In an interview on ABC Radio National's "Religion Report," Professor John May of the Irish School of Ecumenics at Trinity College, Dublin, touched on an anthropological theme suggesting that religion is at the core of all culturesan idea captured by the original meaning of the word "religion" which means binding together. And binding "us" together also implies binding us apart from "them".
Gil Bailie, an American Catholic anthropologist and founding member of the Colloquium on Violence and Religion, thinks "our Judeo-Christian tradition offers us a way out of violence" and he went on to develop those ideas:
"Now frankly, old-fashioned paganism is benign compared to neo-paganism. The idea that one can go back after being Christianizsed . . . and reconstitute a pagan culture is madness of the first order . . . for one thing, when we see all this violence, what you have to account for is the binding power of violence. We know the word religare means "to bind"; religion is a binding power, the archaic religion is a binding power. What makes it binding is violence. We know violence to this day has a gravitational feel, it draws people in and it binds them into communities. So it creates communities over against other communities, or over against their internal scapegoats. Now, what is the key to that binding power? The key to that binding power is the whole community believing that those against whom they have organized themselves, are in fact really the culprits, the terrible people, the evil ones, etc. etc. As long as everybody can believe that, it creates a huge binding power. It blinds people to what they're really doing. There's a marvelous thing in the biblical text, in the Old Testament and New Testament: "eyes that cannot see and ears that cannot hear." That's something that happens when people fall into this vortex of violence, and they go mad, and they can't recognize what they're doing."
"Europe, in the first instance, created itself through the Crusades. Now, we're very happy Europe survived. Everybody's against the Crusades, but the truth is, had there not been some kind of confrontation, we would have all been Muslims today. So it's not an easy question; for those of us who like being Christian, it's not easy. Nevertheless, what you have to see in history is that Europe became more or less a social unit in a very loose sense, because it gathered itself up against the other. Now, contemporary Europe is a cluster of nation-states, the nation-state is dyingthanks, by the way, to Christianity in some waysthe nation-states are dissolving as insignificant, politics is becoming a sideshow, the world is being gathered up into the market economy, and these nation-states are now trying to form another mega-state called Europe. How do you form a mega-state out of diverse little units? The ideal way is to organize against another. And I saw, in some little tiny way, now in my estimation President Bush in some ways has earned the privilege of being the one they can all despise, but I found an interesting anthropological process at work there, which may have had very little to do with the war at some level. It's a gathering together."
Ignoring this mistaken view of church and secular history, and the inability of academia to distinguish faith from religion which is its antithesis, these men have unconsciously identified what is now taking place two years into World War III. From behind the mask of apostate nominal Christianity the 'hidden hand' is working the "binding" power of Islam and political Zionism to divide and conquer the world and establish the initial stage of his totalitarian one world government behind the mask of the Judeo-Roman Catholic church, then abolishing all religions, communism and nihilism, and "reconstituting a pagan culture" with the pure Luciferian worship.
These academics "know violence to this day has a gravitational feel, it draws people in and binds them into communities. So it creates communities over against other communities." They fail to recognize the Hegelian dialectic in this present, long-planned "war against terror," and how the 'hidden hand' manipulates both sides into controlled conflict to produce their predetermined history or outcomeworld hegemony.
If only academics could see that Rome was behind the Crusades and Islam, and that the "Jews" are behind Rome, they would understand a great many truths that could never be broadcast over their ABC.
The Holy Spirit is allowing ecumenism, humanism and communism to "bind the tares for burning before He gathers the wheat into His garner." Satan is uniting religious systems against the Word, while Christ is gathering His little Flock into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. After an earthquake sinks Los Angeles, splits the Mount of Olives, and destroys the Mosque of Omar, Satan's mighty churches will persecute the foolish virgin. In the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, and three and a half years after our translation, they will martyr the 144,000 elect Israelites, foolish virgin and other classes of the "saved".
