"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship.
We have two main articles today. "Materialistic Humanism: The World-View of Our Era" by Brothers Francis A. Schaeffer and C. Everett Koop, followed by "The Kinsman Redeemer," the beautiful love story of Ruth, an allegorical exposition of the law of redemption typing Israel, Jesus Christ and God's "chosen people"His Gentile Bride.
Brother Bud Robinson wrote, "About this time in my life an impression was made on my mind I never forgot. I went to spend the night with a little boy who had a religious home. I had never been in a religious home. This was a good man and his home was a religious one, and they had plenty to eat, nice white linen tablecloth on the table and plenty of dishes. He asked a blessing at the table and he helped the plates of his wife and children; he helped me. I had never seen anything of that kind before."
"After supper we played blindfold and popped corn, roasted potatoes and ate apples and had a fine time until bedtime. The father then told the children it was time for bed and then he told them all to sit down quietly, and he took down an old book from the shelf and he talked out of it a long time. I did not know what he was at, as I had never seen family worship in my life. All got down on their knees and I knelt with them. The father talked just like he loved everybody and I knew that he was talking to the Lord, and after he had talked to Him a while about his wife and all of his children he began to talk to Him about me. I was so glad I was there, and that he was talking to the Lord about me and many things I never will forget. He asked the Lord to help me and to take care of me and to put his arms around me and make me a blessing to my home and to the world."
"It touched my little heart. I said right then that when I got to be a man I was going to have me a nice home, a wife and children, and I would be kind to my wife and children, ask a blessing at the table, read the Bible and pray and let my children eat apples, play, and have a nice time in my home."
"Well, I thank God I have lived to see that desire that sprung up in my heart fulfilled. While I am writing, two of the sweetest babies on earth are playing around me and pulling at my coat skirts and saying, "Papa, come and swing me," and their mamma looks on and smiles" (Sunshine and Smiles).

Unity: A One World Religion?
February 25, 2002 In light of the ties between nearly all Christian "evangelicals" with Rev. Moon, the CIA, the Council for Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Bush family and Bush Sr's "New World Order," is it any wonder that after the September 11th tragedy, Billy Graham prayed in the name of God, AND ALLAH, as dignitaries from many faiths (sic) gathered before him? This prayer was broadcast the world over. His call was for religious cooperation and 'unity of all faiths,' the trump of Rev. Moon.
Franklin Graham (son of world renowned evangelist Rev. Billy Graham, and heir to the lucrative and influential Billy Graham Evangelistic Ministries) in answer to a question by NBC's Tom Brokaw: "it's very important that all the faiths, (sic) all the denominations are coming together, cooperating together, working together; it is a wonderful testimony to the spirit of America, and the dedication of the American people" . . .

Comment: Amos 3:3 declares this is evil and will confirm the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church is indeed "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH".
This is "the image unto the beast" prophesied by Jesus, uniting "to crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh" (Hebrews 6:8). It is later than you think, the "Full story" was written twelve years ago and includes a file dated 1985 that names leading 'Christian' (sic) organizations, and leading 'Christians' (sic) with mug shots, each of whom is a Judas, and as Judas was the most trusted among Jesus' disciples these are the most trusted men and women in mainstream nominal Christian circles.

ISIS is a Creation of the Israeli Mossad
July 6, 2014 Regarding the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham or Islamic state of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), it can be no coincidence that through its brutality it is creating a great black mark against Islam. Nor can its direct relationship to Zionist plots of Israeli spy agencies be a coincidence. The family of Israeli spy agencies is also known as ISIS. For the Zionists ISIS stands for Israeli Secret Intelligence Service.
So the primary name of the Israeli spy agencies is now revealed, Israeli Secret Intelligent Service or ISIS. It could be no coincidence that the terrorist group which is furthering Zionist plots, that is, the carving up of Iraq into multiple enclaves, has the same namesake.
The cult in its new-age form is heavily supported by Zionist-orchestrated Websites such as Site Monitoring Service . . . Site is strictly a pro-Israeli, arch-Zionist entity. Yet, it heavily promotes the release of informationin multiple languagesrelated to ISIS? . . . Al-Hayat media is also a promoter. No doubt, al-Hayat is directly tied to the Zionist cabal . . .

Were the Three Settler Kidnappings an Israeli 'False Flag' Operation?
July 4, 2014 Evidence that came to light after Israel removed its gag order on information regarding the June 12 kidnapping and murder of three Jewish Israeli students suggests that it could have been an Israeli government operation that was intentionally used to punish Hamas and break up the new Palestinian unity government.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had immediately accused Hamas of the kidnapping—without presenting any evidence—and proceeded to "conduct a search" throughout the entirety of the West Bank until bodies were reportedly found on June 30th.
The "search" entailed arresting and beating up about 600 Hamas members (including legislators) and trashing about 2,100 homes; Israeli forces killed at least seven Palestinians. Israel also heightened its daily air strikes on the Gaza Strip, which has been under the Israeli blockade since September 2006. The Gaza government appealed to the UN for relief, which responded by condemning the kidnappings rather than the massive abuse of the Palestinian population. And then urging "all parties" to show restraint.
On July 1, Israel removed a gag order on information about the kidnapping that revealed shocking facts:
Prime Minister Netanyahu has used this event for huge political gain:
The Israeli government had informed members of the press around June 15th that it was aware that the students had been killed (1) but placed a gag order on that information: the government must thus have known where the bodies were. The brutal "search" was merely cover for punishment of members of Hamas, the democratically-elected party of Palestinians throughout the occupied territories. The Israeli media played along with the pretext for the abuse.
