The Vatican vs the 'Zionist Tsunami'
February 28, 2011 The January edition of La Civiltà Cattolicathe most authoritative magazine of the Jesuits, printed under the supervision of the Vatican . . . proclaims that "the Zionists were cleverly able to exploit the Western sense of guilt for the Shoah to lay the foundations of their own state. . . Vittorio Messori . . . recently wrote an editorial for the Italian daily Il Corriere della sera where he stated "All governments of all Muslim nations are under the tsunami of the violent intrusion of Zionism that has come to put its capital in Jerusalem. . ."
Archbishop Edmond Farhatthe official representative of Vatican politicsproclaimed that the ultimate cause of all the evils in the Middle East is that "foreign body" which is Israel: "The Middle Eastern situation today is like a living organ that has been subject to a graft it cannot assimilate and which has no specialists capable of healing it. . ."
THE CURRENT Vatican patriarch of Jerusalem, Fouad Twal, affirmed also that "you can't have both Zionism and democracy," supporting the "one-state solution. . ." Full story: jpost.com
Comment: This is an interesting development, for at the dispensation change I believe many Jews will abandon Israel and return to their homelands while the children of the twelve tribes of Israel will return to the Land of the covenant for their redemption (Isaiah 13:14-16; Zechariah 14:1-2).
American Bar Association supports Shariah Law in the USA
February 28, 2011 The American Bar Association (ABA) has decided to undertake the fight for Sharia law. The ABA's Executive Counsel 'has organized a Task Force to review the legislation of 14 statesAlaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wyomingin which anti-Sharia legislation has been introduced'. . .
In reality, Islamic law is the most radical and intolerant system of governance on the face of the earth. It denies the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, and legal equality for women and non-Muslims. That's why so many states are trying to ban it. The ABA should be on the forefront of this battle, on the opposite side. . .

Comment: The BAR is a Rothschild/Vatican golem from the Knights Templars. The long-planned World War III is between Political Islam and Political Zionists. The EU may be forced to start importing several million rioting Muslims. The immigration of innocent Muslim pawns is intended to exacerbate division, generate hatred and hasten for this war (Genesis 3:15; 6:1-13; 27:39-41; Matthew 24:37; Revelation 16:14). Libya, Egypt and Ethiopia will come under submission (Daniel 11:43).
High Court Judgment suggests Christian Beliefs harmful to Children
February 28, 2011 In a landmark judgment, which will have a serious impact on the future of fostering and adoption in the UK, the High Court has suggested that Christians with traditional views on sexual ethics are unsuitable as foster carers, and that homosexual 'rights' trump freedom of conscience in the UK. The Judges stated that Christian beliefs on sexual ethics may be 'inimical' to children, and they implicitly upheld an Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) submission that children risk being 'infected' by Christian moral beliefs. . .

Libya and Imperialism
February 24, 2011 Is it just coincidence that the rebellion started in Benghazi, which is north of Libya's richest oil fields as well as close to most of its oil and gas pipelines, refineries and its LNG port? Is there a plan to partition the country? . .
The Western media are basing a great deal of their reporting on supposed facts provided by the exile group National Front for the Salvation of Libya, which was trained and financed by the US CIA. Google the front's name plus CIA and you will find hundreds of references.
The Wall Street Journal in a Feb. 23 editorial wrote that 'The US and Europe should help Libyans overthrow the Gadhafi regime.' There is no talk in the board rooms or the corridors of Washington about intervening to help the people of Kuwait or Saudi Arabia or Bahrain overthrow their dictatorial rulers. Even with all the lip service being paid to the mass struggles rocking the region right now, that would be unthinkable. As for Egypt and Tunisia, the imperialists are pulling every string they can to get the masses off the streets.
There was no talk of US intervention to help the Palestinian people of Gaza when thousands died from being blockaded, bombed and invaded by Israel. Just the opposite. The US intervened to prevent condemnation of the Zionist settler state.
Imperialism's interest in Libya is not hard to find. Bloomberg.com wrote on Feb. 22 that while Libya is Africa's third-largest producer of oil, it has the continent's largest proven reserves44.3 billion barrels. It is a country with a relatively small population but the potential to produce huge profits for the giant oil companies. That's how the super-rich look at it, and that's what underlies their professed concern for the people's democratic rights in Libya. . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: As she prepared to fly to Geneva, Switzerland, for a Monday meeting of the United Nations Human Rights Council, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said 'we've been reaching out' to forces working to oust Qaddafi and are prepared 'to offer any kind of assistance that anyone wishes to have from the United States'.
However, I expect Libyans want nothing to do with the USA. Libyan opposition leader Ibrahim Sahad of the National Front for the Salvation of Libya (NFSL) attempted a CIA trained and supported overthrow of Gaddafi in 1984. He is doubtless once again armed and organized by the CIA.
Washington pushing for Civil War to justify a US-NATO Military Intervention?
February 25, 2011 The Libyan leadership is not outright subservient to the United States and the European Union. . . The destabilization of Libya would also have significant implications for North Africa, West Africa, and global energy reserves. . .
Reports by Al Jazeera about Libyan jets firing on protesters in Tripoli and the major cities are unverified and questionable. . . According to Wesley Clark, the retired general who was the supreme military commander of NATO, Libya was on a Pentagon list of nations to be invaded after Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. The list included Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Lebanon, Syria, and lastly Iran. . .
There is now talk about a 'humanitarian intervention' in Libya, similar to Yugoslavia and Iraq. A 'no-fly zone' over Libya has been mentioned, as has NATO military intervention. The aims behind such statements are not humanitarian, but are intended to justify foreign interference, which could potentially lead to an invasion. Should this come to fruition, Libya would become an occupied country. Its resources would be plundered and its assets privatized and controlled by foreign corporations as in the case of Iraq. . .

