Jewnited States funded and armed Al-CIA-da crucifies Christians
US taxpayer's funds at work to arm, train and feed and finance Al CIA-da mercenaries crucifying and beheading Christians while stealing Syria for "greater Israel" before the US economic collapse. The executions reportedly took place Tuesday in Raqqa, where the extremist group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIS, an Al Qaeda-linked network, has taken over the city, according to Abu Ibrahim Alrquaoui, who identifies himself as a founder of a group called Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently.
ISIS has ruled over Raqqa for the last year, killing its remaining rebel population and demolishing national relics, according to multiple reports. "They want to stay in control. Everything they do is to scare people," Alrquaoui said. "That's why they kill people publicly" . . . Full story: foxnews.com
Christian Teenagers crucified, Unborn Babies hung from Trees in Syria
April 29, 2014 Sister Raghida, former head of a Christian school in Damascus explained the horrific event. "Islam or death" was the choice given to many Christians in Syria on Tuesday during the height of the conflict in Syria. She said many Syrian Christians have been affected by the atrocities taking place in the Christian population of the Middle Eastern country, an area once known for the harmonious coexistence of Muslims and Christians. According to Sister Raghida, the Muslims came to the two youths and said, "So you want to die as a Teacher in whom you trust? Please choose: either to renounce or you will be crucified!" The boys both refused to renounce faith in Jesus Christ and were martyred because of it. One of them was crucified in front of his father, who was then killed. The nun went on to tell the radio station that the Jihadists entered the city of Maaloula and started killing men, women, and children. According to her report, they killed and played football with the heads of those murdered.
The jihadists that are doing this have the support of Saudi Arabia and the United States. The Obama administration and the Saudia are desperate to overthrow the Syrian government, and Obama seems to have no problem allying us with some of the most despicable jihadists on the entire planet in order to make that happen.
The brutality against Christians by US-backed fighters has been going on for month after month with very little notice by the outside world. Just check out what has been going on in one little village in the middle of the war zone . . .
May 1, 2014 And of course Syria is far from the only place where we see this kind of brutality on a consistent basis. For example, Christians are regularly slaughtered by radical jihadists in Nigeria. The following is just one recent example:
While many of us were enjoying our Friday evenings, a massacre was taking place in Nigeria that left between 100 and 150 Christians dead and around 200 homes burned to the ground.
At around 10pm Nigeria time last night while villagers were asleep, more than 40 Fulani herdsmen attacked the Ungwan Gata, Me-Sankwai and Tekum villages in Manchok (Kaura Local Government), which is located in Southern Kaduna, Nigeria. Southern Kaduna is a predominantly Christian.
These jihadi attackers first set fire to homes and when the Christians attempted to escape their homes, they were shot dead or butchered with machetes. The ones who could not escape their homes burned to death.
No one attacked was spared, including women and children. A pastor, his wife, and their children, of one of the villages, were said to be among the butchered. . . Full story: endoftheamericandream.com
Comment: The 'hidden hand' has ways to force one world religion funded by the Jewish-ruled nations of Saudia Arabia and the United States.
"War is good for Business": Big Oil, Wall Street and the Pentagon's "New Cold War" Against Russia
May 8, 2014 The Soviet Union no longer exists. The Russian Federation is not a socialist state. But the US military and political establishment still seeks to destroy Russia. That's the object of the crisis the Pentagon, State Department and CIA are orchestrating in Ukraine. . . What drives this seemingly irrational course of action? . . . It's the need of Wall Street bankers and corporate CEOs to pump up their profits, stock prices and rates of return on their invested capital amid a global economic slowdown caused by capitalist overproduction.
The US Energy Information Administration projects that the United States will replace Russia this year as the world's top hydrocarbon energy producer. It says the US will replace Saudi Arabia as the world's No. 1 oil producer by 2015 . . . But these environment-destroying investments would not be profitable without the triple-digit oil prices of the past decade. . . made possible by the violent suppression of Middle East and North African energy production by the Pentagon through war and sanctions. . . In 1998, Russia, now capitalist, responded to a speculative attack on its currency by devaluing the ruble. Oil fell below $11 a barrel, throwing the Western oil industry into a panic.
The US responded with missiles and bombs. The target was not Russia but Iraq. . . The monopoly-dominated world capitalist market is saturated with commodities and capital. It is in a permanent battle because of a crisis that is unique to the capitalist system: overproduction. Bankers sit on trillions of dollars they cannot reinvest at an "acceptable" rate of profit. . . The "Cold War" did not end with the fall of the Soviet Union, because it was driven . . . by the internal contradictions of capitalism itself. . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
America's Neo-Nazi Government in Kiev. Towards a Scenario of Military Escalation?
May 4, 2014 The US-NATO sponsored Kiev coalition government is responsible for the killings perpetrated by Neo-Nazi Right Sector mobs and security forces in Odessa in which at least 43 people were killed.
In Odessa, Right Sector thugs set fire to the city's Trade Union building leading to countless deaths of innocent civilians who were burnt alive within the building which had been set ablaze . . . This movement against America's fascist regime in Kiev is widespread. It is not limited to "ethnic Russians" as conveyed by the media. The leaders of this movement are Ukrainians.
The Neo-Nazi mobs bear the hallmarks of US sponsored terrorism (e.g Syria) trained to commit atrocities against civilians. America's Neo-Nazi Government in Kiev is a reality. Confirmed by Germany's Bild: "Dozens of specialists from the US Central Intelligence Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation are advising the Ukrainian government" "Citing unnamed German security sources, Bild am Sonntag said the CIA and FBI agents were helping Kiev end the rebellion in the east of Ukraine and set up a functioning security structure". . .

Banning Christian Lawyers?
Two Canadian law societiessecretive committees of lawyers in each provincehave decided to blacklist all students from a Christian law school in BC called Trinity Western University (TWU), because of that school's Christian student code of conduct. None of those studentsno matter how smart, no matter how hard-working, no matter how honestwill be allowed to practice law.
