October 19, 2010 Last Sunday a new banner was lowered from the window of the papal Apostolic Palace on which was depicted a coat of arms in which the miter above the shield was replaced by the tiara.
The tiara is not a liturgical headdress, but rather a sign of sovereign power the Pope exercises in his dual capacity as supreme head of the Church and sovereign of the Papal States. The need to symbolize the unity of these two powers certainly influenced the evolution of the tiara. It is possible that the importance of the temporal power was the first motive of creating a crown so majestic, but today the specific symbolism of the tiara is the supreme position of the Pope over the universal Church, and this would remain intact even if the temporal power should once again cease entirely. . .

Comment: The Triple Crown signifies the pope's dominion of heaven, earth and purgatory and one suspects Rome may be hinting at her soon-coming temporal dominion.
Thinking Straight about Israel, the Jews and the Archbishop
October 27, 2010 The only storyline that's had any traction in the American press [to the close of the October 10-24 Synod of Bishops for the Middle East] is Israeli and Jewish backlash to a comment by one synod participant in the closing press conference on Saturday.
Asked to clarify what this passage meant, Archbishop Bustros responded that Christians cannot speak of a specific "promised land," because Jesus Christ had come to establish the Kingdom of God in the world and to make all who follow Him His "chosen ones."
That means, Archbishop Bustros explained, that the idea of the "the promised land cannot be used as a base for the justification of the return of Jews to Israel and the displacement of Palestinians." He added: "Sacred Scripture should not be used to justify the occupation by Israel of Palestine". . . Full story: catholic.org
Yes indeed, show Us all the Map!
October 16, 2010 Better late than never, a senior Palestinian official in Ramallah, Yasser Abed Rabbo, found the right way to challenge Israel and the US. As reported by AFP on 13 October, he said, 'We officially demand that the US administration and the Israeli government provide a map of the borders of the state of Israel which they want us to recognize.'
That's a completely logical and totally reasonable demand.
IF Israel was interested in peace on terms virtually all Palestinians and most other Arabs and Muslims everywhere could accept, the map provided would show Israel with borders as they were on the eve of the 1967 war. An accompanying note would say that, subject to agreement in final negotiations, Israel seeks minor border adjustments here and there. The note would also propose that Jerusalem should be an open, undivided city and the capital of two states.
If such a map with the note as above was presented, it would open the door to peace.
But the implementation of such land-for-peace deal would require the IDF to confront and forcibly remove illegal Jewish settlers who refused to leave; and that would open the door to a Jewish civil warthe price Israel's Jews would have to pay for 62 years of contempt for and defiance of international law.
Of course it won't happen . . . why not was explained to me as far back as I980 by Shimon Peres. . . 'Every day that passes sees new bricks on new settlements. Begin knows exactly what he's doing. He's stuffing the West Bank with settlers to create the conditions for a Jewish civil war. He knows that no Israeli prime minister is going down in history as the one who gave the order to the Jewish army to shoot Jews out of the West Bank'. . . 'I'm not.'
When Peres spoke those words to me there were 70,000 illegal Jewish settlers on the occupied West Bank. If it was 'too late' then, in 1980, how much more too late is it today when the number of illegal Jewish settlers is in excess of 500,000 and rising on a daily basis?
So no, there won't be a Jewish civil war because no Israeli prime minister is ever going to risk provoking it. So there will be no map. (I mean not one that could come even close to satisfying the Palestinian demand and need). Yasser Abed Rabbo knew that when he put the demand into words . . . Full story: veteranstoday.com
Comment: This is a further factor why the dividing of the Mount of Olives resulting in the destruction of the Dome of the Rock will ignite the 'hot stage' of World War III.
The Map is on Their Money
October 21, 2010 The back of Israel's 10 Shekel coin proudly displays their map of 'Greater Israel.' That is the Herzl/Zionist map of everything from the Nile River to the Tigris and Euphrates. Palestine/Israel is a small sliver on the left side of their Greater Israel. As most thinking people know and those who have a clear understanding of the Bible and theology, there is no historical basis whatsoever for the claim that they are entitled to everything between those two rivers as signified by the two blue bands either side of Rothschild's occult family crest on Israel's flag.

Comment: Not having their own currency the Palestinians must suffer this affront while the Western world conducts the hypocritical charade of 'peace' talks with Israel. And the apostate church is blind (Revelation 3:17-20).
