Bible Believers' Newsletter 769
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We always encourage readers and subscribers to study the teaching sermons, books, transcripts of radio broadcasts and other Christian resources on our Church Website including past issues of this Newsletter. While some old news items may be passe and a number of links inactive, the main articles hold a treasure trove of Spiritual blessings.
Today our contributing author Barry Chamish compares the black ops of the USS Liberty with the attack on the US 'safe house' in Benghazitwo situations in which the White House withdrew military support to accomplish a political agenda. This week's main article, "The Time is at Hand Part I" examines time in the light of prophecies presently in the process of fulfillment. It illustrates how two Greek words, 'kairos' and 'chronos' have been clumsily conflated into one English word 'time' as 'erchomai' and the Greek 'parousia' were misleadingly conflated 'come.' Surely 'coincidence' is when God chooses to remain anonymous (II Timothy 2:15).
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.

America Invades Africa: The Resource War and the Conquest of Mali
December 13, 2012 The United States African Command (AFRICOM) was created in 2007 under then Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld in the Bush Administration as a Military Command center that covers the entire continent of Africa. They wanted to create a permanent footprint in Africa to maintain the peace and security it desires that is deemed beneficial for US interests.
In a White House Press Release on February 6, 2007 the Bush Administration announced that a new centralized US command will be present in the African Continent through AFRICOM:
"This new command will strengthen our security cooperation with Africa and create new opportunities to bolster the capabilities of our partners in Africa. Africa Command will enhance our efforts to bring peace and security to the people of Africa and promote our common goals of development, health, education, democracy, and economic growth in Africa".
The interesting words used in the press release are development and economic growth. There are a number of elements that involve AFRICOM and its mission. The first being the competition it will encounter with China and other countries who deal with African states through diplomatic negotiations and business deals concerning the United States, especially western powers such as France and Great Britain who colonized Africa for centuries whether by signing treaties with African leaders who saw it as a benefit or by military force.
The US and its Western Allies use military force, whether by an invasion or by creating a coupd'état within the country of interest. AFRICOM's goal is to eliminate China and other countries influence in the region. Africa's natural resources are another important element to consider . . . West Africa alone provides about 20 percent of the US supply of hydrocarbons. The US corporate interest in Africa needs natural resources to feed its appetite for profits, a fact that should not be ignored. The US would create conflicts to justify their presence in the resource rich continent by any means including a way to generate a crisis within their targeted area of interest . . . "no crisis should go to waste" is a motto that Washington is obviously using.
In the beginning of 2012, the Tuareg Rebellion took place in the northern Mali conflict that involved several wars of independence against the Malian government in the Sahara desert region of Azawad. The Malian government lost its northern region to the Tuareg secessionists as a result . . . Ironically, both groups obtained weapons from Libya after the US/NATO led invasion . . .
Now the United States wants an invasion for "Humanitarian intervention" purposes. But as we all should know "Humanitarian Intervention" only means "Economic Intervention" because the criteria for such an intervention will lead to vast wealth including gold mining, oil and agricultural commodities that the US and other Western powers would want to exploit. The Western controlled United Nations (UN) wants sanctions imposed on Northern Mali because of its ties to terrorism. That is the first step of a coming intervention by the West. AFRICOM's true purpose is to seek and destroy African nations and install puppet regimes that are obedient to Washington. How do they achieve such an outcome? Create the crises and offer the remedy. AFRICOM will be the answer. Full story: globalresearch.ca.
PeterMali to pay PaulGermany
Many nations have deposited gold bullion at the New York Federal Reserve. Because many of the fake gold bars had the marking of US sources, nations began to ask for audits and tests of the gold bullion held in their name by the New York Federal Reserve. To the surprise of many, the New York Federal Reserve refused! Indeed the New York Federal Reserve refused the German government permission to simply look at their bullion! Germany's private central bank then went public assuring the Germans that they trusted America's private central bank and did not need to see the gold. That was followed by a bizarre editorial from CNBC's Senior Editor Jim Carney that it didn't really matter if the bullion was really there at the New York Federal Reserve, as long as the bookkeeping said it was! . . .
The German government started demanding their physical gold to be repatriated back to Germany from both the Bank of France and the New York Federal Reserve. Germany demanded all of the 374 tons of gold held by the Bank of France, but only 300 tons of the 1500 tons of bullion held by the New York Federal Reserve. Both the Bank of France and the New York Federal Reserve have stated that the process of returning the gold will take years . . . Mali is one of the world's largest gold producers. Together with neighboring Ghana they account for 7-8% of world gold output. That makes them a rich prize for nations desperate for real physical gold. So, even as Germany started demanding their gold back from the Bank of France and the New York Federal Reserve, France (aided by the US) decided to invade Mali . . .

Comment: China recently surpassed South Africa as the world's biggest producer of gold. In addition, last year China imported 800 tons of gold.
The first week of January 2013 has seen $114 billion withdrawn from 25 of the US' biggest banks, pushing deposits down to $5.37 trillion, according to the US Fed. Financial analysts suggest it could be down to the Transaction Account Guarantee insurance program coming to an end on December 31 last year and clients moving their money that is no longer insured by the government. . . The financial system has not seen such a massive fund outflow since 9/11 attacks.
