The New Grand Strategy of the United States
March 26, 2019 — Without the Soviet Union, the world had become unipolar . . . no longer governed by the Security Council, but by the United States alone. In order to maintain its dominant position, it was obliged to 'lose some to gain more' . . . to divide Humanity in two. On one side, the stable states, meaning the members of the G8—Russia included—and their allies), and on the other side, the rest of the world, viewed as a simple reservoir of natural resources. Washington no longer considered access to these resources as vital for itself, but intended for them to become accessible to the stable states only by permission of the USA. From that point on, it would be necessary to destroy—preventively—all the state structures in these reservoirs of resources, so that no-one could either challenge the will of the top world power, or do without it. [This explains General Wesley Clark's discovery that the Pentagon had planned to take down seven countries in five years – Ed].
Since then, this strategy has been implemented ceaselessly. It began in the Greater Middle East (Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Syria, Yemen). However, contrary to what had been announced by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, (Pivot to Asia), it was not continued into the Far East, due to the military development of China, but in the Caribbean Basin (Venezuela, Nicaragua) . . . The main force of this new Grand Strategy resides in the fact that it has not been understood by the elites of the rest of the world. Washington therefore retains the effect of surprise, reinforced by the deliberately chaotic communications of Donald Trump. If we look at the facts instead of the Presidential tweets, we note the advance of the United States after the double period of uncertainty under Presidents Clinton and Obama . . .

Comment: The United States is the image of Imperial Rome as the apostate (once) Protestant churches are the image of Papal Rome (Revelation 13:11-18).
UNO destroyed by US 'Exceptionalism'
April 2, 2019 — On 26 March 2019, the United States recognised Israeli sovereignty over occupied Golan, meaning the acquisition of territories by war. By doing so, they recanted their 52-year-old vote in the Security Council concerning the Golan, and also the principles of the UN Charter which, for 74 years, have governed the elaboration of international law . . . from this moment on, UNO resolutions will have only a relative value, since they are unable to force the obedience of those who adopted them. The process of deconstruction of international law has begun. We are entering a period governed by the survival of the fittest . . . the United States have recanted their vote in the Security Council . . .
After having dominated the world, the weakened United States now give up on the United Nations. In order to conserve their dominant position, they are retreating to the one part of the world that they still control. Until now, Russia and China had considered them, according to the image used by Sergueï Lavrov, as a ferocious but dying beast which we must benevolently escort towards its death, making sure that is doesn't provoke a catastrophe on the way. But the United States ended their decline by electing Donald Trump, who, having lost the majority in the House of Representatives, allied himself with the US deep state (attested to by the nomination of Elliott Abrams and the withdrawal of the accusation of collusion with the enemy brought by prosecutor Robert Mueller in order to remain in power) . . . Unlike the Cold War, when it was difficult to cross the boundary between East and West in either direction . . . the new system should allow travel and commerce between one region and the other, but will have to be organised around two models of Law . . . the post-Western world announced by Russian Minister for Foreign Affairs Sergueï Lavrov on 28 September 2018, at the forum of the General Assembly of the United Nations . . .

Chairman of New Zealand's Biggest Mosque: Mossad behind Christchurch Massacre
April 1, 2019 — Ahmed Bhamji, who leads the Mt. Roskill Masjid E Umar mosque in Auckland, made these remarks at a rally organised by Love New Zealand Hate Racism on Saturday. During a speech, he said Israeli intelligence agency Mossad was behind the attack and accused suspect Brenton Tarrant of getting funding from 'Zionist business.' Full story: dailymail.co.uk
Comment: However terror suspect Brenton Tarrant posted a manifesto online before the killings identifying himself as a racist white supremacist, but did NOT mention any links to Israel.
Without knowledge of Scripture or Christianity Brenton Tarrant saw the repetition of the besetting sin of Noah's day prophesied by Jesus Christ. Genesis 6:1-13 confirms we live in a comparably prosperous technologically advanced civilization—eat, drink, trade, plant, build, free love, serial monogamy and miscegenation ('multiculturalism') despite God warning in a violence-ridden world wherein, "the wickedness of man is great and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart is only evil continually" from the Jews' Hollywood and television. Matthew 24:37-51, "As it was in the days of Noah, so shall also the (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming of the Son of man be." Miscegenation was the 'original' sin and is accursed of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob because intermarriage with Cain's lineage is genocide to Adam's race as any offspring is absent the Book of Life (Genesis 1:11, 25; 3 – 4; 6:1-4; 11:6-9). The Law of Redemption demands a near KINSMAN pay sin's price, which is death (Exodus 21:23-25; Romans 8:23). Through the virgin birth God put on sinless flesh, died and was raised for our justification. Jesus Messiah was the Last Adam, He was not the last Cain whose race is irredeemable. Matthew 24:37 was fulfilled in March 1963 when the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form with divine vindication. This initiated "the end-time" (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:1-4; 15:16). For fifty-six years Christ has since been calling the wise and foolish virgins OUT from the apostate world church system (Romans 11:32; Revelation 3:17-20) INTO maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16a; Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:52).
Like the Islamic mercenaries al Qaeda, Daesh, Al Nusra, et al—recruited, trained, funded, armed, fed and directed by the Pentagon, CIA, NATO, Mossad and the Dönmeh Jew Saudi royals, Brenton Tarrant was trying (Heb.) 'Tikkun Olam' to repair the world that is falling apart again. He needs Christ whom the earthbound worldly church does not know. Soon we will enter the final year of the Christian dispensation, thereafter the Lord will take His children Home and send two Hebrew prophets to minister to an election of blood Israelites in the Land of the Covenant, followed by the consummation.
