As a patriotic fever sweeps the United States, there is a hidden theological force emerging, known as Identity. People holding this theological viewpoint are active in the Anti-Tax Movement; many have infiltrated Militia groups; they are very active in Bo Gritz' SPIKE TRAINING; they are showing up at gun shows, town meetings and just about any place where concerned Americans gather to discuss the future of this nation.
The movement has some fairly well known leaders who are preaching the “gospel according to ldentity” on radio and TV. Some of the most well known leaders among them are Pastor Peter J. Peters from the LaPorte Church of Christ in LaPorte, Colorado; Col. Jack Mohr, a fundamental Baptist lay evangelist from Little Rock, Arkansas; Pastor Everett Sileven, a Baptist minister of Faith Baptist Church of Louisville, Nebraska, who in 1979-1984 became well known for operating a Christian school without a state license. His church was padlocked and he and seven elders were jailed by State authorities. (Since his conversion to the Identity faith, Pastor Sileven has now legally changed his name to Ramsey).
Television evangelist Arnold Murray of Shepherd's Chapel in Gravette, Arkansas is reaching a number of Christians who are tired of playing church and are enticed by this very professional religious huckster. One of Murray's disciples is Pastor Terry Parker, who calls his organization Morning Watch Chapel, located in North Highlands, a suburb of Sacramento, California. Parker is basically using short wave radio to spread his message of Identity.
Herbert W. Armstrong, founder of the World Wide Church of God, was a very well known leader of the Identity movement while he was alive.
Nord Davis, Jr. is a very intellectual teacher and writer who has produced some hard core
writings for the Identity movement, particularly his series called Star Wars.
John Coleman (last known address Carson City, Nevada) has been a writer in the Identity movement for years. For about eleven years he was affiliated with "The New Christian Crusade Church," with its publishing house, Sons of Liberty, located in Metairie, Louisiana. From here he moved to the San Diego area in California, and is now connected with E.J. Ekker and his wife Doris (see reprint article from The Dove, Summer 1994, concerning the Ekkers). The late Dr. Wesley A Swift was working from the 1960's in the Los Angeles area and produced an abundance of material, written and spoken, which is still being reproduced and circulated in the Identity movement by the Sons of Liberty.
The late Gordon Kahl (murdered by federal agents) was a believer of the Identity gospel, and so are the so called "Freemen" in Montana.
There are thousands of small Identity churches in the United States, each one producing newsletters and other written literature in order to win more converts. One such small group is The New Harmony Christian Crusade with Pastor George Udvary, located in Midpines, California.
THE TEN LOST TRIBES OF ISRAEL ARE THE WHITE ANGLO-SAXON RACE!
The irony of this theology, which teaches that Jews are the offspring of Satan (serpent seed), is that the entire teaching is a mixture of Cabalistic teaching and this movement could have been fanned by Cabalistic Jews who saw this as a tool to destroy the Christian faith in the United States. But let us now dissect point for point, what the Identity religion is and how it was started.
THE SERPENT SEED DOCTRINE
Let me quote from an official doctrinal statement from the Identity teaching:
"We believe in an existing being known as the Devil or Satan and called the Serpent, who has a literal 'seed' or posterity in the earth commonly called Jews today. These children of Satan through Cain are a race of vipers, antichrists, who have throughout history always been a curse to true Israel, the Children of God, because of a natural enmity between the two races, because they do the works of their father the Devil, and because they please not God, and are contrary to all men, though they often pose as ministers of righteousness. The ultimate end of this evil race whose hands bear the blood of our Savior and all the righteous slain upon the earth, is Divine judgment."
Here is how Arnold Murray explains it to his followers:
"When the Devil came to Eve in the Garden of Eden and seduced her, there was more to it than what the Bible states in Genesis 3:1-8. Not only did Eve eat of the forbidden fruit, but she had sexual intercourse with the Devil (in the serpents body) and became pregnant from this one time encounter." (Murray is using 2 Corinthians 11:3 to back up his doctrine, using the word "beguiled," which he says means to be "wholly seduced.') "Through this intercourse with the Devil, Eve became pregnant and gave birth to Cain, who then became the father of the "serpent seed." Murray teaches that this seed line, also called the Jews (those who are now dead and the ones now living on the earth), are Kenites. The Identity teachers proclaim that Kenites are not a race, but a "hybrid," and that they are less than human.
Here is what Nord William Davis, Jr. believes concerning the "Serpent Seed Line":
"The riddle to be solved is this: Since the Pharisee Jews have been identified by Christ as being Satan's physical seedline and kindred, then the Gospel of Christ is not for them. If their seedline was not a physical one, but only a 'spiritual one,' as some suggest, then there would be nothing to prevent Esau's children from getting their 'spirit right with God' and be saved. Some of my good Christian friends, who hold that Satan does not have a literal seedline, are preaching, in effect, that ALL MEN can be saved. If they would only get their 'spiritual genes' altered by getting 'the spiritual seed of Satan' out and 'spiritual woman's seed' in. . . That, they say, is but a simple matter of their 'free will to choose Christ and thus become a spiritual Israelite.' They imply that by your will, you can change from a Tare to a Wheat."
(STAR WARS, A Personal Letter By Nord William Davis, Jr., published by the Northpoint Teams, Topton, North Carolina, 1993, Page 24)
Here is what Nord Davis, Jr., Arnold Murray and the Identity movement believe and preach:
"THERE IS NO SALVATION FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE; THEY ARE SUBHUMAN"
This is the same theology that was presented to the Germans by the Nazi party. The only difference was that all other races except the German race were subhuman. Once a group of people have been declared subhuman, the next step is that these beings can be eliminated (since they are not human). That is the reason the people who are promoting abortion like to use the medical term, fetus, for a baby in the womb. They say a fetus is not a human being and thus can be murdered.
WHAT IS THE SOURCE FOR THIS TEACHING?
The Identity teachers are using a number of Bible verses to back up their claims, but even a person who has not been theologically trained, but is guided by the Holy Spirit, can see that this is FALSE TEACHING! Here are the most obvious glaring mistakes:
1. No place in the Bible does it state that Satan had intercourse with Eve.
2. It is clearly recorded that Adam had intercourse with Eve and her first born son was Cain.
And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord. Genesis 4:1
Looking at the Hebrew text for this verse, "the Lord" is translated from the Hebrew word "Yahweh," which is known in the King James Version as Jehovah, which means in English "THE EXISTING ONE. " Thus even the most "wicked" teacher CANNOT TWIST THIS VERSE TO SAY ANYTHING BUT WHAT IT SAYS: CAIN IS THE SON OF ADAM AND EVE. Thus Cain was as human as Adam and Eve and the rest of their children.
