Build on the Rock and not upon the Sands

Bible Believers' Newsletter #551
"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.

God smote Israel with partial blindness at the end of her dispensation but left the nation a further three and a half years in which to receive Jesus Messiah. That period called "the time of Jacob's trouble" is imminent (Jeremiah 30:7). However, the end of our dispensation will be terminal for everyone but the 144,000 elect Israelites, and clearly the non-elect Gentiles have been smitten blind, deaf and dumb so as to again lend themselves "useful idiots" to be raped and ruined by those God has set at enmity with Adam's race. As Jesus said, our Christ-rejecting people "are wretched, miserable, spiritually [and now also materially] bankrupt, blind to His Word [and to those we foolishly call our close allies who by way of deception make war against us]; naked of the Blood of Christ, and know it not" (Revelation 3:14-22; Genesis 3:15).

In this issue is we exhort Christ's Bride to recognize her authority under pre-eminence to the Word with the assurance that if we eliminate "the little foxes" from our lives they will not destroy the Vine of the Lord, which must live by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God.

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


Obama must Stand Up Now or Step Down
October 29, 2008 – In disposing of the lawsuit Berg v. Obama, which squarely presents the question of Obama's true citizenship, the presiding judge complained that Berg "would have us derail the democratic process by invalidating a candidate for whom millions of people voted and who underwent excessive vetting during what was one of the most hotly contested presidential primaries in living memory." This is exceptionally thin hogwash. . .

The underlying problem will not be obviated if Obama, his partisans in the Democratic Party, and his cheerleaders and cover-up artists in the big media simply stonewall the issue of his (non) citizenship and contrive for him to win the Presidential election. The cat is already out of the bag and running all over the Internet. If he continues to dodge the issue, Obama will be dogged with this question every day of his purported "Presidency." And inevitably the truth will out. For the issue is too simple, the evidence (or lack of it) too accessible. Either Obama can prove that he is "a natural born Citizen" who has not renounced his citizenship; or he cannot. And he will not be allowed to slip through with some doctored "birth certificate" generated long after the alleged fact. On a matter this important, Americans will demand that, before its authenticity is accepted, any supposed documentary evidence of that sort be subjected to reproducible forensic analyses conducted by reputable, independent investigators and laboratories above any suspicion of being influenced by or colluding with any public official, bureaucracy, political party, or other special-interest organization whatsoever.

Berg v. Obama may very well end up in the Supreme Court. Yet that ought to be unnecessary. For Obama's moral duty is to produce the evidence of his citizenship sua sponte et instanter. Otherwise, he will be personally responsible for all the consequences of his refusal to do so. . . Full story:

Comment: Brother Branham spoke of race riots, but he also said the Roman Catholic church would refinance the US dollar, ostensibly as a defence against Judaeo-Communism. Right now it appears Judaeo-Communism holds the upper hand in the upcoming US election. But regardless whether one votes for Obama or McCain, Zbigniew Brzezinski controls both men. However there are several other reputable presidential candidates in good standing.


The Killers are with the Patient
September 24, 2008 – The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.

Let's do what has to be done, America—or do you still want to blame Muslim terrorists and illegal immigrants for America's problems; or maybe you are still hoping that somehow maybe somehow Paulson's proposed trillion dollar government bailout of the rich and well-connected will somehow trickle down to you and save you and your family from being tossed out onto the streets when your house is foreclosed on by the banks he is going to save.

The majority will always willingly pay the price of fascism.

When this is all over—and someday it will be—it is my hope that we will have learned the lessons that we have now forgotten. That bankers, like vicious dogs, must always be kept on short leashes for the public safety and public good (neutering should also be a requirement); and, that gold and silver, not credit and debt, are the only foundation of sound money.

Chicken Little, Half Truths and the Loss of Freedom
October 25, 2008 – Research published this past year reveals that the ocean warming is likely due to volcanic activity, not global warming. In January 2008 one volcano was even found to be actively warming the underside of the glaciers overlaying it, causing them to melt from the bottom up and advance much faster than would otherwise be expected. Also not reported is the fact that some 3,000 scientific temperature measuring robots plying the oceans have found that earth's oceans are cooling, not warming, as the man-caused global warming theory demands. . .

Comment: President of Environmental Perspectives Incorporated and CEO of Sovereignty International, Dr. Coffman has over 30 years of university teaching, research and consulting experience in forestry and environmental sciences, is one more scientist who exposes man-made global warming for the NWO scam that it is.

Peak oil and the high price of oil is another scam. Watch oil prices rise after the US presidential election. New research has revealed that disease is to blame for a decline in frog populations, not climate change as was first thought ( ).


Europe's Secret Plan to boost GM Crop Production
October 26, 2008 – Gordon Brown and other European leaders are secretly preparing an unprecedented campaign to spread GM crops and foods in Britain and throughout the continent . . . News of the secret plans is bound to create a storm of protest at a time when popular concern about GM technology is increasing, even in countries that have so far accepted it.

Public opposition has prevented any modified crops from being grown in Britain. France, one of only three countries in Europe to have grown them in any amounts, has suspended their cultivation, and resistance to them is rising rapidly in the other two, Spain and Portugal. . . Despite all the hype, present GM varieties actually have lower yields than their conventional counterparts. The seeds are expensive to buy and grow, so wealthy developing-world farmers would tend to use them and drive poor ones out of business, increasing destitution. . . Full story:

Comment: God's Word is the original seed and it is Spirit and Life. He commanded everything to reproduce life after its own kind whose seed is in itself. When man hybreeds God's creation, which is His Word manifest, he transforms life into DEATH. And when we feed on hybrid produce we are introducing natural DEATH into our bodies as when we feed spiritually on creeds and dogmas hybrid with the Holy Bible we are introducing spiritual DEATH into our soul.


Build on the Rock and not upon the Sands

John 17:4-6, 9-10, "I have glorified You on the earth, I have completed the work you gave Me to do; now Father, glorify Me in Your own Presence with the glory which I had with You before the world existed. . . I have manifested Your Name to the persons whom You gave Me out of the world: they were Yours, and You gave them to Me; and they have kept Your Word. . . I pray for them: I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me [out of the world]; for they are Yours. And all mine are Yours, and Yours are mine; and I am glorified in them".

The natural things of this world like a man and woman who are joined together by God as one flesh in holy matrimony, are a shadow and type of the Spiritual: "This is a great mystery [wrote Paul]: but I speak concerning Christ and the Church" (Ephesians 5:22-33). And since "the woman is the glory of the man" (I Corinthians 11:7), Christ's Bride is His glory. Multitudes are blessed and will be granted into eternal Life, however it was for His elect, you and me, Jesus prayed, and our redemption was the work He completed when He cried "It is finished! and bowing His head, gave up the ghost." Christ is glorified when the Token of His Life is displayed in us. As Attributes of the Logos we too were the glory of the Father before the world existed, and the Token on display your life and mine is the evidence of His resurrection.

"He paid a debt He did not owe,
I owed a debt I could not pay,
I needed Someone to wash my sins away,
And now I sing a brand new song,
"Amazing grace," all day long,
Christ Jesus paid a debt that I could never pay".

Jesus was dead but is alive for evermore and has the keys of hell and of death. Those keys are the faith we receive when we recognize our day and this end-time Message, which is "the keys of the kingdom of heaven"—our adoption as children and joint heirs with the first begotten from the dead—"and whatsoever we bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever we unbind on earth shall be loosed in heaven" (Matthew 16:19). The key of death is our new birth that opens the kingdom of heaven and binds the power of Spiritual death, for "whoever is born of God does not commit sin; for His seed [the revealed Word] remains in him; and he cannot sin [or disbelieve the revealed Word of God] because he is born of God" (I John 3:9). The key of hell or the grave ensures we shall not experience death in the flesh but change in the atoms when the Church Age saints rise in bodies like Jesus' own glorified body.

If the Son has made me free, I am loosed from the power of death and hell. As anchors chain a ship to earth, inordinate affections: pride, ambition, money and possessions bind the man. Paul admonished: "Owe no man anything, but love one to another: for he who loves another has fulfilled the Law. Pay everyone their dues: gladly pay your taxes and import duties, pay obedience to those in authority over you, and give honour and reverence to whom it is due" (Romans 13:7-8; I Timothy 5:17).

Brother Branham told us to loose all chains except our anchor in Jesus and the tie that binds our heart in Christian love; to discharge all obligations on time and pay any lingering debts. Hereby we love our neighbour who relies upon timely payment to enable him to meet his commitments. This ensures us a clear conscience which grants inner peace and imparts strength through certainty: so before we partake the Lord's Supper we must tarry one for another to make sure things that should be bound are bound, and things that should be released are loosed; all consciences are clear: there is no condemnation to us who are in Christ Jesus and our one outstanding obligation to man is to love our neighbour as our self.

God regards our motive and our objective. Our objective is the purpose or aim we seek to accomplish, and our motive is what impels us to action: is it the love of God? or is it the pride of life? In Newsletter #550 we spoke on the obligation of Christians to tithe their increase of time and income to support His ministers in their work for the Kingdom. Since our objective is to be translated into union with all saints for the Wedding Supper in the Air, our motive must be to grow into the unity of the faith with the Token on display in our life. Not only do we need to be obedient in the legalistic sense, we need to place our Spiritual burdens on Jesus and simplify our lives in order to diminish the unnecessary burdens and responsibilities binding our body, spirit and soul to this world.

Moravian Bishop and educator Comenius (Jan Amos), known as the father of modern education, wrote 154 books among which "Labyrinth of the World and Paradise of the Heart" compared the world to the labyrinth entered by a pilgrim elect of God, and showed that the way out is by leaving what is needless, and choosing the one thing needful—Christ.

He is joined by two guides, Searchall Ubiquitous (an allegory of human curiosity and longing for knowledge), and Delusion (an allegory of the indolent adoption of conventional and shallow thoughts). He desires employment that would best suit both his body and soul, however his guides make him look through worldly glasses so that only infrequently does he glimpse reality: his decisions are not found on intrinsic fact, and like Solomon he sees only Vanity even in the Castle of Wisdom.

Through his worldly glasses he sees life as meaningless and is terrified by death, but when he returns to the paradise of his heart he finds salvation. There through the lens of God's unchanging Word, Christ reveals the true motive and objective of life, the universe and everything. As he discovers the dichotomy between natural and Spiritual motives and objectives he discerns the vanity of human endeavor that focuses on the material world rather than recognizing the one thing needful and following the will of God as it is revealed in the Bible rather than church tradition and dogma. The pilgrim regenerated finally beholds the glory of God and is recognized among God's elect.

It is so easy even for us who have the revelation to become preoccupied with this world, which is the kingdom and work of Satan transparently unfolding through hidden plans and secret associations of worldly-wise religious, political and business leaders, to be distracted from the one thing needful—Christ, the anointed Word for this hour.

