Romans, by Gordon H. Clark.

The Future of Israel (11:1-36)

Hath God then cast away His people forever? Not at all. First, His people, in the sense of those individuals whom He foreknew, God has not cast away. This does not mean all the Jews. For as it was in the time of Elijah, so now the elect are a remnant. Election is of grace, not of works, so that while the remnant obtained grace, the rest were blinded. God gave them the spirit of slumber and caused them to stumble in order to bring salvation to the Gentiles.

Of course, no one would suppose that God would cast away the remnant elected by grace. But there is also another sense in which God will not cast off His people. The Jews as a race still figure in God’s plan and they will have a glorious future. For if the impoverishment of the Jews in the first century enriched the Gentiles, the return of the Jews in the future will produce much greater blessing. It will be like life from the dead.

The history of the Church can be illustrated by an olive tree. Some of its original natural branches were broken off so that branches from a wild olive tree could be grafted in. This, of course, is no compliment or ground of boasting for the Gentiles. And if God did not spare the natural branches because of their unbelief, the Gentiles should take heed lest God spare not them also. Furthermore, if God has grafted in wild branches, is it not all the more certain that He will graft back the natural branches at some future date?

The blindness of the Jews is to continue until the “fulness [sic] of the Gentiles” be come in. This fulness may indicate a time when the great majority of Gentiles then living shall have been converted. Virtually the whole world will be Christian. Such an interpretation makes a proper contrast with “all Israel” in the next verse. Or “the fulness of the Gentiles” might possibly refer to a time when all the Gentiles whom God has chosen for salvation, even though not a majority, have been saved and God will save no more of them. At any rate, when this fulness occur, then the great majority of the Jews shall be saved also. This ultimate conversion of the Jews was prophesied in the Old Testament.

“O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and his ways past finding out! . . . For of him, and through him, and to him are all things: to whom be glory forever. Amen” (11:22, 36)

Unregenerate Christians are self-idenfied and not God-identified, therefore, they hate the doctrine that God has sovereignly elected some people for salvation. They misrepresent what Scripture clearly teaches, which is that God calls many, and of the many called a “few are chosen.”

To their way of thinking, a God who sovereignly chooses to save only the few and punish the many is not only an unjust judge but is also an evil monster. They say a God who saves only the elect and damns everyone else is unfair and unloving and bears a closer resemblance to the pagan deities of antiquity than to the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob.

If Scripture is God’s written Word and the Christian’s authority for all matters of faith and practice, then what it teaches about God is what is true, regardless of what people understand or believe is fair, just, and loving.

According to Scripture, God destroyed everyone in the world except for Noah and his family; He also destroyed everyone in Sodom and Gomorrah and surrounding cities except for Lot and his daughters. The question unregenerate Christians must answer is how can God destroy the entire world and its inhabitants, annihilate the cities on the plain and everyone in them, save only a few chosen people, and remain a loving God?

Scripture also says that God chose Israel above all people to be His treasured possession and servants on the earth, and He knows only Israel among all the families of the world. The question facing unregenerate Christians is how is it fair for God to choose Israel over all the nations and the Israelites over all people on the earth and make them His people, His servants, and His witnesses?

The Scripture is clear that God does not love every person equally. Paul writes in Romans that God loved Jacob and hated his brother Esau before the twin boys were born and had done any good or evil. In addition Paul writes that God decreed the elder would serve the younger, and that He elected Jacob instead of Esau to receive his father’s blessing when the birthright really belonged to Esau as the elder brother.

Paul clearly says that God cursed and hated Esau before the boy had been born or had done anything evil, so that “the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth.” The question for the unregenerate Christian is how is it right and just for God to hate and punish an unborn child before he’s born, and has done anything to warrant it?

In the same chapter of Romans Paul writes that God raised up Pharaoh to destroy him; and He hardened Pharaoh’s heart so that God’s power and name would be known and declared throughout the world.

It’s clear from Romans that God does what He pleases and no man can call Him to account or make Him responsible for anything He does. God is accountable to no one. He is bound by nothing. He has “mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.”

