"We focus on the PRESENT Truth -- what Jesus is doing NOW . . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Gradually the 'hidden hand' is dividing the world between the camp of the highly organized political Zionists, funded by the bottomless pockets of American taxpayers whose country borrows from "Jewish" banksters, and the disorganized comparably unsophisticated Islamic countries that borrow from the "Jewish" banksters.
President George W. Bush has issued an edict stating whoever is not with him in his "war against terror" is the enemy. Only Britain and Australia bowed the knee. When Australia's Prime Minister wavered after discovering Aussies did not support the call to war, he soon discovered we had become the enemy. He was pulled into line by the massacre of almost two hundred souls in Hindu Bali. At least ninety of the dead were fellow Australians.
The chutzpah has not ceased with national days of mourning, church services, speeches in parliament, plans for memorials, confiscation of hand guns, increased defense budgets, more training of murderous Indonesian soldiers, an Australian 'Homeland Security,' etc.,
What was provocatively begun as a "crusade" is indeed the war against Islam planned by the Illuminati in 1871. For palliative effect non-Muslim North Korea was included in George II's "axis of Evil," without which it was a decidedly Islamic axis. And although or perhaps because it is a nuclear power, there are no threats to attack. Unlike defenseless war-torn Iraq, North Korea has no oil for Israel to covet and is not Islamic. Besides, it is a Judaeo-Communist country and of the same blood stock as the non-Semitic Israeli majority.
To continue this charade, Indonesia, the most populous Muslim nation has been coerced to join George's "war against terrorism." Meanwhile, Australia's Foreign Minister is doing his utmost to kill Indonesia's economy by warning tourists away because of the possibility of further "terrorist attacks". For good measure he is warning tourists off Buddhist Thailand, and also Malaysia and Singapore. He must have taken lessons from Emperor George II and his "Jewish" masters on how to lose friends and influence others to hate you.
For fifty years the "Jew" Bernard Baruch was the trusted adviser of every US president, Democrat and Republican, from Woodrow Wilson to Dwight D. Eisenhower (and also Prime Minister Winston Churchill). He was the most powerful man in America until the Communist traitor, Harry Hopkins, during World War II.
In trying to push his resolution against Iraq through the UN Security Council, George II's approach is that by which the world would be ruled under the world-government schemes propounded from New York by Bernard Baruch and his school of "internationalists" whose concept may be called "super-Colonialism" and rests entirely on rigid organization, force and penalty. Speaking at the dedication of a memorial to President Wilson in Washington Cathedral in December 1956, Baruch again raised his demand, in the following, startlingly contradictory terms: "After two world wars . . . we still seek what Wilson sought, 'a reign of law based on the consent of the governed. . . that reign of law can exist only when there is the force to maintain it . . . which is why we must continue to insist that any agreement on the control of atomic energy and disarmament be accompanied by ironclad provisions for inspection, control and punishment of transgressors,". (Douglas Reed, The Controversy of Zion, p. 558).
The 'hidden hand' has not changed its script. "Irresistible pressure" continues to indict Islam. The British Government has announced a ban on Jemaah Islamiah, the south-east Asian group suspected of being behind the Bali bombing and frozen their assets in Britain.
Australia lodged a request to have Jemaah Islamiah listed as a terrorist organisation with the United Nations last night and expects support from at least 43 countries, including Indonesia.
Now Chechen Muslims are holding a thousand souls hostage in a Moscow theatre, and a man arrested and charged with the Washington DC Sniper shootings is a Muslim. I wonder which influential non-Muslim groups were able to orchestrate the deadly pantomime?
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith and whosoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible. . . Your brother Anthony.
Australian Anti-Zionist Jewess Tells it the Way it is!
Sydney, October 17, 2002 -- It could be that Moslems really did the Bali bombing, but I doubt it, it's too perfect. To be honest, I speculated something would happen against the Australians after our PM broke the total international isolation of Bush and Blair.
Israel, IMHO, tricked Australia and forced our government into supporting Bush blindly in order to generate Islamic hatred towards Australia.
