Charles Schumer says DC Statehood is a Priority, a First for Senate Democrats
March 7, 2019 — Schumer touted statehood among his top three ways to bolster voting rights, a day before the House is expected to pass a sweeping resolution on the topic that includes a call to make the District the 51st state. It would be the first time either chamber of Congress has endorsed DC statehood. "Even though we don't talk about it enough, we have a population larger than two states living here in Washington, DC, without full congressional representation," Schumer said in a Senate floor speech Thursday. The developments provide a boost to long-time statehood proponents who have struggled to consolidate Democratic support . . . Full story: washingtonpost.com
Comment: Charles Schumer is a non-Semitic self-styled Jew. Washington DC is a foreign sovereign city state outside the union that rules over the united States [as the City of London is a foreign sovereign city state that rules the UK, and Vatican City State is a sovereign nation foreign to Italy].
In this video at about 41:55 Jewish Senator Schumer states that he took Nancy Pelosi everywhere in Israel except where they did the stations of the Cross. Nancy Pelosi is also a non-Semitic self-styled Jew. What Schumer was saying is that, as Jews, they disdain and hate Israel's Messiah, Jesus, the bastard son of Mary the hairdresser who conceived by a Roman Legionnaire when she was menstruating and He is now in hell boiling in excrement. Senator Chuck Schumer was rubbing the faces of America's ignorant (agnostic and apostate) Laodicean Christian majority into the depravity his Talmudic filth (Gittin 57a; Exhibit 202).
Brother Branham said, "I sincerely believe and maintain as a private student of the Word, along with Divine inspiration that 1977 ought to terminate the world systems and usher in the millennium" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:4).
The world monetary system established at Bretton Woods died before 1977 when President Richard Nixon unilaterally closed the gold window in 1971, rendering the Bretton Woods system inoperable, so that by 1973 it was replaced by a de facto regime of floating fiat currencies that remains in place to the present day (Newsletter 926). The Money Power is the sole world system that overrules globally. The world church system of the Roman Catholic and the Protestant in coming together will control the whole wealth of the world system and force the whole earth into its religious trap, or will kill them, by refusing them the privilege of buying and selling whereby they would make a living [Revelation 13:15-18].
The United States and the international banksters must provoke war with Russia, China and their allies, and divide the world between East and West in order to ensure oil is sold in USD with parity pricing. Otherwise the USD will collapse, and with it Jewish wealth and the fraudulent fractional reserve fiat money banking system. Daniel 9:27 and Revelation 17:11-18 assure us, and once paper wealth is backed by public gold the Jews will switch sides.
[The UNITED STATES is not a country, it is a federal corporation as stated under US code 3002 section 15 part a, and a continuation of the Virginia Company. Washington DC was created in 1871 based on debts owed to foreign entities such as the royal chartered Hudson Bay Company and the royal-owned Belgian government as stated in the 1871 District of Columbia Organic Act. Do you see what the Vatican and the banksters of the City of London have in store for ALL nations, except perhaps Russia and China, for the nations are ALL corporations registered with the United States Securities Exchange Commission. In 1871, Albert Pike completed his military blueprint whereby Lucifer's one world government will be established following three World Wars. World Wars I and II are history, and the 'hot stage' of World War III could ignite at Easter 2020].
US Government will be scanning your Face at 20 Top Airports
March 11, 2019 — In March 2017, President Trump issued an executive order expediting the deployment of biometric verification of the identities of all travelers crossing US borders. That mandate stipulates facial recognition identification for "100 percent of all international passengers," including American citizens, in the top 20 US airports by 2021 . . . US Customs and Border Protection is scrambling to implement this "biometric entry-exit system," with the goal of using facial recognition technology on travelers aboard 16,300 flights per week—or more than 100 million passengers traveling on international flights out of the United States . . .

Trump Regime Electricity War in Venezuela
March 11, 2019 — Thursday Venezuela's hydroelectric power . . . cyber attacked . . . late afternoon rush hour to cause maximum disruption. Up to 80% of the country was affected, damage done more severe than initially thought. Weeks or months of planning likely preceded . . . considerable expertise needed to pull it off. On Friday, another cyber attack . . . a third one on Saturday, affecting parts of the country where power was restored, further complicating resolution of the problem . . . What's happening in Venezuela is similar to infecting Iran's Bushehr and Natanz nuclear power facilities with a Stuxnet malware computer virus in 2010, a likely joint US/Israeli intelligence operation. Edward Snowden blamed them for what happened. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: With so many former Bush officials now calling the shots in the Trump administration, particularly its Venezuela policy, the potential return of a "Nitro Zeus" virus, this time tailored to Venezuela, seems increasingly likely . . . US had cyber attack plan if Iran nuclear dispute led to conflict.
