QUESTION: (From the tape circuit) What is meant by a Kingdom of Priests and do we have any Biblical record of this Priesthood?
ANSWER: It is very curious, I don’t know what I might have said on one of these tapes that brought these questions. But the passage where they have taken their question is in the writings of I Peter 2:9; ‘For ye are a chosen generation, and a royal Priesthood, a holy nation, and a peculiar people that you should show forth the praises of HIM who called you out of darkness into His marvellous Light.’
Now; in this instance it is ‘Ye are a chosen generation’, .the word is progeny, not generation. You are a select, chosen progeny (children) an elect Priesthood and a holy nation. And this particularly belongs to the one people of the entire Scripture. This again is to the people called Israel, or the Adamic race. They were not only foreknown according to the purposes of God but were elect according to His foreknowledge from before the foundation of the world. So by this declaration the head of each family was a Priest. Each had a family Priest. And in the eighth chapter of Genesis we note that the head of that household, Noah built an altar unto YAHWEH and he was fulfilling the Patriarchal Priesthood duties. ‘Noah took of every clean beast and fowl and offered burnt offerings on the altar.’ This was Noah’s responsibility as Patriarchal Priest for his household. Adam was a Patriarchal Priest for his household, then after him Seth, and each was responsible for carrying on this duty for their household, as to the carrying out of the ritual of sacrifice.
WE HAVE QUESTIONS COMING IN FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD AND LAST WEEK WE RECEIVED A QUESTION ABOUT THE PRIESTHOOD, and they wanted to know the relationship of the King and the Priest in the Holy Nation, thus we decided to use this question in our bible study for tonight. This is basically founded on the fact that we being the offspring of the MOST HIGH GOD, and occupying a physical body which is our earthly Temple as an individual, is connected symbolically to this Temple which Moses was instructed to have the children of Israel build with its Inner Holy of Holies, and with a central Court, and an outer Court, for THIS WAS THE IMAGE OF MAN. The outer Court being the physical body, and the activities of service done in the outer Court is the work done in the world, physically, for the Kingdom.
The Inner Court has the area of revelation and here was the Molten Sea. As the Priest’s looked into the clear water they watched as they said: “Hallelujah”, and as their voices rippled the water they were to discern or see in the water the image of the thing revealed by the spirit, in the Holy of Holies.
The Holy of Holies was where the Ark of the Covenant rested, and in the Ark of the Covenant resided the Law, and the Abiding presence of the MOST HIGH YAHWEH, in His Shekinah Glory was standing over the Ark, and in fact it was radiantly covering this Ark with Glory.
QUESTION: I am searching for some kind of an interpretation of born of the water and of the spirit?
ANSWER: It seems that they were getting some kind of information that says this has something to do with baptism. This piece of scripture has nothing to do with baptism. In fact this is based on the conversation between Jesus and Nicodemus (John 3). You will remember that Nicodemus was a teacher in charge of a phase of theological instruction in Judea. He was an Israelite and having heard of the teaching of Jesus he wanted to interview Him.
Also being a wise man he came to see Jesus at night, and this wasn’t cowardice on his part, but instead he was using a little discretion because as a doctor of theology, if he had come in the day time and interviewed Jesus and had accepted His doctrine before others heard it there might have some imputing of his right to teach. So for that reason then Nicodemus came to see Jesus at night and one of the most important things he asked Jesus was concerning how a man could enter into or participate in the Kingdom of heaven.
QUESTION: People say that Paul was a Jew. Now I know that he was not a Jew, but how do I prove it?
ANSWER: We could spend all night on that. The King James Version of the Bible does not separate in translation, the difference between a Benjaminite and other people not of Israel, who lived in that area. Now, Paul said that he was an Israelite of the tribe of Benjamin but of the sect of the Jews. In other words, he grew up under the theological teachings of the Jews who were in control of the places of worship, and what they called Judaism or the religion of that time, and had perverted and twisted this priesthood. It had been twisted by Canaanites, Amalakites, Hittites, and other ‘ites’. And thus Jesus said that this priesthood was of the children of the devil and the work of their father, the devil, they would do. And that they had been brought in to destroy. And Jesus accused them of being guilty of all the righteous blood slain from Abel to Zachariah.
