The Criminal Assets Recovery Bill 2001
A proposed Federal law -- would soon allow the Commonwealth Government to immediately confiscate ALL assets of anyone ACCUSED of a "serious" offence.

They would not have to convict or even prosecute you. Government agents would be authorized to seize all of your assets -- your home, car, bank account, jewellery, everything -- at any time. And you and your family would be in the street, without funds to even hire a lawyer to defend yourself against false accusations.
Similar blatantly unconstitutional "asset forfeiture" laws have existed in the USA for more than twenty years. Thousands of innocent middle-class Americans have been instantly stripped of billions of dollars in cash and property, at the flash of a badge.

Charity Told Must Abide by Antidiscrimination Laws
WASHINGTON, July 10 -- The Bush administration declined a request today from the Salvation Army, the nation's largest charity, to exempt religious charities that receive federal money from local laws that bar discrimination against homosexuals. . .
As soon as it became known, lawmakers who could play an important role in the Congressional passage of Mr. Bush's initiative to funnel more federal money to religious groups that provide social services said any such exemption seriously jeopardized the legislation.

U.S. Proxy NATO Provoking WW III in the Balkans
Janes' Intelligence Digest July 3 warns that we are about to see a repeat of the Kosovo slaughter. . . The escalating crisis in the Balkans may prove more serious for Greece than is the Turkish threat. The last remaining pocket of [nominal] Christianity was the Balkans.
NATO headquarters in Brussels has decided to send a peacekeeping force into Macedonia to be called MFOR comprising about 3,000 soldiers -- supposedly to collect weapons from the insurgents. It says it has no plans to take part in fighting. No mention that 4,000 of KFOR's 45,000 Balkans troops are already in Macedonia. MFOR should not expect much of a welcome.

And Just To Let You Know
ISRAEL, July 19, 2001 -- The foreign troops are coming, which was the goal of Oslo to begin with. At Genoa, today, Bush agreed to bring the UN-NATO troops to Israel. Tomorrow he meets the pope to sanctify the end of Israel's hegemony. Tonight three Arabs were murdered by "Jews," which is short for "Shabak." The troops, we will be told, will protect both sides from violent murder. The New World Order arrives in Israel and very soon. Barry Chamish email@example.com
B'nai B'rith Rewrite Old Testament
Australian Jewish News July 13, 2001 -- A Social studies textbook which accused Jews of crucifying Christ will be changed after protests . . .
The offending material appears under the heading "Christianity" and claims that the "Jewish leaders" convinced the Roman Governor Pontius Pilate that Jesus was a danger and were thus permitted by Pilate to crucify Jesus. . .
The publisher's attention was drawn to the offending material by B'nai B'rith Anti-Defamation Commission director of research and public affairs Benseon Apple. . ."It is most unfortunate that high school students using your textbook should be confronted with one of the most unhistorical and offensive claims ever advanced"
(Comment: I should have thought the four Gospels constitute a sound historical basis for this "offensive claim". When Jesus said, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do" He was not speaking of the Roman authority (Luke 23:34).
This "offensive claim" was advanced 2,500 years ago by the prophet Daniel (9:25-26), who foretold the year, month, day and hour when Israel should reject and crucify their Messiah. So whoever Messiah was, past tense, He came on time and was murdered by His own people according to prophecy.
Moses claimed "G-d" (as those who know Him not are wont to refer to Him) insinuated this "offensive claim" to Noah (Genesis 9:27) and later to the Gentile Abram when He renamed him Abraham, meaning "Father of a MULTITUDE of nations" -- Israelite and Gentile of the seed of Adam (Genesis 12:3; 17:1-5). These prophecies could not have come to pass unless Israel first rejected their Messiah and put Him to an open shame as foreshadowed by the Book of Ruth, by King David in Psalm 118:22-23; by Isaiah 52-54; 11:10; 42:1; 49:5-6; Hosea 2-3 and Malachi 1:11-12, etc.,
In Egypt and on Mount Sinai, God established that Israel would slaughter their own Messiah of Whom the Pascal lamb was but a type of their Kinsman Redeemer Atonement. Israel certified the accuracy of God's type and antitype by rejecting God's Covenant in under forty-days to substitute idol worship! As further confirmed by Moses and the Prophets in that Israel's day of Atonement is a mourning for past apostasy and Deicide, not a rejoicing (Leviticus 16; Zechariah 11-13).
