Bible Believers' Newsletter 819
"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.
Last week we studied "Headship" which was a lesson on knowing your position, the responsibilities thereto and devoting yourself to diligent service in discharging your calling, whether that be as husband, wife, child, employee, or help. Just as we must recognize our day and its Message and devote ourselves to becoming written epistles read and known of all men whereby strangers will say to themselves, "I don't know who he or she is, but I can see they have been with Jesus."
Accomplishment of objectives requires evaluating priorities, assessing means then separating from the non-essential lest it becomes a hindrance. Today we consider some Scriptural instructions on personal presentation supported by numerous quotations from Brother Branham's teachings together with Bible references in our main article, "Dress Sense." In our teaching we identify Isaiah 1-5 with conditions prophesied in II Timothy 3 4, and Revelation 3:17-20 in this present junction of time between the end of the Gentile dispensation and the Day of the Lord in Daniel's Seventieth Week.
The "Full stories" on several of the news items featured this week are main articles in themselves and I encourage you to follow the links and view the videos so that you can understand what is taking place behind the scenes.
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.
Rehypothication: Naked Gold Shorts: Inside Story of Gold Price Manipulation
January 18, 2014 Having created more paper gold claims than there is gold to satisfy, the Fed has used its dependent bullion banks to loot the gold exchange traded funds (ETFs) of gold in order to avoid default on Asian deliveries. Default would collapse the fractional bullion system that allows the Fed to drive down the gold price and protect the dollar from QE.
What we are witnessing is our central bank pulling out all stops on integrity and lawfulness in order to serve a small handful of banks that financial deregulation allowed to become "too big to fail" at the expense of our economy and our currency. When the Fed runs out of gold to borrow, to rehypothecate, and to loot from ETFs, the Fed will have to abandon QE or the US dollar will collapse and with it Washington's power to exercise hegemony over the world. . .

Comment: What has happened to Germany's gold that was placed in the Federal Reserve vault? Glen Beck thinks the vault is almost empty now! I think the vault has been almost empty from day one!
The armoured truck rolls in with a shipment of gold from France, it makes the news . . . the truck leaves, but it is not empty: the truck is re-loaded with gold from Spain to be melted down and sold by the bank to whomsoever and nobody is told about that transaction! An armoured truck rolls in with gold from Japan, and that shipment makes the news. The truck leaves with gold from Germany in an apparent empty armoured truck, and nobody is told. An armoured truck rolls in with China's gold . . . and leaves 'empty' with Japan's gold, etc.
The gold comes in and the depositor gets a "certificate of deposit" . . . or certificates of deposit called Federal Reserve Notes . . . NOT REDEEMABLE IN GOLD! The gold in 'empty' trucks has been 'sold' or delivered to clandestine principals on a regular basis. Some actually have the gold in their possession which maintains the illusion. The re-melting of signature gold from each country prior to re-issue also supports the illusion. But for every one that has actual gold there are hundreds and thousands that have only certificates of deposit. youtube.com
Revelation 2:9, 13; 17:3-4, "I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan . . . I know where Satan's throne is . . . and I saw a woman [Papal Rome] sit upon a scarlet coloured beast [her global empire], full of names of blasphemy [her (once) Protestant daughter churches], having seven heads [defied Imperial Emperors . . . and the beast that was, and is not, [one pope dies and "is not," then like Israel's high priest whom he impersonates, he is succeeded by another pope and "is"] even he is the eighth deified EmperorLucifer cast down to earth incarnate in the last pope and worshipped (Revelation 13:3-8), and is of the seven, and goes into perdition (II Thessalonians 2:3-12; Revelation 6:8; 17:8) and ten horns [or Khazar black nobility of the ten nations into which Rome divided in AD476]. And the woman [Papal Rome] was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication [false worship]".
Daniel 9:26-27, "And the prince [Devil-incarnate pope] will confirm a covenant with the many Israelites and so-called Jews for one week of seven prophetic years [to refinance the Federal Reserve Jewnited States dollar with gold backing]: and in the midst of the week he will cause the sacrifice and the oblation they have restored to cease" (Revelation 13:11-18).
Brother Branham revealed that "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. 314:1).
"The false church groups will come together in a world council of churches. This world council of churches is the IMAGE ERECTED TO THE BEAST (Revelation 13:11-18). Now remember, it was Imperial Pagan Rome that fell by the sword. But she was healed of her death stroke when she joined to the nominal Christian church of Rome and incorporated paganism and Christianity [under Constantine at the First Nicaea Council in AD325 (Revelation 13:3; 17:8)], and thereby became the Holy Roman Empire which was to endure until Jesus came and destroyed her. But Rome is not going it alone. Her daughters are right with her and she will take over absolute authority by the World Council of Churches."
"This may seem farfetched to some but actually it is very plain for all to see because right now the churches are controlling politics and at the opportune time will manifest exactly how great is that control. This ecumenical move will end up with Rome at the head even though the people did not envision it that way. This is so because in Revelation 17:3-6 it states that the whore, Mystery Babylon is seated on the beast. She is controlling the last or fourth empire. [So the sixth and seventh of the seven consecutive visions God showed Brother Branhams in 1933 will not be fulfilled until after the resurrection and translation of Christ's Bride]. This Roman Church is doing that. With the world church system under her Rome will be controlling, and this image (church system) will be obedient to Rome because Rome controls the gold of the world."
"Thus all the people have to belong to the world church system or be at the mercy of the elements for they cannot buy or sell without the mark of the beast in the hand or head. This mark in the head means that they will have to take the doctrine of the world church system which is trinitarianism, etc., and the mark in the hand which means to do the will of the world church. With this great power the church systems will persecute the true bride. This image will try to keep the bride from preaching and teaching, etc. Her ministers will be forbidden to give comfort and truth to the people who need it. But before the antichrist (in person) takes over this complete world system of churches the true church will be taken away from this world to be with the Lord: God will catch away His Bride for the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb" (ibid p. 376:1).
