In answer to a post called, “Here is All I Want”

It is very rare that I get into this area. I do not plan to often, but in this case it was an opportunity to show some benefits of God’s Law.

The Obamanation: Would never have been president. He is not a Christian. It is a violation of God’s Law to have someone of another people rule over us.

Borders: Closed. There are many verses hidden in the Greek text including 2 Corinthians 6:17. (The context is people, not things.)

“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate (to set off by boundary), saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean; and I will receive you”.

Language: English Isaiah 28:11, Zephaniah 3:9. English is derived from Hebrew and uses many of the same idioms.

Culture: The same as the founding fathers who signed the declaration and said, “We the People of the United States… to ourselves and our Posterity”. No other people were intended. Only the people who had been Christians for almost 2000 years.

Drug Free: God gave us Health Laws and all herbs for our benefit. There would be no prescription drugs. Prescription drugs must legally include some poison. A common one for weight loss includes Gila Monster venom. Many shots include King Cobra venom and other toxins including DNA from aborted children. Poisons work by damaging one part of your body to get better test numbers on another part of your body.

No Welfare:

2 Thessalonians 3:10 “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.”

Anyone capable who refuses to work does not eat. No one starves either. God’s economy feeds those in need.

No Freebies, Balanced Budget and no taxes. As I understand it for most of us it is free will offering. Those who actually produce a product and see a profit would pay a tithe. There would be no term limits needed as all the Law we need is already in place.

Unfortunately most people have been taught that this is all somehow evil or that God’s Law is not good enough to do the job or that somehow God did away with His morals and only man’s laws can save us. How have man’s laws worked for us so far?

While the constitution was not terrible, it left out one very important part. All it gave us was a vague statement about a creator and inalienable rights. It never once mentioned Jesus Christ and although many state constitutions did, most of them have been modified to remove that. If Christ had been mentioned in the Bill of Rights and Constitution, it would have been much more difficult to remove. As it is today, those who hate Christ are pretending that those who want this to be a Christian nation again are the one’s trying to change or destroy their “demonocracy”.

Beware of Books Claiming to be Scripture, but are Not

There are several newer “bible” versions that take liberties with God’s word. They change it and editorialize verses to make the bible look like the world. They teach heresy.

Here are two examples.

NLT James 1:1 "This letter is from James, a slave of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am writing to the “twelve tribes”—Jewish believers scattered abroad. Greetings!"
GNT "From James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ: Greetings to all God's people scattered over the whole world."

Both amount to commentaries, not scripture. The first is very bad commentary. The “translators” took it on themselves to decide what God meant with the following phrase from the Greek.

James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad (diaspora – Israelite residents sown in foreign countries), greeting.

The “translators” decided to add their own explanation rather than let God’s Word stand. They equated Israelites with “Jewish believers”. Most will not see a problem with that, but the terms are not equivalent.

Israelites are descendants of Jacob/Israel and are from both houses of Israel, Judah and Israel and are of all 12 tribes. We know that from history, at the time of Jame’s letter, the vast majority were living in Europe, not the Middle East. They were the “far off” people of Ephesians 2. They were not known as Jews.

The word Jew is taken from the word Judah, one of two houses of Israel and one of 12 tribes. At the time James wrote the phrase “twelve tribes who were scattered” in the dispersion he was talking about many more people than the incorrect term Jewish believers means today. Many of those who were Jewish then were not of Israel. Today those who would be of Israel are the very rare exception and usually only from conversion. The fact that they even used the phrase Jewish believers shows their lack of understanding of scripture and history.

“All God’s people” is not as bad, but still not what James wrote. In the context of scripture it is correct, but today has a meaning that is not from scripture. It is still not what James wrote.

It is always best to just read what God said and figure it out using God’s definitions and context in scripture than to add man’s ideas. Man’s ideas usually are not helpful.

Keep His Commandments

I come from a religious group that teaches that God’s Law is done away. They say we are now just under grace. Actually we are called to Keep His Commandments.

Matthew 19:17 “And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.”

John 14:15 “If ye love me, keep my commandments.”

John 15:10 “If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.”

1 John 2:3 “And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.”

1 John 3:22 “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.”

1 John 5:2 “By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.”

1 John 5:3 “For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.”

Revelation 12:17 “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”

Revelation 14:12 “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”

Notice that the last verse connects the commandments of God with faith in Jesus. Which of you think that this can be ignored?

God’s Law is a Blessing

The Christian world has come up with some creative ways to avoid God’s Law and pretend that Grace can exist without Law. New Testament onlyer’s say that the Law of the old scary God is done away and now they just have Christ’s Law based on the new loving God. No one can list off the new laws. It is another aspect of preacher/elder control of the congregation.

