Bible Believers' Newsletter 952
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it's good to have you with us for divine fellowship.
Christianity has circled the globe from Jerusalem and Damascus where the saints were first called "Christians." Today it is back in Syria as "apostates who say they are Christians, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan." These soldiers are anti-Christians led by the rider on the pale riding from Washington to perdition.
The seven heads and ten horns of the beast which carried the Judaeo-Roman Universal church for two thousand years will resolve themselves into separate histories as a church and ten states when the EU breaks up. Right now they are reuniting with their head, like her (once) Protestant daughters, to revive the Holy Roman Empire. "All whose names are not written on the Book of Life from the foundation of the world will wonder at this miracle when Satan is cast down to earth and they see the Roman Empire which was, and is not, and yet is" (Revelation 13:3; 17:8).
Rome must strike while the EU exists otherwise she will lose all chance of ruling the world. She will reinforce her position by refinancing the USD and uniting the Protestant churches with the US State to form an image unto the beast (Revelation 13:11-18). After midst of the Week the ten horns will hate the whore and side with the Judaeo-Communist Talmudic power of the Jewish banksters, destroying Vatican City State and the USA.
May you feed your soul as you study our news items and out main article, "What the Tapes Say," proving all things against the Absolute of God's Holy Bible.
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.
Washington's Imperial Project in Syria Faces Defeat. Obama's Criminal Legacy
December 6, 2016 — Obama will be remembered for waging endless wars of aggression throughout his tenure, at home and abroad—a war criminal remaining unaccountable for his high crimes, a Nobel Peace Prize recipient, one of many examples mocking its legitimacy. He'll leave office in January after bombing seven countries, multiple conflicts on his watch still raging, including nearly six years of terror-war on Syria, a nation threatening no one. According to Syria's War Information Center, around 65% of eastern Aleppo was liberated from terrorist control, additional neighborhoods freed daily. US-backed terrorists are increasingly isolated, heading toward capitulation or elimination, their choice . . .
On December 4, Reuters reported internecine fighting among terrorists in eastern Aleppo "in the face of an unprecedented onslaught by Russian-backed government forces . . . helping to put (Assad) on the verge of (his) biggest victory yet"—liberating Aleppo entirely, retaking it after four years under US-backed terrorists' control . . . headquartered in Washington, heading NATO's killing machine, waging global war on humanity.

The Coming War on China. Nuclear War is No Longer a Shadow
December 3, 2016 — I have spent two years making a documentary film, The Coming War on China, in which the evidence and witnesses warn that nuclear war is no longer a shadow, but a contingency. The greatest build-up of American-led military forces since the Second World War is well under way. They are in the northern hemisphere, on the western borders of Russia, and in Asia and the Pacific, confronting China.
The great danger this beckons is not news, or it is buried and distorted: a drumbeat of mainstream fake news that echoes the psychopathic fear embedded in public consciousness during much of the 20th century. Like the renewal of post-Soviet Russia, the rise of China as an economic power is declared an "existential threat" to the divine right of the United States to rule and dominate human affairs.
To counter this, in 2011 President Obama announced a "pivot to Asia", which meant that almost two-thirds of US naval forces would be transferred to Asia and the Pacific by 2020. Today, more than 400 American military bases encircle China with missiles, bombers, warships and, above all, nuclear weapons. From Australia north through the Pacific to Japan, Korea and across Eurasia to Afghanistan and India, the bases form, says one US strategist, "the perfect noose" . . .
In 2015, the Pentagon released its Law of War Manual . . . "and thus nuclear weapons are lawful weapons for the United States." In China, a strategist told me, "We are not your enemy, but if you [in the West] decide we are, we must prepare without delay" . . . "for the first time China is discussing putting its nuclear missiles on high alert" . . . the US staged its biggest single military exercise since the Cold War . . . an armada of ships and long-range bombers rehearsed an "Air-Sea Battle Concept for China" . . . blocking sea lanes in the Straits of Malacca and cutting off China's access to oil, gas and other raw materials from the Middle East and Africa . . . provocation, and the fear of a US Navy blockade, that has seen China feverishly building strategic airstrips on disputed reefs and islets in the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea . . .
In October, Richard Marles, the defence spokesman of the main Australian opposition party, the Labor Party, demanded that "operational decisions" in provocative acts against China be left to military commanders in the South China Sea. In other words, a decision that could mean war with a nuclear power should not be taken by an elected leader or a parliament but by an admiral or a general. This is the Pentagon line, a historic departure for any state calling itself a democracy . . . Full story: newint.org
Comment: RT Documentaries will broadcast The Coming War on China worldwide on December 9, 10 & 11. The Australian release will be early 2017 on SBS Television.
Dismal Jobs Report
December 7, 2016 — Democracies are afflicted with false news, because false news is the way the ruling oligarchy controls the explanations given to the public. The public must be kept in the dark about their exploitation by the oligarchy, or they might revolt against the handful that rules them.
The oligarchy learned this during the Great Depression when the public, aware that they were being ruined by the rich, were approaching a state of rebellion. In his history, The Crisis of the Old Order, historian Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., reports the many warnings from seasoned politicians that something must be done to relieve the hardships or revolution was on the horizon.
FDR, a rich aristocrat [from the opium trade], saved the oligarchs with rhetoric and a few public spending programs that appeared helpful until he could get America into World War II. The war scooped up the unemployed youth and put them into the military, and put the rest of the unemployed to work producing guns, ammunition, tanks, airplanes, and naval vessels. War rescued the oligarchs.
