Bible Believers' Newsletter 515
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In this Newsletter we will consider the Fall, and what really happened in the Garden of Eden.
You know, the Lord placed everyone in Adam's race on free moral agency and on a level playing fieldeven with the seed of the Serpent who are far wiser in the ways of this world than the children of Light, since they are the vicarious children of the god of this evil age. God is no respecter of persons. He gave Moses, Isaiah and Jeremiah, Jesus, Paul and Brother Branham no special privileges in this respect. We must each confront and overcome adversity, sinner or saint.
The Lord does not place His saints on a flowery bed of ease, for "the wicked prosper and all who deal very treacherously are happy," while "all who will live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution." If anything, the sinner has the advantage in this world. His material or sensual blessings are seen in the here and now and make no call on faith, but he is a creature of time, while we are even now seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
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.
Then cheer, my brothers cheer, our trials will soon be o'er
Our loved ones we shall meet, shall meet upon the golden shore
We're pilgrims and we're strangers here, we're seeking a city to come
The life-boat soon is coming to gather the Jewels home.
What FBI Whistle-Blower Sibel Edmonds found in Translation
February 17, 2008 Former FBI translator turned whistle-blower tells a chilling story of corruption at Washington's highest levelssale of nuclear secrets, shielding of terrorist suspects, illegal arms transfers, narcotics trafficking, money laundering, espionage. She may be a first-rate fabulist, but Ms. Edmonds' account is full of dates, places and names.
And if she is to be believed, a treasonous plot to embed moles in American military and nuclear installations and pass sensitive intelligence to Israeli, Pakistani and Turkish sources was facilitated by figures in the upper echelons of the State and Defense Departments. Her charges could be easily confirmed or dismissed if classified government documents were made available to investigators. But Congress has refused to act, and the Justice Department has shrouded Ms. Edmonds' case in the state-secrets privilege. . .
After five years of thwarted legal challenges and fruitless attempts to launch a congressional investigation, Sibel Edmonds is telling her story, though her defiance could land her in jail. . . Full story: dallasnews.com
More Evidence of Pre-9 /11 Inside Trading: Follow the Money? God forbid
February 10, 2008 Why was the cashing out of billions of dollars just before 9/11 never investigated? Had an investigation been done into the crime of failing to file the "currency transaction reports" in August 2001, then we would know who made the cash withdrawals in $100 bills amounting to the $5 billion surge.
When reviewing the record of July and August of 2001, Bill Bergman noticed a $5 billion surge in the currency component of the M1 money supply—the third largest such increase since 1947. Bergman asked about this anomaly—and was removed from his investigative duties. . . As a financial market analyst for the Federal Reserve, he was assigned in 2003 to review the record of July and August of 2001. He noticed an unusual surge in the currency component of the M1 money supply (cash circulating outside of banks) during that period. The surge totaled over $5 billion above the norm for a two-month increase.
The increase in August alone was the third largest single monthly increase since 1947, even after a significantly above-average month in July. . . Bergman's supervisor instructed him to follow up on an unanswered question he had raised pertaining to an August 2, 2001 letter from the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve to the 12 Reserve Banks. This letter urged scrutiny of suspicious activity reports. Bergman learned of the pervasiveness of the warnings of the 9/11 attacks, and wondered how thoroughly these warnings had permeated the financial system.
In this capacity as Federal Reserve investigative point-man, and with his money-laundering portfolio being guided by his supervisor's directive, he asked the Board why they had issued their August 2, 2001 directive, and whether this related to any heightened intelligence of a terrorist threat. His position was then eliminated, and a crucial investigation was terminated before it could even begin. . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Holocaust™ Reparations Bill in Congress could cost Americans $200 BILLION
The Holocaust Insurance Accountability Act of 2007 (H.R. 1746) is now snaking its way thru committees, in preparation for what is to quite possibly be a huge extortion of money from the American tax payer.
Copied from the bill is this:
Experts estimate that the value in 2006 of unpaid life, annuity, endowment, and dowry insurance theft from European Jewry from the Holocaust and its aftermath ranges between $17,000,000,000 and $200,000,000,000. . . This act will give Holocaust™ survivors, heirs, dependents, and others, access to US courts for the purpose of entertaining legal actions against insurance companies, even when those claims have already been denied by European Courts. . . .

