Bible Believers' Newsletter 1252
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are always pleased to see you welcome your fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
Our main article commences with the original sin whereby Eve satiated herself body mind and soul with satanic knowledge of the forbidden tree instead of Christ, the Tree of Life. In taking Eve back to himself Adam forfeited our dominion to Satan. The couple were separated from the theophany of Christ, the Tree of Life and banished from the Garden until He paid sin's price on Calvary, bringing us the remission of sins, redemption and reconciliation. In another issue we will investigate the Seraphim and Cherubim.
As for you and I, we have yet another year in this sin-cursed earth before Satan is cast down, and the prognosis for "peace on earth and good will among men" is negative in the extreme, so be careful what you feed body, soul and spirit because the eugenicists would have you dead. Please read the Full story in this week's news unfolding prophecy.
Errata: In the Editorial of Newsletter 1251 Matthew 25:35-36 should be Matthew 23:35-36.
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.
Berlin unable to attend NATO's Demands
April 13, 2023 — Despite its bellicose and anti-Russian mentality, the German government seems unable to continue contributing to NATO's war plans . . . incapable to meet the military requirements imposed by the Atlantic alliance . . . funding given to the German armed forces is insufficient to meet the current defense needs of the Western world . . . questions about Berlin's role in the current US proxy war against Russia . . . According to the officials, German combat readiness currently required by NATO would be "limited".
As evidence of this scenario, it is also mentioned that one of the tank divisions that Berlin had promised to place at the service of the alliance would be facing a shortage of 21% in its units. Previously, the German government's expectation was to place the entire division at the service of NATO by 2025, but it is already considered virtually impossible for this objective to be achieved within this period. According to the Bild's sources, even if units from other divisions of the German armed forces start to be allocated in the battalion, it will be hard to overcome the current deficit. Similar problems are seen in other sectors of the Army, showing an actual condition of military weakness in the country . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: In Matthew 24:9 Jesus prophesied "the time of Jacob's trouble under the Fifth Seal." In Revelation 17:10-18 He foretold the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trump and Seventh Vial will initiate the Day of the Lord and judgment. Under ecclesiastical power NATO will abandon the USA and Rome and ally with Russia.
On April 7, leaked Pentagon documents containing highly classified information, leading to revelations about the state of war in Ukraine and the extent of US intelligence on Russia, illegal CIA spying on some of the US' most loyal allies, Ukraine, Israel, and South Korea began circulating widely (peoplesdispatch.org).
Putin's Nuclear Red Line
April 7, 2023 — "Russia will deploy its tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus at the request of Minsk," President Putin announces. "In fact," he clarifies, "we are doing everything the United States has been doing for decades.
Moscow points out that the US has placed its tactical nuclear weapons in Europe, in six NATO countries—Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Turkey, and Greece (Greece does not currently have them, but there is a depot ready to receive them). The B61 nuclear bombs, which in Italy are deployed at the Aviano and Ghedi bases, are now being replaced by the new B61-12s, which the US Air Force is already transporting to Europe. They have features that make them much more lethal than their predecessors: each bomb has 4 power options depending on the target to be hit, is directed on the target by a satellite guidance system, and can penetrate the ground to destroy enemy command center bunkers. The US will probably also deploy B61-12s in Poland and other NATO countries even closer to Russia.
Three NATO nuclear powers—US, Britain, France—and four US nuclear-armed NATO countries—Italy, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands—participate in Operation Baltic Air Policing in the airspace of Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Poland, with aircraft that can carry tactical nuclear weapons.
In addition to these, B-52H strategic bombers of the US Air Force carry out nuclear warfare training missions in the Baltic region and other European areas adjacent to Russian territory. The European Allies provide 19 airfields for such missions. The United States, having torn up the INF Treaty, also prepares intermediate-range nuclear missiles for deployment in Europe. Adding to this offensive deployment are the bases and ships of the Aegis "missile defense" system deployed by the US in Europe. Both the ships and the Aegis ground installations are equipped with Lockheed Martin's Mk 41 vertical launchers that—as documented by the same manufacturer—can launch not only interceptor missiles but also cruise missiles armed with nuclear warheads. After the US and NATO rejected all Russian proposals to stop this increasingly dangerous nuclear escalation, Russia is responding with deeds, deploying nuclear bombs and intermediate-range missiles ready to be armed with nuclear warheads in Belarus, in close proximity to US-NATO bases in Europe.