Today the situation is worse than Roosevelt faced. In FDR's time, the factories were shuttered, but they were still there. Today America's factories are gone, moved to China and other areas of Asia. The supply chains are closed down. The skilled workforce is dying off. Essentially, Wall Street and the global capitalists have de-industrialized America. They have destroyed the ladders of upward mobility that made the United States an "opportunity society." It remains to be seen if Trump, even if so inclined, can do anything about the economy that globalism destroyed . . .

Why Big Mining loves Big Green
December 8, 2016 — War on coal, oil and gas . . . why is Big Mining not fighting back? . . . Wind and solar power are indeed "free", but to extract electricity from them is not free . . . Before one watt of green electricity is generated . . . green power has boosted demand for most products of Big Mining.
Green power also needs back-up power ready to swing into action immediately the wind drops or clouds obscure the sun. This is great news for reliable energy suppliers capable of rapid backup . . . So Big Gas loves Big Green . . . Uranium producers love the greens. They know that if coal and gas are banned from power generation, and all hydro-power sites are "world-heritage protected", all that is left to stabilise the electricity grids of modern society is nuclear power.
So Big Mining can extract benefits from green energy while earning PC credits . . . On the debit side are the usual victims—taxpayers and consumers of coal, oil, gas, electricity and metals; and employees and shareholders of industries being forced to close or emigrate . . .

Michigan lets Autonomous Cars on Roads without Human Driver
December 11, 2016 — Companies can now test self-driving cars on Michigan public roads without a driver or steering wheel under new laws that could push the state to the forefront of autonomous vehicle development.
The package of bills signed into law Friday comes with few specific state regulations and leaves many decisions up to automakers and companies like Google and Uber. It also allows automakers and tech companies to run autonomous taxi services and permits test parades of self-driving tractor-trailers as long as humans are in each truck. And they allow the sale of self-driving vehicles to the public once they are tested and certified . . . Full story: hosted.ap.org
Comment: "One Sunday morning in June, 1933 the Lord Jesus spoke to Brother Branham and said that the Coming of the Lord was drawing nigh, but before He came, seven major events would transpire . . . the fourth vision showed the great advances in science that would come after the second world war. It was headed up in the vision of a plastic bubble-topped car that was running down beautiful highways under remote control so that people appeared seated in this car without a steering wheel and they were playing some sort of a game to amuse themselves . . . The plastic bubble car has been built and is awaiting only a better network of roads" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 321:5, 322:5).
Advances in science mean existing roads are suitable. We have driverless Komatsu and Caterpillar trucks the size of two storey buildings carting ore and coal on unmade roads. So five of the seven visions are fulfilled; the sixth and seventh visions will be fulfilled in Daniel's Seventieth Week, after the going home of the Church.
Status of Investigation of N. Arizona Stratospheric Cloud of February 28, 1963
May 31, 1963 — A. Height. The survey work and the interviews in and around Flagstaff have revealed that the southern tip of the cloud lay about ten miles north of Flagstaff at about 1840 MST. (Mountain Standard Time) This implies that the range of the cloud from Tucson was greater than the initially assumed 190 miles. Using the revised range plus the angles of elevation previously computed from the four photos taken in Tucson gives an altitude of 43 km, which equals about 140,000 ft. or almost 27 miles.
[Now, this is important because the vision was very precise, showing Brother Branham that was forty miles north of Tucson in the vision and He saw the cloud moving from the west toward the east. As the crow flies He was forty miles NNE of Tucson on March 8 picking sand burrs from his trouser legs when there was a blast (Revelation 6:1) and he was caught up into the Cloud on Sunset Mountain in the Coronado Forest. The Cloud moved eastward toward Jeffersonville where the Lord told him he must return to receive the revelation of the Seven Seals. Only Brother Branham saw this Cloud; it was not a public show but for the people of faith (Revelation 10:1-4).
When the Cloud appeared on February 28 moved Prescott and Flagstaff, NW and NNW 200 miles from Tucson as the crow flies then east towards New Mexico. This public sighting in satisfaction of Psalm 19:1 was unknown to the Prophet until about May 26, 1963 – AGS].
This revised altitude takes the cloud still further above the height-interval of even Arctic nacreous clouds, and puts it disconcertingly near the base of an "exclusion region" of the mesosphere in which the temperatures are so high (due to ozone absorption of solar ultraviolet radiation) that the saturation vapour pressure of water (or ice) exceeds the total ambient air pressure. In that exclusion region (typically from about 42 km to about 65 km), no water drops or ice particles can exist. Water can be present there only in vapour form. The indicated altitude of the Flagstaff cloud is slightly above the mean base of this exclusion layer, adding further interest to the entire phenomenon.
B. Motion. Although precise photo-grammetry has not been worked out to yield final motion estimates, preliminary analysis of the McSpadden photos from Lordsburg indicate an eastward cloud drift speed of 95 mph for the upper limit, and 77 mph for the lower limit, the uncertainty being due to the unfortunate fact that, on the very first shot of this series, the time was uncertain to two minutes. An estimate of angular velocity of the cloud over Flagstaff has been made by Robert A. Schley (using subsequently-checked times of two long-distance phone calls to obtain very close time-checks on his observations, made between the calls). His angular velocity, along with the present height estimate, gives an apparent speed of 110 mph.
There have been only a few reports of early sightings of the cloud (or one like it); but these have not fitted into any consistent pattern. The motion remains a rather uncertain feature, all in all. As will be seen below, this is unfortunate, for the cloud's motion enters critically into a test of one hypothesis as to its origin. It is hoped that the ultimate photogrammetric analysis will shed further light on this point.
