The Old Man: Dead on Arrival
by Pastor Mark Downey
July 17 and July 24, 2011
“Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed” Romans 6:6.
Question: do you know what is worse than a wicked young man? Answer: a wicked old man! Why? Because he has had a lot more practice. The Bible is about winners and losers. Christianity is about victory. There are two races in Scripture. The first is the White Adamic/Israelite race. The second is the contest in which the White race must cross the finish line. We are a chosen race in a race to obtain a prize. Our race has two movements competing against each other. One is secular and the other is spiritual. There are two different prizes. “Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible” I Cor. 9:25.
From time to time, I get comments from brothers and sisters in Christ that Christian Identity does not preach the Gospels or fundamental teachings of salvation. And that’s usually true, because so many of us came out of the denominations that did fortunately teach us these things. But, we have a new generation that is unschooled in these basic understandings and so it behooves us to review our basic Christian responsibilities from an Identity perspective. So, this sermon is for both young and old and I say that tongue in cheek.
This past week Pastor Pete Peters died (7-7-11). Someone said he died of natural causes at the age of 64. But, I have to wonder who dies of natural causes at that age? In the span of 6000 years, the mortality of mankind keeps shrinking. Nobody lives for hundreds of years anymore. When somebody reaches the ripe old age of 100, they are asked what is the secret of their longevity and there’s never a definitive answer to say what’s what. Nobody ever says the cause of death was the wages of sin. Just weeks before Peters died, I received an email that reported Peters having an emotional breakdown in front of the Branson audience and that he attempted to physically assault someone; where he subsequently went on his radio program to announce that he was taking a sabbatical and that the Lord was humbling him. One of his followers from Florida sent out a message stating that everyone should “pray for the pastor.” I’d like to dedicate this sermon to Pete, because I was one of his supporters for 10 years and I learned a great deal from him. But, something changed in his life and it wasn’t for the better. In his last newsletter there’s a picture of him standing next to an expensive looking piece of shortwave electronic equipment for broadcasting his shows with a cartoon caption with him saying, “With this baby, we’re gonna reach the world with the Word of God.” He looked terribly bloated, sickly and old. I remember one of his sermons years ago that talked about our countenance, our physical appearance and how some old people looked so happy that they were glowing, while others looked like depressed zombies. I think it may have had something to do with our old man that we’re discussing today.
Christian Identity is a movement that has discovered who’s who. Other movements, such as ‘White Nationalism’, don’t know who or what is in the race and don’t care. Which is why the mature racialist Christian will heed the warning: “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers” II Cor. 6:14. We could say, “What fellowship hath winners with losers?” The ‘Big Tent’ philosophy of White Nationalism includes pagans, atheists, agnostics, universalists, judeo-Christians, catholics, non-Whites who look White and the lunatic fringe. The inclusionary nature of this kind of body politic is doomed to fail from the beginning, because it is based on the presumption that the unity of man will save the race and racialist Christians will put their God and His Word on the back burner. At best, this is wishful thinking and at worst an insulting delusion.
The Bible calls this kind of thinking ‘the old man’. “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature [race] more than the Creator?” Romans 1:25. The creature here is the serpentine nature of man or more accurately termed as the real satan of Scripture. When men give anything or anyone the power to do great things, then that is equal to worshipping that thing or person. The old man is self worship. Self worship is adversarial to God Almighty. The Hebrew word (not name) ‘satan’, means adversary; the Greek word ‘devil’ means false accuser, slanderer, or liar. Having these correct translations, these words are used to prove the personality of man’s great adversary and God’s great slanderer in the history of the White race, namely, SIN, whether considered abstractly as a principle, or finding expression through a person, an institution or the evil world as a whole.
Within the confines of our earth, we are informed of what constitutes all evil: “Lust of the flesh, lusts of the eyes and the pride of life” (I John 2:16). These three basic elements are what tempted both Eve and Jesus. The old man is old because of his great antiquity, for sin is as old as the Garden of Eden. He’s the oldest man in the world. Let us reason together that this 6000 year old man is not a literal person any more than a 6000 year old supernatural serpent. The reality, according to David’s confession, is that we are shaped in iniquity and conceived in sin (Ps. 51:5); but the old man existed in the world ages before we were born and was propagated to us by our parents, who themselves had received it in lineal succession from Adam. The concept of the old sin nature is found in Romans 7:17, “Sin that dwelleth in me.” It’s also called “the flesh” and is the source of all personal sins. Adam wasn’t created with an old sin nature, but God gave him one the moment he disobeyed a divine command.
