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.

Brother Branham cautioned Brethren to pay off any lingering debt because the world is coming on hard times worse than the Great Depression. Taking a magnifying glass I read my own bank balance, and feeling glum remembered the old adage, "there is always someone worse off," and peeked at the account balances of nations. My country is fifth most indebted nation behind the USA, Spain, the UK and Italy on credit was created out of thin air borrowed on nonexistent money loaned at interest. Many third world countries to which we donate aid are billions in Credit. China is at the top of the list, 30% ahead of Japan, and 50% ahead of Germany.

Governments should create their own money and spend it into circulation as a credit. Subservience to 'the City' commits us to borrow "credit" from their banksters and circulate it as debt. Inflation is hereby built in to our economies in order to pay the interest. Nations that claim to be Christian, or Spiritual Israelites who have inherited the blessings of Abraham, are accursed, while pagan nations whose friendship we seek to buy with bribes of foreign aid are blessed. Read Deuteronomy 28:1-14 and ask yourself, "Has God abandoned His people? or have those who believe themselves God's people become His enemy and know it not (Revelation 3:17-20)?

In 1963 Brother Branham said, "The world coming to a place it's falling apart, politically, socially, economically. . . We're borrowed on taxes that'll be paid forty years from today. She's broke. She's bankrupt, the nation: not this nation, but all of them. And there's no way ever getting it back. And it's a trap set exactly to swing this nation into something. And all of you are wise on that. Well, who's got the wealth of the world? Who holds it? . . . Rome holds it" (Testimony, p. 9:20-21).

"For the church system of the Roman Catholic and the Protestant in coming together will control the whole wealth of the world system and force the whole earth into its religious trap, or will kill them, by refusing them the privilege of buying and selling whereby they would make a living. This will be accomplished simply, for the harlot's daughters are all but gone back to her. In the meantime, Rome has acquired nearly all the supplies of gold. The Jews have the bonds and all the paper. At the right time, the harlot will destroy the present day money system by calling in all the paper, and demanding gold. With no gold, the system falls. The Jews will be trapped and come into the alliance, and the harlot church will take over the whole world" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 314:1).

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.

America: The Greatest Menace to Global Stability
November 11, 2006 – The 2006 Angus Reid World Poll: People in 13 countries believe the United States is the greatest threat to global stability, and residents of eight countries consider American foreign policy as the most menacing issue to the world, the Angus Reid World Poll conducted for Maclean's found. Overall, most people in the 20 countries surveyed chose the US as the greatest threat from a list that included Iran, China, Iraq, North Korea, Israel and Russia.

China appears, along with Israel, as the third most threatening country. . . Full story:


No One is Safe: The Ruling Class Unleashed
February 13, 2008 – The Democrats may condemn the Iraq invasion and occupation as the worst "blunder" in our history, but they will not condemn it as the war crime it is. And they keep paying for it. They are not murderers themselves, but every member of Congress who votes to pay for this continuing obscenity is an accomplice to murder and genocide. . .

The Bush administration has announced to the world, and to all Americans, that this is what the United States now stands for: a vicious determination to dominate the world, criminal, genocidal wars of aggression, torture, and an increasingly brutal and brutalizing authoritarian state at home. That is what we stand for. . .

N. American Army created without OK by Congress
February 24, 2008 – In a ceremony that received virtually no attention in the American media, the United States and Canada signed a military agreement February 14 allowing the armed forces from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a domestic civil emergency, even one that does not involve a cross-border crisis.

The agreement, defined as a Civil Assistance Plan, was not submitted to Congress for approval, nor did Congress pass any law or treaty specifically authorizing this military agreement to combine the operations of the armed forces of the United States and Canada in the event of a wide range of domestic civil disturbances ranging from violent storms, to health epidemics, to civil riots or terrorist attacks.

In Canada, the agreement paving the way for the militaries of the US and Canada to cross each other's borders to fight domestic emergencies was not announced either by the Harper government or the Canadian military, prompting sharp protest. . . Full story:


Washington gets a New Colony in the Balkans
February 21, 2008 – In evaluating the recent "declaration of independence" by Kosovo, a province of Serbia, and its immediate recognition as a state by the US, Germany, Britain and France, it is important to know three things.

First, Kosovo is not gaining independence or even minimal self-government. It will be run by an appointed High Representative and bodies appointed by the US, European Union and NATO. An old-style colonial viceroy and imperialist administrators will have control over foreign and domestic policy. US imperialism has merely consolidated its direct control of a totally dependent colony in the heart of the Balkans.

Second, Washington’s immediate recognition of Kosovo confirms once again that US imperialism will break any and every treaty or international agreement it has ever signed, including agreements it drafted and imposed by force and violence on others.

The recognition of Kosovo is in direct violation of such law—specifically UN Security Council Resolution 1244, which the leaders of Yugoslavia were forced to sign to end the 78 days of NATO bombing of their country in 1999. Even this imposed agreement affirmed the "commitment of all Member States to the sovereignty and territorial integrity" of Serbia, a republic of Yugoslavia.

This week’s illegal recognition of Kosovo was condemned by Serbia, Russia, China and Spain.

Thirdly, US imperialist domination does not benefit the occupied people. Kosovo after nine years of direct NATO military occupation has a staggering 60 percent unemployment rate. It has become a center of the international drug trade and of prostitution rings in Europe.

The once humming mines, mills, smelters, refining centers and railroads of this small resource-rich industrial area all sit silent. The resources of Kosovo under NATO occupation were forcibly privatized and sold to giant Western multinational corporations. Now almost the only employment is working for the US/NATO army of occupation or UN agencies. . .

Bush Solicitor General LIED! Barbara Olsen did not call Ted Olsen
February 20, 2008 – David Ray Griffin says the FBI has reported that no such call between Barbara Olsen and Ted Olsen ever took place on 9/11/2001. . .

It was part of the rapidly unraveling scam that is the official story of 9/11. In fact. . . there is zero evidence that any hijackers had commandeered a plane at all. . . there is no "EVIDENCE" of their existence. Which also reveals that mis-information shill, Popular Mechanics, in their 9/11 interview on the Charles Goyette Show months ago, lied when they told us there was DNA evidence of the so-called Muslim hijackers. LIES, all lies. . . Full story:

Comment: It was not technically possible for anyone to call from that plane on their cell phone. Is there any reason to believe Mrs. Olsen or any of the other passengers were on that flight? Investigations have shown that many of the 9/11 passengers had passed from this life years before 2001, while many of the so-called "hijackers" were and are peacefully living and working in their home countries. And I seem to recall photographs of a woman claimed to be Mrs. Olsen overseas and very much alive after 9/11. Besides, there was no DNA!

The question is: "Who arranged for Ted Olsen and Popular Mechanics to lie to Americans, and to the world?


Wernher von Braun's Predictions
January 24, 2008 – The pioneer rocket [Wernher von Braun] scientist laying on his death bed confided in Dr. Carol Rosin his fears about the weaponization of space. He identified the scare tactics that would convince the public to accept that space-based weapons need to be built. . . Von Braun revealed to Dr Rosin a plan to justify weapons in spaced based on hoaxing an extraterrestrial threat. She was also present at meetings in the '70s when the scenario for the Gulf War of the '90s was planned.

When I was a Corporate Manager of Fairchild Industries from 1974 through 1977, I met the late Dr Wernher Von Braun. We first met in early 1974. At that time, Von Braun was dying of cancer but he assured me that he would live a few more years to tell me about the game that was being played—that game being the effort to weaponize space, to control the Earth from space and space itself.

The strategy that Wernher Von Braun taught me was that first the Russians are going to be considered to be the enemy... Then terrorists would be identified, and that was soon to follow. We heard a lot about terrorism. Then we were going to identify third-world country "crazies." We now call them Nations of Concern. But he said that would be the third enemy against whom we would build space-based weapons. The next enemy was asteroids. Now, at this point he kind of chuckled the first time he said it. "Asteroids — against asteroids we are going to build space-based weapons!!" And the funniest one of all was what he called aliens, extraterrestrials. . . He mentioned that extraterrestrials were going to be identified as the final enemy against whom we were going to build space-based weapons back in 1974. . .

Wernher Von Braun actually told me that the spin was a lie—that the premise for space-based weaponry, the reasons that were going to be given, the enemies that we were going to identify—were all based on a lie. . .

In 1977, I was at a meeting in Fairchild Industries in a conference room called the War Room. In that room were a lot of charts on the walls with enemies, identified enemies. There were other more obscure names, names like Saddam Hussein and Khadafi. But we were talking then about terrorists, the potential terrorists. No one had ever talked about this before but this was the next stage after the Russians against whom we were going to build these space-based weapons. . . Well, they continued the conversation about how they were going to antagonize these enemies and that at some point, there was going to be a war in the Gulf, a Gulf War. Now this is 1977, 1977! . . Full story:

Comment: The Report from Iron Mountain on the Possibility and Desirability of Peace, planted such unheard of scenarios in the public mind in 1967: fictitious alternative enemies, a permanent inspection program for disarmament, an international police force, massive global pollution, an open-ended space program aimed at unreachable targets (in 2007 George II said the United States was planning to land men on Mars when the Moon landing was a hoax), an extraterrestrial threat, etc.,

We reported these plans since 1998, and Dr. Peter Beter's disclosures which revealed the hidden hand's achievements in space in far greater detail than Dr. Rosin. As FDR said, "If it happens in politics, it was planned that way".


Jewish Bolsheviks Murdered 66 Million in Russia
July 21, 2007 – How many people did Russia's Bolshevik Communists kill?

Israel's YNET News admits: "at least 20 million."

We mustn't forget that some of greatest murderers of modern times were Jewish.

Here's a particularly forlorn historical date: Almost 90 years ago, between the 19th and 20th of December 1917, in the midst of the Bolshevik revolution and civil war, Lenin signed a decree calling for the establishment of The All-Russian Extraordinary Commission for Combating Counter-Revolution and Sabotage, also known as Cheka. Within a short period of time, Cheka became the largest and cruelest state security organization. Its organizational structure was changed every few years, as were its names: From Cheka to GPU, later to NKVD, and later to KGB.

We cannot know with certainty the number of deaths Cheka was responsible for in its various manifestations, but the number is surely at least 20 million, including victims of the forced collectivization, the hunger, large purges, expulsions, banishments, executions, and mass death at Gulags. Whole population strata were eliminated: Independent farmers, ethnic minorities, members of the bourgeoisie, senior officers, intellectuals, artists, labor movement activists, "opposition members" who were defined completely randomly, and countless members of the Communist party itself. . .

And us, the Jews? An Israeli student finishes high school without ever hearing the name "Genrikh Yagoda," the greatest Jewish murderer of the 20th Century, the GPU's deputy commander and the founder and commander of the NKVD. Yagoda diligently implemented Stalin's collectivization orders and is responsible for the deaths of at least 10 million people. His Jewish deputies established and managed the Gulag system. After Stalin no longer viewed him favorably, Yagoda was demoted and executed, and was replaced as chief hangman in 1936 by Yezhov, the "bloodthirsty dwarf." . .
Full story:

Alexander Solzhenitsyn states flatly: "66 million."

If not exaggerated, Solzhenitsyn asserts that since 1917, the Bolsheviks, continuing under assassin Stalin, through and even after WW2, systematically executed, and inside (and outside) their thousands of Gulags, worked, starved and froze to death, SIXTY-SIX million people, not all, but most of them CHRISTIANS (whom the Bolsheviks hated). This mass death was THE LARGEST REAL "HOLOCAUST" in modern history — but totally unknown today by most Americans, British and western Europeans and absent from our school books. [A. Solzhenitsyn, "Together for Two Hundred Years"]. Of course no publisher in the Western world dares reprint Solzhenitsyn's book in English. . .

