Bible Believers' Newsletter 993
"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 see you in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
Today we visit Matthew chapter 13 which reviews the two spirits working within Christendom throughout the Gentile dispensation. One is incarnating His "little flock," the other gathering spiritual, political, and demonic power over a mighty church empire that will shortly rule the world. You will note that in each of His six parables Jesus addresses an election of "us," who by revelation of God's Spirit understand what He is saying, and "them," who hear His parables without comprehension. Paul made the difference and said, "beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, although we thus speak".
Jesus is "persuaded better things of us" so we must carefully study the main article in each Newsletter, as well as the News Items, devoting time, prayer and effort to ensure we understand the hidden mysteries Jesus is unfolding to show us clearly all seven Church Ages are over, and that He has called His end-time Bride out of the churches which are destined for the great tribulation.
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.
Analysis by Analogy: Myanmar is not Syria
September 27, 2017 — In Myanmar, while the US and its Saudi partners are apparently fuelling militancy among the Rohingya population, it was the US itself who for decades built up the political networks of the current ruling regime, with Aung San Suu Kyi a whole-cloth creation of Western media narratives, immense funding and political support, and a carefully crafted facade to obfuscate from the public for decades the true, nationalist and even genocidal nature of Suu Kyi's supposedly "Buddhist nationalist" support base.
An extensive 2006 report by Burma Campaign UK titled, "Failing the People of Burma?" (PDF), would reveal how virtually every facet of Myanmar's current government is a creation of Western political and financial support . . . local NGOs underwritten by US State Department cash, or violence covertly backed by the US and its intermediaries, have attempted to systematically disrupt Chinese infrastructure projects around the globe, including in Myanmar. Chinese-built dams in Myanmar are opposed by networks of US-funded NGOs, militant groups accused of receiving US backing have attacked Chinese projects throughout the nation, and the current conflict in Rakhine fuelled on both sides by the US threaten to not only derail Chinese projects there, but may even serve as a pretext for positioning Western forces inside Myanmar—a nation that directly borders China.
Placing American forces—in any capacity—along China's borders has been a long-term stated goal of US policymakers for decades. From the Vietnam War-era Pentagon Papers to the 2000 Project for a New American Century report, "Rebuilding America's Defenses," to former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's "Pivot to Asia" policy, a singular theme of encircling and containing China either with client states obedient to Washington, or chaos all along China's peripheries . . .

A Failing Empire: Russia and China's Military Strategy to contain US
September 25, 2017 — One of the most tangible consequences of the decline of US military power can be observed in the Syrian conflict. Over the past few weeks, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies have completed the historic and strategic liberation of Deir ez-Zor, a city besieged for more than five years by Islamists belonging to [US recruited, funded, trained and armed] Al Qaeda and Daesh. The focus has now shifted to the oilfields south of the liberated city, with a frantic rush by both the US-supported Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) [i.e. Al Qaeda, Daesh, CIA, Special Forces] and the SAA to free territories still held by Daesh . . . Without a military posture capable of bending adversaries and friends to her will, the US will have to start dealing with a new reality that involves compromise and negotiation . . .
Another indicator of American decline in military terms can be clearly seen on the Korean peninsula. The DPRK has obtained a full nuclear capability through a development program that has paid scant attention to American, South Korean and Japanese threats. The imperative for Pyongyang was to create a nuclear deterrent capable of dissuading the desire of many US policymakers to enact regime change in North Korea . . . the strategy of containment and encirclement of the People's Republic of China, a failed doctrine well known as the Asian pivot.
Kim Jong-un, as well as Assad and other world leaders facing pressure from Washington, have fully understood and taken advantage of America's declining military power. Trump and his close circle of generals are full of empty threats . . . One can only shudder on imagining a Clinton presidency in the current environment . . . Russian military power and Chinese economic might have thus played an invaluable role in restricting the US war machine. The DPRK even took a further step by attaining a formidable nuclear and conventional deterrent, effectively blocking the United States from influencing domestic events by bringing about destruction and chaos.

Syrian People knew that this War was to Eliminate their Country
September 25, 2017 — Syria and its people are victims of US aggression—ISIS and like-minded terrorists used as imperial foot soldiers, along with Pentagon-led terror-bombing since September 2014, massacring tens of thousands of civilians, destroying vital infrastructure on the phony pretext of combating the Islamic State Washington supports.
Syrian Deputy Prime Minister Walid al-Moualem used his UN address to blast America and its rogue allies, while expressing gratitude to Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah for their vital support—combating the scourge of terrorism Washington supports . . .
Moualem blasted the so-called US-led coalition, massacring "innocent civilians . . . destroy(ing) vital infrastructure," using banned weapons, supplying Chemical Weapons to terrorists, Syria falsely blamed when they're used. Moualem criticized the UN's "failure to uphold its own Charter and the principles of international law"—failing to condemn US-led aggression on Syria, complicit in its war crimes through silence, falsely blaming Damascus for responsibly defending the country and its people . . .

