The so-called Rainbow Nation of South Africa has become a nation of murderers, rapists, thieves, rebels, and Satanists. The current situation has placed the country on par with the wicked cities of Sodom and Gomorrha, which were destroyed by God with brimstone and fire from heaven, in ancient times. – (Genesis 19: 24)
The sadistic and brutal murder of a 17 year-old schoolgirl, Anika Smit, this week at her home in Theresapark, in the north of Pretoria, has once again outraged many South Africans. Anika’s father found his daughter’s dead and naked body in the bedroom with her lower arms chopped off. Criminologists believe that the murder could only have been committed by a psychopathic person or persons harbouring an incredible amount of hatred.
Let’s pause for a moment and reflect on this ‘incredible amount of hatred’ that has infected our lives, because let’s face it, --- it is not only psychopathic killers who are harbouring an incredible amount of hatred. Average law-abiding folk, who have never harmed a soul all their lives, are also harbouring hatred. Hate-speech and accusations are flying around everywhere. You can see it on blog sites, social network sites, and on the front pages of our newspapers. While our politicians are promoting hatred and our President disregards it, and while people are becoming more-and-more agitated, the devil is laughing his head off --- because everything is working out just fine for him, exactly as planned!
"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?" (II Corinthians 6: 14)
The above text, which is often used in the context of marriage, basically sums up the current situation and also provides a strong hint why the world is in a state of turmoil. It is worthwhile for Christians to study the rest of the passage in II Corinthians chapter 6, because it gives a very clear-and-crisp message.
A cold hard fact here in South Africa is that white folk with conservative views, will instinctively associate the word ‘unbeliever’ with the majority Black folk living in the land. This perception has been reinforced over the years because the overwhelming majority of vicious ‘ungodly’ crimes are committed by blacks, and also because their modern traditional ways still reflect ancient customs that are perceived as ‘primitive behaviour’, or behaviour that does not conform to the modern Christian way of living.
Although people who accuse others of ungodly behaviour can often justify why they feel that way, ranting and raving about it seldom achieves anything positive. The bottom line is that crime and the most cruel acts of violence have been committed by people from all walks of life, and by people from various racial groups. Crime targets everyone irrespective of colour, culture, or creed.
However, history has shown that the black tribes of Africa have created for themselves a rather negative image of lawlessness over the years, and it has often been said that God has abandoned Africa many years ago. It was this perception of Africa that prompted me to do some research on the subject, because surely God will never abandon people whom He created.
I believe the evolutionists have a great deal to do with Africa’s negative image. They have been trying for years to persuade all mankind that our ancient ancestors were primitive apes. These fraudsters have attacked the minds of our children with this ungodly theory from the very first day they started school. Our libraries are stocked with colourful textbooks filled with lies and imaginary man-made sketches showing how apes slowly evolved into modern man. To make matters even worse, the evolutionists have created artwork in their textbooks which depict the features of these apelike creatures as black negroes. Our kids thus grew up with the notion that black people evolved from apes.
Recent evidence from archaeogenetics is also trying very hard to persuade mankind that ALL HUMANS have one common ancestor who evolved in Africa about 200,000 years ago. Although this is partially true, as it relates directly to the ancient Black Races of Africa, it is just another vain attempt to introduce a false sense of so-called ‘United Peace’ among ALL races, and to ultimately disguise the true source of evil!
THE ORIGIN OF THE BLACK RACES
Although this may come as a surprise to some Christians, the creation of the ancient Black Races are in fact mentioned in the first book and first chapter of our Holy Bibles in Genesis 1: 26-31. It starts with the famous words:
“And God said, Let us make man in our image…”
These first humans (God’s creatures) were the ancient hunter-gatherers, who survived on planet earth by hunting and eating wild animals and by gathering edible plants from the bush, or who lived off the sea along the shorelines of Africa, and later Asia when they migrated out of Africa. They existed ages before God formed the first White man, --- long before the Satan-child Cain was born, long before the Hebrew Israelites were given God’s Law, and long before the first Asians started appearing in the East.
(The White Race – the Adamites were formed by our Creator many years later, as described in Genesis 2: 6 - 8, --- not in Africa, but in Central Asia. However, they have no connection with the Oriental or Mongolic races that developed, more or less, in that same region, i.e. - after Cain was expelled eastward. More about this later!)