Europe told to Open Borders for 20m Asian and African Workers
A subscriber found this newspaper clipping by Andrew Bounds in Brussels on a German website. Unfortunately there was no source given, but its from an English Newspaper giving a report from Brussels. Many Years ago Count Kalergi-Coudenhove (President of the Pan-Europe Federation) said openly. Quote: "We intend to turn Europe into a mixed race of Asians and Negros ruled over by the Jews" (Endquote). The copy reads:

Justice Chief says all skills levels are required.

Europe must open its doors in the next two Decades to the extra 20 Million Workers from Asia & Africa. The EU must lower its barriers and instead build a corridor for those Asians & Africans that are now risking their lives to get here.

Germany, Italy and Hungary need the most immigrants in order to make up for their falling birth deficit. The EU Commission is currently setting up, first in Mali, at a cost of 10 Million Euros an Information Center in which those wishing to emigrate can learn about the entry and work possibilities in the EU. Other such facilities in other countries will follow. Further, said Frattini, We must not see this immigration as a danger, but as an enrichment and an unalterable Phenomena of today's world.

Comment: "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" (Address by Rabbi Emanuel Rabinovich to the Emergency Council of European Rabbis in Budapest on January 12, 1952, originally published in full Common Sense and brought to the attention of Captain William Guy Carr by the Canadian Intelligence Service; who published it verbatim in Pawns in the Game (pp. 104-106). One of many similar quotes by prominent Jews like Theodore Herzl, Rabbi Reichorn, Dr. Oscar Levy, Bernard Lazare, Chief Rabbi of the United States Stephen Wise and Maurice Samuel, inspired by the Talmud. Jesus Messiah, who abhorred the Talmud, prophesied this evil for our day in Matthew 24:37.

"We Jews must realize that our party's most powerful weapon is racial tensions. By propounding into the consciousness of the dark races that for centuries they have been oppressed by whites, we can mold them to the program of the Communist Party. In America we will aim for subtle victory. While inflaming the Negro minority against the whites, we will endeavor to instill in the whites a guilt complex for their exploitation of the Negros. We will aid the Negroes to rise in prominence in every walk of life, in the professions and in the world of sports and entertainment. With this prestige, the Negro will be able to intermarry with the whites and begin a process which will deliver America to our cause" (Israel Cohen, A Racial Program for the Twentieth Century, 1912. Also in the Congressional Record, Vol. 103, p. 8559, June 7, 1957).


Mr. Lincoln the Racist
Several years ago, columnist Joseph Sobran wrote: "When Lincoln finally did grab the slavery issue in 1854, he again followed (Henry) Clay in advocating gradual emancipation, combined with a program of colonization—resettling former slaves outside of the United States. He expressly opposed political and social equality for Negroes in this country. They should be equal all right, but not here. . . Lincoln's segregationist views are soft-peddled, shrugged off, explained away, or simply ignored. . . the Fantasy Lincoln must be maintained at all costs." And this is exactly what many establishment scholars today do. They maintain the cottage industry that promotes the "Fantasy Lincoln" while conveniently ignoring his racist views— views they seem to find abhorrent in anyone else yet perfectly alright in Mr. Lincoln.
Full story:

Comment: Christ's end-time Bride must base their understanding upon the Absolute of truth, not the fantasy of folk tales. Mr. Lincoln broke the US Republic with his bloody Civil War, dividing the nation between North and South as required by the City of London. It is still divided as the South remains under martial law, and in the very near future the North, too, will be under martial law.


Yellowstone Mystery: Where are all the rabbits?
New York, February 17, 2008 – The US Wildlife Conservation Society is trying to figure out why jack rabbits have vanished from Yellowstone National Park.

The report, published in the journal Oryx, said there have been no confirmed jack rabbit sightings in Yellowstone since 1991 and only three in Grand Teton National Park since 1978. Historical records indicate that white-tailed jack rabbits were once abundant in Greater Yellowstone, a 23,166-square-mile ecosystem that contains the Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks, the group said Thursday in a release. . . Full story:

Comment: The rabbits have gone because the caldera is active and an eruption may be triggered by tectonic activity that will sink Los Angeles.


The Virtues of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide
February 25, 2008 – Why are these people doing this? Why has Al Gore positioned himself to become a historical laughing stock, and why have a few hundred United Nations climate change-funded "scientists" joined them? The reason surely is not global warming. . .

If Al Gore were truly alarmed about hydrocarbon use, he would be clamoring for nuclear power plants. The construction of just 50 nuclear installations similar to that partially completed at Palo Verde near Phoenix would erase most of the US carbon dioxide output — and would also erase most of the US trade deficit at the same time. . . Al Gore. . . has already accumulated astonishing personal wealth during his campaign against world energy technology and is now a principal in a new corporation being formed to profit from public fear of global warming. Meanwhile, UN bureaucrats are mesmerized by the prospect of taxing and rationing world energy supplies — a position of virtually unlimited wealth and power that would give them life-and-death control over both world technology and the human race. . . Full story: Forget global warming.

Comment: The program is de-industrialization, famine, impoverishment, the elimination of a middle class, disempowerment, massive global depopulation, and a return to serfdom for most people under Lucifer's totalitarian one world government.


Pentecost Types the Gentile Dispensation

Genesis 1:27-28, "God created mankind in His own image: in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them, and He blessed them".

God's purpose in the creation of man is to (Gk. 'phaneroo') make His true character so thoroughly understood by teaching that He becomes visibly manifest in the material form of His Body, the Church, who are His Attributes reflecting the glory of His Being in whom as His glorified Family He will be worshipped throughout eternity. This is the true Temple or dwelling place of the Lord God foreordained from the foundation of the world, and He showed Moses the pattern in conformity to which it must be made. Moses and Solomon built its representation with human hands, but as Paul explained, "God who made the world and all it contains, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples built by human hands" (Acts 17:24). "We are to come to Christ, that living Stone, rejected by men but chosen by God and precious, and be built up as living stones into a Spiritual house, a dedicated priesthood, to offer Spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ" (I Peter 2:4-5; I Corinthians 7:19).

Thus "we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God has foreordained that we should live in" becoming "written epistles" of the Word for our day (Ephesians 2:10; II Corinthians 3:2-3). This is the creation of God, whose Head and beginning is Jesus Messiah, born of a virgin just 2,000 years ago. His mystic Body, the Church, is the continuation of the same creation through her second birth by the spoken Word of Promise (Revelation 3:14).

Although we are individual members of Christ's Body with different abilities, personal obligations and responsibilities to the Brethren, we were all baptized into the Body by a measure of the faith commonly ordained to meet challenges peculiar to our day. So the corporeal Body is built up of nine dispensations of grace each defined by the measure of faith ordained to the gift of Christ for each Age. Christ's gift to the Church is the five-fold ministry of men who are apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, or teachers. Their vocation is to equip those who are saints for the task of ministering toward the building up of the Body of Christ by admonishing, helping and encouraging the Brethren, supporting their pastor and living so that their Token of the Life of Christ is on public display, "trusting Christ in their hearts as Lord and ready always to answer anybody who asks for a reason of the hope that is within them, yet with gentleness and reverence" (I Peter 3:15). Christ's Bride is in the stature of a perfect Man, God's second Masterpiece built of lively stones.

Christ's gift of the five-fold ministry will be in the Body "until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and that understanding of that Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: that we should no longer be babes, swung back and forth, and carried here and there with every wind of doctrine that springs from human craftiness and ingenuity for devising error. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we should grow up in every way toward He who is the Head, into Christ" (Ephesians 4:13-15).

The accompanying diagram illustrates how the pattern of God's second Bible, which Enoch wrought in stone before the Flood, has been transformed into the "substance of things [God had] hoped for"—a true living Temple. The double line at its base signifies the "foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone" (Ephesians 2:20; I Corinthians 3:11-13). This we call Alpha, or the Word at the beginning, which was the brief holy convocation of Pentecost (AD33-53) wherein the saints received and understood the pure Word of God (Jude 1:3).

The Bible was sealed with Seven Seals unto the time of the end (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4), so from Pentecost until the close of the Church Ages the saints had only PART-Word with Christ as a mediator for their ignorance of the fulness. So long as one understood and was living the Word for his day Christ received His faith, placed his ignorance under the Blood and baptized him into his position in the Body. As Jesus explained in Revelation 1 to 3, He sent an "angel" or major apostle to each of the seven Church Ages inspired by a different measure of the Spirit to rebuke and correct those who had fallen away from the Message of the preceding Age, then reveal the Word for the new Age.

The evidence of the baptism with the Holy Spirit or new birth is a clear revelation of the Word for the hour, this causes our life to display a particular virtue of the Life of Christ as indicated on the diagram (II Peter 1:1-8). The seven Church Ages represent Revelation 2 and 3. The world church system apostatized in 1963 "and knows it not." This is illustrated by the breach between the close of Laodicea and the Capstone and represented by Revelation 4 and 5 which show the Blood removed from the Mercy Seat made it a Judgment Seat. Now Jesus advanced from the Outer Court where the bloody body of the Lamb had lain on the altar of sacrifice as a memorial, claimed the Book of Redemption, tore open its Seals, and sat down on the Judgment Seat. He is no longer in the office of Son of God and Mediator but as Son of Man He is Judge (John 5:27).

In Revelation 10:1-6 (I Thessalonians 4:14-16) the Lord Himself descended, placing judgment on the beast of Papal Rome, on the United States of America (the image of Imperial Rome) and her (once) Protestant daughter churches, which are the image of Papal Rome (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4). At this point Brother Branham received His "Elijah" anointing to reveal the mysteries of the seven thunders of Revelation 10:3-7 which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals. It is these Divinely revealed "mystery-truths" that are literally turning the hearts of the children back to the apostolic faith (Malachi 4:5-6).

The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in WORD form (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:1-7). "The restoration of all things spoken by the mouth of all God's holy prophets since the world began" is the fulness of the Word which is Christ, the Logos. Brother Branham's Message is the "Shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 calling the wise and foolish virgin out from the world church system into Christ for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.

Born of the fulness of the Word, Christ's end-time Bride is forming the Capstone of the Pyramid. As Jesus Christ, "the Head of the corner" was rejected by the builders, Christ's end-time Bride will be "set at nought" by the world church system as they "crucify unto themselves the Son of God afresh, and put Him to an open shame" (Hebrews 6:6).

The corn of wheat fell to the ground and died on Calvary, but within three days it rose again and brought forth the Alpha Bride of Pentecost. The apostolic saints sowed and their Message brought forth, "a hundredfold, sixty, and thirty fold" in the first three Church Ages as the faith was hybrid with Jewish fables, Gentile myths and organizational creeds until it, too, fell into the ground and died. It did not revive until God inspired Martin Luther, the angel to the Sardis Church Age, with the mighty revelation, "the just shall live by faith" (Romans 1:17; Galatians 3:11; Hebrews 10:38).

Brother Martin Luther started the reformation of the Roman Catholic system of worship in which the corn of wheat put forth leaves, then the tassel in Philadelphia, and the shuck in Laodicea. In the third day God sent forth the Prophet William Branham whose ministry sowed for the "latter rain" and brought forth original grain who will manifest the Sons of God and be translated. He is Alpha and Omega, the Word at the beginning and the same Word restored at the end; He was not the PART-Word that made up the Church Ages in between. All seven Church Ages are over, and since we now have the perfect interpretation of the Word we are in the holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the Pentecostal Feast and unlike the Church Age saints we do no servile work presuming to interpret God's Word.

