THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL
by Dr. Wesley A. Swift - 5-22-67
As we deal with the theme of the Everlasting Gospel, we turn to the 90th Psalm. As we talk about the Everlasting Gospel, we are talking about an age old message about God’s purposes from the beginning, from Everlasting to Everlasting. Now, of course, there is a time element in Everlasting. And it includes some millenniums in it as it goes from Everlasting to Everlasting, but still it is a long, long time.
‘LORD, thou has been our dwelling place in all generations.’ This is a word of truth as expressed by David the Psalmist, who was an Israelite indeed. ‘Thou has been our dwelling place in all generations.’ And of course, the situation goes on even before this, for--- ‘Behold the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hast formed the earth, and the world, even from Everlasting to Everlasting--THOU ARE OUR GOD. Thou has been our dwelling place before You created the heavens and the earth, our dwelling place in all generations.’
Of course, the great area of Divine mystery concerning the knowledge of the pre-existence of the sons of God is so well expressed by the apostle Paul as he writes in Ephesians, that we existed with the Father, in love, in the heavens before the world was framed. That we have already been blessed with all blessings of the spirit in heavenly places. And when we understand this, we recognize that there is no area of spiritual blessings through the spirit or by the spirit that has not been already bestowed upon the sons and daughters, because they have been begotten by incorruptible seed. Thus, having been begotten of incorruptible seed, they are perfect. Therefore, we were with God. We knew the things of God. We were perfect because of the Celestial conscious of man when he existed in the heavens, for he then moved with the mind of the Father (Spirit). Then Paul tells us, ‘Absent from this body, is to be present with the LORD.’ Then the Apostle Paul goes so far as to say, ‘When HE appears, we are going to see even as we are beheld, we are going to be known even as we are known.’ Why? How? Because in a moment--in the twinkling of an eye, the children of the MOST HIGH will have the affinity which they have with their Father, and because of the conscious quickening of HIS Spirit, they shall be instantly transformed. They will be instantly transformed even in the capacities of their bodies and in the capacities of their minds. And the intelligence to comprehend the thoughts of the MOST HIGH will bring this to pass. For in the spiritual plains, you did comprehend the thoughts of God. Every secret wisdom was made known unto thee in the areas of pre-Adamic beginning, when the Adamic race was placed in the earth. One of the conditions of their fall, was that their intellect was covered as tho with a veil, and they could not understand, nor remember what had happened in the spiritual plain.
A newborn babe has little consciousness as he emerges through the Adamic race. He has little consciousness of that other existence altho he may have some nostalgic remembrance as a baby. But as he adapts to his new environment, and his new existence in earth, he has little remembrance of his life in the spirit. Altho some babes are real wise, and may remember a few things of the wisdom and the mystery of the heavens. By the time they have learned to talk, they have forgotten as the veil comes across their minds and blots out the things of God. There was an exception to this with the babe, John the Baptist. Because he was filled with the Holy Spirit from his mother’s womb. And when he was born, they had to send him to the Essene Company living in the hills and caves of Judea to be raised, because of the design of Herod, king of the Jews, who gave the orders to kill the babes, as he designed to destroy the MESSIAH.
The fact remains, that the dimension of spirit is a tangible plain. And it existed before the creation of the physical world. But that dimension of spirit was the habitation of every one of the sons and daughters of the MOST HIGH. And they existed in the consciousness and in understanding, in that place which was on less tangible than this one, for those who were the children of the spirit. In that hour, God told us about the earth, and what HE would do here. HE told us that Lucifer would reach his final stage of iniquity here on earth.
There is no doubt that Lucifer had rebelled against God before the areas of the re-creation of the earth. We are to understand that God warned us of this rebellion and told us that we were going to conquer Lucifer in this area of the earth. We were told that what we had to offer the peoples of earth was an EVERLASTING GOSPEL. This was the GOSPEL in which YAHWEH, God, in HIS Everlasting measures, would not only redeem those who were HIS own, but also was going to save all flesh, eventually was going to bring every knee to bow and eventually all people would acknowledge that HE was the Majesty of God, embodied in the flesh, as MESSIAH. And that we, HIS children, would voice the message that HE had bestowed upon us. Thus, it is an Everlasting Gospel, and a Gospel of great magnitude.