The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) were only called in 8-9 hours after the first call to report the kidnapping. One of the students placed a call to the police emergency hotline 10 minutes after they accepted a hitchhiking ride home, with the message that he was being kidnapped. The statement was followed by what sounded like several gunshots, groans and silence; the call lasted for 49 seconds. Police ignored the call. The teen's father called police 5 hours later, at 3:30 am, to report his son missing. "Several hours" after that, after an exchange of 54 phone calls, the IDF and Shin Bet finally became involved. (2)
Despite possession of all of the evidence of the kidnappings and murders, the Israeli government has offered no evidence that indicates responsibility for the acts. Those with any direct connection to the phone calls or the finding of the bodies have remained unidentified.
- to create divisions within the new "unity government" of Fatah and Hamas,
to physically punish Hamas members and the cause of Palestinian resistance, to get legislation passed through the Knesset to block the return of East Jerusalem to Palestinians (1),
- to try to foment a third intifada to legitimate further attacks on Palestinians (1) and
- to whip up such hatred of Palestinians that it has become dangerous for them to be seen on Israeli streets.
The Israeli government is continuing to harass and attack Palestinians until it supposedly finds the killers. The two young Hebron men named as the accused have been missing since June 12th. The uncovering of this deception should arouse world condemnation. Full story: globalresearch.ca
President Poroshenko uses RAND Corporation 'Action Plan' for Eastern Ukraine including Ground Assaults and Air Strikes
July 4, 2014 Confidential document on Ukraine by the RAND Corporation leaked. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko follows the action plan proposed by RAND analysts.

Obama Civilian Security Force takes Control of Immigrant Internment Camps: 'Abide by Brown Shirts Law'
July 2, 2014 In the run up to the 2008 Presidential election Barack Obama promised he would work to implement a domestic security force which would rival that of the US military . . . For the majority, the notion that such a force would be assembled in the United States was nothing but another conspiracy originating from the lunatic right wing. But in October of 2012 the Department of Homeland Security quietly graduated their first corp. of civilian responders under the new program. And since then it is likely that thousands more have been trained and deployed across the country to be called upon in the event of an emergency . . . Full story: shtfplan.com

Biting the Economic Bullet
July 4, 2014 It has been so much easier for our politicians to go along with the lie of an 'economic recovery' bubble than to spill the beans about all this printed 'QE' money just artificially 'puffing up' the figures. Neither do they like to mention the inexorable rise in the national debt, now around 1.3 trillion pounds ($2.23 trillion) which will clearly never stop growing let alone be paid off. Certainly QE is helping stocks, shares and asset prices as well as keeping the pension funds happy but at some time in the future those valuations will have to come down to earth, most likely with a bang. And a crash.
When they do you can be sure the power elite financiers will make a killing buying up distressed assets which are being sold off cheap but there will also be the sort of turmoil that goes with any collapse in confidence. The financial services industry sells confidence but when the bubble bursts and that confidence breaks it will smash across the real economy like a tsunami.
Imagine the 2001 Argentinean financial crisis but on a transcontinental scale. Savings wiped out for hundreds of millions of people. Millions made jobless overnight. Suddenly everything we ever thought we knew we could rely on, the very life blood of a capitalist society, collapses. What takes over rather quickly is the need to secure water, food and shelter for us and our families. Without money for these basics societies quickly atomize into a fight, even amongst neighbors, for physical control of territory and provisions. Outcome the handguns, then the AK47s and inevitable invoking of the most draconian government powers in martial law . . . Full story: rt.com
Materialistic Humanism: The World-View of Our Era
By Francis A. Schaeffer and C. Everett Koop, copyright ©1979, 1983
What has produced the inhumanity we have today is that society in the West has adopted a world-view which says that all reality is made up only of matter. This view is sometimes referred to as philosophic materialism, because it holds that only matter exists; sometimes it is called naturalism, because it says that no supernatural exists. Humanism which begins from man alone and makes man the measure of all things usually is materialistic in its philosophy. Whatever the label, this is the underlying world-view of our society today. In this view the universe did not get here because it was created by a "supernatural" God. Rather, the universe has existed forever in some form, and its present form just happened as a result of chance events way back in time.
Society in the West has largely rested on the base that God exists and that the Bible is true. In all sorts of ways this view affected the society. The materialistic or naturalistic or humanistic world-view almost always takes a superior attitude toward Christianity. Those who hold such a view have argued that Christianity is unscientific, that it cannot be proved, that it belongs simply to the realm of "faith." Christianity, they say, rests only on faith, while humanism rests on facts.
Professor Edmund R. Leach of Cambridge University expressed this view clearly: Our idea of God is a product of history. What I now believe about the supernatural is derived from what I was taught by my parents, and what they taught me was derived from what they were taught, and so on. But such beliefs are justified by faith alone, never by reason, and the true believer is expected to go on reaffirming his faith in the same verbal formula even if the passage of history and the growth of scientific knowledge should have turned the words into plain nonsense.
So some humanists act as if they have a great advantage over Christians. They act as if the advance of science and technology and a better understanding of history (through such concepts as the evolutionary theory) have all made the idea of God and Creation quite ridiculous.
This superior attitude, however, is strange because one of the most striking developments in the last half-century is the growth of a profound pessimism among both the well-educated and less-educated people. The thinkers in our society have been admitting for a long time that they have no final answers at all.