Adam became a fleshly mortal and subsequently passed on this genetic trait to his progeny. Therefore, every member of the White race receives the old man gene. “Therefore, as through one man’s offense [Adam’s] judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act [Jesus Christ’s] the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous” Romans 5:18-19. “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive” I Cor. 15:22. When Adam sinned, the consequences for him and the rest of Adamkind were both physical death and spiritual death, meaning spiritual separation from God. We all inherited the old man from Adam and are spiritually separated from God at birth. Everybody knows that sooner or later we come to the end of our race at the finish line and arrive at a natural physical death. The prize is not going to the proverbial “home” in heaven. We may or may not have won the contest.
Did you know there is another type of death? The Bible describes it as the death of the old man, which everyone must experience through the God given faith in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, either in this life for believers or in the next life for unbelievers, before they can enter the Kingdom of God (on earth). If the old man is dead on arrival, when the race is over, we have won. “So when… this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, death is swallowed up in victory” I Cor. 15:54.
This is not pie in the sky theology, because we can see victory before the race is over. We can gain such a lead by recognizing our leadership. Our leaders give us the winning plan. The plan comes from He who is ahead of everyone else in the race. Christ is the head of the church (those who are called to start their engines) and He is the Savior of the body (Eph. 5:23). “Where there is no vision, the people perish; but he that keepeth the law, happy is he” Prov. 29:18. A vision is a plan with a purpose. “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose” Romans 5:28. Let us understand what the old man represents and why it’s important to experience God’s plan for his death. An autopsy of the old man reveals an obvious sin nature of carnality and lust i.e. the flesh of our five senses.
But, there is a multitude of other failures, which could be recorded as the ‘cause of death’. God absolutely detests the self-righteousness of man. Why? Because it stops us from repenting and accepting the true righteousness of God. “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?” Jer. 17:9. The old man doesn’t have a clue about his attitude until an adjustment is made from above. Continuing, “I the Lord search the heart, I try their reigns [thoughts], even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings” (v.10). It could be said that the root of all sin is pride and that the old man is the epitome of a proud heart. “Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall” Prov. 16:18. There is nothing more loathsome and disgusting than a depraved elder spending his whole lifetime feeding his imagination, recollecting the justification of past sins. How utterly hardened, impenitent, obstinate and arrogant, for the most part, is old age.
Thus, the old man is described as, “Corrupt according to the deceitful lusts” (Eph.4:22). Am I wrong to suggest that the old man is the vilest of all vile beings and rotten to the very core, not having one right thought or emotion, not one right principle or precept and that there is no soundness in his body, mind or spirit? I believe the strong language of Scripture of what we are by nature and can come to no other conclusion than that this old man is the greatest plague a child of God can have. I believe that all of our sorrows, trials and tribulations cannot be compared with the sorrows, mischief and mayhem caused by the plotting, contriving and workings of this wicked old man in all the deceitful lusts that are in the world by means of which he has been distracting us from the straight and narrow path of holiness.
You can see how it leads the blind, hardens the heart, perverts judgment, distorts affections, and strangles the life of God from the soul, until one scarcely knows what they are; full of themselves, burdened with the guilt of regret and the bondage of fear. “Every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin; and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death” James 1:14-15. The old man reaps what he sows. James has an additional thought about those who hear the Word of God, but never do anything about it. “He is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass. For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was” James 1:23-24. Can you see the old man in the mirror?
Would you like to change that look into something better? As long as we are under the power and dominion of the old man there is no countenance of peace, no shining light of glory, no sweet counsel, no blessed revivals and no comforting visitations of God’s presence. But there is a divine remedy for restoration. “For by the sadness of the face the heart is made better” Eccl. 7:3. Please note the apostle’s words “concerning the former conversation” of the old man that is “put off” (in Eph. 4:22), meaning that the way in which we formerly lived and acted is fully renounced. How? “Be renewed in the spirit of your mind” (v. 23). So we put off the old man and “Put on the new man” (v. 24) modeled after the righteousness of God. How? By, “Putting away lying” (v. 25). Question: what is another word for liar? Answer: devil. “Neither give place to the devil” (v. 27).
