Is God a Racist? Will God destroy the righteous with the wicked? If so, Why? What can can we do about it? What does God expect of us?

By on

[This is an early version (not complete or polished) of Appendix E of my book, Sacred Truth Expository Commentary on Zechariah 4, which is 378 pages, paperback; now available.]

 

[Introductory Note: The word "Yahweh" is not a cultic expression.  Yahweh is God Almighty's Name, which has been kept hidden from His people by the use of GOD and LORD (when in full caps in most English Bible translations) or sometimes obscurred by the word Jehovah, which is an invented name; which inserts backwards the vowels of the Hebrew Name of God Adone (meaning, "sovereign, lord, master") among the consonants of the Hebrew Name of God YHWH (sometimes translated as "I am that I am" it means, "I exist"; that is, by His Own Power; thus, "the Self-existant One").  The letters "Y" and "J" and "I" are basically all the same letter; the J as pronounced (as in jam) in modern English is a relatively recent invention; the J used to be a Y as it still is in most languages (German, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Lithuanian, etc.).  Likewise, the "W" and "V" and the "U" used to be the same letter; that is why "W" is called "double-u."  The "W" was originally rounded "UU", then later the U and V became separate letters from the W (which took a more pointed shape like a V or "VV" as it was more suited to the chisel).  W in many Germanic languages is still pronounced V.  In classical latin, the V was sometimes pronounced U. 

There is power in God's Name.  Not magical power like an incantation, but because He is our God and He told His people to use His Name.  "Lord" and "God" are titles, not His Name.  "Lord" and "God" are fine to use, but Christ Himself said whenever we pray, we are to ask God the Father in His Name.  Christ's Name as currently used in English, "Jesus" is an Anglicization from the Latin Iesus, from the Greek 'Iesous, from the Hebrew Yehoshua.  Yehoshu, Christ's true Name, means, "Yahweh saved" or "saved of Yahweh".  Christ is not His Name, it is a title, the Anglicization from the Greek, which of the Hebrew word Anglicized as Messiah, meaning "annointed."  You don't say "David King," but "King David."  Likewise, the proper forms are "Jesus the Christ" or "Christ Jesus."  [Christ is not His last Name; it is a title that precedes His Name.]  However, though Christ knows who you mean when you use "Jesus," His Name is Yehoshua ...

(do you like people to use your name or just make up a name for you...? what about in a professional / legal setting, also in a situation where the utmost respect is due...?)

... and since Christ told us that when we pray we are to ask both Him and the Father in His Name, it behooves us to obey Him and use His Name.  Does it not...?

Without faith it is impossible to please God. 

Faith cometh by hearing the Word of God. 

Whatever is not of faith is sin. 

Faith without works is dead.

To him that knoweth to do good and doeth it not to him it is sin.

Do we actually fear God?  Do we actually love Him?  respect Him? want to obey Him?  God winks at our ignorance for a time; but there is also a period of time, a "critical period" or "window of opportunity" in which He expects us to come to the knowledge of the truth because He has commanded us to daily study His Word and if we were obeying Him in truly studying His Word—pouring over it; meditating on it (not just reading the words as fast as we can to get through a chapter for the day, while daydreaming)—if we were truly meditating upon His Word we would come to the knowledge of the truth in many areas in which we are ignorant.  If we do not truly study His Word daily as He commanded, then ignorance itself is a sin because ignorance then is a choice. ]

-----------------------------------

It needs to be pointed out that the "church" is none other than the redeemed of true Israel.

[The Anglo-Saxons and related peoples, while the Jews are actually the Canaanites of the Bible, who stole our name when God cast our ancestors out of the land for their unrepenant sin.  Those who think this is incredible to believe consider this — In YOUR lifetime you are seeing ENTIRE CONTINENTS and RACES OF PEOPLE COMPLETELY SUPPLANT the former inhabitants.   You have blacks and asians and jews and hispanics known as "Germans" or "Norwegians" or "Swedes" or "Americans;" though of course they are completely unrelated to the Germanic tribes who founded those nations.  If you have seen this complete replacement of one people of an entire nation (and the Muslims are threatening to take over all of Christendom) in a mere 50 or 75 years (and even more heightened in the past 20 years)... why do you think it is so impossible to believe that it happened over the past 2,500 years — especially since God told us in His Word it would happen...?  See my book Uncovering the Mysteries of Your Hidden Inheritance for indefatigable, documented evidence of this.]

The word "church" is the New Testament counterpart to the Old Testament congregation of Israel.  The New Testament word church is actually the Greek word (#1577) ek-klay-SEE-ah, which means, "called out ones."  God commanded the Israelites in Isaiah 51:

"1 Hearken to Me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek Yahweh: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.  2 Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him."

 

First of all, only literal descendents of Abraham and Sarah can look to them as their ancestors.

[See my S.T.E.C. on James 2 / Rahab...; which also covers most of the epistles of Peter, Paul, James, and John which show those of faith being of Abraham and many other passages used to "spiritualize" away the Covenants and Promises that God made with Israel, are misinterpreted.]

 

Further, is it just a coincidence?—is the fact that the word church means the "called out ones," and the fact that God declared that He "called Abraham and His seed alone" merely unrelated facts?  Do you need more proof?  In Isaiah 48:12, God declares, "Hearken unto Me, O Jacob and Israel, My called."

The Hebrew word here translated "called" is (#7121) kaw-RAW, which means, "to call out."

[The name Hebrew itself (#5680/5674) means, "one who crosses over."  Loosely, it may be considered "a colonist, a pilgrim."  The key point in understanding this is to realize that the reason Eber / Heber (the Patriarch for whom the Hebrews were named) "crossed over" or "migrated" was because, like Abraham, God called him to cross over.]

 

In numerous places Yahweh declares things like, "I am Yahweh your God, which have separated you from other people." (Leviticus 20:24)   When Israel sinned and mingled with other peoples, Yahweh again commanded the people of Israel, "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate..." (II Corinthians 6:17).  I have heard numerous, well-meaning but anti-intellectual Christians (who reject the Christian Anglo-Israel message), who will say things like: "Now, Robert, God is not a racist."  But sadly, this only shows their utter ignorance of God and His Word.  The Old Testament is the Standard by which everything in the New Testament is to be understood (though the New Testament undertakes some refined "tweaking" or fine tuning; the Old being planned by God to show us that the New upgrade was needed).  I would ask such a person, "Really... well then, is God a homophobe...?  Is God a sexist...?" 

God is Immutable.  He changes not.  His Law, His Will, His Plan are an extension of God’s Mind and they cannot change either.  The God of the New Testament is the same as the God of the Old Testament—and He is not now on Prozac, neither has He taken "Sensitivity Training" courses.  He is the same God today who ordered the wholesale extermination of the Canaanites; and who declared all mongrels and all inbred peoples forever outcasts and outside the Covenant.  When Israel sinned and intermarried with foreign women, God commanded them to divorce those illegitimate wives and send them and all children by them away forever.  God said bastards (mixed-breed offspring) were unacceptable to Him forever (and Christ said every plant His Heavenly Father did not plant would be rooted up... and He wasn’t talking about tomatoes).  Do you accuse God of sin in the Old Testament?  Why then would it be sin for Him today to be a "racist"...?  How could He be otherwise, since He is Immutable?

