Watchman's Teaching Letter #156 April 2011

This is my one hundred and fifty-sixth monthly teaching letter and ends my thirteenth year of publication. I started this series entitled The Greatest Love Story Ever Told in WTL #137 with a general overview, followed by a more detailed seven stages of the story as follows: (1) the courtship, (2) the marriage, (3) the honeymoon, (4) the estrangement, (5) the divorce, (6) the reconciliation, and (7) the remarriage. As I have stated before, this marriage appertained only to the descendants Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (although it included the wives that their descendants would take of the pure Adamic race). But it didn’t, and still doesn’t, include any husband that a White Israelite lady might take who was not under Yahweh’s covenant to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

However, the wife (the twelve tribes of Israel) would prove to be unfaithful, and Yahweh had no other choice but to divorce her, nevertheless Yahweh provided a way back (that being His death as Yahshua on the cross). The divorce (i.e., put away in punishment) would last for a period of 2520 years for both Israel and Judah.


THE MARRIAGE” continued:



It is very sad, but today there are many in Israel Identity who claim that the ten northern tribes of Israel were divorced, but the two southern tribes of Judah were not divorced. This is absolutely not supported by Scripture, as Jer. 33:24 states:

24 Considerest thou not what this people have spoken, saying, The two families which Yahweh hath chosen, he hath even cast them off? thus they have despised [all of] my people, that they should be no more a nation before them. 25 Thus saith Yahweh; If my [marriage] covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth; 26 Then will I cast away [all] the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them.”

Before making the assertion that Israel was divorced and Judah wasn’t, one should consider what the prophet said at Jer. 3:6-11:

6 Yahweh said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the harlot. 7 And I said after she had done all these things, Turn thou unto me. But she returned not. And her treacherous sister Judah saw it. 8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also. 9 And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks. 10 And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith Yahweh. 11 And Yahweh said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah.”

To erroneously claim that Yahweh did not divorce Judah upon being more “treacherous” than the house of Israel is tantamount to accusing Yahweh of being injustice in His decree toward the house of Israel. For if Yahweh was going to be prejudiced toward Judah, while condemning the house of Israel for a lesser offense we would condemn Him as an unjust Elohim!

Eze. 36:16-17 states: 16 Moreover the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying, 17 Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land, they defiled it by their own way and by their doings: their way was before me as the uncleanness of a removed woman.” Question: For what other reason is a woman given a divorce? Under the circumstance of Judah being more “treacherous” than the house of Israel, can anyone ever claim that Judah was not divorced? Some will make the absurd argument that “put away” and “divorce” are two different words, concluding mistakenly that Judah was not divorced! To get the proper Biblical context of “put away” and “divorced”, I will quote Isa. 50:1:

Thus saith Yahweh, Where is the bill of your mother’s divorcement, whom I have put away? or which of my creditors is it to whom I have sold you? Behold, for your iniquities have ye sold yourselves, and for your transgressions is your mother put away.” Here, “divorcement” and “put away” are in the same context, and so is “cast them off” at Jer. 33:24! Furthermore, in the New Testament at Matt. 5:31-32, “divorcement” and “put away” are in the same context where it states:

31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: 32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.” This is tantamount to accusing Yahweh of keeping an adulterous woman (even one who had committed the sin of race-mixing, which some of Judah did)! If, as some foolishly claim, Yahweh never divorced Judah, He is still married to Judah today (including those Judahites who had race-mixed with the Edomites and other Canaanite tribes, [i.e., Canaanite-jews]). An even greater error is this; if Yahweh didn’t divorce Judah in the Old Testament, He as Yahshua, didn’t die on the cross to redeem Judah back to Himself! If such is the case (and it isn’t), those of German, Irish and Scottish descent have no hope of being in the Kingdom! This would include the “wild olives” of Romans 11:17 (or the Romans, to whom Paul wrote his epistle, who were of Zerah-Judah)! That would also exclude Rahab the innkeeper, of “scarlet thread” fame at Joshua 2:18, also of Zerah-Judah!