Diplomatic Flights used as Cover for Arms Trafficking to Terrorists
September 17, 2017 — Dilyana Gaytandzhieva is a Bulgarian investigative journalist. In December 2016, she visited liberated neighbourhoods of Aleppo where she found Bulgarian-made weapons inside underground warehouses belonging to terrorists. She felt suspicious and traced those weapons to its Bulgarian manufacturer realizing that they were legally exported to Saudi Arabia, which in turn supplied them to terrorists in Syria. As a result of further investigation she discovered that this was just a small part of a bigger international scheme. FNA has conducted an interview with Dilyana Gaytandzhieva about the result of her investigation into the use of diplomatic flights for supplying weapons to terrorists . . . Full story: farsnews.com
Comment: The West's 'Peaceful Revolution' Narrative in Syria was a lie from the beginning
ISIS is commanded by Donald Trump
September 24, 2017 — ISIS positions north of Deir Ezzor manned by US Special Forces. Photos prove America is ISIS. Gordon Duff went to the Russian ministry of defense to get the best quality photos, as they are needed to drive home two messages. One is that we have photographic proof of US advisers, Special Ops, or whatever you want to call them seeming to be able to operate inside and/or near ISIS held areas.
Or two, these ISIS held areas can sometimes be SDF people dressed up as ISIS, depending what central casting in Hollywood has called up for the extras to dress as for the day.
But there is a third questions. The Russians have obviously had these photos for days and maybe even weeks now, so why have they been hiding them at this critical stage of the war with the SDF now coming deep into traditional Arab territory in what is clearly an army of conquest now, with the US fully onboard . . . Full story: veteranstoday.com
Comment: (Russian sources speak of the destruction of 850 fighters, 11 tanks, three infantry fighting vehicles, 46 armed pickup trucks, five mortars, 20 freighter trucks and 38 ammo supply points; you can see photos of the destroyed personnel and equipment here). . . Head of the Main Operations Department at Russia's General Staff Colonel General Sergei Rudskoi declared that:
"Despite agreements signed in Astana on September 15, gunmen of Jabhat al-Nusra and joining them units that don't want to comply with the cessation of hostilities terms, launched a large-scale offensive against positions of government troops north and northeast of Hama in Idlib de-escalation zone from 8 am on September 19 . . . initiated by American intelligence services to stop a successful advance of government troops east of Deir ez-Zor".
Today, other Russian officials have added a not-so-veiled threat to this accusation. The Russian Defense Ministry's spokesman, Major General Igor Konashenkov has declared that:
Russia unequivocally told the commanders of US forces in Al Udeid Airbase (Qatar) that it will not tolerate any shelling from the areas where the SDF are stationed . . . Fire from positions in regions [controlled by the [US recruited, funded, trained and armed] SDF] will be suppressed by all means necessary.
This is unprecedented on many levels. First, the Russians clearly believe that this attempt to kill or capture a platoon of the Russian military police was planned by the United States. The fact that they are making this accusation officially shows the degree of irritation felt by the Russians about the duplicity of the Americans. Second, this is the first time, at least to my knowledge, that Russian Spetsnaz forces had to be sent in to rescue a surrounded Russian subunit. All Spetsnaz operators survived, but three of them were wounded in the operation (the Russians are not saying how badly). The close air support by very low flying SU-25 aircraft was obviously coordinated by Spetsnaz forward air controllers and probably saved the day. In other words, this was a close call and things could have ended much more badly (just imagine what the Takfiri crazies would have done, on video, to any captured Russian serviceman!). Finally, a US-organized attack on what was supposed to be a "de-confliction" zone combined with an attempt to capture Russian soldiers raises the bar for American duplicity to a totally new level (thesaker.is).
The Iran 'Nuclear Deal' leads to War, not Peace
September 25, 2017 — The US finds itself overtly consolidating its positions in the Middle East at a time when the global balance of power teeters dangerously close to irrevocably undoing American hegemony.
Preparing the Middle East for war with Iran has been a work-in-progress since the end of the Cold War. It is an agenda that has transcended multiple US presidencies and has included everything from US-backed terrorism in the form of organizations like Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK), to US-backed colour revolutions like the "Green Revolution" in 2009, to the current proxy war being waged against Syria and the ongoing diplomatic manoeuvering surrounding the Iranian "nuclear deal."
Radical shifts in US policy regarding Iran are not owed to new occupants in the White House, but rather the shifting geopolitical realities as the US declines and other nations incrementally rise upon the world stage. Today, the US has exhausted its international clout, repeatedly abused international mechanisms for conflict resolution, and is openly pursuing a war in Syria with the aid of militant groups internationally designated as terrorist organizations. As its ability to wage war against Iran behind a smokescreen of legitimacy dwindles, the likelihood of it openly carrying out an act of aggression increases.
US policymakers may hope that after consolidating its positions in the Middle East, it can carry out a single, sweeping act of military aggression Iran's allies will be unable or unwilling to contest. Desperate hegemons are dangerous hegemons. Full story: globalresearch.ca

'Unlimited Imperialism,' History of American Militarism: Light at the End of the Tunnel?
September 26, 2017 — It is the Unlimited Imperialists along the line of Alexander, Rome, Napoleon and Hitler who are now in charge of conducting American foreign policy . . .