So you see the relationship between Rome (now a church empire), the Money Power of the international self-styled Jewish banksters (now the City of London), and the Khazar Black Nobility (now European Royalty and aristocracy) is historic, and each is vying for global hegemony. "The mark of the beast" is the Babylonian trinity of Gods worshipped unbeknownst by Pharisaism since the Babylonian Captivity (now called Judaism), by their Judaeo-Roman Catholic false church and the (once) Protestant churches, and Islam which is the spawn of Jewry and their Roman church. "The mark of the beast" is not a new phenomenon but is universally believed and accepted as convention by every nation, tribe and tongue except genuine Christians restored to the apostolic faith by the ministry of Malachi 4:5-6, Matthew 17:11, Revelation 10:7 and 18:4 and yet blinded Law-abiding blood Israelites, (I did not say Jews). The mark in the right hand signifies servitude to Rome and her new world order, while the mark in the forehead signifies acceptance of Rome's trinity dogma. Almost everyone has borne the mark of the beast from the cradle to the grave through their native religion, whatever it is, although few associate it with Rome. They bear it willing now, but after Rome abrogates her covenant with the so-called Jews in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week her trinity of gods will be forced at the edge of a sword as it was through almost a thousand years of Dart Ages.
"See how that Judas spirit came back as a rider on a white horse. It was white; so close to the real, just as Judas was so close to Jesus. A crown was given to him (white horse rider). How? That spirit was now in the leader of the Nicolaitane system and he was a triple crowned pope who sat as God in his temple, calling himself the Vicar of Christ. If vicar of Christ means 'instead of Christ' or 'in place of' or 'on behalf of God' then the pope was calling himself the Holy Ghost, or deposing the Holy Ghost, acting for Him. That was the Judas spirit in him doing that. See how he conqueredgoing forth conquering and to conquer (Matthew 24:4-5; II Thessalonians 2:4; Revelation 2:2-17; 6:2; 13:18. Christ did not do that. The only ones that came to Him were already predestinated by the Father. And so on and on went that spirit and one day it will become truly incarnate in a man who will head up the World Council of Churches, just as we have been saying. And by his gold (remember Judas held the bag) he will control the whole world, and that antichrist system will own everything and try to control everybody. But Jesus will come back and destroy them all with the brightness of His coming. And their end will be the Lake of Fire" (ibid p. 378:1; also see Vatican proposes a World Government to stabilize the Financial System).
The International Jewish Community has bought Patagonia Argentina and Chile to build a Second Israel planned in 1896
January 11, 2014 A Patagonia Argentina is to unite southern part of Patagonia in Chile whose effects are in fact already working the Chilean army also previously established an underground military base in what will become the most sophisticated military complex after US Area 51.
Such a submarine base may control and destroy submarines passing through Cape Horn from the Pacific to the Atlantic.
These bases established for only a few years by the Rockefeller foundation along with what they have already in the Arctic are the largest in the Southern hemisphere. Rockefeller bases of Patagonia and the Lake District of southern Chile and Argentina are really an extensive network of tunnels and areas DUMB . . . Military and Israeli scientists doing measurements and technical studies in the area have given the go ahead for the establishment of a new Israel. DUMB Construction of the giant excavations is essential to develop underground life in a region of temperature and hostile winds in the Antarctic winter, and may later develop summer infrastructure on the surface.
Cryogenic DUMB crops are essential to the sustainability of groundwater sustainable life without depending on foreigners and adverse weather conditions for most of the year. DUMB will otherwise function as the atomic and natural disaster shelters, with pumping systems for both water and air extraction for food.
The purchase of such territories to ensure private properties which are added carte blanche for the organization itself as a country in two other countries Chile and Argentina, with its own army but also with the collaboration of both Argentine and Chilean armies.
For balance geostrategic area, Argentina has signed trade agreements with China, and the Jewish community in turn to push the British Empire to withdraw from the Falklands or dealings with China and Argentina resources in the area.
The international community, say that the countries whose sovereignty has been extinguished by the international Zionist community have not been informed of any of these plans, and that only some secret services know much about these plans and the Israeli army, Argentina and Chile are responsible for the secrecy and discretion of the project development. . .

Comment: It appears Argentina's Jewish President the late Nestor Kirchner sold his nation to the Jews who are initially building underground beneath Chile, Patagonia and Argentina as advised in Newsletter 664. And of course they want the Maldives and their wealth of oil. I understand the Bush family is building a fortress here. It seems to be designated an official nuclear warfare free zone.
Concerning Gilad Atzmon and Jewish Power
December 27, 2013 Jewish Power is the ability to get us to stop talking about Jewish Power Gilad Atzmon.
Mordecai Vanunu told us Israel killed President Kennedy because he opposed their nuclear weapons program. If anyone but Israel had organized the assassination of President Kennedy, America would have crucified the man who ordered the presidential Secret Service detail to leave their posts. In fact Americans allowed the Jewish controlled media to lie to them about Arlen Specter's Magic Bullet and also about the Zapruder film. And we even allowed Gerald Posner to peddle his book Case Closed saying that Oswald did it all by himself. And four year later in 1968 we convicted a Palestinian for shooting Robert Kennedy in the back even though he was standing in front of JFK's younger brother. That is Real Jewish Power.