The lie of the old man is that he not responsible for his own sins. This was the blame game going on back in the beginning which brought forth death to all future generations of the White race. God’s Law states, “Thou shalt not kill” (Ex. 20:13). The divine judgment for this sin is to execute the murderer: “And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to death” Lev. 24:17. The old man was a murderer from the beginning and brought sin into the world. “The wages of sin is death” Romans 6:23. So this old man is essentially the cause of death and the effect of sin.
“Men and brethren, what shall we do?” Acts 2:37. Send him to a re-education camp to repent? An overhaul? A makeover? No. God has only one final solution for that wicked one of the ages and that is to crucify him. Yes, that’s right! He kills and destroys the old man, whose name is legion, because our sin nature comes under so many guises. It has been so widespread over the ages that it has almost complete control over our race and the soul of our nation. Its despicable nature is almost indistinguishable. Imagine, for a moment, that you recognize the image in the mirror or someone suggests to you that the only way to get your life back and to cease the fear and loathing, which plagues America, is to kill the old man.
The old man defiles that which is intended to be holy. “And ye shall be holy unto Me; for I the Lord am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be Mine” Lev. 20:26. Our physical bodies were meant to be vessels of honor, a repository or dwelling place for God to be amongst His people and advance His Kingdom upon the earth. Jesus is the savior of our physical body AND the body politic of the White race. America was founded as a Christian nation, but cheerleaders for the old man have displaced our manifest destiny. We have no one to blame but ourselves for the decline of Western civilization.
Many churches with good intentions (well, maybe not so good) are just waiting for God to take them away to another world, far far away from earth. But this is not the mindset that God desires at all. “Be ye not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind” Romans 12:2. God is waiting for us to do something about the world we live in. God Himself gives us the plan whereby we kill the old conformist in this world.
Long ago when our ancestors were told to take dominion of the earth, there arose another competitor, or adversary (satan) if you will, that did not conform to God’s plan. “Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law), how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?” Romans 7:1. This verse is addressing the soul of a Christian, whereby the law of sin and death has dominion over a Christian, notwithstanding a very crucial proviso. The Christian must die to self (or the old man within) who opposes God. If the Christian crucifies himself (which will be explained in a moment) i.e. dies to self, then the law of sin and death no longer has dominion over us. He is freed from this law to live his life in accord with God’s Spirit.
What then is the procedure for crucifying the old man? Jesus said, “If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me” Mt. 16:24. The first step then is to admit our old way of life is going to be replaced with something new at the Cross of Christ. The next verse quickly follows up with the idea that it’s something more than just believing. It’s important that you understand that just believing in Christ only makes you a believing sinner. If there was ever a memorized mantra taken out of context, it is John 3:16 i.e. “Whomsoever believeth in Him should not perish…” One can profess belief all they like, but it merely makes one a professing sinner. We must read, believe and obey the whole counsel of God.
“Whosoever will lose his life for My sake shall find it” Mt.16:25. You can believe you’re going to lose something or you can actually do it. How do we do it? “We are debtors, not to the flesh [the old man-sin-satan], to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die; but if ye through the Spirit do mortify [kill] the deeds of the body, ye shall live” Romans 8:12-13. This call to action is specified in Col. 3:5-9, “Mortify therefore your members [your five senses] which are upon the earth [I John 2:16]; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry; For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience; In which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them. But now ye also put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of the mouth. Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds.”
There’s some truth to the story of the race between the tortoise and the hare. In order to win the checkered flag, it isn’t being a speed demon, but rather staying on course to the finish line. It’s having faith and confidence in moving forward in the right direction. A movement of God follows directions. “Enter ye in at the straight gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat” Mt. 7:13. Bad leadership leads those who don’t have eyes to see; crashing into a ditch, crashing into the walls of their mind’s eye. They may have the appearance of largesse, adoration and momentum, but they are losers.
“I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me” Gal. 2:20. This verse does not tell us to crucify ourselves. It says we have been crucified. What a miserable wretch it is, who tries to do what has already been done. When Christ died, it was my death also. His was a death to sin. Likewise, it is the Christian’s death to sin. The blood was shed for what I had done (sins). The Cross crucified the sinner with Christ. If we try to crucify ourselves, then we say that we can do it ourselves and dismiss the work of Christ. It is pride to say I will do it myself. That’s like a car saying I will move without gas.