Take Woody Allen, for example. Most people know his as a comedian, but he has thought through where mankind stands after the "religious answers" have been abandoned. In an article in Esquire (May 1977), he says that man is left with:
". . . alienation, loneliness [and] emptiness verging on madness . . . The fundamental thing behind all motivation and all activity is the constant struggle against annihilation and against death. It's absolutely stupefying in its terror, and it renders anyone's accomplishments meaningless. As Camus wrote, it's not only that he (the individual) dies, or that man (as a whole) dies, but that you struggle to do a work of art that will last and then you realize that the universe itself is not going to exist after a period of time. Until those issues are resolved within each personreligiously or psychologically or existentiallythe social and political issues will never be resolved, except in a slapdash way."
Allen sums up his view in his film Annie Hall with these words: "Life is divided into the horrible and the miserable."
Many would like to dismiss this sort of statement as coming from one who is merely a pessimist by temperament, one who sees life without the benefit of a sense of humor. Woody Allen does not allow us that luxury. He speaks as a human being who has simply looked life in the face and has the courage to say what he sees. If there is no personal God, nothing beyond what our eyes can see and our hands can touch, then Woody Allen is right: life is both meaningless and terrifying. As the famous artist Paul Gauguin wrote on his last painting shortly before he tried to commit suicide: "Whence come we? What are we? Whither do we go?" The answers are nowhere, nothing, and nowhere. The humanist H. J. Blackham has expressed this with a dramatic illustration:
On humanist assumptions, life leads to nothing, and every pretense that it does not is a deceit. If there is a bridge over a gorge which spans only half the distance and ends in mid-air, and if the bridge is crowded with human beings pressing on, one after the other they fall into the abyss. The bridge leads nowhere, and those who are pressing forward to cross it are going nowhere . . . It does not matter where they think they are going, what preparations for the journey they may have made, how much they may be enjoying it all. The objection merely points out objectively that such a situation is a model of futility.
One does not have to be highly educated to understand this. It follows directly from the starting point of the humanists' position, namely, that everything is just matter. That is, that which has existed forever and ever is only some form of matter or energy, and everything in our world now is this and only this in a more or less complex form. Thus, Jacob Bronowski says in The Identity of Man (1965): "Man is a part of nature, in the same sense that a stone is, or a cactus, or a camel." In this view, men and women are by chance more complex, but not unique.
Within this world-view there is no room for believing that a human being has any final distinct value above that of an animal or of nonliving matter. People are merely a different arrangement of molecules. There are two points, therefore, that need to be made about the humanist world-view. First, the superior attitude toward Christianityas if Christianity had all the problems and humanism had all the answersis quite unjustified. The humanists of the Enlightenment two centuries ago thought they were going to find all the answers, but as time has passed, this optimistic hope has been proved wrong. It is their own descendants, those who share their materialistic world-view, who have been saying louder and louder as the years have passed, "There are no final answers."
Second, this humanist world-view has also brought us to the present devaluation of human lifenot technology and not overcrowding, although these have played a part. And this same world-view has given us no limits to prevent us from sliding into an even worse devaluation of human life in the future.
So it is naive and irresponsible to imagine that this world-view will reverse the direction in the future. A well-meaning commitment to "do what is right" will not be sufficient. Without a firm set of principles that flows out of a world-view that gives adequate reason for a unique value to all human life, there cannot be and will not be any substantial resistance to the present evil brought on by the low view of human life we have been considering in previous chapters. It was the materialistic world-view that brought in the inhumanity; it must be a different world-view that drives it out.
An emotional uneasiness about abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, and the abuse of genetic knowledge is not enough. To stand against the present devaluation of human life, a significant percentage of people within our society must adopt and live by a world-view which not only hopes or intends to give a basis for human dignity but which really does. The radical movements of the sixties were right to hope for a better world; they were right to protest against the shallowness and falseness of our plastic society. But their radicalness lasted only during the life span of the adolescence of their members. Although these movements claimed to be radical, they lacked a sufficient root. Their world-view was incapable of giving life to the aspirations of its adherents. Why? Because it, toolike the society they were condemninghad no sufficient base. So protests are not enough. Having the right ideals is not enough. Even those with a very short memory, those who can look back only to the sixties, can see that there must be more than that. A truly radical alternative has to be found. But where? And how (geocities.ws)?
Comment: "Baptism, which corresponds to the terrible flood, now saves you from death and gloom through the resurrection of Christ; NOT because our bodies are washed clean by water, but the earnest seeking of a conscience that is clear in God's Presence for we are asking Him to remit our past sins and clean our heart" (I Peter 3:20-21).
Joel Osteen, Mormon Senator, US Leaders meet Pope Francis in Rome
June 7, 2014 Joel Osteen, bestselling motivational author and evangelical pastor of America's fastest-growing megachurch, was among a small group that included Mormon Sen. Mike Lee, to meet privately with Pope Francis at the Vatican in Rome, this week. Osteen said he was honored to meet with Pope Francis, who leads the world's 1.2 billion Roman Catholics.
"I like the fact that this pope is trying to make the church larger, not smaller. He's not pushing people out but making the church more inclusive. That resonated with me," Osteen told the Houston Chronicle . . . According to Deseret News, the meeting with Pope Francis on Thursday was "part of a multiday, unofficial visit to Italy to promote ecumenical prayer and interfaith understanding" . . . The Fellowship is led by evangelical Christian minister Douglas Coe, who was noted by the Vatican Information Services as one of many guests received by Pope Francis on Thursday, cited simply as: "Doug Coe of the National Prayer Breakfast, USA, and entourage." The Fellowship is the main organizer behind the annual National Prayer Breakfast held in Washington, D.C.
Beebe, president of the interdenominational Christian liberal arts school Westmont College, was included in the party meeting the pope as a representative of "Christian higher education in the ecumenical conversation." According to Westmont College, Francis had invited more than a dozen "North American Protestant leaders" to discuss the question: "Can we find common ground in order to advance the life and ministry of Jesus so more people can experience the joy of Christian faith?"
