Bible Believers' Newsletter 406
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The "original sin" was hybridizing or miscegenation. God expelled Adam and Eve from the paradise of Eden for this great wickedness and He will not allow us to return on the basis of its replication today. Miscegenation between the families of Cain and Adam spells genocide to Adam's race, for the offspring of such misalliances are not on the Book of Life and cannot breed themselves back. They are therefore without redemption.
When miscegenation reached its climax God destroyed all but one of Cain's lineages in the Great Flood. Perhaps the most visible prophecy for the last generation before the Day of the Lord is the repetition of this great sin of Genesis 6:1-4. Daniel 12:4 prophesied waves of refugees deliberately displaced from their homelands following the revelation of the Seven Seals which signaled "the time of the end" and the second or 'parousia' Coming of Messiah in the Office of Son of man. Jesus said, at this time the sin of the days of Noah would repeat (Matthew 24:37).
God's Word is true. Messiah opened the Seven Seals in 1963 and returned in W_O_R_D form through the mouth of His Prophet, William Branham (Amos 3:7; Acts 3:21; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:1-7). Soon He will return to Israel through the mouths of two Hebrew prophets (Zechariah 4; II Peter 1:21; Revelation 11).
This phenomenon of miscegenation was most marked from the latter years of the twentieth century to the present day. Of course it is as unnatural as grazing sheep in lion country, but wicked men who control education and communications have brainwashed the silent majority who know not God and His unchanging Word. They have caused confusion by changing the meaning of language. The word Jew once meant a resident of Judea regardless of religion or race, whereas nowadays it has been changed to mean an Israelite. Miscegenation was once known to be sinful and accursed of God. Today it is called "multiculturalism" and encouraged by prominent citizens who know not God. We live in the time foretold by the 'insider' George Orwell in his famous book, "1984," when love means hate and peace means war.
We read in Protocol 1:11, "The political has nothing in common with the moral. The ruler who is governed by the moral is not a skilled politician, and is therefore unstable on his throne. He who wishes to rule must have recourse both to cunning and to make-believe. Great national qualities, like frankness and honesty, are vices in politics, for they bring down rulers from their thrones more effectively and more certainly than the most powerful enemy. Such qualities must be the attributes of the kingdoms of the GOYIM, but we must in no wise be guided by them."
This issue of our Newsletter features an article from The Trumpet called "The Trouble with Immigration," which illustrates how these prophecies of Scripture are manifesting before our very eyes. F. D. Roosevelt said, "If something happens in politics you can bet it was planned that way." The 'hidden hand,' is seen working under another name and in a different occupation to divide and conquer the peoples of the world and replicate the "original sin."
Before a special meeting of the Emergency Council of European Rabbis in Budapest on January 12, 1952, Rabbi Emanuel Rabinovich said concerning progress towards their NWO, "We will openly reveal our identity with the races of Asia and Africa. I can state with assurance that the last generation of white children is now being born . . ."
Whoever "they" are they believe not Moses and the Old Testament, or Jesus and the New. And have no inheritance in this world or the world to come (Genesis 4:11-15; Malachi 1:1-4).
Not having a kinsman Redeemer their hatred for the white race is compounded by the fact we predominate in carrying the Gospel as foretold in Genesis 9:27. There was a time when white man stood on the Absolute of God's Word and rebuked their evil, while the more compliant Asian and African would follow his instructions. Since white man no longer takes the Bible as his Absolute he is disarmed and easily persuaded that he is guilty of all the evils and brutalities the 'hidden hand' has done in his name: slavery, colonization, wars, capitalism, Communism, Fascism, and Nazism, Crusades, inquisitions, and so-on.
Jesus said, "If you continue in My Word, you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:31-32).
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
US State Department says New Testament is 'Anti-Semitic'?
The [US] State Department's Report on Global Anti-Semitism was not written by the State Department. It was "ghosted" by the international Jewish religious, educational, fraternal and charitable organization, B'nai B'rith and its Anti-defamation League. Only they could marshal such an extensively detailed report from 50 countries, utilizing their worldwide "hate crimes" statistics-gathering capacities.
