Flawed Chemical Analysis in French Intelligence Report Alleging Syrian Sarin Nerve Agent Attack in Khan Sheikhoun

President Al Assad

May 1, 2017 In this short note I describe why the chemical forensic analysis and logic described in the French Intelligence Report of April 26, 2017 (FIR) could lead to a high confidence conclusion that an indigenous nerve agent attack in Denver, Colorado was perpetrated by the Syrian government.

Such an obviously flawed investigative finding would be a product of the same combination of irrational arguments and unsound scientific evidence that the FIR used as its basis to reach a conclusion that the Syrian government must have executed in nerve agent attack on April 4, 2017 in Khan Sheikhoun . . . the FIR analysis that led to the identification of sarin as being produced by the Syrian government would have led to the same unsupported conclusion from the FIR if it were applied to an indigenous sarin attack in Denver Colorado . . .

Endless Atrocities: US Role in creating North Korean Fortress-State

April 26, 2017 — Paul Atwood, a Senior Lecturer in American Studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston, provides a concise summary of the history that informs North Korea's "relations with the United States" and "drives its determination never to submit to any American diktat" . . . it is an American "myth" that the "North Korean Army suddenly attacked without warning, overwhelming surprised ROK defenders." In fact . . . the goal of US planners to access or control "global . . . resources, markets and cheaper labour power" . . .

Comment: US and 'Allied' history is another BIG LIE by the 'Hidden Hand, whose 'patsies' we are, and as the US slowly morphs into "the image of the Judaeo-Roman beast" of Revelation 13:11-18. America's first and last Trump is threatening to repeat America's dastardly genocide of North Korea. History taught to Goyim is 'City of London' brainwashing making us 'useful idiots'—pawns in their game for global hegemony.


War against North Korea. THAAD Missile System aimed at Russia, China, not DPRK

April 27, 2017 — Namhee Lee, a UCLA Associate Professor of Modern Korean History, said, "many South Koreans think that the deployment of THAAD is actually to deter China and not North Korea. North Korea's missiles are short-range SCUDs with a range of 500 km (300 miles), medium-range Rodong 1s with a range of 1,300km (780 miles) . . . THAAD is not effective against the SCUD missile. THAAD is effective against the Rodong 1, but this missile is not developed to aim against South Korea, rather it is aimed against Okinawa," she said.

As to the question why the US military was deploying THAAD in South Korea, Lee said, "Because it is aimed against China and Russia; to collect information, which is why China and Russia are upset about the deployment of THAAD." Namhee Lee noted the X-bend radar that is integrated with a THAAD system is able to detect missiles at a range of 1,000-5,000 km (600 miles to 3,000 miles) . . . Deploying THAAD's radars also posed health hazards for the people of South Korea, the historian explained. Full story: sputniknews.com


Washington Plans to nuke Russia and China

April 27, 2017 — Both written documents and changes in US war doctrine indicate that Washington is preparing a preemptive nuclear attack on Russia and China. More recently, I have shown that Washington's demonization of Russia and President Putin, the incessant lies about Russian deeds and intentions, and the refusal of Washington to cooperate with Russia on any issue have convinced the Russian government that Washington is preparing the Western populations for an attack on Russia. It is obvious that China has come to the same conclusion . . .

Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznikhir, Deputy Head of Operations of the Russian General Staff has concluded that Washington in pursuit of global hegemony is implementing an anti-ballistic missile system that Washington believes can prevent a Russian nuclear response to a US pre-emptive attack. Careful studies have convinced the Russians that Washington is investing in and arranging components that have no other function than to devastate Russia and cripple the country's retaliatory capability. In short, Washington is preparing to launch a nuclear war . . .

Where then is the hope? Russia and China cannot simply sit there and await America's preemptive nuclear strike . . . And there are no protests. The idiot British, the idiot Germans, the idiot French, Italians, Canadians, Australians, Belgians, Greeks, Portuguese, Spanish, Japanese, rally behind the insanity that is Washington. And so apparently do the American people, a population stupid beyond all belief.