What You didn't know about this Woman
In reality Benazir Bhutto's status as an icon of freedom and democracy was an illusion. "[H]er two periods in office as prime minister (1988-90 and 1993-96) were marked by economic collapse, suppression of the press, human rights abuses and appalling corruption," wrote the National Review (September 20, 2007). Her first administration was accused of "having one of the world's worst records of custodial deaths, killings and torture," said the Observer (December 30, 2007).
During her second term, Transparency International called Pakistan the second-most corrupt country in the world. Four countries have launched criminal investigations into the various bank accounts maintained by Bhutto and her husband (nicknamed "Mr. 10 Percent" after how much he routinely skimmed off government contractsamounting to somewhere around $1.5 billion). Strong evidence points to her having ordered the highly suspicious murder of her brother in 1996 after he challenged her leadership of the Pakistan's People's Party, of which she had declared herself "president for life."
Under her leadership, Islamism flourished. Under-funded state schools opened the door for the rise of radical religious schools. Islamists milked their favorite recruiting tool for all they could. . . This is the woman the [US] State Department pressured to return home from exile to reclaim power . . . It exposes America's marriage to an idea that continues to underpin the "war on terror" long after it has proven to be disastrously false. . . Full story: thetrumpet.com

Mr. Lincoln the Infidel
Just as, over the years, we have all been treated to the ethereal fables of Mr. Lincoln as the "great emancipator" of blacks, so have also been treated to many stories about his supposed Christian faith. The problem with all of this is the most patriotic and conservative folks have bought into this hook, line, and sinker. I talked several years ago with a conservative man who informed me that Lincoln "got saved" in the White House. I asked him for some evidence and then sought to go a little into the true nature of Lincoln's character. At that point, he informed me that he "didn't have time for all this." Conversation ended. He had no evidence to back up what he said and I had just punctured the aura of secular holiness that surrounded his secular saint, and he wasn't happy with that. He really didn't want to be confronted with any facts that might force him to change his opinion. . .

This Medication may cause You to think for Yourself
Warning: As a nurse I am shattering the myth of modern medicine. Medical protocol is determined by what's most profitable, which means "managing" diseases with medication rather than curing them.
Since graduating with honors in 1990 from one of the top 10 nursing schools in the US, I have learned the inside truth about Western Medicinea truth that most doctors and nurses are totally unaware of. Like myself they chose their profession with good intentions, believing it was valiant, but this is a powerful deception hiding a villainous truth. . .

The Original Sin
There were many trees in the Garden of Eden, including the tree of Life and the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. The Fall was not caused by eating natural fruit, which was permitted, and nothing is recorded in Genesis 3 about eating an apple; we read only about partaking of fruit of the tree of Knowledge. Therefore, it is important for us to know who and what the tree of Knowledge was.
In Genesis 3:7 we read, "And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked: and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves skirts." Something terrible had happened. Satan's promise was half fulfilled but not quite as expected; they had developed a self consciousness of their nakedness and of the guilt of their genitalia, which hitherto had been public but which they now considered private and sought to hide from each another, and from the Lord. You will notice, they did not blindfold their eyes or cover their mouth, but veiled their guilty reproductive organs that instead of bringing life, introduced death into the world. Guilt-conscious, their intimate relationship with God is replaced by distrustful, selfish, servile fear, as the first common act of sin passes over to a second, and they seek to hide themselves and their sin amongst the trees of the garden.
Genesis 3 portrays the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life. Every man and woman understands temptation of the senses, so Eve's admission, "the serpent beguiled me, and I did eat" should be understood by every adult person. When a girl or a boy is entrapped and beguiled, we know it was not an ice-cream or apple they ate.
The apostle Paul certainly knew what happened in the Garden of Eden. Otherwise he could not have admonished the Corinthian church: "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his craftiness, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ" (II Corinthians 11:3). In view of the Fall, the apostle writes further, "And Adam was not deceived, but the woman, being deceived, was in the transgression" (I Timothy 2:14).
