Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
The 'hidden hand' is certainly applying the 'squeeze' to the general public and I am informed that US radio presenter Alex Jones has interviewed an employee of the Department of Defense who said that tenders have been invited for personnel to man FEMA compounds at 72 hours notice. After Los Angeles sinks beneath the Pacific the 'squeeze' will turn upon Christ's end-time Bride.
Further signs of the approaching end to the Gentile dispensation our news items. Our main article is an exhortation to make your calling and election sure.
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.

Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) & the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA)
Here is the EVIDENCE that the so-called "piracy" SOPA (H.R. 3261) is ostensibly intended to "stop" was ENGINEERED by the Big Three Media Companies! A classic example of the Hegelian dialectic with the 'hidden hand' controlling both sides of a contrived conflict to produce a pre-planned outcome . . . for the best one world government money can buy.
This bill would establish a system for taking down websites that the Justice Department determines to be dedicated to copyright infringement. The DoJ or the copyright owner would be able to commence a legal action against any site they deem to have "only limited purpose or use other than infringement," and the DoJ would be allowed to demand that search engines, social networking sites and domain name services block access to the targeted site. SOPA combines Senate PIPA bills (S.968 and S.978) into one big House bill. In some cases, action could be taken to block sites without first allowing the alleged infringer to defend themselves in court.
Pornography is not the target, nor is piracy, but ABSOLUTE POWER through fraudulent legislation that will generate online "infringements" whereby government and big business can blacklist, censor and silence websites publishing "inconvenient" scientific, commercial or historical truths inimical to Lucifer's soon-coming one world government. The objective is mind manipulation and control centralizing political and commercial power whereby internet service providers will be forced to block access to sites that publish "inconvenient truths".

Comment: POTUS, most Senators and Congressmen are bought and paid for by the 'hidden hand' that controls global media, entertainment and education. This very real and evil Orwellian "conspiracy" is against "we the people" of all nations or Goiim worldwide. Know your enemy: where there is law there is punishment, "but now the righteousness of God without the Law is manifest, being witnessed by the Law and the prophets; even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ to all and upon all who believe" (Romans 3:21-22).
In Russia, China, Serbia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, occupied Palestine, Lebanon, Egypt and Libya they controlled Goiim by a bullet to the back of the neck. The once Christian Goiim are controlled by electronic media, for Satan is "the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience: among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature children of wrath, even as the others" (Ephesians 2:2-3).
Emails count a little. Phone calls and faxes count more. A short, clear printed letter counts the most. Contact details for Senators and Representatives here. Select your state and enter your zip code. Mention your name and address if phoning or include them in correspondence to identify yourself as a constituent. Mention H.R. 3621 (SOPA) to your representative, or S. 968 (PIPA) to your Senator.
But if you dig the dirt you will discover the 'City of London,' and Rothschild's George Soros with his Sunlight Foundation, Rockefeller, and the rest of "our crowd" (NOT) behind Open Congress and other organizations protesting against the bills. The children of disobedience hold the levers that control both sides of this subterfuge . . . and they know who you are. Not in the US? Petition the State Department (Move0n.org and George Soros want your email address)!
Change in the Russian Federation? Why Washington wants 'Finito' with Vladimir Putin
January 10, 2012 Washington and especially Barack Obama's Administration don't give a hoot about whether Russia is democratic or not. Their concern is the obstacle to Washington's plans for Full Spectrum Dominance of the planet that a Putin Presidency will represent. According to the Russian Constitution, the President of the Russian Federation is head of state, supreme commander-in-chief and holder of the highest office in the Russian Federation. He will take direct control of defense and foreign policy.
We must ask what policy? Clearly strong countermeasures against the blatant NATO encirclement with Washington's ballistic missile installations around Russia will be high on Putin's agenda. Hillary Clinton's "reset" will be in the dustbin if it is not already. We can also expect a more aggressive use of Russia's energy card with pipeline diplomacy to deepen economic ties between European NATO members such as Germany, France and Italy, ultimately weakening the EU support for aggressive NATO measures against Russia. We can expect a deepening of Russia's turn towards Eurasia, especially with China, Iran and perhaps India to firm up the shaky spine of resistance to Washington's New World Order plans.
