A few years ago, the then president of The National
Council of Churches warned about what he called the danger that the great
religious awakening, which is taking place in our country, might become
fanatical and be carried into our political and business life! Perhaps this is a
fair example of the leadership of most of our churches. This is no leadership at
all, because the leaders have no faith in the religion to which they give empty
For lack of faith in the Bible, they don't make it a
force in our national life. For lack of faith, they pay no attention to what II
Peter 1:19 calls, "A more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well
that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place". To these
blind leaders of the blind, all is darkness. They can't lead because they don't
know where to go. They turn their backs on Yahweh, and tell us to become more
liberal. They want us to learn to get along with Russia and to abandon our
opposition to Red China!
Never were the words of prophecy, and the laws of Yahweh
more needed than today, with all civilization crumbling in the end of the age.
Nearly half of the population of the earth has been under communist Jewish
occupation. More Christians have been persecuted and murdered under communism,
than ever before in history. These Christians were treated to unimaginable
torture. Even the Roman Empire at its greatest never treated Christians,
murdering and torturing them, the way these communist Jews have done. This evil
race, which originated communism, is also plotting the same hideous fate for
Christians in all the free countries. At such a time, what is the proper
function of the Christian church and of all Christian ministers? Is it to waste
all their power in the fatuous effort to save some gin soaked, skid row bum,
isn't their function to try to save Christian civilization? Yahweh has clearly
marked out their proper function as that of watchmen, they are to give
warning of the approaching disaster.
Yahweh very clearly explained this to the prophet
Ezekiel, this explanation is recorded in Ezekiel 33:2-6. "When I
bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their
coasts and set him for a watchman: if, when he seeth the sword come upon the
land, he blows the trumpet and warns 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 sees the
sword come, and blows not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the
sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away for his
iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."
As far back as history goes, periods of apostasy of the
churches have always led to judgments. Judgments that were caused by that very
apostasy, Yahweh is not to be mocked. The only source of our real strength, to
resist invasion from without or corruption and revolution from within, is our
character. This is entirely dependent upon our knowledge of Yahweh and His laws.
Without this knowledge, it doesn't matter what terrible new weapons we may have
invented. We will be like the nations of Southeast Asia, completely lacking in
the strength of character to defend ourselves. In our own case, what nations
will come to defend us then? No really great civilization of history really
was overthrown by forces from outside. When these great nations fell, they had
already become so rotten within that it was an easy pushover for the invading
armies. This is the way Assyria, Babylon, Egypt, Greece and Rome fell, are we to
be next on this list?
Today I condemn our major churches for two unpardonable
sins. First, failure to speak the truth, which is in the Bible. Second, speaking
falsely in the name of doctrine. Yahweh has convicted them on both charges, as
we can read in the Bible. Many of you know, by terrible experience, the price
paid by those who dare to speak the truth on what are called controversial
matters. There is the loss of former friends, who now avoid you, calling you a
fanatic or even a crackpot. There are slanderous rumors, spread at first by
those who do know better. Then those who have been deceived repeat these rumors
and who will not investigate to see for themselves, whether the smear they
spread is true or not.
Their churches have expelled patriots, because those
churches are too corrupted to speak the truth, or even allow truth to be spoken
to their members. Finally the loss of a business, or loss of your job, as a
result of the anti Christian pressure brought upon those who deal with you. The
corrupted clergy lack the courage to face these matters. Far too many of the
clergy entered the ministry as a refuge from a competitive world they feared to
face. There is no human activity, which has such great need of a real man's man.
Yet today, only a pitifully few dare to tell the truth, come what may.
Twenty-six hundred years ago Yahweh spoke through the
prophet Isaiah, it is recorded in Isaiah 56:10-11. "His watchmen are
blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark;
sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. Yes, they are greedy dogs, which
can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they
all look to their own way, everyone for their own gain." Note
these two condemnations. First they are ignorant, and second, everyone for his
own gain. There is no excuse for his ignorance; every clergyman has assumed the
duty to know and to speak the word of Yahweh. The people rely upon them for
this, for where else can the people turn for instruction in such things?
The second condemnation is for false teaching for the
greater money profit to be had thereby that is truly unpardonable. However, they
do know where the money is to be made. Go into the bigger churches, where the
minister is paid very well for his services, and show me just one of them where
the unfortunate congregation hears anything but smooth syrupy sermons! They may
sermonize in great indignation against the man who drinks an occasional glass of
beer, when do they raise their voices against the Jewish influence, which has
driven Yahweh out of our schools? They may speak with thunderous condemnation of
the man who is losing his soul by smoking a cigarette, when do they dare name
the powerful race who has grown wealthy selling those cigarettes?