British Prime Minister Lloyd George condemned the opponents of the Balfour Declaration for suggesting that the Zionist leaders were seeking to establish, "a Jewish oligarchy in Palestine that will reduce the Arab inhabitant to a condition of servitude to a favoured Hebrew minority".
The World Zionist Association wrote to the League of Nations: "The Jews demand no privilege, unless it is the privilege of rebuilding by their own efforts and sacrifices a land which, once the seat of a thriving and productive civilization, has long been suffered to remain derelict. They expect no favoured treatment in the matter of political or religious rights. They assume, as a matter of course, that all the inhabitants of Palestine, be they Jews or non-Jews, will be in every respect on a footing of perfect equality. They seek no share in the Government beyond that to which they may be entitled under the Constitution as citizens of the country. They solicit no favours. They ask, in short, no more than an assured opportunity of peacefully building up their National Home by their own exertions and of succeeding on their merits" (David Lloyd George, Is It Peace? (1923) p. 246-253).
President Chaim Herzog of Israel said the Arabs cannot be, "participants in any way in a land that has been consecrated to our people for thousands of years. To the Jews of this land there cannot be any partner" (Noam Chomsky, Letters From Lexington (1990) p. 3). This is the real historic reason why.
In his last speech to the Knesset on October 5, 1995, Yitzhak Rabin defied the Peres/Oslo "peace" process declaring, "We will not return to the 4 June 1967 lines . . . First and foremost, united Jerusalem . . . as the capital of Israel, under Israeli sovereignty. The security border of the State of Israel will be located in the Jordan Valley. . . The establishment of blocs of settlements in Judea and Samaria, like the one in Gush Katif." Mordechai Vanunu speaks on Israel's nuclear blackmail.
German Bid at Multi-cultural Society has failed: Merkel
October 16, 2010 Germany's attempts to create a multi-cultural society in which people from various cultural backgrounds live together peacefully have failed, Chancellor Angela Merkel said Saturday. "This approach has failed, totally". . . Jewish leaders in Germany meanwhile warned that German society and democracy were under threat from extremists.
A recent expert study . . . by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation think tank, showed that more than one third (34.3 percent) of those surveyed believed Germany's 16 million immigrants or people with foreign origins came to the country for the social benefits. Around the same number (35.6 percent) think Germany is being "over-run by foreigners" . . . The integration of Muslims has been a hot button issue since August when a member of Germany's central bank sparked outrage by saying the country was being made "more stupid" by poorly educated and unproductive Muslim migrants with headscarves. . .

Watch the New Madrid Fault'Fluid Displacement'
May 6, 2010 The Midwest United States along with its East Coast is at high risk to earthquakes due to unsettled fault zones, as a result of 'Katrina'-like floods occurring in at least five states. Those areas at risk are Missouri, Iowa, Wisconsin, Indiana and Illinois. The Mississippi and other rivers across the upper Midwest have overrun their banks in recent days.
Note: 'Fluid Displacement' occurs in polarized ways. This is to saywhen fluid is increased such as in the record-breaking floods along the Mississippi river, pressure is "added" to tectonic plates causing them to shift. When fluid is removed or decreasedsuch as tons of oil leaving Earth's mantle due to a man-made bored hole, this reduces pressure on tectonic plates which also causing them to shift. (Images of weathered BP oil in bays near Southwest Pass, Louisiana, the main shipping channel of the Mississippi River. Toxicologist Riki Ott speaks on the BP oil spill and its long term effects).
The New Madrid Fault is prone to mega-quakes. Earthquakes so large, it caused the Mississippi to run backwards . . . that's right, the largest river in the United States ran backwards. The New Madrid zone had four of the largest North American earthquakes in recorded history, with moment magnitudes estimated to be as large as 8.0, all occurring within a three-month period between December 1811 and February 1812.
Fluid (oil) gushing out not far from the mouth of the Mississippi, and record floods occurring up-river along longitude meridians, has geologists pouring over possible seismic outcomes. No one knows for sure how this will unfold. As one geologist said when asked what might happen: "We don't knowit's never happened before." Full story: fourwinds10.com
Comment: Brother Branham prophesied, "Nations are breaking; the world is falling apart. Fifteen hundred mile chunk of it, three or four hundred miles wide, will sink hundredor maybe forty miles down into that great fault out yonder one of these days, and waves will shoot plumb out to the state of Kentucky. And when it does, it'll shake the world so hard that everything on top of it will shake down" (A Thinking Man's Filter, p. 25:145. Newsletter 212).
