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.

“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.” Our Brother Morris Richard Ungren was born in Wymore, Nebraska on August 11, 1919 and passed from this life on November 3, 2011, aged 92, still pastoring Grace Church in Southaven, Missouri, after 43 years, having been ordained to the ministry in 1941. His wife, Sister Vivian Marie Ungren, passed away in 2010 after a long illness and he is survived by their daughter, Sonja Eccles, a grandson Patrick Eccles, Jr., three great-grandchildren, and two sisters, Helen Ungren Downing, Vera Ungren Myers.

A talented singer, while studying at New York University he sang on several Christian radio stations and declined a Broadway contract to spend his life in service to the Lord. Before Brother Branham revealed the First Seal Brother Ungren sang “Down from His Glory.” At other times he sang “How Great Thou Art,” also a favourite with Brother Branham. I heard him sing at a meeting in Columbus, Ohio in 1982/3, and before a convention in Queensland, Australia in about 1985. We kept in touch by ‘phone and correspondence.

Our talented Brother was a poet, scholar, prolific writer and author of Christian books that have been translated into many languages. He has ministered in Zimbabwe, South Africa, and other countries.

Although He is not very far from any of us, our Brother is beyond the curtain of time in another dimension hidden from our eyes by the veil of flesh. I praise the Lord for the friendship and fellowship of Brother Morris, a faithful Brother, colleague and friend. Along with the Brethren who knew and loved him I look forward to our reunion following the last Trump when the dead are raised incorruptible and we are changed in the atoms.

Please continue faithful in prayer for our Brother Youcef Nadarkhani who remains imprisoned in Iran, pending a decision next month from the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Sayed ‘Ali Khamenei.

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.

Black Budget and Leveraged Buyout of World using Stolen Money

November 11, 2011 — Catherine Austin Fitts said we are witnessing a Leveraged Buyout of the world that will permanently end democracy. The elite has bought all the politicians and the media. They have stolen enough money to earn two trillion dollars a year from their investments. . . sufficient to fund a world government.

Wall Street and the City of London have been given more money in Bailouts than the total amount of money the United States spent on all of its wars. Wall Street was also allowed to steal four trillion dollars from federal spending that we are not allowed to audit. When she was Housing Commissioner in the first Bush administration, she once saw on one city block ten government guaranteed loans on buildings that never existed.

Separately from that Jim Willie has said when the Federal Reserve sells Treasury Bonds, they sell more than the deficit. This fraud has added trillions more to the LBO Buyout fund. As I have said previously, the banks are allowed to launder a trillion dollars a year in drugs, 400 billion dollars a year in illegal weapons and 500 billion dollars in political bribes.

Catherine has written and spoken often of mortgage fraud. The bankers were allowed to sell each mortgage ten times. The Federal Reserve has been busy buying fraudulent mortgage backed securities to keep the bankers out of jail. . .

Carbon (Currency) Tax passes Senate

November 8, 2011 — Senator Barnaby Joyce insists: “This is a broad based consumption tax, an attack on every household via every power point in their house. It does nothing to change the temperature of the globe but opens every household up to its complete avenue via the powerlines to the Australian Taxation Office.”

“At the Australian Taxation Office they will get that money, they will churn it, they will burn it, they will blow it up but they will not change the temperature of the globe”. Full story: alor.org Please read all of the articles and their links for a comprehensive understanding of Lucifer’s planned subterfuge on humanity.

Comment: What the good Senator did not say is that the idea of a Carbon (Currency) Tax has a long pedigree. Smart Meters need to be studied alongside Carbon (Currency) Tax. Read this article thoroughly and you will appreciate the depth of long-term planning by those manipulating Satan’s dupes, your elected representatives, the leaders of industry, educators, and ministers of religion, mums, dads and children worldwide. You will discover some of the hidden objectives behind historical events, technological developments, and the outcomes of social and political decisions, all working towards Lucifer’s totalitarian one world government . . . funded by your tax dollars.

The objective of the global cooling/global warming/climate change/sustainable development hoax and scam will be unveiled. Henry Kissinger said, “Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people.” The world is returning to serfdom. The one escape is through the message of God’s prophet, William Branham. When the earthquakes sink Los Angeles and cleave the Mount of Olives at the close of the Gentile dispensation, igniting the ‘hot stage’ of the present World War III, Satan will be cast down to Earth. Incarnate in the pope he will call a federation of leaders of the world’s religions, whose ambassadors are even now ensconced in the Vatican, and restore peace. A deceived world will acclaim him president of one world government, sealing its fate and fulfilling Isaiah 14:12-14, II Thessalonians 2:3-12, Revelation 13:3-8 and 17:11-18.

Comment: It has been Six thousand years in the making; finally all things are ready for Lucifer’s totalitarian one world government. Truth vs. Deception:

1. The IRS is not a US government agency; it is an agency of the IMF (International Monetary Fund; Diversified Metal Products v IRS et al. CV-93-405E-EJE USDCDI, Public Law 94-564, Senate report 94-1148 pg. 5967, Plan No. 26, Public Law 102-391).

7. Social Security Numbers are issued by the UN through the IMF (International Monetary Fund). The application for a Social Security number is the SS5 Form. The Department of the Treasury (IMF) issues the SS5 forms not the Social Security Administration. The new SS5 forms do not state who publishes them while the old form states they are Department of the Treasury (20 CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) Chap. 111 Subpart B. 422.103 (b)).

8. There are NO Judicial courts in America and have not been since 1789. Judges do not enforce Statutes and Codes. Executive Administrators enforce Statutes and Codes (FRC v. GE 281 US 464 Keller v. PE 261 US 428, 1 Stat 138-178).

