"There are two world histories. One is the official and full of lies, destined to be taught in schoolsthe other is the secret history, which harbors the true causes and occurrences"Honore deBalzac.
There are two Bible stories. One is the official and full of lies, destined to be taught in Bible schools and worldly churchesthe other is the secret revelation, which reveals the present TruthPaul (II Corinthians 3:6); Peter (II Peter 1:12).
Investigative journalist Christopher Bollyn, who is working on a book entitled "Solving 9/11," dedicated to explaining what really happened and bringing the events of 9/11 into historical perspective, wrote: A regime based on lies, deception and fear cannot last long. The Bible says we should not fear evildoers knowing that their lies will be exposed: "Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known" (Matthew 10:26).
Israelis and Americans are similar in several respects. Both are extremely propagandized populations suffering under criminal regimes. Israelis and Americans are living in nations that were created through immigration and settlement on previously occupied land. In both cases the indigenous people were badly treated and suffered immense injustices. (Lakota Indians, who gave the world legendary warriors Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, have finally withdrawn from treaties with the United States to become a separate nation, the Hebrews and Palestinians are still fighting for their freedom - Ed).
Both nations are victims of propaganda and deception on a grand scale. False-flag terrorism and relentless propaganda have been ruthlessly applied to both societies. As a result, both nations are being turned into paranoid fortress states in which a very unhealthy fear and distorted view of the world is cultivated by the media and governments. Both states are extremely militaristic, reckless, and arrogant, thinking that their military power validates who they are. They are, in fact, the real barbarians of the world. . . the criminal regime behind both states has committed and exploited acts of terrorism against their own people to give themselves power and to shape public opinion to support their evil agenda.
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.

You will remember Brother Branham explained earth's third birth pain. The United States has been its cause since August 6, 1945. It will soon bite off 1,300x300-400 miles of California. Some years later it will devastate the whole of North America, and within seven years, the world. Please read the following links which explain what is taking place now.
A man named Assadullah told the team in February 2003 that his wife had given birth to child so badly deformed he hardly resembled an infant. "When I saw my little boy with those monstrous red tumors, I thought to myself, why is it difficult for Americans to understand that they are hated in our country?" Assadullah said. "If I do this to the child of an American family, that family has the right to pull my eyes out of my eye sockets. I like to tell the Americans that they love to live their lives of luxury at the expense of our extermination." [European Parliament Verbatim Report of Proceedings Apr 9/02]
Zar Ghoon is the father of another victim of US bombing attacks on Kunduz. In December 2002 he told the medical survey team, "My wife was pregnant and we were happily waiting for the moment to see our second child. When the baby was born, it was hardly a human. . . When my wife saw the baby, she went into shock and died after five hours."
Speaking with a field volunteers near Tora Bora in April 2003, Sa'yed Gharib lost it. Screaming in grief and rage he shouted, "What else do the Americans want? They killed us, they turned our newborns into horrific deformations, and they turned our farmlands into graveyards and destroyed our homes. On top of all that their planes fly over and spray us with bullets."
"Tell America, we are not fools. Your words and actions are those of evil. We do not have airplanes like you do; however, we have one thing that you do not have: principles and morals. We will never do anything remotely similar to American children what Americans have done to our children and families," declared Nurullah Omar-Khail.

'Doomsday Seed Vault' in the Arctic
December 4, 2007 Bill Gates, Rockefeller and the GMO giants know something we don't.
The explicit aim of the eugenics lobby funded by wealthy elite families such as Rockefeller, Carnegie, Harriman and others since the 1920's, has embodied what they termed "negative eugenics," the systematic killing off of undesired bloodlines. Margaret Sanger, a rabid eugenicist, the founder of Planned Parenthood International and an intimate of the Rockefeller family, created something called The Negro Project in 1939, based in Harlem, which as she confided in a letter to a friend, was all about the fact that, as she put it, "we want to exterminate the Negro population."
A small California biotech company, Epicyte, in 2001 announced the development of genetically engineered corn which contained a spermicide which made the semen of men who ate it sterile. At the time Epicyte had a joint venture agreement to spread its technology with DuPont and Syngenta, two of the sponsors of the Svalbard Doomsday Seed Vault. Epicyte was since acquired by a North Carolina biotech company. Astonishing to learn was that Epicyte had developed its spermicidal GMO corn with research funds from the US Department of Agriculture, the same USDA which, despite worldwide opposition, continued to finance the development of Terminator technology, now held by Monsanto.