C. Some distant sightings. Queries have been sent out to about twenty-five small town papers in Arizona and surrounding states, and an A. P. wire story has gone much farther, asking for observational details. No sightings seem to have been made in California or Nevada, but some distant observations were reported from localities to the east. Evidently many saw it in central New Mexico, reports coming from Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Alamogordo, Truth and Consequences, and Las Cruces. It was reliably reported by a 10 woman in Center, Colorado. But the most distant sighting reliably checked was made in Juarez, Mexico, by J. H. Buels, of El Paso, Texas. Mr. Buel's location was approximately 380 miles from the cloud! . . .

The Heroin Epidemic and the News
December 1, 2016 — When you discover something that seems to you to be important but then you notice that the people who tell us what is supposed to be news are ignoring it, you know that it must be really important. I can cite a number of examples just from my own web site. Most recently we had the almost total press blackout of the justice system wrist slap of the man most responsible for the flood of illegal aliens into the country. It figures that they would black out the news of the piddling punishment that the man, Stan Eury, received, because they had blacked out his prosecution, and most of what they had reported on his operations previously had, amazingly enough, been favourable.
Before that we had their total failure to report in 2004 that the long suppressed report on the suspicious 1949 death of Secretary of Defense James Forrestal had at long last been made public. The press silence was extremely telling. They couldn't report it because it was full of information that contradicted what they had unanimously told us for 55 years, that is, that Forrestal, the leading opponent in the US government of recognition of the new state of Israel, had killed himself.
Before that, in 1997, the press had completely blacked out the news that Kenneth Starr's report on the death of deputy White House counsel Vincent W. Foster, Jr., contained, by judges' order, 20 pages that thoroughly undermined the conclusion that Foster had committed suicide. In Part 3 of my "America's Dreyfus Affair, the Case of the Death of Vincent Foster," I called it "The Great Suppression of '97."
These stories are plainly of enormous importance, and the fact that they are completely ignored by the American news media magnifies their importance. So too is the story of the heroin-death epidemic that is currently ravaging the country. In this case the news hasn't been ignored completely, but it has been spun in such a way that one would hardly realize its magnitude. In the first place, only the lesser news organs dare suggest that the sharply rising death rate in the country from drug overdoses might be coming from widely available cheap heroin. "Heroin's Death Toll Reaches Another Gruesome Landmark," a headline that appeared above an October 16, 2016, article in the leftist Mother Jones magazine is one that you will never see in The Washington Post, The New York Times, or one of their many clones around the country. The article's subtitle was even more disturbing: "Most states now lose more citizens to overdoses than to car accidents" . . . Full story: dcdave.com
First Written Mention of Jesus? 2,000-Year-Old Lead Tablets found
November 30, 2016 — The lead pages, bound like a ring binder, were first discovered in 2008 The tablets . . . proved to be around 2,000 years old . . . held together like a ring binder, were found in Jordan in around 2008 by an Jordanian Bedouin and make reference to Christ and his disciples . . .
The artefacts were found in a remote part of Jordan to which Christian refugees are known to have fled after the fall of Jerusalem in 70AD . . . testing suggests that the artefacts are indeed 2,000 years old . . . The codex was leant to the Elkingtons by the Department of Antiquities in Amman for testing. Full story: dailymail.co.uk
What the Tapes Say
Amos 5:18-20, "Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord! What good will the Day of the Lord be to you? It is darkness and not light—as if a man fled from a lion, and a bear met him, or went into the house and leaned with his hand against the wall only to have a serpent bite him. The Day of the Lord is darkness and not light, and gloom with no gleam in it?"
Amos was prophesying against those who fancied that carnal Israel and the true people of God were identical. But the Day of the Lord for which they long can only bring them harm (Isaiah 13:6-16; Joel 2:2; Zechariah 13:8-9; 14:2; Revelation 11:2; 16:19). The modern Israel state "has sown the wind, and will reap the whirlwind: the standing stalk has husk but no grain; and were it to yield, aliens would swallow it up" (Hosea 8:7). Modern Israel will be utterly defeated followed by the mass exodus of non-Semitic anti-Semitic Israeli self-styled Jews enabling the descendants of Jacob to return to the land of their Covenant for redemption. The United States and denominational churches are trading on past reputations but bearing their antitheses; after America is defeated it will unite with the apostate once Protestant Churches to form an image to the Judaeo-Roman beast as Jesus prophesied in Revelation 13:11-18.
Many Message believers have misplaced confidence in 'what the tapes say' without "proving all things" in the Absolute of God's Holy Bible. They are deceived with false hopes and would be foolish to expect deliverance in power and glory on the Day of the Lord because all Message believers are not equal. Even in the circle of this Message there are three kinds of believer, and all but the wise virgins will be cast into outer darkness, not Light; calamity and not joy. Should they escape one danger they would surely fall into another as affirmed in verse 19. Once more the threatening character of the Day of the Lord is affirmed and repeated in verse 20. In the tribulation "justice will descend like waters and righteousness like an ever flowing stream".
II Corinthians 3:6, "God has made us able ministers of the Message; not of the letter of 'what the tapes say,' but of the Spirit declaring what they mean: for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives eternal Life." Thus it is unwise to take the "letter" of any vindicated prophet of God, even Jesus Christ, without proving what the Spirit means against two or three witnesses of the Scripture. Herein the folly of two billion nominal Christians is manifest by their unscriptural baptism in three Titles.
