OF TRUE ISRAEL
Part 2 of 9
by Lt. Col. Gordon "Jack" Mohr, USA Ret.
(Honorary Brig. Gen. C.E.D.S.)
"The Lord hath poured out upon you (Israel) the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets (preachers) and your rulers (politicians), the seers hath He covered . Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honor me, but have removed their heart far from me. . . Therefore, behold, I will do a marvelous work and a wonder among them: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent (those who take part in the political process) will be hid." - Isaiah 29:10, 13
THE FAITH OF ANGLO-ISRAELITES!
Owing to mis-information in some cases, and deliberate falsehood and lack of knowledge in others, critics, as we have seen say: "You Identity people have no plan of Salvation; you have no Cross, and you glorify the Nation above Christ and personal salvation." Sad to say, there are a few Identity preachers who would fit into this mold. These teach that all is necessary for salvation is for you to be white and of the seed of Abraham. (We could say that fundamentalists have their problem areas too.) The vast number of our Identity people reject this kind of simplistic thinking, for we know that it is contrary to the teaching of God's Word. When Jesus spoke to the Pharisee Nicodemus in John 3:3, he spoke to a man who was an Israelite by blood; a Jew by religion and a Pharisee by political party. He said ". . . except a man be born again, he cannot SEE the kingdom of God." (A clearer translation would have been "born from above.") There are no ''ifs'', and ''ands'', and ''buts" about this statement, it is spoken in a language that even a child can understand. It is further explained by the most loved verse in the Bible, John 3:16, that tells us that WHOSOEVER (Greek "Pas" meaning: "all; any; everyone; as many as") believe on Him (the only begotten Son of God) should not perish, but have everlasting life." This is reiterated in John 1:9, which tells us: "But as many as receive Him (Jesus), to them gave He (God) the power, to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name." THAT'S IDENTITY THEOLOGY, my friend!
We believe the Bible is the WORD OF GOD written; and therefore is true from Genesis to Revelation. That it is applicable to us, the Old Testament as well as the New. Having said this, there is no reason for me to enlarge on my faith, but owing to the ignorance of our critics, whether well meaning or feigned, let me enumerate some of the articles of Identity Faith:
1 - WE BELIEVE IN THE DIETY - the Godship of our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe He was the Creator of this world and all things in this universe, (John 1:3). We believe He was one with God the Father, (John 1:1, 2.)
2 - WE BELIEVE in the Gospel of Personal Salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ, (Ephesians 1:7) - "In whom we have redemption through His (Christ's) blood, the forgiveness of sin, according to the riches of His grace."
3 - WE BELIEVE IN THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD ON EARTH, exactly as He taught us to pray: "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done; on EARTH as it is in heaven," (Matthew 6:10; Luke 11:2). We believe there is only one Gospel of Jesus Christ and this is the Gospel of the Kingdom. It is impossible to teach the Gospel of the Kingdom, without the Gospel of Personal Salvation, but unfortunately, you can teach Personal Salvation, and miss out completely on the Gospel of the Kingdom which occupies two-thirds.of the Scriptures. This has been done in a majority of our churches.
4 - WE BELIEVE IN the absolute necessity of the spiritual re-birth.
5 - WE BELIEVE IN the Second Advent of our Lord and that He will return prior to the Millennium, to rule and Reign on this earth as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
6 - WE BELIEVE IN THE RESURRECTION of the dead and the translation of living Christians from a corruptible to an incorruptible body to take place at Christ's return. This will not be a Rapture, where the saints are removed from this earth during the Great Tribulation, since Scripture teaches that it is the wicked who will be removed (see Matthew 24:37-39). Compare this with the Parable of the Wheat and Tares in Matthew 13:30-41 and the Parable of the Good and Bad Fish in Matthew 13:49. There is no indication anywhere in Scripture that the righteous will be removed from this earth.
7 - WE BELIEVE IN THE DIVINE INSPIRATION OF THE SCRIPTURES, not only that they were Divinely inspired, but that human writers actually wrote only the words which were in-breathed into their minds by the Holy Spirit. (This applies only to the original words which were in Hebrew, Greek, and Aramic, the languages in which the Bible was written.) We know, that mortal men since then, have changed the meanings of many of these words as they were translated into English. Therefore it is important for every concerned Bible study, to check out the meaning of important English words in their original languages. This can be done with the use of a good Bible Concordance, such as Strong's Exhaustive Concordance, which was written specifically for the King James Version.
8- WE BELIEVE AND CAN PROVE that the Bible is true.
