Osama bin Laden warns against 9/11 Mastermind's Execution
March 26, 2010 In a new audio tape broadcast by Al-Jazeera, a speaker believed to be bin Laden says the "White House has declared its wish to execute (Sheikh Mohammed and his co-accused). . . The day the United States takes such a decision, it would be also taking the decision that any of you falling into our hands will be executed," the speaker said, adding that US President Barack Obama was "still walking in the footsteps" of his predecessor, George W. Bush, by escalating the war in Afghanistan. . .
[Despite the fact CIA employee Mr. bin Laden he has been DEAD AND BURIED for years], the US-based IntelCenter monitoring service has said the tape "appears to be authentic". . . the US State Department said . . . the [deceased] al-Qaeda chief is "struggling to stay relevant".

Comment: BIG LIESthe technique of telling whoppers so huge via the media and school textbooks that no normal person could imagine anyone capable of such massive fraud as respects history, the Jewish issue, racial differences, WWII, the Holocaust, SARS, bird 'flu, swine 'flu, anthropogenic climate change, etc.,denounced and exposed by Hitler in Mein Kampf continues to be employed by the same 'hidden hand' that rules the (once) Christian West.
The Military KNOWS Israel/Mossad pulled off 9/11 Attacks
March 15, 2010 Dr. Alan Sabrosky (partly Jewish himself), former director of studies at the US Army War College says that the military brass now know that Israel and those traitors within our nation committed the 9/11 attack. "Now, technically speaking, we are at war with Israel because she is at war with us. Israel is out to destroy us. We just haven't figured it out yet. . . I have had long conversations over the past two weeks with contacts at the Army War College, at the Headquarters Marine Corps, and I have made it absolutely clear in both cases that it is 100% certain that 9/11 was a Mossad operation. Period. . ."
"9/11 has led directly to 60,000 Americans dead and wounded, God knows how many hundreds of thousands of people in other countries that we've killed or wounded or made homeless, and it's an on-going sore. It's not your sore from the USS Liberty, it's not my sore from Vietnam. Both of us have those, both of us care about. But this is an open wound. And what Americans need to understand is that they did it. They did it. And if they do understand that, Israel's going to disappear. . . from this Earth. . .
Well, I can tell you it's being read by some people in Headquarters Marine Corps and at the Army War College. . . and I said, 'Just look at thisjust look at this picture. I'm not going to give you an argumentjust look at it.' And they look at the film and without exception they come back and they say, 'They did it, didn't they.' I said, 'Yepthey did it'."

Comment: Jewish correspondent Gilad Atzmon ponders as Judea declares War on Obama in 2010 as she declared war on Hitler on March 24, 1933? Might Jewish hubris persuade the US and "all the young lions" of Ezekiel 38:13 to sit on their hands when Israel is invaded?
Have a Nice World War, Folks
March 25, 2010 Here is news of the Third World War. The United States has invaded Africa. US troops have entered Somalia, extending their war front from Afghanistan and Pakistan to Yemen and, now, the Horn of Africa. In preparation for an attack on Iran, American missiles have been placed in four Persian Gulf states, and "bunker-buster" bombs are said to be arriving at the US base on the British island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean.
In Gaza, the sick and abandoned population, mostly children, is being entombed behind underground American-supplied walls in order to reinforce a criminal siege. In Latin America, the Obama administration has secured seven bases in Colombia, from which to wage a war of attrition against the popular democracies in Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador and Paraguay. Meanwhile, the Secretary of "Defense" Robert Gates complains that "the general [European] public and the political class" are so opposed to war they are an "impediment" to peace. Remember this is the month of the March hare.
According to an American general, the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan is not so much a real war as a "war of perception." Thus, the recent "liberation of the city of Marja" from the Taliban's "command and control structure" was pure Hollywood. Marja is not a city; there was no Taliban command and control. The heroic liberators killed the usual civilians, poorest of the poor. Otherwise, it was fake. A war of perception is meant to provide fake news for the folks back home, to make a failed colonial adventure seem worthwhile and patriotic, as if "The Hurt Locker" were real, and parades of flag-wrapped coffins through the Wiltshire town of Wooten Basset were not a cynical propaganda exercise. . . As Blair demonstrated a bit too eagerly, the British elite love America because America allows it to barrack and bomb the natives and call itself a "partner." We should interrupt their fun.

Comment: Democracy, like terrorism, is a method, a means to an end, not an end in itself. Nobody is ruled by elections, anymore than any organization is run by terror or has terror as its ultimate goal. If this obvious point had been accepted in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, the absurdity of the idea of a "global war on terror" or "on terrorism" would have been self-evident, as would a global war to deliver "democracy" to far-away peoples.

ISLAM ON ALERT: Ashkenazi Jews want to destroy Masjid Al Aqsa
March 22, 2010 There is today in Jerusalem, however, a very large number of Ashkenazi Jews from Germany, Russia and Eastern Europe who want to totally take over the Temple Mount and destroy the Al Aqsa Masjid along with the Islamic golden dome over the Rock of Moriah. These Ashkenazi Jews are moving towards this end in order to build the Third Temple. Ashkenazi Jews are not genuine Hebrews and are not of the Abrahamic line. They have no historical rights to Jerusalem like the Palestinians and many Holy Land native Muslims. These non-Semitic, blue eyed, blonde haired and Yiddish speaking Zionists converted to Judaism around 700 AD for pure political convenience during the time they lived in their native land called Khazaria that was located in the Northern Caucasus along the Caspian Sea.