God hides Himself in humility and reveals Himself in simplicity to the most illiterate and uneducated individual. When asked, "Would the Bride of Christ have a ministry before the rapture?" Brother Branham replied, "Sure. That's what's going on right now . . . She consists of apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists, and pastors . . . She's got a ministry, great ministry; it's the ministry of the hour; it'll be so humble" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 494:Q22). Indeed, it is so humble it flies right over the head of most brethren who follow the "letter" of his Message.

Satan is a boaster, always working under another name and in a different occupation in a sensual display of wisdom and beauty with noisy announcements about his deceptive propositions. God is the Quiet Achiever whose warnings of judgment speak in the paradise of the heart the revelation of His vindicated prophets: humble men like Moses (Numbers 12:3), Jesus Christ (John 1:18), Paul (I Corinthians 2:1-5) and William Branham (Luke 17:28-30) who glorify His Name. Only true pilgrims seeing through the lens of His Word will receive the inspiration. Satan is known by the ten mortal senses but the Lord God is known by faith that stems from belief in His Word, which is the expression of His Being.

Jesus called Satan "a liar and the father of lies" (John 8:44; Genesis 3:4). With his children he propagates his lies through their control of Hollywood, the press, radio, television and education. They control banking and the economy, stock and commodities markets, trades and professional associations and every government. With no moral restraints he can employ this machinery of propaganda to conjure up whatever illusion he needs to accomplish his purpose. Satan is a showman.

God employs no bluff or hidden device, He simply declares His Word. Some falls on ground with no depth of soil and quickly shoots but as quickly dies for dearth of Spiritual moisture. Some falls by the wayside where it is choked by weeds and the cares of this world, while a portion falls in the good ground of a predestinated soul and brings forth fruit (Matthew 13).

Regardless of the dark clouds of tribulation gathering on the horizon, God's Word is true and its promise sure. Depression is imminent, but if you take God at His Word He will provide your genuine needs and you will prosper (Malachi 3:10). "Cast your cares upon Jesus; for He careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the Devil, as a roaring lion, walks about seeking whom he may devour. Resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are experienced by your brethren in the world. But the God of all grace, Who has called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, makes us mature, established, strengthened and settled once we have suffered a while" and overcome (I Peter 5:7-10).

Have you, like Paul become a fool for Christ, exchanging your prestige for beatings and imprisonment? Have you like Moses forfeited a kingdom? or been despised, rejected and spat upon as king David was by his subjects? God assures us, "My grace is sufficient for you: for My strength is made perfect in your weakness" (II Corinthians 12:9). "For all things work together for Good to those who love the Lord and are the called according to His purpose" (Romans 8:28).

Whilst living responsibly as wise stewards of those things with which we have been blessed, we must unburden ourselves of non-essentials that weight down Christian service. Have trust and substance been stolen by an erstwhile friend? Have you lost your business or employment? Has your health suddenly deteriorated? Have you been indicted for "thought crimes" because characterless politicians and cringing bureaucrats betrayed your nation to powerful aliens whose vicarious father is a liar and the father of lies?

James the Lord's brother said, "Count it all joy, my Brethren, when you meet various trials, well aware that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."

"If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men without reserve and without reproach, and it will be given him. But he should ask in faith with never a doubt; for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed with the wind. Let not that man imagine he will receive anything from the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways."

"Let the Hebrew Brother of humble station rejoice in his exaltation [to oneness with God through Christian faith], and the wealthy Hebrew Brother in his [theological] humiliation [of Talmudic pseudo-Messianic expectations, being reconciled with pious Christian humility in the true revelation of millennial glory], because he will pass away like the flower of the grass [as the old theocratic glory of Israel had passed away with the crucifixion of Christ]. The sun has risen with its burning wind and withers the grass; its flower drops off and its beauty disappears. So will the rich Jew or Hebrew Christian quickly fade away in his undertakings [if he refuses to learn the glory of his humiliation]."

"Blessed is the man who endures trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of Life which God has promised to those who love Him. Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted by God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, and He Himself tempts no one. But each person is tempted when he is drawn away and enticed by his own desire. Then when the desire has conceived it gives birth to sin: and sin, when it is reaches maturity, brings forth death."

"Do not be misled, my beloved Brethren. Every good endowment and every perfect gift is from above, it descends from the Father of lights with whom no variation occurs nor shadow cast by turning. Of His own volition He gave us new birth by the Word of truth, so that we should be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures" (James 1:2-18).

If you are experiencing unexpected difficulties and perhaps irreversible trials now, rejoice and be sensitive to the leading of the Lord who may be cutting the anchor chains of reliance upon your ten mortal senses and this natural world to cause you to exercise wings of Eagle faith and ride upon unseen heavenly currents, for nothing happens to God's children without divine purpose and ultimate blessing. God's motive is to mold you into the likeness of His character that the stature of the perfect Man may be evident in your life (Ephesians 4:13; II Peter 1:2-8). His objective is for you to apply His Word by faith in prayer to overcome the Enemy and adversities of this natural world that He may gather glory to Himself as His promised Word manifests in your life.

Like Comenius, having found the one thing needful we must follow Him through the Gate of Separation out of the labyrinth of human reasoning, man-made traditions and the reflex action of our ten senses. The shout of I Thessalonians 4:16 was confirmed by the heavenly Voice of the Archangel bidding us, "Come out of [the labyrinth of] Babylon, that you do not partake of her sins, and do not receive her plagues" (Revelation 18:4; Matthew 25:6).

"Obedience is better than sacrifice" (I Samuel 15:22). We must practice obedience NOW. If God's Word is not working in our lives right NOW through the obedience of faith we have no assurance it will work in the time of the 'squeeze' when the sole resource, strength and stay on which we can call will be the 'third pull' in the manifestation of the Sons of God. The blessing, dynamics or promises of God's Word can only operate when the mechanics of obedience are in order. Once the Seventh Trumpet signals the end of the Gentile dispensation the only sacrifice God will receive will be your life as a martyr; then you will have to appeal after the general resurrection, because for you, the election is off.

Like Moses and Paul, we have found that all of our learning was error. That is why He is calling the wise and foolish virgin OUT from denominational traditions into the unity of the faith. Each has the same nature as their Roman Catholic mother, the great whore, and they are harlots since they are committing adultery against the Word they claim is their husband.

Christ's Bride has been called to glory by the revealed Word prophesied for this hour. Christians recognize the works of the Devil, and being forewarned of God about the coming collapse of the world's economies and depression, are forearmed.

Satan and his children have engineered this global financial catastrophe which is collapsing banks and defrauding national economies of money by trading worthless securities to fund the purchase of failed companies for cents in the dollar, culling competition and centralizing wealth and power. Treacherous politicians are swapping national independence for totalitarian Marxist world government by the ultra-rich who are not planning to takeover just one country like Russia or China, but the whole world.

God's children know that soon there will be a series of earthquakes after which Russia will attack and invade the USSA. We are forewarned by the indwelling Holy Spirit (John 16:13). Soon we will be hated and despised: refugees in own community with no money, no food and nowhere to lay our head. But like our Lord Jesus we will have the Word of God, and under pre-eminence to the Word—what we speak God will do in the manifestation of the Sons of God. He will inspire us to speak His Word in simplicity like Jesus Christ 2,000 years ago, and William Branham forty-three years ago.

Comenius wrote, "Christendom has become a labyrinth. The faith has been split into a thousand little parts and you are made a heretic if there is one of them you do not accept. . . What can help? Only the one thing needful, return to Christ, looking to Christ as the only Leader, and walking in His footsteps, setting aside all other ways until we all reach the goal, and have come to the unity of the faith. As the heavenly Master built everything on the ground of the Scriptures so should we leave all particularities of our special confessions and be satisfied with the revealed Word of God which belongs to us all. With the Bible in our hand we should cry: I believe what God has revealed in this Book; I will obediently keep His commands; I hope for that which He has promised. Christians, give ear! There is only one life, but Death comes to us in a thousand forms. There is only one Christ, but a thousand Antichrists. . . So thou knowest, O Christendom, what is the one thing needful. Either thou turnest back to Christ or thou goest to destruction like the Antichrist. If thou art wise and wilt live, follow the Leader of Life."

"But you, Christians, rejoice in your being caught up, . . . hear the words of your Heavenly Leader, Come unto Me . . . Answer with one voice, Even so, we come".

"The love of money is the root of all evil" because in the wrong hands money can be a means to amoral empowerment over one's neighbour in satisfaction of unbridled hubris—of the pride of life, and the lust of the eye and of the flesh. Such are the self-absorbed, their conscience seared with a hot iron, and having sold their soul to the Devil, they have instituted his long-term plan whereby the whole world has been lured into his debt trap—not simply individuals and corporations but nations, all nations.

Jesus Christ died to secure our future and make reconciliation for the past: knowing He holds our future in His hands we live for Him daily, overcoming evil by the Word of God and prayer without anxiety for tomorrow. The treasured desires of our hearts are stored in heaven where neither moth nor rust corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. These treasures are not material but the promise of God's Word stored up by faith.

Those who love the world and the things of the world often love money as their means of exchange and storehouse of values. They too belong to a kingdom, but the kingdom of "Get." Money is a form of potential energy which, converted into kinetic energy becomes a power over humanity, particularly those disadvantaged by poverty, illness, illiteracy, debt, and a poor and acquisitive character desirous of material and sensual pleasures, often at other's expense. Unlike Jesus Christ, those of the kingdom of "Get" are stealing the future of unborn generations to sate their mortal senses in the present.

In Newsletter #449 we described how the children of Darkness have misapplied the laws of physics to finance, economics, and in particular fractional reserve banking, in order to harness the potential energy of fiat money issued as debt and convert it into kinetic energy to take possession of the assets of individuals and resources of nations, even demanding a man purchase a temporary license to lawfully earn his daily bread. Rothschilds and subsidiary banksters have developed a means of virtual time travel whereby their tentacles reach to the future and commandeer "merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odors, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men".

In 1962 Brother Branham said, ". . . this present government now is spending . . . tax money that they'll be collecting forty years from now. She's done. That's "Life Line" right out of Washington D.C., across the nation. Taxes, they're spending and trying to buy foreign [friendship – Ed] . . . Why, they're just giving it out any way. . . . Now, if this nation goes busted, the only thing it can do is go busted. The only thing that it can do is go bankrupt. That's the only sensible thing to do: change the currency. But they won't do it. Under this present ministration, Roman Catholic church owns the gold of the world, and what they'll do is sell out. These rich men and so forth of the earth, as the Bible said, what will they do before they lose the Brown and Williamson tobacco company (most all of them's Catholic anyhow), and all these other things, what will they do? They'll accept that and they'll take the money from Rome, and then she's sold her very birthright. Rome backs her up. Yes, sir. . ."

"There's no need of voting any more. What's the use of voting? When they put it in the paper and proved it before the public, and they refused to do anything about it; when they proved that the machines across the nation was set up, that they elected Mr. Kennedy by a false vote. Don't the Bible say that he would come in by deceit? A falsehood. Now, I'm not against the Democrat party no more than a Republican party, but I'm just stating facts from the Bible. What's the use of voting? They know who's going in there" (Stature of A Perfect Man, p. 53:391-393).