Maybe we better start looking before we leap to a conclusion; (the entire context of the Bible, that is)! Above all, if Yahweh didn’t divorce the two tribes of Judah, He as Yahshua cannot remarry them back again, and that would include Benjamin (from whom all the disciples of Christ, except Judas, were chosen, including Paul)! In order to comprehend what Yahweh’s divorce of Israel and Judah were all about one should consult the entire chapter of Leviticus 26, and take special notice of Lev. 26:44-46 which reads:

44 And yet for all that, when they be in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my [marriage] covenant with them: for I am Yahweh their God. 45 But I will for their sakes remember the [marriage] covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen, that I might be their God: I am Yahweh. 46 These are the [marriage] statutes and judgments and laws, which Yahweh made between him and the children of Israel in mount Sinai by the hand of Moses.” Therefore, the only people to whom the law applies are the twelve tribes of Israel, and we were never commissioned to take our laws to any other people, regardless of what alias “Eli James” (whose real name is Joseph November), insists upon to the contrary!

As we enter the period of Yahweh’s honeymoon with the twelve tribes of Israel, we have to review what brought us to this juncture in our story. The honeymoon begins at the climax of a period where Yahweh had proven His favoritism for the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob time and time again. David in Psalm 105 recapitulates these events throughout this chapter, and ends by stating the following at verses 42-45.

Psalm 105:42-45 reads: 42 For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham his servant. 43 And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness: 44 And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of the people; 45 That they might observe his [prenuptial] statutes, and keep his [prenuptial] laws. Praise ye Yahweh.”

It should point out here that Yahweh married no other people, and no other people are responsible for keeping Yahweh’s laws, no matter how much alias “Eli James” (aka, Joseph November) insists otherwise! Alias “Eli” stated in an E-mail January 31, 2011: “The valid missionary activity is teaching the laws of God and bringing the other peoples into subjection.” When alias “Eli” wrote this, he meant nonwhites! This is universalism; not Israelite exclusivism (i.e., excluding all others). Yahweh is the God of “exclusivism”, whereas Satan is the god of “universalism”! To say it another way, “Yahweh is the God of segregation, while Satan is the god of integration!” In other words, “exclusivism” = “segregation”, while “universalism” = “integration”!

The false Kenite-Canaanite-Edomite-jews are goats and the true Israelites are His sheep. The door has been slammed shut to the “goats”, and opened wide to His true Israel sheep. No other but the sheep need apply, as it is a closed corporation. Messiah told the “goats”, John 10:26-27:

26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”

At Matthew 15:24, our Savior specified the purpose of His exclusive Mission: “But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

At Amos 3:2, Yahweh proclaimed to Israel: “You [Israel] only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.”

Further, we are told in Deuteronomy 7:6: “For thou art an holy (set apart) people into Yahweh thy Elohim: Yahweh thy Elohim hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.”

After the Almighty divorced Israel, putting her away and punishing her, in the New Testament at 1 Peter 2:9 we read: “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, that you may declare the wonderful deeds of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were no people but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy but now you have received mercy”, RSV.

The same concept is expressed in 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 (the non-Israelites) have not known them.”

Again, the same thought is advanced in Deuteronomy 14:2 which says: “For thou art a people set apart unto Yahweh thy Mighty One, and Yahweh hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the (other) nations [sic 5971 ethnicities] that are upon the earth.”

For another rendering of the same basic precept, Isaiah 41:8 says the following: “But thou Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.” Contrary to what some advance, Yahweh does not promote the doctrine of universalism! Question: Where does this leave any room for people other than Israel in the marriage relationship with Yahweh?

After all, we should not be surprised at Yahweh’s exclusiveness toward the twelve tribes of Israel, as He promised them at Exo. 19:5:

5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my [marriage] covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation ....” This flies in the face of alias “Eli James” where he said: “The valid missionary activity is teaching the laws of God and bringing the other peoples into subjection.” This goes contrary to Yahweh’s words at Deut. 10:15 where it reads: “Only Yahweh had a delight in thy fathers to love them, and he chose their seed after them, even you above all people, as it is this day.”

This is even more clear at Deut. 32:8-9 where it reads: 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 Yahweh’s portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.”

This is reinforced again at Psalm 147:19-20 where it states: 19 He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel. 20 He hath not dealt so with any [other] nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye Yahweh.”

We find similar words at Isa. 63:19: “We [Israel] are thine: thou never barest rule over them [i.e., Canaanite aliens]; they were not called by thy name.” This is a difficult passage, and it is imperative to establish just who the “we” and the “them” are! Once the “we” and the “them” are confirmed, it rules out Cain’s, Esau’s and all pre-Adamite progeny from ever being a part of Yahweh’s kingdom, even though Jacob and Esau were brothers!

