The Protestant Churches today, have traditions in the same way as the Pharisees did and Roman Catholics do. These traditions make the Word of God of no effect in that they block understanding of election and the identity of the elect.
If asked to show someone all the verses you know that say when a Christian dies, he goes to heaven, how many verses could you give? There are none! Can you point to one prophecy that forecasts this? If I was to ask which of the heavens out of seven you are talking about, which one would it be? For instance, in 2 Cor 12:2 Paul says he was, “caught up to the third heaven”. Yet most churchgoers have this tradition about “going to heaven” with no idea what they are talking about.
There is a whole parallel system of religion complete with language, experiences, beliefs and lying wonders that refuses to accept many things in the Bible.
This system claims ”Adam” of Genesis two was the first hominid whereas the Bible places the Garden of God as coexisting with the Assyrian empire in Ezek. 31.
If pointed out that Jehovah is called Satan in Scripture, the churches might well have kittens because of their concept of what that word means. [God became an adversary to Israel]. The word satan means adversary and isn’t always speaking of the Devil.
Churches teach that Paul had revelations about the Church that were not revealed to the prophets of the O/T, whereas Paul says he spoke about nothing but what “are written in the law and in the prophets”. [To King Agrippa].
Perhaps their major deception is saying that “The Jews” means Israelites, whereas the parties in fact are the House of Israel and the House of Judah, and not “Jews and Gentiles”. It can be demonstrated easily the word “Gentiles” refers to Israelites, if we have time.
To assist their deception, churches use dynamic equivalents, such as the NIV which is not a translation. They even call a paraphrase a translation.
It is these traditional beliefs that have preconditioned most churchgoers against any form of “chosen people” as found through Scripture. So churches in effect ditch the O/T with some saying in a derogatory way, “That’s Old Testament – but we are New Testament Christians“.
If asked you what the difference is between “redemption” and “salvation“, and to whom each could apply to, how many of you could give a rational Biblical answer? It must be admitted that all should be able to give a straight answer and have an understanding of such commonly used words.
Now, it is not hard to easily find simple Bible statements that are indisputable. Only when we have such certainties we can build on a rock-solid foundation.
Only when we are familiar with what is “indisputable” are we able to answer questions and to refute arguments. We are not talking about just historical identity facts; we have to be able to handle doctrinal issues as well.
When confronted by religious people, Jesus had a way of asking questions, and turning the matter back on those confronting him, simply by asking a question. For instance, he would say, “Have ye not read what is written”? There are a host of Scriptures that can be used to throw back questions and do it in the same style as Jesus used.
For instance we can say, “have you not read what Isaiah said, ‘for the transgression of “my people” was He stricken’, or of Jesus when he said, ‘I was not sent but to the lost sheep of the House of Israel’. If they say, “Well that was then, but now everything has changed”, then ask, “Well, when did it change?” It will soon be found they have no real answer.
There are many Scriptures that are completely limiting and cannot be generalised to include anyone at all outside of Israel.
As most people will accept a measure of exclusiveness in the Old Testament, we will first look at the New Testament for some of indisputable verses.
Try highlighting in say orange colour the words which declared exclusiveness. For instance, in Matthew 1:21 we read, “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name Jesus, for he shall save His people from their sins.”, “His people” being an exclusive statement. It was not long before you will have an orange- tinged Bible. This verse also brings out one vital fact that churches ignore, namely, that Israel were “His people” before they were saved. The churches say people “get saved” and then become His people, but this is one of the invalid traditions of the Protestant churches.
So first let us look through a few New Testament verses to see some more examples of what we could highlight in the same way. Look at the emphasised words below.
Luke 1:16 “And many of the Children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. Highlight “Children of Israel”
Luke 1: 55 “He has helped His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy, as he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to His seed forever”. [If “forever”, this could never change later].
Luke 1:68-9 “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel for He hath visited and redeemed His people. And has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the House of His servant David….as He spake by the mouth of His holy prophets……..to perform the mercy promised to our fathers.
[No other prophecy, is there?]