DNA analysis has confirmed that some Black races dispersed out of Africa and mixed with other races some 50,000 years ago. For example, according to palaeoanthropologist Mike Morwood, the origin of the Australian Aborigines was not marked by migrations from Asia as initially thought, but from Africa. The only reason why some modern Australians of Aboriginal descent look very Anglo-European, is because of intermixing with other lighter-skinned ‘Mongolic’ races over successive generations, 1000’s of years after leaving African soil.
Incidentally, the only way the first Aborigines could have reached Australia from the African continent was by travelling through Northern Africa, the land now known as Egypt, crossing the Sinai Peninsula travelling eastwards through Asia, heading south-east and then hopping over several land bridges, short sea-crossings and islands in the South Pacific.
The last ice age only ended about 10,000 years ago, so much of the extreme northern and southern parts of our planet were still covered in ice sheets. According to Wikipedia, water was taken from the oceans to form the ice at high latitudes, thus global sea levels dropped by about 120 meters, exposing the continental shelves and forming land-bridges between land-masses for animals (and humans) to migrate.
During deglaciation, the melted ice-water returned to the oceans, causing sea level to rise. This process caused sudden shifts in coastlines and hydration systems resulting in newly submerged lands, emerging lands, collapsed ice dams resulting in salination of lakes, new ice dams creating vast areas of freshwater, and a general alteration in regional weather patterns on a large scale. This deglaciation effect can explain why many people of the darker races, who migrated out of Africa, were left stranded on oceanic islands scattered all over the planet. And NO, Noah’s flood did not wipe them all out, because this flood was NOT global as commonly believed by most Christians.
DID THE BLACK RACES EVOLVE INTO A WHITE RACE?
The physical characteristics of a racial group are genetically determined at the moment of conception, or more accurately at the moment of creation. Living in a cold or a hot climate cannot change the genetic make-up of a race.
If a large group of Black folk had to move to Iceland and live there for any length of time, and not mix with any other race they will NEVER, not in a million years, “evolve” into blue-eyed, blond-haired White people! The reverse is equally true. If a large group of White’s had to relocate permanently to Equatorial Africa and live there for any length of time without mixing with other groups, the sun may tan their skin golden-brown but their hair colour, eye colour, and facial characteristic will NEVER change. When a new baby is born, that baby will be White, not Black! A gene pool can only change if enough members of that gene pool physically mix and integrate and have offspring with a gene pool outside the original group. This is a scientific-proven fact!
“Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? ….” (Jeremiah 13:23)
THE ORIGIN OF THE WHITE ADAMIC RACE
“And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and THERE WAS NOT A MAN TO TILL THE GROUND.” - (Genesis 2: 5)
(There were men on earth, but they were not farmers! Hunter-gatherers maybe, -- Yes!)
"But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. And the LORD God FORMED MAN of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man WHOM HE HAD FORMED." – (Genesis 2: 6 - 8)
According to Arthur Kemp’s book, “March of the Titans – A History of the White Race”, the first modern White racial type only emerged between approximately 40,000 BC and 15,000 BC in differing parts of Europe and the Near East (Asia). This time period is known as the Late Paleolithic period, also known generically as the Stone Age. This first racial type is known as Cro-Magnon man - after a site in the Dordogne region of France where the first skeletal remains were found. Cro-Magnon man is the first biped life form with whom modern Whites can clearly claim a direct genetic affinity. White racial history therefore begins many 1000’s of years after the creation of the Black races, --- around the year 35,000 BC.
(Although this date appears to be in direct conflict with the biblical creation of Adam, which most scholars have determined to be somewhere around 4000 BC, the Holy Bible in fact, does not say in what year Adam was formed. However, I am inclined to believe that there may be crucial errors in some scientific dating-methods used to determine the age of old skeletons.)
EVE CREATED FROM ADAM’S OWN FLESH AND BONES
Like most ‘full-blooded’ men today, the outward appearance of a woman and her beauty plays a major role in the choice of a lifelong sexual partner. God made Eve from a rib he had taken from Adam. He thus made her from Adam’s own flesh and bones.
“And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh…” (Genesis 2: 23).
If these words by Adam do not exemplify the fact that the Black woman who had migrated from Africa were not sexually appealing to him, then I don’t know what else will! We must also take into consideration that Eve was formed after Adam, and that he must have spent some time without a partner, --- the poor chap!
