One often-quoted verse from the Sermon on the Mount stands out among those several Bible passages which are frequently abused by universalists. From the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 5, from the King James Version: “9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”
The pundits of the Judaized denominational sects often cite this passage while concluding that Christians should therefore be at peace with all of the peoples of the world, regardless of nation, sexual orientation, race, religion or creed. Sadly, certain Identity Christians would follow them. But what is a peacemaker? Is an appeaser or a placator of aliens, idolators and sinners really a peacemaker? Is a peacemaker one who “builds bridges”, so to speak, with peoples who are outside of the covenants of God? Is that really what Christ referred to when He gave us these words?Examining the Word of God from the Old Testament, we are given a starkly different picture of what a peacemaker actually is. With all certainty, peacemakers in the Biblical sense are not the world's compromisers, and neither are such peacemakers found to be placators or appeasers. Rather, they are those who would uphold the Word of God, as the author of the Proverbs said: “He that winks with his eyes deceitfully, procures griefs for men; but he that reproves boldly is a peacemaker” (Proverbs 10:10, from the Septuagint).
In Deuteronomy chapter 23 we see the following, in part: “2 A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD. 3 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever... 6 Thou shalt not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy days for ever”.
In Deuteronomy chapter 29 we see even stronger and more general admonitions: “16 For ye know how we have dwelt in the land of Egypt; and how we came through the nations which ye passed by; 17 And ye have seen their abominations, and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which were among them: 18 Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from the LORD our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a root that beareth gall and wormwood; 19 And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the imagination of mine heart, to add drunkenness to thirst: 20 The LORD will not spare him, but then the anger of the LORD and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and the LORD shall blot out his name from under heaven.”
With these two examples, we see that a man who pretends to be a peacemaker and who nevertheless respects those of the non-Christian-Israel nations is deceiving himself, and bringing upon himself the curses of an angry God.
The God and Messiah of Israel, Yahshua Christ, came only “but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel”, and there are many explicit statements in the New Testament which make it quite clear that the Redemption and the promises which are in Christ are applicable only to the children of Israel, who can certainly be identified in the Saxon, Keltic and related nations of Europe. However when aliens and Judaized Christians talk about God and Jesus, they refer not to the God of the Bible nor to the Christ of the Gospel. They can not be referring to Him, because the ideas which they espouse are absolutely contrary to His Word. Rather, the aliens and Judaized Christians have formed their own god in their own image, and therefore they have created for themselves an idol.
A negro or any other non-Israelite who claims to worship the God of the Bible is lying, for the simple reason that by his pretending to be a Christian his profession is contrary to the words of the God of the Bible. However it is not the Identity Christian's place to convince the alien of that, because Christians are not to take their pearls and throw them before swine. The Word of God is only for the children of Israel, according to the Word of God Himself. For example, from Psalm 147: “19 He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel. 20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD.”
The aliens and the universalists have therefore created and are worshipping an idol, and when true Christians seek their peace, they are walking in the vain imaginations of their own hearts, adding drunkenness of mind to a thirst for understanding by respecting the idol of the aliens. For this reason, Identity Christians cannot talk to those of other races about Jesus. Agreement with the alien is disagreement with Yahweh God, with He who is the real Jesus. He never agreed with them, and rather He said of them “Get away from Me, I never knew you” (Matthew 7:23), as in Amos chapter 3 we read that that Yahweh said to Israel “2 You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.” In the very verse which follows He asks “3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”
Christianity is not about the conciliation and appeasement of aliens. Rather, the apostle Paul quoted the prophet Isaiah where he said in his second epistle to the Corinthians, in chapter 6: “17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” In our quotation here we have struck the added word “thing” from the text, since appearing in italics it admittedly does not belong to the original, and since the reference is clearly to them, in the admonishment “come out from among them”, to people and not to things.
From the Septuagint, from Proverbs chapter 3: “1 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: 2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.” And again, from chapter 10: “10 He that winks with his eyes deceitfully, procures griefs for men; but he that reproves boldly is a peacemaker.”
There we see that the man who reproves boldly, reproving his fellows in accordance with laws of God, that man is the true peacemaker. The true peacemaker makes peace with God by obeying His law, and when all men follow the Law of God all men shall have peace. Yahshua Christ could not have meant to refer to placators, appeasers and compromisers in Matthew 5:9. Christians are never to seek their peace, and they are never to respect their idols, because Yahweh God does not know them and because they can never accept the truth of His Word. Christians are never to placate nor seek peace with aliens. Rather, Christians must obey the Word of God in deed.
Neither can men make peace for themselves, from their own reasonings. Rather, peace is one of the promises of obedience given in Deuteronomy chapter 28: “1 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: 2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God. 3 Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. 4 Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. 5 Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. 6 Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out. 7 The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways. 8 The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. 9 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. 10 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.”
Therefore the only way to real peace is to keep the commandments of Yahweh our God. Christians do not rationalize the commandments of God nor do they bargain them away. True peace for the people of God is when the other races and nations fear them. Christians do not compromise: for compromise is failure. True peacemakers cannot compromise the Word of God, or they will only have curses.
From Luke chapter 2: “14 Honor to Yahweh in the heights, and peace upon the earth among approved men.” For all of those who are not of the seed of Israel, who shall never have His approval, there is only the Lake of Fire.
