THE PROBLEM WITH ISAIAH 17:10 By: Clifton A. Emahiser
In order to understand this verse of Scripture, it is necessary to understand that the Bible is written in a special secret code so that not all who read or hear it will understand. Yes, you are reading this right, it is not intended that all who read the Bible or hear it quoted should understand it! Yes, you probably have been taught that the Bible is directed and intended to all people, but this is not so! It was not intended for the blacks of Uganda, Nigeria or the Congo! It was not intended for the Mongolian slant eyed gooks of Asia. It was not intended for the Aborigine of Australia. It was not intended for the Eskimos or Indians. It was not intended for the serpent race of Jews. Although the Scriptures have been in their, the Jew’s, hands for thousands of years, they still do not understand them. The Holy Scriptures were only intended for the White Anglo-Saxon European Caucasian Race. Oh the futile useless efforts that have been wasted in trying to convert these ethnic profane heathen. The Bible is a mystery also to the unrepentant of the Whites as long as they insist on worshipping false gods. It is only when they finally recognize Yahweh as their Father that they will ever begin to understand the message of the Bible.
I know that you have probably been taught all of your life by the churches that Christ (Yahshua) came to save all of the people on the earth, but this is not what the Bible teaches. Lets read what Mark 4: 11-12 has to say about this. Also check Matthew 1: 15-16 and John 12: 39-40.
11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: 12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.
I have a new Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, Abridged by Ralph Earle. They go on to make the claim how good and "complete" this addition is except they didn’t seem it important enough to comment on the above verses. I further checked out the parallel Scriptures in Matthew and John and there were comments made there. Commenting on Matthew of this reference book, it does correctly mention that "these words were fulfilled in the Jews." Then other comments indicate that the Jews simply "resisted the truth of God." The simple truth is: Yahshua didn’t want them for converts! The serpent seedline of the Jews simply don’t have the capacity to understand the spiritual things of the Kingdom! Yahshua said in Matthew 13: 11:
11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. (So much for "Jews for Jesus"!)
As I said in my article, "The Problem With Genesis 4:1," and it should be repeated here, "we must take error, idioms and parables into account." In this article, we are going to get into another problem of understanding the Scriptures. Much of the Bible is written in the metaphor of horticulture. Therefore we are going to take this into consideration in this article.
At this time, it would be a good idea to understand what in meant by "the metaphor of horticulture." Horticulture according to the New World Dictionary Of The American Language (if this or other dictionaries can be trusted) is: "the art or science of growing flowers, vegetables, and shrubs, especially in gardens or orchards." What we have to understand is, the Bible speaks in many parables, and the message cannot be taken literally! When we start taking these passages of Scripture literally, we are going to be misguided and become confused, and our understanding is going to leave a lot to be desired. Unless we make an honest effort to understand this language of horticulture, we simply will not be able to understand what the Bible is really saying. At this time, let’s read the portion of Scripture which is the topic of this article, Isaiah 17:10:
Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength, therefore shalt thou plant pleasant plants, and shalt set it with strange slips.
King James Version.
Sometimes the King James Version of the Bible does not always give the best rendering of the Scripture, but in this case it is excellent. Many of the other translations do not give a very good rendering on this verse for some reason. Exceptions to this are The Emphasized Bible by Joseph Bryant Rotherham and the new God’s Word (Today’s Bible translation that says what it means.). This later translation is not especially good but occasionally it makes for a good reference Bible. I will quote this verse from each of these translations.
<Because thou didst forget the God of thy salvation, And thou didst not remember> For this cause shalt thou plant very pleasant plants, And shalt thou set.
The Emphasized Bible
You have forgotten the God of your salvation. You haven’t remembered the rock, your stronghold. Instead, you have planted the best plants and have set out the imported grapevines.
Now that we have read Isaiah 17:10 from three different versions, the King James, Emphasized and God’s Word, let’s consider what is so different and outstanding about this passage. The unusual parts of this verse that stands out above the rest are the "pleasant plants" and the "strange slips." The questions then to be asked are: Who or what are the "pleasant plants"? and, Who or what are the "strange slips"? Usually the Bible answers its own questions. Let’s see if we can find the answers.
To get started, then, I found a comment in Vine’s Expository Directory in The Bible Reference Library on the IBM SoftCopy Navigator of my computer. It had this to say about the words "pleasant" and "plant": "to plant." Common in both ancient and modern Hebrew, this word is also found in ancient Ugaritic. It occurs approximately 60 times in the Hebrew Testament. The Word is used for the first time in the text in Gen 2:8 "And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden…" The regular word for planting trees in vineyards, nata`, is used figuratively of planting people: "Yet I had planted thee [Judah] a noble vine…" (Jer 2:21). This use is a close parallel to the famous "Song of the Vineyard" (Isa 5:1-10) where Israel and Judah are called God’s "pleasant planting" (Isa. 5:7) RSV)... . It then goes on to try to indicate that the strange slips would be related to "gardens in honor of Adonis," but I do not think this is what the meaning is. If Israel and Judah are "pleasant plantings", then the strange slips have to be people too. Lets see how the Bible treats Isaiah 5:7:
For the vineyard of the Lord of host is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.
You will probably notice, by now, how the Bible uses horticultural terms. Such terms as "plants" "slips" "vines" "vineyards" etc. There are other terms such as: "cluster" "sprigs" "sap" "pluck" "sow" "meal" "bud" "orchard" "blossom" "bloom" "crotch" "limb" "till" "tare" "stock" "leaves" "weeds" "bough" "shade" "prune" "trunk" "root" "stem" "twigs" "branch" "fruit" "shoot" "sprout" "seed" "tree" and many more. We will be using many of these horticultural terms in dissertation.
To understand this portion of Scripture (Isaiah 17:10), it will be necessary to study the entire 17th chapter of Isaiah. We will take this chapter verse by verse:
1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. 2 The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid.
It is important, here, to understand the background story of this passage of Scripture or we are not going to be able to understand Isaiah 17:10, our main topic. As we take this passage into account, notice that we will be finding more horticultural terms such as "ears" and "corn." Now to get started with the history surrounding the setting of Isaiah chapter 17.
Syria and Ephriam were confederate or allied against Judah at the time the prophet was writing this. And although verse 1 says "The burden Of Damascus" (which was the head city in Syria), this portion of Scripture also includes the doom of Israel. The prophet is declaring the destruction of both Syria and Israel. You will notice the term "Ephriam" is used to mean all 10 tribes of the Northern Kingdom of Israel. The era of time we are considering in this passage is when Assyria (Sennacherib and company) invaded Syria and Israel, conquered them, and then deported them. The destruction of Damascus, here foretold, happened in the reign of Ahaz (2 Kings 16:9). Damascus along with the "cities" of Aroer (a province of Syria) was to be destroyed by Assyria. Imagine the stately residential homes that would only be good for sheep-cotes after this destruction.
3 The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the Lord of host. 4 And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean. 5 And it shall be as when the harvestman gathereth the corn, and reapeth the ears with his arm; and it shall be as he that gathereth ears in the valley of Rephiam
For a little more information concerning Damascus, lets take a quote from the Adam Clarke’s commentary on the Bible, Abridged by Ralph Earle, page 577:
This prophecy by its title should relate only to Damascus; but it fully as much concerns, and more largely treats of, the kingdom of Samaria and the Israelites, confederated with Damascus and the Syrians against the kingdom of Judah. It was delivered probably soon after the prophecies of the seventh and eighth chapters, in the beginning of the reign of Ahaz; and was fulfilled by Tiglath-pileser’s taking Damascus and carrying the people captives to Kir (2 Kings xvi. 9) and overrunning a great part of the kingdom of Israel, and carrying a great number of Israelites also captives to Assyria; and still more fully in regard to Israel, by the conquest of the kingdom, and the captivity of the people, effected a few years after by Shalmaneser.
It is stated that the stronghold of Israel (the kingdom of the Ten Tribes) will also be brought to ruin along with Syria. From all of this it is stated that: the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean. This does not mean that Israel would become few in number, but they would become weak as a military force. The idiomatic meaning of verse 5 is: Assyria gathered and carried away Israel like the harvest of corn from the valley of Rephaim (land of giants) which was extraordinarily plentiful. Also in like manner Assyria would try to gather every last family or family member of Israel. Before we read this next portion of Scripture, let’s see what the Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, Abridged by Ralph Earle says on page 577 about verse 5:xxxx
5. As when, the harvestman gathereth. That is, the king of Assyria shall sweep away the whole body of the people, as the reaper strippeth off the whole crop of corn; and the remnant shall be no more in proportion than the scattered ears left to the gleaner. The valley of Rephiam near Jerusalem was celebrated for its plentiful harvest; it is here used poetically for any fruitful country.
Now let’s read Isaiah 17:6-8 as we continue with this chapter:
6 Yet gleaning grapes shall be left in it, as the shaking of an olive tree, two or three berries in the top of the uppermost bough, four or five in the outmost fruitful branches thereof, saith the Lord God of Israel. 7 At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel. 8 And he shall not look to the altars, the work of his hands, neither shall respect that which his fingers have made, either the groves, or the images.
Before making any comment on verses 6, 7 and 8, it would be well to notice the underlined horticultural terms such as "grapes" "olive tree" "berries" and "fruitful branches". These terms represent people. It means that a few scattered people would somehow escape the hand of the Assyrians. The main body of people were carried into Assyrian captivity, but here and there one or two were left behind like "gleaning grapes", but few there were to escape the Assyrian, "two or three berries in the top of the uppermost bough" (out of reach so to speak). What essentially is being said in verses 6, 7, and 8 is that while Assyria would try, in all of its power, to capture every family and family member of Israel, they would fail at this objective, leaving a few isolated families and family members to possibly escape to Judah where they could find safety. This is why later during New Testament times isolated family members of the Northern Kingdom of Israel could be found in Palestine. Luke 2:36 tells of a prophetess, one Anna, the daughter of Phanuel of the tribe of Aser (Asher), one of the Ten Northern tribes.
36 And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity.
While we are on the subject of Anna, it would be well to clear up a misconception that is promoted by some of these religious harlots called "Churches." In order to do this we will have to read Luke 2:25-39. We will then get back to Isaiah chapter 17 shortly:
25 And behold there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. 26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ 27 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law, 28 Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, 29 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: 30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, 31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people 32 A light to lighten the Gentiles (nations), and the glory of thy people Israel. 33 And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him. 34 And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against; 35 (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed. 36 And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; 37 And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. 38 And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem. 39 And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth.
Sometimes when you are researching the Bible, you encounter something of interest that just can not be overlooked. This is the case with this passage in the second chapter of Luke. It is paramount here that we give it some attention. Really it does fit with the subject matter that we are considering. First, please notice that "Simeon" was "waiting" for the "consolation" of Israel." This is important. He was not "waiting" for the "consolation" of the blacks! He was not "waiting" for the "consolation" of the Mongolians. He was not "waiting" for the "consolation" of the mud color races or some of the other subspecies, but he was "waiting" for the "consolation" of Israel, and Israel only! A lot of people, when they read the 32nd verse, think that here is where Yahweh is accepting all of these other races into the kingdom, and it just isn’t so. The Interpreter’s Bible, volume 8, page 62, has this to say about verse 33: Joseph and Mary learn for the first time that their child is to be God’s Messiah. Another explanation: Jesus’ father and mother were astonished at the declaration that he was to be "a light for revelation to the Gentiles", as well as the Savior of Israel. No doubt that Joseph and Mary would have been quite "astonished" if they would have understood it that way, but, here, the words Gentiles and Israel really mean the same thing. What a bunch of garbage! The word "Gentiles" simply means "nations" (nations of Israel that is). And Joseph wasn’t Yahshua’s father either. It will be necessary to further consider the word "Gentile" and see what it really means.
The Word "Gentile" is a misleading and confusing term. Actually, "Gentile" is a Latin term which means a non-Roman. Being that the Bible was translated from Greek into Latin, the Greeks would have used the term "barbarian" which means a non-Greek. There is a lot of confusion today as a result of these subsequent translations. In each subsequent translation, something was lost. The word "Gentile", as used in Luke 2:32, can mean race, tribe, pagan, or nation. The word in Greek is eth´-nos #1484 in the Strong’s concordance. So the word "Gentile" can mean a non-Judahite, a non-Greek or a non-Roman. Actually you could say that all the Ten Tribes of Israel became "Gentiles" inasmuch as they became pagan, and they are still pagan today. You can see, then, when it is speaking of the "Gentiles", it is speaking of Israel. Another thing to consider about verse 32 is, it may be a paraphrase. In other words, "and the glory of thy people Israel" would be a restatement of "A light to lighten the Gentiles". A paraphrase is a second statement to clarify a first statement. I don’t know why it is, but someone (like the Interpreter’s Bible here) is always trying to get the blacks or whoever else into the Kingdom, and its not going to work! Now back to Isaiah chapter 17.
In Isaiah 17, verse 8, we will notice that finally, after being routed out of their homes, the Israelites finally came to their senses and realized the futility of their pagan ways with their images and groves. But it was after the fact. They finally gained some respect for Yahweh. This assault of Assyria against the Ten Tribes is recorded in 2 Kings 17:5-6. Isaiah 17: 9 says:
9 In that day shall his strong cities be as a forsaken bough, and an uppermost branch, which they left because of the children of Israel: and there shall be desolation.
In verse 9 we see the conditions at that time in the region of Samaria as a result of the Assyrian assault, "a forsaken bough." All the cities were deserted, forsaken and in decay. The Scripture in Leviticus 18:26-28 was fulfilled:
26 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you: 27 (For all these abominations have men of the land done, which were before you, and the land was defiled;) 28 That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.
Just what are the "abominations", then, that these other nations committed? Well the 18th chapter of Leviticus list several things that Israel was not to do which were done by the inhabitants of Canaan before them. It is stated that Israel was not to uncover the nakedness of their near of kin. This would be between children and their parents. This would be between brothers and sisters. This would be between brothers in-law and sisters in-law. This would be between half brothers and sisters. This would be between grandparents and grandchildren. This would be between parent in-laws and children in-laws. This would be between aunts and uncles with nieces and nephews. This would be with a man or a woman, along with their children, and along with their grandchildren. A woman was to not to be approached as long as she was unclean. A neighbors wife or husband was not to be lain with. They were not to sacrifice their children to Molech. They were not to profane the name of Yahweh. They were not to practice homosexuality. And now we run into a problem with Leviticus 18:23.
ANOTHER SIDE STORY
In order to understand the problem that we have just run into, let’s read Leviticus 18:23 and continue to deal with it. Again we are dealing with an allegory of something having a meaning altogether different than it would appear. After we read it, we will discuss it further:
Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.
We are going to spend a little time on this one. Most commentaries will try to indicate that this verse means beastiality, but I think we will find otherwise. I am sure that the very idea of beastiality is very distasteful and would not be condoned by Yahweh anymore than homosexuality (Lev. 20:15-16). In the case of homosexuality the death penalty was imposed, and I am sure (according to Lev. 20:15-16) that the same penalty should be imposed in the case of beastiality. These are two deplorable acts. But what we are dealing with in this verse is far more serious. We are going to have to study some Hebrew words in order to get to the truth in this verse. What we are dealing with, in this verse, is race-mixing pure and simple. In getting started with understanding this verse let’s go to the Strong’s Concordance and look up the words beast and confusion:
Beast, #929, behêm-âh, bê-hay-maw´; from an unused root (probably meaning to be mute); properly a dumb beast; especially any large quadruped or animal (often collectively): - beast, cattle.
Confusion, #8397, tebel, teh-bel; apparently from 1101; mixture; i.e. unnatural beastiality: - confusion.
What we are dealing with here is race-mixing and with a little investigation we can prove it. The problem that we have here is: Shall we take this verse figuratively or literally? I checked out the word "beast" in Wigram Englishman’s Hebrew-Chaldee Concordance of the Old Testament and the words #929&930 are used 168 times and in most of these cases they means cattle or beast, or an animal. I want to show you, at this time, why I don’t believe it means "beast" or "cattle" in the form of an animal as we would think of it. You will notice here that this verse says that "it is confusion." In other words, somehow this lying with a beast is to produce some type of confusion. As far as I know there has never been recorded in the history of the world a case where such an act as a person having sex with an animal ever producing a half-human half-animal type of creature which indeed would be confusion. Obviously this verse means something else. Now lets consider, for a moment, that "beast" might have the idiomatic meaning of another race. Then the question: Does the act of interracial sexual contact produce a "mixture" (another word for confusion here)? Answer: Yes it does. Obviously, then, this is what is meant by the word "confusion." Lets rephrase Leviticus 18:23 to see if the word "mixture" makes it sound any different: Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith; neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is [mixture]. Let’s, for a moment, consider both the 22nd and 23rd verses of Leviticus chapter 18. In verse 22 Yahweh didn’t want Israel to be committing homosexuality as this would not procreate the race. In verse 23 Yahweh didn’t want Israel to commit miscegenation or interbreeding with other races as this would also destroy the integrity of the Israel race. It is stupid to believe or even consider that Yahweh was instructing the Israelites in this Scripture about sex with animals. In other words, the word "beast" here is idiomatic for persons of other races. Do you understand now why the Bible cannot be taken literally? Before we leave this subject, let’s consider another passage on "confusion." It is found in Leviticus 20:12, and reads:
12 And if a man lie with his daughter in law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood shall be upon them.
From this we should be able to see how the word "confusion" is applied in Leviticus 18:23. In this case it is not racial "confusion", but nevertheless, it is "confusion of seed" within the family unit. Now that we have cleared up Leviticus 18:23, we have mentioned all of the "abominations" for which verse 25 says, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. Now we can get back to Isaiah 17:6 where we left off.
We were discussing how there would be a few isolated families and family members that would be missed by the Assyrians. Now we come to verses 7&8, and you will notice that finally after being routed out of their homes, Israel came to their senses and began to realize the futility of their pagan ways with their images and groves and all of the perversions that go with them. It is stated that they shall look to his Maker, and shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel. Matthew Henry’s Commentary says, They shall acknowledge his hand in all the events concerning them, merciful and afflictive, and shall submit to his hand. They shall give him the glory due to his name, and be suitably affected with his providence’s. They shall expect relief and succour from him and depend upon him to help them. Yes, they will have respect for Him. Verse 8 goes on to indicate that Israel would no longer "respect" the "groves" and "images." You will notice that they are doing all of this after the fact.
At this time, I would like to quote from The Interpreter’s Bible, volume 5, pages 272-273. I don’t particularly recommend this source though, but once in a while you can find something of interest. I really am amazed at some of the garbage in the various reference books. Its kind of like eating out of a garbage can — trying to find a good morsel among all of the refuse and maggots. Can you imagine 12 volumes of this kind of material? Anyway, among all of the trash, this reference is pretty good. The thing to notice here is the fact that Isaiah must have been a husbandman or farmer familiar with horticulture. This reference reads as follows:
The Doom of Damascus. — There is a wealth of imagery in the prophet’s description of the fate of Damascus and Ephraim. Those who heard Isaiah could never complain that they could not understand him, for all his images were drawn from the life of the common people. Here we have such pictures as a deserted village, with sheep among the ruins (vs. 2); a wasting disease (vs. 4); a farmer reaping (vs. 5); the gathering of olives (vs.6). Each conveys in vivid fashion the idea of irretrievable ruin.
When you understand the background of the prophets and the Israelite people, you can better understand the reason for the language and terms they used. Not only this, but the Bible was purposely written in such a way that all who read its pages will not understand!
In verse 9 we see the conditions in Samaria as a result of the Assyrian invasion, "a forsaken bough." All the cities are deserted, forsaken and in decay. As it was stated before, they were "vomited out." And now we know why they were vomited out. In verse 9 the prophet draws a mental picture foretelling the grievous desolation which will happen to the land of Israel. A picture of deserted cities like the forsaken bough and an uppermost branch of an old decaying tree. Did you ever look at a tree in the process of dying? — how there are only leaves on just a few of the top branches? This is what the prophet is portraying in verse 9. In verse 9 the prophet sees the end of an era, and in verse 10 he will start making long-range predictions of the future of these Israelites who lived in this land. Up to now, the prophet (verses 1 to 8) has been making short range predictions concerning the invasion by Assyria. From verses 10 to 14, the prophet is considering the long-range future of Israel. Verse 10 says:
Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength, therefore shalt thou plant pleasant plants, and shall set it with strange slips.
What verse 10 is saying is: Israel, because you have forgotten Yahweh and His laws, the laws that will keep you safe and secure, and because you have not kept your mind on the Rock of your refuge, THEREFORE you will plant pleasant plants and graft strange slips to them. The "pleasant plants" are Israel’s future children — The "strange slips" are foreigners!!! There you have it, the "pleasant plants" are Israelites and the "strange slips" are other races. The prophet is predicting a time when their descendants would start race-mixing with other races. By and large this is what you see happening today. It may have happened in the past on a very small scale, but now, the floodgates have been opened and these foreign bastards are rushing in with an adulterous eye in the direction of every White woman (I was going to say: with their penises pointed in the direction of every White woman), but I am glad that I didn’t say it that way — just consider that I didn’t say it. Excuse the language, but some people don’t seem to understand unless you spell it out in plain language. The pleasant plants, then, looking from the time the prophet is writing this, is Israel’s future children. The strange slips are foreigners (non-whites). What the prophet is saying is: Israel, you will increase in descendants of pure blood, but because you no longer keep Yahweh’s laws, your descendants will, in time, intermix with foreigners (strange slips). Isn’t this what we are seeing today? If we only understood Yahweh’s laws about race, we wouldn’t be doing this! There is only one answer to this. These strange slips are going to have to be cut off before they suck all the energy from the roots and destroy the pleasant plants.
Now let’s take time to check in the Strong’s Concordance as to the meaning of the terms "pleasant plant" and "strange slips":
Pleasant, #2532, chemdâh, khem-daw´; feminine of 2531; delight:- desire, goodly, pleasant, precious.
Well it appears that we will have to check on the numbers 2531 and 3530 because 2532 is derived from them. Also we will include 2232 which is the word for "set."
#2531, chemed, kheh´-med; from 2530; delight:- desirable, pleasant.
#2530, châmad, khaw-mad´; a primitive root; to delight in:- beauty, greatly beloved, covetous, delectable thing, (X great) delight, desire, goodly, lust, (be) pleasant (thing), precious (thing).
Plants #5194, neta, neh´-tah; from 5193; a plant; collectively, a plantation; abstractly, a planting:-plant.
Set, #2232, zâra, zaw-rah´; a primitive root; to sow; figuratively to disseminate, plant, fructify :- bear, conceive seed, set with, sow (er), yeild.
Strange, #2114, zûwr, zoor; a primitive root; to turn aside (especially for lodging); hence to be a foreigner, strange, profane; specifically (active participle) to commit adultery:- (come from) another (man, place), fanner, go away, (e-) strange (-r, thing, woman)
Slips, #2156, zemôwrâh, zem-o-raw´; or zemôrâh, zem-o-raw´; (feminine); and zemôr, zem-ore´ (masculine): from 2168; a twig (as pruned):- vine, branch, slip.
You can see, from the above, that "strange slips" does indeed mean foreigners. And how do you like the different words that describe "pleasant plants."? Words like delight, goodly, pleasant, beauty, desirable, greatly beloved, precious, etc. I am sure that the "strange slips" are not beloved or desirable! It is nice to know what Yahweh thinks of His People! Now we shall go on to verse 11:
11 In the day shalt thou make thy plant to grow, and in the morning shalt thou make thy seed to flourish: but the harvest shall be a heap in the day of grief and of desperate sorrow.
As we try to understand verse 11, we have to remember that the Bible is written in symbols. We will have to ask the questions: In what day will Israel make its plant to grow? What is Israel’s plant? When is the "morning" that Israel’s seed should "flourish"? When is the harvest? When is "the day of "grief" and "sorrow"?
