Lawmakers order Fed to relinquish Merrill Documents
June 10, 2009 A congressional oversight committee issued a subpoena yesterday to force the Federal Reserve to turn over internal documents related to Bank of America's acquisition of Merrill Lynch, part of a growing investigation into whether government officials pressured the bank to withhold details about the deal from investors.
The subpoena, which was issued by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, is highly unusual and the first issued by the panel this year. It comes after the Fed refused to send the committee internal e-mails and notes related to its role in the purchase. . . Full story: washingtonpost.com

The Accidental Guerrilla: Dr David Kilcullen
June 7, 2009 In the first few years of the post-9/11 era, the established models for fighting 'small wars' proved distressingly ineffective against resilient insurgencies in Iraq and Afghanistan. As the insurgents fought western armies to a stalemate, it was clear that a new approach was necessary. Dr David Kilcullen, a former Australian army officer with combat experience in Southeast Asia and the Middle East and one of the world's most influential experts on guerrilla warfare, became a key architect of the West's revamped military strategy. As the senior counterinsurgency adviser to General David Patraeus in Iraq, Kilcullen's revolutionary approach to counterinsurgency was an intellectual foundation for 'the Surge' of 2007.
David Kilcullen is one of the world's leading experts on guerrilla warfare and, rare among his kind, has a PhD (UNSW) in political anthropology. He has served in every theatre of the 'War on Terror' since 9/11 as special adviser for counterinsurgency to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and chief counterterrorism strategist for the US State Department.

A Factual Appraisal of the 'Holocaust'
Three Volume (1,600 Page) Report of the International Committee of the Red Cross on its Activities during the Second World War, Geneva, 1948.
No Evidence of Genocide
One of the most important aspects of the Red Cross Report is that it clarifies the true cause of those deaths that undoubtedly occurred in the camps toward the end of the war. Says the Report: "In the chaotic condition of Germany after the invasion during the final months of the war, the camps received no food supplies at all and starvation claimed an increasing number of victims. Itself alarmed by this situation, the German Government at last informed the ICRC on February 1st, 1945 . . . In March 1945, discussions between the President of the ICRC and General of the S.S. Kaltenbrunner gave even more decisive results. Relief could henceforth be distributed by the ICRC, and one delegate was authorized to stay in each camp . . ." (Vol. III, p. 83).
Clearly, the German authorities were at pains to relieve the dire situation as far as they were able. The Red Cross are quite explicit in stating that food supplies ceased at this time due to the Allied bombing of German transportation, and in the interests of interned Jews they had protested on March 15th, 1944 against "the barbarous aerial warfare of the Allies" (Inter Arma Caritas, p. 78). By October 2nd, 1944, the ICRC warned the German Foreign Office of the impending collapse of the German transportation system, declaring that starvation conditions for people throughout Germany were becoming inevitable.
In dealing with this comprehensive, three-volume Report, it is important to stress that the delegates of the International Red Cross found no evidence whatever at the camps in Axis occupied Europe of a deliberate policy to exterminate the Jews. In all its 1,600 pages the Report does not even mention such a thing as a gas chamber. It admits that Jews, like many other wartime nationalities, suffered rigours and privations, but its complete silence on the subject of planned extermination is ample refutation of the Six Million legend. Like the Vatican representatives with whom they worked, the Red Cross found itself unable to indulge in the irresponsible charges of genocide which had become the order of the day. So far as the genuine mortality rate is concerned, the Report points out that most of the Jewish doctors from the camps were being used to combat typhus on the eastern front, so that they were unavailable when the typhus epidemics of 1945 broke out in the camps (Vol. I, p. 204 ff) - Incidentally, it is frequently claimed that mass executions were carried out in gas chambers cunningly disguised as shower facilities. Again the Report makes nonsense of this allegation. "Not only the washing places, but installations for baths, showers and laundry were inspected by the delegates. They had often to take action to have fixtures made less primitive, and to get them repaired or enlarged" (Vol. III, p. 594).
