Scripture Reading: Genesis 3:15:
“And I [the LORD God] 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.”
California has just experienced another crisis. It has just seen its biggest outbreak of wildfires—it broke all past records. Some 750,000 acres were burned, about 9700 homes destroyed with 57,000 more in danger, and 74 and climbing, lives lost, with about 1,100 individuals missing. There could be as many as 300 or more lives lost before the fires are under control.
Here is what the November 10th U.S. News & World Report wrote about this devastating event:
“Throughout the American West, trees already short of nutrients because of crowding are suffering from a four-year-old drought, the worst in 300 years. Bark beetles have attacked the weakened trees across much of the West, killing up to 70 percent of them in some areas. In San Bernardino National Forest, beetles have ravaged half a million acres so far. When fire does break out, the crowding allows flames to leap treetop to treetop in a fast-moving crown fire, as happened in parts of Southern California last week.”
California had a six-year drought at the end of the 1980s. Now it has suffered through another multi-year drought. That state also has a $38 billion deficit, the worst of any state in the United States.
What is happening in California? One disaster after another is striking California. These deadly disasters are repeatedly labeled the “worst ever!” With all the disasters that have struck California the past few years, it’s as if the state is under a CURSE.
“In 1991, wildfires in Oakland, California, destroyed 2,900 structures, and 25 people died from the fires. These fires were the worst ever in California! The state is now struggling with a budget deficit that is the worst ever--that any American state has faced!”
Is God CURSING California? The book of Daniel is a book for the latter day—the time we are living in right now.
Daniel 12:4, 9:
4) “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
9) And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.”
Daniel prophesied to those of us in this end time about other end-time prophecies in the first five books of the Bible.
13) “As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the Lord our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth”
Evil comes upon us because of our sins. Daniel is referring specifically to the curses in Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28. Read about all the blessings God gives if we obey (Deuteronomy 28:1-14) and then notice the CURSES.
15) “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:
16) CURSED shalt thou be in the city, and CURSED shalt thou be in the field.
17) CURSED shall be thy basket and thy store.
18) CURSED shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
19) CURSED shalt thou be when thou comest in, and CURSED shalt thou be when thou goest out.
20) The Lord shall send upon thee CURSING, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken Me.”
Repeatedly, God talks about CURSES. These curses are to come upon Israel, mainly the American and British peoples, because they have forsaken God! God punishes us with “natural” disasters.
6) “Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.”
God says He visits, or punishes, us with “the flame of devouring fire.”
Do you notice what is strange in this picture of the aftermath of the fire in California? The homes are completely destroyed. But why are all those trees not burned-up? Shouldn’t they be burned to a crisp, like the rest of the environment is? Many are still green and alive.
The second photograph will take a short introduction/explanation. Dianne Feinstein’s husband, Richard Blum, got the contract to build a highspeed rail system approximately where all the fires have burned. Coincidence?
And Nancy Pelosi’s husband owns most of stock in that company. Most of the people wouldn’t sell their land so, I guess they thought it would be easier to burn them out.
Richard Blum, husband of United States Senator Dianne Feinstein, heads the Blum Family Partners investment of at least $1 million in Colony American Homes Holdings. Blum is the billionaire founder of the private-equity firm Blum Capital Partners. Colony homes are owned under the umbrella of Colony Capital, one of the largest investment firms in the world. The senator’s disclosure describes Colony American Homes as a “leading owner and provider of high-quality single-family residences for rental across the United States.”
What it doesn’t say is that the rental stock is made up of foreclosed homes purchased by a handful of investor groups and hedge funds in the aftermath of the 2007–08 financial crisis and real estate crash. This is exactly what Richard Hoskins said in his books about one of assets the usury system provides for the lenders. It gives the homes and farms to investors, many of whom are strangers, when they are foreclosed.