US Hype over WMD: Five Invasion Plots, Three Continents, Identical Lies
December 21, 2012 Ironically the first allegation of Syria having chemical weapons would seem to have come from John R. Bolton, alleged by Congressman Henry Waxman to have persuaded George W. Bush to include the fairy story of Iraq purchasing yellow cake uranium from Niger in his 2003 State of the Union address. The allegation is unproven, however, since the documents are still classified.
Bolton is involved with a plethora of less than liberal organizations, including the Project for the New American Century, The Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) and the currently in the news, The National Rifle Association.
Relating to Syria, it should also be remembered that the country has been under increasingly strangulating sanctions since 2004. Former Chief Weapons Inspector in Iraq, Scott Ritter has written that: "chemical weapons have a shelf life of five years. Biological weapons have a shelf life of three." They also give off an "ether," say experts, which can be picked up by satellite surveillance, which Syria, as Iraq before it is certain to be comprehensively subject of. Heaven forbid Washington, Whitehall, Tel Aviv and the coalition of the coerced are crying "Wolf!" again. Heaven help anyone who believes them.

US Plan to launch Chemical Weapon Attack on Syria and blame it on Assad
January 29, 2013 Leaked emails have allegedly proved that the White House gave the green light to a chemical weapons attack in Syria that could be blamed on Assad's regime and in turn, spur international military action in the devastated country. A report released on Monday contains an email exchange between two senior officials at British-based contractor Britam Defence where a scheme 'approved by Washington' is outlined explaining that Qatar would fund rebel forces in Syria to use chemical weapons. . .

Wiping Countries off the Map: Who's failing the 'Failed States'
December 29, 2012 The Washington based National Intelligence Council (NIC) in its Global Trends report (Dec. 2012) "predicts" 15 countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East will become "failed states" by 2030, due to their "potential for conflict and environmental ills".
The list of countries in the 2012 NIC report includes Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Chad, Niger, Nigeria, Mali, Kenya, Burundi, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Somalia, DR Congo, Malawi, Haiti, Yemen (see p. 39).
In its previous 2005 report, published at the outset of Bush's second term, the National Intelligence Council had predicted that Pakistan would become a 'failed state' by 2015 "as it will be affected by civil war, complete Talibanisation and struggle for control of its nuclear weapons." Pakistan was compared to Yugoslavia which was carved up into seven proxy states after a decade of US-NATO sponsored "civil wars." The NIC forecast for Pakistan was a "Yugoslav-like fate" in a "country riven by civil war, bloodshed and inter-provincial rivalries" (Energy Compass, 2 March 2005).
While the failed states are said to "serve as safehavens for political and religious extremists" (p. 143), the report does not acknowledge the fact that the US and its allies have, since the 1970s, provided covert support to religious extremist organizations as a means to destabilize sovereign secular nation states. Both Pakistan and Afghanistan were secular states in the 1970s.
A Yugoslav or Somalia-style "failed state status" is not the result of internal social divisions, it is a strategic objective implemented through covert operations and military action. . . According to the [Washington-based] Fund for Peace, the "failed states" are also "targets for Al Qaeda linked terrorists" . . . [Pakistan and Nigeria are 13 and 14, UK and US are 158 and 159, while Australia is 165]. The activities of the jihadist Al Qaeda units in most of these countries are part of a diabolical [US] covert intelligence agenda. . . Full story: globalresearch.ca.

Israeli Death Squads involved in Sandy Hook Bloodbath: Intelligence Analyst
December 18, 2012 Today, Michael Harris, former Republican candidate for governor of Arizona and GOP campaign finance chairman, in an internationally televised news broadcast, cited "Israeli revenge" in, what he called, "the terrorist attack in Connecticut". . .
Harris, citing the flood of inconsistencies in the "cover story," pointed out the following, "The facts are now becoming obvious. This is another case where Israel has chosen violence and terrorism where their bullying in Washington has failed. Israel believes the US "threw them under the bus," particularly after the recent Gaza war, allowing Israel to be humiliated in the United Nations. Their response was to stage a terror attack . . . an Israeli "signature attack," one that butchers children, one reminiscent of the attacks that killed so many children in Gaza?"
. . . Now, a key former Senator, Chuck Hagel, who has helped expose this fact, is likely to be nominated as the Secretary of Defense, despite vocal protests from Israel. . . "The political reality is . . . that the Jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here. . ."
During his interview today, Mike Harris explained his rationale for looking to Israel as responsible for Sandy Hook, saying "This is exactly what Israel did in Norway; the political party that voted sanctions against Israel was retaliated against by a "lone gunman" who killed 77 children. This is what Israel always does, they go after the children. It is what they do in Gaza every day. It is what was done in Norway. It is what happened at Sandy Hook. Nobody buys the "lone gunman" story anymore, not with the Gabby Giffords' shooting, not with the Aurora "Batman" shooting, certainly not with Breveik, and certainly not in Connecticut."
After Harris' broadcast, key members of the military and law enforcement community contacted Veterans Today in full support of Harris' analysis. One three star general is quoted as saying, "Harris hit the nail right on the head and it is about time someone spoke up. . ." Full story: presstv.com
December 25, 2012 While the incident is ostensibly being handled by Connecticut law enforcement, early reports indicate how federal authorities were on the scene as the 911 call was received. Regardless of where one stands on the Second Amendment and gun control, it is not unreasonable to suggest the Obama administration complicity or direct oversight of an incident that has in very short order sparked a national debate on the very topicand not coincidentally remains a key piece of Obama's political platform. . .

