Why is it a "little" Book that John ate?
We update studies as the Lord Jesus leads us. You can find the latest update of this study at ChurchAges.net
Only a few people understand the little Bible verses that the churches ignore and contradict because they are blinded.
- A little space of grace to leave us a little remnant
- Here a little and there a little as Bible verses link
- The open Book means the mysteries have been revealed
- The enemy is the little horn or Vatican state
- Little children are restored to the apostolic fathers
- Few will believe the King James Bible at the end time
- Little groups meet in houses
A little space of grace to leave us a little remnant
The First Coming of Jesus ended with very few people believing in Him.
He stood alone in the Judgement Hall of Pontius Pilate. People lacked the courage to stand up for Him as the perfect Man.
Only 120 people were in the upper room to await the Holy Ghost baptism.
The Second Coming will also fit that pattern.
Few will have the courage to stand up for the King James Bible (which is Jesus in Word form because It tells us His thoughts) as the only infallible and Absolute truth.
Few will regard the King James Bible as perfect and few will use brother Branham's quotes to understand all the "mysteries of the revealed Word".
Few will realize that the 7 Thunders will utter after the resurrection in order to show the living Bride how to change their physical bodies so that they can receive rapturing faith. The Thunders are hidden in the written Word, and if we cannot understand the mysteries of the written Word then we will never understand the clues that point to the hidden mysteries of Scripture.
Few will not be fooled by the message-churches emphasis on quotes and interpreting quotes and glorifying brother Branham which is very effectively making people Bible-illiterate. Bible-illiteracy is the deadliest virus of all.
Fooled by clever man-made interpretations that cannot be proven just from Scripture, the message-people join the selling ranks of the foolish or fooled virgins. Saved, but heading for great Tribulation.
Few will realize that "the mystery of God" is for the last church to get back to believing what the first church believed.
The harvest only happens when the final seed is the same as the original seed that was planted.
Then all the variations of "quote interpretations", which are just as dangerous and infectious as the variations of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, will be discarded. The early church never believed those ideas.
The early church never had a pastor in charge of a local church. That structure is wrong.
The Angel comes down with an open Book, expecting the living Bride to be able to understand the mysteries of written Scripture. Then they will be in a position to understand the hidden mysteries, that are not written. But the hidden 7 Thunders mysteries will provide clues that link back to the written Word, if we understand the written Word properly.
The Angel does not come down to open the Book, He comes down because the Book is open.
62-1230 IS THIS THE SIGN OF THE END SIR
But it is the seventh angel that had this type of Message. What was it?
Notice his type of Message, "Finishing all the mysteries of God, that are written in the Book."
The seventh angel is winding up all the mysteries that's laying loose-ended, all out through these organizations and denominations. The seventh angel gathers them up, and finishes the entire mystery. That's what the Bible said, "Finishes the mystery of the written Book."
Speaking of the Angel he says:
He come down from Heaven, because the mystery is all finished.
The mighty Angel does not come down to open the Book, He comes down after the mysteries have been revealed which opened the Book so that we could read and understand the Bible.
63-0320 THE THIRD SEAL
... the seventh angel, when he sounds, all the mysteries of God should be finished up by his sounding.
Then after it's revealed, the Angel come down from heaven, which was Christ
The 7th angel reveals all the mysteries and then AFTER that the mighty Angel Comes down in Revelation 10.
... And then goes on and said, in the day just before these seven thunders, all the mysteries here are revealed.
Here he repeats that the mysteries are revealed BEFORE the 7 Thunders utter when the Angel comes down.
REVELATION 10:2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
At the time of this prophecy we should be focusing on small or little Bible issues that have been overlooked or ignored or contradicted by the churches.
We should be focusing on small numbers, small groups. Not the big churches.
EZRA 9:8 And now for a little space grace hath been shewed
from the LORD our God,
to leave us a remnant to escape,
and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage.
God has given us a little extra time at the end to get to know and understand the Bible.
God often has to work with a small remnant. So do not expect popularity but rather rejection.
ISAIAH 1:9 Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.
Jesus used the city of Sodom as a reference to the end time when Lot just managed to escape with his two daughters before the fire fell. Only three escaped out of two big cities. God is not impressed with big numbers. He looks for quality in his Bride.
LUKE 17:28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot;
MATTHEW 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Here a little and there a little as Bible verses link
It is small mistakes that grow that cause the harm.