Luke 1:77 “To give knowledge of salvation unto His people by the remission of their sins”.
Luke 2: 34 “Behold, this Child is set for the rising again of many in Israel.
John 1:31 “But that He should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptising in water”.
Acts 5:30 “The God of our fathers raised up Jesus…….to be a Prince and a Saviour…….to give repentance to Israel”.
This is a pretty blunt statement of whom Jesus is to be prince over. Jesus is called “The redeemer of Israel” and “The Saviour of Israel”. Where we find the phrase, “Saviour of all men”-[Titus 4:10], this refers to “all men” of the context. That is “all men of Israel”.
SOME OF THE INCONTROVERTIBLE THINGS WE CAN SAY WITH CERTAINTY THAT “WE KNOW”.
WE KNOW SOME CAN ‘HEAR’ AND SOME CANNOT “HEAR“.
John 8:43-43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
Jesus says in this section of Scripture that those begotten “from above” from conception can hear, and that those “from below” cannot hear His words. Jesus also says, ”Let him that hath ears, let him hear”. So not everyone has ears to hear. The Churches teach that the ability to hear depends upon belief, but as faith comes by hearing, how could those who do not have the inborn capacity to believe ever be converted and come to belief and faith?
WE KNOW THAT NOT ALL PEOPLE ARE ORDAINED TO ETERNAL LIFE.
Acts 13:48 And when the Gentiles – [Paul calls them, “Men of Israel”].- heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.
“Ordained” is in the passive voice and in the perfect tense, that is, it is viewed as having been completed in the past, once and for all, not needing to be repeated. Being passive means the individual does not do the choosing.
WE KNOW THAT THERE ARE THOSE TO WHOM KNOWLEDGE OF THE MYSTERIES OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS NOT GIVEN.
Matt 13:11 Jesus answered, “Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them it is not given”. In John 6:65, Jesus says, “No man commeth unto Me, except it be given unto him of My Father”. So we know that this does not include everyone. [The selection basis is genetic stock].
HOW CAN WE SAY WE KNOW THAT THE BASIS IS RACE?
Rom. 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
WHOM DID GOD FOREKNOW?
Amos 3:2 You ONLY have I known of ALL the families of the earth:
Here the mood is perfect….for all time. So the “foreknown” of the N/T are the “known” of the O/T.
WE KNOW THAT JESUS WAS NOT SENT TO ANYONE OTHER THAN ISRAEL.
John 17:9 Jesus prayed about “as many as Thou hast given Me” and then He prayed for those who would believe amongst those to whom the disciples were sent. The twelve were sent, “to the lost sheep of the House of Israel”-[Matt.10:6], the same ones to whom Jesus says that He was sent to, i.e.”I am not sent but to the lost sheep of the House of Israel”.-[Matt.15:24].
WE KNOW THAT THE NAMES ‘ISRAEL‘, ‘ABRAHAM‘, ‘ISAAC‘, ‘JACOB’ AND ‘THE FATHERS’ [OF ISRAEL] CONTINUE THROUGH THE NEW TESTAMENT.
So how possibly could all of these be interpreted as “The Church”? It is interesting to see how the Churches try to get around this. They just make statements and then claim these to be facts…like all politicians…or modern-day scribes.
WE KNOW THAT THE NEW COVENANT ONLY APPLIES TO ISRAELITES.
Heb. 8:8. “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah”
And from this we can see that the New Covenant could not apply to anyone who had not had the Old Covenant. That is, the New Covenant can only apply to Israelites.
WE KNOW THAT REDEMPTION CAN ONLY APPLY TO ISRAELITES.
None could be redeemed = ‘bought back’ who had not been in place once before.This is fulfilling Ezek. 31:31. If you are ever told to believe something that cannot be found prophetically in the O/T, watch out!
WE KNOW THAT SHEEP CANNOT CHANGE INTO GOATS BY BELIEF, AND TARES CANNOT TURN INTO WHEAT.
