Repentance You Can Count On

Scripture Reading:  Matthew 4:12-17

When Jesus launched His ministry, in what would become a three year exhortation to our race exclusively, the first thing He declared was repentance.  Of all the things He could have said as the opening salvo (because it was spiritual warfare), He choose something the people really didn't want to hear, even though it had a lot to do with deliverance.  They envisioned a Deliverer who would come to destroy the Romans.  Their Great White Hope would have said, “Come follow me, and we shall slice the Legions to ribbons.”  I hope you got the gist of the title i.e. the similarity between repentance and change.  When America's first black dictator made the campaign promise for “change you can count on,” the voters didn't think he meant a Marxist change agent who was seriously going to instigate the redistribution of wealth by changing the very concept of American law to a plethora of executive orders and a pathway to antichrist totalitarianism.  Obama cares?  Since 2009 there has been a trance formation of America violating Deut. 17:15.  It's a negro world (an Obamanation) brought to you courtesy of the White man's sins.  The success of multicultural hegemony has literally put the mutts in charge; they have become the head, and we have become the tail.  This major invasive surgery on the body politic has been an exquisite operation.  Almost insurmountable in correcting the capsized ship of state; a ship that only leaks from the top.  If you think black churches preach repentance, you're dreaming the same dream as M.L. King, which has become the White man's nightmare.  If you think catholics are going to repent of their Pope shaking hands with Obama this week (3-27-14), then we'll have to reinvent the meaning of repentance. 

But, there is a glimmer of hope.  And I mean more than just a cliché of the darkest hour  just before the dawn.  “The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus” Phil. 4:7.  Our predicament in life depends on our perspective.  Is the glass half full or half empty?  If you don't understand how something can rise from the lowest ebb of despair to the highest pinnacle of optimism permeating reality, then you need to change. 

We've been hearing this megaphone for several decades announcing that in so many years the White race will be outnumbered by non-Whites.  Every year the ratio gets closer to a 50:50 mix and our people get this uneasy feeling, maybe even a cringing fear where your world is now infested with flared nostrils, nappy craniums and sticky fingers.  The browning of America is White genocide and it's so affordable (said sarcastically); “after all, Whites don't have it too bad.”

Why should we count on repentance?  Why repent; what's it going to do for us?  Repentance, like salvation, has been catered to a pampered, deracinated church as a personalized individual doctrine, rather than a nation-race.  The Obama soundbyte: “change you can count on” was a collective promise for black supremacy and White oppression.  A green light for 'let the knockout games begin!'  And sure enough, they're drunk with power and getting away with murder.   That's the judaized god of secular humanism changing good to evil and evil to good.  They serve their own interests.  Likewise, White Christian America can promote “repentance you can count on,” but from a Christian Identity perspective; it is a call for divine intervention to save true Israel.

It is not changing things to suit one's self, but changing self to suit God.  We oftentimes change things thinking it's God's will, when in reality it's just self righteousness.  To say personal repentance must come before national repentance is as silly as arguing which came first the chicken or the egg.  What good is an unrepentant national government with repentant sinners?  Or what good is a repentant national government with unrepentant sinners.  Both must function for a Christian body politic to operate.  “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn” Prov. 29:2.  As we'll see, there's a connection between repentance and mourning.  You can count on repentance to remove wickedness in high places, to remove the alien stranger from our land.

I was reading an article in the America's Promise newsletter (for March 2014) with the title 'Israel has Changed the World' predicated on Acts 1:8, “and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”  'Uttermost' was in bold letters as if to suggest it meant every mud hut village on the planet.  If we investigate beyond the inept rendering of the Masoretic KJV text, a better translation is found in the Christogenea N.T. to wit, “unto the end of the earth.”  The context of this word 'end' or phrase 'end of the earth' was often used to denote the other end, the western extremity of the Greco-Roman world.  In fact, William Finck translates Romans 10:18 where Paul wrote, “But I say, have they not heard?  Yea, rather. 'into all the land went out their voice, and to the western extremities of the habitable world their words.'”  He [Paul] goes on to say, “The children of Israel were to be scattered and removed unto “all the ends of the earth” is a matter of Biblical prophecy.  That the Gospel was to be brought to “the end of the earth” is only an indication that all of scattered Israel would be brought the Gospel from abroad.”

