Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ
"In the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be . . . trucebreakers, false accusers, intemperate, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, rash and reckless".
Pictured here is the swearing-in ceremony of Ashcroft, Rumsfeld and Powell, Bush's right, err, left hand men, taking an oath to uphold the Constitution. A Left-handed Oath is one that is not intended to be binding (Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, 1898).
Could it be that Bush's boys just don't know the difference between the right and the left hand? Or are they invoking Kol Nidre? These are the men with power to order US troops—your sons—and indeed the whole world into battle. Their leader, George W. Bush, has just created an uproar within Congress by accusing any who drag their feet in giving him the power to go to war with Iraq, as somehow not caring about the security of the united States of America.
As Brother Branham expounded Revelation 13:11-14, "John saw another beast (the American buffalo) coming up out of the earth: and he had two horns like a lamb (signifying church and state powers), and he spoke with a fearsome voice like the Dragon (Rome) whose deadly wound was healed (when the church and state united and Imperial Rome became papal Rome). And he exercised all the power of the first beast whom he obliged all the world to worship (— forcing the mark of the beast which is Trinitarianism). He did great wonders, so that he made fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men (the atomic bomb), and deceived the whole world by means of those miracles which he was empowered to do under the authority of Rome, saying to them that they should make an image to the beast (or a union of once Protestant churches)".
This prophecy describes the world's imminent future as we see America delivering edicts and ultimatums like the fearsome Roman Dragon, dividing and conquering the nations and mingling Adam's race with the seed of men (Daniel 2:43; Matthew 24:37). The US is run by terrorists eha.darktech.org.

Shadows that Haunt the Queen
"There are powers at work in this country about which we have no knowledge".
Are those the words of a conspiracy theorist? Someone who sees plots in every shadow? No, they are not. They were spoken by the Queen . . . Who or what did she mean by "powers at work in this country"? Full story: mirror.co.uk
The Life of an American Jew in Racist, Marxist Israel
Zionist propaganda has led the American people to believe that Zionism and Judaism are one and the same and that they are religious in nature. This is a blatant lie.
Judaism is a religion; but Zionism is a political movement started mainly by East European (Ashkenazi) Jews who for centuries have been the force behind communism/socialism. The ultimate goal of the Zionists is one one-world government under the control of the Zionists and the Zionist-oriented Jewish international bankers. Communism/socialism are merely tools to help them accomplish their goal. . .
For an Ashkenazi Jew to marry a Sephardic Jew is frowned upon in Israel by the ruling Ashkenazi's. To understand why this is the case, you must realize the difference between the Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jews.
The powerful Zionist propaganda machine has led the American people to believe that a Jew is a race of people and that they are "God's Chosen People". I will deal with the "God's Chosen People" lie later. First, it is important for you to understand that Jews are not one race of people.
There are two distinct groups of Jews in the world and they come from two different areas of the world; the Sephardic Jews come from the Middle East and North Africa and the Ashkenazi Jews come from Eastern Europe. The Sephardic is the oldest group (although mainly Bedouin, Canaanites) and it is they, if any, who are the Jews described in the Bible because they lived in the area described in the Bible. They are blood relatives to the Arabs the only difference between them is the religion.
The Ashkenazi Jews now compromise 90% of the Jews in the world . . . Because these Khazar Ashkenazi Jews merely chose Judaism, they are not really Jews, at least not blood Jews. . . [their] aim is world domination.
So when you think of Jews, especially as related to Israel, keep in mind that there is a great difference between Sephardim and Ashkenazim. They are not one united people. They are divided socially, politically and especially racially. . . Full story: The Life of an American Jew in Racist, Marxist Israel by Jack Bernstein
Jesuits Pay $7.5m to Two Men Abused for 30 Years
Jesuits have agreed to pay US$7.5m to two men who say they were sexually molested for 30 years at the Californian retirement home for priests where they worked . . . So far five Jesuits from Sacred Heart have registered as sex offenders.