Once this hate is established the rest is 'clear sailing'. . . Now Bush can easily request the Indonesian government (which is in his pocket to the tune of $600 million dollars at least - and Australia-trained Indonesia's military) to "join the war against terrorism". This tactic is NOT a speculation, it is almost word for word the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. . .
The poor, unsophisticated Moslems will never realize who is really pulling their strings. And the whole thing is, of course, being financed with unlimited American taxpayer money. . . I continue to maintain that it was probably a Mossad-involved operation in Bali because of the perfection of the 'job'. it takes a Jew to understand the Zionist mind as reflected in the reviled 'Elders'. . .
Most of what we read about al Qaeda and bin Laden is CIA/Mossad fiction, always based on fictional 'informed sources'. Al Jazzeera is now a CIA asset (based on my research). IMHO, they are designed to funnel hatred towards bin Laden and stimulate the fictional 'terrorism' mania gripping American now. BIN LADEN IS JEWISH, full stop.
A very close friend and a MOST eminent Israeli journalist told me recently, that according to Jewish law - bin Laden is Jewish, as his mother is Jewish! AND . . . bin Laden's mother's family lives in Israel . . . [Our] strategy is simple: attempt to make our enemies suspect each other and then fight it out. It saves us the work. Keep in mind that our enemies are ANYONE WHO IS NOT JEWISH. Full story: rense.com
Bush's Methodist Church Blasts His Iraq War Plans
October 21, 2002 -- President George Bush's own Methodist church has launched a scathing attack on his preparations for war against Iraq, saying they are 'without any justification according to the teachings of Christ'.
Jim Winkler, head of social policy for United Methodists, added that all attempts at a 'dialogue' between the President and his own church over the war had fallen on deaf ears at the White House.
His remarks came as the US continued its efforts to achieve agreement on a UN resolution that would open the way for a tough programme of weapons inspections in Iraq. France is believed to be concerned that the current draft resolution might still act as a trigger for military intervention without a full Security Council debate if Iraq fails to comply. . .
The Methodist Church, he says, is not pacifist, but 'rejects war as a usual means of national policy'. Methodist scriptural doctrine, he added, specifies 'war as a last resort, primarily a defensive thing. And so far as I know, Saddam Hussein has not mobilised military forces along the borders of the United States, nor along his own border to invade a neighbouring country, nor have any of these countries pleaded for our assistance, nor does he have weapons of mass destruction targeted at the United States'. . .

Wiesenthal Center demands Recall of British Ambassador
The Simon Wiesenthal Center has sent a letter to British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw demanding that he recall 's Ambassador to Israel Sherard Cowper-Coles over controversial remarks he reportedly made last week.
Ambassador Cowper-Coles was quoted by the Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot as saying that "Israel has reduced the West Bank and Gaza Strip into a vast concentration camp."

After a brief Pause, She replied: "Six Million"
Amsterdam, -- The wife of European Central Bank President Wim Duisenberg is being sued by a prominent Dutch lawyer for alleged anti-Semitic comments, prosecutors said Friday.
The legal action filed against Gretta Duisenberg-Bedier de Prairie arose from remarks she made on Dutch radio last weekend during a pro-Palestinian rally in Amsterdam.
Duisenberg-Bedier de Prairie, who openly supports the Palestinian cause, recently began a petition against Israeli military action against the Palestinians. The radio reporter asked her how many signatures she hoped to collect.
After a brief pause, she replied: "Six million," and laughed. . .
In a recent note, Arafat suggested naming a new human rights institute after her.

Greetings from Pastor Richard in India
Last week our local Tamil Nadu government put a new law that is no one should convert any Hindus. If they do they will undergo severe punishment of 3 years imprisonment and one large rupees fine.
So they are having the plan to change the prayer Houses in to cow shed uses and they have a plan to beat pastors and kill them without any information to government. They said if one Hindu is converted to Christian or Muslim, not only is one Hindu decreasing but also one of our enemy has been increasing so kill the people who go to other religion and kill the people who are preaching the gospel.
