Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God’s unchanging Word.

Thank you, Brethren for your prayers, fasting and emails expressing concern for our Brother imprisoned in his homeland on the false charge of proselytism among Muslims. Thanks especially to two Sister in the USA and Singapore and two Brothers in South Africa and Australia who met his material needs. The world is unaware that one cannot join the Christian Church. Unlike worldly religions, one cannot become a Christian by force of law, proselytism or even self-will. One must be born-again by a clear revelation from Above (Matthew 16:17). Sadly, few people anywhere have met a Christian or understand what Christians believe, and no matter where the live they would not know how find a Christian Church.

Colossians 1:16-17 says that “all things were created and bound together by the Word of God.” And Hebrews 11:3 says, “By faith we understand that the worlds (dispensational ages and sidereal universe) were joined together by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things that appear.” Now because of apostasy in the churches, denominational Christians (so-called), and ignorance within the circle of this Message, the world—not merely the kosmos but also the physical world—is falling apart because there is no glue of faith to hold it together.

On the April 2 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors from the Group of Twenty (G-20) industrialized nations will gather together in London with the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, the President of the World Bank, and Chairmen of the International Monetary and Financial Committee and Development Committee of the IMF and WB, to address the global financial crisis. Together, member countries represent around ninety per cent of global gross national product, eighty percent of world trade (including EU intra-trade) as well as two-thirds of the world’s population. The G-20’s economic weight and broad membership gives the international banksters irresistible leverage over the management of the global economy and financial system, which explains how the upcoming global depression was engineered.

These minions of the Illuminati are working to unite the world together with usury in the stead of the revealed Word of God. It will fall apart, and great will be its fall.

This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.

Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott

Thanks to the Lord in Appreciation for Your Prayers and Support
February 26, 2009 – Last week we informed you by email of a fellow-subscriber, former policeman and now a minister in this Message who was imprisoned pending payment of a fine on the false charge of converting Muslims to Christianity. The Lord answered your effectual, fervent prayers in behalf of our Brother, and the prayers of the saints under his ministry, restoring his liberty and bringing glory to His Name from thankful hearts worldwide. The following letter is addressed to you personally:

Dear Brethren and Sisters in the Lord Jesus Christ,

I am so happy to be one of your fellowship and I hope that I can do some things for the glory of the Lord, preaching the Gospel and Brother William Branham’s teachings and announcing his principles in this life.

I was so glad to hear that our Brothers and Sisters give me support even despite their own needs, really I am so shame and in same time I proud of their help, I can’t find words to explain my joy and happiness about this.

I am 30 years old, I am not married, I hope find a good Sister but I prefer to be without a wife at this time, I see the example of Paul and our Lord Jesus. . . I was living with my family but after this problem I am now staying temporarily with my Brother in soul and flesh, but I think that I must looking for accommodation and work because my situation is very bad at this time, but I thank God in every situation because He permits this for me and He says that all things work for good for those who love God. May the Lord improve my situation in the future.

It has been a very difficult period, grappling against the forces of evil proliferating in our country, Islam with its laws and humanitarian law planned by the hands of men. Unfortunately the nation has sided with the idea that Islam is the only religion in this country, all laws are therefore written for the benefit of this religion!

At the outset, I informed you that I worked within the security apparatus (police), my past experience made me hate the work within this system. I came to know the Lord Jesus in this period and I hated the work more than ever. I left as a result of my faith and cannot bear the things that I see every day. Then the persecution began and its ferocity increased when I started studying the Bible.

I passed by a bitter personal experience, it was that the authorities monitored the mail, one of the brothers had sent me some material and Spiritual things by mail. Going to the Post Office I was arrested and charged with religious incitement to switch Muslims to Christianity and the result was taunting, beating and kicking, abrasive talk, false and unjust sentencing to a fine of about US$800.00 or a fateful six months in prison with the fine. Some of you Brothers and Sisters beside me were paying the fine for me. But what hurt my heart and what hurt me was why the authorities were dealing with me like this and why they make all this evils against me.

Excuse me for this bad English, but be sure that my feeling in my heart is very full with love to all those who making problems to me. Jesus said that we must love our enemies.

We are now, some Christians people in our country, we love to live in peace, and worship our Lord with liberty. All the Brethren sharing me send you a great love in Our King Jesus. God bless and keep you.

Comment: Matthew 25:34-40. Please pray the Lord will make clear the path before our Brethren.

Your Chief Adversary
February 20, 2009 – After watching the quick approval of the so-called stimulus package it ought to be obvious to any thinking person that our so-called legislators, do not legislate. They do not even read proposed legislation before casting their votes.

Someone other than the legislators writes the legislation. Someone other than the senators and representatives decides what must be approved and what must be rejected. The so-called legislators merely put their unthinking sanction on packages they are told to approve. There is no need for them to read the legislation because they are not expected to think about what they are doing. They are not even expected to represent the thinking of voters in their states. There is no sense denying this fact because that is the way it IS. And IS means IS.

This impotence and robotization of legislative bodies was planned many years ago by none other than that crazy Frenchman, Auguste Comte. He made it perfectly clear in his Positive Philosophy that in the future, thinking would no longer be necessary or desirable on the part of most individuals. He wrote . . .

Comment: Our governments are controlled by ‘the City of London’ whose international banksters have set up the nations like tenpins to be struck with financial and economic ruin so they may introduce Lucifer’s totalitarian one world government over a global debtor’s prison. They could be defeated today by introducing import duties and tariffs to return nations to self-sufficiency and productive employment, but politicians worldwide serve ‘the City.’ Aliens write the laws and control the juridical systems, censor media to brainwash the world to receive their propaganda as truth, compose fraudulent histories and write educational curricula.

Horst Mahler receives Six-Year Sentence
Munich, February 25, 2009 — German dissident Horst Mahler has been sentenced to six years in prison for “Volksverhetzung” (racial incitement). The symbolically significant number of years imposed for “anti-Semitic hate speech” stemmed from his refusal to recognize the Jewish Holocaust, which he described as “the biggest lie in world history”. . .

Immediately following sentencing, the 73-year-old dissident was arrested and led away before astonished onlookers in the courtroom, including many of his supporters. The former attorney . . . earlier received prison sentences for thought-crimes on several occasions. “I have resolved to call a lie a lie”. . .

In setting a personal example, Mahler declared that it was incumbent upon every German to “deal a deathblow to the Holocaust religion as martyrs for the truth. . . I have resolved to expose this Talmudic perfidy, that over and over again I will call a lie a lie and oppose it with the truth. I have sworn to my people never to give up in this fight against the Holocaust religion.” Full story: northwestnationalists.blogspot.com

The Mystery of the Living Christ, the same, Yesterday, and Today, and Forever

Colossians 1:17, “[As the Logos] Christ Himself existed before all things, and all things consist—cohere and endure—in the Logos or Word”.

Hebrews 13:8-9, “Jesus Christ [the Word is always] the same yesterday, and today, and forever. Be not led astray by various strange teachings. For it is well to have the heart strengthened by God’s grace, and not to be devoted to dietary rules and ritualistic meals from which devotees [under the Law] have derived no benefit”.

God’s thoughts, which are eternal and real, manifest in palpable dimensions by the exercise of correspondingly certain and eternal revelation. By faith God expressed His thoughts over six days of a thousand years to [Heb. ‘bara’] create all things out of nothing by the ‘third pull’ of His immaterial spoken Word which is the original seed (II Peter 3:8; Luke 8:11). On the seventh day He rested and watched a mist rise up and water the surface of the whole earth and saw seed spoken in the third age of creation [Heb. yatsa’] germinate or “bring forth” vegetation according to His Word. Being inanimate, the Lord had no need to [‘bara’] create it a spirit of life or a soul out of nothing. Having provided grass, herbs, and trees as food and shelter for man and beast He next fashioned the first man, [Heb. ‘yatsar’], squeezing him into shape as a potter molds a vessel of clay and placing in him first the mortal spirit, and then the soul.

Writing in Greek, Paul expressed the same understanding Moses wrote in Hebrew: “Who are you, O man, to criticize God? The thing that was molded does not say to the one that molds it, Why have you made me this way? Has the potter no power over the clay to make from the same lump one vessel for beauty, and another for menial use? What if God, desiring to show His wrath, and to make His power known, with great patience endured the vessels of wrath made for destruction, in order to make known the riches of His glory to the recipients of mercy, whom He predestinated for glory, even us, whom he has called, not only from among the Judahites, but also from among the Gentiles” (Romans 9:20-34)?

The mist that rose up on the seventh day and watered the whole face of the ground, transformed extremely fine particles of dust into clay from which the Lord God [Heb. ‘yatsar’] molded or squeezed Adam into form. His name is derived from the Hebrew ‘adamah,’ which means the existing material of the ground from which he was [Heb. ‘asah’] made. When the Lord metaphorically “breathed the breath of lives into his nostrils,” the non-material elements of spirit and soul that were [Heb. ‘bara’] created out of nothing by His spoken Word, manifest the first living soul (Genesis 1:26-28; 2:6-7).

“Out of the ground the Lord God [‘yatsar’] formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was its name” (Genesis 2:19). In naming the animals, Adam was taking possession and exercising his dominion as god of this earth. When the Lord God had finished forming His creation—male and female of each species—He put Adam to sleep and drew from his side a rib from which He built woman as a byproduct. Although Eve shared his dominion, it was through the oneness of the marriage union, just as we Christians are made joint-heirs in Christ’s Kingdom through our invisible marriage union with and under His Headship (Romans 8:17; I Corinthians 3:21-23).

God is unchanging: as He put Adam to sleep in the garden of Eden and took from his side a rib with which to build Eve, He put Jesus to sleep on Calvary and took from His side the Holy Spirit with which He is building His Bride. Either dead or alive, no cruelty was omitted towards Christ, nor was there any evidence wanting that might confirm the truth of His death. To please the Jews who do not hesitate to defame the dead, “one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear,” but the insult produced a miracle in that “blood and water” issued from His lifeless body, fulfilling the Law under which, “almost all things are purged with blood; and without shedding of blood there is no remission” for God requires a life for a life, and our kinsman Redeemer voluntarily offered up His own spotless Life in substitution for “whosoever will” of Adam’s race (John 19:34; Hebrews 9:22; Revelation 1:5).

Caiaphas, Israel’s high priest, “counseled the Jews, It is expedient that one man should die for the people! [And] all the people, answered, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children” as it is to this day (John 18:14; Matthew 27:25). But when Jesus Messiah claimed the Title Deed to all He had redeemed, “The four living creatures and the twenty-four elders sang a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the Book, and to open the Seals, for You were slain, and Your blood has redeemed to God men out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation [of Adam’s race]” (Revelation 5:9), thus confirming Redemption is Over and Christ’s mediation ended in March, 1963, when the Mercy Seat became a Judgment Seat, vindicating God’s promise to Abraham, whose name means “father of the Gentiles” (Genesis 17:5; Revelation 4; 5).

Without moisture clay does not hold together well but is easily turned back into dust, and the whole creation is sustained only so long as it is bound by the moisture of God’s eternal Word (Colossians 1:17). Likewise the promises of His Word are of no effect if we add to or take from what God has said, for they are no longer eternal Word and THUS SAITH THE LORD, but the ephemeral something you or I as mere mortals conceived. When we meddle with God’s unchanging Word we break the glue of the Spirit that binds it together and which alone can honour His promises: we turn Life into death and make God’s Word of no effect. “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4; Revelation 22:17-19).

Jesus said, “If you abide in Me, and My Words remain in you, you may ask what you will, and it shall be done for you.” Your heart must be in the Logos or Word, and remain there in order for you to be among the chosen few for whom Jesus prayed and sent into the world to manifest His Name, “that the world may know that God sent Jesus, and that He has loved you as He has loved Him” (John 15:7; 17; 14:8-14).

When God [‘bara’] created man out of nothing but His eternal thoughts expressed, He spoke them male and female. He [‘asah’] made and [‘yatsar’] molded man from the existing material of the ground, but He made woman from the existing material of Adam’s flesh and bone—not a separate creation [‘yatsar’] molded like clay, but [‘banah’] built as a continuation of her husband. And as God is unchanging in His Word and His ways, the members of Christ’s Bride are not an independent creation distinct from their Husband but a continuation of the same creation built from Attributes of the Logos manifest in flesh as written epistles of the Word for their day. As God never changes His principles, the Bride of the last Adam will be a W_O_R_D Bride like her Husband, performing the same works as Her Husband by speaking the Word. As His intercession for the ignorance of PART-Word is fulfilled, His end-time Bride can only come into His image through a clear revelation of the fullness of the Word, and to make this possible He sent William Branham, the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7 to restore the apostolic faith, finish the mystery of God, and call us out from the world church system into the unity of the faith so we can manifest that we are the Sons of God (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:4; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 13:10).

Once creation came into conflict with God’s eternal Word, corruption and death set in and in the days of Noah the world fell apart. When Eve was deceived by Satan’s reasoning against the Word, she crossed from eternity into time, as God warned, “In the day you partake of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil [which was a metaphor for Lucifer and his wisdom] you shall die-die” (Genesis 2:17). As in Cantonese the repetition of the Hebrew ‘muwth’ emphasized the certainty of death. Since Adam was God’s spoken Word made flesh he was not deceived and could not sin, and like the last Adam, he loved His wife who was not spoken Word but a by-product of the Word and could be deceived, so she was made to be under obedience to her husband. Now Adam did not sin or reason in unbelief against God’s revealed Word, but with the revelation he was God’s Son he knew he was eternal with God and could no more be lost than God can be lost: by faith he voluntarily crossed from life unto death, knowing the Lord must at some time redeem Him, and when God redeemed him, Eve would be redeemed also, because the two were one flesh through the marriage union.

Being perfect, God’s Word never changes: given the same circumstances His first decision and first work will be the same yesterday, and today, and forever (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8). Although He was born of a woman, Jesus Christ the last Adam was also without sin, and voluntarily crossed from life into death in order to redeem His wife. When Jesus prayed for His Bride He asked that she “might be one [in the faith] as He and the Father are one” (John 17:21-26; Acts 2:1; I Corinthians 12:12-13; Ephesians 4:13). From eternity, Christ’s Bride was foreknown of God in the Logos. And as Attributes of the Logos, every elect son of Adam is accounted crucified in Christ on Calvary, raised in Him and is even now seated in heavenly places in Him (II Corinthians 5:14; Revelation 13:8). Those accounted in Christ will be written epistles of with the Word for their day, as a life lived by the Word is the Word expressed, and our lives must be at one with the present Truth.

Adam surrendered his dominion to Satan for the love of his wife; this one offence brought death and decay upon the whole creation and condemnation upon all men, whereas the one righteous act of Jesus Christ crossing from life to death brought the unmerited gift of God’s grace and justification within reach of every son of Adam when He was “raised from the dead for our justification [thereby] destroying the works of the Devil” (Romans 4:25; I John 3:8). Justification is not forgiveness but complete innocence as though you never committed those trespasses. True justification is the regeneration or new birth of your soul and union with God in Christ, not its replacement (Romans 5:17-18).

Adam and Eve could not live out the seventh day as their body and spirit lost the binding moisture of the pure Word and began falling apart. Through famine and drought for hearing the revealed Word of God the world is again falling apart (Amos 8:11; Luke 8:6) “as it did in the days of Noah,” but this time it will be destroyed by fire (Matthew 24:37; Malachi 4:1-3; II Peter 3:1-11). God said, “In the sweat of your brow you will eat bread, till you return to the ground; for out of it you were taken: for dust you are, and to dust you shall return.” Much of life became fruitless vanity: Job 10:9 implored God, “Remember that You have [Heb, ‘asah’] made me of clay; Will You now turn me back into dust”?

The Lord God made only one woman for Adam, but through her many more children were born of Adam’s race, and hordes of physical Serpent’s seed of Cain’s race. The last Adam likewise prayed for His one Bride “and for them also who shall believe on Me [and be born-again] through their Word” (John 17:20). These are “their offspring.” Isaiah prophesied, “When He makes Himself an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, and the will of the Lord shall prosper in His hand” (Isaiah 61:9; 65:23; 53:10; Acts 2:39). Like her natural type, multitudes who should have been offspring to Christ by Spiritual Eve, the Church, fell by the wayside as make-believers and unbelievers, “led astray by various strange teachings,” and having hybrid God’s Word with human reasoning, which is the seed of discrepancy, are spiritual Serpent’s seed (Revelation 22:18-19).

The Lord God Himself [Heb. ‘banah’] “built” the wife of the first Adam overnight as it were. In longsuffering patience He has been 2,000 years building the wife of the last Adam, and placed a five-fold ministry in the Church to perfect those who are saints for ministry to those without and for the edifying or building up of Christ’s Bride “until the last member comes into the unity of the faith in this holy convocation, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto the full measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12-13; Matthew 16:8; Mark 14:58). When the first Eve was “built,” the Lord presented her to the first Adam, and when the last Eve is built, the Lord will present her to Himself a glorious Bride “having no spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but holy and blameless”.

The living Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever. Psalm 102 was inspired toward the end of the captivity, but it was “written for a generation to come, a people yet to be created who will praise the Lord.” The psalmist was looking to the time when Jesus Messiah, having been crucified and raised for our justification, would “hear the groaning of the prisoners and loose those that are destined to die.” This was partially fulfilled when He “descended first into the lower parts of the earth” to indict sinners and vindicate the faith of the Old Testament saints, then ascended far above the visible heavens to cleanse the sanctuary of the accumulated sins of the Old Testament saints, and descending once again, lead captive of Life those who had been captives of death (Psalm 68:18; Matthew 27:50-53; Ephesians 4:8-9). He was also looking forward to the 144,000 elect Israelites, “a people yet to be created who will praise the Lord.” And to the new Jerusalem on a renewed heavens and renewed earth “When the nations, even the kingdoms are gathered together, to serve the Lord”.