In Ephesians 1:3-14 Paul expounds Genesis 1:27-28 and God's purpose, "How we praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every blessing in the Logos because we belong to Christ, even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless in His Presence. In love He has predestinated us to be recognized as His children through Jesus Christ according to the kind intent of His own will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He has bestowed on us in the beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood and the forgiveness of trespasses, to the measure of the riches of His grace; which He lavished on us, making known to us in all wisdom and insight the secret of His purpose, according to His kind intention which he proposed in Christ: a plan to be brought to completion in the fulness of times (Gk. 'kairos,' opportunity, or "once in a lifetime" times. See Newsletter #286) to unite everything together in Christ, things in heaven, and things on earth."

"In Christ we too were made His Heritage, being predestinated according to His purpose, who works out everything in agreement with the design of His own will, so that we, the first to put our hope in Christ, might bring praise to His glory. In Him you also, after listening to the Message of Truth, the good news of your salvation, have as believers in Him been sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, which is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory".

The expression, "In the image of God He created him," with no mention of the word "likeness," shows us that in God's great thinking mankind received the dignity of His image as an Attribute of the Logos, which is His eternal, unchanging thoughts expressed. That is we, our soul, is a spirit as God is a Spirit, but the perfection of His "likeness" in us has been reserved for the consummation, because that is the Christ-like character to which we attain only by overcoming adversity and acquire for ourselves as individuals by the exercise of our free moral agency in diligent imitation of God. The possibility of attaining to perfection was granted to Adam's race "in the beginning" through the dignity of the divine image with the perfect realization of the divine "likeness" being reached in the end by becoming a written epistle of the present Truth or recognizing our day and manifesting its Message in our life. Thus works are faith expressed (James 2:18).

"It is at the resurrection that the Royal Seed will see many royal seeds like unto Himself, and they will be even as He is, for says John, "we shall be like Him." This is what John the Baptist was referring to when He said that Jesus would gather the wheat into the garner. That was the resurrection where the redeemed who had been elected unto eternal life came in" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 283; I John 3:2).

Our Lord will appear when that last elected member to the body of Christ comes in, and manifest Himself in his resurrected and translated Body (John 6:37-39). Philippians 3:21, "He will transform and fashion anew the body of our humiliation to conform and be like the body of His glory and majesty, by exerting that power which enables Him even to subject everything to Himself." Then we shall be "like Him" and manifest that we are the Sons of God (Ephesians 1:19-23; Romans 8:19).

I John 2:28-3:3, "Now, little children, remain permanently in Him so that when He is (Gk. 'Phaneroo') manifested to reveal His true character, we may have confidence and bold assurance, and not be ashamed and shrink from Him at His (Gk. 'parousia') Coming. If you are sure that Christ is absolutely righteous, [conforming to the Father's will in purpose, thought and action], you will be just as confident that every one who does righteousness [and therefore in like manner conforms to the divine will] is born of Him".

"See, what an incredible quantity of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be named and called and accounted the Sons of God! And so we are! The reason the world does not recognize us, is that it does not acknowledge Him. Beloved, we are right now the Sons of God, and it is not (Gk. 'Phaneroo') made clear what we shall be: but we know that, when He (Gk. 'Phaneroo') is manifested [in us] we shall be in His likeness; for we shall see Him as He really is. And every one who has this hope in Him purifies himself, even as He is undefiled and guiltless."

John points out with the utmost certainty, that not only was the end of all things to be hoped for, but also the likeness to God. "We shall walk with Him in white, for we are worthy." We have identified ourselves with Him on earth and He will identify Himself with us in the New Jerusalem. God is going to reward those who follow His advice in Revelation 3:4-5. When Peter, James and John saw Him on Mount Transfiguration His clothes were as white as light. That is how the saints are going to be clothed. Their garments will be shining, exceedingly white. "Fine linen is the righteousnesses of saints".

Now we shall consider the Pentecostal Feast from Leviticus 23.

On the third day after the Passover, the sheaf of the firstfruits of the barley harvest was waved by the priest. By this act Israel consecrated the whole of the harvest unto the Lord, and were only permitted to use it when they received it back as a Gift from Him. This wave sheaf represented Christ who was lifted up on the Cross as Moses lifted up the serpent before the people in the wilderness showing sin was judged (Numbers 21:8-9). Jesus was waved before the Father and accepted in that God raised Him from the dead for the justification of everyone who comes to the Father by faith in the Son. Like the first-born Son, the firstfruits of the harvest was considered the choicest. Their acceptance consecrated the whole of the harvest.

Jesus was the firstfruits of the Old Testament saints who rose after His resurrection, and the New Testament saints who are Christ's at His parousia — that's NOW (I Corinthians 15:23). We becoming one with the Bread of Life or finished product of the wheat as the gift of the Holy Spirit in a new birth. Soon there will be another resurrection: the sleeping New Testament saints will be raised and waved as a loaf baked with leaven while we who are alive and remain will be waved in the manifestation of the Sons of God as a second leavened loaf, then we shall be changed in the atoms to meet Christ in the air.

The Sheaf Wave Offering introduced the Feast of Firstfruits, or Weeks: better known as Pentecost. Whereas the former festival marked the absolute beginning of the grain harvest, with barley, the Pentecostal Feast marked its completion with the reaping of wheat. It was divided into nine divisions, beginning with the last six days of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which represented the primitive Church who held and understood the pure Word of God undefiled. Seven rests or sabbaths followed, representing the seven different baptisms of the Holy Ghost, or new births that distinguish the seven Church Ages. Moses and Joshua led Israel to a place where they could find natural rest for their body and mortal spirit. Jesus said, "Come unto Me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and you will find Spiritual sabbath for your soul" (Matthew 11:27-29). The sabbath for Christians is a rest for the soul, or new birth. When we enter our Spiritual Promise, we've ceased from our own works. But our sabbath can only be observed if we're in God's provided Place of worship, in Christ the Word, but the living Word for our day, not the Word for the days of Luther, Wesley, or the Pentecostals; just as Israel's sabbath can only be observed in the Promised Land, outside which the Old Covenant is of no effect.

These seven rests or Church Ages were followed by another rest on the fiftieth day, which is this present holy convocation wherein: "the mystery of God is finished," the apostolic faith is restored, and God's elect are called out from all man-made systems into oneness with the fullness of the Word. It's called an holy convocation because unlike the Church Age saints, who presumed to interpret God's Word, we do no servile work as we have "the true sayings of God" who sent us a prophet with THUS SAITH THE LORD, that finished the mystery of God by the revelation of the Seven Seals to bring Christ's end-time Bride to maturity by agreement with the fulness of the Word, for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.

As we study the types in Leviticus 23:15-22, we discover that in the fiftieth day after the presentation of the Wave Sheaf offering (which was fulfilled in the resurrection of Jesus Christ), "a new grain offering of two loaves baked with leaven" was to be waved before the Lord. One loaf represents that which is perfect—made manifest in his living Bride, the other represents the Church Age saints—who manifested that which was in part, back in the days when Christ was a Mediator.

The end-time Bride under pre-eminence to the Fullness of the Word by her revelation of the Seven Seals will be waved before the Lord at the manifestation of the Sons of God, in behalf of our brethren who fell asleep since Pentecost. We are all one body, and without us, the sleeping saints cannot be made perfect, or glorified. Together we are waved before the Lord as the finished product—grain prepared for food. The Church is symbolized as two loaves baked with leaven, on account of our sinful flesh, for all are not yet glorified.

Leaven represents sin. Because of the Eve's sin, all are born in sin, shaped in iniquity, and come into the world speaking lies. On account of the leaven of our sin-born bodies we who are alive and remain cannot be offered on the altar. This proves the true Church does not go through the Tribulation. Because Christ is accepted, we too are accepted, and when we change in the atoms, this corruptible flesh puts on incorruption, mortality puts on immortality, and we lose the leaven.

Pentecost types the harvest of the firstfruits or elect of all Gentiles in Adam's race. The firstfruits of the Gospel sowing is the harvest of the true Church. The Church Age saints resurrect and the wise virgin or true Church of the end-time will be translated before the Tribulation period when God turns back to Israel. nl516.htm

The Original Sin

Bible Believers' Newsletter #515
"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.

In this Newsletter we will consider the Fall, and what really happened in the garden of Eden.

You know, the Lord placed every one in Adam's race on free moral agency and on a level playing field—even with the seed of the Serpent who are far wiser in the ways of this world than the children of Light, since they are the vicarious children of the god of this evil age. God is no respecter of persons. He gave Moses, Isaiah and Jeremiah, Jesus, Paul and Brother Branham no special privileges in this respect. We must each confront and overcome adversity, sinner or saint.

The Lord does not place His saints on a flowery bed of ease, for "the wicked prosper and all who deal very treacherously are happy," while "all who will live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution." If anything, the sinner has the advantage in this world. His material or sensual blessings are seen in the here and now and make no call on faith, but he is a creature of time, while we are even now seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.

Then cheer, my brothers cheer, our trials will soon be o'er
Our loved ones we shall meet, shall meet upon the golden shore
We're pilgrims and we're strangers here, we're seeking a city to come
The life-boat soon is coming to gather the Jewels home.
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


What FBI Whistle-Blower Sibel Edmonds found in Translation
February 17, 2008 – Former FBI translator turned whistle-blower tells a chilling story of corruption at Washington's highest levels—sale of nuclear secrets, shielding of terrorist suspects, illegal arms transfers, narcotics trafficking, money laundering, espionage. She may be a first-rate fabulist, but Ms. Edmonds' account is full of dates, places and names.

And if she is to be believed, a treasonous plot to embed moles in American military and nuclear installations and pass sensitive intelligence to Israeli, Pakistani and Turkish sources was facilitated by figures in the upper echelons of the State and Defense Departments. Her charges could be easily confirmed or dismissed if classified government documents were made available to investigators. But Congress has refused to act, and the Justice Department has shrouded Ms. Edmonds' case in the state-secrets privilege. . .

After five years of thwarted legal challenges and fruitless attempts to launch a congressional investigation, Sibel Edmonds is telling her story, though her defiance could land her in jail. . . Full story:


More Evidence of Pre-9/11 Inside Trading: Follow the Money? God forbid
February 10, 2008 – Why was the cashing out of billions of dollars just before 9/11 never investigated? Had an investigation been done into the crime of failing to file the "currency transaction reports" in August 2001, then we would know who made the cash withdrawals in $100 bills amounting to the $5 billion surge.

When reviewing the record of July and August of 2001, Bill Bergman noticed a $5 billion surge in the currency component of the M1 money supply—the third largest such increase since 1947. Bergman asked about this anomaly—and was removed from his investigative duties. . . As a financial market analyst for the Federal Reserve, he was assigned in 2003 to review the record of July and August of 2001. He noticed an unusual surge in the currency component of the M1 money supply (cash circulating outside of banks) during that period. The surge totaled over $5 billion above the norm for a two-month increase.

The increase in August alone was the third largest single monthly increase since 1947, even after a significantly above-average month in July. . . Bergman's supervisor instructed him to follow up on an unanswered question he had raised pertaining to an August 2, 2001 letter from the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve to the 12 Reserve Banks. This letter urged scrutiny of suspicious activity reports. Bergman learned of the pervasiveness of the warnings of the 9/11 attacks, and wondered how thoroughly these warnings had permeated the financial system.

In this capacity as Federal Reserve investigative point-man, and with his money-laundering portfolio being guided by his supervisor's directive, he asked the Board why they had issued their August 2, 2001 directive, and whether this related to any heightened intelligence of a terrorist threat. His position was then eliminated, and a crucial investigation was terminated before it could even begin. . . Full story:


Holocaust™ Reparations Bill in Congress could cost Americans 200 BILLION DOLLARS
The Holocaust Insurance Accountability Act of 2007 (H.R. 1746) is now snaking its way thru committees, in preparation for what is to quite possibly be a huge extortion of money from the American tax payer.