SONG OF SOLOMON 2:15 Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.
Small errors creep in that cannot be proven from the Bible. Error is like germs because error breeds. When we are wrong we use less and less Bible verses to prove our doctrines. We become more and more unscriptural.
People claim the right to interpret the mysteries that are not written in the Bible. This is an error.
II TIMOTHY 4:2 Preach the word;
MATTHEW 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
We must only believe what is written in the Word.
People claim to know the seventh Seal. But it is silence. No one can interpret silence. That error spreads.
Then by claiming to know the seven Thunders, they again claim the right to interpret what is not written. Thus different versions of the Thunders have evolved. So the error spreads out like the toes of Daniel’s Gentile image.
Then they claim to know the new Name of Jesus. Which is also not written. Here this doctrine clearly contradicts Scripture.
REVELATION 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a
name written, that no man knew,
but he himself.
Here the Bible clearly says that no man knows the new Name of Jesus. Anyone claiming to know this Name is simply contradicting Scripture. That is not a good space to be in.
ISAIAH 28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.
So we should be searching all through the Bible for clues to understand the truth.
All the little Scripture verses must fit in and not be ignored.
Why did Jesus twice write with His finger on the ground?
Preachers tend to ignore this lesson. Yet it was a deep message to explain to the Jews how hopeless the Law of Moses was in terms of making them better people.
When Jesus fed the five thousand and the four thousand, He put the emphasis on the number of baskets of leftovers. The bits of food that were rejected. Why?
MATTHEW 16:9 Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and
how many baskets ye took up?
10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and
how many baskets ye took up?Jesus was not asking about the food that was eaten, He was asking about the bread that the Jews rejected.
The rejected food was His interest.
There were 12 baskets and 7 baskets. Why these two numbers?
The tabernacle had 12 loaves of shewbread and a seven-branched candlestick. Why these same two numbers?
Your head is connected to your body by your backbone. Seven neck vertebrae and twelve vertebrae that hold your ribs.
A pattern is emerging that these Scriptures fit into. What is Jesus trying to tell us?
Christ is the Head of the church (not the Pope or the pastor).
He is connected to the Body of His church by two main groups. The church during the seven church ages who are to reflect God’s light to the world like a seven-branched candlestick.
And the 12 tribes of Israel who return to accept the Lord Jesus in great Tribulation as the 144000.
They are represented by the 12 loaves of shewbread that had to be eaten in the Holy Place in the Tabernacle. Thus the Jews have to return to Israel today in order to meet the Lord. Getting the Jews back into Israel is the main focus that God has today.
President Trump bravely fulfilled prophecy in 2018 when he recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Let us go back to the miracle of the baskets of food.
Jesus fed the multitude twice but they rejected much of the food that was later picked up by the disciples. Bread and meat are symbols of doctrine.
This rejected food symbolized the Jews of that day who would reject the Gospel of Jesus and crucify Him.
This rejected Gospel would then be delivered as the New Testament to two groups by the disciples who became apostles. They wrote the New Testament which was delivered to the church throughout 2000 years of history. Then the 144000 Jews in the 3.5 years of great Tribulation will accept the Gospel that the Jews originally rejected 2000 years ago.
If the mysteries have been revealed then we will be able, like Ruth, to glean a deeper insight into the Scripture from all the little verses (grains of corn that were never picked up by the reapers) that the churches ignore or overlook or change because they could not see deeper into the written Word.
The key issue about the numbers 7 and 12 is that they are bones that attach the body to the head.
The open Book means the mysteries have been revealed
EPHESIANS 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church:
The church began by totally depending on Christ as its Head.
They just believed and followed the written Scriptures.
In order to corrupt the faith of people, the antichrist church system had to replace Christ as the Head of the church with some man. In the early days it was a Bishop. Today it is a pastor who is elevated to be in charge of a church (even though “pastor” is only mentioned once in the New Testament, but condemned six times in the Old Testament) and finally a Pope is to become in charge of all the churches.
Never forget that wise proverb that says, “Power corrupts”.
Any one-person in charge of a church becomes a dictator as he is corrupted by power.
Nowhere does the Bible say that a pastor is the head of a church. That is Babylonian thinking.
The “open” Book means that someone has revealed the mysteries of the antichrist spirits that caused the rise of the man of sin before this Angel of Revelation Chapter 10 came down.
