1.5 Million Italians in Massive Rome Protest against Homosexual Civil Unions
ROME, May 14, 2007 Italians from across the country poured into Rome May 12 to join in a demonstration against a law that would give legal recognition to homosexual couples reports showed up to 1.7 million people overflowed the St. John Lateran piazza. Organizers initially expected to draw about 100,000.
The proposed legislation would give homosexual couples and unmarried heterosexual couples similar rights to those of married couples, stopping just short of legalizing homosexual marriage.
"Living together is not family," protester Anna Manara told the Associated Press. "A commitment such as marriage cements the bond, while other models make it easier to be together and therefore end up making it less valuable."
While the pro-family demonstration was backed by the Vatican and Italy's Catholic bishops, it was organized by lay people independently of the Church. This "mind-blowing" success of the event is an outstanding example of the power held by ordinary citizens when sufficiently mobilized in support of traditional values. . . Full story: lifesite.net
Comment: Such public action illustrates how "with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish" the alien- controlled media "send strong delusion that" amoral politicians and agnostics without the Absolute of God's Word "should believe the lie that they all might be damned who believed not the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness".
Starving the Poor
May 18, 2007 In part the price-hike threat to the food staple for Mexican workers and the poor is what we might call the ethanol effect a consequence of the US stampede to corn-based ethanol as an energy substitute for oil, whose major wellsprings, of course, are in regions that even more grievously defy international order. [Read totalitarian one world government Ed]. In the United States, too, the ethanol effect has raised food prices over a broad range . . .
The connection between instability in the Middle East and the cost of feeding a family in the Americas isnít direct, of course. But as with all international trade, power tilts the balance. A leading goal of US foreign policy has long been to create a global order in which US corporations have free access to markets, resources and investment opportunities. The objective is commonly called "free trade," a posture that collapses quickly on examination. . . Increasingly, bio fuels are likely to "starve the poor" around the world, according to Runge and Senauer, as staples are converted to ethanol production for the privileged. . .

Comment: The world has been deceived by quack science. Planets such as Uranus, Jupiter, and a few moons in our solar system have atmospheres - with Methane - but no animal or vegetable life. Oil is abionic, can occur anywhere, and is continually being generated. The new biofuel industry is a cover for slavery and depopulation. Any oil shortfall is man-made with the objective of increasing the price of "black gold," and the power and profitability of the corporations that control this resource. Without too much tinkering you car can be made to run on water . . . but of course that, too, is being monopolized and commoditized.
Gmail is nearly Immortal
Orwell's "Big Brother" is watching: not from telescreens on the walls but via the Information Super Highway. Google's relationships with government officials in all of the dozens of countries where they operate are a mystery, because Google never makes any statements about this. But here's a clue: Google uses the term "governmental request" three times on their terms-of-use page and once on their privacy page. Google's language means that all Gmail account holders have consented to allow Google to show any and all email in their Gmail accounts to any official from any government whatsoever, even when the request is informal or extralegal, at Google's sole discretion. . .

Russia accused of unleashing Cyberwar to disable Estonia
May 17, 2007 A three-week wave of massive cyber-attacks on the small Baltic country of Estonia, the first known incidence of such an assault on a state, is causing alarm across the western alliance, with NATO urgently examining the offensive and its implications. . . a row that erupted at the end of last month over the Estonians' removal of the Bronze Soldier Soviet war memorial in central Tallinn, the country has been subjected to a barrage of cyber warfare, disabling the websites of government ministries, political parties, newspapers, banks, and companies. . . a Finnish expert, told the Helsingin Sanomat newspaper that it would be difficult to prove the Russian state's responsibility, and that the Kremlin could inflict much more serious cyber-damage if it chose to.

Russian Breakthrough in EM Weapons & Radio Telescopes
Moscow, May 15, 2007 A group of Russian scientists. . . have developed a series of unique compact generators capable of producing high-energy pulses of hundreds and even thousands of megawatts.