I Corinthians 14:26-28, "Let all things be done unto edifying. If any man speaks in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, each in his turn; and let one interpret. But if there is no interpreter, let each of them keep silence in the church and speak to himself and to God." When I travel I see transcripts of Brother Branham's Message printed in the local tongue, but this is not the apostolic way. It might as well be an unknown tongue such as English because there is no interpreter: they have the "letter" in their own tongue but without the Spirit." This is a waste of time, effort and money. God's way is for the five fold ministry to apply the Message to the Bible to unlock its mysteries and preach or publish the revelation from the Bible in the local tongue.
We don't read the Bible or the Message like a newspaper. We prospect for nuggets of faith on a subject, a sentence from one Message, a paragraph from another, cross-referencing from 1,200 Messages to the Bible from Genesis to Revelation from which we deliver our Message. This was always the means of passing Life through the Body.
"It is the Spirit that quickens [the Word]; the flesh [books, learning and reasoning] profit nothing: the Words that I speak to you, they are Spirit, and they are eternal Life" (John 6:63; Matthew 16:17). "In the mouth of two or three witnesses let every word be established" (Matthew 18:16).
There must be an Absolute: in responding to questions on the Seven Seals the Prophet said, "I'm going to have to answer for this. That's right. We're too close for anything, any foolishness, or any presuming, or halfway believe. I've got to see it first. And then when I see it, it's got to be in the Word too. And so far, by the grace of God, they perfectly . . . I've took it from all the way through; you know that; it's just blended right together."
"It's got to be, THUS SAITH THE LORD, 'cause it's not only as to say it from me knowing it myself, but the Word of the Lord is THUS SAITH THE LORD. And here is the Word taking what He has give to me and blending it together and showing you, so you know yourself it's THUS SAITH THE LORD. See?" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 446:5 – 447:1).
Our Absolute is the written Word of God from Genesis to Revelation (Isaiah 8:20; Acts 17:11; Romans 3:4; Ephesians 4:5; I Thessalonians 5:21; Revelation 22:18-19). You, me and every Christian must know that we know that we know. Ministers in particular must be able to speak to people with the Holy Bible open and prove our revelation from within those pages without reference to Brother Branham: just the simplicity of God's Word.
How can a minister go out into the world, the church world, to open eyes if he has to carry a stack of Spoken Word Books to do so? Any denominational believer might interrupt him and say, The understanding you have—say Serpent's seed—is not in the Bible. This sincere man is resting on a lifetime of Bible study; he may be a minister. Whoever he is he deserves that answer from you and your Bible (I Peter 3:15), not a Book of Mormon, quotations from Mrs. White and the Jehovah Witnesses' Bible, or Brother Branham's Message. We stand or fall on the unchanging Word of God's Holy Bible.
The Prophet said, "Many times people hear from tapes, and they say, "Well, I disagree with that. He just don't know his teaching, doesn't know the Scripture." Well, that may be all true. See, I wouldn't say that isn't true, but to me, I study it, not taking any words . . . I read what other men has to say and appreciate them. And everything that anyone says, I appreciate it. But then I take it to God, and I stay with it until I can explain it from Genesis to Revelation, and then see it all hook up in the Bible, and then I know it's somewhere near right. And 'course, where you're right, that's just one place that I got off of the line at. And maybe where you're wrong or right, that's where I got off the line, and vice versa" (The Seventieth Week of Daniel, p. 77:5a).
"But I only work by revelation; the revelation has to be the Word. If it isn't according to the Word, then it's a wrong revelation" (Balm in Gilead #61-0218).
"Now, we want to read a text tonight, or read a Scripture reading out of the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. And I believe that this is the Revelation of Jesus Christ as written in the Book. And any other revelation that would be contrary to this revelation would be wrong. I believe that would bear quoting again. Any revelation that will not fit in with this revelation and bring this revelation to Light is the wrong revelation; it must be Scriptural" (Sirs, Is This The Time, p. 6:2).
"And that's what's the matter in the Christian faith today; we've got too many traffic jams, everybody making their own absolute, when we've got one Absolute and that's the Word of the living God that settles it forever, no matter what anyone else says. It's almost gotten to a place like it was in the days of Judges. Everybody has their own absolute, but it all fails, like the Pharaohs and so forth. But God's absolute is His Word. He gives it, and "heavens and earth will pass away, but It shall never pass away [or change]." I like that" (A Absolute #64-0304; Matthew 24:36; Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8).
"Now, why can't people believe the simple simplicity of a humble bunch of people (see) and the Voice of the signs of God? Why can't they believe it? Just like it always been. The true Word of God being made manifest. They're too smart and too educated to believe the simple form of the written Word. They want to put their own interpretation to it. "It don't mean this. It don't mean that." See? It does mean that".
"Listen. May I say this right quick now? Even the visions that God gives here at the place, it's so misunderstood. That's the reason you hear me on the tapes say, "Say what the tapes say. Say what the visions say" (God in Simplicity, p. 59:6-7).
Notice, Brother Branham distinguished MEANING from SAYING. It does not matter what Jesus, Brother Branham, Paul or any of God's prophets have SAID. There is no Life in the letter without the Spirit, and everybody who hears or reads what these prophets have SAID ultimately ends up with a MEANING. In a certain country I found hundreds of Message churches believing many more MEANINGS (or understandings) of what the Prophet SAID. So when he said "Say what the tapes say. Say what the visions say," this was not what he meant. Look in your Bible where Jesus or Paul or Isaiah or Jeremiah quote a previous prophet, they either quote what he SAID then say what he MEANT or they modify what he SAID to show what he MEANS in context of "the present Truth." I seldom quote Scripture verbatim but endeavour to draw out the MEANING. What use is the written or spoken Word if we lack "the common faith" by the Holy Spirit which is the mind of Christ? Matthew 28:19, Luke 24:47 and Acts 2:38-39 each differ in what they SAY but agree in a common MEANING.
