WE TURN TO THE SUBJECT ‘WITH VIOLENCE SHALL BABYLON BE CAST DOWN. ‘REVELATION, CHAPTER 17 AND 18, contains so much in the content of God’s word concerning Great Babylon. We understand that great Babylon was at one time a great city. And we understand that Mystery Babylon the Great, was the enemy of Israel, this Kingdom of God. Babylon had a powerful and highly organized system of administration. It was a city that worshipped Baal, for the priesthood was involved in all the politics of Babylon, and had ruled over all the ancient world at one time in its history. And in the areas of its trade it gained control over the nations of the world. It established its vital power of usury and extended its authority into the ends of the earth. In fact, in all history, God looked upon Babylon as the most evil of all the most vital powers. So God declared its destruction, and Daniel, when a captive in that land, described how Medo-Persia would be the power to break down Great Babylon.

You can turn to the book of Jeremiah, and read: ‘the portion of Jacob is not like unto these brutish nations in their vanity and their work of error. HE is before all things, and Israel is the rod of HIS inheritance, the LORD of Hosts is HIS name.’

Will The Christian Church Take A Government Czar?

Will The Christian Church Take A Government Czar?

WE ARE TURNING IN OUR SUBJECT TO A DISCUSSION THAT IN OUR SOCIETY WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED YEARS AGO. And if suggested twenty years ago, would have made those listening, so say, ‘surely this must be madness.’ But now here in 1962, one week after Easter, we are discussing with you this fact. Will the Christian church here in these United States accept a government Czar over religion? You will say to me, ‘surely this is not possible. This could not have happened in these United States? There is no department of government with any authority over the church. Does not the Constitution of the United States say that the Congress of the United States not make any laws concerning the establishment of religion?’

There is nothing they can do concerning the freedom of the processes of religions activities to carry out their own design. All of these things may be true. And the freedom guaranteed by the Bill of Rights and by the Constitution that no authority is given to the Congress, in this area, to make laws concerning religion. But the Congress has not made any new laws concerning the establishment of Religion. Nor have they sought to stop the right of religions bodies to carry out their vision and to worship God after their own heart. No attempt has been made by Congress to do these things.

THERE IS NO DOUBT BUT THAT WE AS A PEOPLE ARE IN TROUBLE IN AMERICA TODAY. There is also no doubt that the areas we get into trouble as a people, and a race, are those areas where we have violated directly the laws of God. These are the laws which are the foundation of the establishment of laws of the Kingdom for Israel. These laws said that Israel was to be a separate people, they were not to dwell with strangers in their midst, for their own security. In fact the laws of God were very strict on this area, and when Israel observed these laws they were well off. Then when the great nations which descended out of the people of this Book violate these laws; then they are in trouble.

We are told that in the Latter Days many will depart from the Faith. We are told in Timothy that many not only will depart from the faith but that they will give heed to evil spirits and doctrines of devils. Thus the laws of God which have followed our people thru thousands of years are all set aside, and people believe in the doctrines of devils. I tell you that instead of trying to make one family out of all races, and instead of trying to make one world government over all people we should be strictly the strategy of Satanic design, against the great white nations of the western world. Against your culture, your civilization, and your background from whence you came. This white civilization is in great danger today only because of the attitude of leaders who have been seduced by a lie, and are seeking to spread the program of the world order, and have seduced people who are spreading this lie, and calling it the program of God. It is more important for you to be on the side of God, even though they call you a bigot as you stand for the Word of God than for you to accept the world order which is headed for destruction.

Why We Are Here

WE TURN THIS AFTERNOON TO THIS SUBJECT AS TO WHY WE ARE HERE. That may seem to be a strange subject, but those who are seeking to influence the minds of our youth and the college youth of our nation with the very objective, started a symposium a little over a year ago which has gone through a great number of Eastern Colleges. And they made it available to practically all of the students on the campus to participate in this symposium. And the physiologists and philosophers who were supposedly leading the staff, set this symposium into action both in New York and in Harvard University and other Eastern States. They said this is most essential for a proper foundation of philosophy and for social science and for an understanding of political philosophy. Thus they started this symposium as to ‘why we are here.’

