Bible Believers' Newsletter 522
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it is good to share God's unchanging Word with you.
We encourage subscribing Brethren not yet in fellowship with a "Message" Church to call (812) 256 1177 or (812) 225 0175 in the United States or email email@example.com to request contact details for Churches in your area, wherever you live. Meet the pastor, sit under his ministry and prove all things in your own Bible. We are at the end of the Gentile dispensation and many readers are far behind in the revelation of what the Lord has been doing. Please redeem what little time remains for grace. The hour is late: China is now provoking innocent Islamic citizens, to curry favour with her NWO partners who wish to hasten the "hot" stage of World War III, and to distract media attention from the situation in Tibet.
The spoken Word of the Prophet William Branham is the Key that unlocks eternal Life from God's written Word. Every soul who reads this Newsletter should be studying the Message of the Prophet with a view to understanding what it means, not memorizing what he said. Remember, the foolish virgins are in the circle of this Message.
Many of you have not been re-baptized in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ since coming to a clear revelation of the true oneness of the godhead and repenting of past unbelief. Scripture commands, "Repent and be baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of past sins, with the promise that if you press on, you will receive the baptism with the Holy Ghost, which is the new birth" (Acts 2:38-39). You who are born-again but not yet baptized in Scriptural Water baptism will want to rush to the water once you read this.
Last week we focused upon God's One Eternal Purpose, which is to express the fullness of Himself in the Perfect Man, the virgin-born Jesus Messiah, the Author or Beginner of the creation of God Himself in a new creation, and then reproduce the stature of the Perfect man in His many-membered Bride—the continuation of the same creation. In this issue we turn our attention back to the creation of God.
We welcome long time guest contributor, Henry Makow PhD who discusses feminism and the new world order on his website henrymakow.com and in his weekly radio program, "Male Mentoring." His latest book, "The Cruel Hoax: Feminism and the New World Order," explains how heterosexuality works, and exposes Feminism and Homosexuality. Henry considers himself an assimilated Jew who believes Christ's Gospel of Love. His contribution in this issue demonstrates one cancer destroying Western civilization is the Illuminati's Jewish central banksters who control our economic, political, cultural and spiritual institutions. In other words, our nations' "leadership" represents an occult imperial power at war with us; and we can't even recognize it because our institutions have been subverted. (Insert Australia's "Christian" Prime Minister Kevin Rudd does obeisance to Pharisaism).
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.
Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott
The Final Trump of the British over America
April 5, 2008 Unlike the 18th Century battles fought on American soil to give us our independence from Great Britain, the final battle of brilliant manoeuvres and institutions began in 1903 to delicately orchestrate the gradual reintegration of the United States with Great Britain. The military genius of the plan would be for American armies to unite with Britain in the name of world peace; the common enemy being, WWI, WWII, and the war on terrorism. The second wave would be on an international level to bring order to a disorderly global market while merging financial and regulatory authorities . . . Now the international bankers, who run the Treasury, have signed an agreement with the British to merge our Treasury Department and the SEC with theirs. This is NOT being addressed at the hearings between Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and our congress at the respective House and Senate committees . . .
The British outvote the US on all international levels. Powerful groups comprised of key CEO's, economists, and politicians, such as the Pilgrim Society, the RIIA and the Council on Foreign Relations, are working to reintegrate America under British rule. Our military and intelligence agencies now work very closely with one another, and now our financial and regulatory system is being merged through the UK-US working group. And I say to you, not one shot was fired!

Comment: An excellent analysis in which only the name has been changed . . . to protect the guilty. We are not told who took over Britain? "And I say to you, not one shot was fired" . . . then!
The same unnamed group that rules Britain (with a block of 53 Commonwealth votes in the UN) also devised and controls Communism (with its votes in the UN). According to the Congressional Record of January 10, 1963, two months before the Seventh Church Age ended, it was noted that 45 of Communist Russia's goals had been accepted by the USA. The tenth was to "Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the UN." Here again is the 'hidden hand' that hides behind the name and nation Sister Veon, Lyndon LaRouche and others call Britain, and "outvotes the US on all international levels." This week our guest contributor, Henry Makow, spills the beans.
As you read this list you will recognize several indictments made by William Branham such as, "US willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war." We are approaching the culmination of the "peace offensive" announced in 1950 by Judaeo-Communist Russian delegate to the UN, Dimitri Manuilski "to put the bourgeoisie to sleep." And America's leaders subservient to the CFR have sold out the plebs while the nation wallowed in sin.