This compares with the capacity of a major Soviet hydropower station on the Dnieper or an energy unit at a modern nuclear power plant. The new generators are sources of electromagnetic radiation rather than electricity. Their main feature is a capacity to produce enormous power in a matter of nanoseconds. The impulses can be generated with a very high frequency. . . They surpass foreign counterparts by 10 times. Depending on what facilities the EMP is directed at, the damage radius can be from several hundred meters to kilometers. Without creating a shock wave and inflicting visible damage, it destroys all enemy electronic equipment. . . electromagnetic weapons are capable of damaging radio electronic components even if they are switched off ... In several fractions of a second, it can burn down all electronic equipment at an electric power station, substation or control tower. A short intensive pulse can instantly paralyze data bases, financial centers and industrial equipment. Full story: rense.com
Strange Days, Strange Skies
Mr. Peter Draper MP
13 Fitzroy Street
Tamworth NSW 2340
Dear Mr. Draper,
The UK Ministry of Defence turned large parts of the country into a giant laboratory to conduct a series of secret germ warfare tests on the public. A government report just released provides for the first time a comprehensive official history of Britain's biological weapons trials between 1940 and 1979.
Many of these tests involved releasing potentially dangerous chemicals and micro-organisms over vast swaths of the population without the public being told. While details of some secret trials have emerged in recent years, the 60-page report reveals new information about more than 100 covert experiments. The report reveals that military personnel were briefed to tell any 'inquisitive inquirer' the trials were part of research projects into weather and air pollution.
Between 1955 and 1963 planes flew from north-east England to the tip of Cornwall along the south and west coasts, dropping huge amounts of zinc/cadmium sulphide on the population. The chemical drifted miles inland, its fluorescence allowing the spread to be monitored. In another trial using zinc/cadmium sulphide, a generator was towed along a road near Frome in Somerset where it spewed the chemical for an hour.
While the Government has insisted the chemical is safe, cadmium is recognized as a cause of lung cancer and during World War II was considered by the Allies as a chemical weapon. See anomalies-unlimited.com.

This British experimentation of yesteryear was a precursor to the practical application of chemtrail graffiti worldwide today, defacing then turning blue skies gray. Please study these URLs thoroughly: imageevent.com youtube.com carnicom.com; display their material on the Parliamentary monitors and distribute copies of our letter to members so they may personally confront their responsibility and accountability.
Clifford Carnicom has been actively involved in bringing attention to the chemtrail phenomenon. His technical background is extensive in the fields of geodetic science, advanced mathematics, computer science and the physical sciences. His website says, "Welcome to the brave new world of toxic barium skies, weather control, mind control and population control through the use of chemtrails modulated with electromagnetic frequencies generated by HAARP. Our health is under attack as evidenced by the skyrocketing rates of chemtrail induced lung cancer, asthma and pulmonary/respiratory problems. Our natural environment and planetary weather systems are under attack resulting in freak lightening strikes, bizarre weather, 20% less sunlight reaching the Earth's surface, the alarming, nearly complete collapse in certain areas of the west coast marine ecosystem and the creation of some of the largest tornadoes and hurricanes on record. Our skies are increasingly hazed over with fake barium/aluminum particulate, ethylene dibromide chemtrail clouds. Whether in the atmosphere or in the Ocean this added particulate matter is a hazard to the health of every living thing on this planet. There is a main-stream media blackout on this subject so the only way to get the word out is by word of mouth".

It is common to see chemtrails being laid overhead in your electorate, and without your assistance gray skies "ain't" gonna clear up. If you'll wipe off the clouds we'll cheer up, take off that gloomy mask of tragedy, and put on a happy face.
Please have Parliament officially inform your constitituents as to:
1. The entity operating the fleet of tanker aircraft laying chemtrails over our electorate (and worldwide).
2. By whose authority they are operating in Australia.
3. The nature of the chemical, mineral and organic material being diffused.
4. The objective of this operation.
5. Why none of this information has been widely reported to the public by government.
6. By whose authority has the media not informed the public?

Every Promise in the Book is Mine
Hebrews 10:1, "The Law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect".
Hence we see in the life and times of Joshua a shadow and type of the life of Jesus Messiah, of Brother Branham and the end-time Bride.
Deuteronomy 31:7, "Moses summoned Joshua, and said in the presence of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage: for you must go with this people to the land which the Lord has sworn to their fathers to give them; and you shall cause them to inherit it".
