GOD’S LOVE STORY

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 54:5-8, BBE
“For your Maker is your husband; the Lord [Yahweh] of armies is his name: and the Holy One of Israel is he who takes up your cause; he will be named the God of all the earth. For the Lord has made you come back to him, like a wife who has been sent away in grief of spirit; for one may not give up the wife of one’s early days. For a short time, I gave you up; but with great mercies I will take you back again. In overflowing wrath my face was veiled from you for a minute, but I will have pity on you for ever, says the Lord who takes up your cause.”
Our Scripture reading is a summation of God’s love story: Yahweh God is the Husband and Israel is the bride. There is a lot of Scripture in this lesson; but I felt it necessary, for the judeo-Christian world does not seem to be aware that such verses exist; and if they do, they are ignored.
If you were to ask the typical judeo-Christian to complete the phrase, “God is a God of ________,” nine times out of ten they would complete it with the word “love.” In this story, Yahweh is cast as the God of love. God’s love has been so often talked about in Christian circles that they really have a lopsided view of God’s character; and they do not know the love of God as well as they think they do. The purpose of this story is to reveal the true, one and only, object of God’s love. Only then, can one truly appreciate the love of God and how it is shown in your life.
The Apostle Paul spoke of the love of God:
“For while we were yet weak, in due season Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: for peradventure for the good man some one would even dare to die. But God commendeth his own love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, shall we be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.” – Rom. 5:6-10, ASV
Notice that God demonstrated his own love toward “us,” but if you do not know who the “us” is, then you do not know the full measure of God’s love that Paul speaks of in these verses. Nor do you know the greatest love story never told. So, who is the “us”?
“What then shall we say that Abraham, our forefather, hath found according to the flesh?” – Rom. 4:1
The Bible teaches that the “us” are the descendants of Abraham. It says “according to the flesh.” It did not say “spiritual Abraham.” We are talking about a real flesh and blood man, not a spiritualized example. The true people of God, the chosen, or “elect”, are real flesh and blood people of Abrahamic descent. Now, these are not jews, for as you recall from a previous sermon [Getting to First Base, p. 7] dealing with Jesus’ conversation with the jews (Jn. 8), He told them that they were of their father the devil, after they had claimed to be of Abraham’s descendants. Their claim may have been true, but the problem was that they had become a racial mix, and therefore disqualified from the covenant promises to the pure heirs.
Therefore, the “us” of Scripture is Israel, for they came from Abraham. In the biblical love story, Israel is the bride and Abraham is the father of the bride. God made a Covenant with Abraham, which is mentioned in the Bible at various stages of his life.
“As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.” – Gen. 17:4-7
Various aspects should be remembered about this Covenant:
Many nations would come from him.
Kings shall come from him.
The Covenant is with him and his descendants.
The Covenant is everlasting.
When we look at these characteristics as a whole, it is obvious that this cannot pertain to just any race in the world. It is all or nothing. It can only apply to the White race because they have born the fruits of Christian civilization. It certainly cannot apply to the “Jews” since they have always been a relatively small group down through history.
Also, one should note that since the Covenant is everlasting, it could not have been abrogated because of a New Covenant that was later made with Christ’s blood. That New Testament was only the extension of the original promise of God found in the Abrahamic covenant and therefore applied to the same people.
The Wedding Ceremony
We find the children of Israel encamped in the wilderness before the mount of Sinai. It is the third month from their leaving Egypt. God gives them the Law, which was the marriage covenant.
And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain saying, “Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; ‘Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself. 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: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation.’ These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.” And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which the LORD commanded him. And all the people answered together, and said, “All that the LORD hath spoken we will do.” And Moses returned the words of the people unto the LORD. – Ex. 19:3-8
This is the traditional “I do” of the marriage ceremony. From this moment on in Scripture, they were man and wife.
The Importance of Abraham
Where did this couple meet? Chapter 12 in Genesis is the first encounter between God and what was to become His bride, Israel. What follows from this point on is the subject matter of the whole Bible.
“Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” – Gen. 12:1-3
This passage is important because it introduces the father of the bride, Abram, who in the future would be called Abraham, which we saw in chapter 17, where God made His covenant with him and his seed.
Abraham is so important that he is mentioned 69 times in the New Testament. Most judeo-Christians practically ignore him and say, “All that matters is loving Jesus.” Luke mentions the importance of Abraham:
And Jesus said to him, This day salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost. – Lk. 19:9-10, MKJV
There are three things to note about this passage:
Dr. Luke makes it plain that salvation has something to do with being a son of Abraham.