Dear, we don't have any protection to preach the gospel but we believe when the seed dies then many seed will come through the harvest please announce this to your church to pray for us. email@example.com
Bankers Sued for Slave Reparations
It hasn't made much of a splash in the mainstream media, but the world's wealthiest, most powerful and highly respected international banking family - the Rothschilds - has been targeted in a lawsuit by African-Americans who allege that numerous Rothschild empire-related corporations profited from the African slave trade.
Neither ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN nor Fox -- all of which are owned by a clique of powerful, interconnected families and corporations with ties to the Rothschild interests -- have reported on this story.
However, on Sept. 4 a brief item appearing in The Washington Post, referencing the Reuters News Service, provided some specifics.
African-American citizens -- descendants of slaves-have filed suit against a number of major global corporations demanding reparations for reaping profits on the backs of slaves. . .
What the story in the Post did not mention -- but which is very much the case -- is that many (if not all) of the corporations targeted are corporations historically controlled by the wide-ranging international web dominated by the Rothschild family.
The diverse targets include: J. P. Morgan Chase & Co., Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc., Brown Brothers Harriman, the Loews Corp, and Lloyds of London among several others. These named corporations are all part of the Rothschild sphere of influence, which includes such wealthy families as the Bronfmans, the Reichmanns, the Belzbergs, the Newhouses, Murdochs, Sulzbergers and others. . .

The Law of the Land
October 21, 2002 -- A prison sentence for quoting the Bible in Canada? Holy Scriptures treated as "hate literature"?
That could happen if a proposed bill is passed by Parliament, according to opponents who believe it would criminalize public expression against homosexual behaviour. Churches will not be able to mention certain Scriptures. Clergy may be subjected to criminal charges if they refuse to marry homosexuals. Parents may be subjected to criminal charges if they refuse to allow their children to attend classes that teach about and promote homosexual behaviour. . .Canadian Blood Services will not be allowed to screen risk-behaviour donors.
Governments including local municipalities will be prevented from passing (even debating) sex standards laws. Full story: worldnetdaily.com
A Few Thoughts Concerning the Role(s) of Women
A thoroughly biblical understanding of the role of a woman has, I fear, been largely lost by 20th century evangelical Christianity, including most of the churches.
Why did God create the woman in the first place? God tells us that she was created to be a necessary and corresponding helper (Genesis 2:18) to her husband in "fruitfulness" and "dominion" (Genesis 1:27-28). (There is no normative biblical example to the contrary.)
Sadly, we have narrowed woman's role to that of a helper in fruitfulness (child bearing and child training) and have largely ignored her partnership in dominion. Consequently, when a woman's children (fruitfulness) are grown and gone (and because she may have no biblical vision of active grandparenting), the wife pursues her own dominion work, or she partners in dominion with a man who is not her husband. In other words, she "gets a job" outside the home working for another man. In truth, her husband is most culpable here. He married her but he has not made a place for her in his life work as God designed. Of course, he himself has been caught up in the wretched, anti-family effects of the industrial revolution, which robbed him from his children and now prevents his wife from being his helper. It is a terrible trap, which will take much sacrifice to escape if God will give us the grace and wisdom.
The answer is for the husband to formulate a life work not based solely upon his own skill set but upon the skill set of his entire household. In this manner he can include first his wife and then each of his children under his leadership in a dominion work that not only "feeds the family" but also gives his wife and children their "raison d'etre" -- their reason to be. Such a family-centered life work becomes the most successful milieu for home schooling the children since they have daily opportunity to apply their academics to real life.
Now, as to the principles violated/compromised by a wife working outside the home, there are several, but I must be brief (there are various other Scriptures that could be cited):
- The husband is no longer her provider (I Timothy 5:8, e etc.).
- The husband is no longer her protector from physical, moral or emotional harm (Genesis 20:16). As the weaker vessel, God designed her to have a protector (Numbers 30:1-16). But the workplace (even the "Christian" workplace) regularly exposes her to possible harm.
