GETTING TO FIRST BASE
by James N. Jester
March 10, 2019
Scripture Reading: “Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.” – John 4:22
If you don’t know who you are, how can you work toward the kingdom? Your identity will determine your destiny. Knowing who you are will increase your faith; which in turn will cause you to act (remember the book of Acts). Knowing who we are as the chosen race will determine our actions; therefore, the first base is race. It is on this issue where everything else rests. Many people have a problem with the race issue; but if we cannot make the first base, then we are not in the game at all.
In the first message of this series, I briefly touched on some racial areas. So in review:
I mentioned 2 Chron. 7:14, “If my people, which are called by my name…”
I mentioned Ex. 19:3-6, “…tell the children of Israel…if ye will obey my voice indeed and keep my Covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people…an holy nation.”
I mentioned Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” i.e., racial knowledge of our identity.
I mentioned Amos 3:2, “You only have I known of all the families of the earth.”
I mentioned Deut. 14:2, “For thou art an holy people (separated) …above all the nations…” and said these are all racial statements and that racial purity and supremacy is a Bible doctrine.
I mentioned that Ezra condemned the mixed marriages and separated those families from Israel.
These statements may have raised some questions in the mind of the judeo-Christian, such as, “Is this preacher a racist?” Of course, the term “racist” needs defining because it usually is used as a synonym for “hate”, which I deny (although the term could include hatred).
So yes, I proudly admit I am a racist in the same sense that God is a racist. I am not filled with hate any more than God is filled with hate. However, what God plainly declares that He hates, I do as well. We may hate but we do not have any malice, animus or ill will toward anyone (unless, of course, malice is imposed upon us).
With this message, I want to delve specifically into the topic of Racial Salvation. This topic is never mentioned or even thought of in the typical mainstream judeo-Christian church. Therefore, our opening scripture makes the racial statement, “…Salvation is of the ‘Jews’ (should be Judeans or Judahites).”
If I were to compare the Christian life to a baseball game, first base would be race, second base would be our service to God, third base would be our death and home base would be our heavenly reward in the kingdom of God. At present, the state of the church is absolutely useless and abhorrent in the eyes of God because they have no racial consciousness. They are colorblind and all-inclusive. Therefore, getting them to First Base is the purpose of this message.
The other races were not designed for Christianity. They simply do not have the capacity to know God’s Spirit. As Jesus said to one group of people, “ye cannot hear my words” (Jn. 8:43). Only God’s chosen (elect) people were designed for the Christian faith and only they have promoted it for centuries.
In the News
"A New York laboratory has cut its ties with Dr. James D. Watson, the Nobel prize-winning scientist who helped discover the structure of DNA, over “reprehensible” comments in which he said race and intelligence are connected.
The Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory said it was revoking all titles and honors, which include chancellor emeritus, Oliver R. Grace professor emeritus, and honorary trustee; conferred on Watson, 90, who led the lab for many years.
The lab “unequivocally rejects the unsubstantiated and reckless personal opinions Dr. Watson expressed on the subject of ethnicity and genetics”, its president, Bruce Stillman, and chair of the board of trustees, Marilyn Simons, said in a statement.
The scientist was one of the researchers who discovered the double helix structure of DNA in 1953.
In 2007, the lab removed him as chancellor after he told the Sunday Times he was “inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa” because “all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours, whereas all the testing says, not really.”
He also said that while he wished the races were equal, “people who have to deal with black employees find this not true.”
Watson apologized at the time but in a recent documentary, he said his views have not changed. “Not at all,” he said in the PBS documentary American Masters: Decoding Watson, the New York Times reported. “I would like for them to have changed, that there be new knowledge that says that your nurture is much more important than nature. But I haven’t seen any knowledge. And there’s a difference on the average between blacks and whites on IQ tests. I would say the difference is, it’s genetic.”
The latest comments “effectively reverse the written apology and retraction Dr. Watson made in 2007”, the lab said, adding it appreciated his legacy of scientific discoveries and leadership of the institution but could no longer be associated with him. “The statements he made in the documentary are completely and utterly incompatible with our mission, values, and policies, and require the severing of any remaining vestiges of his involvement,” Simons and Stillman said. [I would not be surprised if both are jews]
The Times reported that Watson’s family said he was unable to respond, having been in medical care since a car accident in October. The PBS interview was filmed last summer." The Guardian.com (UK)
I looked up Watson and Stillman on Wikipedia and Watson’s qualifications filled many pages while Stillman’s hardly filled one page. But that may be due to age difference.