[These ideas of course go completely cross-grain with the ideas of the world; but that is why God said anyone who would be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.  God is Holy.  He cannot compromise.  We have strayed so far from the Standard that it appears strange—even wrong to us.  But God commands us to return to Him; He will not get down into the gutter and wallow in the mire with us.  Those in the unfortunately situation of being outside His Covenant have two options: 1. Throw themselves upon the Mercy of the Court and get with God's Program even if it renders you a second-class citizen; or 2. Rebel against God's clear commands and secure for yourself unavoidable and merciless Judgment.]

God cannot change.  He is the epitome* of the expression: "He is faultless to a ‘t’."  He declared that He chose only one people and one people alone—that is the first part of Predestination.  However, pure descent from Abraham cannot save you from Adam’s transgression.  Being a pure descendent of Abraham guarantees that you are a party to the Abrahamic Covenant (made only through the Child of Promise, Isaac).  Part of that Covenant was unconditional: God would never forsake His people; but part was conditional: If we sinned God would chastise us to repentance.  However, the second part of Predestination is Election unto Salvation through Christ: which is an Election within Predestination: Everyone elected unto salvation is a literal and pure descendent from Adam-Israel; but not everyone purely descended from Adam-Israel will be saved.  God chooses in both cases.  God is Sovereign.

[* A Greek word dðéôïìÞ pronounced eh-pit-oh-MEY (short o as in hop); which technically means, "to cut upon the surface or to cut short;" but refers to that which is a "summary, abstract, condensation, or abbreviated form," or more commonly, "one that is consummately representative of an entire class or type or an embodiment thereof."]

 

Just because one is a party to the Abrahamic Covenant does not mean he is automatically a party to the Christic Covenant—the New Covenant update of salvation which was made solely with the same people as the Old Covenant (Jeremiah 31:31ff. and Hebrews 8:8ff.).  The New Covenant did not scrap the Old Covenant: The New was an upgrade that corrected certain elements in the Old Covenant — but the fault was not in the Old Covenant itself; the fault was in sinful man (Hebrew 8:8, "finding fault with them" that is, with sinful Israel) who fell from Grace and was then rendered unable to keep it perfectly.  Even as programmers today program things into a program that they know will need to be changed, for their own job security, or to keep the consumer continually dependent on them, God does the same, but not for greedy reasons, but according to His Holiness and after the Counsel of His own Will.

The New Covenant could not do away with the Old, because the Old Covenant with Abraham pre-dated the Law given at Sinai and thus the Law could not nullify the Covenant (Galatians 3:17), but only be in harmony with it; and neither was the Law abolished.  Christ himself clearly said so, as did the Apostle Paul: but those who are spiritually cross-eyed cannot see simple truths because their minds are carnal and they are still in darkness groping toward the light (or in some cases, away from it all the while thinking themselves "enlightened").  The Holy Spirit will not guide into an understanding of God’s Word those who are in sin and who do not believe there is any need to repent.  God will hear no prayers of any in such condition.  Yes, the Spirit will convict, but if the believer continually ignores the prompting of the Holy Spirit, then they are given over unto a seared conscience; which conscience is then deadened even as the cauterized flesh of a wound, that is burned with a glowing hot knife to seal the wound to stop bleeding and prevent infection.

[Christ said,

"17Think not that I am come to destroy the Law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.  18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot* or one tittle* shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled." (Matthew 5)

* —not even the slightest pen stroke, such as the dotting of an i or crossing of a t, would pass away; much less the meaning of the letters, words, and sentences/propositions themselves.

 

Is all fulfilled?  Are we in the Eternal Kingdom?  Have sin and death and Hell been thrown into the Lake of Fire and are we now living in utopia and bliss under the Prince of Peace in a perfect world? 

Further, Christ said,

"Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least Commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven (on earth): but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven (on earth)." (Matthew 5:19)

how can any Christian then believe the Law was abolished when Christ Himself said it was not...?  Whose voice are they listening to...?  Not Christ’s; but the Serpent who in the Garden said, "Surely the Lord hath not said..." 

Such delusion is a choice (rebellion). 

God’s Word is clear.  Why would God Who declared, "Be holy for I am Holy" abolish His Moral Code by which He commanded us to live throughout all our generations forever...?  And not just the 10 Commandments (or the few of the 10 that modernists still feel like keeping, like changing God’s Sabbath to Sunday—and then not even hallowing it, but giving God an hour out of it).  The 10 Commandments are 10 categories of Law under which each Law of God is arranged.  None of the Law was abolished (not one jot or tittle, remember...?); the only part of the Law that "changed" was the blood sacrifices for atonement; and it was not abolished, but fulfilled in Christ’s Sacrifice.  Fulfilled does not mean abolished.  It means to make complete or full.  Christ not only said the Law was not abolished, He took it to a higher level to show sin (such as hate or lust) is committed when it is thought in the mind; not merely if it finds its way into actual expression through physical acts.]

 

Such "believers" (believers in what, I know not), then go through life in complete self-delusion, foolishly imagining that they are spiritual, when they are not; bearing counterfeit fruit that they will argue on the Day of Judgment was real: But they will be rebuked.  Whether God will deliver to repentance those given up to a seared conscience, I know not; but those who are on the way to being so given up by God’s Holy Spirit, can repent if they will obey* Scripture and examine themselves according to what God’s Word says—not according to what false Bible teachers hash out, in direct opposition and defiance to God’s Word.  Look at the fruit of these false prophets; compare what they say to Scripture.  But if you cannot think logically, you cannot understand Biblical logic and the Holy Spirit will lead you nowhere to which you are unwilling to go anyway.  God requires us to humble ourselves and submit to Him—submit ourselves to His Thoughts and His Ways which are not ours—to repent, confess our sins, and only then will He hear and deliver and guide and bless.

[* Scripture refers to those who obey or do not obey the Gospel (II Thessalonians; 1:8; I Peter 4:17; Hebrews 5:9).  How does one "obey" that which was allegedly "abolished"...?  How does one "obey" the Gospel, which is modernly touted to be "happy news of licentious living with all being forgiven, go sin as you please" ...?  Christ’s death was not a "Lawless Grace."  He was put to death because of our Lawlessness.  When Christ forgave people in the New Testament, He then added, "Go and sin no more...!"  Salvation is proved to be real when we obey God from the heart, not give dead lip-service, and not totally ignore God’s Law imagining it to have been abolished; which is asinine and nowhere to be found in Scripture unless you cut out the verses you like, paste them into another book in the order you like, and throw the rest of the Bible out. 

Further, please tell me why supposedly intelligent Christians think that God abolished His Perfect Law (read Psalm 19 and 119), but then expects us to follow the immoral laws of wicked man, and submit to every sort of legalistic denominational rule established in place of God’s Law...?  Modern false prophets (or blind shephards) falsely and illogically declare that those who teach that we are to keep God’s Law are "legalistic."  How can people be so ignorant?  Those who teach God's people to obey God’s Law (which God commands us to teach and to obey) are not legalistic, but lawful, moral, upright, obedient—and Christ promised that those who keep and teach it will be called "great" in the Kingdom; and those who violate it and teach others they can violate it, will be called "least." 

[This "calling" is not merely a name, but is a position of status of either blessing and honor or shame and ignominy.]

Those antinomians ("anti-law") who teach the opposite are immoral, lawless, disobedient.  Legalism is adding to the Law of God or replacing the Law of God with man’s perverse notions of morality—which is what most all "Christian" churches do, and which is what all governments do.  The Bible says to be a friend of the world is to be the enemy of God.  Choose sides!  Actually, you already have, by whom you choose to obey.]