In the world church system there are scores of thousands of denominations, with more understandings of THUS SAITH THE LORD, and like Caiaphas, the Scribes, Pharisees, Sadducees and theologians who crucified the Lord of glory these are all in error.
This confusion persists in the mainstream of the Message because ministers have great confidence in discerning what is THUS SAITH THE LORD without reference to the Absolute of God's unchanging Word from Genesis to Revelation yet we have three witnesses that agree in one: the Zodiac or "Witness of the Stars," "The Bible in Stone" or Great Pyramid, and the Bible printed in your own language. Thousands of Message believers—all "Saying what the tapes say," proved the late Brother Joseph Coleman's unscriptural seven thunders hypothesis. Other believers resolved that William Branham is Jesus Christ; his daughter Sarah was baptized in her father's name. Others "saying what the tapes say," teach that the prophet must resurrect and resume his ministry. One group purchased a marquee and a semi-trailer to transport it while another group purchased an old airliner and had a pilot on standby to fly around the world and pick up those who would be in the 'rapture'—as if the Creator needed human help. Others take the quotes to demonstrate THUS SAITH THE LORD Daniel's Seventieth Week is three and a half years when it is seven. Other experienced ministers believe Two Souls, or replacement rather than redemption of souls. Two ministers skipped Daniel's Seventieth Week, Armageddon, the millennium, general resurrection and white throne judgment and see us in the Eighth Day, which is eternity. Others think we are all physical Serpent's seed, while others believe there is now no physical Serpent's seed . . . based on the quotes of God's vindicated prophet, of course. Most believe Jews are Israelites—blood brothers—God's Chosen people, and that they have already returned to the Promised Land when the Bible tells us they will not return until the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. Many Message believers imagine Israel's two witnesses will be preach Brother Branham's Message in the Seventieth Week and that they will be the original Moses and Elijah who although they are glorified must somehow be martyred. Some believe the Seventh Seal is not yet revealed; others, that the Absolute is William Branham's Message while some ministers do not preach but listen to "what the tapes say." God is not the Author of this confusion based on "what the tapes say" according to human reasoning without "proving all things" by the Absolute of God's written Word, the Holy Bible.
When the Church Ages, redemption and Christ's Mediation were fulfilled in 1963, many in the circle of this Message would not endure sound doctrine and gathered around teachers who tickled their ears by "saying what the tapes say" but turned from the Absolute of God's written Word and what the prophet meant unto fables. When men preach a montage of Message quotes they invariably end up preaching "another gospel which is not another" (II Corinthians 11:4; Galatians 1:6-9). The end-time Message is the Key that unlocks the hidden mysteries of the written Word, it is not the Key that unlocks and expounds the Spoken Word, causing it to supersede and replace the written Word.
We must take the spoken Word to the written Word to ensure we have the mind of the Spirit when He spoke through His Prophet and then teach and preach that revelation from God's Holy Bible. We are living in the time Brother Branham called "the investigation judgment" or "temporary judgment" for the Seventh Vial; our last opportunity to ensure we are faithful to our Husband and Lord.
Jesus told Peter, "Flesh and blood [books, learning] have not revealed this to you but My Father who is in heaven . . . and on this rock [of revelation] I will build My Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against faith. And what you speak by faith God will do." This is your 'third pull' based on THUS SAITH THE LORD, not the guesswork of human reasoning.
"Familiarity breeds contempt" yet many in the circle of this Message take faith for granted, but because we now have the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication Christ is no longer a mediator "winking" at ignorance. "We must study to make our calling and election sure," proving all things. The wise and foolish virgin both believe the Message but the foolish lack its revelation, probably because they are slothful or dilatory.
As Brother Branham spoke in colloquial English he generally said "Jew" when meant Israelite. What percentage of Message believers realize that this modern word did not appear in any Bible in any language prior to the latter half of the eighteenth century? Or that its meaning is contrary to the two different words it has replaced? And that the majority of so-called Jews are non-Semitic impostors with no history in the Middle East? The lie is so close to the Truth "that if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect" (Matthew 24:24; Genesis 3:1-15; II Corinthians 11:3; II Thessalonians 2:10-12; Revelation 2:9; 3:9). Without understanding what the record of history and the Scriptures "say" you will not understand what Brother Branham meant.
In the Seventh Seal he said, "All the Father hath (past tense) given Me, they'll come. They'll come to Me" [John 6:37]. Oh, my, I love that. Yes, sir. Notice, the believers does believe it. The unbelievers can't believe it. So now, if anybody wants to argue about the Serpent's seed and things [such as the true oneness of the godhead and Scriptural water baptism] and you try to show them, they won't listen to it, just walk away. Leave them alone. See, God don't argue, neither does His children. See, see?"
"Notice, God's one hundred and forty-four thousand elected
JewsIsraelites don't bow to the beast, his denominationalism, statues, or anything. Though their nation is in a covenant with it at the time, Israel is in a covenant [Isaiah 28:18; Daniel 8:13; 9:27; Revelation 11:2-7], but here's a hundred and forty-four thousand that's not going to do it. That's the elected".
"Same thing it is right here in the Gentile church now. It's an elected group. You can't pull them in that kind of stuff. They won't believe it. No, sir. The Light once struck them, that settles it right then. They see it happen, and then see it vindicated and proved, and like that, and they look down here in the Bible and see that Word" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 548:1-3).
