Bible Believers' Newsletter 1025
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are always happy to have your company.
Our main article entitled "Headship" takes us back to the beginning where "woman was made for man" and granted co-equality over the whole terrestrial creation. It outlines how, following Eve's horrible sin that caused the fall and introduced death, God placed man and woman under separate covenants. Woman lost her co-equality, man was made her ruler, and the Lord God introduced divorce, polygamy and remarriage to maintain social order and emphasize the headship of man who is created in the image of God, over the woman who is made in the image of man to serve man.

Israel at Seventy: Symbol of War, Racism, Reaction
May 14, 2018 — The settler state of Israel turns 70 on May 14. In imperialist capitals, especially Israel and the US, this state built on the bones of the Palestinian people will be praised and celebrated. The US will open its embassy in Jerusalem the same day. It is a state built on lies. The people of the world have a different assessment of Israel at 70. It is a pariah state and international outlaw; a dog of war armed and unleashed by the Pentagon; a symbol of war, of racism and apartheid, and of reaction. It is a danger to all people of the region, including Israelis. The continued struggle of the Palestinian people is most responsible for shattering the colonizer's illusions . . .

Comment: Apartheid Israel and commencement of large-scale Palestinian Genocide: 14 May 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the Israeli Declaration of Independence by [non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jew] Zionist terrorist David Ben Gurion . . . (countercurrents.org).
The Balfour Declaration and its cost in lives. Donald Trump won the presidential race by promising to 'make America great again,' and beat the war horse Hillary Clinton, but in the background instead of Louis D. Brandeis and Chaim Weizmann there was Jared Kushner and Bibi Netanyahu (who has said, "Once we squeeze all we can out of the United States, it can dry up and blow away"). [All of these names are non-Semitic, anti-Semitic so-called Jews]. Has the prelude to another 'Great War' started? . . . (biblebelievers.org.au).
Israel Bans Entry of Palestinian Medical Delegation into Gaza. Crime against Humanity
May 13, 2018 — Israeli authorities refused to issue the necessary entry permits for the members of the medical delegation formed by the Palestinian Minister of Health in Ramallah Jawad Awwad to assist medical staff in Gaza. The Ministry stressed that this ban is a further crime committed against the Gazan people who are also prevented from travelling abroad for treatment . . . Full story: palinfo.com
Comment: In [a] photo, shared by Nir Dvori a reporter at Israeli Channel 2 television news on Friday, seven young Israeli adults are seen smiling and waving at the cameras as they sit on an observation tower in Nahal Oz, outside the fenced-off Gaza strip . . . to watch as the Israeli military uses live fire and excessive force against Palestinian protesters (dailysabah.com).
The use of deadly force against the peaceful protesters was premeditated. The IDF deployed 100 snipers to the border fence between Gaza and Israel, where 30,000 to 40,000 Palestinians had gathered for the Great March of Return. In a damning tweet, later deleted, the IDF wrote, "Nothing was carried out uncontrolled; everything was accurate and measured, and we know where every bullet landed" (consortiumnews.com).
Iran – Trump's Broken Deal – Maneuver to War?
May 12, 2018 — What is it then that Trump and his handlers expect from this illegal decision of rescinding an international agreement? . . . with this undiplomatic decision, they are driving President Rouhani into the camp of the hardliners . . . who from the very beginning were against this Deal . . . also a blow to the Atlantists or the "Fifth Column" which is quite strong in Iran . . . abandoned by the west . . . Iran will accelerate the course . . . towards the East, becoming a member of the Eurasian Economic Union and . . . Shanghai Cooperation Organization . . . headed by Russia and China. And how does this "Broken Deal" affect negotiations between President Trump and DPRK's President Kim Jong-un . . . Will anything that Trump negotiates and signs have credibility?