Not All were Interned
Volume III of the Red Cross Report, Chapter 3 (I. Jewish Civilian Population) deals with the "aid given to the Jewish section of the free population," and this chapter makes it quite plain that by no means all of the European Jews were placed in internment camps, but remained, subject to certain restrictions, as part of the free civilian population. This conflicts directly with the "thoroughness" of the supposed "extermination programme", and with the claim in the forged Höss memoirs that Eichmann was obsessed with seizing "every single Jew he could lay his hands on."
In Slovakia, for example, where Eichmann's assistant Dieter Wisliceny was in charge, the Report states that "A large proportion of the Jewish minority had permission to stay in the country, and at certain periods Slovakia was looked upon as a comparative haven of refuge for Jews, especially for those coming from Poland. Those who remained in Slovakia seem to have been in comparative safety until the end of August 1944, when a rising against the German forces took place. While it is true that the law of May 15th, 1942 had brought about the internment of several thousand Jews, these people were held in camps where the conditions of food and lodging were tolerable, and where the internees were allowed to do paid work on terms almost equal to those of the free labour market" (Vol. I, p. 646). . .

Conspirator's HIERARCHY: The Story of the Committee of 300
Our editorial to Newsletter 582 stated: "If one knows what is really happening one knows what is going to happen. Our duty to ourselves is to "prove all things" so that we are informed and understand what is taking place behind the scenes . . . what Satan and his children are doing nowin the secular world and in the world church system. Our main article shines Light upon "wickedness in high places," exposing the reality of Lucifer's conspiracy for totalitarian one world government and the duplicity of respected identities in past, present and unfolding history." We suggested you buy, borrow or read Dr. John Coleman's book, "Conspirator's HIERARCHY: The Story of the Committee of 300," on-line.
Newsletter 583 mentioned several goals allegedly discussed last month at the Bilderberger convention. These same goals are identified in the following extract from Dr. Coleman's book in which he states: "Much of these goals, which I first enumerated in 1969, have since been achieved or are well on their way to being achieved." I believe you will recognize them as current news, confirming history is not happenstance: history is pre-planned.
In the Committee of 300, which has a 150-year history, we have some of the most brilliant intellects assembled to form a completely totalitarian, absolutely controlled "new" society only it isn't new, having drawn most of its ideas from the Clubs of Cultus Diabolicus. It strives toward a One World Government rather well described by one of its late members, H. G. Wells, in his work commissioned by the Committee which Wells boldly called: "The Open Conspiracy: Plans for a World Revolution."
It was a bold statement of intent, but not really so bold since nobody believed Wells except the Great Superior Ones, the Anenherbes and those who were what we would call "insiders" today. Here is an extract of what Wells proposed:
"The Open Conspiracy will appear first, I believe as a conscious organization of intelligent, and in some cases wealthy men, as a movement having distinct social and political aims, confessedly ignoring most of the existing apparatus of political control, or using it only as an incidental implement in the stages, a mere movement of a number of people in a certain direction, who will presently discover, with a sort of a surprise, the common object toward which they are all moving. In all sorts of ways, they will be influencing and controlling the ostensible government."
Like George Orwell's "1984", Wells' account is a mass-appeal for a One World Government. Summarized, the intent and purpose of the Committee of 300 is to bring to pass the following conditions:
A One World Government and one-unit monetary system under permanent non-elected hereditary oligarchists who self-select from among their numbers in the form of a feudal system as it was in the Middle Ages. In this One World entity, population will be limited by restrictions on the number of children per family, diseases, wars, famines, until 1 billion people who are useful to the ruling class, in areas which will be strictly and clearly defined, remain as the total world population.