Press orchestrate a fake news "humanitarian crisis" in Venezuela, but totally ignore the real humanitarian crises in Yemen and Gaza? . . . Alfred Maurice de Zayas, sent by the UN to Venezuela to evaluate the situation finds no interest by any Western media or any Western government in his report? . . . Washington stole $21 billion of Venezuela's money, imposed sanctions to destabilize country and drive the Venezuelan government to its knees, blame Venezuelan socialism (essentially nationalization of the oil company) for bringing "starvation to the people" (paulcraigroberts.org).
Giving the Bomb to [Dönmeh Jew-ruled] Saudi Arabia's Dr. Strangelove
March 3, 2019 — The most dangerous foreign policy decision of the Trump administration . . . is its decision to share sensitive nuclear technology with Saudi Arabia and authorize US companies to build nuclear reactors in that country . . . The drive . . . is led by the half-wit son-in-law of the president, Jared Kushner, who met Tuesday with Salman in Riyadh . . . in that economic program are corporations such as IP3 International, a consortium of US companies led by several retired generals and admirals and others who stand to make millions . . . Westinghouse Electric Co. and other American companies are preparing to construct the facilities, which would allow Saudi Arabia to enrich and reprocess uranium. The secretive effort to give Saudi Arabia a nuclear capability . . . has been done without being reviewed by Congress, as required by law, and violates the Atomic Energy Act . . . There is little time left to halt the transfer of nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia. Iran, a mortal enemy of Saudi Arabia, will have no choice but to begin a nuclear weapons program if the Saudis build nuclear reactors . . . Full story: truthdig.com
Horrific Findings of UN Report on Israel's Massacre of Gaza Protectors
March 8, 2019 — The United Nations Human Rights Council have released a powerful report, on the Gaza 'Great Return March' demonstrations, stating that they have grounds to believe Israel committed International War Crimes against demonstrators during "large-scale civilian protests" . . . there is talk of Israel being brought to the International Court of Justice and tried for war crimes and violations of International Law against demonstrations that "were civilian in nature" . . .
Here are the most important points concluded in the report:
Comment: Faces of Gazan Children killed by Israeli soldiers appear in Tel Aviv.
- The commission found in the killings of 189 demonstrators between 30 March and 31 December 2018, 183 were killed with live ammunition, including 35 children, 3 health workers and 2 members of the Press. Only 29 of those killed were members of Palestinian armed groups.
- Only 4 Israeli snipers were slightly injured, none were killed by demonstrators.
- 23,313 Palestinian demonstrators were injured during the 2018 demonstrations, 6,106 with live ammunition, "contributing to the highest toll of injuries recorded in the Occupied Palestinian Territory since 2005 . . . Full story: mintpressnews.com
Israel Big Role in India's Escalating Conflict with Pakistan [aids Hindu PM Modi's Electioneering]
February 28, 2019 — It is difficult to see how Zionist nationalism will not leach into Hindu nationalism when Israel is supplying so many weapons to India . . . India was Israel's largest arms client in 2017, paying £530m for Israeli air defence, radar systems and ammunition, including air-to-ground missiles—most of them tested during Israel's military offensives against Palestinians and targets in Syria. Israel itself is trying to explain away its continued sales of tanks, weapons and boats to the Myanmar military dictatorship—while western nations impose sanctions on the government which has attempted to destroy its minority and largely Muslim Rohingya people . . . India has the world's third largest Muslim population after Indonesia and Pakistan—upward of 180 million people . . . Full story: independent.co.uk

The Alternative Skripal Narrative
February 17, 2019 — The recent titbit fed to us by Bellingcat (reputedly close to MI6) that a third Russian agent was booked on the flight from Heathrow to Moscow on the night of 4th March 2018—the flight taken by the two alleged GRU officers filmed in Salisbury—but didn't show up for it, has pointed to a possible solution to the baffling Skripal puzzle. What if the third man, or perhaps the man who was supposed to take his place, was by then lying in Salisbury Hospital in a coma from opiate poisoning? What if Sergei Skripal was a triple agent trying to escape back to Russia to tell the world the truth about the Steele Dossier, which he had helped to concoct as a scurrilous, obscene joke and which had unexpectedly become the new bible of the insane war party in Washington? . . .