God's Covenant with Abraham is of no effect to hypocritical Israelites and self-styled Jews living outside the Land of Israel. Likewise God told Abraham his son Ishmael "will be like a wild ass—[untameable, strong, free, roaming, suspicious, and untrustworthy, living wild in the desert]—his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell to the east of all his brethren [the Israelites, Ammonites and Moabites, the descendants of Keturah, Edomites and Jews]." What God told His prophet Abraham seems of scant importance to the children of Jacob or Ishmael living unlawfully in the flesh pots of the world.
Brenton Tarrant's manifesto should not be hidden but read for his observations of truth condemn New Zealand and the apostate (once) Christian world; his mortal actions and threats are mild in comparison to Judaeo-Roman Catholicism and Judaeo-Communism whose victims number hundreds of millions and billions, thanks to the lewd Babylonian Talmud that views non-Jews as "beasts with two legs G_d made in human form to serve Jews," and that "the best of the Gentiles should be killed" (Bereshith 25a; Kiddushin 66c; Soferim 15, Rule 10)! Daily they murder in places such as Palestine, Syria, Iran, Ukraine, Yemen, Lebanon, Libya, Myanmar and elsewhere. The Koran reads like its facsimile, stating us kaffirs, non-Muslims or infidels should be killed, and we are killed by the score. The Jew-ruled colonies of the City of London, Israel, Britain and the USA, Australia, scores of "allies" and NATO, are killing innocent people throughout the world, and preparing to attack Russia and China in order to maintain the reserve status of the US dollar and the corrupt fractional reserve banking racket of the non-Semitic international Jews. Yet neither the Talmud nor the Koran are restricted publications.
Satan, whose name is Death, is the god of this evil age riding his sickly green coloured horse to perdition (Revelation 6:8). All religion is of the Devil, God is in His unchanging Word which is Spirit in a form we can receive by faith with eternal Life (John 6:63). He has placed all men on the basis of free moral agency to "work out their own salvation with fear and trembling" and the time is short!
'Muhammad': Regeh Omaar's Fundamental Flaw
July 12, 2011 This is a refutation from the Rev. Dr. Alan Clifford of BBC2's predictably biased July 11 documentary on Mohammed, Part 1 of 3.
"Among the several flaws in Rageh Omaar's presentation is the fundamental claim that illiterate Muhammad could not have accessed Jewish, Christian and other supposed sources for the text of the Qur'an. However, what he couldn't read he heard well with his ears. His several acquaintances provided a range of material eventually reflected in the Qur'anic text. This includes ancient Arabic, Zoroastrian and Hindu beliefs as well as Jewish and sub-Christian ideas. This is irrefutable, as the scholarly demonstration of the Rev. W. St Clair-Tisdall, MA proved long ago in his book, "Sources of Islam".
In short, since the Qur'an's teaching is traceable to pre-6th century systems of thought, the claim that it came 'direct from heaven' simply falls to the ground. Hence, what is good in the Qur'an is not original, and what is original is not good. The early 'revelation' that there should be 'no compulsion in religion' was eventually abrogated in favour of the violent and bloody revelations which directed Islam's later conquests.
Of this we may be totally sure: Islam is not a religion of peace and its origins are certainly not divine: Dr. Alan C. Clifford.
Comment: The US has spent 700,000,000 taxpayer dollars refurbishing foreign mosques! The Prophet William Branham said, "We had a great nation; but she is now rottening and crumbling and shaking and giving away, and trying to tax people to get money to send over yonder to buy friendship with our enemies. They're throwing it back in our face. One world war, two world wars, and still moving on to a third one" (This Day, this Scripture is Fulfilled, p. 16:131-132). Australia and New Zealand are blindly following their bankrupt and apostate (once) great and powerful friend that will soon be invaded and can never win another war.
Lawyers Worldwide urge International Court investigate Israeli Crimes
April 1, 2019 — On the eve of the first anniversary of the "Great March of Return" at the Gaza border, lawyers and jurists around the world are calling on the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate and prosecute Israeli crimes against the Palestinians.
Today, the International Association of Democratic Lawyers presented a petition from the International Lawyers Campaign for the Investigation and Prosecution of Crimes Committed Against the Palestinian People to Fatou Bensouda, chief prosecutor of the ICC. The petition urges Bensouda to initiate a full investigation and prosecute violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law committed by Israeli officials in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. The petition has garnered the support of tens of thousands of lawyers worldwide.
The petition condemns "the unimaginable atrocities that have been committed and continue to be committed by Israel against Palestinian civilians which deeply shock the conscience of humanity" . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Judge Rules Trump Plans to open up Swathes of Arctic, Atlantic Oceans for Drilling Illegal
April 1, 2019 — US District Judge Sharon Gleason's decision impacts around 98 per cent of the Arctic Ocean, but only "undersea canyons in the Atlantic, as opposed to the entire Eastern Seaboard" (which is deemed important to wildlife including "marine mammals, deep-water corals, valuable fish populations and migratory whales, the Associated Press wrote). The judge found that while the president has the power under the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act to withdraw leasing permits, that office cannot unilaterally grant permits without the approval of Congress . . . "if a president wants to reverse a predecessor's environmental policy, they have to give a cogent reason why. Just saying 'energy dominance' is not enough. Saying 'I won the election' is not enough" . . . Full story: gizmodo.com.au
DoD orders $250 Million of Gas Masks – what do They Know?
