There were at the time that this verse was written, fables--in particular Jewish fables, which the Christian was instructed to pay no attention to. We were warned not to get comfortable with these distortions of truth. Jewish fables or fictions or myths are still very much all around us. Do we still give heed to them?
Esau hates Jacob. Jews hate Israel. The Edomite Jew believes that if all the descendants of Jacob/Israel were no longer alive, then the covenant recipient would have to go back to the one before Jacob, i.e. Esau, because of default. Remember, Esau once was in possession of the covenant and all its blessings, but he despised it. He sold it to his younger twin brother Jacob. And a little later he lost the blessing because Jacob and his mother plotted against him and deceived his father.
It had to be a good deception to fool Jacob’s father, Isaac. For Isaac loved Esau while his wife loved Jacob. Isaac’s eyesight at that time was very bad, so Jacob had to disguise himself as Esau. Fixing the venison wasn’t hard, as his mother helped prepare the meal. But putting goat hairs on his arms and the smooth of his neck and wearing Esau’s goodly raiment convinced Isaac that it had to be Esau because Jacob smelled and felt just like Esau. And the twin boys were so different. Esau was an avid hunter and outdoorsman while Jacob was a shepherd. (Now it is just the opposite—Esau is deceiving Jacob’s descendants that Esau is Jacob.)
Isaac felt the skins of the goat hairs and smelled the raiment that Jacob wore, and that convinced him that Jacob was indeed Esau. It was the only time in the Scriptures that man depended upon his feeling, and he was deceived.
Have you ever heard the phrase 'it's gonna get worse before it gets better'? Of course you have. They've pounded it into our heads more times than the number of McDonald's hamburgers ever made. Speaking of which… have you heard about this documentary movie called 'Super Size Me'? It's about this guy that lives on a McDonald's fast food menu for one month. I guess you could call it the 'Golden Arches Diet'; nothing else but Big Macs, Eggs McMuffins, Chicken McNuggets and greasy fries. This gentleman, being under medical supervision, was almost hospitalized near the end of his little experiment. But, it just goes to show you that things can get worse depending on what you put into your body, mind and spirit. Like junk food, we can feed our heads with mindless mantras of doom 'n gloom.
Sermon Notes of Pastor Mark Downey with William Finck

Scripture Reading: Ephesians 2:1-8
From today's Scripture reading, we should learn at least one thing: a state of sin is a state of conformity to this world. Wicked men are slaves to the world order; whether old or new beast empires, they're all the same. The adversaries of God are the authors of confusion, of that pride that goes before destruction, of that carnal disposition of “all that is in the world,” which is in the ungodly i.e., the beings which cannot be of God. They may be alive, but they are nothing but death to the White man. They, the children of wrath, live to kill us. They live to spoil us. We are the prey upon which rests the premise that we are just like them and they are just like us. But, God's eternal love is only for one race of people to whom He makes His Covenants. It is the fountain whence all His mercies flow unto us, the children of God and heirs of glory. God's mercy is so rich that all the gold and silver of the earth does not come close to redeeming His chosen. The grace that saves true Israel is the free, undeserved goodness and favor that God looks upon exclusively, not by the works of the Law that was given to one race exclusively (Ps. 147:19-20), but through the exclusive faith in a Kinsman Redeemer. Salvation is by race, to wit “All Israel shall be saved” Romans 11:26. The cold truth is that other so called races will not be saved, and for good reason. They can never have the faith in Christ that saves them. They were never meant to be born to serve God. In fact, God says their gods will be a snare to His elect (Ex. 23:33). The Word of God is immutable: “For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed” Malachi 3:6. Consumed by whom? The racial alien; the inconvertible stranger; God's enemies. They cannot convert to Christ because Christ said, “My sheep hear My voice, I know them, and they follow Me” John 10:27. Goats are not sheep.

Scripture Reading: Romans 9:14-18
I recently did a program with William Finck at Christogenea.org and this sermon is an extension and enhancement of that broadcast. Thus, I rightly give credit where credit is due for Bill's help in putting the pieces of the puzzle together. In his introduction he stated, “Mercy is the most important component in the providence of God, which must be understood before Christians can understand how all Israel is saved… It is God's will, not man's, that will prevail over His Creation.” This was a tough nut to crack until Bill told me the simple answer to what I thought was perplexing, with one word: “mercy.” And that's all it took for me to begin researching and writing for today's presentation.
