The Tiara

 

October 19, 2010 — Last Sunday a new banner was lowered from the window of the papal Apostolic Palace on which was depicted a coat of arms in which the miter above the shield was replaced by the tiara.

The tiara is not a liturgical headdress, but rather a sign of sovereign power the Pope exercises in his dual capacity as supreme head of the Church and sovereign of the Papal States. The need to symbolize the unity of these two powers certainly influenced the evolution of the tiara. It is possible that the importance of the temporal power was the first motive of creating a crown so majestic, but today the specific symbolism of the tiara is the supreme position of the Pope over the universal Church, and this would remain intact even if the temporal power should once again cease entirely. . .

Comment: The triple crown signifies the pope’s dominion of heaven, earth and purgatory and one suspects Rome may be hinting at her soon-coming temporal dominion.


Thinking Straight about Israel, the Jews and the Archbishop

 

October 27, 2010 — The only storyline that’s had any traction in the American press [to the close of the October 10-24 Synod of Bishops for the Middle East] is Israeli and Jewish backlash to a comment by one synod participant in the closing press conference on Saturday.

Asked to clarify what this passage meant, Archbishop Bustros responded that Christians cannot speak of a specific “promised land,” because Jesus Christ had come to establish the Kingdom of God in the world and to make all who follow Him His “chosen ones.”

That means, Archbishop Bustros explained, that the idea of the “the promised land cannot be used as a base for the justification of the return of Jews to Israel and the displacement of Palestinians.” He added: “Sacred Scripture should not be used to justify the occupation by Israel of Palestine”. . .

Yes indeed, show Us all the Map!

 

October 16, 2010 — Better late than never, a senior Palestinian official in Ramallah, Yasser Abed Rabbo, found the right way to challenge Israel and the US. As reported by AFP on 13 October, he said, ‘We officially demand that the US administration and the Israeli government provide a map of the borders of the state of Israel which they want us to recognize.’

That’s a completely logical and totally reasonable demand.

IF Israel was interested in peace on terms virtually all Palestinians and most other Arabs and Muslims everywhere could accept, the map provided would show Israel with borders as they were on the eve of the 1967 war. An accompanying note would say that, subject to agreement in final negotiations, Israel seeks minor border adjustments here and there. The note would also propose that Jerusalem should be an open, undivided city and the capital of two states.

If such a map with the note as above was presented, it would open the door to peace.

But the implementation of such land-for-peace deal would require the IDF to confront and forcibly remove illegal Jewish settlers who refused to leave; and that would open the door to a Jewish civil war—the price Israel’s Jews would have to pay for 62 years of contempt for and defiance of international law.

Of course it won’t happen. . . why not was explained to me as far back as I980 by Shimon Peres. . . ‘Every day that passes sees new bricks on new settlements. Begin knows exactly what he’s doing. He’s stuffing the West Bank with settlers to create the conditions for a Jewish civil war. He knows that no Israeli prime minister is going down in history as the one who gave the order to the Jewish army to shoot Jews out of the West Bank’. . . ‘I’m not.’

When Peres spoke those words to me there were 70,000 illegal Jewish settlers on the occupied West Bank. If it was ‘too late’ then, in 1980, how much more too late is it today when the number of illegal Jewish settlers is in excess of 500,000 and rising on a daily basis? . .

So no, there won’t be a Jewish civil war because no Israeli prime minister is ever going to risk provoking it. So there will be no map. (I mean not one that could come even close to satisfying the Palestinian demand and need). Yasser Abed Rabbo knew that when he put the demand into words . . . Full story: veteranstoday.com

Comment: This is a further factor why the dividing of the mount of Olives resulting in the destruction of the Dome of the Rock will ignite the ‘hot stage’ of World War III.


The Map is on Their Money

 

10 shekel coinOctober 21, 2010 — The back of Israel’s 10 Shekel coin proudly displays their map of ‘Greater Israel.’ That is the Herzl/Zionist map of everything from the Nile River to the Tigris and Euphrates. Palestine/Israel is a small sliver on the left side of their Greater Israel. As most thinking people know and those who have a clear understanding of the Bible and theology, there is no historical basis whatsoever for the claim that they are entitled to everything between those two rivers as signified by the two blue bands either side of Rothschild’s occult family crest on Israel’s flag.

Comment: Not having their own currency the Palestinians must suffer this affront while the Western world conducts the hypocritical charade of ‘peace’ talks with Israel. And the apostate church is blind (Revelation 3:17-20).

British Prime Minister Lloyd George condemned the opponents of the Balfour Declaration for suggesting that the Zionist leaders were seeking to establish, “a Jewish oligarchy in Palestine that will reduce the Arab inhabitant to a condition of servitude to a favoured Hebrew minority”.

The World Zionist Association wrote to the League of Nations: “The Jews demand no privilege, unless it is the privilege of rebuilding by their own efforts and sacrifices a land which, once the seat of a thriving and productive civilization, has long been suffered to remain derelict. They expect no favoured treatment in the matter of political or religious rights. They assume, as a matter of course, that all the inhabitants of Palestine, be they Jews or non-Jews, will be in every respect on a footing of perfect equality. They seek no share in the Government beyond that to which they may be entitled under the Constitution as citizens of the country. They solicit no favours. They ask, in short, no more than an assured opportunity of peacefully building up their National Home by their own exertions and of succeeding on their merits” (David Lloyd George, Is It Peace? (1923) p. 246-253).

President Chaim Herzog of Israel, said the Arabs cannot be, “participants in any way in a land that has been consecrated to our people for thousands of years. To the Jews of this land there cannot be any partner” (Noam Chomsky, Letters From Lexington (1990) p. 3). This is the real historic reason why.

In his last speech to the Knesset on October 5, 1995, Yitzhak Rabin defied the Peres/Oslo “peace” process declaring, “We will not return to the 4 June 1967 lines . . . First and foremost, united Jerusalem . . . as the capital of Israel, under Israeli sovereignty. The security border of the State of Israel will be located in the Jordan Valley. . . The establishment of blocs of settlements in Judea and Samaria, like the one in Gush Katif.” Mordechai Vanunu speaks on Israel’s nuclear blackmail.


German Bid at Multi-cultural Society has failed: Merkel

 

October 16, 2010 — Germany’s attempts to create a multi-cultural society in which people from various cultural backgrounds live together peacefully have failed, Chancellor Angela Merkel said Saturday. “This approach has failed, totally”. . . Jewish leaders in Germany meanwhile warned that German society and democracy were under threat from extremists.

A recent expert study . . . by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation think tank, showed that more than one third (34.3 percent) of those surveyed believed Germany’s 16 million immigrants or people with foreign origins came to the country for the social benefits. Around the same number (35.6 percent) think Germany is being “over-run by foreigners” . . . The integration of Muslims has been a hot button issue since August when a member of Germany’s central bank sparked outrage by saying the country was being made “more stupid” by poorly educated and unproductive Muslim migrants with headscarves. . .

Watch the New Madrid Fault—’Fluid Displacement’

 

New Madrid FaultMay 6, 2010 — The Midwest United States along with its East Coast is at high risk to earthquakes due to unsettled fault zones, as a result of ‘Katrina’-like floods occurring in at least five states. Those areas at risk are Missouri, Iowa, Wisconsin, Indiana and Illinois. The Mississippi and other rivers across the upper Midwest have overrun their banks in recent days.

Note: ‘Fluid Displacement’ occurs in polarized ways. This is to say—when fluid is increased such as in the record-breaking floods along the Mississippi river, pressure in “added” to tectonic plates causing them to shift. When fluid is removed or decreased—such as tons of oil leaving Earth’s mantle due to a man-made bored hole, this reduces pressure on tectonic plates which also causing them to shift. (Images of weathered BP oil in bays near Southwest Pass, Louisiana, the main shipping channel of the Mississippi River. Toxicologist Riki Ott speaks on the BP oil spill and its long term effects).

The New Madrid Fault is prone to mega-quakes. Earthquakes so large, it caused the Mississippi to run backwards . . . that’s right, the largest river in the United States ran backwards. The New Madrid zone had four of the largest North American earthquakes in recorded history, with moment magnitudes estimated to be as large as 8.0, all occurring within a three-month period between December 1811 and February 1812.

Fluid (oil) gushing out not far from the mouth of the Mississippi, and record floods occurring up-river along longitude meridians, has geologists pouring over possible seismic outcomes. No one knows for sure how this will unfold. As one geologist said when asked what might happen: “We don’t know—it’s never happened before.” Full story: fourwinds10.com

Comment: Brother Branham prophesied, “Nations are breaking; the world is falling apart. Fifteen hundred mile chunk of it, three or four hundred miles wide, will sink hundred—or maybe forty miles down into that great fault out yonder one of these days, and waves will shoot plumb out to the state of Kentucky. And when it does, it’ll shake the world so hard that everything on top of it will shake down” (A Thinking Man’s Filter, p. 25:145. Newsletter #212).


Earth Changes Media has moved Studio and Family [from Seattle] to Texas

 

Cascadia Subduction ZoneSeptember 13 2010 — The US Northwest is known for its earthquake and volcano history. It is my belief the Northwest is in the cyclical period of very active earth changes activity. Scientific data suggests the Cascadia Subduction Zone is due (some have said over-due) to erupt. When this occurs, it is most likely to produce an earthquake of 9.0 mag. or larger. As a result of such intense activity, I speculate it will have a triggering effect lighting up two or more volcanoes along what is known as the Cascade Range which houses some 24 volcanoes.

Here is a list of the Cascade Range Volcanoes in alphabetical order. The ones in bold and most likely to have an eruption: Mount Adams, Mount Bachelor, Mount Bailey, Mount Baker, Battle Ground Lake, Beacon Rock, Belknap Shield Volcano, Boring Lava Field, Broken Top, Crater Lake, Diamond Peak, Glacier Peak, Mount Hood, Mount Jefferson, Lassen Peak, Lava Butte, Mount McLoughlin, Medicine Lake, Newberry, Pilot Butte, Mount Rainier, Mount St. Helens, Mount Shasta, Three-Fingered Jack, Three Sisters, Mount Thielsen, Mount Washington. . . Full story: fourwinds10.com

Cascadia Subduction ZoneComment: At the Cascadia subduction zone, an oceanic tectonic plate called the Juan de Fuca is pulled and driven (subducted) beneath the continental North American plate, setting up conditions for undersea “megathrust” earthquakes.

TsunamiTsunami are sometimes called tidal waves. They are more like tidal surges, and they soar upon reaching land. Tsunamis are the result of sudden rises or falls in a section of the earth’s crust under or near the ocean, usually caused by earthquakes, volcanic activity or landslides. Earthquakes at subduction zones (rather than at other types of faults such as thrust faults) produce the highest energy tsunamis, especially when they occur in deep water. The seismic activity displaces sea water, creating a rise or fall in the level of the ocean above. This rise or fall in sea level initiates the formation of a tsunami wave. The wave’s height increases in shallower water and can grow to 65 feet and more. “In the case of the Cascadia Subduction Zone, you could have an area of ocean floor that’s 50 miles wide and 500 to 600 miles long suddenly snap back, causing a huge tsunami,” Goldfinger said. “At the same time, we could expect some parts of the upper, or North American, plate to sink one to two meters. These are massive tectonic events. Subduction zones produce the most powerful earthquakes and tsunamis in the world.”

Comment: Brother Branham said, “Sea roaring, big tidal waves washing away parts of cities and breaking upon the shores, just before the coming” (Pillar of Fire, #53-0509).


Veteran Suicides Outnumber US Military Deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan

 

October 22 2010 — More than 1,000 veterans in California under 35 died after returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan between 2005 and 2008—three times as many California service members as were killed in conflict overseas, according to a recently published Bay Citizen report.

Investigative journalist Aaron Glantz studied the cases of Reuben Paul Santos, Alex Lowenstein and Elijah Warren to shed light on a growing trend among Afghanistan and Iraq veterans who have died through high-risk behavior and suicide after being discharged. In particular, veterans who returned home to California died through motorcycle and motor vehicle accidents and unintentional poisoning; in addition, veterans were two and a half times as likely to commit suicide as Californians of the same age who had not served in the military. . .

President Obama falls Victim of Foreclosure Fraud?—Robo Signer

 

Foreclosure-Gate crisis has nothing to do with the “deadbeat” borrowers, it never has. It has to do with the complete lack of the respect of the law by the banking industry. They got away with it up until now and are trying their damnedest to paper over their crimes. It is time to say no more. . .

They tricked all of us, even you Mr. President, and completely disregarded the basic laws of this country to make a buck. Full story: itulip.com 4closurefraud.org Big banks on the brink of bankruptcy. Comment: Follow the thread . . .


October 27 is Climate Fools Day

 

October 25, 2010 — The Carbon Sense Coalition today called on Australians and Americans to join the world in celebrating Climate Fools Day on October 27th.

“As the first October snow in 70 years blanketed Westminster (and a big swathe of Europe), MP’s droned on about the need to fight global warming. . .”

“The weather gods were the first to draw attention to the stupidity of the Climate Fools in Westminster. Weeks of icy weather froze the whole of Britain, wind turbines froze, solar panels were covered in snow, but coal, gas and nuclear power stations running at full power 24/7 averted calamity. Power lines broke, stopping electric trains—on one line in Scotland the only train running was an old steam train burning coal.”

“And ignoring the consensus predictions of global warming, a Snowy Owl, native of the Arctic Circle, arrived in Cornwall in December 2009, heralding another cold winter in which the sea froze on the Dorset coast. . .

Comment: ‘Global warming’ has brought snow to Australia in mid-Spring. And here’s the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland, since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past FIVE YEARS to control CO2 emissions on our planet—all of you. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing this crud at any one time—EVERY DAY. Is Iceland buying carbon offsets?

Of course you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress—it’s that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.

Virginity – Part II

 

Matthew 25:1, “The kingdom of heaven is likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps and went forth to meet the Bridegroom”.

Song of Songs 2:1-2, “I Am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.” Metaphorically, Christ is the white and violet coloured meadow-saffron with a pungent bulb that grows in Sharon (5:10), the lowland between mount Tabor and the fresh water Sea of Galilee, which is the second-lowest lake in the world. The lily is Christ’s Bride in her rural simplicity—it delights in the valleys and grows among the thorns—beauty, delicacy, and lowliness are in her as they were in Him (II Corinthians 8:9). “As the lily among thorns, so is My Beloved among the [non-elect] daughters” who are as thorns in comparison. By the law of contrast the Light of Christ shines most brightly amidst the thorns of this world.

How strange is God’s husbandry! Instead of taking the lily into a conservatory, He leaves it out among the thorns which equate to the wicked (Genesis 6:1-4; II Samuel 23:6; Matthew 13:22; Hebrews 6:8). Like Jesus, His Bride is made a little lower than her theophany in order that in full bloom she might be proven to overcome the world and the things of the world by His Spirit and display the glory of His character. The same soil from which one nature can only extract the harsh astringent blackthorn with its cruel spines yields to another flexile leaves and balmy blossoms. So the Life of faith is not lived in the convent or in the sanctuary alone, but out of doors in the unsympathizing world, in the midst of secular men. From the same soil and atmosphere whence others derive repulsive attributes, the elect grow in grace and give forth excellence as their “Seed is the Word of God” (Luke 8:11; Matthew 7:15-20; 13:24). The same sunshine which elicits the balm of the lily matures in the blackthorn its verjuice; the same shower which makes thistles rank fills the lily cup with nectar, and clothes it in raiment eclipsing Solomon (Matthew 5:45).

The Spirit of God in Solomon is comparing the grace of chastity in Christ’s Bride to the lily on account of its purity and fragrance, and sweetness and joyousness. For chastity is like a spring flower, always softly exhaling immortality from its white petals. Therefore Christ is not ashamed to confess that He loves the beauty of its highest quality of character: “You have ravished My heart, My sister, My spouse; you have stolen My heart with one adoring glance [recognizing the Word in mutual love at “the first or second admonition . . . for the eye is the light of the body” (John 10:1-5; Titus 3:9-11; Matthew 24:24; 6:22)]. . . How sweet is your love, My sister, My spouse! how much more delicious is your love than mere wine! and the fragrance of your anointing than all the richest spices! [How sweetly you speak], the words of your lips distil nectar, O Bride; honey and milk are under your tongue, the scent of your garments is like the fragrance of mount Lebanon. A garden enclosed is My sister, My spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed”.

The garden and the spring being locked and sealed naturally indicates access is open only to the owner and possessor Himself. Shulamith designates her hidden charms first as her own garden, then as Solomon’s: “Come, O north wind, awaken; come, south wind, blow upon my garden, let its fragrance be wafted abroad. Let my Beloved come into His garden, and eat its choicest fruits; they are His.” In Proverbs 5:15-18 the figure of a spring is likewise applied to the natural relation between a wife and her wedded lord, so that she is represented as a fountain absolutely inaccessible to all men except her husband, and the right is his freely to enjoy and refresh himself with this spring is presupposed.

Christ proclaims these praises to those who become wise virgins to His Word, His spouse, the members of His Bride called by His Name—not Jehovah, Allah or Buddha—but LORD JESUS CHRIST (Philippians 2:9; I John 2:22). Moreover, we are undefiled by the traditions and intellectual reasonings of men, as a garden sealed in which all the odours of the fragrance of heaven are grown, that Christ alone may come and gather them, blooming with incorporeal seeds of faith in the Word of the hour. The Logos loves none of the things of this world, because His nature cannot be satisfied with the beauty of corruptible flesh, human personality or intellect; He sees the glorified form of His elect and delights in the beauty of the soul at one with His Word (Amos 3:3; John 17:20-26).

a human beingHebrews 4:12, “The Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Since we now have the perfect interpretation of the Word, we must apply that Sword to diagnose our human condition by distinguishing the five senses of our body: see, feel, hear, taste and smell, from the five senses of our mortal spirit: memory, conscience, imagination, reasoning and affection, which are given to contact the world, and from the single sense of the soul: faith or doubt, and prescribe its cure. Since the Fall we are each born in sin, conceived in iniquity and come into the world speaking lies because Adam took Eve back to himself, forfeiting his dominion to Satan, who is the god of this evil age. As we are born through lust and his imparted knowledge rather than faith in God’s Word we bear the nature of this world, and until the foolishness of preaching plants and waters the Seed of God’s Word in our soul, quickening us to invisible union, we will be subject to the worldly propensities of our ten carnal senses. Do you see why “the carnal mind is enmity against God? It does not [and without faith] cannot submit to God’s law; so those who are in the flesh cannot please God” (Romans 8:7-8; Hebrews 11:6)?

When you are born-again by a clear understanding of the present Truth revealing your place in the Word, the Holy Spirit kills that worldly nature or de facto former husband of your soul and unites you with your predestinated Husband, Christ the Word. However, you are a Spirit babe and must mature in the faith “until you are no longer a child, tossed to and fro, and carried by every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, but grow up into the unity of the faith, and the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:13-16).

This entails bringing the mortal spirit of your mind that governs your body into submission under Christ the new Husband of your soul. But old habits die hard, and the newborn Christian who does not apply the Sword of the Word to his life will stubbornly contend by intellectual reasoning, affection, memory and imagination against the revealed Word confirmed through six thousand years of Scripture and human history to serve the desires of his unregenerate flesh. Paul describes the conflict between flesh and mortal spirit and the soul (Romans 7; 8:12-13; I Peter 4:1-6).

Your flesh and mortal spirit will rebel, insisting your pastor lacks love, joy, peace, patience, or gentleness. Yet Jesus twice overturned the tables of the banksters (John 2:15), and cursed the fig tree which represented the unbelieving nation of Israel (Matthew 21:18), and coldly said, “You will always have the poor with you” (Matthew 26:11). The natural mind will ask, Is that the fruit of the Spirit? Where is temperance, patience and charity? But Jesus spoke only what He heard from the Father, and did only what was shown by vision (John 3:32; 8:28-29).

I Corinthians 2:12-16, “Now we have received, not the spirit of [our old husband] the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us by God. The revelation of which we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Ghost teaches; comparing Spiritual things with Spiritual. But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are Spiritually discerned. But he who is Spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ”.

That old husband is dead. Don’t dig Him up by reviving your submission to him. Stop flirting with the world and bring your body and spirit subject to your Husband, the Word. Why would you want to take the easy path of worldly popularity as a “man pleaser” to sinners when you are commanded to “show yourself approved of God, by rightly dividing the Word”? Take the Sword of the Spirit in the strong hand of faith and excise that besetting sin by which you are serving your flesh and mortal spirit to please men when you are commanded to be separated to your Husband! “For what part has Christ with Belial? or what part has he who believes with an infidel” (II Corinthians 6:15)?

Cease compromising your virginity by trying to have one foot in the world, and one in the Word? “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. . . Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double minded” (James 1:8; 4:8).

As the natural types the Spiritual the spirit of physical fornication is the very same spirit that lies in organized religion, which is idolatry, and all fornicators will have their place in the lake of Fire. “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, My soul shall have no pleasure in him. The mere association of kindhearted people with the true believer might well bring death in return for their kindness” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 116:1). Why? Because like Esau their continual rejection of Christ the Word will bring them to that place of no more repentance. Revelation 18:3, “All nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.” Many of these are sleeping virgin who love the Lord, but being carnal are in fornication with the world.

Your mind is the womb of the spirit. If you yield your virginity out of wedlock by unfaithfulness to God’s unchanging Word to serve your worldly senses in either the natural or the spiritual you will perish with the world. By desensitizing your soul to the Word and will of God you confirm Satan as your de facto husband and master spiritually speaking; like Eve you have cast aside innocence to receive carnal knowledge of good and evil. Those who abstain unto holy wedlock preserve their chastity evermore, “for two, said He, shall be one flesh” (I Corinthians 6:16).