March 29, 2019 — The US Department of Defense (DoD) has awarded Avon Protection Systems Inc., Cadillac, Michigan, a $245,961,250 firm-fixed-price contract for production of M53A1 Chemical Biological Protective Mask systems . . . will start delivery in the second half of this financial year ending September . . . M53A1 . . . "provides excellent protection against traditional chemical and biological warfare agents, select Toxic Industrial Materials (TIMs) and particulate matter including radioactive dust" . . . protects soldiers from chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear attacks . . . mustard, sarin, soman, and VX nerve agents . . . The order comes one month after the US government introduced science-based guidelines for how first responders decontaminate large numbers of Americans after a chemical-weapons attack . . . "Terrorist threats and the use of chemical weapons in Syria have heightened awareness of the need for improved preparedness against chemical attacks" . . . With lightning speed, the Army and US government have been actively preparing for a biological incident on the homeland . . . the act of preparation suggests some fears that an attack of some sort could be imminent. Full story: zerohedge.com
Comment: What the US government has not said is that Pentagon, CIA and NATO mercenaries made "use of chemical weapons in Syria."
It is 2019; Brother Branham's said, "Oh, brother, give me a church full of the Holy Ghost. God will do in one year what all theology's failed to do in two thousand years. You wait till the anointing of the church really strikes home to that faithful the little remnant. After the doors of the Gentiles is closed, oh, God will anoint a church then. "He who's filthy, let him be filthy still. He who's righteous let him be righteous still, and he who's holy let him be holy still." And God will anoint the church with the power of God, and things will be taken place. Not only that then, but He's doing it now" (COD, p. 145:203).
Syria: is US Fighting ISIS or Liquidating Assets?
March 28, 2019 — That the "final stronghold" of the self-proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS) resides in US occupied territory in Syria says it all. From US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) memos dating back to 2012 noting efforts to create a "Salafist" [Islamic] "principality" [State] in eastern Syria precisely where ISIS rose and now clings to its "final stronghold," to the obvious fact that ISIS' fighting capacity was only possible through extensive state sponsorship—it was already clear that the US and its partners in regime change against Syria had been using terrorists including ISIS as proxy ground forces.
Now the US claims it has cornered and is on the verge of defeating ISIS—despite the terrorist group having been cleared out of virtually every other corner of the nation by Syrian, Russian, Iranian, and Hezbollah forces long ago.
In reality, the US is merely liquidating assets it had harboured, protected, armed, and funded throughout the 8 year proxy war until no longer politically feasible . . . it seems Washington has singled interest in sending foreign fighters back to their countries of origin—which means many will simply be reintegrated into society where local intelligence agencies will keep tabs on them, use them for domestic distractions, or redeploy them to Washington's next proxy war when required . . . The rise of Iranian-backed militias throughout Iraq has become a potent counterweight to US-backed proxies attempting to take root there once again, and will make it infinitely more difficult for the US to repeat the scale and duration of the ISIS scourge the US visited upon the region . . .

Comment: March 23, 2019 journalist Vanessa Beeley entered the Syrian Christian town of Al Skeilbiyyeh. Between 4 and 5pm, at least four villages to the west of the town were attacked by Hayat Tahrir Al Sham (HTS) forces embedded to the north of the villages. HTS is a poorly disguised rebrand of Al Qaeda or Nusra Front in Syria and now controls the majority of Idleb province and terrorist-held areas of Northern Hama bordering Al Skeilbiyyeh. The villages of al-Rasif, al-Aziziyyeh, al-Khandaq and al-Jayyid were hit by an estimated 5 mortars. 34 victims of a suspected chemical attack were brought to Al Skeilbiyyeh hospital . . .

Xi's Visit Sets Tone for China-EU Relations
March 27, 2019 — Xi visited Italy, Monaco and France from March 21 to 26 and held "unprecedented" talks on building new global governance with the leaders of France, Germany and the EU in Paris. During the visit, Italy became the first Group of Seven nation to join the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and also agreed to return 796 sets of Chinese cultural relics. China and France signed an agreement on future space cooperation in Paris, allowing France to fly its experiments on the Chang'e-6 mission.
The application of 5G in Monaco, which will become the first country in the world to be fully covered by a nationwide 5G mobile network, promotes China's efforts in information infrastructure construction in Europe, analysts noted . . . Full story: globaltimes.cn
Comment: Less than a week ago, President Macron was lambasting Italy for signing agreements with China in the context of their New Silk Road, alias President Xi Jinping's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), in the same breath he was criticizing China for attempting to undermine Europe with new trade individual country deals under the pretext of BRI. However, Italy, also scolded by Brussels for her single-handed deals with China, was, in fact, the first G7 country for signing a number of contracts with China to use Italian ports under the BRI, making Italy also the first official EU partner of China's BRI (globalresearch.ca). The China deal has the potential to change the geopolitics of not only the EU but also most of the world . . . While much attention has focused on the role of high-speed rail infrastructure as the backbone of the ambitious China BRI project . . . what may be a far more strategic geopolitical development [is] China's ability to own or control the most vital ports of Asia, of Africa, major parts of Latin America and now . . . of the European Union . . . Chinese companies have participated in the construction and operation of a total of 42 ports in 34 countries under its Belt and Road initiative . . . (globalresearch.ca).
Massive Coalition backs Trump's Climate Science Committee
March 20, 2019 — A massive coalition of environmental organizations, activists, and think-tank leaders signed a letter to President Donald Trump supporting the proposed Presidential Commission on Climate Security (PCCS), as well as the work of Trump climate and national security adviser Dr. William Happer (youtube.com) of Princeton University. The campaign, which comes amid fierce establishment resistance to re-examining government "climate science," also backs an independent scientific review of the increasingly dubious claims made in federal climate reports. Analysts say this battle will be crucial in establishing the credibility of government climate science—or the lack thereof . . . Full story: thenewamerican.com
Comment: Atmospheric CO2 cannot warm planet earth; much more atmospheric CO2 would be beneficial to all. Present warming is a natural function of The Sun's Milankovitch Cycle. Anthropogenic climate change is a far bigger hoax than the claimed extermination of six million Jews in World War I, the claimed extermination of six million Jews between the wars by the Jew-ruled USSR, and the claimed extermination of six million Jews in World War II: all four of these hoaxes were perpetrated by the same party that impersonates Semitic Israelites and whose objective is deindustrialization of the (once) Christian West, the genocide of all but 500,000 to two million and global hegemony (Genesis 3:15; John 8:44).
