Who Chooses? Part 7

Scripture Reading: Judges 3:12

 Again the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord, and because they [Israelites] did this evil the Lord gave Eglon king of Moab power over Israel.”

Israel, was now in its history, a theocracy. God was their King. The Israelites did not have a Congress and there was no one else in their Executive branch. All they had in their government, besides their king, was the Judicial branch. So, why would Israel ever be under the control of another people—a foreign people?

Now this verse tells us what was the reason that the Israelites fell under the authority of the king of Moab. It was because “the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the LORD”, their King. And because the Israelites had done this evil, the LORD gave the “king of Moab power over Israel.”

This pattern repeated itself over and over in the history of the Bible:

  1. Israel sinned against their LORD and king,

  2. God raised up one or more of their enemies to rule over them,

  3. Israel finally got disgusted over their condition and repented, and

  4. Then God sent them a deliverer to save them.

This is exactly what happened in this situation when Israel sinned against their LORD. God got the Moabites, Ammonites and Amalekites to come and attack His people Israel and to take possession of one of their cities, the area that use to be Jericho, and the Israelites became subject to the king of Moab for eighteen years.

Moab and Ammon were the offspring of Lot and his 2 daughters. After Lot’s wife died, shortly after they escaped from Sodom and Gomorrah, the two daughters slept with their father while he was in a drunken condition. They each had a son from this incestuous relationship—Moab and Ammon. The Amalekites were descended from the grandson of Esau and one of the Hittite women who God forbid His people from marrying; this offspring was so filled with enmity against Israel that God said that He would have war with Amalek’s descendants forever. They have hated and fought the offspring of Judah and Israel beginning from the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt.

What was the sin that brought on this change in the rulership of Israel? How did Eglon, king of Moab become the king over the tribes of Benjamin, Ephraim and the surrounding area? The first four verses in chapter three of Judges tells us that the foreigners in Israel were left there for the purpose of testing Israel. Israel failed the test many times.

Judges 3:5-7:

5) “And the children of Israel dwelt among the Canaanites, Hittites, and Amorites, and Perizzites, and Hivites, and Jebusites:

6) And they took their daughters to be their wives, and gave their daughters to their sons and served their gods.”

Let me fill in who the “they” and “their” are representing:

6) “And they [Israelites] took their [Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites] daughters to be their [Israelites] wives, and gave their [Israelites] daughters to their [Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites] sons and served their [Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites] gods.

7) And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and forgat the LORD their God, and served Baalim and the groves.”

Don’t these verses teach that Israel practiced interracial marriage many years before they even split into two kingdoms! “Nothing new under the sun.” Do you think that the LORD God of Israel was pleased with His elects’ interracial marriages, or do you think that His anger was hot against Israel?

Israel was taking it’s “holy seed” and mixing it with the seed of another race. That is, they would marry anyone or have sexual relations with anyone of any race—it didn’t matter to them that they were sleeping with an individual who was not part of the covenant that God had made. They were serving another god, Baal, because that god said that it was okay for them to have sexual relations with anyone in the world.

Think about this for a second. The same sin is happening in America and the other Israel nations now at an increasing rate that is accelerating upward at an alarming trend. Almost every family has at least one of its daughters, sons, nieces, nephews, or grandchildren involved in this sin. And the ones who are interracially marrying: Are they following the God of the Bible or Baal? Is the God of the Bible pleased or does His anger still heat-up against Israel?

What a minute! Didn’t those “evil” Germans (Judah) say that it was against the law for any true German (Judah) to marry any Jew (Edomite/Ashkenazi)? Weren’t they correct?

And wasn’t it against the law in the United States of America for any of its citizens to interracially marry until 1967? What happened? Did our God change?

13) “Getting the Ammonites and Amalekites to join him, Eglon came and attacked Israel, and they took possession of the City of Palms.

14) The Israelites were subject to Eglon king of Moab for eighteen years.”

So, after eighteen years, the Israelites cried out to the LORD and He gave them a deliverer. Where did he come from? What was the name of their deliverer and how did he save them? The Bible tells us:

15) “Again the Israelites cried out to the Lord, and he gave them a deliverer—Ehud, a left-handed man, the son of Gera the Benjamite. The Israelites sent him with tribute to Eglon king of Moab.

16) Now Ehud had made a double-edged sword about a cubit long, which he strapped to his right thigh under his clothing.

17) He presented the tribute to Eglon king of Moab, who was a very fat man.

18) After Ehud had presented the tribute, he sent on their way those who had carried it.

