17) “And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said unto Moses, There is a noise of war in the camp.
18) And he said, It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome; but the noise of them that sing do I hear.
19) And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing; and Moses anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount.”
Shortly after being delivered from slavery, the Israelites forgot about all the wonderful and magnificent things that the LORD God had done for them and reverted to the way that many of them had worshipped in Egypt. They even worshipped their old gods. Moses and Joshua had been gone for over a month and many of the people had surmised that Moses or maybe both had been burnt up on the mount, and they were ready to go back to Egypt. So, what did the Israelites do--they partied!
They shouted, they sang, they danced to the beat of the music that they had learned while they were in Egypt for the last part of the 215 years that they were there. A few verses later we learn that the Israelites were given in idolatrous and immoral behavior to orgies in worship to their idol. They were sexually being led by the music and the drum beat.
Two Saturdays ago (12/15/2018), I saw the movie, starring Jimmy Stewart, called “Broken Arrow.” It also starred Debra Paget, born Doralee Griffin, and a person who my father was in drama class with in high school. The high school was Maysville, Kentucky Senior High School. My father was born Newell Jouett Elmore in Richmond, Kentucky, and Will Geer, Grandpa Walton, was born William Aughe Ghere in Frankfort, Indiana. They both moved to Maysville when they were teenagers, where they were in a couple of drama shows at the school together. But their lives took different paths as the years rolled on.
Around the holiday season, we hear it all the time, “Merry Christmas!” For those of us who do not celebrate this holiday, we hardly know how to respond. We do not want to be rude, so many times we might say, ”You too” or “Happy New Year” in passing. All along, we are thinking there is nothing merry about Christmas.
Judeo-Christians around the world continually support the myth that this holiday is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ; but the fact remains, this holiday has nothing to do with Jesus Christ. The only reason it does today, is due to the intervention and machinations of the Roman church. Let us face the fact that “Christmas” actually means “the mass of Christ.” The Roman Catholic Mass is the reenactment of the death of Jesus Christ. I ask, what is so joyous about our Lord being crucified over and over again, every Sunday or Midnight Mass, drinking His blood and eating His flesh? On Christmas Day, Catholics kill our Lord four times! This kind of gloating over the death of the Son of God is diabolical and evil! This is what the holiday is truly about – gloating (and gluttony by the way) over the death of Christ.
The reading for today comes from: Numbers 11:16-18:
This message comes from thoughts, and what I have heard from past messages and other sources for the past 6 weeks.
I want to take notice of God taking some of the Spirit away from Moses and giving it to the elders. I used to think that God could put His Spirit on all His people, but it is obvious that there is only so much Spirit available, and it is given to the remnant. The prophets had the Spirit. Jesus had the whole Spirit, and on Pentecost He dispensed it amongst the apostles and disciples of His choosing. Those who have that Spirit, what are they to do with it?
Certainly, they do not sit on it, for the Spirit convicts them or attacks their conscience for trying to do so. Those who have the Spirit cannot convert others, for God chooses who is converted. So, what to do with the Spirit?
Scripture ReadingDeuteronomy 4:1: “Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers giveth you.”
Today, the 16th day of December, is the anniversary of the Battle of Blood River. It happened 180 years ago, in 1838. They made a covenant with the LORD. It reads as follows:
“My brothers and fellow citizens, here we stand in the presence of the Holy God, creator of heaven and earth, to make a vow unto Him, that if His protection shall be with us and (He) give our enemy into our hand so that we might be victorious over him, that this day and date every year shall be spent as a birthday and a day of thanksgiving, just as a Sabbath is spent, and then we shall erect a temple to His honor wherever it will be pleasing to Him, and that we shall also instruct our children that they must also share in it, as well as for our generations yet to come. Because the Honor of His name shall thereby be glorified, and the glory and honor of the victory shall be given Him.” (Original in Dutch).
Scripture Reading: The Life of Adam & Eve 18:7-9 (Pseudepigrapha):
7) “The Word of God came to the serpent and said unto it…
8) Be thou dumb; and speak no more, thou and thy race because…The ruin of my creatures happened through thee…
9) And a wind came to blow from heaven by command of God that carried away the serpent from Adam and Eve, threw it on the shore, and it landed in _______.”
Where does this passage, that used to be studied by Biblical scholars, tell us in what country the serpent landed? Many Christians would say that there is no country at this time in existence. There is just Adam and Eve. The serpent would have been blown away into the barren outskirts of the Garden. That is because they believe that there were no other races on the earth. And if there were no other people on the earth, there certainly weren’t any countries.
Part 1: Who were the enemies of God's people from Adam to Jacob? There were no "Jews" until Esau and they weren't called "Jews" until many, many years later.
Part 2: "Judeo-Christianity": Many ordinary people are ignorant of the differences between Christianity and Judeo-Christianity. Do you know? If you don't, please read this sermon.
Part 3: "Broken Arrow": The movie Broken Arrow was made in 1950. Its main star was Jimmy Stewart. But some of the rest of the cast, along with its screenwriter, as well as the story had some very strange and fictional scenes. Learn about who was in the cast and what was wrong with the story.
Part 4: Israel screamed, sang and danced while Moses was up on the mount for a longer time than anticipated. Is that what Lucifer is trying to get Israel to do today? Even the United Nations has joined with the music festival in Belgium by giving them a plaque which says they are in agreement in what the music festival is doing.
In recent days, we have heard of some of our people whose families have had someone marry into another race. As time goes on, it seems, this terrible sin becomes more widespread. And, it will continue regardless if our people are in church or not (because most churches go along with it).
Moreover, who is responsible for this adulteration of our race? Sure, we can point the finger to the archenemy of Christianity, the jews and other politicians; but besides them, it lies in the heart of all “judeo-Christian” churches and their seminaries. And narrowing it down even more, many of these churches get their information and advice on the race issue from none other than “Answers in Genesis. While A.I.G. claims to be a Christian apologetic organization, I believe they do more harm than good in proclaiming the Christian message. They feed doctrinal error to individual Christians and churches who come to them for advice.
The name “Christmas” or Christ-Mass is a short form of the phrase, the Mass of Christ. It is a Mass service which is sometimes called Communion or Eucharist. It is where Catholics remember that Jesus died “supposedly for everyone” in the world and then came back to life. Catholics are universalists, and this is a holiday for universalists. The “Christ-Mass” service was the only one that was permitted to take place after sunset and before sunrise the next day. So, when is it held? It is held at midnight!
California has just experienced another crisis. It has just seen its biggest outbreak of wildfires—it broke all past records. Some 750,000 acres were burned, about 9700 homes destroyed with 57,000 more in danger, and 74 and climbing, lives lost, with about 1,100 individuals missing. There could be as many as 300 or more lives lost before the fires are under control.
Here is what the November 10th U.S. News & World Report wrote about this devastating event:
“Throughout the American West, trees already short of nutrients because of crowding are suffering from a four-year-old drought, the worst in 300 years. Bark beetles have attacked the weakened trees across much of the West, killing up to 70 percent of them in some areas. In San Bernardino National Forest, beetles have ravaged half a million acres so far. When fire does break out, the crowding allows flames to leap treetop to treetop in a fast-moving crown fire, as happened in parts of Southern California last week.”
California had a six-year drought at the end of the 1980s. Now it has suffered through another multi-year drought. That state also has a $38 billion deficit, the worst of any state in the United States.
What is happening in California? One disaster after another is striking California. These deadly disasters are repeatedly labeled the “worst ever!” With all the disasters that have struck California the past few years, it’s as if the state is under a CURSE.