US Lawmakers Invested in Iraq, Afghanistan Wars
Washington, April 7, 2008 Members of Congress invested nearly 196 million dollars of their own money in companies that receive hundreds of millions of dollars a day from Pentagon contracts to provide goods and services to US armed forces . . . Senator John Kerry, the Democrat from Massachusetts who staked his 2004 presidential bid in part on his opposition to the war, tops the list of investors. His holdings in firms with Pentagon contracts of at least five million dollars stood at between 28.9 million dollars and 38.2 million dollars as of December 31, 2006. Kerry sits on the Senate foreign relations panel . . .
In all, 151 current members of Congress—more than one-fourth of the total—have invested between 78.7 million dollars and 195.5 million dollars in companies that received defence contracts of at least 5.0 million dollars. . . These companies received more than 275.6 billion dollars from the government in 2006, or 755 million dollars per day, says budget watchdog group OMB Watch. The investments yielded lawmakers 15.8 million—62 million dollars in dividend income, capital gains, royalties, and interest from 2004 through 2006, says CRP . . . Full story: ipsnews.net

Minerals: Crumbling Bedrock of US Security
April, 2008 America's leaders have allowed the nation's once formidable mining industry to erode. Many minerals—including some that are strategically important for the military—are no longer produced in the United States at all. Due to lack of investment, radical environmental activism, and low-cost foreign competition . . . Back in 1985, the secretary of the United States Army testified before Congress that America was more than 50 percent dependent on foreign sources for 23 of 40 critical materials essential to US national security. . .
The list of minerals that America no longer produces is astounding and growing. America no longer produces indium (as of 1970), arsenic (1985), gallium (1987), bauxite or alumina (1989), tin (1990), thorium (1992), mercury (1993), tungsten (1995), fluorspar (1997), nickel (1999), vanadium (2000), antimony (2001) or rare earth minerals (2002), to name a few. Then there is a whole host of other minerals, like iron, zinc and titanium that America produces at greatly reduced volumes . . . America has closed its only rare earth mine (one owned by Unocal, which the Chinese state-owned company CNOOC tried to purchase in 2005), has boarded up the Rare Earth Information Center, and has not only ceased stockpiling rare earth minerals but has also largely sold off national stockpiles.
If any doubt exists as to China's intentions, on February 4 Chinese state-owned companies announced four deals in the resources sector. The deals came only two days after Chinalco, China's aluminum company, grabbed a 12 percent stake in Rio Tinto to prevent the Australian mining giant BHP Billiton from gaining control over the $132 billion diversified mining giant. The Times called China's action "the first shots in a new economic war" . . . Full story: thetrumpet.com

UK Researchers announce First Cloned Human/Animal Hybrid Embryos
April 6, 2008 The research team at Newcastle University that had previously asked permission to create cloned human/cow embryos, has announced that it has already succeeded in creating the hybrids, reports Hilary White, LifeSiteNews.com. The Times newspaper reported today that the research has gone ahead and generated "admixed embryos" that share human and animal DNA and lived for three days in the lab. The largest grew to 32 cells. The researchers said that their goal is to create patent-specific genetically matched embryonic stem cells . . .

Saudi Monarch proposes Monotheistic Dialogue with 'Our Brothers'
March 28, 2008 A proposal for religious dialogue presented by King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has prompted warm reactions from several Jewish, Christian and Muslim leaders in what could be a major development in inter-religious relations . . . "The idea is to ask representatives of all monotheistic religions to sit together with their brothers in faith and sincerity to all religions as we all believe in the same God," King Abdullah said Monday night at a Riyadh seminar on "Culture and the Respect of Religions."
King Abdullah said he presented the idea to Pope Benedict XVI when he visited the Vatican in November of last year. Saying the Pope had "warmly welcomed" him in "a meeting of a human to a human which I would never forget," the king said he aimed "to seek the consent of Allah according to what he ordered in the religions: the Torah, Bible and Quran". . .

Communism A Ruse for Illuminati Jewish Theft & Murder
By Henry Makow Ph.D.
In 1869, Jacob Brafmann, a Jewish convert to Christianity published a book in Russian about the Jewish communal organization, "The Kahal" which suggests that—unknown to many Jews and non-Jews—organized Jewry indeed was conspiring against the Gentile population. Like most books of this kind, it is now unavailable.
Luckily, in November 1881, Mme. Z.A. Ragozin published a thorough account of it in "The Century Magazine" (Vol. 23 Issue I) under the title "Russian Jews and Gentiles (From a Russian Point of View)." (This remarkable essay is online).
Ragozin was a scholar of ancient Near Eastern history who, in the 1880's, published a half dozen books on the Chaldeans, Persians, Assyrians etc.
