WHO IS GOD SAVE THE LORD…
WHO IS A ROCK, SAVE OUR GOD
“God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel,
the LORD God of your fathers,
the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob,
hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever,
and this is my memorial unto all generations.”
“For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?”
“My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.”
“Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man,
and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
“Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.”
“The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.”
“Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth:
for I am God, and there is none else.
23I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness,
and shall not return,
That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. ”

People may believe in all kinds of gods, but only ONE GOD Created the Heavens and its Hosts, the Sun, Moon, and Earth, and all things therein and that exist. These are the MIGHTY WORKS that all stand witness that they were established by an All-Mighty, Most Powerful and Omnipotent GOD. They need not speak a word for their positions in the Heavens and in the Earth speak volumes that there is GOD.
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.” Psalm 19:1 – 3
“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.” Psalm 14:1 – 4
From GOD’s WORKS of CREATION and from HIS WORK of Righteousness (HIS Book of the Law) we learn WISDOM, and I cannot stress this enough.
“Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.” Psalm 119:18
“Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.
“And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?” Deuteronomy 4:6,8
“And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day. And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.” Deuteronomy 6:24,25
“The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.” Psalm 19:7 – 11
“To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” Isaiah 8:20
“The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable.” Isaiah 42:21
THE CREATOR GOD’s RIGHTEOUSNESS DID NOT BEGIN AT THE TIME OF THE ROMAN ERA…
The CREATOR GOD presented HIS LAWS of Righteousness to the world IN THE BEGINNING to discern what’s right from wrong. Without GOD’s Ways of Righteousness, Noah and his family would not have been spared from the FLOOD. Without observing GOD’s Ways of Righteousness, we would not know HIM and HIS TRUTH, and THEREFORE, we cannot be SAVED.
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.” Deuteronomy 6:4 - 7
“…beware lest thou forget the LORD, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name. Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you; (For the LORD thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.” Deuteronomy 6:12 - 15
“Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.” Psalm 20:6
“Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die. But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right,
“Hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept my judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the Lord GOD.” Ezekiel 18:4,5,9
“When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and dieth in them; for his iniquity that he hath done shall he die. Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.” Ezekiel 18:26,27
WHAT HAPPENED TO GOD’s COUNSELS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS? WHY DON’T WE SEEK THEM AND ABANDON THE WAYS OF THE SLAVE MASTERS?
Descendants of Slaves embrace the lifestyles of the Slave Masters: the religions and holidays of the Slave Masters, the educational system of the Slave Masters, the democracy of the Slave Masters, the aspirations of the Slave Masters, and the warmongering and murdering of the innocent as directed by the Slave Masters. Be aware that these are the evidences and fulfillment of the curses written in Leviticus 26th and in Deuteronomy 28th Chapters for disobedience to the CREATOR GOD. How long and what will it take before GOD’s Chosen People and all mankind who seek Truth realize that this world system is ordered by a people who hide GOD’s Truth and who have no desire to live by the Ways of a Righteous and JUST GOD?
Where are the principles and the culture of the descendants of Slaves who seek FREEDOM? HOW CAN GOD’s CHOSEN NATION BE ITSELF AND PLEASE ITS GOD AND ALSO LIVE THE WAYS OF THE HEATHEN?
Are peoples, nations, and tongues living according to GOD’s WORD and HIS LAW, today? Of course not! Only the CREATOR can number the sad few who Fear HIM and who seek to follow HIS Ways. This present world system is too caught up in self-serving interests while the poor and defenseless suffer miserably. And the order of every day in this world is survival of the rich and famous, while seeking to know GOD and HIS TRUTH is of little or no concern. Furthermore, unknowingly, today’s lifestyles keep us as far away from the CREATOR GOD and HIS Ways of Righteousness as possible. Resulting from these standards of living, we are faced with all manner of evil and wickedness at every turn that cause our demise and our fall into an abyss out of which most of us cannot recover.
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THIS ONCE GOOD EARTH?
“The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.” Isaiah 24:5,6
“…I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey my voice, and do them, according to all which I command you: so shall ye be my people, and I will be your God:” Jeremiah 11:4
“Why dost thou shew me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are before me: and there are that raise up strife and contention. Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.” Habakkuk 1:3,4
Our only hope is in the CREATOR of this Universe, in seeking HIM to Know HIM and to know HIS WORD on SALVATION, or I do not have to tell you that we will be forever lost.