There will be no middle class, only rulers and servants. All laws will be uniform under a legal system of world courts practicing the same unified code of laws, backed up by a One World Government police force and a One World unified military to enforce laws in all former countries where no national boundaries shall exist. The system will be on the basis of a welfare state; those who are obedient and subservient to the One World Government will be rewarded with the means to live; those who are rebellious will simply be starved to death or be declared outlaws, thus a target for anyone who wishes to kill them. Privately owned firearms or weapons of any kind will be prohibited.
Only one religion will be allowed and that will be in the form of a One World Government Church, which has been in existence since 1920, as we shall see. Satanism, Luciferianism and Witchcraft shall he recognized as legitimate One World Government curricula with no private or church schools. All Christian churches have already been subverted and Christianity will be a thing of the past in the One World Government.
To induce a state where there is no individual freedom or any concept of liberty surviving, there shall be no such thing as republicanism, sovereignty or rights residing with the people. National pride and racial identity shall be stamped out and in the transition phase it shall be subject to the severest penalties to even mention one's racial origin.
Each person shall be fully indoctrinated that he or she is a creature of the One World Government with an identification number clearly marked on their person so as to be readily accessible, which identifying number shall be in the master file of the NATO computer in Brussels, Belgium, subject to instant retrieval by any agency of the One World Government at any time. The master Files of the CIA, FBI, state and local police agencies, IRS, FEMA, Social Security shall be vastly expanded and form the basis of personal records of all individuals in the United States.
Marriage shall be outlawed and there shall be no family life as we know it. Children will be removed from their parents at an early age and brought up by wards as state property. Such an experiment was carried out in East Germany under Erich Honnecker when children were taken away from parents considered by the state to be disloyal citizens. Women will he degraded through the continued process of "women's liberation" movements. Free sex shall be mandatory.
Failure to comply at least once by the age of 20 shall be punishable by severe reprisals against her person. Self-abortion shall be taught and practiced after two children are born to a woman; such records shall be contained in the personal file of each woman in the One World Government's regional computers. If a woman falls pregnant after she has previously given birth to two children, she shall be forcibly removed to an abortion clinic for such an abortion and sterilization to be carried out.
Pornography shall be promoted and be compulsory showing in every theater of cinema, including homosexual and lesbian pornography. The use of "recreational" drugs shall be compulsory, with each person allotted drug quotas which can be purchased at One World Government stores throughout the world.
Mind control drugs will be expanded and usage become compulsory. Such mind control drugs shall be given in food and/or water supplies without the knowledge and/or consent of the people. Drug bars shall be set up, run by One World Government employees, where the slave-class shall be able to spend their free time. In this manner the non-elite masses will be reduced to the level and behavior of controlled animals with no will of their own and easily regimented and controlled.
The economic system shall be based upon the ruling oligarchical class allowing just enough foods and services to be produced to keep the mass slave labor camps going. All wealth shall be aggregated in the hands of the elite members of the Committee of 300. Each individual shall be indoctrinated to understand that he or she is totally dependent upon the state for survival. The world shall be ruled by Committee of 300 Executive Decrees which become instant law. Boris Yeltsin is using Committee of 300 decrees to impose the Committee's will on Russia as a trial run. Courts of punishment and not courts of justice shall exist.
Industry is to be totally destroyed along with nuclear powered energy systems. Only the Committee of 300 members and their elitists shall have the right to any of the earth's resources. Agriculture shall be solely in the hands of the Committee of 300 with food production strictly controlled. As these measures begin to take effect, large populations in the cities shall be forcibly removed to remote areas and those who refuse to go shall be exterminated in the manner of the One World Government experiment carried out by Pol Pot in Cambodia.
Euthanasia for the terminally ill and the aged shall be compulsory. No cities shall be larger than a predetermined number as described in the work of Kalgeri. Essential workers will be moved to other cities if the one they are in becomes overpopulated. Other non-essential workers will be chosen at random and sent to underpopulated cities to fill "quotas."
