32) “It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.”
Ephesians 2:11, 12:
11) “Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles [10 tribes of the northern kingdom of nations—House of Israel] in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision [the three tribes of the kingdom of the South—House of Judea] in the flesh made by hands;
12) That at that time ye [House of Israel] were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world.”
The big news this past week is the hurricane that hit the Carolinas. Hurricane “Florence” hit land on Friday, but the unusual thing was that it moved so slow. It traveled Southwest at 2-3 m.p.h. all day yesterday. A person can walk faster than that speed.
With its slow movement, it dumped almost four feet of rain and bashed structures with wind for days. The big problem is the downpour of rain for up to four days. As the storm moves slowly to the west it is dumping more and more rain to the right-side of the eye. The streams and rivers are flooding, and with the winds blowing the ocean inwards, the water can’t flow out, causing the flooding to be more severe.
There are towns that are completely underwater. You must use a boat to travel in the streets of the neighborhood in order to get around. Water is at its highest in history. Interstate highways are flooded. Supplies will be very difficult to transport into the flooded areas. Eventually the storm will turn to the north and being pushed by the winds it will go to Pittsburgh and then toward New York and then into the Atlantic Ocean once again. There it will die.
But the Carolinas are in a slow-moving disaster. There will be many months rebuilding the towns. Especially on the coastal areas, but the disaster is really all over the state. It will take a while before many who fled the hurricane will even be able to make it back to their homes. Some analysts on television were saying that North Carolina suffered more than any state with this storm. And the rivers haven’t even crested yet.
Do you think that our LORD is angry at His people? And the hurricane isn’t the only thing that is happening in our nation right now. There are hundreds of fires burning in the western portion of the nation. Some of these are “the worst ever seen.” As the winds are twirling at a high rate of speed, the fires are out of control. Have you ever heard or seen any of these great disasters before? Is it God’s judgment on his people?
This week was the memorial of the disaster that gave the government the reason to go to war against Iraq. It has been seventeen long and controversial years! Time marches on. But, besides all the disagreement with the government’s version of the story from engineers, architects and others to reopen the investigation and the facts of the case, the government just goes ahead and totally ignores any complaints and facts. Just a few of them are:
The third tower couldn’t be blamed on the Arabs as no plane hit the tower and it came down as fast as the two towers. Why was it set for demolition?
The plane that crashed in Pennsylvania…where is it? It was just a small, empty hole in the ground. No plane, no engine, no bodies, no luggage, no black box…nothing. Doesn’t it make more sense that the plane was shot down and its debris was scattered over six miles of territory?
The Pentagon was hit by a missile, no plane. The hole is way too small and there were no plane parts: engine, wings, passengers, luggage; no large parts at all. There was only small debris that was picked up by the employees who walked in a straight line picking up all the pieces. And they had no video of the wreckage?
And the press just keeps on ignoring all the many complaints against the government…oh, that must be it. The Arabs did it. They must protect the federal government. And who runs the United States federal government?
In the ‘60s, during the Six-Day War, President Lyndon B. Johnson had ordered the recall of the United States carrier planes sent to aid the stricken vessel, the U.S. Liberty, which Israel(i) had attempted to sink to the bottom of the sea. The President, who was initiated in the Masonic Lodge in Johnson City, Tennessee, but never got past the first degree, said that he would prefer the ship to go to the bottom rather than embarrass his good friend—the country of Israel(i); the modern-day Canaanites.
Then came the cover-up from inside the federal government. A hastily convened and summarily executed board of inquiry headed by Four-star Admiral John McCain, father of the recently buried “American hero” senator, who deliberately interviewed only a handful of crewmen before determining that it was all an accident. The sailors who had survived the attack, as well as crewmen from Navy ships that arrived eventually to aid the ship, were held incommunicado in Malta before being threatened and sworn to secrecy. Since that time, repeated attempts to convene another genuine inquiry have been rebuffed by Congress, the White House and the Pentagon. Recently deceased Senator John McCain was particularly active in rejecting overtures from the Liberty survivors. The press never tells its listeners and readers anything about all the evil that the womanizing John McCain was active in. If this story is correct, were John McCain, and his father, heroes or traitors?