With unwavering faith in his personal deliverance even though it must wait “for an age to come [when] the Lord would look down from the height of His heavenly sanctuary and hear the groaning of the prisoners,” the psalmist anticipated the revelation of Jehovah to be accomplished in Jesus Messiah, as Jesus of the New Testament would be Jehovah of the Old manifest in the flesh of a virgin-born Man to play the part of our kinsman Redeemer (Isaiah 7:14; Leviticus 25; Ruth; I Timothy 3:16). He is the same yesterday, and today, and forever, hence His Name is called Emmanuel, which means not a second, third or any other fraction but “[ALL of] God with us . . . For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily” (Matthew 1:23; Colossians 2:9); but His Name is Jesus, which means “the self-existing One [not two or three], the Saviour” (Isaiah 45:21-22). Our help comes exclusively from the Creator, not from His creation, for He alone hears and answers prayer.

Paul quotes Psalm 102 in Hebrews 1:10-12, the heavens and earth are said to have been created “of Old.” Indeed they were created “in the beginning,” are of lasting duration (49:26; Psalm 148:6; Isaiah 48:13) and may be billions of years old, yet in contrast with the Creator, they are merely transitory while He remains unchangeably the same through all the vicissitudes of time (Psalm 119:90). When He repeats the Greek word [Gk. ‘parerchomai’] Jesus is emphatic: “Heaven and earth will pass away,” or change from their present condition to renewal, or regeneration, not replaced (Isaiah 65:17; 66:22; II Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:1).

In Colossians 1:15-16 we read, “Jesus Messiah is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation. For through Him all things were created in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities—all things were created through Christ the Logos, and for Him.” As Brother Branham explained, the living Christ, the same, yesterday, and today, and forever, redeems Earth the same as He redeemed you. Your first step in faith is when you receive a clear revelation of the true oneness of the Godhead who is Jesus—and what He has done for you; repent and receive baptism by immersion in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of past sins. They are not forgiven but remitted, and the record cast into the sea of God’s forgetfulness. We call this justification by grace through faith. You have a clean slate, but the nature of the god of this world who influenced you to sin remains on your soul, spirit and body. Your second step in faith is a process called sanctification which sets your mind in order for holiness by ongoing revelation exposing your mistakes so that quickly you repent and line up with God’s unchanging Word. However the nature of Satan that led you to sin is still on your soul. Your third step in faith is new birth by a clear understanding of the present Truth. This is the baptism with the Holy Spirit and Fire that cleanses your soul of the nature of the world and quickens it to new Life in Christ the Word. We must recognize our day and its Message in order that we can walk in the Light God is shining now, and receive the fullness of the revealed Word for our day when it is presented (I John 1:7).

God can only redeem, or buy back a possession that was lost, but was His from Eternity, that is, the Attributes of the Logos or Word. And you will only possess eternal Life if you are predestinated by God’s foreknowledge and an eternal Attribute of the Logos (Romans 8:28-31; I Peter 1:2). In the days of Noah, Earth was baptized by the Great Flood and justified, but the waters only washed away civilization and the evidence of past sin as confirmed by the presence in the ark of Ham, his wife and Mrs. Noah, who repopulated Earth with physical and spiritual Serpent’s seed. It was sanctified by the Blood of Christ after the Roman soldier pierced His side, and will receive its baptism with the Holy Ghost and Fire following the White Throne Judgment. Flames will leap thousands of miles into space and new lava will cover Earth’s surface while the Shekinah will annihilate all demons, leaving no evidence of human history or remembrance of sin.

Hebrews 1:10-12 says, “Heavens and earth are the works of Your hands. They will perish, but You remain. They will all wear out like a garment, and like a mantle You will fold them up and they will be changed; but You are the same and your years will never end.” This metaphor of impermanence is also found in Psalm 104:2 and Isaiah 40:22.

The metaphor of a scroll once read, rolled up and set aside, is applied to describe the dawning of the day of the Lord when Satan and his demons will be cast down to earth at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal upon the close of the Gentile dispensation (Isaiah 34:4; Revelation 6:14; 12:7-17); while Isaiah 51:6 says, “Lift up your eyes to the heavens, then look on the earth beneath: for the skies shall vanish away like smoke, the earth shall wear out like a garment, and they that dwell thereon shall die in swarms: but My salvation shall abide for ever, and My righteousness shall never be annulled.” In view of the contrast to which the soul of God’s elect and this world are to be subjected, only God the Word is immutable and ever manifests Himself as the same.

Not surprisingly the blasphemous motto of the fraudulent Judaeo-Roman Catholic church is, ‘Semper Eadem,’ which means “always the same.” She calls herself the Bride of Christ but He calls her “the great whore . . . the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth . . . who corrupted the earth with her [spiritual] fornication [which is idolatry] . . . and will be utterly burned with [nuclear] fire” (Revelation 17:1-5, 18:8-20; 19:2). In Hebrew that word is ‘cherem,’ which means “dedicated to destruction for the glory of God as in Daniel 9:27.

Psalm 102:15-16 identifies Jesus of the New Testament with Jehovah of the Old Testament: “The Gentiles shall revere the Name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth Your glory. When the Lord has rebuilt Zion, He will appear in His glory.” Jesus Christ is the glory of God. “Isaiah saw the glory of God and spoke of Him” (John 12:41; Isaiah 6:1-9). In Zechariah 12:10 Jehovah says, “I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.” Immediately after the soldier had pierced Christ’s dead body John applied this verse to Jesus (John 19:37).

When God spoke the Word that created all men and women in Adam’s race, for potentially we were all in Adam as every banana that ever will be was potentially in the first banana tree, and as every elect was in Jesus Christ when He walked the shores of Galilee since we are Attributes of the Logos, He [Heb. ‘bara’] created us in His image. That is, He spoke the Word that would manifest our soul when we were born. You are your soul, an unseen spirit being as God is an unseen Spirit being (Genesis 1:26-28). In our designated decreed season and time we were manifest on earth to be tested and overcome Satan, sin and the world by the Word of God and prayer, and grow into the [Heb. ‘dmuwth’] likeness of God in Christ by putting on His character with the Token on display.

If the living Christ is in us we will “speak the truth and lie not.” The Holy Spirit will not dwell where the Word of God is unwelcome. We need to humble ourselves before the Lord, repent, confess our misdeeds, remembering that in this day the Revival is only in the heart of His Bride. Return to Christ while you are still able. If we are honest we will confess before God and before men. Brother Branham came under condemnation one time when someone called and he said to his wife, “Tell them I’m not home; I’m outside right now, so I’m not here just at this time.” Later He was called to pray for someone but first he had to make that right.

Ask the Lord to sweeten your life. Pour in oil and the balm of Gilead, and anoint your soul with His goodness and mercy, so that you can hear Him speak to you again, and so people will know the anointing lives in you as it dwelt in Jesus, then you may rest assured you will manifest the ‘third pull’ and change in the atoms.

Jesus is the living Christ. Galatians 2:20, “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the Life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me”. nl568.htm

The Mystery of the Church as the Bride of Christ

February 20, 2009

Bible Believers’ Newsletter #567
“We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . .”
ISSN 1442-8660

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We so happy you could join us in fellowship around God’s unchanging Word.

Big Brother has had 31,000 London bobbies microchipped for total surveillance. Apparently those who do not take the chip cannot work or even visit the bathroom unsupervised. Photograph them and you may be imprisoned. Stateside Homeland Security may be eyeing sinners: the Magnavox TV set top digital converter is said to contain a camera and microphone, so smile, Big Brother is watching. Russia has sunk a Chinese freighter bound for Seattle allegedly bearing a stolen nuclear warhead. And the cousin of alleged 9/11 hijacker Ziad al-Jarrah has been exposed as a long standing Israeli spy in yet another startling intelligence connection between the Zionist state and the attacks on New York and Washington. The world is falling apart.

The First World was destroyed by the Moneypower which instead of serving, took over the real economy, transforming its worth from real goods and services to paper priced far above the value of assets and production. Globalization then picked the eyes out of the real economy, transferring the real wealth of capital goods and real jobs to the Third World, and NWO politicians arranged a fire sale of public utilities and hard assets offshore in exchange for fiat money created out of thin air. Since the productive economies of Western nations have largely relocated in Asia, the once-developed world is “a nation of shopkeepers” with “service industries” doing one another’s washing. The share market has begun its fall, and without a manufacturing or extractive economy those nations cannot trade out of the grip of the international usurers and without consumers in the West, the Asian Tigers will strike lean times. Refinancing the banksters with counterfeit fiat money not worth the paper on which it is printed is folly. Failing banks should be allowed to fail or nationalized along with their assets and the wealth of corrupt executives and the Babylonian fractional reserve system outlawed.

Stimulating our economies by printing money will feed the cause and exacerbate the crisis. The objective should be to save, not consume on credit. Our governments are servants of Lucifer’s one world government determined by all means to preserve the globalist’s rapine of free enterprise and prevent protectionist measures to strengthen national independence. The many stimulus packages can only serve the international banksters to further debase the currency of nations complicit in feeding rather than excising the contagion. The objective of the planned economic collapse is to bring the world to beg for the electronic currency for which the world was wired via the false flag of Y2K; the minions of the planners are kingpins directing the Obama Administration as they collectivize and centralize the (so-called) “Free World” under the claws of Judaeo-Communism Jesus indicated by the name “Laodicea”.

Then there is the climate change hoax. Vintage weatherman John Coleman says, “Al Gore and others selling carbon credits should be sued for fraud.” Oh, so many BIG lies to tell, and so little time in which to tell them. But you, Christian, “Speak the truth in Christ, and lie not” (I Timothy 2:7).

This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.

A Real Holocaust–One of Several: Dresden, February 13, 1945
There is physical and scientific proof and evidence for this holocaust. This one is not make believe and was witnessed by my own father from the outskirts of Dresden and close-up right after. Why do we not have a Dresden Holocaust Museum and Dresden Memorial Center in every major city in North America and the world—paid for by taxpayers? Dresden was not a strategic target. Why were the Jewish instigators Stalin, Churchill, Roosevelt and Morganthau not executed along with Jewish Professor Lindemann (later Lord Cherwell), Jewish General Eisenhower, among others? Why are there no apologies, endless compensation and “respect for the dead”? And why can one publicly deny this holocaust which did happen—and not end up in jail!

Isn’t civilization wonderful? Over a million Iraqis dead, so sorry! Afghans don’t count much! The genocide of 1,400 innocent Gazans, ho hum, and no one has been prosecuted for these real war crimes. Full story: newsfromthewest.blogspot.com wintersonnenwende.com

Comment: Colonies of the City of London always fight on the wrong side in planned wars of aggression to ‘front’ for those “God set at enmity” with the children of the first and second Adam (Genesis 3:15). These once Christian nations, having rejected the Absolute of God’s unchanging Word, parrot lying propaganda as “history” to cover atrocities devised by the ‘hidden had’, and incarcerate indict refuseniks. Finally, the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church has adopted the new holocaust religion essential to securing the alliance of Daniel 9:27, and will in the next few years force her US and (once) Protestant image to fulfil Revelation 13:15-18, bringing Revelation 18:24 and Matthew 23:35 into alignment.

Who was Benazir Bhutto?
Islamabad, February 12, 2009 – Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rehman Malik showed evidence to the media during his news conference and said, “Some part of the [Mumbai Bombing] conspiracy has taken place in Pakistan” (mercurynews.com).

It seems people loyal to the CIA/MOSSAD are running Pakistan now—traitors selling out their country for promises of wealth. . . like Interior Minister Malik who stated a lie when saying that part of the Mumbai planning was done in Pakistan whereas all the facts indicate Mumbai was a joint MOSSAD/RSS Hindutva operation as explained in the previous post by Farzana Khan. Rehman Malik is not what he seems, opium trade, Musharraf, Two other Qadianis in charge of Pakistan: Rehman Malik and Tariq Aziz. Rehman Malik had a criminal record in Pakistan while for eight years in London he made money with the help of likes of [the Chabad-Lubavitch] Nariman House [at the heart of the false flag Mumbai bombing]. (Any doubters check his companies’ work in London and Europe). He was to be Pakistan’s Chalabi!!

It cannot be said with certainty but there are some reasons to assume that Benazir Bhutto, the former prime minister of Pakistan, wittingly or unwittingly, played into the hands of RAW-Mossad masterminds. She appointed Rehman Malik as chief of the Federal Investigation Agency which then launched a secret war against the Islamists; amounting to a direct attack on the ISI.

War against religious extremists could have been a laudable goal but it seemed to target only those elements which could have brought a semblance of moderation to the religious swatch cutting across Pakistan society. Thus, leaving the field wide open for extremists. It seems that the Pakistani military was equally dismayed by reports of FIA contacts with the Israeli secret service, the MOSSAD, to investigate Islamist terrorists (rense.com).

“The world Zionist movement should not be neglectful of the dangers of Pakistan to it. And Pakistan now should be its first target, for this ideological State is a threat to our existence. And Pakistan, the whole of it, hates the Jews and loves the Arabs. This lover of the Arabs is more dangerous to us than the Arabs themselves. For that matter, it is most essential for the world Zionism that it should now take immediate steps against Pakistan. Whereas the inhabitants of the Indian peninsula are Hindus whose hearts have been full of hatred towards Muslims, therefore, India is the most important base for us to work therefrom against Pakistan.”

“It is essential that we exploit this base and strike and crush Pakistanis, enemies of Jews and Zionism, by all disguised and secret plans” (David Ben Gurion, Jewish Chronicle, 9 August 1967). Full story: israelforum.com

‘Sanctions’ sought in Eligibility Case
February 13, 2009 – A high-powered team of Los Angeles attorneys representing President Obama in his effort to keep his birth certificate, college records and passport documents concealed from the public has suggested there should be “monetary sanctions” against a lawyer whose clients have brought a complaint alleging Obama doesn’t qualify for the Oval Office under the Constitution’s demand for a “natural born” citizen in that post. . .

Comment: A further instance wherein Truth is trounced by money, and law is without justice.

By executive order, on January 27, Obama ordered $20.3 million in urgent migration assistance to provide a free ticket with housing and food allowances to Palestinian refugees and conflict victims in Gaza who have displayed overwhelming support of Hamas in the parliamentary election of January 2006, to resettle in the United States. By executive order George II resettled 12,000 Iraqi refugees in 2008, to be increased to 19,000 in 2009. The “hot stage” of World War III, planned in 1871 between the political Zionists and political Islam, is being brought home to the colonials by the ‘hidden hand’ of the City of London, the Black Nobility and the Vatican.

Orthodox Anglicans don’t expect Unity for Long
February 10. 2009 – In an open letter addressed to Archbishop of Canterbury Dr. Rowan Williams, who is considered the spiritual leader of the Anglican Communion, Nigerian Archbishop Peter J. Akinola expressed his discontentment with the churches in North America and their continued pro-gay actions.

“It now seems increasingly clear that without a radical change of behavior on the part of The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Canada the only possible outcome of such a process is acknowledgment of a bitter truth that the differences in the words of Archbishop Idris Jones are ‘irreconcilable’,” Akinola wrote . . .

For Catholics, a Door to Absolution is Reopened
February 9, 2009 — According to church teaching, even after sinners are absolved in the confessional and say their Our Fathers or Hail Marys as penance, they still face punishment after death, in Purgatory, before they can enter heaven. In exchange for certain prayers, devotions or pilgrimages in special years, a Catholic can receive an indulgence, which reduces or erases that punishment instantly, with no formal ceremony or sacrament.

There are partial indulgences, which reduce purgatorial time by a certain number of days or years and plenary indulgences, which eliminate all of it, until another sin is committed. You can get one for yourself, or for someone who is dead. . . There is a limit of one plenary indulgence per sinner per day. . . Full story: nytimes.com

Controversial Bestseller shakes the Foundation of the Israeli State
January 28, 2009 — What if the Palestinian Arabs who have lived for decades under the heel of the modern Israeli state are in fact descended from the very same “children of Israel” described in the Old Testament? And what if most modern Israelis aren’t descended from the ancient Israelites at all, but are actually a mix of Europeans, North Africans and others who didn’t “return” to the scrap of land we now call Israel and establish a new state following the attempt to exterminate them during World War II, but came in and forcefully displaced people whose ancestors had lived there for millennia? . .

That’s the explosive thesis of “When and How Was the Jewish People Invented?”, a book by Tel Aviv University scholar Shlomo Zand (or Sand) that sent shockwaves across Israeli society when it was published last year. After 19 weeks on the Israeli best-seller list, the book is being translated into a dozen languages . . . Full story: alternet.org

Comment: As the Bible, Jewish encyclopedias and historians record for those not too lazy to read. this means they are not God’s chosen people, which is a relief (because they are giving Him a real bad name). Were these people Judahites, Israelites or even Semites they would remember the great goodness of the Persian nation in securing Judah’s freedom from Babylonian captivity, restoring the temple treasures and assisting the rebuilding of Jerusalem and its temple. Instead they are intent on killing the people of the twelve tribes who have lived for centuries in Lebanon, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Egypt and Libya and will not return to modern day Israel “for fear of the [self-styled] Jews” (Genesis 27:39-41).

The Mystery of the Church as the Bride of Christ

Romans 1:3-4, “Jesus Christ our Lord was made of the seed of David according to the flesh and openly declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by His resurrection from the dead.” If you too are sanctified by the Spirit of holiness you have the assurance that in this last day, “Everyone will die but me”.