It's anti-Christian bigotry that would be unthinkable if it targeted Black, Jewish, Muslim or gay students . . . Ontario's law society voted 28 to 21 to ban any TWU students from working. In Nova Scotia, one single bigot was all it took: they voted 10 to 9 to ban these Christian students. . . Full story: therealbigots.com

The Quest for the Jewish Gene
DNA reveals Ashkenazi "Jews" are not descendants of Abraham but of King Bulan and the Khazars and the YouTube series, DNA Unearths Stunning Secrets: Jews Are Khazars! Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4, by Rev. Texe Marrs presents the case most effectively. Additionally, Marrs cites further research in his essay, Angry Khazar Jews Reject DNA Science and History.
"In 2013 Johns Hopkins geneticist Eran Elhaik, Ph.D. very largely destroyed prevailing genetic theory concerning the origin of eastern European "Ashkenazi" Jewsroughly three quarters of Jews in the world today. In his groundbreaking article "The Missing Link of Jewish European Ancestry: Contrasting the Rhineland and the Khazarian Hypotheses," published in the prestigious scientific journal Genome Biology and Evolution, Elhaik reported the results of his first major study of Ashkenazim genetics. He said the genetic evidence indicates the roots of most "Jews" today are to be found in the east, in the ancient kingdom of Khazaria, converted to Judaism in the 8th century AD. So compelling is Elhaik's research that the scientific community remains stunned. The prevailing "Rhineland Hypothesis" of Ashkenazim origins, led by geneticist Dr. Harry Ostrer of New York's Yeshivah University, asserts that the large Ashkenazim populations of Poland and Russia got there primarily from Germany in the west beginning in about the 16th century AD. Ostrer claims that genetic evidence indicates a Middle Eastern origin for Ashkenazi Jews. Elhaik has requested the genetic data upon which Ostrer makes this claim but says Ostrer will not share it with him. Such non-cooperation lends even more credibility to Elhaik's thesis, which agrees with Arthur Koestler's book, The Thirteenth Tribe, that perhaps a million Khazarians, fleeing the invading Mongols, migrated west from their home in the Caucasus to Poland beginning in the 13th century AD. There, these Gentile converts to Judaism created what most people think of as "Jews" today."
"Dr. Dan Graur, a world-famous Jewish geneticist who served on the faculty of Tel Aviv University for 22 years and is now at the University of Houston, smiles at the distress of the Zionists. Dr. Elhaik's research is, he said, "very honest." Graur is the recipient of the prestigious Humboldt Award, given to the world's top biological scientist.
In 2001, genetics research by Dr. Ariella Oppenheim of Tel Aviv University produced basically the same results as Dr. Elhaik. Oppenheim's study also found that the Jews origins are in Khazaria, and that they are of Turkic bloodline. She also reported that some Palestinians have the chromosome in their blood indicating they are Cohanim and Israelite. But Oppenheim's work has not stirred up the Zionists as much because she is not so public with her findings. So the Zionists' wrath is reserved for Elhaik, whose research they greatly fear."
The stakes could not be any higher. Mr. Marrs provides a most telling statement. "If God (the Jews spell his name G-d, without the vowel) did not give us the Land as the seed of Abraham," one fanatical Jewish teacher explained, "we're finished. The Palestinians will win the ideological war and the world will turn against us." This conclusion is exactly the reason that such pillars of Christian-Zionism Dispensationalists like John Hagee and Hal Lindsey are so dishonest in their preaching and the reason why they are leading the would be, faithful believers astray. . .

Comment: Colonialism, whatever its beginnings, was indeed becoming increasingly benevolent. And anti-colonialism was in its inception an openly declared Communist strategy to bring down European civilisation everywhere. All this, of course, was and is known to the power, the invisible world government, which operates through international finance and Communism. Self-government at this time for the 'nations' of Africa is impossible: what appears to have been achieved so far in that regard has been the result of the momentum generated by the colonizers. That momentum is visibly dying down, and every successive disruption of government brakes the momentum the more.
Thus the destruction of the native Africans, according to the satanic plan to exploit the wealth of Africa in the service of a World Government, is now inevitable unless that World Government is exposed, challenged, and defeated in the little time left before "none dare call it treason." If the Rhodesia Front government is destroyed, one of the few last bastions from which challenge is possible wi11 be gone (March 12, 1966) . . .
On May 3, 1966, the Portuguese Minister of Foreign Affairs Alberto Franco Nogueira . . . observed that "For the first time in public debate the African countries realizsed that they are the stake in a vast game that far outstrips them, that they can hardly follow but which is not necessarily identifiable with their real longer-term interests. For the first time the African countries saw that principles, ideals and the very truth were swept aside, so easily, to achieve aims that were closer to the heart of the great powers than of the countries of Africa".
"The African countries, yes; but not their peoples. It is the resources of the African continent which interest not so much the "great powers" as the invisible world government, in its dual aspects of peoples of Africa and of Christian civilization stand in the way of the heart's desire of the International Conspiracy, so in their millions they must perish to clear the way for the Grand Design" (June 18, 1966; Bryan W. Monahan, The Moving Storm, p. 19:4 20:2; 26:3-5).
The Lusitania and the Secrets of War Revealed
May 2, 2014 One of the great mysteries of the First World Warwhether or not the passenger ship Lusitania was carrying munitions and therefore a legitimate target when it was sunk by a German submarine in May 1915has been solved in the affirmative by newly released government papers. They contain Foreign Office concerns that a 1982 salvage operation might "literally blow up on us" and that "there is a large amount of ammunition in the wreck, some of which is highly dangerous".
Yet the truth was kept hidden in 1915 because the British government wanted to use the sinking of a non-military ship, and the loss of 1,198 lives, as an example of German ruthlessness. It was also a useful means of swaying American opinion in favour of entering the war. It eventually had the desired effectthe US declared war on Germany in April 1917but the lie continued as successive governments, worried about their ongoing relations with America, denied there were munitions on board. . .