WHO ARE THE DESCENDANTS OF THE CANAANITES?
Jewish/Canaanite Communism teaches “One Race, One Religion, One Creed” (one world SATANIC government). God commands His people to be separate from all peoples. Only one people have ever been known as the peoples of Christendom. As they are absorbed by the alien world (or killed), Christendom becomes a little less Christendom (Christ’s Kingdom).
This pits Christian Identity against the basic tenet of Jewish/Canaanite Communism. Do you see that each one of the two seed lines hold to one of these forms of government? You can’t believe that there is just one race, one religion and one creed if you believe in many races, many religions and many creeds. One of them must be wrong; maybe both—but they both can’t be correct, for they are opposites.
Jesus and His disciples preached “the gospel of the kingdom.” What kingdom? It is the kingdom of Jesus Christ. Who is in His kingdom? The descendants of the covenant people for the last 4500 years, plus the descendants of Adam before that time. At one time, the kingdom was on the earth and functioning. Who was its king? It was the LORD God of Israel.
When He was king, did He have any laws that He wanted His people to obey? Were His laws given only to the nation that He was ruling or were His laws given to all the other nations?
Psalms 147:19, 20:
19) “He sheweth His word unto Jacob, His statutes and His judgments unto Israel.
20) He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for His judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD.”
But Israel wanted to be like the other nations. That means that they were different. They had the LORD God as their king. The judges ruled in the courts according to the laws or commandments that God had given them. But can you believe that Israel was dissatisfied with their condition? They had as their king, the LORD God of the universe. They were given the laws that were the envy of the world. But they “wanted to be like the other nations.”
Who is not in this kingdom? All the other races of the world, plus all the mongrels. Is that what Jesus meant when He commanded: “Give not that which in holy to the dogs”? What could that possibly mean if all races are equal?
Let’s “reason together”. The religious world teaches that everyone in the world is of two destinies: lost or saved. They teach that everyone starts out either totally depraved or partially depraved. The totally depraved cannot be saved by themselves, they need God to save them. The partially saved must help God save them. But they both have the same people in mind: anyone of any race is chosen by God or they choose God to be saved. But this presents very difficult answers to a lot of unasked questions.
There is a whole host of different options that a person hears from the Judeo-Christian churches regarding how a person is saved. Does God save you, or do you save yourself, or is it a partnership? If God saves an individual, what individuals does He save?
Most Judeo-Christian churches today would say that salvation is a partnership. I have heard in my past, many sermons that said, “Jesus votes for you, Satan votes against you, and you have the deciding vote. Come up here at the end of my sermon and say the sinner’s prayer and be saved.”
In the country’s early history, almost all the Christian churches were Calvinistic in their theology. Lutherans, Presbyterians, Baptists, Puritans, Pilgrims were a major part of the churches who taught that God was sovereign; that it was He, alone, that saved individuals. If God elected you, you were saved. If God rejected you, you were condemned to hell. You were born totally depraved, meaning you were going to hell, until the Holy Spirit came and saved you.
It is like the hymn that says: “Born a child of hell, comforted by the Holy Spirit.”
The churches of America taught that every individual of the world was born a child of hell. They had to be turned into a person who was “born again.” Whether God did it alone, or it was done in partnership, it had to be done. In the early days of our nation, it was God who “saved” an individual. The person didn’t do anything. God elected who was going to be saved before the foundation of the world. Their mistake? They ignored the blood of the covenant. They preached that God could save any one of any race. They were universalists.
But by the early 1800s, the process changed completely. Instead of God being sovereign, the individual was sovereign. It was up to man to choose to be saved. God elected those who were going to be saved? It followed the theology of a man and they called it Arminianism.
Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox Catholics, Methodists, Church of Christ, Christian Church, and others led the march towards Arminianism in the States. Now how can anyone say that they are both the same? --Calvinism and Arminianism. They differ on all points of salvation; man is sovereign vs. God is sovereign. But they agree on the statement that the world is divided into two different camps—the saved and the lost.