President Xi Jinping . . . recently said that Iran will be a crucial and vital link within . . . Belt and Road Initiative, a Chinese socio-economic and cultural enterprise . . . connecting Asia from the very east with western Europe, Africa, the Middle East and even South America . . . included in the Chinese Constitution . . . this gigantic Chinese Program is hardly mentioned in the western mainstream media . . . oligarchs who control . . . don't want the world to know that the western fraudulent economy, built on debt and a pyramid monetary system (a large Ponzi scheme) is gradually declining, leaving all those that cling to it eventually abandoned and in misery. . . . The BRI is an unstoppable train . . . Trump shot himself in the foot.

Analysis: Trump tells World to drop dead as Netanyahu dictates his nixing of Iran Deal
May 8, 2018 — Israeli PM hopes decision to withdraw from agreement will see Iran go the way of the Soviet Union once harsh sanctions kick in. A few minutes past two in Washington, the president of the United States adopted the "Netanyahu Doctrine" wholesale and made it official American policy.
Donald Trump's announcement to exit the Iran nuclear deal could have been scripted by Benjamin Netanyahu. Word. For. Word. This wasn't about improving or "fixing" the Iran deal. It was nixing and deep-sixing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and making sure it can never be resurrected. Without any pretense of setting up an alternative arms-control deal or a Plan B. Trump's motive may have been to obliterate his predecessor Barack Obama's foreign policy legacy. But for his team of advisers who prepared the announcement, the target was not just the deal: it was Iran. This is a victory for Netanyahu and the Iran hawks in the Republican Party—and few victories have been so emphatic.
Before he joined the presidential race three years ago next month, Trump knew little about the Iran deal and cared even less. But for others, this is not just about pulling out of the JCPOA. It is part of a much wider campaign to confront Iran, one that always believed in a very different approach to that of the Obama administration and its European allies in striking the Iran deal. They have a broader philosophy of how to block Iran from achieving nuclear weapons. This is the Netanyahu Doctrine. Netanyahu believes the unspecified and tougher sanctions Trump spoke of could ultimately force Iran to negotiate and sign a much tougher arms control agreement—one with stricter inspection requirements, a more comprehensive dismantlement of the uranium enrichment program and no time limits on its implementation . . .

Comment: They're cheering Trump's nuke deal withdrawal in the Gulf States. Donald Trump's America has just become a rogue nation, as prophesied by Israel's Messiah, Jesus Christ (Revelation 13:11-18).
An Explanation of the May 3 Letter and the Delegated Powers
May 4, 2018 — It's apparent from the questions we are getting about the May 3rd Letter to Donald Trump informing him that THE REPUBLIC OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA—another "governmental services corporation" formed in France over the weekend—does not have a contract, is confusing people. The United States of America (Unincorporated)—our original federal Union of land jurisdiction States delegated nineteen enumerated powers, all of them in the international jurisdiction of the sea.
As a result of the three Constitution(s) three distinct branches of the federal government were created, all of them represented by States of States, and empowered to exercise jurisdiction over specific administrative areas.
The Constitution FOR the united States of America was the National Constitution and the powers delegated through it were exercised by the original Confederation of National-level States of States doing business as, for example, The State of Georgia, The State of Ohio and their Union created by The Articles of Confederation. Those National-level States of States have been moth-balled since the 1860's and secretively replaced and usurped upon by the British Territorial United States . . .
Mr. Trump has been offered the actual Office of the President of The United States of America (Unincorporated) and in that Office, he would be one of three Officers responsible for the care and protection of this entire country and would have access to the tremendous wealth and credit that the American States and People are owed. Instead of relying on his own States and his own People, Trump has instead gone crawling to Macron for help and apparently supported yet another betrayal of our interests to those of European con artists who have robbed six generations of Americans blind . . . Full story: mainerepublicemailreport.com
Comment: The British Crown runs the US Legal System "governmental services corporation." The United States is still a British Colony, the land still belongs to the King, America was never "free". Rothschild's Mr. Macron was in Australia last week with Goldman Sachs' Australian P.M. Turnbull for the same purpose . . . he was in the USA.
