The Jewish Temple would be destroyed
The four Gospels represent the four beasts around the throne.
They tell us of a throne in Heaven that is only occupied by one Person.
REVELATION 4:2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
REVELATION 4:6 … and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
:7 And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.
Mark is the second Gospel and puts an emphasis on the second beast, the calf or young ox, which represents growing up and learning how to be of service to God as a burden-bearing servant.
A calf that endures for a long time as it grows up to be a strong ox teaches us that it takes us a long time before we learn how to serve God effectively. An ox is the beast of labour and of slaughter. So, if you want to serve God then expect persecution, verbal or physical.
Endurance, labour, and slaughter are three descriptions of the Gentile Christian church as they struggled against the Devil through the seven church ages.
MARK 13:1 And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!
The disciples were so impressed with the beautiful building that humans had built. They forgot that the man who actually put in the money to build the Temple was the so-called king Herod (who was not actually a Jew as he came from Idumea which is south of Israel).
Herod had been made king by the Romans and he knew he was a usurper. So, he desperately killed off anyone who he felt was a threat to his unscriptural position as he was no descendant from king David. Thus, Herod had done his best to kill the true born King, Jesus, when He was two years old. So, the spirit of killing the Word and making money infiltrated the Temple. The Temple rulers also hated Jesus as He was a threat to their money-making. The Temple had gathered incredible wealth. Sadducees, Pharisees, and Rabbis are never mentioned in the Old Testament. Thus, Jesus made them feel very insecure in their positions of usurped leadership and they lashed out against Jesus at every opportunity.
Similarly, pastors were never placed in charge of a church in the New Testament. Thus, they also feel insecure in their elevated but unscriptural one-man-is-the-head-of-the-church position. Like Herod, insecurity makes them tend to lash out against the Scriptural plan of small local churches meeting in homes and being ruled by their local elders who try to make the people Scriptural. Today, thanks to Zoom technology on computers and cell phones, different individuals and little groups can meet up over the internet to teach the truth and interact with each other.
In Matthew Chapter 13 there are 7 parables of the Kingdom of Heaven representing the seven church ages. The seventh parable has a NET (the internet) that sweeps through the sea of restless nations and peoples. Individuals who live far apart can thus join together in their attempts to serve God and learn the truth from the Bible.
We need to know the truth in the end-time so that we can understand the mysteries of the King James Bible. We cannot keep spiritually sleeping in our complacent ignorance of many Bible verses. As if the difficult Bible verses are just details that can be ignored. Thereby we cover up our Bible-ignorance and refuse to face our Bible-errors.
The Jewish leaders were no longer serving God because they rejected the ministry of Jesus.
But the Temple had accumulated enormous wealth which gave many of the Jewish leaders a very well-paid job.
Thus Jesus, being the Word of God, walked out of the Temple. This was the year AD 33. The emphasis is on the Word leaving the Temple.
He now stands outside the door of the Temple as He speaks to the disciples. That is how the Temple ended being of any use to God because the Word was no longer welcome in the Temple.
The Temple had changed from being a haven of truth and safety to being a trap of deception that would lead to mass slaughter about 37 years later in AD 70 when the pagan Roman general Titus destroyed the city and the Temple.
This is a preview of how the Gentile church ends because in “the church of the Laodiceans” (who make up their own church beliefs and doctrines) they have also pushed Jesus as the revealed Word, the King James Bible, outside the church. But Christians are still so impressed with all their church-building efforts, despite their profound ignorance of the revealed Bible mysteries. The churches no longer feel the need to be strictly Scriptural. They no longer regard the King James Bible as being the Absolute truth. Today Jesus, as the revealed Word, is no longer welcome in the church. He stands outside the church door.
REVELATION 3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write;
REVELATION 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock:
MARK 13:2 And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
The Temple had rejected Jesus. So, it was going to be totally destroyed.
The “wailing wall” in the Temple site at Jerusalem is a high structure of huge stones with at least seven visible layers of large stones at the bottom from Herod’s time. In addition, there are 17 layers of stone below ground level as well. That cannot be the spot where the Temple was because all of its stones would be thrown down during two rebellions against Rome in AD 70 and again between AD 132 – 135.
The Roman Emperor Hadrian hated the Jews and wanted to eliminate all signs of their Temple in AD 135.
In addition to the fact that the current size of the temple mount area is twice as large as what Josephus recorded in AD 70 is one piece of evidence that Hadrian, not Herod built the wailing wall.
Hadrian built a Roman fort in Jerusalem. Roman forts had to house 5000 men and were standardized at 36 acres in the form of a rectangle. The rectangular wall around the Temple site encloses an area of 37 acres.
Many people thus believe that the rectangular Temple mount wall was actually the wall of the Roman Fort Antonia built by Hadrian. (The large red rectangle shown on the next diagram).
Zion had springs. There are no springs in the Temple mount.
PSALM 87:5 And of Zion it shall be said, …
PSALM 87:7 As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee.
So, the Jews worshiping at the wailing wall (which is a small piece of the large red rectangle) are in the wrong place. Just like the churches worshiping Trinity, Christmas, Good Friday, 7-year Tribulation, William Branham is the Voice of God, etc, are doctrinally in a wrong space. We think God is impressed with our human efforts that embrace truth and error. What God is looking for is pure truth, uncontaminated by church traditions and opinions.
The closest spring is the Gihon spring.
Many people believe that the Temple was built in the vicinity of the Gihon spring (the small red square) before it was torn apart so that no walls remained and the area was covered in soil by the Roman Emperor Hadrian who wanted to eliminate all trace of the Temple. This would fulfil the prophecy of Jesus.
The walls of the Old City are shown in black. The Temple Mount walls are the large red rectangle. These massive stones have not all been thrown down.
This symbolizes the last church of the Laodiceans who simply "knoweth not" that they believe a lot of wrong things that their favourite preachers have taught them in their complacent churches. That is why all 10 virgins (a virgin is a clean woman symbolizing saved people in the churches) are described as fast asleep. And when the wake-up call comes it will tell them to clean up their lamps from worldliness and church errors to produce a clearer light that understands the Bible and "go ye out" of whatever church you are in.
MATTHEW 25:5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
:6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
:7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
The Jews rejected Jesus as a Man at the end.
The churches reject Jesus as the Word, the King James Bible, at the end.
MARK 13:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,
Jesus had made a public statement about the Temple being destroyed.
But only 4 of the 12 disciples actually showed any interest in what He was saying about future events. They came to Him privately to learn more.
This indicates that a minority of Christians are actually interested in finding out the truth about future events. The rest just sleep on complacently in their Bible-ignorance.
They think that because they are saved that they automatically go in the Rapture when Jesus catches up the church to meet Him in the air.
You cannot be saved from hell by doing any works.
Here Jesus is going to tell us certain works that we have to do.
