Bible Believers' Newsletter 766
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
We greet you in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we appreciate your fellowship in God's unchanging Word.
Jesus said, "You have not chosen Me but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you will ask of the Father in My Name, He may give it you. These things I command you, that you love one another" (John 15:16-17).
Well-traveled Lonnie Jenkins, perhaps the most popular minister in the circle of this Message, died on December 7. There are many things we do not understand in this life but "we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He did predestinate, He also called: and whom He called, He also justified: and whom He justified, He has also glorified" (Romans 8:29-30).
Once again we have two contributing authors; archaeologist Jonathan Gray shares an interesting article on the colour of a man's skin in which he explains how in just one generation we could produce all the racial colours in the world. As it happens, mankind actually has only one skin color. That color shows up as different shades in proportion to the amount of melanin in the skin. Melanin is a coloring compound that protects our bodies by absorbing ultra-violet (UV) radiation from sunlight which falls on the skin. This agrees with Brother Branham who said "God is colour-blind" concerning the colour of a man's skin, and it sinks the racial prejudice of 'Rambam,' Jewry's greatest sage Moses Maimonides, Zionism and associated cults such as Mormonism, British Israelism and Christian Identity (so-called).
Pastor Dean Gilchrist's article follows wherein he types Boaz as Christ, "the Voice of the Archangel" (I Thessalonians 4:16) lovingly whispering His secrets to the heart 'Ruth' of His end-time Bride.
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.

Conservatives in Liberal Media embrace Cultural Surrender
December 11, 2012 As American conservatives contemplate the future of the Republican Party in the face of President Obama's Marxist onslaught and reelection, the rapid deterioration of the British Conservative Party stands as proof that the situation could get far worse. British conservatives lead the British government as members of a coalition and are pushing legislation for what they euphemistically dub "Equal Civil Marriage"—gay marriage. They think this is the key to being politically relevant and winning elections.
Here in the US, former Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman took to the pages of The Wall Street Journal on November 21 to make the "conservative case" for backing gay marriage . . . and announced that he was a homosexual in August of 2010. He has since launched a "Project Right Side" to make the "conservative" case for gay marriage. . .
The American Spectator . . . says the British Conservative Party has "stopped trying to turn the clock back to a supposedly golden age of God-fearing, two-parent families" and has become "open, diverse, accepting, individualistic, and multi-cultural." According to this logic, American conservatives should applaud the fact that, on December 1, the first same-sex couple was "married" in the West Point Cadet Chapel of our nation's military academy. This is a consequence of Obama's gays-in-the-military policy. . . Full story: newswithviews.com
Comment: "Blind leaders of the blind" cannot see this was the LAST sign Jesus promised us Gentiles before the end of our dispensation: "as it was in the days of Lot . . . the Son of man IS revealed [by the Messianic sign] . . . the same yesterday, and today, and foreverdiscerning the thoughts and intents of the heart, raising the dead, casting out demons, healing cancer, restoring sight to the blind, hearing and speech to deaf mutes, and making cripples whole" (Luke 17:28-30; Hebrews 13:8; 4:12). As Israel called the works of God "Beelzebub" and crucified Him because He fulfilled Scripture and not their false anticipation for His third Coming, religious Gentile know-alls also seeking His third Coming reject His Second or 'parousia' Coming, call the works of God Satanic and "crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh" (Luke 12:10; Hebrews 6:6).
The Secret Team
By L. FLETCHER PROUTY Col., U.S. Air Force (Ret.)
The CIA and its allies in control of the United States and the world. Like it or not, we now live in a new age of "One World." This is the age of global companies, of global communications and transport, of global food supply and finance and . . . just around the comer . . . global accommodation of political systems. In this sense, there are no home markets, no isolated markets and no markets outside the global network. It is time to face the fact that true national sovereignty no longer exists. We live in a world of big business, big lawyers, big bankers, even bigger moneymen and big politicians. It is the world of "The Secret Team."