Before converting, the Ashkenazis followed a pagan phallic religion but today they mostly follow the much criticized and controversial [Babylonian] Talmud instead of the Torah related to Moses the Hebrew. The Talmud contains numerous religious laws that are bizarre and many are sexually deviant and some are right out evil. Some years ago Black leader Jesse Jackson, referring to the Talmud, said that Judaism was a "gutter religion."
The Khazarians after converting to Talmudic Judaism started expanding northward into Russia and westward into Poland, Germany and other parts of Europe. Because of their peculiar cultish ways, extreme loyalty only to themselves, love of money and because they are gifted practitioners of usury, they eventually dominated the economic and political systems of their host European nations. They sucked many of these nations dry in a similar way they are doing to the USA today. In Germany, however, they met up with a very formidable enemy, Adolf Hitler.
Adolf Hitler had the Ashkenazi Jews pegged and knew the harm they had done to the German native people. . . The Zionists actually wanted a base from which they could continue to do to other nations what they have been doing for centuries. Zionist Israel now serves as a military base from which they can expand and attempt to dominate Islamic countries and possibly eventually the world. . . . Plotting against Islamic holy sites in Jerusalem will result in immediate, sudden and extremely violent retaliation by the Islamic world [Zechariah 13:1-2]. Full story: themuslim.ca
Comment: This Muslim website seems unaware of the fact "The Voice of Aztlan" or Aztecs, is a Zionist 'front' to divide and conquer the USA, Judaeo-Catholicism a 'front' designed to destroy Christianity, and Islam a Judaeo-Roman Catholic device for dividing the Arabs against Israelites and Jews. The Hegelian dialectic is never idle and the Obama-Medvedev agreement on reducing nuclear stockpiles will draw mankind toward the "peace" prophesied in Ezekiel 38:8-16; Daniel 8:25; 2:45; and I Thessalonians 5:3, while the possible bankruptcy of Portugal, Spain, Greece, Ireland and Britain, Brazil and the USA betoken a 'false flag' operation more devastating than 9/11.
Disturbing findings of Toxic Uranium Levels in Gaza
March 22, 2010 Studies conducted by a group of Italian researchers have revealed the presence of dangerous levels of toxins in the bodies of Palestinian victims of Israeli bombings during operation Cast Lead in 2008-2009. The results of tests conducted on a sample of 15 dead and wounded victims of the war on Gaza, in addition to another sample of 95 citizens, showed the presence of 30 toxic components, notably high levels of uranium. A senior Ministry of Health official in Gaza, Medhat Abbas, confirmed . . . the study showed the presence of dangerous substances toxic to human embryos which distort and threaten infertility in men and women and affect genes. It was absorbed through the skin or the mouth during eating . . . the study of the biological samples proved that the Israelis used internationally proscribed weapons against the Palestinians. He warned that the large percentage of toxic uranium in the territory would pose a real threat to future generations. . . Full story: middleeastmonitor.org.uk

NATO rejects Russian Call for Afghan Poppy Spraying
March 24, 2010 Russia's anti-drugs czar, Victor Ivanov, met NATO ambassadors in Brussels and proposed that NATO troops be given a UN mandate and an obligation to eradicate Afghan opium crops, which were killing 30,000 Russians a year. But NATO spokesman James Appathurai said the drug problem had to be handled carefully to avoid alienating local people. . . Afghanistan is the world's biggest producer of poppies used to make opium, the key ingredient in the production of heroin . . . the Taliban had stock-piled so much opium that destroying existing crops would make little difference.
Ivanov said drugs were killing 100,000 Afghans a year and quoted UN figures showing that annual deaths from heroin overdoses in the more than 40 countries contributing to the NATO mission in Afghanistan were 50 times higher than their total military losses, which stand at nearly 1,600 in eight years.

GM unveils Future City Car in Shanghai
March 24, 2010 The Electric Networked Vehicle (EN-V) concepts debuting today from General Motors are designed for use in high-population areas. The city car of the future will seat two people, run on electric power and communicate with other vehicles to reach a destination faster while automatically avoiding traffic tie-ups and crashes. . . The concept from Holden in Australia is named Xiao, or Laugh, and is painted blue. The US concept, Miao, or Magic, is dark silver and used light-emitting diode accent lighting. The Europe concept, Jiao, or Pride, is red. Its design is influenced by bullet trains. All of the EN-V concepts are powered by a Segway (electric-scooter) powertrainbrushless direct-current wheel motors that provide propulsion and braking. GM says the EN-V can reach a top speed of 25 mph and travel 25 miles on a full charge of its lithium-ion battery pack. The battery is recharged by plugging in to household current.

The Bishops . . . are the Problem
March 23, 2010 Through the Stupak Amendment, the Catholic Bishops guaranteed passage of Obamacare through the House of Representatives. . . They were playing the double-game, acting as if the legislation had to be toughened-up in order to be more pro-life, while insisting it be expanded to cover more immigrants. . . The health care debate, with either side citing this or that Catholic group, has proven that the Catholic Church is exercising far too much influence over the national affairs of the United States. If Marxism is coming to America, it has a Catholic imprint . . .
The Catholic Church is quickly moving ahead to pass a bill to grant amnesty to illegal aliens. It is significant that on Sunday, as national health care legislation was passing the House, the Catholic Bishops were promoting a rally on the National Mall in Washington, DC to force congressional passage of "comprehensive immigration reform." The rally was preceded by a Mass in support of immigrants. . .
One of the key sponsors of the pro-amnesty rally was the Catholic Legal Immigration Network, an organization established by the Bishops which has received at least $530,000 from the Open Society Institute [George Soros/Rothschild] . . . demonstrators and the assorted Marxists who were there passing out their Spanish-language pro-communist literature. . . carried many different signs, one of them saying, "Catholic Campaign for Immigration Reform," with a reference to "Justice for Immigrants" in smaller letters. The "Justice for Immigrants" project is officially sponsored by the Catholic Bishops . . .

