Make No Covenant with Them

Yahweh God made Laws that were designed to protect His people.

Exodus 23:32 “Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee.”

We violate this every day. We have not only made agreements with strangers who believe in false gods, but we help them as well.

“Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate Yahweh? therefore is wrath upon thee from before Yahweh.”, 2 Chronicles 19:2b

2 John 1:7, 9-11 “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

Does this sound like the “we must love everyone” nonsense we were all taught at church?

Reading a Couple Books

I started reading one book, but in the introduction another book was recommended. That led to a third book. So now I am reading two books with the third waiting. One by James Jester had a quote from a Professor C.A.L. Totten (1851-1908), of Yale University.

“I can never be too thankful to the Almighty that in my youth he used the late Professor Wilson to show me the difference between the two houses. The very understanding of this difference is the KEY by which almost the entire Bible becomes intelligible, and I cannot state too strongly that the man who has not yet seen that Israel of the Scripture is totally distinct from the Jewish people, is yet in the very infancy, the mere alphabet, of Biblical study, and that to this day the meaning of seven-eighths of the Bible is shut to his understanding.”

The understanding of the two Houses of Israel is very important. Ephesians chapter two is all about the reunification under Christ of those two Houses. Many men over the centuries, including Thomas Paine, gave up on the Bible because of one misunderstanding. The Jewish people in the world today are not in any way the children of Israel. The error of who is Israel has destroyed the faith of many.

Here are a couple more interesting quotes I’ve come across in reading another book by James Jester.

In 1760, Ezra Stiles, president of Yale said “God is now giving this land [America] to us who by virtue of the ancient covenant are the Seed of Abraham.” He also said, “The Lord shall have made his American Israel high above all nations which He hath made.”

In 1775, Samuel Langdon, president of Harvard, contended that America should adopt the same form of government that God gave to Moses, because the “Israel government was a perfect republic.”

How far have we fallen by believing those who hate Christ. The Scripture is true. Believe the Scripture. Question the world.

A New Covenant, Same Religion

In the beginning there was God and His Moral Law. God chose Israel and put His skirt over her in the desert, Ezekiel 16. This was the Hebrew religion.

Upon the return from Babylon the Edomites corrupted that religion creating Judaism or Phariseeism. When God sent His Son to redeem Israel, Christ had to restore the Hebrew religion. Now it is called Christianity.

It is the same religion with the same God and the same people. The only differences are that Christ is our high priest and sacrifice and that we now have God’s Law written on our hearts.

The Edomites, today found among the Jews, are still trying to destroy the Faith only now they call it Judeo-Christianity.

God’s Kingdom Law

A Kingdom has a King, Land, Law and People. Christ is our King. Matthew 13 teaches us that the kingdom of God is here now on the earth and evil men try to take it by force and prevent others from entering into the kingdom. God’s Law is in effect. The Law includes the commandments, statutes and judgments. God’s people is Israel. They are the same people today, but with different names such as Anglo-Saxon (Isaac’s Sons), Germanic, Celtic, Scandinavian and kindred peoples. Most have the additional moniker Caucasians.

Those who abuse Matthew 5:17 and teach that the Law of God is done away never talk much about verse 19. These are Christ’s own words.

Matthew 5:19 “Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”

Be careful reading Paul. Paul was not double minded. Paul fully supported God’s Law.

Romans 7:12 “Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.”

God’s forever moral Law is in effect. Without this Law there is no grace, new covenant nor Savior.

Why a No-Marry List

God had a no-marry list for Israel. Three of the groups were the children of Moab, Ammon and Canaan. These were all children of Incest. There were others that God told Israel not to marry, but these were the most written about children of incest.

Judah had sinned by marrying a Canaanite woman. God killed his first two sons by the Canaanite woman. God intervened however in that Tamar took her right to children and had Pharez and Zarah by Judah thus preserving the holy seed from Judah.

Another instance is in Ezra chapter nine. The people who had returned to Judea from Babylon were intermarrying with the children of the land.

Ezra 9:12 “Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children for ever.”

Many say that this rejection of the local people was due to their foreign gods. Interestingly there never was any attempt anywhere in the scripture to convert those people. If it had been about religion they could have just divorced the other people. The rejection by God was based on who they were, not what they believed. An interesting part of the above verse is that Israel should never seek their peace or wealth for ever. Why? Once again it was for the same reason that God had Israel kill off entire populations of people in their past.