Efforts to reduce Israeli Influence in Africa Continues
April 13, 2023 — As the Israeli government intensifies its efforts to win influence on the African continent and other geopolitical regions, several governments have responded by heightening their solidarity with the Palestinian people. In South Africa, the National Assembly based in Cape Town voted in early March to further downgrade the diplomatic presence of Israel inside the country.
Since 2019 there has been no South African ambassador credentialed to its embassy in Tel Aviv. This measure stems directly from the failure of the Israeli government to negotiate a settlement to end the occupation of Palestine. In fact, repressive policies against the Palestinians have worsened over the decades with massive bombing campaigns by the Israeli Air Force in Gaza killing thousands and displacing many more from their homes and refugee camps. Every year more Palestinian communities are being taken over by the Israelis through the building of settlements for Jewish households . . . the African National Congress (ANC), has maintained fraternal relations with the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) while endorsing the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns domestically and internationally which are geared towards the complete isolation of the racist apartheid regime in Tel Aviv . . .

Atomic Bomb – Manhattan Project
By Larry Romanoff © 2023 all rights reserved
April 9, 2023 — The "Manhattan Project," the American project to develop and drop the first atomic bombs, was almost entirely a Jewish project, from (the Jew) Einstein's first letter of encouragement to (the Jew) Roosevelt of the urgency to develop such weapons, to William Laurence sitting in the co-pilot's seat during the bombing of Nagasaki. Many observers have noted that photographs of the Manhattan Project Team look like yeshiva photos, yearbook photographs of a Jewish high school reunion, and in fact the atomic bomb was widely known in scientific circles in the US as "The Jewish Hell-Bomb." William L. Laurence was a Lithuanian Jew who changed his name to Laurence, and who worked for (the Jew) Bernard Baruch, having been selected "by the heads of the atomic bomb project as sole writer and public relations officer." As Baruch's representative, he was one of the few civilians permitted to watch the bomb test explosions, and the only civilian on the aircraft that dropped the atomic bombs on Japan.
"Another luminary in this cast was Dr. James B. Conant, then president of Harvard University, who had spent years developing deadly poison gases which would kill more people more effectively, and who had been working feverishly on the development of an anthrax bomb for (Jewish) UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill, a bomb "which would have killed every living thing in Germany." Fortunately, Germany surrendered before Conant could complete his task." Yet another director whose name has been eliminated from the cast is George L. Harrison, a Jew who was then president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and who strongly advised President Truman to drop the bombs on Japan. (Jew) J. Robert Oppenheimer was selected by Baruch as the scientific director of the Manhattan Project, and apparently made an excellent choice. At the first successful detonation of an atomic bomb on July 16, 1945, "Oppenheimer was beside himself at the spectacle. He shrieked, "I am become Death, the Destroyer of worlds." Indeed, this seemed to be the ultimate goal of the Manhattan Project, to destroy the world. Oppenheimer's exultation came from his realization that now his people (the Jews) had attained the ultimate power, through which they could implement their five-thousand-year desire to rule the entire world" . . . Full story: bluemoonofshanghai.com
Comment: On July 4, 1934 a Jewish man named Leo Szilard filed a patent application for the atomic bomb in England. Since then, every single type of nuclear weapon device known to man without exception has been invented by Jews . . . (The New Sturmer).
And that's all right, to know how to split an atom, I wish they'd a-never found it out . . . It had to happen, to burst these big holes in the earth, to let that lava come forth and rejuvenate this world again, to make a new earth; where the righteous will walk out upon the dust of the wicked, where sin will be forgotten . . . those who are still on the Tree of Life, shall come to a new heavens and a new earth, where there is no sickness or death. Light! Light, Lord, send us Light" (63-1229M, There is a Man here that can Turn on the Light, par. 96).
