Last September our church went to Indiana for a picnic lunch and to visit the wife of a dear friend of ours who died suddenly in a terrible auto accident about a year ago. Well, the womenfolk gravitated to the living room and the men were outside talking Christian Identity. I moseyed into the house and saw all the women, so I sat next to my wife and asked what have you been talking about and she said, “an interesting discussion about heaven,” to which I replied by putting my arm around her and saying, “Well, here's a little slice of heaven for ya.” And all of a sudden, they all broke out in hysterical laughter, much to my perplexing chagrin. I asked what are they laughing about? Evidently, they were into a serious subject and in walks a man who makes a rather flippant remark that breaks the ice. Later, my wife suggested I do a sermon on heaven and voila, I have a ready-made title ready to go. Many of us have lost loved ones in recent times so I think this message will not only help me with the loss of my mother and father, but others I know who are going through the same experience. I got to thinking that I haven't read anything in CI about heaven since Pastor Sheldon Emry. It's probably because the Bible doesn't say a whole lot about the heaven, which we know as God's abode, although heaven can mean many other things, in spite of a plethora of denominational garbage that takes way too much latitude in preying upon people's emotions, failing to rightly divide the word of truth. Heaven sometimes just means the sky or an elevated place of authority. And there's probably nothing more ingrained in people's psyche than what they think about the hereafter, other than perhaps Christmas. It's a tough nut to crack.

Who is today's Scripture reading about? When is this going to happen or has it already happened? “They shall turn away their ears from the truth” means that they will not listen to the historical, biblical account, but instead they would believe a foolish or improbable story.
Did that happen in Timothy’s day or has it reoccurred over and over down through the centuries? I used to belong to a church that taught that the Laws of God were nailed to the cross of Jesus Christ. That, they said, meant that we do not have to obey His laws because they are now put away--abolished. The only thing that now matters is Jesus and you must believe in Him. I don’t think they considered the consequences of this doctrine!
The church began with their singing of the Psalms that are found in the middle of their Bible. The Psalms were put to music and the congregation sang the praises to our God. Over the last several hundreds of years new hymns were written; some good, some bad. But in the last fifty years, something new has slipped into the churches: the singing of rock ‘n’ roll. The church is drawing closer and closer to the world and not to God. The church is serving other gods and not the God of the Bible. The church has learned the way of the heathen.
You might be wondering what today's Scripture reading, the parable of the great supper, has to do with the sermon title, a #1 hit song from 1963; the year the jews assassinated Camelot. The song was written by Wiener, Gold, Gottlieb and Gluck, which sounds like a jewish law firm. It was sung by Lesley Sue Goldstein, also known as Lesley Gore. Maybe somebody has made the same or similar observations as I have, but I like to think this song has gone unanalyzed until now. One can only probe the subconscious mind of the jew with the assistance of the Holy Spirit to read between the lines. I originally titled this message 'Have You Got Your Invitation Yet?' and then I heard this song in my head in a nostalgic moment for no apparent reason. Now I know why... thank you Lord, it's the perfect antithesis or maybe antichrist. The distinctions between the parable and the song are somewhat uncanny.
The Foursquare Church is continuing the vision of Aimee Semple McPherson to reach out to the Jewish community through the efforts, service, and support of the Foursquare Rabbis Caucus. “It is important at this stage that we carefully nurture the seed of Messianic hope that's been planted here tonight,” said Kurt Reust, a licensing Foursquare Messianic leader from The Rock, a Foursquare Church in Anaheim, California.
This Inaugural Messianic Passover Seder is intended to be the first of many. As the Foursquare Rabbis Caucus grows and matures, it hopes to sponsor similar events in order to build bridges between the Messianic Movement and the Church, bringing together Jew and Gentile to further the Kingdom of God. “For God Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall... that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace” Ephesians 2:14-15.
We've been looking at the sacred cow of full body immersion baptism. Baptism is not really the best word, biblically speaking, for the practice of submerging oneself in a body of water. I think what has happened is cognitive dissonance; when two things are so similar that the original intent is ignored for something else. Our race has suffered from being shortchanged on important principles of biblical events such as the Flood account of Noah being borrowed by non-Adamic cultures. After awhile, every stranger has their 'flood' legend, and the presumption becomes that it was worldwide, rather than local. If baptism is something other than water immersion, then their New Testament exegesis of Old Testament types and shadows cannot be supported. They try to incorporate the parting of the Red Sea as some sort of baptizo on the Israelites, however, if you recall, it was Pharaoh's army that experienced the full body immersion. And it was not Noah and his family that received the full body immersion during the flood. The principle of the original has been lost or is not recognized. Just as God's chosen people don't know who they are, we have a situation today where the wrong people are calling themselves Israel. It behooves us, therefore, to identify the principles of baptism from Genesis to Revelation.