Israeli WMD Institute used Soldiers as Guinea Pigs in untested Anthrax Experiment
January 16, 2014 Presumably, US medical authorities either wouldn't test human subjects with an untested vaccine or couldn't get approval to do so (remember the notorious Tuskegee experiment?). But their Israeli colleagues were more than happy to bend medical and ethical rules, especially in return for the hundreds of millions of shekels in research funding that flowed into Nes Ziona as a result. Because the subject of the experiment (anthrax that might be used as part of a terror attack) was so sensitive, those who conducted the Israeli experiment refused to tell the IDF "volunteers" (some of whom reported being pressured by their superiors to participate) the purpose of the project. They would not tell them with what they were being injected or why. They weren't warned of possible side effects (of which there were many subsequently). Further, they threatened that if participants spoke of the project they would be punished. . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
The Profession of Faith
841 The Church's relationship with the Muslims.

1271 Baptism constitutes the foundation of communion among all Christians, including those who are not yet in full communion with the Catholic Church: "For men who believe in Christ and have been properly baptized are put in some, though imperfect, communion with the Catholic Church. Justified by faith in Baptism, [they] are incorporated into Christ; they therefore have a right to be called Christians, and with good reason are accepted as brothers by the children of the Catholic Church."81
"Baptism therefore constitutes the sacramental bond of unity existing among all who through it are reborn."82 [However no Christian has communion with the Catholic church and water baptism is not new birth (Amos 3:3; Revelation 18:1-4) Ed]. Full story: vatican.va
"Representatives of the Catholic Church, Lusitano, Presbyterian, Methodist and Orthodox in Portugal will sign on the 25th in Lisbon, a declaration of mutual recognition of Baptism . . .

Comment: "And so there'll be a unionize amongst the churches, and they'll unite themselves together, form up the head of the confederation of churches, which they've already got a big UN building and every denomination is in it. And you'll either have to belong to some of those denominations or be ousted. And that's the time where we have to show our colors and be sure that we know, not a guess work, but know THUS SAITH THE LORD where you're standing. The little church has always been in the minority; it's a little bitty groupa little thread, like a red string that wipes through the Bible, but it's the Church always. And we want to remember it" (William Branham, Patmos Vision, p. 79:57).
"There will be like a union, a boycott. All such places as this here will be closed down. And you'll not be able to speak unless you got a permission or a license from this federation of churches to hold a service."
"It does that now even in the denomination. It shows where it's at. Yes, sir, you have to have it. And that's where it'll wind up at. That's my prediction, as a servant of Christ through the understanding that I have of the Word and the inspiration; that's where it'll come. . . All signs are pointing to the end. I just got through speaking on that" (William Branham, The Spoken Word is the Original Seed, p. 65:2-3).
"Let me make a prediction. I'm not prophesying. I'm predicting. I predict that in the next few years that all organization religions will be forced to take a stand. And they will have a union of churches, and a great boycott will follow this union of churches. All denominations will be forced into it: all of them. If they don't, there'll be a horrible boycott. Nearly every one of them today has not knowingly joined that World Council of Churches, selling their birthrights: Protestant brethren with the mother Catholic of Rome. They'll do that."
"You know the Bible said that the tares would be bound, bundled first. They're bundling all in one great group. The Bible said they'd make an image unto the beast. I believe it'll come to pass, that shortly, that if people do not join some organization, some church, go in, their doors will be closed" (William Branham, A Super Sign, p. 163:163).
Hebrews 2:18 3:2, "Since Jesus Messiah was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted; therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider Jesus the Apostle and High Priest of our profession. He was faithful to Him that appointed him, as Moses also was faithful in all his house".
Our profession must be a clear understanding of the revealed Word for this hour. In other words it must be faith which is the infallible mind of God in you by spiritual revelation from above (Matthew 24:26).
Late last week I was speaking with a couple and the husband said our daughter is a Christian. I replied, how can she be a Christian when she teaches Sunday school in a Baptist church that is impersonating the Philadelphian Church Age which ended in 1906? So I asked how is it that she became your daughter and received the family name.
They replied that she was born into our family. Then I asked since the natural types the spiritual, how could she possibly become a Christian in this day when she has not been baptized into Christ and has not even been baptized in His Name? The Baptists do baptize or fully immerse their candidates, but they baptize into the membership of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church and at no time have they performed Scriptural water baptism.
Since the revelation of the Seven Seals "finished the mystery of God" in 1963 Jesus Christ is not "the High Priest for the profession" of the daughter who is sincerely misguiding innocent children with the Babylonian trinity of Judaeo-Catholicism and its false water baptism (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7).
If we are following Jesus we will be "walking in the Light as He is in that Light," not impersonating the Light of a day gone by written epistles of the present Truthwhat Jesus is doing now," with the testimony that we please God" (I John 1:7; II Peter 1:12; Hebrews 11:5-6). Unless we say the right thing to God He cannot recognize us as His own and the 'third pull' will not work.
On the last Day of Passover the Lord God looked down upon Israel and saw the priests and Levites offering the Morning Sacrifice as they had for 1,400 years, and every household with its lamb to slay. He rejoiced approvingly. That evening He looked down upon the priests and Levites offering the Passover lambs for each house perfectly in order as they had for the previous 1,400 years, and smote those sincere ministers from the Book of Life because "by wicked hands they had crucified and slain" the REAL Lamb of God, naked, nailed on a Cross.
2,000 years subsequently the so-called Jews are so blinded by their rabbis they do not realize they are neither Israelites nor Semites and have no claim on the Old Covenant. They have stolen the Old Testament which with the New belongs to Israelites and Christians under the Covenant of Promise. Its antithesis, the Talmud "makes the commandments of God of no effect to them" (Isaiah 8:20; Matthew 15:9). To be sincerely WRONG can be blasphemy.
