Confederate Partisan Rangers

Throughout the Civil War, there existed many bodies of irregular cavalrymen, who, by sudden dashes on the rear and flanks of the Union armies, or in a night attack on the Federal trains, kept the outposts and train guard continually on the alert. As much of the rationing of the Confederate armies was through captured stores, these irregular bands often brought substantial aid to their starving comrades in the shape of Federal provision wagons, captured intact.|        These independent partisan bands were far from being guerrillas, bushwhackers, or "jayhawkers," as were those of the type of Quantrill, who, during his brief career, left a trail of fire and blood through the disputed territory of Kansas and Missouri. The leaders of the best of these partisans were men whose personalities had much to do with their success, and as their fame increased with their annoying operations against the Union armies, the latter had strict orders to kill or capture them at any cost.        Three of these brilliant, fearless, and daring Southern raiders became especially noted and feared, and in the history of the Confederate irregular cavalry, the names of Turner Ashby, John H. Morgan, and John S. Mosby stand in a class by themselves. The first two were killed during the war, but Mosby, whose death or capture was probably more desired by the North than that of either of the others, survived every engagement, fighting stubbornly for the Confederacy, even after Lee had surrendered at Appomattox.        Ashby was a handsome man, a daring soldier, and a superb horseman. At the outbreak of the war, he received a commission as captain of a band of picked rangers, working in conjunction with the main operations of the Confederate armies, but unhampered by specific instructions from a superior. He was rapidly promoted. As colonel of a partisan band he was a continual menace to the Federal trains, and moved with such rapidity as oftentimes to create the impression that several bodies of mounted troops were in the field instead of but one. Failing upon an isolated column of army wagons at dawn, he would strike a Federal camp thirty miles away by twilight of the same day. His men were picked by their leader with great care, and although there is reason to believe that Southern writers surrounded these troopers with a halo of romance, there is no disputing that they were brave, daring, and self-sacrificing.        Ashby himself was looked upon by many officers and men in the Union armies as a purely mythical character. It was said that no such man existed, and that the feats accredited to Ashby's rangers were in reality the work of several separate forces. Much of the mystery surrounding this officer was due to his beautiful white horse, strong, swift, and a splendid jumper. He and his horse, standing alone on a hill or ridge, would draw the Union troops on. When the latter had reached a point where capture seemed assured, Ashby would slowly mount and canter leisurely out of sight. When his pursuers reached the spot where he had last been seen, Ashby and his white charger would again be observed on the crest of a still more distant hill.        Only once during his spectacular career in the Confederate army was Ashby outwitted and captured, but even then he made his escape before being taken a mile by his captors--a detachment of the First Michigan Cavalry.        The Confederate leader was surrounded before he was aware of the presence of the Union troops, and the latter were within fifty rods of him when he saw several of them pushing along a cross-road which afforded the only avenue of escape. Nevertheless, Ashby made a dash for freedom. Vaulting into the saddle, the daring rider raced to beat the foremost Union trooper to the open road. Sergeant Pierson, who was in command of the little body of flankers, rode the only horse which could equal the speed of Ashby's fleet charger, and he and the Southerner reached the road crossing together--Pierson far in advance of his comrades. As Pierson neared Ashby, the latter fired at him with his revolver, but the Union trooper did not attempt to return the fire and Ashby himself replaced his weapon in the holster.        As the two men, magnificently mounted, came together, Ashby drew a large knife and raised it to strike. Pierson was a bigger and stronger man than Ashby, and reaching over, he seized Ashby's wrist with one hand while with the other he grasped the partisan leader's long black beard. Then, throwing himself from his horse, Pierson dragged the Confederate officer to the ground, and held him until the remaining Union troopers reached the scene of the struggle and disarmed Ashby.        The white horse had instantly stopped when Ashby was pulled from his back, and the captive was allowed to ride him back to the Union lines, slightly in advance of his captors, Sergeant Pierson at his side. The detachment had gone but a short distance when the mysterious white horse wheeled suddenly to one side, bounded over the high plantation fence which lined the roadside, and dashed away across the fields. Before the Union troops could recover from their surprise, Ashby was again free, and it was not long before he was once more reported by the Federal scouts as standing on a distant hill, engaged in caressing his faithful horse.        Only a few weeks later, this famous horse, which had become so familiar to the Union troops, was shot and killed by a sharpshooter belonging to the Fifth Michigan, who was attempting to bring down Ashby. Not long after, while leading his men in a cavalry skirmish, at Harrisonburg, during "Stonewall" Jackson's famous Valley campaign, Ashby met his own death, on June 6, 1862. As he fell, his last words to his troopers were: "Charge men! For God's sake, charge!"        Next to the gallant Ashby there was no partisan leader whose death created a greater loss to the South than John Hunt Morgan. He was a slightly older man than Ashby and had seen service in the Mexican War. When the call to arms sounded, he was one of the first to organize a company of cavalry and pledge his support to the Southern cause. He was fearless and tireless, a hard rider, and a man of no mean ability as a tactician and strategist. Morgan's men were picked for their daring and their horsemanship, and until the day of his death, he was a thorn in the flesh of the Union commanders.        Starting before daybreak, Morgan and his troopers would rush along through the day, scarcely halting to rest their weary and jaded horses. When, worn to the very limit of endurance, the exhausted animals refused to go farther, the cavalrymen would quickly tear off saddle and bridle, and leaving the horse to live or die, would hurry along to the nearest farm or plantation and secure a fresh mount.        At night, far from their starting-point, the dust-covered troopers threw themselves, yelling and cheering, on the Union outposts, riding them down and creating consternation in the camp or bivouac. Then, with prisoners or perhaps captured wagon trains, the rangers rode, ghostlike, back through the night, while calls for reenforcements were being passed through the Federal lines. By dawn, Morgan and his weary horsemen would have safely regained their own lines, while oftentimes the Union troops were still waiting an attack at the spot where the unexpected night raid had been made. Morgan's famous raid through the State of Ohio exerted a moral and political influence which was felt throughout the entire North.        On their raids, Morgan's men were usually accompanied by an expert telegraph operator. They would charge an isolated telegraph office on the railroad communications of the Union army, and, capturing the operator, would place their own man at the telegraph key. In this way they gained much valuable and entirely authentic information, which, as soon as known, was rushed away to the headquarters of the army.        At other times, Morgan's operator would "cut in" on the Federal telegraph lines at some distant point, and seated on the ground by his instrument, would read the Union messages for many hours at a time. This service to the Confederate leaders was of inestimable value, and creating a feeling among the Union signal-men that even cipher messages were not entirely safe from Morgan's men.        As Morgan was promoted from grade to grade, and the size of his command increased accordingly, he became more and more of an annoyance and even a terror to the North. His troopers were no longer mere rangers, but developed into more or less trained cavalry. Yet even then, his command showed a partiality for sudden and highly successful attacks upon Union outposts and wagon trains. The death of Morgan occurred near Greeneville, Tennessee, on September 4, 1864, when, being surrounded, he was shot down in a dash for life.        Colonel John S. Mosby, with his raiding detachments of varying size, was probably the best known and the most anxiously sought by the Union forces of any of the partisan leaders. Mosby's absolute fearlessness, his ingenious methods of operating, as well as his innate love of danger and excitement, all combined to make his sudden descents upon the Federal lines of communication spectacular in the extreme.        His almost uniform success and the spirit of romance which surrounded his exploits, drew thousands of recruits to his leadership, and had he desired, he could have commanded a hundred men for every one who usually accompanied him on his forays. But he continued throughout the war using small detachments of from twenty to eighty men, and much of his success was probably due to this fact, which permitted sudden appearances and disappearances. From beginning to end of the war, Mosby's raiders were a constant menace to the Union troops, and the most constant vigilance was necessary to meet successfully his skillfully planned stratagems.        On March 8, 1863, Mosby performed one of the most daring and effective feats of his career. In this case, as well as in others, it was the supreme boldness of the act which alone made it possible. Even with their knowledge of Mosby's methods, the Union officers could hardly conceive of such an apparently rash and unheard-of exploit being successful.        With a small band of carefully picked men, Mosby rode safely through the Union picket-lines, where the sentries believed the party to be Federal scouts returning from a raid. Upon reaching the vicinity of Fairfax Court House, Mosby entered the house used as headquarters by General Edwin H. Stoughton, woke the general, and demanded his surrender. Believing that the town had surrendered, the Union leader made no resistance. Meanwhile, each trooper in Mosby's little command had quietly secured several prisoners. Stoughton was forced to mount a horse, and with their prisoners Mosby and his cavalcade galloped safely back to their lines.        It was with similar strokes, original in conception and daring in execution, that Mosby kept thousands of Federal cavalry and infantry away from much-needed service at the front. After he became well established as a partisan ranger, his men were never organized as a tactical fighting body, and never had, as with other troops, an established camp. Through his trusty lieutenants, the call would be sent out for a designated number of men "for Mosby." This was the most definite information as to their mission that these volunteers ever received. In fact, they always moved out with sealed orders, but at the appointed time and place the rangers would assemble without fail. That Mosby wanted them was sufficient.        Many of these men were members of regular cavalry regiments home on furlough, others were farmers who had been duly enlisted in the rangers, and were always subject to call, still others were troopers whose mounts were worn out, and whose principal object was to secure Northern horses. The Union cavalry always claimed that among Mosby's men were a number who performed acts for which they were given short shrift when caught. Of course, the nature of the service performed by these rangers was subversive of discipline, and it is quite possible that many deeds were committed which the leader himself had absolutely nothing to do with and would not have sanctioned. But this is true with all warfare.        Mosby's expeditions often led him far within the Union lines, and the command was often nearly surrounded. On such occasions Mosby would give the word and the detachment would suddenly disintegrate, each trooper making his way back to his own lines through forests and over mountains as best he could. Frequently his men were captured. But Mosby seemed to bear a charmed life, and in spite of rewards for his capture and all manner of plans to entrap him, he continued his operations as a valuable ally to the main Confederate army.        Of course much of his success was due to the fact that he was ever operating in a friendly country. He could always be assured of authentic information, and wherever he went was certain of food, fresh horses, and means of concealment.        In 1864, Mosby was shot during one of his forays, and was left, apparently dying, by the Union troops, who failed to recognize him, in the house where he had been surprised. Learning soon after that the wounded Confederate was the famous leader of Mosby's rangers, the troops hastily returned to capture him or secure his dead body. But in the meantime, Mosby's men had spirited him away, and within a short time he and his men were again raiding Federal trains and outposts.        Until the very end of the war he kept up his indefatigable border warfare, and it was not until after the surrender at Appomattox, that Mosby gathered his men about him for the last time, and telling them that the war was over, pronounced his command disbanded for all time.