In the 1990"s the UN"s World Health Organization launched a campaign to vaccinate millions of women in Nicaragua, Mexico and the Philippines between the ages of 15 and 45, allegedly against Tentanus, a sickness arising from such things as stepping on a rusty nail. The vaccine was not given to men or boys, despite the fact they are presumably equally liable to step on rusty nails as women.
Because of that curious anomaly, Comite Pro Vida de Mexico, a Roman Catholic lay organization became suspicious and had vaccine samples tested. The tests revealed that the Tetanus vaccine being spread by the WHO only to women of child-bearing age contained human Chorionic Gonadotrophin or hCG, a natural hormone which when combined with a tetanus toxoid carrier stimulated antibodies rendering a woman incapable of maintaining a pregnancy. None of the women vaccinated were told.
It later came out that the Rockefeller Foundation along with the Rockefeller's Population Council, the World Bank (home to CGIAR), and the United States" National Institutes of Health had been involved in a 20-year-long project begun in 1972 to develop the concealed abortion vaccine with a tetanus carrier for WHO. In addition, the Government of Norway, the host to the Svalbard Doomsday Seed Vault, donated $41 million to develop the special abortive Tetanus vaccine.
Is it a coincidence that these same organizations, from Norway to the Rockefeller Foundation to the World Bank are also involved in the Svalbard seed bank project? According to Prof. Francis Boyle who drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989 enacted by the US Congress, the Pentagon is "now gearing up to fight and win biological warfare" as part of two Bush national strategy directives adopted, he notes, "without public knowledge and review" in 2002. Boyle adds that in 2001-2004 alone the US Federal Government spent $14.5 billion for civilian bio-warfare-related work, a staggering sum. . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

Bill includes US-Israel Missile Coordination
December 14, 2007 Congress is set to approve a plan to integrate the US and Israeli missile defense systems.
The proposal, authored by US Rep. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), is part of the Defense Authorization Act passed late Wednesday by the US House of Representatives and due to be considered by the Senate before Christmas break. Under the proposal, the secretary of defense must within six months present to Congress a plan "to improve the coordination, interoperability, and integration of the US National Ballistic Missile Defense System with Israel's missile defense architecture". . .
Such a plan will help defend Israel against reported plans by Iran to build missiles that can reach Israel, Kirk said. "Israel will be the first and only country to fully integrate with the American missile defense architecture," the statement said. "It is a symbol of our shared values and a safer 21st century."

Bush Sr. will be shot Dead if caught stealing Again
December 13, 2007 The practical motive underlying all this is that the US perpetrators, including Citibank and Morgan Stanley, 'can't quit' because they are covering up the existence of the illegal Citibank slush fund accounts that they hold in the names of some of the world-class financial giga-criminals who have been identified in these reports. This is the biggest financial scandal, we repeat, in world history, and the US authorities are still prepared to let this scandal continue? No way. We will not allow it. This abomination has to be exposed: now. We promise the whole world that these abominations will be exposed. It is too late for them to be covered up with bribery and lies any longer.
- Central Banks dragooned to provide cover for continuing the thefts
- Editor's office windows smashed following briefing for this report
- Citibank lies that Wanta has been paid and has agreed a joint venture
- Bush Sr. told point blank that he'll be 'liquidated' if he does it again
- Investigators confront Citibank with evidence of huge secret accounts
- Citibank Board switched, to obtain an extension from Federal Judge
- Fed-organised Central Bank actiona smokescreen to continue the theft

The Problem is not Local it is GLOBAL
On December 6, President Bush and Treasury Secretary Paulson announced an agreement with lenders that will fix rates on some mortgage loans for five years. In any such "agreement," only the government holds the gun. The private parties have no means to defend themselves.
This is, of course, all about the US subprime and mortgage breakdown.
Of course, what has been totally pushed aside, for now, is the simple fact that this action has breached contracts all over the world. US subprimes and associated "toxic sludge" has been spread all over the world in CDOs etc. Since August, financial institutions worldwide have had to admit to holding this type of paper. In their growing multitudes, they have also had to seek rescues from their respective Central Banks.
This US "rule change" is an attempt to lock all these institutions into these US "investments" for the next five years, at interest rates so artificially low that the loans will be uneconomic. Under the contract, the rates on these loans were supposed to climb. Now, they will NOT!
