Note from Pastor Elmore: This is the last part of a three part series by the late Mark Downey. Mark died of cancer on March 28, 2018. Mark preached this at our church almost ten years ago. I consider this one of his classics.

Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 31:10-13
I'm a baby-boomer and growing up in the 1950's, when you could walk down the street in relative safety, I remember my mom saying, "Don't talk to strangers." Even 50 years ago, America was changing for the worse. Christianity was on the verge of a major downswing towards a hyphenated judaization and multicultural diversity. Back then, the proverbial stranger was a hitchhiker with his thumb up for a ride or someone you didn't know offering candy to children. The innocence of such things soon changed, because of a few gruesome crimes, which later became quite common. In fact, the dark side of strangers has become serial, as in killers and pedophiles. Trust is no longer taken for granted. Talking to strangers today can be deathly. And so we have to ask if the Bible prohibits our people from conversing with the strangers of forced integration. Actually, it’s more than just mere conversation; it is the mindset of modern social interaction.
Have you ever wondered why so many of our brethren don’t seem to care when you tell them about the covenant and the promises that our God made with us? Many just go on and live their lives neither agreeing nor disagreeing with anything that you say.
It must be similar to what they did to the concentration camps in the Soviet Union and in Germany in World War II. They made the captives of those camps to be in a fog; they didn’t object to most of the regulations that they were given. The number of guards was cut to 75% of what they had been before. That has happened because we are serving other gods; we are not obeying the Commandments that our God gave to us.
They put a by-product of aluminum in the water. It made the prisoners docile and inhibited their questioning the authority of the camp leaders. Later they convinced many of the people to vote to add it to their water supply too; its name—fluoride. It is now in most of the public water systems in America.
This is a good explanation as to why we will have in January as the head of the Federal Reserve System, Janet Yellen, the first jewish woman. and as her assistant Stanley Fischer, a jew who was born in Africa and was head of the Israeli national banks for eight years before coming in his present position in America. He was a former head of the economic department at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, former number two official at the International Monetary Fund and former chief economist at the World Bank.
From the KJV we read about “strong delusion” and that was my original title for this message. However, upon reviewing other translations, instead of the word ‘delusion’ was the word ‘error.’ The Ferrar Fenton read “the energy of error”; the Christogenea NT read, “an operation of error” and still others said, “a working of error,” “a deluding influence,” and “a misleading influence.” I wondered how could there be such a disparity of terms and what are these verses really talking about. It obviously has something to do with the contest between truth and lies. Common sense here tells us that the best safeguard against error or more poignantly the delusion (the mental condition in which you believe something that is not true) is “the love of the truth.”
The ancient jews of this story in Joshua 9 tells of how they deceived our forefathers as they were fighting the war over the land of Palestine. Our God had instructed Israel to kill every father, mother and child in the area; to make no covenant with any of the people. But when the Gibeonites [close-by tribe] heard of what Israel’s God had done for them, they decided that they would disguise themselves as being a people from a far-away land who had come to serve Israel. The jews deceived Israel and got them to make a covenant with them. This action saved the lives of the Gibeonites but brought much difficulties to the Israelites.
How many people do you know that don’t like what President Obama/Sorento has done? How about Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton? How about Vernon Jordan, or….how about Nelson Mandela? They all support or supported Communist’s ideals and strategies. What’s up?
Nelson Mandela had something in common with Martin Luther King, Jr. To the Israeli he was a hero and is called a “mensch” or “great man” because he helped to overthrow “racism.” The leaders of Israeli lauded Mandela while overseeing the deportation and imprisonment of Israeli black immigrants, saying Mandela “led the fight against racism.”
Christianity today is plagued with tens of thousands of denominations, because Christians have lost the meaning of biblical adoption and have adapted to other religions of the world. Apostasy means a ‘falling away’ and abandoning previously held beliefs. Nothing could be more reinventing than the hyphenated “judeo-Christianity” and cause for another writ of divorcement from God. At one time, blacks and other dark people knew their place in White society; and White Christian Americans understood their place in God’s scheme of things; His law and order for a civilized society. They were the ‘heirs of the promise’ with a divine destiny.
Sandy Hook is nothing more than a big….no not a big, but a massive hoax—a false flag. Just like all the others: Gulf of Tonkin, Vietnam; Pearl Harbor, Hawaii; The Lusitania; 9/11 destruction of the Twin Towers and the Pentagon; Aurora Movie Theater shooting; Boston Marathon bombing; JFK assassination; Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting….it doesn’t hold up when you investigate it.
