Scripture Reading:  Deuteronomy 1:37-40

We start off today’s sermon with Moses relating that the old generation would not go into the Promised Land. Everyone older than 20 years old was the old generation. Twenty years old is the age when a child becomes an adult, not at 18 years old. Our nation has fixed the age of adulthood at 18. They have the children leaving the home in which their parents are guardians and taking charge of their own lives, when they are still a teenager. Children, especially girls, leave their protective homes and are vulnerable to the dating game when they are living in dorms away from home. They are even in trouble when they are home because dating is not the Biblical way—courtship is. But that is another sermon.

Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 1:6-8

Last Sunday we studied the introduction to the whole book of Deuteronomy, the first five verses. These five verses previewed the words that Moses spoke and wrote to all Israel just before his death and their entrance into the territory west of the Jordan River where the other Canaanite nations lived. This entire book was spoken by Moses 40 years and ten and one-half months after the Exodus of Israel from Egypt. And Moses was forty-five years older than I am right now—he was 120 years old! It was his birthday. And when he finished his speech (ended the book), he died.

The book of Deuteronomy is Moses’ farewell address to his people. What do you think he told the Israel people before he died? Moses had led the people into two mighty successful campaigns against Sihon and Og. They had annihilated all the strangers who lived on the eastern part of the Jordan River. This territory was given to 2½ tribes. The remaining 9½ tribes were to be given land not yet conquered. The land was on the other side of the river. Moses was to die that day, so he would have to tell them who their leader would be that they should follow after he was gone.

The book was written and spoken about 1645 B.C., in the plains of Moab by the Jordan River near Jericho, just before their miraculous entrance into Canaan. The name of the book, Deuteronomy, means Second Law, because it records the repetition of the 10 commandments. It contains the parting counsels of Moses to Israel in view of:

Scripture Reading:  Deuteronomy 1:1-5

First, this week has seen over ¼ of a million-people evacuated from their homes in the western part of America. Where and why? It is in southern California near Los Angeles that wild fires, spread by high winds, up to 70 mph, are devastating neighborhoods, practically without any warning. Hundreds of homes have been destroyed, with the threat of many more. A quote from a resident: “I have lived in this area for 30 years and I have never seen anything like this.” Guess what city Meghan Markle was reared in. We have raised the ire of our LORD God.

Second, President Trump agreed with Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel that the United States will recognize Jerusalem, the main city of the three major religions, as the capital of Israel. Mr. Trump, officials said, would make clear that the United States is not taking a position on whether, or how, Jerusalem is divided between Israel and the Palestinians. He will also not take a position on who will control a disputed area of the Old City, known as the Temple Mount to Jews and Haram al-Sharif to Muslims, which has been a flash point for tensions.

President Trump plans to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the American Embassy there, upending nearly seven decades of American foreign policy and potentially destroying his efforts to broker peace between Israel and the Palestinians. The very pro-Jewishness of our government should be very evident. They put fake-Israel first. Palestinians as well as many of our allies decry this position. We have raised the ire of our LORD God.

The Christogenea Hymnal

Compiled by James Jester

The Christogenea Hymnal

The Christogenea Hymnal contains 108 traditional hymns, topical index, alphabetical index, an Appendix which contains two articles, “What is Christian Identity?” and “Model Prayers.” The prayers and hymns in the back will be a great resource for church or for family worship time.

This compilation of hymns relies heavily upon the post-Reformation period. There are hymns traditionally known as Methodist, Baptist, or Lutheran hymns. Now there are hymns that will come to be known as Christian Identity hymns, such as, “O Israel Awaken,” or “Jerusalem” (The Glastonbury Hymn), or “God’s Covenant People.

Many of the hymns will be familiar to most Christians regardless of their religious background; however, there will be some hymns you have never heard of before, until now.

The Fourth of July – A Hollow Holiday

By Jim Jester

Have you ever noticed that in recent years the birthday of our country is usually referred to as the “Fourth of July” rather than the traditional “Independence Day?” Could it be that the authorities do not want us to think about independence or the actual founding principles of America? I think it is a very real possibility. Those in control and the media will use our once great holiday for political purposes, glorifying the military, and talking about “those who died for our freedom” even though they are thousands of miles away in a foreign land. They will tell us tear-jerking stories just to keep us in line. The “liberals” and other establishment politicians do not care if we have a day off to party, drink beer, watch fireworks or even wave a flag; they do care if we become activists to preserve what is left of the few freedoms (gun rights, free speech, etc.) that still remain. I assert that the Fourth of July is void, empty, useless and without real meaning – in effect, a hollow holiday.

Memorial Day, Another Hi-jacked Holiday

By Jim Jester

Memorial Day is to remember and honor those who have died in America’s wars. But, when was the last time you heard anything about the death of the Confederate soldiers? Originally, Decoration Day (later changed to Memorial Day) began in the south. There are more soldiers buried in the south than in the north. The Confederate army was the last group of patriots to fight for freedom and the constitution. However, they were denied the democratic process of self-governance and were slaughtered by an unlawful and immoral war.

Memorial Day is just another hi-jacked holiday. By hi-jacked I mean a holiday which has been altered, twisted or used by the government to promote its agenda. Rarely do we hear about the true patriot who died for his country. Instead, we hear about those who died for the U.S. government. There is a big difference!
