When the command was given to Abraham to leave Ur of the Chaldees, and he obeyed, the initial step was taken in the implmentation of the unfolding Divine plan by means of a racial instrumentality. Unquestioning belief in the promises of God was the keystone of Abraham's character: "Faith enabled Abraham to obey when God summoned him to leave his home for a region which he was to have for his own, and to leave home without knowing where he was going. Faith led him to make a temporary home as a stranger in the land he had been promised, and to live there in his tents, with Isaac and Jacob, who shared the promise with him." (Hebrews 11:8-9, Smith & Goodspeed Translation).
The account then goes on to relate: "Faith made even Sarah herself able to have a child, although she was past the time of life for it, because she thought that he who had made the promise would keep it, And so from one man, for any prospect of descendants as good as dead, there sprang a people in number like the stars in the heavens or the countless sands on the seashore." (Hebrews 11:11-12, Smith & Goodspeed Translation).
That child was Isaac, of whom God had said: "Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will estalish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him." (Genesis 17:19).
Later on, God reiterated emphatically: "In Isaac shall thy seed be called." (Genesis 21;12).
Professor Edward Odlum maintained that the correct translation is: "In Isaac shall thy seed be named." He went on to state: "This covenant promise has been made good. The seed of Isaac today are called Sacksons (Saxons) in and after Isaac." In his book, "The Post-Captivity Names of Israel, Dr. William P. Goard mentioned some of the later derivations of the name of the son of Abraham and Sarah: "The name Isaac has also a score or more of variations, such as Sakai, Sacae, Sakasuna.
Isaac: This was a patronymic. It was given by the Almighty before Isaac was born, as the name of the "seed" in whom the covenant would be vested. It was brought down through all the generations, for "in Isaac shall thy seed be called" was the promise and the command of God. Isaac was an older name than Israel. It was and still is the family name for Israel. Israel stands for religious relationship with God. Isaac stands for family relationship."
This was the seed of Abraham which was to spread abroad over the face of the whole earth, northward, southward, eastward, westward, uncountable as the sands of the seashore and as the stars of the heavens for multitude. (Genesis 13:14-16; 15:5) Today the descendants of Abraham are the peoples who inhabit the nations allotted to the Anglo-Saxon-Germanic-Celtic peoples, who are God's Heritage. Moses specifically stated this: "When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel. For the Lord's portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance." (Deuteronomy 32:8-9)
The word "lot" means "measuring line" and one of the original words contributing to its definition implies "as by a pledge." That pledge was the unconditional covenant God made with Abraham.
At the time that the judgment upon Sodom and Gomorrah was being determined, the Lord caused His thoughts to be expressed in the form of a soliloquy: "And the Lord said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do; seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?" (Genesis 18:17-18)
God separated Abraham and his seed from all the families of the earth in order to have, among the nations, an officially-constituted witness. Abraham, the frined of God, testified to the faithfulness of the Lord as a covenant-keeping God. It is stated of Abraham's household: "All these people lived all their lives in faith, and died without receiving what had been promised; they only saw it far ahead and welcomed the sight of it." (Hebrews 11:13, Smith & Goodspeed Translation).
Later on, by the deliverance of the seed of Abraham from Egyptian slavery, the power and might of Jehovah, the God of Israel, was made manifest in a spectacular demonstraton of direct intervention. It was not only a witness to the nations of that generation, but down through the ages it has testified to the ability of God to deliver His people in a time of great trouble.
The third generatoin of Abraham's descendants, called by the name of Israel, encamped at the foot of Mount Sinai and there the Kingdom of God was organized on the earth. There the people received the commandments, statutes and judgments of the Law of the Lord. through Moses God declared they were to become a kingdom of priests (Exodus 19:6) that is, administrators of God's law, first as the law of their land, then, ultimately, to bring justice to all mankind. No other race on the face of the globe was selected for this task. It was the responsibility and destiny placed upon the shoulders of the seed of Abraham because, in the Divine foreknowledge, it was known that they alone, as Abraham's posterity, would possess the inherent characteristics which would enable them, under Divine tutelage, to fulfill God's will to bring peace to the world under the rightwous rule of His Kingdom.
The primary obligaton of the Kingdom people was to bear testimony on God's behalf. A witness is one who beholds, or has personal knowledge of, that to which he testifies. Therefore, he is able to certify to the accuracy of his attestation when it is placed in evidence. The Bible refers continaully to the responsibility that rests upon those to whom God has given the task of affirming the certainty of His plan for the redemption of His people and the salvation of mankind. The announcement was made through the Prophet Ixaiah: "Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God."
