Bible Believers' Newsletter 566
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ: we are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word and especially welcome our new subscribers and visitors who may be reading this Newsletter.
If you are not familiar with our understanding of God's unchanging Word, we follow the ministry of William Branham (1909-1965), who was the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7, whose ministry restored the apostolic faith, finished the mystery of God, and was the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6, which is the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 confirmed by the heavenly "voice" of Revelation 18:4. In his Message, "Sirs, is this the Sign of the End-Time" he enumerated eleven of the mysteries the Angel of the Lord would reveal through "the angel to the Seventh Church Age." The fourth mystery he described was that of the New Testament Church as One Body, composed of both Israelites and Gentiles, and this is the subject of the main Article is this Newsletter.
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever 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.

Kissinger sent to Russia to cut New World Order Deal
February 7, 2009 Former Reichsminister of State and Rockefeller minion Henry Kissinger was dispatched by the Obama administration to talk with Russian president Medvedev about reducing stockpiles of nuclear warheads. . . Kissinger's "consummate diplomatic skills" are well-knownover the years he has micromanaged the bombing of small and defenseless countries and is responsible for the murder of millions of people, most notably a few million Vietnamese, Cambodians, and Indonesians. It is absurd to think Obama chose Kissinger or anybody else for that matter. Obama, like all previous presidents in the modern era, is little more than a wind-up doll with notable oratory skills and a knack for reading teleprompters . . . . Of more immediate importance than any number of nuclear warheads is Russia's strategic relationship with China and Iran and its relations with Cuba, Venezuela and Brazil. . .
It is no secret, as well, the globalists are irked by Russia's nationalization of the Yukos oil-producing division. . . Now that the banksters and neolibs have managed to knock Russia and other oil-producing nations down a few notchesdue largely to artificially induced falling oil pricesit is time for them to strike a new deal with Russia as the New World Order scheme gains momentum. Thus it is fair to say Kissinger's meeting with Medvedev and Putin had less to do with nuclear stockpiles than it had to do with offering a deal the Russians may not be able to refuse. In short, Kissinger's trip was likely what it appears to bea meeting between mob bosses as they set about to carve up their respective spheres of influence.

The War on Terror is a Hoax
February 4, 2009 According to US government propaganda, terrorist cells are spread throughout America, making it necessary for the government to spy on all Americans and violate most other constitutional protections. Among President Bush's last words as he left office was the warning that America would soon be struck again by Muslim terrorists.
If America were infected with terrorists, we would not need the government to tell us. We would know it . . . The most obvious indication that there are no terrorist cells is that not a single neocon has been assassinated. . . The "war on terror" is a hoax that fronts for American control of oil pipelines, the profits of the military-security complex, the assault on civil liberty by fomenters of a police state, and Israel's territorial expansion. . . In an effort to bring Hamas under Israeli hegemony, Israel employs terror bombing and assassinations against Palestinians. Hamas replies to the Israeli terror with homemade and ineffectual rockets.
The fact that Israel and the United States carry on endless propaganda to prevent this fundamental truth from being realized indicates that it is Israel and the US that are in the wrong and the Palestinians, Lebanese, Iraqis, and Afghans who are being wronged. . . If Hamas were armed by Iran, Israel's assault on Gaza would have cost Israel its helicopter gunships, its tanks, and hundreds of lives of its soldiers.
The great mystery is: why after 60 years of oppression are the Palestinians still an unarmed people? Clearly, the Muslim countries are complicit with Israel and the US in keeping the Palestinians unarmed. . . These assertions are propagandistic justifications for killing Arab civilians and destroying civilian infrastructure in order to secure US and Israeli hegemony in the Middle East.

"Some are engaging in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes and volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves" (United States Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, April, 1997).
The greatest goal of the Illuminati is to gain total control over the entire world population! That is why they have invested billions towards this goal. They have several secret projects, among which are mind, physical and economic control of the world. One of these projects takes place at a military base in the wilderness of Alaska, northeast of Anchorage, near Gakona. This project bears the official name High-frequency Active Aurora Research Program (HAARP).
According to the official HAARP website, this project is about scientific research focused on studying the qualities and behaviour of the ionosphere. With this research, special emphasis was placed on the application of communication and observation systems for civil and defensive purposes.5 The description of the patent right, however, stated an entirely different research aim: "Method and equipment to change the atmosphere, ionosphere and the sphere of power regionally."