Copied from the bill is this:

Experts estimate that the value in 2006 of unpaid life, annuity, endowment, and dowry insurance theft from European Jewry from the Holocaust and its aftermath ranges between $17,000,000,000 and $200,000,000,000. . . This act will give Holocaust™ survivors, heirs, dependents, and others, access to US courts for the purpose of entertaining legal actions against insurance companies, even when those claims have already been denied by European Courts. . . .

What You didn't know about this Woman
In reality Benazir Bhutto's status as an icon of freedom and democracy was an illusion. "[H]er two periods in office as prime minister (1988-90 and 1993-96) were marked by economic collapse, suppression of the press, human rights abuses and appalling corruption," wrote the National Review (September 20, 2007). Her first administration was accused of "having one of the world's worst records of custodial deaths, killings and torture," said the Observer (December 30, 2007).

During her second term, Transparency International called Pakistan the second-most corrupt country in the world. Four countries have launched criminal investigations into the various bank accounts maintained by Bhutto and her husband (nicknamed "Mr. 10 Percent" after how much he routinely skimmed off government contracts—amounting to somewhere around $1.5 billion). Strong evidence points to her having ordered the highly suspicious murder of her brother in 1996 after he challenged her leadership of the Pakistan's People's Party, of which she had declared herself "president for life."

Under her leadership, Islamism flourished. Under-funded state schools opened the door for the rise of radical religious schools. Islamists milked their favorite recruiting tool for all they could. . . This is the woman the [US] State Department pressured to return home from exile to reclaim power . . . It exposes America's marriage to an idea that continues to underpin the "war on terror" long after it has proven to be disastrously false. . . Full story:

Mr. Lincoln the Infidel
Just as, over the years, we have all been treated to the ethereal fables of Mr. Lincoln as the "great emancipator" of blacks, so have also been treated to many stories about his supposed Christian faith. The problem with all of this is the most patriotic and conservative folks have bought into this hook, line, and sinker. I talked several years ago with a conservative man who informed me that Lincoln "got saved" in the White House. I asked him for some evidence and then sought to go a little into the true nature of Lincoln's character. At that point, he informed me that he "didn't have time for all this." Conversation ended. He had no evidence to back up what he said and I had just punctured the aura of secular holiness that surrounded his secular saint, and he wasn't happy with that. He really didn't want to be confronted with any facts that might force him to change his opinion. . . Full story:

This Medication may cause You to think for Yourself
Warning: As a nurse I am shattering the myth of modern medicine. Medical protocol is determined by what's most profitable, which means "managing" diseases with medication rather than curing them.

Since graduating with honors in 1990 from one of the top 10 nursing schools in the US, I have learned the inside truth about Western Medicine - a truth that most doctors and nurses are totally unaware of. Like myself they chose their profession with good intentions, believing it was valiant, but this is a powerful deception hiding a villainous truth. . .

The Original Sin

There were many trees in the garden of Eden, including the tree of Life and the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. The Fall was not caused by eating natural fruit, which was permitted, and nothing is recorded in Genesis 3 about eating an apple; we read only about partaking of fruit of the tree of Knowledge. Therefore, it is important for us to know who and what the tree of Knowledge was.

In Genesis 3:7 we read, "And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked: and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves skirts." Something terrible had happened. Satan's promise was half fulfilled but not quite as expected; they had developed a self consciousness of their nakedness and of the guilt of their genitalia, which hitherto had been public but which they now considered private and sought to hide from each another, and from the Lord. You will notice, they did not blindfold their eyes or cover their mouth, but veiled their guilty reproductive organs that instead of bringing life, introduced death into the world. Guilt-conscious, their intimate relationship with God is replaced by distrustful, selfish, servile fear, as the first common act of sin passes over to a second, and they seek to hide themselves and their sin amongst the trees of the garden.

Genesis 3 portrays the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life. Every man and woman understands temptation of the senses, so Eve's admission, "the serpent beguiled me, and I did eat" should be understood by every adult person. When a girl or a boy is entrapped and beguiled, we know it was not an ice-cream or apple they ate.

The apostle Paul certainly knew what happened in the garden of Eden. Otherwise he could not have admonished the Corinthian church: "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his craftiness, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ" (II Corinthians 11:3). In view of the Fall, the apostle writes further, "And Adam was not deceived, but the woman, being deceived, was in the transgression" (I Timothy 2:14).

Directly after it happened, the Lord God told Eve, "I will greatly multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children. . ." (Genesis 3:16). This statement tells us what really happened. It was not meals she was to eat in pain as one might suppose had the transgression been epicurean; and neither Adam nor yet any woman has conceived by eating fruit. God knew what took place, and where punishment should be pronounced. Therefore as a memorial of the original sin, and under normal circumstances, women give birth in pain. They don't suffer toothache at mealtimes. Proverbs 30:18-20, "Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eats, and wipes her orifice, and says, I have done no wickedness."

Birth-pains remind women of the original sin, "for the woman being deceived was in the transgression," and lost her co-equality with man (Genesis 3:16; I Timothy 2:8-15). Under the Old Covenant, circumcision in the male organ of generation recognised that because of the Fall corruption is inherently transmitted by our sexual conception (Psalm 51:5), and symbolised an Israelite man's severance from nature's defilement to a state of consecrated fellowship with God. Hereby an unmarried Israelite woman came under the Covenant by the token of her father, and a married woman came under the token of her husband (I Corinthians 11:3-16; Ephesians 5:20-23). So "God's holy One, whose flesh should not see corruption" was "born of a virgin" (Psalm 16:10; Isaiah 7:14). When God made a Covenant with Abraham and his natural seed He required circumcision, "This is My covenant, which you shall keep, between Me and you and your seed after you: every male child among you shall be circumcised" (Genesis 17:10-14). Every soul who refused circumcision was "cut off" from His people because he did not have the token of the Covenant.

In Jeremiah 9:24-25 we read, "THUS SAITH THE LORD, the days are coming when I will punish all these circumcised with the uncircumcised; Egypt, Judah, Edom, the children of Ammon, Moab, and the Semitic Arabs who dwell in the desert and cut the edge of their beard: for all these nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in the heart." Three classes are distinguished here, the Covenant people, their Serpent seed half brothers, their Semitic Ammonite, Moabite and Arabian cousins, and Gentile Egyptians. All of these nations were uncircumcised in spite of a circumcision in the flesh, (which from Israel's standpoint was an unjustifiable imitation of the sacred sign of the Covenant), while the whole house of Israel, including Judah, is uncircumcised in heart and ears and essentially no different from the heathen nations without the token. From this it is evident that the only means of escape from the threatened punishment is a living and truly productive knowledge of the Lord (Jeremiah 9:22-23).

In Genesis 17:12-13 and Exodus 12:43-49 we learn that every Israelite and every Gentile of Adam's race must have the token of circumcision in the flesh before he can partake of the Passover, which the Serpent's seed are forbidden to eat. However John Hyrcanus compelled them to "circumcise their genitals, and make use of the laws of the Jews; and they were so desirous of living in the country of their forefathers, that they submitted to the use of circumcision, (25) and of the rest of the Jewish ways of living; at which time therefore this befell them, that they were hereafter no other than Jews" (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, XIII, 9:1).

(Note 25: "This account of the Idumeans admitting circumcision, and the entire Jewish law, from this time, or from the days of Hyrcanus, is confirmed by their entire history afterward (Antiquities XIV, 8:1; XV, 7:9; Wars of the Jews, II, 3:1; IV, 4:5). This, in the opinion of Josephus, made them proselytes of justice, or entire Jews, as here and elsewhere (Antiquities, XIV, 8:1). However, Antigonus, the enemy of Herod, though Herod were derived from such a proselyte of justice for several generations, will allow him to be no more than a half Jew (XV, 15:2). But still, take out of Dean Prideaux, at the year 129, the words of Ammouius, a grammarian, which fully confirm this account of the Idumeans in Josephus: "The Jews," says he, are such by nature, and from the beginning, whilst the Idumeans were not Jews from the beginning, but Phoenicians and Syrians; but being afterward subdued by the Jews, and compelled to be circumcised, and to unite into one nation, and be subject to the same laws, they were called Jews." Dio also says, as the Dean there quotes him, from Book XXXVI, p. 37, "That country is called Judea, and the people Jews; and this name is given also to as many others as embrace their religion, though of other nations." But then upon what foundation so good a governor as Hyrcanus took upon him to compel those Idumeans either to become Jews, or to leave the country, deserves great consideration. I suppose it was because they had long ago been driven out of the land of Edom, and had seized on and possessed the tribe of Simeon, and all the southern parts of the tribe of Judah, which was the peculiar inheritance of the worshippers of the true God without idolatry, as the reader may learn from Reland, Palestine, Part I, p. 154, 305; and from Prideaux, at the years 140 and 165).

Before one is fit to celebrate our "Passover," which is to partake the Lord's Supper and footwashing under the New Covenant, he or she must be circumcised—not in the flesh—but in heart and ears, and our Token, unlike that of the Israelite, must be on display for it is the Life of Christ generated by the Spirit of Christ within the individual believer. Whereas the Israelite woman was "saved" under the Token of her father or her husband, "the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the Token of his Christian wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified under the Token of her Christian husband" (I Corinthians, 7:11-19).

There is no shame in displaying our Token, and our Token is not the Token unless it is on public display. Now the soul that refuses the Message of God's Prophet in this day is "cut off" and "shall be destroyed from among the people" (Malachi 4:6; Acts 3:23; Revelation 22:17-19). This is so because since the Seven Seals are revealed, Christ is no longer a Mediator for ignorance, and without this Message he is "uncircumcised in heart and ears" and cannot have the Token, which is the new birth by the Fullness of the Word, aside from which he cannot be restored to fellowship with our Lord Jesus Christ who is the Word (Matthew 17:11; Acts 3:21-23; I Corinthians 13:10; John 17:20-26).

The Lord God pronounced judgment on the serpent for his wickedness and said, "Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all cattle and every beast of the field; upon your belly you shall go, and eat dust all the days of your life" (Genesis 3:14). Up to that time, the serpent walked upright, else the statement "upon your belly you shall go" would make no sense (Ezekiel 28:13-14).

Most important is the following verse, "And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel." According to the testimony of the Lord God, there would be two different seeds. He spoke of the seed of the serpent, and also of its archenemy, both seeds would come through the woman. In Scripture, seed speaks of offspring, and there were in Eve's womb two different seeds as there are two different seeds in the church.

Satan cannot beget nor can he create. He is a sexless, fallen spirit-being. Therefore he had to make use of the beast which was closest to man and could even speak. Only after the curse, did the serpent lose its upright human form and become a reptile.

Genesis three records the conversation between the serpent and Eve. It began with the well-known question, "Has God said?" The devil always uses the same approach: planting doubts about God's Word. Thus he misconstrued It, and entangled Eve. "You shall not surely die. . . Your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." Uplifted at the prospect of teaching her husband the secret knowledge of sex — how they might fulfill God's Command to "multiply and fill the earth," Eve fell for Satan's lie. What benefit was this knowledge of good and evil that separated them from God's Presence? Since that time the eyes of each one of us have been opened to know good and evil whereby we are accountable to God (Romans 5:12-14).