There is an obnoxious video/email going around the circuit claiming that China "owns" California. I am not sorry at all that this isn't true, but like most lies, it does contain a kernel of buried truth. Consider what I am going to tell you now very carefully: No, China does not own California. CHINA may own the STATE OF CALIFORNIA, which is a different matter entirely . . . Oh, and for everyone's information, we, the actual United States of America (unincorporated) own the UNITED STATES, INC., which owns CHINA . . .
Amazon Censorship Hits Home
May 10, 2018 — By this time most folks have probably heard about the March 2018 purge from Amazon.com of books that call into question the story that during World War II Nazi Germany implemented through official policy the gassing to death and cremation of six million Jews at government-run central "extermination" camps. One can find a good summary of the actions by Amazon in Kevin Barrett's article with the tongue-in-cheek title, "Jeff Bezos, Amazon Endorse Holocaust Denial" . . .
Although half a century has now passed, hardly any event, when looked at in the clear light of day, permits us to come to grips more completely with the political reality of the United States today than does the assault on the USS Liberty. We live in an era in which members of the United States military have never been more venerated. From sports events to airport encounters, we're expected to honor them at every turn. "Support the troops" is seemingly an admonition that no one can disagree with. All of the military reverence comes to a screeching halt, though, when it comes to the surviving crewmen of the USS Liberty . . . a customer's review of it that I learned about the little known attempt by the Zionist Stern Gang to assassinate President Harry Truman with a letter bomb in 1947. That discovery led me to write the article, "'Jews' Tried to Kill Truman in 1947" . . . Full story: dcdave.com
Comment: The "squeeze" is gathering pace led by the pale horse rider of Revelation 6:8, bankrupting dissident booksellers.
Hawaii Volcano raises Concerns of Eruptions along West Coast
May 13, 2018 — The West Coast is home to an 800-mile (1,300-kilometer) chain of 13 volcanoes , from Washington state's Mount Baker to California's Lassen Peak. They include Mount St. Helens, whose spectacular 1980 eruption in the Pacific Northwest killed dozens of people and sent volcanic ash across the country, and massive Mount Rainier, which towers above the Seattle metro area . . .
Kilauea, on Hawaii's Big Island, is threatening to blow its top in coming days or weeks after sputtering lava for a week, forcing about 2,000 people to evacuate, destroying two dozen homes and threatening a geothermal plant. Experts fear the volcano could hurl ash and boulders the size of refrigerators miles into the air . . . Roughly 450 volcanoes make up [the Ring of Fire] with Kilauea situated in the middle . . . frequent volcanic and seismic activity caused by the colliding of crustal plates. America's most dangerous volcanoes are all part of the Ring of Fire, and most are on the West Coast, according to the USGS . . . Full story: apnews.com
Ecuador hints it may hand over Julian Assange to Britain & the US
May 12, 2018 — Julian Assange is in immense danger. Remarks made this week by Ecuador's foreign minister suggest that her government may be preparing to renege on the political asylum it granted to the WikiLeaks editor in 2012 and hand him over to British and then American authorities.
On March 28, under immense pressure from the governments in the US, Britain and other powers, Ecuador imposed a complete ban on Assange having any Internet or phone contact with the outside world, and blocked his friends and supporters from physically visiting him. For 45 days, he has not been heard from. Ecuador . . . and Britain "have the intention and the interest that this be resolved." Moves were underway, she said, to reach a "definite agreement" on Assange.
If Assange falls into the hands of the British state, he faces being turned over to the US . . . In 2010, WikiLeaks courageously published information . . . that exposed war crimes committed by American forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. WikiLeaks also published . . . tens of thousands of secret diplomatic cables, exposing the daily anti-democratic intrigues of US imperialism and numerous other governments . . . The effort to haul Assange before a US court is inseparable from the broader campaign underway by the American state and allied governments to impose sweeping censorship on the Internet . . .

Matthew 4:4, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God".
John 6:63, "The Words that I speak to you, they are Spirit, and they are Life".