Project HAARP takes part in committing some of the biggest crimes against humanity, ever. There is no justification for it, as there is also no justification for developing atomic and chemical biological weapons. The technical installation in Alaska basically consists of several functions. The most interesting one is the Ionospheric Research Instrument (an installation used to change the ionosphere). The Ionospheric Research Instrument, in jargon called 'Heater', is the most powerful high frequency transmitter ever built. The name 'Heater' refers to the most important quality of the installation; it radiates the ionosphere with enormous electrical charges that heat its top layer. To heat this layer, ten to one hundred billion watts are pumped into the atmosphere.6 Because of these electrical charges artificial Northern Lights (or Auroras) can appear under certain conditions. The most powerful heating takes place in the F-layer of the ionosphere at a height of two hundred kilometres. The partial and specific absorption of the electrical charge allows part of this charge to reflect back to earth in the form of Extreme Low Frequencies (ELF). These electromagnetic waves penetrate everythingliving and dead. By transmitting these waves and other physiological signals, the HAARP installation is able to significantly manipulate the consciousness of a large part of the world's population. Some HAARP experimental successes include the ability to:
• Alter the human psyche
• Negatively influence the health of individuals
• Disrupt human and nervous systems
• Artificially change the earth's atmosphere
There is also the ability to penetrate the air, via chemtrailing, with the help of ionospheric lenses and mirrors, together with things like toxic barium components that disrupt or shut down communication, electricity and electronic devices selected areas.
The experiments of HAARP projects also influence the migration of animals. Many dolphins, whales, sea lions and other mammals have died in the last few years. Of course the true cause of these massive deaths is not a consequence of disorientation or pollution of the seas.7 These sea-mammals have a perfect system that was disrupted by HAARP!
It is known that the HAARP project also functions as a guard, a sort of wide radar. Together with this project, they also developed new mass destruction weapons. These weapons have the same power as an atomic bomb but do not cause radioactivity.
The HAARP installation is the most powerful weapon that the Illuminati have. HAARP was not only developed to aid in the manipulation of human consciousness, for the regulated induction of pathogens, for the alterations of geophysics and ecologic systems, but also for global control of the climate. When thinking about the warming of our planet, one should especially consider the secret experiments of our invisible elite. Of course nobody will ever think of blaming HAARP for the current changes in the climate, however, the truth is that with HAARP, the top layer of the atmosphere can be artificially influenced. HAARP can:
• Change space energetically
• Relocate or block jet streams, thus changing the weather of entire areas.
• Artificially charge fault lines, causing earthquakes.
Whenever a natural disaster occurs anywhere in the world, we must ask ourselves this particular question: "Was the disaster naturally, unnaturally or artificially induced?"
HAARP changes the northern jet stream to the southern direction. This jet stream is a constant whirlwind in the top layers of the atmosphere that should circle around the North Pole. The stream has a high electrical charge and is thus the largest moving antenna in the world that defines the electromagnetic network around the earth. In the last few years it was noted that, repeatedly, the jet stream actually moved from its normal position in the north to the south. The results of these shifts are the known natural disasters. Ever since HAARP started in 1994, there has been an unprecedented chain of natural disasters worldwide. Severe earthquakes, frequently occurring hurricanes, sudden extreme changes in weather conditions, all occurred constantly and within short time spans. When we think of climate disasters such as the Tsunami, Katrina, Rita and Wilma there is no such thing as coincidence. However meteorologists are not investigating the matter.
It has been proven that HAARP can cause local disturbances by manipulating the atmosphere, causing disturbances that could never have been caused by natural weather influences. A characteristic side effect of these same manipulations is that they can cause physical and psychosomatic symptoms in humans. Strong feelings of uneasiness and anxiety, gastrointestinal problems, headaches, migraines, irradiated eyes and feelings of depression are typical symptoms of such manipulations.
More often, we hear that it's a scientific fact that our planet is warming up. Al Gore travels the world and fools us into believing that soon our planet will perish. Bribes by the elite think tank American Enterprise Institute (AEI) make sure that economists and scientists keep their mouths shut.8 There are hardly any scientists among the members of the United Nations climate panel. The few that are on board are generously rewarded for saying the things the elite want us to hear, causing the truth never to be revealed.
