For biology teacher Al Frisby, teaching evolution to the many students who take the Bible literally is like "banging his face against a brick wall." More than a third of the students at his suburban high school in Shawnee Mission, Kansas, wrote in a final evaluation last year that they did not believe a thing their teacher had to say on the subject.
The challenge Frisby (not Frisbee) faces is apt to get tougher next year. On Wednesday, the Kansas Board of Education passed a new statewide science curriculum for kindergarten through 12th grade that wipes out virtually all mention of evolution and related concepts: natural selection, common ancestors and the origins of the universe.
The new curriculum does not explicitly prohibit the teaching of evolution. But its exclusion severely undermines such efforts when they come under attack from students, parents, principals or local school boards in a state where fights over evolution are as commonplace as cornfields. Because all public schools in the state are tested yearly according to the curriculum, teachers will be pressured to follow the new curriculum.
This marks the most decisive victory in recent years for the creationist movement: Christians who read the book of Genesis literally and believe that God created human beings and animals fully formed.
To prove Earth's relative youth, creationists cite evidence that dinosaurs lived far more recently than the millions of years ago cited by paleontologists. "One of our staff members went to Alaska recently and found dinosaur bones that were not yet fossilized," said Looy, of Answers in Genesis. "If dinosaurs perished 65 million years ago, how could one have been around in the last few hundred years? That matches with what the Bible teaches - that dinosaurs lived recently." (Hanna Rosin, Washington Post).
June 17, the city of Van Nuys, California, was running a Y2K test on its sewage system, and the computer pumped 4 million gallons or raw sewage into the streets and into Lake Balboa Park (CBS News, 12:03pm).
June 22, Monroe County, Indiana's new Y2K-compliant computer began issuing checks for 50 million dollars instead of 50 dollars (Brian Werth, Herald Times, July 6, 1999).
June 23, Mobil in Melbourne, Australia, tested their Y2K-compliant software and the entire Oil distribution centre ceased to function (Cass Warnerminde, Computer World, June 23).
July 7, The Canadian Government has hired 43 special satellite dishes at a cost of 21 million dollars to ensure they have a communications system after December 31 (Robert Fife, National Post, Ottowa).
July 24, a Y2K glich shut down Bell Canada (for the third time that week), leaving thousands of businesses and homes without phone service (Natalie Armstrong, Ottowa Citizen, July 25).
Mother and Daughters Reuniting
The Vatican and the Anglican Church reached an agreement on May 12, that in the event of a reunion, the Pope of Rome would exercise universal primacy whilst the compromising language of a June 2 accord made with the Lutheran Church left "justification by grace through faith" open to individual interpretation. In this offer of rapproachment, Pope John Paul II is working to return the Eastern Orthodox church back into communion with the "Universal Church" by the year 2000.
Rome has announced neither the political motive behind these drastic moves, nor the reason for their precise timing.
Christians know that Roman Catholicism will become the state religion for the European Union (EU) when the Eastern and Western legs of the Holy Roman Empire are reunited according to Revelation 17:12-13; and that one day, Roman dogma will be forced upon everyone (Revelation 13:15-18).
I was informed by a Roman Catholic subscriber that many records of Papal Bulls and Latern Councils are no longer available on the Internet. The Holy See is rewriting its bloody history to reconcile with Jewry. But not with Islam. Turkey's application for membership in the EU, whose flag bears Rome's twelve stars, was rejected on religious grounds. This must happen in order to create friction between the Political Zionists (false Christendom and false Jewry) who will be brought into conflict with Islam in World War III, according to the age-old plan of the Learned Elders.
Queen without Subjects?
In 1953, the Queen swore on oath at her Coronation "to govern the peoples of the United Kingdom ACCORDING TO THEIR LAWS AND CUSTOMS" and "to maintain the Protestant Reformed religion established by law" both of which are negated by the process of deeper European integration.
Before the Maastricht Treaty there were no British Citizens. British Passports described the holder as a "British Subject" (of Queen Elizabeth II). Since Maastricht, the Queen has no more subjects. The British are citizens of a state subject to unelected nameless, foreign EU rulers, and soon, of Rome.
In a continent in which 61 million claim a Protestant heritage and 199 million profess to be Roman Catholics, it is simply not possible to maintain Protestantism by democratic law. The Catholic Herald (December, 1993) said: "The days of the Anglican Church are numbered, and most of its worshipers will return to the faith of their distant medieval forefathers".
Raising Jesus Christ Out of History
Two thousand years ago, Jesus' disciples, not knowing the Word, buried Him in a tomb of stone. But the grave could not contain Him and God raised up Jesus, seating Him at the right hand of power.
