Those who hate to believe our Israel identity doctrine like to snarl at us, "Ah, what's so special about the White Race, anyway?" They like to close their eyes to the fact that all civilization existing in the world today is the product of that race: what the dark peoples have was taught to them by us. But I want to take up this challenge, and show that there is something very special about our Race, altogether aside from our abil­ities and accomplishments: that the very origin of the true Israel of God, the Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian, Germanic and related peoples, was in itself a miracle from the hand of God.

You will remember that God first made His promises of a marvelous future to Abraham, telling him "I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered." (Genesis 13:6) "My covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations;" (Genesis 17:4) "And I will estab­lish My covenant between Me and thee and thy seed after thee in their gen­erations for an everlasting covenant" (Genesis 1-7:7), and told how these nations would be a blessing to all the earth.

Abraham had 8 sons; but God told him that only his son Isaac was to be the ancestor of the promised line, called by God to become His people, saying, "In Isaac shall thy seed be called" Genesis 21:12), and My covenant will I establish with Isaac." (Genesis 17:21) Not only was Isaac, our ancestor, specially selected by God, but his very existence was a miracle. Two parties are necessary for the birth of all other children---a father and a mother; but the birth of Isaac required three parties: his father, Abraham, his mother, Sarah,---and GOD.

A year before the birth of Isaac, God gave him his name, in Genesis 17:21. When God spoke of a child being born to Sarah, both Abraham and Sarah laughed at the obvious impossibility: for Sarah was then 90 years old, and feeble with great age 45 years past the time when she could bear a child and, indeed, she had been barren all her life---and Abraham was 99 years old. But God performed the miracle He had promised, and a year la­ter, at the age of 91, Sarah bore her first and only child, Isaac.

This was only the first of miracles. Like his descendant, Jesus Christ, Isaac was named by God Himself before his birth. Jesus Christ brought the reality of resurrection from the dead; but Isaac was used to furnish a symbolic prophecy of our loved ones given back from the dead. Naturally, all of Abraham's hopes were now centered upon this miracle son through whom all of God's great promises were to be fulfilled; then came the stunning command from God, "Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt-offering." Did God now mean to take away all that He had promised? No, Abraham knew better than that: not in the awful grief of a father about to witness, even to cause, the death of his beloved son but in serene faith, Abraham obeyed God. He took the boy Isaac and went to Mount Moriah, prepared the wood fire for the burnt offering, never doubting that God would keep His promise: either God would intervene beforehand, or God would give him back his son from the dead. Abraham told Isaac "My son, God will provide Himself a lamb for a burnt-offer­ing". He knew and relied upon the assurance that Jesus Christ was "the lamb slain from before the foundation of the world", (Revelation 13:8) the one who paid all debts and penalties for us, and gave us back our loved ones from the dead.

As always, God honored His word. The 22nd chapter of Genesis tells how God did provide the burnt-offering, a ram trapped in a thicket by his horns, so Abraham made the sacrifice with the offering provided by God. Again, here Is Christianity in the Old Testament. We have nothing of our own to offer in atonement for our sins: It is God who provides the lamb as the sin-offering. The offering of the beloved son prefigures the sacrifice of Jesus Christ as the Lamb of God; and the fact that his pro­mised career was not interrupted by death symbolizes the swift resurrect­ion of Jesus Christ first from the dead, to continue His promised work on our behalf. For us the threat of death is not real, for God has not only promised us continued life, but has strengthened our faith by clear demon­stration of His power and will to resurrect us.

It is very fitting that Isaac was specially chosen and called by God to be our ancestor --- as we are specially chosen and called by God to be His people and to do His will in the earth. We are all the children of Isaac; only by a miracle from the hand of God did he ever come into ex­istence at all --- and remember, that miracle is our miracle too, for without it we also would not exist today: only by another miracle from God did Isaac grow to maturity and become our ancestor---and again, we are the pro­duct of that miracle. God told Isaac, "I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of- heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed. shall all the nations of the earth be blessed." (Genesis 26:4) With all our human imperfections, we have fulfilled this prophecy. We have brought the other races the first sanitation they ever knew, and stopped the pestilences which had previously ravaged their lands; we stopped their murderous tribal wars and brought them peace, as long as we remained in command of their lands; we brought them the only public edu­cation they had ever known; we taught them improved methods of agricul­ture, and when they still were not able to feed themselves, we sent them on many occasions the shipments of food which saved millions from death by famine.

By a miracle, God created Isaac for a purpose--- to be the ancestor of our race; by miracles, God brought us to the great numbers and power which He had promised; God said of us, "They shall show forth My praise" ---and despite our human faults, we have done so.
