Bible Believers' Newsletter 1023
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it's always good to see and fellowship with you in God's unchanging Word.
Citizens of the apostate (once) Christian West are defenceless when their elected representatives are compulsorily funding the Fifth Columns of those the God of Israel "set at enmity with the seed of the first and the last Adam," and whose objective is hegemony over "all the kingdoms of the world and their terrestrial glory"—soon to be realized by Rome (Genesis 3:15; Matthew 4:4). The UK, USA, France, Germany and scores of countries are pawns serving City of London banksters, Vatican City clerics and Washington DC warmongers. Each seeks mastery, and all are in short term jeopardy of losing their power base. Western Intelligence (sic) Agencies like the CIA are servants of these City States and NOT beholden to the nations and taxpayers that fund their clandestine activities.
Whereas the national treasure and rich natural resources of developing nations are looted through corrupt authorities, planned coups d'état, etc., in the developed world public utilities are privatised, while deregulation has seen highly profitable banks with 'bail-in' legislation and government 'lender of last resort' [likely borrowed from the City] enter largely Rothschild control. A long overdue Royal Commission has disclosed money laundering, corruption in regulatory agencies, and all manner of regular 'irregularities' which would see directors of non-financial interests imprisoned.
"Life gets tedious, don't it"?
We look away to Jesus in our feature article, "From the Beginning of the Creation God made them Male and Female," psychology is changing all that. In a busy roundup of important news please note "the squeeze" on your Church Website and other websites by organs of the three city states' Ministry of Truth, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Wikipedia, etc., have determined Orwell was right, "truth is lies," "peace means war," and "love is hate".
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.
Israel LIED . . . again about Iran's Nuclear Weapons
May 2, 2018 — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's dramatic presentation on Iran's defunct nuclear program—with his claim that tens of thousands of files prove there was an effort to build and test weapons . . . was old news. Full story: nbcnews.com
Comment: Netanyahu said the documents had been stolen by Mossad . . . some opportunistic Iranian Jew is now a wealthy man. "For fear of the Jews" there are probably more Israelites in Iran than in Israel. Coincidentally with his baseless accusations about Iran, Knesset extremists passed legislation that permit him to declare war or conduct major military operations after consulting his war minister alone—bypassing the Knesset and security cabinet, and ignoring international law. Overnight Israeli aggression on three Syrian sites: something serious in the offing? Why is Netanyahu not arraigned?
Lebanon: a Powder Keg that will ignite Wider Regional Conflict
April 27, 2018—Some experts believe a war between Israel and Hezbollah is almost inevitable. It's just a matter of time. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres believes that a direct clash between Israel and Hezbollah would be a truly nightmarish scenario. That Shia Muslim group has roughly 150,000 missiles and rockets of various ranges in its inventory and boasts a fighting force of about 50,000 soldiers, counting the reservists. A Hezbollah force estimated to be 10,000 strong is operating in southern Syria near the border with Israel. The Jerusalem Post writes that according to experts' estimates as many as 1,500 to 2,000 rockets could be fired into Israel daily during the next war, compared with only about 130-180 that the country received each day during the Second Lebanon War . . .
US President Trump is widely expected to "decertify" the Iran deal next month. The deadline is May 12 . . . The only actor that can prevent a worst-case scenario is Russia, a country with enormous regional clout that has a presence in Lebanon as well as in Syria. It has a military agreement in effect with Beirut and enjoys a special relationship with the Lebanese President Michel Aoun. Russia is the dominant power in Syria that controls both the skies as well as large swaths of land in the de-escalation zones. Unlike the other powers involved, it has good working relations with Israel, Iran, Hezbollah, and the Syrian government, making it a perfect mediator—the sole actor fit for the job . . .

Comment: The God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel agrees with "some experts"—war is inevitable: the faux state of modern Israel will be utterly defeated; the exodus of non-Semitic, anti-Semitic Israeli self-styled Jews will enable the children of Jacob to return to the land of their Covenant for redemption without "fear of the Jews" (Isaiah 6:9-13; 13:6-16; Joel 2:1 – 3:8; Zechariah 14:1-2; Revelation 16:18-19).
Weapons Inspector refutes US Syria Chemical Claims
April 30, 2018—In the 1980's, Scott Ritter was a commissioned officer in the United States Marine Corps, specializing in intelligence. In 1987, Ritter was assigned . . . to go into the Soviet Union and oversee the implementation of the Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty . . . From 1991 to 1998, Ritter served as a chief weapons inspector and led a number of teams into Iraq. According to Ritter . . . US, British and French claims that the Syrian Government used chemical weapons against civilians last month appear to be totally bogus . . . As an American citizen who happens to be empowered with knowledge about how weapons inspections work, how decisions are made regarding war, I am disillusioned beyond belief.
