Dear Brothers of Christ,
I am writing to you this time not to disclose vast numbers of deep understandings, but to entreat you in the hope that I can alleviate your concern and present a clear picture for you to see. I myself am in a very good mood thanks to the mercy of Jehovah and of a certain Crown court judge which has removed the thing that has been preventing me from being baptised for the last 27 months. At last I am at liberty to leave the country and approach you personally. This letter is I hope going to explain to you what has been going on in the last year or so and it will tell you who I am.
Brothers, make no mistake, a large stone has been placed right in front of you - do not trip up on this stone! Allow me please to show to you the extent of this stone by asking some rhetorical questions that only you can answer. Whilst I cannot negotiate this hurdle for you, I will try to help you over it in any way that I can and especially by making it fully visible to you. The question is: How many signs do you people need to see before you feel able to respond to my letters which are His calls (1 Sam 3:6,8)?
Does knowledge of the date of Armageddon belong to men? Does knowledge of the number of angels in heaven come from any human understanding of an earthling man? Will a man in Leytonstone determine the date of the destruction of Babylon the Great by his own wisdom? Is the book of Daniel to be unsealed by the flesh or by a man's spirit? Can a person who has not yet been baptised in water, by himself, determine the number of those who have been baptised in holy spirit who will attend the last ten memorials?
I am not asking these questions of you, I am making it plain to you that Jesus is asking these questions of you (Luke 12:36-40). I cannot answer them for you. No, and as regards you people, truly even showing to you the date on which fire comes down from heaven has not induced you to speak! What, do you need more signs even than this? Do you require more than the whole timetable of the kingdom of God? Are the details of all of the 33 resurrections insufficient for your purposes? Well if they are then you are making doubting Thomas look greater than Moses in your apprehension. In fact the story of doubting Thomas is on the verge of being fulfilled again.
However, I well know that it is not my place to make any judgement as to the validity of my letters on behalf of God's people, whatever may have been revealed to me. I therefore find myself in a position approximating Castration! Whilst I may not command a large amount of sympathy over my current predicament from you brothers of the Christ at this time, please extend to me a hearing ear at the least. And to paraphrase the true God's words to Sarai, your name will no longer be 'brothers' because 'Philip' is your name for the purposes of this letter. Hopefully you realise why this is. But it is not my purpose to write to you in riddles, so please indulge my outspokenness and I will show you who I am. I am sure that you would like to know why on earth an unbaptised person in Leytonstone has been sending you all these things! And why, if these things are true, did Jehovah not use his channel, in Brooklyn? May I answer this by citing some bible examples.
Firstly we have the example of Moses and the construction of the Ark (Ex 35:30 - 36:7). Moses, the anointed one of Jehovah, did not build the ark, Bezalel did this, with the help of Oholiab. Bezalel was not a Levite like Moses, and neither was Oholiab. These two, were called directly by Jehovah and by name to build the ark (Ex 35:30-34). The ark represents not only rulership but also salvation as did Noah's ark GEN.
Secondly we have the example of the Samaritan woman. Jesus revealed his identity to her first, rather than to his disciples and he said to them: 'I have food to eat of which you do not know' (John 4:32). Jesus said to her: 'Whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never get thirsty at all, but the water that I will give him will become in him a fountain of water bubbling up to impart everlasting life'. This woman said to Jesus: 'Sir, give me this water, so that I may neither thirst nor keep coming to this place to draw water'. So she gets this water of life first, rather than the disciples. This 'water' is the unsealed meaning of the bible, the 'well' is the Watchtower society, this woman is a covenant about which 'you do not know' (John 4:32), hence all the references to her husbands and lack of them. We will return to this covenant later.
Thirdly we have the example of Samuel (1 Sam 3:1-18), we have now reached the third call from Jehovah to Samuel in this illustration, Samuel was not a priest as we discussed in the Kingdom hall on Friday. The first letter that I sent to you never reached as far as Brooklyn, the second thing that I sent you was LS which was the second call from Jehovah to Samuel and from Samuel to Eli, 'Genesis' was the third. Whereas I did not know definitely that Jehovah was talking about me personally in the bible at the time that I sent you LS, I do know that now (1 Sam 3:7), in fact I knew it before I sent you 'Genesis'. Do not fret over this account, you are not going to fall over backwards and break your necks - literally! Samuel was said to be lying: 'Where the ark of God was' (1 Sam 3:3). This is where I have been lying. Becoming more personal, I am Bezalel, and the scripture which says:
'And he proceeded to fill him with the spirit of God in wisdom, in understanding and in knowledge and in every sort of craftsmanship and for designing devices, for working in gold and silver and copper, and in working of stones to set them and in working of wood to make ingenious products of every sort. And he has put it into his heart that he should teach, he and Oholiab' (Ex 35:31-34)
refers to my associate Oholiab and myself. It also has a temporal value of 16 times, as does verse 35. This is because Jehovah has concluded a covenant with his people of which you are unaware, it is the covenant of Keturah, Abraham's last wife (Gen 25:1-4) who had sixteen sons. The Samaritan woman is also this covenant which lasts 16 times (John 4:12), it therefore came into force in Nisan 1992. There are more witnesses to this covenant and its length of 16 times or to the longer period 16.5 times (which is the length of the entire fulfilment again of Acts 2:7-11), than there have been U-turns in economic policy! E.g. Keturah (Gen 25:1-4, 16 times), Acts 2:17,18 (16 times), Acts 2:7-11 (16.5 times) Doubting Thomas (John 20:27, 16.5 times), The queen of Sheba (1 Kings 10:4-7, 16 times, but thereagain: "She had not been told the half"!, 2 Chron 9:3-6 agrees), Belshazzar's Queen (Dan 5:11,12, 8 times + 8 times). I am not going to go into these things here, for a more detailed explanation of all this call me.
