Fidel Castro Ruz. His Legacy will Live Forever
November 26, 2016 — Fidel Castro was the embodiment of struggles against global capitalism, committed to a World of Peace, a World of truth, where people join hands, a World of understanding, a World of tolerance and respect . . . "a man of tremendous integrity, with an acute mind and sense of humour, committed in the minute detail of his speech to social progress and the advancement of humankind, conscious of the dangers of the US-led war and the Worldwide crisis, with exceptional skills of analysis and understanding of his fellow human beings, with a true spirit of internationalism and a tremendous knowledge of history, economics and geopolitics."
Fidel's passing occurs at a time of crisis and upheaval of the World capitalist system. The World is at a critical crossroads. At this juncture of our history, most progressive movements towards socialism have been destroyed and defeated through US led wars, military interventions, destabilization campaigns, coups d’état. The socialist project in Cuba prevails despite the US economic blockade, CIA intelligence ops and dirty politics . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: Before Fidel Castro's revolution, Cuba had been controlled by the Jewish Mafia from the US, running gambling, prostitution and other criminal businesses. Commentaries on Castro and Cuba show the USA in brutal and bloody darkness not only in Cuba but throughout the world; increasingly so as it nears the union of church and state in transition to the image of the Judaeo-Roman beast of Revelation 13.
All empires need enemies of the state in order to redirect the anger of their own citizens outwards towards an evil other. Cuba effectively serves that purpose for the western hemisphere—a supposedly evil example standing up to the good empire . . . (globalresearch.ca).
Comandante Castro, a lawyer by education, with a true sense of justice for humanity, led a Revolution in his native Cuba to free his people from a brutal dictator, murderer and of course, what else, a puppet of the US, Fulgencio Batista. Fidel has essentially freed Cuba from 500 years of colonialism . . . defied Washington's multiple attempts to oust him, and more than 600 US secret service attempts to kill him . . . withstood a brutal, illegal, international blockade, initiated and also brutally enforced by Washington with sanctions against any country in the world that wouldn't follow the embargo dictate of the US, against his country for almost 60 years . . . followers will continue in his spirit fighting against capitalists cum neofascists' ruthless exploitation (globalresearch.ca).
Liberation of Aleppo . . . Relief of Escaping Imprisonment
November 29, 2016 — The prolonged dehumanization of the majority of the Syrian people, exploitation of their children as cynical props to further the NATO & Gulf state geo-political objectives in the region, overt and covert endorsement of NATO State-proxy terrorism, the tacit endorsement of economic terrorism via the illegal US/EU sanctions against Syria, all amount to crimes against Humanity and the Syrian people. The #FakeNews "regime change" cohorts are seeing their pyramid of lies being dismantled stone by stone, by the very people they have been claiming to "protect" for almost six years.
The Syrian Arab Army's remarkable east Aleppo advancement continues: Four more districts freed today, including the pivotal region of Sakhour. In the last 48 hours alone, 12 east Aleppo districts have been liberated. From one area to the next, the "moderate" terrorists are melting down. Most important news today though is the SAA's recapture of the Suleiman al-Halabi Water Pumping Station. The Aleppo water crisis is over! Since 2012, Turkish-backed "jihadists" have withheld water from Aleppo's residents as a means of blackmailing them into supporting the "revolution" . . .

Comment: In . . . the worst defeat for US-backed forces since the outset of the war for regime-change in Syria nearly six years ago, government troops, backed by forces from the Lebanese Hezbollah movement and Iraqi Shia militias, have retaken over 40 percent of eastern Aleppo, the last urban stronghold of the so-called "rebels" . . . Syrian army units have conquered 20 square kilometers out of the total of 45 square kilometers making up eastern Aleppo.
The government advance has been extremely rapid, suggesting a rout of the US-backed militias. The ground offensive follows two weeks of intense Syrian air strikes, launched after a month-long cessation of bombing by both Syrian and Russian warplanes . . . The government advance has led to tens of thousands of civilians fleeing the areas controlled by the Islamist militias for safety (wsws.org).
