OF TRUE ISRAEL
Part 3 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
In Gen. 27:41, 42, we see where Esau hated his brother because of his own stupidity and threatened to kill him. As a result, Jacob spent twenty years in exile (see Gen. 28-33). Chapter 29 records Jacob's unusual vision of a ladder reaching into heaven with angels ascending and descending. From the wording of verse 11 it is quite possible that the stone Jacob used for a pillow, was one which had been discarded by builders in the area. He called the place Beth-el, which in the Hebrew language means "the house of God." There the Covenant which God had made with Abraham, was re-confirmed with his grandson.
While in this exile, Jacob married four wives, who bore him 11 sons. The youngest of them by Rachel, who was his "beloved wife."Later after his conversion, his name was changed to Israel" and from the "Usurper Jacob," he became "Israel, a Prince with God", (see Gen. 32:28).
During Jacob's conversion experience, which is recorded in Genesis 32, he became a new man and went into partnership with God. This experience is described in the New Testament in 2 Cor. 5:17 "Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away, behold all things are become new." This is what happened to Jacob, from a cheat and a liar, he became "Israel", through whom all the nations of the world would be blessed and God reconfirmed this in Gen. 35:10. Jacob's descendents were to work together with God for the blessing of "all families" of the earth, and for the final restoration of this world which had been ruined by Satan's rebellion against God.
Jacob was not an Israelite - he was the father of the Israelites - and HE WAS MOST DEFINITELY NOT A JEW! The twelve sons of Jacob, became the fathers of the twelve tribes (nations) of Israel and NONE OF THESE WERE JEWS! In fact there were no Jews until after the kingdom had been broken up, and a remnant of that broken kingdom became known as JEWS, which in Hebrew is YEHUDIM, meaning "a remnant of Judah!"
The "seven times" punishment of Israel (2520 years), is now about to come to a close and the Edomites who now rule in Palestine and the rest of the world, having control over the world's economic system and who are now masquerading as "true-Israel", will be destroyed, (see Luke 19:12-27, noting especially verse 27), then read Malachi 1:2-4: "I have loved you (Israel), saith the Lord. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the Lord, yet I loved Jacob and I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste
". . . Whereas Edom saith, We are impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places: thus saith the Lord of hosts, they (the Jews/Edomites) shall build, but I will throw down; and they (Israel) shall call them (the Jews), the border of wickedness, and, THE PEOPLE AGAINST WHOM THE LORD HATH INDIGNATION (anger) FOREVER." (Emphasis mine.) These are the people our pastors call God's Chosen. The day is coming soon, when we will see the destruction of these evil people in Palestine and God will fight against them, not for them, as we have been taught in our churches.
EGYPT - THE EXODUS -
THE 13th TRIBE!
Reuben, the firstborn of Jacob's twelve sons was deprived of the birthright because of his wickedness, (see Gen. 35:22). Joseph, who was the youngest, being somewhat spoiled and also somewhat of a "tattletale", and also being close to Bilhah's sons (Gen. 37:2) went to his father with the story of Reuben's sin. The first indication that the birthright had passed from Reuben to Joseph is found in Gen. 37:3, where Jacob presented his younger son with a coat of many colors. Joseph was evidently somewhat of a "brat" at this time and loved to "lord it over his older brothers," as his father's favorite son. This did not make for a good family relationship, but evidently Israel in his old age, and doting on Joseph, could or would not see this. This of course caused hard feelings in Joseph's brothers, which led them to sell him into Egyptian slavery, (see Gen. 37:19-28).
In Gen. 49:8-12, we find that the "sceptre of Power," the "Divine Right of Kings, or Rulership" was given to Judah. This was the tribe through which Christ would later be born. This promise to Judah was later re-affirmed in 2 Samuel 7:16, where David was told by the Prophet Nathan, after he had received a special revelation from Cod (see 2 Samuel 7:4, 5). In verse 10-17, we read about the message Cod gave to the king. In verse 10 we see where he is promised a new place which will be given to Israel, where she will be planted sometime in the future, and from which she would never move. We can tell from the wording of these verses that this was to take place sometime in the future, in a place other than Old Palestine. Then as a capstone of this promise, God told David: "And I will establish the throne of his (David's) kingdom forever." (vs. 13), "and thine (David's) house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established forever." (vs. 16).