9. There have NOT been any judges in America since 1789. There have just been administrators (FRC v. GE 281 US 464 Keller v. PE 261 US 428 1 Stat. 138-178).

11. New York City is defined in Federal Regulations as the United Nations (20 CFR (CF R) Ch. 111, subpart B 44.103 (b) (2).

12. Social Security is not insurance or contract or a Trust Fund (Helvering v. Davis 301 US 619 Steward Co. v. Davis 301 US 548).

13. Social Security check comes from the IMF (International Monetary Fund), which is an agency of the United Nations (It says US Department of Treasury at the top left corner).

14. You own NO property, slaves can’t own property. Read carefully the Deed to the property you think is yours. You are listed as a TENANT (Senate Document 43, 73rd Congress 1st Session).

15. The Most powerful court in America is NOT the United States Supreme court, but the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania (42 PA. CSA 502).

16. The King of England financially backed both sides of the American Revolutionary War (Treaty of Versailles-July 16, 1782 Treaty of Paris 8 Stat 80).

17. You CANNOT use the US Constitution to defend yourself because you are NOT a party to it (Padelford Fay & Co. v The Mayor and Alderman of the City of Savannah 14 Georgia 438, 520).

18. America is a British Colony. The ‘United States’ is a corporation, not a land mass and it existed before the Revolutionary War and the British Troops did not leave until 1796 (Republica v.

21. A 1040 Form is for Tribute paid to Britain (IRS Publication 6209).

22. The Pope claims to own the entire planet through the laws of conquest and discovery and has ordered the genocide of millions (Papal Bulls of 1455, 1495 & 1493).

23. The Pope’s laws are obligatory on everyone (Bened. XIV., De Syn. Dioec, lib, ix, c. vii, n. 4. Prati, 1844 Syllabus Prop 28, 29, 44).

24. We are slaves and own absolutely nothing, NOT even what we think are our children (Tillman vs. Roberts 108 So. 62, Van Koten vs. Van Koten 154 N.E. 146, Senate Document 438 73rd Congress 1st Session, Wynehammer v. People 13 N.Y. REP 378, 481).

25. Military leader George Washington divided up the States (Estates) into Districts (Messages and papers of the Presidents Volume 1 page 99 1828 Dictionary of Estate).

26. “The People” does NOT include you and me (Barron vs. Mayor and City Council of Baltimore 32 US 243).

27. It is NOT the duty of the police to protect you. Their job is to protect THE CORPORATION and arrest code breakers (SAPP vs. Tallahassee, 348 So. 2nd. 363, REiff vs. City of Phila. 477 F. 1262, Lynch vs. NC Dept. of Justice 376 S.E. 2nd. 247).

US to Announce ‘Permanent Military Presence’ in Australia

November 10, 2011 — The Obama Administration didn’t get the permanent military presence it sought in Iraq, but they are reportedly on the brink of announcing a new permanent deployment in a rather surprising place—Australia.

Opposition figures within the Australia government say that the announcement will be made next week during President Obama’s visit to Australia, and that the US will begin deploying Marines to the nation’s Darwin military base.

The “why” of the sudden (but permanent) deployment is unclear, but some media outlets cited unnamed officials saying it had something to do with “heightened concern about China.”

Which is of course the default reason for any and all US military actions in the South Pacific, but makes even less sense in this case, since there is no conceivable reason to expect that Australia is about to be overrun by Red Chinese, or that if this were somehow the case the deployment of US Marines would make the US seem more committed to that incredibly improbable war.

Comment: Australia, you have sold your birthright. The (once) Protestant United States is the image unto the beast of Imperial Rome (Revelation 13:11-18).


Israeli Ex-President to serve Seven Years for Rape

Born not of Flesh, but of the Spirit

Question: The Book of Deuteronomy is highly regarded by denominational ministers and believers because it speaks of the “chosen” like in Deuteronomy 7:6-8: “You are a holy people unto the Lord your God: the Lord your God has chosen you to be a special people unto Himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. The Lord did not set His love upon you, nor choose you, because you were more in number than any people; for you were the fewest of all people: but because the Lord loved you, and because He would keep the oath He had sworn to your fathers He has brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt”.

Jews are chosen. Can you clarify this for me, as I cannot understand why God would make those who butchered Him “chosen,” He knew this; “chosen” is what I am hung up on.

Answer: Acts 10:34-45, “Peter said, Truly I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: but in every nation he who fears Him, and does what is right is acceptable to Him. He sent this Message to the Israelites, when through Jesus Christ (He is Lord of all) He made the Good News of peace known to them. That Word was proclaimed throughout all Judaea, beginning from Galilee after the baptism which John preached: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the Devil, for God was with Him. And we are witnesses of all that He did both in Judea and in Jerusalem. They murdered Him by hanging on a tree; but God raised Him up on the third day, and made Him manifest; not to all the people, but to us who were chosen before [the foundation of the world] by God as witnesses, who ate and drink with Him after His resurrection from the dead. And He ordered us to preach to the people, and to bear solemn testify that He is the one ordained by God to be Judge of the living and dead. To Him all the prophets bear witness, that all who believe in Him receive remission of sins through His Name. While Peter spoke these Words, the Holy Ghost fell on all who hearkened to the Word. And the circumcised believers who had accompanied Peter were amazed, that the baptism with the Holy Ghost or new birth was poured out on the Gentiles also”.

