First Half of the Apostle’s Creed:
“I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, And in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried. ____________________;…”
Before the sermon is presented, there is some very important information that needs to be brought to your attention. A prominent banker and lawyer, father of a famous son, was also deeply involved with politics and “philanthropy”. In the era before Roe v. Wade, he sat on the board of Margret Sanger’s Planned Parenthood. This man’s father sat on the board of Planned Parenthood! This man was very, very evil! The man hated our LORD and Savior.
Why is that important? The Roe v. Wade case legalized abortion in the United States, but almost nobody knows that legal abortion was a law formed by eugenicists, to “genetically improve” the population, by “reducing” the population.
But the father of this famous son and the Rockefellers are old friends and partners in the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI). The alliance, which controls major international vaccine programs, has the following as members:
But first, what man was the father of what famous son. The man was Bill Gates, Sr. who was the father of Bill Gates, one of the, if not the richest man in America. The members of the GAVI are:
- The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation,
- The Rockefeller Foundation,
- The International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Associations,
- World Bank,
- World Health Organization (WHO), and
- Many national governments.
The father of Bill Gates established the Gates foundation and passed it on to his son, who changed the name. Under the former name, the foundation funded work in self-spreading vaccines for the purpose of triggering massive die-offs, which was tested successfully on rabbits. The people who developed these “vaccines” erected the Georgia Guidestones AND paid for the development of the COVID-19 vaccinations.
If you don’t believe this story, you probably won’t believe what I will tell you in the rest of the sermon. We are living in the last days of this age.
Some of you here today would probably remember what these four words are. You probably repeated it many times in the other churches that you attended in your youth. This is the first half of what is known as the Apostles’ Creed. I used to have the whole Creed completely memorized. But that was in my younger and middle-aged days.
There is a four-word phrase that is left out of the Creed that is represented by four blanks above.
Does anyone know what the four-worded phrase is? Some of you are correct. Was the Apostle’s Creed true or false regarding this four-worded phrase? There have been millions of Christians who have repeated this Creed in unison in their congregations since it was first written over the last 1500 years. Very few preachers ever preach on this subject. One who has is Pastor Dan Gayman of Missouri.
Modern liturgy and catechism of the Roman Catholic Church, Lutheranism, Anglicanism, Presbyterianism, the Moravian Church, the Methodist Church and the Congregational Church all participate in saying the Apostles’ Creed.
Here are the four-word phrase that is missing from the above Apostles’ Creed: “He Descended Into Hell.”
Lutherans, like the Catholics and Anglicans, use the Apostles’ Creed during their Sacrament of Baptism. They ask three basic questions that refer to the Creed. For example, one of the questions, the second one, says:
“Do you believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He will come to judge the living and the dead?”
Each candidate answers, “Yes, I believe” to all three questions. Thus, they are, in their churches’ mind, qualified to be baptized.
What do the Christians who say this Creed, especially the words, “He descended into hell” believe? There are millions upon millions of Christians in different denominations who say these words about Jesus. There are millions of Christians who have said that they believe these words at their baptism. I said this Creed too, what did I believe these words meant. I confess that I didn’t know for years.
Methodists use the Apostles’ Creed as part of their baptismal rites in the form of an interrogatory addressed to the candidate(s) for baptism and the whole congregation as a way of professing the faith within the context of the Church’s sacramental act. For infants, it is the professing of the faith by the parents, sponsors, and congregation on behalf of the candidate(s); it is the professing of the faith before and among the congregation. For the congregation, it is a reaffirmation of their professed faith.
WHAT DOES THE APOSTLES’ CREED MEAN WHEN IT SAYS, “HE DESCENDED INTO HELL?”
Who is the pronoun “He” referring to? Do all agree that it is Jesus the Christ? The Apostles’ Creed says that “He, referring to Jesus, descended into Hell”
When I was a young boy, I was a member of the Community Baptist Church, in my area of town, that was a part of the American Baptist Convention (they had split off from the Southern Baptist Convention over the issue of slavery). My church consisted of universal Arminians with some of the leadership members of the Freemasons; they celebrate the Mass of Christ and Easter; and they ate unclean foods, because they said that the Law of God was nailed to the cross of Jesus. It, God’s Law, was finished when, God the Son, died on the cross.