Brafmann's book was based on a thousand internal documents of the Kahal. Its most startling revelation:
The Kahal followed the Talmudic prescription that Gentile property is a "free-for-all" for Jews who, for a fee, are pre-authorized by the town council ("The Kahal") to finagle it. Obviously a source of anti-Semitism, it may also explain the true predatory nature of Communism (and the New World Order) behind the idealistic-sounding window dressing.
For example, Brafmann, who Jewish historians refer to "an informer," explains Jew "N" buys the rights to Gentile "M"'s house.
"He has acquired 'khazaka' i.e. right of ownership over the house of Gentile "M," in force thereof he is given the exclusive right, guaranteed from interference or competition from other Jews, to get possession of the said house . . . 'by any means whatever.' Until he has finally succeeded in transferring it to his official possession, he alone is entitled to rent that house from its present owner, to trade in it, to lend money to the owner or to other Gentiles who may dwell in it—to make profits out of them in any way [that] his ingenuity may suggest. . . "
The second part may provide a model of how individuals became subjects of a Jew.
"Sometimes the Kahal sells to a Jew even the person of some particular Gentile without any immovable property attached. [This is called 'meropie'.] It is in some places forbidden for Jews to enter into relations with that person with prejudice to the first; but in other places it is free to every Jew to . . . lend him money, give him bribes, and despoil him, for it is said that the property of a Gentile is 'hefker' [free to all] and whoever gets possession of it, to him it shall belong" (p.912).
According to Brafmann, the documents "show as clearly as possible in what way and by what means the Jews, notwithstanding their limited rights, have always succeeded in driving alien elements from the towns and boroughs where they have settled, to get into their hands the capital and immovable property in those places, and to get rid of all competition in commerce and trades, as has been the case in the western provinces of Russia, in Poland, Galicia, Romania. . ."
Selling alcohol and money lending were ways to finagle property. The Jewish vodka dealers would show up at harvest time and sell alcohol to farmers on credit. Before long the drinking habits of the peasants and compound interest combined to transfer the property and future harvests into the vodka dealer's hands (E. Michael Jones, "Russian Roulette" Culture Wars, May 2006, p. 24).
A REVOLUTIONARY WAY OF STEALING
Fifty years after "The Kahal" was published; Christian Russian civilization was brutally destroyed by the Bolshevik Revolution which was a front for the Illuminati Jewish bankers. The salient aspects of this revolution, apart from the imposition of a ghastly police state, was the confiscation of untold Gentile wealth and the slaughter of millions of non-Jews mostly by Jews. This holocaust gets little notice because Illuminati Jews control the mass media and education system using self-righteous and highly-paid dupes of the "liberal," "feminist" "socialist" and "Marxist" stripe to enforce an intellectual tyranny.
The Rothschild front Kuhn Loeb & Co. got a handsome return of their $20 Million financing of the 1917 revolution. In 1921 Lenin gave them $102 million. (NYTimes August 23, 1921). As well, they may have kept wealth and bank accounts the (Tsar) Romanov's foolishly entrusted to them.
In addition, Illuminati Jewish bankers took ownership of Russian industry. German Secret Service documents instructed the Bolsheviks to "destroy the Russian capitalists as far as you please, but it would by no means be possible to permit the destruction of Russian enterprises."
The German Imperial Bank sent the Bolsheviks in excess of 60 million roubles. In this context, A. N. Field cites Documents 10 and 11 between the bankers and the Bolsheviks: "They give a complete synopsis of the terms on which the German banks after the war were to control Russian industry" ("The Truth About the Slump" (1931) by A.N. Field, pp.62-72).
"THE RED TERROR"
Lenin and Trotsky created the infamous secret service "Cheka" (later renamed OGPU, then NKVD and finally KGB) to steal property and crush resistance.
"The first Cheka units set up in every city or town were engaged first and foremost in the extermination of Tsarist bureaucrats, gendarmes and high ranking officers, the families of White Guards and all citizens whose property was valued at 10,000 roubles or more. There were thousands of scientists and engineers who were killed as "exploiters" and about half the country's doctors were either killed or forced to emigrate. People were murdered at home, in the streets, and in the cellars of Cheka headquarters irrespective of their age" (Slava Katamidze, "Loyal Comrades, Ruthless Killers—The Secret Services of the USSR 1917-1991" p. 14).
Thousands of Christian priests and monks were sent to the Gulag and slaughtered.