Chief Exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth says Devil is in the Vatican
March 11, 2010 Vatican Sex abuse scandals in the Roman Catholic Church are proof that "the Devil is at work inside the Vatican," according to the Holy See's chief exorcist Don Gabriele Amorth.
Father Gabriele Amorth, 85, who has been the Vatican's chief exorcist for 25 years and says he has dealt with 70,000 cases of demonic possession, said that the consequences of satanic infiltration included power struggles at the Vatican as well as "cardinals who do not believe in Jesus, and bishops who are linked to the Demon".
He added: "When one speaks of 'the smoke of Satan' [a phrase coined by Pope Paul VI in 1972] in the holy rooms, it is all trueincluding these latest stories of violence and paedophilia". . . Father Amorth, who has just published "Memoirs of an Exorcist". . . is the president of honour of the Association of Exorcists. Full story: timesonline.co.uk
This morning we received this email from a Brother: "I am a Sunday school teacher at Fort Lauderdale and have been reading "The Genesis Record" by Henry Morris and came across your website while verifying some of his information. I do want to state that I agree with the historical accuracy of Genesis and am shocked to see how the evolution discussion completely ignores the effects a great flood would have had on our planet in the time of Noah. I came across your web page discussing the discovery of giant human skeletons and have been sharing it with many including my students. . . With the Smithsonian putting on a human skeleton display reflecting six billion years of evolution, these giant skeletons would certainly raise many questions, to say the least".
Perhaps this is why the Smithsonian Institute is featuring miniature human skeletons on which the Bible is silent. While the exhibits displayed on these web pages are certainly very interesting, the explanations are predicated on the evolution of species which is decidedly unscriptural, unscientific propaganda.
The First Law of Thermodynamics, an expression of the principle of conservation of energy, states that energy can be transformed (changed from one form to another), but can neither be created nor destroyed.
The Second Law of Thermodynamics is a straightforward law of physics with the consequence that, in a closed system, you cannot finish any real physical process with as much useful energy as you had to start withsome is always wasted. Thus a perpetual motion machine is impossible, and nature tends to entropy, disorder and randomness, chaos or devolution, not evolution.
It is surprising that mixing entropy and biology still fosters confusion. The relevant concepts from physics pertaining to the second law of thermodynamics are at least one hundred years old. The confusion can be eradicated if we distinguish thermodynamic from logical entropy, and admit that Earth's biological system is open to organizing input from outside.
Logic is the science of reasoning defensible argument on the ground of consistency without regard to the primordial law of faith in God's unchanging, creative Word. "The Logos existed when creation initiated time, for the Logos was the beginning of God expressing Himself in creation, and the Logos was with God [as His eternal thoughts], and the Logos was God, and the Logos created the heavens and the earth" (John 1:1; Revelation 3:14; Colossians 1:15-20; Genesis 1:1).
So long as creation was under preeminence to the Logos, like the saint whose life is a written epistle of the Absolute of the present Truthwhat Jesus is doing nowit was a "closed system" totally immune "to organizing input from outside," and from any form of hurt, disappointment, sickness, or death (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7; Genesis 2:15-17). There was no entropy or loss of energy producing disorder, decay and death, because the Logos is the eternal Almighty Creator God. The ingress of sin or unbelief in the revealed Logos, interrupted the Absolute of the "closed system" of God's unchanging Word with one word, "surely," perverting the constant K of eternal Life to the variable v of death in a system open to inputs from the father of lies (Genesis 3:4; John 8:44).
Physicists declare it is only the overall entropy of a complete, or "closed system" that must increase when spontaneous change occurs. The Logos or Word of God can never change; however its meaning can be misrepresented by reasoning or logic which is sin (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8). In the case of spontaneously interacting sub-systems of a "closed system," some may gain entropy, while others may lose entropy. For example, a fundamental axiom of thermodynamics is that when heat flows from subsystem A to subsystem B, the entropy of A decreases and the entropy of B increases. The statement that an increase in order can only occur as the result of a directional mechanism, program, or code is misleading. Any process that can be demonstrated to take place with an increase in order/decrease in entropy is arbitrarily deemed to be the consequence of an undefined "directional mechanism."
For those who are in Christ, our "directional mechanism" is the Logos, however it is definitely defined by faith since "The secret things belong to the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the Words of this law" (Deuteronomy 29:29). God's thoughts which He expressed as the Logos (we call "the Word" for a thought expressed is a word), are eternal. If you can see this, you will see many things. God is unchangeable in both essence and behavior. God is infinite in His abilities so therefore He as God must be omniscient. If He is omniscient, then He is not now learning, nor is He taking counsel even with Himself, nor is He at any time adding to His knowledge. If He can add to His knowledge, then He is not omniscient. The best we could say is that sometime He will be. But that is not Scriptural.
He IS omniscient. He has never had a new thought about anything because all His thoughts He has always had and always will have, and knows the end from the beginning because He is God. THUS THE THOUGHTS OF GOD ARE ETERNAL. THEY ARE REAL. They are not simply like a man with a blueprint he has drawn up and which one day will be translated into substance and form, but they are already real and eternal, and part of God. Ephesians 1:4 says, "He has chosen us IN HIM (Jesus) before the foundation of the world." That means that we were right there WITH Him in the mind and thoughts of God before the foundation of the world. That gives an ETERNAL quality to the elect (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 149:3 150:3).