"See, the Catholics is the richest group in the world, nobody like them. And what they don't have, the Jews has the rest... We don't have any money; and we're only living off of a past reputation. . . That's what the church is doing today . . . and that's the reason we think we'll be saved. God never respected Israel on what they was, what they had been . . . But if we can borrow that money. . . See how smart he is? Then the nation sells out to the church and then church and state is united again. . ." (COD, p. 850:Q201).

Forty-six years ago Brother Branham spoke of events that are just now coming to a climax. Satan is the sum of wisdom and beauty, and his earthly deputies are highly cerebral men and women not ignorant and unlearned, but even those who "have a form of godliness" are without Christ. The global depression foretold by Brother Branham has been meticulously planned by the same agencies that planned, executed and accomplished the objectives of the Great Depression. As we have just read, even their subordinate operatives dare not confess their folly but hide their sins in order to maintain the systemic corruption of the perpetual money-making fraud of Babylonian fractional reserve banking.

How different to Christ and His Kingdom—admission to its City and streets of gold is without money and without price but by unmerited grace through faith. Admission to Satan's kingdom is by works: always working under another name and in a different occupation his motto is "By Way of Deception Thou shalt make War" (Genesis 3:15; 4:14-15). His fraudulent scheme for transforming potential energy into kinetic energy is founded on usury for debt that can never be discharged because the interest is nonexistent money that must be deprived from third parties requiring ever-increasing debt with ever-more interest to keep the machine in perpetual motion and its balls of ticket money in the air.

The world's banking system is as bankrupt as the nations, particularly the colonies of the Jews' 'City of London,' Britain, USSA, Canada, Australia, etc., But China, Japan, India and Russia are also caught in Satan's debt trap as financiers of the USSA because their foreign reserves are denominated in potentially worthless US treasury bonds. The political parties that rule the world's Hegelian sham democracies are controlled by banksters, and their politicians love money and the praise of these great men more than God, principle and country. Love of self and "fear of the Jews" prevents them from fixing the problem once for all by placing unstable banks under management, arresting, incarcerating and fining culpable directors and officers. Governments should not guarantee banks with taxpayer's money but rule them with iron legislation by enforced eye for eye and tooth for tooth, as in Germany, confiscating the assets of offenders.

We know from Matthew 4:8-9 that Satan controls all nations. This does not induce trust in our political leaders whose corruption is illustrated by the transference of public money to "socialise" the contrived losses of corrupt banksters who can't be too pinched since government, at least in the USSA, will borrow the funds at interest from Rothschild's Federal Reserve. According to plan, the so-called bailout will sustain the corrupt system, devalue the currency, collapse the world economy and bring the nations into bankruptcy. Government interference is exacerbating the problem and will lead to the depression prophesied by Brother Branham in 1961.

Proverbs 22:7, "The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender." Guaranteeing the banks is a fool's game. Only the naively foolish, those who have been corrupted or who are "afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so persuasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it" (Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom p. 13-14).

Luke 16:13, "No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or he will support the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon." God does not change. Nor does human nature, and we, like Israel in Old Testament days, tend to forget that God is the One who has blessed our nation. So today when we ignore His ways, He withdraws His protection and turns us over to the natural consequences built into His creation: earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, hurricanes, drought, flood, famine and plague.

Brother Branham said, "America . . . It's a million miles from being a Christian country. I don't even pray for it. How can I pray for it, and it won't repent under the mighty powers of God demonstrated before it, and denying, and closing the doors to it, and walking away? I commit it to God. And she's going further away, and now she's going to sink. Just watch what happens" (Trying to do God a Service without His Will, p. 23:135).

How can a Christian pray for his nation when we are at the terminus of the Gentile dispensation and the Lord God is about to "smite the earth with a curse" because the nations have rejected grace although Jesus Christ was revealed the same yesterday, and today, and forever in Brother Branham's ministry by the Messianic sign and identical wonders as Jesus promised (Luke 17:28-30). God cannot bless what He has cursed (Revelation 13:10).

As Jesus glorified the Father on the earth and completed the task He was given to do, we are to manifest Jesus' Name as the Sons of God after which He will glorify us in His Presence with the glory we had with Him before the world existed.

Build on the Rock and not upon the sands.
You need not fear the storm - or the earthquake SHOCK!
You're safe for ever more - if you build on the Rock". nl551.htm

Bible Believers' Newsletter #550
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
ISSN 1442-8660

Greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ and thank you for your fellowship around God's unchanging Word.

Without prophets, the elect remnant would be considerably diminished from even its present minuscule number, and God's chastisement with a view to correction and repentance could never realize its objective, for faith is a clear understanding of God's revealed Word, which He interprets either by bringing it to pass or by sending a prophet. In these last days God vindicated William Branham as the 'Elijah' of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7. Without his inspired ministry we would have THUS SAITH THE LETTER of God's Holy Bible without THUS SAITH THE SPIRIT to understand what it means.

I fear a great many God-fearing lovers of Jesus Messiah in the circle of this Message are twofold more confused than they were before they were called, holding THUS SAITH THE LETTER of the Prophet's Message without THUS SAITH THE SPIRIT to understand what it means. Reading between the lies of our alien-controlled mass media, corrupt banksters, politicians, businessmen, and the world's religious leaders, we see Brother Branham's end-time prophecies coming to pass very quickly. The hour is late, yet how does one reach these precious souls imprisoned in the letter of THUS SAITH THE LORD without the Spirit?

If the Spirit of the Lord is upon you as it was upon Ezekiel before the Shekinah departed from Jerusalem's temple, you will be moved to seek those who sigh and that cry for all the abominations that are done in Christendom, especially to souls within the circle of this Message, and pray that the Lord will somehow open their eyes and ears to develop faith that will set the mark of God upon their foreheads.

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


Is the Pope Catholic? Now He plans to rehabilitate 'Heretic' Martin Luther
March 6, 2008 – The Pope is planning to rehabilitate Martin Luther—whose actions instigated the Protestant Reformation by arguing that he did not intend to split Christianity but only to purge the Church of corrupt practices. . . The move, a month ahead of the third anniversary of Pope Benedict's election, is aimed at mending fences after July's blunt papal statement that the Protestant and Orthodox faiths are "not proper Churches."

"We have much to learn from Luther, beginning with the importance he attached to the Word of God," said Cardinal Walter Kasper, head of the pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. . .

Luther, born in 1483, was appalled on visiting Rome in 1510 to witness the wealth, worldliness and corruption of the papacy. He insisted that the Bible, not the Vatican, was the sole source of religious authority—and to underline his point he translated it from Latin.

In the famous 95 Theses which he nailed the door of a Wittenberg church in 1517, Luther attacked the practice of selling papal "indulgences" granting remission of sin. This act is generally regarded as the spark of the Reformation. The news of the re-evaluation of Luther comes hot on the heels of the revelation that the Vatican plans a statue of Galileo, the astronomer it once tried for heresy, for the fourth centenary next year of his invention of the telescope. Both are part of an attempt to soften Pope Benedict's image as a hardline conservative. . . Full story:


Gold runs out in German Rush
October 10, 2008 – Risk-averse Germans are turning to gold in troubled times—but there's none left. German gold dealers say demand has skyrocketed this past week to 10 times normal so no more orders can be taken for the foreseeable future. Gold deliveries now take between four and six weeks. The US mint said on Monday it had exhausted some of its supply of bullion coins and was struggling to meet demand for gold, silver and platinum.

South Africa's Rand Refinery, producer of the world's most popular gold bullion coin, the Krugerrand, temporarily ran out of the coins in August. . . Full story:


Israel’s Toy Soldiers
October 1, 2008 – If you are a young Muslim American and head off to the Middle East for a spell in a fundamentalist "madrassa," or religious school, Homeland Security will probably greet you at the airport when you return. But if you are an American Jew and you join hundreds of teenagers from Europe and Mexico for an eight-week training course run by the Israel Defense Forces, you can post your picture wearing an Israeli army uniform and holding an automatic weapon on MySpace. . .

Those who go through the Marva summer program are indoctrinated as thoroughly as Muslims who go overseas and are told they are part of a greater jihad for Islam. The results, given Israel’s close alliance with the United States, may not be negative for those in power in the United States, but it may be very negative for those Americans defined as the enemy, especially Muslims, should we suffer another 9/11. The program inculcates hatred and a belief in the efficacy of violence to solve the problems in the Middle East. It identifies Israel with militarism. It feeds the idea that a Jew born in Brooklyn has a birthright to settle in Israel that is denied to an American of Palestinian descent. . . Full story:


Bush to Assad: Sever Ties with Iran and take the Golan Heights
October 18, 2008 – A Palestinian Authority source quoted in the report said Bush reportedly proposed "a quick and satisfactory solution" to Syria's dispute with Israel over the Golan Heights. The "solution" was to be finalized "within several weeks, before the US presidential elections, in order to push the Middle East peace process, an achievement the president will be able to proudly present before leaving the White House in January," according to Cairo-based journalist Abdel-Wahab Al-Nasser.

The offer allegedly came in a letter sent via PA Chairman and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas, who arrived in Damascus for meetings with Assad and other Syrian officials beginning last Saturday. . . Full story:


Biblical versus Postmodern Thinking
The word "postmodern" may sound unfamiliar, but it's an important concept. Today's "postmodern" leaders and social engineers are using it to explain and justify changes that are transforming churches around the world. If we don't know its meaning, we can't really understand the impact of today's social revolution on faith and evangelization.

This chart lists the main postmodern obstacles to victorious faith. It shows the new meanings given to Biblical terms, and it lists Scriptures that clarify the confusion caused by postmodern thinking. Knowing these truths will strengthen your child's conscience and help anchor his or her mind in truth. These postmodern views are compared to Christianity

Psalm 19:7-14, "The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and altogether righteous. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the comb."

"Moreover by them is Your servant warned: and in keeping them there is great reward. Who is aware of his errors? Cleanse me from my secret faults. Also keep Your servant from presumptuous sins; let them not rule over me: then I shall be upright and innocent of gross transgression."

"Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer".

God has a plan that expresses the way, the Truth and the Life in such an unambiguous and simple form, even fools will not err from the path of true righteousness (Isaiah 35:8), and you are not a fool. Because God's plan is perfect it will not change from the commencement of man's pilgrimage in time to the new heaven and new earth in eternity (Genesis 14:20; Revelation 21:24-27). By adding to and taking from God's plan, man wants to have his own plans, and as a consequence the whole of creation is doing time, waiting in earnest expectation for the manifestation of the Sons of God.