When it is speaking of a "day", it is not talking about a 24 hour day as we would think of a day. The "day" spoken of here is more like 2700 years. During this 2700 year span, Israel is to make its "plant" to "grow." It means that Israel is to increase in number remarkably. All those who understand the history of this period know that Jacob Israel indeed has increased dramatically. So we can understand here that "in the day" means a long period of time. It then goes on to say that "in the morning shalt thou make thy seed to flourish." The "morning" of this "day" would be the era of time that Israel migrated into Europe. Israel’s seed did grow and "flourish." Then this verse goes on to describe the end of the day at "harvest", indicating that Israel’s "seed" or "plant" would become a day of "grief and desperate sorrow." Do you know of anything more which could be described as grief (emotional suffering of bereavement) than the "pleasant plants" mixing with the "strange slips"? I cannot think of anything more sorrowful than this! The time of harvest is now. Sometimes I have to ask myself the question: How much longer is Yahweh going to put up with all of this race-mixing that is now going on? I wonder if HE is as angry now as HE was at the time of Noah. The reason for the flood, at that time, was to destroy all of the half-breeds. Lets go on to verse 12:
12 Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters.
Here is a verse that is absolutely necessary to master, or we are not going to understand this portion of Scripture! The next thing we are going to do is check all the above underlined words in the Strong’s Concordance. The problem here is: what you may think this passage says and what it really means might be two different things. We have a tiger by the tail with this one. As we examine each of these words, I think you will see what I mean:
Multitude, #1995, hâmôwn, haw-mone´; or hâmôn (Ezek. 5:7), haw-mone´; from 1993; a noise, tumult, crowd; also disquietude, wealth:- abundance, company, many, multitude, multiply, noise, riches, rumbling, sounding, store, tumult.
People, #5971, am, am; from 6004; a people (as a congregated unit); specifically a tribe (as those of Israel); hence (collectively) troops or attendants ; figuratively a flock:- folk, men, nation, people.
Noise, #1993, hâmâh, haw-maw´; a primitive root [compare 1949]; to make a loud sound (like English "hum"); by implication to be in great commotion or tumult, to rage, war, moan, clamor:- clamorous, concourse, cry aloud. be disquieted, loud, mourn, be moved, make a noise, rage, roar, sound, be troubled, make a tumult, tumultuous, be in an uproar. (Sounds like blacks or some of the other ethnics protesting).
Seas, 3220, yâm, yawm; from an unused root meaning to roar; a sea (as breaking in noisy surf) or large body of water; specifically (with the article) the Mediterranean; sometimes a large river, or an artificial basin; locally, the west, or (rarely) the south:- sea (X -faring man [-shore]), south, west (-ern, side, -ward).
Rushing, #7582, shâ’âh, shaw-aw´; a primitive root; to rush; by implication to desolate :- be desolate, (make a) rush (-ing), (lay) waste.
Mighty, #3524, kabbîyr, kab-beer´; from 3527; vast, whether in extent (figuratively of power, mighty; of time, aged), or in number, many:- +feeble, mighty, most, much, strong, valiant.
Waters, #4325 mayim. mah´yim; dual of a primitive noun (but used in a singnifying sense); water; figuratively juice; by euphemism urine, semen:- + piss, wasting water (ing, [-course, -flood, -spring]).
We should really take notice of here is the term, waters. In the Scriptures, the term waters usually means peoples. This is another use of symbolism. Unless we take the time to find out what these terms mean, we are not going to understand. If we are going to understand verse 12, we are going to have to ask such questions as, Who are the "multitude of many people"? Who are these people that make so much "noise"? What is the "rushing of nations"? What is the "rushing of mighty waters"? Let us see what we can find out about verse 12.
Now to get started with verse 12. In Psalm 2:1-3, the question is asked:
1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, 3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
Here we have a great struggle about the Kingdom of Yahweh, and this is what verse 12 is all about. The Kingdom is the main theme of the Bible. It is the war that is going on between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent, Genesis 3:15. We find ourselves entangled and embroiled in a war with the Satanic seed line, and it is a racial war. If you cannot see this war, as it is going on today, you have to be blind. Everything that is going on, politically, religiously, and monetarily is revolving around the racial issue. It should be becoming evident as to who the multitude of many people are. You might say that the multitude of many people represent the United Nations as you see it today. And who is the raging of the heathen directed against? It is directed against his anointed. Yahweh has only one people that is his anointed, and that people is Israel , the White Israel Adamic people of the world. Let’s take a look at this racial battle that is going on: It is Israel against the entire world. It is the White race opposed to all the other races. There is no room in the Kingdom for any race except the White race. It is the objective of Satan to destroy this Kingdom by whatever means possible. Satan’s plan is to destroy the Kingdom by crossbreeding the Whites with the heathen, and he is doing quite well at the present moment. This whole thing is the seat of war in this earth. If you exemplify the seed of Satan as hell, and the White seed as heaven, it is a contest between hell and heaven, and Satan has been trying to usurp and gain dominion of Yahweh’s Kingdom for a long time, it’s the whole ball game. Does Satan have a kingdom? Yes, It is the non-White races. We have to understand who is in this war, and what it is all about. It is a battle to the death. It is Satan and his heathen people (his instruments) set in array against Yahweh and His People (His instruments). Yes, it is the seed (children) of the serpent against the seed (children) of the woman. The degenerate seed of Satan are the Jews. It is the Jews who stir up the heathen. It is the heathen against Yahweh’s anointed. Everything that Satan (the Jews) does is directed toward Yahweh’s Kingdom people, Israel. The Jews rage at Yahweh’s Kingdom. The Jews fret at Yahweh’s Kingdom. The Jews gnash their teeth at Yahweh’s Kingdom. The Jews take counsel against Yahweh’s Kingdom. This is what the United Nations is all about. The United Nations is an instrument of Satan to prevent Yahweh’s Kingdom and to counsel against it.
The United Nations, in their counsels, say: Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords. This brings up the question, What does it mean by "bands" and "cords"? These are "bands" of love which we have for Yahweh and "cords" which tie us to Yahweh’s Commandments as a code for living. If Satan can break our love for Yahweh and cause us to break His Commandments, we have lost the fight, for the Commandments instruct us to keep our race pure. We better understand what the motive of the enemy is if we ever want to win this battle. It is recorded in Psalm 83:2-4 what the enemy has in mind, what he will counsel to do:
2 For, lo, thine (Israel’s) enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy hidden ones. 4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
Although the Psalmist may have been speaking about a happening which occurred to Judah, yet some things never change. Its the same enemy of Israel now as it was back then, the Edomite Canaanite Jews or whoever they can stir up against us. Lets see what the Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, Abridged by Ralph Earle has to say about this passage, page 505:
Let us cut them off. Let us exterminate the whole race, that there may not be a record of them on the face of the earth. And their scheme was well laid. Eight or ten different nations united themselves in a firm bond to do this; and they had kept their purpose so secret that the king of Judah does not appear to have heard of it till his territories were actually invaded, and the different bodies of this coalition had assembled at En-gedi. Never was Judah before in greater danger.
Its the same old "kike" conspiracy! This passage is more applicable today than it was back then. As a matter of fact, this confederacy could not have existed then as described in this passage as the only recorded offense of the Ishmaelites was the disposal of Joseph (Genesis 37: 25-28). The Ishmaelites are considered one of the confederacy, so it would have to be some future event. Obviously, then, Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, Abridged by Ralph Earle is not entirely correct in his comments. Then, too, any such confederacy as described in this passage could not have held together for long. Only with today’s United Nations can such an alliance long be held.
Lets now investigate the term, "waters." We will read Isaiah 43:2:
When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
In this verse, when it speaks of "waters" and "rivers", it means people. In this verse it is speaking of a period of time when the heathen peoples of the earth are to come in like a flood. Floods are a very destructive force so we can see that we need protection from Yahweh if we are to survive the onslaught of this thing. But we are told that "they shall not overflow thee." We need to know that when the Russian Mongols invade the United States as described in Ezekiel 38 and 39, that Yahweh will not allow them to "overflow" us. Revelation 12:15-16 also speaks of a flood, and here again it is speaking of floods of people. It also identifies the serpent (the Jews) as the moving force directing the floods of heathen peoples for the purpose of destroying the "woman" (Israel). The main objective of the serpent (the Jews) is to destroy the White Israel seed by mongrelizing them with other races.
15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. 16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood, which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
Matthew Henry’s Commentary has some nice things to say about the Israelites, and this is closely related to the two Scriptures above just quoted. When he mentions "Jacob" or "Israel", he is probably thinking that they are "Jews." There is no greater mistake that could be made! I will be quoting from volume IV, page 234:
But now, fear not, O Jacob! O Israel! I have redeemed thee, and thou art mine. Though many among them were untractable, (probably intractable, meaning stubborn) and incorrigible, yet God would continue his love and care for his people, and the body of that nation should still be reserved for mercy. ... They are God’s workmanship, created by him unto good works, Eph. ii. 10. He has created them and formed them, not only given them a being, but this being, formed them into a people, constituted their government, and incorporated them by the charter of his covenant. ... They are a people of his purchase: he has redeemed them. Out of the land of Egypt he first redeemed them, and out of many another bondage, in his love, and in his pity ... are redeemed with the blood of his Son. They are his peculiar people, whom he has distinguished from others, and set apart for himself: he has called them by name, as those he has a particular intimacy with and concern for, and they are his, are appropriated to him and he has a special interest in them. He is their God in covenant.
Up to this point we understand that Israel was removed from their land by the Assyrians because they adopted the ways of the heathen before them. They were then vomited out of the land and have never returned. We further understand that the removal was almost complete except for just a scattered few. It is also understood that because Israel would forget Yahweh and His laws, they would eventually start to mix with other races. The prophet also predicts how the heathen would organize against Israel and try to destroy her. Isaiah 17:13 goes on to say:
The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.
What we are seeing today is the heathen rushing into the United States of America and other Israel lands for the social benefits which the bleeding heart liberals are so willing to extend with the tax bill going to the working middle-class Whites. If you have seen the video, "The Border Is Open", then you know they are coming in like an invading army, and all of the so-called Churches are actually aiding them. Yahweh save us from the Churches! As yet we have not seen the last part of this verse start to happen, but Yahweh speed the day when God shall rebuke them. Yes, there is going to be a time when Yahweh, with the help of His servants (Israel), is going to put a stop to all of this multi-racialism in Israel (America). And now lets move on to verse 14 and see how it may happen:
14 And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.
Well, finally, with this verse, some justice! You can see, before this whole thing is over, there is going to be trouble. We are now in that period of time. It has gone to the point where it doesn’t seem like there is any hope, but this is not the end, this is only the beginning. Let us now contemplate just how this may all come about. Remember, we have the morning to look forward to.
SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO
At this time, I would like to relate in part to you an article that I wrote concerning the 38th and 39th chapters of Ezekiel. The 38th and 39th chapters of Ezekiel are about how Russia will invade the United States. I entitled this story, "The Problems With Ezekiel 38 & 39". You may wonder, What does this racial problem we are having now in America have to do with Russia invading the United States? I think, after we start to get into it, you will see how the invasion of Russia into the United States, as foretold in Ezekiel 39 & 39, is connected with our racial problem.
If you have read my treatise on Ezekiel 38 & 39, you are aware of the scenario of how the Tartar Russians will come to America aboard many merchant ships undercover. That they will be off-loaded on to railroad cars, made up into large trains and will make their way to a place called Flaming Gorge in Wyoming high in the Rocky Mountains where they will become trapped and destroyed by Yahweh and they will number in the hundreds of thousands. If you want to know more about how the Russians will invade the United States, you will have to get a copy of my "The Problems With Ezekiel 38 & 39."
At this time we are going to consider five verses found in Ezekiel 38 and 39 concerning the word "heathen."
Ezekiel 38:16, And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
Ezekiel 39:7, So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel.
Ezekiel 39:21, And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.
Ezekiel 39:23, And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
Ezekiel 39:28, Then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.
We shouldn’t stop with verse 28, but we should include verse 29 also because it is a very important verse in the Bible:
Ezekiel 39:29, Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord God.
This last verse is a very important verse because it is the point in time that Yahweh will no longer hide his face from us. If He is no longer to hide His face from us, He will be with us. This will be the day that we have longed for so long. This will be a very interesting turning point for Israel, but for the heathen it will be another story. I know it sounds crazy, but, we should really thank Yahweh for all of these foreigners that are making their way to our country. If they were to stay here always, it wouldn’t be so nice, but this is not the way it is going to be. Up to this point, whenever I would see one of these foreigners when I would go out shopping or driving, and see some of the things I would rather not see, it was depressing. From now on, when I see these foreigners in our country, and I know they shouldn’t be here, I am going to praise Yahweh! I am not going to praise Yahweh because they are here, but I am going to praise Yahweh because they are here to see a big show.
What do you think these foreigners are going to think when they see all of these Russians get killed in the mountain passes of Wyoming????? — and they know they are next!!!!! Don’t you think they are going to make some PDQ plans to go back where they came from????? They won’t even take time to pack all the loot that they got from the welfare office. They won’t even take the time to return to the home that HABITAT remodeled for them and financed at a preferred interest rate. They probably will return to their garage which HABITAT built for them with the donated labor of the Church that sponsored them to get their new car which the bank arranged for them at low interest in order to get on their way. All of those cat and dog eaters will be on their way home, wherever that is. Do you even begin to understand what this coming event in the future is going to be like? Its hard to even imagine all of the ramifications that this will bring about. I can just see, in my mind, all of the long lines at the airports where they will be waiting to get tickets to fly home. I can envision multitudes of people racing hell bent for the Mexican border, headed southbound. They will look like a stampede of buffalo. You won’t have to ask them to leave, they won’t want to stay. This same thing probably will be happening in all Israel lands. Can you imagine traveling to Detroit and not finding any NAACP raccoons????? Boy you talk about heaven!!!!! But some of our people are going to have some problems too!!!!! How about all of these half-breeds they have adopted or produced through interracial marriages????? When all of this happens, they are going to have a gigantic problem and they are going to have to think and act fast, quicker than PDQ. Oh what a time this is going to be!!!!! I can hardly wait!!!!! The only reason that Yahweh is allowing them to come here is to see the big show. From now on, when we see these foreigners, don’t let us get discouraged, let’s get excited. Lets look forward to the big show!!!!!
MORE FECES TO HIT THE FAN
It is stated in Ezekiel 39:29 that "Neither will I hide my face any more from them." There are very important implications here. The implications are that the Radiant Glory of Yahweh will be present among His People. This will be so totally frightening to these other races that they will not be able to abide by His Presence. His Presence will actually make them sick. Not only will they fear a like fate as the Mongolian hordes that will be destroyed on Israel’s mountains, they will also fear the Presence of Almighty Yahweh. You will see an altogether different attitude of these cocky presumptuous pushy NAACP raccoons that strut like roosters when they find themselves in the Presence of Yahweh. The White people will be the only people who will be able to stand in His Presence, and that with reverence.
This Presence will be like the pouring out of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost except it will be on a much larger scale. The Day of Pentecost was just an earnest (sample) of things to come. Verse 29 makes it appear in the past tense, but it should probably read I will pour out my spirit upon the house of Israel. If this future "pouring out" is anything like the Day of Pentecost, it is hard to even imagine the type of event this will be. I am sure that all of these heathen foreigners will not want to stay around in an atmosphere like this. You can be sure they are going to make fast tracks out of Israel countries. This future "pouring out" will be what the Bible refers to as "the latter rain." (Joel 2:23)
Yes, I know that the Charismatics say that they have it all and they try to apply it to all races, but there isn’t anything more phony on the face of the earth. When they see the real thing, they will cover their faces in shame and cry for mercy from Yahweh. This time is going to be like when the Philistines captured "the ark of God" (1 Samuel 5:1) and they took the ark into "the house of Dagon", and the next day they found Dagon flat on his face. And, then, Yahweh smote the people of Ashdod with hemorrhoids ("emerods"), bleeding hemorrhoids at that, piles! When these foreign heathen come into the Presence of Yahweh, the shock of it will probably cause them to get piles too — and that won’t be the only piles they will have in their pants! I wonder how raccoons strut with hemorrhoids? You know, piles really hurt — feels like someone has a hold on you with a clothespin and you can’t get away! When you go messing around with Yahweh’s people, there is going to be hell to pay.
MORE ON ISAIAH CHAPTER 17
We should now go back to Isaiah 17:14 and comment on that verse. It starts out: And behold at eveningtide trouble. The "eveningtide" of this 2700 year day is now at this present time. This time of "trouble" is called "Jacob’s trouble." It has been evening now for some time. Jacob’s troubles have been the War of 1812, the Civil War, World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam etc. Also Jacob’s troubles include all of the financial problems Jacob Israel has experienced including the Great Depression. Everyone, almost, seems to be looking forward to some future time when the so-called Antichrist is supposed to give the Jews a hard time. Its not the Jew’s troubles, its the White Anglo-Saxon Jacob Israel’s troubles. I wonder how much more "trouble" does one expect "Jacob" to have anyway?
Verse 14 says in part, and before the morning he is not. We should take notice here that this is to take place before the "morning." We have to take account here also that this is not the same morning as spoken of in verse 11. The "morning" of verse 14 is part of the following day. So let’s make sure that we understand that it is two different mornings! Evidently this second "morning" is the period of time that Israel will be reuniting its relationship with Yahweh, when His People return to a lifestyle of Holiness, a time of restoration of the laws of Yahweh. Well this gives us an indication of when, but, Who is the "he" that it is talking about? We have to go back to verse 13 to see who the "he" is. The "he" is the "nations" (heathen) that is "chased as the chaff — before the wind. "Chaff " is a very good term for these "heathen" as it means worthless debris. Lets check out the term "chaff " in the Strong’s Concordance.
Chaff, #4671, môts, mots; or môwts (Zephaniah 2:2) motes; from 4160; chaff (as pressed out, i.e. winnowed or [rather] threshed loose): chaff.
Chaff is also a horticultural term for it is the waste product from the threshing process. If you think of the good part of the grain as being Israel and the chaff as being other heathen races, it is well to have a threshing in order to get rid of the chaff or worthless debris. The "wind" or "whirlwind" would be the Spirit of Yahweh described in Acts 2:2 a rushing mighty wind. Whether the Spirit of Yahweh is friendly or hostile depends whether one is Israel or non-Israel. You can say good-by to all of the foreign doctors too. It says in verse 14, "he is not." In other words, the foreigners will be a thing of the past. You talk about segregation, we’re going to have it!
Then continuing in verse 14, This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us. Included among the "chaff" will be the Jews. Of all the heathen foreigners, they have done more to "spoil" and "rob" us above all the others. They have spoiled and robbed us in so many ways that it would take several thousands of books to explain it. Can you imagine what it is going to be like without any Jews around? Well, this is what the verse is saying.
While we are looking forward to the time when he is not, meaning primarily the Jews, we should take account of why Yahweh allowed the Jews and other heathen to be among us in the first place. It is heartening to know that the Jew’s portion and lot is to be destroyed forever as stated in Isaiah 17:14. Isaiah 42:24 says:
Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the Lord, he against whom we have sinned? For they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law.
And we have to ask: What are Israel’s sins? In Isaiah 59:2-15 there is a list of 21 sins of Israel. It is not a very nice list and it is something for which Israel should not be very proud. But in spite of it, Yahweh promises to save Israel in the end.
Your hands are defiled with blood.
Your fingers (are defiled) with iniquity.
Your lips have spoken lies.
Your tongue hath muttered perverseness.
None calleth for justice.
(None) pleadeth for truth.
They trust in vanity.
(They) speak lies.
They conceive mischief.
They bring forth iniquity
They hatch cockatrice’ eggs.
(They) weave the spider’s web.
Their works are works of iniquity.
(The) act of violence is in their hands.
Their feet run to evil.
They make haste to shed innocent blood.
Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity.
Wasting and destruction are in their paths.
The way of peace they know not.
There is no judgment in their goings.
They have made crooked paths.
We certainly cannot blame Yahweh for our problems for we certainly brought them on ourselves. From viewing the situation as it exist today, I cannot see where we have improved very much! Yet, we are still His chosen and for some reason He chooses to save us from our enemy. Evidently Yahweh is still in control and knows how to deal with His People thus the statement: Has the Lord’s hand waxed short? He is going to bring His People to the place where He wants them while, at the same time, destroying the enemy! This will be no less than a miracle. These sins of ours can be compared to a partition wall separating us from Yahweh. What a terrible thing is sin! Twenty seven hundred years of separation. What a black bill of indictment against our people. It all started with thoughts of iniquity and gratification for some base lust. Then these thoughts of iniquity ripened and brought forth sin. These thoughts were like hatching the eggs of a poisonous adder (the thoughts of the wicked), like a spider’s web which would kill whoever it came in contact with. Oh the lies that have been told with the intention of killing the reputation of a just person. Oh how the crooked and perverse tongue (backbiters and whisperers) lash out drawing the life’s blood, innocent blood. And in the face of this, no call for justice.
HOW IT MAY ALL END
In the 5th chapter of Micah we have an interesting picture of what the heathen may be facing in this country. We will consider verses 7 through 15. There are several very interesting things that are to happen at the time of this prophecy’s fulfilling. Lets read this portion of Scripture at this time:
7 And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people as a dew from the Lord, as the showers upon the grass, that tarrieth not for man, nor waiteth for the sons of men. 8 And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion among the beast of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep: who, if he go through, both teareth in pieces, and none can deliver. 9 Thine hand shall be lifted up upon thine adversaries, and all thine enemies shall be cut off. 10 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord, that I will cut off thy horses out of the midst of thee, and I will destroy thy chariots: 11 And I will cut off the cities of the land, and throw down all thy strong holds: 12 And I will cut off witchcrafts out of thine hand; and thou shalt have no more soothsayers: 13 Thy graven images also will I cut off, and thy standing images out of the midst of thee; and thou shalt no more worship the work of thine hands. 14 And I will pluck up thy groves out of the midst of thee: so will I destroy thy cities. 15 And I will execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the heathen, such as they have not heard.
It says in verse 7 that Jacob (Israel) shall be in the midst of many people. The people of Yahweh shall be surrounded by many heathen. The people born from above will be scattered among the earthy. Israel will be like drops of dew, as droplets of pure water which represents purity of race. Israel will be as the salt of the earth that is not diluted racially. People of the Covenant under contract to Yahweh, destined to live up to the letter of their oath. Also they are in His Favor. Did you ever see the dew of the morning with the sun’s rays shinning on the droplets glistening in beauty, each one like a gem stone? So, too, does Israel glitter in beauty compared to the heathen. Yahweh’s children are dispersed the world over as precious gem stones amidst many people. They are born from above and therefore are not of the earth as the other races. They shall be as numerous as the drops of dew in a summer’s morning. They are pure and clear as the dew, not muddy or corrupt as the other races. And as the showers refresh the grass, so Israel brings refreshment to their surroundings. And, Who is this remnant of Jacob? It is the White Anglo-Saxon Germanic Scandinavian people of today. Israel, a people mild and gentle in their behavior.
While they are mild mannered, yet they are as strong as a lion. They will tread down and tear in pieces that none can deliver when they are aroused. A time is coming when Israel’s enemies and adversaries will be destroyed by the lion. Isn’t it about time we start tearing at the enemy and drawing some blood? Lets live up to what we are.
When we come to the 10th verse, there is a change of topic subject matter. The prophet changes course and makes some very interesting predictions. The next important thing to do is figure out the time period for when these predictions are to take place. To do this we are going to have to go to the 15th verse. Verse 15 says: And I will execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the heathen, such as they have not heard. You can see here that it is the appointed time when Yahweh "executes vengeance — upon the heathen." The heathen surely have not received this vengeance as yet at the time of this writing. If the heathen would have received this vengeance, they would not get out of their place. When you see these cannibals strutting around making all kinds of uncouth gestures (rude and vulgar), you know they have not learned where there place is. Surely their place in not in some White woman’s bedroom where you can find them today.