Put those basic problems in the official narrative together with the speed with which the UK government blamed Russia for this event, when there was no more link between Russia and novichok than between Britain and the use of British-invented VX nerve agent to assassinate Kim Yong Un's half-brother in Kuala Lumpur airport. No nerve agent whose formula has been published is the monopoly of any nation, nor does its use incriminate any nation. This rush to judgment reveals a premeditated plan by Britain to use this event to sabotage Russia's Football World Cup (which they compared to Hitler's Olympics) as part of a long-term British goal to isolate, discredit and economically ruin Russia. The need for MI6 to prevent Skripal exposing the Steele Dossier, produced by Skripal's MI6 handlers, since it would show the degree of Britain's cynical interference in the American election to discredit Trump and destroy any rapprochement with Russia, formed the motive for MI6 to commit murder, for which it has a considerable reputation. Combining the two things, killing the Skripals and crucifying Russia for it, was no doubt seen as a great coup by MI6. It was seen as even more ingenious to follow up this alleged "chemical weapons" attack on British soil with the fake chemical attack at Douma staged by the White Helmets, founded and financed by MI6. This was aimed at relaunching the war to overthrow Assad and dismantle Syria, giving the Americans and the Israelis its oil fields, and allowing Qatari gas to be piped to Europe to replace Russian gas. All of these fit Britain's and NATO's known strategic goals. The speed of the knee-jerk response of NATO countries in expelling Russian diplomats, without any debate or demand for evidence in any parliament, raises the suspicion that this was planned not by MI6 alone but jointly with the CIA and other NATO secret services, which largely control supposedly democratic governments . . .

After Putin's Warning, Russian TV lists Nuclear Targets in US
February 25, 2019 — MOSCOW (Reuters) — Russian state television has listed US military facilities that Moscow would target in the event of a nuclear strike, and said that a hypersonic missile Russia is developing would be able to hit them in less than five minutes. The targets included the Pentagon and the presidential retreat in Camp David, Maryland. The report, unusual even by the sometimes-bellicose standards of Russian state TV, was broadcast on Sunday evening, days after President Vladimir Putin said Moscow was militarily ready for a "Cuban Missile"-style crisis if the United States wanted one."

Why is Vatican II so Important?
October 10, 2012 — When Pope John XXIII announced the creation of the Second Vatican Council (also known as Vatican II) in January 1959, it shocked the world. There hadn't been an ecumenical council—an assembly of Roman Catholic religious leaders meant to settle doctrinal issues—in nearly 100 years. "Many people maintained that with the definition of papal infallibility in 1870, councils were no longer needed . . ." Georgetown University professor Rev. John W. O'Malley says.
The council called between 2,000 and 2,500 bishops and thousands of observers, auditors, sisters, laymen and laywomen to four sessions at St. Peter's Basilica between October 11, 1962 and December 8, 1965. Cultural changes in the aftermath of World War II spelled a need to reconsider church practices. These meetings did just that—16 documents in total came out of it, laying a foundation for the church as we know it today.
Georgetown University professor Rev. John W.O'Malley says a theme of the documents was reconciliation. In keeping, they allowed for Catholics to pray with other Christian denominations, encouraged friendship with other non-Christian faiths, and opened the door for languages besides Latin to be used during Mass. Other new positions concerned education, the media and divine revelation. Most prominently, says Xavier University's Peter A. Huff, the Council highlighted the church's willingness to operate in the contemporary realm . . . "Pope John wanted to reinforce that missionary mandate, but he also wanted to create an environment of dialogue, where the church would engage in all the forces of the modern world" . . .

Comment: The Charismatic movement is basically an impersonation of the Pentecostal or Laodicean Church Age that ended in 1963 when Christ opened the Seven Seals. The movement among Catholics was lived from the start in the wake of the Second Vatican Council (1962–65) . . . They understood this new movement from the start as a grace for the renewal of the whole Catholic Church. For the first four or five years, the movement was known as the Catholic Pentecostal movement.
The Creation of God
Revelation 3:14, "To [William Branham] the angel of the Church of the Laodiceans write; These things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God".
The editors of the King James Bible must have been prescient men since they wrote "the church of the Laodiceans" rather than "the church in Laodicea." We find only praise to the faithful of Philadelphia; in Laodicea only censure. Here Jesus is designated the Amen of God; He is the "So be it" of God. Amen stands for finality. It stands for approval. It stands for prevailing promise. It stands for unchanging promise. It stands for the Seal of God. He is the faithful and true witness who changes not and will certainly fulfil His threats upon self-willed egalitarians imbued with the spirit of Laodicea, who favour classless democratic equality—communism, humanism, feminism, transgenderism, zoomorphism, globalism, multiculturalism which is miscegenation, marriage equality, homosexuality, interfaith dialogue, rebellion against the Absolute of God's unchanging Word and the ordained offices (Matthew 4:4; Ephesians 4:13-16).
Can you recognize this spirit?
Ancient Laodicea was overthrown by earthquake in AD62 under emperor Nero. Like its dispensational antitype, Laodicea was "rich, and increased with goods, and in need of nothing"—so wealthy it quickly recovered from its own resources and soon resumed its former glory. After an earthquake sinks California at the close of the Gentile dispensation, the united States in covenant with Rome and international Jewry, her dollar refinanced with gold backing and holding a mortgage over all other nations, will quickly recover. Laodicea formed the point where three roads converged and met—religion, politics and demon power—a perfect type of the united States which is at the same crossroads under the Fourth Seal, and will shortly be smitten by "a great earthquake such as was not since men were upon earth" (Revelation 16:18).