Earth Changes Media has moved Studio and Family [from Seattle] to Texas
September 13 2010 The US Northwest is known for its earthquake and volcano history. It is my belief the Northwest is in the cyclical period of very active earth changes activity. Scientific data suggests the Cascadia Subduction Zone is due (some have said over-due) to erupt. When this occurs, it is most likely to produce an earthquake of 9.0 mag. or larger. As a result of such intense activity, I speculate it will have a triggering effect lighting up two or more volcanoes along what is known as the Cascade Range which houses some 24 volcanoes.
Here is a list of the Cascade Range Volcanoes in alphabetical order. The ones in bold and most likely to have an eruption: Mount Adams, Mount Bachelor, Mount Bailey, Mount Baker, Battle Ground Lake, Beacon Rock, Belknap Shield Volcano, Boring Lava Field, Broken Top, Crater Lake, Diamond Peak, Glacier Peak, Mount Hood, Mount Jefferson, Lassen Peak, Lava Butte, Mount McLoughlin, Medicine Lake, Newberry, Pilot Butte, Mount Rainier, Mount St. Helens, Mount Shasta, Three-Fingered Jack, Three Sisters, Mount Thielsen, Mount Washington. . . Full story: fourwinds10.com
Comment: At the Cascadia subduction zone, an oceanic tectonic plate called the Juan de Fuca is pulled and driven (subducted) beneath the continental North American plate, setting up conditions for undersea "megathrust" earthquakes.
Tsunami are sometimes called tidal waves. They are more like tidal surges, and they soar upon reaching land. Tsunamis are the result of sudden rises or falls in a section of the earth's crust under or near the ocean, usually caused by earthquakes, volcanic activity or landslides. Earthquakes at subduction zones (rather than at other types of faults such as thrust faults) produce the highest energy tsunamis, especially when they occur in deep water. The seismic activity displaces sea water, creating a rise or fall in the level of the ocean above. This rise or fall in sea level initiates the formation of a tsunami wave. The wave's height increases in shallower water and can grow to 65 feet and more. "In the case of the Cascadia Subduction Zone, you could have an area of ocean floor that's 50 miles wide and 500 to 600 miles long suddenly snap back, causing a huge tsunami," Goldfinger said. "At the same time, we could expect some parts of the upper, or North American, plate to sink one to two meters. These are massive tectonic events. Subduction zones produce the most powerful earthquakes and tsunamis in the world."
Comment: Brother Branham said, "Sea roaring, big tidal waves washing away parts of cities and breaking upon the shores, just before the coming" (Pillar of Fire, #53-0509).
Veteran Suicides Outnumber US Military Deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan
October 22 2010 More than 1,000 veterans in California under 35 died after returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan between 2005 and 2008three times as many California service members as were killed in conflict overseas, according to a recently published Bay Citizen report.
Investigative journalist Aaron Glantz studied the cases of Reuben Paul Santos, Alex Lowenstein and Elijah Warren to shed light on a growing trend among Afghanistan and Iraq veterans who have died through high-risk behavior and suicide after being discharged. In particular, veterans who returned home to California died through motorcycle and motor vehicle accidents and unintentional poisoning; in addition, veterans were two and a half times as likely to commit suicide as Californians of the same age who had not served in the military. . .

October 27 is Climate Fools Day
October 25, 2010 The Carbon Sense Coalition today called on Australians and Americans to join the world in celebrating Climate Fools Day on October 27th. "As the first October snow in 70 years blanketed Westminster (and a big swathe of Europe), MP's droned on about the need to fight global warming. . ."
"The weather gods were the first to draw attention to the stupidity of the Climate Fools in Westminster. Weeks of icy weather froze the whole of Britain, wind turbines froze, solar panels were covered in snow, but coal, gas and nuclear power stations running at full power 24/7 averted calamity. Power lines broke, stopping electric trainson one line in Scotland the only train running was an old steam train burning coal."
"And ignoring the consensus predictions of global warming, a Snowy Owl, native of the Arctic Circle, arrived in Cornwall in December 2009, heralding another cold winter in which the sea froze on the Dorset coast. . .

Comment: 'Global warming' has brought snow to Australia in mid-Spring. And here's the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland, since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past FIVE YEARS to control CO2 emissions on our planetall of you. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing this crud at any one timeEVERY DAY. Is Iceland buying carbon offsets?