Turning to the denominations, Jesus, Paul and John prophesied in Matthew 25:1-13, Ephesians 1:10, I Thessalonians 4:14-16, Revelation 10:7 and 14:9-11 "That in the dispensation of the fullness of times [that is, after all seven Church Ages were fulfilled, and they are], that the Lord God will gather His elect in together in Christ, those which are in heaven and which are on earth." Now before there can be a resurrection He must first call the wise and foolish virgin OUT from the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church and her (once) Protestant daughter churches into the unity of the faith. He has been accomplishing this by the Message of William Branham by which He has restored the apostolic faith and finished the mystery of God (Malachi 4:5-10; Revelation 10:7). The wise virgins are making up the Capstone of the Body.
For fifty years God has been calling His people out from the once Christian denominations into "the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation" (Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19). If you reject His Word when you hear it, you cannot possibly be one of His sheep (John 10:1-5). Rather you are among "them that perish because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. [Oh, they certainly love the historical Jesus but they do not know Christ the Word proving He does not love you]. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie [Satan told Eve, "Surely God would not cause you to die; He loves you so dearly. He loves the Baptists, Anglicans, Methodists, Jews and Muslims as the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church stated above." But He does not]. That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness" (II Thessalonians 2:9-12).
January 17, 2014 Former Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio Thursday held a lunch with 15 leaders of Argentina's Jewish community, who enjoyed a kosher meal and singing in Hebrew in the very residence of Santa Marta, in the Vatican. A simple table symbolized a milestone in the history of interreligious dialogue. Something different happened Thursday in Santa Marta, where the residence of the Pope in the Vatican Francisco is located. The leader of the Jewish community who had the opportunity to attend a meeting with the leader of the Catholic Church was simply amazed. The Pope received them as his "brothers" and it became lunch at a "historic" moment. Full story: radiocristiandad.wordpress.com
Do you see how close we are to the end of the Gentile dispensation? The sinking of Los Angeles will ignite the 'hot stage' of the present war; denominational churches will unite and the wise and foolish virgins will be repressed. After a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit this little hunted and persecuted group will go to be with Jesus. Rome and Jewryboth vying for global hegemonyhave been working towards an accommodation for years as they must in order to fulfill Daniel 9:27 and Revelation 17:12-18.
Climate Change, Global Warming and the Carbon Finance Business
January 19, 2014 Man-made global warming, or as it likes to be referred to these days as 'climate change', had a grand plan in its heyday. The mythology was underpinned by a new economic model, one which hoped to monetize CO2 emissionsor more accurately, the absence of CO2. Think of Al Gore and his associates like David Blood as the Bernie Madoff of the environmental movement. They created a market which has been disintegrating from day one, including a total collapse of the Chicago Climate Exchange, but not before the principle players cashed in their shares and abandoned that hip. It's a epic story of modern day high priests and soothsayers, political hubris and pseudo-scientific largess on a scale never before seen in history. . .
In a winter during which Niagara Falls partly froze over, for only the second or third time in more than 100 years, the whine that global warming is alive, well and menacing becomes difficult to gurgle with a straight face, but it has been so profitable to proponents like Gore that we can understand why they are loath to invent a new Doom Thing. Their twin fight against climate-damaging and rapidly depleting oil, gas and coal reserves also has major real world logic problems. . .
We can note that if we treated IPCC reports as credible, its latest says decadal (10-year) warming is presently set by the group of climate scientists reporting to the IPCC at 0.09 deg C, meaning that warming of 2 deg C will need well over 200 years . . .

Mankind's Greatest Achievement: Moon Landing could never have been Hoax
January 18, 2014 NASA claims that the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has proved that the American flags are still standing at all but one of the alleged Apollo sites. In reality, all they have done is shot themselves in the foot by giving us proof that the LRO pictures have been doctored and more proof that Apollo was a fake. If the flags were indeed on the moon, they would have been destroyed by radiation and micrometeoroids decades ago. The Soviets erected their own flag outside the Mir space station in July 1991, and by September 1992 it was reduced to only two threads. It's difficult to imagine a flag lasting more than forty years on the moon, as is claimed by NASA. Dare I say it again? More evidence that the Apollo missions were a hoax . . .

How much does a Miracle Cost?
A little girl went to her bedroom and pulled a glass jar from its hiding place in the closet. She poured the change on the floor and counted it carefully. Three times, even. The total had to be exactly perfect. No chance here for mistakes.
Carefully placing the coins back in the jar and twisting on the cap, she slipped out the back door and made her way six blocks to Rexall's Drug Store with the big Red Indian Chief sign above the door.
She waited patiently for the pharmacist to give her some attention, but he was busy at the moment. Tess twisted her feet to make a scuffing noise. Nothing. She cleared her throat with the most disgusting sound she could muster. No good. Finally she took a quarter from her jar and banged it on the glass counter. That did it!
'And what do you want?' the pharmacist asked in an annoyed tone of voice? 'I'm talking to my brother from Chicago whom I haven't seen in ages,' he said without waiting for a reply to his question.
'Well, I want to talk to you about my brother,'
Tess answered back in the same annoyed tone. 'He's really, really sick . . . and I want to buy a miracle.'
'I beg your pardon?' said the pharmacist.
'His name is Andrew and he has something bad growing inside his head and my Daddy says only a miracle can save him now. So how much does a miracle cost?'
'We don't sell miracles here, little girl. I'm sorry but I can't help you,' the pharmacist said, softening a little.
'Listen' the girl said. 'I have the money to pay for it. If it isn't enough, I will get the rest. Just tell me how much it costs.'
The pharmacist's brother, a well-dressed man, was standing there. He stooped down and asked the little girl, 'What kind of a miracle does your brother need?'
'I don't know,' Tess replied with her eyes welling up. I just know he's really sick and Mommy says he needs an operation. But my Daddy can't pay for it, so I want to use my money.'
'How much do you have?' asked the man from Chicago.