B'nai B'rith means "Sons of the Covenant" God made with the blood descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, not with Edomites, Hittites or Canaanites (Genesis 27:38-40). The Covenant can not be observed, nor is it in effect even to blood Israelites wilfully living outside the Promised Land. Such men are NO sons of God's Covenant with Israel.
Deuteronomy 18:20: "The prophet, who shall presume to speak a Word in My Name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die".
Isaiah 8:20: "To the Law and to the testimony; if they speak not according to this Word, it is because there is NO Light in them".
Talmud, (Gittim 57a): "Balaam [Jesus] is raised from the dead and being punished in boiling hot semen. Those who mock the words of the Jewish sages and sin against Israel are boiled in hot excrement". -- Is this a DEFAMATORY "offensive claim" for a "director of research and public affairs" to present? Or is it merely ignorance, arrogant hypocrisy and blasphemy against God, and racial and religious hatred and vilification against those he considers "human cattle" or goyim?)
The LIE is in the Fine Print
BERLIN (Reuters) July 17, 2001 -- "The Holocaust never happened" is the controversial slogan that will be plastered on billboards across Germany this week as part of a fundraising campaign for a Berlin memorial to Jewish victims of the Nazis.
The slogan, which appears over a picture of a serene mountain lake and snow-capped mountain, is intended to "shake up the indifferent and motivate the hesitant," the foundation organizing the campaign said on Tuesday. Denial of the Holocaust is illegal in Germany and punishable with jail.
A much smaller text underneath the statement reveals the campaign's real message: "There are still many people who make this claim. In 20 years there could be even more. . ." Full story: news.excite.com
Historian Irving Denied Appeal
LONDON (AP) July 20, 2001 -- Historian David Irving, who questioned the extent of the Holocaust, on Friday lost his bid to challenge an earlier ruling that branded him an anti-Semitic racist and an apologist for Hitler. . . Irving now faces bankruptcy if he does not quickly pay the first instalment in a legal bill estimated at close to $3 million.

Manipulation of the Gold Market
DALLAS (BUSINESS WIRE) July 19, 2001-- The Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee, based in Dallas, has issued a challenge to Bill O'Reilly, the host of the FOX News top-rated cable news show, The O'Reilly Factor. . .
A lawsuit raising GATA's charges has been filed in U.S. District Court in Boston by GATA consultant Reginald H. Howe against the Bank for International Settlements; Federal Reserve Board Chairman Alan Greenspan; William J. McDonough, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York; bullion banks J. P. Morgan & Co., Chase Manhattan Corp., Citigroup Inc., Goldman Sachs Group Inc., and Deutsche Bank; and Lawrence H. Summers, former Secretary of the Treasury, who by law exercised control of the U.S. Exchange Stabilization Fund, subject only to approval by the President of the United States.
Recently GATA uncovered the most disturbing evidence yet of manipulation of the gold market. In its response to the Howe lawsuit, the Treasury Department denied any involvement in the gold market since 1978. Yet recently released minutes of the January 31, 1995, meeting of the Federal Reserves Federal Open Market Committee, over which Alan Greenspan presided, quoted the Fed's chief counsel, Virgil Mattingly, as referring to "gold swaps" undertaken by the Exchange Stabilization Fund. . .
The people of the United States have entrusted some 261.5 million ounces of their national gold to be held in trust by the Treasury Department, and its disposition is to be determined by Congress. The status of these assets is reported monthly at the Internet site of the Treasury Department's Financial Management Service.
In August 2000, 3,400 tonnes of this gold at the U.S. Mint at West Point, N.Y., was classified as Gold Bullion Reserve. In September 2000, 1,700 tonnes of this gold was reclassified without explanation as Custodial Gold Bullion. In May 2001, all 3,400 tonnes were mysteriously reclassified, this time as Deep Storage Gold, again without explanation. It is unclear whether this gold is still owned by the U.S. government or whether its ownership has passed to other parties without congressional authorization.
The Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee fears that something is amiss with America's gold!
(Comment: Brother Branham said, "With the world church system under her Rome will be controlling, and this image (church system) will be obedient to Rome because Rome controls the gold of the world. Thus all the people have to belong to the world church system or be at the mercy of the elements for they cannot buy or sell without the mark of the beast in the hand or head. . ." An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, page 376:1). Full story: http://www.gata.org/index.html Protocol 22
When King David had established his kingdom, the Lord put it into his heart to build Him a house (I Chronicles 17:1-5). But He told Nathan the prophet that David had too much blood on his hands and must restrict himself to plan and assemble the materials for the Temple that should be constructed by Solomon his son.