Joshua carried forward the work already begun by Moses who led the children of Israel "out from" Egypt and succeeded him as ruler under God in the theocratic commonwealth, bringing it to a definite conclusion by leading the nation "in to" the promised land (Deuteronomy 6:23). Until his noble witness after spying out Canaan he was "Hoshea the son of Nun," meaning 'He will save,' after this Jehovah's name was prefixed'Jehoshua'meaning 'Jehovah by him will save' (Numbers 13:8, 16). He was a type of Messiah of whom the Angel of the Lord said, "You shall call His Name JESUS (or 'Joshua'): for He shall save His people from their sins" (Matthew 1:21). Joshua saved natural Israel, leading them to defeat the natural Serpent's seed and possess the enemy's gate, as Jesus saved Spiritual Israel, leading us from the spiritual Serpent's seed of Jewish unbelief in the purity of God's revealed Word.
Joshua was already full of the Spirit when Moses commissioned him before all Israel by the laying on of hands as the Lord commanded, adopting or placing him as vice leader so Israel would obey him preparatory to his becoming chief after Moses' death (Numbers 27:18-23; Deuteronomy 34:9). Whereas the Lord spoke with Moses "face to face," Joshua was neither a lawgiver nor a prophet and was directed to seek the divine will through Eleazar the high priest and his Urim Thummim.
As one of the chief men of Ephraim he was sent to spy out Canaan; Caleb represented Judah; these two alone of the twelve spies brought a good report. At Moses' command Joshua led an army that "discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword" (Exodus 17:8-13). By this exploit Joshua rose in Moses' estimation and accompanied him "into the mount of God" (Exodus 24:13), and was at other times his minister (Exodus 33:11). This intercourse with Moses laid the foundation of his knowledge of God and confidence in Jehovah who had for the first time revealed Himself as such to Moses (Exodus 6:2-3). His confidence in God was gloriously manifested in the victory at Gibeon where for the first time God hearkened to the voice of a man, causing the sun to stand still in heaven (Joshua 10:12-15).
This shows what God's Word would do for a man under preeminence to the Law. It might be called Joshua's 'third pull' and is an earnest of the authority of Christ's end-time Bride during the manifestation of the Sons of God as witnessed in the ministry of Brother Branham, the firstfruit of "we who are Christ's at His 'parousia' Coming" (I Corinthians 15:23). At God's command he twice spoke squirrels into existence, shot and ate them; he spoke life back to a little fish, and an opossum, spoke the salvation of Sister Wright's two son, and spoke a tumor from the womb of his wife.
The Serpent's seed nations of Canaan were to be cut off utterly. In its bloodiest executions, the Israelite's sword wrought a work of mercy for all of the nations of Adam's race to the very end of the world. To men without the faith they seem of very small importance today, those perpetual contests with the Canaanites, and the Ammonites, and the Philistines, with which the books of Joshua, Judges and Samuel are almost filled. But in these contests and on the fate of one of these nations of Palestine, the destiny of Adam's race depended. The Israelites fought not for themselves alone, but for us; they did God's work; they preserved the lineage which would bear Abraham's seed, Jesus Messiah, through the Virgin, and were the ministers of blessing to all nations, even though their nation rejected the blessing of Abraham.
How did Noah feel when he realized the woman he brought with him in the ark was Serpent's seed, reproduced the seed of the Serpent? And after more than a generation of the teaching rain of Brother Branham's Message, how will those in the circle of this Message who are joined together with the physical Serpent's seed react when they realize that "as it was in the days of Noah," they have missed the rapture?
Joshua learnt to rule by obeying first; then he ruled for God, and not for self. Among the heroes of the sacred history he stands forth almost above all others, as free from self-will. He is distinguished most by his conscientious fidelity towards the Law and an imperturbably theocratic disposition. He is prudent, circumspect, where he has to act of himself, for he conducts the wars of the Lord, but unhesitating, quick, and decided where the Lord sends him. His courage is humility, his strength is faith, and his wisdom is obedient fear of the Lord. A gentle but firm disposition is proven by his sternly solemn sentence upon Achan, and the strictness with which he executes the curse upon the Canaanites. Such a union of mildness with strength, of simplicity with prudence, of humility with magnanimity is the fruit of faith, making Joshua and his work a type of Him who was to come. He led the people into the land of promise and workaday rest, but there is yet a better rest to be enjoyed, to which his Antitype and Namesake must introduce us (Hebrews 4:9).
