“GOD’S REST IN SATAN’S EDEN”
BY C.W. WOOD
A NOTE TO OUR READERS: A Prayer of
Blessing To Our Readers, We believe The Lord is bringing in the last
Predestinated Seed just before He takes His Bride home.
This writer believes the squeeze that Br. Branham Spoke of is now in
Progress. He used the word “Squeeze”
which means “Pressure” that was to come on the Bride and draw them
closer to the Lord and to each other. It
is happening in De Witt church and I believe around the world.
Church natural is calling it a great move of Satan (A Satanic
revival)—but we know Satan never uses God, but God always uses Satan.
Satan was created for the day of evil, meaning God had a use for him.
Hold on Saints! Soon we will See some Saints who have been in the Grave. Watch the Third Pull Ministry then. We love You, Br. Wood & Church.
see “Entered into rest” on Tombstones, some runner in the race of life, gone
home. But, Born Again Christians do
not have to wait for the grave before they can Rest.
HEB. 4:9-16 “There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own
works, as God did from his.
Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after
the same example of unbelief.”
“For we have not an high priest which
cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points
tempted like as we are, yet without
16 “Let us therefore come boldly
unto the throne of grace, that we may
obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
These scriptures do not speak of the Rest of the Grave, but rest here on
Earth while we are still in these Flesh bodies.
There is another dimension that is our Final resting Place, but we
can’t wait until then to rest. We
must find a degree of Rest in this life to be able to hold out until we reach
our final destination.
We are living in the most Restless Age that the world has ever seen.
The world is restless. They
have no rest because of unrepented Sin. People
try Sin as a sedative to make them rest, such as drugs, alcohol, sex, wild
parties and devilish music, but wake up more afraid and more restless than ever.
More and more people are seeking rest by suicide, but it takes much more
than grave clothes and a casket to bring rest to a tortured Soul.
It takes more than membership in some Church.
It takes more than believing that God sent a last-day Prophet.
Many are anointed in their spirit, and even work gifts, but have not the
New Soul. Even as Jesus Warned us,
these anointed ones (In their spirit) will fool all but the Born Again.
We do not condemn these People, we only Preach the New Birth, which
is God’s Soul replacing the old Soul we were born with.
EZEK. 18:20 “The Soul
that sinneth, it shall die.” Only
one Soul never Sinned, and that was
our Lord Jesus Christ. All other
Souls have Sinned and therefore must die!
They will either die when God slays the old soul and replaces it with His
Own Soul, or it will die in the Flames after the Judgement!
Too often, even we Message believers allow doubt, fear and worry to rob
us of our God given rest. Some of us
live in a strain, worn out with our fleshly efforts.
But the Holy Ghost is not strained, or worried, or hurried!
Many still need the revelation that God is in Control of all things!”
We hear people say, “the devil is always disarranging my life after I
have put myself in God’s Hands. We
hear some say, “I can trust God, but people are always upsetting my life.”
Some say, “Circumstances seem to always be against me.
This attitude of mind is a very real problem, and if we don’t learn to
See God in Everything, we cannot enter the real Rest of Faith.
What good would it do, if after we have put our lives in God’s Hands,
that Some devil, or Some People, or Some Circumstance could
come along and take us back out of His Hands?
Some Christians give the devil credit for being in control Part of the
time! And so, the Question
must be Settled, “Is God in
Control at All times?”
We know that God is
not the author of Sin, but we must have the revelation that He is the Controller
1 THESS. 5:18 “In
everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning
you.” This is a most Powerful
Word, and it is backed up by many other scriptures.
“Dear Lord, do you mean that I should give you thanks for everything
that happens to me?” Yes!
God means what He says, and says what He means!
PSALM 37:23 “The steps of
a good man are ordered by the Lord----“
PSALM 76:10 “Surely the
wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.”
DAN. 4:35 “And all the
inhabitants of the earth are reputed
as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among
the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him,
What doest thou?”
CHRON. 29:11 “Thine, O Lord, is the
greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for
all that is in the heaven and in the
earth is thine; thine
is the kingdom, O Lord, and THOU ART EXALTED AS HEAD ABOVE ALL.”
ISAIAH 45:6-7 “That they
may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there
is none beside me. I am
the Lord, and there is none else.
VERSE 7 I form the light,
and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.”
PSALM 22:27-28 “All the
ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of
the nations shall worship before thee.
For the kingdom is the Lord’s and he is
the governor among the nations.”
PROV. 16:33 “The lot is
cast into the lap: but the whole disposing thereof is of the Lord.”
PSALM 33:10 “The
Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the
people of none effect.”
PSALM 115:3 “But
our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.”
ISAIAH 14:27 “For
the Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? And his hand is
stretched out, and who shall turn it back?”
“The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying,
Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed so
shall it stand.”
ROM. 8:28 “And we know
that all things work together for good to them that love God, to
them who are the called according to his purpose.
Problem is we try to
understand how certain things could Possibly be for our good.
(Must take it by faith) Bible
says, “His thinking is as high above ours as heavens are above the earth.”
PROV. 16:4 “The Lord hath
made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.”
“A man’s heart deviseth his
way: but the Lord directeth his steps.”
EPH. 1:11 “In whom also
we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of
him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will.”
The Whole teaching of Scripture shows that God is Always in Control of
All things at All Times.
Matt. 10:29 “Are not two
sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground
without your Father.” (So what about us?)
QUOTE: CHURCH AGE BOOK PG’S 333-334
things saith the Faithful and true
Now, I want to show you what I find in the thought of “faithful.”
You know we often talk about a great unchanging God, whose Word does not
change. And when we speak of Him
after that manner, we often get a view of Him that makes Him seem very
It is as though God made the whole universe and all the laws that pertain
to it and then stood back and became a great impersonal God.
It is as though God made a way of salvation for lost mankind, that way
being the cross, and then when the death of Christ has atoned for our sins, and
His resurrection gave us an open door to Him, God just folded His arms and stood
back. It is as if we majored in
believing in a great Creator, who having created, lost personal interest in His
Now I say that is how too many people are apt to think.
But that is wrong thinking, for God is GOVERNING IN THE AFFAIRS OF MEN
RIGHT NOW. HE
IS BOTH CREATOR AND SUSTAINER.
COL. 1:16-17 “For by Him
were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and
invisible, whether they be thrones, or
dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for

he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”
a Sovereign God. By his
own counsel, He purposed the plan of
salvation of His own elect which He
foreknew. The Son died upon the
cross to establish the
means of Salvation
and the Holy Spirit carefully executes the will of the Father.
He is working all things at this moment according to the purpose of
His own will. He is right in the
midst of it all. He is in the midst
of His church.

now as the great Shepherd of the sheep. His
very existence is for His own. He
loves them and cares for them. His
eye is ever upon them.
When the Word says that “your
lives are hid with Christ in God”
it means exactly what it says. Oh, I
am so glad that my God abides faithful. He
is true to Himself, He won’t lie. He
is true to the Word, He will back it up. He
is true to us, He will lose none of us, but raise us up in the last day.
I am glad that I am resting in His faithfulness.
Phil. 1:6 “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work
in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”
