Bible Believers' Newsletter 763
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we extend an especial welcome to new subscribers and encourage you to make full use of the Christian resources on the Church Website.
I remind subscribers that our sister Church in Owerri, Nigeria will be holding her Africa Convention from December 22 to 25. The theme of the Meetings will be "Time is at Hand".
Last week US Congressman Ron Paul delivered his farewell speech to the House of Representatives: forty-eight minutes of commonsense. A transcript and audio may be resourced from the thedailybell website. Brother Branham said, "The world is going insane," and Dr. Paul's address confirmed the US government has gone berserk. The god of this evil age is leading Jewish President Obama and megalomaniac Israeli psychopath Netanyahufollowed like lemmings over the "fiscal cliff" into the 'hot stage' of the ongoing World War III by nations of blind Laodiceans.
Jesus and His disciples were not Jews by religion or residence as they lived in Galilee, not Judea. Indeed the word Jew did not enter the Bible until the latter part of the eighteenth century and the meaning of this modern word is contrary to the two words it has replaced. Jesus deigned to walk openly in Jerusalem but went secretly "For fear of the Jews" who were principally EdomitesHittites and CanaanitesIsrael's Messiah called "children of hell" (Matthew 23:15). Israelis are seldom Israelites but non-Semitic Khazars whose forebears followed Bulan, their chagan or king, when in AD740 he converted to Talmudic Judaismthe antithesis to Yahweh Torah, the Law and the Prophets. Since 1948 the world has watched as their descendants dispossess and murder or exile the native Israelites and Semitic Palestinians.
God is not mocked: all things work together for good to them that love God, who are the called according to His purpose. Today's 'strangers' have prepared the ground and built the infrastructure for the soon return of Israelites to the land of the Covenant as their Hittite and Canaanite kinsmen sowed the plants and built the infrastructure Israel inherited under Joshua. God's prophets Joel 2:30-32, Zechariah 14:1-4, Jesus Messiah (Matthew 24:3, 22:31; Revelation 1:7; 16:19), and William Branham (Acts 1:9-11) prophesied that when God's "Pillar of Fire" manifests over the Mount of Olives it will signal the utter defeat of the Israeli imposters and the termination of the menace of the cowardly IDF. The rogue United States will also be invaded and occupied. And at that time there will be a mass exodus of non-Semitic anti-Semitic self-styled Jews from Israel, followed by the return of genuine blood Israelites in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week.
The hubristic wrath of unbelieving scoundrels the likes of Jewish President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and their godless "Pillar of Cloud" campaign of genocide is fulfilling Bible prophecy, hastening the day, and they know it not.
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott
The US-Israeli Attack on Gaza
November 20, 2012 The Western media in chorus has described the Israeli attack on Gaza as an ad hoc IDF-led counterterrorism operation, launched on the grounds of "self defense" in response to Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel.
While reports acknowledge that president Obama, in the wake of the November 6 elections, had granted a "Green Light" to Tel Aviv, the central issue does not pertain to Washington's support but rather to the direct involvement of the US government and military in the planning and implementation of the attack on Gaza.
There is evidence that Operation "Pillar of Cloud" was implemented in close liaison with Washington in the context of the broader process of allied military planning. Senior US military officials were on location in Israel working with their IDF counterparts in the days leading up to the attack.
Operation "Pillar of Cloud" was launched on the 14th of November, exactly one week after the US presidential elections. It was slated to be launched irrespective of the outcome of the US elections. The first action was the targeted assassination of the leader of Hamas' military wing Ahmed Jabari. The operation has since evolved towards a generalized bombing campaign and ground invasion involving the announced deployment of some 75,000 Israeli troops. . .
In the context of the war games, Hamas and Hezbollah are identified as "nearby enemies" and allies of Iran . . . The visit of the Emir of Qatar to Gaza at the very outset of the US-Israel joint war games has all the appearances of a US-led covert operation. Qatar is a US sponsored puppet regime. It has a close relationship to both the US and NATO in both intelligence and military affairs, while also channeling financial aid to Hamas.
According to one report: "the Emir of Qatar provided intelligence to the Israelis which was used in the targeted bombings of key Hamas government buildings" (Fars New, November 17, 2012). Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: The ruling Qatar family are of course Jews.
Sources close to the Israeli military have repeatedly told EIR that such an attack demands the elimination of both Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in southern Lebanon as prerequisite. This is the only way to subdue retaliatory attacks against Israel when they attack Iran.
In an interview appearing in the December 11 issue of the Italian daily, Corriere della Sera, Arafat said, 'We are doing everything to stop the violence. But Hamas is a creature of Israel, which at the time of Prime Minister Shamir, gave them money . . . Even [former Prime Minister Yitzhak] Rabin ended up admitting it, when I charged him with it, in the presence of [Egyptian President Hosni] Mubarak." In another interview in the Italian weekly L'Espresso, Arafat said Israel's "aim was to create an organisation antagonistic to the PLO. They received financing and training from Israel. They have continued to benefit from permits and authorisations . . . Rabin himself defined it as a fatal error" (See Newsletter 208, 278, 291, 294, and more. Israel's motto for 'defense' is the Talmudic imperative: "By DECEPTION Thou shalt do War").