If we do not know how the antichrist spirits rose to power than we will not recognize that church system and we will be fooled. The final Pope will be the figurehead of this false church system.
The word “Nazi” has two ideas associated with it. One is a ruthless gang of mass murderers. The second is the man Hitler who was head of the system. It was a two-way process. Hitler needed the Nazis to carry out his orders. The Nazis needed Hitler’s authority to give them legitimacy.
As soon as Hitler died in 1945, the Nazi movement collapsed. They no longer had a figurehead to serve.
The antichrist spirits also depend on a man and a system. The system is the spirit of organized denominational religion with its man-made beliefs and rules. The figurehead is the Pope who rules the system and gets his legitimacy by claiming to be the successor of saint Peter.
So the rise to power of the Pope began in a small way.
The bishop of Rome was struggling when Constantine became emperor in 312 AD. Constantine gave the Roman bishop wealth and authority as head of the Western church. Thus he was the strong man in the West when Constantine moved East to the city of Constantinople.
But then in AD 476 the barbarian tribes broke up the Western Roman empire which is Western Europe today.
DANIEL 7:8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
A horn is a power. The Vatican is one square kilometer, the smallest power or state on earth.
This map shows the Eastern Byzantine empire that was ruled by the Eastern Roman emperor who lived in Constantinople.
Odoacer, head of the Heruli tribe overthrew the Western Roman emperor in Italy in 476 AD and ruled Italy. He was not a Trinitarian so the Pope in Rome was unhappy. Theodoric and the Ostrogoths, who lived near Italy, were asked by the Eastern Roman emperor in Constantinople to enter Italy and destroy the Heruli, which they did. But Theodoric and the Ostrogoths were also not Trinitarians so the Pope was still unhappy. The Trinitarian emperor of Constantinople then sent an army to wipe out the Vandals (also non-Trinitarians) in North Africa as their navy threatened Rome. This gave that army a secure base in North Africa from which they could invade Italy. (Just like the Allies first invaded North Africa and then invaded the toe of Italy in the Second World War).
This army from Constantinople then went to Italy and took twenty years to wipe out the Ostrogoths. So the three barbarian tribes that were not Trinitarian, and which had contributed to the downfall of the Roman empire, were destroyed. The Heruli, the Vandals, and the Ostrogoths were three horns (or tribal powers) that were eliminated so that there was no opposition to the Trinity doctrine as the Pope rose to power in Europe.
Thus the Pope was able to rise to power amongst the remaining barbarian tribes that had taken over Western Europe from the pagan Roman Empire. All of these barbarian tribes in Western Europe accepted the Trinity and thus accepted the Pope as the head of the church. Thus the Roman church became known as the Roman Catholic church in western Europe. Catholic means universal. By AD 1200 the Pope was as powerful as any ruler or king in Europe.
DANIEL 7:8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold,
in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man,
and a mouth speaking great things.
The Pope gained power over the barbarians by claiming to be the successor of Saint Peter.
Jesus gave Peter the keys to Heaven. Peter opened the Door to Heaven when he told the people to repent and be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ.
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.This is the key to Heaven. It applies to everyone, including us today. The key to Heaven, as preached by Peter, is simply that we must repent of our sins and get baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ. It is a personal experience between you and Jesus.
But the Pope told the barbarians that Peter only opened the door to Heaven for people who helped the Pope and were subject to what the Pope said. So Peter, as a man, was promoted above Jesus.
Jesus was the Door to Heaven. But the Pope claimed that Peter had the keys to the Door and thus Peter decided whether to open the Door or not. Scared of the supposed power of Peter to control access to Heaven and anxious to please him, the barbarians began to obey the Pope. They believed Peter would not open the Door to Heaven for them if they did not obey and help the Pope.
So the Pope claimed that Peter stood in the place of Jesus, the Son of God.
The "Donation of Constantine" was a forged document published in the 750s to elevate the position of the Pope. (The forgery was only revealed in 1440. Until then, ten Popes had used the document to prove their authority). This document was produced to gain the help of the barbarians, especially the Franks who were the most powerful tribe, as well as protecting the Pope from the Eastern Roman emperor. This document actually said that Peter had the impressive title of VICARIVS FILII DEI. (In place of the Son of God). In other words, it is Peter and not Jesus who decides if the Door to Heaven will open for you. Certain Latin letters have a number value. The Latin letters in Peter’s supposed title that have number value add up to 666.