The Major Purveyor of 'Fake News' is the CIA-Corporate Complex
November 28, 2016 — The US corporate media, its strings pulled by the modern version of the Central Intelligence Agency's old Operation MOCKINGBIRD media influencing operation, is laughably accusing Russia of generating "fake news" to influence the outcome of the American presidential election. In a November 24, 2016, article in the CIA-connected Washington Post, reporter Craig Timberg reported: "Russia's increasingly sophisticated propaganda machinery—including thousands of botnets, teams of paid human 'trolls,' and networks of websites and social-media accounts—echoed and amplified right-wing sites across the Internet as they portrayed Clinton as a criminal hiding potentially fatal health problems and preparing to hand control of the nation to a shadowy cabal of global financiers." The Post's article is worthy of the CIA-generated propaganda spun by the paper at the height of the Cold War-era MOCKINGBIRD.
Contrary to what the Post reported about right-wing accounts of Hillary Clinton's ties to "a shadowy cabal of global financiers, the vanquished Democratic presidential nominee and her husband, via the slush fund known as the Clinton Foundation, was closely linked to a variety of "shadowy global financiers," including those who serve as executives of Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan Chase. The Clinton cabal was more at home in the gatherings of the secretive syndicates of the Bilderberg Group, Bohemian Club, and the Council on Foreign Relations than they were at labour union and student meetings . . .

Waiting for the Barbarians
November 27, 2016 — When we look back on this sad, pathetic period in American history we will ask the questions all who have slid into despotism ask. Why were we asleep? How did we allow this to happen? Why didn't we see it coming? Why didn't we resist?
Why did we allow the corporate state to strip away the rights of poor people of colour and force them to live in terror in mini-police states? Why did we build the world's largest system of mass incarceration? Did we not see that the rest of us would be next? Why did we agree that those defined by the state as terrorists could not only be deprived of their rights but be assassinated? Did we think the state would restrict itself to persecuting and murdering Muslims? Why did we remain silent as the state arrogated to itself the right to detain and prosecute people not for what they had done, or even for what they were planning to do, but for holding religious or political beliefs that the state deemed seditious? Why did we stand by and permit the state to torture? Did we not see that once rights became privileges the state would one day revoke them?
The failure of our capitalist democracy was collective. It was bred by ignorance, indifference, racism, bigotry and the seduction of mass propaganda. It was bred by elites, especially in the press, courts and academia, who chose careerism over moral and intellectual courage. Our rights as citizens were taken from us one by one. There was hardly a word of protest . . . Why didn't they challenge Barack Obama's signing into law Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act? Section 1021 overturns the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act, which prohibited the military from acting as a domestic police force. The section also permits the military to carry out extraordinary rendition of US citizens, strip them of due process and hold them indefinitely in military detention centers.
Why didn't the legal profession fight against the Obama administration's misinterpretation of the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force Act as giving the executive branch the right to order the assassination of US citizens? How did lawyers and judges allow the misuse of the Espionage Act to target and imprison whistleblowers? How did they permit the Supreme Court to define unlimited corporate contributions to electoral campaigns as a right to petition the government or a form of free speech? Why did they allow those branded as terrorists by the state, and allow poor people of colour, to be locked for years in solitary confinement or special detention centers without fair trials? Why were they silent as the state built 'black sites' around the globe, including in Chicago, to torture? . . .
Everyone will be constantly watched. The prisons will swell. Militarized police will no longer be confined to operating in marginal communities. Lethal, indiscriminate force by the state will be common. The courts will condemn with little or no evidence. The press will utterly unplug itself from reality and speak to us as if we lived in a functioning democracy . . .

Believe the Token
A token is a sign or evidence symbolizing or guaranteeing some quality or condition, and in each age there was a token. When Adam took Eve back to himself he surrendered his dominion and ours to Satan, bringing death upon all creation, but God placed His children under the token of the blood of an innocent life surrendered in their stead (Genesis 3:21-22).