So far, these actions by President Bush and Treasury Secretary Paulson have mainly hit the innumerable private contracts which extend across all borders. But the precedent has been set. Now, extend it to the global debts of the US Treasury. Nearly two-thirds of the US Treasury's debt (notes, bills, etc.) is short-termit matures within 1 to 3 years. If interest rates on this short-term official US debt paper start climbing early next year, so would the cost to the US Treasury of servicing its massive foreign debts. What happens if Bush and Paulson act on the earlier "precedent" and unilaterally alter the US Treasury's 1 and 3 month notes, changing them all to five-year notes for example? Obviously, the lenders to the US Treasury would be locked into losses. With this precedent having been set, the "political risk" of holding ANY US financial paperor US Dollarshas soared. The world will be well aware of this. . . In effect, these breaches of contract tell foreign lenders and those who invested in US financial paper that they will NOT be paid as stipulated in the contract. The contracts cannot be honoured. Mr. Bush and Mr. Paulson have prohibited it. Tough luck.
The reason this has happened is simple. US lenders cannot raise the interest rates on their $US 2 TRILLION in subprime loans outstanding. Since they are unable to raise interest rates for five years, they cannot pay the interest rates that they owe to the foreigners who lent them the money or who bought their toxic sludge subprime and other fraudulent financial paper. For the moment, the US financial houses are "secure." It is their foreign lenders and investors who are looking at five years of losses.
But where, or from whom, does the US borrow early next year? The US needs to "import" $US 2.8 to $3.1 billion dailyto fund its current deficit.
Globally, an "end game" situation is fast approaching. The US must start taking the required steps . . . the only other alternative is US debt default! . . . Now, the West's Central Banks are prepared to repeat the Weimar Republic mistakes, at computer speed! Full story: The Privateer Newsletter 593
Comment: This week the Fed loaned US$20 billion to banks while the European Central Bank has loaned US$500 billion. The inane Bali agreement on Climate Change will exacerbate economic hard times with no productive gain. . . except for "the City": a diminution in the "middle class," "famine," "depopulation," the export of first world productive economies and jobs to the third world and reduction of the United States to the mercenary army of a revived Roman Empire.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is not a Pollutant
December 10, 2007 An inconvenient new peer-reviewed study published in the December 2007 issue of the International Journal of Climatology says, Climate warming is naturally caused and shows no human influence:
Climate scientists at the University of Rochester, the University of Alabama, and the University of Virginia report that observed patterns of temperature changes ('fingerprints') over the last thirty years are not in accord with what greenhouse models predict and can better be explained by natural factors, such as solar variability. Therefore, climate change is 'unstoppable' and cannot be affected or modified by controlling the emission of greenhouse gases, such as CO2, as is proposed in current legislation.
These results are in conflict with the conclusions of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and also with some recent research publications based on essentially the same data. However, they are supported by the results of the US-sponsored Climate Change Science Program (CCSP).
The report is published in the December 2007 issue of the International Journal of Climatology of the Royal Meteorological Society [DOI: 10.1002/joc.1651]. The fundamental question is whether the observed warming is natural or anthropogenic (human-caused). Lead author David Douglass said: "The observed pattern of warming, comparing surface and atmospheric temperature trends, does not show the characteristic fingerprint associated with greenhouse warming. The inescapable conclusion is that the human contribution is not significant and that observed increases in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases make only a negligible contribution to climate warming."
Co-author John Christy said: "Satellite data and independent balloon data agree that atmospheric warming trends do not exceed those of the surface. Greenhouse models, on the other hand, demand that atmospheric trend values be 2-3 times greater. We have good reason, therefore, to believe that current climate models greatly overestimate the effects of greenhouse gases. Satellite observations suggest that GH models ignore negative feedbacks, produced by clouds and by water vapor, that diminish the warming effects of carbon dioxide."
Co-author S. Fred Singer said: "The current warming trend is simply part of a natural cycle of climate warming and cooling that has been seen in ice cores, deep-sea sediments, stalagmites, etc., and published in hundreds of papers in peer-reviewed journals. The mechanism for producing such cyclical climate changes is still under discussion; but they are most likely caused by variations in the solar wind and associated magnetic fields that affect the flux of cosmic rays incident on the earth's atmosphere. In turn, such cosmic rays are believed to influence cloudiness and thereby control the amount of sunlight reaching the earth's surface and thus the climate." Our research demonstrates that the ongoing rise of atmospheric CO2 has only a minor influence on climate change. We must conclude, therefore, that attempts to control CO2 emissions are ineffective and pointlessbut very costly. Full story: canadafreepress.com
Comment: Gore especially shone when he exhibited his vast knowledge of the science of climate change. Addressing the fact that icecaps on Mars are melting as well and temperatures on Pluto have also been rising, Mr. Gore said, "This just underscores how the Bush administration is bent on destroying not just the ecosystem of the Earth, but of the whole Universe." The former vice-president did not take questions after his speech.