Just hours before Israel assassinated Hamas commander Ahmed Jabari on Tuesday, he received the draft proposal of a permanent truce agreement with Israel, which included mechanisms for maintaining the cease-fire in the case of a flare-up between Israel and the factions in the Gaza Strip. But Israel approved the airstrike anyways, choosing escalation over resolution.
The 'hot stage' of World War III will divert attention from the criminal activities of the international banksters and enable them in partnership with the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church to establish Lucifer's totalitarian one world government.
When Everything You know is Not True
October 1, 2012 Miko Peled is a peace activist who dares to say in public what others still choose to deny. He has credibility, so when he debunks myths that Jews around the world hold with blind loyalty, people listen.
Miko was born in Jerusalem in 1961 into a well known Zionist family. His grandfather, Dr. Avraham Katsnelson was a Zionist leader who signed the Israeli Declaration of Independence. His father, Matti Peled was a young officer in the war of 1948 and a general in the 1967 war when Israel conquered the West Bank, Gaza, Golan Heights and Sinai. Full story: youtube.com
Comment: Miko Peled espouses the commonsense one state solution and echoes the sentiments and some of the truths of President Ahmadinejad of Iran concerning the criminal Zionist philosophy. Of course Peled cannot expose the BIG LIE of the three mythical holocausts of 18 million Jews that Zionists have claimed for the twentieth century because affirming a holocaust of six million so-called Jews in World War II is a Jew's license to live and work. On November 17, 2012 another brave Israeli Soldier, Yonatan Shapira, spoke out on the BBC about the Zionist Israeli government's crimes.
Mind: the Matrix of All Matter
"As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear-headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter" (Max Planck, The Nature of Matter, a speech he made in 1944 in Florence, Italy. Max Planck is regarded as one of the founders of quantum mechanics. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918).
New Euro Notes to show Tragic Princess
November 9, 2012 In Greek mythology, the Phoenician princess Europa was abducted and raped by the king of the gods, Zeus . . . She will first appear on the €5 note in May, with other notes introduced in ascending order in the next few years. Europa's face will be shown as a watermark and as a hologram. Until now, euro notes carried pictures of windows and doors in various architectural styles in a symbol of openness designed not to offend national sensibilities . . .
In April, an international police sting in Bogota, Colombia dismantled a counterfeit print shop and depot manufacturing €50 and €100 bills. Europol, the EU's police agency, based in The Hague, said authorities seized over €19 million in counterfeit money in Columbia alone since 2006. Full story: euobserver.com

The Killing Fields of America Infants, Babies, Teens
November 16, 2012 I want you to go look at this list of the six most "popular" anti-depressant drugs (Prozac, Luvox, Ritalin, Paxil, Zanax, Lexapro), their side effects, and then come back here. People really need to look at what those pills do to a human body. Take a pill for depression which causes suicidal thoughts, violence or aggression. Insane. What's so frightening is the number of people on themsome 25 MILLIONincluding children and teens!
Antidepressant prescribing has risen nearly 400% since 1988. "Fears of overprescribing have also centered on young peopleparticularly given data suggesting that some of the medications can increase suicide risk among teensbut researchers found that only 2.8% of boys and 4.6% of girls ages 12 to 17 took antidepressants. . .
Prescriptions for Antidepressants Increasing among Individuals with no Psychiatric Diagnosis . . . "Nearly four out of every five antidepressant prescriptions are written by non-psychiatrist providers" . . .
A drugged America: "As these new CDC data show, 11 percent of Americans aged 12 and older (3.7 percent of youth between 12 and 17) report taking antidepressants. Last year, antidepressants were the second most commonly prescribed medications, right after drugs to lower cholesterol. About 254 million prescriptions were written for them, resulting in nearly $10 billion in costs. . . Full story: newswithviews.com

The 7th Circuit creates Absolute Immunity for Military Torturing Civilians
November 15, 2012 On Wednesday, the US 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago overturned an earlier decision of a three-judge panel of the 7th Circuit and in an 8-3 decision ruled that two American citizens cannot sue former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and others over torture in Iraq. The two men, Donald Vance and Nathan Ertel had alleged that they were tortured by the US military in Iraq, and Rumsfeld and others in the military chain of command had developed, authorized and used harsh interrogation techniques against them. Earlier, in similar cases, both the 4th Circuit and the District of Columbia Circuit have rejected suits for damages against US officials over allegations of torture.
In the instant case, the two complainants used to work for a private security company in Iraq, in 2006. They became concerned over illegal bribery and other corruption in the firm and they notified and cooperated with the US authorities. However, when they tried to act as whistleblowers against the private security firm, they were taken into custody by US military forces and then taken to Camp Cropper near the airport in Baghdad. They allege that at Camp Cropper, they were subjected to harsh interrogation techniques and physical and emotional abuse.