Paul writes the potter has power over the clay to make from the same lump a vessel for honor and another for dishonor. Man was created to glorify God, and God is glorified through the vessels He has made. Everything God created is for His pleasure.

God is sovereign creator; what He does is just for nothing can constrain Him, and no law is above Him. God’s defining characteristic is holiness, not love; He is righteousness and justice. Who can hold Him responsible and say He is wrong in what He does? “Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct him? he that reproveth God, let him answer it.”

The law is man’s taskmaster, not God’s. God is bound by nothing, no law constrains Him. He created the law. He cannot be judged by it. God is judge, and His judgments are righteous.

Man has no rights to which God must acknowledge and acquiesce. “Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou?”

The truth is the unregenerate Christian’s interpretation of Scripture is a direct assault against God’s sovereignty, and he can’t believe what the Scripture clearly teaches because the unregenerate “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.”

Why the Pope’s Upcoming Historic Visit to the United States Is Significant

By Jerry A. Kane

On Wednesday, September 23, Pope Francis, the 266th pontiff to head the Roman Catholic Church, will meet with Barack Hussein Obama at the White House in Washington DC.

AgeCover171

For practitioners of Judaism, September 23 is Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement, the most important day in the Jewish calendar. It is the holiest, most solemn religious fast day of the year. In biblical times, only on Yom Kippur could the high priest enter the Holy of Holies in the Temple to make atonement for the sins of the whole nation of Israel in one day (Leviticus 16).

But for Christendom and the Western World, which adopted Pope Gregory XIII’s 1582 Gregorian calendar, September 23 is the 266th day of the year, which incidentally is the same number of days it takes a woman to give birth to a child from the moment of conception.

On Thursday, September 24, the Roman pontiff will give a historic address before a joint session of the U.S. Congress.

“On that day, he will become the first leader of the Holy See to address a joint meeting of Congress. It will be a historic visit, and we are truly grateful that Pope Francis has accepted our invitation,” said John Boehner (R-OH) Speaker of the House, in a statement

Then on the second leg of his US trip, September 25, the Pope will travel to New York City to speak before the United Nations General Assembly. After his speech, the General Assembly will convene a high-level plenary meeting to adopt a new sustainable development agenda, which was mandated by the General Assembly September 2013 (Resolution 68/6).

The UN’s new sustainable development agenda, also known as the 2030 Agenda, will replace Agenda 21, the UN’s sustainable development action plan adopted at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992.

Unlike Agenda 21, which primarily focused on the environment, “this new universal Agenda” for humanity and the planet is a blueprint to “realize the human rights of all … achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women … and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and environmental.” In other words, the 2030 Agenda is the UN template for a world government.

[The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development] “can help realize the… dream of a world of peace and dignity for all. Today is the start of a new era. We have traveled a long way together to reach this turning point,” said Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations.

To recap, the 266th pope will meet Hussein I (peace be upon him) on the Day of Atonement, the 266th day of the year, which is the day before the pope’s historic address to Congress, and two days before he addresses the UN General Assembly and the announced birth of the one-world government.

At first blush it appears that Hussein I (peace be upon him) will be a bit player overshadowed by numerical coincidences, a historic, precedent-setting visit to Congress, and an unveiled blueprint for a new world order. But once the inexplicable lottery drawing that happened in Obama’s home state the day after he won the presidency in 2008 is taken into account, his role becomes evident.

On November 5, 2008, the Illinois daily lottery numbers were 666 for the pick three and 7779 for the pick four evening numbers. In biblical numerology, i.e., the study of numbers in the Bible, 666 is the number commonly associated with the man of sin or the Antichrist alluded to in 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 and the beast and the mark of the beast mentioned in Revelation chapter 13.

The number 7 signifies completion or perfection, and the number 9 signifies divine finality or judgment. The odds of these two sets of numbers being randomly drawn in Obama’s home state on the same day the day after his election is more than a 1/3,650,000,000 probability, which means it’s a statistical impossibility. One could rightly conclude that either the Illinois lottery was rigged, or God has sent a sign to His people concerning the identity of Antichrist, the end of the age, and coming judgment.