At least 4 billion "useless eaters" shall be eliminated by the year 2050 by means of limited wars, organized epidemics of fatal rapid-acting diseases and starvation. Energy, food and water shall be kept at subsistence levels for the non-elite, starting with the White populations of Western Europe and North America and then spreading to other races. The population of Canada, Western Europe and the United States will be decimated more rapidly than on other continents, until the world's population reaches a manageable level of 1 billion, of which 500 million will consist of Chinese and Japanese races, selected because they are people who have been regimented for centuries and who are accustomed to obeying authority without question.
From time to time there shall be artificially contrived food and water shortages and medical care to remind the masses that their very existence depends on the goodwill of the Committee of 300.
After the destruction of housing, auto, steel and heavy goods industries, there shall be limited housing, and industries of any kind allowed to remain shall be under the direction of NATO's Club of Rome as shall all scientific and space exploration development, limited to the elite under the control of the Committee of 300. Space weapons of all former nations shall be destroyed along with nuclear weapons.
All essential and non-essential pharmaceutical products, doctors, dentists and health care workers will be registered in the central computer data bank and no medicine or medical care will he prescribed without express permission of regional controllers responsible for each city, town and village.
The United States will be flooded by peoples of alien cultures who will eventually overwhelm White America, people with no concept of what the United States Constitution stands for and who will, in consequence, do nothing to defend it, and in whose minds the concept of liberty and justice is so weak as to matter little. FOOD and shelter shall be the main concern.
No central bank save the Bank of International Settlement and the World Bank shall be allowed to operate. Private banks will be outlawed. Remuneration for work performed shall be under a uniform predetermined scale throughout the One World Government. There shall be no wage disputes allowed, nor any diversion from the standard uniform scales of pay laid down by the One World Government. Those who break the law will be instantly executed.
There shall be no cash or coinage in the hands of the non-elite. All transactions shall be carried out by means of a debit card which shall bear the identification number of the holder. Any person who in any way infringes the rules and regulations of the Committee of 300 shall have the use of his or her card suspended for varying times according to the nature and severity of the infringement.
Such persons will find, when they go to make purchases, that their card is blacklisted and they will not be able to obtain services of any kind. Attempts to trade "old" coins, that is to say silver coins of previous and now defunct nations, shall be treated as a capital crime subject to the death penalty. All such coinage shall be required to be surrendered within a given time along with guns, rifles, explosives and automobiles. Only the elite and One World Government high-ranking functionaries will be allowed private transport, weapons, coinage and automobiles.
If the offense is a serious one, the card will be seized at the checking point where it is presented. Thereafter, that person shall not be able to obtain food, water, shelter and employment medical services, and shall be officially listed as an outlaw.
Large bands of outlaws will thus be created and they will live in regions that best afford subsistence, subject to being hunted down and shot on sight. Persons assisting outlaws in any way whatsoever shall likewise be shot. Outlaws, who fail to surrender to the police or military after a declared period of time, shall have a former family member selected at random to serve prison terms in their stead.
Rival factions and groups such as Arabs and Jews and African tribes shall have differences magnified and will be allowed to wage wars of extermination against each other under the eyes of NATO and U.N. observers. The same tactics will be used in Central and South America. These wars of attrition shall take place BEFORE the take-over of the One World Government and shall be engineered on every continent where large groups of people with ethnic and religious differences live, such as the Sikhs, Moslem Pakistanis and the Hindu Indians. Ethnic and religious differences shall be magnified and exacerbated and violent conflict as a means of "settling" their differences shall be encouraged and fostered.
All information services and print media shall be under the control of the One World Government. Regular brainwashing control measures shall be passed off as "entertainment" in the manner in which it was practiced and became a fine art in the United States. Youths removed from "disloyal parents," shall receive special education designed to brutalize them. Youth of both sexes shall receive training to qualify as prison guards for the One World labor camp system. . . (Dr. John Coleman, Conspirator's HIERARCHY: The Story of the Committee of 300, p. 161-166).
