Qaddafi's Daughter files Lawsuits over NATO Campaign
June 7, 2011 Lawyers for Muammar Qaddafi's daughter filed suits Tuesday in Paris and Brussels, claiming war crimes by NATO and the alleged assassination in late April of four of the Libyan leader's relatives. Attorneys for Aisha al-Qaddafi say the complaint does not name a specific defendant, but center on the recent bombing raids in Libya by the Brussels-based military alliance and France's role in them. State prosecutors said officials are assessing whether the case can be admitted, a process that could take weeks.
A NATO-led alliance has launched air strikes on Libya under a UN Security Council resolution aimed to protect civilians from Qaddafi's forces. Tuesday marked the heaviest and most punishing NATO airstrikes yetwith more than 40 daylight attacks. Dominique Atdjian, one of three French attorneys behind both filings, said the Brussels suit accuses NATO for alleged "war crimes."
The Paris complaint, he said, asks judicial authorities in France to "find, identify and punish the perpetrators and the accomplices" involved in the April 30 airstrike by the alliance, that authorities in Tripoli say killed Qaddafi's son Seif al-Arab and three of Qaddafi's grandchildren. The complaint says that one of the grandchildren killed in the compound was Aisha's daughter. . . Full story: foxnews.com
Comment: Cowardly NATO countries that massacre, rape and pillage helpless third world nations lack the backbone to confront the dictatorial 'hidden hand' ruling them from behind the scenes by the power of gold, the power of the press, and the power of loans and credit.
NATO Planes Bomb Tripoli for Hours on End
June 8, 2011 Waves of NATO fighter planes hit the Libyan capital Tuesday with one of the largest bombardments of the city since the Western-led alliance began airstrikes almost three months ago. It was a brazen daylight attack that went on for hours and highlighted how thoroughly the Western alliance controls the skies after wiping out much of Libya's antiaircraft capabilities in the earliest days of the battle. . .
The assaultLibyan officials said at least 60 rockets struck the city, at least 31 people were killed and dozens were injuredalso came after alliance officials had been warning of a planned escalation of their air campaign amid concern in Western nations that the conflict may drag on without an end in sight. [Their concern is monetary, not 'humanitarian' Ed]. The city had been hit hard in recent days, but Tuesday's attack was by far the fiercest. . .
Pro-Kadafi rallies broke out on the streets of the city in the early evening . . . Libyan government officials renewed calls for a cease-fire and negotiations to end the fighting, but only if there were no preconditions, such as Kadafi stepping down from power. . .
"I do not feel the need to convince anyone that this is madness," Musa Ibrahim, a government spokesman, said at a news conference Tuesday night. "You can feel the madness, you hear and you see it every day". . . Full story: truth-out.org
Comment: The world is going insane. Witness the apostate once Christian nations led by "The people against whom the Lord has indignation forever" (Malachi 1:4) in its march to establish their God Lucifer's totalitarian one world government. If you consider the bloody onslaught of the 'City of London' and "the image unto the beast" against the valiant Col. Gadaffi and Libyan patriots defending their sovereign nation against a corrupt world, bear in mind they will soon be joined openly by the world church system against the saints of Jesus Christ.
Swiss Banker unmasks Bilderberg Criminals
June 5, 2011 I have worked for Swiss banks for many years. I was designated as one of the top directors of one of the biggest Swiss banks. During my work I was involved in the payment, in the direct payment in cash to a person who killed the president of a foreign country. I was in the meeting where it was decided to give this cash money to the killer. This gave me dramatic headaches and troubled my conscience. It was not the only case that was really bad but it was the worst. It was a payment instruction on order of a foreign secret service written by hand giving the order to pay a certain amount to a person who killed the top leader of a foreign country. And it was not the only case. We received several such hand written letters coming from foreign secret services giving the order to payout cash from secret accounts to fund revolutions or for the killing of people. I can confirm what John Perkins has written in his book "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man." There really exists just a system and Swiss banks are involved in such cases. . .

