Of Fishers and Hunters

Scripture Reading: Jeremiah 16:14-18

Introduction

This could be considered a follow-up sermon on the recent series I did on Israelite migrations.

Ah, fishing and hunting, two very popular sports diversions to help the working man or woman escape the stresses of everyday life. They are also good survival skills too. Fishing is the easiest, but hunting sometimes can be a little more difficult. We can also see this difficulty in relation to the captivity of Israel, which of course, precipitated the dispersion of Israel and Judah throughout Asia and Europe.

In my previous series of sermons, we traced much history about the migrations of Israel. The armies of Tiglath-Pileser III, Shalmaneser V, Sargon II, Esarhaddon, Sennacherib, and Nebuchadnezzar, found that their attack upon Israel was sometimes easy, much as a fishing net would easily capture large amounts of fish. On the other hand, there were times when the invader, as a hunter after his prey, would have to seek out those people who had hidden from him in the mountains and caves or other places.

THE STUART FAMILY

2 Chronicles 23:11-13

These are three verses that tell of the climax of some of the wild things that happened in the royalty of both Judah and Israel. Briefly stated, Athaliah was the daughter of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel of Israel. Athaliah was married to Jehoram of Judah to seal a treaty between the two kingdoms. In addition, to further secure his position, her husband, Jehoram, murdered his six brothers. Jehoram became king of Judah in the fifth year of Jehoram of Israel’s reign. Both kings of the two kingdoms had the same name--Jehoram.

Jehoram of Judah reigned for eight years and after his death Ahaziah, his son, became king of Judah. Athaliah was the queen mother. Ahaziah reigned for only one year and was killed during a state visit to Israel along with Jehoram of Israel. It was a double assassination of both kings by Jehu. Jehu also killed Athaliah’s entire extended family in Samaria to death, ending the Omri dynasty in Israel.

Upon hearing the news of the massacre of her family and the death of the two kings, Athaliah seized the throne of Judah and ordered the execution of all possible claimants to the throne. Her sister managed to rescue from the purge a one-year old boy, Jehoash, who was raised in secret by her husband, the priest named Jehoiada. As queen, Athaliah used her power to establish the worship of Baal in Judah. Six years later, Athaliah was surprised when Jehoiada revealed that Jehoash lived and proclaimed him King of Judah. She rushed to stop the rebellion but was captured and executed.

What a story. Murders, assassinations, abuses of power, marriages to seal treaties, corruptions, hidden coronation, charges of treason… “there is nothing new under the sun.” In my last sermon I talked about how the Jews got back into England after being banned for almost 400 years. What a story that was. Today’s sermon will be a continuation of that strange and mysterious event.

To the Michigan Department of Corrections

WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO SAY TO THE MICHIGAN DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS

by Pastor James Jester

Re: James Fox v Heidi Washington et al; United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

The above case was heard on the 4th of December, 2019 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The issue before the court is whether or not to allow Christian Identity to be approved as an officially recognized religion by the Michigan Department of Corrections so inmates can be allowed to meet for public worship.

Most Christians could well accept Christian Identity since Identity adherents believe in most of basic historic doctrines of the Christian faith, such as: man’s fall into sin and depravity, the atonement of Christ, divine judgment, grace, forgiveness, justification and sanctification, etc. However, what really sets other people off about C. I. is their racial views (the “identity” part). They find their racial doctrine of Separatism offensive and even “racist” (a term that needs definition).

Properly understood, racism is not a bad word. Racism and its sister doctrine Separatism actually helps the various races to remain as distinct species; and aids in the preservation of an orderly society.

GOD'S VIEW ON THE HOUSE FOR THE SPIRIT AND THE SOUL

By Walt Giddings

December 15, 2019

Scripture Reading: Romans 1:20

In Lesson three we asked ourselves some questions. Is one of the marks of a Christian his ability to see the invisible? If we understand “the things that are made”, our bodies, the houses for our spirits and souls, are we understanding the invisible things of Him?

In Lesson 3 we asked, Does the Bible mention Nerves, the cells of the body’s master communication system? Believing Romans 1:20 we trusted we could see the invisible by understanding the things that are made: nerve cells. We asked, How is nerve tissue structured to time messages out to all parts of the body and back again in a cycle?

Testimony of the Power of Prayer

  • Prayer request for Pastor McCurry, who is reportedly now in hospice.  Samples of Pastor McCurry's newsletters are on our website:  Wake Up Herald
  • Brief discussion of imprecatory prayer
  • Several examples given of the power of prayer

Our people are in mortal danger

Many people hate God and His people. There were peoples here before Adam. There has been a battle between pre-Adamites and Adamites since God created Adam and that battle continues today, because they know and are resistant to our dominion mandate.  God's people are White and bright, in His image.  We have a body, soul and spirit.