The Biblical Sabbath By: Dan Gayman

Our Creator established the biblical Sabbath on the seventh day of the first week of earth's history. The seven-day week is the most historic measure of time known to man. The origin of the seven-day week is the literal six days of creation (Genesis 1) plus the seventh day of rest, which concluded that first week. "And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day .... And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made" (Genesis 1:31; 2:2).The English word week is directly linked to the Hebrew root word for seven. In Scripture, the wordweek, in measuring days or years, is seven. The week is clearly visible in the six, literal twenty-four hour days of work followed by the Sabbath in Genesis one. The week, consisting of seven days, is pronounced in Genesis 8:10 & 12 as Noah waited for the water to recede. Jacob fulfilled his week of seven years for Rachel (Genesis 29:18,27-28). The seven weeks that followed the offering of the wave sheaf at Passover totaled forty-nine days; the fiftieth day that followed was designated as Pentecost (Leviticus 23:15-16).The seventy weeks of Daniel 9 were the equivalent of four hundred and ninety years in the prophetic scheme of that vision. The words seven and week cannot be separated. The unbroken continuity of the week has endured all centuries and all known calendars. It remains unchanged from the dawn of creation. The seventh day of the week on the Gregorian calendar in use today remains unchanged from the Julian calendar, which was calculated by the Greek astronomer Sosigenes in 46 B.C.The Catholic Encyclopedia, Vol. 3, p. 740, reads as follows under Chronology: "It is to be noted that in the Christian period, the order of days in the week has never been interrupted. Thus when Gregory XIII reformed the calendar in 1582, Thursday, 4 October was followed by Friday, 15 October. So in England, in 1752, Wednesday, 2 September, was followed by Thursday, 14 September." Notice how ten days were dropped from the calendar. One day was the fourth, and the very next day was the fifteenth of October. The fourth was Thursday, followed by Friday. Recalibrating the calendar did absolutely nothing to change the biblical Sabbath of the seven days or the succession of the days of the week.When our Lord Jesus Christ observed the Sabbath under the Julian calendar, He celebrated Sabbath on the day we call Saturday. The Saturday (seventh day of the week) on our Gregorian calendar is the same day of the week as it was in the days of Jesus Christ. The biblical Sabbath cannot be divorced from the seventh day of the week. All historical research confirms that the seventh day on the Gregorian calendar is the same day marked on the Julian calendar of 45 B.C.Jehovah marked and blessed the seventh day of the week as the Sabbath. No other day of the week can be called the Sabbath. The Muslims celebrate Sabbath on Friday, the sixth day of the week; the Roman Catholics and affiliated Protestant Churches originating from that church observe Sunday, the first day of the week, as the Sabbath. The early Christians continued to observe Sabbath on the seventh day of the week following the Resurrection and Ascension of Jesus Christ. The Council of Laodicea in 363 A.D. forbade Christians to observe the biblical Sabbath under penalty of death. While the Roman Western and the Greek Eastern Church transferred from the seventh to the first day of the week (Sunday), the faithful in Jesus Christ continued to observe the biblical Sabbath in unbroken succession throughout the centuries. Scattered, autonomous flocks of faithful Christians continued to observe the biblical Sabbath.Many people believe that any day of the week suffices for the Sabbath, as long as you rest one day in every seven. This is not what God commands. Following the exodus from Egypt, the Israelites quickly learned that the manna (their angel-food cake) did not appear on the seventh day of the week, the Biblical Sabbath. About this, we read: "And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none" (Exod. 16:27). In response to this disobedience, God said, "How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws" (verse 28).That same eternal God who speaks an unchanging Word of truth from one generation to another (Mal. 3:6; Heb. 13:8, Psa. 33:11) continues to bid us to keep the Biblical Sabbath of the seventh day of the week. Let us be faithful in our calling to do so!

Idaho's Greatest Son-A Klansman! By: James Rea

The Ku Klux Klan has had in its ranks some of the finest patriots ever produced in America. The examples such as Gutzon Borglum should serve as evidence to disprove Jewish lies and distortions about this great organization and its members. Vitriolic hatred and smears put out by the Jewish-liberal press continually are attempts to destroy patriotism and nationalism.Recently the Jews attempted to destroy the memory of Gutzom Borglum creator of Mount Rushmore. This man is probably the greatest sculptor the world has ever known. Borglum was a member of the National Executive Board of the Klan's "Imperial Kloncilium." Borglum was deeply patriotic and was commissioned by many cities and states to enshrine national heroes and epochs either in bronze or stone.Nothing could subdue this man's patriotic fervor. He carved whole mountains to preserve for antiquity the greatness that was America. The peak of his career is Mount Rushmore, located in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. Here he carved in a mountainside gigantic facial portraits of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and his personal friend, Teddy Roosevelt. These great sculptured faces are 60 to 75 feet high. This man, a gift from God to this country, gave us stone memorials of our great heritage, which millions of years from now will stand as a permanent record of the great achievements of the noble Aryan Race, long after the Jewish lies printed on cheap paper are ground to dust!All of Borglum's works had a deep patriotic significance. Some of his contributions to our American heritage include:1) A number of life-size, bronze statues commemorating General Sheridan's famous ride from Winchester, Virginia, to rouse his men who had been routed at Cedar Creek, to inspire them to fight again. This famous statue is on display in Washington, D.C. and many other cities in America.2) Many original, colossal heads of Lincoln created by Borglum are displayed all over America done in bronze or stone. The most famous one is on display in Washington, D.C. It is chiselled out of a three-foot square of Greek Pantillo marble, almost perfectly white. William Allen White, the great Christian newspaperman praised this work as the "Most marvelous piece of sculpture ever done in America."3) In 1911 Borglum created Lincoln Sitting on a Park Bench, which is on display in Newark, New Jersey. For years this wonderful replica has been a favorite of children. Ross Allen, president of the Security Bank of New York exclaimed, "Only the heartbeat and breath of life is lacking in your Lincoln."4) Helen C. Plane, president of the Daughters of the Confederacy, contacted Borglum in 1915. She wanted him to do a head of Robert E. Lee on Stone Mountain, Georgia. Borglum was escorted to this unique place and there he met that grand old Klan family, the Venables. Sam Venable and Borglum struck an immediate friendship. Sam's passion was a memorial to the Confederacy. As he talked to Borglum, who was staring at the great mountain edifice, he began to relay the valor and courage of the men who fought for what they believed in. Borglum, in true artistic insight, became inspired with what later became The Memorial to the Confederacy. Borglum became closely acquainted with the whole Venable family—Mother Venable, sisters Leila and Elizabeth, their husbands and children. While he worked, Borglum stayed at their home, "Mount Rest."Borglum's plan for the memorial was a procession of Confederate soldiers both on foot and horseback, some with guns. Robert E. Lee, "Stonewall" Jackson, and Jefferson Davis were to be in the center. To one side were to be hosts of Confederate infantry. Borglum required the whole mountainside for what he envisioned. Venable donated the entire mountainside to the Daughters of the Confederacy, and the work was begun. Interruptions such as WWI, monetary shortages, etc. continually delayed this project. The memorial was eventually completed by Borglum's son.5) In 1925 preliminary plans for Rushmore were prepared by Borglum. Through bureaucracy red tape, the 1929 crash, and spanning three presidents, with fanatical dedication in 1933, he completed the now famous Mount Rushmore Memorial. In the words of a close friend and associate, Mr. Ralph Lum, "It would be impossible for me to express the gratitude to God for this memorial to the people who founded this Republic and gave a new freedom to the world.Borglum's own words are even more moving; he said, "If I can memorialize for the ages a tiny bit of America's greatness by carving four of her greatest leaders who contributed so much, then I will have contributed something of value to the affairs of men. Nothing but the hand of God could have stopped me from completing this work."At the Black Hills dedication dignitaries from all over the world came to share in the ceremonies with the great Klan patriot Gutzon Borglum and his creaton Mount Rushmore. Daniel Beard, the beloved National Boy Scout Commissioner, was represented by Borglum. With 2000 Boy Scouts in the throng he dedicated the grand monument to America's young people, telling them that every young man should want to add something worthwhile to our national life. After that, ex-President, Calvin Coolidge complimented Borglum as having been a real inspiration to these boys.The great Klansman Sculptor Gutzon Borglum and the others he worked with represent the real greatness of America. Jewish liars and communists try to destroy the contributions of such as Borglum, Venable, Mrs. Platte, Teddy Roosevelt, Sidney Lanier, Charles B. Aycock, Alexander Stephans, Wilbur and Orville Wright, John Greenway, Major Gordon (Pawnee Bill) Lillie, and others too numerous to mention, who were all associates of Gutzon Borglum. Only time, wind, and weather will eventually erode Rushmore; no Jewish conspiracy ever will.Helen Keller, when she met him exclaimed, "Meeting you—is like a visit from the Gods!—In your statue of Thomas Paine you are preaching anew the liberty that shall reshape civilization."The American Klansman Gutzon Borglum died March 6, 1941. His memorial in Forest Lawn reads:"His birthplace was Idaho. California first taught him art. France gave him fame. England welcomed him. America called him home. His genius for the exquisite and for the colossal gave permanance to figures of legend and history. Nations, cities, and universities paid him tribute. As a Patriot he stripped corruption bare. As a statesman he toiled for the rights of man. At last he carved a mountainside. He made those mountains chant:"REMEMBER! THESE GIANT SOULS SET AMERICA FREE; HOLD FAST YOUR SACRED HERITAGE, AMERICANS!! REMEMBER! REMEMBER!"What could be more moving? Our Aryan Nation will be like Borglum's Mount Rushmore. Our descendants will know us through his divinely inspired hands.LIVE ON, OH KLANSMAN! LIVE ON!