From verses 9 to 15 the following predictions are made concerning Israel’s future:
1 Horses cut off and chariots destroyed in Israel.
2 The strong holds of the cities are to be thrown down and cut off.
3 The soothsaying and witchcrafts to be cut off.
4 Graven images are to be destroyed in Israel.
5 The groves where sex is worshipped will be plucked up.
6 Heathen will receive vengeance as never before in recorded history.
The time for these above events is in our present era. As you see the heathen gathering to America and other Israel countries, you can know the time for these things are near. Now lets consider these things item by item.
The 10th verse says, I will cut off the horses out of the midst of thee, and I will destroy thy chariots. Israel has always had a love affair with their horses and chariots. They have always cherished and admired their vehicles of conveyance. They have always kept them in an immaculate condition, decorating them with colorful designs and trying to outdo their neighbor. In the area of the Altai Mountains located in the Siberian regions of western Mongolia east of the Arel, Caspian and Black Seas in what is known as the Steppes of Russia north of the Gobi Desert archaeologists have unearthed the tombs of the Scythians which occupied that area between the 3rd and 5th centuries A.D. The Scythians were Israelites. Archaeologists discovered these grave sights about 1865. In these tombs, they have found as many as 10 horses buried with their masters. Also they have found all kinds of intricate carved wooden harnesses, elaborately decorated saddle blankets and objects to adorn their steeds with. There was a television special showing all of this recently on Ancient Lives. When you look around today at how some of the automobiles are adorned, you have an idea of what it would have been like back then. But as you know, the automobile has replaced the horse and carriage, and that is probably what it is talking about in verse 10. Now it says that the horses and chariots will be cut off in Israel, so it is probably means automobiles. Actually there is no want for owning an automobile, but the automobile industry of the United States has practically been shut down. The economy of the United States was built around the automobile industry and by bringing in all of these autos from foreign nations, it has cut off the horses and destroyed the chariot making business. You can see, then, the horses and chariots have been cut off just as the prophet said they would be!
In verse 11 it says, I will cut off (destroy) the cities of thy land, and throw down all thy strong holds. Question: Is it mainly going to destroy the buildings in the cities or is it going to mainly destroy the people who live in them? Our cities have been a garbage collection points for all of the riffraff from every God knows where. I believe it means the refuse that occupy the cities. And what do we have in the cities? A lot of gangs, drug dealers pimps and queers. Do you think that these may be some of the strong holds that will be thrown down? How about the halls of Freemasonry (always on a second story or on a high place)? How about the so-called charitable Foundations? How about the Mormons? How about the Anti-Defamation League of the B’nai B’rith? How about the Theosophical Society? How about the Knights of Columbus? How about the American Liberties Union? How about the United Nations with all of its spin-off organizations? How about all of the Banks? How about the American RED Cross? How about the Council of Christians and Jews? How about the AMA? How about the AF of L and CIO? How about the World Council of Churches? How about Brooking Institute? How about the Catholic Church and all of its little Protestant Daughters? How about the CIA? How about the CFR? How about all of your local schools which teach sex education and sensitivity training? How about the YMCA’s? (That is where the White children can go to play and swim with the cannibals, that’s what they were designed for.) How about all of the colleges and universities with their RED professors? How about the FBI? How about the ATF? How about the DEA? How about the NAACP? How about HUD? ... and all the other Social Agencies? How about the Federal Reserve Bank? ... and many many more? Are these the strong holds of the cities that will be thrown down? Yahweh speed the day!
Then in verse 12 it says, And I will cut off witchcrafts out of thine hand, and shalt have no more soothsayers. Yes, Yahweh will close up and destroy these Baal worshipping "Churches" and there will be no more soothsaying ministers or priest holding a magic spell over the people of Israel. The teachings of these so-called "Churches" can be traced back to the Baal worship that Jezebel brought into Israel. That makes the ministers and priest of these so-called "Churches" the same as soothsayers! To understand this connection with the Baal religion, let’s go to a book entitled "Freemasonry, An Interpretation" by Martin L. Wagner. On pages 200-202 he says:
The Sidonian mysteries to which Mr. Sickels directs us if we would get the "thought" of Freemasonry, were one of the several variants of the Baal cult that prevailed in the Canaanite lands. This Baal worship was the Canaanite type of sun worship and was decidedly phallic. The Baal was the male principle of life and reproduction, and was viewed as abiding in the sun as his heavenly abode, and in the phallus as his earthly abode. The solar disk was the symbol of the former, and a slender stone placed upon or near the altar, was the symbol of the latter. His consort was the earth, the nourishing principal. The symbol of this was the ashera or poles, and a small cone-shaped stone, placed on or near the altar, representing the female breast. In this cult there was a close connection in thought and rite between the sun as a generative deity, and the earth as a nourishing deity, and the phallus as a generative organ, and the breast as a nourishing organ. The rites consisted in men and women exchanging garments, and in exposing to Baal that part of the body which decent people take the utmost precaution to conceal. These rites were accompanied by immoral and licentious indulgences at his shrine, for Baal was the patron of the grossest sensuality and of systematic prostitution. The relation of the Baal and his mate the Ashera, was set forth as the example and the motive for unbridled sensuality. It encouraged and made lawful and right, sexual uncleanness. This cult was introduced into Israel by Jezebel, the wife of Ahab, who was an ardent devotee (and a Jew). It aroused the vigorous opposition of Elijah and Elisha, and culminated in the overthrow and captivity of Israel.
The Mithraic mysteries were the institutions in which the worship of the sun in its Persian aspect, became concrete. The worship of this god can be traced back to a very early period, when it presents itself as a pure monotheism. It came in contact with other faiths and by assimilation of other elements degenerated into a sensual and debasing nature worship. It became very popular, and employed a very elaborate ritual and expressed its ideas of the divine nature in an extensive symbolism. The worship was very probably conducted according to elaborate ritualistic prescriptions.
The rites of Mithras were celebrated in a cave. Mithras proper was the generative principle in the sun, and always conceived of as distinct from the sun, but clothed in the light of the sun. The God was conceived as always performing the mystic sacrifices through which the good will finally triumph. The human soul was viewed as separated from the divine nature, to which it can only re-ascend through a series of probationary degrees of penance, scourgings and fastings. The first of these was the lowest and admitted those who passed it as soldiers fighting for Mithras. The second and third degrees were that of the Bull and the Lion. Other grades could be passed which if accomplished the soul became pure fire, and reunited with the divine nature. This cult spread over the Roman world during the second and third centuries after Christ, and its influence was felt for a long period throughout Europe.
What I am trying to do here is show you how this Baal religion of Mithras made its way into the Roman Church and most of it is practiced both by Catholics and Protestants today. The next quote will be from a book entitled The Worship of Augustus Caesar by Alexander Del Mar on page 193:
A. D. 220, Rome. - Establishment of sun-worship, or Mithrasism, as the official religion of Rome, under Elagabalus. See "Middle Ages Revisited," Appendix R. See also B.C. 389 for dated coins of Elagabalus
This is not the only religion which had its affect on Rome. As we will see, there was another religion that had its origin in Babylon which had an influence on the so-called "Church". We will now quote from The Two Babylons by Alexander Hislop on page 240-242:
Still the Sovereign Pontiff of Rome, even after the Etruscan idolatry was absorbed into the Roman system, was only an offshoot from the grand original Babylonian system. He was a devoted worshipper of the Babylonian god; but he was not the legitimate representative of that God. The true legitimate Babylonian Pontiff had a seat beyond the bounds of the Roman empire. That seat, after the death of Belshazzar, and the expulsion of the Chaldean priesthood from Babylon by the Medo-Persian kings, was at Pergamos, where afterwards was one of the seven churches of Asia. There in consequence, for many centuries was "Satan’s seat" (Rev. ii. 13). There under favour of the deified kings of Pergamos, was his favourite abode, there was the worship of Æsculapius, under the form of the serpent, celebrated with frantic orgies and excesses, that elsewhere were kept under some measure of restraint. At first, the Roman Pontiff had no immediate connection with Pergamos and the hierarchy there; yet in course of time, the Pontificate of Rome and the Pontificate of Pergamos came to be identified. Pergamos itself became part and parcel of the Roman empire, when Attalus III., the last of its kings, at his death, left by will all his dominions to the Roman people, B.C. 133. For some time after the kingdom of Pergamos was merged in the Roman dominions, there was no one who could set himself openly and advisedly to lay claim to all the dignity inherent in the old title of the kings of Pergamos. The original powers even of the Roman Pontiffs seem have been by that time abridged, but when Julius Cæsar, who had previously been elected Pontifex Maximus, because also, as Emperor, the supreme civil ruler of the Romans, then, head of the Roman state, and head of the Roman religion, all the powers and functions of the true legitimate Babylonian Pontiff were supremely vested in him, and he found himself in a position to assert these powers. Then he seems to have laid claim to the divine dignity of Attalus, as well as the kingdom that Attalus had bequeathed to the Romans, as centring in himself; for his well-known watchword, "Venus Genetrix," which meant that Venus was the mother of the Julian race, appears to have been intended to make him "The Son" of the great goddess, even the "Bull-horned" Attalus had been regarded. Then, on certain occasions, in the exercise of the high pontifical office, he appeared of course in all the pomp of the Babylonian costume, as Belshazzar himself might have done, in robes of scarlet, with the crosier of Nimrod in his hand, wearing the mitre of Dagon and bearing the keys of Janus and Cybele. Thus did matters continue, as already stated, even under so-called Christian emperors; who, as a salve to their consciences, appointed a heathen as their substitute in the performance of the more directly idolatrous functions of the pontificate (that substitute, however, acting in their name and by their authority), until the reign of Gratian, who, as shown by Gibbon, was the first that refused to be arrayed in the idolatrous pontifical attire, or to act as Pontifex. Now from all this it is evident that, when, Paganism in the Roman empire was abolished, when the office of Pontifex Maximus was suppressed, and all the dignitaries of paganism were cast down from their seats of influence and power, which they had still been allowed in some measure to retain, this was not merely the casting down of the Fiery Dragon of Babylon. It was just enacting over again, in a symbolical sense, upon the true and sole legitimate successor of Nimrod, ...
Now to quote from another source concerning how the Babylonian Nimrod cult got into the Catholic Church and subsequently into the Protestant Churches and it is still there today. The next quote will be from the Dake’s Bible. One word about the Dake’s Bible though: while there are a lot of interesting notes in it, you have to be careful with it. It is not recommended for the beginner as it can lead one astray on some subjects. On the subject we are considering, it is pretty much correct. It is hoped, that, at this point, you can begin to understand what verse 12 is saying when it says I will cut off witchcrafts. We will be quoting from page 309 in the New Testament:
Her name is MYSRERY BABYLON indicates she is not literal Babylon. The word mystery identifies her with the religious rites and mysteries of ancient Babylon
According to Hislop’s "The Two Babylons" which quotes 260 sources, the ancient Babylonian cult, started by Nimrod and his queen Semiramis, spread among all nations. The objects of worship were the Supreme Father, the Incarnate Female, or Queen of Heaven, and her Son. The cult claimed the highest wisdom and the most divine secrets. Besides confession to priest there were many mysterious rites, Julius Caesar became head of the Roman branch of the Babylonian Cult in 63 B.C. Other emperors held the office until 376 A.D. when the emperor Gratian, for Christian reasons refused it because he saw that Babylonianism was idolatrous. Demasus, bishop of the Christian church at Rome, was elected to the headship in 378 A.D. and from here on Babylonianism and organized Christianity became one. The rites of Babylon were soon introduced into the Christian church. Heathen temples were restored, beautified, and their rituals encouraged. Worship and veneration of images, saints, relics, private confessions, penances, scourgings, pilgrimages, sign of the cross, Christmas, Lady Day, Easter, Lent, and other pagan rites and festivals, little by little, became a part of Christian worship.
I hope, by this time, that we are getting a good mental picture of what Israel’s witchcraft’s were and are all about. We should have a better idea of what Micah 5:7-15 is talking about. Can you imagine what America and other Israel nations are going to look like after the Presence of Yahweh enters into our lands? Think of all pagan symbols that are going to be thrown down, crashing to the ground in pieces. I don’t think I would want to be standing under a Church steeple when all of this happens! And, How about the groves (Masonic Temples)? How about all of the phallic stones in the various cemeteries? There might even a few objects around our homes that will fall flat on their faces. Do you think that this will finally impress Israel? Yes, I think it really will. Israel will then understand that we are a race, not a religion. I am not a religionist, I am a racist! — I discriminate! Well, this is not all, there is more. At this time, I would like to consider the Altar of Zeus.
ALTAR OF ZEUS
We are now going to look into another aspect which has, in the past, had an influence on Israel, that is the Altar of Zeus. The Altar of Zeus is mentioned in the Bible, Revelation 2:13, as "Satan’s seat." I think you will find the following very interesting. We are first going to quote Bertrand L. Comparet. Comparet did a series of studies on the book of Revelation. I will be quoting from tape #1 of a series of 14 tapes. Because the sound modulation on these tapes are very poor, it may not be an exact quote, but it will be very close to almost every word he said.
At the start, succession to the throne was by lawful inheritance. Then we reached a period which was pretty common in ancient monarchy, when there was somebody else who stood a little farther down the line, but he would inherit the throne if you died. And a good many ancient kings were even murdered by their own sons who wanted to take over the throne. And if he wasn’t quite that closely related to you, he definitely had no scruples about getting somebody to put a little poison on your breakfast some morning. Then there came a period when there was a scramble to seize the throne by military power. As an emperor died, usually by assassination, the one who could get the support of the sufficiently large percentage of the army was the one who was able to take the throne. And then it reached the point where the army saw — and since they were the ones who made emperors anyway — in fact, they deposed of one or two also getting dissatisfied — but they didn’t need to wait until they found some ambitious person wanting their support, they could pick their own emperor and put him on the throne. And it was during this period, when it was a general scramble for power — this intrigue going on within the army to see who could do away the loyalty of the army from somebody else.
Now Constantine was one of those emperors who gained the throne through the military, and well, he had about a half dozen or so competitors. You’ve been told before, of course, that the most vigorous growth of the Christian Church has always been during a period of persecution. Those who were in it, only to go along for the ride, didn’t have what it takes, and they dropped out. And the ones that had the courage and the enthusiasm were the ones that made up the Church, and they were not able to attract enough like themselves to keep it growing. So by Constantine's time, it was estimated that not too far below half of the population of the Roman Empire were at least nominally Christian followers of Jesus. Now Constantine was not a man of great religious favors, but if you could get support of one single block who will represent half the population to begin with in addition to whatever breaks you could get by political methods, you were in a position to gain power, Were You not?
So still having the support of the army who were loyal to him because he was a great general, he suddenly announced he had a vision. That against the clouds of the sky he saw there a cross and over it the motto, "In this sign conquer", so he was a "Christian". So there, "lend your support to me you Christians." Well, they did. He certainly couldn’t be worse than any of the others, and probably not as bad. So they backed him, and he did gain the throne. And he immediately published this Edict of Toleration that Christians could not be persecuted for their religion in 313 A.D.
Now he remained a pagan, a sun worshipper, for some time after that. In fact, it wasn’t until about 330 A.D. that he became "Christian" enough to attend Christian religious services. And, at that time, he issued another edict which made "Christianity" the official religion of the Roman Empire. So with this Constantine, the persecution came to an end. Now we come to the third church in this series, the Church at Pergamos. Revelation 2, verses 12-17
12 "And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; 13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth. 14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication (race mixing-explanation mine). 15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolatans, which things I hate. 16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. 17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone, a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
You really need to know something about ancient history to understand this one. The city of Pergamos was not of great importance. In ancient days, each individual city was apt to be a kingdom by itself. Instead of a mayor, it had a king. And even when it was swallowed up in an empire, why the head of these subordinate cities were normally tributary kings. They had to pay tax tribute and furnish an army when needed. and so on, but they still held the title of king as a general rule. So Pergamos, while a kingdom, was not of any great importance or territorial area. Until their first king of any great importance, Attalus the first, who reigned from 241 to 149 B.C., began their expansion from Gaul, which is the territory that today we call France. From Gaul there came an expedition of Gauls landing in Asia Minor. Now we know, of course, that in studying the history of the migrations of the Israel people, from the time they were settled around the southern end of the Caspian Sea, and their name became Scythians. But they came in a series of waves north into the Balkans and then angling up north and west across Europe. One of the earliest of these waves had gotten as far as France where their people were known as Gauls , but they were Scythian Israel. And some of them decided they were going back home, and they started an expedition to go back and retake Palestine, and on their way they landed in Asia Minor intending to march the rest of the way and see if they could pick up allies as they went. And king Attalus of Pergamos defeated this invasion of Gauls about 235 B.C. and compelled them to move away from his own city and settle in Galatia, a region in central Asia Minor, and called Galatia because of the Gauls that had settled there. Remember that Paul wrote an epistle to the Galatians which is in your Bible, and it has been generally supposed by many that it was written to these particular Galatians who were settled in the interior of Asia Minor, but a great many of the best Bible students have said, "No, the particular Gauls that he was writing this to were not the Gauls from Asia Minor, they were the Gauls settled in France, in the nation of Gaul there."
But, anyway, this king Attalus the first was the one responsible for the settlement in Galatia as he stopped the invading army of Gauls. Now Pergamos during the years from 197 to 159 B.C., greatly increased in size and importance as a kingdom by alliance with Rome. The Roman Empire was still expanding, and every time the Romans came through with an army marching out to make more conquest in Asia, why he rose some troops and went along as an ally, and as a reward for that, he was given some portion of the additional territory. So with this, he built up a kingdom here of considerable importance.
In the city of Pergamos, He built a great altar 40 feet high dedicated to Zeus the savior, and that quite possibly is what was referred to here as Satan’s throne. But there are other reasons for calling this the throne or capital city of Satan at the time, as we’re soon going to absorb it. The third important king, Attalus the third,who ruled from 138 to 133 B.C., at his death, bequeathed to the Empire of Rome, (It was still a republic, you remember.), but to the Empire of Rome he bequeathed his kingdom, and one thing more, his title of Pontifex Maximus. Now lets find out something about these things.
On the fall of Babylon, when he was conquered by the Medes and Persians, the priest of the Babylonian religion which had tremendous control of things in Babylon knew they were going to have quite a rough going under these new conquerors, so they moved out. They fled, they took with them their religion, and they settled for their headquarters in the town of Pergamos.
There was one reason perhaps for selecting it, Pergamos already was famous for certain things. It was a center of worship of Æsculapius, the healer. They had a shrine to him, and a school of medicine, and the serpent was the emblem of Æsculapius, and you note that today the emblem of the medical profession is a staff with two serpents twined around it because you will find that from earliest times in the pagan religions one who was especially a healer was Æsculapius who’s emblem was the serpent. The worship of Æsculapius was conducted with orgies, so common in Asiatic religions, so the priest of the Babylonian mystery religion found a home there, and would find a people among whom they could readily make converts. Now this matter of the title of Pontiff, that was the title of the more important priest of Babylon, and when they came to Pergamos, they brought the title with them.
When the king bequeathed the title of Pontifex Maximus, the greatest of the Pontiffs to Rome, why, it passed to Rome. They organized there a college of pontiffs, four in number, presided over by a Pontifex Maximus. Later the number was increased to fourteen plus a Pontifex Maximus. Now among the pagan priest in Rome, the two highest out of the four highest classes of priest were the pontiffs and the augurs. We know from the study of ancient history, how much importance was attached to many of the pagans to try to predict the future through augury. The priest were supposedly able to predict the future by recognizing omens which were favorable or unfavorable. In some instances they would watch the birds flying overhead. A bird flying east might have a very different significance than a bird flying southwest for example. A flock of birds staying compactly together had a different meaning than a flock that scattered. And hardly ever did a king start out on a war without going to the priest to determine whether the omens were favorable or not. Another way of determining this was to cut open a sacrificed animal and examine the entrails in an organ to see if there was any peculiarity of their appearance which would indicate a good or bad omen. In fact, in the ruins of Babylon they have found close models of the liver carefully marked off in sections, and on each written the significance of any particular irregularity found at that particular place. If there was a wrinkle or a bump or something at that particular spot on the liver, why it had a certain significance. So the augurs were one the two highest classes of priest, and the pontiffs were the other.
Now the pontiffs were the theologians, the ones who reduced their religion to systematic doctrines and taught all the lessor priest. They supervised the calendar, determined when the religious festivals were, they were the officiating priest at the dedication of new temples and other ceremonies.
Now the Pontifex Maximus, the greatest pontiff, could be, and sometimes was a king. King Attalus the third, king of Pergamos, was Pontifex Maximus, and when the Roman Empire came along, why the Roman emperors, well in fact, earlier than that, Julius Caesar, who never got to be emperor, you will remember, they cut his throat before he could carry out that ambition, but Julius Caesar was a Pontifex Maximus for at least 20 years of his life. And thereafter, beginning with his nephew, who became the first emperor under the title of Augustus, thereafter for several generations, the emperors all took the title of Pontifex Maximus. So you had here the combined character of priest and king.
Now I told you before, for every genuine thing that Yahweh has provided in His Word, Satan has a deceptive counterfeit. You’ll remember that Yahweh said to the people of Israel, "Ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation." You will remember how Christ combined in one person the two functions of priest and king. The book of Hebrews goes into that in some detail. Christ was born out of the tribe of Judah, a royal tribe from which, up to that time, no priest had been taken. But He was the true High Priest of which the earthly high priest in the temple had been nothing but a symbol. So we have Satan providing his deceptive counterfeit, a priest-king of a very evil pagan religion.
Now when Julius Caesar exercised his authority at the ceremonies as Pontifex Maximus, he appeared in a scarlet robe, he wore on his head a mitered cap as priest of the pagan god Dagon, the fish god, that tall cap with the top cut into the image of a gaping fish mouth, and he carried keys of the pagan god Janus and the pagan goddess Cybele. Cybele was the same one whose temple it was in the city of Ephesus that caused all the rioting against Paul. The keys — the keys to the mystery of their religion was an important pagan emblem. So, Who is it that today wears the scarlet robe, the miter of the priest of Dagon and says. I have the keys? — and here is where it began. Julius Caesar claimed that he was a descendant of the Roman goddess Venice, and you know, of course, that Venice can be traced back to the Babylonian Ishtar, who can be traced back in turn to Semiramis, the wife of Nimrod. So you can see where all of this has its roots.
The emperor Gratian was the first one who refused the office of Pontifex Maximus, and in fact he abolished it by decree, but about 378 A.D., the office of Pontifex Maximus was claimed by the Pope. From the earliest origin of it, it had never been anything but a pagan priesthood. Well getting back to our city of Pergamos for a bit, the Romans reorganized the kingdom of Pergamos into the Roman province of Asia about 130 B.C., and Pergamos became its capital city. Now the authority of Rome was everywhere manifested by the sword. It was, above all other things, a favorite weapon of the Roman troops, and that was their authority, they ruled by the sword. So you see here, that in addressing the Church at Pergamos, Christ identifies Himself as, He that has a sharp sword with two edges. If you think the Romans might is something to fear, they’re nothing compared to Me, I’ve got the real sword.