3. The Bible records in Genesis, chapter six, that there was a flood upon the earth that killed all human beings exept Noah, his wife, their three sons and their wives. Noah's blood line was from Seth, who was the son of Adam and Eve (Genesis 4:25), which means that Noah's three sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth were also from the blood line of Seth. Since the Bible states very clearly THAT THE FLOOD COVERED THE WHOLE EARTH, only these eight people survived the flood. Thus all people living today are direct descendants from these eight people. Most Identity teachers reject that there was a world wide flood, and claim that it was only local. Thus they have to destroy Scripture in order to validate their teaching.
A TWISTED IRONY
The teaching of the "Serpent seed" is a Jewish teaching, dating back some 1,900 years, and was written down some 600 years ago in the "Zohar," which is one of the 550, or so, books that make up the written work of the Kabbalah (English, Cabala).
In Zoar (l,28b) it states: "Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field, etc. (Genes.III,1) 'More subtle,' that is towards evil; 'than all the beasts,' ,that is, the idolatrous people of the earth. For they are the children of the ancient serpent which seduced Eve."
This ancient serpent, the parent of Christians, that is, the devil in the form of a serpent, is called "Sammael" (cf. Targum lobi,XXVIII,7). Rabbi Maimonides writes in "More" (Bk.II, ch.30) that Sammael took the form of a serpent and seduced Eve. He is also called the ‘Angel of Death,’ and 'the Head of the assembly of evil ones.' Debbarim Rabba (208c) calls him "Sammael the impious one, the prince of all devils." (Rabbi Bechai 9 in Mikkets) calls him "The Impious Sammael, the Prince of Rome."
The Kabbalah teaches that the souls of Christians are evil and unclean. The reason for this is that God created two natures, one good and one evil. In Zohar I (131a), it says: "Idolatrous people, however, since they exist, before the world, because their souls come out of the unclean side." And in Emek Hammelech (23 d) it says: "The souls of the impious come from Keliphah, which is death and the shadow of death."
SUMMARY: The Identity teachers have taken the false teachings of Kabbalistic Jews, and the only change they have made is that they have replaced the White Race with the Jews, and relegated the Jews to the serpent seed.
This raises a question: Is it possible that Kabbalistic Jews developed this teaching and started the Identity movement in order to split the Christians against each other? I cannot prove that, but I suspect that this is so, since Kabbalistic Jews have started a number of organizations which on the surface seem very hostile against Judaism. These tactics give the Kabbalistic leaders the advantage, in that by creating monster organizations they are driving all Jews into their own ranks, promising to protect them, and at the same time sowing discord among the rest of the people in the world.
This is a term often used by commentators on Television newscasts and by the press. Every time they speak of Randy Weaver, he is labeled a "white supremacist." Where does the term come from? Let me begin explaining this by quoting directly from the same doctrinal statement by the Identity movement:
"We believe God chose unto Himself special race of people that are above all people upon the face of the earth. These children of Abraham through the called-out seedline of Isaac and Jacob were to be a blessing to all the families of the earth who bless them and a curse to those that curse them. The descendants of the twelve sons of Jacob, called 'Israel,' were married to God, have not been cast away, have been given the adoption, glory, covenants, law, service of God, and promises; are the ones to whom the Messiah came electing out of all twelve tribes those who inherit the Kingdom of God.
"We believe that the New Covenant was made with the Children of Israel, the same people the Old Covenant was made with in fulfillment of the mercy promised our forefathers.
"We believe the White, Anglo-Saxon, Germanic and kindred people to be God's true, literal Children of Israel. Only this race fulfills every detail of Biblical Prophecy and World History concerning Israel and continues in these latter days to be heirs and possessors of the Covenants, Prophecies, Promises and Blessings YHVH God made to Israel. This chosen seedline making up the 'Christian Nations' of the earth stands far superior to all other peoples in their call as God's servant race. Only these descendants of the 12 tribes of Israel scattered abroad have carried God's Word, the Bible, throughout the world, have used His Laws in the establishment of their civil governments and are the Christians opposed by the Satanic Anti-Christ forces of this world who do not recognize the true and living God."
Here is what the Identity movement is teaching, and in particular Arnold Murray and the late Herbert W. Armstrong: "When the ten northern tribes of Israel were removed from the land of Israel in 722 BC, they did not get lost but migrated as a nation north and west and settled in what is today Germany, the Scandinavian countries and England. When England began to colonize North America, these descendants of the ten tribes of Israel also populated North America, as the white Anglo-Saxon race. Since God is only going to save the White race from hell, these white people are the only true people of God. Hence the term IDENTITY; the lost tribes of Israel have been found and identified.
Let me now quote Pastor Ovid Need, Jr. who, in his book, IDENTIFYING IDENTITY, has done an outstanding scholastic work refuting this heresy:
"The theory that the inhabitants of England are the descendants of the ‘lost’ (?) Ten Tribes of Israel is held somewhat widely... The earliest suggestions of an Israelitish ancestry of the English are to be found in John SadIer’s 'RIGHTS OF THE KINGDOM' (1649). These take the form of a series of parallels between English law and customs and those of the Hebrews and Jews. The name 'Britain' itself is traced to a Phoenician source, Berat Anak ('The field of Tin and Led')...
"The modern movement owes its foundation to Richard Brothers (1757-1824), a half-pay officer of eccentric habits in the English Navy. According to his account he was a Divinely appointed prophet. He described himself as a 'nephew of the Almighty,' and claimed descent from David. Among his prophecies were those of the imminent restoration of Israel to the Holy Land, and the elevation of himself as prince of the Hebrews and ruler of the world. Brothers was confined as a lunatic, but succeeded in obtaining many admirers, among them Nathaniel Brassey Halket, Member of Parliament for Lymington. The non-fulfilment of his prophecies sorely tried the faith of the believers, but through good and ill repute he retained the loyalty of John Finlayson, previously a Scottish lawyer with an extensive and lucrative practice.
¼.. In 1840 the theory was adopted by John Wilson, who lectured and wrote widely on the subject¼.