Davos WEF is Promoting Impossible Zero Carbon Green Agenda
April 10, 2021 — Why are major governments, corporations, think tanks and the Davos WEF all promoting a Zero Carbon global agenda to eliminate use of oil, gas, coal? . . . the turn to solar and wind-based electricity is impossible. It is impossible because of the demand for raw materials from copper to cobalt to lithium to concrete and steel exceeding global supply. It is impossible because of the staggering trillions in cost of battery backup for a "reliable" 100% renewable electric grid. It is also impossible without causing the collapse of our present standard of living and a breakdown of our food supply that will mean mass death from starvation and disease. All this for a scientific fraud called man-made global warming?
Even paling the brazen corruption surrounding the recent vaccine push by Big Pharma and major government officials globally is the mindless push by especially EU and USA governments to advance a Green Agenda whose costs vs. benefits have rarely been openly examined . . . a sinister agenda to destroy industrial economies and reduce the global population by billions of human beings. We can examine the stated goal of Zero Carbon globally by 2050, the UN Agenda 2030, allegedly to prevent what Al Gore and others claim will be a tipping into irreversible sea level rise, "boiling oceans," iceberg meltdowns, global catastrophe and worse. In one of his first acts in office, in 2021 Joe Biden issued a proclamation that the USA economy shall become Zero Net Carbon by 2050 in transportation, electricity and manufacturing. The European Union, under the notoriously corrupt Ursula von der Leyen, has announced similar targets in its Fit for 55 and countless other Green Agenda programs.
Farming and all aspects of modern agriculture are being targeted with fake allegations of greenhouse gas damage to climate. Oil, natural gas, coal and even CO2-free nuclear energy are being phased out. We are being pushed for the first time in modern history from a more energy-efficient economy into a dramatically less energy-efficient one. No one in Washington, Berlin or Brussels talks about the true required natural resources for this fraud, let alone the cost. Clean Green Energy? Full story: globalresearch.ca
Biden to spend $5 Billion on New Coronavirus Vaccine Initiative Supported by Gates, Fauci and Republican Lawmakers
April 12, 2023 — The US government will spend $5 billion on a program to accelerate the development of new coronavirus vaccines and therapeutics, White House officials announced this week in an interview with The Washington Post. Dubbed "Project NextGen," the new initiative will serve as the successor to the Trump administration's "Operation Warp Speed," launched in March 2020 to expedite the development of COVID-19 vaccines . . . with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation—will encourage public-private partnerships.

India-Malaysia to Trade in Rupees bypassing US Dollar
April 7, 2023 — There is a worldwide movement to stop using what is considered a toxic currency, the US dollar. The concept of de-dollarization is accelerating, now India, the "I" in the BRICS has also made significant moves to bypass US dollars . . . "the mechanism will allow the Indian and Malaysian traders to invoice the trade in Indian Rupee and therefore achieve better pricing for goods and services traded . . . The acceleration of de-dollarization is taking place on every continent, India is just one country on board that seeks to enhance its growing economy by using their own currency, the Indian Rupee (INR) . . . many countries see this as an opportunity to ditch the US dollar before Washington can impose some sort of sanctions on their respective economies especially if they were to decide on doing business with Russia, China, or Iran. Besides the fact that when the US receives its imports, they export its dollars in exchange thus resulting in inflationary pressures for those on the receiving end, Washington has weaponized their world reserve currency status to impose their will on sovereign countries for a long time, just ask those who suffered thru sanctions or embargoes such as Iran, Russia, China, Cuba, and others who has defied Washington.
The US dollar has been used as a weapon against those who are not obedient, but times are changing for the US establishment and their ambitions to continue their hegemonic objectives, therefore undermining its currency can end its global dominance . . . but a serious question remains, what will Washington, its banker class, the Pentagon, and its Military-Industrial Complex do to stop or slow-down the global rush to de-dollarize their economies? Perhaps start another war with another global power who is leading the charge to abandon the US dollar? Maybe they will release another virus? One of these scenarios will take place in the foreseeable future because the globalists who are in charge in Washington and elsewhere will do anything to remain in power even if it means starting a new world war.