This is lamp trimming time. Everything presented in this Newsletter should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
Media Terrorists explode Bomb in Australia
August 29, 2003 On Monday August 25, the Australian ABC ran part of a documentary called Security Risk 101, which claimed to show "amateur" media terrorists manufacturing and detonating a powerful bomb, allegedly constructed solely from materials purchased over-the-counter from hardware stores . . .
The entire program was comprised of a series of illusions about bombs and terrorists, designed among other things to convince the public that ammonium nitrate fertilizer is an explosive, which it is not . . . designed to make you believe that earlier bombs in Bali and Jakarta really were the work of unskilled religious fanatics, rather than devastating professional decoy weapons positioned and detonated by the CIA and Mossad. It was also designed to blind you in advance to future atrocities carried out by the latter agencies, in their insane quest to drive Judaeo-Christian hatred against Muslims of all nations. In this manner, you will hopefully be forced to support the failing homegrown "War on Terror".
. . . essentially it is you the Western public who are being terrorized by your own politicians, and if they feel obliged to increase your level of personal terror by bombing more western civilians in Milwaukee, Manchester or Melbourne, rest assured they will do so without batting an eyelid.

Homeland Security Weathernet Network
Panic is related to sudden terror: terrorism gives the Department of Homeland Security a reason to exist. . . This division works with weather and its effects on homeland security. The strange twist is that the logo for this division consists of two Nazi swastikas turned so as to form bent spokes of a wheel with a pentagram in the middle. Completely encircling the swastikas are the words forming the name of the department . . . The points of the pentagram indicate earth, wind, fire, water, and spirit. This is pure witchcraft working within a department whose purpose and chief objective is ultimate totalitarian control.

It is Time to cast a Worried Eye towards Yellowstone
Simply put, anyone living within 600 miles of Yellowstone could be sitting in a modern day Pompeii. In addition, for those living outside this area and West of the Mississippi river, there could be grievous consequences as well because systemic processes are now building beneath Yellowstone, that paint a very clear picture of a major eruption event in its early stages.

Jews remove Ten Commandments
The Ten Commandments monument at Chief Justice Roy Moore's Alabama State Judicial Building was dismantled and shuttled off to obscurity on August 27, the day the planet Mars, which bears the name of the mythical god of war, was ascendant in America's skies and "closer to earth than it has been in 60,000 years." . . . The fact that my neighbors could not abandon their television sets long enough to watch a once-in-60,000-years spectacle in the heavens, testifies to an undeniable mental enslavement emanating from pandemic addiction to the legal drug that is television.
. . . millions watched in horror as a Chosenite named Cohen, representing the "Southern Poverty Law Center," obnoxiously demanded the banishment of the Ten Commandments monument, a symbol of Christian culture, heritage and Anglo-Saxon (not Talmudic-Israeli) law, proving that today's Orthodox Judaism is neither the faithful embodiment of the Old Testament nor the root of Christianity.
Jewish Homosexual Leaders destroying Morality
August 29, 2003 The "Jew's" Anti-Defamation League (ADL) banner promotes the acceptance of homosexuality in society. The ADL has been at the forefront of homosexual "rights." By saying, "No place for hate," we are emotionally inclined by the ADL's subtle propaganda to think that since we're against "hate" we must support the acceptance of homosexuality. No pseudo-logic could be more false. It is better argued that there is no place for sodomy in society. If anything, it is the ADL and its homosexual alliance that "hates" morality.
Comment: What the ADL is encouraging is abomination to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel:
Jesus prophesied a global pandemic of sodomy in the days of His 'parousia' Coming, to be punished "as it was in the days of Lot," in the destruction of all life by fire (Luke 17:28-30; Malachi 4:1-3; II Peter 3:1-12). You can predict tomorrow's weather. But can you recognize the more obvious signs of the time today?
This is what the Talmud teaches on homosexuality:
Sodomy, despite the thunderings of the Bible, is permitted with dead bodies (Sanhedrin 78a), little boys, baby girls, with a neighbor's wife (Sanhedrin 58b), one's own wifeand in general (Sanhedrin 54b).