ANGLO-SAXON ISRAEL

By Jim Jester

December 1, 2019

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 49:8-21

Introduction

In the Scripture reading, Israel is in foreign and desolate lands, yet Yahweh is leading her and using mountain valleys as highways as they continue to migrate to the west and into Europe. “They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places. They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them” (v. 9-10). God said He would not forget Israel – He provided for them a large enough place to live. “Give ear to the word of the Lord, O you nations, and give news of it in the sea-lands far away, and say, He who has sent Israel wandering will get him together and will keep him as a keeper does his flock” (Jer. 31:10, BBE).

Looking back, we have covered the early migrations of Israelites, then migrations after the divided kingdom: first Israel, then the final blow to Judah – the destruction and captivity of Jerusalem. This is the last lesson of the series tracing further significant migrations of Israel (now not known by that name) throughout Europe and Asia Minor (500-64 B.C.).

TWO BRITISH REVOLUTIONS

Copied from the sermon notes of Pastor Don Elmore

November 24, 2019

Scripture Reading: Matthew 13:10, 11

These are two very interesting verses. The LORD’s disciples asked Jesus a question: “Why do You speak to them in parables?”

The understanding of His answer is practically unknown in Christendom today. For the reason He gave, was because the mysteries (secrets) of the kingdom of heaven would be given unto you (His disciples) and not to them (the unholy seed). There was a big difference. Jesus said that He spoke in parables to reveal secrets to one group of people and to conceal them from another group. Why didn’t He want the unholy seed to understand what He was saying?

The mysteries are secrets previously hidden. Jesus revealed to His people secrets that were unknown to them at that time. They had been hidden since before the foundation of the earth. Wow! What secrets were these?

Scripture Reading:  I Corinthians 4:15

Greetings kindred. We are on a first name basis here. My name is Walter. The Holy Spirit is our real Teacher. If Jesus Christ is our Real Teacher, what, then, is my role in His Classroom today?

The King James English word “instructers” is translated from the Greek word “paidagogos”{paheedag-ogos], from which we obtain our English word “pedagogue”. May I read you the explanation for this Greek word “paidagogos”?

A servant whose office it was to take the children to school. By implication [figuratively] a tutor. Strong’s Greek Dictionary. Is my role in the Master’s classroom to lead you to The Real Teacher?

How many here attended both Bible Biology Lessons I and II? How many here attended neither? Those of you who attended either one or both know I bring an interesting background. Seven years after graduation from chiropractic college, I chose to reexamine all four years of four thousand six hundred twenty hours of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology, lab analysis, diagnosis, and clinical work using The Bible as my road map, template, and “light unto my path”. These lessons are the result of that ongoing choice.

THE DIASPORA OF JUDAH

By Pastor Jim Jester

November 10, 2019

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 1:1-4

Scripture Exposition

What a picture Isaiah gives in these last two verses of our reading! “O nation full of sin: a people weighted down with crime; a generation of evil-doers; children that deal corruptly; have forsaken Yahweh, and give no thought to God.” [my paraphrase]

Isaiah was one of the prophets to the southern kingdom of Judah. In chapter two, he further elaborates on the sinful condition of God’s people (the topic of the first five chapters):

O family of Jacob, come, and let us go in the light of the Lord [The prophet calls them to repentance – A return to Yahweh]. For you, O Lord, have given up your people, the family of Jacob, because they are full of the evil ways of the east, and make use of secret arts like the Philistines, and are friends with the children of strange countries. And their land is full of silver and gold, and there is no end to their stores; their land is full of horses, and there is no end to their carriages. Their land is full of images; they give worship to the work of their hands, even to that which their fingers have made.” – Isaiah 2:5-8, BBE

Perhaps we should take note of these things listed, many of which sounds exactly like America or any other modern country:

DON'T MARRY A CANAANITE

Copied from the sermon notes of Pastor Don Elmore

November 3, 2019

Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 7:3, 4

It seems to me that our LORD God totally disagrees with interracial marriages. There is no such thing as a Canaanite being a child of God. That is why there were no missionaries sent to try to convert any of them. The reason is that it is impossible to do. The LORD God said that He would be the God of the seed of the fathers who He loved and made an everlasting covenant with. Any person who marries into the unholy seed will serve other gods. This is what the LORD God said and that is what I believe.

RACIAL RECONCILIATION

Copied from the sermon notes of Pastor Don Elmore

October 27, 2019

Scripture Reading:  Romans 15:8

Agents of the racial reconciliation movement have been willing tools of the non-Adamites as they rage against the Lord and His anointed people. By means of a twisted and perverted “gospel” they work to bring about the practices of integration and miscegenation for the purpose of destroying the holy nation of Israel.

However, God promised us that He will deliver Israel from the hand of her enemies and He will remember the everlasting covenant that He made with Abraham, confirmed with his son, Isaac, and his grandson, Jacob and his seed.

Remember what John the Baptist’s father said after nine months of being deaf...