January 24, 2013 You have played the part of an audience watching a gargantuan theatrical production complete with fake actors, fake news coverage and a fake narrative. I'm not saying nothing happened at Sandy Hook and that children weren't killed; what I'm saying is that everything after the event was constructed as complete theater: the selective publicizing of only those parents the media wants you to see, the refusal to release actual video footage from inside the school, the rapid alteration of the official storyline to shift from handguns to the now-infamous "AR-15" that the media claims was used in the shooting, without a single shred of evidence that such a rifle even exists.
But it's not just Sandy Hook. I'm using the term "Sandy Hooked" in a much larger sense to encompass the recent fake inauguration of a President with a fake alias and an obviously faked birth certificate. The band was faked; the "live" singing was faked; the speech was teleprompter-driven; the news coverage was an orgy of fairyland wishes that have virtually no chance of ever coming true. . .

The Holocaust Hoax Exposed
Today, if a book similar to this one were published in Europe, its author would be arrested and imprisoned. Their crime: simply questioning the so-called holocaust where six million Jews were allegedly exterminated during WW II. Indeed, researchers have endured solitary confinement, brutal beatings by Jewish assailants, ongoing harassment, lengthy court battles, career suicide, and media attacks directed against their workall because they presented a "revisionist history" of this pivotal event. Other writers have been the victims of hate crimes, extensive smear campaigns, fines, death threats, and monetary rewards placed upon their heads after going into hiding.
The perpetrators behind these jack-booted Thought Police tactics are an entire holohoax industry devoted to suppressing factual data in favor of peddling heavy-handed doses of propaganda.
Despite these obvious dangers, The Holocaust Hoax Exposed dissects every element of what has become the 20th century's most grotesque conspiracy. Covered in jarring detail is the mythology surrounding "concentration camps," the truth about Zyklon B, Anne Frank's fable, how the absurd "six million" figure has become a laughingstock, and the betrayal by maniacal Zionists of their own Jewish people that led to their deaths (via starvation and disease) after Allied bombings cutoff supply lines to German work camps.
Yet, the only way an Israeli state could be created on stolen Palestinian land following WW II was through the most outlandish lies imaginable. Consequently, the holohoax industry has become a tyrannical dictatorship that incessantly manipulates, distorts, marginalizes and manufactures false results to achieve their Machiavellian ends. . .

Of Benghazi and the Liberty
by Barry Chamish
A Texas writer, Robert Morrow, sent me the following:
There is an extremely important book that came out in 2003 and was published by Vision. It is "Operation CyanideWhy the Bombing of the USS Liberty Nearly Caused World War III" by Peter Hounam and it is about Israel's attack on the USS Liberty on June 8, 1967.
Here is why I know Lyndon Johnson ordered Israel to attack the USS Liberty and that the goal was to blame it on Egypt and justify the USA entering the Six Day War on the side of Israel so the USA could bomb and take out Nassar of Egypt: the nuclear loaded Strategic Air Wing at Beale Air Force Base in California went on alert between 3˝ and 1˝ hours BEFORE word supposedly got to Washington, DC that the USS Liberty had been attacked by unknown forces.
Only the orders of the President of the USA could have put that nuclear air unit on high level alert.
But only the Council for Foreign Relations could have covered up the crime. Members will be cited (CFR). John McCain's (CFR) father, the Admiral, (CFR) led the government commission of inquiry which exonerated Israel for deliberately and with deadly purpose, almost sinking the USS Liberty in 1967.
Of my personal relationship to Hounam, recall me writing:
The issue of the Liberty has deeply poisoned the American relationship with Israel. It is a far greater thorn than Israelis understand because, in fact, Israel did try to kill every sailor on board The Liberty. If I needed persuasion of that, I got it with the correspondence I began with two officers of the Liberty, as well as my personal meetings with British documentary maker, Peter Hounam, who made a highly damning of Israel film of the incident, shown on the BBC . . .
Lest one think, all this work is borderline and there is no recognition in the controlled mainstream media, I saved one letter and did not tape one phone call from Peter Hounam of the BBC and Sunday Times. He read my book Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin and met me in Israel. In his case, we could be dealing with an objective reporter. He was the reporter who broke the Vanunu revelations in the Sunday Times. Nonetheless, he is convinced my reporting of the Rabin murder is the right version of the facts. I gave him a copy of my new tape, Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin, recorded at the last Rabin convention in Jerusalem. He phoned and told me it was a "tour de force." He has committed himself to pursuing the Rabin murder in whatever form he can expose the truth. Now this is not the first time an established journalist from a mainstream media has made the same commitment. In every other case, the projects were forcibly halted.
And Hounam was stopped before he could break my Rabin work. One more of life's disappointments.
At this moment, in the US, a new version of the Liberty scandal, the President ordering his Navy to abandon a ship under attack, is being repeated, only this time the President ordered his Navy to abandon an embassy under attack in Benghazi, Libya resulting in the murders of four staff, including the Ambassador. And the President and Secretary of State were watching the attack live via satellite TV in a White House media room. The details get murky from here, did Hillary bring the popcorn, and did Barack sneak his arm around her shoulder, all fuzzy. What has to be investigated is who gave the order to "stand down," from the besieged embassy:
Among the allegations, Fox News correspondent Jennifer Griffin said "sources who were on the ground in Benghazi" said CIA operatives about a mile away from Ambassador Stevens' compound were told twice to "stand down" after hearing gunshots during the night of the assault. (The gunshots were heard at approximately 9:40pm). Additionally, Griffin's report says that former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods disobeyed orders to "stand down" and rushed to the US compound housing Ambassador Stevens alongside at least two other personnel. After receiving fire from militants near the compound, the team reportedly evacuated everyone they could find and returned to the CIA annex to call for more backup. "At that point, they called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house or annex. The request was denied," reported Griffin.