So David planned and Solomon built the Lord's Temple at Jerusalem according to the pattern Moses had seen on Mount Sinai. Moses was only able to construct a type of God's revelation, a tent made from animal skins and fabric, timber and ropes, since the whole nation of Israel was living under nomadic subsistence existence in their journey to the Promised Land.
Under Solomon, which means "peace", Israel had rest from her enemies when he built the Temple. Solomon doubled the dimensions of the Tabernacle but he followed God's unchanging pattern as instructed by his prophet father, for God is infallible: His first way of doing things is perfect and can never change. Hence the Church founded on the day of Pentecost is the only Church Jesus established and the only one He recognizes as His Own. Therefore every subsequent Church that is truly Christian will pattern after that Church in every Age.
God knows what He is doing. The faith once delivered to the saints at Pentecost can never change or be amended. He is Alpha and Omega but He is not what was in between -- denominational guesswork. The Word delivered at the beginning was restored at the end by the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 as Jesus and Peter also foretold (Matthew 17:11; Acts 3:21-23).
God's first work is the pattern for every succeeding work. Knowing this if we follow the shadows and types through the Bible we will understand Its promises and recognize the Word in Its season. This banishes uncertainty and establishes faith which is a clear understanding of the revealed Word of the Lord God Who changes not (Hebrews 13:8).
Brother Branham employed this infallible yardstick in seeking the mind of the Lord to discern the identities of the angels to the Seven Church Ages. And recognizing the prophet Paul, the first apostle to the Gentiles was God's unchanging pattern, he knew that the other angels would be those men whose lives and ministries most closely identified with that of Paul.
God never changes His ways. If He wrote with His own finger "there is the one God" (Exodus 20:2-3), and as He is one Lord (Deuteronomy 6:4) the Catholic church was wrong when they adopted Rome's Babylonian Trinity in AD325. And whatever Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches teach, He is still one God and one Lord. And Jesus Christ was Emmanuel or "God with us", not a second, third or any other fraction of God with us.
Peter was correct when he commanded every believer God ever will call to be baptized in the Name (singular) of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38-39; 4:12). And unless you are baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ you have not been baptized in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. It's a revelation, the revelation upon which Jesus told Peter He would build His Church.
It is interesting to read in the Bible how the timber and stones with which Solomon constructed God's Temple were hewn by foreigners in Israel and Serpent's seed people overseen by a levy of forced labor from among the twelve Tribes (I Kings 5; II Chronicles 2:17-18). These workers took three years to cut and dress the timber and to cut, shape, polish and deliver the stones to the Temple site. These stones were gathered from different countries, with some quarried from tunnels deep beneath the limestone underlying the Temple. Each stone was uniquely marked and numbered for its individual place in the building. This shows us the Body of Christ is made up of saints from every tribe and color from Adam's race, each marked and identified by the Seal or baptism with the Holy Ghost for his Age.
Some stones were a peculiar shape but they were each predestinated according to the pattern to be just so. Every stone was already perfect and finished ready to be installed in its individual place in the building, thoroughly tested, inspected and accepted at the time of its delivery to the Temple site.
Every one of these great stones represented a spiritual revelation for they were a type of the antitype of Solomon's Temple, the Body of Christ or Spiritual Church, which is built of living stones (I Peter 2:5). Jesus said, "I will build My Church on the rock of Spiritual revelation of the Word (i.e. faith), and the gates of hell shall not prevail against faith" (Matthew 16:17-18). In type, these stones represent the individual Christians who make up the Body of Christ and their testimony of the Word for the hour in which they were baptized into their position (or dispensation) in the Body of Christ.
There was a different baptism of the Spirit in each Age for "the Ages or dispensations were made and perfectly joined together by faith in the Word of God" (Hebrews 11:3). Christ's Church is built upon Spiritual revelation, "line upon line, Word upon Word, stone upon stone" (Isaiah 28:10). And each member was born of the portion of Word predestinated to his Age.
I Corinthians 3:16-17, "Don't you realize that you are the Temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If any man defile the Temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the Temple of God is holy, and YOU are that Temple."
That's the same promise God gave to Abraham in Genesis 12:3, "I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you: and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed". Abraham's seed was Christ; by our Spiritual birth we become Abraham's seed, and children unto God by Jesus Christ. Woe betide any man who would defile us who are the Temple of God (Galatians 3:27-29). "Who dares condemn God's elect whom He has declared just?" (Romans 8:33-35).
The Temple of God is not built upon masonry, nor is it built upon Jesus or upon Peter, but upon Spiritual revelation of the Word of God for the hour. Faith. Line upon line, Word upon Word.