Now He mentions there, Antipas, My faithful martyr. There is no record either in any sacred writings of the early Church fathers or any historical records of any martyr named Antipas, either in the city of Pergamos or during the period of the Church’s existence which was symbolized by the Church at Pergamos. So obviously, it is not speaking then of some one individual. A faithful martyr is therefore representative of a group or class. And, Who are they? Well we are going to have to find out that by studying the meaning of the name. It is derived from two Greek words, anti, opposed to, popis, sovereign Pope, You see, the Pope took over as part of his title, he called himself the holy father. Now the only place you’ll find that mentioned in the Bible is that Christ alone prayed to His Father as Holy Father, and He warned specifically, Call no man on earth father, for ye have one Father which is in heaven. So these were the martyrs who were martyred for resisting the increasing power of the Pope. Where the worship of Jesus Christ had been tolerated from 313 A.D., it became the official Roman religion in 330. Starting this period of the Church of Pergamos, and this was a period of the consistently growing power of the priestly hierarchy. You can see that this reached its climax under Pope Gregory the third, Gregory the Great, who was Pope from 590 to 604 A.D.
It is said that somebody once asked Satan, Suppose you found a truth so tremendously great and clear and obviously true that you just couldn’t fight against it, What would you do? He said, That’s easy, I’d organize it. Now the Church was undergoing no persecution, it was the official religion of the empire. It received subsidies out of the public treasury. It became a fashionable thing to be a "Christian", and you got a lot of people into it who were only nominal Christians. But none the less, it wasn’t taking over the empire fast enough. There were a lot of pagans who remained pagans even though Christianity was the official religion. Now how to get them into the Church. As I say, the more it changes, the more it is the same. You have your evangelist running around all in a dither today, How can we get more people into the Church? — it doesn’t matter whether they believe — it doesn’t matter whether they are Christian in their character and conduct — it doesn’t matter anything except you have big congregations. And it doesn’t matter, in the least, whether there are doctrinal differences as great as between two Christian denominations as between Christianity and paganism — get them all together in one big Church. If doctrine is separating us, why abandon the doctrine. Bring it together into a big political organization. So what’s going on today? — same thing as back then — how to bring in the pagans. If you preached true Christianity to them, What attraction do you have for a man who finds the worship of Venice very satisfactory to him because they maintain the temple prostitutes there for his use? You’re not competing along that line, you don’t have what he’s interested in. You’re calling him to something that is tough. You’re calling him to give up whatever evil qualities he had, whatever bad conduct he had. You’re calling upon him to do his utmost, and a painful utmost, to live up to his own highest principles, and you don’t get that kind of converts very fast.
Well this thing was brought to a climax under Gregory the first, he enforced it. They said, look, we are making it hard to get in the pagans because we are emphasizing differences between paganism and Christianity. They’re telling these people, you’ve got to give up everything you ever thought was holy if you want to become a Christian. Now that is not good salesmanship — emphasize the similarities — show them it doesn’t take much of a change. You can come into a Christian church and be quite comfortable there. Now you have your own pagan holidays, so the Church will adopt the same thing as an official church holiday and instead of your going to the temple of Jupiter on that day you come to the Christian Church, and instead of calling him Jupiter, you call him Saint Peter, and worship him. Instead of worshipping Venice, as the Queen of Heaven and the mother of God, you come to this church and you just change a name to the Virgin Mary, and you go on with your same worship, and you can be part of this big rising popular Christian Church, and that is what they did. You will find in the writings of a number of early Christian followers their bitter condemnation of that fact, but whereas the pagans were mostly faithful to their religion, and they weren’t adopting any ceremonies or holidays of the followers of Christ, but the Church was adopting pagan holidays and pagan rituals right and left. Well you had that tremendous drive, as I say, to bring in the pagans, and bring, if need be, pagan worship in order to do it.
So, What is the condemnation given of this church at Pergamos? I have a few things against them. Thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam who taught Balac to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication (race mixing, explanation mine), exactly what was being done here. You’ll remember the enemy, after trying to defeat Israel many times by military force and failing, found all they needed to do was induce the Israelites to become apostate from their religion, and Yahweh’s protection was gone, and that is what Balaam taught to Balac.
Well so much for Bertrand L. Comparet. The main reason I decided to quote him here is because of his statement about the 40 foot high Altar of Zeus that was at Pergamos. Comparet did a very good job of tying in this Altar of Zeus with the Babylonian religion. Further, Comparet gave us a very enlightening lesson concerning the origin of paganism and how it has been mixed with Christianity. That is why today Christianity can be considered a harlot no better than the average street whore. I believe that the above information about the "Altar of Pergamos" or the "Altar of Zeus" as it is also called is simply amazing. The part of the story that I know for a fact from what I have studied is that the Altar of Zeus was in Pergamos when John wrote his Revelation. Also the story of how German archaeologist removed it from Pergamos and transferred it to Berlin.
There is another thing of importance to be mentioned here. Just who is this Zeus? It is from this same Zeus that we get the word Jesus. I know there are going to be a lot of you who are not going to like that, but if you will take the time to research it, you will find that it is true. The implication is that when we worship Jesus in name, we are worshipping Satan. Do you suppose that is why we always see these long haired pictures of him like Zeus? I have looked at pictures of Zeus as portrayed by statues in the various encyclopedias and it looks like the pictures of Jesus to me. Maybe it would be well to find out who we are worshipping as this is a serious situation. Maybe, when we find out what these pictures we have in our homes represent, we will not want them around anymore. Just how far have we strayed away from where Yahweh wants us to be?
There is quite a bit of history surrounding the city of Pergamum (Pergamos), and I will not be able to convey all of it in this article. The location of Pergamum is aptly described in "The Popular and Critical Bible Encyclopedia", volume 2, page 1309:
Location. The river Caicus, which is formed by the union of two branches meeting thirty or forty miles above its mouth waters an extensive valley not exceeding in natural beauty and fertility by any in the world. In this valley, in N. lat, 30º 4´ E. long 27º 12´, stood Pergamos at the distance of about twenty miles from the sea. It lay on the north bank of the Caicus, at the base and on the declivity (steep downward slope) of two high and steep mountains, on one of which now stands a dilapidated castle.
At Pergamum was one of the finest libraries in the world of its time, second only to the one at Alexandria. Quoting again from "The Popular and Critical Bible Encyclopedia", volume 2, page 1309:
Library. King Eumenes, the second of the name, greatly beautified the town, and increased the library of Pergamos so considerably that the number of volumes amounted to 200,000. As the papyrus shrub had not yet begun to be exported from Egypt, sheep and goat skins, cleaned and prepared for the purpose, were used for manuscripts; and as the art of preparing them was brought to perfection at Pergamos, they, from that circumstance, obtained the name of pergamena, or parchments. The library remained at Pergamos after the kingdom of the Attali had lost its independence, until Antony removed it to Egypt, and presented it to Queen Cleopatra. (Pliny, Hist. Nat. iii. 2; Plutarch Anton.) The valuable tapestries, called in Latin aulæa. from having adorned the hall of King Attalus, were also wrought in this town. The last king of Pergamos bequeathed his treasures to the Romans, who took possession of the kingdom also, and erected it into a province under the name of Asia Propria.
For another aspect of Pergamum, we are going to consider religion. I will quote from "Insight of the Scriptures", volume 2, pages 607-608:
Religion of Pergamum. Pagan religion was greatly stressed in Pergamum. It seems that Chaldean Magi (astrologers) fled from Babylon to Pergamum, setting up their central college there. Eumenes II built a huge marble altar to the god Zeus to celebrate his defeat of the Gauls (who we know are Israelites). The remains of it have been unearthed and show that it was decorated with an enormous relief depicting gods battling giants. ... The Sick from all parts of Asia flocked to Pergamum because of its temple of Asclepius, the god of healing and medicine.
For more on this "Asclepius" we are going to return to The Popular and Critical Bible Encyclopedia, volume 2, page 1309:
One of the Seven Churches. In Pergamos was one of ‘the Seven Churches of Asia’, to which the Apocalypse is addresses. This church is commended for its fidelity and firmness in the midst of persecutions, and in a city so eminently addicted to idolatry. ‘I know’, it is said, ‘thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is’ (Rev. ii:13). Now there was at Pergamos a celebrated and much frequented temple of Æsculaphius, who probably there, as in other places, was worshiped sic. in the form of a living serpent, fed in the temple, and considered its divinity. Hence Æsculaphius was called the god of Pergamos, and on the coins struck by the town, Æsculaphius appears with a rod encircled by a serpent (Berger, Thesaur., i. 492). As the sacred writer mentions (Rev. xii:9) the great dragon and the old serpent, there is reason to conclude that when he says in the above passage that the church of Pergamos dwelt ‘where Satan’s seat is’, he alludes to the worship of the serpent which was there practiced.
They were worshipping more than a snake, they were worshipping Satan himself. They were also worshipping Satan’s children, the Jews for which the serpent was only a symbol. You have to understand the Babylonian system is religious, political and economic in nature with the ultimate goal of destroying the White Israel race which brings us to the "doctrine of Balaam" which was being taught at Pergamum. Let’s return for a quote from "Insight of the Scriptures", volume 2, page 508:
"Teachings of Balaam." However, in the congregation there was the undermining influence of those "holding fast the teaching of Balaam." (Rev. 2:14) This expression calls to mind the Mesoptamian prophet Balaam, who after unsuccessful attempts to curse Israel, suggested using pagan women to draw male Israelites into lewd worship of false gods. As a consequence or the resulting sexual immorality and idolatry, 24,000 Israelites died. (Num. 25:1-18; 1 Cor. 10:8). ... Evidently some in the Pergamum congregation, those "holding fast the teaching of Balaam", were condoning fornication (race-mixing, comment mine). (Jude 4, 11; 2 Pet. 2:14, 15) Pergamum was noted for an elaborate temple of Aphrodite (venus), the goddess of sexual love, and sensuous practices were common.
If you will take the time to read the Scriptures mentioned in this last quote, you will understand that Yahweh is very angry and opposed to race-mixing. If He destroyed 24,000 Israelites who race-mixed in Numbers chapter 25, He is just as angry today with race-mixing as He was back then. Yahweh, in this 25th chapter, proclaimed death to race-mixers. Not only does Yahweh hate the race-mixer, He hates the product of the race-mixer. If Yahweh destroyed the race-mixers back then, He will destroy the race-mixers of today!!!!! This being true, there is a lot of people who are on Yahweh’s schedule to pay the death penalty. They, according to His written Word, shall be punished with their children. Yahweh has said it, and there is no way anyone is going to change it. And, by the way, this same passage (Numbers, chapter 25) is written in the Jews own publication, "The Holy Scriptures, According To The Masoretic Text, A New Translation, With The Aid Of Previous Versions And With Constant Consultation Of Jewish Authorities, The Jewish Publication Society Of America, 5713-1953."
THE PRINCE OF TYRE
We should now have a better idea about the city of Pergamum and its satanic connection with the ancient Babylonian priesthood. We should be starting to understand how the so-called churches of today are nothing more than a continuation of this same system. I will be showing you more about this satanic connection as we go along. We have should now have a pretty good idea about this Altar of Pergamos or Altar of Zeus being Satan’s seat. Now we are going to study another city which has a satanic counterpart with Pergamum. It is the city of Tyre. As we go along with this study, we will begin to see how it all fits into the overall picture. Before we get into the Scriptual study of this city, let’s take a look at some its historical background. I am going to be quoting from "Insight of the Scriptures", volume 2, pages 1135-1136. I am going to abridge it to some degree and also use the name of Yahweh rather than "Jehovah." I will also be breaking into the quote from time to time with meaningful comments:
Tyre [Rock]. The principal Phoenician seaport; identified with present-day es-Sur, situated about 30 miles north of Mount Carmel and 22 miles south-southwest of Sidon. Tyre was an ancient city (Isa. 23:1,7), but just when it was founded as a colony by the Sidonians is not known. It is first mentioned after the conquest of the Promised Land in about 1467 B.C., and at that time it was a fortified city. This mention of Tyre was in connection with the boundaries of Asher’s tribal territory. From the start, and all through its history, Tyre apparently remained outside Israel’s borders as an independent neighbour. — Jos. 19:24, 29; 2 Sam. 24:7.
I should point out that this city of Tyre was part of the territory that Israel was supposed to drive the inhabitants out of. The inhabitants of Tyre were Canaanites with the bloodline of Cain in them. If the territory was assigned to Asher, then, Asher should have driven the Canaanites out taken it for a possession. It sure would have saved a lot of trouble later on! Now continuing this quote,
Friendly relations existed at times between Tyre and Israel, notably during the reigns of David and Solomon. Skilled workmen engaged in building David’s royal palace with cedar sent by Hiram the king of Tyre (2 Sam. 5:11; ! Chr. 14:1) The Thyrians also supplied David with cedar later used in the temple’s construction — 1 Chr. 22:1-4
It seem that the Jews were in the lumber business back then too, and even supplied lumber and other materials for the temple. Now continuing,
After David’s death king Hiram of Tyre furnished Solomon with the materials and assistance for the construction of the temple and other government buildings. (1 Ki. 5:1-10; 7:1-8; 2 Chr. 2:3-14) A half-Israelite son of a Tyrian worker in copper, who himself was a skilled craftsman, was employed in the construction of the temple. (1 Ki. 7:13; 2 Chr. 2:13, 14)
Where we to hire half-breeds to help build our temple? You will notice here that this was a worker skilled in copper. Well, it so happens that the descendants of Cain got into the copper business very early and this half-breed "Tyrian" is a descendant of Cain! Now continuing,
For their assistance the Tyrans were paid with wheat, barley, oil and wine. (1 Ki. 5:11, 12; @ Chr. 2:15)
This statement should really start ringing bells and lighting up lights because these "Tyrian" Canaanites were not farmers, so the only way they could get food was to trade something else for it. The Jew has the curse of Cain on him and the earth will not yield its strength to him! Now continuing,
In addition, Solomon gave the king of Tyre 20 cities, though the Tyrian monarch was not overly pleased with the gift. — 1 Ki. 9:10-13.
Now where does Solomon get off giving away our territory? Is he going to let these Canaanites from Tyre move in and crossbreed with our people? Is he going to give away our land after we fought so hard to get it? Fortunately, the Jews didn’t want it as they didn’t want to farm it with the curse of Cain on them! (Maybe Solomon knew that when he made the offer.) Now continuing,
Tyre in time became one of the greatest sea powers of the ancient world, and her mariners and commercial fleet of "Tarshish" ships were famous for their voyges to faraway places. Solomon and the king of Tyre coorperated in joint shipping venture for the importing of precious things including gold from Ophir. — 1 Ki. 9:26-28; 10:11, 22; 2 Chr. 9:21.
You will notice here that Solomon and the king of Tyre cooperated in these matters. No doubt the king of Tyre financed all of these expeditions, and Israel furnished the manpower in the form of mariners etc. Even in these early days, the Canaanite Jews were infiltrating into out business. continuing now,
In all the dealings the Tyrians had with Israel, there is no indication that, as a people, they were interested in the worship of Yahweh; their association was particularly a commercial one. Racially they were Canaanites, and religiously they practiced a form of Baal worship, their chief deities being Melkart and Ashtoreth). When Ethbaal was king of the Sidonians (including Tyre), his daughter Jezebel married Ahab, the king of the northern kingdom of Israel. Jezebel was infamous in her determination to blot out the worship of Yahweh. — 1 Ki. 16:29, 31; 18:4, 13, 19.
We really have a big one here. Jezebel did a very effective job of introducing the worship of Baal into Israel and that religion is still being practiced by us today. You really need to go back and review what was quoted from "Freemasonry, An Interpretation" by Martin L Wagner from his book on pages 200-202. We know that it was this same religion that became the official religion of Rome in A.D. 220. This is the religion, then, that Constantine was influential in mixing with Christianity at the Council of Nicaea. Thus, today, we still have the tenets of Baal in our so-called "Christian" churches of today which came from the Canaanite religion. Also, in this quote, we have another example of an Israelite (Ahab) marrying a Canaanite (Jezebel) and committing miscegenation. Sure, the Canaanites of the seed-line of Cain of Tyre didn’t have any interest in the worship of Yahweh — they still don’t! Continuing quoting,
Condemned by God. It was not, however, for the personal wickedness of Jezebel and her daughter Athaliah that Tyre came under very heavy divine condemnation. (It was part of it, comment mine) Tyre grew to be very great at the expense of other people, including Israelites. (Sounds like Jews to me.) She was a manufacturer of metal objects, glassware, and purple dyes and was a trading center for the overland caravans as well as a great import-export depot. Along with this industrial and commercial growth came riches, conceit, and pride (still sounds Jewish). Her merchants and tradesmen boasted of being princes and honorable ones of the earth. (Isa. 23:8) Tyre in time also developed an attitude of opposition to Yahweh and conspired with neighboring nations against God’s people (Israel). (Ps. 83:2-8) So it was her bold defiance of Yahweh that eventually brought upon the city adverse judgment, downfall. and destruction.
Some things never change. The Canaanite Thyrian merchant Jews were taking crafty council to destroy Israel back then, and they are still doing it today. Let’s read this passage here, Psalm 83:2-8, because it still applies today:
2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. 4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. 5 For they have consulted together with one consent; they are confederate against thee: 6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; 7 Gebal, and Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; 8 Assur also is joined with them: they have hopen the children of Lot. Selah.
Now continuing the quote from "Insight of the Scriptures", volume 2, pages 1135-1136:
In the latter part of the ninth century B.C., Yahweh took note of this city’s arrogant attitude. He therefore warned her that she would be paid back in kind for robbing his people of the gold, silver, and many other desirable things that she had used to beautify her temples. There was also to be accounting for Tyre’s having sold God’s (Yahweh’s) people into slavery. — Joe. 3:4-8; Am. 1:9, 10.
You can see from this, nothing has changed with these people. Today the Jews are still robbing Israel of gold and silver and many other desirable things with their many central banks and agencies and forcing them into slavery. Returning now to quotation,
Later the prophet Isaiah recorded a further pronouncement against Tyre, which indicated that she would be forgotten for "seventy years." (Isa. 23:1-18 Years thereafter the prophet Jeremiah included Tyre among those nations that were singled out to drink of Yahweh’s rage. (Jer. 25:8-17, 22, 27; 27:2-7; 47:2-4) Since the nations mentioned in the prophecy of Jeremiah were to "serve the king of Babylon seventy years" (Jer. 25:8-11), this suggest that both the prophecy of Isaiah and that of Jeremiah related to Nebuchadnezzar’s against Tyre.
Also through Ezekiel, a contemporary of Jeremiah, Yahweh pointed to calamity for Tyre at the hands of Nebuchadnezzar. (Eze. 26:1-21;28:1-19) Though Tyre had been compared to a pretty ship with multicolored sails and deck coverings and a prow inlaid with ivory, she would sink in the open sea. (Eze. 27:3-16 Tyre’s ‘king’ (apparently the line of Tyrian rulers) haughtily boasted: "I am a god. In the seat of god I have seated myself." But he was to be removed as profane and destroyed by fire. — Eze. 28:2-19
Destruction of City (Tyre). In the course of Nebuchadnezzar’s long siege against Tyre, the heads of his soldiers were "made bald" from the chafing of their helments. and their shoulders were "rubbed bare" from carrying materials used in the construction of siegeworks. Since Nebuchadnezzar received no "wages" for serving as His instrument in executing judgment upon Tyre, Yahweh promised to compensate him with the wealth of Egypt. (Eze. 29:17-20) According to the Jewish (Judean) historian Josephus, the siege lasted 13 years, and it cost the Babylonians a great deal. Secular history does not record exactly how thorough or effective Nebucahdnezzar’s efforts were. But the loss of lives and property to the Tyrians must have been great. — Eze. 26:7-12.
When the Israelites returned from Babylonian exile, however, the Tyrians were able to assist in supplying cedar timbers from Lebanon for a second temple, and they resumed their trade with the rebuilt city of Jerusalem — Ezr. 3:7; Neh 13:16. Tyre’s /spanmargin-top: 0.19in; margin-bottom: 0.19in; text-align: left;/emconflict with Nebuchadnezzar, though great, was not to be the complete end for Tyre. A later prophet pronouncement indicated that, though Tyre would build a rampart and pile up silver and gold, Yahweh himself would destroy her completely. — Zec. 9:3, 4.
Nearly 200 years after Zechariah’s prophecy was given, it was fulfilled. In 322 B.C., Alexander the Great marched his army across Asia Minor and in his sweep southward, paused long enough to give his attention to Tyre. When the city refused to open its gates, Alexander in his rage had his army scrape up the ruins of the mainland city and throw it into the sea, thus building a causeway out to the island city, all of this fulfillment of prophecy. (Eze 26:4) With his naval forces holding the Tyrian ships bottled up in their harbor, Alexander set to construct the highest siege towers ever used in ancient wars. Finally, after seven months the 46 (150 ft.) walls were breached. In addition to the 8,000 military men killed in battle, 2,000 prominent leaders were killed as a reprisal, and 30,000 inhabitants were sold into slavery.
I have not given you all of the history of Tyre. I believe that I have given you enough of the historical background that I can now start making some comments about this city. I will start by reading Ezekiel 28:1-19:
1 The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord God; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God: 3 Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee: 4 With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures: 5 By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches: 6 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God; 7 Behold I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against thy beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness. 8 They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas. 9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? But thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee. 10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God, 11 Moreover (This is not all, there is more to come.), the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. 13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius. topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, the gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so : thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. 15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. 16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. 17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. 18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee. And I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. 19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
Now lets see what we have here. It says in verse 2, "Because thine heart is lifted up." Have you ever noticed how all of these Jews seem to be experts on every subject that can be mentioned? Do you ever get the impression that they want to live at the very top of the hill with everyone else bowing down to them? I am sure that this prince of Tyrus, being a Jew, thought quite highly of himself. So Yahweh had the prophet point out his pride. He, like all Jews, was all puffed up with an opinion of his own sufficiency, and looked with disdain upon all around him. You talk about conceit; the Jews have it. You talk about impudence; they have that too. You’ve seen the Jews; I don’t have to tell you what I mean, but what else can you expect out of the Satanic seed-line? Next in verse 2 it says, "I am God, I sit in the seat of God." Don’t you ever think that these Jews don’t want to have the power of life and death over other people, that they don’t want to be the very God Himself. If you do not worship their holocaust, see where it gets you. If you say the slightest little thing about them, all hell will break loose. Yes, they really do think that they are God, and they are going to make everybody bow down to their United Nations (Jew-nited Nations).
It goes on in verse 2 to say, "in the midst of the seas." Tyrus, just like Jew York was a big sea port, And do you know who owns all of those shipping companies? — Yes, Jews. And that is who owned the ships in Tyre too. Matthew Henry’s Commentary puts it this way: "‘I am the strong God, and therefore will not be contradicted, because I cannot be controlled. I sit as high as God, my throne equal with his. ... I sit as safely as God, as safely in the heart of the seas, and far out of reach of danger, as he in the height of heaven.’ He thinks his guards of men of war about his throne as pompous and potent as the host of angels that are about the throne of God." Here is another quote from Matthew Henry, "The king of Tyre, though he has such a mighty influence upon all about him, and with the help of his riches bears a mighty sway, though he has tribute and presents brought to his court with much devotion as if they were sacrifices to his altar, though he is flattered by his courtiers and made a god of by his poets, yet after all, he is but a man; he knows it; he fears it. But he sets his heart as the heart of God: ‘Thou hast conceited thyself to be a god, hast compared thyself with God, thinking thyself as wise and strong, and as fit to govern the world, as he.’" Do you think these Jews do not desire with all of their heart to be as God? You can mark this one down in your book, the war that you see going on today is the same old war that has been going on for ages. It is the war of Satan and his kingdom of non-white people against Yahweh and His Kingdom of White people.