....... Other advocates in the nineteenth century were W. Carpenter (Israelites Found).
F. R. A. Glover (England the Remnant of Judah) and C. Piazzi Smyth, the Astronomer-Royal of Scotland, who deduced from certain measurements of the Great Pyramid that the English were descended from the Lost Tribes.
"In 1871, Edward Hine published his identification of the British Nation with the book 'Lost Israel' of which a quarter of a million copies are said to have been sold. In the United States the leaders of the movement have been W. H. Poole and G. W. Greenwood."
In 1886, E. P. Ingersoll published a book entitled:
LOST ISRAEL FOUND IN THE ANGLO-SAXON RACE with the subtitle, "The Promises Made To Abraham, To Isaac, And To Jacob, All Fulfilled In The Anglo-Saxon Race."
Ingersoll revealed that one day while he was preparing a lecture on the Great Pyramid of Giza, he stumbled upon this statement by professor P. Smyth, Astronomer Royal to Scotland: "The Anglo-Saxons being the identical descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel." Ingersoll contacted Smyth who sent him further material (most of which was not Smyth's). Studying the material, Ingersoll became convinced and motivated and made the following statement:
..... as by a divine injunction,' This Gospel go thou and proclaim, till from on high thou art called home;' and I have not been disobedient to this heavenly vision. Not that there was any perceptible manifestation, as in the case of Saul of Tarsus, but the evidence of the identity of the Anglo-Saxons with the lost tribes of Israel became as convincing to me as the manifestation made to Saul, that Jesus Christ was he whom Saul was then persecuting; and from that time to this, I have endeavored to execute my commission to the utmost of my ability..."
It is important for the reader to understand that the Identity teachers are presenting their viewpoints, which cannot be backed up from the Bible. If certain verses in the Bible are quoted out of context, they will somewhat fit their teaching and thus they need some more proofs in order to sway people over to their viewpoint. Therefore, they developed the following phrase: "Established in history and verified by prophecy." In order for history to have the same authority as the Bible, they do not quote from history, but from "THE CANON OF HOLY HISTORY."
It was Herbert W. Armstrong (born 1892 in Des Moines, Iowa) who would propel the teaching of the Anglo-Saxon myth to the American people and the world. Armstrong did not come from a secular background. As a young man he associated himself with the Quakers in Iowa, and when he married his wife he joined the Methodist Church, since this was the faith of his wife. At the age of 34, Armstrong moved his family to Salem, Oregon, where he was introduced to Sabbath keeping, the worshipping on Saturday instead of on Sundays and the observance of Jewish feast days. He and his wife joined the "Church of God Seventh Day," and in a short time Herbert gave up his secular business of advertisement and went into the ministry full time. In 1931 he was ordained by this denomination.
Somehow, Herbert picked up the teachings of E.P. Ingersoll and began to preach a different kind of
gospel, which brought him into conflict with the denomination that had ordained him, and after some time he was “kicked out” and stripped of his ordination papers. This did not slow him down; instead he founded his own denomination, "THE WORLD WIDE CHURCH OF GOD," with a theology that is a mixture of all the things he had learned, including the Sabbath teaching, keeping of Jewish feast days with a strong emphasis on the Anglo-Saxons being the lost ten tribes of Israel.
Thus, The World Wide Church of God is a branch of the Identity movement, but since it stayed under the control of the Armstrong family, it became a multi-billion dollar business and in the same class as the Mormon Church Corporation. Since Herbert did not emphasize the "Jewish question," he was able to use Radio, TV and the media, which to a large degree are controlled by Jewish media bosses.
THE GREAT PYRAMID
Since the Great Pyramid is a corner stone in the teaching of the Ten Lost Tribes, I want to briefly give a background of what it is.
The Encyclopedia Britannica, 1976 edition tells us the following: "There are numerous pyramids located throughout Egypt, but the best known lie along a 50-mile stretch of the Nile Valley west of the river near ancient Memphis and date from the old kingdom (c.2686-2160 B.C.). The three great pyramids of Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure at Giza are the most famous (Khufu is one of the largest buildings ever erected, ancient or modern)." Howard B. Rand (1889-1991), an Identity teacher, in 1966, wrote a small booklet called "THE CHALLENGE OF THE GREAT PYRAMID," with subtitle: “A Scientific Revelation To A Scientific Age." This booklet is published by the Identity publishing house of Destiny Publishers, located in Merrimac, Massachusetts. In the preface of this booklet, on page 1, Rand writes the following:
Any person with intelligence and historical knowledge, will immediately stop and see that placing the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic race in Egypt some 2,600 years before Christ is not just stretching the truth, it is presenting A BLATANT HISTORICAL LIE. Let us look upon the following facts:
"This booklet is a fundamental presentation of evidence concerning the prophetic revelation-measures of the Great Pyramid of Gizeh, stressing the underlying principles of science built into this Magnificent Monument. The onward march of the people of the Building Race - the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic and kindred peoples - passing from one epoch of historical experience to another, has always been guided by the overruling hand of Almighty God."
1. The Bible tells us that God brought Joseph as a slave to Egypt. After Joseph had been in Egypt for some years, he was elevated to first in command after Pharaoh. According to Biblical chronology and archeology, the timing of Joseph in Egypt took place during the Hyksos invasion of Egypt (from the
Hittite empire located in what today is called Turkey). The Great Pyramid was finished hundreds of years earlier.
1. Jacob and the rest of the family came to live in Egypt after Joseph was established in power, thus
beginning the 430 year residency in Egypt of the 12 tribes of Israel. (Exodus 12:41). According to Biblical records Jacob and his family arrived in Egypt 1871 B.C. and the Exodus took place in 1441 B.C.
TRUTH: THE TWELVE TRIBES OF ISRAEL DID NOT EXIST AT THE TIME THE GREAT
PYRAMID WAS BUILT!
2. Abraham and Sarah, who began the family that was going to develop into the nation of Israel, were
born in the city of Ur, in the land of the Chaldees (later called Babylon in what is today Iraq).
David Davidson, a structural engineer of Leeds, England wrote a book entitled, The Great Pyramid: Its Divine Message. On page one of Rand's booklet, Davidson is quoted with the following:
"The object of the Great Pyramid's message is to proclaim Jesus Christ as the Saviour of all: to announce the dated circumstances related to His coming; to prepare them, by means of its message- whether they believe it or not in the first instance - to adapt themselves spiritually to the reality of His coming, when the fact of the message becomes to them a matter of certainty."