Adam’s heart must have leapt with joy when he first laid eyes on Eve: “Wow, thank you God! She looks like me and she is absolutely gorgeous!” Well, Satan thought so too, and he just couldn’t leave her alone, …. and we all know what happened next!
(Take note: Biblical proof regarding the skin-colour of the Adamic race will be provided in subsequent articles in this series).
THE SATAN-CHILD ‘CAIN’ IS BORN
The biblical evidence in Genesis suggests that Eve may have carried fraternal twins in her womb (also known as Dizygotic twins). This can only occur when two fertilized eggs are implanted in the uterine wall at the same time, and when these two eggs are independently fertilized by two different sperm cells, in other words, two different fathers! But yet, Adam did not reject Cain because he looked different, or because there was something noticeably peculiar about him. Both brothers, Cain and Abel, grew up together. Abel became a keeper of sheep, while Satan’s son Cain, became a tiller of the ground. When they reached the required age to present their respective offerings to the Lord, Cain’s offering was rejected and Abel’s was accepted. This little incident made Cain so angry and envious (traits that can only come from the devil), that he rose up and murdered his brother, Abel.
Soon after that incident the Satan-child Cain was banished from Eden --- to the East.
LOCATION OF THE GARDEN OF EDEN
I suppose before we can debate the issue of Cain’s banishment eastwards, it would be good to know where exactly on earth Eden was located. The biblical account places the garden "eastward, in Eden," and accordingly "Eden" properly denotes the larger territory which contains the garden, rather than being the name of the garden itself: -- it is, thus, the garden located in the Land of Eden.
This geographical location of the larger territory known as Eden is described in Genesis chapter 2 verses 10 to 14. From this description it appears to be quite a vast region, but despite the landmarks and names given in the Bible, it still does not shed light on the exact location of Eden. Most historians put the Garden somewhere in the Middle East.
Charles A. Wiesman, in The Origin Of Race And Civilization, suggests that the Eden of the Bible was located on the Pamir Plateau in central Asia. He states on page 135 of his book that, "The location of the Garden of Eden was the Pamir Plateau which has four rivers flowing out of it as described in Genesis chapter 2. Pamir, the site of Eden, lies east of Mesopotamia and Persia where ancient tradition (as well as Genesis 2:8) places its location. East of Eden lies the Tarim Basin, the original homeland of the Adamic race and location of the Great Flood of Genesis."
All things considered, I think we can safely assume that the Garden of Eden was located in the Middle-Near East, and any person who is expelled further east than that, would be in a region known as the Far East.
THE CURSE OF MISCEGENATION
The subject of race-mixing (also known as miscegenation) is a rather touchy topic, especially for people of mixed race.
It’s a subject that can be approached and debated from various angles, but the harder one tries to organize the facts into a comprehensible article that will not offend anyone, the more difficult it becomes to convince people that the source of this element lies deeply imbedded in iniquity.
Interracial marriage and interracial sex has taken place since ancient history in various countries all over the world, hence the reason why we have such a variety of different races on earth today. The worldview concerning this issue strongly supports the perception that it has no connection whatsoever with the concepts of wickedness or sin. This perception is far from the truth, but we shall see later how God turned this curse into a blessing.
The mixing of different racial groups (miscegenation) between the black and white races (two separate races from two creations) began soon after the satan-child Cain was expelled from Eden --- to the East. Before Cain’s expulsion the Adamic race interbred among their own kind as their early genetic-structure allowed for this, --- but Cain did not marry one of his sisters, as so ardently propagated by modern-day creation-science evangelists. His sisters would surely have recognised him as the man who so brutally killed their brother, --- so God set a mark upon Cain, “lest any finding him should kill him.” (Genesis 4: 15).
What exactly that mark was, is a debatable question, but it obviously gave Cain sufficient protection to dwell and survive among total strangers, a darker-skinned race of people, who at that point in time were settled in Eastern-Asia after a long migration-trek from the African continent.
An instinctive trait of survival in those ancient times must have been the habitual drive to kill anything that posed a threat to their existence or their safety. Cain must have been very concerned when he said: “…that every one that findeth me shall slay me.” Genesis (4: 14) --- But Cain was accepted by these strangers, and soon married a woman, whom I presume (in the light of recent archaeogenetic evidence) could only have been an African woman. The Bible tells us that she conceived a son called Enoch, who was named after a city Cain built in that region.
