Moses warning to the Elders
You know, various speakers in this organization have been teaching the Israel Truth and expounding the Gospel of the Kingdom since 1909. It began with a whisper, then a shout and by the 1930’s, hundreds, sometimes thousands, were lined up on a Sunday evening to hear a message of hope and truth. Then came the war years and after the war, the claiming of the “Israel” name, a name which barely won out over the other suggested name for the modern Israeli State, that is “Zion”. But, it was enough since that time to identify the people of Jewry as the Israelites of the Bible, some of whom undoubtedly are. Yet, sadly, the overwhelming body of Israelites, or the Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian, some Germanic and kindred peoples, turned a deaf ear to the message we sought to impart and the shout once again became a whisper, often barely inaudible. At the same time, the war on Christianity seemed to pick up tempo and as decade after decade passed, the will of Christians became subdued to the point where it seemed easier to give in and just accept a new reality of God’s Plan, even casting denigration on His precious son, Jesus Christ. Let’s not delude ourselves, western Christian nations fell prey to a masterful plan devised by enemies of Christ, but aided by collaborators, including many theologians, some part of the plan and some duped. An important cog in the war was to mix the Christian nations with scores of peoples of other religions and create confusion and doubt about the true faith, making it easier to promote ecumenism and disbelief in the Divinity of Christ.
The result, of course, has been a steep decline of the true faith, wealth, freedoms, etc and a steep acceleration of greed, debt, perversion, crime, drugs and morality. We are nations in peril.
God is not amused. He is jealous, and angry, as True Israel gravitates to strange gods and turns away from Him.
If only the eyes of Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, et al, peoples everywhere could be opened to truth and they realized they are the Israelites of the Bible. They would then likely believe the stories, warnings, etc, related in the Old Testament. They might understand God’s Words in Deuteronomy 28; that if we walk in righteousness, fantastic blessings would come our way but if we walk as most in the western nations walk today, curses are the nations’ lot in life. Read them, they go beyond the great burden of debt or being controlled by non-Israelites, we are reaping the whirlwind of our disobedience to God and the pain just becomes deeper and more severe. He may love us, I don’t know why; we may be called by the name of the Lord, (Christian) but He will not intervene until we repent and go to our knees and seek His help. (2 Chronicles 7:14 and Hosea 5:15) Right now, our western nations are grovelling in the muck and as the old Limbo lingo shouts, “How low can we go.”
If only our brethren would know we are Israel, then we could learn from long ago stories of the plight of Israel. Remember, the fascinating thing about these stories is that they apply for all times, when a prophetic utterance. This is referred to as a dual fulfillment, perhaps more than dual. Yet, we can learn from early Israelite experiences and see how something that took place thousands of years ago is practically identical with what is taking place in our western nations today. These are not coincidences; these are God in action, getting a message across to His People Israel. There are many, many stories (or prophecies) we could relate to True Israel’s destiny. Take Jesus’ parables, for example, they are mostly personal stories with a deeper national meaning. Or hidden messages throughout the Gospel’s! I have written on some, like the article, “The Prophecy of Lazarus” or the booklet, “The Hidden Message of John 21”.
Yet, there are some writings in the Bible that are not stories, but warnings of latter day events, like the one we will examine today. It is a prophecy uttered by Moses shortly before he died. He sets the stage for it in Deuteronomy 31:28 by gathering the elders of the tribes of Israel and telling them (verse 29) that he knows that after his death the people will utterly corrupt themselves, do evil in the sight of the Lord, who will be provoked to anger.
Now this is important! We know this is a prophecy because Moses said it will take place in the Latter Days. Let’s begin by taking a brief look at the first fifteen verses of Chapter 32. Moses begins by saying “Hearken to my song” and then sets the theme of the chapter to describe the greatness of the LORD. “He is the Rock,” Moses said, “His ways are perfect and just, a faithful God who does no wrong.” Then describing True Israel in the latter days, Moses laments, “They have acted corruptly toward Him, to their shame they are no longer His children but a perverse and crooked generation.” Look into our nations, my friends, and you will recognize the truth of this statement.
