"I will put enmity between . . . thy seed and the seed of the woman . . ." Genesis 3:15 The tenth chapter of Genesis is the oldest Table of Nations in existence, it is a completely authentic statement of how the present world population originated and spread after the Flood in three families headed by Shem, Ham and Japheth (Genesis 10:32), with a sub-group descended from Ham through Canaan vastly more numerous than these three together. Please follow me in your own Bibles.
". . . and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity . . ." Luke 21:25
Let's commence by paraphrasing Genesis 9:18-27, "The sons of Noah that went forth out of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Noah is NOT the father of Canaan, and Canaan was NOT conceived on the ark: and of these FOUR was the whole earth overspread".
This is how Canaan was conceived: Noah and his wife became drunk, and Ham saw the nakedness of his father's beautiful wife (Leviticus 18:8). Once Noah was sober, he understood what Ham had done, and cursed him in the offspring of the act.
So not all of Ham's descendants are involved in the curse, only Canaan and his descendants. According to many of the ancient scholars, the wife who accompanied Noah in the ark was Naamah, the last-named in the genealogy of Cain. It was through her that the Serpent's seed lineage continued on this side of the Flood. Hence certain races reckon their descent from the mother or matriarch (Serpent's Seed, 27:197-198).
Noah's "secret" explains his drunken state at this time of the month. And why he fathered no children after the Flood. Naamah was not the mother of Noah's three sons.
Ham's curse fell upon Canaan, his illegitimate first-born son. Noah could not abort his wife's birth for he knew "if slaying Cain brought a sevenfold vengeance, truly slaying Canaan might bring a seventy times sevenfold punishment" as Lamech had boasted (Genesis 4:15; 22-24). So Noah cursed Canaan because he was "cherem".
Like the Serpent's seed God had destroyed in the Flood, and those He would instruct Moses and the children of Israel to destroy when encountered in the Promised Land, Canaan was "dedicated to destruction for the glory of the Lord". Even if he were not Serpent's seed, as the fruit of incest or adultery, Canaan could never receive the birthright of Ham, for a bastard cannot enter the congregation of the Lord (which signifies the birthright, Promise of election, or covenant of God)not even after ten generations, which is a euphemism for "forever" (i.e., "never"Deuteronomy 23:3).
Being a prophet, Noah foresaw the future and he cursed Canaan to be a "servant of servants", a term meaning "excrement" or the lowest of the low, as God had cursed his forefather, the serpent. Like Cain, Canaan would bear the mark of his vicarious father, Lucifer, whose children are intent on usurping the dominion God gave Adam and his kin over this world. By this mark of worldly wisdom they overran the seed of Adam, bringing God's wrath in the Flood.
Jesus said these same conditions would repeat in OUR day (Matthew 24:37-38). The sons of Cain have openly declared the end of the white race. They HATE Adam's race. Dr. Israel Shahak proves in his latest book, "Jewish Fundamentalism in Israel," co-authored by Norton Mezvinsky, that all orthodox Israelis agree that Christian churches in the "Holy Land" must be destroyed and all Gentiles expelled. The only disagreement is on the timing. Rabbi Yoseph, one of the "most important Haredi rabbis . . . publicly declared the doctrine that Jews, when sufficiently powerful, have a religious obligation to expel all non-Jews from the country and destroy all Christian churches" (p. 20).
George Orwell was right!
Their plan is to interbreed them "as it was in the days of Noah". And "as it was in the days of Noah" the sons of Cain are trying to build Satan's Eden here on earth without the Blood sacrifice. They control the nations through the UN and their financial power.
Here's what Brother Branham said, "Here comes the seed of the serpent. Now, remember, there'll be enmity, war between them. The seed of the serpent comes along, and what does it produce? . . . " The seed of the serpent produced Cain. Cain went to the land of Nod, produced giants, and then they came to the land of Noah. They were smart, educated, intelligent people. Is that right? They were builders, inventors, scientists: Not through the seed of the righteous, but through the seed of Satan, the serpent. They were such men as scientists, builders, and great men, educators; the Scripture says so. They worked brass; they worked iron; they worked metals. They invented things. They tempered different metals, and built houses, and so forth. The Scripture says so. And they were scoffers at the seed of the woman: Noah, the righteous. Is that right?"
"Let's follow them a little farther. Then we get them up to the ark. Everything was destroyed: got in such a conglomeration of sin. And they took the rule, and smartest and intelligent, till God looked down, there wasn't very many left, so He just took Noah and his family in the ark and rained the water down, and destroyed the whole thing: took Enoch up beforehand. Is that right? There was all the seed, ALMOST all the seed. But He has a PURPOSE to be fulfilled" (Serpent's Seed, 27:1-2).