The natural types the Spiritual, for our heavenly Bridegroom cannot marry our bodies, but is wooing our souls for holy union as virgins to His Word, and every one (Matthew 4:4). God’s eternal mystery manifest in Jesus Christ is revealed to His Body as Christ made love to His Bride, whispering His secrets through Seven Church Ages—just to His Wife, not to the denominational flirters (Ephesians 1:3-14). “Come OUT of her, My people, lest you partake of her sins and share in her plagues.

II Corinthians 11:1-4, “I am jealous over you with godly jealousy, for I have espoused you to one Husband, that I may present you a chaste virgin to Christ. Yet I fear lest your virginity [in the revealed Word] should be corrupted by Satan’s subtlety.” I have led you beside still waters and caused you to lie down in green pastures, yet you want to trespass into Satan’s spiritual desert of denominational reasoning! “I fear, lest as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ [through foolish questions, genealogies, contentions, and strivings about the Law, which are unprofitable and vain]. For if someone comes preaching another Jesus [whom they insist is not the Christ], one whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the One you received, or a gospel other than what you accepted, you readily submit to it”.

Under the Old Covenant, which was a shadow of the New, a man who was suspicious of his wife but unable to produce witnesses or other evidence of her guilt would submit her to the ordeal of jealousy (Numbers 5:11-31). She was brought before the priest who wrote an imprecation on a tablet and washed the words into a vial or bowl of water, which the woman was made to drink and so become one with the curse. If she was undefiled she would remain fertile, but if she were guilty she would suffer the fatal effect of the curse. The Seven Vials of Revelation 16 are the antitype of the ordeal of jealousy which the non-elect church was made to endure at the conclusion of each Church Age to distinguish the foolish virgins from the adulterous false church. Brother Branham called this a temporary or investigation judgment. Virginity and chastity equate with cleanliness, sanctification and holiness, without which no man shall see God.

There is nothing new under the sun. History is not coincidental and haphazard but pre-planned and episodic. By way of illustration, World Wars I, II and III were planned in 1871 by the group that will be co-rulers of Lucifer’s totalitarian one world government, and they rule our governments. The invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were planned years in advance of 9/11. And the destruction of the predominantly white Christian peoples by multiculturalism which is a repetition of the original sin Jesus Christ foretold in Matthew 24:37 (Genesis 6:1-4), was announced by Rabbi Emanuel Rabinovich before a special meeting of the Emergency Council of European Rabbis in Budapest on January 12, 1952 concerning progress towards their NWO. “. . . We will openly reveal our identity with the races of Asia and Africa. I can state with assurance that the last generation of white children is now being born. Our Control Commissions will, in the interests of peace and wiping out inter-racial tensions, forbid the whites to mate with whites. The white women must cohabit with members of the dark races, the white men with black women. Thus the white race will disappear, for mixing the dark with the white means the end of the white man, and our most dangerous enemy will become only a memory . . .”

Goyim are defenseless against this ongoing iniquity since governments worldwide have enacted racial hatred legislation that would criminalize not just physical acts of racial violence but indict anyone who made public statements that might cause offence to any minority such as homosexuals as a group, or the criminals executing this plan. This Machiavellian legislation in which truth is no defense was crafted by San Francisco lawyer Joseph Ribakoff for a competition sponsored by the ADL of B’nai B’rith. (He was subsequently suspended for misappropriating client funds). The selected politicians in our Hegelian sham democracies clearly represent the will of a faceless power far above “we the people” and the thesis proposes that not only must hate-motivated violence be banned, but also any words which stimulate: suspicion; friction; hate; and possible violence must also be criminalized and films censored (LJC93.doc; LJC93a.doc).

Adam was a spoken Word of God and could not be deceived on the revealed of God. Woman is a byproduct taken from his side years after creation was completed. She was not the Word, and is designed so she can deceive and be deceived. Webster’s 1928 dictionary explains that the word ‘woman’ is a combination of the words, ‘womb’ and ‘man.’ Woman therefore means ‘womb man’ (the ‘b’ in womb being conspicuously silent) or ‘man with a womb.’ When God formed Eve, he put within her a womb, and although the life comes from the man only his ‘wombman’ can bring life into the world and fulfill the primordial commandment of Genesis 1:28.

Brother Branham said, “Marriage is the oldest institution in the world. Marriage was performed first, and instituted in the garden of Eden. A woman is entrusted with certain characters that she must not defile. A woman is trusted to that. There’s not a creature on the earth like a woman. There’s no female dog; there’s no female of any kind entrusted with a character that a woman is. A woman was not even in the beginning of the creation, because God knowed that she would fall. All other females could not commit adultery. She’s the only one that can commit adultery. If she’d been made like the original, that would’ve been discomplementary to God’s great wisdom. See, she was made a byproduct of a man; but because she was cast over in that side, she has also been given a sacred charge from God for redemption. (Isaiah 7:14; I Timothy 2:13-15).

She’s got characters that she must not defile. If she would mar them, she’s defiled for lifetime. No matter how much she’s forgiven, she can’t be justified. I’ll strike that in a little bit. Got a Scripture on that in a few minutes. She can be forgiven for her defilement, but she cannot be justified in this life. It’s always with her. Notice, now, she’s been given this. She may be forgiven but not justified.

Her body is given to her a sacred trust from God. No female dog, no bird, no other animal, no other creature like that; no. She’s the only one. By it she is the reason it’s so sacred, she is to bring forth life into the earth. Her body is a bedding grounds of life. Therefore, that’s the reason she’s give this sacred trust” (The Invisible Union of the Bride of Christ, p. 12:5 – 13:1).

Throughout the animal kingdom the male is generally beautiful while the female is plain, but in the human race it is the woman who is beautiful while the man is plain. And whereas most female animals have relations only for reproduction, with woman it is for pleasure, and practically any time she desires. Since she is not original creation she is made so she can deceive and be deceived, and the educated modern miss is certainly deceived.

Satan’s three temptations are, the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life. Eve was beguiled by all three, and ministers of the Gospel are transformed from angels of Light to fallen angels by the same temptations in the form of money, women, and popularity. But when Jesus was tempted He parried with the Sword of the Spirit. The worldly modern miss thinks she is “cool” when she is in fact deceived by a Luciferian scheme planned over 200 years ago.

In Proofs of a Conspiracy (1798),” John Robinson A.M., Professor of Natural Philosophy, and Secretary to the Royal Society of Edinburgh revealed the Illuminati conspiracy against all of the religions and governments of Europe. Their plans called for the liberation of women: “There is no way of influencing men so powerfully as by means of the women. These should therefore be our chief study; we should insinuate ourselves into their good opinion, give them hints of emancipation from the tyranny of public opinion and of standing up for themselves; it will be an immense relief to their enslaved minds to be freed from any one bond of restraint, and it will fire them more, and cause them to work for us with zeal, without knowing that they do so; for they will only be indulging their own desire of personal admiration”.

In terms of destroying morality the Illuminati’s plan stated: “Nothing tends so much to knit all the ties of society as the endearing connections of family, and whatever tends to lessen our veneration for the marriage contract, weakens them in the most effectual manner: Purity of manners is its most effectual support, and pure thoughts are the only sources from which pure manners can flow. I readily grant that this veneration for personal purity was carried to an extravagant height, and that several very ridiculous fancies and customs arose from this. Romantic love, and chivalry, are strong instances of the strange vagaries of our imagination, when carried along by this enthusiastic admiration of female purity; and so unnatural and forced, that they could only be temporary fashions. But I believe that, with all their ridicule, it would be a happy nation where this was the general creed and practice. Nor can I help thinking a nation on its decline, when the domestic connections cease to be venerated; and the illegitimate offspring of a nabob or a nobleman are received with ease into good company. Nothing is more clear than that the design of the Illuminati was to abolish Christianity—and we now see how effectual this would be for the corruption of the fair sex, a purpose which they eagerly wished to gain, that they might corrupt the men. But if the women would retain the rank they now hold, they will be careful to preserve in full force on their minds this religion so congenial to their dispositions, which nature has made affectionate and kind.” (Rabbi Emanuel Rabinovich and his co-conspirators announced the activation of this plan in 1952).

Robinson includes a letter from Illuminist Count Ludwig Savioli (code name Brutus) stating: “The Order must possess the power of life and death in consequence of our Oath . . . by the same right that any government in the world possesses it: For the Order comes in their place, making them unnecessary [the hope of Judaeo-Communism]. This power of life and death included abortion, as Robinson wrote that in the handwriting of Franz Zwack (Weishaupt’s closest confidant, and code name Cato) was ‘description of a strong box, which, if forced open, shall blow up and destroy its contents—Several receipts for procuring abortion—A composition which blinds or kills when spurted in the face . . . A method for filling a bed-chamber with pestilential vapours . . .” Regarding abortion, Weishaupt wrote to confidant Jakob Hertel (code name Marius) in September 1783 that Weishaupt and his sister-in-law “have tried every method in our power to destroy the child” in her womb.

We live in the most glorious time of the world, yet this is the most deceitful age. Jesus questioned if in the time of His ‘parousia’ Coming, He would find faith on earth and prophesied “there will arise false Christs; [not false Jesus’, no one would fall for that, but false anointed ones], and false prophets showing great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they would deceive the very elect” (Luke 18:8; Matthew 24:24). “Ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth. [Thy Word is Truth]. And as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the Truth: men of corrupt minds reprobate concerning the faith. But [given the Word test] they can proceed no further: for their folly is manifest to all men, like the impersonators of Moses” (II Timothy 3:7-9).

Where is virginity today? It belongs to few women; and few men in the Church possess a holy integrity even of their own body. Other members, however, preserve virginity, not in body, but in their born-again soul, which rules the spirit of their mind to virginal stability and holiness in thought and expression and over the actions of the flesh. Christians are virgins to the Logos of Jesus Christ by faith, not virgins to the rhema by scholarship but virgins in the unwavering faith of a pure conscience, unwavering hope in preparation for the ‘third full’ and sincere charity with the Token of the Life of Christ on display. This is the virginity which Paul, who was jealous for the Bridegroom, feared might be corrupted by the subtlety of the Serpent and his spiritual seed. Just as the bodily member is marred in a certain part, so the seduction of an undisciplined wandering mind, a loose unruly tongue defiles the virginity of the soul and leaves innocent non-elect without anchor in Christ or compass to the well-trodden path to where righteousness is preached. Let those who are not virgins in the flesh make their calling and election sure, so to preserve the virginity of their soul.

Psalm 45 is mentioned in Hebrews 1:8-9, “To the Son God said, Your throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of Your kingdom. You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even Your God has anointed You with the oil of gladness above your fellow heirs [in My promise to Abraham]” (Romans 8:17; Galatians 3:14; Hebrews 6:13-20). This speaks of the two-thousand year marriage ceremony of the Lamb to the members of His Bride. The King in all His glory and happiness is the special object of praise at the invisible union to His Gentile princess, who is counseled, “incline your ear” and come under subjection to your Husband; “forget [the world and the things of the world], also your fellow countrymen and your father’s house . . . the king’s daughter is all glorious within her chamber, her clothing is woven with gold,” signifying deity, for she is dressed in His righteousness, which is THUS SAITH THE LORD by Brother Branham’s “true sayings of God” (Revelation 19:7-9; 22:10-21).

He is calling the wise virgin, whose names were placed in the Lamb’s Book of Life from the foundation of the world; the Bible holds that mystery, and the Bible is unfolding it now—not each one’s name, but the mystery of the present Truth—what Jesus is doing now. When you recognize the Word for your day and answer the call, you know that your name is written therein. The foolish virgin also hear the Bridegroom’s call; they come out of darkness, practice righteousness and strive against sin, but being slothful and dilatory in “searching the Scripture daily to prove whether those things were so,” they fail to see the Logos and find a place in the Body.

The Bride is reckoned perfect and chosen beyond these whom she surpasses in the beauty of virginity, therefore she is blessed by all and will one day be worshipped by all, because she saw and freely heard what they desired to see, even for a little time, and saw not, and to hear, but heard not. “Blessed,” said our Lord, “are your eyes, for they see; and your ears, for they hear. For verily I tell you, That many prophets have desired to see those things which you see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which you hear, and have not heard them.” The Church is blessed and admired because it is found worthy to participate in those things which they did not attain to hear or see. For “there are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines, and harem virgins without number. My Dove, My undefiled, is the nonpareil; the darling of her mother, flawless to she who bore her. The daughters of Jerusalem saw her, and blessed her; the queens and the concubines, also, and they praised her” (Songs 6:8-9).

Can anyone doubt this virgin Bride is the undefiled flesh of the Lord, for whose sake the Lamb left His Father and New Jerusalem, the mother of us all, and came down to cleave as one flesh (Genesis 2:24)? Therefore He calls us a Dove, we are tame and domestic, and readily identify with the nature of the Lamb. She alone was found spotless and undefiled, and excelling all in the glory and beauty of righteousness, so that none of those who had pleased God most perfectly could stand near to her in a comparison of virtue, she was thought worthy to become joint-heir of the kingdom of the Only begotten, being at one with Him. She is His undefiled and blessed flesh, which the Word Himself will carry into the heavens and present at the right hand of God, dressed in the beauty of holiness, woven of various virtues, such as chastity, prudence, faith, love, patience and other good things, in wrought with gold which cover and adorn the unseemliness of the flesh with immortality.

Virginity – Part I

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 656

“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 around God’s unchanging Word.

The Iranian authority canceled its meeting scheduled for last Thursday with Attorney Nasser Sarbazi and Brother Youcef Nadarkhani imprisoned in Rasht—an incentive to prayer as you uphold him and Pastor Behrouz Sadegh-Khandjan (in Shiraz prison) and other persecuted and incarcerated Iranian saints. In the exercise of your faith, sign please this petition, and email or Fax the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic, His Excellency Ayatollah Sayed Ali Khamenei, + 98 21 774 2228; His Excellency the President Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Fax: + 98 21 649 5880, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, His Excellency Mr. Manouchehr Mottaki, Fax: + 98 21 390 1999, requesting the release and remission of all charges against Pastors Youcef Nadarkhani and Behrouz Sadegh-Khandjan, other Christians and prisoners of conscience in Iran.

Remember, “We are not contending against flesh and blood opponents, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places”.

Do you realize the recalcitrant pugilistic government of the USSA with its decades-long history of aggression against Iran in behalf of the “City of London” has to this day made no attempt to “mend fences” and establish diplomatic relations, but continues to invoke the demonic plans for World War III between political Zion fighting with Yankee blood and taxes and political Islam, in order to neutralize the strength of both in the setting up of Lucifer’s totalitarian one world government? So an unrepentant apostate USSA communicates via Pakistan’s consular offices! Shame on occupied USSA, the epithet, “Great Satan” accorded by Iranian leader Ayatollah Khomeini is justified according to the condemnation of our Lord Jesus Christ in Revelation 13:1-18 and 18:21-24, and by His Prophet William Branham, who said of America, “It’s a million miles from being a Christian country. I don’t even pray for it. How can I pray for it, and it won’t repent under the mighty powers of God demonstrated before it, and denying, and closing the doors to it, and walking away? I commit it to God. And she’s going further away, and now she’s going to sink. Just watch what happens” (Trying to do God a Service without it being His Will, p. 23:136).

In our main article this week we consider the subject of virginity.

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.

Sephardi Leader Yosef: Non-Jews exist to serve Jews

Sephardi Chief Rabbi Ovadia YosefJerusalem, October 18, 2010 — Israeli Sephardic leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef in his weekly Saturday night sermon said that non-Jews exist to serve Jews.
“Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world; only to serve the People of Israel,” he said during a public discussion of what kind of work non-Jews are allowed to perform on Shabbat.
“Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat,” he said to some laughter.
Yosef, the spiritual leader of the Shas Party and the former chief Sephardi rabbi of Israel, also said that the lives of non-Jews are protected in order to prevent financial loss to Jews.

“With gentiles, it will be like any person: They need to die, but God will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money. This is his servant. That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew,” said the rabbi, who recently turned 90. Full story: jta.org

Comment: The people of Israel are certainly ‘Jews,’ but the Rabbi is a student of the Babylonian Talmud which otherwise teaches precisely what he preached. Be sure to read about Brother Joe Cortina’s visit to Israel and Palestine in 1989.


Bill Gates says Vaccines can help reduce World Population

October 01, 2010 — Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates, who has donated hundreds of millions of dollars to new vaccine efforts, speaks on the issue of CO2 emissions and its effects on climate change. . . Then he adds . . . “The world today has 6.8 billion people… that’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent”. . .

Clearly, this statement implies that vaccines are a method of population reduction. . . Bill Gates seems to be saying that one of the primary purposes is to reduce the global population as a mechanism by which we can reduce CO2 emissions. Once again, watch the video yourself to hear him say it in his own words: naturalnews.tv. . .

Perhaps not coincidentally, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has funneled hundreds of millions of dollars into vaccine programs targeting people all over the world. One such program is researching the development of “sweat-triggered vaccines” that could use specially-coated nano-materials to deliver vaccines to people without using injections. [Could the masses be innoculated on hot, humid summer days by distributing the vaccine as nanoparticles in chemtrails]? . . . his foundation has also invested millions in sterilization technologies that have been called a “temporary castration“. . .

Comment: Protocol 10:18-19 “It is indispensable to trouble in all countries the people’s relations with their governments so as to utterly exhaust humanity with dissension, hatred, struggle, envy and even by the use of torture, by starvation, by the inoculation of diseases, by want, so that the “Goyim” see no other issue than to take refuge in our complete sovereignty in money and in all else”.

A radical new health law prototype designed by the WHO gives the South Australian government total control of the health system. Embedded in the Bill were clauses giving the government legal control over the treatment of ALL medical conditions—even obesity, chronic illness and non infectious diseases. yahoo.com.


Three Sides of the Same Figure: Blackwater, Monsanto, and Gates

October
14, 2010 —
A report by Jeremy Scahill in The Nation (Blackwater’s Black Ops, 9/15/2010) revealed that the largest mercenary army in the world, Blackwater (now called Xe Services) clandestine intelligence services was sold to the multinational Monsanto. . . Almost simultaneously with the publication of this article in The Nation, the Via Campesina [International Peasant Movement] reported the purchase of 500,000 shares of Monsanto, for more than $23 million by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which with this action completed the outing of the mask of “philanthropy.” Another association that is not surprising.

It is a marriage between the two most brutal monopolies in the history of industrialism: Bill Gates controls more than 90 percent of the market share of proprietary computing and Monsanto about 90 percent of the global transgenic seed market and most global commercial seed. There does not exist in any other industrial sector monopolies so vast, whose very existence is a negation of the vaunted principle of “market competition” of capitalism. Both Gates and Monsanto are very aggressive in defending their ill-gotten monopolies. . . their “donations” finance projects as destructive as geoengineering or replacement of natural community medicines for high-tech patented medicines in the poorest areas of the world. What a coincidence, former Secretary of Health Julio Frenk and Ernesto Zedillo are advisers of the Foundation.

Like Monsanto, Gates is also engaged in trying to destroy rural farming worldwide, mainly through the “Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa” (AGRA). It works as a Trojan horse to deprive poor African farmers of their traditional seeds, replacing them with the seeds of their companies first, finally by genetically modified (GM). To this end, the Foundation hired Robert Horsch in 2006, the director of Monsanto. Now Gates, airing major profits, went straight to the source. . . Full story: noonehastodietomorrow.com


The Road to World War III: Global Banking Cartel has One Card left to Play

September 26, 2010 — [T]he IMF and global banking cartel are setting the conditions for social unrest and pushing for policies that will provoke it, and the Pentagon is preparing for a military response. As scary and unbelievable as all this may sound, we are on a fast track to this scenario.

The American and global economy have already been looted and destroyed beyond repair. Most serious economists will admit that governments have already exhausted their capital by bailing out the banks and taking on unprecedented amounts of debt. The bailouts and recent return to high profits were just the final phase of the looting and a further consolidation of wealth on an unprecedented scale. There are still tens of trillions of dollars in debt hidden off-the-books and hundreds of trillions of dollars in dark pools of derivative liability. As the downturn continues, there is nothing left to revive the economy, the reserves and safety nets have already been stretched to their limits.

We have a political and economic system that has been overrun by organized corruption and theft. Along with a mass media system that does not inform the populace and has effectively marginalized and isolated the majority of the population. Meanwhile, bubbling just under the surface is a very heavily armed population with a militia movement that has doubled in size over the past year, and their memberships continue to rapidly grow. Without the necessary general political intelligence or infrastructure to organize an effective mass non-violent movement, we are steamrolling toward spontaneous riots and outbursts of armed insurrection.

. . . As time passes, these forgotten and isolated people, tens of millions of them, are quickly running out of options, and they will act out just as exploited people throughout the world always have. . . How will they maintain their power over an increasingly radicalized and hostile US population? The tactics of their divide and conquer strategy are already on full display. Their mainstream media outlets have drastically increased coverage and focused attention on the rhetoric of division—using divisive issues like immigration, racism, religious bigotry, [the climate change, carbon tax HOAX, BP Gulf oil spill], the ‘lazy unemployed,’ ‘entitlement welfare’ and gay marriage to divide and distract the population and prevent the masses from organizing against their true oppressors. . . the classic strategy of an endangered oligarchy is to divert discontent among the population into nationalistic militarism.

An increased external threat will lead to an increased internal crackdown, which creates the pretext and conditions for a police state. As we have already seen in the first phase of the crackdown on civil liberties since the ‘War on Terror’ began. . . the global banking cartel are not going to blame themselves, so they will deflect blame to China, a most convenient target.

China’s rise in power, mixed with the decline of western economies and the need for an external scapegoat sets up a global collision and inevitable confrontation between vying superpowers. Currency and trade wars will likely be a prelude to military confrontation. . . Full story: pubrecord.org

Comment: Looming losses from ForeclosureGate qualify as the sort of systemic risk warranting the breakup of the too-big-to-fail banks under the new financial reform bill. . . Sixty-two million mortgages are now held in the name of MERS, a ploy that the banks have realized won’t work; so Plan B has been to try to fabricate documents assigning the properties to the investment trusts after the fact. . . Interestingly, it wasn’t just one bank engaging in this pattern of cover-up and fraud, but many banks, suggesting the sort of “organized crime” that would qualify under the RICO statute. . . If the trusts violate the tax laws, the banks setting them up will owe millions of dollars in back taxes. Whether the banks are out the real estate or the taxes, they could well be looking at insolvency, posing the sort of serious, systemic risk that would bring them under the purview of the new Financial Stability Oversight Council (truth-out.org).