It will take more than a few demonstrations in sub-freezing weather in Moscow and St. Petersburg by a gaggle of corrupt or shady opposition figures such as Nemtsov or Kasparov to derail Russia. What is clear is that Washington is pushing on all fronts—Iran, and Syria where Russia has a vital naval port, on China, now on Russia, and on the Eurozone countries led by Germany. It has the smell of an end-game attempt by a declining superpower.
The United States today is a de facto bankrupt nuclear superpower. The reserve currency role of the dollar is being challenged as never since Bretton Woods in 1944. That role along with maintaining the United States as the world's unchallenged military power have been the basis of the American Century hegemony since 1945.
Weakening the role of the dollar in international trade and ultimately as reserve currency, China is now settling trade with Japan in bilateral currencies, side-stepping the dollar. Russia is implementing similar steps with her major trade partners. The primary reason Washington launched a full-scale currency war against the Euro in late 2009 was to preempt a growing threat that China and others would turn away from the dollar to the Euro as reserve currency. That is no small matter. In effect Washington finances its foreign wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya and elsewhere through the fact that China and other trade surplus nations invest their surplus trade dollars in US government Treasury debt. Were that to shift significantly, US interest rates would rise substantially and the financial pressures on Washington would become immense.
Faced with growing erosion of her unchallenged global status as sole superpower, Washington appears now to be turning increasingly to raw military force to hold that. For that to succeed Russia must be neutralized along with China and Iran. This will be the prime agenda of whoever is next US President. . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: Don't trust the Western Powers. Ask Iran, who understands this very well. Revelation 13:11-18 is the USA.
Astonishing Israeli Attack on Iran
January 17, 2012 There is little doubt that much of what is said by Israeli and American sources on Iran is misinformation . . . The Islamic Republic of Iran never attacked any other country. Unlike America, (see American Led Apocalypse) they do not base their wealth on the Business of War. The eighteenth largest economy in the world by purchasing power parity (PPP) is based on mining, manufacturing, and agriculture, with 45% of the Iranian government's budget coming from oil and natural gas revenues. In order to keep its profitable oil business going, Iran needs peace. Thus, it is unlikely to attack any other country in the future. Yet, American and Israeli journalists keep claiming otherwise in increasingly hysterical tones. Needless to say, these two economies are based almost solely on the Business of War.
These attacks on Iran are done in such a wild fashion, that sometimes I have the feeling Western journalists are running amok randomly along and across a conceptual matrix covering the options being promoted by their political warlords. . . Why would the West care about a proven peaceful society? Is that for the compulsive need by Western, 1984-oriented societies in having an enemy? Is Iran the perfect enemy of the West because it is peaceful and thus can be safely provoked to death? Are the coward Western generals attacking because they know there would be no military attack in response? . . . a leading journalist of Yedihot Ahahronotsaid on that Friday that the IDF Head of Staff Beni Gantz, Mossad Director Tamir Pardo, Head of Aman (IDF Military Intelligence Corps) Aviv Cochabi, and the Head of Shin Beth Yoram Cohenin other words, Israel's leading generalsoppose an attack on Iran. In the past Meir DaganPardo's predecessor as Mossad Directordefined such an attack as a "foolish idea" . . . Full story: roytov.com
Comment: The postponement of a massive joint US-Israeli military exercise appears to be the culmination of a series of events that has impelled the Barack Obama administration to put more space between the United States and aggressive Israeli policies toward Iran.
Sunday Times: Mossad Agents behind Iran Scientist Assassination
January 16, 2012 According to the report, the assassination of Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan was similar to that seen in "espionage films"planned over a period of many months, and including extensive surveillance and intelligence gathering. The Sunday Times quoted an unnamed Israeli sources who claimed that the killing was a precursor to a military strike, which would make rebuilding nuclear facilities more difficult for Iran, should they be bombed . . .
According to the Sunday Times, Roshan, 32, was monitored from a makeshift control room in a safe house nearby as he was preparing to leave for work. Israeli agents were also watching the entrance to Iranian intelligence headquarters in the city center, when they noticed a number of cars and people running, followed by police rushing into the nearby streets. Another agent monitoring radio traffic between the Tehran police and security forces confirmed unusual activity, said the paper . . .