Changes are taking place at State. Hillary "wants" to quit and her choice as new Secretary of State, Susan Rice (CFR), was chosen to be the scapegoat for the Benghazi embassy abandonment, though she had nothing to do with the real scandal of who gave the order to stand down from saving the compound. All she did was announce that the reason for the attack was an American movie insulting Islam. So she made a mistake. She did not commit a deadly crime. That honor goes to Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton.
Hillary had a busy month. First she flew to the Middle East and forced Israel to accept the Moslem Brotherhood of Egypt as negotiators of their cease fire with Hamas. Obviously a fair mediator. She left the region and the very next day, Egyptian leader Muhammed Morsi declared Sharia law had taken over the country. This, we ask, was without Hillary's consent?
Perhaps Morsi's actions weighed on the Secretary because she caught flu, passed out standing up, hit her head and suffered a concussion. On the day of the Newtown massacre, Obama spoke to the victims, trained to wipe his eye for effect. It worked with Reagan. It didn't with Obama. That took up all but a fraction of the news and in a small slice of the remaining time we learned that Hillary Clinton was excused from testifying to the Congressional Benghazi Commission because of her concussion. Lucky break.
Replacing Susan Rice (CFR) is John Kerry (CFR). Susan Rice was John Kerry's foreign policy advisor during his failed candidacy for President. He is a graduate, like both President Bushes, of the occultic Yale University cabal, the Skull and Bones Society. The well publicized CFR agenda insists on Israel withdrawing from Gaza, Judea and Samaria and half of Jerusalem, making Israel unviable as a state. To that end, like Dean before him, Kerry has promised to appoint Jimmy Carter (CFR) or Bill Clinton (CFR) as his administration's Middle East advisor. Not that Kerry will receive any new advice from either of them, since his campaign manager is Alan Solomont, an executive of the far left Peace NowAmerica.
But as his prominence grew, so did the investigation of his past. And what did we recently discover; why Kerry is Jewish on his father's side. Kerry was Kohn. Somehow, he forgot the fact that his grandparents were prominent Jewish business people in Prague and that his father is 100% Jewish. Ask yourself, do you know anyone who doesn't know his father's religious background?
The Middle East has drawn the Presidency and State Dept. into a scandal as deep as Watergate. Except, I'm betting they'll successfully cover up for Benghazi just like they did the Liberty.
The Time is at Hand Part I
Revelation 1:1 "The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him, to show to His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John: who bore record of the Word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw [in the Patmos visions]. Blessed is the reader, and those that hear the Words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand".
"The time is at hand" when you can see the prophecies of God's Word coming to pass, and we see, hear and read of their unfolding in the daily news. This is Gk. 'kairos' time, a limited time of opportunity, a fixed and definite epoch for decision before matters are brought to crisis.
From Genesis to Revelation the Bible is the revelation of Jesus Christ. He was revealed in the innocent lambs God slew to place Adam and Eve under the blood; in Joseph who forgave and preserved the lives of his brothers who had rejected him as Jesus would pray for His brothers "Father forgive them, for they know not what they do." He was revealed to Moses as the Shekinah in the 'burning' bush, to Israel as the smitten Rock that brought life (Exodus 17:6; I Corinthians 10:4), and to Paul on his road to Damascus when He spoke from the Shekinah before which Moses did obeisance, "I am Jesus whom you persecute: it is hard for you to kick against the pricks" (Acts 9:5).
God is revealed in nature: "Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation: and in Him [as the Logos] all things were created that are in heaven and in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him: He is before all things, and it is His power that sustains all things "(Colossians 1:15-17).
His disciples asked, "What will be the sign of your ['parousia'] Coming [to Israel, hence the first resurrection]"? Jesus replied, "Then the sign of the Son of man shall appear in heaven: and all the tribes of the earth shall mourn when they see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels [anointed with the Spirit that endued Moses and Elijah] with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds [of the 'hot stage' of the present World War III], from one end of heaven to the other . . . but no man knows that day and hour, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only" (Matthew 24:3, 30-36). On the Mount of Olives they again asked, "Will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel? And He replied, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons [in which these things must shortly come to pass]" (Acts 1:6-7).
After His resurrection and ascension God revealed how He would achieve the second of His threefold purposes essential to the manifestation of the Sons of God and the first resurrection which His disciples could not have comprehended during His earthly sojourn, because "no man can understand the Kingdom of God until he is born-again" (John 3:3). Only when the revelation of the Kingdom of God is living in and bringing us under preeminence to the Word for the "season and time" of this our dispensation can He wave that mystery in us as "written epistles read and known of all men" (Luke 17:21).
The revelation of the Church as the Body of Christ had not been disclosed to His disciples. The spoken Word seed sown in Mary bore the first ripe Corn of Wheat that was harvested on Calvary then waved and raised for our justification on the first day of Pentecost, and when the fiftieth day of Pentecost had fully come the spoken Word seed in the apostolic saints was quickened to power. But the tares and thorns of Judaism, paganism and antichristian Judaeo-Roman Catholicism overran the field through the Ephesian, Smyrnean and Pergamean Ages, extinguishing the Light of the Wheat, and the Life of Christ replanted in martyrdom slept through almost a thousand years of Dark Ages in Thyatira.