Of course you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppressit's that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.

Virginity Part II
Matthew 25:1, "The kingdom of heaven is likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps and went forth to meet the Bridegroom".
Song of Songs 2:1-2, "I Am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys." Metaphorically, Christ is the white and violet coloured meadow-saffron with a pungent bulb that grows in Sharon (5:10), the lowland between Mount Tabor and the fresh water Sea of Galilee, which is the second-lowest lake in the world. The lily is Christ's Bride in her rural simplicityit delights in the valleys and grows among the thornsbeauty, delicacy, and lowliness are in her as they were in Him (II Corinthians 8:9). "As the lily among thorns, so is My Beloved among the [non-elect] daughters" who are as thorns in comparison. By the law of contrast the Light of Christ shines most brightly amidst the thorns of this world.
How strange is God's husbandry! Instead of taking the lily into a conservatory, He leaves it out among the thorns which equate to the wicked (Genesis 6:1-4; II Samuel 23:6; Matthew 13:22; Hebrews 6:8). Like Jesus, His Bride is made a little lower than her theophany in order that in full bloom she might be proven to overcome the world and the things of the world by His Spirit and display the glory of His character. The same soil from which one nature can only extract the harsh astringent blackthorn with its cruel spines yields to another flexile leaves and balmy blossoms. So the Life of faith is not lived in the convent or in the sanctuary alone, but out of doors in the unsympathizing world, in the midst of secular men. From the same soil and atmosphere whence others derive repulsive attributes, the elect grow in grace and give forth excellence as their "Seed is the Word of God" (Luke 8:11; Matthew 7:15-20; 13:24). The same sunshine which elicits the balm of the lily matures in the blackthorn its verjuice; the same shower which makes thistles rank fills the lily cup with nectar, and clothes it in raiment eclipsing Solomon (Matthew 5:45).
The Spirit of God in Solomon is comparing the grace of chastity in Christ's Bride to the lily on account of its purity and fragrance, and sweetness and joyousness. For chastity is like a spring flower, always softly exhaling immortality from its white petals. Therefore Christ is not ashamed to confess that He loves the beauty of its highest quality of character: "You have ravished My heart, My sister, My spouse; you have stolen My heart with one adoring glance [recognizing the Word in mutual love at "the first or second admonition . . . for the eye is the light of the body" (John 10:1-5; Titus 3:9-11; Matthew 24:24; 6:22)]. . . How sweet is your love, My sister, My spouse! How much more delicious is your love than mere wine! And the fragrance of your anointing than all the richest spices! [How sweetly you speak], the words of your lips distil nectar, O Bride; honey and milk are under your tongue, the scent of your garments is like the fragrance of mount Lebanon. A garden enclosed is My sister, My spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed".
The garden and the spring being locked and sealed naturally indicate access is open only to the owner and possessor Himself. Shulamith designates her hidden charms first as her own garden, then as Solomon's: "Come, O north wind, awaken; come, south wind, blow upon my garden, let its fragrance be wafted abroad. Let my Beloved come into His garden, and eat its choicest fruits; they are His." In Proverbs 5:15-18 the figure of a spring is likewise applied to the natural relation between a wife and her wedded lord, so that she is represented as a fountain absolutely inaccessible to all men except her husband, and the right is his freely to enjoy and refresh himself with this spring is presupposed.
Christ proclaims these praises to those who become wise virgins to His Word, His spouse, the members of His Bride called by His Namenot Jehovah, Allah or Buddhabut LORD JESUS CHRIST (Philippians 2:9; I John 2:22). Moreover, we are undefiled by the traditions and intellectual reasonings of men, as a garden sealed in which all the odours of the fragrance of heaven are grown, that Christ alone may come and gather them, blooming with incorporeal seeds of faith in the Word of the hour. The Logos loves none of the things of this world, because His nature cannot be satisfied with the beauty of corruptible flesh, human personality or intellect; He sees the glorified form of His elect and delights in the beauty of the soul at one with His Word (Amos 3:3; John 17:20-26).