When Ignatius Loyola first started the Jesuit Order he went to Jerusalem to set up their headquarters, he failed. Loyola was a Jew, working for the Pope. And the man expected to be the next Pope, is also Jewish. Full story: Free American, p. 38 November, 2002
The Papal Presidency
Washington November 14, 2002 Talion.com has been exploring the background of ES&S, which is reputed to be the largest election-management company in the world. . . sf.indymedia.org is also running a relevant article, and giving links re ES&S.
It is stated that one of the owners of ES&S (there appear to be a number of owners) is Charter Oaks Partners. Charter Oaks is cited as an affiliate of Rothschild Realty, Inc. And this latter outfit is cited as an affiliate of Rothschild, Inc. . . [who] bear the title 'guardian of the Vatican Treasury'. . .
According to John Swomley's blockbuster article in The Humanist (May/June 1998), "A massive political campaign is underway in an effort to achieve religious and political control of crucial American policies and institutions. . . It was inspired by the Vatican and has been carried out over a period of years under the supervision of the National Council of Bishops" Full story: rense.com
Jewish Law Institute Launched in DC
Jerusalem November 9, 2002 Jewish legal experts have created a new institute that will educate jurists and others about 2,000 years of Jewish law and promote application of the teachings to contemporary legal disputes and other modern-day issues.
US President George W. Bush sent greetings and applauded the institute for promoting an "understanding of Judaism's rich tradition of legal thought".
Comment: "Judaism's rich tradition of legal thought" negates the Law of Moses and the prophets. The Institute is being 'established' by infamous Zionist lawyer, Nathan Lewin, who earlier this year advocated "total eradication" of the wives, mothers and children of accused Palestinian suicide bombers.

A Body have You Prepared Me
John 14:2-3, "In My Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there you may be also".
I Corinthians 6:17, 19, "God and the soul that is joined together with the Lord is one Spirit . . . don't you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost who is in you, whom you have of God, and that you are not your own?"
The Bible is the story of God changing His form or unfolding Himself from the Holy Spirit alone with His thoughts to their expression in the flesh of His glorified family. Jesus is no second or third Person but the One Person of God made manifest in virgin-born flesh—not the beginning of God's creation which is the sun and the stars, rivers and trees, but "the beginning of the creation of God" less than 2,000 years ago. The true New Testament Church is a continuation of the same creation for we were in the Logos from eternity when it was expressed just as Eve and every man and woman of the first Adam's race was in him when he was created (Genesis 1:26-28; 5:1-2).
From Hebrews 5:7-9 we learn that "in the days of His flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications with loud crying and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His strong desire to obey God at all times. Although He was a Son, He learned obedience by what He suffered; and being made perfect [by enduring the Cross, He was resurrected and glorified and] became the Beginner or Author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him" (Genesis 3:14).
Jesus is our type but Christ's end-time Bride is not called to wrestle against sin unto martyrdom because as His wife we paid for our sins in Christ on Calvary, and "when He was raised for our justification we were raised in Him, and are without condemnation" (Romans 4:25; 8:1-4; II Corinthians 5:21). The foolish virgin who worship with us will resist to the shedding of their blood in order to maintain their names on the Book of Life and salvation. Obedience is better than sacrifice, therefore "the Lord disciplines those He loves, and chastens every son [and daughter] whom He receives. You must endure for the sake of correction. God is treating you as sons; for what son [or daughter] is there whom their father does not discipline? But if you receive no correction, such as all sons [and daughters] share, then you are bastards, and not sons [or daughters of God]" (Hebrews 12:4-9).
"The beginning of the creation of God" was made perfect or complete when He was glorified—the wounds on His brow, His back, His hands and feet, and His side will be evident throughout eternity. God prepared the virgin-born Body of our near KINSMAN, the sinless Lord Jesus Christ to lay upon his altar as the propitiation for His Bride. We will be made complete when all of our members are resurrected from the dead or changed in the atoms into glorified flesh without spot or blemish, never to age, eternally free from illness and injury.