The Security Budget vs. the Necessities of Americans
February 22, 2011 President Obama and the Congress have taken 66% of discretionary spending in the federal budget off the tablethe Security Budgetwhile proposing a freeze to the rest of the budget and deep cuts to some programs that provide necessities for the American people. . . the so-called recovery has only been a recovery for Wall Street and big business, the administration and congress are focused more on [increasing - Ed] the deficit than on re-starting the economy for the rest of us. But there is more talk of cutting Social Security and Medicare . . . a contract with working Americans who pay for them in every paycheck. . . Payroll taxes fund these two programs that are essential for older Americans in their retirement years. Both face budget challenges but can be fixed, indeed Social Security has more than $2.5 trillion in Treasury Notes in reserve. . . President Obama has proposed the largest DoD budget since World War II. . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: According to Jewish World, "We have finally sought to materialize these invisible masters and, allowing the Cabalists to speak for themselves, we arrive at the revolutionary and cabalistic Jew, the most cosmopolitan of peoples, who look for the Coming of their Messianic Era. To some of these the Messiah is their race and their race is their God, the Tetragrammaton, the Creative Principle, this Serpent Power, binding and unifying, leading to the hope of merging all races, all faiths under the Law of this their Unity of Race, thus creating the "Greater Judaism" (9 and 16 February, 1883).
In 1953, H. Rowan Gaither, president of the Ford, the largest of all the foundations, confided personally to Norman Dodd, Director of Research for the Reece Committee of the US Congress investigating the use of funds by tax-exempt organizations to see if they were being employed to support communism: "Mr. Dodd, all of us here at the policy-making level of the foundation have at one time or another served in the 0SS [the Office of Strategic Services, the forerunner of the CIA) or the European Economic Administration, operating under directives from the White House. We operate under those same directives. . . The substance of the directives under which we operate is that we shall use our grant-making power to so alter life in the United States that we can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union."
(This reveals that the White House, CIA, USA and the EU are ruled by the same 'hidden hand,' and explains President Kennedy's plan to close the CIA, which is actually a part of British Intelligence set up for Queen Elizabeth I by the Jew Sir Francis Walsingham, and consequently an emanation of the strong long arm of "the City." It also explains how industry in the USSR was funded by US taxpayers through tax exempt foundations (See Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution). If you have 'one dollar' in your wallet, that is more than the 'combined income tax liability of GE, ExxonMobil, Citibank, and the Bank of America').
The paragraphs quoted above reveal this program of the alien 'hidden hand' that controls the US government "from [within] the White House," whose puppet president is selected by the CFR, is in the last stage of destroying the "American way of life" and the middle class and reducing citizens to serfs in a collectivized one world government, an exercise funded (in part) by $2.5 trillion stolen from Social Security contributions. I say "stolen," because US Treasury Notes are worth no more that their derivatives supported by delinquent mortgages and bankrupt corporations such as Freddie Mac and Fanny Mae which are $2 trillion in the red! When the US$ fails Mammonites "in the know" will scoop up T-Bills for cents in a million dollars, and make their fortune when Rome refinances the dollar with gold backing. This is where I see Brother Branham's revelation differs from the plans of the City disclosed by Brother Lindsey Williams in Newsletter 674
The foregoing also reveals that the US taxpayer is funding the largest and most powerful military in behalf of the 'hidden hand' not for national defense but national control and aggression against any and every nation that does not submit to NWO edicts. As prophesied in Revelation 13:11-18, the (once) Protestant United States in the image unto the beast.
"In all major regions of the world, the economic recession is deep-seated, resulting in mass unemployment, the collapse of state social programs and the impoverishment of millions of people. The meltdown of financial markets was the result of institutionalized fraud and financial manipulation. The economic crisis accompanied by a worldwide process of militarization is a 'war without borders' led by the US and its NATO allies".
War, Martial Law, and the Economic Crisis
February 26, 2011 The bailout measures of late 2008 may have consequences at least as grave for an open society as the response to 9/11 in 2001. . . It also seems clear that Congress was told of a threat of martial law, not itself threatened. It is still entirely appropriate to link such talk to the Army's rapid moves at the time to redefine its role as one of controlling the American people, not just protecting them. . . This new role for the Army is not wholly unprecedented. The US military had been training troops and police in "civil disturbance planning" for the last three decades. The master plan, Department of Defense Civil Disturbance Plan 55-2, or "Operation Garden Plot," was developed in 1968. . .
[Urban warfare has been the focus of Australian military training for decades, even in Rothschild Avenue, Sydney. There are towns in Queensland "that look like something out of Mogadishu with tunnels, real villagers and merchants" constructed exclusively for these exercises. Is this 'the City' against the Third World? US and other militaries train at Shoalwater Bay].
Then in April 2002, Defense officials implemented a plan for domestic US military operations by creating a new US Northern Command (CINC-USNORTHCOM) for the continental United States. . . In late September 2008, at the height of the financial meltdown, The Army Times announced the redeployment of an active Brigade Army Team from Iraq to America, in a new mission that "may become a permanent part of the active Army":
The 3rd Infantry Division's 1st Brigade Combat Team has spent 35 of the last 60 months in Iraq patrolling in full battle rattle, helping restore essential services and escorting supply convoys.