Then Moses charges, “Is this the way you repay Him, you foolish and unwise people. Is He not your Creator, who made you and formed you?” We are really an ungrateful people, Moses describes how God set aside lands for us, guided us toward them, protected us, fed us, while all the time knowing He was our one and only God.
Yet, the next few verses smack of ingratitude. Verse 15 tells us how once a pampered Israel (Jeshurun is a pet name for Israel) became fully-fed, and swollen with pride, then forsook God and lightly esteemed the Rock of His Salvation. Think on this, how many of the large churches today bother to speak out against numerous political, economic, ecclesiastical and media leaders as they denigrate our Rock, Jesus Christ, on almost a daily basis.
God is not amused. He is jealous, and angry, as True Israel gravitates to strange gods and turns away from Him. This is demonstrated over and over when seeing half-filled churches who now, like those churches who manage to fill the pews, preach a watered-down message, that, as Paul warned in 2 Corinthians 11, has become accepted as true gospel. And so, what does God do? He told us in Hosea 5:15 and repeats it in Deuteronomy 32:20, “I will hide my face from them.” Make no mistake about it, the curses outlined in verses 19-25 are for covenant breakers and whether anyone of True Israel today is familiar with the Covenant, we are still covenant-breakers and this is precisely why God has hid His face from us. Not knowing is no excuse, the Apostle Paul told us to study to show ourselves approved, and study would enlighten us about the Covenant.
As an aside, there was a time from the early 1500’s to about 1820 AD when God again protected Israel. It was the time of the Reformation and the Bible refers to it as the “Church of Philadelphia” period. Revelation 3:8 describes it thusly, “I know thy works, behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hath not denied my name.” Sadly, the last of the church periods, “The Church of Laodicea” followed and exists today and has become so evil, as Moses prophesied that God has again hid his face from us. I encourage you to go on our website and watch my video, “What Will You Do When The End Comes”, particularly the last fifteen minutes dealing with Revelation 3:14-21.
There is some confusion over verse 21 but I believe God is saying that True Israel will fall in league with a people that are not really a people, after which calamity after calamity follows them, as they are led in the wrong direction. We should be able to identify our nations today as fitting this mould and the people to whom we have formed an alliance. Too late we of True Israel must learn that our strange gods of ecumenism, materialism, war, pleasure, sports, greed & power have practically ruined us. God makes it clear that it is He that has done this to True Israel,. Yet, He wishes True Israel would be wise enough to understand why He did so, because if they did, they would consider that their day of disaster is near. You know, when we look at the effective non-Israelite control of our well-being, the insurmountable debt of our nations, the plight of our people, the danger of an imminent financial collapse, leadership that is, at best, suspect, the growing strength of our enemies, the almost universal hatred of the Christian western nations and the precarious state of our freedom, it’s not too difficult identifying the great disaster ahead. Almost in derision, Moses exclaims, “For their rock is not as our Rock.” In other words, the strange gods can never take the place of our Rock, the Lord Jesus Christ, even though we have tried our best to force him out of our lives. But it is Jesus who has rejected us and he sums up the reason in Revelation 3:17, “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.”
Now, here is an important thing to keep in mind. God does not change and He told us in Hosea 5:15 and 2 Chronicles 7:14 that we must pray and seek His face before He will come to our rescue. So when, as verse 36 declares, God will judge His People and have compassion when He sees their strength is gone, we must, as Hosea 6:1-2 demonstrates, recognize that we have to return to the Lord and seek His healing in preparation of entering His Kingdom. When this takes place, the Lord will spring into action by returning to deal with His enemies, particularly the tares who have so long wracked havoc on our lands. For those of you who read my article on the Esau Dominion, I suggested that the harvest period for Esau arrived around the turn of the twenty-first century and looking throughout the years since then, it is astonishing to note the tragic condition change of the western nations. This, in itself, suggests we are not far away from Christ’s return.
When it was asked in Daniel 12:6 “How long shall it be to the end of these wonders”, Daniel heard the reply, “And I heard the man clothed in linen, [Jesus Christ, it is thought] which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth forever that it shall be for a time, times and a half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.”
I think it was Shakespeare who first penned, “The die is cast.” Well readers, THE DIE IS CAST.