To the universalist mindset, it is utterly amazing how missionaries effected the world.  To my mind it was and is tragic.  The AP newsletter found “a significant statistical link between democracy and Protestantism” and turned to this guy who spent 14 years researching it with a half million dollar grant.  Three things produce a disagreeable odor here: 1. democracy is rule of the mob and unchristian, 2. Protestantism is not Christian Identity and resembles Baal worship more than Christianity, and 3. who would finance something like this other than jewish interests?  The article then goes on gushing about how White missionaries helped birth modern day India and makes this astounding statement: “The missionaries actually Christianized Hinduism... They fulfilled the admonition to go to the uttermost parts of the earth... We have to become the light of the world.”  And then to add insult to injury, the AP newsletter asserts that “instead of sending missionaries, we will see the fulfillment of Isaiah 2:2, “And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the Lord's house  shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.”  Mountains and hills are symbolic of governments, kingdoms and countries.  I guess there's no repentance for the goddess in New York harbor beseeching the poor and huddled riff-raff, the wretched refuse of third world countries to flood into our Promised Land.

Well, I think Isaiah would disagree with that assessment (of mud hut villagers flowing into the all-White demographics of Iowa, Maine and North Dakota, thanks to bleeding heart jews and catholics), “But thou, Israel, art My servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham My friend.  Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art My servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.  Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God; I will strengthened thee; yea I will help thee, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness” Isaiah 41:8-10.  I don't read anything there that would include other races or nations.  In fact, if we keep reading, we find out what the real prophetic fulfillment for the other races are, starting in verse 15, “Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff. 16 Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and thou shalt rejoice in the Lord, and shalt glory in the Holy One of Israel.”  Again, there is no sense of non-Israelites flowing unto the Lord's house; on the contrary, they are purged from the Kingdom of God.  This begs the question: if the alien strangers have no business in God's plan for the ages, then why would they need to repent?  The only change the enemy wants you to believe in is that repentance is universal and that repentance is not the exclusive command to Israel.  That's why I get hate mail charging me with racism, and that I should repent of my teachings.  Just the opposite is what our people should be repenting of and that is bowing down before the gods of integration i.e. Baal worship.  There is no scriptural support for Israel to change the world, the third world.  That's the “world” we are not to be conformed to (Romans 12:2), that Christ said He was not a part of (John 8:23), that our friendship of (the world) was enmity (hatred) towards God (James 4:4). 

Let's understand the word 'repentance,' which 'change' is merely the visible tip of the iceberg.  A concordance will give us a general sense of the word 'repent', but the Bible gives us specifics.  Strong's defines 'repent,' the Hebrew word 'nacham', #5162, as “to sigh, i.e. to breath strongly; by implication, to be sorry; defines the Greek word 'metanoia', #3340, as “to think differently or afterwards, i.e. reconsider (morally, feel compunction)”; and the word 'repentance,' “#3341, a compunction (for guilt, including reformation); by implication, reversal (of [another's] decision).”  I don't think that last part is talking about another person, but rather our former ways, for we are “new creatures.”  “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things pass away; behold, all things are become new” II Cor. 5:17.  In other words, when you repent, you can count on your life being brand new, a clean slate, your sins are erased.  The exhilaration, evidently, is so life changing that it affects our breathing.  The breath of life or Spirit of God given to Adam was this experience of physical inhaling/exhaling and on a spiritual level, the adrenaline is pumping your heart and you're breathing strongly.  The repentance is not a normal function of the body and mind, because we are creatures of habit and we don't just change something spontaneously.  There's a definite cause and effect.  There's something stimulating and exciting about repentance, but it has been mocked and cheapened by unbelievers and believers alike.  Repentance is White Power.  And we're going to see how that works in the Bible and how we can count on it working for us, through us and in us. 