The United States ruled out any connection with the assassination. "We were not involved in any way with regards to the assassination that took place there," said Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, although he did hint that he had "some idea" of who was. According to the report, the British Foreign Office also said Britain had "no involvement whatsoever" in the attack. Full story: haaretz.com
Comment: Iran is the last of the top 10 oil producers not controlled by USrael, and Iran holds the second largest reserves of oil in the world. If the US controls oil resource it can force purchase in USD, keep its currency afloat, export inflation, and spend like a drunken sailor.
JB Campbell: Anti-American
December 13, 2010 The leakers are being called "anti-American."
What decent person, anywhere in the world today, is not anti-American? Is there anyone more dangerous than our typical ignorant, arrogant American "citizen," who very likely couldn't find America on a marked map of the world? Well, yes: the American military man, who is the most dangerous son of a bitch on the planet. And I don't mean that in a good way . . .
An honest American has to admit that he hates this country, not just the government. The government is a reflection of the people who pay for it. This country isn't what you thought it was and it never has been. We've been conditioned to pledge allegiance to the flag and to the nation for which it stands, but what it stands for isn't what Hollywood has had us believing since we were little kids.
All leaks are good, as long as they're the real deal, not redacted or altered to make us support Israel. The only way we can survive is to know the truth about what government and the corporations have been secretly doing to us and others. The truth may be anti-American, but that's the way the cookie crumbles. Full story: veteranstoday.com
Comment: Last year, Tariq Aziz gave his first interview in his then, over seven years incarceration by the Americans. His insight was as astute as ever, as was his love, and despair, for his country. "There is nothing here anymore. Nothing. For thirty years Saddam built Iraq and now it is destroyed. There are more sick than before, more hungry. The people don't have services. People are being killed every day in the tens, if not hundreds. We are all victims of America and Britain. They killed our country". . .
He summed up the Bush Administration's reason for war against Iraq tersely as: "Oil and Israel". . . With a Prime Minister and others with deep ties to Israel, Iran, and the largest US Embassy on earth representing many still seeking to cover the tracks of illegalities, lies and duplicity, no wonder whilst the West counted down to Christmas, this indomitable, frail, ill, incarcerated seventy four year old, was alone, trying to count how many days he has left on earth. . .

BIG Pharma, Codex Alimentarius and Global Depopulation
November 28, 2011 Codex Alimentariusthe thinly-veiled propaganda arm of the international pharmaceutical industry that does everything it can to promote industry objectives whilst limiting individual options to maintain health (which would diminish members' profits).
Codex Alimentarius is one of the major bodies behind the effort to limit access to nutritional products and information. Its motivation is not rocket science and neither is the source of its fundingmoney that somehow expected to return a profit to its members . . . Most of the information available regarding Codex Alimentarius refers to its role in the USA, but it is not a US-specific body. Far from it, Codex has wiggled its dirty little tentacles into just about every national or international body concerned with public health. Posing as a benefactor, it then uses its significant financial and political clout to do its masters bidding. Full story: youtube.com
Comment: BIG Pharma actually kills more people than the US military. You MUST watch this video which covers instruments of global genocide such as the WHO and WTO, and the drive to establish Lucifer's totalitarian one world government of DEATH. Organic farming is under threat by the abolition of specific food labeling, and Napoleonic law. BIG Pharma is owned by BIG Oil, which is owned by the banksters of the City of London.
Leaked documents exposed by WikiLeaks show that the US is threatening nations who oppose Monsanto with military-style trade wars, but that many US diplomats actually work directly for Monsanto.
The Day of Preparation
The Boy Scouts' motto was "Be Prepared," and while we are not Boy Scouts, God sent a scout before us to make straight paths for our feet so that those who follow his ministry though weak and lame in understanding will not be discouraged and turned out of the way but healed and made whole. Before thousands of witnesses the Lord commissioned him in an audible Voice: "As John the Baptist foreran My first Coming, your Message will forerun My second Coming." This William Branham prepared the way of the Lord in these last days and we must do our utmost to present ourselves approved of God when He examines our work, by rightly dividing the Message of His Prophet consistent with the Scripture from Genesis to Revelation, turning neither to the right nor to the left from the strict path of righteousness, which is faith.
A military general or professional sportsman will study his opponents in preparation for the contest to learn the strengths against which he must defend and the weaknesses he must turn to his own advantage. As a young man Brother Branham won the Bantam Weight Championship in the Golden Gloves and then went professional, winning fifteen fights in a row. Coming to the Lord ended his boxing career. His last fight was a draw, and he went back to the same arena preaching the Gospel. "Now, I'm fighting, not my brother, but the Devil that's been binding my brother".