Paul admonishes us to "Be followers of God, as dear children . . . for no covetous man (who is an idolater) has any inheritance in the Kingdom of Christ and of God. . . Prove what is acceptable to the Lord. And do not participate in the fruitless works of darkness, but rather expose them, for while it is a disgrace even to mention the things they do in secret, yet everything that is exposed by the Light is made visible, and where everything is made visible there is Light. Therefore it is said, Awake from your slumber, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you Light. See then that you walk circumspectly, not as foolish, but as wise virgins, who make the best possible use of their time, because these are evil days".

Since Christ's mediation for ignorance of the fulness of the Word ended forty-five years ago with the revelation of the Seven Seals, God no longer "winks" at men's ignorance of His revealed Word. The years of plenty have passed and there is a paucity of the Spirit because the righteous seed in which He dwells is just about sown and harvested. In the days of Lot, Abraham interceded for Sodom, and the Lord agreed to preserve the city if he could find ten righteous. Isaiah called Israel "a sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evil doers, [saying to those in Judah and Jerusalem]: Hear the Word of the Lord, you rulers of Sodom: give ear to the Law of our God, you people of Gomorrah" (Isaiah 1:4, 10). How much more evil is today after two thousand years of God's grace in Christ have been largely ignored? Following the translation of His end-time Bride only 144,002 elect will remain on the face of this earth: every one of them in Israel, which Jesus called a spiritual Sodom and Egypt (Revelation 11:8). Once this last of the righteous seed has been martyred God will lift his restraining hand and destroy those who have been destroying the earth (Revelation 11:18).

The days are evil. Soon grace will end and Satan will be cast down to earth, so redeem the time that "the words of your mouth, and the meditation of your heart, might be acceptable in the sight of God, your Rock, and your Redeemer." Otherwise you will be speechless, because God sent and vindicated Brother Branham to restore us to the apostolic faith and unveil the revelation of Jesus Christ that we might flee the disobedience of human reasoning to the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.

Malachi was the last prophet of the Old Testament announcing the advent of the Great Messenger of the New Testament. His ministry supported Nehemiah in the work of rebuilding the holy city during the initial "seven weeks" of Daniel's prophecy (Daniel 9:25). He finished his prophesies three hundred and ninety-seven years before Christ, and left the world without open vision for nearly four hundred years—the "sixty-two weeks" (Daniel 9:25-26) preceding the final week of Messiah's second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel (Daniel 9:27). His first two chapters portray apostate Israel whose profane and mercenary priests offered polluted bread, blind, lame and sick sacrifices, allowed Hebrews to marry the Serpent's seed, and whose wealthy felt no sympathy toward the poor. His third chapter foretells Messiah's first Coming to Israel in grace heralded by John the Baptist, and His second or 'parousia' Coming in judgment to sift the nation. "He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver and He shall purify the sons of Levi and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord an offering in righteousness." So universal is Israel's depravity—thanks to the Babylonian Talmud—the ministers of God need sanctifying.

After the Lord had announced the coming judgment for transgressions that will continue for 2,500 years and into the day of the Lord, He adds a gracious promise in Malachi 3:7, "Though you have scorned My statutes from the days of your fathers [who brought the Babylonian captivity upon themselves], and you too have not kept them. Return to Me [in penitence], and I will return to you [in blessings]" (Malachi 3:1; Zechariah 1:3). In self-righteous delusion, considering themselves "rich and in need of nothing"—not even repentance—Israel demands, "How shall we return? We have never gone away." Thereupon God exposes their sin. They have done what no man should attempt: the whole nation has tried to defraud God of tithes and (heave) offerings, and He promises that if they will bring His tithes into the storehouse He will bless them until they cannot contain the blessing, opening the windows of Heaven and pouring it out upon them.

Brethren, our Lord God is trying to do that right now. I know certain of the revelation He wants to show to the whole body of believers, both wise and foolish, but your withholding His tenth is preventing the blessing. The same lukewarm spirit that overcame the Israelites when the Lord was trying to restore their natural and religious life and prosperity toward the end of the Old Testament dispensation has overcome the world at the end of our dispensation and the spirit of Laodicea is smothering the revelation and Token Life from those in the circle of this Message. Only our unchanging God's long-suffering patience for the last elect to recognize their day and its Message has prevented Earth from being "consumed" long ago as it soon will be after the 144,000 elect "sons of Jacob" are re-born as a nation in one day (Malachi 3:6; 4:6; Isaiah 66:8).

Writing to the saints in Corinth, Paul said: "It is superfluous for me to write to you about the offering for the saints, for I know of your willingness, and I boast of you to the Macedonians, saying that Achaia has been ready since last year, and your zeal has stirred up a large number of them. I am sending these brothers so that our pride in you may not prove vain in this case, so that you may be ready: lest should some Macedonians come with me and find you unprepared, we—not to say you—should be humiliated because of our confidence. So I thought it necessary to urge the brethren to go on to you before me, and arrange in advance for this gift you have promised, so that it may be ready not as something extorted from you, but as a willing gift."

"I say this, He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, while he who sows bountifully shall also reap bountifully. Let each one give as he has planned in his heart, neither grudgingly, nor by compulsion; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every possible grace, so that you will always and under all circumstances have plenty for your own need and an abundance for every good work, as it is written: He has scattered abroad, He has given to the poor: His righteousness never fails."

"He who provides seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your resources and increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every respect for all kinds of generosity, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God; for the rendering of this service not only supplies the wants of the saints, but also abounds in many thanksgivings to God. Under the test of this service they are praising God for your loyal obedience in acknowledging the gospel of Christ, and by the liberality of your contribution for them, and for all others. And they feel a yearning for you in their prayer because of the unusual measure of divine grace that has come upon you. Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift [of redemption]" (II Corinthians 9:1-15).

In the Christian Church, those who serve the altar should live by the altar, and provision for the sacred ministers is a tithe of ten percent of the increase or net profit after taxes and the cost of production (such as seed, bricks, office rent, etc.,) are deducted. How else is a minister to live, provide for his family and serve God's people?

I Corinthians 9:1-14, "Am I not free [and at liberty to act as I choose, without being accountable to any man]? am I not an apostle? . . . are you not my work in the Lord? . . . I am certainly an apostle to you; for in the Lord you are the certificate of my apostleship. My reply to those who criticize me is this: Do we not have the right to eat and drink? Do we not have the right to be accompanied by a wife on our travels as the other apostles, and the Lord's brothers, and Peter? Or is it only Barnabas and I who must keep working for a living, while you supply these other ministers?"

"Who serves as a soldier at his own expense? who plants a vineyard without eating any of its fruit? or who tends a flock without enjoying its milk? Am I merely expressing human reasoning? or am I telling you what the Law also says? For it is written in the Law of Moses, You shall not muzzle an ox to prevent it from eating when it is treading out grain. Do you suppose God was thinking only of oxen when He said this? This was written for our sakes, because the ploughman should plough in hope and the thresher should thresh in expectation of a share in the crop."

"If we have sown Spiritual Seed among you, is it too much for us to expect to reap your material benefits? Since others who preach to you enjoy the right to share material benefits from you, should we not have an even greater right to them? Nevertheless we have not made use of this right, but endure everything so that we furnish no obstacle in the way of the gospel of Christ."

"Are you not aware that those who conduct the temple service make their living from the temple? and those who tend the altar of sacrifice share in the sacrificial offerings? In a similar way the Lord has directed that those who preach the Gospel should get their living by the Gospel".

As tithing is obligatory, the motive prompting you to liberality in the service of God ought to be greater now than under the Old Testament so that Christians go beyond the ancient Hebrews in consecrating both ourselves and our substance to God. Brethren, we must meet the requirements of God's unchanging Word, coming into the unity of the faith with the Token on display NOW. Don't wait for the tribulation to get right with God, it will be too late then, for like Esau you will have come to that place of no more repentance. Now is the time to find and fix any short comings, and to prove whether God's Word is working in your life as the Bible promises in Malachi 3:10. If God is not opening the windows of heaven for you, you must discover the cause of the drought now, before the close of the dispensation.

The dedication of a tenth to God was recognized as a duty before the time of Moses. Abram paid tithes to Melchisedek (Genesis 14:20; Hebrews 7:6); and Jacob vowed to the Lord, "I will without fail to give you a tithe of all You give me" (Genesis 28:22). In the new heavens and new earth the "saved" will bring the tithe of their increase to Christ and His Bride in the new Jerusalem (Revelation 21:24-27).

The first Mosaic law on this subject is recorded in Leviticus 27:30-32. Subsequent legislation regulated the destination of the tithes (Numbers 18:21-28; Deuteronomy 12:5-17; 14:22-29). In the days of Hezekiah one of the first results of the reformation of Yahweh Torah was the eagerness with which the people brought in their tithes (II Chronicles 31:5-6). The neglect of this duty was sternly rebuked by the prophets:

Malachi 3:8-10, "Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me. But you say, How have we robbed You?"

"In tithes and offerings. You are cursed with a curse: for you have robbed Me, the whole nation of you. Bring the full tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and thereby put Me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you, and pour out for you an overflowing blessing".

Israel was insensible to their guilt of defrauding God of His tithe and spoke in the tone of injured innocence, as if God was maliciously slandering them. Like many in the circle of this Message who feed on the fruit of the ministry yet withhold the tithes God ordained to continue and expand His work. The spirit of Laodicea is within the camp of the saints: "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I wish you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of My mouth. Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel you to buy of Me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich; and white raiment, that you may be clothed, and that the shame of your nakedness does not appear; and anoint your eyes with eyesalve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent".

The unchanging long-suffering God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is correcting those of you who have robbed him of the tithe of your time and the tithe of your increase. The tithe is His money for His Work, it is not intended for the widow woman down the lane or for the Red Cross. Your first duty to God is to bring your tithe and offerings into the storehouse where you get your spiritual food, and your obligation is to the pastor of your church, or if you do not have a pastor, to the minister who feeds your soul.

The fivefold ministry is also obligated to tithe. Even in the Old Testament there was a "tithe of the tithes" (Nehemiah 10:38). The Levites, having received a tenth of all the produce of the land, were required to give a tenth of this to the priests. The Levites were charged with the additional obligation to carry the tithes when received, and deposit them in the temple stores, for the use of the priests. So the Christian ministry is to tithe to their brother ministers from whom they receive their Spiritual food or revelation.

As you curse or despoil God of His tithes, He will curse or despoil you of His blessings so that in trying to defraud God we only defraud ourselves. If we would have God open His treasury, we must open ours. One cause of the barrenness of the Church is the parsimony of its members. So men who retain God's money in their treasuries will find it a losing possession. No man has ever lost by serving God with a whole heart, nor gained by serving Him with half a heart. We may compromise with conscience for half the price, but God will not endorse the compromise, and like Ananias and Sapphira, we shall lose not only what we thought we had purchased so cheaply, but also the price we paid for it.

The Lord says, prove Me by paying your tithes. Test Me, whether I will keep My promise of blessing you, conditional upon you doing your part, and pour out for you a superabundance of blessing such that nothing is withheld and there is not room enough to receive it (II Chronicles 31:10).