The lines of rulership were never to depart from David until Christ, the Greater Son of David's line, was to come and set up His earthly kingdom, of which there would be no end. (See Luke 1:30-33). In verse 31-33 God told the Virgin Mary, through an angel: "And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of his father David: And He shall reign over the house of Jacob (Israel) for ever; and of His kingdom there shall be no end." MARANATHA!
The kings and princes which ruled over Israel from that time on have always come from the Tribe of Judah. Today, Christ is the spiritual head of this kingdom; when He returns again, He will be the King in His bodily form.
When Jacob/Israel gave his death-bed blessing, Judah and Joseph were selected for special responsibilities (see Gen. 49). Here we see the beginning of the division between the Israel people into "the two families which the Lord hath chosen," (Jeremiah 33:24). The House of Israel and the House of Judah. Psalm 114:2 explains it in this way: "Judah was His (God's) sanctuary, and Israel His dominion." (IT IS INTERESTING TO NOTE, THAT NEITHER OF THESE TWO FAMILIES WERE EVER JEWS.)
There were 69 Israelites, besides Jacob's sons and their wives, who went into Egypt during the Great Famine of Gen. 46:26, 27. In Acts 7:14, during Stephen's magnificant defense before the Jewish Sanhedrin, he mentioned 75 people as going into Egypt. This in no way is a contradiction, since Joseph's wives and sons were included in this number. These Israelites were in Egypt for 430 years (Exodus 12:40, 41). During this period they had an extraordinary growth, to the point where they began to bother the new Pharaoh, which the Bible says did not remember Joseph (see Exodus 1).
During the first fifteen chapters of Exodus, we have the long drawn out account of the struggle with Pharaoh, in which ten judgments were executed on the Egyptians and in which thirteen miracles were performed, which ultimately resulted in the Israelites being released from economic bondage.
Many scholars estimate that Israel numbered at least 3-million when they left Egypt, since Exodus 12:37 says, "there were about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, besides children and a mixed multitude went up also with them . . ." (This mixed multitude was evidently made up of foreign servants and possibly some Egyptians who had been converted to Hebrewism.) Fourteen months later, in Numbers 1:45, 46, we find a census numbered 603,550 fighting men above the age of twenty. (The Levites were not included in this census - Number 1:47).
Such a miracle of growth had never before been recorded - from 70 - to over three million. But we have a similar record in this end of the age, of these same people. In 1800 AD according to the most reliable reports, there were about 16-million Anglo-Saxons in America, in a little over 150 years, they had increased to over 175-million. You will remember, I'm sure, that God had promised Abraham, that his descendents would be fruitful and multiply until they figuratively became like the "sands of the sea," (Gen. 13:16; 15:5; 22:17; 26:4; 28:14). The people we now know as Jews have never had a population explosion such as this and have never numbered more than 18-million, world wide. Today, they are barely holding their own in their birthrate. For the most part, the Jews of today are a motley crowd, made up of "black Jews," "Asiatic Jews," and very few of these are Semites.
According to sources such as the Jewish Encyclopedia and Jewish writers such as Arthur Koestler, in his book THE THIRTEENTH TRIBE, and Jewish author Alfred Lilienthal, in his monumental THE ZIONIST CONNECTION, over 90% of world Jcwry are of Khazar extraction. (Turco-Mongolian in blood), which means that their forefathers never set foot on Palestinian soil. Every major leader of the Israelis since 1948, has been of the Khazar extraction, known as ASHKENAZI Jews. It is to this mongrel crowd, that our pastors pay homage, when they call them "God's Chosen."