When do they dare expose the anti Christian money, which
controls both of our major political parties, and steers both of them straight
down the road to communism and the end of our civilization? These clergymen
bemoan the bad morals of our youth, but when have they ever dared to mention the
race that makes the salacious movies, which have led our youth into their
present demoralized condition. Ah no, they never mention such things, because
they know the penalty of offending Yahweh's enemies. They have less fear of
offending Yahweh. How bold they are to denounce anyone who does tell the truth
about these evils!
Yahweh knew it and prophesied about it many years ago, in
Micah 3:5-7 He said this. "As for the prophets, the Eternal says,
who lead My folk astray, and who cry, All's well! If they get food to eat, and
open war on any who deny them: It shall be night for you, and devoid of vision,
so dark that you cannot divine; the sun shall set upon the prophets, daylight
shall darken over them, till seers are shamed and the diviners blush, in the
morning, because no answer comes from Yahweh." (Moffatt).
Isn't this true today, into which church can you go today
and expect to really hear the word of Yahweh? Look in the church page of your
Saturday newspapers, and read all the subjects listed for Sunday's sermons, what
do you find? Book reviews, amateur psychiatry on how to relieve the strain of
the day's tensions. There will be sermons on why we should abandon our
principles in order to get along with the forces of evil without conflict, both
at home and abroad. Not long ago, in one of the largest churches in San Diego,
California, the announced sermon was "The Horse That played Baseball".
I have looked through the Bible in vain to find which prophet wrote on that
I am amazed at the number of prophets who spoke Yahweh's
condemnation of the ministers who have refused to teach His word, because it
always meets the opposition of the wicked. Instead these ministers have taught
false doctrine because it is always popular and profitable. This condemnation is
written throughout the Bible, both in the Old and New Testaments, as we shall
see. Few matters if any, have received so much mention, because this is the true
root of all-evil. If the churches never failed to teach Yahweh's truth, then
other evils would never get a foothold. Therefore, the Bible prophesies the
eternal doom of these false shepherds, who lead Yahweh's flock astray.
Another thing worth noting is this. Often the Bible's
condemnation is directed toward those who mislead the people into pacifism
in the face of evil attempts to conquer the world, the very situation we face
today. Today the ministers tell us that we must neglect our defenses, think only
of peace and try to reason with the monsters that rule under the name of
communism. We are told to settle everything by treaties; with those whose openly
stated policy is that they never make a treaty in good faith. They only sign
treaties as a means to deceive their intended victims, and their record is they
never keep any treaty when they don't want to live up to the terms of it.
There cannot be any other result of this but the most
terrible disaster for our nation. In Jeremiah 6:13-15 Yahweh has summed
it up. "From the least of them even unto the greatest of them, every one is
given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest, 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."
Suppose all of the churches had spoken the word of
Yahweh. What if they had warned this nation in 1945 to keep out of the United
Nations, that palace of strangers cursed by Yahweh. Suppose that they had read
to their congregations what the Bible, both Old and New Testaments say against
it. If they had reminded our senate, and had all of their congregations join in
reminding the senate, that in II Corinthians 6:14-18 Yahweh warns us,
"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 Christ 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 to you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, saith Yahweh
If these ministers had pointed out that our own nation,
which is seeking after righteousness, could have no fellowship with the Soviet
Union, the most vile conspiracy against all good in human history. If they had
done this could Harry Truman, Alger Hiss and Harry Dexter White have prevailed
against the united wrath of the two-thirds of our population, which are
Suppose these ministers had read to their congregations
the warning given 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 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
whom this people say, a confederacy! Neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid.
Sanctify Yahweh and let Him be your dread. And He shall be for a
sanctuary." If these ministers had done this, we would not now be caught in
this death trap, where just the Negro cannibals alone out vote us 25 to 1. They
out vote all the civilized nations of the world, because of this; the Afro/Asian
bloc is rapidly becoming our master.
Let's go back to these unfaithful shepherd's still
earlier failure to speak the word of Yahweh. Suppose that in the 1920's and
early 1940's, the so-called Christian ministers had told all their congregations
the truth about what is in the Bible. What if they had warned people not to join
us with the wicked and help the ungodly? If these ministers had done this, and
aroused the nation, then do you think that Franklin Roosevelt and his communist
fellow travelers could have built Russia up into the monster, which today
threatens all civilization with destruction? No indeed, our people would never
have allowed it if they had known the truth.