Predestinated unto the Adoption of Sons by Jesus Christ to Himself Part II
Introducing himself as "an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God," Paul wrote "to the saints who are at Ephesus, and [also] to the faithful in Christ Jesus"saints such as yourself, who although not at Ephesus, would read his letter to the Ephesian saints. The appellation "saints" designates not merely a hoped for goal but an existing relationship into which the individual has been placed and irrevocably established (Ephesians 4:30), is (continually) washed by revelation of the Word made blood and renewed by the Spirit whereby he is separated from the world and consecrated to God (Ephesians 1:1).
Paul was writing to individuals who had been called according to God's eternal purpose, predestinated to glory according to His foreknowledge, renewed by His Spirit having received His call, adopted or placed in their unique position in the Body, and transformed into written epistles of what Peter called the "present Truth." So we see that Spiritual adoption is quite different to natural adoption. Whereas the latter is a term in man-made law for the act of creating the legal relationship of parent and child when it did not exist naturally, God's national adoption of Israel and His Spiritual adoption of the Church is the outworking of His immutable foreknowledge placing elect individuals into their position in His eternal Word as it unfolds into time and matter, fulfilling the purpose of His will by gathering glory to Him, and as part of His glory is itself glorified.
Romans 11:36, "For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever! Amen".
Spiritual adoption places the elect individual into God's Word and places or manifests His Word in time and matter as the inspired letter engraved in Paul's heart unfolds and is transformed into Living Bibles of the lives of God's elect whereby it is "known and read by all men," sinner or saint, "their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the meanwhile accusing or else excusing one another" (Romans 2:15).
National adoption, the relationship God was pleased to establish between Himself and natural Israel in preference to all other nations, was not inclusive of every one born of the sexual union of an Israelite man and wife, for non-Israelites were also adopted into the nation and became partakers of the Covenants of promise since the promise was by grace through faith, not by good deeds or works of the Law. The Israel nation will ultimately consist exclusively of an election of individuals foreknown and placed by God; among them will be many non-Israelites by birth such as Moses' Hamitic wife and generations of proselytes prior to those who attended the feast in Jerusalem on the birth day of the Christian Church (Acts 2:9-11). Most of the Old Testament saints were non-Semitic Gentiles: Adam, Noah, Shem, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Ruth and Joseph's Hamitic wife Asenath were certainly not Israelites, and all but two of the adults who set forth on the exodus were blotted from the Book of Life when they blasphemed the Spirit at Kadesh "For they are not all Israel, who are of Israel" (Exodus 32:33; Psalm 95:10-11; John 6:49; Hebrews 3:15-19; 6:4-8; Romans 9:6). The Covenant of Law that binds the nation until the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week is of no effect outside the Promised Land, so it is clearly spiritual insanity and a virtual death wish for anyone to impersonate or desire to be a natural Israelite so long as the Gentile dispensation of unmerited favour is open to "whomsoever" of Adam's race will receive it, else they too are rejecting the Spirit!
By natural descent every child of Adam is a child of God (Luke 3:38; Job 1:6), but He recognizes as His very own Sons only an election, foreknown, chosen from the foundation of the world, born of His Spirit and adopted or placed in authority because they are proven to reflect the likeness of His Character. While it is true that until the Good News was published on the day of Pentecost "we [Gentiles] were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the Covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world" (Ephesians 2:12), nonetheless Christians predestinated to adoption from the foundation of the world were Sons, yet they could not be placed or recognized as Sons until the grace of Calvary was preached that they might receive the Spirit of adoption and new birth by faith (Romans 8:15; I John 3:2).
