SCRIPTURE READING: Numbers 31:1-4
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 “Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites: afterward shalt thou be gathered unto thy people.” 3 And Moses spake unto the people, saying, “Arm some of yourselves unto the war, and let them go against the Midianites, and avenge the LORD of Midian. 4 Of every tribe a thousand, throughout all the tribes of Israel, shall ye send to the war.”
(Well, just last week Walt gave us a sermon called “Militant” which was a lesson that every judeo-Christian should hear.)
De-Christianisation of Europe = End of European Civilisation| Elena Konstatinova | Feb. 14, 2022
The Greek Metropolis highlighted that “the de-Christianisation of Europe, like the apostasy of the Western world as a whole, is a dramatic, evolving reality that will also mean the end of European civilisation.”
In addition, a statement of the Office of Heresies and Religions of the Holy Metropolis of Piraeus, said that de-Christianisation would possibly lead to “even the annihilation of European citizens, with the terrible colonization of the old continent by non-religious people, legal and illegal immigrants from Asia and Africa.”
The Metropolis stressed that “both the de-Christianisation of Europe and its colonisation are taking place according to a plan by the dark circles of the new world order in human society.” [END OF ARTICLE]
Well, Christian Identity is orthodox as well, and we totally agree with the assessment of the Bishop. We are in an ancient war; and we very well may be forced to fight for our survival.
The book of Numbers is not concerned so much with narrating the history of the Hebrew people, but rather to emphasize the faithfulness of the God of their fathers. Despite the failures of everyone, from the least of the people to Moses himself, God was faithful to His original promise to Abraham and his descendants. This does not mean that individuals do not experience the consequences of their sin. But it does mean that God’s redemptive purposes cannot be thwarted.
Therefore, the events of the forty years of Israel’s wandering were not important to the book’s purpose. All that the people needed to know in order to obey God and enter the land had already been given to them. The only issue was whether the new generation would believe, after their fathers had not. Israel was going to war.
In the second year after God delivered the Israelites out of the land of Egypt, he instructed Moses to:
Take ye the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, after their families, by the house of their fathers, with the number of their names, every male by their polls; 3 From twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel: thou and Aaron shall number them by their armies. (Num. 1:2-3)
From this census taking, this book received its title — the “Numbers” going to war. Only Israelite men were counted, as further stated in verses 4-16:
And with you there shall be a man of every tribe; every one head of the house of his fathers. 5 And these are the names of the men that shall stand with you: of the tribe of Reuben; Elizur the son of Shedeur. 6 Of Simeon; Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai. 7 Of Judah; Nahshon the son of Amminadab. 8 Of Issachar; Nethaneel the son of Zuar. 9 Of Zebulun; Eliab the son of Helon. 10 Of the children of Joseph: of Ephraim; Elishama the son of Ammihud: of Manasseh; Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur. 11 Of Benjamin; Abidan the son of Gideoni. 12 Of Dan; Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai. 13 Of Asher; Pagiel the son of Ocran. 14 Of Gad; Eliasaph the son of Deuel. 15 Of Naphtali; Ahira the son of Enan. 16 These were the renowned of the congregation, princes of the tribes of their fathers, heads of thousands in Israel. (Num. 1:4-16)
Thus, a year or so after deliverance from Egypt, the men of Israel numbered 603,550 (q.v., Num. 1:46). This did not include males under twenty nor females of any age. A conservative estimate of all Israelites at that time was somewhat over two million. Therefore, the small group of Jacob’s family that entered Egypt a couple of centuries earlier became a rather large nation (this is what we should be doing today). With what might seem a phenomenal growth for two centuries, we must wonder how many Israelites were carried into the Assyrian captivity 700 years later, and into the Babylonian captivity 850 years later.
From the two million at the exodus, it is interesting to speculate about the number of Israelites at the time of Christ, 1400 years later. There must have been thousands of millions somewhere. Yet, many judeo-Christian teachers insist that the 42,360 exiles who returned to Judah from the Babylonian captivity (q.v., Neh. 7:66) were the total of Israelites upon the earth. This kind of teaching has nothing to do with the truth, and everything to do with supporting false doctrine. This false doctrine that all Israelites returned under Nehemiah to Jerusalem were the jews present in Jesus’ day — the chosen people from Abraham. This doctrine demands that theyalone were what remained of Israel.