Parentage determines not only individual but also national character. This explains the necessity of our second birth from Above. Brother Branham said each country has a "national spirit" (Kinsman Redeemer, 16:98). What Canaan became from his MOTHER and father, the Canaanites became in their nations.
As with the Lot's bastard sons by his own daughters, Moab and Ben-ammi, the true nature of the people was thought to have been expressed once and for all in their birth and early conduct. Hence Isaiah and Ezekiel prophesied their end, as did Moses.
Deuteronomy 23:2-3, "A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even after ten generations. An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter the congregation of the Lord; even after ten generations they shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord forever."
The Ammonites and Moabites (Genesis 19:31-38) and David's illegitimate first child by Bathsheba (II Samuel 11:26-12:23), illustrate this Scripture, and type the denominations illegitimately born of Roman creed contrary to the Word. Spiritual adultery. They can never enter into the congregation of the Lord which is the election, for the sins of Rome are visited upon her (once) Protestant daughters (Exodus 20:4-5).
The forbidden degrees of kinship are laid down in Leviticus 18 and 20. The term "bastard" applies to one born through incest or adultery rather than children born out of wedlock.
Under the Law, the token of the Covenant was circumcision. A bastard such as Moab or Ben-ammi, even in the righteous line of Lot, would not be circumcised by the priest, permitted to marry an Israelite woman, or be buried with his people. Therefore he was excluded from the Covenant, meaning the election. Steven's insult, "You uncircumcised in heart and ears" so inflamed the high priest, he had him stoned to death. Today, such a bastard might be "saved" but he cannot be born-again.
The "congregation" or assembly of the Lord did NOT embrace all who lived within the Israelite community; only the Covenanted people, the ekklesia or separated ones. Resident aliens, non-Hebrew slaves, and foreign mercenaries, etc., were excluded. The way by which the sacred community is defined in Deuteronomy 23:1-8 is by the kinds of people excluded. Likewise the elect Church does not include the make-believer and unbeliever within their congregation (Acts 3:23; Hebrews 2:12; 12:23; Revelation 18:4).
The general meaning of these words in Deuteronomy 23:1-3 is that the persons here designated should not be incorporated with Israel as to partake of their civil or Covenant privileges. If we look at Revelation 11:1-2 and Zechariah 12:11-14, we see God will separate the elect of Israel from their non-elect kinsmen and from the "Jew" exactly as He separates the elect Church from the non-elect (Matthew 25:6).
"Ten" signifies an indefinitely large number (as in Genesis 31:7; Psalm 3:6; Daniel 7:10; Revelation 5:11, etc.,). The phrase "Tenth generation" means NEVER, not the remotest descendants.
We begin to understand why Cain and his children, including Canaan and his descendants, were doubly cursed: in conception and in their lineage. "Twice dead, plucked up by the roots" (Jude 11-12).
God separated Shem as His portion, to be the holy nation, interceding for the Gentiles of Japheth and Ham by reflecting the Light of God through their lives, that we might become jealous for the blessings of righteousness, and be converted.
From the beginning, the Bible is the story of God separating the sacred from the profane. Genesis 4:3-8, "At spring time, Cain brought to the Lord an offering of the fruit of the ground. And Abel brought the best of the firstlings of his flock. And the Lord accepted Abel and his offering but rejected Cain and his offering. And Cain was dejected and furious, and his face grew dark with rage. Why are you angry? asked the Lord. And why do you look so crestfallen? If you do well you will be accepted; and if you fail to present the faith (in the form of an appropriate sacrifice), it will indicate your unbelief. And that you must overcome, for the wages of sin (or unbelief) is death."
"Cain questioned his step-brother Abel concerning the revelation. Reluctantly, Abel disclosed the revelation of the original sin, and how Cain was neither Adam's son nor entitled to the birthright. To hide this truth, Cain enticed Abel into the field, and slew him, thereby hoping to retain his status as Adam's firstborn."
At no time did Cain possess the birthright or have any inheritance in Adam's estate. His name was never on the Book of Life, and he has no Kinsman Redeemer.
Genesis 4:11-14, "And now you are cursed from the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive your half-brother's blood from your hand; When you till the soil, it shall no longer yield its fertility. Henceforth you shall be a fugitive and a wanderer in the earth."
"And Cain said to the Lord, My depravity is more than I can bear. Behold, You have driven me out this day from the presence of the earth; and from Your Presence shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that finds me shall slay me."
