Canada's Anti-Terrorism Laws
December, 2001 -- Speaking at a forum in Toronto sponsored by the Scientists For Peace, constitutional lawyer Rocco Galati spoke on Canada's Globalization, Militarization and Police State Agenda in Anti-Terrorism Bills C36, C22, C35, C42. "What this omnibus bill does is codify militarization and a police state, and further globalization interests. . ." Full story: canadianliberty.bc.ca
Journalists and Canadians
. . .the mass media in Canada are as much under Jewish control as in the United States. The undisputed top media mogul in Canada is Israel Asper. 60 per cent of all of Canada's mass media is in the hands of this one "Jew". Included are 14 metropolitan dailies and 128 local newspapers across the country.
Last month Izzy issued a written directive to his newspapers instructing them that from now on they must print nothing critical of Israel or of Israeli actions or policies . . . beginning December 12, the editorial content of all of his newspapers would be homogenized, and they all would be pro-Israel.
A group of reporters and writers at the Montreal Gazette have rebelled, at least for the moment. Full story: national@NatVan.com
Great Satan Liberates Islamic Women with Abortion
In Cairo the Moslem world united with the pro-life NGO's from the United States to thwart the United Nations and the United States government's efforts to impose abortion on the whole world. We may be grateful for that successful cooperation with the Moslems.
But how have we treated Afghanistan? The United States is permitting, forcing and intruding World Planned Parenthood into that population to push abortion and contraception, both of which are opposed by most Moslems. And women are to be forced into government. We may be certain that the Moslem world will take note of this policy as another manifestation of the Great Satan at work. It is my opinion that this action will be regarded as a declaration of war against the entire Moslem world. . ." Jake DeTar, MD.
The Red Herring of Anthrax
Just as people began questioning how Mohamed Atta and his terrorist cadre could have infiltrated so easily into our country. . . the anthrax hit. . . immediately America's obedient media turned its full attention to the bio-terror threat. . .
Could the anthrax scare have been intended as a diversion . . . from seeking a coherent explanation for the holes, discrepancies, and unanswered questions that the FBI shows absolutely no interest in clearing up? Full story: madcowprod.com
Firefighter Mag. Raps 9/11 Probe
January 4, 2002 -- A signed editorial in the January issue of Fire Engineering magazine says the current investigation [into the collapse of the World Trade Center] is "a half-baked farce."
The piece by Bill Manning, editor of the 125-year-old monthly that frequently publishes technical studies of major fires, also says the steel from the site should be preserved so investigators can examine what caused the collapse. . . "The destruction and removal of evidence must stop immediately" . . .
A growing number of fire protection engineers have theorized that "structural damage from the planes and the explosive ignition of jet fuel in themselves were not enough to bring down the towers" . . .
Manning told the Daily News, "The World Trade Center is not the only lightweight, core construction high-rise in the US. It's a typical method of construction."

Another Fire Engineering editorial, in the same issue observes that WTC is "The first total collapse of a high-rise during a fire in United States history. The largest structural collapse in recorded history." Full story: fe.pennnet.com
Bush Ropes Own Neck, Again Re. First WTC Strike
January 5, 2002 -- For a second time President Bush has stated that at about 9 am edt on the morning of September 11, he watched a video clip of the first plane hitting the WTC, just prior to that well-known remedial reading session he was about to have with some school kids. (The first occasion was on December 4, 2001. See Newsletter #202).
The President: ". . . first of all, when we walked into the classroom, I had seen this plane fly into the first building. There was a TV set on. . . "
Comment: Unless he had prior knowledge and is recalling the actual sequence, it would seem to be impossible for a president to simply confuse the events of that day again and again. Full story: whitehouse.gov
Oil Co. Adviser Named US Rep. to Afghanistan
January 3, 2002 -- President Bush has appointed a former aide to the American oil company Unocal, Afghan-born Zalmay Khalilzad, special envoy to Afghanistan. The nomination was announced December 31, nine days after the US-backed interim government of Hamid Karzai took office in Kabul.
The nomination underscores the real economic and financial interests at stake in the US military intervention in Central Asia. Khalilzad is intimately involved in the long-running US efforts to obtain direct access to the oil and gas resources of the region, largely unexploited but believed to be the second largest in the world after the Persian Gulf.