Feed from the Tree of Life
Genesis 3:16-24, "To the woman God said, I will greatly multiply your pain in childbirth. In pain you shall bring forth children; and your desire shall be for your husband, and he will rule over you. And to Adam He said, Because you hast listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree, of which I commanded you, saying, You shall not eat from it; cursed is the ground for your sake; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life; thorns and thistles shall it bring forth to you; and you shall eat the plants of the field; in the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground; for out of it you were taken: for dust you are, and to dust you shall return."
"And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living." (Adam was the father of Abel; however he was not the father of Cain who was vicariously begotten by the Devil-incarnate Serpent). "And the LORD God made coats of skins, and clothed them under the blood of lambs".
"And the LORD God said, Behold, the man (not the woman) has become like one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and partake also of the Tree of Life, and eat, and live forever—(as an eternal sinner)—therefore the LORD God sent him out from the Garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So He drove the man out; and at the east of the Garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way of the Tree of Life" (Exodus 25:18-22).
It is essential we see that man is made in the image of God, while woman is made in the image of man, and for man. Woman is not God's original creation but is a byproduct from man. For this reason she is to be under submission to man and to obey her own husband. When Adam obeyed the voice of his wife instead of the Voice of God he broke their relationship with God and abrogated his responsibility as Eve's ruler and guide (I Corinthians 11:1-16).
In forsaking his responsibility of headship over his wife, Adam forfeited his dominion over the world to Satan. Death fell upon the animal kingdom, and God cursed the ground so that henceforth Earth would not spontaneously yield its abundance but man would have to cultivate and farm against thorns and thistles for his sustenance.
The cherubim that guard paradise (Genesis 3:24) are introduced without description as well-known figures from older sources. The cherubim have four wings and four faces. The two seraphim of Isaiah 6 have six wings, and a human face. The cherubims over the Mercy Seat face one another having only a human face, and four, not six wings (Exodus 25:17-22; 37:6-9). I believe they represent Israel's two witnesses, Moses and Elijah (Exodus 29:7; 40:15; Zechariah 4:14; Matthew 24:31; Revelation 11:3-12).
The Seraphim described in Numbers 21:6 and Isaiah 6:2-7 are the highest order of angels—swift messengers, having six wings but otherwise human in form. Two wings were kept ready for instant flight in the service of God; two veiled his face as unworthy to look upon the holy God or pry into His secret counsels which they fulfilled (Exodus 3:6; Job 4:18; 15:15; I Kings 19:13), and two covered their feet and lower bodies. Their occupation was twofold—to celebrate the praises of God's holiness and power (Isaiah 6:3) and act as the medium of communication between heaven and earth (Isaiah 6:6). A winged human figure was not peculiar to the Hebrews, for among the sculptures found at Mourghaub, Persia, is the representation of a man with two pairs of wings springing from the shoulders and extending, one pair upwards, the other downwards, covering the head and the feet. They stand around the throne crying to onea nother, "Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God of hosts: the whole earth is full of His glory. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke" expressing God's holy indignation (Isaiah 4:5; Revelation 15:8). This majestic vision awoke in Isaiah the feeling of his sinfulness, and the fear that he shall be destroyed because as a sinful man he had seen the Lord. But one of the seraphim reconciled him with a glowing coal taken from the altar. Brother Branham explained seraphim know nothing of sin and stand beside God; the word seraphim means "burners." The seraphim receive the sacrifice, and cleanse the worshiper, then present him to God (62-1013, The Influence of Another, par. 91). The seraphim had one face (Numbers 21:6), the cherubim each had four faces and four wings (Ezekiel 1:5-12).