Notice "the tape said Jews," however there will be no "Jew" in the 144,000 as defined by this modern word but there will be 12,000 "Judahites" and 12,000 descendants of pure blood of Jacob from each of the other tribes: some will be "Judeans" and all will be Israelites living in the Land of the Covenant. The 1611 translation of the Bible Authorised by King James did not contain the word "Jew" which was inserted in the 1769 revision. Remember, "The things that the preacher is liable to teach yer, ain't necessarily so," which is why Paul and Brother Branham admonished us to follow the example of those noble Bereans who "received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so" (Acts 17:11).
When asked the question, "Who is Israel? – Who is a Jew?" the Israeli Government's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) answered thus: "The term Israelite is purely Biblical. An Israeli is a citizen of Israel, regardless of religion. A Jew is a person anywhere in the world born to a Jewish mother, or converted to Judaism, who is thus identified as a member of the Jewish people and religion."
Notice here that the Jews themselves clearly imply that the term "Israelite" and "Jew" are separate and distinct and where Jews have no relation whatsoever with the Biblical Noahic bloodline. Also note the use of subterfuge admonished by the Talmud, Baba Kama 113a, note 34. "'Where a suit arises between an Israelite and a heathen, if you can justify the former according to the laws of Israel, justify him and say: 'This is our law'; so also if you can justify him by the laws of the heathens justify him and say [to the other party:] 'This is your law'; but if this cannot be done, we use subterfuges to circumvent him 34." The learned elders are of course aware they are neither Hebrews, nor Israelites, or even Semites, and as they devised the subterfuge of the modern word "Jew," they have devised the new word "Israeli" knowing this will go over the heads of us Goyim who never study our Bibles, history, or our prophets.
In fact, under the heading "A Brief History of the Terms for Jew," in the 1980 Jewish Almanac, on page 3 we find the following incredible admission:
"Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an Ancient Israelite a 'Jew' or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew." Today, to trace anyone's descent to ancient Palestine would be a genealogical impossibility. The Jewish racial myth flows from the fact that the words 'Hebrew,' 'Israelite,' 'Jew,' 'Judaism,' and the 'Jewish people' have been used synonymously to suggest a historic continuity, but this is a gross misuse. The descriptive name Judaism was never heard by the Hebrews or Israelites; it appears only within modern Christianity. The English abbreviation, 'Jew,' is recent and does not correspond to anything denoted by the Aramaic, Greek or Roman terms for 'Judahite' or 'Judean,' which were in use during the lifetime of Jesus. In fact, according to Reporting Guidelines for the Australian Press Council, General Press Release No. 49 (issued June 1982) with reference to the word "Race" as applied to Jews. "The Press Council wishes to alert editors to a common mistake. There is no "Jewish race". Judaism is not a race but a religion. There are Caucasian Jews, Mongolian Jews, Oriental Jews, Semitic Jews and so on—terms defining both racial origin and religion. The Council asks all editors and sub-editors to watch for this error . . ."
During Christ's lifetime, no persons were described as "Jews" anywhere. This very important FACT is supported by sound theology, suppressed historical truth and science. When Jesus was in Judea, it was not the "homeland" of the ancestors of those who today style themselves as "Jews." Their ancestors never set-foot anywhere near Judea. They existed at that time in Asia, their true "homeland", and were known as Chazars, or Turkish Mongols. Banned author Douglas Reed, in his superbly researched classic, "Controversy of Zion," writes: "No authority, Judaist or other, would support the claim to blood decent from Judah for the so-called Jews of today." In fact, the Palestinians would have more claim to the racial description, 'Semite,' than any within modern Jewry who are of Eastern-European stock and trace their lineage back to the ancient Asiatic kingdom of the Chazar".
In his book "What Price Israel," Alfred M. Lilienthal wrote: "Here's a paradox, a paradox, a most ingenious paradox: and anthropological fact, many Christians may have much more Hebrew-Israelite blood in their veins than most of their Jewish neighbours." We must each possess Bible faith; eternal Life will not be found in "Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth" (Titus 1:14).
Do you realize this Pillar of Cloud (pictured right) appeared to the public over Flagstaff on February 28, 1963 to fulfil Psalm 19:1 (click image to enlarge)? It manifest a second time over Mount Sunset on about March 8, 1963, seen only by the seventh angel, Brother Branham, who was caught up to complete a constellation of the redeemed (Revelation 5:8-14) with the theophanies of the previous six Angels forming the Cloud in fulfilment of Revelation 10:1-4 as explained in Newsletter 752. Unless you see this revelation you will not understand there were two events, dates and places. Brother Branham's visions and the spiritual dreams of particular individuals pertained to the manifestation on March 8 when Christ opened the Seven Seals for us believers, not to the public display on February 28 although it was the same Pillar of Cloud.
Faith is a clear understanding of God's unchanging Word;, it is the mind of Christ in us. Without the Rock of revelation from Above we are without "the keys to the kingdom of heaven" or new birth, so you will appreciate that the "letter" only of what Moses, Jesus Christ, Paul and William Branham's tapes "say" is not enlightening prophecy but "as noisy brass or a tinkling cymbal" that can condemn us to hell fire unless we understand and live what the Holy Spirit means. Without faith our hope is built on sand (Matthew 16:13-19; I Corinthians 3:10-15).
Permit me to illustrate how "saying what the tapes say" can shake not only your conscience but without the "Spirit" to reveal what they mean, might one day shake your confidence in the Message, the Prophet, and God Himself.
The third holocaust or extermination (of six million Jews claimed in just the 20th century) was not announced until the Eichmann Trial in 1961. The Yiddish-speaking crypto Jew Adolf Eichmann was abducted from Argentina by Israeli agents in May, 1960, sentenced to death by an Israeli court in December, 1961, and hanged in 1962.
