Thorns in Your Sides Part 2


Sermon Notes of Pastor Don Elmore

May 24, 2015

Scripture Reading: Joshua 23:11-13

11) “Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the LORD your God.

12) Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of  these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you:

13) Know for a certainty that the LORD your God will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes,  until ye perish from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you.”

Are these descendants of these people still living in the world today:  the covenant people of God, Israel and their enemy, the Canannites?  If the Israelites married any of the remnant of the nations that use to occupy the land that they now lived in; they would become snares, traps, scourages, and thorns to them.  There is not one good thing said about any Canaanite in the Bible.

Who are they?   They are not called Canaanites today.  

But first, a little explanation of what happened in my life.

When I was a young man, a Judeo-Christian, not knowing very much of what was in the Bible and what was happening right before my eyes in the world:  I did one thing right.  I decided to read the Bible from cover to cover once a month.  I believed that that would give me a view of what the Bible was about.  It did.  And it changed my life forever.

After reading the Bible through, for six times in six months, I noticed something that was hard for me to digest.  I noticed that it was the Jews who were constantly attempting and in many cases succeeding in murdering Jesus Christ and many of His followers!  What a shock!  The people who the Protestant church that I belonged to had told me was the “covenant people of God” were the ones who  had hated and murdered  the followers of Jesus Christ!

This lead me to the book of John and verses like 8:44: “Ye are of your father, the Devil, and the lust of your father you will do.” 

Who was this that Jesus was talking to?   It greatly disturbed me, up to this time, as to why anyone would hate Jesus?  What did He do to make anyone mad enough to kill him and His followers.  He was kind, healed people, and offered Himself as a sacrifice for the sins of the world.  But it was the message that He taught:  What message was that:  It was “The covenant message.”

If you were a mixed-breed person would you like the “covenant message?”  The whole world is fast becoming a mongrelized world; with all races living in almost every civilized country in the world.  Miscegenation and diversity is counted as one of the world’s greatest achievements; instead of one of the world’s worse events.   We are rapidly approaching the end times; may the God of Israel once again show the world who He truly loves!

World War 2

Almost every history book will inform the reader that World War 2 began two days after Germany invaded Poland.  Germany invaded Poland to enable the Germans who lived there to have an opportunity to get out of the country.  On September 3, 1939 Britain and France declared War against Germany. 

In my last sermon, it was taught that the Jews of the world declared War against Germany six years earlier.  This was a bit of information that I had never heard of before.  The Jews of the entire world declared war on Germany in 1933; World War 2 began, most historians say, not on this date but not until 1939.

The World Jewish Congress and the Jewish Federation waged an economic war against Germany and  Jews all over the world joined together to boycott all German goods.  This article appeared on March 24, 1933.  Hitler was just elected to office.

Jews of the world declared War against Germany: Jews wage war on Germany 6 years prior to start of WW2 

    1. If the Jews had declared War on Germany, and they did 6 years before the date that most historians say that the war started, what was wrong with Germany putting them, their self-mandated enemy, into concentration camps?  Didn’t we (the United States) do the same to Japanese residents in the same war?

      Here is a sign on a car telling of the Jews’ war with Germany:

      Notice the six point star in the upper left hand corner of the following poster. Its message was sponsored by the Jewish War Veterans of the United States.

      1933 poster promoting jewish economic war against Germany

      International Jewry formally declared its “holy war” against Germany long before Hitler began restricting the rights of Germany’s Jews. Jewry’s war declaration against Germany was issued by Samuel Untermeyer of the World Jewish Federation who said, in the New York Times of August 7, 1933; that it would be means of an “economic boycott that will undermine the Hitler regime and bring the German people to their senses by destroying their export trade on which their very existence depends.”

      The Toronto Evening Telegram, February 26, 1940, quoted Rabbi Maurice L. Perlzweig of the World Jewish Congress telling a Canadian audience that “the World Jewish Congress has been at war with Germany for seven years.”  The Jewish desire for war was admitted to by Rabbi Felix Mendelsohn in the Chicago “Sentinel” of October 8, 1942 where he states: “The Second World War is being fought for the defense of the fundamentals of Judaism.” 