19) But on reaching the stone images near Gilgal he himself went back to Eglon and said, “Your Majesty, I have a secret message for you.”

The king said to his attendants, “Leave us!” And they all left.

20) Ehud then approached him while he was sitting alone in the upper room of his palace and said, “I have a message from God for you.” As the king rose from his seat,

21) Ehud reached with his left hand, drew the sword from his right thigh and plunged it into the king’s belly.

22) Even the handle sank in after the blade, and his bowels discharged. Ehud did not pull the sword out, and the fat closed in over it.

23) Then Ehud went out to the porch; he shut the doors of the upper room behind him and locked them.

24) After he had gone, the servants came and found the doors of the upper room locked. They said, “He must be relieving himself in the inner room of the palace.”

25) They waited to the point of embarrassment, but when he did not open the doors of the room, they took a key and unlocked them. There they saw their lord fallen to the floor, dead.

26) While they waited, Ehud got away. He passed by the stone images and escaped to Seirah.

The king of Moab had captured the region where the city of Jericho once stood. It was there where he was residing in his summer palace that was located between Old Jericho and the city of Gilgal. It is possible that the Moabites had set up carved idols in the stones at Gilgal after they had oppressed Israel and made them pay tribute.

Ehud, the deliverer of Israel, first gives a tribute to Eglon, the king of Moab, in his summer palace at Jericho.  Then after going to Gilgal, he returns and assassinates Eglon.  Ehud escapes to Seirah, where he summons the men who were living in the hill country of Ephraim.  They then go and seize the fords on the Jordan River.

King Eglon, the descendant of the infamous Balak from the book of Numbers, placed the tribe of Benjamin and the neighboring tribes under his most severe rule. Many of them had fled to Jerusalem, eight miles to the south, and to the hills of Ephraim. Ehud was a Benjaminite. Many of this tribe were left-handed.

Ehud, the deliverer of Israel, first gives a tribute to Eglon in his summer palace at Jericho. Then after going to Gilgal, he returns and tells the king that he has a secret message from God. The king tells his men to leave them alone whereas Ehud, pulls out his foot-and-a-half sword from his right thigh and kills the king of Moab. Ehud then escapes to Seirah where he summons the men who were living in the hill country of Ephraim. They then go and seize the fords on the Jordan River and prevent the Moabites from escaping back to Moab. They kill 10,000 Moabites.

27) When he arrived there, he blew a trumpet in the hill country of Ephraim, and the Israelites went down with him from the hills, with him leading them.

28) “Follow me,” he ordered, “for the Lord has given Moab, your enemy, into your hands.” So, they followed him down and took possession of the fords of the Jordan that led to Moab; they allowed no one to cross over.

29) At that time they struck down about ten thousand Moabites, all vigorous and strong; not one escaped.”

After Israel had repented of their sins, they cried to the LORD their King, and He raised up Ehud to deliver them from the power of Eglon, king of Moab. When it was all over, the king was the first to die. And what a strange death he experienced. It reminded me of Pastor Mark’s last sermon when he instructed us about the rich man and Lazarus. Lazarus was poor and had sores all over his body, but the rich man lived luxuriously every day. The king of Moab was very fat—he must have lived the life of luxury to its fullest! He was so fat that when Ehud stuck his sword into his belly, the fat encased the sword to such a degree that it could be retrieved out.

And shortly after Eglon’s death, ten thousand Moabites were all killed. Israel was delivered.

30) “That day Moab was made subject to Israel, and the land had peace for eighty years.”

Israel sinned for eighteen years and served Moab. After they were delivered, Moab served Israel for eighty years and there was peace. This was the second servitude of Israel in a five hundred-ninety-one-year period in the days of the Judges. Let’s review:

1st servitude:  To the Mesopotamians for 8 years

2nd servitude: To the Moabites for 18 years

3rd servitude:  To the Canaanites for 20 years

4th servitude:  To the Midianites for 7 years

5th servitude:  To the Philistines and Ammonites for 18 years

6th servitude:  To the Philistines for 40 years

Six servitudes for a period of one hundred eleven years. So, from the time of the Exodus from Egypt to the 4th year of King Solomon’s reign, when David’s son began to build the temple was 591 years. When you subtract the 111 years that Israel was under the reign of a foreign power, that gives you 480 years. Then it took 7 more years to finish building the Temple and 3 more years to cast brazen pillars and vessels. Ten more years, and the Temple was dedicated. A total of four-hundred-ninety years of nonforeign intervention.