Cherubim signify those figures which Moses was commanded to make and place at each end of the mercy seat, or propitiatory, and covered the ark with expanded wings in the Most Holy Place of the tabernacle and temple (Exodus 25:18-19). The cherubim of the sanctuary, one at each end of the mercy seat, with the ark, were placed exactly between the north and south sides of the tabernacle. Here atonement was made and God rendered propitious by the high priest sprinkling the blood upon and before the mercy seat (Leviticus 16:14-15). Here the glory of God appeared, and here he met His high priest, and by him his people, and gave forth his oracles; hence the naos was called, the oracle. These cherubim had feet whereon they stood in one beaten work over or above the mercy seat. Those in Solomon's Temple were made of the wood of the olive tree overlaid with gold extending their wings to the whole breadth of the oracle, which was twenty cubits (I Kings 6:23-28; II Chronicles 3:10-13). They are called "cherubims of glory" because they had the glory of God or "Shekinah" resting between them. The "living creatures" of Revelation 4:8 and the cherubim of Ezekiel 1:5-12 had four wings (in the Temple only two) and four faces; that of a man, a lion, an ox, an eagle, and the feet of a calf—ideal representatives of redeemed creaturely life in which man is promised (Romans 8:17-24). Each face looked forward in contrast with the "three unclean spirits like frogs" which look backward to "the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet" whence they came (Revelation 16:13-16). At the east of Eden (after Adam's fall) God placed the Cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way to guard the way to the Tree of Life" (Genesis 3:24). As the flaming sword proclaimed God's just wrath against sin, so the Cherubim were the pledge of the restoration of man and the creaturely world closely allied with and subject to him (Psalm 8; Isaiah 11:6-9; Ezekiel 34:25; Hosea 2:18); the symbolical prophecy of the recovery of the Tree of Life; for they guard it against the time when man shall be fit to enjoy and never to lose it (Revelation 2:7; 22:14). With the flaming sword they were the forerunners of the sanctuary, where the Cherub on either side of the bright Shekinah cloud (from which, as on Sinai, the flame might at any moment dart) looked down on the blood-sprinkled mercy-seat of the ark, God's meeting place in reconciliation with sinners by the atoning blood; mercy and justice meeting together in man's redemption.
Hence it was before God's manifest presence between the cherubim at the east of Eden that the first sacrifices were offered (Genesis 3:21; 4:3-4; 4:16). Biblebelievers bring their sacrifice of praise before God expressing the propitiation He has already made. The cherubim are the pledge of our return to Eden. The appearance of the cherubim in the holiest place afterward suggest to man the same assurance of a common meeting ground with God at peace and in holiness. Finally, their appearance round God's throne as the redeemed crown that hope with joyful certainty (Ezekiel 1:10; 10:14; Revelation 4:6-9; 5:8, 13).
Brother Branham, said, "I believe the great cherubim at the east side of the gate and that Sword whirling back and forth, guarding that gate there that entered into Eden . . . Notice, Fire, the Holy Spirit Fire guarding the gate. And, today, that's what guards the gate. If you're scared of the Holy Ghost and Fire, you'll never get in. Fiery, the Sword of God, God is a consuming Fire, watching that Tree, guarding that Tree of Life. (53-0403, The Cruelty of Sin and the and the Penalty that it Cost to Rid Sin from our lives," par. 106-107) (53-0403, The Cruelty of Sin and the and the Penalty that it Cost to Rid Sin from our Lives," par. 106-107)
Now, the Tree of Life was Jesus Christ. "He that eats My flesh and drinks My Blood has Everlasting Life."
Cain built an altar just as Abel built an altar. In other words, each built a church, worshipping sincerely seeking to return to the Garden of Eden reconciled with the Tree of Life. Look at the light outside in the courts it was the firmament, sunlight that lit it up. Some days are cloudy; some days the sun doesn't shine at all. Some days it is dark. Now, that's in the outer court. The next court was the lamp of God where the justified stand, and it was lit by human hands. That's where we argue our denominations, where we argue our differences, split hairs: "And oh, I don't believe in divine healing. I don't believe them visions come from God. I don't believe this; I don't believe that." You're arguing, because you're living under artificial light . . . Yet you're eating manna. Sometimes the light goes out. Sometimes your lamp gets smoked up, but to he who desires to hide away—walk into the next place, there's no artificial light anywhere. But down in between the arch of the wings of these cherubim (on the Mercy Seat over the Ark of the Covenant in the Most Holy Place) was a supernatural Light hanging in there, which was a Halo of God that lit the whole room. And a man once entered into that Shekinah glory (Hallelujah!) that moves back there in the Presence of Almighty God. The dimness of this world, any artificial organizations, and all man-made creeds has passed away, and he's living in the Shekinah glory of Almighty God.
