Squeeze On Gold - Worldwide Scandal About To Break
Central banks are said to have lent their gold for about 1% per annum -- the cheapest borrowed money on earth. They have not reported these loans as sales, meaning their official gold reserves remain constant. But the leased gold is gone. It has been borrowed by large trading companies called bullion banks. They borrowed at 1%, sold the gold, took the money they earned by selling the gold and invested it at 5% or more. . .
But, at some point, the Central bankers will have to demand repayment. At that point the gold leasing game will end. The bullion banks will go bust, the Central banks won't be repaid and the public will find out -- once again -- that they might not be able to trust Central banking. . .
As the truth about the one-way direction of the Central banks' gold leasing programmes becomes clearer to the public and they recognize the statistical fraud -- that the gold is gone and won't be coming back -- the upward pressure on gold's price will accelerate. The chickens are finally coming home to roost! Full story: Rense.com
Bilderberg Batters Bush; but Unity Remains on NWO
Chantilly, Va., June 9, 2002 -- Bilderberg celebrated the fact that a global UN tax is 'part of the public dialogue' without a public outcry by 'nationalists.' Alan Keyes, as President Ronald Reagan's UN ambassador, denounced the proposed tax, and it has been widely discussed since.
Bilderberg has offered several variations of the world tax. First, it suggested a 10-cent tax on oil at the barrel head, meaning citizens would pay a direct tax to the UN when gassing up their cars or using oil in any way. A surcharge on international travel by air or sea and a tax on international financial transfers were also proposed.
Like the federal income tax, a UN levy would be so small at the outset the consumer would hardly notice. But establishing the principle that the UN can directly tax citizens of the world is important to Bilderberg. It is another giant step toward world government. It is openly discussed with little public notice or objection 'except for the Ron Pauls in Congress' and 'nationalist' publications, Bilderberg boys assured themselves. . .
NATO has been functioning as the standing army of the United Nations since celebrating its 50th anniversary in Washington during the invasion of Yugoslavia. NATO's first shot fired in anger was not in defense, as its charter required, but in an offensive war. At that time, leaders announced NATO was no longer confined to Europe but would undertake military ventures 'anywhere in the world' at the direction of the UN Security Council.
Bilderberg is reinforcing this world army doctrine while doing early work on the third great region of the world: the emerging 'Asian-Pacific Union.' Full story: americanfreepress.net
Sweden to Criminalize Opposition to Homosexuality
The Swedish government is moving toward prohibiting Christians from voicing biblical positions on issues. The Swedish Parliament has moved to within one step of changing the nation's constitution to ban speech or materials opposing homosexuality and any other alternate lifestyles. If the amendment becomes reality, violators could be subject to prison sentences. Swedish lawmakers narrowly approved the constitutional amendment last week. . . Full story: family.org
Top Lawyer Urges Death for Families of Bombers
Washington (The Forward) June 7, 2002 -- Nathan Lewin, a prominent Washington attorney, candidate for the US Supreme Court and Jewish communal leader is calling for the execution of family members of suicide bombers. (His article appears on the web at http://www.shma.com/may02/nathan.htm).
Lewin argued that the biblical injunction to destroy the ancient tribe of Amalek serves as a precedent in Judaism for taking measures that are "ordinarily unacceptable" in the face of a mortal threat. His proposal, however, was rejected by an Israeli diplomat in New York, and discounted, in terms ranging from mild to condemnatory, by a range of commentators, terrorism experts and Jewish communal leaders from across the American political spectrum.
Rabbi Eric Yoffie. . . said. "Don't go down that road because it is wrong, self-defeating and dangerous for Israel."
Comment: Had the Lawyer read his Bible and studied the "Jew's" most eminent historians he would realize he has a 'death wish.' See also Ezekiel 18:20. Full story: forward.com
From the prophecies of Isaiah and the other prophets Judah was anticipating a glorious restoration following their return from their Babylonian Captivity. However, instead of 'millennium blessings,' they remained under Persian governors in the Promised Land which, as Daniel had prophesied over a hundred years beforehand, would continue to be ruled by the Gentiles until the consummation.