It was common to hear a couple of male juveniles in my community yelling at each other, sometimes after a fight, telling each other to, “Go to hell!” But I never dreamt that Jesus went to hell. What would He go to hell for? My Judeo-Christian Church taught that Jesus was the perfect, sinless sacrifice. They told its members that there was no reason for Him to go to hell. Hell was a place where sinners went. Jesus had no sin. Jesus just died on Good Friday and was Resurrected on Easter morning. He did not go to hell. That was what they said. I guess that was one reason that they didn’t say the Apostles’ Creed either.
Psalm 16:9, 10:
9) “Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth; my flesh also shall rest in hope.
(10) For Thou wilt not ____________________ neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.”
There are five consecutive words that are left out of this verse of scripture. What do these five words mean? And what about the rest of the verse. Who is the “Holy One?”
The five-word phrase in Psalms 16:10 is: “Leave MySoul In Hell”
“Thou will not leave my soul in hell.” First, who is the “Thou” who will rescue my soul and whose soul was taken out of hell?
“Thou” refers to Jesus the Christ and “my” refers to King David’s soul? Did David go to hell, too? Why did he go to hell? Was there a different portion of hell, or was it all the same? Could the next phrase be referring to the Christ? “Neither will Thou suffer thy Holy One to see corruption.” “Thou” refers to God the Father who will not have His “Holy One”, His Son, see corruption in Hell.
In his Pentecostal sermon, the Apostle Peter quoted from Psalm 16, verse 9, exploiting this strange scenario about David and his Savior. How David’s soul would not be left in Hell, nor would the Savior be there long enough to see corruption.
29) “Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulcher is with us unto this day.
30) Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
31) He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul __________________, neither His flesh did see corruption.”
There were five words that were left vacant with blanks. The five words left out are the following: “Was Not Left In Hell.”
This raises all kinds of questions. Where did the faithful go, after they died, in the Old Testament? Think about it for a second. They couldn’t go to be with the LORD until their sin debt had been paid in full. But no descendant of Adam had paid their sin debt, as every single one had sinned. And they were unable to pay their debt. They needed a Savior. They were waiting for their Savior.
So, they were waiting for someone who was the same race as they, who had no sin, who would die in place of them. How long were some of them waiting? Some of these people had been dead for over 3,000 years!
Were they in some kind of modern-day “purgatory”? Not exactly. Modern-day purgatory is where the person spends, after his death, suffering for some of his sins. He stays there until he has paid for enough of his sins. The Catholics believe that the death of their Savior was not good enough to pay for all their sins.
But where were the Old Testament saints waiting for the fulfillment of their redemption into eternal life? What if the Savior had never come and died for them, would they still be there? What if their Savior had committed one sin? He couldn’t have been the sacrifice for His people. They would still be in hell. The word “Hades” in Acts 2:27, is simply the Greek word for the Hebrew word, “Sheol.”
In the Old Testament there was little hope of life after death. The standard belief was that the dead maintained a shadowy existence in Sheol. Sheol is not to be confused with the later view of hell, that is, a place of fire and torment. In hell, there were at least two different compartments that were separated by a great gulf that no one could cross.
The Psalmist rises above the common belief in Sheol to a genuine hope for life beyond death. He has enjoyed such an intimate companionship with God in this life that he refuses to believe death can break it. In daring faith, he cries that God will not abandon him in sheol.
When Peter was preaching, David had died, and his tomb was known. But David had been freed from the prison ground just a few days prior. David also mentioned one of his descendants, who was Jesus the Christ. The resurrection of Jesus, of which the Apostles are witnesses, has made actual and real what David hoped for. This proves Jesus to be indeed the Christ or the Messiah.
The proof is the empty tomb of Jesus. The whole Christian movement could have been stopped by their enemies finally and completely by one simple thing. All their enemies had to do was to produce the dead body of Jesus. This they could not do. His tomb was empty!
All arguments that the Resurrection was only wishful thinking on the part of Jesus’ followers fail at this point. The Apostles, like Peter, were witnesses. They saw and listened to the risen Christ and were witnesses of this event.
WHAT WAS PREACHED IN THE OLD TESTAMENT DAYS?
Why is there so little said in churches about this situation? Arminians and Calvinists are “aloof” as to what was preached in the Old Testament days? All, most of them are aware, is the present time only. But that covers just the last 1/3 of Bible history, i.e. the last 2000 years.