When it came time for the exodus the Israelites slew a lamb without spot or blemish for each household, a type of Christ, and painted the evidence or token of the life on lintel of the door, and the Angel of death passed over all houses displaying the token but took the lives of the first-born of man, bird and beast belonging to those houses that did not have the token on display (Exodus 12). And God remained true to that Token when He manifest in virgin-born flesh to meet sin's price on Calvary as KINSMAN Redeemer for Adam's fallen race (I Timothy 3:16).
Miscegenation is accursed of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Genesis 1:11, 25-26; Deuteronomy 7:1-3; 23:2-3) yet applauded by apostate clergy and carnal politicians under the hypocritical 'politically correct' euphemism 'multiculturalism.' However miscegenation with Cain's race is genocide to Adam's race since the offspring are not in the Book of Life which is Adam's genealogy. They cannot breed back into Adam's race and are without redemption because Jesus Messiah was "the last Adam," He was not the last Cain.
In the days of Noah physical and spiritual miscegenation was universal as it is now (Matthew 24:37). "The Lord repented having made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart" because He cannot display His attributes as Saviour and Father to a hybrid race not sprung from His Word (Genesis 6:6; John 6:63). The physical and spiritual Serpent's seed are (Heb.) 'cherem,' "dedicated to destruction for the glory of the Lord." But Noah was perfect in his Adamic pedigree and faith and God instructed him to build an ark and preach salvation to all who would join his crew, yet in one hundred and twenty years Noah did not win one convert. And this is the condition of the world today. After the Flood God renewed the Adamic Covenant with Noah and gave him the token of a rainbow, a sign He will never again destroy all life by flood, and God has been true to His promise for four thousand years (Genesis 9:1-17).
When God renamed Abram (Heb.) 'exalted father,' to Abraham 'Father of nations' or 'Gentiles' (Genesis 17:1-14), He gave him the token of circumcision in the flesh signifying he and his seed were separated from the seed of the Serpent and the heathen Adamic nations unto the Lord God. And we as Christians are circumcised in heart and ears from the world unto the revealed Word (Colossians 2:11).
The saints of every New Testament dispensation received a token as the evidence of a virtue of Christ. II Peter 1:1-12, "Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them who have obtained like precious faith with us in the righteousness of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ [the one Person of God]: Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, according as His divine power has given to us all things pertaining to [eternal] Life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us to His own glory and virtue, by which He has granted to us His exceedingly great and precious promises, that by these promises you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world because of passion."
"For this very reason also, applying all diligence add to your faith virtue; and to virtue add knowledge; and to knowledge add temperance; and to temperance add patience; and to patience add godliness; to godliness add brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness add charity. For if these virtues are in you and increasing, they will render your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ neither inactive nor unproductive, while he who lacks these qualities is blind and short-sighted, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins. Therefore brethren, be all the more zealous to make your calling and election sure: for if you do this you will never fall; for in this way an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ will be liberally ministered to you."
"I will therefore always remind you of these things, though you know them, and are established in the present Truth".
For two thousand years Christ has been building His Body, the Church, "adding precept upon precept; line upon line; here a little revelation (or faith which is a clear understanding of His Word), and there a little more." His Body is His Bride of all Ages baptized into Him by"the present Truth" for her Age (I John 1:7), for the Master Builder did not pour out the fullness of the Word on the Day of Pentecost. His "first works" (Revelation 2:5) laid the foundation of faith, a clear revelation of the true Onenness of the godhead, not a second or third person but the One Person of God manifest in the virgin-born Jesus of Nazareth, to fulfil the part of our KINSMAN Redeemer and meet sin's price on Calvary. With this understanding we are obligated to repent and be baptized in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38-39).
Jesus is the Author and Beginner of the creation of God (Revelation 3:14), the first begotten in the NEW CREATION of God-men. His True Church, His Bride of all Ages is the continuation of the same creation begotten by the Spoken Word for her day quickening her soul to new Life in Christ, bringing her mortal spirit and corruptible flesh subject so that her life becomes a written epistle of that part of the Word. As the diagram shows, Christ's Body is made up of Pentecost, a holy convocation from about AD30 – 53 wherein the saints understood and held the true faith pure and undefiled, though in a small portion; Seven Church Ages of Part-Word, and the holy convocation of this present age wherein "we who are alive and remain" possess "that which is perfect," Christ, the fullness of the Word through the mysteries of the Seven Thunders which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals (I Thessalonians 4:17; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:1-7).