    2. If the Germans had most of their men fighting in the war, who was employed in their industries?  In America, women and older men filled the capacity in industry; in Germany it was the women, children and older people of Germany along with people from the concentration camps.  In Auschwitz, the people were employed by I. G. Farben Chemical Company.  If it were a death camp, how did people live there for over four years and survive?

      Below is a map of the Jewish propaganda on the Holocaust. Notice all the camps that were set up solely for the murder of Jews was in the country of Poland. If 6 million Jews were gassed in these 6 concentration camps, they had to average almost 640 Jewish gassings a day in each of the six camps for 4 years!

    3. If it is true that 6 million Jews were murdered at the German concentration camps, how are there so many survivors? 

      In 1941 there were about 9 million Jews living in Europe; by May 1945 the Nazis had murdered six million of them.  One-and-a-half million of these were children. 

      The Germans murdered 2/3 of all the Jews who were living in Europe?  That would mean that there were 3 million Jews left in Europe, minus all the causalities from the War? 

      How many Jews died from disease, bombs and bullets as well as from natural causes?  There were Jewish soldiers as well as civilians:  2 million?  That would leave 1 million Jews in Europe.

      That would leave the Jewish people who fled to other countries; how many were these:  1 million.  That would mean that there were 0 Jewish in Europe after the Second World War.

      Notice how the plaques have decreased the number of Jews who were gassed at Auschwitz from 6 million to 4 million to 1 ½ million:

      Notice how the death of Jews at Auschwitz was reduced to lower than a million; 1/6 of the original amount:

      How many Jews were murdered in each country and what percentage of the pre-war Jewish population did they constitute?

      Statistics of Jews killed by country in the Holocaust

      How long can the jews perpetuate the holocaust myth?

      How many soldiers have the United States lost in death by war since its founding over 200 years ago?  They have lost about 1.5 million soldiers.  Compare that to the number of Jewish people who were killed in the gas chambers in Poland:  over 4 times as many. 

      Statistics of Americans who have died in war

    4. God’s law states that it is a sin to blame a people for something that they did not do.

      If a person is innocent of doing something, is it okay for a Christian to blame him?  The question is:  Did the Nazi’s actually execute by the gas chambers up to six million Jews?

      According to John Rushdoony:  “The evils were all too real:  even greater is the evil of bearing false witness concerning them, because that false witness will produce an even more vicious reality in the next upheaval.  Men are now ‘reconciled’ to a world where millions are murdered, or said to be murdered.  What will be required in the way of action and propaganda next time?”

      In 1941, Theodore Kaufman said in his popular Jewish book, “Germany Must Perish!”   That all Germans must be totally sterilized which would finally eliminate the Germany nation forever.  What did the Germans do to deserve this kind of punishment—the elimination of its race? 

      Germany Must Perish:  Jews would eliminate the Germany nation forever

      You most likely have never heard of Theodore Kaufman and his dreams of genocide. It was a Jew (Kaufman), not a German, who (in 1941) proposed a “final solution” to kill all German Gentiles.

      Jews throughout the world often screamed that National Socialist Germany was intent on ruling the world. The Jewish-controlled United States press collectively referred to Germans as war-like barbarians and “Huns”. The Jew Theodore Kaufman accused the Germans of pursuing a policy of world dominion and therefore advocated their complete annihilation and the territorial dissection of their nation. Kaufman chillingly wrote:

      “For it must be patent by now that while all the Germans may not approve of the means being employed by the Nazis in achieving German-world-dominion, they are practically unanimous in agreeing that that goal must, now or in the future, be definitely achieved by Germany.  Were the German nations to win this war, not one German would hesitate laying claim to a share in the loot … Yet defeat will on no account erase their desire to conquer and rule the world. There is only one way to frustrate such a desire: the goal of world-dominion must be removed from the reach of the German and the only way to accomplish that is to remove the German from the world!”

      And it is still happening.  Are we blaming the wrong people when we say that the Arabs are responsible for bringing down the Twin Towers and Building 7 in New York City, and the destroyed part of the Pentagon Building in Washington, D.C.? 