Hereafter Martin Luther's revelation of Justification by grace through faith in the Sardisean Church Age quickened the seed, and John Wesley's Message of Sanctification watered the great pollinating Age of Philadelphia that multiplied the Body of Christ worldwide. The revival continued with the restoration of the Gifts of the Spirit in Laodicea through the revelation "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever," and as the Life returned to Corn in the head the wheat plant or church that had carried the Life apostatized. Next the S_O_N-Light of this Capstone Message "restored the apostolic faith, finished the mystery of God" and introduced Christ the fullness of the Word by the revelation of the Seven Seals (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:1-7) while the Laodicean husk atrophied, opened and rejected the original Seed and His end-time Bride (Revelation 3:15-20). Now we rest in this holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the antitype of Israel's Pentecostal Feast, looking for and hasting unto the Pentecostal Jubilee and our harvest as the S_O_N-Light or teaching rain ripens us to maturity for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.
God works in threes, fives and sevens: the spoken Word is the original Seed that flourished, died and rose again. Multiplied at Pentecost it hybridized the seed of discrepancy, died of unbelief in Thyatira and was buried (Hebrews 11:39-40). After a thousand years it revived and has grown into the Capstone of the Body by the spoken Word to blossom and declare the original Seed when it is waved in the manifestation of the Sons of God as the PART-Word saints resurrect, and overcome death by changing in the atoms (I Corinthians 15:46-58).
Prior to Pentecost Jesus' disciples thought of Him as ruling an earthly kingdom of Israelites. But it will be a kingdom of every Adamic nation, tribe and tonguethe Church Age saints of "the general assembly and Church of the firstborn, written in heaven" (Hebrews 12:23) for whose ignorance He went away to intercede and prepare a placea theophanySpirit that will one day materialize as glorified flesh (John 14:1-4). Every soul in Adam's race has a theophany, but through unbelief in the revealed Word of God most of these become "fallen angels" (Matthew 18:10).
The "writing in heaven" is like a film positive in God's mindHis foreknowledge of your glorified appearance in theophanyyour angel or W_O_R_D form body. Your mortal body, spirit and soul is the negative that must be manifest here on earth, exposed to trials and temptations, then developed through the solution of faith overcoming by the Word of the hour and prayer in order to produce the heavenly image foreknown from the foundation of the world. Your eternal security is the revelation that you were in Jesus from the beginning, and when He manifested the fullness of the Word through the virgin birth you were part of Him then. This revelation in your heart is the tie post of the soul; and once you see it "neither height nor depth, nor demon can separate you from the love of God" (Romans 8:38-39).
Therefore Jesus added to His former response, "You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you: and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judaea and Samaria and to the end of the earth" (Acts 1:6-8). However, at that time even Jesus Himself could not tell them about His place in the Kingdom, for the Father had not revealed it to Him (Matthew 24:36). But midway through the Ephesian Church Age He was able to set forth here in this revelation of Himself to John what His glory and Presence in the Church would mean and do.
God gave the revelation to Jesus between AD95 96 to show His servants how He would reveal Himself in the saints in each Age of PART-Word, that He might be glorified by the Token of His Life seen in them. "So when Israel's high priests Annas, Caiaphas and the hierarchy saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were laymen untrained in rabbinical learning, they marveled; then recalled that at an earlier period they had seen them with Jesus" (Acts 4:13). At this time the original apostles were dead aside from John, and the Pentecostal dispensation had ended. It was the antitype of the last six days of Israel's Feast of Unleavened Bread wherein the saints held and understood the pure Word undefiled by the leaven of Jewish fables, Gentile myths and human reasoning. By this time the Ephesian Church Age, the first of seven sabbaths, rests or baptisms with the Holy Ghost in the antitype of Israel's Pentecostal feast, had been in spiritual decline for forty years, having "left her first love" the Word and tolerated "the deeds of the nicolaitanes" by which men sought to establish a clerical hierarchy between God and the laity.
God's threefold purpose was first, to express "the fullness of Himself bodily" in one Man, Jesus Christ" (Colossians 2:9). Second, to bring that fullness of the Godhead bodily into a people, Christ's many-membered Body the Church, in whom He could have the preeminence, oversight and leading (I Corinthians 12:12-14; Ephesians 5:21-32). And third, to restore the Kingdom of God to its rightful estate whence it fell in the Garden of Eden (I Corinthians 15:20-28; Ephesians 1:10, 22-23).
God gave this revelation to Jesus after His ascension and He revealed these "things which must shortly come to pass" to God's angel the Prophet William Branham as he expounded them to his Church from March 17 to 24, 1963. Sixty years after Calvary when John was imprisoned on the Isle of Patmos for preaching the present Truth and testifying of Jesus Christ, like our Brethren in Iran and other countries today, he saw and heard Brother Branham in visions as he delivered our end-time Message.
Physically in AD95 John's feet were planted firmly on Patmos, while in the Spirit he heard the voice of Israel's Seventh Trumpet and was caught up into the yet future day of the Lord in perhaps 2013, and turning to look into man's day behind him in time he saw "one like the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the breasts with a golden girdle" as high priest in judgment (Revelation 1:10-16; 4:1; I Corinthians 6:3). This was Christ's glorified Bride drawn out from all seven Church Ages into the stature of the perfect Man (Revelation 22:17-19).