Now, remember that there was total hostility between Christ and Jewry. But not between Christ and the people who were from Judah and Benjamin who lived in Palestine. These of Judah and Benjamin were under control of an evil administration that had taken over the priesthood there in Judea.
In other words, the people of the tribe of Judah and Benjamin who lived in Palestine were entrapped in a theological area of error. Because these false priests had taken over their religion. Even though these people may never have left the main facet of their faith and still believed in the true God, who was YAHWEH, and still looked for the manifestation of the Messiah, who was to be YAHWEH in the flesh as YAHSHUA, Jesus.
QUESTION: Can you tell me in the Bible what day we are to observe as the Sabbath? How do we really know which day is the Sabbath?
ANSWER: Well we can come to the first day of the equinox, then the seventh day thereafter the equinox, that was the day thereafter for the Sabbath unto Israel under the old Testament law. The Adventist today hold that Saturday is the seventh day therefore Saturday is the Sabbath. However it would be hard to, and rather impossible for them to have given you a seventh day from the creation Sabbath because they don’t even know the time involved in that period, whether 1000 years, or 10,000 years or 20,000 years so how could they say every seventh day thereafter. They tell you they are working from day one, the Creative Sabbath, but this is not true. It is impossible for anyone to denote or carry forward an accurate measure, so this is not the procedure by which the Sabbath is kept.
The only Sabbath given in the Old Testament was the one given to Moses. Then when they came to the end of the year then all the extra days thereafter as they came up to the Equinox was a Sabbath unto them, so they had a whole week of Sabbaths some times, and then they would start out with a new moon. So the time changed, some years it might be a Wednesday, sometimes a Saturday, and sometimes it might come out on Friday and so forth. But the Christians have not tried to keep that kind of a Sabbath.
THE PLAN FOR ATLANTIC UNION SURFACED IN WASHINGTON, D.C. this week and even Barry Goldwater and Richard Nixon supported it. Paul Finley a Republican representative, said that this would be good for America, although America would have to give us one of her sovereignty, but the United States would no longer stand alone. All the NATO nations would then be linked together. More Republicans came out for the idea of an Atlantic Union, putting the Republicans farther left than the Democrats. (In 1969) Dr. Swift supported Nixon and was sure that he had changed his mind on Atlantic Charter. As the drive for a One World Government gained speed, so also did the movement to oppose it. Thus party leaders are still trapped in their thinking, but the ‘Right Wing’ is growing in its resistance.
Our leaders did not advocate joining with the whole world. They only wanted to join with the NATO members who are the Western Christian nation of God’s Kingdom. But the fly in the ointment is this little nation of Israeli a ‘5th column’ in God’s Kingdom.
Last week in our meeting, we had several representatives from several of the African countries. And they tell us that the money coming into Africa to be used to supply the arms used against the White people of Africa, comes from the Jewish bankers. Even the Red Chinese leaders go home by way of Israeli.
QUESTION: Would you discuss the Sphinx?
ANSWER: The Sphinx is a symbolic Temple and it has its relationship to the Masonic Order. There are areas of Masonry that can tell you much about the Sphinx. We can cite that as far as the Builders of the Pyramid were concerned that they built the Sphinx first. Then they built the Great Pyramid after they had first built the Sphinx. The Builders of each were the people who lived in the city of ON. And of course the Temple of On and the people of On who were originally settled there were divided by 12 areas in which were allotted to them to live, each according to their time and their measure.
They then built the Sphinx before the Pyramid and the Sphinx was an Incumbent Lion (lying down) with a human head. It signified the recognition that the Lion of Tribe of Judah would be the ruler of the nations. Actually the other people of Egypt did not know what the Lion stood for, but the people who built it understood all the symbolism.