In Malachi 3:13-18 the Lord notices Israelite murmurers complaining that it is of no profit to serve Jehovah, for the wicked prosper (Matthew 5:45), the proud rejoice and are happy, and they who "tempt God are even delivered from judgment." He also notices an election who revere Him and fellowship in His Word, and declares, Do not judge before the time My work is complete. This present mixed state is allowed to test your disposition to trust in God in spite of perplexing appearances, and in order to make your service less mercenary.

God has "sent Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord." He died forty-three years ago so we cannot be more than months from the day when it will be shown that God has placed an everlasting distinction between the godly and the ungodly, and between the wise and the foolish virgin (Malachi 4; Psalm 58:11). This is what our Elijah, William Branham, had to say on the matter of tithing:

"Hebrews 7:7-9, "And without any contradiction the less is blessed of the better. (Certainly. Watch Who He is). And here men that die receive tithes;. . . (That's the priesthood of the order of priests and preachers and so forth, men that receive tithe, die. See?). . . but here He receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that He liveth."

"What would a man take tithings for, if he never was borned, and never will die, and was from beginning to end, and never had no father or mother or descent, and owned the whole heavens and earth and all in it, why would He take tithe? Why would he ask Abraham to pay tithes? You see what a strict thing it is to pay tithes? Tithing's right. Every Christian's duty bound to pay tithe. That's right. Never has been changed" (Hebrews Chapter 7 Part I, p. 310:122-123).

"Thank you, my little sister, for this tithing. As a minister, I'm supposed to receive tithing" (From that Time #60-07160).

Brother Branham, don't you feel that everyone who claims to be a Christian should pay tithes, pay their tithes into the storehouse of the Lord? Please give Scripture to this question.

All right, if you will. . . That is right, that the Bible said in Malachi the 3rd chapter, "Will a man rob God? And you say, 'Where have we robbed Thee?' In tithe and offerings. Bring all your tithe and offerings into My storehouse and prove Me," saith the Lord, "if I will not open up the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing that there'll not be room enough to receive."

That's a challenge to any individual. And if I only had the time, and would not get to this little Scripture that I wish to get to in about the next ten minutes, I would like to give you a personal testimony of how that I was even hungry, and my mother and them hungry, and my daddy sick, but I took my tithes out first and give it to God, and you ought to see what happened. I have never seen in my life, that any man or a woman, that if you only make one dollar a week, will bring the ten cents of that money and put it into your storehouse, your church where you come, if God don't bless that, call me a hypocrite. Yes, sir. That's a challenge to anybody. And every Christian. . . That goes to this other question. Every Christian should pay tithes. That's right. It should be done" (COD, p. 617:Q436).

Does a Christian not get to heaven because they do not pay tithe?

"I could not say yes or no to that. But I do believe that every Christian is obligated to pay tithings because it is a commandment of the Lord. "And blessed are they that do all His commandments, that they might have a right to enter into the Life, the Tree of Life." Now, I do believe that tithe-paying is essential to a Christian experience" (COD, p. 604:Q136; Revelation 22:14).

Would it be wrong to use tithes on church building funds?

"Well now, here's a touchy little thing for the church now. No, correctly, tithes is to go to the minister. That's right. In the Bible they had a box they'd set at the door in the Old Testament. This box was a fund where the people put in there for the repairing. . . You've read it many times in the Old Testament. They kept up the buildings and things like that. . . All the repairs on the buildings was taken care out of that fund. But all the tithings went to their priests, their pastors. Yes, tithings are to go for nothing else."

"I know people take their tithes and give them to a widow woman. That's wrong. If you've got anything to give the widow woman, give her, but don't give her God's money. That's not yours in the first place. That's God's.

"If you sent me downtown to get a loaf of bread, and you give me twenty-five cents to get the loaf of bread, and I met somebody on the street wanted something else, and I'd give him the twenty-five cents (See?), I give them your money. If they asked me for something, let them get it over here in this pocket and give them my money; but this is your money. And a tenth of it is the Lord's. And Levi the priest could live by the tenth."

"The tenth is to be a tithing that's to be brought into the storehouse with a promise of God to bless it and a proof. He said, "If you don't believe it, come and prove Me and see if I won't do it." See? That's right."

"The tithings goes into the church for the pastor and so forth like that to live on. And then the building funds and things like that is a separate fund altogether. Now, that is Scriptural. One time when we get started, I want to take a night. . . I've went here some time ago before I left the tabernacle and taken about two or three weeks and just on subjects like that and went plumb through it and showed what tithings was in the church " (COD, p. 680:Q161).

Should a person pay tithes to an individual, or should a Christian work?

"Sure he should. He's the one man that will work, is a Christian. "Pay tithes to an individual?" It depends on who the individual is. See? That's right. In Hebrews the 7th chapter, when Abraham, returning from the slaughter of the kings met Melchisedec, he paid Him a tithe. That was Melchisedec, the King of Salem, which is King of Peace, and King of Righteousness, which was nobody but God Himself. See?"

"But when you pay tithings. . . Really, where you owe tithings is where you get your food. "Bring ye all your tithings into My storehouse, saith the Lord. (That right?) And prove Me herewith saith God, that if I'll not open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing that you would not have room enough to receive it." I challenge any man or woman that's not a tithe payer to accept that."

"I could stand here till in the morning, telling you just what happened when I seen that, and what condition I was in. But just as loyal as I ever could, I paid tithes. And when I took my own money from the church here or from my campaigns, I'd take more. . . I'd give a tenth. Then I'd give it out to the ministers, and give the rest of it to ministers. Then when I couldn't do that, then the thing I did, I kept ten percent and give God ninety. And then, when the law told me I couldn't do that, I'd have to take. . . And if I did, it was going to be charged to it, then I had to take and bypass it into foreign missions and so forth, and then just take a wage out of that of a hundred dollars a week; and I pay my tithes from that."

"Yes, sir. I believe in paying tithes. It's one of God's blessings that's proven to be a blessing. You say, "That's of the Old Testament." It is of the New Testament too. Yes, sir" (COD, p. 1034: Q307).

When Brother Branham was in court over the income tax matter his attorney asked: "How do you get your money?"

I said, "What people send me." I'm looking in the face of people right now that sends me tithing continually. I never ask them, they just do it. That's the Holy Spirit. He's able to take care of His own" (The Baptism of the Holy Spirit, p. 17:74).

Bazaars, church fetes, and suppers are not God's way of supporting the Church. God said, "Bring the full tithes into the storehouse." The man who loves God will take pleasure in supporting God's work. You like to help those you dearly love, and when you help the Church, you are helping God. As Jesus said, "inasmuch as you have done it unto the least of these my Brethren, you have done it unto Me," and the minister being your servant is the least (Matthew 25:40; 23:11).

Finally: if you wish to be blessed, then do your duty—your full duty, put your shoulder to the wheel, gird on the Gospel armour and come up to the work. Then the Church will move on though all hell oppose it. But if Brethren leave all the labour to the minister, sit still, look on while he works, and do nothing to help, they will find themselves in Laodicea for their disobedience and unprofitableness in the service of Christ.

When Christians refuse to render to the Lord according to the benefits they have received they fall short of the mark of His high calling. God has opened the windows of heaven to the Church and poured them out a blessing, and He reasonably expects them to bring their tithes into His storehouse, and devise and execute liberal things for the Kingdom; but if they have refused and have not planned accordingly to promote the cause of Christ, the Spirit is grieved, and the blessing withdrawn because they would not be liberal when God had been so bountiful.

When Christians are not conscious of dependence on the Spirit but rely on their own resources, God curses their blessings. In many instances, they sin against their own mercies, because they get lifted up with their success, take the credit to themselves and do not give all the glory to God. Malachi 2:2, "If you will not hear, and if you will not lay it to heart to give glory to My Name, says the Lord of hosts, then I will even send the curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: indeed I have cursed them already, because you do not lay it to heart".

Your liberty in Christ means you are no longer constrained to keep the letter of the Law as a mere covenant of works, for your eternal destiny is the gift of grace. Your love to Jesus Christ will constrain you the more freely to render your all to Him (Romans 8:2-4; I Corinthians 6:20; Galatians 5:13; I Peter 2:16). And after having paid what justice and His will require should be paid to others (I Corinthians 7:29-31; 9:14) you will not keep the balance for yourself, though so freely given to you, but give it for His use and glory (Luke 19:13; Romans 6:15; 14:7-9; I Corinthians 12:7), surrendering all to Him as Jesus Christ pays back His all for our all as the reward of grace for our surrender of all to Him (I Corinthians 3:21-23; Galatians 6:7-10; Hebrews 6:10).

Isaiah: a Prophet from Time to Eternity

Bible Believers' Newsletter #548
"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.

A special greeting to our Brethren is the USSA. The Wall Street thugs who financed the Judaeo-Communist takeover of Russia in 1917 have openly communised America. Having rejected her last opportunity for national repentance in 1956/7, the USSA will soon unite with the Catholic church, her (once) Protestant image, and the proprietors of the Federal Reserve that has transformed Americans into motherless broke tax slaves.

Former Kansas State Trooper and Marshal Greg Everson correctly states: "The United States of America as [a tyrannical, fascist corporation masquerading as a de jure government - Ed], an incorporated entity with a corporate CIA, IRS, and a private central bank, has planned for this day. The people who have controlled the affairs and the destiny of this nation have planned well. They have provided for themselves with many miles of massive reinforced and stockpiled underground shelters. They have built over 600 detention camps for those of us who have constantly warned of this day. The government of the US will silence those that would have otherwise been vindicated in their Paul Revere roles. Even though the military and police agencies will be called on to round up the real patriots, they know that Americans now realize that it is the GOVERNMENT and their agents who are the domestic enemies referred to in our Declaration of Independence. This hateful group of plotters, who have stolen America and ravaged the soul of this nation, cannot stand the thought of their dirty rotten schemes being revealed to the light of day—so they will attempt to give the coup de grace to patriots who kept stating the obvious to those who would listen and prepare. . . "

Israel is a type of the church and the United States. The Lord warned Israel in the prophecy of Isaiah 6:8-13, and He has warned we Gentiles in the same Scripture and in the prophecies of Brother Branham.

Famine, food shortages, race riots, and when export orders dry up at year's end the economies of China and Japan will join a global depression. Truly, when the earthquakes sink Los Angeles and cleave the mount of Olives, "men's hearts shall fail them for fear in apprehension of those things which are coming upon the earth".

The world's dual citizen banksters have privatised public assets or hijacked control of essential non-profit utilities into for-profit public-private partnerships and commodified everything from rain to DNA, plants, and by taxing atmospheric CO2, even the air we breathe, in their desperation to create money that will pay interest to maintain their Babylonian fractional reserve banking that must one day collapse under the weight of exponential debt.

