CRUSADE FOR CHRIST AND COUNTRY
Lt. Col. Jack Mohr, AUS Ret.
(The following article, with some editorial license on the part of Col. Mohr, was written by Mr. W. Finlay and appeared in the October issue of the Bulletin LOOK UP, edited by the COVENANT FELLOWSHIP, G.P.O. 3059, Sydney, N.S.W. Australia 2001. The message which is especially important to Canada and the United States, is of such necessity that it needs to be dispensed far and wide.)
* * * * * * *"In 1 John 2:15 -17, we read these words: "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man (woman) love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh (innate desire for material things), the lust of the eye, and the pride of life is not of the Father, but is of the world and the world passeth away, and the lust thereof; but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever".
Millions of people in Canada and the United States recently watched the football extravaganza called the Super Bowl of professional football. This year it was played in Miami, Florida. The result of the game between the San Francisco 49ers, and the San Diego Chargers is of little importance. But the half-time entertainment showed the depths of sin and degradation into which this once Christian nation has fallen.
Before a huge replica of a grinning heathen idol, half naked priestesses twisted and writhed to Satanic African jungle music, while half-naked Black men joined in their orgiastic, God blaspheming rites, in a display that must have outdone anything ever seen m heathen Babylon or ancient Rome. It was viewed by millions who were glued to their TV sets, including millions of so-called Christians. I have not seen a single word of disgust exhibited by the Christian community. Why has crime, and evil become the "Modus Operandi" in the Israel nations of Canada and the United States. Here is Brother Findlay's scriptural answer:
Between the years 1918 and 1939, a frightful machinery was set in motion, which resulted in the spiritual and moral ruin of Anglo-Saxondom and the devastation of the civilization which this company of nations distributed around the world. (It did not come un-announced, for the anti-Christ enemy has openly proclaimed his intentions to destroy White Christian civilization and the good it has brought to mankind - Mohr).
This was the era when the purveyors of destruction commenced the erosion of historical principles and deprived the Anglo-Saxon peoples of content and meaning among the nations of the world.
That this was a political fact and not philosophical speculation was borne out by Winston Churchill on Feb. 26,1930, in an address before the British Navy league. He summed up the political situation of the Anglo-Saxon nations by saying:"During the last few years, a sense of powerlessness must have come across those who have taken part in the triumphant exertions which the British Empire has made in the present century. Some spring seems to have snapped in the national consciousness. There is a readiness to cast away all that has been won by measureless sacrifices and achievements. We seem to be the only great nation which does not speak up for itself, which has lost its confidence in their missions, which is ready to resign their hard won rights." (UNQ.)Sixty years later, the same situation obtains, although on a much broader tapestry, as it now embraces all the company of Anglo-Saxon nations. (The United States and Canada in particular - Mohr). The "powerlessness," the spirit of surrender, and the "inferiority complex" has intensified with the result that the Western Christian nations are now writhing in their death-throes and are apparently resigned to oblivion.
Very few voices are raised in protest, and these are usually drowned out by the clamor of the vociferous minority, who have already surrendered to Satan and who want the remainder of God's "true Israel", to do the same. To the cacophony within the political sphere is added the platitudinal "explanations" of the many "false prophets" of whom the Lord Jesus Christ warned in His Olivet Discourse, (Matt. 24:24), and who advocate and encourage national dissolution under the religious pretext that "...ye are all one in Jesus Christ". From platform and pulpit we are bombarded with the parrot-cry: "All men are created equal!" and the spring in the "national consciousness" has indeed snapped creating yet another tragedy in world history.
In the PROTOCOLS OF THE LEARNED ELDER'S OF ZION, PROTOCOL VIII states: "In order to annihilate the institutions of the goyim (Yiddish for "non-Jew" animal) before Its time, we have touched with craft and have taken hold of the ends of the springs which move their mechanisms. These springs lay in a strict, but just sense of order. We have replaced them with the chaotic license of liberalism. We got our hands into the administration of their law; into the conduct of their elections; into their press; into the liberty of the person, but principally into their education and training, as being the cornerstones of a free existence". Many of you "brainwash" Folks are going to say: "But those Protocols are a forgery!" Possibly! Yet the Zionist enemy have been following this plan like a "blueprint for almost 100 years".
IT ALL HAPPENED BEFORE!