Months later, they were dropped at the airport without any charges, or explanations as to what had happened and why. The men sued seeking unspecified damages holding violation of their constitutional rights with US officials fully aware that they were innocent of any crimes for which they could be imprisoned or held against their will.
Last year, a three-judge panel of the 7th Circuit held that while it may be improbable for Rumsfeld to be personally responsible for such treatment of US citizens, the complainants had sufficiently argued that decisions had to be taken at the highest level of government for them to receive such unusual treatment. However, on Wednesday, while rejecting the suit, the majority observed, "A court cannot say that, if there are too few prosecutions (or other enforcement), and thus too much crime, then the Attorney General or the Secretary of Defense is personally liable to victims of (preventable) crime".
Three judges dissented, holding that the majority opinion was creating a dangerous precedent by postulating immunity for all members of the military, in violation of Supreme Court precedent. In his dissent, Judge David Hamilton said, "This new absolute immunity applies not only to former Secretary Rumsfeld but to all members of the military, including those who were literally hands-on in torturing these plaintiffs."
The lawyer for the complainants said that under the ruling "a civilian can never bring a claim to enforce their rights if they are violated by anyone in the US military." The case is Vance et al v. Rumsfeld et al, US Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, Nos. 10-1687, 10-2442. Full story: jdjournal.com
Comment: Dr. Steve Pieczenik previously said Israel did 9/11. He is now saying that the American Benghazi consulate was illegally torturing both Libyans and foreign nationals. The latter were victims of extraordinary rendition. Presidents Bush and Obama might think these are lawful orders. But international law does not permit consular offices and embassies to be used to illegally kidnap and torture human beings of any nationality.
Dr. Steve Pieczenik is a Psychiatrist with a PhD in International Relations who worked for three American presidents at the State Department. He was in charge of Psyops and worked closely with the US military, black ops and the CIA. He is best known to the public as spy novelist Tom Clancy's business partner. On 11-13-2012 he told Alex Jones that Robert Mueller should be arrested for covering up 9/11.
The US had drones overhead at Benghazi. They had promised US military personnel on the ground in Benghazi that they would be protected from attack by American air power. The Benghazi consulate was under attack for 7 hours before the US ambassador Chris Stevens and the others were killed. Stevens was also part of the State Department operation to illegally run guns and missiles into Syria. For a reason known only to Obama and the person in charge inside the White House a nearby CIA site was told twice to stand down and to not render aid. That nearby CIA site was another torture center. Just how many of these torture and kidnap centers America has is not known. But two Navy Seals on loan to the CIA ran one mile to render assistance to the consulate which was being attacked by men who were ostensibly allies of the US. It seems those mercenary rebels were more loyal to the Saudis and the Israelis.
The White House decision maker could have been Valerie Jarrett, a political hack from Chicago, and/or Tom Donilon, an incompetent National Security advisor. We can only speculate that they wanted Stevens and the other men to die so nobody knew the White House and Hillary Clinton were violating international law. It could have been like the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty in 1967 that killed 34 American sailors who were not rescued until the next day. The Israelis attacked the ship hoping the Americans would respond by attacking Egypt . . .
Dr. Steve Pieczenik said that the Benghazi attack was organized by the Israelis and the Saudis to embarrass Obama prior to the elections. It was an October Surprise designed to help Romney who was too stupid to exploit it. The Saudi and the Israeli intelligence services have a long history of cooperation. The Saudi royal family was appointed by His Majesty's Jewish Government. The Saudi royal family were originally Jewish followers of Sabbatai Tsvi who falsely claimed to be the Messiah. He was what most Americans would call a Satanist. He said that evil was good because it would require the Jewish God to intervene to end the time of the Gentiles. That explains why he told fathers to impregnate their daughters. Half of all Jews accepted him and another false Messiah Rabbi Jacob Frank. The Ottoman Sultan called him to the court. He converted to Islam and set up his own cult called the Donmeh who to this day are powerful within Turkey. The Donmeh were involved both in the Armenian genocide and in the founding of the modern State of Turkey.
This explains why Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Israel are working together against Syria . . .
The Benghazi attack is being spun as a sex scandal by the Jewish-controlled media. General Petraeus' girl friend was a West Point grad who spent a summer in Israel in a cadet exchange program. She is Jewish. [The Lebanese Mrs. Jill Kelley is another honey pot]. Full story: vidrebel.wordpress.com
The Petraeus Affair vs. the CIA's Long Criminal History
November 16, 2012 One of the possible explanations of Petraeus' departure is his stance on Israel which he saw as a liability to US interests in the Middle East: "The enduring hostilities between Israel and some of its neighbors present distinct challenges to our ability to advance our interests in the AOR [Area of Operations]. Israeli-Palestinian tensions often flare into violence and large-scale armed confrontations. The conflict foments anti-American sentiment, due to a perception of US favoritism for Israel. Arab anger over the Palestinian question limits the strength and depth of US partnerships with governments and peoples in the AOR and weakens the legitimacy of moderate regimes in the Arab world. Meanwhile, al-Qaeda and other militant groups exploit that anger to mobilize support. The conflict also gives Iran influence in the Arab world through its clients, Lebanese Hizballah and Hamas." (Ali Abunimah, When Former CIA Chief David Petraeus Enraged the Israel Lobby, Electronic Intifada, November 12, 2012) . . .