We are each fighting the greatest battle ever foughtthe battle over a hundred-odd pounds of clay we call "me." That battle is raging in your mortal spirit or mind, and your corruptible flesh. Your adversary is Satan, the god of this evil age whose objective is to rule and destroy "me." You must realize that "me" is not a hundred pounds of clay with its five senses of sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell, or your mortal spirit with its senses of conscience, memory, imagination, reasoning and affection. "Me" is a spirit called soul God created and ordained to take dominion over that house and the spirit that powers it, and must bring its ten senses under submission for the glory of God or through the senses of your unredeemed body and spirit which are of the world the Adversary will take mastery over "me".
When questioned about his gift, Brother Branham said, "My gift is to get myself out of the way." If we can receive the revealed Word of God without censorship by our conscience, memory, imagination, reasoning and affection it will produce what it says. When His disciples marveled how quickly the fig tree had withered, and from the roots, Jesus said, "If you have faith, and doubt not, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but if you say to this mountain, Be removed and cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things whatever you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive" (Matthew 21:21-22).
Jesus is the Apostle and High Priest of our profession and this is the manifestation of our 'third pull'!
Paul identified the battleground: it is the ten earthly senses given us to interact with the three dimensions of this temporal existence (Romans 7:25). You, soul, are here on the basis of free moral agency to choose between doubt and faith, and your decisions will determine your destiny. You have to make what God says your Absolute, not see, hear, taste, smell and touch, and anchor your trust in that unseen substance called faith in His revealed Word. It is your mind that opens or closes the door to faith; the revealed Word must not be hindered by memory's appeal to affection, conscience deferring to reason, or imagination running to unbelief. Let the revealed Word bypass those obstacles and go direct to soul, then prove those things from Genesis to Revelation where there are no "ifs" or "buts," just THUS SAITH THE LORD. God's Word is the unbending rod of iron whereby He rules.
Before we were formed God commissioned each and every one of Adam's children, "Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the Earth and subdue it" (Genesis 1:28). But how can we possibly subdue the Earth at large if we can't bring our little patch of clay subject to His Word? The answer is found in Ephesians 6:10-18. We are not sent into battle as naked new born babies but "strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might [in us]. So put on the whole armour of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against powers, against principalities, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in heavenly places. Therefore take the whole armour of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand immoveable on that Word. Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod in preparation to face the enemy with the firm-footed stability and readiness produced by the Gospel of peace; above all taking up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of that wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, praying in the Spirit at all times with all prayer and supplication, constantly alert with all perseverance and supplication for all saints".
Bring your ten mortal senses under submission, and as the ministering spirit that you are, ministering reconciliation by the revealed Word for this hour, "take the little Book out of the right hand of the Angel [who is the Tree of Life], and eat it up: its revelation will be sweet as honey in your mouth: and as soon as you have eaten it, your belly will be bitter [because you must not feed your intellect but your soul, then your life will become a written epistle through faith, known and read of all men once you have put down the rebellion of your ten worldly senses]. And the Angel, Christ, told me, You must prophesy this Message again concerning many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings".
Like the United States and the other colonies of the City of London, all nations have been white anted and overcome by the alien enemy within, as Benjamin Franklin and George Washington cautioned. But how and why is Christendom (and the heathen lands) so bound? It is because the churches organized and those multinational corporations, bound by man-made creeds and the traditions of a bygone age have been infiltrated by unbelievers and taken over by the enemy of God and man, encouraged by well-intentioned but carnal men who love a God unknown by them.
God deals with Israel as a nation in the land of the Covenant; He does not deal with church organizations, for the Christian Church is those individuals who have become the temple of the Living God, born of His Spirit through a clear revelation of the present Truth (I Corinthians 3:16-18; I John 1:7). We must separate from the worldfrom our natural senses of see, touch, taste, smell, hear, conscience, imagination, memory, reason, and affection, open our heart, sanctify our body and live under preeminence to the Word, and every one, by the faith in our soul.
