Was the Dominion-Fox Settlement Staged to Legitimize Joe Biden's Stolen Election?
April 21, 2023 — The news that a settlement has been reached in the Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit against Fox News, and Fox has agreed to pay Dominion $787.5 million seems as ridiculous as it sounds in light of the fact that the amount is up to 20 times more than the company is worth. Dominion had to prove that Fox falsely reported the election information and did so with malice, which requires a much higher standard to prove in court. It also seemed that there is reason to believe that Fox News had information that could have aided them in their defense, and chose not to use it. Why? Dominion worked with State election officials to thwart all efforts to audit their machines, so why didn't Fox demand an audit of the Dominion machines and software? It makes me wonder if the whole thing was staged to give the fraudulent 2020 election to install Joe Biden legitimacy and stop all of the unanswered questions that still beg to be answered.
In June 2019 Former Georgia Secretary of State and current Governor Brian Kemp . . . announced a $130 million Chinese investment in Georgia. uncensored.co reported that an "investigation into SEC filings has revealed that the firm which owns Dominion Voting Systems, Staple Street Capitol, received $400 million dollars from UBS Securities LTD, a Swiss bank with close links to the Chinese government less than a month before the election. Dominion also received $200 million dollars from them in 2012." The liberal-funded fact-check sites tried to deny it so here are the facts from uncensored.co. "UBS Securities is a Swiss investment bank that owns 24.99% of UBS Securities Co LTD, a Chinese Investment Bank. The remaining 75% of UBS Securities CO LTD is owned by the Chinese government," states the report . . . Full story: jameshfetzer.org
Comment: Fake news, managed by both sides here to make Dominion look innocent, give legitimacy to a voting system no one believes in anymore, and scare everyone else off from criticizing Dominion. No matter the outcome of this fake trial, almost everyone already knows that elections are being rigged by computers, and in other ways.
China's Pivot to World Markets, Washington's Pivot to World Wars
April 18, 2023 — China and the United States are moving in polar opposite directions: Beijing is rapidly becoming the center of overseas investments in high tech industries, including robotics, nuclear energy and advanced machinery with collaboration from centers of technological excellence, like Germany . . . Washington is pursuing a predatory military pivot to the least productive regions with collaboration from its most barbaric allies, like Saudi Arabia. China is advancing to global economic superiority by borrowing and innovating the most advanced methods of production, while the US degrades and debases its past immense productive achievements to promote wars of destruction.
By the second decade of the 21st century Chinese investors moved into Germany, Europe's most advanced industrial giant. During the first 6 months of 2016 Chinese investors acquired 37 German companies, compared with 39 in all of 2015 . . . China is rapidly moving to automate its industries, with plans to double the robot density of the US by the year 2020 . . . The Anglo-American and German empires are on the defensive . . . Led by the US, their reliance on military conquests (militaristic empire-building) absorb public resources, while China has directed its domestic resources toward innovative and advanced technology . . . China bought the entire Western companies producing the machines and their technology—and then implemented Chinese technological improvements. China successfully outgrew the crisis, defeated its adversaries and proceeded to expand local consumption and stabilized rulership . . . successfully resisted US military pressures and even 'turned the tables' by advancing on the West . . .

Will the End of the Petrodollar End the US Empire?
April 17, 2023 — Future historians may say that the most significant event of 2023 . . . event with the most long-term significance may be . . . Saudi Arabia’s movement toward accepting currencies other than the US dollar for oil payments. After President Nixon severed the last link between the dollar and gold, his administration negotiated a deal with the Saudi government . . . The resulting “petrodollar” is a major reason why the dollar has maintained its world reserve currency status . . . driven in part by resentment of America’s foreign policy, including, in particular, the US government’s increasing use of economic sanctions. Dethroning the dollar from its world reserve currency status makes it easier for countries to ignore these sanctions. De-dollarization will negatively impact the US government’s ability to manage its over 30 trillion dollars debt . . . As more countries abandon the dollar, the Fed will become less able to monetize the federal government’s debt without creating hyperinflation. This will result in a dollar crisis and an economic meltdown worse than the Great Depression. This crisis will lead to the end of the welfare-warfare-fiat currency system . . .