Look at what one of them says on their website:
“There are only two kinds of people on Earth today. Those whom God has saved, and those who are still lost. Right now you are either saved, or lost in your sins.” (www.born-again-christian.info/god.htm).
So, the question is: Which one is correct or are either of them correct?
Preservation and Perseverance
Can be saved and then lost
Practically all Calvinistic and Arminian churches say that you must, either:
Believe in Jesus, or
Believe Christ died for you, or
Be baptized, either:
As an infant,
As a 13-year-old adult,
As an adult after he has repented,
The person baptizing must use the exact right words,
Must be baptized in the correct mode,
Full body immersion or sprinkling,
Only after a person is baptized,
The Communion must be Transubstantiation, i.e. the actual blood and body of Jesus Christ,
The Communion must be a substitution for the body and blood of the Savior,
Must be wine and unleavened bread, or it
Must be grape juice and leavened crackers,
Must be one cup or many cups,
Must be taken every service,
Once a month,
Any time a church wants.
Become a church member, or
Live a righteous life, or
Love your neighbor as yourself, or
Say the sinner’s prayer, or
Read the Bible, or
Be a tither, or
Keep the holy Sabbath, or
Keep the Feast Days, or
Use the sacred Name correctly
And when a person does whatever the church says he must do, and then no longer does them, is he still saved? In some churches a person is saved over a dozen times. He comes from a position of saved, not saved, saved, not saved, etc. In fewer churches, a person stays saved forever, once he repents. Which is correct?
Who was saved and who was lost in the pre-flood days of Noah?
Before Adam was placed on the earth in the Garden of Eden, were there any other people on the earth? If there were, were there any that were saved? Or were they all lost?
Adam did not evolve. He had no earthly parents. His body was created from the dust of the earth, and the spirit of God was breathed into him. Eve, his wife, was created from a part of his body. Neither one of them had any earthly parents. Adam, each evening, met with and had fellowship with His God. Adam could have lived forever if he had never sinned.
I am not aware of any denomination that teaches that Adam and Eve were not in a “saved” condition before they sinned. They were living in Paradise. But after they sinned, differences sprang up.
Soon, Cain killed Abel. No matter what you believe about who Cain’s father was, there developed two different seed lines. The seed of Cain and the rest of the seed of Eve. As part of their punishment, God said that HE put enmity into both of their hearts. Both of these two seed lines are in the earth today. Who are they? I never heard who these two seed lines were in the Judeo-Christian churches where I used to be a member. In fact, I never heard that there were two seed lines that hated each other. There can be no peaceful co-existence until at least one of these two seed lines is annihilated.
Most denominations would teach that the seed line of Seth was saved, and the seed line of Cain was lost. The Bible says nothing good about any of the descendants of Cain.
But someone has to be the descendants of Cain, later Canaan and even later Edom. Who are they? Who hates the LORD God? Who hates Jesus the Christ? That is a good clue. God commanded His people to kill every single Canaanite who was living in the Promised Land. He told them not to marry them; not to make a covenant with them; not to show any mercy toward them; not to send any missionaries to them. They were to destroy them. They were instructed to completely write them off the face of the earth. But they failed to be 100% effective in their attempts to eliminate completely the Canaanites from their new land.
As a consequence of this failure to obey their God, the following information was told to them:
1) “And an angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said I will never break my covenant with you.
2) And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my voice: why have ye done this?
3) Wherefore I also said, I will not drive them out from before you; but they shall be as thorns in your sides, and their gods shall be a snare unto you.
4) And it came to pass, when the angel of the LORD spake these words unto all the children of Israel, that the people lifted up their voice, and wept.”
The enemies of Israel were to no longer be annihilated. They were to live among them and be a possible thorn in their sides. Their gods were to be a possible snare unto them. It was to be a test. Which god would they serve: the LORD God of Israel or Baal?
Canaan married into the descendants of Cain. Esau married into the descendants of Canaan. The people who have historically always hated the LORD God and His son are the Kenites or Canaanites or Edomites or Jews.
