• A National Foundational Lie

    A National Foundational Lie
    by Pastor Peter J. Peters

    In John 18:38 Pilate asked a question, "What is truth?" Jesus gave us the answer to that question in John 17:17: "Thy word is truth." This means anything we believe that is contrary to the word of God is a lie and the word teaches us that our God desires us to believe a lie IF we will not have a love for the truth.

    2 Thessalonians 2:10-11: "And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie." KJV

    Notice, from II Thessalonians 2:10, that for salvation to occur there must be a receiving and a loving of truth. Also notice, from verse 11, that when truth is not believed God will send a delusion so the people will believe a lie. This is true on an individual basis and on a national basis. When His people, as a nation, prefer to believe a lie rather than to receive a love of the truth that nation becomes deluded and, in such a state, will perish—i.e., be destroyed.

    In a previous newsletter, we wrote an article about thinking outside the box. Pointing out that the perimeter of the box is formed by the false premises programmed into the heads of the populace or in other words the lies that the people believe. It has been said that people tend to believe that which they hear first; that which they hear most often, and that which they hear from those in positions of authority (or from those they perceive to be authorities). It also needs to be said that people tend to believe what they want to believe. Repentance involves a change in thinking where the people receive a love of the truth so as to be saved. For a nation that is perishing because it believes lies the message from the Bible is as it has always been—repent or perish. The prophet that would dare point out the lies, that is, think outside the box, is perceived as either crazy and/or dangerous and is sometimes persecuted by the populace that feel quite comfortable believing lies.

    As Jesus said, the word of God is truth but the enemies of God (and of our nation)—i.e., the destroyers—know they can invalidate the word of God or the truth by inserting tradition.

    Matthew 15:6-9: "And thus you invalidated the word of God for the sake of your tradition. You hypocrites, rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying, 'This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far away from Me.' 'But in vain do they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.'"

    The meaning of the Greek word translated tradition is "a handing down or over" and so it is we have had lies handed down to us from generation to generation in such a way that we believe those lies to be true. Take for example the statement separation of church and state. We have an entire nation of people that believe that is part of their constitution yet it is found nowhere in the constitution or in the Declaration of Independence. It is found in the constitution for the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic, in article #124. The people hear this lie from people in authority (or that they perceive to be authorities); it is one of the first things they hear in their indoctrination centers called government public schools and, quite frankly, it is something they want to believe anyway.

    So, where did the statement come from besides from a communist constitution? It seems that someone found the statement in a letter that Tom Jefferson wrote to a friend. Since when do we take what is written by some Tom, Dick, or Harry in a letter and use it as a legal foundation for the nation? Thomas Jefferson wrote these words in the Declaration of Independence: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

    Now the serious Bible reader needs to ask if this so-called self-evident truth is in the Bible for if the Bible does not teach this then this is a lie. It is a lie that is helping to destroy a nation of people and the land God gave them. Are all men created equal according to the Bible? The answer is no! For example, did God consider Moses and Pharaoh equal? Does not the following Bible passage clearly teach that the creator created Pharaoh and his people for destruction and Moses and his people for non-destruction?

    Romans 9:16-24: "For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, 'For this very purpose I raised you up, to demonstrate My power in you, and that My name might be proclaimed throughout the whole earth.' So then He has mercy on whom He desires, and He hardens whom He desires. You will say to me then, 'Why does He still find fault? For who resists His will?' On the contrary, who are you, O man, who answers back to God? The thing molded will not say to the molder, 'Why did you make me like this,' will it? Or does not the potter have a right over the clay, to make from the same lump one vessel for honorable use, and another for common use? What if God, although willing to demonstrate His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction? And He did so in order that He might make known the riches of His glory upon vessels of mercy, which He prepared beforehand for glory." NAS

    When God gave the old Canaan land to His people did He consider the cursed Canaanites (that He had created) to have equal rights to life, liberty, and property in the land according Deuteronomy 7:1-7?