The Truth about Axis Sally who tells her Story
June 14, 2021 — This is a 1983 interview done with Mildred Gillars, better known as the 'traitor' Axis Sally, at her home in Columbus, Ohio: What brought you to live in Germany? . . . I had the chance to go to Germany to study the arts . . . I was completely impressed as Hitler had just been elected a year earlier, but already the people beamed with enthusiasm at the turnaround. The world was still in the depths of the worldwide depression, but Germany was not. It had been turned around almost overnight. I liked it so much I decided to make a life there.
QUESTION: Why do you think Hitler was so good, he is the world's most evil man, who killed millions and made the Germans live as slaves, right?
Mildred: Oh, you must be smarter than that, live as slaves? They would not have fought to the bitter end if that were the case. I do not even know where to begin with this; I suppose I could start by telling you that a few Jews have shaped our minds regarding this. Stalin wiped out upwards of 30 million Europeans yet because communism was a Jewish creation, they keep this hush-hush. Hitler only wanted Jewish power broken; because of this, he incurred their wrath. They started the war due to this. I have never seen and will never see again a leader so adored by the people as Adolf Hitler. Germany was transformed into a country never before seen; everyone was on the same page so to speak.
It was all about helping each other. In Dresden, everyone took a weekend every spring and cleaned their neighbourhood, and aided the old in chores. The youth groups sang and did chores around town to keep it looking good. No one went hungry, the poor were well cared for, and the only thing asked was that they want to help themselves . . . In 1934, all I saw was construction everywhere, and the whole nation underwent rebuilding. As an American, I was welcomed with open arms, as the Germans wanted to show foreigners how peaceful things were, unlike the world's press reports. Jews were left alone, the only ones affected were criminals, those who were unjustly rewarded, and monopolies created by Jewish power.
Germany had been on the brink of a communist revolution led by Bolshevik Jews, and Hitler stopped this and punished them for it. If they were loyal to the state, they were left alone, and most were. All of my time in Germany I never saw anyone mistreated, and I was allowed to visit prison camps. The lies about the camps will someday be known, no one was killed in them by a German plan. The Allies killed more inmates in the camps than the Germans did. They keep that hidden too; they bombed camps and killed thousands. They also kept needed supplies from getting to the camps near the end, which caused sickness and many more deaths . . . Full story: europerenaissance.com

They'd believe that huge shoes fit the feet of a clown
And that hijackers knew that our jets would stand down.
They'd believe those two Chechens, and it could make you cry,
Could never be patsies for the FBI,
And the turmoil in Ukraine, they have the impression,
Is every bit caused by Putin's aggression. (Dave Martin).

Sovereignty and the Third Pull
Psalm 8:1-9, "O LORD, our Lord, the majesty and glory of Your Name fills all the earth and overflows the heavens. From the mouths of sucklings and infants God has founded an invincible bulwark for Himself against His enemies, an incontrovertible apology sufficient to bring all of His opponents to silence."
"And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that Jesus did, and the children crying in the temple saying, "Hosanna to the Son of David;" they became indignant, and said to Him, "Do you hear what they say?" Jesus replied, "Yes; have you never read, Out of the mouth of infants and nursing babes You have prepared praise for Yourself?" And He left them" (Matthew 21:16).
"May their example shame and silence Your adversaries. When I look up into the night skies and see the work of Your fingers—the moon and the stars You have made—what is man that You take thought of him? And the son of man that You care for him?"
The following words show that the psalmist has in view the sovereignty which has been given to man, created on earth "in the image of God" (Genesis 1:26). The divine image or soul in man, which endows him with the royal prerogative over the creatures of the world. All the born-again man lacks that the Elohim possess is the immateriality of our theophany or angel (Hebrews 12:1; Revelation 5:8-11). Despite our present state of humiliation man has retained his divine peculiarities since the creation in consequence of the provision of divine love in spite of the fall: 'You crowned him with glory and honor. You put him in charge of the works of everything You made; everything is put under His authority".
Divine love . . . unchanging . . . in spite of the fall! Our sovereignty over earth and all therein is secure and in the process of restitution.