Historically this latest eruption of American militarism at the start of the 21st Century is akin to that of America opening the 20th Century by means of the US-instigated Spanish-American War in 1898. Then the Republican administration of President William McKinley stole their colonial empire from Spain in Cuba, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Philippines; inflicted a near genocidal war against the Filipino people; while at the same time illegally annexing the Kingdom of Hawaii and subjecting the Native Hawaiian people (who call themselves the Kanaka Maoli) to genocidal conditions. Additionally, McKinley's military and colonial expansion into the Pacific was also designed to secure America's economic exploitation of China pursuant to the euphemistic rubric of the "open door" policy. But over the next four decades America's aggressive presence, policies, and practices in the so-called "Pacific" Ocean would ineluctably pave the way for Japan's attack at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, and thus America's precipitation into the ongoing Second World War. Today a century later the serial imperial aggressions launched, waged, and menaced by the neoconservative Republican Bush Junior administration then the neoliberal Democratic Obama administration and now the reactionary Trump administration threaten to set off World War III.
By shamelessly exploiting the terrible tragedy of 11 September 2001, the Bush Junior administration set forth to steal a hydrocarbon empire from the Muslim States and Peoples of Colour living in Central Asia and the Middle East and Africa under the bogus pretexts of
(1) fighting a war against "international terrorism" or "Islamic fundamentalism"; and/or
(2) eliminating weapons of mass destruction; and/or
(3) the promotion of democracy; and/or
(4) self-styled humanitarian intervention and its avatar "responsibility to protect" (R2P) . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

North Korea versus the United States: Who are the Demons?
September 24, 2017 — The American people should, in the words of Vietnam War Veteran Brian Willson "place themselves in the position of people living in targeted countries. That North Korea, a nation of 24 million people, i.e., one-twentieth the population of the US, many of them poor, a land slightly larger in area than the US state of Pennsylvania, continues to be one of the most demonized nations and least understood, totally perplexes the Korean people."
What most people in America do not know—and which is particularly relevant when assessing the "threats" of the DPRK to World peace—is that North Korea lost thirty percent of its population as a result of US led bombings in the 1950s. US military sources confirm that 20 percent of North Korea's population was killed off over a three period of intensive bombings:
"After destroying North Korea's 78 cities and thousands of her villages, and killing countless numbers of her civilians, [General] LeMay remarked, "Over a period of three years or so we killed off—what—twenty percent of the population." It is now believed that the population north of the imposed 38th Parallel lost nearly a third its population of 8 – 9 million people during the 37-month long "hot" war, 1950 – 1953, perhaps an unprecedented percentage of mortality suffered by one nation due to the belligerence of another." (quoted in Richard Rhodes, "The General and World War III," The New Yorker, June 19, 1995, p. 53.)
In comparison, during the Second World War the United Kingdom lost 0.94% of its population, France lost 1.35%, China lost 1.89% and the US lost 0.32%. During the Korean war, North Korea lost 30 % of its population, which means that every single family in North Korea lost a loved one in the course of the Korean War.
These figures of civilian deaths in North Korea should also be compared to those compiled for Iraq by the Lancet Study (John Hopkins School of Public Health). The Lancet study estimated a total of 655,000 Iraqi civilian deaths, following the US led invasion (March 2003 - June 2006).
The US never apologized for having killed 30 percent of North Korea's population. Quite the opposite. The main thrust of US foreign policy has been to demonize the victims of US led wars.
For more than half a century, Washington has contributed to the political isolation and impoverishment of North Korea. Moreover, US sponsored sanctions on Pyongyang have contributed to destabilizing the country's economy.
North Korea has been portrayed as part of an "axis of evil". For what? . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
President Trump's Bluster at the United Nations
September 22, 2017 — If the North Korean leader is smart, which he is, he should speed up its nuclear program to defend his country and his people' safety against the "Rocket Man" in Washington. Kim Jong-un doesn't threaten the US with annihilation; it's the other way around . . . Trump's praise of the US constitution and all the US niceties as the outmost mankind could achieve. And "a small group of rogue regimes that violate every principle on which the United Nations is based." Trump must have forgotten how the Bush/Cheney regime disdained the UN and trampled around the values of this organization. The George W. Bush regime violated every international law. How come that a nation that out of its 241 years of existence was 220 years at war? Why do the US need 900 military basis around the world? Are they for spreading peace and democracy or conquest?
Trump used fierce language against North Korea. He castigated the regime that threatens the entire world with its nuclear weapons. In fact, the North Korean leader doesn't threaten the world with annihilation like Trump did in his speech. The country just wants to be respected and recognized as a nuclear power such as Israel, which is a nuclear power but the major powers don't waste any words on it . . . out of its 241 years of existence was 220 years at war . . . why does the US need 900 military basis around the world? Are they for spreading peace and democracy or conquest? . . .

Blackouts Stalk Green Energy Utopia
September 2017 — It is 7pm on a cold still night in the city which boasts "100% Green Energy". Thousands of electric cars are in their garages plugged into chargers; electric lights, heaters and TVs are running; electric stoves are cooking dinner, electric trains and lifts are moving late commuters and early revellers, and the pubs and clubs are busy. The hills bristle with turbines, but there is no wind and not one is turning. Every roof is covered with solar panels, but there is no sunshine and the panels are fast asleep. The green city is facing peak electricity demand . . . on batteries. But for several days, clouds have shaded the solar panels and there has been no wind to turn the turbines—the battalions of batteries are running out of juice. One by one they drop out. The street lights fade and the city goes dark.