These clergymen were, as the Bible says, covetous, every
one for his own gain, and dealt falsely with the word of Yahweh. For the sake of
the support of the wealthy anti Christians, these clergymen went eagerly along
with President Roosevelt, helping to herd the people down the trail to communist
slavery and death. They told the people what great humanitarian policies
Roosevelt, Harry Hopkins and Alger Hiss had. They told their congregations the
United Nations was the world's only hope for peace and safety.
Had they never heard of Yahshua, as our one true hope for
peace? No, they went along with the conspiracy. Yahweh knew it, and told us of
it 25 centuries ago in Ezekiel 22:25-26. "There is a conspiracy
of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey,
they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and the precious things; they
have made many widows in the midst thereof. Her priests have violated My law
and have profaned My holy things: They have put no difference between the
holy and profane, neither have they showed the difference between the unclean
This is true, those who joined in this conspiracy of the
clergy were prosperous, and they have taken the treasure and the precious
things. As Ezekiel said, they put no difference between the holy and the
profane, between Christianity and the evil schemes of the anti Christians, to
bring communism to full power. As a result, these clergy conditioned the minds
of the people to follow traitorous leaders into the situation, which developed
into World War II and the Korean War. As the Bible says, "They have made
her many widows in the midst thereof". Scores of thousands of families
of our people have lost a father, son or brother in those wars. These wars would
not have occurred if the churches had taught our people the word of Yahweh, and
given them the prophetic warnings of these things before they happened. As
Yahweh said in Ezekiel 22:25-26 and Zephaniah 3:4, "The
priests have violated My law, and have profaned My holy things and they have
polluted the sanctuary".
Yahweh's condemnation of them on these grounds is well
justified; let's look at the record. You have seen many instances of Jewish
rabbis invited to speak in the pulpits of Christian churches, despite all the
vile slanders about Yahshua in the Talmud, on which Judaism is based. Likewise I
have known of instances where supposedly Christian churches, have allowed Jewish
synagogues to use the Christian church auditorium as a meeting place. How will
these supposedly Christian ministers, ever answer to Yahshua for doing this? The
Bible tells us Yahshua's own words, recorded in Matthew 7:22-23.
"Many will say to Me in that day, Master, Master have we not prophesied in
Thy name, and in Thy name cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful
works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye
that work iniquity."
Yahweh again condemns them in Ezekiel 22:25-26
because neither have they shown a difference between the unclean and the clean.
This is very true. In their churches, they have preached integration and
mongrelization, the unpardonable sin for which Sodom and Gomorrah were
destroyed. Did you know this was the cause of the judgment on these cities? They
were immoral, but so were Babylon, Assyria, Greece and Rome, no such judgment
fell on them. Jude 1:7 tells us that Sodom and Gomorrah, because of their
going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the
vengeance of eternal fire". Yet this is exactly what many preachers are
urging in their pulpits today, integration and mongrelization of the white and
Truly, by their fruits ye shall know them! Several of the
major churches, in their national conferences, have officially decided that
their ministers do not have to profess a belief in the divinity or virgin birth
of Yahshua. They are now promoting the equality of all religions, and teaching
universal brotherhood with the children of Satan, the Jews. By this they are
admitting who their own father is. This is happening in churches that claim to
be Christian! Psalm 74:2-4 is very clear on this. "Remember thy
congregation, which Thou hast purchased of old; the rod of Thine inheritance,
which Thou hast redeemed; * * even all that the enemy hath done wickedly in
the sanctuary. Thine enemies roar in the midst of Thy congregations!"
These churches and ministers lead Yahweh's people astray
by their apostasy. They get the help of the Jews, those whom Yahshua identified
as Satan's children in John 8:31-44. They make it profitable and easy for
themselves. The terrible truth is that our people are all too easily led astray
it is really quite popular. We, who tell our people the truth, who give them
warning of the terrible judgments, which they have earned, are usually feared
and hated. We are called hate mongers in the official communist party line,
which has been taken up by so many.
This too was prophesied by Yahweh in Isaiah 30:9-10.
"This is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear
the law of Yahweh: which say to the seers, See not! and to the prophets,
Prophesy not unto the right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy
deceits." This turning our backs on Yahweh must have its disastrous
consequences, as we are warned in Jeremiah 5:31. "The prophets
prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and My people love
to have it so! And what will be the end thereof?"