Comment: Major US news outlets turn a blind eye to a wide array of evidence "that Western covert operators were behind" events such as "Bali, Madrid, London 7/7, mosque bombings in Iraq and elsewhere and, of course, 9/11. Because the mainstream media are integral to the Industrial Military Academic Intelligence Media complex," journalist Barrie Zwicker observes, "the cold-blooded technicians of death face no journalistic scrutiny. Without moral, legal, technical or financial constraints, the black operators range freely, executing the orders of the global oligarchies."
More Fears Mount Zion to be relinquished to Vatican
January 22, 2014 Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, founder of the Temple Institute added his fears that parts of Mount Zion in Jerusalem may be relinquished to the Vatican as the planned visit of Pope Francis in May approaches. He referenced the 2008 agreement of the Israel government to relinquish the historic Russian Compound buildings in Jerusalem to Russian control. The offices of the Agriculture Ministry and the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel vacated the premises in 2011.
Rabbi Ariel was among the paratroopers who helped liberate the Temple Mount in the Six Day War of 1967. He said for years there have been tentative plans to assign ownership of the Western Wall to the Jews, the Temple Mount to the Muslims and the Church . . . Full story: israelnationalnews.com
Schiff: We're heading for a Crisis worse than 2007
President Obama and like-minded politicians claim this stimulus has pushed the economy forward, boosting GDP and keeping inflation low.
But Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, says "it's another lie."
In fact, according to Schiff, the government has done nothing more than create a "phony" economy that is "completely dependent on the ability to borrow more money that we can't pay back."
"The Fed knows that the US economy is not recovering," Schiff said. "It simply is being kept from collapse by artificially low interest rates and quantitative easing. As that support goes, the economy will implode . . . We're broke. We owe trillions. Look at our budget deficit; look at the debt to GDP ratio, the unfunded liabilities. If we were in the Euro zone, they would kick us out . . . when the "real crash" comes," it will be worse than the Great Depression.
Unemployment will skyrocket, credit will dry up, and worse, the dollar will collapse completely, "wiping out all savings and sending consumer prices into the stratosphere . . . this 'cancer' could consume a trillion dollars from consumers this year. . . " Full story: signup.moneymorning.com
Comment: Mr. Schiff speaks like a student of William Branham, who said, "Pay up your lingering debts".
The Kingdom of Heaven
Throughout Scripture we find twins, the Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, there was Abel and Cain, the dove and the crow, Esau and Jacob, Jesus and Judas, Christ and anti-Christ, and there is the Bride of Christ or true Church and the Great Whore and her once Protestant harlot daughters, the false church. Each declares the letter of the Message but only Christ's "little flock" possesses and lives the Spirit without compromise, the other applies human reasoning to justify his alliance with the world.
In Matthew 13:31-32, "Jesus presented a parable, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed (sinapis nigra) which a man took, and sowed in his field; it is smaller than all other seeds; but when full grown it is the greatest among herbs and becomes a tree [not strictly, but it can reach as high as the horses' heads, and the rider], so that the [small] birds of the air come and rest [not lodge] in its branches".
The Kingdom of Heaven sprung from a tiny seed spoken by the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden: "Of every tree of the Garden you may freely eat: but of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil you shall not eat: for in the day that you eat from it you shall surely die." Here also its antithesis the Kingdom of Darkness, organized religion bastard-born from the seed of one Word misspoken by he who was once "the sum of wisdom and beauty: "You shall not surely die." At this point Lucifer, the angel of Light became the angel of Darkness"the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil" against which God had cautioned. These trees in the midst of the Garden spoke the same Word with authority; One respecting man's sovereign free moral agency to choose or refuse according to faith or doubt, the other adding one word of reasoning to God's perfect Word. Reasoning wisdom against faith is the mark of the beast.
The Kingdom of Heaven began as a tiny revelation of God's spoken Word, which is the original Seed (Luke 8:11). It grows as Word is added to Word and new souls are baptized into the Kingdom; spirits or "birds of the air" rest in its branches, feed from its seed and spread its teaching and their errors in new communities of fellowship and organization or by the baptism with the Holy Spirit (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 77:1; 228:5). Like the Trees in Paradise they are so close they would almost deceive the very elect if it were possible, yet each has produced after its kind.
The fact that the Kingdom of God grew from the smallest of seeds to become the universal Body of Christ is not the point of the parable, for in comparison with organized religions His Body remains a "little flock", rather than its small size mustard seed is most noted for the fact it will not hybridize.
"The Spirit and the Bride say: "Come." And let he who sees the revelation say: "Come." And let he who is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of Life freely. [Faith is only for the elect; His sheep will hear His Voice without reasoning]. For I testify to everyone that understands the Words of the prophecy of this Book [revealed by the seventh angel, William Branham (Revelation 10:7)], If anyone shall add to these things, God shall add to him the plagues that are written in this Book: and if any man shall take away from the Words of the Book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this Book" (Revelation 22:17-19).
From Pentecost through Seven Church Ages to the present Holy Convocation the Kingdom of God is made up of His Word built upon Word. When we allow reasoning, imagination, memory, conscience and affection to override the revealed Word we deceive ourselves, "our thoughts either accusing or else excusing one another" (Romans 2:15). We must not live to please the world, but God the Word. You are a chosen stone or witness in the Temple not because of the magnitude of your faith in the "present Truth" but by virtue of its purity. Election is not built upon scholarship and learning but upon our identification with the mind of Christ, His revealed Word (I Corinthians 2:16; Ephesians 2:8).
Oh, how sweet the love of God in fellowship among the Brethren, but faith has been compromised with human reasoning so that the fruit is death. Brother Branham explained, "The false vine came into full fruition in this Laodicean Age (Revelation 3:17-20). Her fruit would mature and ripen. That is correct. This evil-spirited church, full of iniquity, will be revealed as the mustard seed that grew into a tree wherein lodged the fouls of the air. At her head will be the antichrist, the mystery of iniquity. All this is true. And if this is true, then it must also be true that the Bride Church will mature, and her ripeness shall be an identification with her Lord by means of the Word, and her Head who will come to her is the Mystery of Godliness, which indeed is Christ. And as the false church with all cunning and diabolical power made up of political force, physical force and demons of darkness come against this true vine, the true vine with the fullness of the Spirit and the Word will do the very acts of power that Jesus did. Then as she nears her Headstone, becoming like Him through the Word, Jesus will come that the Bride and Groom may be forever united as one" (ibid. p. 363:1).