God is not a partial judge but placed Adam and every soul in Adam’s race on free moral agency to fulfill or refuse His will, which is His revealed Word, with the certainty of reward or punishment. Being omniscient He knew from the foundation of the world those whose lives would manifest His Word before all men, showing they are eternal Attributes of the Logos (II Corinthians 3:2). These are His elect written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. They constitute the Old Testament saints from Adam to Calvary, of whom less than fifty percent could have been Semitic, and before Reuben none was an Israelite. The New Testament saints are Christ’s predominantly Gentile Bride, and 144,000 elect Israelites who will be born-again in the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week, and then martyred. Of these “chosen people” Christ’s Bride is His Queen, while the Old Testament saints and the 144,000 Israelites are our servants.

Israel became a nation when they were separated from Egypt by God through Moses. “The Word of God has not failed, but through their exercise of free moral agency not all of the descendants of Israel belong to Israel [as heirs of God’s promises to the fathers through faith, and although “many are called, few are chosen”] they are not all Abraham’s [Spiritual] children because they are his [natural] seed, but “Through Isaac shall your seed be named after you.” This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God: but the children of [faith in] the promise are reckoned as his [Spiritual] descendants [and heirs of God’s promises to “the fathers”].” Thus through the injudicious exercise of his free moral agency unbelieving Esau and his descendants were excluded from the natural “blessing of Abraham”.

Despite their genealogy, Israel’s sons who declined God’s “call” to join the Exodus did not belong Israel and had no part in His promises to the fathers, proving they were not God’s “chosen.” God’s promise to Abraham was purely of grace through faith without condition; like your healing, it was theirs for the taking. But Moses’ followers continually murmured against God, who honoured His Token to Moses, “When you have brought forth the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God upon this Mount Sinai” (Exodus 3:12), but changed His covenant with Israel from unconditional grace to the conditional “curse of the Law of sin and death,” bringing every Israelite under condemnation because no man can meet its strict requirement (Romans 8:2; Galatians 3:13; James 2:10).

Israel affirmed the terms of this new covenant in the blood of a lamb, signifying the Blood of Jesus Messiah their promised Kinsman Redeemer. But before Moses could return with the stone tablets of Law engraved by the hand of God they had broken their covenant and were naked and worshipping a golden calf, whereupon God invoked the dreadful penalty of the Law: the guilty were blotted from the Book of Life and three thousand men were slain (Exodus 32). These Israelites of the flesh were not God’s “chosen people”.

Israel journeyed to Kadesh whence Moses sent one man from each of the twelve tribes to spy out the land of Canaan, promised to them without condition, so that no man should perish in the campaign. They all confirmed Canaan was “a land flowing with milk and honey” as the Lord had said, but ten spies rejected His promise that by grace through faith they would conquer its inhabitants and unbelieving Israel declared, “Let us elect a captain to lead us back to Egypt. . . And the Lord said . . . as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord. Because all those men who have seen My glory, and My miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, have tempted Me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to My voice; they shall not see the land which I swore to their fathers, neither shall any of those who provoked Me see it” (Numbers 13 – 14). And God marched Israel around in the wilderness for forty years until every adult perished except faithful Joshua and Caleb. Not counting the Levites or the womenfolk, the number of males twenty years and over exceeded 603,550 LOST souls, say 1.5 million Israelites who were not “chosen” (Numbers 1; Psalm 95:10-11; John 6:49).

God’s “chosen people” are born not of the Flesh, but of the Spirit. Christ’s end-time Bride has seen God’s glory and the miracles which He performed through Brother Branham’s ministry, and continues to perform in the wilderness today. The Lord desires our obedience through faith rather than our sacrifice in the great tribulation.

Galatians 3:26-29, “All [in Adam’s race] are the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. [“But without faith it is impossible to please Him” (Hebrews 11:6)]. As many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. For in Christ Jesus you are all one: there is neither Judahite nor Gentile, bond nor free, male nor female. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise“.

Romans 8:11-14, “If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, then He who raised Jesus Messiah from the dead will give Life to your mortal bodies also through His Spirit that dwells in you. So then, brethren, we are obligated, but not to the sinful nature of the flesh, to live after the flesh—for if you live according to the flesh you will die: but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, then you will live. For all [in Adam’s race] who are led by the Spirit of God, are the sons of God”.

John 1:10 informs us, “Messiah came to His own, and His own received Him not.” Of the Israelites complicit in His murder Psalm 69:27-28 prophesied, “Add iniquity to their iniquity (Matthew 27:25; John 11:49-52): and let them not come into Your righteousness. Let them be blotted out of the Book of Life, and not be written with the righteous.” The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob blinded the nation of Israel “until the Gentile dispensation is fulfilled” (Romans 11:25; Isaiah 29:10; Daniel 9:27). Here we have untold millions of Israelites who, through their obstinate and unswerving sinfulness, are NOT God’s “chosen people”.

In Deuteronomy 7:8 Moses explained to the children of Israel: “God choose you . . . in order to keep the oath He had sworn to your fathers.” [For] “God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should change His mind. When He gives His Word, does He not perform it? Or does He promise and not fulfill it” (Numbers 23:19)?

So God’s Word demands a total separation from unbelief. He commanded Abram: “Get out of your country, and from your kindred, and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you: and I will make you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing: and I will bless those who bless you, and curse him that curses you: and in you shall all families [in Adam’s race] be blessed” (Genesis 12:1-3). Abraham’s blessing was unconditional so long as he took God at His Word.

In Genesis 15:4-8, “The Word of the Lord came to Abram, saying, Your steward Eliezer shall not be your heir; your own son shall be your heir. And He brought him outside, and said, Look toward heaven and number the stars, if you are able to number them. Then He said to him, So shall your seed be. And Abram believed the Lord; and He reckoned it to him for righteousness”.

