Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity, which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life, and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun.


The Next Big Event

Posted: 05 December 2012


Has everything been said and done? The answer must be YES. Then what is going to happen next? The end of the world in Dec. 21, 2012 because the Mayan Long Count calendar did not go further than that? Is it the same as the ending of the world systems?

The Aztecs which precedes the Incas also have their own Sun, Moon and Stars based calendars but they were more populous in Central America including Peru. It is understood that both the Aztecs and Mayans practised human sacrifices. This practice could have caused the demise of both empires as we learned from the previous article on the Tree of Life that God do not accept the sacrifices of human lives. Such practices could only be inspired by man, in this case the priesthood exerting authority over other men.

Message believers know that ever since this message has come forth, it has not produced any denomination because denomination denotes headship of man over man as were in the days of the Israelites when they wanted a king over them instead of the Holy Spirit guiding them by way of a prophet. The Word of God even has a name for such. The word "Nicolaitans".

Revelation 2:6 KJV
(6)  But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

This is what Brother Branham said about Nicolaitans. How it started when they elected the deacons in the early church age and one of them Nicholes started the idea of having man above man instead of God above man.

  150    Now, the 6th verse. Now, here's the one we're going to have trouble with. Now, except you repent, He'll come and move the pastor away.
But this thou has,...
Now, remember. Oh, don't miss this now. This is going to lock the rest of it together plumb on down to this age we're in now. Everybody feeling good, first? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] Are you in a hurry? [Congregation says, "No."--Ed.] All right, now. All right, bear just a little bit then. [A brother in congregation says, "Stay all night."--Ed.] Now... Thank you.
But this thou h
as,... (They had something then, didn't they? Now, what did they have?)... that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.
"You hate those deeds of the Nicolaitanes." Setting in the study today up there, I wrote something here on that; I want you to listen closely now in a couple pages here. The 6th verse, praises and agreed; that's God and the church agreed upon one thing, that they hated the deeds of the Nicolaitanes. The true vine, the true vine, the true church that was in this Ephesian church...

  153    Now, remember, each church has its formals and each church has its spirituals. That's the twins that's born in every revival and lives in every church. They started it right in this age and it ends up in this age. And finally, the formals took it over in the Thyatira age, and Luther pulled it back out again. And now it's swinging right back in again. Can you see that formal religion? There's no difference between that and Catholicism. It's all the same thing. Every organization's butchered right into it. God never did organize His church. That's exactly what they was trying to do here. And you watch and see now if that isn't right, just show you how cursed an organiz
ation is. It was--it was foreign to the new church, the New Testament church. See?

  154    But... thou... But this thou has, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.
The true vine hated the formal deeds of the Nicolaitanes; so did God. What was deeds in the Ephesian church, in the church of Ephesians, became a doctrine in the Pergamos church. In Ephesus the first church, it was a deeds, in the next church it become a doctrine. Can you hear it? Do you understand it now? It was a deed in Ephesus, and watch, over here in Pergamos it became a doctrine. It just started here in a little baby form. Now, in a minute we're going to find out what that was. Here is Paul's wolves: "deeds of the Nicolaitanes."

  155    Now, what... Let's break that word down and find out what we got before we go any farther. The word "Nicolaitane" is kind of a foreign thing to me. I got every Greek lexicon that I could find. "Nicolaitane" come from the word of Nicko, N-i-c-k-o (Wait, I believe I wrote it down here.) N-i-c-k-o, Nicko, which means "to conquer or to overthrow." Nico-laitanes, "overthrow or conquer the laity." What they were trying to do here was trying to take the church where God had pastors, and the Spirit of God moving by gifts in the churc
h of the living God, and they were having a doctrine start that they were going to have some priests, and bishops, and popes, and so forth. That God said He hated. He hates it yet today. Nico-laitanes (Nico, "overcome") or, "overthrow the laity." The laity is the church. How many knows the laity is the church?

  156    All right, "Overthrow or conquer, or take place of the laity..." In other words, take all of the sacredness, all of the power from the church, and put it over on the priests; "Let the congregation live the way it wants to, but the priest is the holy one." Taking the Holy Ghost away from the people with signs and wonders following them, and take that away and give them a holy priesthood: taking a
way the Holy Ghost and swapping It for a priesthood. You see what it was? It was a... It finally became...