Our only deliverance from our old man in Adam came by the blood on the Cross. “How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit, offers Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works, to serve the Living God” Heb. 9:14. “Without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness” Heb. 9:22. By believing in what was done for us, we do what is required of us. “For this is the blood of My covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins” Mt. 26:28. But, most of churchianity cannot see how that blood is applied to our lives. The absurdity is a preacher holding up a bar of soap and telling their congregation that if they want to clean their hands, they’ll have to believe on the bar of soap. We know that you have to apply the soap with water and scrubbing in order to get your hands clean. And so it is with the blood. It has to be applied to our lives.
I know this balance between faith and works can be confusing if key elements are left out of the picture. This is mostly the fault of the modern judeo-Christian churches that only want the sheeple to feel good about themselves with a steady diet of milk (of the Word). “But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?” James 2:20.
The works which we are commanded to do are summed up in three words informatively consolidated in Romans 6:6, 11, and 13. But before we read these verses, we must emphasize that we become overcomers through Christ who has already overcome. It is Christ who lives in us. “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” I Cor. 3:16. And here’s the warning for every White person who doesn’t quite grasp the gravity of life and death, “If any man defileth the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are” (v. 17). The old man must either die now in this life or he will perish at the Judgment Seat of Christ and lose his inheritance, which is his reward, i.e. our glorified bodies of eternal life. When Christ was raised from the dead, He was the prototype for resurrection, which we have also. We are active responders to God’s truth and power in us. We were never created to be initiators or gods. Therefore, we must move away from the tree of knowledge of good and evil with its forbidden fruit manifested in the old man and move towards the tree of life with its fruits of the Holy Spirit. There can be no resurrection without death.
When Paul said he had been crucified, he stated it as a life-changing past event. He expressed a true resurrection in his own lifetime saying, “He [Jesus] died for all [of the White race], that those who should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again” II Cor. 5:15. What does this mean practically? Some people like to invent doctrines which point to ungodly extremes in order to satisfy their secular rules of life under the guise of religion. This is living for ‘self’ in order to control the flesh. Can you control a bull in a china shop without breaking one dish? This is how the old man deals with the impossible. The flesh cannot be controlled, it must be crucified!
Looking at the crucifixion, our Lord’s hands (wrists) and feet were nailed to the Cross. What about your hands and feet? Are they controlling you? Do you go to such extremes for the love of God that God hates what you do? “Hands that shed innocent blood” or “Feet that be swift in running to mischief” Prov. 6:17, 18. Do your physical five senses cause you to do things you know you shouldn’t? Mt. 5:28 goes to the source of adultery by saying, “Whosoever looketh upon a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” Let the dirty old man in your head who has never behaved in this manner cast the first stone. For the Law puts an adulterer to death.
We are born with the sin nature from Adam’s fall and adulterate God’s Word/Law through the self justification of strange gods causing sin. These ornaments of a wicked imagination are the blindfold of understanding the root of the dilemma. Therefore, it behooves each and every one of us to remove the log from our own eyes before we seize upon a brother’s minute sliver. Take care of your own filthy rags… take up your own cross.
Crucifying the flesh is not just immersing your body in water, observing dates on the calendar, pronouncing sacred names, waking up early to attend church or any other number of traditional hoops someone makes you jump through, which elevates Babel/confusion and spoils the Kingdom. There is no magic in words or rituals, only the illusion of power. Jer. 16:12 speaks about this issue going from bad to worse, “And ye have done worse than your fathers; for behold, ye walk every one after the imagination of his evil heart, that they may not hearken unto Me. Therefore will I cast you out of this land.” The reason for God’s wrath is that they worshipped themselves. Today, a great number of our people are in la la land. There are no more geographic areas to cast us off to, but “Because they received not the love of the truth… God shall send them strong delusion” II Thes. 2:10-11. The preceding verses, in some Bibles like the KJV, are a testimony to the delusional sin nature of evil found vicariously in the scapegoat god “Satan”, a so called supernatural fallen angel, whereby the fallen sin nature of man is subordinated or even ridiculed by a priesthood of fear mongers. The old man gets a free pass and spiritual maturity is stunted.
By way of review, so far we have established that the old man to which Scripture points to negatively is none other than self and all of the hyphenated character defects that emanate from it: self-righteousness, self-centered, self-indulgent, self-aggrandizement, self-justification, self-will and on and on it goes.