Pro-Jewish Reagan By: James Combs

Ronald Reagan has been a show business "darling" for many years and was at one time president of the communist front, Screen Actors' Guild. In the 50's when the late Myron Fagan and other patriotic Hollywood people were fighting communism and trying to run the reds out of Hollywood, later Reagan did an about face from his former left wing stance and suddenly became a "right wing spokesman". In one of his books the late Mr. Fagan claims that Reagan's job was to falsely announce to the American public that all the reds had been run out of Hollywood. This would help stop further Congressional Investigations of the reds in Hollywood. What happened in fact was the reds in Hollywood had gone underground. They were writing scripts for major studios and TV under assumed names and the Jewish owners of the studios and TV networks were buying them at the going rate. The reds had just been driven underground and were continuing their subversion under assumed names. When Fagan and others tried to expose this situation and drive the reds from the underground and finish them off for once and for all—Ronald Reagan as a "patriot" assured Congress and Patriotic Americans that the reds were no longer being employed or used by movies and TV. With the help of Reagan the reds were allowed to continue their subversion and gradually come back out into the open. Many of the reds "driven out" of Hollywood in the 50's are now top actors, playwrights and directors for movies and TV.Reagan talks "Conservative" and acts quite the opposite. He knows the American people are fed up with the ERA, pro-Abortion and anti-Americanism. He is a professional actor and knows just what to say to get support of the White majority.Ronald Reagan is a feature writer for the anti-Christian, anti-Gentile Jewish Press. And as we go to press we have received a clipping from the Jewish Sentinel (5-1-80) with the headline, "Reagan names 11 Jews among his list of 68 policy advisors." The article goes on to say, "... 11 known Jews known for THEIR SUPPORT FOR A SECURE ISRAELI. None of those named, according to observers here, are known to be inimical to U.S. support for Israeli and many are strongly pro-Israeli."The fact is, that White Christian voters have NO choice in this election. We have no choice between commie Carter, commie Anderson and Zionist Reagan. Reagan recently showed his colors when he came out for full scale immigration of Cubans into the U.S.(The readers of The CDL Report can vote their own conscience in the coming election. We're just presenting the facts. As for myself, I will vote for some minor party candidate to show my disgust with the three "official" candidates running. And don't tell me my vote will be wasted—voting for any of the three "official" candidates IS a wasted vote.)In a short while, Americans will again be making their way to voting booths to choose the President of the United States.Those Christian-Whites who are aware of the evil which grips their land know what to expect. The "establishment" or "system" will offer the voters only candidates who are under its control. This means, of course, that it does not matter in the slightest whether a so-called "democrat" or "republican" is elected as President. He will only act as a figure-head national leader for the public and as a complete puppet for his master.Three things can ALWAYS be counted upon from the sold-out man who becomes President. "His" administration will actively undertake: 1) to institute more socialism into America's economy; 2) to bring our country deeper into a one-world order; and 3) to racially integrate the U.S. to an even greater extent. Each flunky put in the White House strives to improve upon these now-advanced efforts.Another foregone, predictable result of the selection of any modern-day President is the flood of Jewish "advisors" and administrators who will surround him. These Jews—invariably "liberal" and radical—really run this direly-sick and dying nation. They are the agents of the almighty Jewish financial figures who fanatically aspire to rule the world.If a skeptic doubts these conclusions, then let him deny them with evidence! Is there an iota of proof that socialism, internationalism and race-mixing have not been devotedly followed by all Presidents since at least Franklin Roosevelt? Is it not peculiar that at least one of them failed to break the twisted pattern? Can a skeptic refute that these Presidents—"democrat" or "republican"—have had a disproportionate array of Jews around them and "their" administrations? And, evidence is abundant that Jewry has created and often openly led every movement to destroy nationalism and bring about world government!So, in November, 1980, the public will dutifully and blindly put yet another traitor to Christian-White interests into the Presidency.As this is written, it seems that the two most likely representatives of the major political parties will be Jimmy Carter for the "democrats" and Ronald Reagan for the "republicans." Now, only an utter dullard is unfamiliar with the economic and diplomatic disasters which have already occurred under Carter. Also, after the multiple number of colored he has been photographed kissing and putting into most-responsible government offices, only the same idiot is not aware of Carter's obsession with race-mixing. In short, his actions and beliefs are (or should be) well known. The man is a psychopathic personality who has shown he is quite dedicated to the ruination of his own race and nation.But, what about Reagan? How well known are his positions and actions? Very few Americans really know anything about the likely republican Presidential candidate.Ronald Reagan has worked for the Jews most of his life. His basic profession is acting, and his initial fame (and considerable wealth) were obtained in the movies. Jews have long owned the film industry and the people in it. If you do not at least pretend to worship them and their "liberal" philosophies, you do not work in the cinema or on the stage. Thus, it can safely be said that Mr. Reagan has long known and shown obedience to Jewry.When extreme social radicalism came to the surface two decades ago, the Jews developed "conservative" figures for Christian-Whites to lean upon. This gave our people the false security that their points of view and interests still had some representation. Christian-Whites were thus kept within the now farcical "democratic process." Had there not been at least a few (phony) "spokesman" for them on the scene, they might have lost hope with the "process." In bitterness and disillusionment, they might have risen up in rebellion. Therefore, con-men as Reagan, acting as Judas goats, were brought into action by Jewry to keep our kindred "in line."Apart from the "conservative" promises and empty words of Ronald Reagan, we have only his record as Governor of California (1967-1975) by which to judge the man. By looking at what he did and advocated as governor, we can get a very good idea of what he would do as President. Let us review that record.On the most important issue of all, racial integration, Reagan is 100 percent behind it. Though other matters—as economics—are vital, they take a rear-seat to the mixing of colored races with ours. Were our people thoroughly "integrated," there would not be any reversal of it; other Jewish programs-for-decay could be eventually overcome.When "our" government started forcing race-mixing upon us in the 1960's, Reagan repeatedly stated he—as an elected official—would use troops, if need be, to bring about "civil rights" for the colored (Sacramento Bee, October 21, 1965, as reported in Kent H. Steffgen's book, The Counterfeit Candidate, National Issues, 1976, Page iii and 43). As governor, he signed into law racial integration measures which were highly in the worst interests of Whites, as the (William) Bagley Bill which "... went beyond most other forced busing bills in the nation" (Steffgen, p. 42). Negroes and other colored, were placed into State government offices by Reagan, an innovative move for California. As Kent Steffen points out (p. 47), Governor Reagan signed legislation which established State control of private schools. This further handicapped Whites in trying to avoid having their children integrated. As Reagan also backed "open housing" (Steffgen, p. 1), most Whites could not residentially escape the colored either.Since "equality" has been brought to America by the manipulation of jewry, crime (among other things) has gotten almost out of control. To make it "open season" on Whites, "liberals" as Reagan have tried to take our guns from us, making us more helpless to resist tyranny. He passed Califronia's first gun control measure (Steffgen, p. 39).Steffgen, on the same page of his book, also disclosed that as Reagan left office crime had more than doubled in California (475,835 major crimes in 1966 and 714,688 by 1973). Colored committed the majority of these. Thanks to the "liberal" government of Reagan, the State's prison population declined during the first five years of office from 27,000 to 19,000. When he left office, it had risen back to 24,000 (Time, April 28, 1980, p. 24). So much for his heralded "anti-crime" stance!Earlier this year, Reagan and his wife, Nancy, felt compelled to profusely apologize after she inadvertently exclaimed how elated she was at seeing so many "beautiful White people" at a rally in Rosemont, Illinois. She may have sincerely meant what she said. The Reagans are undoubtedly like most sold-out politicians and are private racists. But, they are hypocrites in public life, selling out their own race for Jewish social-political aims and for their own selfish opportunistic gains.Mr. Steffgen revealed Reagan's position on other important issues. He opposed right-to-work legislation, wanted "detente" with the Reds, sought the closed union shop, insulted our English language heritage by supporting bi-lingualism in education, and was for the Equal Rights Amendment (pp. 43-47). He also "... signed the first sex education bill (in California) as soon as he entered office" (p. 44).Reagan nationalized ¼ of the total land area of California and plainly sought to undermine private property ownership (p. 1). With his aid, socialized medicine increased 100 percent in the State (pp. 1 and 41). He also legalized abortions, thereupon, rose from 518 in 1967 to more than 600,000 in the period 1968 to 1974. Of these 200,000 were financed by public funds (Time, April 28, 1980, p. 24)."Reagan became the biggest spender of any State governor in U.S. history. In eight years (of his terms), spending rose from $4.6 billion to $10.2 billion" (Steffgen, p. 52).Welfare costs, alone, skyrocketed. "... the total number of recipients on welfare in California nearly doubled (and cost tripled) during the Reagan years while the State's population growth rate decreased from 3 percent to 1 percent per year" (Memphis Commercial Appeal, March 24, 1980, p. 7)."Instead of cutting taxes (as promised), he solved the budget deficit with the largest tax increase in California's history; a $billion jolt". When he left office 8 years later, $21 billion had been added to the State's tax revenues. State income tax rose from a maximum 7 percent to 11 percent for individuals and from 5.5 percent to 9 percent for corporations. The State sales tax went from 4 percent to 6 percent. In 1971, Reagan signed a tax-withholding law into effect (after having sworn he would not). The annual budget grew from $240 million to $509 million in his 8 years! (Time, pp. 24-25).He did (as promised) rebate $5.7 billion of the fortune raised by taxes; but, he offset this by raising taxes for a total of $21.3 billion during his tenure (Memphis Commercial Appeal, p. 7). In short, while "giving" with the right hand, he was 4 times again "taking" with the left one! In the process, he soaked the middle-class, viciously so. Just what one would expect from a hard-core radical.You can say, as Kent Steffgen did, that Reagan "... gave California the largest dose of big government and suppression of the private sector in the State's history" (p. 29).As news reporter Michael Calabrese stated in the Commercial Appeal article ("Reagan Record Not So Right"): "He was neither half as bad as liberals fret, nor a quarter as good as conservatives believe" (p. 7).And, the Time article said of him: "... his conservative bark often carried (as governor) little bite when he tackled the practical problems of governing" (p. 24). Were he to become President, his present "patriotic" words would be replaced with "liberal"-leftist action!Jews (who at high level own Reagan) even make little-publicized and favorable comments about him. For instance, Shirley Wechsler of Los Angeles, national vice president of the revolutionary Americans for Democratic Action, said: "We got a better hearing from Reagan—and a better deal—than we get from Jerry Brown" (Time, p. 25). Brown is as Red as a politician can be and not be operating out of the Kremlin!Despite Reagan's demonstrated subversive record as governor—ignorant Whites will vote for him. He "... will use (them) to get elected, appoint liberals and Keynesians and radicals throughout his administration, and carry the nation deeper into the total, state, all in the name of conservatism" (Steffgen, p. 76). He will say anything to con gullible Whites, but his actions will be something else. Patriots are fooling themselves if they feel his being President would bring in at least some conservatism.So, there you have it. Another "fine" choice for President! Actually, Carter and Reagan are even more alike. It is really two phony "democrats" ostensibly vying with one another. "My views haven't changed an awful lot since I was a Democrat" (Reagan on Meet the Press, NBC, January 15, 1967). But, were they both "republicans," it would not make a bit of difference. Jewry would possess their very souls all the same. And, we Christian-Whites would continue to see our race and nation decline!