As we move thru the book of Genesis, we see that God speaks to Abraham, and HE says, ‘I shall establish my covenant between thee and ME, and thy seed after thee for an Everlasting Covenant.’ There is not one condition saying you do this, or I will do that. This is an Everlasting Covenant between thee and ME, and I shall be a God unto thee, and unto thy seed after thee. The children of Israel were raised to recognize the covenant of the MOST HIGH GOD, and of course, one of the constant messages to them by their wise men such as Moses and others, was that they, the Children of God, had come out of the heavens, and were embodied in the earth. This was also brought out by the Apostle Paul as he was taken into the heavens, and then returned to write of his experiences. One of the things he was to write about was the spiritual consciousness of the sons and daughters, and the necessity of that consciousness being reawakened in the household of the MOST HIGH GOD. Thus, Paul was to say, ‘His spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of the MOST HIGH GOD, but we are the children of God because we were begotten by the Father of incorruptible seed, and HE had declared unto us The Everlasting Gospel, even before the foundations of the world. Even declaring HIS Messiahship, and declaring the eventual emerging of HIS sons and daughters like unto Himself, in the fullness of HIS Grace. Thus, we are to remember that we are dealing with an Everlasting Gospel, and an EVERLASTING YAHWEH-GOD.
Therefore, Isaiah speaks to us in chapter 9, ‘Unto us a son was born, unto us he was given---and the government shall be upon HIS shoulders.’ HIS name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the Mighty God, the everlasting Father. This was to clinch the fact that the Messiah was the emerging Eternal God. HE was born, or was emerging Eternal God. And HE was from EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING. HE was the God who was our Father before the foundation of the world, and who had begotten us with incorruptible seed.------------It was this Messiah who was begotten into the Virgin Mary who was THE EVERLASTING FATHER. When we recognize this, then we realize that we are the one people that have the message of God as the children of God, thru out all the areas of HIS creation thru out all the areas of HIS established purposes, and unto all the peoples of the world. Even Angels shall work for you and serve you because you are a part of an EVERLASTING GOSPEL with an EVERLASTING MESSAGE, and it shall continue world without end.
Turn then to Isaiah 59:21,-- ‘As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and My words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and forever.’
Now, we may live in a time when there is a great falling away, and we may move into a time that is hare do understand as we see the perfidity of denominations and religious institutions. But at the same time, God has promised to keep alive thru the seed of Israel, the voice of HIS EVERLASTING GOSPEL. This is a message that HE keeps alive through HIS Household as HE re-awakens HIS children.
Turn next to the book of Revelation 14:6---- ‘And I saw another Angel fly in the midst of heaven having the EVERLASTING GOSPEL to preach unto them that dwell on the earth.’ Not only to the nations, but to the kindred.--(This means the Household of the MOST HIGH), those who have a direct relationship, and also to the peoples of many tongues.---Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give Glory to HIM, for the hour of HIS judgement is come; worship HIM who made heaven and earth, and who put the sea and the foundation of waters.’
Then another Angel followed saying, ‘Babylon is fallen, is fallen---that Great city, because she made all the nations drink of the wine of wrath of her fornication.’
Thus, we see in the 6th verse, that an Angel is singing ‘THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL’ to the Household of the MOST HIGH GOD. Then beginning in verse 7, the next Angel brings the news of the Judgement of God upon the forces of evil, upon the powers of darkness, and upon the household of Lucifer---that great mystery city of Mystery Babylon the Great. For this mystery city of Lucifer this Mystery City, Babylon the Great, is a continuing development of Lucifer’s population, his people. While the New Jerusalem, the Mystery City of God, the City of Peace, is wherever the children of the MOST HIGH find their existence.
We can then establish this by the scriptures, for in Revelation 21:2-- ‘John saw the Holy city, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.’ This New Jerusalem then comes down through the Adamic race, down to the time of the narrator who was speaking, and New Jerusalem is the continuing Order of the MOST HIGH GOD, for HE is sending down the New Jerusalem through the seed, and through the race of Adam. And HE refers to this New Jerusalem as HIS Household. In this same way then, Mystery Babylon is the household of Lucifer, the counterpart of Lucifer which shall be broken.
THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL is the Gospel telling of the rise of the Kingdom, the triumph of Messiahship, and the warfare which exists between the children of the Kingdom, and the children of Lucifer. It is a Gospel of Everlasting Triumph and Everlasting Victory. And we shall see that Victory, for we--as we have heard the Everlasting Gospel sung by the Angel, we also have heard the Second Angel declare the destruction of Babylon.