I always speak of the fact that the CREATOR GOD presented HIS Righteousness in the BEGINNING, otherwise Noah would not have found Grace in the Eyes of the LORD (Genesis 6:8) and certainly GOD would not have seen him “Righteous” before HIM in his generation (Genesis 7:1).
The Righteousness that GOD Created in the BEGINNING of Time is still a factor for Israelites and for all mankind to embrace, now and for evermore.
“And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day. And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.” Deuteronomy 6:24,25
It was then and is still now incumbent upon us all to understand this TRUTH. Since CREATION, mankind has done all in his power and authority to manifest worship of another god and invent and establish his ways and directives not endorsed by the CREATOR. Wisdom is knowing that the CREATOR GOD is not going to give in to mankind’s evil and wicked shenanigans and allow those HE Created to change HIS Ways of Righteousness. Is not this what caused the CREATOR to FLOOD the Earth? THINK about it! Wickedness existed then, and it exists now, and think not that it will continue forever, for it won’t. The CREATOR of this Heaven and Earth wants HIS due, which is to have mankind occupy HIS Earth according to the Ways of Righteousness that HE has Commanded.
Ask yourselves why and what would be the purpose of changing what GOD has defined as living in “Righteousness”, and that by doing so would cause us to please this True and Living GOD? What sense would it make to even alter GOD’s WORD at all? And more importantly, where is it written in the WORDS of the CREATOR that HE, the inventor of HIS LAWS of “Righteousness”, did in fact revoke, alter or reform (for modern times) or adjust HIS Righteousness even one iota for the works of man’s Christian teachings? Of a Truth, the CREATOR GOD of Israel has left us HIS WORD that HE will put this very same LAW in the hearts of HIS People. As a matter of fact, this is the “New Covenant” prophesied by HIS Prophet Jeremiah.
“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” Jeremiah 31:31 – 34
And where is it written anywhere in GOD’s WORD stating that HE condones belief and worship in other gods?
“I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and THOU SHALT KNOW NO god BUT ME: for there is no saviour beside me.” Hosea 13:4
You cannot find where the JEALOUS CREATOR GOD initially said to worship JC or any other god because it is not there. But I’ll tell you what you can find; you can find where Our CREATOR GOD of Israel has cursed us for rejecting HIM for other gods and has left us to serve false gods these deities.
“Saying to a stock, Thou art my father; and to a stone, Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned their back unto me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us. But where are thy gods that thou hast made thee? let them arise, if they can save thee in the time of thy trouble: for according to the number of thy cities are thy gods, O Judah. Wherefore will ye plead with me? ye all have transgressed against me, saith the LORD. In vain have I smitten your children; they received no correction: your own sword hath devoured your prophets, like a destroying lion. O generation, see ye the word of the LORD. Have I been a wilderness unto Israel? a land of darkness? wherefore say my people, We are lords; we will come no more unto thee?” Jeremiah 2:27 - 31
“Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin, altars shall be unto him to sin. “ Hosea 8:11
“I did know thee in the wilderness, in the land of great drought. According to their pasture, so were they filled; they were filled, and their heart was exalted; therefore have they forgotten me. Therefore I will be unto them as a lion: as a leopard by the way will I observe them: I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her whelps, and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I devour them like a lion: the wild beast shall tear them.” Hosea 13:5 - 8
“And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and THERE THOU SHALT SERVE OTHER gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.
[THERE YOU HAVE IT! THE CREATOR GOD has given mankind whatever he wants to worship in order to prove that belief in these false gods is futile. And JC and the teachings of the “New Testament” are no exception.]
And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:” Deuteronomy 28:64,65 (Pls. Read all of Deuteronomy 28th Chapter for knowledge of the Slave Trade.)
Hence, mankind has his gods, but they are not able to save them or to make this planet Earth a better place to live. We live in HELL while the churches line the streets around the world, while missionaries brainwash the poor and the subjugated to false teachings, and while the pope and his ilk rule the Vatican and control and sustain poor countries and peoples on every continent with GOD’s Chosen/Covenant People right there in this horrible mix.