Now they're training for the same missionwith a twistat home. . . Beginning Oct. 1  for 12 months, the 1st BCT will be under the day-to-day control of US Army North, the Army service component of Northern Command, as an on-call federal response force for natural or manmade emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks. . . It is clear that there has been a sustained move in the direction of martial law preparations, a trend that has been as continuous as it has been unheralded. . . This quiet agglomeration of military power has not "just growed", like Topsy, through inadvertence. It shows sustained intention, even if no one has made a public case for it.

Comment: The former article explained how the global economic crisis was and remains government policy throughout the colonies of 'the City of London.' It confirms Brother Branham's prophetic warning, "When God sends forth a message and tells the people, and they don't receive it, then He withdraws His servant and sends His plagues: famine, death, spiritually speaking, physically also. You watch for a depression, brother. You think you've seen something; you just wait after while. You haven't seen nothing. You think you're dying for a good spiritual revival; you wait till after a bit. You just wait, long and cry to hear the Word of God. The Bible said so. "There'll be a famine in the last days," said the prophet, "and not for bread and water alone, but for hearing the true Word of God." But that voice will be quiet in the wilderness somewhere, hid away" (Jezebel Religion, p. 22:100; Revelation 6:8).
This article explains how military spending is being employed to replace American 'freedoms,' with martial law. It confirms the words of Woodrow Wilson in "The New Freedom" (p. 13-14): "Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, 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." And the observation of Illuminus president FDR: "If something happens in politics, you can bet it was planned that way".
Pakistani & Indian Newspapers: CIA Contractor Raymond Davis is a Terrorist
February 24, 2011 Raymond Davis, the CIA contractor in jail in Lahore facing murder charges for the execution-slayings of two young men believed to by Pakistani intelligence operatives, was actually involved in organizing terrorist activities in Pakistan . . . working on a plan to give credence to the American notion that Pakistan's nuclear weapons are not safe. For this purpose, he was setting up a group of the Taliban which would do his bidding. . . ISI 'fears there are hundreds of CIA contractors presently operating in Pakistan without the knowledge of the Pakistan government or the intelligence agency.'

Comment: US deception. No honest reports in the alien-controlled US media despite Davis' self-incrimination.
Nowadays mind control or brainwashing is euphemistically referred to as 'coercive persuasion,' or 'coercive influence.' This behavioral change technology causes one to learn and adopt a state of mind (ideology) that will psychologically restrain or constrain certain behaviour. Social learning or peaceful persuasion is conducted by environmental and interpersonal manipulation employed to suppress particular behaviors and to train others. Coercive persuasion can change attitudes without one's knowledge and volition, and create new "attitudes" wherewith they will willingly do things they may formerly have detested.
Coercive persuasion or thought reform is a coordinated system of graduated coercive influence and behavior control designed to deceptively and surreptitiously manipulate and influence individuals, usually in a group setting, in order for the originators of the program to profit in some way, normally financially, politically, or spiritually.
Ephesians 2:1-5, "You too were once dead through the trespasses and sins in which you once conducted yourselves in line with the ways of this world system, controlled by the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the children of disobedience. Among these we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, indulging the desires of body and mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God is rich in mercy, so that out of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christby grace you have been saved".
Satan is the prince of the power of the air through which audio, visual, verbal and tactile contact are transmitted to assault our ten senses, communicating propaganda, law, education, religion and entertainment, molding and directing our psyche to conform with and enact the thoughts of another.
Machiavelli (1469-1527) referred to mind manipulation when he said: "One of the great secrets of the day is to know how to take possession of popular prejudices and passions in such a way as to introduce a confusion of principles which makes impossible all understanding between those who speak the same language and have the same interests".
This is how 'the City' is transforming the potential energy of the easily-manipulated people of Tunis, Egypt, Libya and other nations of North Africa and the Greater Middle East into kinetic energy to overthrow their governments and bring the people and the natural resources of those nations under submission to the banksters of international Jewry and their Judaeo-Roman Catholic church (Daniel 8:23-27; 11:40). And in a very real way, this is our situation in the West: despite the obvious charlatans and banksters behind the scam, neither lawmakers nor electors will say whether the greenhouse effect, global warming, global cooling, climate change, carbon trading, carbon tax or anthropologic atmospheric carbonwhich constitutes just 0.035% of gasses in the airis a possible problem or a confidence trick.
This is reminiscent of the so-called holocaust of six million Jews by Germany in World War I, the genocide of six million between the wars by the Jewish government of the USSR, exterminating world Jewry, the so-called holocaust of six million non-existent Jews in World War II, and Jewish statistics demonstrating that in 1948 there were more Jews than at any period in history! Now media-led governments spend billions to support the CO2 BIG LIE and citizens who dare doubt this hoax are labeled "climate change deniers" and skeptics.
Bertrand Russell wrote: "It may be hoped that in time anybody will be able to persuade anybody of anything, if he can catch the patient young and is provided by the State with money and equipment. This subject will make great strides when it is taken up by scientists under a scientific dictatorship. . . Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rightly confined to the governing class and the populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated ... education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they will be incapable ... of thinking or acting otherwise than their schoolmasters would have wished" (The Impact of Science on Society, 1976. See Brain Wash, Why Johnny Can't Think, and Globalism Brainwash, by Alan Gourley).
"And knoweth it not," that day has arrived.
Edward L. Bernays, the father of "Public Relations" and nephew of the infamous Sigmund Freud (author of a discredited system of psychoanalysis), wrote: "The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our government. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is the logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized" (Propaganda, 1928). This propaganda expert guided the introduction of the dubious forced fluoride medication, beginning in the USA in 1951 and spread worldwide.
Since the revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963 we know that Death, the rider of the pale horse of the Fourth Seal which opened in 1906 and will continue to the close of our dispensation, is Satan, who is prophesied to kill the redeemable persons of earth with war, famine, disease, and scheming brutal, bestial men whom Bernays asserts and history confirms, "constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our government" (Revelation 6:8).