'One dollar and eleven cents,' Tess answered, barely audible. 'And it's all the money I have, but I can get some more if I have to.'
'Well, what a coincidence,' smiled the man. 'A dollar and eleven centsthe exact price of a miracle for little brothers.'
He took her money in one hand and with the other hand he grasped her mitten and said 'Take me to where you live. I want to see your brother and meet your parents. Let's see if I have the miracle you need.'
That well-dressed man was Dr. Carlton Armstrong, a surgeon, who specialized in neuro-surgery.
The operation was completed free of charge and it wasn't long until Andrew was home again and doing well.
Mom and Dad were happily talking about the chain of events that had led them to this place.
'That surgery,' her Mom whispered, 'was a real miracle. I wonder how much it would have cost'.
Tess smiled. She knew exactly how much a miracle costone dollar and eleven centsplus the faith of a little child.
In our lives, we never know how many miracles we will need. A miracle is not the suspension of natural law, but the operation of a higher law.
I hope you'll keep the ball moving! Here it goes. Throw it back to someone who means something to you! A ball is a circle, with no beginning, no end. It keeps us together like our Circle of Friends.

Brother Branham often quoted from Isaiah 1 6 likening those conditions to the "lukewarm" spirit of Laodicea ruling this wicked and adulterous generation. In Jehovah Jireh Part I, #23:8, p. 16:113-114 he said, "It was all Adam to begin with. God took a rib from his side and made a woman. And He took the feminish spirit out of Adam and put it in a woman."
[So long as she was in the first Adam there was no sin, and those under preeminence in the last Adam are without sin].
"Therefore, when a woman acts masculine, there's a perversion there somewhere. And when a man wants to be a big sissy, there's something wrong somewhere. God made a man and dressed him like a man, and a woman like a woman. He ever remains them to be that way. Amen. And when you see them doing something else, there's something wrong. It's perverted. And the whole thing has become a bunch of perverts. It's exactly right. The whole race, the whole generation, it's "The whole thing's a putrefied sore," as the Bible says. "There's hardly soundness anywhere" (Isaiah 1:6). You know that's the truth. You can't find hardly any among them that go out on the street; it's hard to find a real man: sissies as I ever seen. And women, they wear trousers, cut their hair, wear lipstick, smoke cigarettes, try to be a man. What do you want to be a man for? You're supposed to be a lady".
The rise in homosexuality today is due in large part to the perversion of women who have discarded femininity and usurped the role of men. They were made so they can deceive and be deceived; our Jew-controlled governments have tempted them to sin by the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life as the incarnated Serpent tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden. Violated by the mantra, "You are entitled to equal rights; anything man can do you can do betteryou can do anything better than him," they fell hook, line and sinker. Now husbands earn half pay while government has doubled the number of taxpayers as both work. This additional security over income must please the alien banksters because the mortgages are more secure. Children are no longer raised in the home under submission to their parents, but in day care centres subject to non-Christian indoctrination in accord with government regulations that train them as "human resources" planned for that generation.
In And Knoweth it Not, p. 36:285-290 the Prophet said, "The mental faculties and reasons of men is broke down. There's no hopes. It's beyond hope. The whole thing is a puterated sore."
"The mental faculties of men, they can't make decisions. I'm not a politician. I don't . . . Neither Democrat or Republican, they're all filthy. I'm for one Kingdom and that's the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. That's all. But how in the world . . . Did you ever see a bunch of puppets like we got up there now? Like that bunch of Texans we got in there [Jewish President Lyndon B. Johnson]. Why, they say, "Whatever the people wants. If they want Communism, we'll give them Communism. If they want integration, we'll give them integration. Want segregation, we give . . . whatever." Where is men?"
"Oh, God, that's like the pulpit. Where is men? Men that's men that stands for a principle? Where is women that stands for a principle? Where is a church that stands for a principle? I ain't got a nickel's worth of time for a wishy-washy, give in, compromising spirit".
"If a woman's a woman, let her be lady. If a man's a man, let him be man. If he's a president . . . Where is our John Quincy Adams? Where's our Abraham Lincolns? Men of principle. Where's our Patrick Henry? Said, "Give me liberty or give me death." Where's a man that stands for what's right? Where's a man that's not afraid to speak out regardless if the whole world's against him, speak out for what's right, and stand for it, and die for it?"
"Where is men of integrity? Where is men with spirit? They're so wishy-washy and gaumed up till they don't know where they stand. God, let me stand with the principles of one man as a minister, the Word of Jesus Christ: "For heavens and earth will pass away, but it'll never fail. On this Rock I'll build My Church. The gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
God's Word means what it says. He made man in His own image to lead the woman as her lord, and she is to obey him in everything unless he is leading her into sin. He is to be decisive and honour his word. How can a woman have confidence to place her life in the hands of such a man? James 5:12, "Do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath: but let your affirmation be a simple yes, yes; and your denial no, no; lest you fall under judgment" (James 5:9).
A Thinking Man's Filter p. 12:73, "Oh, for the grace of God that He'd give us understanding of such great mysteries. As Paul spoke here further on down in Ephesians, speaking of the husband and wife, and said, "This is a mystery," how the women should be in respect to their husband. Even the second place, I believe it is, in the entire Bible that reverence was ever spoke to, said, the women seeing she reverence her husband, reverence her husband. Then a husband ought to live such a life before his wife that his wife could reverence him as a son of God. And if he doesn't live that kind of life, well then, 'course she wouldn't reverence him, because she knows what he's made of. But when it is a man that is reverent man, reverent and clean with his wife, and before his family, a real servant of God, then the women, children, all should respect that servant of God with a reverence".