 

The New Covenant was actually part of the Old: for since the time of the Adamic Covenant God promised Redemption and that Redemption was the Theme of the entire Old Covenant (Adamic, Noahic, Abrahamic, etc.), even as it is the Theme of the entire New (Revised) Covenant.  Keeping the Law did not save anyone in the Old Testament.  The Law was given in Eden and then transmitted from Patriarch to Patriarch by word of mouth, and when God deemed the time was appropriate, He updated the Law with new laws* when man’s "progress in degeneration" warranted new laws.  Sinai was the first giving of the Law in a codefied, written form to Israel as a nation; as opposed to the law having been established since Eden and then orally transmitted from Patriarch to Patriarch on an individual or familial basis).

[* —not laws that God "thought up" later; He had it all planned from the start.  But He did not burden us with Laws before they applied.  The day after your newborn has entered the world to breathe on his own, do you lay down all the ground rules?  What about when he is 5 years old, do you tell him rules about dating, college, using the family car?  Of course not.  All things in their time.]

 

Looking forward to the Lamb of God by faith in (through obedience to) the rituals of atonement (the blood sacrificing of innocent animals as a temporary covering for our sin because of our inability to keep the Law perfectly)—faith in God and repentance (bringing forth fruit meet for repentance as Christ declared, showing that the faith is real) is what saved in the Old Testament as well as the New.  However, faith without works is dead.  Works do not save; they are a by-product of faith.  If you put batteries in a toy or device and it doesn’t work, there is no life in the batteries.  If good batteries are placed inside the toy or device and the device does what it is supposed to, the actions do not create the energy in the batteries; but the batteries produce the works, which is proof the batteries contain energy.   If one "repents" and goes back out and sins on purpose, as if it does not matter—that is proof the Holy Spirit is not in such a person and that he was never truly converted.  Those who so sin with impunity only had a head knowledge of the truth (Hebrews 10:26ff.) and were never converted unto salvation.  Every tree is known by its fruit.  If we are truly grafted back into the very tree whence we were severed by Adam’s transgression, we will bear Christ’s fruit; if not, we will bare the Judgement of the unregenerate.

God does not lower His standards or compromise because man cannot live up to His expectations... that is why Christ came ... to die to pay the Judgment for our deliquency and immorality, and to them empower us to obey God from the heart through inward conversion; not offering mere lip-service of conformity in response to outward imposition.

Yes, God is a racist.  However, "racist" is not a bad word except in the minds of those who have been brainwashed by a Satanic society bent on the destruction of God’s creation and the defilement of Christ’s future Bride (the redeemed of true Israel).  "Racist" is only a bad word to those who have rejected the clear teaching of Scripture.  Was "racist" a bad word in the 1600s, 1700s, 1800s?  Which society was more godly, then or now...?

God told the Israelites to destroy the Canaanites—man, woman, child, and suckling infant.  Modern man would call that a hate crime, racist, genocide, ethnic cleansing, barbaric.  Drastic times call for drastic measures.

[No intelligent surgeon would maintain: "Now, it is not moral to cut this cancer/tumor out of your body.  This tumor/cancer has just as much a right to your body as any other cells.  Cancer and tumors have feelings too.  They bleed the same color blood as any other tissue.  You are an anti-tumorist / anti-cancerist.  You should be ashamed.  Diseases are human too.]

 

God declared the Canaanite peoples to be so vile that their extermination was the only recourse.  Those who do not understand God’s Holiness (and Sovereignty) cannot understand His Law or His Plan and those who do not understand God’s Holiness are not of God (or in the mere infancy of their spiritual understanding; most often still-born).  God forbade His people to intermarry with any other people and if they sinned and married outside the racial family, those alien wives and all children by them were to be sent away forever and were forever unacceptable to God.

[Those who cannot follow a plot and story line cannot understand Scripture.  God is Immutable.  He cannot change.  He gave us His Law and commanded we obey it throughout all our generations forever.  What part of "forever" don’t most Christians understand...?  What part of Almighty (Omnipotent) don’t they understand...?  What part of Lord (Sovereign) don’t they understand...?  God’s Mind does not change.  It cannot.  His Promises / Covenants cannot fail.  God’s Law is part of the Covenant; that conditional part that decides whether we receive God’s Blessing or Judgment.  Look at the nations of Christendom today; look how we have been invaded by the antichrist Third World and how we are not safe in our own cities; our cities are 95% antichrist foreigners, and we now are being told we have to embrace homos and all other religions and races who have more right to life in our own country than we do.  Tell me, is God blessing us or judging us...?  "The curse causeless shall not come" (Proverbs 26:2).  It does not take a rocket scientist to see we are under judgment, nor a genius to determine why.  God told us we would be blessed if we obeyed and chastened by our enemies if we forgot His Law (and He would forget our children).  What is the only thing then, that can result, from the brainwashing heresy that God’s Law was abolished...? —unremittant judgment.  Satan has created the perfect scam.  If we are in sin God cannot hear our prayers or bless us, much less deliver us.  If we think God’s Law was abolished, then the average Christian will be like a sparrow, sitting stunned after having flown into a plate glass window; having no clue why this evil has come upon him.  One cannot repent unless he realizes he is in sin and since sin is transgression of the Law, foolish Christians think they are without sin because the Law was abolished.  But it was not the Law that was abolished, but the curse of the Law (the judgment) that was against us; and Christ became that curse for us.  While we may be delivered from ultimate Judgment if we are truly under the Blood of Christ, if we are in sin, God must chasten us with our enemies to repentance.  The truth is in God’s Word.  God is not unfaithful.  The evil that has come upon us is not just "random."  We are reaping what we have and continue to sow.  The only hope is repentance and reformation (read the stories of the godly kings of Judah, like Josiah, and Hezekiah, when they realized they had departed from God’s ways and instituted reform—that is the only thing that will deliver us from Judgment).  See my books, What’s Keeping God From Delivering America, Britain, and Europe From Destruction...? and Deliverance or Delusion—Which Do We Want...?.]

 

Those who would claim that "God is not a racist," whether they realize it or not, have sided with the world instead of God—and God says,

"Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God." (James 4:4).

[Understand also that even as the word bastard primarily means someone born of mixed parentage (mongrel),  the word adultery incorporates the meaning of out of race relations and incorporates the commandment against fornication, beastiality, etc.  Adulter means to corrupt or pollute.  God rebuked His people for their whoredoms with other peoples (which in their day and locale was primarily the various Canaanite tribes; see my What Was the Mark that God Placed on Cain...? and my S.T.E.C. on Genesis and S.T.E.C. on James 2 and Rahab... to better understand who these Canaanites were and what their origin was.  God commanded against cross-breeding animals and plants too.  He is Creator and those who hybridize not only foolishly think they can improve on God's Creation, but in reality, they attempt do destroy His Creation.  The Redeemed of true Israel is Christ's bride (symbolically) and that is why the push toward the utter mongrelization of the white race has reached warp-speed.  Satan knows his time is running out.  Satan's goal is to utterly destroy Christ's bride so that He has no one to return to.  God promised to always preserve a remnant.  Satan thinks if he can utterly destroy that remnant, he will have proved God to not be the Almighty; and in the event Satan loses, like any other immoral person, he plans to take down as many of the innocent with him as he can.]