However, the facts of history prove that millions of Israelites lived somewhere else at the time of Christ. The apostle James wrote, “to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting” (Jas. 1:1). There were many more elsewhere. If they numbered millions at the time of Christ, where and who are they today? We who know the truth realize that they are the Adamic/Israel people of Europe and beyond, representing the Caucasian/Aryan race. Wherever we find these people, we have found the descendants of Abraham, the chosen of God.
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 “Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel…” (Num. 13:1-2)
God did not care that the land was occupied by another race of beings; He was going to give it to Israel. The spies learned that there were descendants of Anak in Canaan; and also Amalekites, Hittites, Jebusites, Amorites and Canaanites.
“And there we saw the giants [Nephilim], the sons of Anak [part of the Nephilim], which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.” (Num. 13:33)
The Nephilim, or giants, are first mentioned in Genesis 6:4, before the flood. These Nephilim, that we believe to be pre-Adamites, were also on the earth after the flood and at the time when the Israelites spied out the land of Canaan, as stated here. This verse ought to worry those who insist that all flesh died in the flood except Noah and the seven. These giants were present before the flood and afterward. Either they were aboard the ark or the flood was not global. If they were on the ark, a greater problem arises. This would mean that the seed of Satan were on the ark. It would not make sense that God’s purpose with the flood was to destroy sin, only to preserve it on the ark. It is easier to accept a non-global flood; for we see the Nephilim alive and well in Numbers 13:33. And, there is no doubt that the seed of Satan has survived to this day.
Just what, or who, is a “stranger?” We usually use the word as someone who is unknown to us, or an outsider. But, in the Bible, the word “stranger” is translated from two different words: as a traveling stranger (H1616 – gare); or, in referring to a racial stranger (H2114 – zur).
And you shall appoint Aaron and his sons, and they shall wait on their priest’s office: and the stranger that comes near shall be put to death. (Num. 3:10)
This command, “the stranger that comes near shall be put to death,” appears four times in the book of Numbers. There are other places where the stranger is passing through and is not killed. Indeed, in some places the stranger is accepted into the nation (of gare). The difference is that one is of the Adamic race and the other is not, but is a corrupted race (of zur).
During Israel’s journey to the Promised Land, the people caused much grief to Moses and God. They rebelled, murmured, complained, and defied Moses’ authority granted him by God. In spite of this, God still led them to the Promised Land. When the king of the Amorites would not allow Israel to pass through their land, a war began, “And Israel took all these cities: and Israel dwelt in all the cities of the Amorites…” (Num. 21:25) God assured them victory.
INTERMARRIAGE AT PEOR
In Numbers 25:1, “the people began to commit harlotry with the women of Moab.” These women were of zur. God told Moses to hang the offenders so “that the fierce anger of the Lord may turn away from Israel” (v. 4). Then Moses ordered the judges of Israel to “slay each of you his men that were joined to Baalpeor” (v. 5).
And, behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought unto his brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight of Moses, and in the sight of all the congregation of the children of Israel, who were weeping before the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose up from among the congregation, and took a javelin in his hand; And he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel. And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand. (Num. 25:6-9)
This was punishment for race mixing; and notice, the huge number of deaths. Truly, this is a terrible sin to God. How can “Christians” today not see this as a grave sin? Blind pastors leading the blind? God also rewarded the priest for his courageous act:
Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace: And he shall have it, and his seed after him, even the covenant of an everlasting priesthood; because he was zealous for his God, and made an atonement for the children of Israel. (Num. 25:12-13)
Phinehas did not call for a divorce, for these relationships were not lawful marriages, being incongruous. Instead, he killed both the man and woman and thus made sure the possible conception did not live either. Under Mosaic law, Phinehas would have been punished for taking the law into his own hands. But God told Moses that he was not to be punished, since he was carrying out God’s will. Does this example mean that today anyone of us is justified in killing miscegenaters? No! Phinehas acted under his authority as priest in the tabernacle, to keep it holy. What Zimri and Cozbi did was an insult, not only to Israel’s God, but to the whole nation as well, and he acted upon this.
