Life and Times of Brad Baker
1 Hi, My name is Brad Baker. During the time between 1965 to 1973 I grew up as a teenage hippie that moved from Vancouver’s English Bay next to Stanley Park to San Jose Calif. in the fall of 1967. 2 I also had my first motorcycle at 15 that was a Harley so the biker culture was also a big part of my life at the time. 3 Joining the US Marine Corp was also high on my list but the migraines that I started getting after I turned 18 made me come to a conclusion that I would have been a hinderance more than a benefit to the USMC. 4 My nick name was Grizzly Adam’s back in those days because I looked like Dan Haggerty and my love for the Grizzly Bears.
5 After that I went back to my roots in 1977 and got involved in Rodeos bronc riding and calf roping and worked on a few ranch’s and cattle feedlots as well. We were rounding up cattle one time on the Lowen’s ranch around Elko BC in the early 1980’s where I met George Warnick and we would have a few Church meetings there from time to time. I was riding an old stallion called Balls. He wanted to run so I let him and the owner’s son knew there was a Philly in heat at the end of the field. By the time he caught up to us, Balls was out of control and was trying to mount the Philly with me riding him. He was 22 years old at the time and was a dangerous ride. He tried to run me into the broken branches sticking out from the jack pines many times. I went on to truck driving and hauling concrete with truck or trailer for 23 years since then. 6 My lifestyle interest today are especially in music and playing the guitar to over 350 songs that I play at least once every two weeks by playing about two hours everyday which works out to about 1000 songs per month.
7 After I left the USA and came back up to Canada in 1978 and I found a Church to go to that was called Christian Restoration and Revival Assemblies with Phil & Mildred Treadwell in Calgary and then on to Immanuel Church with John Lucus Jr II. who was the Pastor. 8 John Lucus II was the overseer of a Street Church that I was assist Pastor of called the Upper Room in the late 80’s. 9 Immanuel Church was very much connected to Glad Tidings in Vancouver. 10 After we shut down the Upper Room I attended Immanuel Church and practiced my fiddle playing there during the song service and eventually learnt note for note what the keyboard player “John’s wife” was playing which helped me to play bluegrass & western swing music on it which I was into at the time.
11I had known people such as Reg Layzell, George Warnick, Bob Mumford, Dick Iverson, Kevin Conner, Maureen Gaglardi who had influenced my life and had read many of their books like The Power of His Presence, The Tabernacle of Moses and David, and the Path of the Just. 12 These books went into great detail of the Old Covenant system that foreshadowed things to come in Christ.
13 In 1990 I attended a Prophecy Seminar that the Seventh Day Adventist had going on for about a month and after that I joined with them while living in Victoria BC. where Don Stoyanowski was the Pastor of. Don was looking for someone to choose from to be an assistant Pastor of the Victoria Church and he was considering Shawn Boonstra or me. 14 Don choose Shawn for the position, he was a traditional kind of man which most Seventh Day Adventist seemed to thrive on and I was just the opposite of that. 15 I had known Shawn and Jean Boonstra well at the time and we had gotten together fairly often. 16 Shawn went on to become the main man for the whole Seventh Day Adventist denomination world-wide which surprised me when I found that out. Shawn Boonstra had stepped down from a position he had and is speaker/director for the Voice of Prophecy ministry from the latest that I heard.
17 Then in 2004 I became a Full Preterist after two years of figuring things out for myself before finding out what Preterism was, but it was through Terry Cropper that convinced me of being a Full Preterist and not a Partial Preterist. Don K. Preston also help get me established in the Full Preterist view. 18 I became friends with Luther Williams when we started to explore what the aftermath of Preterism could be and he was very interested in the Latter Rain Movement and asked if I knew George Warnick who wrote a book called The Feast of Tabernacles so I told him George gave me a bunch of them which I still have three left. 19 Luther told me of Ed Stevens who was open to to explore what the aftermath of Preterism could be so I read an article Ed Steves wrote that inspired me to dig deeper. 20 That led to which what I now call The Manifested Sons of God AD70. 21 My background with the Latter Rain Movement helped bring this all together. 22 I have not attended any Church since 2004 mainly because of my new founded beliefs that was not accepted by anyone nor was I expecting them to.
