During this time there was a terrific revival of religion. The reform that the ruler of the land launched cleaned up the country and made the truth of God known and the worship of God popular. Who could fail to be pleased that the Scripture was once again known and preached?
The most popular preacher of this time was a man of prominence. When you saw him at the head of the flourishing religious establishment, you could not help feeling better. His enthusiasms were electric. When he stretched out his arm in blessing, everyone, from the least to the greatest, knew that they were included. Everyone loved to hear him preach. He was positive, affirmative, and confident. He had the ability to draw out the best from everything. He was able to search the Scriptures and find texts that made the darkest days bright. But his messages were far from being accurate.
When God’s people failed to follow the laws of their God, God raised up a couple of the countries nearby to invade the land and take the people of Israel into exile. First, the Syrians took the Israelite tribes east of the Jordan River and then the Assyrians invaded the rest of the House of Israel and the House of Judah and then later the nation of Babylon invaded Jerusalem and took the remaining captives of the House of Judah to Babylon. Before the exile, false prophets had claimed that what Jeremiah prophesied was untrue and that the exile would only last for two years. Jeremiah warned that the exile would last for 68 more years.
“Build homes, and plan to stay. Plant gardens and eat the food they produce. Marry and have children. Then find spouses for your children so that you may have many grandchildren. Multiply! Do not dwindle away! And work for the peace and prosperity of Babylon where I sent you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, for its welfare will determine your welfare” (Jeremiah 29:5-7 NLT).
This sermon will begin with a short question: Who wrote the two paragraphs, which contained the above verse (Jeremiah 29:7),which will begiven shortly in this sermon, which was taken from the author’s small booklet? Everyone here will recognize the author’s name when it is given. Was he a preacher, a teacher or just an ordinary believer? Maybe he wasn’t a Christian at all. Maybe he was an atheist or an agnostic or a skinhead. Some say that he was a hero; many say that he was a villain. Some say that he was both.
“And I, [Jesus, the Son of God] if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me.”
Universalism has evolved beyond the traditional topics of salvation and future punishment, and now covers many other theological issues and topics. Universalism began during the early days of Christianity and has fostered as a heresy ever since. It received a big boost in Europe in 1569 when Transylvanian King John Sigismund issued an edict establishing religious freedom. The Edict of Torda expanded the limits of religious freedom far beyond the standard of 16th-century Europe. The decree did not put a complete end to discrimination, because official status was granted only to the Catholic, Lutheran, and Calvinist clergymen; but Unitarian, Orthodox, Armenian, Jewish, and Muslim believers could also freely practice their religions. Although neither the Calvinist nor Unitarian side was declared the winner of the debate at this session, John Sigismund accepted Unitarian ideas, which made him the only Unitarian monarch in history.
17) “And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakes of the root and fatness of the olive tree:
18) Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.”
These two verses are a portion of the mystery of God that is mentioned, seven verses later, that pertains to the grafting of the branch of the wild olive tree into the good olive tree:
Romans 11:25: “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits, that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles [nations] be come in.”
There are five important questions that need to be answered correctly in order to understand the mystery of the verses in Romans chapter 11.
What do these verses mean? What is Jeremiah saying to the kingdom of Judah? Is it important to know today?
God often pictures Israel as being planted as a noble vine or a goodly tree; a right seed. Jeremiah then asks a disturbing question. How did Israel change from a noble vine into a degenerate plant of a strange [or alien, or foreigner or adulterous] vine?
Could Jeremiah, if he were alive today, ask the same question? Is the House of Judah and the House of Israel turned into a degenerate plant of a strange vine or is it still a noble vine? Is the kingdom likened to a well cultivated vine that has grown into a wild plant? Is the kingdom likened to a filthy object that no amount of washing with soap can cleanse? Is the kingdom likened to a woman who has left her husband for other men? Is the kingdom likened to a person who has lusted after other strange women, like a camel in heat lusts for a mate? Is the kingdom likened to the eagerness of a thirsty traveler who walks the desert searching for water till the sandals drop off his feet? Could the same thing be said of the Israelite nations of today? Are they being turned into a degenerate vine?
There are three separate, diverse groups of people mentioned in verse 21:
“Ye”, “thou”, “thy” or “holy people”: These are the seed of Jacob or the covenant people of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They had the LORD God as their king, until they requested that one of their own people be king instead of Him. They were forbidden to eat any animal that died of itself, but they were permitted to give the dead animal away or sell it.
“Stranger” [#1616, Strong’s]: sojourner. To this group of people, the Israelites were told that they could give the animal that died of itself to them and then the people that they gave it to could eat it.
“Alien” [#5237, Strong’s]: alien, foreigner, outlandish. To this group of people, the Israelites were told that they could sell the animal that died of itself and then the individuals that bought it could eat it.
Are these introductory verses correct or not? Did God say that He chose the seed of His covenant people to be above all people. Or did He say that His people would be below all people? Or did He say that they would be equal to all people?
If there is a group of people who are above all people; is that not supremacy? Is this not white supremacy, if you believe that the white race is the “seed” of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? Or is it really the supremacy of Almighty God, for He is the one who makes His chosen ones supreme?
Part 1: This topic is very seldom preached in any of the many churches in our nation. Would you be surprised as to who they say went to hell? There are millions of Christians who say this, some every week, in their church services. What is meant by this?
Part 2: White people have forgotten their God. They have forgotten that a Christian must keep the laws that were given to him by His God, or they must accept His judgments against them. Look how many of the Laws of God have been discarded, and the laws of another god have been substituted in the United States. Then ask yourself if the blight of the large cities is a judgement against the acts of the White people of America?

“I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, And in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into hell …”
Was the Apostle’s Creed true or false regarding this four-worded phrase: "He descended into hell"? There have been millions of Christians who have repeated this Creed in unison in their congregations since it was first written over the last 1500 years. Very few preachers ever preach on this subject.
Modern liturgy and catechism of the Roman Catholic Church, Lutheranism, Anglicanism, Presbyterianism, the Moravian Church, the Methodist Church and the Congregational Church all participate in saying the Apostles’ Creed. What is meant by this phrase "He descended into hell"?
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.