- Multiple authority/accountability is introduced (Matthew 6:10). A woman is designed to serve and to please. Her fulfilment comes from pleasing and gaining the approval of the one over her. She is designed to develop affection for the one over her. This has produced great heartache when that person is not her husband.
- An independent spirit is fostered.
- She is acting as another man's helper (Genesis 2:18).
- She is not being a "worker at home"; therefore, the Word of God is blasphemed (Titus 2:5; I Timothy 5:14).
- She violates the pattern of Christ's relationship to His church, which is to be modelled in our marriages (Ephesians 5).
- She becomes a poor role model for the younger women (Titus 2).
- She robs her husband of honor as there is no praise for her in the gates (Proverbs 31:31).
- She becomes more susceptible to negative influences outside the home, which can become a snare to her.
- She invests her heart in another man's life work -- "Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
- She often becomes unavailable for family or assembly ministry.
- Women in the workforce promotes androgyny as men view women workers as "buddies," resulting in the devaluation of the biblical role of women.
- Women in the workforce diminish the value of the dollar, making it more difficult for "one income families" to make it.
- When a wife works, the husband's vision for his family is shown to be incomplete because it does not include her.
Brother, this is a quick list, which admittedly needs much development. Some reasons you may not find immediately convincing. Yet if even ONE is true, then the role of a wife working outside the home must be reconsidered. I know you desire God's truth in your life, so I write this note NOT with a spirit of criticism but with a spirit of help and a desire to encourage you in a better way. This better way was, for the most part, the practice of godly cultures until around AD1800 when the industrial revolution began. "Ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and you shall find rest for your souls. But they said, 'We will not walk in it'" (Jeremiah 16:6).
In the bond of Christian love,

Oldest Evidence of Jesus?
Washington, October 22, 2002 -- A limestone burial box, almost 2,000 years old, may provide the oldest archaeological record of Jesus of Nazareth, experts announced Monday.
The ossuary, as the bone boxes are known, dates to AD63 and has an inscription in Aramaic which translates: "James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus," said Andre Lemaire, an expert in ancient writing who identified the box in Jerusalem last spring. . .
While most scholars agree that Jesus existed, no physical evidence from the first century has ever been conclusively tied with his life.
Two scientists from the Israeli government's geological survey tested the box last month, inspecting the surface patina and inscription under a microscope. They concurred that the object is more than 19 centuries old . . . Full story: cnn.com

I Pray that They may be One
II Peter 1:2-12, "Do you want more and more of God's grace and peace? Then learn to know Him better and they will be multiplied unto you. For as you draw nearer to Him, He will draw closer to you and His divine power will give you all things that pertain to eternal Life and holiness through the knowledge of Him Who has called us to glory and virtue. By means of these He has bestowed upon us great and precious promises whereby we too might become sharers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in this perishing world through craving after what is forbidden."
"Strive zealously, giving all diligence to obtain the divine promises, adding to your faith virtue which is Spiritual strength; and to virtue add godly knowledge through a clear understanding of the Scripture which brings wisdom to live righteously."
"In exercising knowledge develop temperance which is self-control so that your soul learns how to take mastery over the desires and passions of your mortal spirit and the sensual appetites of the flesh. And to temperance add patience which is that quality of steadfastness, constancy and endurance that ensures that you will not be moved from your deliberate purpose and loyalty to the faith and to piety by even the greatest trials and sufferings."
"In exercising patience add godliness, expressing your devotion to Him in devout conduct; holiness of character and life. In other words, be like God, gladly letting Him have His way with you. And in practicing godliness develop brotherly kindness which is the love Christians cherish for each other as brethren, enjoying one another's company. And in exercising brotherly kindness add charity which is God's own love."
God is building the individual Christian as He has built the Body of Christ's Church through the centuries. Pentecost and each of the seven Church Ages expressed one of these virtues. Now the Holy Spirit is uniting the whole by incarnating Christ's end-time Bride in love through the revelation of the fullness of the Word, so she will have His Life on display in her. This is the Token or evidence of the new birth in this day whereas in the previous dispensations the evidence was the Blood and a Mediator and one of the virtues. Our pre-eminence to the Word will enable us to manifest the Sons of God after the close of the Age.