Researching the subject of baptism has taken many twists and turns in an attempt to discover the truth. In our series, "The Shining Light of Glory", not only were many parallels made between biblical light and water baptism, but also that they were one and the same. This prompted some curiosity as to why there is such a diversity of interpretations as to what baptism really is and where those dogmas come from. After reading assertions about full body immersion-styled baptisms that came from the pagan mystery religions, I began research to prove whether or not this was true, because I didn't want to advocate something that was contrary to the Word of God. However, what I discovered was far from such a simple premise.
Over the expanse of time, the history of baptism has become very convoluted. I dare say that if you ask a dozen Christians what the meaning of baptism is, you'll get a dozen different answers. After half a year, I had traversed, in depth, hundreds of articles, dozens of books and prayerfully seeking what God would have us do. "Seek, and ye shall find" (Mt. 7:7). I think I've found some unconfusing resolves to this issue. It is not my intent to create controversy or jerk anyone's emotional chain.
In criminal law, William Blackstone formulated the principle that: “It is better that ten guilty persons escape than one innocent suffer.” The actual numbers or ratio is not as important as the idea that the State should not cause undue or mistaken harm "just in case." Historically, the details of the ratio change, but the message that government and the courts must err on the side of innocence is constant. The concept is much older than The Commentaries on the Laws of England, which is why I choose today's Scripture in Genesis 18, about the destruction of Sodom which, it must be noted, God did eventually destroy, but with the innocent getting out of Dodge beforehand. Similarly, we are told in Rev. 18:4 to, “Come out of her [Mystery Babylon] My people [Israel]... that ye receive not of her plagues.” Blackstone's maxim was also absorbed into American common law, cited repeatedly by our Founding Fathers, later becoming a standard drilled into law students all the way into the 21st century. I would be shocked and dismayed if Kurtis' prosecutors never heard of this fundamental precept of law. Perhaps it's as diminished as one hour of instruction on nutrition in medical schools. Or the spiritual analogy from seminaries that religion is only for people to feel good.
“Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them” Heb. 13:3 ESV. I wonder how many Christians heed this passage or even understand the ramifications of what they're being admonished to do. Although it's not Scripture, we have heard the idiomatic expression, “There but for the grace of God go I.” I wonder how many people have committed crimes and have never been caught? I wonder how many Christians think so and so should be in jail for something they think he did wrong, when in fact incarceration is no where to be found in God's Law. The only justice meted out in the Bible is restitution or death, which is a pretty good deterrent against crime or what we call sin. But, this passage in Hebrews isn't necessarily talking about criminal actions, or debt or immorality and certainly not your more heinous crimes of malevolence, but rather those who are in bondage for the sake of Christ. Today we call them political prisoners or prisoners of war (POW's). This is often the case with God's elect standing on principles and demonized in a nation under occupation and not under God. You know you're doing something right when “men shall revile you, and persecute you, an shall say all manner of evil against you falsely” for the sake of Christ (Mt. 5:11). I dare say that the antichrist jew would like to put every racist, what they consider an “antisemite,” and every politically incorrect hate group in concentration camps to die. They are so bold today, to talk of the White race and Christianity in the past tense, in the most disparaging terms. But in spite of this, the Holy Spirit compels White men to proclaim the Good News of the Gospels and to produce good fruit. You usually won't find them in the churches, but you'll find them in the trenches of racial consciousness. That's where the real battle is being fought, in the hearts and minds of our kind.
We should not forget those who dare take a stand. We should admire those who, as the KJV puts it, “Prove[s] all things; hold fast [hold on to] that which is good” I Thes. 5:21. The CNT renders it, “But scrutinize all things, hold fast that which is right.” Unfortunately, when a society has a government that no longer adheres to proof or scrutiny, it no longer is a terror to the evil, but to the good and righteous. In lieu of jewish death camps for the goyim, we have instead a criminal justice growth industry, whereby innocent men and women can be thrown into prison on the flimsiest of pretext(s).