Genesis 2:16-17, "And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the Garden you may freely eat: but of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die".
Before time and material creation the eternal Spirit was alone with the Attributes of His thinking. His thoughts are eternal, they are real and will come to pass in their designated and decreed season and time. Time and matter began when He expressed His thoughts as the Logos which means "thought in speech, or concept," Ezekiel called this Supernatural Light "the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord." Any Word is a thought expressed, and if it is God's Word it will take place. So the Bible is the story of God changing His form, unfolding His Attributes, which is Himself, into the flesh of His glorified Family. This will be the real "communion of saints," unlike Judaeo Roman Catholic heresy the Apostle's Creed, "read and approved at the Council of Chalcedon in 451," more than three hundred and fifty years after the death of the first apostles (Documents of the Christian Church, second ed., Henry Bettenson, p. 26). It is as transparent as Adam and Eve's Fig leaves and contrary to the foundation of the apostles and prophets on which Christ is building His Church (Ephesians 2:20).
If you were in God's eternal thinking you have Eternal Life and are "without beginning of time or end of life" (Hebrews 7:3). Jesus died for those souls whose names were written in the Lamb's Book of Life from the foundation of the world, and when the last members of Christ's end-time Bride recognize their place in the Body the first resurrection will commence for they are the manifestation of God's Attributes for this day.
Everything was God's expressed Word in perfect harmony until Eve was deceived by Satan and seduced by the Serpent. From then on Satan, who stood at God's right hand and was almost co-equal with God except as a creator, became His Adversary; everything became subject to death, and woman lost her co-equality with man over the creation (Genesis 1:28; 3:16). "Unto the woman the Lord God said, I will greatly multiply your sorrow and conception; in sorrow you shall bring forth children; and your desire (longing or craving) shall be to your husband, and he shall rule over you" (Ephesians 5:22-24; I Peter 3:6).
I Timothy 2:11-15 refers to the original sin and the woman's loss of co-equality under a separate covenant after the Fall: "Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. However she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety".
Like the church your soul is feminine in designation, under submission, not co-equal with her lord but desiring to serve, which is why every human being will worship someone or something. All religion is intellectual and not of God. Cain's children have all been religious. Since the church rejected Christ the Word in the revelation of the Seven Seals God has been calling the wise and foolish virgins OUT from Rome and her (once) Protestant daughters to meet Christ "in the unity of the faith . . . lest they become partakers of her sins and receive her plagues" (Matthew 25:6; Ephesians 4:13; Revelation 18:4).
Adam could not be deceived on the Word of God for God was his father and we take the nature of your parent, but when we are born again we take the Nature of our heavenly Parent. Adam was God's spoken Word made flesh whereas Eve was a by-product made from Adam's rib. From the same lump of clay God made two people, one to honour, and one to dishonour. Anyone "born-again of incorruptible Seed, by the Word of God that lives and abides forever" cannot be deceived on the revealed Word (Matthew 24:24; John 10:3-5; Ephesians 5:26; Colossians 3:10; James 1:18-21; I Peter 1:21-25).
In I Corinthians 11:2-16 Paul wrote, "I praise you, brethren, that you remember me in all things, and observe the rules of conduct, order and doctrine in the Church as I delivered them to you. [Paul next reproves the Church for their neglect to one of his precepts]: I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered [uncut hair], dishonours His Head [Jesus Christ]. But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered [cut hair] dishonours her head [her husband]: for that is the same as if she were shaven, [a harlot or suspected of impropriety as in the ordeal of jealousy of Numbers 5:6-31].