Federal Reserve is selling Paper Gold and buying Physical Gold

October 4, 2010 — A couple of weeks ago, I pitched an idea to some associates of mine who are involved in SERIOUS [tonnage] PRECIOUS METALS procurement—physical metal only—let’s just say HUGE money. I asked them if they would be interested in purchasing an ‘option’—cash up front—for the exclusive rights [first right of refusal on off-take] of a gold producer [miner] for a set number of ounces for 3—5 years “at the market”—using LBMA pricing [a.m./p.m. fixes] in the future. The answer I got back from my associates was “show us a terms sheet, we definitely have interest.”

So, I spoke to a friend who is very close to an intermediate producer who is in the mode of raising money right now. I had them ask the producer if they would have interest—the producer said, “YES, we are interested—but just to let you know—J.P. Morgan has been asking us if we would sell them the same option”. . .

The shorts of “paper gold” at J.P. Morgan [the Fed in drag] are selling the daylights out of the paper market and simultaneously buying exclusive rights to producers’ future production so they can try to fudge their way through an unmitigated fraud and settle a big enough chunk of their bad bets to keep this “systemically ruinous” precious metals Ponzi scheme alive. . .

Folks would do well to realize how neatly emerging details of Fed surrogate Morgan’s “stealth” activity in the bullion market dovetails with their obscene, obsequious activity elsewhere in their derivatives book—particularly their JUMBO TRILLIONS sized interest rate swap positions.

Stealth activity on the part of the Fed—utilizing proxy institutions to generate limitless artificial demand for any and all US Government Debt—effectively gives the Fed control of the long end of the interest rate curve [the bond market]. . .

If you accept the premise that, “J.P. Morgan ‘is’ the Fed,” then, “IT’S REALLY THE FED WHO IS BUYING GOLD” and they [unfortunately, this means “America”] likely have NONE LEFT to sell. . . Full story: financialsense.com


In Loving Memory of Sister Joan Veon

October 20, 2010 — One of our long-time contributing authors, Sister Joan Veon passed away on October 18, 2010. Back in 2007, Joan was diagnosed with metastasis breast cancer. Because it had spread from the breast into the lymph nodes and spine, she was told her cancer was in a stage four.

Sister Joan Veon“The cancer was God’s mercy to me. It was the wake-up call of a lifetime as I had to face myself. Psalm 51:17 says the “sacrifices of God are a broken and contrite heart.” The Cross is where we exchange our bitterness and anger for peace and joy found only in Jesus. This is truth. Once I let the anger go, (forgiving myself) I could forgive others. God heard my cry in November, 2007 and provided a measure of strength to a body that could not go on. In that moment of confession, He took away all the pain in my spine which was from the cancer affecting the bones. That’s Jesus. At every moment of my journey to wellness, He has provided answers, direction, and life. I am content spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally.”

“In a world without safety nets it no longer matters what kind of problems we are confronted with: high inflation, the high cost of living, joblessness, sickness, despair, divorce, or the evil men who control the world. It is God who delivers and provides, who sits on the edge of the world (Isaiah 40:20-31). It is for us to embrace His promises. The Bible is very clear about one thing, if you seek God with all your heart, you will find Him, but you must be sincere otherwise it doesn’t work.”

Joan attended more than 100 conferences put on by the elites who rule the world and want to destroy our world. She traveled to many foreign countries to get the truth first hand. A huge sacrifice demanding a great deal of time away from her family. But, she did it because, like millions of us, we know the grand scheme underway to bring down our country and force us to be ruled by a one world government. Joan said “No way,” and dedicated herself to fending off the attacks on our sovereignty with her columns, speeches and radio appearances. . .

Virginity – Part I

In her introduction to “Great Lion of God,” a fictitious history of the life of St. Paul in the ancient Roman world, Taylor Caldwell began by quoting Solomon, “There is nothing new under the sun.” The Roman empire was declining in the days of Saul of Tarshish as the American Republic [and all Christendom] is declining today—and for the very same reasons:

Permissiveness in society, immorality, the welfare state, endless wars, confiscatory taxation, the brutal destruction of the middle-class, cynical disregard of the established human virtues, principles and ethics, the pursuit of materialistic wealth, the abandonment of religion, venal politicians who cater to the masses for votes, inflation, deterioration of the monetary system, bribes, criminality, riots, incendiarisms, street demonstrations, the release of criminals on the public in order to create chaos and terror leading to a dictatorship in the name of the people, scandals in public office, the loss of masculine sturdiness and the feminization of the people, plundering of the treasury, debt, the attitude that ‘anything goes,’ the toleration of injustice and exploitation, bureaucracies and bureaucrats issuing evil ‘regulations’ almost every week, the centralization of government, the public contempt for good and honorable men, and, above all, the philosophy that ‘God is dead,’ and that man is supreme” (Taylor Caldwell, Great Lion of God (1970), p. xi-xii).

I Corinthians 14:33, “God is not the author of disorder, but of peace.” Before the foundation of the world, God created man in His image, and woman in the image of man for the glory of the man, so a deflowered woman has given her virginity to one other than her husband and marred his glory. The one sacred possession she alone can give her husband is her virginity, and before she accepts his proposal of marriage she must confess her unclean living. Should she neglect to do so he can put her away in divorcement for breach of contract when he discovers her shameful deceit, as she is already joined to Tom, Dick, and perhaps even Healthy Harold, so her vow was false (Matthew 5:32). But if she makes confession and he forgives her he takes her responsibility upon his own shoulders.

The banns of all who are to be married together should be announced in Church services on three successive Sundays, the minister announcing the names of the couple and asking, “If any of you know cause, or just impediment, why these two persons should not be joined together in Holy Matrimony, you are to declare it.” And again in the marriage ceremony before they take their public vows, “If any man can show any just cause, why they may not lawfully be joined together, let him now speak, or else hereafter forever hold his peace”.

Virginity is a matter of righteous honour for both men and women. Like truth and faith it is a precious confidence between intimates unobserved by the world but known to the Lord. Proverbs, 30:18-20, “There are three things which are too wonderful for me to understand—no, four! The traceless path an eagle in the sky; the unseen trail of a serpent upon a rock; the invisible passage of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the first lovemaking of a bridegroom with his virgin wife, which fruitful connection leaves behind no immediately apparent trace. Such also is the way of an adulterous woman, she and her adulterer cannot be convicted of their mysterious accomplishment, for the act is as likely to be detected as eating in one who has afterwards wiped his mouth”?

So the hypocrisy of double-dealing unfaithfulness may be undetected by husband or wife, friends and acquaintances, but the soul thus seared bears the marks of sin in perpetual consciousness, and the only way to relieve the burden from that troubled soul is repentance, confession, and asking forgiveness from those against whom you have trespassed, and only then asking the Lord’s forgiveness.

We learn from I Corinthians 11:3-15, “That the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. Any man praying or prophesying with uncut hair, dishonours his Head, but any woman praying or prophesying with cut hair dishonours her husband and head: for it is the same as if she were shaven [as an adulteress (Numbers 5:18). A woman who cuts her hair has an immoral spirit advertising her repudiation of the authority of God and man]. For if the woman is not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her not cut her hair. The man should not have uncut hair, since he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. (For man was not made from woman; but woman from the man. Neither was man created for the woman’s benefit; but the woman is a by-product made to be a “suitable helper” for man (Genesis 2:20). The woman therefore ought to have the token of uncut hair on her head to show that she is under his authority or jurisdiction because of the angels [or fivefold ministry who will rebuke her for rejecting the authority of God and man]. Nevertheless, in the Lord, woman is not independent of man, and man is not independent of woman [for together they represent Christ and His Bride, the ideal of redeemed humanity, and are mutually dependent in union to multiply natural life]; for as woman was made from man, so man is now born of woman; but all things are from God). Judge for yourselves: is it proper for a woman to worship God without the token of authority on her head? Does not nature itself teach you that uncut hair is degrading for a man [showing he has forfeited his authority as the image and glory of God], but glorious for a woman? For her hair is given to her for an ornament showing she is covered by the authority of God and man [and the man has a right to put his wife away if she cuts her hair]. If any one seems anxious to dispute the matter, we recognize no other practice, neither do the churches of God”.

Abraham’s faith was imputed to him for righteousness and God gave him the seal of circumcision in confirmation of His Covenant. As all of his natural seed was circumcised, when Israel was trapped at Nuweiba Beach God remembered His Covenant and made a passage through the Red Sea, but He did not recognize the uncircumcised Egyptians who perished presuming to share Covenant blessings (Acts 7:8-36). This will be the fate of foolish virgin in the circle of this Message who try to meet the Lord with no Oil in their lamps; then there will be weeping and wailing, and gnashing of teeth.

Only males were in the Covenant because only males can be circumcised. The women came under the Covenant through marriage, wherefore “when he marries, a man must leave his father and mother so he can be perfectly joined to his wife [and she recognize his sole authority over her], and two shall be one flesh.” Paul types natural marriage whereby the husband provides for, sanctifies, cherishes and imparts life to his wife, with the Spiritual wherein Christ imparts His Life and perfects the Church in union with the Word (Ephesians 5:22-33).

Abraham’s promised Seed was Jesus Christ so his Spiritual seed are all whose souls are born of the Word for their hour, which is Christ, the Logos (Genesis 17:8; 22:18; Isaiah 53:10; Romans 9:7-8; Galatians 3:16). And every true child of Abraham is circumcised, not of the surplus flesh, but of the heart. The Holy Spirit cuts away the things of the world, and makes you a new creature in Christ Jesus, but without that circumcision you are not in the Covenant (Romans 8:1-16). Since Pentecost, Christian women enter the Covenant by Spiritual union with Christ the Word of the hour, and if they are under the Headship of Christ they will submit themselves to the authority of their own husband and not usurp authority over man (Genesis 3:16; I Timothy 2:8-15).

Women veil themselves when they are being married signifying they are a body with no head. Once they have exchanged vows the bride removes her veil and places it over her husband’s shoulders, signifying that not only is she under his dominion—that she has transferred her rights to him—that he is the head—but also that he bears the responsibility and the care and that HE AND HE ALONE—NO ONE ELSE—NO OTHER MAN—NO OTHER POWER—HAS ANY RIGHT AND RESPONSIBILITY. A husband ought to live such a sanctified life before his wife that she can reverence him as a Son of God. And that is why the Church ought to veil and surrender itself to Christ, because He is the Head, and He is the Word (Isaiah 9:6-7). The church is a woman, and the Lord has called His elect and even the foolish virgin out from every one of them because they have rejected the Headship of Christ and He calls them religious prostitutes whose end is to be burned (Revelation 2:20-23; 17:1-5). So His Word says, “Avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the Law; for they are unprofitable and vain. One who is a heretic after the first and second admonition reject; [even if he gives you a new mountain bike] knowing that the election is off and he is subverted, and sins, being condemned of himself” (Titus 3:9-11; Isaiah 61:2; Revelation 22:11-19).

What price is your own soul? Obedience is better than sacrifice. It is “the little foxes that spoil the vine.” Those who have been obedient in small things will receive the greater blessings. If you are disobedient the revelation will go over your head and you will find yourself shipwrecked as a manpleaser when you should seek to be approved unto God alone. God’s Word calls for a total separation from unbelief.

Eternal means to be without beginning of days or end of life so one cannot receive eternal Life, either you always were eternal and did not realize your true identity until you heard the Word of the hour calling your name from the Lamb’s Book of Life, or you never will be eternal. If you are eternal you were an Attribute of God’s eternal thinking, one of the angels in the likeness of your glorified appearance—“when the morning stars sang together, and all the Sons of God shouted for joy [at the revelation of their redemption]” (Job 38:7), to whom God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” So before God formed man in flesh, in His great thinking he was a theophany like Himself before He was made flesh. And when the first man was formed he was by himself on earth as God had been by Himself eternally. When He said “let us” to all the men and women who were already in His great thinking and foreknowledge, He made (Heb. ‘asah’) man out of existing material, and He transformed Adam from the Attribute to flesh.

When God created (Heb. ‘bara’) all of humankind out of nothing but His creative thoughts, He instructed us on how we are to live and govern this planet: “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and said, Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air and every living thing that moves on the earth”  (Genesis 1:26 – 2:17).

But when He (Heb. ‘yatsar’) molded Adam in flesh and took Eve from his side, the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Reason had overcame obedience to faith and receiving the knowledge of “good and evil” (Genesis 3) they separated themselves from paradise and the Presence of the Lord.

Ecclesiastes 7:26-29 warns against an unchaste woman and her seductive arts, she being a representative of the female sex in general in its worst aspect, women in general are represented as the more corrupt portion of humanity. “I found the woman whose heart is snares and nets [expressed in her looks as expressions of the thoughts of her heart] and whose hands are chains [of voluptuous embraces] more bitter than death. Whoever pleases God will escape her, but the sinner will be caught in the nets and snares of her heart and by her seductive arts. This is what have I found, says the preacher, searching step by step for the conclusion. What my soul sought continually but I have not found: one [righteous] man among a thousand have I found [i.e. the first man, Adam]; but a woman among all these I have not found [because of Eve’s deception (Genesis 2:22-25). Thus moral excellence among women, taken as a whole, is more rarely found than among men]. This alone have I found—that God made man upright, but they have sought out many artifices”.

“A beautiful woman lacking discretion and modesty is like a fine gold ring in a pig’s snout. . . A woman of virtuous character is a crown to her husband: but she who brings shame is rottenness in his bones” (Proverbs 11:22; 12:4).

Brother’s who have good wives should thank God for their good wife, even if they are not in the Message. A woman is the best helpmate God could give a man. But a lovely Christian woman who meets the criterion of an unmarried Brother in every way is not his until he takes her to wife and takes her responsibilities on his shoulder. And that’s the way this Message is, you can sympathize with It and say It’s right, but until you accept the responsibility of total separation from the world and the things of the world and become one with the Message you have no part nor inheritance with Christ’s brethren, like the Levites the Lord is our inheritance, the Word alone, as He has promised (Deuteronomy 10:9; Luke 11:35-36). Then the anointing is with you, as it is with the others, and like the Levites you are not counted with the world; not even among the “saved”.

When a Brother marries that special woman he has chosen—they are one, and when the reality of Christ is revealed to you personally in His Word, then you are a manifest part of Him through the invisible marriage union, and He is part of you; and together you are one in the Message (John 17:20-26).

God is the real witness in the theocratic marriage and “What God has joined together let not man put asunder” (Matthew 19:6). For when a man is joined together with his wife they are one flesh (Genesis 2:24) thus a virgin bride and groom who honour their vows will forever be chaste virgins because the two are one flesh. Jesus will be the unselfish Friend in a theocratic marriage and brace it against the worldly pressures and strains brought against it. If the man and woman reserve their greatest love for God, put Him first, obey Him first, give Him preeminence on their time, energy and substance, their marriage will not become driftwood on the matrimonial seas.

David on his throne with five hundred wives and Solomon on his throne with his thousand could marry any woman so long as she did not have a living husband, and as many women as they chose. Adam was commanded to multiply and replenish from himself before Eve broke the union of holy wedlock so that multiplication of the race came through the by-product by sex through lust born to die (Job 14:1-6), not through the Word by faith and born to eternal Life. Jesus was born of the spoken Word through a virgin woman without sexual desire as the last Adam in order to fulfil God’s original command (Genesis 2:28). So in the millennium there will be One Lord Jesus on His Throne with His many-membered Wife (singular): thousands times thousands reborn by Spiritual multiplication of the spoken Word and created out of the earth by the hand of Almighty God in the resurrection, fulfilling Jesus’ prayer of John 17:20-26:

“I am not praying only for My disciples, but for the future believers who will come to Me through their testimony; so that they all may be one; as You, Father, are one in Me, and I am one in You, that they also may be one in us, so that the world may believe that You have sent Me. I have given them the glory you gave Me—the glorious unity of being one in the Word as we are: I in them, and You in Me, all being perfected into one [manifested revelation of the Spirit]; that the world may know that You sent me and understand that You love them as much as You love Me. Father, I want them with Me—these You have given Me—that they may see My glory which You have given to Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father, the world has not known You, but I have known You, and these know that You have sent Me. And I have made known and will make known to them [the Attributes of] Your Name [(Isaiah 43:3, 11, 14; 44:6, 24; 47:4) Jehovah-Jireh, Jehovah-Rapha, Jehovah-Nissi, Jehovah-Shalom, Jehovah-Raah, Jehovah-Tsidkenu and Jehovah-Shammah which are all manifest in the Supreme Deity of Jehovah-Saviour, whose compound redemptive Name, Lord Jesus Christ, is “the Name above EVERY name that is named, not only in this world, but also in the world that is to come” [(Ephesians 1:21; Philippians 2:9; Colossians 1:16; Hebrews 1:4), “And whatever we do in word or deed we do in the Name of our KINSMAN Redeemer,” or we pray in vain (Ephesians 5:20; Colossians 3:17)] so that the love with which You have loved Me may be in them, and I in them”.

If you are a part of the Spiritual multiplication of God, you will be at one in the agreement of faith (Amos 3:3; Matthew 4:4; 24:24; John 10:1-5; Revelation 22:17-19).

In Galatians 3:26-29 Paul explains how the multiplication will come through the last Adam, “In Christ Jesus you are all the Sons of God [male and female in yourselves like Adam before Eve was taken from his side] through faith [not sex]. For all of you who have been baptized into union with Christ have been enveloped by Him. There is neither Israelite nor Gentile, there is neither slave nor freeman, there is neither male nor female, because you are all one in Christ Jesus [therefore all of these natural antitheses do not come into account in this relation, for if one is born anew, whatever else he may be, in Christ Jesus he is a Son of God]. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, and heirs in agreement with the promise”.

A minister may not marry a woman who has been touched by man. Leviticus 21:13-14, “he shall not take a widow, or a divorced woman, or profane, or a whore; but he shall take a virgin of his own people to wife.” (In Ezekiel 44:22 the injunction not to marry a widow, even that of a priest, is extended from the high priest to the whole body of priests, who in this aspect appear high-priestly as everything on the top of the mountain was most holy and this Scripture concerns the 144,000 elect Israelites reborn under the New Covenant – Ezekiel 43.12). Priestly marriage under the Old Covenant was to be consecrated to rearing up a natural hereditary blessing as the marriage of Christ and His Bride is consecrated to “the ministry of reconciliation as ambassadors for Christ” (II Corinthians 5:18-21; John 1:13-14). What this shows is that our High Priest, of whom the Christian minister is a natural type, is only marrying a virgin to the Word of the hour, not a denominational harlot.

The natural types the Spiritual so that the spirit of physical fornication is the very same spirit that lies in organized religion, which is idolatry, and all fornicators will have their place in the lake of Fire. That is what God thinks of organization. The Roman whore and her daughters will be in the lake of Fire. Denominationalism is a wrong spirit that separates the people of God into hierarchy and laity, a wrong spirit that separates the people from the people. Organization and denominations do this to gain power over the people, who separate themselves from the Word of God by organizing and bring themselves into spiritual adultery (Numbers 31; Revelation 2:14).

As the Ephesian Age was but the seed bed for the tragic Pergamean Age in which the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church would organize in marriage with the Roman state, the Smyrnean Age was the sunshine and rain that nourished the vile corruption that would confirm the church in idolatry which is spiritual fornication, from which she would never rise (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 17:5; 18:4). Death was permeating her root to branch and they that partook of her, partook of bitterness and death.

I Corinthians 6:12-20, “Everything is permitted me, but not everything is beneficial. Although all things are lawful for me, I will not be enslaved by anything. Food is meant for the belly, and the belly for food, but someday God will destroy both of them. Yet the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body, and as God raised up the Lord, so will He raise up us by His power. Are you not aware that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I take away the members of Christ, and make them members of a prostitute? Never! Do you not know that he who joins himself with a prostitute becomes one body with her? For Scripture says, “The two shall become one flesh.”

This phrase is spoken of the union of a man a woman as they become one flesh in sexual intercourse, even before conception they are one, because conception is merely the fruit of the union that took place at copulation. So even in the case of fornication they are one flesh as if they were married, but one in sin against their own bodies, and they are now under a curse (Galatians 5:19-21; Colossians 3:5-7; I Thessalonians 4:3; Jude 7). “But God and the soul that is joined together with God is one Spirit. Flee fornication. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body but the fornicator sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is within you, which you have from God. You do not belong to yourselves, you were bought with a price, so glorify God with your body”.

Having treated the evils in the Church reported to him in correspondence, from chapter seven Paul proceeds to answer questions put to him in the letter from Corinth, and addresses the propriety of marriage and the respective duties of the man and his wife. This subject is closely connected with his earnest warnings against fornication, for not only does it embrace sexual relations but also the depreciation of marriage owing to an ascetic moral prejudice concerning celibacy and disparagement of marriage, and it might be inferred that among the Corinthians there were persons like those spoken of in I Timothy 4:3 “forbidding to marry” as if it were sinful, in opposition both to heathen immoralities, and to the sensualism of Edomite Jewry in this respect.

I Corinthians 7:2-5, “Now concerning the subjects of your correspondence: It is good for a man not to touch [that is to have sexual relations (Genesis 22:6; Proverbs 6:29) with] a woman [of which that occurring within marriage is one kind]. But on account of the temptation to sexual immorality and to prevent fornications, let EVERY MAN have his own wife, and let EVERY WOMAN have her own husband [pointing to monogamy among Christians whereas under the Old Covenant polygamy was permissible]. The husband must render to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband. For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does; likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by mutual agreement for a limited time, to devote yourselves to fasting and prayer; then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.”