The monetary system will crash with the US dollar when Los Angeles sinks beneath the Pacific. The banksters will be given a reprieve in partnership with the Roman Catholic church who will refinance the US dollar with gold backing (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17:12-18). However, three and a half years later with the depression behind them and stability restored to the world economy and monetary system, Rome will break her agreement with the usurers and their mutual enmity will bring a persecution upon Jews in general, and because the world is convinced of the deceit that Jews are the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, fanaticism will lead to the martyrdom of the 144,000 elect Israelites (Revelation 6:11) and the rebellion of the Black Nobility against their erstwhile ally will lead to the utter devastation of Vatican City State and the United States, ushering in the battle of Armageddon and the consummation of life.

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


Three Questions the Government doesn't want You to ask about the Financial Crisis. And Three Shocking Answers!
1. Didn't Congress create the Federal Housing Authority, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Ginnie Mae and the Federal Home Loan Banks for the purpose of helping the public buy homes?

What happened is that clever businessmen schemed with members of Congress to create privileged lending institutions so they could get rich off the public's labor. In return, members of Congress got big campaign contributions from the privileged corporations and, as a bonus, even more votes. The public's welfare had nothing to do with it.

2. Who cares if a bank goes under? Won't the FDIC protect depositors?

The FDIC is not funded well enough to bail out even a handful of the biggest banks in America. . . The FDIC, as history will ultimately demonstrate, causes banks to fail. . . Remember, every government program ultimately brings about the opposite of the stated goal, and the FDIC is no exception.

3. Who are the "homeowners"?

Everywhere you turn, news articles are discussing how Congress, the President and the Fed are taking action to "help homeowners". . . The homeowners in question are not the residents of the houses. The homeowners are banks. . .
Full story: Elliott Wave International is offering the full 10-page report free if you'd like to read all 28 answers.

Comment: Do You REALLY Understand the Banking Crisis?. Like the Jewish Weimar Republic in Germany, and Zimbabwe with inflation running at 2.7 million percent per annum, the United States is trying to print its way out of trouble.


Goldman Sachs Bribed Senate to pass Bailout
How much bribe money does it take to transfer $700 Billion taxpayer dollars to Wall Street's elite? Here is the complete contribution list. Contributing author Paul Craig Roberts says, "The Paulson bailout saves his firm, Goldman Sachs. The Paulson bailout transfers the troubled financial instruments that the financial sector created from the books of the financial sector to the books of the taxpayers at the US Treasury.

This is all the bailout does. It rescues the guilty. The Paulson bailout does not address the problem, which is the defaulting home mortgages. Full story:

Comment: The leader of the Federal Opposition in Australia's Hegelian sham democracy is ex-Chariman and CEO of (Rothschild's) Goldman Sachs while our glib tongued PM has played the hand of the 'city of London' by guaranteeing deposits in Rothschild's Commonwealth, ANZ and Rockefeller-Westpac banks with public monies instead of regulation. He has in reality guaranteed Australia will join the jolly romp which the Prophet said will be worse than the Great Depression and lead to Lucifer's totalitarian one world government (BIS Quarterly Review, September 2008 Statistical Annex, take note of the outstanding derivatives).


Representatives threatened with "Martial Law" if Bailout Bill did not Pass
October 4, 1008 – During his speaking time on Thursday, Congressman Sherman stated explicitly, "Many of us were told in private conversations, that if we didn't pass this bill on Monday, the sky would fall, the market would drop two or three thousand points, another couple thousand the second day, and a few members were even told that there would be Martial Law in America if we voted no (to the bail out bill)."

Earlier this week, Congressman Michael C. Burgess from the 26th District of Texas, went public on Monday stating live on Infowars nationwide radio broadcast, that House speaker Nancy Pelosi had declared House Rule 136A, effectively putting the House under "Martial Law" rules, a dictatorial measure only activated during times of national emergency.

Physical Martial law may be invoked by the President of the United States in case of any deemed "state of emergency". Martial Law has not been put into practice since Lincoln, when several Congressmen were arrested or put under house arrest. In 1878, Congress passed the Posse Comitatus Act, which forbids military involvement in domestic law enforcement without congressional approval. However, both the Military Commissions Act of 2006 and USNORTHCOM has increased its direct involvement with US civilian administration. Additionally, the John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007, and President Bush's recent PD51 may possibly rescind previous limits by suspending Government as well as other Constitutional guarantees such as habeas corpus. . . Full story:

Comment: Such emergency is "any incident . . . that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the US population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions." 500,000 coffins are stored in Georgia for this "emergency." Obviously something is planned or the USSA would not have 800 staffed internment camps, each accommodating 20,000, and one in Alaska able to accommodate two million "dissidents."


States, Economies and Markets: Redefining the Rules
October 13, 2008 – Accounting rules have required that assets be "marked to market," that is, evaluated according to their current market value—which in the current environment is not very generous, to say the least. Many want to abolish "mark to market" valuation and replace it with something based on the underlying value of the asset, which would be more generous. The problem with this theory is that, while it might create healthier balance sheets, financial institutions don't trust anyone's balance sheet at the moment. Revaluing assets on paper will not comfort anyone. Trust is in very short supply, and there are no bookkeeping tricks to get people to lend to borrowers they don't trust. No one is going to say once the balance sheet is revalued, "well, you sure are better off than yesterday, here is a hundred million dollars."

The question therefore is how to get financial institutions to trust each other again when they feel they have no reason to do so. The solution is to have someone trustworthy guarantee the loan. The eurozone solution announced October 12 was straightforward. They intended to have governments directly guarantee loans between financial institutions. Given the sovereign power to tax and to print money, the assumption was—reasonable in our mind—that it would take risk out of lending, and motivate financial institutions to make loans.

The problem with this, of course, is that there are a lot of institutions who will want to borrow a lot of money. With the government guaranteeing the loans, financial institutions will be insensitive to the risk of the borrower. If there is no risk in the loan whatsoever, then banks will lend to anyone, knowing full well that they cannot lose a loan. Under these circumstances, the market would go completely haywire and the opportunities for corruption would be unprecedented.

Therefore, as part of the eurozone plan, there has to be a government process for the approval and disapproval of loans. Since the market is no longer functioning, the decision on who gets to borrow how much at what rate—with a government guarantee—becomes a government decision.

There are two problems with this. First, governments are terrible at allocating capital. Politics will rapidly intrude to shape decisions. Even if the government could be trusted to make every decision with maximum efficiency, no government has the administrative ability to manage the entire financial sector so directly. Second, having taken control of interbank finance, how do you maintain a free market in the rest of the financial system? Will the government jump into guaranteeing non-interbank loans to ensure that banks actually lend money to those who need it? Otherwise the banking system could be liquid, but the rest of the economy might remain in crisis. Once the foundation of the financial system is nationalized, the entire edifice rests on the nationalized system.

The prime virtue of this plan is that it ought to work, at least in the short run. Financial institutions should start lending to each other, at whatever rate and in whatever amounts the government dictates and the gridlock should dissolve. The government will have to dive in to regulate the system for a while but hopefully—and this is the bet—in due course the government can unwind its involvement and ease the system back to some sort of market. The tentative date for that unwinding is the end of 2009. The risk is that the distortions of the system could become so intense after a few months that unwinding would become impossible. But that is a problem for later; the crisis needs to be addressed now. . .

The problem is administrative. It is all very well to say that the government will buy paper or stock in companies, or that it will guarantee loans between banks. The problem is that no institutions exist to do this. There are no offices filled with officials empowered to do any of these things, no rules on how these things are to be done, no bank accounts on which to draw—not even a decision on who has to sign the checks. The faster they try to set up these institutions, the more inefficient, error-prone and even corrupt they will turn out to be. We can assure you that some bright lads are already thinking dreamily of ways to scam the system, and the faster it is set up, the fewer controls there will be. . .

Castro: It's a 'Miracle' Obama is still alive
Havana, October 13, 2008 – Former Cuban president Fidel Castro charged that American society was marked by "profound racism" and that it was a "pure miracle" that US presidential hopeful Barack Obama has not been assassinated... Full story:

Comment: The so-called "Bailout," followed last weekend by meetings with finance ministers of the G7 and G20 nations, the IMF and WB will drag whole world into the Banksters' plot to create Satan's Eden, also known as the NWO. Therefore, is the presidential race between a white Republican and a coloured Democrat designed to ignite a racial bloodbath that will distract from the Money Power's trap of Lucifer's totalitarian one world government ruled by a global central bank?

Meyer Amschel Rothschild of Germany once said: "Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws . . . enforced unemployment and hunger, imposed on the masses because of the power we have to create shortages of food, will create the right of Capital to rule more surely than it was given to the real aristocracy."

Speaking of world government he said, "It will be necessary to establish huge monopolies, reservoirs of such colossal riches that even the largest fortunes of the goiim will depend on us to such an extent that they will go to the bottom together with the credit of their governments on the day after the great political smash."

Today the five-pointed pentagram representing the five Rothschild brothers with their banks, which possess the greatest accumulation of wealth ever known, emblazons the flags of the United States, Russia and other subject nations. Can you say "Federal Reserve"?

Churchill knew Rothschild's plan to return society to serfdom by retarding industry and encouraging debt. So did President Carter who endorsed the Global 2000 and Global Future Reports which spell out US policy intent.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is the front organization and debt collector for Rothschild's heirs and kinsmen whom Brother Branham called "Wall Street crooks." The colonial troops of the United States will be their enforcers in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week other wise known as the New World Order.

In his account of the questioning of Christian G. Rakovsky, one of the Jewish founders of Soviet Judaeo-Communism, by Soviet foreign agent Gavriil Gavrillovitch (the French Jew Rene Duval), Dr. J. Landowsky records:

"The understanding of how the financial International has gradually, right up to our epoch, become the master of money, this magical talisman, which has become for people that which God and the nation had been formerly, is something which exceeds in scientific interest even the art of revolutionary strategy, since this is also an art and also a revolution. I shall explain it to you. Historiographers and the masses, blinded by the shouts and the pomp of the French revolution, the people, intoxicated by the fact that it had succeeded in taking all power from the King and the privileged classes, did not notice how a small group of mysterious, careful and insignificant people had taken possession of the real Royal power, the magical power, almost divine, which it obtained almost without knowing it. The masses did not notice that the power had been seized by others and that soon they had subjected them to a slavery more cruel than the King, since the latter, in view of his religious and moral prejudices, was incapable of taking advantage of such a power. So it came about that the supreme Royal power was taken over by persons, whose moral, intellectual and cosmopolitan qualities did allow them to use it. It is clear that these were people who had never been Christians, but cosmopolitans."

"They had acquired for themselves the real privilege of coining money. . . It is clear that in your imagination there immediately appeared pictures of real money of metal and paper. But that is not so. Money is now not that, real circulating coin is a true anachronism. If it still exists and circulates, then it is only thanks to atavism, only because it is convenient to maintain the illusion, a purely imaginary fiction for the present day. . ." (See Newsletter #433).