So all these works, that cannot save us from hell, are what saved Christians have to do in order to be saved from the soon-coming great Tribulation.
MARK 13:4 Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?
Mark has only two questions. When is the Temple destroyed and when does the service of the Gentile church end with the Second Coming of the Lord?
In Mark, they did not ask when Jesus was Coming. They just asked for the sign that Gentile church history would be fulfilled.
Matthew speaks of Christ as the King of Gentiles and Jews.
Matthew has three questions.
They also ask when will the Temple be destroyed? Then the King deals with the Gentile church that ends with the Coming of the Lord. They also did not ask when He was Coming, they just asked for the sign of His Coming?
Then Christ as King deals with the Jews which will end at Armageddon when the world ends. What sign would there be for Armageddon at the end of the world?
MATTHEW 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
There they asked three questions.
First question. “When shall these things be?” This applies to the destruction of the Temple.
This happened in two stages. The Temple was destroyed by the Roman general Titus in AD 70. Then all traces of the Temple were wiped out by the pagan Roman Emperor Hadrian in AD 135. Not one stone of the Temple was left in place and the Temple area was covered with earth. Hadrian also built up some of the large rectangular walls of Fort Antonia (the red rectangle in the above diagram) so that the Romans could guard the city and keep the Jews out. A pagan temple of Jupiter was built on the site of the Temple (the small red square). The Roman Emperor Constantine, who claimed to be a Christian, later destroyed this pagan Roman temple completely.
Our biggest enemy is deception as we are easily fooled
MARK 13:5 And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:
In order to make the Rapture whereby we are caught up to meet Jesus in the air, we have to do certain works. The first one is to check very carefully with Scripture what any man says.
The moment we believe something that is unscriptural, we lose out.
Eve made one mistake and was thrown out of Eden.
MARK 13:6 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
The First Seal revealed that antichrist spirit that entered the Roman Catholic church until it produced a triple crown for Pope Clement V who died in AD 1314.
That antichrist spirit had a bow but no arrow, so he was a buffer. A deceiver. The white horse speaks of religion that is supposed to clean us from our sins. So he is a religious deceiver who would ride on to win his crown and then conquer the Protestants with his unscriptural one-man-is-the-head-of-the-church denominational organization.
REVELATION 6:1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
We are easily fooled by church preachers who are anointed with the power of the Holy Spirit but are unscriptural in their teachings. They have the power of the Spirit but do not understand the Bible truths.
MATTHEW 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
Rain speaks of the Spirit. God’s Spirit anoints and answers the prayers of both the good and the evil people. Do not judge a person by how powerful his prayers are but judge him by how Scriptural he is. The extent to which you are Scriptural indicates your position in the Body of Christ.
MATTHEW 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
What is the "Kingdom of Heaven?"
“Lord, Lord” is a double emphasis. These church-goers were emphatic that Jesus was their Lord. But that was just their emotions. They felt so good about their emotional outpourings and their intentions that Jesus is their Lord that they did not think they needed to know Bible truth as well.
They never bothered to understand the revealed mysteries of the King James Bible. They just preached their own opinions and their church traditions which made them popular within their churches.
The key thing is to know God's Will by understanding the revealed King James Bible.
The kingdom of God is the Holy Ghost dwelling within you.
LUKE 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
God dwells in Heaven. So the kingdom of God (the Holy Spirit) dwelling within you will open your eyes to show you the Will of God that He wants you to achieve as you enter His will for the seventh church age, which is the Kingdom of Heaven for today.
God's Will for the last church age is to have the Bible mysteries revealed from Scripture so that you can return to the beliefs of the first apostolic church age. Only the middle candlestick is guaranteed as that is where John saw Jesus.
REVELATION 1:13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man,
The Kingdom of Heaven in the last or seventh church age will only be reached when we have turned back to the beliefs of the first church age where the New Testament was written.
The end-time eagle-eyed insights of brother Branham take us back to the written Bible Scriptures of the lion-age apostles. Our biggest need is thus to be fully Scriptural.
MATTHEW 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
These men produced wonderful results of supernatural power that were very impressive.
MATTHEW 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Iniquity is when you know you are doing the wrong thing.
They contradict or ignore Scriptures and realize that there are many Scriptures that they do not understand.
They focused all their efforts on supernatural power in the Spirit and bluffed themselves that it was not important to understand the Bible mysteries that William Branham had revealed. Thus they ignored the end-time prophet that God sent to help us all and focused on themselves to boost their own self-images. This elevation of self is iniquity as it is the basis of Nicolaitanism. The elevation of a holy man to be the head of a church.
These preachers want to impress people with the supernatural power of their ministries. They should be impressing the people by teaching them the revealed mysteries of the King James Bible that William Branham made known to us.
MARK 13:7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.
The next two thousand years would be defined by endless warfare. That is just the way that human nature is.
War is a harsh teacher and we need to pray that we do not have to attend the lesson.
In the violence of war, murderous demons can be unleashed.
AD 70 saw 1,100,000 Jews being killed in 5 months as pagan Romans destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple. Between AD 132 - 135 another 580,000 Jews were killed by the Roman Emperor Hadrian. The Jews were scattered over the Roman Empire.
These vicious pagan spirits entered the Roman Catholic church which murdered tens of millions of non-Catholic people in the Dark Ages.
A fatal mistake of the Catholic church was entering politics.
You cannot be more merciless than a religious person who feels that in order to serve God he (or she) must kill people who disagree with them. Religion without mercy is unutterably cruel.
REVELATION 6:3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
:4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
"Another horse" but not another rider. That same antichrist spirit that spread religious deception now picked up political power for the Pope who is the figurehead of this centralized but unscriptural religious-political Roman Catholic church.
This savage religious slaughter finally ended in the 30-year war in Germany which caused great devastation between 1618 and 148. Both Catholics and Protestants were exhausted by the endless bloodbath.
Then John Wesley preached holiness and brotherly love and Christian outreach produced the amazing missionary age. Christian virtues blocked the awful pagan murdering spirits that could no longer kill in the name of the church.
Satan's problem was to somehow unleash those merciless spirits again. The churches would no longer stand for murder in the name of the Lord.
Two world wars. Korean war. Vietnam war. Two Iraqi wars. Afghanistan war.
"Rumours of wars” describe the 45 years of the Cold War. America and the Soviet Union fought each other by using smaller nations to do the fighting while they supported the smaller nations. This removed the danger of them having to use their nuclear bombs and missiles against each other which would have been mutually assured destruction of both superpowers.
The Cold War lasted for so long because of mainly two factors, the fact that nuclear weapons were involved, and therefore engaging in a direct confrontation would prove too costly for both sides, so that was avoided. So America and Russia fought indirectly by using other nations.