Threat of Nuclear War, North Korea or United States?

April 28, 2017 — North Korea is not a threat to global security. The threat of nuclear war largely emanates from the US under the doctrine of pre-emptive nuclear war (self-defense) against both nuclear and non-nuclear states. This article provides an in-depth understanding of both the historical background as well as the nature of US nuclear doctrine.

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the unspoken victim of US military aggression, has been incessantly portrayed as a war mongering nation, a menace to the American Homeland and a "threat to World peace" . . . part of a [globally-controlled alien] media consensus. These continuous threats and actions of latent aggression directed against the DPRK should also be understood as part of the broader US military agenda in East Asia, directed against both China and Russia.

Leading Psychiatrists concerned at President's Dangerousness, Instability &Unpredictability

April 27, 2017 — Numerous psychological complexities, including apparent megalomania . . . and a vocabulary so limited it makes George W. Bush . . . look like an orator, are just a few of the characteristics which have a group of eminent psychiatrists extremely concerned.

At a conference at Yale's School of Medicine Dr. John Gartner, a founder Member of Duty to Warn . . . said: "We have an ethical responsibility to warn the public about Donald Trump's dangerous mental illness . . . Worse than just being a liar or a narcissist, in addition he is paranoid, delusional and grandiose thinking and he proved that to the country the first day he was President" . . .

Professor James Gilligan pulled no punches, saying: ". . . You don't have to be an expert on dangerousness or spend fifty years studying it like I have in order to know how dangerous this man is" . . .

Dr. Bandy Lee of Yale University . . . "The real dangerousness is this instability, unpredictability and impulsivity that point to dangerousness due to mental impairment. The kind of taunting of North Korea, for example. The military attack that was done within a few days of office. He suddenly, impulsively, bombed Syria. And then the dropping of the Mother of All Bombs, the expression of contentment at the show of force, is very troublesome" . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca


Alliance of Convenience: Israel supports Syria's ISIS Terror Group

President Putin

April 27, 2017 — Washington created and supports ISIS, along with other anti-government terrorists in Syria and elsewhere. NATO, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other regional rogue states supply them weapons and other material support . . . Israel has a longstanding alliance of convenience with regional terrorist groups and rogue states—including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, other Gulf states, Jordan and Egypt . . .

Fact: All so-called anti-Assad rebel groups are terrorists. No moderates exist. All commit gruesome atrocities, including chemical weapons (CW) attacks—toxins supplied by Turkey and Saudi Arabia . . . Pentagon contractors train terrorists in use of CWs . . . Western media suppress what's most important to know about the ongoing war in Syria. The country was invaded. Conflict isn't civil. All anti-government forces are terrorists. No moderate rebels exist.

Washington, Israel and their rogue allies want regime change, Syrian sovereignty destroyed. Peace talks since 2012 accomplished nothing because Washington and Israel want another imperial trophy, Iran isolated ahead of plans to oust its government.

Russia is the only major power standing in the way of achieving these disturbing objectives. Putin is on the right side of history, resisting imperial lawlessness. Full story: globalresearch.ca


The Globalization of War. America's 'Long War' against Humanity

Uncle Sam

April 26, 2017 — The "globalization of war" is a hegemonic project. Major military and covert intelligence operations are being undertaken simultaneously in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, sub-Saharan Africa, Central Asia and the Far East. The US military agenda combines both major theater operations as well as covert actions geared towards destabilizing sovereign states. Under a global military agenda, actions undertaken by the Western military alliance (US-NATO-Israel) in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Palestine, Ukraine, Syria and Iraq are coordinated at the highest levels of the military hierarchy. We are not dealing with piecemeal military and intelligence operations. The July-August 2014 attack on Gaza by Israeli forces was undertaken in close consultation with the United States and NATO. The actions in Ukraine and their timing coincided with the onslaught of the attack on Gaza.