      Are we blaming the wrong person for the 26 murders in Sandy Hook when we didn’t see any evidence of any of the murders?

    5. If the Jews declared War against Germany, they said that they were going to completely destroy the German people.  Did they?

Chaim Weizmann, the late chairman of the World Zionist Organization and first president of Israel, made clear the genocidal Jewish intention to destroy Germany. In a letter to British Prime Minister Winston Churchill dated September 10, 1941, Weizmann spoke about how the Jews of the United States pulled the nation into the first World War, and he promised they could do it again, given that Britain fulfilled Zionist demands regarding Palestine. Weizmann wrote: “It has been routinely acknowledged by British statesman that it was the Jews who, in the last war, effectively helped to tip the scales in America in favour of Great Britain. They are keen to do it — and may do it — again.”

In a Speech on December 3, 1942, less than a month after my birth, in New York, Weizmann stated: “We are not denying and are not afraid to confess that this war is our war and that it is waged for the liberation of JewryStronger than all fronts together is our front, that of Jewry. We are not only giving this war our financial support on which the entire war production is based, we are not only providing our full propaganda power which is the moral energy that keeps this war going. The guarantee of victory is predominantly based on weakening the enemy forces, on destroying them in their own country, within the resistance. And we are the Trojan horses in the enemy’s fortress. Thousands of Jews living in Europe constitute the principal factor in the destruction of our enemy. There, our front is a fact and the most valuable aid for victory.”

Ilya Grigoryevich Ehrenburg:  "There is nothing more amusing than a heap of German corpses"In one leaflet entitled “Kill,” Ilya Grigoryevich Ehrenburg (January 27, 1891 - August 31, 1967) incited the simple Russian soldier to treat the Germans as subhuman. The final paragraph concludes:

“The Germans are not human beings. From now on, the word ‘German’ is the most horrible curse.  From now on, the word ‘German’ strikes us to the quick. We have nothing to discuss. We will not get excited. We will kill. If you have not killed at least one German a day, you have wasted that day ... If you cannot kill a German with a bullet, then kill him with your bayonet. If your part of the front is quiet and there is no fighting, then kill a German in the meantime ... If you have already killed a German, then kill another one - there is nothing more amusing to us than a heap of German corpses. Don't count the days, don't count the kilometers.  Count only one thing: the number of Germans you have killed. Kill the Germans! ...  -- Kill the Germans! Kill!” 

This is typical of the steady diet of pathological hate fed to millions of Soviet troops by this Jew, safely ensconced far from the front.  But it wasn’t only the ordinary German soldier Ehrenburg was talking about, whom he accused of the very atrocities the Communists were themselves committing.

Ehrenburg’s incendiary writings were, in fact, a prime motivating factor in the orgy of murder and rape against the civilian population that took place as Soviet troops rampaged into the heart of Europe.  Appealing to the lowest, most subhuman instincts of this Bolshevik horde, he reiterated his genocidal message:

“Kill! Kill! In the German race there is nothing but evil; not one among the living, not one among the yet unborn but is evil!  Follow the precepts of Comrade Stalin.  Stamp out the fascist beast once and for all in its lair!  Use force and break the racial pride of these German women.  Take them as your lawful booty. Kill! As you storm onward, kill, you gallant soldiers of the Red Army.”

The crowning achievement of Ehrenburg’s career came on December 22, 1944, when this hate-crazed fiend became the first person to mention the kabbalistic figure of Six Million alleged Jewish victims of National Socialism, and then proceeded to introduce that figure into Soviet propaganda.  

Jew was singled out as a threat to the established order of society?

What did the Jews do in the early part of the church’s history?  What does the Bible say about this period of time?  What did I find as I read the Bible through each month?  After the death of Jesus Christ, there were five major persecutions of followers of Him in the first 12 chapters of the book of Acts.

First Persecution

Acts 4:1-22

A man born a cripple, was placed near the gates of the Jerusalem temple every day to beg for alms.  On a certain occasion, as Peter and John were about to enter, the poor, helpless creature stretched forth a dirty, bony arm and pleaded for a coin.

“Silver and gold have I none,” said Peter, “but such as I have give I thee:  In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.”

