Top Court Rejects City's Ten Commandments Tablet
WASHINGTON (Reuters) May 29, 2001 -- U.S. Supreme Court allowed the removal of a granite monument of the Ten Commandments from the front of an Indiana city hall, letting stand a ruling that the display unconstitutionally endorses religion.

Refusing to Save Africans
WASHINGTON (Boston Globe) June 11, 2001 -- Head of the U.S. Agency for International Development, Andrew Natsios, said money raised by a new global fund to fight AIDS should be used almost entirely for prevention services, not for the antiretroviral drugs. . . attempting to get the drugs to Africans any time soon would not be worth the effort because of the difficulties posed by a lack of roads, shortages of doctors and hospitals, wars and other problems.
In sub-Saharan Africa, more than 25 million people are infected and more than 17 million have already died. In South Africa, the rate of infection for all people 15 to 45 years old has nearly reached 20 percent. Full story: New York Times
AIDS Flow Chart
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- On January 12, 2001 Graves v. The President of the United States and the issue of the laboratory origin of AIDS was dismissed as "frivolous." The court's order followed Graves' submission of the 1971 Special Virus Flow Chart into evidence.
America's top doctors admitted no prior knowledge to our government's secret virus development program (Special Virus 1962-1978) which produced 60,000 liters of contagious cancer prior to the 'mysterious' onset of the global AIDS pandemic.

Electronic Mind Control Effects
The State of Unclassified and Commercial Technology Capable of Some Electronic Mind Control Effects:- "We need a program of psychosurgery and political control of our society. The purpose is physical control of the mind. Everyone who deviates from the given norm can be surgically mutilated. . . Man does not have the right to develop his own mind. This kind of liberal orientation has great appeal. We must electrically control the brain. Some day armies and generals will be controlled by electrical stimulation of the brain." (Dr. Jose Delgado -- MKULTRA experimenter who demonstrated a radio-controlled bull on CNN in 1985 -- Director of Neuropsychiatry, Yale University Medical School Congressional Record No. 26, Vol. 118, February 24, 1974).

Are ALL Theophanies the Same Color?
Your theophany will be the same color as your complexion here on earth because it is like a "film positive" (or transparency) of your glorified body which will be a flawless reproduction of your mortal body in its prime. If you were striped or spotted on earth, you'll be striped or spotted in the resurrection or translation. Likewise, if you were monotone in this life -- plain black or white -- or both -- you'll look like an old movie in your new body.
With God, fashions do not change. You'll always be in style. No matter what birthday suit you wear, you'll be the same, yesterday, and today, and forever. And you'll never feel blue! God has no respect for the color of your skin. He respects "race", and only Adam's race has a Kinsman Redeemer.
In one place the Prophet says, we will be in the same stature as we were here, and in another place he says we will be the same in height and shape. How else would we recognize the saint called to 'tap us on the shoulder' when it's time for our body change if he was white when we knew him but brown, rainbow-colored, paisley or floral-patterned in his new body (Matthew 6:27)?
Will the Glorified Body have Blood?
As a copper wire conducts electricity to power a machine or light a lamp, our blood conducts the mortal spirit which operates mind and body. When your theophany takes the place of your blood, your life will be eternal "Life" and integral with your glorified body and eternal soul. In this mortal life the blood also sanctifies or cleanses our corruptible body of impurities. Being immortal, indeed eternal, your glorified body will not be subject to corruption. Therefore it will require no blood.
"Flesh and blood will not inherit the kingdom of God". However when we receive glorified bodies like Jesus' own glorious body, we will no longer be "flesh and blood" but "flesh and bone", without blood, like Jesus since His glorification (Luke 24:39).
My Works Confirm My Commission
Jesus said, "Do you call it blasphemy when One sanctified and sent into the world by the Father says, 'I am the Son of God?' If I do not the works of My Father, believe Me not. But if I do, though you believe not Me, believe the works: that you may know, and believe, that the Father is in Me, and I in Him" (John 10:36-37).