Shortly after that several denominations of Christendom who had heard of this symposium, thought that they would add to this, the subject ‘Why we are here.’ And I heard about the content of the first symposium which was taught to bring about a social revolution which is being used today to rape your nation and your faith. I was equally disturbed by the fact that the churches had decided to put out a pamphlet to answer this ‘Why we were here.’ And then seemed to have such a little understanding of why they were here as well. In fact, while one was built with agnosticism, the other was built with the frustration of not knowing what it was all about anyhow. And it seemed to be the purpose of being here, was to keep everyone from being caught up in some terrible torture when they die. And that seems to be a rather silly objective anyhow. So one is almost as superstitiously sad as one was agnostically evil.

TONIGHT WE ARE CONSIDERING WHY THIS DISARMAMENT PROGRAM WILL NOT TAKE PLACE AND WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES PRESENT EVIDENCE THAT THIS CANNOT HAPPEN. We are well aware that the most important source of information for today is the revealed word of God. We are also aware that all the word of God is not altogether found in the one book which we possess. But the word of God is in this Book. We have in these compiled volumes, the word of the Prophets. And these men were men like you and I, but specially selected by God. And unveiled to their consciousness were these purposes. With each revelation and with each demonstration of personal manifestation, their knowledge increased. And they were told these things as to what to write in these records. They participated in the panorama of history which effected your race and their experiences. The things which the prophets recorded were the voices and revelations and experiences which God gave them, as well as the pictures which He passed before their consciousness. And they recorded these things.

I have often been asked by Clergy who have apparently been effected by the pseudo-theology that is taught in many places of today and these Clergy say: ‘Dr. Swift, do you really believe that the prophecies of the scriptures are true? Don’t you just believe this is something someone wrote and people accepted them?’

They seem quite amazed when I tell them I believe the prophecies of the scriptures. They say: ‘But how can you believe with your study of archaeology and anthropology and these other factors of modern science, in the supernatural pattern of the prophets?’

Why The Church Must War on Communism

IN THIS PARTICULAR TIME, WE HAVE STRANGE AND PECULIAR VOICES RAISING IN OUR LAND. And they have a great impact upon communications. And they are seeking to make those who war on Communism, suspect. Strangely enough, whereas those in the past have been fighting communism and opposing this as a terrible evil and as a mental political disease sweeping the world. And now they are to be looked on as a anti-social, and intolerant and suspect people, because there is a change taking place in our land.

A fifth column of inassimilable refugees have been pouring into America for the last forty years. We have had a tremendous pickup in the invasion of our society during and after WWII. In fact during this time great numbers of them fled into our country who were trying to put over a Socialist Communist Revolution in the heart of Europe. And with the rise of the forces of Central Europe, and because of circumstances, they could no longer operate there, they left this area. Because of the fear of being thrown into concentration camps for their part in the communist revolution.

And strangely enough, they came with the cry of refugees. They came in a fifth column and invaded these United States bringing their propaganda and their communist program. More than this, we have in the patterns that followed, we have at the end of WWII, a supposed ally, the Soviet Union, who was actually the most deadly enemy the United States ever had.

WE ARE TALKING ON THIS SUBJECT AS TO WHY ANTI-CHRIST WILL NOT BE SUCCESSFUL IN THE ATTEMPT TO CAPTURE THE KINGDOM. Of course there are a number of people who are despondent when they see the apparent areas of gain being made by the forces of the Anti-Christ, and then there are also a number of people who are so blind that they do not know who Anti-Christ is. There are great numbers of people who may be discouraged when they see great areas of creeping socialism sweeping across their nation, but they have not as yet associated this with the program of Anti-Christ, or the policies of the Prince of Darkness.