. . . B'nai B'rith International describes itself as the "body and soul" of organized Jewry. Its half million Jewish members constitute a powerful lobbying base, setting up anti-hate bureaucracies (and ending free speech) in many of the more than 50 countries in which B'nai B'rith is established. This anti-Christian, international Jewish religious organization, uniting synagogue and state, is creating a federal hate-crimes Gestapo. Its "Department of Global Anti-Semitism" is laying down outrageous definitions of the "hate crime" of anti-Semitism that make Bible-believing Christians into anti-Semitic "haters" . . .

The Pink City
Local tourism officials plan on turning Tel Aviv into the gay capital of the world; Israel Hotel Association official: Tel Aviv and gay people are a perfect fit.
The IHA in Tel Aviv, along with a local gay rights group, turned to European travel agents who focus on the gay community and requested they prepare vacation packages to Tel Aviv. We are drafting plans to encourage gay tourism from Germany, England and Holland . . . Jerusalem is scheduled to host the 2006 World Pride Parade, but Ziv is already working to have it moved to Tel Aviv. Full story: ynetnews.com
Comment: I doubt the event will be relocated to Tel Aviv, because Jesus said that "spiritually, Jerusalem will be called Sodom and Egypt" in this time (Revelation 11:8).
Mexican Volcano spews Smoke, Ash on Homes
Mexico City, December 2, 2005 Mexico's Popocatepetl volcano spewed out columns of smoke up to 5 km high and rained ash on nearby homes today, but disaster prevention officials ruled out a full-blown eruption.
Popocatepetl, whose snow-capped peak can be seen from the capital 64km away on a clear day, belched out two enormous columns of billowing smoke and sprinkled ash on the village of Amecameca in the State of Mexico . . .

The Trouble with Immigration
Foreigners can bring more than just their luggage.
Over 1.2 million legal and illegal immigrants settle on American soil each year. Since 1990, the number of aliens living in the United States has mushroomed 43 percent; the Latino population alone doubled between 1980 and 2000, constituting 40 percent of all US growth. Today, 1 in 10 people in America is a foreigner.
The immigration explosion is not exclusive to the US. Fully 40 percent of today's Canadians were either born abroad or are children of Canadians born elsewhere. By 2011, immigrants are projected to account for all net population growth in Canada.
Over the next 25 years, 84 percent of the United Kingdom's population growth is expected to come from immigration.
As for illegal immigration, national borders are more porous than ever. In Canada, "gaps in Canada's border security are so severe that an airport accepts international passengers without on-site immigration checks, a marine border unit has no boat, a computer glitch systematically hides information about terrorists, and officers at 62 border crossings are unable to link to a computer to screen incoming travelers" (National Post, April 11).
In the crowded UK, where the population is roughly 60 million, an estimated 500,000 workers are thought to be illegal. If spouses, dependents and those not working are added, the "illegal" population is close to 1 million and climbing.
Governments are polarized over the issue. In America, some yearn to liberalize immigration laws. Others assert that uncontrolled immigration has burgeoned into a huge disaster that is rapidly getting worse.
The debate in England over immigration and multiculturalism has taken on extra meaning since London's terrorist bombings in July. In a few states in the US, illegal immigration has become so prevalent and its negative effects so dire that the state government has declared certain counties to be in a "state of emergency"a protocol generally used in the wake of hurricanes, floods, mass riots or other catastrophes.
In this globalized world, immigration has become a global quandary.
This issue is a two-edged sword. What was once seen as a blessing to many nations has become a terrible curse with seemingly unsolvable repercussions. Too few understand the crux of this complex problem.
Two areas affected by immigration cause particular concern: the economy and crime.
The hard work and perseverance of America's early immigrants did much to help the US become the richest and most powerful nation in the world. By 1869, in no small part thanks to the industrious nature of its immigrant population, America had attained the highest per-capita income in the world. That phenomenal wealth, together with a burgeoning population, created the world's first consumer-driven economy.