But the tragedy with the Identity message is that their "white" Jesus Christ is only saving white people; there is no salvation for other races.
Howard Rand, in his booklet, is using David Davidson's books and works to tell the people embracing the Identity message, that the layout of the Great Pyramid is telling us events which are going to happen in the future, and that it gives evidence the Anglo-Saxon white race is the lost Ten Tribes of Israel.
Any engineering or science student knows that before any calculations can be done on any given project, a decision must be made concerning the kind of measurement system to be used.
It is impossible to base calculations using a mixture of different systems. Yet Davidson and Rand are totally oblivious to this fundamental issue. When the ancient Great Pyramid was built, some 2,600 years ago, the Egyptians used a measuring system different from what we have today. Today, the two basic systems used are the metric system and the British system, using pounds and inches. The British pound/inch system is slightly different from American standard measurements, even if the names are the same.
To measure the pyramid in the British system and then base prophetic teachings on these measurements is not just fraudulent; it is insane. But the average American Christian who is introduced to the Identity message, Is not scientifically trained so will not understand this. He will be caught up "EMOTIONALLY" and swallow the lies, hook, line, and sinker. If God had someone build the pyramid to his specification, then it must be interpreted with the same standard of measurement with which it was built. I believe that the teachings about the Great Pyramid are a ploy from Satan to get people's eyes off the Lord!
SOME DATES PROMOTED BY RAND AND THE IDENTITY MOVEMENT:
"August 20,1953, the terminal date of the Consummation of the Age, and the date of both the south wall of the King's Chamber and its center when, upon entering it we turn west and proceed along its north wall, is also the date of the beginning of the Period of Demolition. This period will end nineteen years later on July 23, 1972, the date of the top of the south wall of the King's Chamber. The roundup of the powers of evil and the dissipation of the energy of evil are now taking place throughout the world, with the assessment and judgment of demonic forces defined as extending from September 16, 1936 to July 23,1972.
"Between August 20,1953 and July 23, 1972, the reign of evil, particularly its principalities and powers of darkness (Eph.6:12) will have reached the height of their venomous fury, only to be annihilated by the release of the unrestrained wrath of God. Such elements of spiritual wickedness as escape the general roundup are symbolized as proceeding southward along the Dead-end Passage leading out of the Subterranean Chamber. There they are overtaken and eliminated by Jesus Christ who, as King of Righteousness, will guide His people into their 'Sabbath of Rest,' the Seventh Millenary beginning September 17, 2001 AD. on the Hebrew Feast of Trumpets."
Former President George Bush was a member of The Order of Skull and Bones and also a major player in World Government circles. In his speeches, Bush spoke about the power of a thousand lights and also of his appointment to be in Egypt at the Great Pyramid at the turn of the century, when the "NEW WORLD ORDER" would be ushered in.
Any person familiar with Freemasonry knows about the teachings of the ancient Egyptians. The closing statement in Rand's book, which I just quoted, sounds like it was taken out of a Freemason teaching.
The rank and file members of the Identity movement have no idea that much of their teaching is actually occult and has its roots, not only in Jewish Kabbalah, but also from Freemasonry and New Age teaching.
Any Bible believing Christian who is born again should remember what Jesus said and reject the lies and innuendoes from the Identity teachers. Here is what Jesus said:
"Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is nigh: So likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
BUT OF THAT DAY AND HOUR KNOWS NO MAN, NO, NOT THE ANGELS OF HEAVEN, BUT MY FATHER ONLY." Matthew 24:32-36
In the light of Jesus' teaching, the day of the Lord knows no man, it defies all logic to think or teach that the people who built the pyramids some 2600 years before Christ were given this knowledge. Neither then, is it logical that a structural engineer from England would discover the date and reveal it to the world. IF DAVID DAVIDSON IS CORRECT, THEN HE IS GREATER THAN JESUS! Again, the average Identity believer does not even think this through. They are told what to believe, get caught up in emotions and are being led straight to hell.
ANOTHER IDENTITY LIE - ADAM WAS A WHITE MAN
Let me again quote the Identity Doctrinal Statement:
"We believe that the Man Adam (A Hebrew word meaning ruddy, to show blood, flush, turn rosy) is the father of the White Race only. As a son of God, made in His likeness, Adam and his descendants, who are also the children of God, can know YHVH God as their Father, not merely as their creator. Adamic man is made trichotomous, that is, not only of body and soul, but having an implanted spirit giving him a higher form of consciousness and distinguishing him from all the other races of the earth."
THREE RACES WERE IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN
Identity teaches that there were three races in the Garden of Eden.
1. Adam and Eve, created in the image of God are the founders of the white race. Only Adam and Eve were created with a spirit, soul and body, and only the white race can know God and be redeemed and enter into the kingdom of God.
2. The second race that God created was the "BEASTS", and according to the Identity teaching, they were the "NEGRO RACE," and they were created with a body and soul only, thus belonging to the
(It is important for me to point out that the thousands of Identity groups existing do not have a perfect homogenous theology, and their belief system can vary from group to group. But on these main points they are pretty much in harmony.)
3. The third race was developed by Satan, when he had intercourse with Eve and made her pregnant with Cain who became the father of the "Serpent Seed" that we have already discussed.
Nord William Davis, Jr. teaches that Satan did not come in the form of a serpent, but instead he had been able to possess one of the black men, and using this "beast' he produced Cain.
THE WRITINGS OF NORD WILLIAM DAVIS, Jr.
Davis is a veteran from the Korean war, having served in the United States Navy,who holds a doctorate degree in Naturapathic Medicine. He retired from the business world, working for IBM, at the age of 36, and has since that time worked full-time as an Identity teacher and writer. He calls his organization the "Northpoint Teams."
In January 1993 he published a series of teachings called STAR WARS. on the core theology of the Identity faith. His base of operation is located in Topton, North Carolina.
Here is what pastor Ovid Need,Jr. writes about the "NEGRO QUESTION" in his book Identifying Identity, from page 32, as Need is refuting Nord Davis, Jr:
"Leaving no stone unturned defending Identity, Davis follows his 'suggested word meanings' for beasts in Genesis 9:5-6 (beast #2416- Chay in Strongs Concordance). Because it makes no sense to Davis for God to require the shed blood of a man from the hands of a beast, beast must, therefore, be talking of a person. Davis deduces from these verses, and many others, that the word beast, means the non-Adamic, Negro Race of people.