Comment: The Bilderberg Group is gathering at the Hotel Suvretta House from June 9-12, 2011 (guardian.co.uk). Swiss People’s Party representative Dominique Baettig has called upon federal authorities to arrest Henry Kissinger as a war criminal if he attends the 2011 Bilderberg conference of global power brokers (bilderberg.org).
The Franklin Cover-up: Child Abuse, Satanism, and Murder in Nebraska: a massive child kidnapping and sex abuse scandal in Nebraska was quashed when the investigative trail lead to the rich, the powerful and the CIA! The State Senator author, John W. DeCamp, was warned by 'ex'-CIA chief William E. Colby to stop pursuing the case because the forces involved were "too powerful."
DeCamp knew Colby personally from his participation as an Army Captain in Colby's CORDS program in Vietnam! The book implies that the CIA has been operating child sex abuse rings as part of its world-wide program to compromise and blackmail the rich and powerful in and out of government!
The Federal Reserve does NOT own any Gold at All
June 2, 2011 Federal Reserve lawyer Scott Alvarez . . . "The Federal Reserve does not own any gold at all . . . we have not owned gold since 1934, um, so we have not engaged in any gold swap. Before 1934 the Federal Reserve did, we did own gold. We turned that over by law to the Treasury and received in return for that gold certificates."
The fact that the Fed owns no gold, nor claims to any gold, means the fundamental value of the dollar lacks any backing besides dollars themselves, not including Fed building and equipment. Dollars are in essence worth a lot less than many people thought, and the Fed is much more impotent in using the prowess of their assets, and conducting monetary policy in general, than many believed. In all, Alvarez's clarification strengthens the case for gold's high dollar value immensely. Full story: goldnews.com
Comment: This confirms Brother Branham's prophecy concerning plans to refinance the US dollar with revalued gold. The Fed. knew in advance this is what will happen, because "they PLANNED it this way," and their "gold certificates" are potentially far more to them valuable than physical gold.
The 9/11 Cover-up and the Black Eagle Trust
June, 28 2008 With an understanding of the economic war being waged on the Soviet Union, the focus needs to turn to reports that on September 11, 1991, President George Bush was responsible for issuing $240 billion dollars in secretive bonds as a part of this attack on the Russian ruble. There are six lines of evidence from eight sources that suggest this was indeed the case. Many of these instances are corroborated with documents available on the Internet, presented by those making the claims.
The bonds sat for ten years, like a ticking time bomb. They had to be settledor cashed in by September 12, 2001. The two firms in the US most likely to be handling them would be Cantor Fitzgerald and Eurobrokersthe two largest government securities firms in the US The federal agency mostly involved in investigating those transactions was the Office of Naval Intelligence. On 9/11, those same three organizations: the two largest government securities brokers and the Office of Naval Intelligence in the US took direct hits.
What happened inside the buildings of the World Trade on September 11 is difficult, but not impossible to discern. The government has put a seal on the testimony gathered by the investigating 9/11 Commission, and instructed government employees to not speak on the matter or suffer severe penalties, but there are a number of personal testimonies posted on the Internet as to what happened in those buildings that day.
Careful reconstruction from those testimonies indicates the deliberate destruction of evidence not only by a targeted assault on the buildings, but also by targeted fires and explosions. In the event that either the hijacking failed, or the buildings were not brought down, the evidence would be destroyed by fires. In addition to the investigative evidence being destroyed, the Federal Register reported that the physical securities held by the brokers in their vaults had been destroyed.
What would be even more revealing would be the actions of the Federal Reserve Bank and the Securities and Exchange Commission on that day, and in the immediate aftermath. As one of many coincidences on 9/11, the Federal Reserve Bank was operating its information system from its remote back-up site rather than it's downtown headquarters. The SEC and Federal Reserve system remained unfazed by the attack. All of their systems continued to operate. The two major security trading firms had their trade data backed up on remote systems. Nevertheless, the Commission for the first time invoked its emergency powers under Securities Exchange Act Section 12(k) and issued several orders to ease certain regulatory restrictions temporarily.