Thanks to centrally planned public education and the all-pervasive mass media, whole populations have been made to believe, or at least passively accept, whatever the 'hidden hand' has fed into their subconscious. Trinity, Santa Claus, Holocaust, Cold War, Y2K, WMD, climate change, Iran's nuclear ambitions, tooth fairy. What next?
A team of scientists attending the Bali conference to dispute the man- made global warming theory, experienced heavy handed bully tactics and a mainstream media blackout. Dr. David Evans, a former carbon accounting modeler working for the Australian Greenhouse Office, slammed the conference as a "circus." Following a press conference in Bali debunking the global warming hoax, British Lord Christopher Monckton issued a statement describing the hoax as UN-backed slaughter of the world's poorest people. This charge of genocide, most accurately reflects the actual intention of the City of London financial oligarchy pushing this scam. Rothschilds are interested.
"HAARP is a weapon of mass destruction, capable of destabilising agricultural and ecological systems globally. . .

Torture in Israel
December 14, 2007 "We have to make you do a little sports," the Shin Bet interrogator said, launching four successive days of questioning accompanied by brutal physical torture. The result: Luwaii Ashqar can no longer stand on his feet. He sits in his wheelchair, dressed in a fashionable quasi-military suit, super-elegant, new Caterpillar-brand shoes on his paralyzed feet . . .
What does the interrogator Maimon tell his children when he goes home? What do Eldad and Sagiv tell their wives about their daily labors before they turn in? That they tortured another helpless prisoner until they turned him into a cripple? That they beat this charming young man brutally and that at the end of the interrogation he was tried for only marginal offenses? And where is the Supreme Court, which in 1999 prohibited precisely the chain of torture that Luwaii Sati Ashqar, 30, who was married three years ago, underwent in the Kishon detention facility?
Ashqar is not alone. The Public Committee Against Torture in Israel has just issued a new report containing the testimonies of nine torture victims. . .
"He said to me: Stand on your feet. I felt that my legs were cold, like pins and needles in the legs. I said: I can't. He said: Now you are paralyzed. I said: I guess I am. He said: That is what we promised you and that is what you want". . .

Comment: Aliya anyone?
In contrast to the brutal inhumanity of Fascist Marxist Israel, Auschwitz is described by 84-year-old Paul Maria Hafner in the TV documentary "Hafner's Paradise" as a "ten star hotel" where "Jews were sent for their own protection." In contrast to this, 700+ new and refurbished US internment camps have no swimming pool, sports field, library, facilities for orchestral and concert performances, etc., Jewish Holocaust Investigator, David Cole, described the gas chambers as "life chambers" rather than "death chambers" as they were designed to preserve life from plagues spread by lice. The bloodline (singular) of World War II leaders confirms Moses (Genesis 3:15) to whom God said, "I will raise up an Israelite Prophet like you, and put My Words in His mouth; and He shall make known to Israel all that I command Him" (Deuteronomy 18:15-18; Acts 3:22). Messiah agreed with Moses regarding the bloodline (Matthew 23:33-35).
Diplomacy working for Israel and Holy See
December 14, 2007 Israel and the Holy See will 'speed up' negotiations in coming months, pursuant to Article 10 § 2 of the Fundamental Agreement between the Holy See and the State of Israel signed in far off December 1993. The date for the next plenary is set for May 2008 in the Vatican. . . Full story: speroforum.com
Comment: An agreement was offered to the Vatican by Foreign Minister Shimon Peres in May, 1993, to place the Old City of Jerusalem under Vatican control. This was the focus of Newsletter 028 (Zechariah 14:2; Revelation 16:19).
The Archbishop of Canterbury
December, 2007 Asked if America has lost the moral high ground since September 11th, his answer is simple: "Yes." There is no mitigation. He has obviously thought through what he feels the US should do now to recover, "A generous and intelligent programme of aid directed to the societies that have been ravaged; a check on the economic exploitation of defeated territories; a demilitarisation of their presence. All these things would help."
He describes violence as "a quick discharge of frustration. It serves you. It does not serve the situation. Whenever people turn to violence what they do is temporarily release themselves from some sort of problem but they help no one else." A long term critic of the war on Iraq, he feels that this perspective on violence also applies to Britain's presence there. "A lot of the pressure around the invasion of Iraq was "We've got to do something! Then we'll feel better." That's very dangerous". . .
The Archbishop recognizes that: "We have only one global hegemonic power at the moment." But, he propounds, "It is not accumulating territory; it is trying to accumulate influence and control. That's not working." Far from seeing this positively, he describes it as "the worst of all worlds," saying, "it is one thing to take over a territory and then pour energy and resources into administering it and normalising it. Rightly or wrongly that's what the British Empire didin India for example. It is another thing to go in on the assumption that a quick burst of violent action will somehow clear the decks and that you can move on and other people will put things back togetherIraq for example". . .

