LIKE ALL THE NATIONS

The Old and the New Testaments tell exactly the same story. There is as much Christianity in the Old Testament as in the New. People whose religion is too shallow to make any study of it, have always overlooked this fact, both 2,000 years ago and again today. There is still the same firm insistence upon the national message in the New Testament as the Old, however shallow religion fails to see it.
When Yahshua first came, Israel was not willing to receive Him as Savior and Redeemer, because they would not accept the whole message, only the national half of it. The Pharisees of today’s churches are just as wrong, they reject just as contemptuously the national message and this error will be just as disastrous as the other.
When Yahshua returns, He will not be coming as the Savior of the individual, for that work He has already completed. As He said upon the cross, “it is finished”. He is coming as a king of a very real kingdom upon this earth. It will not do to reject Him and His crown and only meet Him with a cross.
In the past, Israel had rejected Yahweh as their king, I Samuel 12:12 starts the story. “Yahweh your God was your king.” They were not like the other nations, as they mostly remembered the word of Yahweh. In Deuteronomy 14:2 Yahweh tells Israel, “Thou art an holy people unto Yahweh thy God, and Yahweh hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto Himself, above all the nations upon the earth.”
While Israel remembered to keep themselves separate from and different from all the other races and nations, they had peace and prosperity. They were as Yahweh said in Exodus 19:5 & Psalm 135:4, “A peculiar treasure unto Him above all other people.”
When Samuel grew old, and could no longer vigorously enforce Yahweh’s laws, instead of the people turning to Yahweh for the full restoration of the laws of His kingdom, they said to Samuel which is recorded in I Samuel 8:1-20. “Make us a king that we may be like all the nations.”
Yahweh said in I Samuel 8:7, “They have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.” This was the beginning of disaster. Yahweh warned the people of the evil ways of a human king, who would indeed rule them like all the nations. They would not heed this warning. As Yahweh warned them, high taxes, bureaucracy and unreasonable tyranny were their fate, like all the nations.
Today, most of the churches are the loudest in shouting the satanic and communist doctrine that we also should be like all the nations. Open idolatry would not be a more direct repudiation of Yahweh. Yahweh’s commandments are the same in the New Testament as in the Old. In Leviticus 20:24, 26 it is recorded, “I am Yahweh your God which has separated you from other people. And ye shall be holy unto Me: for I Yahweh am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be Mine.”
In II Corinthians 6:14-18, the command is still the same. “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of Yahweh with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God; as Yahweh hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Wherefore come out from among them and be ye separate: saith Yahweh, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters saith Yahweh the Almighty.”
When we make ourselves like all the nations, we are both rejecting and defying Yahweh. The worst of all possible forms of this is to put ourselves under the rule of these pagan nations through the United Nations. To work with them at all, except on our terms, is bad. To work under them, for purposes determined by their majority vote, is always evil. It is despising and rejecting the very purpose for which Yahweh sent us down here.
The churches should be the first to warn us against this. They should teach the gospel of our national law, our national organization into Yahweh’s kingdom, and our national destiny. Failure to do this will not be pardoned, the warning is plain and always the same. In Jeremiah 50:6 Yahweh complains about the actions of Israel. “My people have been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray. They have turned them away on the mountains; they have gone from mountain to hill; they have forgotten their resting place.”
Yahweh continues in Jeremiah 6:13-15, “Behold, the word of Yahweh is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it. From the prophet even unto the priest, every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of My people but slightly, saying, Peace, peace, when there is no peace. Were they ashamed when they committed abominations? Nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush. Therefore, they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith Yahweh.” Old Testament? Yes, but now read Matthew 7:22-23, “Many will say to me in that day, Master, master, have we not prophesied in Thy name? And in Thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.”
Our racial and national heritage is both a birthright and a duty. It is our duty to be strong and resolute, for Yahweh has told us, “Thou art My battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms.” Had we been true to Yahweh’s commandments, we would have broken the power of Red Russia while she was weak. We would not have caused China to go communist. The whole world would now be living in peace and freedom.
However, we allowed treacherous politicians and clergymen to talk liberalism and pacifism to us, when our duty could have then been performed easily and safely. Today we still face the same duty, but now what is the cost? Has the clergy’s preaching been good? By their fruits ye shall know them.
It is our duty to possess and govern the heathen, teaching them Yahweh’s laws. In Psalm 105:43-44 we read, “And He brought forth His people with joy, and His chosen with gladness: and gave them the lands of the heathen.” In Psalm 18:43 we read, “Thou hast made Me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve Me.”
Our clergymen have denounced this as colonialism. They also say that we must lower ourselves to equality with the cannibals, since we can’t raise them to our level. As a result, what has happened in Cuba, China, and the Congo? Is this to the glory of Yahweh? Where is the influence of the missionaries, now that the witch doctors reign supreme? Isn’t it time that we send missionaries to the churches, to bring them back to the word of Yahweh?
The white man gave Africa the only civilization it ever knew. When white people’s intervention kept the war lords from gaining power, China had peace. We brought Cuba, the Philippines, Puerto Rico and Panama the only sanitation, hospitals and the only education they ever had. We are now being told this was evil colonialism and we must now submit to being ruled by them. The liberals want us to be governed by the standards of Cuba and the Congo, because we should be like all the other nations and they have the majority votes.
For the last 3,300 years, every time we have tried to become like the other nations, it has reduced us to their level. This includes all the evils, poverty, misrule and corruption that has plagued them. “There is no peace, saith Yahweh, unto the wicked.”
We shall have no peace until we obey Yahweh’s command, “Come out from among them, and be ye separate, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and My daughters, saith Yahweh the Almighty.”
Critical note by Clifton A. Emahiser: Again, a good job by Comparet, and although he did well, I can’t give him a perfect score. His main comments with which I disagree are where he remarked: “We would not have caused China to go communist. The whole world would now be living in peace and freedom. ... It is our duty to possess and govern the heathen, teaching them Yahweh’s laws. In Psalm 105:43-44 we read, ‘And He brought forth His people with joy, and His chosen with gladness: and gave them the lands of the heathen.’ In Psalm 18:43 we read, ‘Thou hast made Me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve Me. ... Isn’t it time that we send missionaries to the churches, to bring them back to the word of Yahweh?”
Psalms 105:43-44 & 18:43 are not in the context which Comparet assumes. Psalm 105:43-44 is rather speaking of the Israelites acquiring the land of Canaan along with its buildings. “43 And he [Yahweh] brought forth his people with joy [out of Egypt], and his chosen [Israelites] with gladness: 44 And gave them the lands of the heathen [Canaanites]: and they inherited the labour [in structures built] of the [Canaanite] people.” Not only were the Israelites to dispossess the Canaanites of land and property, but the Almighty commanded Israel to slay every Canaanite man, woman and infant that breathed, of whom today’s bad-fig-jews are akin.
Psalm 18:43 is an entirely different subject, and Comparet should never have quoted it with Psalm 105:43-44 in the same paragraph as he did. Doing so, he only left an incorrect impression. Psalm 18:43 addresses David’s future kingship over the Israel tribes while Psalm 105:43-44 addresses Israel’s exodus from Egypt. I will now amplify Psalm 18:43 for a better understanding: “Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the [Israel] people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen [goy = Israel nations] a people whom I have not known [in the future] shall serve [my house of David descendants].” And it is completely irrelevant whether China is a friend or not, for Israel was instructed by Yahweh to have ZERO dealings with alien enosh.
