I ARRIVED IN EARTH AUGUST 26, 1912–-the third child in a farm family of five children near Summerfield, Kansas. Mother and Dad were young and very active in school and church events and we kids grew up in such an atmosphere. Dad pitched for a community ball team and my two brothers and my younger sister and I played ball as soon as we were able to participate. My oldest sister was the lady of the family.
My mother was only 5’2″ but a barrel of dynamite, so perhaps that is why my younger sister and I were such tomboys. Back in those days it was not considered nice for a lady to wear boys clothes or even ride a horse any way but side saddle, but my Dad decided that mother and my younger sister and I looked better in overalls doing the things we did at times. When Dad, in 1925, suggested taking his family and ‘going west’ perhaps the neighbours thought it a good idea. Many thought that there were still Indians in Western Kansas at that time.
Dad had an aunt who lived with her family Northwest of Scott City, Kansas and he made a trip west and purchased some land west of the Potter Ranch. He returned to Eastern Kansas and the Dave Tucker Family then moved west. My older sister was unhappy leaving friends but the rest of us kids piled into the Model A Ford with the side curtains in place and we headed west, on a great adventure. At the ranch we settled in for the fall school year, and my older sister moved to Scott City to finish her High School years. My older brother stayed home to help Dad get the Ranch stocked and in working order. My younger brother and sister were in my care as I drove a little covered wagon–-hitched to a blind horse–-the 4 miles to our country school..
THIS STUDY IS IN THREE PARTS. The first from Genesis 1:1 to the great Patriarch Abraham. The second from Abraham to Christ, and the third covers the Birth of YAHSHUA and HIS ministry as YAHSHUA-Messiah.
“IN THE BEGINNING, YAHWEH CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH, AND THE EARTH WAS WITHOUT FORM AND WAS VOID.” (Genesis 1:1-2)
To understand the above quotation, we must know something about the patterns of yesterday, about the antiquity of the earth, and about the ingenuity and technique which God is developing among HIS people as HE brings things to their remembrance as HE stirs within them a desire to know, and to proclaim Truth. In our search for Truth, we will be speaking about God, Man, Nations and Races of people.
ABRAM WAS BORN IN CHALDEA THE SON OF TERAH, the Prime Minister of that country, under king Nimrod. As you have followed the generations of the Adamic race through the book of Genesis you will recall that Nimrod was from the linage of Ham, as you come to Abram you find that he is from the lineage of Shem. This is still the same race of people, and they have now been called the Adamites, the Sethites, the Shemites, and Hamites, and Japhet people, and now they move into their destiny as the Hebrews and later the Israelites, but still one people, one race, and YAHWEH-God’s Israel people are dwelling now in earth.
According to the book of Jasher on the night of Abrams birth the men of King Nimrod’s court came to the home of the Prime Minister to drink and eat, to rejoice with Terah at the birth of his son. As they were leaving the home of Terah they lifted their eyes toward the heavens and they saw a strange thing. A star, a large star came from the east and it swallowed up four stars from the four sides of the heavens. Those watching were amazed, and they consulted among themselves as to the meaning of this. They decided that from the signs in the sky on this night of the birth of this son, born to Terah, that this child would grow up to be fruitful and would multiply and possess the earth.
AS WE TURN TO CONSIDER THE GREATNESS OF THIS EVENT, we realize that it is a good thing for Christians to recognize the birth of The Christ as the greatest individual event that happened in the course of the history of this earth. Without a doubt nothing was more important to our race since we were placed in the earth, than the return by the coming of The Christ, to our relationship with God. The most significant things concerning these events that we celebrate in our Christmas observance is the realization that almost 1/4 of a million years is involved in these developments. What would we mean by that since our race has only been on the earth for not quite 7400 years? Since the days from the coming out of the garden by Adam to Christ was 5400 years, and it has not been quite 2000 years since then thus making almost 7400 years then it must be because certain events were involved.
When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod, the king behold! There came wise men from the east saying: “Where is HE born KING in Judea?” For we have seen his star in the east and have come to worship him. If you will check the word Jew in your concordance you will find the word means as to a country, thus the above quotation is correct for Matt: 2:2. “We have seen his Star in the East”. How would they know which star to look for? In the east are thousands upon thousands of stars, a multiple of 10 times 126 trillion stars fill the sky from east to west and then north to south any single 24-hour day. How then would the Wise men have known that a king was to be born in Judea, and then say: “We have seen his star?”
