why YEHOVAH God Must Rule

The Messiah said: "You (the Twelve Apostles) have not chosen me, but I have chosen YOU, and ordained YOU..." (John 15:16).

Nearly two thousand long years ago, "Jesus came into Galilee preaching the Gospel of the KINGDOM OF God," the good news of the GOVERNMENT of God (Mark 1:14). The Messiah continually spoke of the Kingdom of YEHOVAH God which he revealed would literally be set up on this earth.

In the near future the nations of this earth are going to see first-hand what the wonderful government of YEHOVAH God Almighty is like. They will be utterly amazed, There will be no more Communism, no more Fascism. His government will not be left in the hands of the ignorant masses of people (see Daniel 2:44, 7:27). YEHOVAH's government will be the Supreme Authority ruled by YEHOVAH God Himself from Jerusalem, Palestine (Jeremiah 3:17; Joel 2:32; Zechariah 2:12, 8:20-23, 14:16-19).

As an example: Yeshua the Messiah will rule over the nation of Israel and, evidently, King David will be resurrected to serve under him (Ezekiel 34:23, 37:24, 25; Jeremiah 30:9; Hosea 3:5). UNDER DAVID will be the TWELVE APOSTLES who will rule over the Twelve Tribes of Israel (Matthew 19:28). Under them will be the lesser rulers, the then-made-immortal Christian Israelites ruling in lesser offices of authority (see Luke 19:12-19). "And he [of Israel] that OVERCOMETH, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give POWER over the nations [of Israel]: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received [authority to rule Israel] of my Father" (Revelation 2:26, 27. See also Revelation 5:10; Isaiah 30:19-21; Psalm 149:4-9).

In the soon-corning Millennial age (the World Tomorrow) the nations will at last learn YEHOVAH's government! They will then learn that YEHOVAH God Almighty rules the whole universe through His "holy," "perfect" and "royal law of liberty" (Psalm 19:7-9; Proverbs 6:23; Romans 6:12,14; James 1:25, 2:8), The Ten Commandments comprise the heart and core of YEHOVAH's royal law!

Result of YEHOVAH God's Government? -- Utopia!

It is only when mankind has learned to voluntarily submit to the wise government (or rule) of the Supreme Creator-Ruler of the universe, that man will at last be blessed with real peace, happiness, health, joy and overflowing goodness and abundance -- beyond description! Also, this is the only way by which mankind can ever receive eternal life.

In the very near future, the righteous, all-wise, all-powerful government of YEHOVAH God will be established on this earth. YEHOVAH God will rule all nations with a rod of iron (Revelation 19:15). Then the whole earth will be at peace and will bask in indescribable prosperity (see Isaiah 2, 9, 11; Zechariah 14).

"And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD's house (YEHOVAH's Kingdom) shall be established in the top of the mountains (kingdoms), and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of HIS WAYS, and we will walk in HIS PATHS: for out of Zion shall go forth the LAW, and the WORD OF THE LORD [YEHOVAH God] from Jerusalem. And He [YEHOVAH God] shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning-hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more" (Isaiah 2:2-4) .

YEHOVAH God, the Supreme King, will rule over the Kingdom of YEHOVAH God -- over the territory of the whole earth. All the people of the world will be His subjects and the LAW of YEHOVAH God will be His government!

"How lovely on the mountains are the feet of Him who brings good news, Who announces peace and brings good news of happiness, Who announces salvation, and says to Zion, 'Your God Reigns!' YEHOVAH has bared His holy arm in the sight of all the nations, that all the ends of the earth may see the salvation of our God" (Isaiah 52:7, 10).

"The earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea" (Isaiah 11:9).

Here, at last, we see a true, soon-to-be-fulfilled utopian picture of WORLD PEACE -- YEHOVAH God's way! True PEACE, PROSPERITY and HAPPINESS through the perfect, WORLD-RULING GOVERNMENT of the SUPREME, CREATOR-RULER GOD!

When you see the sin and the wretchedness (which the governments of man have produced); and when you compare this with YEHOVAH's perfect government -- which will at last bring about a Utopia -- then you, too, will cry out "Thy KINGDOM come. Thy WILL be done IN EARTH, as it is in heaven"! (Matthew 6:10).

At first glance these passages tend to confirm that foreigners will become one with Israel as one people, that YEHOVAH's blessing upon Israel will overflow to other races. While it is true that foreigners are blessed in their being joined to Israel, it is the manner in which they will be blessed that most churches fail to understand. They will be blessed as becoming "servants and handmaids"! This we clearly see in Isaiah 14:

[...]

Mercy is “on Jacob” and this excludes all the other races. The meaning of foreigners being “joined” to Israel says nothing about mercy to foreigners; “joined” having a different meaning. So, as we read on, many passages confirm that those joining themselves to Israel become “servants and handmaids” to Israelites. “Possess”, as in “shall possess them”, has the meaning of “take possession”. Israel takes “possession” of the foreigners.

The “people”, as a congregation is one unit, comprising of masters and servants, just as the “church in the wilderness” under Moses was, where the “congregation of the LORD” (edah) was comprised of Israelites, together with the “mixed multitude”. In the wilderness the two groups, within the one unit, were treated the same in regard to Law, but were treated differently in temple service, with only the cahal (Israelites) being able to attend the tabernacle.

Although the Messiah was talking with Israelites when he said that the rain falls upon the good and the bad, it is obvious that the laws of science apply equally to all races, regardless of racial origins or racial mixtures. These laws of science are “laws of God” and therefore anyone of any race has the physical and mental benefit of obeying them. We are told clearly in Romans 3:19 "now we know that whatsoever things the law saith is said to them that are under the Law"; that is they are said only to Israel as those who were given the Law.