Never in all the areas of Egyptian history were the native Egyptians able to figure out the Lion, or understand what it represented. The symbol of the Mystery of the Pyramid has its sequel inside the Sphinx. There are 33 steps which lead down from the door in the front of the Sphinx. And there is an Amphitheatre that is held up with 10 Pillars.
And the 33 steps are also equivalent with the 33 years in the life of Christ, as well as the Amphitheatre with the 10 Pillars, and this door opens into a circular room, and it has 2 Pillars standing within it. This is equivalent to the 12 Tribes of Israel and their division. The builders of the Pyramid knew this when they built the Sphinx, and the Pyramid for the were one and the same Builders. (Ephraim and Manasseh were also symbolized here.)
QUESTION: Explain Judges 12:6;
ANSWER: Well, they would ask the Jews among them to say ’Shibboleth’ and when they said the word, ‘Shibboleth’, they would know that person was not an Israelite. At that time the Ephramites wanted to determine if some among them were true Judahites. And if they could say ‘Shibboleth’, then they were Israelites. But if they could not pronounce the ‘H’, they were the enemy and they slew them.
QUESTION: Concerning the 11th chapter of Daniel, verse 6, who were these kings and the kings daughters, and where are they located?
ANSWER: This passage referred to and is tied to in with the Assyrian king of that time. So we will start reading here in Daniel, chapter 11: ’In the first year of Darius the Mede, even I stood to confirm and to strengthen him. And now I will show thee the truth. Even now shall stand up yet three kings in Persia, and the fourth shall be far richer than all. And by his strength and through his riches, he shall stir up all against the realm of Greece.’ This is talking about Zerzes. And he was very wealthy and he hired people from Europe and from Rome, and people from the East, out of the Steppes, and he hurled them against Greece. He was stopped at the Marathon. Then; ’A mighty king shall stand up, and shall rule with a great dominion, and do according to his will.’ This is Alexander the Great. And he stood up with power to extend his kingdom as far east as China, and as far north as the Walls of China, and the Steppes of the North. And he went as far as India in the East also. He controlled all the land from Palestine to India.
QUESTION: What is the 28th., chapter of Ezekiel talking about?
“The word of the lord came again unto me saying, son of man say unto the Prince of Tyrus, thus saith the Lord God; because thine heart is lifted up and thou hast said: I am a God, I sit in the seat of God in the midst of the seas, yet thou art a man and not God, thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God, behold thou art wiser than Daniel, there is no secret that can be hid from me.”
These words come when Tyre is a very wicked city and the king of Tyre is Lucifer. In other words, Lucifer is here incarnate at this time. Now Lucifer can be incarnate in many ways, and he was embodied in various periods of time. Here he was as the King of Tyre, and so Ezekiel was told to say to Lucifer the above things, then also to say:-
“With thy great wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and has gotten gold and silver into thy treasures, by the greatness of thy wisdom and thy traffic, thou hast increased thy riches and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches.”
QUESTION: In the book of Ezra, in the 6th chapter and about the 7th verse, here it is talking about the House of God. Who is to let it alone?
ANSWER: Go back a bit. Here Darius the King, made a decree and a search was made in the House of the Rolls where the treasures were laid up in Babylon. And there was found in the palace, which is in the province of the Medes, a roll. And within a record was written. Therefore, in the first year of Cyrus the King, he made a decree about the House of God at Jerusalem. ‘Let the house be built, the place where they offered sacrifices, and let the foundations thereof be strongly laid; the height thereof of three score cubits and so forth.’
Now remember, that Darius was very friendly to Israel. And though he was a conqueror of the Medes and Persians, and had nothing in common with Israel, yet he was an Aryan.
