   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.



We 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. 4:9-16There 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.

   VERSE 15For 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 sin.

   VERSE 16Let 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. 18:20The 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 of it!

    1 THESS. 5:18In 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 37:23The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord----

   PSALM 76:10Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.

   DAN. 4:35And 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?

    1 CHRON. 29:11Thine, 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 45:6-7That 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 22:27-28All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.

   VERSE 28 For the kingdom is the Lord’s and he is the governor among the nations.

   PROV. 16:33The lot is cast into the lap: but the whole disposing thereof is of the Lord.

    PSALM 33:10The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.

    PSALM 115:3But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.

    ISAIAH 14:27For the Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? And his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?”

   ISAIAH 14:24The 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. 8:28And 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. 16:4The Lord hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.”

   PROV. 16:9A man’s heart deviseth his  way: but the Lord directeth his steps.

   EPH. 1:11In 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. 10:29Are 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  These things saith the Faithful and true Witness.  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 impersonal.

   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 creation.

   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. 1:16-17For 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 him:

VERSE 17  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

   He  is  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.  This  great   Creator,

Saviour-God is faithfully working amongst  His   own    right 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. 1:6Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.