"As these virtues become your own and increasingly abound in you, they will prevent you from being idle or unfruitful in the full personal knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But anyone who fails to diligently labor to add these virtues to their faith is blind, and short-sighted, and has forgotten that God has delivered him from his old life of sin so that he might have eternal Life, and live it more abundantly for His glory."
This verse identifies those who came to justification and sanctification but failed to diligently labor, proving all things to ensure they were in the faith, and to apply that revelation until their lives reflected the faith. These are the foolish virgin. The prize is only to the overcomer.
"Because of this, be all the more zealous to make your calling and election sure and proven: for if you do this you shall never stumble or fall away (Acts 17:11; Romans 3:4; I Thessalonians 5:21). And God will open wide the gates of heaven for you to enter into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."
"I plan to keep reminding you of these things, though you already know them, and are established in the present truth".
The peace which passes our natural understanding is the rest of God which is the new birth we receive through a clear comprehension of the present Truth whereby God may fulfil that part of His Word in our lives. We enter more deeply into His rest as we grow into the revelation of His Word and automatic obedience thereto.
Hebrews 3:19 - 4:1, 11-12, "Israel was not able to enter into God's rest because of their unbelief in His Word. Therefore, while the promise of entering into His rest still stands today, let us be afraid to distrust it, lest by guilty delay springing from unbelief in the Word of His invitation any of us should seem to come short of it. . .Let us therefore give diligence and zealously labor to enter into that rest, lest any man cease this striving and fall on the way through disobedience, alike in his conduct and his destiny to the nation of Israel on their journey through the wilderness. For the Word of God is living and full of power; It is sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and mortal spirit, and of the joints and marrow (or deepest parts of ourselves), judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart".
Jesus is the Logos or Word made manifest in virgin-born flesh, and whatever that Word says to us is full of living power and able to manifest what It has said. God's Word is creative and does not return to Him unfulfilled. It brings Life and peace to those that believe, and death and condemnation to the unbeliever. "The spoken Word shall not return to Me void, but shall accomplish that which I please, and shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent It" (Isaiah 55:11; John 3:18). God's revealed Word sits in judgment on the thoughts and intents of our hearts (Romans 2:15), enabling those of us in possession of this great and precious promise to discern between the realms of soul, mortal spirit and flesh, and to isolate whatever might be preventing us from partaking in the full benefits of God's rest.
As the Word of God pierces to the very depth of our individual being to diagnose and heal some discomfort in our body, spirit or soul, even so It discerns the Church Body for where one member is out of joint the whole Body suffers. Just as there are many parts to our bodies, so is it with Christ's Body, the Church. For we are each individual members, and it takes every one of us to make His Body complete, for we each have a different work. But we belong to each other and each member needs all of the other members (Romans 12:5; I Corinthians 12:12-27).
The Lord's Supper signifies our unity with the anointed Word and with one another through the common faith. But sometimes we need to apply the full Word in correction to ourselves where we are not in a right relationship to the other members of the Body, creating friction or even schism.
I Corinthians 10:16-17, "The cup upon which we ask the Lord's blessing, means, doesn't it, that we all participate in and share a fellowship in the blood of Christ? (For the life is in the blood, so when His blood was shed the Holy Spirit was released to quicken God's elect into that one eternal Life). And the bread which we break, does it not mean that in eating it together that we are sharing a fellowship in the benefits of the body of Christ? (For the Word was made flesh in Christ and our partaking of the bread and wine signifies our unity in the Spirit and Word of God). For no matter how many of us there are, we all eat from the same bread which represents Christ's body, showing we are all parts of the one Body of Christ".