23 I was involved with the Latter Rain Movement of 1948 from the age of ten years old while living in Vancouver, BC. in 1965 and went to Glad Tidings where Reg Lazell was the Pastor. 24 I was born in Kindersley Saskatchewan just 75 miles away from where the Latter Rain Movement began in North Battleford, Saskatchewan between 1947 and 1948. 25 I got more involved with, it not knowing it back in 1974 after I left High School in San Jose Calif. by going to “Calvary Gospel Temple with Emanuele Cannistraci as the Pastor in 1975 which was the most lively Church in the San Francisco Bay area I knew of that the Ex-Hippies talked a lot of at the time. 26 I became a Christian on March 30 1974 which happened on Eric Clapton’s birthday which was coincidental because Jimi Hendrix passed away on my 15th birthday as well as right in the middle of the Feast of Tabernacles. 27 I got involved in that by going to a Catholic Charismatic prayer meeting after going to a music concert that James O’Connell played at and then started going to Christian Coffee House called the Kiononia Center “meaning Fellowship Center in Greek” in San Jose Calif. for fellowship through the Jesus People Movement that the Hippies started. 28 During that time I meet Barry Mcguire who had a hit song called Eve of Destruction and others like Larry Norman, Chuck Girard and Chris Hillman who were a leaders in a band called Love Song. Chris Hillman was the original bassist and one of the original members of The Byrds, which in 1965 included Roger McGuinn, Gene Clark, David Crosby and Michael Clarke. 29 I had moved into a house with about five of us there including James O’Connell and he was going to do an album with Larry Norman after he produce an album called Power to Love and James wanted me to play some guitar with them when it was to happen but it never did happen. 30 Larry Norman was the founding father of Gospel Rock music which got the Jesus People Movement started. 31 Larry Norman’s biggest hit song that I remember was I Wish We’d All Been Ready. 32 James O’Connell use to be a original Hippie right from San Fancisco’s Haight Ashbury district, he is a guitar player and sings as well. He that had my Step-father John Crompton take the picture for one side of the album called Power to Love. 33 John Crompton also made parts for the camera for first out in space moon walk for NASA while working at Philco Ford’s space aeronautic company in Palo Alto Calif where my Mother and Brother also worked.
34 The Latter Rain Movement had its beginnings in the years following World War II and was contemporary with the evangelical awakening led by Billy Graham, as well as the Healing Revival of Oral Roberts, Jack Coe, and William Branham. 35 The Latter Rain, also known as the New Order or New Order of the Latter Rain, was a post–World War II movement within Pentecostal Christianity which remains controversial. 36 A distinction should be made between: The Latter Rain Revival The Latter Rain Movement Sharon Schools Other groups influenced by the Latter Rain.
37 It was from there that I had heard of the teaching of the manifested Sons of God which William Branham had became noted for. 38 However later on in life I figured out that the new views I had about the Manifestation of the Sons of God that is mentioned in Romans 8:18-25 matched up with full Preterism which believe that the time of the end of the Age according to scripture occurred on August 10th AD70 when the Temple of the Israel people was destroyed which ended the Old Covenant as it was vanishing away since Jesus Christ was crucified as final the sacrifice required by the laws of the Old Covenant.
39 This is where my new journey began especially with who and what the manifestation of the Sons of God was all about according to:
Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waits for the manifestation of the sons of God. 20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now. 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
40 The manifestation of the sons of God became a popular theme in the Latter Day Revival of 1948 with a leader called William Branham. 41 His teachings on it was about the “manifestation of the Sons of God” or “Joel’s Army”. 42 The Latter Rain movement taught that as the end of the age approached, the “Overcomers” would arise within the Church. 43 Various branches debated the nature and extent of this manifestation. 44 These Manifested Sons of God, would be ones who have come into the full stature of Jesus Christ, would receive the Spirit without measure. 45 They would be as Jesus was when he was on earth and would receive a number of divine gifts, including the ability to change their physical location, to speak any language through the Holy Spirit, and to perform divine healings and other miracles. 46 They would complete the work of God, restoring man’s rightful position as was originally mandated in Genesis. 47 By coming into the full stature of Christ, they would usher in his millennial reign. 48 Extreme versions of this interpretation referred to Jesus as a “pattern” Son and applied “ye are gods” (Psalms 82:6) to this coming company of believers.