Works is faith expressed. God interprets His Word by bringing It to pass. Jesus exclaimed, "If you believe not that I am the anointed One, believe My Works, My works confirm My commission". Moses told Pharaoh the same thing. God vindicated Brother Branham to be the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6, the seventh Angel of Revelation 10:7, by his works: revealing Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever as Jesus promised in Luke 17:28-30. When you see your commission, your place in the Word, you won't retreat one inch but stand boldly until God confirms it by bringing It to pass in your life.
Exodus 3:1-12, "Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the edge of the desert near Horeb, the mountain of God". (Horeb, Sinai or Jebel El Lawz, known locally as "the mountain of Moses", is in the land of Midian in Saudi Arabia and not, as shown on the map in our Bibles, in Egypt whence Moses had fled from Pharaoh (Exodus 2:15; Galatians 4:25). The name "Horeb" survives in the Wadi Hurab, which extends from Mount Horeb (Jebel El Lawz) to the foothills.
"And the angel of the LORD appeared to him in a flame of fire in a bush. Seeing that the bush was not consumed he went to investigate, and God called to him."
God was getting ready to fulfill His Word by the prophet Abraham, "Your seed shall sojourn four hundred years in a strange land and I will bring them out with a strong hand. I have seen their misery in Egypt and heard their pleas for liberty. I have come down to deliver them, and to bring them into a good land, a large land, a land flowing with milk and honey -- the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites. And I've prepared you for the job."
"Moses cried, "I'm not the one for such a task". God assured him, "I will certainly be with you; and this shall be a token that I have sent you. When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall worship God upon this mountain."
Exodus 19:1-6, "The children of Israel arrived in the wilderness of Sinai on the first of the third month, two months after their departure from Egypt, (the greater part of which was spent in their camps at Elim and Rephidim)". They were redeemed from Egypt and delivered not by their martial arts but through God's goodness and grace. Now, if they will obey His Voice and keep the Covenant He is about to offer for them to freely accept or decline, He will make them peculiarly precious above all people, not "out of all people", for all the Earth is His, and that would make Him merely a national God as the "Jews" suppose.
Having completed his first commission, Moses returned to Mount Sinai, and as he ascended to receive the token, the Lord called to him and the two parties came together in a Covenant Moses announced through the elders to the people who freely determined, "All the Lord has spoken we will do". Moses returned to camp and commanded them to sanctify themselves for the next two days, for on the third day, which was the day of Pentecost, he would ascend the mountain once more where God will speak to Him in Voice that will be heard and understood by all Israel (Exodus 20:21). They had to come out of the camp to meet with God as we must go without the denominational camp to meet Jesus today.
The sound of a trumpet called Moses to assemble Israel to hear the Word of the Lord as the sound of the Seventh Trumpet will soon alert two Hebrew prophets to assemble Israel in the Promised Land without the camp of Judaism to hear the Word of the Lord (Exodus 19:16, 18; Numbers 10:4; Revelation 11:15).
Israel failed to keep their conditional Pentecostal Covenant. In less than forty days they had fallen in adultery and idolatry, thus forfeiting any possibility of becoming God's "peculiar treasure" and "kingdom of priests". The spirit that causes natural infidelity causes spiritual adultery (Exodus 24:18; 32:1-25). God declared, "Whosoever has sinned against Me, him will I blot out of My Book"
(Exodus 32:33). Those who had been redeemed by grace broke God's Covenant and were condemned under the Law to wander forty years, one year for a day, until the last of them perished in the wilderness (John 6:49; Hebrews 6:4-8).
I believe the whole generation of Pentecostal saints born-again between 1906 and the opening of the Seven Seals in 1963 die before the first resurrection, because Pentecostals by denomination will perish in the Tribulation with the non-elect of that Laodicean generation. These will not enter our Promised Land of millennial rest. Only the end-time Bride with the Token will manifest the Sons of God and be translated.
The Church was enslaved under spiritual Egypt from the First Nicea Council in the fourth century, until God sent us a deliverer, the Prophet William Branham. His ministry restored the apostolic faith (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Acts 3:21), finished the mystery of God (Revelation 10:7; Acts 3:1-23, I Corinthians 13:10), and released us from theological misery, calling us out from Roman dogma and Protestant guesswork into liberty in the unity of the faith by the revelation of the Seven Seals (Revelation 18:4).
