Seed of Two Trees, the Fruit of Diverse Branches
One of our infrequent correspondents is Jonathan Gray of Adelaide. Jonathan is an adventurer, and together with colleagues from other countries, he's dedicated himself to discovering ancient secrets from Bible times. When not engaged in exploration and research, he's busy conducting seminars, writing books, or editing video film of their spectacular discoveries. We discussed his work in an earlier program, and I expect to have him in the studio to review his new book, 'The Curse of The Hatana Gods'.
Here are some of his comments posted on the public conferences.
"One of the most beautiful and romantic of the Pacific islands, is Rotuma. It's a volcanic island fourteen kilometers long. Lying off the usual shipping routes, it's remained unexploited and unspoilt. (Now I couldn't find Rotuma in any encyclopaedia; it was only after some searching that I discovered a tiny dot in the ocean, north west of Fiji).
At one time a race of giants lived here. Numerous skeletal remains bear testimony of former inhabitants up to twelve feet in stature. How they became extinct is not known.
Today, Rotuma is called "Land of tombstones". On the outskirts of each village, and sometimes inside the village, is the "Tamura" or cemetery, containing all sorts and sizes of stone memorials, to which mourners repair at night. Some even sleep there for weeks after the death of relatives.
To alleviate the shortage of burial ground, many of the dead are buried above ground level, and the coffins are surrounded by huge stone slabs. After twenty years or so, when it's considered that a corpse has sufficiently decomposed, the coffin is opened and a newly-deceased body is added to the contents".
In his new book, Jonathan is documenting what he knows of Rotuma's ancient giants. The Bible identifies the giants as Serpent's seed, the descendants of Cain. And God placed enmity between the seed of the Serpent and the seed of Adam. In Genesis chapter six, God said He'd destroy the world by Flood, because of intermarriage between the descendants of Adam and these giants, descended from Cain.
After the Flood that same wickedness repeated. In Genesis chapter ten we're told that the families of the Canaanites spread abroad. These were offspring of an incestuous relationship between Ham and his father's wife. The wife Noah took with him in the Ark is said to be Naamah, the sister of Tubalcain, the Serpent. Clearly, she was not the mother of his three sons. Noah declared that Ham had fathered the illegitimate Canaan.
Since the Fall in the garden of Eden, there've been two lineages. Strange that people who read their Bibles, and even the Talmud, do not see this revelation. The story of the Fall is written in the stars and known by every ancient tribe and tongue, yet educated Western man is so SMART, he can't see it staring him in the face.
One of the Signs Jesus promised for the days of His 'parousia', or the Coming of the fullness of the Word, was that these conditions and circumstances of Genesis 6:1-13 would repeat. Let's list them and see whether this prophecy of Jesus is coming to pass. Have we seen the Signs of the times, yet failed to recognize them? Perhaps they're so commonplace, that Bible warnings are of no significance to us.
Jesus promised there'd be a huge increase in population, and in the beauty of women. Ask yourself, is this true of today? Jesus spoke of immorality -- free love with these women; men co-habiting with whomsoever they chose. And Jesus set a definite time limit before the judgment. It was 120 years in the days of Noah. Today, Jesus said that the generation which saw Israel re-settled in the Promised Land, would not die of old age before judgment.
Jesus said there'd be intermarriage again, between the descendants of Cain and Adam's race "... as it was in the days of Noah". He said men would be corrupt, and fill the earth with violence. That all men, everywhere, would be degenerate, debased, and corrupted from His way of righteousness.
Ask yourself, is this true of today? Did Jesus prophesy the truth, or did He make a mistake. I wonder; was Jesus including Australian politicians? who say they must lie and deceive their constituents. Jesus also said the conditions of Sodom and Gomorrah would repeat in the end-time, and 'as it was in the days of Lot' God would veil Himself behind the flesh of a man and reveal Jesus Christ 'the same yesterday, and today, and forever' by the Messianic Sign - discerning the thoughts and intents of people's hearts. And He did this around the world in the ministry of the late Brother Branham.
We've played tapes on the program demonstrating this last Sign. It can't be denied. How about the conditions of Genesis 6? Jesus said they would repeat. Read the newspapers, go into town. Have all of these conditions of Noah's day reproduced themselves as Jesus said they would? If the answer is yes, then we are the last generation.
'And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle. And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead' (Exodus 12:29-30).