Marital intercourse is not the same as the illegitimate connection, but is refined and elevated by the pure love which binds the two parties in life-long and absolute union for the very noblest ends, and of which it is the bodily expression. Hence Paul is here prescribing a veritable cure for the evil passion, and disallowing its indulgence.

Hebrews 13:4, “Let marriage be held in honour by all people in every respect, and the marriage bed undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge.” The marriage bed is potentially defiled by all previous and certainly by all present gratifications without the covenant of marriage. Many who have had liaisons with other partners prior to marriage confess to reminiscing as they are in copulation with their own spouse, thereby committing adultery in their heart and defiling the marriage bed (Matthew 5:27-28).

In I Corinthians 7:25-28, 36-38, Paul gives counsel to parents towards their children in the matter of marriage—especially of daughters—stipulating that Christians should marry one likeminded, and “only in the Lord.” Unions between believers and citizens of the world entered into out of carnal complacency, or with an eye to the socioeconomic ladder in hope of a future Emmaus Road conversion commonly gender Spiritual amnesia in the believing partner, so Christian parents should hinder with firmness rather than hope in vain, and endure the immediate family disharmony.

From verse 26 to 35 Paul advises the unmarried “as one who has received mercy from the Lord to be trustworthy.” He says that “in view of the present distress [perhaps the famine under Claudius] it is good for a person, whether married or single, to remain as they are,” reinforcing what he has already said in verse 24. Those who marry, says Paul, shall incur “trouble in the flesh” (that is, in their outward state, owing to the added cares of husband, wife and children which are perplexing in times of distress), not sin, which is the trouble of the soul. But Paul expresses his paternal benevolence, for he is not ascribing greater moral excellence to the unmarried than to the married, but contrasting the comparative outward ease of one, with the burden of joint responsibilities which will press upon the other by reason of the “present distress . . . but I spare you” the pain of dilating upon the details of the inconveniences of matrimony lest even the incontinent at the peril of lust may be deterred from matrimony.

“But I tell you this, brethren, the (Gk. ‘kairos’) time is growing short: from now on, let those who have wives live as though they had none; and the mourners as though they were not mourning, and the joyful as though they did not rejoice, and those who purchase as though they had no goods, and those who deal with the world as if they had no use for it. For the present (Gk. ‘kosmos’) world order is passing away.”

“I want you to anxious in nothing. The single person is anxious about the Lord’s affairs, and how to please Him, but the married person is concerned for earthly responsibilities, how to please his wife. His interests are divided. The unmarried woman or virgin is interested in the affairs of the Lord, that she may be dedicated to Him both in body and in spirit: but the married woman is concerned for earthly responsibilities, how she may please her husband. I say these things not to deter you from marrying, but to encourage good order and to secure your undivided devotion to the Lord”.

The Greek language more carefully defines meaning, thus we find two definitions of “time” in the New Testament. The first word, chronos, (5550 Strong’s Concordance) refers to “time as succession, without any moral impact as to the opportunity and accomplishments in that time.” The second word is kairos (2540 Strong’s Concordance). Kairos time is a time of opportunities and accomplishments, and not just the succession of moments. Chronos time has no challenge nor accomplishment at all. Kairos time implies that which time gives an opportunity to do. It can be better understood as “opportune time”; the necessity of accomplishing the task at hand, whether it is convenient or not, must be grasped and understood in order for us to fulfill kairos time. Kairos time is that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, that second or minute, hour or year, when a golden opportunity is sovereignly given to us by the Almighty. What we do with it can change our lives, the lives of others, a nation, and even the world. It might even save a generation of people from destruction, as it did in the story of Queen Esther who had been made queen “for such a time as this” (Gwen Shaw, End-Time Maidens Magazine, April, 1999. See Newsletter 286 which included input by our precious Sister Joan Veon who was such a blessing and went to be with the Lord last Monday).

Paul was speaking of ‘Kairos’ time, which is often related to “crisis time,” and His admonition was to you and me as much as to the Church at Corinth, for “the last days” is the Messianic Age of redemption and completion that commenced at Pentecost and will continue to the consummation. Paul was encouraging the Corinthians and saints of all Ages to maintain a personal independence of all external worldly relations that would restrict our communion with Christ, so that no conjugal love, no sorrows over disasters and losses, no exultation over good fortune, should be allowed to possess our human spirit so as to impair Divine communion (Hebrews 12:1; I John 2:15-17).

It is particularly important in the present holy convocation wherein “the mystery of God is finished” and we now have the perfect interpretation of God’s Word and understand His timetable, that we remain internally free from what is transient, and ready to play our role in the manifestation of the Sons of God. Sin and the hope of earthly inheritance blind and render us insensitive to priorities so that what could be a kairos time in our life becomes merely a chronos time of passing moments until life is over, and it is time to die. The Spirit and the Bride are calling the sleeping virgin to wake up and discern the times, to understand that this is kairos time, it is crisis time, and to grasp every opportunity God gives us in these passing moments (Matthew 25:1-13; Hebrews 3:13-15; Revelation 22:17-19).

In verses 36 to 38 Paul speaks of virgins in particular, addressing himself especially to fathers who are responsible for allowing or disallowing the marriage of their virgin daughters. If the daughter is in her twenties and passing the bloom of youth, thus debarring her from the lawful gratification of her natural feeling as a marriageable woman, “let him do as he pleases; it is no sin to let them marry,” the daughter and her suitor. On the other hand, if his daughter has little or no inclination to marry, and is endowed with special gifts to serve the Lord in her virgin state, and delights in such, then it becomes the parent to stand fast against the unwanted solicitation of suitors and relatives and to sustain his virgin daughter as a virgin to devote herself to the Divine calling. “So that he who marries off his virgin daughter does well, and he who does not marry her off does even better.” And what Paul has said in relation to virgins, in verses 39 to 40 he also applies to the remarrying of widows. nl656.htm

Letter from Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 655

“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 have been sent the following copy of a letter translated from Farsi to English. It was written on June 2, 2010 by our Brother Youcef Nadarkhani, Pastor of a Message Church in Rasht, Iran. Brother Youcef has been imprisoned since October 2009 and was sentenced to death early this month for apostasy, that is, for converting from Islam to Christianity and preaching the present Truth, which others hearing seized with faith. His wife is serving a life sentence for the same “crime” while their two little children are in the care of relatives.

It had been my intention to prepare a correspondence to the religious and political Authorities in Iran but I have given priority to this extraordinary Newsletter, believing your fervent prayers will be more immediately effectual as only days remain in which our Brother might appeal. In the meantime may you lift Brother Youcef, his wife and other Iranian Christians imprisoned and otherwise persecuted for the faith before the throne of Mercy, and pray the Lord will touch the hearts of the Authorities.

The Son of man has come. May His Presence be seen in Iran by the manifestation of the ‘third pull’ to the glory of His Name and the growth of His Kingdom.

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


Letter from Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani

Pastor Youcef NadarkhaniDear brothers and sisters, Salam.

In the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I am continuously seeking grace and mercy to you, that you remember me in your prayers, and those who are bearing efforts for His Name.

Your loyalty to God is the cause of my strength and encouragement. For I know well that you will be rewarded, as it’s stated: blessed is the one who has faith, for what has been said to him by God, will be carried out. As we know (we believe), heaven and earth will fade but His Word will still remain.

Dear beloved ones, I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of a few verses, although you might know everything, So that in them, you struggle more than past, both to prove your being chosen and for the Gospel that is supposed to be preached to the entire world as well.

I know that not all of us are granted to keep this word but to those who are granted this power and this revelation, I announce the same as Judas, struggle for the faith that was once given to the saints.

We are passing by special and sensitive days. The days that for an alert and awake believer can be days of Spiritual growth and progress. Because for him, more than any other time there is possibility to compare his faith with the Word of God, to have God’s promises in mind, and to survey His faith.

Therefore he (the true believer) does not wonder for the fire that has been set on for him as something unusual, but it pleases him to participate in Christ’s passion. Because he knows he will rejoice in His glory.

Dears, the judgment starts from the God’s temple, and if it starts from us, what a consequence will the disobedient to the gospel of God gain? And if the righteous one is saved hardly, where can the miscreants be found?

Therefore those who are enduring burdens by the will of God, dedicate their souls to the faithful creator. Promises that He has given us, are unique and precious. As we’ve heard He has said “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.”

How can it be possible for a believer to understand these Words?

Not only when he is focusing on Jesus Christ with adapting his life according to the Life Jesus lived when He was on earth? As it is said, “O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the Law to fail.”

Have we not read and heard: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto Life, and few there be that find it. Many attempt to flee from their Spiritual tests, and they have to face those same tests harder. Because no one will win only by escaping from them but with patience, humility he will be able to overcome all the tests and to gain victory.

Therefore in the place of Christ’s followers, we must not feel desperate, but we have to pray to God in supplication with more passion to help us with any assistance we may need.

According to what Paul has said: In every temptation, God himself will make a way for us to tolerate it.

O beloved ones, difficulties do not weaken mankind, but they reveal the human true nature. It will be good for us occasionally to face persecutions and abnormalities. Since these abnormalities will persuade us to go back to our hearts and to survey ourselves. So as a result, we conclude that troubles are annoying but usually good and useful to build us.

Dear brothers and sisters, we must be more careful more than any time else. Because in these days, many’s hearts and thoughts are revealed so that the faith is gauged. May your treasure be where there is no moth and rust.

I would like to remind you of some verses that we nearly discuss everyday, (Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your Name, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven). but as long as our human will has priority to the God’s will, His will will not be done.

As we have learned from Him in Gethsemane, He surrendered His will to the Father. “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from Me. Yet not as I will, but as You will.”

What we are bearing today, is a difficult but not unbearable situation. Because neither has He tested us more than our faith and our endurance nor does He do as such. And as we have known from before, we must beware not to fail but to advance in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And to consider these bumps and prisons as opportunities to testify to His Name. He said: If anyone is ashamed of Me and My Words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.

As a small servant, necessarily in prison to carry out what I must do, I say with faith in the Word of God that He will come soon. “However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?”

Discipline yourself with faith in the Word of God. Retain your souls with patience. For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly.

May you be granted grace and blessings increasingly in the Name of Lord Jesus Christ.

Prelude to the Barcelona Conference on the Mediterranean Union

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 654

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

Once again it is our privilege to greet you in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Please continue to uphold our Brother, Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, his wife and other imprisoned and persecuted Iranian Christians before the Lord. May He strengthen and encourage them to continue to stand for their convictions and shine His Light with reason upon the hearts of men in government, granting them courage to rebuke and withstand misguided clerics, blinded and overcome by their Nicolaitane lust for power over the laity.

This week’s Newsletter departs from our usual format in that it is almost entirely “news.” Our main Article was compiled by Jewish contributing author Barry Chamish, and together with our comments, supplements what he wrote in Newsletter #651. It illustrates the onslaught of Rome’s semantic and juridical siege of Jerusalem, which is to be her capital in the “time of Jacob’s trouble.” Barry is an Israeli investigative journalist, author and lecturer self-exiled in the United States, and may be contacted through the Barry Chamish Website where you will find his books, articles and lectures.

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


Bank of America ‘pulls the Pin’ to Explode Financial Grenade

October 12, 2010 — The decision last week by Bank of America to freeze all foreclosures on its mortgages in all 50 US states amounts to ‘pulling the pin’ on the grenade that will explode the global financial system, according to US physical economist Lyndon LaRouche.

Literally trillions of dollars worth of derivatives contracts based on mortgages could be found to have no asset backing at all, which will implode the inflated financial system.

In recent weeks millions of American families who were evicted from their homes as a result of the subprime crisis have discovered that their foreclosures were probably illegal—three years after leading Democrats in the US Congress allied to Barack Obama, such as Barney Frank, blocked LaRouche’s proposed Homeowners and Bank Protection Act which would have protected all those homeowners from foreclosure while the financial system was sorted out.

The present scandal relates to the fact that in all of the slicing and dicing and bundling of mortgages that underpinned the derivatives speculation in mortgage backed securities (MBSs) and collateralised debt obligations (CDOs)—on which dozens of local councils in Australia lost hundreds of millions of dollars—the legal paperwork to prove title and mortgage contracts was often skipped. . .

The trillions of dollars in bailout funds pumped into the banks by the U.S. Federal Reserve and other central banks have shored up securities that were assumed to be backed by assets, i.e. physical houses. The banks foreclosed on millions of those houses to recoup the value of those assets. The freeze will start to reveal that many of the assets claimed by the banks either aren’t real, or aren’t theirs.

In turn, the bailout funds exchanged for those assets will be proved to be worthless, which will set off a global chain-reaction meltdown. . .

Nine Months after the Quake – a Million Haitians Slowly Dying

October 11, 2010 — Haiti looks like the quake could have been last month. I visited Port-au-Prince shortly after the quake and much of the destruction then looks the same nine months later. The Associated Press reports only 2 percent of the rubble has been removed and only 13,000 temporary shelters have been constructed. Not a single cent of the US aid pledged for rebuilding has arrived in Haiti. In the last few days the US pledged it would put up 10 percent of the billion dollars in reconstruction aid promised. Only 15 percent of the aid pledged by countries and organizations around the world has reached the country so far.

With other human rights advocates from CCR, MADRE, CUNY Law School, BAI and the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti, I am huddled under faded, gray tarps stamped US Aid. Blue tarps are staked into the ground as walls. This is not even the hot season. but the weather reports the heat index is 115. The floor is bare dirt, soft from a recent rain. . .

Update on the Gulf Oil Spill Catastrophe

October 11, 2010 —
BP wisely planned how to escape as much liability as they could from their unsolvable Gulf oil spill… The media plays a huge role in whether a coverup like the Gulf spill succeeds or fails. . . One of the goals of the New World Order is to drastically lower the world population by up to 90%. The Gulf Oil Spill fits nicely into this plan . . . The steady elimination of foliage and inability to grow food consequent to oil and Corexit damage to crops would clearly be likely to reduce food production in the Gulf states.

US seeks to declare Pakistan Failed State

October 8, 2010 — I think we have to look at what is happening. We have these cross-border incursions by US-led NATO forces into Pakistan. There was an attack on some Pakistani military units just the other day. And it would seem that the terrorist threat is not… to Western Europe or the United States, and I have been told by people in Pakistan that US covert operations teams may be responsible for some of the terrorist attacks in Pakistan, that were later attributed to the Pakistani Taliban.

I think there is a conscious effort by the Obama administration to destabilize Pakistan and I think they are working with Mossad and the Indian Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) to do that, in order to give a pretext for declaring Pakistan a failed state and seize the nuclear weapons.

We see all these phony terrorist alerts. We just had a report last week from a high-level British law enforcement official who said all these terrorist alerts are a load of rubbish. Now we have other people saying that they are nonsensical. So, I think we are seeing a common denominator here that people like Obama and Sarkozy in France are having political prompts. They pull the al-Qaeda rabbit out of a hat to use it for their own purposes. Full story: presstv.ir


Smarter than You Think

October 9, 2010 — As we merged with freeway traffic on Highway 101, one of Silicon Valley’s busiest freeways, Christopher Urmson, the man in the driver’s seat, gestured, not touching the steering wheel. Mr. Urmson is a engineer, and last Wednesday, I sat belted in the back seat as he talked and as the car, a Toyota Prius equipped by Google with radar, video, motion sensors and a GPS device, drove itself at 60 miles an hour.

My eyes were glued to the 22-inch three-dimensional color display in front of Dmitri Dolgov, an artificial intelligence researcher at Google who was riding shotgun. It showed the world around us in great detail, down to painted lane markers, stop signs, traffic lights and a sliding green column that indicated our path. A blocky yellow object representing a car was coming up behind us in the lane we were entering as the robotic, female voice of the Prius announced, “Preparing to change lane”. . .

Boy's Life MagazineComment: In 1933 the Lord showed Brother Branham seven continuous visions. The fourth vision said, “And it shall come to pass, that before the end time shall come, that automobiles will take on the shape of an egg, become more like an egg. And I saw an American family driving down a highway in a car that. . . They were setting facing one another, and had a table, and were, look like, playing checkers or cards. And they didn’t have any steering wheel in the car. And it was controlled by some power without a steering wheel. How many remembers me prophesying that”? (COD, p. 923:17).

You remember, I predicted that in 1933. And it will be that way too. For I saw a vision before the end time, that great and powerful thing stood up in the United States, [the Roman Catholic church], and she become as stubbles. So then, it’s going to happen. I said, “Automobiles will—come like the shape of an egg.” You know what a ’33 car looked like. And I said, “There’ll even be traveling on the road, they won’t even have to guide it.” They’ve already got that out; I seen it here not long ago. It’ll be controlled by electronics like, or by a magnetic post, to cut their speed and so forth, and raise their speed. They can’t hit against one another and so forth. And I’ve got that wrote in a book since 1933. And it’ll be that way; we’re coming to it now. We’re right in it, because the Holy Spirit is the One that leads the church, and warns us of dangers that is to come” (Lamb and the Dove, #60-0805).


Sarkozy Seeks to Confirm Collaboration with Church

Vatican City, October 8, 2010 — French President Nicolas Sarkozy visited Benedict XVI today to confirm constructive collaboration with the Catholic Church, after differences that have arisen in recent months. A communiqué issued by the Holy See affirmed the “joint desire to maintain permanent dialogue at various institutional levels, and to continue constructive collaboration on matters of mutual interest”. . .

The spark that served Sarkozy to request the audience—held in the Holy Father’s library for some 30 minutes—was kindled on August 22, when the Pope exhorted French pilgrims gathered at Castel Gandolfo for the midday Angelus to “accept legitimate human differences.” The Pontiff’s comment came after the president announced the expulsion from France of gypsies who in the majority are of European origin. . .

The Truth on Christian Water Baptism

Brother Ronnie Milevo of the Philippines has prepared this excellent video presentation on Scriptural water baptism, which clearly illustrates the Supreme Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is God to the exclusion of all others. There is not and was never at any time a God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost. God is One, and His compound redemptive Name is LORD JESUS CHRIST. Full story: youtube


Prelude to the Barcelona Conference on the Mediterranean Union
by Barry Chamish and your Editor

This further collation of current affairs builds upon the main article of Newsletter #651, “If You Thought September was bad, wait until November,” which disclosed the “City of London” as the hidden hand manipulating the marionettes of the Council on Foreign Relations toward the establishment of Lucifer’s totalitarian one world government ruling from its capital in Jerusalem which Jesus regards considers “spiritually as Sodom and Egypt” in this time. History is in the making with the fulfillment of Biblical prophecies reported daily in the electronic and print media in real time for those who have eyes that can see and ears that can hear. And once the political Zionists and political Islamists are made a spent force in the ‘hot’ phase of World War III, Rome will restore peace and rule the world in covenant with the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled international Jews of “the City” as foretold in Daniel 9:27, Luke 21:24, Romans 11:25, and Revelation 11:2. The following reports illustrate how Rome is corrupting and deceiving many with the slippery promises of flattery, also known as ‘diplomacy’ (Daniel 11:21, 34).

This game plan was prophesied by Daniel, while the endgame began at the First Nicaea Council in the fourth century when Imperial Rome transmogrified into Papal Rome to settle a religious problem and fix a powerful, much-needed cultural glue for the Roman world. Emperor Constantine won political support by creating a Christianized Mithras religion in alliance with “those who say they are Jews, and are not,” whose intent is to destroy the Messianic faith (Revelation 2:9). This game plan was employed in the seventh century when the Judaeo-Roman church created Islam to recover Jerusalem from the Hebrews, but Islam became a mighty power independent of Rome as Judaeo-Communism would rebel under Stalin. In the eighteenth century the house of Rothschild began its rise to global financial dominion, reviving the Illuminati to deliver global hegemony. In the nineteenth century they devised Communism, Nazism and Zionism, humanism, feminism and other isms to engage in controlled conflict to realize the kingdom of their god Lucifer, who will soon be cast down to earth to incarnate “that man of sin, the son of perdition,” and rule the world.

Benedict XVI’s “mainly pastoral” purpose is predominantly political and places salvation in the Judaeo-Roman false church rather than in the Lord Jesus Christ, our Kinsman Redeemer. You will note in the following articles [in which the emphases are ours], that Rome is wooing both political Zionists and political Islamists, mainly Palestinians, as if she were an honest broker, however she is employing Hegelian dialectics whereby these parties have been brought into controlled conflict with one another so that either Rome wins or they lose. Ever the consummate chess player, Lucifer always controls both sides and plans his moves centuries and decades ahead for a predetermined outcome; as you will discern, his bishop and king are set to make Jerusalem the capital of one world government:

Vatican’s ‘Special Middle East Assembly’ Set to Begin

R. C. BishopsVatican City, October 7, 2010 — An unprecedented Vatican Synod of Bishops—a ‘Special Assembly for the Middle East’—will be held in Vatican City from October 10 to 24. One hundred and seventy-two Catholic bishops from Islamic countries, 14 Roman Curia officials, 14 non-Catholic Christians and 30 academic experts will spend two weeks discussing the future of Catholic communities in the Middle East. ‘The urgent reasons for this meeting are that Christians are fleeing from the Middle East, and extremist Islamism is invading the area. We need to find a dialogue with Muslims, and unity among Christians,’ Monsignor Shlemon Warduni, auxiliary bishop of the Patriarchate of Babylon, Iraq, of the Chaldean Catholic Church, told The Jerusalem Post.

Usually, the Catholic Church points to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as the factor behind all unrest in the Middle East, declining to denounce the repression of Christian life in Muslim countries for fear of retaliation. Things are changing; [as Rome begins to assert her ancient power she needs local supporters on the ground].

According to Mordechay Lewy, Israel’s ambassador to the Holy See, the oft-repeated lament that Christians are fleeing the Holy Land is misleading. The term ‘Holy Land’ encompasses Turkey, Egypt and Iraq in addition to Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority, he said. [Is he referring to the Zionist myth of ‘Greater Israel’ or rooting for Rome]? ‘Therefore, to speak about the persecution or emigration of Christians from the Holy Land is doing an injustice to Israel and Jordan, as those countries never hosted such occurrences. The presence of Christians in Israel and in Jerusalem has not only remained stable since 1967, but is increasing in real terms,’ Lewy said.