Directly after it happened, the Lord God told Eve, "I will greatly multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children. . ." (Genesis 3:16). This statement tells us what really happened. It was not meals she was to eat in pain as one might suppose had the transgression been epicurean; and neither Adam nor yet any woman has conceived by eating fruit. God knew what took place, and where punishment should be pronounced. Therefore as a memorial of the original sin, and under normal circumstances, women give birth in pain. They don't suffer toothache at mealtimes. Proverbs 30:18-20, "Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eats, and wipes her orifice, and says I have done no wickedness."
Birth-pains remind women of the original sin, "for the woman being deceived was in the transgression," and lost her co-equality with man (Genesis 3:16; I Timothy 2:8-15). Under the Old Covenant, circumcision in the male organ of generation recognized that because of the Fall corruption is inherently transmitted by our sexual conception (Psalm 51:5), and symbolized an Israelite man's severance from nature's defilement to a state of consecrated fellowship with God. Hereby an unmarried Israelite woman came under the Covenant by the token of her father, and a married woman came under the token of her husband (I Corinthians 11:3-16; Ephesians 5:20-23). So "God's holy One, whose flesh should not see corruption" was "born of a virgin" (Psalm 16:10; Isaiah 7:14). When God made a Covenant with Abraham and his natural seed He required circumcision, "This is My covenant, which you shall keep, between Me and you and your seed after you: every male child among you shall be circumcised" (Genesis 17:10-14). Every soul who refused circumcision was "cut off" from His people because he did not have the token of the Covenant.
In Jeremiah 9:24-25 we read, "THUS SAITH THE LORD, the days are coming when I will punish all these circumcised with the uncircumcised; Egypt, Judah, Edom, the children of Ammon, Moab, and the Semitic Arabs who dwell in the desert and cut the edge of their beard: for all these nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in the heart." Three classes are distinguished here, the Covenant people, their Serpent seed half brothers, their Semitic Ammonite, Moabite and Arabian cousins, and Gentile Egyptians. All of these nations were uncircumcised in spite of a circumcision in the flesh, (which from Israel's standpoint was an unjustifiable imitation of the sacred sign of the Covenant), while the whole house of Israel, including Judah, is uncircumcised in heart and ears and essentially no different from the heathen nations without the token. From this it is evident that the only means of escape from the threatened punishment is a living and truly productive knowledge of the Lord (Jeremiah 9:22-23).
In Genesis 17:12-13 and Exodus 12:43-49 we learn that every Israelite and every Gentile of Adam's race must have the token of circumcision in the flesh before he can partake of the Passover, which the Serpent's seed are forbidden to eat. However John Hyrcanus compelled them to "circumcise their genitals, and make use of the laws of the Jews; and they were so desirous of living in the country of their forefathers, that they submitted to the use of circumcision, (25) and of the rest of the Jewish ways of living; at which time therefore this befell them, that they were hereafter no other than Jews" (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, XIII, 9:1).
(Note 25: "This account of the Idumeans admitting circumcision, and the entire Jewish law, from this time, or from the days of Hyrcanus, is confirmed by their entire history afterward (Antiquities XIV, 8:1; XV, 7:9; Wars of the Jews, II, 3:1; IV, 4:5). This, in the opinion of Josephus, made them proselytes of justice, or entire Jews, as here and elsewhere (Antiquities, XIV, 8:1). However, Antigonus, the enemy of Herod, though Herod were derived from such a proselyte of justice for several generations, will allow him to be no more than a half Jew (XV, 15:2). But still, take out of Dean Prideaux, at the year 129, the words of Ammouius, a grammarian, which fully confirm this account of the Idumeans in Josephus: "The Jews," says he, are such by nature, and from the beginning, whilst the Idumeans were not Jews from the beginning, but Phoenicians and Syrians; but being afterward subdued by the Jews, and compelled to be circumcised, and to unite into one nation, and be subject to the same laws, they were called Jews." Dio also says, as the Dean there quotes him, from Book XXXVI, p. 37, "That country is called Judea, and the people Jews; and this name is given also to as many others as embrace their religion, though of other nations." But then upon what foundation so good a governor as Hyrcanus took upon him to compel those Idumeans either to become Jews, or to leave the country, deserves great consideration. I suppose it was because they had long ago been driven out of the land of Edom, and had seized on and possessed the tribe of Simeon, and all the southern parts of the tribe of Judah, which was the peculiar inheritance of the worshippers of the true God without idolatry, as the reader may learn from Reland, Palestine, Part I, p. 154, 305; and from Prideaux, at the years 140 and 165).