On condition of faithfulness and obedience, God promised to make Israel "a peculiar people, a kingdom of priests and a holy nation" and grant them the land of the physical Serpent's seed. He granted the Church Abraham's unconditional grace Covenant and will soon destroy the Serpent's seed, physical and spiritual, then lead us to our promised land of the Millennium.
Brother Branham, like Moses, was commissioned from the pillar of Fire. The Angel of the Lord told him, "If you will be sincere and get the people to believe, not even cancer will stand in the way of your prayers". Like Moses, God gave Brother Branham two signs, saying that if the people refused to believe those two signs or heed his preaching, the spoken Word, judgment, will be in effect. And what he speaks in the Name of the Lord will come to pass.
God showed Brother Branham a vision wherein He was caught up into a pyramid formation defined by the union of the seven portions of the Spirit that anointed the Church Age Messengers. It represented the rejected Headstone, for together they make Christ the fullness of the Word Who would return to earth in the Seventh Seal revealed through his Message. This vision signified that the fulfillment of his first two signs and the end of the Laodicean Church Age was at hand, and that his new commission, the Third Pull, was about to commence.
Early in 1963, the Lord called Brother Branham to Sabino Canyon, near Tucson. He was up above the canyon kneeling in prayer with his hands raised, when a sword materialized in his hand. A Voice said, "That's the King's Sword, the Word of the Lord. Fear not, it's only the Third Pull. It's the vindication of your ministry," the Token.
This signified the full Word in his hand. He would introduce the second Coming of the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the World, not start another PART-Word denomination -- behold My Lutheran, My Methodist, My Pentecostal. "When that which is perfect is come, that which was in part shall be done away" (I Corinthians 13:10).
On February 28, 1963, when Brother Branham was on Sunset mountain, the vision of the seven portions of the Spirit came to pass and he was caught up into their pyramid formation. As they departed the Pillar of Cloud manifested 30 miles wide and 26 miles high -- above the atmosphere where there is no moisture to form a natural cloud. To this day scientists have been unable to explain It. But he knew by the Scripture it was the sign of Christ's 'parousia' Coming and his new commission, and time for him to return to his Church and preach the Seven Seals as Christ revealed them to Him (Daniel 7:9; Matthew 24:3b; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7).
Moses' first commission had been to deliver the Children of Israel out of Egypt. His second commission was to lead them in to the Promised Land. But Moses died. (He typed church organization which failed God. Now its dead. Brother Branham said, "1977 ought to terminate the world systems and usher in the Millennium" -- by Divine inspiration in the Bride). Moses was replaced by Joshua as church organization was replaced by the Headship of the Son of Man (II Thessalonians 2:1).
Brother Branham's first commission was to hold to God's Word and get the people to believe so God would have the attention of believers. His second commission was to introduce Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming through the revelation of the Seven Seals which restored the apostolic faith, call His people out of Roman bondage, and usher in the Millennium.
Brother Branham's ministry spanned two dispensations. He was the angel to the Laodicean Church Age but when that dispensation ended He received his 'Elijah' anointing and revealed the Seven Seals, bringing Christ back to earth in Word form. His end-time Message is Christ, calling His people out of Laodicea -- as Moses' Message was God, calling His people out of Egypt. As it was in the first exodus, many came out from organizations, but few entered in to Christ. Most have been wandering around the Laodicean desert for thirty-eight years, perishing (Amos 8:11; Ephesians 1:10; II Thessalonians 2:1). When the saints from that generation have died there will be a resurrection, and God will take His children Home.
Brother Branham was also a Laodicean saint. God put him to sleep once his second commission was fulfilled, as He put John the Baptist to sleep after he had introduced Christ's first Coming. And as Joshua took Moses' place and led the Children of Israel into Canaan, the Son of Man has taken Brother Branham's place and is leading us into the Millennium (Revelation 10:1, 8-11).
God met Moses on the mountain and offered a Covenant whereby, contingent upon their obedience and fidelity, Israel would be his precious treasure. The people agreed. But before Moses could deliver the Covenant conditions, Israel had sinned. When he again ascended, God restored His Word but this time the testimony was engraved by Moses' hand. Israel was under judgment.