In Deuteronomy 1:8 Moses told the Israelites, “Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them and to their seed after them.”

In the natural, God’s promise was strictly to the bloodline of Abraham, to Isaac, through Isaac to Jacob, through Jacob/Israel to the Patriarchs, and through the patriarchs to their kin. There was some intermarriage with Gentile women of Adam’s race, as for instance Moses’ Ethiopian second wife, Joseph’s Egyptian wife, and Boaz’ marriage to Ruth, the Moabitess, but under the Old Covenant the birthright remained strictly in this bloodline.

In his question our Brother said, “Jews are “chosen.” Can you clarify this for me? I cannot understand why God would make those who butchered Him “chosen,” He knew this; “chosen” is what I am hung up on”.

Had the Israelites exhibited the faith of Abraham God would never have placed them under the curse of the Law; not one would have perished in the wilderness, and they would have conquered and settled Canaan forty years earlier than they did without casualties. Furthermore, they would have utterly slain or expelled the physical Serpent’s seed, whereas many intermarried.

The short answer to our Brother’s question is that prior to the late seventeenth century the word J_E_W was in no Bible, and this modern word contradicts the meaning of the two words it has replaced. According to both Testaments, Jewish historians and the eminent scholars who compiled their encyclopedias, well over ninety percent of so-called Jews are non-Semitic and outside God’s covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Israel. Neither do they share the faith of Moses and the prophets, for Judaism is Pharisaism and the antithesis of Yahwism (Matthew 15:9). Almost to a man, Jews are impersonators of Israel and not God’s “chosen people” for blessing. Their leaders know this.

When asked, “Who is Israel? — Who is a Jew?” the Israeli Government’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) answered thus: “The term Israelite is purely Biblical. An Israeli is a citizen of Israel, regardless of religion. A Jew is a person anywhere in the world born to a Jewish mother, or converted to Judaism, who is thus identified as a member of the Jewish people and religion.” Notice here that the Jews themselves clearly imply that the term “Israelite” and “Jew” are separate and distinct and Jews have no relation whatsoever with the Biblical Shemitic bloodline. In fact, under the heading “A Brief History of the Terms for Jew,” in the 1980 Jewish Almanac, is the following incredible admission: “Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an Ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew” (1980 Jewish Almanac, p. 3).

Today, to trace anyone’s descent to ancient Palestine would be a genealogical impossibility. The Jewish racial myth flows from the fact that the words ‘Hebrew,’ ‘Israelite,’ ‘Jew,’ ‘Judaism,’ and the ‘Jewish people’ have been used synonymously to suggest a historic continuity, but this is a gross misuse. The descriptive name Judaism was never heard by the Hebrews or Israelites; it appears only within modern Christianity. The English abbreviation, ‘Jew,’ is recent and does not correspond to anything denoted by the Aramaic, Greek or Roman terms for ‘Judahite’ or ‘Judean,’ which were in use during the lifetime of Jesus. In fact, according to Reporting Guidelines for the Australian Press Council, General Press Release No. 49 (issued June 1982) with reference to the word “Race” as applied to Jews, “The Press Council wishes to alert editors to a common mistake: There is no “Jewish race.” Judaism is not a race but a religion. There are Caucasian Jews, Mongolian Jews, Oriental Jews, Semitic Jews, and so on—terms defining both racial origin and religion. The Council asks all editors and sub-editors to watch for this error . . .”

During Christ’s lifetime, no persons were described as “Jews” anywhere. This very important FACT is supported by sound theology, suppressed historical truth and science. When Jesus was in Judea, it was not the “homeland” of the ancestors of those who today style themselves as “Jews.” Their ancestors never set-foot anywhere near Judea. They existed at that time in Asia, their true “homeland”, and were known as Chazars or Turkish Mongols. Banned author Douglas Reed, in his superbly researched classic, “Controversy of Zion,” writes: “No authority, Judaist or other, would support the claim to blood decent from Judah for the so-called Jews of today.” In fact, the Palestinians would have more claim to the racial description, ‘Semite’, than any within modern Jewry who are of Eastern-European stock and trace their lineage back to the ancient Asiatic kingdom of the Chazar.

“Here’s a paradox, a paradox, a most ingenious paradox: and anthropological fact, many Christians may have much more Hebrew-Israelite blood in their veins than most of their Jewish neighbors” (Alfred M. Lilienthal: “What Price Israel”).

God further explains His promise in Genesis 17:1-5, “The Lord appeared to Abram, and said to him, I am the Almighty God; walk before Me, and be perfect. [This is a promise and declaration of God’s unconditional grace, not a demand for good works but the assurance that if Abram lives in His Presence He will be blameless (Ezekiel 36:27; Hebrews 9:14; I Peter 1:13-16; I John 1:7)]. And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations [Gentiles]. Neither shall your name any more be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations [Gentiles] have I made you”.

Genesis 22:18, “And in your Seed [singular] shall all the nations of the Earth be blessed; because you have obeyed My voice.”

All the nations of the Earth” are not Israelites, and although self-styled non-Semitic, anti-Semitic Jews overrule them, they are not Jewish either! “All nations” are not blessed by Jewish seed; on the contrary, God has set enmity between them and Adam’s race (Genesis 3:15); neither are “All nations” blessed by Israelites who “for fear of the Jews” live in exile among the Islamic peoples.

finished Body of ChristGod’s “chosen people” are the elect of Adam’s race. In every dispensation God’s elect were those who fulfilled the Word for their day (II Peter 1:12). From God’s promise to Abram to Calvary, the present Truth” was revealed through God’s prophets to Israel, so that only Israelites and proselytes with the Word for their hour could become God’s “chosen people.” Likewise in the Gentile dispensation, only those who were “walking in the Light AS Jesus is manifesting it” through the “angel” to their day could be born-again and become God’s “chosen people” (I John 1:7; Revelation 1-3).