Before one is fit to celebrate our "Passover," which is to partake the Lord's Supper and footwashing under the New Covenant, he or she must be circumcisednot in the fleshbut in heart and ears, and our Token, unlike that of the Israelite, must be on display for it is the Life of Christ generated by the Spirit of Christ within the individual believer. Whereas the Israelite woman was "saved" under the Token of her father or her husband, "the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the Token of his Christian wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified under the Token of her Christian husband" (I Corinthians, 7:11-19).
There is no shame in displaying our Token, and our Token is not the Token unless it is on public display. Now the soul that refuses the Message of God's Prophet in this day is "cut off" and "shall be destroyed from among the people" (Malachi 4:6; Acts 3:23; Revelation 22:17-19). This is so because since the Seven Seals are revealed, Christ is no longer a Mediator for ignorance, and without this Message he is "uncircumcised in heart and ears" and cannot have the Token, which is the new birth by the Fullness of the Word, aside from which he cannot be restored to fellowship with our Lord Jesus Christ who is the Word (Matthew 17:11; Acts 3:21-23; I Corinthians 13:10; John 17:20-26).
The Lord God pronounced judgment on the serpent for his wickedness and said, "Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all cattle and every beast of the field; upon your belly you shall go, and eat dust all the days of your life" (Genesis 3:14). Up to that time, the serpent walked upright, else the statement "upon your belly you shall go" would make no sense (Ezekiel 28:13-14).
Most important is the following verse, "And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel." According to the testimony of the Lord God, there would be two different seeds. He spoke of the seed of the serpent, and also of its archenemy, both seeds would come through the woman. In Scripture, seed speaks of offspring, and there were in Eve's womb two different seeds as there are two different seeds in the church.
Satan cannot beget nor can he create. He is a sexless, fallen spirit-being. Therefore he had to make use of the beast which was closest to man and could even speak. Only after the curse, did the serpent lose its upright human form and become a reptile.
Genesis three records the conversation between the serpent and Eve. It began with the well-known question, "Has God said?" The devil always uses the same approach: planting doubts about God's Word. Thus he misconstrued it, and entangled Eve. "You shall not surely die. . . Your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." Uplifted at the prospect of teaching her husband the secret knowledge of sexhow they might fulfill God's Command to "multiply and fill the earth," Eve fell for Satan's lie. What benefit was this knowledge of good and evil that separated them from God's Presence? Since that time the eyes of each one of us have been opened to know good and evil whereby we are accountable to God (Romans 5:12-14).
The human attributes are found in the genes which actually lie in the chromosomes inherited through begetting in the sex act. In this way, Satan was able to inject his nature vicariously through the serpent into the human race in Cain and his lineage. Eve's transgression caused Adam to forfeit our dominion over earth to death. As we are conceived according to Satan's worldly wisdom, we are born with a nature of this world, which is the nature of the god of this evil age. Therefore the Redeemer had to come into human flesh "That through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the Devil, and deliver them who, through fear of death, were all their lifetime subject to bondage" (Hebrews 2:14-15). Conquering Satan and death, and rising the third day, Jesus announced victoriously, "I have the keys of death and hell" (Revelation 1:18).
God's commandment was, "Be fruitful, and multiply" (Genesis 1:28), so He instituted marriage and joined the first pair together. The tragedy lies in the breaking of this first marriage, when Eve listened to one she knew to be inspired by Satan, and in correcting him made God's prohibition even stronger by adding, "neither shall you touch the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil," which is Satan. Hereby she usurped authority over her husband, who was the spoken Word of God. Every species was to bring forth after his own kind, but in Eve's womb was a creature, cross-bred from Satan through the serpent, and not in the original creation. Whatever does not derive from His thoughts can never submit to the Word of God, which is His thoughts expressed. Eve then gave herself to Adam.
Adam knew Eve was no more a virgin, and although she should have been burnt as says the law (which is forever written in heaven), he was not deceived, but he loved her and quickly took her to himself. Eve was dying, having crossed the Word from eternity into time but as a son of God Adam knew he could no more be lost than God can be lost. He also knew that Eve was part of him and if he joined her in death, God must somehow redeem him, so in dying he would 'save' Eve. A perfect type of Christ.