What does that mean? Are God’s people allowed to marry them, despite all the Scripture that says that they are not allowed to?
What do you think of John Hagee, who married his second wife, Diana Castro, a Spanish Morrano (crypto Jew) who handles the ministry and has a bunch of ghost writers pushing the Jewish theme. Hagee had an affair with her, when she was a member of his church. He confessed his sin and was disfellowshipped from his preaching license from the denomination he was a member of. But what did he do? He just went down the street and started a new church, without his preaching license.
Tonight our Jewish friends in Israel and around the world will celebrate the joyous beginning of Rosh Hashanah, the New Year according to the ancient Hebrew calendar. To all of the Jewish families gathered with friends and loved ones, we wish a year filled with every blessing of peace, joy, and safety. May the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob continue to fill your homes with laughter and shield you from every enemy.
Amidst ongoing terrorism from Gaza and rising tensions along Israel’s northern borders, this is our prayer for every person in Israel this Rosh Hashanah:
“The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”
And to all the members of Christians United for Israel, I pray God will bless each one of you with abundant joy, prosperity, health, and divine favor in the coming year as you continue to show your love and friendship to His beloved nation, Israel.
To you and to all our Jewish friends, we wish you Shana Tova! (Happy New Year!)
Pastor John Hagee - Founder and Chairman, Christians United for Israel
What if a Christian does not support the nation of Israel(i)? Does John Hagee wish them a Happy New Year? The American Baptist Church that I grew up in always said Numbers 6:24-26 as their benediction. The preacher would recite these three verses and the service would be over. It is exactly the way that we end or services, except I read from Hebrews 13:20-21.
24) “The LORD bless thee, and keep thee;
25) The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
26) The LORD life up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.”
But they always never read verse 27:
Number 6:27: “And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them.”
Hagee has no right to bless both, the people who he considers wrongly as being the covenant seed, and the goyim—his Baal flock of believers with these three verses. It is to the covenant seed of Israel, alone, that these blessings are given. They are neither.
Hagee is a preacher who fell in love with a woman from his church. He divorced his wife and then married his mistress. The denomination that he was with pulled his preaching license. So, what did he do? He went just a couple of miles away from his former church and started another one. It has become the church that supports the group: “Christians United for Israel”, an oxymoron group. Did you know that Pastor John Hagee has admitted to an affair and then scandalously divorced his wife and mother of his two children to marry the woman he had the affair with?
In 1966 he founded Trinity Church and was a licensed minister with the Assembly of God organization. In early 1975 he resigned from Trinity Church and in a letter to his congregation admitted immorality (adultery). This led to a divorce with his first wife. He has been a part of the controversy when he got divorced from his first wife Martha Downing, who gained custody of their two children.
No wonder that Hagee endorsed Senator McCain for president. They were similar in who they remarried. But what if it was common knowledge that the Canaanites are not the same as we are. They have a different father. They have a different destiny. Everyone doesn’t have the ability to be “saved” or “lost.”
The Canaanites don’t. Jesus told them face-to-face that they were of their father, the devil. (John 8:44). They sought to kill Him (John 8:40). They were from beneath (John 8:23). They don’t hear God’s Word (John 8:47). And their destiny?
Jesus gave a parable about the Wheat and the Tares. Who are the Tares? They are the enemy of both God and His people. History has shown that these people have been the historical enemy of God, His children and His kingdom.
“The Canaanites have constantly killed God’s people in war and persecution; and when that was not possible, the Canaanites have been very successful using the race-mixing card to bring God’s wrath upon His people. God says there is coming a day when there will no longer be any Canaanite (Tares) in and among the House of Israel” (Kingdom Parables, Everett Ramsey, page 48).
What happens when the tares are thrown into the furnace of fire? It is the same place their father will be thrown. Like father, like son. No wonder that God told His people to annihilate them. It would have been so much easier that way—when will we listen to Him? None of them can be “saved.”