The ecumenical meeting was a part of Pope Francis' on-going efforts to bring unity among Christians, previously stating in public remarks, "Divisions among us, but also divisions among the communities: evangelical Christians, orthodox Christians, Catholic Christians, but why divided? We must try to bring about unity." He added, "Seek unity, unity builds the Church and comes from Jesus Christ. He sends us the Holy Spirit to build unity!"
However, Pope Francis's call for unity goes beyond the Christian community. During his recent visit to the Middle East, Francis invited Israeli Jewish and Muslim leaders to join him in prayer for peace for their region at the Vatican this Sunday. Israel's Chief of State Shimon Peres and Palestinian President Abu Mazen will be joined by a delegation of rabbis, Islamic imams, and Israeli Druze community leaders, according to news reports. In the video, Pastor Osteen talks with KPRC-TV in Houston about his meeting with Pope Francis: Full story: m.christianpost.com
Africa must break with World Capitalist System to Achieve Real Growth and Sustainable Development
July 8, 2014 Events in several African states clearly make the case for re-examining the notion of western investment-led growth . . . the metal industry has shed 250,000 jobs in the last five years in South Africa . . . is a direct result of the world capitalist crisis of overproduction internationally . . . the capitalist governments throughout the world promote the rising profitability of banks and other corporations and this is usually manifested in the worsening conditions for workers, farmers and youth . . . Al-Sisi asked Egyptians to sacrifice in light of his austerity measures that are in line with the international financial system which is imposing higher prices and lower salaries on workers throughout the world . . .
Considering the tremendous reservoir of oil, natural gas and strategic minerals in Africa, there is no reason for the continent to remain trapped in the cycle of economic dependency on the imperialist states. Resources which belong to Africa must be effectively utilized for the betterment of the people . . . The reported discussions about an African Monetary Zone and military Stand by-force cannot be implemented until the extraction, trade and distribution of resources of the continent can serve to benefit the still-impoverished masses . . .

Comment: "The reported discussions about an African Monetary Zone and military Stand by-force" will not be permitted by City of London banksters. Remember Germany, Iraq, Libya, and coming up Syria, Iran, Venezuela and Russia?
Keepers of the Lost Ark?
"They shall make an ark of acacia wood," God commanded Moses in the Book of Exodus, after delivering the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. And so the Israelites built an ark, or chest, gilding it inside and out. And into this chest Moses placed stone tablets inscribed with the Ten Commandments, as given to him on Mount Sinai.
Thus the Ark "was worshipped by the Israelites as the embodiment of God Himself," writes Graham Hancock in The Sign and the Seal. "Biblical and other archaic sources speak of the Ark blazing with fire and light . . . stopping rivers, blasting whole armies." (Steven Spielberg's 1981 film Raiders of the Lost Ark provides a special-effects approximation.) According to the First Book of Kings, King Solomon built the First Temple in Jerusalem to house the Ark. It was venerated there during Solomon's reign (c. 970-930 B.C.) and beyond.
Then it vanished. Much of Jewish tradition holds that it disappeared before or while the Babylonians sacked the temple in Jerusalem in 586 BC. But through the centuries, Ethiopian Christians have claimed that the ark rests in a chapel in the small town of Aksum, in their country's northern highlands. It arrived nearly 3,000 years ago, they say, and has been guarded by a succession of virgin monks who, once anointed, are forbidden to set foot outside the chapel grounds until they die. . .

The Kinsman Redeemer
Abraham was a Gentile descended from Shem of the city of Ur of the Chaldeans, a center of Moon worship in southern Babylonia. Babel was founded by Bel also called Hermes which means "the son of Ham." According to history, Hermes was the great prophet of idolatry, the interpreter of the gods. The Chaldeans were called Sabeans, from 'saba' "the heavenly hosts," and worshipped Bel, the planet Jupiter, Nebo, Mercury, etc., (Job 31:26-27; Acts 14:11-18). Islam, whose followers worship Allah the Moon god, is their successor. Ur was the departure point for Abraham's migration to Mesopotamia and Canaan.
Genesis 17:1-7, "When Abram was ninety-nine years of age God appeared to him and said, I am the Almighty God; walk before Me and be perfect. And I will make a covenant between us, and will multiply you exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face: and God said, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations so I am changing your name. No longer will you be called Abram ["Exalted Father"], but Abraham ["Father of Goiim"]; for a father of many nations have I made you. I will give you millions of descendants who will constitute many nations, and kings shall descend from you. And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your seed after you in their days for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto you, and to your seed after you".
God gave the seal of His Covenant to Gentile Abraham when he was uncircumcised, and he is "the father of circumcision [separation from the world and the nature of carnal birthto the Word in newness of a Life in the Spirit] to them who are not merely circumcised, but who also follow the example of that faith which our father Abraham had being uncircumcised. For the promise, to inherit the world, was not to Abraham, or to his [natural] seed through the Law, but through the righteousness of faith. For if you claim that God's blessings go to natural Israel under the Law, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect" (Romans 4:1-14). And that, my precious friend, would make you Talmudic!
Abraham was the father of faith to the Gentile Church. God's Promise to Abraham and his seed preceded Israel's existence and the Law was given to his natural seed as a curse because of their unbelief in God's Word (Galatians 3:13). Today, only an Edomite could wish to impersonate the nation of Israel which has been blinded and excluded from God's Kingdom for 2,000 years.
