of these days there isn't going to be any Florida. She's going to be sunk and the things that you so worship now will perish" (53-1129A, The Faith that was Once Delivered to the Saints).
"Nations are breaking. The world is falling apart. Fifteen-hundred-mile chunk of it, three- or four-hundred-miles wide, will sink hundred . . . or 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" (65-0822E, Thinking Man's Filter, par. 144).
The New Madrid Fault extends from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes. In the Mississippi Valley it has repeatedly produced sequences of major earthquakes, including several of magnitude 7 – 8; as recently as 1811-1812 the river flowed backwards. New Orleans independent geologist Jack M. Reed believes the origin of earthquakes along the New Madrid seismic zone lie beneath the Gulf of Mexico. According to him, the Gulf was and is tectonically active—and is the likely origin for not only the New Madrid seismic activity, there is an apparent connection of the New Madrid seismic zone with the Gulf rift features to the south. This northeast trending earthquake zone appears to connect with the northeast trending Monroe Uplift, the La Salle Arch and, possibly, to an active seismic zone located in and around Sabine Lake on the Texas-Louisiana border. If the New Madrid seismic zone is indeed part of a triple juncture, there should be an expression of this limb trending along a line in a northeast direction. . ."
Concerning the manifestation of the Sixth Seal we read "the earth is moved" (Isaiah 13:6-16; 24:1-23; 34:1-8; 61:2c; Jeremiah 49:21; Joel 2:10, 31; 3:15; Matthew 24:29-30; Hebrews 12:25-29; Revelation 6:12-17; 16:18-19, 18:21-23).
Revelation 16:17-21 and Zechariah 14:1-8 call for earthquakes to occur in the western and in the eastern hemispheres: "And the seventh angel [William Branham] poured out his Vial into the air" [at the second crucifixion of the Word by the church]. There will be a fresh cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary for our meeting with the Lord and the marriage supper of the Lamb; and once the Church is translated, Satan and his host will be cast down to earth.
The second 'rapture' under the New Testament will be the resurrection and glorification of the Church Age saints who have "fallen asleep" over the past two thousand years, then "we who are alive and remain" will recognize one of the resurrected, glorified saints. That experience will supercharge faith and with a short, quick pain we will be rid of our mortal spirit, and corruptible flesh will put on the incorruption of a glorified body."
In Matthew 16:24 – 17:1-13, "Jesus told His disciples, If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it: and whoever loses his life for My sake shall find it. For what will a man be profited, if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels; and then recompense every man according to his works. Truly I say to you, there are some standing here, who shall not taste death until they see the Son of man coming in His kingdom." This came to pass after six days (typing Man's day, "When Jesus took Peter, James and John apart, and brought them to the top of Mount Transfiguration where He was transfigured before them and Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him. Three is a witness, and the three disciples represented the 144,000 elect Israelites who will witness Christ's second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming to Israel in Daniel's Seventieth Week. Those two Hebrew prophets of Matthew 17:1-3 are the two "angels" of Matthew 24:31 endued with the Spirit and power that rested upon Moses and Elijah. They will reveal the Seven Trumpet mysteries that call and rejuvenate the Israel nation, all 144,000 (Zechariah 4:12-14; Revelation 11:3-12). They also represent the sleeping Church Age saints who will resurrect, and "we who are alive and will remain" for the body change and translation.
This is taking place because sin has reached its climax "as it was in the days of Noah"; once again the besetting sin is miscegenation in the spirit and in the flesh (Genesis 6:1-4; Matthew 24:37), so when we testify we are confronted by "scoffers, walking after their own lusts. And saying, where is the promise of His (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming? For since the fathers fell asleep all things continue as they were" (II Peter 2:10; 3:3-4). And "as it was in the days of Lot" when the besetting sin was homosexuality in spite of the ministry of three witnesses, one of whom was God veiled behind the flesh of a created Man "discerning the thought and intents of the heart" (Genesis 18; Luke 17:28-30; Hebrews 4:12). These scriptures have been and are being fulfilled in our day, and the eyes of the world are shut, but as it was in the days of Lot God will gather the foolish virgin out of the Great Whore and her harlot daughter churches before the nuclear fire falls.