Daniel 10:20-21, "Do you know why I have come to you? I am here to tell you what is prophesied for the future. Then, when I leave you I will return to fight with the prince of Persia: and after him, the prince of Greece. Only Michael your Prince stands with me".
Daniel 9:27, "And the prince of Rome shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate".
The defeat of Babylon by the Medo-Persians brought Judah's release. However two more Gentile empires would succeed Persia before Israel and Jerusalem would "anoint the Most Holy" through their revelation of Jesus Christ and His Bride -- the mainly Gentile Church. Having misinterpreted these prophecies, Judah had fallen into murmuring and ingratitude, complaining at God's injustice to them as though they had claims upon Him, thus denying His sovereign and infallible justice. They had also relapsed into marrying heathen wives ("as it was in the days of Noah") which Ezra had sternly forbidden.
Ezra had separated the Israelites from the heathen people, and had forced the highest in the land to dissolve their wicked matrimonial alliances and put away their foreign wives and children (Ezra 10:44). The people lapsed, and twelve years later Nehemiah effected a new separation from all strangers (Nehemiah 9:2).
Nehemiah 13:15-30 blames Judah's connection with strangers for irregularities regarding tithes, observance of the sabbath and the marriage and divorce situation. When he had "cleansed them from all strangers" Nehemiah found the restoration of discipline and careful order in the priesthood quite straightforward. This pattern holds for the end-time as it did in the days of Noah and Lot (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4). God separates light from darkness and He never changes His ways (Genesis 1:3-4; John 1:5).
Now Malachi rebukes those who had divorced their Israelite wives in order to marry heathen women.
Malachi 2:10-16, "Haven't we all one Father (Malachi 1:6; I Corinthians 8:6; Ephesians 4:6)? Has not one God created us to be His peculiar people (Isaiah 43:1; Ephesians 2:10)? Why then do we deal treacherously against our own kindred, by putting away our lawful Hebrew wives and marrying strange women profaning the covenant of our fathers which ordained that we should be separated from the other peoples of the world" (Exodus 19:5; Leviticus 20:24,26; Deuteronomy 7:3)?
(When he says, "Have we not all one Father," Malachi classes himself with the offenders since God deals with Israel as a nation and this was a national sin that threatened a national divorce as God put away the northern Kingdom for their idolatry -- Jeremiah 3; Hosea 1-2).
"Judah has dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah has defiled God's holiness which He loved -- the Israelite wives who were set apart as holy daughters of God (Jeremiah 2:3) -- by divorcing his wife to marry the daughter of a strange god" (i.e. idolatresses).
(God classifies this unlawful divorce as an "abomination" equivalent to idolatry, witchcraft and idolatry, while the unlawful marriages to heathen women profane the race and prohibit "a godly seed" -- Matthew 5:32; 19:9).
"The Lord will cut off out of the tents of Jacob (i.e. the covenant), every man that does this, the watcher (or priest who is responsible for teaching piety, but who leads into evil) and the scholar (or congregation of the priest who become responsible and will answer according to what they have been taught), and his offerings will not shield him from the penalty of his sin in repudiating his Jewish wife and taking a foreign woman. (Therefore neither should escape, not even in his posterity, for his children will be illegitimate if not physical serpent's seed).
"And you do this with double guilt, covering the altar of the Lord with tears shed by your divorced innocent wives, and with your own weeping and with crying out because the Lord does not regard your offering any more, and you receive no blessings from Him. Refusing to be ashamed or to confess your guilt you shamelessly ask, 'Why has God abandoned me?'
