It's later than we think. Get away from the forest of fears. There is no fear in love; but perfect lovethe new birthcasts out fear: because fear has within it the thought of punishment. So he who is fearful, has not yet grown into love's complete perfection' (I John 4:18).
"He who overcomes [that's lovethe new birth] shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be My son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death" (Revelation 21:7-8).
I've been reading a book called "DOPE, INC." by the Editors of the Executive Intelligence Reviewavailable from your local library. Its well-supported allegations, will open your eyes to the evil at work in the top echelons of government, banking, and big business. The first chapter's entitled, "The Book That Drove Henry Kissinger Crazy".
I'LL quote the first three paragraphs of this book, "DOPE, INC."
"Thirteen years ago, the first edition of Dope, Inc. was released, Commissioned by anti-drug American Senator Lyndon LaRouche. It was the first book to reveal that the illegal drug cartel was becoming the world's biggest business. "DOPE, INC.", has waged war against every nation in the world to expose the operation; and to reveal the names of the "untouchable" figures who protect the cartel, whom Hollywood media have sold to the public as veritable deities. This book, which has since come out in several foreign-language versions, and a second edition, remains unique.
Its effectiveness is attested to, above all, by the fact that the kingpins of the U.S. branch of the drug cartel, led by Henry Kissinger and the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rithlaunched a years-long effort to silence the authors, starting with LaRouche, who was railroaded to federal prison in late 1988 on trumped-up "conspiracy" charges, and is now fighting in the courts to overturn that travesty of justice.
LaRouche was jailed within days of George Bush's inauguration as President in January 1989; and Bush kept him there, for reasons that include a fear by Bush and his backers of the information contained in this book.
Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, ran the risk of Federal criminal prosecution, as the result of his persistent interference into the conduct of the US Department of Justice, the FBI, and the White House, to stoke-up the government campaign to silence "LaRouche." And so it continues. . .
This book, "DOPE, INC.", quotes banking and trade statistics which prove the narcotics business is doubling every five years. Figures from the US Department of Agriculture, and National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) demonstrate the 1987 US marijuana harvest (US$33,095 million) exceeds all agricultural commodities but Cattle and calves (US$33,829 million).
Marijuana is now America's major crop. China produces most of the world's opium and heroin. The world's largest opium-growing area is the Golden Triangle, where by far the largest acreage is found in China's Yunnan Province. Many hundreds of millions of dollars of gold go directly to the Golden Triangle; hundreds of millions more, absorb and hide the profits of drug traffickersacross the Far East.
Former US Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Commissioner, Harry Anslinger, accused China of producing most of the world's opium and heroin. As early as 1960 the US officially listed Hong Kong as the first of the "principal sources" of heroin seized in the United States; and the Federal Bureau of Narcotics showed its concern by opening a branch office in Hong Kong in 1963. (Dope, Inc., ch 7 and notes).
1950's claims by Anslinger and the US government about Communist China's "twenty-year plan", to finance political activities, and spread addiction' in the United States, have been proven.
The former Editor of "AL AHRAM," (Mohammed Heikel), reported the following conversation between visiting Chinese Prime Minister Chou En-lai and Egyptian President Nasser on June 23, 1965: "Some of them are trying opium, and we are helping them. We're planting the best kinds of poppies, especially for the American soldiers in Vietnam. Do you remember when the West imposed opium on us?" Nasser appeared to be quite disturbed, but Chou continued: "They fought us with opium. And we're going to fight them with their own weapons ... we want them to maintain a large army in Vietnam that will serve us as a hostage, and we wish to demoralize the troops. The effect of this demoralization on the United States will be far greater than anyone can imagine." Nasser thought that Chou might be exaggerating, but Chou's concept was clear. He left no doubt, that this, was his course of action. (The Cairo Documents by Mohammed Hassanein Heikel, Garden City, NY., Doubleday, 1973. pp 306-307).
In 1975, N.Y. City police arrested the managers of a small branch of Chemical Bank in the borough of the Bronx, who'd been accepting the cash flow of the Paul Lucas heroin mob. Lucas was a small-time operator who drew limited supplies from returning Vietnam veterans, Retailing a few million dollars a year in heavily cut heroin and laundering the dirty money through the corrupted branch. When police moved in, they found the bank's entire vault piled ceiling to floor with small bills. The branch was at the limit of its physical capability to handle cash.