Blum is often identified as a quintessential Democratic Party insider, with ties that run the gamut from Jimmy Carter to the Dalai Lama. His private-equity firm manages about $500 million in assets, and the bulk of the fund’s portfolio is dominated by holdings in the world’s largest commercial real estate services firm.
Colony American Homes has not been an especially good landlord: rents are above average, utilities generally aren’t included, and maintenance is poor, at best. Moreover, would-be first-time homeowners in California often find themselves squeezed out by cash-rich corporate buyers like Colony American Homes. Rents are going up and the landlord is nowhere to be seen.
17) “These things I command you, that ye love one another.
18) If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you.
19) If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”
To feel extreme enmity toward: to regard with active hostility
Example: Hates his country's enemies
To have a strong aversion to: find very distasteful
Example: Hate hypocrisy
Synonym of hate: abomination
Antonym of love: abomination, hate, hatred, loathing, rancor.
Hate is an antonym of love. Is a Christian supposed to love or hate evil? Is a Christian supposed to love or hate individuals who hate our God? Is a Christian supposed to love everything and everybody?
According to the Bible, if the land is sold, it will revert to its original owners within 50 years; the jubilee year. So, in actuality, the land will remain with the Anglo-Saxon owner’s family forever.
After our church dinner was over last Sunday, I sat down and read the paper (November 11, 2018). The Cincinnati Enquirer had a series of articles (five to be exact) in the Forum section of the newspaper. As a looked them over, I thought this is something that is unusual. They all are from the same source. It covered three consecutive pages.
The first article was “Leaders must model the law of love” written by the Metropolitan Area Religious Coalition of Cincinnati or MARCC, guest columnists.
The second article was, “Looking at future of Jewish Americans,” written by Gary P. Lola, professor of the American Jewish experience and executive director of the American Jewish Archives at Hebrew Union College.
The third one was, “Hate Against one of us is hate against all of us,” written by Shakila T. Ahmad, chair of the board for the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati.
The fourth one was, “Hateful acts strengthen faith, resolve,” written by Michele R. Godhigh, pastor of Grace African Methodist Episcopal Church in Evanston (Cincinnati suburb).
And the fifth one was, “Our places of worship must open new doors,” written by Henry Zorn, pastor of Lutheran Church of the Resurrection in Anderson Township.
These five articles covered three pages of the Enquirer. Two articles to a page, except for the first article. That is the one that I will cover in this sermon. The one that covered the entire page that was written by unnamed columnists from the Metropolitan Area Religious Coalition of Cincinnati.
After I read all five articles, the thought hit me, “Who is the Metropolitan Area Religious Coalition of Cincinnati?” I went to their website and here is some of what was posted on it:
I must comment on thie last poster. On the right it says that there will be messages of humanity from faith leaders of the Christian, Jewish, and Islamic communities. Messages of humanity??? Notice who the Special Guest Speaker is: Dr. Monica Posey. She is president of Cincinnati State Technical and Community College.
Notice what Richard Hoskins had to say about this situation:
“College educators who had turned out the hundreds of books on racial studies in the 1920s decrying racial inter breeding suddenly found that those who promoted integration and who participated in Klan-bashing receive professorships and tenure. Those who didn’t were passed over.
The reason for this is that college boards of visitors are composed of substantial contributors to the colleges. Corporations are their most substantial contributors. Banks elect most corporate officers. The reason is that most stock is held in bank trust accounts by individuals to legally avoid inheritance taxes. The stock held by banks is registered in the “street name.” “Street name” corporate stock is voted by the banks. The banks in this way elect many if not most corporate directors. These bank-elected directors order the corporations to make grants to colleges. These corporate directors and wealthy stock owners making the grants are usually those elected to the college boards. When elected to a college board, they tell the college whom to hire and whom to fire. In effect, usury banks run America’s colleges.”
And look who I found being represented in this agency—MARCC!
There are many more positions that this organization holds to, like gun control, creating a safe environment for the society after the Ray Tensing trials, etc., that you can find by viewing their website, but I will stop here. This group is against almost everything that we stand for. They are the opposite of what we believe. We are not a part of this blasphemous group.