This isn't the first time we have been lied to by the president. But we have been lied to by military officers who are supposed to be above that. Three top Marine Corps officers stood before the American people and told bald-faced lies about what was going on. We have been lied to by Congress . . . by the corporate media . . . paid mouthpieces who repeat what the government tells them without question . . .

DENK, Holland's pro-Islam party founded in 2015 . . . calls for a "racism police force" to monitor allegedly racist comments and actions . . .

How Facebook, Etc., suppress Key Truths
April 30, 2018 — On April 23rd, the great independent investigative journalist, Craig Murray—a former British diplomat—headlined at his blog, "Condemned By Their Own Words," and he posted there the translated-to-English transcript to this Israeli radio Hebrew broadcast on April 21st, in which an Israeli Brigadier-General, named Fogel, explained why Israel's troops are doing the right thing to shoot and even to kill Gazans who come (an unspecified) too close to the wall which separates Israel from Gaza . . . The interviewer didn't challenge any of that, though he didn't like "those pictures are distributed around the world." Israel wants all nations to block the truth. Murray closed by adding a very brief comment of his own: "There is no room to doubt the evil nature of the expansionist apartheid state that Israel has now become. Nor the moral vacuity of its apologists in the western media." Since this was, of course, a damning statement about mainstream 'news' media in The West, these mainstream 'news' media, including Facebook, can be expected to dislike that—and they evidently do.
On April 25th Murray headlined "Blocked By Facebook and the Vulnerability of New Media," and he reported: This site's visitor numbers are currently around one third normal levels, stuck at around 20,000 unique visitors per day. The cause is not hard to find. Normally over half of our visitors arrive via Facebook. These last few days, virtually nothing . . . Full story: strategic-culture.org
Comment: Our Church Website once averaged 1,000 visitors/hour 24/7; a 'blog' that posts our free weekly Church Newsletter now receives less than twenty visitors/week. Algorithms employed by the enemy of Israel's God suppress "the present Truth" (II Peter 1:12; Hosea 4:6; Amos 8:11), and Cain's children are tightening "the squeeze" on children of the God of Israel.

Pentagon Capitalism & Silicon Valley: Google's Drone War Project shows Big Dat's Military Roots
April 9, 2018 — Google—the advertising and search engine monolith that once touted its official commitment, "Don't be evil"—has thrown its full weight behind the US military-industrial complex's fast-advancing unmanned drone program . . . Google's Project Maven is an AI surveillance engine that uses footage captured by the US Armed Forces' unmanned aerial vehicles to detect and track objects such as vehicles, while combing through, organizing, and feeding the processed data to the Pentagon . . . "Over the years, [Google] supplied mapping technology used by the US Army in Iraq, hosted data for the CIA, indexed the NSA's vast intelligence databases, built military robots, co-launched a spy satellite with the Pentagon, and leased its cloud computing platform to help police departments predict crime. And Google is not alone. From Amazon to eBay to Facebook . . . parts of these companies are so thoroughly intertwined with America's security services that it is hard to tell where they end and the US government begins" . . . drones in such locales as Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Syria, Yemen and other theaters of operations have claimed a vast number of civilian lives—over 15,000 in 2017 . . .
In a 1946 memorandum, Eisenhower noted: "The future security of the nation . . . demands that all those civilian resources which by conversion or redirection constitute our main support in time of emergency be associated closely with the activities of the Army in time of peace" . . . "The Internet came out of this effort: an attempt to build computer systems that could collect and share intelligence, watch the world in real time, and study and analyse people and political movements with the ultimate goal of predicting and preventing social upheaval . . ." The rapid advance of digital technology has ensured that the US economy—and social life itself—is now dominated by big-data giants like Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon (GAFA), as well as Microsoft, Intel, Cisco Systems, IBM and Hewlett-Packard. This new technology-dominated market environment, where private user info is parsed, monetized, packaged and sold, has been encapsulated by the well-worn cliché: "data is the new gold" . . . Edward Snowden provided evidence proving that the US NSA and FBI had direct access to the internal servers of nine major tech firms—AOL, Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, PalTalk, Skype, YouTube, and Yahoo—each of which provided direct access through major internet service providers to the NSA through its secret projects like Boundless Informant and Prism . . .

Comment: "The pale horse," stabled in the alien City State of Washington DC, "is ridden by Death (Satan), and Hell follows with him. And authority was granted to them over the fourth part of the earth [under the dominion of Papal Rome, the last Gentile world empire], to kill with sword, and with famine, and with eternal separation, and with brutal, bestial men of the earth" (Revelation 6:8; 13:7-8, 15-18; 19:21).