What makes these facts so extraordinary, is that the $3 million a year passing through that single branch, clogging vaults, represented barely one-fifth of 1% of N.Y.City's annual drug money flow of $15 billion. (This figure is the 1977 estimate of N.Y. Drug Enforcement Administration officials. It's skyrocketed in recent years). If all the dope traffic in the city went through similar channels, 500 bank branches would be required to handle the volume of cash!
Again, during 1980, Treasury investigators announced a "crackdown" on a group of small Miami banks, which, they said, accepted a large volume of funds over the counter from narcotics traffickers. Eighteen banks were named in hearings before the Senate Banking Committee on June 6, 1980, where Treasury officials bragged of the success of their enforcement operations. But the banks involved had allegedly accepted sums in the magnitude of $1 to $2 million each. Compared to the size of Florida's dope traffic, estimated by the Senate Permanent Investigations Subcommittee to exceed $13 billion, the scale of operations the Treasury says it uncovered is extremely modest. If we assume that this is the dope trade's modus operandi, we are forced to imagine that thousands of banks are involved in this.
Prior to the Senate hearings, the national press was filled with stories about drug money laundering in Florida, citing treasury sources. These articles spoke of teenagers in jeans and T-shirts walking calmly into banks with suitcases full of cash for deposit, and even phoning in advance, at the bank's request, to be sure that sufficient tellers were on hand to count it all.
Lurid as this information is, on closer inspection, it fails to tell us much, about how $200 billion, (the minimum, retail dope dealers take each year off American streets and school corridors), could be hidden from the eyes of the tax and drug enforcement authorities. On the contrary, if it were all so simple, the dope trade would stand out like a sore thumb. Under federal legislation, every bank must file a report with the Internal Revenue Service on every cash deposit in excess of $10,000. Even if the dope traders funneled smaller amounts than $10,000 into their accounts, the sudden buildup of cash in a bank account would immediately arouse the suspicion of bank officials, according to investigator, Robert Potter, IRS Assistant Director for criminal investigation.
Large commercial banks with computerized internal operations employ supersophisticated methods to monitor what happens to their internal cash flow, mainly to prevent embezzlement" (p. 167-168).
"DOPE, INC." is very informative and supported by over 100 pages of Bibliography, references and appendices. Last October President Clinton signed Presidential Decision Directive PDD42, specifically targeting 50 international money laundering centres, mentioned in this book (EIR Economics 15/12/95; The Strategy Feb, 1996, p. 6-7).
My one complaint with Executive Intelligence Review, who compiled this information, is that they confuse the British Monarchy with the crown of the City of London. Like Vatican City State in Italy, the City of London, also known as 'the crown,' is a state within a state. If you'd like to learn more about that, read "Descent into Slavery" by Des Griffin.
Now what is the message in all of this for Christians? Firstly, we see that even as nations we reap what we sow. Secondly, we're near the climax of world history. There is no hope for our country or for the world order. They're rotten to the core. We must choose this day whether to serve God, or mammon.
Run to Christ while there's yet time. Soon they'll say "peace, and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness that that day should overtake you as a thief" (I Thessalonians 5:1-2).
Real and eternal rest, is being in Christ, not keeping a sabbath day. Jesus said, "I and My Father are one in the faith. Come to Me, all that labour and are heavy laden, and i will give you rest, that is, sabbath, through revelation. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find sabbath unto your souls" (Matthew 11:27-29; Hebrews 4).
The New Covenant does not command Christians to observe particular days. Paul says, "One man esteems one day as better than another, while another man esteems all days as sacred. On questions of this nature everyone must obey his own conscience. The fact is, he who observes the day, is trying to honor the Lord". In other words, be sincere; however there are NO 'special holy days' for Christians (Romans 14:5-6).
"Now that you've become acquainted with, and understand and know God, [claiming you have faith], or rather are understood and known by Him, how can you turn back again to the weak and beggarly shadows of the Law? If we really possess the faith or understanding of jesus christ, we have the substance and reality which the law foreshadowed. Faith freed us from the rule of this temporary shadow. Do you now wish to return to the slavery of worthless religion? By your own works trying to find favor with god by what you do or don't do on certain days, months, seasons, or years!!!
IF you have the faith of Jesus Christ, you are born-again, and have already found favor with God. I'm alarmed for you, and fear that my labor in the Gospel on your behalf has been in vain. And that you're not God's elect" (Galatians 4:9-11).