"Because we are all one Body and the ordinance of the Lord's Supper signifies our unity, whoever eats that bread and drinks the cup of the Lord in a way that is unworthy of Him will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord, which is the living saints. This is why each man should examine himself carefully; only when he has done so and his conscience is clear should he eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discrimination is eating and drinking judgment upon himself, for he is trifling with the death of Christ and His Life in the saints. This is why many of you are weak and sick, and some have even died. For if we searchingly examine ourselves to detect our shortcomings and recognize our own condition we should not be judged and punished. But when we are judged by the Lord, we are disciplined and chastened so that we may not finally be condemned with the rest of the world. So, dear Brothers, when you gather together to eat the Lord's Supper, wait for each other so that those who feel they have somewhat to confess and make right may do so" (I Corinthians 11:27-33).
Right relationship with one another is indicative of right relationship with the Lord. Jesus taught us that when we are approaching the Presence of the Lord and learn that our Brother has a just complaint against us we are not to dismiss ill feeling from our own hearts but to be reconciled with our Brother so that he dismisses his resentment against us from his mind (Matthew 5:22-24). "And when you are praying, forgive, if you have a just complaint against any; so that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your heavenly Father forgive you" (Mark 11:25,26).
Hence the beautiful practice of the Church, to see that all differences amongst brothers and sisters in Christ are made up in the spirit of love before going to Holy Communion. As this is the highest act of worship, reconciliation though obligatory on all other occasions of worship -- must be peculiarly so then. Reconciliation is more necessary than anything else. He who neither forgives nor asks forgiveness, nor makes restitution, renders himself unworthy of the Lord's table. Let us not lose the season of grace. True repentance is painful, but salutary.
If we suffer violence and bear it patiently, we shall be able to derive advantage -- even from the injustice of men. To give and to lend are both fruits of love, even to bless our enemies, for love proves that we resemble our Father and elder Brother. If God had not loved us when we were His enemies, we should never have become His children (Romans 5:8-9). And now we should cease to recognized as children if we ceased to follow Him in love (Ephesians 5:1-2). God aims to disarm our enemies by His long-suffering and by our kindness. We should follow more closely the example of God than that of the world, with its hatred and callowness. Love toward our enemies is both an evidence of sonship and a means of strengthening it.
Luke 6:35-36, "Love your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and you shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind to the unthankful and to the evil. Therefore be merciful, as your Father also is merciful".
God rewards only such virtue of which He Himself is the beginning and the end. Too many are ready to imitate God in His punitive justice, too few in His love. He is willing to help all men and His own people share the same mind.
As we view the Great Pyramid which represents the Bible or Book of Redemption, we see how God has placed Christ's end-time Bride on the very summit of virtue. Look back! The first step upward was to do no wrong to our brother; the second, not to reward evil for evil, if he had done us wrong; the third, not to revile him but to remain silent; the fourth, to offer our own persons in order to take wrong; the fifth to offer more than the offender demands; the sixth, not to hate him who had done us wrong; the seventh, even to love him; the eighth, to do him good; the ninth, to entreat God for him. Do you now perceive the full height of Christian virtue? (John Chrysostom).
We maintain unity by serving others in gentleness and in patience, preferring our brother or sister and putting our personal 'rights' last. There is no sense in being paranoid about conflict, rather make love and unity your aim. Conflict is sometimes necessary to relieve stress and expose the causes of friction. Ask yourself, 'What would Jesus do in my situation?' That ought to cause every Christian to examine his own self, whether he is in the faith, holding his hands before God and saying, "Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: see if there be any wicked way in me, cleanse me, oh, Lord and lead me in the way everlasting" (Psalm 139:23-24). For if the righteous scarcely be saved, where will the sinner and the ungodly appear?
Now is the time to check-up. This is the time of the investigation judgment, as it was in the days of Lot. Let us tidy-up any loose ends in our lives and ensure we are free from all condemnation.
Ephesians 4:1-3, 13-15, "I beg you as one imprisoned for serving the Lord, that you live and act in a way worthy of those who have been called and chosen for such wonderful blessings. Be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other's faults because of your love. Trying always to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. . . till we all come in the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be like children, forever changing our minds with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men who teach some cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive. Instead we will lovingly follow and declare the Truth at all times, and so grow up into Him in all things, Who is the head of His Body, the Church".
