US massacres Civilians in Fallujah
November 10, 2004 The world may never know exactly how many Iraqis are being murdered or maimed in Fallujah. The Pentagon does not bother to count its victims and has imposed a regime of strict censorship, abetted by the self-enforcement of the corporate media. However, from the few reports coming out of the besieged city, it is absolutely clear that the basic purpose of the US campaign is to reduce it to rubble, killing and terrorizing as many inhabitants as possible.
Residential buildings, hospitals and mosques have all been bombed, and American troops are engaging in a house-to-house search of whatever remains. Tens of thousands of civilians remain in Fallujah, a medium-sized city near Baghdad that is normally home to 300,000 people. Full story: wsws.org
Comment: In the eyes of the alien-controlled Pentagon Iraqi Goyim (i.e. human cattle) are a lesser breed then US Goyim.
Stickers put in Evolution Text Subject of Federal Trial
Atlanta, November 8, 2004 A federal judge began hearing testimony on Monday about whether the Cobb County School District should be allowed to leave stickers in biology textbooks saying that evolution was "a theory, not a fact" and should be "approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered."
In a lawsuit against the district, the American Civil Liberties Union is arguing on behalf of five parents that the stickers violate the constitutional separation of church and state. . . The stickers were placed in the textbooks in 2002. . .

Iraq's New Patent Law: Declaration of War against Farmers
For generations, small farmers in Iraq operated in an essentially unregulated, informal seed supply system. Farm-saved seed with free innovation and exchange of planting materials among farming communities has long been the basis of agricultural practice. This has been made illegal under the new law. The seeds farmers are now allowed to plant"protected" crop varieties brought into Iraq by transnational corporations in the name of agricultural reconstructionwill be the property of the corporations. While historically the Iraqi constitution prohibited private ownership of biological resources, the new US-imposed patent law introduces a system of monopoly rights over seeds. Full story: grain.org
Comment: This is a program for world depopulation and the return to serfdom.
Bush's Global War on Christians
October 30, 2004 The current policies of the Bush administration are threatening to absolutely devastate ancient and pious Christian communities whose blood will be on all our heads. To deal with the subject honestly, it must be acknowledged that it almost appears as if President George Walker Bush were waging a global war against Christians . . . Among the primary tenets of Ba'athist ideology was a dedication to religious tolerance . . . "And Saddam reportedly sometimes attended services at Christian churches in Baghdad and even delivered an annual Christmas address" . . . To say the least, since being liberated from Saddam, things have gone badly for a great many Iraqis. However, the time has been especially harsh for the Assyrian Christians . . . Christian homes and private land are being appropriated. . . Perhaps if the Assyrians and others renounced Christ and embraced the Talmud, American Christians would care what happens to them? . . .

My Kingdom is not of this World
Genesis 3:15, "I will put enmity between you, Mr. Serpent, and Adam's wife, and between your seed and her Seed: her Seed shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel".
If the serpent is now on his belly as a snake, if women still bear their children in sorrow, and man still cultivates crops in competition with the weeds, the "enmity" is extant today.
From Cain and Abel through their offspring to the present day this enmity has existed between the seed of the Serpent and the seed of the first Adam who are all born of woman. The same enmity stands between the seed of discrepancy born of Satan's lies and the Seed of the last Adam born of the woman or true Church, by the foolishness of preaching the Word of the hour (Luke 8:11).
All Scripture describes the battle between God and Satan. Satan is building his kingdom with the seed of the subtle SerpentCain's descendants who have persecuted Adam's children to the present daybut also by Adam's seed who have been seduced by receiving his thoughts. For man is what he thinks in his heart (Proverbs 23:7).
The offspring of Satan by the hiss of Serpent are at war with the offspring of God by Adam's kinsman Redeemer.
Those advancing "globalization" and world hegemony are building Satan's worldly kingdom of death. "One born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble" (Job 14:1; Matthew 4:8-9). From Eve's deceit in the Garden of Eden, Satan's kingdom has been built on intellectual reasoning and natural procreation which ends in death. Thus we must be born anew by faith in the Word of the Man Jesus Christ, for "His Word is Spirit and eternal Life".