49 As I began to become more interested in this topic back in 1980 while attending Christian Restoration and Revival Assemblies I came to find out that the Manifestation of the Sons of God actually occurred shortly after August 10th AD70. In 2004 when I became a Full Preterist and the results of what actually happened were not at all what William Branham had taught. 50 This is the reason for this website and to reveal what did happen in the spiritual realm. 51 On this website you will find many topics that I have wrote concerning my views of things that I believe that go beyond Full Preterism and reveal the things that were signified in the scriptures through the typologies that foreshadowed things to come in the Spiritual realm that were not revealed openly but revealed by only ones who could hear what the Spirit of God is saying in the here and now. 52 God’s word can not be chained to the scriptures only, especially beyond the times they were written in the first century. Especially when it comes to the truth of what the typologies meant in the Spiritual realm for the New Heaven & Earth age which we live in. 53 God speaks when ever He wants to those who can hear what the Spirit is saying, but many have muzzled God’s mouth from speaking never again and only use the authoritative written words from the scriptures.
54 The Manifested Sons of God AD70 is mainly about how mankind was saved from the inherited spiritual death and separation from God that Adam experienced from the day that he sinned. 55 The transition of Adam being the father of mankind with all of mankind inheriting Adam’s sin and death to being made alive by Christ happened at the end of the old Covenant Age and everyone post AD70 becoming the offspring the ” Bride and Groom” the first century Church and Jesus Christ” after what the scripture called the Marriage of the Lamb had taken place in the Spiritual and Heavenly realm. 56 This Manifested Sons of God AD70 view embraces all of mankind together as brothers and sister no matter what and no matter who all into one in Christ as our Everlasting Father who’s new name is Immanuel meaning God with us. 57 We then choose whether to enter in through the gates and eat from the Tree of Life or dwell in outer darkness as we all go through the refining fire while alive on Earth where Jesus Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords over all the nations of the Earth including the Kingdom of Heaven and the Kingdom of Darkness forever. 58 Then when we physically die our Spirit goes back to God and as individuals we either go on spiritual alive dwelling in the Kingdom of Heaven or be cast into the Lake of Fire which is the new or second death that God prepared for the Devil and His Angels with either a resurrected Immortal Spirited Being’s body or just Mortal Spirited Being’s body.
Strange Coincidences I Have Noticed In My Life
59 On April 3rd in the evening just before I went for a walk through the park in hypertensive crises mode with my blood pressure spiking into the 200’s that my medication could have been causing because half of it was an ACE inhibitor and later finding out I had Covid. 60 I had just finished an article that I wrote called: The Hereafter Body Resurrection “HBR”. I was in a rush to get it published on April 1st into my website just I case I died from a stroke or brain aneurism and would get to see my new Immortal Spirited Being’s Body sooner than I wanted to and the article would have never been known. 61 I was thinking this could be the end of my life for me. 62 I remembered when someone that I was close to at one time called me a real Einstein more than once back in 2011 when we had connected through social media after not seeing each other in about 33 years. 63 The person called me Einstein because I was just getting started with my New Heaven and Earth eschatology views that no one that I ever knew had ever thought about before at least to the degree that I was at the time. 64 Einstein is best known for developing the theory of relativity, but he also made important contributions to the development of the theory of quantum mechanics. 65 Relativity and quantum mechanics are together the two pillars of modern physics. 66 They gave me straight D’s in English so I would pass my grade ,which should have been F’s because I never did anything in the class but I got straight A’s in Math after going to summer school in after grade 9 because I would have failed it other wise and would have had to go back to school for another year if I did not pass it. 67 The person who called me Einstein also went to the same summer school the same years I did. 68 I thinks it’s fair that I do a life comparison of myself with Albert Einstein just to prove that we were not at all alike but total oppisites. 69 I was developing the New Heaven and Earth Eschatology based on Full Preterism views that are based on typology from the scriptures of the Bible. 70 Albert Einstein was Jewish but he was not a believer. 71 Albert Einstein and I are the opposites of each other so I am no Einstein. 72 Maybe in a Spiritual sense I am but that comes with a process throughout my lifetime begin involved with Christianity which would be the centre point between the Jewish religion and New Heaven and Earth Eschatology with the Manifestation of the Sons of God. 73 I had an interest in typology like many others had that I learnt from the Latter Rain Movement and later on in life Full Preterism which brought me to where I am at now. 74 While most Preterist do not explore beyond the time of AD70 when all that the Prophets spoke of were fulfilled in AD70, that just made me curious as some others are with what about now in the New Heaven and Earth that is not so new now but almost 2000 years old. 75 In other words what have we been missing out on in this mystery while the world went through this dark age of getting it all wrong that we are still currently living in.