US Negotiations to Do a Deal with Taliban
January 8, 2002 -- American Morning with Paula Zahn.
Zahn: An explosive new book published in France alleges that the United States was in negotiations to do a deal with the Taliban for an oil pipeline in Afghanistan. (See Newsletter #199).
Joining us right now is Richard Butler to shed some light on this new book. He is the former chief UN weapons inspector. He is now on the Council on Foreign Relations and our own ambassador-in-residence -- good morning.
Richard Butler (FMR, UN Weapons Inspector): The most explosive charge, Paula, is that the Bush administration -- the present one, just shortly after assuming office slowed down FBI investigations of al Qaeda and terrorism in Afghanistan in order to do a deal with the Taliban on oil -- an oil pipeline across Afghanistan.

Fighting the Flesh Trade
They come to Israel from the Ukraine, Russia, and Moldavia looking for freedom. Instead they are sold as sex slaves. -- And you thought Israel was holy!!. . . 3,000 women are smuggled into the country every year for the purpose of prostitution. . . The women are viewed and bought at pimping auctions -- during which they are forced to undress -- at prices ranging from $4,000 to $10,000. . .
Often, by the time they have finished buying themselves out of their slavery, they have been resold and must begin again. Full story: jewsweek.com
January 8, 2002 -- A leading Russian Israeli newspaper, edited by an Orthodox Jew, published yesterday (January 8, 2002) made a call to the Jewish vigilantes to castrate captured Arab prisoners. "The state of Israel should embark on the program of mass sterilization of the Arab population," writes a columnist of the Novosti Nedeli, Marian Belenky in the article named 'My Proposal', with a sub-title 'How can we force them to leave'.
"While bearing in mind the Arab mentality, the Jewish vigilante groups could achieve great psychological results by castrating captive Arabs on the spot. It would cause panic among the Arab population and promote Arab emigration", writes Belenky.

Israel Kills Palestinian Boys, Steals Organs
Israeli forensic institute at Abu Kabir had extracted the vital organs of three Palestinian teenage children killed by the Israeli Army nearly ten days ago.
Zionist Minister of Health Nessim Dahhan said in response to a question by Arab member of the Zionist Parliament 'Knesset', Ahmed Teibi, on Tuesday that he couldn't deny that organs of Palestinian youths and children killed by the Israeli forces were taken out for transplants or scientific research.
Comment: What the news media fails to understand is that organs must be taken from a "donor" while they are still alive. So these boys were still alive when they were picked up. Full story: tehrantimes.com
Project Vatican is dedicated to the restoration of the Global Kingdom of Jesus Christ in the third millennium. The means by which this restoration is being accomplished are five-fold:
The Jesuit infiltration of the English colonies on the North American continent. . . Jesuit control of Christian schools and universities. . . Roman Catholic control exercised though Vatican operatives in the United States military, judiciary and media. . . The weakening of the US military, both in strength and resolve, in preparation for the Vatican-led One World Government. . . Total control of all institutions and resources on Planet Earth, including political, military, economic, educational, religious and environmental systems, for the purpose of ensuring global peace, prosperity and order."

Pastors Must Be Ordained by IRS
In seminars all over the US, Chitwood and Chitwood of Chattanooga, Tennessee, the most prominent and successful certified public accountant firm in the nation today that specializes in keeping churches out of trouble with the Internal Revenue Service, is now boldly saying to the pastors of America that they not only have to be "ordained by God, but also the IRS" . . .
Besides giving the pastor his job description, which is based on the Roman Catholic model of worship and polity, the IRS is demanding many other things that are clearly designed to make the IRS Commissioner the new head of the churches in America. Some of these demands are as follows: The church must collect a Federal ID (Social Security) number from visiting evangelists, missionaries, preachers and singers before they invite them to the pulpit. Pastors and church leaders are required to be an informer against their members and also to preach only IRS-prescribed sermons. Also, all fund raising material must be submitted to the IRS for their approval.