Matthew 13:33, "He spoke another parable to them, The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, until it was all leavened".
Leaven represents sin: a little memory, affection, imagination, conscience and reasoning added or removed from revelation leavens the whole lump, and "the whole lump" is the body of believers so that they are no longer separated from the world to their Head, Christ the Word, but separated from Christ the Word to the headship of denomination.
Well, we have to get along with the world and the Lord has blessed our kinder, gentler more understanding approach? So many have joined the congregation we have divided into three churches covering a greater area and still we are growing. O, Praise the lord.
Yes, praise the Lord, but the seven days of Israel's feast of Unleavened Bread typed the Seven Church Ages in which there was to be no leaven. Surely you have established "goodwill among men" like the unjust steward, but you have broken God's type, the shadow or plan laid down for you to follow. You don't realize what you have done, but you have separated from the Word.
Silly excuses that you need to witness to people you know could care less about your beliefs, or your One God. The Word Church means the 'called out' or separated ones. If people want to learn what you believe, let them come onto your holy ground, do not trespass onto their forbidden territory. And how many came to enquire? Not one and your labours have come to naught because it was not the Lord who led you along that path, but human reasoning justifying self-will against the Holy Spirit who told you in writing to "make yourself ready".
Before we can be married to our new Husband, that old husband, the nature of this world that we contact with the five senses of our bodysee, feel, hear, taste and smell, and the five senses or our mortal spiritmemory, affection, imagination, conscience and reasoning, must be dead to us in order for us to be alive to Christ, the Word, otherwise we will become an adulteress (Romans 7:3).
Brother Branham said, "In the house of God we live by the Word of God and every one that proceedeth out of the mouth of God, and any otherfraudwe won't listen to him. See? "You shall eat unleavened bread, every Church Age, just as I give it to you" (II Peter 1:12; Exodus 12:14-20). But don't try to go back and inject that over into this, because it's come into a stalk. "You shall take the bones and things that's left over of the sacrifice and burn them." Gone, the Church Age died, went on; we're in another one now. Amen. . ."
Notice Ephesians 4:30, "grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby you are sealed until the day of your [physical] redemption" (God's only Provided Place of Worship, p. 36:239-241). That is, until the day the Book of Redemption has been revealed, and the Redeemer comes to claim His possession.
If you are sealed in Christ as a Son or Daughter in God's Family, the Devil will be unable to tempt you to go back out into the things of the world, for your old Husband, the nature of this world, which is the nature of Satan, is dead to you, you are a new creation, your life is hid in God through Christ and those worldly interests and activities no longer attract you as they once did.
God's plan of salvation is precise (Matthew 4:4). He will only receive worship in the place He has chosen to place His Name in. Well you say "that Place is Christ." Yes it is, but we must meet Him in that part of the Body He is building now." The foundations are down, the sides are up, He is finishing the capstone of the Buildingand soon He will start setting the wall's foundations with 144,000 precious stonesour only entrance into the Capstone is through a clear revelation of "present Truth which is the Word He is fulfilling now" (Deuteronomy 16:2; II Peter 1:12). The denominations are trying to meet Him in the Word for a day gone by; like Noah's Message or the Law of Moses, the Message of Luther, Wesley or the Pentecostals, but that Word is fulfilled history and He is no longer in those places.
"The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it."
One cannot worship in Spirit and Truth outside the "present Truth" as the measure of Spirit is insufficient to regenerate (I Corinthians 13:10). Thus it is not the Holy Spirit that would lead us to assemble with them, but carnal senses of flesh and mortal spirit which are unredeemed and of the world. They must be brought into subjection to the Word in our soul.
Matthew 13:33-35, "All these things Jesus spoke to the multitude in parables, indeed He said nothing to them without a parable [refraining not only from all naked discourse, but even from all interpretation of these parables to the mixed multitude] that the words of the prophet David (Psalm 78:2) might be fulfilled, saying, 'I will open My mouth in parables; I will utter things kept hidden since the foundation of the world'."
In Matthew 13:10-17 Jesus explained to His disciples what He spoke to the mixed multitude in parables, allowing the Holy Spirit to separate the sheep who receive His Words by faith (John 10:1-6) from the goats who hear the "letter" only and parse that through the filter of their ten senses in order to justify their worldly lusts and convince themselves as to why they should proceed in their worldly ways. Jesus allowed the Spirit to thin down His crowd and sift the believers from the make-believers and un-believers and He told Brother Branham not to expound the Seventh Seal to the mixed multitude but let the Spirit of revelation separate non-elect into their many doctrinal camps and preserve His elect from that confusion.
Brother Branham prayed, "God, my ministry is just now beginning. I want to base it; I want to tear that thing out from where it was, and get rid of all these here leaches, and things a hanging on, so I can get to the people and tell them what's the truth." And that's right. I said, "I'm tired of this and the man-made stuff anyhow. And I'm going to be where God can use me. I'm going to live right in that channel, as long as I live" (Early Spiritual Experiences, #52-0713A).
Matthew 13:36-43, "Then leaving the multitudes, Jesus went into the house. And His disciples came to Him, saying: Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field. He answered: He who sows the good seed is the Son of man." He sowed the spoken Word which is the original Seed (Luke 8:11), and the perfect Church that sprang from the Word fell into the ground at the First Nicaea Council of AD325. It had to emulate the Headstone in order to multiply, "for unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies it abides alone, but if it dies it bears much fruit" (John 12:24). It lay buried through the Dark Ages of Thyatira, then began to revive in the Sardis, Philadelphian and Laodicean Church Ages as the Revelation of Justification by grace through faith, Sanctification by the Blood, and the restoration of the gifts of the Spirit were restored; but when the revelation of the Seven Seals through the prophet William Branham (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7) brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form the world church system rejected the Message and crucified unto themselves the Son of God afresh. Christ's end time Bride has united with Christ the fullness of the Word that has already overcome death and we will therefore not see death in the flesh but change in the atoms.