This is our day of preparation for eternal Life, or eternal separation from God's Presence. Noah spent a hundred and twenty years making preparations to deliver his family and whosoever would receive his Message of salvation from the consummation. Jesus said that the increase of knowledge in this last generation would surpass the sum of knowledge accumulated in the previous four thousand yearsso much so that man would remove the hand of God from creation "as it was in the days of Noah. And as in the days that were before the Flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the Coming of the Son of man be." And so it is: forty-nine years after the fact the world is ignorant of His Presence with us now, and life goes on.
II Peter 3:6-7, "The world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: at present, however, the heavens and the Earth are by the same Word stored up for burning, and reserved for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men [who have ignored their day of preparation]".
The world is unprepared; even Brethren in the circle of this Message while learning its "letter" have failed to prepare their heart with its revelation which is the true communion of saints with Christ their God.
This is the day of preparation for the first resurrection, the manifestation of the Sons of God, and the translation. Focus your life on the promise of this hour, not on earthly circumstances, personal shortcomings and frailty of age or youthful inexperience which are no impediment to faith. And do not allow Satan to bring you under condemnation for past sins you have confessed and placed under the Blood. Brother Branham said, "If sin is under the Blood, you will notice [when the Lord is discerning the thoughts and intents of people's heart in my ministry] that it is never mentioned. The Holy Spirit never calls it out. But if there is unconfessed sin in a person's lifea besetting sin, or something that would keep him from getting healed, it will be revealed." In the twinkling of an eye we will each be restored to the prime of life, all aged about 21, in imperishable glorified flesh that can never grow old. Just hold to God's unchanging Word. He is preparing His children by faith in the present Truth, not guesswork! And has committed to you the ministry of reconciling others by like precious revelation (II Corinthians 5:18-21).
The children of Israel made preparation against the Angel of death that would fly over the land of Egypt and slay every firstborn of man and beast that was not under the Blood of the lamb painted on the lintel over the doorway. All who entered the house had to pass under the blood which was the evidence of an innocent substitute slain in their stead and a type of our Kinsman Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Only those under the blood of the lamb began the first exodus.
The second exodus began when Israel crucified our real Passover Lamb and Kinsman Redeemer outside Jerusalem, and the elect Israelites were baptized into Christ and inaugurated the primitive Church that followed God without the camp of Israel into the wilderness (Revelation 12:1-6; Daniel 9:26). The unchanging God established the pattern when Israel broke her covenant at Sinai "and Moses took the tabernacle and pitched it without the camp of Israel, afar off from the camp, and called it the Tabernacle of the congregation. And it came to pass, that everyone who sought the Lord went out to the tabernacle of the congregation, which was without the camp" (Exodus 33:7).
Moses was a type of the church organization which failed God. When he smote the Rock a second time he took glory unto himself before the congregation instead of glorifying God, foreshadowing how the denominational churches would "crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put Him to an open shame" (Hebrews 6:6), signifying the insufficiency of the Word, that is, the "third pull." Because of this the Lord withdrew from Moses the honour of leading Israel into the land of Canaan and he died on this side of Jordan as the organized church has died; so the PART-Word saints will enter glory and our promised land of the Millennium via the grave.
You are following this ministry as a participant in the third exodus wherein God is calling Christ's end-time Bride out from the churches that have glorified themselves and consider His Word insufficient (Matthew 15:1-13; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:4), making yourself ready for the marriage supper of the Lamb in the sky by clothing yourself in the righteousnesses of the saints, which is the true sayings of God revealed by Brother Branham (Revelation 19:7-9).
Joshua who "observed to do all the Law, which Moses God's servant commanded," types Brother Branham's Elijah ministry which restored the apostolic faith, finished the mystery of God, and will take Christ's end-time Bride across to the other side of Jordan, a symbol of death. Joshua taught only what God had already revealed through Moses, as our prophet restored the Church to the faith once delivered to the apostolic saints through the prophet Paul, who based his revelation on Moses. Caleb who stayed with Joshua represents the wise virgin, Christ's end-time Bride, who remains true to the revelation of the Message. Brother Branham was the first fruits of Christ's end-time Bridethose who are His at His 'parousia' (I Corinthians 15:23).