The 13th miracle performed in Egypt was the crossing of the Red Sea. It is interesting to note that the surface of the sea floor in this area has a crust over it. To break through this crust means to become "mired down" in the quicksand underneath. Some liberal Bible scholars argue that this crossing was not a miracle, and that the Israelites crossed in shallow water, in an area known as the Sea of Reeds, where the wind has been known to blow the water to one side. But the interesting question is, if the water was only ankle deep, as these skeptics maintain, how did Pharaoh and his horses and riders, drown in ankle deep water?
The Bible account says that the Egyptians were plagued by the Lord who "took off their chariot wheel, that they drave heavily," (Exodus 14:25). It is evident from this account, that the sea bottom held up the weight of people and their animals, but collapsed under the superior weight of animals, men and chariots. Then in verse 27, we see where God allowed the waters, which were piled up as a wall on either side of the Israelites, to come back and drown the Egyptians. Recently I had a man write to me, who tried to explain that God froze the waters of the Red Sea so that Pharaoh thought it was dry land. This I am inclined to seriously doubt. I like the Bible story better, because it makes more sense.
A number of years ago, I had an interesting debate with a Baptist theologian from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in New Orleans, Louisiana. He claimed that this miracle was nothing but "another Hebrew fairy tale." He said that the Israelites had merely crossed at a shallow place in the sea. I asked him whether he had ever been to that area and he admitted he had not. Well, I have been from the north to the south of the Red Sea at least six times, and I never saw a place where the water was less than 40 feet deep in the main channel. I then asked this Bible skeptic if he had ever been to visit the Museum of Egyptology in Cairo, which he admitted he had not. There is an interesting room there, which contains the remains of Egypt's pharaohs. There is only one missing and the plaque beside his name is dated 1491 BC and the plaque says in essence: "presumed lost in the battle of the Red Sea." So God's Word is vindicated, in spite of every effort of men to destroy it.
The twelve sons of Jacob/Israel, formed the nucleus of the 12 tribes. The two sons of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseb, became the fathers of the Tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh, inheriting Joseph's portion. They were literally adopted by Jacob/Israel (see Gen. 48:16). These two tribes became known as the House of Joseph. (There was no Joseph tribe as such.) So in reality, Israel ended with 13 tribes.
After the Exodus, God commanded that the Levites were not to be numbered with the other tribes, so the number was brought back to twelve. (The Levites were to be special servants of Israel, providing the priests, teachers and civil services of the nation.)
THE TRAINING OF ISRAEL
From the time of the exodus from Egypt, to their entrance into Caanan, Israel was put through a "testing period." The Lord was preparing them to become seasoned instruments in His hand, for the blessing of all nations. These testings were evidently for the purpose of strengthening them in patience, forbearance, and the knowledge that God was interested in their well-being and would provide for them, subject to certain conditions which they would have to meet. I will not go into detail concerning these trials, but merely note the major ones:
1 - THE WATERS OF MARAH (Exodus 15:23-26). Where the bitter waters were made sweet.
2- THE MANNA AND THE QUAILS. (Exodus 16), where God provided temporary meat and manna for Israel for 40 years.
3 - THE SABBATH TEST. (Exodus 16:23-31). Where the Israelites learned that they MUST take God's word literally.
4 - THE ROCK AT HOREB. (Exodus 17:1-7). Where God provided water for the Israelite multitude. There is no evidence that this rock was a cliff, or a lone rock standing in the desert. I believe, very possibly, although I have no evidence, that this rock was the "Stone of Israel," the pillow which Jacob had anointed at Bethel and which we know Israel carried with them on this wilderness journey. The Hebrew word for rock, "tsur," as used here, does not indicate a rocky formation on the side bf a mountain, as most pictures depict, but rather an individual stone.
This is the same stone which now resides in Westminster Abbey, in London, England and is kept-under the Coronation chair.