Many of the Ten Commandments are repeated in Romans, but it allows them to get rid of those pesky Health Laws and the Sabbath. The translators made sure to translate Hebrews 4:9 in a way to hide its true meaning. Most preachers are trained to tell those who notice that it doesn’t really mean that.

In order to deal with all of Paul’s promotion of the Law and the relationship of God and Israel, they spiritualize a lot of verses in the bible. It allows the preacher to make any verse fit the church doctrine and with enough tangling the world. Churches came up with this elaborate story how God just couldn’t get His people to follow the new and better God. The truth is thousands and thousands of Israel became Christians. The leaders of the day who admitted they were not Israelites, but enemies in John 8 started the persecution. Spiritualizing allows a lot of evil to be normal in churches.

Few realize that getting rid of God’s Law destroys the new covenant and Christ as well.

We only worship one God, not two or three. Christ and God are one.

John 10:30 I and my Father are one.

Isaiah 43:11 I, I am Yahweh; and beside me there is no savior.

If the Law of God is done away there is no new covenant.

Hebrews 10:16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them”.

Without God’s Law we would not know sin. Notice the Grammar and the use of the word is, not was in the following.

Romans 7:7 “What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.”

The New Covenant is God’s Law Written on the Heart

God’s law is a part of His word and must be included in defining Him. God’s morals are found in his law.

God does not change. His morality does not change. I like to tell people that what was sin the day The Adam was placed in the garden is still sin today. What is sin today was sin that very same day. God can not change. To change what is right and wrong from one day to the next or even from one covenant to the next changes God into another god. A god who changes what is right and wrong can not be counted on for stability. He would not be reliable and thus not much of a god.

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

So what does scripture say about the Tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil? Eating of the tree made one know about Good and Evil. The Law of God does the same thing. It teaches one what is good and what is evil. The tree represented the Law of God.

One time in a Sunday bible class an Elder of the church stood up and began his lesson by saying, “There was no Law before Moses.” So I raised my hand and quoted Genesis 26:5.

“Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.”

Abraham knew God’s Law. The Book of Jasher says that Abraham grew up learning God’s Law. Noah and Shem taught Moses God’s Law. Scripture also tells us that Noah knew God’s Law. He had to know it in order to load the correct number of animals on to the ark.

God’s Law represents God’s morals. They are a part of God. God does not change.

However as the book of Hebrews shows there were laws added at the time of Moses in the desert. Those are the Laws that were added due to transgression. Christ is covering those requirements for us now. Christ is our high priest and our sacrifice.

Of course as most new testament Christians would say now that was all the old testament. They say that the Law is done away and that we are under grace. Well grace is not a new testament only concept as shown in the past. If the Law of God is done away, then so is the new covenant. Here is the new covenanent.

Hebrews 10:16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them”.

This is a quote from Jeremiah 31:33. The entire quote is repeated in Hebrews 8:8-10 yet most Christians have no idea that the covenant and the Law are dependent on each other. Get rid of the Law of God and there is no new covenant.

Every Word: Adultery is Adulteration

This has been mentioned before, but needs to be heard again and with more information.

Have you ever noticed that in all of the old testament there was not one instance of Israel converting any other people. Have you ever noticed that not one time did Christ try to convert Pilate or Herod or even most of the Pharisees.

Think about it. In Ezra 10 and Nehemiah 9 there was absolutely no mention of trying to convert or even divorcing the strange wives that some of Israel had taken. What Israel did was acknowledged as sin. They didn’t just separate and let them live there. They sent them all away. There was a physical separation. There is something written in the Law of God that would have Israel separate other peoples and from the mixed multitude as well. Even Rahab who had helped the Israelite spies was required to live outside the camp of Israel.

It is not just a few verses in the old testament. It is not just one verse in the new testament. It is all through the scripture, but it is ignored because of politically correct false doctrine taught today. The base command is Thou Shall not Commit Adultery, adulteration. God does not change His Law nor His morals.

The base meaning for adultery, adulteration is to falsify, to mix, to make inferior, impure. This is the definition of miscegenation. Many will not like that, but the scripture is full of verses that teach just that. One must decide whether they prefer their politically correct church or scripture.

So how does the scripture denote an interracial affair? The scripture does not call it marriage.

In John 1:13 is one example with the phrase “not of blood”. The word blood is actually plural. We know now that the blood of different races is not the same. Biology says otherwise, but it is a popular belief today that we are all of one blood. The following verse is even used.