Matthew Henry makes this comment on Mt. 3:2, “Repent ye. The word here used, implies a total alteration in the mind, a change in the judgment, disposition, and affections, another and a better bias of the soul. Consider your ways, change your minds: you have thought amiss; think again, and think aright. True penitents have other thoughts of God and Christ, sin and holiness, of this world and the other, than they had. The change of the mind produces a change of the way. That is gospel repentance, which flows from a sight of Christ, from a sense of his love, and from hopes of pardon and forgiveness through him. It is a great encouragement to us to repent; repent, for your sins shall be pardoned upon your repentance. Return to God in a way of duty, and he will, through Christ, return unto you in the way of mercy. It is still as necessary to repent and humble ourselves, to prepare the way of the Lord, as it then was. There is a great deal to be done, to make way for Christ into a soul, and nothing is more needful than the discovery of sin, and a conviction that we cannot be saved by our own righteousness.” 

An impediment to repentance may be the misunderstanding of the word 'conviction,' which the church world holds as firmly held beliefs, a feeling of being sure that what you believe is true.  But, if you believe in something that is false, you will never be convicted biblically unto repentance.  A biblical conviction is the determination of guilt, of a sin determined by the Law, and a person subsequently confessing their transgression.  The belief that the Law of God has been abolished and all one need do is adhere to the convictions of their heart is itself a sin, for “the heart is deceitful above all things” (Jer. 17:9) and is not qualified to play God.  Paul asked the question in Galatians 2:17, “Now if seeking to be deemed righteous in Christ we ourselves are also found to be [convicted of being] wrongdoers, then is Christ a minister of failure?  Certainly not!”  What's this talking about?  It's the old argument of grace vs. the Law. 

The real ministers of failure have made an 'either or' debate when there is none.  We are reckoned sinners by the judaizers for leaving the law of the temple and going to Christ directly for righteousness, and therefore the sarcastic accusation of “Christ the minister of sin.”  But, the whole of the rest of the Law is what defined the realm of what needed to be repented of.  So they throw out all of the Law so as not to accuse Christ of being an accomplice of sin.  But, God forbid any Christian would have the nerve to say such a thing of Him.  And yet that is the thinking of churchianity, that if we are still sinners, and unjustified, we seek Christ to be justified by Him, and need the Law [Levitical] and the works or rituals and sacrifices of it to justify us (full body immersion seems to be the most popular); then Christ, instead of being a minister of righteousness, is a minister of the law, the strength of sin, which accuses for it, and is the ministration of condemnation and death on account of it, which God forbid should ever be.  OR this is an objection of the adversary to the doctrine of free justification by the righteousness of Christ, as if it made void the Law, discouraged the performance of good works, opened a door to licentiousness that men might continue to sin, and live as they wish, being under no restraints of the Law, or under any obligation to obey it.  However, under the New Covenant we have the Law written in our heart and mind to the exclusion of all other races (Jer. 31:33).   Romans 9:4, “Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth... the giving of the law.”  The thing is: if there's no Law, there's no repentance.  There's just the convictions of your heart, which is in competition with what God has placed there... the Law!  How New Testament Christians can so terribly convolute the clear teaching of Christ makes one wonder whether they are that stupid or are purposely stupefying. Either way, you can count on the first command of Christ to repent being made of none effect.  Indeed, these are the ones who voted for the law of the jungle; who rationalize this one last beast empire, preferring Babylon to the Kingdom. 