9 - WE BELIEVE IN THE LINEAL DESCENT of the Anglo-Saxon and related peoples from the 12 tribes of Israel, as distinct from the people we call Jews today and that these true Israelites are the only peoples who bear the Biblical "fingerprints" of Scripture.
10 - WE BELIEVE THAT\ THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA are the lands which were promised to King David in 2 Samuel 7:10 and that North America is the only place on earth which bears the identifying marks of this NEW JER USA LEM!
COVENANTS OF THE BIBLE
While most Christians recognize the two great Covenants which divide our Bible into two major parts, the Old and New Testament, many do not know that there were a number of others which were also important, in fact, there were eight in all.
It is important that our people know about these Covenants, for they contain not only God's promises to the Special People called Israel, but His plan and purpose for the world and all the peoples in it.
Listed below, are the eight Covenants, Almighty God made with men whom He had formed from the dust of the earth. (Here we enter into an entirely different area than that taught by most churches, since we believe the Bible distinctly teaches that the Adamic race, from which Israel sprang, was of a different source from that of the colored races. This hinges on- the Scriptural account, which MUST be taken literally. In Gen. 1:26, God created man in his image. He created them male and female and gave them dominion over the earth. But in Genesis 2:5-7 we find a second and different account of man's beginning. (Orthodoxy says this is one and the same account, but it cannot be, for there are dramatic differences between the two.) In Genesis 2:5 we read ". and there was not a man to till the ground." Then notice in verse 7 that God "formed man from the dust of the earth." The first man was "created", not formed. The Hebrew word for "create" is "bara" which means "to make out of nothing." Notice too, that this second man was not created "male and female" as was the first creation in Genesis 1:27, but was created in the male form only. It was only later when no "help meet" could be found for Adam," (Gen. 2:20) that God made woman, from part of man's body (vs. 21-23.) WE BELIEVE that the dark races were from the first creation and that the white, or Adamic races came from the second "formation." The name ADAUM in Hebrew means "to show blood in the face," or be capable of blushing. This is why we believe there is no contradiction between the Bible and those scientists who insist they have found the remains of men who are millions of years older than our Adamic ancestors. They no doubt come from the colored races who were created in Genesis one.
The Biblical Covenants:
1 - THE EDENIC COVENANT. This was made between God and Adam in the Garden of Eden, see Genesis 2:15.
2- THE ADAMIC COVENANT. This was made with Adam after the fall, (see Genesis 3:15). It promised perpetual warfare between the "seed" of the woman, and the "seed" of the serpent. (Some Identity pastors teach that this was a literal "seed of Satan" which culminated in a people we now call Jews. (See John 8:44). Not all Identity people teach this. I DO NOT!)
3 - THE NOAHIC COVENANT. Made with Noah after the flood, in which God promised never to destroy the world again with a flood, see (Gen. 9:1).
4- THE ABRAHAMIC COVENANT. Made by God, f, t with Abraham and later confirmed and enlarged on to Isaac and Jacob, (see Genesis 12:2, 3; 15:18.)
5 - THE MOSAIC COVENANT. Made with Moses and Israel at Sinai. (See Exodus 24:8).
6- THE PALESTINIAN COVENANT. Made with Israel as they were about to enter Palestine, (see Leviticus 26; Deut. 28, 29, 30.) We believe the provisions of Deuteronomy, both the blessings and the curses, apply to modern Israel today. That's us!
7 - THE DAVIDIC COVENANT. Made with David and his seed forever. (See 2 Samuel 7:10-16.)
8 - THE NEW COVENANT. Made with twelve tribed Israel through the shed blood of their Messiah, Jesus the Christ, (see Jeremiah 31:31; Hebrews 8:8).
(While I do not recommend the Scofield Bible as a study Bible because he is a confirmed Christian Zionist and a teacher of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture, there are many excellent explanations on these covenants in his footnotes. They can be of help, if one is careful to remember his background.)
At this point, we need to examine one of these Covenants THE ABRAHAMIC COVENANT, made by God with Abraham in Genesis 12:2, about 1921 B.C.
In this Covenant we find the beginning of a progressive relation of God's Great Plan and l Isose for this earth and the people living on it. In a day when men and women are more and more seeking to "find a purpose for their lives," when youth are asking "who are we and why are we here? "it is essential for Christians in particular to understand the Scriptures. In the study of this great covenant, we will learn how Almighty God intends to restore a ruined world - a world ruined by Satan's lies - lies which caused our parents Adam and Eve to sin by dis-obedience to Him in the Garden of Eden, and so effect all their progeny.