If we truly are the Attributes of God's eternal thoughts, we will recognize our position in the Word, manifest "the present Truth" (II Peter 1:12) and be obedient. We cannot be the Word unless we bear the Life of the Word.
Men have their ideas and try to persuade God to accept their human conceptions as seen in the building of King Solomon's temple. "However God does not live in temples made with human hands" but has prepared a Body in Whom His elect are carefully joined together as parts of a beautiful, constantly growing and holy temple where God dwells and over which Jesus Christ is Lord (Acts 7:48-49; Hebrews 10:5; Ephesians 2:6, 21-22). This is the general assembly and Church of the firstborn who are written in heaven where the Overcomer is, even now, and will one day come down from God out of heaven, prepared as a Bride, adorned for her Husband.
Jesus is God's dwelling place, God's house or kingdom. And the elect of God, being baptised into Christ, become dwelling places of God. Jesus has gone to prepare a place for us. As Son of God He interceded for the PART-Word saints from Pentecost to Laodicea on account of their ignorance of the Word so that they could take their positions in the Body. Now, as Son of man, He is incarnating His end-time Bride to complete the Body, and manifest the Sons of God prior to the translation.
Jesus said, "As you have believed in God, you should believe in Me because I am the Son of God and I and My Father are One. My Father is dwelling in Me, the works that you see Me do and the Words you hear Me speak are not of Myself but of the Father that dwells in Me" (John 14:9-12). God was in Christ reconciling the World to Himself through faith in the spoken Word.
Israelites in His day, like Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and denominational people today, believed that "somewhere up There" was a great Supernatural God, and they try to serve Him by the traditions of their elders, not realizing that their religious wisdom is foolishness to and separates them from God. God cannot live in our works except they be by faith.
Last Sunday I was invited to join with some sincere denominational folk in "prayers for the persecuted Church." I declined their invitation because I believe we must we must know God's Will when we pray, asking "Thy will be done," otherwise our prayers are in vain. Not one of those well-intentioned people was a born-again Christian with the mind of Christ in them and it was unlikely that they would be open to instruction. They knew neither how to pray, nor for whom they are praying because, being imperfectly instructed they cannot recognize and have ignorantly rejected the true Church, which is those mansions in God's House (Revelation 3:17-20). Their very own churches are the persecutors of Christ's little Flock. And during the tribulation when church and state have reunited under Rome they will martyr the righteous foolish virgin and other groups of "the saved" along with the 144,000 elect Israelites.
It was beyond the comprehension of the non-elect religious majority of Christ's day that God could tabernacle in the flesh of His Son as their Scriptures foretold. Jesus told the elect believers in Him, "He that believes in Me shall do the same Supernatural works you have seen Me do, and more than these, because I go to the Father" [and there will be many more anointed ones to work the works of God]. (John 14:12).
It is beyond the comprehension of the non-elect denominational majority in this day that God is even now tabernacling in His many-membered (though numerically minuscule) Capstone Bride, and doing the greater works. And inconceivable to them that every one of these, without exception, has come out from denominational membership and beliefs according to the Scripture (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4).
Little do they realize that the saints are already judging the world for they are the Word for this day made manifest (Matthew 25:35-40; John 3:18; Revelation 10:8-11).
Because of the Fall we were conceived in sin and brought forth in iniquity to a pest house of corruptible flesh with a mortal spirit and unquickened soul—all subject to the nature of a world under the dominion of Satan. Our first birth only made us alive to a physical realm we can see, feel, taste, smell, and hear, or rationalize by reasoning, imagination, memory, affection, and conscience. So the unregenerate man discerns by his own flesh and blood experiences, instead of by faith in God's unchanging Word. With our soul we can contact the unseen realm of spirit which determines our destiny according to our faith or unbelief in God's unchanging Word. Here we may freely choose God's Word, or Satan's world.