"The Church became the target of Bolshevik hostility from the very beginning. Resistance to the confiscation of church properties, especially silver and gold items, was especially fierce. . . Now priests called on their parishes to resist confiscation, accusing the authorities of pocketing most of the proceeds" (Katamidze, p. 25).
It is estimated that the Cheka was responsible for at least 20 million deaths, according to courageous Jewish writer Steve Plocker who says the Cheka was led and staffed mainly by Jews. The Cheka was empowered by Lenin and Trotsky, who were Illuminati Jews and financed by Illuminati Jewish bankers.
"Many Jews sold their soul to the devil of the Communist revolution and have blood on their hands for eternity," Plocker writes. "We mustn't forget that some of the greatest murderers of modern times were Jews."
"TWO KINDS OF JEWS"
In "Russian Jews and Gentiles," Mme Rogozin writes:
"There have of old been Jews of two descriptions, so different as to be like two different races. There were Jews who saw God and proclaimed His law, and those who worshipped the golden calf and yearned for the flesh-pots of Egypt; there were Jews who followed Jesus and those who crucified Him. . ." (p. 909).
Not to excuse the murderers, many rank-and-file Jewish and non-Jewish Communists truly were duped into thinking Communism represented poor workers, the sharing of wealth and social justice. Much like today, Illuminati Jews had brainwashed the flock. However, other Jews did see through the deception and heroically fought against Communism.
The Illuminati puppet masters work arms-length in order to maintain the illusion that history is unfolding in a random fashion. Thus at various times, Stalin did rebel against his handlers and did persecute their Jewish agents. Many believe Stalin was ultimately murdered when he attempted a final crack down.
There are definitely Jews who are part of the Illuminati and those who are not. Of course the former routinely prey on the latter. Bob Chapman recently described how this played out in the sale of Jewish investment banker Bear Stearns.
"Note how Lehman Brothers has been able to raise $4 billion in capital and to take advantage of the Term Securities Auction Facility and the Primary Dealers Credit Facility initiated by the Fed to keep it from going under. Bear was never given these opportunities even though financially it was much stronger than Lehman Brothers. Why, we ask, was there a run on Bear Stearns assets but not on those of the much weaker Lehman Brothers? We'll tell you why. Bear, as a non-insider thorn in the Illuminist side, was forced out and cannibalized by its peers before it had a chance to recover. This is how insiders are allowed to survive and non-insiders are raped and wiped out or merged."
Since the English Revolution, history reflects the gradual process by which mainly Jewish finance and its Satanic Gentile allies have used Freemasonry, "revolution" and war to overthrow Christian civilization and replace it with their economic, social, political and cultural hegemony, i.e. "The New World Order."
I doubt if Illuminati Jewish bankers have a monopoly on avarice but they certainly have been its best exponents. (Haven't they converted most of us?) I suspect the Talmudic spirit (a Chosen People monopolize wealth at the expense of the vast majority who are considered animals) inspired imperialism and still motivates the Illuminati today.
As I have said, the Illuminati Jewish bankers use Jews as pawns and agents. Their partners are Satanists from all ethnic backgrounds who also subvert and betray their own people. Their plan is to disinherit and domesticate ("educate," social engineer, brainwash) the human race to their purpose. They are behind 9/11, the "War on Terror" and the Iraq War. They are behind hate-laws, feminism, multiculturalism, and diversity—all this is mind control and social engineering. (Ever hear multiculturalism foisted on Israel or China?)
A cancer is destroying Western civilization. That cancer is the Illuminati Jewish central bankers who control our economic, political, cultural and spiritual institutions. In other words, our "leadership" represents an occult imperial power at war with us; and we can't even recognize it because our institutions have been subverted.
America today can be compared to Russia before the Revolution. According to W. Schulgin, "the brain of the nation was in [Illuminati] Jewish hands. And it became business as usual to think in Jewish categories . . . In spite of all the restrictions, the Jews controlled the mind of the Russian people." (Jones, Culture Wars, p. 42) Of course, the Illuminati control the Jewish mind.
A real Jew (and Christian and Muslim) stands for God and a universal Moral Order. Thus, world government can never be "good for the Jews" no matter what elite status they enjoy.
Secular humanism cannot replace God. It is a foil for a demented satanic agenda and for more of the bestiality that characterizes the past. Individual Jews will have to decide which kind of Jew they are.

The Creation of God and His One Eternal Purpose Part III
Revelation 3:14, "To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: THUS SAITH THE AMEN, the faithful and true Witness, the beginning of the creation of God".
John 17:22-23, "the glory which You gave Me I have given them; that they may be one, even as We are one: I in them, and You in Me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them, as You have loved Me".