The "intelligent manipulators" have outlawed the incandescent light bulb and mandated dangerous and expensive compact fluorescent lights that are so dim my 96 year-young girlfriend asks me to, "turn on the dark." The green environmentalist hypocrites have introduced tons of toxic mercury into the environment each year. Mercury vaporizes at room temperature and is well absorbed through inhalation, passing through the alveoli in the lungs and directly into the blood stream and red blood cells; poisoning can occur through vapor inhalation, ingestion, or absorption through the skin.
Citizens lobotomized by brainwashing submitted to the replacement of safe leaded fuel with carcinogenic unleaded petrol, their governments next subsidized bio-fuel, diverting farms from food production, generating inflation that is exacerbated by commodity trading to create food riots and the overthrow of governments in North Africa and the Middle East. Already oil prices have begun to climb toward the pre-planned US$200/barrel, yet despite the "Peak Oil" hoax, the Sydney basin is replete with capped wells and the United States' known reserves are eight times greater than the known reserves of all other nations combined.
William Branham (1909-1963) was the prophet who restored the apostolic faith (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11), finished the mystery of God (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7), and called His people into the unity of the faith (Matthew 25:6; Ephesians 4:13; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:4) for the manifestation of the sons of God and the translation (Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:52). He prophesied, "The world is going insane." And this is confirmed by the dishonesty and forsaken common sense reported above and although, "they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced, and mourn," Pope Benedict XVI has generously absolved the Jews for killing Jesus.
Prior to his Message the mind of each of us had been conditioned by the "intelligent manipulators" who "constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our government" for "this is the logical result of the way in which our [Hegelian sham] democratic society is organized." The Prophet said, "Democracy will never work. Democracy's rotten to the bone . . . it's become all sails and no anchor." And many of us cling to falsehoods implanted by misguided teachers and ministers unconsciously brainwashed by the racial supremacists whose objective is global hegemony. Their oldest trick is the curse of Genesis 12:1-3:
"After the death of Abram's father, the Lord told Abram. Go from your land and your kindred to a land that I will show you, and I will make you a great nation. I will bless you and make your name famous and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you, and in you shall all the kindred of the earth be blessed".
God was speaking to Abram alone, not to Israel as there was then no such nation, nor to the Jews, and there has never been a "Jewish" nation. Abram was an Iraqi Gentile whose offspring the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic Edomites of Cain's lineage, now known as Jews whose blessing was world dominion, have been exterminating since Ambassador April Glaspie, one of the most evil women in history, deceived his contemporary kinsman Saddam Hussein to provide President George I with a pretext to invade Iraq (Genesis 27:39-41; Matthew 23:33-35).
In Galatians 3:5-8, 26-29 Paul affirms God's Covenant with Abram, later Abraham, was made to him as an uncircumcised Gentile and a man of faith: "Does He who endued you with the Spirit and works miracles among you do so by works of the Law or by faith in the Message? Even as Abraham had faith in God and it was credited to him for righteousness. So it is men of faith who are the children of Abraham, [not Jews, or even genuine Israelites (Romans 9:6)]. And in anticipation that God would justify the Gentiles through faith, Scripture foretold the Gospel to Abraham in the promise, "In you will all [Adamic] nations be blessed. . ." By your faith in Christ Jesus you are all the sons of God. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Judahite nor Gentile, there is neither slave nor freeman, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one [in eternal Life] in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ's, [then by the baptism with the Holy Ghost which is the new birth], you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise".
In Romans 4:8-17, 23-25 Paul further elaborates on the justification of and Covenant with Abraham who was never an Israelite or a Jew: "Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin. Does this blessedness apply only to the circumcised, or to the uncircumcised as well? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness. How then was it reckoned? was it before or after he was circumcised? Not after, but before he was circumcised. And he received the sign of circumcision as a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had while he was uncircumcised: so that he might be the father of all uncircumcised believers that to them righteousness might be imputed, and likewise the father of the circumcised who are not merely circumcised but walk in the steps of that faith our father Abraham had when he was still uncircumcised."
"For the promise to Abraham and his seed that he should be the heir of the world, was not because Abraham obeyed the Law but through the righteousness of faith; for if followers of the Law are the inheritors, then faith is futile and the promise is abrogated because the Law brings wrath: but where there is no Law there is no transgression."
"For this reason the blessings are given to us by faith, so that the promise may rest upon grace to all his descendants; not only to the followers of the Law, but also to those who share Abraham's faith; who is thus father of us all, as it is written, I have made you the father of many nations, all this in the Presence of God, in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead, and calls into existence things that have no being. In hope he believed even when biologically hope was gone, that he might become the father of many nations, as he had been told, "So shall your seed be. . ." But the words, "It was accounted to him" were not written for him alone, but for us as well, to whom it will be accounted as believers in Him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, who was put to death for our offences, and raised again for our justification".
Genesis 17:7, "And I will establish My covenant between Me and you, and your descendants in their successive generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be a God to you, and to your descendants after you".
Hebrews 6:13-18, "For when God made His promise to Abraham, He had swore by Himself, since He could swear by none greater, saying: I certainly will bless you with blessings and multiply you abundantly. And after patient waiting, he obtained what had been promised. Men indeed swear by one greater than themselves, and in all their disputes an oath for confirmation is the end of all controversy. In this way God, in His desire to more abundantly show the heirs of the promise the immutability of His purpose, guaranteed it with an oath: so that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge in Him may have strong encouragement to seize the hope that is placed before us".