Joshua is mentioned only twice in the New Testament. First, in Stephen's speech before the chief council, where it is said that the fathers brought in the tabernacle with Joshua into the possession of the Gentiles, whom God drove out before their face (Acts 7:45). Second, in Hebrews 4 where Paul quotes Psalm 95:7-11 in which David said, "Today, five hundred years after entering into the rest of Canaan, Israel has not yet entered into the rest of God. For if Joshua had brought them this rest, God would not have spoken of another day after this time." The conclusion is "there yet remains rest [sabbatismos] for the elect of God. For he who has entered into God's rest has also ceased from his own works, as God ceased from His." The Greek word 'sabbatismos' in verse 9 is used nowhere else in the New Testament and alludes to the eternal rest of God spoken of in Genesis 2:2, not the Hebrews' sabbath day at week's end, but the eternal sabbath after life's pilgrimage and the toils of our hard week on earth has finished. We enter this eternal sabbath by the baptism with the Holy Spirit, which is the new birth apprehended by a clear revelation of the Word for our day transforming us into living sacrifices, dead to the world but alive to the Word.
Joshua was in name and action a beautiful type of Messiah. As Joshua led the children of Israel through the Jordan into the land of Canaan, Jesus Messiah leads His believing followers finally through death into the eternal land of the Millennium, accomplishing what Moses could not affect. The Law of Moses could ensure neither peace nor blessedness to men, which Jesus and His Good News can (Romans 8:33; Hebrews 7:25). Moses led natural Israel out from Egyptian bondage; Joshua was the warrior who overcame their enemies and distributed to them their land. Jesus is the Captain of our Salvation who led Spiritual Israel from bondage under the Law and "the traditions of men which make the Law of none effect," teaching through Paul, "though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; and having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when our obedience is fulfilled" (II Corinthians 10:3-6).
Throughout the Gentile dispensation Christian warriors have fought the good fight of faith, winning our ground by defeating spiritual Serpent's seed. Brother Branham rightly divided the Word through the revelation of the Seven Seals, distributing the knowledge of our part and position in the Body by placing the individual Church Ages in the context of history so we can recognize our day and it's Message.
When Joshua divided the land he gave no possession to the tribe of Levi, "the sacrifices of the Lord God of Israel made by fire are their inheritance. . . the Lord God of Israel was their inheritance as Moses had said" (Joshua 13:14, 33; Numbers 18:20; Ezekiel 44:28). Levi types Christ's Bride.
The sacrifice we offer is our own life, being dead to the world and alive in Christ we are baptized "with the Holy Ghost and Fire" and separated from the world, not by a sword of steel, but by the Sword of the Word for our day into our position in the Body (Matthew 3:11). Only the elect of God can offer the sacrifices of the Lord, because only the elect have the revelation for their day. With natural procreation the life must pass through the body of the husband to his wife (who are one flesh); in the Spiritual, God's own Life must pass through the Body of Christ to quicken unregenerate elect from death unto Life for we are all one Body (I Corinthians 12:12-20). This was demonstrated when eternal Life passed from Peter, one member of the Body, to three thousand elect Hebrew and proselyte believers on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:41); to the elect Samaritans (Acts 8:14-17), and again to several nationalities of Gentiles in the house of Cornelius (Acts 10:44). Because Jesus had promised Peter the keys of faith to unlock the kingdom, or pass the Life of Christ by the baptism with the Holy Spirit, the ministry of regeneration could not proceed universally until he had turned the key to unfold the revelation of the Word for his day. Thereafter that Life could pass through any other member of the Body to quicken the elect in the Alpha Age.
This was confirmed in the Ephesian Age when Paul encountered certain disciples of John the Baptist who believed in Jesus Messiah through yet were not born-again. When Paul explained the faith more perfectly, introducing them to the present truth for their day God's Life passed through the Body by the spoken Word; they were baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and gloriously born-again.
In each Age God's elect are responsible for directing others to the present truth as typed in Deuteronomy 12:13-14, "Take heed to yourself that you do not offer your burnt offerings in just any place you chance upon: but only at the place which the Lord shall choose in one of your tribes, there you shall offer your burnt offerings, and there you shall do all that I command you". As Israel was to offer their sacrifice in that part of the land where the blood of the lamb and tabernacle was at that time, and not in any of the camps where it had been in the past, Christian lives must be written epistles of the Word predestinated to this hour, not impersonate the Age of Luther, Wesley, or the Pentecostals.