Acts 17:26 “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation”.

Some say the word blood is missing from Acts 17:26. Even if it is supposed to be in the text the context is ignored to include all nations of the world. Remember that as prophesied by the time of the writing of Acts 17:26 those of Israel stock, those descended from Jacob Israel, were already many nations in the world.

Here is what the Greek says.

Acts 17:26 “And hath made of one blood a part of all nations of men for to dwell on a part of all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation”.

Take a look at the last phrase of Acts 17:26. It is there for a reason. Jude 1:7 talks about fornication and strange flesh. 1 Corinthians 6:17 talks about living physically separate from other people. The context is not about things.

Hosea has quite a bit to say about how Ephraim sinned in this manner.

Hosea 4:1-3 “Hear the word of Yahweh, ye children of Israel: for Yahweh hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.
2 By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and bloods toucheth bloods.
3 Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the living of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.”

There are two things to note in verse two. “Bloods touch bloods”. Both instances of the word blood are plural. It is a way to say different racial bloods touching. Here is the pertinent part of Strong’s definition for the word toucheth.

"properly, to touch, i.e. lay the hand upon (for any purpose; euphemistically, to lie with a woman)"

Intercourse causes a passing of DNA that could influence any future children. If a baby is the result of interracial intercourse then it will have mixed DNA or bloods.

In the Hebrew and Greek the word for adultery includes the meaning of miscegenation. Also the base meaning of the Hebrew word translated bastard in Deuteronomy 23:2 means to alienate, a mongrel. It is a good study to look up all the many instances of “mixed or mingled multitude” found in scripture. However there are more references that are a bit more subtle.

Hosea 7:8 “Ephraim mixed himself among the peoples; Ephraim is a cake not turned.”

So what is a cake not turned? Imagine that you are making pancakes and you forget to flip one. It will be black on one side and white on the other.

Hosea 7:10 “And the pride of Israel testifieth to his face.”

Why? Because his face looks noticeably different. It is unfortunate that simple phrases like these are ignored or not understood all through both old and new testaments.

Hosea 7:9 “Strangers have devoured his strength.”

One More Example.

Hebrews 12:16 “Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.”

We are told that Esau was a fornicator. How did Esau commit fornication? Scripture tells us.

Genesis 26:34-35 “And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite: Which were a grief of mind unto Isaac and to Rebekah.”

Genesis 27:46-28:1 “And Rebekah said to Isaac, I am weary of my life because of the daughters of Heth: if Jacob take a wife of the daughters of Heth, such as these which are of the daughters of the land, what good shall my life do me? And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.”

Why didn’t your preacher teach this? Because he wasn’t taught it. It hasn’t been taught for a long time. Likely your great, great, great, great grandfather knew it. Race mixing is a death penalty offense, or as John wrote it “a sin unto death”. Why is race mixing wrong? Because it gives the strength of your heritage to strangers, to another people.

Daniel 2:44c “and the kingdom shall not be left to other people”

A Bible Myth: I Can Spiritualize any Verse I Want or Don’t Understand.

There is not one single verse in the scripture that needs to be spiritualized. There are two kinds of scriptures. One that is direct and means what it says and say what it means. This is most of the Bible. Then there are verses that are imagery and stand for something else.

Revelation 13:1 is a good example of a verse that is imagery.

“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.”

I have never seen and am pretty sure that there are no beasts on the earth with seven heads. The meaning was intended to be hidden or not understood until God wants it known for sure. Many have all kinds of ideas about it. Some may be correct, but they are maybe just good guesses.

Romans 9:4 “Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;”.

This verse is spiritualized all the time. It does not need to be spiritualized. It is correct as written. What it amounts to is people telling God he was wrong or maybe God changed His mind.

Malachi 3:6 “For I am Yahweh, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.”

The main reason people spiritualize verses is to try to make the scripture fit the world they see. This is not how one understands God. Make the world fit the scripture. Then you will understand what God wants you to know. It helps a lot to get the correct people in the correct roles.

It is the World that is upside down, not the Kingdom of God.

A Bible Myth: Gentile always means non-Israelite.

The English translations are very confusing concerning who is Israel in the new testament. The English translators chose to protect existing church doctrine over telling us what God actually said and intended for us to know. In the Hebrew and Greek there is unity of faith and doctrine.

If you went to some preaching schools you may have heard the phrase “Context is King. I would add to that Context and the Greek and Hebrew texts are King. Always let the context determine the meaning of a verse. Most false doctrines come from ignoring the context. Many of the rest come from ignoring the Greek and Hebrew word meanings. Here are three instance where the English translation use of Gentile is incorrect.