"Laodicea means 'people's rights,' or 'justice of the peoples.' Was there ever a time like the present that has seen ALL nations rising up and demanding equality, socially and financially? This is the age of Judaeo-communism where all men are supposedly equal, though it is only so in theory. This is the age of political parties who call themselves Christian Democrats, and Christian Socialists, etc. According to our liberal theologians Jesus was a socialist and the early church under the guidance of the Spirit practiced socialism, and thus we ought to do so today.
John 17:22-23, "The glory which You gave Me I have given them; that they may be one, even as We are one: I in them, and You in Me, in order that they may become complete and perfectly united in one; and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them, even as You have loved Me".
There can be no doubt as to the significance of this primary number one. In all languages it is the symbol of unity. As a cardinal number it denotes unity; as an ordinal it denotes primacy. Unity being indivisible, and not made up of other numbers, is therefore independent of all others, and is the source of all others; so with the Deity. The great First Cause is independent of all. All stand in need of Him, and He needs no assistance from any.
"One" excludes all difference, for there is no second with which it can either harmonize or conflict.
When it is written: "Hear, O Israel, the Lord thy God is one Lord," it excludes absolutely another Lord: it excludes, therefore, all idolatry.
Hence the First Commandment declares "You shall have NO OTHER GODS" (Exodus 20:3). It asserts that there is in God a sufficiency which needs no other; and an independence which admits no other.
It marks the beginning. We must begin with God. All our words and works must be characterized by the first Words of the Bible: "In the beginning GOD." Nothing is right that does not begin with Him. "God first" is the voice of Scripture. "Seek ye FIRST the kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matthew 6:33) is the testimony of Christ. "God first" is the great proclamation. The angels sang: "Glory to God in the highest." This was the beginning of their song. And it was after this that they sang of "good-will" towards man. This, too, must be the great principle governing all our testimony and our work. We cannot give "glory to God" without doing good to men. And there is no real good-will for men which does not spring from a desire to glorify God (Number in Scripture by E.W. Bullinger). The eternal Spirit was alone, there was no light, no darkness, no atoms or molecules, and as He had not created anything . . . even in His great thinking, He was not even God for this word means "object of worship," and there was nothing to worship Him.
God was thinking . . . since His thoughts are complete He will never have another thought. God is not now thinking or even taking counsel with Himself. Being omniscient and infinite, His thoughts and His foreknowledge are the attributes of Himself and therefore eternal with Him. Thus Malachi 3:6 and Hebrews 13:8 assure us He can never change His mind or His ways. Psalm 119:89, "Forever, O LORD, Your Word is settled in heaven."
This diagram represents the eternal Spirit, the self-existent One who is Elohim the sum of all deity, the One Person of God. It is not the circle, but the dots in the circle that are God. They represent His eternal thoughts, which are the Attributes of Himself—what He is and forever will be. In eternity, God was alone with His thoughts. There were no Seraphim or Cherubim, no angels, no Lucifer, no light or dark, atoms or molecules, just God alone with His thoughts. He was neither the Father nor was He the Son. He was only potentially Father until his first son was born; and only potentially the Son until those Attributes were manifested (Colossians 2:9). Indeed, since God is an object of worship and there was nothing to worship Him, He was only potentially God.
A 'father' is a man who has begotten a child; a 'son' or 'daughter' is one begotten by a father. Throughout the dispensations, one could only be begotten as a Son or Daughter of God by a clear revelation of "the present Truth" quickened in them. This changes with each of the nine dispensations of Christ's Church, and as understanding comes by hearing "the present Truth"—what Jesus is doing now—it is not possible for a young child to be born-again (Romans 10:17; Galatians 3:2, 5; II Peter 1:12). Children of Adam's race are born "saved" to the age of accountability; believing children may be baptized. Parents—"Train up your child in the way he should go" (Proverbs 22:6): take them from learning to understanding 'why' explained by scriptural shadows and types so they can see 'how' present events are made clear by prophecy, and that faith is tangible and purposeful.
God's thoughts are not like your thoughts or my thoughts that too often blossom but pass away, never coming to fruition. His thoughts are eternal and they are real and will come to pass in their designated and decreed season and time. As such they are unchangeable and can never be added to or diminished for they are the Attributes of "that which is perfect": the Logos or fullness of the Word (I Corinthians 13:10). In Him were Attributes to be God, which means there were Attributes to be Creator. In Him were Attributes to be a Father, Son, Healer, Saviour, Redeemer, a God of Mercy and God of Justice. But He could only receive glory unto Himself if there were an afflicted people in need of healing, a potentially lost people crying for salvation, a needy people desperate for provision, mercy and justice; and a wicked estranged people who had earned His wrath.
