"Woe to you lawyers! for you have taken away the key of knowledge: you entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in you hindered." Jesus cursed the Scribes because of their cunning manipulation of the Law to entrap men and justify evil. Aided by the greed and treachery of certain figures in America's past, your whole nation has been trapped, impoverished and enslaved by these lawyers. And the shackles are about to be affixed to your ankles and wrists.

Brethren who have followed our studies in the Revelation 17:12-13, Esau/Edom and the Trail of the Serpent, as well as World Depopulation and Slavery series may like to study the Articles listed above. They provide further evidence as to how the Vatican will control the gold of the world and their relationship with the Black Nobility and international bankers.

These articles also demonstrate that the United States of America is now and has always been a colony of Great Britain and the Khazar Jew, Queen Elizabeth II, is your Queen as she is the Queen of England and Australia. Those prepared to study these resources will discover that ten States of the Union have been under military control for over a century, where America's gold was sent, where your "voluntary" taxes go, and that legally you own none of your "possessions", you merely have right of use because you have purchased a license or permit.

Y2K Franklin Frith who presents Y2K workshops to elected officials and government agencies has revealed plans for mass evacuations and the use of the military. He claims FEMA will take charge of local government agencies when they can no longer cope with Y2K emergencies.

A Michigan State police officer was informed in an emergency management meeting the economic consequences of Y2K are likely to last up to five years with officers being instructed to plan for "total chaos" (WorldNetDaily News, March 5, 1999).

It is also reported that Federal Government employees will receive their January 2000 pay one month early to obligate them for duty (WorldNetDaily News, January 5, 1999).

Depopulation Since the Roe v Wade abortion ruling, over 38 milion unborn American babies have been legally aborted (Jackie Rothenberg, NY Post, March 5, 1999).

Los Angeles A fault covering at least 324 square miles has been discovered directly beneath Los Angeles City (Reuters, Thursday March 4, 1999).

Blasphemy As part of the New Millennium celebrations, the Israeli National Parks Authority has constructed a 240 foot long clear platform two inches below the Sea of Galilee and expects 4 million people will pay three dollars each to "walk on water." Their advertisement says "Jesus Christ did it, and now so can you."


The Word

This-evening we'll speak about the Word or Logos so we'll commence with John 1:1 -- "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

When God commenced His creation and "time" began, the Logos, which is the sum of His thoughts, or concept -- all of God's Attributes -- what He is, was complete. God is not presently thinking or even taking counsel with Himself, and He'll never have another thought. God is omniscient and therefore infallible.

This verse has nothing to do with Jesus Christ. It speaks of the Holy Spirit alone with His thoughts through eternity, starting to unfold Himself through the expression of those thoughts. In His thoughts are Jesus Christ, Adam, Moses, Paul, Luther, you, me, and all the saints there ever will be; in His foreknowledge he knows every one who ever was or will be -- sinner, saved or saint.

Just four thousand years ago, "the Word (or Logos, the concept or fullness of God's Attributes) was expressed as virgin-born flesh called Jesus, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth" (John 1:14).

God's glory, the excellence and majestic dignity of the perfection of deity, the Logos, was manifest in Jesus Christ. Jesus is the glory of God. And like a man's only son, God's whole life was invested in Jesus -- all of the Attributes of Logos. "Of all the sons in the world, this is My Boy, My precious ONLY Son. He's full of grace and truth. My Boy can do no wrong".

Isaiah 40:5 says, "The glory -- majesty and splendor -- of God (the Logos) shall be revealed, and men shall will see the fullness in Messiah -- THUS SAITH THE LORD."

Our ten senses beheld or perceived with admiration the glory of the Logos expressed in the Son.

These verses are usually misinterpreted to make Jesus pre-existent as if He were a second God, but He was no more pre-existent than the remainder of God's Sons -- the true New Testament Church. Jesus was the beginning of God (the Logos) manifesting Himself into His creation -- LESS than 2,000 years ago -- the New Testament saints are the continuation of the same creation (Revelation 3:14). We each express a portion of the Attributes of God, the Logos; in Jesus the fullness of the godhead was expressed bodily in one Man.

Jesus was begotten by the Word of God spoken by Isaiah and Moses, and delivered to Mary by the Angel, Gabriel. Each of us Christians have been begotten the second time by the Word of God signified by the angel, William Branham in visions to John, and expounded to us in these last days (Revelation 1:1; 10:7, etc.).

John 1:18, "No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him."