On the first day of the crisis, the SEC lifted 'Rule 15c3-3: Customer ProtectionReserves and Custody of Securities.' The GSCC [Government Securities Clearing Corporation] was thus allowed to substitute other securities for the physical securities destroyed during the attack. '. . . collateral substitutions can and should be made with regard to immediately maturing collateral.' At this point in time, the Federal Reserve and its GSCC had created a settlement environment totally void of controls and reportingwhere it could substitute valid, new government securities for the mature, illegal securities, and not have to record where the original bad securities had come from, or where the new securities wentall because the paper for the primary brokers for US securities had been eliminated. . .

Narcissism and Satan's Eden
May 30, 2011 Thanks to the Global Warming Policy Foundation we can finally See the Light!, and it shines from Germany's green government advisers.
Get Ready. To save the world you must give up the right to vote. To cool the planet, you will forgo the right to have a say in the laws of your land. Why? There are gifted, anointed higher beings out there (who knew?) and they are smarter than the masses. They may not know what an 8-sigma-tree is, but they know how to control the weather.
Through their benevolence you and I will live in a bountiful land, where there will be no more floods or droughts, no more record hot days, or blizzard filled cold ones. Instead life will be perfect. Every asylum seeker shall find what they seek, every climate scientist will have their own suite, and thus and unto infinity, the glorious bliss of perfect weather will descend upon the poor and worthy people of all lands, starting with Germany.
The gifted elite who have the Vision have given up trying to convince or persuade the stupid throngs of doctors, geologists, engineers, lawyers, businesspeople and other heathen fools (like NASA astronauts) who 'don't understand' their control of the atmosphere. Now is the time to force the carbon legislation into being, to take action, and help those who cannot or will not think for themselves! . . Full story: joannenova.com.au

What was Hitler's Unforgivable Sin?
May 11, 2011 As Hitler remarked in his declaration of war following Pearl Harbor, he had delivered Germany from the doubly devastating conditions of the Versailles Treaty and the general world Depression by 1935 while Roosevelt kept mighty America in abject misery with his Federal Reserve starvation policies right to the present time (December, 1941). He stole all the people's gold and then increased its value by 60%. And he refused to do what Lincoln had done before him and what Kennedy would do after him: he refused to issue debt-free currency and rescue the American people from aggravated poverty, degradation and death by starvation.
How could that be? How could Hitler state such a thing? Because it was true. It was simple and it was true. The secret to general and permanent prosperity is for the government of any country to issue debt-free currency in amounts necessary for commerce and growth. That is what the founders had in mind with Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution. . .

Israel must Perish
June 2, 2011 The Morgenthau Plan for Germany was presented to [Jewish President] Franklin Roosevelt by his [Jewish] treasury secretary, Henry Morgenthau, Jr. George Patton said in his diary that the idea was presented to Morgenthau by [the Jew] Dwight D. Eisenhower during a visit to Patton's camp in France a few weeks after D-Day. Harry Dexter White (Weit), a Soviet agent in Morgenthau's Treasury Department whose parents were Lithuanian Jews, designed our post-war genocide of the Germans based on a book written in 1941 by Theodore N. Kaufman entitled 'Germany Must Perish!'
The Morgenthau Plan was the reason millions of Germans, both prisoners of war and German civilians, were slaughtered on Eisenhower's orders in the months and years following World War II. It was the reason German industry was dismantled and taken to the Soviet Union. It was the reason that German children and adults were put through Jewish brainwashing to hate themselves and obey the Jews. It was all in the plan, all based on Kaufman's vicious little book.
I don't like to criticize Jews. It gives them too much power over our minds, by making us think about them, which is what they crave. It must however be done occasionally. We should therefore let them do the work. Roy Arthur Topham up in Canada has come up with a truly brilliant way to do this. He has simply taken Kaufman's book and replaced 'Germany' with 'Israel,' 'Germans' with 'Jews' and 'Nazi' with 'Zionist'. . .