Let me illustrate with a short movie review.  Have you seen the post apocalyptic movie 'After Earth'?  It's a negro movie written, directed and starring Will Smith, who of course is a high ranking general.  It's about a negro world in outer space.  They're on a mission in their space ship and go through an asteroid belt, which damages the ship causing it to crash onto a planet, which is quarantined from humans, because everything on the planet has evolved to kill humans and they're nasty hybrids of bestiality.  Oh, did I mention the planet is earth and so we can surmise that it has become uninhabitable through some kind of catastrophe.  The movie doesn't tell you that darkness was back again from the likes of jewish Monsanto producing mutations of academy award winning science fiction; life imitating the dark arts.  The black general is stranded and for a minute between monsters is pontificating philosophically.  This is the epitome of not only the movie, but a defining moment for the stranger and his strange gods upon the earth today and the absurdity of repentance for any of them.   He says, “Fear is not real.  The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future.  It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist.  That is near insanity.  Do not misunderstand me, danger is very real, but fear is a choice.”  What's wrong with this picture?  Well, a lot!

According to I Cor. 10:26, “The earth is the Lord's and all that it contains.”  In fact, God says in Job 41:11, “Everything under heaven belongs to Me,” which could be any point in the universe.  Can a non-White mentality comprehend an omnipresent God?  I don't think they can and here's why.  In II Kings 17:24-34 the king of Assyria brought in alien strangers to repopulate Samaria, because Israel was deported.  The aliens were not a God fearing people, because they didn't think the God of Israel was real.  Even if they were shown the omnipotence of Israel's God, the best they could do was feign submission, and pretend to be converted.  And they, “Know not the manner of God” (v. 26).  Such people will form unworthy thoughts of God, and expect to please Him by outward forms, and will vainly try to reconcile His service with the love of the world and the indulgence of their lusts (does Christianized Hinduism ring a bell?).  They even brought back some Israelite priests to teach them how to fear the Lord (v. 28).  “Howbeit every nation made gods of their own” (v.29).   They maintained a mixed hybrid religion.  They may have gone through the motions, but they really didn't fear Him in their hearts.  Had they done so, they would have inquired about God's Laws and charted a future to obey them.  But a broken cistern (a mamzer) cannot hold the water of the Word (Jer. 2:13).  Non-Whites and especially negros are easily frightened even if they make movies trying to dispel their fears with mind over matter.  Ultimately, they cannot fear that which they cannot understand.  “Unto this day they do after the former manners; they fear not the Lord” (II Kings 17:34).  They always revert back to the jungle no matter how many millions of dollars worth of missionaries there are.  If fear is a choice, then “Choose ye this day whom ye will serve” Joshua 24:15.  “Elijah came near to all the people and said, "How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.  But the people were completely silent” I Kings 18:21.  If you recall, it took a little demonstration of divine firepower to convince the people that the Baal priests maintained the status quo by changing the Word of truth.  To repent of their sins, the people were highly motivated to drown 400 priests of Baal by the brook Kishon.  You might say they were breathing strongly.  They then could count on what?  They could count on the God that answers by fire; they could count on their not wavering on the judgments of God to bring order to their society; they could count on not fearing the face of adversaries.  Elijah sought not his own glory, but that of God, for the good of the people. Elijah's focus was to bring repentance.  The people all agreed, convinced, and satisfied; the God of Israel delivers His people.  Some had their hearts turned, but most of them were only convinced, not convicted.  Same thing happened in the wilderness under Moses; fantastic miracles and yet they murmured.  Cause and effect of who went into the Promised Land.  Do you think cause and effect or repentance will have anything to do with how you enter the Kingdom of God? 