Deut. 28:9-10: 9 Yahweh shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of Yahweh thy God, and walk in his ways. 10 And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of Yahweh; and they shall be afraid of thee.”

Yahweh’s exclusive preference for the seed of Jacob, excluding all others, is shown at Exo. 33:19:

And he [Yahweh] said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of Yahweh before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.”

The 6-volume Jamieson, Fausset & Brown, A Commentary states: “... and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious. &c. This is added to show that such an extraordinary discovery as was about to be made to Moses was not due to his merit, but was an act of free grace (cf. Romans ix. 15).”

Paul writes at Romans 9:14-16: 14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. 15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. 16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.” In other words, we have no choice in the matter of whom Yahweh selects to be His chosen people, for one is either a “son” or a “bastard”, Hebrews 12:8! There is no category in-between!

We read at Psalm 50:3-6, where the prophet David stated:

3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him. 4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people. 5 Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a [marriage] covenant with me by sacrifice. 6 And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself ....”

The same thought is expressed at Psalm 135:4 where David stated: “For Yahweh hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.”

The same thought along this topic is expressed at Jer. 2:3-5:

3 Israel was holiness unto Yahweh, and the firstfruits of his increase: all that devour him shall offend; evil shall come upon them, saith Yahweh. 4 Hear ye the word of Yahweh, O house of Jacob, and all the families of the house of Israel: 5 Thus saith Yahweh, What iniquity have your fathers found in me, that they are gone far from me, and have walked after vanity, and are become vain?” Upon Yahweh’s marriage to the twelve tribes of Israel, she became Yahweh’s consecrated property or “firstfruits, just as a wife becomes the husband’s consecrated property today, with all of the responsibility that goes with the marriage-covenant. If the husband is any kind of a man at all, he’ll defend his wife and children with his very life, if necessary! In turn for that protection, the wife (the weaker vessel) will respect and obey her husband, while the husband reciprocates in an honest and respectful manner by keeping a roof over his family’s head, and seeing to it that his family is well clothed while providing adequate food for the table.

This becomes evident at Titus 2:14 where the marriage of Yahweh in the flesh (i.e., Yahshua’s) remarriage to the twelve tribes of Israel is alluded to in the New Testament: “Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.” Thus, through Christ’s sacrifice by crucifixion, the twelve tribes regained the status of being virgins (a feat impossible for an individual woman)! Most in churchianity today are under the delusion that somehow this is a status a person can choose for himself by accepting Jesus Christ as his Savior. Had one read Psalm 33:12, one would not make such an error, for it is Yahweh in the flesh (as Yahshua) who has chosen we Israelites, stating:

Blessed is the nation whose God is Yahweh; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.” In other words, the twelve tribes of Israel didn’t propose to Yahweh, asking Him to become their Husband, but it was Yahweh who proposed to the twelve tribes of Israel by seeking their hand in marriage. In fact, it was when Abraham placed Isaac on the altar that Yahweh’s marriage to the twelve tribes of Israel was foreordained, with the descendants of Esau being foreordained for a different reason – since they are vessels of destruction as Paul explains in Romans 9!

Because there are men in the clergy who in their proud and insolent manner, want nothing more than to dominate and lord over the humble, they will dare anyone who might resist them! However, Malachi 3:16-18 prophesied that Yahweh would “spare” His chosen in their humility while “discerning between the righteous and the wicked”, between those who served their Husband, and those who followed Satan’s agenda!

Mal. 3:16-18: 16 Then they that feared Yahweh spake often one to another: and Yahweh hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared Yahweh, and that thought upon his name. 17 And they shall be mine, saith Yahweh of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. 18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.” From this it is quite obvious that we will not be fully aware of just who served Yahweh and who didn’t until we reach the day of Judgment. Furthermore, we are told here in verse 16 that what we are teaching is being “written” in “a book of remembrance”, to the effect in verse 18 to “discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.” Therefore, it behooves each one of us to rightly expound Yahweh’s Word to the best of our ability, which is the goal of this ministry!