Schoolgirls can get Morning After Pill without uttering a Word by flashing 'Modesty' Card
December 17, 2007 Schoolgirls are being provided with contraception 'credit cards' so they can get the morning-after pill without the embarrassment of having to ask for it.
The cards will allow youngsters to request the pill simply by placing the card on the pharmacist's counter. Supporters of the scheme say it will cut unplanned pregnancies by helping teenagers avoid a potentially "daunting" conversation. But the plan was greeted with dismay by family campaigners who say it will encourage irresponsible attitudes to sex. Hundreds of request cardswhich have a picture of a young couple kissing on the fronthave been distributed in schools and youth clubs. . . This month, it was revealed that girls as young as 12 are being given the morning-after pill without their parents' knowledge in eight out of ten health authority areas. . . Full story: dailymail.co.uk
Comment: The image on the credit card condones miscegenation, accursed by the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and a repetition of the original sin "as it was in the days of Noah," confirming Matthew 24:37. Satan is after your children . . . at taxpayers' expense.
The seven Church Ages started out with the antichrist spirit as well as the Holy Spirit. I John 4:3, "Every spirit that does not acknowledge that Jesus Messiah is God incarnate is not from God: it is the spirit of antichrist, of whose coming you have heard and who is in the world right now." Throughout the Gentile dispensation each Church Age commenced with the individual zeal of a small number of elect who, being like-minded, "all spoke the same thing without division, being perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment," having separated from their past associates to the common faith in the Message for their hour (I Corinthians 1:10). As it gained more general acceptance, fellowships grew, but there was a diminution of elect believers in proportion to the make-believers and un-believers, and as children and grandchildren were "born into the Message" from mother's womb rather the womb of the Spirit, faith was replaced by learning manifested in an outward ritual rather than an inner Life.
This describes the Spirit of antichrist entering congregations sanctified by the Message but which have never received the indwelling of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 12:43-45). These churches may not consider themselves a denomination, but if they have organized on traditions they have sincerely inoculated their congregations against the present Truth. Paul said this inoculation is "a strong delusion sent by God to cause the disobedient to believe falsehood" (II Thessalonians 2:11). Once a people are caught up in the comfortable predictability of tradition they are no longer reliant on the Leadership of the Spirit but trusting the wisdom of men.
In every Age God sent his messenger to rebuke and correct the departure from truth then unfold a further revelation of Jesus Christ. Those with anointed ears received and walked into this further Light while their former congregants stumbled along in dank darkness of the traditions of their fathers. This cycle repeated in seven out of seven Church Ages as Christ and antichrist marked out the ground of teaching upon which they are building their kingdoms. Since all seven Church Ages are over, the denominations are uniting in the second crucifixion of the Word into the World Council of Churches, which will enthrone Satan incarnate as president of one world government (Isaiah 14:13-14; II Thessalonians 2:4; Revelation 17:13).
Christians must immerse themselves in the Light God is shining in this day, as it is the fullness of the revealed Word that will illumine Christ's end-time Bride for the manifestation of the Sons of God unto the translation. "God is Light, and we are all the children of Light . . . the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness." We must move the ten senses of our mortal being out of the way so that the Light and Life of God's written and spoken Word can infuse our soul that we may be one in the invisible union of the Bride and Christ (John 17:21-26; Ephesians 4:13).
Like Elisha we look at Messiah's unseen promise to this end-time generation, while churchgoers walking in the glare of an age gone by are blind to the promise of things that are to beeven after they have been and gone (II Kings 6:8-17; Hebrews 11:1-3)! Whatever their blasphemous nameAnglican, Baptist, Methodist, Pentecostal or "Message," denominations are contrary to the faith. Having a mind of their own they are anti-Christ completing the trail of the Serpent by hybridizing God's unchanging Word with the traditions of men, as Brother Branham foretold. The Serpent is on the West coast of America and will complete its global encirclement when its head returns to its beginning in Jerusalem to reunite with its tail in the seven-year agreement foretold in Daniel 9:27 and Revelation 17:12-18. Incarnate in the tail, the dragon which gave power to the beast will be worshipped by all who dwell upon the earth, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. And they will worship the beast, saying, Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?"
Churches are trying to do the Work of the Lord by human reasoning with no clear vision of the Word of the hour. Rather than seek out men with a calling and inspiration, churches too often rely upon human reasoning, material resources, education programs and trained ministers to proselytize and grow their number. This may be self-sacrificing and seemingly noble, however the kingdom of God is not built by sincere effort alone nor vindicated by numbers, but by faith engraved on the heart of an election whose lives are written epistles of that present Truth (I John 1:7).