Further on the Lord declared: "This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise." (Isaiah 43:21)
The people addressed were then cautioned: "Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen: Thus saith the Lord that made thee, and formed thee from the womb (i.e., Isaac's birth was by Divine intervention), which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen." (Isaiah 44:1-2)
Ferrar Fenton translates the latter part of this verse as: "You are My proof no God exists but Me, I know no other Rock."
As Christians, we praise the Lord as the Rock of our salvation and the Psalmist David testified to this also: "The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength (Rock), in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower, I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies." (Psalm 18:2-3)
Therefore, from the very outset, it has been the avowed Divine purpose that the people set apart to be His witnesses would testify, by word and deed, that He is God. The history of His people amply demonstrates how He has dealt with them to accomplish this objective. Today, as the age closes, the Scriptures make it very clear that this is still the Divine determination and the manner in which it will be implemented depends upon the people themselves.
On the part of Satan, however, there is a continual, evil scheming which is intent upon bringing about the defeat of the Divine goal, using every kind of diabolical intrigue to achieve that end. Isaiah refers to Satan as Lucifer (Isaiah 14:12) and relates what he (Satan) has said "in his heart": "I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God...I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High." (Isaiah 14:13-14)
When God placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, giving them dominion over the earth, Satan promptly arranged an intrusion in the hope of thwarting the Divine purpose when he succeeded in causing them to sin. Many generations later, when God organized His Kingdom at Mount Sinai and instituted a juridically perfect governmental administration, Satan again and again interposed himself to impede the progress of the Divine plan and prevent the perfection of the Divine laws of righteiousness from being demonstrated in the sight of all nations. He persuaded the nation Israel to sin by embracing idolatry, just as he had induced Adam and Eve to sin. Satan knew he could not move against God Himself, but he could move against God's people.
Satan has been constantly involved in one plot after another in his attempts to debase and debauch the seed of Abraham so that God's covenant promises to them could not be fulfilled. He has bent every effort toward causing their witness to cease. When the thirteen-tribed Kingdom of Israel came into being, the people were subjected to his constant harassment. In the course of events he was able to assist the disruptive forces which brought about the dividing of the Kingdom into the House of Israel (ten tribes and 1/2 tribe of Levi) and the House of Judah (2 tribes and 1/2 tribe of Levi). The two divisions warred against one another for many decades.
The eventual outcome was the subjugation of both sections of the Israel Kingdom by the neighboring empires, Assyria and Babylon. The House of Israel and the greater part of the House of Judah went into Assyrian captivity and after the escape of following generations of these people from the lands of their captors, they moved out of medieval oblivion into the stream of modern history, emerging as the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Celtic peoples.
Satan was therefore ultimately successful in corrupting the House of Israel by aiding and abetting their adoption of idolatrous practices. God finally wrote the House of Israel a bill of divorcement and they became, as the Prophet Hosea named them (Hosea 1:9), Loammi ("not my people"). Very likely Satan concluded that he had won a great victory when he masterminded the demonstration by God's people that, in spite of all that the Lord had done for them, they could be persuaded to repudiate Him and turn to idolatry.
What Satan failed to see, however, was that Israel's backsliding and turning away from the Lord, causing Him to divorce them, was to be used of God to bring about the ultimate overthrow of Satan and all of his machinations. Almighty God was not to be defeated, although it became necessary for Him to intervene to redeem His people since, as the result of the bill of divorcement. Hosea's prophecy had come to pass: "For ye are not my people, and I will not be your God." (Hosea 1:9)
When Adam and Eve sinned, God provided a Saviour, "the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world." (Revelation 13:8) He had said to the serpent who beguiled Eve: "I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." (Genesis 3:15)
When the backsliding of the House of Israel resulted in punishment by captivity, God began to move in a marvelous way to turn the outcome of their rebellion into a means by which they could be delivered. He not only brought about their redemption, but He wrought salvation for the whole world. Paul was pointedly concise when he commented on this: "Now I ask myself, 'Was this fall of theirs an utter disaster?' It was not! For through their failure the benefit of salvaton has passed to the Gentiles, with the result that Israel is made to see and feel what it has missed. For if their failure has so enriched the world, and their defection proved such a benefit to the Gentiles, think what tremendous advantages their fulfilling of God's plan could mean!...For if their exclusion from the pale of salvation has meant the reconciliation of the rest of mankind to God, what would their inclusion mean? It would be nothing less than life from the dead!" (Romans 11:11-12, 15, Phillips Translation).