The Gentile Covenant of promise God made with the Abraham and His Seed preceded the Covenant "of sin and death" He made with Israel "because of trespasses." And the Abrahamic Covenant was not between God, Abraham and natural Israel, but with Abraham and His Seed, Jesus Messiah who is the true overcoming Israel and Prince with God of whom Jacob was a type (Romans 8:2; Isaiah 49). Are you following what the Bible is teaching?
Galatians 3:16-19: "Now the promises made were to Abraham and his Seed. It does not say, "And to offsprings" plural, but "And to your Seed" singular, which is Christ. The point is the Abrahamic Covenant that was confirmed before by God in Christ cannot be annulled by the Old Covenant or Law that came four hundred and thirty years later, as if it could invalidate and make God's promise of no effect. For if the inheritance is by the Law, then it is no longer by promise: but God gave it to Abraham through a promise, while the Law was added because of transgressions, until the Offspring [singular] should come to whom the promise was made. . ." And the Offspring was Messiah, not the nation of Israel, and certainly not Jewry who regard themselves as the Messiah when they have no Messiah, as Jesus is the last Adam, and not the last Cain.
The Old Testament Law was a temporary Covenant of chastisement and discipline imposed upon Israel because of their unbelief in God's revealed Word. Its validity lasted from mount Sinai until Messiah. Luke 16:16, "The Law and the prophets were until John: since that time the Kingdom of God is preached, and every man presses into it". Our Gentile New Covenant both predates and supercedes the Old Covenant which God treats "as obsolete, decayed and ready to be put aside forever" (Hebrews 8:13).
The statement is commonly made, even by those who should know better, that we Christians owe a debt to the Jews, for we got our Bible and our religion from them. While many people have been deceived into believing this, it is completely false. In part the error comes from the complete confusion in the minds of nearly all people as to what they mean by Jew.
First let's consider the claim we got our Bible and our religion from the Jews, as meaning Jews by religion. It is certain we didn't get the New Testament from them, for the Jewish religion is condemned throughout the New Testament. But did we get the Old Testament from them? No, for several reasons: in the first place, no Jew by religion existed before the return from the Babylonian captivity, shortly after 536BC. Their great historian Josephus writes, "So the Jews prepared for the work. Jew is the name they are called by from the day that they came up from Babylon." The only Old Testament books that were written after the return from Babylon are, Kings, Chronicles, Ezra and Nehemiah (all of them historical, rather than doctrinal), Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi. In none of these do the Jews receive anything but rebuke for their wickedness and their apostasy from the religion of the Old Testament. The late Rabbi Stephen F. Wise, formerly the Chief Rabbi of the United States said, "The return from Babylon and the introduction of the Babylonian Talmud mark the end of Hebrewism and the beginning of Judaism."
The learned Rabbi was correct in distinguishing the true religion of the Old Testament as Hebrewism for it was the religion of the real Hebrews, who were not Jews at all. Judaism, the religion of the Jews, is as the learned Rabbi says, based upon the Babylonian Talmud, which contains the supposed oral law. It was never reduced to writing as part of the Bible. This oral law gradually gained greater force among the Jews than the written law in the Bible, with which it often conflicted in Jesus' day, the Babylonian Talmud was known as the Tradition of the Elders.
This is why Jesus told the Jews: "Well has Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honour Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. Howbeit, in vain do they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandments of God that you may keep your own tradition, you make the Word of God of no effect through your tradition which you have delivered" (Mark 7:6-13). "You do err, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God" (Matthew 22:29).
"Woe unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, Hypocrites! for you pay tithes of mint, anise and cumin and have omitted the weightier matters of the Law, judgment, mercy and faith" (Matthew 23:23).
This was the religion of the Jews. As the learned Rabbi Stephen F. Wise said, Judaism was distinguished from Hebrewism, the real religion of the Old Testament. Certainly Christianity took nothing from any Jewish religion for we have never taken any part of Christianity from the Talmud (Bertrand L. Comparet, The Bible is not a Jewish Book).
Rabbi Stephen Wise spoke a subtle truth that flies over the heads of most professing Christians who would not realize the antithesis between Hebrewism, the faith of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Moses, Jesus Messiah and the Prophets, and Judaism which is the Babylonian cult of Pharisaism whose lewd holy book, the Talmud, is the antithesis to Moses and the Prophets. Like the Canaanite religion it is full of bloodshed and debauchery and is centered on sex.
Another subtle truth is found in the 1980 Jewish Almanac under the heading "A Brief History of the Terms for Jew" (p. 3): "Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an Ancient Israelite a 'Jew' or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew." Unlike the prophet Paul (Philippians 3:5), citizens of the modern state of Israel call themselves "Israelis" as they are not Israelites or Hebrews, nor are they a Semitic people.
Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28 specify the terms of the Mosaic Covenant with its blessings for obedience and curses for disobedience. Leviticus 18:26-30, "You shall keep My statutes and My ordinances, and neither any of your own nation nor any stranger that sojourns among you shall practice those abominations which the inhabitants of the land practiced before you, and rendered the country unclean. Beware then, lest in like manner, it vomit you also out, if you defile it, as it vomited out the nation that was before you. Whoever commits any of these offenses shall perish from the midst of his people. Keep My commandments. Do not practice what they have done before you, and be not defiled therein. I am the Lord your God." (See also: Numbers 14:23; Deuteronomy 4:25-27; 6:18; 7:12; 30; Ezekiel 13:9; Jeremiah 7:15; 29:13-14).