I John 2:16 synthesizes it down to three attributes of the old man of all that is in the world: “The lust of the flesh, lusts of the eyes and the pride of life” all of which constitutes the carnal nature of mankind and becomes adversarial to God. James 4:4 says, “You adulterous people, do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” That’s a pretty strong indictment and all the more reason why this old man must be eliminated.
We all have inherited this genetic trait from the first White man, Adam. But there is an antidote to supernaturally save us from eternal death as Jesus Christ promises us the immortality that Adam had lost. It shall come to pass that, “Death is swallowed up in victory.” Ironically, this happens when we kill the old man, when we kill our conformity to this world. Indeed, we are crucified with Christ – when Christ died, it was our death also, it was the death of the old man and we are cleansed of our sins when His blood is applied to our lives. We may die the physical death, but we are resurrected unto life eternal.
Christ died for the White race. The conflict of the ages has been between the flesh and the spirit. The flesh or carnal nature of man can’t be controlled or tamed, it must be crucified; we take up our own cross and seek the Spirit of God, and God will help us overcome the world spiritually. “But the natural [carnal] man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” I Cor. 2:14.
The ‘mystery of iniquity’ is about man making himself God, not angels! Nowhere in the Bible, no matter how hard judeo-catholic mistranslations try, are we told that angels are to crucify the flesh of the old man. What is being revealed to you right now, if you don’t already know, is that “Them that perish” are the adversaries of God (not an omnipotent “Satan”) who have “All deceivableness of unrighteousness.” Unrighteousness, in the Bible, is always placed at the doorsteps of mankind, not the invisible realm of make-believe devil-gods.
When men want to be indulged with the liberty to walk in forbidden ways and embrace questionable doctrines, at the expense of despising and stomping upon the precepts of the gospel message, then their teachings make God’s Word of none effect. Paul uses the example of a woman who has a husband to illustrate the law of sin and death. “For the woman which has a husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband” Romans 7:2. The woman is bound by the law to her husband as long as he is alive. When her husband dies, she is loosed from the law of her husband. This occurs in two ways: either by a natural physical death or a spiritual death. Conversely, the death of the husband’s old man is all the more reason to be bound to him for a happy marriage. However, a spiritual death is the old man not only being alive and well, but claiming what belongs to God i.e. righteousness.
The comparison can be made with God’s divorce from Israel. It’s not that the Israelites became an extinct race, but rather were whoring after strange gods and thus spiritually dead to the sin of adultery. The husband or wife who is spiritually dead is bound to the law of sin and death – the wages of sin is death. A very real life consideration of an adulterous wife is being complicit with her husband’s active pursuit of sin. Only the rabbinical theology of a sexist priestcraft would demand that a righteous Christian wife be bound to the sins of an adulterating husband. Spouses do not have to tolerate conformity to the world or the abuse of their old man (pun intended). It is illogical and contrary to Scripture to have the expectation that Christians are to be torn between obeying God and a marriage partner. “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways” James 1:8. Those who still insist the wife is an adulteress after a biblical divorce and has remarried are satanic false accusers denying the veracity of God’s Law. These liars remain married to the old sin nature no matter how pious or convincing their lies sound. The Pharisees practiced the same kind of legalisms which led to the murder of Christ.
The false accuser, satan or the old man (take your pick) will have no part in the Marriage Supper of the Lamb i.e. the reunion of Christ with His bride Israel. In fact, we’re told who will not be allowed into the Kingdom: “Dogs, sorcerers, whoremongers, murderers, idolaters and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie” Rev. 22:15. Every Christian Israelite should be eager to enter in through the gates into the city of God that they may have a right to the tree of life (Rev. 22:14). “All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes, but the Lord weigheth the spirits. Commit thy works unto the Lord and thy thoughts shall be established” Prov. 16:2-3. You are what you’re committed to. If you are committed to a belief in Christ, you’re a Christian. If you are committed to a belief in “Satan”…
By analogy, the old man is to personal sins as a root is to its fruit. The root produces fruit; fruit comes from a root. Personal sins come from the old man. The point is that sins have a source. Following our analogy, God’s plan will unfold for the Christian to see how he never has to sin again. If you wanted to destroy the fruit of a tree, you can either pick the fruit and throw it away or you can kill its root. Suppose that you decide to destroy personal sins in your life. There are at least two ways. First, you confess your sins, receiving forgiveness and be restored to fellowship. However, one may choose to sin again sometime in the future. Or second, you can apply the concept found in the language of Romans 6:6, 11, and 13 as the only divine tool given to the believer to permanently destroy the root of the old sin nature.