Surely some revelation is at hand;

Surely the Second Coming is at hand.

The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out

When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi

Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;

A shape with lion body and the head of a man,

A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,

Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it

Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.

There you have it; now do with it what you will.

Iran Deal Would Require US to Defend Iran against Israel

By Jerry A. Kane

While discussing the Iran deal on the Today Show, the Secretary of State and husband of Teresa Hines, John “Lurch” Kerry said that an Israeli preemptive strike on Iran would be “a huge mistake with grave consequences for Israel.”

Kerry tried to downplay concerns that clauses in the Iran deal would require the US to secure Iran’s nuclear facilities and defend the terrorist nation against an Israeli preemptive attack.

“[F]aced with a choice between defending Israel and defending the Iran deal, it is become clear that under some circumstances, the Obama administration would choose the latter. That is a radically different position from the one Obama took in public just a short time before formal negotiations began,” Breitbart News.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio also pointed out that part of the Iran deal could force the US into the position of helping Iran defend itself against Israel.

“At the last minute, they [Iran negotiators] were able to get all sorts of outrageous concessions including … we have to help Iran protect itself against sabotage. If any other country tries to undermine their nuclear program, we have to help them defend themselves against Israel, Egypt, Saudis, our own allies.”

The Iran deal also has been roundly criticized in the Israeli media.

“One of the clauses in the nuclear deal reached between world powers and Iran last week guarantees that the world powers will assist Iran in thwarting attempts to undermine its nuclear program,” Israel Hayom.

A preemptive strike against Iran would not be the first time Israel had preemptively attacked a country without U.S. support. Ronald Reagan condemned Israel’s attack against Iraq in 1981, and George W. Bush opposed Israel’s strike against Syria in 2007.

In the past, Hussein I (peace be upon him) has leaked Israeli attack plans to Iran thus neutralizing Israel’s preemptive capacity. However, with the concessions made in the Iran deal, he could mandate something far worse for Israel.

Unfortunately, there are countless traitors within the American political community who speak out of both sides of their mouths. And some of the fork-tongued politicians are Jews who claim they support Israel, yet they are in reality self-hating, Kapo Jews who would feel no remorse if the Jews in Israel were wiped out by the Iranians.

For more on the story, see U.S., Israel on Collision Course if Iran Deal Goes Through, Marco Rubio says Iran deal means we have to help defend Iran from Israel or other allies, and Nuclear deal will see powers ‘help Iran protect facilities’.

The media condemned the Ferguson Police Department for waiting days to release the Mike Brown strong-arm robbery video claiming that the “protesters” might not have rioted had they known that Brown was the prime suspect in a robbery that occurred 10 minutes before he was shot and killed by a white police officer.

It turns out that Hussein’s Attorney General, Eric “the red” Holder was the reason the cops had withheld the video for so long. Holder had been pressuring them all week not to release the robbery video, or to even tell anyone about it because he deemed it too “inflammatory” to be seen. I’m no lawyer, but isn’t trying to hide exculpatory evidence illegal?

It was only after Hussein pressured Democrat Governor Jay Nixon to remove the Ferguson cops from the case and replace with them with the state Highway Patrol and its black captain that the fed-up Ferguson cops defied Holder and released the Mike Brown video.


SHOCK Report: DOJ Asked Ferguson Police Not to Release Mike Brown Robbery Video


The youtube video below shows 18-year-old Michael Brown’s “strong-arm” robbery of cigars from the Ferguson Market and Liquor store in Ferguson, Missouri. The video shows “Big Mike” shoving and intimidating a much smaller store clerk as he is about to walk out of the door with the cigars.

The release of the video discredited the mainstream media’s and some alternative media outlet’s narrative of an innocent, saintly gentle giant walking to grandma’s house when a racist cop blew him away.