Now we go to the 3rd verse, and it says, "Behold thou art wiser than Daniel, there is no secret that they can hide from thee." Do you notice how the Jews always have their big nose in everyone else’s business? They have a system of surveillance second to none. The Jews haven’t changed; they are still like they were in Tyre. We know they are not as wise as Daniel only if you consider them wise in knowing everyone else’s business. Now another quote from Matthew Henry, "We are here told what it was that he was proud of. His wisdom. It is probable that this prince of Tyre was a man of very good natural parts, a philosopher, and well read in all the parts of learning that were then in vogue, at least a politician, and one that had great dexterity in managing the affairs of state. And then he thought himself wiser than Daniel. ... When the king of Tyre dreams himself to be a god, he says, I am wiser than Daniel. There is no secret that they can hide from me." I think you will have to agree that Matthew Henry described the Jew quite well even though he apparently doesn't understand the difference between a Jew and an Israelite. At this time, I will have to quote from Matthew Henry again. From a comment he makes here, he should have really understood the difference between a Jew and an Israelite, "As some of the Kings of Judah loved husbandry, so the king of Tyre loved merchandise, and by it he got riches, increased his riches, and filled his treasures with gold and silver." I really shouldn’t have to explain this last one; it should be as plain as the nose on a Jew’s face.
Then in verse 4 it says, "thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures." Verse 5 goes on to say, "by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thy heart is lifted up because of thy riches." I don’t know about you, but it sounds like Jew to me. How about the drug traffic, the slave traffic, the white slave traffic, the tobacco traffic, the alcohol traffic, the black market traffic, the mercenary soldier traffic, the untrue news traffic and any other kind of dirty traffic you want to talk about. They have always been there right in the middle of it making money, money, money.
At this time I would like to point out something. From verse 1 through verse 10 the prophet is speaking mostly of the king of Tyre and his future demise. From verse 11 through 19 he is going into an allegory and comparing the king of Tyre to Lucifer. Actually the king of Tyre would be one of Lucifer’s children as the Satanic seed-line. It goes on to say in verse 12, "Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty." Well, in the first place, we know there is no such thing as a Jew "perfect in beauty." Again we will use a comment by Matthew Henry, "What was the renown of the king of Tyre? He is here spoken of as having lived in great splendour, v. 12-15. He was a man, but it is here owned that he was a very considerable man and one that made a mighty figure in his day. He far exceeded other men. Hiram and other kings of Tyre had done so in their time; and the reigning king perhaps has not come short of any of them: Thou sealest up the sum full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. Both the powers of human nature and the prosperity of human life seemed in him to be at the highest pitch. He was looked upon to be as wise as the reason of men could make him, and as happy as the wealth of this world and the enjoyment of it could make him; in him you might see the utmost that both could do; and therefore seal up the sum, for nothing can be added; he is a complete man, perfect in suo genere - in his kind." In other words, the king of Tyre was the most! Just like all Jews, they really love themselves, Don’t they? Did you ever watch them on Oscar night patting each other on the back?
Now lets go to verse 13, "Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering." WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! CONTACT TIME!!! CONTACT TIME!!! SERPENT TIME!!! SERPENT TIME!!! I hope you are still here! This is the same Devil, Lucifer, Dragon, Satan, old Serpent that seduced Eve. The product of that seduction was Cain. The Jews are descendants of Cain. DO YOU GET THE CONNECTION??? The prince of Tyre was a kike of the Satanic seed-line!!! Where is our understanding?
It goes on here, "every precious stone was thy covering." Again I am going to quote Matthew Henry, "One instance of the magnificence of the king of Tyre is, that he outdid all the other princes in jewels, which those have the greatest plenty of that trade most abroad, as he did: Every precious stone was his covering. There is a great variety of precious stones; but he had of every sort and in such plenty that besides what were treasured up in his crown, he had his clothes trimmed with them; they were his covering. Nay (v 14), he walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire, that is, these precious stones which glittered and sparkled like fire. His rooms were in a manner set around with jewels. So that he walked in the midst of them, and fancied himself as glorious as if, like God, he had been surrounded by so many angels, who are compared to a flaming of fire. And if he be such an admirer of precious stones as to think them as bright as angels, no wonder that he is such an admirer of himself as to think himself as great as God." Can’t you just picture this "kike" strutting up and down the halls of his palace with his nose taking about a two step lead. Well, there is another thing here to indicate that this king of Tyre was a Jew, is the kind of music he liked. Verse 13 continues, "the workmanship of thy tabrets and thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created." Have you noticed how many of the Jews are musicians? Remember the attributes of the descendants of Cain as listed in Genesis? Again quoting Matthew Henry, "Another thing that made him think his palace a paradise was the curious music he had, the tabrets and pipes, hand-instruments and wind-instruments. The workmanship of these was extraordinary, and they were prepared for him on purpose; prepared in thee, the pronoun is feminine- in thee, O Tyre! Or it denotes that the king was effeminate in doting on such things." Evidently this king of Tyre was a queer! Then verse 15 goes on to say, "Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee." This verse has to be speaking of Satan in particular and it would only be natural for the king of Tyre to be like Satan. Verse 16 says, "By the multitudes of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence." Have you ever noticed that wherever you find Jews, you will find violence? There is one more thing that I would like to point out in this passage of Scripture and it is in verse 19, "thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more." Also, if you have ever studied the history of the Jews, you will find that wherever they go, there was and is "terror."
MORE ON ISRAEL’S END
To understand more about Israel’s end, one might think that we would want to maybe investigate John’s book of Revelation, but the 32nd chapter of Deuteronomy has much to say about this and events leading up to it. But for now lets get back to the 17th chapter of Isaiah verse 14 and it is repeated here:
14 And behold at eventide trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.
What we really want and need to understand, at this point, is: Who are the ones that are spoiling and robbing us? It is of the utmost importance that we understand beyond all doubt who this is! It is of great necessity to understand our enemy. Those who understand the two seed-line message know who their enemy is. There is one thing that the Jews all have in common whether they have some white blood in them, or if they have traces of Negroid or Mongolian, and that is they all have traces to some degree or anther of the Satanic seed-line. Once they are injected with any small amount of the satanic seed through cross breeding, they are a devil. I repeat, what we must understand, at this point in time, is the fact that it is the satanic Jews who are at the forefront in the drive to spoil and rob us. Until our people understand this fact, we are not going to go anyplace in fighting this thing. Most of our people are still under the spell that somehow the Jews are "God’s chosen people." These people are actually aiding and abetting our worst enemy. If we are going to fight a war, and we are in a war, we are going to have to understand the enemy’s machinations and what their principal objectives are. We simply cannot fight a war without this kind of intelligence. In addition to understanding the enemy, it is important to understand who we are and where we came from. If we don’t understand who we are and where we came from, we sure will not know where we are going. So, you see, if we don’t understand about the enemy, then we won’t understand what the "trouble" at "eveningtide" is. Nor will we understand who it is that "before the morning he is not." Nor will we understand who it means when it says, "This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us." Do we dare point our finger at the Jew as that enemy?
Let us now go to the 32nd chapter of Deuteronomy and see if we can find any answers. In this chapter we have what is called the song of Moses. This song of Moses is instructional and is also a warning from Yahweh that Israel is to take heed and not forsake Him:
1 Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. 2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass.
Here Yahweh is calling out to Israel and saying, Listen to My instructions and teachings for they are as the refreshing rain upon the thirsty plants and dry ground. Yahweh is making an appeal to heaven and earth to listen concerning the truth of what is about to be said. Yahweh is calling upon earth and heaven as witnesses and calls record against a people rebellious and backsliding, and that He would use this song of Moses as an instrument of remembrance. He says here, "My doctrine shall drop as the rain." The Hebrew meaning of the word doctrine in the Strong’s Concordance is:
3948 leqach, leh’-kakh; from 3947; properly something received, i.e. (mentally) instruction (whether on the part of the teacher or hearer); also (in an active and sinister sense) inveiglement: -doctrine, learning, fair speech.
Actually this 32nd chapter of Deuteronomy is mostly a prophecy of Israel’s future. By understanding this chapter, we will have a better idea of what the 17th chapter of Isaiah and the theme of this article is all about. You will notice the word distil is used here. Actually the correct modern spelling for the word is distill instead of distil as used in the Bible. We know when we distill water that all of the contaminants are removed and we are left with pure water. So, too, is it with nature in the process of making rain. What Yahweh is saying here is: His doctrine (teachings) are pure, you can count on them as being true and perfect. You can be sure that His doctrines are not to be compared to what we call "Churches" today! Most of the "Church" doctrine that is going around today had its origin in paganism. Also another quality of rain is, it is life giving. In other words Yahweh’s pure doctrine (teachings) will, in the end, bring life to Israel.
3 Because I will publish the name of the Lord: ascribe ye greatness unto our God. 4 He is the rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.
Next, Yahweh signs His Name to His teachings. Before He even announces His "doctrine", He takes full responsibility for it. Yahweh doesn’t sign His Name at the end as man usually does, but is straight forward and up front with His pronouncements placing His Holy Name as a seal upon it so there will be no question that it is His. Once He has said it, He will not take it back, it is sure.
Yahweh is here described as a Rock. Yahweh is the Rock for He is in Himself immutable immovable, solid. Also rock makes a good material for foundations, therefore Yahweh is an everlasting foundation. Therefore His ways and judgments are perfect. He cannot lie, He is "without iniquity. We can be proud and thankful that He is our Rock, that is, Israel’s Rock! Now for Yahweh’s pronouncements upon Israel:
5 They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation. 6 Do ye thus requite the Lord, O foolish people and unwise? is not he thy father that hath bought thee? hath he not made thee, and established thee? 7 Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee. 8 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. 9 For the Lord’s portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.
It is stated here, "They have corrupted themselves." The word "corrupted" here can mean decay, batter, cast off, destroy, loose, mar, perish, spill, spoiler and waste. This corruption cannot be blamed on Yahweh as they themselves are the blame. It further states, "their spot is not the spot of his children." The word spot here can also mean stain, blemish and blot. The inference here is that Yahweh’s children are supposed to have a spot or mark that sets them apart. Yahweh’s people are to be a peculiar people unlike the other races. But today they are not carrying His mark. Today they are carrying the mark of the Jews. They think like the Jews, they act like the Jews, they try to look like the Jews want them to look and they worship a Jew. You could safely say they are carrying the "spot" of the Jew. You have to remember that Yahweh, in this song of Moses is projecting Israel’s future. They are so Judaized that it continues, "they are a perverse and crooked generation."
Next there appears to be a triple question in verse 6, but it really isn’t: "Do ye thus requite the Lord, O foolish people and unwise? is not he thy father that hath bought thee? hath he not made thee, and established thee? There you have it, three question marks, but really only one question. Lets state this question in another way: Can you pay Me back foolish children? Can you match the price for which I have purchased you? Have I not created (fathered) you and everything that you are and ever will be, you are obligated to Me? If we are Israel, and we are, it is time to awaken to the fact that Yahweh fathered us, directed our way and if we are ever going to amount to anything for Him, it will be through His guiding and anointing, for without Him we can do nothing.
Then in verse 7, Yahweh directs us to look back to our beginnings and see where we came from, "Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee." So, first recognize Yahweh and our position with Him, and second, remember our roots. If we can accomplish these two things, we are on our way, we have direction and aim in our life.
Verse 8 is a continuation of verse 7, and the following is part of the things Israel is supposed to remember: "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." The question here is: What "nations" were divided or separated? The word "nations" here is #1471 in the Hebrew dictionary of the Strong’s Concordance, and means goy, a heathen or foreigner. This verse proves that Yahweh practiced segregation back then and still does today! All of these bleeding hearts that want to bring in all of the blacks and what have you into America and make it one big happy family, you can see that it is not of Yahweh! Actually segregation is one of the main themes of the Bible. Yahweh commands segregation. Yahweh says, "everything after its own kind." If He wanted a hodgepodge of races, He would have created them that way! It says here that Yahweh has determined to keep the races separated, that He doesn’t intend miscegenation. Further in this verse Yahweh is not even talking about the other peoples of the earth. He is talking about separating the sons of Adam. It was only the Adamic people who ever formed nations. It takes people with like fathers and mothers to form families. It takes families to form clans. It takes clans to form nations. The other races don’t even know who their fathers are as they form into harems rather than families.
Israel was warned in Joshua 23:12,13 not to mix with other races:
12 Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you: 13 Know for a certainty that the Lord your God will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which the Lord your God hath given you.
Further, miscegenation caused Israel to be cursed, Judges 3:6, 7:
6 And they took their daughters to be their wives, and gave their daughters to their sons, and served their gods. 7 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord their God, and served Baalim and the groves.
There is one very important thing that these two passages have in common. First, Israel adopted the heathen religion and this led to sex orgies, and second, this led to miscegenation. Once we understand the process, then we can understand the result. Remember, when you start to worship heathen gods, it is only one small step to miscegenation. Is it any wonder these Baal "Churches" of today’ are all messed up with adopting all of these foreigners and bringing them into their homes?
There is probably no time more disastrous to Israel as during Ezra’s era when Judah had taken so many "strange wives". Ezra 10:18-44 gives a partial list of these that had committed miscegenation. Ezra says of those mixing with the Canaanites, Hittites, Perizites, Jebusites, Ammonites, Moabites, Egyptians, and Amorites, Ezra 9:2:
For they have taken of their daughters for themselves, and for their sons: so that the holy seed have mingled themselves with the people of those lands."
Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, Abridged by Ralph Earle, is strangely quiet on this verse. The Interpreter’s Bible thinks that the Jews are Israelites, so its conclusion’s are quite erroneous. (It does recognize the fact of mixed marriages though.) The Matthew Henry Commentary has this to say, volume 2, pages 1058-1059:
... but here is a damp upon his joys: information is brought him that many of the people, yea, and some of the rulers, had married wives of the heathen families, and joined themselves in affinity with strangers. ... What the sin was that they were guilty of: it was mingling with the people of those lands (v. 2), associating with them both in trade and in conversation, making themselves familiar with them, and to complete the affinity, taking their daughters in marriage to their sons. ... They disobeyed the express command of God, which forbade all intimacy with the heathen, and particularly in matrimonial contracts, Deut. vii. 3. They profaned the crown of their peculiarity, and set themselves upon a level with those above whom God had by singular marks of his favor, of late as well as formerly, dignified them. ... Who were the persons that were guilty of this sin, not only some of the unthinking people of Israel, that knew no better, but many of the priest and Levites, whose office it was to teach the law, and this law among the rest, and in whom, by reason of their elevation above common Israelites, it was a greater crime. It was a diminution to the sons of that tribe to match into any other tribe, and they seldom did except into the royal tribe; but for them to match with heathen, with Canaanites, and Hittites, and I know not whom, was such a disparagement as, if they had had any sense, though not of duty, yet of honour, one would think, they would never have been guilty of. Yet this was not the worst: The hand of the princes and rulers, who by their power should have prevented or reformed this high misdemeanour (misdemeanor!, HELL NO, more like a felony), was chief in this trespass. If princes be in a trespass, they will be charged as chief in it, because of the influence their example will have upon others. Many will follow their pernicious ways. But miserable is the case of that people whose leaders debauch them and cause them to err. ... The impression this made upon Ezra (v. 3): He rent his clothes, plucked off his hair, and sat down astonished. Thus he expressed the deep sense he had. ... Of the dishonour hereby done to God. It grieved him to the heart to think that a people called by his name should so grossly violate his law, should be so little benefited by his correction, and make such bad returns for his favours.
It goes on to say in verse 9, "For the Lord’s portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance." You will notice that it doesn’t say that the Hottentots are the Lord’s portion or that the Mongolians are the Lord’s portion. Then it makes sure that everyone understands that "Jacob is the lot of his inheritance." You will notice here that it excludes everyone else! As a matter of fact, the next few verses is going to explain how exclusive Jacob Israel is. Now verses 10 through 14 of Deuteronomy 32:
10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye. 11 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: 12 So the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him. 13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock; 14 Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape.
In verse 10 it says, "He (meaning Yahweh) found him (Israel) in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness." To better understand this statement, we are going to see what some other Scriptures have to say along this line.
15 Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein where fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint; 16 Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end.
19 Yet thou in thy manifold mercies forsookest them not in the wilderness: the pillar of the cloud departed not from them by day, and lead them in the way; neither the pillar of fire by night, to shew them light, and the way wherein they should go. 20 Thou gavest also thy good spirit to instruct them, and withheldest not thy manna from their mouth, and gavest them water for their thirst. 21 Yea, forty years didst thou sustain them in the wilderness, so that they lacked nothing; their clothes waxed not old, and their feet swelled not.
4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in. 5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them. 6 Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distress.
6 Neither said they, Where is the Lord that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, that led us through the wilderness, through a land of deserts and pits, through a land of drought, and of the shadow of death, through a land that no man passed through, and where no man dwelt?
5 I did know thee in the wilderness, in the land of great drought.
Verse 10 continues, "he (Yahweh) led him about, he (Yahweh) instructed him (Israel), he (Yahweh) kept him (Israel) as the apple of his eye. Now for a quote from Matthew Henry’s Commentary about this period:
He led him about and instructed him. When god had them in the wilderness he did not bring them directly to Canaan, but made them go a great way about, and so he instructed them; that is, ... By this means he took time to instruct them, and gave them commandments as they were able to receive them. Those whose business it is to instruct others must not expect it will be done of a sudden; learners must have time to learn. ... Every stage had something in it that was instructive; even when he chastened them, he thereby taught them out of the law. It is said (Ps. Cvii. 7) that he led them forth by the right way; and yet here that he led them about; for God always leads his people the right way, however to us it may seem circuitous: so that the furthest way about proves, if not the nearest way, yet the best way home to Canaan.
18 But God led the people about. though the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed (armed) out of the land of Egypt.
Well we cannot go on without making a comment here. There is an interesting note in the Dake’s Bible on the above verse, especially the word "harnessed." It can be found on page 78, item g, column 1, and reads as follows:
Hebrew chamush, armed. It is translated armed in Joshua 1: 14; 4: 12: Judges 7: 11. Nothing is said about the Israelites being disarmed by the Egyptians. It is likely that they helped protect Egypt from invading nomads since they lived in a frontier district. For this they were no doubt well equipped. Israel went out of Egypt in orderly companies (12:51). If they went 5 abreast, as some versions suggest, and there were around 6,000,000 people (as suggested in note b, 12: 37), there was a line of marching Israelites approximately 680 miles long, allowing 3 ft. each for 1,200,000 rows. If they went 50 abreast there would be a line of 68 miles; if 100 abreast a line of 34 miles; if 200, then a line of 17 miles; and if 400, a line of 8 ½ miles. Allowing 3 ft. to a person a column 400 abreast would mean that a path was made through the solid ice of the Red Sea about 1,200 ft. wide (15:8). This would vary, more or less, according to the column width of the march. It would take hours to cross.
Now back to where we left off, and that was with Deuteronomy 32: 10, "he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye." Now some more Scripture:
7 And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
20 Thou gavest also thy good spirit to instruct them, and withheldest not thy manna from their mouth, and gavest them water for their thirst.
Psalm 147:19, 20
19 He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel. 20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise Ye the Lord.
It should be apparent from this last verse that Yahweh is not interested in any other people except Israel. When all of these "Churches" are trying to convert all of these blacks, Mongolians and what have you, they are literally throwing their money and time down a rat hole! Now for a little more Scripture:
8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings.
8 For thus saith the Lord of host; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.
I would like to quote a short excerpt from Matthew Henry’s Commentary to show you how in spite of what the Bible says that "He hath not dealt so with any nation", meaning any other nation, how they try to get these heathen included under the Covenant. Now I do quote from Matthew Henry from time to time and when he has something good to contribute, I will quote him. But if its garbage, I will either point it out as garbage or I will not quote him. Here is some of Matthew Henry’s garbage, and this is in reference to Psalm 147:20 (volume 3, page 782):
"He hath not dealt so with every nation, not with any nation; and, as for his judgments, they have not known them, nor are likely to know them till the Messiah shall come and take down the partition-wall between Jew and Gentile, that the gospel may be preached to every creature." Other nations had plenty of outward good things; some nations were very rich, others had pompous powerful princes and polite literature, but none were blessed with God’s statutes and judgments as Israel were. Let Israel therefore praise the Lord in the observation of these statutes. (I underlined the garbage.)
You will notice how he tries to get "the gospel preached to every creature" here. This is also one very big problem that I see in Identity; many are trying their best to include all of these heathen, and it doesn’t square with the Scripture! When it says that Israel is "the apple of his eye", it means the very center of Yahweh’s eye, the pupil! You will notice. in this passage, it doesn’t say that the blacks or Mongolians are the "apple of his eye." There is a "partition-wall" all right, but it isn’t to bring in the heathen! Now lets go to verse 11 of Deuteronomy 32 and you are probably asking the question, What has all of this have to do with Israel’s end? Well, we will be getting to it in due time.
11 As an eagle srirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings.
You will notice here that it speaks of "an eagle." The "eagle" is Israel’s symbol exclusively. Lets now see some corresponding Scriptures:
Exodus 19:4, 5
4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself. 5 Now 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.
9 In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.
Hosea 11: 3
I taught Ephraim also to go, taking them by the arms; but they knew not that I healed them.
The similitude of how the eagle takes care of its young with tender loving care and strong affection for her offspring is very analogous of how Yahweh watched over Israel, especially in the wilderness. Eagles really do have a strong affection for their young and they demonstrate it by protecting them, making provision for them and teaching them to fly. The eagle can be seen fluttering and stirring over her nest of young taking the utmost care. She carefully forces them from their nest and encourages them to stretch their wings, conditioning and strengthening them in preparation to learn to fly. Whereupon she takes them on her own wing and accustoms them to flight. Yahweh did this also to Israel for they were in love with their slavery to Egypt and really didn’t want to leave it as the young of the eagle are hesitant to leave their nest. But once given a taste of the freedom of flight the young birds turn toward the wind, and like Israel after leaving Egypt and getting a taste of freedom, are ready to take their place in the world. Israel found that freedom and liberty were addictive and no longer desired to return to the house of bondage. It was Yahweh that led them into this new found freedom. Now I never saw in the Bible where Yahweh ever did or promised to do all of these things for the blacks or Mongolians! Now lets take up Deuteronomy 32, verse 12:
12 So the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.
To be noticed here is: they had not yet become contaminated with Baal worship. They hadn’t yet looked around and observed the gods of the heathen around them. We have to ask the question: What was so attractive about these heathen religions? What was there to allure them to forsake Yahweh? Well, it was probably the same thing as you see on television today, sex, violence, vanity and fleshly allurements. No doubt, it was among the younger generation that these things became such an attraction. No doubt, also, it was a matter of a lack of instruction on the part the older generation. Maybe, too, like today, there could have been a third party influencing the younger generation against their parent’s teachings. There were serpents in that day too! Maybe it was like today, the teachers don’t want to be responsible for instructing the children, the parents sure don’t want the responsibility either, so I guess if the children don’t get any instruction, it’s the baby sitter’s fault! And in most cases today, its the television that is doing the baby sitting. The parents take the attitude: here’s twenty bucks, go play in the traffic. Verse 13 goes on to say:
13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock.
Lets make a survey of some of the other Scriptures that may enhance the understanding of this verse. There is probably more to this verse than appears on the surface:
14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.
11 And Ephraim is as an heifer that is taught, and loveth to tread out the corn; but I passed over upon her fair neck: I will make Ephraim to ride; Judah shall plow, and Jacob shall break his clods.
33 He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet, and setteth me upon my high places.
6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
29 Happy art thou , O Israel: who is like unto thee, O people saved by the Lord, the shield of thy help, and who is the sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places.
19 The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me walk upon mine high places.
8 A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey.
Isaiah 48: 21
21 And they thirsted not when he led them through the deserts: he caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them: he clave the rock also, and the waters gushed out.