Forget the foolish superstitions those non-Semitic anti-Semitic self-styled 'Jews' claim for themselves. They have no call upon Adam's inheritance let alone God's promise to Abraham. When God recognized Abram's faith, He renamed him "Abraham" which means "father of the Gentiles," "Father of many nations," or Goiim.
Galatians 3:16, 27, 29, "Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He said not, and to seeds, as of many; but as of One, and to your Seed, which is Jesus Christ. If you have been baptized into Christ [or born-again], you are Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise"; this is "the blessing of Abraham" (Galatians 3:14).
Let us be spiritual and not suppose that God's promise to Abraham may be inherited through the happenstance or lust of a sexual birth. That is carnal thinking. It matters not whether you spring from Shem, Ham, or Japheth, so long as you are born into Adam's race for God's promise to Abraham requires a spiritual birth. His promised Seed (singular) was Messiah God, the last Adam whom Israel and Edomite 'Jews' murdered as Cain murdered the first Adam (Matthew 23:33-36; 27:25). Do you see the type? And do you also see that Jesus is the last Adam, and not the last Cain who is not on the Book of Life and has no kinsman Redeemer?
When after three days God substituted a ram for Isaac's life, Abraham caught the revelation of Christ's vicarious death for Adam's seed and His resurrection on the third day "he rejoiced to see Christ's day and was glad" (John 8:56; Hebrews 11:17-19). God's chosen people are Christians, not Israelites, 'Jews,' or denominational Babylonians (I Peter 2:9).
Israel was called to obey God as a testimony to us Gentiles that we might constitute "many nations" fathered by the faith of Abraham. When Israel disobeyed God He put the nation out of the Land of the Covenant, and God's Covenant with Abraham's natural seed through Isaac and Jacob is without effect to Israelites living outside the Land of the Covenant.
Israel's chastisement shall be "seven times more grievous" as foretold by Moses (Leviticus 26:14-46). Judeans replaced God's Word with "the traditions of men," later compiled as their lewd Babylonian Talmud that caused them to reject and kill Messiah their King. In the days of John Hyrcanus Esau broke Jacob's yoke from his neck, stole his new name and changed it to "Jew," then in 1948 he stole the Promised Land and established the Marxist, racist State of apartheid Israel, where blood Israelites are subjugated beneath his hybrid race of Edomite and Khazar self-styled 'Jews' who will rule Judah and Jerusalem unto the consummation of life on earth (Genesis 27:39-41; Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17:8). But in the 'seventh time' or great tribulation of "Jacob's trouble" the Israelites will return to the Land of the Covenant where God will sift 144,000 elect from the mixed multitude that is Edom's Israel.
Throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ's end-time Bride. We know this is so because the Book was sealed to the time of the end when Christ would break the Seven Seals and reveal their secrets to us in the days of the voice of the seventh angel or prophet-messenger, William Branham. In a series of visions during his two year exile on the Isle of Patmos John saw and heard the Prophet revealing this mystery and signified those things in Old Testament symbols as "The Revelation of Jesus Christ" (Malachi 4:5-6; Acts 3:19-23; Revelation 1:1; 3:14; 10:7).
Representing Christ's end-time Bride called out from Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches, John foresaw in a vision the sealing of 144,000 elect Israelites by the baptism with the Holy Ghost in the fourth year after the resurrection and translation of the Church. He also saw their subsequent martyrdom by the Judaeo-Roman church, her denominational daughters and treacherous Edomites who will betray the Israelites (as in the siege of Titus 20,000 gained admittance to Jerusalem and loosed bloodshed and rapine). History repeats because spirits don't die. More recently they have betrayed Germany, America, Great Britain, all Europe (by the EEC), Russia and China by Judaeo-communism; the Balkans, Latin America, Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, Egypt, Syria and soon Pakistan in pursuit of global hegemony. Indeed all nations have been betrayed by their usurers and their United Nations criminal organization.
After this revelation, John "saw a great multitude too vast to number, of all nations, kindreds, people, and tongues, standing before the Throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands, shouting with a mighty voice, saying, Our salvation is due to our God who sits upon the throne, and to the Lamb" (Revelation 7:9). This "great multitude of all nations and kindreds" from Adam's race is the holy offspring of Abraham's Seed Jesus Christ. This is God's elect mostly Gentile Church, Christ's Bride of all ages who "are before God's throne, and serve Him day and night in His temple [as His wife]: and He who sits on the throne will live among them [as her Husband]" (Revelation 7:15).
Forfeiting his domain and our inheritance to Satan, Adam crossed from eternity into time to redeem his wife Eve. However God's Law enables a near kinsman to pay redemption's price and redeem an inheritance that has been forfeited. That kinsman must be worthy, prepared of his own free will, and able to meet the price (Leviticus 25). But Adam's seed is "born in sin and conceived in iniquity" so not one was righteous and qualified to perform the duty of Kinsman Redeemer, and since sin separated us from God Adam's race was potentially lost (Psalm 51:5; Romans 3:10). Our only possibility for salvation and eternal Life lay in the supernatural birth of a righteous Man.
Jesus Christ alone could redeem Adam's inheritance because He was without sin and was kin to Adam since they share the same Father! But until you are born-again God is not your father and Jesus is not your Brother.
In Matthew 4 Satan failed to cause our Kinsman to disqualify Himself by unrighteousness so he sought to destroy Him on Calvary. Since Christ's resurrection Satan has toiled to deceive Adam's seed to surrender their birthright through unbelief. Now in the end-time he has turned back to the temptation of miscegenation with Cain's hybrid race, "as it was in the days of Noah" (Genesis 6:1-4; Matthew 24:37), relying on the cycle of birth, reproduction and death, to hybridize and diminish the inheritance of Adam and Michael who is Christ.