The human attributes are found in the genes which actually lie in the chromosomes inherited through begetting in the sex act. In this way, Satan was able to inject his nature vicariously through the serpent into the human race in Cain and his lineage. Eve's transgression caused Adam to forfeit our dominion over earth to death. As we are conceived according to Satan's worldly wisdom, we are born with a nature of this world, which is the nature of the god of this evil age. Therefore the Redeemer had to come into human flesh "That through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the Devil, and deliver them who, through fear of death, were all their lifetime subject to bondage" (Hebrews 2:14-15). Conquering Satan and death, and rising the third day, Jesus announced victoriously, "I have the keys of death and hell" (Revelation 1:18).

God's commandment was, "Be fruitful, and multiply" (Genesis 1:28), so He instituted marriage and joined the first pair together. The tragedy lies in the breaking of this first marriage, when Eve listened to one she knew to be inspired by Satan, and in correcting him made God's prohibition even stronger by adding, "neither shall you touch the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil," which is Satan. Hereby she usurped authority over her husband, who was the spoken Word of God. Every species was to bring forth after his own kind, but in Eve's womb was a creature, cross-bred from Satan through the serpent, and not in the original creation. Whatever does not derive from His thoughts can never submit to the Word of God, which is His thoughts expressed. Eve then gave herself to Adam.

Adam knew Eve was no more a virgin, and although she should have been burnt as says the law (which is forever written in heaven), he was not deceived, but he loved her and quickly took her to himself. Eve was dying, having crossed the Word from eternity into time but as a son of God Adam knew he could no more be lost than God can be lost. He also knew that Eve was part of him and if he joined her in death, God must somehow redeem him, so in dying he would 'save' Eve. A perfect type of Christ.

Thus, the Fall took place: Eve gave herself to the serpent, then had her first relation with Adam. From both unions, which happened in quick succession, children were born: Cain and Abel.

In this day, 'twins' are born of different fathers. The best-known cases happened in Sweden and France. In Stockholm, when Mrs. Bjoerlen gave birth on the same day to a black, and to a blond blue-eyed baby, her husband refused to take financial responsibility for the child which clearly was not his. In the trial Mrs. Bjoerlen admitted to having a black lover. On the same day she had known both men. In France, a Mrs. Duval also gave birth to a white and a black child, and 26 year old Marseilles prostitute, Yvette Landru, gave birth to one white, one Negro, and one Chinese. Medical records are replete with cases of superfetation in humans, where a woman with multiple ovum is fertilized by sperm of separate insemination. The offspring are not truly twins but half-brothers or half-sisters. True twins result from simultaneous fertilization of one ovum by two sperm.

Whoever reads Genesis 3:15 carefully, will see the Lord God had spoken of the two seeds, or offspring right after the Fall. So from the very beginning, there were these two lineages: the ungodly line of Cain and the godly line found in Seth.

Not once is Cain mentioned in the genealogies of Adam in the Old or the New Testament. Not one time is Adam called the father of Cain. This is why Adam pronounced his wife "the mother of all living": never is it suggested that he is the father of all living (Genesis 3:20). Had Cain been the first-born son of Adam, he would have had the nature of Adam who was the son of God, and a special place in God's record.

As Eve bore her firstborn, she exclaimed, "I have gotten a man from the Lord" (Genesis 4:1). This must be understood correctly. Eve was NOT declaring Adam was the father of Cain: under Satan's delusion she actually thought Cain was Christ, "the beginning of the creation of God." No other act with Adam is recorded between the births of Cain and Abel. We are simply told, ". . . And she again bore his brother, Abel. And Adam knew his wife again; and she bore a son, and called his name Seth . . ." (Genesis 4:25). Since THREE sons were born from TWO acts by Adam, you know POSITIVELY that ONE of those three was NOT the son of Adam.

The apostle John also knew what happened in the garden of Eden. He wrote, ". . . not as Cain, who was of that wicked one" (I John 3:12). In this statement Adam could never have been meant. Adam was not the evil one, neither the wicked one, whose son Cain was, according to the written Word of God. The same apostle wrote of the believers, ". . . because you have overcome the wicked one" (I John 2:13, 14). Again Satan is meant in this place as in many other places in the Scripture with this description. In Revelation 20:2, he is called "the dragon, that old serpent, who is the Devil and Satan." In the Gospels Jesus calls the opponent of God "the wicked one." God is altogether good; Satan is just the opposite. In the Lord's prayer we petition, "Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one" (Matthew 6:13). We now know "the evil one" is the vicarious father of Cain and origin of all ungodly things.

Cain, the first killer and murderer, was full of envy and jealousy; and Satan was a murderer from the beginning — not in heaven, but on earth (John 8:44). Now it behooves us to consider what prompted such envy and jealousy as would cause Cain to murder Abel. It arose from their worship of God. Cain was rejected with his revelation, because he was carnal. Perhaps he thought it was an apple that caused the Fall, and knowing God requires life for life, picked the choicest of his crop, knowing the 'life' would go out of it. But by revelation from God the Bible says Abel knew animal had caused the Fall, and so animal life must be offered.

When the elder saw his 'works' rejected and Abel's sacrifice for which he had not labored, accepted of God, it seemed so unreasonable. And when God told him he would be accepted if by faith he offered the same sacrifice as His vindicated prophet, he felt humiliated. Concealing his pride, Cain asked Abel to expound the faith. Abel was reluctant to explain, fearing for his life, but when Cain prevailed he expounded the 'original sin.' Cain recognized he was not Adam's son, that he had never possessed the birthright, and was nowhere in the genealogy of God, but that if he destroyed Abel, he reasoned there was the possibility of fabricating primogeniture.

Hence, when God exposed Cain's evil and he saw there was no way he could claim Adam's birthright, which is ultimately the restoration to eternal Life in a restored world, he exclaimed, ". . . from Your face I shall be hid; and I will be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that finds me shall slay me" (because intermarriage with his line always procreates the unredeemable serpent seed and further pollutes the human race). So to prevent man from taking vengeance on Cain and his kindred, God placed a mark upon him. That mark is worldly wisdom: reasoning against the faith. According to anthropologists and Brother Branham, the serpent seed were responsible for all inventions and the discovery of all technological principles.

It is absolutely impossible for Cain to have come forth from Adam who was created in the image of the holy God from Whom no evil can come. Satan misused the serpent to enter into the human race in this cunning way, and throw it into destruction and death. Thus it was necessary for God to come in human flesh without human male instrumentality to redeem us back from the power of Satan. When all the redeemed receive their full inheritance, we will be placed back into our original ordained position under God to rule over all the earth.

Enoch was the seventh from Adam: Cain was not counted in the genealogy (Jude 14). Abel was killed with no offspring, therefore the record of the genealogy goes through Seth. In this respect, the Word of God is also perfect and enlightening — Adam, Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared, Enoch — Cain is not Adam's seed and is not mentioned (Genesis 5:6-18; Luke 3:38).

The seed of the serpent was just as real as the seed of the woman. If the serpent did not have a seed, then Christ too was a myth. The seed of the serpent was Cain, the promised seed of the woman was Christ. Paul referred to the promised seed, ". . . and to your seed, which is Christ" (Galatians 3:16-19). He is the seed for whom the promise was given. In the Old Testament, we read, "When You shall make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed" (Isaiah 53:10). God's law states that every seed must reproduce after its own kind (Genesis 1:11). So we should recognize not only did the serpent seed produce a physical race of people not on the Book of Life, but it also produces spiritual death in Adam's race, causing names to be removed from the Book of Life.

God hates hybreeding — His Word is Spirit, and it is Life, but when mixed with human reasoning it is no longer His Word and becomes death (John 6:63; Revelation 22:18-19). In Luke 8:11 we read, "The seed is the Word of God." Before Eve could receive the physical seed of the serpent, she first had to receive the perverted word or suggestion of Satan into her mind — spiritual serpent seed — and reason against the clear instruction of God's seed Word.

In Matthew 13:36-43 the Lord spoke clearly about these diverse spiritual seeds, "He that sows the good seed is the Son of man; the field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom, but the tares are the children of the wicked one." Our lives manifest our faith or understanding. A life lived by the Word is the Word expressed — Christ in you, the hope of glory. A life lived by God's Word hybrid into creeds is reasoning against the faith; it is the mark of Cain and of the beast, and is death. Those influenced by the wicked one hardened their hearts, to which Jesus said, "You are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there no truth in him." He did not dispute their claim to be Abraham's seed, nor did he concede that they were also the seed of Isaac and Jacob and therefore Israelites. As we have noted, the majority of Judeans (or Jews) in His day were Edomites. Esau, their progenitor was Abraham's seed but he married into Cain's race and marred his inheritance. Knowing this the Pharisees protested, "We were not born of fornication; we have one father, even God." Jesus said, "If you were Abraham's children you would do the works of Abraham . . . and if God were your father, you would love Me." Since they were deceived on the Word and abode not in the Truth, even those who were in Adam's line physically, were serpent seed SPIRITUALLY, and blotted from the record of life (John 8:37-47; Psalm 69:21-28; Jeremiah 9:24-25).

We must remember that God put "enmity" between the two seeds, "And I will put enmity between . . . your seed and her seed" (Genesis 3:15). With the aid of the serpent, Satan came into the human race to destroy God's order. And the enmity is still there.

Satan perverted God's holy instruction to "multiply and fill the earth," deceiving Eve and coming into human flesh and blood to produce death instead of life. "Man that's born of woman is of few days, and full of trouble" (Job 14:1). God required a perfect substitute, so Jesus was born of a virgin without sex, by faith in the spoken Word Seed of God to pay sin's penalty. Hence our second birth is not by woman but by the Man Christ Jesus without sin and without sex, by the spoken seed Word of God.

After Pentecost, Satan returned to pervert the spoken Word seed of God by mixing or hybridizing it with reasoning into creeds and traditions. So long as the seven-sealed Book was closed and the mystery sealed to the time of the end, Christ was in the Office of Mediator, interceding in behalf of the ignorance of God's elect concerning the faith (Daniel 12:4,9; Revelation 10:4,7). Once the last saint predestinated to the Laodicean Church Age had been baptized into the Body, Christ answered the call of the elders, fulfilling Revelation 4, 5, and 10:1-7.

Advancing from the sacrifice altar as the bleeding bloody Lamb and taking the Book of Life, which is the title deed to all He has redeemed, He became Lion, Judge, and King of Kings. Revelation 10:1-6 signifies Christ descending to earth in WORD Form with the Book that was sealed open in His hands to reveal Himself through the ministry of the 'angel' to the Laodicean Church Age before the seventh Trumpet Angel sounds the end of the Gentile Dispensation (I Thessalonians 4:16; I Corinthians 15:52).

You see the Church Age saints cannot be made perfect without us. As the Holy Spirit was waved before God in the first ripe Sheaf of the Lord Jesus Christ, and accepted in that God resurrected Him for the justification of the whole harvest (Romans 4:25), that same Spirit in the Fullness of the Word is to be waved again in the end-time Bride whose acceptance will signal the resurrection of the sleeping saints and build faith for translation grace. The "church" will know nothing of this: God having called out the righteous, both wise and foolish virgin, their end will be a lake of Fire (Leviticus 23:16-21; Matthew 3:12; I Thessalonians 5:1-10; Revelation 19:20; 20:10).

Speaking through His prophets, God promised He would "RESTORE the faith once delivered to the apostolic saints" (Joel 2:25; Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Acts 3:19-21). This is the ministry of the seventh Church Age Messenger, the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6, whose Message is the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16, which is the "midnight cry" heard and heeded by the wise and foolish virgin of Matthew 25:6 and confirmed by the heavenly Voice of Revelation 18:4. This Message is Christ the fullness of the Word "spoken by the mouth of all God's holy prophets since the world began" —"that which is perfect" or complete (Acts 3:21; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7). It separates Christ's tiny Flock from the hordes of the great whore of Rome and her Protestant harlot daughters, bringing her into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Genesis 49:10; Amos 3:3; Matthew 13:41; Ephesians 1:10; Romans 8:19; II Thessalonians 2:1).