Theocracy By: Richard Kelly Hoskins

Definition of Theocracy

Theocracy—a state ruled by God.Noah Webster's 1st Edition, 1828 defines theocracy in the following manner:"THEOCRACY: Government of a state by the immediate direction of God; or state thus governed. Of this species the Israelites furnish an illustrious example. The theocracy lasted until the time of Saul."The Oxford American Dictionary, 1980 defines theocracy:"THEOCRACY: 1. A form of government by God or a god directly, or through a priestly order. 2. A state having this form of government."

All States Are Theocracies

All rulers claim that they follow the dictates of a power or an intelligence greater than their own, and, that they and the state are merely agents of this greater power. If this defines a god—even communist states bow to the all powerful intellectual god of Marxism/Leninism.

Three Western Theocracies

Traditionally, Western governments have claimed that their power to rule is granted by the Christian God. This power—this will of God—is transmitted to those being ruled in three distinctly different manners by three distinctly different groups—each claiming this right from God. These are:1. Theocracy by priests2. Theocracy by the individual3. Theocracy by the state.

1. Theocracy by Priests

The little known independent episcopal[1] Hindu priesthood of India is the most powerful example of a self-perpetuating priestly theocracy.The Roman Catholic Church in the West is the best known example of a self-perpetuating priestly theocracy.The next best-known example of a self-perpetuating priestly theocracy is the Anglican Church of England, an offshoot of the Catholic Church.Priest and state combine in an episcopacy that rules from the top down, selecting its own relatively ideologically sound replacements. Like the others, Anglican priests may be individually poor, but the wealth of the Anglican Church makes it a major factor in international trade and finance.There is a tacit understanding between the three major groups.[2] (The best-known example of American Christianity is the Judeo-Christianity of the televangelists. It is a missionary outreach of another and as such has no real power except from its propaganda.)

2. Theocracy by the Individual

The Roman Catholic Church ruled Europe for a millenium and a half it was corrupt and tyrannical. Certain Roman Catholic priests started a reform movement called the "Reformation." The leaders of the Reformation placed their new movement under the protection of local rulers who were looking for an excuse not to forward their tax and tithe collections to Rome.Unlike the Roman Catholic Church where only priests were allowed to read Holy Scripture, the Reformation encouraged all to study God's WORD, claiming the priesthood of the individual: "Jesus Christ ... hath made us kings and priests." Rev 1:5-6. These new priests read secrets long concealed and one of the first things they learned was the following:"And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, say ... There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, ... they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; ... Her priests have violated my law, ... they have put no difference between the holy and the profane, neither have they showed difference between the unclean and the clean ... and I am profaned among them. Her princes ... are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain." Ezek. 22:23-27.This scripture was first used against the priests of the Catholic Church, and next against the kings employed by them. But, as knowledge of the Scriptures spread it was taken to mean a close watch should be kept on ANY professional priesthood and ANY state that attempted to subvert God's WORD—Protestant or Catholic.The former catholic Priests who were the leaders of the Reformation merely attempted to reform the Catholic Church—to reform the existing organized religion. Growing knowledge of the Scriptures drastically expanded this vision as the people learned the requirements of the WORD and cast about for a way to put God's Commands into action. Banding together, they went far beyond what the reformers intended.

The Revolution

The Reformation turned into a revolution as the realization dawned that each Christian had been appointed king and priest and was responsible individually to God. These new-found priests determined to do all that Scripture required. They took and divided the land that had been taken from the people by both the Church and the kings.[3] They banned taxes since taxes were forbidden[4] and they quickly disobeyed kings who disobeyed God's Commands,[5] and when the kings failed to punish transgressors of the Law—the people did it themselves[6] in order to avoid God's punishment that falls on all who fail to obey the Law.[7]

Reaction of Establishment Kings & Priests

The Kings of northern Europe, wishing to keep for themselves the lands and taxing powers they held from the Catholic Church, had an economic incentive to support the original Reformation. When the people went beyond and began seizing the lands claimed by them and dividing them and refusing to pay taxes—the kings became the enemies of the people.[8] To regain these lands and rents these Protestant kings turned on their former Protestant subjects and slaught-ered them by the tens of thousands to prevent their setting up a theocracy of the people. The revolution died in a river of blood. Except for a flicker that has continued to this day—the flame of the Reformation died.[9] The Catholic Church looked on. As soon as it had beaten back the Turk invasion of Austria, it called for a fresh crusade to reclaim its lost lands and revenues now in the hands of Protestant kings. Its Catholic kings obediently marched against the northern Protestant Kings launching the Thirty Years War that left parts if Germany with only 10% of its former population. Millions had died.

3. Theocracy by the State

Both Protestant and Catholic kings learned a great lesson from the Reformation. The first lesson was: "keep religion on a tight leash." This means both the presbytery Protestant revolutionaries trying to create God's theocracy here on earth, and the Catholic Church trying to regain its lands and taxes. Both were a danger. The Protestant revolutionaries had taken the kings' land and taxes—and the Catholic Church had caused a war between the Catholic and Protestant kings that almost killed every second person in Europe, making it almost worthless for business.[10]With this threat hanging over the heads of both Protestant and Catholic kings, the kings developed a simple method to control religion and use it to bless their own operation. They turned organized religion into a state religion—a state theocracy. The Lutheran religion became a state religion in north Europe, and the Catholic religion and its off-shoots became a state religion in south Europe and elsewhere.The local king simply appointed the head of the local religion. Those appointed were politically reliable. The result was that the state supported the church and the church supported the state. In this manner this state theocracy blessed everything the state did and the state gave religion economic advantages such as tax exemption. The state theocracy was set up to bless that which God cursed—and it did. State theocracies quickly multiplied.The King of England, holding his realm en fief from the Pope, announced that from now on he, not the Pope, was God's chosen representative on earth and from then on he(she) was going to appoint the leaders of his own personal Anglican Church and he did. His appiontees were very loyal.The kings and governments of the German and Scandinavian states appointed leaders of their own Lutheran Churches. They, too, were very loyal to the one who appointed them.In spite of vehement denials from the vatican, the kings of Catholic nations, with few exceptions, managed to have veto privilege in the selection of Catholic bishops appointed to head their own national Catholic Churches. These bishops were expected to side with the king against the Vatican itself, and they usually did.As a consequence of this loss of political power to its hired kings, the Vatican's main effort has been "mission work" with its Jesuit schools manufacturing "fanatics" who quickly become the usual nominal Catholics upon graduation. The visible effort has been "show-business" and the promotion of "Dharma" necessary for the furtherance of its vast business operations.