Do you think that these six servitudes told us in the book of Judges are fact or fiction? If it is fiction—then we have no hope. But if it is a fact—we know that we will win. For the LORD is the one who chooses which side wins. All we must do is repent and obey His commands. And God will make His people repent and obey!

Is the USA a Republic or a Democracy?

Has the LORD changed? Has the LORD changed who His people are? Has the LORD changed how He deals with His people? Does the LORD determine if they are the rulers or are they the oppressed? Is the reason they are in slavery because they have disobeyed His commands? Can they regain their freedom, if they repent and obey Him?

And do you know that if Israel had obeyed the LORD while they were under rulership of Joshua and killed every foreigner in their land, they would not have been oppressed by the Moabites, Ammonites, Amalekites, Canaanites, Philistines, etc., because all these enemies would have been dead.

But the same old stories have just gone on and one, continuing year after year. Israel still has sinned. Israel still has been punished. And her punishment will increase until the people of God’s covenant will repent and obey. No deliverance will happen until God’s covenant people repent and obey. Let’s look at another story that repeated this theme in the Bible.


America began as a Republic. When did it change to a democracy? The following is some of the history that I was not taught in high school or college. But it will answer the question and remove the curtain and reveal to us who is ruling over the Israel people secretively!

The Anti-Defamation League (Jewish) was started after the lynching of the murderer of a young white girl, Mary Phagan, in Atlanta. The Jewish boss of a pencil factory was also the head of the B’nai B’rith Jewish Masonic Lodge. The ADL was started to stop any more Jewish lynching’s. The same is true with Roman Catholicism.

Many of Abraham Lincoln’s plotters and executioners were Roman Catholics:

  • David Herold

  • Samuel Arnold, admitted being guilty to the one of the plotting’s of the kidnapping of the president, but said that he was in Virginia at the time of the assassination

  • Samuel Mudd (the doctor that treated John Wilkes Booth’s broken leg)

  • John Wilkes Booth

  • Mary Surratt

  • John Surratt

Even a couple of the other plotters had names that sounded Catholic to most other Americans:

  • Michael O’Laughlen

  • George Atzerodt

And there were a few who were not Romanist:

  • Lewis Powell, son of a Baptist preacher

  • Edman Spangler, later in his life was converted to Romanism

And, of course:

  • Judah Benjamin, the Jew, born in the Caribbean Islands

  • Albert Pike, born in Massachusetts and a leader of the Illuminati in America

Mary Surratt's inn was in Surrattsville, which is now called Clinton, Virginia.John Surratt’s mother, Mary, along with David Herold and two other conspirators, Lewis Powell and George Atzerodt, were hanged. Edman Spangler was sentenced to 6 years, Samuel Arnold to life, Michael O’Laughlen to life, Samuel Mudd to life, but they all got out in 1867 by a pardon by President Andrew Johnson except for Michael O’Laughlen who died in prison of yellow fever; Judah Benjamin, lived in England and Albert Pike, who eventually was pardoned for insubordination and treason by President Andrew Johnson.

In fact, John’s mother, Mary Surratt, was the first woman to be executed in the United States. They held their meetings at her house that was located very close to Ford’s Theater, the place was Abraham Lincoln was assassinated.

Her inn was in Surrattsville, which is now called Clinton, Virginia. First find, WASHINGTON. Clinton is the second town south.

Just a little interesting tidbit about these photographs. The government allowed the taking of these pictures of the hanging of the four individuals found guilty in the assassination of president Lincoln, but in the Sandy Hook massacre we were not even allowed to see the blood that remained after all the “individuals” were removed! We couldn’t even see the remains of the shooter!

The four condemned conspirators of Abraham Lincoln: David Herold, Lewis Powell, Mary Surratt and George Atzerodt (from left to right).The four condemned conspirators: David Herold, Lewis Powell, Mary Surratt and George Atzerodt (from left to right).

David Herold: An impressionable and dull-witted pharmacy clerk, Herold accompanied Booth to the home of Dr. Samuel Mudd, who set Booth’s injured leg. The two men then continued their escape through Maryland and into Virginia.

Lewis Powell: Powell was a former Confederate prisoner of war. Tall and strong, he was to kill Secretary of State William Seward. He entered the Seward home and severely injured Seward, Seward’s son, and a bodyguard with a knife.

Mary Surratt: Surratt owned a boarding house in Washington where the conspirators met. Sentenced to death, she was hanged, becoming the first woman executed by the United States federal government.