There can be no doubt as to the significance of this primary number one. In all languages it is the symbol of unity. As a cardinal number it denotes unity; as an ordinal it denotes primacy. Unity being indivisible, and not made up of other numbers, is therefore independent of all others, and is the source of all others; so with the Deity. The great First Cause is independent of all. All stand in need of Him, and He needs no assistance from any.
"One" excludes all difference, for there is no second with which it can either harmonize or conflict.
When it is written: "Hear, O Israel, the Lord thy God is one Lord," it excludes absolutely another Lord: it excludes, therefore, all idolatry.
Hence the First Commandment declares "You shall have NO OTHER GODS" (Exodus 20:3). It asserts that there is in God a sufficiency which needs no other; and an independence which admits no other.
It marks the beginning. We must begin with God. All our words and works must be characterized by the first Words of the Bible: "In the beginning GOD." Nothing is right that does not begin with Him. "God first" is the voice of Scripture. "Seek ye FIRST the kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matthew 6:33) is the testimony of Christ. "God first" is the great proclamation. The angels sang: "Glory to God in the highest." This was the beginning of their song. And it was after this that they sang of "good-will" towards man. This, too, must be the great principle governing all our testimony and our work. We cannot give "glory to God" without doing good to men. And there is no real good-will for men which does not spring from a desire to glorify God . . . (Number in Scripture by E.W. Bullinger).
This diagram represents the eternal Spirit, Jehovah (the self-existent One) who is Elohim (the sum of all deity). Jehovah is the One Person of God. It is not the circle, but the dots in the circle that are God. They represent His eternal thoughts, which are the Attributes of Himself—what He is and forever will be. In eternity, God was alone with His thoughts. There were no Seraphim or Cherubim, no angels, no Lucifer, no light or dark, atoms or molecules, just God alone with His thoughts. He was neither the Father nor was He the Son. He was only potentially Father until his first son was born; and only potentially the Son until those Attributes were manifested (Colossians 2:9). Indeed, since God is an object of worship and there was nothing to worship Him, He was only potentially God.
God's thoughts are not like your thoughts or my thoughts that too often blossom but pass away, never coming to fruition. His thoughts are eternal and they are real and will come to pass in their designated and decreed season and time. As such they are unchangeable and can never be added to or diminished for they are the Attributes of "that which is perfect": the Logos or fullness of the Word (I Corinthians 13:10). In Him were Attributes to be God, which means there were Attributes to be Creator. In Him were Attributes to be a Father, Son, Healer, Saviour, Redeemer, a God of Mercy and God of Justice. But He could only receive glory unto Himself if there were an afflicted people in need of healing, a potentially lost people crying for salvation, a needy people desperate for provision, mercy and justice; and a wicked estranged people who had earned His wrath.
Only under the manifestation of such circumstances can He express His Attributes and gather glory to Himself. It would be unjust were He to arbitrarily cause them to fall in sin and death so that they would cry out for forgiveness and redemption, afflict them with illness, or deprive them of necessities to cause them to plead deliverance, healing and provision in order that He could display His Attributes. Since He is the God of Love and also of Justice, He placed His people in a bountiful paradise, apprised of His will and the blessings of obedience as well as the penalty for unbelief and disobedience, with free moral agency to determine their own destiny by returning mutual love or enmity.
In Ephesians 1:3-14 Paul explains that God had a secret plan and purpose in creation as we discussed in Newsletter 516. "How we praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every blessing in the Logos because we belong to Christ, even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless in His Presence. In love He has predestinated us to be recognized as His children through Jesus Christ according to the kind intent of His own will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He has bestowed on us in the beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood and the forgiveness of trespasses, to the measure of the riches of His grace; which He lavished on us, making known to us in all wisdom and insight the secret of His purpose, according to His kind intention which he proposed in Christ: a plan to be brought to completion in the fullness of times (Gk. 'kairos,' opportunity, or "once in a lifetime" times. See Newsletter 286) to unite everything together in Christ, things in heaven, and things on earth."
"In Christ we too were made His Heritage, being predestinated according to His purpose, who works out everything in agreement with the design of His own will, so that we, the first to put our hope in Christ, might bring praise to His glory. In Him you also, after listening to the Message of Truth, the good news of your salvation, have as believers in Him been sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, which is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory".
Being omniscient, the eternal Spirit knew all things that ever would be before creation was manifest and made provision to ensure His purpose would be achieved. His purpose was to take form through "election according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification by the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the Blood of Jesus Christ" or regeneration (I Peter 1:2).