This is what Moses taught on homosexuality:
Deuteronomy 23:17-18, "There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, or a sodomite of the sons of Israel. You shall not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of the Lord your God for any vow: for both these are abomination unto the Lord your God". Also see Leviticus 18:22-30.
The Babylonian Talmud is the source and master of all the sins of our "Jew"-controlled (once) Christian societyusury, pederasty, sodomy, adultery, fornication, deceit and blasphemy are condoned by this filthy book Jesus said, "makes the Word of God of no effect." For "in Babylon was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth" (Revelation 18:24).
Moses said, "Do not defile yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: and the land is defiled: therefore I visited the iniquity upon it, and the land itself vomited out her inhabitants . . . For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people" (Leviticus 18:24-25, 29). Watch earthquakes in California and Florida "vomit out" their inhabitants, soon. Full story: gentileworld.com oneinstitute.org theawarenesscenter.org
Call to move UN from New York
Welcome to the website of the "Move United Nations Headquarters to Geneva" campaign. Due to the United States' violations of its obligations under the United Nations Charter in breaching the peace and rejecting world opinion by illegally attacking Iraq in March, 2003, we believe the United Nations should relocate its headquarters to Geneva until such time as the United States again expresses a willingness to abide by its obligations under the United Nations Charter.

Comment: David Ben Gurion who knew the plans of the World Revolutionary Movement wrote in Look Magazine, January 16, 1962, "With the exception of the USSR as a federal Eurasian State, all other continents will become united in a world alliance, at whose disposal will be an international police force. All armies will be abolished and there will be no more wars. In Jerusalem, the United Nations (a truly United Nations) will build a shrine of the prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; this will be the seat of the supreme court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents, as prophesied by Isaiah".
First Deir Yassin Memorial in the US
Deir Yassin Remembered, a not-for-profit organization of Jews and non-Jews working to build a memorial to the Palestinian Arab victims of the April 9, 1948 massacre at Deir Yassin, will unveil its first memorial in the United States on September 24 on the western shore of Seneca Lake in Geneva, New York.
The bronze sculpture will depict a mature olive tree, a symbol of peace, uprooted in the Zionist quest to build a Jewish state upon land owned and long-inhabited by Muslim and Christian Palestinians. The tree's tortured, angular lines illustrate the many decades of Palestinian dispossession and dehumanization that began before 1948 and continues today.

What 'Support Our Troops' Really Means
On March 30, an AP photo featured an American pro-war activist holding a sign: "Nuke the evil scum, it worked in 1945!" That's exactly what George Bush has done. America's mega-billion dollar war in Iraq has been indeed a nuclear war . . . DU munitions are classified by a United Nations resolution as illegal weapons of mass destruction . . .
Ironically, support for our troops will extend well beyond the war in Iraq. Americans will be supporting Gulf War II veterans for years as they slowly and painfully succumb to radiation poisoning. US and British troops deployed to the area are the walking dead . . . Full story: sierratimes.com fair.org
The Ten Virgins
John 3:5-8, "Jesus answered Nicodemus: In all earnestness I tell you this: unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. Human beings can only reproduce human life, but the Spirit imparts eternal Life; so don't be surprised at My statement that you must be born again! Just as you can hear the wind but cannot tell whence it comes or whither it will go next, so is it with the Spirit".
The rustling wind of the new spoken Word Life which stirs Nicodemus is unknown to him. He has marked many things in the Old Testament but not the rising motion of the Spirit. Still less does he realize how this mighty Spirit-current will lead out over Israel into the Gentile world afar off.
Regeneration both in its origin and goal is a mystery known only by faith, but its manifestation, especially under the preaching of the present Truth confirmed by signs and wonders, is a mighty, unmistakable new Life known and read by all. One cannot "join" the Family of God possessing only his sex-born natural life, one must be born the second time from Above. Without that new birth he will never see the Kingdom of God for it is made up of the spoken Word of God which is known only by faith.