Therefore, he said, ‘Let the golden and silver vessels of the House of God which Nebuchadnezzar brought to Babylon be restored and place them again in the House of God.’ And then he warned the enemies of Israel to let the House of God alone. ‘Let these Israelites rebuild this House of God in this place.’ And yes, we know that it is translated as ‘let the Jews and the elders of the Jews alone.’ But he was speaking of those of Judah who would go back to rebuild this House of God.
QUESTION: Will you please explain where the Negro came from? Do we have any evidence that they were pre-Adamic?
ANSWER: This is an interesting question. And we do have evidence that they are pre-Adamic. In the book of Seth, and as Enoch wrote, he referred to them as the ‘dark skinned people’ having come in with Lucifer in the days of this rebellion on the part of Lucifer. When Lucifer fought his war against God and against the household of God, which was you and I in the spiritual realm, before we became embodied in the physical world, as we were Children of YAHWEH, then Lucifer refused to acknowledge the children of God and was very incensed at the fact that anyone could be higher than himself. But, ’To which of the Angels did God ever say, ‘Thou art My son?’
In this instance Lucifer rebelled, and went out into the Universe, in that area which he controlled, and got axe men and swordsmen. These were Negroes who came out of one part of the Milky Way. Lucifer you see controlled 1/4 of the Universe, under YAHWEH and had been a good cooperating Angel until this rebellion rose up in him. So these were Negroes he gathered up out of the Milky Way and he taught to battle, and they were on his ships in the first recorded battle of this ancient war. Of course Michael was given command of the Hosts of the Most High.
QUESTION: Do we have a time table for the sinking of Atlantis, and the relationship to the coming of the white race?
ANSWER: The facts are sort of turbulent because the Continents did not sink all at once. In the areas of Lucifer’s being driven out of the heavens, and the areas of his battling and mongrelisation and mutations that were taking place in the earth, this situation existed for many thousands of years. But the actual sinking of Lemuria took place approximately 14,000 to probably 38,000 years B.C. actually, and this is how long it took for Lemuria to all go down section by section from one catastrophe to another. Some of the Islands were left as the final sinking occurred about 11,000 years before The Christ. And 11,000 years is also about right for the sinking of Atlantis. But of course the white race did not come from Atlantis or Lemuria.
In fact the Tungus people, the original creation, when God placed them in earth as men and women, they were somewhat Asiatic, or shall we say an Asiatic type. The Tungus people migrated out of Asia, migrated across Europe and on to Atlantis and Lemuria. They were the original people of earth. But during the period of Lucifer’s rebelling and being driven into earth he brought with him the Negroes, so the Negro was not on earth originally but were brought in here when Lucifer came. And he used them to intermingle and mongrelise the people of earth. The resulting conditions created by this work of Lucifer, created a pattern that was not good.
QUESTION: In the time of Enoch’s prophecy he had prophesied that there would be a star, a sign which would pass to the head of Virgo and then during the pregnancy of Mary, then Saturn and Jupiter would come into conjunction three times. Did this star have a name that came to the head of Virgo?
ANSWER: We have no name for it, and it may have been a comet but we do know that from the time it left the head of Achillea until it reached the head of Virgo that it was three years. The Savants had this time to watch this star, and to gather to the spot in Egypt. We have no name for the star, but we do know that it took three years for the crossing from Achillea to Virgo.
QUESTION: Well then how long before the birth of Christ did the Star appear?
ANSWER: Well three years and 9 months after it came through the head of Achillea, of course it may have been many, many miles from Achillea but this is the appearance that it gave as it formed its ecliptic.
QUESTION: When Enoch was taken into the heavens, how long was he away from the earth?
QUESTION: If the areas of the heavens are visible to the naked eye, then are any of the areas of the heavenlies or spiritual areas visible to the naked eye?
ANSWER: Well, this might seem a far fetched question but not quite as far out as you might think. We know that we do have one area of physical occupation of the earth for everything that God created, for He made it also in a physical creation, and this reaches out to the furthermost outskirts of the Universe into the sidereal systems, and the immensity where it was created out of the elements like that of earth. We have a spectroscopic analysis which takes the light rays from various suns and runs them through the spectroscopes and determines the chemicals, what they are made of.