76 So before I went for this walk I looked up Albert Einstein on the internet and here is what I found as some strange coincidences though Albert are I as more like total opposites for values in life yet similar within our own ways.
77 Albert Einstein was born on March 14th 1879 and I was born in September 18th 1955 which is almost 6 months of the year apart and are considered opposites. 78 Albert Einstein died on 18 April 1955 the year I was born. 79 Albert Einstein died right in the middle of the Feast of Unleavened Bread and I was born in the middle of the Feast of Tabernacles. 80 Albert Einstein was a Liberal but I’m a US Constitutional Conservative with a very few liberal views and the only party that comes close to that would be the Republicans. 81 The rest lean to far into Marxism for me.
82 About the only thing we have in common would be our love for music. 83 Einstein developed an appreciation for music at an early age. In his late journals he wrote: “If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music… I get most joy in life out of music. 84 He played a violin and use to play a fiddle. 85 My Grandfather who I take after play a fiddle as well as a banjo and maybe a few other things. 86 I have a picture him, myself and my son when he was about 4 when he started playing all standing there with fiddles in our hands. 87 I started my son playing one when he was about 3 or 4 and he use to play a washtub bass that I made when I was into Bluegrass music while I play a guitar. 88 I played that washtub a few times as well but now I don’t have it I just play a Fender Percussion Bass and a Hofner Violin Bass.
89 Albert Einstein was self taught and so am I. 90 I did not learn much from anyone else and through the decades I only have been able to break through with my playing recently in the last few years. 91 I play over 350 and play over 450 every two weeks playing the guitar about 2 hours everyday to 16 playlist two of which are for the bass guitar which I just started to play recently in the last few months. 92 I started right away with a picking style so that I would be using all of my fingers. 93 The first two finger on both hands for the root chord, the middle two for the fourth chord and the last two for the fifth chord and if any other chords are in the song I plan on using just my first and smallest finger. 94 That way if would be able to get my fingers use to be used and if someone like another guitar player knew my style they could be able to tell what chords were being played. 95 I was always impressed when I saw another bass player using all finger like the Bass player for The Who did.
96 In a German-language letter to philosopher Eric Gutkind, dated 3 January 1954, Einstein wrote: 97 The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. 98 No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this. … For me the Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions. 100 And the Jewish people to whom I gladly belong and with whose mentality I have a deep affinity have no different quality for me than all other people. … I cannot see anything “chosen” about them.
101 Whereas I the word of God is everything to me and God is Spirit and Truth. 102 I see the Bible full of typology of types that foreshadowed antitypes in the Spiritual realm that totally have fascinated me for over forty years that is no way but nothing other than the more miraculous book ever written by men who were inspired by the Holy Spirit and could hear what the Spirit was saying. 103 A few people have contributed much by digging in and dissecting every word in Greek and Hebrew for there meanings which is great for getting a better idea for the right interpretations but they can never be relied on by that alone. 104 Neither hearing from the Spirit or doing the research of the Greek and Hebrew languages should be shunned but there should be some kind of balance in both.
105 Einstein’s political view was in favour of socialism and critical of capitalism, which he detailed in his essays such as “ Why Socialism
106 He later adopted a more moderated view, criticizing their methods but praising them, which is shown by his 1929 remark on Vladimir Lenin: “In Lenin I honour a man, who in total sacrifice of his own person has committed his entire energy to realizing social justice. 107 I do not find his methods advisable. 108 One thing is certain, however: men like him are the guardians and renewers of mankind’s conscience.
109 He strongly advocated the idea of a democratic goal government that would check the power of nation-states in the framework of a world federation. 110 He wrote “I advocate world government because I am convinced that there is no other possible way of eliminating the most terrible danger in which man has ever found himself.” The FBI created a secret dossier on Einstein in 1932, and by the time of his death his FBI file was 1,427 pages long
111 I guess maybe this is where we get the saying of the New World Order from or it was just something at the time Albert Einstein agreed with that came out from the League of Nations formed in 1920.