Catholics are a small, persecuted minority in the Middle East. The recent slaying in Turkey of an Italian priest, Monsignor Luigi Padovese, by his driver four years after the murder of another Catholic priest, Father Andrea Santoro, are only the most sensational examples of an endless series of sporadic killings and steady violations of civil rights of Christians in Turkey, Syria, Iran, Palestine, Lebanon and Iraq.

In Iraq, for example, the Christian population has diminished from 1.4 million in 1987 to fewer than 400,000 today.

The working document (instrumentum laboris) for the Synod, “The Catholic Church in the Middle East: Communion and Witness,” was produced from a flood of alarming replies to a questionnaire based on a previous outline (lineamenta).

The responses came from the Synods of Bishops of the Oriental Churches, the Episcopal Conferences, the Dicasteries of the Roman Curia, and the Union of Superiors-General, as well as from many individual persons and ecclesial groups.

The resulting document clearly expresses concern over the rise of ‘political Islam. . . a threat to all, Christians, Jews and Muslims’ and the consequent ‘ghetto mentality’ of Christians who ‘isolate themselves out of fear of others.’

The official objective is to strengthen Christian identity and promote ecumenism in Muslim countries. The working document’s section on Catholics’ ‘Relations with Muslims’ states that they ‘are difficult principally because Muslims make no distinction between religion and politics, thereby relegating Christians to precarious positions of being considered noncitizens despite the fact that they were citizens of these countries long before the rise of Islam.’

A key goal is acquiring ‘religious freedom’—to be understood as freedom of worship and not, it is cautioned, ‘freedom of conscience, defined as freedom to believe or not believe, to practice one’s religion openly, either privately or publicly, or to change one’s religion for another.’ [A paradox—not freedom at all]!

Instituting ‘human rights education,’ says the document, is necessary for achieving these rights.

As a tribute to the two main non-Christian religions in the Middle East, Pope Benedict XVI and the Synod attendees will hear keynote speeches by three authorities: On October 13, [Papal Knight Commander of the Pontifical Order of St. Gregory the Great] Rabbi [Sir] David Rosen, adviser to Israel’s Chief Rabbinate and interreligious affairs director for the American Jewish Committee, will speak; [do you recognize the real power behind Rome “with flatteries”?], and on October 14, both the Grand Mufti of Beirut Mohammed al-Sammak, a Sunni, and Ayatollah Sayed Mostafa Muhagag Ahmadabadi, a professor of Islamic Law at Teheran University and a Shi’ite, will speak.

Rosen said he will address four points:

    ‘1. The sociological, cultural and political context in which Christian communities function in the Holy Land and interact with Jewry against the background of profound, recent changes in Jewish-Christian relations;
    2. Advances as well as difficulties in this relationship;
    3. Significant differences in the situation of the Christian communities within Israel and those considered part of a Palestinian polity in the making; and
    4. Significant recent changes in perceptions of Christianity in Israel and the role of Christian leadership in interfaith life and its potential for peacemaking in the region.’

Guidelines for relating to Jews and Judaism are contained in the working document’s 10-paragraph section on ‘Relations with Judaism,’ with both theological and political overtones.

Theologically, the post-Vatican II era of respect for the intrinsic value of the Jewish Bible seems to have vanished, overshadowed by the Christological ‘Salvation history’ thrust of this Synod, which defines the Old Testament mainly in its function of ‘prefiguration’ of the New Testament—sadly reminiscent of the Supercessionist theology of the past that effectively delegitimized Judaism.

According to the Synod’s working document, anti-Zionism must be banished as ‘foreign to every ecclesial discourse,’ because although not anti-Semitic, it is purely political. Moreover, Catholic anti-Semitism, said the questionnaire respondents, no longer exists. [Whereas Zionist anti-Semitism thrives].

Catholic communities are urged to engage in dialogue with Jews in a spirit of reconciliation. This dialogue is ‘essential,’ though ‘at times not without its obstacles.’

One obstacle is that ‘some biblical verses can be interpreted according to a ‘culture of violence.’ [What of the Talmud]? On October 19, Monsignor Michel Sabbah, 77, who was the archbishop and Latin patriarch of Jerusalem from 1987 to 2008, will present ‘Kairos Palestine,’ a scathing, mainly Protestant anti-Israel document signed by various Middle East Christian representatives who define ‘the Israeli occupation’ as a ‘sin against God and Humanity,’ (lifting this phrase from John Paul II’s definition of anti-Semitism). The document calls for both love, and ‘nonviolent resistance through divestment’ (jpost.com).


The Vatican Synod on the Middle East Begins

October 10, 2010 — The Catholic Church’s special “Synod on the Middle East” opened on October 10 in Rome with a Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica. The purpose is mainly pastoral: to consider how the Church can better live her mission in that region of the world. But the problematic political tensions in the region are also a concern. . .

“The great history of evangelization recounted in the Acts of the Apostles begins with the Christian community in the Holy Land. All Christians and people of good will look to this land made holy by the presence of the Lord Jesus, particularly at this time. . .” —Opening lines from the Lineamenta, the guideline for the Special Bishops’ Synod on “The Catholic Church in the Middle East: Communion and Witness,” October 10-24, 2010

“Salvation is universal, but it passes through a specific historical mediation: the mediation of the people of Israel, which goes on to become that of Jesus Christ and the Church.” —Pope Benedict XVI, Homily, Opening Mass of the Synod on the Middle East, St. Peter’s Basilica, Sunday, October 10, 2010.

“The Door of Life Is Open for Everyone — But It Is a Door. . .” [that can be closed in your face].

St Peter’s Basilica seemed more “universal” than usual this morning—and also more “particular.”

In fact, the basilica seemed no longer to rise from the soil of Rome, in Western Europe, but rather to have been transported, as if on some magic carpet, to Jerusalem, or Baghdad, or some other city of the near Orient.

coptic bishopWhy? Because it was filled with robes, and colors, and head coverings which seemed to come out of some scene in the Arabian nights, as 185 bishops from that majestic and troubled region of the world, along with 70 experts and advisors, gathered here from Israel, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt and a dozen other countries in the Middle East.

Pope Benedict immediately made clear that the central focus of this meeting is the same as the focus of his entire pontificate, and of the Church herself: simply Jesus Christ, and the salvation Christ brought, and brings. When we think of the Middle East, Benedict said, when we think of the Holy Land, of Jerusalem, of the Holy Sepulchre where Jesus’s body was laid in the tomb, we think of the doorway through which all of human history, and all of human hope, once passed.
When we think of the promise made by God that he would accomplish a universal salvation by means of a covenant, beginning with Abraham, Benedict said, we have hope that all of us may reach that “Promised Land” of peace and abundance. And, the Pope continued, the way is not simply to be understood as the possession of an earthly territory, an earthly homeland, an earthly “Promised Land.”

“God is love and wants all men to be part of His life,” Benedict said. “To carry out this plan He, who is One and Triune, [a pagan unscriptural oxymoron he cannot explain] creates in the world a mystery of a communion that is human and divine, historical and transcendent: He creates it with the ‘method’—so to speak—of the covenant, tying himself to men with faithful and inexhaustible love, forming a holy people, that becomes a blessing for all the families of the earth (Genesis 12:13). Thus He reveals Himself as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Exodus 3:6), who wants to lead his people to the ‘land’ of freedom and peace. This ‘land’ is not of this world; the whole of the divine plan goes beyond history, but the Lord wants to build it with men, for men and in men, beginning with the coordinates of space and time in which they live and which He Himself gave them.”

This, in a sense, is the central message of this Synod, already stated beforehand by the Pope in this opening homily.

The message is that the “Promised Land” of freedom and peace to which God wishes to lead “His” people is, yes, “not of this world,” for, as the Pope says, “the whole of the divine plan goes beyond history.”

And yet, at the same time, “the Lord wishes to build it [the Promised Land] with men, for men and in men, beginning with the coordinates of space and time in which they live and which He Himself gave them.”

In these words is an appeal to all those who live in the Holy Land, Jew and Gentile alike, Muslim, Christian and atheist alike, that the “Promised Land” of freedom and peace begin to be built here and now, in this privileged time, our own time, which is the acceptable time, should hearts be open enough to realize it. [If you present this exegesis of Benedict XVI to God, you will close the Door of grace in your own face – Hebrews 6:4-8].


The Pope’s Homily

On the morning of Sunday, October 10, during a Mass that combined Latin chants with Arabic ones, Pope Benedict formally launched the Synod on the Middle East with the following homily. Here is the complete text:

Venerable Brothers,
illustrious ladies and gentlemen,
dear brothers and sisters!

The Eucharistic celebration, the rendering of thanks to God par excellence, is marked for us today, gathered around the Tomb of Saint Peter, by an extraordinary reason: the grace of seeing gathered together for the first time at a Synod, around the Bishop of Rome and the Universal Shepherd, the bishops of the Middle Eastern region. Such a singular event demonstrates the interest of the whole Church for that precious and beloved part of God’s people who live in the Holy Land and the whole of the Middle East.

Above all, we give thanks to the Lord of history, because he has allowed, despite the often difficult and tormented events, the Middle East to see, from the time of Jesus all the way up to today, a continuity in the presence of Christians.

In those lands, the one Church of Christ is expressed in the variety of liturgical, spiritual, cultural and teaching traditions of the six Venerable Eastern Catholic Churches sui iuris, as well as in the Latin tradition.

This fraternal greeting which I direct with great affection to the Patriarchs of each of these wishes to be extended at this time to all the faithful entrusted to their pastoral care in their respective countries as well as in the Diaspora.

On this Sunday, the 28th of Ordinary Time, the Word of God offers a theme for meditation which brings us closer in a meaningful way to the event of the Synod that we open today.

Continued reading of the Gospel of Luke leads us to the story of the healing of the ten lepers, of whom only one, a Samaritan, turns back to thank Jesus. Connected with this text, the first reading, from the Second Book of Kings, tells the story of the healing of Naaman, head of the Aramaean army, another leper, who was cured by immersing himself seven times in the waters of the Jordan River, on the orders of the prophet Eliseus. Naaman too returns to the prophet and, recognizing him as the mediator of God, professes his faith in the one Lord. So two lepers, two non-Jews, who are cured because they believe in the Word of God’s messenger. Their bodies are healed, but they are open to faith, and this heals their souls, that is, it saves them.

The Responsorial Psalm sings of this reality:

‘Yahweh has made known his saving power, revealed his saving justice for the nations to see. Mindful of his faithful love and his constancy to the House of Israel’ (Psalm 98:2-3).

This then is the theme: salvation is universal, but it passes through a specific historical mediation: the mediation of the people of Israel, which goes on to become that of Jesus Christ and the Church. [If the Pope refers to the Judaeo-Roman church, he is in error – II Corinthians 5:13-21; Revelation 17:1-6].

The door of life is open for everyone, but this is the point, it is a ‘door’, that is a definite and necessary passage.

This is summed up in the Pauline formula we heard in the Second Letter to Timothy: ‘the salvation that is in Christ Jesus’ (II Timothy 2:10). It is the mystery of the universality of Salvation and at the same time of its necessary link with the historical mediation of Christ Jesus, preceded by that of the people of Israel and continued by that of the Church. God is love and wants all men to be part of His life; to carry out this plan He, who is One and Triune, creates in the world a mystery of a communion that is human and divine, historical and transcendent: He creates it with the ‘method’—so to speak—of the covenant, tying himself to men with faithful and inexhaustible love, forming a holy people, that becomes a blessing for all the families of the earth (Genesis 12:13). Thus He reveals Himself as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Exodus 3:6), who wants to lead his people to the ‘land’ of freedom and peace. This ‘land’ is not of this world; the whole of the divine plan goes beyond history, but the Lord wants to build it with men, for men and in men, beginning with the coordinates of space and time in which they live and which He Himself gave them.

With its own specificity, that which we call the ‘Middle East’, makes up part of those coordinates. God sees this region of the world, too, from a different perspective, one might say, ‘from on high’: it is the land of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; the land of the Exodus and the return from exile; the land of the Temple and of the Prophets, the land in which the Only Begotten Son of Mary was born, lived, died, and rose from the dead; the cradle of the Church, established in order to carry Christ’s Gospel to the ends of the earth.

And we too, as believers, look at the Middle East with this view, from the perspective of the history of salvation. It is this internal point of view which guided me during Apostolic visits to Turkey, the Holy Land—Jordan, Israel, Palestine—and Cyprus, where I was able to experience firsthand the joys and concerns of the Christian communities.

It was for this reason, too, that I willingly accepted the proposal of the Patriarchs and Bishops to convoke a Synodal Assembly to reflect together, in light of Sacred Scripture and Church traditions, on the present as well as the future of the faithful and populations of the Middle East.

Looking at that part of the world from God’s perspective means recognizing in it the ‘cradle’ of a universal design of salvation in love, a mystery of communion which becomes true in freedom and thus asks man for a response. Abraham, the prophets, and the Virgin Mary are the protagonists of this response which, however, has its completion in Jesus Christ, son of that same land, yet descended from Heaven. From Him, from his Heart and his Spirit was born the Church, which is a pilgrim in this world, yet belongs to Him.

The Church was established to be a sign and an instrument of the unique and universal saving project of God among men; She fulfils this mission simply by being herself, that is, ‘Communion and witness’, as it says in the theme of this Synodal Assembly which opens today, referring to Luke’s famous definition of the first Christian community: ‘The whole group of believers was united, heart and soul’ (Acts 4:32). Without communion there can be no witness: the life of communion is truly the great witness. Jesus said it clearly: ‘It is by your love for one another, that everyone will recognize you as my disciples’ (John 13:35). This communion is the same life of God which is communicated in the Holy Spirit, through Jesus Christ. It is thus a gift, not something which we ourselves must build through our own efforts.

And it is precisely because of this that it calls upon our freedom and waits for our response: communion always requires conversion, just as a gift is better if it is welcomed and utilized.

In Jerusalem the first Christians were few. Nobody could have imagined what was going to take place. And the Church continues to live on that same strength which enabled it to begin and to grow. Pentecost is the original event but also a permanent dynamism, and the Synod of Bishops is a privileged moment in which the grace of Pentecost may be renewed in the Church’s journey, so that the Good News may be announced openly and heard by all peoples.

Therefore, the reason for this Synodal Assembly is mainly a pastoral one. While not being able to ignore the delicate and at times dramatic social and political situation of some countries, the Pastors of the Middle Eastern Churches wish to concentrate on the aspects of their own mission.

As regards this, the Instrumentum laboris, elaborated by a Presynodal Council whose members we thank for their work, underlined these ecclesial finalities of the Assembly, pointing out that, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, it wishes to re-enliven communion of the Catholic Church in the Middle East. [Contrary to the Lord God, who, for the past forty-seven years, has been calling the wise and foolish virgin out from Rome and her (once) Protestant daughters into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation for the Jubilee of Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming which is at the doors (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:4; Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:46-57)].

First of all within each Church, between all its members: Patriarch, Bishop, priests, religious persons, persons of consecrated life and the laity. And, thereby, in the relationships with the other Churches. Ecclesial life, corroborated in this way, will see the development of very positive fruits in the ecumenical path with the other Churches and ecclesial Communities present in the Middle East. [Not according to Amos 3:3 and II Corinthians 6:14-18. Besides which, Jesus hates Nicolaitanism – Revelation 2:6, 15].

This occasion is also propitious to constructively continue the dialogue with Jews, to whom we are tied by an indissoluble bond, the lengthy history of the Covenant, as we are with the Muslims. [Christianity has no common bond with either religious group beyond respecting the fact God has granted to each the inalienable gift of life and free will, which no man or religion can restrict].

Also, the workings of the Synodal Assembly are oriented to the witness of Christians on a personal, family and social level. This requires the reinforcing of their Christian identity through the Word of God and the Sacraments.

We all hope that the faithful feel the joy in living in the Holy Land, a land blessed by the presence and by the Paschal Mystery of the Lord Jesus Christ. [“The mystery of God was finished” in 1963 when the seventh angel, William Branham, revealed the Seven Seals – Revelation 10:7]. Over the centuries those Places attracted multitudes of pilgrims and even men and women in religious communities, who have considered it a great privilege to be able to live and bear witness in the land of Jesus. Despite the difficulties, the Christians in the Holy Land are called to enliven their consciousness of being the living stones of the Church in the Middle East, at the holy Places of our salvation. [The holy Place of our salvation is the Word for the hour, which St. Peter called “the present Truth” (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7)].

However, living in a dignified manner in one’s own country is above all a fundamental human right: therefore, the conditions of peace and justice, which are necessary for the harmonious development of all those living in the region, should be promoted. Therefore all are called to give their personal contribution: the international community, by supporting a stable path, loyal and constructive, towards peace; those most prevalent religions in the region, in promoting the spiritual and cultural values that unite men and exclude any expression of violence. Christians will continue to contribute not only with the work of social promotion, such as institutes of education and health, but above all with the spirit of the Evangelical Beatitudes, which enliven the practice of forgiveness and reconciliation. In this commitment, they will always have the support of the entire Church, as is solemnly attested by the presence here of the Delegates of the Episcopacies of other continents.

Dear friends, let us entrust the workings of the Synodal Assembly for the Middle East to the many Saints of that blessed land; let us invoke upon it the constant protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary, so that the coming days of prayer, of reflection and of fraternal communion may be the harbingers of the good fruits for the present and for the future of the beloved Middle Eastern populations. To them we address a hopeful greeting with all our heart: ‘Peace to you, peace to your family, peace to all that is yours!’ (I Samuel 25:6). . .

Most of the North American participants are bishops of the Eastern Catholic Churches: Melkite, Maronite, Chaldean, Syrian, Armenian or Coptic. . .

Comment: Our Israeli friend Barry Chamish writes: “In short, and this did not take great analytic powers, the Pope has announced that Israel doesn’t exist. It’s just a question of time and “mediation” until Israel realizes this. Then those pesky Jews will covert to “Jesus Christ and the Church.” Unless I misread his Mass, the pope actually said that, though claiming he was referring not to Jews but to salvation. [Jewry will not convert to Jesus Christ but will convert to Judaeo-Catholicism, a religion of their device to destroy Messianic faith (Daniel 9:27; 11:32-35; 12:10; Revelation 13:4-10)].

A major planner of this synod has been at the head of the destroy-Israel movement for two decades, David Jaeger. While Oslo was being negotiated in 1994, another part of the “peace” agreement was also being negotiated; The Vatican-Israel Treaty. In fact, Oslo and Vatican were being negotiated together and for the same destructive purposes. The Israeli negotiators of the Vatican deal were [Sir] Shimon Peres (Szymon Perski) [Knight Commander in the Order of St. Michael and St. George] and Yossi Beilin. The Vatican’s chief negotiator was Father David Jaeger”:

Temple Mount Yes, Mount Sinai No

January 19, 2006 — Dr. David Jaeger, the Vatican’s legal advisor in negotiations with Israel, presented an interesting fact pertaining to the status of holy sites: According to the United Nations resolution on November 29, 1947, Jerusalem is considered a “corpus separatum” that belongs neither to the Jewish or Palestinian state. Therefore, the Jordanian occupation of Jerusalem after the Israeli War of Independence was considered, like the Israeli occupation after the Six-Day War, to be “illegal.”

As far as international law is concerned, the status of Jerusalem has not changed since 1947, and, therefore, according to Jaeger, Israel and the Palestinian Authority cannot achieve a bilateral agreement concerning the status of Jerusalem. Israel cannot “give” the Old City to the PA because, according to international law, Israel does not have legal authority over Jerusalem.

And today . . .

Are Christians leaving the Middle East?

March 12, 2008 — The Reuters news agency on Thursday, October 7, ran an interview with Franciscan Father David Jaeger, a convert from Judaism who became a Roman Catholic priest in 1986, and who is a respected canon lawyer. He was part of the Vatican team that negotiated diplomatic relations with Israel in 1994 and is part of the Vatican team that is still ironing out the details of that accord. . .

What do you expect from the synod?

Father David Jaeger: I think it is intended to be a very significant step forward in the development of the witness of the Church in the Middle East. . . I don’t think people in the West appreciate to what extent the thematics of the Synod are totally new to so much of the Church in the Middle East. Religious freedom some decades ago was not even a known concept. It had never been experienced in 13 centuries [i.e. since the rise of Islam]. It had always been presupposed that it could not be attained. . .

The whole discussion of the civic duty of the Christian, the Christian as citizen, the Christian communities as actors in the national lives of the countries where they live, this is totally new for the region as a whole. For 13 centuries, Christians in the Middle East had been made to live strictly in kinds of socio-political ghettos, not physical ones necessarily, but socio-political and legal ones, and it was a given that general society was something else, in which as Christians they had no part. Maybe individuals did manage to insert themselves into politics in different countries, of course, but that the idea that as a Christian, as a Christian community, you had to participate in the formation of a national culture, in the development of the national political culture too, these are all new insights in that region. These are all (examples) of Vatican II coming finally to fruition in that region too, so it is a very exiting moment for the Church.

Do you fear that Israel may become the whipping boy at the synod?

Father Jaeger: I reject this whole way of looking at the Synod. The Synod is not there to take positions on any political questions, for or against any country. The Church is not there for that in the first place, least of all the Holy See. The Holy See and the assemblies it convenes, such as the Synod, and the pronouncements of the Pope do not intervene, by their very nature, in temporal disputes between nations and states. They give moral judgments on the moral dimensions of temporal issues, in the name of God. Full story: peroforum.com

Comment: Barry Chamish comments: And what is God’s judgement? Well strangely, it’s the same as the Vatican’s. Israel is not in the same theocratic ballpark.

Peres supports ‘100 percent’ Sarkozy’s plan for Mediterranean Union

March 12, 2008 — “I support 100 percent the plan,” Peres, who is on a five-day state visit to France, said in an interview with French radio Europe 1.