Only under the manifestation of such circumstances can He express His Attributes and gather glory to Himself. It would be unjust were He to arbitrarily cause them to fall in sin and death so that they would cry out for forgiveness and redemption, afflict them with illness, or deprive them of necessities to cause them to plead deliverance, healing and provision in order that He could display His Attributes. Since He is the God of Love and also of Justice, He placed His people in a bountiful paradise, apprised of His will and the blessings of obedience as well as the penalty for unbelief and disobedience, with free moral agency to determine their own destiny by returning mutual love, or enmity.
In Ephesians 1:3-14 Paul explains that God had a secret plan and purpose in creation as we discussed in Newsletter 516 (Pentecost types the Gentile Dispensation). "How we praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every blessing in the Logos because we belong to Christ, even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless in His Presence. In love He predestinated us to be recognized as His children through Jesus Christ according to the kind intent of His own will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He has bestowed on us in the beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood and the forgiveness of trespasses, to the measure of the riches of His grace; which He lavished on us, making known to us in all wisdom and insight the secret of His purpose, according to His kind intention which he purposed in Christ: a plan to be brought to completion in the fullness of times (Gk. 'kairos,' opportunity, or "once in a lifetime" times. See Newsletter 286, Purpose in Life) to unite everything together in Christ, things in heaven, and things on earth."
"In Christ we too were made His Heritage, being predestinated according to His purpose, who works out everything in agreement with the design of His own will, so that we, the first to put our hope in Christ, might bring praise to His glory. In Him you also, after listening to the Message of Truth, the good news of your salvation, have as believers in Him been sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, which is the pledge of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory".
Being omniscient, the eternal Spirit knew all things that will ever be before creation was manifest and He made provision to ensure His purpose would be achieved. His purpose would take form through "election according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification by the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the Blood of Jesus Christ" or regeneration (I Peter 1:2).
You see, election is based on God's foreknowledge of all choices of all men before the Logos was expressed. All that voluntarily manifest His will, which is His Word for their day, prove to be His elect because in expressing His Life their life is the Token on display. They are His Attributes foreknown and crucified in Christ on Calvary in God's great thinking and can never perish, but have everlasting Life since they were foreknown in Christ the Logos before He was made flesh (Revelation 13:8).
Romans 8:20-30, "We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover those whom He did predestinate, He also called: and whom He called, He also justified: and whom He justified, He has also glorified".
If you read the remainder of Romans 8 you will see that like the first Adam's wife Eve, God's elect can never come into condemnation as they are His own Attributes foreknown as crucified in Christ on Calvary, justified, raised in Him, seated in Christ in Heavenly places, which is His eternal thoughts now being expressed as His Word. (See also Romans 4:13-25; II Corinthians 5:13-21; Ephesians 2:1-10; 4:30). We were all in Christ the Logos, who is God. So if you are elect of God you were an eternal 'dot' in the circle, an Attribute of God in Christ, a gene of Christ you receive in your soul by faith in the Word for your hour, which is your new birth (Luke 8:11; I Peter 1:22-25).
Being omniscient God knew the finite number of elect souls who are His Heritage in Christ; in His eternal thinking He foresaw the glorified appearance of each one—the colour of your eyes, your stature and everything about you, "All the Father has given will come to Him, and no one can come to Him except the Father draws them" by the revelation of the Word for their hour. So when the last saint predestinated to Christ's end-time Bride has been baptized into the Body, the Gentile dispensation will end. The sleeping saints in theophany will put on glorified flesh, and after a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit in the manifestation of the Sons of God, we who are alive and remain will change in the atoms, our mortal spirit will be replaced by our theophany, and together we will be translated to meet our glorified Lord Jesus for the Wedding Supper of the Lamb "in the air".
Proverbs 23:7, "As a man thinks in his heart, so is he." So the Bible is the story of God changing His form or unfolding Himself from the Attributes of His eternal thinking through the spoken Word by faith to the flesh of His glorified family. In this form the "saved" will worship God throughout eternity.
If you memorise four important Hebrew words and their meanings you will understand many mysteries:
bara' to create (Gk.) ex nihlo, out of nothing (but thought).
'asah to make or fashion from existing material.
yatsar to form, mould or squeeze into shape.
banah to make by rebuilding or constructing as an extension or continuation (as Eve was a continuation of the first Adam, and Christ's Bride is the continuation of the last Adam, being in Him from eternity which explains how we have eternal Life.