In light of all of this, I must reject alias “Eli James’” (real name, Joseph November’s) absurd invented fairy tales, such as his promotion of the Mayan Calendar so-called prophecy and his own un-Biblical 2012 predictions; his promotion of fraudulent individuals, such as Ron Wyatt and Clayton Douglas, with their twisted fantasies; his unscientific and unproved belief in telegony; his many endorsements of productions parallel to the works of the Canaanite-jew Zecharia Sitchin, such as Sitchin’s imagined planet “Nibiru” and his misuse of the pagan Annunaki gods (which many of alias “Eli’s” E-mails resemble). One of the most unsound premises which alias “Eli” has adopted is deciding the interpretation of Scripture by casting lots Las Vegas style, rather than researching the original languages of the holy men who wrote them! Also, I must highly object to alias “Eli’s” fantasy that the adam, at Gen. 1:26 (without the “eth” and Hebrew Article), was somehow some kind of “narrowed down Cro-Magnon Caucasoid” rather than the first man to stand on the earth (as Scripture confirms so many times)! From all of these negative attributes of alias “Eli James”, if Yahweh’s Holy Word can be twisted, alias “Eli” will put his own twisted “spin” on it. To emulate Sitchin is to follow Satan!


To identify the seasons of the honeymoon, one must investigate the various periods where Israel kept the commandment of abstaining from worshipping other gods. As there were many periods of backsliding from, and resurgence back to the First Commandment by the various tribes at various times, it is hard to pin down one precise honeymoon period. In general, as all honeymoons go, the first couple of hundred years or so, Yahweh’s marriage to the twelve tribes went well.

We were warned at Exod. 34:14-16 where it states: 14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for Yahweh, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: 15 Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat [as Eve did] of his sacrifice; 16 And thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods.” Right away, at the beginning, the main issue was the problem of race-mixing.

What it amounts to is, Yahweh our Husband is a White Elohim, and He wants us to have White children! Verses 15-16 of Exodus chapter 34 above is the first incident of many where this same admonition is given not to race-mix. It appears again at Num. 25:2-9 in the matter of Baalpeor where 24,000 died of a plague for disobeying the instructions given at Exod. 34:14-16. Back then, it was primarily the men of our Israelite tribes that were violating Yahweh’s commandment; today by-and-large it’s our women! It is important to understand, ever since the beginning in the garden of Eden, wherever there were “other gods” there was a danger of miscegenation, bringing about the genocide of Yahweh’s original creation of Adam-man! So, whenever one observes a mixed-racial couple, accompanied by a mulatto child, Satan has accomplished his damnedest!

The epistle of Jude (evidently written by the brother of James, who in turn was a half-brother of Christ, Mark 6:3), comes down hard on race-mixing! Whoever Jude was addressing his epistle to must have been a cosmopolitan (i.e., representing many races and mixtures thereof) city. It is likely that, at Jude’s time, Jerusalem could be the candidate for the city intended, for its population was certainly a satanic mixture, yet a few pure Judahites remained.

The book of Jude is short and concise, but he didn’t mince words in addressing his proclamation against miscegenation! He denounced “the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation” to mix with animal-kind. For documentation on this, I will quote from an edition of the Qumran scrolls, The Dead Sea Scrolls, A New Translation by Michael Wise, Martin Abegg Jr. and Edward Cook, on page 247, a translation of 1Q23, fragments 1 and 6: “1 [... two hundred] 2 donkeys, two hundred asses, two hund[red ... rams of the] 3 flock, two hundred goats, two hundred [... beast of the] 4 field from every animal, from every [bird ...] 5 [...] for miscegenation [...]”. And in the same source, 4Q531, fragment 2: “1 [...] they defiled [...] 2 [... they begot] giants and monsters [...] 3 [...] they begot, and, behold, all [the earth was corrupted ...] 4 [...] with its blood and by the hand of [...] 5 [giants] which did not suffice for them and [...] 6 [...] and they were seeking to devour many [...] 7 [...] 8 the monsters attacked it.” Again, 4Q532, Col. 2 fragments 1-6: “2 [...] flesh [...] 3 al[l ...] monsters [...] will be [...] 4 [...] they would arise [...] lacking in true knowledge [...] because [...] 5 [...] the earth [grew corrupt ...] mighty [...] 6 [...] they were considering [...] 7 [...] from the angels upon [...] 8 [...] in the end it will perish and die [...] 9 [...] they caused great corruption in the [earth ...] 10 [... this did not] suffice to [...] 11 they will be [...]” [underlining mine]. While quite fragmentary, the general theme of these fragments from what is known as the Book of Giants is readily evident. You will notice here that the interpreter of the Dead Sea Scroll Book of Giants translated a word of the original language to English as “miscegenation”! Now alias “Eli James” (aka, Joseph November), don’t go telling everyone that we don’t have any evidence concerning this matter which falls into the category of archaeological evidence!