Well, what is the fate, what is the remedy, what is the course of action to be followed by people who claim to be Christians, but who are of mixed blood...?  Well, I will tell you this.  No one can know with 100% certainty that he is pure.  There is no test for purity unless there is a known pure sample, and Adam’s corpse has never been found.  DNA testing can tell you if you have (known) impurity, but it cannot tell you if you are pure and they can only test for what they know to test for (and there is no proof that they understand what they think they know).  Therefore, even those who have no reason to believe they have any blood impurity, must still walk by faith and not by sight.  We do not trust in our bloodlines, and certainly not in our "choosing" salvation, but we trust in God Who is the one who chooses.  Those who know they have blood impurity and those who at least think they do, can do no other than walk by faith and do what is right.  If someone only believes and submits to the truth if he thinks he has something to benefit from it, and then turns from the truth if he learns (or thinks) that he will not have a payoff—such a person never believed the truth; he was merely using it for his own means as long as it fit in with his idea of what he wanted reality to be.  The only solution is to obey God and trust in God, that maybe He has a plan for those outside the Covenant—and throw themselves upon the mercy of the Court.  That is the only thing that God can bless.  God cannot bless those (whether His children or not) who attempt to unseat God from His Throne, by declaring God’s Law invalid and by thinking they have the authority and power to tell God what He is and is not allowed to do.  Psalm 2 talks about these fools who think they can cast off the boundaries of rule and morality that God established.  God laughs at them, knowing they are but dust that He soon will blow away.

Christ commanded: "Occupy till I come."  Christendom is about to be exterminated because we have turned our backs on God and the only thing that will save us is true repentance but modern Christendom does not know how to repent because they have been brainwashed thinking the enemy is our brother and thinking God’s Law—God’s Moral code by which He expects us to live—was "abolished;" even though Christ said He did not come to abolish the law and not one jot or tittle will pass from the Law till all be fulfilled.  The Jewish existential psychologist Viktor Frankl said one intelligent thing: "The statue of Liberty in the east should be balanced out by a statue of responsibility in the west."  With blessing—and even forgiveness*—comes responsibility.

[* See Matthew 18:23-35.]

 

Christ said that every tree is known by its fruit and that we were called (ordained) unto good works, that we are to bear fruit—His fruit... and that fruit, those good works is obedience to God’s Moral Code: His Law (what else could it be...?)  The Law never saved.  It could not.  It is the "House Rules" God expects His children to follow.  At the time of Adam’s transgression man was rendered unable to keep the Law perfectly, but that did not absolve Adam (or us) of responsibility before God.  That is why Christ died.  God did not "compromise" (for He cannot; Perfection and Holiness and Immutability cannot compromise: for that is change and if Perfection and Holiness changed, all it could change to would be imperfection and unholiness—and God cannot change).  Since God cannot change (and abolish His Law which He decreed forever) because we could not live up to His expectations; Christ died to take the penalty God demanded so that we would then walk in newness of life, in obedience from the heart empowered by the Holy Spirit in us.

If "Christians" do not walk in newness of life, obeying God’s Law sincerely from the heart, it is proof that the Holy Spirit is not in them and they are not converted (or that they were still born or they are spiritually profoundly retarded and their growth was terribly stunted).  Faith without works is dead.  Works do not cause life; they are proof of life.  A baby’s kicking and screaming does not make it alive, but is proof it is alive.  A tree does not become an orange tree because it bears oranges, it bears oranges because it is an orange tree.  Those who will survive the Wrath to come when God shakes the heavens and earth will be those who have the Testimony of Yehoshua the Christ and who keep the Commandments of God (which Revelation tells us twice: 12:17; 14:12).  The good works do not save but are proof that we are saved (and though Revelation 22:14 may make it sound as if the works save, they do not; for the rest of Scripture tells us so—Romans 3:20; Galatians 2:13—therefore, the obedience to God’s Law is proof that Christ is truly in us; that we are truly converted).

Love is shown by works, obedience.  Jesus said, "If you love Me, keep My Commandments."  What were His Commandments? — to do the work of His Father which is Heaven.  Scripture tells us that Christ was tempted in all areas even as we are yet without sin.  What is sin?  The apostle John defines it in one of the last books of the New Testament that was written, in one of his epistles: "Sin is transgression of the Law" (I John 3:4).  If a parent tells his child not to play in the mud and the child rebels and does so anyway... when the child repents (which usually only occurs after chastening) and is forgiven, does that abolish the law against playing in the mud?  Of course not.  It removes the curse of the Law—judgment; not the Law itself.  That he Law itself was abolished in forgiveness is anti-intellectual; the hallmark of  the irresponsible age in which we live.  All the signs in the news are signs that God is not with us.  Choose sides.  I am on the Lord’s side.  I am for our people, our culture, our faith, our nation... and the nations of Christendom.  He who has ears to hear, please let him hear...  I don’t preach these sermonettes because I think I am better than anyone else; but because I care about our people, our nation, our faith and don’t want to be exterminated.  How about you?  Read the history of how prosperous God’s people were during the rule of godly men like David, Hezekiah, Josiah, etc.  Then read the terrible fate they suffered, a supreme tragedy, when they turned from God’s Ways to follow the ways of the heathen.  History has repeated itself.  God said it would.  But the remedy is still the same, if we are to avert destruction:

"If My people, which are called by My Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My Face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." (II Chronicles 7:14)

 

The Northern House of (10-tribed) Israel went into captivity over a century before the Southern House of Judah.  Northern Israel (including "Northern" Israel’s southern territory of Simeon) was then filled with vile foreign peoples.

"And the king of Assyria brought men from Babylon,*1 and from Cuthah,*2 and from Ava,*3 and from Hamath,*4 and from Sepharvaim,*5 and placed them in the cities of Samaria*6 instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof." (II Kings 17:24)

[*1 Initially a pure Semitic people, as were the Assyrians, who both eventually mongrelized.  Babylon was revitalized when the pure Chaldeans (descendents of Shem’s son Arphaxad) descended into lower Mesopotamia and overthrew the Babylonian monarchy and established themselves as its head (Nebuchadnezzer, being a Chaldean, a pure Semite,** is why he was eventually converted).  As we have seen repeatedly, Babylon means, "confusion by mixing" ("bastard" or "mongrel" could easily be a loose interpretation).

{** The Jews are not actually Semites; that is the dishonest race card they play when it suits them; their black magic incantation by which they cast a spell on whoever opposes their evil.  The Jews are descendents of the Canaanites.  The Canaanites were not Semitic, but incestuous Hamites who then intermarried with the seed of Cain.  Again, see my books mentioned above (What Was the Mark...? etc.).}

*2 koo-THAW; Strong indicates that it was a province of Assyria, but does not define it; it being a foreign word.  However, Jackson and also Cornwall & Smith define it in their dictionaries as "a place of crushing."

*3 av-VAW or iv-Vaw; a place in Assyria, meaning, "overthrown."

*4 a Canaanite tribe (Genesis 10:17).

*5 sef-ar-VAH-yim or sef-aw-REEM, also a place in Assyria, which Strong does not define, but Jackson and Cornwall & Smith define as "census of the sea."  In Scripture the sea represents all the vile abominations of the earth.  Out of it come the beast kingdoms.  In the Kingdom of God, Scripture informs us "there will be no more sea."  "Census of the sea" implies all the vile creatures and putrid waste and bottomfeeders from the sea.  It seems quite possible that one branch of the Jews (ironically, those who think they are of a more noble heritage than their cousins) takes their name from this people: for Jewry is divided into Sephardim and Ashkenazim.

*6 King Omri of Northern Israel made, actually built the mount of Samaria as his capital.  Northern Israel is often referred to as Samaria, as well as Ephraim (or Joseph) in Scripture.  However, it was all these mingled peoples who became known as Samaritans, when the tiny remnant returned from Babylon, up into and through Christ’s day. 