In such a world, the Secret Team is a dominant power. It is neither military nor police. It is covert, and the best (or worst) of both. It gets the job done whether it has political authorization and direction, or not. It is independent. It is lawless.
From President to Ambassador, Cabinet Officer to Commanding General, and from Senator to executive assistant . . . In this influential coterie one of the most interesting and effective roles is that played by the behind the scenes, faceless, nameless, ubiquitous briefing officer. . . For nine consecutive, long years during those crucial days from 1955 through January 1, 1964, I was one of those briefing officers . . . It was my job not only to brief these men, but to brief them from the point of view of the CIA so that I might win approval of the projects presented and of the accompanying requests for support from the military in terms of money, manpower, facilities, and materials . . .

'Military Voyeurism' or Invasion of Syria? French Special Forces team up with Foreign Backed Terrorists
December 8, 2012 A report carried by French paper Le Figaro on Friday indicates that "Their main task was to know who controls the battlegrounds around Damascus." It seems that a West-orchestrated plan to invade the country is under way . . . the French government wants to know the "operational capacity of each group" and their "political colors."
To make matters worse, NATO has agreed to deploy Patriot missiles on the Syria-Turkey border under the pretense of defending Turkey as Britain has warned Syria of 'serious consequences' if the regime used chemical weapons. All the pieces of the puzzle are being meticulously put together by the 'foes of Syria' to lend a cloak of legitimacy to an imminent invasion of the country . . .
It is cruel but highly likely that West may provide the militants with chemical weapons so they may use them against the Syrians and shift the blame on the Syria government so that they can carry on with their long-though-out plan of invading the country. . . The sad truth is that they have already formed their coalition against Syria with even Israel being part of this coalition. According to Hebrew-language Maariv newspaper, Tel Aviv is preparing for such a scenario amid increasing speculation that the US military will intervene in Syria "within days" if chemical weapons are used. . .

Comment: Marking abandonment of the last shred of pretense of observing the rule of law, the Nobel Peace Prize winning EU Foreign Ministers met with the leader of the Syrian insurgency in Brussels and declared these almost entirely non-Syrian cutthroat mercenaries, funded, advised and armed by NATO, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and supported by 'City of London' lap dogs like Australia the "sole representative of the Syrian people".
"Beware the Ides of March" said the soothsayer, warning Julius Caesar of his death. It was a festive day dedicated to the god Mars on which a military parade was held. The Ides of Nisan will mark the end of the Gentile dispensation and call victorious military parades against Israel and the United States.
Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice Iraq has no WMD's and is not a Threat
February & July, 2001 Colin Powell states clearly in February 2001, that Iraq is in no position to pose any threat to the US and has no weapons of mass destruction. Full story: youtube.com
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, appearing on the June 10, 2007, edition of "Meet The Press," reiterated and expanded on his claim that he was misled by unknown forces in the intelligence community who failed to reveal vital information to him before his infamous February 5, 2003, speech before the United Nations proclaiming proof of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction (WMD) programs. Full story: youtube.com
Comment: The former chief of staff to US Secretary of State Colin Powell, Col. Lawrence Wilkerson (US Army-ret.), for instance, has just denounced as "preposterous" the present British and US claims that Syrian President Assad is preparing to use chemical weapons against his own people.
Wilkerson was Powell's chief of staff when Powell was set up to present to the UN on 5 February 2003 the fraudulent "evidence" of Iraq's alleged weapons of mass destruction (Wilkerson prepared the graphics Powell used in his presentation to illustrate the claims later revealed to be entirely fabricated, by a source called "Curveball"). Powell later called his presentation—based upon evidence supplied by Tony Blair's government—"the worst mistake of my career."