The video also shows Dorian Johnson accompanying Brown in the convenience store. Johnson said he saw the shooting and that Brown had raised his hands to surrender, and he was shot in the back.


Michael Brown ‘Strong-Arm’ Robbery Video Before Shooting – Ferguson, Missouri


Before he called in the National Guard, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon attempted to appease Hussein and Ferguson’s lawless mobs, which have been exploiting the Michael Brown shooting, by removing the Ferguson Police Department from the case and putting Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri Highway Patrol in charge.

Instead of defusing the situation, Johnson’s decision to sympathize with the “protesters,” has intensified the resentment for the Ferguson cops and Officer Darren Wilson who shot and killed Michael Brown.

Johnson spoke at the Greater Grace Church to more than a thousand people gathered to remember Brown, and said meeting “Big Mike’s” family “brought tears to my eyes.”

“To the family of Michael Brown, I want you to know that my heart goes out to you and that I am sorry. I wear this uniform, so I’m standing up here to say I’m sorry. This is my neighborhood. You are my family. You are my friends and I am you.

When this is over, I am going to go in my son’s room. My black son. Who wears his pants sagging. Wears his hat cocked to the side. Got tattoos on his arms. But that’s my baby.”—Ron Johnson, Missouri Highway Patrol captain

Here’s a photo of Captain Ron Johnson and friend flashing a gang sign:

Here’s a photo of Captain Ron Johnson marching for justice in Ferguson, Missouri, with “Bloods” street gang members:

Here’s a photo of Captain Ron Johnson and New Black Panther Party leader Malik Zulu Shabazz. Shabazz is a black nationalist with a history of anti-Semitic remarks and racist accusations about the inherent evil of white people.

“Kill every goddamn Zionist in Israel! Goddamn little babies, goddamn old ladies! Blow up Zionist supermarkets!”—Malik Zulu Shabazz, speaking at the protest of B’nai B’rith International in Washington, DC (2002)

“Our rise is co-dependent on the white man’s demise.”—Malik Zulu Shabazz, speaking at the national Black Power Summit in Atlanta, Georgia (2007)


The mainstream media have portrayed Michael Brown as a good kid headed for college and a gentle giant who wouldn’t hurt anyone. But the truth is “Big Mike” Brown was a bully and gang member who committed a “strong-arm” robbery at a convenience store ten minutes before being shot by police. His accomplice, 22-year-old Dorian Johnson, was a fugitive with an outstanding police warrant.

In his spare time, “Big Mike” wrote Rap lyrics, and here’s a sample of his genius:

I’ll be counting money by myself

I’m a rich nigga so I got that wealth

I f*** three … hos by myself

While I’m smoking on this …

When the sun goes down

You in trouble now

Here’s another sample:

Smoking on this dope, till I choke

Motherf***ers

Motherf***er, f*** you and your opinions

Do you do smoke weed, keep doing what you do best

And another:

Every time I call your bitch I make her cum

And when she comes I’m cumming all over her tush

I beat that pussy up

I’m smoking purple

I roll fat blunts they look just like my thumb

While I bless him with a d*** on his face

Last one:

With this Glock in your face

And you betta not make a sound

And I only like white men on my money …

Those who are last shall be first,

Whites on the bottom

He musta walked up and unloaded because there was no stopping him

Somebody else layin’ across the street, must be his partner

Damn.

Here’s a montage of “Big Mike” flashing gang signs:

Without Stiff Sanctions, Israel Will Attack Iran

If “crippling sanctions” are not introduced by Christmas, “Israel will strike” Iran warned Ephraim Sneh, former Israeli Deputy Defense Minister in a Sunday Times interview.

Sneh told the newspaper that time is running out for Iran and that Israel will fight alone if it must.

“If we are left alone, we will act alone,” Sneh said.

Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations, Mohammad Khazaee, wrote a letter of protest to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moonin in response to Sneh’s remarks.

“There is no explanation for Israel’s continuing threats against Tehran,” Khazaee said.

Khazaee said that Sneh’s remarks were “irresponsible” and that he hoped the UN would take steps against such threats.