The other reason is that the Soviet Union collapsed because of it’s corruption and unprofitability, due to the lack of the drive that competition provides and their careless spending on the military. That process took years to happen, so that is why it dragged the war to about 45 years.
MARK 13:8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
The 1900s saw many large wars between nations. The western nations ruled the world with their empires but then committed financial suicide by attacking themselves in two world wars. They lost their empires and then numerous civil wars were fought inside each kingdom caused by poverty and economic inequality as different political groups fought to control each new country.
Then, sadly, many of the new countries or kingdoms attacked their neighbouring kingdoms or countries.
In the last 100 years, we have had about 16 major earthquakes each year.
Russian forces in Ukraine in 2022 are deliberately attacking food and agricultural targets to scare the world with the threat of a vast famine. They want to make global food shortages look like a famine and provoke a global food crisis. They hope thereby to use these troubles to pressure the West into making concessions.
The Russian-Ukraine war thus produces war, famine, and economic troubles as the cost of living escalates. Thus it is certainly as sign that the end-time is approaching.
The Holodomor also known as the Terror-Famine or the Great Famine, was a man-made famine in Soviet Ukraine from 1932 to 1933 that killed about 4 million Ukrainians on the orders of dictator Joseph Stalin.
From 1958 to 1962 about 55 million Chinese people starved to death in a man-made famine to help establish Communism in China.
But the big sorrows are still to come. The disasters of the past are just preparing the ground for the major disaster of the oncoming great Tribulation.
Russia with military violence and China with their business skills that are putting nations into her debt as well as their military expansion into the South China Sea have used famine and troubles to advance their agendas. These two nations have a huge influence on world affairs.
Ukraine provides most of the world's sunflower oil and a big portion of the wheat.
Those exports to the world were stopped in 2022 by Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
A sign of the times.
The Third Seal shows food weighed out for a penny which was a day's wage in the parable of the eleventh-hour workers.
MATTHEW 20:2 And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
A frightening prediction of people struggling to afford food.
"Give us this day our daily bread" from the Lord's prayer, takes on a deeper significance.
The churches are involved with the black horse of Big Business demonology. The Vatican is the wealthiest organization on earth, with at least $10 Trillion and does not pay tax.
Megachurches have grown up by using the hard-sell techniques of the marketplace.
One specific challenge for megachurches is the problem of potential abuse by pastors that are characterized by toxic and destructive leadership. In recent years, many Christians, as well as non-Christians, have been shocked by the number of megachurch pastors revealed as bullies, narcissists, or sexual assailants. When church leaders get the power to take your money, it does not make them better people.
Two of the four items mentioned in the Third Seal are wheat and cooking oil.
Oil also covers modern-day fuel which is made from oil.
This prophecy says that food and fuel will escalate in price. So this is where we seem to be in God's Plan. Famine is becoming a real threat. Fuel prices are escalating which pushes all prices up as goods have to be transported.
In 2022 money became a major worry. The Russian-Ukraine war saw recession looming, inflation soaring, and interest rates rising in many parts of the world. Stock markets wobbled and living costs began to bite.
America borrowed $5 Trillion during the COVID-19 pandemic and gave it to households so that they could have spending money to shield themselves from the economic shock of the pandemic. This created an unusually high demand for goods that collided with numerous supply chain issues that had been caused by the pandemic. The industry was thus not quite ready to respond to an increase in demand. Businesses react to an increase in demand and a shortage of supply by raising prices. American inflation shot up to 8.6% in March 2022. The law of unintended consequences.
REVELATION 6:5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
"Famines and troubles". The COVID-19 pandemic that started in 2019 certainly caused massive economic troubles with lockdowns as well as severe health troubles. American debt massively increased.
It seems that we must also expect earthquakes in strategic places that will disrupt the world's economy further.
One such massive earthquake, predicted by scientists for a very long time, will see Los Angeles slide into the sea. Los Angeles is on the San Andreas earthquake fault-line. This will devastate California which is America's wealthiest state. That will cripple the debt-ridden American economy.
This may open the door to allow the Roman Catholic church to rule America in a cruel fashion as Rome leads America to ruin. This prophecy was made in 1933 by the end-time prophet William Branham.
Our next step is the frightening Fourth Seal where Death takes his final ride.
Death can only enter when Life has left. So the Holy Spirit has caught the true Bride up to meet the Lord in the air and take them to Heaven for the Wedding Supper of the Lamb.
Death rules in the absence of Life. A quarter of the world is killed, some 2 billion souls.
The church will be the target as 2 billion people is the number of people who call themselves Christians. They have been left behind. They believed the church, not the King James Bible.
They are the foolish virgins. They were saved before great Tribulation started as the Lamb left His mercy seat to meet His Bride. But they were fooled by unscriptural church doctrines. They were thrown into great Tribulation to lose their faith in their church leaders. But there is no mercy nor salvation for unsaved Gentiles in that great Tribulation time.
The time has come and great Tribulation starts. A time of unprecedented terror as saved church members realize that they had been fooled.
REVELATION 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
REVELATION 7:13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
They had to be washed in the blood of the Lamb before great Tribulation started, while the Lamb was still on the mercy seat. The Lamb got off the mercy seat to go down and meet His Bride at His Second Coming. Thus the foolish virgins were saved from hell in their church systems but needed the trauma of great Tribulation to knock all the church errors out of their thinking. They had to learn that Jesus (as the King James Bible) is the Head of the church, not their pastor.
63-0318 THE FIRST SEAL
Takes the Book and... of Seals and breaks them and shows the seventh angel, for this alone, the mysteries of God, is the ministry of the seventh angel.
We need an eagle-eyed insight into understanding the symbols and patterns of Scripture.
We can only escape great Tribulation by being Scriptural and returning to the original first church age beliefs.
REVELATION 6:7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
:8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
Having discussed the future of the church, Jesus returns to the difficulties that the apostles will face as they establish the first church age.
MARK 13:9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.
The disciples would be continually attacked by both the Jewish leaders and by the pagan Roman Empire.
Attacking and accusing the apostles was the most serious sin that these rulers could commit. The apostles had to establish the foundation of the church that was to last for 2000 years until the last church age could return back to the beliefs of the first church age. Thus, the disciples had the most responsible task. They had to write down the New Testament and establish the first church age.
The Christian church was established through much persecution. The Roman emperor Nero began an official persecution in AD 64 to blame the Christians for the fire of Rome that he had caused. He imprisoned the apostle John on the prison island of Patmos where John began to write The Revelation. John was released in AD 68 when Nero died.
Domitian became Roman Emperor in AD 81. He later started a persecution against Christians and imprisoned John on Patmos again after trying to boil him in oil. John completed The Revelation and was again released when Domitian died in AD 96.
When the disciples, who became the apostles, left the scene, usually by martyrdom, the truth would be lost as ambitious human leaders took over, driven by self-gain. Then the truth would slowly be recovered after the Dark Ages. This process was started by the brave monk Martin Luther in Germany. He restored the belief that we are saved by faith and not by works.