In an interview with Russia Today 8 December Col. Wilkerson sharply rebuffed the charges that Syria is preparing to use chemical weapons against its own population. Wilkerson's remarks appeared as UK Foreign Secretary William Hague escalated the WMD propaganda about Syria in comments to reporters on the sidelines of the International Institute for Strategic Studies' 8th Annual Regional Security Summit in Manama, Bahrain (which was also attended by Australia's Kevin Rudd, himself a veteran of the WMD lies from 2002-03). . .

Israel's Doomsday E-1 Settlement. Diabolical Encroachment to Prospective Palestinian State
December 5, 2012 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has definitely crossed an international red line to vindicate a swift and firm rejection from Israel's closest allies when he announced plans recently to build a new settlement on a corridor of occupied Palestinian land in East Jerusalem, which will render any prospective Palestinian contiguous state territorially impossible . . . the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and the United Nations called on Israel to "rescind," "reconsider," "reverse" its plans, "go back on them," "exercise restraint" and "eliminate obstacles to the peace talks with Palestine."
Netanyahu's defiance and the Palestinian leadership's decision will both put the credibility of all the five permanent members of the UN Security Council to an historic test: They either decide to act on their own words or their inaction will inevitably leave the Palestinians with the only option of defending their very existence by all the means available to them.
For Palestinians, 'to be or not to be' has become an existential issue that could no longer be entrusted to international community. . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
US Congress imports 100,000 Immigrants every 30 Days
December 7, 2012 Last month, in November our US Congress imported 100,000 legal immigrants into America. This month, December 2012, our 435 citizen-representatives in Congress will bestow another 100,000 legal immigrants upon our shores, into our communities, into our schools and into our job market with green cards. Whether they can speak English, benefit this country with a skill or not, or are compatible with a 21st century culture—doesn't matter. Congress piles them into this country because it's been doing it for the past 47 years. And not 1,000 Americans give it a second glance, sneeze or thought.
Our US congress imports and has imported 100,000 legal immigrants into our country every 30 days, of every month, of every year, of every decade since 1965. That continued importation of an endless armada of humanity added 100 million people to our country in the last 47 years. That same Congress will add another 100 million immigrants to our country within the next three decades, give or take a few years. US Census Bureau projects an addition of 100 million people to our country by 2035, a scant 23 years from now and 138 million by 2050—a mere 38 years from now. That's a total of all legal, illegal, chain migration and their babies—immigrants landing in America.
Congress continues importing those 100,000 immigrants each month in light of our own 14 million unemployed, crumbling infrastructure, degrading educational systems and our failing cities and erratic environment, i.e., drought, food costs, water shortages and lowering standard of living of the middle class. . . This 10 minute demonstration shows Americans the results of unending mass immigration on the quality of life and sustainability for future generations: in a few words "Mind boggling!" . . .

Comment: Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Noah so shall it be at the [parousia] Coming of the Son of man . . . And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them lovers of all which they chose." Multiculturalism is accursed by the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; this repetition of the original sin foretold by Jesus Messiah (Matthew 24:37; Genesis 6:1-4) was announced by Rabbi Emanuel Rabinovich before a special meeting of the Emergency Council of European Rabbis in Budapest on January 12, 1952 concerning progress towards their NWO.
UN asks for Control over the World's Internet
December 6, 2012 At a conference in Dubai this week, the ITU members decided to adopt the Y.2770 standard for deep packet inspection . . . implementing deep-packet inspection, or DPI, on such a global scale will allow authorities to more easily detect the transferring and sharing of copyrighted materials and other protected files by finding a way for administrators to analyze the payload of online transmissions, not just the header data that is normally identified and interpreted . . . On Wednesday, the US House of Representatives unanimously passed a Senate resolution that asks for the American government to oppose any efforts by the United Nations to control the Internet.

What if Your Skin Suddenly Changed?
By Jonathan Gray
Feelin' blue? The hands and face of Jaron Yaltan are a pallid whitelike those of millions of other Englishmen. Only the edges of his ears are different; if you look closely they are brown. This is the sole clueoutwardlyto the fact that Jaron Yaltan is a white man who was born black in Ahmedabad, South India. Suddenly, when he was 60, the brown fell away in huge patches as the rare pigment cell disorder vitiligo changed his colour within the space of six days. It has aroused radical reaction from his former friends.