If you choose to use the following three verses (Romans 6:6, 11, 13), you will be considered dead to sins and never have to sin again… as long as you live for Christ. “Knowing this, that our old man is [was] crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin” (v. 6); Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord” (v. 11); “Neither yield ye members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin; but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God” (v.13). Knowing, reckoning and yielding are the only honorable means by which we can overcome sin. If you are struggling with sin, you need Romans 6:6, 11 and 13, not an emotional ‘Pentecostal’ experience or supernatural extravaganza. If you think you’ve applied know-reckon-yield and still don’t have victory, return to these three steps and determine if you failed to apply them correctly. “Greater is He [God] that is in you, than he [the old man] that is in the world… Hereby we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error” I John 4:4, 6.
Do not miss the point that Jesus was not alone on His Cross. Every believer for the last 2000 years was hanging on that Cross with Him. The fact that God sees our old man as dead is the foundation for victory over sins, because this enables the believer to render his sins inoperable at their source. God sees every old man as a dead root that can no longer produce fruit. The word ‘reckon’ means to think the same way God thinks. If He says our old man is dead, then consider your old man dead, because God says it’s dead. There can be no victory if you do not reckon this to be true. ‘Yielding’ means to present your members or parts of the physical body to God for good.
We all have a twofold personality: the old man of the flesh and the new man of the Spirit. We can most clearly see the character of the new man with the fruits of the Spirit “Against such there is no law” (Gal. 5:22-23). The night before Jesus was killed, He told His disciples, “I am the true vine, and My Father is the husbandman. Every branch in Me that beareth not fruit He taketh away… I am the vine, ye are the branches; He that abideth in Me and I in Him, the same bringeth forth much fruit; for without Me ye can do nothing” John 15:1, 2, 5. Did you White Nationalists get that last part? You can’t do anything without the Root of David, Jesus Christ. In fact, your old man condemns your movement from moving. Fruit is produce. Bearing fruit is productive. Being productive motivates movement. Moving in the right direction gets us into the winner’s circle.
“If a man abide not in Me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the lake of fire, and they are burned” John 15:6. There were two trees in the Garden of Eden. One represented life and the other death. They are still with us today. The old man is stuck in his knowledge of good and evil as long as he ignores the good news that he has a tool to extract himself from the ditch of depravity. This tree is insidious because man knows how to manipulate good and evil and convince himself and others that good is evil and evil is good. Adam and Eve believed that the forbidden fruit would not bring death as God promised. They were wrong. And people believe the same way today… deceiving themselves.
Reckoning and yielding produces suffering, in that there will be “Much tribulation [in order to] enter into the Kingdom of God” (Acts 14:22). There is no spiritual anesthesia for putting the old man to death. And he doesn’t die easily. He struggles to stay alive, and it is this warfare that causes the believer to suffer. But he suffers because something is being done right, being done God’s way. The wonderful fireworks of God’s plan is the spontaneous combustion of the old sin nature and the igniting joy of victory the moment we understand that “We are more than conquerors through Him that loved us” (Romans 8:37). The old is being replaced with the new. The baptism of fire is removing the dross from the gold. Holiness means purity. The Holy Spirit is having the mindset to separate ourselves from evil.
Even though the flesh remains the dominant nature when a Christian is first called and chosen, it will become dormant when our spiritual nature takes priority through repentance. This new spirit nature is what makes seeking the Kingdom of God a priority. And once the priority is met, we are given the fantastic promise that, “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God” (I John 3:9).
Unfortunately, the judaized establishment churches have obfuscated the process of divine calling with a meaningless cliché in being “born again” as if this pious altar call of choosing God is the end of the matter and all of the sudden they are “saved”. This is nothing short of the old man wrapping himself in the knowledge of good without doing anything good. Jesus did not tell Nicodemus, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God” (John 3:3). The translators erred greatly. Jesus did not use the word ‘again’, Nicodemus did. Jesus used the Greek word ‘anothen’ (Strong’s G509) and means from above, from the first or from the origin. It’s the same word found in John 3:31, “He that cometh from above is above all.” The word ‘born’ in John 3:3 is ‘gennoa’ and means begat or begotten rather than birth. It is crucial to know when this begetting happens. The Greek word for ‘born’ here does not indicate a future tense. Jesus was teaching Nicodemus that his race emanated from an original seed i.e. “For his seed remaineth in him.”