By their constant murmuring in unbelief Israel rejected the grace of Abraham's Covenant and God marched them to Sinai where He placed them under the curse of the Law (Exodus 16). While Moses was in the mount with the invisible God Israel made a visible god in the form of a calf; God refused to dwell among them so "Moses pitched the Tabernacle without, far off from the camp" (Exodus 32-33). At Kadesh-Barnea they committed the unforgivable sin and the adult Israelites were blotted from the Book of Life (Numbers 13-14). Israel's sins were so persistent that prior to entering Canaan the Lord prophesied, after Moses' death "this people will rise up, and go a-whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land where they go to settle, and will forsake Me, and break My Covenant" (Deuteronomy 31:14-21). This they did for four hundred years under the judges, and God chastised them under the hand of their enemies.
Throughout the following four centuries Israel was ruled by kings, almost every one of whom "did evil in the sight of the Lord, and followed the sins of his father, with which he made Israel to sin, and so the anger of the Lord was kindled against them" (I Kings 15:34). All nineteen kings of Israel were said to be evil, while in the ninth century BC, Elijah found only 7,000 Northerners who had not bowed the knee to Baal (I Kings 19:18). Of Judah's twenty kings, only three were good and her priests neglected the Mosaic Law for centuries but during Temple repairs in the reign of Josiah (641-609BC) what was possibly Moses' original autographed Pentateuch was discovered beside the Ark within the veil (Deuteronomy 31:9, 26; II Chronicles 34:14).
When the Northern Kingdom adopted trinitarianism it was destroyed and her citizens transported to Assyria; the Southern Kingdom was exiled for the same sin and the Judeans returned from captivity under Ezra and Nehemiah with Babylonian learning that denominated as Pharisaism which became Talmudism, Medieval Rabbinism, Modern Rabbinism, and Judaism. "The Pharisees are important for two reasons. First, the Gospels portray them as one of the principle opposition groups to Jesus. Second, Judaism as we know it generally traces its roots back to the Pharisees" (Jacob Neusner, Judaism in the Beginning of Christianity (Philadelphia: Fortress Press 1984), p.45).
God called Israel, "a stiff-necked people" (Exodus 32:9) and prophesied He would revoke the Mosaic Covenant and open the blessings of Abraham to Israel and to all nations. Jeremiah 31:22-32 foretold the coming of Messiah, born of a woman, with blessings and redemption, "But every one shall die for his own iniquity. . . Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a New Covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: not according to the Covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; My covenant which they broke, although I was an husband over them, says the Lord".
Israel's history is replete with paganism and unbelief, and true to form they murdered Messiah when He came because he threatened denominational legitimacy, hereby they refused God's New Covenant. Acts 7:51-53, "You stiff-necked people, uncircumcised in heart and ears, you always resist the Holy Spirit. As your fathers did, so do you. Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? And they killed those who announced beforehand the coming of the Righteous One, whom you have now betrayed and murdered, you who received the Law as delivered by angels and did not keep it".
As if to confirm "The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses," a reader has written: "I have one question I would like for you to comment on. Do you think that the Sabbath day still applies today? If the fourth commandment doesn't apply, then are you suggesting that the other nine don't either. If we are guilty of breaking one commandment, are we not guilty of breaking them all? Please respond".
Paul has already provided the response in answer to Jeremiah's prophecy (above):
II Corinthians 3:6-15 "Christ has qualified us to be ministers of the New Testament, not of written Law but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit makes alive. Yet if the ministry of death, engraved in letters of stone, was inaugurated with such splendour that the Israelites were not able to gaze intently at the face of Moses because of the radiance of his face, which after all faded away: how much more glorious must be the ministration of the Spirit? If there is glory in the administration that declares condemnation, how infinitely more glory there must be in the ministration that declares righteousness. In view of this surpassing glory, what was once glorious retains no glory at all. For if what passed had its splendour, how much more that which is permanent! Possessed of such hope we speak without reserve, not as Moses did, who put a veil over his face to keep the children of Israel from gazing at the end of something that was fading away. But their minds were dulled. To this present day, when the Old Testament is read that same veil remains, not lifted because only through Christ is it removed. Until now, whenever Moses is read, the veil lies over their hearts".
Colossians 2:14-15 "Blotting out the handwriting of the decree that was against us, which was contrary to us. He has taken the same out of the way, fastening it to the cross: and despoiling the principalities and powers, He has exposed them confidently in open show, triumphing over them in Himself".
Ephesians 2:15 "Making void the Law of commandments contained in decrees; that He might make the two in Himself into one new man, making peace".
Hebrews 7:18 "There is indeed a setting aside of the former commandment, because of its weakness and uselessness".
Hebrews 8:1-13 Now what we are saying is this: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of Majesty in heaven, as a minister in the sanctuary of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, not man. For every high priest is appointed to offer gifts and sacrifices: so this One must have something to offer. Now if He were still on earth, He would not be a priest at all, for here they have gifts prescribed by the Law, that serve as a copy and shadow of the heavenly sanctuary, as Moses was instructed when he was about to build the Tabernacle: See that you make everything according to the pattern that was shown you on the mount."
"But Christ has obtained a ministry which is as much more excellent as the Covenant He mediates is better, enacted as it is on better promises. For if that first Covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion for a second. But finding fault with it, He says, The days are coming, when I will establish a New Testament with the house of Israel, and the house of Judah, not like the Testament I made with their fathers the day I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt: because they did not remain faithful to My Covenant: so I paid no heed to them, says the Lord. This is the Testament which I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will fix My laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. No longer will each man teach his neighbour and every man his brother, saying, "Know the Lord," for they shall all know Me from the least to the greatest of them (Isaiah 54:13; John 6:44-45). For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more."