As the finished, perfected stones for Solomon's Temple were gathered, marked and laid out in the field, today the lively stones for God's true Temple, from Pentecost through seven Church Ages are all lying under the field, waiting for the first resurrection when the Temple is assembled and goes up (Ephesians 1:10; II Thessalonians 2:1).
The builders of Solomon's Temple found a peculiarly-shaped Stone in the form of a pyramid with five sides, the number of grace. Unable to conceive where such a Stone could belong, they cast it into the rubble. But when they rejected that Stone they rejected God's Plan, the Law and the Prophets, and substituted the obscene writings of the Talmud which made the Word of God of no effect to them. Psalm 118:22-23, "The stone which the builders refused is become the Head Stone of the corner. [Typed by the Capstone that was never placed on the Great Pyramid]. This is the LORD'S doing; it is marvellous in our eyes". It certainly is. Had Israel not rejected Messiah, we Gentiles could never have come in to the Kingdom as His heirs and joint-heirs.
Today these builders, Judaeo-Masons like the B'nai B'rith, seek to create a New World Order out of contrived chaos by encouraging miscegenation world-wide when it is accursed of God in the writings of Moses and the prophets, and by uniting religions which is likewise accursed by the "Great Architect of the Universe" (Amos 3:3). Such builders spread religious intolerance and racial hatred in Australia and throughout the world in the name of racial tolerance and anti-discrimination. And under the guise of democracy, the builders control political parties world-wide by International Criminals disguised as bankers. Parliamentarians, congressmen and senators who have never read the Talmud, sell out their nations to this evil in the name of good. The few who do read it yet continue to follow the controlled party line are the enemies of their electors, and co-conspirators with the builders.
That rejected Stone was laid on the day of Pentecost. Once more it is rejected, this time by the denominations (Romans 11:32). Like the senators, congressmen and parliamentarians, they have sold out their people and are trying to assemble the Building with man-made materials like creeds and the World Council of Churches. But the Temple can no more be united by man-made organization and creed today than It could be destroyed by the Pharisees' Talmud 2,000 years ago. God raised It from the dead in that day and He's preparing to resurrect It again today.
Like the stones for Solomon's Temple, these lively stones in the Body of Christ were all cut and polished by Serpent's seed people, spiritually speaking. Every stone earnestly contending, even unto martyrdom, against false doctrines, "so close as would almost deceive the very elect if it were possible", against organizational wickedness such as perpetrated by the builders' World Council of Churches, their United Nations and its agencies.
As soon as the builders accepted the rejected stone of Solomon's temple, the building went up. Now, after 2,000 years the Headstone is present, recognized and received by a tiny minority, not a Trinity, but One God and One Lord manifest bodily in one Man. The end-time Bride of Christ has found the Headstone and she's united with It by an invisible union. We're only waiting for a few more brothers and sisters to recognize their place in the Building, and when ministers within the circle of this Message accept the rejected Stone, the whole building will go up in the first resurrection.
After all of the stones had been cut, Solomon's temple took seven years to build. I Kings 6:1, 7, 37-38, "And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel had come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of the LORD. . . And the house, when it was in building, was built of stone made ready before it was brought thither: so that there was neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron heard in the house, while it was in building. . . In the fourth year was the foundation of the house of the LORD laid, in the month Zif: and in the eleventh year, in the month Bul, which is the eighth month, was the house finished throughout all the parts thereof, and according to all the fashion of it. So was he seven years in building it".
Solomon's temple was assembled from masonry and timbers pre-cut and finished to perfection so that there was no need to adjust or alter any of its parts. Like its antitype, the Great Pyramid which is God's second Bible, the stars being His first, the stones were honed to optical precision so that not even a razor blade can fit between them. A perfect type of God's true Temple, the Body of Christ wherein the faith of individual member fits perfectly with the faith of his brethren in his Age. The faith of that Age blends perfectly with the faith of the preceding and succeeding dispensations, and our Capstone Age will sit perfectly on top of Laodicea and tie the Body of Christ together (Ephesians 4:15-16).
As there was no sound heard from any tool of iron when Solomon's Temple was being assembled, there will be no sound of disputation when the end-time Bride is mature and ready for the manifestation of the Sons of God for we will all be in the unity of the faith because we have the perfect interpretation of the Word (Ephesians 4:13).