Judeo-Christian Religion

The Jews have occupied a special protected place in the West. In addition to being the international trader transporting goods from East to West, they were also required to do those things that Western Christians could not do—such as lending money at usury and collecting taxes.As strangers, they were friendless in Christian lands and became servants of the Catholic Church which numbered them and farmed them out to its hired kings. Constantly abused and railed at, the Jews were always carefully protected from real harm—they were too valuable.The Crusades and the Reformation, times of death and destruction arising from religious differences, caused a reaction against the Jews that nearly caused them to be expelled from the West. In the years following, they were largely left out of governing and religious councils of the West. This was serious, because international traders must have agreements with both kings and priests for their personal safety and the safety of their goods. This was especially true in America, since the people were religious and the WORD that they followed caused Christian America to continuously verge on the outright rejection of both the international trader and his trade. The Jew could never be sure if or when he and his goods would be banned entirely.[11]

A New Religion

The solution decided upon was simple. It was to insert "Dharma" into existing evangelical Christianity without changing anything else.[12] Dharma neutralizes all religions—including Christianity. Almost overnight Christianity was made harmless to the alien and his trade. TV's Dharmatized Christianity appeared in the households of almost every American family. Overnight it became America's religion. Billy Graham was chosen "pope" of evangelical Protestant Christianity and he made regular visits to the White House to bless all that was going on.

Today's State

The government of every modern-day Saxon state is hand picked by the ITC media. The media managers select candidates and publicize them, and ignore all others. People vote for candidates they know. The only ones they know are the ones the media tells them about. These ITC selected political agents then take office to protect the cartel and its agents from irate citizens.All people follow their gods. The Saxons' God is the WORD. The WORD excludes strangers and their goods. The ITC media owners replaced watchmen of the WORD with their own hand selected televangelists. To keep their jobs, the televangelists act as a state religion and bless that which God curses. The loyalty of the rest of organized religion is assured by 501(c)3 tax exemptions granted by ITC office holders (kings) put in office by the media owners.

The Logical Sequence

Once one has accepted the fact that the media owners are the ones who actually hand pick both government and god for the Christian West, the next question arises—WHO owns the media that has done these things?We were told that Robert Maxwell was the most powerful man in Europe, the owner of newspaper, radio and TV chains. What was not told us was the fact that he did not own these companies, he was only managing them. The media also reported the allegation, that he was also skimming from the companies he managed and as a result was found floating in the Atlantic. When this happened, the banks descended on his estate to claim what was theirs. Thus, Robert Maxwell's untimely death revealed that the banks were the real owners of his media empire.Next question—who owns the banks? The media tells us that "it is the people who are the bank stockholders." However, we remember that in 1973 when a number of Swiss banks went into default it was revealed that they were owned by the Vatican. That could not be, because usury is forbidden to Christians! The Catholic Church has written volumes against usury.[13] Yet, there it was. Since then there have been other Catholic Church bank defaults—big, expensive ones—banks that no one knew were owned by the Catholic Church. How many other banks owned by the Catholic Church have NOT defaulted? Perhaps ninety-nine percent haven't.The newspapers reported that the Queen of Britain was caught in the closings of a major US midwest bank and more recently in the default of Baring Bank. This is more than a "human interest" story. The Queen of Britain is not only a Queen, she is head of the Anglican Church and God's representative on earth. Thus, the Anglican Church is also up to its ears in usury.[14]How many other major factors are in the usury business? We know that usury banking originated in India. We know that many offshore banks in the Caribbean are staffed by Indians and that they are now showing up in force in financial institutions all over Wall Street. Why are they there? To keep tab on their banking interests? It might be safe to surmise that in addition to the Catholic Church and Anglican Church, the Brahman priesthood in India continues to occupy a substantial place in usury banking.We are told that the Jews are the usurers—the Rothschilds and all the rest. I'm not convinced that the Jews are any more than "the ones who manage for others." We are regaled with stories of multi-billionare Jews who made their start a few decades ago, penniless, and by the dent of hard work, saving their pennies, etc., have become billionaires. This is supposed to explain how they accumulated their great wealth. This is the story handed out about Rupert Murdoch, the current media mogul of Australia and the United States. Why is he different from Robert Maxwell? Which is easier—to save your pennies and become a billionaire—or to be given a few billion to manage?Let's look at another case—Henry Ford. He wasn't a Jew—he was a Catholic. He was presented to the world as an Anti-Semitic right-winger, a car manufacturer who suddenly became enormously successful and made billions. This right wing anti-semite left his money to a left-wing pro-semite communist-leaning trust—the "Ford Fund For The Republic." Do you beliecve that a smart fellow like Henry Ford would do something stupid like that with his own money? Somebody else's money perhaps—but his own? Could Ford have been a right wing conservative all his life and then leave his considerable wealth in trust for left-wing causes? It would be more believable if Henry Ford was, like Robert Maxwell, a "money manager" who had no say over how the money he managed was to be used after his death. This begs another question—if Henry Ford was a money manager—a money manager for whom?


There are things that we do know. We know that Christians are leaving organized religion in droves. They sense a wolf in sheep's clothing. Logic reveals that both our government and our religion have been created for us by the media. Maxwell's untimely death revealed to us that these same media are owned by the banks. Catholic and Protestant bank failures have shown us that organized religion is up to its ears in bank ownership and the practice of "usury." The Scriptures teach us that usury is grouped along with murder.[15] This means that these people are capable of anything—ANYTHING! The Anglican Protestants saw nothing wrong with British death camps in South Africa nor the slaughter of congregations meeting in fields and woods of Scotland. The Catholic Church saw nothing wrong in the 1641 slaughter of almost half the non-Catholic population of Northern Ireland. All together these things explain what the prophets knew from the beginning:"We wrestle not against flesh and blood—but against principalities[16]—against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world[17]—against spiritual wickedness in high places." Eph. 6:12[18]These same Scriptures confirm who started the "round robin" in the beginning and who keeps turning it today. It is called "Babylon." The Scriptures say that Babylon is run by the merchants of the international trade cartel for their insatiable love of money.[19] The Scriptures say this about them: "A merchant shall hardly keep himself from doing wrong." Ecclesiasticus 26:29. The Scriptures also tell us the end of the story: "Babylon ... the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies." Rev 18:2-3; "The kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning." Rev 18:9; "And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandize anymore." Rev 18:11; "Alas, that great city wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness." Rev 18:19; "Babylon ... for thy merchants were the great men of the earth." Rev 18:21,23.

A Christmas Story

Yes, Virginia—there is a theocracy. Today it is the false theocracy of the priest and state—creations of the merchants' trade cartel. Tomorrow, things will be different, the theocracy will be the theocracy of God the WORD.

The Christian Knight: A short guide for the Christian Knight in the modern age By: Blue Tunic Ministry of Christ

The Christian Knight

A brief guide to the Christian Knight in the modern age

Author's Note:
This tract may and is encouraged to be freely distributed to all true Christian Patriots of the cause of Christendom.

The Knight

The term "Knight" as described in this article can be defined by the following; "A Christian male whom by fraternal ritual or by personal prayer between himself and his creator hath made an oath to live his life in that of Christian Chivalry and Service to his God and the Kingdom of Jesus Christ"

With this it is the Author's intention to provide such person a short treatise or guide in order to aid him in his path he has chosen for himself. 

"Let Me Say That The Cross Is An Inspiration, A Sign Of The Christian Religion, A Symbol Of Faith, Hope And Love. We Do Not Burn But Light The Cross To Signify That Christ Is The Light Of The World And That His Light Destroys Darkness. Fire Purifies Gold, Silver and Precious Stones. It Destroys Wood, Stubble And Hay ..., So By The Cross We Mean To Burn Our Virtues From Within. In The Fiery Cross We Glory, 'Neath It's Sacred Glow My Oath Was Made. It Shall Ever Live In Song And Story, I Swear Its Light Shall Never Fade. God Give Us Men, Tall Sun Crowned Men Who Will Not Flinch At Dukty And Will Not Lie .... God Give Us Men. Amen."


The Christian religion is one of humility.  One must completely humble themselves to the Holy Ghost. Christ states in Matthew that the greatest commandment is "To love the Lord Your God with all of your heart, all of your soul, and all of your mind. " Second to ths is loving your neighbor as yourself.  Upon these two principles is the foundation of all Law and the path of Christ.  

The knight has taken upon himself the life of service to His God, his Israelite Kinsmen, and his Kingdom. With this he attains a fanatical outlook upon these principles. This truth is to be acknowledged but never used to instill a superiority complex. One should look upon his fellow Israelites with complete compassion and humility. For the Knight musnt think too highly of himself (Romans 12:3) he must understand that his path he has taken upon himself is just but one function in the body of Christ. 