In this green energy utopia all the wicked coal-powered generators have been closed or demolished, exploration for gas is forbidden, no one dares to mention nuclear, hydro schemes have gone (replaced by "Wild Rivers"), new hydro developments are stalled by green lawyers, and diesel generators and petrol cars are banned.

Vanuatu: Volcanic Eruption forces 6,000 People to Evacuate
September 27, 2017 — Vanuatu's Government has declared a state of emergency after an erupting volcano forced at least 6,000 people to flee their homes on the island of Ambae . . . The Manaro volcano has been active since 2005 . . . "There's ash, fire, stones and lava being thrown out from the mouth of the volcano," Shadrack Welegtabit, the director of Vanuatu's National Disaster Management Office, said. "It was difficult to say whether there will be a major eruption, and that those who have been evacuated will just have to sit and wait. With the seismic machine, we can measure what's happening but we can't really predict what the volcano will do next" . . . Full story: abc.net.au
Comment: Meanwhile, Bali's highest volcano is showing 'greater than ever' seismic activity with hundreds of tremors recorded daily, authorities have said, signalling that eruption could be imminent. Clouds have shrouded the top of Mount Agung, which is now said to have entered a 'critical phase' as seismic activity increases. More than 75,000 people have fled the surrounding area and a 7.5 mile (12km) exclusion zone has been established around the volcano (skynews.com.au).
A Hundredfold Christian
Psalm 78:2, "I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old: which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us".
A parable is a short story veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols that unfold previously hidden truths yet retain a Supernatural element that might only be revealed from Above. How many "dark sayings" have we been raised to believe and blindly accept? The myths of Santa Claus and the Easter bunny, the ruse that Jews are Semitic, holocaust hoaxes—three just in the twentieth century, the Babylonian trinity of gods introduced into Christendom at the First Nicaea Council where the Judaeo-Roman Universal church organized in AD325 in antithesis to the Old and New Testaments.
Most who call upon the lovely Name of our Lord Jesus Christ have no desire to draw so close to their Lord that the mind of Jesus Christ might live in them and be their compass. They are content to recite a creed by rote, ignorant of its true import; if it truly represents the faith of the apostles or is a fraud composed by carnal men centuries after the decease of the apostles. Disinterested, most do not take their Bible, pen and paper to Church.
How many churchgoers have ever questioned why the Judaeo-Roman church is called Babylon. There is a sound historical and spiritual explanation. Why are Christians unaware? Why did Jesus call Rome called a "whore," and her (once) Protestant daughter churches called "harlots?"
Jesus promised: "in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel He would [restore the apostolic faith (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11)], finish the mystery of God" (Revelation 10:7), and call His people out from Rome and her apostate daughters into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. Yet professing Christians say, "Where is the promise of His [(Gk.) parousia] Coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation" (II Peter 3:3). They don't know the signs of the time; neither does their kind old priest. Yet Jesus promised, "when the Spirit of truth has come into you, He will guide you into all truth: for He will not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will show you things to come" (John 16:30).
In Luke 8:10-11 "Jesus said, It is given to you to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of God [for the Kingdom of God is within you by the Spirit of Truth unfolding revelation from Above]: but to others I speak in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand. Now the parable is this: The Seed is the Word of God." We must be at one with the Word in order to manifest that we are the Sons of God who will change in the atoms without death.
A tiny election hear and understand His voice and will not follow a stranger. "Others" void of spiritual discernment hear only parables without understanding.
Genesis 1:11, "And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon earth: and it was so." This is God's law of procreation or reproduction; there is no evolution of species and God hates hybridizing for miscegenation was the original sin and is the besetting sin in this our day as it was in the days of Noah (Genesis 6:1-13; Matthew 24:37).
Had Eve waited for her prophet husband to receive the revelation instructing him "how to multiply and fill the earth" her firstborn would have been Jesus Christ the Word, the Author and Beginner of the NEW CREATION of God Himself, and His Body, the Church, would have continued building Word upon Word, line upon line, here a little, and there a little. Now however, that eternal Life of the original Seed could not, and would not, be shared in any other way than through the way of "God manifest in the flesh" to play the part of KINSMAN Redeemer for Adam and His race. This was a part of His eternal and predestinated purpose. This plan was to be to the praise of the glory of His grace. It was the plan of Redemption. It was the plan of Salvation. Now listen closely. God being a Saviour, it was necessary that He predestinate a man who would require salvation in order to give Himself reason and purpose of being. That is one hundred percent correct and multitudes of Scriptures bear it out as does Romans 11:36, "For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are ALL THINGS: to Whom be GLORY forever. Amen".
Man could not directly come and partake of that Tree of Life in the midst of the Garden [which was the theophany that would become Jesus Christ]. That Eternal Life of the Tree had to become flesh first. But before God could raise and save a sinner, He had to have a sinner to raise and save. Man had to fall. The fall that would be caused by Satan, had to have flesh to make fall. Satan had to come through flesh also. But Satan could not come through human flesh to make the fall as would Christ come in human flesh to restore the fallen.
Matthew 13:1-9, "The same day Jesus went out of the house, and sat by the sea side. And great multitudes were gathered about Him, so that He got into a boat, and sat down, and the whole multitude stood on the shore. And He spoke many things to them in parables, saying, Behold, a Sower went forth to sow; and when He sowed, some seeds fell by the wayside, and the birds [evil spirits] came and devoured them."