It should be noticed that this is an "unconditional Covenant." By this we mean it was a promise made by God, to Abraham, which He (God) would carry out regardless of whether Abraham and his progeny held up their "end of the bargain" or not. A careful study of Genesis 12 to the end of Revelation will reveal this. The entire Bible, beginning with Genesis 12, is the majestic story of one man and his descendants. This major theme flows through the Bible like a mighty river on its unstoppable course to the sea.
Because this Covenant is "unconditional", nothing that Abraham's descendants, might be, or d6, can in any way change or abrogate it. It is a firm, promise by God which cannot be broken. God swore on His own oath, that this COVENANT is his declared will and purpose. Regardless of how wicked and wayward later generations might become, regardless of how severely God might have to punish them, His promises to Abraham WILL BE FULFILLED. MEN CANNOT CHANGE OR ALTER THEM, since GOD HAS SWORN TO IT!
The writer of the book of Hebrews understood this when he wrote in Hebrews 11:8, 9 - "By faith, Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed: and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles (tents or cloth huts) with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise.
The ABRAHAMIC COVENANT was first formed in Genesis 12:2-4 where God unconditionally promised Abraham: "I (God) will make of thee (Abraham) a great nation, and I will bless thee and make thy name great, and thou shalt be a blessing: (Now we come to a part of this Covenant which has been completely twisted out of shape by the evangelicals and fundamentalists) and I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee, and in thee shall ALL the nations of the earth be blessed."
Our detractors say: "See! This means the Jews!" Recently, Dr. Jerry Falwell of the Moral Majority sent a letter to thousands of American Christians, begging for funds for a new organization called CHRISTIANS FOR ISRAEL. He asked for contributions to aid the anti-Christ Zionists in Palestine and ended his letter with this veiled threat. "Either American Christians will help the Jews, or God will curse them!" This is a complete perversion of Genesis 12:3. This is not what these verses say. Do not attempt to "read something into them that is not there."
These words in verse three are simply God's promise to Abraham. Actually, they say nothing about his "seed." Paraphrasing them, without changing their meaning, they simply say: "Abraham, I am going to bless you, and if anyone blesses and helps you, I will bless them, and if anyone tries to hurt you in any way, I will place my curse on them." There is nothing here about a people called JEWS, who did not show up on the scene until some 1200 years later, when we first find Biblical account of them in 2 Kings 16:6, and find them fighting against Israel. Strange, isn't it, when our pastors tell us that they are one and the same? There is no implication here that these blessings and curses will be carried down to future generations. This is something the Bible scholars have read into the Word.
This Covenant was further confirmed in Genesis 13:14-17; 15:1-7, 18; 17:1-8. It was again confirmed with Isaac in Genesis 26:23, 24 - "And the Lord appeared unto him (Isaac) and said, Go down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I will tell thee of. Sojourn (Hebrew, "guur", meaning "to turn aside from the road for lodging.") in this land, and I will be with thee and bless thee; for unto you and your seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I swore unto Abraham thy father. And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and I will give unto thy seed all these countries, and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed." (Are you so naive as to believe that eighteen million Jews fulfill this promise of a "great multitude like the stars in number?")
Again in Genesis 28:13, 14, we find God's Covenant with Abraham enlarged with Abraham's grandson Jacob. After reiterating the promises of the land on which Jacob stood, God said, verse 14: "And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south, and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed." This is further confirmed in Genesis 35:9-12.
It is interesting, when you come to think of it, that Abraham and his descendants through Isaac and Jacob are the people with whom God made His Covenant. In other words they are "God's Covenant People." Did you know that the Hebrew word for "Covenant" is "Berith" or "B'rith." (Strong's Concordance, (#1285), the word for "man" in Hebrew is "ish." Put them together and you have the word "B'rith 'ish" or "British."
Now I know that Identity detractors like to laugh at this and say it is a coincidence without meaning. But Abraham was the first "covenant man," and he was "B'rith 'ish" and like it or not, he was the progenitor of our Anglo-Saxon people. You can't change that by any twisting of history or scripture, or by the use of any derogatory terminology. The Word of Almighty God still stands.
A close check of this Covenant will reveal that it is the Divine Charter of the Covenant People, a people whom God ordained to become a nation and then a company of nations (commonwealth) which would never be destroyed.
The New Testament mentions this Covenant in Romans 8:16, 17, when the Apostle Paul said: "The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: and if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Jesus Christ . . ." To the believers in Galatia he says: "Now to Abraham and his seed (descendants) were the promises made. He saith, not to seeds, as to many: but as of one. And to thy seed which is Christ. And this I say, that the Covenant, that was confirmed before God in Christ, the law . . . cannot be disannulled, that it should make the promises of none effect," (Gal. 3:16, 17).