The Pentagon is planning a three-front long war against China and Russia . . . In Asia, the US and its key allies (South Korea, Japan, the Philippines, and Australia) are to face China across a line extending from the Korean peninsula to the waters of the East and South China Seas and the Indian Ocean. In Europe, the US and its NATO allies will do the same for Russia on a front extending from Scandinavia and the Baltic Republics south to Romania and then east across the Black Sea to the Caucasus. Between these two theatres of contention lies the ever-turbulent Greater Middle East, with the United States and its two crucial [Jewish] allies there, Israel and Saudi Arabia, facing a Russian foothold in Syria and an increasingly assertive Iran, itself drawing closer to China and Russia.
From the Pentagon's perspective, this is to be the defining strategic global map for the foreseeable future (mintpressnews.com). From the biblical perspective, expect the USA to be crippled by unprecedented tectonic activity around April 19, 2019, invaded and garrisoned in June.
UK's Prime Minister Theresa May makes her country US President Donald Trump's lap-dog now in the invasions to come, of North Korea, Russia, and China, leaving Israel to deal with Iran. According to this video Israel has been practicing with another nuclear attack on Syria.
Why the US Regime hates Vladimir Putin
April 29, 2018—On 27 April 2018, Deripaska ceded control over the world's second-largest aluminium-producer, Russal, and he did it because the United States regime had recently placed him and his corporations under new economic sanctions, which are allegedly focused against Russian billionaires who support Putin politically. If Deripaska wouldn't cede control, then the sanctions-hit would be harder and more damaging to Russia's economy, so Deripaska—in fulfilment of his agreement signed with Putin—ceded control. In other words, Deripaska . . . is . . . one of the chief people to 'blame' for Putin's being in office, in Russia's 'dictatorship'.
This threat, by Putin, to Russia's wealthiest (Deripaska having been one of the billionaires whom Putin didn't dispossess when coming into power in 2000), wasn't a staged PR event, but instead was simply the best-filmed instance of Putin's standard policy, ever since becoming Russia's leader: his policy that an aristocrat can lose everything if he places his interests above the nation's interests.
This policy was the fundamental change from the Boris Yeltsin years when Harvard's economics department and the World Bank, during the immediate post-Soviet 1990s, came into Russia and set up the system, working in conjunction with Yeltsin's friends, to funnel the future profits from Russia's vast undervalued natural resources, into partnerships between Yeltsin's friends and US billionaires and affiliated investors. That American-led corruption sent the Russian economy into a tailspin, from which the new Russian President Putin rescued it by laying down the law to the billionaires: that their interests were subordinate to, not dominant above, the nation's interests. This is the principal difference between the ideology of today's America, and of today's Russia . . . To the US regime and its propagandists, Putin is "The Pariah" and "The West's Public Enemy Number One," but to the Russian people, he is the protector of their nation against the US regime's threats to Russia's national sovereignty. More diametrically opposite views of the same man, could hardly even be imagined. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Russia's Seattle Consulate broken into: US Openly Flouts International Obligations
April 28, 2018—They did it again. On April 25, US inspectors broke into the Russian consulate in Seattle, which had been shuttered and vacated at the order of the American government, in a response to the Skripal case. The "inspection" was actually a break-in, since the locks had to be forced. The Russian staff had closed the mansion on April 24 but kept the keys, as the house is still the property of the Russian government. Officially, the Russian Federation (RF) still owns the mansion and its flag still flies from the roof, but the US owns the land and consular activities will no longer be authorized on that site.
The forced entry into the consulate was a flagrant violation of international law . . . what's the use of signing agreements with someone who flouts them? Today they enter foreign compounds, tomorrow they unilaterally pull out of the Iran deal, and then what? The US can walk away from any major arms-control agreement, just like it abandoned the 1972 ABM Treaty in 2002. Washington signs agreements in order to force others to comply with them, while the US enjoys the freedom to interpret them at will. Nothing is binding upon that "shining city on a hill" . . .

Nigeria: Pressure on Buhari to act increases after Latest Massacre
April 26, 2018—On Tuesday (24 April) armed men believed to be Fulani herdsmen stormed a Catholic church in Ukpor-Mbalom community, in Gwer East Local Government Area, killing 19 people, including two priests . . . Nigeria's House of Representatives summoned Buhari over the killings. The assembly also passed a vote of no confidence in the country's service chiefs for the armed forces and all the security advisers to the president. The lawmakers in the lower legislative chambers will suspend sitting for three days in solidarity with Nigerians over the killings . . . "Many people are asking why the international community has remained silent over the massacre of Benue citizens? The answer is simple: It has been the goal of the jihadists to conquer Benue and [the] Tiv people [an ethnic group], who resisted their advance into the Middle Belt since 1804; the people who rejected Islam and fought for the unification of Nigeria in the civil war of 1967 – 1970."