The procedure for redemption under the law of the Kinsman Redeemer is seen in the Book of Ruth which tells how a certain Judahite by the name of Elimelech left Israel with his wife Naomi and their two sons to stay in the land of Moab during a time of famine. The narrative is also an allegory and type of Israel, of Christ, and God's "chosen people"the Bride of Christ.
Elimelech died; his sons married Moabite women, and they also died. When conditions in Israel improved, Naomi ventured to return even though the bankers had foreclosed on her husband's fields. And because she had no more sons to raise seed in Levirate marriage with her daughters-in-law and continue her husband's name she encouraged them both to remain in their homeland with their own gods where they might find new husbands.
One daughter-in-law, Orpah, returned to her own people. But Ruth, with a revelation of the one true God, said, "Entreat me not to leave you, or to return from following after you: for whither you go, I will go; and where you lodge, I will lodge: your people shall be my people, and your God my God: where you die I will die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part you and me" (Ruth 1:16-17). Like Joseph, Ruth knew that the covenant and therefore the resurrection of righteous Israelites were in effect only in the Promised Land as it is to this very day. And the Christian's new birth and his resurrection lie only in the Word for his day (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7).
Naomi types Israel which rejected Messiah and God's Covenant. Throughout the Gentile dispensation Israel has been blinded by Talmudic apostasy causing a two thousand year famine for God's Word until the end of the Gentile dispensation. Like Naomi and her family, Israel left the Land of the Covenant in a time of distress and "for fear of the Jews" has never returned from the security of Islamic lands. But in the stranger's land a harder fate befalls them in spiritual death, for when they forsook the Land they also forsook the Covenant of the God of Israel.
Ruth types the Gentile Bride of all ages. Her clear-cut decision to follow the one true God types the Christian's revelation of Justification by grace through faith (Ruth 1:6-18).
The pair returned to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley season, the place and the time of Christ's birth. At Bethlehem no one helped or comforted Naomi; Ruth alone is her support, labouring and begging, and her piety was not unnoticed. When Boaz made inquiry he realized he was her kinsman through marriage, and the reapers gave a good report. The kindnesses done to these women by Boaz, on whose fields Ruth had been gleaning after the reapers, originated solely in the man's admiration of the pious love of Ruth; although it is true he was a kinsman of Naomi.
Ruth's serving in the field was a type of the Christian's sanctification (Ruth 2:1-23). Boaz, who types Jesus Christ, recognized Ruth as a virtuous woman. Ruth asked for her right when she said, "Spread your wing over your handmaid: for you are a near kinsman" (Deuteronomy 22:30; Ruth 3:9; Ezekiel 16:8). Boaz agreed to do the duty of a kinsman redeemer and raise up children in Mahlon's name and they were betrothed. This types the Baptism with the Holy Ghost or new birth and Ruth entered her rest (Ruth 3:1-18); but only on account of her love and purity was the grace and blessing of Boaz fulfilled. Jesus Messiah was Israel's near Kinsman and so when they rejected redemption He cried, "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that killed the prophets, and stones all those God sends to her. How often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not let Me! And now your house is desolate with no Redeemer to restore the kingdom to Israel. For you will be spiritually blinded to your Redeemer until you shall say, Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord" (Matthew 23:37-38).
Naomi had a nearer kinsman so Boaz gave her six measures of barley to sustain she and her mother-in-law while he went away to confront the nearer kinsman whether he will do the duty. He types Satan, Israel's nearer kinsman whose worldly nature on your soul before new birth was your nearer kinsman.
Although it was not apparent to Ruth, Naomi realized the six measures were indicative of Boaz' faith in the success of his mission. Six signifies the six days of 1,000 years wherein man labors against sin, while seven indicates perfection and the millennium of rest. The six measures of barley type the six days' manna with which God sustained Israel in their wilderness journey which in turn signify the Messages of PART-Word to the Church Ages wherein the saints labored to understand the import of the Seven Sealed Book. Whereas Israel rested on the sabbath and ate of the double portion of manna gathered on the sixth day, the seventh angel gathered up the unfinished fragments of the Messages of the preceding six angels, and after the end of Laodicea Christ opened and revealed to him the unwritten Seventh Seal which finished the mysteries of the six written Seals. Since "that which is perfect is come, PART-Word and Christ's mediation for ignorance of the fullness is done away" and we rest in "the true sayings of God" (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 19:7-9).
Now the duty of the kinsman redeemer was to present his claim before the elders who judge in the city gate (Daniel 7:9; Matthew 19:28; Revelation 21:12-14). Boaz waited in the gate, and when the nearer kinsman passed by he advised him before ten of the judges that Naomi had returned and required a near kinsman to redeem her husband's field.
Once the kinsman had agreed to redeem the field for Naomi, Boaz informed him that he must also redeem it for Ruth and take her in Levirate marriage to raise up seed to inherit her husband's inheritance and continue his name. The kinsman was prepared to redeem the field for a widow whose sons were deceased, for upon her demise the land would be his and his heirs, but he would not raise a child to inherit the property in the name of his dead relative and protested that he could not redeem it for he would mar his inheritance. Perhaps guided more by superstition than selfishness, he was not willing to endanger his own family and inheritance as had Elimelech by immigrating to Moab, which led Mahlon and Chilion to marry Moabite women and extinguished one family in Israel.
Can you see the type? Jesus could lay down His life, and since He was without sin He could take it up again. Jesus was worthy, able and willing to pay sin's price to redeem Israel in order to marry the Gentile Bride whom He loved. But Satan could not pay sin's price to redeem Naomi as he cannot resurrect from death and has no redeemer.