Back to Sermon
In the last sermon (lesson 2 of the series) we looked at the major scriptural identifying marks of Israel. In so doing, we also discovered that the ethnic group known as the “Jews” does not in any manner coincide with their claim that they are the “chosen of God.”
In this sermon, we want to prove from the New Testament that the Bible is a racial book. The reason for looking to the N. T. is because most judeo-Christians will not accept the Old Testament, especially if it pertains to racial statements – they simply want to brush off such statements with responses like, “that’s O. T. and Jesus changed all that; we don’t need it anymore.”
In our opening text, “salvation is of the Jews” (Jn. 4:22), Jesus is speaking to the Samaritan woman about the proper way to worship God. She had mentioned “this mountain,” which was the Mt. Gerizim temple. This is where the mixed race Samaritan’s worshipped ‘Baal’ for over 400 years, and at this time was in ruins. There were two locations (Dan and Bethel) in the former northern kingdom of Israel. When Jesus appeared at this time in history, Judea was becoming a “melting pot.” This temple was the forerunner of universalism and Roman Catholicism. The pure race Judeans worshipped at the temple in Jerusalem. What is the lesson?
The mixed race judeo-Christian churches of today are not true Churches. Only the pure, separated Israelite church is a true Church. Therefore, America is filled with ‘Baalism’ (universalism) and has ‘Baal priests.’ The false judeo church will take our text “salvation is of the Jews” and interpret it to mean that “Jews” gave us our Savior and the Bible, claiming that Judaism is the root of Christianity. Nothing could be further from the truth, because today’s “Jews” are an entirely different people than the word (‘Idumean’) translated into “Jew” was intended to convey 2000 years ago. Jews are usurpers of Israel’s identity.
Israel – A Race
Is Israel a race? Most certainly! God created genetics and race. When people breed outside their own race, they destroy their racial line and are no longer “kind after kind” as God intended.
The Greek word for “nations” is ethnos, which according to Strong’s means; a race, a tribe; specifically a foreign - Gentile, heathen, nation, people. The Hebrew equivalent of this word is goy. The Bible uses many similar words, applied in various ways, such as: family, kin, kind, kindred, generation, miscegenation, gentile, genesis and nation. All these originating or containing the Greek word gene (pronounced hard g, ge-ne’; we use it as “gene”). The context will indicate who is being spoken of. Any of these words can apply to a particular race. In the Septuagint, the word allogenes (allos = another, genos = race) is used to show prohibitions regarding certain kinds of “strangers.” Properly interpreted, this word means “of another race.” Yes, Israel is a race – and a major race at that – unlike the small group known as “Jews” which are not a true race, but are a mixed race people.
So, of course there are races in the world. The idea promoted and forced upon us today that there are no races: “only one race, the human race,” is foolish and denies the genetic reality of race.
“For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.” –Deu. 14:2
In this verse, the words “people” and “nations” are translated from the identical Hebrew word, am, and means: “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.” –Strong’s
“People” in this verse are identified as Israel; however, “nations” could be identified as almost anybody, including Israel, for it says “nations that are upon the earth.”
Jesus’ Conversation with the Jews
One of the fastest ways to get to First Base are the words of Jesus to the jews. Many Bible students have been confused about this conversation simply because they have been neutered when it comes to racial issues. Christians have been brainwashed for so long by TV, education and even churches that they find racial issues repugnant. The politically correct judeo church has taught them, “Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world: red, brown, yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight, Jesus loves the little children of the world.” Many things such as this have conditioned us against racial issues. Let’s read this conversation from John 8:31-48,
“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
33 They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. 35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. 36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
37 I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. 38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father.
Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. 40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. 41 Ye do the deeds of your father.
Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. 46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? 47 He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?”
If ever I have been confused with Scripture, it has been with this passage. In the first place, Jesus was talking with jews “who had believed.” Next, this group of jews claimed to be Abraham’s seed; but they also claimed they had never been in bondage. Every Christian knows that Israelites were in bondage in Egypt and later in the captivities. Yet these jews said they had “never yet been enslaved.” Jesus openly admits that they are Abraham’s offspring. Yet later He says, “If you are Abraham’s children, do the deeds of Abraham.” Then He lays this on them, “You are of your father the devil and you want to do the desires of your father.” Moreover, He goes a step further saying they do not hear the words of God “because you are not of God.”
If Christ ever told off a group of people, it is these “Jews” in John 8. In telling them off, He has had me in confusion for many years. You must admit it seems impossible to reconcile the fact that Jesus admitted they were Abraham’s offspring and yet they were not even of God. There must be an answer to this problem. Most judeo teachers simply spiritualize passages like this saying there are those who make profession of Christ but are not serious about a Christian life; and so, in their moral character they are ‘children of the devil’ or ‘children of God.’