Pakistan: Islamic University opens Christian Chapel
April 20, 2018—For the first time ever, an Islamic university in Pakistan has opened a Christian chapel. The church of St. Mary is located in the atrium of the Agriculture University of Faisalabad, Pakistan's third-most populous city, and was built following an initiative of the city's former vicar general, reports AsiaNews . . . "This church was built with the aim of ensuring the religious needs of Christian students and university workers," said Muhammad Zafar Iqbal, the university's chancellor. "I believe in inter-religious harmony and in the fact that mosques and churches are both sacred places in which to worship God. A university chapel is a living example of Islamic-Christian brotherhood."
Faisalabad is located in the eastern province of Punjab, where a 17-year-old Christian student was killed by his classmates in September—at a High School in the city of Vehari, 200km south of Faisalabad . . . Referring to Pakistan's blasphemy law, Ismail Royer, a member of the new Islam and Religious Freedom Action Team, told OneNewsNow "this law has been used to foment disorder, anarchy, disrespect for the law [and] vigilante mobs, which is bad for all of Pakistan, not to mention how oppressive it is to the people who are subject to it" . . .

The Sinking of Los Angeles and You . . . wherever you Live
Revelation 16:18, "And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake [Los Angeles], such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city [Jerusalem] was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great".
- Did you know that a recent Chilean earthquake elevated parts of the coastline 1,000 feet?
- Alaska's Good Friday earthquake of March, 1964, [spoken by Brother Branham three days earlier] lowered the floor of Seward harbour by 315 feet.
- During the 1755 Lisbon earthquake, a new marble quay upon which crowds of people had collected for safety, suddenly sank. The water now covers it by 600 feet.
- Tuanaki Island in the Cook group sank into the Pacific Ocean with 13,000 inhabitants in 1843. One morning, fishermen left the island in their boats. When they returned home at night, the island was gone.
- In 1923, technicians of a Western Telegraph ship searching for a lost cable in the Atlantic Ocean detected that the cable had been thrown up by the rising ocean bed 2¼ miles in only 25 years. That's right. A 12,000 foot rise in one spot!
- Again in 1929, the Great Banks seaquake cut the northern series of transatlantic cables. When the cables were repaired, measurements of the sea floor indicated that certain areas had suddenly risen almost 5,000 feet.
- In May, 1973, part of the Banin Trench near Japan rose 6,000 feet.
- The 1960 earthquake that reduced the Moroccan city of Agadir to ruins, uplifted the land from about 90 feet close to the shore to around 3,300 feet several miles offshore). This occurred in only 45 seconds!
- In Japan, a few years later, a two-minute quake sank the bottom of the sea around Izu Peninsula well over 1,000 feet. It also sank many houses in the new subdivisions along the coast right into the shale bedrock, which liquefied. This led to comprehensive research to determine how long and of what strength a quake need be to cause rock liquefaction. The result was startling. It was found that medium strength metamorphic rock can liquefy within minutes.
- The December 26, 2004 earthquake off the northern tip of Sumatra uplifted ocean bed in the Straits of Malacca almost 4,000 in about 3 minutes. Full story: beforeus.com
From the Beginning of the Creation God made them Male and Female
In studying Genesis chapters one and two it is essential that we understand four Hebrew words: bara, asah, yatsar, and banah.
Genesis 2:3, "God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work He had created (Heb.) 'bara' out of nothing in His eternal thinking to make (Heb.) 'asah' fashion from existing material." God's "work" throughout six days, each of a thousand years, was to speak those things which He had created in His mind before "the beginning" when time, space and the universe began to come into being (Genesis 2:1; Nehemiah 9:6; Deuteronomy 4:19; 17:3).
Verses 7, 21-22, "And formed (Heb.) 'yatsar,' moulded or squeezed into shape man of the dust of the earth . . . and every beast of the field and every foul of the air." Many years later, after He had finished His creation "the Lord God took a rib from Adam and reconstructed (Heb.) 'banah' woman as an extension or continuation of man".
Verses 8-9, 15-25, "And the Lord God planted a Garden eastward in Eden; and there He put the man whom He had formed (Heb.) 'yatsar.' And out of the ground the Lord God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight, and good for food; the Tree of Life also in the midst of the Garden, and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil . . . And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the Garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it."
"And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the Garden you may freely eat: but of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die."
"And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a suitable helper. And out of the ground the Lord God formed (Heb.) 'yatsar' every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him."
"And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: then He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh at that place; and the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, He rebuilt (Heb.) 'banah' woman as an extension or continuation, and brought her to the man. And the man said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and cleave to his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed".