Had John 3:3 been properly translated, it would have read, “…except a man be conceived from above…”, which meant that unless a person is begotten of the seedline or race that comes from the original Creation or to be even more specifically designated as, “Israel is My son, even My firstborn” (Ex.4:22), then that person does not have the faculties to perceive what the Kingdom of God is all about. We have a choice to believe that any race or hybrid can see the Kingdom of God (but more likely the brotherhood of man) or we can believe the exclusionary limits Jesus sets forth in John 3:5, “Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God.” It is not just being begotten of water, which is the natural biological process of conception, but also the incorporation of the Spirit. To determine who this applies to, the New Testament Christian is forced to read the Old Testament and learn that the ‘breath of life’, which is the Spirit of God was only given to one man and that was Adam (Gen. 2:7).
Now for a short history lesson. Abraham and Sarah were from the Adamic seed. Prior to God regenerating their ability to conceive a child, there was race mixing and a pollution of God’s plan between the other races (that existed before Adam) and the descendants of Adam. The mongrelization got so bad that God brought forth the Flood and spared only Noah and his unmixed i.e. racially pure family in that particular part of the world. Later, the children of Israel were to destroy the Canaanites who were a type and shadow of the old man. Likewise, we cannot enter the Promised Land today without first destroying that which tempts us to sin. There is no doubt that the life in Sarah’s womb was endowed with the Spirit of God. If Ex. 4:22 is still fresh in your mind, God said, “Israel My firstborn.” If this is true, then who are their offspring? For Israel to be the son, who then is the father? Doesn’t Israel originate from God, if Israel is His son?
Nowhere in the Bible do we find the concept of universalism where God is the father of all races. Neither God nor man can be called a father until they have begotten offspring. There is absolutely no Bible verse that condones a spiritual birth later in life. “Look unto Abraham your father and unto Sarah that bare you; for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him” Is. 51:2. Only through Abraham’s seed would our race receive the covenants and promises of God in order to comprehend the Kingdom of God. “He saith not, and to seeds, as of many; but as of one” Gal. 3:16.
God has given our race “The earnest [down payment] of the Spirit in our hearts” II Cor. 1:22. Keep in mind, the war has always been between our flesh and our spirit. Our race has always been plagued with the strange flesh of mongrelization. “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” I Cor. 2:14. I believe the natural man can be several things. It can be the mongrel (i.e. non-Israelite) or it can be the Israelite who has become mongrelized, which this study has identified as the old man, because it acts like the rest of the world.
If our lives are utterly driven by secular values and empirical evidence, then those of us who, “Trust in the Lord with all our heart, and lean not into our own understanding” would appear to be regarded by the unbeliever as fools. Conversely, to the spiritually minded believer, a secularist seems to be naively missing the whole meaning of their existence. Indeed, the natural man centers his life on being scientific and intellectually proud. However, no amount of intellectual science will ever give our race the values of what our potential is, which can only come from our Creator. In fact, the grandiose architects of the universe would exalt their throne above the stars of God, cursing the integrity of our race in the process. When Paul told Timothy to “Avoid profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called” (I Tim. 6:20), he was warning his brethren about the adversaries of God, having their so called knowledge applied to our lives. The old man’s forte is convoluting good and evil and mocking the greatest gift ever given to our race… the blood of Christ. Everything our race could ever want or need for quality living has been promised to us, if we first seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness (Mt. 6:33). That means all other forms of government are counterproductive to the well being of our race.
“The Kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field” Mt. 13:24. The parable is telling us that God created a pure race in the world. Then we are told than an enemy came and planted bad seed, which resembled the good seed, but it was polluted. “An enemy hath done this” Mt. 13:28. The Big Lie is that we are all mongrelized “bad seed” today. That can only mean that there are no “children of the Kingdom” i.e. “good seed” left in the world. The enemy that promotes the idea of racial pollution and that there is no such thing as a pure race anymore IS A LIAR. It is an affront to the God of ‘kind after kind’. Who are you to believe? The White preservationists of Christian Identity or the godless permutations of mongrelization? Or perhaps the simple observation of nature, that Cardinals do not mate with Blue Jays.