Judeo churches fail to accept the whole truth, and fail to acknowledge the meaning of the word zur. They also say that this incident was not about race mixing but only about joining with false gods. But why would there be such a terrible punishment as death over religion? And why was the woman pierced through her belly (an abortion)? The flood came because God’s seed mixed with the pre-Adamic people. Here in Numbers, the Israelites polluted their seed once again. God killed 24 thousand by a plague, ordered the leaders executed and the race-mixers slain. Furthermore, He honored Phinehas and his descendants with a perpetual priesthood.
In revenge for the plague that caused so many deaths, God told Moses to:
Give the Midianites punishment for the wrong they did to the children of Israel: and after that you will go to rest with your people. 3 So Moses said to the people, “Let men from among you be armed for war to put into effect against Midian the Lord’s punishment on them.” (Num. 31:2-3, BBE)
This is encouraging to us who believe in justice being done against the perpetrator of the crime. Our prayer ought to be, may our God once again do the same against the communist hordes who hinder your people today. And furthermore, this includes the lying judeo pastors that encourage interracial marriages among our people by saying “we are all the same inside.”
After Yahweh had given them victory in the war, they counted and found out there wasn’t one man missing. They’d destroyed all of these Midianite cities, had taken all of these captives, and had killed all of these men without a casualty! Impossible in the natural world, but here we’re not dealing in the natural. We’re dealing with God’s intervention. And thus, grateful for the fact that there wasn’t a single casualty among them, and all twelve thousand returned from the battle; the captains brought unto the Lord an offering of the gold, silver and brass they had taken as booty, to the Lord in thanksgiving for his preservation of their troops in battle.
But, there was a problem:
And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, with the captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, which came from the battle. 15 And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive? 16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD. 17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. 18 But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves. (Num. 31:14-18)
Moses thought that his orders were clear. He was angry because they kept the women alive, the same race of women that caused the problem at Peor; and he ordered them to kill all of the baby boys and only save those women who were virgins, and the little girls, and they were to become slaves to the Israelites. Verse 35 of this chapter says that part of the spoil was 32,000 women who had not known a man intimately.
So even in this severe and cruel judgment, there was mercy to the most innocent of the Midianite race. God used the nation of Israel as His instrument of judgment against these people, whose practices had sunk so low that it was necessary for judgment to fall. That is why God ordered their extermination, to destroy them lest they be a polluting influence upon His people, by mingling with the holy seed, and to protect His own children from Canaanite culture.
Although we condemn the anti-Christ racial practices advocated by lying judeo-Christian preachers and teachers of the modern world, we might also place some of this condemnation upon the political and social leaders who have promoted race mixing at every turn. Surely, the equality and equity madness, along with Critical Race Theory, will provoke our God to extreme jealousy once again. The sin is the same and the result will be the same — mass death. NOTE: The death rate in America is increasing, not just in spite of the Covid vaccine (clot shot), but because of it (with its immunity- destroying ability) as well. And on top of this, we have all kinds of violent acts of crime all across the country. Esau’s dream of killing Jacob is well underway. Could this be a part of the overall judgment of our God?
Phinehas did not deal only with an individual’s sin, but with the national sin of Israel. Zimri, the Israelite, got a spear through his body as a symbol of the sin of the whole nation. Remember, just a couple years earlier God had revealed to Israel His new name, Yahweh, which denoted His relationship with the corporate family, the nation of Israel. Whereas Zimridied for his sin, 24 thousand died for the national sin of Israel. The sin was the same in each case, but Yahweh treated it individually and corporately with death. What will it be next time, 24 million? Everyone will pay for their involvement with sin. “God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.” (Ps. 7:11)
It is significant that one person took matters into his own hands, such as Phinehas. Sometimes history presents such a condition that a person with the mind of God will take the act of vigilantism. Such was the case with Kyle Rittenhouse in the streets of Kenosha. Someday in the near future, a similar situation will arise, including mass death, and a conscientious Israelite will discern the mind of God in the matter and act upon the truth he knows in God. There will be no court trial, no judge, no executioner, but the judgment of Yahweh will fall; and the “plague” will end.