The Making of a Monster: we're all Lab Rats in the Government's Secret Experiments

In California, older prisoners had testicles from livestock and from recently executed convicts implanted in them to test their virility. In Connecticut, mental patients were injected with hepatitis . . .
In Guatemala, prisoners and patients at a mental hospital were infected with syphilis . . . In Uganda, US-funded doctors "failed to give the AIDS drug AZT to all the HIV-infected pregnant women in a study . . . even though it would have protected their newborns" . . . in Nigeria, children with meningitis were used to test an antibiotic named Trovan.

Kosovo War at 20: How Britain and America backed Jihadists throughout Conflict
March 27, 2019 — On 24 March 1999, NATO launched a 78-day-long bombing campaign against the then-Republic of Yugoslavia. Still hailed by the Western mainstream as a successful 'humanitarian intervention', the true story of the conflict's roots and legacy is far darker, and points to extensive collaboration between London, Washington and extremist Islamist forces.
The official narrative of the Kosovo War states Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic, President of Yugoslavia, intended to create a 'Greater Serbia' via the annexation of Kosovo, and the 'ethnic cleansing' of its Albanian and Muslim population. Such was the genocidal terror and violence unleashed against civilians, NATO had no choice but to intervene militarily to avert the eradication of hundreds of thousands of people.
This stirring tale would almost completely unravel not long afterward. For one, it's become increasingly clear the bulk of the atrocities committed in Kosovo took place after the NATO campaign began, and certainly weren't restricted to Yugoslavian or Serbian forces . . . Moreover, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, a United Nations body established to prosecute serious crimes committed during the Yugoslav Wars and their perpetrators, would eventually conclude Yugoslav troops had at most tried to remove rather than eradicate the Albanian population, and Milosevic—who died in a UN prison in 2006 — would be posthumously exonerated of all charges . . .

Ukrainian Security Official says Ukraine shot down MH-17
March 25, 2019 — The Ukrainian side was involved in the MH17 flight disaster over Donbass, a former officer of the Ukrainian security service SBU, Vasily Prozorov, told a news conference on Monday. "It is my personal opinion and it relies on certain information. The Ukrainian side is an accomplice to the Malaysian MH17 flight disaster," he said.
"The amazingly prompt reaction of the Ukrainian leadership was the first thing that made me feel suspicious. My unequivocal opinion was President Pyotr Poroshenko and his press-service had prior knowledge of the affair. Secondly, hostilities had been underway for several months by then, but the airspace over the area was not closed," Prozorov said. In particular he emphasized the invariable response to all of his attempts to find out the circumstances of the disaster, for instance, a conversation with General Staff officers. The usual reply was: "Don't poke your nose into this business, if you don't wish to have problems."
"Some information has leaked out in the end, though. On the basis of my own analysis I can speculate who was an accomplice in the crime and who was involved in concealing evidence. In my opinion, there were two men involved—the current deputy chief of the Ukrainian presidential staff Valery Kondratyuk and chief of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry's intelligence directorate, Vasily Burba."
A passenger liner Boeing-777 of the Malaysia Airlines (Flight MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur) disappeared from the radar screens over the east of Ukraine's Donetsk Region on July 17, 2014. Its crash killed all 298 passengers and crew on board—citizens of ten countries. Although hostilities had been underway on the ground for quite some time by then Kiev failed to close the Donbass airspace to international passenger flights. Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, the Netherlands and Ukraine created a Joint Investigation Team. On May 24 last year it published an interim report to claim that the missile launcher which had fired the missile that downed the plane might have been brought from Russia's 53rd air defense missile brigade.
Russia dismissed the JIT charges. The Defense Ministry said that not a single air defense system of the Russian armed forces had ever crossed the Russian-Ukrainian border. Full story: tass.com
Comment: Don't be surprised. Western governments and media only lie. Never do they tell the truth. Remember: Russiagate. Weapons of mass destruction. Iranian nukes. Assad's use of chemical weapons. Gulf of Tonkin. 9/11. Russian invasion of Ukraine. JFK assassination. MLK assassination. Bobby Kennedy assassination. Skripal poisoning. Maduro starving his own people. An endless list of lies. The entirety of the West is nothing but a lie factory . . . John 8:44 says so.
The 'banah' of Eve
By Malcolm Bowden © 2010 all rights reserved
Genesis 2:21-23, "The Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall tha man, and he slept: then He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh at that place; and from the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, (Heb. 'banah') rebuilt an extension or continuation into a woman, and brought her to the man. And Adam 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".
By revelation we understand woman is a by-product taken from and made into a continuation of the first Adam (Luke 3:38) as Christ's Church was taken from His side in the form of the Holy Spirit and made into a continuation of the last Adam. Since the first Adam was God's first Son, His Spoken Word manifest in flesh, he could nor sin or disbelieve the Word. Woman was made over a century after God finished creation, she is not His Word made flesh but made so that she can deceive and be deceived. Hereon I will quote Brother Malcolm Bowden's "True Science Agrees with the Bible." Our author does not have these revelations however he has assembled some intellectually interesting scientific discoveries someone would appreciate.
In the late 1970's I met Dr. Wilder-Smith who gave me a fascinating account of how God could have easily created Eve from Adam's rib. He had briefly referred to it in his book "Basis for a New Biology" (Teleos) and there was a more detailed account in "The Creation of Eve," by R. Koontz, (CRSQ).