But there is more to this than meets the eye. The words of YEHOVAH God can be misapplied and misdirected when they are known. Would teaching the Word of YEHOVAH God assist in providing a right direction? But, to what degree could the Word be heard? We are told that the Edomites cannot “hear” and that the Canaanite races are to be exterminated or separated completely. If we are told nothing specific about the non-Israelite races as a total group, how then can anyone presume anything? One thing we are told is that the good seed can “hear” YEHOVAH's Word.

We do hear stories of missionary activity where there are great deliverances among non-Israel races after telling them about the miracles the Messiah did. On appeal to emotions alone, we are told about persons being healed and delivered from oppression, but who have no change in conscience and who have no shame for their past misdeeds. It seems that something is not written on their hearts. They seem to continue on as long as the missionary or the helper is with them; but if they are no longer assisted, then they either revert to paganism or go into a Catholic type of belief which is compromised with paganism or superstition.

The missionary activity of the churches is based upon their need to “witness” their religion. But there is NO SUCH requirement in the Bible! For example, YEHOVAH God said that Israel will ALWAYS be a nation before Him. The people of the nation are not required to do anything to “witness” what YEHOVAH God said -- the very fact that they continue to live and die is witness enough. The revelation of Israel at the end of this age will be witness to the veracity of YEHOVAH’s word. To spend time, money and effort in missionary activity to other races is an exercise in stupidity from the Biblical point of view and one for which no reward will be tendered.

We know there are some people whom the Bible says will NEVER be resurrected:

[Jeremiah 51:57 and Hebrews 4:3]

The first reference covers all who are under the heading of Babylon, which in connection with Revelation, we see is all who are opposed to Israel. The second reference covers all those Israelites that YEHOVAH God sent into the wilderness to perish forever because of their refusal to believe Him.

We also know from Biblical statement that no one can enter the Kingdom of YEHOVAH God unless they are of Israel. Therefore, it means that people of other races have no eternal life in the Kingdom and if there is no eternal life in the Kingdom, there is no eternal life of any kind available to them. It is not a case of them being “condemned”; it is simply a matter of them having no eternal life. Unworthy Israelites will die, be resurrected, condemned and have their spirit taken from them (this is the message of the parable of the Ten Talents). Their lifeless bodies will be destroyed in the Lake of Fire. This should be a matter of concern to every individual Israelite. But if someone of another race is to die and never to be resurrected, what does it matter to them once they are dead? There is no awareness in the grave, only corruption of the body. If you go to sleep and do not wake up until lunchtime tomorrow, you will not know what time the sun rose. If you die in your sleep, you will not know you are dead.

Life after death is a mystical vision for most races and involves speculation about a fabulous harem for Arabs on the one hand, through to re-incarnation for the Hindus, on the other. The Bible tells us nothing about the resurrected life other than that we cannot even begin to imagine it. If we care about it, as Israelites, we will strive to attain it and will receive it. If we care not, we will see it momentarily and know absolute remorse, panic and terror as we face oblivion in the Lake of Fire. But once that occurs, we will know nothing and will be the same as any non-Israelite who dies. There is no such thing as Hell and eternal punishment -- only life and oblivion.

These things are not spelt out in black and white in the Bible, but they are the corollaries of what is spelt out for Israel and Israel only.

One of the things peculiar to Western Society (as opposed to any others) is the teaching that racism is totally wrong. Yet, those who seek to enforce anti-discrimination laws (which include race, racial and national or ethnic origins, and religion) will immediately jump to the support of modern Jewry, as a special religious-racial group, even if modern Jewry is made up of people from many different races. In New Zealand people are actively discouraged from even questioning events of history that might undermine the enforcers’ determination of history in regard to “The Jews”. Their determination is very important to them, and, as such, is in itself racist. What is it that they are trying so hard to either protect or to promote? Might it be their false presentation that the Jews are Israel? Might not this be a mechanism by which the prince of this world seeks to eliminate the right message of the Bible? This is the master deception of Satan.

Would it not be Satan who is saying that the Potter does not make one vessel unto honor and another to dishonor, as Scripture says? Anti-racism is saying that every person of every race is the same in the eyes of man, and in Satan’s religious doctrines, this is the same in the eyes of YEHOVAH God. The issue is multi-culturism -- and this does not feature favorably through the Bible pages. Mixture of cultures is a source of conflict, both in religion and custom. Israel was separated from the other races, for a purpose. For Israel the Biblical message is still, "come ye out from amongst them, and be ye separate, saith the LORD" in the New Testament. The people being addressed in Corinthians had the “fathers” and were "baptized unto Moses" (1 Corinthians 4:1). They were Israelites!

Jeremiah 10:2, 3: "This saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen,…"

The "way" is derek which Strong's gives as "course of life, or mode of action." We should not be teaching indigenous culture in our schools.

Not one person can read the Old Testament without agreeing that YEHOVAH God is shown to be totally racist. YEHOVAH discriminated on the grounds of race and YEHOVAH God clearly treated races differently -- and even made differences between the tribes of Israel themselves.

The Children of Israel had a mission to eliminate the Canaanite races right down to women, children and even their animals. There are those whom YEHOVAH God says He will eliminate when the Messiah returns "at the brightness of his coming." The matter has to be faced; YEHOVAH God was totally racist in the Old Testament and we understand that He is unchanging for all time.
