Gathering the Nations

Among the forces which guide international policies and rule the nations of the world, significant changes have occurred within the lifetime of this generation. Changes too vast and significant to escape the notice of Yahweh. Among the most evident of these is the strong movement to bind all the nations into one organization, the United Nations, so one group of men may be the undisputed masters of all the world. They would rule with irresistible force in their own interest, crushing any who might oppose them. What would we find if we were able to uncover those who are the real masters over many politicians and rule them out of the shadows?

We have seen the United Nations in action for many years. We have seen it utterly impotent for good but powerful enough for evil. We see the constant efforts, even on the part of some Americans, to extend this power over us, so that we may become a helpless pawn in the power of the nations which envy and hate us. May Yahweh pity and save this nation, if the one worlders have their way!

Has Yahweh overlooked this remarkable phenomenon? No indeed, nothing important escapes His foreknowledge. The Bible contains many prophecies which deal with this organization and none of them are favorable to it. I know that this fact will arouse the bitter hatred of many people who consider themselves well meaning. They think they and their kind can become the masters of the world through this organization, then they would compel everyone to obey them. They consider themselves so wise and good they feel sure that this will be for the best interests of the world. They talk glibly of peace and of the nations beating their swords into plowshares. They forget that Yahweh has told us this can only be accomplished under the personal and direct rule of Yahshua. It will not and cannot be under the rule of Nehru, Nassar, Kruschev or Sukaro, with all nations compelled to serve the Afro-Asian bloc’s hatred of white civilization.

Why does Yahweh permit the nations to gather together into this huge atheistic organization, in which the name of Yahshua cannot be mentioned? Their only concession to any God is the big stone idol of the pagan god Zeus, standing in the lobby. Let’s see what the Bible says about it. We are now entering a period of judgment, in which the worldwide evil of these days must bring on its consequences. We find the explanation starting in Zephaniah 3:8for My determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdom, to pour out upon them My indignation: even all My fierce anger. For all the earth shall be devoured in the fire of My zeal.” saying, “Therefore, wait upon Me, saith Yahweh, until the day that I rise up to the prey:

This gathering of the nations is not for any good, as recent years have consistently proven. Their policies are directed by those who plan world communism. In more recent years, their desire to destroy white civilization, on the pretext of currying favor with the Afro-Asian bloc, can no longer be concealed. Yahweh’s mercy has allowed the nations many years for repentance, but to no avail. Their evil policies have led the world into the trap which now faces all nations. Truly as Hosea 10:13 says, “Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies.”

This confederacy of nations, called the United Nations (when they are not united in anything but a desire to steal from the American taxpayer) was doomed before it started. Yahweh foresaw the evil motives of the politicians who organized it and those who have governed it ever since. In Isaiah 8:9-14 Yahweh proclaimed its failure. “Associate yourselves, O ye people, and ye shall be broken in pieces; and give ear, all ye of far countries: gird yourselves, and ye shall be broken in pieces; Take counsel together and it shall come to naught; Speak the word and it shall not stand. For Yahweh spake thus to me, with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people saying, Say ye not a confederacy to all them to whom this people say a confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid. Sanctify Yahweh Himself and let Him be your dread and He shall be for a sanctuary ...”

The paths of truth and justice are plain, Yahweh’s word is clear and emphatic. Honesty and loyalty won’t buy the votes of the minority groups which are hostile to our nation, our race, our religion and our way of life. The politicians and diplomats talk of the complexity of the problems confronting them. It is only the difficulty of getting the support of rapacious groups with conflicting purposes, doing some evil to gain the support of this one, more evil to gain the support of another.

Solving their tricky problems is necessary as the prophet in Micah 7:3 says, “That they may do evil with both hands earnestly.” Let them adopt a new policy. Put the interests of our nation first, which has entrusted them with power. Be loyal to Yahweh who gave us the greatness which all the world envies. Follow His clear commandments and their difficulties and troubles will vanish. Then our nation will recover the honor and respect it once had.

Continuance of the present policy of subordinating all national interests to the United Nations, or worse yet, to those nations in it which have the least civilization and the lowest standards, is national suicide. This policy leads us inevitably to wars in many parts of the earth which today we see in the making. It is for the purposes which produce these wars that the nations have gathered together in the United Nations. Therefore Isaiah 13:4, 11 says, “The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: Yahweh mustereth the host for battle. And I will punish the world for their evil and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.” Jeremiah 25:32-33 adds to the picture. “Thus saith Yahweh: Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth. And those slain by Yahweh shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth.”

Candidly review the events of the last few years. What has come out of the United Nations except that evil shall go forth from nation to nation? They have abandoned half of Europe to slavery under Asiatic communism. Even our own nation was guilty of treacherous encouragement to the people of Hungary and Cuba to revolt against their Red masters. It was encouragement enough to get them to come out in the open and identify themselves for the eyes of the Reds. Then we withdrew the support we had led them to expect and left them to be massacred.

We used every pressure except invasion, to overthrow the Trujillo regime in the Dominican Republic. Not because Trujillo was a dictator, for our government just loves dictators when they are Red. Our politicians poured two billion dollars of aid into the hands of Tito of Yugoslavia and two thirds of a billion into Red Poland. Then our government wants to get on friendly terms with Kruschev if he will only allow us to do so.

Our government overthrew Trujillo’s regime because he was anti-communist and yet we do nothing that will really hurt Castro’s Red Cuba while they are building rocket pads and jet bomber airfields for use against us. We spent more money, year for year, on the Korean fiasco than we did on World War II. We lost thousands of American lives, to accomplish what? It was only to demonstrate that we can’t win a war under the United Nations. We always support the enemies of our very few allies. We did our utmost to weaken the only nations from whom there is the slightest possibility of friendship or help when needed. The United Nations is trying to drive Portugal out of Angola, territory they settled before any of the American colonies were founded. If the Portuguese claim to Angola is not good, then on the same principle, we must give back all our southwestern states to Mexico and the rest of the country to the Indians, then we should get out. Could you imagine a more completely satanic scheme than the United Nation’s policies and achievements?

Proverbs 1:29-31 describes it. “They hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of Yahweh: They would none My counsel: they despised all My reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way and be filled with their own devices.”


Critical note by Clifton A. Emahiser: Comparet is right on the money with this presentation! The only problem is, things have escalated far beyond what he stated shortly before the time his death in 1983.