Following Ephesians 4:11-15 as our diagram explains, Christ's Body is patterned after "the perfect Man, unto the measure of the full stature of Christ." Unlike our first birth through passion our NEW MAN is not built from the outside of muscles, bone and mortal spirit, but from the inside of the inside, our soul, puts on the virtues or character of Jesus Christ proven by overcoming the fiery darts or Satan and trials of this earthly life by the Word of God and prayer, separated from the world unto Him.
Now as Peter taught there are seven virtues or essential qualities that make up the character of Christ and His Bride, each displaying the Token or evidence of the measure of His Life in that dispensation. As you know, "When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord lifts up a standard against him" (Isaiah 59:19). So if you study the Seven Church Ages in Revelation 2 and 3, you will note how the Adversary attacked the saints in each of those Ages and see from our diagram how the Life of Christ in the saints of each dispensation, dressed in "the whole armour of God" held the Sword of the Spirit to his throat in the firm hand of faith. We may be confronted by physical beings, but we war against the demons that rule their lives and actions (Ephesians 6:10-18).
Please bear in mind, the diagram does not represent the individual saint, but the Body of Christ of all Ages. The token of the Ephesian Church Age (AD53 – 170) was faith, the rock of revelation from Above, which is the mind of Christ in you (Matthew 16:16-18; I Corinthians 2:16). In the Smyrnean Church Age (170 – 312) God added virtue to faith, which is strength and power to rest in the surety of God's spoken Word and hold the Sword to the throat of the Enemy. In Mark 5:25-34 a certain woman who has suffered from an issue of blood twelve years and spent all she had on doctors, learning that Jesus had come, she pushed through the crowd and touched his garment believing God would heal her, and was immediately made whole. "Immediately knowing in Himself that virtue—strength, miracle-working power—had gone out of Him, Jesus turned about in the press, and said, Who touched My clothes?"
Prophesying of the Messianic age of redemption and completion Paul described the lack of character of apostate Christians, "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power [or virtue] thereof: from such turn away" (II Timothy 3:5).
The election in comparison with world population was diminishing as the Body grew, and the love of the world and the things of the world eclipsed the S_O_N Light from the Church typed by the Moon so that at the end of the Pergamean Church Age (312 – 606) spiritual darkness wrought such ignorance the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church organized in AD325 at the First Nicaea Council, produced almost a thousand years of Dark Ages in the near total eclipse of the Thyatira Church Age.
Pergamos means "thoroughly married" and the Judaeo-Roman Universal church in time the Empire of Imperial Rome morphed into the Holy (sic) Roman Empire. The enemy came in like a flood, melding Pagan Rome's Babylonian religion with Christianity, introducing the pagan trinity of gods, baptism in three Titles instead of the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, worship of the dead, a clerical hierarchy, impersonation of Jerusalem's temple worship with papal high priest, holy water, the sacrifice of the Mass and the Bible-denying Apostle's Creed (so-called).
The Spirit of God raised up and added the standard of knowledge in opposition to ignorance. Scriptural knowledge to judge good from evil, truth from error, and right from wrong. Isaiah 8:20, "To the Law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this Word, it is because there is no Light in them." Romans 3:4, "Let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That you might be justified in your sayings, and might overcome when you are judged." God added the sure knowledge of His unchanging Word as the token of His Life in the saints of the Pergamean Church Age. "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation" (II Peter 1:20; Galatians 1:8-9).
Do not doubt by mixing reasoning with your knowledge. Just Know, and trust, and obey and take God at His Word. How He will answer our prayers I do not know, but "the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much" (James 5:16). Having prayed, thank the Lord for His answer, for any guidance you might need, and wait.