Author E. Raymond Capt., in his extremely interesting study of Bible History of Israel, titled JACOB'S PILLAR, p.6, says: "The veneration of sacred pillars was common in ancient Israel, but nowhere in Scripture has an inanimate object been given such glorious eminence or divinely declared purpose, as that which was bestowed on that 'pillow stone' upon which Jacob rested his head. Jacob was so spiritually impressed that, to memorialize the occasion and the place, he blessed the stone on which his head had rested, sanctified it by anointing it with oil and gave it the name 'Bethel', (God's House). Although he gave the name Bethel to the place, or locality where the stone was set up, he emphatically declared: 'The STONE which I have set up as a pillar, IS GOD'S HOUSE.' " (Emphasis mine.)
He went on to explain how 22 years later, when Jacob returned to Bethel, he had a vision in which the Lord told him: "I am the God of Bethel," (Gen. 31:13). In this way, God associated Himself not only with the place, but with the stone. It was here that Jacob's name was changed to Israel, a "prince with God," (see Gen. 35:11, 12).
While we have no Scriptural account of Jacob taking this stone with him, reason would have us believe he would not leave such a valuable and sacred monument behind. When Jacob was on his death bed, years later in Egypt, he stopped in the middle of his prophecy, (Gen. 49:24), to say: "from whence is the shepherd, the STONE of Israel?" It is probable that Jacob's descendants took this sacred stone with them on their wilderness travels, as it had means of carrying, with iron hooks, through which carrying poles could be placed.
If you will notice carefully in Exodus 17:6, when God gave instructions to Moses for bringing water from the rock, He did not say: "strike that rock," which would have indicated a particular rock, but He said: "strike THE rock," which indicates a rock with which Moses was already familiar. Once again in Numbers 20:8, we have an instance where God told Moses: ". . . speak ye unto THE ROCK . . ." (Emphasis added.)
There are several instances where the people were commanded to "gather before the rock," (Numbers 20:10). Again in Deut. 8:15, we find reference to "THE ROCK", which indicates a specific rock. The Biblical account indicates that the same "rock" was struck by Moses at both Rephidim and Kodesh, yet these geographical areas are miles apart.
Jacob's Stone, was I believe, a type of Christ and the "living water" which would flow from Him unto everlasting life (John 4:14). We find Jacob anointing the Rock with oil, which in the Scriptures is symbolic of the Holy Spirit. There is no reference made anywhere in Scriptures to any other stone ever being so anointed.
Listen to the Apostle Paul as he speaks of "the Rock," in 1 Cor. 10:4 - speaking about Israel he said: "they did all drink the same spiritual drink (Ps. 78:15, 16); for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ." (The Greek word for "follow" is "akoloutheo" which means: "to accompany.")
Jacob called the Stone, "the Shepherd of Israel," (Gen. 49:24). Later this Shepherd became manifested in the flesh and John 10:27 says: "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me."
As Israel's Shepherd Rock was literally smitten to bring forth the water of life, so the Spiritual Rock, Christ Jesus, was "smitten on Calvary, "that His people might have eternal life. He became the "water of life," (John 4:10). Can you see the important symbolism in this stone of Jacob?
Israel had to have some means of providing 3-million people and their flocks with water in the desert, for in Numbers 20:17, we find where Moses asked permission of the Edomites to pass through their land and said: ". . . neither will we drink of the water of the wells," the land they crossed was miles long and must have taken days to cross, so they would have needed much water for both people and flocks.
There is a tradition which states that when Solomon's Temple was built, the builders rejected this stone, because it had a crack in it. This is alluded to in both Psalm 118:22, which says: "The stone which the builders rejected is become the head stone of the corner,'' and Acts 4:11, where Peter alluded to it and spiritualizes it to mean Christ.
We do not know for sure, but could this stone have spoken to the people? Stranger things have happened. In Numbers 22:21-35, God caused Balaam's ass to speak. At Kodesh God told Moses: ". . . speak unto the rock before their eyes . . ." could the rock hear? If it could, then why couldn't it also speak? When Jesus road into Jerusalem on that colt, on the first Palm Sunday, He said in Luke 19:40: "I tell you, if these (people) should hold their peace, the very stones would immediately cry out."