The Logos or Word is the invisible Holy Spirit visibly expounded in the life of Jesus Christ Who acted-out the nature and character of the fullness of God's Attributes. "The only begotten Son, who is in the heart of the Father, He has declared or explained Him."

Jesus is in the heart of the Father as He is the desires or Logos, the Presence of God expressed in one Man. "And no man has ascended up to heaven, but he who came down from heaven, even the Son of man Who is in heaven" (John 3:13). Jesus was always in heaven as the Logos or Attributes of God. But so are we who are the elect of God because we are a part of the Logos, seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:6; Revelation 5:9-13).

"And without controversy (or by unanimous agreement) great is the mystery of godliness (or Logos): God (the Logos) was manifest (or made visible and realized) in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory" (I Timothy 3:16).

God DECLARED Himself in Jesus, or IN Jesus, the Logos declared Who God is, what His purpose is, and how He plans to accomplish His purpose. Now the Logos is declaring God through every Christian in the measure of their faith and submission to Him.

II Corinthians 5:13-18, "For if we are mad, it is to the glory of God: or if we are sane, it is for your benefit. For the love of Christ compels us to minister; because we understand, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that He died for all, that they who live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him Who died for them, and rose again."

(Paul is explaining why the saints are not ashamed or afraid to preach the Gospel at risk of ridicule and violence from the Jew or imprisonment by the State. They have the revelation they were born dead in sin and trespasses but through the substitutionary death of their Kinsman Redeemer and the new birth they are alive forever more. And forsaking all, they have a zeal to share this revelation that others might be reconciled to God by the same faith.

Paul sees that Jesus Christ was the Logos manifested in flesh, and when that one Man died, all of the elect were crucified in Him and died in Him, because all were foreknown in the Logos (Revelation 13:8). Paul is revealing the perfect justification of God's elect. We were crucified as attributes of the Logos (foreknown) IN Christ on Calvary, and taken from His side in the form of the Holy Spirit AFTER His death. Therefore we are wholly and totally justified for we received the wages of sin in Christ on Calvary. And when God raised Jesus from the grave, we raised in Him and were made to sit together in heavenly places in Christ.

Those who have the revelation and manifest It in their lives are free from condemnation and can never be found guilty, for one can not be condemned to death after he has already paid that penalty.

Listen to Paul: "We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that He (Jesus Christ) might be the firstborn among many brothers. (When we are born-again, God is our Father, and Jesus is our Brother).

Moreover those whom He did predestinate, them He also called: and whom He called, them He also justified: and whom He justified, them He also glorified. (That adds new meaning to the last words of Jesus on the Cross when He said, "It is FINISHED". For ALL the saints were finished. But as individuals we have to realize who we are and separate from the world and the things of the world).

What shall we then say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He Who spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Jesus also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifies.

Who is He that condemns? It is Christ Who died and is risen again, Who is even at the right hand of God, Who also makes intercession for us" (Romans 8:28-33).

"Jesus Christ was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification" (Romans 4:25). So when God raised that Man, and justified Him, He raised us IN Jesus and we too are justified.

Pretend Christians claim we are not perfect, only forgiven. That is a lie of the Devil to cause you to doubt your full salvation and bring you under condemnation. We are not simply forgiven, we are "justified". We are JUST or righteous as if we never sinned in the first place. And we didn't as the husband is responsible for his wife. Our first husband, the nature of Satan, was responsible and the guilt is placed on his account).

II Corinthians 5:16-18, "Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: although we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we Him no more. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, Who has reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ, and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation."

The Logos which was seen by men when it manifested in its fullness behind the vail of the virgin-born flesh of Jesus must now be seen by men manifesting in portion behind the flesh of every born-again Son of God. So people no longer see you or me but they see Christ in us. "For you are dead to the world and the desires of worldly things and your life is hid with Christ in God" (Colossians 3:3). That's why we must live above the reproach of the Word.

Brother Branham had a gift of getting Himself out of the way. Unlike today's TV evangelists who are great showmen, he became so small, the people were not conscious of his presence, and God was able to take pre-eminence and do the mighty works we witnessed. He was our example, being the first mature Son at the Coming or "parousia" of Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 15:23).

I don't want people to see Brother Anthony or Sister Perpetual who ever, we want them to see Christ IN us. I want my life to declare or express God (the Logos) as Jesus declared God. This is what we call having the Token on display.