In Ephesians 4:8-16 we learn God gave the Church gifts of preordained men with a fivefold ministry "For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ".
Looking back from eternity into time in man's day "John bore record of the Word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw [in the Patmos visions]" (Revelation 1:2). In those visions John saw and heard William Branham who was the angel of Revelation 1:1 expound the "Revelation of Jesus Christ" signified in symbols of Jerusalem's Temple after the end of the Seventh or Laodicean Church Age. We know this angel was Brother Branham because the Book was "sealed unto the days of the voice of the seventh angel" (Revelation 10:7).
In his vision Daniel saw this Pillar of Cloud in the form of our Head wigged as a judge in the office Son of man (Daniel 7:9; John 5:27; Matthew 24:3; 26:64) announcing the imminence of Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming. In his last great vision the Seven Thunders uttered their voices and Daniel was told to "shut up the Words, and Seal the Book to the time of the end . . . Go your way, Daniel: for the Words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end" (Daniel 12:1-9).

Six hundred years after Daniel, John saw the sign of Jesus' imminent second or 'parousia' Coming that was photographed over Prescott, Arizona on February 28 1963 and published in the May 17, 1963 Life Magazine (Matthew 24:3; 26:24; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7; 10:1). John heard and testified of the blast of thunder over Sunset Mountain on March 8, 1963 when Christ opened the Seven Seals (Revelation 6:1). Revelation 10:4, 7, "And when the Seven Thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a Voice from heaven saying, Seal up the things which the Seven Thunders uttered, and write them not. . . But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he has declared to his servants the prophets".
The Book of Revelation has been sealed from eternity, and as Jesus revealed it to only one man the 'angel' of Revelation 1:1 must be the "angel" of Revelation 10:7 whom we have elsewhere established was our Brother William Branham. Furthermore, he is the angel of Revelation 22:8-10 "of John's brethren the prophets" (II Peter 1:20-21; Amos 3:6-8) who revealed the whole Book. We have also learned that "the time of the end" commenced at the close of the Laodicean or Pentecostal Church Age on March 8, 1963, when the threefold PROCESS called the rapture began with the midnight cry of Matthew 25:6: "Behold the Bridegroom; come out to meet Him." This is the "Shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 confirmed by the heavenly voice of Revelation 18:4, "Come out of Babylon, and be filled with His Spirit." This is the "third pull" of Brother Branham's ministry, the revelation of the Seals that finished the mystery of God, introduced Christ's second Coming, revealed how the saints were redeemed in each Age and who they are.
Since the Seals were not opened and revealed until the end of Christ's Mediation and the close of the Laodicean Church Age and Brother Branham revealed them to just one man, John represents you and me, Christ's end-time Bride. So wherever you read "I John saw . . . or I heard . . ." you should replace John's name with your own (Revelation Chapter 4, Part I, p. 592:41-42; Part III, p. 657:72-73). Likewise when Peter, James and John saw Moses and Elijah with Jesus on Mount Transfiguration they represented the 144,000 elect Israelites who alone will receive the revelation of His 'parousia,' and in Ezekiel 4 when the prophet lay on his left side for 390 days he represented those of the northern kingdom of Israel, and when lay on his right side for 40 days he represented those of the southern kingdom of Judah.
"Blessed is the reader and those who hear, [receive and act on the Logos] of this inspired prophecy declaring God's purposes, and observe those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand".
Ephesians 1:9-10, "God has made known to us in all His wisdom and insight the secret of His will, according to His [threefold] purpose which He set forth in Christ: that in the dispensation of the fullness of times [plural] He might gather together in one all things in Christ, things in heaven, and things on earth; even in Him".
If you read this whole chapter you will see that God is right now doing what Paul was prophesying. We live in the fullness of times [or Church Ages] when God is gathering His elect into the unity of His Word. The "shout" and "voice" of the rapture are bringing His end-time Bride into the unity of the faith (Ephesians 4:13-16) with the evidence of the Token of His Life on display in us, for the Church Age saints cannot be made perfect or glorified until we are prepared for the manifestation of the Sons of God (Hebrews 11:39-40). So "the dispensation of the fullness of [(Gk.) 'kairos' or opportunity] times," was when all seven Church Ages of PART Word were fulfilled. In this sense 'kairos' or opportunity time was when the Book was sealed and Christ was a Mediator receiving the revelation of Word for the hour and "winking" at the saints' ignorance of the fullness not yet revealed.
Redemption was over when the last saint predestinated to the Laodicean Church Age was born-again. The revelation of the Seven Seals finished the mystery of God and brought ChristNOT the glorified Jesus but Christ the Word back to earth (Matthew 24:23-28). I Corinthians 13:10, "When that which is perfect [or complete, Christ the fullness of the Word] has come, then that which is in PART, [PART-Word and Mediation for ignorance of the fullness], will be done away." By God's help we have the perfect interpretation of the Word with Divine vindication (COD, p. 1005:57).
Redemption and 'kairos' or opportunity timesseven Church Ages of mediation for PART-WordNOT 'chronos' time which is seconds, hours, seasons and yearsis over. Spiritually 'chronos' time has also ended for the elect, even for those who have not yet recognized their day and it's Message, because they were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary.