This pest house in which we now live is going to be changed into a new body. And this pest house on which we reside will one day be remade into a new heavens and new earth.
When Jesus declared, "I go away to prepare a place for you, that where I am, there you may be also," He confirmed that there is Life after death. In that place there will be no more unhappiness and tears, and no old age or sickness. Jesus was calling God's elect to that perfection, but you have to be perfect to get there.
He said, "Be ye therefore perfect, as your Father in heaven is perfect" (Matthew 5:48). By "perfect" He meant complete, finished and lacking nothing as in the mature adulthood of consummate human integrity and virtue. Or as Paul foretold, in the full stature of the perfect man with the Token on display, not tossed and carried about with every wind of doctrine, but ready to perform the "greater works" in the manifestation of the Sons of God.
If Jesus' requirement is for perfection in the saints, then He has made a way whereby we can reach that place. That way is the second birth, which in this end-time is the invisible marriage union with "that which is perfect"—the fullness of the Word that was unveiled in the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10:1-4.
This house in which we live was born by sex. The glorified mansion Jesus has gone away to prepare for each of His elect is born by faith in the spoken Word of God for their day. Our first birth began with the conception of our physical body which according to God's law of reproduction, received a mortal spirit and immortal soul the instant it was delivered and drew breath (Genesis 1:11).
According to this law, even the physical Serpent's seed receives a soul identical in every respect to your soul and mine. However, as it is a hybrid, the physical Serpent's seed was never God's creative thought expressed as a Word thus it is not Life, but Death (John 6:63). Also, since it is not in the genealogy of Adam, which is the Book of Life, it is without redemption because the last Adam, Jesus Christ, is the Kinsman Redeemer only for the first Adam and his descendants. He is not the last Cain with whom He has no kinship.
Our second birth began with the conception of our spiritual being by the quickening of our soul. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. And our soul lives by faith, not see, feel, taste, smell, or hearing, neither by conscience, imagination, reasoning, memory, and affection. We are our soul, we live not by physical bread but by Spiritual communion with the invisible God being made visible in His saints.
Faith is a clear understanding of the Word of God revealed not by flesh and blood, but by the Father Above. Unless we have heard Jesus' Voice for our day, and followed what It said do, we are not His sheep. In the natural we live in the Communications Age where technology has made it possible to speak in real time to people on the other side of the world, under the sea and even in inner space. And since the mystery of God was finished when Jesus opened and revealed the Seals, God has been communicating His secrets to all those who can receive them: His Bride.
One who has never heard or understood the revealed Word of God is without faith. Oh, he may love the Lord Jesus with all of his heart like the rich young ruler who obeyed the "letter" of the Word from childhood. But without faith, that is just good works and works without faith is as dead as faith without works. The evidence of a relationship with God is communication from God. "My sheep hear My Voice." If God is not revealing His Word to us He is not talking to us; our relationship is a one-sided love affair, and we are numbered among those who "received not the Love of the Truth." In other words, we loved Him in our way, but did not receive His love because we were without faith.
As Paul explained, "there are celestial bodies, and there are earthly bodies." When our natural, earthly body is born there is a soul waiting to receive it. Likewise, when our soul is quickened, there is a celestial body, or angel, our theophany, waiting to receive it. The natural types the spiritual. "And as we have borne the image of this corruptible earthy body, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly body or theophany" which is in the likeness of our glorified body (I Corinthians 15:40-49).
We are elect according to God's foreknowledge of our receiving the love of the Truth and becoming written epistles of the Word for our day (I Peter 1:2). From the foundation of the world He saw the true Church crucified in Christ on Calvary, so His elect have always been seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Through the revelation of the Seven Seals in these last days God is making known the limitless riches of His grace and His kindness toward the saints in all ages through Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:6-7).