Matthew 13, Wheat is sown as seeds by God and Tares are sown as seeds by the ‘enemy’. According to God’s Law each reproduces “after his kind”. They grow together and are separated unchanged at the harvest time. Jude 19 and Rom. 8:15. A person cannot change his genetic origin. Yet Churches will, or will not to, believe about the “known” and the “foreknown”..
- WE KNOW THAT IF GOD HATED ANY PEOPLE, THEY COULD NOT BE PART OF THE WORLD GOD “SO LOVED“.
Rom. 9:13 “Jacob have I loved, Esau have I hated”.
So we know by statement and by tense that the Old Testament position is maintained in the New Testament
– [See Mal. 1:1-4 where God says he hates the descendants of Esau for all generations. Obadiah details their destiny as does Jesus in the parable of the vineyard.
WE KNOW OF WHOM ONLY GOD IS THE GOD OF.
Exodus 3:15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name [shem] for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.
We cannot find reference to God being the God of anyone else through the Bible. This applies for “all generations“.
WE KNOW THAT JER 23:27 APPLIES IN CHURCH PRACTICE – “as their fathers have forgotten my name for Ba’al”. [= “Lord” -so Lord this and Lord that” is what we hear.
“Ba’al” = the god of all races. Witness the prayer of Elijah on Mt. Carmel, and how Elijah named his God as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The prophets of Ba’al did not do this, neither do the churches.
Yes, there are references to the “God of all the earth” but the context is Israel, so it refers to all the earth of Israel.
WE KNOW THAT GOD PLACES HIS NAME ONLY ON ONE PEOPLE.
Deuteronomy 28:10 And ALL people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of YAHWEH; and they shall be afraid of thee.
Deuteronomy 26:19 And to make thee high above ALL nations which he hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto YAHWEH thy God, as he hath spoken.
Numbers 6:27 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them. This is an exclusive statement.
Note in the first two verses the word “ALL” which does not include Israel in the “all”. This is typical of the use of “all”, “every”, “whosoever” and “every” in both Hebrew and Greek where “all“ refers “all” of each context only.
We can see “all“ in: “You only have I known of all the families of the earth“:
WE KNOW THAT ELECTION IS NOT PRIMARILY A MATTER OF BEHAVIOUR, OR BELIEF. Romans 9:10-11. “When Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac; (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;)
This is about offspring being elected by God, before having done good or eviI -[ i.e. from conception].
32 WE KNOW THAT THE POTTER MAKES DIFFERENT VESSELS FOR DIFFERING PURPOSES Romans 9:21-22 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
God says that He had a purpose for allowing such differing vessels. And, we know when clay is fired, it cannot be moulded into another vessel. Popular church doctrine turns election into a matter of belief and any person’s choice instead of God‘s sovereign choice.
WE KNOW THERE ARE TWO SEEDS RIGHT FROM GENESIS.
There are religious persons in the assemblies, “Not having the Spirit”-[Jude 19] , and that there also are those whose spirit can witness with God’s Spirit that they are children of God. The natural man cannot receive the things of the Spirit of God-[1 Cor.2:14]. So we know that there is a difference in ‘spirit’ between peoples in the assemblies.
This goes back to Genesis 1 and 2 where we find two seeds, “The seed of the Serpent” or the “natural man” and “The Seed of the woman” both of whom continue until this day. But the Churches say the natural man converts to become one of God’s people.
- WE KNOW THAT NOT EVERYONE IS PLANTED IN THE GARDEN BY GOD.
Matthew 15:13-14 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
Jesus tells us that the tares are planted by the “enemy” and that they will be “rooted up“ and are first burned before the wheat is gathered. [The ‘rapture’ of the wicked]. Notice who is taken first.
- WE KNOW THAT THE WORD TRANSLATED AS “GENTILES” IS USED OF ISRAELITES. Cor. 10:1-2 “Moreover Brethren, I would not have you ignorant, how that all OUR FATHERS were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea [i.e. the Red Sea], and were baptised unto Moses”. This determines that we can know that these Corinthians [as other ‘Gentiles” addressed] were Israelites. “Goyim” [Heb] and “ethnos” [Gr.] are used of Israel too. A look through a concordance will convince anyone about this.