A life lived by the faith of Martin Luther’s Message gave new birth to the elect of the Sardis Church Age (1520 – 1750), but justification by grace through faith would only render one a foolish virgin in the Philadelphian Church Age (1750 – 1906), for God added the revelation of sanctification or Scriptural holiness through the Message of John Wesley. The Body was building ‘Word upon Word, line upon line, precept upon precept; here a little, and there a little” in the Reformation of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic system of false worship. Then in the Laodicean Church Age (1906 – 1963) the Lord restored the revelation “Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, and today, and forever”; the gifts of the Spirit became active once more, and Wesley’s Message added to Luther’s Message was no longer sufficient to quicken the elect to new birth without this further measure of the Spirit.

The Laodicean Age ended in 1963 and the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to Earth in Word form through the mouth of His prophet, William Branham (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:1-7). All Seven Church Ages were over and God’s “chosen people” entered the holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the antitype of Israel’s Pentecostal Feast with the Token of the Life of Christ on display by the fullness of the Spirit on the fullness of the Word bringing us to maturity for the manifestation of the sons of God and the translation (Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:49-56).



Noah’s Wife Naamah


Question: I have tried to find the historical record that identifies Naamah as Noah’s second wife and states that she was not the mother of his three sons.

Answer: Many, mainly Jewish books name Naamah as Noah’s wife but without explanation. The historical record is found in Genesis 5:22.

Some Brethren have said, since Noah was righteous, he could not possibly have married a Serpent’s seed. Brother Branham said, “Here comes the seed of the serpent. Now, remember, there’ll be enmity, war between them. . . Everything was destroyed: got in such a conglomeration of sin. And they took the rule, and smartest and intelligent, till God looked down, there wasn’t very many left, so He just took Noah and his family in the ark and rained the water down, and destroyed the whole thing: took Enoch up beforehand. Is that right? There was all the seed, almost all the seed. But He has a PURPOSE to be fulfilled” (Serpent’s Seed, 26:196).

The seed of the woman had to be smitten on Calvary, and in rising again, “crush the Serpent’s head, [Satan]” (Genesis 3:15; Ephesians 1:19-23). God’s purpose is threefold:

  1. To express the fullness of His nature and character in the virgin-born Jesus Messiah that He may perform the duty of Kinsman Redeemer for the elect of Adam’s race (Colossians 2:9).
    So the physical seed of the Serpent has to be with us today, and he is the cause of all of the wars and poverty, working Satanic cunning to defeat and destroy the kingdom of God by his “enmity” against the children of the first and of the last Adam (Genesis 3:15).

  2. That by means of the new birth He might have preeminence in Christ’s Bride, the true Church who become written epistles of the Word for their hour, known and read by all who recognize that they had been with Jesus, and what they say in the manifestation of the Sons of God, God will perform, because they have the mind of Christ (Acts 4:13; I Corinthians 2:16; II Corinthians 3:2; Colossians 1:27).

  3. And to restore the Kingdom and all that was lost through the Fall to its rightful position. (Genesis 3:8).

 

Brother Branham said, “Remember, when Noah come out, Ham [spiritual Serpent’s seed] was with him. [So was Naamah, physical Serpent’s seed]. Sin was still in there. Sin went right on over through the ark, unbelief, doubt went over in the ark, carried above the judgment; but Enoch went higher than the ark. He went on into the Presence of God, but Noah went through and come out, and there was still sin: type of the millennium, of the world’s condition. . . Then, at the end of the thousand years there will be a judgment, showing that Ham was in the ark. And Ham is still there in the remnant [144,000 elect Israelites and the Foolish Virgin]. Ones that heard it and rejected it have to be judged” (The Future Home of the Heavenly Bridegroom and the Earthly Bride, p. 17:123, 513).

Cain and his children, including Canaan and his descendants, were cursed both in their conception and their lineage. “Twice dead, plucked up by the roots” (Jude 11-12).

Brother Branham continued, “Noah and his sons which come out, Ham, Shem, and Japheth, come out in the righteous line.”

“How did the seed ever get over? The seed come over in the ark, just like it did in the beginning through the woman, their wives. They carried the seed of Satan through the ark just as Eve packed the seed of Satan to give birth to Cain, through the woman [physical Serpent’s seed]. You put them women in your platforms for preachers, the Bible condemning it [spiritual Serpent’s seed]. Paul said, “If any man thinks himself to be a prophet or even spiritual, let him acknowledge that what I write is the commandments of the Lord; but if he be ignorant, just let him be ignorant” (Serpent’s Seed, p. 27:197-199).

It was “their wives” (PLURAL) as Brother Branham said. Naamah (meaning ‘lovely’) was physical Serpent’s seed, and Mrs. Ham was spiritual Serpent’s seed. So we see not “all” of the physical Serpent’s seed was destroyed, at least one, and in fact only one was in the ark.

Brother Branham said, “Now let this be known: Scripture does not play with words. Whatever is in the Record is there for the anointed eyes to see. It is there for a purpose. In that Word it says, Genesis 3:20, “And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.” But no Scripture ever says that Adam is the father of all living. If there is not this connotation to be placed upon Genesis 3:20, why would it be mentioned that Eve is the mother of all, and no word said about Adam? The fact is that though Eve was “the mother of all living,” Adam was not the father of all living”  (Church Ages, p. 105:2).