Do you think maybe I'm a bit crazy by now? But as I mentioned before, the kings of Israel were crowned by a "pillar," which could have easily have been "Jacob's rock," (2 Chronicles 23:13).
Archeologist E. Raymond Capt. remarks that the Bible says little about this rock, possibly so that people would not make an object of worship out of it, as the crucifix has become to some. But it makes sense to me to believe that this stone went with Israel as there is some indication that it was taken to the British Isles by the Prophet Jeremiah, after the destruction of Jerusalem.
In Micah 2:12, 13, there is reference made to Israelites passing "through the gate." This gate today is a pass through the Causasus Mountains. In ancient writings, it was called the "Pass of Israel." At this time Hosea wrote (3:4): "The children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a sacrifice, and without an image." One marginal reference says: "without a standing pillar, or rock." This brings us to the conclusion that Israel did not have the "rock of Jacob," but that it remained with the remnant of Judah, until the overthrow of King Zedekiah. Irish history says that it was brought to Ireland by Jeremiah.
If you believe God's promises, and I presume that most of you do, then we must search for a king from David's house, since this was the promise made in Genesis 49:10 and later in 1 Kings 9:5. Under Hebrew law, a daughter could inherit as though she were a son, (see Numbers 27:8-11), provided she marry within her own house (Numbers 36.)
Jeremiah and the king's daughters found refuge with a Greek mercenary garrison, which according to secular records was stationed at Tahpanhes in Egypt and is recorded in Jeremiah 43:5-7. It is interesting to note that this ancient fortress, at the modern city of Defreh, is still known in Egypt as the "Palace of the Jew's Daughters."
When Jeremiah prophesied in Jeremiah 44:26, 27, concerning the Israelites who fled to Egypt to escape the Babylonians, he stated that only a small remnant would escape the destruction which would come to Egypt.
We could go on in this interesting study if space were available, but since we will explore it in more detail later on, I will leave "Jacob's Stone, Jeremiah and the king's daughters" in Egypt for now.
5 - THE WAR WITH AMALEK - (Exodus 17:8-16).
It was here that Israel made their first attempt at an organized defense and learned the power of their God through prayer. Here God declared "perpetual warfare against Amalek," which is important for us to note, since Amalek was a branch of Esau-Edom, which is today in modern Jewry. According to God's promise, they were to be finally annihilated. (see Luke 19:27 and Malachi 1:2-4 for comparison.)
6 - The Mosaic Covenant Which Formed God's Kingdom.
The Israelites remained in the vicinity of Mt. Sinai for a little over a year (see Exodus 19:1 and Numbers 10:10, 11) and it was here that God formed them into the nation of Israel, with Himself as their Sovereign. The Mosaic Covenant begins in Exodus 19:3 and is known as a CONDITIONAL COVENANT. Notice especially verse 5, which says: "IF YE OBEY MY VOICE . . . then all the blessings the human heart desires would be poured out on them. But these were conditioned on their obedience to God's Law. It was here, also, that the TEN COMMANDMENTS were given, engraved on tablets of stone by the finger of God Himself, (Deut. 5:22). The ordinances which followed, were to be the ECONOMIC SYSTEM under which Israel and God's Kingdom would operate on this earth. The people accepted this unanimously: "And ALL the peoples answered together, and said, ALL that the lord hath spoken, we will do . . ."
The TEN COMMANDMENTS made up the Divine Constitution of Israel. The Statutes and Judgments were based on the Commandments and were to govern the social life of the nation and apply to both individual and nation.