This was a type of what would happen in the Gentile dispensation. Malachi 4:4-6, "Remember the Law of Moses My servant, which I commanded to him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. [Moses smashed the tablets God had written because the people had already broken their Covenant; so the Word had to be restored]. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD [which commences at the close of the Gentile dispensation]: And he shall turn the heart of the [apostolic] fathers to the children [or elect Israelites and Gentiles. This was the fruit of the ministry of John the Baptist, the Elijah of Malachi 3, some three years after his death], and [restore] the heart of the children [or nominal Christians whose churches have apostatized as Jesus foretold in Revelation 3:14-22, to the faith once delivered by God direct] to their [apostolic] fathers, [this ministry of restoration was fulfilled by William Branham in our day -- Matthew 17:11; Acts 3:21-23] lest I come and smite the earth with a curse" (Acts 3:23; revelation 22:18-19).
As the prophet Moses, was made to restore the tablets of the Law that had been Supernaturally engraved by the hand of God, and the Prophet William Branham was made to restore the faith once Supernaturally delivered unto the apostolic saints. "Remember the Law of Moses which I commanded him in Horeb", and which had to be restored. Acts 3:21-23; "Every soul that does not receive that prophet whom Jesus, Malachi and Peter said would restore the Word spoken by the mouth of all God's holy prophets since the world began, shall be destroyed from among His elect." ALL the Word is the Fullness or Logos which is Christ. As Paul taught, "When that which is perfect is come [ALL the Word], PART-Word and a Mediator shall be done away" (I Corinthians 13:10). And Jesus said, "In the days of the Voice of the angel to the Seventh Church Age (William Branham), the mystery of God as He has already declared to His servants the prophets should be finished". When God fulfilled these Scriptures, Jesus Christ, came through the mouth of Brother Branham as the Fullness of the Word.
Christ's second Coming is not a Man. Jesus said do not look for a Man, seek Light on the Word! The same Light or revelation that once shone in the East in the morning of the Church, will be restored in the West in the evening time, just before the Sun becomes black as sackcloth of hair (at the close of the Gentile dispensation), and the Moon (false church) becomes as blood (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:22-28; Revelation 6:12).
The Bible tells us Christ's second Coming is a "parousia" Coming. It is not physical. The physical return of the glorified Man from Galilee is in company with the glorified saints of all Ages who step out on the ashes of the wicked for a thousand years of peace. His second physical Coming is actually His Third Coming.
Like Israel in the days of His flesh, the worldly church, is looking for the wrong Coming and rejecting what the Spirit is saying -- the unforgivable sin, which is the mark of the beast (Revelation 22:17-19). Any one who has read this far and not proven these things in his own Bible and received a clear understanding had better pray earnestly for the revelation, lest he be judged.
One year after Brother Branham had delivered the revelation of the Seven Seals, he returned to Sunset Mountain. The Spirit said, "Throw up a rock [in token of the earthquake that will sink Los Angeles, Revelation 18:20-24]. Say to your friend, 'THUS SAITH THE LORD, you will see the Glory of God'." As Moses smashed the first Tablets of the Law when Israel rejected God's Grace, God appeared in a whirlwind which blasted the rocks around the canyon, and cut the tops off the trees, signifying the whole world is indicted and the full Word, Judgment is in effect. Jesus said John the Baptist laid the ax to the root of the trees (Matthew 3:10). Trees represent man and his religious beliefs whose roots go back to the garden of Eden and whose limbs became entwined when men added to and took from the Tree of Life which is the Word of God. Here God cut off the tops of the trees, or religious leaders beholden to man-made organizations and not able to follow the Spirit. Jesus said the Message of His Prophet will call "My people, both wise and foolish virgins, out of Rome and her (once) Protestant daughters" (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4).
The whirlwind blasted pyramid-shaped rocks out of the mountain (signifying a kingdom) in token of prophecy wherein a church kingdom will soon rule one world government (Zechariah 4:7; Daniel 2:40-45).
When the Whirlwind had departed, his companions asked Brother Branham, "What was It"?
He replied, "Judgment is striking the West Coast". And two days later a record earthquake struck Fairbanks, Alaska. Soon it will sink Los Angeles because God's works confirm His commission. nl174