Israel was again to be used to show that God is indeed the Lord God Almighty. Through Isaiah a special message was directed to divorced Israel: "Thus saith the LORD, Where is the bill of your mother's divorcement, whom I have put away? or which of my creditors is it to whom I have sold you? Behold, for your iniquities have ye sold yourselves, and for your transgressions is your mother put away. Wherefore, when I came, was there no man? when I called, was there none to answer? Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem? or have I no power to deliver?..." (Isaiah 50-1-2)
Following these questions the Saviour Himself prophetically said: "The Lord GOD hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned. The Lord GOD hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back. I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting. For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed." (Isaiah 50:4-7)
The fifty-third chapter of Isaiah portrays in vivid detail what was to be endured by the suffering Messiah; who bore our griefs and sorrows; who was wounded for our transgressions; who was bruised for our iniquities; with whose stripes we are healed. The Prophet said: "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all." (Isaiah 53:6)
As the result of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord, the House of Israel was redeemed from the curse of the law that condemned them. By His sacrifice our Lord blotted out the handwriting of the bill of divorcement that separated the House of Israel from their God. They became His redeemed people and were once more in a position, through their Redeemer, to be reinstated as His servants and witnesses.
Therefore, by causing Israel to suumble and fall, Satan unwittingly provided the means by which the whole world woud come to know the mercy of the Lord, and by which his own ultimate downfall would be assured.
Nevertheless, Satan never admits defeat. When frustrated in one endeavor, his own innate malignity goads him to seek another way to hinder and, he hopes, effectively block the outworking of the Divine design.
Having failed to destory Jesus Christ, whose resurrection assured the redemption of God's people, Satan fouind himself cast out of heaven. But every loss that he suffers only infuriates him all the more and incites him to strike out in greater frenzy. The twelfth chapter of the Book of Revelation symbolizes his actions in great wrath as he began first to persecute the Woman (Israel) who had given birth to the Redeemer who will ultimately become King of kings and Lord of lords. Divinely protected, however, the people of Israel fled into the wilderness, beyond his reach, for they were sealed under angelic supervision. That result was that Satan declared war to the end on the Woman's seed: "And the dragon (Satan) was wroth with the woman (Isreal), and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ." (Revelation 12:17).
Today the climax nears in this age-long struggle for world mastery and Satan is well aware of this. He is still working to corrupt the seed of Abraham as he corrupted the seed of the mother of the race (Eve). The final outcome then was the judgment of destruction upon the earth by the waters of the Deluge.
We are now living in times which our Lord has informed us will be like the days of Noah. (Matthew 24:37) Satan has reasoned, and correctly, that if he can adulterate the appointed seed by a latter-day mutation of the bloodstream, God will be stopped from carrying out His covenant promises to Abraham and, through him, to the descendants of Isaac. Thus, Satan would gain a respite and defer the day of judgment upon himself which he so dreads. He well knows that, in order for jesus Christ to assume His Kingship, take the throne of His father David and reign over the House of Jacob forever, at least a remnant of the seed of Abraham must be preserved in purity.
In these closing days of the age, the Lord is critically surveying the troubles afflicting His people: "Now therefore, what have I here, saith the Lord, that my people is taken away for nought? They that rule over them make them to howl, saith the Lord; and my name continaully every day is blasphemed." (Isaiah 52:5)
Ferrar Fenton renders the last part of this verse: "For My People they seize for no debt, Their masters who make them to howl, Says the Lord. And My Name all day treat with comtempt."
Then follows the exclamation: "Yet My Race shall acknowldege My Power, On the day when I come, and exclaim, 'Here I am!'"
Today national leaders in Washington and London, and in many other Israel lands, are causing consternation and "howling" among the people they govern. Their actions are stirring up strife, pitting one group against another, especially in racial conflict, enslaving the people, not because of any debt they owe, but to satisfy the insatiable demands of ever-increasing bureaucratic proposals in the drive to establish a socialist state. The leadership in modern Israel has become so corrupt that the people are in a state of bewilderment. However, this has not escaped the notice of the Lord and the entire thirty-fourth chapter of the Book of Ezekiel is devoted to His condemnation of those who rule over His people, whom He calls shepherds:
2 Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?...As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock; Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD; Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them."