Perhaps you might now feel able to respond yourselves as did Thomas when Jesus made things easy for him. The writer is at a loss to know what else to send to you in order that you might believe that Jesus has come again to inspect his people and to instigate the final revealing of his father's plan to them before Armageddon, to show them all his father's love in advance, to tell the details of this generation, to turn Jacob away from ungodly practices, and to put us all in a position where we can 'Stand firm and see the salvation of Jehovah' (Ex 14:13).
So now you are hereby invited this time by the writer himself, and I entreat you: 'climb on to the chariot and sit down with me, Oh Philip and you greater Samaritans of the second temple, and listen to the reading aloud of the prophet Isaiah, by the one who does not know writing'. For it is I who am empowered over the treasures of the queen of Ethiopia, who is the one referred to by Zephaniah himself when he says:
'From the region of the rivers of Ethiopia the ones entreating me, the daughter of my scattered ones will bring a gift to me' (Zeph 3:10).
This gift bearing daughter of the life giving rivers of Ethiopia is the greater queen Candace, who is the greater queen of Sheba.
Being specific, Jehovah's angel saying: "Rise and go to the south to the road that runs down from Jerusalem to Gaza." (This is a desert road)' (Acts 8:26), was the arrival of the 'Divine plan of the Ages' chart in Brooklyn, which details this road to the end. I am the one who has been 'reading aloud the prophet Isaiah', (Acts 8:28,30) a repeated concept in this account, because I am the one who 'does not know writing', who is given 'the book' and told to 'read this out loud please' (Isaiah 29:10-12, LS). The holy spirit saying to Philip: 'approach and join yourself this chariot' is 'Genesis', specifically page 4 and the words: 'climb aboard'. The person who has guided me (verse 31) is Jesus Christ. The passage of scripture which reads:
'As a sheep he was brought to the slaughter, and as a lamb that is voiceless before its shearer, so he does not open his mouth. During his humiliation the judgement was taken away from him. Who will tell the details of this generation? Because his life is taken away from the earth' (Acts 8:32,33, quoting Isaiah 53:7)
refers to you, I am telling you this, and this is what the scripture in verse 34 is prophesying that I will do, for it says:
'I beg you, about whom does the prophet say this? About himself or about some other man'.
As regards the literal Ethiopian Eunuch the 'prophet himself' was Isaiah and the 'other man' was Jesus. As regards the greater Ethiopian Eunuch (a title of somewhat ambiguous distinction) the 'prophet himself' is Jesus Christ, the word of God, because I am not just unsealing Isaiah, it is the whole bible that I am reading aloud, and the 'other man' is Philip, who is you. Hence we read that Philip 'opened his mouth', having been spoken to by the Eunuch, whereas before this the lamb of Isaiah 53:7 'does not open his mouth' (Acts 8:32). You, Philip are this lamb in the greater meaning, you are similarly the dumb Zechariah (GEN ). And now I beg you to accept this and to speak!! And now that I am no longer prevented from being baptised by the judicial system of England, you Philip, can baptise me. Because the 'body of water', which is referred to twice (Acts 8:36,36), is standing for the greater body of water of the Governing body of the Watchtower Society, who currently do not know what direction they are going in (hence the water). However this whole account is telling them what direction to go in, and I am begging you to listen to the word of God, powerless as I am to do anything myself. Jesus was referring to Queen Candace when he said:
'The queen of the South will be raised up in the judgement with this generation and will condemn it; because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, but, look! something more than Solomon is here' (Mat 12:42).
Yes indeed, something more than Solomon is here, because it was Jesus who was there then and it is Jesus who is here now. And look! the greater queen of the south, who is the greater queen of Sheba, who is the greater queen Candace, who is the greater Keturah, who is the greater Asenath, who is the greater Queen of Belshazzar, who is the greater woman of Samaria, has put 'in power' (Acts 8:27) yours truly, the antitypical eunuch, who is the antitypical Bezalel who is the antitypical Samuel, who is the antitypical Daniel to come and give a gift to him through you. But now the writer is waiting for Jesus' faithful slave to accept this gift on their master's behalf. And until you do I shall remain a eunuch! So please, put me out of my misery and run fast Oh Philip, run alongside and catch me up! Because as yet you do not speak one word of the pure language, which is the language of LS and 'Genesis', and is the water of life from Jesus.
For now you must discern the time of your being inspected (Luke 12:36), because the true God is no longer interested in condemning his people, he is going to save them, and he is going to tell them loudly and with a raised voice that he is going to save them, and he is going to tell them when and how he is going to save them. In that day even the Holy one of Israel himself will actually become silent in his love for you (Zeph 3:14,17). Yes Philip, and now is the time for you people to open your mouth and start declaring the good news about this salvation! And have no fear, for during your humiliation it is you, from whom the judgement will be taken away, because you willingly give your life to be taken away from the earth, into heaven, for the sake of your God, Jehovah (Acts 8:32-35).