As we look out over the events as they transpire, we see the climax of this age building up. And we remember that Daniel declared when the abomination of the desolator stands in the Holy Place then comes the end. On the original site of Solomon’s Temple, now sits the Mosque of Omart. And the Temple built by Solomon was destroyed, then rebuilt after the return of part of Judah and Benjamin after their captivity in Babylon. Then that Temple was destroyed when strange Ashkenazim Jews came in and fought for the Temple. And in the struggle between true Judah and Benjamin, and these Ashkenazim Jews, the Temple was again destroyed.
(The Ashkenazim are--according to the dictionary--Central to Eastern European Jews, and the Sephardim of Spain and Portugal regard themselves as of purer descent.)
After that destruction of the Temple, then came the rebuilding by Herod, and this was the one in that place in the days of Jesus. But this was an Apostate temple overlaid with gold. And like those whom he represented, Herod, king of the Jews thought more of the gold than they did of the work of the Temple. By this medium we can see why the Temple, and the priesthood were denounced by the Christ as the evil that it represented. Then the temple of Herod was destroyed in 70 A.D. by Titus the Roman, and the city was next turned into a Moslem city by Mohammed and the Mosque was built on the site where once the old Solomon Temple once stood.
Now, the scripture does talk about a rebuilding of the Temple, but not necessarily on that spot. It talks about the great development of a New Jerusalem, but that Temple for New Jerusalem is a Temple of Living stones simply framed, that grows into a Temple unto the MOST HIGH GOD.
In the book of Ezekiel, where it talks of this building of a New Temple, this city is 1500 miles square. And you couldn’t put a city that size into Palestine, for there is no room for it. The only place you could put a New Jerusalem with a great center of population of that magnitude, is in this country of the United States, and part of Canada. Anyway, it is hard to take USA out of the heart of JerUSAlem and have anything left, isn’t it?
We have come to an important turning point in World History. For, ever since World War I, organized Jewry has been trying to revitalize and expand through Zionism and take over the world. Weismann and Hertzel had started Zionism and for it to be more effective, they wanted Palestine for a homeland for the Jews. They wanted the mineral wealth of that area, and also Palestine is a land that is well located as a focal point for all the nations. But also they wanted this land, because of its nostalgic effect upon the minds of the Christian nations. At the same time, they wanted to stretch out into all the Christian nations and into all the governments of the world, and then eventually set up their national headquarters in Jerusalem, and from there to rule the world.
This set up is of course taken by some churches to mean the real thing, and they say, ‘Oh, my, this is Israel returning to Palestine to rule the world.’ My friends, this is not the prophecy of the restoration of Israel as a people or a nation. The building of the Lombard, Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian, Germanic, Nordic, Basque--kindred people--into nations, is the establishing of God’s Israel in the earth. It is not the return of the Jews to Palestine. And those people are not embraced in the Everlasting Gospel as the children of God. Jesus talks of the Jews as being the abomination of the desolator.
One thing that did happen in 1881, and I quote now from the book ‘What Price Israel,’ by David Lillienthal. It talks about how in the years 1881 to 1924, that 2 1/2 million Jews moved into the United States. And they were sent into this country as well as other White nations to establish themselves and give a great weight of power to Zionism. Later they would claim all areas of the world. These were the Jews who were mixed up in the assassination to get World War II started, as the Arch Duke Ferdinand was killed. Remember how Kaiser Wilhelm said as he took over Palestine, that he was going to build a Palace in Palestine and rule there until Jesus came, whose right it is to rule? No matter, what they said about Kaiser Wilhelm, still, he was a religious man. And he was also a Lutheran minister before he became ruler of that land of Germany. He was of the House and Tribe of Judah, and was a cousin of King George of England, and Czar Nicholas of Russia, each of these cousins ruling over branches of Israel. One of the things that the Kaiser did not understand, was that the Throne of David had been transferred and established in Britain. That is the House of Joseph was established, in this transfer, the House of David, for a King line. But the fact remained that the leader of Germany at that time, still had a vision. And he decreed that Christianity ruled in Palestine.
But when the Zionist Jews realized that World War I was not going so well, for Germany, they tried to make a deal with Britain, and Lord Balfour drew up an agreement that said that some of the Zionists could go to Palestine to dwell. But they could only go according to their number and according to the number of Arabs and Christians, that the land would support. So the Jews said they would put their money, and their influence into the winning of the war for the Allies and that secretly they would bring America into the war. Col. House was one of the men at work here, and this was one of those situations that was not brought out into the open, but Loyd George of Britain wanted America to help him, after he blundered into the war. Col. House was thus the man in those around the President Wilson, as America was pushed in to that war. Also at that time, we find Barnard Baruch and Justice Brandeis in position of power and influence in this picture. Then Britain was given the mandate over Palestine at the end of the war.