John 18:36: "Jesus told Pontius Pilate, My kingdom is not of this world: if My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but at the present time My kingdom not from here".
Abraham understood this. Even as he was in Canaan pacing out his temporal inheritance, he was "waiting for a City which has foundations, whose Builder and Maker is God" (Hebrews 11:10). Abraham's longing was not for Jerusalem whose ancient name Jebus, means "threshing place." This first Jerusalem was built by Jebusites who were physical serpent's seed. Abraham longed for the City of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem which has been in construction by faith for six thousand years.
David purchased the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite. There he built an altar of stone, a place where God could meet with believers under the shed blood of an innocent substitute, like the temporary offering of a lamb which typed Jesus Messiah, their true kinsman Redeemer. And on that ground Solomon built the temple. Today God's altar is erected in the heart of the believers under the Blood of the Word, for we are the temple of the living God, and threshing, winnowing, separation and "Judgment must begin at the house of God" (I Peter 4:17).
II Timothy 3:16-17, "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness," so as to separate the wheat from the chaff. "That the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work".
John the Baptist said, "Messiah Will baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly purge His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the garner; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire" (Matthew 3:11-12).
By faith Abraham knew he was part of that City being transformed from God's foreknowledgethat dimension not seen through the veil of mortal flesh but revealed to anointed eyesinto the glorious form of a city whose foundation was the kinsman Redeemer for whom he waited.
In I Corinthians 3:10-13, Paul, the prophet who wrote the New Testament, explains how he laid the foundation for this City of God: "No other foundation can any man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ." And he warns the builders, whose ministry who will follow his, to exercise with great care the materials they employ to build on his foundation, for every man's work will be manifest to Christ's end-time Bride in the day Christ reveals the Seven Seals on the Book of Redemption.
Each man's work will only be as worthy as the materials from which it has been constructed. If he builds from the Word for his day, his work will be good work, and true. If he used man-made brick for stone and slime for mortar, that is, denominational creed and tradition instead of the manifested Word for his day, his work will be condemned and he shall suffer loss, yet although he is not born-again, he is "saved" because he had built on the foundation of the Word made flesh in his kinsman Redeemer.
It is important that we distinguish between the "saved," and the "saints." All in Adam's race is "saved" just so long as their names remain on the Book of Life written from the foundation of the world. Once their names are removed they are spiritual Serpent's seed, and lost like the physical Serpent's seed from Cain's race whose names never were on that Book. The "saints" are those whose names are in the Book of Life of the Lamb. These are the elect and Seed of God by faith in Christ. They are eternal Life and can never come to the judgment but will judge the world and grant the "saved" in to eternal Life at the White Throne judgment.
In the day when the Book of Redemption was revealed, the seven angels or portions of the Spirit that anointed the Church Age Messengers to see that part of the City their Message was predestinated to build, merged into the fullness of the Spirit to reveal the fullness of the Word in Christ's parousia. Next they gather the tares and bind them by men exercising the gifts of the Spirit without the Spiritdenominational Pentecostals, Charismatics, etc, by fundamental preachers who have the Word without the Spiritdenominational believers like the Baptists; and by man-made doctrines with neither the Word or Spirit like Judaeo-Roman Catholic, pseudo-Protestant World Council of Churches, united religions (Ephesians 1:10; II Thessalonians 2:10-11; Revelation 18:4).
When the time came that men would not endure sound doctrine and turned away their ears to fablesthe falling away of which Paul forewarnedGod's prophet introduced Christ's parousia through the preaching of the Sealsbut for about the next twelve years the Bride received mainly the "letter" of his Message which sanctified her as her denominational husband became dead to her. Meanwhile the tares were taking their revival first. Like Jannes and Jambres, they became so engrossed with their ability to use God's gifts, that by the time the revelation of the Mysteries began to break to the Bride the hearts of the thorns and briars had been hardened, like Pharaoh's heart through the commonplace and their seeming handle on the Supernatural. And becoming scoffers at Christ's 'parousia,' followed after their own lusts (II Peter 3:3-4).