It was over twenty years ago while I was teaching high school math; when one of my math students asked me a question. It was during lunch time and we were both in my math room munching on the lunch they we brought from home. She asked: “Have you read Peter Marshall’s book, “The Light and the Glory.” I knew a Peter and Catherine Marshall; Peter was the Senate Chaplain and his wife was a best-selling author. But this was co-authored by their son. I answered, “No. I was not aware of the book. What is it about?” She answered: “Well, we are using this book in Sunday School class. It tells about the Pilgrims and how God performed all the miracles for them.”
That piqued my interest. I hadn’t heard of “all these miracles” that God performed for the Pilgrims in the early days of our nation. So, after I went home I bought the book. I read it and was fascinated.
That fall we had our Thanksgiving meal at our house. I mean the church’s first Thanksgiving meal; which is, of course, around two weeks before the real Thanksgiving Day celebrated by our nation. We started celebrating it because why noted a lack of the correct motives in celebrating it with family and friends. It wasn’t supposed to be a social event and a sports day, but a religious service. God was to be thanked for His kindness and goodness towards us in giving us a good harvest.
I was brought up as an Arminian; i.e. a man who chooses God. I never heard the words election used in the Bible. I could have read the words, but had no idea what it meant. When I was about 21 years old, I read a religious newspaper that taught “Calvinism.” They actually were proud and emphasized what John Calvin taught; and I was surprised to learn that is what most American churches taught and believed two centuries ago: the “TULIP doctrine”:
Total depravity Unconditional election Limited Atonement Irresistible grace Perseverance and preservation of the saints (Eternal security)
Compared with the Calvinistic five points is the Arminian position:
This verse is given as the verse which is used as the one which the Universalist uses to fleece our people into giving part of their money to them in order to think that they are doing this for Jesus Christ. Look at these recent examples:
I have used the phrase ‘God’s plan for the ages’ many times, but have not expounded upon it before. So I thought today would be the perfect time to talk about it. If we have a perfect God, then He must have a perfect plan. Thus far, we have learned what it means for the White race to “Be ye perfect,” to be ‘White Supremacists’ and to believe in the perfect incarnation of God in Jesus Christ. From today’s reading in Romans 8, we can surmise that there is a perfect orchestration of events as they unfold throughout history and our own lives, that give us a glimpse of Paradise, where God’s Kingdom was a done deal for the first man or Adam, which 6,000 years ago (more or less) did not include other races (they have never qualified as Adam-man). So Paradise was basically an all-White society by Intelligent Design and it was not without a purpose. Although since that time, it has been obscured and driven in all the wrong directions away from God’s intent. That’s because Adam-man has not always loved God with all his heart or responded to a divine calling. God is perfect by way of His promises, none of which have ever been broken. Prophecy is another element to convince His people that He is the only entity in the universe that can perfectly predict the future.
I’ve never picked an interpolation, a spurious addition to the biblical text, for the Scripture reading before, but a combination of things warrants a review of what should have been learned in church kindergartens when we learned to count with our fingers. We have had some dynamic guest speakers in the last few weeks. Dr. Blanchard said that America, for all intents and purposes, is dissolved and we can thank the apostate church prostituting itself for the almighty state. And then, Pastor Brian Jones gave us a sermon about ‘Taking the Lord’s Name in Vain,’ which was much more than just cussing. That Sunday, we sang the old hymnal ‘Holy, Holy, Holy’ containing the 3 in 1 gods of the iconic dogma of the Trinity with the lyrics “God in three persons, blessed Trinity.” It’s ironic that another stanza says, “there is none beside Thee [in reference to Isaiah 45:6], Perfect in power.” This song has always bothered me, because it’s based on the catholic lie and manmade invention of the Trinity, a word and concept that is not to be found anywhere in the Bible.
This Psalm was made when David was dethroned from being King of Israel by his own son--Absalom. Absalom was David’s third son; so how did he get ahead of his brothers? This story is all part of the bigger one—how David is different from all of the recent Presidents of our nation—the United States of America.
In the beginning of my ministry, I gave messages which covered the entire Biblical career of David, the King of Israel. These sermons lasted for about four or five years; intermingled along with other sermons. After I preached about David, I spent a couple of years on the biblical history of Elijah. Then I spent another couple of years preaching on Genesis 1-11.
As I was about half-way through giving these messages concerning King David, I thought of the following question: Who would like to trade places with David? In other words, who would like to live their life as David?