The job description for pastors is a list of nine specific sacerdotal duties which again is a Roman Catholic definition meaning sacred. The Catholic church teaches that these sacraments, when administered by a priest, are essential to one's salvation. This is totally opposite to the Bible definition which states that baptism and communion are memorials of the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, and that they follow salvation. The nine duties are: baptisms, weddings, serving the Eucharist (the Catholic sacrament of communion), teaching, spiritual counseling, christenings or baby dedications, administration of church affairs and the regular conducting of worship services. If the pastor does a substantial number of these things, he will receive very lucrative tax breaks. This is in clear violation of the Scriptures concerning the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes which the Lord Jesus said that He hates (Revelation 2:6, 2:15). It is the setting up of a privileged class of clergy. . .

A Life for a Life
Romans 8:13, "If you live after the flesh, you shall die: but if through the Spirit you mortify the deeds of the body, you shall live".
We are in mortal combat, not with flesh and blood in three dimensions of this natural realm but with the spirit realm that rules through the fourth dimension over those whose hearts are in this material world. Our vision looks beyond the physical forms and means of those that oppose God's righteousness, who are subject to spiritual forces in heavenly places. And the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but being warned by a Prophet, we understand the Enemy, know his motives and can anticipate his actions.
Brother Branham said, "If one cannot see the true Oneness of the godhead, Scriptural water baptism and Serpent's seed, just walk away from them. You know the election is off" (Titus 3:9-11). Oh, how rich is that revelation of the original sin for it ties the whole Bible together. If we all could read the Greek Septuagint like Jesus and the Septuagint version of the New Testament, we would see the race issue in the letter and not only by the Spirit, and know that it is not confined just to Genesis and antediluvian times, but continues to the present. The sin of miscegenation is extinguishing Adam's race today "as it was in the days of Noah" (Genesis 6:1-4).
Satan and his cohorts are fighting for your soul and my soul. However, the weapons of his warfare are carnal, but like any good general, he attacks where our defenses are the weakest. God gave Israel Ten Commandments to cover Satan's points of attack: the five senses of their mortal spirit -- memory, affection, reasoning, conscience and imagination, and five senses of the flesh -- see, taste, touch, smell, and hear.
The soul, which has only one sense, must choose between doubt or unbelief in God's unchanging Word. The soul is ordained to rule over the spirit by the Word of God, then the spirit is to bring the flesh under submission. Israel demonstrated to our admonition and their pain: "obedience is better than sacrifice." But until it has been quickened to the Word of the hour and born-again, the soul is overruled by the desires of the mortal spirit and flesh which are of the world, and earthy.
When the old worldly nature on our soul is dead we are free from sin and death and united with Christ. But although we're born-again and wrestle not against the flesh and blood of our foes, we still must overcome the earthly nature of our own unredeemed spirit and flesh, and die to the love of the world (Romans 7-8: Colossians 3:3). God's law requires a Life for a life, and in order to receive the Life He surrendered for us, we must be dead to our old desires. Paul testified, "I die daily."
Moses' Law could not free man from the law of sin and death, but if the Spirit of Christ is in you, your soul has eternal Life now, however because of sin, the body must die or be changed in the atoms (Romans 8:10). But the Christian's warfare is not carnal and by grace through faith God fortifies us behind His impregnable armour -- not the 'letter' but the Spirit of the Ten Commandments:
"Our empowerment must come from our union in Christ and the mighty power of His revealed Word within us. . . Therefore we are to put on every piece of God's armour to be able to resist the Enemy and stand our ground when he attacks; and having done all the crisis demands, stand firmly in our position in the Word."
"Hold your ground therefore, having tightened the belt of truth about your loins, and put on the breastplate of righteousness signifying God's approval; having shod your feet in preparation to face the enemy with firm-footed stability and prompt readiness to preach the good news of peace with God. Raise over all the covering shield of faith with which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God: praying at all times in the Spirit, alert and watching with all perseverance and supplication for all saints" (Ephesians 6:10, 13-18).
From Pentecost and throughout the Church Ages, the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals so that the saints had only PART-Word and Christ mediated for their ignorance beyond the Word for THEIR day. When in 1963 the revelation of the Seven Seals unveiled Christ, the fullness of the Word; restored the apostolic faith; and finished the mystery of God (Revelation 10:7; Acts 3:23; I Corinthians 13:10), PART-Word and Christ's mediation for the ignorance of that which is complete and perfect, was done away, and we have the perfect interpretation of the Word (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Acts 3:21).