In turn, military undertakings are closely coordinated with a process of economic warfare which consists not only in imposing sanctions on sovereign countries but also in deliberate acts of destabilization of financial and currencies markets, with a view to undermining the enemies' national economies . . . The Western military alliance is in an advanced state of readiness. And so is Russia . . . heralded as the "Aggressor." US-NATO military confrontation with Russia is contemplated . . . "The Russian Aggression Prevention Act" (RAPA) has "set the US on a path towards direct military conflict with Russia in Ukraine" . . . the culmination of more than twenty years of US-NATO war preparations, which consist in the military encirclement of both Russia and China:

"From the moment the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the United States has relentlessly pursued a strategy of encircling Russia, just as it has with other perceived enemies like China and Iran. It has brought 12 countries in central Europe, all of them formerly allied with Moscow, into the NATO alliance. US military power is now directly on Russia's borders." Full story: globalresearch.ca

Comment: This war will see the US defeated, invaded, briefly occupied then brought under submission to the Judaeo-Roman Universal church by the power of gold whereby church and state will unite to form an apostate Protestant "image unto the beast" of Rome whose pope will be Satan-incarnate. He will restore peace and become President of one world government (Daniel 7; 9:27; 11:36 – 12:13; John 5:43; I Thessalonians 5:3; II Thessalonians 2; Revelation 13). The united States which were founded for freedom of Christian worship will receive the offer Jesus Christ rejected in Matthew 4:8-9.

The Balfour Declaration

By Andrew S. MacGregor©2017 all rights reserved

May 3, 2017 — What prompted me to write this article was that the Zionists are celebrating the centenary of the odious Balfour Declaration of the 9th of November 1917 without a skerrick of thought to the deceit, the lies, the treacheries that all combined to require a British government to announce to the world the price the world paid to give a small sect of Jews, the Zionists, their thirty pieces of silver, a 'Homeland' in Palestine. Full story: Educate yourself to truth.

Comment: "International financiers are behind all war. They are what is called the international Jew: German-Jews, French-Jews, English-Jews, American-Jews . . . the Jew is the threat" (Henry Ford, quoted in New York World, 1919, as cited in: Martin Allen (2002). Hidden Agenda: How the Duke of Windsor Betrayed the Allies. p. 55-56). "Truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yes, truth fails; and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey; and the Lord saw it and was displeased . . . and He put on the garment of vengeance for clothing . . . According to their deeds He will repay . . ." (Isaiah 59:14-19).

"All things work together for good to them that love the Lord, to them who are the called according to His purpose" (Romans 8:28). Christians understand these non-Semitic, anti-Semitic so-called Jews, like their Jebusite forebears, have built facilities for Israelites of the blood of Jacob to inherit. Soon Israel's utter defeat will see a mass exodus of self-styled Jews, to be replaced by genuine Israelites returning for redemption in the Land of their Covenant.


Dunamis

By Pastor Boyd Reneau © 2017 all rights reserved

It is said that if the spirit of Shakespeare would come upon you; you would write poems and plays and be a dramatist at heart. If the spirit of Beethoven were to inspire you, you'd compose music. And in identical fashion if the Spirit of God ever comes upon you, it will make you act just like Jesus Christ of whom Paul wrote, "God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: Who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the Devil; for God was with Him" (Acts 10:38).

Luke 24:49 records these faithful words: "Behold, I send the promise of My Father upon you: but tarry in the city of Jerusalem, until you are endued with power from on high." In Acts 1:8 Luke again quoted Jesus' Words: "But you shall receive power, after the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and you shall be witnesses to Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth".