8 Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
As we take a look at verse Deuteronomy 32:13, we will notice that Israel, when they left Egypt for the Promised Land was riding on "the high places of the earth." With Yahweh in charge, they could stand up to anyone. Are we, as Israel, in that position today? The answer is: NO! Anyone who understands the times today, understands that the enemy, the Jews (the serpents) are in charge of everything. The Jews are the head and Israel is the tail. There was a time when we were riding in "the high places of the earth", but not now. It just came over the news this week that the United States had given the Edomite Jews in the so-called sand box of the Middle East called falsely Israeli (the Israel lie) 100 million dollars. When those Jews donate us (the United States) 100 million dollars, then, you will know we are "riding the high places of the earth" again. The real Israel (the United States) is getting shit and shoved in it. I would like you to take notice of the Scripture above, Isaiah 58:14. It says that our riding on the "high places of the earth" depends on whether or not we keep the proper Sabbath —— read the rest of the chapter. Well, you say, How important can that be? What difference does a little thing like that make? I will tell you this: If keeping the proper Sabbath (which is Yahweh’s Sabbath) is dependent on whether we ever again "ride the high places of the earth", then, ITS PRETTY DAMN IMPORTANT!!! Now I don’t often make predictions because I believe that there isn’t any new prophecy, but I will say this: Until we understand the proper Sabbath, and we start honoring it, we are going to continue to have our noses rubbed in the dirt! It also says in Isaiah 58:14, "for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it." You can be sure, if HE has "spoken" it, HE is not going to unspeak it. You can take Yahweh’s word for it, and not one iota or tittle of this promise is going to be changed. And you can complain, complain, complain about the conspiracy and its not going to do one little bit of good until you (and me) understand that what Yahweh has spoken, HE has spoken — its there, its not going away. What Sabbath? you figure it out if you are tired of this curse. As I see it, we have the choice between Constantine’s sabbath or Yahweh’s Sabbath.
Matthew Henry, volume 4, page 342, has some interesting comments on Isaiah 58:14, and this verse concerns itself with how we honor the Sabbath:
We shall have the honour of it: I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, which denotes not only a great security (as that, ch. xxxiii. 16, He shall dwell on high), but great dignity and advancement "Thou shalt ride in state, shalt appear conspicuous, and the eyes of all thy neighbours shall be upon thee." It was said of Israel, when God led them triumphantly out of Egypt, that he made them to ride on the high places of the earth ... Those that honour God and his sabbath he will thus honour.
In this verse we have another reference to another passage that should be included here, Isaiah 33:15,16:
15 He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; 16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rock: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.
Another verse mentioned above is Hosea 11:3. Here are some comments by Matthew Henry concerning this passage of Scripture, volume 4, pages 1180-1181:
He had a kindness for them when they were young (v. 1): When Israel was a child then I loved him; when they began to multiply into a nation in Egypt God then set his love upon them, and chose them because he loved them, because he would love them, Deut. vii. 7,8. When they were weak and helpless as children, foolish and froward as children, when they were outcast, the children exposed, then God loved them; he pitied them, and testified his goodwill to them; he bore them as the nurse does the sucking child, nourished them, and suffered their manners. ... He delivered them out of the house of bondage: I called my son out of Egypt, because a son, because a beloved son. When God demanded Israel’s discharge form Pharaoh, he called them his son, his first born. Note, Those whom God loves he calls out of bondage of sin and Satan into the glorious liberty of his children. ... He gave them a good education, took care of them, took pains with them, not only as a father or tutor, but, such is the condescension of divine grace, as a mother or nurse (v. 3): I taught Ephraim also to go, as a child in leading-strings is taught. When they were in the wilderness God led them by the pillar of cloud and fire, showed them the way in which they should go, and bore them up, taking them by the arms. He taught them to go in the way of the commandments, by the instructions of the ceremonial law, which were as tutors and governors to the people under age. He took them by the arms, to guide them, that they might not stray, and to hold them up, that they might not stumble and fall. ... When any thing was amiss with them, or they were ever so little out of order, he was their physician: "I healed them; I not only took a tender care of them (a friend may do that), but wrought an effectual cure: it is a God only that can do that. I am the Lord that healeth thee.
I would like to quote some comments from the Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, Abridged by Ralph Earle on page 229:
10. He- the Lord found him- Jacob, in his descendants, in a desert land- the wilderness. He Led him about forty years in the wilderness, Deut. viii. 2, or yesobebenhu; "he compassed him about," i.e., God defended them on all hands, and in all places, He instructed him- taught them the astonishing law through which we have now almost passed, giving them statutes and judgments which for depth of wisdom and correct political adaptation to times, places, and circumstances, are so wondrously constructed as essentially to secure the comfort , peace, and happiness of the individual, and the prosperity and permanency of the moral system. He kept him as the apple of his eye. Nothing can exceed the force and delicacy of this expression. As deeply concerned and as carefully attentive as man can be for the safety of his eyesight, so was God for the protection and welfare of this people. How amazing this condescension!
11. As an eagle stirreth up her nest, flutters over her brood to execute them to fly; or, as some think, disturbs her nest to oblige the young ones to leave it; so God by His plagues in Egypt obliged the Israelites, otherwise very reluctant to leave a place which appeared by His judgments to have devoted to destruction. fluttereth over her young. Yeracheph, broodeth over them, communicating to them a portion of her own vital warmth. So did God, by the influences of His Spirit, enlighten, encourage, and strengthen their minds. It is the same word which is used in Gen. i. 2. Spreadeth abroad her wings. In order, not only to teach them how to fly, but to bear them when weary. For to this fact there seems an allusion, it having been generally believed that the eagle, through extraordinary affection for her young, takes them upon her back when they are weary of flying. The same figure is used in Exod. xix. 4.
12. So the Lord alone did lead him. By His power, and by His only, were they brought out of Egypt, and supported in the wilderness. And there was no strange god. They had help from no other quarter. The Egyptian idols were not able to save their votaries; but God not only saved His people, but destroyed the Egyptians.
13. He made him to ride. Yarkibehu, "he will cause him to ride." All the verbs here are in the future tense, because this is a prophecy of the prosperity they should possess in the Promised Land. The Israelites were to ride- exult, on the high places, the mountains and hills of their land, in which they are promised the highest degrees of prosperity, as even the rocky part of the country should be rendered fertile by the peculiar benediction of God. Such honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock. This promise states that even the most barren places in the country should yield an abundance of aromatic flowers, from which the bees should collect honey in abundance; and even the tops of the rocks afford sufficient support for olive oil trees, from the fruit of which they should extract oil in abundance; and all this should be occasioned by the peculiar blessing of God upon the land.
This pretty much completes the comments on verse 13. Now we will consider the 14th verse of the 32nd chapter of Deuteronomy which reads as follows:
14 Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape.
It appears from this verse, that Israel had all they wanted to eat. It appears that times were good, the barns were full, there was plenty of money in the checking account and no one was hurting much financially. Of course, they didn’t have checking accounts in those days, but they probably had a lot of silver and gold saved up in their socks. They were probably starting to think: (By the strength of my arm have I acquired all of these things.) No doubt every family was trying to see if they could outdo their neighbor in production. And, of course, this would show in whoever was dressed the best and had the latest model chariot. Do you suppose they had anyone by the name of Jones in those days? Not only is this verse literal, but it is also idiomatic language for prosperity. Another typical passage with such an idiomatic meaning is found in Job 29:6 which says:
6 When I washed my steps with butter, and the rock poured me out rivers of oil.
What Job is saying is: My dairy abounds to such a degree, I could, if I wished, wash my steps with butter. And my olive-yards are so fruitful (or in this case were so fruitful) that it seemed as if the rock poured out rivers of oil. Matthew Henry’s Commentary has this to say about Deuteronomy 32:14 (volume 1, page 865):
Other productions of Canaan are mentioned, v14. Such abundance and such variety of wholesome food (and every thing the best in its kind) that every meal might be a feast if they pleased: excellent bread made of the best corn, here called the kidneys of wheat (for a grain of wheat is not unlike a kidney), butter and milk in abundance, the flesh of cattle well fed, and for their drink, no worse than the pure blood of the grape; so indulgent a Father was God to them, and so kind a benefactor.
Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, Abridged by Ralph Earle has this comment on verse 14 of Deuteronomy 32. It can be found on page 229:
14 Fat of kidneys of wheat. Almost every person knows that the kidney is enveloped in a coat of the purest fat in the body of the animal, for which several anatomical reasons might be given. As the kidney itself is to the abundantly surrounding fat, so is the germ of the grain to the lobes. The expression here may be considered as a very strong and peculiarly happy figure to point out the finest wheat, containing the healthiest and most vigorous germ, growing in a very large and nutritive grain; and consequently the whole figure points out to us a species of wheat, equally excellent for both seed and bread. Pure blood of the grapes. Red wine, or the pure juice of whatever color, expressed from the grapes, without any adulteration or mixture with water; blood here is synonymous with juice. This intimates that their vines should be of the best kind, and their wine in abundance, and of the most delicious flavor.
Now lets go on to verse 15 of Deuteronomy 32:
15 But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.
I am going to quote again from Matthew Henry. As long as it is not garbage, I will continue to use his comments:
These people were called Jeshurun — an upright people (so some), a seeing people, so others: but they soon lost the reputation both of their knowledge and of their righteousness; for being well-fed, 1 They waxed fat and grew thick, that is, they indulged themselves in all manner of luxury and gratifications of their appetites, as if they had nothing to do but to make provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lust of it. They grew fat, that is, they grew big and unwieldy, unmindful of business, and unfit for it; dull and stupid, careless and senseless; and this was the effect of their plenty. ... 2 They kicked; they grew proud and insolent, and lifted up the heel even against God himself. If God rebuked them, either by his prophets or by his providence, they kicked against the goad as an untamed heifer, or a bullock unaccustomed to the yoke, and in their rage persecuted the prophets, and flew in the face of providence itself. And thus he forsook God that made him (not paying due respect to his Creator, nor answering the ends of his creation), and put an intolerable contempt upon the rock of his salvation, as if he were not indebted to him for any past favors, nor had any dependence upon him for the future. Those that made a god of themselves and a god of their bellies, in pride and wantonness, and cannot bear to be told of it, certainly thereby forsake God and show how lightly they esteem him.
Now lets first check out this term, "Jeshurun." The Strong’s Concordance has this to say:
#3484 Yeshûrûwn, yesh-oo-roon’ ; from 3474; upright; Jeshurun, a symbol, name for Israel:- Jeshurun.
Now lets take a look at some other Scriptures where the term "Jeshurun" is used:
5 And he was king in Jeshurun, when the heads of the people and the tribes of Israel were gathered together.
26 There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on thy sky.
1 Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen: 2 Thus saith the Lord that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen. 3 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessings upon thine offspring: (Notice: Nothing about blacks, Jews or Mongolians here).
Now lets consider some passages of Scripture related to this 15th verse of Deuteronomy 32:
10 And it shall be, when the Lord thy god shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not, 11 And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full; 12 Then beware lest thou forget the Lord, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
8 When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the Lord thy god for the good land which he hath given thee. 11 Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and statutes, which I command thee this day: 12 Lest when thou hast eaten and are full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein; 13 And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied; 14 Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the Lord thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
16 And the Lord said unto Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with thy fathers; and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go to be among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them. 17 Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide my face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they will say in that day, Are not these evils come upon us, because our God is not among us? 18 And I will surely hide my face in that day for the evils which they shall have wrought, in that they are turned unto other gods. 19 Now therefore write ye this song for you, and teach it the children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for me against the children of Israel. 20 For when I shall have brought them into the land which I sware unto their fathers, that floweth with milk and honey; and they shall have eaten and filled themselves, and waxen fat then will they turn unto other gods, and serve them, and provoke me, and break my covenant. 21 And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles are befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a witness; for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed: for I know their imagination which they go about, even now, before I have brought them into the land which I sware.
And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served Baalim: 12 And they forsook the Lord God of their fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the Lord to Anger, 13 And they forsook the Lord and served Baal and Ashtaroth. 14 And the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel, and he delivered them into the hands of spoilers that spoiled them, and he sold them into the hands of their enemies round about, so that they could not any longer stand before their enemies.
6 And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the Lord, and served Baalim, and Ashtaroth, and the gods of Syria, and the gods of Zidon, and the gods of Moab, and the gods of the children of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines, and forsook the Lord, and served not him.
25 And they took strong cities, and a fat land, and possessed houses full of all goods. wells digged, vineyards, and oliveyards, and fruit trees in abundance: so they did eat and were filled, and became fat and delighted themselves in great goodness.
4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.
5 Thus saith the Lord, What iniquity have your fathers found in me, that they are gone far from me, and have walked after vanity, and are become vain?
7 How shall I pardon thee for this? thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots’ houses. (They are still assembling themselves in "harlot’s houses" called "churches" today.)
There is an interesting comment by the Matthew Henry’s Commentary on Deuteronomy 33:5, volume 1, page 875, about the word "Jeshurun":
They must owe Moses a great benefactor to their nation, in that he commanded them the law; for, though it came from the hand of God, it went through the hand of Moses. ... He was king in Jeshurun. Having commanded them the law, as long as he lived he took care to see it observed and put in execution; and they were very happy in having such a king, who ruled them, and went in and out before them at all times, but did in a special manner look great when the heads of the people were gathered together in parliament, as it were, and Moses was president among them. Some understand this of god himself; he did then declare himself their King when he gave them the law, and he continued so as long as they were Jeshurun, an upright people, and till they rejected him, 1 Sam. xii. 12. But it seems rather to be understood of Moses. A good government is a great blessing to any people, and what they have reason to be very thankful for; and that constitution is very happy which as Israel’s which as ours, divides the power between the king in Jeshurun and the heads of the tribes, when they are gathered together.
What is interesting here about this "Song of Moses" in the 32nd chapter of Deuteronomy is: it has never, as yet, been used as a "witness" against Israel. Israel to this very present day has not forsaken the gods of "Baalim and Ashtaroth." You can see here that this "Song of Moses" is not some old outdated thing, but is very much up-to-date. So we have something here to look forward to.
Yahweh indicates in Isaiah 44:1 that He has chosen Jacob called Israel. He doesn’t say anything about blacks, Mongolians or any other sub-races. It is directed toward "Jacob my servant and Israel whom I have chosen." It goes on to say, I "formed thee from the womb." Yahweh doesn’t say that about any other race, so these other races must be some other types of beings with a different origins. Yahweh promises to "pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessings upon thine offspring." Yahweh doesn’t say He is going to pour His Spirit and Blessings on the blacks or Mongolians or whatever, but only Israel!!!
Now that we have pretty well covered verse 15 of Deuteronomy, lets take up verses 16, 17 and 18 as follows:
16 They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger, 17 They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. 18 Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.
We have already covered much of the origin of the various "strange gods" which Israel worshipped, but in verse 17 it indicates they "sacrificed unto devils, not to God." It sounds like they might have gotten mixed-up with the Charismatic Movement of their day. Well, in 1st Timothy 4:1-3, we have something called "doctrines of devils." This passage reads:
1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
It is quite apparent that these "devils" and "seducing spirits" spoken of here are something other than some Halloween style of ghosts. We know the religion that has this teaching of "forbidding to marry", but it has been only in the last few years that the Eastern influence of religion which teaches to "abstain from meats" has been storming into the United States. The Catholic religion does teach to "abstain from meats" on certain days, so, maybe, this is what it is speaking about here. When it is speaking of "the latter times", you can see that it can cover a large period of time. We can also better understand just what these "seducing spirits", and "doctrine of devils" is all about. I would say that our present day "Churches", both Protestant and Catholic, have these "seducing spirits" and "doctrine of devils’ spoken of here (some more than others) in abundance. Some use this passage of Scripture to put approval on eating unclean foods, but it is not saying that. It is just saying that you don’t have to "abstain" from eating clean meats. It is strange how some people can twist the Scriptures in order to get their play pretty ideas sanctioned. This passage does not suggest, in any way, that one can eat the unclean meats — it just says that you don’t have to "abstain" from clean meats or other clean foods. You can see here that a "devil" or "seducing spirit" can simply mean a false doctrine or teaching. There is a person who is a "devil", and he is the Jew.
The Strong’s Concordance has this to say about the word "devils" in Deuteronomy 32: 17:
#7700 shêd, shade; from 7736; a dæmon (as malignant):- devil.
This word is used here and in Psalm 106:37 only. It would be well if we would compare this verse with the one in Psalm 106 and we will add verse 38 which reads:
37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, 38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.
Now we understand just what kind of devils it is speaking of here. It seems that today we are sacrificing our sons and daughters to the Idol of "Free Choice" which is the same old Canaanite Jew devil god!
There is an Apostolic doctrine about the devil or Satan. The apostles taught that Satan was a personal being, the prince of evil spirits or demons. In the Gospels, the "devil" or "Satan" is referred to as "Beelzebub." This prince of demons was no doubt one of the angels who kept not their own principality, (Jude 6; 2 Peter 2:4). He is referred to as "the prince of the [this] world." The power of Satan is contrasted with that of Yahweh as "darkness" as opposed to "light." The devil uses his power to seduce men and women to sin (break Yahweh’s Laws). He uses evil men as his instruments or ministers who "fashion" themselves as "ministers of righteousness" even as he "fashioned himself as an angel of light." The devil is represented as instigating opposition to Yahweh’s Kingdom by blinding the minds of men and thus making them therefore of no use to Yahweh. A close connection with this opposition, the Jews are called the "synagogue of Satan" (Revelation 2:9; 3:9). When we talk about devils, we usually mean "evil spirits." I would like to comment on some passages of Scripture concerning "evil spirits."
43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. 45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. 25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. 26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.
WAKE UP AGAIN!!! WAKE UP AGAIN!!! WE HAVE A GOOD ONE HERE!!!
We really do have a good one here. If there ever has been a passage of Scripture that has been taken wrong in the past, it is this one. I remember I heard a Charismatic talk on this Scripture one time on a audio cassette tape. Anyway, you probably know how they are always casting devils out of everybody and everything, its their trademark. Well, with seven times more demons than normal to be cast out, you can imagine how he, with delight, charged full speed into this one. I would hate to say how many times in the past I have heard sermons by good meaning fundamentalist hell, fire and brimstone preachers make a case out of this one. It was generally a misapplied sermon on some poor old "backslider" who probably broke one of their "Church rules", and now he was in a hell of a shape. Well, lets take a good look at this parable and see what it is really all about. The key to understanding these passages is the verse found in Matthew chapter 12. There are a few words here that are not found in Luke chapter 11. These important words are "Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation." This kind of narrows down the field a little bit. Yahshua was directing His remarks here to the serpent seed-line of the Jews! It is important here to understand the difference between the good figs and the bad figs of Judah. You can find out the difference in Jeremiah 24: 1-10. The bad figs here are called "naughty figs." The difference between the good figs and the bad figs is the fact that the bad figs had committed miscegenation with every damn race in that area of the world and through this had acquired the blood line of Cain. Most of the good figs of Judah had been carried away to Assyria along with the Ten Northern Tribes. You have to appreciate here just who Yahshua was talking about in this parable. What Yahshua was saying to these serpent devils was this: When you were among the House of Judah, before you were taken to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar, you were devils then. Since you went up to Babylon and brought the Talmud ("traditions of the elders") back with you, you are seven times more the children of Satan than before. In other words, the Talmud represents the "seven other spirits more wicked than himself." You will have to admit that the Talmud is a very evil religious book of the Jews! From all of this we should have a better idea of just what an "evil spirit" is. In this case the "evil spirits" are Jewish ideas. And in this case, observing what is going on today, there are a lot of Jewish "evil spirits" on the loose. There are a lot more than seven now! Maybe, for instance, we need to cast out the income tax demon, the abortion demon, the World Counsel of Churches demon and, How about the Federal Reserve demon? I hope you can see here how symbolic the Bible is.
Well, we are still talking about "sacrificing to devils" in Deuteronomy 32:17. Lets take a look at what happens when we start this practice of "sacrificing to devils." Lets go to 1st Kings 14:22-24:
22 And Judah did evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they had committed, above all that their fathers had done. 23 For they built them high places, and images, and groves, on every high hill, and under every green tree. 24 And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord cast out before the children of Israel.
You can see here that these kind of practices led Judah to sodomy. For another example of what "sacrificing to devils" leads to, lets go to Ezekiel 8:5-18:
5 Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry. 6 He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again and thou shalt see greater abominations. 7 And he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall. 8 Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I digged in the wall, behold a door. 9 And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here. 10 So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beast, and all the idols of the house of Israel, portrayed upon the wall round about. 11 And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up. 12 Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, The Lord seeth us not; the Lord hath forsaken the earth. 13 He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do. 14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord’s house, which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. 15 Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again and thou shalt see greater abominations than these. 16 And he brought me into the inner court of the Lord’s house, and behold, at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their back toward the temple of the Lord, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east. 17 Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abomination which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and lo, they put the branch to their nose. 18 Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.
AWAKE AGAIN!!! AWAKE AGAIN!!! LETS SEE WHAT WE HAVE HERE!!!
I don’t know if you can see what we have here, but it is the First Congregation of the Catholic Church of Israel. Well this may not be the first that Israel adopted the pagan religion, but this was a pretty good start. This is probably the first place where it is all spelled out so well. Now if you are of a Protestant background, don’t get all puffed up with egotism, as you’re just a chip off of the Catholic block, you’re practicing the pagan religion too. Today these so-called "Churches" are practicing the same religion as they were in Ezekiel’s vision. Not only were they practicing this religion, but the time of the year they were doing it can be pointed out. It was as a time today we call "Christmas." Lets take a look at this religion and see what we can find.
First of all, lets see what "this image of jealousy" in verse 5 is all about. I am going to quote from Alexander Hislop’s, The Two Babylons on page 88 which has a footnote about this passage of Scripture:
There have been many speculations about what this "image of jealousy" could be. But when it is known that the grand feature of ancient idolatry was just the worship of the Mother and the child, and that child as the Son of God incarnate, all is plain. Compare verses 3 and 5 with verse 14, and it will be seen that the "women weeping for Tammuz" were close beside the image of jealousy.
Now to further clear up just who this "Tammuz" represented, I am going to quote from Ralph Woodrow’s, Babylon Mystery Religion, pages 9 & 10:
But not only was Nimrod against the true God, he was also priest of devil-worship and of heathenism of the worse kind, as we shall see. Then finally, Nimrod, the priest-king of Babylon, died. According to the old stories, his body was cut into pieces, burnt, and the pieces were sent to various areas. Similar practices are mentioned even in the Bible (Judges 19:29; 1 Samuel 11:7). The death of Nimrod was greatly mourned by the people of Babylon. But though Nimrod had died, the Babylonian religion of which he played a prominent part, continued on and developed further under the leadership of his wife.
After Nimrod’s death, his wife, Queen Semiramis, claimed that he was now the Sun-god. And later, when this adulterous and idolatrous woman gave birth to an illegitimate son, she claimed that this son, Tammuz by name, was Nimrod reborn, ... Now the queen-Mother of Tammuz had no doubt heard the prophecy of the coming Messiah to be born of a woman, for this truth was known from earliest times (See Gen. 3:15). Satan had first seduced a woman, Eve; but later through a woman was to come the savior — our Lord Jesus Christ. Satan, the great counterfeiter, also knew much about the Divine Plan. Thus, he began to set up counterfeits of the true plan centuries before Jesus came. Queen Semiramis, as an instrument in Satan’s hand, claimed that her son was supernaturally conceived and that he was the promised seed, the "saviour." However, not only was the child worshipped, but the woman, the MOTHER, was also worshipped as much (or more) than the son! As we will see in the pages that follow, Nimrod, Semiramis, and Tammuz were used as puppets in Satan’s hand to produce false religion — though often appearing as the true! -— and this corrupt system filled the world.
Much of the Babylonian worship was carried on through mysterious symbols - thus it was a "Mystery" religion. The golden calf, for example, was a symbol of Tammuz, son of the Sun-god. Since Nimrod was believed to be the Sun-god or Baal, fire was considered as his earthly representation. Thus, as we shall see, candles and ritual fires were lighted in his honour. In other forms, Nimrod was symbolized by sun-symbols, fish, trees, pillars, and animals.