- WE KNOW THAT ADOPTION ONLY PERTAINS TO ISRAEL. Rom. 8 “Who are Israelites to whom pertaineth the adoption”.
Adoption refers to the adoption or the placing of “Sons” [huios] out of the “Children” [teknon] of Israel and adoption does not “pertain” to other than Israel.
WE KNOW GOD HAS ANOINTED HIS PEOPLE.
John 2:27 “But the anointing which you have received abideth in you..”.
John 3:9 “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin, because his seed remaineth in him”.
John 5:18 “We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not”.
Even if this contradicts conventional theology, we know that the Apostle John is right in agreeing with Paul in, “Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. [2 Cor. 1:21].
“Us“ and “Our” does not include anyone else. [The matter of “sin’” here will not be discussed here but note that it has to do with “seed”]. Churches and commentaries dodge this mention of seed because they wrongly want to include all races. God commands us to be separate from other races.
WE KNOW THAT ONLY ISRAELITES CAN BECOME “LOST” [SHEEP].
Luke 19:9-10 “He also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
Lost = apollumi which means being set aside for punishment for having broken God’s law. It is these lost sheep that Jesus came to save. Jesus came to save sheep, but not goats [Esau-Edom and jews and other mongrels are the goats].
SOME MAJOR POINTS THAT ARE THE BASIS OF POPULAR WRONG BELIEFS.
“Born again”. Jesus actually said, “Ye must be born “from above”. “Anothen”, the word means “from an origin in the past”
“God so loved the world”. It is easily demonstrated that the world here is that world of the context, and does not mean the world of every race.
“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature”. The Gospel is that of the Kingdom of God over Israel. The “creature” refers to things made by man, that is, this command is to go to houses and cities built where Israelites live.
“Gentiles” = Goyim and ethnos. These words are also used of Israelites, and basically means any group of a common origin, which may be Israelite or non-Israelite and this, is determined by context.
“Grafting in”. Rom 11:17.[Grafting “back” only can be done to the same family stock].
“Adoption”. Rom. 8:15-23 Rom. 9:4, Gal 4:5, Eph 1:5. The word huiosthesiais about “the placing as “sons” from out of “children” of Israel.
“Abraham’s Seed”. Gal. 3:16 where “Christ” is a verbal adjective. It is Abraham’s seed which is anointed [christ].
“Jews”. In the plural it refers to the Judean Nation – [multiracial].
“Pilgrims and Strangers”-[Heb 11:13 I Pet. 1:11]. There are differing words translated as “Strangers”, some refer to Israelites and others refers to foreigners or non-Israelites.
“The Church” which is called out of Israel, not out of every race.
“All”, “Every”, “whosoever” refers to “all” of each context, not all of everything else.
“The world” is “that world of each context”, not the whole planet. If we read “that world” for “the world” we would be more accurate. There are differing “worlds” in Scripture.
“The earth” usually has the meaning, “that particular earth or piece of land”. Each country has its own earth. It is false to make a national or geographical term into a racial term. For example, it is easy to prove that the Roman Centurion was an Israelite. All Americans are not White, but many Americans are White.
“Man” and “Men”. There are differing words for “man”. There is the “Enosh” man and the “Adam” man, as well as others and sometimes men only are being addressed and sometimes only woman are being addressed.
A covenant relationship is necessary to have a relationship with God, and the New Covenant is not made with all races – See Hebrews 8:8-10, and below.
The doctrine of the Exclusiveness of Israel is a strong and mighty tower, with unmoveable foundations. It cannot be moved because the God of Israel established it. We could not keep the Mosaic covenant, that’s why Jesus came. The Abrahamic covenant, however, was established by Yahweh as a one-sided covenant that could never be broken. This is an exclusive covenant between God and the White descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. All others are excluded. Your pastor is in error and sin for trying to include others into this exclusive, racial covenant. But, as we’ve seen, Your pastor is wrong about almost everything in the Bible, just as Scripture said he would be in these last days.