"This is the white man's burden. I am carrying it now," says Jaron. "And, believe me, it is very heavy."
This brings us to a fascinating question:
If the world was wiped out, except for a single group of survivors, then however could all today's variations in the human race have occurred in just a few thousand years since that time? What about the Australian Aborigines, for example, and the Chinese, and so on?
Frankly, I'll confess that for ages I found this to be a problem for scientific acceptance of a 100 percent Great Flood total wipe-out. That's because I did not know enough about genetics. A better understanding of genetic science may require a change in our thinking. Take skin colour, for example.
If you didn't know, mankind actually has only one skin color. That color shows up as different shades in proportion to the amount of melanin in the skin. Melanin is a coloring compound. Melanin protects our bodies by absorbing ultra-violet (UV) radiation from sunlight which falls on the skin. Darker-skinned people have more melanin, which renders their skin more sunlight resistant. Thus they are better suited to hotter climates. Lighter-skinned people are better suited to a cooler environment.
GOVERNED BY TWO PAIRS OF GENES
Research has shown that there are 19 alleles for skin color, but for the sake of simplicity, let us suppose right now that there are only two genes. John Mackay B.Sc. writes that "if a person from a pure white European background marries a person from a pure black Negro background, their children will be an intermediate brown colour. This brownish colour is called 'mulatto'. If two MULATTOS marry, unlike their parents they DO NOT produce children which have the same color."
"The offspring can be ANY OF NINE COLORS, from pure white through to pure black." Thus "if we started today with one pair of middle-brown colored people (similar to the mulattos), we could produce all the racial colours in the world, NOT IN MILLIONS OF YEARS, NOR IN THOUSANDS OF YEARS, BUT IN ONLY ONE GENERATION." (Ex Nihilo, vol.6, no.4, May, 1984).
Did you get that? In just one generation!
We here have only dealt with 4 alleles for color and have found there can be nine skin shades with those four alleles. Imagine the number of skin shades there can be with 19 alleles!
HOW IT WORKS
A child receives half its genes from each parent. Let's call these genes A and B. The genes have partners, a and b. Genes A and B are good at producing melanin (which darkens the skin). Result: A person with two pairs of genes AA and BB will have darker skin.
Genes a and b both produce less melanin. Result: A person with two pairs of genes aa and bb will have very light skin.
A person with gene pairs Aa and Bb (let's write it as AaBb) will have medium-coloured skin. And so on.
Now, suppose both parents are AaBb (medium-brown).
The mother gives the child two genes for skin colourone from type A or a, the other from B or b. The father likewise gives two genes for skin colourone from type A or a, the other from B or b. So each of these middle-brown parents with AaBb can give his/her children any one of the following pairs of gene combinations: AB, Ab, aB or ab.
For example, suppose each parent passes on the AB combination to the new child. The mother gives the child AB. The father gives the child AB. Result: The child will be born with AABBand thus will be PURE BLACK.
But if both parents pass on the ab combination (the mother giving the child ab; the father giving the child ab), then what? Result: The child will be born with aabband will be PURE WHITE. . . . EVEN THOUGH BOTH PARENTS WERE MEDIUM-BROWN SKINNED!
HOW COLOUR BECOMES PERMANENT
Notice that the PURE BLACK child is born AABBthat is, he has no genes for lightness. If a group of pure black persons is isolated, their offspring will be only black. These children will have lost the ability to be "white".
Likewise, when aabb children marry their own type (pure white) and move away to interbreed only among themselves, they will produce from now on only white offspring. They have lost their ability to be black. They no longer have genes to produce a great deal of melanin.
If we started today with just two MIDDLE-BROWN parents, they could produce extreme racial colors (BLACK and WHITE), in a way that races would have PERMANENTLY DIFFERENT colors.