It is exactly what Dick Hoskins says in his books. Is he right or wrong?
“In the 1930s, the little town of Culpeper had two newspapers, The Star and The Exponent. They lost much circulation to the establishment-supported national papers which carried more and varied news and cost less. Since The Star and The Exponent were restorationist papers, little national advertising came their way. They were forced to merge to make ends meet. The new Star-Exponent did well until the owner died. Then the paper had to be sold to pay the new inheritance taxes. A chain bought the Star-Exponent and it now operates profitably, carries the usual news items, receives national advertising subsidies, and reads like any other establishment paper. This is what has gradually happened to most of the small county and town media in the rest of the nation.”
[A similar thing happened in the city of Cincinnati. It went for three to two newspapers; the Cincinnati Post and the Cincinnati Times-Star (an evening and a morning newspaper). Soon, one newspaper, the Cincinnati Post, the evening newspaper, went out of business. The Cincinnati Time-Star remained, but it had been bought and its name changed to the Cincinnati Enquirer. It was bought and owned by a Freemason—Carl Lindner.]
And now the article that MARCC wrote to the Cincinnati Enquirer was put on their Forum section in last Sunday’s edition. Here is the first one:
“We, Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim and Unitarian-Universalist denominational leaders and members of the Metropolitan Area Religious Coalition of Cincinnati grieve for those wounded and killed at The Tree of Life Synagogue shooting last Saturday.”
[Romanists (the religious beast system), Protestant (who are protesting what?), Jewish (haters of Jesus Christ and His people), Muslim (descendants of Ishmael), Unitarian-Universalist (believe all individuals of the world will be saved), Metropolitan Area Religious Coalition of Cincinnati (inter-faith group) are all grieving together about the shooting in Pittsburgh.
They are a part of the establishment which ever seeks support to continue to rule. They look upon those who obey its edicts with favor. “Those who follow the Laws of God instead may find themselves looked upon as rebels.”
Now, who are we? Are we on the side of the Roman Catholic, the Judeo-Christian Protestant, the Muslim, the church that believes that everyone on the earth will be reconciled and saved or are we on the side of keeping the Laws of God? Which side are we on? Their gods or our LORD?
Richard Hoskins tells in his book exactly what is going on. He writes,
“Most of the ‘the Lawful,’ those who follow the Laws of God and identify their way of life with them, simply call themselves ‘Christians,’ or ‘Christian Identity’ instead of Catholic, Baptist, Presbyterian, etc. The names of the lawless cults are legion.”
Being a true Christian means that you follow what our Savior told us to obey: the commandments, statutes and ordinances of God.
“Western Christianity has always had someone who tried to avoid some restraining part of the Christian Law. Sometimes it was church officials, sometimes the king, sometimes strangers. To survive, the strangers attempted to bribe the Christian rulers and convert individual Christians to ensure their safety. If the strangers succeed, the Christian learns the stranger’s ways and a transition religion is born which follows the teachings of the stranger’s god, still calling itself ‘Christian,’ but which ignores its Laws”—Richard Hoskins, Vigilantes of Christendom, page 398.]
The MARCC article continues: “Furthermore, we acknowledge the other act of violence last week in Jefferson County, Kentucky that involved another house of worship, an African-American Baptist church, followed by the killing of two African-Americans in the parking lot of Kroger. Both involved differences over religious beliefs that were fed by anti-Semitism and racism. Both are hate crimes.
Life is the most precious gift from our Creator. When one life is lost through violence we all mourn.”
[Do the members of this organization mourn when any life is lost through violence? What about a Palestinian who is murdered by an Jewish soldier?