Also, even as follows the natural law of gases, when a void is created, gaseous elements will rush in to fill the void, when the Israelites were deported from the land, Canaanite peoples most assuredly rushed back in on their own, to possess the land from which their ancestors had been exterminated or expelled nearly a millennia earlier.  Further, the Edomites (who in Christ’s day predominate Church and State, the Edomite Herods being established by Rome and the Herods establishing their own into the priesthood) and Amalekites imagined the land doubly theirs, since Jacob (by God’s Design) had swindled and tricked Esau out of his birthright and blessing.  Esau, Isaac’s firstborn (though Jacob may have actually been born first, had not the larger, stronger Esau wrestled his smaller brother in the womb out of the position to be born first) would have inherited the bulk of Isaac’s wealth, including the land.  Esau despising his own birthright, people, and God, married Canaanite women (and then established himself as a powerful warlord and exterminated his inlaws and made his mongrel sons their dukes).  They no doubt frequently heard their forefather Esau bemoan all that he had lost due to his brother’s treachery.  Once Israel was deported, no doubt they saw it as their opportunity to take back what they considered twice theirs (having been dispossessed by the Israelites after the exodus, and then having been dispossessed by Jacob’s trickery).  In fact, this is what Ezekiel 11 seems to indicate:

"14Again the Word of Yahweh came unto me, saying, 15Son of man, thy brethren, even thy brethren, the men of thy kindred, and all the House of Israel wholly, are they unto whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, Get you far from Yahweh: unto us is this land given in possession.  16Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord Yahweh; Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come.  17Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord Yahweh; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will [again] give you the land of Israel.  18And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence.  19And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh: 20That they may walk in My Statutes, and keep Mine Ordinances, and do them:* and they shall be My people, and I will be their God.  21But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their own heads, saith the Lord Yahweh."

* Here is further evidence that God’s Law was never abolished.  This is clearly talking about the Kingdom (cross-reference Jeremiah 31:34 and Hebrews 8:11); it is not in reference to the return of the tiny remnant from Babylon.

Thus, even as in our lands now in our day, a mixed multitude predominates, so also it was in Christ’s day, and that is why He spoke in parables: so only His sheep would hear and understand; once the Holy Spirit ripened the truth in the minds of those whom God would call out of darkness into His marvellous Light.

In fulfillment of prophecy, because of our unrepentant sin (and pretending there is nothing we need to repent of, imagining God’s Law no longer applies: a rather infantile mindset steeped in rebellion and fantasy) the enemy that is among us became the head and we the tail (in Christ’s day in the land of Israel and in our day now in all the nations of Christendom).  In fulfillment of prophecy, once Esau’s progeny grew strong enough (only when God’s people grew weak as the result of turning from their God, even as we see in the sad story of Samson), Edom would throw off the yoke of Jacob and oppress Jacob.  Then we find ourselves in the time of Jacob’s Trouble, as a result of Israel’s continued refusal to heed God’s warning, repent, and reform their ways.  Soon we shall experience God shaking of heaven and earth as He rains down His Judgment on all: to separate the chaff from the wheat and the wheat from the tares: to bring His people to repentance and calcify the wicked against Him to fill up to the brim the full measure of God’s Wrath for all the righteous blood ever shed upon the earth from the present all the way back to Abel (whom Cain, who was of the Evil One, slew).  It is these Samaritans (mingled Canaanite and other mongrel peoples) who now infest the Land of Promise, headed by the Serpent’s Brood, who masquerade as God’s Chosen People—fooling God’s true Chosen People (the pure remnant of the Anglo-Saxon and related peoples of Christendom) into supporting them (God’s very enemies) in their evil plan to destroy Christendom itself (the bride of Christ) in Satan’s attempt to unseat God.  Christ's bride is committing whoredom and does not even realize it; fooled by the seduction of the serpent into thinking such adultery is the highest form of "Christian love."]

It is not the "land" of Israel that God loves: the geographic dirt.  God is not like modern corrupt churches, where all they want is "warm bodies" in the pew; it not mattering who they are.  God does not hire "professional worshippers" as the hypocritical practice in ancient times was to hire "professional mourners" during a funeral: people who were paid to wail and cry, not knowing and not caring about the deceased or their loved ones; just hired to "put on a good show" (and that is the pretense that the Pharisees put on before God: pretending to "fast" and "pray"; but God was not fooled).  God is not interested in virtual reality; but reality.  Virtual reality is for those who have no life of their own.

How empty it would be for a football team to know that the entire crowd in the bleachers cheering for them was there only because they were being paid to cheer; that the crowd could really care less which team won or lost; not knowing the players’ names or even caring to—not even watching the game, but just giving a good show of cheering every now and then at what seemed like the right time (or on cue when a director held up a large card saying "cheer" or "boo").

Imagine the hollow, senseless emptiness of a man who has to hire a woman and some children to "pretend" to be his wife and children when he goes to his high school or college class reunion.

Well, God is not interested in mere warm bodies.  He chose one people and one people alone to be His people.  To Him it does matter who it is and it does matter if their internal dynamics (heart and mind) are real; that their words and actions are not faked just for show.

The Israelites of the Northern Kingdom were cast into captivity, scattered throughout the world in fulfillment of prophecy and the land of the former Kingdom of Israel was then populated with the refuse from other nations.  These people did not then become "God’s new people."  God did not want them as children or servants or worshippers. 

Scripture tells us that from the womb the wicked do evil (Psalm 58:3) and that God loved Jacob and hated Esau before they were even born (Romans 9:11-13); even the ploughing or the lampof the wicked — their very nature, everything they do, is wicked (Proverbs 21:4) for it proceeds from an evil nature.  God is Good, not because He does things sinful men consider good, but because God is Good and anything He does is good.  Those who deny this are those who have the curse of God upon them:

"20Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!  21Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! .... 24Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the Law of Yahweh of hosts, and despised the Word of the Holy One of Israel.  25Therefore is the Anger of Yahweh kindled against His people, and He hath stretched forth His Hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills [small nations] did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets.   For all this His Anger is not turned away, but His Hand is stretched out still." (Isaiah 5). 

The only way to avert this is to repent of perverting justice and attempting to redefine morality in any way other than what God has declared.  God defines Goodness.  Man’s only response is to submit to God.  Anything less will bring Judgment.

[* The Hebrew word in this passage can mean either "lamp" or "ploughing", and I explain in detail on p.305ff. of my S.T.E.C. on John 18-21.®]

Scripture tells us that those who are not God’s people (or at least, those not of the elect) will declare to Christ on the Day of Judgment, "but did we not do all these good works in Thy Name?" — but to them Christ will reply: "Depart from Me ye that work iniquity, I never knew you."  These are not people who were going around committing abominations in broad daylight; these were people who were doing things that appeared to be good works; but different than what God commanded.  God did not give us "multiple choice" concerning worship or obedience.  He is Holy.  He commanded what morality is; there is no room for deviation.  He is Holy.  He commanded the only worship acceptable to Him; but like Cain, many will offer what they want, what they consider good works, a good substitute for what God commanded; but like Cain, their offering and they themselves will be rejected.  God is Holy and He can only be offered that which is Holy and He has declared what that is; but sinful "Christians" think God must conform to what they are willing to offer; what modernist denominations consider, "more refined and progressive."  God declared the only presecription for repentance, obedience, salvation.  Those who follow any other prescription are self-medicating fools, drunk on the wine of Babylon and will one day have a rude awakening when their spiritual narcotic delusion immediately evaporates (like a singular drop of water on a red-hot skillet) in the face of the heat of the Judgment Seat of Christ before the Great White Throne.