In the Thyatira Church Age (606 – 1520) Satan mounted His red horse and rode forth "to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and he was given a great sword" (Revelation 6:4). He was forcing the mark of the beast, killing all who refused to worship Rome's trinity of gods, or do obeisance to the pope as will repeat over the next several years (Revelation 13:15-18). Thus the faith, which was in the heart of the saints, was lost through Judaeo-Roman Catholic martyrdom, bringing the Dark Ages upon Christendom as illustrated in the diagram. The token added into the Body in Thyatira was Temperance or self-control, bringing your mortal spirit and body subject to Christ, the Husband of your soul.
I Peter 2:11-25, "Dearly Beloved, I implore you as aliens and exiles to abstain from passions of the flesh that war against your soul. Maintain good conduct among the Gentiles, so that, although they may defame you as evildoers, they may see your good works, and glorify God in the day of visitation."
"Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution: whether it is to the Queen as supreme, or to governors as sent by her to bring criminals to justice and to encourage the well-behaved. For it is God's will that by doing right you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish men. Live as free men, yet without using your liberty to cover up wickedness, but live as servants of God. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the Queen."
"Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect; not only to the kind and gentle but also to the overbearing. For one is approved if, mindful of God, he endures pain while suffering unjustly. For what credit is it, if when you do wrong and are beaten for it you shall take it patiently? But if when you do right and suffer for it you take it patiently, you have God's approval."
"For this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in His steps. He did no sin; no guile was found on His lips. When He was reviled, He reviled not again; when He suffered, He threatened not; but trusted in Him Who judges righteously. He Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we being dead to sins, should live to righteousness. By His stripes you have been healed. For you were straying like sheep; but have now returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls".
In the Sardis Church Age (1520 – 1750) God added the virtue of patience as the token of this division of the Body. James 1:3-4, "Know this that the trying of your faith produces patience or steadfastness. But let patience have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."
Abraham was patient with God, waiting for Isaac for twenty-five years after the promise. Noah was patient for a hundred and twenty years as he laboured building his ship on top of a mountain in a time when there were no oceans and rain had never fallen on the earth. He patiently preached his prophecy to passers-by, promising salvation from the wrath to come if only they would lend a hand and join the ship's Company. Noah was steadfast and patiently testified despite the scoffers and ungodly.
God added patience to Moses' character in face of his hot-tempered wife, and when confronted by Pharaoh's magicians who were able to impersonate his 'first pull' and several plagues. Moses endured as Pharaoh's heart hardened through unbelief. Daniel's colleagues Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego exhibited patience or steadfastness for God's deliverance in Nebuchadnezzar's fiery furnace, as did Daniel in the Lion's den.
The hundred and twenty souls in the upper room patiently waited ten days for the Promise. Jesus did not tell Luke how long, but said "tarry in the city of Jerusalem, until you are endued with power from on high" (Luke 24:49).
The token of the virtuous Life of Christ added to the Body in the Philadelphian Church Age (1750 – 1906) was godliness, to be like Jesus, who is God. Like the promises and condemnations in the Messages to the angel in each of the seven Church Ages, these virtues are cumulative in the Body as it was edified or built up so that the Philadelphian Church Age should exercise faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance and patience, making the saints like God. Oh, you say, that's too much! But Jesus said, "You are Gods" (John 10:34; Psalm 82:6). "You are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect [mature, lacking nothing necessary to completeness; consummate in integrity and virtue]" (Matthew 5:58; Genesis 17:1).
Paul explained that the five-fold ministry will be with the Body "Till we all come into the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ" (Ephesians 4:13). Perfection encompasses godliness.
Then in the Laodicean Church Age (1906 - 1963) God added brotherly kindness which requires the Christian to place himself in the situation of a brother. "Peter asked Jesus, how often shall I forgive my brother who sins against me? Until seven times? And Jesus told him, I say not until seven times: but, until seventy times seven" (Matthew 18:21-22). Have faith that someday the Lord will open his heart to the revelation. Exercise steadfast patience to endure with temperance and knowledge to understand what is in his heart, meekness and longsuffering virtue in brotherly kindness.