112 To me that is something that I believe would be like trying to reconstruct the Tower of Babel and would never work. 113 People now know better and that Vladimir Lenin was a monster who killed millions of his own people. 114 The only one who could ever rule over all the Nations in a just way is Jesus Christ and He does but only in the Spiritual realm while all others don’t but having the US Congress gives the world the best it can as an example how to keep dictators out. 115 Can you image with trying to get China, Russia, Iran or having the Technocrats on board with a Dictators taking over our God given human rights. 116 Unless there would be someway of controlling all that so that no human rights would ever be violated and that would included the first and second amendment of the Bill of Rights and US Constitution in all. 117 And make it a very serious felony for those who ever even tried. 118 In other words even if they tried to bring up a Bill to change one or any or all of them. 119 Anything acting against the Bill of Rights opens to door to tyranny and once lost would make it extremely hard to ever get them back especially in the world we live in today with all its high technology. 120 The USA needs to expand this kind of ideology so that the world does not give into a New World Order based in Marxism of any kind while maintaining bordered nations so that they each have their own culture and individualism and Govern their own people accordingly without other nations getting it the way. 121 Let Christ rule over them in the Spiritual realm and go against all enemies who hate freedom and bring them down to a place where they would accept it. 122 To allow Satan to rule over the nations is not a good choice in the name of freedom, liberty and justice for all with Marxism or Islamic tyranny which is for evil.
123 Here are some other strange coincidences that I have noticed in my life. My Grandfather was 52 years old when I was born. 124 Then I noticed my Stepfather was born 26 years after my Grandfather and I was born 26 years after my Stepfather. 125 Then my son was born 26 years after I was born makes that 26 years in between us all. My Grandmother was 42 when I was born and my Mother was born in the middle 21 years before me.
126 Jimi Hendrix who was my favourite musician died on my 15th birthday. 127 I began my faith in God on March 30 1974 which was on Eric Clapton birthday. 128 I have two lefthand guitars reset upside down and only use those two for the two and a half hours of Jimi Hendrix tunes that I play. 129 One of the guitars is tuned hand a step down for Eb tuning. 130 The other is standard tuning and looks just like the one that Jimi Hendrix has been said to have killed Eric Clapton with in a song called Killing Floor. 131 Eric Clapton is know as the slow hand and he was jamming with Jimi Hendrix but turned around and walked off the stage and said man is that guy good. 132 The song was so fast that Clapton could not keep up to Jimi playing it so it has been said that Jimi killed Clapton who was considered the guitar god and after Jimi Hendrix passed away Eric Clapton began playing the Fender Stratocaster in memory of Jimi Hendrix. 133 Up here in Canada songs that a musician wrote who has been died for over 50 years go into the public domain. So that means I can re-write the lyrics and produce them without paying a royalty. 134 That time has passed away with Jimi Hendrix’s songs he wrote. 135 Back in the 80’s I re-wrote about a 100 songs but threw them all away because they were not what I would want to present now after knowing what I know now. Maybe someday I will do some more writing of new songs from y conscience that I could accept as present day truth.
136 Perhaps the most miraculous piece of writing ever written in the history of mankind was when Moses wrote the Seven Feasts of the Lord in Leviticus 23. 137 If we could never prove anything or any of the events that are written in the Bible just the story of the type and fulfillments as the antitypes in that chapter alone proves the greats miracle of all times and that Moses was like a ancient day Albert Einstein for the Spiritual realm.
138 There are four articles that I’ve written starting with:
Intro to: The Journey Through of the Feasts of the Lord and Holy Convocation Days that played out during the time from Moses to AD70 and the new beginning of the New Heaven and Earth through the types and antitypes. This was like a road map showing us God’s plan of redemption or a prophecy of timed events that would occur before the end of the Age in AD70.
Be sure to read the other three as well called:
The Spring Feasts and Holy Convocation Days Revealed in the Gospels and Book of Acts
The Fall Feasts and Holy Convocation Days Revealed in AD70 in Book of Revelation
Our Personal Journey Through the Feasts of the Lord and Holy Convocation Days
139 Back in 1980 while I was involved in the Latter Rain Movement while attending the Christian Revival & Restoration Assembly with Phil and Mildred Treadwell in Calgary. 140 They would speak of Revelation 12 a lot and they had it right but they missed out on the timing while believing it was something for the future.