So what we need to do is search for the legitimate heirs of Abraham in this generation. When a rich man dies, we can always expect to find a number of people who will claim heirship . . . relatives turn up which had been unknown before. The task of the court is to determine who the true heirs are. So since this Covenant is an "eternal inheritance for the offspring of Abraham", we can expect many to claim to be "Abraham's heirs according to the promise."
It is not unusual in the light of this, to find questions raised such as. "Who are the Chosen People?" This is natural and to be expected. But when we find people who turn down their inheritance and give it to hated aliens who are trying to destroy everything they say they believe in, when we hear them say: "So I'm an Israelite; what difference does that make as long as I'm saved?" We find people who are doing the same thing Esau did, when he sold his inheritance for a "bowl of red beans and rice." I'm quite sure that none of these Christians would turn down a big material inheritance by saying: "I'm a Christian you know and my inheritance is in heaven, so what difference does it makes to me who gets that million dollars." Don't be silly. You know what the reaction would be as well as I. use>But when it comes to accepting an "earthly inheritance" that God has waiting for them, most White Christians have become so brainwashed by the "mind detergent" that has been used against them in their churches, that they don't even know they are heirs to an earthly promise and instead opt for "pie in the sky," which most of them are not honestly sure they will receive. (I say this, on the evidence of their actions.)
But who in this generation are the "seed of Abraham," the friend of God? There are a multitude of answers, but only one correct one. Most say the present day Jews are the ones, without ever studying Scripture to find out the truth; others say it is a born-again Christian. While a few 6f us "nuts", recognize the Anglo-Identity truth taught in the Bible and are laughed to scorn by our fundamentalist brethren. Louis De Boer, in his book THE NEW PHARISEEISM, which we have already discussed, says on p.6 - "It is to the task of refuting one such answer (Anglo-Israel Identity) an answer the author considers especially pernicious (highly destructive), an answer that can only be a damning delusion to those who confide in it, that this book is dedicated." In other words, the author is giving us clear warning that he is out to destroy Israel Identity by any means possible, because he hates its truth.
The battle over who are the heirs to the promise is almost as old as the promise itself. Esau tried to take it from the true heir, just as the evangelicals and fundamentalists would today. They would like to take the promise from true Israel and give it to Esau's descendants, who pose as the true Israelites. (If you want to find out the end fate of this error, read Malachi 1:2-4).
It is quite interesting to note the message of our risen Lord, to the church at Smyrna, Rev. 2:9 - ". . . I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are JEWS and are not, BUT ARE OF THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN." (Emphasis added.)
This message from our Savior, was sent to a church which was under merciless persecution not only from the Romans, but a Jewish element which was bitterly hostile to Christians, and which like the Zionists of today were dedicated to its destruction. (In this connection, it is interesting to note that Emperor Nero's sine, was a Jewess who hated Christians with a virulent hatred.)
Smyrna was the center of the "Imperial Cultus," which mercilessly persecuted any religious sect which did not recognize Caesar as God. For some reason, which I will not attempt to explain, this persecution did not reach to the Jews in Rome. These Jews, not the "seed of Abraham," as De Boer claims, but the "pseudo-Jews" of Smyrna, had been exempted by royal decree from having to worship Caesar. They were able to carry on their heathen Talmudic worship without coming under the Roman ban for treason and blasphemy. These were the same crowd who a few years before had cried to Pontius Pilate: "Away with Him! (Christ) Away with Him! Crucify Him. We have no king but Caesar." (John 19:15).
Then, as now, we find these imposters claiming to be of the "privileged seed." They were quick to denounce Christians, for they knew these were the "true seed of Abraham." Truly the Jews of Smyrna, acted as the Synagogue of Satan, fulfilling Christ's description of them in John 8:44, when He said: "Ye are of your father the devil . . ."
Jesus further clarified His statements regarding the Jews in John 10:26, when he said: "But ye believe not, BECAUSE YE ARE NOT OF MY SHEEP," (Emphasis added.) How much plainer does the Lord have to get before you will accept His teachings?
Yet in spite of what the Scripture says, men like De Boer are strong in their attempts to protect the Christ haters of Judaism, while laying the blame on those of us who "know and can prove from Scripture, that we are heirs to the promises made to Abraham."
The Abrahamic Covenant was given in six distinct parts:1 - "I will make of thee a great nation." Genesis 12:2; 13:16; 15:5; 46:3. By no stretch of the most vivid imagination can these promises be made to fit the people we call JEWS.In the Abrahamic Covenant an original grant of land was made in Genesis 15:18. It was a vast tract of land, much greater than all of Palestine. It is what the Israeli, the "pseudo-heirs" of the promise want today.