Instantly he jumped to his feet “walking, and leaping, and praising God.”  The man was more than forty years of age and had therefore been a familiar object on the streets of Jerusalem for years.

When the report of this healing reached the treacherous Jews, their minds got busier than ever.  They began devising new plans for putting an end to everything that was being done in the name of Christ.

Their first thought was to deny that the miracle had been performed.  Then they realized that this was useless because the man was so well known.  At that moment he was rejoicing, praising God, testifying to his deliverance and telling everybody what had happened.  “And we cannot deny it,” mourned the Jews who would have lied to discredit the story if it would have advanced their selfish purposes.

The members of the Sanhedrin came together and the little band of Christians were forced to appear before them.  A torrent of abuse was turned loose upon the trembling group until finally Peter, filled with the Spirit of God’s holiness (Holy Spirit), became bold.  As spokesman for the group, he made it clear that the Christians proposed to obey God rather than man.

Had it not been that the mobs were at that time favorable toward the apostles because of the miracle that had been performed, the Jewish leaders would have no doubt put the entire body of believers to death.

Second Persecution

Acts 5:17-41

“Many signs and wonders” were wrought among the people by the apostles.  All manner of diseases were healed.  But the Jews could see no good in any of this relief of human suffering because it did not come through the narrow, selfish channels of their bigoted nationalism.

The Jewish leaders agreed to the use of physical weapons in their attempt to destroy spiritual power, the same as Jewish Communists are doing today in trying to exterminate Christianity by killing Christians.

The Jews “laid hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison.  But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth.”  Next morning when the Jewish senate convened and messengers were sent to bring the apostles for trial, it was discovered that, unknown to the jailers, they had escaped and were at that very hour preaching in the area of the temple.

Jerusalem was in turmoil by this time.  Had the officials dared, they would have killed the Christians without a legal trial.  When the saints appeared before the tribunal they were told that they had been previously warned not to teach in the name of Jesus.  “You have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us,” said the high priest.

From this, it is evident that the apostles had been denouncing the Jews and charging them with the responsibility of Christ’s death.  Here we find the leaders complaining about His blood being upon them, forgetting apparently their previous utterance:  “His blood be on us, and on our children.”

Peter finally dared to shout:  “The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom you slew and hanged on a tree.”  We read that this “cut them to the heart.”  Who was this upstart that he should have the audacity to rebuke them!

When they were almost ready to demand the lives of the apostles, Gamaliel, a tolerant member of the Sanhedrin, lifted a warning voice.  If the new group was not of God, he declared that it would come to nought and fall by its own weight.  “But if it be of God, you cannot overthrow it; lest haply you are found even to be fighting against God.” 

The result was, instead of killing the apostles, they were given another warning and a severe flogging.  This form of punishment was cruel, brutal, cowardly and unjust.  But even though bitter and painful to the flesh, it caused rejoicing to the spirits of the faithful few.  As the wounds healed they “rejoiced that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His name.”

The only way the Jews had of striking at the Christ Whom they hated was to injure His followers.  They availed themselves of this opportunity.

Third Persecution

Acts 7:54-60 

The blood of martyrs began flowing in the same year that the Lord ascended into heaven.  The Jews’ first victim after Christ was a man named Stephen, whose primary crime was belief in the deity of the Son of God.  This was regarded as blasphemy.

The story of the murder of Stephen by stoning is, after Christ’s crucifixion, one of the saddest in all the history of Christianity.  When Stephen was arrested, he entered into a discussion of Israelitish history and closed by rebuking his judges for their hypocrisy.  He declared that their devotion to God, the Law and the Temple, was hypocritical.  He accused them of murdering the Son of God.

Stephen laid bare the full measure of their guilt.  The blood of the Son of God was upon their heads; they had ignored the miracles that testified of His deity; they had rejected the Pentecostal happening of the new believers. 

As he spoke, the Jewish leaders yelled and screamed to drown his words.  They childishly stopped their ears with their fingers to avoid hearing the truth about themselves.  Like serpents, they hissed their poison at the courageous Christian.  They rushed upon him with one accord.