We'll have a little "clothesline preaching" from Satan's Eden, p. 19:140-141. "She causes her Adam to lust for her. She took off the clothes that God dressed her in back in Eden for her journey through this wilderness; she took them off. She stripped herself down, when God had her wrapped all over in skins; she's begin to shave a little off each time. Now, she's back to where she was at the beginning."
[He is an original creation of the Spoken Word but the woman is a byproduct. In all other species the female is God's spoken Word, plain and has relations only for procreation whereas the male is beautiful; for instance compare a lion and a peacock with a lioness and a peahen. On the other hand the woman is beautiful and can have relations whenever she chooses while the man is plain. Proverbs 30:18-20, "There are three things which are too wonderful for me, four which I do not understand: the way of an eagle in the sky; the way of a serpent on a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid. This is the way of an adulterous woman; she eats and wipes her mouth, and says, I have done no wrong".
The woman is to dress modestly. Deuteronomy 22:5, "The woman shall not wear that which pertains to a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination to the Lord your God." God means what he said and Jesus "magnified the Law and made it glorious" (Isaiah 42:21)."Whosoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart" (Matthew 5:28).
The woman who wears shorts, slacks, jeans, short skirts that expose her knees when seated, garments that show off her form and swimming costumes, has said "yes" to every sinner man who lusts after her. Incidentally, Christians do not go mixed bathing unless they are fully clad in modest apparel. The Prophet said, "You know, if you dress like that and some sinner on the street looks at you in the wrong way, you're going to answer at the Day of Judgment for committing adultery with that sinner. You might be as virtuous to your husband as you can be; you might be as virtuous to your boyfriend, as loyal as you know how to be; but in the sight of God you're a street harlot" (The World is Falling Apart, p. 19:133)].
"A man, put on them little old sissy looking shorts, and get out here. I don't think there is much man to him. He is the biggest sissy I know of. See, she's got her perverted Adam to act like she (See?), wearing her underneath clothes. She seen what she could do out yonder when she took off all her clothes but her underneath ones; that's the shorts, of course that's a woman's underneath clothes."
"And here her Adam is wearing them now, which according to God's original Word is an abomination for a woman to put on a garment that pertains to a man, and a man put on a garment pertains to a woman: from the original Word. Think of it."
"Now he now wears her bangs also. He combs them down, puts a curler in them. Some of the most sickly sights I've ever seen in my life is some of those kids out here today with their bangs combed down like this, and colored bleached hair with some kind of peroxide something and bleach in it, and roll it in curlers making bangs. You big sissy. That's a horrible thing to say from a pulpit, but judgment begins at the house of God. You don't even know whether you're a man or woman. And I understand that our United States Army is coming out next in shorts. That's right. See what the perversion is? It is a woman's clothes, wears her bangs".
The manner in which you present yourself on the outside reflects what you are like on the inside. Not so long ago men and women, young and old, dressed smartly, and modestly. Nowadays unless they are Christians they all wear jeans, and some women wear clothes that are so tight they can't move without sinning.
And Knoweth it Not, p. 21:162, "Here's the flesh; it's weak. It's bound to. A little lady walks down the street and some young man just in his young age, when he's seventeen, eighteen, twenty years old, twenty-five, thirty, walks around in there; and this young lady comes twisting every form of body, walking with a pair of high-heeled shoes on, her dress stuck all out in front and back, and dresses that high above her knees, or a pair of shorts on . . . You know the Bible said she'd act like that? You know the Bible said that's the way she'd act, how she'd be so filthy" (Isaiah 3:16-36). Satan and his children have been working on woman for six thousand years. He has her in very high heeled shoes that pronounce the calves of her legs to arouse men to lust.
Blasphemous Names, p. 14:2-3: "I've always been accused of being hard on our sisters about wearing bobbed hair, and manicure all over their face and stuff. It isn't that I got anything against that. I don't say the woman isn't a good woman, that she's a streetwalker or something. That isn't my attitude. But it's this: when she puts so much artificial on the outside, shows there's a lot of artificial on the inside, where ought to be filled up with Christ. Because the outside always expresses what's on the inside. "By their fruits you know them." You see? And where Christ ought to be in there, and to care for other things, instead of so much artificial pomp, and, you know, green eyelids, and unhuman-looking, and all that kind of stuff . . . I just don't go for it; and I don't believe the Bible does either. So I like to be just what we are." [Jezebel is the one woman in the Bible noted for wearing cosmetics and she became dog's meat].
"Notice now, if she hasn't got any fingernails and wants to put some on, if she hasn't got any teeth and needs some, haven't got an arm and you need one, haven't got hair and you need some, you haven't got these things, that's different. But when you pull out your real good teeth, because they're just not as bright as they should be, then you done wrong. If you've got red hair and you want black, and you go down here and color it black, just because . . . You done wrong. Yeah, I think so. But the main thing . . . There's no Scripture for that. Only to bob your hair, there's Scripture for that, have plenty of that. So then, we want to insure that that's right. Now".
"Again, the kind of a woman that a man would choose will reflect his ambition and his character. If a man chooses the wrong woman, it reflects his character. And what he ties himself to shows truly what's in him. A woman reflects what's in the man when he chooses her for wife. It shows what's down in him. No matter what he says outside, watch what he marries" (Choosing a Bride, p. 10:3; I Corinthians 11:3, 7).
Brother Branham: Questions: Should a Christian woman wear simple jewelry, as necklaces or pearls?
"Well, sister, I know this means a lot to you, and it means a lot for me for you to place your confidence I'd tell you the truth. Now remember, the Bible said, "When you adorn, do not adorn with costly jewels, and pearls, and all kinds of wearing of jewelry, but let that be the adorning of a peace, and quiet, and meek spirit (which I just quoted), which is a great price before the Lord" (I Timothy 2:9).