With the physics fresh in your mind it should be clear from the first and second laws of thermodynamics that the HOAX of global warming, anthropogenic climate change and alleged excess of life-giving CO2 in the atmosphere is a scheme for global genocide. Matter can be transformed to produce heat to generate energy to do work and create a productive economy, bringing wealth, enhancing living standards and well-being; but while the matter and heat change form, neither can be created nor destroyed, and without industry man will perish. Do you now see how governments, educators and the media are a womb of demons impregnated by this SCAM of international banksters' intent upon world depopulation for global hegemony by deindustrialization and a return to Dark Ages technology with the surviving ten percent of humanity serfs under Lucifer's one world government? As expressed in the Georgia Guidestones to an "age of reason".
The evolution of bodily forms from the elements contradicts the laws of physics. More absurd is the claim that the spirit of mortal life with its genius of thought and speech, and man's immortal soul with its capacity for faith, evolved from inert minerals. Our Brother has confronted the enemy of God and man. "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in heavenly places. But [having] studied to show himself approved by God, a workman who need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth, he stands behind the shield of faith, holding the sword of the Spirit, which is the revealed Word of Godshunning profane and vain babblings which will increase to more ungodliness" (II Timothy 2:15-16; Ephesians 6:11-18).
Satan, "prince of the power of the air, the spirit now working in the children of disobedience, is the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty" (Ephesians 2:2; Ezekiel 28:12), who confronts us in alien-controlled governments, the long apostate world church system trading on the past reputation of genuine saints, unjust Talmudic legal systems, foundations of scholarship and respected bodies like the Smithsonian Institute that have morphed into purveyors of mind-manipulating propaganda. Our one hope and strength is to hold to God's unchanging Hand, not engaging debate but after the example of our Lord when contending with the Devil: parry and thrust by the Sword of the Spirit "It is written"!
Christ's mediation in the office of Son of God ceased in 1963 before the revelation of the Seven Seals, He then resumed the prophetic office of Son of man, becoming King of kings and judge (John 5:27; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 4:10; 10:1-7). We now have the perfect interpretation of the Word, and the sleeping saints are waiting upon us to grow to maturity in the "unity of the faith . . . for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation" (Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:47-56).
Brother Branham said, "Some people gets the wrong impression of what the anointing is. Did you ever think of that? When was the greatest anointing ever give to anyone, and what did they do when they had the anointing? The greatest anointing that was ever give to anyone was Jesus Christ. We have the Spirit by measure. He had it without measure.
And one day He entered into the temple, and picked up the Scroll, and read, "The Spirit of God is upon Me, for He has anointed Me to preach the acceptable year, to bind up the broken hearts, to heal the sick, give sight to the blind." And now, we would think if such anointing was on Him, that'd been prophesied eight hundred years before that it would come, and here He was with that type of anointing, the full blessing and anointing of the Lord upon Him, we would want to run all over the building, scream and holler. But the Bible said, "He laid down the Scroll, and set downs and precious Words proceeded from His mouth."
"That's what He done under the anointing. The anointing is not emotions. The anointing is supreme power in control, like knowing exactly what and how (See?), and that's what's here" (Why are People so Tossed About, p. 37:294-296). The end-time evangelism is not Matthew 28:19, "Go and teach all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost [which is of course, Lord Jesus Christ]," but Revelation 18:4 and Matthew 25:6, "Come out of Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches and be filled with the Spirit." Having taken the open Book from the hand of the Angel of the Lord standing in judgment on Rome, the beast from the sea, and upon her the (once) Protestant United States, the beast of the earth, we are to become one with the Message of the Book and re-present the end time Message (Revelation 10:1-7; 13).
When Jesus was crucified His mortal spirit broke up and His body was entombed, but He, His soul, went to sheol, where He preached to the souls imprisoned by death, vindicating the faith of the saints in paradise, and condemning the lost in torment across the chasm (I Peter 3:18-19). On the third day He returned to His glorified body, ascended and cleansed the heavenly temple of the sins of 4,000 years, descended to the abode of the dead, and making the saints captives of Life they entered His resurrection in glorified bodies. Although God had ceased dealing with Israel as a nation His ministry continued, but it was a ministry of condemnation to those who had rejected grace and were lost. Christ is our type, and since the denominations refused the Message of the vindicated prophet whose ministry revealed "Jesus Christ, the same, yesterday, and today, and forever" by the same signs and miracles that identified Him in the days of His flesh our ministry is mainly to the irreconcilably lost (Luke 17:28-30; Hebrews 4:12; 13:8; Genesis 18). When grace ends at the close of our dispensation, those not born-again by this Message will remain in their spiritual state until the judgment (Daniel 12:10; Revelation 22:10-14).
We don't need to prove anything to man or to the Devil. We have only to show ourselves approved of God by coming into the unity of the faith. God told Paul, "My grace is sufficient for you: for My strength is made perfect in your weakness" (II Corinthians 12:9). We need to know the mind of the Lord, apply His Word by the prayer of faith, and stand.
The anointing is supreme power in control. Before we can speak the Word, which Brother Branham called the 'third pull' we must sanctify our mortal spirit by bringing it under obedience to the revealed Word in our soul. In turn our mortal spirit will bring our body subject. We must take mastery over the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, the pride of life, loving the world and the things of the world above the things of God, and besetting sins such as temper, impatience, or exceeding the speed limit. "These little foxes spoil the vine," bring us under condemnation and cripple faith so that we are not fit to confront Satan, who has a claim and will make a mockery of us.
Matthew 17:14-22, "Jesus and His disciples were confronted by a huge crowd, and a man came and knelt before Jesus and said, Lord, have mercy on my son: he is an epileptic and suffers terribly, for he often falls into the fire or into the water. I brought him to Your disciples, but they had no power to cure him. Jesus replied, O faithless and perverse generation, how long am I to be with you? How long am I to put up with you? Bring him here to Me. And Jesus rebuked the demon and it came out of him: and the child was cured instantly.