The chapter concludes with the Lord's guarantee that He will come to the assistance of His people, when he has "broken the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them." (Ezekiel 34:27): "Thus shall they know that I the Lord their God am with them, and that they, even the house of Israel, are my people, saith the Lord God. And ye my flock, the flock of my pasture, aremen, and I am your God, saith the Lord God." (Ezekiel 34:30-31).
Now a devil-inspired move is on foot in the United States of America which, if successful, would bring about the annihilation of the Race of the Book; the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Celtic peoples, far mor effectively and completely than any other kind of catastrophe that might be set in motion. This is the plan to destroy, by integration and intermarriage, the people of whom God declared: "Thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend. Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away." (Isaiah 41:8-9)
God decreed that they were to be the nucleus of His kingdom; the Kingdom of God on the earth. When He organized the seed of Abraham into a nation at Mout Sinai, He announced to them: "Ye shall be unto me a kingdom." (Exodus 19:6) It is this Kingdom over which Jesus Christ is to rule as King, according to the Angel's proclamation to Mary, for he said to her: "Behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring foreth a son, and shall 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 shll reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end." (Luke 1:31-33)
The drive to break down all racial barriers would accomplish a two-phased objective, one the consequence of the other; first, the destruction of the covenant race of Abraham; second, the failure of the prophecy given to Mary, the mother of Jesus, for her Son coud not reign over a people no longer in existence. It would therefore be impossible for Jesus Christ to return and take the throne promised to Him.
Any member of the Anglo-Saxon race today who marries a negro walks out from under the Divine covenant made with Abraham and his seed just as surely as Esau forfeited the blessings of that covenant when Hittite women became his wives. God decreed that His people must retian their purity of racial stock in order to be unhindreed in discharging their responsibility when they became "a nation and a company of nations" (Genesis 35:11) in the latter days. They were admonished not to enter into covenat reltionships with the nations around them, with the further specific command: "Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son." (Deuteronomy 7:3)
The reason for this was given: "For thou art an holly people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth." (Deuteronomy 7:6)
Israel was called a "holy" people in the sense that they were to be a people set apart for service to God, for that which touches the altar is holy unto the Lord. The race of Isaac was so dedicated when Abraham placed his son Isaac on the altar of the Lord in response to the Divine command. The story of this stirring experience of far-reaching import in the lives of Abraham, Isaac and their seed is told in the twenty-second chapter of Genesis.
Satan is utilizing a two-pronged tool; one side marked "political," the other side marked "social," with which to send the White Race into oblivion. An unscrupulous governmental leadership has joined hands with an apostatized clergy to wield this tool to bring about the mutation of the bloodstream of the seed of Abraham.
The Christian Church today, engulfed in Laodicean apostasy, has gone on record against the Divine injunctions which its constituency should wholeheartedly support. Having ignored the Old Testament Scriptures for the most part, they do not realize the identity of the Race of the Book. Consequently, they are easily duped by their own "social gosepl" into supporting brainwashing techniques which are not only unscriptural but in direct defiance of the World of God.
One example of this degenerating trend is the resolution passed by the Presbyterian Church in their General Assembly, held in May of 1965, in Columbus, Ohio, which "recognizes that interracial marriage is an issue that cannot be ignored; urges members of the church to work with others for the repeal or nullification of laws prohibiting interracial marriage." Many ministers and evantelists have since gone on record as not opposed to interracial marriages. Thus, they flout the Divine edict that His people are not to mingle their seed with other races.
In connection with the signing of the Voting Rights Act on August 6, 1965, President Johnson observed: "Today the negro story and the American story fuse and blend." Nothing could have been further from the truth. Concerted efforts were undertaken to accelerate the registering of all negroes, regardless of competeny and making the public school system interracial, and the fallacy of this action has been clealry shown. Thime has shown with certainty that rebardless of competency, ann their use of this right has not resulted in their betterment, in fact, it has accelerated their decline into the animals they are; they have not even remotely reached the glory of the American heritage; a heritage that is the result of thousands of years of white civiliation and Christian culture. Forthcoming events, from 1965, have demonstrated that the blood of the white race of Abraham and the blood of the negroes can be blended; but it will bring about violent reactions, resulting in heightened racial strife and mounting ruthless and senseless slaughter.