"Now, I don't mean by that, sister, that if you had a pin . . . Now, this is me, not the Lord. If you had a pin that you wanted to wear, or a little necklace your husband give you, or maybe something like that that you wore, now, to me, I don't think that's bad. Now, that's just me. Now remember, I make myself clear; that's my opinion. But I think it's the approach to it; it's the way you do it. See? It's the motive behind it. And when you see it's getting ahold of you, then leave the thing alone. But I think if you wore your wedding ring . . . In the Bible they wore wedding rings, only it was a tablet they called it, around their head, ten pieces of coin in it, to show they were married" (COD:Q282; Luke 15:8-18).
"Today, if a woman is married, she should wear a wedding ring as a sign that she's married. That's to keep other men from having anything to do with her. They look and they see she's a married woman" (The Second Coming of the Lord, p. 11.56).
"When God gave a man a wife, He gave him the best thing He could give him outside of salvation; but when one goes to trying to take a man's place, then she's about the worse thing that he could get ahold of" (Choosing a Bride, p. 11:5).
Isaiah is generally regarded as the greatest of the Old Testament prophets prior to John the Baptist who introduced Messiah's first Coming as Paul is the greatest of the New Testament prophets prior to William Branham who introduced Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming. Because of Israel's trinitarian idolatry God revealed that He would send Shalmaneser, Sargon and Sennacherib to conquer and dissolve the Northern Kingdom by resettling her citizens throughout the Assyrian Empire where together with many Judahites they live to this day. II Kings 18:13 19:32 and Isaiah 1:7-9 describe how Sennacherib took forty-six of Judah's fenced cities but "The King of Assyria shall not come into this city [Jerusalem], nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with a shield, nor cast a bank against it." Hence Judah and Jerusalem represent the center of Isaiah's prophetic view for although they would follow Israel in trinitarian idolatry and be conquered by Nebuchadnezzar, they must continue to the consummation of life albeit under Gentile dominion to fulfill prophecy.
The whole world must necessarily focus upon Jerusalem for the Light came from Jerusalem in the east and has shone to the West will soon return to Jerusalem "for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord has said, and in the remnant [of 144,000 elect Israelites in the Land of the Covenant] whom the Lord shall call" (Matthew 24:27; Joel 2:32; Isaiah 4:2-3; Obadiah 17).
Isaiah wrote his first five chapters under Uzziah and in the year the King died he saw his vision of the millennial glory of Jesus Christ after the purging of the 144,000 elect Israelites under the Sixth Seal. These six chapters speak of Israel's past, it's present at time of writing, and future, but for us living in "the last days" it portrays the apostasy of the mixed multitude of present-day Israel and Christendom. The key to righteous living is separation unto God from the world and the things of the world (I John 2:15-17).
Isaiah 2 3 speak of Judgment, the Gentile dispensation, Israel's conversion and the millennium under the motto stolen by that Jewish criminal organization the United Nations (Isaiah 2:4). In Genesis 49:8-10 Jacob prophesied concerning Judah (which means 'praised'), "Your brethren shall praise you. You will destroy your enemies; your father's children will bow down before you." The chief among the tribes grew from a "lion's whelp" with little power to "an old lion," calm and quiet, yet still formidable. King David and his greater Son both sprang from Judah. "The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and to Him shall the gathering of the people be" (Ephesians 1:10).
This means that the name of Judah shall survive after the other tribes have lost their historical identity, but when Christ came Judah too was utterly denationalized for "the Israelites and Gentiles gathered to Him in faith and obey Him in love" for the Church consisted primarily of converted Israelites until the seventh century when Gentiles began to predominate, thus Jacob's prophecy is largely fulfilled. All that remains is for the last member of Christ's Bride and the 144,000 elect Israelites to recognize their day and its Message. Isaiah 2:2-4 and Isaiah 11 provide a full and beautiful interpretation of Jacob's prophecy which Paul quotes in Romans 15:8 -16, confirming the Blessing of Abraham pertains to an election of "whomsoever will" in Adam's race. The THUS SAITH THE LORD of these two prophets pulls the rug out from under the Jewish HOAX of British Israel/Christian Identity theology.
The spiritual and material condition of Judah in the days of King Uzziah must equate with the present day because the earthquake before which the people fled in his days is employed as a type of earthquakes that will cleave the Mount of Olives (Zechariah 14:5; Revelation 16:19) and sink Los Angeles at the close of the Gentile dispensation (Revelation 16:18; 18:21-24). For the most part of his fifty-two year reign Uzziah had been energetic, wise and pious and extended his kingdom during an era of Assyria's weakness, but lifted up in pride he sought to combine all civil and religious power in himself as king and high priest, and the Lord smote him with leprosy. Rome and the United States are moving swiftly toward the same objective saying, "I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that [spiritually] they are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked" (Revelation 3:17).
"The last days" refers to the Messianic Age of redemption and completion (Genesis 49:1; Isaiah 2:2; Micah 4:1; Acts 2:17; I Timothy 3:1; James 5:3; and II Peter 3:3). In Isaiah 2:2 and elsewhere in the Old Testament this term applies specifically to the Laodicean conditions at the very end of the Gentile dispensation and to the Day of the Lord in Daniel's Seventieth Week under the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet (Isaiah 2:12), a Dark Age of universal tribulation.