"The field is the world"Gentile churches worldwidewherein the Word had to be planted; the tares were also planted in the churches and brought forth more abundantly than the wheat. The false church hybridized the Word and humanized church government with Nicolaitanism and Balaamism, organized and fought the true Christian. Turning back to verse 30 we read that "in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them," so the tares have their revival first.
"The good seed are the children of the Kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; and the enemy who sowed them is the Devil; the harvest is the end of Age (Matthew 24:3); and the reapers are the angels. Therefore just as the tares are gathered up and burned; so will it be in the end of the Age." And this is the end of the Age; the Imperial Roman Empire diminished and was transformed into the Papal Roman Empire which will rule to the Consummation. The last Church Age was Laodicea which means "people's rights" or Communism; it ended in apostasy "and knows it not." Now bankrupt the people of these nations are enslaved to the IMF and other instruments of the banksters of the City of London. Churches and other religions that received freedom of worship and revival have apostatized. Nations have been gathered into Jewry's United Nations Organization; denomi-nations are gathering in the World Council of Churches, and all religions are being gathered under Rome.
On March 8, 1963 Brother Branham was caught up from Mount Sunset into a constellation of the theophanies of the seven angels as Christ descended, "clothed with a Cloud and the rainbow sign of the Covenant on His Head, and with the Book of Redemption open in His hand, and when He cried with a loud voice seven thunders uttered their voices." This was the "sign of Christ's [parousia] Coming" (Matthew 24:3b, 22-28; Ephesians 1:10) and "the time of the end"; signifying that Christ's mediation is fulfilled, redemption is over and the sealed Book is open, (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:1-7; 5:1-9). Now the same Holy Spirit that was sent to harvest the Church Age saints is present in Christ the fullness of the Word "to gather first the end-time tares into their denominational, doctrinal, and charismatic groups for burning in the Fire of tribulation and torment pending the general resurrection and white throne judgment."
God is building a Family of character. "Unless we suffer with Him we cannot reign with Him. You have to suffer to reign. The reason for this is that character simply is never made without suffering. Character is a VICTORY, not a gift. A man without character can't reign because power apart from character is Satanic. But power with character is fit to rule. And since He wants us to share even His throne on the same basis that He overcame and is set down in His Father's throne, then we have to overcome to sit with Him. And the little temporary suffering we go through now is not worthy to be compared to the tremendous glory that will be revealed in us when He comes. Oh, what treasures are laid up for those who are willing to enter into His kingdom through much tribulation" (ibid, p. 117:1). The Gentile tribulation commenced when Roman General Titus' invested Judea and will continue to the translation (Matthew 24:3a; 15-28). This is a trial by which we must all be tried to prove our attributes "minister an entrance into the everlasting Kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ" (II Peter 1:11).
Hebrews 12:3-8, "Consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you may not grow weary and lose heart. You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin. And you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as Sons, "My Son, do not lightly regard the discipline of the Lord, nor faint when you are reproved by Him: for those whom the Lord loves He disciplines, and He scourges every Son whom he receives." It is for discipline that you endure, God deals with you as with Sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline? But if you are without discipline, of which all have become partakers, then you are bastards, and your father ain't God".
"Now we can see why there were two vines, one true and one false. Now we can see why Abraham had two sons, one after the flesh (that persecuted Isaac) and one after promise. Now we can see how that out of the same parents two boys came forth as twins, one knowing and loving the things of God, and the other knowing much of the same truth, but not of the same Spirit; hence he persecuted the child that was elect. God did not reprobate for the sake of reprobation. He reprobated for the sake of the elect. ELECT CANNOT persecute elect. ELECT CANNOT harm elect. It is the reprobates that persecute and destroy the elect. Oh, those reprobates are religious. They are smart. They are of the Cain line, [spiritual Serpent's seed. They build their Babels, they build their cities, they build their empires, and all the while calling on God. They hate the true seed, and they will do all they can, (even in the Name of the Lord) to destroy God's elect ones. But they are needed. "What is the chaff to the wheat?" No chaff, no wheat. But at the end, what happens to the chaff? It is burned with fire unquenchable. And the wheat? Where is it? It is gathered in His garner. It is where He is".
"Oh elect of God, beware. Study closely. Be careful. Work out your salvation with fear and trembling. Rely upon God and be strong in His might. Your adversary, the Devil, is even now going about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. Watch unto prayer and be steadfast. This is the end time. Both the true and false vine are coming into maturity, but before the wheat matures, those ripened tares must be bound for the burning. See, they are all joining the World Council of Churches. That is the binding. Soon the garnering of the wheat will come. But right now the two spirits are at work in two vines. Come out from among the tares. Start to overcome that you may be considered praiseworthy for your Lord, and fit to reign and rule with Him" (ibid, p. 359:1-2).
"The Son of man shall send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His Kingdom all things that offend, and all evildoers; and cast them into a furnace of fire: there men [bound for a thousand years] will weep and grind their teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear let him hear." The Son of God went forth sowing in each Church Age, and His enemy followed each Message sowing the seed of discrepancy. The Seed of God is the Word of God, and every seed must bring forth of its kind so the Seed of God has become the children of God and they must be the manifested W_O_R_D for their Age (Luke 8:11; Genesis 1:11).
When Christ was a Mediator, each Age of PART-Word had its Angel. Christ is no longer a Mediator and has returned in the prophetic Office of Son of Man as He was before Calvary when He sowed the original Seed Word. Now He is separating and rejecting everything but His end-time Bride Heirloom seed, because anything contrary to God's Word is the seed of discrepancy and a make-believer. And as the Word became flesh in His Bride, the seed of discrepancy has become flesh in the denominations whose end will be the Lake of Fire (Revelation 18:4).