The 'enmity' God placed between the seed of the righteous first and last Adams, and the unrighteous physical seed of Cain and the bastard-born spiritual children of the second Eve, whom Jesus calls "the mother of harlots and abominations on the earth," is extant. Christ's little Flock is marching toward heaven in the rapture, while Satan's mighty world-wide church is marching to Armageddon (Revelation 16:13-16; 17:14).

Revelation 1-3 prophesies the battle that commenced on the day of Pentecost between Christ in His people, and antichrist in his people. These trees that stood in the midst of the Garden have grown together, like Judas and Jesus, as brothers within the framework of the Christian church, so close as would almost deceive the very elect if it were possible. However this is the harvest time, each congregation is bearing the life of the seed that was planted and cannot hide its fruit. Satan's apostate big church is uniting with the apostate smaller churches in order to convert or kill Christ's little Flock. But after a brief and powerful demonstration of the Spirit — NOT a public display as it was in Pentecost — our little hunted and persecuted group will go to be with Jesus.

As Satan incarnate the beast in the garden of Eden and led the first Eve to death, when he is cast out of the heavenlies he will evict his demons and incarnate the man of sin, thereafter called the beast, who will lead his followers to perdition. Christ's purpose is to be fulfilled in His Bride. He is that Corn of Wheat that fell to the ground at Calvary in order to reproduce Himself in the many-membered spoken Word seed Bride.

When Jesus was on earth, Satan showed Him all the kingdoms and their glory in this end-time and said, "I will give You all these things if You will fall down and worship me" (Matthew 4:9). Our Redeemer knew that once He overcame, and shed His blood for the redemption of those ordained for eternal Life, the inheritance forfeited by the first Adam would be His. Already the psalmist had said, "Arise, O God, judge the earth; for You shall inherit all nations" (Psalm 82:8; Revelation 11:15).

Of Christ's elect or Spiritual Seed, the apostle Paul wrote, "And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ — if so be that we suffer with Him, we may be also glorified together" (Romans 8:17). This will be fulfilled sooner than most (so-called) Christians dare imagine. We are privileged to live in the time when all the mysteries contained in the Holy Scriptures have been revealed, including the original sin in the garden of Eden. bb930112.htm

God is not the Author of Confusion

Bible Believers' Newsletter #514
"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.

Brother Branham said that when the Lord revealed a vision of some future happening and he recognized its manifestation in real time that he had to wait until the setting was precisely as portrayed in the vision before beginning to act out his part. And so it is with the Bible, the inspired record of countless visions. This week we will consider Jerusalem in the immediate future as pictured in Zechariah 12 and 14, and consider how the actions of George II, Shimon Peres, the Palestinians, the Vatican, Israel's neighbours, Russia and the USA are working together to bring the vision into real time (Romans 8:28).

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


US accused of using 'Kangaroo Court' to try Men accused of Role in 9/11
February 12, 2008 – The United States military announced yesterday that it was bringing death penalty charges against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and five other men suspected of orchestrating the September 11 attacks . . . The decision to use Mohammed and the others as guinea-pigs in a constitutionally dubious legal proceeding is likely to trigger a firestorm of anti-American sentiment in the Islamic world and spark fractious domestic debate in an already highly charged presidential election year.

Concerns were raised last night of political interference by the White House in the military's decision to go to trial in the middle of an election campaign in which the Republican frontrunner, John McCain, has made the fight against al-Qa'ida central to his election bid. . . Full story:

Comment: McCain's commission is to provoke the Islamic world to retaliate against aggression from the puppet states of the City of London in order to neuter political Islam and political Zionism in a brief World War III, and advance the setting up of Lucifer's totalitarian one world government with a unified church and monetary system under the direction of the puppeteer. Ultimately national identity and national pride, must be destroyed before the concept of one world government can succeed, and all religion, in particular Christianity, must be destroyed and replaced by the pure Luciferian doctrine.


Williams, Sharia and a mea culpa . . . of Sorts
February 13, 2008 – It is likely that people will look back at the last few days in Britain as a landmark in its debate about multiculturalism. Challenged to accept the supposed inevitability of Islamic law (or sharia), the public voice here has responded with a resounding "No".

The trigger came last Friday in a lecture delivered by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams. Williams called for the "constructive accommodation" of parts of sharia in Britain in the form of "plural jurisdiction". His idea was that Muslims should be free to choose whether they could bypass the English legal system in favour of Islamic courts to resolve disputes such as divorce.

Debates about multiculturalism, not least those about religion, Islam and the law, tend to divide opinion in liberal societies such as Britain, but not on this occasion. Rejection, even condemnation, of Williams's views has been close to unanimous among political leaders, commentators and community figures alike. . . Full story: Canberra Times

Comment: The Church of England promotes the anti-Christian oxymoron, "unity in diversity." The Archbishop should read his Bible:

The objective of "multiculturalism," which is Orwellian doublespeak for miscegenation—accursed by the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob—is to divide and conquer Adam's race by imposing genocide in the bed, destroying racial and national integrity as Esau marred his inheritance (Genesis 9:25; 10:15-19; 26:34-35).

This charade is a masterstroke by the 'hidden hand' to heighten division between Islam and the colonies of 'the City' and highlights the apostasy of the once Christian world. Last year a pagan Hindu priest opened the United States Congress in prayer, and this week a "pagan pantomime" opened Australia's Parliament with a "half-naked tribal romp." Historically, whenever a people were defeated the religion of the victor has been imposed on the conquered. This is about to repeat (Revelation 13:15-18).


Don't let Facts spoil the Day
February 9, 2008 – Bringing Them Home claimed "not one indigenous family has escaped the effects of forcible removal". Hence it recommended that virtually every person in Australia who claimed to be an Aborigine was entitled to a substantial cash handout. . . (All government forms ask, "Are you an Aborigine or Torres Strait Islander"? Is this to qualify for a Divide and Conquer Lottery in which every name wins $500,000? - Ed). The problem with the Bringing Them Home report is not its logic, but its facts. As regards NSW, the story of the Stolen Generations was largely formed in 1981 by the historian Peter Read. . . Bringing Them Home did no original research of its own in NSW. Instead, it relied upon Read's writings. . . Full story: (from The Fabrication of Aboriginal History, Volume One, by Professor Keith Windschuttle).

Comment: In last week's Newsletter entitled, "Divide and Conquer," we wrote:

In Federal Parliament on Wednesday Australia's Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, with in-principle support from the Opposition, will say "sorry" to the "stolen generation" of Aborigines. Patterned after the lucrative holocaust reparations schemes, this was orchestrated by Jewish lawyer Ed. Fagan, who is proceeded only by his reputation. Animal emotion rather than thoughtful common sense has guided the decisions of self-serving politicians, eager to commit to spending ever more borrowings from the Banksters while destroying the nation and the Aborigine people.

As I write I am listening to the speeches in Parliament.

So-called Christians have been rendered powerless by their disobedience to Acts 17:11; Romans 3:3; Galatians 1:8-9; II Timothy 2:15; I Thessalonians 5:21; Revelation 22:18-19, etc., and as Paul said, "If any man will be ignorant, let him be ignorant." Australians are thus ignorant. We are a subject nation as the "mother country," Britain, has been a subject nation since 1688. . . and we know it not.

Today the nation has further humbled itself at the altar of our unnamed oppressors by the thoughtless words of groveling Prime Minister Rudd and Opposition leader Brendan Nelson, whose cowardly appeal to emotion is built firmly upon ignorance rather than fact. Australians do not read and are therefore not equipped to think. Today they have accepted the yoke of oppression with loud acclamation and assumed the mantle of permanent subjugation borne by Germany. Today the 'Hidden Hand' has divided and conquered this nation, which will be evermore paying 'hush money' to its Aborigine peoples who have been hoodwinked by their unnamed oppressors who will treat them mercilessly as they have the native peoples of all the former colonies since independence and release from Western law and oversight was imposed following World War II.

Rather than investigate, "think", understand and respond with brave, selfless honesty toward all Australians by declaring truth that would expose the scoundrels who have devised and imposed this hoax, the leaders of the three major political parties in Australia's Hegelian sham democracy have capitulated to an unnamed alien power the Lord God told Moses He has set "at enmity" with Adam's race (Genesis 3:15).

Job 38:2, "Who is this who darkens counsel by words without knowledge? Those behind this scheme to irretrievably divide and conquer Australia do not believe the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, for they would persuade Aborigine Australians that they are alternatively a 40,000 or 60,000-year-old race.

From his book, Still Not Sorry, Andrew Bold writes in the Herald Sun (February 8, 2008):

In Victoria, for instance, the state Stolen Generations Taskforce concluded there had been "no formal policy for removing children." Ever.

In the Northern Territory, the Federal Court found no sign of "any policy of removal of part-Aboriginal children such as that alleged."

In Tasmania, the Stolen Generations Alliance admitted "there were no removal policies as such."

In South Australia, the Supreme Court last year found no government policy to steal Aboriginal children there, either. Rather, stealing black children had been "without legal authority, beyond power and contrary to authoritative legal advice."

Day Trip to Auschwitz for Pupils from every School
February 4, 2008 – Two sixth-formers from every school in England are to visit Auschwitz to learn about the Holocaust, under a government-funded initiative to help to ensure that the lessons of the Nazi genocide live on with a new generation.

Jim Knight, the Schools Minister, wants the teenagers who take part to educate their classmates and communities in turn by giving them their own accounts of the death camp in Poland where more than one million Jews, Roma, Sinti, gay, disabled and black people were put to death.

The Government will fund the greater majority of the cost of each student's trip. While their school must find £100, the Education Department will find the remaining £200 per trip over the next three years. . . The visits will be preceded by a seminar in the UK, where students, aged 16 to 18, will hear testimony from a survivor of the camp. Following their return, they will attend a second seminar to reflect on the experience. . . the scheme, which has been piloted since 2006, will now be on a permanent footing receiving £1.5 million of government funding a year until 2011, with a promise of further funding in the future. . . Full story:

Comment: This is freedom to think and regurgitate Big Brother's brain washing. What discipline will be meted to inquiring students whose "reflection on the experience" does not agree with the holocaust catechism, or causes them to think for themselves and discover historic truth? Thedor Herzl, Max Nordau, Ben Hecht, many other Jewish luminaries, Encyclopaedia Britannica (1902) or Protocol No, 12, if read, would expose the folly of Britain's Zionist invertebrate poodle government.


UN Calls Emergency Meeting on UFO's as Russia prepares for Total War
February 14, 2008 – Interesting reports are emerging from the West today that state the United Nations on February 12 held an emergency meeting among Member Nations growing ever more concerned over the rapidly rising reports of UFO's being sighted around the World. . . as President Putin has served notice to the West that the Russian Nation will begin targeting NATO allied Nations siding with the United States in its effort to encircle the Russias with its nuclear missiles.

Putin is said to be further enraged over the West's planned supporting of the breakaway Serbian province of Kosovo as an independent Nation, and which the Russian Leader has termed "immoral and illegal", and which Russia has stated they will not recognize. . . Full story:

Comment: Joel 2:30-31 and Acts 2:19-20 prophesied such sights prior to the earthquakes, causing hearts to fail with foreboding of what is coming upon the world. Speaking of "flying saucers," Brother Branham said, "Russia. . . never display their best; we don't either." He called them "investigating judgment angels" - not supernatural or extra terrestrial beings but signs of impending judgment.

