COL. GORDON "Jack" MOHR, AUS RET.
The following article taken from the NEW BEGINNINGS, January 2001 publication, was written by Dr. Howard Rand (deceased), who I consider to be one of the most important Israel Identity scholars of the 20th Century. It is important enough to be read by all Christians, and other than the constant use of the Hebrew words YASHUA for God, and YASHUA for Christ, (which many of our people do not understand), I agree with 100%.fI have no argument with those who wish to use the Hebrew names for God and Jesus, but wish to point it out, so that you who have never heard them are not confused.)
THE GLORY OF THE EMERGING KINGDOM, PART .I

and all kings of the earth thy glory, when Yahweh builds up
There is a pernicious
endeavor, which is in wide-spread evidence today, to eliminate all expectations
concerning the restoration of the
Furthermore, there is an attempt to completely discount any possibility of the return of Yashua to reign over such a Kingdom.
While admitting that the Second Advent of our Savior is to be an actuality, it is denied, that upon His return, He will, as a descendant of His father David, occupy the Throne of David reigning over an earthly Kingdom, in accordance with the annunciation to His mother Mary.
"Yahweh shall give unto Him the throne of His father David: and He shall reign over the house of David forever and of His Kingdom there shall be no end," (Luke 1:32,33).
In the light of this announcement to Mary, vouched for by her Divinely sent informer, the Angel Gabriel, it‑is preposterous to contend that, after Yashua's triumphal return, there will be no Kingdom over which He may reign. The Satanic endeavor; throughout the ages, has been to annihilate the people of the Kingdom so that the promised reign of Yashua as King, over the House `of Jacob, can never come to pass. The failure to obtain this objective has spawned a second‑choice Satanic attempt to spread abroad the lie that there will be no actual Kingdom on earth and thereby thwart the proclamation of the Kingdom evangel, which includes the necessity for the Kingdom people to acknowledge their identity and fulfill the requirements for readiness to receive their coming King. The Psalmist stated:
"Thy people shall be willing in the day of Thy power," (Psalm 110:3)
In order for the Kingdom people to be willing in the day of the manifested power of Yahweh, there must be an acceptance of the proven identity of the people originally constituting the House of Jacob and their modern representatives in the world today. Without this knowledge, no one is in a position to even approach a discussion of the subject of Yashua's reign and His Kingdom.

These are the people who would build the new civilization, having assembled themselves in the Isles of the West, the British Isles, the first gathering point of their "appointed place," (2 Samuel 7:10). The prophet declared they would continue to spread out to establish the earth and inherit the "desolate heritages" (Isaiah 49:8); that is, the North American Continent, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, etc., These, Isaiah maintains, are the descendants of Abraham. By no stretch of the imagination, could they be called Jews,’ for they had forgotten that Abraham was their forefather. The Jews, on the other hand, (some of them, erroneously), have continued to claim Abraham as their ancestor.