If one takes time to examine objectively the history of Anglo-Saxondom, from the period of its rise to that of Its fall, it will be noted that, with a few minor differences, It follows that of ancient Greece. History records that the Grecian Empire also dissolved, when the "springs of it's national consciousness snapped". Patriotism was displaced by a flood of Oriental religions, such as are now inundating America. These emphasized individual eternalism, in contrast to temporary nationalism. The Greeks became so preoccupied with "doctrines" that they lost touch with reality, and in the consequence, the prosperity and even the existence of the State sank into insignificance. There is an old truism which should be noted here: "He who refuses to learn from the mistakes of history, is bound to repeat them".
Among the nations of Anglo-Saxondom today. The same principle obtains and it would be a blind person Indeed who would deny that the general attitudes of individuals within the modern development of God's Witness Nation Israel (not the Jews - Mohr) is: "It doesn't matter who you are or where you came from, or what you do. We are all children of God".
The same response is evoked when one endeavors to call to the attention of Anglo-Saxondom the fact of their true identity with the Israel of the Old Testament and the responsibility which attends such identification (see 1 Peter 2:9 -Mohr).
Disdaining to equate the misery and suffering of the nations of the world with Israel's refusal to accept it's identity and responsibility, under the opiate of religious delusions, many true Israelites turn their eyes heavenward and point to the nebulous galaxies as they piously proclaim: "My citizenship is there - not here!" It is truly remarkable how detached from reality one can become when one allows religious speculation to take preference over the scriptures.
THE LOVE OF THE "WORLD SYSTEM"!
The phrase "religious speculation", because it has been used in the sensitive area where many concentrate the rum total of their Christian expectations, may cause offense to many, which is certainly not intended.
It should be recalled that the Lord Jesus Christ exhorted His followers to "search the scriptures" - an exercise which is designed to strip away all speculation - however pleasing and acceptable these may be - and leave the searcher with that priceless commodity - called TRUTH!
A superficial reading of the scripture which prefaces this message will no doubt support the contention of the "heavenly citizenship" of the believer. However, if we obey the voice of the Lord and search beneath the English translation to the Greek text, we will find that the superficial reading is not only misleading, but it engenders a spirit which is in opposition to the whole body of revealed scripture.
(When I was a boy, we used to sing a spirited song in Sunday school that went something like this:
"I am a stranger here, within a foreign land;
My home is far away, upon a golden strand.
Ambassador to be, to realms beyond the sea;
"I'm here on business for my King".
While this sounds exciting and possible, it is useless speculation, for the scripture does not teach this - Mohr).
It should be noted that the word WORLD appears six times in these three verses, I John 2:15-17. The general tenor appears to suggest that the world is an evil place and anything associated with the world should be rejected. However, the English word WORLD, appears 239 times in the New Testament and is translated from three different Greek words, each with its own peculiar and different meaning.
If the Greek text intended to engender distaste for the terrestrial globe we call the world, peopled and governed by people, the word used would have been UIKOUMENE. The simple expedience of using a Concordance during Bible study would have cleared this up. (Instead most church goers believe what their pastor says it means, without ever bothering to check for themselves - Mohr).
Using Strong's Concordance, for instance, you will find that the Greek word used for WORLD in 1 John 2 is KOSMOS. This word is invariably used to convey the meaning of a "system", or a "particular order of life". (See Liddell and Scots GREEK - ENGLISH LEXICON). This "system" is separate and distinct from the globe on which we live.
The system under which people lived when John wrote his Epistle was that of Imperial Rome. A Rome which was then spreading its degeneracy throughout the known world and forcing subservience to it. It is small wonder that John was exhorting God's people to turn away from that "system". The Father of Israel (God) said in Jer. 31:9 - "For I am a father to Israel and Ephraim His first born". He had endowed His people with a "system" at Sinai, which would never pass away. This is the system Christians should be following today.
This of course leads us to another of John's writings - that of Revelation, given to him by God when he was in exile on the Isle of Patmos. Here again a superficial reading will create a wrong impression, and is often used to soften God's people into an acceptance of universalism. It says: "And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, the kingdoms of thin WORLD are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign forever and ever". (Rev. 11:15, KJV)
A literal translation of the Greek text however, shatters any allusion to universalism ("Universalism" being the Satanic doctrine that all souls will eventually be saved, regardless of what you do with Jesus Christ - Mohr).