The sovereignty of our first parents in Eden was complete, the sovereignty of man is now partial, but the Last Adam regained that sovereignty in its fullness for Himself and it is realized for His redeemed in the Messianic Kingdom or Millennium according to prophecy (Isaiah 11:6-9). "They'll not hurt or destroy" in the Millennium." The Devil will be present but he will be bound until the general resurrection when his subjects are raised for the Great White Throne Judgment. He will have no effect upon us because we are eternal, glorified and immune from his wiles as elect Adam was immune from the deceit of Lucifer—the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. It's the Devil that makes wild beasts tear and rip and eat and things like that, the way they do. It's Satan that does that (63-1110E, He that is in You, par. 176; 64-0112, Shalom, par. 162; 64-0802, The Future Home of the Heavenly Bridegroom and the Earthly Bride). "All sheep and oxen, wild animals too, the birds and fish, and all the life in the seas. O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is Your Name in all the earth"!
Among created things it is especially man, whom God has used on earth as the instrument of His communications and organ of His revelations. He has given us the capacity of speech, and thereby, even in the mouths of the smallest children, He has prepared for Himself that power that was best adapted to refute the adversaries of His Bride through the Ages, and to spread abroad His true and holy Name.
"God brought the animals to Adam to see what he as lord of this world would call them"—by divine intuition of their characteristics—not by arbitrary appellations. This was an illustration of our "third pull," and by faith Adam could command a mountain or tree to remove (Mark 11:23). The work of Adam's Father, God, was speaking His creative thoughts, and as the crown of creation, Adam was formed on the seventh day as a full grown man, with the skill and knowledge sufficient to maintain his lordship over nature.
Genesis 2:1-9, "Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had made (by speaking the Word); and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had (Heb.) 'asah' made or fashioned from existing material. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had rested from all His work which God (Heb.) 'bara' created out of nothing but His spoken Word and (Heb.) 'asah' made from existing material. This is the course of history of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God (Heb.) 'asah' made the earth and the heavens (from existing material). And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew (57-0113, What does it Take to Make a Christian Life, par. E-42): for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. But there arose a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. And the LORD God (Heb.) 'yatsar' (formed or shaped) man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of lives (both natural and spiritual); and man became a living (Heb.) 'neshamah' soul" (a word applied to God or man, never to any irrational creature). Man alone received his life from God; it is not the product of his body. This life distinguishes his higher principle of being, as compared with the existence of the animals (Genesis 2:19).
"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 made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the Tree of Life also in the midst of the garden, and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil." Careful study of Genesis 1 and 2 displays a revelation somewhat similar to the deception we had learned from the organized Tree of Knowledge.
The language is irregular and parenthetical, but artless and clear in its general design, and you will observe from the foregoing and what follows, that contrary to Darwin's theory of evolution the Lord God formed man before the lower animals, and that prior to the seventh day there was no vegetation to sustain them (Genesis 2:4-7).
Genesis 2:15-17, "And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the Garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it." The garden was the location of human vocation, and enjoyment in undivided unity. This enjoyment was to eat, and to refrain. Likewise the vocation has two duties: to dress, and to keep, protect and guard. The first charge is to dress it, for nature which grows wild without the care of man is ennobled under the human hand. This paradisiacal work differed from the burden of later work on cultivated land but it was work as the six days of creation was a work of God. Genesis 2:16-17, "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 will surely die".
Adam's second charge was to keep, protect and guard the Garden of Eden in the midst of which was the theophany of Christ, the Tree of Life, and Lucifer, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Brother Branham said "John saw it as a vision, but it was a literal happening. If you'll turn to Isaiah 14:12 . . . Lets read now about Lucifer: "How you have fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!" . . . (an angelic being from the heaven) . . ."How you have fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! You have been cut down to the ground, you have weakened the nations! You said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, and I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit on the mount of the congregation, in the side of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High." So you see it wasn't a vision. Absolutely, Lucifer was cast out of heaven".
Now, let's turn in the New Testament to Luke 10:18, just a minute . . . (Jesus speaking) "I beheld Satan as lightning falling from heaven." See, Satan was the original archangel of God. He once dwelt in the heaven. He once was the greatest person in the heavens outside of God. He was God's right-hand man to fellowship [like Israel's high priest or Rome's pope], and he got puffed up in his heart (59-0628E, Questions and Answers, Q. 79).