But when God saw Israel under the blood of an innocent lamb, He passed over their house in safety. Israel were under the chemistry of that blood painted on the doorposts. It was a token that they were sanctified. This token was required for all Israel. God said, 'When I see the Token, I'll pass over you'. My, what assurance.
The blood is not the Token today. The Life is the Token. The life of the animal couldn't be the token for Israel, so they applied the literal chemistry of the blood to the lintel of the door.
Today, the Holy Spirit is the Token, the Life of Jesus Christ.
Israel coming out of Egypt was a type of this day. Egypt represents the church, and Israel represented the Bride. As Israel came out of Egypt, so the Bride comes out of the church. The church is down in Egypt -- in the world and in sin.
There are three 'exodus' in the Bible. The first exodus was when Moses led Israel out of Egypt. In the second, Paul led the Church out of Israel. The third exodus is coming to pass today. God is calling His Bride out of the church.
A startling similarity between the first and second exodus is the midnight cry. Matthew 25 speaks of our day. 'At midnight there was a cry made, "Behold, the Bridegroom; come ye out to meet him." Then both wise and foolish virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps' or received correction in the faith (Matthew 25:6-7).
The midnight cry today is the Shout of I Thessalonians 4:16, the Message of the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6, the late William Branham, turning the heart of the children BACK to the faith of their apostolic fathers. I hear It cry, 'Come out of her My people, that you don't partake of her sin, and receive not of her plagues'.
As it was in Egypt, the Token must be on display. The Token is the Life of Christ. 'You are dead and your life is hid with Christ in God' (Colossians 3:3). Sealed in there by the Holy Spirit. And the mind that was in Christ is in you. And Christ, and the Bible, and the Word, is the same. 'In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God'. Then you, and the Word, and God, and Christ, are the same. 'And if you abide in Me, and My Word abide in you, ask what you will, it'll be done'.
Apply the Token, the death angel is already in the land. Churches are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold about God. Naked, wretched, miserable, blind and know it not. It's the midnight hour, there is no future for this sin-cursed world. The blood is not the Token now, it won't work. Don't take any chances, receive the Token, the Life of Jesus Christ. You must have It.
We have so much to be so happy about. God's not dead; He hasn't fallen asleep like the Ten Virgins; He does care for His Own, and He is fulfilling His Word, precisely as It's written. He did send us a prophet in our day with warning before judgment. Christ's question to us today is the same question He asked Israel:- "Will you follow Me, or will you serve the commandments of men"...
We've discovered some amazing things hidden within the pages of our Bibles. We learned that the original sin was not eating an apple. It might be a fairy story Cain believed. When it came to sacrificing a substitute life to God, Cain offered cabbages and apples: fruit and vegetable life. Maybe Cain actually believed Eve found him under a cabbage bush. Abel knew he was born in his mother's blood of his father's blood, that the original sin between Eve and the Serpent produced Cain, and that God requires life for a life. Not oranges and lemons, but a perfect substitute, because everything brings forth of its own kind. So Abel offered a lamb of the first year without spot or blemish, signifying the future sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the Lamb that takes away the sin of the world.
The Bible said, 'by faith Abel offered a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain'. God's Law of reproduction states that everything brings forth after its own kind. Faithful Abel was like his father Adam, who was the son of God. Cain was an intellectual and without faith. Goes to prove his Pappy wasn't Adam. He was just like his father, the incarnate Serpent -- a liar and murderer. (That Serpent was not a snake. He was a man-like creature, until God changed every bone in his body and set him on his belly).
The Bible says, 'God's Word is Spirit, It is Life' (John 6:63). Cain could not possibly have been the Word because his fruits were death. Jesus, Who is the Tree of Life, said, 'you can tell a tree by its fruits'.
Let's take this a step further. We know that natural things are only a type of the Spiritual. As God told Moses, 'See that you make the Tabernacle after the pattern of the things I showed you on the Mount' (Exodus 25:40). And we know we're to live by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God, neither adding to nor taking from It.
God's Word is perfect. When men add to or take from It, It's no longer His Word. And cannot impart His eternal Life. Can you see this?
The life of an animal, say a man or a serpent, is imparted by the sperm through physical intimacy. God told man to multiply and fill the earth. And the Bible is the story of God changing His Form, or unfolding Himself from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts, to the manifestation of those thoughts in the glorified flesh of His Family. God is also multiplying by having children of His Own. But God is not a man that he should lie, and His children are not born by sex, they're born by faith, or a clear understanding of His revealed Word. Spiritual intimacy.
