There were several articles in the Cincinnati Enquirer that were disturbing to me since my last sermon. The first one was from the June 27, 2020 Sports page, in an article entitled, “CLUBHOUSE ALLIES; Reds' pitchers use platforms for Black Lives Matter support:
Cincinnati Reds' pitcher Matt Bowman doesn’t have a large social media platform. He has a little more than 2,000 followers on Twitter, with most of his tweets from four or five years ago.
With people protesting around the country for racial equality, Bowman felt it was a moment when he needed to speak out. He was inspired by social media posts from outspoken Black players around the league and wanted to publicly show support for them. He reached out to teammate Jesse Biddle, who had nearly 9,000 followers on Instagram, and a few other players about matching donations to social justice charities, like the NAACP, Equal Justice Initiative and the Southern Poverty Law Center, along with a clean-up fund in Minneapolis…”
Naomi, her husband and two married sons, had died. They had been living in the “country or land of Moab” for over 10 years.The Moabites had been living there but had been driven out for over 300 years. There were no Moabites who were living there at this time.
Her two sons, Mahlon and Chilon, were married to Ruth and Orpah. What were they to do after they were all widowed? The famine, the reason they had left Bethlehem, was over. Naomi suggested that they return to Bethlehem. But only Ruth said that she would return to Bethlehem with her, while her sister-in-law would go elsewhere. Where did she go? Did she find someone else to marry?
Let’s reason together for a little bit. Does the Bible depict two different seed lines that hate one another? Does the Bible tell of two different seed lines that have a different destiny? Does the Bible instruct us that these two different seed lines are enemies of each other? Let’s consider one place where this is very true.
Let’s look at the individuals who were living in Judea at the time of Christ. Were they all Israelites? We’re not talking about Galilee or Samaria, but Judea. Were all the Judaeans of that time Israelites? Were they all of one seed or were they of two seeds?
Let’s look at which of the three sections (Galilee, Samaria or Judea) the following took place:
Has does Israel's enemies control the minds of the people of God? They buy and control the media. For the last two hundred years they have done this with much success. In this sermon I give some examples of what has happened because they have controlled of the media.
In Richard Hoskin’s book, “In the Beginning… The story of The International Trade Cartel”, Chapter 4, it takes the first four pages talking about a town in Virginia. It was a town that was in Buckingham County on the banks of the James River. The James River was named after King James I of England as was Jamestown, Virginia, the first settlement of the English in 1607.
What kind of town was this, that Richard Hoskins went to see? On page 31 of his book, “In the Beginning”, he stated that:
“…there were 750 acres in Yogaville, and perhaps 60 Swamis (teachers), both male and female. Private interest have [has] bought 250 acres across the road which are in the process of being subdivided into building lots. It was a town built for the Hindus.”
When did the Jews immigrate to Britain for the first time?
What city did they migrate from?
There is no record of Jews in Britain in Roman times. There had been none of them who ever lived there for a thousand years after the birth of Jesus the Christ. There were Jews in Spain, France and Germany; but none in Britain. And that was the way that it was. The Saxons in England retained their freedoms from the Roman Catholic feudal system and its tax system.
So, when and how did the Jews come to live in Britain? Was it by war? Was it by immigration? Was it by invitation? And in what city did they used to live before they came to Britain?
There are wolves in the United States Senate, House of Representatives, Supreme Court and White House. There are wolves that are CEOs, ball players, music stars, television anchors, journalists, “Christian” leaders, actors, doctors, bankers, etc. The wolves are having a feast eating the sheep. They won’t stop until all the sheep are gone. The wolves are getting very obese.
What did Jesus the Christ speak about to His believers during the forty days between His resurrection and His ascension? Wouldn’t the topic be one of great importance? What did our Savior discuss with select Israelites for forty days before He went to be with His Father? The Bible tells us the answer. This verse says that after His resurrection, He spoke about things that were pertaining to the “kingdom of God.” He didn’t talk about Roman oppression of Judea.
Almost every church in the world today says very little about the kingdom of God. It is missing from their services. What they have substituted is the preaching of “salvation” to each lost person in the earth. They are off the tracks. They are teaching that which is missing in the Bible texts.
The United States, as it is now, is not the kingdom of God. First, it doesn’t have a king. Every KINGdom must have a king, or it is not a kingdom. It is something else.
The Stuart Kings of England were terrible. They were horrible. King James I; his son, Charles I; his son, Charles II; and Charles II’s brother, James II were the lowest of the low. James I was the first king of the Stuarts, who was not just king over three countries, but ruled with two different parliaments in three different nations which had three different prominent religions:
Scotland had just turned Presbyterian,
England was Pope-less Catholic; called Episcopalian in the United States; the Church of England or Anglican in England, and
Ireland was predominately Catholic.
Presbyterian was from the bottom up; the people chose the clergy. The Church of England was from the top down; the clergy was appointed by the king. Catholicism was from the top down; the clergy was appointed by the Pope’s staff.
A notable event happened in the early days of King James I’s reign. On November 5, 1605, a group of English Catholics attempted to assassinate the king and destroy Parliament in the Palace of Westminster. However, the Gunpowder Plot was exposed and prevented, and the convicted plotters were hanged, drawn, and quartered.
Here are two competing grains in these two verses: tares and wheat. One is evil, the other is good. The instructions given to the gatherers is to gather the tares first, bind them in bundles and burn them; but the wheat gather them into His barn. But they had to wait until the proper time—the harvest. Why? So, the reapers could tell them apart. Notice, the tares are to be taken first.
This was God’s warning to the Israelites through his general Joshua that if they let the Canaanites remain in the land of Palestine, they would no longer be driven out from before them. They would be snares, traps, scourges and thorns to the Israelites. The enemy would provide the harm that would result from Israel’s disobedience to keep them living in the land that they were promised.
DOES AMERICA HAVE THE BEST GOVERNMENT IN THE WORLD?
Compiled from the sermon notes of Pastor Don Elmore
January 5, 2020
Scripture Reading: 2 Samuel 1:13-16
Who was the stranger that David had killed for testifying that he had slain King Saul, the LORD’s anointed? He was an Amalekite. Who was an Amalekite? He was a descendant of Amalek, grandson of Esau, who was part of the Canaanites. So, it was the descendant of Esau and the Canaanites who said that he murdered the LORD’s anointed—the king of Israel. Remember, this was something that the future king refused to do, even when he had the opportunity.
In a recent speech, Nancy Pelosi said some confusing things. For example, she said that America had formed a new government, a republic, starting with “We the people.” Then she said, “For centuries Americans have fought and died to defend democracy for the people. But, very sadly now, our founders’ vision of a republic is under threat from actions from the white house.”
And it wasn’t just the speaker of the House. It was many of the Democrats, when they spoke they said in one breathe that we were a republic and in another that we were a democracy. The two words were used interchangeably, and the meaning was the same.
But they are not interchangeable. Benjamin Rush (signor of the Declaration of Independence) said that “a democracy was the devil’s own government.”
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?
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.
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...
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 changingsabbaths, 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.”