The sooner God's people get their heads out of the clouds and come to grips with the reality and inevitability of His purpose, the sooner they will come to know the answer to our problems and have peace.
CHRIST'S TEACHING VS. THAT OF MAN!
Notwithstanding the Lord's exhortation to "search the scriptures", there are still many in Anglo-Saxondom (the majority, I'm sure - Mohr) who, despite overwhelming evidence pointing to their identity with Biblical Israel, continue to conform to what they would like it to be. For instance, one constantly hears: "It is Christian to turn the other cheek, particularly when the anti-God, anti-Christ powers indulge in activity which is designed to eliminate the efficacy of the God-centered historical Anglo-Saxon spirit". One is constantly exhorted from the pulpit to "love your enemies" - even when they are perverting the truth of God - even if they are making a mockery of the things which we hold sacred and pour abuse on the Name above all Names. (Texts such as Ps. 139:21, 22, which says: "Do not I hate them O Lord that hate Thee? and am not I grieved with those who rise up against thee? I hate them with a perfect hatred; I count them mine enemies". Verses such as this are strictly "verboten" in the Judeo-Christian churches - Mohr).
Also pre-eminent in Christian doctrine is the theme of "grace", which in most Judeo-Christian churches has taken the place of obedience to God's Law, and which, provided any actions considered expedient, become acceptable as Christian conduct. Here we come to grips with the machinery which today is presented as the very spirit of Christianity - or being the express desire of the Lord Jesus Christ. Yet most of this is far from the truth!
Unless one is willing to search the scriptures, it is impossible to ascertain precisely what the Lord Jesus did teach, for the Christ of today, (like the cross of today - Mohr) is not the Christ, or the Cross of the New Testament. The Biblical Jesus who spoke the words of the Father, in agreement with to the prophets of the Old Testament (see Heb. 1:1, 2). "God, who in sundry times and divers manners spoke in times past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, whom He bath appointed heir of all things, by whom He also made the world". (See also John 1:1, 3 KJV).
Jesus did nothing and said nothing which was at variance with the whole body of the Old Testament, (see John 5:1). (Every great sermon preached in the New Testament was preached from an Old Testament text, - Mohr). Yet despite this, the modern false prophets of whom the Lord warned us in His Olivet Discourse (Matt. 24:24), insist on interpreting the Lord Jesus and His words in accordance with the mechanism of destruction, which is aimed at making the Plans and Purposes of God and His people, null and void!
God's Word is being interpreted in the pulpits of Judeo-Christianity in such a way that the very people He came to "redeem" as their "kinsman redeemer", (and these were not the Jews, who He told: "Ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep" - Mohr) are prepared to say: "So what?" to any scripture that places them irrevocably within the framework of His mission.
It would serve a very useful purpose at this stage to focus once again on the scriptural context into which: "the Word that was made flesh", was born. Listen to Gal. 4:4, 5 - "When the fulness of time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the Law, to redeem them that were under the Law," (He was speaking to Israelites here, not Jews -Mohr).
This statement immediately focuses attention on one people. (These were not Jews, since He told thAntin John 5:46 - "If ye had believed Moses, ye would have believed Me; for he wrote of Me". It did not focus attention on the world - Mohr).
There was only one people who were ever under the Law and that was the Covenant people of Israel. (How could this be the Jews, when Jesus accused them in John 8:44 of "being of their father the devil?" We can see that the Jews were not Israelites from their own admission in John 8:33, where they admit that their relationship to Abraham was through Esau/Edom - Mohr).
There were only one people to whom the "fulness of time", had any meaning and they were "true Israel", (see Dan. 9:24, 25).
Against this scriptural truth will be those who quote John 3:16 - "God so loved the WORLD, that He sent His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish but might have everlasting life". Precisely! Recall what we said earlier about the word WORLD? This statement is not in contradiction of a fact which is verified in the 17th verse of this same chapter. The Greek text reads: "For God sent forth His Son, into the KOSMOS (the Israel Order) not that He should judge that order, but that that order might be saved".
This "system" or "order" was the Law-System given to Israel, by God through Moses at Mt. Sinai. It should be noted in John 3:17, that this "Israel order" was not to be judged by the Son - indeed judgment does not enter the picture here for the "Law of God is perfect," (Ps. 19:7). He came to "save, " not "judge" that Israel "order". He said so Himself in Matt. 15:24 "...I am not sent, but (only) to the lost sheep of the house of Israel". (The English word LOST as used here comes from the Greek APPOLUMI, which literally means: "those who were banished for disobedience", which can apply only to Israel, not the Jews - Mohr).