One of the greatest things for which God's people can be ever thankful is that we have not been called to some creed, philosophy or institution but unto the ageless, infinite eternal God Himself. This wonderful promise the Lord gave His disciples was by no means limited to the primitive Church, in fact on the day of Pentecost Peter said "the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call" (Acts 2:39). And in I Corinthians 6:17 Paul said "God and the soul that is joined unto the Lord is one Spirit" and it is the Spirit that imparts the power.

There are two Greek words in our English Bibles that are translated "power" and "authority"; they are 'dunamis' and 'exousia' (the power or authority of free moral agency or choice, physical or mental ability, jurisdiction and command). In this article we will deal mainly with 'dunamis' following the recent truly wonderful five part series on "Authority through Separation" published on Bible Believers' Church website for you to study and feed your soul "spiritual food in due season".

The Greek word dunamis is used 120 times in the New Testament. It refers to strength, power, or ability. It is the root of our English words dynamite and dynamic.

a. Dunamis can refer to "inherent power, power residing in a thing by virtue of its nature, or which a person or thing exerts and puts forth."

In Matthew 22:29 Jesus told the Sadducees, "You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power [dunamis] of God." He also said, "Then will appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power [dunamis] and great glory" (Matthew 24:30).

In other words, the Lord has inherent power residing in Himself. Dunamis is part of His nature. And we do not live the Christian life in our own power, but in God's dunamis. It is Christ in us who enables us to accomplish things of intrinsic worth, for "apart from Him we can do nothing"  (John 15:5). It is His strength that makes us overcomers.

In the Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14–30), the servants are given wealth based on their dunamis, or "ability" to handle money. In Mark 9:1 Jesus said, "Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see that the kingdom of God has come with power [dunamis]".

b. However, dunamis is not just any power; the word often refers to power for performing miracles or marvellous works (such as in Matthew 7:22; 11:21, 23; Mark 5:30; Luke 5:17; 9:1; 10:13; and Acts 8:13).

c. Dunamis can also refer to "moral power and excellence of soul".

When the Bible uses the word 'dunamis,' it never refers to our human strength or ability but rather to the manifestation of God's sovereign Supernatural power working through us. It is His power alone that keeps us, while it forms our character and instructs us in righteousness as we walk in His power to glorify and honour Him. In so many instances where we see that power gloriously displayed in comparison with men walking in their own puny strength. The mighty apostles of Acts 4:33 who "with great power [dunamis] gave witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus—after their baptism with the Holy Spirit—when great grace was upon them all" were the disciples who previously huddled together in lockdown "for fear of the Jews" (John 20:19). Many great and marvellous things happen when the authority [(Gk.) exousia] of Jesus is in the house (Mark 2:1-12).

Whether we consider the miraculous healing of the man crippled from birth at the gate beautiful or the extraordinary miracles wrought by the hands of Paul, this was the "power" of God working in His people. Jesus was conceived in Mary's womb when the Holy Ghost came upon her and the dunamis of the Highest overshadowed her. Jesus Christ was "declared to be the Son of God with power [dunamis], according to the Spirit of holiness by the resurrection from the dead: by whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for His Name: among whom you are also the called of Jesus Christ" (Romans 1:4-6).

As Christians our greatest honour is to walk in newness of life by virtue of the indwelling Spirit and power of the Lord. That is the power that liberates us from the prison house of Satan and sets us free as "new creatures" in Christ Jesus. It should be abundantly clear how absolutely essential the New Birth is because, like the "Oil" in Matthew 25, those who sell have neither oil nor power to impart. Brother Branham taught that not only ministers like Moses or Joshua but each Christian should have a face to face meeting with the Pillar of Fire.