Matthew 7:21-23, "Not every one that says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of My Father who is in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, haven't we prophesied in Your Name? And in Your Name cast out Demons? And in Your Name done many wonderful works? Then I will profess to them, I never knew you [as My elect]: depart from Me, you who work iniquity".
For "Many are called but few are chosen" (Matthew 22:14).
Now Christ is God manifest; God's eternal thoughts made flesh to fulfill the part of Adam's KINSMAN Redeemer. As Eve was taken from the side of the first Adam in the form of a rib when God put him to sleep, and made flesh of his flesh and bone of his bone (Genesis 2:22-25), so the wife of the Last Adam was taken from His side in the form of the Holy Spirit when God put Him to sleep on Calvary, and made spirit of His Spirit. I Corinthians 6:17, "God and the spirit that is joined together with God is One Spirit." Had the seed of the first and the last Adam not mongrelized it would reproduce after its own kind and there could never have been mongrel people, nations and denomi-nations.
Christ is marrying a W_O_R_D Bride, a VIRGIN to the W_O_R_D, not a denominational harlot. "When He had fasted forty days and forty nights and was hungry, God deployed Satan to try and prove whether or not He was the Word. And the Tempter said: If You are the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But Jesus answered and said: It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God." And in each of the other temptations of Matthew 4:1-11 Jesus pointed His Adversary to the Absolute of God's written Word which can never change but must be fulfilled (Malachi 3:6; Matthew 24:35; Hebrews 13:7-9).
I said to a Brother, "The aged women must be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience, that they behave as becomes holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the Word of God be not blasphemed" (Titus 2:2-5).
Our precious Brother compromised His testimony as Christ's W_O_R_D Bride by his immediate riposte which was to deny and ridicule the Word as some old fuddy duddy without showing one Scripture in support of his reasoning that Titus 2:5 is fulfilled. I know this was not intended but this is the blasphemy of which Paul warned Titus in verse 5, and this verse was certainly in force after the opening of the Seals in 1963.
Brother Branham said, "Such a disgrace, put women on the police force. If that isn't a mark of debauchery among any city. As many men is out of work and they have to put them women out there, when the Bible said she's to stay home and be a chaste keeper at home . . . I can hear some of you sisters saying nowmaybe not right presentbut hear you saying, "Who me, obey my husband? Humph, I'll make him obey me." Well, there's where you're wrong. "Stay at home, chaste? I don't care what the Bible says about it; you leave me alone." Listen, sister, that wasn't back in the dark ages, that's the voice of today. That never happened, so much back in the antediluvian, it happens today too. That's the same thing . . . And you men that will let your wife do it, you're no longer Sons of God. No, you kinda fell into Sodom (That's right); let the women boss you around. Oh, my (The Flashing Red Light of His Coming, p. 30:150-156).
Question: "Do you think it is right for women to do personal work outside the church"?
"Certainly, I do. Yes, sir. We're all workers together. Women have their places, and certainly they do. Yes, sir. Just do all the personal work you can do and God will bless you for it. All right, now let's see" (COD, 281:Q62).
"Our nation has come so little until they've even taken the jobs away from the men, and put women out here in these places, till ninety percent of them, nearly, are prostitutes. And talk about man being gone, sure, it's because they got women out there in their jobs. And they got so lowdown till they put women as peace officers on the street. That's a disgrace to any nation. Yes, sir. What are you going to do about it?
"What do you do about it, Brother Branham?" I have to respect it; I'm an American citizen. I do what the big boss says do. If I ever. . . If a family ever loses its respect for the family (the children lose the respect to the parents), that family's tore to pieces. If a church ever loses respect of its pastor, why that church is gone. And if a nation ever loses their respect of the Supreme Court and its decisions, that nation is gone to pieces. . ."
And again, "I don't say all women shouldn't sometime have to work; maybe they got a sick husband or something another, they have to work. But if they don't have to, they shouldn't do it. Their place is at home, their little castle; that's exactly where they should be. . . Listen here, the man is the ruler; don't you think you can rule the house. You're not the ruler of the house. You're absolutely . . . You're not a slave now, but you're a helpmate. The man has the rule over his wife, and he's responsible solely for his wife. God makes the man answer for his wife. Now, read and see if God says that now. For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is in the image and the glory of God: . . . God is not a woman; God's a man" (COD, p. 331:768-782).
"Wonder if you women are willing to let your hair grow out? Wonder if you men have got enough courage to tell her that? You're supposed to be the head of the house. She's the neck; she turns you. That's contrary. Do you think a shaking revival would ever take these women out of these public offices, policemen on the streets and things? She ought to be in the kitchen. You think you'd ever be able to get her back to that again? No, sir. She'll never do it, 'less she gets saved; then she'll do it. You won't have to tell her nothing about it; she'll find her place; the Holy Ghost will lead her to her place. But say, "The Holy Ghost is leading me"? To that contrary to the Word? Don't call that the Holy Ghost (Just One More Time, Lord, p. 19:114).
We must "study to show ourselves approved of God by rightly dividing the Word of God" and "zealously work to make our calling and election sure" (II Timothy 2:15; II Peter 1:10). Many years ago now someone I once held in high regard stood up, stated he did not believe a word I was preaching and separated himself. When I met him years later he was filled with a spirit of such 'compassion he informed me that everyone is "saved," including Satan. The spirit that led him to "go out from us" had shown "The Lord . . . is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" (II Peter 3:9). The any and all of whom Peter was speaking are God's "beloved," His elect.
We serve "a jealous God who visits the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation of them that hate Him; and shows mercy to thousands of them that love Him, and keep His Commandments" (Exodus 20:5-6). In our first birth we are children of Laodicea bearing the iniquity of four generations of disobedience and unbelief that has brought the world to the eve of destruction "in the day of vengeance of our God;" in mercy He has warned His elect and provided one way to escape the judgment through a second birth by the Message of His Prophet, William Branham. God is a God of His Word; His unfailing W_O_R_D does not go out of fashion or "change with the times" and is the sole thing He will receive and redeem because it is His eternal Self. If we add to His Word we will be cast into the tribulation; if we diminish from His Word we will be cast into the Lake of Fire (Revelation 22:18-19).
