Christianity’s Foundation: The Old Testament

An article in a religious magazine pictured Yahshua holding in His hands the New Testament, which, the author says, “is the Bible of Christianity.” This statement is patently wrong, for it expresses a prevailing opinion. It is accepted so generally that one wonders how many of the readers paused a moment to question the basic idea which the statement involves.

As a matter of fact, the book which Yahshua held in His hands was the Old Testament, the writings of Moses and the prophets. Luke tells of a Sabbath day in Nazareth when Yahshua went to the synagogue. He stood up to read; they gave Him the Book of Isaiah and, when He had opened its pages, He read to them passages concerning Himself. (Luke 4:16-21; Isaiah 61:1)

John records His rebuke of the antagonistic Jews:

“Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words.” (John 5:45-47)

You remember the also the story in Luke 16, which Yahshua concludes with these words:

“If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.”

Let us see what Yahshua had in His hand after His resurrection. On the Emmaus rod we read of His meeting with two disciples:

“Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow to of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.” (Luke 24:25-27)

It is obvious that Yahshua read only the Old Testament scriptures to the people of His day because the New Testament was not in existence. It was being made day by day as He trained the twelve apostles, healed the sick, comforted the weary and battled against the opposition of His foes. His life, His teachings and His plans were recorded and because the subject matter of the New Testament. They were assembled in their present form after His work was finished and He had taken His departure from the world. If Yahshua were to stand before us today, holding in His hands “the Bible of Christianity,” it would be a volume in sixty-six parts containing the complete Word of God, written in both the Old and the New Testaments or Covenants.

From the foregoing evidence one must conclude that it will be necessary to look beyond the writings of the New Testament for the foundations of Christianity. From Yahshua’s own words we learn that He bases His work upon the foundations laid by Moses and the prophets. It seems difficult for the modern Christian to estimate the importance of this truth.

During almost two thousand years of Yahshua’s transforming power in the world, He has become so transcendent that we are inclined to become unconcerned about the origin and destiny of His Kingdom as declared by the prophets. When one looks over a city as he approaches it by train, automobile or airplane, he sees only its high spots; the tower of a skyscraper, the dome of a capitol, or a church steeple. One does not see even the buildings that support the gleaming turrets and domes. Yet the tower rests upon the top floor, as each in its turn bears it weight upon the one below, until finally the whole casts its burden upon the foundation buried below the surface where it grips the stronghold of solid earth.

So it is when one thinks of Christianity. At first he sees only the figure of the preeminent Yahshua, towering above all humanity (His Israelite people, not the other races and people of the earth, for they could care less about Him), perfect, matchless in beauty (This is how the Judeo-Christian clergy describes Him, but Isaiah described altogether differently as we see in Isaiah 53:1‑11: “Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: HE HATH NO FORM NOR COMELINESS; AND WHEN WE SHALL SEE HIM, THERE IS NO BEAUTY THAT WE SHOULD DESIRE HIM. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

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. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.”), love and power; then He becomes aware of the church, imperfect, buffeted in the struggles of empires but never wholly defeated, rising to heights as far above all human organizations as its glorious Head is above the common man. Yahshua and His Kingdom challenge the imagination and fill our thoughts until we lose sight of the processes by which they have been revealed and established. We can no more separate Christ and Christianity from the foundations of the Old Testament than we can suspend the spire of a cathedral in midair apart from the great building to which it belongs.

John begins his Gospel with the assertion:

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.”

These words lift the veil and let the zealous seeker look down the shaft of time to the very foundations of the deep and hidden mysteries of Yahweh. They take one back to the beginnings; even before the morning stars sang together. Back to that remote and obscure period when time began and it could be said:

“In the beginning God made the heavens and the earth.”