So much emphasis is placed on select Jewish participation in Martin Bormann companies that when Adolf Eichmann was seized and taken to Tel Aviv to stand trial, it produced a shock wave in the Jewish and German communities of Buenos Aires. Jewish leaders informed the Israeli authorities in no uncertain terms that this must never happen again because a repetition would permanently rupture relations with the Germans of Latin America, as well as with the Bormann organization, and cut off the flow of Jewish money to Israel. It never happened again, and the pursuit of Bormann quieted down at the request of these Jewish leaders. He is residing in an Argentinean safe haven, protected by the most efficient German infrastructure in history as well as by all those whose prosperity depends on his well-being.
When WWII ended, it was announced that Jews had been gassed in all concentration camps. (Old newsreels attesting to this appear in the "David Cole at Auschwitz" video.) However, American doctors made forensic examinations and found that all had died of either disease, (mainly typhus), cold, starvation, etc. Not a single corpse had been gassed. [In most cases cyanide poisoning causes Livor mortis, a deceptively healthy pink to red skin colour; severe permeation can produce systemic toxicity]. The story was then changed so that all of the mass exterminations by gassing took place at five concentration camps in Soviet occupied Poland. However, the Communists refused to allow any neutral experts into the camps to examine the claim. Poor defeated Germany was permitted no opportunity to defend itself against such a monstrous charge as exterminating six million Jews!
To my knowledge Brother Branham's first mention of the holocaust (so-called) was in his Message Uncertain Sound in Bloomington, Illinois (61-0415e), and "this is what the tape says":
"And this man that's on trial, this German now—smart, intelligent, intellectual giant . . . And take this Eichmann, that's froze them people to death, then throwed hot water on them, and killed the millions and . . . When I was in Germany, there in those places where they took them out there and give them that bubble in their veins (Hitler), and sent them out there . . . And smart, educated, scientists, way beyond . . . Why, we was . . . Half the war was over before we ever had a gun that could compare with their 88. What about you soldiers that faced it? You know that's right. Why we . . . They were so far ahead of us in science, and smart, and everything like that—and would turn and do a thing like that, it's insanity."
It is high time that believers in the circle of this Message understood there were no 'execution gas chambers' at Auschwitz or in any German internment camp anywhere. The guilty are projecting their psychosis upon the innocent. There was no holocaust of six million Jews as claimed in World War I; Jewish ruled USSR did not exterminate six million Jews between the wars as claimed, and the so-called holocaust of six million Jews in World War II is a BIG LIE. The International Red Cross audit to January 16, 1984 found 282,077 registered deaths of all internees in ALL German Concentration Camps from ALL causes (3 copies of documents were registered for deaths from natural causes, 23 copies of documents were required for deaths from other causes).
According to Aleksdandr Solzhenitsyn the extermination of six million Jews by Judaeo-Communist Russia between the wars was the real genocide of 66 million Christians by Jewish-ruled USSR which continued from 1918 to at least 1957. As an article from Veterans Today, and the documentary video "Hellstorm" attest, the atrocities of World War II were NOT committed by Germany but the Jewish-controlled Allies, Britain and France, but primarily the USSR and the USA. For example, three Jewish traitors—Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin made a secret agreement at Yalta to repatriate numerous Red Army soldiers and their families to the USSR and martyrdom. They had defected in hopes of joining General Andrey Vlasov's army in a coup against the murderous Jewish tyrant Stalin. Using trickery and force, British, American, and French MPs rounded up men, women, and children to help Stalin continue his genocide of the Russian people.
We must "prove all things" as commanded by Jesus, Paul and William Branham (I Thessalonians 5:21), including what they taught so that we don't parrot their words but understand what the Spirit means. Here is the history of the mythical holocausts of six million Jews dating from the nineteenth century! This BIG LIE is perpetuated as cover for Allied atrocities, the extortion racket Professor Norman Finkelstein calls "The Holocaust Industry," and to justify the theft of the Land of the Covenant by non-Semitic impersonators of the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Israel and Semitic Palestinians.
God's actions of purpose for His glory and the good of His elect are an enigma to the natural man. He commanded Abraham to sacrifice his only son, a type of God sending His Son bearing His cross to Calvary. He sent Jonah to Nineveh with a Message of repentance: Jonah ran away, yet he disembarked from the mouth of their pagan god, establishing the sign of Christ's resurrection, and the Ninevites repented. Jesus' most trusted disciple Judas Iscariot sold Him to Jewry and death, demonstrating one can be justified and sanctified and operate all spiritual gifts and be reprobate and Lost.
In our day He sent Brother Branham with a Message, and at the time of the Eichmann trial and His Prophet repeated the newspaper talk concerning the so-called holocaust of World War II (Revelation Chapter Four, Part II, p. 609:140-141; Feast of the Trumpets, p. 23:175; The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 369:3). This BIG LIE aptly describes Eisenhower's Death Camps for Germans, and the propaganda of Hollywood Jews; but the Prophet said, "Like the Dutchman, you take me for what I really mean and not what I say" (One in a Million, p. 4:22). Think first, and prove all things, only then will the Truth make you free.
Seek to have the mind of Christ by understanding what the Prophet was revealing, sifting the Seed of God's Word from the husk and chaff (Luke 8:11). "The Prophet said the Message will go forth, but it'll just go right on over. Just like He said, "Some fell by the wayside, and some this way, but some went over" [Matthew 13:18-23). And a lot of it's just filler, to fill in the time. Millions of people that's professing Christianity will miss it a million miles" (Testimony on the Sea, #62-0720).
If it would not have been for US support in food and war material, the Soviets would have collapsed long before 1945 (Guenter).