"Nicodemus came to Jesus by night, and said, Rabbi, we know you are a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles You do, except God is with him" (John 3:2). It was obvious to Nicodemus' intelligence this Jesus was a man sent from God, yet he could not catch the revelation of His Message. His natural birth had made him wise, but that sort of wisdom was as contrary to God's plan as his first birth by which he could not receive faith. Hundreds of millions of Nicodemus' have acknowledged Brother Branham was a man approved of God among us by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in these last days, yet few have been able to catch the revelation of the Message God delivered through him.
We enter God's Kingdom through a clear understanding of the revealed Word for our day manifesting what it said through a new Life in us. Not by knowledge we have learned, as good as that might be, but through faith or understanding consistent with Scripture from Genesis to Revelation.
Daniel 12:4 prophesied that "at the time of the end" after Christ has opened the Seven Seals on the Bible and revealed the mystery of God, unlimited travel will be commonplace and knowledge shall be increased. Paul and Jesus foretold that at this time the Gentile churches will have rejected the Word, joining Israel in apostasy "and know it not" (II Thessalonians 2:1-11; Revelation 3:17-20).
For most of his six thousand-year earthly pilgrimage man has travelled by foot or on the back of an animal, many still do so. But in the last two hundred years the increase of knowledgetechnologyhas enabled him to journey to inner space. This week Israeli military in their US-made helicopter assassinated a Palestinian man by firing rockets at the donkey cart he was driving. As knowledge and travel have increased, spirituality and morality have declined. The once Christian United States leads the world in technology, but without faith has sunk to the pits with apostate Israel, enshrining her sub-sewer Talmudic law, which Jesus said makes void the Word of God, into legislation.
Peter indicted Israel on the day of Pentecost: "You men of Israel [not Rome], hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by Him in the midst of you, as you yourselves also know: Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, you have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain" (Acts 2:22-23).
In 1963, Brother Branham indicted this generation for the second crucifixion of Jesus Christ and their ministers as prostitutes of the Gospel, saying that because America did not repent in 1956, the Word of God is of no effect to her.
In Matthew 24:15-21, Jesus advised His followers to watch for a certain sign by which they should be warned of the impending destruction of Jerusalem and its temple, and to depart immediately. Through the ministry of Brother Branham, Jesus Christ revealed Himself the same yesterday, today, and forever: discerning the thoughts and intents of people's hearts "as it was in the days of Lot," a sign for us to escape the great city of Babylon (Genesis 18; Luke 17:28-30; Hebrews 4:12; Revelation 18:4). Homosexuality, which is abomination to God, is rife. This week the United Nations gave Australia 90 days to respond to their decision and legislate to grant equality rights to same-sex couples. Can you recognize the signs of the time? "This decision will have effects all around the world," said legal academic Wayne Morgan, who was a consultant on the case.
God sent Brother Branham to give us warning and a way of escape. Jesus advised His followers in these last days to watch for the sign of a Supernatural Cloud that would precede His 'parousia' Coming. This Cloud appeared publicly on February 28, 1963. Jesus said the 1948 restoration of apostate Israel to statehood would signify the approaching end of all dispensations, and that the Millennium would commence before that generation could expire through old age. In Matthew 24:36-51, Jesus gave us a further series of signs by which we could identify the state of society and the world at the time of His second or 'parousia' Coming. He foretold a morally degenerate but technologically advanced society, and a repetition of "free love" with miscegenation between the Seed of the Serpent and Adam's race "as it was in the days of Noah". We call this forbidden wickedness 'multiculturalism'.
Jesus warned us His 'parousia' Coming would be as a "thief," and could not be observed by our natural senses as the visit of a thief is generally unseen and unrecognized until after his departure when precious possessions are missed. The world will not see Him or know He has been until our families notice His tiny end-time Church is missing, having been translated, and finding themselves cast into the great tribulation with the hypocrites, "shall weep and gnash with their teeth".
Brother Branham's Message was the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 that awoke the end-time sleeping virgins, calling them out from Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Revelation 18:4).