Romans 2:14-15 “For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)”.

The key here is “the law written in their hearts”. Scripture says that the only people that have the Law written in the hearts are the physical descendants of Jacob Israel, The House of Judah and the House of Israel. Jeremiah 31:31-33 and Hebrews 8:8-10. There are no exceptions.

Romans 9:24-26 “Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Judeans only, but also of the Gentiles? As he saith also in Hosea, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.”

Children of the living God or Christians. The key here is to follow Paul’s direction and become familiar with at least the first and better the first two chapters of Hosea. That is the prophecy of the House of Israel being divorced by God before being sent into a temporary captivity. The House of Israel did not go out of existence. To do so would make God a promise breaker. If you doubt that read Hosea 1:10-11.

“Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God. Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.”

The fulfillment of this prophecy is found in Ephesians 2.

Ephesians 2:11-17 “Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens [alienated] from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.”

There are several keys and clues here. Remember every time you see the word Gentiles, the scripture actually says Nation. You are expected to understand from the context the who.

In verse twelve in the KJV the word aliens is a verb. It is actually alienated. One must have been a part of what ever one was alienated from. When God divorced the House of Israel, they became alienated. No other people were ever a part of the Nation of Israel. They lost the right to be called Israel which means “ruling with God”. This was a temporary alienation as God promised to remarry the House of Israel. Read Romans 7:1-4 and understand. Other clues include “middle wall of partition”, near or nigh and afar off.

Another is the use of the word reconcile in verse sixteen. One can not reconcile two parties who have never at one time been together. Only the House of Israel and the House of Judah were in this situation in scripture with a promise that with Christ they would be reunited or reconciled under one head, Christ.

Most preachers and teachers promote a fantasy about a people who for 2000 years have hated Christ and people who heard and still hear Christ’s voice and follow Him.

What makes more sense?

People who say they are Jews, but spit when they hear the name of Jesus Christ.

or

People who, if they have had any religion at all for the past almost 2000 years, have been Christians and have fulfilled every prophecy intended for Israel.

Hebrews 11:18 “Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called”. (Isaac’s Sons or Saxons)

Numbers 6:27 “And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them.” (Christians)

(The modern day Jews are not, and have never been, God’s Israel people as proven by the bible, history and even Jewish writings.)

Every Word – Wild and Good Olives

A lot has been written and even movies made showing the importance of every word and that there can be hidden meaning in every word in the Bible. At the same time many things that are not hidden are not understood or ignored. Many have been taught to ignore the Bible’s own definition for terms.

In Romans 11:16-27, Paul talks about Wild and Good Olive Trees and grafting of branches from one to the other. Major doctrines have been created with the incorrect use of these words trying to substitute other people for Israel. This is partly the fault of the translators for putting a Latin word, Gentiles, in an English translation, thus hiding the true meaning of scripture to protect their position and possibly lives from the church of England. The Hebrew and Greek words translated Gentile mean only Nation. The context of the passage determines the who of the word nation. Many times it is the divorced House of Israel.

Romans 11:25-27 “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 fulness of the Nations be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.”

There were two houses of Israel, the House of Judah who had the election. The House of Israel who had lost the right to be called Israel and were then called Nations (Gentiles) in the scripture. There is no other covenant, but the one made with the two houses. The Wild Olive tree is the House of Israel. The Good Olive tree is the House of Judah. Pauls conclusion was not that all Israel and non-Israel would be saved. Paul said,

“And so all Israel shall be saved”.

The modern day Jews are not God’s Israel people.

Every Word – The Giving of the Law

A lot has been written and even movies made showing the importance of every word and that there can be hidden meaning in every word in the Bible. At the same time many things that are not hidden are not understood or ignored. Many have been taught to ignore the Bible’s own definition for terms.

Romans 9:4 “Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises”.

Paul says that only Israel was given God’s Law.

Psalms 147:19-20 “He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel. He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye Yahh.”

The Law was given to Israel three times. The first was at Sinai. Exodus 19:5-8. The second giving of the Law is the book of Deuteronomy. The name of the book means “Second giving of the Law”. The third giving of the Law of God is what is called, the New Covenant.

Jeremiah 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith Yahweh, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.”

This is repeated twice in the book of Hebrews. 8:8-10 and 10:16. I have had a few tell me that the Law was only given to the “Jews” and we are under grace. The Law and the new covenant of God was in fact only given to Israel. Grace can not exist without Law. Think about it.

Philippians 2:12 “Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”

The modern day Jews are not God’s Israel.
