"Jewish" Activist Rewrites Bible
PHILADELPHIA (JTA) August 22, 2000 -- Retired publisher, Irvin Borowsky, 76, established the American Interfaith Institute in 1982 to work with "Christian" theologians, Bible publishers, and other influential people in the religious world.
His goals included modifying the King James version of the Bible in favor of "hate-free" texts, making the same inroads with the sources of children's Bibles, urging hotels to replace millions of Bibles with more acceptable versions and eventually impacting on sermons discussing Jesus' life and death.
Only the American Bible Society which changed its texts six years ago . . . has been cooperative until now, but a number of children's Bible publishers have been quicker to make recommended changes, Borowsky reports.
Borowsky joined the Evangelical Christian Publishers of America as an associate member, and more recently was named to the national advisory board of the Salvation Army. (Plans to eliminate hatred to Christ, Christianity and goyim (i.e. human cattle or Gentiles) from the Talmud have not been announced).

Big Blue has a Red Heart
NEW YORK, (ABC) August 28,2000 -- A low-key White House regulation change, signed by Bill Clinton on August 3 at the urging of IBM, Unisys, Hewlett-Packard and NCR, will allow the Chinese military to buy some of the most powerful U.S. computers without a government license or security review.
(Once IBM, Unisys, HP, NCR were U.S. manufacturers. Now they export U.S. manufacturing jobs to China, Mexico or other low-cost labor markets while importing their cheap immigrant labor. Their gain (lower wages) is America's loss. Especially in terms of human lives that may be lost when China does gain the nuclear capability to attack the U.S.).

According to the Bayerischen Rundfunk TV Program "Perspektive", in a segment called "Big-Sister" shown on the August 28, Orwells 1984 is already out of date. There are already 3000 Satellites in Space. Many are used to spy on countries and citizens throughout the world. Major players in satellite espionage are the USA, France. Great Britain, India and Russia, with Germany rushing to join in.
US Satellites are capable of picking up objects as small as 10 centimetres in diameter, the TV Program showed infra-red pictures of Frankfurt Airport taken at night and it was easy to see individuals walking around.
The Program also showed Border Patrols spot illegals crossing into Germany by night. Cameras mounted in helicopters that turn night into day are so sensitive they can detect the warmth in areas where people have tried to hide.
Technology also exists that can "look and listen" through walls, to pick up Computer emissions a dozen meters away, read all our telephone, fax and e-mail messages, and this is only the capability they admitted to!
My Shield and Strong Tower
The meek shall inherit the earth. Did you notice that when Israel was on their way to the Promised Land, God supplied all of their needs? They simply stepped out by faith believing, and began walking. Whenever they had a need, God provided it. When they had need of food, God sent quail. When they had need of water, Moses smote the rock. When they had need of healing, God told Moses to erect a brass serpent, and whosoever looked upon it was healed.
Today we are journeying to our Promised Land where Jesus has gone to prepare a place for us. But first, we'll take a one thousand-year stopover in the Millennium. Like the children of Israel, we don't understand quite how God is going to get us there. How He will raise the sleeping saints, or change our corruptible flesh to incorruptible glorified bodies and replace our mortal spirit with immortality? Even scientists haven't suggested a technology that might work.
We don't begin to know these things. There is nothing we can do of ourselves but yield to Him, obeying and trusting His Word, walking in the Light God is manifesting now, looking to His grace alone
We have not only to understand His Word. We must also learn to trust and believe that It will manifest what It said when we have need. Paul said, one could have the gift of prophesy, understand all the mysteries, and all knowledge; and possess such faith that they could remove mountains, yet still not be born-again. But one who is born-again, and can potentially do all these things, must still come to a point of maturity wherein he has the confidence that God's Word not only can but will fulfill what It said for them personally without third party help or consultation.