Remember that in that time, that British troops were surrounding the mountains all around Jerusalem. And the Arab troops were helping them. And inside the city were Turks and Arabs. In order for the British Army to have water, they had run a pipeline from the Nile River to Jerusalem. And one day, a piper ruptured and water ran thru the streets of Jerusalem, and the Turks and Arabs in the city laid down their arms. Why? Because it had been declared by Mohammed the Prophet that they would never give up the city of Jerusalem until the water of the Nile ran through the streets of the city. And they felt that this was the fulfillment of prophecy.
Another interesting instance of this time---The scripture said, ‘As birds fly over, will I preserve the city.’ As the aircraft of the British flew over Jerusalem, they warned the inhabitants that if anything in the city was destroyed, they would bomb the people, and thus there was no destruction in the turning over the city. Thus the British took over the city of Jerusalem according to Haggai 2:18 in the ninth month on the 24th day in the year 1335 of the calendar for that time. A day is for a year according to Daniel as he gave the prophecy of measure. This was an important day when the British took over the city of Jerusalem, and then Britain ruled that area well for many years. But the Zionist Jews said, ‘We want the land of Palestine, and still the British said, ‘NO, you have a right to live in the land according to your quota, but that is all.’
Then came the cry in America, as the Jews in our land said that Britain is anti-Semitic. She is mistreating the Jews. Then World War II was brought about as organized Jewry (Zionism) was no longer able to control Germany’s economy after the Reichstag established a new monetary system. From this time on, the Zionist Jews determined to bring on a war that would result in the defeat of all Christian countries. As we look back on this time, we know that Christians bombed Christian cities. And we should never have fought this war. Because it WAS DESIGNED AND STARTED BY THE ZIONIST JEWS. But at the end of this sad war, they were no closer to the establishment of Palestine as a homeland for the Jews, as Britain was no closer to giving the land to them. So they shot Lord Moyne, and other men of the British protecting army in Palestine. They even hung some of the Sergeants of that Army. And Winston Churchill said, ‘If the Jews think they are going to get Palestine, by killing British soldiers, or British Royalty, then they better think again. For as long as I live, I will be against Palestine as a Jewish State.’
Well in 1946-47, the Maypie was formed. And this was a Jewish army that was gathered from all the gangster forces of the world. A lot of them were gathered from this country, especially right out of New York and Chicago. Powerful Jewish Banking Houses bought ships and war supplies, and equipped this renegade army. And the first you heart about it was as this Jewish Army was storming the beaches of Palestine. The Arabs were battling, but by 1947, the Jews were murdering Christians and Arabs. And doing all the things they did in Palestine---the likes of which the world had never seen. So at this point, the United Nations stepped in, and important Zionist Jews like Barney Baruch and Eddie Jacobson and others, put pressure on President Truman to recognize Palestine as the Jewish homeland. Drew Pearson, an old friends of the Zionist, told how the Jews with some of the people from our country, were putting pressure on all the countries that depended on this country for foreign aide, to vote for partition of Palestine.
The scripture says, ‘WOE UNTO THOSE WHO PARTITION MY LAND.’ We--America and Britain, are helping divide Palestine with our enemy, while the Arabs are pushed out into the desert where there is no water. Since Britain would not recognize the little State of Israeli as the Jewish homeland, then all the pressure fell on Mr. Truman. And you know what happened then. Now in 1967, the Jews are ready to jump again. But we know from the Everlasting Gospel that we will be a victorious people even if this should be the beginning of the end of this situation. However, I want you to know this. It was England, France, and the United States that signed that secret agreement that they will go to the aide of Israeli if she is ever attacked.
One of the great truths that you get out of the Everlasting Gospel, is that when that final day comes, the sky will be filled with flying crafts, and the hosts of heaven will enter into this situation before this thing is over. And KING---CHRIST WILL BE HERE to be Crowned. And HIS Kingdom will triumph. The sons and daughters of the MOST HIGH will be given the power to back up the administration of the Kingdom over the whole earth. This we know for sure from this EVERLASTING GOSPEL, and that is what we can count on always.
