You know, the conditions we presently enjoy in Australia, are only very temporary. We should redeem the time. Because as Paul Keating recently conceded, 'This is as good as it gets'. Conditions will never improve. We're at the END. Like Esau, we Gentiles, are fast approaching our place, of no more repentance.
Because we were not vigilant, democracy has been stripped from us. Gone forever. Whenever we vote for a candidate nowadays, we don't vote our own representative into Parliament, as we once did. We elect a man who's sold his soul to a Party system. He's purchased his seat with our vote. The man who's supposed to represent us, is actually bound to serve the Party machine, and not the citizens of his electorate. More sinister yet, his political party is bound to serve the unions, overseas banking, industry, the UN, some scheme manipulated by Fabian or other ideals anathema to this nation; and every other interest - but that of his electors.
These things have come upon us, through our desire for peace, and material ease. We've sold our birthright. We're morally weak, and economically bankrupt. The whole (once Christian), Western world, is in the same position, because we've rejected the principles of Christ and His Word. Soon, we'll pay sin's terrible price, in the Tribulation.
When we can no longer afford to pay bribes to the heathen nations around us, they'll just walk in and take over. And we'll allow them to take over. Praise God, the Christians won't be here at that time.
Last Sunday, I was speaking with an Anglican minister who outlined discussions at the General Synod of the Anglican Church, which met recently in Melbourne. He said, 'The main controversy was not reported in the media. It concerned the revision of the Communion Service, with the RE-introduction of certain PRE-Reformation (unbiblical) additions and doctrines, and of the Holy Communion being a sacrifice, rather than a remembrance of Christ's death ...' He said, 'Both the baptismal and burial services, have had additions, such as holy water, oil, and lighted candles, which were rejected in the Reformation as 'dumb and dark' ceremonies'.
So you see, the protestant churches are turning right back to the old mother whore, as fast as they can go. Luther, Wesley, Tindale, Wycliff and the other Reformers would roll over in their graves if they could see them - 'like a dog returning to its vomit, or a swine to its wallow' going back to the same mess they came out of. spitting on the blood and memory of tens of millions of martyrs.
And are you aware that our Federal Government, in two Bills before the Parliament has outlawed the preaching of the FULL Gospel? The RACIAL Vilification, and the ANTI-discrimination Bills actually OUTLAW Christianity. Oh, we think we're the clever country. We think we're so smart, that we can refuse God's grace and legislate to build Satan's Eden, here on earth. We've rejected Jesus Christ, and are trying to return to the law. It didn't work for Israel, who acknowledged and paid lip service to God; it will not work for us, who neither acknowledge God, nor His Word.
Because we were not vigilant, our freedom of worship has been legislated away, before our very eyes. Once Christian churches are now apostate; naked of the Blood, Spiritually blind, and bankrupt of the faith of Jesus Christ, which has been put outside the door.
If I get started on this subject, we won't get to our program. God bless you brethren. When you see the world, and churchy nominal Christians move one way, just step aside, and do the opposite.
Remember, Jesus said that the conditions of the days of Noah would repeat in our day. And we see it. The scientific intellectual sons of Adam, following intellectual giants, giants of sport, business, and the silver screen - just like their forefathers before the Flood; refusing God's Message of warning by His vindicated prophet in this day, as they rejected Noah and His Message then. Running after female flesh. Interbreeding with the children of Cain today, as they did back then. Fulfilling Scripture foretold by Jesus.
If God doesn't destroy our multicultural, multi-ethnic country of Australia for this wickedness, He's duty bound to dig up those who drowned in the Flood, and apologize to them.
Jesus said that the conditions of Sodom and Gomorrah, would repeat in this day. And they have. The world is in a Sodom condition, and therefore God's sent another three Messengers into the world, to preach righteousness. A Billy Graham and Oral Roberts have gone to the nominal church - of the world, in the world. Whilst God veiled Himself behind a sinner saved by Grace, revealing Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, and today, and forever by the Messianic Sign - discerning the thoughts and intents of people's hearts, 'as it was in the days of Lot'. And the people are as blind today, as they were then. They can no more find Christ, the virgin-born door to God's House, than those men could find the wooden door to Lot's house'.
If God doesn't destroy this city of Sydney, and this nation of Australia, by Fire from heaven, as He destroyed Sodom, and the cities on the plain, then He's obligated to dig up those people, and apologize to them. But Gods' no respecter of persons, and He did promise in Matthew 3, II Peter 3 and Revelation 16, that He'll destroy this whole Gentile civilization, with Fire out of Heaven.
We think we're so smart, that we can reject God's unchanging Word, make up our own rules, and get away with it. Whew!! Someone didn't love their children enough to spank them when they misbehaved! And We elected them to Parliament. God is long suffering towards us. But that won't excuse the sinner, who doesn't take the opportunity to receive his pardon, and repent, and be baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, for the remission of past sins.