    "When the Lord your God shall bring you into the land where you are entering to possess it and shall clear away many nations before you, the Hittites and the Girga****es and the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites; seven nations greater and stronger than you, and when the Lord your God shall deliver them before you, and you shall defeat them, then you shall utterly destroy them. You shall make no covenant with them and show no favor to them. Furthermore, you shall not intermarry with them; you shall not give your daughters to their sons, nor shall you take their daughters for your sons. For they will turn your sons away from following Me to serve other gods; then the anger of the Lord will be kindled against you, and He will quickly destroy you. But thus you shall do to them: you shall tear down their altars, and smash their sacred pillars, and hew down their Asherim, and burn their graven images with fire. 'For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for His own possession out of all the peoples who are on the fiice of the earth.'" Deuteronomy 7:1-7. NAS

    So God's people are going to have to choose to believe a lie or to believe the truth. Remember, Jesus told us that the Word was truth. Thus, anything that is not in accordance with that Word is a lie. A nation of people who choose to believe lies over the truth will eventually be destroyed. The destroyers know this so they promote lies and traditions. Now, when Tom Jefferson wrote those words they were understood in their proper context for a nation was being formed in a day (July 4, 1776) in keeping with Bible prophecy (II Samuel 7:10). All the men that signed the Declaration of Independence were of the same race. The Israelite race. In other words, Jefferson was writing about his people. (Isn't it interesting that other races can be concerned about their people but yet we have been made to feel that it is racist and evil for a white man to be concerned about his people?)

    Perhaps we should stop here and make known the truth of God's word that He created the races and He called His creation good and that He loves His creation. He put His created races in different geographical locations. That is, He created them separate. If the Chinese nation saw their nation being destroyed with interracial marriage, lies, a breakdown of their borders (by being invaded by other nations of people called legal and illegal aliens) would it be wrong for their religious and political leaders to be concerned? Would it be wrong for them to be concerned that their children and grandchildren had a land and a nation of their own, inherited from their forefathers? Yet, God's people have been programmed to believe that somehow it is wrong for them to have such concerns. The destroying serpent people that the Bible speaks of have programmed them to believe this lie and, as a result, their race is about to be destroyed.

    In light of the following Bible passage ask yourself, did Jesus consider the Canaanite woman equal to the children of Israel?

    Matthew 15:22-26: "And behold a Canaanite woman came out from that region, and began to cry out, saying, 'Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David, my daughter is cruelly demon-possessed.' But He did not answer her a word. And His disciples came to Him and kept asking Him, saying, 'Send her away, for she is shouting out after us.' But He answered and said 'I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.' But she came and began to bow down before Him, saying, 'Lord Help me!' And He answered and said 'It is not good to take the children's bread and thrown it to the dogs.'" NAS

    Did Jesus consider the Apostles Peter and Judas Iscariot equal in regards to their lives? When He knew that Satan desired to sift Peter did He not pray for Peter? (Luke 22:31) Yet, when He knew full well that the snake, Judas, was going to have Satan enter into him (Luke 22:3) and betray him He did not pray for him; rather, He told him to go do what he had to (John 13:27). Why? Because Peter and Judas were not created the same. The Bible tells us that Judas was the son of perdition (John 17:12). The Greek word for perdi-tion means destruction and is the same word used in Romans 9:22:

    "What if God although willing to demonstrate His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction?" NAS

    In the Bible true Godly prophets (not the Baal Priests) were sent to, preached to, were concerned about, and prayed for God's people, which were their people. This was not wrong. It would have been wrong not to, yet the false thinking and preaching of the modern preachers is that it is wrong for this preacher to put truths out such as is put out in this article.

    God's remnant people who know who they are need to be praying, as we directed in the last newsletter in the article "Firestorm Coming", for a fresh filling of the Holy Spirit and for flames of revival.

    It is the Holy Spirit that will "guide you into all truth" (John 16:13). I believe when that latter rain pours out the prophesied awakening of Isaiah 52:1-2 will take place.

    "Awake, awake, clothe yourself in your strength, O Zion; clothe yourself in your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city. For the uncircumcised and the unclean will no more come into you. Shake yourself from the dust, rise up, O captive Jerusalem; loose yourself from the chains around your neck, O captive daughter of Zion."

    Could the captivity spoken here have been in part that they had been captivated, seduced or deluded—or shall we say, boxed in by lies? Lies that were destroying them?