Thus a rigid observance of days is rebuked by Paul. Sabbath days are not named among the necessary requirements of the Gospel. Paul, Peter and the elders and Brethren who met at Jerusalem clarified the fact there is no requirement for Christians to be circumcised, or to keep the Law (Acts 15:1-29).
The Fourth Commandment concerning keeping the sabbath day was not mentioned, because Jesus magnified the Law, and ours is a sabbath for the soul, twenty-four-hours, seven-days (Exodus 20:8-11).
The seventh day sabbath commemorated a deliverance from Egyptian bondage in which Christians have no part (Deuteronomy 5:15). Going under the Law to keep the sabbath, would obligate men to keep the whole Law of Moses (Galatians 3:10-15, 5:3, 9-11; James 2:10).
The Lord completed his redemptive work in his victory over death, hell and the grave, on Sunday, the first day. Christ's special manifestations to his disciples after his resurrection were on the first day of the week. No recognition was given to the seventh day sabbath after the resurrection, by Christ or any apostle. And the outpouring of the Holy Spirit was on the first day of the week. Consequently it's been customary but not mandatory, for Christians to gather for worship on Sunday as a memorial of the resurrection (Matthew 28:1; Mark 16:2; Luke 24:1; John 20:1, 19; I Corinthians 16:1-2).
The first Gospel sermon was preached on the first day, when 3,000 were converted by its Message (Acts 2:1-42). The typology of the Old Covenant makes the first day of the week prominent. The first ripe sheaf of the Pentecostal Harvest typed Jesus Christ and, like Christ, was waved before the lord and accepted on the first day of the week. The Feast of Pentecost, representing the whole harvest of the Gentile Church, was fulfilled on the first day, (Leviticus 23:10-17). So too, is the Feast of Tabernacles, its eighth day being the first day, speaks of eternity, and the new heavens and new earth (Leviticus 23:34-39).
Some time ago we commented on Jonathan Gray's researches into ancient mysteries of the Bible? I was greatly interested to read his archaeological evidence for giants. The giants descended from Cain; we learn from the Bible that after the flood, they were scattered throughout the world. We discovered that much of Gray's information came from an Australian historian, Rex Gilroy, who has evidence of the existence of giants in many parts of Australia.
We contacted Mr. Gilroy, hoping to meet him personally, and see some of these fossils in situ. I respect him for protecting his sites from the unscrupulous who may take advantage of his work for their own gain. And souvenir hunters finding their way to these sites, may vandalize the precious evidence.
This is what happened to Eagle Rock in Sabino Canyon, near Tucson, Arizona. one day William Branham was climbing high in the Canyon, and about noon time, 'Something' attracted him to a big rock, and said, "Lay your hands against that and pray."
He said, "I laid my hands against the rock and looked up towards Heaven and started praying, and I heard a Voice coming out of the top of the rocks. It said, 'What are you leaning against? Over your heart?' I raised back, and looked. And written in the stone in white quartz was, "Eagle". Just exactly what the vision said the next Message would come forth by.
I was so excited I ran home, got a camera, and came back the next day, and took the picture of it. It was still there, written in the rock in white quartz, "eagle".'
God calls His prophets eagles. Brother Branham was the prophet God sent to we Gentiles in these last days.
I have a photograph of that huge boulder, nature split open ages ago, revealing the word "eagle" inside. I've visited that rock myself. Sadly, vandals defaced it, so that there is no longer any evidence of the writing. So I can appreciate why we were unable to come to an arrangement with Rex Gilroy.
However in January I traveled to Tamworth with a brother from the Church. We visited a museum containing thousands of the specimens Rex Gilroy's collected and cataloged. Among the exhibits were plaster casts, also photographs of giant footprints made by men an estimated twelve to twenty feetthat's over six metrestall!
There were also huge stone implements once used by this giant race and something I would never have anticipated: ancient inscriptions in Celtic and Phoenician characters carved into stones, unearthed in many different locations by farmers. Sculpted life-size heads of Isis and Osirus, two of the pagan trinity, and the carved stone head of an ancient Chinese woman have also been plowed up.
Although I don't hold with his ideas concerning evolution, I'd certainly appreciate listening to Mr. Gilroy. I'm sure much of his knowledge would be a witness, and an encouragement to those who are in the faith. radio035.html
