From the very beginning, various dangers have threatened
the civilizations man has built, the peril was always potentially there, but
when would it eventually strike? There would be deceptively peaceful periods,
lengthening out from weeks into years. The anticipated danger seemed to come no
closer until people would doubt that danger really existed. People are always
far too ready to close their minds to anything which they don't want to believe,
anything which upsets their peace of mind.
As the years of peace are lengthened out, fewer and fewer
people would admit the possibility of another war, preparedness would slacken.
The nations would become less and less able to meet the peril when it actually
occurred. Even those who could see the danger still had to give their major
attention to the day-by-day affairs of life. They had to appoint watchmen to
maintain vigilance for the whole community, and give warning upon the approach
of imminent danger.
The watchman's task has always been a thankless one.
There are treacherous fifth column elements, which are really working for the
defeat of the nation, at the hands of its enemies. These subversive elements
readily gain and hold the public's ear, because they soothingly tell the people
what they want to hear. Go back to sleep, no danger can come, and there is
nothing you can do.
The honest and patriotic citizen, who sees and warns of
the impending danger, is hated because he disturbs the public's indolence with
his warnings. First they say that he is just foolishly imagining dangers, which
don't exist. When this doesn't silence him, then they say that he desires the
calamities, which he is warning his people to avoid. Meanwhile, danger
approaches faster and faster because of the public indifference and failure to
take the necessary precautions. When it does strike, it is far more terrible
than it would have been if the warnings had been heeded. The price of
indifference is always paid in the blood of your sons, who need not have died if
you had done your part.
Like all-important developments in the life of nations,
this one was well known to Yahweh and it gets frequent attention in the Bible.
Yahweh chooses certain men to be His watchmen, and inspires them to stick
to their unpopular task. It is a great responsibility and if well done, a great
honor. The watchman's responsibility is to speak the truth, come what may. From
then on, the responsibility is that of the people who have been warned.
Yahweh told the prophet in Ezekiel 3:17, "Son
of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the
word of My mouth and give the warning from Me." Ezekiel 33:2-6
continues, "When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land
take a man of their coasts and set him for their watchman: if, when he seeth the
sword come upon the land, he bloweth the trumpet and warn the people: then
whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet and taketh not warning, if the sword
come and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. But if the
watchman see the sword come and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not
warned: if the sword come and take any person from among them, he is taken away
in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's
The real essentials of life have not changes in all of
history; the qualities and actions, which are really good, are exactly the same
today as they were in Moses' time. What evil is there that is really new? When a
merchant cheats you by selling shoddy merchandise, is it any different because
today you pay for it with dollars instead of shekels? If you don't leap for your
life quickly enough, is it any consolation that you are run over by an
automobile, instead of a chariot? Today, there are still those in high places of
power who will betray the most sacred principles for thirty pieces of silver. As
in ancient times, it is still important to know who watches the watchman.
Who are our watchmen? First we think of those to whom we
have entrusted high public office. Whatever their duties may include, that of
watching and giving warning is the primary duty, however they do not make up all
the responsible watchmen. From the beginning Yahweh has recognized that
politicians may fail to perform their duties. Someone must be watchman over all
dangers, from within as well as from without, the record of this is found in the
Bible. Since these warnings come from Yahweh, His watchmen are found in the
What are the dangers against which our watchmen should
warn us? Every one which threatens our national security, whether from within
the nation or without the nation. Have you been told that Yahweh is only
interested in saving souls, then you have been grossly misinformed. Over 5/6ths
of the Bible deals with the race and nation as such, and less than
1/6th with the individual. What good did Lot's own morality do him
while he lived in the city of Sodom, wasn't he in the midst of evil at all
times, didn't it constantly threaten his very existence? Yahweh is vitally
interested in racial and national integrity, as well as that of the individual.
Many times in history, honest and moral people had to go through the awful
calamities of the punishment, which came upon a corrupt nation in which they
If our watchmen are not vigilant against crime, and we
allow this to go on, then we must live under the conditions found in certain
large cities, which have scandalized the nation. If our watchmen are not
vigilant against the danger of foreign war, then our sons will die upon the
battlefield in a needless sacrifice. This won't be for the honor and safety of
the nation, but paying the price of your own indifference to a situation, which
you could have avoided if you had acted in time. If your watchmen are not
vigilant against the great and growing danger of communist revolution here at
home, then those of you who survive can hope for nothing better than the slavery
now imposed on many nations.