Remember, it was the "golden" or "molten" calf that Israel had trouble with. I said above, this particular time of Ezekiel’s vision was "Christmas", and I think I can prove that it was. It says in part of verse 17, "and lo, they put the branch to their nose." The question here is: What is this "branch?" I am going to quote again from Alexander Hislop’s, The Two Babylons, on pages 98 & 99, and I think you will see what the "branch" is all about and thus know by this the time of the year:
Therefore, the 25th of December, the day that was observed at Rome as the day when the victorious god reappeared on earth, was held at the Natalis invicti solis. "The birth-day of the unconquered Sun." Now the Yule Log is the dead stock of Nimrod, deified as the sun-god, but cut down by his enemies; the Christmas-tree is Nimrod redivivus — the slain god come to life again. In the light reflected by the above statement on customs that still linger among us, the origin of which has been lost in the midst of hoar antiquity, let the reader look at the singular practice still kept up in the South on Christmas-eve, of kissing under the misletoe bough. That misletoe bough in the Druidic superstition, which as we have seen, was derived from Babylon was a representation of the Messiah, "The man the branch," The misletoe was regarded as a divine branch — a branch that came from heaven, and grew upon a tree that sprang out of the earth. Thus by the engrafting of the celestial branch into the earthly tree, heaven and earth, that sin had severed, were joined together, and thus the misletoe bough became the token of Divine reconciliation to man, the kiss being the well-known token of pardon and reconciliation.
Another short quotation from Hislop:
In many countries the boar was sacrificed to the god, for the injury a boar was fabled to have done him. According to one version of the story of the death of Adonis, or Tammuz, it was as we have seen, in consequence of a wound from the tusk of a boar that he died.
Now the winter solstice was not the only time to celebrate Tammuz. He was also celebrated at the spring and autumn equinoxes as we shall see. Now quoting again from Hislop. page 105:
Among the Pagans this Lent seems to have been an indispensable preliminary to the great annual festival in commemoration of the death and resurrection of Tammuz, which was celebrated by alternate weeping and rejoicing, and which, in many countries, was considerably later than the Christian festival, being observed in Palestine and Assyria in June, therefore called the "month of Tammuz;" in Egypt, about the middle of May, and in Britain, some time in April. To conciliate the Pagans to nominal Christianity, Rome, pursuing its usual policy, took measures to get the Christian and Pagan festivals amalgamated, and, by a complicated but skilful adjustment of the calendar, it was found no difficult matter, in general, to get Paganism and Christianity — now far sunk in idolatry - in this as in so many other things, to shake hands.
Now to quote Hislop about the summer solstice on pages 113 & 114:
The Feast of the Nativity of St. John is set down in the Papal calendar for the 24th of June, or Midsummer-day. The very same period was equally memorable in the Babylonian calendar as that of one of its most celebrated festivals. It was at Midsummer, or the summer solstice, that the month called in Chaldea, Syria, and Phenicia by the name of "Tammuz" began; and on the first day — that is, on or about the 24th of June — one of the grand original festivals of Tammuz was celebrated. ... The Gregorian policy was carefully observed; and so Midsummer-day, that had been hallowed by Paganism to the worship of Tammuz, was incorporated as a sacred Christian festival in the Roman calendar.
But still a question was to be determined, What was to be the name of this Pagan festival, when it was baptised, and admitted into the ritual of Roman Christianity? To call it by its old name of Bel or Tammuz, at the early period when it seems to have been adopted, would have been too bold. To call it by the name of Christ was difficult, inasmuch as there was nothing special in His history at that period to commemorate. But the subtlety of the agents of the Mystery of Iniquity was not to be baffled. If the name of Christ could not be conveniently tacked to it, what should hinder its being called by the name of His forerunner, John the Baptist?
There is another place where I want to quote Hislop, and that is about the so-called "Christian cross" on page 197. You may be surprised as to its true meaning. I think we should take a real good look at just who and what we are worshipping:
The same sign of the cross that Rome now worships was used in the Babylonian Mysteries, was applied by Paganism to the same magic purposes, was honoured with the same honours. That which is now called the Christian cross was originally no Christian emblem at all, but was the mystic Tau of the Chaldeans and Egyptians - the true original form of the letter T - the initial of the name of Tammuz.
There is much much more that could be said about this 8th chapter of Ezekiel here. There is one more thing I want to point out in the 16th verse which says, "behold, at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the Lord, and their faces toward the east." It should be apparent here that whenever you or I turn our faces toward the "east", we are turning our backs to Yahweh! Is it any wonder that Yahweh was angry and said, "though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them." Like Judah of old, Yahweh is still not listening, and as a result, our side is not winning. If you think we are winning, take a look at what the government is doing to our own people and getting away with it. There is, as yet, no justice for our side. The reason we are not winning is because we, like Judah, are still worshipping the sun — we still have our faces toward the "east." We, as a whole, are still eating the "unclean thing" — shaking our fist at Yahweh. As long as we persist in these ways, we are going to continue to lose, you can count on it.
Let’s take a moment to check our position of where we are in this study. Our theme was Isaiah 17:10 about the "pleasant plants" and "strange slips." We were at the last two verses of Isaiah chapter 17 trying to figure out what Israel’s end would be. We are now working our way through Deuteronomy chapter 32 to see what that end will be. You might think that the book of Revelation would be a better place to look, but it is not. Most all of the book of Revelation is already fulfilled with a major exception of the invasion of Gog and Magog. No, Deuteronomy chapter 32 is a much better place to look for this. In verses 19 and 20, the subject of Israel’s end starts to be addressed and reads as follows:
19 And when the Lord saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters. 20 And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.
This bring us to verse 21, and notice the underlined portion here:
21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
Notice here that Yahweh says He will provoke Israel with "those which are not a people" and "provoke them to anger with a foolish nation." This "people" and "foolish nation" are the Jews. Today true Israel is finally getting "angry" with this "foolish nation." At least those who know what the Jews are doing are "angry." Lets read from verses 22 to 26 of Deuteronomy 32 to see what Yahweh says He will do to His People as long as they persist in worshipping Baal:
22 For a fire is kindled in mine anger. And shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. 23 I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them. 24 They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beast upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust. 25 The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs. 26 I said I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men.
Now lets take a look at this passage and compare it with some other related Scriptures. First of all, notice it says here, "For a fire is kindled in mine anger." Lets see what kind of things happen when Yahweh gets "angry." Don’t think this thing is not serious.
20 The Lord will not spare him, but then the anger of the Lord and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and the Lord shall blot out his name from under heaven.
Numbers 16: 19-33
19 And Korah gathered all of the congregation against them unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the glory of the Lord appeared unto all the congregation. 20 And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, 21 Separate yourselves from among the congregation, that I may consume them in a moment. 22 And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation? 23 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 24 Speak unto the congregation, saying, Get you up from about the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram. 25 And Moses rose up and went unto Dathan and Abiram; and the elders of Israel followed him. 26 And he spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest ye be consumed in all their sins. 27 So they gat up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, on every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and stood in the door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their little children. 28 And Moses said, Hereby ye shall know that the Lord hath sent me to do all these works; for I have not done them of mine own hand. 29 If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after the visitation of all men; then the Lord hath not sent me. 30 But if the Lord make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the Lord. 31 And it came to pass, as he made an end of speaking all of these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them: 32 And the earth opened her mouth and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods. 33 They and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation (wives, children and all).
Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth. 8 There went up smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it. 9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet. 10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: he did fly upon the wings of the wind. 11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies. 12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire. 13 The Lord also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire. 14 Yea, he sent his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them. 15 Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O Lord, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.
This last passage, no doubt, is speaking of how He will appear to His enemies. Here is another passage that describes how Yahweh will deal with Israel’s enemies:
8 Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee. 9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the Lord shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them. 10 Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from the children of men (wives, children and all). 11 For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform. 12 Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them. 13 Be thou exalted, Lord, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power.
If you really want to know how Yahweh deals with His enemies, read the 83rd Psalm. They are all mentioned there especially "The tabernacles of "Edom" and "Amalek" which today are known as Jews. Another passage worth mentioning here is the 97th Psalm which speaks of the destruction of the enemy. Also it speaks of the coming of Yahweh, where His anger will be vented toward people that eat a certain diet, Isaiah 66:15-17 which reads:
15 For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with his chariots, like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. 16 For by fire and by sword will the Lord plead with all flesh: and the slain of the Lord shall be many. 17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse (rat family), shall be consumed together, saith the Lord.
Do you think this "coming" that is spoken of here is future? Well, I hate to disappoint you, but this one has already happened. This is speaking of the Jews in Babylon (the evil figs of Jeremiah chapter 24). You really have to understand the place and time period of this passage. While this passage is speaking of things that have already been fulfilled, there are connotations of a future time when Yahweh will deal with His enemies in the day of His vengeance when secret wickedness will be brought to light, an account long overdue. The eating of swine’s flesh here is, no doubt, representative of those, in our day, who have only contempt for Yahweh’s Laws. In those days, there were both the good and bad figs of Judah, and we have to understand this. The good figs were the ones that kept their racial purity. The bad figs were the ones that mixed among the other races of that area, Edomites, Canaanites and the other scum of the serpent seed-line. Now, apparently, both the good and bad figs of Judah were practicing a religion that was displeasing to Yahweh. No doubt, according to the language of this passage, the (bad fig Jews) were the ringleaders of this movement. The Dake’s Bible has an interesting annotation concerning the 17th verse:
Returning to the subject of Israel’s sins again, God refers in particular to idolatry in the garden with their asherah or totem-pole type of idol called a tree here (v 17). See Asherah, p. 106. Such centers of idolatry were in the midst of wooden places or sacred groves and in high places. The idea here is that, in the future fulfillment of this (it is past), people will seek to be sanctified and ceremonially purified through swine and mouse sacrifices to idols-things which are both unclean and forbidden to be used as food or sacrifice (Lev. 11:7, 41-42).
Now lets go to the note on page 106 of the Dake’s Bible that this annotation speaks about:
Heb. Asherah, a pillar or image of wood. It was set up with the image of Baal, and worshipped by libidinous rites and lascivious practices. Asherah is always rendered grove and groves in the A.V., but retained as a proper name in the R.V. The word comes from the root ashar, to be straight, upright, erect. The pillar was set upright or erect in the ground like a totem pole. It was either a living tree with the top cut off and the trunk fashioned into a certain shape (Dt. 16:21), or a log fashioned into an idol and set erect in the ground (1 Ki. 14:15; 16:33; Isa. 17:8). Though usually made of wood (Judg. 6:26) it was perhaps, in some cases, made of stone. Such poles could be cut down (Ex. 34:13), plucked up (Mic. 5:14), burnt (Dt. 12:3), and broken in pieces (2 Chr. 34:4). That they were not groves of trees is clear from 2 Ki. 17:10 where they are forbidden to be set up under any green tree.
Originally the idol was worshipped as a symbol of the tree of life, but later perverted to mean the origin of life and pictured with the male organs of procreation (Ezek. 16:17). Such symbols became the objects of worship carried on with all forms of impurity, perversion, and licentiousness by crowds of devotees involved in demonized and obscene orgies. The worship centered in the Canaanite nations and then spread into others. Relics of it are found among all heathen peoples. The first mention of the idol in the Bible stamps it as a special object of God’s hatred; and it was at this idol that God revealed His name as Jealous (Ex.34:13-14; 1 Ki. 14:15; 15:13; 16:32-33; 2 Chr. 36:14). It led to the destruction of all Canaanite nations and, with other things, caused Israel to be banished among other nations. The true nature of this form of idolatry is made clear in Jer. 5:7; 7:30-31; 19:4-5; 32:34-35; Hos. 4:12-14; Amos 2:7-9, and in other passages where grove and groves are found.
From all of this, we can begin to see what makes Yahweh angry and what the results might be when He gets angry. What is interesting here is the passage of Isaiah 66:15-17. Inasmuch as this is something that has already happened, it is interesting to notice the language used here. We have to understand that much of the Bible is written in allegory. This is particularly true of Isaiah 66:15-17. Using this passage as an example, it will help us to better understand other passages with similar language. You can see, if one takes these passages too literally, one can get into trouble. We can be sure that any or all unfulfilled Scriptures will be fulfilled in a very precise manner though.
Now we come to the part of the 32nd chapter in Deuteronomy which relates to Israel’s "later end." There isn’t much doubt that we are living in this period of time, so this should be interesting. We are going to be getting into some serious subjects here, but before we do, lets read from verse 27 through 35:
27 Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is high, and the Lord hath not done all this. 28 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them. O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end! 30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the Lord had shut them up? 31 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges. 32 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and their fields are of Gomorah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter: 33 Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps. 34 Is not it laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures? 35 To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste
Dake’s Annotated Reference Bible has the following to say about the phrase, "that I feared the wrath of the enemy." We know that the enemy is the serpent seed-line of the Jews. I don’t think that Dake knows that, but his comment is good anyway. We really have to be careful of what we use of Dake’s materials because he is really steeped in Darbyism ("the doctrine of the "secret rapture"). This reference is found on page 232, column 4, item l:
A strange statement! God fearing the wrath of an enemy! It could not mean that God fears either an enemy or his wrath. The idea is that God feared that if He did not punish Israel in such a supernatural way as to leave out all evidences of a human hand, His enemies would brag that it was by their own hand it was done, and not by God’s (v 27). Furthermore God wanted Israel to know that it was His hand which was punishing them for their sins, so they might repent and turn back to Him. The nations were to know that it was not their power or might that did it, even if at times they were used as the rod of chastening upon His people.
I don’t know how Dake did so well on this one as he thinks the Jews are "God’s chosen people", he thinks the Jews are Israelites! Nevertheless, the comment is very good. At this time I would like to quote a portion from Matthew Henry’s Commentary concerning verses 26 through 28, found in volume 1, page 868:
In jealousy for his own honour, he will not make a full end of them, v. 26-28. It cannot be denied but that they deserved to be utterly ruined, and that their remembrance should be made to cease from among men, so that the name of an Israelite should never be known but in history; for they were a nation void of counsel (v. 28), the most sottish inconsiderate people that ever were, that would not believe the glory of God, though they saw it, nor understand his loving kindness though they tasted it and lived upon it. Of those who could cast off such a God, such a law, such a covenant, for vain and dunghill-deities, it might truly be said, There is no understanding in them. It would have been an easy thing with God to ruin them and blot out the remembrance of them; when the greatest part of them were cut off by the sword, it was but scattering the remnant into some remote obscure corners of the earth, where they should never have been heard of anymore, and the thing had been done.
Then another comment by Matthew Henry on verse 28 where it says, "Our hand is high, and the Lord hath not done all this." Of course, we know that it is the Jews that think their "hand is high." It is the Jews that are Israel’s "adversaries."
The adversaries will say, Our hand is high, high indeed, when it has been too high for those whom God himself fought for; nor will they consider that the Lord has done all this, but will dream that they have done it in despite of him, as if the God of Israel were a weak and impotent, and as easily run down, as the pretended deities of other nations.
STOP, STOP, WE HAVE THE WRONG PEOPLE!
We should note especially who it is talking about when it says, "For their rock is not as our Rock", verses 31 and 32. At this point we should take notice that it is not speaking of Israel, it is speaking of the Jews (Israel’s enemies). And it says, "their vine (the Jews’ vine) is of the vine of Sodom, and their fields are of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter. Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asp." No doubt, it is speaking of how the Jews have always been in the drug business (legal and illegal). Also the Jews have always been sodomites and sex perverts. If you don’t think so, ask Dr. Ruth. Also, it speaks about their "cruel venom." This is, no doubt, their attempt to Judaize everything and everybody they touch, thus stagnating and putrefying everything they come in contact with. Yes, every time they open their mouths, their fangs are flowing with poison and "venom" with the intent of killing in some manner their subject. Yes, indeed, they are the scum of the earth.
At verse 31 this passage takes a strange twist and if we don’t catch it, we will think it is still talking about the Israelites. Up to this point it has been, but with verse 31, it starts to talk about Israel’s enemies. For further proof that it is speaking of the enemies of Israel (the Jspan style=em/spanspan style=emews) here, I will quote from The Interpreter’s Bible, volume 2, pages 523-524. For one of the very few times, The Interpreter’s Bible got something right:
The thought in vss. 31-33 would appear to shift to the enemies. As they themselves must acknowledge, their "rock" or gods cannot compare with the Rock of Israel and cannot, therefore, be held responsible for the defeat of Israel. The nature of the enemy (vss. 32-33) is like that of Sodom and Gomorrah (Gen. 19), the vine of which is not healthy but bitter and poisonous. (For the tradition about the worthless fruit of these cities see J. Penrose Harland, "Sodom and Gomorrah II. The Destruction of the Cities of the Plain." ... The bad fruit of the enemy agent of God is not forgotten; it is stored in God’s treasures.
If you don’t understand "two seed-line" you simply cannot understand passages of Scripture like this. In fact, if you don’t understand "two seed-line", your understanding of all Scripture is reduced to about 5% .It is interesting here that a comparison is made of the future destruction of the Jews to Sodom and Gomorrah. There is a passage, 2 Peter chapter 2, which has something to say about this. In this chapter it speaks of (1) the "angels that sinned", (2) the time of "Noah", (3) "Sodom and Gomorrah" and (4) "the way of Balaam." We should stop for a moment and ask the question: What do all four of these things have in common? In every case it is speaking of race-mixing. I am not going to quote this entire chapter here, but there is an interesting note in the Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, Abridged by Ralph Earle that I would like to point out on 2 Peter 2:15:
The way of Balaam is the counsel of Balaam. He counseled the Moabites to give their most beautiful young women to Israelitish youth, that they might be enticed by them to commit idolatry.
Adam Clarke comes close here, but it wasn’t "idolatry" entirely, at least in this case, that was the problem. The real problem was idolatry that led to race-mixing which is called adultery. I don’t know really just who was the "dumb ass", the donkey or Balaam. We sure have a lot of Balaam's today (in and out of the "Churches").
It appears that we should probably take another look at 2nd Peter, chapter 2 and see what it is talking about, and what all of the "damnable heresies" might be. This chapter is much like the Book of Jude, and Jude is about the Jews. It might be well, at this point, to take a little test and ask some questions on 2 Peter, chapter 2:
Who were and are still the "false prophets" and "teachers" among the "people?"
What were and still are the "damnable heresies?"
Who is it that has always "denied" Yahshua/Yahweh?
Who is it that have "pernicious ways" (harmful ways)?
Who is it that speaks "evil" of "truth?"
Who is it that is "covetous", that use "feigned words" (pretending words) to make "merchandise" out of you? In other words:
Who lets all of those false teachers (religionist) on television while anyone proclaiming the truth is
Who is it that promotes "filthy conversation?"
Who is it that does "unlawful deeds?"
Who is the "unjust" that are "reserved" to a "day of judgment" to be "punished?"
Who is it that "walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government?"
Who is it that are "presumptuous", "self-willed" and "not afraid to speak evil of dignities?"
Who is it speaking about when it speaks of "natural brute beast?"
Who is it that speak "evil of things that they understand not?"
Who is it that will "utterly perish in their own corruption?"
Who is it "that count it pleasure to riot in the day time?"
Who are the "spots" and "blemishes" (pimples full of pus) at our "feast?"
Who are they that have "eyes full of ADULTERY (RACE-MIXING), and cannot cease from sin?"
Who are these that are "beguiling unstable souls?"
Who promotes "the way of Balaam?"
Who is it that still "love" the "wages of unrighteousness?"
Who are like "wells without water?"
Who is it that speak "great swelling words of vanity?"
Who is it that through the movies and television "allure through the lust of the flesh" and "wantonness?"
For those that are continually guided and directed by the Jew’s program it is like as "the dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire." When you mess around with the Jews and their devises, don’t be surprised if you come out smelling like puke or defecation! Do you see all of the race-mixing in the movies and on television?
THE JEWS AND THEIR TEACHINGS
Now lets key in on the 33rd verse of Deuteronomy 32. It says, "Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asp." You might think it is talking about something to drink here, but it is not. What, then, is it saying? Well lets go to the Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, Abridged by Ralph Earle:
33 Their wine. Their system of doctrines and teaching, is the poison of dragons, fatal and destructive to all them who follow it.
I am not sure if Adam Clarke understands the Satanic seed-line of the Jews, but what he says here couldn’t be stated better! This is really an outstanding statement. I guess that now we can see through this bit of idiomatic language. Remember that Yahshua said, Matthew 16:6, Then said Jesus unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. Well they thought He was talking about a loaf of bread. We are still making that kind of mistake today. Anyway He answered them in verse 11 and said: How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees? Then it goes on to say in verse 12: Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. And, What do we have today? Same old problem, everybody almost is spouting the doctrine of the Jews. And just what is the main doctrine of the Jews??? Answer: RACE-MIXING!!! WHEN ARE PEOPLE GOING TO WAKE UP??? THERE ISN’T ANYTHING MORE POISONOUS THAN THIS!!!
It is very important, then, to understand whose "foot shall slide" in "due time." We have to see that it is the Jews (the enemy) that is spoken of here. When we understand this, we can go on to 1 Peter 2:7-8 to get some further insight on this situation:
7 Unto to you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, 8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
We have to understand that this "stone of stumbling" and "rock of offence" represents Yahshua the Messiah (Psalm 118:22). It appears here that the phrase, "their foot shall slide in due time", has something to do with the Jews and their fight against the Kingdom. They have always fought against Yahweh and His people but with the United Nations and the so-called "One World Order", that fight is fast coming to a zenith. It does not, at this present time, appear just when and how the Jews will lose their "footing", but Yahweh speed the day! You will notice that while it is a "stone of stumbling" for the Jews, it is a "chief corner stone" or stepping stone for Israel.
A DRASTIC CHANGE FOR THE BETTER
As we move from the 35th to the 36th verse of Deuteronomy 32, the subject of the Jews is discontinued and Israel’s future is being introduced. Lets now read Deuteronomy 32:36-43.
36 For the Lord shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left. 37 And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted, 38 Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection. 39 See now that, I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand. 40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say I live for ever. 41 If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me. 42 I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy. 43 Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.
Now we are getting to where we wanted to be in Isaiah 17:14 where it says, "This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us." Now lets take up the words "the Lord shall judge his people." Notice here that He is going to judge HIS people. This particular judgment is for HIS people, not the blacks, Mongolians, Jews or some other sub-race, but HIS people. Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, Abridged by Ralph Earle has this to say on pages 230-231:
36 The Lord shall judge his people. He has an absolute right over them as their Creator, and authority to punish them for their rebellions as their Sovereign; yet he will repent himself — He will change His manner of conduct toward them, when he seeth that their power is gone — when they are entirely subjugated by their adversaries, so that their political power is entirely destroyed; and there is none shut up, or left — not one strong place untaken, and not one family left, all being carried into captivity, or scattered into strange lands. Or, He will do justice to His people, and avenge them of their adversaries.
The comments are pretty good here, but it does appear that there is some confusion on the time period when this is supposed to happen. I contend that this is still future, but not very far in the future. You will notice here that it says, "he seeth that their power is gone." If you will notice, almost all of our power has been handed over to the United Nations by our traitorous government.