Overlooked are secret CIA Benghazi operations. Involved are heavy weapons sent to Syrian opposition fighters. Petraeus left days before his scheduled congressional testimony [. . .] The Benghazi operation is erroneously called a US consulate. It's "a meeting place to coordinate aid for the rebel-led insurgencies in the Middle East." (See Note 1).
Tasks performed include "collaborating with Arab countries on the recruitment of fightersincluding jihadiststo target Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria. "Consulate designation provides cover. Obama and Clinton call the post a "US mission." The State Department lists no consulate in Benghazi (Stephen Lendman, Petraeus: Resignation or Sacking?).
Knowing the CIA's shadow history, the cover-up of a secret CIA operation supporting terrorists used as proxy warriors to overthrow a foreign government seems the most likely explanation for Petraeus' departure as Washington's Blog explains:
Whatever the scope of the CIA's operation in Benghaziand whatever the real reason for the resignation of the CIA chiefthe key is our historical and ongoing foreign policy. For decades, the US has backed terrorists for geopolitical ends. The US government has been consistently planning regime change in Syria and Libya for 20 years, and dreamed of regime changeusing false flag terrorfor 50 years. Obama has simply re-packaged Bush and the Neocons' "war on terror" as a series of humanitarian wars. And the US and its allies will do anything to topple Iran . . . and is systematically attempting to pull the legs out from Iran's allies as a way to isolate and weaken that country (Why Did CIA Director Petraeus Resign? Why Was the US Ambassador to Libya Murdered?) . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

UN votes 188-3 to condemn US Embargo against Cuba
November 14, 2012 For the 21st straight year, the United Nations General Assembly voted Tuesday to condemn the United States' 50-year embargo against the small Caribbean island nation of Cuba.
Reuters reports that an overwhelming majority of the world's nations condemned the crippling US embargo. The vote was 188-3, with only the United States, Israel and the tiny Pacific island nation of Palau (population 20,000) voting against the measure. Last year, Washington could not convince any nation besides Israel, which relies heavily upon billions of dollars in annual US military aid, to vote on its side.
Addressing the General Assembly, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez expressed his disappointment in President Barack Obama's failure to work toward lifting the embargo, which he called a "massive, flagrant and systematic violation of the human rights of an entire people" . . . US envoy Ronald Godard . . . accused Cuba's leaders of seeking "an external scapegoat for the island's economic problems" . . . The General Assembly was silent after Godard's speech. Cuban Foreign Minister Rodriguez, on the other hand, received a thunderous ovation following his address. Full story: digitaljournal.com
Comment: Political dissident, linguist and author, MIT professor Noam Chomsky said: "It is amazing and inspiring to see people managing somehow to survive, as essentially caged animals subject to constant, random, sadistic punishment only to humiliate them."

The Jewish Role in the African Slave Trade Lecture by Dr. Tony Martin
March 18, 2011 The 22 Jewish distillers of Newport, Rhode Island made rum which was used to buy Africans at a price of $20 each. These slaves were taken to America and sold for $2,000. That is what this video is about. Those 22 Jewish distillers sold liquor to the Indians who killed white settlers. This resulted in the soldiers and settlers massacring Indians. This Jewish rum trade with American Indians endured for nearly two centuries. After Israel had successfully assassinated President Kennedy heroin was brought into the US in the body bags of dead soldiers. Today, according to court documents, we are allowing the Sinaloa drug cartel and others to bring cocaine and heroin into America. The markup on the sale of Africans was from $20 to $2,000. Think of the markup on opium and heroin as agricultural products which should cost no more than flour.
Today's video deals with the African slave trade but you need to study this part of our history again to understand the attitude of the people who think they own the government. They sent weapons into Mexico which has killed nearly 80,000 people in the last five years. The bankers launder 500 billion dollars a year in political bribes. The bankers steal tens of trillions of dollars and require us to bail out their frauds. They are Hyperinflating our currencies and will soon impoverish everyone reducing billions of us to debt slavery. Think on these facts as you watch our collective history in this video . . . see the predicament into which assimilated Jews have deliberately placed by their leaders. Full story: youtube.com
Comment: There are several articles on the black and white slave trade on our Church Website.
Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God, and His Righteousness
Cartoonist, illustrator and children's story writer Dr. (Theodor) Seuss (Geisel) wrote: "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." Good advice for Christians who are not ashamed to live the Gospel they profess to believe.