Jesus said to the Pharisees, "He that is not with Me is against Me" for "Jesus knew their thoughts, and said, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand" (Matthew 12:30, 25).
We must actively pursue unity. "How pleasant it is for brethren to live together in unity" (Psalm 133:1).
We must respect authority and also submit to the leadership of our elders, pray for them, and press on the upward way, remembering always that the mind-conditioning and social mores under which most of us were raised are wrong. The children of darkness who rule this world have been engineering social change for centuries. In tandem with an increase in knowledge and travel, social degeneration has accelerated rapidly since the opening of the Seven Seals as prophesied in Daniel 12:4.   Henry Ford documented this decline, and you owe it to yourself to study what he wrote because it agrees with what the Prophet William Branham taught us.
Make God's unchanging Word your Absolute, not the expectations of your family, your school, or your culture. Since we are married to Christ the Word our duty is to please our Husband in every thing. Intimacy with our Husband by identification with His unchanging Word leads us to purity and holiness which leads to unity. In the natural a true husband and wife are accounted virgins as they are a unity of one flesh. Two may share a personal relationship, but that is less than the intimate relationship between a husband and wife who are one flesh or the intimate relationship between Christ and His Bride who are one in the faith.
So there are different types of unity however the foundation of unity must be upon the faith. I Corinthians 1:10, "Now I beseech you, brethren, by the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you; but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment".
"How can two walk together except they be agreed in the faith" (Amos 3:3)?
Unity in the faith is the fundamental basis of our relationship with God without which we share no unifying relationship with His children. Well-meaning but nominal Christians are ignorant of the faith. And because of this unbelief they know not that God is a separator, calling His own sheep by name. He knows them and their faith receives only His Voice. II Corinthians 6:14-15, "Don't be unequally yoked with unbelievers: for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion has Light with darkness? And what unity has Christ with Satan? or what part has he that believes with an infidel?"
Christians are one with Christ and their brothers and sisters by the common faith. Faith alone is their Spiritual bond. All else is natural. Ultimately, only those walking in the Light Jesus is shining now -- the present Truth -- can come under the Blood, or be born-again, because God is only writing epistles of the present Truth.
In every Age it was this unity in the revealed Word (i.e. faith) for the season and time that produced the new birth. Surely if the Holy Spirit separated the elect Israelites from among the "Jews" on the day of Pentecost it will not be the Holy Spirit that brings them together again. And if the Holy Spirit called the Lutherans, Anglicans and Presbyterians out from Catholicism whatever is reuniting them today can not be the Spirit of God. If the Holy Spirit called the Methodists and Baptists out from the Anglicans and Lutherans, It will not bring them together again. And if the Holy Spirit called the Pentecostals out from the Methodists and Baptists, the spirit trying to reunite them today is not of God.
Denominational nominal Christians are seeking unity via man-made organizations contrary to the Spirit. God did not promise revival in the end-time, but apostasy (II Thessalonians 2:3). The end-time evangelism is the Spirit calling the wise and foolish virgin out from all man-made religious systems into the fullness of the Word by the unity of the faith. From the garden of Eden Satan set out to divide and conquer Adam's race in order to destroy Michael's kingdom of the Word and faith and build his own empire by lust and knowledge. Now his religious organizations are uniting together against the Word. Their leading is carnal and not of God, Who is love, but of Satan who is hatred, bigotry and disunity.
God has set Satan's people at enmity with Adam's children. Their denominations are all re-uniting under the Roman mother church to fulfil the prophecies of Daniel and Jesus. Judaeo-Catholicism will rule the New World Order. This uniting time was foretold by Jesus in the parable of the wheat and the tares. Since the revelation of the Seven Seals, God has been separating the wheat preparatory to the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation, and bundling the denominational thorns and briars via Alpha Evangelism, the Charismatic renewal and World Council of Churches, ready for the burning (Matthew 13; 25:6; Hebrews 6:8; Revelation 18:4).
Recently a famous denominational minister of Darkness and member of parliament visited a nearby city where he spread Islamophobia among his denominational fellow-travellers. This is a typical Hegelian dialectic wherein Satan brings two opposing groups, both in his hand, into controlled conflict to bring about his predetermined purpose (against the interests of both parties).
