The Exoneration of Paul, Part 3

Wake Up, White Man.
Many Christians have been taught that the Covenants by Yahweh to Israel were expanded to non-Israelites at the Cross. This is what Evangelical Christianity believes. There is no doubt that this planet is destined to be brought under Yahshua's "rod of iron," which means just government according to Yahweh's Laws. The doctrine known as "Dispensationalism" turns all of these prophecies up-side-down and makes a mockery of the Laws by which we will be judged. I have written extensively against this doctrine and show it to be a modernist heresy.
The "spiritual Israel" doctrine is another heresy. My position on Israel-in-the flesh is that Israel is saved by being given immortal flesh bodies, but the other races are blessed through us via the establishment of Yahshua's divine government through us.
The "Jews" and "Gentiles" to which Paul refers are not the Christ-hating Jews of today, nor was he addressing the Christ-hating Edomites of Judea. Paul was addressing the traditionalist Judahites of his time as well as the non-law keeping Dispersion throughout the Greco-Roman world. The Edomite Jews, who were in the process of developing the anti-Mosaic Talmud, were trying to kill Paul, for teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Paul had washed his hands of them, just as Jesus did. Paul even stresses that these Edomites are "vessels of dishonor," (Rom. 9:21) and he excludes them from any part in the inheritance, just as he excludes the descendants of Ishmael in the Book of Galatians, Chapter 4. These two chpaters totally refute the universalism taught in the churches today. Romans 9 is addressed to the Israelites of the seed of Isaac through Jacob; and Paul here very distinctly differentiates between the descendants of Jacob versus the descendants of Esau. (Rom. 9:13). Rom. 9:26 confirms the prophecy that the Dispersed Israelites, who have forgotten who we are, will one day be acknowledged as His Chosen People.
Also, the word 'Gentiles' never means non-Israelites. It is a reference to the Israelites of the Dispersion. The same is true of Paul's usage of the words, 'circumcision' and 'uncircumcision.' The circumcision means the ritual-keeping two-tribed House of Judah. The uncircumcision means the Dispersed Israelites of the ten-tribed House of Israel. Thus, when Paul says he is the "Apostle to the Gentiles," he means that he was sent to the Dispersion. When he is addressing the 'uncircumcision,' he means, again, the dispersion. All of Paul's epistles were addressed to specific groups of the Dispersion, just as the epistle of James (James 1:1) and Peter (I Peter 1:1-2). The word 'strangers,' has there been mistranslated. The Greek word means "estranged." There is a significant difference between "strangers" and the "estranged," for only True Israel has been estranged from Yahweh, by violating the Law Covenant at Sinai. Since no other group of humans has ever received this Law Covenant, only Israel was estranged. And this is why Jesus said, "I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the House of Israel." These are just a few examples of many hundreds, in which the churches have deliberately universalized the language of the New Testament, in order to purvey their subtle imperialism. By spiritualizing True Israel and converting the other races, the churches have become apostate, as Paul predicted they would do in II Thess. 2. These two doctrines, Dispensationalism and Universalism, combine to make the Great Apostasy of Christendom today. These are the very "doctrines of devils" by which the masses of Christianity are led astray. The Bible clearly says that the whole world will be deceived, except for the Elect. Only the Elect can see through these deceptions.
Also, the word 'adoption' means "the placing of a son" in Greek. (Rom. 9:4) This is, again, an exclusively Israelite statement, as only Israelites can inherit the Covenants. Non-Israelites cannot be placed as sons, since they aren't! These are just a few examples of subtle mistranslations, and misrepresentations of Scripture, of which there are many. The actual Greek supports the view that Paul was a racially exclusive Israelite, teaching a racially exclusive doctrine.
My teachings are considered radical, but my work is in full accordance with the Westminster Confession, which demands that errors in translation be resolved by hearkening back to the original Hebrew and Greek. The churches have abandoned this protocol, in order to purvey their universalism.
I here quote Paragraph 8 of Chapter 1, which demands that any discrepancies of translation must be resolved by referring back to the original Hebrew and Greek. If the KJV is in error, the original languages will show how and why.
VIII. The Old Testament in Hebrew (which was the native language of the people of God of old), and the New Testament in Greek (which at the time of the writing of it was most generally known to the nations), being immediately inspired by God, and by his singular care and providence kept pure in all ages, are therefore authentical; so as in all controversies of religion the Church is finally to appeal unto them. But because these original tongues are not known to all the people of God who have right unto, and interest in, the Scriptures, and are commanded, in the fear of God, to read and search them, therefore they are to be translated into the vulgar language of every nation unto which they come, that the Word of God dwelling plentifully in all, they may worship him in an acceptable manner, and, through patience and comfort of the Scriptures, may have hope.
We in Christian Identity are constantly being accused of formulating a "new doctriine." On the contrary, we are exposing the heresies that have crept in unawares. Today, these heresies are being purveyed from the pulpits of all major denominations. The fact is that Christian identity is the pure, unadulterated OLD TIME RELIGION. We are the traditionalists. All of the other denominations teach modernist heresy.
Now, announcing "The Exoneration of Paul, Part 3: Paul Confirms the Law."