Because in witnessing your solemn marriage vows, He sanctified the bond between you and the wife of your youth, against whom you have dealt treacherously: she therefore remains your companion and the wife of your covenant for the remainder of her life. Didn't God make you one flesh yet preserve your individual spirits? And why did He make you two one couple? Because He sought a godly offspring from your union. Therefore keep your spirit under subjection, and let no man deal treacherously and be faithless to the wife of his youth. For the Lord, the God of Israel, says, 'I hate divorce: and I hate cruel men ("with cursing as their garment, clothed with shame, and covered with their own confusion as a mantle" Psalm 109:18, 29): therefore control your passions that you deal not treacherously and faithlessly with your marriage partner".
Matthew 19:3-9, "Seeking to entangle Jesus in words that would lead to His ruination (as John's teaching on marriage and divorce had accused Herod Antipas of adultery and led to John the Baptist's imprisonment and death) the Pharisees asked Him, 'Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?' (They certainly still think this way today for the Pharisees' Australian Labor Party legislated in 1972 that a man or a woman could put away their mate for every cause, or no for cause at all, in 'no fault divorce').
Jesus answered, 'Have you not read, that He which made them at the beginning made them male and female,' And said, 'For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they two shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, (not some backslidden preacher or half-drunk magistrate), let not man put asunder'."
God made us male and female to the intent that through biological attraction we would unite as one to reproduce after our own kind. However since we have a soul which is the part of us made in the image of God, that conscience, in discerning between right and wrong, raises us above the level of sensual beasts to Sons of God in communion with God and with aspirations to become gods with eternal Life in dominion over this earth (John 10:34-35).
Before He formed Adam from the dust of the earth, "God blessed all of Adam's seed that ever would be, both male and female, and said, 'Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth'" (Genesis 1:28).
Notice, God only blessed those foreknown as the seed of Adam and Eve. He wanted us to multiply and reproduce after our own the kind seed that was within our own selves (Genesis 1:11). He did not want us to hybreed with the beasts of the field, or their hybrid offspring, therefore He did not bless Cain and his lineage who are the seed of the Serpent and accursed of God forever (Genesis 3:15; 6:4; Matthew 24:37). After the flood, God reiterated the curse on the physical Serpent's seed, Canaan, and blessed the righteous seed of Noah (Genesis 9:25-26).
The Lord placed enmity between the seed of the Serpent and the seed of Adam. Were there no physical Serpent's seed on earth today, there would be no enmity, and no more wars. 'Multiculturalism' is in reality 'multi-racialism' and the catalyst by means of which Satan's children are accelerating the effects of the original sin through miscegenation resulting in the genocide of Adam's race.
Some might exclaim, 'What about the Muslims?' Most Muslims, like most denominational Christians, are Adam's children in the flesh; but spiritually they are Serpent's seed, the children of disobedience or seed of discrepancy like all denominational Christians since they believe the lie of false doctrine the "master and the scholar" or priest and people were teaching and believing in Judah (Malachi 2:12; II Thessalonians 2:11; Ephesians 2). Along with all of the saints we were once spiritual Serpent's seed since we were born in sin, conceived in iniquity, and came into the world speaking lies (Romans 5:12; I John 1:8-9, 7). The spiritual Serpent's seed can be converted before they come to a time of no more repentance when their names, like Esau's, are removed from the Book of Life. However the physical Serpent's seed, who comprise most of the world's population, were never in the Book of Life since they are not in Adam's race, and they have no kinsman Redeemer. Jesus Christ was the last Adam; He was not the last Cain. The Muslims and these non-Christian Judaeo-Christians are being manipulated by the physical Serpent's seed lurking behind the scenes in love with money and the Satanic power it imparts.
Satan has been the god of this wicked and adulterous earth since the Fall. At the time of the Flood the physical Serpent's seed had overrun the earth through miscegenation with the sons of Adam who fell to lust. The waters destroyed all but one, who was in the Ark, and a fallen son of God reproduced the physical Serpent's seed, Canaan, through incest with that "daughter of man".