A fixed middle-brown colour could also be produced. If the original middle-brown parents produce children of either AAbb or aaBB and these offspring move away and interact only with their kind, their descendants will be a fixed middle-brown color.
REVERSING THE PROCESS
Despite marked differences, the races would disappear if total inter-marriage were practised today. There would reappear a brown coloured majority, with a sprinkling of every other shade permitted within the genetic pool.
The genes for Chinese almond eyes, black skin or white, etcetera, would still exist, but the combinations would be different. Interestingly, you can find the characteristics of ANY race in EVERY race. For example, some Europeans have broad, flat noses, and others have short, frizzy hair, but on average Europeans do not have these features. The same sorts of genetic recombinations that have produced skin color variations have produced other body variationsstraight hair, wavy hair, eye shape, eye color, body height, and so on.
We do not know the total number of gene differences which mark off a Negro from a white Dane. One authority considers it unlikely that there are more than six pairs of genes in which the white race differs characteristically from the black (William C. Boyd (Professor of Immunochemistry at Boston School of Medicine), Genetics and the Races of Man, P.200ff)
GENES FOR ALL RACES EXISTED AT THE START
The first man was designed with the best possible combination of skin-color genes for his perfect created environment. The Great Flood radically altered that environment. Evidently, Mr. Noah's family possessed genes for both light and dark skin, dark enough to protect them, yet light enough to ensure sufficient Vitamin D.
ALL RACIAL VARIETIES COULD APPEAR IN JUST ONE GENERATION
From the above data it can be seen that all the known varieties of skin color could come from one pair of mid-brown parents IN ONE GENERATION. In general, racial characteristics are recombinations of pre-existing, created hereditary (genetic) information. They have not evolved and they do not require a long time to become apparent.
Let's be clear on this. There has been no evolution of genes that did not previously exist. All that has occurred is the recombination and degeneration of created genetic information [plus the original sin which was miscegenation between the Serpent and Eve, producing the accursed non-created hybrid Cain and his accursed race].
The splitting up of a large group into many smaller groups who became isolated from each other would provide the ideal condition for the RAPID APPEARANCE of many different racial groups with distinct characteristics.
This is doubtless what occurred. There is overwhelming archaeological evidence for a common origin for all races on this planet. (Jonathan Gray, Dead Men's Secrets, p. 16-19). In Book 3 of this series, we shall touch on the fact of an original common language for the whole human raceand how a dispersion occurred from an area of the Middle East. The biblical account of this event (supported by many ancient traditions of nations everywhere) fits the evidence well. The scattering of mankind shortly after the Great Flood, when their language was suddenly confused, was the catalyst that produced the variations now seen.
IT HAS NOT TAKEN COUNTLESS MILLENNIA TO PRODUCE THE DIFFERENCES WE SEE TODAY
Before leaving this question, it may be of interest to note a comment by Professor William C. Boyd, Professor of Immunochemistry at the Boston University School of Medicine:
"We should not be surprised if identical genes crop up in all corners of the earth, or if the over-all racial differences we detect prove to be small. We do not know the total number of gene differences which mark off a Negro of the Alur tribe in the Belgian Congo from a white native of Haderslev, Denmark."
"Glass has suggested that the number of gene differences even in such a case is probably small. Besides a few genes for skin colour, he thinks that there may be a dominant gene for kinky hair and a pair or two of genes for facial features. He considers it unlikely that there are more than six pairs of genes in which the white race differs characteristically from the black."
"This estimate errs somewhat on the small side, in the opinion of the present writer. Probably, however, it is of the right order of magnitude, and any outraged conviction that the difference between the two races must be much greater than this, which some persons might feel, is likely to be based on emotional, rather than rational, factors" (William C. Boyd, Genetics and the Races of Man, p. 200f).
The differences did not take countless ages to produce. The same may be said for the numerous species of every plant and animal form on earth. That is a plain genetic fact.