In the Old Testament the birthright followed the male line thus females seldom are listed in the genealogies. The New Testament names Jesus’ four brothers—James, Joses (Joseph), Simeon and Judas, however the names of his sisters, of whom there were at least two, are not mentioned. The only women mentioned in Scripture from the time of Adam until the days of Noah are Eve and one of her daughters, the unnamed wife of Cain, “Cain knew his [own] wife” (Genesis 4:17, 19-22). Then in the days of Noah, Lamech’s “two wives . . . Adah and Zillah . . . [and] the sister of Tubalcain, Naamah.” Then in Genesis 5:4, “The days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters.” Anointed eyes will note the last named in Cain’s direct bloodline is the Serpent seed Tubalcain’s sister Naamah, a “daughter of man”; the last “daughter of man” in the direct descent of firstborns from Cain’s hybrid line.

In Genesis 6:1-4 we read, “It came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair [and were captivated by their sensual beauty]; and they took them wives PARTNERS of all which they chose [free love through lust as it is today—men and women co-habiting with whoever takes their fancy, as Jesus prophesied in Matthew 24:37]. And the Lord said, My Spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.”

“There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after the FLOOD, when the sons of God [Adam’s offspring] came in unto the daughters of men [Cain’s offspring], who bore them [children], these [became] mighty men that were of old, [famous or infamous] men of renown” [i.e. not necessarily all physical giants—but men of prominence who took glory to themselves. The descriptor is ‘chutzpah’]!

Since only eight (8) souls were saved by water, one (1) of them had to be physical Serpent’s seed.

Genesis 6 tells us that one was not Noah or his three sons. Neither was it the mother of those three boys, nor was it their wives or all of the descendents of Shem, Ham and Japheth would be irredeemable. That leaves one person, and by the mathematical process of elimination 8-7=1, it could only be Noah’s wife. By the same process we deduce the wife Noah took with him in the ark was NOT the mother of his three sons, and whoever she was, she was physical Serpent’s seed, otherwise Genesis 6:4, Matthew 23:33-35, and 24:37 cannot be relied upon as the inspired Word of God.

Since Brother Branham’s ministry restored the apostolic and finished the mystery of God, Christ’s end-time Bride is ordained and required to know the identity of this woman for it was revealed in the Seven Thunders of (Revelation 10:1-7). In his seminal pre-Seals Message, “Sirs, is this the Time, Brother Branham listed some of the previously hidden mysteries that were to be revealed in the Seven Thunders. One was “The Serpent’s seed, that has been a hidden all through the years” (p. 31:12).

“There’ll just be a few understand it. “As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the coming of the Son of man.” What was saved? Five souls. . . There will be very few . . . translated in that time [because “very few” in the circle of this Message are in the faith]” (p. 35:3).

Noah, Mr. and Mrs. Shem, and Mr. and Mrs. Japheth: only five. Mrs. Noah was saved physically by water but LOST since she was physical Serpent’s seed, not in the Book of Life and without a KINSMAN Redeemer. Jesus Christ is no more KIN to Cain and his race than Israel’s bulls and goats were kin to man, hence they could not redeem the worshipper. Mr. and Mrs. Ham were spiritual Serpent’s seed believing a hybrid religion, so that their names were removed from the Book of Life and they were LOST. This did NOT affect their descendants in Adam’s race who are all born with their names in the Book of Life and free to receive the Word of the hour when it is presented, or reject it and have their names blotted from the record of life.

Since the mystery of God is finished we are not to guess but identify this woman in His unchanging Word. There the Lord provides only one candidate who is obviously Naamah. But this is a revelation like discerning the apparent contradiction between Matthew 28:18 and Acts 2:38-39, so few will understand it.

Jesus Messiah was the last Adam. He was not the last Cain who was a mamser, a hybrid like the mule, and not in Adam’s race, the Book of Life. Cain was not even in God’s creation, and since he was not an attribute of the Logos, he and his descendants through Canaan like the Edomites, Hittites and Canaanites are without a redeemer. But as they can trace their lineage to Adam’s adulterous wife, Eve. . . and to Naamah, they pretend that the genealogy follows the mother, and work under another name, and in a different occupation.

Thinking persons see this deception as not only contrary to the genealogies of the Bible, but a biological impossibility. The offspring of miscegenation between these two races is always in Cain’s line and genocide to Adam’s race. Miscegenation between the sons of Adam and the pretty Serpent’s seed daughters of Cain so grieved God, He destroyed all life on earth (Genesis 6:1-4).Jesus prophesied this sin would repeat in these last days (Matthew 24:37) and the sinful United Nations Organization established by the children of Cain mandate the wickedness of “multiculturalism” contrary to God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, replicating and compounding the original sin which is genocide to Adam’s race (Genesis 1:11; Amos 3:3).

Amos 3:3: “Two cannot walk unless they agree in God’s Word.” Yet these sons of Cain entice nominal Christians to be unequally yoked together with diverse religions in their World Council of Churches, so-called ‘interfaith’ conventions, and the Parliament of World Religions, repeating the sins of Balaam who could only prophesy what God put in his mouth, but for gold and popularity, he substituted false teaching and enticed Israel into natural fornication with their denominational cousin Moab. God never forgave that sin, which is a shadow and type of this time of union in spiritual fornication against God’s unchanging Word (Numbers 25; Revelation 2:14).