"Setting back in that bush was that big Pillar of Fire that was to lead him the rest of his days. And in this Pillar of Fire spoke out a Voice: "I have seen the afflictions of My people. I've heard their groanings and I remember My promise to Abraham, and I'm come down to deliver them. Now, go down there." Now, talk about perseverant, he walked right up in the face of Pharaoh, said, "Let them go." Why? He'd talked face-to-face with God till he had his commission. I think if minister brethren today would just not take it from a intellectual standpoint; but would find them a place on the backside of the desert on those sacred sands where Satan cannot place his dirty feet of unbelief, and stay there until a message comes from God and positionally places you in the ministry, then all the devils out of torment could not shake you from it. You know you're called. I think each Christian ought to do that. Before you come out and confess the Holy Ghost, confess that you have the baptism, there ought to be such a personal contact with God until all the intellectuals in the world couldn't explain it from you. You know. You've been there. You've had the witness. You know it's so. That's a requirement. Jesus told the disciples. "You wait. You know the intellectual part. You know the Word. But you wait up there at the city of Jerusalem until you're endued with power from on high." Then they knew. Oh, my" (Perseverance, #62-0806).

In Matthew 13:53-54 we find the people were astonished at Jesus' doctrine, "His wisdom, and mighty works." Likewise men marvelled at the doctrine, wisdom and mighty works in the ministry of Brother Branham who veiled the same Spirit and power to reveal "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday and today and forever . . . as it was in the days of Lot" as Jesus had promised (Hebrews 4:12; 13:8; Luke 17:28-30). This Son of man ministry restored the faith once delivered unto the saints and turned the hearts of the children back to the faith of their apostolic fathers. God ensured this ministry would be right on time to awaken the sleeping virgins and prepare Christ a chaste rapture ready Bride.

William BranhamThe God who "upholds all things by the Word of His power [dunamis]" (Hebrews 1:3) has returned in evening time to vindicate His promise by the same signs and wonders that declared Him at His first Coming. All manner of miracles were performed veiled behind the ministry of His humble servant William Branham, inasmuch as even his critics had to acknowledge God was with him. "As it was in the days of Lot" the Lord discerned the thoughts and intents of the heart of His Gentile children, healed their sick bodies and imparted faith to regenerate the Laodicean saints; then, after that dispensation when the Lamb had loosed the Seven Seals on the Book of Revelation He anointed His Prophet with the Spirit of Elijah to expound the fullness of the Word. It is these divinely revealed mystery truths that literally restore the heart of the children to their Pentecostal fathers, drawing each member of Christ's end time Bride to maturity "in the unity of the faith" for the manifestation of the Sons or God and the translation. Knowing our position in the Capstone of the Body empowers us with the certain authority of THUS SAITH THE LORD. Not knowing what Christ has done and is doing in this hour we would simply be guessing, "and without faith it is impossible to please God" and "work His mighty power [dunamis]," in the first resurrection and translation (Ephesians 1:19-20).

After fifty-four years of this holy convocation with every sign in heaven and on earth declaring we are on the threshold of the greatest event in all history, the age old conflict draws to its climax as hearts are cooling. In some cases brethren who once fellowshipped with the saints and gave countless hours in service to the Lord cannot find ten minutes to fellowship or witness of His glory. Others adopt lifestyles, lax dress codes and friends contrary to His Word. Still others feed their souls with sorcery and the lying wonders of television. Truly the spirit of Laodicea has taken charge over souls once enlightened but never sealed with the Spirit. News from around the world daily proves the galloping apostasy of the 80's and 90's is bearing a horrific wave of insanity and demon possession in pagan as well as once Christian nations.