Two thousand years later Jesus' disciples, not knowing the Word, have buried Him once again. This time He's entombed in past history. They see Him as the "I Was" of yesterday; perhaps even the "I Will Be" of some vague tomorrow; but certainly not the "I Am" of NOW.
Like Mary, Martha and His Uncle Joseph of Arimathaea, they love the historical Jesus and have learned all about Him. Indeed they would die for the honor of this historical God, but they know not Christ the living Word, having put Him out (Matthew 25:6; II Thessalonians 2:1-11; Revelation 3:17-20).
The Prophet once said, "We can't live life through the rear view mirror of yesteryear: we must walk in the Light Jesus is manifesting NOW". There is a present Truth: those who are His sheep will find It, recognize His Voice, and become written epistles of THAT part of the Word.
Jesus was dead but He has risen and is alive forever more. We must have an exhumation today, raising Jesus Christ out of history, and die to ourselves so He can live in OUR hearts.
New subscribers to this Newsletter, particularly those who haven't yet put away denominational traditions that make the Word of God of no effect, must must find it strange to study these Newsletters and discover that whilst we agree 100% with God's unchanging Word, "the faith" is almost 100% in disagreement with denominational thought.
Jesus said it would so be in the end-time, as denominations unite together to crucify the Word to themselves the second time. His enemies were ever those who pretend to be His friends.
So we must "Search the Scriptures" as Jesus admonished, "For in them you imagine you have Eternal Life." But if our life doesn't match the Word, and every one, we are none of His. We must recognize what Jesus is doing NOW, and see THAT part of His Word living through us.
Lift Jesus out of history into today, into your town, your house, into your own heart. Oh, not so you can say, "I love Jesus". Two billion denominational Christians say that; and many mean it. But if they don't know what Jesus is doing NOW, they haven't heard His Voice and are none of His.
You might love a certain man or a particular girl; they might love you. But unless that affection is received and reciprocated by the other party, it is not mutual. And many Christians have a one-sided love affair with the god of their imagination. A "Jesus" of denominational fiction Who loves everybody, not the Jesus of the Bible who loves and died to redeem only His Own.
II Thessalonians 2:10 says, "Because they RECEIVED NOT the love of the Truth, they perished". They loved Jesus (who is the Truth) but He did NOT love them because they loved him according to their own conception of Who and What He is, and not according to the UNCHANGING mind of God. They loved the historical Jesus, not knowing the Living Christ! Being without faith they could not please God, and were rejected by Him.
Faith, if it is faith, is built upon the solid rock of Spiritual revelation of God's Word. It is the unchanging mind of Christ IN you, a consistent revelation from Genesis to Revelation.
Now in last week's Newsletter I said something about the Trinity. Whenever we discuss the Trinity, it's like Gideon selecting his warriors. Some of the make-believers and un-believers cancel their subscription for they have the mind of the denomination which is the mind of men, and not the mind of Christ.
Hey, Rome, the candle burned out long ago!
The Message never did!
"Blessed is he that is not offended in Me"!
Some of our newer readers and Christians less-experienced in the present Truth of what Jesus is doing now may wonder why we don't speak more about Jesus Christ. Pray as you read: you'll see that everything we discuss is Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. Not the old, old stories of 2,000 years ago, but what Jesus our Head is doing in His Body TODAY.
The Body of Christ is the Living Church. The only time we have in our power is NOW, and although God is the same yesterday, and today and forever, the only part of His Word that will work is the part He predestinated for NOW. We're fighting a battle against the powers of darkness today, we're not fighting battles of 2,000 years ago. They're ancient history. We must fight today's battles. Jesus admonished every Church Age, "He who is Spiritual will hear My Message to the elect Church in their Age - their new birth. They will also hear My rebuke to the Enemy's false church of that Age" (Revelation 2 and 3).
God who is omniscient, knowing all things, has promised Christians a PREVIEW of the battle in their day. In John 16:13, Jesus called this the EVIDENCE of the new birth. He said, "When you have the Holy Spirit He will guide you into ALL the Truth revealed to YOUR day; and reveal what will come to pass in the Battle in YOUR day".
With these Words of comfort and assurance, let's see what Jesus is doing NOW.
Hegelian dialectics is the notion that CONFLICT CREATES HISTORY. It follows that CONTROLLED CONFLICT can create a PREDETERMINED history. That is a conspiracy. Not "theory", but a FACT.
In Hegelian terms, an existing force (thesis) generates a counterforce (antithesis). Conflict between the two forces results in the forming of a synthesis. Then the process starts all over again: Thesis versus antithesis results in synthesis.