Jesus Messiah was the last Adam, He was not the last Shem, and so an Israelite who is not filled with the Spirit of Christ is no different to any man in Adam's race: not elect, and "not Israel." I Peter 1:9-12, "As the outcome of your faith you obtain the salvation of your souls. About this salvation the [Israelite] prophets who prophesied of the grace intended for you [Gentiles] diligently inquired and researched to find out to whom or to what time the Spirit of Christ which was within them pointed, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you [Gentiles], in the things which have now been announced to you by those who have preached the Good News to you through the Holy Ghost sent from heaven; things into which the angels [or ministers] desire to look into".
There are two classes of people: those who have the Seal of God and those who have the mark of the beast. The Seal of God is the baptism with the Holy Ghost, which is the new birth and adoption. To reject the Spirit, which is the unforgivable sin, is to have the mark of the beast, which is the mark of apostasy. Jewish cults in sheep's clothing claim that the Seal of God is observing the sabbath day commanded to Israel alone. Yet no Israelite can observe the sabbath outside Palestine, where even the Covenant of the Law is of no effect. Paul said, "you were Sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise after you believed [the Gospel] . . . whereby you are Sealed unto the day of your redemption [or full adoption]" NOT by observing "the sabbath days, which are a shadow of things to come" (Acts 2:38; 19:2; Ephesians 1:13; 4:30; Colossians 2:16-17; Galatians 4). Israelites have observed their sabbath day since Sinai yet neither Moses nor any elect was Sealed by the Spirit of promise under their conditional Covenant of works. And in all the pages of the Bible there is no record of Christians observing the sabbath or any special day. An Israelite is but a member of God's servant nation and may be dismissed at any time despite observing a sabbath day, as the whole nation has been under Gentile rule since 606BC and dismissed from God's Presence since Calvary. Christians on the other hand, whether they be individual Israelites or Gentiles, "are Sons, and because we are Sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, Abba, Father" (Galatians 4:6).
John 1:11-13, "Jesus Messiah came to Israel, and His own received Him not. But as many [in Adam's race] as received Him, to them He gave authority [by grace through faith in the revealed Word for their day] to become the Sons of God, that is, to those who believe in His Name: who owe their new birth neither to human blood nor to physical urge, nor to human design, (as the British Israelite/Christian Identity people mistakenly claim), but to God," as Paul was "an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God" (Ephesians 1:1).
In 1963 Jesus Messiah came to Christendom but those who claimed to be "His own received Him not": since then He has been knocking on church doors. God is no respecter of persons and as He never changes His ways, the Old Testament is a type of the New. The elders who followed Moses out of Egypt were justified under the Cloud and baptized in the Red Sea, they ate bread from heaven, drank water from the rock and were sanctified by forty years of wilderness wandering, kept the sabbath; but unbelief prevented their adoption or placement naturally in the Promised Land or Spiritually in God and they are LOST (I Corinthians 10:1-11; Hebrews 3:15-19). The generation that followed Brother Branham out of Laodicea was also justified, sanctified and partook of God's miracles, but has wandered in a Spiritual wilderness quoting the "letter" of what the tapes say without entering into Christ, and will perish in the tribulation.
The Laodicean saints like many of Moses' followers such as Miriam, Aaron and Hur who were no doubt saints, will receive their inheritance via the grave because their part of the Body was not predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word as required of Christ's end-time Bride who will manifest that they are the Sons of God when God honours their spoken Word in the 'third pull'.
We are now in the third exodus. In the first exodus the Pillar of Fire led Israel out from Egyptian bondage, in the second exodus the Pillar of Fire led the Church out from bondage to the Law, and in the third exodus the Pillar of Fire is leading the Bride out from bondage to the world church system. Moses was a perfect type of the church organization that failed God: when he smote the Rock a second time instead of speaking the Word, he took glory to himself. And when Laodicea clung to its substitute creeds instead of receiving the Spoken Word of God's end-time Message it crucified Christ afresh (Hebrews 6:4-6; Revelation 3:20). As Moses led the children of Israel to their inheritance and saw the land from Mount Nebo but did not enter, Brother Branham led the saints to their inheritance, saw the land beyond the river but did not enter and was gathered to his people.
