America - Not Israeli

By Sheldon Emry

Yes, the United States of America is that great nation promised to the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Gen. 18:18 and others).  It is that great nation spoken of by Christ, when He said to the Jewish priests in old Jerusalem, "The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof."

Let us review a few of the names and Scriptural terms used to describe New Jerusalem, or the Kingdom: the Bride of Christ, the holy city, the city of the great God, New Jerusalem, the burdensome stone, this stone, a city that angels measure, the towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein, the city of truth, the mountain of the Lord of hosts, the great Zion, a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof, and on and on.  Is that the old city of Jerusalem we see in Palestine under the Jews?  Is it that old city at any future time?  No! What you see in old Canaanland, in old Palestine, is the city "that killest the prophets," the city that is now "as Shiloh!"

Even Our Troubles Testify of Our Identity

With all we have read in mind, and considering the present situation of the United States of America, surrounded by the nations under the control of World Communism, out government infiltrated by and under the control of anti-Christ people, let us read the rest of Micah 4.  We will see this prophecy is now America's current history.

Verse 9, "Now why dost thou cry aloud?  Is there no king in thee?  Is thy counselor perished?"  We certainly seem to be without good counsel in government! "For pangs have taken thee as a woman in travail.  Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail."  Something is going to be born out of all this trial and tribulation we are going through.  "For now shalt thou go forth out of the city [forsake God's laws], and thou shalt dwell in the field [in anarchy, civil disorders, revolution, and violence], and thou shalt go even to Babylon."

This always stumps those who do not know the correct identity of the "daughter of Zion."  It simply means we will come under the control of the international money powers known in the Scripture as "Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth" (Rev. 17:5) (That is a study in itself - see my "Billions$ for the Bankers$ and Debts to the People").

Deliverance Comes at the Moment of Defeat!

But at the very time when the anti-Christ international conspirators think they have us in their grasp, we will be saved! "And thou shalt go even to Babylon, there shalt thou be delivered: there the Lord shall redeem thee from the hands of thine enemies [see Luke 1: 68-71].  Now also many nations are gathered against thee [all prophets prophesied this], that say Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion."  All the nations of the earth are being gathered against the United States of America, God's great Zion nation.

But God goes on through His prophet, "But they know not the thoughts of The Lord, neither understand they His counsel: for He shall gather them as sheaves into the floor."  Then we are ordered to battle, "Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion; for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the Lord, and their substance unto the Lord of the whole earth."

The Last Battle

We will close this study of the two Jerusalems with that, for it is not my purpose here to describe the battle in which God's Israel people in New Jerusalem will be saved from their enemies.  I have done that in "The Bible says: Russia Will Invade America."  But most Bible students know that all prophecy points to a time when there will be fought between Israel and Israel's enemies, between Christ and anti-Christ, the great battle often called "The Conflict of the Ages."  That that battle will be fought here on this great North American continent is abundantly clear to those who understand both history and prophecy.  For we, the White, Anglo-Saxon, Celtic, Germanic, and kindred peoples, gathered here in the United States and Canada, are those Israel people.

The victorious conclusion of that battle under the banner of Jesus Christ will usher in God's great Kingdom on earth, the millennial reign of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  And His Kingdom is not limited to any one nation, for when "out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem," then "The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ, and He shall reign for ever and ever." (Rev. 11:15)

Why Christians Have Not Known This

I realize that this Bible study has uncovered many things that some Christian readers have never heard.  So I must make it clear that, while I do disagree with much of present day preaching on Israel and the two Jerusalems, I blame the erroneous teachings more on the seminaries than on the preachers.  I have read or seen book after book used by seminaries, and they are filled with thousands of pages of treatises, themes, essays, demands, arguments, studies and "proofs" that the people known today as the Jews are God's Chosen People Israel.  It is simply not so; but I cannot entirely blame a minister who was brought up in a church that taught this error, then went to a seminary that gave him hundreds of hours of instruction in this error, and then turned him out to associate with other preachers who have also been taught the same error.

Henry Ford, a great Christian layman, in his monumental and almost forgotten book, "The International Jew," wrote, "The reading of the Scriptures which confuse the tribe of Judah with Israel, and which interpret every mention of Israel as signifying the Jews, is at the root of more than one-half the confusion and division traceable in Christian doctrinal statements.  The Jews are not the Chosen People, though practically the entire Church has succumbed to the propaganda which declares them to be so."  He wrote that in 1921.  Our seminaries are the victims of "certain men who crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation" (Jude 4).

The Holy Spirit

Paul explained how we were to know the things of God.  "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned" (1 Cor. 2:14).  God makes His Word plain to those who ask Him for understanding, and Jesus Christ explained to us how we would understand future events through the Spirit.  "Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself: but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come."  Future! Future history will be shown by the Holy Spirit.  How?  By visions and signs and wonders?  No! God reveals Himself through His Word - interpreted by the Holy Spirit.  So please ask the Holy Spirit for guidance, instead of asking a minister who repeats only what he has been taught in the seminary.  And read your Bible!!

Israel Identity the Key to Proving the Bible

As Christians and parents, how can you convince your children of the Truth of the Bible, and the faithfulness of our God, unless you teach them the truth of our Israel Identity?  Ministers tell millions of our young people that the Jews are "God's Chosen People," that there are supposedly fewer Israelites today than there were over 2000 years ago, and that the Old Testament is about other people, the Jews.  They are totally unable to show the relevance of the Scripture to our race, our nation, or our time, when the truth of the matter is that the Scripture is primarily about our race, our nation and our time! "Hear, ye deaf; and look ye blind, that ye may see.  Who is blind, but My servant?"

Let's tell our children the truth about Israel, that we the Anglo-Saxon, Celtic, Germanic, and kindred peoples are the true descendants of the twelve sons of Israel, and that our great nation and the great Christian nations of Europe are the nations promised to the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  Let us prove to them that we have a covenant-keeping God, that the Bible is the Word of God, that it is true, and we have been Redeemed by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.  As a minister, I can say that nothing will open up the Bible, or prove its Truth, like the true identity of Israel today!

Old Jerusalem to be Occupied by the Enemy at the End of the Age

We have already seen that God was to make Jerusalem as Shiloh.  One of the things that was to happen to Shiloh was, "and thou shalt see an enemy in My habitation" (1 Sam. 2:32).  This did happen to Shiloh, and if God's Word is True, it must happen to the old city of Jerusalem.

Ezekiel saw the same thing, for we read in Ezekiel 36:12, "Also thou son of man, prophesy unto the mountains [nations] of Israel, and say, ye mountains of Israel, hear the Word of the Lord: Thus saith the Lord God: Because the enemy hath said against you, Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession."  Now, who possesses the places of worship of ancient Israel?  Not the true Israel people, but the Jews.  God goes on to say, "Surely in the fire of My jealousy, have I spoken against the residue of the heathen, and against all Idumea [Edom], which have appointed my land into their possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey."

The Jewish Encyclopedia, Vol. 5, page 41, 1925, says, "Edom is in Modern Jewry."  Again, who has old Jerusalem, Palestine, and the "ancient high places" in their possession?