Ephesians 5:22-33, “Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as to the Lord, because the husband is head of his wife, as Christ also is head of the Church, and is Himself the Saviour of the Body. Nevertheless as the Church is subject to Christ, so let the wives also be to their husbands in every thing.

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the Church, and gave Himself up for her: that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with His Word, so that He might present it to Himself gloriously, having no spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing, but holy and blameless.

Thus ought husbands also to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself: for no one ever hated his own flesh; but nourishes and carefully protects it, as Christ does the Church, because we are members of His Body, being of His flesh, and of His bones. For this reason a man shall leave father and mother and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall be one flesh.

This is a profound mystery, but I am speaking about Christ and the Church. Nevertheless, let each one love his own wife as Himself; and let the wife see that she reverence her husband”.

Christian marriage between a man and his wife is a type of the invisible union between Christ and His Bride. The verses we are studying commence with the command to wives to submit themselves to their husband as Christians submit themselves to one another in reverence to Christ (verse 21), because the husband is head of the one body united with his wife in holy matrimony, as Christ is Head of the Body of the Church of all Ages.

Clearly, marriage as ordained by God is not a 50:50 arrangement but 100:0, for He calls and chooses his wife as the Lord calls and chooses His Bride, and the Lord is behind him as the substance which cast the shadow his life fulfils, hence her obedience is not to him as a man but as her own husband in whose person the Lord is honoured and whom the Husband must himself obey (I Corinthians 11:3-16; I Peter 3:6). He is sovereign in his calling and choosing; and the natural woman, typing your soul, is on free moral agency to accept or decline his proposal; once she has accepted, the choice is mutual and each is obligated to his word: should she break the marriage contract she must remain single so long as he lives, or she shall be an adulteress (Romans 7:3). In the Spiritual marriage, the soul united with Christ cannot divorce her Lord for God and the soul that is joined together with God is one Spirit (Matthew 19:6; I Corinthians 6:17; Ephesians 4:30).

Women are called to be “loving wives and mothers, sensible, chaste, domesticated keepers at home, good-natured and obedient to their own husbands, so that the Word of God is not discredited” (Titus 2:4-5). The husband being older and more mature than his wife not only chose her but possesses greater power and culture for civil life, and must represent his wife and the household as it was ordered by God until Satan unleashed feminism and “equal opportunity” whereby men now earn half salaries and their wives also work full time in order to maintain the home (I Corinthians 7:11). This subtle plan of Satan is an example of “the spirit of strong delusion” designed to destroy the authority of man over woman who was not in the original creation and is a byproduct taken from man to be his helpmate. Not being God’s spoken Word she was deceived on the revealed Word, causing the Fall, and her father or husband is to rule over her.

The emancipation of the headstrong woman, that repulsive miscreant of iron will, destroys what is Christian and becomes an offensive caricature of womanhood. Should the husband be lacking in some of the attributes necessary to fulfill his ideal calling, the wife should not despise his social dignity but look above and beyond him to the Christ he represents. Let love be self-sacrificial with the consequence and purpose of sanctification. As Christians, Christ has sent us into the world with the same purpose for which the Father sent Him, “And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also might be sanctified through the Truth . . . that we might reconcile the world to God” (John 17:17-23; II Corinthians 5:19).

The natural marriage is parallel to the Spiritual marriage. As the wife is commanded in love to conduct herself towards her husband, so the Church should conduct herself toward Christ. As the husband should conduct himself towards his wife, so Christ does toward the Church. Natural and spiritual marriage is a fellowship between a head and a body in mutually dependent life and love. Thus the earthly shadow should reflect the nature and character of its pattern which is the heavenly substance. Hence Paul states, “Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as to the Lord, because the husband is head of his wife” In other words, yield to your husband that obedience which you yield to Christ, who, having chosen and won you, is your Head, and as such the husband’s responsibility is to organize and manage and provide, make decisions and control “as Christ also is Head of the Church” and Husband of your soul.

“Christ Himself and no other is the Saviour of the Body,” which establishes His Headship over husband and wife who are joint heirs in Him and co-equal in eternal Life and “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one [in eternal Life] in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:27-29). The natural husband cannot endue his wife with eternal Life but aside from this distinction, wives should be subject to their own husband as the Church or soul is subject to Christ the Word “in every thing” that is not contrary to God’s unchanging Word (Colossians 3:17-22). A woman who does not obey her husband is out of the will of God of whom her husband is a type. He cannot sanctify the marriage with a rebellious wife, and the Lord cannot sanctify an unruly church but will spew it from His mouth. The husband should live a holy life so that his wife reverences him (Genesis 3:16; I Corinthians 14:34-35; I Timothy 2:11-12; I Peter 3:1).

A husband or a wife married to an unbeliever with whom they are otherwise pleased should remain together. However, if the unbelieving spouse insists upon ungodliness in his or her partner, such as immodest dress, shorts or slacks, cut hair and a painted face, fraternizing with ungodly people and frequenting ungodly places, or prevents them reading their Bible or attending Church, the woman is not subject, and the husband may put away such a wife. For God is ruler over the husband and the wife, and Jesus said: “He who will not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple . . . There is no one who has left house, or parents, or brothers, or wife, or children, for the sake of the kingdom God, who will not receive manifold more in this age, and in the coming age, eternal Life” (Luke 14:33; 18:29-30). But if the wife departs she must remain unmarried and celebrate so long as her husband lives. Who knows but that the believing spouse might sanctify and save their partner? Everyone should remain in the station in which he was called. But if the unbeliever chooses to separate, let them depart; the Brother or Sister in such circumstances is not bond, for God has called you to enjoy peace (I Corinthians 7:11-24).

Paul types the husband with Christ, who sanctified Himself throughout life, even unto death, by the Token on display in order that His Bride might be sanctified or made holy and glorify Him by the Token on display in her life (as cited above in John 17:17-23). Since Jesus was the Logos manifest in flesh, as attributes of the Logos His Bride was accounted in Him and constantly sanctified. She was in Him when He was falsely accused, reviled, spat upon, crucified, dead and buried. If you are a member of His Body you paid for your sins when you were crucified in Jesus on Calvary “and will not come into condemnation; but have passed from death unto Life” (II Corinthians 5:14; John 5:24). When He was restored to life and caught up into heavenly places to sit at God’s right hand, you were in Him then and are right now seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 1:20-23; 2:6). The last Adam, the King of glory, is reuniting with His own glorious being: His wife is made up of the Holy Spirit taken from His side when He died on Calvary as Eve was taken from the side of her Adam in the form of flesh and blood when God put him to sleep.

In His outward stature Jesus possessed no comeliness that would attract our attention, and no beauty that we should be drawn towards Him, for His beauty was character within (Isaiah 53:2). His wife is His glory, so the members of His Bride will reflect His character. And as the husband is to reflect the Spirit of Christ he will display the Token of the Life of Christ by His devotion for and deference to the weaker vessel who is his glory (I Corinthians 11:7). Thus more is required of the husband than of the wife. While the devotion of the wife is entire, exclusive, indissoluble and ministering as the Church loves and belongs exclusively to Christ, and the husband should love His wife as Christ loved the Church in entire, exclusive, indissoluble and protecting love, it is more difficult for him to love her without egotism, and to be master of the house in true affection without any severity, than for her to submit to him in tender respect for his dignity as husband and his nature in manhood.

The objective of marriage in both the natural and Spiritual realm is the sanctification of character and mutual unity in the Spirit of holiness.

As a holy God demands a holy life: the objective of the self-sacrificing love of Christ is that He might sanctify a Bride in the likeness of His character, then renew heavens and earth. So from the holy convocation of Pentecost through Seven Church Ages to the holy convocation of this present day He has been building a holy Church, cleansing the members of His Body in each of those nine dispensations, not by the water of Scriptural baptism, but by the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ and His substitutionary sacrifice that led them to repentance and baptism (Titus 3:5; I Peter 1:18-25; 3:21) and to the baptism with the Holy Spirit or new birth by the revelation of the present Truth cleansing the heart and establishing the saint in that part of the Body Christ is building by the Word of the hour with the token of a particular virtue of the Life of Christ as explained in II Peter 1:1-12 and illustrated in this diagram (I John 1:7; I Corinthians 12:12-27). The “seven thunders” of Revelation 10 are the revelation of the Messages of the angels to the Seven Church Ages revealed in their fullness through the ministry of Brother Branham, the angel to the seventh Church Age, to restore the apostolic faith (Malachi 4:5; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7). It is this fullness revealed to God’s holy prophets and apostles placed in the context of Church history with an exposition of the mysteries hidden under the symbology of the Book of Revelation that quickens the Bride of Christ in this last day and brings her to maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.

Water baptism does not cleanse the heart of sin but is merely an outward and public testimony of the soul-cleansing inner work of revelation. In the Old Testament the sacrifice had first to be washed before it was offered, hence when John the Baptist protested, “I need to be baptized by You; why are You coming to me? Jesus replied, Permit it to be so now: for it is fitting to fulfil all righteousness [under the Law at this time]” (Matthew 3:14-15). Justification by grace through faith and Scriptural water baptism is the firstwork of Christians as we “present our bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is our reasonable service” (Romans 12:1; Philippians 4:17-18).

Before Israel could come into fellowship with God the nation had to be justified by faith and come under the blood of a red heifer that was never yoked to any man-made religion, a type of Christ sacrificed without the camp, its blood sprinkled toward the front of the tabernacle seven times and burnt in his sight—”her skin, and her flesh, and her blood, with her dung”—as Jesus Messiah was crucified without the camp by a priest—not the high priest who was forbidden to associate with death (Matthew 27:25; John 11:50). Those seven stripes of blood show that their kinsman Redeemer died for their sin seven Church Ages before they would receive Him (Zechariah 12:1 – 13:9).

Numbers 19:9, 11-13, “And a man who is clean shall gather up the ashes of the heifer [as a memorial of the shed blood], and deposit them in a clean place without the camp, and they shall be kept for the congregation of the Israelites for a water of separation for the removal of sin. . . He who touches the dead body of any one shall be unclean seven days. (Because death is the wages of sin, thus Israel, who murdered their Messiah, has been unclean throughout seven Church Ages of the past 2,000 years). He shall cleanse himself with water run through the ashes of the red heifer on the third day, (and we are well into that third day of a thousand years), then he shall be clean: but if he fails to purify himself then on the seventh day he shall not be clean. Every one who touches the corpse of a man who has died, and fails to purify himself has defiled the dwelling of the Lord; that soul shall be cut off from Israel: because the water of separation was not sprinkled upon him. He is unclean; his uncleanness is still upon him”.

Israel and the individual Israelite who does not cleanse himself by the washing of water by the Word revealed through the Message of the two Hebrew witnesses of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11, will be blotted from the Book of Life.

Our sins were purged or burnt in Christ on Calvary and can never more be imputed unto us (II Corinthians 5:14). Ashes are the token of a sacrifice (of the Word) that is received by God, and the washing of live or running water (signifying the Holy Spirit) through the ashes types separation from sin by a clear revelation of the Word, which exposes sin (or unbelief) and replaces it with righteousness. Only a holy or sanctified man could handle the ashes or revealed Word of God. The waters of separation cleansed the unclean but defiled the one who administered it (ibid verse 7, 21) as Christ took upon Himself the filthy robes of sinful Israel and the world when He removed them from “whomsoever will” of Adam’s race and robed His elect with robes of His righteousness: not by works but by grace through faith (Zechariah 3:3-4).

In building, Christ has been constantly cleansing His glorious Church, washing unbelief and misunderstanding from souls by the revelation of the Word over 2,000 years. We can only walk in the Light as it is revealed to us; thus it is the Light of a clear understanding of the mind of Christ that washes sin from our soul by the Spirit of holiness (II Corinthians 11:2).

Throughout the Book of Revelation John types or represents Christ’s end-time Bride because this Book was sealed until the time of the end when Christ revealed it to us through the Message of William Branham, the angel to the Seventh Church Age (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4-7). In Revelation 21:2, we see “the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared [or made ready] (Revelation 19:7-8) as a Bride adorned [with honour] for her Husband,” and of course Christ’s Bride is the holy city, worthy of her calling, fitted for Him to present to Himself gloriously and not to please the world or anybody else, but for His Own good pleasure “having no spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but holy and blameless.” Stains and “spots” signify soiling from the world without, such as the loathsome remains of our former life without Christ. “Wrinkles” are the external evidence of internal emotions that disfigure the face over time. Such blemishes as would mar the physical beauty of an idealized Bride will be absent in the Spiritual antitype of Christ’s Bride perfected by the Spirit of holiness.

Adam and Eve were one flesh and bone and Christ and His “glorious Church” are one Spirit as Jesus prayed in Gethsemane. “Thus ought husbands also to love their wives as their own bodies,” for their own wife is their body, they being the head as Christ is Head of His Church. Therefore, he who loves his wife loves himself, for if he hated her he would hate his own flesh, but he strengthens and renews its life, and carefully protects and preserves her life as Christ nourishes and protects the Church “because we are members of His Body, being of His flesh, and of His bones” whence we were taken at His death in the form of the Holy Spirit (I Corinthians 6:15; 12:12, 27). When we observe the Lord’s Supper we signify we are born of and therefore one with His Word and His Spirit, and if there is any disharmony or if any one has brought reproach upon the Body we all tarry until restitution is made and harmony restored (I Corinthians 11:27-34).

“For this reason a man shall leave father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall be one flesh” as Christ left the Father’s bosom to woo to Himself the Church out of a lost world. And as a natural husband and wife become one flesh in procreation, so Christ, as our Head passes His Life through the Body of His Church to quicken elect souls “dead in sin and trespasses” into epistles of the present Truth—offspring read and known of all men. For He is her Head, as the husband is of the wife (Romans 6:5; I Corinthians 11:3; 15:45) and will never allow any power to sever Himself and His Bride, indissolubly joined (Matthew 19:6; John 10:28-29; Ephesians 4:30).

“This is a profound mystery, but I am speaking about Christ and the Church. Nevertheless, let each one love his own wife as Christ loves His own wife, and love his wife as being himself; and let the wife see that she reverence her husband [which is her duty]”. nl567.htm

Kissinger sent to Russia to cut New World Order Deal
February 7, 2009 – Former Reichsminister of State and Rockefeller minion Henry Kissinger was dispatched by the Obama administration to talk with Russian president Medvedev about reducing stockpiles of nuclear warheads. . . Kissinger’s “consummate diplomatic skills” are well-known—over the years he has micromanaged the bombing of small and defenseless countries and is responsible for the murder of millions of people, most notably a few million Vietnamese, Cambodians, and Indonesians. It is absurd to think Obama chose Kissinger or anybody else for that matter. Obama, like all previous presidents in the modern era, is little more than a wind-up doll with notable oratory skills and a knack for reading teleprompters. . . . Of more immediate importance than any number of nuclear warheads is Russia’s strategic relationship with China and Iran and its relations with Cuba, Venezuela and Brazil. . .

It is no secret, as well, the globalists are irked by Russia’s nationalization of the Yukos oil-producing division. . . Now that the banksters and neolibs have managed to knock Russia and other oil-producing nations down a few notches—due largely to artificially induced falling oil prices—it is time for them to strike a new deal with Russia as the New World Order scheme gains momentum. Thus it is fair to say Kissinger’s meeting with Medvedev and Putin had less to do with nuclear stockpiles than it had to do with offering a deal the Russians may not be able to refuse. In short, Kissinger’s trip was likely what it appears to be—a meeting between mob bosses as they set about to carve up their respective spheres of influence.

The War on Terror is a Hoax
February 4, 2009 – According to US government propaganda, terrorist cells are spread throughout America, making it necessary for the government to spy on all Americans and violate most other constitutional protections. Among President Bush’s last words as he left office was the warning that America would soon be struck again by Muslim terrorists.

If America were infected with terrorists, we would not need the government to tell us. We would know it . . . The most obvious indication that there are no terrorist cells is that not a single neocon has been assassinated. . . The “war on terror” is a hoax that fronts for American control of oil pipelines, the profits of the military-security complex, the assault on civil liberty by fomenters of a police state, and Israel’s territorial expansion. . . In an effort to bring Hamas under Israeli hegemony, Israel employs terror bombing and assassinations against Palestinians. Hamas replies to the Israeli terror with homemade and ineffectual rockets.

The fact that Israel and the United States carry on endless propaganda to prevent this fundamental truth from being realized indicates that it is Israel and the US that are in the wrong and the Palestinians, Lebanese, Iraqis, and Afghans who are being wronged. . . If Hamas were armed by Iran, Israel’s assault on Gaza would have cost Israel its helicopter gunships, its tanks, and hundreds of lives of its soldiers.

The great mystery is: why after 60 years of oppression are the Palestinians still an unarmed people? Clearly, the Muslim countries are complicit with Israel and the US in keeping the Palestinians unarmed. . . These assertions are propagandistic justifications for killing Arab civilians and destroying civilian infrastructure in order to secure US and Israeli hegemony in the Middle East.

Weather Control
“Some are engaging in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes and volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves” (United States Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, April, 1997).

The greatest goal of the Illuminati is to gain total control over the entire world population! That is why they have invested billions towards this goal. They have several secret projects, among which are mind, physical and economic control of the world. One of these projects takes place at a military base in the wilderness of Alaska, northeast of Anchorage, near Gakona. This project bears the official name High-frequency Active Aurora Research Program (HAARP).