As eternity has neither beginning nor end if God's elect could receive eternal Life at some point in time language would lose its meaning. We always were eternal Life because we were foreknown as receiving His Word. When we caught the revelation, we recognized our name being called from the Lamb's Book of Life and began to be conscious that we are the Sons of God. That we always were the Sons of God and are eternal with God.
Romans 8:29-30, "All God foreknew He predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son, that Jesus might be the firstborn among many brothers": the beginning of God creating Himself a part of His new creation of God-men (Hebrews 2:10-13; Revelation 3:14). "Moreover whom He predestinated, He also called, justified, and has glorified".
God sees His elect already finished, each made perfect in their own personal glorified mansion. And because His thoughts are eternal and they are real they must come to pass in their designated, decreed season and time. We are presently down here, in the process of overcoming sin and the world by the Word of God and prayer—written epistles of the present Truth, read and known of all men. Those who honour God's Word manifested in us will be blessed and numbered among the "saved" we will grant into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment. Others will be condemned by their association with us because they did not recognize and despised God's manifested Word.
Denominational people have no idea of "the present Truth" and most of them could care less! The best of them are trying to become written epistles of the "letter without the Spirit" because they are without a sufficient measure of the Spirit to take them from sanctification to a new birth. Theirs is a Boy Scout religion of good works without faith.
If you can see yourself in Christ from the foundation of the world, forever glorified and seated in heavenly places, that's the tie post to the soul (Revelation 13:8). A denominational person would not dare to believe that; Bible school psychology cannot see that far.
Revelation 5:8, 11-12, "When Jesus had taken the Book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders prostrated themselves before the Lamb, each with a harp and golden vials filled with incense which are the prayers of the saints . . . Then in my vision I heard the voice of a multitude of angels surrounding the throne and the living creatures and the elders loudly singing, 'Worthy is the Lamb that was slain. He is worthy to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing'."
These "angels surrounding the throne" are the theophanies of Christ's Bride of all Ages waiting the first resurrection. This is real. If you are only a denominational person whose unregenerate soul is still slumbering in the congregation of the unrighteous, or perhaps a foolish virgin who has heard the midnight cry of God's Prophet and come out from Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches into the circle of this Message but not united with It in a new birth, then you may not be one of these angels. "Give diligence to make your calling and election sure" for outside the Body of Christ will be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth in the tribulation while the Bride is at the Wedding Supper (II Peter 1:10).
When the PART-Word Bride died through the ages, their physical bodies returned to the dust but their soul took on a theophany body for fellowship with their brethren, pending the first resurrection. Christ's end-time Bride—those born-again since the close of the Laodicean Church Age by the revelation of the Seven Seals—will not see death in the flesh but will change in the atoms to a glorified body.
The order of the first resurrection is explained in Mark 10:31; Matthew 17:1-3; I Thessalonians 4:16 and I Corinthians 15:50-54. The last will be first, and he that was first will be last. The vision showed Moses who ministered first and represented the Church Age saints who will be resurrected. Elijah was the messenger of the last day, and his group will be translated without death. "We who are alive and remain shall not prevent the sleeping Church Age saints from resurrecting; for the Trumpet of God will sound, and the dead in Christ shall rise first; then we who are alive and remain will change in the atoms and be caught up together to meet them before we meet the Lord in the air all together as one Body." When we meet one another, the Laodicean saints will know their contemporaries, and their contemporaries will know the generation before them, which will know the generation before them.
God had to become kin to Adam in order to redeem and raise up his elect children. He had to be born of a woman but created by the spoken Word apart from human male instrumentality just like the first Adam, not made by passion. Eve did not wait for God's spoken Word to reveal the means and parameters within which the procreation of the human race should take place. She received Satan's intellectual learning which led to adultery and miscegenation. So when Adam took her unto himself he forfeited his dominion and our dominion over this earth to Satan.