Colossians 1:25-27, "I am made a minister of the faith and hope of the Gospel, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to expound the Word of God: (Logos, concept or thought in speech); Even the mystery (or revelation) which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to His saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in YOU, the hope of glory."

The mystery is the baptism of the Holy Ghost or new birth which reconciles us to God through faith or understanding bringing us into agreement with His Word (which is His expressed thoughts or Logos). Jesus said, "My Word is Spirit, It is Life" (John 6:63). And when we have the mind or understanding of Christ in us, we no longer live the life we used to live or desire the things we once desired. We are dead to those old worldly things and the Word or Life of God is living in and through us.

Christ, the anointed Word living through us is our hope of glory, for Christ is the glory of God. When that life is on display in us that is the Token on display.

A token is an evidence or proof. It's the sign of a price paid. A coin or ticket is a token and entitlement to the purchase. It's the evidence of a deal or agreement. God gave Noah the token of a rainbow (Genesis 9:12-13, 17). I love to see the rainbow Tokens of God's covenant with the world that He will never again destroy all life by a flood. This time it will be by fire. Aaron's rod that budded was a Token from God (Numbers 17:10). And the red cord hung from Rahab's window in the Jericho wall was the sign of a covenant with Joshua and a type of the thin red line of Christ's blood shed for us (Joshua 2:12).

When God was ready to deliver Israel from their Egyptian bondage, He instructed Moses to tell the people to kill a lamb without spot or blemish and to dip hyssop or common garden weeds into the blood and paint the lintel or cross of their doors with the evidence that the life of the innocent lamb had been sacrificed and to stay in the house, under the blood whilst the Death Angel passed through the land. Exodus 12:13, "And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where you are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt."

That token had to be on display. It was not sufficient to be a secret believer eating the roasted lamb inside the house without the evidence on display on the outside to witness to all the world that the life of an innocent had been substituted. The life is in the blood and when the blood was taken from the lamb and displayed it proved the life of the innocent lamb was accepted by faith as a substitute for the lives of those in the house under the blood.

Israel's lamb was a type of Christ. Today Christians are under the Blood of the real Lamb of God, a kinsman, Whose Life could come back upon the believer because Jesus was a soul. Israel's lambs had a body and mortal spirit but no soul, so when tha animal died, that was the end of it: the body returned to the dust whence it came, and the spirit expired like a charge of electricity gone to ground. But Jesus had a soul and that soul comes back upon the believer in the form of the Holy Spirit.

I Corinthians 6:17 says, "God and the soul that's joined together with God is one Spirit." I like that! It's the fulfillment of Jesus' prayer in the garden of Gethsemane (John 17:21-23). That we might all be in agreement, or one in the Word.

Israel's token was the blood of the lamb, but our Token since the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in the fullness of His Word (Acts 3:21; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7) is not the Blood of Jesus, and a Mediator for ignorance of the Word like the Church Age saints had. Since we now have the fullness of the Word which is Christ, the Logos, our Token is the Life of Christ on display -- all the virtues evidenced in part in the saints of the Church Ages (II Peter 1:1-8).

II Thessalonians 1:3-6, "We are bound to thank God always for you. This is appropriate because your faith grows exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other abounds; So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure: Which is a manifest token (or evidence) of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer: Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you."

Paul declared that the attributes of God's own Life evident in the saints of Thessalonica to be the evidence of their new birth, the proof or Token of their righteousness and acceptance into the Body of Christ which is the kingdom of God, and surety of God's wrath against their persecutors. The Token for a Christian is the Life of Christ on display, the Logos expressed in our oneness with the Word for the hour in which we live.

God is One, not two or three. When God wrote the First Commandment with His Own finger He declared Himself to be the One and only God, "I am the LORD your God, Who has brought you of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me" (Exodus 20:2-3). Israel always says the Shema, "Hear O Israel: The Lord your God in One Lord" (Deuteronomy 6:4; Mark 12:29). So if God is One Lord and One God, He sure ain't three.

This oneness or agreement with God by understanding or faith in His Word is the mind that was in Christ the Logos in you and since His sacrifice on Calvary paid sin's price, its our reconciliation with God or new birth. Since the revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963, we have the fullness of the Word and Christ is no longer a Mediator for ignorance. By faith we accept Christ's substitution for us then coming into agreement with the PRESENT Truth gives the new birth (I John 1:7).

Obedience is better than sacrifice. We can only obey if we are in agreement or oneness in the faith. Acts 2:1 "When the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with ONE mind in ONE place." God recognized this oneness in the new birth of the saints on the fiftieth day of Pentecost.