This "investigation" or "temporary judgment" of the ordeal of jealousy is the Old Testament type of the Seven Vials that plague non-elect believers and denominations after each Church Age. We live in the parenthesis between the Sixth and Seventh Vials (Revelation 16:13-16). The antitype of the three angels of Genesis 18 promised us by Jesus in Luke 17:28-30 have gone to their rewards. The angels to Sodom were Billy Graham who visited the evangelicals and Oral Roberts who visited the Pentecostals. The Prophet William Branham was the 'Elijah' of Malachi 4:5-6, the seventh angel of Revelation 10:7 who revealed "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday and today and forever by discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart"—the Messianic sign of Hebrews 4:12. As John the Baptist foreran Christ's first or (Gk.) 'erchomai' Coming in the office Son of man, Brother Branham's Message foreran and introduced the second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming of the Son of man to His elect and separated brethren.
"For if the woman is not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it is a shame for a woman to be shorn (have cut hair) or shaved (bald), let her be covered (by uncut hair). For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, for as much as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. The man is [first formed] not of the woman; but the woman is [out] of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man, so the woman ought to have a token of submission on her head because of the angels [who are men]" (Ephesians 4:8; I Timothy 2:12; Hebrews 2:1-3). Paul is the prophet who wrote the New Testament, the angel to the Ephesian Church Age whose THUS SAITH THE LORD is Absolute and cannot change or pass away. In I Corinthians 11:3-16 he reproves and corrects men in the image of God for abrogating their authority, and women for usurping equality with men when they are under a separate Covenant. Galatians 1:8-9 "if an angel from Heaven or any man preaches contrary to what I have preached to you, let him be accursed." Any true messenger to the church will correct a woman with cut hair because he is at one with God who's love is corrective. No Christian woman cuts her hair. A woman who cuts her hair signifies she has rejected the authority of God and man, and her husband can put her away.
The token of the Old Covenant was circumcision, but it is not possible to circumcise a woman so she came under the Covenant by her husband's token as did their unwed daughters also under his authority. Under the New Testament our circumcision is not in the flesh but of the soul by a clear revelation of "the present Truth" revealed for our day: new birth. Galatians 2:7-9, "For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Judean nor Gentile, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: you are all co-equal [spiritually] in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise." In the flesh male and female are under distinct and separate covenants and she is no longer a ruler with him.
"Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man, nor man of woman. For as woman was made from man, so now man is born of woman; and all things are from God. Judge for yourselves: is it proper for a woman to pray with her head uncovered? Does not even nature itself teach you, that for a man to have long [uncut] hair is degrading to him? But if a woman has long [uncut] hair it is her pride: for her hair is given to her for a covering. But if any man is disposed to be contentious, we recognize no other practice, nor do the churches of God".
Woman was given a place in man before the Fall (Genesis 5:2), co-equal over all creation (Genesis 1:28). When he was separated from the theophany and put in flesh; part of his being was still in a theophany in God's great thinking. Had the Lord formed woman in the original creation, there would have been no sin because as the Word manifest she could not be deceived, but she is a perversion of the original creation. The whole of God's creation is the manifestation of His spoken Word except for woman who was taken from man after God had finished forming the animals in pairs, male and female and bringing them to Adam to name. After the Fall He was to be her ruler (Genesis 3:16).
Among the animals it is usually the male that is beautiful while the female is plain. Consider the lion with his magnificent mane, the beautiful peacock and the dowdy peahen, but in the human race the woman is beautiful and the male is plain. God is a man, when He was made flesh, "He had no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him" (Isaiah 53:2). No animal is immoral, nor can it be for it is the manifestation of God's spoken Word and original creation. Dogs and other animals copulate perhaps once year, to reproduce, not for sexual pleasure, but woman is designed out of continuity with nature and is able to be seduced. A pretty woman can sway a man anyway she wants to; she has the power of lust and can cohabit practically whenever she desires (Proverbs 30:18-20).