It is small wonder then that the Lord Jesus Christ positively affirmed the continued validity of His Law in Matt. 5:17-19 and He pronounced stern warnings against teachers who instruct His people to abandon the Law, (see vs. 19).
However, the insidious "leaven of the Pharisees" is constantly at work, and it does not hesitate to wrench the Word of the Lord from its proper setting, and take it out of context. This has resulted in the preaching of a "pacifist, social gospel" to the detriment of our people and which should be anathema to all Christians. (In Jer. 23:22 we find words to this effect [paraphrased]: "If the preachers in Israel will preach the whole counsel of God's words, the people will turn from their wicked ways". This has not happened in Christendom, which indicates something terribly wrong with the preaching coming from our church pulpits - Mohr).
Consider for example the so-called Sermon on the Mount. Note that Jesus was speaking privately to His disciples, not to the multitude when He said in Matthew 5:38-42); "Ye have heard it said. An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: but I say unto you, That ye resist not the evil; but whosoever shall smite thee on the right cheek, turn to him the other also," (Matt. 5:38, 39). Here, once again, a superficial reading will provide a wrong impression, which provides for the principle of forgiveness without any recompense for those who have been injured by the evil doer. This is the very antithesis of the Law of God - the Law which Jesus said would last until "heaven and earth pass away", (John 5:17, 18).
We must remember that Jesus had departed from the multitudes and took His disciples with Him into the mountain, (Matt. 5:1). If what He was about to say would have been meant for the multitude, don't you think He would have taught them this? Bet His hearers were not the judges, the magistrates, the priests, or the common people of Israel, bet His disciples, and these were all Israelites. (With the exception of the traitor Judas, who was the only Jew in the group - Mohr).
As it is the Law, and that portion which deals with the "eye for an eye; and the tooth for a tooth" which is brought into question, we need to turn to the Pentateuch am I note the whole chapter which carries this subject and discover who is involved. The context of this subject is found in Exodus 21, which is prefaced by these words:" Now these are the judgments thou (Moses) shall set before (Israel)..." If you will note, 'judgments" were a national law, with the penalty being administered by the state to violators. None of these judgments fell within the scope of individual vengeance, nor was the individual empowered to exact retribution. An illustration of this is found in vs. 22 - "If men strive and hurt a woman with child ... he shall surely be punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay AS THE JUDGES DETERMINE".
This law is very explicit. The husband was not allowed to take personal revenge, or take the Law into his own hands. It provided for a judicial proceeding, presided over by a duly appointed judge. This and Deut. 19:15-21, where judgments and penalties were vested in judges as representatives of the people, not individuals.
There is no contradiction here, although many may look for one, for after He had said that not one smallest punctuation would pass from the Law, He quoted the "eye for an eye" part and then said: "But I say unto you. .
Many take this as Christ's repudiation of the Law which would mean that God contradicts Himself. However, notice, he was not addressing representatives of the judiciary whose duty it was to dispense justice - He was speaking to His disciples, apart from the multitude.
He had selected twelve men for a special commission to the "lost sheep of the house of Israel", knowing that one, Judas, would be a traitor. Here we find individuals who were subject to the "judgments" of the Law, just as their forbearers had been during the Old Testament Dispensation.
The "But I say unto you" part was an individual commission to mercy - an exhortation to "settle out of court", for once the subject was taken before the court, the judge was governed by the law, not by mercy. It was the judge's responsibility to see that justice prevailed. This is the meaning of Matt. 5:25, 26.
From this scripture it becomes obvious that the Lord in no way set at nought the "judgments of the Law," nor did He invalidate the penalties required by the Law which Father God had stipulated as He had no authority to do so.
THE LORDS JESUS CHRIST AND POLITICS!
As mentioned earlier, by removing a text from its context and making it conform to preconceived religious ideas, doctrines are promulgated which deprive God's people from knowing the truth. In like manner, politically oriented false prophets in the pulpits are today preaching "another Jesus".