“The entire (Israeli) government is in favour of Sarkozy’s initiative of course,” he added. “North Europe countries, the Maghreb countries in the south and the Arab countries in the middle, why not cooperate on what is possible?” he asked, recalling that Europe started with a union on coal and steel. . . Ahead of a EU summit meeting at the end of this week, France and Germany settled their differences over President Sarkozy’s plan to create the EU-Mediterranean new forum… German Chancellor Angela Merkel forced Sarkozy last week to open up the club to all 27 EU states. . .

Comment: Barry Chamish: The MU was hatched with President Peres, speaking of all Israelis’ enthusiastic support. But current prime minister Netanyahu is right on board, vowing to meet the actor assigned the part of Palestinian president, Mahmud Abbas, in Paris, a month before the MU meet, to sort through details. You see, until the US mid-term elections are finished, five days before the MU conference, President Obama dares not lift the whip to Israel. So Netanyahu is building and Abbas is stalling. It is up to the MU to handle the flogging:

[Jewish] French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner and Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Moratinos are to arrive in Israel Sunday to move ahead [Jewish] President Nicolas Sarkozy’s idea of a summit in Paris later this month between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

French, Spanish Foreign Ministers heading to Israel to push Sarkozy’s Peace Summit

October 7, 2010 — French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner and Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Moratinos are to arrive in Israel Sunday to move ahead President Nicolas Sarkozy’s idea of a summit in Paris later this month between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

According to French diplomats and officials in Netanyahu’s bureau, the two leaders have expressed willingness to take part in a summit, planned for October 21. However, implementation would depend on the decision of the Arab League summit on Friday and on a solution to the crisis over the end of the construction freeze in the settlements

A senior Israeli official who is knowledgeable about preparations for the summit said that the American response to Sarkozy’s idea was cool. “Clinton did not say no, but also did not respond in the affirmative,” the official said.

Comment: Barry Chamish asks, “Guess who’s coming to Barcelona? Why it’s Pope Ratzinger of the Wermacht. And the celebrations in Barcelona have just begun for him”:

Founder: Mideast Reconciliation is Sign of New Era

Barcelona, October 5, 2010 — The founder of the Community of Sant’Egidio is affirming that although reconciliation in the Middle East is difficult, once accomplished it will be a sign of a new era.

Andrea Riccardi stated this at the 25th International Meeting of Prayer for Peace, an annual gathering held as a continuation of the first interreligious and intercultural meeting called in 1986 in Assisi by Pope John Paul II.
The three-day meeting, promoted by the Sant’Egidio Community, ended today in Barcelona. This year’s event focused in a particular way on the situation in the Middle East, with the theme “Coexistence in a Time of Crisis: Family of Peoples, Family of God”. . .

The meeting began on Sunday morning with a Mass presided over by the archbishop of Barcelona, Cardinal Lluís Martínez Sistach. . . During the Mass, a message from Benedict XVI to the meeting participants was read. Cardinal Sistach noted that this global summit of religions and cultures is tied to the visit the Pontiff will make to Barcelona next month. In a press conference preceding the peace gathering, the cardinal affirmed, “Meeting here during these days is a family of peoples, which is the family of God, and it is something much desired by Benedict XVI, as is the dialogue between religions.” Full story: zenit.org

Comment: Barry Chamish: With the MU composed of five Catholic states and five Muslim nations, the odds are stacked a bit heavily against [nuclear-armed] Israel. To usher in the MU conference, look what a nice thing Spain and its king, Juan Carlos, has done for the Palestinians. For those who find significance in dates, November 20/10 will be the 35th anniversary of [Jewish] General Franco’s death, followed by Prince Juan Carlos becoming the King of Spain, and thereby King of Jerusalem:

Spain upgrades Palestinian Mission

Madrid, September 10, 2010 — Spain’s government said Friday it plans to upgrade the Palestinian diplomatic mission in Madrid due to the prospect of an eventual “creation and recognition of a Palestinian state.” The “General Delegation of Palestine” that has been in the Spanish capital since 1986 will henceforth be called the “Palestine Diplomatic Mission,” the foreign ministry said in a statement. It said the head of the mission will have the status of ambassador, and will be formally accredited in a ceremony by King Juan Carlos. Spain said the decision “reaffirms the friendship and solidarity that unites the Spanish people and the Palestinian people.” Full story: spacewar.com

Comment: King Juan Carlos has the title King of Jerusalem, Defender of the Holy Catholic Land Interests, whereby he is king not only of the Israelis but also of the Palestinians.

Barry Chamish comments: I have found only one pro-Israel source that was outraged by Spain unilaterally recognizing the new state of Palestine:

Spain Recognizes Non-Existent Palestinian State

September 7, 2010 — “Today, Foreign Minister Moratinos, has announced that Spain will behave diplomatically as if The Palestinian Authority was the government of The Palestinian State, its mission in Madrid being given diplomatic status of an Embassy as well as The Consulate in East Jerusalem, that from today will be a Spanish Embassy. He will encourage others to follow in preparation for the coming declaration of independence.”

We have been keeping you informed of the growing movement to legitimize a Palestinian State outside the normal international framework of the creation of a State. Spain’s action is a big step toward establishing such an entity. It completely sidelines Israel on this issue, so it is not dependent on Israel’s approval. By ignoring Israel it sets the stage for the international community to recognize a Palestinian State along the 1967 boundaries. The Palestinians do not have to agree to anything to get this “prize.” Therefore their demands for the so called right of return, their demands for Jerusalem to be their capital, and their refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish State will be granted to them and they will be asked for nothing in return.

Spain, as a major state in the European Union, is providing political cover for several other states that are vehement opponents of Israel. This development is a very serious matter. Full story: onejerusalem.org

Comment: This was decided on November 29, 1947 by UN Resolution 181; should the Palestinians recognize Israel as a ‘Jewish’ state they will deny the lawful owners and original residents of that stolen land the right to return, reclaim their property, obtain reparations, and resettle.

Barry Chamish: And now all the pieces are in place for the checkmate of Israel next month in Barcelona. As for the Jews who will lose their homes and sovereignty. . . they’re too busy blaming Arabs and Iran to bother noticing who really controls Israel’s destiny. Or they think, it’ll be okay, God will intervene. They don’t see the essential message of their Torah. God does not intervene, He helps.

Press Conference: President of Spain & Prime Minister of the Palestinian National Authority

September 14, 2010 — President of the Government: This is our opinion as the Government of Spain, and this is the opinion that we are going to convey to the European institutions, and of course to the North American Administration and that we have conveyed to the Palestinian Authority. The Union for the Mediterranean Summit will be held. . . for those members of the Union for the Mediterranean, the parties and countries that form a part of this important forum that can contribute to the peace process.

ISSN 1442-8660

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.

Your effectual, fervent prayer is requested for Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, who has been sentenced to death, and for other believers imprisoned in Iran, bearing in mind this will be the experience of Christians in the ‘squeeze’ following the sinking of Los Angeles, as it was the plight of the early Christians.

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


Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani sentenced to Death

October 4, 2010 — Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani was arrested on October 13, 2009 for protesting the imposition of Islamic education on Christian children in defiance of Iran’s Constitution and Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which states, “Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education given to their children.”

Our Brother passed by the Eleventh Chamber of the Assize Court on September 21/22 and was sentenced to death for apostasy, a verdict communicated verbally, according to his lawyer. About fourteen days remain in which he may appeal his sentence after which time he will be executed for converting from Islam to Christianity and leading Muslims to faith in Jesus Christ.

Please fast and pray that the Lord Jesus makes a way for his deliverance from this sentence. The believers in Iran are vigorously protesting this decision and hoping to have it brought before the Supreme Court of Iran. Our hope is in God and that He will provide and make a way for deliverance. We do all we can in the natural to help, but truly the Lord God is our hope. “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ”. Full story: presenttruthmn.com.

Comment: Other brethren are in custody including Brother Youcef’s wife, sentenced to life imprisonment for apostasy, and Pastor Behrouz Sadegh-Khandjan.

If you are acquainted with anyone who may be able to assist the plight of our Brethren, please approach them without delay. I believe these difficulties result in large measure from Iran’s just concerns over the agenda of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church and Zionism for global hegemony foretold by Daniel and Jesus, plus the predatory activity and lying propaganda against Iran and other Islamic states by the USA and other colonies of “the City of London.” Whereas Mr. Ahmadinejad boldly declares the truth and is lambasted by the corrupt controlled media, the best leaders money can buy declare themselves Christians when they are not and peddle cowardly lies on the world stage. Being unfamiliar with the Holy Bible and the present Truth of God’s Word for this hour, it is not surprising the Iranian Authorities cannot distinguish the Christian Church from her organizational impersonators, and are fear that our people, who are loyal Iranian citizens, may be spies with a hidden agenda.


Obama targets Iran for Human Rights Violations and shields Bush Officials for same GENOCIDALLY WORSE Abuses

October 1, 2010 — in a burst of stunning hypocrisy, President Barack Obama signed an executive order that imposes sanctions on Iran for human rights abuses and targets eight Iranian government and military officials who are blamed for the torture, abuse and murder of citizens who protested Iran’s 2009 presidential election.

Yet, President Obama has taken no action against US officials who under the direction of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld imprisoned without charge ‘war on terror’ detainees at secret black sites and at Guantanamo Bay. These prisoners also were subjected to beatings, solitary confinement and a denial of due process. They, too, were coerced into making false confessions under unbearable interrogations, which included torture, abuse, blackmail, and the threatening of family members.

President Obama has excused his failure to exact any accountability on complicit US officials by saying that he preferred ‘to look forward, not backwards.’ It is apparently easier to look backwards in Iran and demand accountability than it is in Washington. . .Full story: truth-out.org.

Comment: Iran did not infect hundreds of her citizens with syphilis. America can ‘look backwards’ upon a history of unprovoked aggression, and duplicity around the world, including treachery against Iran.


Video: 9/11 Firefighters reveal Huge Explosions before Towers Collapsed

October 6, 2010 — After filing a lawsuit that prompted the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to release more than 3 terabytes of photographs and videos from their investigation into the collapse of the twin towers and WTC 7 on 9/11, the International Center for 9/11 Studies obtained evidence, in addition to the firefighter tapes, that suggests NIST edited several videos of the collapse of Building 7 in order to hide evidence of a controlled implosion. . .

The International Center for 9/11 Studies is still in the process of reviewing over 300 DVDs along with several external HDDs that contain a plethora of unseen photographs and video footage from ground zero. Judging by the small amount of damning footage already released, it’s highly probable this data will provide a myriad of new contradictions both to the official 9/11 story and NIST’s own investigation into the collapse of the three buildings. . .

Michelangelo hid Anatomy Lesson in the Sistine Chapel

Sistine chapelJuly 19, 2010 — Detailed analysis of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescoes reveals a secret that’s been hidden for 500 years: an image of the human brainstem in a panel showing God at the beginning of Creation, according to an article in the May issue of Neurosurgery, official journal of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons. . . “We propose that Michelangelo, a deeply religious man and an accomplished anatomist, intended to enhance the meaning of this iconographically critical panel and possibly document his anatomic accomplishments by concealing this sophisticated neuroanatomic rendering within the image of God,” write medical illustrator Ian Suk, BSc, BMC, and neurosurgeon Rafael Tamargo, MD, of The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore.

Image of Brainstem Concealed in Panel Showing Separation of Light from Darkness:

The “concealed neuroanatomy” is found in Michelangelo’s painting of the Separation of Light from Darkness, one of a series of nine Sistine Chapel panels showing scenes from the Book of Genesis. According to Suk and Tamargo, “anatomically correct ventral [front] depiction” of the brainstem can be seen in God’s neck. . . Suk and Tamargo aren’t the first to suggest that Michelangelo included images of the brain in his Sistine Chapel frescoes. A previous researcher found an outline of the brain embedded in the famous panel depicting the Creation of Adam. . . Full story: yubanet.com

A Brief History of Khazars in the ‘Goldene Medin’

September 8, 2010 — “The Khazars—or Ashkenazis (Hebrew for German) how they call themselves today—are actually the descendants of ethnic Turk tribes that entered Europe as part of Attila’s hordes and their Germanic rape victims. For speed and logistical reasons they couldn’t bring their women along, all the way from Mongolia, and had to ‘source’ them locally, usually by killing everybody else in the tribe.

Given how busy those Huns/Khazars were raping and pillaging, the fruits of those rapes ended up speaking Yiddish, a medieval Germanic dialect mixed with Turkish elements, and weren’t too attached to the traditional Hun/Khazar phallus cult, although some remnants of that obsession with the male genital can still be seen today in Ashkenazi subculture, especially Ashkenazi dominated pornography and male ‘enhancement’ products. Eventually, the Huns/Khazars converted to Talmudism, because that creed was far more palatable to both their Christian and Muslim neighbours, at a time when the Khazars were dominating the Eastern European part of the ancient silk road” (Andrew Winkler).

“Never in the history of our people have we been so safe and so successful and so well integrated as we are in the United States. The Golden Age in Spain had nothing on the 350 years we have spent in America. This is in fact, as our grandparents said, the ‘goldene Medin’ (the golden land)” (JINSA).

Years ago Benjamin Freedman said, “They rule America as monarchs.” “They” are the reason Sharon could boast, “We control America and they know it.” But most Americans do not know it. Just who are “they” and where did “they” come from? That is the purpose of this article . . . Full story: thepeoplesvoice.org


Dear Gentle Reader

How well do you understand the Bolshevik Revolution?

“The First World War and the Second World War can be seen as part of a long-range human drama with its roots a long way back in history but we are yet to experience the conclusion.” So the worst is still ahead.

For those who are somewhat more politically aware, I have said several times that the conclusion will be worse than the Bolshevik Revolution. So it was with great interest that I read in a recent book: “Unrelated Events or Crystallised Policy,” a statement by Sir James Goldsmith that the future would bring “far worse global consequences than the Bolshevik Revolution. . .”

Long before the word Bolshevik came into vogue, our ancestors were familiar with the term World Revolutionary Movement (WRM). The word ‘Bolshevik’ is a simple Russian word meaning ‘majority,’ but was not acceptable as a title for a political programme intended to be expanded across Europe. So in the early 20’s it was changed to ‘Communism’. But neither was the word ‘communism’ acceptable when it began to be understood as a ruthless political force in the USSR. So the ‘softer’ word ‘socialism’ was used to mislead the Western Nations.

[The Jew Winston Churchill wrote: “This movement is not new. From the days of Spartacus (Weishaupt) to those of Karl Marx (Moses Mordecai Levi), and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany) and Emma Goldman (United States), this world conspiracy for the overthrow of civilisation and for the reconstruction of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence and impossible equality, has been steadily growing” (The
Illustrated Sunday Herald, February 8, 1920)].

However the idea of socialism was not acceptable to the conservative political mind, so once again it was changed to a word that is almost universally accepted. That word is Democracy, but not quite totally accepted by all because certain deluded subversive forces want to change the word to ‘REPUBLIC’ not knowing that this means total subservience as a ‘province’ of the United Nations. Sir James made his fortune of Billions from the ‘Globalization’ programme. Realising the ultimate danger, he wrote a book: “The Trap” in which he repudiated the GATT Plan—now the World Trade Organization (WTO). Not only did he write a book, but he also formed a Political Party in Britain. Spending over 40 million pounds of his private fortune, he stood a number of candidates in the last election. Not one was elected to Parliament. Sir James Goldsmith died suddenly of a heart attack not long after.

The speech by one candidate, R. Atkinson entitled, “British Law has been Suspended by the European Union” is essential information. When the implications of this ‘long range drama’ dawns on the ‘average Joe Blow,’ his political apathy will last as long as a snow-flake in hell.

In a December 6, 1993 Washington Times interview, Anglo-French financier Sir James Goldsmith, warned that GATT (i.e. the WTO) would mean social upheaval and political instability bringing far worse global consequences than the Bolshevik Revolution.

Here in part, are Goldsmith’s highly provocative remarks:

“Global free trade will force the poor of the rich countries to subsidise the rich in the poor countries. What GATT means is that our national wealth, accumulated over centuries, will be transferred from a developed country like Britain . . . to developing countries like China, now building its first ocean-going navy in 500 years. China, with its 1.2 billion people, three Indochinese states with 900 million, the former Soviet republics, with some 300 million, and many more can supply skilled labour for a fraction of Western costs. Five dollars in China is the equivalent of a $100 wage in Europe.

It is quite amazing that GATT is sowing the seeds for global social upheaval and that it is not even the subject of debate in America . . . If the masses understood the truth about GATT; there would be blood in the streets of many capitals. A healthy national economy has to produce a large part of its own needs. It cannot simply import what it needs and use its labour force to provide services for other countries.

We have to rethink from top to bottom why we have elevated global free trade to the status of sacred cow, or moral dogma. It is a fatally flawed concept that will impoverish and destabilize the industrialized world while cruelly ravaging the Third World”.

Debt is the engine driving the world into an economic financial dictatorship. A situation anticipated by Baron Rothschild over 200 years ago when he said: “Permit me to issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.” So in real terms, the Baron was not merely ‘above the law,’ he was the law!

Today, the entire money supply (with the exception of a very small part) exists as a debt to the Banking Industry. Governments are in debt bondage to the ‘money power.’ The Media acts as a servant to the money power by telling us that (faulty) government financial policy is ‘democracy in action.’ Revealed financial statistics shows that the world economy is in a more perilous position today than the crash of 1929 when a vast number of people were ruined by the loss of their investments. In actual fact, the ‘wealth’ was not lost, but ‘transferred’ to a much smaller number of people (insiders) who knew in advance
how to exploit the situation.

Two new factors have been introduced into the present ‘ball-game’ that could make the ’29 crash pale into insignificance. Equity borrowing on property and invested in the ‘market’ is much higher than ’29. The only reason the share market remains buoyant is because the USA bombed Baghdad some time ago giving a boost to shares in the Military Industrial complex of companies followed by the President’s somewhat aggressive and war-like attitude to several nations including Red China.

Speculation, (gambling) on the Share Market has reached an all time high. Wall Street is more over-valued than at any time in the past 150 years. Today, the average citizen is likely to hold shares either directly or indirectly through superannuation and insurance funds. Many citizens have invested in private pensions, endowment policies and private health care because they can see the writing on the wall for the welfare state.

They now find themselves gambling in capitalism’s largest casino!

A second factor that did not exist at the time of the 1929 crash is the plastic card. Massive consumer spending has been introduced to a younger generation through the convenience of ‘credit-card-debt.’ In percentage terms, total American debt jumped from 85% of personal income in 1992 to 103% in 1999 and will soon reach crisis point. Public memory is still too vivid for the ‘insiders’ to allow another 1929 type crash because there would be blood on the streetstheir blood! What we are more likely to see is a gradual increase in personal and corporate bankruptcy, an increase in all kinds of debt, a gradual but consistent increase in taxation, an increase in working hours with less job security, many more factory closures and sackings of the workers and many more mergers and ‘take-overs.’ In other words, a gradual slide into the New World Order and then Goldsmith might be right when he predicts “blood on the streets.” Perhaps our blood? (Thomas L. Fielder, Candle of Light, p. 13-15).

Comment: Now you know our politicians represent and serve the Illuminati in their program of spreading “democracy” out of the barrel of a gun. The political propaganda is cast in such a way as to attract the masses who in general have a lower level of intellectual capacity, and fail to see that under party politics there can be no democracy or representation of the will of the majority. Members of a party are required to give their total loyalty to the party which cannot co-exist with their loyalty to the nation as the parties are answerable to the banksters who are themselves bound to the protocols of the Illuminati.

An article in the Bankers Magazine (August 26, 1924) stated, “Capital must protect itself in every possible manner by combination and legislation. Debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages must be foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile and more easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers.

This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of capital to govern the world. By dividing the voters through the political party system we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus, by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished. . .”

John Kenneth Galbraith wrote, “By a continuing process of inflation, Governments can confiscate secretly and unobserved an important part of the wealth of their nation. There is no subtler, no surer means of overthrowing the existing basis of society, than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose”.

So according to Keynes, less than 300 people in the United States understand Keynesian Economics.

To understand the problem you must familiarize yourself with the blueprint for Lucifer’s totalitarian one world government, The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, and expose them to help others to understand.


In the House of My Friends

Matthew 23:37-38, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who murders the prophets and stones those sent to you. How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not! Behold, your house is left to you forsaken and desolate”.

Jerusalem’s Temple was no longer the house of God whom they had rejected and would crucify without the City, it was now “the Jews’ house,” forsaken of God and desolate. The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form in 1963 and history repeated when the world church system rejected He who is the Word and held to its substitute creed and ritual causing people to “crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh” as He stands without the church knocking on the door pledging, “If any individual receives My Word for this hour, and opens the door to his heart, I will come in to him, and fellowship with him, and he with Me”.

Let us not neglect our church meetings as some do, but encourage one another, and so much the more as you see the day approaching, but congregational fellowship if it is available, is a secondary bonus. Respond to Christ’s invitation and develop your personal fellowship with Him in the unity of the faith.

Brother Branham’s Message restored the apostolic faith, finished the mystery of God and introduced the second or ‘parousia’ Coming of the fullness of the Word (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; I Corinthians 13:10; I Thessalonians 4:14-16; Revelation 10:1-7). God cannot reveal more grace than the perfect interpretation of the fullness of His Word in the Voices of the Seven Thunders. When the world church system refused His Message of grace by human reasoning against the revelation it took the irrevocable mark of the beast and is antichrist; only judgment remains. Hence for the past forty-seven years Christ has been calling the wise and foolish virgin out from the Roman and (once) Protestant churches into “the unity of the faith”—unity, not with a human congregation, but with Himself—for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. Any individual, even a Jehovah Witness (so-called), who rejects this call has committed the unforgivable sin: his name is blotted from the Book of Life, his ear is marked with an awl, and he can never hear the Word of God again (Exodus 21:6; Matthew 12:32; John 3:18; Titus 3:9-11; Hebrews 6:4-8).