Hebrews 4:12, "The Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." As we now have the perfect interpretation of the Word, we must apply that Sword to diagnose our human condition by distinguishing the five senses of our body: see, feel, hear, taste and smell, from the five senses of our mortal spirit: memory, conscience, imagination, reasoning and affection, which are given to contact the world, and from the single sense of the soul: faith or doubt, and prescribe its cure. Since the Fall we are each born in sin, conceived in iniquity and come into the world speaking lies because Adam took Eve back to himself, forfeiting his dominion to Satan, who is the god of this evil age. As we are born through lust and his imparted knowledge rather than faith in God's Word we bear the nature of this world, and until the foolishness of preaching plants and waters the Seed of God's Word in our soul, quickening us to invisible union, we will be subject to the worldly propensities of our ten carnal senses. Do you see why "the carnal mind is enmity against God? It does not [and without faith] cannot submit to God's law; so those who are in the flesh cannot please God" (Romans 8:7-8; Hebrews 11:6)?
When you are born-again by a clear understanding of the present Truth revealing your place in the Word, the Holy Spirit kills that worldly nature or de facto former husband of your soul and unites you with your predestinated Husband, Christ the Word. However as a Spirit babe you must mature in the faith "until you are no longer a child, tossed to and fro, and carried by every wind of doctrine by the sleight of men and cunning craftiness, but grow up into the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ" (Ephesians 4:13-16).
This entails bringing the mortal spirit of your mind that governs your body into submission under Christ the new Husband of your soul. But old habits die hard, and the newborn Christian who does not apply the Sword of the Word to his life will stubbornly contend by intellectual reasoning, affection, memory and imagination against the revealed Word confirmed through six thousand years of Scripture and human history to serve the desires of his unregenerate flesh. Paul describes the conflict between flesh and mortal spirit and the soul (Romans 7; 8:12-13; I Peter 4:1-6).
Your flesh and mortal spirit will rebel, insisting your pastor lacks love, joy, peace, patience, or gentleness. Yet Jesus twice overturned the tables of the banksters (John 2:15), and cursed the fig tree which represented the unbelieving nation of Israel (Matthew 21:18), and coldly said, "You will always have the poor with you" (Matthew 26:11). The natural mind will ask, is that the fruit of the Spirit? Where are temperance, patience and charity? But Jesus spoke only what He heard from the Father, and did only what was shown by vision (John 3:32; 8:28-29).
I Corinthians 2:12-16, "Now we have received, not the spirit of [our old husband] the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us by God. The revelation of which we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Ghost teaches comparing Spiritual things with Spiritual. But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is Spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ".
That old husband is dead. Don't dig Him up by reviving your submission to him. Stop flirting with the world and bring your body and spirit subject to your Husband, the Word. Why would you want to take the easy path of worldly popularity as a "man pleaser" to sinners when you are commanded to "show yourself approved of God, by rightly dividing the Word"? Take the Sword of the Spirit in the strong hand of faith and excise that besetting sin by which you are serving your flesh and mortal spirit to please men when you are commanded to be separated to your Husband! "For what part has Christ with Belial, or what part has he who believes with an infidel" (II Corinthians 6:15)?
Cease compromising your virginity by trying to have one foot in the world, and one in the Word? "A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. . . Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double minded" (James 1:8; 4:8).
As the natural types the Spiritual the spirit of physical fornication is the very same spirit that lies in organized religion, which is idolatry, and all fornicators will have their place in the lake of Fire. "Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draws back, My soul shall have no pleasure in him. The mere association of kindhearted people with the true believer might well bring death in return for their kindness" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 116:1). Why? because like Esau their continual rejection of Christ the Word will bring them to that place of no more repentance. Revelation 18:3, "All nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies." Many of these are sleeping virgin who love the Lord, but being carnal thay are in fornication with the world.
Your mind is the womb of the spirit. If you yield your virginity out of wedlock by unfaithfulness to God's unchanging Word to serve your worldly senses in either the natural or the spiritual you will perish with the world. By desensitizing your soul to the Word and will of God you confirm Satan as your de facto husband and master spiritually speaking; like Eve you have cast aside innocence to receive carnal knowledge of good and evil. Those who abstain unto holy wedlock preserve their chastity evermore, "for two, said He, shall be one flesh" (I Corinthians 6:16).
The natural types the Spiritual, for our heavenly Bridegroom cannot marry our bodies, but is wooing our souls for holy union as virgins to His Word, and every one (Matthew 4:4). God's eternal mystery manifest in Jesus Christ is revealed to His Body as Christ made love to His Bride, whispering His secrets through Seven Church Agesjust to His Wife, not to the denominational flirters (Ephesians 1:3-14). "Come OUT of her, My people, lest you partake of her sins and share in her plagues.