This is not what is taught in Bible School: it is scripture. God spent about six thousand years "speaking" His creation and preparing earth for man in His own image—Spirit (Genesis 1:26-27; Colossians 1:15), and after His likeness—theophany. For "the spoken Word is the original seed" (Luke 8:11) and your Bible is the story of God changing His form or unfolding Himself from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts (Isaiah 44:24) to the flesh of His glorified Family. Yet when the seven thousandth year dawned there was not a blade of grass or one shrub in the field, not a single tree, no birds or animals, not even a fly, and there was no man to cultivate the soil (Genesis 2:5).
God is not double minded and unstable in His ways; His unchanging Word is "yea yea, and nay nay" thus His seed will only bring forth and reproduce after its kind. As we have read He first formed the man to be god of this earth (Exodus 4:16; John 10:34-36), so there can be no evolution of species, He then formed the animals and brought them to the man to name.
God placed the man and his wife in a paradise eastward in Eden to tend and have the dominion. They could command nature, by their 'third pull' and still the wind or relocate a tree to provide shade (Matthew 21:19-22). With every seed reproducing after its kind there was no death for those seeds were God's spoken Word and Life (John 6:63). The wolf lived in harmony with the lamb, the leopard lay down with the kid, and the calf and the young lion and the fatling fed together on vegetation so that nothing died. So long as Adam and Eve obeyed every Word that proceeded from the mouth of God they were veiled by the Holy Spirit; although they were naked, they knew it not and were innocent. Now, after an additional six thousand years, sinful men have built Satan's Eden of worldliness veiled by lust to satisfy the natural senses of their flesh and mortal spirit; they travel to and fro and instead of growing into the image of God by faith, worldly knowledge has increased ungodliness (Daniel 12:4, 10; II Timothy 3:1 - 4:4; Revelation 3:17-20; 22:11).
Genesis 3:1-12, "Now among all the beasts that the Lord God had made the Serpent alone was subtle and crafty." [He was a beast so close to a human being that he could reason and talk (yet without a soul he was pure animal). An upright creature with legs before God changed every bone in his body (Genesis 3:14; Ezekiel 28:14; II Corinthians 11:3; Revelation 20:2), he was so close to being human that his seed could and did mingle with that of the woman and cause her to conceive. Josephus wrote, "When God had deprived him of the use of his feet, he made him to go rolling all along, and dragging himself upon the ground" (Antiquities of the Jews, i, 1, 4)]. In questioning surprise, which may have in view now a "yes," and now a "no," he cautiously shows a tendency to excite doubt, to awaken mistrust, and to weaken the force of prohibition. He said to the woman, "Yes, has God said, You shall not eat of every tree of the Garden?" [As this assault is directed against the Covenant of God with men, the Tempter in possession of the Serpent does not recognize God as Jehovah Elohim, the Covenant-God. Neither Mr. nor Mrs. Serpent addressed the man, because he was God's spoken Word manifest and could not be deceived on the revealed Word of God whereas the woman was not "created" (Heb.) 'bara' by the spoken Word but "reconstructed" (Heb.) 'banah' as a by-product from Adam's rib years after God had finished creation and Adam had named the animals. And the woman said to the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the Garden, but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the Garden, God has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it (I Corinthians 7:1), lest you die. And the Serpent said to the woman, You shall not surely die: for God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like gods, knowing good and evil".
Thus the truth of God's threatening is stoutly denied and the way from doubt to unbelief is opened through this false assurance. The Serpent has denied all consequences arising from the forbidden enjoyment whilst promising more glorious fruits therefrom. Instead of your eyes closing in death, they will be opened for the first time. "And when the woman perceived that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he ate. Then the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. And they heard the Voice of the Lord God walking in the Garden in the evening breeze: and the man and his wife hid themselves from the Presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the Garden. And the Lord God called to the man, and said to him, Where are you? And he said, I heard your voice in the Garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself."
"And He said, Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded you not to eat? And the man said, The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate. And the Lord God said to the woman, What is this that you have done? And the woman said, The Serpent beguiled me, and I ate [she was seduced]." In verse 10 both the man and his wife were conscious of their nakedness. This sudden awareness and shame did not arise from eating an apple, even a rotten apple, else they might have covered their mouths but the woman had conceived by both the Serpent and her husband in quick succession nine months before Genesis 4:1-2 when she bore the Serpent's son Cain, and her husband's son Abel (Genesis 3:16-22; I Timothy 2:9-15).
Every woman is a fruit tree. We are the fruit of our mother. In consequence of the 'original sin' "I was brought forth in iniquity [by Adam]; and in sin did my mother [Eve] conceive me" (Psalm 51:5). Thus "Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He comes forth like a flower, and is cut down: he flees as a shadow, and continues not" (Job 14:1-2). Eve did not wait for her prophet husband to receive the revelation from God and instruct her as to how they should fulfil His commission to "Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it" (Genesis 1:28).