You see, election is based on God's foreknowledge of all choices of all men, before the Logos was created. All that voluntarily manifest His will, which is His Word for their day, prove to be His elect because in expressing His Life their lives are the Token on display. They are His Attributes foreknown and crucified in Christ on Calvary in God's great thinking and can never perish, but have everlasting Life since they were foreknown in Christ the Logos before He was made flesh.
Romans 8:20-30, "We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover those whom He did predestinate, He also called: and whom He called, He also justified: and whom He justified, He has also glorified".
Read the remainder of Romans 8 and you will see that God's elect can never come into condemnation since they are His own Attributes foreknown as crucified in Christ on Calvary, justified, raised in Him, and now seated in Christ in Heavenly places, which is His eternal thoughts now being expressed as His Word. (See also Romans 4:13-25; II Corinthians 5:13-21; Ephesians 2:1-10; 4:30). And all of this in Christ the Logos, who is God. If you are elect of God, you were an eternal "dot" in the circle, an Attribute of God in Christ, a gene of Christ you receive in your soul by faith in the Word for your hour, which is your new birth.
Being omniscient the Lord knew the finite number of elect souls who are His Heritage in Christ, and in His eternal thinking He foresaw the glorified appearance of each one—the colour of your eyes, your stature and everything about you, "All the Father has given will come to Him, and no one can come to Him except the Father draws them" by the revelation of the Word for their hour. So when the last saint predestinated to Christ's end-time Bride has been baptized into the Body, the Gentile dispensation will end. The sleeping saints in theophany will put on glorified flesh, and after a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit in the manifestation of the Sons of God, we who are alive and remain will change in the atoms, our mortal spirit will be replaced by our theophany, and together we will be translated to meet our glorified Lord Jesus for the Wedding Supper of the Lamb "in the air".
The first creation and manifestation "in the beginning" was God Himself when He expressed the Logos, which was the Son of God. Having the appearance of Light, it was the Shekinah Jesus described when He lifted up his eyes to heaven and said, "Father, the hour is come; glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You: as You have given Him authority over all mankind, that He should give eternal Life to all You have given Him. Eternal Life is knowing You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent. I have glorified You on the earth, having accomplished the work which You gave Me to do; and now glorify Me, Father, with the glory which I had in Your own Presence before the world existed. I have manifested Your Name . . ." (John 17:1-6).
This explains what Jesus was saying when He told the Pharisees, "Before Abraham was, I Am" (John 8:58)? He is God expressed as the Logos, the Fire that spoke with Moses from the burning bush, the same Pillar of Fire and Cloud that have appeared and been photographed in our day. God is Light. Were you leaning over the banisters of heaven with eyes of Supernatural seeing, you would have witnessed a small Light forming. This was the Logos or complete thought of God, the sum of deity, beginning to express Himself in creation and time.
This was "the Beginning of the creation of God." Not the beginning of God's creation—which was "the heaven and the earth" (Genesis 1:1), and not the Man Jesus who would be born of a virgin billions of years later—but the beginning of God transforming Himself into creation. God was (Gk. 'kenos'), pouring or emptying Himself ex nihilo (not another substance) into creation. This is not the creation of a person other than God but the creation or initiating expression of Himself in visible, material form. That word "beginning" means originator, author, beginner, or living, personal principle of the whole creation, hence there is no principal (foundation) life of spirits outside the world order which is comprehended in Him. This Originator precedes the origin of the physical heavens and earth which came forth ex nihilo from Christ, the Logos.
Colossians 1:15-17: "Jesus Christ is the image, likeness or expression of the invisible God (possessing the divine nature and absolute moral excellence), the firstborn of all creation: for IN Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him: and He is Himself self-existent and therefore before all things, and IN Him all things were put together and are now held together." However, since man has rejected the Logos, Brother Branham declared, "The world is falling apart." Here Paul is NOT speaking of Jesus Christ the Man, but of Jesus Christ the Logos who would later manifest as the Man.
Christ the Logos and glory of God now took form in the theophany of a Man, metaphorically referred to as the Tree of Life, whose fellowship is promised to everyone who is born-again (Revelation 2:7; 22:14). Before the Fall He walked and communed with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. As Melchisedec He met Abraham, but this was not yet the Man Jesus, who would be born of a virgin nineteen hundred and fifty years thence. This personal pre-manifestation of Jesus who served communion to Abraham and received his tithes was the Father of the Son of God. Moses was not permitted to see His face, but he did see His back parts when He passed into the rock, and said, "It looked like a man" (Exodus 33:18-33; I Corinthians 10:4). In the fullness of time He would manifest as the virgin-born flesh form of Jesus of Nazareth, our Redeemer.