Modern people with alert minds, harassed though they are with the complexities of life, need to be encouraged to read and interpret the Bible for themselves, and not let some lying, deceiving, Judeo-Christian clergyman do it. Many intelligent and sincere person “covet earnestly the best gifts.” They want something more than a casual speaking acquaintance with the personnel of the Divine realities. Perhaps they have attempted Bible study a few times, they bought some books and probably a course of studies, but could make nothing out of them. The writers of the various helps were not in agreement and the whole experiment ended in confusion and disappointment. What happened then? The chances are that the Bible was laid aside quietly, and a bit regretfully as a book to be reverenced but never understood.

There should be a solution to this problem. Fortunately there is one which works effectively. It is so simple that it involves only one process; and that is: reading the Bible. Let the Book speak for itself. In order to get the right perspective on the Bible and understand its message, it is essential to read it as you would read any other book. This is difficult to do. You may start with good intentions and then be influenced, either consciously or unconsciously, bu what others have said or written about the Book.

It staggers the mind at how many of our brothers and sisters, who call themselves “Christian” and know absolutely nothing about the Bible or who it is about and who it is to. When confronted with some scripture they always, ALWAYS attack the one who has tried to give them some knowledge. But you will see they never, one time, state what they believe to be the truth. Only that the writer is in error and is all sorts of an evil person. Which only shows their ignorance.

Oh they say they will pray for that evil person, so that their god will lead them in the path to go, but they do not pray to Yahweh they pray to a false god; one who has already led them astray. For they have been led by and listen to Jewish fables which the Scriptures tell us that will turn a man/woman away from the truth.

“I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. FOR THE TIME WILL COME WHEN THEY WILL NOT ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE; BUT AFTER THEIR OWN LUSTS SHALL THEY HEAP TO THEMSELVES TEACHERS, HAVING ITCHING EARS; AND THEY SHALL TURN AWAY THEIR EARS FROM THE TRUTH, AND SHALL BE TURNED UNTO FABLES.” (2 Timothy 4:1-4)

If I am to be a good steward to Yahweh then what am I supposed to do if I believe that the people err from the Word of Yahweh?


What reward will I get for showing them the truth and convincing them to study to make themselves approved?

“Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.” (James 5:19-20)

They are like the Pharisees, scribes and Sadducees in the time of Christ,

“For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.” (John 5:46)

Those who try to teach the truth to the lawless and deceived, those who are still in the world hate them with an undying passion, because that one points out their own failures, and for that, because of their own pride which will not allow them to see the truth, will hate him just as the world hates Christ.

“For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. NOT AS CAIN, WHO WAS OF THAT WICKED ONE (Satan, the Jews father), and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous. MARVEL NOT, MY BRETHREN, IF THE WORLD HATE YOU. We know that we have passed from death unto life, BECAUSE WE LOVE THE BRETHREN (The White Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and kindred people). HE THAT LOVETH NOT HIS BROTHER ABIDETH IN DEATH.” (1 John 3:11-14)

Which goes to show exactly what Yahweh was talking about when He was speaking these words:



This is in reference to what Yahweh said in Exodus 19:5-6: “ow therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And YE SHALL BE UNTO ME A KINGDOM OF PRIESTS, AND AN HOLY NATION. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.”

“seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame. They eat up the sin of my people, and they set their heart on their iniquity. And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings. For they shall eat, and not have enough: they shall commit whoredom, and shall not increase: because they have left off to take heed to the LORD. Whoredom and wine and new wine take away the heart. My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God.” (Hosea 4:6-12)

When told that, they grow even more belligerent and say I read everything; and that is the problem they read it, and do not understand a thing about what is written. It is beyond them, and slips by in the night so-to-speak.

There is a growing, proliferating need, for our people to know their racial and spiritual identity in the Plan of God! Millions of our White Christian Caucasian people are yearning and searching, thirsting and fainting for a deeper meaning for their life!

They are searching to find the meaning behind their existence and being as the Children of Light upon this earth. Why was I born? Where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going? What is my ultimate end? Who were my ancestors? What is God's will for my life?