Psalms 55:19 says, “Because they do not repent, they do not fear God.”  How can the stranger fear God if they don't believe fear is part of their emotional makeup?  It's an ambiguous world-view that has no sense of divine prophecy or predestination.  I read a survey a couple of years ago conducted by two very different magazines, Country Living and Ebony, polling their readership as to what they feared most in life.  I googled it and found it in Snopes saying that it was a myth.  Nevertheless, like the alleged Protocols, deemed an antisemitic hoax, there's a grain of truth to the so called manufactured survey.  The most feared things by blacks were: ghosts, dogs, registered mail, law enforcement and Father's Day.  The most feared things by Whites were: nuclear war, a child or spouse dying, having a terminal illness, unemployment and an economic meltdown.  When I was an illustrator in Vietnam, we would make PSYOP posters showing a tiger in the jungle lurching on the VC, so the best thing they could do was surrender and get a free bowl of rice.  Amazingly, this fear tactic was a huge success, even though we lost the no-win war.  Here's the Good News for Christian Israelites: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction” Prov. 1:7.  “Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; and the knowledge of the holy is understanding” Prov. 9:10.  Remember II Kings 17, in verse 25 it says, “And at the beginning of their dwelling there, they did not fear the Lord.  Therefore the Lord sent lions among them, which killed some of them.”  They didn't fear the Lord, because they didn't fear the Israelites; look at them White people going into captivity; hah ha, where's their God?  Our God was in the cause and effect.  One of the blessings of Israel was, “All the people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of thee” Deut. 28:10. 

Fear is what you think.  Hope is what you know.   I know that if we don't repent, the Kingdom is not nigh.  I know God reveals the future. If we do not repent, all the non-White people of the earth will think we are a cursed people, and they will be right.  We will be accounted as sheep for the slaughter, easy pickings.  The Prince of Peace did not come to bring peace among the races, communion with light and darkness, righteousness and unrighteousness; He said, “Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword” Mt. 10:34.  It was not yet time for the Lamb to be playing the part of the Lion or the expected warrior priest of the jews.  Instead, it was the sword of the Gospels that would bring violence from the jews, not peace and tranquility.  He came for the lost sheep of the house of Israel, not the goats of Edom.  He spoke in parables because the mysteries of the Gospel were not given to them (Mt.13:11, 15) who would kill Him; so that the mongrel could not see or hear or understand or be converted or be healed.  He came to be Israel's peacemaker and mediator between God and sinners, through the blood of His Cross, to bring the Gospel  to His Disciples and imbue them with power to preach it, to produce peace in the consciences of men, and to cultivate peace among the saints.  The Gospel was and is the means of dividing the people of Christ from the people of the world, and from their principles and practices.  It provoked associations and disassociations, keeping company and disfellowshipping.  We have the same challenge in the Christian Identity community, to discern the spirit, to see if it is from God.  Although it was not the design of Christ to instigate discord, it was through the malice and wickedness of satanic men that was eventually the effect and consequence of His coming.  We can emulate His racial message as well and anti-racists “shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely” (Mt. 5:11).  You can repent of a timid racial consciousness and you can count on routing a den of vipers; you can count on God blessing you with courage.  Christian Identity is not for the faint of heart, it's for the repentant.      

Let's look at the rest of that iceberg.  All sin is debt.  Jesus' death on the Cross paid our sin debt.  “Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.”  No fear – no wisdom.  Wisdom is justified by actual performance.  Justification is defined in Romans 8:1, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but the spirit.”  Jesus was not speaking of the philosophical wisdom of the
Greeks, but rather the wisdom of God defined in Deut. 4:6, “So keep and do them [the laws, statutes and judgments], for that is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples who will hear all these statutes and say, Surely this great nation [race] is a wise and understanding people.”  In other words, the wisdom as set forth in the Law is manifested by those who actually live according to its principles.  You can count on repentance releasing you from condemnation and with all the things you get in life, you finally get understanding (Prov. 4:7).  Ahhh, now I get it; God Himself has revealed it.  There's no other way to get the truth in life.  Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no man comes to the Father, but by Me” John 14:6. 