THE DIASPORA OF ISRAEL

By Pastor Jim Jester

October 20, 2019

Scripture Reading: Genesis 28:10-16

Introduction

Most of the judeo-Christian world has heard very little about the captivities of ancient Israel. Most of their pastors are aware of the split of the kingdom of Israel resulting in the northern kingdom of Israel and the southern kingdom of Judah. They are also aware of the captivity of each of these kingdoms. However, since little is known, much is left to speculation and assumption. Few of them, and likewise their followers, are aware of the magnitude of the captivities and migrations of Israel and Judah. They assume [My response in brackets]:

  • The population of Israel was relatively small, maybe in the thousands. [Actually, Israel was in the millions. According to I Chronicles 21:5, King David (about 1010 B.C.) could field over a million and a half men! This number did not include women, children, elderly or the maimed. We can only imagine how massive the total population was at the time.]

  • Since Israel and Judah were in “captivity”, the impression is that they were penned up somewhere as if in a jail. [Actually, they were “captive” i.e., “in bondage to” another king.]

  • Since they were “captive”, certainly they could not have gone anywhere unless set free. [There is no concept of a migration.]

  • That most of the Israelites simply died off. [A violation of God’s promise to Abraham. “They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.” – Ps. 72:5, etc.]

SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT

Copied from the sermon notes of Pastor Don Elmore

October 13, 2019

Scripture Readng:  Leviticus 23:21

With regret, the audio file was unusuable.

This introductory verse (Leviticus 23:21) was talking about the holy day of Pentecost. The original Pentecost (meaning 50 days) was 50 days after Israel left Egypt. This day was a yearly sabbath. But doesn’t this teach something that most sabbath-keepers have never understood or read? There is a 48-hour sabbath every year!

Look at what the The Dake Reference Bible says about what this verse teaches us:

“Pentecost was an extra sabbath added to the regular one. This made a 48-hour sabbath at which time the weekly sabbath was changed to a day later for the remainder of the year, and until the next Pentecost” [emphasis mine].

In addition to this statement, the Dake Bible adds on Page 111, the following:

“The 7th-day sabbaths of Israel were changing sabbaths, being observed on two different days each year because of an additional sabbath being observed at Pentecost. If we suppose, for instance, that the 15th of Abib (when Israel left Egypt) which was on the Sabbath, was Saturday, then the 7th-day sabbath would fall on Saturday for 7 weeks, or until 49 days had run their course. The 50th day, which would be Sunday, would be Pentecost.

The next 7th-day sabbath after Pentecost would fall on Sunday, and so it would be until Pentecost of the following year which would change the 7th-day sabbath again. This time it would fall on Monday until the next Pentecost which would be 50 days after the first 15 days of Abib, as stated, or on the 65th day of that particular new year. Thus, there was no such thing as the sabbath always being on Saturday throughout the year, or perpetually.”

This is significant.

WHY ALL THE DIFFERENCES?

Scripture Reading: 2 Timothy 3:13-15

What was the religion of the Protestants that began and fueled the Protestant Reformation? Martin Luther and John Calvin were the two most famous reformers, but there were many more who did not reach the fame of these two. What did they teach?

Luther and Calvin were both writers as well as Catholic priests—who raised serious objections about the Roman Catholic Church. You can read what they believed four to five hundred years later. Luther was the author or co-author of the following books...

This is the newer Celtic Nations flag since the 7th and 8th nation (namely, Galicia and Asturias) no longer have a population that uses a Celtic language. THE CELTIC NATIONS

By Pastor Jim Jester

September 29, 2019

Scripture Reading: Genesis 10:1-5

“Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood. The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah. And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. By these [men] were the isles of the Gentiles [nations] divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

Currently, the adult Sunday School class of the Fellowship of God’s Covenant People is studying from Dr. Lawrence Blanchard’s “Bible Mastery Boot Camp”. This video training program is based upon his Covenant Heritage Series of books, one of which is Book Two, Identifying Biblical Israel Today.

Introduction

This lesson will be the first of a series of sermons that will glean some of the information that Dr. Blanchard has provided in Book Two, Section One: “Tracing the Migrations of the Israelites.” In this way, many who follow us on the web site can receive some of the benefits of the “Bible Mastery Boot Camp”, at least in the form of a summary or abbreviated version of it. We certainly endorse brother Blanchard’s work; and recommend that as many as are able to take full advantage of the “Bible Mastery Boot Camp”.

Genesis chapter ten lists how the nations were divided by the descendants of Noah. Noah had three sons: Japheth, Ham, and Shem. We read in our Scripture the list of Japheth. Verse 6 begins the list from Ham, and verse 21 begins the list from Shem. After each of these lists, the Scripture repeats, “…after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations” (or a close variation). Our reading of verse 5 was no different, except for the mention of the “isles”; or, as some translations say, “coastlands”, “sea-lands”, or “coastal peoples”, which is also appropriate. In this lesson, I want to talk about some of these isles.