'As we have stated in the footlight [his version of footnotes, ed], the best word [in Davis' opinion, not facts, ed] for these Negro people would be Chay, Strong's Hebrew word # 2416. However, a more generic word for Beast,. . - is from the Hebrew word behemah¼’”
"Notice the remarkable, unique ability to change words with absolutely no Scriptural authority. Talk about subtle trickery of language! Thus with amazing absurdity, Davis uses his unique ability to change the Jonah 3:8 word beast, # 929 behemah in Strong's Concordance, to the Genesis 1:25 word beast, #2416 chay. But Davis is not the first to use such 'subtle trickery of language.' Genesis 3:1 best describes his kind of exegesis of God's Word."
It is in Star Wars, Lesson Seven, that Nord Davis, Jr. spills the beans about where he stands on the question of the Negro race. In order to soften up his readers and destroy their defenses against the garbage that he is presenting, the lesson opens with the following statement:
“As you can see, because of natural errors in the translation through a series of languages, intentional mistranslations, and the normal flavor being lost through idiomatic shifts, rightly dividing the word of God takes considerable study. How tragic, it seems to me, that the early Bible translators chose to use the phrase, 'Beast of the field' in their references throughout Scripture to pre-Adamic man. In this End-Time Age, it has caused a major stumbling block to honest Christians who are continually warned against such supposed racism."
Davis is here following the footsteps of other heretics, who first must destroy the Bible translations before he can build something that will fit his fancy. Davis has joined the ranks of the Mormons, the Jehovah's Witnesses, Herbert W. Armstrong and many more who have their own Bible translations.
Davis then makes the following statement on the same page 48;
"It is my belief, and the thesis of this personal Star Wars letter, that the pivot of all Scripture is Genesis 3:15. You see, until Genesis 3:15, there were but two families of mankind on the earth, the made and the created, or as we shall from hence-forth identify as those of Adam and those of Chay. Both, Almighty God has stated, were and are good."
It is very important that the reader understand that the Identity people are very serious; they really believe that the Negro race and all other colored people ARE ANIMALS AND NOT PEOPLE.
Let me quote some more from the writings of Nord Davis, Jr., in order for the reader to understand that I am not making this up (Star Wars, Lesson Seven, Page 49):
"In striking contrast, the Chay men were known as wanderers, the literal meaning of the Land of Nod where Cain would later go to look for a wife or two. It was from this original abode of Chay that Adam selected the most competent workmen to serve him in the Garden. Chay was glad for the opportunity for wherever Chay works around Adam, his lifestyle is immeasurably improved. You do not have to travel very far into the jungles of Africa to see how poorly Chay makes out when going it alone. However, before Genesis 3, it was by the sweat of Chay, not Adam, that the work got done. These two races of men, designed and programmed by God to work harmoniously together, still do today if not incited to discontent by outsiders."
The information that Davis is disclosing here is not to be found anywhere in the Bible. There is not one verse of Scriptural support for his statements. I know that there are many Identity people reading The Dove and I urge you to investigate what I am presenting here. This brings the Identity movement into a LIMITED MISSION WORK. Since most of the Jewish people, according to general Identity teaching, are of the serpent seed, there is no salvation for them and therefore the Gospel is not going to be presented to the Jews.
Here is what Nord Davis, Jr. says about this matter in Star Wars, Lesson Eight, pages 52-53:
"It is obvious that any missionary efforts toward the Children of the Wicked One are doomed to failure, and a complete waste of time and money. Worse than that, it is an insult to our Christ and His ministry and truth¼
"Why bother to extend the Gospel to them? So, to further establish what we taught earlier, there is no way that all men can be saved, for Satan's seed are obviously excluded from those glorious ranks.
"How about the rest of Chay's children living contentedly in the Land of Nod? Were they a party to the sin of Adam and Eve? Of course not! God would not hold accountable to those who had such a perfect alibi, would He? Since Chay's children are not descended from Adam, they were never placed under the Law of Moses. Thus, they are not under the jurisdiction of The Law, and lawfully they are not, and never were, sinners. Since that is true, why would they need a Saviour descended from Adam, their non-Kinsman, in either the spirit or the flesh? Do you see now the reason for the absolute futility of sending Christian missionaries to Africa, India and Asia? Those good folks are not under the penalty of the sin of the Garden or of the Law of Moses! Also, they are not the put-away-in-punishment sheep of the House of Israel. . ."
What are the Identity people telling us? Here is what they are saying:
"ALL COLORED PEOPLE BELONG TO THE ANIMAL KINGDOM AND DO NOT HAVE A SPIRIT, ONLY A BODY AND A SOUL. ANIMALS CANNOT SIN SO THEY DON'T NEED TO BE SAVED. ANIMALS WILL NOT BE JUDGED AND WILL NOT BE CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE."
Identity teachers then refer to Romans 8:19-22 where Paul states that the entire creation was put into bondage because of Adam's sin. But when Jesus died on the cross and rose on the third day, He redeemed the creation from this bondage, including the colored people.
Since Jesus did not tell us to preach to the animals, dogs and cats are not sinners. This is a true Biblical statement. According to Identity teaching we should not preach the Gospel to the colored people since "THEY ARE ANIMALS AND THERE IS NO SALVATION FOR THEM, THEY ARE NOT PART OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND CAN NEVER BE JOINT HEIRS WITH JESUS CHRIST."
THIS IS AN INSULT FROM THE PITS OF HELL AGAINST PEOPLE OF COLOR, AND
MUST BE REFUTED BY EVERY BELIEVER IN CHRIST. ASCRIBING JEWS AS THE
SERPENT SEED IS THE SAME KIND OF INSULT AND SHOULD BE REFUTED BY
Nord Davis, Jr. and the rest of the Identity teachers have prepared themselves well in order to seduce people into their theology. In his Lesson Six of Star Wars on page 47, Davis tells his readers that Paul's statement in Acts 17:26 is not correctly translated. According to Davis, the word BLOOD is not found in some of the more important original Greek manuscripts.