According to the official HAARP website, this project is about scientific research focused on studying the qualities and behaviour of the ionosphere. With this research, special emphasis was placed on the application of communication and observation systems for civil and defensive purposes.5 The description of the patent right, however, stated an entirely different research aim: “Method and equipment to change the atmosphere, ionosphere and the sphere of power regionally.”

Project HAARP takes part in committing some of the biggest crimes against humanity, ever. There is no justification for it, as there is also no justification for developing atomic and chemical biological weapons. The technical installation in Alaska basically consists of several functions. The most interesting one is the Ionospheric Research Instrument (an installation used to change the ionosphere). The Ionospheric Research Instrument, in jargon called ‘Heater’, is the most powerful high frequency transmitter ever built. The name ‘Heater’ refers to the most important quality of the installation; it radiates the ionosphere with enormous electrical charges that heat its top layer. To heat this layer, ten to one hundred billion watts are pumped into the atmosphere.6 Because of these electrical charges, artificial Northern Lights (or Auroras) can appear under certain conditions. The most powerful heating takes place in the F-layer of the ionosphere at a height of two hundred kilometres. The partial and specific absorption of the electrical charge allows part of this charge to reflect back to earth in the form of Extreme Low Frequencies (ELF). These electromagnetic waves penetrate everything—living and dead. By transmitting these waves and other physiological signals, the HAARP installation is able to significantly manipulate the consciousness of a large part of the world’s population. Some HAARP experimental successes include the ability to:

• Alter the human psyche
• Negatively influence the health of individuals
• Disrupt human and nervous systems
• Artificially change the earth’s atmosphere

There is also the ability to penetrate the air, via chemtrailing, with the help of ionospheric lenses and mirrors, together with things like toxic barium components that disrupt or shut down communication, electricity and electronic devices selected areas.

The experiments of HAARP projects also influence the migration of animals. Many dolphins, whales, sea lions and other mammals have died in the last few years. Of course the true cause of these massive deaths is not a consequence of disorientation or pollution of the seas.7 These sea-mammals have a perfect system that was disrupted by HAARP!

It is known that the HAARP project also functions as a guard, a sort of wide radar. Together with this project, they also developed new mass destruction weapons. These weapons have the same power as an atomic bomb but do not cause radioactivity.

The HAARP installation is the most powerful weapon that the Illuminati have. HAARP was not only developed to aid in the manipulation of human consciousness, for the regulated induction of pathogens, for the alterations of geophysics and ecologic systems, but also for global control of the climate. When thinking about the warming of our planet, one should especially consider the secret experiments of our invisible elite. Of course nobody will ever think of blaming HAARP for the current changes in the climate, however, the truth is that with HAARP, the top layer of the atmosphere can be artificially influenced. HAARP can:

• Change space energetically
• Relocate or block jet streams, thus changing the weather of entire areas.
• Artificially charge fault lines, causing earthquakes.

Whenever a natural disaster occurs anywhere in the world, we must ask ourselves this particular question: “Was the disaster naturally, unnaturally or artificially induced?”

HAARP changes the northern jet stream to the southern direction. This jet stream is a constant whirlwind in the top layers of the atmosphere that should circle around the North Pole. The stream has a high electrical charge and is thus the largest moving antenna in the world that defines the electromagnetic network around the earth. In the last few years it was noted that, repeatedly, the jet stream actually moved from its normal position in the north to the south. The results of these shifts are the known natural disasters. Ever since HAARP started in 1994, there has been an unprecedented chain of natural disasters worldwide. Severe earthquakes, frequently occurring hurricanes, sudden extreme changes in weather conditions, all occurred constantly and within short time spans. When we think of climate disasters such as the Tsunami, Katrina, Rita and Wilma there is no such thing as coincidence. However meteorologists are not investigating the matter.

It has been proven that HAARP can cause local disturbances by manipulating the atmosphere, causing disturbances that could never have been caused by natural weather influences. A characteristic side effect of these same manipulations is that they can cause physical and psychosomatic symptoms in humans. Strong feelings of uneasiness and anxiety, gastrointestinal problems, headaches, migraines, irradiated eyes and feelings of depression are typical symptoms of such manipulations.

More often, we hear that it’s a scientific fact that our planet is warming up. Al Gore travels the world and fools us into believing that soon our planet will perish. Bribes by the elite think tank American Enterprise Institute (AEI) make sure that economists and scientists keep their mouths shut.8 There are hardly any scientists among the members of the United Nations climate panel. The few that are on board are generously rewarded for saying the things the elite want us to hear, causing the truth never to be revealed.

The Space and Science Research Center (SSRC) in Orlando, Florida is the leading independent research center in the United States, and possibly worldwide, that is focused on the next climate change. Some of the world’s brightest scientists, also experts in solar physics and the next climate change, are working for the SSRC. A Press Release by SSRC confirmed recent announcements by NASA that there are historic and important changes taking place on the sun’s surface, that will bring about the next climate change to one of a long lasting cold era. A new climate change is coming that will bring about an extended period of deep cold to the planet! We have only a few years to prepare before 20-30 years of lasting and possibly dangerous cold temperatures arrive. Given the importance of the next climate change, Director of the SSRC. John Casey was asked whether the government has been notified: “Yes, as soon as our research revealed these solar cycles and the prediction of the coming cold era with the next climate change I notified all the key offices in the Bush administration including both parties in the Senate and House science committees as well as most of the nation’s media outlets. Unfortunately, because of the intensity of coverage of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and man-made global warming during 2007, the full story about climate change is very slow in getting told. These changes in the sun have begun. They are unstoppable. With the word finally starting to get out about the next climate change, hopefully we will have time to prepare. We will do our best to spread the word along with NASA and others who can see what is about to take place for the Earth’s climate. Soon, I believe this will be recognized as the most important climate story of this century.”9

We are not being told that the poles are not melting and that the temperature on Antarctica continues to drop. The fact that warm regions, such as Miami, are experiencing snow and extreme cold along the gulf coast, is being kept out of the news. A scenario of doom is being concocted to make us fearsome and ignorant. In reality these climate changes are the result of the HAARP installations that heat the ionosphere with their gigantic antennas. Also, the cause of the monster waves on the North Sea and the unprecedented spring 2007 record-breaking heat wave (35 degrees Celsius) in Moscow, and snow in Rio de Janeiro can be trailed back to HAARP. 10

Why do our ruling elite want to control the weather?” Amongst others, the HAARP project is about creating ‘weather modification techniques that trigger storms, hurricanes and earthquakes to achieve military goals.’ 11 Military documents are known to subscribe the intent to use the ionosphere for defence purposes. On January 26, 2007 a small article about the American army wishing to deploy ‘glazed frost’ against enemy vehicles, appeared in a few newspapers. According to the Dutch newspaper Spits issued on January 26, 2007, the Darpa Research Centre of the American ministry of Defence has developed a chemical form of glazed frost that could specifically be used in dry and warm regions, such as the regions of Iraq and Afghanistan. Antiskid layers will be applied over the tires and shoes of Defence personnel to prevent them from sliding as well. A chemical form of glazed frost? We must assume that the source of this chemical can be traced back to the HAARP project. With the aid of HAARP, rain has been caused in India some time ago and snow, glazed frost and thick layers of ice in Jordan and Iraq.

Weather Warfare, namely the manipulation of weather patterns for military use is never mentioned before. However, U.S. military documents claim that HAARP’s main objective is to ‘exploit the ionosphere for Department of Defense purposes.’

The Canadian professor and economist Michel Chossudovsky claims: “Weather manipulation is the pre-emptive weapon par excellence. It can be directed against enemy countries or even ‘friendly nations,’ without their knowledge. Weather warfare constitutes a covert form of pre-emptive war. The manipulation of climate can be used to destabilize an enemy’s economy, ecosystem and agriculture (e.g. North Korea or Cuba). Needless to say it can trigger havoc in financial and commodity markets and can potentially be used as an instrument of ‘insider trade’ for financial gain. It has the ability of destabilizing a country’s institutions. Concurrently, the disruption in agriculture creates a greater dependency on food aid and imported grain staples from the U.S. and other Western Countries.”12

In the Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025, August 1996 we can read: “In the United States, weather-modification will likely become a part of national security policy with both domestic and international applications. Our government will pursue such a policy, depending on its interests, at various levels. These levels could include unilateral actions, participation in a security framework such as NATO, membership in an international organization such as the United Nations, or participation in a coalition. Assuming that in 2025 our national security strategy includes weather-modification, it’s use in our national military strategy will naturally follow. Besides, the significant benefits an operational capability would provide, another motivation to pursue weather-modification is to deter and counter potential adversaries. In this paper we show that appropriate application of weather-modification can provide battlespace dominance to a degree never before imagined. In the future, such operations will enhance air and space superiority and provide new options for battlespace shaping and battlespace awareness. The technology is there, waiting for us to pull it together; in 2025 we can ‘Own the Weather’.”13

By now it is not only the HAARP installation in Alaska that’s heating up the ionosphere. Giant transmitters can now he found on almost every continent. The general term for these installations is EISKAT. These installations are connected to each other and can immediately take over when one of them fails. Moreover, every installation has its own power supply and is, therefore, entirely independent.

Comment: The flaming inferno, cyclones and floods that have already exacted a heavy toll on life and property in Australia were very likely a product of HAARP activity and the ubiquitous chemtrails about which parliamentarians and the media remain silent yet vociferously promote the “climate change” hoax of which they are ignorant. The objective of the UN and other agencies of the ‘hidden hand’ is the ruination of the economies of the developed nations and massive world depopulation through famine, disease, violence and impoverishment prisonplanet.com. If the ‘hidden hand’ was pleased to perpetrate ‘kristal nacht,’ sink the Lusitania, betray and massacre naval forces in Pearl Harbour, murder thousands in 9/11, engineer the Bali, Madrid, Marriott, 7/7 and numerous other bombings, orchestrate the Port Arthur and many shopping mall and school massacres, ensure famine by mandating a percentage of ethanol in all motor fuels, they would have no compunction in murdering a couple of hundred innocent Australians.

Church protests Ohio’s Gay Marriage Ban
Cleveland, January 31, 2009 – Heterosexual couples exchanging wedding vows at Pilgrim Congregational will need an additional civil ceremony by a justice of the peace or a judge to make their union legal. The United Church of Christ, a 1.2 million member denomination headquartered in Cleveland, adopted a resolution supporting gay marriage at a national synod in Atlanta three years ago. . . In a different denomination, dozens of Unitarian Universalist ministers across the country, including those in Arkansas, California and Massachusetts, also have declined to sign state marriage licenses for the same reason. . .

Disappearing Technology
What if a battery existed that allowed you to drive your car for 300 miles on a single charge? That would easily take care of most people’s daily commuting needs. Unfortunately, we’re years away from having a battery like this. Right?

Wrong! It exists, or rather it existed. GM acquired the company that owned the technology—in production, not simply on the drawing board—and then GM sold it to Chevron. Now it’s gone. Full story: brasschecktv.com

The Mystery of the Gospel

The mystery of the Good News in Jesus Christ is the New Testament Church as One Body, composed of both Israelites and Gentiles of Adam’s race (Ephesians 3:1-11; Romans 16:25; Ephesians 6:19; Colossians 4:3).

Romans 2:9-11, “Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that does evil, of the Judahite first, and also of the Gentile [in the immediate future]; but glory, honour, and peace, to every man who works good, to the Judahite first, and also to the Gentile: for there is no respect of persons with God”.

Election and new birth are a mystery to many people, cloaked in superstition and the cobwebs of obscure traditions. Last week I received an email from someone who accused me of teaching salvation by works rather than faith and assured me he was born-again with the evidence of works—speaking in tongues he cannot interpret. Then a Jew who called himself an Israelite Christian or Christian Israelite, but is neither, wrote a dissertation on the Scriptures to emphasize the superiority of what he considers the “elect” or master race—a stigma when applied by the “Elders of Zion” to besmear Germany.

New birth is exclusive to an election from Adam’s race regardless of nationality or colour of skin. Jesus is the last Adam, He is not the last Cain who has no kinsman Redeemer (Leviticus 25:47; Ruth 3). The new birth is the fruit of a clear revelation of the present Truth experientially living through you (I John 1:7), concomitant upon an intimate union with the Word of the hour as the natural birth is attendant upon the mutual love of your parents.

We are elect through God’s foreknowledge of our unity in the faith leading us to sanctification by the Spirit unto the union of our soul with His Spirit through obedience to the revealed Word for the hour (I Peter 1:2); thus God and the soul that is joined together with God is one Spirit (I Corinthians 6:17; Genesis 2:24). God did not arbitrarily choose to love this one and not that, He sent out His Word through the members of His Body to minister to those without and by foreknowledge took note how each would exercise his free will (Malachi 3:16-17; Romans 8:28-31). When “He came to His own land His own nation did not receive Him. But to individuals who did receive Him He gave authority to become God’s children, that is, to those who believe in His Name, who owe their birth neither to human blood, passion or plan, but to God” (John 1:11-13).

Faith had to find its resting place in someone, somewhere, and at the end of the antediluvian world faith found its home in the heart of Noah who preached salvation and a free mystery cruise to whomsoever would believe. After a hundred and twenty years of ministry his faith manifest in the form of an Ark yet His Message did not inspire one new crewman, only a ship load of “dumb animals.” Once aboard, God shut the door and for seven days Noah’s unbelieving congregation scoffed without, but in the holy convocation after the seven days when the animals were settled and Noah’s servile work fulfilled, God opened the windows of heaven and Noah preached to those souls imprisoned in unbelief, having come to the place of no more repentance.

When the Hebrew dispensation ended with His crucifixion, Jesus preached to those same lost souls, vindicating the faith of the Old Testament saints and leading them from death’s prison to the liberty of eternal Life (I Peter 3:18-20). Sensing the Light of PART-Word and Christ’s mediation had grown somewhat dim, having expired with the Church Ages over forty-five years ago, the foolish virgin have sought to buy Baptist, Anglican, Methodist, Pentecostal, charismatic and other blends of Oil, but instead of oil they received snakes of church membership, Pentecostal joy or speaking with unknown tongues. The few who encountered this end-time Message measured it against hearsay or traditions of the world church system instead of the Absolute of God’s unchanging Word, and walked away or took the “letter without the Spirit.” Even now Christ’s Bride is preaching to souls who are imprisoned in human reasoning.

The compliment of Noah’s Ark was a mixed multitude. The wife he took with him was physical Serpent’s seed, and Ham and his wife were not in the faith. Earth was repopulated by Canaan, Ham’s illegitimate son by his father’s wife, who was a master of technology; by the offspring of his lawful wife, and by the offspring of Shem and Japheth. By nature Ham was a practical man, as are his descendants today, while Shem was religious, and Japheth intellectual.

Election followed the family of Shem—not for racial preference since it was genetically identical to Japheth and Ham—but because the family of Shem held to God and had respect to His Word so He communed with them. The families of Ham and Japheth on the other hand were more in tune with the world and they worshipped the pagan deities Ham had introduced from the other side of the Flood so there was little communication with the Lord who respected their free moral agency.

As Ham and Japheth departed from the Spirit to the world, the Lord left them to their own devices and proceeded to lead a Semitic Iraqi Gentile who had separated from his father’s pagan gods to the one true God. Abram was a man of faith and trust prepared to follow the leading of his unseen God to an unseen land. The Lord promised Abram, His Seed (singular) would be heir to the world and bless all families of Adam’s race, and changed his name to Abraham, which means “Father of the Gentiles” (Genesis 17:5). The gift of God’s blessing followed Abraham to his elect heirs, Isaac, Jacob and His thirteen sons because of the communion of faith within that family, not their race.

As regards the election, of the thousands of Semites God called He found faith in one man from the tribe of Eber, whom He commanded, “Get out of your country, and from your [Semitic] kindred, and from your father’s house, to a land I will show you” (Genesis 12:1). Among millions of Semites one man was elect. His wife was a doubter, his father was an idol-worshipping pagan, and the nephew who accompanied him was non-elect. Abram’s election was not based on his Semitic race, but solely upon his faith.

This is borne out by the fact Jacob and Esau were Semitic twin brothers, Hebrew Gentiles born of the same righteous parents, but Esau, who possessed the birthright had no respect to God’s promise to Abraham and marred his inheritance by marrying a Hittite and Canaanite thus his offspring by these wives was Serpent’s seed and excluded from eternal Life. In 130BC, John Hyrcanus, Judah’s high pries defeated and forcibly assimilated the Edomites who “were hereafter no other than Jews” (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, XIII, 9:1). An editor’s footnote on this page quotes the ancient historian, Ammonius, “The Idumeans were . . . subdued by the Jews and compelled to be circumcised, and to unite into one nation, and be subject to the same laws, they were called Jews.” In a few generations Judah’s king was an Edomite (ibid XIV, 1:3) who tried to steal back the birthright and blessing Esau forfeited to Jacob (Genesis 27:39-41), in vain setting up a secular earthly kingdom on a professed Jewish basis to rival Messiah’s Spiritual kingdom then being forerun by John the Baptist.

“Edom is in modern Jewry” (Jewish Encyclopedia, 1925 edition, Vol. 5, p. 41). Even before intermarriage this assimilation meant the majority of Jews were irredeemable Serpent’s seed, hence Jesus did not live and could not walk openly in Judea “for fear of the [non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled] Jews.” Election is not determined by nationality but faith. God dealt especially with the descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Israel not because of their race but because of His promise to the Fathers who imparted faith in His Word (Deuteronomy 7:6-8). Jesus told Shem, Spiritually and through the fulfillment of Genesis 9:27, “The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a (Gk. ‘ethnos’ or Gentile) nation, bringing forth the fruits of His vineyard” (Matthew 21:43). That is, a people with the faith of Abraham (Galatians 3:26-29).