"Eye for eye, and life for life" . . . but not only is Cain guilty of Abel's blood. Here God vindicates Abel's faith, calling Cain a "citizen of the world", a wanderer with no inheritance in this earth, and no redemption for himself or his offspring. This curse seems most prominent among the International Jew. More "Jews" have migrated to America since Britain betrayed her Arab allies at the Paris Peace Conference after World War I than have settled in Israel. This Conference established Palestine as a home for the "Jews" and invested Britain with a mandate to govern the country. But America is now their "Palestine" and New York their "Empire State". "Jews" don't want to be farmers and craftsmen, and do not expect to live in Israel. They are wanderers.
George Washington and Benjamin Franklin made the same observation at the Constitutional Convention and wanted Jews excluded from America by the Constitution. "For over 1,700 years the Jews have been bewailing their sad fate in that they have been exiled from their homeland, as they call Palestine. But, Gentlemen, did the world today give it to them in fee simple they would at once find some cogent reason for not returning. Why? Because they are vampires, and vampires do not live on vampires. They cannot live only among themselves. They must subsist on Christians and other peoples not of their race" (Diary of Charles Pinckney).
Canaan was also cursed and scattered, and the land he had occupied and cultivated (as a servant of servants) was covenanted by God to Israel (Genesis 12:1-7; 15:13-21; 17:7-8).
Both Canaan's people and his land were "cherem", a Hebrew word meaning something which is withdrawn from common use and set apart for the exclusive use of God. Something FORCIBLY dedicated to Him as a thing that had been withdrawn from His service and worship, wherein He was not glorified, and again, by the hands of another, devoted to Him that He might be glorified. The Greek equivalent is "anathema". In the case of the Canaanites who were natural Serpent's seed, cherem is the consecration to God of His enemies (Heb. "hated ones"), and their belongings by means of fire and sword.
Numbers 21:1-3, "And when the king of Arad, the Canaanite, who dwelt in the south (Negeb), learned that Israel came via Atharim, the way of the spies; he fought against them, taking prisoners. And Israel vowed to the Lord that if He would deliver the king and his people, they would utterly destroy ("cherem") their cities."
"And the Lord heeded their supplication, defeating the Canaanites; and Israel utterly destroyed ("cherem") them and their cities: and God called the name of the place Hormah" (which means "devoted" or "dedicated" thing, as in "cherem").
In the King James Bible, "cherem" is translated accursed (thing), consecrated, devoted, corban, consecrated, ban, or utterly destroy.
In the natural, the Canaanites were God's enemies. In the Spiritual, it is our "old man" or worldly nature which we dedicate on the Sacrifice Altar for destruction at our new birth so a "new Husband-man", Christ the Word, can rule our soul (Colossians 3:3; Romans 6:11-12; 7:1-6; Ephesians 2:1). Thus God "destroys the works of the Devil", which place the nature of the world (presently under his dominion) upon everyone born of flesh (Romans 8:4-9; Hebrews 2:14-15).
Cherem speaks of separating things from a common to a sacred use, consecrating them to the Lord in order that He might consume or otherwise pour His righteous indignation upon them, as He did to Israel's sin offerings and to Christ in our stead on the cross.
Hence we have the expression, "accursed to the Lord" (Leviticus 27:28-29; Joshua 6:17-21). Nothing "cherem" may be redeemed. So we hold no hopes for the Serpent's seed. Hence when Achan salvaged a Babylonish garment, a wedge of gold and some silver coinage from Jericho which were "cherem", he brought that curse upon Israel such that they were routed in the battle against Ai and thirty-six Israelites were slain. Joshua took Achan with his spoils, his sons and his daughters, his tent and his livestock, and all Israel stoned them and burned them with fire (Joshua 7).
Such will be the fate of the spiritual serpent's seed who partake of the "accursed thing" by adding to and taking from God's Word to establish denominational creeds. They will be stoned and after the White Throne Judgment, cast into the lake of Fire which is the second death. The first death is physical, that of the body. The second death is spiritual, that of the soul (Ezekiel 18:4, 20: Revelation 16:21; 20:11-15).
Devoting something to God for utter destruction as a sacrifice is an act justified and demanded by His holiness, and one therefore which is required to be performed in a solemn frame of mind, free from carnal passion and selfishness. Such was the destruction of Canaan (Numbers 21:1-3; 21-35; Deuteronomy 2:32-3:6). King Saul of Israel made his fatal mistake when he spared the life of Agag, king of the Amalekites and kept alive the best of their livestock, which God had declared "cherem".