(I = 1, V = 5, L = 50, C = 100, D = 500)
The Romans often used V instead of U because straight lines are easier to carve on stone. We still say that W is called “double u”. In other words UU is written as VV or W.
Saint Peter is the only man that this title of VICARIVS FILII DEI was applied to. But it brought the barbarians in Europe into subjection to the Pope because they believed he was the successor to Peter and thus Peter would not let them into Heaven if they had not obeyed the Pope.
Peter is not to blame as he never made these claims.
V I C A R I V S F I L I I D E I
5 1 100 1 5 1 50 1 1 500 1 = 666
“Speaking great things” is telling us how to get to Heaven.
“Eyes” speak of intelligence. Human intelligence. The elevation of human leaders to be in charge of the church.
Today, people are more scared of obeying their pastor than of obeying Scripture.
Church traditions and pastor’s opinions rule the church and have splintered the church into 45000 different types of denominational and non-denominational churches.
"Christmas. Christmas tree. 25 December. Archbishop. Lent. Denomination. Catechism. Confirmation.
District Overseer. Trinity. One God in three Persons. Original sin was eating an apple which is why Eve suffered in childbirth".
All these words and statements are unscriptural but widely believed by Christians. So the church traditions, which started in Rome, have spread through all the churches.
The nonsensical comment about Eve really shows how little the churches understand the Bible.
The enemy is the little horn or Vatican state
The little horn as the tiny Vatican state, has grown to spread its unscriptural influence worldwide.
Today Christians happily believe unscriptural words that have been invented by human intelligence.
Thus the many antichrist spirits rose up in the Roman Catholic church and spread to the Protestant churches.
Daniel then saw another vision of the Greek empire of Alexander the Great that broke up into four smaller kingdoms.
DANIEL 8:8 Therefore the he goat 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.
The four winds of heaven meant that there was a spiritual significance to these events.
The smallest of these four kingdoms was the kingdom of Pergamos that was ruled by the general Lysimachus. The high priest or Pontiff of the Babylonian mysteries had fled to Pergamos when Cyrus conquered Babylon in 539 BC. In 133 BC the priest-king Attalus III gave his kingdom of Pergamos to Rome when he died. Julius Caesar bribed his way to become Pontiff of the Babylonian mysteries in 63 BC. All the Roman emperors took over this title of Pontiff until Theodosius refused it in AD 378. By AD 400 the bishop of Rome had taken on the title Pontiff. The Pontiff must have his head covered according to Babylonian law. That is why the Pope always wears a skull cap.
As the Greek kingdoms were defeated by Rome, so the mysteries of Babylon rose up inside Rome.
When the Roman empire collapsed to the barbarians, so the mysteries of Babylon rose up inside the Roman Catholic church.
DANIEL 8:9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.
East in Scripture always refers to demonology. Cain originally went east from Eden, taking his demons with him.
Statues. Idols. Prayers for the dead. Purgatory, where money is paid to get dead people out of purgatory. Praying to Mary. Praying to Saint Peter. Praying to the saints. This is all spiritism and drags the dead saints down to the level of spiritualists.
DANIEL 8:10 And it 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.
So Daniel tracked the mystery path of the many antichrist spirits in the Old Testament as the mysteries of Babylon hid away in Pergamos, small and unnoticed, and then finally moved on to the Roman empire. There they hid away unnoticed until they began rising to fame with their Pontiff Julius Caesar as he ruled the world. When emperor Theodosius rejected the title of Pontiff, then the title infiltrated almost unnoticed into the Roman Catholic church. So the Roman Pontiff or Pope rose to power as the influence of the Babylonian mysteries spread around the world.
The Babylonian mysteries have also infiltrated into the Protestant churches where they lie unnoticed.
From small and humble beginnings they are now poised to take over the world.
But Jesus also had humble beginnings.
MICAH 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
Bethlehem was a small town.
Yet it was here that Jesus was born. Jesus began His ministry from a small town and at the end of His ministry only had 120 people who gathered in the upper room to receive the Holy Spirit. So at His First Coming Jesus ended His ministry with few followers.
The same will happen at His Second Coming.
MATTHEW 10:42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.
Small acts of kindness are noticed.