When the Angel Gabriel spoke with the Virgin Mary, he quickened her faith in the prophecies of Genesis 3:15 and Isaiah 7:14, and his Word was transformed into the cells that would become the flesh of Jesus (I Timothy 3:16). Now Paul speaks of Christ the Logos creating Himself in the beginning of the new creation of God-men "who owe their birth neither to human blood, nor to physical urge, nor to human design, but to God" (John 1:14). Colossians 1:18-19: "And He is the Head of the Body, the Church: who is the beginning (or source of Life to the Church, and the Principality of all things), the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that all divine fullness—the sum total of divine perfection, powers and attributes—should pervade and dwell permanently in Him as God's Temple".
Jesus is not a second, third or any person other than God Himself. He is the Logos or sum total of the Attributes of the invisible God expressed in the visible, material form of Man. He is the Creator manifest in flesh. He is the beginning of the creation of God in the sense that He caused the universe to begin to exist, for He is the Author of all things. Here is what Brother Branham said:
"The words are, "He is the BEGINNER or AUTHOR of the creation of God." Now we know for a surety that Jesus is God, very God. He is the Creator. John 1:3, "All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made."
He is the One of Whom it is said, Genesis 1:1, "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." Also it says in Exodus 20:11, "For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day." [Read Isaiah 44:24, "THUS SAITH THE LORD, Your Redeemer, He who formed you from the womb, I am the Lord, the Maker of all things; I alone stretched out the heavens and founded the earth by Myself" Ed]. See, there is no doubt that He is the Creator. He was the Creator of a FINISHED PHYSICAL CREATION [and there is no change in specie].
Surely we can now see what these words mean. To have any other interpretation would mean that God created God. How could God be created when He, Himself, is the Creator?
But now He is standing in the midst of the Church. As He stands there revealing who He is in this last age, He calls Himself the "Author of the creation of God." This is ANOTHER CREATION. This has to do with the Church. This is a special designation of Himself. He is the CREATOR of that church. The heavenly Bridegroom created his own Bride. As the Spirit of God, He came down and created in the Virgin Mary the cells from which His body was born. I want to repeat that. He created the very cells in the womb of Mary for that body. It was not enough for the Holy Spirit to simply give life to a human ovum supplied by Mary. That would have been sinful mankind producing a body. That would not have produced the "Last Adam." Of Him it was said "Lo a Body have You (Father) prepared for Me." God (not Mary) provided that body. Mary was the human incubator and she carried that Holy Child and brought Him to birth. It was a God-man. He was the Son of God. He was of the NEW creation. Man and God met and joined; He was the first of this new race. He is the head of this new race.
Colossians 1:18, "And He is the head of the Body, the Church: Who is the beginning, the first-born from the dead; that in all things He might have the pre-eminence."
II Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away, behold all things are become new."
There you can see that though man was of the OLD ORDER or creation, now in UNION WITH CHRIST, he has become the NEW CREATION of God.
Ephesians 2:10, "For we are His workmanship CREATED IN UNION WITH CHRIST JESUS unto good works."
Ephesians 4:24, "And that you put on the NEW MAN which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness."
This New Creation is not the old creation made over, or it could not be called a new creation. This is exactly what it says it is, "NEW CREATION." It is another creation, distinct from the old one. No longer is He dealing by ways of the flesh. That was how He dealt with Israel. He chose Abraham, and of Abraham's issue through the godly Isaac line. But now out of every kindred, tribe and nation He has purposed a new creation. He is the first of that creation. He was God created in the form of man. Now by His Spirit He is creating many Sons unto Himself: God the Creator, creating Himself a part of His creation. This is the true revelation of God. This was His purpose. This purpose took form through election. That is why He could look right down to the last age when all would be over and see Himself still in the midst of the church, as author of this New Creation of God. His Sovereign power brought it to pass. By His own decree He elected the members of this New Creation. He predestinated them to the adoption of children according to the good pleasure of His will. By His omniscience and omnipotence He brought it to pass. How else could He know that He would be standing in the midst of the church receiving glory from His brethren if He did not make sure? All things He knew, and all things He worked out according to what He knew in order that His purpose and good pleasure be brought to pass.
Ephesians 2:11 "In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of Him who works all things after the counsel of His own will." Hallelujah! Aren't you glad that you belong to Him!" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 336:1-4).
God thought of Himself as male and female—the feminine part is the soul of His elect that was created at the point of your natural birth. But since you were conceived in sin and born into a world under Satan's dominion, you are part of this world whose nature ruled your body and mortal spirit so that your soul lay dead in sin and trespassers until it was quickened by agreement with the Word for your age and reunited with its Husband and Redeemer (Psalm 51:5; Ephesians 2:1-3). Now it is bringing your spirit and body subject to the Word.