What would have been the reaction of US Jews if it were revealed that all congressional candidates had to sign a pledge to maintain the military superiority of Nazi Germany in the 1930s and '40s? Would we ever have heard the end of it? . . Full story: veteranstoday.com
So here is Roy Arthur Topham's conversion of anti-German lies into anti-Jewish truth. . . Full story: radicalpress.com
Look to the Promise
Ezekiel 18:20, 21, "The soul that sins shall die. . . But if the wicked will turn from all the sins he has committed, and keep all My statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live and not die. None of the transgressions he has committed will be remembered against him: for the righteousness he has done he shall live".
II Peter 3:3-4, 9, "Understand that in the last days scoffers will come, following their own passions, and saying, Where is the promise of His Coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation. . . The Lord is not slow concerning His promised (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming, although it sometimes seems that way; but He is forbearing on your account, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance".
Sin entered the world when Adam redeemed his adulterous wife Eve, taking her sin upon his own shoulders. Eve had played the harlot, bearing Cain by her whoredom and should have been burnt with fire as the Word has said (Leviticus 21:9; Psalm 119:89). Eve was a type of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church, the Great Whore of Revelation 17:5 who has borne a multitude of harlot churches by her whoredoms, and whose end will be the lake of Fire (Revelation 2:22-23; 18:8-9; 19:20; 20:10, 14). Death entered the world when Adam pardoned the sin of the woman he loved, and because of this death passed on to all persons, in that all have sinned (Romans 5:12).
Not only was the original sin not cauterized in the extinction of Eve and the seed of the Serpent that would become her bastard son Cain, but Adam compounded the sin by partaking this secret knowledge from Eve who became his Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil (Genesis 3:6-7) as Satan incarnate in the Serpent was the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and evil to Eve (Genesis 3:1-16; I Timothy 2:9-15). Thus two seeds were in her womb through separate impregnations: the seed of the Serpent that would become Cain who was accursed of God, and the seed of Adam that would become Abel his half-brother.
Eve was so utterly deceived by Satan that although Adam had redeemed her she continued to believe her son Cain was the promised Deliverer begotten by God (Genesis 4:1); she would have borne Jesus but for her impetuous lust to usurp authority and teach her husband what the Lord had not revealed. Eve regarded Cain's half-brother merely the offspring of her husband, and called him Abel, which means 'vanity,' or 'transitory.' Adam was not and could not be deceived on the revealed Word as he was the Son of God and the spoken Word of God (Luke 3:38). By faith he knew that as God's son he was eternal with God and could no more be lost than God; on this basis and fully conscious of the penalty of Genesis 2:17 Adam did not fear but voluntarily stepped over the time line and the Life line to sacrifice his life to redeem Eve. It was revealed that when God redeemed him He would also redeem Eve because through the marriage union the two were one flesh (Genesis 2:18-24). Thus Adam became the Tree of Life to his wife.
In dying for his wife Adam was a perfect type of the Logos of God expressed in the virgin-born flesh of Jesus Christthoroughly rejected by Israelites, self-styled Jews, Judaeo-Roman Catholics who try to earn salvation by "good works," Jehovah Witnesses (so-called), and Muslimswho surrendered His sinless Life as KINSMAN Redeemer for His wife, the Church!
Romans 3:21-24, "Now [under the dispensation of the Gospel] apart from the works of the Law, the righteousness [which proceeds from] God has been made manifest [in the Life of Christ, exhibiting "justifying" righteousness able to be imparted and imputed to the believer for his pardon and acceptance with God (Matthew 5:48)], attested by the Law and the Prophets (Isaiah 28:16; Habakkuk 2:4; Leviticus 16) even the righteousness [inherent in] God through faith in Jesus Messiah for all who believe: for there is no distinction [between Israelites or Gentiles of Adam's race]: for all are sinners, and fall short of the glory of God; being justified freely by His grace through the ransom Christ Jesus has provided".
Today, so long as you hold the Token of the Life of Christ over your non-elect husband or wife and loved ones and they preserve that atmosphere they will be sanctified. So long as they are sanctified their names will remain in the Book of Life and they will be granted into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment. If their names were not in the Lamb's Book of Life from the foundation of the world they are not elect. But if they are born of Adam's race the life you present by your presence may determine their salvation.