Brother Branham said, “The mere association of kindhearted people with the true believer might well bring death in return for their kindness” (An exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 116:1). If they heard and rejected his Message they have refused the Holy Spirit and will be cast into outer darkness (Hebrews 6:4-8). This simple Message delivered in humility by a vindicated prophet “proclaimed the day of vengeance of our God” and indicted the whole world while providing a way of escape for His elect (Isaiah 61:2; Malachi 4:1-3; Matthew 24:22). In the days of Noah, Enoch was elect and translated, five non-elect were “saved” through the tribulation of the Flood, while seven billions perished. Only two of the six hundred thousand adult men who followed Moses in the exodus entered into the Promised Land; the rest were blotted from the Book of Life and lost (Exodus 32:33; John 6:49). Jesus prophesied that in the tribulation following the translation of Christ’s end-time Bride “the non-elect will either retain their salvation in martyrdom for the Word of God, or they will worship the beast and be lost” (Revelation 13).

The Spirit of God in Christ indicted the Jewish denominations as hypocrites, children of hell, and offspring of the Serpent who slew Abel and the succeeding prophets (Matthew 23). We live in a serious time, we are the last generation. Jesus said, “My sheep receive My Word, a stranger they will NOT follow” (John 10:1-5). Conversely, those who are NOT His “sheep” will not and CANNOT receive His Word. If one to whom you are testifying cannot receive the revelation of the true oneness of the godhead, Scriptural water baptism and the original sin, you know the election is off, just walk away from them, otherwise their association with you might well bring them spiritual death (Exodus 32:33; Titus 3:9-11).

The Spirit of God in William Branham revealed “Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, and today, and forever . . . as it was in the days of Lot” (Hebrews 13:8; Luke 17:28-30). It indicted the Gentile denominations who are crucifying the fullness of the Word spiritually by the same spirit that caused Israel to crucify It physically. They could not be indicted so long as the Bible was sealed and Christ was mediating for the ignorance of PART-Word, but when the Seals were opened, Christ swore, “that there should be time [or delay for intercession] no longer” and thereafter His permissive will was replaced by His perfect will (Revelation 10:6).

After Israel as a nation came to the place of no more repentance, the Gospel traveled from Jerusalem in the East, to Europe, England and finally to the United States in the West, which as a nation came to the place of no more repentance in 1956/7 when it rejected the jubilee of the Laodicean Church Age. Seven years later Brother Branham’s Message restored the apostolic faith and introduced the S_O_N-Light to ripen the evening offering of God’s spotless Alpha Bride (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:27; Revelation 18:1). Christ and the Church Age saints are waiting for the last elect to come into the Body, then the Gentile dispensation will end with a cataclysmic disruption of nature in heaven and earth (Hebrews 11:39-40).

Our Gentile civilization has reached its end with a repetition of the same sins that brought global destruction in the days of the Flood. Matthew 24:37, “As were the days of Noah, so will the ‘parousia’ Coming of the Son of man be.” In those days the Sons of God, Adam’s descendents, lusted for Cain’s pretty daughters, miscegenating with whom they chose; a repetition of the original sin, which brought genocide to Adam’s race, and is accursed of God. Today the best politicians money can buy beat their chests in obedience to the criminal UN and foster this sin under the euphemism “multiculturalism.” Such hybreeding multiplied a race of physical and intellectually evil and amoral giants that is accursed of God who set them at enmity with Adam’s race (Genesis 3:15). Through them earth was morally corrupt and filled with violence, and men’s thoughts were continually evil. God determined to cleanse earth by means of a flood and chose Noah for the integrity of his genealogy, moral character and faith to repopulate the earth (Genesis 6:1-13). FDR assured us, “if something happens in politics, you can bet it was planned that way”! And who can deny civilization has retreated from its slow upward climb and reverted to barbarism on an increasing scale?

Noah preached repentance and deliverance for a hundred and twenty years but the unbelieving world of his day, like the unbelieving world of today, lived as if there would be no tomorrow until the day when Noah entered the ark, and did not understand until the deluge came and swept them all away. So will it be when the earthquake sinks Los Angeles, and when nuclear fire annihilates North America and ignites the oceans.

Homosexuality, the besetting sin for which God burned Sodom and the Gentile cities on the plain, is pandemic, open, and promoted in schools: “Healthy Harold and the Life Education Van visited the [local infants] school recently. The children attended workshops on healthy lifestyles and drug education delivered by the traveling teacher.” Jesus said, “As it was in the days of Lot, people went about their daily business—eating and drinking, buying and selling, farming and building—until the morning Lot went out of Sodom. Then fire and brimstone rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. So will it be on the day when the Son of man is revealed” (Genesis 18; Luke 17:28-30). And it is so.

As it was in the days of Lot, three ministers have visited this end-time generation, Billy Graham, Oral Roberts and William Branham. Two ministered to the non-elect in Sodom; the one who remained with Abraham’s elect and called-out group veiled the Word and was known by the Messianic sign: discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).

Deuteronomy 16:5-6, “You may not offer the Passover sacrifice within any of the towns which the Lord your God gives you; but at the place which the Lord your God will choose as the dwelling place for His Name, there you shall offer the Passover sacrifice at sundown, at the time you came out of Egypt.” Hence every adult male Israelite was bound to appear at the Temple three times in the years for the feasts of Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles, because it was at Jerusalem He chose to place His Name and there He met all Israel under the blood of the Lamb.

At a certain Passover the real Lamb came to Jerusalem and Israel crucified the One who delivered them from Egypt. Today the one place the Lord will meet the worshipper is under the Blood of that Lamb, and the one way to come under the Blood is by the Word for your day and hour. The Lutheran, Presbyterian and Anglican saints were born-again between 1520 and 1750 and came under the Blood by the Word for their day. The elect Methodists, Baptists, Nazarene and Pilgrim Holiness came under the Blood between 1750 and 1906 and were born-again by the Word for their day, and the saints from the Assemblies of God, Church of God, Four Square and United Pentecostal groups came under the Blood between 1906 and 1963 by the Word for their day.

In any of the dispensations, the only way to come under the Blood of Christ, which is to be born-again, was to recognize your day and it’s Message and walk in the Light of the present Truth (I John 1:7; II Peter 1:12). The Voice of God is a thunder (II Samuel 22:14; John 12:29), and during the Church Ages His Word thundered through seven angels: Paul, Irenaeus, St. Martin, St. Columba, Martin Luther, John Wesley and William Branham, whose Messages brought eternal Life to the elect of their day, since the Word of God is Spirit in a form we can receive by faith.

Because of infirmity these men died and were not able to fully reveal the depth of their Messages, leaving a plethora of “loose ends.” And a great deal of Truth was lost between dispensations as churches denominated and compromised the Truth with human reasoning by refusing to recognize the subsequent Move of the Spirit, and prevented their people from walking in the Light as God continued to unfold it.

“But in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel, [William Branham], when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He has [already] declared to His servants the prophets” (Revelation 10:7). He gathered up all of these loose ends of unfinished doctrine declared by the prophets before him in order to reveal the fullness of the Word and the hidden mysteries to bring us into the unity of the faith, to prepare us for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. These unwritten mysteries of the Voices of the Seven Thunders are the Seven Seals that bound the Book from our understanding. The revelation of the Seven Thunders separate the end-time Bride from the Pentecostal saints and the non-elect world for rapturing faith.

Since the revelation of the Seals was the “midnight cry” of Matthew 25:6, which is the “Shout” of I Thessalonians 4:16 that was confirmed by the heavenly Voice of Revelation 18:4, “You may not offer worship within any of the Church Age rests which the Lord your God gives you; but at the place which the Lord your God will choose as the dwelling place for His Name, [that is, in Christ, the fullness of the Word with the Token on display], there you shall offer the Passover sacrifice at sundown” (Deuteronomy 16:5-6; Zechariah 14:7).

Many who regard themselves as Christians are not looking for a prophet and do not believe in the rapture, while those who do have no idea it has been in PROCESS for the past forty-seven years. The Seals are open and the loose ends of unfinished doctrine gathered to transform partial revelation to a clear vision of the fullness of the Word, yet our denominational friends say, “It doesn’t make any difference, so long as I love the Lord”.

That’s what Satan told Eve, “It doesn’t make any difference so long as you love the Lord. Surely, God is a good God; He loves us all”.

But He does not love us all”! So the question is, “Does God love you? (II Thessalonians 2:10-12).

He is a good God, but being good, He has to be just. There is no goodness without justice; no justice without law, and no law without penalty. Because God is just His judgment could not be forthcoming so long as He held the world in a measure of ignorance while the Bible was sealed. Since all Seven Church Ages of PART-Word and Mediation for ignorance are fulfilled, and Christ the mystery of God was revealed in March, 1963, we live in the hour of judgment, and when the last elect has been baptized into Christ, God will smite the earth with a curse (Revelation 10:1-7; Malachi 4:6).

In honour of the faith of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, God revealed His Word to the nation of the Patriarchs of Israel with whom He established His Covenant as a people separated to Him such that they would evangelize the nations by “living the Life,” causing them to ask the reason of their blessedness and the hope that is in them, provoking them to jealousy and conversion as Moses had prophesied the time would come when God’s blessings upon Gentiles in Christ would provoke Israel to jealousy (Deuteronomy 32:21; Romans 10:19-21; 11:7, 11; I Peter 3:15). The Northern kingdom of Israel was terminated because of apostasy and her subjects dispersed, and the Southern kingdom of Judah was chastised eighty-six years under the Servitude, Captivity and Desolations. However, the bulk of that nation chosen to receive the revealed Word remained in Babylon where they built an entirely new system of religious belief upon the Slave-Trading Codes of ancient Babylon, possibly reaching back to Nimrod himself, a body of laws which evade whilst feigning to observe the teachings of Moses and the prophets. These people became known as the Pharisees, and their laws were codified as the Talmud, which Jesus said “makes the Word of God of no effect” (Matthew 15:1-9).

In the fullness of time the Lord God revealed Himself in virgin-born flesh in order that He could fulfil the part of Israel’s KINSMAN Redeemer, and as a Man was the begotten only Son of God. Like John the Baptist and the former prophets, He indicted the Israelites of unbelief and for perverting the revealed Word of God and “proclaimed the acceptable day of the Lord” or Pentecostal Jubilee in accordance with the Law and the prophets. And like the theocracy before her, after about three hundred years the nominally Christian church adopted the Babylonian religion hybrid with a Talmudic impersonation of the Israelitish Temple worship veiled behind the Names of Jesus and the departed saints. This Universal Judaeo-Roman or Catholic church organized at the First Nicea Council in AD325. Like Pharisaism the false church persecuted unto death any who disagreed with her dogmas. This led to the Dark Ages which were terminated by the Light of the Reformation. But from the days of Martin Luther, Jews meddled with the Reformation of their Roman Catholic system of false worship until today people are absolutely confused by conflicting denominational creeds and Jewish fables. And the revelation of the Seven Seals has indicted ministers and students of seminary theology for ignorantly worshipping in vain. They can no longer hide behind denominational walled cities and Christ’s mediation, and unless they repent and are born-again by the present Truth, they will be guilty of crucifying the Son of God in the house of His (so-called Christian) friends.

Once upon a time men could pass out tracts, plead the Blood of the Lamb and His intercession for ignorance; now they must live the Life of Christ with the Token of His Life on display for a life lived by the Word is the Word expressed.

Before I came to the Lord I recall attending a Charismatic meeting one Saturday morning in perhaps 1978 where a man and his wife were prophesying in tongues and interpreting. The gist of the Message was, “Come out of Babylon. The walls are crumbling, the walls are crumbling. Hurry, do not delay for an instant to come out of your walled cities. For why will you perish. This will be a quick work and I will never pass this way again”.

The people thought this indicated a mighty outpouring of the Spirit that would unite an inter-denominational revival in Hong Kong. By the grace of God He showed me that the revival in this day is only in the heart of His Bride.

When people deny the vindicated and manifested Son of God among them fulfilling what He promised He would do in this day they crucify Him to themselves afresh. Jesus said, “If I am not accomplishing the works of My Father, believe Me not. But if I do them, even though you do not believe Me, believe the works that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father” (John 10:37-38). And the Son of God or Holy Ghost sanctified the life of William Branham that He might manifest Himself though that sinner-saved-by-grace to fulfill the Word for this day and reveal “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever . . . as it was in the days of Lot” (Hebrews 13:8; Luke 17:28-30).

Jesus said, “He that believes on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and more works than these shall he do; because I go to My Father” (John 14:12). He did more works in William Branham’s ministry, yet scoffers ask “Where is the promise of His ‘parousia’ Coming” (II Peter 3:3-4)? And whereas Israel crucified Him on Calvary these reject God’s promised Word made manifest, and holding to their creeds, crucify Him afresh on the pulpit “in the house of His friends,” refusing and ridiculing the revealed, manifested Word sent to gather the churches together in the unity of the faith.

The natural types the Spiritual: whereas the children of Darkness have deceived the world with their lies about ‘peak’ oil they claim is produced by decomposing dinosaurs when it is in fact abionic mineral oil constantly being generated by nature, the Oil of the Spirit is likewise unlimited and free, but virgin, unadulterated full-strength regenerational quality Oil is found only in the present Truth of the Word of the hour. Having rejected God’s one provided way to this rich Gift, these men go to Interfaith, Charismatic, Ecumenical, World Council of Churches and similar earth-bound authorities “who sell, to buy for themselves.” This is the binding of the tares ready for the burning: the tares have their revival first (Matthew 13:30; 37-43). Jesus said they will not find Oil but join a centralized organization that kills dissenters (Matthew 25:8-13; Revelation 13:15-18).

Denominations cannot surrender their creeds anymore than a leopard can change his spots; God deals with individuals, not organizations; the wise and foolish virgin will come out from Babylon and her once Protestant harlot daughters. That is the Sign of Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming. When the fullness of the Word returned in the revelation of the Seven Seals the Laodiceans threw Him out of the Church. Oh, they love the historic Jesus their imagination, but they hate and have no time for Christ the Word who condemns them.

After a thousand years of warfare Russia was overcome by non-Semitic anti-Semitic self-styled Khazar Jews and Judaeo-Bolshevism because the Orthodox Catholic church had icons, ritual and a form of godliness but denied the power thereof. Thus Judaeo-Bolshevism became Judaeo-Communism, then Judaeo-Socialism; finally their Hegelian controlled two-party sham Democratic system has defeated the once Christian world and is now being imposed on the rest of humanity out of the barrel of a gun. It was devised by the accursed race John Hyrcanus assimilated with Judea where it denied the power of godliness and polluted the Law and the prophets with the Talmud, causing the Israelites to murder their Messiah (Matthew 15:9). Today the Christ-rejecting nominal Christian world has a form of godliness, and having turned from truth to fables, denies the power thereof and is overcome by the spirit of Laodicea, which means “rights of the people” or Judaeo-Communism. Brother Branham said Judaeo-Communism and Judaeo-Catholicism will unite together in apostasy and service to Lucifer, as they have “in the house of His friends”. nl653.htm

UN seeks Control of Planet’s Drinking Water

September 28, 2010 — The United Nations General Assembly is considering a historic resolution recognizing the human right to “safe and clean drinking water and sanitation” initiated by the Bolivian government. Other UN members have been consulted on the resolution and the final text is expected to be presented to the President of the General Assembly.

In a letter sent today to all UN Ambassadors and permanent missions, global water advocate and Blue Planet Project founder Maude Barlow urges a decisive and swift passage of the resolution. “This would be one of the most important things the UN has done since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” says Barlow, who chairs the boards of the Council of Canadians and Washington-based Food and Water Watch. In 2008/2009, Barlow served as Senior Advisor on Water to the 63rd President of the UN General Assembly.

Political strategist Mike Baker believes one of the most diabolical organizations in controlling the world’s resources, including water, is the much-touted Clinton Global Initiative, the brainchild of former President Bill Clinton, an unabashed Internationalist.

Then there’s Obama’s science ‘czar,’ John Holdren, who was also an attendee at Clinton’s recent conference. Shortly after his confirmation as director of White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, it was revealed that Holdren was once a proponent of compulsory abortions and a ‘Planetary Regime’. And in 1977, he co-authored a book that proposed the use of totalitarian regimes to curb population growth and protect the environment including the planet’s water supply. . . Full story: newswithviews.com

Comment: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is, like The Convention on the Rights of the Child: The Making of a Deception and an Assault on Childhood, while the prospect of the criminal United Nations Organization controlling the planet’s clear drinking water will be bare-faced genocide.


Russian Orthodox say ‘No Breakthrough’ at Catholic-Orthodox Talks

September 29, 2010 — The Russian Orthodox Church said on Tuesday there was no ‘breakthrough’ at a Catholic-Orthodox theological dialogue meeting in Vienna last week that ended with reports of promising progress on the thorny issue of the role of the Catholic pope. . . The issue was the role the pope played in the millennium before the Great Schism of 1054. At the 2007 dialogue meeting in Ravenna, the Orthodox confirmed that the pope, as the bishop of Rome, was traditionally the first of the five ancient patriarchs. At the news conference in Vienna, the two delegation heads said that Catholics and Orthodox could eventually come to see themselves as ‘sister churches’ if they could agree to translate that traditional role of the pope into a modern understanding of how the churches related to each other.

Metropolitan Hilarion said: “For the Orthodox participants, it is clear that in the first millennium the jurisdiction of the bishop of Rome was exercised only in the West, while in the East, the territories were divided between four Patriarchs—those of Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch and Jerusalem”. . .

Archbishop Kurt Koch said that ‘unity without the Bishop of Rome is unimaginable. That’s because the issue of the Bishop of Rome is not just an organisational question, but also a theological one. The dialogue about just how this unity should be shaped must be continued intensively.’ That means there are still years of discussions ahead of these theologians, but it doesn’t seem to contradict their message that progress was made. . .

Ahmadinejad tells UN most blame US Government for 9/11

September 23, 2010 — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the United Nations Thursday most people believe the US government was behind the attacks of September 11, 2001, prompting the US delegation to leave the hall in protest. . . . Full story: reuters.com (i.e. Rothschild).

Comment: Mr. Ahmadinejad speaks truthfully as confirmed by a Zogby poll which states half of New Yorkers believe that the government was involved in 9/11. A Canadian poll says 63% believe that the US government was involved. In other polls 76% believe the government was involved and European polls show that two-thirds believe the same thing.

Besides which, Mr. Ahmadinejad’s remarks in the UN were substantiated by . . .

Government Insider says Bush Authorized 9/11 Attacks!

August 9, 2010 — Stanley Hilton, former senior advisor to Senator Bob Dole (R) is suing the US government, Bush, Condoleezza Rice, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Mueller, etc. for complicity in personally not only allowing 9/11 to happen but in ordering and carrying out 9/11: “Our case is alleging that Bush and his puppets Rice and Cheney and Mueller and Rumsfeld and so forth, Tenet, were all involved not only in aiding and abetting and allowing 9/11 to happen but in actually ordering it to happen. Bush personally ordered it to happen. We have some very incriminating documents as well as eye-witnesses, that Bush personally ordered this event to happen in order to gain political advantage, to pursue a bogus political agenda on behalf of the neocons and their deluded thinking in the Middle East. I also wanted to point out that, just quickly, I went to school with some of these neocons. At the University of Chicago, in the late 60s with Wolfowitz and Feith and several of the others and so I know these people personally. And we used to talk about this stuff all of the time. And I did my senior thesis on this very subject—how to turn the US into a presidential dictatorship by manufacturing a bogus Pearl Harbor event. So, technically this has been in the planning at least 35 years.”

“. . . some of these hijackers, at least some of them were on the payroll of the US government as undercover FBI, CIA, double agents. They are spying on Arab groups in the US. And all this led up to the effect that al Qaeda is a creation of the George Bush administration, basically. That the entity that he called al Qaeda is directly linked to George Bush. . .”

“. . . this was now without any doubt a government operation and that it amounts to the biggest act of treason and mass murder in American history. I mean George Bush makes Benedict Arnold look like a patriot. He makes Benedict Arnold look like George Washington. . .”

“Well, I think that’s why they want the Patriot Act to suppress political dissent. They have to, they’re anticipating, they are not dumb individuals. I know these people personally, Wolfowitz. These are criminal individuals but they are smart and so they anticipated political dissent. And that’s why, like the Nazis, their forebears, and their blood brothers, the Nazis and the Stalinists, they’re all for political repression. Every corrupt and criminal government has done this—they suppress their own people: Nazi Germany, Communist Russia, Mao Tse-Tung, that’s why we have the Patriot Act. So it’s hand in hand. They had it planned to go right up to September 11th, this was all part of the plan. You have to do it. It was part of my senior thesis. You must follow through the terrorists attacks with a political suppression mechanism in the law. And that’s why they want Patriot I and Patriot II and their plans are to continue launching more terrorist attacks to justify even more repression. The goal is to make this a one party dictatorship in this country, to pursue their dubious ends with their blood brothers like the Saudi Royal family. And also, historical blood brothers, such as the Nazi Germany and the Communist Russian. That’s the goal. . .” Full story: ascertainthetruth.com

Comment: These individuals, including the Saudi Royal Family are all self-styled Jews; Nazism and Communism are Jewish political devices, while freemason Mao Tse-Tung was beholden to the Rothschilds. Mr. Ahmadinejad speaks the truth.

Now, after nine years, more than 13,000 of the truly heroic firefighters, police, and other rescuers who were the first to rush to the scene of the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City on September 11, 2001, are still being treated for the serious injuries they received. They were exposed to a highly toxic mix of chemicals, jet fuel, asbestos, lead, glass fragments, and other debris that caused a wide range of respiratory, intestinal and mental health problems. Also exposed were nearly 53,000 other first responders. . . truth-out.org.


UN Fact-Finding Mission says Israelis “Executed” US Citizen Furkan Dogan

September 27, 2010 — The report of the fact-finding mission of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) on the Israeli attack on the Gaza flotilla released last week shows conclusively, for the first time, that US citizen Furkan Dogan and five Turkish citizens were murdered execution-style by Israeli commandos.