The Space and Science Research Center (SSRC) in Orlando, Florida is the leading independent research center in the United States, and possibly worldwide, that is focused on the next climate change. Some of the world's brightest scientists, also experts in solar physics and the next climate change are working for the SSRC. A Press Release by SSRC confirmed recent announcements by NASA that there are historic and important changes taking place on the sun's surface that will bring about the next climate change to one of a long lasting cold era. A new climate change is coming that will bring about an extended period of deep cold to the planet! We have only a few years to prepare before 20-30 years of lasting and possibly dangerous cold temperatures arrive. Given the importance of the next climate change, Director of the SSRC, John Casey was asked whether the government has been notified: "Yes, as soon as our research revealed these solar cycles and the prediction of the coming cold era with the next climate change I notified all the key offices in the Bush administration including both parties in the Senate and House science committees as well as most of the nation's media outlets. Unfortunately, because of the intensity of coverage of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and man-made global warming during 2007, the full story about climate change is very slow in getting told. These changes in the sun have begun. They are unstoppable. With the word finally starting to get out about the next climate change, hopefully we will have time to prepare. We will do our best to spread the word along with NASA and others who can see what is about to take place for the Earth's climate. Soon, I believe this will be recognized as the most important climate story of this century."9
We are not being told that the poles are not melting and that the temperature on Antarctica continues to drop. The fact that warm regions, such as Miami, are experiencing snow and extreme cold along the gulf coast is being kept out of the news. A scenario of doom is being concocted to make us fearsome and ignorant. In reality these climate changes are the result of the HAARP installations that heat the ionosphere with their gigantic antennas. Also, the cause of the monster waves on the North Sea and the unprecedented spring 2007 record-breaking heat wave (35 degrees Celsius) in Moscow, and snow in Rio de Janeiro can be trailed back to HAARP. 10
Why do our ruling elite want to control the weather?" Amongst others, the HAARP project is about creating 'weather modification techniques that trigger storms, hurricanes and earthquakes to achieve military goals.' 11 Military documents are known to subscribe the intent to use the ionosphere for defence purposes. On January 26, 2007 a small article about the American army wishing to deploy 'glazed frost' against enemy vehicles, appeared in a few newspapers. According to the Dutch newspaper Spits issued on January 26, 2007, the Darpa Research Centre of the American ministry of Defence has developed a chemical form of glazed frost that could specifically be used in dry and warm regions, such as the regions of Iraq and Afghanistan. Antiskid layers will be applied over the tires and shoes of Defence personnel to prevent them from sliding as well. A chemical form of glazed frost? We must assume that the source of this chemical can be traced back to the HAARP project. With the aid of HAARP, rain has been caused in India some time ago and snow, glazed frost and thick layers of ice in Jordan and Iraq.
Weather Warfare, namely the manipulation of weather patterns for military use is never mentioned before. However, US military documents claim that HAARP's main objective is to 'exploit the ionosphere for Department of Defense purposes.'
The Canadian professor and economist Michel Chossudovsky claims: "Weather manipulation is the pre-emptive weapon par excellence. It can be directed against enemy countries or even 'friendly nations,' without their knowledge. Weather warfare constitutes a covert form of pre-emptive war. The manipulation of climate can be used to destabilize an enemy's economy, ecosystem and agriculture (e.g. North Korea or Cuba). Needless to say it can trigger havoc in financial and commodity markets and can potentially be used as an instrument of 'insider trade' for financial gain. It has the ability of destabilizing a country's institutions. Concurrently, the disruption in agriculture creates a greater dependency on food aid and imported grain staples from the US and other Western Countries."12
In the Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025, August 1996 we can read: "In the United States, weather-modification will likely become a part of national security policy with both domestic and international applications. Our government will pursue such a policy, depending on its interests, at various levels. These levels could include unilateral actions, participation in a security framework such as NATO, membership in an international organization such as the United Nations, or participation in a coalition. Assuming that in 2025 our national security strategy includes weather-modification, its use in our national military strategy will naturally follow. Besides, the significant benefits an operational capability would provide, another motivation to pursue weather-modification is to deter and counter potential adversaries. In this paper we show that appropriate application of weather-modification can provide battlespace dominance to a degree never before imagined. In the future, such operations will enhance air and space superiority and provide new options for battlespace shaping and battlespace awareness. The technology is there, waiting for us to pull it together; in 2025 we can 'Own the Weather'."13
By now it is not only the HAARP installation in Alaska that's heating up the ionosphere. Giant transmitters can now he found on almost every continent. The general term for these installations is EISKAT. These installations are connected to each other and can immediately take over when one of them fails. Moreover, every installation has its own power supply and is, therefore, entirely independent.