The third 'rapture' under the New Testament will be two Hebrew witnesses who will prophesy to the Israelites. Revelation 11:7-12, "When they have finished their testimony the [Judaeo-Roman] beast that ascends from the bottomless pit (Revelation 13:1-12) will make war against them, and overcome and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city [Jerusalem (Revelation 16:19)], which spiritually is called Sodom [as it is the homosexual capital of the Middle East (Isaiah 1:9-10; Ezekiel 16:46, 49)]; and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And those of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not permit their dead bodies to be lain in a tomb. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth."
"And after three and a half days the Spirit of Life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them who saw them. And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them".
The Prophet explained, "The veil is the flesh . . . what keeps us from seeing God, face to face, in this church. The veil is what keeps us from seeing the angels at their positions this morning, standing by the seats. The veil is what keeps us from seeing Him. We are hid behind the veil, and that veil is the flesh. We are sons and daughters of God, we're in the Presence of God; "The angels of God [our theophanies] are encamped about those who fear Him." We're in the Presence of God, all the time. "I'll never leave thee; neither will I ever forsake thee. I'll be with thee always, even unto the end." But the veil is the flesh, that's what keeps us out of His Presence. But through the soul, the Spirit, by our faith we know that He's watching us. He is standing by us. He's here now" (57-0915M, Hebrews, par. 590).
The resurrected Old Testament saints "went into Old Jerusalem, and appeared to many." Luke 24:12-44 (John 20:1-9) cites three examples. When Peter entered the sepulchre he observed the linen clothes by themselves where He had laid, "and the napkin, that was about His head, wrapped together in a place by itself." Brother Branham explained, "Matter is spirit slowed down," and God's Presence is in a dimension faster than cosmic light, matter and time! So matter is light 'solidified'? When a high-powered bullet strikes the target you can see the damage but the bullet has returned to the dust or gasses from which it was formed; over millennia its constituents would return to copper or other elemental form. From the sixth dimension Jesus passed through the linen without disturbing it. Later that day He fellowshipped unbeknownst with Cleopas and an unnamed disciple on the road to Emmaus; when their eyes were opened at table "they knew Him, and He vanished out of their sight." Speed! They returned to Jerusalem that night and found the eleven with their companions. Travelling like a thought, Jesus materialized through a wall and ate broiled fish and honeycomb.
The resurrected New Testament saints will appear to citizens of New Jerusalem "who are alive and remain" (Matthew 27:53); this is how we will know the time is at hand. The surge of faith on recognizing a Brother or Sister will change us in the twinkling of an eye, the speed of thought. After death the body returns to the ashes and dust whence it came, and may be transformed into other forms such as energy or light or fruit cake, and in the microcosm particles of matter are transformed into radiation, but matter is indestructible and cannot be 'uncreated.' In the resurrection the sleeping saints will return in their theophany which will put on those elements as glorified flesh, and the mortal spirit of Christ's end-time Bride will be dropped and our theophany will transform and glorify the elements of our flesh after its likeness as man or woman in the prime of life.
Brother Branham said, "Based on these seven visions, along with the rapid changes which have swept the world in the last fifty years, I PREDICT (I do not prophesy) that these visions will have all come to pass by 1977. And though many may feel that this is an irresponsible statement in view of the fact that Jesus said that 'no man knoweth the day or the hour.' I still maintain this prediction after thirty years because, Jesus did NOT say no man could know the year, month or week in which His coming was to be completed. So I repeat, I sincerely believe and maintain as a private student of the Word, along with Divine inspiration that 1977 ought to terminate the world systems and usher in the millennium" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:3).
He also said, "Don't miss this. From the time God made the promise to Abraham, Genesis 12:3, to the time of Christ being rejected in AD33 by the Jews; according to Galatians 3:6 and 17, and according to Ussher's Chronology of the Hebrews; the power of God was with the Jews exactly nineteen hundred and fifty-four years. [1921BC + 33AD = 1954] . . . "Now, counting the time, we find that we have exactly (Listen.) seventeen years left, and we will have the same span of time given to us as God dealing with us in the power of the Holy Spirit since AD33 until 1977, the same span of time of 1954 years. God deals with us the same as He did with the Jews. See? How about that? Brother Branham was speaking in 1960. 1960 + 17 = 1977, Israel's seventieth jubilee; 1977 + 49 = 2026 + 1 = 2027, Israel's seventy-first jubilee ((61-0806, The Seventieth Week of Daniel, par. 195-201). Ussher's AD33 should be AD30.