"In speaking of a New Covenant, He has made the first out of date, and what is antiquated and obsolete is ready to vanish".
Hebrews 10:9 "Then He added: "Here I have come to do Your will, O God": He abolishes the first Covenant, that He may establish the second".
Our reader further enquired, "Do you worship on the day of the sun"?
Speaking of His first Bible, "God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for [prophetical] signs, and for [cyclical] seasons [or Moonths] (Psalm 104:19), and for days, and years [or appointed times of assembly]" (Genesis 1:14; Ephesians 1:10). Consequently the days of the week were named after the Sun and the Moon and the five known planets, which, as the Serpent's seed overspread earth and the Son's of God apostatized, were in turn named after the pagan gods impersonating God's Witness in the Stars. Thus we have the Sun's-day, the Moon's-day, MarsTiu's-day, MercuryWoden's-day, JupiterThor's-day, VenusFreya's-day, and SaturnSaturn's-day.
This sincere Brother believes we Christians should mandate a "National Saturn's-day Law (Jeremiah 10:2-3)? The sabbath day was commanded Israel under the Old Covenant and it can only be observed in the Land of the Covenant outside whose borders the Covenant is of no effect. It was a sabbath for the body and mortal spirit thus Israel is that nation's one and only place of rest. But the Lord told Israel this earth is His place of judgment and not the place of rest. His place of rest is in the heart of the man who is poor and of a contrite spirit, and who reverences His Word (Psalm 8:1-3; Isaiah 66:1-2; I Corinthians 1:18-31). We have read in Jeremiah 31:31-33 how God would void His Covenant of condemnation with Israel as He did 2,000 years ago, and write a New Covenant in the hearts of His elect in ALL nations according to His promise to Abraham.
In Matthew 11:25-30, Jesus said, "I thank you, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent, and revealed them to babes (Isaiah 66:1-2). . . Come to Me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you sabbath. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart (Isaiah 66:1-2): and you shall find sabbath for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light".
I John 3:21-24, "Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence before God, and we receive from Him whatever we ask, because we keep His commandments, and do what pleases Him. And His Commandment is that we place our faith in the Name of His Son Jesus Christ and that we love one another as He commanded us. All who keep His commandments abide in Him, and He in them. We know that He abides in us, by the indwelling Spirit He has given us".
Clearly the one Place of sabbath today is IN Messiah. We enter that Place by living a clear revelation of the present Truthwhat Jesus is doing now. We enter by the baptism with the Holy Spirit, which is the new birth, and our sabbath is twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. It is blasphemy for those who claim to be Christians to try to observe the Law (which was a curse upon Israel and has NEVER been kept) because they are denying the resurrection and the coming of the Holy Spirit to regenerate men's souls.
In Isaiah 42:21 God promised He would MAGNIFY the Law, and Jesus stated He did so even before Calvary (Matthew 5:17-48; 19:3-30). In Hebrews 4:8-10 Paul explains that had Joshua given Israel the rest of God the prophet David in Psalm 95:11 would not have spoken of another, future sabbath, which he called the rest of God. "Consequently there is a sabbath reserved for God's elect; for one who enters into His rest, also rests from his works, as God did on the seventh day from all His work which He created to make." We are still living in the sixth day, the seventh day will be the millennium when "the wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat" (Isaiah 64:25).
When Judaising Pharisees who "knew how to take possession of popular prejudices and passions in such a way as to introduce a confusion of principles" sought to impose the "Law of sin and death" upon Gentile converts, the apostles and elders of the early church held council in Jerusalem. Peter declared, "Why are you trying to correct God by burdening the Gentiles with a yoke which neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear? Don't you believe that we are all saved through the grace of Jesus Messiah as they are"? So it was resolved by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, "To lay no greater burden of the Law than to abstain from the pollution of idolatry, from strangled animals, from blood, and from fornication" (Acts 15:1-29). And the Gentile converts were advised.
In Galatians 3:23 4:11 Paul explains, "Before faith came we were imprisoned under the Law, awaiting in custody until faith should be revealed. So that the Law was our schoolmaster until Christ to give us right standing with God through our faith. But now that faith has come we are no longer under a schoolmaster. . . And before you Gentiles knew God, you were slaves to gods that did not even exist. But now when you have come to know God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements to which you want to be enslaved all over again? You carefully observe days, new moons, festivals, and sabbatical years. I fear for you, lest I have laboured in vain and you are not God's elect after all, as I see no evidence of revelation."
Whereas these Gentile converts had been slaves to the rudiments in regard to heathenism; now they were desiring to enslave themselves again to the rudiments, and to commence them anew in the form of Judaism! Do you holier-than thou sabbath day observing so-called Christians see this? Like the self-styled non-Semitic Jews you scrupulously observe the shadows and types Israel's holy days and feasts which the Lord is MAGNIFYING into the promised substance.
Paul repeats this admonition to the Gentile converts of Colosse, "Beware of anyone stealing away your faith and joy through philosophy and empty deceit, according to wrong and shallow answers built on human thoughts and traditions, and not according to Christ. For in Him dwells all the fullness of God in a human body, and in union with Him who is the Head of all rule and authority you have come to fullness of Life."
"When you came to Christ you were circumcised is heart and ears without hands by the baptism of the Holy Spirit, cleansing your soul from sins and carnal desires. In this baptism your old worldly nature died with Him and you were also raised with Him in new Life through faith in the working of God who raised Him from the dead. And you who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh God made alive together with Him, as He forgave us all of our trespasses; having canceled the written code proven against us with its decrees we had not obeyed, He took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross. Having disarmed the rulers and authorities He publicly exposed them to disgrace as He triumphed over them on the cross".