Paul said, “Concerning the [mystery of] the Good News [that is, of the New Testament Church as One Body, composed of both Israelites and Gentiles of Adam’s race] the Israelites are enemies of the Gospel and therefore regarded by God and also His messengers as adversaries so that you Gentiles might be partakers of His promise to Abraham: but so far as the elect Israelites are concerned, they are beloved because of His promises to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and if God’s promise to Abraham’s natural seed is abrogated, the promise to His Spiritual Seed is of little force” (Romans 11:28).

Had the Lord not abandoned the mixed multitude of mainly Edomite Jews to their conceit of self-righteous racial arrogance and religious pride built upon the lewd perversion of Pharisaism, they would have twisted the Gospel revelation as they had strangled the truth of Moses and the prophets, and the Light of God’s Word would never have shone on we Gentiles.

Nominal Christians have become gentrified—swept and garnished with an outward display of the fruits of the Spirit absent within (Matthew 12:43-45). Gullible and naive but “materially rich and in need of nothing, they are inwardly wretched and miserable, Spiritually bankrupt, blind to the faith, naked of the Blood and know it not” (Revelation 3:17-20). Because they have become slothful they are content to hear the secondhand religion of blind leaders of the blind who impart personal bias and presuppositions regarding what the Bible says of Israel and the so-called Jews.

To illustrate, last week I heard an interview with a Roman Catholic who belongs to the Council of Christians and Jews. But to what purpose, since he called himself a Christian? Talmudic Judaism is Pharisaism, which is antithetical to Moses and the prophets and condemned by both Testaments. Jesus denounced the Pharisees as “blind fools and hypocrites, the children of hell whose fathers murdered Abel” (Matthew 15:9; 23). This chap does not realize that the Gentile dispensation will end when the last predestinated Israelite or Gentile is baptized into the One Body of Christ. He is no friend of the blind Jews if he does not lead them out of their ditch. But how can the blind deceived by one secondhand religion aid the blind of another secondhand religion?

Many ministers of the Gospel are enemies of the cross of Christ, and the Jews are our enemies whether we realize it or not (Philippians 3:18; Romans 11:28). They work in secretive ways to disrupt, and inject false understanding of the Scriptures. They have had more influence on our eschatology than we have had on theirs, and more influence on our beliefs about Jesus Messiah than we have had on their understanding as will be clear if you compare the fraudulent Masoretic text of your KJV Old Testament to the Septuagint, and the New Testament with your Lexicon. Much of what nominal Christians in the circle of this Message believe today is the same folly of “Jewish fables, and commandments of men that turn from the truth” withstood by Jesus, Paul and the apostolic saints. This theology, which put God in the box of the pedestal whereon they stood and led them to reject and crucify the Son of man, is leading so-called Spiritual Israel to crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put Him to an open shame (Hebrews 6:6).

When the Lord spoke to Peter in a vision in reply to the prayer and fasting of the Roman centurion, his vision was immediately confirmed, and Peter exclaimed to Cornelius, “Now I thoroughly understand the truth that God is no respecter of persons: but in every nation he who reveres Him and practices righteousness is acceptable to Him” (Acts 10:34-35).

The nation of Israel was born and raised 430 years in Egypt, the world power of that day. Eventually they were enslaved and God led out a mixed multitude with a mighty hand to inherit the land He had promised their forefather, Abraham. Their deliverance under duress saw Menephtah I, the Pharaoh of the Exodus perish in the Red Sea and a decline in the Egyptian superpower. God declared it His express purpose, in defeating this superpower by His spoken Word in the mouth of an octogenarian with nought but a stick in his hand, “to show Pharaoh His power so that His Name might be declared throughout all the earth, and to execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt” (Exodus 9:16; 12:12, etc).

When Israel went under the Law they forsook Abraham’s unconditional covenant of grace for the conditional covenant of a servant subject to the blessings and cursings of Deuteronomy 28 (John 8:35). Less than ninety days out of Egypt and before Moses had descended mount Sinai with the tablets of the Law, Israel broken her blood Covenant and the first two Commandments to worship a golden calf (Exodus 32:33). Then at Kadesh-Barnea, just eleven-days from Mount Sinai, they committed the unforgivable sin: the names of the unbelieving adults were removed from the Book of Life, and they were as lost as Pharaoh (Psalm 95:10-11; John 6:49; Jude 5). Blood membership of the nation of Israel is no indication of election, or even salvation. For as Paul explained, Abraham’s Seed is singular and refers to Christ and those intimately united to Him by faith—either as His servants under the promise of the Old Covenant or as His wife born again in the Gentile dispensation under the New Covenant. So the Sceptre passed to the Tribe of Judah and to the House of David, yet Spiritual blessings did not accrue to those born of the tribe of Judah and of the House of David independent of faith.

The ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom separated from Judah, and following their defeat by Sennacherib in 721BC, Sargon dispersed them throughout the Assyrian Empire where they will remain until Daniel’s Seventieth Week. At the height of its power, Babylon defeated the Southern Kingdom: the Judeans endured the Servitude and the Captivity, while their land rested under the Desolations.

When Cyrus granted permission to the Judeans to return to their own land (Ezra 1:5; 7:13), only a comparatively small number at first availed themselves of the privilege, and few belonging to the kingdom of Israel ultimately joined them under Ezra, Zerubbabel, and Nehemiah, and returned with them to Jerusalem (Jeremiah 50:4-5, 17-20, 33-35). Large numbers had settled and formed numerous colonies in different parts of the kingdom and Babylon remained the centre of Jewish scholarship until about the twelfth century AD. In AD740 Talmudic Jews from Babylon converted the vastly more populous Serpent seed kingdom of Khazaria overnight. Their intermarriage with the Judahites compounded the sin of assimilating the Edomites such that today a Semitic Jew is rare, and despised by the imposters. When the Semitic Israelites of the twelve tribes return to the homeland during the ministry of the Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11, there will only be 144,000 elect Israelites in toto.

Jeremiah, who was imprisoned, was set at liberty at the command of Nebuchadnezzar, and honorably treated on account of having foretold the destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians (Jeremiah 40:1-7). Daniel was honoured by Darius and Cyrus, having foretold their destruction of the Babylonian monarchy, and the consequent exaltation of the Medes and Persians as the new Gentile world power (Daniel 5:6). Jaddua the high priest, in the days of Alexander the Great who had intended to punish the Jews for their fidelity to Darius, met him at the head of a procession and averted his wrath by showing him Daniel’s prophecy that a Grecian king should overthrow Persia, and so won Alexander’s favour for the Jews. And Josephus, having foretold the victory of Vespasian and Titus, was also set at liberty, and honorably treated by the Romans. These are most eminent instances of the interposition of Divine Providence, and of the certainty of Divine predictions in the great revolutions of the four Gentile world kingdoms which will rule Jerusalem unto the consummation (Daniel 9:27; Luke 21:24).

The history of Israel records repeated backsliding and apostasies showing that one cannot become partaker of the Divine nature and overcome the corruption that is in the ‘kosmos’ through lust by the Law of carnal commandments. Paul asked, “Do you who boast in the Law, dishonour God by breaking the Law? For Isaiah 52:5 and Ezekiel 36:20-38 state, the Name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you” (Romans 2:23-24). One must be transformed from within by the renewing of the mind through faith, not external works (Romans 12:2). Referring to a Roman centurion, Jesus told His followers, “I have not found such great faith in all Israel” (Matthew 8:10).

Amos 3:1-3 prophesied, “The Lord has spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying, You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities. Can two walk together, except they be agreed”?

Matthew 3:7-9, “When John the Baptist saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism [only in order to strengthen their self-righteous conceit], he denounced them [as unfit and improper candidates], O generation of vipers! Who has warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bear fruit that befits repentance: and do not presume to say to yourselves, We have Abraham for our father. For I assure you, God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham”.

When Israel scourged, mocked and nailed God’s holy Temple to a tree He turned from that natural nation to call Spiritual Israel, “whomsoever will [of Adam’s race, Israelite or Gentile], to come, and take the water of life freely.” Christ in His Person, and no other, is our peace (Micah 5:4-5a; Isaiah 9:5-6; 52:7; 53:5; Zechariah 9:10; Psalm 72) and this end-time Message is His final call. In Ephesians 2:11-16 we learn His peace is defined by its antithesis—the “enmity” of the Law that separated and engendered hostility between Israelites and Gentiles and God. It was signified by a twofold wall of partition: the inner wall, severing the Israelites from entrance to the naos or holy part of the temple where the priests officiated, and the outer wall or balustrade of stone which separated the court of the Gentile proselytes from access to the court of the Israelites, which it was death for a Gentile to pass (Ezekiel 44:7; Acts 21:28). Thus this twofold wall signified the Law, which both severed all men, even the Israelites, from access to God through sin, which is the violation of the Law (I John 3:4), and also separated the Gentiles from the Israelites. As the term “wall” implies the strength of the barrier, so “partition” or “fence” implies that it was easily removed by God in the dispensation of the fullness of time.

Without Christ we Gentiles were “afar off” by a distance impossible to overcome, “being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world,” nor did the theoretical nearness of Israel to God make their fellowship possible. Circumcision, Mosaic Law, theocracy and promise were of no avail in changing the Israelite from a servant to a son, for each of these elements was external, whereas only the inward work of creative renewal through and in Christ can make one new man of Israelite or Gentile and reconcile one to the other and each to God in One Body by the Cross whereon the enmity was slain.

“This peace of God, which passes all understanding” is not a sensation but the possession of the tranquil state of assured salvation through Christ, fearing nothing from God and content with its earthly lot: it is the status of your soul not your state of mind (Philippians 4:7; John 12:47; I John 4:17-21). By Jesus Messiah both Israelite and Gentile have access to the Father in one Spirit and are made pillars on the foundation of the faith of the apostles and prophets building together a holy Temple of God through the Spirit, which is the mystery of the Good News in Jesus Christ—One Body, composed of both Israelites and Gentiles of Adam’s race.

In Ephesians 2:16 – 3:11 Paul explains that he has been made a prisoner by the self-styled Jews because he has been preaching this mystery of the Good News to the Gentiles, that God’s House, the New Testament Church, is One Body, inclusive of both Israelites and Gentiles. And that his ministry is directed to the Gentiles because the Lord revealed this mystery to him which in previous generations was not made known to the Old Testament prophets (Isaiah 56:6-8; 49:6) with the same explicit distinctness as it is now made known to His holy prophets and apostles (Acts 10:19-20; 11:18-21), that the Gentiles are joint inheritors, share the same Body, and are participants of promise in Jesus Messiah in the Good News, and that he was given this grace in order that he should preach the fathomless wealth of Christ to the Gentiles. And to explain to everybody that God is the saviour of the Gentiles, too, which was a secret fact from the beginning of the world hid in God who created all things (Deuteronomy 29:29).

Ephesians 3:9-11 hearkens back to chapter one where Paul describes God’s resurrection and translation power which will shortly operate in us who believe as it operated in Jesus Christ, “when He raised Him from the dead and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: and has put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the Head over all things to the Church, which is His Body, the fullness of Him that fills all in all” (Ephesians 1:20-23). The purpose of Paul’s preaching is therefore to show all men on earth just what is the mutual fellowship of Gentiles and Israelites with one another in the Body and with God through Christ, our Head that His manifold wisdom might be made known through the Church to “the principalities and powers in heavenly places when all of His Family, made up of both Israelites and Gentiles are seen united in His Bride in fulfillment of God’s eternal purpose in Jesus Christ our Lord”. nl566.htm

Transformation and the World Order

February 6, 2009

Bible Believers’ Newsletter #565

“We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . .”
ISSN 1442-8660

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are pleased you could join us in fellowship.

Jesus prophesied, “Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.” That is, until the consummation. Then He will return as Son of David with the saints of all ages and step out on the atomic ashes of the wicked for a thousand years of peace (Isaiah 24:21-22; Daniel 9:27; Malachi 4:1; Revelation 20:4-7).

“There shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars” (Isaiah 34:4; Joel 2:10; Revelation 6:12) at the close of the Gentile dispensation, which will end seven years before “the times of the Gentiles” with a complete interruption of nature at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial. Earthquakes will sink Los Angeles and 1,500×300-400 miles of California, cleave the mount of Olives and demolish the Dome of the Rock, and lunar volcanoes will turn the moon red as blood, while the sun will be dark.

“And upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity—without resources, without strategy and not knowing which way to turn, the nations—not individual Christians—will be distressed and utterly confused, as George Orwell warned when he disclosed the plans of the ‘Hidden Hand.’ Everything is topsyturvy; morality has been jettisoned and ethics reversed. As Alice in Wonderland and the Jesuits say, “truth is whatever you want it to be”: black is white, wrong is right, lies are truth and the ends justify the means. Multiculturalism with its curse of miscegenation has so divided the world there is no homogeneity within nations; all are being sucked into the vortex of chaos Satan has conspired to conjure his totalitarian new world order. Brother Branham said, “the world is going insane”.

Australian politicians, having made their constituents guarantor for Rothschild and Rockefeller-owned banks that on the basis of derivatives obligations versus equity (2008) are technically insolvent, like decapitated chickens, propose to borrow untold billions from the foreign owners of the same banks for imprudent nonproductive spending that will buy votes while creating a nation of peasants indebted to foreign usurers. One is led to wonder, are there politicians anywhere who are not servants of the City of London, the Vatican or the Black Nobility?

“The roaring of the sea and the [tidal] waves” generated by the earthquake that sinks Los Angeles, will sweep the earth, sinking ships, devastating islands, coastlands and ports, causing “Men’s hearts to fail for dread in apprehension [of nuclear war], and for what is coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven will be shaken [when Satan is cast down to earth] (Isaiah 14:12; Revelation 12:7-12). Then Israel shall see [the sign of] the ‘parousia’ Coming of the Son of man in a cloud with power and great glory” (Matthew 24:3,30-31; Revelation 1:7; 11:19. The sign of His ‘parousia’ Coming to we Gentiles “as a thief in the night” manifest over Arizona, USA on February 28, 1963). “And when these things begin to come to pass, look up, and lift up your heads; for your [full] redemption draws nigh.” For the Gentile dispensation will be over and Christ will have turned to Israel for Daniel’s Seventieth Week (Luke 21:25-28).

We are almost there, and churchgoers who know nothing of Christ’s ‘parousia’ Coming are looking in vain for the return of that Man from Galilee (Matthew 24:22-28; I Thessalonians 5:1-5).

This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.

Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott

Jesuit Presidency

February 4, 2009 – “Pope Blesses Obama” was the title of a report in the National Post, concerning what is apparently the first time a Pope has blessed the American Presidency.

New US president Barak Obama has surrounded himself with Jesuit trained confidants:

His Vice-President is Roman Catholic Joe Biden. Mike Strautmanis, a senior legal counsel to Obama presidential team, is Jesuit trained. Obama’s Chicago mentor is Gregory Galluzzo, a ‘former’ Jesuit priest. Obama’s Chief Speechwriter, Jon Favreau, was Jesuit-trained. Obama’s Senior Military and Foreign Policy Advisor, Maj. Gen. J. Scott Gration, was Jesuit-trained. Obama’s Deputy Communications Director, Dan Pfeiffer, was Jesuit-trained (Codeword Barbelon, by P.D. Stuart).

The significance of this is enormous. It is the fulfillment of a 200 year strategy which involves ownership and command of America’s finances, law courts, military, media, entertainment and pharmaceutical industries. Most Americans won’t want this. But the coup will have been achieved. . . Full story: beforeus.com


HR645: National Emergency Centers Establishment Act

Comment: Disgraced former Florida judge now Congressman Alcee Hastings (D. Fla) introduced this bill two days after the inauguration of President Barack Hussein Soetoro, confirming the words of disgraced President FDR: “If something happens in politics, you can bet it was planned that way.” And the substance of this Bill, whose true objective is to detain those who refuse to obey Rome or accept the mark of the beast, which is her trinity dogma, was “planned” nigh fifty years ago.

In 1963 Brother Branham said, “if your church is not in this Council of Churches, in time of trouble they can use your church to store ammunition or anything they want to. And if any man is caught having a prayer for anybody, outside of affiliating with this Council of Churches, he can be shot, as a federal offense. That’s right. I got the papers on it from Washington. They’re going to force you into it. That’s why I’ve been against this organizational system. That’s it. I had to keep quiet about it being the mark of the beast, but it’s late enough now till you can know it’s the truth” (Just Once More Lord, p. 10:52).

Already 800 staffed internment camps, each accommodating 20,000, and one in Alaska able to accommodate two million await non-trinitarian refuseniks and other dissidents of Rome’s Babylonian theology, iron will, and (once) Protestant image.


When Eagles Flock

February 5, 2009 – Abuse of power under the color of authority is nothing new. However, it has grown geometrically for a long time. I used to think the big push by the controllers started in 1913 but it really probably started with Lincoln.

The oligarchy that controls us is not partisan . . . but they are serious as a heart attack and insidious as cancer. The media that is “supposed” to be our watch dog has become an enabling co-conspirator.

“That the several States composing the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their General Government . . . whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force; that to this compact each State acceded as a State. . .”

A Shadow Government

“A democratic New World Order isn’t the ultimate goal at all. In itself it would be a contradiction in terms” (Tilman Evers, German Evangelical Adult Education).