When they emerged from the Upper Room, somewhat overcome by the anointing, the skeptics accused them of being drunk on new wine. But Peter explained to the assembled crowd what had transpired and proved by the prophets and Psalms that Jesus was their Messiah.

The penny dropped, and catching the revelation they implored, "Men and brethren, what shall we do to be saved, we've killed Messiah?"

Then Peter said to them, 'Repent, and be baptized -- every one of you -- in the Name (singular) of Jesus Christ (not the Titles Father, Son and Holy Ghost) for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

For the promise is unto you (Israelites), and to your children (Hebrews), and to all that are afar off (Gentiles), even as many as the Lord our God shall call (both Israelites and Gentiles). And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.'

Then they that gladly received his Word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers."

Three thousand converts to Christ from two or three hour's impromptu preaching to a multitude of Hebrews and proselytes to the Israelite faith who believed the First Commandment and declared the greatest commandment to be, "Hear O Israel, the Lord your God is One Lord!" They still believed this after their new birth for Peter had proved from the Scriptures that God had made Jesus both Lord and Christ -- NOT a second or third part of some Trinity of gods. Three thousand were born-again, and not one of them believed in a Trinity.

Was the God of Joel a Trinity? How about the God of David, writer of the Psalms? The God of Moses, Isaiah and all the other inspired prophets of the Old Testament, who foretold the advent and Work of Messiah, was He a Trinity? Were these prophets all liars? Or were they deceived by God? Of course not.

According to Isaiah 7:14, "A virgin shall conceive, and shall bear a Son, and shall call His Name Immanuel." Did it happen that way?

Let's read Matthew 1:18-23, "The birth of Jesus Christ was like this: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost." (But I thought God was His Father. Either Holy Ghost is WHAT God IS, and "Father" is the Office or Title God received when His first Son, Adam was formed, or Jesus has two fathers and is illegitimate).

"Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privately so she wouldn't be stoned, because it appeared as if Mary had been in adultery. But while he contemplated these things, the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream saying, 'Joseph, son of David, fear not to take unto you Mary your wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the (God the Father? No), the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a Son, and You shall call His Name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins'.

Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet Isaiah, saying, 'Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His Name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us'."

So Jesus is Emmanuel, or "GOD" with us, not a second, third or any other fraction but ALL of God with us. "Great is the mystery of godliness for God, the Logos, not a second, third or any other person, was manifest in the flesh."

If you don't believe that, you're ignorant. If you can't see the revelation that Jesus is the One and only Person of God manifest in flesh, you're outside Bible faith. There is no such thing as a Trinity. The Trinity is what all pagans have always worshipped, at least since the Flood.

Jesus told the Samaritan woman at the well, "You don't know what you worship: we Jews know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews" (John 4:22). Did the Jews worship a Trinity of gods? No! Did Jesus Christ worship a Trinity of gods? No!

Matthew 5:17-18, "Don't think that I have come to destroy (or annul) the Law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill (- to perform or realize and consummate). For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."

Jesus didn't do away with the Law, He magnified It. (Read the remainder of Chapter 5). No true Jew from Judah to Jesus believed in a Trinity. When the 144,000 elect Israelites are born-again, they will not see Jesus as a second or third person in any Trinity but as the "Lord God Almighty" (Revelation 15:3). By definition there can only be one All-mighty.

Did the great St. Paul believe in a Trinity? Acts 24:14, "But this I confess, that in the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the Law and in the prophets."

Who were his fathers? Moses, Abraham, David, Isaiah, Ezekiel, etc. Not one of them believed in a Trinity. Neither did Paul.

Acts 26:22-23, "Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue to this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come: That Christ should suffer, and that He should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should show Light unto the people, and to the Gentiles."

Did the prophets and Moses say anything about a Trinity? No!

Romans 3:31, "Do we then make void the Law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the Law (and cause It to stand)."

The true Church is "built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ (the Logos) Himself being the chief corner stone" (Ephesians 2:20). Which apostle ever believed in a Trinity of gods? Not one! Any prophet believing that error would fail the test for a prophet for all true prophets must agree with the Word of every previous prophet, because God does not make mistakes or change His mind about His Word.

II Peter 1:16-19, "For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known to you the power and (future parousia) Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty (when He showed us a vision of His second physical or erchomai Coming (Matthew 17:1-5), returning with the resurrected saints and the translated end-time Bride who step out on the ashes of the wicked for the Millennium, following the destruction of all life on earth (Malachi 4:1-3; Isaiah 13:9; II Thessalonians 1:8-9; Revelation 19:20; 20:10, etc).