We must possess the revelation that quickened the saints in previous dispensations but we must understand that it can never again baptize anyone into Christ, for those members of the Body to which it was predestinated are complete. God is building the Temple of a spoken Word Body in which He will live and receive worship throughout eternity. Its foundations or feet have been laid. In vain the denominations try to create additional limbs, as if the image of God were an octopus. "God's Word will not return to Him void but will accomplish the objective for which it was sent" (Isaiah 55:11). As the Word for Laodicea created the tongue and the Word for Philadelphia produced the chest, the Word for this day is creating the capstone or intelligence. Study God's plan; don't try to build the windows and doors where the roof should be or your work will be rejected by the Great Architect.
Denominational sacrifices, like the offerings of Cain and the priests of Baal, are not consumed by the holy Fire of God in this day. Christ charged His end-time Bride to offer sacrifices made by Fire for the people, "I took the little Book out of the Angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. And I was told, You must prophesy again about many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings" (Revelation 10:10-11). Like Abel's "more excellent offering," the revelation of this open Book is vindicated by the holy Fire of the Lord.
Deuteronomy 10:8-9, ". . . the Lord separated the tribe of Levi, to bear the ark of the covenant of the Lord, to stand before the Lord to minister unto Him, and to bless in His Name, to this day. Wherefore Levi has no part or inheritance with his brethren; the Lord is his inheritance, according as the Lord your God promised him".
"To bear the ark of the Lord" is to be under the headship of the Word over your heart, as the Levites who type the elect, being separated from the worldly pursuits of their fellows, bore the Ark of the Covenant on staves over their heart where God reigns. II Corinthians 5:18-21, Colossians 1:18-24-29 and I Peter 3:8-15 reveal the Bride is a kingdom of priests who intercede by the Word of the hour to reconcile the elect who slumber or are oblivious to the glorious Light of the present truth (I Peter 2:1; Revelation 1:6; 5:10).
As "the Levites were not numbered among the other tribes" (Numbers 1:47), their antitype, the Gentile Bride, are "as the stars of heaven" that cannot be counted (Genesis 15:5). However the other twelve tribes were numbered under the Old Testament, so under the New Covenant the redeemed Israelites will number 12,000 from each tribe, all 144,000 of whom will be re-born as a nation in one day (Isaiah 66:8).
Revelation 7:9, "After John saw in a vision the sealing of 144,000 elect Israelites he beheld a great multitude that no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, standing before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands" (signifying victory Daniel 7:10; Revelation 5:11-13). This was the Gentile Bride of all Ages.
As the tribe of Levi "stood before the Lord to minister unto Him, and to bless in His Name," the members of Christ's Bride "are before the throne of God, and minister to Him day and night in His temple," which Temple we are in union with Christ (Revelation 7:15; 21:22-23).
The inheritance of God's elect is union with the revealed Word for their day and their name on the Lamb's Book of Life. The non-elect of every age judge themselves by their reaction to the Message for the elect of their Age. The possession of Christ's end-time Bride is agreement in the fullness of the revealed Word, our 'third pull' vindicating that we are the Sons of God, will raise us to faith for rapturing grace.
In Numbers 18:26-32 (Deuteronomy 14:28-29; Nehemiah 10:38-39, etc.,) Israel was instructed to tithe of their increase to the Levites because they have no worldly inheritance with them. This types the new heaven and new earth wherein "the kings of the nations of the saved" non-elect will bring the tithe of their increase to the gates of New Jerusalem for the sustenance of Christ, His Bride, and the elect of all ages (Revelation 21:25-26).
In this its secluded position the land of Israel was eminently adapted to the purpose which the people of Israel had to fulfill according to their historical vocation. On the south and east, far-stretching deserts separated Israel from contact with all other nations, on the west was the sea, which in those ancient times was little traversed, while on the north rose the protecting mountain walls of Lebanon. Here might the commonwealth of God develop itself in admirable separateness from the world, the more so as Palestine, in the soil, its climate, its fertility, answered all the conditions which are requisite for the prosperous development of a community, and for awakening love and attachment to the country, the possession of Jehovah, where His dwelling was erected (Joshua 22:19; Leviticus 25:23; Psalm 85:1).