Love is corrective, always. A pastor does not correct the Church for his ego or narcissistic pleasure but to reconcile it to the love of God in the unity of the faith: "Two cannot two walk together unless they are in agreement" (Amos 3:3)? The function of "teaching" is to place and establish one in his position in the Body whereas the purpose of preaching is for "correction." Woman types the Church and a husband is responsible for the conduct of his wife; if she will learn anything she should ask her husband at home, so your pastor is your husband spiritually speaking (I Corinthians 11:3; 14:34-35).
The elect of God cannot be deceived on the revealed Word of God whereas those who have not received the love of God in this our day, which is Jesus Christ the mystery of God revealed in the Seven Seals, will receive a strong delusion that they should believe the same lie Satan told Eve. That God will "surely not damn them" for heeding the hiss of the Serpent of Judaeo-Catholicism and the World Council of Churches when God has said they "surely will be damned who believed not the Truth" (Matthew 24:24; John 10:1-5; II Thessalonians 2:1-12; Revelation 18:1-4).
A 'compassionate' delusion contrary to God's Word has misled another to desire the salvation of the physical Serpent's seed. However the Lord God can only re-deembuy back or recover by expenditure of effort or stipulated paymentwhat was formerly His possession. The physical Serpent's seed are not in God's creation anymore than hybrids such as the liger and the mule. There is no redemption for any of them since they do not belong in God's creation and He cannot re-deem them. Unlike the firstborn of other animals such as the ass, which must be redeemed with a lamb or slain itself there is no necessity to redeem the mule (Exodus 13:13; 34:20). Being a sterile hybrid and not original creation by God's spoken Word the mule has no "seed in its life" and is unable to reproduce itself anymore than denominational religion can reproduce the Life of Christ (Genesis 1:11; John 6:63).
God placed "enmity" between the Seed of the Serpent and the seed of the first Adam and the last Adam. The enmity is extant and the cunning Serpent has projected his hatred upon the (once) Christian nations of this wicked and adulterous generation by imposing legislation that projects that hatred as coming from God's people and Adam's race as the holocaust hoax is projected upon Judaeo-Nazi Germany (Genesis 3:15). Furthermore, Brother Branham states that the physical Serpent's seed was not in the Book of Life from the foundation of the World and thus irredeemable; consequently it is not in the Lamb's Book of Life (COD, p. 1130:375; ibid. p. 104:2; The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 32:4).
Everyone born of Adam's race was written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the earth and manifested here on earth to choose or refuse to serve the Word. The Book of Life is the genealogy of the first Adam and so long as one's name remains in that Book he is "saved" and will be granted into eternal Life at the white throne judgment. Those who reject the Word are removed from the Book and LOST. Cain and his race are accursed or (Heb.) 'cherem' and dedicated to destruction for the glory of the Lord. Being unrelated to the first Adam they are not in the Book of Life and born LOST because Jesus Messiah is the Last Adam, He is not the last Cain and has no kinship with his race which is without a KINSMAN Redeemer. Were Jesus Christ their kinsman redeemer He would have had to be born of adultery like Cain. One born of incest or adultery is not in the election and cannot be born-again.
Christ is Word and we must be a W_O_R_D Bride in the flesh and blood pedigree of the first Adam, and in the unity of 'the' faith forever settled in heaven (Psalm 119:89) with the last Adam.
Our Brother supposed that over time the hybrid could breed itself into Adam's race but as Jewish DNA experts trying to find Cohen's and Levites knows, they are pretty well all Edomites or Khazars. Brother Branham said, "That lineage of Cain still exists, and the lineage of Seth still exists. They both come down just the same. Cain's children is here in Jeffersonville tonight, and Seth's children's here in Jeffersonville tonight. As the blood stream weakens and goes out, but that lineage still hangs on (COD. p. 305:589-590; 400:183; Isaiah 34; 63:1-7; Malachi 1:4; Matthew 23:33-35).
Brother Branham constantly taught against miscegenation/multiculturalism that Jesus said would be a sign in the end-time (Matthew 24:37; Genesis 6:1-13). "See how that seed of the Serpent moved down, how that seed of the woman moved down, how that seed of the Serpent begin to predominate, predominate, get greater and greater, greater, greater, greater until now there's nothing left but just a little small remnant of names still left written from the foundation of the world."
"But when the body had been formed and that last name that's on the Book be recognized here on earth, the Books are closed, for it is completed; the story of redemption has been read completely. Then we go to see Him and to meet Him in the resurrection. "He that heareth My words and believeth on Him that has sent Me has Eternal Life and shall never come to the judgment, but has passed from death unto Life. No man can come to Me except My Father draws him." "And it's not him that willeth or him that runneth; it's God that showeth mercy," said the Scripture. It's not him that willeth. A lot of people say, "I'll join church; I'm going to be a good guy; I'll do this." That has nothing to do with it. It's God that showeth mercy.
"But just before the end time, the Seed's almost gone from the earth; it's weighted out, the seed of the righteous. The seed of the Serpent is accumulating faster and faster and faster, getting ready for this atomic age to be destroyed. "But just before that time, I'll send a way of escape. I've set before you an open door. Strait is this gate and narrow is this way, and it'll be just a few of them that'll find it, for broad is the way that leads to destruction and many will go in thereat." There you are. Just before this, this great Light was supposed to spring forth" (The Baptism of the Holy Ghost, p. 26:118; Zechariah 14:7; Revelation 18:4).
Matthew 13:44-46, "Again, the Kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid, and for joy he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field."
"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking fine pearls: and upon finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had, and bought it".