Rule by Fear or Rule by Law?
February 4, 2008 – Since 9/11, and seemingly without the notice of most Americans, the federal government has assumed the authority to institute martial law, arrest a wide swath of dissidents (citizen and noncitizen alike), and detain people without legal or constitutional recourse in the event of "an emergency influx of immigrants in the US, or to support the rapid development of new programs."

Beginning in 1999, the government has entered into a series of single- bid contracts with Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR) to build detention camps at undisclosed locations within the United States. The government has also contracted with several companies to build thousands of railcars, some reportedly equipped with shackles, ostensibly to transport detainees.

According to diplomat and author Peter Dale Scott, the KBR contract is part of a Homeland Security plan titled ENDGAME, which sets as its goal the removal of "all removable aliens" and "potential terrorists". . .

Sect. 1042 of the 2007 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), "Use of the Armed Forces in Major Public Emergencies," gives the executive the power to invoke martial law. For the first time in more than a century, the president is now authorized to use the military in response to "a natural disaster, a disease outbreak, a terrorist attack or any other condition in which the President determines that domestic violence has occurred to the extent that state officials cannot maintain public order."

The Military Commissions Act of 2006, rammed through Congress just before the 2006 midterm elections, allows for the indefinite imprisonment of anyone who donates money to a charity that turns up on a list of "terrorist" organizations, or who speaks out against the government's policies. The law calls for secret trials for citizens and noncitizens alike.

Also in 2007, the White House quietly issued National Security Presidential Directive 51 (NSPD-51), to ensure "continuity of government" in the event of what the document vaguely calls a "catastrophic emergency." Should the president determine that such an emergency has occurred, he and he alone is empowered to do whatever he deems necessary to ensure "continuity of government." This could include everything from canceling elections to suspending the Constitution to launching a nuclear attack. Congress has yet to hold a single hearing on NSPD-51.

US Rep. Jane Harman, D-Venice (Los Angeles County) has come up with a new way to expand the domestic "war on terror." Her Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 (HR1955). . . A clue as to where Harman's commission might be aiming is the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, a law that labels those who "engage in sit-ins, civil disobedience, trespass, or any other crime in the name of animal rights" as terrorists. Other groups in the crosshairs could be anti-abortion protesters, anti-tax agitators, immigration activists, environmentalists, peace demonstrators, Second Amendment rights supporters ... the list goes on and on. According to author Naomi Wolf, the National Counterterrorism Center holds the names of roughly 775,000 "terror suspects" with the number increasing by 20,000 per month. Full story:

Comment: Laws enacted by these democratically preselected Congressional thugs give new meaning the old hymn, "One of them, one of them; I'm so glad that I can say I'm one of them!" As quoted in Newsletter #513, Brother Branham warned of martial law in 1963.


Depression Risk might force US to buy Assets
New York February 12, 2008 – Fear that a hobbled banking sector may set off another Great Depression could force the US government and Federal Reserve to take the unprecedented step of buying a broad range of assets, including stocks, according to one of the most bearish market analysts.

That extreme scenario, which would aim to stave off deflation and stabilize the economy, is evolving as the base case for Bernard Connolly, global strategist at Banque AIG in London. . . Full story:

Early Reports suggest that Bush defied the Supreme Court
February 14, 2008 – At 03:26am on 14th February, the Editor received the following message from the source: "It has been a horrendous day. My intelligence & official sources inform me that the meeting referenced previously was a meeting of the US Supreme Court and other high officials, and, last night, they voted against Bush Jr. and ordered him to pay [the Wanta trillions - Ed]. Of course, that didn't happen and I'm now told that [a party deleted by the Editor] are moving to force his hand." We are also advised that "several power groups in the United States are taking very serious action. . ."

• The Group of Eight (which means effectively nine, as previously explained) agreed (minus the United States) to impose sanctions on the United States if the Lee Wanta Settlement and the other payments are not released immediately. The date on which the release was to have taken place was last Saturday 9th February.

• On that date, Russian military aircraft buzzed the Nimitz as widely publicised. Russia is a member of the Group of Eight and is livid that it has been repeatedly lied to and cravenly double-crossed by the White House.

• The same applies to all the other G-8 countries, including the United Kingdom.

• For unexplained reasons (or rather, the piece of the puzzle may be missing) the deadline for compliance was set at noon EST on Monday 11th February. When that deadline came and went, the four tankers sitting half a day out from Saudi Arabia were ordered not to proceed on to the United States, but to return to their Saudi port. . .

Venezuela Halts Oil Sales to Exxon Mobil
Caracas, Venezuela, February 12, 2008 – Venezuela's state oil company said Tuesday that it has stopped selling crude to Exxon Mobil Corp. in response to the US oil company's drive to use the courts to seize billions of dollars in Venezuelan assets. . . Venezuela is the United States' fourth largest oil supplier.

A British court issued an injunction last month temporarily freezing up to $12 billion of (Petroleos de Venezuela SA) PDVSA's assets. Exxon Mobil also has secured an "order of attachment" from US District Court in Manhattan on about $300 million in cash held by PDVSA. A hearing to confirm the order is scheduled for Wednesday. . .

"We can state with a 97% certainty that we have on our hands chemical trails (chemtrails) comprised by fine dust containing polymers and metals, used to disrupt radar signals". . . Full story:


God is not the Author of Confusion

In each of the seven Church Ages God's Message promised revelation and an assurance of blessing to the Spiritual Church, and exposed the evils of the nominal church, calling its members to repentance. Paul distinguished the two in I Corinthians 14:33, "God is not the god of confusion, but of peace, as in all Churches of the saints." Not in all the churches, but "in all Churches of the saints."

A reader writes, "I went to Oxford, Mississippi in 1956 as pastor of North Oxford Baptist Church. Oxford is the home of Ole Miss, the University of Mississippi. I learned a vital lesson very quickly. When you go to speak to a group of people on any given subject, you had better know how that group defines their terminology, or you will be saying one thing, but they will be hearing something entirely different. Now that is confusion — confusion within the same language."

"That is what happened within the language of Babel and led to the scattering of the people, ending their building program. What happened at Babel is representative of what happens within the language of any nation that leaves the Lord God out of its life. This is happening in the good ole US of A. Confusion is one of the primary means the Lord uses when He starts judging a nation as was evident with Israel throughout the Old Testament".

"Today confusion reigns worldwide in every facet of life. There is moral confusion, religious confusion, political confusion, economic confusion, social confusion, racial confusion, spiritual confusion, theological confusion, ethical confusion, sexual confusion, eschatological confusion, and educational confusion, with intent to divide and conquer. Confusion is rife within denominational circles over interpretations of the Bible because people have not bothered to "receive the Word with all readiness of mind, then search the Scriptures whether those things were so," and because they do not understand that God interprets His Word by bringing it to pass, or by sending a prophet with warning and a way of escape before judgment.

As God is not the author of confusion, it is evident that men have departed from His Word, which is His eternal thoughts expressed. As He is merciful, God sent and vindicated the prophet William Branham, whose ministry "turned the heart of His children back to the faith of their apostolic fathers and finished the mystery of God before He smites earth with a curse" (Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:7). Sadly, people are unwilling to receive correction although to refuse His Word is to reject the Holy Spirit, thus the world now is "held in store for burning, and reserved for judgment and the destruction of godless men" (II Peter 3:7).

"Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through faith in our risen sacrifice" (John 14:6). This Truth separates the elect from nominal Christians and is the Absolute that isolates us from all religion.

Jesus has given His end-time Bride the assurance that we will enter the Millennium without death (I Corinthians 15:51-52). "To he who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me in My throne, as I also conquered and am seated with My Father in His throne" (Revelation 3:21). Heaven is God's throne; earth is Jesus' throne and inheritance as Son of David (Isaiah 66:1). When Jesus was glorified, He was granted all authority in heaven and earth until such time as death is abolished in the lake of Fire (I Corinthians 15:23-28; Hebrews 2:14-15; I John 3:8, 14): that is, until after the White Throne Judgment, the regeneration of heavens and earth and the dawn of the eighth day (Matthew 22:44; Revelation 21:1-3).

Although the Body of Christ comprises many members, it is not complete until the last saint predestinated to this end-time Bride is baptized into the Family. Not until then can the first resurrection and our full adoption or glorification of the Body commence. "Adoption" is the coming of age of a son announced in a public ceremony in which his accountability and maturity are recognized and his word acknowledged as equal in authority as the word of his father. Until then his authority is no greater than that of a servant.

The natural types the Spiritual. As the appearance of the Shekinah (or Pillar of Cloud or Fire) at their dedication signified God had taken residence in the Tabernacle in the wilderness and in King Solomon's Temple, its later manifestation signified His residence in the Spoken Word Temple made without hands, Jesus Christ and His Bride, and will shine over us as the New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:22-27). After His baptism in the Jordan, Jesus was publicly adopted, anointed Messiah and dedicated as the Temple of the living God when He was overshadowed by the Shekinah in the Form of a dove and a Voice from heaven announced, "This is My beloved Son in whom I am pleased to dwell in" (Matthew 3:13-17). This typed the birth and dedication of His mystic Body or elect Church as the living "temple of the Holy Spirit" on the Day of Pentecost when what looked like tongues of fire settled upon each of the initial saints" (I Corinthians 6:19; Acts 2:1-3).

Because all of the New Testament saints comprise one Body, you were accounted in that Body when it was inaugurated in the Upper Room. We are waiting for the last member to recognize their part of the Word and take their place in the Body, which will be their new birth or adoption as a Son or Daughter of God, yet a spirit babe. The three stages in adoption are new birth, maturity through proven experience in the faith, and the body change or glorification.

Jesus was again overshadowed by the Shekinah on Mount Transfiguration, and a Voice said, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am pleased to dwell in: listen to Him" (Matthew 17:5). This further stage of Christ's adoption is equivalent to your becoming an elder in the faith, a mentor by example and by word (Hebrews 5:14).

Jesus' glorification was His full adoption. Prior to His death and resurrection in glorified flesh His authority was limited to what He heard from the Father or what was revealed to Him by vision (John 5:19; 8:26), but after He had cleansed the heavenly sanctuary of the sins of the Old Testament saints He was granted equal authority with the Father (Matthew 28:18). Now because we are all members of one Body, as soon as the sleeping saints begin to receive their full adoption in the first resurrection, we who are alive and remain being "potentially" glorified will have all power on earth like Adam before the Fall, and the 'third pull' will operate by our faith to meet our needs in the manifestation of the Sons of God.

What blessed assurance to those who know who they are. There will be no confusion in the Bride, the 'third pull' will be the end of all doubt, and Satan being cast down to earth, the "latter rain" of the Holy Spirit will fall upon all flesh—"the just and the unjust"—as it did under the "former rain." The latter rain being the harvest rain, every one will manifest the nature of the seed they have sown in their soul, and there will be no disguising their true character. Revelation 22:11-12, "Let the unjust be unjust still: let the filthy still be filthy: and the righteous still do right: and let the saint still be holy".

This will be a time of unprecedented global catastrophe. Earthquakes of a magnitude greater than any since man was created will rend and shake the earth, darkening the sun and sending tidal waves around the globe (Revelation 16:18; Luke 21:25); volcanic eruptions will cause the moon to appear blood red (Revelation 6:12), and the destruction of the Dome of the Rock will precipitate the "hot" stage of World War III, causing men's hearts to fail for fear of nuclear annihilation (Luke 21:26).

This will be the commencement of the Tribulation, the resurrection of the sleeping saints and the manifestation of the Sons of God. The denominations will come together under Rome and oppose Christ's Bride. This will be the time of the "squeeze", when what we say God will do—not for a public display as it was in Pentecost—but to supply our needs; to vindicate that we are the Sons of God and to imbue us with faith for translation grace so that after a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit our little hunted and persecuted group will go to be with Jesus.