The natural believer assessing the Work of the Lord on the basis of what he could see, hear, taste, touch, or smell, would be auditing the false church by a measure that is trying to disprove God through sincere self works apart from faith in the present Truth. Were he assessing the true Church by the same measure he would dismiss us as irrelevant because we are small in number and led by the Spirit rather than program. "But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God: for to him they are foolishness and he cannot understand them as they are spiritually discerned" (I Corinthians 2:14). On the other hand, we consider it a privileged burden when our life is full of difficulties and temptations, knowing the testing of our faith produces a steadfastness by which we rest in what God has revealed in His unchanging Word, not on scientific programs and professional equipment or what worldly senses declare.
Christians see by the eye of faith and travel paths unperceived by the world, for the Word of God blinds the eyes of some, and opens the eyes of others. As Paul explained, "My Message and my preaching were not in persuasive, learned oratory, but rather in evidence of the Spirit and power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom but in divine strength" (ibid. 2:4-5). Jesus was born of a woman, but He had neither biological father nor biological mother. He was in the world and although He lived and dressed like an ordinary man of his time, He was not of the world and had no part in the wisdom of the world. How could he partake of the world when He was God incarnate? His learning and wisdom were from above (John 5:19), yet even before He had achieved the age of accountability He sat among the teachers of the Law in the temple, listening and asking them questions, "And all who heard Him were amazed at His understanding and His answers" (Luke 2:47). He questioned them and explained their questions by faith, which is the mind of God in His children. The world system of education is contrary to faith, leading men to rely on their finite intelligence, reasoning away from the infinite all-knowing God and eternal Life. When the rulers of the people, and elders of Israel saw the mighty works of God performed through Peter's ministry, "and saw the boldness of the testimony of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated common men they wondered and they recognized that they had been with Jesus" (Acts 4:13).
Science, theology and human reasoning is unbelief; trying to understand God rather than to know and love Him deadens faith, and tends to hubris, rebellion and insanity on a global scale. Like a lobster, humanity has been so slowly cooked in unbelief, lewdness and ignorance he has become insensitive to the changing conditions, or has grown so cozy under the welfare state he no longer cares to know the rigorous Absolute of the ancient landmark of faith, character and morality set by the fathers. Nowadays everything is situational so that in the world the Absolute is unloved, unknown, and unwanted. Men will not believe the vindicated Word of God, and count it foolishness although they have never sought to understand or put it to the test, yet they will believe the most obvious contradictions of history and egregious claims that cannot be supported. For instance, the untutored Gentile has been led to believe that the adherents of Judaism are simply believers in the Old Testament still awaiting their promised Messiah, but we have been dumbed-down and conditioned to trust the nice man on the six-o'clock news who reassures us "God's in His heaven, all's right with the world." In fact, Jews follow the teachings of the Babylonian Talmud which is the antithesis of the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 15:1-9). Footnote 52 to tractate Kethuboth, 111a, states: "The Messiah [is] without metaphor the Jewish people." This is unbelievable hubris, yet this is what is believed.
Small wonder the Lord said, "Many [Israelites] shall travel, and knowledge shall be increased . . . 144,000 [Israelites] shall be born-again, and martyred; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand" (Daniel 12:4, 10; Revelation 6:11; 7:1-8). Israelites are certainly clueless, believing themselves to be Jews, as are Jews who believe they are Israelites, when they are not even Semitic. Nominal Christians are equally clueless, believing God is a Trinity, that baptism is in three Titles, and that the different denominations are all Christians although each teach a different Gospel when Jesus promised the Holy Spirit would lead us into all truth so that we would be in one mind and one accord like the new-born saints on the day of Pentecost.
Jesus foresaw the true Christian Church as a "little flock." When the Lord revealed the thoughts and intents of the heart through Brother Branham's ministry, telling perfect strangers their personal details, exposing hidden sins, diagnosing diseases and pronouncing them healed, they knew they were in the Presence of the unseen Messiah, revealing Himself the same yesterday, and today, and forever in fulfillment of Luke 17:28-30. God's Word was the certain "Yes, and Amen" when Jesus told the paralyzed man, "Arise, pick up your bed and walk." God's Word was certain when Peter said to the beggar crippled from birth, "Silver and gold I have none; but such as I have I give you. In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk." And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God." God's Word was just as certain when Brother Branham told Congressman Upshaw, "Stand on your feet, Jesus Christ has made you whole" after the Lord Jesus had shown him a vision of this perfect stranger, and revealed how he had been injured and bound to a wheelchair sixty-six years. God's Word was so certain the Congressman rushed to the platform, touched his toes, and could almost do a hand spring at eighty-six years of age.