Genesis 1:1, "In the beginning [first, chief, head, best], God created bara the heaven and the earth [out of nothing but His great thinking]." God's thinking was finished and He will never have another thought, for "the beginning" was when TIME began.
God's first creation was the Logos which means "thought in speech" or concept. Many Scriptures such as Ezekiel 1:28, I John 1:5, Luke 16:8, John 12:35-36, Ephesians 5:8, and I Thessalonians 5:5 instruct us that God is Light and His Family are the Children of Light. The natural realm which we can contact by the senses of our flesh and mortal spirit types the Spiritual realm which we can contact by the sixth sense called faith. So "In the beginning [when] God created the heaven and the earth" He began a PROCESS encompassing perhaps trillions of years before the six thousand year days required to prepare earth for vegetable and animal life. As Brother Branham explained, an immense Sun or cosmic light manifest in the nothingness of space like the Logos except it was material substance:
". . . an atom bursted and the sun came into existence. She whirled for hundreds of millions of years, forming clinkers, and burning, and forming like it is today; still burning, still breaking atoms. If the atomic bomb would ever get let loose, the atomic chain would make 'asah this earth like the Sun, yonder, just bursting and blowing. And if you could stand over on another continent and look off at this, it would look like another sun, where the atoms was a-burning this earth, if that chain would ever get let loose and it just start turning, whirling like that. Millions and millions of miles reach these big flames of billions of Fahrenheit, of heat that goes off that Sun."
"Now, watch this now. Beautiful. Now, He made the sun. Then the first thing you know, a big clinker fell off of it, weighed just about like this earth, went "Spew!" Then this Logos here now, the Son of God, is watching it. He lets it fall for a hundred million years and He stops it. Then another one flies off, and He lets it fall for millions of years, then He stops it. Now, we're standing, watching it come into existence."
"Now, He's got something in His mind. And what's He doing? He's writing His first Bible yatsar. The first Bible that man ever looked to was the stars, the zodiac . . . Now, He put that all in the sky and placed it out, all these meteors, pieces of sun, hanging off here . . ." (COD, p. 16:34-36).
The first creation and manifestation "in the beginning" was God Himself when He expressed the Logos, which was the Son of God. Having the appearance of Light, it was the Shekinah Jesus described when He lifted up his eyes to heaven and said, "Father, the hour is come; glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You: as You have given Him authority over all mankind, that He should give eternal Life to all You have given Him. Eternal Life is knowing You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent. I have glorified You on the earth, having accomplished the work which You gave Me to do; and now glorify Me, Father, with the glory which I had in Your own Presence before the world existed. I have manifested Your Name . . ." (John 17:1-6).
This explains what Jesus was saying when He told the Pharisees, "Before Abraham was, I Am" (John 8:58)? He is God expressed as the Logos, the Fire that spoke with Moses from the burning bush, the same Pillar of Fire and Cloud that have appeared and been photographed in our day. God is Light. Were you leaning over the banisters of heaven with eyes of Supernatural seeing, you would have witnessed a small Light forming. This was the Logos or complete thought of God, the sum of deity, beginning to express Himself in creation and time.
This was "the Beginning of the creation of God." Not the beginning of God's creation—which was "the heaven and the earth" (Genesis 1:1), and not the Man Jesus who would be born of a virgin trillions of years later—but the beginning of God transforming Himself into creation. God was (Gk. 'kenos'), pouring or emptying Himself ex nihilo (not another substance) into creation. This is not the creation of a person other than God but the creation or initiating expression of Himself in visible, material form. That word "beginning" means originator, author, beginner, or living, personal principle of the whole creation, hence there is no principal (foundation) life of spirits outside the world order which is comprehended in Him. This Originator precedes the origin of the physical heavens and earth which came forth ex nihilo from Christ, the Logos.
Colossians 1:15-17: "Jesus Christ is the image, likeness or expression of the invisible God (possessing the divine nature and absolute moral excellence), the firstborn of all creation: for IN Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: ALL things were created by Him, and for Him: and He is Himself self-existent and therefore before all things, and IN Him all things were put together and are now held together." However, since man has rejected the Logos, Brother Branham declared, "The world is falling apart." Here Paul is NOT speaking of Jesus Christ the Man, but of Jesus Christ the Logos who would later manifest as the Man.
Christ the Logos and glory of God now took form in the theophany of a Man, metaphorically referred to as the Tree of Life, whose fellowship is promised to everyone who is born-again (Revelation 2:7; 22:14). Before the Fall He walked and communed with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. As Melchisedec He met Abraham, approximately nineteen hundred and fifty years before the virgin birth of the Man Jesus (Ussher). This personal pre-manifestation of Jesus who served communion to Abraham and received his tithes was the Father of the Son of God. Moses was not permitted to see His face, but he saw His back parts when He passed into the rock and said, "It looked like a man" (Exodus 33:18-33; I Corinthians 10:4). In the fullness of time He manifest in virgin-born flesh as Jesus of Nazareth, our Redeemer.