For Jesus received from God the Father honor and glory, when there came a Voice to Him from the excellent glory, 'This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased'. And this Voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with Him in the holy mount.

(And you had better receive a personal experience like we did. And follow our prophecy as you would follow as light in darkness until the revelation of It's Message becomes one with your soul).

We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto you do well that you take heed, as unto a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke as they were inspired by the Holy Ghost."

Those last two verses tell us that the Word of God comes only to a vindicated prophet of God, and the next chapter warns of the dire consequences of following false prophets, and their fate.

Now, tell me this: What prophet taught God is a trinity? Certainly not Moses or Jesus or Paul, who said, "If an angel from heaven or any man teach contrary to any revelation I have delivered, let him be accursed of God.

How and when did the Trinity come into Christendom? It entered at the First Nicea Council of AD325 where the Roman Catholic church was organized. The President of the Council, the pagan emperor Constantine, invited Christian ministers and laymen to assemble in Nicea to settle differences between the Trinitarian heresy of Athanasius and Unitarian heresy of Arius. History tells us the few Christian ministers who traveled to Nicea went with the express purpose of persuading these to repent and return to the Word. They were not successful and departed before the Council sat.

Now Constantine was a politician who cared less about God and His truth. God is sovereign and known only by personal revelation, not by a vote of the majority. Constantine decided God is a Trinity, organized the Roman Catholic church and the Apostle's Creed (so-called) was written. On his return to Rome, Constantine murdered his wife and eldest son then decided that God was not, after all, a Trinity. And for the remainder of his sinful life, Constantine alternated between these two FALSE doctrines.

Are you able to name me one pagan nation or tribe that has not always worshipped the Trinity? There is none. All pagans worship the Trinity, giving different names to the same gods.

Jeremiah (44) records how the Jew's worship of the Trinity brought the fierce wrath of Almighty God in the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple by Nebuchadnezzar as Israel's worship of these gods had brought about the dispersal of the Ten Northern Tribes.

The Word or Logos is revealed first-hand to a prophet, and God can NEVER change His mind on His Word. If we add to or take from the Word by accepting the interpretations of men we should expect the wrath of God Jesus promised (Revelation 22:18-19). Jesus said that false teaching would be so impersonate the Truth, it would almost deceive the very elected if that were possible (Matthew 24:24).

According to Revelation 13:8, "All that dwell upon the earth shall worship Satan, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world." The people won't suddenly join some obscure group and learn doctrines previously abhorrent to them any more than Peter's 3,000 converts on the Day of Pentecost suddenly accepted Trinitarianism which was abhorrent to them. They will already have the mark of the beast.

The mark of the beast is wisdom against the faith. Trinitarianism is man-made wisdom. There are no points for trying to work-out God intellectually. We must understand His Word, NOT write a bible of our own. His Word must be dwelling in us, producing His Life in our flesh.

These false teachers love money and power. And if we follow their form of worship we are identifying with the world and can expect to receive favor with the world. Jesus said, no man can serve two masters. If we choose to serve the Word, we will be rewarded by God with a revelation of the living Word producing the nature and character of Christ in us.

Paul wrote, "Godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing let us be content. But they who will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition (total loss).

For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. (Having backslid by lusting after the world but they were not lost, being sealed to the day of their redemption, and will be chastened of the Lord).

But you, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto you are also called, and have professed a good profession before many witnesses" (I Timothy 6:6-12).

Mammon, that is, material possessions will perish, but the gold of a Christ-like character endures forever more. Very soon now, the saints will lose their worldly wealth, even the roof over their head. We shall be parted from all of our material possessions and become a hunted and persecuted group following the earthquake that sinks Los Angles. You don't imagine they've built 700 internment camps in the USA and more in Canada to house sinners, do you?

Lay hold of the Word. Sometime soon, that's all we'll have. That Word will be our all-sufficiency. God is only redeeming His Word. What we speak during the time of the manifestation of the Sons of God, God will perform.

The Word or Logos that was with God in the beginning and was later manifest in the flesh of Jesus Christ, is now manifest in His many membered Body. Learn to lay aside your cares and put your trust in Him that He may have the pre-eminence of your life. We must become His Word in our flesh.

I close with a sobering thought for you to ponder. In the last hour, and every hour of every day, over 2,000 people have died of hunger. nl067.txt