Why did God use a rib?
In the body, the numerous cells have a wide range of functions, and are specially designed for their role. For example, nerve cells have to carry information over long distances and interact with many other nerves. They therefore develop a very long thin structure with many branches that connect through synapses with other nerves. Similarly, blood cells not only lose their nucleus but are shaped to give a large surface area to allow the oxygen to enter and be released quickly. Glandular tissue has several sets of chromosomes due to repeated chromosome reproduction. Many other examples could be given as all cells are highly specialised in their design for their particular function.
Every cell has the same information in its DNA, but in those that have a very specialised function, much of this information is "switched off" and not used, allowing the others still active to control the development of the cell. Of all the many cells in the body, the bone marrow cells in the ribs are amongst the most undifferentiated. This means that God would have to do less work in "switching on" unused sections of the DNA chromosomal chains than for a specialised one.
There are 46 chromosomes in the human cell arranged in 22 pairs. Both members of each pair are the same shape except the sex cells. In these, the male has an X and a Y chromosome whilst the female has two X chromosomes. If the male Y chromosome is suppressed, then the X has only to be duplicated and we then have two X chromosomes—the identical female equivalent of Adam.
Most readers will be familiar with the recent development of "cloning" a variety of plant or animal. For example, they have cloned rubber plants so that they all grow to an identical height, position of branches and leaves, quality and quantity of rubber, etc. With identical trees, the tapping of the rubber can be carried out by machines.
The method is to remove the nucleus of a cell that has been fertilised and replace it with another nucleus of the desired type. This can be repeated in other cells using the nuclei from a stock set of cells from one plant or animal. The resulting offspring will all be identical in the same way as identical twins and triplets, etc. Without being disrespectful, it could be said that, in a not dissimilar fashion, Eve was a perfect reproduction, or "clone," of Adam, but the female "version" of him!
One question occasionally asked is why a man has nipples when he has no use for them. The answer is that forming of the sexual organs is identical in both sexes for a long period of the development of the human foetus, and it is only in the late stages that they differentiate into the very specific organs of the two sexes. By that time the nipples have appeared in the male foetus but are not developed further.
By taking a part of Adam and using it to form Eve, Adam was presented with a wife who was a perfect match for him. This would give added significance to Adam's joyous exclamation: "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. She shall be called Woman because she was taken out of Man" (Genesis 2:23).
In this exultation, he used a play on the words for man ('ish) and woman ('isha) that indicates their oneness. The play on words may have been by Moses—unless Adam spoke Hebrew! However, many languages have similar-sounding names for man and WO-man.
In this creation of Adam first and the forming of Eve from part of him, we see the order of responsibility that God had set out for the family and the organising of society. The strongly patriarchal hierarchy in the society of the Old Testament is but a continuation of this God-ordained order. We also see it continued in the New Testament. Here, it is not so much with modifications but more corrections from the excesses of traditions allowed by the Old Testament religious leaders. Such a patriarchal society is anathema to today's "politically correct" agitators, who seek to not just equalise but reverse this order to achieve a social organisation that completely contradicts God's provision.
There is strong pressure to reverse these roles to correct the "imbalance" that is claimed to exist in today's society. Boys are trained to take lessons in cooking whilst girls are taught handiwork, carpentry, etc. All this is against the natural inclinations of the vast majority of children and as it is against the instincts implanted in them by God, such efforts must eventually fail.
This subject is very clearly set out in an interesting article (Mechanisms for Gender Role Stasis, 3rd ICC, by C. Diane Powell).
She gives the results of research by a number of secular workers, some of whom adopt the feminist approach but have to admit their puzzlement with what they discovered. We summarise some of the points she reports.
(i) Boys have a natural tendency towards aggressiveness, visual-spacial and mathematical abilities and are better at the manipulation of objects. They prefer activities like riding and climbing and are "chauvinistic" in seeking to establish their masculine identities. Males have a better organisational ability, a greater tendency towards competition and dominance and to seek authority, status and a position of recognised achievement. This enables them to obtain high positions, even in countries which have a policy of "equality" such as Russia, China and Israel.
(ii) Girls are better at auditory skills, and have a greater sensitivity to taste, smell, temperature, touch, social stimuli, etc. and tend to fantasise. Women are unhappy with competition and the adversarial approach to solving problems. They are reluctant to assume leadership which is why the feminist movement is often troubled by positions of authority due to "women's reluctance to vest power in the hands of women." Career women tended to deal with social, family and personal issues in their profession.
(iii) "Men who fail will give the excuse, 'Success is not worth the effort,' while for women it appears to be more of a 'self-evident truth'."
(iv) The main role that men are suited for is as provider/protector to their family unit, whilst for the female it is as the "caretaker." The women in the Israeli "kibbutzim" gradually reverted to their natural roles even though pay was not an issue and the leaders were intent on eliminating gender differences. Equality of pay in Australia resulted in lower employment of women due to employers finding that men were more dedicated to their careers and achieving success. The most significant contribution to criminality is the absence of a father.
All this evidence, collected at considerable cost to the public purse, only presents truths that are so very obvious to all sensible people, particularly if they are parents. The fundamentally different sexual characteristics of children are so deep-seated that it requires considerable effort and dedication to make any modest change. The unrelenting propaganda from powerful pressure groups does have some effect, but left alone, most children will revert to their natural instincts and become the moderately competent parents of the next generation. Some, however, will have been so badly affected that when they become parents, it will result in yet another generation who will be inadequate parents in their turn.
Regarding this pressure to "equalise" (!) the sexes, a letter in the Daily Telegraph (14.1.97) told of a professional career women who was:
determined that her young daughter should not be gender-prejudiced [what a delightful word!] by buying her dolls and bought her cars and lorries instead. One day she discovered the girl wrapping them up in pieces of cloth and chatting fondly to them while tucking them up in her cot.