The Glory of The Knight

The Glory of the Knight is to serve. He does not seek acknowledgement nor recognition to his service. More often times than not one would need to conceal his service as much as humanly possible. 
He understands the unique duty he has been called for. He will stop and nothing to protect and defend the weak, the innocent,  the children, and the Church.

*The Church is not a reference to a building.  Rather, the spiritual "Church" Christ has established. 

The Knight,  The Fanatic

For one to truly be a Knight he must be Fanatical in his beliefs.  The terms fanatic and fanaticism have been demonized in our present society. A fanatic is simply one whom is so strong in his belief that he will stop at nothing to defend his beliefs. There are all sorts of fanatics. It can usually be found in the government sector by the lying thieving,  murderous regimes we live under. The type of fanaticism that must be possessed by the Knight is one that is described in the scriptures.  He must be a man who would die rather than submit to the Satanic forces of this world. 

His heart and soul must burn with the righteous rage of Phineas when he sees the atrocities committed against his people.  
He must hate those with an unyielding hatred which blaspheme and hate his God and those who equally yoke themselves with the same.
For further information read Numbers 25, I&II Samuel, Judges, and the entire Gospels.

"Only the fool ignores the Phineas Priest of God!"

Bible Law on Money By: Sheldon Emry

Protestant Reformer SaysUsurers Should Be HangedQuotation from Martin Luther, Leader of the Great German Christian Reformation of the 1500’s — The great German Religious Leader of the Reformation of the 15th and 16th centuries was outspoken in his doctrine on Scriptural teachings and truth. Here is what he said in regard to usury:“The Heathen, out of natural reason and understanding were able to render an account that an Usurer is a threefold thief and murderer. But we that are Christians hold them in such honor and esteem that in a manner (for money's sake) we adore and worship them; no regard is had, what scorn and derision thereby we procure to the name of a Christian and to Christ Himself. For although we were not Christians, yet natural sense and reason tells us (as well as the Heathen) that an Usurer is a murderer: for who so sucks the maintenance of another, the same not only robs and steals, but also (so much as in him lies) he commits even as great a murder as he that starves and utterly destroys one. This does an usurer, and in the meantime sits in his chair, whereas he justly ought to hang on the Gallows, and he devoured by so manv Ravens as he has stolen shillings, if otherwise so much flesh were on him that so many Ravens might be able to piece it and to part it out. Cato, the Usurer's enemy, said: 'Little thieves lie stocked, ironed in Prisons, but great Thieves ride prancing in silks and chains of gold,' but so much as we neither punish nor strive against them, therefore without all doubt in the end we together with the Usurers shall pay sweetly for it.”(From “Colloquia Mensalia Martini Lutheri” printed in 1652.)Why did this Great Christian say that? Read on:The following pages are from a book by Pastor Sheldon Emry of Phoenix, Arizona. The book is now out of print.God’s Law On UsuryIn the Bible, following the Ten Commandments, God gave Moses the several hundred Commandments, Statutes and Judgments which make up God's Law for Government and for Individuals. In Exodus 22, as God exhorted Israel about the personal relationship of people, He told them not to oppress any stranger or afflict any widow or fatherless child (see v. 21 and 22) and then He speaks on lending money: “If thou lend money to any of My people that is poor by thee, thou shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him usury” (v. 25). This is expanded in Leviticus 25: 35-37: “And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with (by) thee, then shalt thou relieve (help) him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee. Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee. Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals for increase.”In Deuteronomy 23, God says He will bless them if they do not charge usury: “Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury: Unto a stranger (aliens) thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: That the Lord thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it.” v. 19-20.Psalm 15 asks: “Lord, who shall be in Thy Tabernacle? Who shall dwell in Thy Holy Hill?” Part of the answer: “He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent.”Jeremiah declared his righteousness by saying he had never charged usury. Jeremiah 15:10. Ezekiel said if a man did that which is lawful and right he would not charge usury Ezekiel 18:8 and declares of the usurer: “he shall not live, he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die” (v. 13.) Just imagine, in God's Word, the death penalty for lending money at interest, yet today there is hardly a Christian Church in the Nation that condemns the taking of this unjust gain!God told Israel in old Canaanland that He would “scatter thee among the heathen, and disperse thee in the countries”, and one of the reasons was: “In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken usury and increase, and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbors by extortion, and hast forgotten Me, saith the Lord God”; Ezekiel 22: 12-15. That sounds like the United States of America!One of the most tragic errors taught from today's Christian pulpits is that these Laws are no longer in effect. But Jesus Christ said: “Think not that I am come to destroy the Law, or the Prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill” Matthew 5:17. From this and from other Scriptures we know He came to “put My Laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts” Hebrews 8:10. In Luke 6, He specifically told His followers they were not to lend for reward (gain) but to be merciful vs. 34-36. Jesus said: “If ye love Me, keep My Commandments”, John 14:15. In 1 John 2:4 it is written: “He that saith, I know Him, and keepth not His Commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.”Martin Luther, the great light of the Reformation in Europe and others of his day, taught no such nonsense that God's Laws were not to be obeyed. He compared the taking of usury with theft and murder, as the Scripture does. From the Reformation era to within the last 100 years many Christian denominations refused Church membership to anyone who loaned money at interest! Today, churches not only condone this ungodly evil, but practice it, themselves. Our entire financial system is based and established on the disobedience of these Commandments of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our ministers tell us we need not obey those Commandments, and the result is debt-usury-bondage for our People and the threatened destruction of our Nation.During England's several hundred years' march towards personal liberty, the loaning of money at interest was declared illegal by the Kings. In the 10th century usurers had their land forfeited to the Crown, In the 11th century, in addition, the usurer was declared an outlaw and was banished from England. Up through the 15th century, the punishment varied from forfeiture of all property to the putting to death of lenders of money at interest.By the 18th century, the turning away from Biblical Law led to the establishment of interest charges as a legal claim, and by the 19th century England had passed into the control of the Bankers. 800 years of upward struggle and thrust to personal liberty and National prosperity has been, all but, destroyed in the last 100 years by Banker's wars, usury and taxes.America is following in England's footsteps because She disobeyed God's Law on interest! Our Bankers' dictatorship would collapse without their ungodly usury; yet, American ministers are silent on this iniquity.“There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof . . . her priests have violated My Law, and have profaned Mine Holy Things; they have put no difference between the Holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between unclean and the clean.” Ezekiel 22: 25-26. They do not show the People right from wrong!On DebtAlthough usury is forbidden, God's Law commands that we loan to a brother who needs money or food or clothing, etc. (Deut. 15:7-10), but to prevent unpayable debts from accumulating at the year of the Sabbath, every seventh year; any balance owing then was to be canceled and forgiven. This was not seven years after the origination of the debt, but at the National cycle of seven years, so that all debts in the Nation would be canceled the same year.Deuteronomy 15 gives the Law: “At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release. And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that lendeth ought unto his neighbor shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbor, or of his brother; because it is called the Lord's release. Of a foreigner (alien) thou mayest exact it again; but that which is thine with thy brother thine hand shall release; Save when (to the end that) there shall be no poor among you; for the Lord shall greatly bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it.” vs. 1-4.God's Law is quite specific and easy to understand. It includes a promise of blessing, even to the elimination of poverty among us, if we but obey — which we have not done. There is, also, a further release every 49 years, called the year of jubile (jubilee) in Leviticus 25, which we will discuss in detail — presently in the next Chapter. On Gold And SilverMany who recognize the evil of usury (interest) still assume that money should be composed of valuable metal and redeemable by some such precious material as gold and silver. As we have seen, however, it is the stability of the Government and the correct volume of currency available which gives value to money, not some arbitrary amount of metal.The Bible has much to say about gold, and it is mostly bad. The reign of King Solomon will give us a good example. Scripture and history indicate that his empire. was the most peaceful and prosperous of that time and perhaps of all recorded history. Of gold and silver in his kingdom, the Scripture records: “And the king made silver and gold at Jerusalem as plenteous as stones. . .” 2 Chronicles, 1:15. Their value would, therefore, have been the same as stones, and certainly not used for the “backing” of money.The vision of the beast empire which Daniel saw, had a head of gold. (Daniel 2.) Heathen gods are often represented by gold. Speaking of the end of the Age, Ezekiel said: “They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord. . . because it (the gold and silver) is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.” Ezekel 7:19.The control of the gold supply of the world, by the Bankers, has been used by them to fluctuate and to control the currencies of all the world's governments, not for the good of the People, but for the enrichment of the Bankers. Wise King Solomon did exactly the opposite.A historical example of the inability of gold and silver to enrich a nation, is Spain. From the 16th to the 18th centurySpain attempted to enrich herself by bringing tons of precious metals from the New World. While she did that, America developed her production of real wealth through manufacturing and farming. By 1900 Spain had lost or sold her empire, and America was the fastest growing Nation in wealth and power in the world.Gold and silver as wealth is an illusion. Food and products that people need and enjoy are true material wealth.Yet, men are still deceived by the artificial price placed on gold and silver by the Bankers. If the Spanish king had considered gold and silver “as stones” — worthless — his people would have turned to the production of real wealth and Spain would have flourished.America did have an early experience with gold. A small quantity was found at Jamestown, shortly after the colony began, and Captain John Smith wrote later that the men neglected their work to search for gold, and the colony almost-perished of famine the next winter. God seems to have blessed America with a LACK of gold, and its scarcity has had little effect on our production of food and real wealth. Christian teachings and God's blessings have provided American prosperity, not gold. Russia and India have large per capita supplies of gold, again providing nothing toward national prosperity.On Stable MoneyOur God is a righteous God; and since adequate and stable money is so necessary to peace and order, it would be expected that His Law would have something to say about it, and it does. “Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight or in measure. Just balances, just weights. . . shall ye have: I am the Lord your God.” Leviticus 19:35-36; Deuteronomy 25:13-16.It is understood that these standards of measurement are to be established by the Government for all People. We do that with the inch, foot, pint, bushel, pound, etc. We even establish by law, grades of purity for food, fiber, metals, medicine, etc. This is not done by a private corporation, since we realize that they could, then, vary the value to their own benefit. Nevertheless, we allow a private corporation, the Federal Reserve Banks, to establish and control the measurement of our purchasing power-our money! This they fluctuate in value to their own benefit. They are described in the vision