Little children are restored to the apostolic fathers
The little children also refer to the end time as the children have to be restored to the apostolic fathers. A cup of water is a symbol of true Bible doctrine.
Jesus expects us to give out truth to people, not some man-made doctrine.
MATTHEW 18:4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Humility is very attractive. The more humble we are, and if we think of ourselves less often, then the more God can use us.
I JOHN 2:13 I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.
The fathers were the early church that we must return to. The young men were strong to survive the cruelty of the Dark Ages and the religious wars between Catholics and Protestants. Then they tackled the Devil overseas in the great missionary age.
We are the little children who in the end turn back to the beliefs of the early church fathers.
We know that the Father is God who dwelt bodily in Jesus Christ. Thus we know that the human Name of God the Father is Lord Jesus Christ.
You cannot know God the Father if you do not know His Name.
Speaking of Christ, the Bible says:
COLOSSIANS 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
MATTHEW 19:14 But Jesus said,
Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me:
for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
Jesus wants the little children (us Christians at the end time) to return to Him, Who is the Word. He does not want us to believe some church doctrine or the quotes of some church leader.
When He says “suffer the little children”, He means that at the end time there will be a lot of suffering and rejection that the little children have to go through in order to get back to the Bible.
I JOHN 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
The Holy Ghost inside us is the only way that we can overcome all the errors of our age and end up believing everything that is written in the Bible.
I JOHN 5:21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols.
The Trinity of three People, each of whom is God, has been the most successful doctrine that the Devil has produced. It started in Babylon and is now a firm belief in almost every church.
Do not idolize a man. Do not elevate a man above the people. Just stay with Scripture.
JAMES 2:1 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory,
with respect of persons.
So "little" has various meanings at the end time.
There will be a little group of believers.
We are the little group of children who are restored back to the Pentecostal fathers.
We must think little of ourselves. Our own opinions are not important. We must only believe the Bible.
REVELATION 3:8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
The missionary age of Philadelphia (which means brotherly love), despite all their heroics, had little strength because of all the mistakes that they believed. But they held fast to the King James Version of the Bible and their focus was on salvation in the Name of Jesus Christ as they went out to heathen lands. They were able to focus on outreach to the world and that is why God did not require too much accuracy of Scripture from them.
So today we need to make sure that we do have a more accurate belief of Scripture.
We are the eagle age and we are expected to see the truth.
Let us take a look into the future.
REVELATION 6:11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
These are the Jews who were killed for their Old Testament faith during the church ages. The 3.5 years of great Tribulation is on and since the Bride is in Heaven, they want to go down and destroy the denominational Roman church system that had killed so many of them. But they are told to wait for a little while. Great Tribulation is only three and a half years long. The 144000 Jews, their fellow servants, have to accept Jesus and be killed. Then only can everyone go down for Armageddon.
Pope Urban 2 had organized the first Crusade that killed and robbed the Jews on their way to Palestine. Pope Pius 11 helped Hitler on his rise to power. Pope Pius 12 never condemned the Holocaust where Hitler killed six million Jews. All those martyred Jews are keen to come down and settle the score with the Catholic church, and the Protestants who kept quiet.
We, humans, are always in a rush.
Here we learn how to wait for a little. God has bigger plans that He is busy with than our personal concerns. So we should learn to think of ourselves less.
REVELATION 10:2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
But, remember, if it goes plumb into the shadows of death, "I am the resurrection and Life; I'll raise him up again." And when the great Director comes down and bears that stick down, then, "time shall be no more." When that Angel, of Revelation the 10th chapter, puts one foot on land and one on the sea, and a rainbow over His head, He swore, "time shall be no more."
When that time comes, you'll rise up from among the dead.
While the rest of them lay there, you'll go in.
The dead are buried either at sea or in the land.
The mighty Angel comes down for a major event, the resurrection of the dead.
Few will believe the King James Bible at the end time
The Book that is open is described as “little”.
"Few" there will be that believe the Bible at the end.
REVELATION 10:11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
John’s five books would speak throughout the 2000 years of church history.
He ate the Book and became one with It at the beginning of the church ages.
When John rises in the resurrection he will still be believing the same Bible. He will then be standing on earth with the mighty Angel who raised him from the dead.
Revelation 10 deals with the resurrection and the preparation for the catching up of the Bride. The revealed written Book will be used by the resurrected saints and the living Bride to guide them through the unwritten seven Thunders when they utter.