But economic tragedy struck. The stock market crash of 1929 gutted the American economy and thrust the nation into unprecedented hardship. It was in the midst of this economic depression that American politicians laid the foundation for a welfare state. From this time forward, the American government became the crutch on which needy citizens could lean.
Concurrent with the rising popularity of the federal welfare programs was the burgeoning of immigration. Immigrants began streaming into America, where many of the poorest and least educated were no longer required to subscribe to the traditional American work ethic and instead could rely on the federal government to take care of them. Similar problems occurred in Britain, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.
This trend continues today and the economic impact of immigrants on the federal government is phenomenal. Immigration analyst Norman Matloff stated, "The reason for this increased reliance on welfare is that for many immigrant groups, welfare in recent years has lost its stigma and has instead become a magnet, drawing them to the United States. As one Chinese senior in Oakland puts it, a common point of view is mh hou sit dai, Cantonese for 'Don't miss this great opportunity'" (Sacramento Bee, December 14, 1994). Matloff cited census data showing that, for example, 55 percent of the Chinese seniors who immigrated to California from 1980 to 1987 were on welfare by 1990.
In the era of Big Government, burdening the middle class and the rich with heavy taxes and giving handouts to an increasing number of poor dependents is heightening the ethnic strife and racial stereotypes. In this respect, even legal immigrants are placing an increasing burden on the US economy. When we factor in the economic cost of illegal immigrants, the picture grows increasingly dire. Illegal and legal immigration is costing America billions.
The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) estimated the total impact of illegal immigration on the federal budget: "[W]hen all taxes paid (direct and indirect) and all costs are considered, illegal households created a net fiscal deficit at the federal level of more than $10 billion in 2002. We also estimate that, if there was an amnesty for illegal aliens, the net fiscal deficit would grow to nearly $29 billion" ("The High Cost of Cheap Labor," Trumpet Magazine, August 2004).
No state has been more impacted financially by both illegal and legal immigration than California. "Analysis of the latest census data indicates that California's illegal immigrant population is costing the state's taxpayers more than $10.5 billion per year for education, medical care and incarceration. Even if the estimated tax contributions of illegal immigrant workers are subtracted, net outlays still amount to nearly $9 billion per year. The annual fiscal burden from those three areas of state expenditures amounts to about $1,183 per household headed by a native-born resident" (Federation for American Immigration Reform, "The Costs of Illegal Immigration to Californians," The Trumpet November 2004).
The economic costs associated with immigration are hitting the UK as well. The influx of immigrants has profoundly cost the government. The budget of the Immigration and Nationality Department of the Home Office in the fiscal year of 1998-1999 was 300 million pounds; by 2003-2004 that amount had risen to 1.9 billion pounds "a jaw-dropping increase of 633 percent".
Many of these immigrants are asylum seekers. More people apply for asylum in Britain than in any other EU country. Why? Because it's easier to enter, remain and claim asylum status there compared to other EU countries like Germany or France. Anyone can claim asylum upon arriving in the UK and cannot be expelled until his claim is rejected and he has exhausted any right of appeal. "Meanwhile, the claimant is entitled to free accommodation, emergency health care, children's education, a cash allowance and free legal aid" (Migration Watch UK February 2005).
Families that are denied asylum "continue to receive benefits worth an average of 15,000 pounds a year tax-free" (ibid., January 2004). Britain's shadow immigration minister admitted to the presence of over 250,000 failed asylum seekers in the UK (Express, May 18).
An added economic consequence of immigration is the bleeding of cash from host countries. Upon locating work in their host nation, many immigrants (legal or illegal) send a portion of their paychecks back home to their families. In the US, for example, Mexicans will send home $20 billion this year alone, according to projections by Mexico's Central Bank. This flood of cash will probably be the largest source of foreign exchange in Mexico. The cash from Mexicans working in the US is a driving force behind Mexico's economy: It amounts to the equivalent of 2 percent of its gross domestic product. No wonder the Mexican government has done little to curb the flow of illegal immigrants into the US and, in many documented cases, has actually condoned their illegal entry.