The kinsman signified the renunciation of his right by removing his own shoe and giving it to Boaz as was the custom concerning redeeming and transfer.
The shoe is the symbol of motion and wandering (Exodus 12:11; Deuteronomy 29:5), and of rest and possession (Luke 15:22; Ephesians 6:15). With the shoe one trod the earth, however on holy ground it must be removed (Joshua 5:15); and since one had complete control over it, the shoe symbolized the power of the possessor over his possession. In Psalms 60:8 and 108:9, God casts his shoe over Edom signifying He will possess and take dominion over that land.
The shoe symbolized a possession which one actually had and could tread with his feet, at pleasure (Deuteronomy 11:24). Whoever entered into this possession conjointly with another, put his foot into the same shoe, as was done in old German law by an adopted child and the wife. Hence, when the goel pulled off his shoe and gave it to Boaz, he therewith renounced all claims to the right of possession which would have been his had he fulfilled its conditions.
Ruth 4:9-11, "And Boaz said to the elders, and to all the people, You are witnesses this day, that I have bought all that was Elimelech's, and all that was Chilion's and Mahlon's, from Naomi. Moreover Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of Mahlon, have I purchased to be my wife, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, that the name of the dead be not cut off from among his brethren, and from the gate of his place: you are witnesses this day. And all the people that were in the gate, and the elders, said: We are witnesses".
As Boaz had to redeem Naomi in order to marry his Gentile Bride Jesus came to redeem His Own; and only when He had redeemed Israel could He marry the Gentile Bride.
Naomi's sorrow is at last lifted away when Boaz fulfills the law of the kinsman redeemer and marries Ruth. From the Moabitess springs the son, Obed, of whom David, the King of Israel who rose from among the flocks of Bethlehem to be a hero and a prophet is the celebrated grandson whose greater Son is our Lord Jesus Christ (Ruth 4:13-22; Matthew 1:5; Luke 3:32). We further note that the mother of Boaz was Rahab, another Gentile, the harlot of Jericho and hero of faith. Joshua 6:17 and James 2:25-26 witness how Rahab demonstrated her faith by her works, and was thereby justified.
These four stages in Ruth's life type the journey of the Gentile Church born again under the first four Seals: Ruth deciding, Ruth serving, Ruth resting, and Ruth rewarded type the elect Church.
Ruth deciding to follow the one true God was justified by grace through faith. This represents the First Seal (Revelation 6:1-2) which was introduced by the living creature with the face of a Lion. Under this Seal Satan rode forth on his white horse to impersonate Christ and usurp spiritual power by "the deeds of the nicolaitanes" and establish a clerical hierarchy between God and men (Matthew 24:4-5; Revelation 2:6). Like Balaam he substituted man-made teachings for the Word of God, then organized the Judaeo-Roman false church where the deeds of the nicolaitanes were enshrined as doctrine (Revelation 2:14-15). The original apostolic saints and those of the Ephesian, Smyrnean and Pergamean Ages were all born-again under the First Seal.
We may also type Ruth's deciding with the Sardis Church Age (1520-1750) whose angel Martin Luther restored the doctrine of justification by grace through faith. The Lutheran, Congregational, Anglican/Episcopalian, and Presbyterian churches are the most notable impersonators of the Sardis Age today.
Ruth serving behind the reapers was feeding her soul on the revealed Word for her hour. The reapers are the angels or portions of the Spirit that anointed each of the seven Church Age messengers (Matthew 13:39), and Ruth was sanctified by the Word of their ministry. This stage represents the Second Seal (Revelation 6:3-4) which was introduced by the Ox-faced creature, a beast of patient and faithful labor, but also of sacrifice. This was the Dark Ages when Satan rode his bloody red horse and slaughtered over 68 million Christians according to the martyrology of the Roman church as he gathered political power to himself (Matthew 24:6). Under this Seal the saints of the Thyatira Church Age were redeemed.
We may also type this stage with the Philadelphian Church Age (1750-1906) whose angel was John Wesley. Among the denominations impersonating the Philadelphian Age today are myriad Methodist, Wesleyan, Baptist, Brethren, Nazarene and Pilgrim Holiness congregations.
Ruth resting, waiting for the realization of Boaz' redemption, types the baptism with the Holy Ghost which is the new birth whereby we enter our rest (Matthew 11:28-27). This stage of her walk in faith represents the Third Seal (Revelation 6:5-6) where Satan rode his black horse of demon power. He filled the lunatic asylums and prisons, enraged popes and kings, unleashed the "Jew's" Illuminism, Freemasonry, revolutions, and had Karl Marx draft their Communism and Professor Baron Karl von Ritter draft their plans for Nazism (Matthew 24:7). But under the anointing of the living creature with the face of a man, the smartest of all of the beasts, the Spirit of God raised up a standard against the Enemy. Under this Seal the saints of the Sardis and Philadelphian Church Ages were born-again.
This stage of Ruth's walk may also be typed with the Laodicean Church Age (1906-1963) where God restored the gifts of the Spirit through the revelation that "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever." The angel to Laodicea was the Prophet William Branham whose ministry gathered the loose ends of doctrines not fully understood by the reformers, and restored the apostolic faith. The best known churches impersonating Laodicea today are the Assemblies of God, United Pentecostal, Four Square and the Roman Catholic Charismatic Movement.
Ruth rewarded types the end-time Bride who receive the revelation of the Seven Seals of redemption through the ministry of the seventh angel after the close of the Laodicean Church Age as Ruth received the revelation of the finished work of her redemption when Boaz returned from the gate. The Seals reveal how Christ redeemed the saints in each Church Age of PART-Word, and who they were. It is essential for us to understand which Scriptures have been fulfilled already and what Jesus is doing NOW so that we do not attempt to impersonate some genuine Moves of the Spirit that are already fulfilled. We would be without excuse and could not be born-again in this day because Christ's Mediation for ignorance of the Word was fulfilled before He opened the Seven Seals.
