Uzziah and Pentecost

2 Chronicles 26: 16 - 19: But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the LORD his God, and went into the temple of the LORD to burn incense upon the altar of incense. And Azariah the priest went in after him, and with him fourscore priests of the LORD, that were valiant men: And they withstood Uzziah the king, and said unto him, It appertaineth not unto thee, Uzziah, to burn incense unto the LORD, but to the priests the sons of Aaron, that are consecrated to burn incense: go out of the sanctuary; for thou hast trespassed; neither shall it be for thine honour from the LORD God. Then Uzziah was wroth, and had a censer in his hand to burn incense: and while he was wroth with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead before the priests in the house of the LORD, from beside the incense altar.

When Jesus came, He would be King and Priest. Uzziah had to stay as a king, but he was trying to get ahead of the plan of God. He was from Judah, and the priesthood was in Levi; he tried to unite the priesthood and the kingship before the right time. God was going to unite Levi and Judah together in Jesus.

Uzziah usurped the priesthood and became a leper who would need to be examined by a priest (the very office that he attempted to manipulate) according to the Old Testament Law.

Uzziah is a type of Pentecost which glorified itself and was smitten with leprosy (spiritual death) when Brother Branham preached “Indictment” on July 7, 1963.

Isaiah 6: 1: In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.

Brother Branham indicted the denominations for the second crucifixion of Jesus Christ (they had pierced Him with false doctrine); it smote the denominational world (including Pentecost) with leprosy (spiritual death).

The year that Uzziah died was the same year the LORD was seen on high in Glory.

The year that Pentecost died (1963) was the same year that the LORD showed His face in the Cloud above Arizona on February 28, 1963.