Thus, the Fall took place: Eve gave herself to the serpent, and then had her first relation with Adam. From both unions, which happened in quick succession, children were born: Cain and Abel.
In this day, 'twins' are born of different fathers. The best-known cases happened in Sweden and France. In Stockholm, when Mrs. Bjoerlen gave birth on the same day to a black, and to a blond blue-eyed baby, her husband refused to take financial responsibility for the child which clearly was not his. In the trial Mrs. Bjoerlen admitted to having a black lover. On the same day she had known both men. In France, a Mrs. Duval also gave birth to a white and a black child, and 26 year old Marseilles prostitute, Yvette Landru, gave birth to one white, one Negro, and one Chinese. Medical records are replete with cases of superfetation in humans, where a woman with multiple ova is fertilized by sperm of separate insemination. The offspring are not truly twins but half-brothers or half-sisters. True twins result from simultaneous fertilization of one ovum by two sperm.
Whoever reads Genesis 3:15 carefully, will see the Lord God had spoken of the two seeds or offspring right after the Fall. So from the very beginning, there were these two lineages: the ungodly line of Cain and the godly line found in Seth.
Not once is Cain mentioned in the genealogies of Adam in the Old or the New Testament. Not one time is Adam called the father of Cain. This is why Adam pronounced his wife "the mother of all living": never is it suggested that he is the father of all living (Genesis 3:20). Had Cain been the first-born son of Adam, he would have had the nature of Adam who was the son of God, and a special place in God's record.
As Eve bore her firstborn, she exclaimed, "I have gotten a man from the Lord" (Genesis 4:1). This must be understood correctly. Eve was NOT declaring Adam was the father of Cain: under Satan's delusion she actually thought Cain was Christ, "the beginning of the creation of God." No other act with Adam is recorded between the births of Cain and Abel. We are simply told, ". . . And she again bore his brother, Abel. And Adam knew his wife again; and she bore a son, and called his name Seth . . ." (Genesis 4:25). Since THREE sons were born from TWO acts by Adam, you know POSITIVELY that ONE of those three was NOT the son of Adam.
The apostle John also knew what happened in the Garden of Eden. He wrote, ". . . not as Cain, who was of that wicked one" (I John 3:12). In this statement Adam could never have been meant. Adam was not the evil one, neither the wicked one, whose son Cain was, according to the written Word of God. The same apostle wrote of the believers, ". . . because you have overcome the wicked one" (I John 2:13, 14). Again Satan is meant in this place as in many other places in the Scripture with this description. In Revelation 20:2, he is called "the dragon, that old serpent, who is the Devil and Satan." In the Gospels Jesus calls the opponent of God "the wicked one." God is altogether good; Satan is just the opposite. In the Lord's Prayer we petition, "Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one" (Matthew 6:13). We now know "the evil one" is the vicarious father of Cain and origin of all ungodly things.
Cain, the first killer and murderer, was full of envy and jealousy; and Satan was a murderer from the beginningnot in heaven, but on earth (John 8:44). Now it behooves us to consider what prompted such envy and jealousy as would cause Cain to murder Abel. It arose from their worship of God. Cain was rejected with his revelation, because he was carnal. Perhaps he thought it was an apple that caused the Fall, and knowing God requires life for life, picked the choicest of his crop, knowing the 'life' would go out of it. But by revelation from God the Bible says Abel knew animal had caused the Fall, and so animal life must be offered.
When the elder saw his 'works' rejected and Abel's sacrifice for which he had not labored, accepted of God, it seemed so unreasonable. And when God told him he would be accepted if by faith he offered the same sacrifice as His vindicated prophet, he felt humiliated. Concealing his pride, Cain asked Abel to expound the faith. Abel was reluctant to explain, fearing for his life, but when Cain prevailed he expounded the 'original sin.' Cain recognized he was not Adam's son, that he had never possessed the birthright, and was nowhere in the genealogy of God, but that if he destroyed Abel, he reasoned there was the possibility of fabricating primogeniture.
Hence, when God exposed Cain's evil and he saw there was no way he could claim Adam's birthright, which is ultimately the restoration to eternal Life in a restored world, he exclaimed, ". . . from Your face I shall be hid; and I will be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that finds me shall slay me" (because intermarriage with his line always procreates the unredeemable serpent seed and further pollutes the human race). So to prevent man from taking vengeance on Cain and his kindred, God placed a mark upon him. That mark is worldly wisdom: reasoning against the faith. According to anthropologists and Brother Branham, the serpent seed were responsible for all inventions and the discovery of all technological principles.