These and many other questions are gripping the hearts of many of our young people! Behind all of this unrest, uncertainty, confusion, frustration and bewilderment, lies the unmistakable truth that our people are searching for their Ancestral Roots, they are searching for their Identity.


America has al­most lost two gener­ations! The present living Christian White people are a people who have been separated and estranged from their history, their culture, and their heri­tage in Jesus Christ.

We will never be able to understand how those who teach in Organized Reli­gion, can know so many Scriptures, by heart, but never come to a realization or understanding of just what the Bible truly is.

Then when the Truth is presented to them they will simply close their eyes and stop their ears so that they cannot see or hear that Truth! And begin to cry out to high heaven; I do not wish to clutter my mind with such Racist Trash, thus denying Almighty God, His Word, the Lord Jesus Christ and the History of their people Israel.

"For the Lord hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets [Clergy] and your rulers [Gov­ernment and Church Leaders], the seers [Pastors, Ministers etc.] hath he cov­ered. And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned [Clergy, Pastors, Ministers, Teachers etc.], saying, read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed...Whe­refore the Lord said, For as much as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me...therefore...their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent [cautious] men shall be hid." (Isaiah 29:10‑14)

Zechariah told us:

"But they refused to hearken...and stopped their ears, that they should not hear. Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the Lord of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets..." (Zechariah 7:11‑12)


"This is the book of the generations of Adam [his race]. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called Their name Adam, in the day when they were created." (Genesis 5:1‑2)

  Thus it is very clear, the Holy Bible, is the Book of Adam's Race. This is the declaration made in Genesis 5:1. The Bible is the family of one race, the race of Adam. This is what the Bible states about itself! So we must come to the realization that this fact becomes one of the most important of all our Christian pre-suppositions.

They have been robbed, and stripped of their racial, and spiritual inheritance by the culture distorting enemies of Christianity. Our people are lost, they have been blinded from recognizing the truth, their minds have been negated, and they have lost the ability to think conceptually, the news media, public schools, denominational pulpits, the university and college classrooms, have cut off, and blacked out of the minds, of our people, all truth and knowledge about their past heritage, duty and purpose in the plan of God. Our Christian Caucasian people, have been robbed and fleeced out of their racial and spiritual heritage, they have become chattel slaves to the elite money masters of this nation, and the world. The time has come for the Anglo-Saxon, Celtic, Germanic, Scandinavian, Nordic, Slavic and kindred people  to rise up and claim their birthright under Jesus Christ!

It becomes a foundation of truth upon which we build our faith! The implications of this Biblical Presup­position, this beginning point in our Chris­tian thinking and understanding of the Holy Bible, is crucial to the preservation of our Christian faith and of the race of Adam: the White Race!

When we understand what this Divine Truth means: "This is the book of the generations of Adam [his race]," we will see a rebirth of our Christian Faith take place in a world which denies both Jesus Christ our savior and the Bible!

When most Judeo-Christians read this much, if they read even that, they will throw up their hands in despair because of them not being able to understand these rudimentary elements of the Book. They have been taught by the Judeo-Christian clergy to park their brains at the church house door and not pick it up until they leave, so they will not question the lies and deceptions they are being fed during the services.

However, they would find that it will be a rewarding experience to try reading the Bible once with an open mind just as you would read any book on history or science. For example, the first seventeen books of the Old Testament are historical books. Then why not read them as history in the same way you would read any other history textbook? Let these books tell their own story without the aid of “fifty-seven varieties” of Judeo-Christian interpreters. The Bible will interpret itself if given the opportunity to do so. However, one must not add to, or take from, its pages if he would comprehend its story.

Where shall we start this reading tour? Logically we just start where the Bible begins, with Genesis, the history of beginnings. Before going into the contents of the Genesis, it is necessary to consider briefly the possibility of its Mosaic authorship and the probability of its historical accuracy.