When the Angel Gabriel spoke with the Virgin Mary, he quickened her faith in the prophecies of Genesis 3:15 and Isaiah 7:14, and his Word was transformed into the cells that would become the flesh of Jesus (I Timothy 3:16). Now Paul speaks of Christ the Logos creating Himself in the beginning of the new creation of God-men "who owe their birth neither to human blood, nor to physical urge, nor to human design, but to God" (John 1:14). Colossians 1:18-19: "And He is the Head of the Body, the Church: who is the beginning (or source of Life to the Church, and the Principality of all things), the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He might have the pre-eminence. For it pleased the Father that all divine fullness—the sum total of divine perfection, powers and attributes—should pervade and dwell permanently in Him as God's Temple".
Jesus is not a second, third or any person other than God Himself. He is the Logos or sum total of the Attributes of the invisible God expressed in the visible, material form of Man. He is the Creator manifest in flesh. He is the beginning of the creation of God in the sense that He caused the universe to begin to exist, for He is the Author of all things. Here is what Brother Branham said:
"The words are, "He is the BEGINNER or AUTHOR of the creation of God." Now we know for a surety that Jesus is God, very God. He is the Creator. John 1:3, "All things were made by Him, and without Him nothing made that was made."
He is the One of Whom it is said, Genesis 1:1, "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." Also it says in Exodus 20:11, "For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day." [Read Isaiah 44:24, "THUS SAITH THE LORD, Your Redeemer, He who formed you from the womb, I am the Lord, the Maker of all things; I alone stretched out the heavens and founded the earth by Myself" Ed]. See, there is no doubt that He is the Creator. He was the Creator of a FINISHED PHYSICAL CREATION [and there is no change in specie].
Surely we can now see what these words mean. To have any other interpretation would mean that God created God. How could God be created when He, Himself, is the Creator?
But now He is standing in the midst of the Church. As He stands there revealing who He is in this last age, He calls Himself the "Author of the creation of God." This is ANOTHER CREATION. This has to do with the Church. This is a special designation of Himself. He is the CREATOR of that church. The heavenly Bridegroom created his own Bride. As the Spirit of God, He came down and created in the Virgin Mary the cells from which His body was born. I want to repeat that. He created the very cells in the womb of Mary for that body. It was not enough for the Holy Spirit to simply give life to a human ovum supplied by Mary. That would have been sinful mankind producing a body. That would not have produced the "Last Adam." Of Him it was said "Lo a Body have You (Father) prepared for Me." God (not Mary) provided that body. Mary was the human incubator and she carried that Holy Child and brought Him to birth. It was a God-man. He was the Son of God. He was of the NEW creation. Man and God met and joined; He was the first of this new race. He is the head of this new race.
Colossians 1:18, "And He is the head of the Body, the Church: Who is the beginning, the first-born from the dead; that in all things He might have the pre-eminence."
II Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away, behold all things are become new."
There you can see that though man was of the OLD ORDER or creation, now in UNION WITH CHRIST, he has become the NEW CREATION of God.
Ephesians 2:10, "For we are His workmanship CREATED IN UNION WITH CHRIST JESUS unto good works."
Ephesians 4:24, "And put on the NEW MAN which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the Truth."
This New Creation is not the old creation made over, or it could not be called a new creation. This is exactly what it says it is, "NEW CREATION." It is another creation, distinct from the old one. No longer is He dealing by ways of the flesh. That was how He dealt with Israel. He chose Abraham, and of Abraham's issue through the godly Isaac line. But now out of every kindred, tribe and nation He has purposed a new creation. He is the first of that creation. He was God created in the form of man. Now by His Spirit He is creating many Sons unto Himself: God the Creator, creating Himself a part of His creation. This is the true revelation of God. This was His purpose. This purpose took form through election. That is why He could look right down to the last age when all would be over and see Himself still in the midst of the Church, as author of this New Creation of God. His Sovereign power brought it to pass. By His own decree He elected the members of this New Creation. He predestinated them to the adoption of children according to the good pleasure of His will. By His omniscience and omnipotence He brought it to pass. How else could He know that He would be standing in the midst of the Church receiving glory from His brethren if He did not make sure? All things He knew, and all things He worked out according to what He knew in order that His purpose and good pleasure be brought to pass.
Ephesians 2:11 "In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of Him who works all things after the counsel of His own will." Hallelujah! Aren't you glad that you belong to Him!" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 336:1-4).