If our people don't understand why they were born into this world, they certainly won't understand why other races occupy the same planet. In light of the recent alien invasion under the guise of “children” and the congressional clamor for immigration reform, I've been hearing this inane cliché that 'it's not their fault they were born that way.' What way? As mongrels, or as the Bible identifies them as 'strangers.' In other words, anyone who is not born White, cannot be blamed for what they are. Does that make any sense? Perhaps to the thinking of a universalist or egalitarian, it would be heartless to blame these little Latinos crossing our borders illegally. But to Christian Identity, the issue should not be the legal status of young goats, but rather their racial disposition. The last two messages about Kurtis Monschke dealt with the subject of innocence. Today, I want to discuss the theology of guilt, because if we don't know the source of unrighteousness, how can we ever hope to know what is righteous?
Mormonism strives with great effort to masquerade as the restored Christian church complete with an exclusive message, infallible prophets, higher revelations for a new dispensation which the Mormons would have us believe began with Joseph Smith, Jr. in the 1820’s. Joseph Smith wrote in the Pearl of Great Price, Chapter 2, verses 1-25; that when he asked the Personages who stood above him in the light, which of all the sects (Christian churches) was right and which one should he join, he received the following answer:
All Christian churches were apostate; they were all wrong; No Christian church.
All Christian creeds were an abomination to God; No Christian theology.
All professors of Christianity were corrupt; No Christians.
In other words, a restoration of true Christianity was needed, and that he, Joseph Smith, Jr., had been chosen to launch the new dispensation. It all began in 1823 when the angel Moroni came to Joseph’s bedside and told him where the golden plates were hid in the hill Cumorah near Palmyra, New York. Smith began to “translate” the “reformed Egyptian” hieroglyphics inscribed thereupon by means of the “Urim and Thummin,” a type of miraculous spectacles which the always-thoughtful angel Moroni had the foresight to provide for the new budding seer of the new Christian church.
The “miraculous translation” taken from the hidden “golden plates” that the angel had told him where to find them; that translated word for word, even the mistakes, from the King’s James Version of the Bible which was written almost 2000 years after the golden plates were buried in the ground; became known as the Book of Mormon.
Mormon theology is a polytheistic teaching that the universe is inhabited by different gods who procreate spirit children which are in turn are clothed with bodies on different planets; Adam-god being the god of this planet. Adam-god had sexual relations with Mary to produce Jesus, the Son of god. Lucifer was a spirit brother of Jesus prior to His birth. The Garden of Eden was located in Missouri and not in Asia! Mormonism is a universal religion; for they believe in universal salvation that all men will be saved, but each one in their own order. Jesus will return to Missouri when he returns.
Can you tell from the above that Mormonism is definitely not Christian? It didn’t restore Christianity; it eliminates it.
Dr. Ramsey is remembered for his church in Nebraska being America’s first padlocked church for courageously refusing to bow to the government demand that he license their church school. He went to federal prison for standing his ground on Christian principles. He is also known for his super conferences and the Court of Divine Justice. Pastor Everett is a well known and respected Christian Identity author and speaker. Click here to visit his website.
This scripture reading tells of the victory that Israel had over the Midianites when they slew the two princes of that nation. Remember that God had told Gideon 32,000 troops that Israel had, they would vaunt themselves against their God, saying, “Mine own hand hath saved me” (Judges 7:2). So God instructed Gideon to eliminate 31,700 of the 32,000 troops: Israel only had 300 soldiers left to fight the battle against the Midianites and Amalekites (Judges 7:6). That is lowering the number of Israel’s army by over 99%!
The army of Israel was cut by over 99+%. First, all those who were afraid were let go; that was 22,000. Then 9700 men were let go who drank from the pond by putting their mouth in the water. This left only 300 to fight against an army of over 135,000! It lowered the odds from 1 to 5 to around 1 to 500.The soldiers of Gideon, which included men (no women) from the tribes of Manasseh, Asher, Zebulun, Naphtali and later Ephraim pursued after the Midianites and destroyed the enemy leaders named Zebah and Zalmunna and over 135,000 soldiers of the Midianites. He was so successful that the “men of Israel said unto Gideon, Rule thou over us, both thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son also; for thou hast delivered us, from the hand of Midian” (Judges 8:22). Gideon answered: “I will not rule over you, neither shall my son rule over you; the LORD shall rule over you” (Judges 8:23).
Gideon dwelt in his own house for the last forty years of his life. And he died when he was a good old age. And it followed that after he was dead, that the children of Israel turned again, and played the harlot with Baalim, and made Baal-berith their god.
In Psalm 83, both of these nations, the Amalekites (verse 7) and Midianites (verse 9) are mentioned as being enemies of Israel. This victory of Gideon is reflected in this Psalm when King David longed for the victory over Israel’s future enemies. “Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb: yea, all the princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna, (verse 11).” It looked forward to a time when their adversaries would be confounded forever (verse 18).