The above excerpt was taken from the Church Age Book on the Ephesian Church Age. Notice, the Revelation of Jesus Christ given to John at the Isles of Patmos was that He hates the deeds of Nicolaitans. The deeds that started then eroded the power of the Church by the Holy Spirit and men began to substitute their own ideas instead of hearing the prophets. This culminated into the formation of the image to this beast, and became the bedrock of organized religion. It is actually religious mafiaism and men bowed down to it. Kowtowed is a better term. Being subjugated to ideas of men's interpretation of the Bible. But we know all these things happening is coming to a boiling point of the Big Event. We are now in the thick of it. The transition (I almost wrote transification!) from corruption into incorruption is right at our door steps.

We know there is a time of tribulation of 3 ½ years after the going away of the church – the Bride. That is according to Paul who wrote in 1st Corinthians and 1st Thessalonians.

1 Corinthians 15:51-58 KJV
(51)  Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all s
leep, but we shall all be changed,
(52)  In a moment, in t
he twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
(53)  For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
(54)  So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
(55)  O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
(56)  The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
(57)  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
(58)  Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 KJV
(13)  But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
(14)  For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
(15)  For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
(16)  For the Lord himself shall descend from he
aven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
(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.
(18)  Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

There is no more mystery to this. Paul knew of it though it was not revealed to him, When ? He looked for it as Abraham and Sarah looked for it. The city whose builder and maker is God.  When Jesus was on earth, when He commissioned His disciples, He told them , “Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans” but rather go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel:-
Matthew 10:5-15 KJV
(5)  These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
(6)  But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
(7)  And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
(8)  Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
(9)  Provide neit
her gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,
(10)  Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.
(11)  And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.
(12)  And when ye come into an house, salute it.
(13)  And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
(14)  And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
(15)  Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

Oh there are so many things to be said of this "the workman is worthy of his meat". He did not even give them any money or big steeples or building or asked them to start any schools, not even an extra coat, or another pair of shoes nor staves. But He gave His WORD!

God is on time and on schedule. He is never out of sync with His own fulfillment of His own Word as He swore by no greater than Himself by an Oath "Yet Once More, He will shake the heaven and not only the Earth. He started the flag off in this race against unbelief as Sata
n tries to pervert His Word through the ages but God has always send out a standard against that. When Jesus was on earth, so was Judas. When Jacob was born, so was Esau. In the beginning, there were twins. One good and one evil. One believer and one unbeliever. That singleness alone, of being a believer separates the twins. It brought life to the believer but death to the unbeliever.

The bible said, the Soul that sinneth shall die. There must first be the first call and then the rejection of the Word before the plague falls. Warning first then when that warning goes unheeded, judgment follows. The final outcome is to be played out in this one final event, the cathcing away of the Bride before Judgment falls. The warning of it being the worst than the last day of Pompei. The eruption of the Volcano Vesuvius started on the morning of the 24th of August, AD 79, about 9 years after the sacking of Jerusalem, when General Titus and his son violently overthrew the Jewish Temple and the
great city, Blood flowed like rivers of water. Nine (9) years later, Pompeii, a Roman city was in ruins and people died entombed even encrusted instantly by hot lava ashes, with not a single blood .........

Roxbury-LA which even the press using the descriptive word The people of Pompeii were having parties, what they call "the time of their lives". Much of what we know happened then was recorded through the eye witness of a younger Pliny (a Roman administratore and poet) whose letters gave us vivid accounts of the catastrophe. In other words, the people were warned and should have fled the area but they did not and chose to stay. Dulled and desensitized perhaps by too many doomsday forecasters which were inaccurate, they went about their daily tasks just like any other day. They were caught unexpectedly frozen in time in such daily chores.

Hence the prophecy by Brother Branham of the sinking of Los Angeles and in fact the whole Californian vicinit
y, a large chunk of land measuring 1500 miles chunk by 300 or 400 miles wide sliding maybe 40 miles deep into the ocean causing the greatest Tsunami, a mile deep tidal wave that will weep itself into the desert and the Salton Sea! How vivid does one want? Are the californians heeding this warning? Not by a long shot. Not especially if come December 21, 2012, no great catastrophe happens. The following prophecy was given in 29th April 1965!

  222      All the Body, sealed in, just keeping It in step. I ain't saying it's that way. I hope it isn't that way. But, friend, when it lets...
223    If we got a feel in our heart, tonight, that we should straighten up our lives, and the things that we have done, let me advise you, as a minister brother. I'm going to say this for my first time, over the pulpit. I've stretched out farther tonight, on This, than I have on anything else, any time, anyhow, before the public, because I've had a great freedom in these meetings. If you believe me to be God's prophet, you listen to what I've told you. If there's one little tinkle of feeling in your heart, you go to God right now. You do it.