The synthesis sought by the Establishment or Synagogue of Satan is called the New World Order (NWO). Without controlled conflict the NWO will not come about. Random individual action of persons in society would not lead to this synthesis which is artificial and therefore has to be created. This is being done with the calculated, managed, use of conflict. And all the while this synthesis is being sought, there is no profit in playing the opposing parties against one another.
This explains why the International Bankers backed the Nazis, the Soviet Union, North Korea, North Vietnam, etc., etc., AGAINST the United States and her allies. The "conflict" built profits while pushing the world even closer to One World Government. The process continues today in Serbia, Somalia, the Sudan, China, Russia, the Middle East - Iran, Iraq, Kuwait and Israel. And for the next act: aggression against the Muslims in Pakistan and Indonesia, against Burma, and the nuclear destruction of North Korea.
In the NWO the self-styled Jews are presently striving to create, the State will be god. It will be Absolute and the individual will find freedom only in blind obedience to the State. But according to Daniel and Jesus, the Jews will continue to bow to their mortal enemy, Rome, who will rule unto the consummation, then be destroyed by Communism (a creation of the self-styled Jews). Afterwards, Armageddon will destroy all life on earth before the Millennium.
Our Scripture is Revelation 16:13-14, "And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of demons, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty".
These three spirits follow the unclean words or impure doctrine of the Roman Catholic church. They have the characteristic of frogs in that they continually look back into past at the glories of ancient Rome, of the Holy Roman Empire, and of world dominion.
In Daniel 2, when the prophet interpreted Nebuchadnezzar's dream, he described four Gentile world powers that would rule Israel, and thus also become the enemy of the self-styled Jew until the consummation. The fourth and final power is Rome. In Rome Satan is personified as the "Dragon".
Matthew 1 and Revelation 12 describe how Rome stood before Israel in the person of King Herod to destroy Messiah as an infant. At that time, the Dragon bore seven crowns representing Imperial Rome's seven deified Emperors (See Revelation 17:12-13 - Part IV). The eighth will be the last Pope, in confederation with the Khazar Black Nobility or Royal Houses of Europe, symbolized by the ten horns of the beast of Papal Rome which are crowned instead of the seven heads (Revelation 17:10-12; 13:1; 12:9).
Revelation 13 describes how Imperial Rome went into decline as a natural power but was transformed at the First Nicea Council of AD325 into a spiritual power called Papal Rome, and led by a False Prophet instead of an Emperor. Rome rules the world today and because of its superior numbers, is a greater force than the self-styled Jews.
The "false prophet" is the papacy. The Pope "sits in the temple of God forgiving sins as if he were God" (II Thessalonians 2:4). The Pope is a further stage of Satan's incarnation. In the early days of the Church he was an antichrist Spirit but in the Pergamean Age where the Roman Catholic church organized, he was crowned with a triple crown signifying jurisdiction over heaven, earth and purgatory (Revelation 6:1-2). He claims infallibility, speaking as God to the people. And God only speaks through a prophet. But this fellow is not even a Christian, so he is the false prophet.
The "beast" is the last Pope. He will be incarnate by Satan when he is cast from heavens at the end of the Gentile Dispensation to rule Rome's New World Order (NWO).
Notice three different spirits come out of the mouth of Rome. Each looks back into the past. Each is a doctrine that yearns to revive some quality of the natural Roman Empire, and they inspire the leaders and great men of the earth to accomplish this mission. The
or wonder is persuading men to follow their lies. This phenomenon recurs in Revelation 13:14 where the beast from the land, the United States of America, performs the "miracle" of uniting Protestants in a World Council of Churches, forming an image of the spiritual beast, or Roman Catholic church empire.
Brother Branham taught us these three spirits that set the world on the road to Armageddon manifested as three "isms": Fascism, Nazism and Communism. Although Fascism manifest in many countries: Spain, Japan and Yugoslavia among them, Mussolini granted autonomy to Vatican City State, put the Jews out of Italy, and with visions of rebuilding the Roman empire, invaded Ethiopia.
Under Hitler, Nazism put the Jews out of Germany. There were less than 250,000 Jews in the whole of Germany when World War II broke out. God used World Wars I and II to force Israel, who had been assimilating, back to the Promised Land so that Scripture could be completed. Of course, the vast majority of these people were self-styled Jews with no claim on the covenants God made with Abraham, Moses or even Adam. But God used their grasping, aggressive nature to recover the Land of the Covenant where the true Israelites will assemble from the neighboring countries for reconciliation through the ministry of His two Hebrew prophets. They have returned. And whether they be seen as Hebrews or Palestinian Muslims under President Arafat, they are hated and persecuted by the non-Semitic anti-Semitic self-styled Jewish majority in Israel.