Joshua was the new leader who took Israel across the river and placed the tribes in their inheritance in the Promised Land. Joshua types our new Leader, the Son of man, who led us over the breach of Revelation 4 and 5, as illustrated on the diagram below, into the Capstone after Laodicea and the death of Brother Branham who defined the inheritance of the Church Age saints (Revelation 3-4).
Joshua 1:1-9, "Now after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord it came to pass, that the Lord said to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, Moses My servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, you, and this whole nation of Israel, into the land which I give them. Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread I have given you, as I said to Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, even to the great Western sea. No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life: as I was with Moses, I will be with you: I will never fail you, nor will I forsake you."
"Be strong and of a good courage: for you will cause this people to inherit the land which I vowed to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the Law which Moses My servant commanded you: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper everywhere you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth; but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may be careful to do according to all that is written therein: for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be dismayed: for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go".
After Moses died, Joshua and Caleb led the saints to their inheritance. Joshua types the Holy Spirit who was with Brother Branham in the office of Son of man in his Elijah ministry. Brother Branham said, "The Elijah of this day is the Lord Jesus Christ. He is to come according to Luke 17:30. The Son of man is to reveal Himself among His people: not a man, God. But it'll come through a prophet" (Trying to do God a Service without His Will, p. 33:212). Like Jesus, Joshua's name means "Jehovah Saviour"; he was true to the Message of the Prophet Moses, revealing what his "tapes" said, and he kept the Token on display. Caleb, who faithfully obeyed in all Joshua commanded, types Christ's end-time Bride as we follow our new Leader, Christ, the Son of man. And as we will see, the Book of Ephesians parallels the Book of Joshua.
Canaan, where there were wars and the placing of the tribes in their inheritance, types neither the Millennium nor heaven. Canaan types the dispensation of the fullness of times (or Church Ages) after Laodicea in this present holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the antitype of the Pentecostal feast (Ephesians 1:10). This is the dispensation of "full adoption" in which the end-time Bride is "coming into the unity of the faith . . . for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the first resurrection" when together with the Church Age saints we will be gathered into Christ "in whom we too have obtained an inheritance, foreordained according to the purpose of God who accomplishes all things after the counsel of His own will: that we who first trusted in Christ should bring praise to His glory. In Him you also, after listening and recognizing your day and its Message, have as believers in Him been sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, which is the guarantee of our inheritance until the "full adoption," which is the redemption of our body in glorified form, to the praise of His glory" (Ephesians 1:11-14).
So Canaan types our time of overcoming by the Holy Spirit to take our rightful inheritance as we "took the Book out of the hand of the Angel [Christ, the Son on Man who stood upon the sea and upon the earth], saying "Give me the little Book," which is the Title Deed to all that Adam forfeited (Revelation 10:8-11). The Son of man ministry placed our inheritance as defined in An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages and The Revelation of the Seven Seals. Now since we know our place is in the Capstone of the Body we will not trespass the inheritance received centuries ago by the Lutheran, Presbyterian and Anglican saints; usurp the bequest the Methodists and Baptists entered last century, or the inheritance allotted to the Pentecostals which they are entering via the grave. We must "be strong and very courageous" with the Token on display, holding the Sword of the revealed Word in the strong hand of faith at the throat of the enemyin particular the worldly nature on our mortal spirit and corruptible flesh for there is a war in heaven, and very soon Satan will be cast down to earth with his earthly angels [as their names are removed from the Book of Life] to fight Christ's end-time Bride.
As we are all one baptized into one Body, the sleeping PART-Word saints cannot be perfected, or glorified without us. They are waiting for you and me to have the Token on display and find that last elect (I Corinthians 12:13; Hebrews 11:39-41). Paul wrote, "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ" (Ephesians 1:3). "Heavenly places" is the believer's position in Christ, and as the above diagram shows, the Body is divided into nine places: below the breach between the Ages of PART-Word and the revelation of the Seven Seals"that which is perfect" (I Corinthians 13:10)are Alpha or Pentecost where the saints received the Word of God, pure and undefiled, and seven Church Ages of PART-Word mixed with human reasoning; above the breach is the Omega dispensation, this present holy convocation in which the apostolic Alpha faith has been restored (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11) and the mystery of God is finished (Revelation 10:7).