The Bible refers to stiff-necked Israelites. Today they are not only stubborn, but stupid and blinded by lying media. Again, it will take mass death to awaken these people. This will be God’s method of cleansing His family for a new age in the kingdom. All error and disobedience will be left behind in death; so it was in the flood and in the wilderness. Sometimes we feel that people can be re-educated to change their minds. But this is futile in most cases because of a person’s false belief system. Education and facts will have no effect: “a person convinced in his will, is of the same opinion still.” However, they will be cured of their unbelief in the grave.
In chapter 26 of Numbers, God again told Moses to take a census. All the males twenty years old and upward were counted. The count this time came to 601,730, which was 1820 less than the last census. This would reflect the number who were killed in the harlotry of chapter 25. This census was taken to base the division of the Promised Land among the tribes. Moses was told of his death; and that he would not experience the triumph of entering the land.
But before Moses should die, the Almighty had one more job for him to do. “Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites: afterward shalt thou be gathered unto thy people.” (Num. 31:2) So Moses sent 1,000 armed men from each tribe, 12,000 altogether to bring war to the Midianites;
And Moses sent them to the war, a thousand of every tribe, them and Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, to the war, with the holy instruments, and the trumpets to blow in his hand. (Num. 31:6)
They killed every male, the five kings of Midian, and Balaam. As related earlier, the women and children were brought to Moses, who was surprised that the warriors had spared them. “Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor… (Num. 31:16)
God’s vengeance is fierce! One can only speculate as to how many thousands of Midianites were killed because some of the women seduced the holy seed of God. One must wonder about the mass death that will soon take place among the heathen in our land for their wrongdoings against the family of Yahweh.
This is the “doctrine of Balaam” our Lord warned about in Revelation 2:14:
But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
Jude and Peter also held an opinion against this doctrine. It has to do with fornication or whoring after false gods. Israel is described as being a whore (a sexual term) when worshipping strange gods. The event that leads to the worship of false gods is a sexual relationship with one of another race (by definition, fornication).
Jesus described the actions in the verse above as a stumbling block to the children of Israel; and He said that some among these hold a doctrine that is false. Such is the case with all of mainstream churchianity today. Only the very few true Christian assemblies hold to the true biblical Christianity, which is opposed to the “doctrine of Balaam.”
Israel had spent 40 years in the wilderness, traveling from one place to another as recorded in chapter 33. The men of Israel had so angered the Lord when they refused to go into the Promised Land from Kadesh that God allowed all these men from twenty years upward to die in the wilderness. They were prevented from seeing the land because they did not follow God fully. Only Joshua and Caleb went in because they were willing to possess the land when at Kadesh.
This principle God will use again at the end of the age — those who refuse to obey our Lord must perish, thus preventing their error from entering the kingdom age. That terrible error and sin, of taking strange flesh, which brought on the flood and the plague of Numbers 25, is the greatest corporate sin of Israel in our day. The wrath of Yahweh will strike as before; the non-Israelites will be slain, as will Israelites who have shared in the guilt of strange flesh, whether by deed or by active or passive consent. We stand at the threshold of the kingdom, just as Israel did in Numbers 33. Yahweh gave them their instructions for conquering Canaan:
When ye are passed over Jordan into the land of Canaan; 52 Then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and destroy all their pictures, and destroy all their molten images, and quite pluck down all their high places: 53 And ye shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land, and dwell therein: for I have given you the land to possess it. (Num. 33:51-53)
Defile not therefore the land which ye shall inhabit, wherein I dwell: for I the LORD dwell among the children of Israel. (Num. 35:34)
Who is supreme here in this kingdom? The corporate family of God, and the LORD God Himself. By divine decree, all foreigners were driven out, and all vestiges of false gods were destroyed. You mean we cannot let them stay in the land and we can co-exist together? No! Because it is not just about the false religion of these people (as judeo-Christians like to assert), but about their particular race. That is the foremost issue, for if they remained within the nation, they would soon intermarry and be a snare to Israel. God’s people were cleansed, as was the land they were to occupy, and they were not to defile it again.
Today’s movement of racial equality, racial integration, interracial “marriage” (so-called; for it can never be legitimized, as it is fornication), and anti-discrimination laws are the modern equivalent of Balaam’s doctrine.
The racial context of the book of Numbers is clear; and the kingdom of God on earth is sure.
