Of these, only the ORDINANCES have been set aside by the New Testament. The rituals and symbols embodied in them were the expression of the Israelite's belief that his Redeemer would come, in the future; but when Jesus Christ had come and performed the reality which these rituals symbolized, their usefulness was ended.   The believer could no longer say that he was waiting for the future coming of his Redeemer---they must be replaced by new rituals looking back to the fulfilled Redemption.

But the other Laws of God are still in force: THOU SHALT NOT STEAL and THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT ADULTERY are as important today as when Moses carried the stone tablets down Mount Sinai. We do not expect to gain our personal salvation by keeping the law; and indeed, this was never their true purpose. But we do expect to gain the peace, prosperity and good order of the community thereby, just as we have tried to do this by enforcing the laws of our City, our State, and our Nation.

Let no one be misled Into thinking that God's COMMANDMENTS, JUDGMENTS and STATUTES have been set aside by the New Testament. These are permanent laws. In Matthew 5:48, Jesus Christ tells us that God is perfect; naturally, so are His laws. Psalm 19 tells us: "The Law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the STATUTES of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the COMMANDMENT of the Lord Is pure, enlightening the eyes. * * The JUDGMENTS of the Lord are true and righteous altogether."

Do you say, "But Christianity is all spiritual, so we have abolished the law? Not so! In Romans 7:14, Paul tells us that THE LAW IS SPIRITUAL; and In Romans 3:31, he says: "Do we then make void the Law through faith? God forbid: yea, WE ESTABLISH THE LAW. Just as our perfect God exists forever, so do His perfect laws, for Psalm 111:7-8 tells us: "The work of His hands are verity and JUDGMENT; all His COMMANDMENTS  are sure. THEY STAND FAST FOR EVER AND EVER, and are done in truth and uprightness." And Jesus Christ, Himself, says, In Matthew 5:18 that not the tiniest part of the Law will pass away, until heaven and earth pass away (and this, as we see in Rev. 21, is not until after the Millenium, JESUS CHRIST'S triumphant 1,000 year reign).

Let us now consider some of these laws, and what they mean to us, today. Our political parties have sold our God in an evil deal to get the support of Minority Groups; for the sake of temporary power and graft, they would destroy all our greatness -forever.

They demand that we admit, indiscriminately, all the world's overflow, from pagan lands who hate our god, from Asian and African lands whose people are totally impossible to assimilate, and who must either remain a hostile enemy bloc within our borders, or else mongrelize and destroy our own race if we mix with them. But God expressly forbids this. 'While it is recognized that there will be some aliens here as students, merchants, etc., and these are to be treated with honesty and justice, the anti-Christians, who hate our God, are expressly forbidden to be allowed to live here: God says, "They shall not dwell In thy land, lest they make thee sin against Me." (Exodus 2:33).

No aliens were to be allowed to become numerous, lest they "devour the land" (Isaiah 1 :7) or "the people's strength" (Hosea 7:9), and fill themselves with the people's wealth (Proverbs 5:10). Ecclesiastics 11:34 warns us that, if we "Receive a stranger into thy house, he will disturb thee, and turn thee out of thine own."

Have you ever wondered at the long genealogies of the various people mentioned in the Bible? There was a good reason for this: their genealogy. It  proved that they were of true Israel blood, and entitled to take part in Its affairs. Citizenship was not given for two box tops and a dime, to all who came along. Those who were of related blood lines, but not actually of Israel, could only be admitted to citizenship In the third generation born in the land. Today, an immigrant scarcely need be off the boat long enough to get over his seasickness before he can start the process of becom­ing a citizen. Par too short a time is required for aliens from some parts of the world to really learn our way of life: they can, and do, memorize certain things they must be able to recite on their examination for citizen­ship---but these things pertain to the mechanics of our government, not the ideals which led the Pounding Fathers to use those mechanics to make us great. Under God's laws, those who were not closely related to us in race could not be admitted to citizenship, ever, not even after ten generations. (Deuteronomy 23).

By violating God's laws, we now have considerable blocs of unassimilable aliens who have been given the vote. They hate all the ideals of this land to which they came only to get more money. And now our political parties are selling out the great American Majority in bidding for the support of the alien Minority Groups.

Under God's laws, no-one of another race is allowed to hold public office. Deuteronomy 17:19 says that "Thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, one which Is not thy brother." The word translated stranger" is the Hebrew word "NOMRI" which means not just someone you haven't met, but ONE OF ANOTHER RACE. That persons of other races could reach positions of pow­er is clearly stated to be only a curse which comes upon us for our viola­tions of Divine Law; Deuteronomy 28 says: "But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all His commandments and His statutes which I command thee this day, THAT ALL THESE CURSES SHALL COME UPON THEE, AND OVERTAKE THEE: The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high, and thou shalt come down very low. He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him; he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail. * * because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the Lord that God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded thee.We have been persistently led away from the Laws of God by certain political groups who don't even claim to represent the majority of our peo­ple, the White Christian Americans, but who openly represent only alliances of Minority Groups. These politicians call themselves "Liberal." This, also, was known to God thousands of years before it happened; and He also told us their true character. In the 32nd. chapter of Isaiah, the prophet is telling us of that time yet to come when the Kingdom of God will be fully established and operating as it should be; and he tells us that then if The vile person shall no more be called liberal." God speed the day!

For nearly sixty years, politicians have betrayed us, the great maj­ority, seeking the support of certain disloyal Minorities. The result has been the adoption of policies, both at home and abroad, which have brought Us to our present position, facing a war in which we must fight for our very existence. If we had obeyed God in the making of our laws and our national policies, these evils would not have come upon us. Isaiah 48 tells us:

Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I am the Lord thy God, which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go, 0 that thou hadst hearkened to My commandments! Then-had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea," (But) "There is no peace, saith the Lord, unto the wicked," What wickedness? Ours, in letting evil and treacherous political considerations displace the Laws of God, replacing them with platforms written to see who can stoop to the lowest baseness to buy Minority votes.

When will we learn that only by following the righteous Laws of God can gain the peace and prosperity of God's People.