This poor deluded minister is piping the lemmings over the cliff to their doom in the abyss. For as long as I can recall the 'hidden hand,' whose holy book states that Jesus is boiling in hot excrement (Talmud, Gittin 57a. footnote #4), has been preparing the ground of the Western imagination by creating friction between Islam and denominational Christianity in preparation for World War III. The real belligerent is this third party who stands to benefit from such antagonism. Besides, as all Bible Believers know, God told the prophet Abraham, Ishmael's people would never amount to so much as a hill of beans (Genesis 16:12). How can they, when the 'hidden hand' has divided their lands under its puppet dictators?
Christians should not fear Islam, but Judaeo-Catholicism. The 'hidden hand' behind the attacks on the World Trade Center, the bombings in Bali, the Port Arthur Massacre, Waco, the Oklahoma Bombing and other terrorist acts, is not Islam but the "synagogue of Satan". The purpose of this violent activity is to terrorise and thereby control the public, and polarize two sides which will be brought together in conflict in a brief World War III between the political Zionists who will spend Gentile blood, taxes, and loans from "Jewish" banksters by deluded Judaeo-Christians, to kill innocent equally deluded Islamists who will also fund their warfare by borrowings from the same "Jewish" banksters.
Satan has the whole world caught between the pincers of Judaeo-Zionism and Judaeo-Communism -- both financed by the tax-exempt profits of foundations that ought to be feeding the Gentile 'human cattle' who have been milked, and are controlled by a global elite who live on the benefits accrued by past generations of genuine Christians. Using revolution from below and the corruption of governments from above, they are on the brink of achieving world dominion. By this twofold political movement supported by great wealth and power in all of the great capitals of the world they control all denominational religion from the Roman Catholic church, to her (once) Protestant, now Judaeo-Christian harlot daughter churches which will soon unite in Rockefeller's World Council of Churches, and manipulate Islam along with "Jewish" 'fronts' like the Jehovah Witness, British Israel and Mormon sects.
Shortly after the earthquake that will mark the close of the Gentile dispensation with the destruction of the Dome of the Rock and Los Angeles, California, Moslems, reinforced by Judaeo-Communist Russia will attack Judaeo-Zionist Israel, and Judaeo-Communist Russia will attack and invade the United States. Anyone with eyes to read and ears to hear the current news will realize the stage is being set now. The world's religions will unite under Rome -- ostensibly to halt Communism and bring peace -- already every major religion, be it animist, Talmudic, idolatry or pseudo-Christian, has its own representative office in the Vatican -- and Rome shall rule the world.
Satan has united those who falsely imagine themselves to be 'God's church' against the Word of God so that church and state could unite to destroy the real people of God. But God will take the end-time Bride Home unharmed. Then Satan will use the false church to martyr the foolish virgin and the elect Israelites.
At this time, Satan, having been cast out from heaven will have incarnate the Pope, and he will bring peace through the UN whose purpose is to facilitate world hegemony. The purpose of this war, which, like the first and second World Wars, was determined in 1871, is to move humanity into the first stage of the totalitarian one world government Satan offered Jesus in Matthew 4:8-9. Because the universal restraining influence of the Holy Spirit will be absent following the translation of Christ's Bride (II Thessalonians 2:7), the destruction of the central authority of Rome after the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week bring the physical Serpent's seed, Judaeo-Communists, atheists, nihilists, and anarchists in revolution against the various groups of the "saved," culminating in Armageddon.
Right now Christ is uniting Himself with His Bride, until He and the Church are one in the agreement of faith. I Peter 3:8, "be all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous". This unity became possible by the revelation of the Seven Seals which finished the mystery of God that was hidden in the Word, and restored the apostolic faith that we might enter the rest of God the denominations, like Israel, have rejected through unbelief, and escape the terrors soon to come upon earth.
Let us take hold of the promise with both hands. ". . . Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you" (II Corinthians 13:11). nl248.htm
