Church of the heathen

When you look at what is going on in the modern Christian church today, you might wander why there are so many denominations and if God is actually dealing with any of them. From what I can see the modern Christian church seems to just be a bunch of heathen having a good time at God's expense, but the shocking thing is that this is what could actually be happening. In the time of Noah we know for sure that God was only dealing with Noah and his immediate family, because he drowned the rest of the world, so only eight people were saved that time. In the time of Moses God's laws were given to Israel as a nation and they were the only people that God dealt with as a whole, even though he did also deal with individuals like Balaam, but the heathen were without His laws, so all they were doing was trying to live a happy life and then dying without hope. We can see this is the case because of Romans 2:9-16 which says "Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: For there is no respect of persons with God. For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel." and we see here that the people who have sinned without the law will perish without the law, so if your church pastor has said that God's law has been done away with, then it would seem as if he wants you to perish without the law.

Being least like the heathen

When you look at the modern Christian church it seems as if they hate God's law, whether it is in the Old or New Testament, so they will make sure to argue against anyone who wants to uphold God's laws, so that they can keep their current setup. In the Bible Israel was destroyed because they would not keep God's commandments, but the modern church seems to think that they can get away with things because Jesus has paid the price. We can see what Jesus has to say on the subject in Matthew 5:17-19 which says "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." and we see here that if your pastor teaches you to break any of God's commandments, then he will be least in the kingdom of Heaven, with you probably joining him, with the lowest place in God's kingdom obviously being the lake of fire.

Who will help to save the heathen?

From reading the above it should be obvious that the modern Christian church is not the means by which God will be making His return, in order to save the remnant of people that want to serve Him. We can read of who He will be using in Ezekiel 36:21-28 which says "But I had pity for mine holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the heathen, whither they went. Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name's sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went. And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes. For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God." and we see here that it will be the children of Israel who he will be using, because they are the only nation who He has ever dealt with. Note also that God is saying that He is doing this so that the heathen will know who the true God is, which seems to indicate that they will not know about the one true God until the real Israel has returned. If the real Israelites are not in the promised land at the moment, then it looks like all of the modern Christian churches are just full of heathen who are busy having fun serving themselves, which is hardly surprising because God would not allow His true servants to be split when it comes to doctrine.

The sensible heathens can be saved.

Let me just clarify the situation and say that I am not a supporter of what some of the Hebrew Israelite camps are saying, that the heathen cannot be saved, but I want them to realise that salvation is not an easy thing and that they have a lot of repenting to do. The first thing that a heathen has to do is to stop hating the real Israelites, even though God did say that this would happen, then they should find their nearest Israelite, so that they can then be taught how to serve the one true God. We can read of how a heathen should approach an Israelite in Matthew 15:21-28 which says "Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour." and we see here that a heathen should admit that they want the crumbs that have fallen from the Israelites table, at which point the Israelite should gladly welcome them in. Just in case someone clever says that the heathen only have to show respect to Jesus, lets see how Peter was welcomed in Acts 10:21-27 which says "Then Peter went down to the men which were sent unto him from Cornelius; and said, Behold, I am he whom ye seek: what is the cause wherefore ye are come? And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth God, and of good report among all the nation of the Jews, was warned from God by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee. Then called he them in, and lodged them. And on the morrow Peter went away with them, and certain brethren from Joppa accompanied him. And the morrow after they entered into C├Žsarea. And Cornelius waited for them, and had called together his kinsmen and near friends. And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him. But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man. And as he talked with him, he went in, and found many that were come together." and we see here how you would expect a grateful heathen to greet an Israelite who is visiting to speak God's word to them. Note also that the heathen person must also fear God, be just and have a good report among the other Israelite brethren.

What should the heathens now do?

So this seems to be the good news that the real Israelites have for the rest of the world, but if the rest of the world continues to disrespect them, then you have to wander how they can be saved. But there will obviously be a small group of heathen who will realise what is going on, then will repent and help the Israelites, so that they can avoid the curses being reversed onto them. If you are still going to on of these, now obviously fake, Christian churches, then it looks like it is time to leave if the pastor refuses to do the will of the Father, which is obviously that the real Israel must return. If you can instead convince the pastor to help God with His plan, then that is good news and you should stay and help him with finding your local Israelites and convincing them that God is waiting for them to repent, so that they can be restored to the promised land and then help to save the world.