Matthew 25:1-13, "Then [when all of these social, moral and spiritual conditions typed out in the Old Testament have repeated in our day, and God's prophet has delivered his Message introducing Christ's 'parousia'], the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins, who took their own lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom."
Ten is the number of the full temporal development of life or perfection of divine order as in the ten toes of the image of Nebuchadnezzar's dream (Daniel 2:41-42), the ten horns and ten heads of the coming new world order (Daniel 7:7-24; Revelation 12:3; 13:1; 17:3, 12-17), or the day of Atonement. Ten is the number of course of time, the reckoning up of the double five, the well-used or badly-used freedom of (Gk.) 'Kairos' time and the number of judgment.
These marriageable maidens represent the sanctified church, separated from the world and from worldly contamination. Of course there have been wise and foolish virgin in all nine dispensations of the Gentile dispensation but the setting of this parable is in the end-time after the revelation of the Seven Seals.
These individuals are virgins to the Word, keeping themselves pure in expectation of His Coming, not denominational harlots who claim they are the Bride of Christ but commit fornication with man-made creed and tradition. Note each virgin carries her own lamp, signifying possession and identification with the "letter" of the present Truth, with justification and sanctification thereby, and independent of each of her companions.
The Bride has awaited Christ's 'parousia' with vigilant and expectant faith while for over 2,000 years He tarried afar off calling the full number of her Gentile members. Lamps and night signify the physical absence of the Sun of Righteousness.
II Timothy 4:8, "Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me at that day [of the first resurrection]: and not to me alone, but to all them who love His appearing." Not his physical return or even His 'parousia,' but His shining forth to illuminate and to confirm His Word with manifestation as in the ministry of Brother Branham, your personal revelations and answers to prayer. "In the days of the Voice of the seventh angel, the mystery of God should be finished" and made Light in His appearing to you.
Hebrews 9:28, "Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him expectantly waiting even unto the end He will [visually] appear the second time without sin [having disposed of sin once and for all at His first Coming unto salvation" by the redemption of our body in glorified form].
"Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. And while the Bridegroom tarried [from Pentecost to the end of the Laodicean Church Age], they all nodded and fell asleep".
The five foolish virgin each had their own lampthe "letter" of the Message for their hour. Intellectual understanding caused them to go forth to meet the Bridegroom, but they did not receive sufficient Oil of the Spirit to quicken the "letter" to Life in their soul. Whereas these foolish placed their priority on possessing the lamp of the Message, the priority for the wise was the Oil. For them spiritual Life and essence went before the outward form and appearance of faith. For this reason I admonish believers, particularly ministers, to take Message quotes to the Scripture from Genesis to Revelation, and preach from that.
"And at midnight, [the most unfit hour in which to obtain that which they lacked] there was a cry made, Behold, the Bridegroom comes; go out to meet Him." [It is midnight in the life of the Church now, just before the end of the world. The sliver of Light from early Laodicea has long been eclipsed and the worldly spirit is so far in the ascendancy, what is called "the church" is no more than the world with God's Name on it, while the true Church is once again in the wilderness unrecognized by the world.
This "midnight cry "is the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 calling God's people out from PART-Word and denominational guesswork into Christ the fullness of the Word (I Corinthians 13:10; Ephesians 1:10; II Thessalonians 2:1; Revelation 18:4). This is the Message of the Prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7 that has been announcing Christ's 'parousia' Coming since the revelation of the Seven Seals in March, 1963. This verse is speaking of the end-time and demonstrates clearly there are both wise and foolish virgin in our Message Churches.
"Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their own lamps," or removed the carbon of doctrinal ashes from their Light of spiritual understanding or faith, cutting away pagan doctrines of Trinities and unscriptural baptisms by sprinkling and pouring in three Titles of Father, Son and Holy Ghost in lieu of the Name of those three offices which is Lord Jesus Christ. They repented of man-made traditions of Easter, Christmas, catechisms, and Bible-denying Apostles' Creeds (so-called), and went to Christ the Word who has been put outside their denominational camps (Revelation 3:17-20).