Never be ashamed of your Lord and His unchanging, unfailing Word of promise. Don't ever be ashamed of your husband or your wife, your children, or your parents (so long as they are well-behaved) and whatever your occupation may be, work honestly and give of your best that you may be proud of your labours and deserving of self-respect. "Don't be like the heathen, worrying about whether you will have sufficient food or clothing, for they take pride and exercise much care in all of these things and your heavenly Father knows full well your needs. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Don't be anxious about tomorrow, live one day at a time, for He will take care of your tomorrows too" (Matthew 6:31-34).
In Matthew 13:45-46 "Jesus likened the kingdom of heaven to a merchant man seeking precious pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it".
This merchant represents the untiring seeker of Truth, which is Spiritual wisdom here in the figure of "precious pearls." He was a dedicated man, conscientiously searching and striving for the Absolute. Unlike the hired laborer, he takes pleasure in his business, and conducts it with enthusiasm and expectancy. His theological experience was precious to him until he encountered the Person of Christ by revelationthe reality for which he readily surrendered his intellectual learning, history, denominational tradition and esteem among men.
When one possesses and is possessed by Christ he is born-again. So the merchant man became the kingdom of God and His righteousness when Christ entered into him and he possessed the hope of glory. This man was God's elect. In God's foreknowledge he always was a part of the kingdom. When he heard the call he recognized his day and it's Message, discovering who he was and identifying His place in eternity.
The merchant sold his business, forsook his social prestige, his denominational teachings, his intellectual Bible studies and worldly aspirations that he might possess this pearl of great price. Like this priceless pearl, new birth is a rare Spiritual and abiding personal possession to which few attain, yet is freely available to any child of Adam if only they will reach out by faith and take it unto themselves.
Isaiah 55:1-3, "Listen, every one that thirsts, come to the waters, and he who has no money; come, buy, and eat; yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why spend your money on food that has no sustenance? Or work for that which satisfies not? Listen diligently and I'll tell you where you can obtain Spiritual food in due seasonthe present Truth that fattens up the soul. Come to Me with your ears wide open, for the life of your soul is at stake: I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David".
Eternal Life is free. But it is not cheap. Like the pearl of great price its value is beyond estimation and will cost you everything you have or could hope to attain in this life. New birth is a great leveler; it will cost the rich man everything he has acquired, and the beggar what little he has (Galatians 3:28).
In Mark 10:17-23 a man knelt before Jesus and implored, "Good Lord, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal Life? And Jesus said, Why call Me good? There is none good but God. You know the commandments, do not commit adultery, do not kill, do not steal, do not bear false witness, defraud not, honour your father and mother."
"He answered, Lord, from my youth I have never broken a single one of these laws." Even so he knew he did not possess eternal Life.
"Feeling genuine love for the man, Jesus looked him in the eye, and said, One thing you lack. Go and sell whatsoever you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven: and come, take up your cross, and follow Me."
"The man's countenance dropped, and he went sadly away for he had great possessions. Watching him go, Jesus said, it is almost impossible for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God".
Jesus discerned the man's problem and God will not share His glory with another so "if we love the world and the things of the world, the love of God is not in us" (I John 2:15).
What do I need to surrender, Lord, that I may have eternal Life?
What do you own?
Then surrender it. Anything else?
I have a car.
You'll have to surrender that too. Anything else?
I have a wife whom I love.
You'll have to put Me first.
And I have five lovely children and my parents.
You must put Me before them all.
You will have to surrender your friends, your culture, your religion, your ambitionseven your own thinking, in order to receive My thoughts so that My Life can live through you (Philippians 2:5-7).
Luke 14:26-27, "If any man comes to Me, and does not hate his father and mother, and wife and children, his brothers and sisters, and even his own lifein comparison with his attitude toward God, he cannot be My disciple. And whosoever does not carry his own cross, and follow Me, cannot be My disciple".
We are to follow Him, not follow family or neighbors, culture or class, but follow Christ the Word. And if we've given our word we must carry our own cross and honor the obligation to which we have committed ourselves. If we are truly born-again, Christ the Word is the Husband of our soul and we are to treat Him as our Lord which means "Master" or "Ruler over me," even as Sarah called Abraham lord.
The natural marriage types the Spiritual. The Christian wife is to obey her husband in everything. We are not to even flirt with a creed or any strange word.
What if Paul had decided he would follow intellectual reasoning instead of the revealed Word? Paul became a prisoner to the faith. This great student of Gamaliel separated himself from his kinsmen and spent three years in Arabia emptying himself of all of his theological studies, replacing learning with revelation from Above built upon the shadows and types God had revealed to Moses and the Old Testament prophets whereby He inspired the antitype or New Testament to Paul (Galatians 1:17-18). Paul saw that Jehovah of the Old Testament is Jesus of the New. He was certainly no Trinitarian. Neither were any of the apostles and prophets on whose doctrine Jesus is building His Church (Ephesians 2:20).
The love of God was so endearing it transformed Paul's thinking, disproved all of his theological training and dispelled all of his ambitions. His newfound love and liberty imprisoned him to manifesting the living, unfolding revelation from which he could not escape. This is the life-changing experience of every elect believer, "born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which lives and abides forever" (I Peter 2:23).