That spoken Word will operate in you and in me during the manifestation of the Sons of God; not as a public display, but to supply our personal needs after Satan has been cast down to earth at the close of the Gentile dispensation. God is not a showman. The "third pull" will operate in you and in me in response to inspiration or vision to fulfill our needs, encourage and endue us with faith for translation grace.
The Messianic sign of Hebrews 4:12 in Brother Branham's meetings raised faith in the congregation to take God at His Word that what He says will come to pass, and it did come to pass. These meetings were recorded so that we too could witness the vindicated Presence of Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today and forever through Brother Branham's ministry and believe in the certainty of God's Word spoken by His Prophet. This was his vindication so that we, like those present in his meetings, would know that what we have witnessed is real, and that when we take his ministry to the Scriptures we will see that he is confirmed as the prophet promised to our generation. We must have certainty for the Prince of Darkness is descending with his host of demons, and psychology will be no defence against the master of chutzpah. The testimony of Brother Branham's ministry confirms our day, and that it's Message is THUS SAITH THE LORD, instilling confidence in us to take Christ at His Word in expectation of things that are to be.
The false church has followed the Jews in sin to apostasy as Paul foretold in Romans 11:32 and Galatians 3:22. The once Protestant churches that today call themselves by the oxymoron "Judaeo-Christian" are uniting under their Judaeo-Roman Catholic mother church from whose lewdness they once fled to serve Christ. Since becoming harlots to the Word, they are returning as a dog to its vomit and a sow to its wallow, confirming they are not born of the Man, not Christ Jesus manifest Bodily in the form of His Church today. As it was in the days of Sodom, God has revealed the Son of Man behind the flesh of Brother Branham by the Messianic sign of Hebrews 4:12, just before our Gentile civilization is destroyed by fire from heaven. Brother Branham said, "The last and seventh vision was wherein I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:3).
Whereas man promotes himself so as to demand respect, God hides Himself in simplicity and reveals Himself in humility, thus commanding respect. I Peter 5:5-7, "Submit yourselves to the elder. Be subject one to another, and clothed with humility: for God resists the proud, and gives grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time: casting all your care upon Him; for He cares for you." Satan is building his kingdom upon chutzpahthe lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life. The image of his kingdom commenced with the glory of the head of gold in Nebuchadnezzar's Babylon and has degenerated to the feet of iron mixed with clay, representing "mystery, Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth." The kingdom of man will soon become the kingdom of Satan incarnate, abased in utter loss when the Stone cut out from the mountain smites it in the feet of iron and clay.
Brother Branham said, "In the Laodicean Age the people were what?
Blind. What good does light do to a blind man? If the blind leads the blind, don't they all fall in the ditch? Naked, blind, and don't know it. Even their . . . faculties are gone . . . of spiritual understanding. See?
"Heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, and despisers of those that are good, having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof." (The power of revelation, they don't even believe in it. See?). . . They don't believe in such things as prophets, and so. . . They don't believe in it. They believe that Malachi 4 is to be a certain church or certain organization.
When he come the first time he was a man. When he come the second time with a double portion, he was a man. When he come in the form of John the Baptist, he was a man. See? In the last days when the evening Lights begin to shine, eyes will become open and you'll see where you're going. Then the Body is already formed, standing upon its feet, taking motion, moving by the Holy Spirit. What? The same One that moved upon the prophets that wrote the Bible, the same Holy Ghost moving in a Body, filled with the Holy Ghost, moved in the Holy Ghost out of every organization and every kindred, tongue, and people" (Christ is Revealed in His Own Word, p. 37:159).
The Lord Jesus Christ was an Israelite Prophet like Moses, of whom the prophet Peter said, "Him shall you hear in all things whatsoever He shall say unto you" (Acts 3:22). And He said, "Elijah truly shall precede My second (Gk. 'parousia') Coming, and He shall restore all things spoken by the mouth of all God's holy prophets since the world began" (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Acts 3:21). This "Elijah" was the man William Branham, the Mighty prophet-messenger or "angel" John saw in the visions from which he signified the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Peter went on to say, "And it shall some to pass, that every soul that will not hear that Prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people" (Acts 3:23), or cast into the great tribulation.
Brother Branham had the ministry of restoring God's elect to the faith once delivered to our apostolic fathers. Without this ministry of restoration one cannot be restored to the apostolic faith which is the new birth in this day. Outside his Message "are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loves and makes a lie" (Revelation 22:15).