Afterwards the disciples came to Jesus privately, and said, Why were we not able to cast him out? And Jesus said, Because of your little faith: for I assure you, If you have [pure] faith [unmixed with unbelief] as a grain of mustard seed [which though tiny will not hybrid], you shall say to this mountain, Move from here to there, and it shall move; and nothing will be impossible for you. But this kind of demon will not go out except by prayer and fasting".
Jesus was telling His disciples, You are insufficiently sanctified, such that you have yielded Satan a measure of dominion over your own flesh and mortal spirit whereby you do not have the authority to command him by the Word of the Lord. And this is where we fail when we allow the lukewarm lackadaisical spirit of Laodicea to rule over us in place of the strictness of God's unchanging Word, and every one (Matthew 4:4).
In the New Testament, persons under the power of a demon were afflicted with severe physical or mental distress: paralysis, blindness, deafness, loss of speech, epilepsy, melancholy, and insanity, being oppressed and held in possession by demons who not only afflicted them with ills, but dethroned their reason and took over their mental faculties so that they expressed the mind and consciousness of the indwelling demons and their cure required their expulsion. Thus when Jesus asked the demoniac his name, "He answered, my name is Legion: for we are many" (Mark 5:1-20).
Jesus commissioned His Church to cast out demons so they could receive the healing He accomplished on Calvary "with His stripes we are healed" (Mark 16:17; Isaiah 53:5). If you are not being healed you may be harbouring a spirit that is preventing you from getting right with the Lord so that your conscience is not free, perhaps because of some hidden habit, resentment or root of bitterness. . . "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us".
In a little revision, this diagram represents the human unit consisting of a body, mortal spirit and soul. God gave us five senses of the bodysight, hearing, taste, touch and smell; five senses of the spiritconscience, memory, imagination, reasoning and affection by which to contact the material world, and one sense of the soul to contact the spirit worldfaith or unbeliefdepending upon our decision to receive or disbelieve He who is the Word: "faith comes by hearing, and understanding by the revealed Word of God" (Romans 10:17). Christians are the Temple of the Holy Spirit of which Solomon's temple is our type. In approaching the Lord the penitent Israelite presented his sacrifice in the outer court. The body is the outer court of our temple where we offer our lives a sacrifice of praise. We "die daily . . . and through the Spirit mortify the deeds of the body . . . to present our bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is our reasonable service" (I Corinthians 15:31; Romans 8:13; 12:1). Here in the outer court of our flesh the Token of the Life of Christ is on display, a "written epistle, known and read by all men . . . written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart" (II Corinthians 3:3). As the Israelite's lamb was washed before it was offered, "we are symbolically buried in union with Christ and His death, signifying that as Christ rose from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too should walk in newness of Life, for if we have been united with Him in death we shall also rise in the likeness of His resurrection. Knowing that our old self was crucified with Him, so that the power of the sin-controlled body might be done away, and we [our soul] no longer enslaved to sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. If we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him: knowing that Christ once risen from the dead will never die again; death has no more dominion over Him. The death He died, He died once for all to sin: but the Life He lives, He lives to God. Likewise you too must reckon yourself dead to sin, but alive to God in Jesus Christ."
"Do not let sin reign in your mortal body, to have you yield to its passions, neither offer the members of your body as instruments of wickedness: but yield yourselves to God as men who have been brought from death to Life, and your members to God as instruments of righteousness" (Romans 6:4-13; II Corinthians 5:14-17).
Like Israel's high priest, we enter the presence of God through three steps of maturity in the faith, first subduing and taking dominion over the world, the outer court of clay that is our body (Genesis 1:28). We call this justification by grace through faith, with repentance and baptism in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of past sins.
The second step is sanctification by faith in the shed Blood of Christ. As blood cleanses impurities from your body, the Blood of Christ cleanses impurities from His Body, the Church. God's only cleansing stream is the Blood of Jesus Christ because the Life is in the Blood, and that Life is His Word which we receive by faith or understanding. Sin is unbelief in God's revealed Word. Light on the Word scatters darkness, cleanses the mortal spirit of your mind for holiness, and leaves sin no hiding place. Sanctification separates us from the things of the world unto holy living pleasing to Him.
In Israel, fresh, running water and the ashes of a heifer, a type of Christ crucified without the camp, was a separation from sin and uncleanliness (Numbers 19:9-10). Hebrews 9:13-14, "And if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who were unclean, sanctified their flesh from sin, how much more surely shall the Blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself a flawless sacrifice to God purify your conscience from dead works to serve the living God"? Israel's waters of separation type revelation, which brings sin to Light and exposes unseemly conduct or attitudes. Quickly we repent and that newfound measure of faith cleanses and restores the holy place of our mind, represented by the sanctuary of Solomon's temple.
The third step is the baptism with the Holy Spirit and Fire or new birth that takes us beyond the rivern veil and enthrones Christ in the holy of holies of our heart. Like the coal of Fire that cleansed Isaiah's lips, the Fire of the Spirit kills the worldly nature ruling over you, quickening you, your soul, to eternal Life through a clear revelation of the present Truthwhat Jesus is doing now. But in order to be born-again we must be walking in the Light God is manifesting now, because He is only writing epistles of the present Truth (I John 1:7; II Peter 1:12; II Corinthians 3:2). We had eggs for breakfast, and sandwiches for lunch, but this is the evening time, and we must feed our soul on the seven-course meal of God's evening-time Light (Zechariah 14:7; Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; 24:27; Luke 17:28-30; Revelation 10:4-7).