Let me throw out this question: are we supposed to cry when we repent?  Do crocodile tears count?  No, when we repent, there can be no insincerity, no dishonor, no hypocrisy.  Actors can cry on cue, but Christians cannot put on an act.  The third beatitude of Jesus is rendered differently by the Gospel writers; Luke 6:21 says, “Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.”  Whereas Matthew 5:4 says, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”  How can it be that those who weep or mourn are considered “blessed?”  Our natural instincts avoid pain and sorrow.  Perhaps wise old Solomon understood the meaning of this when he wrote, “It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting... Sorrow is better than laughter; for when a face is sad a heart may be happy.  The mind of the wise is in the house of mourning, while the mind of fools is in the house of pleasure” Eccl. 7:2-4. 

Those who never experience pain in life never truly mature in Christ.  Sin is a temporary pleasure.  True repentance is a permanent wisdom.  If the truth sometimes hurts, then repentance also sometimes hurts, it grieves the pleasure centers to change from the flesh to the spirit.  You can count on repentance to overcome the world.  By facing hardships and the sorrows of life, we intensify our relationship with Christ.  Matthew's word for 'mourn' is pentheo, #3996, “to grieve or wail.”  Luke's word for 'weep' is klaio, #2799, “to mourn or lament.”  The word pentheo is often used in connection to death and funerals, but also when men repent and lament for their sins.  The beatitude includes not only mourning and weeping on account of pain and suffering, but also repentance for sin or a sinful condition.  We weep now to enjoy true joy and laughter in the end (not artificial euphoria that is only transient).  We repent now so that the Holy Spirit may conform our lives to the example of Jesus.  When we repent, we can count on being more Christ-like.  The mourning and repentance are not ends in themselves, but are the means to an end.  Crucify the old man, and see  the  new man in Christ.

On the Oprah channel there's a show called 'The Have's and Have Nots,' a PSYOP for the redistribution of wealth.  Don't ya know it's White people who are the “Haves” and po' black people who are the “Have Nots?”  How's that working out for the murder capital of the world in South Africa?  I don't watch trash TV, but I researched it online and found out the name of the White family in this soap opera was the “Cryers.”  These actors have sold their souls to the devil, as Jim Cryer, is running for political office and gets a negress pregnant.  Oprah was instrumental in getting Obama elected, because of her wealth and media and influence.  But, the Bible is colorblind when it comes to “the rich” who have the means to avoid most pain and the luxury of pursuing pleasure.  “The love of money is the root of all evil; which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows” I Tim. 6:10.  Our people, the White race, the true Israel of the Bible, have learned the way of the heathen (Jer. 10:2).  “Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep” Luke 6:25.  Jesus was not chastising those who crack jokes, He was talking about “All that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life” I John 2:16.  The godless society of multicultural diversity and race mixing may enjoy a season of political correctness, but the “Kings of the earth who have committed fornication [miscegenation] and lived deliciously with her [modern Babylon], shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning...  And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise [made in China] any more” Rev. 18:9, 11.  'After earth' or after the negro world implodes, only repentant Israel will “rejoice over her... for God hath avenged you on her” Rev. 18:20.  By that prophetic time in the future, the race mixers and the rich “shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing” (Rev. 18:15).  By that time, the rewards of repentance will be too late to be in good standing with God, “For in one hour she is made desolate.”  God predicts the future and the future is ours. 

White people can have their place in the Kingdom if they repent.  We can count on the God who answers by fire.  The baptism of fire will burn the universalist from the New Jerusalem.  Repent of your comfort zone, fearing the race card and darkness.  Fear God and the wrath of His judgments to come for those who forsook His Law and grace.  “And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble” Obadiah 1:18.  We are the Bride of Christ and we make ourselves ready for the marriage supper of the Lamb by repentance.  We are arrayed in white robes made clean by the blood of Christ.  “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to Him.”  Repentance you can count on.  For it is a blessed assurance, not insurance (which is gambling).  As we sang the hymn, “Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!  O what a foretaste of glory divine!  Heir of salvation, purchase of God, Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.”  If you still don't know how to repent, pray for it and it shall be given unto thee.