2 - "I will bless thee," (Gen. 12:2; 22:17; 26:24).
3 - "I will make thy name great." (Gen. 12:2). Does this have any significance in the fact that of all the nations on the face of the earth, our mother nation England is known as GREAT BRITAIN? (Great Covenant men).
4 - "Thou shalt be a blessing." (Gen. 12:2; Gal. 3:14). "That the blessings of Abraham might come on the Gentiles (Greek, "ethnos" meaning: "non-Jew nations.") through Jesus Christ: that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith." The Jews have never been anything but a curse to any nation where they have resided, sure a few of them have done noble things for their fellow men, but every time they have, they have "demanded their pound of flesh" in return. Paul said of them in 1 Thess. 2:15 that "they please not God and are CONTRARY to all men." This is why they have been universally disliked and persecuted.
5 - "I will curse them that curse thee." This promise was made to Abraham, nothing was mentioned regarding his descendant and certainly in all honesty, we cannot equate this promise to the Jews, (Gen. 12:3; 27:29).
6 - "In thee shall all the seed of the earth be blessed." (Gen. 12:3; 18:18; 28:14). I believe that most Christians rightly teach that this blessing would come to mankind through Jesus Christ. But there were many, many minor blessings which came from Abraham's descendants. More good has come to mankind through the White Christian nations we sometimes call Christendom, than from all the other nations combined. We could mention the abolishing of slavery, which is still practiced in many parts of the world; Governments built on the Ten Commandments; care of the needy, world-wide; publishing and proclaiming the Gospel. None of these things have ever been done by~the Jews, yet they are the "fingerprints" of true-Israel.
While Abraham could not understand how his seed could inherit these lands, since he was 100 years old and his wife Sarah had been barren and was ninety herself, he asked God to prove it to him and God swore an oath with Abraham, the same as men make with each other. Men make verbal promises which are binding in a court of law; but God's oath was eternal, since He never dies. The symbolism of Gen. 15:1-18, it that of passing through death.
The promises regarding this vast land were "modified by prophecies of three dispossessions and restorations."1 - Genesis 15:13-16 - 400 years of bondage in Egypt;It should be noted here and emphasized over and over again, that Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob WERE NOT JEWS! They could not be for the simple reason there were no people known as Jews, anywhere on earth.
2 - Jeremiah 25:11, 12, seventy years of Babylonian captivity; and,
3 - Deuteronomy 28:62-65; 30:1-5, which covers the Seven Times of Punishment on Israel for their sin, or 2520 years (see Leviticus 26). The Third dispossession began about 740 B.C. when the 21/2 tribes of Israel, known as Judah were taken captive into Babylon. This dispossession was completed when a handful of Israelites were divorced from the land in 580 B.C. (Jeremiah 52). Full restoration for "true Israel" is promised at the return of Jesus Christ, our Lord and King, under the Davidic Covenant, (see Deut. 30:3; Jer. 23:25-8; Ezek. 37:21; Luke 1:30~33; Acts 15:14-17.)
THE DEDICATION OF OUR RACE
If you will carefully read Genesis 22:1-18, you will see where "God did tempt Abraham." (Strong's Concordance says that "the English word "temple," is "bacah" in Hebrew, which literally means: "to test.") You remember the story, I'm sure. Abraham was told to take his only son Isaac, his only legitimate son, who would inherit the birthright, and sacrifice him to God on Mt. Moriah.
Scripture says that Abraham believed God. He must have wondered how God would fulfill His promises in Isaac, if he died. Yet the record shows that He obeyed God without question. In Hebrews 11:17, the great Faith Chapter of the Bible, we read:
"By faith, Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac. Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure." To all intents and purposes, in the mind of Abraham, his son Isaac was dead when the angel stayed his knife hand. Mentally, as far as Abraham was concerned, the sacrifice had been made.
This meant that Isaac and all his children, in all their generations were especially dedicated to God. The Sacrificial ceremony was the dedication of our race, who were not even in existence at the time. These descendants of Isaac had been "fore-ordained" by God, "pre-destined" if you will, for a special service for all mankind. In Romans 8:28, 29 we read: "For we know that ALL things work together for good, to them that love God, (sometimes we forget this part) TO THEM WHICH ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE. For whom He did the use of the name Jesus Christ means "the Anointed Savior." (Some Identity folks argue that both these words are of heathen usage and that the Hebrew word YASHUAH should only be used, but since I do not speak or write in Hebrew, but in English, I use the English translation.)