II Corinthians 11:1-4, "I am jealous over you with godly jealousy, for I have espoused you to one Husband, that I may present you a chaste virgin to Christ. Yet I fear lest your virginity [in the revealed Word] should be corrupted by Satan's subtlety." I have led you beside still waters and caused you to lie down in green pastures, yet you want to trespass into Satan's spiritual desert of denominational reasoning! "I fear, lest as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ [through foolish questions, genealogies, contentions, and strivings about the Law, which are unprofitable and vain]. For if someone comes preaching another Jesus [whom they insist is not the Christ], one whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the One you received, or a gospel other than what you accepted, you readily submit to it".
Under the Old Covenant, which was a shadow of the New, a man who was suspicious of his wife but unable to produce witnesses or other evidence of her guilt would submit her to the ordeal of jealousy (Numbers 5:11-31). She was brought before the priest who wrote an imprecation on a tablet and washed the words into a vial or bowl of water, which the woman was made to drink and so become one with the curse. If she was undefiled she would remain fertile, but if she were guilty she would suffer the fatal effect of the curse. The Seven Vials of Revelation 16 are the antitype of the ordeal of jealousy which the non-elect church was made to endure at the conclusion of each Church Age to distinguish the foolish virgins from the adulterous false church. Brother Branham called this a temporary or investigation judgment. Virginity and chastity equate with cleanliness, sanctification and holiness, without which no man shall see God.
There is nothing new under the sun. History is not coincidental and haphazard but pre-planned and episodic. By way of illustration, World Wars I, II and III were planned in 1871 by the group that will be co-rulers of Lucifer's totalitarian one world government, and they rule our governments. The invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were planned years in advance of 9/11. And the destruction of the predominantly white Christian peoples by multiculturalism which is a repetition of the original sin Jesus Christ foretold in Matthew 24:37 (Genesis 6:1-4), was announced by Rabbi Emanuel Rabinovich before a special meeting of the Emergency Council of European Rabbis in Budapest on January 12, 1952 concerning progress towards their NWO. ". . . We will openly reveal our identity with the races of Asia and Africa. I can state with assurance that the last generation of white children is now being born. Our Control Commissions will, in the interests of peace and wiping out inter-racial tensions, forbid the whites to mate with whites. The white women must cohabit with members of the dark races, the white men with black women. Thus the white race will disappear, for mixing the dark with the white means the end of the white man, and our most dangerous enemy will become only a memory . . ."
Goyim are defenseless against this ongoing iniquity since governments worldwide have enacted racial hatred legislation that would criminalize not just physical acts of racial violence but indict anyone who made public statements that might cause offence to any minority such as homosexuals as a group, or the criminals executing this plan. This Machiavellian legislation in which truth is no defense was crafted by San Francisco lawyer Joseph Ribakoff for a competition sponsored by the ADL of B'nai B'rith. (He was subsequently suspended for misappropriating client funds). The selected politicians in our Hegelian sham democracies clearly represent the will of a faceless power far above "we the people" and the thesis proposes that not only must hate-motivated violence be banned, but also any words which stimulate: suspicion; friction; hate; and possible violence must also be criminalized and films censored (LJC93.doc; LJC93a.doc).
Adam was a spoken Word of God and could not be deceived on the revealed of God. Woman is a byproduct taken from his side years after creation was completed. She was not the Word, and is designed so she can deceive and be deceived. Webster's 1928 dictionary explains that the word 'woman' is a combination of the words, 'womb' and 'man.' Woman therefore means 'womb man' (the 'b' in womb being conspicuously silent) or 'man with a womb.' When God formed Eve, he put within her a womb, and although the life comes from the man only his 'wombman' can bring life into the world and fulfill the primordial commandment of Genesis 1:28.
Brother Branham said, "Marriage is the oldest institution in the world. Marriage was performed first, and instituted in the Garden of Eden. A woman is entrusted with certain characters that she must not defile. A woman is trusted to that. There's not a creature on the earth like a woman. There's no female dog; there's no female of any kind entrusted with a character that a woman is. A woman was not even in the beginning of the creation, because God knowed that she would fall. All other females could not commit adultery. She's the only one that can commit adultery. If she'd been made like the original, that would've been discomplementary to God's great wisdom. See, she was made a byproduct of a man; but because she was cast over in that side, she has also been given a sacred charge from God for redemption. (Isaiah 7:14; I Timothy 2:13-15).