I don’t understand how they can even mention “Anti-Semitism” with the murdering of Blacks, but they say the word, “racism” and mention that it is a “hate crime.” They are trying to get as many people’s mind set to be that any news against the Jewish people and other races is hateful and is a crime. Is it a crime to say that there were not 16 million Jews killed in the concentration camps in World War II; or was it 10 million, or was it 6 million, or was it 4 million, or was it 1.1 million, or was it 250 thousand? Is it wrong to say that the bombing of cities in Germany, like Dresden, which killed ¾ of a million Germans, mainly women and children, was alright?
Do you remember what the YWCA campaign is all about? They say that their 2018 Stand Against Racism will involve the Coalition Against Hate! They are trying to say that if you are a racist, then you are a hater. They don’t define what a racist is.
God is a racist. He loves His people, He hates those of the seed line of the serpent. God was king of the covenant seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and his seed. He was not the king of all the nations of the earth. He fought against His people’s enemies. He is many, many times in the Bible referred to as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and his seed. He is never referred to as being the God of anyone else. He is never referred to as being the God of Abraham and Ishmael, or the God of Abraham, Isaac and Esau. God is a racist. So, YWCA, is our God hateful?]
“We know as a local and global community that violence begets violence. It is an abhorrent act of hatred aimed at the other – the stranger who may be the person who worships differently, whose skin is a different color, is disabled or handicapped, of a different gender or sexual orientation, or from another country who may be escaping persecution or desires to save their child from violence.”
[The stranger who worships differently…does that mean worships a different god? Sure, it does. Was our God wrong when he ordered His people to fatally kill all the Canaanites who were residing in their promised land? What if the person worships a god who has a belief that homosexuality is another life style, while your God says that it is an abomination to Him? Two opposite views. Which one are you to believe?]
“Two women place flowers outside of the Tree of Life Congregation Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh Monday, October 29, 2018, after 11 were killed and six other people were wounded Saturday. Robert Bowers allegedly burst into the Tree of Life Congregation Synagogue and screamed anti-Semitic epithets, as he opened fire on the congregants, law enforcement officials said.”
[Look at the woman on the left…why is she wearing a large coat while having on a short skirt or a pair of shorts? Robert Bowers may have screamed anti-Semitic epithets, but that is not who the Jewish/Ashkenazi/Canaanite victims were. They are descended from Japheth and not from the pure seed line of Shem.]
MARCC continues: “Whatever the difference between us, it expands when we separate ourselves from our sisters and brothers. It is up to all of us to remedy that gulf. The human community lessens this space when more of us get to know those of other races and cultures different from our own.”
[Is that what our God told us to do ... to integrate ourselves with other races and cultures that is different from ours, so we could get to know them better? God knew that this was the wrong thing to do—for we are forbidden to learn the way of the heathen. We don’t separate ourselves from our sisters and brothers, but we separate ourselves from individuals who are not in the covenant that God made with our fathers. They are not our sisters and brothers. Everyone in the world are not sisters and brothers. It is racial.
And if our God was the creator of all peoples, and skin color doesn’t make any difference, why did God make the different races? If they can all inter-marry, what is the sense in having different races in the first place?]
The article continues: “We as leaders take our roles seriously. We know that others follow what we espouse, believe and act upon. This is a demanding and weighty responsibility that we carry. It calls us to be consistently:
We hold ourselves and other civic leaders to the highest standard – the law of love, that is based on non-violence, welcoming, civility, understanding of differences and honor for the basic wonder of humanity. Proclaiming this law together, especially in the face of such violence, makes us stronger people of faith and Americans.”
[They love; all the others who have a different opinion than they, hate. The Romanist, the Judeo-Christian, the Jew, the Muslim are the ones that keep the law of love. They are the ones, in their own opinion, who are the stronger people of faith and are stronger Americans.
How are they stronger people of faith, when they are multi-faith and how are they stronger Americans, when most of their beliefs, if not all, were against what the founding fathers of this country established? How many of the leaders of the beginning of this Protestant nation were Muslim, or Jewish, or Judeo-Christian, or Unitarian or Universalist?]