"In retrospect, if it were not obvious at the time, the bloodthirsty tyrant Stalin and his Kommissar-run regime was the enemy, and Germany, civilized and compatible, was our logical ally. Treacherously, in response to Zionist paymasters and anti-German vengeful hate-mongers, we took Stalin's side and made war on our German kin. Had we joined Germany in a NATO-style alliance, the Soviet Union would have been defeated and pacified in probably a few months, the ethnic communities liberated under European hegemony and tens of millions of lives saved (to say nothing of the subsequent incalculable benefits of an easily-enforceable world peace). The yielding to Jewish pressure by venal British and French politicians to destroy Germany was by far the most tragic and monstrous miscalculation of all time. The inevitable defeat is to be mourned, not celebrated" (Ian Macdonald).
But the Talmud, Judaeo-Communism and the Judaeo-Roman church demand global hegemony. Defeated in 1688, England has since been ruled by an alien nation state, the City of London. Imperial Rome transformed into papal Rome that rules from Vatican City State, a foreign power, while the united States are ruled by the foreign sovereign state, Washington DC. "So you see, my dear Conningsby, the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes." . . . "Governments do not govern, but merely control the machinery of government, being themselves controlled by the hidden hand" (Britain's first Jewish Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli, Conningsby, p. 294-252).
On Sunday Nisan 16, AD30, two of Jesus' apostles who had not believed the report of His resurrection set off to walk to the village of Emmaus, some seven miles from Jerusalem. And as they spoke and reasoned all that had happened, Jesus Himself drew near, and walked with them. "But their eyes were holden that they should not know Him." And He said, "What are these matters you are discussing as you walk, and are so very sad?" They told him they had expected Jesus would have redeemed Israel and how the women had found the tomb empty but not seen Him. Their words seemed like idle tales so they disbelieved them, and their hopes were dashed.
Then Jesus said, "O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Was it not necessary for Christ to suffer these things and to enter into His glory?" And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He expounded all the things concerning Himself from the Scriptures. And they approached the village and He acted as though He would go further. But they constrained Him, saying, Stay with us: for it is almost evening, and the day is far spent. So He went in with them, and it came to pass as He reclined at table, He took bread, and blessed it, and breaking it, He began giving it to them. "And their eyes were opened, and they recognized Him; and He vanished from their sight" And they said to one another, "Did not our heart burn within us, while He talked with us by the way, and while He opened the Scriptures to us" (Luke 24:10-32)?
Jesus' disciples have played the fool in this our day by "saying what the tapes say" without proving all things by the mouth of two or three witnesses. Did not the Lord command Moses to forbid the Israelites from marrying those who call themselves Jews today (Deuteronomy 7:1-3)? Did not their high priest, King John Hyrcanus I forcibly assimilate them in 129BC. And did not Jesus call them liars (John 8:44)? This being established by Scripture, history and the Message of the Prophet, what is the name of the spirit that has inspired you to believe the BIG LIE of the third holocaust or extermination of six million Jews in the past century? It is more than seventy since World War II and no country has the technology to exterminate the population of, say Sydney and Melbourne in three years secretly without trace.
Jesus told them their holy book makes the commandments of God of none effect (Matthew 15:1-9). Are you not aware their lewd holy book claims the Romans wrapped 64 million Jewish children in scrolls and burned them alive (Gittin 58a)? And that Vespasian killed 4 billion Jews in Bethar (Gittin 57b), and Hadrian slaughtered 1.2 million Jews in Alexandria. By comparison the fraudulent claims against Germany are insignificant chutzpah.
Brethren, the end of the Gentile dispensation is upon us. We have foolish virgin a-plenty: the tribulation is at the door to purge them but where are the wise virgins? Can't you see that Brother Branham's understanding was "holden" by the Lord to repeat the BIG LIE of Jewry and the traitors that rule our apostate (once) Christian nations. Unbeknownst to himself the Lord caused Brother Branham to parrot these egregious lies for your sakes. Had he not been yielded to the Spirit common sense, his gift of discernment and personal integrity would have caused him to speak truth, expose the lie and face murder before "the mystery of God was finished".
Christ's promise to the saints of the Philadelphian Church Age was, "He that overcomes I will make a pillar in the Temple of My God, and he shall go out no more . . ." The left-hand pillar on the porch of Solomon's temple was named Boaz, which means "strength," while that on the right-hand was named Jachin, which means "God will establish"; conjointly "In strength will I establish this mine House that it stand fast forever." The promises to the overcomer of each Church Age are cumulative so this is also a promise to His end-time Bride who are God's House.
We live under the Seventh Vial of the antitype of Israel's Ordeal of Jealousy in Numbers 5. You who are God's House will be established in strength by faith in His Word before Los Angeles sinks. The rest will submit in the "squeeze"; those still believing the BIG LIE will fall as has no foundation in the Absolute of God's written Word. Carnal men and women fully versed in the "letter" of the Message, many of them former believers without the "Spirit," have built an armoury against you who have not prepared your soul but squandered God's grace. Remember Revelation 3:17-20? Some of these people are trying to do God a service without it being His will; the weapons of their warfare are carefully designed to shake your memory, affection, imagination, reasoning and conscience and plant doubt in God's prophet and his Message, and strip what little faith you possess. They will succeed unless you yield so that God can establish you in the strength of His Word by faith.
I am WARNING you that confronted with their work those who are not pillars in the Lord's Temple will be deceived: in the great tribulation they will either endure martyrdom, or take the Mark of the beast and be smitten from the Book of Life. May God bless you as you redeem the time. nl952.htm