Because Ham was the progenitor of Naamah’s illegitimate son Canaan, Cain’s race is extant and his enmity burns (Genesis 9:18-28; 3:15). His descendants assert: “We must be in a position to respond to every act of opposition by war with the neighbors of that country which dares to oppose us: but if these neighbors should also venture to stand collectively together against us, then we must offer resistance by a universal war. The principal factor of success in the political is the secrecy of its undertakings: the word should not agree with the deeds of the diplomat” (Protocol VII:3-4).

A great deal of confusion within the circle of this Message is caused by ministers repeating verbatim what the Prophet said instead of obeying him and taking His words back to the Scripture from Genesis to Revelation, and saying what He meant. We must share the faith and eternal Life rather than the letter without the Spirit, which brings death. Some insist there is no physical Serpent’s seed this side of the Flood, but the Bible and the Prophet emphatically state otherwise. They protest, “The seed of life comes from the male, a Serpent’s seed woman could not bear Serpent’s seed children to a son of Noah.” They did so before the Flood and they do so today (Genesis 1:11; 6:1-4; 9:18-27; 10:15-18)? Ham was in the righteous lineage yet his son Canaan was physical Serpent’s seed and accursed of God. Like Cain, he is a wanderer, a citizen of the world, with no inheritance in this life or hope in the world to come. They all have a soul because their first mother Eve had a soul (Genesis 1:11), therefore they are human beings, and although their soul came from God it is not of God. Brother Branham said, “It wasn’t recognized in the genealogies of God’s [the Lamb’s Book of Life], or neither the genealogies of the human race, the genealogies of Adam [the Book of Life], any of the rest of them” (C.O.D., p. 1136.330).

Others say it was not God’s original plan that humans should reproduce by intercourse between a man and his wife. Yet before the Fall God said, “A man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh” (Genesis 2:24). Jesus said, “In the beginning and before the Fall, God made them male and female. Because of this a man shall leave father and mother (so before the Fall God ordained a holy sexual relationship between a naked and unashamed man and his wife to transform them into the father and mother who gave birth to the “man and his wife”) and he shall cleave to his wife: and the two shall be one flesh! Therefore they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder” (Matthew 19:4-6). A man and his wife become one first in mind, then “one flesh” in their offspring through the act of “cleaving . . . for they are no more two, but one flesh whose seed is in itself, and joined together by God,” reproducing fruit after their own kind (Genesis 1:11; I Corinthians 6:16-17).

We have already spoken of Spiritual Serpent’s seed, which is the seed of discrepancy or false doctrine, “the lie” of John 8:40-44 and II Thessalonians 2:7-12, and “the mystery of iniquity” of I John 2:21-24. We explained that conversion to Judaism by Halacha, or Talmudic law cannot change one’s race otherwise Jews might become Semitic as they falsely claim, rather than non-Semitic as the Bible and all Jewish Encyclopedias affirm. Ministers in the circle of this Message invent equally egregious claims, asserting “the genes of the Serpent were carried over into the entire human race.” If this be so, Jesus Christ has to be Serpent’s seed in order to redeem the offspring of Shem, Ham, Japheth and Canaan; Cain and his antediluvian offspring would be His kinsmen, but Adam and the Old Testament saints would be lost. Such carnal reasoning against the faith is a classic illustration of spiritual Serpent’s seed.

Some men teaching the heretical Two Souls replacement theology claim the soul is Serpent’s seed and must be replaced. The seed of the serpent is not a soul, neither souls nor mortal spirit come through sexual reproduction. A still-born child has a body through the relationship between father and mother but no mortal spirit or soul. Hence it was never a human being and is not in the Book of Life. Souls and mortal spirits come from God, not from Satan who is not a creator; and not from father’s sperm or mother’s ovum, otherwise we are believing Charles Darwin’s evolution of species which postulates the spirit of mortal life and human souls somehow evolve from the physical elements and minerals that form the planet. All souls and mortal spirits come from God, but not all souls and spirits are of God. The soul of the physical Serpent’s seed is a spirit like the soul of Jesus Christ or the saintliest of us except that it is not associated with the Book of Adam’s natural life or Book of God’s Spiritual Life. With no tiepost to God’s creative Word in either the first or the last Adam, it has no part in eternity. The souls of the spiritual Serpent’s seed being “without fruit” are blotted from the Book of natural Life, “twice dead, plucked up by the roots . . . to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever”.

All the souls in Adam’s race are potentially redeemable because they are the continuation of God’s creation in Adam, the Book of Life. The souls foreknown as elect of God are all redeemed because they are the continuation of the last Adam, “the beginning of the creation of God,” the Lamb’s Book of Life. Whereas the “saved” trace their ancestry to the first Adam in the garden of Eden, the elect trace their ancestry from the Logos through the first Adam in the garden of Eden to the last Adam in the garden of Gethsemane where He overcame. By grace through faith we are Attributes of the Logos and eternal Life and will grant the “saved” into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment.

When Adam crossed from immortality and incorruption into time he forfeited his dominion, making Satan the god of this evil age and bringing the whole creation subject to mortality and corruption. Over millennia the nature of Satan has pervaded the spiritual and natural realms, increasing his influence because spirits do not die. God takes His man, but never His Holy Spirit, and when Satan takes his man, he leaves his spirit. That lost soul is now a demon he can use to tempt, deceive and torment Adam’s children, so the world cannot “become a better place” before Satan is bound for the millennium.