Behold a Woman Lay at His Feet
It was midnight when Boaz the lord of the harvest [a type of Christ] awoke to realize a woman laying at his feet, "who art thou?" he asked her, "I am Ruth [a type of the Gentile Bride] thine handmaid: spread therefore thy skirt over thine handmaid; for thou art a near kinsman".
That day had been a long one for Boaz; it was the very end of the barley harvest season. After supper that evening he went and laid himself down by a heap of corn to rest for the night; he felt satisfied and merry in his heart: it wasn't uncommon for a man to sleep in the field or threshing floor near his harvest in order to protect it from thieves.
Ruth had secretly watched him and noted where he had lain, then after she was convinced that he had fallen asleep she crept up and uncovered his feet and had laid herself down, she had done all this at the instruction of her mother-in-law, Naomi.
Boaz awoke at midnight and behold a woman lay at his feet, Ruth requested that he spread his skirt over her, this was a direct request for marriage, he then spoke kindly to her, "thou art a virtuous woman," then in the darkness he revealed his secret plan of redemption to her, and all this time she lay at his feet, she was receiving instruction and revelation from him.
"Tarry this night" he said to her, and she lay at his feet until the morning: and she rose up before one could know another. And he said, "Let it not be known that a woman came into the floor," in other words, this event that has taken place between the midnight hour and the dawning of the new day was to be kept a secret between Boaz and Ruth. It was the mystery of his love secrets and redemptive plan.
Another woman that received redemption in her midnight hour was the woman that washed Jesus feet at Simon's house; she also was positioned at the feet of Christ when she received her promise of forgiveness and redemption.
Martha's sister Mary also sat at Jesus' feet, and Jesus said that she had chosen the better part; she was blessed with the privilege of hearing the articulation of gracious and precious words that proceeded from her Lord and Masters mouth.
We see John [who represented the end-time Bride] in the Book of Revelation chapter one, falling down at the feet of Jesus to receive instruction and the revelation of redemption; he saw his name revealed in the Lamb's Book of Life. The term "at ones feet" signifies a humble spirit in the attitude of teachable submission with willingness to receive instruction under a great master teacher for the purpose of receiving instruction with the objective of emulating his wisdom, skill and understanding that in time and with experience he might attain to the authority and reputation of the master.
The Voice of instruction and revelation in this last age can only be understood and comprehended from one position, and that is from the position of humility at the feet of the revealed word for this hour. God sent His revelation through a vessel that was so humble and common that multitudes simply could not get low enough to position themselves at the feet of Christ to hear his tender Words of redemptive love and comfort.
Ruth followed the instructions of Naomi who represented the Old Testament teachings whose shadows and types instructed Ruth [the Bride in this hour] how to approach Christ and the appropriate position she should adopt in order to receive revelation concerning her redemption.
The very first Message in The Revelation of the Seven Seals that Brother Branham delivered in March 1963 was "God in Simplicity," showing that in order to hear from Christ you will must place yourself in a position of humility at His feet.
Behold, a woman lay at his feet; that is our privilege in this hour, to lay and rest at Christ's feet in anticipation of the marriage supper of the Lamb, covered by the robe of His righteousness, and hearing His voice of love and instruction through revelation that brings to us "the peace of God, which passes all understanding, keep our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus" in this world's midnight hour of darkness and uncertainty.
Remain at His feet until the morning breaks eternal bright and fair, and on that resurrection morning the dead in Christ will rise first, and we which are alive and remain shall be caught up to meet Him in the air, and so shall we ever be with Christ our Boaz, the Lord of the great harvest time.
Oh I want to see Him, look upon His face, there to sing forever of His saving grace. May we always stay humble in our attitude towards the Message that God has given us, and cover ourselves with the garment of His righteousness and remain at His feet until the dawning of the new day.
May the love of the Word of Life be established in your hearts is my prayer. nl766.htm