When the Israelites forced their way into this highly favored land where once their fathers had dwelt as nomads, they found the kingdoms of Sihon and Og, east of the Jordan, and in Canaan proper, thirty-one smaller kingdoms besides the free state of Gibeon. All of these nations were physical Serpent's seed; the whole land promised to the Israelites is called "the land of the Hittites" (Genesis 10:15-19; Joshua 1:4).
When Christ's end-time Bride entered the revelation of the Message she found herself in a secluded position, separated from denominational traditions. God likens the separation of the faithful to the seclusion of a desert place (Revelation 12:6). Our understanding of the true oneness of the godhead and Scriptural water baptism clears our way ahead, while Scriptural sanctification smooths our wake astern; to port our revelation of the original sin, and to starboard the revelation of "things that are to be" keep the sea lanes free. The Prophet's Message illumines the present truth of God's Bible as the mariner's pilot book applies current data to his charts. Diligently followed they will bring the pilgrim safely to home port.
One of the first actions of the Israelites upon entering Canaan was to make a treaty with the Gibeonites without first inquiring of the Lord. This is a warning to the Church against the dissimulation of the world, which seeks admission and union with God's kingdom without faith or sanctification when it suits its own carnal advantage. These deceivers were physical Serpent's seed (Joshua 9:7; I Samuel 21:2). They are not on the Book of Life, and Israel was commanded to slay them utterly whenever they were encountered in the land (Genesis 9:24-29; Deuteronomy 7). The Gibeonites occupied land allotted to Benjamin, who in course of time made a league to defend them against the combined tribes of Israel which almost annihilated the Benjaminites. Eventually Israel and Judah hybrid their religion with paganism; God dispersed Israel, and Judah assimilated and intermarried with the physical Serpent's seed as Esau had done.
Benjamin was the last-born of Jacob's sons; the end-time Bride is his antitype, the last-born son of Christ. Right at this time ministers within the circle of this Message are in league with the people of God's curse. Jesus warned how the genuine Spirit falls upon the just and the unjust, causing false anointed ones preaching the letter of Brother Branham's end-time Message "to almost deceive the very elect if it were possible." Their followers will far outnumber Christ's little flock, but because of false teaching they will "never be able to come to the knowledge of the truth" (II Timothy 3:7).
Brother Branham said, "Only the very elect will not be fooled. The temptation will come as follows. The ecumenical move that has started on what seems such a beautiful and blessed principle (fulfilling Christ's prayer that we all might be one) becomes so strong politically that she bears pressure upon the government to cause all to join with her either directly or through adherence to principles enacted into law so that no people will be recognized as actual churches unless under direct or indirect domination of this council. Little groups will lose charters, privileges, etc., until they lose all property and spiritual rights with the people.
(Who is hand-in-glove with Rome? Who is the historical enemy of natural and spiritual Israel? Who is the architect of "political correctness," of all manner of perversions, "changing times and laws" (Daniel 7:25)? Who are the architects of "hate" legislation? Who encourages confusion of gender, "disobedience to parents; unthankful, unholy attitudes without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinence, savage behavior that despises those who are good? Who encourages men to be traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the revealed Word" II Timothy 3:1-5; Revelation 18:21-24)!
For example, right now unless the local ministerial association approves in many, if not most cities, one cannot rent a building for religious services. To become chaplains in the armed services, hospitals, etc., it is now almost mandatory to be recognized as acceptable to the trinitarian ecumenical groups. As this pressure increases, and it will, it will be harder to resist, for to resist is to lose privilege. And so many will be tempted to go along, for they will feel it is better to serve God publicly in the framework of this organization than not to serve God at all publicly. But they err. To believe the devil's lie is to serve Satan, even though you may want to call him Jehovah. But the elect will not be deceived.