QUESTION–-what about the ministry of YAHSHUA––what then did he preach?
ANSWER–-Today we hear that Jesus preached Salvation..that the kingdom he talked about is the church. That anyone who accepts Jesus Christ as their personal savior is a part of the church and the kingdom. That is all you need to know…heaven or hell.
We have told you much thru the tapes about the literal kingdom here on earth–-from the Swift tape ministry…so lets look at this again for this was the theme of the Saviors ministry. Lets see what the companion Bible has to say as well about Matthew 4:17–-’From that time Jesus began to preach and to say–-’Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand’. Since this was the proclamation also of the kingdom let’s look at the meaning of these words used in this King James translation. Preach means to proclaim–.to bring word down–-to bring it home by setting it forth..to make it known by spreading it far and wide.
FROM ELLA MAST––Many questions are asked and I have tried to put together a short answer from the Tape Ministry of Dr. Wesley A. Swift, and my understanding.’ Question:–What was the thorn in the Apostle Paul’s side?
Answer––-One of the major thorns in Paul’s side was his failing eye sight. He had a stigmatism and thus his poor eye sight was getting worse and worse. He found in his ministry that it was hard for him to read small print. He was writing great Epistles and letters were almost one inch high. This bothered him greatly because he felt that it hindered his work for YAHWEH and the church so he referred to this a thorn in his side.

(Finish the Abomination of the Desolator – From Tape 1)
DANIEL 7:27; THIS IS THE VERSE THAT THOSE WHO PREACH THE RAPTURE THEORY such as Hal Linsey used for their seven years of tribulation, but they are taking this prophecy, this verse out of context. This was the time of the crucifixion and that prophecy then was all completed in 70 A.D. Most of Daniel’s prophecies have been fulfilled, only that which is for this climax of the battle of Armageddon when Michael the Great Prince stands for Daniel’s people like he did in the beginning (Daniel 12:1). And that beginning was for us in the heavens at the time when Lucifer rebelled–-and we were there, and we watched in amazement.

Today’s Type of Socialism Leads to Communism
Marxist Socialism and Communism
1. Socialism leads to Communism.
We brought to you one of the stories of the reason for the rise of the KKK after the Civil War, and there are many. Then again we find that after WWI, the Clan rose from the ashes once again and was powerful over almost the entire United States. It was investigated by the Congress and it was proved that there was only a desire for the preservation of the race, the flag, and the Nation on the part of this organization.
Another witness as to this fact is the Book by Madison Grant entitled: ‘The passing of the Great Race’ written in 1921. I have a fourth revised edition with a Documentary supplement, with prefaces by Henry Fairfield Osborn, who was the Research Professor of Zoology, Columbia University. This book was also in the Swift Library and it was copyrighted 1916, 1918, and 1921–-the fourth edition revised and published August of 1921. In the preface Dr. Osborn writes:—-‘European history has been written in terms of nationality and language, but never before in terms of race, yet race has played a far larger part than either language or nationality is moulding the destinies of men. Race implies heredity, and heredity implies all the moral, social and intellectual characteristics and traits that are the springs of politics and government.
NOW THAT THE EASTER EGGS HAVE BEEN FOUND, THE BUNNY RABBITS FORGOTTEN, the many pageants performed, and great pilgrimages made…all in the name of Jesus Christ…we hope you had a quiet and happy RESURRECTION DAY and thought a bit about the significance of the work on the Cross which our Savior did for us. Did you think as to why this was necessary? Did you consider the significance of ‘The Cup’ at the last supper, and later in the Garden of Gethsemane as HE drank that cup of clear water? All of this was a part of the significance of ‘The Cup’___’The Cross’…for on that Cross YAHWEH in a human body as YAHSHUA-Savior told you that this part of the Great Mosaic was now finished. Thus it was that this then is a time to remember the past for sure but to also look forward to the future.
Don’t keep Him on the Cross for that work is done, look forward to the future for HE with that Cross renewed the covenant with us, and also made a new covenant with the House of Judah, and the House of Israel. This covenant did not depend on Israel keeping the ritual of the law, this was behind them, this covenant was because of the LOVE of the Father for His children, and only depends on His keeping of the covenant, for we can be disobedient children but still children even in chastisement.