The hymn, 'A Hundredfold Christian' explains how the good seed must fall on the good ground of a predestinated soul if it is to reproduce the Life of Christ. And as the corn of wheat must die in order to reproduce its life many fold, we must die to the ten senses of our mortal spirit and flesh given to contact this natural world in order that our soul may contact the Great Creator who became our Saviour in whom dwells God's fullness.
The chorus of our little hymn is instructive for the overcomer:
It will take some fighting, a warrior I must be;
To bring my body subject, so the Word can live through me.
I'm predestinated, I know I'll make it through.
But I want to be a hundredfold Christian, and nothing else will do.
As Son of Man Jesus Christ was the Sower of the original Seed; in verse 19 Jesus identified the wayside as "those who hear the Word of the kingdom but understand it not [the vast majority of churchgoers], allowing Satan to catch away that which was sown in his heart."
"Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and immediately they sprung up because they had no deepness of earth: but when the sun arose they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away." Jesus explains in verses 20-21, that he who receives the seed into stony places, hears the Word, and immediately receives it with Pentecostal joy, yet with no depth of teaching in what Peter called "the present Truth" (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7), he falls away as soon as he encounters circumstances that require him to "earnestly contend for the faith once delivered to the apostolic fathers." He is bound in a denomination like the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church built on barren rock rather than the Rock of spiritual revelation from Above (Matthew 16:17). Or like a (once) Protestant church that organized, built its denominational walled city and was unable to come out when the next Gospel Trumpet sounded. Such stony ground is all theatre, psychology, dogma, superstition and tradition.
"And some seeds fell among [denominational] thorns; which came up, and choked them" with the cares of this world, keeping up with the Joneses' or business. Lapsed Protestant ground so choked up with intellectual reasoning men were dumbstruck when the Prophet William Branham introduced the second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming of the Son of man in W_O_R_D form as he revealed the mysteries of the Seven Thunders in Revelation 10. These divinely revealed 'mystery-truths' are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals that literally turn the hearts of the children to the faith of their Pentecostal fathers (verse 22; Jude 3).
"But other seeds fell into good ground [of an elected soul], and brought forth fruit, some a hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold." As Jesus explains in verse 23, "He who received seed into the good ground is he who hears the Word, and understands it; which also bears fruit, and brings forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty." The original Seed must be sown in the ground of a soul foreknown and predestinated to eternal Life as elect of God.
Romans 8:28-33, "For all He foreknew, He also predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren . . . Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect whom God has justified?"
Ephesians 1:4-5, 9-10, "God has chosen us in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love: having predestinated us to the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will . . . Having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He has purposed in Himself: that in the dispensation of the fullness of (Gk.) 'kairos' or opportunity times, [the seven Church Ages which ended in 1963] He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both [the sleeping PART Word or Church Age saints] who are in heaven, and we who [are alive and remain] on earth in Christ".
"The dispensation of the fullness of times" is right NOW! All seven Church Ages ended along with Christ's Mediation in the office Son of God for ignorance of the fullness of the Word. The revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963 brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form. He stated emphatically "Do NOT look for the Man! Look for Light on the Word" (Matthew 24:22-28). He has come as a thief in the night.
The "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6 was the "shout" of the Message of the Prophet William Branham calling the wise and foolish virgins OUT of Babylon to meet the Bridegroom and be filled with the Spirit (I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 17:5; 18:4). "When Jesus opened the Seventh Seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour" (and the heavens were emptied (Revelation 8:1; I Thessalonians 4:13-14; Jude 14). The silence in heaven has extended for fifty-four years, soon it will be broken by Israel's Seventh Trump (Revelation 11:15) announcing the end of the Christian dispensation of grace. He is only waiting for the last elect to recognize his or her day and become a written epistle of its Message.
Before the Lord can gather His Bride of all Ages Home for the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the Air, "He will first bind the tares ready for the burning." The Holy Spirit is even now binding them together in inter-faith groups, by the Catholic Charismatic Movement exercising the Gifts of the Spirit without the Spirit, Vatican II and World Council of Churches, ready for the burning. As He prophesied in II Thessalonians 2:10-12, "Because they received not the love of the Truth, [and Jesus is the Truth, the Light and the way], that they might be saved. God has sent them a strong delusion, that they should believe the lie: [the same lie that deceived Eve; God loves us all so dearly "surely" He does not mean what He said] . . . That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness".
In Matthew 13:9 Jesus said, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear." Faith comes by hearing, and understanding the revealed Word of God (Romans 10:17). Faith does not come by intellectual reasoning trying to guess God's mind. Denominational weeds will grow anywhere. Faith is revelation from Above, and is infallible.
Matthew 13:10-17, "And the disciples came, and asked Him, Why do You speak to them in parables?"
"Jesus replied, To you it is given to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. For whoever has [faith], to him more will be revealed, and he shall have an abundance of revelation: but whoever has no faith, even what little he has will be taken away from him. Therefore I speak to them in parables: because while seeing they see not; and while hearing they neither hear nor do they understand. In them the prophecy of Isaiah is being fulfilled, which says:
"By hearing you will hear, but not understand; and you will keep on seeing, but will not perceive: for the heart of this people has been rendered callous and dull, and with their ears they scarcely hear, and they have closed their eyes lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them" (Isaiah 6:9-10).