Isaiah 3:16 4:1 describes this junction of time "Horseless carriages go jostling through the broad ways [Nahum 2:4]. All these different things He said: The daughters of Zion, how they dress and walk, how that homosexuals and different things would appear [as it was in the days of Lot (Genesis 18-19; Luke 17:28-30)]. How perversions . . . Men would be given over to strong delusions and all such things as that, how to be heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, truce breakers, false accusers [II Timothy 3 4]. And some of these days, may dear brother, Jesus will come. And those who are hammering away at what they call fanaticism today, to believe in the old fashion Gospel of Christ and the Omnipotence speaking and miraculous taken place, He said, "These signs shall follow them that believe. In My Name, they'll cast out devils, speak with new tongues, or take up serpents, or drink deadly things it wouldn't harm them. If they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover. These things that I did so will you; I'll be with you always, even to the end. When these things begin to appear, lift up your head, your redemption's drawing nigh" (William Branham, Junction of Time, p. 20:142; Mark 16:17-18; John 14:12; Matthew 28:20; Luke 21:28).
"As it was in the days of Noah, miscegenation is the universal curse in this day of the 'parousia' Coming of the Son of man" (Genesis 6:1-4; Matthew 24:37) promoted Khazar self-styled Jews who have stolen and occupied the land of Israel's Covenant as it was promoted by Edomite self-styled Jews at the time of His first Coming. In the junction of time between the close of the Gentile dispensation and Daniel's Seventieth Week God has displayed His supernatural sign in the heavens and vindicated His Prophet Brother Branham with signs and wonders revealing "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday and today and forever" (Hebrews 4:12; 13:8).
"More over the Lord said, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty [that's the Church under the spirit of Laodicea in these days of material wealth and luxury as it was the Judahites in Uzziah's prosperous reign], and walk with stretched forth necks and ogling eyes, walking and mincing as they go [in consequence of step chains and ankle rings] making a tinkling with their feet."
Brother Branham recounted how his mother only ever had four or five dreams in her life, but each of them came true. "She dreamed a dream that I was standing here by the side of three steps. And I was standing preaching to everybody that they must walk up these three steps before they hit the highway. And on the highway's a little pearly-liked white line run right into the doors of heaven, to the pearly gates, and that pearl had been stretched out to the top of these steps. If that ain't my Message exactly today: justification, sanctification, and baptism of the Holy Ghost."
"Now, I was saying that a person has to come by these three steps to be able to walk that highway. And said there was a lady came by . . . had on a great big pair like they wear today, spike-heeled shoes. And she come by and I said, "Wait a minute, sister. You can't walk that highway with that." And I said, "You can't do that."
And she said, "Aw." She said, looked around at the rest of the women and said, "Don't believe him; he's a madman. (See?) Don't believe him. I'll show you I can be justified, sanctified, and filled with the Holy Ghost and still walk that." . . . I just let her go, couldn't do no more about it, couldn't stop her. And she jumped up on the highway; she looked back at the sisters and said, "See, I told you." She started to run up, and she . . . You know what the Bible said in Isaiah 3, said they'd have outstretched necks (they have to; they're pitched over. See?), mincing as (have to, have to twist) mincing as they go, making a tinkling with their heels, the daughters of Zion in the last days."
"And she started up that highway just as hard as she could run, and after while the road got narrower and narrower. She started reeling, mincing like that, and off she went. And mother said, "The horriblest screams that I ever heard in my life was that woman falling into those flames and smoke, going down, down like that." Said I turned around and said, "See? She just obeyed everything but one Word, everything but one Word. Sure, Pentecostal women can be saved, sanctified, and filled with the Holy Ghost and then fail. Absolutely."
Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word, that can be... See, see? And she failed it. And as I said (See?), she'd have went on in all right, but (See?) she failed to listen. Telling her what was ahead. And He's wrote the Gospel by the disciples, apostles, and doctrine of the apostles and prophets, and so forth, and they won't listen" (It is the Rising of the Sun, p. 29:232-239).
"Therefore the Lord will make them bald and crown their heads with a scarf [fluid scab], and cause them to suffer the greatest indignity that can befall female captives, namely to be stripped naked, and have their persons exposed" (Isaiah 20:4; Isaiah 47:3). "The Lord will remove the finery of their ankles, headbands and necklaces, ear-rings, bracelets, and spangled veils of shimmering gauze with apertures for the eyes. The turbans, and stepping chains, sashes, perfume boxes, and amulets, the signet rings, and nose jewels, festal robes, the mantles, shawls, and handbags; hand mirrors, lingerie, beautiful dresses and veils."
In COD, p. 1000:34 the Prophet said, "I know Isaiah 3, I believe it is, talked about women, how they will wear changeable apparel and everything like that; but that was pride and stuff, put-on. If you do that for pride, then it's wrong. See? Examine your heart before God. If there's no Scripture for it, and the way the Spirit leads you, you go ahead and do it. But now, when it comes to whether you should have long hair or short hair, you have long hair; that's the Bible".
"And it shall be that instead of a sweet fragrance the stink arising from their ulcers; and instead of a girdle a rope; and instead of well set hair, baldness; and instead of a rich robe, a girding of sackcloth; and a sunburnt countenance instead of beauty owing to the absence of hoods and veils while they work as captives under a scorching sun" (Song 1:6).
"Your men shall fall by the sword and your valiant men in battle. And the women groan and cry at Zion's gates awaiting mournful intelligence of their men, and being desolate, sit upon the ground." Consequently with so many more women than men "seven women will take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own clothes: only let us be called by your name, to take away the reproach [of childlessness]."
"How they changed that now. It's almost a dishonor to have a child. Now, isn't that right? You might not say amen, but it's the truth. A woman had rather pay a hundred dollars to a little old smashed-nosed dog, and give it a mother's love out here, than to fool with a baby. Now, you know that's the truth. Walk it down the street with a little sweater on it. And I seen one of the biggest clinics, I ever seen, nearly, out here, is a dog clinic. . ." (William Branham, I Am the Resurrection and Life, #52-0810A).
"Finally, Brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. Put on the full armour of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil" with the testimony that you please God (Ephesians 6:10-19; Hebrews 11:5). nl819.htm