Brother Branham commanded, "Seal NOT the sayings of the prophecy of this Book: for ['kairos'] time is at hand [or nigh when we] will leave the evildoer to do evil, and the filthy still be filthy: and the righteous to still do right, and the holy to remain holy still" (Revelation 22:10-11). Have you recognized this end-time sign manifest worldwide today? As it was in the days of Noah and Lot "the earth is corrupt before God and full of violence"; fornication, homosexuality, adultery and miscegenation are condoned, encouraged and applauded by political and religious leaders. Social conscience is no longer outraged because we live in a time of lawlessness and "strong delusion" wherein wise admonition is snubbed, so we "let the evil-doer continue to do evil" (II Thessalonians 2:1-12; II Timothy 3:1 4:4; Titus 3:9-11). Consider the moral fibre of our contemporary leaders Bush, Clinton, Obama, Blair, Cameron, Sarkozy, Howard, Gillard, Rothschild, Rockefeller and Soros, or criminal organizations such as the international banks, NATO, and the United Nations.
Daniel (12:5-9) and John (Revelation 10:5-6) saw Christ descend in 'chronos' time on March 8, 1963 with the Book of Redemption open. The Church Ages and His office of Son of God and Mediator had ended and resuming the prophetic office Son of Man, He was King of kings and Judge. "And the Angel [Christ] which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up His hand to heaven, 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 ['chronos'] time no longer."
Hebrews 10:37, "Yet a little while, and He that shall come will come, and will not tarry." Indeed He has come "as a thief in the night" and the world, even the church world knows it not (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:22-28; I Thessalonians 5:2; II Peter 3:10; Revelation 3:3; 16:15). John represents you and I caught up in the Spirit before Christ on our Father's Throne after the close of Laodicea to receive the revelation of "the little Book" from Christ Himself because we do not require mediation (Matthew 28:18; I Corinthians 15:23-28; Revelation 3:21; 4:1; 10:8-11).
Come what may we are bound for the Promised Land of the Millennium and will not see death in the flesh, so for all intents and purposes 'chronos' "time is no more" for us. And when the last elect recognizes his place in the Body, Los Angeles will fall beneath the sea, calling the first resurrection and the manifestation of the Sons of God.
Revelation 4:1-2, "After the end of the Laodicean Church Age . . . [your name] . . . looked, and saw a door still open in heaven [God's grace will extend until the end of the Gentile dispensation when the door will be shut (Matthew 25:10)]: and the first Voice which I heard as a Trumpet speaking with me, (Revelation 1:10-11) [was the voice of Christ, Israel's Seventh Trumpet, the Shout of the first resurrection in the day of the Lord] saying, Come up here, and I will show you things which must be after [the Church Ages]. Immediately . . . [your name] . . . was [caught up] in the Spirit into heaven and saw a throne standing in heaven, and upon the throne One [not two or three] was sitting." This is where you are now.
Revelation 10:8-11, "The voice which . . . [your name] . . . said, Go and take the little scroll"; as it told Nebuchadnezzar, "the kingdom is departed from you"; and Peter, James and John, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, hear him." In the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week it will say, "Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord henceforth".
Physically we are here on earth like John, but in the Spirit we are caught up into the vision, hearing Jesus speak to us personally through William Branham's Message; NOT the 'rhema' of the recorded voice of a long dead prophet but the 'logos' as per verse 7: "In the days of the voice of the seventh angel." Like the witness of the voice of Abel's righteous blood and birthright in Genesis 4:10, "the voice of the seventh angel" speaks louder in his decease than it did in his life. Did he not say, 'I'll ride this trail once more'?
"And the voice which I heard from heaven said, Go and take the little scroll which is opened in the hand of the Angel [Christ] that stands upon the sea and upon the earth. And . . . [your name] . . . went to the Angel, telling Him, Give me the little scroll. And He said to me, Take and eat it up; and it shall embitter your belly, but it shall be sweet as honey. And . . . [your name] . . . took the little scroll out of the hand of the Angel, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth as honey, sweet: and when . . . [your name] . . . had eaten it, my belly was embittered. And He said, you must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings".
To "eat" is expressive of receiving, accepting, and becoming one with, as in partaking the elements in the Lord's Supper we signify we are at-one with the Word and Spirit of our Lord. (See Numbers 5:11-31; Jeremiah 15:16; Ezekiel 3:1-2; I Corinthians 11:23-34).
Now "You must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings." A prophet in the Scriptural sense of the Word is one who speaks for another as Aaron is called the prophet or spokesman for Moses in Exodus 4:15-16. God's prophets are His spokespersons into whose mouth the Lord puts the words they are to deliver to the people. To prophesy according to Scripture is to speak under Divine inspiration, not merely to predict future events, but to deliver Messages of God to men as the organ of His Spirit. Here Christ tells us we "must" and are obligated to declare or pass on the revelation of the end-time Message to "many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings." Or as Brother Branham said, 'Say what the tapes say. Say what the visions say'.
We see from Ephesians 1:10 and Revelation 1 3 there were seven "times" or Church Ages, each distinguished by a separate measure of Word and Spirit to build a particular member of the spoken Word Body of Christ; so "the time was at hand" when the Word for the Age was revealed by the angel who comes at the end of the Age with rebuke to correct the error into which the church has fallen and to deliver the new Message. The revelation of God for each Age can come in that Age only, and at a specific time. Thus Paul came at the end of Pentecost and delivered the Message for the Ephesian Church Age, and Brother Branham came at the end of the Laodicean Church Age with the Message for the end-time Bride. The Life of the angel's Message would display a particular virtue of Christ in the saints of his Age as a standard God has raised to His glory to counter and overcome Satan's affront in that Age (II Peter 1:1-8).