The Ordinances were the religious laws. Many of these had to do with "blood sacrifices, for the remission of sin," (see the need for this in Hebrews 9:22). These Ordinances were fulfilled when Jesus Christ became the "once and for all time," sacrifice for the sins of His people Israel. Ephesians 2:15 explains it in this manner: "Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of COMMANDMENTS contained in the ORDINANCES; for to make in himself of twain (two) one new man, so making peace." (Emphasis mine.) Then in Colossians 2:14 we read: "blotting out the handwriting of ORDINANCES that were against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross." Did this mean that Christ did away with the Law? Absolutely not. It means He did away with the ORDINANCES of the blood sacrifice. When Paul talked about "nailing them to the Cross," he was speaking in words his readers understood. For in those days, when a man was committed to prison for a crime, his crime, along with his sentence was nailed on the door of his prison cell. When he completed his sentence, the judge wrote across the face of this parchment, called a "libellus," PAID IN FULL, and the man could never be charged for that particular crime again. This is what Jesus Christ did for those who accept Him, He has written across the record of our sin, in His precious blood PAID IN FULL, and according to the promise of God Himself, they will be remembered against us no more. HALLELU'YAH!
When God, the Righteous Judge, looks at weak, sometimes sinful Jack Mohr, He does not see my sins, but the blood of His Son, Jesus Christ, which covers them, just as the Israelites were saved from the visit of the death angel in Egypt (Exodus 11,12, which was a type of Christ's death. In verse 23 God told the Israelites: ". . . when he (the death angel) seeth the blood upon the lintel (top of the door), and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your homes to smite you." I would imagine, there might have been a few Israelites who thought: "Just another stupid regulation," and when they left the blood off their door, the death angel visited them too.
Here is something most important to remember and something which is overlooked by a vast majority of Christendom in these days of spiritual apostasy. The fulfilling of the Blood Sacrifice, in no way effected the necessity of obedience to the Social Laws given to the nation . . . the Law of God still stands, in spite of what puny men called pastors may say, when they preach that Christ did away with the Law on Calvary. Christian-Israel-America and the other Israel nations, are suffering today the penalties declared in Deut. 28, for those who refuse to obey God's Law.
Israel was to set up a Theocratic State. This term comes from two Greek words ''Theos,'' meaning ''God,'' and ''kratos,'' meaning "power." God was to be the Supreme Power in this State. America was set up as such a State. She was never set up with the idea of "plurality" in mind. In our Pledge of Allegiance we say: "One nation, under God!" America was set up from the beginning to be a Christian nation, obeying God's laws. She was not set up to give religious freedom to the Jews, or Moslems, or Buddhists. The founding documents of each of our original 13 Colonies, prove this and the U.S. Supreme Court has declared it to be so!
Supreme Court Justice David J. Brewer, who served from 1890-1910, wrote a lengthy opinion establishing the legal logic that America was indeed a Christian nation. Among many other points mentioned, he said: "This Republic (notice now, a "Republic" not a "Democracy" as we are told today) is classified among the Christian nations of the world. It was formally declared by the Supreme Court of the United States in a unanimous opinion, February 29, 1982 in the case of Holy Trinity Church vs the U.S., 143, U.S. 471.
". . . we constantly speak of this Republic as a Christian nation - in fact, as the leading Christian nation. This popular use of the term has significance. It is not a mere creation of the imagination . . . It's use has had from the early settlements on our shores and still has an official foundation. It is only about three centuries since the beginning of civilized life within the limits of the United States and those beginnings were in a marked and marvelous degree identified with Christianity.
". . . the Constitution of 1776 required every officeholder to make the following declaration: 'I __________________ do profess faith in God, the Father, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, and in the Holy Ghost, One God, blessed forevermore! and I do acknowledge the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be given by Divine Inspiration. (There were no Jewish or atheist politicians running this country then. No wonder God blessed us in the early days - AUTHOR).
"The New Hampshire Constitution of 1784 and 1792, required that senators and representatives should be Protestant by religion and this provision remained in effect until 1877.
"The Constitution of North Carolina of 1776, provided that in order to be an office holder, a man MUST be a Christian who believed in the fundamentals of the faith (not necessarily a "fundamentalist.") We could go on and on, through Maryland, Mississippi, Arkansas, and many others.
"Sunday was recognized universally as a day of worship. This was even noted in Congress, where the term 'Sunday excepted' is found in the United States Government and 36 states. (Remember, this was what America stood for, seventy years ago, before the alien anti-Christs of Judaism got their feet in the door -AUTHOR.)
