Awaiting the Covenant?

A remark in a recent video sermon by an American Anglo-Israel advocate was unsettling. He made a statement in an off-hand way that “Christians are still under the Old Covenant because the New Covenant is not here yet.” This is quite apparently a source of confusion for some believers today. Perhaps he and his little group of followers see this as a convenient justification for obeying some of their favorite precepts of Old Testament law, but they forget that one cannot pick and choose what they want to obey under the Old Covenant, and ignore the rest. Yet this...

God’s Judgment on Jerusalem

It is probably safe to say that the average Christian’s knowledge of the Biblical book of Isaiah is limited to only a short passage or two. One of these is the famous prophecy of the future glory of the millennial city of Jerusalem found in chapter 2, verses 2 through 4: “And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come...

A leading early twentieth century British-Israel exponent, Rev. J.G. Taylor, remarked, “People are apt to colour the statements of Scripture in the way they paint their possessions—namely, according to prevailing ideas.

In secularities it exerts a strange and subtle spell, and seems to blind the faculties of perception, rendering palatable the most absurd or injurious of customs. It exercises a similar sway in the religious realm, for theories which we should now pronounce doubtful, or even wicked, have been defended with the extremist confidence by...

Pastor Jory Brooks’ Comments: Ferrar Fenton (1832–1920) was the acclaimed author of “The Holy Bible In Modern English,” the product of a half century of labor, first published in 1903 after being issued in sections over eleven years. He was a confirmed British-Israelite who dedicated his Bible translation to “all those nations who have sprung from the race of the British Isles.” In a letter to a correspondent, Fenton wrote, “I am a believer in the Identity…What we Identists need to do is to win the literary and learned world, and I applied to them as a scholar to...

Understanding the Purim Holiday

Christian believers these days are becoming interested in Jewish holidays and customs, and with an increase in interest in the festival of Purim since the release of the Christian film, “One Night With The King,” based upon the Esther narrative. The Purim holiday is interwoven with the inspiring story of a young Jewish girl, Esther, and her cousin, Mordecai, who with resolute cunning and bravery prevent a wicked Haman from destroying the Jewish community in ancient Persia. The Jewish holiday of Purim or “Lots,” in fact, has its entire basis as a brief mention in the Book of Esther,...