This interracial marriage between the Satan-child ‘Cain’ and the ancient beings from the first creation is, in my humble opinion, the trigger that activated the birth of a new race of people on planet earth, --- namely the Mongoloid race of East Asia.
(Please take note that I am not implying here that all Africans or all Asians are from the devil, or that evil originates from them. I am purely sketching a timeline of how Cain’s seed spread through the nations of the earth, starting from ancient times.)
THE MONGOLIAN SPOT
The Mongolian spot is a congenital developmental condition exclusively involving the skin. The blue colour is caused by melanocytes, melanin-containing cells, that are deep under the skin. It usually covers one or more of the lumbosacral area (lower back), the buttocks, flanks, and shoulders.
Mongolian spots are most prevalent among Mongols, and other Asian groups, such as the Chinese, Taiwanese, Japanese, and Koreans. Nearly all East Asian infants are born with one or more Mongolian spots. They also occur in 90-95% and 85-90% of East African and Native American infants, respectively. Approximately 90% of Polynesians and Micronesians are born with Mongolian spots as are 46% of Hispanic children. Click here for more info and photographs regarding this topic.
(I’ll leave your imagination to run wild on speculations concerning the colour of Cain’s skin. All I know is that my face turns blue when I get cold - LOL.)
There is no doubt that Cain was a highly intelligent being and that the Book of Genesis conveys this clearly. Besides the fact that Enoch was probably one of the first cities ever built in that region (which already says a lot about his intellect), Cain’s offspring (Jabal) were the original inventors of musical instruments such as the harp and the organ – (Genesis 4: 21). Another one of Cain’s offspring, Tubalcain, was an instructor of every artificer in brass and iron (Genesis 4: 22). --- In other words, he must have been a master-craftsman who instructed other craftsman in the delicate art of making brass and iron. Brass is a copper-zinc alloy, and isolated examples are known in China from as early as the 5th Millennium BC. Source
Why would God mention these seemingly insignificant details in the book of Genesis? The answer (as always) can be found in the scriptures:
“Turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am the LORD your God.” (Leviticus 19: 4)
Today, we still worship our possessions made from molten brass, iron, and other materials. Certain types of music has played an important role in the corruption of our youth. Certain types of music and the drug-culture go hand-in-hand.
THE FALLEN ANGELS - NEPHILIM
Remember that we are still in the pre-flood era of Genesis, but in the days when Noah was living – before the ark was built.
(I’m only mentioning this for the sake of our young Christians who are not entirely familiar with the Old Testament writings, so please forgive me for occasionally mentioning Biblical facts that are obvious to advanced scholars of the Holy Scriptures.)
Besides the interracial sex going on between Cain’s brood and the African races, another strange (supernatural) sexual encounter was taking place at that time. This led to a rather complicated and messy reproductive scenario, which threatened the future survival of the entire human race.
“There were giants (Nephilim) in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” – (Genesis 6: 4)
The etymology of the Hebrew word “nephilim” means “fallen ones.” The reference to “sons of God” in the above verse is a reference to God’s angels, but in this case they were not “good” angels, but like Satan - they were rebellious angels who were disrespectful and in defiance to God’s laws of the universe.
Ridding the Earth of these Nephilim was one of God's main purposes for flooding the Earth in Noah's time. If God had ignored this problem, goodness knows what genetic concoctions of half-man-beast would have developed from that evil brood.
After mentioning the Giants in verse 4 above, the very next verse (5) states:
“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
This is followed by verses 6 to 8 which states:
“And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD."
Although the flood could obviously not have killed the fallen angels, for they are supernatural ‘beings’, the flood-waters killed the vast majority of these half-human offspring, - the Giants, those terrible monsters of iniquity!
These “bad” angels are mentioned in the New Testament books of II Peter chapter 2 verse 4 and also in Jude in chapter 1 verse 6. The very next verse in Jude talks about the wicked cities of Sodom and Gomorrha, which God destroyed with brimstone and fire from heaven – (Genesis 19: 24).