In 2004, India received $17.5 billion in the same manner. China, Pakistan and the Philippines also receive substantial wads in remittance. For these nations, illegal immigration is paying off quite nicely.
Heather MacDonald, in an article titled "The Illegal Alien Crime Wave," wrote, "Some of the most violent criminals at large today are illegal aliens." Yet in cities where the crime committed by aliens is highest, the police cannot use the most obvious tool to apprehend them: their immigration status" (City Journal, Winter 2004; emphasis ours throughout). MacDonald highlighted Los Angeles as an example: The city is home to numerous gangs, many of which are comprised of illegal immigrants from around the worldparticularly Asia, Latin America and South America. Alone and often without money or a place to live, illegal immigrants in big cities are prone to joining gangs in order to acquire food and shelter. Feeling secure among people of his own race or status (illegal), the new immigrant oftentimes embraces the gang as a surrogate family, and crime becomes his new occupation.
MacDonald highlighted the following examples:
In Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide (which total 1,200 to 1,500) target illegal aliens. Up to two thirds of all fugitive felony warrants (17,000) are for illegal aliens.
A California Department of Justice study reported in 1995 that 60 percent of the 20,000-strong 18th Street Gang in Southern California was illegal; police officers said the proportion was actually much greater. The bloody gang collaborated with the Mexican Mafiathe dominant force in California prisonson complex drug-distribution schemes, extortion and drive-by assassinations, and committed an assault or robbery every day in L.A. County. The gang had grown dramatically over the previous two decades by recruiting recently arrived youngsters, most of them illegal, from Central America and Mexico.
The leadership of the Columbia Lil' Cycos gang, which uses murder and racketeering to control the drug market around L.A.'s MacArthur Park, was about 60 percent illegal in 2002. A Mexican Mafia member and an illegal alien controlled the gang from prison while serving time for felonious reentry following deportation.
Referring to another L.A. gang, MacDonald stated, "[D]ozens of members of a ruthless Salvadoran prison gang have [sneaked] back into town after having been deported for such crimes as murder, assault with a deadly weapon and drug trafficking. Police officers know who they are and know that their mere presence in the country is a felony. Yet should a cop arrest an illegal for felonious reentry, it is he who will be treated as a criminal for violating the LAPD's [Los Angeles Police Department's] rule against enforcing immigration law.
"The LAPD's ban on immigration enforcement mirrors bans in immigrant-saturated cities around the country, from New York and Chicago to San Diego, Austin and Houston. These 'sanctuary policies' generally prohibit city employees, including the cops, from reporting immigration violations to federal authorities."
Making matters worse than the fact that illegal immigration contributes to high crime rates in many of America's larger cities is the reality that many of the illegal immigrants committing the crimes are protected by misguided policies set up by city and state governments.
"[Sanctuary] laws testify to the sheer political power of immigrant lobbies, a power so irresistible that police officials shrink from even mentioning the illegal alien crime wave. 'We can't even talk about it,' says a frustrated LAPD captain. 'People are afraid of a backlash from Hispanics.' Another LAPD commander in a predominantly Hispanic, gang-infested district sighs: 'I would get a firestorm of criticism if I talked about [enforcing the immigration law against illegals].' Neither captain would speak for attribution" (ibid).
James R. Edwards, an author who specializes in immigration, stated, "The impact [of illegal immigration] is seen particularly in crime: Record-high auto thefts in Arizona, drug trafficking in Salt Lake City, human smuggling rings in Los Angeles, D.C. sniper Lee Malvo, money laundering, prostitution, gang murders, and even slavery" (The Claremont Institute, November 22, 2004). The evidence proves that illegal immigrants are a driving force behind high crime rates in many American cities, particularly those close to the southern border.
Reflecting the impact illegal immigrants are having on America's crime statistics is the impact they are having on the US prison system. America's prisons are chock-full of illegal immigrants. The facts and figures are stunning.
"In 2002, nearly 29 percent, or 39,000 inmates, in the federal prison system were non-citizens. Based on prior research, we estimated that 59 percent of this total are illegal aliens. This translates into 17 percent of the federal prison population, and thus 17 percent of the $4.1 billion prison budget can be attributed to illegal alien households" (CIS, op cit). The fact that 17 percent of America's prisoners are illegal immigrants demonstrates the vast extent of their involvement in crime and criminal activities.
