An unfortunate characteristic of all major churches is, with great energy and the best intentions, they always oppose Yahweh’s plans for the time in which they live. These churches fall into this error because they take a few verses of scriptures out-of-context and elevate this into doctrine. Then they cannot retreat from this position without losing face, by having to admit they made a mistake. This was true at the first coming of our Redeemer Yahshua, and it is equally true now that His second coming is near.
The Bible contains all of Yahweh’s message to His people Israel. Both the gospel of the kingdom and the hopeful promise of redemption. You cannot truthfully claim to know your religion, nor to be an obedient child of Yahweh if you know and follow only one of these two halves of His message. You cannot have either one in its reality without the other, each is just one part of Yahweh’s perfect plan and neither will work effectively without the other. Before Yahshua’s first coming, the people tried to take only the national part and it brought them ruin. Since then, we have accepted only the personal part and it has now brought us face to face with the most total catastrophe which has threatened the world since the first chapter of Genesis. Only Yahweh’s own plan, the balanced combination of both national and personal messages, can give us life.
Today the churches teach nothing but the half dealing with personal salvation, by faith in Yahshua as our Redeemer. I do not belittle it, for without this you have nothing. But with it, what do you have? That is what the rest of Yahweh’s message deals with. Only 1/6th of the Bible is addressed to the individual, the other 5/6ths is addressed to the nation and race. If Yahweh found it important enough to devote 5/6ths of His message to us in this gospel of the kingdom, we should find it important enough to learn what it is.
Our Christian religion begins with Yahweh’s promises to Abraham, Isaac and Israel, all the rest is the detailed development and fulfillment of these promises. The promises were racial and national. Here they are as recorded in Genesis 12:2-3, 13:15-16. “I will make of thee a great nation and I will bless thee and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing; and in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed. All the land which thou seeth, to thee will I give, and to thy seed forever ... And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed be numbered.” Genesis 15:5, 18 continues, “Look now toward heaven and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and He said unto him, so shall thy seed be. Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates.” Genesis 17:4-7 says, “My covenant is with thee and thou shalt be a father of many nations. I establish My covenant between Me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee and to thy seed after thee.” Genesis 18:18 adds, “Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him.” Genesis 35:11 continues, “Unto thy seed I will give all these countries. A nation and a company of nations shall be of thee.” Note that all of these were racial and national promises.
Certainly Yahweh’s further promises made at Mount Sinai were to the nation. Yahweh’s laws were stated, with the promise that the individual who obeyed them would be blessed, while he who held them in contempt would be cursed in punishment. It was also made the responsibility of the nation to see that Yahweh’s will was obeyed by the individuals. For failure to do this, the nation would be punished. For general obedience to Yahweh, the nation would receive the blessings of peace, great prosperity, etc..
The national and racial character of these promises are often emphasized. Deuteronomy 7:6 promises, “Thou art a holy people unto Yahweh: Yahweh thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto Himself, above all the people that are on the face of the earth.” Exodus 19:6 states, “Ye shall be unto Me a kingdom of priests and an holy nation.” Numbers 6:27 reads, “They shall put My name upon the children of Israel and I shall bless them.”
Many people mistakenly think that the New Testament deals only with the individual, that its message is only that of personal salvation. Nothing could be further from the truth, Yahweh’s word is still good. For example Yahshua said in Matthew 15:24, “I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” Yahshua taught only in parables and almost all of these concerned the kingdom of Yahweh. Most of them began, “The kingdom of Yahweh is like unto.” Not one of them says, the salvation is like unto, something. Yahshua knew He came to found the Christian religion. He was careful not to teach that it abolished Yahweh’s promises to His people. To the chief priest and elders, the religious leaders of the church of that day He said, “The kingdom of Yahweh shall be taken from you and given to a nation”, not to a church or a denomination.
When Yahshua promised His 12 apostles their rewards, what did He say in Matthew 19:28?“Ye which have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of His glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones judging”, what? Will they be judging the Methodists, Baptists and the Presbyterians? Of course not, the twelve disciples will be judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
Who is it He will judge and who will He reward? Not just individuals only, but also nations. In Matthew 25:31-41nations; and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats. And He shall set the sheep on his right hand but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come ye blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world! Then shall He say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from Me ye cursed, into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels.” Even today the Christ hating Jewish liberals are always on the left. Yahshua says, “When the Son of man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory: And before Him shall be gathered all
What gospel did Yahshua preach? Matthew 9:35 tells us, “And Yahshua went about all the cities and villages, teaching in the synagogues and preaching the gospel of the kingdom.” Every time He sent out His disciples to preach, He commanded them to preach the gospel of the kingdom of Yahweh. In Matthew 24:14 He says, “This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all the nations; and then shall the end come.”
I know there are many who have been taught that Paul set aside all of Yahshua’s teachings and brought a new and different gospel, this is not true. If you want to know what Paul preached, read the last verse of the Book of Acts. It says, “Preaching the kingdom of Yahweh and teaching those things which concern Yahshua.” In Romans 15:8 Paul tells us, “Now I say that Yahshua was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of Yahweh, to confirm the promises made to the fathers.” These, as we have seen, were national and racial promises. By the obedience of the individuals, the nation was blessed. By the blessing of the nation the individual not only prospered materially, but his children grew up in an environment which taught them also to be obedient to Yahweh, so Yahweh’s blessings would go on from generation to generation.
When will we learn we cannot repudiate, as worthless, any part of Yahweh’s great plan for us and yet get the blessings out of the rest of it? The churches of today are directly, and almost exclusively, to blame for the peril of utter destruction which faces Christian civilization today. Within the memory of most of those that hear me, the white Christian nations of the world were in power, fully capable of ruling the world with Yahweh’s rules for the nations.
Yet the clergy are teaching that these rules had to be abolished. They teach that church members must not be contaminated taking part in politics, but leave that exclusively in the hands of evil men. They taught we must set free the pagan, Christ hating nations, before we had been able to lift them out of their savagery. Their befuddled dupes have believed and done these things and you see the results throughout the world today.
Let’s get back to the whole Bible, Yahweh’s entire plan, while it is still possible!
Critical note by Clifton A. Emahiser: There is a rancher-Bible-teacher on television who claims that Genesis 13:16, “And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed be numbered” means a promise to the “Jews”. This rancher-Bible-teacher divides the entire earth’s population into two categories: “Jews and Gentiles.” And his faulty definition of the Latin term “Gentile” is a “non-Jew.” No intelligent Latin student or college professor would give such a flawed definition! The Latin term “Gentile” (gentilis) simply means, “same family, same race”! Then this rancher-Bible-teacher quotes Genesis 15:5 which reads, “... Look now toward heaven and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and He said unto him, so shall thy seed be.” This same rancher-Bible-teacher then makes the claim that the promise of the “stars” to Abram is for the “Gentile church”. That the “dust” is a promise for the so-called “Jews” and the “stars” is a promise for the “Gentile church”! Is this, or is this not, “wrest”[ing] the Scriptures, 2 Peter 3:16?