In 1604 there were 47 scholars who translated the King James Bible. This was checked and rechecked and finally published in 1769 where It became the foundation of the great missionary age.
End time conditions are difficult
MARK 13:10 And the gospel must first be published among all nations.
The Gospel has been spread around ever since the journeys of the apostle Paul.
The great missionary age that began around 1793 with William Carey going to India, saw tens of thousands of missionaries leaving the British Isles. The King James Bible was spread around the world.
Today, thanks to the internet, the truth travels all over the world via computers and cellphones (also called mobile phones).
MARK 13:11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.
Starting with the original apostles, the Devil has always opposed and persecuted anyone who gets involved with spreading the truth of the King James Bible around the world.
Today the Devil gets church-goers to oppose and reject the King James Bible. Then they oppose the ministry of William Branham who revealed the Bible mysteries. Now they sabotage the ministry of brother Branham by misinterpreting his quotes in such a way that they cannot prove their doctrines just from the Bible.
MARK 13:12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.
Hatred of Bible truth will rip apart even the close ties of families. Church-goers will hate and character assassinate those who disagree with them.
In AD 325 the Trinity was introduced at the Council of Nicaea and vicious wars were fought over the Godhead. In the Dark Ages tens of millions were killed over their Bible differences. Hatred and violence surged through the church world.
The Name of Jesus is hated in water baptism
MARK 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
The big issue at the end time is the name of Jesus. The Trinity belief has so brainwashed the foolish virgins (saved Christians that are fooled into wrong beliefs) that they believe that somehow “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” is actually the name of God. Thus, they deny and condemn the belief that Jesus Christ is the name of God. Consequently, they refuse to get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ according to Acts 2:38. The modern church-goers therefore cannot be restored to the beliefs of the first church age of the apostles.
There are numerous different water baptisms that modern churches allow in their confederation of fellowship. But never adult baptism in the name of Jesus Christ. Those people are despised and subject to character assassination.
You cannot endure to the end in order to be saved from hell.
That would be salvation by works, which is impossible.
You are saved from hell at the beginning of your Christian experience when you repent and accept Jesus as your personal Saviour.
To endure as a Bible-believer who believes that Jesus Christ is Almighty God will make you hated by the Trinitarians who have no one name for their Trinity God and consequently believe that Jesus is “God the Son” (an unscriptural statement). Thus, they believe that Jesus is below Almighty God Who is the unnamed God the Father. No Old Testament name for God the Father is ever mentioned in the New Testament. To make things even worse for the Trinitarians, the expression “God the Father” is never found in the Old Testament.
“God the Holy Ghost” is never mentioned in the Old Testament or the New Testament.
The Holy Ghost s never given a name in the Bible.
Faced with the impossibility of finding a name for their Trinity God, Trinitarians reject and shun those who believe that Jesus is the name of God, because the fulness of the Godhead dwelled in the Man Jesus. (Colossians 2:9).
The Trinity doctrine made the church lose the name of God.
ISAIAH 26:13 O LORD our God, other lords beside thee have had dominion over us: but by thee only will we make mention of thy name.
“Other lords”. The three People in the Trinity Godhead.
But only one Person has a name in the New Testament. Jesus.
“God the Father” has no name in the New Testament. “God the Holy Ghost” has no name either. The Bible never says "God the Holy Ghost".
JEREMIAH 23:26 How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies?
yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;
:27 Which think to cause my people to forget my name
by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.
The Trinity depends on many unscriptural lies that ultimately end up with people not knowing the name of God. Three People cannot have one name.
AMOS 6:11 Then shall he say, Hold thy tongue: for we may not make mention of the name of the LORD.
Church-goers today cannot make mention of one name for the Trinity God. Nor can they find a Bible name for “God the Holy Ghost”.
Nor can they find a New Testament name for "God the Father".
“In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” is not a name.
So, Trinity believers just stay away from the topic of the name of the Trinity God, if they want to stay in the church.
Pagan abominations in the churches remove the name of God. It was the pagans who first came up with the idea of a trinity of gods.
The Catholic church modified this into a Trinity of three Persons that was somehow one God.
Nobody could ever explain that.
The Protestants then copied this unscriptural three-Persons-in-one-God from the Catholics.
The Pope became King of the Purgatory demons
MARK 13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
A very difficult verse to understand.
It was pagan Romans who stood in the Jewish Temple in AD 70 where they had no right to stand.
Then they destroyed the Temple and Jerusalem, making the place a desolation.
The Roman Catholic church is the resurrection of the pagan Roman Empire’s spirit that was destroyed by the barbarians. Pagan Rome’s spirit rose up as the Catholic church on the ruins of the Roman Empire.
Blending clever pagan philosophy (like the Trinity) and Bible words was an abomination because it took away the name of God. A Trinity God of three Persons cannot have one Name.
Using an unscriptural word (Trinity) to describe faith made the church desolate of truth.
Today Christians claim that though "Trinity" is not in the Bible, yet they can believe it is the truth. Therefore they can also believe in the unscriptural Christmas, 25 December, Good Friday, Lent, eating fish on Friday, worship of Mary, and calling brother Branham the infallible Voice of God. Even though the Voice of God is never promised in the New Testament.
DANIEL 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
Romans crucified Christ Who is the Word of God.
This shows the hatred that the pagan Roman spirit had for the Word of God.
Throughout all seven church ages, the pagan Roman spirit corrupted the Roman Catholic Church by getting them to change the Word of God which effectively crucifies Christ again.
The daily sacrifice was taken away when Jesus died at Calvary. His death is the only sacrifice that counts. All the other sacrifices became invalid.
A day can represent a year in prophecy.
GENESIS 29:27 Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.
A Bible year is 360 days.
REVELATION 11:2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
42 months is 1260 days. So 1260/42 = 30 days in 1 month.
12 months of 30 days is a Bible year of 360 days.
Our Roman year (started by the Roman Julius Caesar and fine tuned by Roman Catholic .Pope Gregory 13) is 365.24 days. So for every 70 Bible years, we only have 69 Roman years.
1290 Bible years = 1290/70 fewer years for us, which is 18 years.
We have 18 years less on our calendar.
1290 Bible years = 1290 – 18 = 1272 of our years.
Calvary was in AD 33.
33 + 1272 = 1305
In AD 1305 a new Pope was elected, Clement V. He died in 1314 but no Pope was elected until John 22 was elected in 1316.
In 1315 when there was no Pope, a list of Papal treasures was drawn up which included the mention of a Tiara which is the Triple Crown of the Popes.
So, Clement V was the first Pope to wear the Triple Crown. This made him ruler of Heaven, Earth, and Purgatory.
Babylonian paganism and Roman paganism had finally found a king of demonology, the Pope.