It is absolutely impossible for Cain to have come forth from Adam who was created in the image of the holy God from whom no evil can come. Satan misused the serpent to enter into the human race in this cunning way, and throw it into destruction and death. Thus it was necessary for God to come in human flesh without human male instrumentality to redeem us back from the power of Satan. When all the redeemed receive their full inheritance, we will be placed back into our original ordained position under God to rule over all the earth.
Enoch was the seventh from Adam: Cain was not counted in the genealogy (Jude 14). Abel was killed with no offspring; therefore the record of the genealogy goes through Seth. In this respect, the Word of God is also perfect and enlighteningAdam, Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared, EnochCain is not Adam's seed and is not mentioned (Genesis 5:6-18; Luke 3:38).
The seed of the serpent was just as real as the seed of the woman. If the serpent did not have a seed, then Christ too was a myth. The seed of the serpent was Cain; the promised seed of the woman was Christ. Paul referred to the promised seed, ". . . and to your seed, which is Christ" (Galatians 3:16-19). He is the seed for whom the promise was given. In the Old Testament, we read, "When You shall make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed" (Isaiah 53:10). God's law states that every seed must reproduce after its own kind (Genesis 1:11). So we should recognize not only did the serpent seed produce a physical race of people not on the Book of Life, but it also produces spiritual death in Adam's race, causing names to be removed from the Book of Life.
God hates hybridizingHis Word is Spirit, and it is Life, but when mixed with human reasoning it is no longer His Word and becomes death (John 6:63; Revelation 22:18-19). In Luke 8:11 we read, "The seed is the Word of God." Before Eve could receive the physical seed of the serpent, she first had to receive the perverted word or suggestion of Satan into her mindspiritual serpent seedand reason against the clear instruction of God's seed Word.
In Matthew 13:36-43 the Lord spoke clearly about these diverse spiritual seeds, "He that sows the good seed is the Son of man; the field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom, but the tares are the children of the wicked one." Our lives manifest our faith or understanding. A life lived by the Word is the Word expressedChrist in you, the hope of glory. A life lived by God's Word hybrid into creeds is reasoning against the faith; it is the mark of Cain and of the beast, and is death. Those influenced by the wicked one hardened their hearts, to which Jesus said, "You are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there no truth in him." He did not dispute their claim to be Abraham's seed, nor did he concede that they were also the seed of Isaac and Jacob and therefore Israelites. As we have noted, the majority of Judeans (or Jews) in His day were Edomites. Esau, their progenitor was Abraham's seed but he married into Cain's race and marred his inheritance. Knowing this the Pharisees protested, "We were not born of fornication; we have one father, even God." Jesus said, "If you were Abraham's children you would do the works of Abraham . . . and if God were your father, you would love Me." Since they were deceived on the Word and abode not in the Truth, even those who were in Adam's line physically, were serpent seed SPIRITUALLY, and blotted from the record of life (John 8:37-47; Psalm 69:21-28; Jeremiah 9:24-25).
We must remember that God put "enmity" between the two seeds, "And I will put enmity between . . . your seed and her seed" (Genesis 3:15). With the aid of the serpent, Satan came into the human race to destroy God's order. And the enmity is still there.
Satan perverted God's holy instruction to "multiply and fill the earth," deceiving Eve and coming into human flesh and blood to produce death instead of life. "Man that's born of woman is of few days and full of trouble" (Job 14:1). God required a perfect substitute, so Jesus was born of a virgin without sex, by faith in the spoken Word Seed of God to pay sin's penalty. Hence our second birth is not by woman but by the Man Christ Jesus without sin and without sex, by the spoken seed Word of God.
After Pentecost, Satan returned to pervert the spoken Word seed of God by mixing or hybridizing it with reasoning into creeds and traditions. So long as the seven-sealed Book was closed and the mystery sealed to the time of the end, Christ was in the Office of Mediator, interceding in behalf of the ignorance of God's elect concerning the faith (Daniel 12:4,9; Revelation 10:4,7). Once the last saint predestinated to the Laodicean Church Age had been baptized into the Body, Christ answered the call of the elders, fulfilling Revelation 4, 5, and 10:1-7.