I Timothy 2:14, "Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression." Our natural birth was conceived by Satan's wisdom so we all die and must be spiritually reborn by the Man Christ Jesus. Thus woman is a tree of death: man is a tree of life who can beget through woman as an incubator (I Corinthians 11:12). "For the life of the flesh is in the blood" and the constituents that our glands secrete into sperm come from the blood of our father. Our mother provides the ovum or "egg," but it has not one speck of her blood and is infertile until it is germinated by the product of the father's blood—his sperm—causing the ovum to produce a body.
When mother gives birth the shock of cold air causes baby to inhale, receive its mortal spirit and soul. Baby is not its body or mortal spirit but its soul. As the ova in a virgin cannot be quickened to reproduce after her kind until she marries Mr. Right and the life passes from his body to germinate the ova, so your soul is dormant until the love of its spiritual Husband Jesus Christ passes the Word for the hour through His Body the Church, for the soul of God's elect can only be quickened or born-again by what II Peter 1:12 calls "the present truth".
Jesus is the Tree of Life. John 6:51, "I am the living Bread which came down from heaven; if any man eat of this Bread, he shall live forever".
The two trees in the midst of the Garden of Eden were the Tree of Life, the theophany of Christ; and His adversary "Lucifer, son of the morning." Once God's right-hand man to fellowship he consummated all that constitutes completeness—"full of wisdom and perfect in beauty . . . blameless in his ways from the day he was created, until iniquity and guilt were found in him" (Isaiah 14:12; Ezekiel 28:12-15). Even so two vines make up the church, like the wheat and tares growing up side by side. But one is the TRUE and the other is the FALSE. Throughout the Christian dispensation Jesus speaks to and about each one, calling them "the churches." Only the elect will really know which is the true Spirit, and only the elect will not be deceived.
Throughout scripture trees refer to persons, as in Psalms 1, and as Balaam described Israel as "trees of lign aloes which the Lord has planted" (Numbers 24:6). Thus the "Tree of Life" must be the Person of Life, Jesus Christ. He sets Himself forth as the source of eternal life (John 6 – 8). He called Himself the Bread from heaven and spoke of giving Himself and that if a man ate of Him he would never die. He proclaimed that He knew Abraham, and that before Abraham, He was. He prophesied that He Himself would give them living waters that if man drank he would never thirst again, but live eternally. He showed Himself as the Great I Am. He is the Bread of Life, the Well of Life, the Eternal One, "the Tree of Life." He was back there in Eden in the midst of the Garden even as He will be in the midst of the paradise of God (John 5:11, 40; Revelation 2:7).
I John 5:12, "He who has the Son has Life; and he who does not have the Son of God does not have Life." Now since the record cannot change, be taken from or added to, then the record stands that the Life is in the Son. Since this is so, "the Tree of Life" in the Garden has to be Jesus. And if "the Tree of Life" is a Person, then "the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil" is a person also. It cannot be otherwise. Thus the Righteous One and the Wicked One stood side by side there in the midst of the Garden of Eden. Ezekiel 28:13a "You (Satan) have been in Eden, the Garden of God".
"Let us go back to the beginning. In the original physical creation as we know it today, God made everything in pairs, male and female. There were two chickens—rooster and hen. There were two cattle, the cow and the bull. And right down the line. But when it came to man, there was only one. They were not a pair. Adam had been made in the image of God. He was a son of God. As a son of God he could be tempted but he could not fall. That would be impossible. So God took a by-product of man to cause the fall. Woman never stepped fresh from the hand of God as a true product of God. She was produced from man. And when God caused her to be brought forth from man she was vastly different from the other females He had created. She was able to be seduced. No other female in creation can be immoral; but the human female may be touched at almost any time. And that weakness in her allowed Satan to seduce her by way of the serpent, and has brought the woman to a very peculiar position before God and His Word. She is the type of all things vulgar, foul and loathsome on the one hand, and on the other hand she is the type of all things clean and beautiful and holy, as the receptacle of the Spirit and blessings of God. On the one hand she is called the whore who is drunk with the wine of her fornications. On the other she is called the Bride of Christ. On one hand she is called Mystery Babylon, the abomination before God; and on the other hand she is called New Jerusalem, our mother. On the one hand she is so foul and wicked and lewd that she is summarily cast into the lake of fire as the only fit place for her; and on the other hand she is exalted to heaven, sharing the very throne of God as the only place befitting such a queen" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 215:2).
We are in the 'rapture,' growing to maturity in the fulness of the Word for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. "Whatever seed started the church will come forth and be like the original seed because it is the same seed. In these last days the true Bride Church (Christ's seed) will come to the Headstone, and she will be the super church, a super race, as she nears Him. They in the Bride will be so much like Him that they will even be in His very image. This is in order to be united with Him. They will be one. They will be the very manifestation of the Word of the living God. Denominations cannot produce this (wrong seed). They will produce their creeds and their dogmas, mixed with the Word. This mongrelizing brings forth a hybrid product."