Jesus came to save (or recover) that (not who) which has been (CNT) lost. The word “lost” is the Greek word sōzō, which according to Thayer means: “to save, keep safe and sound, to rescue from danger or destruction.” It does not necessarily have to apply to a person.
Being lost also has something to do with being from Abraham.
So, what was lost? The marriage, God’s government and the kingdom were lost to God’s people, Israel. That is what was lost for so long when Dr. Luke appeared on the scene.
The Israelites (whom God married) sprung from Abraham. His son, Isaac, had twin boys, Jacob and Esau (Gen. 25:23-26). Esau’s descendants became known as Edomites, and Jacob’s descendants were known as Israelites because God changed Jacob’s name to Israel (Gen. 35:10-12). God makes a declaration that most people cannot grasp because they will not accept what He says:
Even as it is written, Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated. – Rom. 9:13
This is quoted by the Apostle Paul; and it is written where? – Malachi 1: 2-3. And you thought God loved everybody the same! That is the other love story you hear down at the other churches. This is the greatest love story never told, not the non-story continually told.
Esau sold the birthright (Gen. 25:33) and lost God’s blessings to Jacob (Gen. 27:27). This is how he lost the right to be the bride. Do you suppose this caused some jealousy? Do you think Esau regretted the consequences of his hasty decision to sell his birthright? God did not spare His thoughts, but made it perfectly clear in unmistakable words.
Some would object and say, “Well, God doesn’t hate, He just loves less.” But this does not fit the description by judeo-Christian churches that God loves everybody the same (not less). What kind of story would this be if God loved them all the same? Can you imagine your wife asking you, “Do you love me more than anyone else, dear?” and you reply, “Well, I love you just like I love all women, honey.” Do you think that would work? God loves His wife with all his heart. Is there anything wrong with the Husband in this story loving His woman more than any other woman on the Earth? If this is gone, we haven’t even got a story. Why get married if you are going to love all women the same?
In Deuteronomy, we find how this Husband feels about His bride:
Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORD’S thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is. Only the LORD 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. – Deu. 10:14-15
I believe this is what God is saying in this passage: I own it all – everything, and I am sovereign, i.e., I can do what I want. I can pick whom I desire as my bride, and make them my “special” people, “above all” the other races of the world. God also referred to His bride as a very special “treasure”. “For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto Himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure” (Ps. 135:4).
The judeo-Christian world would say this Scripture (and others) makes God appear as a “racist” and “hater” because He chose a particular ethnic group as His bride. Do they have a legitimate argument? No! As men, we choose to marry a particular woman out of all the other women of the world. Does that mean that we hate all the other women of the world? Certainly not, we only choose one bride for that special place in lifetime partnership. So also does God, according to His sovereign will, choose the one race for His divine purposes; and just because He rejects the others, does not mean that He hates all the other races of the world (although there are some that He plainly declares He hates).
God’s Expectations of the Bride
In return for all God’s blessing and honor, we should note what He expected from His wife:
“And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?” –Deut. 10:12-13
The first thing God required from His wife was respect. This is the meaning of “fear”. This means reverence. There was not going to be any mouthing off to this Husband. In contrast, the jewish controlled media known as TV (Talmud vision) spews forth disrespect for the man by his wife: remember the show “I Love Lucy” and how everyone laughed when Ricky was no longer feared or revered? Of course, TV has come a long way since then and it is far worse now; but it goes to show how our people are manipulated in their attitudes. The same can apply to how Americans’ attitudes have changed toward interracial marriages.
What else did God require of His wife? To walk in all His ways. He expected to be the boss in this marriage. She was not to lead Him, but He was to lead her. But what did God want more than anything else? He wanted her to love Him with all her heart all her mind and all her soul. He did not want a master/slave relationship; He wanted her heart because she had His heart. God’s definition of love has never changed. Jesus said, “If ye love me, ye will keep my commandments” (Jn. 14:15).
As the story unfolds, we will see that God loved her so much that He would actually have to die for her.
The Adulterous Wife
In Deuteronomy, we find God talking to His wife:
“Thy fathers went down into Egypt with threescore and ten persons; and now the LORD thy God hath made thee as the stars of heaven for multitude.” – Deut. 10:22
We are not talking about a people who were to remain small in number. At the time of the wedding, in Exodus 19, His bride was well over a million people and growing. Remember the Covenant with Abraham that said they would become as the “stars of heaven”?
The children of Israel began to show signs of unfaithfulness to Yahweh, her Husband, even at Mt. Sinai.