We must understand and learn from the shadows and types of Noah, Moses and the Old Testament saints, however, their Messages are fulfilled; our salvation and deliverance lie not in a ship or through desert sands. And although the Message of Justification by grace through faith is the foundation upon which Christ is building His Church, the Sardis Church Age ended in 1750; what conceived the Lutheran, Anglican and Presbyterian saints cannot quicken the elect to eternal Life in this day. Christ added the great truths of John Wesley's Message of Sanctification or scriptural holiness to Luther's Message, bringing the Methodists and Baptists to eternal Life in the Philadelphian Church Age which ended in 1906. Then He added the revelation of Hebrews 13:8 (Mark 16:16-18) to baptize the Pentecostal saints in the Laodicean Church Age which ended in 1963. We must recognize our day and its Message, and see that part of the Word living through us, not try to impersonate Christ's finished Body-Word. All Seven Church Ages are over. We live in the holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the antitype of Israel's Pentecostal feast (Leviticus 23:15-21), and until we recognize our day and become written epistles of its Message, we cannot be born-again and will be cast into the soon-coming tribulation.
Demons are working openly in the religious realm todaymore so than in the days when Yahwism, the faith of Moses and the prophets, was perverted to its antithesis, Pharisaism, known as Judaism todaymore so than when the same people perverted Christianity to polytheistic Judaeo-Roman Catholicism at the First Nicaea Council in AD325. More so in this day in which the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church is about to force its religion universally by the once Protestant United States of America, which is the image to Imperial Rome (Revelation 13:11-18).
Demons are working not only in the physical realm with disease and psychological disorders, they are working in the religious realm with teachings so close they would deceive the very elected if it were possible. And as Jannes and Jambres impersonated Moses, these impersonate the Message and ministry of Brother Branham. Cain, Esau and Judas were all religious men. The pope and the Orthodox patriarchs, Billy Graham, Oral Roberts and the Dalai Lama are all religious men.
Satan prince of demons is a calumniator, false accuser, slanderer and author of evil, persecuting good men, estranging mankind from God and enticing them to sin, afflicting them with diseases by means of demons who take possession of their bodies at his bidding, and deceiving them by dislocating and quoting God's Word out of context. He incites apostasy from God by quoting the WORD: the Rhema not the Logos, his churches care for orphans, the elderly and infirm. They run schools, hospitals and other "good works" just like the government, Buddhists and Communists in Hong Kong, or the Jews' Hamas in Lebanon and Palestine, however the church is presuming or venturing without authority (Deuteronomy 18:20) when it embarks on activities outside the Lord's commission, which is to preach the present Truth of the Gospel He will confirm with signs and wonders, and baptize in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. And how many churches baptize?
Proverbs 3:5, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not to your own understanding." Logic is the science of reasoning defensible argument on the ground of consistency without regard to the primordial law of faith in God's unchanging, creative Word. Oh, it is only reasonable that women should cut their hair and wear clothes that pertain to a man. I'm only a social drinker; the prophet said we should not have a television in the house, but surely . . . Just take God at His Word. When God told Moses to take off his shoes, Moses didn't say, I'll just remove my hat. God said shoes!
Are you listening to enticing spirits, serving Satan instead of worshipping God? Worship is not singing the Doxology and attending church. Worship is living life with the Token on display as a sacrifice of praise. And you cannot rid yourself of enticing spirits without adhering to the strict Word of God whereby you are sanctified so that the Devil cannot come near you. Brother Branham said, Hold the Token over your house and they will be "saved." He did not say they would be born-again, but that they will be "saved," because so long as you keep them sanctified under the ambiance of God's Presence of God in you, their names will remain in the Book of Life. Every soul in Adam's race is born "saved" from their mother's womb because from the foundation of the world their names were written in the Book of Life, which is the genealogy of Adam, and so long as their name remains in that Book, be they Buddhist, Baptist, Muslim, Hindu, or worshippers of sticks and stones, they will be granted into eternal Life by the saints at the White Throne Judgment.
Christ means Messiah or "anointed One" and as "messiahettes" Christians share His anointing by measure. His anointing is supreme power in control and if we are to exercise the resurrection power promised in Ephesians 1:15-20, speak the Word in the manifestation of the Sons of God and change in the atoms (Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:51), we must bring our body and mortal spirit subject to the Word right now in order to come under preeminence to the Word as Jesus was under preeminence (John 5:19-20; 14:12, 20). Then Satan and his demons will be unable to hinder us.
"When questioned in the palace of the high priest Caiaphas concerning His disciples and His doctrine, Jesus answered, I spoke openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, where the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing" (John 18:19-20). The Gospel in the stars set out God's plan for all to see so man is without excuse; Enoch constructed the Bible in Stone, and the printing press has placed the same Bible in paper and ink in every home. Satan's plans are hidden in plain sight on the Georgia Guidestones erected by men inspired by enticing spirits, and also in paper and ink in the remarkably prescient Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion (Ezekiel 28:15):
1. It is indispensable for our purpose that wars, so far as possible, should not result in territorial gains [this is UN policy, which is why the US could not win their war of aggression in Vietnam, and why General MacArthur was sacked when he fought to win]: war will thus be brought on to the economic ground, where the nations will not fail to perceive in the assistance we give the strength of our predominance, and this state of things will put both sides at the mercy of our international agentur; which possesses millions of eyes ever on the watch and unhampered by any limitations whatsoever. Our international rights will then wipe out national rights, in the proper sense of right, and will rule the nations precisely as the civil law of States rules the relations of their subjects among themselves. [Jesus said, "You are of your father the Devil, and his desires [world hegemony] you will fulfill. He was a murderer from the beginning, and a hater of truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies he speaks according to his own nature: for he is a liar and the father of lies" (John 8:44)].