Hear His Words of assurance: "Behold, I am coming without delay, bringing My recompense with Me, to repay every one for what he has done. I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end" (Revelation 22:13). These Divine titles, also assumed by our Lord Jesus in Revelation 1:8, 17 and 21:6, confirm He is the supreme Deity: Christ is the mystery of God revealed. Jesus of the New Testament is Jehovah of the Old Testament; He is the Lord God Almighty manifest in virgin-born flesh. The One before whom and after whom there is no God, and no Trinity of gods.

In less than 50-days after earthquakes sink Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300-400 mile segment of earth beneath the Pacific, and split the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, Christ's end-time Bride will change in the atoms and unite with the resurrected saints to meet the Lord in the Air.

A throne is a seat having a footstool. "Jesus Messiah must reign from God's throne until He has put all enemies under His feet" or footstool at the final judgment on earth. This heralds the end of time that will take the saints into the eighth day, which will be eternity in a renewed heaven and renewed earth (I Corinthians 15:24-25). God has dominion over all things from His seat or throne in heaven. But we should not imagine He requires furniture, for God is a Spirit and without form. Heaven consists of the Word, which is His eternal thinking or Logos: Jerusalem that is above, the womb or mother of all His elect. Jesus' dominion or throne will be a renewed earth with the saints of all ages. This will be the "material restoration of all things forfeited by the first Adam and his descendants which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began" (Acts 3:21). Together we are God manifest in the material form of His glorified Family. The "saved" will worship God throughout eternity in the form of glorified, vindicated Word: the last Adam and His seed (Isaiah 53:10).

Jesus has promised the overcomer he will sit with Him in His seat or throne throughout the Millennium (Revelation 3:21). In that time "we will build houses, and inhabit them, plant vineyards, and eat their fruit. We shall not build, and another inhabit, or plant and another eat: for as are the days of a tree are My people, and My elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the Blessed of the Lord, and their offspring (or children in the Gospel) with them" (Isaiah 65:21-23). However, in the new earth we will not build for in eternity everything is eternal and eternally prepared for us.

Following the Fall, Satan usurped dominion over the kingdom of this earth, which God created for Michael, who is Christ; Satan established his earthly headquarters in Babylon, where he was worshipped in the stead of God. When the Medes and Persians conquered Babylon, Attalus her priest-king fled and reestablished the seat of idolatry in Pergamum where it prospered outside the Roman Empire. Attalus III died without heir in 133BC, willing his kingdom to Rome, and in 63BC Julius Caesar became Pontiff Maximus of the Babylonish religion. The title passed on to succeeding emperors until AD375 when Gratian, who determined to be an orthodox Christian emperor, refused it, and the pope took the headship the emperor rejected. Today there is still a pontiff in the world and he is truly Pontiff Maximus. He wears a triple crown and resides in Rome.

In Revelation 17 God no longer refers to Pergamos as Satan's seat, nor does He say that is where Satan dwells. His throne room is no longer in Iraq or in Pergamos, it is in Mystery Babylon, a city on seven hills whose head is antichrist for he has usurped the position of Christ who alone can forgive sins. When Satan is cast out, he will incarnate the pope, and Rome will rule the world as foretold in Daniel and Revelation.

Satan's objective is to rule from Jerusalem, which is now the spiritual equivalent of Sodom and Egypt (Revelation 11:8). Isaiah 14:12-14, "How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, who laid the nations low! For you said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will preside on the Mount of the Assembly, in the far north: I will rise above the heights of the clouds; I will rival the Most High." (II Thessalonians 2:4).

Hoping to recover his legacy of failure, one of his children, George II, has set a timetable for peace between Israelis and Palestinians, whose land these self-styled Jews stole in the providence of God so that in Daniel's Seventieth Week genuine blood Israelites can return to the Promised Land for redemption. Hamas, which was for years secretly funded by Israel's secret services hoping to encourage Muslim fanaticism that would divide and conquer the Palestinians, was not invited to the Annapolis Peace Conference, although it was elected in far more honest elections than the American president.

On the one hand, his Middle East visit seems to have given Israel fresh impetus to continue its expansion into Palestine, and on the other, increased the pressure on Iran as Israeli President Shimon Peres all but confirmed. His timetable calls for peace by the end of this year, indicating God's timetable for Los Angeles may be April 2009.

Zechariah 12:1-3, "The burden of the Word of the Lord concerning Israel. THUS SAITH THE LORD, (the Sustainer as well as the Creator) who continually stretches forth the heavens, and founded the earth, and formed the spirit of man within him (by means of which He can energise his thoughts and actions to accomplish His purposes). Behold, I will make Jerusalem and Judah a bowl of trembling to all adjoining nations, in the siege against Jerusalem. On that day I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all peoples; all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against her."

It appears the confederacy against the Jews and the Israelites, with whom they are conflated by the ignorant, will be almost universal and that George II's timetable for peace is actually setting up the players in this end game. Brother Branham said, Jews in the United States at this time "won't escape".

The phrase, "burden themselves with it," refers to the custom for youths in Palestine to test their strength by lifting up a massive stone. In Matthew 21:44 Messiah was this rock of offense, on whose revelation the Jews "fell, and were broken"; but that Rock shall fall on Antichrist, who "burdens himself with it" by his assault on the restored state, and "grind him to powder."

There is only one true Israel. When the natural branches were broken off through apostasy, the Gentile branches were grafted in. Now that the Gentiles have succumbed to apostasy, they too will be pruned, and the natural branches grafted back (Romans 11:17-32). Zechariah 12:9-14 is Christ's parousia Coming to Israel after the end of our dispensation. Ezekiel 38 and 39, the ministry of the two Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11, and the first three and a half years of Daniel's Seventieth Week are condensed into this chapter.

Shortly after the earthquakes sink Los Angeles and split the Mount of Olives, destroying the Dome of the Rock, the Muslims will attack Israel with Russian support, and Russia will invade and occupy mainland United States. Brother Branham said:

"The Russians put up a sputnik that we can control nothing about it, five hundred miles off of the earth; and could put a half a dozen of them over the United States in the next thirty minutes, and call in and say, "Surrender, or be a bunch of ashes in a few minutes." They can do it. There isn't nothing that we can do to stop them. It's in their hands of bloodless, heartless, ungodly communists. That's what God uses to make sin come to light. Certainly is. If you'll read the Bible, Russia's got to do that according to Revelations. All right, you prophecy teachers might different from that, but just wait till it's over. Russia is put here for that very purpose. The Bible said so. . ."

"What's going to happen? There's a sputnik up there. And what would happen? The nation would surrender, of course; that's the only decent thing the government could do."

Then what happens? Wave after wave of ship loads of soldiers; wave after wave of airplanes would land in this nation. The women would be ravished in the streets. What would you do? It belongs to them. Kicked out of your home, they'll take it over.

What'll happen to you young girls, and you young men, and all of you at that time? Sin has to be paid for. No matter what nation it is, or who it is, it does it, individually, or a nation, it's going to be paid for. And a bunch of brutal, ungodly, whisker-jawed, communistic soldiers would grab your wives and ravish them, your young girls. And you'd stand and like it; there's nothing you can do about it.

What causes that? Because you have listened to such stuff as these television programs on rock-and-roll and sin, and some cold formal preacher not able to interpret the supernatural. The handwriting is on the wall. That's right. And we are weighed in the balance and found wanting.

When could that take place? Before daylight in the morning. Who's going to stop it? Try it. The Bible says it'll happen. But let me tell you, that'll never touch the Church of the living God, we'll be gone by that time" (Handwriting on the Wall, p. 10:77, 84-90).

Don't blame Russia. It is the USA that has sinned. Russia and the USA are each controlled by the thugs that invaded Russia from New York City in 1917. When the Bolsheviks were finally thrown out of Russia, Wall Street persuaded the US government to welcome them as persecuted Jewish immigrants. Rockefeller positioned the smartest of these scoundrels in the bureaucracy, but once they got their hands on the levers of power they became his competitors to usurp his dominion over the USA.

I believe God's destruction of the forces of Russia and her allies on the mountains of Israel will break the morale of her troops occupying the USA, making it possible for the Pope, who will have united a federation of world religions, to command the invaders to return to their own country (Ezekiel 38-39; Revelation 13:1-10). Having restored peace, the nations will implore the now incarnate pope to be the first president of Lucifer's totalitarian one world government. He will accept what Jesus refused and rule to the consummation (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17:11-18; Matthew 4:8-10).

Zechariah 14:1-2, "Behold, the day of the Lord comes, and Jerusalem's spoil shall be divided in her midst. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city".

Unlike Gog and Magog in Zechariah 12 and Ezekiel 38-39, who will perish on the mountains without gaining possession of the city, these seize and take plunder, and expel Jews from residency in East Jerusalem, which will become the capitol of a Palestinian state. However, Jews will be free to enter the city. In this further development Rome will establish the capital of her world government in Jerusalem as prophesied in Daniel 9:26 and 11:40-45. Israel's first Prime Minister, David ben Gurion, who knew the plans of the Illuminati said, "With the exception of the USSR as a federal Eurasian State, all other continents will become united in a world alliance, at whose disposal will be an international police force. All armies will be abolished and there will be no more wars. In Jerusalem, the United Nations (a truly United Nations) will build a shrine of the prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; this will be the seat of the supreme court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents, as prophesied by Isaiah" (Look Magazine, January 16, 1962).

Jerusalem will become an international city as set forth by the United Nations with the "holy" places under Vatican authority as negotiated by Shimon Peres and reported in previous Newsletters and East Jerusalem the capital of Palestine as agreed in the plans for partition.

As we watch the world falling apart and see the treachery of national leaders secretly working with the 'Hidden Hand' to merge all nations into Lucifer's totalitarian one world government, we recall the words Brother Branham sang, "Gentile days are numbered with horrors encumbered," and know there can be no restoration of common sense and Common Law, and no reformation of church or state, for Christ revealed the Seven Seals after the close of His mediation as Son of God. Now, "because He is in the office of Son of man, He has been given authority to execute judgment" (John 5:27). So we live in a time of desperation, bringing our lives under preeminence to the revealed Word and praying earnestly for that day of sweet release, knowing the assurance of the 'third pull' will not manifest until the "latter rain" causes the 'squeeze' and national force requires our worship complies with the World Council of Churches.

Despite George Orwell's newspeak and doublespeak employed by our shifty politicians and alien-controlled media, Christians are not confused within their own language because we filter our understanding from Genesis to Revelation to ensure we have the mind of Christ. New believers unfamiliar with certain of the terms we employ will feel at home as they acquaint themselves with the written Word of God's Holy Bible and the spoken Word of His Prophet. Paul admonished, "I appeal to you, brethren, by the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, that there be no dissensions or factions among you; but that you be perfectly united in the same mind and in the same judgment" (I Corinthians 1:10). The function of this end-time Message is to gather Christ's Bride together in "the unity of the faith" (Ephesians 4:13) for "the manifestation of the Sons of God" (Romans 8:19) and the translation (I Thessalonians 4:16).

If you have a righteous desire, you will become desperate, relegating peripheral things to the sidelines until that which is foremost is accomplished. Paul said, "Everything I once thought eminently worthwhile I have cast aside as loss so that I can put my hope and trust in Christ alone. I count everything as loss in comparison with the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For His sake I have incurred the loss of all things and count them worthless and detestable dung, that I may gain Christ" (Philippians 3:7-8). To avoid double minded confusion we must forego undue affection for anything that anchors us to this world. If you have worldly possessions, ensure you master them and that they are not master and anchor of your soul. nl514.htm