“And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we know not what is become of him. And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden rings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me. And all the people brake off the golden rings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. And he received it at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, and made it a molten calf: and they said, These are thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.” – Ex. 32:1-4
It seemed to the wife that her Husband had gone on a long business trip. She remained at home. Moses had not come down from the mountain and Aaron had made them a golden calf. It is not so much the calf that is the point, but the false ways the calf represented. It’s like the elephant that is the symbol for the Republicans and the donkey which is the symbol for the Democrats. These men in Israel were re-arranging the house, setting things up differently from the way the Husband had set them up. They were practicing Baal worship, i.e., anything other than what God had commanded them, just as America today.
Briefly, they were setting up their own type of government, as they conceived and desired. The calf merely represented their own way just as the eagle represents our system of government today. They would look to it as the source of their security and wealth. However, Yahweh wanted His bride to look to Him for those provisions and blessings. He was her protector, counselor, and lawmaker. He would teach her children and see to it that she was healthy. But she had changed things around and brought another man into her life. This was not a good situation: “And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people” (Ex. 32:9).
Because of His intense love for her, Yahweh went into a jealous rage:
“Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.” – Ex. 32:10
Fortunately, there was a man, the one, who officiated at the wedding, who stepped in as a counselor; and said:
“…LORD, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand? Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people.” – Ex. 32:11-12
Then Moses reasons with God:
“Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever. And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.” – Ex. 32:13-14
After this, the Husband had a second talk with the wife. This was the book of Deuteronomy, which means “the second giving of the Law”. He laid down the rules of the household once again. This was the way it must be:
“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.” – Deut. 28:1-2
He coaxes her with all the blessings that will come from His hand. Then He gives her fair warning:
“But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee.” – Deut. 28:15
Following this is a list of curses, for where there are no blessings; only curses can naturally follow to replace the vacuum. These blessings and curses were to follow their descendants forever: “And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever” (Deut. 28:46).
Another grave warning was issued:
“And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it. And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.” – Deut. 28:63-64
Through the period of the Judges, Israel had her ups and downs. With Kings and Chronicles, Israel played the harlot and worshipped many Baals and Ashteroths. Finally, the kingdom was divided into two houses: the House of Israel and the House of Judah.
The Husband is long-suffering, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But finally, He has had enough.
The Husband stands at the door as His estranged wife is leaving. She is in tears, but not tears of repentance, rather they are tears of desperation, regret, and attempted persuasion from her Husband that has failed. Tears shed too late for the consequences, but not for her behavior. Tears shed when she finally realizes that she is now reaping what she has sown.
“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. – Jer. 3:8
…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.” – Isa. 50:1
The wife cries, “What on earth will I do? What will happen to me?”
She is exiled from the home. He removes the blessings and comforts she has long taken for granted. Through Hosea the prophet, her heartbroken Husband reveals her sordid affairs:
“I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feasts, her new moons, and her sabbaths, and all her solemn assemblies. And I will lay waste her vines and her fig trees, whereof she hath said, These are my hire that my lovers have given me; and I will make them a forest, and the beasts of the field shall eat them. And I will visit upon her the days of the Baalim, unto which she burned incense, when she decked herself with her earrings and her jewels, and went after her lovers, and forgat me, saith Jehovah.” – Hosea 2:11-13, ASV
The only thing she has left to hold on to is hope. What is to happen? Are they ever to be reunited? Did He stop loving her? Did she ever repent of her ugly ways? “And Jehovah said, Call his name Lo-ammi; for ye are not my people, and I will not be your God” (Hosea 1:9). What an awful position in which she found herself.
As mentioned before, Israel found herself split into two kingdoms, one in the north called the House of Israel, and one to the south known as the House of Judah. Israel comprised ten of the tribes, while Judah comprised the other three tribes (Judah, Benjamin, Levi). This is very important for students of the Bible to consider, for without it one cannot properly understand and interpret the Word of God. This division of the kingdom is a key point in biblical history.
With a series of invasions and deportations (see II Kings 17:6-18), Israel was scattered throughout Asia and Europe and most of Judah was taken to Babylon. “I [Yahweh] will cause to cease the kingdom of the house of Israel” (Hosea 1:4). In a matter of about 150 years, millions of Israelites were dispersed to other locations. At the time of the united kingdom under King David there were between ten and fifteen million Israelites (this many could not have died off). Now, very little was left in Palestine, other than foreigners (sounds like America’s immigration problem).