Thus John will eat (digest and believe) the same revealed Book at the end.
Therefore the beginning and the ending of the church ages is the same.
But so also will Moses and Elijah eat the Book in order to know all the mysteries of the Seventh Seal (the Coming of the Lord) and the seven Thunders that prepare us for that event. Then Moses and Elijah can focus on the mysteries of great Tribulation to protect and guide the 144000 to Jesus.
Wait till them seven thunders utter their voices to that group who really can take the Word of God and hand it there. It'll slice and cut. And they can close the heavens; they can shut this or do that, whatever they want to. Glory.
He will be slayed by the Word that proceeds from His mouth; it's sharper than a two-edged sword. They could call for a hundred billion tons of flies if they wanted to. Amen. Whatever they say's going to happen, because it's the Word of God coming from the mouth of God. Amen.
This is the seven Thunders putting the two prophets into action during the Tribulation after the same seven Thunders have given the Bride the faith they need to be caught up to meet the Lord.
The little Book.
Only a few, a small group, will be able to Scripturally unravel the seven Thunders when they utter. Thus they will be the few who build up rapturing faith and thus get caught up to Heaven. These few are those who are now spending their time to take brother Branham’s quotes back to Scripture, and thereby be able to understand the Scripture.
Message people think the Thunders have uttered and that they know what the Thunders are. But the fact that they are still on earth means that their "clever" revelations have not produced rapturing faith.
We were never required to be clever.
We were only asked to stay Scriptural.
There are various Thunders doctrines that have been preached over the last fifty years. They all have two things in common.
No Thunders doctrine can be preached from what is written in Scripture because they never were written.
Secondly, no Thunders doctrine has produced the desired results and taken those believers to Heaven.
They represent a case of good advertising and much hype but no vertical action, because nobody was caught up.
Sadly, some of the vocal Thunders believers are lying horizontal in their graves.
So there are few that will stay with Scripture and wait for the seven Thunders to utter after the resurrection of the dead.
MATTHEW 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.LUKE 12:32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
He is not speaking about a big group at the end.
LUKE 18: 8 Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh,
shall he find faith on the earth?
Jesus never saw many Bible believers at the end time.
ROMANS 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
You can only build up your faith on Scripture. Not quotes.
When the Lord returns, very few will be believing what is in the Bible. They will be running after quotes and their interpretation of those quotes.
I SAMUEL 15:17 And Samuel said,
When thou wast little in thine own sight,
wast thou not made the head of the tribes of Israel, and the LORD anointed thee king over Israel?
God is more impressed with humility.
Humility does not mean that we think less of ourselves. Humility means we think of ourselves less.
Our opinions and interpretations cannot take the place of Scripture.
It does not pay to puff up our self-importance nor the importance of another man.
LUKE 19:17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant:
because thou hast been faithful in a very little,
have thou authority over ten cities.
Being Scriptural in what we believe is how we become faithful to the Word, which is God.
I CORINTHIANS 5:6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
When we get one revelation wrong, that error leads on to other errors until we are further and further from the truth.
JAMES 3:5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
A few wrong words can produce a wrong picture in our minds.
We understand ideas by creating pictures in our minds.
Once the picture is wrong, we can never fit the Scriptures into it properly and we stop using Scriptures to define our faith. Then our faith is built on sand and actually becomes unbelief.
REVELATION 3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans
Jesus does not write to the church in Laodicea, as He writes to the church in Philadelphia etc.
He writes to the church of the Laodiceans. It is their church, not God’s.
They have their own human leaders who are the pastors that rule the church.
They have their own doctrines built on the quotes that they like.
They splice and interpret specific quotes in order to be regarded as clever.
Their church is impressive with drums and beat music. Great entertainment and showbiz. But nowhere are drums mentioned in Scripture.
Being the church of the Laodiceans, the Word is missing because Jesus stands outside the church door. However, they do not know that He is missing ("and knowest not") because they are too intent on impressing each other.
In this modern age of competitive Christianity, each church claims to be the best.
Little groups meet in houses
MATTHEW 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
He promised to bless little groups when they gather. Not big groups.
ROMANS 16:5 Likewise greet the church that is in their house.
Small groups meeting in a home was the way the first church age started. No person can become too important while the church is a small group. Nor can anyone get too rich.