Now "The Word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart" (Hebrews 4:12). So if we should have a weakness in our defenses, or if our one weapon of offense, the sword of the Spirit is missing the mark, we can diagnose the trouble by applying the Word and identify whether it is located in our soul -- by imperfect understanding; in one of the five senses of our mortal spirit, or in one of the senses of our corruptible flesh. We can then treat that deficiency by the fullness of the Word.
If you ask, "Who, then are my enemies?" look into your own breast: there you will find sinful lusts, warring against you, sloth and sleepiness clouding your spirit, unbelief and doubt, or wounds of conscience, disturbing you . . . The less sin, the less power of the Devil. So sanctify yourself.
God's warriors train by denying the world to their senses. Victory comes through the Word of God and prayer, being not hearers of the Word alone, but doers of what It says. By examining our own selves, whether we are in the faith, we may discern our personal weaknesses, know where to apply the Word to protect ourselves from the insidious attacks of the Enemy, and how to hold the sword of the Spirit to his throat.
Like gangrene or a cancer, sin must be cut out, not bandaged over. Brother Branham taught us that once we have identified a problem, the solution is generally as obvious as 'doing the opposite'.
Our battle is not against natural persons but against spiritual rulers of the unseen world who attack us singly as individuals and collectively as a nation, church or other group, in weak or sickly members not synchronised with the Word. For instance what calls itself "the Church" today, together with the God it claims to love and represent, has become irrelevant to the majority of so-called Christians. And ever since the Seals were revealed, Christ has been calling the wise and foolish virgin out of her. He calls the church known to the world an adulteress. She is mortally ill. Beyond restoration, and will be stoned to death (Revelation 16:21).
Consider the unprecedented outpouring of wickedness from Western, once Christian nations symptomatic of apostasy and barbarous insanity daily manifest in murderous assaults upon the undeveloped, defenseless and poverty-stricken Muslim peoples of Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Somalia, etc. And since we are still under the Fourth Seal of the Gentile dispensation, this is but "the beginning of sorrows" (Matthew 24:8). How evil will be the times for those who remain on earth under the Sixth Seal, when Satan and his demons are cast down, and all but an elect 144,000 Israelites will worship Rome's Devil-incarnate pope then ruling the New World Order and saying, "Who can compare with him? Who is able to make war with him?" (Revelation 13:4).
These acts of aggression we are presently witnessing attest the apostasy of the once Christian West, our moral bankruptcy, our miserable and cowardly wretchedness, our treacherous dishonesty, spiritual blindness, and the nakedness of our once Protestant churches now in collusion with the Satanic might of the great whore of Rome.
These circumstances should clear demonstrate, even to neophytes, that the great commission, "Go, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ," is fulfilled, and that the end-time evangelism is calling the wise and foolish virgin out from Rome and her harlot daughter churches as a brand plucked from the fire (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4).
Where is the armour of God and the sword of the Spirit? Where is truth held as a personal excellence? -- that candor of mind that is free from affectation, pretense, simulation, falsehood, and deceit? The whole 9/11 episode is a conspiracy of the City of London -- and nothing whatever to do with Afghanistan or Muslim people outside a few fanatics who may have been deceived and worked in menial roles. The once Christian USA, Britain and NATO countries, together with Muslim Pakistan and other small nations coerced and bullied into co-operation, are cowards and opportunists, the covering of whose loins is held up not with truth but deceit.
If the covering of the generative parts of our peoples and nations are secured with lies, we are a wicked and adulterous generation. The Greek for "adulterous generation" mean mongrel race, or hybrid generation, as Judea was in the days of our Lord, and like our (once) Christian lands are today . .. "as it was in the days of Noah" when the seed of Adam hybrid with the descendants of Cain, committing genocide on Adam's race (Genesis 6:1-4). Jesus foretold this sin would repeat in days of His 'parousia' (Matthew 24:37). The godless who promote this genocide call it "multiculturalism" when it is actually multiracialism which is the sin of miscegenation.
