By far the most important event on the Apostle Peter’s missionary journey was the conversion of Cornelius. Cornelius was a Roman army officer, stationed in Caesarea. This city had been rebuilt by Herod [an Edomite] and was named in honor of Caesar Augustus. It was the chief port of Palestine and the official Roman capital of the provinces of Judea and Samaria. There the Roman governor had his headquarters.
He was in Jerusalem, usually, only during the feasts. The Italian Cohort, made up largely of freedmen, was probably a special detachment of troops, to be used by the governor to put down disorders that might arise among the Judeans.
Cornelius, weary of Roman paganism, had been worshipping the God of Israel, but was missing something. Verse two describes him as “devout”, a “God-fearer”, a “giver of alms”, and “prayerful” to Almighty God. In fact, his “whole house feared God.” Who was this special man? What race was he? What was unusual about this situation?
6) “And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made of God unto OUR fathers:
7) Unto which promiseOUR twelve tribes, instantly serving God day and night, hope to come. For which hope’s sake, king Agrippa, I am accused of the Jews.
-------------------------------------------------------- Who would call Raphael Warnock, one of the two new senators of Georgia, a valid Christian pastor? “America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness,” he preached from his pulpit. Warnock is a black pastor of a black church in Atlanta. It is the church where the former communist civil rights leader, Martin Luther King, Jr. (real name: Michael King) pastored. Warnock hates the military, the police, the nation and he is very, very, very pro-abortion. Is any true Christian, especially a pastor, pro-abortion? He also is a communist. And he is a so-called Christian pastor! Hogwash!
The second Georgia senator, Jon Ossoff, said the following: “I’m descended from Ashkenazi [Jewish]immigrants who fled pogroms in the early 20th century, and I grew up among relatives who were Holocaust survivors.” [Ossoff (has an Australian mother and a Lithuanian Jewish father, who came to the United States in the early 1900s) was born in Georgia in 1987. The second world war ended in 1945. Ossoff was born 42 years after the war was over. So, when Ossoff was growing up, it would be around the year 2000, (he would have been 13 years old), his relative holocaust survivors (on his father’s side) had to be at least 75 years or older. Do you think that he grew up among relatives who were Holocaust (death camp) survivors? Did all the survivors from the death camp, who survived, who he mentioned above, move to Atlanta from Lithuania? Or do you think he just said this for political advantage?
The Apostle Paul, at his trial, was not accused by the Jews of saying that God chose certain people of all races to salvation by His secret will. In other words, he was not accused of being a Calvinist.
The Apostle Paul, at his trial, was not accused by the Jews of saying that any individual of any race could chose Almighty God as their Savior by saying a sinner’s prayer. In other words, he was not accused of being an Arminian.
He was not accused by the Jews of not starting a soup kitchen for everyone in his community where he was preaching. In other words, he was not accused of being a community preacher.
The Jews accused the Apostle Paul of preaching a racial message. It was about the “hope of the promise” that was made unto the twelve tribes’ fathers. That was the promise that the twelve tribes hoped to come. The Jews accused the Apostle Paul of being a racist, of preaching a racist message of hope to a group of people who were kin to each other. He was accused of being a Christian Identity preacher.
Calvinism and Arminianism are the two main theologies of today's Christian world. But they are both wrong. See why Christian Identity is superior to either of these two theologies and what is wrong with their views.
Calvinism, Arminianism or Christian Identity – which one is correct? Or are they all wrong? Calvinism and Arminianism would both deny that a person who was elected by Almighty God could be a Baal worshipper – he would either be a non-elect or an individual who had fallen from grace. The Calvinists would say that the person was a “non-elect”. The Arminian would say that the Israelites didn’t choose God. They both would state that the majority of Israelites in the Old Testament were “unsaved” or “lost”.
6) “And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made of God unto our fathers:
7) Unto which promise our twelve tribes, instantly serving God day and night, hope to come. For which hope’s sake, king Agrippa, I am accused of the Jews.
The apostle Paul makes his defensive argument in the court in which he states that he is “judged for the hope of the promise made of God unto our fathers.” What promise was that? What promise was “made of God unto our fathers?” And if the promise was made unto our fathers, that would make it a racial promise because it is made with a family!
It is this racial promise that the Apostle Paul is said to be “accused of [by] the Jews.” It is this racial promise that “our twelve tribes” hope to take part in.
Scripture Reading: Psalm 15:1: “LORD, who shall abide in Thy tabernacle? Who shall dwell in the holy hill?
What great questions in today's scripture reading! These are some of the greatest questions that could be asked by man. What is your answer to these two questions that are asked by King David? What is the answer given by the God of David? The answer is given in the rest of the verses of this short Psalm.
The word “abide” means to dwell there continually. It does not mean to visit or to be a guest or spend a short time in worshipping there. The ungodly might worship in the earthly tabernacle, but would they abide in the city where God lives forever?
Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 7:6 “For thou art an holy people[Israel; with whom the everlasting covenant was made] unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto Himself, aboveall people that are upon the face of the earth.”
And now we come to the fifth part of this series. What other issue does neither party endorse? What issue do both parties condemn? Both parties are in total agreement that their view on white supremacy and white privilege is racist, and that it is an evil, horrible sin. They both agree that there should be no group of people who are somehow above all other groups. They totally ignore or explain away that Deuteronomy 7:6 and the many other verses in the Bible that teaches that the God of the Bible chose a racial people (not people out of all races) to be a special people to Himself! And they also totally ignore that there is another mongrel group who hates and wants to kill the people who the LORD God chose!