Satan himself was "full of wisdom and perfect in beauty" (Ezekiel 28:12), and Judas was handsome, strong and a deceiver. Sin is beautiful in the eyes of the world, however God is not featured in physical beauty but by character—"Christ in you, the hope of glory" (Colossians 1:27; II Corinthians 3:2). Satan started working on the woman, not Adam. He is her designer with immoral fashions that expose her form, high heels, undergarments and makeup that make her look like what she ain't, bifurcated garments—jeans and slacks—an "abomination" in God's sight (Deuteronomy 22:5; I Timothy 2:9-10). The Bible mentions one woman who painted her face and that was Jezebel (II Kings 9:30-37). You don't paint your face to meet God. Heathens worship women as goddesses; the Judaeo-Roman church made Mary a mediatrix in about the 5th century. Hollywood and Bollywood have made them film idols and stars. Christians don't go to movies but Satan and his seed who control the entertainment industry bring them into the homes of non-Christians via television, and instead of him being her ruler, she has become his god.
Because you were conceived by the desire of a man and a woman through Satan's wisdom you were born an earthly child with the nature of this world whose god is Satan. You bypassed your theophany, which is God's "likeness" in which you were created (Heb.) 'bara' out of nothing but His thought before his incarnation as "the firstborn among many brethren" (Genesis 1:26-28; Romans 8:29; Colossians 1:15). So when you recognized the Word for your day, you left the denomination and have been formed into the living image of the living God. You heard from your theophany. "If our earthly house of this body were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens" (I Corinthians 5:1; John 14:2). You have heard your name called from the Lamb's Book of Life.
When Adam was male and female in himself God said: "Multiply and fill the earth," showing us that the last Adam's Bride must be born of the Man, the Word, by spiritual multiplication, not by sexual desire as it has been since the Fall. Jesus had to be born by woman through Mary's faith, without sexual desire: He was the Seed Eve should have produced. Eve disbelieved and brought death upon all creation. Mary said, "Be it unto me according to your Word." The Life had to come through that Seed without sexual desire to restore the Truth and fulfil God's command "in the beginning," then fall to the ground and die in order to multiply worldwide so an election from every nation, tribe and tongue of Adam's race could make their individual decision. Soon without sex, God will call His children from the dust of the earth, as He created the first Adam. Our navel calls attention to the original sin. Its mark is upon every human being born since the Fall. Only Adam and Eve who were created, not born, had no navel.
At the end there will be one Lord Jesus, and His many-membered Bride, singular. There was one David on one throne, one king (after God's own heart) with five hundred wives. Wise King Solomon who had a thousand wives in his harem said: "one man among a thousand have I found; but a woman among all those I have not found" (Ecclesiastes, 7:26-29). Like an exquisite jewel, Christ's Bride is few, and rare among the believers. Solomon was a type of King Jesus Christ in the office Son of David sitting on His Throne in the Millennium, with a Wife, created out of the earth in the resurrection by the hand of Almighty God, like it was "in the beginning"—thousand thousands. Neither a woman nor a man can make it outside Jesus Christ, and in Christ "there is neither male nor female," we are all one in the faith.
You are your soul and your soul is the nature of the spirit ruling it. Your first husband is the nature of this world who's god is Satan to whom Adam forfeited his dominion when he took Eve to himself, and as a type of Christ bore her responsibility on his shoulders: "by one man's offence death reigned through Adam [saving his wife]" (Romans 5:17-18). Eve should have been burnt along with the Serpent for their terrible deed (Leviticus 20:10, 15-16; 21:9). "Wherefore as by one man, Adam, sin entered into the world, and death by sin: and so death passed upon all men, in that all have sinned" (Romans 5:12). We, our soul is "dead in trespasses and sins" (Ephesians 2:1) until it is quickened to new birth by a clear revelation of "the present Truth"—what Jesus is doing now. Prior to redemption the god of this world reigned from head knowledge and intelligence and the worldly desires of our spirit and flesh ran roughshod over our unregenerate soul. Christ enthrones the heart in union with our soul, bringing our spirit under submission to rule the senses of our flesh. The Law imputed sin but could not liberate from sin, and without being born-again it is difficult for a man to bring his passions under submission so the Lord introduced polygamy not only for the man, but for all male animals as indicated in Genesis 32:13-15. "Jacob took of that which came to his hand a present for Esau his brother; two hundred she goats, and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes, and twenty rams, thirty milk camels with their colts, forty heifers, and ten bulls, twenty she asses, and ten foals".