We are not living under the anointing of the living creatures with the face of a lion, ox, or man, but under the Fourth Seal that was introduced by the living creature with the face of an eagle. Therefore we reflect certain attributes of an eagle. Rather than scratch around in the manure of denominational chickens for a meal of PART-Word and Roman traditions, we heed the Master's call, "Come up hither, and I will show you things that must be hereafter" (John 16:13; Revelation 4:1). Immediately we are in the spirit soaring in the heavenly atmosphere to see mysteries hidden from the foundation of the world, above where fowl yard birds can fly. Below us we see hawks sitting on power lines waiting to scavenge a fox or a rabbit someone has run over. The hawk is a backslidden eagle, and slothful like the foolish virgin. Paul prophesied, "In the last days men would be heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure, more than lovers of God, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, and despisers of those that are in the faith, having a form of godliness, but denying the revelation of the Word, from such turn away" (II Timothy 3:1-5). And they are.
Have you made preparations? Soon the Angel of Death will fly over the whole Earth. Revelation 6:8, "Behold a pale horse: and the name of his rider was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given to them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with war, and with famine, and with death, and with untamed bestial men of this Earth." Satan was the rider of all four horses; under the Fourth Seal he is exposed and named Death, the antithesis of Jesus Messiah, "whose Name is called The Word of God [and Life]" (Revelation 19:13; John 6:63). Satan, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, and Christ, the Tree of Life, stand before each of us in this evil Age, revealed by the Seven Thunders of Brother Branham's Message. Yes, Satan is riding through the land today, preaching and promoting the "letter" of Brother Branham's Message with deadly zeal, and "like the scribes and Pharisees, he shuts up the kingdom of heaven against men: for his children neither go in to the revelation of the Message themselves, neither do they suffer those who are entering to go in" (Matthew 23:13). In the name of William Branham, Satan is gathering for perdition all that ignores this day of preparation and accepts the "letter of the Message without the Spirit".
Today we must display the Token not the chemistry of the Blood, which was a substitute until the real Lamb came. The lamb had a mortal spirit but no soul that could come back upon the believer. Our Token is not the Blood but the Life of Christ, for the Life is in the Blood, and the Life of Christ is the Holy Spirit. Here is the test: if we have the Holy Spirit we will receive the revelation of the Message; simply believing God sent a prophet and that his Message is THUS SAITH THE LORD is not sufficient: the understanding God showed Brother Branham is the MIND of God in us. Given that the Spirit will display the Attributes of Christ in us.
Will we then have the fruit of the Spirit? Certainly, but in judging you must look beyond what your worldly senses of see, hear, touch, taste, and smell observe, and what conscience, affection, imagination, memory and reasoning assess, to the Absolute of faith (understanding) in God's unchanging Word. And when you can see yourself as an Attribute in God's thinking when He foresaw Jesus slain from the foundation of the world that is the tiepost of the soul, and nothing can ever move it (Romans 8:33-39). Brother Branham said, "Not by speaking in tongues, not by dancing in the Spirit, not by joining the church, not by fruit of the SpiritChristian Science can out smother any of you on that, see, and deny even Jesus Christ was Divine".
God wants you to die to yourself. That old husband, the nature of the world that rules through the ten senses given you to contact this world must be dead to you before your invisible marriage union. You, your soul has to die to that old husband, to the love of the world and the things of the world and come alive to God and the things of His Word which is Christ. Contrary to Talmudic doctrine there is no such thing as two souls or replacement of souls. You are your irreplaceable soul; it is that worldly nature ruling as your husband that must be dead to you before you can marry your new Husband, the Word, and receive His nature, which is the Token. Your soul is the feminine of the Spirit that rules and "the woman who has a husband is bound by the Law to her husband so long as he lives; but if the husband is dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband" (Romans 7:2). Jesus died on Calvary and arose to a new life, and you have to die to self before you can rise in newness of eternal Lifeborn of His Spirit.
Consider our Brother Yousef Nadarkhani and other Brothers and Sisters imprisoned in Iran. The harsher the conditions and the more the authorities press them to recant the faith and become Muslims, the stronger their faith becomes. Instead of taking the path most trodden they have taken the path of the Lord's despised few. What happened? They died to that old worldly nature, the de facto husband of their soul, and are alive to Christ IN them. In his liberty Pastor Youcef preached Christ and the resurrection with his lips to several house churches; now that he is incarcerated he and his Brothers and Sisters in chains are living their sermon, and his congregation is worldwide.