When asked about the slaughter of the Canaanites nations, without the sending of a single missionary, they just answer that that was the Old Testament. They don’t realize that our God has enemies. He has the same enemies that we have. We, His covenant people, and our enemies have different fathers; but the same mother. In our culture, the wife takes her husband’s surname (even that is changing). In their culture, the children are said to, not be descended from another father, but are described are coming from the mother. Both seed lines have the same mother, but a very different father. That is a very clever way of not admitting who their real father is. But our Savior knew the truth of who their real father really was:
What did our Savior mean when He said the following words?
42) “Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God, neither came I of Myself, but He sent me.
43) Why do ye not understand My speech? Even because ye cannot hear My word.
(44) Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own, for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
Jesus was talking to a group of individuals who had another father than He had. Who had a different father than we have? He said that their father was the devil and that they would act just like their father does. That is one reason that they cannot hear and understand what He was saying. There are two main seed lines in the Bible, and they are both alive in the world today. They are enemies of each other. There can be no peace until the enemy of God is finally annihilated. One seed line has the Son of God as their father and the other one has His enemy as their father.
WHO POSSESSES THE KEYS OF BOTH HELL AND DEATH?
Where was the soul of Jesus at the end of the first day, the second day, and up until the very moment of His resurrection from the tomb? Did Jesus the Christ “descend into hell” when His body was crucified? Remember, the Apostle’s Creed says that Jesus “descended into hell.” When did He do this?
In Revelation 1:18, Jesus says the He is now, after His death and resurrection, in possession of the keys to both hell and death. We also sang about this in our hymn that we sang today. It was hymn #228, “Rejoice, the Lord Is King.” It was the third stanza, when we all sang,
“His kingdom cannot fail, He rules o’er earth and heav’n;
The keys of death and hell Are to our Jesus giv’n:”
Is this stanza correct? Charles Wesley, an Arminian, wrote the text of this hymn. Does Jesus now possess the keys of death and hell? Is this song just repeating what is found in Revelation 1:18? Were they, the keys of death and hell, given to our Savior, or did He have to take them from someone? Were they given to Him freely, or was there a fight to regain them?
Revelation 1:18: “I am He that liveth, and was dead; and behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”
If Jesus gained control of these keys after His death and resurrection, who did He capture them from? Who possessed these keys before He died? When did this person or entity gain control over them? Why is there so little information given about this time in history?
Was there more to Jesus’ crucifixion than His dying and being buried? He descended into the deep underworld to storm the gates of hell and take the keys from the jailor in hades. Jesus did more than just die for our sins! He also delivered the captive souls of those who had died in a state of a “future” salvation and were being held in a special region of hell called “Abraham’s Bosom.”
The Old Testament saints died in faith, believing in eternal life, yet without having received the Messiah Who would atone for their sins. The had to await the fulfillment of this most gracious sacrifice. Their federal head had to die in place of His sinful kin.
No wonder there were earthquakes, the vail of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom, the rocks rent, graves were opened, and many bodies came up after His resurrection and appeared to many. What did these raised bodies say or do? What happened to them?
They had to wait for His expected arrival. For some, they had to wait, for several thousands of years. That is a long time to be sitting, hoping and waiting for someone to come and let them out! What a joyous time that must have been when they saw the glorified Son of God approaching their locked prison door. What a great time it must have been when the Messiah came and unlocked the prison gates and then led Adam, Abel, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, Jeremiah and many, many others of His kindred to Paradise. The devil thought that by eliminating Jesus he would win, when the direct opposite was true.
The departed souls of all the saints were waiting for someone to free them from their prison in Sheol/Hades. If the Messiah would have never shed His blood, then they would still be there today. No one, of Adam’s family, would have received “eternal life.” No one.
What do you believe David meant when he expressed that the Eternal God “would not leave his soul in hell”? David anticipated that one-day Jesus would be the one who would let, not only his soul, but the souls of all the faithful who were locked in the prison awaiting their day of release.
About one thousand years later, in one of his great sermons under the New Covenant, the Apostle Peter said this about David’s words from Psalm 16.
Peter didn’t believe that Jesus died and then He didn’t do anything for three days and three nights. He didn’t just lie there motionless. He was about His Father’s business. He spent much of His time with the faithful dead, which included David, who He led from “a region of hell” to a special place known as “paradise.” After accomplishing all this, He was Resurrected.