Through the Federal drive to force the races together, certain sections of the United States, now predominatly negro, have seen the disfranchisement of white citizens as far as a voice in the administrationof the affairs of state is concerned. Who will deny that the ultimate result of this will be political chaos? It is obvious that God Himself must halt this descent into oblivion and we may be thankful that He has emphatically stated He will do so: "No weaon that is formed against thee (i.e., against God's people; not even the ballot or affirmative action) shall prosper; and every tongue that shall raise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn (many are extremely vocal in this regard, including our national leaders)." (Isaiah 54:17)
The concluding sentence of this passage in Isaiah is: "This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteiouness is of me, siath the Lord."
In "Races At War," Destiny for September 1963, it wass pointed out: "Today we have reached the time when races are again at war. One of the leaders in the Black Muslim movement recently asserted: 'We are of the black nation and we must recapture our rightful heritage and culture and live accordingly.' What is meant by the phrase 'recapture our rightful heritage?' Is this an allusion, wittingly or unwittingly, to a racial dominance once achieved and lost? Will a new attempt to gain black supremacy end this time in the foretold judgment by fire? 'In Time Magazine for June 21, 1963, the phrase 'negro revolution' is used which, it is states, 'is presently characterized by acts...acts (which) would be far less effective were it not for word; the words of the U.S. Constitution, of constitutional amendments, of judges, and acts of Congress, words given the force of law by presxidential fiat...Today, they are the license for action.'"
Added to this was the new impetus given to negro aspirations by the President when he went to the Capitol on Friday, August 6, 1965, to sign the voting rights bill. He observed that, with that action, "we strike away the last major shacles of those fierce and ancient bonds" of the negroes. Then he urged them in his speech: "Let me say now to every negro in this country: you must register. You must vote. And you must learn, so your choice advances your interest and the interest of the nation."
But what if the right to vote was interpreted as the right to riot? What then? In the Wall Street Journal for August 16, 1965, this comment appeared: "Indeed, some have a nagging fear that civil rights laws may termporarily; though surely unintentionally; make the situation worsze. As some negroes rise, they say, the feeligns of others who have been left behind, and led to expect better things, may become even more inflamed. (Which has certainly come to pass) The history of revolution shows that when conditions get better, people become more openly dissatisfied, warns Seymour Leventman, Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Pennsylvania. The disparit between their lot and others becomes more evident. So it's not accidntial that rioting is occurring after the civil rights legislation."
There is nothing accidential about any part of this accelerating pattern of turmoil and violence. Those who attempt to excuse the violence negroes are giving voice to utterly foolish explanations; for example, the following statement: "The negro people have been told they have been dislocated and that the white man is treating them unfairly, so that this uprising is not against the police but should be considered against the whole white power structure."
This kind of senseless phraseology is a part of the Communist-inspired brainwashing drivel that is spun out like a sticky web to corrode the thinking of the unwary. There is no such thing as a "white power structure" that would prevent any negro from using his ambition, labor and initiative to better his economic condition. Many negroes who have "made good" in this country can testify to this and have done so.
There is present in our midst, however, a "power structure" which is a deadly menace to all that is orderly and constructive. Its whole aim is world domination and it is motivated by the Satanic lust to divide, disrupt and destroy what it cannot control. As pointed out in "Review of World Affairs," Destiny, Eighth Issue 1965: "Left to themselves, the American negroes would probably be no more than a limited embrassment which could be controlled by firmness, tact and true appreciation of the principles of human rights. The real danger arises from the fact that these movements (i.e., African Nationalist Independence-Partition Party, The African-American Nationalist Party, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, whose aim is no less than the establishment of an independent black-ruled state consisting of all territory south of the Mason-Dixon Line) have come under highly efficient Communist (Jewish) control. The evidence is indisputable. That does not mean that all American negroes are Communists; or even a majority of them. But their leaders are encouraged, abetted, incited and cinanced by Communist and Jewish agencies for the deliberate purpose of undermining the secuirty of the United States.
That is the plain fact. If it is not soon recognized and ealt with while it is relative easy to do so, the result may be the development of a very dangerous situation which it will be imposible to bring under control without using measures of a very severe kind. Unfortunately, the Federal Government has become to a great extent the prisoner of its own propaganda and it is becoming increasingly difficult for it to take appropriate steps. Nevertheless, the situation wil, soon or later, have to be faced."