She's got characters that she must not defile. If she would mar them, she's defiled for lifetime. No matter how much she's forgiven, she can't be justified. I'll strike that in a little bit. Got a Scripture on that in a few minutes. She can be forgiven for her defilement, but she cannot be justified in this life. It's always with her. Notice, now, she's been given this. She may be forgiven but not justified.
Her body is given to her a sacred trust from God. No female dog, no bird, no other animal, no other creature like that; no. She's the only one. By it she is the reason it's so sacred, she is to bring forth life into the earth. Her body is a bedding grounds of life. Therefore, that's the reason she's give this sacred trust" (The Invisible Union of the Bride of Christ, p. 12:5 13:1).
Throughout the animal kingdom the male is generally beautiful while the female is plain, but in the human race it is the woman who is beautiful while the man is plain. And whereas most female animals have relations only for reproduction, with woman it is for pleasure, and practically any time she desires. Since she is not original creation she is made so she can deceive and be deceived, and the educated modern miss is certainly deceived.
Satan's three temptations are the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life. Eve was beguiled by all three, and ministers of the Gospel are transformed from angels of Light to fallen angels by the same temptations in the form of money, women, and popularity. But when Jesus was tempted He parried with the Sword of the Spirit. The worldly modern miss thinks she is "cool" when she is in fact deceived by a Luciferian scheme planned over 200 years ago.
In "Proofs of a Conspiracy (1798)," John Robinson A.M., Professor of Natural Philosophy, and Secretary to the Royal Society of Edinburgh revealed the Illuminati conspiracy against all of the religions and governments of Europe. Their plans called for the liberation of women: "There is no way of influencing men so powerfully as by means of the women. These should therefore be our chief study; we should insinuate ourselves into their good opinion, give them hints of emancipation from the tyranny of public opinion and of standing up for themselves; it will be an immense relief to their enslaved minds to be freed from any one bond of restraint, and it will fire them more, and cause them to work for us with zeal, without knowing that they do so; for they will only be indulging their own desire of personal admiration".
In terms of destroying morality the Illuminati's plan stated: "Nothing tends so much to knit all the ties of society as the endearing connections of family, and whatever tends to lessen our veneration for the marriage contract, weakens them in the most effectual manner: Purity of manners is its most effectual support, and pure thoughts are the only sources from which pure manners can flow. I readily grant that this veneration for personal purity was carried to an extravagant height, and that several very ridiculous fancies and customs arose from this. Romantic love and chivalry are strong instances of the strange vagaries of our imagination, when carried along by this enthusiastic admiration of female purity; and so unnatural and forced, that they could only be temporary fashions. But I believe that, with all their ridicule, it would be a happy nation where this was the general creed and practice. Nor can I help thinking a nation on its decline, when the domestic connections cease to be venerated; and the illegitimate offspring of a nabob or a nobleman are received with ease into good company. Nothing is clearer than that the design of the Illuminati was to abolish Christianityand we now see how effectual this would be for the corruption of the fair sex, a purpose which they eagerly wished to gain, that they might corrupt the men. But if the women would retain the rank they now hold, they will be careful to preserve in full force on their minds this religion so congenial to their dispositions, which nature has made affectionate and kind" (Rabbi Emanuel Rabinovich and his co-conspirators announced the activation of this plan in 1952).
Robinson includes a letter from Illuminist Count Ludwig Savioli (code name Brutus) stating: "The Order must possess the power of life and death in consequence of our Oath . . . by the same right that any government in the world possesses it: For the Order comes in their place, making them unnecessary [the hope of Judaeo-Communism]. This power of life and death included abortion, as Robinson wrote that in the handwriting of Franz Zwack (Weishaupt's closest confidant, and code name Cato) was 'description of a strong box, which, if forced open, shall blow up and destroy its contentsSeveral receipts for procuring abortionA composition which blinds or kills when spurted in the face . . . A method for filling a bed-chamber with pestilential vapours . . ." Regarding abortion, Weishaupt wrote to confidant Jakob Hertel (code name Marius) in September 1783 that Weishaupt and his sister-in-law "have tried every method in our power to destroy the child" in her womb.