  224      Stop just a minute, men. Look at your--your creeds that you serve. Look in your churches. Is it just exactly with the Word of God? Have you met every qualification? Say, "I'm a good man." So was Nicodemus, and so was all the rest. They--they were fine. See? That don't have nothing to do with It.
225    And, women, I want you to look in the mirror, and look what God requires a woman to do. And see in God's mirror, not in your church mirror now, in God's mirror; and see if you could qualify, in your life, the spiritual Bride of Jesus Christ.
226    Ministers, think the same. Do you cut corners here, to save somebody's feelings over yonder? Would you do this if it wasn't... and they'll put you out of the church? If you are feeling that way, my dear brother, let me warn you, in the Name of Jesus Christ, flee from that right now.
227    And, lady, if you can't measure up to the qualification of a Christian, not as a nominal Christian; but in your heart, and your life is patterned exactly like God's marriage certificate here says it has to be.
228    And, church member, if your church isn't like that, can measure up to God's qualification of His Word, get out of it and get into Christ.

  229      That is solemn warning. We don't know what time, and you don't know what time, that this city one day is going to be laying out here in the bottom of this ocean.
230    "Oh, Capernaum," said Jesus, "thou who exalted into heaven, will be brought down into hell. For, if the mighty works had been done in Sodom and Gomorrah, it'd have been standing to this day." And Sodom, Gomorrah lays in the bottom of the Dead Sea. And Capernaum is in the bottom of the sea.
231    Thou city, who claims to be the city of the Angels, who has exalted yourself into heaven, and sent all the dirty, filthy things of fashions and things, till even the foreign countries come here to pick up our filth and send it away, to your fine churches and steeples, and so forth, the way you do. Remember, one day you'll be laying in the bottom of the sea, your great honeycomb under you right now. The wrath of God is belching right beneath you. How much longer He will hold this sandbar hanging out over that? When, that ocean out yonder, a mile deep, will slide in there, plumb back to the Salton Sea. It'll be worse than the last day of Pompeii. Repent, Los Angeles.

232    Repent, the rest of you, and turn to God. The hour of His wrath is upon the earth. Flee while there's time to flee, and come into Christ.

Note the accuracy of the prophecy :

  • -great honeycomb under..
  • -Wrath of God belching below...(Naval geologists or similar found that the base was honey-combed).
  • - Sandbar hanging out over there..(Just hanging out without support beneath)
  • - Ocean out yonder, a mile deep sliding in
  • - plumb back to the Salton Sea (which is 250 feet below sea level)
  • -Worse than the last day of Pompeii
  • - Los Angeles, as was Capernaum -calling itself the city of the angels but instead they sent out filth
(editor: While answering a critic, I posted about the prophecy of honeycomb and sandbar. So today, 16th Sep 2015, I did a search by typing "is California resting on firm foundation" and I got a host of hits, some highly secretive, because it involves the US Navy. In one article, it mentioned two submarines were missing, USN THRESHER (April 10, 1963 AND USN SCORPION, missing date not clear yet,  and that below, they found a labyrinth of caves, even one suggesting that the open spaces with 600 ft high columns were UFO's secret entrance). However this one is very interesting:-
Williams (John J, Williams) explains that not "all" of the areas in question are actually "resting" or "floating" on the ocean, however there are allegedly many subterranean cavities below the western U.S., and they are not limited to California, and many of them consist of very large water-filled aqua-systems. These have been explored via nuclear submarines to several hundred miles inland, particularly in the region of southern California and the southern Oregon - northern California area. Williams continues:

Further, one particular detail is striking :
"7. What is being passed off as the 'San Andreas Fault' are large, unsupported chambers that are in the process of collapsing. When the BIG ONE finally hits, many scientists in the know believe that most of California will break off like a cold Hershey bar and slide into the ocean! (it is postulated by some that an ancient land-mass which some believe may have been connected to what is now California, broke off and sunk into the ocean during an ancient cataclysm - Branton)

I dare not go further in this open article. Consider the three curtains, Iron, Bamboo and Purple in the previous article. Do we know the implication of this happening ? Flee while there's time to flee and come into Christ, the only safety.