In I Corinthians 4:20 Paul said "For the kingdom of God is not in word [(Gk.) 'Logos' only] but in power" [dunamis]. Remove godliness—this moral power and excellence of soul from our lives—and we are just church folks having a form of godliness and might just as well be reciting the unscriptural Apostles' Creed (so-called), or prayers from some catechism. No one can stand in this evil day without the fortification of the Holy Spirit in their life. One may quote the Scriptures or the Prophet's Message and decree that something be established but only THUS SAITH THE LORD through the lips of His people will bring it to pass. By this I mean, once our lives are under pre-eminence to His Word, God will honour what we say as what we speak will truly be the expression of the mind of Christ through us. The 'third pull' was not meant for a public show but for personal instruction in the exercise and potential of power and authority under pre-eminence before the Gentile dispensation closes. It will not be a public show as it was in the ministry of Brother Branham but to provide for our necessities as Christ incarnates and builds rapturing faith in His Bride. The manifestation of the Sons of God will be the great showdown when God confirms our faith and recognizes us for full adoption (Romans 8:19-23). When the mob came after Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane He asked them for whom they were looking; they answered Jesus of Nazareth, and the Lord answered: "I am He." John said they went backwards and fell to the ground. When the hordes of Satan are being unleashed against the camp of the saints whether as demon spirits or US and NATO forces, do you think reciting the twenty-third Psalm or some other Scripture will stop them? Or will you require the 'dunamis' and 'exousia' of the 'third pull?'

God fills His people to overflowing with the Holy Ghost and power but only sanctified vessels are brought under pre-eminence to Christ. Old-time holiness and clean living is a must, our lives must have the token on display which is the nature of Christ demonstrated in all situations. When the Book was sealed God "winked" at the ignorance of man, but with its sacred contents unsealed for over half a century such ignorance is no longer excused.

In Matthew 14, beginning from verse 22 we are taught a marvellous story about faith. Great multitudes had followed Jesus on foot and having compassion upon them He healed their sick. At evening His disciples, noting that they were in a desert place—an accurate picture of the world's spiritual, political and economic condition—besought Jesus to send away the multitude, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals. But ever gracious, He would not send them away empty but performed a great miracle feeding the five thousand with just five loaves of bread and two fishes.

"Immediately Jesus constrained His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away. And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray . . . Now when evening came, He was alone there. But the boat was now in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary."

"Now in the fourth watch of the night
[3.00am — 6.00am] Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, "It is a ghost!" And they cried out for fear.

But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, "Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid."

And Peter answered Him and said, "Lord if it is You, command me to come to you on the water." So He said, "Come." And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!" And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?" And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, "Truly, You are the Son of God."


When Peter said, "Lord if it is You, command me to come to You on the water!" Jesus said "Come!" as in these last days, the Spirit and the Bride say, "Come!" Whilst Peter's eyes were fixed on Jesus, faith overcame the raging elements and he walked on the water until reasoning wrought unbelief in the supreme authority of Christ's command over nature and the world exerted its dominion over him. Often times I have heard believers say "I need more power in my life to do this or that"; the truth of the matter is that the same power that created the heavens the earth and all therein is in us by the spoken Word. We must turn our eyes upon Jesus and focus on His promises rather than ponder our present situation.

I wish to quote from two of Brother Branham's Messages what I consider royal nectar for the queen bees or spiritual food in due season for the elect:

"Cut every obstacle from human beings, that they might be connected like in the Garden of Eden. Now, man . . . I was going to choke it, but I'm going to say it. Man is omnipotent. You don't believe that, but he is. A man fully surrendered to God is omnipotent. Did not He say in Mark 11:22-24, "Whatsoever things you say and don't doubt in your heart, it'll come to pass. You can have what you've said?"

"What happens when two omnipotences meet? When God and man comes together through omnipotence, something's got to shake . . . Whatsoever you'd say with that creative power of omnipotence of God, knowing that He's promised it, and He said it in His Word, it creates a power that goes out yonder and brings things to pass; things that is not, it makes them as though they are, because two omnipotences have met. There He stands. Oh, isn't He wonderful" (Patmos Vision, p. 123:264-265).