But even as Paul lamented, the carnal are, “As unto babes in Christ.” From the time of our conception we have the genetic code of God expressed in the old man and the new man. The circuitry of the new man regenerates the status of Adam with God before his Fall. When we overcome the carnal sin nature through Christ, the old man begins to short circuit. The constant theme throughout Scripture is the cleansing and purification of one race for the ultimate and perfect government of God. “That ye which have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of His glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel” Mt. 19:28. In other words, we take care of our own kindred. In Judaism’s utopia, every jew will have 2,000 non-jewish slaves. In the Kingdom of God I don’t think we’ll be bothered by non-Israelites, because they’ll be gone.
Knowing that racial purity is a prerequisite for transcending the Fall of Adam, we can then move forward with a new vision of Paradise. Our race is to “Walk in the newness of life” (Romans 6:4), meaning that we give up the old way of life in both false doctrines and bad behavior i.e. anything alien that quenches (exterminates) the Spirit.
Any movement representing our race that has a prevarication with mixed blood is not of our God. It brings the disease of disobedience into our camp and threatens our existence. Christian Identity is helping our kindred to understand that the real enemy and threat to our survival is sin. Some of our kinfolk may resent being told that their manner of life is a death sentence and that they actually have the potential to change the things they are so opposed to by changing themselves. Oh, how we refuse to say, “Lord let it begin with me.” The preeminent message of our Kinsman Redeemer was and still is repentance. Many Christians go through the motions of repentance and baptism, but they don’t follow through with the commitment and application. “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” II Peter 3:9.
There will be some White people who don’t think or won’t believe that the reward of a glorified body of everlasting life in a perfected society on earth, as it is in Heaven, is a big deal. Not, that is, until it’s too late. But, what does it cost anybody? It is the free gift of God (Romans 5:15). For those who proudly stand with the old man and have their own agendas, consider this sincere exhortation from God’s Word: “For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance, but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth” Mt. 25:29-30. If the old man and his cronies do not want to live in the Kingdom of God, an all-White society that honors their Creator, then they may be given a one-way ticket to India or any other mongrelized arm pit of the third world and practice the sum of their own wisdom.
They can reflect on the bet they wagered to tolerate miniscule portions of mongrelization, to propagate a multi-faith movement and to obey man rather than God… and lost. The winners may now claim their prize, but time is of the essence. “For we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection” Romans 6:5. The Bible is clear that He died on the Cross for all White people. “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. But each one in his own order” I Cor. 15:22-23. Jesus Christ has already paid the price for our redemption, but all of our people have not yet received it. Our Lord has already earned it for us, either in this life or the next, in God’s time and in His order.
Under the New Covenant, the mind of man is no longer in opposition to the mind of God for the two minds can now become one, functioning in full agreement as it was in the beginning. An open or closed mind is the rudder of destiny. No amount of law can change a rebellious heart that is motivated by fear and a lack of love or faith. As long as the old man has a mentality locked in past resentments, the mind of Christ can never be instilled in him. However, the Law of God has now been internalized and written in our hearts instead of being imposed externally against our carnal nature. This is the New Covenant.
Our race is thus reinstated as heirs of the promise and eventually “Every knee will bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father” (Phil. 2:10-11). There will be no unbelievers in that day because every shred of mongrel influence will have been burned to a crisp through the personal revelation of Jesus Christ. The old man will be dead and those of us who are perfect in our generations will be blessed with the Tree of Life and the righteousness of God. It will be fulfilled of us that, “You are the sons of the living God” (Hosea 1:10). This message is by no means exhaustive, but it should help launch your walk with Christ and propel you to the Cross where victory awaits your claim. “Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my thoughts; And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting” Ps. 139:23-24.
I’m not a poet, but every now and then I get inspired and jot down some rhyming lines. This poem is entitled ‘Crucify Me’ and will conclude this message.
Crucify the old man who once was me,
Crucify the old man so that I may be free.
Crucify the old boss,
Nail him to the Cross.
Death to the old man in my head,
Lord, make sure he’s really dead.
Kill him, who shouts profanity and spit,
As the child of God lowers him into the pit.
Show no mercy my kin,
For the old man’s name is sin.
Crucify the old man, its God’s plan,
Begotten from above, long live the new man.