A constitutional state is characterised by the fact that one is presumed innocent until proven guilty, and by the fact that a group of people someone may not like cannot be arbitrarily taken into preventative custody. The United States possesses a beautiful constitution according to which everyone has a right to be happy in the way he best sees fit. America is proud of being a country of free speech. After 9/11 however, something crucial changed. George W. Bush has discarded ‘habeas corpus’ and the Geneva Conventions, justified torture and secret trials, damned critics as anti-American, and is responsible for over one million deaths of Iraqi civilians.

Matters, no matter how big or small, are now being handled at very high security levels, to the point at which individual civil and human rights are being violated. After 9/11, President George W. Bush formed a shadow government consisting of non-chosen state officials, without consulting publicly appointed representatives (Democrats and Republicans). Instead, he only sought the support of the military. Not one member of the legislative or judicial branch was involved or even aware of this shadow government. In the mountainous east of the US, a provisional government centre was formed and headquartered in October 2001. Consequently, high officials, those directly under the members of cabinet, were temporarily transferred to the new shadow headquarters, each in turn, for a period of three months. This dark and secret government consists of 75 to 150 employees belonging to the legislative power. Judicial documents have been discovered that show that these people were all given mandates belonging to the judicial branch. This setup is completely contrary to the division of power laid out in the country’s constitution. The secret government consists of people authorised to give orders to the military and police services. With this ‘new government’ in place, both the authority of the publicly recognized legislative and judicial branches are overlooked and disregarded. Can such a system be called anything but an open dictatorship?

The Bush government is using the war against terrorism not only as an excuse for advancing their foreign policies, but also with the intention of altering the political life of domestic policies. Abroad, a militarily radical right- wing course was chosen, whilst in his own country. Bush ignored democratic rights. The biggest threat to the American people comes not from the outside, terrorism or Islamic fundamentalism, but from within. It comes from the secret plans of the American government itself. The terrorist attacks were being used as an excuse to create a shadow government that operates with control from the legislative branch. The war against terrorism has become the foundation upon which the Bush administration is, itself, gradually building a dictatorship that is supported by the military and the police. A secret clique of faceless figures rules this shadow government, but for security reasons does so from places unknown.

Don’t think when George Bush leaves office in January 2009, that there will be any changes. Don’t think that a Democrat Government will return the clock. In an interview with The Independent on the 23rd of January 2007. California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was quoted: “Democrats and Republicans have the same goal. We only have different thoughts for which we stand.”

It is important to point out that on the road to that single global government. the United States will also cease to be an independent nation. Those of us who believe that Bush’s war on terrorism, a war that is increasingly derailing, has simply been a stupid error of judgement on the part of the Texan, will see that everything has been planned in advance. For example, the televised pictures of the tortured Guantanomo Bay prisoners were intended to show to the public that Americans do have the moral superiority that they claim to have and on which they base their role as the world’s policeman. The publication of these pictures was designed to invalidate the image that the Americans had of themselves, as a ‘better’ people. When we take a closer look at Bush’s justifications for his invasion of Iraq, we see that there are two sides to the coin. First, the exposure of American mistakes is part of the plan to run their own national state into the ground. War is part of the strategy to bring America’s downfall closer: the more wars the United States wages, the more enemies will emerge. The United States will soon fall! As we already mentioned, this is intentional, since the United States will also have to adapt to the arrival of the New World Order.

Austrian Government Study confirms Genetically Modified (GM) Crops threaten Human Fertility and Health Safety

Los Angeles, November 13, 2008 – A long-term feeding study commissioned by the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety, managed by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Health, Family and Youth, and carried out by Veterinary University Vienna, confirms genetically modified (GM) corn seriously affects reproductive health in mice. Non-GMO advocates, who have warned about this infertility link along with other health risks, now seek an immediate ban of all GM foods and GM crops to protect the health of humankind and the fertility of women around the world. . .

Transformation and the World Order

Luke 8:11, “The Seed is the Word of God”.

John 6:63, “It is the Holy Spirit that gives eternal Life; the mortal spirit that gave life to your flesh cannot quicken your soul: the Words that I speak to you, are Spirit, and eternal Life”.

In Newsletter #564 we discussed “the mystery of the translation of the living saints” which is typed in the Old Testament by the translation of Enoch and Elijah; in the New Testament by the translation from the mount of Olives of our Lord Jesus Christ, and is dependent upon union with God through the agreement of faith.

Our translation is the threefold PROCESS of recognizing and becoming one with the “shout” of Brother Branham’s Message, which unites us to Christ in new birth; obedience to “the Voice of the Archangel,” which is Christ in us confirming the Message from Genesis to Revelation to bring us to maturity in the unity of Bible faith so when the “trump” sounds the end of the Gentile dispensation we can manifest by the ‘third pull’ that we are the Sons of God and by such edification elevate our faith for translation grace. This threefold process is the inner work of faith to give our soul victory over our personal world order (Gk. ‘kosmos’) by subduing our mortal spirit to the Word in our soul so that our mind can bring our body subject. This process may be observed in the transformation of our belief, conduct, nature and dress, however there will be no discernable change in our bodily appearance until the translation.

The word ‘kosmos’ refers not to terra firma but to worldly affairs, the aggregate of things earthly; the whole circle of earthly goods, endowments, riches, advantages, pleasures, etc., which although hollow, frail and transitory, stir desire, seduce from God, and are obstacles to the cause of Christ.

Christians live “in” the ‘kosmos’ although we are not “of” the ‘kosmos.’ We are given this sojourn in time to make our calling and election sure, and to prove our Sonship by overcoming the ‘kosmos’ which is designed and ruled by Satan. We do so by denying ourselves worldly things that we may receive the one thing needful, that being the character of Jesus Christ. Brother Branham said, “Unless we suffer with Him we cannot reign with Him. You have to suffer to reign. The reason for this is that character simply is never made without suffering. Character is a VICTORY, not a gift. A man without character can’t reign because power apart from character is Satanic. But power with character is fit to rule. And since He wants us to share even His throne on the same basis that He overcame and is set down in His Father’s throne, then we have to overcome to sit with Him. And the little temporary suffering we go through now is not worthy to be compared to the tremendous glory that will be revealed in us when He comes. Oh, what treasures are laid up for those who are willing to enter into His kingdom through much tribulation” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 117:1).

I John 2:15-17, “Love not the world [order], neither the things that are of the world [order]. If any man loves the world [order], the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is of the world [order], the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world [order]. And the world [order] passes away, and the lust thereof: but he that does the will of God abides for ever”.

John 16:33, “I have spoken these things, that in Me you might have peace (which is tranquility secure in the harmony of faith). In the world [order] you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world [order]”.

Being dead in Christ Christians have overcome the world order and live under a new heavenly order (II Corinthians 5:14-21; Colossians 3:1-3). Those who claim to be Christians yet also follow the Law—keeping sabbath days, etc., are double-minded and are not standing firm for the liberty with which Christ has made us free, but are again entangled with the yoke of bondage to the ‘kosmos’ (Galatians 5:1). Colossians 2:20-23, “If with Christ you died to the fundamental principles of the world [order], why do you live as though belonging to the world [order]? Why do you allow regulations to be imposed on you such as not eating, tasting or even touching certain foods, as if you were living under the world’s control? Such rules are mere human injunctions and instructions that refer to food destined for destruction in its consumption. These rules have a suggestion of wisdom in self-imposed will-worship and humiliation and unsparing severity of the body, but are of no value when it comes to conquering evil thoughts and fleshly indulgence, but tend to make one proud” (Matthew 15:17; Mark 7:18-19; I Corinthians 6:13).

The Law was imposed upon Israel after they committed the unforgivable sin at Kadesh-Barnea. It was made a curse because no man could ever meet the requirements of the Law, which Jesus nailed to His Cross (Colossians 2:14). We overcome the allure of the ‘kosmos’ not by carnal regulations but by holding God’s Word at the throat of the enemy as a sword in the firm hand of faith. Jesus said, our “Yes and no” should be without equivocation.

II Peter 2:20, “If after they have escaped the pollutions of the world [order] through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, their latter end is worse than their beginning”.

I John 4:4, “You are of God, little children, and have overcome the false spirits and false prophets: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world [order].” Thus Paul implored the Brethren of Rome, “By the mercies of God, present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world [order]: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:1-2).

This transformation begins when the Seed of God’s Word for this hour is implanted into your soul by faith, as your natural life commenced when the seed of your father was implanted into the womb of your mother. The Seed of your Heavenly Father is the baptism with the Holy Ghost that brings Life after His kind as the seed of your earthly father brought forth his kind. And as it grows and blossoms to maturity, the nature of God’s Seed will be seen in your life.

When time and God’s eternal thoughts began to materialise, He created (Heb. ‘bara’) heaven and earth out of nothing. Over trillions and billions of years, stars, planets and galaxies separated from the sun and found their foreordained positions that portray Scripture in the stars. Earth, too, spun far away from the Sun; her hydrogen and oxygen froze, then the ice melted as she moved closer to the Sun, engraving her surface. “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face . . . of the waters” that covered her surface. Then God began to fashion or transform (Heb. ‘asah’) the existing material of earth’s vast disordered wasteland into a habitation for His children.

2009 is the bicentenary of Charles Darwin by whom the hiss of the Serpent proposed the evolution of species, however in Genesis 1:21-27 we find that unlike vegetation, all living creatures from fish to fowl, to insects to man, possess a spirit of life which cannot evolve from mineral matter but is created (Heb. ‘bara’) out of nothing by God’s spoken Word.

God spoke His creative Word Seed over six days of a thousand years (II Peter 3:8) and on the seventh day He rested and watched as each spoken Word seed brought forth the physical seed and vegetation according to its kind after a mist went up and watered the surface of the whole earth. Having provided herbs bearing seed, and fruit trees yielding seed for man and beast, the Lord God fashioned (Heb. ‘yatsar’) or squeezed into shape the first man as a potter forms a vessel of clay into which He placed the soul and mortal spirit. Next He formed (Heb. ‘yatsar) the animals and every living creature, and brought them to Adam to name, so God’s creatures did not evolve from legendary primordial ooze. Considering the order of creation, perhaps those who postulate the evolution of species should regard the apes and cattle as having evolved from man who preceded their formation. Many years after He finished forming his creatures God formed woman as a byproduct of Adam, foreshadowing the oneness of husband and wife who type Christ and His Church.

Like Adam, the Church is born of the breath of God (John 20:22), since “Faith comes by hearing and understanding the Word of God” (Romans 10:17). So your mind is the womb to the Spirit, and when His revealed thoughts are received into your soul, which is you, faith will transform you into His image (Colossians 3:10). By descent every child of Adam is a son or daughter of God (Genesis 1:11). You were in His foreknowledge and spoken when “God said, Let us make (Heb. ‘asah’) man [from existing material] in our image [spirit], after our likeness [character]: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. So God created (Heb. ‘bara’ out of nothing) man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. And God blessed them [every soul spoken for Adam’s race], and God told them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth” (Psalm 82:6). Now not one man was manifest, but the Seed of His Word was spoken that would create the soul planted in the clay of Adam and every one of his children. So the earth in the form of your flesh becomes the incubator that bears the Seed of God.

Thus the soul of every son of Adam is created in the image of God to live for the glory of God, which explains why every soul, sinner or saint must worship . . . something. Because of the fall our soul is not quickened at the birth of our flesh, but lies dormant in a body of sin and trespasses until it is brought to eternal life by the Word of the hour to realize its potential (Ephesians 2:1, 5; Colossians 2:13). Then, instead of being overcome, the Seed of God’s Word will bring the senses of our mortal spirit—memory, imagination, conscience, reasoning and affection, subject to His Word so your mind can take mastery over the senses of the flesh—sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell (Romans 8:11-14; 12:1; I Corinthians 15:31).

The Lord has placed us on free moral agency like Adam and Eve so that our own decisions determine our destiny. And because character is a victory won only by those who overcome the ‘kosmos’ or world order of their hundred pounds of clay, which is in the image of an animal, most will forego their potential and become fallen sons of God, unrecognized as sons and daughters, or even lost. But God and the soul that is joined together with God is one Spirit (I Corinthians 6:17), and by His foreknowledge God knew from the foundation of the world the choices each of us would make.

Since the fall in the garden of Eden, Satan has spent six thousand years hybreeding God’s manifested Word in order to deform His creation from Spirit and Life to death in his counterfeit Eden of scientific reasoning against the Word where he will receive worship according to the prophecies of Isaiah, Jesus and Paul. Like the hybrid dogma of his tax-exempt church corporations, human miscegenation is sponsored by governments and mandated by Satan’s United Nations to replicate the original sin on a global scale “as it was in the days or Noah” (Matthew 24:37; Genesis 6:1-4). In perpetrating the original sin Lucifer incarnate the Serpent, which was a beast in the image of man (until God changed every bone in his body) and deceived Eve who was the real image of man (I Corinthians 11:7). Today his fraudulent world church, which is the image of Christ’s true Church, has deceived the non-elect, and the hybridization of livestock and genetic modification of plants is deforming God’s manifested Word from Spirit and life to death (Revelation 22:18-19).

Isaiah 14:12-13, “How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, mighty though you were against the nations of the world! For you said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven, and exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will preside on the mount of the assembly in the sides of the extreme north.” His new worldly order will deceive all but the very elect as Jesus and Paul prophesied.

Revelation 13:8, “All dwellers upon the earth whose names were not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life shall worship the beast from the sea”.

II Thessalonians 2:3-4, “Let no man deceive you in any way: for the day of the Lord will not come until first there is an apostasy, [then, in the day of the Lord], that man of sin, the son of perdition; who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, will be revealed so that he as God presides in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God”.

When Satan is cast down to earth he will veil himself behind the pope of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church. This week the pope established his bona fides for presiding over the fourth temple of g_d soon to be built on the sides of the north, when he defined the new make-believe religion of the Shoah, or holocaust an essential element of Catholic belief. Benedict XVI follows in the steps of Pius XII who in 1950 declared the make-belief of the Assumption of Mary, Pius IX who in 1854 declared the make-belief of the Immaculate Conception, and Constantine, who in 325 defined the make-belief Trinity worshipped by every pagan nation tribe and tongue, the one true God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

“This was the sign the Jewish world has been waiting for,” declared president of the World Jewish Congress, Ronald S. Lauder.

We all know that historical events are open to free inquiry and free speech. Pope Benedict XVI has done freethinkers everywhere an enormous service. By threatening Bishop Williamson and Catholics generally with excommunication if they do not believe that six million nonexistent Jews were killed in nonexistent gas chambers, Benedict XVI has effectively declared the Jew’s Holocaust religion an article of faith! He has yet to define the holocaust of six million Jews claimed for World War I and the holocaust of six million Jews claimed between the wars in Jewish-controlled Russia as Catholic dogma.

Think about it! Pope Ratzinger has boldly confirmed a truth for which the Jews have persecuted and imprisoned thousands: The gas chamber holocaust was not an historical event! The gas chamber holocaust is a religious doctrine! Are the fraudulent Noahide Laws the next make-belief to be canonized, and dissidents beheaded to please the self-styled Jews?

“CHRISTIANS have to make a choice—”either retain their present belief system and be antisemitic or form a partnership with the Jewish people. As long as Christians keep Jesus as God, they will be antisemitic because that belief must lead them to believe that those who reject Jesus reject God. . .” (Australian Jewish News, July 26, 1996).

In God’s Eden, Adam and Eve were veiled by their innocence; veiled from sin by the Holy Spirit and unconscious of their nakedness. Now in Satan’s Eden the people are once again “naked and know it not” veiled by ignorance of God’s revealed Word and knowledge of the world order (Hosea 4:6; Revelation 3:17-20).

Hebrews 4:11-13, “Let us labour to enter into the rest [of faith in the present Truth], lest any man fall after the example of unbelief of the Israelites at Kadesh Barnea whose names were blotted from the Book of Life. For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow of the body, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight: but all things are naked and opened to the eyes of Him with whom we have to give account”.

So all of our thoughts, words and actions since the age of accountability are recorded in the fourth dimension and can be replayed by the omniscient God in an instant of time just as man can transmit the colour, sound and action of a television production. Of course God knew the end before the beginning, but every soul began life on the basis of innocence with the opportunity to choose wisdom or faith. It is possible to commit the unforgivable sin as Israel did, and as the churches are doing now, and be blessed of God. For the sake of the children who would enter the Promised Land, God continued to bless those Israelites whose names had been removed from the Book of Life (Hebrews 10:26-27). And He can prosper your business and your home even though your name has been blotted from the Book of Life.

Take the Word of God and apply it to discern any shortcomings in your life that you may “be transformed by the renewing of your mind, and prove what is that good, acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” For by taking God’s great and precious promises we will become partakers of the divine nature and escape the corruption that is in the world order through lust, and that transforming power will lead to translation power. nl565.htm

The Mystery of the Translation of the Living Saints

February 1, 2009

Bible Believers’ Newsletter #564
“We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . .”
ISSN 1442-8660

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The last sign Jesus promised before the close of the Gentile dispensation was a repetition of the conditions of Sodom, and three men who would minister worldwide. One would veil God and reveal “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today and forever . . . discerning the thoughts and intents of people’s hearts”: healing the sick, raising the dead, restoring sight to the blind and casting out demons. This was fulfilled in the ministry of William Branham whose Message was directed to the souls of an elect and called out group separated from this Sodom civilization. The two other messengers were Billy Graham and Oral Roberts, who ministered to the churches in Sodom, whose spirit has taken over the White House . . .