“For the LORD shall smite Israel, as a reed is shaken in the water, and he shall root up Israel out of this good land, which he gave to their fathers, and shall scatter them beyond the river, because they have made their groves, provoking the LORD to anger. –1 Ki. 14:15
Israel is a scattered sheep; the lions have driven him away: first the king of Assyria hath devoured him; and last this Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon hath broken his bones.” – Jer. 50:17
Would the Husband forget His divorced wife?
“But Zion said, The LORD hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.” – Isa. 49:14-15
Yahweh still remembered and provided for His estranged wife.
A New Land and the “Seven Times Punishment”
“Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime.” – 2 Sam. 7:10
Israel was divorced from God (Jer. 3:8) and no longer considered His people (Hosea 1:1-10). This culminated in the Assyrian invasions and Babylonian captivity, which scattered Israel into the nations of the world, and thus the birthright blessings were withheld for a period known as the “seven times punishment”. “Seven times” is seen in Leviticus 26:18, 21, 24 and 28, where God promised to punish Israel for a long period, that being 2,520 years. It is commonly accepted that a “time” is a prophetic year of 360 days. The number 7 is seen many times throughout the Bible.
In long-term prophecy, the days are years. This is seen in Numbers 14:34, “After the number of the days in which ye searched the land ... each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities” and in Ezekiel 4:6, “And thou shalt bear the iniquity ... I have appointed thee each day for a year.” Daniel (12:7) also mentions the expression “A time, times and an half.” The word “times” is more than one, which would mean a doubling of 360, or 720, and “half a time” would be 180. Add them up: 360+720+180 and you get 1,260. Therefore, “seven times” is seven multiplied by 360, which equals 2,520 years.
The first campaign by the Assyrians against Israel began in 745 B.C. Many more invasions followed. Precisely (and adding a year from 1 B.C. to 1 A.D.) 2,520 years from 745 B.C. is the final date where the “seven times punishment” expires upon the nation of Israel. That date is July 4, 1776! Is that date familiar to Americans? Indeed, it is familiar to America, Britain, and western civilization.
In 734 B.C., the half tribe of Manasseh, mainly of Machir (from which the word America is derived), Yair and Gilead were taken away. When we subtract 2,520 years from 734 B.C. we come to 1787 A.D. This happens to be the year when the Constitution of the United States was created. Delaware became the first state of the United States of America on 7 December 1787. It was also the first state to ratify the new U.S. Constitution, hence its nickname “First in the Nation”.
In 721 B.C. Israel’s capital, Samaria, fell to the Assyrians. Exactly 2,520 years later, in 1800, the U.S. capital was moved from Philadelphia to Washington, DC.
In 718 B.C., Assyria captured Samaria and took the remaining people captive to Halah, Hara and the river of Gozan. Depending on who wrote the history, these people were called Khumri, Gimiri, Cimmerians, and Scythians. If we subtract 2,520 years from 718 B.C., we come to 1803. It is interesting that 1803 happens to be the year of the Louisiana Purchase. This greatly increased the land for re-gathered Israel in America and at a bargain price. God was blessing Manasseh.
Therefore, this new “appointed place” spoken of by Samuel’s prophecy is America. How else can we explain these “coincidences” with these remarkable dates?
“Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her. And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor for a door of hope: and she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt.” – Hos. 2:14-15
Wasn’t America a “wilderness” and isn’t this land the best that she has had since leaving the land of Egypt? “Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee” (Jer. 31:3). The loving Husband provided a larger and more prosperous land for Israel’s growing population.
The Coming of the Prince
“And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Judah: for out of thee shall come a Governor that shall rule my people Israel.” – Matt. 2:6
Take note that this is a New Testament verse. The judeo-Christian churches teach that the characters in God’s love story have changed. In Act I (the Old Testament), they show a God of wrath, but in Act II (the New Testament), He is a God of love. In Act 1, they write that God was dealing with the Jews, and in Act 2, they show Him dealing with the Gentiles. In Act 1, they show God dealing with literal Israel (which they think are Jews), and in Act 2, He now deals with a “spiritual” Israel (which they think is all races). Do you see how confusing this is? But no, when God wrote the Script, He kept the same theme and characters in giving us the greatest love story never told by judeo-Christianity.
We of Christian Identity tell it like it is: God is the Husband and Israel is the bride. Yahweh does not look for another bride within the New Testament, nor does He look for a multi-racial bride. This is the kind of looney-tune story-line of the fake churches.
Many centuries have passed and we wonder about the estranged wife. She wonders, “Is He coming back for me?” One thing she held on to was hope. Out of the princes (or rulers) of Judah was to come a Governor to shepherd Israel.
“Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people.” – Lk.1:68
Here was Zacharias looking for the redemption of Israel. Israel has held to the hope of a Prince on a white horse to come and rescue her, because she has understood the mistakes she has made.
“…And thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” – Matt. 1:21
Many years had passed since that warning in Deuteronomy 28:64, where He said if she didn’t follow the Law He laid down, that He would cast her among the nations. Do we find evidence in the New Testament of her whereabouts at this point? Yes. The jews queried themselves, “Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles [nations], and teach the Gentiles?” (Jn. 7:35). There were a remnant of Israelites still in Judea, but the largest number (millions) of them were now far beyond the Euphrates all over Asia and Europe, holding on to hope.
“And I will betroth thee unto me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies. I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know the LORD.” – Hosea 2:19-20
Hasn’t America known the Lord God of Israel? She has in her earlier days. Now she is failing and returning to her Baals. Will she ever learn?
“As he saith also in Osee [Hosea], I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.” – Rom. 9:25-26
This is a direct quote by Paul from Hosea 2:23; nearly word for word.
“But he [Jesus] answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” – Matt. 15:24
“Sheep” is always a metaphor of Israel, never is it a type for any other people or race.
A New Marriage Covenant
What was the New Testament (covenant) all about? It was a new marriage agreement with the same bride, the same people. God’s love story does not switch out and change characters.
“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.” – Jer. 31:31-33
This is also quoted in the New Testament book, Hebrews (8:8-10), almost word for word. Therefore, the judeo-Christians cannot use the excuse, “That is an Old Testament Scripture.”
“And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.” – Heb. 9:15
The first testament is the Old Covenant (now gone), and Christ has established the New Covenant in His blood. They shall be His people.
Yes, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is a God of love, but we must beware not to play the same note over and over again, as the judeo-Christians do. They constantly repeat John 3:16, “For God so loved the world…” with the opinion that it is to be understood in a universal sense. They have made it the most famous verse in the Bible, but they are quoting it wrong. We need to understand it from God’s perspective.
What “world” did God so love? None but the limited world of God’s Adamic creation, i.e., the world of God’s elect people, Israel.
Furthermore, it is God’s love for His Arrangement of the marriage to His bride that He gave His only Son to die. Historian and Greek scholar, William Finck, translated this verse, “For Yahweh so loved the Society that He gave the most beloved Son.” His use of the term “Society” is totally justified because the meaning of the word “world” does not always mean the “whole world.” The Scripture uses “world” many times in a limited scope. This is proper because it designates the exclusive race for whom Christ died. Other terms could be used, such as:
“God so loved the world of Israel…” or,
“God so loved the Order…” or,
“God so loved the Elect…” or,
“God so loved the Church…”
The various teachers of judeo-churchianity have their own definitions of what each of these terms mean, according to their respective seminary training, most of them being a futuristic view of end-time prophecies. However, in our view, it is Scriptural to identify all these groups as the same people – Israel. This is in perfect harmony with what the Bible teaches about God and His Covenant relationship with Adamkind.
Evidence that the word “Order” is an appropriate term is seen below:
“Taxonomy is the practice of identifying different organisms, classifying them into categories, and naming them. All organisms, both living and extinct, are classified into distinct groups with other similar organisms and given a scientific name.
The classification of organisms has various hierarchical categories. Categories gradually shift from being very broad and including many different organisms to very specific and identifying single species.
There are eight distinct taxonomic categories. These are: Domain, Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, and Species.
With each step down in classification, organisms are split into more and more specific groups. For example, all of the animals in the Kingdom Animalia are split into multiple phyla (plural of phylum). All of the animals in the phylum Chordata are split into multiple classes such as mammals, reptiles, and amphibians.” – basicbiology.net
God has categorized living organisms. Therefore, in regard to John 3:16, interpreting “the world” as “the Order” or “the Society” is in complete harmony with what we know about God’s Word.
I would like to ask the judeo-Christian world a few questions:
Since God’s love is so demonstratively immense for a particular people, would it make sense for Him to marry a multi-racial bride?
Since God’s marriage Covenant with Israel is “everlasting”, is it consistent to say that the New Covenant is for everyone?
Since the patriarchs of Israel are never called “Jews” in the Bible, why is it that today’s churches call them Jews?
If the Jews are the “chosen people” (according to judeos) then where does that leave the rest of us?
If “all are equal” (according to judeos) then how can there be a “chosen people”?
I hope this will give the fantasy world of “Judeo-Christianity” something to consider. God so loved the Bride that He gave the most beloved Son.
…to be continued.