After the tares have been bound by voluntarily receiving the mark of the beastthree and a half years before it is forced, the fullness of the Spirit on the fullness of the Word will catch-up Christ's end-time Bride in the translation for the Wedding Supper in the air (Matthew 13:24-33, 36-43).
We are "new Jerusalem, the holy City John saw coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a Bride adorned for her Husband"God's righteous tabernacle that will shine forth as the sun in the Kingdom of our Father. And the nations of the "saved" shall walk in the Light of God in Jesus Christ and in His glory, the Bride of all Ages (Revelation 21:2-3).
The time of the binding and separation began with the revelation of the Seventh Seal. Jesus called it, "the shortening of days." It is during this time that the false Christs and false prophets arise, preaching this very Message with all manner of lying wonders: missionaries presenting the letter of the Message without the Spirit, mystic lights"investigating judgment angels"unscriptural doctrines supported by Message quotes taken out of contextso close as would almost deceive the very elect if that were possible.
Each one of us must be particularly careful what teaching we receive in the womb of our mind, and because the fullness of the Word is present believers stand on the razor's edge between righteousness and sin. Without the fullness of the Spirit they will fall to the left or to the right. Don't rely on the "letter" of the Message alone, or receive my teachings or the preaching of any other man until you have confirmed them in your own Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
I have often been told Christ's 'Parousia' is Jehovah Witness doctrine; and that there is no such thing because Brother Branham, who cautioned us "say what the quotes say," never spoke of it. Well, one might also call Jesus Christ, Roman Catholic doctrine, because the Old Testament quotes make no mention of any 'Jesus Christ'.
In both instances the skeptic has taken the "letter" without the Spirit and introduced the slur of "Jehovah Witness" or "Roman Catholic," trigger words like "holocaust, anti-Semitic, hate," or "Nazi" that are employed to besmirch those whom they have chosen to make their antithesis, to prevent intelligent, open discussion with a view to discovering what is truth and justify their own sin. Or defenseless men whose Light and Life they fear, whose testimony they silence and whom they can intimidate and harass in pursuit of a secret synthesis.
It matters not what a prophet has said. It matters what he means. "The letter kills but the Spirit brings Life and peace" (I Corinthians 15:56; II Corinthians 3:6-11).
It is not possible to legislate a people to God. The Law given to Israel on Mount Sinai was a curse and rod of chastisement because of their unbelief. Israel abandoned grace for condemnation and judgment, and broke God's Covenant even before Moses descended the Mount (Exodus 32; Deuteronomy 28; 27:26; Nehemiah 10:29; Daniel 9:11; Galatians 3:10, 13). Neither is it possible for one to be born into God by natural procreation as racial supremacist self-styled Jews would have us to imagine. The lives of Esau and Jacobtwin brothers born of the same holy parents confirm this point. Without the Spirit the Word of God means death (Genesis 2:17; Ezekiel 18:4; Malachi 1:1-5; Romans 9:6).
Isaiah 55:8-9, "My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts".
Enoch walked with God, having the testimony that by his faith he pleased God. Only by faith can one become a child and friend of God. Faith is a clear understanding of God's expressed thoughts or Word revealed personally to you as the life of Abraham confirmed.
God is building the New Jerusalem upon Spiritual understanding of His unfailing Word, not on flesh and blood, born, or claiming descent from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Matthew 16:17-19; John 3:3-6; I Corinthians 15:50). Brother Branham most certainly introduced Christ's 'parousia' as he was commissioned by a Voice from heaven over the Ohio River in 1933, but he spoke in English for the common people who received him gladly, not in the Greek of theologians. He spoke of the "Coming of the Son of man," and if we take that word coming back to the Greek we find it is 'parousia' which means "arrival and subsequent presence." It does not refer to Jesus' physical return but to His presence by the revelation of the fullness of the anointed Word in the sense in which I may be in your presence during a telephone conversation, in a letter, email, or on film, while standing on the other side of the world. Jesus' first Coming and His second physical return are described by the Greek word, 'erchomai'.
Likewise, Moses was not named in the Book of Genesis; neither John the Baptist, Jesus Christ, William Branham or any of the great New Testament identities was mentioned by Name in the Old Testament. But their ministry is clearly prophesied, and the men whose ministries fulfill those Scripture were the expressed Word of God for their daywhatever their names.