What has this to do with religion?
Everything! Surely I need not remind anyone that Yahweh wants you
to live under conditions of generally good morals. Your sons and your daughters
will pattern their own lives upon what they see about them. Yahweh certainly
wants you to have peace, but peace comes only from Yahweh, not from compromises
with evil arranged between Goldberg and Brezhnev.
The Bible gives the only rule in Psalm 119:165.
"Great peace have they which love Thy law: and nothing shall offend
them." Isaiah 32:17 records, "And the work of righteousness
shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance
forever." Isaiah 48:18 continues, "O that thou hadst hearkened
to My commandments! Then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as
the waves of the sea."
Yahweh wants us to have liberty. As part of one of the
most important and impressive ceremonies of the Bible, Yahweh commanded in Leviticus
25:10, "Proclaim liberty throughout all the land, unto all the
inhabitants thereof." Yahshua opened His ministry with the quotation of Isaiah
61:1, "The spirit of Yahweh is upon Me: because Yahweh hath anointed Me
to preach good tidings unto the meek; He hath sent Me to bind up the broken
hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to
them that are bound." In Romans 8:21 we are promised, "The
glorious liberty of the children of [email protected]
These are great prizes to be won but, they don't come
automatically to the lazy, the indifferent or to the cowards. All of them have
been lost, repeatedly and terribly, by public neglect. It is still true that the
watchmen must be alert against danger, but someone must vigilantly watch the
watchmen. Most of our politicians have failed miserably as watchmen, but thank
Yahweh for the few loyal and honest ones. The drift into the very communism,
which we are preparing to fight, continues at a rapid pace. We are being
betrayed into communism by degrees, by the very men we have trusted with our
safety. In our country they have been able to sell the people on this by calling
it humanitarianism instead of communism.
Those elected to high public office are the watchmen
selected by the people. When our cities were smaller and there were fewer forms
of entertainment available, a candidate only needed leather lungs, great
endurance, and a little money for travel expenses. With these few assets, he
could reach most of the voters, for people came out to public meetings to hear
Today this situation no longer exists, except for purely
local office in the smallest towns. For the larger towns, the only way to show
the voters your ability, your record and your principles, is through the
commercial media of public communications, newspapers, radio and television. The
cost of these services on the scale necessary for a statewide or nation wide
campaign is fantastic to a degree that the public cannot realize. It can be met
only by powerful and wealthy organizations. When these organizations spend that
much money, they usually think that they have bought the candidate and his
office. They expect to assume the power to dictate the actions of the government
and to make themselves masters of the nation. They force upon the government
policies for their own benefit but ruinous to all others.
The men who will not sell out to them get no such support
from others. Take yourself for example, how often have you contributed even
$10.00 to the campaign fund for a good man? Without adequate backing, how many
good men can be elected? Look over the list of the high public officers in the
nation. How many of them got there under their own steam, as compared to those
who were put in office as the passive tool of some powerful organization? The
general level of our state and national officers is so low, is not because there
were no good candidates available, it is because you never heard of them.
The first to use this power of organization and money
were those interested in corruption. They wanted jobs on the public payroll for
the small fry, an occasional chance to embezzle some public funds, and mostly
the power to channel the multi million-dollar public contracts into their own
hands. They were merely dishonest; they only wanted to steal from the nation,
not to destroy it. Their proven success with this method of gaining power has
attracted a far more sinister group. This group wishes not merely to steal some
money from the nation, but to steal the entire nation itself.
Wherever the Russian armies have entered, this group who
are an alien minority in all lands has paved the way for them. They are willing
collaborators, who have ever since been kept in power as puppet governments, by
the force of Russian bayonets. When these aliens can determine who gets public
office, then the watchmen are only the agents of the enemy.
Naturally, this situation didn't escape the notice of
Yahweh. It is not new; it is just a constantly recurring phase of the age-old
warfare of the satanic forces against the kingdom of Yahweh. As a counter
measure, Yahweh commissioned His own watchmen, to watch the others. Yahweh's
watchmen should be found among His ministers. For example, in the Old Testament
in Ezekiel 3:17 the prophet was told, "Son of man, I have made thee
a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at My mouth, and
give them warning from Me".