Each day's newspapers carry to us the news we are
drifting nearer and nearer to the end thereof. This is when we will have to face
the consequences of these false teachings, which have corrupted most of our
churches. Is it any wonder that our golf courses are better attended on Sunday
mornings than the churches? If there were only the true spiritual leadership in
the churches, people would not be turned away hungry of soul. Yahweh foresaw
this, for Jeremiah 23:2 tells it very clearly. "Therefore, thus
saith Yahweh, the God of Israel against the pastors that feed My people: Ye
have scattered My flock and driven them away. * * Behold, I will visit upon
you the evil of your doings, saith Yahweh."
All of us are responsible to Yahweh for our actions. The
ministers have taken upon themselves a far more terrible responsibility than
anyone else. They have voluntarily assumed the duty to speak the word of Yahweh,
all of it without dilution. Other civilizations have perished because
they were not told Yahweh's truth, so it could become part of their nature. Our
civilization will also perish, if we follow down the same path. This is why it
is so important to give this warning while there is still time. Our churches
send missionaries to the African and Asiatic heathen, when there is more need
that someone send missionaries to the churches! Jeremiah 23:11-12 states
it very plainly, "For both the prophet and priest are profane; yea, in
My house I have found their wickedness, saith Yahweh. Wherefore their way
shall be unto them as a slippery way in the darkness: they shall be driven on,
and fall therein: for I will bring calamity on them, even the year of their
visitation, saith Yahweh."
Why do I dwell so much on this theme? Because Yahweh
thought it important enough to place it all throughout the Bible. Over a period
of many centuries, Yahweh kept insisting on this point. Yahweh knew that so many
would preach the doctrines, which are popular and financially profitable,
leaving out the stern and bitter truths, which are necessary to our very
Read what is written in Malachi 2:1-8. "And
now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you: if ye will not hear, and if ye
will not lay it to heart, to give glory to My name, saith Yahweh, I will even
send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them
already, because ye did not lay it to heart. * * And ye shall know that I have
sent this commandment unto you. * * For the priest's lips should keep knowledge,
and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of Yahweh.
But ye are departed out of the way: ye have caused many to stumble at the law:
ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith Yahweh."
Isn't this true of today's churches? They teach that all
of Yahweh's laws have been abolished, that His promises to His people have been
canceled. They also teach that we must not remain separate, but must integrate
with all the races and all religions in universal brotherhood. They teach we
must find peace in the United Nations, which is dominated by pagan and satanic
nations, working for the purposes of Satan!
Have they never heard the only prince of peace is
Yahshua? Haven't they heard He alone can bring peace, righteousness and
prosperity? Don't they realize every time they tell us to recognize all the
pagan religions as the equal of Christianity, in order to secure complete
harmony with them, they are leading us to turn our backs on the one and only
true God, Yahweh? They must pay for this and so must we, if we follow them!
Most of the major churches of today have failed to preach
the real word of Yahweh as found in the Bible. Instead, they preach what some
call the social gospel, or to be more truthful, the socialist gospel. The things
the churches falsely teach their people are Yahweh's will, are really the direct
opposite of what the Bible actually says. The doctrines of Satan are preached in
many churches, as being the word of Yahweh.
Yahweh foresaw all this thousands of years ago, and He
warned us not to be deceived by it. Jeremiah 23:16-17 is very clear in
Ferrer Fenton's Modern English Translation. "Thus saith Yahweh: Listen not
to the message of the preachers who preach to you. They preach nonsense to you,
a vision from their own hearts. They do not preach from the mouth of the Ever
Living. They say to the despisers of the message of the Ever Living, Peace will
come to you; and to all who follow the ideas of their own minds they say, no
harm will come upon you."
The preachers certainly are preaching as Jeremiah said
they would. They tell us that peace is to be had from treaties made with Russia,
in the United Nations, even though no peace has ever come from that source. Jeremiah
14:13-14 again gives the warning, "Then said I, Ah, Yahweh! Behold, the
prophets say unto them, Ye shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have
famine; but I will give you assured peace in this place. Then Yahweh said unto
me, The prophets prophesy lies in My name: I sent them not, neither have I
commanded them, neither spoke to them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and
divination, and a thing of naught and the deceit of their own heart."
Then Jeremiah continues the warning. "I have not
sent these prophets: yet they ran, I have not spoken to them: yet they
prophesied. But if they had stood in My counsel, and had caused My people
to hear My words, then they should have turned them from their evil way,
and from the evil of their doings. * * I have heard what the prophets said, that
prophesy lies in My name. * * How long shall this be in the heart of the
prophets that prophesy lies? Yea, they are
prophets of the deceit of their own heart."