Revelation 8:1, "When He had opened the Seventh Seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour". Christ opened the Seventh Seal in 1963. The revelation of the unwritten Seventh Seal explains the mystery of the previous Six Seals which is the mystery of the Voices of the seven thunders John was forbidden to write (Revelation 10:4). During this brief interval of time, not a literal thirty-minutes, the end-time Bride is baptized into the Body and grows to maturity. Next the sleeping saints resurrect while we manifest the Sons of God then change in the atoms to be caught up together with them in the clouds of glory to meet the Lord in the air (I Thessalonians 4:17).
After Solomon's Temple had been completed it was still empty, except for the furniture, eleven months later on the day of dedication. Without something in there to worship, the building would have been in vain. Now when a man has been justified by grace through faith and sanctified by the blood through which the Life flows, he is still empty until Christ fills him with His Life (I Corinthians 13:1).
When the Levites carried the ark from the Tabernacle to its resting place in the Temple, the Pillar of Fire descended and filled the whole building until the priests could not stand to minister because of the glory of the Lord that filled the House (I Kings 8:3-11). The permanent Temple replaced the temporary Tabernacle or type just as the sacrifice of Christ replaced the Pascal lamb.
Acts 7:44-50, "Our fathers had the Tabernacle of witness in the wilderness, as God appointed, speaking unto Moses, that he should make it according to the fashion that he had seen. Which also our fathers that came after brought in with Joshua into the possession of the Gentiles, whom God drove out before the face of our fathers, unto the days of David; who found favour before God, and desired to find a tabernacle for the God of Jacob. But Solomon built Him a House. Howbeit the most High dwells not in temples made with hands; as said the prophet, Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool: what house will you build me? says the Lord: or what is the place of My rest? Has not My hand made all these things?"
Hebrews 10:5, "Wherefore when He came into the world, He said, Sacrifice and offering You have not desired, instead you made ready a body for Me to offer." The Antitype replaced the type.
The ark of the Covenant being a type of Christ, the baptism and infilling of Solomon's Temple with the Holy Ghost typed your baptism and infilling when the Spirit finds rest in your heart. In the upper room on the day of Pentecost when the Shekinah descended God created 120 temples (Acts 2:1-4), taking His rest in the hearts of 120 men and women as the prophet Joel had prophesied (Acts 2:16-17).
Like the priests who could not stand to minister because of the glory of the Lord, these reeled like drunkards when "they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance." This was God speaking from His final Temple. And every man understood what they said. Acts 2:5-8, "There were dwelling at Jerusalem Israelites, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because every man understood them speak in his own language. And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these who speak Galilaeans? And how is it that we each hear them own tongue, wherein we were born?"
But when Nimrod built his man-made organization, which is the mother and type of Roman Catholicism and all other man-made religions, there was a confusion of tongues that destroyed the brotherhood. Denominationalism divides the Body and destroys brotherhood. It is a Babel of doctrines or confusion of understanding creating division and disputation to justify personal beliefs rather than building unity in God's revealed Word . . . whatever Its true meaning. This is so because they are all without the Spirit. God filled His Temple with His glory. Not with creeds and dogma, but with Himself. And He is the Word Who never changes His ways. Today YOU are the Temple of the Holy Ghost
Mark 11:17, "Jesus taught, saying them, Is it not written, My House shall be called the House of prayer for ALL nations? . . ." (Isaiah 56:7). What is God's House if not the Bride of all Ages? When the 144,000 elect Israelites are born-again they glorify Jesus saying, "Who shall not reverence You, O Lord, and glorify Your Name? for You only are holy: for ALL nations shall come and worship before You; for now we understand Your judgments."
If ALL nations worship Jesus, won't they also worship His glorified wife? By the invisible union we two are one. By the new birth we are Abraham's Seed and Abraham means "father of many nations" plural; not just father of Israel but father of many Gentile nations which collectively are the kingdom of Israel (Genesis 17:5).
When all of the stones are marked with the Seal of God and we have all come into the unity of the faith, the five-fold ministry will be fulfilled and there will be a fresh outpouring of the Holy Ghost in the Latter Rain. We will manifest the Sons of God and the rest of the world will manifest their father while the stones under the field unite in a resurrection to glorified bodies. Then we will change and meet the Lord in the air.
At the close of the Hebrew dispensation Jesus said, "Father, glorify Your Name. Then came a Voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it [in the original seed], and will glorify it again" in the multiplied form of the end-time Bride during the manifestation of the Sons of God (John 12:28).
The Message has restored us to the original Life of the original Seed and back to our individual God-ordained positions in the Body and in one accord with each other. bb010704.htm