Furthermore, the elect will not only be kept, but as this move becomes the "IMAGE ERECTED TO THE BEAST," the saints will be gone in the rapture. And this little delightful, winsome movement that started out in fellowship at Ephesus will become the monster of Satan that defiles and deceives the whole world. For the church system of the Roman Catholic and the Protestant in coming together will control the whole wealth of the world system and force the whole earth into its religious trap, or will kill them, by refusing them the privilege of buying and selling whereby they would make a living. This will be accomplished simply, for the harlot's daughters are all but gone back to her. In the meantime, Rome has acquired nearly all the supplies of gold. The Jews have the bonds and all the paper. At the right time, the harlot will destroy the present day money system by calling in all the paper, and demanding gold. With no gold, the system falls. The Jews will be trapped and come into the alliance, and the harlot church will take over the whole world" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 313:2-314:1).
In no Age was the Message spread by money and organization, but faith confirmed by signs and wonders, principally faith, new birth, Scriptural water baptism, new life, word of knowledge, wisdom, and all of those other gifts as you have need.
II Corinthians 6:14-18, "Be not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? What communion has light with darkness? And what concord has Christ with Belial? or what part has he who believes with an infidelm and what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be separate, says the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty".
We are called to be a separated people, yet leaders within the circle of this Message are yoking nominal believers without the Spirit together with infidels of Serpent seed lineage of the Gibeonites. Malice aforethought lurks behind such iniquity. The Prophet's Message is too plain for this to be coincidence or innocent error. The perpetrators must be reprobate because the mystery of God is finished and the elect of God cannot be deceived on the revealed Word of God.
Brother Branham wrote these words in his Bible: "It has been for some time that this first chapter of Joshua opens to me. This morning of August 7, 1957 I have been sick and nervous and I looked at a vision that was given me. I promise by God's help to be courageous from this day on".
Joshua 1:1-9, "Now after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord it came to pass, that the Lord said to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, Moses My servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, into the land which I give them. Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given to you, as I said to Moses. Your territory will be from the desert and Lebanon as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites to the great western sea."
In order to inherit God's promise, we, like Israel, must go to our place in the Word as they went to their place in the world, grasp the mettle, overcome all obstacles in the faith of our Lord God and take possession, because He has promised.
The declaration in Joshua 1:4, that God has assigned to the people of Israel its portion of the earth, is in accordance with Deuteronomy 32:8 and Acts 17:26, in which He separates Israel and marks off to the nations their bounds. This is invoked in God's government of the world, which embraces everything, the least as well as the greatest, so that all accident is excluded. That was the case, with natural Israel, when He actually gave to them the land promised to the fathers, where they might serve the Lord their God in beautiful seclusion. It is the case with Spiritual Israel, when He sent and vindicated the Prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7, and anointed our eyes of Spiritual seeing that we might find our place of rest and receive Christ's second Coming. In both cases the previous inhabitants must give way as they are not kin to the first or last Adam and have no part in redemption.
"No man will be able to oppose you all the days of your life: as I was with Moses, so will I be with you: I will not fail you, nor forsake you. Be strong and of a good courage: for you will cause this people to inherit the land, which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the Law which Moses My servant commanded you: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth; but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may be careful to do according to all that is written therein: for then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be dismayed: for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go".
Brother Branham's commission was to restore the apostolic faith once delivered by the prophet Paul (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11). When he was translated beyond the curtain of time and met the Pentecostal saints under the golden altar, He said, I preached exactly what Paul preached, "turning not from it to the right hand or to the left" The saints cried, "We're resting on that." He was also commissioned to "finish the mystery of God," which as we learned in Newsletter 475 is "Christ in you, the hope of glory." As the mystery of the Seven Seals revealed, Christ took His abode in the saints of each of the Gentile dispensations when they received a clear understanding of the Word for their day, making their lives written epistles of that part of His Word.
The Lord told Brother Branham, "If you will be sincere and can get the people to believe, not even cancer will stand before your prayer," and He was faithful who promised. As Christ was the first mature Son of those who slept, Brother Branham was the first mature Son among those who are Christ's at His 'parousia' (I Corinthians 15:23). Like the Prophet, if we are strong and very courageous, every place the soles of our feet tread shall be given to us. Footprints mean possession. Amalek and the Hittites can no longer hide behind this Message; we are in the harvest time and every plant is bearing fruit of the seed that was planted. Every promise in the Book is ours if we are careful to do according to all that is written in the little Book open in the hand of the Angel. nl476.htm