2. The administrators, whom we shall choose [through the City of London's CFR, and other Chatham House groups] from among the public, with strict regard to their capacities for servile obedience, will not be persons trained in the arts of government, and will therefore easily become pawns in our game in the hands of men of learning and genius who will be their advisers, specialists bred and reared from early childhood to rule the affairs of the whole world. As is well known to you, these specialists of ours have been drawing to fit them for rule the information they need from our political plans from the lessons of history, from observations made of the events of every moment as it passes. The Goyim are not guided by practical use of unprejudiced historical observation, but by theoretical routine without any critical regard for consequent results. We need not, therefore, take any account of themlet them amuse themselves until the hour strikes, or live on hopes of new forms of enterprising pastime, or on the memories of all they have enjoyed. [Patriot, Tea Party, Social Credit and third party political organizers; well-meaning people praying "God bless America"unaware that she rejected her last chance for national revival in 1956/7; nominal Christians invoking II Chronicles 7:14 when mediation is over and Christ has been calling the wise and foolish virgin out from Rome and her harlot daughter churches for 47 years; nominal Christians seek reforms when the Reformation ended in 1963, all overcome by "a strong delusion to believe falsehood" (II Thessalonians 2:11)]. For them let that play the principal part which we have persuaded them to accept as the dictates of science (theory). It is with this object in view that we are constantly, by means of our press, arousing a blind confidence in these theories. [Thus opportunists and egomaniacs devoid of the Spirit fell for the HOAX and SCAM of anthropogenic climate change, Peak Oil, globalization, free trade, WMD, Cold War, Wars on Drugs, Poverty, Terror, the UN, holocaust, GM crops, Swine 'flu, vaccination, trinity, feminism, multiculturalism, fractional reserve banking, etc]. The intellectuals of the Goyim will puff themselves up with their knowledges and without any logical verification of them will put into effect all the information available from science, which our agentur specialists have cunningly pieced together for the purpose of educating their minds in the direction we want.
3. Do not suppose for a moment that these statements are empty words: think carefully of the successes we arranged for Darwinism (Evolution), Marxism (Communism), Nietzsche-ism (Socialism). To us Jews, at any rate, it should be plain to see what a disintegrating importance these directives have had upon the minds of the Goyim.
4. It is indispensable for us to take account of the thoughts, characters, tendencies of the nations in order to avoid making slips in the political and in the direction of administrative affairs. [They run the opinion polls]. The triumph of our system of which the component parts of the machinery may be variously disposed according to the temperament of the peoples met on our way, will fail of success if the practical application of it be not based upon a summing up of the lessons of the past in the light of the present. [They write the history. "Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it" (George Santayana). "He who controls the present controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future" (George Orwell). "History will be kind to me for I intend to write it" (Sir Winston Churchill). God's administration is under a godly king. One man born and raised to be king (Deuteronomy 17:15; Matthew 12:29) is not easily corrupted like party political amateurs pre-selected for us by the 'hidden hand' that controls servile 'lawmakers' in our Hegelian sham democracies who do not respect or 're-present' the will of their electors].
5. In the hands of the States of to-day there is a great force that creates the movement of thought in the people, and that is the Press. The part played by the Press is to keep pointing out requirements supposed to be indispensable, to give voice to the complaints of the people, to express and to create discontent. It is in the Press that the triumph of freedom of speech finds its incarnation. But the Goyim States have not known how to make use of this force; and it has fallen into our hands. Through the Press we have gained the power to influence while remaining ourselves in the shade; thanks to the Press we have got the GOLD in our hands, notwithstanding that we have had to gather it out of the oceans of blood and tears. But it has paid us, though we have sacrificed many of our people. Each victim on our side is worth in the sight of God a thousand Goyim (Protocol 2:3-5).
Enticing spirits. Only the gold tried in the fire shall endure (I Peter 1:7). Brother Branham said, "The elect will not only be kept, but as this move [of denominational unity and one world government] becomes the "IMAGE ERECTED TO THE BEAST," the saints will be gone in the rapture . . . the harlot's daughters are all but gone back to her. In the meantime, Rome has acquired nearly all the supplies of gold. The Jews have the bonds and all the paper. At the right time, the harlot will destroy the present day money system by calling in all the paper, and demanding gold. With no gold, the system falls. The Jews will be trapped and come into the alliance, and the harlot church will take over the whole world" (An exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 314:1; Protocol 20:22).
The Treaty of Paris of 1763 designated King George III "Arch-Treasurer and Prince Elector of the Holy Roman Empire." And according to Encyclopedia Judaica Rothschilds bear the title "Guardians of the Vatican Treasury." The Vatican Treasury, of course, holds the imperial wealth of Rome. Imperial wealth grows in proportion to its victories in waras the Jesuit empowerment Regimini militantis ecclesiae implies, the Church-at-War is more necessary than the Church-at-Peace. According to H. Russell Robinson's illustrated "Armour of Imperial Rome," Caesarean soldiers protect themselves in battle with shields painted red. Since the soldiery is the State's most valuable resource (the Council of Trent admitted this in preferring the Jesuits to all other religious orders), it is easy to understand why the red shield was identified with the very life of the Church. Hence, the appropriateness of the name Rothschild, German for "red shield." The appointment of Rothschild gave the black papacy absolute financial privacy and secrecy. Who would ever search a family of orthodox Jews for the key to the wealth of the Roman Catholic Church? I believe this appointment explains why the House of Rothschild is famous for helping nations go to war. It is fascinating that, as Meyer Rothschild's sons grew into the family business, the firm took on the title Meyer Amschel Rothschild und Sohne, which gives us the notariqon MARS. Isn't Mars the Roman God of War, whose heavenly manifestation is "the red planet"? There is powerful cabalah here, and there's hardly an acre of inhabitable earth that hasn't been affected by it in some way" (Tupper Saussy, Rulers of Evil. p. 160-161; Newsletter 171).