Unlike her husband, Eve was not a spoken Word of God but a byproduct taken from Adam's side years after creation was finished. She could therefore be deceived on the Word, and once she stepped from behind the covering of his headship she fell by the pride of life, the lust of the eye and the lust of the flesh, desiring to "be as god, knowing good and evil" and usurped authority over her husband by teaching him Satan's interpretation of Genesis 1:28 as if she were god. Eve's sin was to hybridize God's Word with Satan's wisdom which led her to hybridize the physical seed of the Serpent, the father of Cain who is not on the Book of Life and neither are his kin. This caused the fall, and by redeeming Eve, Adam forfeited our dominion of earth to Satan and committed the whole creation to sin and death. Hence we are all "brought forth in iniquity, conceived in sin, and come into the world speaking lies" (Psalm 51:5-6).
The evidence of original sin is on the flesh of every one born of woman: your navel bears testimony to your birth from Eve, Adam's Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Adam and Eve did not have an umbilical cord, and the glorified body represented by your theophany will not be born of woman and will not have a navel.
If you look for perfection in your flesh and mortal spirit you will see sin working corruption. You must look with the eyes of faith to Abraham's blessing and the promise of new birth that works from the inside, that is, within your soul. The outside man of flesh and the spirit that operates that body is unredeemed sin, which is why you do not try to perfect the body. Paul admonished Timothy to "feed the Brethren in the Words of faith and of good doctrine, which you have followed. But shun profane and old wives' fables, and train yourself for godliness, for bodily exercise is of little benefit: but godliness is beneficial in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the Life to come".
The Bible certainly promotes aspirations contrary to Hollywood, entertainment, the media, fashions, sport and advertising. God does not delight in external beauty and adornment; He desires a Christ-like character radiating from the unseen inner man of the soul, bringing the outer man under submission until he becomes a written epistle of the present Truth, known and read of all men. What we call the Token of the Life of Christ on display.
Every human being even the Serpent's seed hybrids consist of a body, spirit and soul. Animals have a body and spirit but no soul that can return; hence we may kill and eat. Because of the Fall you were born with the nature of this world, which is the nature of Satan who is the god of this world, ruling the desires of your body, soul and spirit.
When Paul was instructing us how to differentiate body, soul and spirit he wrote, "The Law is Spiritual: but I am carnal, under sin's control. I do not understand my own actions. I really want to do what is right, but I do the very thing that I hate. Now if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the Law is good. So then it is no longer I that do it, but sin which dwells within me. For I know that nothing good dwells within me, that is in my flesh. I can will what is right; but I cannot do it. . . For I delight in the Law of God in my inmost self, that is in my soul: but I see in my natural members another law battling against the principles of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin which dwells in my members. Wretched man that I am! Who will rescue me from this body doomed to death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then I myself serve the Law of God with the mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin" (Romans 7:14-18, 22-25).
This is confirmed by Hebrews 10:2, "When the worshipper lays his hands on the head of His KINSMAN Redeemer, rather than the substitutionary lamb, his sins are forever purged by that one offering of faith, as witnessed by the baptism with the Holy Ghost, and should have no more desire for sin [or unbelief]." Your soul had to die to the love of the world and be reborn to the love of God. Now your soul can never die and Eternal Life is living in that body of sin, as Paul explained, joined to God by the umbilical cord of your theophany which is the glorified appearance of your being already in His presence (Romans 8:30; Ephesians 2:6; Revelation 5:8).