The King James version says: "And has made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;"
Nord Davis, Jr. is twisting this verse, first by adding a sentence from verse 25 without telling the reader what he is doing, then citing as his authority the Roman Catholic Douay-Rheims version that does not contain the word blood; then quoting Ferrar Fenton who he states:
"capitalizes the word One, and leaves out the word blood, for the original texts indicate that the One here is Christ. So, this verse should read: .... Himself giving to every-one life and breath and all things; because He made by One, [i.e. Christ] every race of men to dwell upon the whole face of the earth...' Now, you see the difference!"
Let us now discuss this surgery on the Greek text by Davis. He is not correct that the Greek-English Interlinear New Testament has inserted the word blood in verse 26. Instead, the word found here is enos, meaning one. But in other ancient translations, from which the Lutheran Bible was translated and used in Germany and the Scandinavian countries from the 16th century, the Greek word is translated as progenitor, meaning to beget, a forefather, ancestor in direct line. Neither is the word "race" used in the Greek text, but the words are "every nation."
In order to get a full understanding of this passage, a reader must begin in verse 22 and end in verse 28, and then ask the following question: What was Paul trying to say to the people on Mars' Hill? The message Paul was telling the Greeks was, that they were not a special peculiar people, but that God had made the people of all the nations from the same ancestor.
The average reader of Davis' literature will not make the effort to look this up for himself. Davis has laid it out so "slick" that a person would assume that Davis has done his home work. Thus Nord Davis, Jr. is debunking this verse; rewriting it to fit his theology and then telling his readers that all pastors are deceivers, but they will get the truth from Davis.
BASTARDS SHALL NOT ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD
Nord Davis, Jr. is determined to destroy what he calls "The Roman Road to Salvation." In Lesson Two of his Star Wars, page 24, he brings out the full wickedness of his teaching where he is quoting Deuteronomy 23:2, which reads:
“A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to his tenth generation
shall he not enter into the congregation of the Lord.” (KJV)
Here is the interpretation according to Davis:
"The Hebrew word bastard does not mean an illegitimate child born out of wedlock, as it does in English, but is the Hebrew word mamzer, literally and positively meaning mongrel, i.e. a child of the union of an Israelite and of a non-Israelite. Your Bible makes it plain that such mongrels are not to enter the Kingdom of Heaven prepared by Jesus Christ since the foundation of the world.
"St. Paul amplifies this teaching in Hebrews 12:8 ,wherein he makes the point that God only corrects His sons' and not all Men. St. Paul draws a clear distinction between legitimate sons, and illegitimate sons, and the New Testament calls these people bastards. The other races are good, as God has created them for his purposes, each after his own kind. When this is not the case, and bastards are conceived, it is not good... What these Humanists do not know is that all races have a particular racial memory that God has built into them for their own good. In love for His People, and for the greater good of the other races He created, He does not want these racial memories mixed between the races, as happens when bastards are conceived. You can see the major problems that these bastards must cope with, having the blend of both racial memories and not understanding those conflicting forces going on in their minds."
Again, Davis is using the diabolic logic of his mentor, the Devil, in twisting the Word of God to fit the Identity teaching.
First of all, the Bible does not tell us that Deuteronomy 23:2 is referring to sexual intercourse between whites and non-whites. This assumption is inserted by Davis who has been teaching that only the ten lost tribes of Israel are white people; the rest are colored people.
Instead, the Bible is discussing children born from a mixed marriage of FAITH and of children born out of wedlock or through incest (this is the understanding from the total teaching on the subject by God as given to Moses and recorded in the Five Books of Moses).
Secondly, after a period of ten generations the blood line is cleared, and the offspring can come and worship the Lord in the Sanctuary. It does not talk about the Kingdom of God.
Furthermore, the New Testament tells us that when we are born again, Christ has redeemed us from every curse and set us free. (Galatians 3:7-29) The New Testament teaches that salvation is for all men; the garbage teaching that there are three races of men on this earth CANNOT BE SUPPORTED IN THE BIBLE.
Thirdly, Davis is taking Hebrews 12:8 out of context. Paul is not discussing bastards. He is trying to get across to the Christians that all men who have been saved will be disciplined by our heavenly Father. Verse 8 cannot be singled out and used to build a bastard theology; a person must read from Hebrews 12:1-13 to get the full meaning of this passage.
SUMMARY OF THE IDENTITY TEACHING ON RACE:
1. Jesus died only for the white race, which consists of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, known today as Anglo-Saxons-Celtic.
2. The Negro race, the Asian races, American Indians and the Eskimos belong to the animal kingdom and as animals they have not sinned and need not to be saved by Jesus. They will have the same status in the next world as all other animals. The Gospel should not be preached to them.
3. Most of the Jews are of the. Serpent seed and there is no salvation for them. At death they will suffer
the same fate as the Devil and his fallen angels.
4. Any race mixing of the Anglo-Saxons-Celtic with other races brings forth bastards (mongrels); there is no salvation for them and they will suffer the same fate as the Serpent seed. This means that all Mexicans, most American Indians, the people living in Central and South America, all the mixed races in all other places on the earth, and the majority of the American black people (mixed during the years) and lots of American white people who have either Black or Indian blood in them, will be sent to the Lake of Fire because there is no salvation for them.
Now you know what the term WHITE SUPREMACISTS MEANS!
WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT THE IDENTITY MOVEMENT
First of all, the Identity movement is another false religion in the same class as Mormonism or the Jehovah's Witnesses. The Identity teachers are sending all nations to hell, except the white race, by telling them that THERE IS NO SALVATION FOR THEM AND THAT THEY ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY SINS.
Jesus has a word for any person who is propagating the Identity teaching:
“At the same time came the Disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, and said, Verily I say unto you, Except you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receives me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
Woe unto the world because of offences! For it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence comes! Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend you, cut them off, and cast them from you: it is better for you to enter into life half or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. And if your eye offend you, pluck it out, and cast it from you: it is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.
Take heed that you despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost."
There is only one race on this planet and that is the human race. Jesus Christ died for all men, women, boys and girls and FOR WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED! (Romans 10:13)
The apostle Paul has once and for all written down the final verdict of the fate of a sinner that turns to Christ, repents of his sins and receives Christ as Lord, Saviour and Healer:
"For you are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For asmany of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you be Christ’s, then are you Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
HAS THERE BEEN ANY PRIOR TEACHING ON DEHUMANIZING PEOPLE?