“As it was in the days of Lot:” guests at Barack Hussein Obama’s inauguration included homosexual Episcopalian Bishop Gene Robinson and antichrist minister Rick Warren of the City of London’s Council on Foreign Relations, which selects US presidential candidates. Brother Branham said, “the word “Ricky” means “a rat.” When you say “little Ricky” you mean “little rat.” What you call him, that’s what he is. If your kid’s named that, change it quickly for the sake of the Gospel. You never heard such names as that back in the Bible or in any other age. It’s the name for this age. If there ever was perverted rats and cats, it’s there” (God of this Evil Age, p. 34:155).

The United States as an antitype of Israel (Ezekiel 22:23-31). But for His chosen, by their own choosing, God has made a way of escape called the mystery of the translation of the living saints, which is the subject of our main article this week.

This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.

Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott

W A N T E D
Anonymous self-described Israeli human rights activists have set up an Internet site detailing alleged war crimes committed by senior government officials and Israel Defense Forces officers. No known human rights organization is behind the site, whose founders refuse to give their names.

wanted.org.il includes “arrest orders,” complete with pictures and personal details, for Defense Minister Ehud Barak, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, Deputy Defense Minister Matan Vilnai, Public Security Minister Avi Dichter, National Infrastructure Minister Benjamin Ben-Eliezer, IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi and his two predecessors, Dan Halutz and Moshe Ya’alon, former air force commander Eliezer Shkedy and others. It also explains how to inform the International Criminal Court in The Hague when the “suspects” are outside Israel—hence vulnerable to arrest.

How to Kill a Palestinian

January 29, 2009 – Commenting on the latest Israeli one-directional onslaught against the Palestinians of Gaza Strip, the Israeli 10th TV channel has disclosed that the Israeli genocidal forces had used half of its air force and had launched at least 2,500 air raids against Gaza Strip. The television military correspondent stated that the Israeli warplanes had dropped more than a thousand tons of explosives, including white phosphorous and DIME (Dense Inert Metal Explosive) bombs, during three weeks on the virtually unarmed densely populated 360 square Kilometers Strip. He added that the shells fired by tanks, artillery, gunboats, and infantry were not included in those fired by the air force.

After a whole week of continuous air bombardments Israel sent in its elite foot soldiers; 30,000 of them, and called in 10,000 of its reservists. Armed with the latest weapons of mass murder, covered with an umbrella of free reigning air force, and accompanied with raining shells of heavy artilleries, they drove their tanks into the civilian towns murdering civilians and destroying every structure in their path.

Living outside of Gaza one cannot fully understand the barbarity of this genocide especially when the Western media had barely covered any of its atrocity. To gain a slight idea of its enormity one should remember that, during the 6-days war of 1967, this same Israeli army was distributed on four fronts; Egyptian, Jordanian, Syrian, and Lebanese, and it was fighting regular armies. Now the whole brunt of this army is concentrated on a small strip against an unarmed and untrained civilian population.

Similar to all their previous wars the Israeli soldiers had committed massacres against Palestinian unarmed civilians. They have used internationally banned weapons such as phosphorous bombs, DIME, and depleted uranium, as reported by international physicians, eyewitnesses, and military experts. Israeli soldiers had mutilated the bodies of their victims to instill terror in the hearts of people hoping they will leave Gaza. . . “All of the Palestinians must be killed; men, women, infants, and even their beasts” cries the religious opinion of Rabbi Yisrael Rosen, director of the long-established Tsomet Religious Institute. . .

Israeli spokeswoman, Tzipora Menache, stated that she was not worried about negative ramifications the Israeli onslaught on Gaza might have on the way the Obama administration would view Israel. She said “You know very well, and the stupid Americans know equally well, that we control their government, irrespective of who sits in the White House. You see, I know it and you know it that no American president can be in a position to challenge us even if we do the unthinkable. What can they do to us? We control congress, we control the media, we control show biz, and we control everything in America. In America you can criticize God, but you can’t criticize Israel”. Full story: uruknet.info

Hate Bill, ENDA top Obama Wish List
January 26, 2009 – As a smiling Obama rides a tidal wave of public approval, the White House webpage (“Civil Rights”) reveals his true identity: a left-of-left liberal determined to pass the most pro-homosexual, free-speech destroying legislation ever to come before Congress, including ENDA, expanded hate crime laws, and legal “support for the LGBT community”.

Obama says, “this nation is going to live up to its founding promise of equality by treating all its citizens with dignity and respect.”

The White House webpage says he wants to:

Expand Hate Crimes Statutes
Fight Workplace Discrimination
Support Full Civil Unions and Federal Rights for LGBT Couples
Oppose a Constitutional Ban on Same-Sex Marriage
Repeal Don’t Ask-Don’t Tell
Expand Adoption Rights
Full story: truthtellers.org

Comment: It took Obama only three days in office to unveil his homosexual agenda. Hate crimes legislation will outlaw the Bible and criminalize opposition to homosexuality “as it was in the days of Lot” (Luke 17:28-30). Homosexuals, atheists and Jews are protected while Christians, Muslims and heterosexuals are targeted by hate laws that empower minorities in order to disarm and disinherit the majority. This national apostasy is Satan’s Eden in the making and a harbinger of the ‘squeeze’.

Two US Airstrikes offer a Concrete Sign of Obama’s Pakistan Policy
January 24, 2009 — The shaky Pakistani government of Asif Ali Zardari has expressed hopes for warm relations with Obama, but members of Obama’s new national security team have already telegraphed their intention to make firmer demands of Islamabad than the Bush administration, and to back up those demands with a threatened curtailment of the plentiful military aid that has been at the heart of US-Pakistani ties for the past three decades.

The separate strikes on two compounds, coming three hours apart and involving five missiles fired from Afghanistan-based Predator drone aircraft, were the first high-profile hostile military actions taken under Obama’s four-day-old presidency. A Pakistani security official said in Islamabad that the strikes appeared to have killed at least 10 insurgents, including five foreign nationals and possibly even “a high-value target” such as a senior al-Qaeda or Taliban official.

It remained unclear yesterday whether Obama personally authorized the strike or was involved in its final planning, but military officials have previously said the White House is routinely briefed about such attacks in advance. . .

Joe Brandt’s 1937 Dream come True?
The pastor of one of our sister Churches made the following observations based on Joe Brandt’s Spiritual dreams that formed the basis of the main article in Newsletter #346, which deserves fresh consideration.

In 1937, seventeen-year-old Joe Brandt received a series of Spiritual dreams in a Fresno, California hospital where he was recovering from brain concussion after falling from his horse. His dreams appear to accord with Brother Branham’s prophecy of the sinking of Los Angeles and much of California, with tidal waves and volcanic activity devastating parts of countries bordering the “Pacific ring of fire,” but also South America, Mexico—even England, Europe and Japan.

Joe Brandt noted his dreams were set in early Spring, which is Scripturally the time for the end of the Gentile dispensation when an earthquake will sink Los Angeles, commencing the first resurrection and the manifestation of the Sons of God. He noted the absence of birds which, in response to their God-given instinct had evacuated the city of Los Angeles, and said that the sound made by the earth was like the cry of a woman in childbirth.

This is what we wrote in Newsletter #346: “I wondered what year it was. It certainly was not 1937. I saw a newspaper on the corner with a picture of the President. It surely wasn’t Mr. Roosevelt. He was bigger, heavier, big ears. If it wasn’t 1937, I wondered what year it was. . .” I note political cartoonists sometimes accentuate George II’s ears which can appear prominent from certain angles. I wonder . . . We should know the identity of this president after the November elections in two week’s time”.

The pastor wrote: “Last year, Obama’s big ears and stature well resurged the 1937 dream of Joe Brandt to me . . .” (Obama by Calderon, Mexico’s Leading Editorial Cartoonist).

(In Newsletter #409 we thought “Big Ears” might have been George II, but he turned out to be Noddy. Two weeks ago I read a file that observed Obama’s ears “stick out” or are “big,” not in size but in prominence. You will find the image half way down this page – Ed).

The pastor quotes CNN: “The myriad comparisons between the two skinny, big-eared Illinoisans—Obama’s own fond description—are already entering the realm of modern legend. Both were believed too inexperienced to be president.”

“Both were long-shot underdogs for their party’s nomination. Yet each went on not only to win, but to nominate the defeated party favorite (who happened to be a senator from New York) as secretary of state. William H. Seward was Lincoln’s choice, Hillary Clinton is Obama’s”.

In some of Obama’s oath speeches, I detect he has taken an oath for the NWO and pledged to divide Iran and Afghanistan into several nations. During the Presidential campaigns late last year Joe Biden said that Barack Obama would be tested in his first few months in office. There will be an international crisis and he’ll make the right response.”

And now the time of depression.

(NWO/UN policy is to divide the nations up into tribes so that there can be no consolidated wealth or power to jeopardize their rule. He has taken the oath a second time. This time WITHOUT the Bible, so his “absolute” is whatever his masters want it to be – Ed).

Has America not come to its end in Obama presidency? Is not the cycle the Illuminati serpent tail inside it’s head now full?

Brother Branham said: “A prophecy I made about 1935 or something like that said: “The time would come (It’s written in a book somewhere) that the sea would weep it’s way into the desert.” Look what’ll take place. If that thousands of square miles falls down into the lava of the earth and slides in, there’ll be millions die at one time. And that’ll cause such a tidal wave. . . Remember, plumb up into the Salton Sea is a hundred or two hundred feet lower than the sea level. That water will probably come almost to Tucson with that tidal wave coming across there. And the sea shall weep its way into the desert (William Branham, Trying to do God a Service without being in the Will of God, p. 6:25).

The Spirit of the Lord came upon the Prophet as he was preaching in Los Angeles: “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.”

“O, 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 till this day.” And Sodom and Gomorrah lays at the bottom of the Dead Sea, and Capernaum’s in the bottom of the sea. Thou city, who claims to be the city of the Angels, who’s 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, with your fine churches and steeples, and so forth the way you do; remember, one day you’ll be laying in the bottom of this sea. Your great honeycomb under you right now. The wrath of God is belching right beneath you. How much longer He’ll hold this sandbar hanging 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. 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” (Choosing a Bride, p. 35:3-5).

And three is a witness: “The last meeting I had in California, while speaking, and didn’t know nothing happened till I got on the street, It told California, said, “Capernaum, Capernaum, the city that’s called by the name of the angels (that’s Los Angeles), you’ve exalted yourself into heaven, but you’ll be brought down into hell. For if the mighty works had been done in Sodom that’s been done in you, it would’ve been standing till this day.”

“Now, the last few days, the great roaring and popping. Then, here come out a paper of science, said, “It’s all honeycombed; it’s got to go under.” They just know it.”

“And you watch, the water will come plumb back into the Salton Sea. Los Angeles is doomed for judgment. I tell you before it happened, that you might know when it does happen. I never spoke that by myself. And I’ve never had Him to tell me one thing but what happened. And you can bear record of that. That’s right. When? I don’t know.”

“I went out, and they told me what I said. And I listened, went back and searched the Scripture. You know, Jesus said, almost in them same words about Capernaum; and Sodom and Gomorrah was in the bottom of the Dead Sea, I suppose. And later, about a hundred years later, Capernaum slid into the sea, and it’s in the sea. The same God that put Sodom in the sea for its sins, the same God that put Capernaum in the sea for its sins, the same God will put Los Angeles in the sea for its sins, that city of corruption” (Works is Faith Expressed, p. 8:61-64).

The Mystery of the Translation of the Living Saints

Psalm 16:8-11, “I have set the Lord at the forefront of my thoughts: and because He is so near, I shall never be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices: my body also dwells securely [in the hope of preservation from death]. For You will not forsake my soul in Sheol [the realm of departed souls as distinct from the grave, which is the place of the bodies of the deceased]; nor allow Your Holy One to see corruption. You will make me know the [upward] way to perpetual life [in contrast to the downward way to Sheol]: in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand [to which Christ was exalted] there are pleasures enduring for evermore”.

Based on verse 10, the Pharisees fantasized that the body of king David was preserved from decay. However, on the day of Pentecost Peter refuted the myth, testifying that this verse refers to the resurrection of Jesus. Acts 2:22-36: “You men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know: this Jesus being delivered by the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you have crucified and killed by the wicked hands of lawless men. But God raised Him up, having loosed the pangs of death, so He could not be held in its grip. For David says concerning Him:”

“I foresaw the Lord always before me, for He is at My right hand, that I may not be disquieted. For this My heart was gladdened and My tongue rejoiced; My flesh also rests in hope: because You will not abandon My soul in Hades, nor permit Your Holy One to see corruption. You have made known to Me the ways of life; You will fill Me with good cheer in Your Presence”.

“Men and brethren, let me speak plainly to you of the patriarch David, that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn to him with an oath, that He would seat one of his descendants on his throne, David foresaw and spoke of the resurrection of Christ, that He would not be abandoned to the realm of the dead; neither would His flesh see corruption. This Jesus has God raised up; of this we all are witnesses.”

“Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, He has poured out this, which you now see and hear. For David did not ascend into the heavens: but he says himself: The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at My right hand, until I make your enemies a stool for Your feet. Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God has made this Jesus, whom you have crucified, both Lord and Christ”.

Testifying to the resurrection in the synagogue at Antioch, Paul said in Acts 13:32-41: “We declare the good news how God has fulfilled His promise to the fathers of victory over sin and death to us their children, by raising Jesus from the dead; as it is written in the second Psalm: “You are My Son, today have I begotten You [from among the dead].” As for the fact that He raised Him from the dead [glorified], no more to see corruption, He said in this way, I will give you the sacred blessings assured to David (II Samuel 7:8-17). For this reason He says also in Psalm 16, “You will not suffer Your Holy One to see corruption.” For David, after serving the purpose of God in his own generation, died and was buried with his fathers, and underwent decay: but He, whom God raised saw no corruption.”

“It should be clear to you, men and brethren, that through this One Man forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. In Him every believer is justified from all things from which you could not be liberated by the Law of Moses. Beware therefore, lest the prophetic utterance does not become your curse: Look, you scoffers, marvel, and perish: for in your days I will accomplish a deed such as you will never believe, even if someone relates it unto you”.

Acts 5:30: “The God of Israel’s forefathers raised up Jesus, whom the Judeans killed and hanged on a tree.” But the question is how did God raise up our Lord Jesus? As His end-time Bride you must know in order to apply the answer to your own life with the same result. The mystery of God was finished forty-four years ago, yet how many within the circle of this Message have a revelation of the original sin? Most Brethren haven’t a clue as to the identity of various groups of physical Serpent’s seed, or a clear understanding of the true oneness of the godhead. Yet if we are to participate in the translation we absolutely need to know how God raised and subsequently translated Jesus, because God never changes His Word or His way, and this is how He will raise and glorify the sleeping saints and translate the end-time Bride (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8; Matthew 17:1-2; Acts 1:8-10).

From the start of His ministry Jesus knew the answer and He applied this insight to resurrect and later translate Himself. Speaking of the temple of His body, He told the Jews, “[When you] destroy this temple, in three days I will raise it up” (John 2:19, 21).

Jesus possessed a clear revelation He was one with the Father by the agreement of faith, and after overcoming His human desires in the garden of Gethsemane He prayed for you and me and every member of His Bride from the approaching day of Pentecost to the end of this present holy convocation, “That they all may be one; as You, Father, are one in agreement with Me and I am one in agreement with you, that they also may be one in us . . . and the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one, even as we are one” (John 17:21-26).

Jesus knew who He was and the prophecies of Scripture He was foreordained to fulfill. He knew it was necessary for the Israelites to reject Him as their Kinsman Redeemer in order that he could redeem His Gentile Bride (as prophesied by Moses in Deuteronomy 32 and typed in the Book of Ruth). Jesus knew He must first redeem Israel and as God’s law of redemption requires a life for a life, that at the hands of self-styled Jews and Israelites blinded by apostate priests and denominational rabbis, His Life would substitute for theirs. He knew corruption sets in within three days, and that He must resurrect within that time in order to fulfill king David’s prophecy in Psalm 16:10.

If you are a married man or woman you must have a revelation who and what your wife or your husband is. And if you are a Christian you must know who your Spiritual Husband is, and what Jesus is doing now. You will know by a clear revelation of the present Truth and see those Scriptures living through you automatically with no put-on, so that you know that you know that you know from God’s Word you are Christ’s Bride. Your love will make you intimate with the Message, taking the spoken Word of Brother Branham back to the written Word from Genesis to Revelation in order to show yourself approved of God with His mind in you (II Timothy 2:15; Philippians 2:5).

Those who believe themselves Christians because they recognize Brother Branham as God’s Prophet and attend a Message Church are fool-ish virgins in a fool’s paradise. If you hope to share the glory given to Jesus you must be made perfect in the unity of the faith as Jesus prayed, not the unity of church fellowship. The Christian walk is a one-on-one walk with Christ the Word whom to know by faith is to love, not with your pastor, Brother Anthony or anyone else. You cannot enter this unity of the faith independently of the Message of God’s prophet, and you cannot grow to maturity in the faith unless you become familiar with the Message.

Many of us fail to appreciate the fulfillment of God’s precious promise to us in the ministry of Brother Branham. Brother Branham was a Covenant prophet promised in Scripture four hundred years before the birth of Jesus. Can you imagine how difficult it was for this uneducated man born in poverty to see how he could “Pray for great men, statesmen, and kings of the earth” as spoken by the Angel of the Lord? And to reveal Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, and today, and forever before congregations of tens and hundreds of thousands (Luke 17:28-30)? This was the fruit of faith enabled by grace. Like Jesus Himself, Brother Branham knew who he was, recognized his place in the Bible, and brought his mortal senses under preeminence to the Spirit of the Lord so those Scriptures might be fulfilled in his life and ministry.