A nature is not a soul or a spirit; neither is it a physical gene or spoken word. A nature is an innate characteristic or propensity. Everything—animal, vegetable or mineral—has a nature. The nature of God is love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, etc., the nature of a dog is to be faithful to its master, the nature of ice is to be cold and damp, the nature of the world reflects the nature of the god of this world: malice, envy, greed, lust, deception, murder, etc., Eve’s vanity caused the Fall because she chose to bear children by Satan’s scientific reasoning, so when Adam redeemed her he bore her sin upon his shoulders and forfeited his dominion to Satan who became god of this evil age. Consequently our body is born with the soul dead in sin and trespasses, oppressed by nature of this world, and must be quickened from Above. Had Eve waited for God to reveal the secret of natural propagation through her prophet husband, there would have been no Fall and no necessity for a second birth from Above. Her firstborn would have been Jesus; all in Adam’s race would have been elect of God, quickened to eternal Life from birth, and Cain and his race would never have existed.

When the spirit of mortal life and the soul enter our body at birth, the body and spirit become conscious of the world and the things of the world. As we grow in understanding and self-confidence we desire to have to satisfy the senses of our flesh—see, touch, taste, hear and smell, and our mortal spirit—memory, affection, conscience, imagination, and reasoning. Meanwhile, because our soul is under submission to the desires of our ten worldly senses, it is dead in sin and trespasses until it is quickened to the Word for our day. Until we are made alive to the present Truth—what Jesus is doing now, our soul, like our mortal spirit and body, is serving the nature of the world, which is the nature of Satan, the god of this evil age. Thus, the first husband of our soul is the worldly nature of Satan.

I John 2:15-16, “Love not the world, nor the things in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father [or new birth] is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world with its lusts pass away; but he that does the will of God abides forever”.

That old nature ruling the ten senses of your flesh and mortal spirit, which in turn rule your unregenerate soul, has to die before you can be born-again. That old husband must be dead to you before you can consummate the invisible union with the Word of the hour in a new birth.

First you hear the proposal of marriage. “Come unto Me, all you that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest (sabbath) unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30).

Quickly you respond to the call, separating to the Word from your fornication with the world and the things of the world. A betrothal is a marriage, so you “Repent, and are baptized for the remission of sins in the Name of your new Husband, LORD JESUS CHRIST, with the promise that if you abide in Him you shall receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is to the Israelites and to their children, and to we Gentiles who are afar off, even to as many as the Lord our God shall ever call, both Israelites and Gentiles”.

Theologians term the betrothal Justification by grace through faith, for you are not simply forgiven your fornication with the world, your past sins are remitted and you are just. It is as though you never did those things, for they are placed in the sea of God’s forgetfulness never to be remembered any more.

You are looking forward to your wedding day with great anticipation. You put away that old husband, and as you become more acquainted with the nature of your Betrothed, you desire to please the Word. Oh, my, I must not cut my hair or wear clothes that pertain to a man. Or, I must cut out those drinks with the boys. This is called Sanctification. It is a process of putting away or divorce, cleansing your mind for holiness and bringing your body subject by obedience to the revealed Word of God. This will be ongoing throughout your life in this world.

Sometimes you will be tempted and even “backslide.” Old habits die hard, but you press on in the strength of the Lord, with your eye focused on the heavenly Promise and not on your earthly circumstances, for the prize is only to the Overcomer!

At last the great day arrives when you enter a clear revelation of the Word for your day. The Bible becomes a new Book. The Pillar of Fire burns out the lusts of that old worldly nature that held your soul captive to the desires of your flesh and mortal spirit for the things of the world, and the Holy Spirit unites with your soul. “What God has joined together, let not man put asunder.” The wedding band of “agape” has sealed you into Christ to the day of your redemption in glorified flesh. You have the mind of Christ and you are one with the Word, bearing His Life, and pregnant with the Token on display. The marriage is consummated by the baptism with the Holy Ghost which is your new birth.

I Peter 1:22-23, “You have purified [not replaced] your soul in obeying the Truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren . . . being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which lives and abides forever”.

Disobedience to the admonitions of Acts 17:11, Romans 3:4, Galatians 1:8-9, I Thessalonians 5:21 and Revelation 22:18-19 has produced many false doctrines as men added quote upon quote of THUS SAITH THE LORD according to the letter of the Message as the denominational churches stand upon THUS SAITH THE LORD according to the letter of Matthew 28:19 in support of their unscriptural Trinity and false water baptism in three Titles. What they have established is that the spoken Word without the Spirit kills as effectively as the written Word without the Spirit.

When you take his Message back to the written Word as Brother Branham instructed, you will be in the same Spirit as the Prophet and receive the same revelation. And because you have obeyed the Prophet and the Bible you will not conflate a soul with a nature or entertain unscriptural doctrines. Then, instead of parroting his words, you will “quietly trust yourself to Christ and be always ready to answer in a gentle and respectful manner anybody who asks the reason of the hope that is within us . . . In meekness instructing those who oppose themselves; in the hope God may grant them repentance that leads to the acknowledgment of the truth; and that they may escape from the snare of the Devil, after being captured by him to do his will”.

Commenting on Josephus’ Antiquities of the Jews (Book I, 13:2), Brother Branham remarked, “Isn’t it strange that they found great giants in the land after this [flood]? I wish Josephus, the writer, would’ve thought of that. Where’d those giants come from? The seed of the Serpent. The Bible said that he would cause the seed of the Serpent . . . the Serpent had a seed, and the seed of the woman. . . But when she did that, she polluted the whole thing” (Condemnation by Representation, p. 14:6).

“It was not the seed of the Devil; it was the seed of the Serpent. And the Serpent had a seed; the Bible said it had a seed. And it still exists today” (William Branham, C.O.D. p. 400:183). nl71.htm