Although we are Brothers and Sisters whose pastors are concerned for our Spiritual health and development, our Christian experience must be an individual walk with the Lord. Jesus and us alone in intimate union, like that between a man and his wife, which no one else may share or know about.
Paul compares the natural marriage relationship with the intimacy between Christ and His saints to illustrate how trust grows into mutual confidence the closer our union merges two into one. In the natural marriage the woman trusts her husband by being a "keeper at home", confident he will provide for her and their family; a home-maker, creating an environment where her husband will be lord alone. He will protect and strengthen his domain. And she will maintain her household, not run out into the world trying to earn independence from her husband or competing with men in the work force.
The Bride of Christ needs to grow beyond knowledge to character, relying upon her Husband's grace towards her rather than what she can acquire for herself. We are not meant to fend for ourselves. We should have the nature of a lamb. Like the children of Israel we must step out by faith believing. If we have faith we need to exercise faith because faith can't work until it is applied. Rather than self-seeking, if we know the One in Whom we have believed, we will be persuaded that He is able to keep that which we have committed unto Him against that day. And this also applies in the natural realm.
Consider Paul. When God told him, "My grace is sufficient for you: for My strength is made perfect in your weakness," Paul began to boast of his own weakness and insufficiency because once he learned to lean upon Jesus and cast his cares upon Him he became a living vessel, strong in Christ's power -- a written epistle of the Word in action. Beforehand his boast was of his own self-sufficiency: "Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the Law, blameless" -- the old school tie and all of that (Philippians 3:5-6). But once he had yielded to God, Jesus could demonstrate He is Jehovah Jireh, his "Provider", and Paul was made strong when he was weak. Now it was no longer Paul willing and running, but Christ always victorious in him.
Paul said, "As the true Church or Christian is subject to Christ, so let wives be subject unto their own husbands in everything" (Ephesians 5:25). The natural always types the Spiritual. Our objective as Christians should not be how hard we can work for Christ, but how fully we can yield our body, mind and soul, so that He may perform His works through us (John 14:12).
Have you ever wondered why the Word sometimes just doesn't seem to perform? Could it be because you are trying to use God's gift instead of stepping back in confidence and trust, giving God the pre-eminence to use His Own Gift. He knows how It works, and after all, He is sovereign . . . isn't He?
If the husband or Christ is our Provider, let us trust and have confidence that he will provide. He understands His position and knows His commitment. Let us find our place and rest in it, not smite the Rock the second time like the denominationals.
Paul wrote, "Let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband" (Ephesians 5:33). That word "reverence" means to venerate and defer to in reverential obedience "even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord" or ruler over me (I Peter 3:6). That's in the natural. But the natural reflects our invisible union with Christ, so God said, "a woman serves Me as she obeys her husband" (Genesis 3:16; Ephesians 5:22).
Brother Branham frequently stated that the natural woman types the church or spiritual woman who is (or claims to be) the Bride of Christ. And that you can discern the spiritual state of a congregation by the behaviour of the women who attend that assembly. And that's true.
Thyatira means, "Dominating Female". The Thyatira Church Age, also known as the Dark Ages, was characterized by the dominant force of a woman, the Roman Catholic church, who ruthlessly invades, conquers and despotically controls all. Now a dominating female is the greatest curse in the world. The wisest man the world ever saw was Solomon. He said, "I applied my heart to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and the reason of things and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness; and I find of all the sinful follies none has been so ruinous in seducing one from God as idolatrous women, more bitter than death is the woman whose heart is snares and nets and whose hands are bands: whoever pleases God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her. Behold, this I have found, says the preacher, weighing one thing after another to find out the reason; which I am still seeking. One upright man amongst a thousand have I found; but an upright woman among all the thousand in my harem have I not found." Ecclesiastes 7:25-28.
