A New Zealand Time Frame (‘time’ = 3rd Dimension)
Continued from Cloud Aotearoa – 20th Century)
Three years before the 1963 Cloud appearance, the prophet (William Branham) laid out clearly what has become known as the Seven Church ‘Ages’, which are given in the table below. At that point it became possible to place all of New Zealand history into a Biblical time-frame. The seven men, referred to as messengers or angels in the book of Revelation are shown with their respective ‘age’. The ages are named after places that existed 2000 years ago, and cover the period of time, in sequence, up until 1956.
|The Second Coming Period, Divided into Seven ‘Church Ages’.
‘..The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.’ (Rev 1:20)
|‘AGE’ NAME||TIME SPAN||MESSENGER / ANGEL|
|Ephesus (Rev 2:1-7)||53-170 A.D.||Paul (About AD 5 – AD 67)|
|Smyrna (Rev 2:8-11)||170 – 312 A.D.||Irenaeus (About 130 – 202)
|Pergamos (Rev 2:12-17)||312 – 616 A.D.||Martin (315 – 399)
|Thyatira (Rev 2:12-29)||606 -1520 A.D.||Columba (521 – 597)
|Sardis (Rev 3:1-6)||1520 – 1750 A.D.||Martin Luther (1483 – 1546)
|Philadelphia (Rev 3:7-13)||1750 – 1906 A.D.||John Wesley (1703 – 1791)
|Laodicea (Rev 3:14-22)||1906 – 1956 A.D.||William Branham (1909 – 1965)
The messengers are referred to as ‘eyes’ (seers or prophets), and it is under the age or influence of John Wesley that the Europeans arrived here. The Maori that were Supernaturally aware Continue reading