If you accept this liberty by faith, you are FREE! You are FREE! Please do not hastily pass over these words; read them carefully and thank God that by His grace you possess this revelation, for there are millions of sincere men and women who love our Lord Jesus but remain imprisoned by Israelite traditions and Jewish fables that prevent them from being born-again.
"Therefore let no one be your judge in regard to eating and drinking, or the observance of Jewish festivals, or a new Moon, or sabbath which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is Christ Himself. Let no one who indulges in assumed humility and worship of messengers, taking his stand on visions, puffed up without reason by his sensuous imagination declare you lost. . ." (Colossians 2:8-23).
Someone party to the dual citizens and traitors who demolished the World Trade Center claims to have seen a vision in which Osama bin Laden attacked the twin towers and had the chutzpah to publish his knowledge of the conspiracy in a book before the event. On this basis this lying prophet is making money seeking prayer for the perpetrators. But whose folly is manifest: neither the CIA's Osama bin Laden nor any Muslim was involved in 9/11. Vice President Dick Cheney had been plotting the conquest of Iraq since the late '80s when he was Secretary of Defense in George I's Administration, so it comes as no surprise that scores of Hollywood entities created books, movies and products announcing 9/11 at least as far back as 1995.
With the prescience of "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion" even two dimensional Homer Simpson with no brain foretold 9/11 on September 21, 1997 in "The City of New York vs Homer Simpson"; 9/11 was portrayed on March 4, 2001 in the pilot of a spinoff from the X-Files called, "The Lone Gunman"; and "Oil Storm," a documentary-style movie portrayed "Katrina" two months before the event on March 5, 2005 (youtube.com). The movie "Knowing" released on March 20, 2009, portrayed the April 20, 2010 explosion on BP's Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico. This is Cabala! The Babylonian Talmud instructs Judaics to employ subterfuge against Gentiles (Baba Kamma 113a). By announcing events ahead of time they believe with clear conscience they have warned their victims.
For some months a sincere man who attends Harold Camping's Seventh Day Adventist church has been mailing our Church warning this year's second Passover will mark the close of the Gentile dispensation three days after FEMA's New Madrid Fault Level Exercise. He believes the Bride of Christ will go through the tribulation. This fine man who is obviously not born-again is a victim of coercive persuasion by his associated with a cult of false prophets. His group is generating well-intentioned publicity as Satan's dupes for unscriptural speculation; when these Seventh Day Adventists experience yet another "Great Disappointment" this May, it will be used to lead many outside the group to the Judaeo-Roman church.
They follow the late Mrs. Ellen White, another false prophet who stood on visions, real and imagined. When I pastored a small church in the early 1980s I picked up what turned out to be a Seventh Day Adventist magazine which contained questions followed by answers from Mrs. White's writings and visions. Like visionaries and mediums, it seems she was able to contact the fourth dimension. I forget the particulars she saw some visions in common with Brother Branham, but her interpretations were contrary to the written Word of God and His vindicated prophet. Jehovah's Witnesses (so-called) are an offshoot of the Adventists, and equally deceived by "those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society".
Judaisers, ravenous wolves have "crept in unawares," to prey upon nominal Christians whose deluded pastors without the Spirit of Christ have not separated the synagogue of Satan from the offspring of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob "who are Israelites; to whom pertains the adoption, and the glory, and the Covenants, and the giving of the Law, and the service of God, and the promises; whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever" (Romans 9:4-5).
Pretending to be Christians they seek money to fund malicious propaganda whose true objective is to rally Christendom to the side of political Zionism against political Islam in the long-planned World War III, which indicates the imminent end of the Gentile dispensation, but otherwise is of no concern to Christians. We have THUS SAITH THE LORD from Daniel and Jesus that Jerusalem and Israel will remain under non-Israelite dominion, as they are at this day, to the consummation of life on earth (Isaiah 6:10-13; 28:22; Daniel 9:27; 12:7; Malachi 1:3-4; Matthew 23:38-39; Luke 21:24). Christians are "the City of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem . . . the general assembly of the firstborn which are written in heaven . . . the souls of just men made perfect" (Hebrews 12:22-24). We are "the Holy City, new Jerusalem . . . [that will one day soon] come down from God out of heaven, prepared as a Bride adorned for her husband" (Revelation 20:2). We care not for "Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage [to sin] with her children," and "Spiritually-speaking, is as Sodom and Egypt" (Revelation 11:8; Galatians 4:25)?
Consistent with Genesis 3:15 the message of false prophets is enmity against God and the children of the first Adam and also the last Adam. Paul described them as "Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good . . . men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith" (II Timothy 3:4, 8). They claim "Islamic terrorists flew fuel-laden airplanes into the World Trade Center," a foolish lie few New Yorkers believe. The whole world knows it is the amoral colleagues of these people who were behind this cowardly false flag black op, which was planned to enable the apostate once Christian colonies of their 'City of London' to continue murdering their way to establish Lucifer's totalitarian one world government.
The grubby life of such bold deceivers, and the dastardly aggression of their actions demonstrate the apostasy of the Gentile churches, vindicating Revelation 3:17-20, and signifying the imminent close of the Gentile dispensation with the casting down of Satan and his revelation as "that man of sin, the son of perdition" (Romans 11:32; Isaiah 14:12-14; II Thessalonians 2:2-12; Revelation 12:9; 13:1-10).
The Gentile denominations must end in apostasy before the Lord can turn back to Israel to fulfill the prophecy of Daniel's Seventieth Week, which will be "the time of Jacob's trouble" in which Israel will be redeemed. nl675.htm