God thought of Himself as male and female—the feminine part is the soul of His elect that was created at the point of your natural birth. But since you were conceived in sin and born into a world under Satan's dominion, you are part of this world whose nature ruled your body and mortal spirit so that your soul lay dead in sin and trespassers until it was quickened by agreement with the Word for your age and reunited with its Husband and Redeemer (Psalm 51:5; Ephesians 2:1-3). Now it is bringing your spirit and body subject to the Word.
When God formed the first Adam his wife was in him too, so God put him to sleep and took a rib from his side and separated the feminish traits from his mortal spirit to make the by-product banah, Eve (Genesis 2:18-24; 5:1-2).
As God completed the old creation long before He formed Eve as a by-product or continuation of the creation of man, which fell, Jesus was the beginning and the Beginner of the creation of God, the new creation of God-men (Revelation 3:14). As His Bride we are not another creation, but the continuation of the same "NEW CREATION" in Christ our Husband: a creation that cannot fall.
When God formed the last Adam, being that He was the Logos manifest in flesh His wife was in Him as Attributes of God's thoughts, and He saw male and female on Calvary. When the last Adam fell asleep, God took His wife from His side in the form of the Holy Spirit, which came back upon His elect from the day of Pentecost. The elect paid for her sins when she died in Christ on Calvary, and when He was raised for our justification, we were raised and quickened to Life as Attributes in Him (Romans 4:25; 5:15-21; 6:6-23; II Corinthians 5:14-17; Galatians 2:20; Colossians 3:4).
We have paid for our sins in Christ on Calvary "There is therefore now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has made us free from the law of sin and death" (Romans 8:1-2). We simply have to recognize our part of the Word and find our position in the Body. The Bride is a part of the Husband. You will only recognize you are His Bride if you can recognize your day and it's Message. You can't recognize the Word for a day gone by. That part of the Body is made up.
God had to become flesh and bone in order to fulfil His foreknowledge and the law of the Kinsman Redeemer because as the Spirit He could not identify with the sins of the world nor surrender eternal Life and die for us.
If you follow the diagrams you will see that Jesus came from the Attribute to theophany before He was flesh. As He was the Word before He was flesh, Jesus could not sin. We bypassed our theophany, angel or Word form Body, and came straight from the Attribute to flesh to be tested by sin and manifest the Word for our day, giving Him glory in overcoming. Jehovah was the Word made flesh in Jesus; we are the flesh becoming Word. Only in Christ is God a creation, and only His Word can be redeemed. Cain and his Serpent's seed hybrids—both natural and spiritual, cannot be redeemed as they are not His Word (Colossians 1:12-29).
Jesus is our pattern and type. After the sacrifice was washed in the Jordan, the Spirit anointed and dedicated Him as God's Temple. What was He doing? He was redeeming that part of the earth of which He was made in the womb of Mary from His Word and the dust that she ate. Only in Christ is God a creation. Since Pentecost He has been redeeming the rest of His Attributes by three steps of grace—justification, sanctification, and the baptism with the Holy Spirit.
He redeems earth in the same way. It was justified and baptized by the Great Flood. It was sanctified by the Blood that flowed from His side, and will receive its baptism of Fire—both natural and Spiritual—after the White Throne Judgment when it will be made into a new creation where the redeemed will dwell throughout eternity. Revelation 21:5, "And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. These words are true and faithful".
Jesus is the Beginner and the beginning of the new creation when He was born of the virgin; we who are born-again during the Pentecostal Feast are His Wife, the continuation of the SAME creation. In the new heavens and new earth God will be worshipped through eternity in the form of His glorified Family, Jesus Christ and His Bride, for we are the House of God and place of worship, New Jerusalem (Deuteronomy 16:1-6; Revelation 21:1 – 22:5). "The city has no need of the sun or moon to shine upon it, for the glory of God and the Lamb is its Light. The nations of the saved will walk by its Light: and the kings of the earth will bring their splendour. Its gates remain open all day, and there is no night! Into it they will bring the glory and honour of the nations".
This diagram illustrates God's one eternal purpose—the creation of Himself in the flesh of His glorified Family. Ephesians 1:3-12, "How we praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every blessing in the Logos because we belong to Christ, even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless in His Presence. In love He has predestinated us to be recognized as His children through Jesus Christ according to the kind intent of His own will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He has bestowed on us in the beloved. In Him we have redemption through His Blood and the forgiveness of trespasses, to the measure of the riches of His grace; which He lavished on us, making known to us in all wisdom and insight the secret of His purpose, according to His kind intention which he purposed in Christ: a plan to be brought to completion in the fullness of times (Gk. 'kairos,' opportunity, or "once in a lifetime" times) to unite everything in Christ, things in heaven, and things on earth."
"In Christ we too were made God's Heritage, being predestinated according to His purpose, who works out everything in agreement with the design of His own will, that we should be to the praise of His glory . . ." nl1062.htm