"The term God, referring to a Supreme Being is used in constitution, statute and instrument. We find in the preamble the word, 'grateful to Almighty God!' It is again declared in official oaths: 'So help me, God!' While separation of Church and State is often affirmed, nowhere do we find a repudiation of Christianity . .
Justice Brewer then goes on to point out how our laws and customs are based on the Law of Moses, (the Hebrew, not a Jew - AUTHOR), and the teachings of Jesus Christ; and how the Bible is appealed to as the guide of life in questions of morality. He concludes: "I have said enough to show that Christianity came to this country with the first colonists; has been powerfully identified with its rapid development, colonial and national, and today, exists as a mighty factor in the life of the Republic." (UNQ.) It was shortly before this, that a great French Political Philosopher, Alexis de Tocqueville, came to America to search for the reason why America had had such a phenomenal rise to greatness. On the conclusion of his visit, he wrote to an American friend, words to this effect. "America is great because she is good; and when she ceases to be good, she will cease to be great." We could honestly paraphrase this by saying: "America was great as long as she followed God's laws and when she ceases to obey God's law, she will cease to be great." Those of you who read these words, and who can look back on the past fifty years of America's decline, can see the truth in this statement.
How far has the mighty fallen since those days in the eighteenth century? Why? Because we have forgotten who we were and why we were here and in so doing, we have allowed "heathen, anti-Christ" ideologies to have "free reign" in America, under the Humanist idea of "pluralism." Under the guise of "tolerance," we are committing national suicide.
THE PALESTINIAN COVENANT AND
SEVEN TIMES OF ISRAEL'S
The Palestinian Covenant was made with Israel just before they entered the Promised Land. It was strictly CONDITIONAL COVENANT, where Israel's victory depended on their obedience to the "if" and "but" clauses of the agreement. To understand it, you will need to carefully study Deut. 30:1-10; Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28:29, 30. This Covenant lays down the conditions under which Israel was to remain in control of the land they were to occupy. If the people would obey God, and follow His law, they would be blessed with permanent peace, good health, happiness, social security and prosperity beyond their fondest dreams. They would be free from all insecurity; from war; from sickness; from crime; from poverty and from alien control. The very things which are destroying the Israel nations of Christendom in the Twentieth Century.But, if Israel disobeyed God, and refused to follow His law, then there was to be "subjugation to the enemy, slavery, humiliation and death." From being the "head nation," they would become the "tail," vs. 44. They would be defeated in war by nations much smaller than themselves (vs. 25). Aliens would "eat up" the fruits of their labor (vs. 33) and finally they would "serve thine enemies which the Lord shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thrist, and in nakedness, and in want of all things . . ." Is this what must happen to America before the "seed of Abraham" is willing to wake up and do things God's way? Must our nation be invaded by heathen hordes from Asia or Africa; must our wives and daughters be raped in our streets and our young men and little boys be murdered? Is this what it will take to wake America up to their responsibilities before God? We are much closer to this condition now, than either our "brainwashed" Christian people, or their Judeo-Christian pastors are willing to admit. Already many of the curses of Deuteronomy 28 can be seen, as they take effect in America, yet there is very little effort made to put the Formula for our Survival into effect, 2 Chronicles 7:14, which calls for humbling ourselves, praying, repentance and turning from our wicked, self-willed ways. There is very little repentance seen in America, even among Identity Christians, including her pastors.
Mankind has "free will" today, just as they had in 1451 BC At that time, God told Ancient Israel: "I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live; that thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest obey His voice. . ." The same plea is being made to Twentieth Century Christendom in the "closing out days" of this Twentieth Century. "Choose life or death, Oh America; choose blessings or cursings." The choice is yours! When Ancient Israel disobeyed her God, she became divorced from Him: "And when I (God) saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery, I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorcement; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared n6t, but went and played the harlot also," (Jeremiah 3:8).