The total destruction of these two cities occurred many years after the great flood of Noah, so my common sense tells me that these fallen angels (or their progeny) had much to do with the awful wickedness that prevailed in those cities. The verse in Genesis 6:4 specifically states that, “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that…”. These giants and/or their offspring were thus not entirely destroyed during Noah’s flood. The Bible confirms this because these Giants are mentioned in several other Biblical texts in the Old Testament, --- in the book of Numbers (13: 33), Deuteronomy, and also in Joshua.
The last remnants of the Giants were finally exterminated by the Israelites in the kingdom of Og (an ancient Amorite king) at the battle of Edrei in Bashan - (modern day Syria).
“All the kingdom of Og in Bashan, which reigned in Ashtaroth and in Edrei, who remained of the remnant of the giants: for these did Moses smite, and cast them out.” – (Joshua 13: 12).
A few surviving specimens of this ‘supernatural’ race of giants later terrorized the Israelites in the time of David. These giants were, among others, Goliath (whom David slew), Sippai, and Lahmi – (See I Chronicles 20). Take note of the description given to one of these giants in I Chronicles 20 verses 6 - 7:
“And yet again there was war at Gath, where was a man of great stature, whose fingers and toes were four and twenty, six on each hand, and six on each foot and he also was the son of the giant. But when he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea David's brother slew him. These were born unto the giant in Gath; and they fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants.”
The most fascinating aspect of the Biblical account of these giants that roamed the Middle-East region of earth in ancient times, is the fact that remnants of the gigantic cities they built in Bashan, still exist to this very day. These cities are located in modern-day Syria immediately east of the Golan Heights to the south of Damascus. Click here to read a condensed history of Bashan. For those you are interested in a detailed and fascinating description of these ancient cities compiled by Rev. J.L. Porter D.D (1877), I highly recommend that you surf over to The Giant Cities of Bashan and Syria's Holy Places, or the Wikipedia article dealing with Argob.
See also Appendix 25 From The Companion Bible for a detailed explanation of the fallen angels – The Nephilim.
A brief discussion regarding the topic of the Nephilim was necessary for purposes of this article, for several reasons: Firstly, to dispel the myth that superhuman creatures with magical powers are living on this earth today, and secondly, to caution Christians to be aware of non-biblical philosophies which propose that all human beings are fallen angels, and are thus inherently evil. And lastly, to illustrate how intense the spiritual warfare was between God and Satan, and to what lengths Satan went, even in the earliest ancient times, to destroy God’s creatures. It surely could only have been Satan himself who persuaded those angels to come down to earth.
The evil we experience on earth today comes directly from Satan, and it was planted on this earth at the very moment when the serpent impregnated Eve with the seed of Cain. The great flood of Noah did not destroy it, because we will see later how the spirit of Cain continued to exist in the rebel-character known as “Nimrod”. Nimrod was the son of Cush, grandson of Ham, great-grandson of Noah.
The story about Noah and the Great Flood is not a myth. The flood really occurred on this earth but it was not global as commonly believed by most Christians. For those who are curious to know more about this issue, are welcome to surf over to the article - Noah's Flood not global, nor does the Bible say it was: proofs.
Hundreds of Biblical charts have been drawn up by various people, and thousands of books have been written in an attempt to compile a ‘Table of Nations’ from Noah’s three sons, (using the Genesis account in chapter ten). Some people (not all) have, in their attempt to shed light on the ethnic identities of all nations, created more confusion and more reason for sceptics to dispute God’s Word. I’m not saying that there is absolutely no truth in these people’s efforts, or that the data explaining the roots of various ethnic identities are worthless. My argument is simply that the flood was not global and people of mixed race already existed in various parts of the world at the time of the flood, and that these people survived the flood.
THE DIVISION OF NATIONS
According to the Book of Genesis, the division of nations occurred after the Great Flood in the time of Peleg, ---
“…for in his days was the earth divided; …” (Genesis 10:25) and (I Chronicles 1:10)
This great division among people, who originally all spoke one language, commenced at the time, when the construction of a large city and a tower (Tower of Babel) was in progress. This happened several years after the Great Flood of Noah.
“And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.” -- (Genesis 11:1-9)
This mass division between people occurred in the land of Shinar, a broad designation applied to Mesopotamia, --- in other words, modern day Iraq. TAKE NOTE: Genesis 11:2 states that these people came FROM THE EAST, found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. This region was Nimrod's kingdom, and is connected with the Mesopotamian towns Babylon (Babel), Uruk, Akkad and Calneh.
