Editor’s Note: It is sad to report that Earl Mott passed on to his reward in early March. He had been a correspondent for this magazine for over ten years and his thoughtful articles were always popular with readers. This was his last article before retiring in 2001 and in memory of him, we are re-printing it. We shall miss Earl. We read in Psalm 139:7-10 David’s revelation of the universal nature of God in these words: “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there; if I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there shall thy hand lead me and thy right hand shall hold me.” The apostle John, the beloved disciple, put the same thought in his typically powerful and simple words, “God is Love.” We see from these inspired words of David and John that God is omnipresent Spirit and Mind, ever-present wherever man may find himself. Wherever we may be, in whatever dire circumstance, the God of Israel is ever at hand to save and to bless. The only barrier that would prevent us from reaching out and finding Him is our ignorance of Him, and so we see...Read More

“God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.”Psalm 62:11 Editor’s Note: During a recent meeting of good people, some Christian, some not, I couldn’t help but detect a feeling of futility when the world situation was discussed. Almost to a person, they felt there was nothing that could stem the downward tide in our society. When I brought up the name of Jesus, the discussion was basically ended. The next day, as I was seeking articles for the magazine, I came across this 1992 article written by long-time correspondent Earl Mott. It seemed to fit exactly what I should have relayed the previous evening. From the earliest records of Hebrew and Israelitish history we find that always among this people were found prophets and seers with a profound understanding of God. This enabled them (when the often stubborn, stiff-necked people would listen) to be obedient to His Will and to rise above what often seemed certain calamity into the safety of God’s government of events. Many, many times this was proved. We remember the account in Genesis of how Noah and his family were directed and protected when the flood covered the earth, and the ark in which they found refuge was set down on Ararat, a mountain peak of almost 17,000 feet. Thus they were saved. We have studied too in the...Read More
Editor’s Note: This is a story I wish I had written. Not only is it touching but it is a powerful reminder of what our Israel nations could be if we would only align ourselves with God Almighty. In his analogy of the little girl’s dilemma to the mammoth problems facing our nations today, Mr. Mott demonstrates how God is in control of every detail, no matter how minute. In the seventeenth century the English mathematician and physicist Isaac Newton, as he sat under an apple tree, observed the falling of an apple. Some say it hit him on the head! From this small and unimportant incident he worked out the law of gravity which operates throughout the universe. This discovery and the understanding of how the law works is the basis of much scientific achievement right up to our modern day. The force that controlled the insignificant fall of the apple also controls the orbits of the planets and the rolling of the worlds. We might draw the correct conclusion that even the smallest evidence which we ourselves observe of God’s control of events, and of spiritual Power over material resistance, reveals a Law, a Divine Law, which controls world-wide trends and the rise and fall of empires. We then see that small experiences of personal salvation spring from the same Divine Source as does the more earth...Read More
Our Anglo-Israel teaching is based solidly on the Bible, God’s great gift to the world. The basic purpose of the Bible is to give to man an understanding of the God of Israel. The first words of Genesis are, “In the beginning God”, and this gives an indication of its first priority. The Name of God or synonymous terms for His Holy Name are repeated over and over on almost every page. The Bible most effectively acquaints the prayerful reader with every aspect of God – as our loving Father, as the Creator of all that is real and permanent, as Protector, Redeemer, Healer, as omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, as righteous Judge of all the world. The reader is led to the conclusion that man is the humble servant of God, and that to be a blessing to his fellowman, man must be obedient to the Commandments, Statutes, and Judgments as laid down in the Bible. He must be a faithful follower of Christ – human effort must harmonize with the Will of God at every point. Otherwise we shall build on sand. Ecclesiastes 3:14 tells us, “Whatsoever God doeth it shall be forever. Nothing can be put to it or anything taken from it’ Nothing material can pass that test, since all that is material is destructible and eventually returns to dust. But God and all that He creates...Read More
Job searched persistently to find God. In Job 23:12 we read, “I have esteemed the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.” Prayerful fasting lifts man toward God because it proves the words of Matthew 4:4, “It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word which proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” The same thought is repeated in Luke 4:4. When we fast we are affirming it is the spirit that quickens, the flesh profits nothing. Such prayer and fasting denies material dependencies and reaches out instead to the God of Israel. In the final analysis God is our life and the length of our days, and we can draw the strength we need from knowing Him. Christians are assured that “Those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” Most Bible students have proved these statements for themselves in various degrees. When weary and discouraged we turn to inspiring Bible verses that lift us out of those self-centered moods of self pity or self love and lift us higher. They give us a glimpse of the Kingdom of God, with Christ reigning supreme, and we His humble servants safe in His care. The God of Israel has always...Read More