And of course we have the spectroscope analysis of earth, but so far we haven’t come up with any new chemicals, but the entire Universe is made up of the same chemicals you have here in earth. These things are visible to the eye, and you can see the burning suns and look across the vastness of space and see these things. The MOST HIGH GOD has been creating for ages and ages, in fact there is no end, no period of time when HE WAS NOT CREATING for ages and ages, in fact there is no end. When John heard the sound of the trumpet and lifted up his head he heard these words: “I am Alpha and Omega, the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, the first, the last” and now John fell on his face, but he described this Glory of the MOST HIGH GOD. Then he heard these words: “Stand on your feet John, you were not afraid when you walked with ME in Galilee.” But HE was ALPHA AND OMEGA the beginning and the end, and there was no one before HIM, for HE is GOD. YAHWEH-YAHSHUA.
QUESTION: I have read that all Semites are not Israelites. That Gad, Asher, Dan, and Naphtali, were from servant girls and were not true Israelites. They were of mixed blood. How would that be reckoned?
ANSWER: This is not necessarily true. There are true Israelites. In fact, the tribe of Gad were the Romans. They were of the Lombards. And their skin is as white as anyone. There were many blonds as well as dark eyed Lombards. And they exist throughout all Italy. They are not as dark as some Italians, for there is a fusion of blood. But the true tribe of Gad is very, very white.
The question of Asher, Well, Asher is Sweden. And I think you would have a hard time proving that Asher wasn’t pure white, pure Israel. Even though they are confused today in the areas of their thinking and their politics, because a tremendous area of Socialism moved in, a lot of pressure has been put on them as they are trying to mongrelize Sweden and have brought in Negroes from areas of the British Colonies on some kind of an exchange operation. The true Swede is more or less staying clear of this although some are falling. We have the motion picture industry most forward in mixing the races anyhow. And today Sammy Davis Jr. is married to a Swedish girl and he talks about a polka dot child. But these are the kind that should be eliminated from the United States. But as far as Asher is concerned, Asher is true Israel.
Now, Dan is true Israel. Dan is not mixed up as other races. Early Dan went out to sea in ships. Dan was a seafaring nation and they did a lot of exploring. Then went up the Danube and the Deniper which have Dan’s name, as well as a lot of other places. In fact, the landing spot of Dan was in Denmark, or Dan’s land. They knew they were Israel and they have always held to the pattern of their identity. Very few Danes don’t know that they are Israel. So you have a pure stock there.
Here are some questions that have come in from our tape audience that I think that we should answer.
1. What evidence do we have that we pre‑existed before we were born
2. What did we do before we were born into the world?
3. If a man goes to heaven when he dies, then what evidence is there that he comes back?
In the first place as to the evidence of Pre‑existence let us turn to the 90th., Psalm: ‘Lord, thou has been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou has formed the earth, and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art Our YAHWEH‑God.’ This declaration does declare our pre‑existence through all generations, and of course all the generations of the Adamic race certainly before HE brought forth the mountains or the earth, HE was our dwelling place.
In the Gospel of John we find the pattern of pre‑existence. In chapter 17, we find that as Jesus lifts His eyes into the heavens He puts this prayer in the Scriptures as a more or less, teaching prayer. Here the Scripture says: ‘As thou has given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life as thou hast given him.’
QUESTION: What is the Biblical evidence for the superiority and supremacy of the White race. And is there any place in the scriptures to confirm this?
ANSWER: The entire theme of the old and new Testament is the story of the superiority of the white race. There are many passages that confirm this. In turning to the scriptures we always turn to the seventh chapter of Deuteronomy. Here in verse 6 is a statement made to the Adamic race, the white race, and this is the statement: ”Thou art a holy people unto the LORD thy God, the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all the people that are upon the face of the earth.”