The revelation of the Seven Seals enable Christ's end-time Bride to be adopted into her place, sealing the Breach between the PART-Word saints by joining Christ our Head to His Body incarnate in the Capstone Bride. This perfect Body will be waved for acceptation as two loaves baked with leaven at the manifestation of the Sons of God and first resurrection (Leviticus 23:15-21; John 17:21-26; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 13:10; 15:46-57). Christ's mediation for the PART-Word saints ignorance of the fullness of the Word "was done away" when the last member of the Seventh Church Age was baptized into the Body prior to the revelation of the Seals. Since the Capstone is joined to the Body by a perfect revelation of the Word there is no longer any breach between the Church Age saints and Christ's end-time Bride. However without the revelation of the Seals "there is a great gulf fixed: so that denominational believers cannot pass [from the world church system into Christ]" as Lazarus could not pass from Paradise to the rich man in torment, nor the rich man to Lazarus (Luke 16:26).
In essence your inheritance and sonship were determined before the foundation of the world when the self-existent God alone with His thoughts placed your name in the Lamb's Book of Life. He foresaw you as part of the Logos crucified in the Logos when in the fullness of time Jesus was born by the virgin and paid sin's price as your Kinsman Redeemer (Revelation 13:8). Ephesians 1:4-7, "God has chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless in His Presence. In love He predestined us in Jesus Christ to be His Sons, according to the kind intent of His will, to the praise of His glorious grace with which He has freely favoured us in union with the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His Blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace".
Our inheritance is God choosing us in Him and predestinating Jesus Christ to take our sins upon His shoulders and shed His Blood that we should have no condemnation, and say without "please" or "thank you," "Give me the little Book!" It is all of grace so that "if [the unredeemed] willfully sin [or disbelieve the revealed Word] after they have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries" (Romans 8:1; Hebrews 10:26-27).
Your inheritance is predestinated by God: your name can never be removed from the Lamb's Book of Life, and you will be adopted or placed because you are predestinated to eternal Life. Heavens and earth will pass away, or change, but your name will remain. Brother Branham said, "You think cancer is something? The Bible said there's coming a time when men will rot right in their flesh, and the buzzards will eat off of carcasses before they even die. Cancer's a toothache to what's a coming. But, remember, that horrible thing was forbidden in that day to touch those who had the Seal of God. That's what we're striving for now, to get in and be positionally placed into the Kingdom of God before these horrible plagues strike" (Adoption Part IV, p. 115:88).
Our hope is anchored on faith, which is the mind of God in you by a clear understanding of His revealed Word. Paul prayed for us in this dispensation of adoption "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him." The ministry of the seventh angel revealed the mystery of the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals that have restored the apostolic faith and finished the mystery of God. His exposition of Genesis 14, Ephesians 1 and Hebrews 7 declare Christ is the mystery of God revealed in virgin-born flesh, and the Bride of all Ages is the mystery of Christ revealed in a many-membered Body, proving: "Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and dies, it abides alone: but if it dies, it brings forth much fruit."
This spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him has "flooded our hearts with Light to know the hope to which we are called, and what are the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints" (Ephesians 1:19). Paul went on to explain how the same resurrection power that in response to His faith, raised Jesus from death to eternal Life and translated Him to the right hand of God on high, will respond to our faith, raising those who have fallen asleep and changing "we who are alive and remain" into glorified bodies like His own glorious body, only without death. This is "full adoption," for we are predestinated unto the adoption of Sons by Jesus Christ to God Himself. nl584.htm