There are many successful women who are dedicated to a career, and there are obvious overlaps where some men are less ambitious than some women. This does not alter the fact that generally the natural instincts that are present in the vast majority of men and women around the world are as set out above.
We will not go any further into what might be for some a most contentious subject, but simply say that the reason for this attack upon the family and distortion of the "gender roles" is fundamentally an attack upon yet one more of God's many directives that He has provided for the benefit of mankind.
In consequence of Eve's terrible sin woman lost her co-equality with man, and God determined, "I will greatly multiply your pain in childbirth; in pain you shall bring forth children; yet your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you" (Genesis 3:16; I Timothy 2:15; I Corinthians 1:3-16; 14:34; Ephesians 5:24).
No Christian would want to see women "chained to the kitchen sink" but would want to see them take their rightful role in society. Christianity has placed women on a higher level of social standing than any other tradition—even those nations that have aimed at "equality." Who has not seen pictures of Russian women shovelling concrete on a freezing building-site and not felt that they were demeaned and little different from being slaves of an inhuman system?
In contrast, this writer has always had a very high regard for the Dutch people, and it is a fact that they have a higher percentage of evangelical Christians than most other nations. Not unconnected with this, a far higher proportion of their women are happy to be "homemakers" (Titus 2:5).
Only when both men and women undertake their God-given role will the majority of them have that deep sense of fulfilment that is God-ordained. What the relationship should be between a man and woman, particularly within a family.
In modern ears this will sound patronising, but it simply encapsulates the God-ordained relationship that is emphasised throughout the whole Bible. What woman does not look for some degree of protection from the rigours of the world? What man does not want to fulfil his role of sharing his life with a loving partner and providing for the whole family?
YOU are God's Building
Like the first Adam the Last Adam is male and female in Himself, reconciling His wife to the Word for her day in the invisible marriage union of faith in "the present Truth." The first Adam's wife was taken from His side in the form of a rib as he slept and the Last Adam's Bride was taken from His side in the form of the Holy Spirit as He slept on Calvary. Like Adam's rib, we were in Christ as Attributes of the Logos and when He died for our sins we were crucified in Him; we paid the supreme penalty in Christ on Calvary and cannot come under condemnation as He was raised for our justification and there can be no double jeopardy (Exodus 21:23; II Corinthians 5:13-21; Romans 8:1, 31-35; 4:25; Revelation 13:8).
Our natural birth placed us into the family of the first Adam as our Spiritual birth placed us in the family of the last Adam. One cannot join either Family, the life must pass through the blood to engender a live birth in the true pedigree. The natural types the Spiritual. If we take for example a girl child: at perhaps two years after the age of puberty an ovum will be released and move into the fallopian tube where it remains for about 24 hours. If the ovum is not fertilized during that time, it disintegrates and menstruation begins two weeks later.
This process will repeat for ever so long without producing a child until this virgin marries Mr. Right, because only a man can beget life. The procedure is the same in the Spiritual as we learn from the parable of Matthew 25; the sleeping virgins were each justified and sanctified; all loved the Lord and were aged from perhaps nine to ninety. These virgins never missed a service; despite this even the wise could not come to the birth until the Life of Mr. Right was passed through His mystic Body by the Message of Revelation 10:7. And the only way an elect could be born-again in any of the nine Christian dispensations was by receiving "the present Truth" passed through Christ's Body; that Life will bear His Image after His likeness.
This diagram depicts New Jerusalem as the "lively stones [of] we who are alive and remain caught up together with the glorified dead in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the Air" (Revelation 20:2). In each of the nine Christian dispensations the Spirit of the Lord opposed His adversary by displaying the token of a virtue of Jesus Christ in the wise virgin. "The foundation of the apostles and prophets in the apostolic saints: faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, or brotherly kindness" in serial Church Ages of PART-W_O_R_D (II Peter 1-8) culminating with "love—Jesus Christ Himself—the fullness of the Word and Chief Corner or Capstone" (Ephesians 2:20). Here we see God's second Bible the great Pyramid transformed from lifeless stone to glorified flesh in Christ and His Bride of all Ages. Please read Isaiah 19:19-25 and you will note the remnant of blood Israelites returning from Egypt and Assyria for redemption in the Land of their Covenant acknowledge the prophetic significance of this monument or pillar on the border between Upper and Lower Egypt (Isaiah 8:14; Daniel 2:31-45; Zechariah 4;7; Matthew 21:42-44; I Peter 2:4-8).
Isaiah 59:14-19, "When God saw that judgment is turned away backward, and justice stands far away; for truth is fallen in the street and equity cannot enter. Yes, truth fails; and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey [as when corrupt non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews held our Church hostage over four years before the Federal Court under laws they wrote until their vexatious litigation was dismissed]; it displeased the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel that there was no justice. And He saw that there was no man, and was astonished that there was no one to intercede; then His own arm brought salvation to Him, and His righteousness upheld Him. For He put on vengeance as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on His head; and He put on garments of vengeance for clothing, and dressed Himself with zeal as a cloak. According to their deeds He will repay, fury to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; He will make recompense to those Gentile impostors. So they will fear the Name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him".
This is confirmed by history and in the preceding image. Romans 8:16-18, "The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God: and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ; if indeed we suffer with Him in order that we may also be glorified with Him. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us".
"Unless we suffer with Him we cannot reign with Him. You have to suffer to reign. The reason for this is that character is simply never made without suffering. Character is a VICTORY, not a gift. A man without character cannot reign because power apart from character is Satanic. But power with character is fit to rule. And since He wants us to share even His throne on the same basis that He overcame and is set down in His Father's throne, then we have to overcome to sit with Him. And the little temporary suffering we go through now is not worthy to be compared to the tremendous glory that will be revealed in us when He comes. Oh, what treasures are laid up for those who are willing to enter into His kingdom through much tribulation" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 117:1).