II Peter 2:1 reminds us, "But there were
false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers
among you." Matthew 7:15-16 gives the same warning. "Beware
of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are
ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits: do men gather grapes of
thorns or figs of thistles?"
We have found these ministers and priests to be false
teachers, who have taught that the laws of Yahweh have been set aside and nobody
need obey them now. They have openly doubted the inspiration of the Bible. They
have denied the virgin birth of Yahshua and denied His divinity, honoring Him
only as a great teacher among many other great teachers. This includes a
minister of a New York church who distributed copies of a pornographic novel to
his congregation; he claimed it was no more pornographic than the Bible! These
ministers have laughed away all of Yahweh's warnings about the present time,
which is so near the end of this age. They see no danger in communism or in the
threatening armies and missiles of Russia and China.
All of these false teachings sound very comforting to
those of weak character, who dare not face the realities of this time of crisis.
It is so much easier to just stick our heads in the sand and say there is no
danger, as long as we just give Russia whatever she wants, and try to show them
what good fellows we really are. When these ministers teach these false
doctrines, they inwardly realize they must face the stern anger of the indignant
Yahweh. The next step is to close their minds to this, and tell themselves that
if they just do the best they know how, that is all that Yahweh can require of
us. They conveniently forget that if we would only study the Bible, we would
know how to do much better, for we would know how to obey Yahweh.
This is all in the Bible, written over 2,500 years ahead
of time. It is all recorded in II Timothy 4:2-4, in the Moffatt
translation of the Bible. "I adjure you to preach the word; keep at it in
season and out of season, refuting, checking and exhorting men; never lose
patience with them, and never give up your teaching; for the time will come when
people decline to be taught sound doctrine; they will accumulate teachers to
suit themselves and tickle their own fancies; they will give up listening to the
truth and turn to myths."
New Testament yes, but isn't this exactly what the Old
Testament warned us would happen? Remember what is written in Isaiah 30:9-10,
"This is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear
the law of Yahweh: which say to the seers, See not! And to the prophets,
Prophesy not unto unrighteous things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy
deceits." Jeremiah 5:31 also warns us of these things. "The
prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and My
people love to have it so! And what will ye do in the end thereof?"
These unfaithful shepherds must make some pretense of
finding some of their doctrines in the Bible. If they didn't do this, their
congregations would finally notice that none of their teachings came from the
Bible. For the purpose of deluding their congregations, they like to quote a few
words from the apostle Paul, taken out of context.
For some reason, Paul chose to write in a style, which is
difficult to understand. Therefore, it is easily twisted by quoting limited
parts out of context. This also is nothing new; it was done for the same purpose
in Old Testament times. The apostle Peter warned of this, as recorded in II
Peter 3:16. Speaking of the writings of Paul, Peter says, "As also in
all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things
hard for to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable twist, as
they do also the other scriptures unto their own destruction."
As Solomon said, "There is no new thing under the
sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It hath been
already of old time, which was before us." Yahweh knew from the beginning,
and He warned us repeatedly over thousands of years, to beware of these false
teachers. Yahweh warned us of these unfaithful shepherds, who would come in
these last years of this age.
False doctrines, preached by mere politicians, cannot do
as much damage. These false doctrines are always doctrines of expediency,
against which men of high principle would stand firm.
It is when the unfaithful shepherds are speaking from the pulpit, that
the damage is greatest. They undermine the moral fibre of the best part of the
nation. As Moffatt translates it,
Paul identifies these unfaithful shepherds in II Corinthians 11:13-15.
"Apostles? They are spurious apostles, false workmen. They are masquerading
as apostles of Christ, No wonder they do, for Satan himself masquerades as an
angel of light. So it is no surprise if the devil's ministers also masquerade as
ministers of righteousness."
To sum it all up, we are confronted with unfaithful
shepherds. They have infiltrated and corrupted many of the major churches,
teaching false doctrines. They repudiate the divinity and virgin birth of
Yahshua, ignoring prophecy, teaching compromise with all the evils of Jewish
communism and the world. These unfaithful shepherds teach that we should look to
the United Nations, that parliament of evil, as the only hope of peace. Do not
be deceived by any of them, look to Yahweh's word, the Bible, as the test of all
truth. Repudiate all who seek to substitute modernism for the great revelations
made by the prophets in ancient times. Turn back to the ancient landmarks and
then these unfaithful shepherds cannot deceive you.