The kingdom of God began in humility with the birth of a Baby in a stinking animal stall by a woman found to be pregnant before she and her husband had come together. This week the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams said, "new Christians need not leap over the "hurdle" of belief in the virgin birth before they could join the church. . . the virgin birth was "part of what I have inherited." It is a revelation, not an inheritance. One cannot be a Christian, or even a Muslim, and disbelieve the virgin birth; it eliminates the possibility of redemption, although it may tickle the hubris of apostate Jews who do not believe the Torah and claim they are their own Messiah!
Isaiah 53:2-3, "In God's eyes Jesus was like a tender green shoot, sprouting from a root in dry and sterile ground, with no form or comeliness that should attract our eyes, and possessed of no beauty that should draw us to Him. He was despised and rejected by men, a Man of sufferings, acquainted with sickness. We turned our backs on Him and looked the other way when He went by. He was despised and we did not esteem Him." The state sought to kill him as an infant. He must have been home-schooled as He was not a man of letters yet He taught in the temple whose priests convicted Him in a kangaroo trial and had the Roman authority sentence Him to death. He was hated by his near kinsmen, spat upon, mocked, scourged with whips and accursed by hanging on a tree. Yet He rose again on the third day according to the Scriptures, and was exalted to God's right hand with all authority in heaven and on earth.
From the foundation of the world, God had a secret plan and purpose according to which He chose His elect whom He foreknew in the Logos, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, making known to us in all wisdom and insight the secret of His will, according to His purpose in sending Messiah. God's secret plan was to be consummated after the completion of the seven times or Church Ages through the restoration of the fullness of the Word spoken by the mouth of all God's holy prophets since the world began plus the revelation of the mystery of the voices of the unwritten Seven Thunders. The fullness of the Word is the Logos, which is Jesus Christ in WORD form. At this time He would gather His elect, whether they are in heaven on living on earth, to be with Christ forever (Ephesians 1:3-10; Acts 3:21; Revelation 10:7; I Thessalonians 4:16; I Corinthians 15:46-58). All God was He poured into Christ, and all Christ was He poured into His Church. As Jesus was the Word made flesh, God's elect are the flesh becoming Word.
We who are familiar with and follow the present Truthwhat Jesus is doing now, understand that the fullness of times is "the time of the end" (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4). It commenced with fulfillment of Revelation 4, 5, and 10:1-7, after the last saint predestinated to the Laodicean Church Age was baptized into the Body. Redemption is over; Christ's Mediation in the office of Son of God is fulfilled. As signified by Revelation 10:1-6 and I Thessalonians 4:16, the revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963 brought Him back to earth in WORD form in the office of Son of man (I Corinthians 13:10).
As Son of man He is Judge (John 5:27). He indicted the worldly false church (Revelation 17:1-5), and is calling the wise and foolish out from Rome and her harlot daughters by the "midnight cry, or "shout" of the prophet's Message (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:4), into maturity in the unity of the faith (Ephesians 4:13) for the manifestation of the Sons of God (Romans 8:19) and the translation.
The true Church has taken His place. Whereas "God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself . . . He has committed the Word of reconciliation to His Body, and we speak in His place" (II Corinthians 5:18-21). As natural life must pass through the body of a husband to his wife, who are one flesh, so the Life of Christ must pass through His Body to conceive His elect, for "Faith comes from an understanding of what is heard, and what is heard comes by the preaching of Christ" (Romans 10:17).
Christ is our type. As He was "born to rule all nations with a rod of iron, and caught up to heaven to God and His throne" (Revelation 12:5; Acts 1:9-11), we shall soon be caught up together with those who went before us, to meet the Lord in the Air. We're watching and waiting for that glad Millennium day, when our blessed Lord shall come and catch His waiting Bride away. The first resurrection will pattern after the type of Christ's resurrection (Matthew 27:51-53), commencing on the first day of Pentecost, three days after Los Angeles and 1,300x300-400 miles of California sink beneath the Pacific, and the Mount of Olives splits asunder, marking the end of grace and man's day, and the commencement of the Day of the Lord and Daniel's Seventieth Week.
At that time there will be another cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary as Satan and his demonic host is cast down to earth. Christ's "little flock" will be a hunted and persecuted little group, the "squeeze" will drive us of necessity to manifest that we are the Sons of God. The "third pull" in the individual members of the living Bride with the mind of God will cause Him to do what we say (John 15:7). This vindication of who we are will raise our faith so that we can change in the atoms after about six weeks when one of our resurrected Brethren from the Church Ages will appear to us in glorified form to encourage translation grace in the faith required to put off this mortal spirit for theophany, and change our corruptible flesh into a glorified body like His glorious redeemed Body. nl506.htm