God have mercy upon you who are at liberty to choose or refuse to go beyond the holier than thou "Brother Branham was God's Prophet" and "I don't cut my hair or wear bifurcated garments" attitude to personal relationship with Christ whereby He communes with you, whispering His secrets to His Bride. Deuteronomy 29:29, "The secret things belong to the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the Words of this Law." If you don't know Christ when Los Angeles goes under the sea, your cries for mercy will be in vain like those outside the ark when God broke up the fountains of the great deep, and the windows of heaven were opened. There will be nothing but judgment and the very Message they scoffed at will translate the saints and smite the Earth with a curse.
God always prepares a way of escape for those who want to escape. You are not responsible for being born a sinner, but you are responsible for remaining a sinner. You were born in sin, conceived in iniquity and came into the world speaking lies. It is your choice whether you are to remain in unbelief or to walk in the way that is consecrated to God. God cannot bring judgment without first sending and vindicating a prophet with warning and a way of escape (Amos 3:7). Remember, Christ's mediation ended with the Laodicean Church Age, and the Blood of Christ leaves this earth in the translation of "we who are alive and remain" for we are the Blood of Christ by the baptism with the Holy Spirit, for the Life is in the Blood (John 6:63; 17:21-26; Romans 8:9-11; II Corinthians 4:10-12; Galatians 3:27-29). Thus so long as Christ's end-time Bride is present on earth it is a Mercy Seat, but when the last member is baptized into His Body and His Bride is translated, earth will become His footstool, or judgment seat (Isaiah 66:1).
Meanwhile, every nation is under Satan's dominion as confirmed when Satan took Jesus upon a high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of this world. When we review history we see Satan and the children of disobedience, natural and spiritual Serpent's seed whom God set at enmity with the first and the last Adam and their seed behind every war (Genesis 3:15). There can be no more peace until Jesus binds Satan for a thousand years by slaying the remnant of his children with the sword of His mouth and feeding them to the fowls of the air (Revelation 19:21 20:3).
The last Church Age before this present holy convocation, which is the antitype of the fiftieth day of Israel's feast of Pentecost, was Laodicea (1906-1963). Laodicea is a woman's name; the church is feminine in designation and like your soul is ordained to be under the Headship of her husband Jesus Christ (Ephesians 5:22-33). The natural types the Spiritual and the churches of Laodicea grew "lukewarm" in their love for Christ and usurped His authority. Isaiah 4:1: "In that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by Your name, to take away our reproach".
The other week I updated our cumulative list of members of the City of London's Council of Foreign Relations that selects United States' presidents, most of her senior Administration, and exercises global control through the United Nations. To my surprise, the majority of new members are women? We live in a woman's world. Whereas God said she is to be "a keeper at home," she is on the pill, competing with men in the workplace, in the military, and even in the ministry. She drinks like a man, has taken up smoking since men have quit, and picks up men like a sailor on shore leave and swears like a trooper.
Satan is preparing his huge earthbound church for hell, while God is preparing His heaven-born "little flock" for glory. We once had a wonderful Brother from a staunch Judaeo-Roman Catholic background. He did run well but he has not been seen for many years. He testified that whatever its doctrine he always knew the Catholic church was FALSE, because Christ's Church is a "little flock," and there are over a billion Romans, not one of them a Christian.
Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches are nothing more than the world with God's Name on it. And Satan who will shortly incarnate the pope is the god of this world. God is not looking for mixers wanting popularity with the world, for His Word demands a total separation from unbelief. When you have the Holy Spirit it will separate you from sin and prepare you to meet your heavenly Bridegroom in the flesh.
A woman betrothed to a husband separates and prepares herself to serve and please her husband. Right now Christ is calling His end-time Bride and even the foolish virgin out from every church including the independents into the unity of the faith once delivered to the apostolic saints by the mysteries of the Seven Thunders which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:4), for the manifestation of the Sons of God (Romans 8:19) and the translation (I Corinthians 15:46-57). His promise cannot fail and His wife has made herself ready. Today, if you will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation in the wilderness and in the Laodicean Church Age which rejected the Message and ended in apostasy; and despite forty years of wandering in the wilderness, knows it not. Soon the dispensation of grace will end and after a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit this little hunted and persecuted group will go to be with Jesus. If you are not ready, won't you now seek God with all your heart? nl719.htm