By intermingling Christianity and pagan abominations, the Roman Catholic church made the church desolate of truth. Then they would spread their false ideas to the Protestants.
MATTHEW 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
The pagan Romans stood in the Temple in AD 70 and then burned and destroyed it.
In AD 135 the pagan Romans broke down any surviving stones and covered the Temple site with soil to totally eliminate any evidence of its existence. This was the extent to which the pagan Roman Emperor Hadrian hated the Jews.
This cruel and vicious pagan Roman spirit was beaten by the barbarians who conquered the Empire in AD 476. This brutal Roman spirit then resurrected to life on the ruins of the Roman Empire as the Roman Catholic church. The Roman church then sought to rule all this pagan demonology.
These pagan abominations entered the church and made desolate the salvation Plan of God.
The people of the final Man of Sin were the Romans
DANIEL 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself:
and the people of the prince that shall come
shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
The Romans destroyed the city and the Temple. General Titus in effect was also a prince because his father Vespasian had just been appointed as Emperor by the army. As such, Titus was a preview of the final Roman Catholic Pope, who is the man of sin, the son of perdition. The son from hell.
Pagan Rome sent a flood of 80 thousand soldiers to conquer tiny Israel. People laughed. Alexander the Great conquered Persia which was the first worldwide Empire with 50000 men.
Pagan Rome mutated into the deadly spiritual virus of Roman Catholicism
DANIEL 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
7 years were allocated to the Jews when Jesus began His ministry. Halfway through, after 3.5 years He was killed which caused all the Temple sacrifices to cease. Then the destruction of the Temple in AD 70 made it impossible for any Temple sacrifices to be offered.
The abominations of the pagan Romans then entered the Roman Catholic church in AD 382 when Pope Damasus accepted the title of Pontiff which made him the High Priest of the Babylonian mysteries. He gave senior positions in the Roman Catholic church to the Babylonian priesthood.
Pagan unbelief made Bible truths desolate. The Roman Catholic church developed all these pagan errors right down to the end of the time of the church ages, which is called the consummation.
The Roman Catholic church is the only organization that has endured through all seven church ages. The beliefs of each age have been challenged and made desolate by Roman Catholic doctrines.
They have fooled the non-Catholic churches into their camp. Thus, the desolation caused by Bible-illiteracy spread through the Protestant churches too in order to fool the saved foolish virgins.
But when the 3.5 years of great Tribulation starts, God has determined the level of wrath that He is going to pour out on the Roman Catholic church and on the saved foolish virgins who believed the desolate unscriptural denominational church doctrines.
When Rome attacks Jerusalem get out fast says Jesus
To answer the question about the destruction of the Temple, Jesus refers to the events of AD 70.
Two bad events would happen. Jewish robbers and thieves and Zealots would occupy the Temple and kill the High Priest. From there they surged forth to rob and kill the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
Then Roman general Titus, the son of the new Roman Emperor Vespasian, attacked Jerusalem and built a wall of earth around it in a few days. When the earth wall was complete, no more Jews could escape.
The spirit of pagan Rome was going to enter the Roman Catholic church. Pagan religions believed in trinities and having a human priest as the head of each pagan temple. The Roman dictator Julius Caesar had bribed his way to being elected as Pontiff or High Priest of the Babylonian Mysteries. Each Roman Emperor held the title of Pontiff until AD 382 when the Roman Emperor Theodosius handed the title of Pontiff to the Bishop of Rome, Damasus. By AD 400 the Bishop of Rome was called Pope and Pontiff. Thus the pagan Babylonian religious mysteries entered the Roman Catholic church to destroy the influence of the apostles who had established the early church.
Instead of referring to the written Bible, the church now accepted the Pope as the Universal Bishop in AD 606. Everyone had to be in subjection to the Pope.
MARK 13:15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house:
The Jewish robbers were out of control with their thefts and murders. People should have left Jerusalem immediately. Then the Roman army of Titus surrounded the city. If people did not leave immediately, they would be trapped within a few days.
When people left Jerusalem, then the robbers would follow them and kill and rob them. So, the people had to move fast. It was pointless to try to carry your household goods away as that would slow you down and the robbers would easily overtake you. Corpses littered the sides of the roads.
MARK 13:16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.
When the Jews or the early Christians in Jerusalem saw the first signs of the Romans preparing to attack Jerusalem they had to get out fast. They must not carry anything because that would slow them down and the robbers who lived in the Temple would follow the roads and kill them. It was essential that they moved fast and left the roads to travel cross-country and walk towards the mountains where they could hide from those who pursued them.
MARK 13:17 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
Pregnant women and mothers who are carrying young babies would really struggle in the mountains.
MARK 13:18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.
Israel is bitterly cold in winter and has winter rainfall. Cold and wet would be the worst of circumstances for people walking through the mountains towards safety in a nearby city in the region called Decapolis (the 10 cities).
This is evidence that Jesus is talking about the Jews in AD 70 when the cruel Romans, who hated the Jews, destroyed Jerusalem and especially the Temple.
The Jews go out and come back with savage persecution
The destruction of Jerusalem was one of the cruelest acts of the pagan Roman Empire. It showed the extreme murderous hatred that they had for the Jews. About 1,100,000 Jews perished in about 5 months. Only during World War 2 did we see such casualties at the siege of Leningrad which lasted 2½ years.
The First World War unleashed the spirit of dictatorship as democratic leaders became dictatorial in their efforts to win the war.
Mussolini became the natural political dictator of Italy and declared the Vatican to be an independent state in 1929. As the smallest country in the world, the Vatican became the little horn of Daniel's ominous prophecy. The Pope helped both Mussolini and Hitler come to power as natural political dictators.
The Pope rules the church as a spiritual dictator.
DANIEL 8:8 Therefore the he goat [Alexander the Great who was the Greek king] waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.
After 20 years of civil war, four generals split up Alexander's kingdom.
DANIEL 8:9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn,
This refers to the territory of Lysimachus, one of the four Greek generals who succeeded Alexander the Great, that is shown in black. This included the city of Pergamos where the Babylonian Pontiff lived with the Babylonian Priesthood.
General Seleucus took Asia and Ptolemy took Egypt. Cassander ruled Greece.
In 133 BC this territory of Pergamos was given to Rome.
In 63 BC Julius Caesar bribed his way to becoming Pontiff. This title of Pontiff entered the Roman Catholic church when it was given to the Bishop of Rome, Damasus in AD 382. The Pope of Rome is still called Pontiff. The Babylonian Mysteries entered the Catholic church which became Mystery Babylon the Great. The Vatican is the smallest City State but worldwide rules 1.4 billion Catholics. The Vatican is the world's wealthiest organization.
The Second World War saw natural dictators like Hitler and Stalin unleash murderous spirits onto natural Israel, the Jews.