And (so-called) Christian Churches in this end-time Message, which should be separated from unbelief in the revealed Word, are without faith like Saul. And like Achan, their pastors are bringing the curse upon their assemblies by trying to do God a service against His will: inviting physical and spiritual Serpent's seed into their pulpits, who are enmity with God and man, (Genesis 3:15; Romans 8:6-7; II Timothy 3:1-4:5). How like Balaam who caused the Hebrew children to commit natural fornication and be defiled.
Nothing in the Old Testament can be fully understood unless we see in it the type of things that are to happen in the end of the world. God told Abraham He would not lead Israel to their Promised Land until the iniquity of the Amorites became so great he would invoke "cherem" following the first Exodus under Moses.
Brother Branham taught: "God has been long-suffering, waiting, and watching. He let the Lutheran rise in a revival, then organize. Let the Methodist rise in a revival: organize. Let John Smith of the Baptist church rise up with a great revival: organized. Let the Pentecostals raise up with the restoration of the gifts: organized; until the iniquity gets plumb full, then God's tired."
"Then there comes an exodus, and we see it;" (Brother Branham is speaking of the third exodus wherein the Holy Spirit is leading the Bride out of denominational bondage to the eternal land of the MillenniumMatthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4. In the second exodus, the Church came out of bondage to the Law and the accursed "traditions of the elders" which became the Talmud)" . . . that the thing is cursed. They take a wedge and a fine Babylonian garment AGAIN. And that's the thing that curses amongst the people, when man tries to inject his own ideas about things."
"We've got to stay with that Word; the commandment of God was not to touch nothing in that city, that cursed city. Don't touch it; leave it alone."
"And Achan thought that he could take this gold wedge and live pretty decently like the rest of the world . . . and fine Babylonian garment. Oh, at the Achans in the camps . . . See? But the thing's cursed, and its continually cursed. It was cursed since the very Nicene Council at Nicaea, Rome. It's been cursed ever since, but God's let the iniquity fill up until the time of the Amorites is about fulfilled."
"And now, anybody with Spiritual understanding, remember, I keep quoting, "Spiritual understanding." You can see that the iniquity of this nation is filled up. She's organized and reorganized and organized and organized, and now she's confederated and joining with something else. The iniquity is filled up."
"It's time for exodus. It's time for a calling out to the promised land, not the promise of just another country to go to, but a home, the millennium, time for a calling out" (Third Exodus, 17:1-6).
Civilization and knowledge perverts God's Word to suit their own taste. Every denomination does the same thing. Satan then preaches his own gospel of knowledge in his own church. He's doing this in Message denominations today. When the Seventh Trumpet and Sixth Seal manifest, Los Angeles will sink beneath the Ocean. The world will choose Rothschild's gold wedge and unite under a Babylonian garment of Roman creed and dogma. The World Council of Churches is the vehicle to accomplish this. They are all "cherem" (Revelation 18:4; 19:20; 20:10).
When Israel was overcoming on their pilgrimage before they settled their rest, God instructed them to utterly slay of the Canaanites "everything that breathes"; but to save the kindred of Adam's race and place them under tribute (Deuteronomy 20:10-18). Israel failed to obey God and preserved the Canaanites alive, placing them under tribute (Joshua 16:10; Judges 1:28). Esau/Edom intermarried with Judah following the ultimatum of Judas Maccabaeus and has to all intents stolen-back the birthright he sold to Israel. Today Esau holds the Hebrews, and the rest of the world, under tribute, styling himself a "Jew".
So in the new heavens and new earth, the "saved" will serve, under tribute as it were, bringing a tithe of their service to the King, His Queen and the elect Hebrews of both Old and New Testaments in the Holy City. And the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their time in the lake of Fire: which is the second deathcherem, or anathema.
We see "cherem" in Revelation 18-22, when at the end of the ages, the Enemy is destroyed and glorious Edenic rest restored. Cherem was precisely what Paul was pronouncing in Galatians 1:8-9, and Jesus in Revelation 22:18-19.
"And it shall come to pass, that in the new heavens and new earth, "the saved" of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to celebrate the ingathering . . . In that day shall the bells of the horses have written upon them, HOLINESS UNTO THE Lord; and the pots in the Lord's house shall be like the bowls before the altar. Every pot in all the houses of Jerusalem and in Judah shall be dedicated and holy unto the Lord such that all who sacrifice may take and boil their sacrifices therein: and grasping traders in such wares will no longer seen at the temple. And in that day there shall be no more a Canaanite in the house of the Lord." As there was in the time of our Lord and is to this day (Zechariah 14:16, 20-21). bb000402.htm