Christ is the "Servant of the Lord, through whose mediation, the world will eventually be brought back to God. The Dedicated Race, the descendants of Isaac, are also "anointed of God," to become His Servant Race. (see Ps. 105:15; Hab. 3:13.)
In 1 Peter 2:9, the Apostle Peter, speaking to the "strangers scattered abroad" in Asia (Israelites), said "Ye are a chosen generation, (Greek, "genos" meaning: "offspring") a royal priesthood, an holy nation, that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness, into His marvelous light." By no stretch of the imagination can this "nation" be translated to mean "church," as many fundamentalists and evangelicals teach.
Jesus came into this world for the express purpose of saving the "lost sheep of the house of Israel," (Matthew 15:24). This word "lost" as used here does not mean "unsaved" as many teach, but comes from two Greek words "apo" and "ollumi", which literally mean: ''those who were banished for punishment." Of course, this was what happened to the tribes of Israel.
Paul's statement in Gal. 3:16 had a two fold application which many pastors are prone to forget - individual and national.
If you will recall, Abraham had two sons at the time of this testing. One was Ishmael by his bondswoman Hagar, and the other Isaac, by his legitimate wife Sarah.
Isaac was the child of promise; he was the only child of Sarah and was the promised seed, (see Gen. 17:19-21). Later Abraham had six more sons by Keturah. Paul tells the Galatian Christians that the promises were not made to "all of Abraham's descendants," but were to be fulfilled through "one seed," the
"Anointed," the "child of promise." He then tells us that through this "one seed," Isaac, would come the "one seed," through which all mankind would be blessed, Jesus Christ the Redeemer.
We find the first promise of this "Divine Seed," in Genesis 3:15, where the "seed of the woman" (Christ) would crush the head of the serpent, who was her and God's enemy.
Here for the first time we begin the magnificent highway of the "blood line of Christ". (His complete genealogy can be found in Luke 2:23-28.)
While Abraham had eight sons, only one was to be the father of the race who would eventually become a blessing to all people and who would figure in the physical birth of the Son of God.
This incident, which can be called "the election of race," deals with one particular race of men who were selected by God to become "servant-rulers." First they were to prove themselves as servants, before they were given the opportunity to "rule and reign" with the King.
This is one of the major lessons our Identity Christians need to learn. Too often we was"puffed up" with pride because we know we are God's special people. This knowledge should have the opposite effect on us. It should make us very humble, for we should recognize that with our privilege status, goes a thousand fold increase in our responsibilities to God and our fellow men. Once when Christ's disciples were squabbling over which one of them would be the most important in the kingdom, He said: "Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted," (Matt. 23:10-12).
Another time in Matthew 20:25-27, our Lord said: "Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles (nations) exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. BUT IT SHALL NOT BE SO AMONG YOU: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister: and whosoever would be chief among you, let him be your servant." In other words, you first have to demonstrate obedience as a "private," before you can become a "general." I've gone through this humbling experience in my own life.
So if you get "puffed up" because you happen to be a White, Anglo-Saxon-Israelite, remember you must first prove yourself as a "handy-man" before you can become the "straw boss." This doctrine is completely opposite that which the Jews are taught in their Talmud, which tells them that when they are in charge of this world, all the wealth of the "goyim" (non-Jew animal - which means you) will be in their hands and every Jew will have 2,000 "goyim" slaves. Does this sound like the kind of a world you would like to live in?
The election of grace, deals with individual salvation and eternal life. This has no regard for race or color. (This statement is going to elicit some howls of anguish from some Identity leaders who teach otherwise, but it is nevertheless true.) Every individual member of the Chosen Race, must be "saved" in the same manner as all non-Israelites. God is not a respecter of persons when it comes to salvation. Everyone can only be saved through faith in the shed blood of God's Son, Jesus the Christ. Only through Jesus Christ can Israelites become "inheritors of the promises made to Abraham." Anyone who tells you that you are righteous in the eyes of God, because of the color of your skin, is a liar! There will be many Israelites who will be rejected and will not make it into the Kingdom, because they refused to bow the knee to the King. Jesus told His disciples in Matthew 8:11 - ". . . many shall come from the east and west and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of Heaven. But the children of the kingdom shall be cast into outer darkness; there shall be weeping, and wailing, and gnashing of teeth." Why? Because they "wanted to do their own thing," rather than accept the King's way of doing things.
In Ezekiel 20:37, 38 God is speaking to Israel in the "latter days," before He sits on His throne in the Kingdom. He says: "And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant; and I WILL PURGE OUT FROM AMONG YOU THE REBELS, AND THEM THAT TRANSGRESS AGAINST ME . . "(Emphasis added.)