Ours is a Pentecostal jubilee seven years before Israel's Atonement Day jubilee. 2019 + 1 = 2020. (See Newsletter 1053). Thus "Oh, brother, give me a church full of the Holy Ghost. God will do in ONE YEAR what all theologies failed to do in two thousand years. You wait till the anointing of the church really strikes home to that faithful the little remnant. After the doors of the Gentiles is closed, oh, God will anoint a Church then. "He who's filthy, let him be filthy still. He who's righteous let him be righteous still, and he who's holy let him be holy still." And God will anoint the Church with the power of God, and things will be taken place. Not only that then, but He's doing it now" (54-0515E, COD, par. 203).
Now, mark down in your book a little Scripture here I want to give you. Leviticus 25, begin with the 8th verse. God calls a jubilee every forty-ninth year; the fiftieth year was the jubilee. We know that. We understand that. From the first jubilee of Leviticus 25:8, in 1977 will be the seventieth jubilee, making exactly 3,430 years (i.e. Matthew 18:21 = Revelation 4:1-2). Jubilee means the going up, the release.
And for a third witness, "Now, then after that, I turned and looked, and I saw this United States burning like a smoulder; rocks had been blowed up. And it was burning like a heap of fire in logs or something that just set it afire; and looked as far as I could see and she'd been blown up. And then the vision left me. Five out of . . . of the seven, rather, has happened".
"And here comes around and shows, and then I predicted . . . I never said the Lord told me that, but standing that morning in the church, I said, "The way progress . . ." I got back to one end of the wall and run to the other end of the wall, and I said, "The way progress is going on, I'll predict that the time (I don't know why I'm saying it.)—but I predict that that'll all happen between right now, 1933, and 1977. And not knowing it, God knows my heart, I never knowed it until yesterday, that 1977 is the jubilee, and exactly the same amount of time run out that He give with Israel and everything at the end. So we're at . . . And here we are at the end of the age, at the coming in of the seventieth week. We don't know what time that the church will be gone. Oh, my. What can we do, friends? Where are we at?" (61-0806, The Seventieth Week of Daniel, par. 196-197, 212-213).
II Thessalonians 2:1-13, "Now we beg of you, brethren, by the second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our assembling to meet Him, not to be troubled beyond a reasonable, sober, and considerate state of mind, either by spirit, or by word, or by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ has already come. Let no one deceive you in any way: for the apostasy must come first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself over every so-called God or object of worship, so that he as God takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. Don't you remember that when I was still with you I told you this? So you know now what impedes his being revealed at this time. For the mystery of iniquity is already at work; only the Holy Spirit who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way in the translation of His end-time Bride. Then that Wicked One will be revealed, whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth, and destroy Him by the (Gk.) 'epiphaneia of His parousia' or visible manner of His Coming ["in Clouds of glory as He was seen on Mount Transfiguration, His garments shining as the power of God enfolds Him. And EVERY eye shall see Him, and also those who pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him" which will be the regeneration of 144,000 elect Israelites in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Zechariah 12:8 – 13:9; Matthew 16:27-28; Revelation 1:7; 19:11-21; An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 36:2-5)].
"The (Gk.) 'parousia' coming of the [incarnate son of perdition] will be with great power and signs and miracles, all of them false. And with limitless deceit of wickedness for those who, being ordained to condemnation, received not the love of the Truth whereby they might retain their name in the Book of Life and be saved. For this reason God visits them with a strong delusion, that they might believe the lie Satan caused Eve to believe. That God loves them so dearly—Baptists, Buddhists, Catholics, Muslims and Jews—that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness".
"But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because from the beginning God chose you for salvation by the Spirit's sanctifying work and by faith in the Truth".