History is full of nations and empires, which have risen, ruled for a time and then have been destroyed and dumped on the ash heap of history. It began with Nimrod and his evil empire that gave the world the worship of Ishtar (his wife) and her illegitimate son, Tammuz, also known as the "Queen of Heaven" and her “virgin born” son Tammuz. Every dictator from Nimrod on has decreed that people outside their own nation were “non-human” and thus they could be used as slaves, killed without the murderer fearing punishment and sexually assaulted at will.
But it is the religion of JUDAISM that has developed a very sophisticated system of “RACISM,” that has been copied by other religious groups. Let us begin by defining some terms:
GENTILE: From the Hebrew word "GOI," which to the Hebrew people means “pagan
sex worshippers, demon invokers, sexually perverted people” etc. That this is a correct understanding of the word Goi is substantiated in 1 Corinthians 10:20 and 1 Thessalonians 4:1-5, for example.
With the development of the Talmud (the Jewish-written extra Biblical laws) which took place in Babylon after the exile in 592 B.C., when the first Jews were removed from Jerusalem and taken to Babylon, the word "Gentile" was universally applied to any person who was not a blood descendant of Abraham or had not been converted to Judaism.
The New Testament refers to the Talmud as "THE TRADITIONS OF THE ELDERS," and was rejected by Jesus (Mark 7:1-13; Matthew 23:1-37). The Talmud consists of 63 books with 524 chapters. Added to these are four other short tracts, which are of later dates.
It is very important for the Christian to understand what the rabbinical teaching is; that the Talmud is their interpretation of the Old Testament and thus the "INTERPRETATION CARRIES A GREATER AUTHORITY THAN THE OLD TESTAMENT." This is similar to the Roman Catholic teaching which claims that the "TRADITION OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH" holds authority over the Old and New Testament.
Judaism has an additional set of writings, called the "KABBALAH," consisting of some 550 books. The rabbis who have embraced the Kabbalah claim that the Kabbalah holds authority over both the Old Testament and the Talmud.
The moment Christians begin to discuss Judaism, Jews and people sympathetic to the political state of Israel become hysterical; all logic is thrown out and they begin to scream about the Holocaust, nazi sympathizers and Jew haters. This noise of insanity will continue until they have prevailed and the people raising a question have been silenced.
This is not new; this is the way the Rabbis have protected themselves for the last 2000 years and it has been working pretty well for them. This was the method used in forcing the crucifixion of Jesus (Matthew 27:15-25); this is how the Rabbis silenced Stephen (Acts 7: 54-60) and the same technique was used against the apostle Paul (Acts 22:17-25; 17:1-9).
But let us now use intelligence and logic in finding the truth. If we are dealing with Judaism, we should then turn directly to Jewish sources and quote them, giving the references, so that any person reading this can check it out for himself and find that what we are saying is accurate.
JEWISH ENCYCLOPEDIA (Volume V, Page 619)
"The Pharisees, interpreting the spirit of the Law, and acting under the elastic rule that 'there is a time to serve the Lord by relaxing his law' (Ps.cxix.126,Hebr.; Yoma 69a), permitted the desecration of the Sabbath in besieging a Gentile city 'until it be subdued' (Deut.xx,20), in accordance with Shammai's interpretation (Shab.19a). This defintion was not new, as already the Maccabeans had taken advantage of it in fighting the enemy unceasingly, putting aside the observance of the Sabbath for the sake of God and of their national existence (I Macc.ii.43,44).
"Probably for the same reason (to facilitate war with the Gentile enemy), the Rabbis modified the laws of purification so as not to apply when one comes in contact with a corpse or human bones, or when one enters an enclosure containing a dead body. With regard to the text' This is the law when a man dieth in a tent (Num.xix,14), they held that only Israelites are men, quoting the prophet, 'Ye my flock, the flock of my pasture, are men' (Ezek.xxxiv,31); Gentiles they classed not as men but as barbarians."
Here is what the Talmud says about the same subject, that Gentiles are NOT MEN BUT ANIMALS. (Quoted from Kodaschim, book eight [Kerithuth} 6b p.78):
The teaching of the Rabbis is: "He who pours oil over a Goi, and over dead bodies is freed from punishment. This is true for an animal because it is not a man. But how can it be said that by pouring oil over a Goi one is freed from punishment, since a Goi is also a man? But this is not true, for it is written: Ye are my flock, the flock of my pasture are men (Ezechiel XXXIV,31). You are thus called men, but the Goim are not called men."
The Talmud teaches that if a Hebrew kills a Goi (Gentile) it is not a sin:
(Quotation from Nezikin, book five [Makkoth] 7b):
He is said to be guilty of killing "except when, in intending to kill an animal he kills a man by mistake, or intending to kill a Goi, he kills an Israelite."
To show that the de-humanization of Gentiles is not just a fringe teaching in the Talmud, I would like to quote the following passage from the Midrasch, another rabbinical set of writings:
"God created them in the form of men for the glory of Israel. But Akum (another name for Gentile, meaning 'worshippers of stars and planets) were created for the sole end of ministering unto them (the Jews) day and night. Nor can they ever be relieved from this service. It is becoming to the son of a king (an Israelite) that animals in their natural form, and animals in the form of human beings should minister unto him." (Midrasch Talpioth , fol 225d)
In the Kabbalah, Zohar, II (64b) it says:
“..... People who worship idols, and who are called cow and ass, as it is written: I have a cow and an ass....”
In the Sanhedrin (74b) Tosephoth, it says:
"The sexual intercourse of a Goi is like to that of a beast"
In kethuboth (3b) it says:
"The seed of a Goi is worth the same as that of a beast"
In Zohar (ll,64b) it says:
"Rabbi Abba says: If only idolaters alone had sexual intercourse, the world would not continue to exist Hence we are taught that a Jew should not give way to those infamous robbers. For if these propagate in a greater number, it will be impossible for us to continue to exist because of them. For they give birth to sucklings the same as dogs."
WHAT IS THE DRIVING FORCE BEHIND RACISM?
Ultimately the driving force behind all racist behavior can be traced to the Devil and his drive to conquer the planet earth and become its spiritual and physical dictator. Any serious Christian student of history can see that for many centuries Satan tried to achieve his goal by developing empires and that through wars and conquering he tried to establish a global world rule. As this method has failed, the Devil has, since the time of king Solomon, worked on the descendants of Abraham. While using the promise from God of a Messiah for Israel, Satan has perverted this teaching and instilled into the minds of the Talmudic/Kabbalistic Jews that through "works" they will be able to create a "messianic age" with themselves as the ruling "elite" over the rest of the creatures living on this earth.