And a man who comes to the place where he comes into the church, out of the courts, out of just a lukewarm church member, and comes up to live a pretty good life in Christ, he's separated . . . But he's still living under lights that will get dim, and smoked up, and artificial light. But when he once walk behind in the holiest of holies, walks into the Presence of God, and the veil falls behind him, there's a pot of manna there he can eat every day, every hour of the week. There's where he's living in the Shekinah Glory, wherein the interlocked wings of the cherubim, the great Pillar of Fire, and the Shekinah rest (between the cherubim and above the Mercy Seat). Living under there; he can't be anything but a real genuine Christian all the time. Atmosphere: men and women who live in there are misunderstood. You see it? They become peculiar. They don't hear the things of the world, or if they do they don't pay attention to them. They just move on. God never put that in there for nothing.
But the man who entered in, and the veil fell behind him, he didn't depend on the sunlight, or the starlight, or the moonlight, or the seven golden candlesticks, he moved up to the altar and under the interlocked wings of the cherubim; the Shekinah Glory of the Lord was in there, a smooth Light, and he lived. It was there all the time, day and night. He walked in the Light of the living God. Amen.
Whether the clouds were overcast, whether the rain was a falling, whether thunder was a-rolling, whether an army was coming, it didn't make any difference to him, he was protected and he was in the Shekinah Glory, living in the Presence of God. Hallelujah.
Jesus was God's Prophet Tree. Why? He preached all the perfect Word of God, for He was the Word of God made manifest. He was the perfect Prophet Tree that preached the perfect Prophetic Word, that brought forth the perfect Prophet fruit by the perfect Word of God. Oh, brother, talk about a Tree! He was that Life Tree, and the Angel kept Eve and Adam away from that Tree with guarding cherubims. Now the same cherubim are trying to run them into It, 'cause there's been a way made for them. See? Now they're pulling back; oh, human beings. Uh! He preached all the Word, He didn't cut here or there (62-0422, The Restoration of the Bride Tree, par. 421).
As Jesus loosed each of the first four Seals of our spiritual redemption or new birth, the cherubim said, "Come" to the Tree of Life! In Isaiah 37:16, King Hezekiah prayed, addressing God as "enthroned above the cherubim" (referring to the Mercy Seat). "O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, Who is enthroned above the cherubim, You are the God, even You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: You have made heaven and earth." There are no cherubim with flaming swords to guard the Tree of Life now. God does not now depart from the midst of the Church as He departed from Eden. Oh, no, He will ever be in the midst of His Church until the close of the Gentile dispensation, and until that time He calls all to "Come"!
Did you notice, Jesus will come from the east? The light rises from the east. Civilization started in the east and traveled west until it revolves around and catches itself again. We are the western hemisphere. That's the eastern, the eastern is the oldest civilization. China's the oldest civilization known of by historians in the world today. East . . .
"Did you know Satan was co-equal with God one day? Sure was, all but a creator; he was everything, stood at the right hand of God, in the Heavens, the great leading cherubim" (Ezekiel 28).
"Notice the reason that Eve did this, she was not in the original creation. She is not in God's original creation; she is a by-product. Therefore, "at the beginning," as Jesus referred to it, she was not original creative being of God. She is a by-product of a man, when Jesus referred to "the beginning" (65-0221M, Marriage and Divorce, par. 104-105).