"We who are alive and remain shall not prevent those who are dead . . . for the trumpet of God shall sound, and the dead in Christ shall rise first; then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them . . ." We will meet one another before we meet Him and "be caught up together with them to meet the Lord in the air" as one complete Body.
We meet one another first, before we are presented to the Lord so we will be at peace, rejoicing and free to worship Him at that time, not preoccupied in searching among the redeemed to see whether particular friends and acquaintances have "made it" by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The resurrection of the sleeping saints will take place over about six weeks, while the end-time Bride manifest that they are the Sons of God; then they will be changed in the twinkling of an eye. But first we shall become a hunted and persecuted little group. FEMA camps succeeded the Federal Civil Defense Administration established by President Harry S. Truman in 1950 pursuant to executive order #10186 (read "Book Review: Atomic Bomb Secrets above). Following the Boy Scout motto "Be prepared" Christian President Jimmy Carter established FEMA in 1979 under executive order #12127 to coordinate the response to a major disaster should it occur, overwhelming local and state authorities. Under President George W. Bush it was codified into law and made a component of the Department of Homeland Security in 2002. As well as providing large-scale emergency-management, FEMA is the largest flood-insurer in the United States as most private insurance companies don't offer flood-insurance. These camps will certainly be deployed following the earthquake that sinks Los Angeles and other parts at the Seventh Trump, "waves will shoot plumb out to the state of Kentucky" and throughout the seven seas (A Thinking Man's Filter, p. 25:145).
This vindication of the Message of God's prophet, expressed as warnings to the families and loved ones of Message believers will be seen as sedition by authorities, and like lepers we will be rejected by society, bereft of material support and betrayed even by those closest to us. We are warned by the example of persecutions which befell the primitive Church at the hands of denominations and federal authorities after the birth of the Church on the Day of Pentecost.
These trials will draw us to a total dependence upon God's faithfulness such that the Spoken Word will manifest from His mind through our lips. Ours will be wholly a Spiritual warfare against the powers of darkness working through the children of disobedience and those without the integrity of a courageous character. Desperation will drive us to speak the Word in expectation, and God will do what we say to provide our needs during the manifestation of the Sons of God—not a public show of the Supernatural Pentecost experienced under Brother Branham's ministry, but the means of raising our faith to such perfection as will enable the living Bride to change in the atoms.
We await the full adoption which is the redemption of our bodies in a glorified form that holds no evil and is immune from sickness, age, and death. The PART-Word saints who entered the Presence through Christ's Mediation are waiting upon us to reach our full number and come to maturity, for without us they cannot be made perfect, or resurrected in their glorified bodies, neither can Christ's Body be complete.
Anything that is of God can be accomplished only in one particular way. Therefore God has one particular Church in which He meets His people. He will receive you in that one Church and no other. He never even considers the denominations because they are all against Him with the best of intent but without faith, having taken the leadership of man.
God is not obligated to meet anyone on the basis of their theology. Yet people behave as if it were so and won't even associate with one another. Only this week an Anglican told me he would not feel comfortable praying with me. I departed wishing him God's blessings. The Bride of Christ does not stay where the Spirit of God is unwelcome. God is obligated to His Word alone. He knows precisely what It means for It is His own thoughts expressed in a form whereby we can receive His Spirit by faith.
We Christians are to have the mind of Christ in us, "the present Truth," not His thoughts for the days of Noah, Moses, Martin Luther, John Wesley or the Pentecostals. We must receive and become written epistles of His will for the hour in which we are living. If we don't recognize our day and its Message we have no communication with God in Christ, and cannot share true fellowship with those who are under the Blood, as demonstrated by that Anglican and tens of millions like him (I John 1:7).
God does not dwell in temples made with human hands, nor are His headquarters in Rome, Jerusalem, Canterbury or Missouri. God lives in a many-membered Body under pre-eminence to His Word.