Advancing from the sacrifice altar as the bleeding bloody Lamb and taking the Book of Life, which is the title deed to all He has redeemed, He became Lion, Judge, and King of Kings. Revelation 10:1-6 signifies Christ descending to earth in WORD Form with the Book that was sealed open in His hands to reveal Himself through the ministry of the 'angel' to the Laodicean Church Age before the seventh Trumpet Angel sounds the end of the Gentile Dispensation (I Thessalonians 4:16; I Corinthians 15:52).
You see the Church Age saints cannot be made perfect without us. As the Holy Spirit was waved before God in the first ripe Sheaf of the Lord Jesus Christ, and accepted in that God resurrected Him for the justification of the whole harvest (Romans 4:25), that same Spirit in the Fullness of the Word is to be waved again in the end-time Bride whose acceptance will signal the resurrection of the sleeping saints and build faith for translation grace. The "church" will know nothing of this: God having called out the righteous, both wise and foolish virgin, their end will be a lake of Fire (Leviticus 23:16-21; Matthew 3:12; I Thessalonians 5:1-10; Revelation 19:20; 20:10).
Speaking through His prophets, God promised He would "RESTORE the faith once delivered to the apostolic saints" (Joel 2:25; Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Acts 3:19-21). This is the ministry of the seventh Church Age Messenger, the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6, whose Message is the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16, which is the "midnight cry" heard and heeded by the wise and foolish virgin of Matthew 25:6 and confirmed by the heavenly Voice of Revelation 18:4. This Message is Christ the fullness of the Word "spoken by the mouth of all God's holy prophets since the world began""that which is perfect" or complete (Acts 3:21; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7). It separates Christ's tiny Flock from the hordes of the great whore of Rome and her Protestant harlot daughters, bringing her into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Genesis 49:10; Amos 3:3; Matthew 13:41; Ephesians 1:10; Romans 8:19; II Thessalonians 2:1).
The 'enmity' God placed between the seed of the righteous first and last Adams, and the unrighteous physical seed of Cain and the bastard-born spiritual children of the second Eve, whom Jesus calls "the mother of harlots and abominations on the earth," is extant. Christ's little Flock is marching toward heaven in the rapture, while Satan's mighty world-wide church is marching to Armageddon (Revelation 16:13-16; 17:14).
Revelation 1-3 prophesies the battle that commenced on the day of Pentecost between Christ in His people, and antichrist in his people. These trees that stood in the midst of the Garden have grown together, like Judas and Jesus, as brothers within the framework of the Christian church, so close as would almost deceive the very elect if it were possible. However this is the harvest time, each congregation is bearing the life of the seed that was planted and cannot hide its fruit. Satan's apostate big church is uniting with the apostate smaller churches in order to convert or kill Christ's little Flock. But after a brief and powerful demonstration of the SpiritNOT a public display as it was in Pentecostour little hunted and persecuted group will go to be with Jesus.
As Satan incarnate the beast in the Garden of Eden and led the first Eve to death, when he is cast out of the heavenlies he will evict his demons and incarnate the man of sin, thereafter called the beast, who will lead his followers to perdition. Christ's purpose is to be fulfilled in His Bride. He is that Corn of Wheat that fell to the ground at Calvary in order to reproduce Himself in the many-membered spoken Word seed Bride.
When Jesus was on earth, Satan showed Him all the kingdoms and their glory in this end-time and said, "I will give You all these things if You will fall down and worship me" (Matthew 4:9). Our Redeemer knew that once He overcame, and shed His blood for the redemption of those ordained for eternal Life, the inheritance forfeited by the first Adam would be His. Already the psalmist had said, "Arise, O God, judge the earth; for You shall inherit all nations" (Psalm 82:8; Revelation 11:15).
Of Christ's elect or Spiritual Seed, the apostle Paul wrote, "And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ if so be that we suffer with Him, we may be also glorified together" (Romans 8:17). This will be fulfilled sooner than most (so-called) Christians dare imagine. We are privileged to live in the time when all the mysteries contained in the Holy Scriptures have been revealed, including the original sin in the Garden of Eden. (bb930112.htm) nl515.htm