As the glory of God was last seen in the east, so shall "the glory of the God of Israel come from the way of the east" (Genesis 3:24; Ezekiel 11:23; 43:2). And the redeemed will be one with Christ in His execution of vengeance on the ungodly (Revelation 19:11-16) as will the cherubim (Revelation 15:7; Ezekiel 10:7). In Ezekiel 1 the four living creatures (Gk.) 'zoon' or cherubim stand in contrast with the four world monarchies termed "beasts" (Gk.) 'therion,' brutal beastly men (Daniel 7). The figure four answers to the four quarters of the world, implying worldwide extension, true universality, which the hidden hand has sought vainly to attain by ambitious selfishness as witnessed in the City of London and their banksters, Big Pharma, Big Oil, the UN, WHO, WEF, etc., The Mosaic cherubim were formed out of the same mass of pure gold as the mercy-seat, that is the deity or God's spoken Word (Exodus 25:19-20). The wings express rapidity in fulfilling God's will. The eyes all over express omniscience (Ezekiel 10:12).
The Ox represents domestic animals, of which he is chief; the Lion represents wild animals; the Eagle represents birds; Man, is the head of all; the ideal realized by the Son of man, combines all animal excellencies. The redeemed shall be the ruling powers, through whom, as now by the angels, God shall administer the government of the world, and proclaim His manifold wisdom (Matthew 19:28; I Corinthians 6:2; Ephesians 3:10; Revelation 3:21; Revelation 4:6-8). As the cherubim were of one piece with the ark, so the redeemed are one with Christ, and one with Him as their propitiation (2 Peter 1:4; Hebrews 2:11; Exodus 29:42-46; Exodus 25:22; I Corinthians 3:16-17; Galatians 2:20).
". . . To him that overcomes I will give to feed from the Tree of Life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God." What a thrilling thought is this. That Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden which could not be approached because of the fall of Adam is now given to the overcomer. The flaming sword of the guarding cherubim has been sheathed. But it was not sheathed ere its blade was bloody with the blood of the Lamb. Let us meditate upon this truth awhile as we consider why the Tree was denied to Adam and his descendants but now allowed again.
God's intention for His creation, man, is for us to express His Words. In Genesis, Adam was given the Word to live by. A life lived by the Word would be the Word expressed. That is true is it not? But did Adam live by that Word? No, because he was to live by EVERY Word, and he failed to take heed to every Word.
Then there arose Moses. What a great and mighty man he was. Yet he also failed to live by every Word, and that prophet, the type of the Great Prophet to come, failed in anger to obey the Word.
And there was also David, the great king of Israel, a man after God's own heart. He failed by adultery, when he was tempted.
But eventually, in the fullness of time, there came One, the Head, even Jesus, Who also must be tempted to see if He would live by EVERY Word that proceeded out of the mouth of God. Then was Satan foiled. For here was One Who lived by "It is written," and that Masterpiece of God overcame by reflecting God's Word. Then was this manifested Perfect One given to the cross, as the Perfect Lamb of God for the perfect sacrifice. And on the 'tree' He received the wounds unto death that we, by Him and because of Him, might feed from the Tree of Life, and that Life freely given would enable us to overcome, and express the Word of God. And now to these Sons of God, who by Him overcome, are given the privilege of the paradise of God, and the constant fellowship of Jesus Christ. There will never more be any separation from Him, whither He goes, His Bride will go. What is His, He shares with His beloved on a joint-heir relationship. The secret things will be revealed. The dark things will be made plain. We shall know as we are known. And we shall be like Him. This is the heritage of the overcomer who has overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the Word of testimony to Jesus Christ.
How we long for that day when the crooked roads will all be straightened, and we will be with Him, time without end. May that day hasten its appearance, and may we hasten to obey His Word and thereby prove our worthiness to share His glory.
"He that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches." How tragic it is that this first age did not listen to the Spirit. Instead it listened to man. But thank God, in the last age there will be a group rise up, the True Bride of the last day, and she will listen to the Spirit. In that day of gross darkness the Light will return by the pure Word and we will return to the power of Pentecost and welcome back the Lord Jesus Christ" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 107:5-108:4). nl1253.htm