The cherubim in the Most Holy Place screening the Ark of the Covenant with their wings symbolized the life of creation and confessed the heavenly King. Lucifer, "the anointed cherub that covereth" [guards or protects], was the sum of wisdom and beauty. Self-elated as Israel's high priest bearing the lights and colours of the Urim Thumim, he devised a scheme whereby incarnate in the Serpent he might seduce Eve and vicariously sire Cain's race which is absent the Book of Life, then hybridize Adam's race to usurp Michael's inheritance.
He also incarnate the King of Tyre whose city and self-elation reflected Lucifer's culture and scheming wisdom (see Ezekiel 26 and 27). Three and a half thousand years beforehand he dwelt in the Garden of Eden where he incarnate the Serpent to seduce Eve; now he controls every nation (Matthew 4:8-9). But Revelation 12:12 and Luke 1:33 say, "Rejoice, you heavens and you earth, for the kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ. And He shall reign on earth".
Brother Branham explained, "I showed you how in the Scriptures that the church got off on the wrong track by taking man's organizations: same thing, Israel got off the track by denouncing God as their King and wanted Saul for a king. And when their real King comes, Jesus, they didn't know Him, because His preaching and His teachings were so much different from the earthly kings, till they didn't know Him. And today when the King of the Church, the Holy Spirit, when He's here, and He comes into the Church . . . to give them new birth, it's so different from these organizations and denominations till they say, "Aw, that looks like holy-rollers to me." See?"
Before creation God knew the thoughts and intents of Lucifer's heart but the Lord is not an arbitrary judge and placed Lucifer on free moral agency as he has placed you and me, "And Lucifer was the first one to take the wrong road" (60-0158, Adoption Part II, par. 84). He made his decision before he was cast down. And when he came down to earth he sought to accomplish his plan and influence our kings, presidents, prime ministers and preachers, citizens and congregations. Politics: Fascism, Nazism and Communism are gathering them all to Armageddon today. Religion: Balaamism substitutes human reasoning for faith and nicolaitanism binds all to a clericalism and organized religion (Vatican II; Revelation 13:15-18; 16:12-16; 17:11-18).
Genesis 2:18-25, "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 (Heb.) 'yatsar' formed (squeezed or molded) every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them to 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 suitable helper. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh; and the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, he made 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. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed".
The Last Adam was born in 4BC, a helpless babe in the arms of a humble holy woman to regain man's lost lordship. Jesus Christ was "the beginning of the creation of God" 2,027 years ago (Revelation 3:14)—Jesus was not the beginning of God's creation, which was the earth, sky and seas.
In Genesis 1:21-25, "God said, Let the waters (Heb.) 'sharats,' teem or bring forth abundantly the moving creature that has life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. And God said, let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping things, and beasts of the earth after his kind: and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and everything that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good".
Genesis 1:26-28, "And God said, Let us make man (of Adam's race) in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth".
The regenerated are made (Heb.) 'asah' "in God's image"—spirit men and women foreknown in Christ "Who is the image or ideal of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature" (Colossians 1:15; Hebrews 1:3; Revelation 3:14), "and after His "likeness," similitude or theophany (Genesis 5:1). "Image" presupposes a prototype as the monarch is the prototype and his head on the coin is the image. "Likeness" implies mere resemblance. Thus the "image" of God remains in some degree after the fall (James 3:9; I Corinthians 11:7) and we are striving toward the likeness of God that we are to be.
Some speculate that the "us" refers to the Babylonian trinity of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic Church and her (once) Protestant daughter churches. However, the anthropomorphic language in man's creation implies collective counsel in God's mind: "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness," refers to the Sole Person of God and His Family, the elect who are Attributes of Himself, foreknown in His eternal thinking before the foundation of the world. The divine mind did not stop at the contemplation of His first creation but looked on to him as renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him (Colossians 3:10). Only as partaker of regeneration in oneness with the Word would he attain the true end for which he was made. In I Corinthians 11:7 man is called "the image and glory of God," this ideal is realized fully in the Son of man (Psalms 8:4-5). "But the woman is the glory of the man," likeness or resemblance
The archetype is in God; man in his ideal is molded after the model realized in the Son of Man, "the image of the invisible God, the Firstborn of every creature," the incarnate God, already existing in the divine point of view (Colossians 1:15), with body and animal life akin to the animal world, yet the noble temple of an immortal spirit, with reason, imagination and freewill finding its true exercise in conformity to God's will, and a spiritual nature resembling God's, reflecting God's truth, righteousness, and love; capable of reasoning in the abstract which the lower animals cannot, as they have no general signs for universal ideas. They lack the power to abstract ideas from the particular outward objects as their want of a general language proves. Man is the interpreter of nature's inarticulate praises to nature's God. The uniformity of type in the animal kingdom, including man in his bodily nature, and the affinity of structure in the homologous bones, are due not to development from a common parentage, but to the common archetype in the divine mind, of which the cherubim was probably an ideal representation. After man fell, is he still called "in the image of God," with a view to his future restoration in the God-man. It is a "palace" in God's design, for a while spoiled by the "strong man" Satan, but to be reinstated by the "stronger" Man with God's archetypal image and likeness more vividly than ever standing forth (Luke 11:21).