Quite recently a fine Brother and scholar in the quotations of Brother Branham's Message wrote giving notice that I am a false ministerso beware! He said he would never read this Newsletter or any of the teachings on our Church Website because I speak contrary to what the Prophet said on the tapes, and said, Brother Branham never mentioned the 'Illuminati'.
Well, I can find no evidence that Brother Branham ever spoke of the Illuminati by that name, but he often spoke of Illuminus President Franklin D. Roosevelt. He spoke of Nazism, and of Communism which are works of the Illuminati. He spoke of the union of churches under Rome and of their covenant with "Jewish" banksters that will establish the initial stage of Lucifer's totalitarian New World Order, another move of the Illuminati. He described how miscegenation arising from the original sin, which brought God's wrath upon earth in the days of Noah, would repeat in these last days to create the racial, religious and cultural hatred and divisions among mankind essential to fomenting universal madness. The Illuminati is working to bring this controlled conflict into being through huge waves of intentionally displaced refugees (thesis), and so-called 'racial and religious vilification and anti-discrimination legislation' (antithesis), to divide and conquer the once Christian, once prosperous West and introduce totalitarian one world government. This racial stew, called "multiculturalism" by politically correct subterfuge, is being brought to the boil slowly in hopes that we Goyim, or "human frogs" will not immediately notice the heat and jump out of their United Nations' cook pot in rebellion against them.
The Illuminati envision the ultimate chaos of universal revolution will enable them to destroy all religions, nations and racial divisions, and establish the final stage of their New World Order, which will be the kingdom of Lucifer wherein a vastly depopulated world of about two billion or less will worship Lucifer. However, their plans will terminate along with all life in Armageddon.
Brother Branham spoke of the United Nations Organization, which like the League of Nations before it is an Illuminati stratagem. He spoke of the vote fraud in the election of President Kennedy and his assassinationtwo acts of the Illuminati. He spoke of the Great Depression, of the bankruptcy of the United States and the evil deception of foreign aid. He mentioned the "squeeze" that will force a stop to preaching the full Gospel that is already proscribed by crooked legislation. Not the "letter," the Spirit! The bloodline that slaughtered God's children from Abel to Zechariah, to Jesus Christ and the martyrs of the early Church, continues to kill God's people; if not by the sword as Esau is killing Jacob in Iraq, by slander and manipulative legislation with which Esau destroys Christians by reputation today (Matthew 23:33-35).
All of these plans and actions foretold in the Bible and expounded by Brother Branham have been trumpeted by various organs of the Illuminati which operate as a guerrilla movement in all organizations and institutions, always under a different name and in a different occupation.
False Christs and false prophets with chutzpah in lieu of a new birth have allowed men who teach Jesus is in hell being boiled in hot excrement to speak from behind their pulpits. (See the Babylonian Talmud, Gittin 57a, footnotes #2, 3, and Sanhedrin 106a on the Church Website where Jesus is called Balaam because He is accused of enticing Israel to go astray). Brother Branham said no man has the right to stand behind the sacred desk until he is born-again!
II Timothy 3:1-13 calls such ministers within the church of the end-time "evil men and seducers . . . who resist the truth (such as Christ's parousia and Daniel's Seventieth Week) men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith . . . whose folly shall be manifest to all men" who are Spirit-filled and Spirit-led.
Luke 6:43-45, "A good tree does not bear bad fruit; nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. For every tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks".
We know this is now the harvest time, because the Seed which is the Word of God has all been sown, and Brother Branham's ministry has restored the former or teaching rain of the apostles and prophets (Joel 2:23; Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 13:24-30,37-38; 17:11; Acts 3:19-23; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7). As the teaching rain of God's Spirit fell upon "all flesh," Hebrew and Gentile, for the past 2,000 years, the teaching rain restored by Brother Branham's ministry has fallen on "the just and the unjust" within the circle of this Message and all who have heard its report (Matthew 5:45).
The wheat plant is not the seed but the carrier of the seed as Mary was not Abraham's Royal Seed but the carrier of the Seed. Likewise church organizationwhether in the circle of this Message or beyond is not the Seed, but the carrier of the Seed. And like the wheat plant, the church dried up and died once the Life had passed through its several stages and returned to the original grain. This explains why organized religion, even around this Message, is as dead as midnight and bound for the tribulation.