In their madness they dragged him outside the city, removing their outer garments as they ran.  With stones they pelted the body of the first Christian martyr until his life ebbed away.  Saul of Tarsus watched as he held the coats of the murderers.  This execution was illegal because the matter was not submitted to the Roman Governor.

Fourth Persecution

Acts 8:1-3 

The first three persecutions were spontaneous and did not result from deliberate planning.  But the spilling of Stephen’s blood seemed to whet the Jewish appetite for more Christian suffering.  The sight of blood, the appearance of the first deadly wound in the flesh of a believer, seemed to stir all their criminal instincts.

They came to the conclusion that an organized effort was imperative if the new Faith was to be put down.  The irony of this organized attempt on the part of the Jews to blot the cause of Christ out of existence, was the fact that their own ring leader, Saul of Tarsus, got gloriously converted on the road to Damascus and became the greatest missionary and evangelist the world has ever known.

But in later years, Paul never forgave himself, nor was he ever able to erase the memories of his early attacks upon the small group of Christians, which he came to love so dearly and for which he finally sacrificed his life.

Fifth Persecution

Acts 12:1-19

The next spasm of Jewish terror, mentioned in the early part of the book of Acts, was directed against Peter.

Listen to what was said in the middle of the second century:  “The Jews were behind all the persecutions of the Christians.  They wandered through the country, everywhere hating and undermining the Christian faith.” 

And that “The Jews formed the breeding ground of all anti-Christian action.”

We read that Herod the king (a Jew) has James put to death by the sword (beheading) because of Jewish influences being brought to bear upon his throne.  This ruler was the grandson of Herod the Great (a Jew) who murdered the babes of Bethlehem after the birth of Christ. 

No details are given in the Scriptures about the killing of James.  And yet underneath the simple statement, a deep anguish and sympathy may be felt.  Then the next verse shows that the wicked king had planned to make away with Peter in the same way.

“And because he saw it pleased the Jews he proceeded further to take Peter also.”


The Jews have been hating and killing Christians starting with the murder of Jesus Christ, then Stephen, the apostle James, the apostle Peter, the apostle Paul, and virtually all the other twelve disciples except for John, who was exiled to Patmos for the rest of his life.

The goal of the Jews in Jesus’ time was the extermination of Christ, Christians AND Christianity.  Over the past 2,000 years, their goals have remained the same – to exterminate Christ, all Christians and Christianity.

It is true that the Jews, throughout history, have been thrown out of almost every country in Europe.  But one must ask “Why?”  A diligent study of history will reveal that they were thrown out for good reason.  Each time they enter a country, they infiltrate, attempt to take over the government, practice usury, bring degeneracy to the culture, and are masters of deception.  They do not build a culture, they parasitize a culture and destroy it.

The Russian Bolshevik revolution was Jewish.  Virtually ALL the leaders of the communist revolutionaries were Jewish.  The Jews slaughtered approximately 100 million Christians in Russia proper and the Ukraine – many of them ethnic Germans - by outright murder and planned famines.   Hitler invaded Russia to try to save them. 

Did Germany try to eliminate all Jews; or was it the other way around?  Did Jews try to eliminate all Germans?  At the concentration camps the Jewish press admits that the Germans had, beside Jews, placed many millions of other people were also imprisoned, enslaved and murdered. These people included those with mental or physical disabilities, homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, trade unionists, political opponents, Poles and Soviet prisoners of war.  How big were these concentration camps that housed over 10 million people?

The concentration camps must have been very large to house all of these millions of non-Jews and almost all the Jews of Europe.  Some of the camps must have had close to 1 million inhabitants.   What very, very large cities these camps would have had to be!

It is the Christians who are the target of Jewish hate!  Not the other way around!

Never, in the history of the world, have Jews been “victims.” There have been times when they have “reaped what they have sown” because of their collective behavior in the nations in which they have lived, but they have never been “victims” no matter how much the Jewish-controlled media portrays them that way.

A diligent study of history proves conclusively that the JEWS have never been the victims of persecution – by Christians or anyone else. 

There is a lot more to be discussed.  To be continued.

Blessed be the LORD God of Israel.