The above scripture teaches that a certain nation, Edom, prevented the nation of Israel from passing through their territory in a peaceful way; even after they had promised to pay for the water that their cattle and they would drink out of their streams. Seems like there was some hatred between these two groups of people! As a result, Israel started on their last phase of their journey to Canaan, going around both Edom and Moab, to come into the promised land from the east of the Jordan River.
This is the fourth part of the series, “Evil Good and Good Evil.” The series explains that there are many of our LORD God’s laws that He has given to us that are not in either the Republican or Democratic party platforms.
Article includes a video of Pastor Elmore's presentation at the 2020 Homecoming Conference.
The capitalist integrationist Republicans are more correct than the very hardcore communist Democrats, but they both do not know what “Made America Great” and what will “Make America Great Again”. Did God’s blessing on the commonfathers [Abraham, Isaac and Jacob] of the American settlers have anything to do with the greatness of America?
The Democrats are demo(n)cratically inspired. They are threatening Senators, small business owners and opponents of their political and religious views with physical harm, even death. Who are these Burners, Looters and Murderers? And who is paying them to come to the locations that an in an uproar of rioting? Men like the Jew Norm Ison, the Jew George Soros and the woman like the Jew Susan Rosenberg, who was paroled on the last day President Bill Clinton was in office. They also are worshippers of strange god(s)—most are billionaires and the have financed the attempt to make America a communist nation.
Kamala Harris, the Democratic candidate for vice-president, raised funds (contributed to by many high-level Democrats) to pay to get the rioters out of prison as fast as they were put in. That should be considered treasonous behavior.
The Republicans are a better choice to have win than the Democrats. But they aren’t the best choice either. But at least, they are advocating a couple of God’s laws being reinstated. The best choice would be a party that advocates the keeping of all of God’s holy laws. But that choice is not available to us now.
Who was the book of Isaiah written to? Who is the “them” referred to in this verse; “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil,…”? Isaiah was a prophet to…whom? Where was Isaiah living?
It would be preposterous to say that he was living in Africa or Asia or South America, or North America or Europe. Isaiah didn’t live on any of these continents…he lived in the southern kingdom of Judah. He was a prophet to the Southern kingdom of Judah. He was a contemporary to King Hezekiah [king of Judah] and prayed with him when the remnant kingdom was hopelessly involved in a situation that almost spelled the doom of his kingdom. The “them” in this verse is referring to the people in the southern kingdom of Judah—no one else.
This verse tells of one of the many “woes of Judah” that was pronounced upon them. Isaiah tells them that everything that they feel like doing is right in their own eyes; they call evil just as good as good itself. Darkness to them is as light itself; bitter is as sweet as sweet itself. In fact, they love darkness more than light. They are confused as to what darkness is…they call it light.
What is one thing that you know about Manasseh’s father—Hezekiah? Hezekiah did what was right in the eyes of the LORD God; his son did just the opposite. Hezekiah ruled for 29 years over the kingdom of Judah. The northern kingdom was taken captive by Assyria by the end of Hezekiah’s sixth year of reign. The northern kingdom was placed in the land of Assyria where they eventually went on to the lands of the northwest. Why were they captured? Because “…they obeyed not the voice of the LORD their God, but transgressed His covenant, and all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded, and would not hear them, nor do them” (2 Kings 18:12). But what happened to the southern kingdom?
Scripture Reading: 2 Timothy 3:4 “Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God”
We are living in a world that is up-side down in its moral activities. What used to be a sin is now politically correct. The BLM movement is one of the communistic change agents that is trying to transform our nation.
Scripture Reading: Nehemiah 9:26“Nevertheless they were disobedient, and rebelled against Thee, and cast Thy law behind their backs, and slew Thy prophets which testified against them to turn them to Thee, and they wrought great provocations.”
In the above introductory verse, who do the pronouns “they” and “their” and “them” represent and who does “Thee” and “Thy” represent? Who is Nehemiah talking about? You can’t understand what the prophet is saying unless you understand who the pronouns stand in place of in the sentence.
The story of universalism is based on the common ancestry of all people. You have heard these precepts of anti-Christ doctrine constantly: All races are created equal. All races are descended from Noah. All races are descended from Adam and Eve. Every one of earth are brothers to each other.
Where are the verses in the Bible that back these statements up?
There were several articles in the Cincinnati Enquirer that were disturbing to me since my last sermon. The first one was from the June 27, 2020 Sports page, in an article entitled, “CLUBHOUSE ALLIES; Reds' pitchers use platforms for Black Lives Matter support:
Cincinnati Reds' pitcher Matt Bowman doesn’t have a large social media platform. He has a little more than 2,000 followers on Twitter, with most of his tweets from four or five years ago.
With people protesting around the country for racial equality, Bowman felt it was a moment when he needed to speak out. He was inspired by social media posts from outspoken Black players around the league and wanted to publicly show support for them. He reached out to teammate Jesse Biddle, who had nearly 9,000 followers on Instagram, and a few other players about matching donations to social justice charities, like the NAACP, Equal Justice Initiative and the Southern Poverty Law Center, along with a clean-up fund in Minneapolis…”