This is speaking of the white race, thus this is white supremacy if you want proof. This is the pure seed of the Adamic race, and of course the word Adam means the race that can flush red in the face, and this is the highest strain of his race and they came out of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Now the other passage in Genesis II, God created in the seventh period, the Adamic race, the starting of the bodies for the Adamic race, while in Genesis I in the sixth day he created them male and female.
QUESTION: Is there any Judah blood still left in the Jews?
ANSWER: In the first place Judah blood was not in the Jews. There is only three places in the Old Testament where the word ‘Jew’ is used. This is Yehudin and they were referred to, or they used this because they were referring to and calling people, as of Judah when they were actually the abomination of Satan. This was not done until the King James Version of the Bible. They never called Abraham a Jew before this, they were always called Israelites.
Now; a whore tried to trap Judah, and then later tried to bring that offspring back into Israel, years later. But this offspring if it had been Judah’s would have by this time been married back into his mother’s people several times and there would have been no Judah blood there.
Actually the scripture would tell you that this was a trick for there was no Judah blood in the Jews. The Jews of Jesus’ time were Canaanite’s and if they came from Cain by no stretch of the imagination would there be any Judah blood. When Jesus said: (John 8) ‘ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do, your father was a murderer from the beginning’. He was talking about Cain, who was the first murderer as it effected our race. Jesus said: ‘I am from above, you are from beneath.
Question: Genesis claims God created Adam and not Eve for a while until Adam had a chance to look around and couldn’t find a mate, why did he do this?
Answer: So as to get it into the record.
Question: Well did God himself have to look around and find out that there was no mate for Adam?
Answer: Of course not.
Question: What are the origins of mankind distinguished from the Adamic race.
Answer: This of course is a rather heavily covered question, but when the Adamic man was begotten of God, remember we have in the Hebrew so many words which may come out somewhat the same, or are used for many words which are not interchangeable. The word Bara and Yastar are both words used for creation. But Bara in Hebrew means to begat, to bring out of the womb, or to form an issue thus a procreation of creation by birth. Yastar means to mould or make, like make something out of putty or create something. So to begin with these words existed.
QUESTION: What is the meaning of the serpent flying around the staff?
ANSWER: You mean the caduceus?
QUESTION: Well, the snake is supposed to be the symbol of the Jews, so why did the doctors choose it?
ANSWER: No, the Jews did not have anything to do with the doctors choosing that symbol. Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness when the people were murmuring. But the people of Israel were not Jews. None of these in the wilderness were Jews except a few who came out of Egypt, the mixed multitude. But the Jews were never Israelites. So Moses was told to make a brass serpent and put it on a pole and those who saw it would be healed. This is its start. The medical profession has two serpents with wings wound around the pole, the wings on top. This winged serpent was a sign of the medical profession and it came from the sign of Moses and the serpent on the pole. The medical profession then just designed these two serpents for a sign of their profession. Yes, the Jews are in the medical profession, the medical association. The Jews control it. The Fishbines ran it for instance, but I understand today that a Jew does not head it anymore. And there has been a lot of kickback on the Fishbines. But the Jews had nothing to do with the selection of this sign.
QUESTION: Leviticus 18:21. Who is Molech?
ANSWER: He was a fallen Angel, a war god. But human sacrifices were poured out to Molech to keep him from bringing punishment, revenge, from Lucifer back upon the people. When they didn’t worship Lucifer then Molech would punish them, so with living sacrifices they would pacify Molech who would pass it on to Lucifer.
QUESTION: I was thinking. If people everywhere were to die, then why did early church people pray that people live until Christ came?
ANSWER: I am not sure that they did. In other words, as far as everyone dying, they have accepted this down through the years and they die. but I don’t know that they prayed this at any particular period of time. We at the end of the age might pray this as we would like to see Christ come at this hour. In fact, unless they are elderly people then most will make it anyhow. But as to the scriptural position there is no known necessity from the standpoint of condemnation of people dying since Christ raised from the dead. “As from one man came death, by another came Life.” But the pattern is that people accept death and then as they finally accept they pass on.