When God formed the first Adam his wife was in him too, so God put him to sleep and took a rib from his side and separated the feminish traits from his mortal spirit to make the by--product, Eve (Genesis 2:18-24; 5:1-2).
As God completed the old creation long before He formed Eve as a by-product or continuation of the creation of man, which fell, Jesus was the beginning and also the Beginner of the creation of God, the new creation of God-men (Revelation 3:14). As His Bride we are not another creation, but the continuation of the same "NEW CREATION" in Christ our Husband: a creation that cannot fall.
When God formed the last Adam, being that He was the Logos manifest in flesh His wife was in Him as Attributes of God's thoughts, and He saw male and female on Calvary. When the last Adam fell asleep, God took His wife from His side in the form of the Holy Spirit, which came back upon His elect from the day of Pentecost. The elect paid for her sins when she died in Christ on Calvary, and when He was raised for our justification, we were raised and quickened to Life as Attributes in Him (Romans 4:25; 5:15-21; 6:6-23; II Corinthians 5:14-17; Galatians 2:20; Colossians 3:4).
We have paid for our sins in Christ on Calvary "There is therefore now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has made us free from the law of sin and death" (Romans 8:1-2). We simply have to recognize our part of the Word and find our position in the Body. The Bride is a part of the Husband. You will only recognize you are His Bride if you can recognize your day and it's Message. You can't recognize the Word for a day gone by. That part of the Body is made up.
God had to become flesh and bone in order to fulfil His foreknowledge and the law of the Kinsman Redeemer because as the Spirit He could not identify with the sins of the world nor surrender eternal Life and die for us.
If you follow the diagrams you will see that Jesus came from the Attribute to theophany before He was flesh. As He was the Word before He was flesh, Jesus could not sin. We bypassed our theophany, angel or Word form Body, and came straight from the Attribute to flesh to be tested by sin and manifest the Word for our day, giving Him glory in overcoming. Jehovah was the Word made flesh in Jesus; we are the flesh becoming Word. Only in Christ is God a creation, and only His Word can be redeemed. Cain and his Serpent's seed hybrids—both natural and spiritual, cannot be redeemed as they are not His Word (Colossians 1:12-29).
Jesus is our pattern and type. After the sacrifice was washed in the Jordan, the Spirit anointed and dedicated Him as His Temple. What was He doing? He was redeeming that part of the earth of which He was made in the womb of Mary from His Word and the dust that she ate. Only in Christ is He a creation. Since Pentecost He has been redeeming the rest of His Attributes by three steps of grace—justification, sanctification, and the baptism with the Holy Spirit.
He redeems earth in the same way. It was justified and baptized by the Great Flood. It was sanctified by the Blood that flowed from His side, and will receive its baptism of Fire—both natural and Spiritual after the White Throne Judgment when it will be made into a new creation where the redeemed will dwell throughout eternity. Revelation 21:5, "And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. These words are true and faithful".
Jesus is the Beginner and the beginning of the new creation when He was born of the virgin; we who are born-again during the Pentecostal Feast are His Wife, the continuation of the SAME creation. In the new heavens and new earth God will be worshipped through eternity in the form of His glorified Family, Jesus Christ and His Bride, for we are New Jerusalem. "The city has no need of the sun or moon to shine upon it, for the glory of God and the Lamb is its Light. The nations of the saved will walk by its Light: and the kings of the earth will bring their splendour. Its gates remain open all day, and there is no night! Into it they will bring the glory and honour of the nations" (Revelation 21:23-26).
The diagram illustrates God's one eternal purpose, the creation of Himself in the flesh of His glorified Family. Ephesians 1:3-11, "How we praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every blessing in the Logos because we belong to Christ, even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless in His Presence. In love He has predestinated us to be recognized as His children through Jesus Christ according to the kind intent of His own will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He has bestowed on us in the beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood and the forgiveness of trespasses, to the measure of the riches of His grace; which He lavished on us, making known to us in all wisdom and insight the secret of His purpose, according to His kind intention which he proposed in Christ: a plan to be brought to completion in the fullness of times (Gk. 'kairos,' opportunity, or "once in a lifetime" times. See Newsletter 286) to unite everything in Christ, things in heaven, and things on earth."
"In Christ we too were made God's Heritage, being predestinated according to His purpose, who works out everything in agreement with the design of His own will, that we should be to the praise of His glory . . ." nl522.htm