Eve's first-born was an illegitimate child by adultery. Cain was not Adam's son. Not Adam's seed. And if you and I are the children of God, we are the offspring of His Seed by faith. The spoken Word is the original Seed. But when men come along and add to, or take away from that unchanging Word, there's no way It can bring forth Sons to God.
Changing God's Word, or impure worship, is called Spiritual fornication in the Bible. It's the spirit that brought forth Cain. It IS the spirit of organization. And all fornicators will have their place in the Lake of Fire. Yes sir, the whore and her daughters will be in the Lake of Fire.
The ten virgins of Matthew 25 were virgins to the Word. They were pure and chaste in their lives through their faith. God's children are not born of Spiritual fornication or man-made religion, but of faith in the revealed Word for their day.
We learned that God's already manifested the Sign of His parousia promised in Matthew 24. And as the angels said to His disciples in Acts chapter one where a Cloud received Him up out of sight, 'This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you have seen Him go into heaven'. Now, it was not a natural Cloud that translated Jesus. It was the shekinah, or cloud of glory, the Pillar of Fire. And it's already repeated in these last days.
I have photographs of this Sign which God fulfilled on February 28, 1963. This cloud was 27 miles high, and thirty miles across by fifty miles long, shaped like Hoffman's famous painting, 'Christ at Thirty-three', and wigged like a Judge, as foretold in Daniel chapter seven, and Revelation chapter one.(Individual photographs may be downloaded (photos.htm), or the self-executing slide show faithnow.arj).
Now I realize many people will say, 'How come I don't know about this'? The disciples asked Jesus the same question in Matthew 17, 'Why then say the scribes that Elijah must first come'? Jesus went on to describe the Elijah of our day, William Branham, whose ministry 'restored all things', and the Elijah of their day, John the Baptist, who 'laid the ax to the root of Jewish denominational teachings and prepared the way for the Word'. They'd been John's disciples, yet they did not recognize that he was their Elijah.
God does not leave Himself without a witness. Jesus said, 'Seek and you shall find, ask and It shall be given unto you'. We have to search the scriptures to find out what God promised for our day then look for that.
Take for instance this Sign of His parousia, the huge cloud in the form of the head of Jesus that appeared in 1963. You can do what I did, check the encyclopaedias, magazines, and books which describe it. There's a good start. I confirmed much of my information in the Mitchell and Macquarie University Libraries.
What a wonderful world, but what strange people live here. Those who know everything, tell us Australia is the world's wealthiest country. Call me a cynic if you will, but isn't our wealth owned, and controlled, by foreigners?
Is it only politicians who say they must lie and deceive that tell us we're the 'clever Country'? Are we the conceited country?
If we divided our foreign-owned wealth by our citizens -- even our foreign population would be millionaires. Praise God! I feel rich! Hundreds of thousands of old Australians, living below the poverty line are really millionaires, and they don't know it! Those boat people, steering a course for this 'land of milk and honey', had better 'bring their own cows and bees'.
Those planning the UN Police State, called the NWO, must know how wealthy Australians are. They declared this the year to eliminate poverty. They want to divide your goods with the poor. Then we'll all have nothing, and be easier to control.
Their absolutely unscriptural scheme is to create an international level playing field. But Jesus said, the poor will always be with us; God's looking for Spiritual riches. The Bible instructs us to be a separated people. Like the original United States, we should be friendly with all, have alliances with none. Be MONO-cultural, and also, ONE race.
Who are these unelected men at the TOP of the level playing field? How did they get there? Why do we suffer thugs, who devour whole countries by debt, to rule over us? They hate Jesus Christ, and anything to do with Christianity. Why did we permit them to set up a UN? Why did we tolerate men who engineered and grew rich on wars which killed our fathers and our forefathers? If we are the Clever Country, why did we enslave our nation to these men, whose purpose is to use us like so many human cattle?
Our national heritage has been sold for a song, or mortgaged. Our Christian heritage was lost by ministers, who compromised the Word with the world. Their legacy is a generation of atomic fodder!
Praise God! Who sent us a GENUINE prophet in these last days to RESTORE the apostolic faith, FINISH the mystery of God, and call His people OUT of this mess, for the MANIFESTATION of the Sons of God, and the eternal land of the Millennium. radioa19.html