To better understand this, we need to know something about the customs of Ezekiel's day. When a king came into a land to accept a kingdom, it was the custom for the men of that land to appear before him on bended knees, where they asked him to forgive them for any act of rebellion they may have committed against him. When they received this forgiveness, they then pledged "fealty" to him. This was an act where they then said in essence: "From now on, I belong to you. I will follow you faithfully; I will obey your law; I will be true to you, even unto death." This in essence is what "being born again" is all about. So remember this, my dear Identity brethren, you too MUST accept the king, if you expect to enter His Kingdom. In a booklet titled THE SERVANT PEOPLE, published by Destiny Publishing Co., P.O. Box 177, Merrimac, MA 01860, we read this regarding Anglo-Saxon responsibility: "Thou, Israel, art my servant; Jacob, whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham, my friend," (Isaiah 41:8).
"In Deuteronomy 7:6, Moses told the children of Israel: "For thou art an holy people un~o the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto Himself, above all people that are on the face of the earth." (How could language be any plainer?) The question which we must ask therefore is this: "Do our beliefs conform with this declaration from God?" Are we prepared to accept the Scriptural identification of this specially selected people, even if the weight of Scriptural and historical proof designates them to be other than the Jews?" (UNQ.)
Let me remind you again. When Moses spoke to these people in the Wilderness of Sinai, there were no Jews among them. The Jew did not come into existence until centuries later.
There are many Bible references to the fact that the Jews lost any status they may have had in the eyes of God. While there has been a tremendous effort, backed with Jewish money, to influence Christians into believing the Jews are the Chosen ones, this does not make it so! Today, Jewish sources, backed by "brainwashed" Christians, are trying to acquit the Jews of the death of God's Son. Their argument is: "You can't judge all Jews for what their leaders did in Jerusalem." Yet if you believe the Bible, as you claim you do, how can you get around the statement found in Matthew 24:25 - "Then answered ALL the people, and said, His blood be upon us and on our children." Their cry still echoes down through the corridors of history to this very day: "We will not have this man to rule over us; WE HAVE NO KING BUT CAESAR! Crucify Him! Crucify Him!"
In view of the Divine pronouncement, how can anyone who loves God, hold to the untenable position that the Jews are the Chosen of God? Jesus passed judgment on them in Matthew 23:38, when He said: "Behold your house is left unto you desolate ... The kingdom shall BE TAKEN FROM YOU, and GIVEN UNTO A NATION (Nothem now, not a CHURCH, but a NATION,) bringing forth the fruits thereof," (Matthew 21:43).
The Jews in their arrogance want to be ISRAEL who is entitled to the Land of Palestine. This was the basis for Menachem Begin's aggression and those people in Christendom, who back these "psuedo-Jews" will one day soon, experience extreme shock when they discover how they have been deceived. Can you visualize men like Jerry Falwell and Jimmy Swaggart, as they are forced to admit they have been "deceived by the anti-Christs."
We have seen how God chose Abraham and his seed as a "people set apart for a special purpose." So Israel, MUST be a nation dedicated to doing God's will, if she is to be blessed.
If the Scriptural truth is ever accepted, which proves that the Anglo-Saxon and related people are the true Israel, then our people will be shocked into seeing their responsibility before God. Today, very few Christians realize what this responsibility is. It goes far beyond knocking on doors and speaking to someone about their soul's salvation. Most Christians in our Judeo-Christianized churches are content to "slip into the kingdom by the skin of their teeth," or as Paul said "saved, yet so as by fire" (1 Cor. 3:15). These might be encouraged to become "watchmen on the walls of Israel," warning their fellow men in accordance to Ezekiel 33:7, if they knew who they were.
We white people in America have a national responsibility before God. The words of Ezekiel 33:10, 11 were written especially as a warning to us. ''. . . If our transgressions and our sins (disobedience to God's law, see 1 John 3:4) be upon us, and we pine away in them (in God's name what do you think is happening to America today?) how should we live? Say unto them (Israel-America), as I live, saith the Lord, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways: for why will ye die, 0 house of Israel (America)?"
Because we are His people and have maneuvered ourselves in-to a potentially dangerous situation by disregarding His law, He says we shall suffer, until the "rebels" (those who refuse to obey) are purged from our midst. Maybe we should start our house cleaning in Congress and the pulpits of America, beginning first with the house of God.