George Azterodt: German-born Azterodt was a carriage painter and boatman who had secretly ferried Confederate spies across Southern Maryland waterways during the war. Recruited by Booth into the conspiracy, he was assigned to kill Vice President Andrew Johnson, but lost his nerve and stayed in a hotel bar, drinking, instead.

John Surratt in Papal Zouave uniformMary Surratt, the mother of John, was held by the authorities with the purpose of drawing out her son, who had escaped to Canada, where he was hidden by a priest. The plan failed and instead he was smuggled out of the country to England. John Surratt was then given shelter in a Catholic Church in Liverpool. And then he went to Rome and joined the pope’s army.

The Pontifical Zouave was a foreign legion of Catholics from around the world who promised to protect the last remaining bit of territory controlled by Pope Pius. Enlisting under an alias, Surratt was spotted by an old friend who reported the information to the United States Consul. When Pius was informed a suspected conspirator in the assassination of Lincoln was in his army, he was horrified and ordered his arrest.

But Surratt escaped, and was helped out of Italy. The United States Congress, angered over Surratt’s service in the pope’s army, passed a law in 1867 banning any future funding for United States diplomatic missions to the Vatican. This law which was on the books until the 1980s.

A. A. Springs, left to his son an enormous amount of land in the state of Alabama which amounted to the land that is today known as Huntsville, AlabamaBut that is not all. Who really killed the President? A. A. Springs, left to his son an enormous amount of land in the state of Alabama which amounted to the land that is today known as Huntsville, Alabama and then he went into detail to name the son and the name of the son was “ABRAHAM LINCOLN!”

The story goes that Nancy Hanks, mother of Abraham Lincoln, went to Lincolnton, North Carolina to visit some of her family. Was Abraham Lincoln name after the city in which he was conceived:  LINCOLNton?While there, she also spent some time with some families that she knew, one of which was the Springs family who had their name changed from Springstein. She became pregnant by A. A. Springs and the son’s name was Abraham Lincoln, not Abraham Springs. Was Lincoln name after the city in which he was conceived: LINCOLNton?

Is this story true? Was there really a Thomas Lincoln? Since the Springsteins, were Jewish, that made Lincoln part Jewish and as part of the Springs family, he also became a relative of the Rothschild family and Esau/Edom by blood. Is this true or not?

But the following is true. Abraham Lincoln was slapped three times with a white glove by a member of the Hapsburg royal family of Germany during a White House reception in 1862. The German royal family member demanded a pistol duel with the, then, President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. The blows to the face stunned Lincoln but he non- verbally refused to participate in the duel by bowing his head before walking out of the reception room. What had old honest Abe done to so enrage and up-set the royal European personage? That is the question that demands an answer.

Remember, duels were common in the early days of our nation. Practically everyone knows of the duel between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton. But hardly anyone has heard of the challenge that Judah Benjamin made to Jefferson Davis. He challenged Jefferson Davis to a duel in the Senate over some remarks that he had made. But Jefferson Davis apologized and the two of them became very close friends. Judah Benjamin became the “brains of the Confederacy.” And practically no one is taught the duel challenged to President Lincoln by the Hapsburg royal family.

It seems that the practice of promiscuity was running rampant in many families in those days and the German King Leopold had an illegitimate daughter named Elizabeth who was sent to America, where she lived in a very comfortable manner.  Around the middle of the 1850s, Abraham Lincoln and Elizabeth began having sexual liaisons that produced twin daughters named Ella and Emily in 1856.

One of Abraham Lincoln’s daughters had been given over to the care of Felix Turner Hughes. Felix died however soon after the daughter arrived at his South Carolina plantation. A relative named Felix Monroe Hughes took over as guardian. Awhile later, this relative raped Lincoln’s daughter. She gave birth to a child which she named…

Howard Hughes…Howard Hughes, Sr. who was the father of ...

Meanwhile, the wife of president Lincoln had developed a ravaging dependency on opium. Her main supplier of the drug was, can you believe this? Her main supplier of the drug was John Wilkes Booth!

President Lincoln had fallen from the grace of the Rothschild’s due to his printing of the Greenbacks, thus interfering in the Jewish International Banks profits. The Rothschild family wanted Lincoln embarrassed to the maximum degree.

So, Mary Todd Lincoln’s drug dealer (John Wilkes Booth) was hired to kidnap the President of the United States. Abraham would be put on a boat for a two-month cruise of the Atlantic where he would be injected with and addicted to opium and then dumped onto the streets of Washington, D.C. While the forcefully addicted President was stumbling around our nation’s capital, the press would be informed of his illegitimate affair with Elizabeth, that produced the two girls, Ella and Emily.