In Britain, illegal immigrants similarly contribute to crime. The large numbers of illegal immigrants seeking to work in the UK give rise to organized criminals who recruit and supply cheap labor for agricultural, catering, construction, food processing and manufacturing job markets. The majority of illegal immigrants entering the UK would not be able to do so without forged or stolen travel documents, transportation access, fraudulent sponsorship and other benefits provided by these crooks.
"Serious and organized criminals involved in both smuggling and trafficking make extensive use of bribery and corruption to support their activities. They exploit border guards, police and customs officers, and a range of political and official contacts in order to operate unhindered. They also collude with professionals who can assist them, including those in the legal profession" (National Criminal Intelligence Service report, 2003). Some illegal immigrants work for months or years to pay off the fee that these criminals charge.
Evidence also shows that illegal immigrants are used by organized criminals in drug trafficking, vehicle theft and even aggressive begging and pick-pocketing (especially in bigger cities like London) in order to obtain credit cards that can be used for further criminal activity.
Some believe immigration restrictions would not help solve crime problems and that the focus rather needs to be on dealing with the crime itself. They argue that crime is an inherent part of any society. While this argument has some validity because it recognizes that crime will exist as long as human nature remains unchanged, it is flawed.
Consider the gang situation in California. If every illegal immigrant was deported out of California and if illegals were prevented from coming in and joining gangs, would gang-related criminal activity stop? No. But would it drop? Yesand probably quite dramatically.
While prevention of illegal immigration wouldn't cure our crime problems, it would definitely reduce the number of crimes occurring in many of our larger cities, particularly those closer to our borders.
Because our enforcement agencies are handcuffed by lack of resources, as well as bureaucracy and political correctness, criminal activity conducted by illegal immigrants will only grow worse. Our cities will increasingly be robbed of peace and safety.
Terrorists in Our Midst
The economic and criminal impact of poorly managed immigration is hijacking the economies and largely peaceful societies of the US, Australia, Britain and Canada. Uncontrolled immigration, however, presents an even more sobering threat.
"After decades of attempting to dam the flow of Mexican immigrants crossing into the United States illegally, federal agents say a new crisis is emerging along the southern border, and they are helpless to stop it. Non-Mexicans are spilling over the border in record numberssome from countries with terrorist tiesand most are set free soon after being captured" (Christian Science Monitor, July 26). America's porous borders have become an attractive option for terrorists seeking entry into the nation.
"Already this year the number of non-Mexican apprehensions has far outpaced last year's total in just eight months" (ibid). Illegal immigrants from nations other than Mexico are flooding into America at an unprecedented rate.
"Other than Mexicans" (OTMs) must be returned to their country of origin. Officials cannot just send them back across the southern border, as they do most Mexicans. US law dictates that they be detained in the US pending a deportation hearing. "The problem is, immigration detention centers are packed, so most OTMs are given a court summons and told to return in three months. A full 85 percent don't" (ibid).
According to the US Border Patrol, 465,000 OTMs have exploited this "catch and release" program and settled illegally in the United States. The Christian Science Monitor quoted T.J. Bonner, president of the National Border Patrol Council: "It's an insane policy which encourages OTMs to come into the country illegally, and we shouldn't be shocked that they are coming in record numbers." While most OTMs come from Central and South America, more than 600 of them entered the US in 2004 from "countries of concern"countries that support terrorists.
There is no mistaking the fact that weak immigration policies and practices are contributing to the economic and societal destruction of America, Britain and Canada. Combine these facts with the probability that terrorists are penetrating our porous borders and setting up camp, and we should easily recognize the severity of the immigration issue. This is a serious problem. National security is on the line.
The solution lies beyond politics. The curses immigration has thrust upon the Western world were prophesied in the Bible. The reasons behind the failure of our immigration practices are spiritual. (Published with permission from the Trumpet Magazine). nl406.htm