Now, in the end of this world, the irredeemable physical Serpent's seed once again comprise the majority of earth's population. Soon all "the kingdoms of this world" will worship Satan incarnate in "that man of sin, the son of perdition" (Revelation 13:8). And as Satan vicariously incarnate himself into the human race through the instrumentality of the Serpent, his children in their turn have incarnate themselves by miscegenation and impersonation as God's (so-called) chosen ones.
Satan's children rule this world. Their United Nations enforce miscegenation, creating hordes of physical and spiritual Serpent's seed refugees and imposing ungodly treaties upon the fallen sons of God whereby our once Christian nations are bound to assimilate swarms of these hybrids who are not on the Book of Life (Revelation 17:8). Assimilation and intermarriage with them is genocide to Adam's race.
God wants His children to be just like Himself -- 'chips off the Old Block.' Therefore, when Adam was formed He commanded him not to partake or receive knowledge from Lucifer, Mr. Sum-of-all-Wisdom, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Spiritually we were to fellowship and learn from Christ, the Tree of Life. The spoken Word is the original seed and we were to produce a godly seed through understanding from and obedience to the Tree of Life. So in the beginning God formed Adam, separated the byproduct and brought them back together as one through the marriage union to reproduce after their own kind a godly seed of the pure Adamic race, itself a spoken Word of God, and raise them in the love and admonition of God by the revealed Word of God. But the byproduct, woman, was deceived when she listened to by Lucifer's reasoning against the revealed Word, and fell.
God never changes His ways and Satan never changes his means. From the garden of Eden he caused women and men to fall by the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life. In colloquial terms they translate: money, women, and popularity. If you read "The Jewish War of Survival" you will immediately recognize that the means Satan's children employed to bring Christian nations against each other in World Wars I and II are the same tried and proven tactics he is employing today to bring them into conflict with Islam in World War III.
God set enmity between the Serpent's seed and the seed of Adam. The Serpent's seed always work in the background under another name and in a different occupation. They can not stand in the open and fight because darkness cannot exist with light so they operate behind the scenes through Gentile 'fronts.' They are able to employ Gentile 'fronts' with such success because they know how to corrupt men from the Word of God and bring them under the power of their father the Devil through the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life (John 8:44). They work through sinners, therefore THE EXECUTIVE OF THE WORLD'S GOVERNMENTS MUST ALL BE HARD-HEARTED SINNERS like the Pharisees of Jesus' day.
"The Pharisees said to Jesus, 'Why did Moses say a man may divorce his wife by merely writing her a letter of dismissal, and to put her away?'
Jesus replied, 'Because of the hardness of your hearts Moses suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say to you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, commits adultery (because he has broken his vow): and whoso marries her which is put away commits adultery' (because she already has a living husband -- Romans 7:1-3)."
The Law permits a man to divorce his wife and remarry only for grave misconduct. If, for instance, the woman was in fornication and did not confess her sins before she married, her husband can put her away and marry another because she has deceived him and her vows were invalid. Or if she puts him away by committing adultery or in some other way dishonors his headship, he can put her away and marry another for she is as one dead to him for under the Law she would have been stoned.
Moses' objective in requiring the husband to deliver a writing of divorcement was to restrict its incidence by establishing specific rules and limitations wherein it might be permitted and so again elevate the marriage relationship and realize its idea. "From the beginning it was not so," but then neither was sin and the low moral state of men's hearts.
Malachi emphasizes what Jesus called "hardness of heart" -- the heinous treachery and unfaithfulness to the wife of one's youth -- equating it with God's hatred for putting away, and adjudging it the height of cruelty.
God is the Word. If His Word fails He is not God at all, and we are all lost. Any word is a thought expressed. Jesus commanded us to think, understand a matter and carefully compose our thoughts before we utter a single word, then to express them in concise, unequivocal terms of "Yes," or "No." As sons and daughters of God our word should be as reliable as that of our Father remembering that in the manifestation of the Sons of God, what we say, He will do. nl228.htm