“O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help. I will be thy king: where is any other that may save thee in all thy cities?…” Hosea 13:9,10
“Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel. For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard. My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him. The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever. All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee. For the kingdom is the LORD'S: and he is the governor among the nations.
“They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.” Psalm 22:23 – 28,31
The GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob has a two-fold reason for blotting out the sins of HIS Covenant People. Firstly, we must be pardoned in order for Our GOD of Israel to RETURN TO US. And secondly, it is of great significance to know that the CREATOR GOD bears a Most Holy Name, and one that HE cherishes dearly.
“God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.” Exodus 3:15
“I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. Put me in remembrance:” Isaiah 43:25,26
“And I scattered them among the heathen, and they were dispersed through the countries: according to their way and according to their doings I judged them. And when they entered unto the heathen, whither they went, they profaned my holy name, when they said to them, These are the people of the LORD, and are gone forth out of his land. But I had pity for mine holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the heathen, whither they went. Therefore say unto the house of Israel, thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name's sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went. And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.” Ezekiel 36:19 – 23
Our GOD of Israel is big on names. HE gave to Abram, Abraham, to his son, HE gave Isaac, and to Jacob HE gave “Israel”, which represents all Twelve Tribes. Moreover, HE gave HIMSELF the Holy Name of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
NOTHING IS WRITTEN ANYWHERE TO SUPPORT THE PREMISE THAT GOD CHANGED HIS DIVINE LAWS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR THE LIKES OF THE TEACHINGS OF THE “NEW TESTAMENT” OR ANY OTHER RELIGION - ONLY THE CONTRARY!!!
“Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;” Deuteronomy 7:9
“The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” Deuteronomy 29:29
“Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations; Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac; And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,” I Chronicles 16:15 – 17
“Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.” Psalm 119:142
“…the LORD, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt with great power and a stretched out arm, him shall ye fear, and him shall ye worship, and to him shall ye do sacrifice. And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law, and the commandment, which he wrote for you, ye shall observe to do for evermore; and ye shall not fear other gods. And the covenant that I have made with you ye shall not forget; neither shall ye fear other gods. But the LORD your God ye shall fear; and he shall deliver you out of the hand of all your enemies.” II Kings 17:36 – 39
“But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.” Ezekiel 18:21
“Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers: And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee. Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle. And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee.” Deuteronomy 7:12 - 15
Through living and doing GOD’s Ways of Righteousness and HIS Counsel, we are made wise in order to Judge and rule Righteously.
“The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.” Psalm 9:16
Do not let the FLOOD and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah be forgotten. These are two happenings that occurred because of wickedness, and think not that these destructions elude those of us living today. Actually, great destruction and devastation are happening now, all over the world giving all people an opportunity to turn to the ONE True and Living GOD, if they will.
“Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD'S anger.” Zephaniah 2:3
“Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.” Psalm 33:1
“For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
“The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment. The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.” Psalm 37:28,30,31
“His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever. He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.” Psalm 111:3,4
Learn from the Biblical history in the Hebrew Scriptures. It was our forefathers, GOD’s Chosen People, who were condemned for forsaking HIM and for forsaking HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments. Therefore, think not that this present world of peoples and nations will not be Judged for the same reasons – EVIL AND WICKEDNESS!
“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
“In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken usury and increase, and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbours by extortion, and hast forgotten me, saith the Lord GOD. Behold, therefore I have smitten mine hand at thy dishonest gain which thou hast made, and at thy blood which hath been in the midst of thee. Can thine heart endure, or can thine hands be strong, in the days that I shall deal with thee? I the LORD have spoken it, and will do it.” Ezekiel 22:12 – 14
“Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast forgotten me, and cast me behind thy back, therefore bear thou also thy lewdness and thy whoredoms.” Ezekiel 23:35
Sure; these verses are about the Children of Israel, but has not the world also done likewise to forget GOD by inventing their own evil and worthless deities? Why would the JEALOUS CREATOR GOD be happy with the people HE Created turning to false gods and worshipping anything but HIM? Where in GOD’s WORD and in HIS LAW does HE teach people about worship and belief in another God?
“Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.” Psalm 16:4
KNOW FROM WHENCE COMETH THY HELP!!!
“My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:2
“Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.” Isaiah 45:20
What does the CREATOR GOD say about HIS First Commandment? Would HE change HIS LAW and this Commandment, too?
“And God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;” Exodus 20:1 – 5
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.” Deuteronomy 6:L4,5
And what does GOD say about those who turn to other gods?
“Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them. Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go, and cry unto the gods unto whom they offer incense: but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble.” Jeremiah 11:11,12
From the words of GOD’s Servant and Prophet Moses, we know unequivocally that we are Commanded to live GOD’s Book of the Law and nothing else and for as long as we live on HIS Earth.
“These are the statutes and judgments, which ye shall observe to do in the land, which the LORD God of thy fathers giveth thee to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth.” Deuteronomy 12:1
THERE IS A CREATOR GOD, AND HE HAS PLANS FOR ALL THE WICKED AND FOR ALL WORSHIPPERS OF FALSE gods!
“Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.” Isaiah 13:6 – 11
“Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
“The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:” Joel 2:1,2,10
JC worshippers and believers are left in the dark to have “faith” no matter what happens - just have “faith”. And indeed relentlessly “faith” is the hope of Messianics and Christians more so than is GOD. But with the CREATOR GOD of Israel at least people can learn why there are heathens still controlling HIS Earth, why Blacks are captives in the lands of Slavers, and why GOD has left this planet to the wicked. At least there are credible answers and reasons for these terrible lifestyles and painful conditions and sufferings we endure and see every single day. And more importantly, we can learn and feel confident in knowing that seeking to know the True and Living CREATOR GOD is our way out of this captivity and the White man’s religion. GOD’s WORD (and not man’s) and HIS PROMISES will bring us out of this affliction and despair IF WE WILL JUST TURN TO HIM, which is all that HE has ever asked of us in the first place.
Let us change the times by calling upon the ONE TRUE and LIVING GOD in Truth and in Righteousness. As much as belief and FEAR in the ONE CREATOR GOD is imperative, so also must we acknowledge our sins, for indeed our transgressions and disobedience are the reasons for the curses upon us and upon this world and for the depressing life in which we now live in captivity and for the injustice, corruption, and race hatred we face at every turn.
“And the LORD said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah. Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the LORD; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the LORD, and I will not keep anger for ever. Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the LORD thy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the LORD. Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion: And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.” Jeremiah 3:11 – 15
King David confessed his sins to the Holy ONE, and HE forgave him. Let us also be so humbled and do likewise, for indeed our troubles are more than we can bear.
“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
“I acknowledge my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.” Psalm 32:1,5
WHAT NOW MUST ISRAELITES AND ALL MANKIND BE DOING DURING THESE LATTER DAYS? SEEK TRUTH AND SEEK THE WAYS OF THE MOST HIGHT CREATOR GOD, FOR THIS IS THE “HOPE” THAT MATTERS:
“Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.” Psalm 37:3 – 6
“Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.” Psalm 37:7 - 9
“Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
“Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.
“But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.
“And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.” Psalm 37:34,37,39,40
“A voice was heard upon the high places, weeping and supplications of the children of Israel: for they have perverted their way, and they have forgotten the LORD their God. Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art the LORD our God. Truly in vain is salvation hoped for from the hills, and from the multitude of mountains: truly in the LORD our God is the salvation of Israel.” Jeremiah 3:21 – 23
“Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
“O LORD, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters.” Jeremiah 17:7,13
“Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, saith the LORD: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the LORD; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.” Jeremiah 29:12 – 14
“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” Jeremiah 33:3
“It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.” Lamentations 3:22 - 27
“For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.” Isaiah 61:11
“Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.” Joel 2:12,13
“The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.” Joel 3:16
“And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.” Psalm 37:40
WHAT THEN AFTER WE RETURN TO THE CREATOR GOD TO CALL UPON HIM? WHAT THEN WILL HE DO FOR US?
“The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways. And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee.