We're living right at the end of the Gentile dispensation, where God's patience has worn so thin, it's razor-sharp. Over the past month, we've been studying the Seven Church Ages, to prove what prophecies of the Bible have been fulfilled already, so we can see what prophecies remain to be fulfilled, and recognize OUR day and ITS Message. Outside the faith, or a clear understanding, of the present Truth, of the Word God's fulfilling now, we're not even called to at all.
In a moment, we'll review the sixth and seventh Church Ages, to which John Wesley and William Branham were the messengers.
Since the fifth Church Age brought a great dissemination of the Word, through printing, the sixth Age was quick to take advantage of it. This Age was the second stage of the restoration, and as we stated previously, was the tassel age, the great pollinating Age of the Gospel - as the true wheat seed of the Word was scattered abroad. Education abounded. This was the age of intellectual men who loved god and served him. Missionaries multiplied, and the Word spread throughout the world. It was an age of brotherly love. It was an age of the open door. It was the last age of long duration. After it, the Laodicean Age would come, and be a short age.
The true vine flourished in this age, as in no other, when one thinks of numbers, at home, and abroad. This age brought holy men to the forefront. The true vine spread and the false vine receded. everywhere the true vine went, God gave Light, and Life, and happiness. The false vine was shown up for what it was: darkness, misery, poverty, illiteracy, and death. And as the false vine in its day of power, could not kill the true vine, neither could the true vine now bring the false vine back to Jesus Christ. But the false vine entrenched itself, waiting for the last part of the last age, when it would win all back to itself, except that small flock that were the elect, true vine of God.
But how sad this age makes us feel, as we realize that every great move of God, (and there were many), neglected to throw off the nicolaitane doctrine; for they all organized and died. They then moved into denominations, to hold the spiritually dead in foodless pastures. Little did they know it, but each group was tainted with that same error, and when the revival fire burned low, organization took over, and people became denominations. They were only nominal Christians, though each group claimed, with the very same assurance as the Roman Catholic church, that they were right, and all others wrong. The stage was truly set, for the daughters to go back home, in the last age, back to Rome, under the mother hen.
And what did we discover about the 1995 General Synod of the Anglican Church in Australia? They're reintroducing holy water, candles, turning the Lord's Supper into His breakfast or lunch, and making it a Mass, sacrificing unto themselves the Son of God afresh. And just recently, our own Queen, who's Head of the Anglican Church, attended Roman Catholic Service in Westminster Cathedral.
In a moment, we'll come to the last age: the Laodicean Age. We know it's the last age, for the Jews are back in Palestine. No matter how they got there; they're there. And this is harvest time. But before there can be a harvest, there must be a ripening, a maturing of both the vines.
The Lutheran Age was the spring time. The wesleyan Age was the summer of growth. The Laodicean age is the harvest time of gathering the tares for binding and burning; and garnering the wheat for the Lord.
We're now living in the end time. Very soon now, God will gather His Bride to the Wedding Supper in the Sky, and turn back to Israel during the Tribulation. There'll never be another Gentile saved. If you have the slightest doubt, whether or not, you're in the faith, why not come to Him now? While you're still able. All you have to do is prove these things in your Bible, and obey what God's Word says do.
When you can see a clear revelation of the Word, God promised to fulfill in this day, and see It coming to pass in your life, you know you're born again. Jesus said, 'At that day, you shall know that I am in My Father, and you are in Me, and I am in you' (John 14:20).
What day's that, Brother Anthony? When you see the living Word for this day - not some history, but the PRESENT Truth - Jesus Christ, living through your body, you know that you're a written epistle of the PRESENT Truth, and it's not your life, for 'you are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God' (Colossians 3:3), it's Christ living through you.
Harvest time. Have you noticed, that in the harvest time, though there's a real acceleration in the ripening, there's a consequent slowing of growth, until there is no growth? That's exactly what we're seeing now? The false vine is losing multitudes to the communists, and various other types of belief. Her numbers aren't increasing as she'd like us to think. Her hold on the people is not what it used to be, and in so many cases, going to church is just a show. And the true vine? What about her? Is she growing? Where are those vast numbers, that keep coming to revivals, and answer altar calls? Aren't most of them merely emotional in their approach, or desirous of something physical? rather than desiring that which is truly Spiritual?
This age is like the day in which Noah entered the ark, and the door was shut, yet God tarried in judgment seven days? And no one was literally turned to God in those silent days.