Those who are not God’s people (and especially if they are the vessels of wrath) can do nothing to please Him.  They do what they do because they are vessels of wrath and can do no other.  They may delude themselves and others with the appearance of doing good; but as God declared, a bad tree cannot bring forth good fruit; neither a salty fountain fresh water.

[This seems incomprensible to us.  However, God clearly says that His Thoughts and Ways are as high above ours as the Heavens are above the earth.  My, how supposedly intelligent Christians entirely forget or ignore the sublime truth of that passage, when they reject God’s Sovereignty and Predestination in favor of a more comfortable humanistic Arminianism ("free will" of man).  What part of—

"8For My Thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My Ways, saith Yahweh.  9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My Ways higher than your ways, and My Thoughts than your thoughts" (Isaiah 55)

don’t they understand...?  God also declared: "thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove [rebuke and correct] thee, and set them in order before thine eyes." (Psalm 50:21)  God also revealed:

"18Therefore hath He mercy on whom He will have mercy, and whom He will He hardeneth.  19Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth He yet find fault?  For who hath resisted His Will?  20Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God?  Shall the thing formed say to Him that formed it, Why hast Thou made me thus?*" (Romans 9)

* Or, we could add...

as most modern Christians — who are bleeding-heart liberals (whether they realize they are so or not), suffering from spiritual "survivor guit syndrome" (can you imagine...! suffering guilt because God has blessed them...! because God did not equally bless everyone else... as if God does not know what He is doing...!) may question —

"Why did You not make all people to be like me...?  Why did you not make everyone to be Your children...?" 

Sadly, most people (Christians included) in the modern world are anti-intellectual.  You would think it actually hurts their brains to think, and so they do as little thinking as is humanly possible (as if the government taxes them each time they think...!).  If you stop to think about anything (allowing God’s Holy Spirit to guide you based upon the facts established in God’s Word—not based upon confused, invalid emotions that clutter man’s fallen heart), truth will become clear: for if you are of God and walking where the Holy Spirit walks, He will lead you into all truth. 

How could God have a special people whom He alone loved, if everyone was equal...?  What would His Love then mean?  It would be a card-board cut out, factory-stamped generic love and then what even is love if there is no hate?  Hate is a necessity in a world defiled by sin and evil.  These concepts sound foreign to those whose minds have been saturated with the polluted humanistic thoughts of Antichrist; to those who are perishing in their own humanistic delusion; to those whose minds have been marinated in the polluted world.  God Himself commands: Ye who love Yahweh hate evil and To love Yahweh is to hate evil.

But note the clear syntax; the clear order and distinction.  The converse or reverse of those statements is not the same thing.  'To hate evil is to love Yahweh' is not the same thing; the truth of the proposition is not reflexive.  To claim that 'To hate evil is to love Yahweh' is a true statement would make God the "by-product" of our hate.  God is not a by-product: He is the Source.  We are not the determining factor: God is.  If one truly loves God (true love being defined as obedience) he will hate evil.  How can one hate evil if one does not know what it is?  He cannot.  How can one know what evil is?  Only by reading what God’s Word is and by faith accepting it (without faith, it is impossible to please God) and acting upon it (faith without works is dead).

 

But again, what do the passages quoted (Isaiah 55 and Romans 9 vv.18-20 on p.257 and vv. 11-13 on p.255*) mean if God’s Ways perfectly mesh with what is comfortable to our tiny, sinful, faulty, unholy minds...?

[* These of course are references to things discussed in my book, S.T.E.C. on Zechariah 4, of which this article is the excerpt of one appendix.]

I am reminded of some cartoon, the name of which I have no memory and the content of which is a paraphrase from a vague memory:  A pretty girl walks by a boy she knows and says, "I love you Jimmy!"  The boy, of course, is elated.  He is floating on ‘Cloud 9’ — but he is rudely and quickly brought back to cruel reality, when he observes the pretty young girl continue strolling by, then patting a dog on the head, saying, "I love you dog!"  Then seeing a bird singing in the tree, she exclaims, "I love you bird!"  Then seeing a pretty rock she pats it and says, "I love you rock!"  Then, as she continues along her way licking her ice cream cone, she exclaims, "I really love ice cream!"  I think you get the picture.  What then is love?  Is it special?  Does it mean anything if everything is "loved" equally...?  If God chose you, is the proper response to reject that love if He did not choose everyone else to your satisfaction. 

Who then do you recognize as God...?  God or yourself...?  Is God supposed to act according to your dictates or you to His?  Do you show love and appreciation to God by doubting His Goodness for not decreeing the world to operate based upon your clearly superior understanding and morality?  Why did God not create you first, before He created anything else, so that He could have consulted you on how to create the rest of His Creation...?  Does anyone get the picture?  There is a reason why God declares to Jacob, "thou worm" [maggot] and that we are "but dust."  That is all we are apart from His Grace—which the majority (including Christians) spurn because it is not what they want it to be.  They then invent their own religion and insultingly call it "Christianity;" when it is not.  It is humanism and paganism and it is immoral and antichristian.  Instead, they brazenly declare, "We will not have this Man to reign over us" (Luke 19:14) and "Let us break their [God and Christ’s] bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us." (Psalm 2:3).  The sad fate of those who rebel against God is revealed in the verses that follow those passages.  God has made us His very son; co-heirs with Christ; kings and priests.  Yet when we reject the rules that come with this status, we reject the status and choose instead to be worms and dust; pouting like 5-year olds because God won’t play by our rules (thinking we can hold our breath until reality changes, that if we close our eyes reality ceases, that because we deem something "unfair" the laws of the universe miraculously change to please us).  For shame!  God deliver Your people from all delusion!

It then becomes clear to those who are honest (it really does not take much intelligence, just honesty), that this is not a matter of understanding, but acceptance.  It is not a matter of intelligence, but submission.  It is not that man cannot understand these things when viewed from the proper perspective, it is that sinful people (yes, most Christians included) do not like the Ways of God.  Men prefer darkness, rather than light, because their deeds are evil.  The carnal mind is enmity (at war) against God and cannot receive the things of God and refuses submission to God and His Decrees.

The only true test of obedience is when someone under authority does that which he does not want to do, yet does it as if it was something he wanted to do.  How is God actually "God" and "Lord" to the average "Christian" when the average "Christian" rejects what God has clearly said, because he does not like God’s ideas...?  The concepts God and Lord* require submission to the Mind of God (revealed in His Word and specifically in His Law).  The average Christian rejects these things (even those who have come out of the modern harlot church) when they reject the boundaries that God established (race, gender, headship, diet, Sabbath, etc.) because they like something different. 

* Lord means Sovereign.  The average Christian rejects the Sovereignty of God (in favor of the "free will" of man).  How then can he call God or Christ, "Lord"...?  He does so out of dishonesty or out of ignorance (and God is not fooled by such insults regardless of their pathology: "Why call ye Me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things I say?").  God is not "semi-sovereign."  Christ is not "quasi-king."  God is not the "mostly-almighty."  Christ is not "limited-lord."  Though that is what most Christians believe: because that is how they act—choosing to live however they deludedly think is "better" than the Ways God commanded (deeming them to be wiser and more moral than God Himself) and engaging in sophomoric spiritual gymnastics and showing themselves accomplished theological contortionists in deftly twisting and "explaining away" every passage of Scripture that conflicts with their self-gratifying humanism they delude themselves as being "Christianity."