In many religious circles Jesus Christ is presented as the Great Liberator, working within the working classes and fighting against exploitation by capitalists and racists. Dr. Philip Porter, Secy. Gen. of the World Council of Churches, equates "salvation" with "revolution and its overthrow of racist, capitalist, imperialism".
Actually, who is this Jesus taught by the politically oriented socialist gospelers? The following is a word description taken from what is commonly called "Christian" reading: "Jesus, during His ministry, concerned Himself with a primitive form of populism, socialism and pacifism, which had the effect of gaming the hostility of the substantial, propertied classes, the priests and patriots in general. He drew His followers mainly from the poor, the slaves, and the laboring masses. Being a carpenter by trade, He appreciated the hardships of the masses, and numbered Himself as one of those exploited by private enterprise.
"It was in this context that He formulated a philosophy - the Sermon on the Mount which was never intended to have any relevance in the Old Testament and which was designed to appeal profoundly to the humble, and the working classes. In essence, He comforted whose who suffered from exploitation with promises of equity beyond the grave. He made virtues of the necessities of the weak; He admonished people without hope to take no thought of the morow: people too helpless to resent injury and insult were assured of the dignity of labor and poverty; the meek, the despised, the disinherited, the down-trodden, were in the hereafter, to be the elect and favored of God; the worldly, the ambitious, and the enterprising were to be denied admission into paradise". (UNQ) (What a horrible and blasphemous explanation of Christ's mission to earth - this is indeed "another Jesus" which is being preached by many - Mohr).
Here we see a different Jesus, created from the fertile imagination of one who either willingly or unknowingly is veiling the truth of God and His mission to earth. This mission was national in content and context - a continuation of the Father's plan for World Evangelism.
In the light of the prodigious array of satanic weaponry, brought to bear against Christians, it is small wonder that the Anglo-Saxon people are losing their vision, self-respect and faith! In the light of this tremendous onslaught made against this "company of nations", it is small wonder too, that battered and bruised by physical conflict, and now being hammered by a spiritual one, that the modern development of God's Covenant people are seeking respite in Satanic delusions, as they repudiate their birthright saying "What does it matter if we are Israel?"
In the Communist textbook on PSYCHOPOLITICS, written in 1936 as a blueprint for the destruction of Christian America, we find these words on page 52: "You must recruit every agency in the nation marked for slaughter into a foaming hatred of Christianity. You must suborn district attorneys and judges into an intense belief that Christianity is vicious, bad, insanity, causing, publicly hated and intolerable.
"We have labored in America since the century's turn to bring to nothing any and all Christian influences, and we are succeeding. While we today seem to be kind to Christians, remember we have yet to influence the Christian world to our ends. When we have done this, we will see the end to them everywhere.
"You must work until Christianity is synonymous with insanity. You must work until the officials of city, county and state pounce on Christian groups as public enemies". This is the Satanic, Talmudic agenda of our enemies, the enemies of God, often supported by traitors behind the pulpits of this land. If you can't see this developing, it is became you have deliberately shut your eyes to the truth!
Today Easu/Edom is rubbing his hands in satanic glee as he answers "true Israelites", by saying: "IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER! AS LONG AS YOU ARE SAVED, THAT'S ALL THAT'S IMPORTANT! THIS WORLD IS NOT YOUR HOME, YOU'RE JUST PASSING THROUGH!"
But he has made a fatal mistake! It does matter! It matters to God! It matters that His Israel people among the nations of Christendom are denying His purpose for them - are rejecting their proper relationship with Him and are blaspheming His name among the nations of the world.
Yet in spite of all this. In spite of the denial of our birthright; the denial of our Israel commission, the denial of our status -in spite of all this, the Lord God assures us, that in the "fulness of time:, He will do a work, and will pour out His Holy Spirit on our people, giving them a clean heart and a pure spirit, so that they will walk in His way and do the things He has prescribed in the way He demands. He has said not "You may!" but "You shall!" God will do this despite all efforts by the enemy to thwart His purposes, in spite of what people say, think, or do!
Is it not time for Anglo-Saxondom to get foursquare behind God's Word and purpose? Isn't it time you accept this TRUTH, and then go on to apply the only FORMULA FOR SURVIVAL that will work? (2 Chron. 7:14) - "if MY people, which are called by MY name (Christian) will humble themselves, and pray, and seek MY face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land". But this must be much more than mere "lip service". God give us the strength to see and follow His truth!