Our church recently received a letter with very pointed questions and all of them revolved around the seeming disparity of justice regarding various biblical characters who committed similar offences, but received dissimilar judgments of the Law. I appreciate tough questions that force us to seek answers. As Prov. 27:17 tells us, “iron sharpens iron,” suggesting how learned Christian brethren sharpen one another's minds by conversation.
Two weeks ago, there was a “swastika” spray painted across the welcome sign of Hebrew Union College. Rabbi Daniel Bogard said: “We say ‘not in my country,’ or ‘not in my city,’ or ‘not in my school.’ But this IS our country, and it Is my city, and this IS the quiet and peaceful campus that I spent my rabbinical school years at, defiled with a swastika” (Cincinnati Enquirer, January 6, 2017, Page 8A).
Is the United States a Jewish country? Is Cincinnati a Jewish city? Is that what the Rabbi is saying? It is where the Rabbi spent his years of schooling to learn to become a leader in Judaism. It is where he learned the Talmud. And it is the Talmud that says that the Jews are the chosen people of god and the rest of the people are “goyim.” Do you believe that? Is that true?
When I visited the Hebrew Union College several years ago, I found that the doors to all their campus buildings were locked. You had to buzz someone who was inside the building and identify yourself. You had to tell who you were and what you were going to do there. In my case, I had to explain that I was going to look for a certain pamphlet in the library. It was a little nerve-racking, but I did it, and I was let in. While at the library, I found out a lot of stuff that I didn’t know. It was contrary to what I had been taught. It was quite an interesting library! It had all the Jewish articles about Jewish people and what they have done to push their Communist agenda. It was very progressive and liberal.
Scripture Reading: Proverbs 29:18 “Where there is no vision, the people perish”
When was the last time you heard another Christian share a vision with you, that wasn’t floating in the ether of raptured prose or pious platitudes, but rather something of a vision that was down to earth, unpretentious, understandable and provides the kind of hope that foments victory? Well, this is a sequel to my sermon ‘Jesus Christ for President,’ because I realized what good is that premise without a follow-up as to how things would be should people rally together in their desire for the government of Christ Himself. Therefore, a vision is a plan with a purpose and a Christian Identity Inaugural address serves the purpose of familiarizing ourselves with what could be our destiny and reality. Unfortunately, our people have been more conditioned and programmed to an apocalyptic end of the world, than an end of the Mystery religions and prophetic Babylon. I think the point of Christ’s return is that the bride has finally made herself ready. And if we could envision an inaugural address, fictional as it may be, where God’s people Israel are on the verge of renewing her vows of marriage, we may not perish after all. I have only given this sermon twice before at the time of George W. Bush being crowned for a second term, during the deification of Obama’s second term (2013) and I give it now (1-8-17) just prior to the Trump era beginning January 20th. Let us now prepare our lives for what must come to pass.
This is an inaugural address that Trump should give, but won't.
Scripture reading: Genesis 27:41“And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing with which his father [Isaac] blessed him [Jacob]: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother, Jacob.”
We have seen in our Biblical History studies, several different races of people. The Canaanites are one interesting group of people that the Judeo-Christian movement (branch of Roman Catholicism) cannot answer with a consistent view on their issue of equality. The Canaanites became a mongrel mix from Canaan, a descendant of Ham, and the Kenites, who were descended from Cain. Many of these people, in the days of ancient Israel, had very tall and strong giants living among them and mixing with them.
The Judeo-Christian will agree that the Canaanites were to be completely killed by God’s people. They were instructed by God’s own words. He didn’t instruct His people to send missionaries first with the intent to try to convert some of them; but to kill every man, woman, child and infant, including even their animals. There is not one descendant of the Kenites or Canaanites who ever heard [obeyed] the words of God. They are not, even once, referred to as being His sheep.
But the answer of the Judeo-Christian is “That was the Old Testament. We are living in the New. The death of Jesus Christ hadn’t happened yet, and when that occurred a major change happened. One of the major changes was that Jesus’ death was for all races of people from His death forward not backward.”
What? It wasn’t a redemption for anyone who lived prior to His death? Adam? Seth? Noah? Abraham? Isaac? Jacob? Joshua? Samson? Samuel? Joseph? Moses? Judah? David? John the Baptist?; Just to name a few of the millions of God’s people who lived prior to the death of their Kinsman-Redeemer. They were not saved from their sins by the death of Jesus Christ?