Like the merchant man who found the pearl of great price, when we find the Absolute we surrender everything in this world to imprison ourselves to the vision. Married to the Word we are one in the faith as a man and his wife are one in the flesh united in common understanding and their sacred vows to one another (John 17:20-22; I Corinthians 2:16).
We have to empty ourselves of everything that is not God so that He may fill us by faith or understanding in His revealed Word. I am not speaking about your lying, smoking, drinking, stealing or your adultery; that is sanctification, just house cleansing. If you are born-again, correctly taught and pastored, your desire for that old sensual life will die. I'm speaking about receiving the deeper love of Christ through the intimacy of His Word living in you. Those hidden mysteries and secret things He whispers only to His beloved; essential precious revelations the non-elect hear only as parables, and scoff, being without understanding.
Paul turned a corner from the Mosaic Law to the New Covenant of grace. That was almost 2,000 years ago now, and Paul's Gospel by which God will judge the world, has been diluted and perverted by myriad man-made traditions that make the Word of God of none effect today. Nevertheless, God will present Christ with a Word Bride who will be in the unity of the faith and manifest the Sons of God in a new wave offering (Leviticus 23:15-21; Romans 8:19; Ephesians 4:13). To this end He sent William Branham whose ministry has restored the faith Paul delivered, finished the mystery of God and introduced the second Coming of the Word (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Acts 3:19-23; Revelation 10:7).
As Paul found following his conversion, we need to unburden ourselves of worldly theology and reasoning against the faith to enjoin our life with "that which is perfect"the fullness of the Word which is Christ, by the perfect faith (I Corinthians 13:10). Since the revelation of the Seven Seals we have the perfect interpretation of God's Word and must neither add to and or take from THUS SAITH THE LORD delivered by God's prophet William Branham who was the "angel" of Revelation 1:1the only man to whom Jesus revealed these things (Revelation 22:6-19).
Jesus Christ was a Mediator only so long as the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals. So long as the Bible was sealed, men were ignorant, and worldwide every minister (including Brother Branham) preached error prior to the revelation of the Seven Seals. It could not be otherwise since no man was worthy to open or understand the Book until Jesus loosed the Seals and revealed their mysteries after His mediatorial Office was fulfilled.
The days of ignorance and 'play church' are past and the soul who does not empty himself of man-made denominational guesswork and receive this end-time Message will be cast into the great tribulation (Malachi 4:5-6; Acts 3:23; Revelation 22:18-19). Since the revelation of the Seven Seals God has been calling the wise and foolish virgin out from Rome and her once Protestant daughters into the unity of the faith by the fullness of the Word we have no need of a mediator.
Christ is no longer a Mediator since the Seals are revealed and God will not receive denominational beliefs today (I Corinthians 13:10). Without a Mediator to intercede for and excuse ignorance they are as vain as Israel's sacrifices, an abomination, a stench in His nostrils (Isaiah 1:10-17; 66:3; Amos 4:10; 5:21-27). Denominational guesswork is rejected in this day; if this is what we offer we too will be rejected because the worshiper is identified with his sacrifice. We must each examine our own selves, whether we are in the faith of Jesus Christ or in denominational hocus-pocus and headed for the Lake of Fire (Revelation 19:20-21).
Deuteronomy 16:1-8 and Isaiah 28:8-13 demonstrate how God revealed a further portion of His Word in each dispensation and ordained the saints to shine that Light. Any traditions from a previous dispensation were to be burnt with fire for His elect must always walk in the Light of the present Truth. The Light He shone in the days of Noah, Moses, Luther, Wesley and the Pentecostals is Darkness today. It is sin and death! Don't try to hold onto Christ with one hand and an Anglican, Methodist, Baptist or Pentecostal tradition with the other. We must burn them with Fire! And let the Holy Spirit lead us into the Light God is shining now!
God, make us prisoners of Jesus Christ and led by the Spirit like Paul. Jesus is the Word. If you're a prisoner to the Word, no denomination can sway you from it and your life will act out what it says do. When you can see that you always were in Christ even before there was anything made that is made, that is the tie post of the soul, and nothing can shake you from that revelation (Revelation 13:8). And when a man predestinated to eternal Life has been born-again by the Word of God, God will add Word upon Word, Word upon Word. Not a denominational creed and then a Word, and more creeds and a Word. Leaven will not mix with his born-again soul. There is only one eternal Life and that is God the Word.
God alone is eternal Life and those born of His Word are His offspring. Jesus Christ is the beginning of God creating Himself a part of this material world, less than 2,000 years ago. Jesus is our elder Brother and we saints are the genes of God's Spirit (Hebrews 2:10-18; Revelation 3:14).
The natural types the spiritual. Our natural birth into this world under Satan's dominion follows nine months after our father's gene as sperm fertilizes the ovum in our mother. Our first birth is a process consisting of three stages. First the water breaks, then the blood, and when we leave our mother's body the spirit of mortal life and our soul unite with our body and we become a living soul. You are your soul. Your body is merely the house in which you your soul lives and contacts this world. Our mortal spirit is like a charge of electricity that powers the body and operates the brain.