"The first son (Adam) was the spoken seed-Word of God. He was given a bride to reproduce himself. That is why the bride was given to him, to reproduce himself; to produce another son of God. But she fell. She fell by hybridization. She caused him to die."
"The second Son (Jesus), also a spoken Seed-Word of God was given a bride as was Adam. But before He could marry her, she also had fallen. She, too, was put to the test whether she would believe the Word of God and live, or doubt the Word and die. She doubted. She left the Word. She died."
"From a little group of the true seed of the Word, God will present Christ with a beloved Bride. She is a virgin to His Word. She is a virgin because she knows no man-made creeds or dogmas. By and through the members of the Bride will be fulfilled all that was promised of God to be made manifest in the virgin."
"The Word of promise came to the virgin Mary. But that Word of promise was He, Himself, to be made manifest. God was made manifest. He, Himself, acted at that time and fulfilled His own Word of promise in the virgin. It was an angel that had brought her the Message. But the angel's Message was the Word of God (Isaiah 9:6). He fulfilled all that was written of Him because she accepted His Word to her."
"The members of the virgin Bride will love Him, and they will have His potentials, for He is their Head, and all power belongs to Him. They are subject to Him as the members of our bodies are subject to our heads."
"Notice the harmony of the Father and the Son. Jesus never did anything until it was first showed Him by the Father (John 5:19). This harmony is now to exist between the Groom and His Bride. He shows her His Word of Life. She receives it. She never doubts it. Therefore, nothing can harm her, not even death. For if the seed be planted, the water will raise it up again. Here is the secret of this. The Word is in the Bride (as it was in Mary). The Bride has the mind of Christ for she knows what He wants done with the Word. She performs the command of the Word in His Name for she has "thus saith the Lord." Then it is quickened by the Spirit and it comes to pass. Like a seed that is planted and watered, it comes to full harvest, serving its purpose."
"Those in the Bride do only His will. No one can make them do otherwise. They have 'thus saith the Lord' or they keep still. They know that it has to be God in them doing the works, fulfilling His own Word. He did not complete all His work while in His earthly ministry so now He works in and through the Bride. She knows that, for it was not yet time for Him to do certain things that He must now do. But He will now fulfil through the Bride that work which He left for this specific time."
Let us take a closer look at Eve's children. Genesis 3:20 says, "And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living." In Genesis 4:1 Eve said, "I have gotten a man from the Lord." She does not credit Adam as Cain's father. Genesis 4:25 tells us that Adam was not Cain's father, for "Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, has appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew." Of these three boys Cain was not Adam's son: nine months after her seduction Eve was still deceived by the Devil's lie. When she says "another seed instead of Abel," she is saying that Cain was begotten by a different father, for if they were of the same father she would have said, "I have been given some more seed" (I John 3:12; 2:13-14).
Genesis 3:14-15, "And the Lord God said to the Serpent, Because you have done this, you are cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; [off with your legs] upon your belly you will go, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life: and I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; It shall bruise your head [Satan], and you shall bruise His heel".
"As the Seed of the woman was literally God reproducing Himself in human flesh, so the seed of the Serpent is the literal way that Satan found he was able to open the door to himself into the human race. It was impossible for Satan (for he is only a created spirit-being) to reproduce himself in the manner which God reproduced Himself, so the Genesis account tells how he produced his seed and vicariously introduced himself into the human race. Also recall that Satan is called the Serpent." It is the injection of his seed into the human race that we are speaking of. Before Adam ever had carnal knowledge of Eve, the Serpent had that knowledge ahead of him. And the one born of it was Cain: I John 3:12, "Cain was begotten of that Wicked One" whereas "Adam was the son of God" (Luke 3:38).
This explains why Cain hated his half-brother as his father Lucifer was jealous of Michael and was a murderer. Abel was a type of Christ; when Abel was killed, Seth took his place: death, burial, and resurrection of Christ in type.
Cain worshipped just as the carnal believer today attends church and worships. He was a sincere believer who loved God; like Abel he built an altar, brought a sacrifice, paid tithes, knelt down and praised God. And God refused him and his sacrifice because he lacked a revelation of the will of God. Jesus said He would build His Church on Spiritual revelation from Above: we must enjoy personal relationship and mutual communion with God.
