THE PALACE OF STRANGERS
Bertrand L. Comparet
Before 1945 our country prospered greatly, we had the
highest standard of living ever known and a steadily growing production of
wealth for distribution. Even in the depression days, our people on relief lived
better than three quarters of the world had ever lived. We determined our own
foreign policy and were respected for our strength.
In 1945 occurred our greatest disaster; we allowed secret
communists and their dupes to get us to join the United Nations. We agreed that
we should have only one vote therein, but Russia should have three votes besides
casting other votes in the names of her satellite slave states. We agreed that
while the civilian offices should rotate among the different nations, a
communist Russian should always have command of the United Nation's military
department. We surrendered to this communist conceived monster, the power to
determine our own destiny. We have only one vote out of far more than one
It is time to ask ourselves these questions.
(1) What has
membership in this organization done for us and to us?
(2) What does
Yahweh say of this?
(3) Can we
reconcile this with our duty as Christians?
The United Nations has made us pay an appalling toll in
expense, dishonor and death. It has not prevented war, and multiple wars have
raged in many places during most of its history. It has no substantial military
force but our own. We pay not only our own costs, but also a large part of the
military expenses of most other nations. We even paid about two billion dollars
for the Red army of Yugoslavia. We paid nearly all the cost of the Korean War,
which was more costly year for year than World War II. We also paid the entire
cost of the tragically insufficient defense of Indo China.
Though we are only one out of far more than one hundred
members, we pay far over one-third of the United Nation's expenses. Finally we
are learning that we can't buy friends, like you buy carrots or bananas, we
don't have one reliable ally among them. When we organized the Southeast Asia
Treaty Organization, we weren't allowed to include Nationalist China, South
Korea or Japan. Not because the Red Chinese objected, but because England and
France wouldn't let us! To support this miserable mess, we pay more in taxes
than all the rest of the world combined, including even the communist block. For
what purposes do we saddle this ruinous burden upon our people?
Yes! We no longer chart our own independent course, with due regard to
our national honor and interests. We always sacrifice both upon the altar of a
false democracy of our enemies. We come, bowing humbly, to ask of the Congo,
India, Ghana, Indonesia, Poland and Russia, What will you permit us to do, what
do you command us to do. We pledge ourselves in advance, to abide by their
orders, however detrimental to our rights and honor it may be. We have often
declared we will never use our veto power on anything. The result, the United
Nations, under its communist military director, compelled us to lose the Korean
War, though we had the power to win it, for the purpose of making us lose face
Venezuelans spit on our Vice President, while their
police enjoyed his humiliation. Castro steals our citizen's property, makes an
open alliance with Red China and Russia, then Castro sets up rocket bases for
them threatening our east coast. Castro also set up supply bases for Russian
submarines for the time when they will block our Panama Canal. What do we do
about this? We take it lying down, because the United Nations will not give us permission
to defend ourselves, how they love to watch our humiliation!
Yes! In the Korean War, the other members of the United Nations supplied only
token forces. Outside of the Koreans themselves we lost 98.5% of the casualties
on our side. Red China still holds 900 of our men prisoners. In this war officially
run as a United Nations operation, we were required to make frequent reports
to the Red Russian head of its military department. We had to show the strength
of our forces, where they were and our own plans and strategy. Do you wonder
that the Reds usually knew where to hit our weak spots?
If we had studied our Bible before getting into this
death trap, we would have seen Yahweh's warning to stay out of it in the
first place. Yahweh always warned us to stay out of leagues with pagan
nations. "So shall we be separated, I and thy people from all the
people who are upon the face of the earth."
Exodus 33:16 "Your safety lies in ceasing to make
leagues, your strength is quiet faith."
Isaiah 30:15 " Shouldest thou help the ungodly and
love them that hate Yahweh? Therefore is wrath come upon thee from before
Yahweh." Moffatt translation.
II Chronicles 19:2 "Be ye not unequally yoked
together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with
unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness; And what concord
hath Yahshua with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? Wherefore, come out from among them and be ye separate, saith Yahweh, and
touch not the unclean thing and I will receive you and will be a Father unto you
and ye shall be My sons and My daughters, saith Yahweh the Almighty."
II Corinthians 6:14-15,17, 2,600 years ago, through the
prophet Isaiah, Yahweh proclaimed the futility of the United Nations. He warned
us not to enter into this confederacy of nations saying in Isaiah 8:9-14,
"Associate yourselves, O ye people and ye shall be broken in pieces; and
give ear, all ye of far countries: gird yourselves, and ye shall be broken in
pieces. Take counsel together, and it shall come to naught; speak the word, and
it shall not stand: for Yahweh is with us. For Yahweh spake thus to me with a
strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people
saying, Say ye not a confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, a
confederacy, neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid. Sanctify Yahweh himself;
and let Him be your fear and let Him be your dread. And he shall be for a
Isn't this a perfect picture of the United Nations, so
well defined as organized futility? "Take counsel together and it shall
come to naught: speak the word and it shall not stand." That is exactly
what has happened.
What will be the final end of this nest of alien spies in
our land? If we had any American self-respect left, we would expel it.
Unfortunately, we have lost our self-respect. So, the Bible prophecy's
destruction of the United Nations at Yahweh's hands, it identifies the United
Nations headquarters as the palace of strangers. Isaiah 25:1-5
reads, "O Yahweh, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise Thy
name: for Thou hast done wonderful things; Thy counsels of old are faithfulness
and truth. For Thou hast made a city of a heap of a defensed city a ruin: a palace
of strangers to be no city; it shall never be rebuilt. Therefore
shall the strong people glorify Thee a refuge from the storm, a shadow from
the heat when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the
wall. Thou shalt bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry
place. Even the heat with the shadow of a cloud."
Note carefully those words. To us, Yahweh will be
a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm
against the wall, our defense against the atom bombs. To the palace of
strangers Yahweh says, "Thou shalt bring down the noise of strangers,
as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud.
The shadow of a cloud gives coolness, except in one instance. When it is the
mushroom cloud of an atomic or hydrogen bomb, then it is the heat with the
shadow of a cloud.