"And the foolish begged the wise, Share your oil with us; for our lamps are going out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there will not be enough for us and you: go instead to them that sell, and buy for yourselves."
An essential feature of the Christian walk is propriety, individuality, preparation and independence of others because we are called to a peculiar and personal Spiritual Life. The relationship between the Word and our soul is that binding intimacy of husband and wife that cannot be shared with third parties. This intimacy is the sharing of secret talk which in Spiritual terms is the revelation or faith Christ whispers on making love to His elect. Though we may try to impart these intimacies those without will at best receive an intellectual understanding unless they were foreknown of God and in the Lamb's Book of Life from the foundation of the world.
The foolish virgins have insufficient Oil or Holy Spirit to shine Light on the present Truth and regenerate their souls. Perhaps they have not encountered the Word for their day because you or I neglected to speak with them and their unregenerate pastor, not being in the faith is unable to pass the Life through the Body by the quickening power of the revealed Word. Maybe they were dilatory and neglected to prove all things personally in their own Bibles and content to have their pastor "do their religion for them" have a second hand religion of the Word for the hour without the Spirit. Perhaps they were impatient like Eve and many people today, stopping to listen long enough to receive an intellectual conception of part but not all of the Word and its revelation. Consequent upon their haste they are deceived.
All of God's elect will understand the common faith but it will be received and confirmed personally from God the Word. Hence the wise say to the foolish, "Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: go instead to them that sell, and buy for yourselves." The wise can speak with a man for a few minutes and the Word test declares whether he's received the Holy Ghost or not. They knew they would be wasting their own time and resources trying to share the faith with the foolish, so they advised them to see some minister in whom they have confidence.
This is evident from the number ten which points to the perfect secular (worldly) development of the Church. The ten virgins represent the whole Church and each holds to the "letter" and outward sanctifying power of the Message. Jesus foretold the ministry would be so close it would deceive the very elected if that were possible (Matthew 24:24). Only the Word test can distinguish the foolish from the wise.
If we compare Cain with his half-brother Abel, or Moab with Israel, we find they both loved God and believed the letter of His requirement to worship, but like the foolish virgin, Cain and Moab were without revelation. And Jesus said He would build His Church on the rock of Spiritual revelation from the Father (Matthew 16:17-18).
Romans 8:6-9, "To be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is Life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, nor can it be. Therefore those who are still under the control of the nature of this world cannot please God. But if the Spirit of God dwells in you you are controlled by the Spirit and not in the flesh. Any man without the Spirit of Christ is none of His".
These foolish virgin love God and were careful to secure their own lamp of Message tapes and Spoken Word books. They have memorized the quotes, live by the "letter," and ran out at midnight to consult their pastor. But they are without the Spirit, and works without faith is death.
"While they went to buy, the Bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with Him to the marriage: and the door was shut."
This has been the situation since the Bridegroom came forty years ago in the revelation of the Seven Seals. The foolish virgin have run to the Charismatic Movement and Message churches, purchased videos, tapes, books, magazines and attended meetings around the world desperately trying to buy Oil. Meanwhile, the marriage, which is the new birth, has been in process since the day of Pentecost almost 2,000 years ago, and takes place here on earth. The Marriage is the Oil. The door will shut at the end of the Gentile dispensation, ushering in the resurrection of the departed New Testament saints, the manifestation of the sons of God and our translation to the Wedding Supper in the air. That hour will come upon the foolish virgin one Nisan 14 or Easter time in Roman Catholic mythology very soon.
"Afterward came also the rest of the virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open the door for us. But He answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not as My Bride. Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man comes".
The Son of man has come to incarnate His Bride, and when He departs He will take us Home with Him.