Since Judaism teaches that only the descendants from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are human beings, created in the image of God, and that salvation through the Messiah is only for this group of people, THE THEOLOGICAL BASE FOR RACISM IS LAID.
That this is not just a thought held by some extremists can easily be seen in the New Testament. When Jesus came in contact with a woman of Canaan, he informed her that he was not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel (Matthew 15:24), and he compared her to a dog (verse 27). She accepted that term, but fell down and worshipped Jesus and in turn he answered her prayer and healed her daughter.
Does this mean Jesus is "RACIST?" ABSOLUTELY NOT! Jesus came to a people who had been selected to receive the Word of God, to be a light to the world and to be the vehicle through which God could send His only begotten Son to atone for the sins of the world (John 3:16) and to establish a New Covenant with a New Testament Church (John 1:1-14).
Thus the ministry of Jesus, while he walked on the earth, was not to become a world evangelist but to establish the foundation for the coming Church and to die on Calvary and be resurrected on the third day.
That Jesus had compassion and respect for non-Jewish people can be seen in Matthew 8:1-13, where Jesus heals the servant of a Roman military officer, an enemy of the Jews.
It is also very important to point out that when Abraham came out of Ur he had with him close to a thousand people who were his servants. Included in this large group were trained private soldiers (Genesis 14:14) who became part of what the Bible calls "the Hebrew children."
During the years, many individuals converted to the faith of Abraham, including Ruth who was a Moabite and is listed in the lineage of Jesus Christ (Matthew 1:5)
But salvation of a global scale for all nations was not proclaimed until after the resurrection of Jesus Christ, when he gave His disciples charge to go out into the whole world and preach to ALL NATIONS! (Matthew. 28:18-20)
God had to give the apostle Peter a special revelation before he was ready to preach the Gospel to Gentiles (Acts 11:1-18), AND TO SHOW PETER THAT GENTILES WERE NOT ANIMALS, BUT PEOPLE MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD, AND THAT JESUS HAD DIED FOR THEM ALSO. This is confirmed by the apostle Paul when he proclaims in Ephesians 3:6, "That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the Gospel" Paul calls this "the mystery of the Gospel," which had not been revealed until this time and to God's Holy Apostles (Ephesians 3:1-10).
It was now that the Church of Jesus Christ ceased to be a Jewish Church Only, and it became a Church made up of all nations of the earth (Revelation 7:9-17).
Thus God has fulfilled His promise to Abraham, when He stated:
“And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, And said, By myself have I sworn, says the Lord, for because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son; That in blessing I will/I bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because you have obeyed my voice.” Gen. 22:16-18
ISRAEL, A BLESSING AND A CURSE!
From the people of Israel the world has received its Messiah, Jesus Christ. But the people of Israel shall also give the world an Antichrist. The rabbinical leadership at the time of Jesus was already in the camp of Satan, and the risen Jesus refers to them as "the Synagogue of Satan" (Rev. 2:9;3:9).
It was Jacob Frank (1726-91 who was to foment the greatest "HATE DOCTRINE" the world has ever seen so far, and who laid the foundation for THE ILLUMINATI, COMMUNISM, FASCISM, NAZISM, AND THE ZIONIST MOVEMENT.
What the people in the world have not known is that the founders of these above political movements were all Kabbalistic Jews who had only one goal, to prepare the world for their messiah.
But some day the followers of all hate movements will be gathered in a place called “ARMAGEDDON," (Revelation 16:12-21) and at this time the King of kings and Lord of lords shall descend on this earth with his heavenly armies and once and for all destroy this hell bent crowd and their wicked teaching. (Revelation 19:11-21)
There are three major religious political movements that are fighting for power over the earth today. Listing them in strength and influence they are as follows:
Has given birth to the Illuminati, free masonry, communism, fascism, nazism, Zionism. Talmudic Kabbalistic Jews were able to seize control over Russia in 1916 and build the Soviet-Union. Through the occult society of the Thule group they built the Third Reich and put on its throne Adolf Hitler, a half Jew. In 1948 they were able to establish the political state of Israel.
2. THE IDENTITY MOVEMENT
So far this movement has not been able to seize power in any nation on the earth. Being birthed in England, their greatest growth has been in the United States. For years they were only able to operate in church settings, establishing so-called "Identity Churches." From this base of operation they have reached out via radio, TV and the printed media. For years their growth was marginal; until the "Patriotic movement' gained popularity in the United States along with the "anti-tax movement"
Identity recruiters have heavily infiltrated these two movements and have been able to recruit thousands of Americans who are concerned about God, country and morality. But they are basically limited to white Americans.
Joseph Smith received teaching about British Israelism and incorporated this into the Mormon doctrine, and thus the MORMON CHURCH is a cousin to the Identity Church.
3. THE NATION OF ISLAM
The black Muslims of America are very militant, and their teaching is one of racism, which fosters hate. This movement did not take off until after World War II, but is now rapidly growing. The Muslims are doing heavy missionary work among black American Christians, and are able to siphon off converts by the thousands. But since they are basically catering to BLACKS ONLY, their impact has not yet been felt by the entire nation. Their leaders openly talk about destroying the United States and creating a Black Nation upon its ruins. They also vent their hate toward the Jews. Each group is building its foundation upon racism, proclaiming its own supremacy, whether it is Jewish Supremacy, White Supremacy or Black Supremacy. Their theology is almost identical. The only difference is in the name of the race which is supposed to be supreme.
The result is, the United States is being carved up into three power blocks, each held together by hate for the other groups and with a desire to one day eliminate each other. Looking at this from a distance, it also resembles the formation of gangs in our large cities. The youth are divided up into gangs and taught to hate one another. Thus, the cities are paralyzed and hard to govern and control.
There is no doubt that Satan is the author of these three movements, but the question comes into my mind: IS IT POSSIBLE THAT SOME HUMAN POWER GROUP IS SECRETLY FUNDING AND CONTROLLING ALL THREE GROUPS, WITH THE PURPOSE OF WEAKENING THE UNITED STATES AND DESTROYING IT FROM WITHIN?