in Amos 8: “Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail, Saying: when will the new month be gone, that we may sell corn? and the Sabbath, that we may set forth wheat. . . ?” And how do they sell and trade? With equity and justice? No! “Making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit! that we may buy the poor for silver (control them with “money”), and the needy for a pair of shoes: yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat”? Amos 8:4-6.Yes, with their fluctuating money and their planned inflation, they buy control of the nations, place the poor and the needy into bondage to themselves, and end up selling us contaminated food and shoddy merchandise! The Book of Proverbs calls false balances and unjust measures an “abomination” to the Lord. Proverbs 11: 1-16: 11-20: 10, 23.We have already read the prophecy of Micah 6, where God calls this Banker-created money “the scant measure,” or the measure of scarcity. And He refers to their “wicked balances” and “deceitful weights,” Since our weights and measures of other things have been established for hundreds of years, and have not been changed, the Scripture is obviously-referring to money manipulation.We are not suffering from a varying inch, foot, mile or pound, but from a “wicked” and “deceitful” system of money control.Micah proceeds to tell of the injustices, the chaos and rebellion, even of the children against their parents, as a result of unjust money manipulation. But, praise ye the Lord, he follows it immediately, (Ch. 7) with the promise “that God will deliver.” “According to the days of thy coming out of the land of Egypt will I shew, unto him marvelous things.” (v. 15). The Exodus from Egypt was a deliverance of our ancestors from bondage, just as this time it will he of Christian Israel in America. “He will turn again, He will have compassion on us; He will subdue our iniquities. . . thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.” Micah 7:19-20.That “mercy” is what Zacharias referred to when he prophesied of Jesus Christ: “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for He hath visited and redeemed His people. . . that we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us; to perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember His holy covenant; the oath which He sware to our father Abraham, that He would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve Him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before Him, all the days of our life.” Luke 1:68-75.America cannot serve the Lord, while we remain in debt bondage and servitude to the Bankers' Mammon.Jesus Christ said: “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and Mammon.” Luke 16: 13Let us now turn our thoughts to that day of deliverance which may be almost at hand.All Debts Cancelled— Year Of Jubilee —As we have pointed out in Chapter 9, God's Law directs that all outstanding debts, which a debtor is unable to pay, are to be canceled and forgotten at the end of every seven years. Then, at the end of every 49 years there is to be a further release, in that all properties, which may have been lost to others, are to be returned to their rightful owners. Since this would take considerable time to accomplish, God set aside the entire year, the,.50th year, and this was called The Year of Jubile (Jubilee). You can read it in Leviticus 25, as follows:“And thou shalt number seven Sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.” Vs: 8-10For 45 more verses, God's Law prescribes how this is to be done. The important point for our purposes here is that this is a year of cancellation of all debts and the return of all foreclosed properties to the rightful owners. This is what can, what must, and what will be done in America.Many people, and not necessarily wealthy people, express fear that the economy would be upset by disrupting the present system. Such fears are not justified.In the first place, the present evil system is obviously-leading us into National anarchy, widespread poverty, and the rulership of the Nation by wicked men. In the second place, it is giving our enemies the image that our position is helpless. What could possibly be more cataclysmic than what lies ahead of us, if we continue on this same road?Thirdly, debts, such as mortgages on homes, farms, businesses, automobile loans, the Federal Debt and all State and Local Bonded Debts are all iIlegal under God's Law; and they have been obtained by the money-lenders through violations of the law and Constitution of the U.S.A., as we have reported, and they must be cancelled. God's Laws, Christian honesty,justice and integrity and the Nation's salvation require that they be cancelled.Fourthly, the cancellation of such fraudulent debts and the declaration by the Court that Federal Reserve money, and any other Bank's money, is illegal and worthless (two steps which we have indicated have already been taken by Court Decisions) will make the issuance of an adequate supply of constitutional money by Congress a simple matter; issuing the money, by Congress, directly to the people. The combination of these procedures will result in a minimum of, if any, disruption in the economy, in businesses and in the comfort and convenience of Citizens.The natural outcome would be that all properties owned by the Money-lenders, including Bank properties, would be immediately “Nationalized” and taken over by the Government, until they could be disposed of by sale or restitution to private Citizens. The Banks, with their bookkeeping machines and computers, would remain in Government hands to function as part of the Government-controlled and managed money system.The electronic computers of the Banks, with the help of others in Industry, would be used to compute the payment of just debts, cancel unjust debts, issue an adequate money supply and provide new and correct records of property ownership, as required.It is not impossible that this could he done within just 12 months-a year of “jubile.”This release from the control of Mammon will be coincidental with a National turning to our Redeemer, the Lord Jesus Christ. This will be done by the National acknowledgement of His Sovereignty and His atoning sacrifice for His People. It is no coincidence that the proclamation of the year of “jubile” was to be made on “the day of atonement” Leviticus 25:9. We will be forced by circumstances to proclaim and accept the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ for our Nation and turn to His Word, the Holy Bible, for instruction in all Government operations, including money.Referring to this time “at the end of the Age”, God said, through Isaiah His Prophet: “And I will turn My hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin: And I will restore thy Judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning”: Isaiah 1:25-26.We will, then, have Christian Judges and Counsellors, once again in the land, and that means we will have a Christian Supreme Court, Christian Presidential Advisors, Christian Congressmen, Governors, Mayors, Attorneys and all others in authority to judge and to counsel.With Christians in authority, it will be God's Word which will be the guide for the restitution and the punishment. “And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the Lord shall be consumed” Isaiah 1:28. It is the wicked who will suffer-not the righteous-in the year of “jubile.”It Has Been Done Before!The Apostle Paul recounted some Israel history in 1 Corinthians, 10: and then wrote v. 11: “Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples (or types): and they are written (recorded) for our admonition (learning), upon whom the ends of the world are come.”The Book of Nehemiah, in the Old Testament, gives us an account of the cancellation of all debts in a Nation and the restoration of foreclosed property to its rightful owners. Christian Authorities in the United States of America may use thisas their guide.The description of their condition reads like present day America: “And there was a great cry of the people and of their wives against their brethren the Jews. For there were that said: We, our sons, and our daughters, are many: therefore we take up corn for them (work for them), that we may eat, and live (earn a living).”“Some also there were that said: We have mortgaged our lands, vineyards, and houses, that we might buy corn, because of the dearth.” They had borrowed money on their property in order to carry on trade and buy food because of the “dearth” (lack) of money!They had even borrowed money to pay taxes! “We have borrowed money for the king's tribute, and that upon our lands and vineyards.”They went on to complain that they were obliged to place their children in bondage to the money-lenders: Yet now our flesh is as the flesh of our brethren, our children as their children (that is to say: we are literally-owned by them!): and 10, we bring into bondage our sons and our daughters to be servants, and some of our daughters are brought unto bondage already (they have had to go to work for these people): neither is it in our power to redeem them: for other men have our lands and vineyards.” Those from whom they had borrowed had foreclosed and taken possession of their homes and farms! This sounds like America today if and when the Bankers decide to bring on a depression, then foreclose on our homes.But Nehemiah was a righteous Ruler and he said: “And I was very angry. . . . and I rebuked the Nobles, and the Rulers (the National Leaders were participants in or condoned the crime), and said unto them: Ye exact usury (they charged interest for money). . . . and I set a great assembly against them.“And I said unto them: We after our ability have redeemed our brethren the Jews, which were sold unto the heathen (that is to say: we have saved the Jews from their enemies); and will ye (Jews) even sell your brethren?”Nehemiah went on to condemn them for disobeying God, in the next few verses, and then he gave the order for restoration: “Restore, I pray you, to them, even this day, their lands, their vineyards, their oliveyards and their homes (return title to all foreclosed property), also, the hundredth part of the money, and of the corn, the wine, and the oil, that ye exact of them.” We owe the Money-lenders many times more money than exists, so they cannot restore it all to us. But cancellation of all debts, restoration of all property, and restoration of what money they have in their possession, will destroy their power over us, just as it did then. Nehemiah forced them to do this under threat of punishment from the Government, and the huilding of the Nation went on successfully.It shall be so in the United States of America when we return to, and obey, the Word._______________The Nations DictatorYES, YOU, the Federal Reserve Banking System, you are the dictator in our great nation. You are the Nero that fiddles while Rome is burning.We in Congress can study for years, travel for miles, and legislate for months, striving to enact sound legislation. We come to Washington holding aloft a mandate from the people. We come clothed in power by the ballots representing the will of 135,000,000 citizens. We come to enact laws for the general welfare, but in every nook and corner of the Nation's Capital you are here, the invisible government, the power behind the throne of government. You with your red flag of economic dictatorship, you whisper into the ear of Congress, "Listen! We hold the power supreme, the power of money, and by this power we can dictate and determine just who shall occupy our seat." You whisper into the ear of the Public Press, "Listen! We hold by the power of money the control of big business that buys your advertising contracts, that determines the life or death of your paper." You whisper to the management of radio broadcasting stations, "Listen! We own the bonds and the stocks directly or indirectly. Your salary depends upon us."We pass worthy laws through the House and Senate, and the President signs. We attach a large penalty for violation, and congratulate ourselves that we have expressed the will of the people in laws, but you, the Federal Reserve Banking System, you hold in your hand a mightier power, the power of money, for by this power you control God Almighty's first law, the law of self-preservation. By the power of money you command and inflict the penalties of starvation and deprivation, misery and want. You can break every law Congress can ever make. You can starve the most righteous soul until he will steal that his loved ones may have food and shelter.You can crowd the most peaceful man until he will kill in murder and war that the reasonable wants of his loved ones may be satisfied. On the auction block of starvation and deprivation Man will sell his honor and Woman will sell her soul to satisfy that inward craving for food that God has put in the mind and body of man.Yes, with this magic wand, the power of money, this firebrand of destruction, you can change to criminals our citizens of most worthy stamp, change a patriot into an enemy, love for country, into hate. You can destroy-as you are doing today and as you have done twenty-three other times in the past-the homes of the nation, the units in the foundation of government, that determine the perpetuation of our great Democracy. You, by the power of money, can turn back the clock of time from civilization to the dark past. For no power on earth to man for evil or for good can equal the power of money._______________Excerpts from speech, Congressional Record, by C. G. Binderup