"For lo, I will command, and I will sift (marginal rendering: "cause to move"), the House of Israel; among all nations, like corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth (i.e., "to be lost to Divine cognizance").
As ,a matter of fact, wherever the
Reformation of the 16th and 17th Centuries ignited the flame of spiritual
revival, this was sparked by descendants of the House of.
The 19th chapter of Exodus sets forth the inception of the Kingdom of Yahweh do earth when the specially selected descendants of Abraham, addressed as the "House of Jacob" and .also "the children of Israel", were informed, in words given by Yahweh to Moses, their leader: "Ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests (administrators), and an holy (set apart) nation." (Exodus 19:6). Following the organization of the seed of Abraham, through Isaac and Jacob, into Yahweh's Kingdom-nation, the Commandments, Statutes and Judgments of the Law of Yahweh were promulgated, to be administered as their Constitution.
the founding of the
The covenant that Yahweh made with the people of His Kingdom contained the "If" and "But" clauses of the Laws of Yahweh, that is, blessings if they kept the terms of the covenant, and curses if they refused to abide by its terms, (Deuteronomy 28). Nevertheless, in either case the covenant remained in force, either for good or evil, according to the choice and conduct of the people. In the formal inception of the Kingdom„ the people made a solemn vow, which was reitereated three times":
"All the people answered together, and said, All that Yahweh hath spoken we will do," (Exodus 19:8).
Throughout all the succeeding generations, the Kingdom people have been bound by this oath, even to suffering under the stipulation of the "But clauses" of the law for their violation of the terms of the covenant of nationhood. Howbeit, Yahweh never has - and never will - repudiate His Kingdom, or abandon His people. The Divine pledge of forbearance is inherent in the pronouncement given though the Prophet Ezekiel which contains the warnings that Yahweh will permits severe tribulation to overtake them to compel His people to recognize the necessity to keep the vow of their forefathers:
"As I live, saith Yahweh, surely with a mighty hand and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out, will I rule
over you. And I will bring you out from among the people, and
will gather you out of the countries where
you are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm and with
fury poured out. And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and
there will I plead with you face to face. Like as I pled with your fathers in
the wilderness of the
The context clearly indicates that this message is addressed to the House of Israel, which would be functioning as the House of Jacob during the closing days. of the present world order. As a result of the pressure of Yahweh’s hand resting heavily upon His people at this time, Yahweh declared in (Ezekiel 20:44).
"Ye shall know that I am Yahweh, when I have wrought with you for my name's sake, not according to your wicked ways, nor according to your corrupt doings, O ye House of Israel, saith Yahweh," (Ezekiel 20:44).
the very outset of the establishment of His Kingdom at
During the early history of the Kingdom, the tribe of Benjamin was purged when all but six hundred men perished in, (Judges 20:47). Yashua selected them from this tribe to become His disciples, for the Benjamites were Galileans, not Jews. (Only the traitor Judas Iscariot was a Jew - MOHR). Because the Jews refused to accept Yashua as their Messiah, they ceased to be numbered, as a nation-among His Kingdom people, a foreknown fact prophesied by Daniel:
"And they (the Jews), shall no more be His people, or the prince's (Messiah's) future people," (Daniel 9:26, marginal rendering).
Yashua Himself told the Jewish leaders:
'"Therefore I say unto you, The Kingdom of Yahweh shall be taken from you, and given unto a nation, (not the church as some teach - MOHR), bringing forth the fruits thereof," (Matthew 21:43).
those who argue that the
"Hear the word of Yahweh, O ye nations, and declare it in the Isles afar off, and say, He that scattereth Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock. For Yahweh hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that is stronger than he," (Jeremiah 31:10,11).
Looking forward to the latter days, following the First Advent of our Savior, and in preparation for His Second Advent, when the nations of His people will awaken to their identity
and return to Him, Jeremiah prophesied:
the days come, saith Yahweh, that I will make a new
covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah; not according
to the covenant that I made with their fathers, in the day that I took them by
the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, which covenant they brake,
although I was a husband to them, saith Yahweh. But
this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of
Furthermore, Yahweh confirms the perpetuity of the House of David and the Davidic throne, ruling over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob:
"For thus saith Yahweh: David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the House of Israel," (Jeremiah- 33:17).
Therefore, it is over the House of Israel that the Throne of David is to have a permanent establishment. To validate the enduring existence of His Kingdom people, and the continuity of David's throne, the word of Yahweh, came through Jeremiah, saying:
"Consider thou not what the people (i.e. those people who doubt the words 0 Yahweh concerning His purposes - (See Ezekiel 37:11) have spoken, saying,” The two families which Yahweh hath chosen, He hath even cast them off? Thus they have despised my people, that they should be no more a nation before them. Thus saith
Yahweh: If my covenant with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth; then shall I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David his servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob ,• for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them," (Jeremiah 33:24-26).
The New English Bible renders-the final clause: "I will restore their fortunes and have compassion on them.
Let those in he Christian world who would belittle- or deny – the- present day existence of the throne and the Kingdom, ponder well the prophetic substantiation of Yahweh's promise in regard to the Throne of David established without disruption over His Kingdom, an earthly Kingdom that is to have no end. Following the institution of the Throne of David, when King Solomon began his reign, we have added verification that it is Yahweh's throne in this statement:
Solomon sat on the throne of Yahweh as king instead of David his father, and
prospered, and all
Prophet Micah testifies concerning a day coming, when the reign of the
"But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain (Kingdom) of the House of Yahweh shall be established in the top of the mountains (over all nations), and it shall be exhalted above the hills (lesser governments): and people shall flow into it," (Micah 4:1).
In his contemporary, Dr: Adam Clarke states this is a prophecy
of the establishment of the
".And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain (Kingdom) of Yashua, and to the house of Yahweh of Jacob (that is, the house of Jacob, over which Yashua is to reign); and he will teach us his ways, and we will walk in his paths; for the law shall go forth of Zion (the seat of the government and administration in the Kingdom), and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem (the center of reverence and worship within the Kingdom), And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more," (Micah 4:2,3).
With the arrival of universal peace on earth, and the implementation of equity and justice within the Kingdom, its citizens will experience well-being and security according to Micah:
"They shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of Yahweh of hosts hath spoken it".
The Prophet Isaiah corroborates this happy outlook, and refers to the coming birth of the Child who would grow to manhood, to be called "Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty E1, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace", (Isaiah 9:6). The future administration of the affairs of the Kingdom, will rest on His shoulders, ruling from the Throne of David:
"Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his Kingdom, to
order and establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of Yahweh of hosts, will perform this," (Isaiah 9:7).
Isaiah makes a tacit reference to the rejection of the Jews because of their refusal to accept Yashua as the messiah and the consequent-transfer of the Kingdom to "a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof":

"Alas! For that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it. For it shall come to pass in that day, saith Yahweh, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and I will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him: but they shall serve Yahweh their ELOHIYM, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them," (Jeremiah 30:7-9).
''yoke' typifies servitude and latter-day
"When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the spirit of Yahweh shall lift up a standard against him (or as stated in the margin, "put him to flight").
At the same time, ecclesiastical and evangelical leaders are failing to feed His flock and are sternly censured:
"Seemeth it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good pasture, but ye must tread down with your feet the residue of your pastures?, And to have drunk of the deep waters, for ye must foul the residue with your feet? And as for my flock, they
eat that which ye have trodden with your feet, and they drink that which ye have fouled with your feet," (Ezekiel 34:18,19).
According to Jeremiah, it is during the Time of Jacob's Trouble - which the Prophet Daniel. refers to as a Time of Trouble, unlike any other previously experienced (Daniel 12:1) - that Yahweh will move to bring about the rescue of His people.

The surety of Yahweh's word is defined as a covenant, guaranteeing its fulfillment in every letter
"As for me, this is my covenant with them who are righteous among the Kingdom people, saith Yahweh. My spirit that is upon thee (Isaiah) and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith Yahweh, from henceforth and forever", (Isaiah 59:21).