 

Therefore, most "Christians" reveal themselves to not be Christians at all.  How can a Christian be a Christian if Christ is not his Lord...?  How can a Christian be a Christian if he does not follow Christ, but chooses to go in an altogether-different direction in which he wants to go instead...?  How can a Christian be a Christian if he does not obey God...?  He cannot.

In reality, most Christians are pagans, who have invented their own panoply of gods (while deluding themselves into thinking it is the God of the Bible) whose whimsical, easy-going, ever-changing, agreeable "religion" they claim to follow—when, in reality, they worship themselves as god and project their notion of godhood onto the false god they themselves have created in their own minds, fashioned after what they think God should be.  And they dance around in pretense and expect God to be pleased with them.  Yet, sadly— tragically —they may very well hear Christ say: "Depart from Me, ye that work iniquity, I never knew you!"  True Christianity is God-centered, revelationally based (determined by what God said), and is unchanging.  The modern counterfeit "Christianity" of the harlot church is human-centered and experiencially based (determined by man’s experience and what he deems is good for himself), and is ever-changing.  Thus, those who are not spiritually dead, will be sobered to reality with the Biblical admonition:

"Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Christ Yehoshua is in you, except ye be reprobates?" (II Corinthians 13:5)

In reality, there is only one other alternative if things are not of God.  They are of Satan.  Oh, of course, mankind deludes himself by giving the plethora of alternatives to God’s Command and Pure Religion their own individual names and by imagining that all other religions have value and equal legitimacy.  Most Christians likewise delude themselves with the same illogic, concerning many who are not Christians—false religions, various cults, and false denominations of Christianity.  Christians may even attempt to split theological hairs by saying "there is the world, the flesh, and the Devil."  Yes, but there is a chain of command.  There would be no evil world without sinful men and there would be no sinful men if not for the tempations of Satan.  God created all to play out His Divine Masterpiece, but that does not absolve any of culpability because that is what God decreed; and to demand that such is "immoral, unholy, or that it does not make sense" is to reject the Thoughts and Ways of God being so incredibly above our pathetic own and it is a rejection of His Sovereignty.  There is only one evil power source in the universe in the age-old struggle between good and evil.  Satan. 

[NOTE: I did not say an "equal" power source; that NONSENSE itself was concocted by Satan and swallowed hook, line, and sinker by those who are spiritually blind (see my books, God and Evil,® and What the Devil?®).]

Those who choose anything other than what God commanded choose the only other option, regardless of the nice-sounding name and bright shiny lights that promote it.

"Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God." (James 4:4).

Note also: Friendship with the world also entails friendship with the harlot church that perverts the Word of God in order to maintain their 501-C3* status, having watered down and corrupted the pure doctrine of God’s Word to please not merely Caesar, but the Antichrist, and to cater to every delusion and perversion of those who delude themselves that they are worshipping God by doing everything but that which God commanded.

* "tax exempt" (conscience- and God-devoid).]

If there is any hope for those who are not God’s people Israel, the only recourse is true repentance.  But no one can do that which is not in them to do.  The true doctrine of the Word of God clearly reveals that there is nothing good in anyone, not even the best of God’s people.  It is God’s Spirit alone that draws His elect unto Him and it is God’s Spirit alone that draws the elect of the elect to actually desire to deny sin and self and truly and fully serve God.  That of course does not mean that those who are not of Israel should give up.  As the old saying goes: "If you think you can do something, you are right.  If you think you can’t, you are right again."  Now, this is offered only in a limited fashion and is not to suggest any humanist hogwash such as the power of positive thinking.  Postive thinking has its valid place.  Scripture says, "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he."  However, each man thinks in his heart, as he does, because of God’s predestination.  Any argument to the contrary is humanism and a rejection of God’s Lordship (Sovereignty), Omnipotence, Omniscience, and Goodness.*  Those who do not truly repent, who do not apply themselves, who do not do what is right, who give up and live as they please, are not of God.

[* But again, the average Christian rarely ever truly thinks, and has never truly plumbed the depths of his theological error (let alone even dipped his toe in the shallow end).  The pagan philosopher’s motto was "Know thyself."  While true, it is only part of the picture.  As we saw, God declared, As a man "thinketh in his heart, so is he" (Proverbs 23:7).  The difference between pagan philosophy and true religion (found only in the Word of God) is that God alone tells us how we should think.  "Those who worship God must worship Him in Spirit and Truth" (John 4:24).  "Now therefore fear Lord, and serve Him in sincerity and in truth" (Joshua 24:14).  Sincerity means obedience from the heart; not mere lip service.  Serving the Lord, worshipping the Lord, and obeying the Lord are all synonyms.  (See also I Samuel 15:22).  Truth means based upon the facts of God’s Word.  "Without faith it is impossible to please God" (Hebrews 11:6).  Faith comes not from man’s emotional quirks, but from God’s own declarative propositions.  "...faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God" (Romans 10:17).  However, to throw a monkey wrench into the mix, Scripture also says, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" (Jeremiah 17:9)  The only resolution is that we can only know it by God’s Grace and we can only know when we submit to God.  "God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble." (4:6; I Peter 5:5).  "Humble yourselves therefore under the Mighty Hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time" (I Peter 5:6).  "Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you.  Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded" (James 4:8).  Here is what the only man in Scripture whom God called, "a man after Yahweh’s Own Heart" had to say:

"9Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to Thy Word.  10With my whole heart have I sought Thee: O let me not wander from Thy Commandments.  11Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee." (Psalm 119)

Here is what that man’s son, the wisest man ever to walk the earth, also admonished us:

"13Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His Commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.  14For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil." (Ecclesiastes 12)

There is no other prescription.  There is no other remedy.  There is no other worship.  There is no other service.  There is no other way to please God.  God expects obedience of His children; and if those who claim to be God’s children do not obey and do not receive God’s chastisement to lead them to repentance, then God declares that they are bastards and not His children.  That should be a sobering thought.  Works do not save.  The Law does not save.  Those illegitimate smoke-screens are Satan’s method of leading God’s children into disobedience so that they cannot be victorious and so God has to chasten—even destroy them if they do not repent.  Salvation comes 100% through faith in Christ and that faith is a gift that does not originate in us, but which God bestows upon His elect: It is not a "brass ring" that anyone who wants can just grab ahold of while on the spiritual merry-go-round, any more than anyone can force their way into the sheepfold or enter in any manner other than lawfully by invitation through the Gate; which is Christ.  Only sheep are admitted into the sheepfold and nowhere in God’s Word does He unveil any plan to "convert" goats, pigs, or dogs into sheep (which is in violation of His Law of "Everything After Its Kind" and the "Law of the Harvest").  If one is truly in Christ, and Christ is truly in Him, the individual having been drawn to Christ, confessed his sin, repented, pleaded the Blood of Christ, and submitted to Him as Lord, then he will walk in obedience to the Law of God because that is the only way that Christ and the Holy Spirit will lead.  If he does not, then he "hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the Blood of the Covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of Grace" (Hebrews 10:29).  That is a sobering thought.]

Once Northern Israel was deported and the king of Assyria moved in the vile refuse of other lands, God did not say, "Okay, business as usual, you all pick up where Israel left off."  As a choir director who gets an entirely new choir, God did not merely pass out the scores of music and say, "Okay, take it from the top."  No, they were not His people and never would be—and that applies as much today as it did 2,500 years ago.  Yet modern Christians (clergy and laypeople alike) overlook this in nearly every area of their life and not a single area of their doctrine has not been corrupted with this Antichrist supplantation.  It is communism that teaches "One race, one religion, one creed."  God commands:

"17... come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith Yahweh and touch not the unclean [people]; and I will receive you, 18And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, saith Yahweh Almighty." (II Corinthians 6)

and

"25Ye shall therefore put difference between clean beasts and unclean ... which I have separated from you as unclean. 26And ye shall be holy unto Me: for I Yahweh am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine." (Leviticus 20). 