Since the woman broke God's Covenant (Genesis 2:17) God established another order in nature, by sex. A second covenant: one male, many females; one buck deer, a whole harem of does; one bull, a herd of cows; one rooster, a yard full of hens. One David, with five hundred wives, a man after God's Own heart. One Solomon, with a thousand wives. It wasn't so at the beginning, but now it's "after" the beginning.
As we have explained, the First Adam and Eve type the last Adam and Eve. As the first Eve committed adultery before her husband had knowledge of her. The second Eve, the church, committed adultery against her espoused Husband, Christ the Word, at the First Nicaea Council and bore the bastard Judaeo-Roman Catholic church by spiritual hybridization as Eve bore the bastard Cain by physical hybridization.
The last Adam is marrying a virgin to the Word, NOT a denominational harlot whose intellectual religion adds to and takes from the Word. As a type of Christ a Christian minister can only marry a Christian virgin in the flesh, showing that the Church of the living God is the pure unadulterated Word of God, not a denomination that has been touched by another man.
When Jesus was instructing His disciples He said, "It has been said, Whoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: but I tell you, whoever puts away his wife, except for fornication [unconfessed before marriage], causes her to commit adultery [because she will remarry]: and whosoever marries she who is divorced commits adultery [because she has a living husband]" (Matthew 5:31-32; Romans 7:1-3).
Because of the original sin we are all born through sex and from birth our soul was in fornication with our first husband, the nature of Satan. Thus before we can be born-again we must repent, confess our past sin (or unbelief) and be baptized in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ for the remission [not forgiveness] of sins (Acts 2:38-39). If a bride does not do that in Spiritual as in the natural marriage she has contracted under false pretence and He can put her away and take another because the marriage was void.
No man can marry a woman who has a living husband (Deuteronomy 24:1-4). However there is no prohibition against him remarrying. Christ is our type. In every dispensation change throughout the Gentile dispensations He put away the denominations of the previous Age and married another in "the present Truth." He can like Abraham, Jacob, David, Solomon and all the rest, but she can't. And a minister can remarry, if she is a virgin (Leviticus 21:10-15; Ezekiel 44:22). Since the Fall God has dealt with men and women under two separate covenants.
I Corinthians 7:10, "To the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: but and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband (Romans 7:1-3): and let not the husband put away his wife (Matthew 5:32; 19:9). She must remain single, or be reconciled to her husband. She cannot remarry but he can remarry. The sex law by polygamy ensures the Word of God runs in continuity. From the beginning there was just one man and one wife. After sin entered there was one man and a many women in continuity with nature, and human flesh is animal.
The New Testament must follow the shadows and types established in the Old Testament. Woman was not formed in the original creation but is a by-product from Adam designed to be a sex act, no other creature on earth is designed like that. She is made so that she can deceive and be deceived and placed on free moral agency, knowing the outcome, enabling God to manifest His Attributes and gather glory to Himself. This introduced polygamy, ultimately there will be one Jesus Christ, one Man, God, Immanuel in glorified flesh, and His many-membered Wife, the Bride, the Church. That's why He said to the first Adam before sex was introduced, "Multiply to fill the earth," when he was male and female in himself. Had she waited for her husband, her head, to receive the revelation and speak the Word, Eve would have given birth to Jesus Christ, "the beginning of the creation of God" without sex! Christ's Bride is begotten by the Word of the hour, Spiritual multiplication by "the present Truth" (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7). After four thousand years the virgin, Mary, received the spoken Word from the Angel Gabriel (the Man of God who is Christ, the last Adam) and gave birth to Jesus Messiah—now both the beginner and "the beginning of the [NEW] creation of God[-men and God-women]"
Since the Seals have been opened and "the mystery of God is finished," the Spirit of Truth guides us into all truth and shows us things to come" (John 6:13). nl1025.htm