Our body is of the earth, earthy. It was formed in iniquity and conceived in sin, and must perish with the world. Our mortal spirit is given by God, but it is not of God and must also perish. It is the foreknown souls of God's elect that Jesus died to redeem.
Redemption is not replacement: to redeem means to "buy back" or "repurchase." Our corruptible flesh will be replaced with a glorified body and our mortal spirit will break up and be replaced by our theophany or angel, while our soul must be redeemed. It is not replaced, just changed from its old husband by fornication with world which is the nature of Satan, the present god of this world, to the nature of God. But before we can be remarried to Christ the Word, our old husband the nature of this world must be dead to us (Romans 7:1-6). We do not receive a new soul but a new nature, Husband or ruler over our soul.
Our Spiritual birth into the Kingdom of Heaven is a process consisting of three stages. Our soul is the part of man that is made in the image and after the likeness of God (Genesis 1:26). It is the feminine of God, and until it mates with and is impregnated by the Word, it is without eternal Life. John 6:63, "My Word is Spirit, it is Life".
Jesus distinguished natural life from Spiritual Life when He told the unbelieving Jews, "No man can come to Me, except the Father which has sent Me draw him to Me (by a clear understanding of His Word, or faith): and at the last day I will cause all such to rise from the dead".
(Praise God! The "last day" is in "the time of the end." And according to Scripture it commenced with the revelation of the Seven Seals between March 17-24, 1963 (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4). This means that Christendom today is apostate as Israel has been since it rejected and crucified Christ at His first Coming. This means that the first resurrection and the manifestation of the Sons of God are at hand).
"It is written in Isaiah 54:13, And all Thy children [the elect] shall be taught of God. Every man who has heard from the Father and has learned the Truth from Him will be drawn or attracted to Me. [Not that any man has actually seen the Father, except He who is of God, He alone has perceived and understood the Father]."
The historical Christ is the positive fulfillment of all previous revelation and knowledge of God and being the Son, Jesus is, in His perfect vision or revelation of God, the absolute Prophet. We must not bend the Scriptures as do the Trinitarians and try to make Jesus a second god. Jesus is the (One) Person of God manifest in the flesh. John 1:18, "No man has visually seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in the heart of the Father, He has declared Him" [or expressed the fullness of His nature and character]. John 3:3, "Except a man be born-again he cannot see understand the Kingdom of God" which is within the heart of every saint as the revealed Word for their day (Luke 17:20-21). See also John 17:6, 26 and 3:13. The Spirit guides into the understanding of God's Word, which is faith (John 16:15), not learning or memorizing what it says which is sweat. Works.
"Not that any man has actually understood the Father [Word], except He which is of God, He alone has perceived and understood the Father." We see or understand not with our eyes or our brain, but with our soul. Even after Christ's resurrection many of His disciples did not believe because they did not fully understand the Scripture. And it was not until many years after Pentecost when Paul had expounded the New Testament that those who were "of God . . . perceived and understood the Father." In the Ephesian Age (AD53-170), certain saints were still "giving heed to Jewish fables."
It took time for the saints to fully turn the corner by emptying themselves of man-made theology so that they could see and enter into the full revelation of the new Message. So is it today, almost fifty years since Christ revealed the Seals and the Church turned another corner few ministers or brethren within the circle of this Message have "actually seen the Father." Although they see Brother Branham was God's prophet and believe his Message they have not seen the revelation of the Message).
"Earnestly I tell you, He that believes on Me has eternal Life [present tense]. I am that Bread of Life. Your fathers ate manna in the wilderness, and are all dead," or eternally separated from God and LOST because of their unbelief in Moses' Message. Like Message people today, they had "the letter without the Spirit".
God's revealed Word is His expression of love to His elect. We must receive His unveiling of Himself into our soul by reciprocal love to quicken and change the nature or desires of our soul from the world to the Word. Only faith or a clear understanding of the revealed Word for our day can quicken our soul to eternal Life and unite us with God for eternity. Faith in that part of the Word imparts His Gene, His Life to our soul.
God's gene or sperm is His Word. His Word is His Spirit expressed in a form we can receive by faith. Once we "see" His Word we begin to become alive to God and dead to the world, whereas previously we were dead to the Word and alive to the world. But that is just the beginning. Multitudes of supposed-to-be Christians are still-born.
The Spiritual birth, like the natural birth consists of a threefold process of justification by grace through faith in the true Oneness of the godhead and what Christ accomplished in redemption, followed by water baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for remission of past sins as Jesus commanded, not in three of His Titles. Next comes sanctification by the Blood. As the bloodstream cleanses and sanctifies out natural bodies of impurities, the Blood of Christ cleanses the Body of Christ by the washing of water by the Word, or faith. The life is in the blood. Jesus' Blood was the spoken Word of God; correction by the Word sanctifies and maintains the Church in holiness. Finally we are quickened by a revelation of the present Truth, and born into our place in the Kingdom. All three steps of grace are required in the Spiritual birth.