We live in the most glorious time of the world, yet this is the most deceitful age. Jesus questioned if in the time of His 'parousia' Coming, He would find faith on earth and prophesied "there will arise false Christs; [not false Jesus', no one would fall for that, but false anointed ones], and false prophets showing great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they would deceive the very elect" (Luke 18:8; Matthew 24:24). "Ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth, [Thy Word is Truth]. And as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the Truth: men of corrupt minds reprobate concerning the faith. But [given the Word test] they can proceed no further: for their folly is manifest to all men, like the impersonators of Moses" (II Timothy 3:7-9).
Where is virginity today? It belongs to few women; and few men in the Church possess a holy integrity even of their own body. Other members, however, preserve virginity, not in body, but in their born-again soul, which rules the spirit of their mind to virginal stability and holiness in thought and expression and over the actions of the flesh. Christians are virgins to the Logos of Jesus Christ by faith, not virgins to the rhema by scholarship but virgins in the unwavering faith of a pure conscience, unwavering hope in preparation for the 'third full' and sincere charity with the Token of the Life of Christ on display. This is the virginity which Paul, who was jealous for the Bridegroom, feared might be corrupted by the subtlety of the Serpent and his spiritual seed. Just as the bodily member is marred in a certain part, so the seduction of an undisciplined wandering mind, a loose unruly tongue defiles the virginity of the soul and leaves innocent non-elect without anchor in Christ or compass to the well-trodden path to where righteousness is preached. Let those who are not virgins in the flesh make their calling and election sure, so to preserve the virginity of their soul.
Psalm 45 is mentioned in Hebrews 1:8-9, "To the Son God said, Your throne, O God, is forever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of Your kingdom. You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even Your God has anointed You with the oil of gladness above your fellow heirs [in My promise to Abraham]" (Romans 8:17; Galatians 3:14; Hebrews 6:13-20). This speaks of the two-thousand year marriage ceremony of the Lamb to the members of His Bride. The King in all His glory and happiness is the special object of praise at the invisible union to His Gentile princess, who is counseled, "incline your ear" and come under subjection to your Husband; "forget [the world and the things of the world], also your fellow countrymen and your father's house . . . the king's daughter is all glorious within her chamber, her clothing is woven with gold," signifying deity, for she is dressed in His righteousness, which is THUS SAITH THE LORD by Brother Branham's "true sayings of God" (Revelation 19:7-9; 22:10-21).
He is calling the wise virgin, whose names were placed in the Lamb's Book of Life from the foundation of the world; the Bible holds that mystery, and the Bible is unfolding it nownot each one's name, but the mystery of the present Truthwhat Jesus is doing now. When you recognize the Word for your day and answer the call, you know that your name is written therein. The foolish virgin also hear the Bridegroom's call; they come out of darkness, practice righteousness and strive against sin, but being slothful and dilatory in "searching the Scripture daily to prove whether those things were so," they fail to see the Logos and find a place in the Body.
The Bride is reckoned perfect and chosen beyond these whom she surpasses in the beauty of virginity, therefore she is blessed by all and will one day be worshipped by all, because she saw and freely heard what they desired to see, even for a little time, and saw not, and to hear, but heard not. "Blessed," said our Lord, "are your eyes, for they see; and your ears, for they hear. For verily I tell you, That many prophets have desired to see those things which you see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which you hear, and have not heard them." The Church is blessed and admired because it is found worthy to participate in those things which they did not attain to hear or see. For "there are threescore queens and fourscore concubines and harem virgins without number. My Dove, My undefiled, is the nonpareil; the darling of her mother, flawless to she who bore her. The daughters of Jerusalem saw her, and blessed her; the queens and the concubines, also, and they praised her" (Songs 6:8-9).
Can anyone doubt this virgin Bride is the undefiled flesh of the Lord, for whose sake the Lamb left His Father and New Jerusalem, the mother of us all, and came down to cleave as one flesh (Genesis 2:24)? Therefore He calls us a Dove, we are tame and domestic, and readily identify with the nature of the Lamb. She alone was found spotless and undefiled, and excelling all in the glory and beauty of righteousness, so that none of those who had pleased God most perfectly could stand near to her in a comparison of virtue, she was thought worthy to become joint-heir of the kingdom of the Only begotten, being at one with Him. She is His undefiled and blessed flesh, which the Word Himself will carry into the heavens and present at the right hand of God, dressed in the beauty of holiness, woven of various virtues, such as chastity, prudence, faith, love, patience and other good things, in wrought with gold which cover and adorn the unseemliness of the flesh with immortality.