They don’t even want to be preached to. It is against the law in their country for anyone to do so. They obey laws that are counter to the LORD God of Israel. They keep the laws that their god, Baal, and goddess, Ashtaroth, teach:
Prostitution of illicit sex,
Working against the children of Israel,
Forsaking the LORD God,
Serve Ashtaroth (Baal’s wife)
Let’s go back in time. What would the chart look like when Adam and Eve were in the Garden before either one of them sinned?
Total fellowship with God—Adam spoke daily with his Lord God in the Garden.
Unconditional election—chosen before the foundation of the earth.
No Atonement needed—Adam and Eve hadn’t committed any sin, so no atonement needed.
Irresistible Grace—Adam had access to the Spirit of God.
Preservation—Adam would never had died if he would not have sinned.
But that all changed, after Eve was deceived and sinned and later when Adam sinned:
After Adam and Eve both sinned:
Total Depravity: Adam and Eve had no hope of having eternal life without the intervention of God.
Unconditional Election: Chosen before the foundation of the world.
Limited Atonement: Promise of Messiah to come and die for their sins.
Irresistible Grace: The Holy Spirit was available to all Adamites.
Preservation: Dependent on the Messiah dying for his sins.
Adam and Eve’s generations meet with disaster. They lived almost 1,000 years until they met with destruction in the flood of Noah. When they died—were they saved or lost?
After the flood, if the flood was world-wide, there would have been only eight people in the entire earth. And what race was Noah and his family, for if there were no other people alive, there would have been no other races, either. That was only about 4,500 years ago. Were Noah, his three sons, and their four wives all saved? But there would have been no descendants left of Cain. All the giants would have been drowned also. How could that be? Were all these people “lost”?
Shortly thereafter, most people believe that we had all the people of the world living near the Tower of Babel. There were no people living in the jungles of Africa or South America. No people living in Asia, or North America or even Europe. They were all the same race and spoke the same language.
God then separated them by languages. So, all the people went with the other people that spoke the same language that they were speaking. Some went to Africa and turned black, because of the hot sun. Others went to Europe, others to Asia, others to the Pacific islands. And so forth. What a Jewish fable this is!
About 4,000 years ago, God and Abraham became friends. Abraham kept God’s laws and was blessed. There was one thing that made Abram sad…he had no offspring to pass his inheritance to. God told Abram to kill five different animals—a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old she goat, a three-year-old ram, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon. Cut them in two pieces and put half on one side and the other half on the other, so that there would be a walkway between the cut pieces. And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram, and God Almighty walked between the pieces of the dead animals. God cut the covenant with Abram, which had certain promises given to him.
Abram would have a child with Sarah, and his son would have two boys. Through the younger boy, the seed line would continue. Several hundred years later, God would eventually become king over this kingdom. Was everyone in God’s kingdom saved?
Soon, God was asked to leave as being their king and to be replaced with kings like the other nations had. God then left the kingship and appointed a very tall and very handsome man as king. It didn’t go very well. And it hasn’t to this day.
Later, the united tribes of Israel had only three kings. After the death of Solomon, they split into two kingdoms. The northern kingdom refused to have a descendant of David as their king; refused to have a man descended from Levi as their priest; and refused to use the Temple that was located in Jerusalem. They quickly became Baal worshippers. Were they saved?
Remember, the northern kingdom was 5/6 of all Israelites. They were big time Baal worshippers. They forsook the LORD their God. They were eventually divorced from their husband LORD.
Total Depravity: They could do no good work. They couldn’t do anything to put them in the good graces of God.
No Atonement: There was no atonement available. They had no hope. They needed a Savior.
Today, many churches in America, by their doctrines, are destroying the Israel people. Almost every church in America tells us we are not the Israel people. I don’t know of any doctrine that can destroy our people faster than by telling them that they are not Israel. If we are not Israel, then it is much easier to convince our people to do things as the heathen would.
Judeo-Christianity is wrong. The world isn’t made up of all lost people, some of whom are being saved. There are lost people, with no hope of ever being saved; and saved people, who are always saved. Two different kinds of people. One who hears God’s laws and the other who can never hear them. The battle is a six-thousand-year battle.
Blessed be the LORD God of Israel.