The book of Jude is very controversial in nature, with many readers not understanding its context. The entire twenty-five verses appear to revolve around a topic that was once well understood, but by Jude’s time was nearly forgotten. It may appear to some that Jude, in his brief discourse, is tiptoeing from subject to subject, but this is not the case. Rather, he is addressing one subject in its many manifestations. The one subject that Jude is addressing is revealed candidly in a couple of verses. At verse 7, it is crystal clear that the theme is about sexual impropriety in the forms of homosexuality and race-mixing. In verse 11, it is quite obvious, where it speaks of “the way of Cain” and “the error of Balaam”, the subject is about the violation of interracial sexual unions. Of course, to comprehend “the way of Cain” , we have to grasp that Genesis 4:1 is a corrupt passage, and that Cain was conceived by the sexual union of Satan with Eve, making him a half-breed. In other words, all mamzers (i.e., “bastards”) have gone “the way of Cain”!

The one verse that might not seem to have a sexual connotation is verse 9 where it states, “Yet Michael the archangel when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses ...” As there is no record of such an incident in the Old Testament of Michael and the devil disputing over Moses’ dead body, many reject the book of Jude as being canonical. However, if “the body of Moses” meant “the body of the law of Moses”, the laws pertaining to suitable and improper sexual unions would align with Jude’s subject. I usually try to document everything I present, but so many years have lapsed since I researched Jude 9, that I can’t remember the source where I found it, so you will have to determine the validity of this premise for yourself.

Well, if the entire 25 verses contained in the book of Jude pertain to illicit sex, then also does verse 6, where it says: “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.” As I have stated before several times in my writings, this incident of the fallen angels that sinned happened thousands of years before Adam was created at Gen. 1:27. And since the entire book of Jude concerns sexual sins, the “everlasting chains of darkness” relates to some kind of biological DNA covering (like black skin) in which the “angels that sinned” find themselves locked into. One other thing to notice about verse 6 is where it says in the KJV, “... kept not their first estate ...”, in the margin it has “or principality”. Barnes’ Notes on Jude, page 391 states: “The word properly means, beginning, commencement; and then that which surpasses others which is first, &c., in point of rank and honour; or pre-eminence, priority, precedence, princedom. Here it refers to the rank and dignity which the angels had in heaven. That rank or preeminence they did not keep, but fell from it.” It is obvious from this meaning that before these rebel angels fell, they held positions of very high rank in the heavenly realms, but once fallen their eminence turned into degradation of the lowest caliber, where they would devise every abominable act to corrupt Yahweh’s free of foreign matter creation, which they are still doing today through the genocidal miscegenation of the White race with the spawn of their own making. Once grasping Jude 6, we can better comprehend what Paul meant at Romans 8:38-39:

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of Yahweh, which is in Christ Yahshua our Master.” If Paul meant, “... nor things present, nor things to come ...”, we meet, and have to deal with these fallen angels on a daily basis! So, who are they? Dare we suggest that these “angels” and “principalities” are the unholy spawn of fallen angel and animal-kind, from long before the creation of Adam?

So what the twelve tribes of Israel’s honeymoon period with her Husband amounts to is the space of time between the marriage vows to Yahweh Elohim until the twelve tribes started to follow other gods, which, in turn, leads to race-mixing which is always inevitable.

Yahweh was quite stern when He instructed us at Lev. 26:1: “Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am Yahweh your God.”

It is stated very clearly at Isaiah 44:6-8 6 Thus saith Yahweh the King of Israel, and his redeemer Yahweh of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. 7 And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them shew unto them. 8 Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.”

At 1 Kings 8:23 we find the words of the wisest man who ever lived: “And he [Solomon] said, Yahweh God of Israel, there is no God like thee, in heaven above, or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy with thy servants that walk before thee with all their heart ...”

At Psalm 81:7-9 we read the admonition: 7 Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret place of thunder: I proved thee at the waters of Meribah. 8 Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me; 9 There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god.”

As long as the twelve tribes of Israel were faithful to her Husband, the honeymoon continued in bliss, but upon forgetting her wedding vows, Yahweh’s wife became hardened in heart, and at variance to His sovereign Will for her life. Israel began to observe the pagan peoples around her, and became envious of their kings, and their carnival-like show-and-tell vaudeville activities on every green hill. It appears that the people were happy at these lowlife carnivals, and soon the twelve tribes desired to join them in their sexual activities!