With the Kobe earthquake in Japan, there was no pulsewave as in a normal earthquake. None. In 1989, there was an earthquake in San Francisco. There was no pulse wave with that one either."

Comment: The flaming inferno, cyclones and floods that have already exacted a heavy toll on life and property in Australia were very likely a product of HAARP activity and the ubiquitous chemtrails about which parliamentarians and the media remain silent yet vociferously promote the "climate change" hoax of which they are ignorant. The objective of the UN and other agencies of the 'hidden hand' is the ruination of the economies of the developed nations and massive world depopulation through famine, disease, violence and impoverishment prisonplanet.com. If the 'hidden hand' was pleased to perpetrate 'kristal nacht,' sink the Lusitania, betray and massacre naval forces in Pearl Harbour, murder thousands in 9/11, engineer the Bali, Madrid, Marriott, 7/7 and numerous other bombings, orchestrate the Port Arthur and many shopping mall and school massacres, ensure famine by mandating a percentage of ethanol in all motor fuels, they would have no compunction in murdering a couple of hundred innocent Australians.
Church protests Ohio's Gay Marriage Ban
Cleveland, January 31, 2009 Heterosexual couples exchanging wedding vows at Pilgrim Congregational will need an additional civil ceremony by a justice of the peace or a judge to make their union legal. The United Church of Christ, a 1.2 million member denomination headquartered in Cleveland, adopted a resolution supporting gay marriage at a national synod in Atlanta three years ago. . . In a different denomination, dozens of Unitarian Universalist ministers across the country, including those in Arkansas, California and Massachusetts, also have declined to sign state marriage licenses for the same reason. . .

The Mystery of the Gospel
The mystery of the Good News in Jesus Christ is the New Testament Church as One Body, composed of both Israelites and Gentiles of Adam's race (Ephesians 3:1-11; Romans 16:25; Ephesians 6:19; Colossians 4:3).
Romans 2:9-11, "Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that does evil, of the Judahite first, and also of the Gentile [in the immediate future]; but glory, honour, and peace, to every man who works good, to the Judahite first, and also to the Gentile: for there is no respect of persons with God".
Election and new birth are a mystery to many people, cloaked in superstition and the cobwebs of obscure traditions. Last week I received an email from someone who accused me of teaching salvation by works rather than faith and assured me he was born-again with the evidence of worksspeaking in tongues he cannot interpret. Then a Jew who called himself an Israelite Christian or Christian Israelite, but is neither, wrote a dissertation on the Scriptures to emphasize the superiority of what he considers the "elect" or master racea stigma when applied by the "Elders of Zion" to besmear Germany.
New birth is exclusive to an election from Adam's race regardless of nationality or colour of skin. Jesus is the last Adam; He is not the last Cain who has no kinsman Redeemer (Leviticus 25:47; Ruth 3). The new birth is the fruit of a clear revelation of the present Truth experientially living through you (I John 1:7), concomitant upon an intimate union with the Word of the hour as the natural birth is attendant upon the mutual love of your parents.
We are elect through God's foreknowledge of our unity in the faith leading us to sanctification by the Spirit unto the union of our soul with His Spirit through obedience to the revealed Word for the hour (I Peter 1:2); thus God and the soul that is joined together with God is one Spirit (I Corinthians 6:17; Genesis 2:24). God did not arbitrarily choose to love this one and not that, He sent out His Word through the members of His Body to minister to those without and by foreknowledge took note how each would exercise his free will (Malachi 3:16-17; Romans 8:28-31). When "He came to His own land His own nation did not receive Him. But to individuals who did receive Him He gave authority to become God's children, that is, to those who believe in His Name, who owe their birth neither to human blood, passion or plan, but to God" (John 1:11-13).