Gospel of the Kingdom By Conrad Gaard

In these days of uncertainty and confusion, it is encouraging that there is a very lively interest in the coming elections. People are becoming aware of the fact that the fate of our nation and the world now hang in the balance. But it is a sad, and even a tragic, thing that most of our people and pratically all of our leaders completely ignore the instructions and the admonitions which have been recorded for us in the Holy Scriptures. Christians generally understand and accept the free gift of everlasting life offered to every dying child of Adam individually and personally in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, but very few of them understand the plan and the pattern for the establishment on the earth of that kingdom for which Jesus told his disciples to pray. The Bible story deals primarily with two aspects of the Lord's program for the restitution of all things which he hath revealed throught the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began, namely (1) personal salvation from the condemnation of death under which every child of Adam is born, and (2) the establishment of God's Kingdom of righteousness and justice among men right here on earth. According to the clear revelations of the prophets, the Lord called out and set apart a servant people, whom he has been training and preparing to become the nucleus of his kingdom on the earth, and in the scriptures we find hundreds of marks of identification by which these servant peoples were to be known in the last days. Furthermore, the prophets have given us a pre-written history of these called out peoples. When we compare these marks of identification and the pre-written record of the prophets with secular history and the discoveries of the archeologists we are forced to the inescapable conclusion that the freedom loving Celto-Anglo-Saxon and kindred peoples are the ''people of the book'' and then too we find that our own nation, ''We the People of the United States'' and the ''British Commonwealth of Nations' are the ''Great People'' and the ''Great Company of Nations'' to whom the Lord has assigned a definite mission in the consumation of his great plan of the ages. However, many honest souls, often times ask me: ''Well even if the Celto-Anglo-Saxon peoples are the so-called 'lost sheep of the house of Israel', what difference does it make?'' This is a fair question and I shall present some of the facts which go to show that it really does make a difference whether or not we are the Bible people and a Bible nation. First of all the inspired writers of the Bible make it very clear that it is the Lord's avowed purpose to establish his own kingdom of righteousness right here on this earth and when we read the Bible story carefully it also becomes very clear that this kingdom of God on the earth is as literal and as real as are the imperfect kingdoms of this world under which we now live. Furthermore, through his prophets, the Lord emphatically declares that the ''children of Abraham'' which come down through the line of Isaac and Jacob-Israel are to become this great servant nation which all of the other peoples and nations of the earth shall be blessed. And the Biblical writers tell us most definately that the resurrected Christ shall be the king ruling over this great nation. The prophet Isaiah wrote: ''Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder,'' and in the next verse he explains: ''of the increase his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgement and justice, from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.'' Now David's throne was in the old kingdom of Israel, therefore this prophecy means that this promised son is to ''order and establish judgement and justice'' in the restored kingdom of Israel. This is also borne out by the words of the angel Gabriel to Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, that the Lord God would give unto her son, ''the throne of his father David and he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever.'' Under the circumstances, does it make a difference whether or not we are modern Israel? It most certainly does - for if we are modern Israel in the world today it means that we must, and we shall, fulfill the mission that the Lord assigned to his servant people. And it therefore follows that we must as a people and a nation give heed to the lord's admonitions and instructions to his people. Through his prophet Moses, the Lord codified his own ''eternal rules of order and right'' as the commandments, statutes and judgements of the Lord and he ordained that this codified law should be the national constitution and body of law for his servant nation. Now if we are the people whom the Lord called as his servant people, then we must adopt that divine constitution for the administration of judgment and justice in the nation. To sum up the matter - if we are modern Israel in the world today, then we must acknowledge Jesus Christ as our actual king and we must return to God's own perfect national constitution, under which Jesus, as king, shall administer judgement and justice to the people. So we see that it does make a very real and vital difference whether or not we are modern Israel. There is also another aspect of this matter which must also be taken ito account, for if we are modern Israel - i ''We, the People of the U.S.'' are the ''Great People'' which the tribe of Manasseh should become in the last days, according to Jacob's prophecy when he blessed his sons - then the instructions for the administration of national and international affairs as given by the Lord through his prophets, apply to the very problems now causing so much controversy in our nation and the world. Now one of the basic administrations given to us as a nation is that we should not enter into pacts and agreements with those nations which do not accept the fundamental principles of truth and justice and righteousness which must be the foundation of the administration of equal justice to all men. And through his prophets the Lord told us that ant attempts to establish peace and security in the earth through pacts and agreements which rest on no higher authority than armed might will not bring peace to the peoples of the earth. For instance, the prophet Isaiah warns: ''associate yourselves, ye nations, and ye shall be broken in pieces. Take counsel together and it shall come to naught.'' Surely it should be apparent to everyone now that all attempts to ''associate the nations of the earth'' have failed, and all the ''counsels of the nations'' have come to naught.'' I am well aware of the fact that the collectivist one worlders would call the instructions of the Lord, as given through his prophets in the scriptures, isolationist and reactionary: and, while I do not propose to enter into any argument or debate on this matter, I do want to point out that the so-called ''internationalists'' have dominated both national and international policies of all of the free western nations for more than a century, during which time the rights of free man have been abriged and circumscribed on the spurious pretext that this was necessary to maintain freedom and to give more freedom to the people of the earth. The essence of the collectivist world program seems to be that we can ''give freedom to other men'' by giving up some of our own freedoms. I know that sounds foolish, but honestly now, isn't that just what we are doing at the present time? Let's be realistic in this matter. Freedom is not a commodity to be divided. In other words no people can give freedom to other peoples by giving up a part of their own freedom. Such a course of action is merely playing into the hands of bureaucrats and would-be masters. And the collectivist planners tell us that we must give control over our lives and actions to governmental commissars in order to control the production and distribution of the necessities of life, but here to the fallacy of this program is proven by the testimony of history. In all the history of time no people have ever become prosperous under the control of dictators. But America showed the way to prosperity and freedom for all when men were free to work out their own destinies under simple ''rules of order and right'' designed to protect the individual in the free enjoyement of his rights as a free man. It is a matter of record that our American free way of life was established of the eternal ''rules of order and right which heaven itself has ordained,'' and the prophets have warned us that we will lose our free way of life if we enter into pacts and agreements with those nations and peoples who do not acknowledge these eternal ''rules of order and right.'' In Psalm 33, the Psalmist cries: ''YHVH bring the counsel of the nations to naught; he maketh the plans of men of none effect. The counsel of YHVH standeth forever, the purposes of his heart to all ages. Blessed be the nation whose God is YHVH; and the people he hath chosen for his own inheritance.'' After WW1, the nations of the world ''took counsel together'' to preserve peace and democracy in the earth, but all these counsels were of ''none effect.'' And then when WW2 ended the nations of the world again took ''counsel together'' but these counsels too proved ineffective. But still the only program our statesmen and leaders and politicians offer is to continue such international counsels. When, oh when, will our people awaken to the fact that in the scriptures we have a perfect ''peace program'' for the very times in which we now live, for; the counsel of YHVH standeth forever, the purposes of his heart to all ages.'' Such a return to the Lord means more than merely accepting Jesus Christ as the saviour of the individual, we must collectively and nationally return to the laws of the Lord as the foundation for the administration of our national, as well as our personal, life and actions. In the scriptures we find the perfect blue-print for the perfect government program which it is our divinely appointed mission to establish on the earth. And when we, as a people, turn to this perfect plan for social organization then, not only shall we insure lasting peace and security and freedom for ourselves, but we shall also become a ''light to all of the other peoples and nations of the earth'' to lead them ino a truly new order of the ages, namely, the Kingdom of God on the earth, FOR THAT IS THE DESTINY OF AMERICA.