It was as if the dictators Stalin in Russia and Hitler in Germany again unleashed the incredibly murderous spirit of pagan Rome on the Jews.
The Jews went out of the Promised Land with a sickening slaughter of over one million in AD 70. During World War 2 there was an even more awful slaughter of 6 million Jews in Hitler’s Holocaust. This awful affliction was the start of God turning back to the Jews.
The nations briefly felt sorry for the Jews and voted them a small homeland in Israel in 1947. Four wars against the Arabs saw the Jews triumph.
When the Bride goes then God fully turns to the Jews in the horror of great Tribulation.
DANIEL 8:9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn (the spirit that became the Vatican), which waxed exceeding great, toward the south (the church world of the queen of the South), and toward the east (demonology), and toward the pleasant land (Israel).
The queen of the south represents the church that can believe and wants to believe in Solomon, the son of David, which is a title of Jesus when he is King in the Millennium for 1000 years.
MATTHEW 12:42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.
Cain went east with his lying and murderous demons.
GENESIS 4:16 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
DANIEL 8:10 And it (the Pope in the Vatican) waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.
The Pope calls the dead saints intercessors. Praying to Peter and Mary. Contacting the dead is spiritism and very dangerous. This pulls the saints down from Heaven and tramples them further down as if they are in the underworld of demonology.
DANIEL 8:11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.
The Roman Pope's title is Vicarius Christi. In place of Christ. You cannot magnify yourself higher than that.
Claiming that Peter has the key to Heaven so that he alone decides whether you get into Heaven of not. Jesus is the Door. But the Pope claims that Peter alone can open the Door.
This actually elevates Peter above Jesus.
Jesus said to Peter:
MATTHEW 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
But Jesus said the same thing about opening and closing to the other disciples too.
MATTHEW 18:18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
So, what opens the Door to Heaven?
ACTS 2:38 Then Peter said unto them,
Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins,
and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
:39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
Repentance opens the Door to Heaven as it saves you from hell.
Baptism in the name of Jesus Christ opens the Door to prepare you for the Coming of the Lord as it saves you from being fooled by the Trinity doctrine. Thus you can improve your chances of escaping being part of the foolish virgins who go into great Tribulation.
The Roman Catholic spirit goes right back to the pagan Romans of AD 70. The Romans crucified Christ in AD 33 which took away the daily sacrificing of animals that no longer had any value. Then they destroyed the Temple in AD 70 so that nobody could offer animal sacrifices.
This verse links modern-day Roman Catholicism right back to the brutal and murderous spirit of the pagan Romans. People will experience this when great Tribulation starts.
MARK 13:19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.
The Jews are caught between two Tribulations. The Holocaust that gave them back their Promised Land and then the future great Tribulation that will give them back their rejected Messiah.
When Jesus returns to catch up the living Bride to meet Him in the air then the Gospel will return to the Jews in the 3½ years of great Tribulation. That will be the worst time of affliction and mass murder ever seen on planet earth. That is what the Jews will have to face.
Thus, because of their rejection of Christ, they were mass-murdered by pagan Romans in AD 70. Then their return to the Promised Land saw 6 million gassed to death with Zyklon B in Hitler’s concentration camps. Hitler, as a natural political dictator, released the savage pagan Roman spirits on natural Israel.
Finally, their acceptance of Messiah in great Tribulation just before Armageddon will see natural Israel, the Jews, having to face horrendous persecutions and ghastly killings that murder two-thirds of them.
ZECHARIAH 13:8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.
Demons in the church cause spiritual death
But what happened to the murderous pagan Roman spirits that Hitler unleashed? Pagan Rome was very religious in terms of worshiping idols and demons.
When the Second World War stopped, the Germans had to stop murdering the Jews. Thus, the released demonic spirits now entered the spiritual realm in order to destroy spiritual Israel, the church. To achieve this they entered the World Council of Churches when it began in 1948.
By getting saved Christians to not believe and understand the revealed King James Bible, these demonic spirits will plunge these foolish virgins into geat Tribulation. There they will be mass-murdered in an orgy of bloodshed. They cannot murder the foolish virgins now, but the day is coming when they will have the freedom to do so. The vicious spirits of pagan Rome that hated the Jews will kill two-thirds of the Jews too.
This is now the major challenge to the true church or Bride before the Lord Comes to rapture the saints up to meet Him in the air. How can we get Scriptural and be restored to the early apostolic church beliefs of the New Testament. Then follows the 3.5 years of great Tribulation with its indescribable horror.
The true Bride has to be completely Scriptural and believe that the King James Bible is the Absolute and infallible truth. The Bride also has to be restored back to the beliefs of the first church age.
But religious demonology in the churches has splintered the church-goers into 45000 different types of churches and denominations.
These religious demons have savagely attacked the King James Bible. Over 100 different English translations are available. Take your pick. What a farce.
Sincere Christians believe that the King James Bible has mistakes, contradictions, myths, and scientific errors. Thus, they have no pure foundation for their faith. So, their faith cannot be pure.
As such it becomes increasingly impossible to understand the Bible and thereby return to the beliefs of the early apostolic church.
MARK 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
The seventh church age has to be cut short.
This verse does not refer to salvation from hell. That is obtained by a sincere repentance.
But it means no3body wants to believe the Bible truth and thus no flesh will be saved from great Tribulation by being caught up to meet the Lord in the air.
Each year more and more Christians fall for church errors and fault-find the King James Bible.
Error is now so widespread in the churches that nobody can find the full truth anymore.
Churches preach a mixture of truth and error.
Denominational preachers and message preachers who claim to follow William Branham are producing church members who are becoming increasingly Bible-illiterate. Sincere Christians now criticize parts of the King James Version Bible. Thinking of themselves as being clever, Christians believe in the theory of Evolution and the theory of the Big Bang. The pagan Roman birthday of their sun god was announced to be 25 December by pagan Roman Emperor Aurelian in AD 274, three days after he beheaded the Bishop of Rome. Around AD 350 Pope Julius I declared 25 December to be the birthday of the Son of God, Jesus. It was called Christ’s Mass as Catholics services are a Mass.
The Bible never asked us to celebrate the birth of the Lord.
Yet Protestants have accepted this unscriptural Catholic Mass as Christmas.
Thus, the desolation of the Christian church continues as more and more unscriptural doctrines flow from the pagan Roman Catholic church to the non-Catholic churches. Trinity. Lent. Mass. Good Friday. Eat fish on a Friday. Denomination. A man is the head of a church whether he is called Priest, Minister, Reverend, or Pastor. The quotes of man replace Scripture. Believing William Branham is the Voice of God and thus Infallible, just like the Pope is believed to be Infallible.
MARK 13:21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:
You will never see Jesus on earth until He appears at His Second Coming. And then He will never touch ground as He will catch us up to meet Him in the air.