We have learned to expect corruption in politics. If the
clergy are alert to warn the nation, the worst perils can still be avoided.
However, when the clergy fail in their duty, as far too many thousands of them
are failing today, the situation becomes desperate, this is also not new. We had
better study its terrible consequences in the past, and take warning.
In the prophesies of the Bible, Yahweh warned us of the
very dangers we face today. He knew and He warned us, that the real danger would
be internal, not from the outside. Psalm 74:4 tells us, "Thine
enemies roar in the midst of Thy congregations". The enemies of our God and
Savior roar out their hatred of Him from positions they have secured even in our
churches. They now even deny the virgin birth of Christ and the atonement made
on the cross. They constantly attack the foundations of our American way of life
from positions within our government. Yahshua
made the warning more pointed, that the danger would be from within. In Mark
3:27 He said, "No man can enter into a strong man's house and spoil his
goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his
house." Since the plunderer cannot enter until after the strong man has
been bound, this must be an inside job. Therefore Yahshua also said in Matthew
10:36, "A man's foes shall be they of his own
All who are well informed know that the danger from
communist subversion at work in all branches of our government is real and
terribly great. Nikita Kruschev explained it himself in one of his speeches in
Russia. "We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism to
communism. But, we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small
doses of socialism, until they suddenly awaken to find they have
We see this process going on under high pressure every
day. Agencies of our government connived very effectively to assist in the
overthrow of the Cuban government of Batista, because he was anti communist.
This wasn't because he was a dictator, for they fawn at the feet of the brutal
murderer Tito of Yugoslavia, because he is a Red dictator.
You notice with what exceeding thoroughness they steered
the invasion of the anti Castro forces into tragic disaster. The Red beachhead
in our own hemisphere, which our own government deliberately helped to
establish, is still growing stronger each day. Our officials spout hypocritical
platitudes of weak disapproval, but no effective actions against Cuba. Do you
think they would have behaved like this if Nazi Germany or Fascist Italy had
established a beachhead? Truly, "A man's foes shall be they of his own
household." Our danger is not from fall out, but from sell out.
At home, they openly say that the danger to this nation
is not from Red revolutionists, but from super patriots, men who want to
keep our American way of life. Those in high places, who are not openly helping
the drift into communism, are giving faint praise to the middle of the road
doctrines. Yes, the middle of the road to communism.
By their definitions a middle of the roadman is one who
says, "Communism is all right, but let's adopt it only one step at a
time." A right-winger is a man who says, "Maybe we'd better not go
completely Red." An extreme right-winger or Fascist is one who wants to
keep our American way of life without change.
Yahweh foretold all of this, for in Isaiah 56:10-11
He said, "His watchmen are blinded: they are all ignorant, they are all
dumb dogs; they cannot bark: sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. Yea, they
are greedy dogs, which never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot
understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain." This
willful blindness and ignorance is inexcusable in those who have eagerly sought
the responsibility of the watchman's job. The real explanation is, "They
are greedy dogs, which can never have enough; they all look to their own way,
every one for his gain." By serving the enemies of our Christian
civilization, they have been raised to high positions of power, glory and
The danger is very great. Not foreign invasion, but
internal subversion has taken over many nations. Egypt, Iraq, Indonesia, Ghana,
Guinea, Cuba and British Guiana, all these have fallen into the hands of
Russia's accomplices before even a Russian soldier set a foot in their country.
Now that they are openly our enemies and vote with Russia consistently in the
United Nations, our own high officers still bleed us white to strengthen our
enemies. Truly, our watchmen need watching.
As always, the great majority of our political leaders
have not only failed to give us warning of this conspiracy, they have eagerly
participated in it for the rewards it offered in behind the scenes support in
election years. Yahweh foresaw this breach of trust. He knew that someone should
watch the watchmen. This duty falls upon those who are honored by being called
to be His spokesmen, when these fail in their duty, it is doubly tragic.
There is no doubt many church seminaries have been
infiltrated by socialists and secret communists, who have thoroughly brainwashed
the young clergymen they have taught. You, who listen to these lessons, know
that the Bible clearly commands segregation. However, most of the clergymen
preach integration, in direct violation of Yahweh's laws.