Faith had to find its resting place in someone, somewhere, and at the end of the antediluvian world faith found its home in the heart of Noah who preached salvation and a free mystery cruise to whomsoever would believe. After a hundred and twenty years of ministry his faith manifest in the form of an Ark yet His Message did not inspire one new crewman, only a ship load of "dumb animals." Once aboard, God shut the door and for seven days Noah's unbelieving congregation scoffed without, but in the holy convocation after the seven days when the animals were settled and Noah's servile work fulfilled, God opened the windows of heaven and Noah preached to those souls imprisoned in unbelief, having come to the place of no more repentance.
When the Hebrew dispensation ended with His crucifixion, Jesus preached to those same lost souls, vindicating the faith of the Old Testament saints and leading them from death's prison to the liberty of eternal Life (I Peter 3:18-20). Sensing the Light of PART-Word and Christ's mediation had grown somewhat dim, having expired with the Church Ages over forty-five years ago, the foolish virgin have sought to buy Baptist, Anglican, Methodist, Pentecostal, charismatic and other blends of Oil, but instead of oil they received snakes of church membership, Pentecostal joy or speaking with unknown tongues. The few who encountered this end-time Message measured it against hearsay or traditions of the world church system instead of the Absolute of God's unchanging Word, and walked away or took the "letter without the Spirit." Even now Christ's Bride is preaching to souls who are imprisoned in human reasoning.
The compliment of Noah's Ark was a mixed multitude. The wife he took with him was physical Serpent's seed, and Ham and his wife were not in the faith. Earth was repopulated by Canaan, Ham's illegitimate son by his father's wife, who was a master of technology; by the offspring of his lawful wife, and by the offspring of Shem and Japheth. By nature Ham was a practical man, as are his descendants today, while Shem was religious, and Japheth intellectual.
Election followed the family of Shemnot for racial preference since it was genetically identical to Japheth and Hambut because the family of Shem held to God and had respect to His Word so He communed with them. The families of Ham and Japheth on the other hand were more in tune with the world and they worshipped the pagan deities Ham had introduced from the other side of the Flood so there was little communication with the Lord who respected their free moral agency.
As Ham and Japheth departed from the Spirit to the world, the Lord left them to their own devices and proceeded to lead a Semitic Iraqi Gentile who had separated from his father's pagan gods to the one true God. Abram was a man of faith and trust prepared to follow the leading of his unseen God to an unseen land. The Lord promised Abram, His Seed (singular) would be heir to the world and bless all families of Adam's race, and changed his name to Abraham, which means "Father of the Gentiles" (Genesis 17:5). The gift of God's blessing followed Abraham to his elect heirs, Isaac, Jacob and His thirteen sons because of the communion of faith within that family, not their race.
As regards the election, of the thousands of Semites God called He found faith in one man from the tribe of Eber, whom He commanded, "Get out of your country, and from your [Semitic] kindred, and from your father's house, to a land I will show you" (Genesis 12:1). Among millions of Semites one man was elect. His wife was a doubter, his father was an idol-worshipping pagan, and the nephew who accompanied him was non-elect. Abram's election was not based on his Semitic race, but solely upon his faith.
This is borne out by the fact Jacob and Esau were Semitic twin brothers, Hebrew Gentiles born of the same righteous parents, but Esau, who possessed the birthright had no respect to God's promise to Abraham and marred his inheritance by marrying a Hittite and Canaanite thus his offspring by these wives was Serpent's seed and excluded from eternal Life. In 130BC, John Hyrcanus, Judah's high priest defeated and forcibly assimilated the Edomites who "were hereafter no other than Jews" (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, XIII, 9:1). An editor's footnote on this page quotes the ancient historian, Ammonius, "The Idumeans were . . . subdued by the Jews and compelled to be circumcised, and to unite into one nation, and be subject to the same laws, they were called Jews." In a few generations Judah's king was an Edomite (ibid XIV, 1:3) who tried to steal back the birthright and blessing Esau forfeited to Jacob (Genesis 27:39-41), in vain setting up a secular earthly kingdom on a professed Jewish basis to rival Messiah's Spiritual kingdom then being forerun by John the Baptist.