At this point a quote from Matthew Henry’s Commentary would be fitting taken from volume 1, page 870:
He often delays the punishment of sin for a great while; it is laid up in store, till the measure be full, and the day of divine patience has expired. See Job. xxi. 28-30. There is a day of reckoning coming, when all the treasures of guilt and wrath will be broken up, and the sin of sinners shall surely find them out. [1.] The thing itself will certainly be done, for the Lord is a God to whom vengeance belongs, and therefore he will repay, Isa. lix. 18. This is quoted by the apostle to show the severity of God’s wrath against those that revolt from the faith of Christ, Heb. x. 30. [2.] It will be done in due time, in the best time; nay, it will be done in a short time. The day of their calamity is at hand; and, though it may seem to tarry, it lingers not, it slumbers not, but makes haste. In one hour shall the judgment of Babylon come. 2 He will do it in compassion to his own people, who though they had greatly provoked him, yet stood in relation to him, and their misery appealed to his mercy (v. 36): The Lord shall judge his people, that is, judge for them against their enemies, plead their cause, and break the yoke of oppression under which they had long groaned, repenting himself for his servants; not changing his mind, but changing his way, and fighting for them, as he had fought against them, when he sees that their power is gone. This plainly points at the deliverances God wrought for Israel by the judges out of the hands of those to whom he had sold them for their sins (see Judg. ii. 11-18), and how his soul was grieved for the misery of Israel (Judg. x. 16), and this when they were reduced to the last extremity. God helped them when they could not help themselves; for there was none shut up or left ... Note: God’s time to appear for the deliverance of his people is when things are at the worst with them. God tries his people’s faith, and stirs up prayer, by letting things go to the worst, and then magnifies his own power, and fills the faces of his enemies with shame and the hearts of his people with so much the greater joy, by rescuing them out of extremity as brands out of the burning.
In order to contemplate what it might be that will cause the Jew’s "foot" to "slide in due time", let's do a little long-range review of the history of this thing. By the way, Won’t that be a great situation when the Jews finally botch things up and their hold on the world begins to crumble? Anyway, lets take a few moments and take a look back in order to see how we got from there to here. It started in Genesis 15:13-16 that Yahweh would not send Abraham’s descendants among the Satanic seed-line for a period of four generations (400 years). The object here was to let the Satanic seed-line of Kenites mix among the, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, Hittites, Perrizzites, Rephaims, Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites until "the iniquity of the Amorites" be "full." It is interesting here to notice that Yahweh had His enemies list before Abraham even had one descendant. After 400 years, the descendants (Israel) was to kill every damn (and I do mean damn) man, woman and child among them, and Yahweh has never rescinded or canceled that command. He has just put it on hold for a while. Lets take a look at Numbers 33:55:
55 But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and vex you in the land wherein ye dwell.
Good term to use for a Jew, "prick." Of course, you know, this is horticultural language again. Exodus 23:33 says:
33 They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee.
Deuteronomy 7:3-4, 16
3 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. 4 For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly. ... 16 And thou shalt consume all the people which the Lord thy God shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity upon them: neither shall thou serve their gods; for that will be a snare unto thee.
12 Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you: 13 Know for a certainty that the Lord your God will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which the Lord your God hath given you.
3 Wherefore I also said, I will not drive them out from before you; but they shall be as thorns in your sides, and their gods shall be a snare unto you.
34 They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the Lord commanded them: 35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works. 36 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them. (And then they set up the abortion clinics.)
Then a future prophecy, Ezekiel 28:24
24 And there shall be no more a pricking brier unto the house of Israel, nor any grieving thorn of all that are round about them, that despised them; and they shall know that I am the Lord God.
We can see here that Israel had the job of ridding the entire world of the Satanic seed-line (Canaanite Jews) and they didn’t do it completely, and because they didn’t the Satanic seed-line now has a financial, political and religious strangle hold on the entire earth. You say, "My God, this guy is advocating destroying all of those innocent women and children let alone the men!" No I am not, Yahweh is! I would not tell anyone to start doing this, it’s Yahweh’s to command! This is a sad state of affairs, but this isn’t the end yet. Thank Yahweh that the last chapter of this book hasn’t been written yet. We are now living in a day when we may see that last chapter written. For true Israel it is going to be a difficult time, but the Jews are going to have hell to pay. It sometimes gets discouraging when, at every turn, the Jew seems to have the upper hand, but all of that is going to change. It would appear that we are in for a hell of a ride, so grab on to something substantial till we get through the transition.
WHERE ARE THEIR GODS?
The next question is directed to Israel from Yahweh, "Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted?" Well if they are so great, "let them rise up and help you", let them "be your protection" — let them go to their organized "church", maybe they can help. Maybe they can consult Billy Graham, he has all the answers. Maybe they can consult the great Granville Oral Roberts, maybe he will go into his prayer tower to make intercession and don’t forget the offering (Maybe next time "God" will "kill" him). Maybe Kenneth Hagin could help? All you have to do is lay your hands on the television they say. Just ask Kenneth Copeland, he’ll know what to do. And don’t forget the great authority on prophecy, Jack (the kike) Van Impe. Or contact Benny Hinn, maybe he can "slay" you in the "spirit." Then there is good old Bob Jones and his crew. Which Bob Jones?, try either one, it probably won’t make any difference, but the Bob Jones from Kansas City "speaks" with "God" "annually on the Jewish Day of Atonement." Maybe he needs to be contacted, it appears he has a lot of pull with "God." If political clout is needed, call Pat Robertson, he will tell you who "God’s chosen people" are. Well if all of these "gods" can’t help, Who can? Well, maybe you could contact "Jews for Jesus."
Judges 10:13-14 says:
13 Yet ye have forsaken me, and served other gods: wherefore I will deliver you no more. 14 Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.
28 But where are thy gods that thou hast made thee? let them arise, if they can save thee in the time of thy trouble: for according to the number of thy cities are thy gods, O Judah.
We have already gone into quite a detailed study of the religions that Israel became involved with so we will not repeat all of that here. We also elaborated on the word "rock" found in the 31st and 37th verses so we will skip that too. So we will skip over the 37th and 38th verses of Deuteronomy chapter 32 and that brings us to verse 39:
39 See now that I, even I am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal; neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.
The Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, Abridged by Ralph Earle has at least a fair comment on this verse. The Matthew Henry’s Commentary and the Interpreter’s Bible comments on this verse isn’t even worth mentioning. Adam Clarke says this:
39 See now that I … am he. Be convinced that God alone can save, and God alone can destroy, and that your idols can neither hurt nor help you. I kill, and I make alive. My mercy is as great as my justice, for I am as ready to save the penitent as I was to punish the rebellious.
Not only is this 39th verse interesting, but it is important. We will have to take some time here to explore just what it means. This verse has a very strong association with Hosea 6:1-2 and if we will take a moment to study what Hosea has to say, we will better understand Deuteronomy 32:39. Lets now read this passage:
1 Come, and let us return unto the Lord: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. 2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
Now we will have to investigate this passage to see what it is all about. I checked with the usual sources and couldn’t find anything but garbage. To give you an idea of just what kind of garbage you can find in some of these commentaries, let’s take a look at what Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, Abridged by Ralspan style=span style=span style=span style=color: #0000ff;ph Earle has to say on verse 2 here:
2. After two days will he revive. Such is His power that in two or three days He can restore us. He can realize all our hopes, and give us the strongest token for good. In the third day he will raise us up. In so short a time can He give us complete deliverance. These words are supposed to refer to the death and resurrection of our Lord; and it is thought that the apostle refers to them, 1 Cor. xv. 4: Christ "rose again this third day according to the scriptures"; and this is the only place in the Scriptures. i.e., of the Old Testament, where His resurrection on the third day seems to be hinted at.
Garbage! Garbage! Garbage! This passage has nothing to do with the resurrection of Yahshua as explained here! With this kind of refuse being spewed forth from the so-called experts, no wonder the "Christian" world is in a mess of confusion. For a better insight into the meaning of this passage, I will now quote from a portion of William Lester Blessing’s book, "VOTSA", page 5 While Blessing makes a good attempt at this verse, he doesn’t quite get it right:
Come and let us return unto Yahveh: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. "AFTER TWO DAYS WILL HE REVIVE US: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. Then shall we know, if we follow on to know Yahveh: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth. (Hosea 6:1-3). "One day is with Yahveh as a thousand years." (II Peter 3:8). Therefore with the 20th century the two days (2000 years) of the reign of the Gentiles in Government and Babylon the Great in religion comes to an end.
"YAHVEH SHALL SET HIS HAND AGAIN THE SECOND TIME TO RECOVER THE REMNANT OF HIS PEOPLE." (Isa. 11:11). "Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the earth with fruit," (Isa. 27:6) "shall again take root downward, and bare fruit upward." (Isa. 37:31), and become as innumerable as the stars in the heavens and as the sand on the seashore and will inherit and possess the entire earth and bring blessings to all people. (Gen. 12:14-17, Gen. 15:5-6, Psalm 2:8).
We are in the very last hour. A thousand years is one day. By dividing one thousand by twenty-four, we find that a Bible hour is approximately forty-one years and eight months. Since 2000 years will end (Hosea 6:3) in the year 2000 A.D. we have less than an hour to wait until the coming righteous world, the Kingdom of Yahveh, will be established. To be exact, the last hour of 41 years, 8 months, began on May 1, 1959 and will end Jan. 1, 2001 A.D.
Well this really puts a different viewpoint on this passage than what Adam Clarke had to say. Clarke was taking the days literally and that is a typical mistake of a lot of the "religionist." When you consider that these "days" spoken of here represents a thousand years each, it puts a very different view on this passage. While Blessing does a very good job on this one, I am not sure if I agree with him totally or not. As a matter of fact, I don’t agree with Blessing. Lets consider another view for a moment. Lets say that Blessing is correct on the 1000 year per day premise. Next, lets start counting time at 720 B.C. You will notice that Blessing is making his calculations from the birth of Yahshua. The reason that I prefer to use the 720 B.C. date is because that is when Israel was "torn", that is the date Assyria came against Israel as Yahweh’s instrument of correction. Lets read Hosea 5:14-15 to show this:
14 For I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah: I even I will tear and go away; I will take away, and none shall rescue him. 15 I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.
Of course, here, it is speaking of when Assyria came against Israel and when Nebuchadnezzar came against Judah. Now for a little calculation: From 720 B.C. to 280 A.D. was the first day. From 280 A.D. to 1280 A.D. would be the second day. We are now 718 years into the "third" day here in the year 1998. There is a bright side to all of this: Just as sure as we at one time were "torn", we will ultimately be "healed." You will note that it does not indicate just when in the "third day" this "healing" is to take place, but you can count on it to happen. What really happened at the approximate date of 1280 A.D. was the faint beginnings of the Reformation. In 1303, King Phillip IV of France humiliated Pope Boniface VIII by having him arrested, and during the 1300’s and 1400’s the church suffered several serious setbacks. This was the beginning of the healing "after two days.". Can you see now why Adam Clarke’s comments on this passage is garbage? I could quote a lot more garbage here, but I am sure that this is quite enough. Now that we have established the important meaning of Deuteronomy 32:39, lets move on to verse 40:
40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.
In verse 40, we are getting into a very serious situation. It is the matter of taking an oath. Oaths are not to be taken lightly. When we make any kind of oath, we are to swear in the name of Yahweh only, we are to make no other kind of oath. So in this 40th verse Yahweh is preparing to make a oath and He does it as He instructs us to do it, He swears in His Own Name. Probably we could avoid a lot of trouble in our lives if we would get back to making oaths properly. So by Yahweh lifting up His hand and swearing "I am that I am", you can be sure He is going to live up to His oath. Matthew Henry’s Commentary does a pretty good job describing this oath, so I will quote from him here, volume 1, page 871:
The divine sentence is ratified with an oath (v. 40): He lifts up his hand to heaven, the habitation of his holiness; this was an ancient and very significant sign used in swearing, Gen. xiv. 22. And because he could swear by no greater, he swears by himself and his own life. Those are miserable without remedy that have the word and oath of God against them. ... Preparation is made for the execution: The glittering sword is whet. See Ps. vii. 12. It is a sword bathed in heaven, Isa. xxxiv. 5. ... The execution itself will be very terrible: The sword shall devour flesh in abundance, and the arrows be made drunk with blood, such vast quantities of it shall be shed, the blood of the slain in battle, and of the captives to whom no quarter shall be given, but who shall be put under military execution. When he begins revenge he will make an end; for in this also his work is perfect.
Yahweh is getting ready to make an oath concerning the enemy (the Jews), so I think we ought to take special notice of it. Now like so many times, the King James Version makes a botch of this portion of Scripture, so we will have to compare it with some other Bibles. Actually the verse in question will be verse 42, but because verses 41 and 42 are speaking about the same thing, lets read them as they appear in the King James:
41 If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me. 42 I will make mine arrows drunk with blood and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginnings of revenges upon the enemy.
The problem part of verse 42 is, "from the beginnings of revenges upon the enemy. For comparison, lets take a look at some other renderings:
New American Standard
I will make My arrows drunk with blood, And My sword shall devour flesh, With the blood of the slain, From the long-haired leaders of the enemy
New International Version
I will make my arrows drunk with blood, while my sword devours flesh: the blood of the slain and the captives, the heads of the enemy leaders.
The James Moffatt Translation
I drench my arrows in their blood, my blade devours their bodies- blood of the slain and prisoners, of braves with flowing locks.
The New Century Version
My arrows will be covered with their blood; my sword will eat their flesh. The blood will flow from those who are killed and the captives. The heads of the enemy leaders will be cut off.
The Emphasized Bible
I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, And ¦my sword¦ shall devour flesh,— With the blood of the slain and the captive, With [the flesh of] the chief leader of the foe.
The Holy Scriptures According To The Masoretic Text (Jewish Bible)
I will make Mine arrows drunk with blood, And My sword shall devour flesh; With the blood of the slain and the captives, From the long-haired heads of the enemy.
You can see here that we have several variations of this verse. The best explanation that I have found is in the Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, Abridged by Ralph Earle. Once in a while these commentaries do come up with some outstanding observations. This one seems to be well thought out and is probably true. Evidently, somewhere along the line, something got lost in the translation.
42 From the beginning of revenges. The word paroth, rendered revenges, a sense in which it never appears to be taken, has rendered this place very perplexed and obscure. Probably merosh paroth may be properly translated "from the naked head"— The enemy shall have nothing to shield him from My vengeance; the crown of dignity shall fall off, and even the helmet be no protection against the sword and arrows of the Lord.
It’s hard to put this one together, but the main point is: The enemy (the Jews) are going to lose their overlord position and be brought down to their proper distinction (dead). I would like to quote from another book, "The New Treasury Of Scripture Knowledge," Edited by Jerome H. Smith, concerning Deuteronomy 32:42:
The word paroth, rendered revenges, a sense in which it never seems to be used, has rendered this passage very obscure. As the word paira signifies the "hair of the head," both in Hebrew and Arabic, Mr. Parkhurst and others render mairosh paroth, "from the hairy head;" but to have this sense, the word should rather have been mipparoth rosh, according to the Hebrew idiom. The word faron, in Arabic, however, denotes a prince or chief; and the words may be literally rendered with the LXX, "from the head of the chiefs of the enemies."
At this point, it might be well to ask: What are Yahweh’s arrows? The Dake’s Annotated Reference Bible has the following comments on page 196:
Arrows of God (Dt. 32:23), Judgments of God are sometimes called arrows ... 8 arrows of God: 1 Burning with hunger - loss of crops, and famine. 2 Burning heat - no rain from heaven, and burning fevers, boils, blains, and other kinds of pestilence. 3 Bitter destruction - consuming plagues of various kinds (Lev. 36; Dt. 28). 4 Wild beast - they shall multiply abundantly and destroy you (Dt. 7:22; 28:26; Lev. 26:6, 22) [Does it mean wild beast or blacks and Mongolians?]. 5 Serpents - poisonous serpent bites will destroy you. Cp. Num. 21:1-9 [Does it mean serpents or Jews?]. 6 The sword - wars. 7 Terror within - civil wars and strife. 8 Dispersion - captivities. ... Page 635 Israel suffered 34 recorded defeats and 13 civil wars when they sinned; and enjoyed 78 victories and deliverances from enemies when the obeyed.
From all of this we can begin to see what might be the final judgment upon the head of the "enemy". We should take note here that these "arrows" above were to be used against true Israel as a means of "correction." We, as Israel, have been "corrected by Yahweh’s "arrows" now for 2700 years. The interesting thing to note here is that these "arrows" will no longer be directed at Israel but toward the enemy, the Jews. You have to contrast verses 23 and 42 of Deuteronomy chapter 32 for the "arrows" are meant for different peoples. Yes, Israel’s correction period of punishment is coming to an end, and it is going to be the Jews turn except their punishment is going to be death. It is stated in Malachi 4:1 that the Jews shall be totally exterminated or annihilated, whichever word you want to use. This verse says:
For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, Abridged by Ralph Earle, makes the comment that this is "the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans." I believe he has the right people but the wrong time. There is a simple test that can be applied here: Did the Romans "leave them neither root nor branch? Now while the Romans did a pretty good job on the Jews, they didn’t destroy all of them or they wouldn’t be around today. So, you can see, this future day of the final destruction of the Jews is still yet to happen — Yahweh speed the day! Because Clarke makes this error, his comments on the rest of the chapter are erroneous. The "Commentary On The Whole Bible, by Jamieson, Fausset & Brown, has an interesting comment on this verse which says:
1. the day cometh…burn-(ch. 3:2; II Peter 3:7). Primarily is meant the judgment coming on Jerusalem; but as this will not exhaust the meaning, without supporting what is inadmissible in Scripture-exaggeration-the final and full accomplishment, of which the former was the earnest, is the day of general judgment. This principle of interpretation is not double but successive fulfilment.
What this verse is saying is that the siege of Jerusalem by Rome in 70 A.D. was just the down payment on the final destruction of the Jews — just an "earnest" if you will. If this is true, it can give us a pretty good idea of what this final destruction of the Jews is going to be like. Further, this may clear up the confusion over the 24th chapter of Matthew, for it may have a duel meaning: (1)The Roman siege by Titus in 70 A.D. and (2)The final destruction of the Satanic seed-line by the hand of Yahshua Himself. These are not my words about the destruction of the Jews, these are Yahweh’s words. It appears that the Jews are naming their own destruction when they cry about the so-called "Holocaust." They seem to want a "Holocaust" and they are going to get one! There will be no "survivors" to this "Holocaust." To "leave them neither root nor branch" means no descendants, it will be the end of the serpent seed-line! Psalm 68:21-23 seems to allude to Deuteronomy 32:42 and reads thusly:
21 But God will wound the head of his enemies, and the hairy scalp of such an one as goeth on still in his trespasses. 22 The Lord said, I will bring again from Bashan, I will bring my people again from the depths of the sea: 23 That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thine enemies, and the tongue of thy dogs in the same. (And if you don’t think it is speaking of Israel and the enemy Jews, read the rest of the chapter.)
Also Isaiah 34:6-8 speaks of a "great slaughter in the land of Idumea" which has reference to the Jews. Ezekiel 35:6-8 speaks of a judgment against mount Seir which also concerns the Jews. Being that the Jews are part of Gog and Magog, Ezekiel 38:21-22 makes reference to "a sword against him."
Now after this total annihilation of the Satanic seed-line in Deuteronomy 32:42, we come to a time of "rejoicing." This brings us verse 43 and an end to the song of Moses:
43 Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.
Is this saying that all the "nations" are to "rejoice?" The answer is, NO! It is only the "servant" nations that are to rejoice — not the blacks or Mongolians. When it says nations here, it means nations of Israel. Rejoicing here, is directed to "his land, and to his people." It is the "nations" of Romans 4:16-17 which says:
16 Therefore it is of faith, that it may be by grace; to the end of the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, 17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
I would like to remind you that Abraham is not the father of the blacks, nor is he the father of the Mongolians. Nor does the "many nations" include the descendants of Hagar by Abraham for they are not of the "promise." (Note: Verses 9 through 12 of Romans 4 was probably added by some pagan scribe about 200 A.D. — just skip from verse 8 to verse 13, it will make more sense.)
All of this brings us back to the 17th chapter of Isaiah from where we started. Isaiah 17:14 is related to Deuteronomy 32:42. Lets repeat it here:
14 And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.
Also lets take another look at Isaiah 17:10 which is the theme of this article:
10 Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength, therefore shalt thou plant pleasant plants, and shall set it with strange slips.
The IBM SoftCopy Navigator Bible Reference Library of the Literal Translation on my computer has an interesting way of stating verse 10:
10 Because you have forgotten the God of your salvation. And the Rock of your strength - not you did remember. There-fore, you will plant plants of pleasantness, and a shoot of foreignness you will sow it.
It is interesting because it is a direct result of forgetting Yahweh and his segregation laws that you can see all of this race-mixing that is going on today. If we would have remembered Yahweh and His Laws, we wouldn’t be doing all of this miscegenation. Actually the enemy has been able to make us believe that we are doing "God" a favor by promoting all of this multiculturalism. The truth is: As long as we separate ourselves from the other races, we will have peace and prosperity. When we integrate among the other races, they will drag us down to their level physically, mentally and spiritually, which isn’t very high. Actually there is no such thing as multiculturalism as we are different. Because of this, other races hate us, and the more we give them, the more they hate us. Because of this, there will never be peace between the races. Therefore, there is no such thing as coexistence. Thus, if there is no coexistence, one or the other will have to be destroyed! If you will remember, Yahshua didn’t give us any solutions. You can see, we have a serious problem. The Bible instructs us in Leviticus 20: 24&26 what we are to do and why:
I am the Lord your God, which have separated you from other people ... And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the Lord am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.
Tell me where it says anything about the blacks, Mongolians, Jews or whatever being "separated" to be "mine. The only thing I know a black can do is to have more blacks. It is interesting to note how the above Scripture contrasts with a poem engraved on a tablet and placed at the pedestal of the Statue Of Liberty. This poem was written by one "Emma Lazarus." It says in part:
"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breath free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Before we make any comment here, let us take a look at just who this Emma Lazarus was according to The World Book Encyclopedia:
LAZARUS, EMMA (1849-1887), an American poet and essayist, wrote the sonnet inscribed on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. A full text of the sonnet appears in the article Liberty, Statue of. Miss Lazarus, the daughter of wealthy parents, was born in New York City. She worked as a philanthropist, and organized relief for persecuted Jews immigrating to the United States from Russia.
It doesn’t take long here to figure out that the above "sonnet" was written for the Jews and not a White person. One can only wonder if this Emma Lazarus is connected in any way to the Lazarus family that owns stock in the Federal Reserve. It appears that we have some serpent seed here.
While we are on the subject of "separation", I would like to point out a false teaching that is promoted among some denominations of "Churches" which they call "sanctification." While the doctrine of "sanctification" should not to be held in contempt, it should likewise be applied in a correct manner. It is taught that if somehow one can attain a 100% degree of perfection, one becomes "sanctified." At the time this supposed perfection is reached, it is determined that the "Holy Spirit" enters into the adherent and he/she becomes "holy." The adherents then uses the term "entire sanctification" to describe this achievement. This "entire sanctification" is then called "a second work of grace." They go on to declare that it is necessary to get rid of the "carnal nature" or "the old man" or the "Adamic nature" as they call it. I don’t know about you, but I am happy to be like Adam — he was White. Does the term "entire sanctification" imply that anything less would be partial "sanctification?" What these so-called "holiness Churches" fail to understand is that "holiness" in the Bible has to do with purity of race! Hell, you don’t want to get rid of the "Adamic nature", you want to be 100% Adamic as Yahshua was. When the Bible speaks about "sanctification", it is speaking about purity of race! Your father and mother had more to do about your "sanctification" that anyone else, and you owe it to your children to pass it on to them. When it says "sanctify yourself", it means separate yourself from the other races! When Yahweh says, "be ye Holy, for I am Holy", it means keep your race pure as He is racially pure. There are other implications to "sanctification" such as whether you eat the "clean" or "unclean". I remember a woman that got up in one of these "holiness Churches" and gave her testimony. She said, with a tone of sarcasm in her voice, "I once knew a person who was 99% holy and almost made it to heaven." Now if you apply what this woman said properly, she was correct. It might be said something like this: "I once know a person who was 99% White and almost made it into the Kingdom.
At this point, I am going to shut down this study. I hope it is better understood now the use of horticultural language in the Scriptures. I really wanted to extend this study farther, but my research led me into another important subject, so I will save that for another article.