The Church Age saints with PART Word were baptized into the Body by Christ's intercession for their ignorance of the fullness while the Book was sealed and completed in March 1963. Then Christ claimed the title deed to redemption, broke its Seven Seals, descended with the open Book and revealed the Seven Sealed mystery through His Prophet William Branham. Our first diagram showed a breach between the Body of Church Age saints and the Capstone; one can only cross that chasm through the fullness of the Holy Spirit by a clear revelation of the Message of the seventh angel which "finished the mystery of God" and introduced the second or (Gk.) parousia Coming of Christ, the fullness of the Word (Revelation 10:7).
The Body of Christ is completed by the Capstone made up of "we who are alive and remain," our Token in the Life of Christ which is Charity or agapao Love. In I Corinthians 13 Paul explained that although one may exercise all of the gifts of the Spirit, unless he is born-again and possesses God's own love, he is nothing. Redemption is over; the Church was perfected and finished in March, 1963, as was Christ's mediation; now the sleeping saints are waiting for the last member of Christ's end-time Bride to recognize their day and its Message and take their place in the headstone of the Body.
As a chain is only as strong as its weakest link so the whole stature of your being must possess and be controlled by these virtues; only then will the Token of the Life of Christ be on display. "When Jesus came into the world, He said, Sacrifices and offerings You have not desired, but a body you have prepared for Me . . . I have come to do Your will, O God" (Hebrews 10:5, 7). God wanted a people under preeminence who would fulfil His will and gather glory to Himself. Hebrews 2:10-12, "So it was right and proper that God, who made everything for His own glory, in bringing many sons to glory, should perfect the Leader of their salvation by means of sufferings. For One who makes holy and those who are made holy all have one Father, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brothers. Saying, "I will proclaim your name to My brothers; in the midst of the congregation I will praise you. And again, I will put My trust in Him. And again, Here am I and the children God has given Me".
Jesus was the first such body, the beginner and author of the NEW CREATION of God-men born of His Spirit. His Bride is the continuation of "the creation of God," the same NEW CREATION or Body wherein God will live and breathe for eternity. So we see that the Bible is the story of the One Person of God unfolding Himself or changing His form from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts to the flesh of His glorified Family.
Now hold the Token over the promise with your immoveable faith. "I assure you, He who believes on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and more than these will he do; because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My Name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My Name, I will do it" (John 14:12-14; 15:7).
Is it healing you need; concerns for a family member or loved one? Ask and you shall receive.
Luke said, "If all the things that Jesus did were written at length, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books which were written" (John 21:25). And Brother Branham said, "Just what I've seen in my own ministry, seen Him done, you couldn't pile the volumes on this platform here, if I wrote it in details, what I seen Him do, just in my own ministry—seen Him do it. See? He had more success in my ministry, than He did in His own. Now, remember, He had more success now, not me; He had. Glory. Hallelujah.
He had more success in Jeffersonville, than He did in Nazareth. He did. In that wicked city and this wicked city . . . Amen. Glory. 'Cause He could perform no miracles there, but He did here. He finally broke through here. He got it done here. He might've had to get people from somewhere else, but He got it done anyhow. So He had more success right here, than He did in Capernaum, or Nazareth in that . . . He done more miracles right here in this Tabernacle, than He did in the entire ministry on earth. That's right. He did it. Now, what about the rest of the world? Oh, my. Now, that's what He done.
Now, remember: He done. Now, I didn't say that I done (See?), 'cause I didn't do it. I just stood . . . And I just loved Him and just submitted myself to Him, and said what He said; and the Holy Spirit went to the other people, they believed what He said, and then He did the work. That's all.
If He can get all of us believing it . . . What would He do right now, if He can get us all believing it right now, right? There wouldn't be a feeble person around the country. That's right. If He could get everybody to believe it, it'd all be over. See?
Hold your Token over your unmovable faith in His promised Word, and Satan will go. God always honours His Token. He honoured in Egypt. He honoured it in Jericho when Rahab hung the red cord from her window. He expects us to display His Token over our faith, to Satan and all his unbelieving cults and denominations, that we believe His promise is true, and He will do what He promised to do.
The Token is the Holy Spirit. "For by one Spirit we are all baptized into one Body, and made partakers of His glory." Believe the Token! nl951.htm