"Edom is in modern Jewry" (Jewish Encyclopedia, 1925 edition, Vol. 5, p. 41). Even before intermarriage this assimilation meant the majority of Jews were irredeemable Serpent's seed, hence Jesus did not live and could not walk openly in Judea "for fear of the [non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled] Jews." Election is not determined by nationality but faith. God dealt especially with the descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Israel not because of their race but because of His promise to the Fathers who imparted faith in His Word (Deuteronomy 7:6-8). Jesus told Shem, Spiritually and through the fulfillment of Genesis 9:27, "The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a (Gk. 'ethnos' or Gentile) nation, bringing forth the fruits of His vineyard" (Matthew 21:43). That is, a people with the faith of Abraham (Galatians 3:26-29).
Paul said, "Concerning the [mystery of] the Good News [that is, of the New Testament Church as One Body, composed of both Israelites and Gentiles of Adam's race] the Israelites are enemies of the Gospel and therefore regarded by God and also His messengers as adversaries so that you Gentiles might be partakers of His promise to Abraham: but so far as the elect Israelites are concerned, they are beloved because of His promises to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and if God's promise to Abraham's natural seed is abrogated, the promise to His Spiritual Seed is of little force" (Romans 11:28).
Had the Lord not abandoned the mixed multitude of mainly Edomite Jews to their conceit of self-righteous racial arrogance and religious pride built upon the lewd perversion of Pharisaism, they would have twisted the Gospel revelation as they had strangled the truth of Moses and the prophets, and the Light of God's Word would never have shone on we Gentiles.
Nominal Christians have become gentrifiedswept and garnished with an outward display of the fruits of the Spirit absent within (Matthew 12:43-45). Gullible and naive but "materially rich and in need of nothing, they are inwardly wretched and miserable, Spiritually bankrupt, blind to the faith, naked of the Blood and know it not" (Revelation 3:17-20). Because they have become slothful they are content to hear the secondhand religion of blind leaders of the blind who impart personal bias and presuppositions regarding what the Bible says of Israel and the so-called Jews.
To illustrate, last week I heard an interview with a Roman Catholic who belongs to the Council of Christians and Jews. But to what purpose, since he called himself a Christian? Talmudic Judaism is Pharisaism, which is antithetical to Moses and the prophets and condemned by both Testaments. Jesus denounced the Pharisees as "blind fools and hypocrites, the children of hell whose fathers murdered Abel" (Matthew 15:9; 23). This chap does not realize that the Gentile dispensation will end when the last predestinated Israelite or Gentile is baptized into the One Body of Christ. He is no friend of the blind Jews if he does not lead them out of their ditch. But how can the blind deceived by one secondhand religion aid the blind of another secondhand religion?
Many ministers of the Gospel are enemies of the cross of Christ, and the Jews are our enemies whether we realize it or not (Philippians 3:18; Romans 11:28). They work in secretive ways to disrupt, and inject false understanding of the Scriptures. They have had more influence on our eschatology than we have had on theirs, and more influence on our beliefs about Jesus Messiah than we have had on their understanding as will be clear if you compare the fraudulent Masoretic text of your KJV Old Testament to the Septuagint, and the New Testament with your Lexicon. Much of what nominal Christians in the circle of this Message believe today is the same folly of "Jewish fables, and commandments of men that turn from the truth" withstood by Jesus, Paul and the apostolic saints. This theology, which put God in the box of the pedestal whereon they stood and led them to reject and crucify the Son of man, is leading so-called Spiritual Israel to crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put Him to an open shame (Hebrews 6:6).
When the Lord spoke to Peter in a vision in reply to the prayer and fasting of the Roman centurion, his vision was immediately confirmed, and Peter exclaimed to Cornelius, "Now I thoroughly understand the truth that God is no respecter of persons: but in every nation he who reveres Him and practices righteousness is acceptable to Him" (Acts 10:34-35).
The nation of Israel was born and raised 430 years in Egypt, the world power of that day. Eventually they were enslaved and God led out a mixed multitude with a mighty hand to inherit the land He had promised their forefather, Abraham. Their deliverance under duress saw Menephtah I, the Pharaoh of the Exodus perish in the Red Sea and a decline in the Egyptian superpower. God declared it His express purpose, in defeating this superpower by His spoken Word in the mouth of an octogenarian with naught but a stick in his hand, "to show Pharaoh His power so that His Name might be declared throughout all the earth, and to execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt" (Exodus 9:16; 12:12, etc).