Peter, in my opinion, like David, believed that Jesus went to “war” in the three days between His burial and Resurrection. He went to hell and led the captives out of the prison house to Paradise. And not only that, He captured the keys of death and hell! Who did He take the keys from? Were they given without a battle? What is the significance that He now holds the keys instead of His enemy?
The reason Jesus went to hell was because, He had to retrieve those of His race who died as mortal men. Where did they go? They had to go to a compartment in hell, known as “Abraham’s Bosom”, where they would either eventually:
- Pay for their sins in Hell themselves, or
- Have their federal head pay for their sins and they would have their prison unlocked and they would be set free.
The major difference was that the second Federal Head of the Adamic race, Jesus the Christ, was innocent – the innocent paid for the sins of the guilty. The blood that He shed was for the sins of Adam and all his descendants; past, present and future. The ones that were in “Abraham’s Bosom” couldn’t do anything to merit their sins being paid. They were already dead. All they could do was wait and pray for the major event to happen.
Jesus went to “Abraham’s Bosom” and took the keys from the jailor and opened the locked gates and led all the captives to paradise. Why do most of the churches never tell this story?
No one goes to “Abraham’s Bosom” in hell anymore. No one goes to purgatory, either. The sin debt is already paid in the past, not the future. The New Covenant is a lot better than the Old Covenant.
Jesus also went there to offer salvation to all the covenant people who died before His death on the tree; those who died in the present or in the future would never have to go to this place ever again. His sacrifice was better than what they had in the Old Testament – clean animals. There is no one in this Old Testament “purgatory” now.
Jesus went to hell but was resurrected; therefore, he conquered death;
1 Corinthians15:26: “the last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.”
Because Jesus conquered death, he now holds the keys of death;
Revelation 1:18: “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”
THE FAILURE OF ADAM; THE SUCCESS OF JESUS THE CHRIST
As Adam was the representative of the entire White race, and what he did affected every one of His descendants. Jesus the Christ was the representative of the entire White race too, being the second Adam. He restored to the Adamic race, everything that they had lost in Adam. The prime thing that was restored was “eternal life”. What was restored was not:
- Having a multitude of virgins to populate a given planet;
- Have from seven to 72 virgins if they were successful in a suicide mission for Allah;
- Vanishing away like a bug; etc.;
but having a life with God that never ends.
Adam, and all his descendants eventually died after he sinned; Jesus the Christ gave life back to His people who had lost it. What a glorious and life changing event happened on that famous day!
Where do Jews believe they will go after they die? Secular Jews, like secular non-Jews, usually believe that, at death, they just go into the ground and things are over. Jews with mystical leanings believe in reincarnation.
Traditional Judaism teaches that after death our bodies go to the grave, but our souls go before God to be judged. Facing the only true Judge, we are assigned a place in heaven according to a merit system based on God’s accounting of all our actions and motives. Traditional Jewish thought is that only the very righteous go directly to heaven; all others must be cleansed of residual sin.
According to traditional Judaism, sins that were not cleansed prior to death are removed after death in a place called Sheol or Gehinnom. Some Jews view Gehinnom as a place of torture and punishment, fire and brimstone. Others imagine it less harshly, as a place where one reviews the actions of his or her life and repents for past misdeeds. “Hell” in Judaism is a place where the soul is cleansed or refined. The exceedingly righteous and those who repent before they die can avoid being “cleansed” in hell. This doctrine bears some similarity to the Catholic teaching of Purgatory.
WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THE WAR OF NORTHERN AGGRESSION?
In the late 1890’s, the most history-altering accomplishment would have to be the role which Jacob Schiff (a wealthy Rothschild jew) played. Schiff came to America shortly after the War of Northern Aggression ended (1865). Less than two hundred years before, Schiff’s ancestors had shared a home with the legendary Rothschilds, in Frankfurt, Germany’s Jewish quarter.
Schiff went on to head the firm Kuhn, Loeb & Co. From New York, where he was the foremost Jewish leader from 1880 to 1920. He served as the director of many important corporations, including the:
- National City Bank,
- Equitable Life Assurance Society,
- Wells Fargo, and
- The Union Pacific Railroad.