You will notice these virgins have all come out from the Judaeo-Roman Catholic false church and her once Protestant image whose people all become denominational harlots at the close of the dispensation. Few of their names will be found in the Book of Life when Satan is cast out to incarnate the pope and rule the New World Order (Revelation 17:8). Then the 144,000 elect Israelites, the foolish virgin and other classes who are "saved" will be martyred (Revelation 13:8-18).
Revelation 20:11-14, "I saw a great white throne, and the One who sat on it, from whose face earth and heaven fled away; but they found no place to hide. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before God; and the books [documenting the works of the sinners] were opened: and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works."
"And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were each judged according to their works. And Death and Hades were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death".
In Matthew 25:31-46, Jesus likened those named in the books of the sinners to "goats" which deceive and mislead those named in the Book of Life and likened to "sheep," who constitute the various classes of the "saved," including the heathen who knew nothing of the Word of God and whose names remain on the Book of Life. Both will be judged by Jesus Christ and the wise virgin. The "goats" will be cast into the lake of Fire while the "sheep" will appeal their case and be granted into eternal Life. They will not enter New Jerusalem, for the City of God is Christ and His Bride with the elect of all Ages, the "saved" non-elect will live around the earth and tithe of their increase to the City (Revelation 21:24-27).
In man's world order "the way of the wicked prospers, and all that deal treacherously are happy" (Jeremiah 12:1) whereas the Bride of Christ has endured great tribulation from the day of Pentecost, particularly from so-called "Jews." Jesus said, "Unless the days of tribulation are shortened there will be no flesh saved for the translation, but for our sakes those days will be shortened" by this end-time Message (Matthew 24:21-22; Revelation 1:9; 7:14; I Thessalonians 4:16).
Throughout the Gentile dispensation there have been two spirits working side by side in the churches as they once stood side by side in the Garden of Eden. One is the Holy Spirit while the other is Satan. Christ and anti-Christ, Jesus and Judas, Jacob and Esau, always twinsso close that if it were possible they would deceive the very elect. Judas was the most trusted by Jesus' disciples. Judas was justified, sanctified, ordained an apostle who performed miracles, but was without the faith. Remember, my Charismatic friends, the Gifts of the Spirit are no indication of new birth. Don't imagine speaking in other tongues has anything to do with regeneration. Judas manifested greater miracles than you ever will but instead of going to Pentecost he betrayed the Lord of Glory and was lost (John 4:1; 17:17; Matthew 10:1-4; Acts 1:16-17). These two spirits are binding subjects into their kingdoms today; one with the Seal of the Holy Spirit, the other by the mark of the beast, and both of them preaching the "letter" of Brother Branham's Message. It is that close!
Remember, it is the once Protestant churches that are now uniting into the image of the Roman Catholic beast of Daniel's vision. These will murder the "saved" after the second crucifixion as the Hebrew denominations united with the Edomites and Khazars to murder Christians after the first crucifixion. Daniel 2 prophesied "They shall mingle themselves with the seed of men." These treacherous cowards without faith love the praises of unregenerate religious men more than they love God yet they know not His Word.
Those who do not receive the restoration ministry God delivered through the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7 will be cast into the great tribulation (Acts 3:19-23; Revelation 22:17-19). Everyone who has heard and rejected this Message is condemned already (Matthew 12:32; John 6:29; Revelation 3:19-20; 22:17-19).
This Message is the "midnight cry." It is your proposal of marriage, and your release from bondage to sin, into the liberty of Christ. A Hebrew bondservant could go free after seven years, but if he plainly prefers servitude and worldly possessions then his master shall take him before the judges, and bore through his ear with an awl and he shall serve him forever (Exodus 21:1-6). His master types Satan.
You have heard the certain sound of God's trumpet in this teaching. My denominational friend, you are bound by God's unchanging Word to prove these things in your own Bible. Whether you obey His command to search the Scriptures or not is your decision. Should you reject this Message which is the Gospel of your salvation, your ears of Spiritual hearing will be marked by an awl and you will serve your master, the Devil, forever. It is that easy, that quick, and that permanent to receive the mark of the beast and cross from mercy to judgment. nl289.htm