And yet it is the harvest time. Then there must come upon the scene in this age, those who'll bring the wheat and the tares to maturity. The tares are already maturing very fast, under corrupt teachers, who turn the people from the Word. But the wheat also must mature. And to her, God sent the Prophet-Messenger, with the vindicated ministry, that he might be accepted by the elect.
They'll hear him, as the first Church heard Paul. She'll mature in the Word, until becoming a Word Bride. And the mighty works will be found in her, that are always attendant, upon the pure word, and faith.
The false church groups will unite, in a World Council of Churches. This World Council of Churches, is the image erected to the beast. Revelation 13:11-18, "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exercised all the power of the first beast before him, and caused the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceives them that dwell on the earth, by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. And he caused all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, except he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding, count the number of the beast: for it's the number of a man; and his number is six hundred three score and six."
Now remember, it was Imperial pagan Rome that fell by the sword. But she was healed of her death stroke, when she joined to the nominal Christian church of Rome, and incorporated paganism and Christianity, and thereby became the Holy Roman Empire, which was to endure until Jesus came, and destroyed her. But Rome is not going it alone. Her daughters are right with her, and she'll take over absolute authority by the World Council of Churches. This may seem far fetched to some, but actually it's very plain for all to see, because right now, the churches are controlling politics, and at the opportune time, will manifest exactly how great is that control. This ecumenical move, will end up with Rome at the head, even though the people didn't envision it that way.
This is so, because in Revelation 17:3-6, it states that the whore, MYSTERY Babylon, is seated on the beast. She's controlling the last, or fourth empire of Nebuchadnezzar's dream. This Roman Church is doing that. With the world church system under her, Rome will be controlling, and this image (church system), will be obedient to Rome, because Rome controls the gold of the world. Thus, all the people have to belong to the world church system, or be at the mercy of the elements, for they can't buy or sell, without the mark of the beast, in the hand or head.
This mark in the head means that they'll have to take the doctrine of the world church system, which is trinitarianism, etc., and the mark in the hand, which means to do the will of the world church. With this great power, the church systems will persecute the true Bride. This image will try to keep the bride from preaching and teaching. Her ministers will be forbidden to give comfort and truth to the people who need it. But before the antichrist (in person), takes over this complete world system of churches, the true church will be taken away from this world, to be with the Lord. God will catch away His Bride, for the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
Now as this resume of the Seven Church Ages, was given in order to trace the two churches, and two spirits, from Pentecost, to their consummation. In the following few programs, we'll expand upon this phenomena in the Laodicean Age.

We have time to review just one comment from Bible Believers BBS.
Sister, God bless your Pastor for his righteous stand!
No woman has any business behind the pulpit, she's forbidden to preach, lead songservice, or hold any office which would place her in authority over man. Read I Timothy 2. This has been since the Fall.
God made woman the weaker vessel, placing her on free moral agency so she could be the glory of her husband, or, his shame.
And Christ placed the church on the same trust. The true Church, reflects His glorious attributes, and will rule and reign by His side through Eternity. The false church, is called a whore. She'll be stoned, and cast in the lake of Fire with her harlot daughters.
Woman is not an original creation direct from the hand of God, but a byproduct from the man. She was made so she can deceive, and be deceived. Likewise, the Church is a byproduct, taken from the side of the original Word, Christ, when God put Him asleep on Calvary.
Adam was not deceived, but the woman; Christ was not deceived, but the church. Woman caused every sickness, every death, every war, every bitter word. and "the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon earth was found in the false church". (That's in Revelation 18:24).
God placed woman under a separate covenant. She's not to usurp the authority of men, and is to obey her husband in every thing. You sisters serve God, as you obey your husband. Outside the kitchen and children, you have no authority.
Many consider modern marriage a 50-50 affair. But the Bible says it's 100:NOTHING. In the same way, Christ rules the Church, which is to live by His every Word, with no thoughts of her own. Not one flirt with the world; the mind of Christ is in her.
It's abomination in the sight of god, for a woman to wear clothes pertaining to a man. It's immodest, and she's challenging man's authority.
Uncut hair is the Nazarite sign of a Christian woman, signifying she's separated from the world, and under the headship of her own husband.
In olden times, an adulteress was shaved. If a woman cuts her hair today, it's the same as if she were shaved. A shameful sign that she's rejected the authority of her husband, or father, and therefore God. Because the man is the head of the woman; Christ is the head of every man, and the Head of Christ is God. Therefore he can put her away in divorcement, because by dishonoring her head she's dishonored Him, and isn't fit to pray. (That's I Corinthians 11).
Like Jesus and the Father, the saints are one in the Word. Whether Jew or Greek, bond or free, male or female - we're in agreement, and have equal eternal Life. Yet man and woman remain under two separate covenants (Jn. 17; Ga. 3:28; I Co. 6:17). radio026.html