When Israel went under the Law they forsook Abraham's unconditional covenant of grace for the conditional covenant of a servant subject to the blessings and cursings of Deuteronomy 28 (John 8:35). Less than ninety days out of Egypt and before Moses had descended mount Sinai with the tablets of the Law, Israel had broken her blood Covenant and the first two Commandments to worship a golden calf (Exodus 32:33). Then at Kadesh-Barnea, just eleven-days from Mount Sinai, they committed the unforgivable sin: the names of the unbelieving adults were removed from the Book of Life, and they were as lost as Pharaoh (Psalm 95:10-11; John 6:49; Jude 5). Blood membership of the nation of Israel is no indication of election, or even salvation. For as Paul explained, Abraham's Seed is singular and refers to Christ and those intimately united to Him by faitheither as His servants under the promise of the Old Covenant or as His wife born again in the Gentile dispensation under the New Covenant. So the promised blessing came only to the child of the legitimate wife, Isaac, not Ishmael. And although Laban made use of Jacob's love for Rachel, so that he took Leah first, the promised blessing came only to the child of first-loved wife, to Judah, not to Joseph (I Chronicles 5:1-2). Thus the Sceptre passed to the Tribe of Judah and to the House of David, yet Spiritual blessings did not accrue to those born of the tribe of Judah and of the House of David independent of faith.
The ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom separated from Judah, and following their defeat by Sennacherib in 721BC, Sargon dispersed them throughout the Assyrian Empire where they will remain until Daniel's Seventieth Week. At the height of its power, Babylon defeated the Southern Kingdom: the Judeans endured the Servitude and the Captivity, while their land rested under the Desolations.
When Cyrus granted permission to the Judeans to return to their own land (Ezra 1:5; 7:13), only a comparatively small number at first availed themselves of the privilege, and few belonging to the kingdom of Israel ultimately joined them under Ezra, Zerubbabel, and Nehemiah, and returned with them to Jerusalem (Jeremiah 50:4-5, 17-20, 33-35). Large numbers had settled and formed numerous colonies in different parts of the kingdom and Babylon remained the centre of Jewish scholarship until about the twelfth century AD. In AD740 Talmudic Jews from Babylon converted the vastly more populous Serpent seed kingdom of Khazaria overnight. Their intermarriage with the Judahites compounded the sin of assimilating the Edomites such that today a Semitic Jew is rare, and despised by the imposters. When the Semitic Israelites of the twelve tribes return to the homeland during the ministry of the Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11, there will only be 144,000 elect Israelites in toto.
Jeremiah, who was imprisoned, was set at liberty at the command of Nebuchadnezzar, and honorably treated on account of having foretold the destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians (Jeremiah 40:1-7). Daniel was honoured by Darius and Cyrus, having foretold their destruction of the Babylonian monarchy, and the consequent exaltation of the Medes and Persians as the new Gentile world power (Daniel 5:6). Jaddua the high priest, in the days of Alexander the Great who had intended to punish the Jews for their fidelity to Darius, met him at the head of a procession and averted his wrath by showing him Daniel's prophecy that a Grecian king should overthrow Persia, and so won Alexander's favour for the Jews. And Josephus, having foretold the victory of Vespasian and Titus, was also set at liberty, and honorably treated by the Romans. These are most eminent instances of the interposition of Divine Providence, and of the certainty of Divine predictions in the great revolutions of the four Gentile world kingdoms which will rule Jerusalem unto the consummation (Daniel 9:27; Luke 21:24).
The history of Israel records repeated backsliding and apostasies showing that one cannot become partaker of the Divine nature and overcome the corruption that is in the 'kosmos' through lust by the Law of carnal commandments. Paul asked, "Do you who boast in the Law, dishonour God by breaking the Law? For Isaiah 52:5 and Ezekiel 36:20-38 state, the Name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you" (Romans 2:23-24). One must be transformed from within by the renewing of the mind through faith, not external works (Romans 12:2). Referring to a Roman centurion, Jesus told His followers, "I have not found such great faith in all Israel" (Matthew 8:10).