In verse 41 of this chapter, the jews bring up the subject of “fornication.” This word does not seem to fit into the context of this conversation where Jesus is defending His Messiahship. Why would they bring up fornication in the middle of this? Because Jesus said they were not Abraham’s children; even though He admitted they were Abraham’s seed. There is a difference here. Jesus knew about the problem of race mixing, which is the primary meaning of “fornication” (porneia). What these jews secretly knew about themselves began to torment them. In denial of what they knew to be true, they said, “We were not born of fornication.”
Fornication to the people of that time meant only one thing – mixing the blood of Abraham with foreign blood. These jews were half-breeds that were in denial. One side of their ancestry could be traced back to Abraham; but on the other side of their ancestry, Jesus traced to the devil (Cain, non-Israelite). This is the only sensible explanation of this account in John.
Further proof that this is the proper understanding of this passage is the reaction of the jews. In verse 48, they accused Jesus of being a Samaritan. Why a Samaritan? Because everyone knew that Samaritans were half-breeds, part Israelite left in the land from the Assyrian invasion and part something else. They accused Jesus of the very thing they were guilty of. They lost the argument with Jesus so they put the guilt on Him.
Now what about “the jews which believed on Him?” Remember, Judea was a mixed race area: some “Jews” (actually Judahite) were of pure Israelite race; other jews were not (mixed, hybrid); but all these could be called Judeans (commonly mistranslated as “Jews”). These hybrid jews could not even hear God’s words (v. 47). Bible translations cause us to miss the race issue on many occasions. But in truth, race and inheritance is what the Bible is all about. One cannot fully grasp the Bible without getting to the first base – race.
With this in mind, we can now see the truth of our text, “Salvation is of the Judeans” (the pure Judahites of Judea, which are Israelite lineage; Judea being the last vestige of the kingdom of God on Earth). – Jn. 4:22
Consider the impact of this on the assumptions of judeo-Christianity:
To claim the Jews are God’s Chosen People is to say that God is the devil. He would have to be the devil because Jesus insists the devil was their father. Those who habitually credit the jews as being God’s chosen bring blasphemous dishonor to the God they claim to worship.
To equate Jews with Israelites is to make void God’s greatest creation – Adamic man. God did not create half-breeds. Jesus traced his ancestry back to Abraham and Adam. Jesus was Israelite and Israelites likewise trace themselves back to Abraham and Adam. While the Jew may have a trace of Abraham’s blood, this Godly quality is lost to this life and for the life to come.
Those who claim that Jesus was a Jew have not understood this chapter in John, for Jesus said the Jews were not of God. That Jesus is God disqualifies him as being a Jew. Jesus was not a product of fornication – not a half-breed Jew.
The mixing of blood through miscegenation always produces inferior breeds (as with animals, so with people). These hybrid peoples have lost forever the Godly characteristics of Adamkind. Once a line of descendants is polluted in this manner, the likeness of Adam can never be regained. This being true, consider the anger that is stirred by God when a preacher stands in the pulpit and gives credence and approval to interracial marriage.
There were several occasions when the jews have become a mixed breed. One instance spoken of by Jeremiah the prophet is two baskets of figs in Babylon: the good figs and the very bad figs. Within the 70 years of captivity, the Judahites began to marry within the Babylonians. Their offspring lost the Godly attributes created in Adam. The result was the “very bad figs, which could not be eaten, due to rottenness” (Jer. 24:2). God said about these bad figs,
“And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them.” – Jer. 24:9
Let us reiterate these two significant facts:
Jews are a racial mix (hybrid), not of Adam, not of God’s creation.
Race-mixing always and forever produces an inferior being.
Is it any wonder that the Jews have not fared well throughout history (until now, in the last days). There must have been good reason for them to be expelled 47 times in the last 1000 years from every country in Europe and Russia alone, sometimes more than once:
Mainz, 1012; France, 1182; Upper Bavaria, 1276; England, 1290; France, 1306; France, 1322; Saxony, 1349; Hungary, 1360; Belgium, 1370; Slovakia, 1380; France, 1394; Austria, 1420; Lyons, 1420; Cologne, 1424; Mainz, 1438; Augsburg, 1438; Upper Bavaria, 1442; Netherlands, 1444; Brandenburg, 1446; Mainz, 1462; Mainz, 1483; Warsaw, 1483; Spain, 1492; Italy, 1492; Lithuania, 1495; Portugal, 1496; Naples, 1496; Navarre, 1498; Nuremberg, 1498; Brandenburg, 1510; Prussia, 1510; Genoa, 1515; Naples, 1533; Italy, 1540; Naples, 1541; Prague, 1541; Genoa, 1550; Bavaria, 1551; Prague, 1557; Papal States, 1569; Hungary, 1582; Hamburg, 1649; Vienna, 1669; Slovakia, 1744; Moravia, 1744; Bohemia, 1744; Moscow, 1891.