Now; there is one thing we want to call to your attention, and it is in the Book of Colossians. Here we have been told that the Man Christ Jesus is the embodiment of Yahweh (God). We have been told that by Him, and for Him were all things created that were in the heavens, and that are in the earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, dominions, principalities, or powers, all things were created by Him and for Him. More than this we were told that since He is before all things that by Him were all things made to consist. Therefore we are assured that since the embodied man Christ Jesus was the embodiment of God and since the created Universe was created by Him, and every dominion and every power that exists on the face of the earth is His, and since He had declared that He is going to control and end all things with all this dominion acknowledging Him, and acknowledging that He is God, then we can be well assured that He is capable of bringing this about, if we have the capacity to understand that Christ was the fullness of Yahweh.

THIS AFTERNOON WE ARE DISCUSSING A SUBJECT WHICH IS QUITE SIGNIFICANT as we survey the strategy of the opposition of God’s Kingdom and that which must be understood to accomplish the victories which belong to the household of God. Tremendous amounts of energy are being put out today, to accomplish the objectives which we are being told in the Ecclesiastical orders of our times of the services of God and the work that He would have us perform. Throughout the length and breadth of our land, and throughout Christendom, throughout the world, a false strategy has been empowered by the forces of darkness. This is to seek to interpret for the Church of God the purposes of God which the forces of darkness would like to have the Church of God destroy.

It is quite reasonable to expect that the forces of darkness are not interested in the purposes of God’s Kingdom, for they would like to retain the earth under their control throughout the ages to come. They are also well aware that in the strategy of God’s purpose and in the operations of the Church, that this is the great spiritual centre of His Kingdom. It is the oracle, the meeting of their congregations, and their awakening and the catalysing of their thought, discerning His purposes for an individual hour. All these things stir up and carry out the directives of God. And as it becomes the great force for the nations of God’s Kingdom, the whole family of God in earth then assume their responsibility and as it occupies in earth, the kingdoms of darkness are shaken.

WITHOUT DOUBT, WE ARE LIVING IN A VERY UNIQUE PERIOD OF TIME. But a period of time which has brought another great wave of evil among the nations of God’s Kingdom. Evil is a rather unique word in itself. It comes largely in its old interpretation from a work called ray, or rah, in the use of Hebrew in the early languages. And the actual use is an emanation of wretchedness and of utter darkness to destroy emanation.

So evil was considered an emanation or an effulgence of darkness and a process to be loathed as some elusive evil force had beset men’s souls and minds. And the word evil itself has something that is repulsive for all people, because of what it stands for and what it represents. When we talk about ‘evil stalks the land’, it is that evil has emerged from something. Since evil is just not just sin, or the violation of law, it is the very atmosphere, or emanation, or the substance radiated in the darkness. It has to come from something. There has to be a source that radiates it. There has to be that which emanates it, and we discover that there are such a people. That there is a force in the world today emanating the darkness, seeking the radiations of destruction.

TONIGHT AS WE TURN TO OUR SUBJECT OF ‘WHY EVIL MUST FAIL,’ it is with the realization that we must turn our thinking upon the purposes of the Most High and upon the struggle for the earth. We discussed, in part, some of these things, this afternoon, and know we must base our subject on some of the things which you are beholding. For in relationship to the household of God, all things must be decided by this household of God. For their knowledge, their wisdom, and their greatness has been a by-product of his spirit, his life and his energy as he makes this known unto his people. As he sends a wave of understanding upon them, and as he directs them according to his purposes, there is no doubt that we are in a very evil time. I can see violations of divine law upon every hand.

And I can recognize that this is a great nation of God’s kingdom. And the nations of God’s kingdom are here because he purposed them to be here. And he guided and inspired the motivation of a people as their race increased upon the face of the earth. But God has a plan. And that plan is to take the earth away from all of the powers of darkness, all of the false religions and all of the evil strategies of Lucifer. This is God’s plan.