"Now remember, it was Imperial Pagan Rome that fell by the sword. But she was healed of her death stroke when she joined to the nominal Christian church of Rome and incorporated paganism and Christianity, and thereby became the Holy Roman Empire which was to endure until Jesus came and destroyed her [Revelation 13:3]. But Rome is not going it alone. Her daughters are right with her and she will take over absolute authority by the [Rockefeller] World Council of Churches."
"This may seem farfetched to some but actually it is very plain for all to see because right now the churches are controlling politics and at the opportune time will manifest exactly how great is that control. This ecumenical move will end up with Rome at the head even though the people did not envision it that way. This is so because in Revelation 17:3-6 it states that the whore, Mystery Babylon is seated on the beast. She is controlling the last or fourth empire. This Roman Church is doing that. With the world church system under her Rome will be controlling, and this image (church system) will be obedient to Rome because Rome controls the gold of the world."
"Thus all the people have to belong to the world church system or be at the mercy of the elements for they cannot buy or sell without the mark of the beast in the hand or head. This mark in the head means that they will have to take the doctrine of the world church system which is trinitarianism, etc., and the mark in the hand which means to do the will of the world church. With this great power the church systems will persecute the true Bride. This image will try to keep the Bride from preaching and teaching, etc. Her ministers will be forbidden to give comfort and truth to the people who need it. But before the antichrist (in person) takes over this complete world system of churches the true church will be taken away from this world to be with the Lord. God will catch away His Bride for the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb" (ibid, p. 376:1).
"If vicar of Christ means 'instead of Christ' or 'in place of' or 'on behalf of God' then the pope was calling himself the Holy Ghost, or deposing the Holy Ghost, acting for Him. That was the Judas spirit in him doing that. See how he conqueredgoing forth conquering and to conquer. Christ did not do that. The only ones that came to Him were already predestinated by the Father. And so on and on went that spirit and one day it will become truly incarnate in a man who will head up the World Council of Churches, just as we have been saying. And by his gold (remember Judas held the bag) he will control the whole world, and that antichrist system will own everything and try to control everybody. But Jesus will come back and destroy them all with the brightness of His Coming. And their end will be the lake of fire" (ibid, p. 378:1).
The Spirit that called the Lutheran, Anglican, Congregational, Presbyterian and Moravian congregations out from Rome, also called Baptists, Methodists, Nazarenes and Pilgrim Holiness out from them, separated Pentecostals from Wesleyans, and is today calling the wise and foolish virgin out from the world church system. God is omniscient, not double-minded, and cannot change His mind. That Judas spirit is reuniting the denominations for the second crucifixion of the Word (Amos 3:3; Hebrews 6:4-8). Enticing spirits have people under a strong delusion to believe the same lie Satan told Eve, "God loves you all . . . He loves the Baptists, Catholics, Muslims and Jews . . . surely He won't cast you into the lake of Fire."
But II Thessalonians 2:7-12 states emphatically, "The mystery of iniquity is already at work: only the Holy Spirit who now restrains will impede Satan's power until He departs earth in the resurrection and translation of His Bride. Then that lawless one [who was exposed in the Revelation of the Seven Seals] will be revealed [publicly at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, when Satan is cast down to earth], whom the Lord will consume with the Spirit of His mouth, [the Sword of the Spirit or Word (Revelation 19:15-21)] and destroy with the brightness of His Coming": the 'epiphaneia' of His 'parousia' (II Thessalonians 2:8; I Timothy 6:14; II Timothy 4:1, 8; Titus 2:13). Jesus will not physically ride from heaven on a white horse followed by the glorified saints to engage Satan in battle, Revelation 19 is a metaphor.
"The 'parousia' coming of that man of sin, [the incarnate last pope (Revelation 17:11)], will be with all power and signs and lying wonders after the working of Satan [uniting religions (Revelation 13:14)], and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness [deceiving] those who are to perish [by his unbelief in the revealed Word] because they did not receive the ['agape'] love of the Truth [or faith] that they might be [sanctified and retain their names on the Book of Life John 17:17) and be] saved." Christ is the Truth, and Christ is the Word (John 14:6; 18:37; 1:1-2, 14), but they prefer the unrighteousness of a creed. They love the historical Jesus, but despise the revealed Word because it brings them under condemnation, and Christ the Word will not reciprocate carnal 'phileo' love devoid of faith. God's love is ELECTIVE, it is His ['agape'] love for His elect that is the definitely defined "directional mechanism" of which we spoke, not man's love for Him. "For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of Him that calls. He foretold Rebecca, The elder shall serve the younger. As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated" (Malachi 1:2-3; Romans 9:11-13). The pope and denominational ministers certainly love God, as did Caiaphas and the ministers who had Jesus crucified, but because their love was carnal and without faith He could not love them. "And because of this, God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe the same lie he told Eve: that they all might be damned who believed falsehood, and enjoyed their sins [the carnal logic of reasoning defensible argument on the ground of consistency with their man made dogma]".
The revelation of the Seven Seals was the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16, which is the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6 confirmed by the heavenly "Voice" of Revelation 18:4. This is God's final call before the end of the Gentile dispensation. The Laodicean Church Age put Christ without the camp when they rejected "the revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show to His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it in Old Testament symbols by His angel William Branham to His servant John" (Revelation 3:20; 1:1; 22:6-12). Jesus said, "You say, I am materially rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing. However, you are wretched, and miserable, spiritually bankrupt, blind to the revealed Word, naked of the Blood, and know it not" because you have been overcome by enticing spirits. nl626.htm