Schiff, who made his fortune from usury-bearing loans, was the main player behind the “Hebrew Free Loan Society”, an organization which issued usury-free loans only to Jews. This Society still does this today!
From one website,
“The Hebrew Free Loan Society of New York, founded in 1892, is the oldest money gemach in the United States. It spawned similarly named free-loan funds in many other cities, including Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Washington, D.C.; [Cincinnati, Ohio]; and Holyoke, Massachusetts.
Using money provided by contributions, the society provides small, interest-free loans which are paid back in weekly installments. Today, the society provides more than $10 million in interest-free loans on an annual basis while maintaining a loss rate lower than one percent.
The International Association of Hebrew Free Loans (IAHFL) is an umbrella organization for Hebrew Free loan societies, organizations that offer interest-free loans to Jews. There are members around the world, with most in North America. Each member organization has its own rules regarding such things as who may borrow, the maximum loan amount, and the repayment process. However, all offer loans without interest.
Hebrew Free Loan societies (such a society is also known as a Gemach) are based on the biblical injunction that Jews may not charge interest to other Jews in need, found in,
Exodus 22:25: "If you lend money to My people, to the poor among you, do not act towards them as a creditor; exact no interest from them.’”
The IAHFL provides a forum for independent free loan societies to interact, share information, and helps establish new Hebrew Free Loans. There is an annual conference hosted by a member organization. The Jews are a very deceitful bunch, just like their father.
Deuteronomy 23:20: “Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury.: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it.”
So, a jew may not lend to a stranger, only to his brother, i.e. fellow jews. Then, how are everyone on the earth equal? Isn’t there a difference between the races?
WHO IS A DESCENDANT OF JACOB SCHIFF?
Does anyone know about the Jew Jacob Schiff? Does anyone know about who are a few of his relatives that are living now? Does it make any difference to the United States and to the world? Do you think that their descendants would be doing good in the world or evil? There is one descendant that is very important to know.
Was Jacob Schiff and his descendants able to “hear the Word of God.” If they were not, why would we want them in our “Christian” nation? Wouldn’t they eventually attempt to change the culture from Christian to anti-Christian? Wouldn’t we make our immigration laws to prevent them for coming over here?
Kareena Gore Schiff, the daughter of former Tennessee Senator, almost United States President (lost the Florida runoff fiasco to George Bush, or did he?) and “Global Warming con-man” (who has his own jet airplane, six million dollar mansions, many automobiles, yachts, etc.) Al Gore’s daughter, Kareena, is married to Andre Schiff, the great-great-grandson of Jacob Schiff. Now, does that strike you as being somewhat of a traitorous union? Why would that make Al Gore and his daughter evil American citizens? Now you know why Al is for the destruction of the United States and is very pro-Israel. Al Gore now is causing all kinds of problems with Iran. Now you know why?
But until after the War Between the States, in America Jewish influence in America was relatively minor, and the Jewish numbers were very small. So, it was Al Gore’s daughter’s husband’s great-great-grandfather, Jacob Schiff, cajoling of the outgoing United States President, and former New York Governor, Grover Cleveland that prevented the massive wave of Jewish immigration to America from being shut down.
If we were following our God’s laws, we would not be the “melting pot” of the world. The first half of the time of our nation, most of the immigrants were white Christians. Now, it is completely reversed. That is Satanic, not biblical. What happened?
The Immigration Bill of 1897 would have required immigrants to pass a literacy test, something that Russian Jews would not have been able to do. After passing both Houses of Congress, Representatives and Senate, President Cleveland’s veto, induced by Jacob Schiff, saved the day for the incoming Communist and Zionist Jews of Russia.
Jewish historian Lawrence J. Epstein writes:
“It is staggering to consider the alternative course American Jewish history would have taken had this measure passed.”
And conversely, it would be equally staggering to consider the alternative course American history would have taken had the measure passed! Can these individuals who became immigrants to the United States, “hear the WORD of God”? No, they can’t. These “strangers’ [#5237] have their own strange gods and ways of serving them.
John 8:47: “He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.”
Who is of God? Who is not of God? That is the question. Who would want individuals who have no opportunity to “hear God’s Words?” Are Ashkenazi, Sephardic, Edomite, Canaanite and Kenite Jews part of this group who cannot “hear God’s Words.”
To be continued.
Blessed be the LORD God of Israel.