Adam is the generic term for man, including woman (Genesis 1:26-27). Christ came to reveal not only God, but MAN to us; He alone is therefore called "THE Son of man"; the common property of mankind; who alone realizes the original ideal of man: body, spirit, and soul, in the image and likeness of God, the body subordinate to the animal and intellectual spirit, and the spirit to the soul (I Thessalonians 5:23), combining at once the man and woman (Galatians 3:28); and in whom believers shall realize it by vital union with Him: having the masculine graces, majesty, power, wisdom, strength, courage, with all woman's purity, intuitive tact, meekness, gentleness, sympathetic tenderness and love, such as Roman Catholics have pictured in the Virgin Mary. So the first Adam, the type, combined both (Genesis 1:27). The creation of woman from man (marked by the very names isha, ish) subsequently implies the same truth.
Lucifer was "the anointed cherub that covered" stopped approach, shut off, fenced in, guarded, "with the right hand to fellowship" till "iniquity was found in him" (Ezekiel 28:13-17). Cast down to earth without a physical body he incarnate the Serpent, the King of Tyre, Legion, the swineherd, Judas, et al. and soon Rome's Pope (Daniel 7:25; 8:25; 11:36; II Thessalonians 2:3, 8; Revelation 13:4-18).
Following the Fall of the great cherub, Adam was commissioned to guard the Garden of Eden but the dominion he was given as God's vice-regent over the lower world was soon forfeited making Satan "the god of this world" (II Corinthians 4:4). The four cherubim were not outside the garden impeding access (as Genesis 3:24 is often taught), but "keeping the way to the Tree of Life"—what man failed to do (Genesis 2:15). So the cherubim's position implies, not at the threshold but above and over the Mercy Seat of the throne of God (Exodus 25:17-22). In Ezekiel 1, 10 and Revelation 4:2-11 they are the living ones combining the highest forms of creaturely life, suggesting to man God's interest in life, in paradise and even in a share of His throne through divine grace. As the flaming sword represents justice excluding man access by his own righteousness, so the cherubim represent man reunited to God upon the ground of the mercy-seat, which is Christ our propitiation.
Under the Law the Twelve Tribes were God's Throne guards in the Holy of Holies. Under the standard of the Lion, representing wild animals Judah "kept the way" from the East; under the standard of an Ox, representing domestic animals, Ephraim guarded the West. Reuben under the ensign of a Man, signifying intelligence, guarded the way from the South, and under the standard of an Eagle Dan represented bird life and guarded the way from the North.
The living creatures represent the living Church, the Church that's living by the power and the resurrection of Jesus Christ (61-0101, Revelation Chapter Four, Part II, par. 161). They are God's Throne guards (61-0108, Revelation, Chapter Four Part III, par. 264-265, 272; 275-276).
"God made Angels, and He made Cherubims with wings and Angels without wings" (53-0326, Israel at the Red Sea Part I, par. 15). There is a hierarchy among the "Living Creatures" represented by the cherubim and crowned by man. We find this in Genesis 9:8-17 where God established His Covenant with Noah "and every living creature of all flesh" after the waters of the Great Flood subsided.
"Those Seraphims . . . the burners of the sacrifice . . . making, the children and the worshipper's way in, assuring them the way. And these Seraphims, who stay in the Presence of God, have to cover their faces (63-0112, Influence, par. 159).