“that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children for ever.”

It was for the protection of Israel as a people. It is the same reason we are not supposed to bring in foreigners into our land and communities today.

2 Corinthians 6:17a “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate (to set off by boundary), saith the Lord”.

Philippians 2:15 “That ye may be blameless and unmixed, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse race, among whom ye shine as lights in the world”.

A Good Example

In talking about the Law, Statutes and Judgements, Moses said,

Deuteronomy 4:6-8 “Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people. For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as Yahweh our God is in all things that we call upon him for? And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?”

This Law was given only to Israel. Is the wording exclusive? In other words, Are other nations prohibited from obeying this Law? The same goes for missions.

The gospel is to be preached, but that is all. We are not to incentivize or force belief in or the keeping of the gospel. How can we tell others to keep what we aren’t keeping ourselves? Our best method after just telling others is to obey it ourselves. Other nations used to look to our nation as mentioned in Deuteronomy above as a source of righteousness. Now all the other nations are interested in is what they can get for free from us. We have taught greed.

The Gospel has been preached far and wide. Bring the missionaries home and let us get our house in order.

God Wrote What He Meant

It has become common in the larger denominations to approve of sodomy today. It is really rather easy for one to come up with the same ideas. It starts very simply. One Sunday your preacher stands up and reads

James 1:1 “James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.”

Today it is incorrectly taught that the 10 tribes didn’t exist at the time of James. So your preacher will say the 12 tribes means the church. What your preacher is saying is that James didn’t know what he was talking about or wasn’t inspired correctly. James used the word translated as church in chapter five. He knew the word. Since the preacher spiritualized James 1:1 then he will also have to do the same with James 2:21 which says

“Was not Abraham our father…”

It doesn’t stop there. Your preacher will be spiritualizing many verses all through the new testament because they don’t make sense with the current teaching in most churches. Next thing you know your preacher will be telling you that Romans 1:27 doesn’t mean what it says and you’ll be right there agreeing with the heresy of many today.

The writers of the New Testament wrote what they meant and meant what they wrote. Spiritualizing what they wrote destroys the meaning they intended. Believe the Word, question the world.

Lucifer is not Satan

Based on the Hebrew word meaning.

Isaiah 14:12 “How art thou fallen from heaven, O shining one, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!”

The Hebrew word translated lucifer was translated from a word that described the king of Babylon. This verse is found in the middle of a discourse on the king of Babylon. “The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see.”, Isaiah 13:1. Nebuchadnezzar was the one who fell when he was driven from men. Read verses 11 and 13 of chapter 14 for helpful context.

Context is very important in understanding scripture.

Sodomy

Here are the scripture passages having to do with what we today call homosexual behavior.

Leviticus 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

Leviticus 20:13 “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”

Romans 1:26-27 “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”

Deuteronomy 22:5 “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto Yahweh thy God.”

1 Corinthians 16:13 “Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.”

In plain English Leviticus 18 and 20 say that a man must not have intercourse with a man. In the Greek in Romans 1:26 scripture indicates that a man must not have anal intercourse with a woman. Then verse 27 says likewise a man must not perform the same act with a man. The act of anal intercourse is sodomy. God does not make arbitrary law. Every Law of God has a purpose. This is a Health Law as it is meant to protect one from disease. I do believe this also includes the medical procedure Fecal Transplant. This should be examined in the light of God’s Law. I think that it is also forbidden for the same reason as anal intercourse since the results can be the same.

In 1 Corinthians 16:13 the Greek for “quit you like men” actually says, “act manly”. There are several scriptures that express the idea that men should behave as men. When you combine that with Deuteronomy 22:5 the idea is that men should not dress as or behave as women. Since there is no set rule this is one of the few rules that can actually change based on the practice of the day. The point is still that men and women dress as is appropriate for their sex.

God is in Control

That God that you have been taught punishes and is mean and vengeful didn’t start the universe and back off to let things go as they might. He also is the God who saves us.

Psalms 115:3 “But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.”

Ephesians 1:11 “In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will”.

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

John 10:30 “I and my Father are one.”

John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

If you throw away part of the Word of God, such as the Law, then you don’t believe Christ.

John 5:46-47 “For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?”