Are you with "us," Jesus and His disciples? Or are you with "them" to whom the Words of the Lord are parables as mysterious as Rome's Babylonian trinity or her 'Apostle's Creed' adopted centuries after the deaths of the apostles and contrary to every Word in the Bible?
In their apostasy at the end of the dispensation of the Law the Israelites were in the same condition as the Gentiles are at the end of the dispensation of grace. The spirit of Laodicea, which means 'people's rights,' egalitarianism or communism, pervades the whole world. Through the marvels of modern communication the people see and hear, they travel the world and knowledge is increased (Daniel 12:4) but without understanding, which is faith, they are blind and know it not.
Jesus forewarned the Laodicean Church Age: "I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spit you out of My mouth. Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that you are wretched, and miserable, spiritually bankrupt, blind to faith, and naked of the Blood, I advise you to buy from Me [spiritual] gold refined by fire, that you may become rich; and white garments [of holiness], that you may be clothed, and that the shame of your nakedness may be covered; and eye salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see. Those whom I love, I rebuke and discipline: be zealous therefore, and repent."
"Behold, I stand at the door of the apostate (once) Protestant churches, and knock: I will come in to any individual who hears My voice, and opens the door, and dine with him, and he with Me. I will grant he who overcomes to sit with Me in My throne, the millennium, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father in His throne [in the seventh dimension]".
In this day of Christ's unrecognized second or 'parousia' Coming in the office Son of man the Gentile churches are in the same godless state as Jerusalem's Temple and Judah's synagogues were in the time of the first (Gk.) 'erchomai' [or physical] Coming in the prophetic office Son of man. And as Israel crucified the Son of man, thinking they were doing God a service, the churches are "crucifying to themselves the Son of God afresh" (Hebrews 6:6) preferring their trinitarian substitute as Israel clung to their animal substitute.
Christians know their sovereign God is not defined by a democratic show of hands and the casting vote of the chairman or president. The objective of the few Christians who travelled to Nicaea was to persuade the followers of the Unitarian heretic Arius and the polytheist trinitarian heretic Athanasius to repent and return to the Word. Their pleas fell upon deaf ears and they departed before the president of the Council, pagan Emperor Constantine, made his grand appearance one month late. The Council was a typical Hegelian Dialectic whose objective was to destroy Christian faith (Revelation 2:12-17).
The Pentecostals crucified Christ without their gate when they rejected the revelation of the Seven Seals (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10; 3:20). The unwritten Seventh Seal is the revelation of the previous six written Seals delivered in the spoken Word of the Prophet's Message. Therein lies another parable. Jesus also revealed the Seals in Matthew 24 but when he came to the Seventh Seal in verse 32 he spoke in parables.
As in Daniel 12, John was forbidden to write "the things which the voices of the Seven Thunders had uttered . . . But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel [William Branham], when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as God has declared to His servants the prophets" (Revelation 10:1-7). This diagram shows the seven Church Ages of PART-Word with Christ's mediation whereby He received the Word for the Age and winked at the elect's ignorance of the fullness of the Word, and baptized them into their position in the Body. After the PART-Word members of the Body were sealed there was a breach between them and Christ, the rejected Capstone. Brother Branham stood in the breach and delivered the mysterious Spoken Word of the unwritten Seventh Seal. This revelation is calling Christ's end-time Bride out of the world church system and baptizing the "wise virgins" into the Capstone in this holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of Israel's Pentecostal Feast which types the Gentile or Christian dispensation (Leviticus 23:9-21).
Do you understand the parable? In Matthew 13:16-17 Jesus said, "Blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. For truly I tell you, That many prophets and righteous men [such as Martin Luther and the other angels to the Church] have desired to see those things which you see, and have not seen them [because the Book was sealed]; and to hear those things which you hear, and have not heard them".
The wheat and the tares which from the first age have until now grown side by side throughout two thousand years, are about to be harvested. What Nicaea set out to accomplish will finally come to pass. With all the might of organization the false church has turned from any vestige of truth and with political might will reinforce herself with state backing and set out to eradicate forever the true believer (Revelation, 13:13-18).
The current news items in our Newsletter generally show what Satan is doing now, while our main articles focus on "the present Truth" . . . what Jesus is doing NOW. Both sections unfold prophecy and record how the united States is developing into "an image of the beast" with church and state uniting in the near future as happened in the decline of Imperial Roman power when Emperor Constantine began to transform his Empire into a church kingdom, "come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries [diplomacy or guile]" (Daniel 11:21, 32-35; Revelation 13:1-18).
Today we see the rapid and irreversible decline of the united States, a Jewish-ruled country that is morally, spiritually and financially bankrupt. The non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jew, Benjamin Netanyahu said, "Once we squeeze all we can out of the United States, it can dry up and blow away." Her one asset is her blooded military. Papal Rome is also losing authority, and should fractional reserve fiat money fail international banksters will be hunted down like dogs. These anti-Christian international criminal organs represent the oligarchs and black nobility of three sovereign City States—Washington DC which is not a part of the united States, Vatican City State which is not a part of Italy, and the City of London, which is not a part of England—now need one another, and will establish the covenants prophesied in Daniel 9:27, Revelation 13:13-18; 16:12-16, and 17:11-18.