Brother Branham was the firstfruit of we who are Christ’s at His ‘parousia’ Coming (I Corinthians 15:23). His submission to the Word; his clear revelation of who he was, his office and sacred mission, his righteous humility, freed him from doubt or condemnation to take authority over Satan and his demons, demanding they loose their victims and depart. He stood on God’s promises, entertained no doubt, and those promises were fulfilled. His faithful obedience is the pattern for all who will exercise the ‘third pull’ in the manifestation of the Sons of God.

“We are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise who is the earnest of our inheritance unto the redemption of His purchased possession to the praise of His glory.” This is wonderful, but it is merely the conception of Spirit babes who must grow up and mature in every way into the likeness of Jesus, the Head of the Body, who set the pattern for our full adoption, to which end Paul prayed that the saints might receive faith for resurrection and translation. Ephesians 1:17-20, “May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him: the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know the nature of the hope to which He has called you, and what is the wealth of His glorious inheritance in the saints (new Jerusalem, which together with Jesus is God manifest in the flesh of His glorified Family), and how overwhelmingly great is His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty strength, which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places”.

Jesus’ resurrection and subsequent translation was produced by living faith in the promises of God’s unchanging Word. Paul prayed for the New Testament saints of all Ages, that our hearts might be enlightened by the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of the present Truth—the Word for our day, to recognize our position in the Word and our place in the Body. Brother Branham said, “Christ in the True Church is a continuation of the Book of Acts. But the Book of Revelation shows how the antichrist spirit would enter the church and defile it, making it lukewarm, formal and powerless. It exposes Satan, revealing his works (the attempted destruction of God’s people and the discrediting of God’s word) right down to the time he is cast into the lake of fire. He fights that. He cannot stand it. He knows that if the people get the true revelation of the true Church and what she is, what she stands for and that she can do the greater works, she will be an invincible army. If they get a true revelation of the two spirits within the framework of the Christian church, and by God’s Spirit discern and withstand the antichrist spirit, Satan will be powerless before her. He will be as definitely thwarted today as when Christ withstood his every effort to gain power over Him in the desert. Yes, Satan hates revelation. But we love it. With true revelation in our lives, the gates of hell cannot prevail against us, but we will prevail over them” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 15:3).

Well, how will we be enabled to exercise the invincible power of the ‘third pull’ and manifest that we are the Sons of God when Christendom is divided into a Babylon of Judaeo-Roman confusion as regards doctrine, and our nations are ruled by Babylonian usurious banksters under Talmudic legislation? God’s provided solution is called faith. His one and only Church is not built upon learning from “flesh and blood,” but on Spiritual revelation from Above (Matthew 16:17). By faith, which is a clear revelation that agrees with God’s Word from Genesis to Revelation we must discern and withstand the antichrist spirit.

Peter declared God’s way in Acts 3:22-23, “The Lord your God will raise up an Israelite Prophet like Moses; Him shall you hear in all things whatsoever He shall say. And it shall come to pass, that every soul that will not listen to that prophet, will be utterly destroyed from among the people”.

Turn with me to Matthew 17:11 and read what that Prophet commended, and remember, “every soul that will not listen to that prophet, will be utterly destroyed from among the people” (Heb. ‘cherem’ as we read in Revelation 22:19), including you and me. After God showed Peter, James and John a vision signifying Christ’s ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel revealed by the two Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11, “They asked, Why do the scribes say that Elijah must first come? Jesus responded, The Elijah Malachi 4:5-6 truly will precede these prophets to Israel and restore to the Church all things [spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began]. But John the Baptist was the Elijah of Malachi 3:1: he restored nothing, but laid the ax to the root Jewish denominational principles and was rejected and murdered by the people of Israel, who will murder Me too”.

It is impossible for God to contradict His Own Word, which is His eternal thoughts expressed. To parse Luke 1:37 and declare, “with God nothing shall be impossible,” is to misrepresent God (Revelation 22:19) who requires the agreement of two or three Scriptures to establish a context. As His first Bible was written in the heavens, it is impossible for God to do anything of great moment without first showing a heavenly sign (Genesis 1:14; Psalm 19:1-6; Romans 1:19-20; 10:18), and it is impossible for God to bring judgment without first sending a vindicated prophet with warning and a way to escape its oncoming storm (Amos 3:6-8; Genesis 18:17; Malachi 4:5-6; Isaiah 42:9; Revelation 10:7).

The Lord sent us the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6, Matthew 17:11 and Revelation 10:7 to restore our heart to the faith of our apostolic fathers and finish the mystery of God, which is the revelation of Jesus Christ hidden under the Seven Seals. This was William Branham, whose ministry revealed Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, and today, and forever by “discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart” in this sodomite world “as it was in the world of Lot,” which was the last sign Jesus promised before the close of the Gentile dispensation (Luke 17:28-38; Genesis 18; Hebrews 4:12; 13:8). His Message was the midnight cry” of Matthew 25:6, which is “shout” of I Thessalonians 4:16 that was confirmed by the heavenly “Voice” of Revelation 18:4, calling the wise and foolish virgin out from Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches “into the unity of the faith” (Ephesians 4:13) for “the manifestation of the Sons of God” (Romans 8:19) and the translation (I Corinthians 15:46-57).

The revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963 brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form as prophesied in I Corinthians 13:10; I Thessalonians 4:16, and Revelation 10:1-7. So you see, Christianity is not a “do it yourself” religion, for the Lord God established a certain Church Order. He gave us prophesies that must be fulfilled and shadows and types by means of which we may know what to watch for, and He ordained a fivefold ministry of men, not women, to perfect the saints for the work of ministering to those who are without the Body, and to edify those who are within.

There have been three resurrections to glory in the Old Testament, and three is a witness. Enoch and the first Elijah were translated without seeing physical death (Genesis 5:24; II Kings 2:11), and Jesus was resurrected on the third day after His crucifixion (Luke 23:50 – 24:46).

Enoch—one man called from the seventh generation from the first Adam had the testimony that he pleased God (Hebrews 11:5). Enoch types Christ’s end-time Bride, called out from the seventh generation from the last Adam, who before she is translated, will have the testimony that she pleases God by being at one with Him in the unity of the faith. Elijah exercised the ‘third pull’ and so pleased God, He chose to endue four more prophets with the same anointing—Elisha who received a double portion, John the Baptist who introduced Christ’s ‘erchomai’ Coming to Israel, William Branham who introduced His ‘parousia’ Coming to we Gentiles, and the Elijah of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 who, with a Hebrew prophet endued with the anointing of the Spirit that rested upon Moses, will introduce Christ’s ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel.

God being omniscient, can never change His Word or His ways. What He did the first time, He must do every time because that was perfect to begin with. All of His actions, and His motives, and His power, and all that He is was perfect from the beginning (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8). This means that the resurrection of the PART-Word Body of the Church Ages and the translation of the living Body-Word will follow the pattern observed in the resurrection of the Old Testament saints and the translation of our Head. The Word of the Lord came to Enoch. The Word of the Lord came to Elijah, who was also a prophet, and the Word of the Lord was Jesus, the God-Prophet. Now the Word of the Lord has come to His end-time Bride—not PART-Word as revealed to the Church Age Saints during Christ’s mediation for their ignorance of the fullness while the Book was sealed, but the fullness Himself (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:1-7).

There will be three resurrections to glory in the New Testament. There was the resurrection of the Old Testament saints (Matthew 27:50-53) and Jesus’ translation from the mount of Olives in view of His disciples thirty-seven days later, ten days before the fiftieth day of the Pentecostal feast (Mark 16:19-20; Acts 1:9-11). Second will be the resurrection of the Church Age saints and translation of Christ’s end-time Bride (I Thessalonians 4:12-18); third will be the resurrection and translation of Israel’s two prophets (Revelation 11:7-12).

The resurrection and translation of the New Testament Church was typed by the Old Testament Church and our Lord Jesus Christ who is the keystone that unites and raises the saints of all Ages to glory. Matthew 27:50-53 explains how Christ’s death marked the close of the dispensation of the Law, “And the curtain secluding the Holy of Holies in the Temple was torn apart from top to bottom; and there was an earthquake that split the rocks; and the tombs were opened and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised [in glorified flesh] after His resurrection, and they went into the holy city, and appeared to many.” Then on the fortieth day Jesus was taken up from the earth and a cloud received Him out of their sight. Acts 1:10-11, “And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, two men stood by them in white apparel; who said, Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same manner in which you have seen Him go into heaven”.

In Matthew 16 Jesus said to His disciples, “There are some standing here who will not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in His Kingdom.” And after three days, Peter, James and John—three is a witness—typing the 144,000 elect Israelites, saw the order of the resurrection rehearsed, and Christ’s ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel. Moses typed the sleeping saints who will be resurrected, and Elijah typed the end-time Bride who will be translated. I Thessalonians 4:14-17, “If we believe that Jesus died and rose again, in a similar way through Jesus, God will bring with Him the New Testament saints who have fallen asleep. For this we declare by the Word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the ‘parousia’ Coming of Christ will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself (not a second or third person) will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Afterward we who 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. which are dead; for the trumpet of God shall sound, and the dead in Christ shall rise first; we which are alive and remain, will be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we always be with the Lord.”

We see the “shout” signified in Revelation 10:1-4 when Christ descended with the open Book, placing judgment on Rome, the beast from the sea, and the United States, the beast from the earth, “while with a loud voice like the roar of a lion, He gave a shout, and as He shouted, seven thunders raised their voices.” The mysteries of the seven thunders are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals, which is Brother Branham’s Message that literally turns the heart of the children back to the faith of their apostolic fathers. His Message rouses the virgin from their slumber in denominational creeds and traditions to the revelation of “the faith once delivered to the apostolic saints” (Jude 3). So it ought to be clear that “every soul that will not listen to that prophet, will be utterly destroyed from among the people” because God is known by revelation from Above, not human reason (Acts 2:3:23; Malachi 4:6; Hebrews 6:8; Revelation 16:17-21; 22:17-19).

The Lord does all three things as He descends accompanied by the theophanies of the Church Age saints. The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form, and He is present now with the saints. Revelation 8:1, “When He had opened the Seventh Seal, there was silence in heaven for a short space of time.”

Jude 14-15, “Enoch, the seventh from [the first] Adam, prophesied saying, Behold, the Lord [Jesus in the office of Son of man] comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment against all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their impious activities which they have committed in such an ungodly way, and of all the harsh words which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.” So if Jesus has come from heaven with ten thousands of His saints, and the Bible said that heaven was empty for the space of a half hour. Where is this big fellow God, if He is not manifest in Christ?

Jesus returned “as a thief in the night” when Christendom had apostatised and “would not endure sound doctrine; but in order to satisfy their carnal desires, gather to themselves teachers to suit their own likings and turn away from listening to truth, and wander into fables” (II Timothy 3:4; II Thessalonians 2:3-12).

John 5:16-30, “The Jews persecuted and sought to kill Jesus because He had healed a man on the sabbath day. But Jesus answered them, My Father has not ceased working even until now, and I must be about My Father’s business. For this the Jews sought the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the sabbath but also called God His own Father, making Himself equal with God. Jesus replied, Truly, I assure you, The Son is not able to do anything of Himself, but only what He sees the Father doing: for what ever He does, the Son does in the same way.”

Jesus spoke only what was inspired to Him by the Spirit, so it was THUS SAITH THE LORD, and did only what He foresaw by vision, so He knew His actions were THUS SAITH THE LORD. Brother Branham’s life and ministry emulated His example of preeminence, as must your life and ministry in order to glorify God the Token on display.

“For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him everything that He Himself does (see John 16:13, which applies to you and to me): and He will show Him still greater deeds than these, that you may marvel. For as the Father raises up the dead, and gives them life even so the Son quickens whom He will [principally to spiritual Life]. The Father judges no one, but has given all judgment to the Son, so that all may honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He who does not honour the Son does not honour the Father who sent Him” (John 12:47-48).

This is a condemnation of the Jews who according to their hierarchical status would hinder Jesus in His work of spiritual and physical quickening having set themselves as judge of the world, and condemn it to death. Their rejection of Messiah is blasphemy of the Father who sent Him, for one cannot worship the Father without worshipping the Son (Isaiah 45:21-25; John 20:28; Philippians 2:10-11). Times have not changed, and judgment is still committed to the Son but not until after the dispensation of grace that followed the dispensation of Law and the ongoing indictment of the world order since the revelation of the Seals in this present holy convocation.

“Truly, I assure you, he who receives My Message and believes on Him who sent Me has eternal Life and will not come under condemnation, but has passed from death into eternal Life. (The dispensation would soon change from God above His people under the Law, to God in His people by grace through faith in Jesus Messiah, who at this point was God with His people. The manifestation of His Message in believers is the operation of imparting eternal Life – John 6:63; James 1:18; I Peter 1:23). Truly, I assure you, The hour is coming—and is now being heralded by signs and wonders—when the [spiritually] dead (Matthew 8:22) shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live (John 4:23 – Jesus was pointing His disciples from the Law of sin and death to grace and eternal Life through faith in their kinsman Redeemer with the promise of Spiritual resurrection or new birth for the saints from Pentecost to the Laodicea Church Age which closed in March, 1963, through His mediation in the office of Son of God for their ignorance of the fullness of the Word while the Bible was sealed). As the Father has eternal Life in Himself, so has He granted the Son to have eternal Life in Himself; and has given Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of man” in this holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of the Pentecostal feast following the revelation of the Seven Seals.

“Do not be astonished at this: for the hour is coming when all who are in the graves shall hear His voice, and come out; those who have done good to the resurrection of eternal Life; and those who have done evil to the resurrection of damnation.” (This is not the spiritual resurrection or new birth of the Church under His dispensations of Son of God and Son of man, but the second or general resurrection for the White Throne Judgment one thousand years later (Matthew 25:31-46; Revelation 20:7-15). “I can do nothing on My own authority: I judge as I hear, I judge and My judgment is just, because I seek not My own will, but the will of Him who sent me.”

You may think I am being pedantic but the “Voice of the Archangel” is Jesus Christ in you, placing the Message from Genesis to Revelation to bring you to maturity in the unity of the faith so you will be qualified to speak the Word for the ‘third pull’ in the manifestation of the Sons of God. As Peter turned the “[faith] keys of the Kingdom of heaven” to initiate the new birth for Israelites, Samaritans and Gentiles (Matthew 16:19, Acts 2:14-41; 8:14-17; 10:34-48), our Message is the fullness of the Word, which is “the keys of Hell and of Death,” so that when the last member of Christ’s end-time Bride has come in, there will be a resurrection of the sleeping saints who will appear to many in new Jerusalem, as they are reunited with precious Brethren and loved ones, while the living saints manifest that they are the Sons of God. These are waved as a two loaves baked with leaven, then translated (Romans 11:25; Revelation 1:18; Leviticus 23:15-21). As Christ’s end-time Bride we must recognize our position in the Word, otherwise we will not know our place in the Body and find ourselves impersonating the dispensations of Luther, Wesley, the Pentecostals, or the Word for some other day gone by (I John 1:7).

“The trumpet of God” will be Israel’s Seventh Trumpet (Revelation 11:15) signaling the end of the Gentile dispensation and calling Israel to a memorial of blowing of Trumpets, which will be the revelation of the Seven Trumpet mysteries preached by the Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11. There will be an earthquake as there was at the end of the dispensation of the Law, an earthquake more powerful than any since men were upon earth. “The dead in Christ shall rise first. Afterward we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air.” We meet one another before we meet Him; the saints from Pentecost to Laodicea will resurrect dispensation by dispensation, while we as a hunted and persecuted little group manifest that we are the Sons of God. This will not be a public demonstration, but the exercise of the ‘third pull’ for the provision of our necessities by the spoken Word that we may know the exceeding greatness the resurrection power which God wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and translated Him in heavenly places. The manifestation of the Sons of God is for the purpose of instilling faith for translation grace, for as God raised Christ by the operation of His own faith, we must apply the greatness of God’s resurrection power so that when one of the resurrected saints appears to us, that encounter will instantly supercharge our faith to change in the atoms without death into glorified flesh, and caught up together with our resurrected Brethren. Mothers and fathers will meet one another. Children and loved ones will meet, then we’ll be caught up to meet the Lord in the air.

God sent us a prophet in the same spirit as John the Baptist to introduce Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming. But how will churchgoers know him unless they are constantly in the Word to know what they should be looking for? Daniel said, “The wise shall understand.” So we must circumcise our hearts from the things of the world and separate from the world church system as the “Voice of the Archangel” confirms the spoken Word in the written Word (Revelation 18:1-4).

Naturally we would like to know when the earthquake that marks the close of the Gentile dispensation will take place? Political, economic, religious and social affairs moving at a quickening pace toward a climax and the fulfillment of Scriptures. According to the shadows and types of the Law the Gentile dispensation will end and the earthquake will take place one Nisan 14 very very soon.

Brother Branham said, “They’re going to find out someday that they’re not seeing a hundred and fifty million years of light space . . . they’re going right around in a circle. . . You’re going to find out one of these days that when you go to heaven, you don’t fly off somewhere else; you’re still right here, just in another dimension faster than this. Right through this room’s coming color. Every color shirt, dress, whatever you got on is eternal, laying right on records, going around and around the world. Every time you bat your eyes, it’s right on record. . . television will prove that. . . If Einstein had only had the spiritual application, as he had the physical application . . . he could’ve told us something. When I heard his message on that great center somewhere into the skies, that whoever contacted with that center, could create earths, do anything—the power would be unlimited” (Christ Revealed in His Own Word, p. 14:63, 67; Ephesians 1:17-20).