The saints of the Laodicean Age and of the Bride's holy convocation are all spiritually redeemed under the Fourth Seal (Revelation 6:7-8) which is nearing completion and ends the Gentile dispensation. The anointing under the Fourth Seal is represented by a living creature with the face of an Eagle. The eagle can ascend into the heavenlies and refocus his sight so that he clearly sees things far away. He doesn't scratch around for his living like a denominational chicken, or feed on carrion from a bygone day like an organizational hawk or religious crow. He feeds on fresh-killed meat, Spiritual food in due season. The eagle represents God's prophets.
Speaking of our holy convocation Jesus said, "Wherever the fresh food is, there the eagles will be gathered together." The revelation of the Seven Seals after the end of Laodicea brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form to incarnate His end-time Bride (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7). Our day is typed by the fiftieth day of the Pentecostal feast of Leviticus 23 which foresaw the Holy Spirit waved again in the end-time Bride, represented as two loaves baked with leaven during the manifestation of the Sons of God, before our body change. As Ruth married Boaz and lived happily ever after, we meet our Bridegroom for the Wedding Supper in the air and live eternally, while Satan, who is to be cast down to earth at the close of grace, will incarnate Rome's pope and ride his pale horse to perdition with his followers (Matthew 24:8).
The Church is now in the fourth stage of Ruth's Spiritual walk. All the saints have been redeemed. Redemption is over. We have been rewarded by the revelation of the Seven Seals and are just waiting for Jesus to take us Home. When Christ's mediation ended at Revelation 3:22 His end-time Bride (represented by John) was caught up in the Spirit into the rapture in Revelation 4:1 to see what will take place after the Church Ages of PART-Word and intercession of Revelation 1-3 were fulfilled. Our first revelation is that grace has not ended and the door in heaven is still open, but the Mercy Seat has become a Judgment Seat (Revelation 4:5).
In Revelation 5 the elders advertised for a kinsman redeemer, and Jesus our Boaz claimed His right which is the Title Deed to everything Adam had forfeited. Upon opening its Seven Seals He declared the contents through His prophet William Branham, and when you receive the revelation of their mystery you have recognized your day and its Message which is God calling your name from the Lamb's Book of Life by identifying your part in the Word and your position in the Body.
In 1963 Christ returned from the elders in Heaven's Gate by the "shout" of the Prophet's Message calling His end-time Bride "Come out of Babylon and be filled with the Spirit" (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 10:1-7; 18:4). "The Voice of the Archangel" is now whispering His secrets to the heart of His Bride to place the Message from Genesis to Revelation and bring her to maturity in the fullness of the Word (Ephesians 4:13). Like Ruth we are ripening in the S_O_N-Light pending the "Trumpet" calling the resurrection of the sleeping saints, the manifestation of the sons of God, and our translation when we shall meet our glorified 'Boaz' in person (I Thessalonians 4:16; Romans 8:19).
God promised King David He would establish his house and the throne of his kingdom forever (II Samuel 7:11-17). But the natural seed of David's physical line ceased to have any significance following the birth of Jesus Christ who, as Son of David, will reign through all eternity. This is attested by the genealogies of Matthew 1 and Luke 3 which end with our Lord Jesus Christ. His Royal seed is His Queen, His Church, which is His Royal Priesthood and joint heir.
There are some who actually believe in fraudulent genealogies that purport to prove the European Royal Houses are Semitic and the House of David. In reality those lineages all began in Japheth and have without exception inbred with the Venetian and Genoese oligarchies who are Khazars "that say they are Jews, and are not but do lie." A prime example is the House of Windsor which is really the Khazar House of Guelph. Through intermarriage with the seed of Cain all of these Royal Houses were blotted from the Book of Life long ago as confirmed by Revelation 17:8, 12-13.
Revelation 5:3-5, "No man in heaven, or in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the Book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the Book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders said to me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the Book, and to loose the Seven Seals thereof."
You see, Lord Jesus Christ is the root AND offspring of David (Revelation 22:16). He is the eternal God who will have NO successors on the Throne of Israel. Adam and his future seed including any Royals not Serpent's seed lost all and required redemption themselves. Only Jesus Christ could redeem them, and ALL the redeemed are Abraham's seed by the baptism with the Holy Ghost and heirs of the promise. "The Word of God is the original seed" (Luke 8:11), so the redeemed are twice bornfrom Adam's physical seed, and by the spoken Word Seed passed through the Body of Christ.
Faith is the kernel of the kingdom of God. Not only natural, but also spiritual Israelites can become its children. The Psalms of King David unfold the relations of the Gentiles to that kingdom: Psalm 18:43, "You made me the head of the nations; a people that I knew not, serve me." Psalm 22:27-28, "All the kindreds of the nations shall worship before you; for the kingdom is the Lord's, and He is the governor among the nations." This is the same Lord described in Isaiah 9:6-7.
Typing Jesus Christ, King David's wives, his most valiant warriors and faithful servants were Gentiles as was his heir King Solomon. Speaking of His role as KINSMAN Redeemer David's greater Son said, "Whosoever shall do the will of My Father who is in heaven, is My brother, and sister, and mother:" kinfolk (Matthew 12:50). That places the elect of Adam's race, whatever their nationality, color, gender or station in life, on equal footing with the Virgin Mary, Peter and Paul, and has nothing whatever to do with being an Israelite.