The President’s wife was in on the plans. She was informed of “dishonest” Abe’s illegitimate daughters and was promised when it was all over, that both she and the president, after he resigned or was impeached, would move to Europe where they would receive plenty of opium, which would satisfy her cravings.

A wagon with a wooden cover arrived at the back entrance of the Ford Theater with several men including Mary’s opium supplier. The plan for the kidnapping was for John Wilkes Booth to traverse the backstairs entrance, silently move down a hallway, and open an unlocked door to a darkened room where Mary and the President were sitting.

After entering the room, John Wilkes Booth would tell the President an urgent message was waiting for him at the War Department. Before descending the backstairs, the President would be knocked out with a chloroform cloth. The kidnappers would load the limp body into the covered wagon and swiftly stow Lincoln on an opium boat for a cruise of the Atlantic Ocean.

When Booth opened the door to the darkened room where they both were sitting, he went into a panic and shock. The President was asleep with his head on his wife’s left shoulder and the First Lady had her head turned toward the left looking at the door. When she was sure the man who opened the door was Booth, she turned and looked at the President to be sure the pistol she was pointing would explode beneath the lower left earlobe of her husband. She fired the one-shot derringer, which is now showcased at the Ford Theater’s Museum, into his head.

Yikes! What if you were John Wilkes Booth? What would you think just happened? John probably thought that Mary was very upset at her husband’s infidelity. Was he set up? He jumped off the balcony onto the stage and broke his leg and limped away to safety.

And do you know what happened next?

  1. Mrs. Lincoln failed to attend her husband’s funeral. Why?

  2. She was imprisoned in her room with two armed guards for two weeks while they decided on what to do with her. Why?

  3. She applied for her widower’s compensation three times and was denied the mandated compensation all three times by both Houses of Congress. Why was she denied?

  4. An unknown benefactor paid for Mary’s passage to Europe where she died in small cottage in Germany.

It is still a mystery. It was five days after the signing of the peace treaty that ended the War Between the States. Secret plans were made to cause the nation to be in much chaos. For in one night the following people would be kidnapped or murdered:

  1. The kidnapping or murder of the president, Abraham Lincoln

  1. The assassination of the vice-president, Andrew Johnson

  2. The assassination of the Secretary of State, William E. Seward

  3. The assassination of Union General and future President Ulysses S. Grant

The results:

  1. Abraham Lincoln was shot and not kidnapped

  2. Andrew Johnson’s life was spared as his assassin got drunk instead

  3. William E. Seward was attacked severely in bed and four other people were either attempted to be shot or was slashed by the knife of the would-be killer, Lewis Powell

  4. Ulysses S. Grant left town the day before so no attempt was made on his life

Four people were hanged; several people were given life sentences; one was given a 6-year sentence, several people fled to other countries; one was pardoned; some lived in exile. Give me the “good old days?”

Just six years after all this happened, the United States forfeited on their loans incurred mostly because of the war between the states. They were bankrupt. This gave the banks their plan to get into the door of America. Their idea was to change America from being a country to become a corporation! Foreigners saw their opportunity and offered America the money that they would loan to them if they gave them want they wanted. Congress should have cried out to the LORD; instead they served Baal.

The foreign bankers were successful on February 21, 1871 when the united states signed into law the Act of 1871. The Act changed the “constitution for the united states of America” to the “CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”.

Washington, the district of Columbia; the Vatican in Italy; 677 acres in London, England and Jerusalem, Israeli are the four most powerful areas in the world. The Act of 1871 gave Washington its own government and the territories over which it rules. Washington, D.C. became a corporation. The traitors in Congress that created this corporation took the easy and terrible way out. Without any Constitutional authority, the Congress created a government for a 10-square mile property known as Washington, DC. It has since taken captive our government and rules over the fifty states of the union.

Soon, the corporation was broke, so they took all our gold. Still later, the corporation became bankrupt again, and they took all our silver. It became bankrupt again, and they took all our national parks. It became bankrupt again, and they took all our ….

Shortly after Washington, D.C. became a corporation we got the Federal Reserve System, the Income Tax, the Social Security Tax, Driver’s License, Marriage License, Passports, Social Security Number, Teacher’s License, Physician’s License, Preacher’s License, etc., etc., etc., and a democracy.