Brother Branham prophesied a race war in the United States as a legacy of the Communist adulterer and plagiarist minister, Michael (alias Martin Luther) King. Will the cancellation of the presidential election and failure of the Obama campaign, which has a 14% lead over McCain, precipitate racial violence? With US unemployment currently at 14.7%, inflation at 13.2% and negative GDP, you can bet this is the intent of the usurers seeking to divert attention from their work of global impoverishment.

Speaking against the racial integration that was forced by the military in US schools and universities under the Kennedy Administration during the '60s, Brother Branham said, "I don't think the Holy Spirit's agreeing with him [Martin Luther King] at all on that. It's got the people all worked up in a bunch of ballyhoo. You see? Just like Hitler did over in Germany, led them right into a death trap, them precious Germans; and they laid by the millions, piled up there on top of one another. That's exactly the same thing, and remember I'm on tape; you'll see it maybe after I'm gone."

"That's exactly what's going to happen. Them precious people will die down there like flies. Starts a revolutionary, both white and colored will fight again and die like flies. And what you got when it's all over? A bunch of dead people" (The Third Exodus, p. 24:1-2; And Knoweth It Not, p. 37:2).


9/11 Truth Nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize 2008
In recent years, the 9/11 Truth Movement and their outstanding academic Dr. David Ray Griffin presented strong evidence that the attacks of 11 September were not carried out by Islamist terrorists, as we have been told, but by a US 'war elite' as an excuse to go to war against Afghanistan and Iraq (wars that were already approved). David Ray Griffin and the 9/11 Truth Movement have presented convincing evidence showing that this 'war elite' carried out these attacks to establish a new enemy after the Cold War, and to start wars in line with their economic and political interests. We believe the most important contribution to peace in the 21st century is the disclosure of these elite political games and the removal of the false reasons for its aggressive wars. This Griffin and the 9/11 Truth Movement have done in an excellent way. . .

Since 2001, the major mass media—the major newspapers, TV channels and news agencies—have been instruments of war propaganda. While more and more academics, military officers and intelligence analysts presented a growing amount of evidence that 9/11-attacks against New York and Washington were carried out by people inside the United States system, this information was not reported by the mainstream media. Despite the fact that almost 50% of the US population is skeptical of the official version of 11 September, the mass media has not presented the background for this skepticism. The regular mass media's inability to safeguard their democratic responsibilities have forced the 9/11 Truth Movement to put their information on the Internet. Despite the corruption in the regular mass media David Ray Griffin and the 9/11 Truth Movement have been able to present significant information that could have turned war to peace. This, as we understand it made them the most worthy candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize. . . Full story:

Why the Peaceful Majority is Irrelevant
February, 2006 – I used to know a man whose family were German aristocracy prior to World War II. They owned a number of large industries and estates. I asked him how many German people were true Nazis, and the answer he gave has stuck with me and guided my attitude toward fanaticism ever since.

"Very few people were true Nazis," he said, "but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories."

We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant, meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectra of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.

The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and extraneous. This image illustrates a recent 'Religion of Peace Demonstration' in London.

Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people. The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet. And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?

History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.

Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts—the fanatics who threaten our way of life. (Paul E. Marek, March 18, 2007).

Comment: The question that has evaded the author is the identity of the people behind the scenes. Who paid Professor Baron Karl von Ritter to draft National Socialism and simultaneously paid Karl Marx to modernise Rothschild's plans for International Socialism with the objective of bringing them together in controlled conflict in World War II? Who was behind Moses Hess and Theodor Herzl's promotion of political Zionism with the objective of bring it into controlled conflict with Islam in World War III? This 'hidden hand' is behind capitalism, whose materialist objective—absolute control by a wealthy elite is identical with the goal of Communism, and the genocide of Russians, Germans, Chinese, Armenians, Assyrians, and doubtless behind the French who admit to the Rwandan Massacre, and also, according to the late Joe Vialls, the USSA.

Anyone with an ounce of the Spirit can see this entity is at "enmity" with the first and last Adam and their offspring (Genesis 3:15). Like its father Cain, it always work under another name and in a different occupation (Genesis 4:14). This anti-Islamic entity is provoking innocent Islam into World War III which it planned in the nineteenth century along with World Wars I and II. It rules Britain, the USSA, Australia and their political leaders trusted to solve the present credit and economic scam; men and women who have in fact sold their nations under serfdom to the Illuminati banksters. The Bible says that very soon its fanatical lust for power will resurrect Roman Catholicism which with her (once) Protestant churches will kill all who will not accept their doctrine or do Rome service (Revelation 13:15-18).


Isaiah: a Prophet from Time to Eternity

Israel is a type of the Church, therefore Isaiah 6 applies to apostasy of the world church system at the end of the Gentile dispensation as it applies to Israel's 2,500-year apostasy and her rebirth in one day after the Church has spent three and a half years at the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the Sky.

Isaiah 6:1-4, "In the year that king Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphim: each one had six wings; with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called to another and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of His glory. And the posts of the door shook at the voice of the one calling, and the house was filled with smoke".

Like the denominations in the Laodicean Church Age which presume to be rich and in need of nothing, King Uzziah refused to receive correction and sought to assume the office of priest-king whereupon he was smitten with leprosy, a symbol of sin, and driven from the congregation of the saints like those who refuse the Message of God in Christ or Christ in Brother Branham (Malachi 4:6; Luke 3:23; Revelation 22:17-19).

When God commissioned Isaiah, He did not inform him of the content of the Message he was to declare so much as to make him conscious that not only will they refuse his Message, but that their refusal would harden their hearts as Moses' Message hardened Pharaoh's heart. When Isaiah asked the Lord how long His anger should last, he was told until Daniel's Seventieth Week at the close of the Gentile dispensation when there would remain only 144,000 Israelites who were elect.

Although Christ's end-time Bride is au fait and at-one with the Message of the open Book so that not only our lips but also our lives testify its mystery, we are forewarned that ceaseless hearing yet fruitless understanding will be the corollary of our ceaseless but fruitless testimony to the souls imprisoned now both within and without the circle of this Message. For God concludes the Gentile people in unbelief as he did Israel (Romans 11:32).

It is as if the Lord has said, testify in hope, but not in the expectation of being understood by more than one in a million; speak conscious of the reality that your words will be neither understood nor regarded by the mass, and that when they are understood and regarded, they will more often than not serve to completely harden the heart of the hearer, thereby constituting a testimony and a basis of judgment against them.

Jesus always spoke to the people in parables so that His Message would penetrate the very soul of those able to receive a clear revelation of what He meant, separating them from the make-believers who learnt and memorised only the "letter" of what He said. But as He spoke in parables, a certain measure of understanding, and consequently also a responsibility, would penetrate the hearers causing them to choose whether to give belief or unbelief the upper hand. John 12:37-43 tells us, even the many miracles of Jesus that personally touched the Israelites did not produce faith, because susceptibility was wanting. And that for fear of being excommunicated by the Pharisees, those among the Sanhedrin who believed intellectually (excluding Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea) did not confess their belief for "they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God" so belief did not ripen to faith.

God told Brother Branham, Do not explain the 'third pull,' which is the opening of the written Word, for it is a revelation to God's elect. And no matter how clearly one expounds his Message, proving it with God's Bible from Genesis to Revelation, many within the circle of believers will quote the "letter" of what he said to dispute the revelation of God's Word. Although "the Lord is not . . . willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" (II Peter 3:9), He placed each of us on the basis of free moral agency in order to separate His own, and through human reasoning the Devil hardens the heart, deafens the ear and shuts up the eyes of those disinclined to become one with His Word.

The last sign Jesus promised we Gentiles before the great and dreadful day of the Lord was the revelation of the Son of man "as it was in the days of Lot" when God veiled Himself behind the flesh of a created Man and discerned the thoughts and intents of Abraham and Sarah's hearts (Luke 17:28-30; Genesis 18; Hebrews 4:12). Next He veiled Himself behind the virgin-born flesh of Jesus Christ, revealing Himself by the same sign and doing many miracles as we read in John 12:37. In these last days God has veiled Himself behind the flesh of William Branham, a sinner saved by grace, and revealed "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever," discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart, raising the dead, restoring sight to the blind, casting out demons, and healing all manner of sickness and disease. And as it was in the days of His flesh, the people were blessed yet they did not believe and when the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in WORD form the denominational Pharisees put Him outside their church door.

Isaiah "saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple." However, "No man has seen God at any time [because He is a Spirit without bodily form]; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father has made Him known" (John 1:18). Isaiah saw the glory of Jesus, "the Lord of glory," whose "train" is the Bride of all ages (John 12:41; I Corinthians 2:8; James 2:1). The glory of God is Jesus, and the glory of Christ is His Bride (John 17:21-26; Romans 8:30; I Corinthians 11:3, 7; Ephesians 5:22-32). When God, the Father of glory gave birth to the Logos He expressed the fullness of His Attributes in the visible form of a Pillar of Light which is the Shekinah or Presence of God, "the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord . . . the beginning of the creation of God" which subsequently manifest in the virgin born flesh of our kinsman Redeemer.

As John 1 explains, before creation God was alone with His eternal thoughts, before they manifest as the Logos, "thought in speech" or Word, visible as Supernatural Light. John was a man sent from God to bear witness of that Light manifest in the flesh of Jesus Messiah. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." God is not a man that He should lie or the son of man that He should repent; God is a Spirit, not any second or third person of a Babylonian trinity but One Spirit, just as you, your soul, is one spirit and the Devil is one spirit. God is the eternal Holy Spirit. He is omnipotent and omniscient, however as a Spirit Being He cannot be omnipresent any more than you as a spirit being can be in more than one place at any one time, but being all-knowing is as if he were omnipresent. In Acts 28:25-31 Paul said, the Holy Spirit spoke the Words of Isaiah 6:8-13, which he quoted to prove the apostasy of Israel through their unsusceptibility to the Gospel was a vindication of God's prophet.

The Word or Logos is the expression of all the unchanging God is, was, or ever will be. God's Word is Spirit in a form we can receive by faith; this explains how the Holy Spirit can be in me in Currabubula, and simultaneously in you in Grove City, and in you in Karachi. The Bible is the story of God changing His form from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts to their transformation through faith in His spoken Word to the flesh of His glorified Family—Jesus Christ and the true Church—His Bride of all ages.

Jesus Christ was the Word before He was flesh: He is "the beginning of the creation of God" (Revelation 3:14). Not the beginning of God's creation, which is the Sun and the Moon and the rivers and trees, but the beginning of God creating Himself a part of creation. Eternity has neither beginning of days nor end of life, so if you have eternal Life you are one of God's Attributes foreknown in the Logos and will be baptized into His Body and manifest as a son in your designated and decreed season and time when "You are dead [to the world and the things of the world], and your [Gk. 'zoe' or eternal] Life is hid with Christ [the Logos] in God" (Colossians 3:3).