Soon, a brief World War III will divide the world in controlled conflict once again, bringing the Political Zionists or Western World against the Muslim or Eastern World who will be supported by atheistic Communism. When Stalin found he had been deceived by the International Bankers, there was a great purge of Jewry, to FORCE Israel back to the Promised Land. But as the late Stephen Wise, Chief Rabbi of the United States said, "Communism is Judaism".
Like Fascism and Nazism, Communism is an unclean spirit that looks to the past. With Communism, the State is god. Communism rejected faith, which is the evidence of things not seen, to construct a material empire based upon science, education, and things that can be grasped by the rational mind and physical senses in the here and now of this temporal world.
Rome deceived the Russian people with empty promises of salvation and eternal Life earned by self-works which they employed to steal their wealth. Thus Russia became Communist because of the impurity and non-Power of the Catholic church to satisfy their superstitions.
Those three unclean spirits look BACK to Imperial Rome, BACK to the Holy Roman Empire, and BACK to the supremacy of the Roman Catholic church that once ruled the world with an iron grip and totalitarian power. And as Brother Branham taught, they all end up in Communism which God has permitted to rise up to destroy the false church.
Four living creatures represented in the heavenly vision endued the saints under the first four Seals with the attributes of the earthly animals they represented. Each creature had a face like a lion, and a face like an ox, a face like a man, and a face like a flying eagle. They guarded the way into the Presence, and no matter which way they traveled, they were always going forward.
You'll recall in Ephesians 6 Paul admonishes Christians to put on the whole armor of God. This armor gives no protection for our back parts. Christians never retreat, we advance. And having done all, we stand. That's when the Supernatural takes place.
These living creatures and the whole armor of God relate to what Jesus called the infallible evidence of the baptism with the Holy Ghost, which is the new birth. John 16:13, "When He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will show you things to come." The FUTURE, not the past.
When we are full of the Spirit signified by the four-faced living creatures, we will be led into ALL the Truth revealed for OUR day; we'll declare only what we have received by revelation from God, and our direction will be FORWARD, knowing what will come to pass in OUR day. Amen!
Evil spirits and demons know only what was in the PAST. Those who in their sinner days participated in the occult will know that the demons can only say what WAS. Satan is building a hybrid church by intellectual knowledge instead of faith (or understanding) in the Word. It is hybrid by learning a slanted history of the PAST, and guessing about the future.
Its ministry and congregations are inspired by fallen angels and not led of the Spirit. Now an "angel" is a messenger - invariably a human being. Ministers are messengers. Satan is able to transform his messengers so that they impersonate ministers of the Gospel - fallen angels of the Anglican, Lutheran, Methodist, Baptist or Pentecostal Messages, who failed to keep on walking in the Light as God continued to unfold It (Jude 6). And failing to stay in the Word, fell into organized religion governed by committees of men instead of being led of the Spirit into the common faith of God's sovereign will.
Each of us is a messenger with a message of Life, or death. Have we sold-out to carnal reasoning and education like the first Eve and the fallen angels? Are we bound within denominational walled cities of foodless pastures called Anglican, Presbyterian, United Pentecostal or Assembly of God?
Brother Branham pinpointed precisely when this trinity of evil spirits like frogs manifested. It was right between the Sixth and Seventh Vials of Revelation 16:12 and Revelation 16:17. These vials represent the ordeal of jealousy by which God separated the foolish virgin from the false church at the close of each Church Age. The Fifth Plague was the Spanish flu pandemic that killed 20 millions worldwide between 1918-1919. In Sydney there were 370,000 cases per million population, and for lack of burial manpower, the coffins were piled up on railway stations.
The plague of the Sixth Vial is Judaeo-Communism which has taken over the apostate once Christian West. Since we are, "wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked, we know it not" (Revelation 3:17). We even finance it with our taxation. Communist Russia has always been funded by tax-exempt US Foundations and Wall Street banksters, while the Communistic United Nations Organization is funded primarily by the US taxpayer.
The Seventh Vial is poured out after Los Angeles sinks beneath the Pacific at the Seventh Trump that closes the Gentile dispensation. History confirms that these three unclean spirits have manifested from after 1918 to the present time but not revealed until between the Sixth and Seventh Vials. This signifies the lateness of this present hour.
The next step before Armageddon, and just after the close of our dispensation will be World War III. More on this next week. nl084.htm