The article continues: “We are up to the task of leadership because we know that it is based on what holds all humanity together. Without courageous leaders to model this law of love, societies and cultures become tribal, pick up arms, draw weapons and perpetrate violence rather than protect what is dear – the gift of life that all of us have received. We strongly urge, unequivocally, that all leaders from the president to the neighborhood civic leader do the same.”
[This law of love is what holds humanity together? If you don’t keep this law, then you perpetrate violence rather than protect what is dear? Then who are the two seed lines of Genesis, chapter 3, verse 15? The Bible says that God put “enmity” in both seeds. If God put hatred in two seed lines, then how can there be the law of love among all members of the individuals on earth? Are there members of the seed of the serpent in this list of signees of this article?]

Richard Hoskins comments in one of his books that:
“One of today’s transition religions is called Judeo-Christianity. I (Richard Hoskins) know of a Judeo-Christian church which claims to follow the old fundamental basic truths of the Bible. A great many members of that church do.
It was years before I discovered that this outspoken church which professed to go by God’s teaching held few beliefs that were not negotiable. Over the years the beliefs and practices of the church reversed themselves to become the exact opposite of what they had been earlier. They had been changed to accommodate changed political and social conditions which ensured continued tax-exemption.”
[Southern Baptists admit that in the past they were teaching the “devil’s doctrine,” and since 1995 they put that doctrine away and now teach racial reconciliation. Think about that statement for a minute. They say that the taught the “devil’s doctrine” since the time of their inception, but since then, when it was discovered in 1995 that it was the wrong doctrine, they switched. And now they say that they are teaching God’s doctrine!]
“Many ordinary people are ignorant of the difference between Christianity and Judeo-Christianity. They see only Judeo-Christianity’s omnipresence. It’s everywhere. It is almost the only form of Christian religion that is allowed to be widely advertised in Western society today. It is on television, in books, on billboards, and in newspapers. It is the sole repository of recognition and honors dispensed by government. In return for the establishment’s tax exemption it avoids offending the establishment by ignoring Christian Law that condemns those who dispense the honors and tax exemption.”
CHOSEN GOD OR CHOSEN PEOPLE
“How could we say with any certainty that widespread humanism can be found throughout all Christian churches today? Well, consider this. All religions have one thing in common and that is they tend to carry the thought that people can choose their own God. But, this idea is not found throughout the Bible. Jesus lost all of His followers (except the disciples) when He told them that following Him was not like all the other religions of the world in which the people choose their own god. Some people will choose Baal or Moloch as their god, others will choose a totem pole, a rock, Mary, Allah, Mohammed, Buddha, Lilleth or the Lord Matreya. But with Christianity, God chooses the people He will have to follow Him and be His people. All religions of the world are based upon a ‘chosen god’ concept. But real Biblical Christianity, like Hebraism, is based upon a ‘Chosen people’ concept. As Jesus put it, ‘Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you…’”
Thus, it appears that a religious choice by man is split; divided into those who follow the:
“Chosen god” concept of their faith, versus the
Biblical “Chosen of God” concept of Christianity that God affirms in many statements such as this as regards His Chosen, “Israel.”
2)“You only have I known of all the families of the earth; therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.”
6) “For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto Himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.”
Who did God chose? He certainly did not choose all the individuals of the world. Do you believe what was written in Last Sunday’s Forum of the Cincinnati Enquirer? The paper said that the articles were an examination of “how people of faith in Greater Cincinnati are dealing with and responding to recent violent attacks on places of worship. Jewish, Muslim and Christian clergy share their stories of pain, overcoming and unity to provide a snapshot of what it means to worship in a climate of hate and intolerance.”
Since when do Jewish, Muslim and Christians agree on what the Bible says. The Christian’s holy book is the Bible; the Muslim’s holy book is the Koran, and the Jewish holy book in the Talmud. The members of the MARCC have ignored what the Bible says and are teaching the Talmud.
May God have mercy on His people.
Blessed be the LORD God of Israel.