Just as God is preparing Jesus' Gentile Bride to meet her Bridegroom in the skies, He is preparing Israel to meet his King. November 2, 2017 will mark the centenary of the Balfour Declaration when the British Foreign Secretary, Zionist Arthur James Balfour, declared Britain's support for the establishment of a national home for the Jewish people in Palestine. It also marks 70 years since the UN General Assembly proposed a Partition Plan for Palestine into Jewish and Arab states with Jerusalem a corpus separatum and international city. So many things have happened from 1917 till now, and volumes have been written of the atrocities and ongoing genocide of Palestinians by the Zionist Israeli State. Those who are spiritual recognize that God was securing this ancient homeland of blood Israelites born of Jacob in preparation for their return at the start of Daniel's Seventieth Week. Brother Branham said, "When she [the Gentile Bride] goes up, two prophets arrive to Israel. See?" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 369:2; Zechariah 4; Matthew 24:31; Revelation 11:1-4). So the Israelites have not returned to the Land of their Covenant.

Way back in Genesis 26:12 we read "Then Isaac planted crops in that land, and received in the same year a hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him," showing that "faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Hebrews 11:1).

Many years later on the Day of Pentecost a hundred and twenty souls gathered in an upper room were filled with the Holy Ghost at the birth of the New Testament Church—a hundredfold increase on the twelve disciples. While at the end of time when God stretches forth His hand to plant Israelites back in the homeland and they "anoint the Most Holy," that nation will be born-again in One Day and He will reap a royal vintage of 144,000 Israelites—mathematically a twelve hundredfold increase over the number of saints baptized into Christ on the Day of Pentecost. His power does not diminish over time; it's more excellent and glorious in its demonstration through the years and for all eternity.

Paul said: "For if the rejection of Israel meant that God offered salvation to the rest of the world, their acceptance will be even more wonderful. It will be life for those who were dead!" (Romans 11:15).

"Did you ever think of what those people done for forty years? Not even forty days away [from the promise land], and God kept them there forty years. That's what it was a long time ago. "Well, I believe that . . ." Someone speaking of the Coming of the Lord Jesus, I believe it's past due. I believe it's because of the Church, the reason it's past due. Jesus said so. "As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the Coming of the Son of man." In the days of Noah, God was long-suffering not willing that any should perish. He waited for the people to come in, and today He's waiting for the Church to get together."

[That's just the way it is when I get a taste of God, when the Holy Ghost comes into the meeting. That's good, but I want more of it. There's more of it, because He promised every redemptive blessings is ours. Yes, sir]!

"They stayed on a mountain forty years. We stayed in our denominations forty years, fussing this way, and that way, and . . . Do you ever think what them people done out there forty years? Well, sure God was with them. He's been with us. They'd been out there forty years, and they raised children. God prospered them, had good crops. They done a lot of good out there. God blessed them and healed their sickness. There wasn't a feeble one among them when they come out of the wilderness. But He let them stay right there till that old bunch of fighters left—all died out."

"That's just exactly what He's done today, set us right down, joined the Assemblies, and join the Church of God, and join this, and join that, and join, join, join, oh, until we set here; and raised children and bought Cadillacs and prospered in business and everything else."

"But the end of the forty years is up, brother. There's a new generation's been raised up. That's right. There was a Joshua raised up one day. He absolutely believed God's Word, every bit of the promise—not only to take care of you, and bless your business and so forth, but there's more of it than that . . ."

"Possess the promises. "The promise is unto you and your children, to them that's far off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call." Christians, brother, sisters, we've been on this land long enough. We've been around here on this mountain. We've been on this denominational mountain too long now."

"We've been out here forty years using this for 'evidence,' speaking in tongues. Oh, my! When there's powers that's unknown, when the resources is untapped: "Whatever you ask in My Name, that I'll do. Ask the Father anything in My Name and I'll do it." Amen".

"Just divine healing, speaking in tongues, well, that's, that's just a few grapes that was brought back from across the land. The land is ours! It all belongs to us. Don't be afraid that the other fellow's going to beat you over there. Just join up with him and go on over. That's the way to do it. And we've been on this mountain for forty years. Let's get off of it, and go towards the Promised Land" (Turning Northward, #61-0129). nl974.htm