The revealed Word of God for your daythe present Truth, what Jesus is doing nowdiscerns the thoughts and intents of the heart and distinguishes the senses of your corruptible flesh from the senses of your mortal spirit, and those from the sense of our soul (Hebrews 4:12). Your body has five sensessight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell, and your mortal spirit has five sensesconscience reasoning, memory, affection and imagination. These senses enable you to contact the physical world like the other animals in God's kingdom. When your spirit breaks up it goes to ground like an electrical current and your body dies and will return to the dust. But that body was only a temporary house that enabled you to communicate with this material world and express the nature of your soul; whether that of the Spirit of your Heavenly Father, or the spirit of the god of this world. Your mortal spirit was the power that operated your mind and body. You, your soul, lived in the heart of that body, and you have one sense with which to contact your Heavenly Fatherfaithor unbelief by which you may identify with His adversary, according to the exercise of your free moral agency. When the body and spirit die, you have made your last decision and live on in the destination determined by the choices you have made in that body, for you are not your body, and you are not your spirit: you are your soul, the part that was made in the image and after the likeness of God (Genesis 1:26). So you can see, there is no such place as purgatory, a control mechanism and money-making racket of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church, and there is no point in praying for the dead who know nothing and whose destiny is established by the decisions they have made and the deeds they have done in the body (Ecclesiastes 9:5).
After you are born-again and as you grow in grace you must bring your mind subject to the revealed Word and every one, Christ in you, the Husband of your soul. Your spirit will then mortify the deeds of the flesh and bring your body subject to the Word. But as the great Saint Paul confessed, there will be constant war between your redeemed soul and the nature of Satan working in your unredeemed flesh and spirit. So judge no man after the flesh, but by the life manifesting through that flesh.
I John 3:9, "Whosoever is born of God does not commit sin; for His Seed [the revealed Word for the hour (Luke 8:1; I Peter 1:22-25; Ephesians 4:30)] remains in Him: and he cannot sin [or disbelieve the revealed Word] because he is born of God." As your soul died (to the love of the world and the things of the world) your flesh must die before it can be perfected. Brother Branham explained, "If the first Adam back there was created without father and mother, the Second Adam was the same thing. And anything less than that wouldn't put Him on equal with him. That's right. The same God, He created a body that He Himself dwelt in" (Shalom, p. 11:72).
We have problems in the flesh because our conception followed the passions of the ten carnal senses of our earthly parents, when it was never God's perfect will for women and men to bring children, like animals, after sexual desire. Had Eve waited for the Lord to reveal how to "be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the Earth" by faith in His Word rather than Satan's carnal wisdom we would never have had to labour against sin for six thousand years. God made man out of the dust of the earth, and in the resurrection He will (Heb.) 'yatsar,' mold the glorified bodies of the sleeping saints from the dust and transform your (s) hundred pounds or (xxl) four hundred pounds of clay into a glorified condition. How can this be? It will be the realization and completion of the faith the Church Age saints possessed in this life, and the manifestation of 'rapturing faith' in "we who are alive and remain . . . for we shall not all sleep, but we will all be transformed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye. . ." (I Thessalonians 4:16-17; I Corinthians 15:51-52).
How can this be? It seems impossible I know, but this will be the manifestation of God's promise and we look away from finite human knowledge to the promise. It has happened before with Enoch, Moses, Elijah, the Old Testament saints, and Jesus Christ Himself. This is the "hope to which you are called . . . the working of His overwhelmingly great power in us who believe. This is the same mighty power which He accomplished in Messiah when He raised Him from the dead," and God will raise the Body as He has raised the Head (Ephesians 1:18-20). God has already brought the sleeping saints with Jesus in His 'parousia' Coming; we are surrounded by "an innumerable company of angels"their theophanies, and being "compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the unbelief which so easily besets us, and run with patience the race that is set before us" (Daniel 7:10; I Thessalonians 4:14; Jude 14; Hebrews 12:1, 22).
We live in the holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of Israel's Pentecostal feast wherein all servile work is forbidden. Whereas during the Church Ages ministers laboured to understand the Scriptures, and conjectured, "I think it means this," or "can it mean that"? But the mystery of God was sealed to the time of the end when Christ would unfold it through the angel to the Seventh Church Age (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4, 7). Brother Branham's ministry "restored the apostolic faith" (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11), and "finished the mystery of God" through the revelation of the Seven Seals, which brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:1-7). All seven Church Ages are fulfilled, the labour is finished, and in this holy convocation we feed on the perfect interpretation of the Word of God.