You know that the Bible identifies the United Nations as
a satanic organization, it is an accursed palace of strangers, which
Yahweh will destroy in order to end its evils. In spite of this, most clergymen
preach that the United Nations is mankind's only hope; apparently they never
heard of Yahshua as mankind's only real hope!
You know that in the Bible, Yahweh forbids us to ally
ourselves with the God hating pagan nations. Yahweh commands us to come out from
among them, and be ye separate. Most of the clergymen preach that we must give
up all of our own distinctive character, given to us by Yahweh, and ruin our
people in order to enrich pagan nations. Then we are to teach them that paganism
can bring them every good that the one true God has given to us. What satanic
evil is there left that these brainwashed clergymen have not praised and
supported? Our people, who rely upon the clergy to tell them God's truth, are
misled. Nevertheless, even when you are honestly mistaken, misled by those you
trust, violation of Yahweh's laws will always bring its terrible consequences.
Jeremiah 6:10-15 states, "To whom shall I
speak and give warning, that they may hear? Behold, their ear is uncircumcised,
and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of Yahweh is unto them a reproach;
they have no delight in it. For from the least of them even unto the greatest of
them, every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of My people but
slightly, saying Peace! Peace! When there is no peace. Were they ashamed when
they had committed abomination? Nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could
they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I
visit them they shall be cast down, saith Yahweh."
This treachery must have its awful consequences. Jeremiah
5:31 records, "The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule
by their ears; and My people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the
end thereof?" When the United Nations leads us into disasters from
which no human power can save us, will it then do us any good to whine,
"But, I didn't know any better! I thought that God was just an old fuddy
duddy. I'd better get wise like Goldberg, Lodge, Rockefeller and the rest of the
liberals." When the disasters come, then we will realize the truth of Jeremiah
8:9. "The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: Lo, they
have rejected the word of Yahweh; and what wisdom is in them?"
The indictment against the false clergy is
terrible. Ezekiel 13:2-10 relates it. "Son of man, prophesy against
the prophets of Israel that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word
of Yahweh; thus saith Yahweh: Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their
own spirit, and have seen nothing! O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in
the deserts. Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the wall for the
house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of Yahweh. They have seen
vanity and lying divination, saying Yahweh saith: and Yahweh hath not sent them:
and they made others to hope that they would confirm the word. Therefore, thus
saith Yahweh: Because ye have spoken vanity and seen lies, therefore behold, I
am against you, saith Yahweh. And Mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see
vanity and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of My people,
neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither
shall they enter into the land of Israel: and ye shall know that I am Yahweh thy
God. Because, even because they have deceived My people, saying peace and there
was no peace!"
The penalty that Yahweh has set for the false
clergymen, who mislead His people in these desperate days, will be swift and
terrible when He returns to set things straight. What of the nation, which was
deceived by them? There have been true watchmen who gave warning, but how many
would believe them? No, the people preferred to believe the soothing lies of
peace, even when they can see that there is no peace.
Remember what Yahweh said to Jeremiah! If the watchman
blew the trumpet, but a man would not take warning, then the sword would take
him away in his iniquity. In Jeremiah 6:17,19 Yahweh warns, "Also I
set watchmen over you saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they
said, We will not hearken! Hear O earth: behold, I will bring calamity upon this
people, even the fruit of their thoughts: because they have not hearkened unto
My words, nor to My law, but rejected it."
The final terrible war, of which the few true watchmen
have been warning us, is rapidly approaching. The people have been deceived into
ignoring it. This only brings it upon us more quickly and certainly. The people
have preferred to believe a pleasant lie, rather than the stern truth.
Therefore, for those who were deceived, the disaster will truly be the fruit of
their thoughts. People have ignored the true watchmen, and followed deceivers
into violations of Yahweh's laws. To them Hosea 10:13 says, "Ye have
plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity: ye have eaten the fruit of
You who have followed these lessons, and have heeded the
warnings you know what is coming. You have turned to Yahweh for His protection.
You will have Yahweh's protection. Read Psalm chapter 91. The watchman's
task is a bitter and thankless one, as a rule. When the elect hear and give
heed, then it is worth the trouble.