God is only redeeming the elect of Adam's fallen race. Jesus is the last Adam. He is no kinsman of Cain, whose father was the Serpent (I John 3:12; 2:13-14). All of Adam's children, his genes, were potentially in him in the Garden of Eden. By God's foreknowledge his genealogy was recorded before creation as the Book of Life (Revelation 17:8). This is the record of our natural birth. God is not presently writing names in that Book, however he is blotting-out names as they cross the line between mercy and judgment and become lost. Those names that remain are "the saved" who will be granted into eternal Life by the saints at the White Throne Judgment.
The genealogy of Jesus Christ was also written from the foundation of the world by God's foreknowledge of who would receive and manifest His genes of the spoken Word for their day. Called the Lamb's Book of Life (Revelation 13:8) it is the record of His elect; our names can never be removed as we are eternal Life, a continuation of the creation of God in Christ, the beginning of the creation of God as Eve was created in and formed as a continuation of the first Adam and not a separate creation like all other female creatures. Together we are God manifest and will one day judge the world, separating "the saved" from "the lost" (Matthew 25:31-33; I Corinthians 6:2).
God's gene is His Word. His Word is His unchanging thought expressed. Therefore God's children are the manifested genes of His Spirit, as Adam's children are the manifested genes of his loins. The elect of God are His foreknowledge of how we would exercise our free moral agency when encountered by the Word for our day. So you who really do have the Spirit of God today were in Christ when He walked the shores of Galilee because the fullness of the godhead was expressed bodily in that Man (Colossians 2:9). God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself.
If you were in God as a gene, an attribute of His Word from the beginning, then you were in Jesus when He raised Lazarus from the dead; you walked with Him, talked with Him and died with Him on Calvary's cross. And when He was raised for our justification, you raised in Him. Now you are sitting in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, communing with Christ, the Word, as it feeds your soul.
If you can see yourself in Christ from the foundation of the world, you are eternal Life. You always were eternal Life, for whatever is "eternal" has neither beginning of time nor ending of days. So you were always a part of God and can never be separated from Him. This revelation is the tie post of the soul (Romans 8:38-39).
The Church of Jesus Christ is built on the faith of the apostles and prophets, not on the Bible-denying man-made creeds of some denomination that is headed for the Lake of Fire. If you are a true gene of God, and if you are truly baptized with the Holy Ghost, you will esteem His Word above your necessary meat, and yearn to live by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
Good manners will follow but first we must see the revelation of His Word, and recognize our position therein. Not the Anglican's place: that part of the Body was fulfilled in 1750, yet millions of blind souls are trying to press in there today. Not the Methodist or Baptist part, their place was filled in 1906, and not the Pentecostal position which was made up in 1963. Unless we can recognize our day and it's Message, there is no way we can be born-again in this day.
The evidence of the Holy Spirit in your soul is to see the present Truth living in you. The Book of Revelation opens with a blessing upon anyone who will sit and listen as it is read. It ends with a curse upon anyone who attempts to add to or diminish from the revelation of the Seven Seals which was the Message of the seventh angel, for now "the time is at hand: the time of the end" is now (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4; 22:10). This is God's last book, and His last word. Any contrary revelation is false prophecy and not of God, because the revelation of the Seven Seals finished the mystery of God and is THUS SAITH THE LORD (Acts 3:21; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7; 22:19).
This is the only Book in the Bible Christ personally endorsed. Think of that. It is the revelation of Himself and the only Book on which He set His seal. God revealed it to Jesus and He revealed it to the seventh angel whom John saw and heard in the Patmos visions as one born out of due time. Jesus put His blessings upon those who will receive it, and His curses upon those who will not receive it.
Before the foundation of the world God set and ordained five different offices of ministry upon particular men He foreknew in order to bring the saints to maturity in the faith so that their lives and testimonies could minister to others outside the Body but who desire to understand what we believe and why we live to edify the brethren and keep the Body clean (Ephesians 4:11-13; 5:26; II Corinthians 3:2).
This is not a "do-it-yourself" Message. God does not work in that way. If you are elect, God has a pastor for you somewhere. Few are called to the fivefold ministry. Attending Bible school and a lifetime pastoring denominational congregations does not place one in God's ministry, or even in the Body of Christ. Only a handful of ancient denominational ministers are born-again today because the dispensation of PART-Word and Christ's mediation ended in 1963 before the opening of the Seals and most of their younger colleagues have either never encountered or failed to recognize their day and its Message, and are impersonating the Word for a day gone by.
Some men try to pick up the Message by a quick read of the transcripts. Others try to preach it by quoting the "letter" of the prophet's Words. This will not work. The Message is the Key that unlocks the hidden mysteries of God's Bible. It was not ever ordained that the Message should interpret the Message. It takes the grace of God and an apprenticeship of kneeology to catch the revelation, place it in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and to preach just that.