Those who are elect and born-again know this, and can discern those who are their Brothers in the Spirit, others who are fine men and women but not in the faith, and those who are deceivers who are off the Word and unwilling and unable to receive correction by the Word.
Keeping the Law or being born into a particular race of people does not make one elect, or chosen of God. God's Chosen people is the Bride of Christ gathered from every nation, tribe and tongue, both genders and every color in Adam's race for His Name. These are God's house and the New Jerusalem. Not only is "the household of God built upon the foundation of the doctrine or faith of the apostles and prophets, but Jesus Christ is the chief corner stone and Head of the corner . . . by speaking the Truth in love we grow up in all things into Him who is the HeadChrist" (Ephesians 2:19-22; 4:15). That is, Christ's end-time Bride grows to maturity in the Token which is the Life of Christ, not just portion of the Life received by the PART-Word, or Church Age saints.
The Bride Groom returned through the Message of the Prophet to bring the Bride Tree to maturity for the manifestation of the Sons of God and then reveal His parousia to 144,000 elect Israelites through the ministry of two Hebrew prophets as foretold by Zechariah 4.
As you read this Newsletter, two prophets are preaching somewhere in Israel, establishing a following of believers pending the end of the Gentile dispensation and their anointing with the nature of the Spirit that endued Moses and Elijah.
The two olive trees in Zechariah 4 represent the fullness of the written Word in the Old and New Testaments. Between them is the golden Lampstand representing "the Lord of the whole earth" and His Bride. The two branches that bring forth the Holy Spirit are Moses and Elijah who introduced the fullness of the Spirit that makes up the Bride and represent the two Hebrew prophets who will introduce Christ and His Bride to Israel.
Zerubbabel means "sown in Babylon." Abraham's promised Seed was sown in Babylon almost 2,000 years before his faith became Mary's faith that received the Seed delivered by the angel Gabriel (Genesis 12:1-3). Now, almost 2,000 years after the Seed was harvested and resown on the day of Pentecost, it is harvest time once more: Time for the latter rain to fall at the Seventh Trump to raise the sleeping Church to glorified flesh, and anoint the living end-time Bride to wave the Holy Spirit in the manifestation of the Sons of God.
The end of the Laodicean Church Age sealed the PART-Word Body and completed a six-sided pyramid lacking its headstone. But without us they cannot be made perfect or glorified. The end-time Bride, together made up of the fullness of the Word, constitute Christ manifested in flesh. The Holy Spiritnot just portion of the Spiritbaptizes us into the Body and unites the Headstone to the rest of the pyramid.
Zechariah 4:9, "The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent me to you".
The Seed sown in Babylon became the foundation of the City who's Builder and Maker is God. Matthew 21:42, "The Stone which the builders rejected and hung on Calvary's cruel cross has become the Chief cornerstone. This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes?"
Revelation 1:8,11, "I am Alpha and Omega, the Word at the beginning and the same Word restored at the ending of construction, says the Lord, who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty. Tell the vision of the finished building glorified (Revelation 1:12-20), and send it to the seven Churches of PART Word in-between the foundation and headstone of the fullness".
Small wonder the headstone cried "Grace, grace unto it," for the restored Word was also sown in BabylonMystery Babylon the Great, the Roman Catholic mother and her denominational harlot daughtersbut Brother Branham's Message called the end-time Bride out of Babylon and into Christ (Zechariah 4:6-7; Revelation 18:4).
The pyramid City of the saints of Pentecost and seven Church Ages is capped by the fullness of the Word manifest in Christ's end-time Bride, making nine dispensations of grace. Nine marks the completeness, the end and issue of all things as to manthe finality and judgment of man and all his works.
John 5:26-27, "As the Father has Life in Himself; so has He granted the Son to have Life in Himself; and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of man".
Revelation 22:14-15, "Blessed are those who do his commandments that they may have the right to the Tree of Life, and may enter in through the gates into the City. For without are dogs and sorcerers and whoremongers and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie". nl349.htm