Now, we should ask a few questions, “were all these countries wrong? Were they just a bunch of haters and ‘Nazis?’ Were the jews victimized and treated terribly, as they claim, attempting to make us Whites feel guilty? Isn’t is more likely that the problem was with the jew, rather than with these countries?”
I think we can assume these countries knew something about racial and national salvation. America also needs to repent of jew worship.
Born Again or Born From Above
There are denominations that take the one verse, “Ye must be born again” (Jn. 3:3) and push it in their sermons nearly every Sunday morning in various forms such as “accepting Jesus” or “getting saved”, which ideas are not found anywhere in the Bible; and they use it as if it were found everywhere in Scripture. Actually, it does not exist. This is the second most misquoted verse in the Bible, right after John. 3:16.
“The term ‘born again’ is an incorrect translation; and many Bibles note this in their margins with the words ‘from above’ to show this is what the original word mean. Jesus did not use the word ‘again.’ Ancient manuscripts prove this. Jesus used the word ‘anothen’ (Strong’s G509 anothen, Includes from above, or from the first). Therefore, rather than being ‘born again’ in some kind of spiritual sense is wrong. Born ‘from above’ refers to those of God’s chosen race, ‘born from an original sowing’” – Ramsey.
Whom did God beget? “Thus saith the Lord, Israel is my son, even my firstborn” (Ex. 4:22). This is purely racial.
The translators of the Bible have picked up on Nicodemus’ confusion about returning to his mother’s womb a second time. As Jesus said to Nicodemus, are you a teacher of Israel and know not these things (v10)?
The true meaning of this passage is found in its racial implication, i.e., those born “from above,” from God’s people, Israel; who will see the kingdom of God. Truly, race is first base and comes before grace.
Furthermore, these fake pastors of judeo-churchianity will ignore verses that indicate any racial connotation, such as “salvation is of the Judeans” (as in our text) or “Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated” (found in both O.T. and N.T.). And, there are many such verses found in almost every book of the Bible that make the racial connection to salvation. Yet, with all of these locations, almost never will you hear these verses mentioned by these Baal priests.
Jesus’ Parable – Tares Among Wheat
Another example of Jesus’ words explaining race is His parable of the Tares and Wheat:
“Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? From whence then hath it tares?” –Matt. 13:24-27.
The “good seed” (wheat) are the elect race and the “tares” (weeds) are the other races. Remember the prophesied struggle between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent in Genesis 3:15? Jesus is illustrating the ancient principle that began in Eden.
Many will say this is not about race but is just an illustration of good and bad people in general. However, our Lord Himself explained the parable to His followers.
“Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; the field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear” –Matt. 13:36-43.
The good seed are the children of God. It would be incorrect to assume that all unbelievers are Tares. Many theologians say the Tares are followers of the wicked one or just wicked people. However, the Tares are the descendants of the cursed races. Jesus called them “the children of the wicked one.” He did not say they were unbelievers or evil people who needed to repent. They were, genetically, what they are. They cannot help it.
The word for “seed” is sperma (G4690); “something sown, that is, seed (including the male “sperm”); by implication offspring; specifically a remnant (figuratively as if kept over for planting): - issue, seed.” –Strong’s Dictionary. Thus, these Tares are the offspring of the “serpent” (obviously more than a snake) as shown in Genesis 3:15.
Eve’s own testimony as to what happened in the garden:
“And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat” –Gen. 3:13.
The word (H5377) for “beguile” is naw-shaw’, and means, “to lead astray, that is, (mentally) to delude, or (morally) to seduce: - beguile, deceive, X greatly, X utterly.” –Strong’s Dictionary
In the Greek Septuagint the word for “beguile” is hepatese, which is defined by Bauer as “deceive, cheat, seduce sexually.” Thus, Eve has confessed to having been seduced sexually by the serpent. This does not mean, necessarily, that she had sex with the serpent, but she did have sex with someone.