Paul said, "I suffer not a woman to teach or to usurp authority." From the Garden of Eden onward, woman has constantly and successfully tried to take control over the man. And today it is a woman's world with the goddess of America being a naked female. As the female idol falling out of the skies at Ephesus (whose arms were iron bars) characterized the first or Ephesian Age, her power has grown until she has gained absolute authority, usurped by her iron disposition. In the New World Order, which is the Tribulation, Rome will rule the world.
Being a dominating female is antichrist and the seeds of the Roman Catholic Church are in her though she may deny this ever so vehemently. When it comes to the Word, Let God be true and every man's word a lie.
Paul explained, "A man indeed ought not to have uncut hair, (which is a sign of submission) because he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. . . But if a woman has uncut hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering, to signify she is under submission to her husband and is not usurping authority over the man". A woman who cuts her hair signifies she has rejected the authority of God and man and is not fit to pray. Indeed, her husband can put her away in divorcement because she has dishonored him (I Corinthians 11:5, 7, 15).
Man was made in the image of God for the glory of God and is to have the rule as God is to have dominion. However woman is made in the image of man for the glory of the man and is to be under submission, glorifying her man by reflecting his Christian attributes. Likewise the glory of God is Christ. He came to declare the Father, not Himself. God said, "I had already glorified My Name in You and will glorify It again in Your Bride when she reflects Your glorious Attributes" (John 12:28; 17:22). And when you see Christ's glorious Attributes you have seen the glory of the Father (John 14:9; II Corinthians 5:16).
Because the woman, the church, has forsaken her supposed-to-be Husband, Christ the Word, by moving the ancient boundaries so she can run off to make love to the world, the people of today have no defence. Look at the Russians, they fell under Jewish Communism in the 1917 takeover from New York because they had no defence and strong tower in the Word. In Europe, America, once Great Britain and her Commonwealth today, godless Jewish Communism has taken over because the second Eve, being deceived, thought she could over rule her espoused Husband, by usurping His Word with creeds and New Age theories.
As there can be but one captain to a ship, there can only be one head in a household. We move the ancient boundaries at our peril. Those boundaries are the Absolute of God's Word. Anything contrary places us onto the Devil's territory and into death. We must honor the ancient boundaries.
I know one woman who always expresses a contrary opinion because she has no Absolute. If one declares perilous times ahead, she will say, "There have always been troubles". If one excuses the condition of some furniture or the neglect of a supplier to meet a certain standard, she says, "What does it matter?", or "Why are you worrying"? She knows not the ancient boundaries and how God's elect strive to match standards as they seek to attain the Absolute of His Word. This woman has no faith and aspires to no standard. Everything is "situational" to afford her momentary contradiction of any body on any subject. Hebrews 13:8 has no meaning, for her there are no rules.
A second woman I know has a dominating spirit that prevents her from humbling herself to God's unchanging Word. In conversation she represents the remarks of the previous speaker in the form of instruction, although it was news to her. She knows no Absolute, recognises no ancient boundaries and does not accept that the relationship of a man and his wife types the relationship between Christ and His Bride. Although she is constantly trying to figure-out God and the mystery of life she will never understand these matters until she sees that the natural types the Spiritual, and that the types cannot be broken. So long as she is trying to bend God's Word to produce an outcome acceptable to her worldly thinking, she is taking herself farther away from God and the answers she so earnestly desires.
Like Frank Sinatra who sang, "I Did It My Way", she is her own worst enemy in her personal and spiritual life. God did not create man to do things his way but to build relationship with Him in the unity of His thinking, laying aside the desires and "good ideas" of flesh and mortal spirit to discover and put on the mind of Christ and do things His Way (I Corinthians 1:10; Ephesians 4:13; Philippians 1:27; 2:5; Colossians 3:3). God is not very far from every son of Adam, and He wants us to find Him, to learn His will and to rest in Him as our Provider, our Redeemer, our Healer, our defence and fortress, and to do things His Way.