Brother Branham said, "I wonder, today, if we would see the death of the churches, to see the dying out of the people, from the Spirit, going on back and serving their creeds . . . It made . . . Isaiah the prophet, go to his knees. He went to the temple, and there he . . . saw God on His Throne, lifted way up high. God was going to show him what to look at. Not look at one another; look up there to what He is . . . lifted up high on His Throne . . . There it was Angels [your theophany, the appearance of your glorified body] and then Seraphims . . . the burner of the sacrifice, making the way for the sinners' approach, a real high order of holiness in the temple of God [typing the Church Age Messengers or seven stars in Jesus' right hand and over the lamp stand], and then Cherubims.
"Isaiah saw, when he was down on the floor at the altar, praying, "Lord, I'm a man of unclean lips, and I dwell among unclean people." Making his confession . . . he looked up and he saw these Seraphims. They had two wings over their faces, and two wings over their feet, and were flying with two wings, crying, "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty! Holy, holy, holy, all of God is holy! Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty!" (64-0315, Influence, par. 119-122).
The temporary exclusion from the Tree of Life was a merciful provision for fallen man, (for immortality in a lost state is a curse), until he should have it restored through Christ (Revelation 22:2; Revelation 22:14; Revelation 2:7). However it is more than regained for man in the person of Christ. Even in His humiliation He exercised unlimited sway over man's bodily diseases and even death itself (Lazarus), over vegetable nature (fig tree), the dumb animal kingdom (the ass's colt), the inorganic world, the restless sea, and the invisible world of demons.
Under the New Testament the four cherubim, represented by the four Gospels, direct our way to the Tree of Life in the Most Holy Place—represented as the Book of the Acts of the Holy Spirit in the Apostles, and in you and me. On the East the Gospel of St. Matthew and the office of Apostle represents the cherub with the face of a lion. On the West the Gospel of Mark and the office of Pastor represents the cherub with the face of an ox. On the South the Gospel of Luke and the office of Teacher represents the cherub with the face of a man, while on the North the Gospel of John and the offices of Evangelist and Prophet represent the cherub with the face of a flying eagle. Audience before the Throne requires two or three witnesses.
David saw the Bride Tree as a continuation of the last Adam as Eve had been a continuation of the first Adam; whereas Eve was beguiled, Christ's Bride cannot be deceived on the revealed Word of God for she is at one with the Word by their invisible marriage union. Jeremiah 17:8 describes David's revelation. Whereas the Bride Tree is "predestinated unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself according to the good pleasure of His will" (Ephesians 1:5), the churches of today are not grafted into the Root and Offspring of David but into branches of Anglican, Baptist, Methodist, Catholic, Pentecostal and myriad other denominations—far from the water of Life, bearing their own fruit and casting their crop as prophesied in II Thessalonians 2:3, II Timothy 3:1 – 4:4, Revelation 3:17-20 and 18:4.
The Last Adam combined in Himself as Representative Head of redeemed men and women the characteristic excellencies of both woman and man, as the first Adam possessed before Eve was taken out of his side. Her perfect suitability and fitness for him is marked by Jehovah's words, "I will make him a suitable helper" according to his needs so that as soon as he sees her he may recognize the complement of himself. Thus Christ's Bride, the Church, was taken from the pierced side of her Bridegroom Jesus Christ, while He slept in death; faith vitally uniting her to Him in His death and resurrection as "bone of His bone, and flesh of His flesh" (Ephesians 5:25-32.)
This draws us to the Hebrew word '(banah)' which is to rebuild, establish, cause to continue; woman is not an original creation but a by-product formed from a rib taken from Adam's side many years after Adam had named the animals. In Genesis 3:22 "The Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, (now, He never said the woman has become one), the man has become one, to know good and evil (the woman did not know; she was deceived. Do you see it?). So He drove out the man; and He placed at the east of the Garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turns every way, (see the four beasts? There are only four ways you can go, see: east, north, west, and south. These Cherubims had a flaming sword at the gate of the Garden) to keep the way of the Tree of life." Cause if man ever got a hold of the Tree of Life, then he could live forever (61-0108, Revelation Chapter Four, Part III, par. 286-288).
Romans 8:16-25, "The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God, and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow-heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with him that we may also be glorified with Him. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed to us. For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the manifestation of the sons of God. For creation was not subjected to futility willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will be set free from its bondage to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for the full adoption, by the redemption of our body. For in hope we have been saved: but hope that is seen is not hope: for why does one also hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, then with perseverance we wait eagerly for it".