These two parables require no explanation. Once you have passed intellectual understanding and theological experience and the mind of Christ has entered your soul, it sets your mind in order for holiness to bring your body subject and align your activities to that faith which is the anchor and tiepost that holds your soul to God's unchanging Word. Now a word is a thought when it is expressed, and as God is eternal and omniscient His Word is infallible, and can never change but must be fulfilled. So if He determined that woman, the byproduct and helpmate is to be a "Keeper at home" what is the name of the spirit that would argue otherwise? When Peter employed such fuzzy logic "Jesus turned, and said to Peter, "Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me: for your mind is focused on the worldly things of man and not on the things of God" (Matthew 16:33).
Matthew 13:47-52, "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet cast into the sea, gathering fish of every kind: when it was full, they drew it up on the beach, sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but the bad they threw away. So shall it be at the end of the world: [which is where we are now]: the angels will come forth, and take out the wicked from among the just, and cast them into the furnace of fire [tribulation and torment pending the general resurrection and white throne judgment]: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Have you understood all these things?"
"Then Jesus said: As My disciples trained for the kingdom of heaven [by the shadows and types of the Old Testament you have double treasures having now the revelation of the New Testament] and may be compared with the owner of a house who brings out of his treasure new things and old".
Laodicea was the last dispensation in which Christ was a mediator for the ignorance of saints restricted to PART-Word; its predominant virtue was Brotherly Kindness because the Lord winked at the ignorance of the false Oneness, Twoness and Trinitarian godheads he has since exposed and condemned as the mark of the beast. And the Lord sent three angels: Billy Graham and Oral Roberts preached to the formal and Pentecostal churches in Sodom; the Prophet William Branham ministered outside organizational circles to awaken and call the sleeping virgin out from man-made religion into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Matthew 25:6; Luke 17:28-30; Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19; Revelation 18:1-4).
This parable was fulfilled in Laodicea through the ministries of these men by whom God spread the Gospel net worldwide over all groups claiming to worship Jesus Christ. When the net was full they dragged it onto the beach and He sorted its contents by the Message of Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11 and Revelation 10:7, which restored the apostolic faith and finished the mystery of God.
Many "fish came out of her" but few entered in to Him, the crabs and turtles He threw back. Brethren, make your choice, because the tribulation with its wailing and gnashing of teeth is as near as the prophesied, depression, earthquake and 'hot stage' of World War III.
Seeking some information in behalf of the son of one of the Brothers I received this response from a Brother I baptized in the early 80s:
"As for Brother A, I have no idea where he is . . . I will ask if others may have it. Brother B has dropped out of contact also, and Sister B is choosing not to communicate readily; he does not seem willing to fellowship, I will pass on your address if I should hear from him."
"There are not too many left of those walking in the Light, and I chose not to contact any, as I am sure they will contact me if they feel so led. Be sound a bit harsh, even un-Christian, but, there seems little interest in what we understand as the continuing unfolding of Jesus Christ, as I understand it, so we find there are few left who wish to communicate".
The second crucifixion is following the pattern of the first, before which everyone deserted Jesus who later prophesied, "When the Son of man comes, will He find faith on the earth" (Luke 18:18; II Thessalonians 2:3)?
Matthew 13:53-58, "When Jesus had finished these parables, He departed and came into His own country [which was not Judea but Nazareth in Galilee so Jesus was not a 'Jew']; He taught there in the synagogue and astonished everyone with his wisdom and His miracles. How is this possible? Is not this the carpenter's son, and we know Mary His mother and his brethren, James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas. And His sistersthey all live here. [What organization did He belong to?] Where did this Man get all this learning? And they were offended at him. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honour, except in his own country, and in his own house." And he did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief".
It has always been more difficult to present the Gospel among your own people, because you are 'common' and there is often a critical spirit. That is what the Bible says, and was the Prophet's experience. But when you are where everybody loves you and in expectation you feel that welcome spirit.
Brother Branham explained: "In the church there is the pastor, and that pastor is a special person. He's built to where he can put up with the fusses of the people. He's a burden-bearer; he's the ox of the team. He's a man that can set down when somebody's got something against somebody else, and set down with them two families, and take neither side, and reason it out, and bring it right back into sweetness. See? He's a pastor; he knows how to take care of things."
"The evangelist is a special man. He's a man that's burning like a fireball. He runs into a city and preaches his message, and gets out of there somewhere else. See, he's a special man."
"The teacher is a special man. He sets back under the anointing of the Spirit and is able to take the Words and put them together by the Holy Spirit, that the pastor or evangelist either one could not compare with him."
"And then we find out the apostle is a special man. He's a setter-in-order. He's a man that's sent from God to set the things in order."
"The prophet is a special man. A prophet is a man to whom the Word of the Lord comes to, because the prophet is so designed life that his subconscious and his first conscious is so close together that he doesn't go to sleep to dream his dream; he sees it when he's wide awake. See? Now, that's something God has to do. See, he sees what's going."
"A prophet foresees way off (See?) the things that is coming. He sees the cup of God's wrath, full, before it is filled. See? He can say, "THUS SAITH THE LORD. God will destroy this city except you repent." Why? He's an eagle. He rides way in yonder. See? And he looks way off there, and he sees that cup of wrath poured out. That's what the prophets look at. He ain't looking what's going on here; he's looking yonder. He's saying, "It's a-coming." He can go so high till he can see that shade. He said, "The world will be . . . darkness and gross darkness." He's up high enough, the sun's shining now, but he sees that shade coming, and he's saying what he's looking at. It ain't here yet, but it'll sure be here. That's right. It's going to be here, gross darkness upon the people. He knows it's coming, years away, yet he sees it" (Warning then Judgment, p. 17:104-109).
Brethren, whatever your situation "Do not strike My anointed, and do My prophets no harm" (I Chronicles 16:22; Psalm 105:15). "Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the Word and doctrine. . . Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses. Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. I charge you before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that you observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality" (I Timothy 5:17, 19-21; Hebrews 13:7).
Jesus said, "The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed: nor will men say, Look, here it is! Or, There! For the kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:20-21). nl835.htm