In Matthew 13:24-30 "Jesus presented another parable saying, The Kingdom of heaven is likened to a man who sowed good seed in His field: but while men slumbered and slept [through the Church Ages (Matthew 25:5)], His enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade sprung up and bore grain, the tares also bore. So the servants of the Landowner came and said to Him, Sir, did you not sow good seed in Your field? How then does it bear tares? He replied, An enemy has done this. The servants said to Him, Do You want us to gather them up? But He said, No; lest while you gather up the tares you root up the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in harvest time I will say to the reapers, First gather up the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn".
We are living in harvest time, waiting for that last elect to come to his place in the Body and for the outpouring of the latter rain at the Seventh Trumpet, Sixth Seal and Seventh Vial. Diverse kinds of seeds have been planted . . . and Christ sowed the original seed as we sing:
The Original Life, the Original Seed
The Original Word is what I believe.
The Son of Man is revealed
The Seventh Seal is unveiled
The Original Life, the Original Seed.
Satan has sown tares or darnels, and "false Christs, not false Jesus', but false anointed teachers and false prophets have appeared since the revelation of the Seven Seals, and shown great signs and wonders; insomuch that if it were possible they shall deceive the very elect" (Matthew 24:24). But the elect of God cannot be deceived on the revealed Word of God.
II Timothy 3:8, "As Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was." Thus the impersonators can only rise up after the real vindicated prophet has delivered his Message. How many ministers and Christians warn of false prophets when they are not looking for a true prophet and know not that He has been.
The mystery of the wheat and tares of Matthew 13:24-30, is now fulfilled. Two different seeds were sown, and Christ's end-time Bride has been rejected by the world church system with her Lord.
Harvest time arrived at the dispensation of the fullness of (Gk.) 'kairos' or opportunity times (I Corinthians 13:10; Ephesians 1:10). When the last saint was baptized into Laodicea Christ's Mediation for ignorance of the fullness of the Word, all seven Church Ages, and redemption were over. Since Brother Branham's ministry restored the apostolic faith and finished the mystery of God we now have by God's grace, the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication. Unlike the Church Age saints we don't require intercession; like 144,000 elect Israelites we were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary as we were foreknown to receive the fullness of the Word by revelation of the Seven Seals (in their case, the Seven Trumpets).
Throughout the Christian dispensation every seed brought forth after its kind; when the last elect was baptized into the body the church denominated, wrote its creed or manual binding the congregation to organization and preventing members from straying into the Light of any new Move of the Spirit. Since the outpouring of the former rain sent to quicken Brother Branham's Message to the end-time wheat Bride, it also watered Lutherans, Baptists, Pentecostals and others impersonating the Word for a day gone by. "For God [is no respecter of persons and] makes His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust" (Matthew 4:45; Hebrews 6:7).
This explains why the great revivals are over and there is no apparent growth of the Body but rather a falling away. The Seed has all been sown. The elect even within the circle of this Message are so much as a statistic recognized by the denominations. The only revival nowadays is in the heart of the Bride.
In Matthew 13:31-32 Jesus presented another parable, saying, The Kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field: this is smaller than all other seeds; but when full grown, it is larger than all garden plants, and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in its branches. The quality of mustard seed is not its small size but the fact it cannot be hybridized. Likewise, our faith, small though it may be, is prized for its purity as THUS SAITH THE LORD.
Now that Christ's end-time Bride has separated from Rome and her harlot daughter churches (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:4) the wheat and the tares no longer grow side by side. No longer will the tares receive of the blessing of God because of the presence of the wheat, for when Rome is about to accomplish her cowardly plot, the wheat will be gone, gathered into the garner, and the wrath of God will be poured out in the Sixth Seal which will end in the utter destruction of the wicked.
In verse 33 Jesus spoke another parable to them, "The Kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman [church] took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened." This might type Christendom after the Dark Ages and the Reformation of the Judaeo-Roman system of false worship where the Sardisean, Philadelphian and Laodicean Church Ages rose by successive revelations of the Spirit, then leavened by human reasoning, and died in denominational unbelief, causing Christ to call His end-time Bride out from all of them. Since the Kingdom of Heaven is God's elect we believe the leaven types the Gospel plunged into the heart of the mass which the woman kneaded into dough in order to permeate and transform it into light, nutritious bread as the Holy Spirit working within our soul raises us into heavenly places in Christ Jesus and brings our mortal spirit and corruptible flesh subject to the revealed Word of the hour so that the Token of the Life of Christ might shine naturally through us.
"Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and His disciples came to Him, saying, Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field. He answered and said, He who sows the good Seed is the Son of man; the field is the world; the good seed are the children of the Kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; the enemy that sowed them is the Devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels to the seven Church Ages"
In 1962 the Prophet had a vision in which he was seated on a mountain about forty miles north east of Tucson picking a burr from his trouser leg when there was a blast of thunder and he was caught up into a constellation or heavenly alignment of the seven stars of Revelation that formed the likeness of Christ wigged like a Judge as foretold in Daniel 7:9, Revelation 1:13-14 and 10:1-4. The seven stars were the angels, seven portions of God's Spirit or theophanies of the messengers to the Church Ages. Brother Branham recounted the vision to his church in his Message Is this the Sign of the End, Sir? Two days later he and his family relocated to Tucson. He described the experience of being caught up into the Pillar of Cloud when he delivered the Seventh Seal. This vision, described briefly here, came to pass on about March 8, 1963. The constellation of the seven stars, seven angels, or seven portions of the Spirit had to be complete because only the fullness of the Spirit can reveal the fullness of the Word.