Genesis and the next four books, known as the Pentateuch, claim Moses as their author? Are the persons and events in the narrative genuine? Is there any evidence that the writings are facts and not merely fiction, allegories or legends? Is there proof that the work of our historian is authentic? There is such proof and it is based u0on the type of evidence that cannot be refuted. For this information we turn to archaeology and find an amazing array of evidence to substantiate the reliability of the documents in question.

A few statements out of an abundance of material will suffice for the present. Sir Charles Marston, one of the world’s foremost authorities on archaeological research, who largely financed the excavations of the Palestine Exploration Fund in 1924-1927, and has since been prominently associated with many other expeditions in Bible lands, makes the pertinent assertions in his book, The Bible Is True, pp. 21-23, 29, 264-265:

“Nearly a century after Bible criticism had started, archaeologists first began to dig in the mounds of ancient ruins in Bible lands in order to increase existing knowledge of ancient history. So the sources of information were no longer derived from classical writers, combined with conjecture of what ought to have happened; but began to be slowly enriched by evidence left behind by those who lived in times that were mythical to Herodotus and other ancient historians.

“During the last ten years, evidence from these far earlier sources has been piling in upon us, and in order to judge this evidence rightly, and assign it to its proper place, it must first be used to rectify existing historical standards. The defective character of these latter will soon be manifest; and, since some at least are false, the historical conclusions based on them seem even more unsound than were the literary ones. ‘So it has become necessary to scrap most, if not all, of what people have learned or read in the Old Testament in colleges and seminaries, in textbooks, commentaries and encyclopedias, and go back to the original books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy and Joshua.

“There is no longer any doubt that the races who inhabited the Euharates valley, Syria, Palestine, and Egypt, in ancient times, possessed a much higher culture than has been postulated for them by Bible critics. For example, we now know that the art of writing in cuneiform on clay tablets was in general use long before the days of Abraham. Archaeological evidence has not established the fact that alphabetical writing was actually in existence in Sinai at the very time when Moses led the Children of Israel there after the Exodus from Egypt; and, further, that such writing was being used in Palestine immediately after the days of Moses.

“It would almost seem as though civilized man has always had the means for recording in writing; and did record in writing, events, laws, customs, rituals, history, etc., everything such as we find recorded in the books of Genesis, Exodus, etc. ‘How different must have been the whole course of criticism of the Old Testament had this evidence been originally available and its significance appreciated a century and a half ago!’

“The evidence for the use of writing, including alphabetical writing, both before and after Moses, now supplied by archaeology, makes conjectures about oral transmission unworthy of any further credit.

“The new facts of observation, in the case of the Bible, are the archaeological discoveries of the last ten years; and their effect upon the edifice of erudition, erected by the scientific criticism of the Old Testament, also resembles a series of earthquake shocks. Likewise this edifice is also in ruins, because it was not built on the solid rock of ascertained fact, but on the ever-shifting sands of conjecture and speculation.

“Nor must it now be overlooked that the collapse of this school of thought releases every book in the New Testament, as well as the remainder of the Old, from the cloud of materialistic doubts and uncertainties, which have been poured on them ever since this century began, and have dimmed their messages to some of our ablest minds.

“If the affirmative side of all the new evidence is now considered, the broad conclusions to be derived from it undoubtedly testify to the validity of the Old Testament narrative. And the comparison becomes the more convincing, because at times the new evidence conflicts, not with what the Bible actually says, but with what has been read into it...But so far as the contents of the Old Testament in its original Hebrew are concerned, a comprehensive survey of the evidence left behind by these contemporaries of Noah, Abraham, Moses, Joshua and Hezekiah shows that what has been found is both consistent with that sacred narrative and in confirmation of it.”

This, in light of modern archaeology, these words of Yahshua take on added significance:

“Had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he WROTE of me. But if ye believe not his WRITINGS, how shall ye believe my words?” (John 5:46-47)