If you have not yet entered His rest, come NOW, whilst it is called today. When the last one has entered His rest, God will withdraw His hand. Then there'll never be another soul saved. Already the hour is so late the only revival today is in the heart of Christ's Bride. Lay down foolish pride, flee Frank Sinatra's "Rat Pack", and come into Christ Who has already done the Work you needed but are unworthy to accomplish for yourself. Receive It and enter into His Rest.
In the Old Testament, when Elijah was preparing for a revival, he told the people to call all their idol worshipers to the mount. Then he said, "If the Lord be God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him" (I Kings 18:21). William Branham, the Elijah of this last day presented the same challenge: "Come out of idolatry My people, that you be not partakers of Rome's sins, and that you receive not of her plagues" (Revelation 18:4).
What made Russia communist was trust in the woman, the Orthodox church, instead of Rest in God's revealed Word. She professed Christianity but is nothing the world with God's Name on it. People became discouraged with her promises that could not be fulfilled by icons, images, saints and gods that took away all of their money and gave back nothing in return. The creeds they had for faith were no defence against the deceptive promises of Communism controlled by the wealthiest of self-styled "Jews", like the Warburgs, Schiffs, and Rothschilds. And (the once) Christian Russia fell because the woman, the church, was a deceiver and was deceived. "I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence". Our Head is Christ the Word, not the church.
In the West, people have become so educated and smart, they think they have the Scripture figured out until they can explain all about the power of God, and the Atonement. But God is His Own Interpreter. He interprets His Word by bringing It to pass or by sending a vindicated prophet. I have just read some notes by a minister who claims it is possible through this end-time Message to regenerate our loved ones vicariously! That's one step away from Rome's teachings on purgatory and Indulgences. Providing you can keep the Token over them, they will be sanctified and retain their name on the Book of Life which ensures they will be granted into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment. But salvation is not synonymous with election and new birth.
We can't explain God. God is not known by knowledge. He's known by faith. You'll never learn anything about Him except by faith. And don't try to match wits with the Devil because he'll always beat you. But when you humbly have faith that God is able, Satan is defeated. He who believes the simple promise, "Whatsoever things you desire, when you pray, believe you receive them," defeats the Devil every time, and under any condition.
Elijah said, "Prophesy, you prophets of Baal, and let the God that answers by fire, be God." The Bible warns all who not heed the Message of William Branham, the Elijah of these last New Testament days, and cast away their idols of man-made traditions: trinities, false baptisms in three Titles, Apostle's Creeds (so-called), catechisms, etc., that they will be consumed with unquenchable fire (Malachi 4:1-3; Matthew 3:12; Acts 3:23).
One can go on learning about all of the secret societies, trying to sift true information from disinformation. But unless one has become an intimate of Christ, to what purpose is all of this study -- even if it is one hundred percent correct? We know the plan as far as Albert Pike developed it. Surely it has been further refined, but the basic plan for world hegemony remains the same, and it is according to the warnings of Scripture.
If we are in the faith, we will receive these things when they are revealed because they are a part of the PRESENT Truth in plain view ever since the opening of the Seven Seals. But faith, if it is faith will do what It said. In addition to possessing and understanding correct doctrine, which we might call "theory" and which Brother Branham called "the mechanics", we need the "practical" experience of the theory living through us, what the Prophet called "the dynamics" with the mechanics, or the Spirit-quickened Word.
The purpose of faith is not to accumulate "theory" but to manifest the Token Life of Christ -- in "Practice". The token or evidence of redemption in Moses' day was the blood of the Lamb on the lintel of the door. In this day the Blood is not the Token, the Life of Christ on display in us is the Token.
If we have the Token It will bring us under pre-eminence to the Word so that God can use us. Not so we can use Him. God will supply all of our needs. We simply need to step out by faith and began walking in the Light as He is in It, watching as more Light unfolds, and believing His Word will do what He promised us (I John 1:7). Whenever we have a need, our Husband the Word will provide. Rest in Him and He will see us through the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. nl134.htm