The original sin in the garden of Eden was what we now call multiculturalism. It was miscegenation between Eve and an intelligent, convivial, upright, man-like creature called the Serpent. The fruit of their union was the mongrel or mamser, Cain, a hybrid not in the genealogy of Adam. This sin is repeating today as sons of Adam lust after the daughters of Cain.
But if our national dress is fastened over our natural generative parts by lies and not truth, what of our lips which should declare the holy Word of Life to the increase of a peculiar people and an holy nation? Instead of God's Word which is Spirit, Truth and Life, our nations, churches and citizens have mongrelised It into a lie of creeds and traditions producing Death. When Judah made the Word of God of no effect to their tribe by writing the Talmud, they rejected and crucified Messiah and God turned to we Gentiles. Now the Gentiles have made the Word of God of no effect, having rejected His Prophet, thereby crucifying unto themselves the Son of God afresh. Since God is unchanging and without respect of persons, He is turning from us and back to Israel. Then He will pour out His wrath upon all sinners.
Read Isaiah 28:14-22 which speaks of God's judgment upon the Gentiles and upon the Gentile and Serpent's seed self-styled "Jews" who rule Israel, while he separates to Himself an elect 144,000 blood descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob during Daniel's Seventieth Week.
Look at the Jewish lies whereunto cowardly our politicians sunk the nations in the days of Nuremberg's kangaroo court Trials, the hoax of the holocaust, the recently exposed fraud against the Swiss bankers who were accused of holding so-called "Jewish" gold, and tribunals of the Anti Defamation League of B'nai B'rith wherein 'truth is no defense'.
That's right. To these shamelessly wicked "Jews", 'Truth is no defense!'
Paul foretold the Gentile dispensation would end in apostasy like the dispensation of Israel before us (Romans 11:32; II Thessalonians 2:3). Jesus said that even churches would be deceived "and know it not," and He promised to send us a Prophet with THUS SAITH THE LORD who would call both the wise and foolish virgin out from Rome and her Protestant daughters into the unity of the faith (Revelation 3:17; 18:4; Matthew 25:6; II Thessalonians 2:1).
Hell is opening wide her mouth to receive all those who fail to gain the victory over their own senses. Satan is gathering them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. But right now there is a battle taking place in that minuscule part of the earth called John, Mary, or whoever you are. And as the heavenly dimension has illumined the souls of the Bride by the revelation of the brightness of Christ's glory (Revelation 18:1), the regions of the lost are embracing those who have rejected the end-time Ministry of His Prophet as Peter forewarned in Acts 3:23.
Christ's Bride is uniting with and coming under pre-eminence to the fullness of the Word for the manifestation of the Sons of God. When she is in condition to 'speak the Word,' like Enoch, she will step from these three dimensions into the presence of the resurrected, glorified Church Age saints without death to meet Her glorified Lord. Then the plagues of God's wrath fall upon earth while He reveals Himself to Israel's elect through their two prophets.
In the days of His flesh, hardly a tenth of one percent of the population of Judea knew Messiah had come, yet His blood has been upon them ever since. Likewise, most Gentiles know nothing of His second Coming in these last days yet His Bible warned us to be watchful, for His Coming would be "as a thief in the night." Furthermore Jesus stated emphatically not to look for a Man, but the nominal Christians still anticipate a public spectacular (I Thessalonians 5:2; Revelation 15:15; Matthew 24:22-28).
We are to put on the breastplate of righteousness, to protect our heart where the Spirit is enthroned. Righteousness is the evidence of a converted soul. Christ's righteousness is the bride's dress ware (Revelation 19:7-8) so the breastplate is the Token of Christ's Life on display -- integrity, virtue, purity of life, rightness, correctness of thinking, feeling, and acting -- produced from within the heart that beats beneath the breastplate.
In the Way translation, Romans 8:33 says, "Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect? God says I am righteous".
Where is righteousness to be found in our nations and churches today? Were the churches preaching righteousness, our men would not have allowed a bloodthirsty United Nations to be born. And multiculturalism, which was Satan's first strategy in the garden of Eden and accursed of God could never have been able to fester. Nor would the once Christian West have conspired with the kings of the East and the merchants of the earth to destroy the WTC and damage the Pentagon in order to disguise the reestablishment of opium poppies in Afghanistan which fund the military industrial complex and parallel government; and to build a pipeline enabling the West to exploit Caspian Sea oil reserves with private economic and strategic advantages over the Russians; and to advance the agenda of a wandering elite with allegience to no state for totalitarian one world government. Nor would we be fielding troops at taxpayer expense to arrange the pawns for their World War III.