For their sin, Israel lost their land. They lost the name of Israel and were to in time, be called by another name (Christian) . . . God, speaking to the rebels in Judah said: (Isaiah 64:15): "Ye shall leave your name for a curse to my chosen (Israel); for the LORD GOD SHALL SLAY THEE (see Luke 19:27) and shall call His servants (Israel) by another name (Christian.)"
The name of Jewry has become a curse to everyone who has been associated with and tried to befriend them. The Apostle Paul spoke of them as those who had killed their own prophets, and persecuted the Christian church and "please not God, but are contrary to all men," (1 Thess. 2:15.)
Israel was to be called after Isaac, rather than Israel (Gen. 21:12; Rom. 9:7.) Could this be why "true Israelites" are known as "ISAAC-sons" or "SAXONS" Today?
Dan Olinger, of Bob Jones University, in his article in FAITH FOR THE FAMILY, which I mentioned previously, scoffs at this idea. He says: "they (Identity) claim that the terms Saxon and 'British' are Biblical; the former an abbreviation of 'Isaac's-sons.' but the word Saxon actually comes from the Germanic 'sahsam' meaning 'sword.' The Saxons were a sword wielding tribe." (UNQ.) Seems like a wea~ argument to me, since there were many "sword wielding" tribes in northern Europe.
Israel in her dispersion was to undergo punishment, correction and training through a definite period, but not forever.
Leviticus 26 and Deut. 28:28-30, tells about the "punishment clauses" of this Covenant. We can see them in operation in the nations of Christendom today.
Then, GLORIOUS DAY, there will come a day of National conversion, of restoratiQn and national prosperity, when our Lord returns to take over control of this world as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Some say that America is doomed; that she is the Mystery Babylon of the Bible and that God will destroy her, because she has led the world into idolatry. I do not believe this is true. I still believe that God's promise in 2 Chronicles 7:14 is for our Israel people today, if we will listen to and act on it. This day of our King's return is spoken of in Luke 21:28, where Jesus, speaking to His disciples regarding the things which would happen before His return, says that when we see the wars, famines, earthquakes, pestilences, etc., that overtake the earth; when we see men's hearts failing them for fear of what is happening, then we are told: "When these things begin to come to pass, look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh!" HALLELU''YAH!
Today we see this fear prevalent in our "brainwashed" Israel people. Suicides and heart failures are two of the greatest killers in America today, both of them often brought on through fear. It is the number one killer among college students and the psychologists and psychiatrists, who are supposed to tell us what's wrong, are killing themselves off through suicide, four times faster than the rest of us "nuts." Why? Because they are afraid too and do not have the answer. But we do! We know that redemption is "just over the horizon," so we trust God and look for His return.
God told His Israel people in Leviticus 26:18, that He would punish them seven times for their sins. The explanation for this period of punishment can be found by a careful study in the books of Daniel and Revelation. We find that the "time, and times, and the dividing of times," mentioned in Daniel 7:25; 12:7; Rev. 12:14; 11:2; 13:5; 11:3 and 12:6 is 42 months of thirty days, or a total of 1260 days. Twice that is 2520 days.
In Numbers 14:34 and Ezekiel 4:6, in connection with the punishment of Israel and the House of Judah, God states: "I will appoint thee each day as a year." Therefore 2520 days, becomes 2520 years in God's calendar of the ages. If you try and work out the "seven times" of punishment period on a "day to day" basis, you will be doomed to disappointment.
The "times of the Gentiles," referred to by Jesus in Luke 21:24, is of the same duration and represents the same thing today, this should have been translated "times of the nations," for this is what the Greek word, translated "gentiles," really means. During the period of Israel's punishment and training, God gave the Charter of World Dominion into the hands of the Babylonians and a succession of heathen nations headed by Nebuchadnezzar's Babylonian Empire, followed by Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome and finally the smaller kingdoms represented by the toes of Daniel's image in Daniel 2. At the end of this 2520 year period, these empires would collapse and Israel, not the Jews, will be restored to world power and position.about.