The elect are manifested Attributes of God's own Life that have been "hidden in the Logos from eternity with Christ in God." Speaking to the Logos wherein He foresaw and foreknew every man and women that ever will be, "God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon earth. [And in His great thinking] God created [all] of Adam's race in His own image, male and female." Those he foreknew as becoming written epistles of the Word for their day He predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. So each saint was potentially called, justified and already glorified before time or creation began. By foreknowledge His elect have existed in the Logos from eternity. We were always a part of God and can never be lost or cast aside. He has always seen us through the redeeming blood of Christ in sinless theophany which is the angelic form of our glorified appearance.

This explains redemption, which means "to buy back a possession that was lost" since the elect were already existing as Attributes in His eternal thinking, while the non-elect and even the Serpent's seed were simply foreknown. So when God said, let us—the eternal Spirit and the Logos—make man in our image and after our likeness He made Adam a spirit man or soul, then in Genesis 2 He formed and placed him into a body in the image of animal.

Long after creation was completed God separated woman as a by product of the man, "And God said, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth." He commanded them to overspread the earth so that He could deal with each person as an individual, for He has placed each one of us in on the basis of free moral agency.

God will not deal with an organization or group. Although He deals with Israel as a nation, He is dealing exclusively with an election of individuals out of the mass descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and living in the Promised Land. God is a separator, so it is as individuals that we are baptized with the Holy Ghost into the Kingdom.

Christ the Logos manifest as a theophany called the Tree of Life in the garden of Eden where Lucifer manifest as the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Having bypassed our theophany we are manifest in flesh to be tested and overcome by the Word of God and prayer so that our lives manifest the Word for our day. Having overcome, the Church Age saints are in their theophany in the Presence pending the first resurrection when they will return to put on their glorified bodies. After the manifestation of the Sons of God they will appear to supercharge our faith so we can change in the atoms without death.

The glory of God is Christ high and lifted up to God's own throne, which is heaven, for "All power in heaven and in earth is given unto Jesus Messiah . . . until He shall have put all God's enemies under His feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death" (Psalm 110:1; Matthew 28:18; I Corinthians 15:25-26; Revelation 3:21). But if Christ is "high and lifted up" so is His Bride as the two are one through the invisible marriage union. Paul prayed in Ephesians 1:17-23, "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him: the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, and the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power, which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: and has put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the Head over all things to the Church, which is His body, the fulness of Him that fills all in all".

"His train" is His Bride who are before God day and night and serve Him in His Temple. Indeed we are pillars of and integral with the Temple of God, which is Jesus Messiah, the Logos made flesh (John 2:19-21; Revelation 3:12; 7:9-17; 21:22-23). Furthermore, Christ's end- time Bride is caught up in the Spirit in Revelation 4:1 – 5:14 to see a later development of Isaiah's vision and the redeemed Church in theophany. We bear witness to the Pillar of Cloud that indicated the departure of the seraphim or sevenfold Spirit of God that anointed the messengers to the seven Church Ages, whose Messages in conjunction with Christ's mediation cleansed the hearts of the PART-Word saints (as the coal of Fire cleansed Isaiah), and signified Christ's imminent 'parousia' Coming (Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:4; 10:1-4).

There was no altar of sacrifice in the heavenly sanctuary since any offering other than incense rendering our prayer and revelation holy and acceptable to God is unthinkable. Isaiah saw the end of the Gentile dispensation as the seraphim type the Church Age Messengers whose ministry cleanses the elect of their age and offers them back to the Lord. Paul's ministry provided the incense of THUS SAITH THE LORD with which the saints of the Ephesian Church Age were sanctified, made acceptable and offered up to God, as Brother Branham's ministry, which restored the end-time Bride to the revelation of Paul and finished the mystery of God, was the "much incense," of THUS SAITH THE LORD, which added to the prayers or revelation of all saints makes the Body perfect (Romans 15:16; Revelation 5:8; 8:3-5).

The touching of Isaiah's lips with the coal of holy fire from the altar of incense is for the purpose of atonement as Christ's laying His hand upon John, who represents you and I, is for the purpose of imparting His strength in us through the revelation: "There is no need to fear. I am the first and the last, the Living One who died, and behold, I am alive for evermore, and I possess the keys of hell and of death" (Revelation 1:17-18). What is there to fear? The judgment that fell upon Him at the cross, at the grave, and when He descended, was for us. He absorbed the full brunt of the wound of sin. Romans 8:1, "There is therefore now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit".

Throughout the Book of Revelation, John represent's Christ's end-time Bride. We know this is so because the mystery of the Book was sealed from the foundation of the world. God revealed it to Christ after His ascension, and Christ revealed it to Brother Branham, the angel to the Seventh Church Age whom John saw and heard in the Patmos visions preaching these mysteries as Christ opened and revealed the Seals in 1963 (Revelation 1:1; 10:1-7). Like Isaiah, we see Christ in His Bride drawn out of all seven Church Ages standing in the midst of the golden lampstand (Revelation 1:8-20).

In Isaiah 6:4, "And the posts of the door moved at the voice of the seraph that cried, and the house was filled with smoke." From Israel's perspective, this points to the close of the sixty-ninth week of Daniel's prophecy and the brief Pentecostal Age at the commencement of the Gentile dispensation and the begriming of Israel's seven Trumpet Judgments, for the smoke is an antithesis to the Light in which the Lord dwells, signifying "partial blindness has come upon Israel, until the full number of the Gentiles come in" (Romans 11:25).

Under the Seventh Trumpet the smoke of God's wrath will clear for the 144,000 elect Israelites to receive a clear vision of Christ's renewed Presence with and favour toward Israel in Daniel's Seventieth Week as signified by the Old Testament symbols revealing the divine glory of Jesus Messiah, and the severity of God's wrath upon sinners.

Revelation 11:15-19, "The Seventh Trumpet angel sounded, and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdom of this world has become the Kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever. And the twenty-four elders seated on their thrones before God, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, saying, We give You thanks, Lord God Almighty, who is and who was, because You have taken Your great power, and begun to reign. And the nations raged, and Your wrath has come, and the time for the dead to be judged, for rewarding your servants the prophets, and the saints, and them who fear Your Name, small and great; and for destroying those who are destroying the earth. And the temple of God in heaven was opened, and the ark of His covenant was seen within His temple: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail".

From the Gentile perspective Isaiah 6:4 represents the commencement of the Seven Vials of the Ordeal of Jealousy by which a temporary judgmentis poured out upon the nominal church to separate and distinguish the "saved" non-elect from the impersonators (Revelation 15:5-16:21). Under the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial, the Gentile dispensation ends and Satan is cast out of heaven in a cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary to receive Christ's Bride for the Wedding Supper in the air.

According to Zechariah 14:6-8, toward the end of the Laodicean Church Age the days will be smoky so that "the Light shall be neither clear nor dark . . . but at evening time it shall be Light" through the revelation of the end-time Message. When Christ's mediation was fulfilled the Mercy Seat became a Judgment Seat, the sanctuary became smoky and with the revelation of the Seven Seals the full Word came into effect. There is mercy only under the Blood, that is, only in the end-time Bride who is the blood of Christ by the baptism of the Holy Ghost, for the Life is in the Blood. Romans 4:6-8, "Blessed is the man, to whom God imputes righteousness without works; Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin." Hence we must keep the Token on display, to sanctify all who come into our presence.

Earth is a mercy Seat so long as the Blood of Christ is here in the form of His Bride. The Presence of the Holy Spirit in us is all that restrains that man of sin, the son of perdition from revealing himself. He will be revealed after the Holy Spirit departs in the translation of Christ's end-time Bride following the first resurrection of the sleeping saints (II Thessalonians 2:6-9). Meanwhile, "Touch not My anointed, and do My prophets (Revelation 10:8-11) no harm" (Psalm 105:15).

After the Lord has foretold Israel's 2,500-year Spiritual blindness and apostasy, Isaiah asked, "Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities be waste without inhabitant, and houses without man, and the land is utterly desolate, and the Lord will have sent the people far away, and the forsaken sections of the land will be many. And though a tenth remains, it shall be consumed, as a terebinth or an oak, whose stump remains standing when it is felled. The holy seed is its stump".

The announcement of this judgment sounds absolute yet although Israel's apostate fanaticism was so gross they rent the mortal curtain veiling the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel from their profane gaze, it is not possible that the Lord should abrogate His promises to the patriarchs. Israel has been struck with spiritual death by the enemy within and overthrown by non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews, yet a stump of genuine blood Israelites remains among whom the faith of Abraham will be found in but 144,000. If this is a tithe of the present mass, less than 1.5 million descendants of the pure blood of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is extant, living mainly in Muslim lands of the former Assyrian empire. However, over the past 2,000 years many genuine Israelites—not Jews, who are generally unrelated to the patriarchs and have no part in God's Covenant with Israel—have sealed their salvation under the Fifth Seal, martyred for their testimony of the Commandments of God.

Employing the metaphor of an olive tree in Romans 11:15-16, Paul says, if God's repudiation of apostate Israel following their murder of Messiah has enabled His atonement to reach an election of Gentiles worldwide without their obstruction, their reception into the Kingdom of God will lead to greater blessing with the Millennium which is the restoration of the kingdom to Israel wherein the whole world is delivered from the bondage of corruption and glorified together with Christ (Romans 8:15-23; I Corinthians 15:35-56). His ground of reasoning in support of the race descended from the patriarchs is based on the heave offering of portion of the dough for the bread of firstfruits (Numbers 15:17-21). Paul says, "For if [Christ] the firstfruits of the resurrection is holy, the lump [of the harvest or New Testament Church baked into loaves and offered back to God] is also holy [for the consecration of the firstfruits in Christ's resurrection and glorification is the consecration of the whole lump]: and if the root [of patriarchal fathers – Romans 9:4-5] is holy, so are the branches [their 144,000 elect offspring]".

Romans 11:21-27, "If God spared not the natural branches [of the pure blood of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob], neither will He spare you [non-Israelites]. Note then the kindness and severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen; but kindness to you, provided you continue in His kindness: otherwise you too will be cut off. And they, if they do not persist in their unbelief, will be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again. For if you have been cut from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and grafted, contrary to nature, into a cultivated olive tree: how much more readily will these natural branches be grafted into their own original tree?"

"Lest you should be wise in your own conceits, I want you to understand this mystery, Brethren, that partial blindness has come upon Israel [causing insensibility to the Gospel], until the full number of the Gentiles come in, and so all of Israel's elect will be born-again [in one day – Isaiah 66:8]: as it is written, The Deliverer shall come out of mount Zion, and turn away ungodliness from Jacob: for this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins".

So you see, Brethren, when God turns from we Gentiles to deal with Israel in Daniel's Seventieth Week, He will be dealing exclusively with an election living in the Promised Land who have grown from the root of the pure blood of the patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, NOT Jews, few of whom are even Semitic, let alone Hebrews who are Israelites. Those among the impersonators that are in Adam's race are frittering away their possibility of redemption by prolonging the deception for "they love the praise of men more than the praise of God". nl549.htm