The report reveals that Dogan, the 19-year-old US citizen of Turkish descent, was filming with a small video camera on the top deck of the Mavi Marmara when he was shot twice in the head, once in the back and in the left leg and foot and that he was shot in the face at point blank range while lying on the ground. The report says Dogan had apparently been “lying on the deck in a conscious or semi-conscious, state for some time” before being shot in his face. The forensic evidence that establishes that fact is “tattooing around the wound in his face,” indicating that the shot was “delivered at point blank range.” The report describes the forensic evidence as showing that “the trajectory of the wound, from bottom to top, together with a vital abrasion to the left shoulder that could be consistent with the bullet exit point, is compatible with the shot being received while he was lying on the ground on his back.”

Based on both “forensic and firearm evidence,” the fact-finding panel concluded that Dogan’s killing and that of five Turkish citizens by the Israeli troops on the Mavi Marmari May 31 “can be characterized as extra-legal, arbitrary and summary executions.” (See Report Page 38, Section 170). The report confirmed what the Obama administration already knew from the autopsy report on Dogan, but the administration has remained silent about the killing of Dogan, which could be an extremely difficult political problem for the administration in its relations with Israel. . . Although the report’s revelations and conclusions about the killing of Dogan and the five other victims were widely reported in the Turkish media last week, not a single story on the report has appeared in US news media. . .

Censored Book on Afghan War Released

September 26, 2010 — Operation Dark Heart by former US intelligence officer Anthony Shaffer was to tell us what the Pentagon has tried to suppress—that top military brass missed the chance to end the war against the Taliban in Afghanistan.

In pulping the 10,000 first edition copies of the book, the Pentagon succeeded in keeping most of Shaffer’s revelations from the public . . . Lieutenant Colonel Anthony Shaffer was part of the ‘dark side of the force’ that operates outside the usual constraints of the military system. He led a group that called themselves the Jedi Knights and specialised in ‘black ops’ including ‘striking at the core of the Taliban’ inside Pakistan. . . Full story: oh-yay.com

“This Jezebel system, now blind spiritually (I’m saying) to the Word of God, joining themselves right into the Council of Churches. . . Everything, our great evangelical teaching, we have to forfeit that to be an organization. ‘Cause all organizations that isn’t 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, can be shot, as a federal offense. That’s right. I got the papers on it from Washington. See, see? You. . . 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 it quiet about it being the mark of the beast, but it’s late enough now till you can know it’s the truth. Uh-huh. See? It is. It’s exactly that.
Now, what has it done? It’s brought the church, stripped of its power, nothing but name; it pictures it exactly in Revelation 3, the Laodicea Church Age, rejected Christ, and on the outside. It’s exactly. Why? It did just exactly like its mother did, went back to the denominational. Pentecost, born out of denominational, born out of that, and as soon as they got a bunch of kids come in from some school, and they had to have seminaries and things to, instead of upper rooms. . . And now, many of the big churches, a man has to pass a psychiatrist’s test before he’s permitted to be an overseas missionary. The first church didn’t have to test, a psychiatrist’s test, but they had to go through the test of the Blood of Jesus Christ, what made the difference (Just Once More Lord, p. 10:52-53).


Judgment must begin at the House of God

Numerous prophecies of Scripture are suspended on a comma (,) as we see in Isaiah 61:1-2, “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me; because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the meek; He has sent Me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound [under “the curse of the Law” Galatians 3:13; Romans 7:14-8:9)]; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God”.

The Spirit of God in Christ “proclaimed the acceptable year of the Lord,” or Pentecostal Jubilee, which was the second exodus Israel rejected, having killed the Lamb of God, as by constant murmuring in unbelief their forefathers rejected God’s grace following the first exodus and came under “the Law of sin and death” which Covenant they forsook, even before Moses had descended the Mount, to worship the golden calf. After the comma Isaiah went on to prophesy “and [to proclaim] the day of vengeance of our God” with the Spirit of God in Brother Branham whose ministry “revealed the Son of man—Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Luke 17:28-30; Hebrews 13:8).

As natural Israel twice rejected God’s grace and His Pentecostal Jubilee, nominally Spiritual Israel, the church—including foolish virgin in the circle of this Message—is rejecting the grace of His second or ‘parousia’ Coming and their Pentecostal Jubilee in this day, and will either be purged from the Book of Life or purged of their unbelief through martyrdom for the Word of God in the soon-coming tribulation. For “the day of vengeance of our God [is] the great and dreadful day of the Lord” (Malachi 4:6). The prophet William Branham was the Elijah whose Message brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form through the revelation of the Seven Seals (I Corinthians 13:10; I Thessalonians 4:14-16; Revelation 10:1-7). The Spirit of Elijah in this day is Jesus Christ, the fullness of the Word who veiled Himself behind the flesh of this sinner-saved-by-grace and revealed Himself by the Messianic sign—“discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart . . . as it was in the days of Lot” (Hebrews 4:12).

God’s vengeance must begin with those who profess to have received the Gospel with warning and a way to escape the day of His wrath. I Peter 4:17-19, “Judgment must begin at the house of God; [as His judgment under Nebuchadnezzar and Titus began at Jerusalem’s Temple. Since Pentecost Christians are the house of God, but after a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit His little hunted and persecuted end-time Bride will go to be with Jesus, and the foolish virgin, false church and apostate Christendom (so-called) will undergo the ordeal of jealousy]: and if judgment first begins at us, what will be the end of those who do not obey the Gospel of God? And if the righteous are scarcely saved, [not born-again], where will the ungodly and the sinner appear? Therefore let those who suffer according to God’s will entrust their souls to Him, the faithful Creator, while they do what is right”.

Peter drew his inspiration from Jeremiah 25 where verses 1-11 describe the judgment of the kingdom of God or theocracy in this world. In the fourth year of Jehoiakim, which coincided with the first year of Nebuchadnezzar, Jeremiah addressed all the people of Judah and Jerusalem declaring that for twenty-three years he and his fellow prophets had admonished them to repent of their idolatry or face the wrath of God. “Therefore THUS SAITH THE LORD: Because you have not obeyed My Words, I will send for all the tribes of the north, and Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant, and I will bring them against this land and its inhabitants, and against all the neighbouring nations; I will utterly destroy them and make them an abomination, a hissing, and perpetual desolations. Moreover I will remove from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the grinding of the millstones, and the light of the lamp. [A shadow of Matthew 24:36-42 and Revelation 18:21-24. If history does not repeat it rhymes]. And this whole land shall become a ruin and a waste, and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years”.

Nebuchadnezzar’s victory at Carchemesh and his ascension to the throne were historic facts (Jeremiah 46:2). He defeated Pharaoh Necho, the conqueror of Josiah at Megiddo at Carchemesh, and wrested from him all the territory from the Euphrates to Egypt. He took Jerusalem in the third year of Jehoiakim and “carried into the land of Shinar, to the house of [Merodach] his god, certain of the vessels of the house of God” (Daniel 1:1-2; II Chronicles 36:6). It was clear to Jeremiah that Nebuchadnezzar was the Divinely chosen instrument to inflict judgment on the theocracy and the other nations which would form the first of four Gentile world empires. As it is clear to God’s prophet in this day that the United States and the once Protestant churches are the image of Imperial and Papal Rome respectively, and that “Mystery: Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth” is God’s chosen instrument to inflict judgment upon professors who are not possessors of Christ, and that Judaeo-Communism is His servant to ultimately destroy the false church and her harlot daughters.

The Servitude, the Captivity and the Desolations are distinguished and explained in Israel, God’s Timepiece. The language of Jeremiah 27:6-8 and 11 distinguishes the Servitude from the Captivity: “And now have I given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant; and the beasts of the field have I given him also to serve him. And all nations will serve him, and his son, and his son’s son, until the time for his own land comes: [Babylon would endure seventy years as the first Gentile world empire of Daniel 2]; thereafter Babylon will fall under subjection to many nations and great kings. And it shall come to pass, that the nation and kingdom which will not serve Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, and will not put their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, that nation will I punish, says the Lord, with the sword, and with the famine, and with the pestilence, until I have consumed them by his hand. . . But the nations that bring their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him, those will I let remain still in their own land, says the Lord; and they shall till it, and dwell therein.” Jesus has decreed these same judgments, “the sword, famine, and pestilence,” will befall the whole world in Daniel’s Seventieth Week (Revelation 6:8); only those who surrender their life in martyrdom for refusing to serve “Mystery: Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth” will be saved (Revelation 12:10-11, 17; 13:8; 14:9-13; 17:5).

The appointed era of this Servitude was seventy years, and Jeremiah 29:10 was a message of hope to the Captivity, that at the expiration of the seventy years Servitude they should return to Jerusalem: “THUS SAITH THE LORD, After seventy years have been completed at Babylon I will visit you, and perform My promise and bring you back to this place”.

Jeremiah 25, on the other hand, was a prophecy for the rebellious Jews who remained in Jerusalem after the Servitude had commenced, warning that their stubborn disobedience would bring on them utter destruction (cherem), and that for seventy years the whole land should be a “desolation.” It was the era of the Desolations, and not of the Servitude which Daniel had in view.

One of the ordinances of Israelite Law required the land to lie fallow every seventh year, and it was in relation to the neglect of this ordinance throughout the theocracy that the era of the Desolations was decreed. It was to last “until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths; for so long as she lay desolate, she kept sabbath, to fulfill threescore and ten years” (II Chronicles 36:21)—the exact number of years of sabbaths in four hundred ninety years, the period from Saul (1096BC) to the Babylonian Servitude (606BC). Moses prophesied the Desolations in Leviticus 26:34-35 and Daniel’s seventy prophetic weeks are based on the seventy years of the Desolations (Daniel 9:2, 24).

The seventy-year Servitude and sixty-two years of Babylonian Captivity were fulfilled by the Decree of Cyrus on Nisan 1, 536BC authorizing the return to Jerusalem (Ezra 1). The seventy-years of the Desolations ended with the foundation of the Second Temple laid on twenty-fourth day of ninth month in 520BC, the second year of King Darius (Haggai 2:18-19). From the epoch of the Servitude (606BC) until the royal edict of the twentieth year of Artaxerxes Longimanus (445BC, Nehemiah 1:1-2:8; Daniel 9:24), the national independence of Judah was in abeyance, and with that date began the mystic era of 490 years, which forms the Seventy Weeks of Daniel’s prophecy.

This diversion into prophetic history will be profitable to your understanding of the Seventy Weeks in Daniel 9. Now back to our subject:

Jeremiah 25:12-16, “After seventy years are completed I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, the land of the Chaldeans, for their iniquity, says the Lord, and will make it perpetual desolations. I will bring upon that land all the Words I have pronounced against it, everything written in this Book, which Jeremiah prophesied against all the nations. For many nations and great kings shall make slaves of Babylon also. I will reward them according to their deeds and the work of their own hands. For THUS SAITH THE LORD, the God of Israel to me; Take the cup of the wine of indignation from My hand, and make all the nations, to whom I send you drink it. They shall drink and stagger, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them”.

In agreement with Jeremiah, Brother Branham said, the world is going insane. “I prophesy that this whole nation shall become desolate. God will punish this nation for her sins. . .” (Daniel p. 20:83). And in the seventh of seven consecutive visions the Lord showed him one Sunday morning in June, 1933 he said, “I heard a most terrible explosion, and as I turned I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:3). Luke 21:25-26 describes the crazed terror of men when the convulsions of nature sink Los Angeles, devastating coast lands worldwide, collapsing the dollar and world economy and killing scores, if not hundreds of millions overnight, and igniting the ‘hot’ stage of World War III. Like Jeremiah who withstood the denominations of his day, the Prophet rejected denominational teaching, taking instead the Sword of the Lord and was vindicated as God manifest the Words he spoke; this made the church system so mad they called him a fanatic, a mental telepathist and false prophet.

Jeremiah 25:15-29 explains how the Lord proposed to judge all of the nations of the then known world, which also represent the aggregate of the subsequent Babylonian empire. He will begin with Judah, “the house of God.” Babylon will be His instrument of execution, but will drink the cup of His indignation last (Revelation 17:1 – 19:21). The enumeration of nations ends indefinitely in verse 26, and in what follows no nation is mentioned by name, but the limits of the territory to be reached by the judgment is “all the inhabitants of the earth . . . all flesh . . . Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind will be raised up from the farthest corners of the earth (Revelation 7:1-3; 16:12-16). Those slain by the Lord on that day shall extend from one end of the earth to the other. They shall not be mourned nor gathered, nor buried; they will be as dung on the face of the earth” (Jeremiah 25:29-33; Isaiah 34; 66:16; Ezekiel 38 – 39; Zephaniah 1:2-18; Revelation 19).

The end of the Gentile dispensation and the judgment of apostate Christendom and global tribulation prophesied in the New Testament is foreshadowed by the beginning of “the times of the Gentiles” in the Old Testament with the judgment of apostate Yahwism and the kingdoms of the then known world.

In verse 30 the Lord, having dismissed those who protest against the cup of His indignation (in verses 28-29), commands Jeremiah to declare a more emphatic judgment proceeding not from God’s earthly sanctuary in Jerusalem, which He has forsaken and is itself an object of His Judgment (Jeremiah 38:18; 52:12-13; Ezekiel 10) but from the heavenly. He roars from the heavenly sanctuary against Jerusalem and the Temple, with a shout against His own and against all the inhabitants of earth. Like the harvesters who tread the grapes, he wades in human blood, for He disputes not with individuals but with all; therefore that cry of Judgment, like the “shout” of Matthew 25:6, I Thessalonians 4:16, and Revelation 10:1-7, the cry of indictment will reach the farthest ends of the earth, for the Lord has a case against all mankind. Even as I write, punishment is going forth from nation to nation, for the sons of Cain are the policemen of this world. Romans 13:4, “For he is the minister of God to you for good. But if you do that which is evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon he who does evil”.

Reverse of US Great Seal“Evil is going forth from nation to nation, and a great tempest [of war and strife] is stirring up from the utmost corners of the earth.” According to the Judaeo-Masonic motto, “Ordo Ab Chao,” the Illuminati’s “Novus Ordo Seclorum . . . Annuit Coeptis” or “new order of the ages beginning in 1776” is to be created out of pre-planned chaos through Hegelian Dialectics and Conspiracy to bring diverse interests into controlled conflict. So we find ourselves engaged in a series of perpetual wars instigated by and for the alien masters of our politicians. “Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18), and no wonder for the so-called church is about as barren of revelation as the surface of the Moon! Just ask any minister a real question and you will be appalled at the nonsense he will claim to be truth. This is the evidence of a deliberate long-range program of educating people for their place as useful idiots in Lucifer’s soon-coming totalitarian one world government.

Religion: The opiate of the unthinking masses, religion is a Satanic tool to impoverish, kill, torture and maim millions in service to unknown god/s by mind-control as we see in the preliminary stage of World War III where innocent Islam is trying to defend itself from within its resources and by the blood of its own, while political Zionism fights with the blood of nominal Christians and wealth loaned to them at usury.

Race: Speaking before a special meeting of the Emergency Council of European Rabbis in Budapest on January 12, 1952, Rabbi Emanuel Rabinovich said concerning progress towards their NWO, “. . . We will openly reveal our identity with the races of Asia and Africa. I can state with assurance that the last generation of white children is now being born. Our Control Commissions will, in the interests of peace and wiping out inter-racial tensions, forbid the whites to mate with whites. The white women must cohabit with members of the dark races, the white men with black women. Thus the white race will disappear, for mixing the dark with the white means the end of the white man, and our most dangerous enemy will become only a memory . . .” Goyim are defenseless against this ongoing iniquity since governments worldwide have enacted racial hatred legislation that would criminalize not just physical acts of racial violence but indict anyone who made public statements that might cause offence to any minority such as homosexuals as a group. This Machiavellian legislation in which truth is no defense was crafted by San Francisco lawyer Joseph Ribakoff for a competition sponsored by the ADL of B’nai B’rith. (He was subsequently suspended for misappropriating client funds). The selected politicians in our Hegelian sham democracies clearly represent the will of a faceless power far above “we the people.” The thesis proposes that not only must hate-motivated violence be banned, but also any words which stimulate: suspicion; friction; hate; and possible violence must also be criminalized and films censored (LJC93.doc; LJC93a.doc).

Miscegenation: Multiculturalism is the modern-day euphemism for intermarriage, which is cursed by the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. It was the original sin by which the Serpent, a handsome man-like creature committed adultery with Eve who bore Cain, a hybrid who is not in the Book of Life, which is the genealogy of the first Adam and has no KINSMAN Redeemer; intermarriage with Cain’s lineage is genocide to Adam’s race. Since the fiat money system is intended to fail the powers that be are exchanging ticket money, and what money cannot negotiate peacefully, war is contrived to take control of natural resources: minerals, lumber, water and arable land, displacing scores of millions as refugees.

According to those who should know, the Last Will of Canaan, who was the first descendent of Cain born on this side of the Flood, “Five things did Canaan charge his sons: love one another, love robbery, love lewdness, hate your masters, and do not speak the truth” (Talmud, Peshachim 113b; Matthew 23:33-36).

Lies: Evasion, equivocation, mental reservation, and subterfuge are the stock in trade of the enemy of God and man who control fractional reserve banking which is usury forbidden by the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, worldwide media, politics, entertainments, BIG Pharma, education, religion and the law.

Money: All money is brought into existence out of nothing, by a book keeping entry in a bank and loaned to those who need it as a bank debt at interest. This fact is not taught in schools. Politicians deny the truth and the media will not permit open discussion on the matter. Thus debt is the central factor destroying civilised society and the main mechanism in the policy of continuous centralisation of power on a global scale. Debt will destroy all sovereign national governments, all private ownership of property and all individual freedoms, for true freedom is only possible if we have economic freedom. This is why our politicians have privatized public assets which are not theirs to sell, entered public-private partnerships, corporatised the courts, bureaucracies, nation, states and even themselves (as explained in Newsletters 648, 619, and 618). So that once the corporation that poses as your country or mine has been intentionally bankrupted the Rothschild-controlled International Monetary Fund (IMF), which is the bag man over Central Banks, will foreclose, returning “we the people” to serfdom.

War: we are fighting perpetual wars against nonexistent enemies such as the data base “al Qaeda” and the abstract noun “terrorism,” when the Terrorists “r” US. Osama bin Laden was a CIA operative who can never be apprehended since he has been dead for years. The enemy is the power that controls our own governments. How can we fight a “war on drugs” when the drug lords are “the City,” their international banksters and the CIA. How can we fight a war on disease when the laboratories of BIG Pharma and the military create diseases and inoculation of diseases and authorities are restricting and outlawing natural vitamins and minerals.

Terrorism: The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion state “In applying our principles let attention be paid to the character of the people in whose country you live and act; a general, identical application of them, until such time as the people shall have been re-educated to our pattern, cannot have success. But by approaching their application cautiously you will see that not a decade will pass before the most stubborn character will change and we shall add a new people to the ranks of those already subdued by us.

The words of the liberal, which are in effect the words of our Masonic watchword, namely, “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity,” will, when we come into our kingdom, be changed by us into words no longer of a watchword, but only an expression of idealism, namely, into “The right of liberty, the duty of equality, the ideal of brotherhood.” That is how we shall put it,—and so we shall catch the bull by the horns . . . de facto we have already wiped out every kind of rule except our own, although de jure there still remain a good many of them. Nowadays, if any States raise a protest against us it is only pro forma at our discretion and by our direction, for their anti-Semitism is indispensable to us for the management of our lesser brethren [i.e. Freemasons]. I will not enter into further explanations, for this matter has formed the subject of repeated discussions amongst us.

For us there are not checks to limit the range of our activity. Our Super-Government subsists in extra-legal conditions which are described in the accepted terminology by the energetic and forcible word—Dictatorship. I am in a position to tell you with a clear conscience that at the proper time we, the law-givers, shall execute judgment and sentence, we shall slay and we shall spare, we, as head of all our troops, are mounted on the steed of the leader. We rule by force of will, because in our hands are the fragments of a once powerful party, now vanquished by us. And the weapons in our hands are limitless ambitions, burning greediness, merciless vengeance, hatreds and malice.

It is from us that the all-engulfing terror proceeds. We have in our service persons of all opinions, of all doctrines, restorating monarchists, demagogues, socialists, communists, and utopian dreamers of every kind. We have harnessed them all to the task: each one of them on his own account is boring away at the last remnants of authority, is striving to overthrow all established form of order. By these acts all States are in torture; they exhort to tranquility, are ready to sacrifice everything for peace: But we will not give them peace until they openly acknowledge our international super-government, and with submissiveness.

Following the earthquake, war and strife will roll from nation to nation, and shortly after the Holy Spirit leaves this earth in Christ’s Bride of all Ages (II Thessalonians 2:7) Judaeo-communist Russia, “the king of the North,” will attack and invade the United States, and Rome’s pope then incarnate by Satan will restore peace. Universal war will erupt once again after the midst of Daniel’s Seventieth Week covering the whole surface of the earth with the slain for the nations will be judged without mercy.

Brother Branham was the angel with the Seventh Vial who “proclaimed the day of vengeance of out God,” indicted and showed us the judgment of the great whore ruling the final Gentile world empire with whom the kings of the earth have committed idolatry and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the intoxication of her idolatrous religion (Revelation 17:1-6). In Revelation 18 he reveals Christ’s ‘parousia’ Coming to us and the heavenly Voice confirms his ministry of Matthew 25:6 and I Thessalonians 4:16. He describes the destruction of Rome in the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week and the sinking of Los Angeles at the start of the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week. In Revelation 19 he describes Israel’s revelation of Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming in the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week and the judgment of the nations in Armageddon presaged in Jeremiah 25.

Let us not forget that “Judgment must begin at the house of God; and if judgment first begins at us, what will be the end of those who do not obey the Gospel of God? nl652.htm