Pentecost kept "the faith once delivered to the apostolic saints," the antitype of the last six days of Israel's Feast of UNLEAVENED Bread; while the heart of Christ's end-time Bride is now "restored to the faith of our apostolic fathers" to fulfill the holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of Israel's Pentecostal Feast, with the fullness of the Word. Christ was the Word at the beginning or Alpha Age (Jude 3), and He is the Word at the end or Omega Age (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11) but He was not the PART-Word of seven Church Ages in-between.
In Matthew 26:18 we find the "time was at hand" or 'nigh' for Jesus to hire a room where He could keep the Passover with His disciples. This was of course not the Passover meal which followed the killing and preparation of the lamb, and He was to be the Passover Lamb that year.
Revelation 1:3: the "time was at hand" in each successive Church Age as the Word of the hour was completely disclosed to the angel. Now that the complete revelation of Jesus Christ has been restored and the "mystery of God" has been unveiled for almost fifty years, Christ's end-time Bride has the fullness of the Word and the "time is at hand" for the Pentecostal jubilee.
Revelation 22:10: the "time is at hand" to "prophesy again" the sayings or revelation of the Seals that Brother Branham delivered to introduce Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming, to indict the world church system and call out His elect to maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Revelation 10:1-7; 18:4; Matthew 25:6; Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19; I Thessalonians 4:14-16; I Corinthians 15:46-57). Since the Church Ages and Christ's mediation are over and the mystery of God is finished, true believers recognize there is no hope in this world because grace will end with the Gentile dispensation and the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel will "let evildoers continue doing evil, let he who is filthy remain filthy: let the righteous still do right, and the holy continue in holiness" (Revelation 10:7; 19:9; 22:11).
The Prophet said, "When is the time at hand? When the Revelation of Jesus Christ has been revealed to the Body of Christ, and Christ has been revealed, not dead, but alive, living in His Church, doing the same things He did, the same ministry, the same Gospel, the same sign, the resurrected Christ, when He's revealed by His Angel into the Church, [i.e. through William Branham, the 'seventh angel' according to his commission on the Ohio River in 1933, 'As John the Baptist introduced My first Coming, your Message will introduce My second Coming'], then the time is at hand. And never a time, since that day until this has the mystery of Jesus Christ ever been revealed until these last few years. Then the time is at hand" (Revelation Book of Symbols, p. 14:78; John 5:26).
The US "image to the beast" of Imperial Rome is absolutely subservient to the hofjuden, called in Scripture traffickers or speculators, merchants or bankers whose g_d is mammon, "the great men of the earth" made rich through Rome's wanton luxury whilst the poor become poorer. The Jewnited States, indeed the whole (once) Christian world is being bled while made to orchestrate controlled conflict between political Islam and political Zion, for the most part brainwashed so-called Christians who imagine Jews are Israelites descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Spiritually lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, America says, "I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; not knowing that she is morally wretched and miserable, spiritually bankrupt, blind to the faith and naked of the Blood" (Revelation 3:17). She has surrounded peaceful Iran, Russia and China with garrisons and is inciting the 'hot stage' of World War III in accordance with the 1871 military blueprint. So the "time is at hand" for Israel's Seventh Trumpet to sound, for the Sixth Seal to manifest, for the Seventh Vial to be poured out, and for Satan to be cast down to earth.
The enemy within America is also within the circle of this Message. The end-time Bride is surrounded by enemies like Israel on Nuweiba beach with impassable cliffs and Pharaoh's army behind them, the Red Sea before them, and unbelievers and make-believers within the camp. The "time is at hand" for the Pentecostal Jubilee (which will approximate the jubilee of Vatican II that was opened by Pope John XXIII on October 11, 1962 and its final session closed by his successor Pope Paul VI on December 8, 1965). The "time is at hand" for Los Angeles to sink beneath the Pacific and for the Mount of Olives to cleave in twain, demolishing the Dome of the Rock and igniting the 'hot stage' of World War III, calling the first resurrection, the 'squeeze' and the manifestation of the Sons of God.
As the angel Brother Branham spoke with John by revelation on the Isle of Patmos the voice of the seventh angel will speak with you by revelation if the Spirit indwells you. "Faith is the evidence of things UNSEEN" (Hebrews 11:1). If you are caught up in the Spirit before the Throne in heaven and Jesus is speaking to you through the angel of Revelation 1:1 you have heard from your theophany. That ministering spirit and guardian angel from the Presence of God is with His elect from birth. "The angel of the Lord encamps round about them that reverence Him and protects them" (Psalm 34:7). That is, His redeemed.
Cast your mind back to dangers you have escaped, opportunities missed, foolish, wrong or sinful mistakes you have made, and count your blessings for "all things work together for good to them that love God, and who are the called according to His purpose" (Romans 8:28). God has preserved you from destruction so you could hear, recognize and walk into the Light of His wonderful end-time Message and give Him glory as a written epistle of the present truth (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7). The Book of Revelation began with a blessing on the reader and the hearer because it is the revelation of Jesus Christ that gives you authority over the Devil; consequently it ends with a curse upon the hearer who adds to or diminishes from the Words of the prophecy. nl769.htm