The only place that you will see Jesus before He appears in the flesh in the air to catch us up, is when you see Him in the revealed mysteries of Scripture that enable you to understand the Bible. You can only see Him as the revealed Word.
This situation will only change when the resurrection of the New Testament saints occurs. Then the 7 Thunders will enable us to change into our immortal bodies.
Only then will you see Jesus in His immortal Body.
I JOHN 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
MARK 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
“Christ” means a genuine anointing. Preachers will produce spectacular supernatural results but they will not be able to understand the mysteries of Scripture and they will preach false doctrines. They will deny the truth of the revealed mysteries.
A genuine anointing on a false understanding of Scripture. If you cease to be strictly Scriptural then you will be caught out and deceived by these people.
False Christs claiming to preach the truth have split the church into 45000 different types of churches and denominations. Then there are over 100 different versions of the English Bible to choose from. So it is virtually impossible to find the truth in this spiritual swamp.
MARK 13:23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
We are warned in advance.
Demons unleashed on the Jews then enter the Churches
The final church age must return to the doctrines of the first church age of the apostles before being raptured or caught up to meet the Lord in the air.
I THESSALONIANS 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Then the Gospel will go to the Jews.
Two terrible tribulations would be involved.
God started with a specific tribulation (called "that tribulation") against the Jews where 6 million were killed in Hitler’s terrible Holocaust during World War 2 that ended in 1945. The nations were so shocked that in 1947 they briefly forgot their hatred of the Jews and voted them a tiny homeland in Israel. That was the start of Israel’s return to their Promised Land.
Then God began to focus on the church as He revealed the hidden mysteries of Scripture between 1947 and 1965 through the ministry of William Branham.
MARK 13:24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,
"That tribulation" refers to Hitler's Holocaust where 6 million Jews died.
The Holocaust ended in 1945 when the war ended.
Our sun or the source of our Light is the King James Bible.
After 1945 the released demons that murdered the Jews had to stop killing. The churches would not accept mass slaughter. Very subtly these demons changed tactics and began murdering the faith that people had in the King James Bible. They murdered any interest that people had in the stunning end-time revelations of William Branham as he showed us how to understand the Bible.
These spirits entered the churches and began a sustained attack against the King James Bible. As church-goers found so-called faults in the King James Bible and thus rejected It, so the sun darkened. The infallible King James Version of the Bible (KJV) was now dismissed as seriously flawed. Its Light was dismissed. Thus the influence of this KJV Bible darkened as it was rejected.
The moon is a symbol of the church that reflects the sunlight (the KJV) to the world that is in darkness. The moon has no light of its own. So, the church has to only reflect the KJV Bible.
But by changing Bible words and criticizing the KJV the church is no longer reflecting the sunlight but is reflecting its own numerous opinions. Thus very little true light is reflected by the churches. The moon is thus not giving light as they no longer quote nor believe the King James Bible.
After that tribulation of the Holocaust, all the murderous demons unleashed by the cruel dictators Hitler and Stalin had to stop killing Jews when World War 2 ended. Nations would not permit that savage bloodshed to continue. So, in 1948 all that demonology entered the World Council of Churches in order to kill the love of truth by rejecting the King James Version of the Bible. They also got the non-Catholic churches to reject the ministry of brother Branham so that the end-time Christians, who are meant to be the children turning back to the apostolic fathers, die spiritually in their Bible ignorance. Then they will be killed in great Tribulation time.
The first exodus saw the Jews coming out of Egypt and Pharaoh killed the children. The second exodus saw the church coming out of the Jews and Herod killed the children. The third exodus sees the Bride coming out of the churches as the churches kill the children of today with their unscriptural traditions. Trinity. God the Son. Father and Son are co-equal. Father and Son are of the same essence (whatever that means). Christmas. 25 December. Good Friday. 7-year tribulation. William Branham is the Voice of God. Brother Branham is infallible.
MARK 13:25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.
We use the stars to navigate and find direction. The stars that guide us spiritually are the church preachers and leaders. They are supposed to give us an understanding of the Bible. But modern-day preachers fall from their heavenly calling. They chase money and tell people what they want to hear. They preach from church traditions and man-made opinions as they cannot prove their doctrines just from the Bible. By not revealing the mysteries of the Bible, they offer the people no real spiritual guidance as they just remain in darkness. Church-goers are becoming increasingly Bible-illiterate.
Then in 1963, God revealed the Seven Seals which allow all the other Bible mysteries to open up.
To draw attention to this great event, seven angels formed a supernatural Cloud that was about 42 kilometers high above the city of Flagstaff on 28 February 1963. At this height the air is too thin to form a cloud. There is no water vapour.
This impossible Cloud at that great height shook up all the laws of high-altitude physics. We tend to call high altitude “heaven”. According to the laws of physics, no rain cloud can form at that height. But the Cloud was still light after darkness had set in. That indicated that it was supernaturally high, formed by angels’ wings.
Eight days later at Sunset Peak those 7 angels that had formed the Cloud gave brother Branham the commission to reveal the Seven Seals. That led to the mysteries of Scripture opening up.
Brother Branham could prove his beliefs just from Scripture. Now, the individuals in the Bride must get to the stage where they can also prove what they believe from Scripture.I THESSALONIANS 4:16
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
One month before he died, brother Branham was still waiting for the “shout” to happen.
65-1127 I HAVE HEARD BUT NOW I SEE
Dear God, in this solemn moment, it's going to be a time like this when there really will be a clap of thunder someday, and the Son of God shall descend from the heavens with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and the trump of God, the dead in Christ shall rise.
The “shout” was not brother Branham proving his message from Scripture.
The “shout” is when the Bride individuals are able to prove his doctrines are the truth just by using the King James Bible.
62-1111 WHY I'M AGAINST ORGANIZED RELIGION
Notice, the 19th chapter is the next, "After these things." Did you notice here in the 19th chapter, "After these things"? Watch what?
After what? After the Message of "Come out of her!"
"After these things," watch,
"is the shout of the Bride saints, with the Bridegroom, going to the Marriage of the Lamb." How close are we then, brother? What's the last call? Come out of Babylon!
Now, my brethren, that's the reason I'm against it. It's unscriptural. It's unorthodox. It's been proven to be false. God is not in it, He never was, He never will be. Now, I ain't saying there's not people in these organizations, that's where the church was made up of.
But, as long as you stay into that system, you're a part of it.
LAODICEAN CHURCH AGE - CHURCH AGE BOOK CPT.9
We are going to look at this carefully. It says that this Laodicean church age group is lukewarm. This lukewarmness demands a penalty from God.
The penalty is that they will be spued out of His mouth.
Here is where we don't want to go astray as a lot of folks do. They very unwisely say that God can spue you out of His mouth and that proves that there is no such thing as any truth to the doctrine of the perseverance of the Saints. I want to correct your thinking right now.