In the Bible, footprints mean possession. God told Abraham he should possess the land wherever he trod. Abraham's seed, Christians (Galatians 3:16-29), have trod the whole earth. Footprints also mean judgment. In olden times, one put his foot on the throat of his defeated foe. And in 1963, Abraham's Heir and Royal Seed set one foot upon the sea and one foot upon the earth, claiming victory and placing Judgment upon Rome and her (once) Protestant image, the United States (Revelation 10:1-2).
The Christian walk is a witness according to the Word wherein the world does not see the individual. They see Christ in him. So that some, becoming thirsty for the same Life receive the grace of God thereby, whilst for others it is a stumbling stone and rock of offense. "For the Word of God does not return to Him void but accomplishes that to which It was purposed". Ours is to be a holy walk, our feet shod with the preparation of the Good News producing the tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, fearing nothing from God and content with our earthly lot, whatever that may be.
Faith is doctrine: the clear understanding once delivered to the apostles and prophets, restored in these last days (Matthew 16:18; Ephesians 2:20; Malachi 4:4-6; Matthew 17:11; Acts 3:21). We are to raise over all the covering shield of faith with which we can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked one.
The shield Paul had in mind was the "scutum", a shield four feet long by two feet six inches broad, and covered with wet hides to quench flaming missiles made of reeds with tow and pitch which were ignited and then hurled. This shield was able to cover the whole person, like faith which remits past sins and quenches Satan's flaming missiles of accusation because by faith we know we are without condemnation (Romans 8:1-2; I John 3:9).
Faith is a clear understanding of the revealed Word of God. It is the mind of God in us and the certainty of our identification and union with Him. Without faith it is impossible to please God. Without faith we are none of His (Romans 8:8-9; Hebrews 11:6). Our shield is God's holiness through grace by faith (I John 5:4).
Aside from prayer, our last article of defensive battle dress is the helmet of salvation, protecting the head, for the warrior does not hide himself behind his shield (or faith) but looks over it into the face of his opponent. The salvation which crowns and protects the Christian enables him to hold up his head with confidence and in the joy of his salvation.
Our one offensive weapon is the short, straight thrusting sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.
Of himself, man is unable to withstand the attacks upon his vulnerable points. Only in the strength of the Lord can he do it, though he stands alone. The individual pieces of armor are truth, righteousness, zealous but calm witness, faith which concerns the whole personality, and the hope of salvation which exalts and encourages; and union with the sword of God's revealed Word.
Thus is the brave Christian soldier assured of victory. No one piece of armour can be undervalued nor neglected; each one requires the other; together they make the whole armour of God.
"All who will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution" (II Timothy 3:12). He who is not assailed is no Christian. Satan does not attack his own but uses them to assault believers. All temptations of the Devil turn out to be trials from God in which we become stronger, and more confident and invincible as we overcome in Him. Our final trial will be the new wave offering of two loaves baked with leaven in the manifestation of the Sons of God, proving that through the new birth Christ can have pre-eminence of a redeemed sinner saved by grace.
Brother Branham was the firstfruits of them that are Christ's at His 'parousia,' and our forerunner (Leviticus 23:16-21; I Corinthians 15:23). The manifestation of the Sons of God will not be a public spectacular; its sole function will be to build faith in Christ's end-time Bride for her to change in the atoms.
Let us who live within the circle of this end-time Message examine our own selves, whether we are in the faith, or merely foolish virgins. Is our girdle a chain of eternal truths? Is our breastplate the righteousness which avails before God? Are our war-shoes skill in peaceable Gospel testimony in Word and deed? Our shield of faith, it it His faith? And our sword, is it the short, straight Word of God that settles all disputes, without theology, nor polity, nor confession, neither the letter of human reasoning?
If God is not with us we are lost. The once Christian West no longer trusts in God and is defenseless with no sword of offense against "spiritual wickedness in high places." We must either die to self that we may live by His strength, or perish in our own feeble might. nl207.htm