Remember Jesus threw the money makers out of the Temple.
Now the wealthy pastors throw Jesus, the written Word, out of their churches.
II THESSALONIANS 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Many will fall away before the end comes. So do not be too impressed with big churches.
Thanks to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic people are staying at home and linking up in small groups by means of computer and cellphone programs like ZOOM.
Jesus preached a parable about a man who prepared a great feast and invited many people.
God invites many saved Christians to the wedding supper of the Lamb. But does He accept them all?
The parable says, No.
LUKE 14:16 Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:
17 And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
18 And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.But God only invites us if we follow the Bible path to approach Him.
We cannot approach Him our own way.
None of these saved Christians stay with Scripture.
They are all otherwise preoccupied with their own interests. They all prefer to do their own thing. So please excuse us for not being Scriptural, but we have these clever theories that we have invented from certain quotes.
They expect God to be impressed with the “clever” way that they have chosen to serve God.
After all it is their church, the church of the Laodiceans. So they can do as they wish. It is not God’s church.
LUKE 14:24 For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.
A blunt answer.
God is not impressed with modern-day churches and their important pastors. He does not want them as His Bride.
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?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.Great achievements mean nothing if we do not obey Scripture.
So someone had to be found to eat the supper.
LUKE 14:23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
The rough guys and the bad guys, the outcasts of society, live in the highways and hedges.
The good, saved Christians prefer denominational beliefs to the King James Version of the Bible. So God rejects them and calls in the bad guys.
Today, the self-righteous Christians around the world reject President Trump because he has a bad track record as a person. Christians cannot change their thinking even though he won the election against all odds. He never should have won it.
Why did he succeed?
Because he is the first President to go against world opinion that voted 128 to 9 in the United Nations to stop Jerusalem being declared the capital of Israel. All the Christian nations voted against Jerusalem being the capital. Bill Clinton, George Bush, and Obama were nice guys who never had the courage to stand up to all the Muslim countries. They feared Allah more than what they feared Jesus.
128 nations voted against God. Nine voted for God. That just shows how few will serve God in the end.
So this is the parable of the end time.
If the good guys will not do it God’s Scriptural way, then the bad guys will be invited to serve God.
We learn that the bad guys have far more courage than the good guys. President Trump has helped to fulfill two thousand years of prophecy concerning the return of the Jews to Jerusalem. What an honour. Just like Cyrus the Persian who sent the Jews back to Jerusalem from Babylon.
To stand alone. To be a few at the end. That takes a lot of courage.
1965 EPHESIAN CHURCH AGE - CHURCH AGE BOOK CPT.3
Since you now understand how we judge what the True Church was like (what she was at Pentecost and what she was in the apostolic age as set forth in the Word in the Book of Acts) we can apply the same rule to show us how the church failed. The basic error, or errors, that crept into the first church and were revealed in the Book of Acts and Revelation and also in the Epistles will become more and more visibly manifested in each subsequent age,
until we come to a complete blackout of truth in the last, or Laodicean Age.
Now out of this first key that we have received of the Lord, there comes another and slightly less wonderful truth. I said that the True Church would always try to be like it was in the Book of Acts. That is exactly right. But we have discovered that the Word also teaches
an invasion of error until there is a complete blackout of truth in the last day when the Lord is about to appear.
MATTHEW 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
PROVERBS 30:24 There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise:
25 The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer;Ants are always busy. In summer they lay up food for the winter. We should be taking the quotes back to Scripture and then believing the doctrine because the Scripture says so, not because brother Branham says so. This is the time of the former rain, the teaching rain. Now we have time to learn.
The latter rain is the harvest rain when the seed is pulled off the plant. The dead are pulled out of their graves and the Bride is pulled off the earth and taken up to Heaven. That is what the mighty Angel comes down to achieve. Thanks to brother Branham’s teachings, the written Bible should be an open Book to us. If it is not, you will not be part of that final move.
You will need to find the unwritten seven Thunders hidden away in Scripture somewhere when they utter. So make sure that you know the written Scriptures.
This website was established to help everyone to make that search.
But a little group will make it.
Now, when we should be learning how to interpret the Bible from brother Branham’s quotes.
PROVERBS 30:26 The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks;
These are rock rabbits. We are also weak just like them but we must learn to hide in the Rock which is Christ, the revealed Word.