It is the atheistic evolutionists who teach that we came from monkeys and it is evolutionistic "Christians" who espouse the universal brotherhood of man heresy.  A simple understanding of biology and 6,000 years of history (including current events, whether in the heart of Africa or our inner cities) clearly dispels this absurd notion; that is, if a person is not hopelessly strung out on the heroine of humanism and brainwashed with socialism and evolution (and all the spurious lies laminated one over the other in among truth, in the disciplines of anthropology, sociology, and psychology) and if one has not been spiritually lobotomized and constipated with Antichrist "theology" from infancy.  Adamkind alone was made in God’s Image.  All races do not come from Adam.*

[*  That heresy violates the very first Natural Law God established in Creation (which He mentioned 10 times—which represents Divine Perfect Order—in the first chapter of Genesis; and that which God says first stands and cannot be contradicted): "Everything after its own kind."   See my, The Creation of Man....®]

When the House of Judah returned from captivity (as we have seen [earlier in my book, S.T.E.C. on Zechariah 4]), they rejected any and all assistance or co-worship with the Samaritans and other mingled peoples.  Profoundly blind commentators refer to this as the "prejudice" of the Israelites...!  These "experts" in their ignorance insult godly men like Nehemiah and Ezra and impute sin unto them from their own carnal hearts and shallow understanding of God’s Word (and note: if your understanding of the waters of God’s Word is shallow, the waters are murkey because you are mostly stirring up mud as you blindly flail about).

How those 100+ years after Northern Israel’s deportation must have served as a warning and sober reminder to the Southern House of Judah...! —knowing that the lands all around them in which their kinsmen, their brothers used to live, were now occupied with pagan-third world trash.  But sadly, it did not produce the effect in their dead hearts and minds any more than it does to us today in our countries in which the very same thing has happened and for the very same reason.

The Southern House of Judah (the tribes of Judah, Benjamin, and Levi) were then also conquered and they were deported to Babylon, and the King of Babylon, likewise, imported third world refuse to pollute the land of Southern Judah.  All these corrupt peoples conglommerated into what are now known as Jews, with the predominate blood being the Canaanites (specifically, Edomites*).

[* The Book of Obadiah is a specific prophecy against Edom.  It does not contain a nice cotton-candy, politically correct ending in which all the colors of the rainbow join hands and sing "We Are The World" and "Kumbayah."]

 

At one time in God’s history God declared that He would destroy the just with the unjust (Ezekiel 18:24ff; 21:3,4; 33:12ff.).  Why on earth would God do that?  Well, the passages also explain: The righteous cannot rest on their laurels and coast on their past righteousness.  If they turn from righteousness to wickedness, their former righteousness is as if it never existed.  This is not talking about losing your salvation.  This is talking about judgment in this life if we "play chicken" with God’s Longsuffering.  Those who do so choose to become roadkill.  The New Testament itself talks about those believers who so utterly apostacized that they were turned over to Satan for destruction of the body, though the spirit would live.  The only reason that God would destroy the just with the unjust is if they are no longer just (and, if those who are unjust repent, they will be saved)... or if they either defected to wickedness themselves, or if they turned a blind eye to the wickedness around them.  We are responsible for wickedness in our own house, our own family, our own neighborhood, community, city, and nation.  If we can just ignore it, God will ignore us and allow the Law of the Harvest ("you reap what you sow") to find us.  If we forget His Law, He said He would forget our children.  Turning from God's Ways is not merely suicide, but it is genocidal / national suicide.

The entire Law is founded upon this: Love the Lord with all thy heart, soul, and mind, and the second is like unto it; love thy neighbor (kinsmen) as thyself.  Why?  How?  The second is like unto it because we were created in God’s Image—to murder, rape, rob a kinsmen is to strike against God Himself.  If we truly love God (love is shown by actions), we will not violate His Law.  If we truly love our neighbors (kinsmen), we will not sin against them because we would not want them to sin against us.  To turn a blind eye to wickedness and evil in the community is to approve of the rape and murder and abuse of our kinsmen; it is to approve of paganism, false gods, immoral practices, violations of the Sabbaths, etc.

If the just simply turn a blind eye, then the salt is no longer good for anything.  Salt was not a flavoring in ancient times, but a preservative; salt preserved food because it kills bacteria.  Light is a disinfectant, because it kills bacteria (the ozone produced by the ultraviolet rays of the sun).  Vermin scatter and hide from the light.  Christ said we were the "salt of the earth" and the "light of the world" (being reflectors and bearers of His Light), when we are functioning in our God-ordained roles.*  Christ said of the true Church: "the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it" (Matthew 16:18).  This puts Hell on the defensive.  Armies do not carry their gates into battle with them; their gates do not prevail when they are on the defensive, under siege, being attacked.  Who is winning the moral and religious war in Christendom today?  If Hell is winning, then the church is not the true church (or it is asleep and needs to wake up, repent, and get in the battle).

[* But, we are told that it is not right to hide a light under a bushel (even as it was not right for the one servant to bury his talent in the ground) and we are told that if the salt has lost its saltiness, that which makes it salt, that which gives it its edge to kill bacteria; if it has lost its purity and been contaminated by everything around it—it is good for nothing and will itself be cast out to be trodden under foot.   For a deeper study concerning the parallels between the Christian and salt, see my, The Christian-Israelite & Salt...]

 

Lot tried to act as a moral influence in the wicked city to which he foolishly decided to relocate.  He sat at the gates as one of the elders (due to his initial wealth, I imagine, they accepted him).  They then resented him and turned against him.  When there were not enough righteous people worth saving, God called Lot and His family out and destroyed it.  That is what God is waiting for today, in addition to our repentance (which most Christians think they have no need for), we need to bring forth fruit meet for repentance.  If the righteous do not flee the wicked cities, then the just will die with the unjust.  God commanded, "come out from among them and be ye separate."  Why then are God’s people not separate?  Why then will they be astonished when Judgment lands on them; when they have clearly chosen to side with the world rather than obey God...?  Because we did not  not restrain the wicked when we had the ability to, certain parts of civilization (which are no longer truly civilization) need to be abandoned so that God’s Judgment can fall.  Sinful Christians who do not repent and do not come out, not only delay the destruction of the wicked, but they risk destruction themselves.  May God’s people Wake Up! and truly repent and bring forth fruit meet for repentance—now!

 

Those who agree with these sentiments, please:

1. Pray that God leads us ALL into the knowledge of His Truth and Word so that we will know what He requires;

2. Pray that God pours out His Holy Spirit upon ALL of us His people, to put it within us to desire to do what is right and enable us by His Grace to actually do it; and

3. Pray for me and this ministry and consider supporting this ministry; for I cannot do all I do without your prayers and support.  We reap what we sow.  God instructed His people to support His true priesthood to lead them in the ways of God—and to lead them back to God.

4. Pray imprecatory prayers upon the wicked that God destroy them from off the face of the earth; obey God and HATE evil; you cannot hate evil without loving righteousness (and doing it by His Grace).

Draw nigh unto God and He will draw nigh unto thee.  We better draw nigh unto God before our civilization is extinguished and we "go to meet our Maker" instead of our Maker coming to deliver us from the evil that is overtaking the world because of our negligence, compromise, apathy, and tolerance.  Why should God deliver us from that which we are willing to tolerate...?