As I’ve mentioned before, Nimrod was the son of Cush, grandson of Ham, great-grandson of Noah. Although he was known as "a mighty hunter before the Lord," there is nothing in the Bible indicating that he was a man of God. The reference to ‘mighty hunter’ is not a complimentary testimony about Nimrod. It is exactly the opposite! According to this source, the name Nimrod means “The Rebel”. It comes from the Hebrew verb marad, meaning “rebel.” Adding an “n” before the “m” it becomes an infinitive construct, “Nimrod”.
THE FIRST ATTEMPT AT ESTABLISHING A NEW WORLD ORDER
The story concerning the Tower of Babel, was the first attempt by a large assembly of men to establish a New World Order on planet earth. They wanted to make a big name for themselves, thus manifesting their independence from God. With reference to this historical incident, I’ve often heard people say, “What kind of God would want to stop the progress of mankind?” – or words to that effect.
Firstly, it must be noted that God did not stop their progress, He simply delayed the process a little by confusing tongues, and in so doing He forced people of similar language to group together and disperse. If He allowed mankind back then to continue with their efforts to become independent from God, then today we would all have been slaves of a One World System, controlled by Satan, void of obedience to, and reliance upon faith in the Lord God and Jesus Christ.
In order for prophesy to be fulfilled, the events in history had to happen in a timely manner….
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; …”
(See Ecclesiates 3:1— and onwards for the rest of these beautiful words of wisdom.)
For Christians living in modern times, it is important to realize that any manmade system designed with intentions to unite all humanity and all religions into ONE structure, -- a structure that has removed God, our Creator, from its founding declarations, is doomed to miserable failure! The country South Africa, where I am living at present, is but one example but there are plenty others.
GOD’S WRITTEN LAWS WERE GIVEN TO ONE SPECIFIC GROUP ONLY
In ancient times, God’s written Laws, as contained in the Old Testament Scriptures, were only given to one specific group of people namely, the Israelites. These laws controlled how the Israelites were to live their lives, but it also provided rules on how they were to treat others.
They were also given specific instructions not to allow certain people to infiltrate their religion, because these people hired Balaam to curse the children of Israel:
“A bastard (from illegitimate birth or forbidden marriage) shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD. An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever…” – (Deuteronomy 23: 2-3 and Nehemiah 13: 1).
While on the subject of Balaam, it is worthwhile to note that this perverted ‘religion’, established by Cain, is also mentioned in the New Testament writings of II Peter 2:15, and also in Jude 1:11, as well as Revelation 2:14.
Jude, which speaks of the sinful cities of Sodom and Gomorrha and other cities like them, where people gave themselves over to fornication, and sexual intercourse with “strange flesh”, also gives an explicit warning:
“Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.” (Jude 1: 7-11)
By the hand of God, the Israelites were also ordered into battle to subdue the land inhabited by heathens:
The Amorites, for example (not to be confused with Ammonites), who inhabited the land of Canaan, (descendants of Canaan, son of Ham) were defeated with great slaughter at Gibeon. (Joshua 10:10).
The Israelites did not understand God’s wisdom back then, and ignored many of His instructions, over and over. The expression, “Thy shalt not…” appears 1213 times, in both the Old and New Testament books of the King James Version of the Holy Bible, but yet, --- like disobedient children who ignore their parents and elders, the Israelites chose to learn the hard way through trial and error, until they were eventually scattered abroad, and lost among strangers as sheep without a shepherd…. And several years later we read in the New Testament book of Matthew the words of Jesus (who came to earth as God in the flesh) as he spoke to His disciples:
“The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few…” (Matthew 9:37)
The African National Congress (ANC) effectively removed God from our system of government and voted to eliminate the phrase, "In humble submission to Almighty God" from South Africa’s new constitution, declaring the country a secular nation, --- despite the fact the vast majority (almost 80%) of the population were Christians. The ANC were supported by the major opposition parties such as the Democratic Alliance (DA), United Democratic Movement (UDM), and also the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP).
TO THE TWELVE TRIBES WHICH ARE SCATTERED ABROAD, TAKE HEED:
The United Nations founding charter does not mention the word “God” – not even once! It is was forbidden by the founders of the United Nations by original decree. This should raise the attention of any Christian who takes his/her faith seriously! Source
This concludes Part 2 of this series.
Part 3 is here
