“When Herod the king had heard these things,he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him”(Matthew 2:3).
Misgiving:qualm, doubt, reservation; suspicion; (misgivings) distrust, mistrust, lack of confidence, second thoughts; trepidation, skepticism, unease, uneasiness, anxiety, apprehension.
Probably most devout and sincere Christians, at least some time in their life, have had second thoughts about Christmas being the birth of Jesus, the Christ child. And, for good reason, things like: commercialism, pagan customs, and the catholic mass. But, that is a different subject.
God’s enemies had some anxieties about the birth of our Savior. King Herod certainly was suspicious of a prophesied king out of Bethlehem. And, he set out to kill the baby. Even all of Jerusalem had a sense of uneasiness about the prospect of a new king coming to perhaps interfere with their choice of lifestyle. Did the people of Jerusalem love their sins too much?
Would the United We Stand organization who sponsored the women's marches last week in Cincinnati be in favor of God's laws or would they keep their own God forbidden laws for their daughter's sake? Find out what they believe--they are our enemy.
Moses’ farewell address to Israel. Moses starts off by asking a question, Has anyone ever seen such a thing as has happened to you? You are now alive, and yet you heard the voice of God speaking from the fire. Has anyone heard God speaking audibly to them as a nation? For example: Have the Chinese ever in their history heard God speak from a fire to them? Have the Indians? Have the Hispanics? Have the Negroes?
The only nation who has ever had this happen was the nation of Israelites at Mt. Sinai. What do you think that God said to His people at this time? It was really His wedding proposal! But besides this happening, has any other nation been taken from another nation? Israel was taken out of Egypt, just four generations from the covenant that the LORD God made with their fathers.
Christians go to church nearly every Sunday expecting to hear the truth yet most pastors tell some very big lies. They claim to teach the Bible yet teach and say things in total contradiction to the scriptures. They may not even realize they are telling lies to their congregations because they are just ignorant of what the Bible says. However, it is their job to know the scriptures; and why hasn’t their training from the colleges and seminaries taught them properly? Now that is a big question!
It is depressing to live in an age where Christianity is so corrupt that it makes those who know the whole truth of the Bible feel like Elijah. To Elijah, it appeared that he was alone in preaching the whole counsel of God. Today it is the same – most churches do not preach all that is found in the Bible. How can a Christian identify a false church? Surely, any real Christian attempting to serve God would not want to be in a false church. There are some signs that can indicate if an alleged church is fake. I will start with the least sign to the most sure sign that can help us identify a false church. Sadly, most churches today have all of these problems. But for the sake of study, let us examine each of these characteristics separately.
Two weeks ago was New Year’s Day. The day before New Year’s Day is a day spent in celebration of the end of the old year and the beginning, or birth, of the new. But for how long has this been the situation? Has it been in existence for over 6000 years that New Year’s Day is on January 1st.
When I was in the eighth grade, I remember it very well; we were assigned to do a written report and in addition to our written report we had to also give a speech in front of our class about a certain topic. My topic had to do with the a few of the different calendars that were in existence in the world. I learned then, that this was a difficult subject for me to understand.
However, the teacher liked my report and had me give it at a special meeting of teachers; but it was just an elementary level report, but I had never thought about it before. I knew then that it was a lot more complicated than I could understand. And it still is.
Later, I learned, thanks to Christian Identity, that biblical ancient Israel had a very different calendar than we have now. Their new year had been, for over 3500 years, in the springtime. This explained some previously difficult scriptures that had to do with different calendars. For example, the day began in the Bible at the setting of the sun and not at one second after Midnight. This cleared up several scriptures right away.
Here is a scripture which tells us that Israel was to celebrate each new year in the spring:
Continuing on in the study of Deuteronomy ... Moses was giving the Israelites their history over the last 40 or so years. They had just completed the victory over Sihon, king of the Amorites, and destroyed him and his people. He then tells of the battle with king Og. He tells of seven things that happened:
The LORD God delivered king Og into the hands of Israel with all his people. God was the one who gave Israel their victory; it was not Israel on their own who defeated king Og. All people of the earth were not equal in the eyes of God. His covenant people were His elect. Other races were fit for destruction.
Israel smote Og until there was none remaining. Israel, under their God’s orders, committed genocide.
Israel took all his cities, being 60 walled cities, many villages, and unwalled towns.
Israel destroyed all of the individuals in Og’s kingdom—men, women, and children as Israel did the Amorites under king Sihon.
Israel took all the cattle, and the spoil of all the cities and villages as a spoil to themselves.
Israel took from these two kings (Sihon and Og) all the land along the river Jordan from the Arnon River on the south to mount Hermon on the north, which was beyond the Sea of Galilee.
Israel took all the cities of the plains, all of Gilead, and all of Bashan.
Israel gave all this land to half the tribe of Manasseh, all the tribe of Gad and all the tribe of Reuben.
The following is a letter Pastor Mark wrote as an expert witness for a Christian Identity prison case up in Michigan. They've been fighting it for years, and hopefully this will dissolve once and for all. Those in Michigan should start making plans to attend the trial in August.
Let me thank you for allowing me to participate in this case as I've been pondering the ramifications, not just in the prison systems, but for pastors, authors and expositors of Christian Identity. There are adversaries who can obviously twist what we're about with impunity in a few prisons with the hopes that these political opinions transform into laws and then those laws are shown in courts to be applicable to people like myself, which would have an unprecedented prejudice against law abiding Identity Christians and perhaps trickle down to mainstream Christian churches. In fact, this strategy is already in motion and I'll discuss it when I get to the SPLC. This case is important because it is blatant discrimination and the perpetrators would love for there to be a domino effect to silence us forever.
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.