And do you know that all the money paid into the Federal Income Tax, none of it goes to the government. Not for the schools, not for the police, not for the firemen, not for the roads and bridges, not for the hospitals, not for the welfare, not for the wars, not for the cities, not for the states, not for all the things that the government does. The government gets most of their money from the drug cartel, property taxes and sales taxes; none from the federal income tax.

The Federal Income Tax goes to the British Crown, the foreign owners of the Federal Reserve Banks, and the employees of the Internal Revenue System. And when is the deadline for the income tax to be filed each year by all the United States citizens? April 15th. What happened that day? It was the day Abraham Lincoln died.


The Apostle Paul was a Benjaminite, just like Ehud was. Does the Bible call Ehud a Jew? The way this question is answered determines how much propaganda you are brain-washed with.

The answer:  The original King James Version of the Bible didn’t use the word “Jew” any place in all the books that are contained in the Bible. The reason is that the letter “J” was not in use in the English language at that time. That meant the “Jesus” was not used either as it has the letter J in it, too.

Jerome translated the Bible into Latin in the fourth century. John 19:19 refers to the inscription Pilate posted over Jesus’ cross. In our modern English Bibles, we read, “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews,” translated from the Greek “Ieous Nazoraios Basilius Ioudaios” but the Latin Vulgate reads, “Iesus Nazerenus Rex Iudaeorum.” This is usually abbreviated INRI as on all statues and imagery because there was no letter J at that time.

Contrary to what most people believe Shakespeare never saw the word “Jew” nor did he ever use the word “Jew” in any of his works, the common general belief to the contrary notwithstanding. In his “Merchant of Venice,” V, III, I, 61, first published in about 1600, Shakespeare wrote as follows “what is the reason? I am a Iewe; hath not a Iewe eyes?”

In the King James Edition published in 1611, also known as the Authorized Version, Jesus was described again as one of the “Iewes.” The forms of the Latin “Iudaeus” were used which were current at the time these translations were made.

But doesn’t the Modern Bibles say he was a Jew?

Matthew 27:37“And set up over his head his accusation written; THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.”  (KJV)

Matthew 27:37:  "And they set His charge above His head, being written: ‘This is Yahshua the King of the Judaeans’” Christogenea New Testament.

The word “Ioudaios” in Greek and “Iudaeus” in Latin meant a Judean; a person living in Judea. The original King James Version of the Bible, 1611, translated both of these two words as:

  • 193 times as Iewes (wrong)

  • 2 times as Jewess (wrong)

  • 1 time as Judea (correct).

The Apostle Paul was living in Tarsus, a city in Turkey.  He was a Judean who was living in Tarsus.The other 195 times it should have been translated as a person from Judea.

Acts 21:39: “But Paul said, I am a man which am a Jew of Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city: and, I beseech thee, suffer me to speak unto the people.” (KJV)

Acts 21:39“And Paul said “I am a Judaean man, of Tarsos of Kilikia, a citizen of no obscure city. Now I ask of you to allow me to speak to the people” Christogenea New Testament.

The Apostle Paul was living in Tarsus, a city in Turkey. He was a Judean who was living in Tarsus.

To conclude this message, let us see if the Apostle Paul choose God or if God choose him. We find that Paul was persecuting members of the church of Jesus Christ. He had just gotten the authority from the Edomite High Priests and was on his way to Damascus, Syria to put some Christians into jail.

On his way there, he was stopped by a bright light and he was asked, “Why was he persecuting Jesus, the Messiah?” Paul didn’t give a satisfactory answer and he soon found himself blind. He had to be led to Damascus by some of his followers.

While there, he had a dream in which he was instructed that there would come a man named Ananias who would put his hand on his head and restore his sight. And it happened. After being blind for three days, Ananias arrived at the house where Paul was staying and laid his hands on his head and restored him from his blindness. Why?

Because the LORD told Ananias:

Acts 9:15:  "…For he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and Kings, and the children of Israel:” King James Version.

Acts 9:15:  "…For he is a vessel chosen by Me who is to bear My Name before both the Nations and kings of the sons of Israel.” Christogenea New Testament.

What we are seeing in the United States of America now is the Weimar Republic having deep-rooted itself in America. Our president is not the president of the country, but the corporation. Our congress is not the congress of the country, but the corporation. Our judges are not the judges of the country, but the corporation.

We need another Ehud, or another Apostle Paul. How are we going to get one of these deliverers? Repent and obey out LORD and Savior.

Blessed be the LORD God of Israel.

To be continued.