The Book of Ruth is the exposition of the KINSMAN Redeemer law of Leviticus 25 and explains the journey of Christ's Bride wherein Boaz plays the part of Jesus Messiah our KINSMAN Redeemer, and Ruth types the Church in redemption. Like Ruth the Church has passed through three stages of grace in deciding: Justification by grace through faith in the Sardis Church Age to which Martin Luther was the angel; serving to enter sanctification in the Philadelphian Church Age to which John Wesley was the angel; resting through the Laodicean Church Age while Christ did the work of our Kinsman Redeemer before the elders, fulfilling Revelation 4 and 5 which Brother Branham called the Breach between the Church Ages and the Seals, and rewarded: the full redemption the Church in glorified flesh at the close of the present holy convocation.
All we need do in this holy convocation is to live with the Token of the Life of Christ on display and dig into His Word for a deeper personal relationship in unity with Him. We are not called to feign visions or photograph imaginary Shekinahs, which is sign-seeking play church without faith, bringing reproach on the Word and mocking the sovereignty of God. Satan will delight in showing you visions and strange photographic effects. Jesus is not a showman; when God shows a vision or sign it is for a specific purpose. Eve became impatient to see, taste, touch, smell or hear what she could 'do' to "be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the Earth": her presumption brought death, disease, corruption, every gray hair, every tear, and all evil there has been or will ever be. If you want to perfect something in your life, let it be your faith in the promise of God 'doing' and a closer walk thereby, remembering God veils Himself in simplicity and reveals Himself in humility.
The Bible is the mind of God expressed in W_O_R_D form. The Word is God in a form we can receive by faith. Faith places His mind in you by a clear understanding of His Word. God said, "A virgin shall conceive, and bear a Son, and you shall call His Name Immanuel" (Isaiah 7:14). This prophecy sat in the Book for over seven hundred years but God's Word did not go stale and the virgin bore "God with us" in the season foretold by the other prophets. Likewise the faith of the saints who have fallen asleep over the past two thousand years will raise and glorify their bodies in the designated decreed season and time, for the power of their faith in the Word of promise has not diminished in two millennia.
God can change a situation by your faith. "The prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he has committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. Therefore confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous man has great power in its effects" (James 5:15-16). You can exercise faith in behalf of others too young, too old, too sick or too ignorant to have faith of their own, or in seemingly impossible circumstances such as those of our Brethren enduring a pre-end of dispensation 'squeeze' in Iran. We each have a different measure of faith, and those with an abundant faith are called to pray for others. As a Christian the Lord has granted you great authority through prayer in His Name. But if you are not living above the reproach of the Word, Satan will laugh at your prayer. However when the token is on display, Satan will tremble and demons will scatter when you speak because God has promised to heed that prayer (John 15:4-8).
"For though we live in a body of flesh, we do not war with carnal weapons [like our adversaries]: for the weapons of our warfare are not worldly but have Divine power to pull down strongholds, inasmuch as we tear down reasonings and every intellectual bulwark [of the fixed thoughts of Hellenistic or Judaic philosophy and denominational reasonings] erected against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought [which is otherwise opposed] captive in subjection to Christ; being ready to punish every failure in obedience when your obedience is fulfilled" (II Corinthians 10:3-6).
Brother Branham called Corinthians I and II the "Book of correction" and it was only in their return to apostolic obedience that Paul expected the completion of their submission to Christ. Upon that obedience he would exercise his disciplinary power on the Judaic corrupters who might persist in opposing his authority, wherein he would be compelled to break the bounds of "the gentle and forgiving character of Christ" (verse 1). We can expect His actions would have been in the power of the Spirit as in the 'third pull' we will exercise during the manifestation of the Sons of God and which the two Hebrew prophets will deploy against denominational and Judaic corrupters, and "anyone who would harm them" during the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week.
We will close with three Scriptures:
II Corinthians 1:20, "All the promises of God in Christ find their Yes in Him. For this reason we say through Him "Amen" to God, for His glory through us".
II Peter 1:2-4, "Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, whose divine power has bestowed on us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of He who has called us to His own glory and excellence: by which He has granted to us His great and precious promised blessings by means of which you might become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through passion".
I John 2:25, "And this is the promise He has promised us, eternal Life". nl688.htm