THE PROMISED SEED, THE ONE SEED OF ABRAHAM, WAS JESUS CHRIST, THE ANOINTED ONE!1 - Everything is in Him; everything depends on Him -"And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. (Greek "sunistemi" meaning: "are held together.") (Col. 1:17). Even the atoms are held together by the power of our mighty King, Jesus the Creator, (see John 1:3).
2 - He is the blessing of God to all Nations and all families of the earth. (see Gen. 3:15; 12:3; 18:18).
3 - He is the REDEEMER OF ISRAEL, (Luke 2:30-32. HE IS THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD (John 4:42; 1 John 4:14; John 3:17).
4 - Without Him, the Chosen People have no blessings nor have they anything of blessing to offer to other nations.
5 - The ONE SEED, Christ, having come of the family of Abraham, can now be a blessing to all mankind.
ESAU AND JACOB
AND THE SPURNED BIRTHRIGHT!
As you read the Bible account given in Genesis 25:19-34, you will notice that the struggle between the two sons of Isaac, Jacob and Esau, began before they were born. Quoting from the Ferrer-Fenton translation from the original Hebrew, we read: "and the children struggled together in her breast and she consequently said: 'Why does this happen to me?' so went to enquire of the Everlasting. And the Lord said to her, 'Two nations are in your breast, and two peoples shall proceed from your womb, and one people shall be stronger than the other people, and the elder shall serve the younger."
When the twin boys were born, the elder came out red, all over like a hairy garment; and they called his name Esau. When the second child was born, he had hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob," (Gen. 25:25, 26).
(Could this incident have any connection with Genesis 3:15, do you suppose, where God's promise was made that the seed of the woman should bruise the heel of God's enemy?)
Under normal circumstances in Hebrew custom, the first born would inherit the Covenant Promises. But Esau grew up to become a man who was primarily interested in "doing his own thing," which in this case was hunting and feeding his belly, or as the Yiddish say: "Getting while the getting is good." He believed that: "You only go around once in life, so live with gusto!" He thought so little of the promises of God, in fact he despised them - that he sold them to his brother Jacob for a bowl of "red beans and rice," one day when he was hungry (see Gen. 25:29-34). Because of his color, he had been nicknamed "Edom" which in Hebrew means ''red." He was not only red on the outside, he also had a red heart. He was a "rebel," a "left winger", one who rebelled against the wishes of his father and mother and his God. The immediate satisfaction of his bodily needs meant more to Esau than any promises God had made for the future. He could not see "beyond the end of his nose." How many Christians do you know who are like Esau? Our churches are full of them. They use the excuse for disobeying God, by saying: "Christ did away with the law when He died on Calvary." They live like the devil, while they claim to be children of God. They are "Alka-Seltzer" Christians who come to church and "fizz" for a hour on Sunday, while the rest of the week you cannot tell them apart from the world.
Sometimes we call these folks "nominal Christians. It's no wonder the old Ship of State is in trouble with folks like this at the helm.
In spite of the objections of his parents, Esau deliberately broke God's Law and married "outside the blood line." In fact, he married two Canaanite women, just to spite his parents, (see Gen. 26:34, 35). "And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Been the Hittite, and Bashemath, the daughter of Elon the Hittite: which were a grief of mind unto Isaac and Rebekah." Later in a mis-directed effort to appease his parents, he married a daughter of Ishmael, Abraham's son. (Gen. 28:8, 9).
The descendants of Esau became known as "Edom," "Edomites," "Seir or Mt. Seir", the latter two being names of the region where they lived. The immediate descendants of this "rebel son" are listed in Genesis 36. "Amalek" was a grandson of Esau and became the father of Israel's most vicious enemy, the Amlekites, (see Exodus 17:8-16; Numbers 24:20; Deut. 25:17-19; 1 Samuel 15L:2-33). All the descendants of Esau, were forbidden by Hebrew law from becoming citizens of the Israel nation until the third generation, (see Deut. 23:7, 8 and the book of Obadiah).
When Esau sold his birthright to his brother Jacob, with it went the Title Deeds of the Promised Land. From later events, it becomes evident that the Amlekites did not honor their father Esau's agreement and now lay claim to the land as theirs. According to the Jewish Encyclopedia, they are part of Jewry and many Amlekites became Jews by adopting the Babylonian Talmudic religion of Judaism. They are now part of the "pseudo-Jews" who hold Israel under the name of ISRAELI. They are descendants of the same men Jesus tangled with in John 8:33, when the Jewish Talmudic leaders told Him "We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man . . ." This in itself was a clear, self-pronounced fact that they could not be Israelites, since Israel had been in bondage in Egypt, as any Sunday School child knows. Why then do our pastor's persist in calling these enemies of Christ the Chosen People?