QUESTION: I remember reading years ago that no one passes on until they accept it.
QUESTION: How can we produce different races since the flood covered all the earth and everybody drowned, how can we produce different races from the sons of Noah?
ANSWER: Well, we are sorry but someone has given you a bum steer. The flood did not cover all the earth at that time, and all races do not come from Ham, Shem and Japhet. The pattern is quite clear, when God sent that flood it was to cover all that Upper Tarim Basin and destroy those in that place who were Luciferian mongrel offspring. They were seizing, the women of the white race and forcing them to marry with them. There every thought was evil continually, and in the original Hebrew it says that God would not permit these people to destroy his race. The translation in the King James Version is not quite accurate, when it says that God repented that he had made man, He determined that he would not permit those people to destroy man which he had begotten. In the areas of the scripture it says God warned Noah of the coming flood.
Noah was a righteous man he came out of the Seth line of the House of Adam. You can trace the genealogy from Adam through Seth. You remember that after the seduction of Eve and the fall of the Adamic race that God drove them out of Eden and it was not until Seth was born that the Adamic Race was established as the House of God. Adam said: I have now begotten a man in my own image, in my own likeness, of my own race. And of course the cleansing of the womb had required seven gestations according to Biblical law. Then when Seth was born then on down the line came Enoch a descendent of Seth, and you come on down to Noah who was also directly descended from Seth. And Noah had three sons who were just like he and his wife, as white as Noah was.
QUESTION: Please explain “I will not blot out your name from the Lamb’s Book of Life.” A man who I have been listening to says no name can be added, but your name can be blotted out?
ANSWER: That is erroneous, it comes from mistranslation. This is contained in the message to the church ages in Revelation 3:5., to the church of Sardis: ‘He that overcometh the same shall be clothed with white raiment and I will not blot his name out of the Book of Life. I will confess his name before my father and before his Angels.’ This is a positive statement. In the Ferrar Fenton version it says: ‘To he who overcometh I give white raiment of righteousness because his name is written in the Book of Life from whence it can never be erased.’
This King James Version is still positive but the Ferrar Fenton says it can never be erased. And we believe it can never be erased because in the Book of Romans we have this: ‘Those He did foreknow He did predestine to conform to the image of the son.’ So He started a positive program. Chose the elect before the foundation of the world, and His children where destined to arise in His own image and eventually in the climax of this age they were to put on His righteousness. So to say that anyone can have his name erased out of the Book of Life would be very foolish.
We have a question that was sent in: Asking for the true mane of God.
The name of God is a personal, proper name, which is YAHWEH.. The word God is not a proper name, it is a title that has been bestowed on HIM, such as the title of King, or of Caesar. Now we find that after changes were made in the Scripture then Genesis 1:1 says: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Until the bible was translated into the Douay Version and the King James version, the true Scripture said: “In the beginning, Yahweh created the heavens and the earth.” So YAHWEH is the name of God and always has been.
It seems that when Jewry was trying to get a grip on the Priesthood in Jerusalem as they worked into that area at the time of the Maccabaen and Hycranus Priesthood they started to influence and change the scriptures to make them conform to the Talmud. Here at Jerusalem the Jewish Rabbi later said: “We must take the name of Yahweh out of the mouths of the people and we will put in the name of the Tetragrammaton, and thus they will not use the word Yahweh, instead they will use the name of Adoni or Elohim. ” Well Adoni means Lord and the word Elohim is another word for God, but is not HIS name. So here at Jerusalem they used the word El and the word Elohim, and then they passed a law at the Temple that said: the people could not use the name of Yahweh anymore, instead they must use the words, Adoni, and Elohim.
After this as time went on the name of Yahweh was taken out of the mouth of His people. Ever since that time the struggle has continued to come up with a name for God.