This verse is not given to an individual. It is given to the church.
He is talking to the church.
Our safety no longer lies in a church. That is fairly obvious as there are over 100 different variations of brother Branham's message. None of which can be proven just from Scripture.
Each individual now has to learn how to interpret the deeper Bible mysteries by using the quotes. They must not interpret quotes to mean something unscriptural.
Then the “voice” of the Archangel will raise the dead.
After that, the trump of God will call the Bride up to meet Christ in the air when they see Him Coming.
MARK 13:26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
The Bride goes up and God turns to the Jews
After the Coming of the Lord to collect the Gentile Bride, God turns to the Jews.
MARK 13:27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
In the 3.5 years of great Tribulation God sends angels (plural), two of them. Moses and Elijah. Their job is to gather the Jewish elect who are the 144000. They have to be gathered because they are scattered all over the earth in all directions. North, South, East, and West from Jerusalem. They are elected by God to become born again from Heaven. Heavenly subjects of the great King. The 144000 will be the protectors of the Lamb’s Bride.
But to prepare the way for these two Jewish prophets in the 3.5 years of great Tribulation, God has to first get the Jews back into the Promised Land.
MARK 13:28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:
The fig tree is a symbol of Israel. In the last week of His Life, Jesus cursed a fig tree on Monday which was the day after Palm Sunday, for having no fruit. By Tuesday it had dried up. This symbolized the spiritual drying up of the nation of Israel when they crucified Jesus on Thursday and were thrown out of God’s salvation Plan which went across to the Gentile church.
So, in 1947 the Jews were granted the right by the United Nations to fight for a small piece of the Promised Land. In 1948 they were attacked by five Arab armies and they gained a totally unexpected victory.
The Jewish flag is the Star of David. David lived about 3000 years ago. No other nation has a flag that refers so far back to their history. The Star of David flag was first hoisted in 1948 by the Jewish President, David ben Gurion. Name accuracy over a time gap of 3000 years.
The Arabs threatened the Jews in 1967 but lost spectacularly in the famous 6-Day War.
Moses said to work for six days and then rest. Moses (Moshe) Dayan the Jewish minister of Defense fought for 6 days to defeat Egypt, Jordan, and Syria. Then he rested on the seventh day as the Arabs surrendered. Name accuracy over 3500 years. Beating 3 nations in six days is unheard of, but God was turning back to the Jews.
Abraham (who was first called Abram) paid tithes to God and asked for Eshcol to get his portion. Abraham’s great grandson was Levi who collected the tithes.
Levi Eshcol was the President of Israel when the Jews won back the main portion of the Promised Land. Name accuracy over 4000 years. It obviously pays to pay tithes.
GENESIS 14:20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he [Abram] gave him tithes of all.
GENESIS 14:23 That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich:
:24 Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.
Levi Eshcol got his portion.
MARK 13:28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:
When we see the Jews getting back into their Promised Land then this is a marker that the end is near.
1948 was a key year but they had very little of their Promised Land.
1967 would be a much better year to mark from. The Jews now had a lot of their Promised Land back. But one problem existed. They had also conquered the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt which God had never given to Abraham. So, in 1973 the Arabs attacked and did much damage. The Jews finally won but they had come close to defeat. So, they traded land for peace.
In 1982 they gave Sinai back to Egypt in return for a peace agreement.
From that date, they were properly in their Promised Land.
This is a lesson to us that Christians must not follow worldly fashions and dress and behaviour. We must live within the Bible limits and not trespass into Satan's territory by getting involved with smoking, drinking, drugs, and gambling. Those habits open a door for the Devil to hammer us and do much damage to us.
MARK 13:29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.
Israel is back in their Promised Land and no longer trespassing onto Egyptian territory. The end is close.
MARK 13:30 Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.
People who were born around 1982 will more than likely live to see the end-time events come to pass that end with the 3.5 years of great Tribulation which terminates in the battle of Armageddon.
In 2018 President Donald Trump bravely recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. King David had originally recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital around 1000 BC.
Present-day Israel thus has gone back to its ancient beginnings.
Now, the Bride must return to the ancient beliefs of the first church age of the apostles.
MARK 13:31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
Nothing can change a single word of the King James Bible. We must regard the King James Bible as the Absolute Truth. Any deviation from the King James Bible is a sin.
Whatever is written in the King James Bible, will happen.
We must be awake at the end and not be asleep
MARK 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
Nobody knows when the Second Coming of the Lord is. God does not want us to know. But he does want us to be ready all the time.
MARK 13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
Read the Bible and recognize that no parable and no prophecy concerning the end time church is complimentary.
Watch what the churches are doing as they move away from Scripture and are unable to explain the revealed mysteries of Scripture.
Watch how obsessed the churches are with politics.
Watch how obsessed the churches are with money-making.
Pray for a deeper understanding of the revealed King James Bible so that we can avoid the errors in the churches.
MARK 13:34 For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
Three ministries are used to set the church in order.
Apostles of the New Testament. Prophets of the Old Testament as well as the end-time prophet to the Gentiles who restores the final church to the beliefs of the first church age.
Then teachers who can take the quotes of William Branham back to Scripture to prove the truth from Scripture.
There is no mention of pastors. So, be careful who you listen to.
MATTHEW 17:11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.
I CORINTHIANS 12:28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
MARK 13:35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
We do not know when Jesus will come, but it will be unexpected.
We must learn to expect the unexpected.
We learned this from the COVID-19 pandemic. It was bad to be positive in the test.
MARK 13:36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
We do not dare be asleep when He comes.
A woman symbolizes a church. A virgin is a clean woman symbolizing saved people in a church.
Matthew 25 has a parable where all the saved people are represented as 10 virgins, some wise and some foolish. But they are all fast asleep, complacently unaware of what is happening.
MATTHEW 25:5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
The one parable in Matthew says all saved Christians are fast asleep in their churches.
The other parable in Mark warns us that if we are asleep we will be in trouble.
So we are in a troubling time.
God wants to deal with us as individuals, not as churches.
REVELATION 3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write;
REVELATION 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
Jesus knocks on the church door. But the church does not respond.
Jesus is hoping that some individual in the church will respond.
REVELATION 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
God spues the church out of His mouth, not the individual.
MATTHEW 25:6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
A cry speaks of anguish.
A wake-up call at midnight. Is this going to be some massive disaster like an earthquake?
The wake-up cry tells us to get out of whatever church we are in. “Go ye out”.
This ends the third Exodus as the last Bride individuals finally leave the church.
MATTHEW 25:7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
The wake-up call will cause all of us, even the foolish virgins, to examine ourselves and correct our standards and our Bible beliefs.
MARK 13:37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch
The key word is “Watch”. We must be on the lookout. We must be ready to improve and learn. We must want to be corrected so that we can be more Scriptural.