Amos 3:1-3 prophesied, "The Lord has spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying, You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities. Can two walk together, except they be agreed"?
Matthew 3:7-9, "When John the Baptist saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism [only in order to strengthen their self-righteous conceit], he denounced them [as unfit and improper candidates], O generation of vipers! Who has warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bear fruit that befits repentance: and do not presume to say to yourselves, We have Abraham for our father. For I assure you, God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham".
When Israel scourged, mocked and nailed God's holy Temple to a tree He turned from that natural nation to call Spiritual Israel, "whomsoever will [of Adam's race, Israelite or Gentile], to come, and take the water of life freely." Christ in His Person, and no other, is our peace (Micah 5:4-5a; Isaiah 9:5-6; 52:7; 53:5; Zechariah 9:10; Psalm 72) and this end-time Message is His final call. In Ephesians 2:11-16 we learn His peace is defined by its antithesisthe "enmity" of the Law that separated and engendered hostility between Israelites and Gentiles and God. It was signified by a twofold wall of partition: the inner wall, severing the Israelites from entrance to the 'naos' or holy part of the temple where the priests officiated, and the outer wall or balustrade of stone which separated the court of the Gentile proselytes from access to the court of the Israelites, which it was death for a Gentile to pass (Ezekiel 44:7; Acts 21:28). Thus this twofold wall signified the Law, which both severed all men, even the Israelites, from access to God through sin, which is the violation of the Law (I John 3:4), and also separated the Gentiles from the Israelites. As the term "wall" implies the strength of the barrier, so "partition" or "fence" implies that it was easily removed by God in the dispensation of the fullness of time.
Without Christ we Gentiles were "afar off" by a distance impossible to overcome, "being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world," nor did the theoretical nearness of Israel to God make their fellowship possible. Circumcision, Mosaic Law, theocracy and promise were of no avail in changing the Israelite from a servant to a son, for each of these elements was external, whereas only the inward work of creative renewal through and in Christ can make one new man of Israelite or Gentile and reconcile one to the other and each to God in One Body by the Cross whereon the enmity was slain.
"This peace of God, which passes all understanding" is not a sensation but the possession of the tranquil state of assured salvation through Christ, fearing nothing from God and content with its earthly lot: it is the status of your soul not your state of mind (Philippians 4:7; John 12:47; I John 4:17-21). By Jesus Messiah both Israelite and Gentile have access to the Father in one Spirit and are made pillars on the foundation of the faith of the apostles and prophets building together a holy Temple of God through the Spirit, which is the mystery of the Good News in Jesus ChristOne Body, composed of both Israelites and Gentiles of Adam's race.
In Ephesians 2:16 3:11 Paul explains that he has been made a prisoner by the self-styled Jews because he has been preaching this mystery of the Good News to the Gentiles, that God's House, the New Testament Church, is One Body, inclusive of both Israelites and Gentiles. And that his ministry is directed to the Gentiles because the Lord revealed this mystery to him which in previous generations was not made known to the Old Testament prophets (Isaiah 56:6-8; 49:6) with the same explicit distinctness as it is now made known to His holy prophets and apostles (Acts 10:19-20; 11:18-21), that the Gentiles are joint inheritors, share the same Body, and are participants of promise in Jesus Messiah in the Good News, and that he was given this grace in order that he should preach the fathomless wealth of Christ to the Gentiles. And to explain to everybody that God is the saviour of the Gentiles, too, which was a secret fact from the beginning of the world hid in God who created all things (Deuteronomy 29:29).
Ephesians 3:9-11 hearkens back to chapter one where Paul describes God's resurrection and translation power which will shortly operate in us who believe as it operated in Jesus Christ, "when He raised Him from the dead and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: and has put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the Head over all things to the Church, which is His Body, the fullness of Him that fills all in all" (Ephesians 1:20-23). The purpose of Paul's preaching is therefore to show all men on earth just what is the mutual fellowship of Gentiles and Israelites with one another in the Body and with God through Christ, our Head that His manifold wisdom might be made known through the Church to "the principalities and powers in heavenly places when all of His Family, made up of both Israelites and Gentiles are seen united in His Bride in fulfillment of God's eternal purpose in Jesus Christ our Lord". nl566.htm