At the close of this holy convocation the Word will be made flesh and glorified, the proof of the resurrection sign after justification, sanctification and the baptism of the Holy Ghost have been planted, organizations have died, and Christ has again centred Himself like that cap of the pyramid. Justification; sanctification; baptism of the Holy Ghost; then coming of the Capstone in 1963. His end-time Bride coming into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God to match the ministry Christ had when He went away, so we will be caught up with Him.
As illustrated by the Menorah, there was a unique measure of Word predestinated to each dispensation of grace, and a portion of Spirit predestinated to quicken that Word to Life (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7). But unless and until the virgin comes under that atmosphere she will remain barren despite her dedication and knowledge of Scripture.
Christ in the True Church is the continuation [(Heb.) 'banah'] of the Book of Acts. The Book of Revelation exposes Satan, revealing his works, the attempted destruction of God's people and the discrediting of God's Word, right down to the time he is cast into the lake of fire. He knows that with the TRUE REVELATION of the TRUE CHURCH and what She is, what she stands for the people of God CAN DO THE GREATER WORKS, and be an invincible army.
Satan hates revelation. But we love it. It is the revelation of Jesus Christ that will give us the AUTHORITY over the Devil so we can see why all those who would add to or take from it would be cursed.
The end-time Bride will be RESTORED to unity in the "common faith" (Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:51-52). If we are really going to 'fly away' we'd better do our pre-flight check up. The countdown began in 1963 when the Seven Seals were revealed: frequent flyer points do not apply.
Acts 2 showed the Gospel living in men, but when Peter explained Moses, the Psalms and the Prophets as Jesus rehearsed them on the Emmaus Road, proving to Israel "God has made that same Jesus whom you have crucified both Lord and Christ" NONE of the Israelites or their elders received the faith. With all of his head knowledge Paul had God down pat and was murdering the Christians to defend His dogma, but when God revealed the Good News he separated himself from the learned elders of Zion to be alone with God three years, repent and allow Him to replace scholarship with faith.
The gifts of the Spirit will pass away (I Corinthians 13:1, 9-13) but faith abides forever (I Peter 1:21-25). One may accept or decline God's marriage proposal: once accepted one is justified by grace through faith, betrothed and bound by mutual obligation. One who breaks the engagement for another is an adulteress (Matthew 1:18-20). Sanctification is separating oneself from the world and the things of the world to the Word. In the natural it is learning how to please and serve one's Husband yet the espoused remains a virgin until the solemn blessing witnessed by family and friends.
Despite what mainstream news, men pleasing politicians and NWO-hopeful denominational ministers enunciate there is but one "common faith"—a clear understanding of the unchanging "mind of the Lord" (Titus 1:4; I Corinthians 2:16). God is not double minded: His thoughts are eternal they are real and will come to pass in their designated decreed season and time. There cannot be a Jewish faith, Roman Catholic, Baptist, Pentecostal, Buddhist or Muslim faith: these manmade traditions contain an element of truth married with human reasoning or guesswork, and no sure foundation on which to build the House of God (Matthew 15:6; I Corinthians 3:9-16). We must be single minded by faith whereby our "yes" is certain, and our "no" sure.
In John 8:59 – 9:1 Jesus departed from the temple as the Jews took up stones to stone Him, and He spotted a man who had been born blind, a type of Israel then and the churches today—even some in the circle of this Message who come from different parts and gather with a confusion of doctrines. Brother Branham recounted an occasion during the Pentecostal revival when two boys who had been born blind received their sight. But it was a hard struggle because there was such a confusion amongst the churches, and certain visiting ministers came with the objective of splitting churches in order to start their own church whereas he was doing his best to bring the people together in the unity of the faith.
Now it was not by chance that Jesus spoke to the blind man: he was a predestinated seed chosen (John 15:16) from the foundation of the world so that the works of God should be manifest in him to glorify the Lord. And it was not by chance that the elect of God discover our Church Website, or "ask YOU to give an account for the hope that is in you" (I Peter 3:15). Jesus said, "As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world." When He had thus spoken, He spat on the ground and made clay of the spittle, and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, [a familiar folk remedy]. And told him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam," a reservoir at the end of the tunnel within the city: Siloam means Sent or apostle. He went his way in passive obedience, [neither having expressed faith nor asked for healing] and washed, and came seeing".
Obedience is better than sacrifice for unbelief. The brain of one born blind lacks the ability to properly process visual information so the initial response to such a healing tends to be confusion. It can take a very long time for such a person to function normally. Not only were the man's eyes healed, but like the two boys who received their sight in Brother Branham's meeting, God also gave him the mental ability to understand what he is seeing".
One of our subscribers introduced me to the video of an Israeli believer in Christ who employed this Scripture to show that Jesus is God our Creator manifest in virgin-born flesh (Colossians 1:15-20). God is the Potter who [without spittle] "formed (Heb.) 'yatsar' man from the dust of the ground [on the seventh day], and breathed into his nostrils the breath of lives, and man became a living soul" (Genesis 2:7).
Isaiah 64:8 – 65:25 called the Lord "our Potter, and we the work of His hand." He prophesied the blessing of Abraham would pass to Christ's Gentile Bride of whom God will build New Jerusalem, His Holy City and eternal dwelling "John foresaw coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a Bride adorned for her Husband" (Revelation 20:2). Isaiah 66 speaks of the rebirth of Israel as a nation in one day, all 144,000 of them, when they "anoint the Most Holy Place," New Jerusalem—their King Jesus Messiah and His Wife, the Church—their Queen (Daniel 9:24f).