In verse three in this chapter: “But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die” (Gen. 3:3). The word (H5060) for “touch” is naw-gah’, and means, “properly to touch, that is, lay the hand upon (for any purpose; euphemistically, to lie with a woman)” –Strong’s. Consulting the Septuagint, it uses the word haptesthai (a form of hepatese), which means “sexual intercourse.” Bauer: “to touch, take hold of, someone, of intercourse with a woman, touching.” Other lexicons define it similarly.
In both of these verses, there is a sexual connotation. Although these words can be used in a non-sexual way, the context shows that something sexual was going on in Eden.
Someone might object and say that Eve was speaking of trees. But, is it possible that this account should be considered metaphorically? Yes. Ezekiel chapter 31 speaks of the Assyrian nation as a great Cypress tree and speaks of other peoples using a tree as a representation. Near the end of the allegory, it even speaks of the “trees of Eden.” Thus, the tree can refer to a race or nation of people. We use the metaphor of a “family tree” today to describe our ancestry.
There has always been enmity and conflict between the descendants of Cain and the descendants of Seth. “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” (Gen. 3:15). Although most churches have never considered the truth found in this verse, it is undeniable that there are two seed lines in view here. Therefore, these seed lines must have come through Eve’s heteropaternal superfecundation (twins by two different fathers). Where else could it have come from?
The word “seed” is both singular and plural in its use: prophetically, referring to the promised Messiah; and literally, a good seed line of descendants in opposition to a wicked seed line of descendants.
The question may arise, “Whom then did Eve have sex with (besides Adam)?” She admitted that the serpent seduced her, but did this creature, whoever he may be, actually impregnate Eve?
There are two theories held by those in Christian Identity: 1) that the serpent was Satan (angelic being) who actually impregnated Eve. 2) That the serpent convinced Eve to copulate with a person of another race that was in the garden. This person was a representative of the serpent. Eve’s act was in direct contradiction to God’s command “not to touch it, lest ye die.” In either case, Eve being the first miscegenator, brought death to her race (or her family tree). She also convinced Adam to do the same. It was not an apple that they were eating – it was a sexual event.
Whoever this person was that created another seed line through Cain and caused such enmity in the world, as Genesis 3:15 states; he was evidently a pre-Adamite, non-white and part of “the beasts of the field” spoken of in the Bible.
The Bible traces the cursed people through the ages.
“The Canaanite shows up in history as the Edomites and other descendants who have been the historical enemy of God, His children and His kingdom. The Canaanite has constantly killed God’s people in war and persecution; and when that was not possible, the Canaanite has been very successful using the race-mixing card to bring God’s wrath upon His people” –Everett Ramsey, p. 48, Kingdom Parables.
If Jesus were a Universalist, like the Judeo churches, then there would be no Tares. However, our Lord said there are Tares. Tares among the Wheat are proof of racial distinction. The cursed races of the line of the first murderer, Cain, are the source of all the trouble in the world.
Is Universalism Valid?
There appear to be verses in the Bible that say salvation is for all races regardless of any Covenant, such as Titus 2:11, “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men.” And Luke 24:47, “that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.” And Acts 11:18, “Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.” The judeo-Christian Universalist will be glad to bring these to our attention. However, these Universalists are viewing these verses as if there were no Covenant and pulling them out of their context. They will overlook verses such as Acts 5:31, “Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.” Or, Acts 13:24, “When John had first preached before his coming the baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel.” I want the judeo-Christian to note that it does not say “all the people of the Earth.” All the verses I have emphasized must mean the same thing – if not they will contradict each other.
The Bible doctrine of Election is one that many judeo-Christians hate. The Arminian side of the established church wants to make salvation man’s choice. The Calvinist side of the established church makes it God’s universal choice out of all races on the face of the Earth. This election of God is capricious and random, without rhyme or reason. It makes the righteous Governor of the universe at best the “Cosmic Magician” pulling a rabbit out of His hat, and at worst an autocratic Despot destroying some while saving others.
But this is not what the God of Israel is like. The Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is a righteous and loving Judge and operates according to His Covenant. His decisions are not rash or unreasonable but in total accordance with His marriage covenant with His people. He is not a “universally for all” God, for He plainly declares throughout Scripture, “I am the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” Nowhere in the Bible do we find any other genealogical appellation. God has spoken through His prophet, Isaiah, “For Jacob my servant’s sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me” (Isa. 45:4). How can this plain statement not indicate the racial salvation of a particular people?
So if I have convinced any judeo-Christian out there of the racial truth in this lesson, congratulations, you’re on First. May the Holy Spirit burn this truth into your soul. Amen.