Matthew 13:40-43, "Therefore just as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of the age (Malachi 4:3; Matthew 3:11-12). The Son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of fire [Gehenna]: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth (Revelation 19:20). Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father" referring to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb prior to "that perfect [millennial] day" (Matthew 26:29; Proverbs 4:18; Daniel 12:2-3). "Who has ears to hear, let him hear." Brother Branham's vision, his experience and the manifestation of the Cloud match this scripture, and you will note when Christ descended with the little Book open in His right hand he was once more in the prophetic office, Son of man and Judge (John 5:27).
Speaking on this verse the Prophet said, "He sends His angels to separate them." An angel is coming to bring the separation, the segregation between the right and the wrong. And no one can do that but the Angel of the Lord. He's the One that is going to tell which is right and which is wrong. God said He will send His angels at the last times. Not angels down through here, but angels at the last time, and would gather together . . . (The Seed of Discrepancy, p. 5:19).
Matthew 13:44, "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid, and for joy goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field [that he might be the lawful proprietor]." Our true treasure lies hidden in the simplicity of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Before the mighty God was unveiled before us He inspired His prophet to preach "God in Simplicity." The Kingdom of heaven is hidden in the Man from Galilee. Men sought it in Catholicism, Lutheranism, Pentecostalism, Islam, New Age; here and there they searched for the hidden treasure: perchance we heard the end-time Message, which is the fullness of the Word: Jesus Christ in W_O_R_D form. That was the end of our television, short pants, womanising, idle talk, the educated guesses of educated men and hours spent trying to transform the Devil's playground into Satan's Eden.
Luke 12:32-34, "Fear not, little flock; it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the Kingdom. Sell that you have, and give alms; provide yourselves purses which do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near, nor moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also".
Matthew 13:45-46, "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking goodly pearls: when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it." Until the Message we had found "goodly pearls" of wisdom, holiness and Truth only in the speculative form of denominational PART-Word, theological guesswork and traditions until we chanced to hear "the Voice of the seventh angel" whereon we forsook manmade religion, ambitions, the world and all its charms for "that which is perfect" (I Corinthians 13:10).
Early one morning after relocating to Tucson Brother Branham drove to Sabino Canyon and climbed up as high as he could. There he asked the Lord for the meaning of the blast he had heard in his vision, and of the pyramid-shaped constellation of seven Angels that picked him up off the ground and turned eastward. While standing in prayer something fell into his hand: it was a sword. The handle was made of "goodly pearl" [wisdom], and the guard was gold [deity]. The sabre's blade was not too long but it was razor sharp glistening silver [the Word of redemption] and it fitted his hand perfectly. As he held it, pondering, a voice from somewhere said, "That is the King's sword." Then it left him.
He wondered what "That is the King's sword" could mean and thought, "There is only one The King; that's God. And His Sword is "sharper than a two-edged sword" (Hebrews 4:12). "If you abide in Me and My Word . . ." Then something spoke to his heart "Don't fear. This is that third pull." It is your new commission, the opening of the Word (Revelation 10:7).
Matthew 13:47-50, "Again, the Kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet cast into the sea, gathering fish of every kind: when it was filled, they drew it to the shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but the unclean animals they threw away. So will it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the righteous, and cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth".
This differs from the parable of the tares and was easy for the disciples who had formerly been fishers to understand now that they were to catch men. The prophetic setting of this parable is this present holy convocation of the antitype of Israel's Pentecostal Feast; "the silence the space of about half an hour" after the close of the Church Ages and the revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963. Everyone outside Christ's end-time Bride is potentially a soul imprisoned now, trapped in the breach between the Church Ages and the Seals. Most of those who were bidden to the wedding would not come, yet the marriage of the King's Son is ongoing. Christ's mediation and redemption are over; those predestinated to Christ's end-time Bride were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary. When the last one recognizes his day and its Message he will be baptized into the Capstone, then we can all go Home.
Jesus explains this situation in Matthew 22:8-14: "The King told His servants, The wedding [supper] is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. Go therefore into the highways, and as many as you shall find, bid to the marriage. So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. And when the King came in to see the guests, He saw a man who was not wearing a wedding garment (Revelation 19:7-9): and He said, Friend, how did you enter without a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then the King said to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen" (Revelation 19:20).
In Matthew 13:51-52 Jesus asked His disciples, "Have you understood all these things? They said to Him, Yes, Lord. Then He said to them, Therefore every teacher who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a good householder who brings forth fruits of last year's growth and this year's gathering, abundance and variety, to entertain his friends. A skilful, faithful minister of the Gospel, is a scribe (Christian teacher), well-versed in the things of the Gospel, with a treasury of divine understanding out of which he is able to bring the new revelations of the 'third pull' along with Old Testament shadows and types." Hereby the Lord can make you "a hundredfold Christian". nl993.htm