Recognize WHO you are, my Brother and Sister, this is more real than the much-married actress Megan Markel marrying a prince. By grace through faith YOU are "Mrs. Potter" Israel's Queen, so be lovely for you are His beloved and what you say He will do (John 15:7).
Matthew 7:7-8, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for everyone who asks receives; and he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks it shall be opened." Does your wife have a hernia? Without surgery the Lord will heal her. Believe with thanks awaiting that manifestation. Have savages attacked you with pangas? The Lord will heal your wounds. Your Husband is your Healer, your Protector and your Provider Who knows your needs before you call. He has not forgotten; He has been anticipating your effectual fervent prayer from the foundation of the world. Are you seeking Companion, a wife? or a husband? You'll have one in the next life, but He understands you need one now. Ask and you shall receive. Do you require employment? It is available if you seek and knock on the right door. Examinations on the horizon? Study diligently and pray.
The other day I read of a little girl who wore braces strapped around her waist to support her legs so that she could walk. She would be pushed into the prayer line and Brother Branham would lay hands laid on her, then someone would send her through again. She kept coming through. And while she passed through again, she looked up, kind of one of those little bitty grins, you know, and that tooth out. And Something just said, "Stop the child."
Brother Branham could see that she didn't have faith to be healed at that time. From the start of his ministry God promised, "If you get the people to believe you, then be sincere when you pray, no demon can hold over there, then." He has to know the Master. But here they are, down here; and here's where they ought to be, up here. Well, when the Lord tells them of their diseases and declares the secrets of their heart, faith rises up to the place where He can get them to believe him. And when He is able lift the patient up to where their faith comes to meet the requirement of God's promise, that gives the Prophet a perfect faith. "I've never seen it fail. And it never will fail. It can't fail." [Read that again].
Brother Branham said, "Honey, you stand right behind me." And she stood back there, just holding on to my coat tail. I said, "You pray, honey." And she'd have her little head down, praying. And she was holding my coat, and I just kept on praying. I'd forgot about the child. I turned around again; I said, "Honey, keep praying," like that. And after a while, I begin to feel that faith begin to set in, like a heartbeat, pump, pump, pump. And when it begin to go like that, I turned around to her. I said, "Now, sweetheart," and I laid my hands upon her and asked the Lord Jesus.
I said to the mother, "Now, take the braces off of her."
She said, "But, Brother Branham, I tell you, she's . . ."
I said, "Uh-huh, don't you doubt that, lady. You do what you're told to do." She walked over there and took the braces off the child.
Here she come back down and holding that great big braces, through those people like that, perfectly normal, just as normal as she could be, those little legs (#50-0100, Diseases and Afflictions).
Do you need the Lord to strengthen, straighten and restore your legs? Have confidence, be positive and patient in expectation, knowing "that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose . . . we are more than conquerors . . . nothing shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is Christ Jesus, our Lord, Brother, King, and spiritual Husband".
Romans 9:20-33, "Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why have you made me thus? Does the potter not have authority over the clay, to make from the same lump one vessel for honour, and another for dishonour? What if God, willing to demonstrate His wrath, and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: and did so in order that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He prepared beforehand for glory, even YOU, [my Brother and Sister] whom He has called, not only from the Judahites but also from among the Gentiles"?
"As He says also in Hosea 2:23, "I will call those who were not My people, 'My people,' and her who was not beloved, 'beloved.' And it shall be, that in the place where it was said to them, 'You are not My people,' there [in New Jerusalem] they shall be called 'the Children of the living God'."
"Isaiah also cried out concerning Israel, 'Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, it is only a remnant [144,000] that will be saved: for He will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work [one week of seven prophetic years (Daniel 9:27)] will the Lord make upon the earth (Matthew 24:21-22). And as Isaiah 1:9 foretold, 'Except the Lord of Hosts had left us a posterity, we would have become as Sodom, and resembled Gomorrha'."
"What shall we say then? That Gentiles who did not follow righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is by faith; but Israel, pursuing the Law of righteousness, did not attain to that Law. Why? Because they sought it not by faith, but as though it were by works. They stumbled over that Stumblingstone, just as it is written, Behold, I lay in Zion a Stumblingstone and Rock of offence, and he who believes in Him will not be disappointed".
That Stumblingstone is Jesus Christ, the Capstone or Chief Corner stone of His Body, the Church, over which the world church system is stumbling, together with Jewry (so-called).
In John 9:4-5 Jesus said, "We must work the works of Him Who sent Me, while it is day. The night is coming, when no one can work." The evening time Light of Zechariah 14:7 and Matthew 24:27 opened our blinded eyes, "cleansed with the washing of water by the Word and every one of us was baptized in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins." Darkness will suddenly overtake that Light at the close of the Christian dispensation when there will be "a great earthquake; and the sun will become black as sackcloth of goat's hair, and the full moon will become as blood [one Nisan 14 very soon]" (Revelation 6:12).
"While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world." Darkness cannot overcome Light and in this holy convocation the Light of His parousia shines like a beacon through His Bride. Matthew 5:14-16, "YOU are the Light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel basket, but on a candlestick; and it gives light to all that are in the House. Let your Light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven".
We are the "lively stones" Christ is building into the Capstone of the City, New Jerusalem that will one day rest upon that fifteen hundred mile high hill, Mount Zion, which will begin to press up causing the earthquake that will divide the Mount of Olives. Display the Light of the Token of the Life of Christ among men who suppose they are "in the House" when in fact they are building denominations walls beyond God's Plan into the territory of Satan our Adversary, having neglected to turn the corner at the juncture of each Church Age.
God is building a House, not a wall, and YOU are God's Building. nl1065.htm