You may trace the natural and spiritual Serpent's seed to Noah's ark in your own Bible. The besetting sin in Noah's day was miscegenation between Cain's race and Adam's race (Genesis 6:1-4). Miscegenation with Cain's race is genocide to Adam's race. Jesus prophesied "as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming of the coming of the Son of man." Laodicea being over, Christ's mediation in the office Son of God was fulfilled and He claimed the Book of Redemption and loosed its Seven Seals. The revelation of the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10, which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals, brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form in the prophetic office Son of Man and Judge (John 5:21-27; Revelation 4; 5; 10:1-7). Miscegenation is accursed of God; Cain's race is not in the Book of Life which is Adam's genealogy. Every seed is to bring forth after its own kind but our alien rulers, self-seeking politicians and apostate churchmen applaud miscegenation under the euphemism 'multiculturalism': they are fulfilling Revelation 3:17-20 "and know it not".
On this side of the Flood you may follow the natural Serpent's seed to Naamah and her illegitimate son Canaan. Naamah was Noah's wife, but not the mother of his three sons. She seduced Ham who together with his wife was not in the faith. This brings us to Sodom and the five debauched cities on the plain. Jesus prophesied, "As it was in the days of Lot . . . so shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed" (Luke 17:28-30). The world is in a Sodom condition: homosexuality, 'same sex' marriage, cross-dressing, transgender operations and feminism are approved and universally promoted by authorities. Yet "from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female." Furthermore, "As it was in the days of Lot," three messengers have visited the apostate (once) Christian West. Billy Graham and Oral Roberts ministered to the churches in Sodom, while William Branham ministered to Abraham's separated and elect group, revealing the Son of man, Jesus Christ, the same yesterday and today and forever by discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 13:8; 4:12). As it was in the days of His flesh the denominations have "crucified to themselves the Son of God afresh and put Him to open shame" (Hebrews 6:6; Revelation 3:20).
Esau despised his birthright and married Hittites, siring the Serpent's seed nation Edom and the Herodian dynasty that ruled Judea and crucified Messiah in behalf of all Israel (Matthew 27:25). When the Judahites returned from the Captivity Ezra commanded them to put away their Serpent's seed wives and children (Ezra 10). In 129BC Judah's high priest John Hyrcanus engaged mercenaries and conquered Edom, then forcibly assimilated them in 125BC. "They were hereafter no other than Jews" (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, xiii, 9, 1). According to statistics published in Encyclopaedia Judaica and the works of Jewry's most eminent scholars, few Jews (so-called) are Semitic.
In his Foreword to the Babylonian Talmud, the Very Rev. the Chief Rabbi Dr. J. H. Hertz declared, "The Talmud is the product of Palestine, the land of the Bible, and of Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilisation. The beginnings of Talmudic literature date back to the time of the Babylonian Exile in the sixth pre-Christian century . . . When we come to the Babylonian Gerama, we are dealing with what most people understand when they speak or write of the Talmud. It's birthplace, Babylonia, was a autonomous Jewish centre for a longer period than any other land, namely, soon after 586 before the Christian era to the year 1040 after the Christian era—1,626 years . . ." Only a minority of Judaics returned from the Captivity and Babylon remained the centre of Jewish scholarship.
"With the destruction of their Temple . . . Henceforth, Jewish life was regulated by the teachings of the Pharisees . . . Pharisaism shaped the character of Judaism and the life and thought of the Jew for all the future" (The Jewish Encyclopedia: (1905) P. 665). The Babylonian Talmud is based upon the "Slave-Trading Codes" of ancient Babylon and "makes the commandments of God of none effect" (Matthew 15:5) and has transformed the Judeans into spiritual Serpent's seed like Lot, his daughters, and Moab and Ammon.
With the extinction of the Sadducees, the only Jewish entity which thereafter stood in opposition to the Pharisees and their Babylonian Talmud were the Christians, almost exclusively Israelite converts until the sixth century. The powers in Rome itself were compromised by this influence. The Pharisees murdered Israel's Messiah, then in league with pagan Emperor Constantine three hundred years later, adopted and renamed the Babylonian trinity Rome worshipped and organized the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church that impersonates the Temple worship as Jesus foretold: "I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan" (Revelation 2:9; 3:9).
If you follow the links you will discover the sinister import of 'stars' on flags and strengthen yourself in the faith of Jesus Christ. In this day ministers who possess the scripture explain their theology without spiritual revelation. "Woe to men ordained to this condemnation, for they have gone in the way of Cain, [not having faith]; and run greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perish in the gainsaying of Korah" (Jude 11). The great Martin Luther went to his reward five hundred years ago, yet today there are more Judaeo-Roman Catholics than ever: "unashamedly naked" once Protestant churches impersonating the Word for a bygone day are returning to mother Rome, the second Eve, "to kill all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond who refuse her mark of the beast" (Revelation 13:15-18; 17:5).
For fifty-five years Jesus has been calling the wise and foolish virgins OUT from Rome and her denominational harlot daughter churches "that they be not partakers of her sins and receive not of her plagues . . . Today if you will hear His voice, harden not your heart as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness" (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4; Hebrews 3:7-8). nl1023.htm