“And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them: And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.” Deuteronomy 28:9,10,13,14
“He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it. And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this isthe LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.” Isaiah 25:8,9
“But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life. Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.” Isaiah 43:1 – 7
“The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee; The city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel. Whereas thou has been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations. Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.” Isaiah 60:14 – 16
“Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended. Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, THAT I MAY BE GLORIFIED. A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in his time.” Isaiah 60:20 – 22
“And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel to return, and will build them, as at the first. And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against me. And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the good that I do unto them: and they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure unto it.” Jeremiah 33:7 - 9
“Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame. At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD.” Zephaniah 3:19,20
Our GOD of Israel will take us out of the hands of Gentiles and out of oppression and heartache. And HE will not only cleanse our heads, but cleanse our blood and our hearts. HE will heal our bodies and give us a pure language. What can be better that all this? We can hope for all this and know of a surety that Our GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will keep HIS Promises.
Let’s give Our GOD of Israel a chance to do for us what no other god has done or can do!
OUR GOD WILL MAKE OUR HEARTS RIGHT TO WORSHIP HIM, WILL CLEANSE OUR SOULS, AND WILL MAKE US WORTHY TO BE HIS RIGHTEOUS SERVANTS!
“This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.” Isaiah 43:21
“I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes. For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God. I will also save you from all your uncleannesses…” Ezekiel 36:23 – 29
“Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded. And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by. And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited. Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it. Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock. As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the LORD.” Ezekiel 36:33 – 38
We must continue from where Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob left off…we must follow in their footsteps to look to the CREATOR LORD GOD of Israel and to NONE ELSE and be obedient and faithful to all that HE requires of us!
“I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King.” Isaiah 43:15
“For the LORD's portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance. He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye. As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.” Deuteronomy 32:9 - 12
“This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise. But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel.” Isaiah 43:21,22
“I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.” Isaiah 43:25,26
“And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good? Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORD's thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is. Only the LORD had a delight in thy fathers to love them, and he chose their seed after them, even you above all people, as it is this day. Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked. For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward: He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment. Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt. Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name. He is thy praise, and he is thy God, that hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen.” Deuteronomy 10:12 - 21
It seems like such a small thing to do: Fear Our GOD, Walk in HIS Ways, Love HIM, Serve HIM with all our soul, and Keep HIS Commandments and Statutes. THAT’S ALL IT TAKES! It stands to reason that if it was the CRERATOR GOD of Israel that caused our bondage and captivity for disobedience to HIS LAW and for turning to false gods, then for sure our appeal for DELIVERANCE and SALVATION must be to this same GOD of Abraham and Moses. Of most import and significance, Our GOD of Israel is our “LIFE” and so also is HIS LAW. Does that not speak volumes or what?
“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.” Deuteronomy 30:19,20
“And Moses…said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law. For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.” Deuteronomy 32:45 - 47
And for sure the teachings of the “New Testament” cannot contest the WORDS of GOD’s Prophet Moses, for indeed the so-called “Gospel” pales in comparison to what THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
SO NOW, ARE WE GOING TO CONTINUE EMBRACING MAN’S WAYS AND MAN’S RELIGIONS, OR ARE WE GOING TO SEEK GOD’s TRUTH AND DO WHAT HE HAS REQUIRED OF US? JUST KNOW THAT IT IS ALL UP TO US, AND OUR GOD OF ISRAEL WILL MAKE HIS DECISION BASED UPON WHAT WE CHOOSE TO DO.
ALSO, LET US NOT FORGET THAT THE CREATOR CHOSE ONLY THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL FOR HIS SERVANTS. THEREFORE, WE MUST RETURN TO OUR PLACE AND BE A LIGHT TO THE WORLD FOR HIM FROM JERUSALEM HIS HOLY CITY. ALL MANKIND MUST KNOW TO FEAR THE CREATOR GOD OF ISRAEL AND TO LIVE ACCORDING TO HIS WAYS IF WE (AND ALL MANKIND) DESIRE TO LIVE IN HIS PEACE AND IN HIS HAPPINESS UPON HIS EARTH!
“I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness
and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth
from the great congregation. Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD:
let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.”
“Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee:
let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.”
“…thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.”
“Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting.”
HALLELUYAH, HALLELUYAH, HALLELUYAH!!!
Servant of the CREATOR GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for HIS Holy Name’s Sake!
