Christian Identity Basics

Our First Love

 
00:00

By Pastor Mark Downey

Scripture Reading:  Revelation 2:1-4

What’s eating you?  We’ll answer that question shortly.  The exact phrase “our first love” is not found in the Bible, but it is generally recognized to be from Rev. 2:4, “Nevertheless I have somewhat against you, because you have left your first love.”  In other words, when God called His people and said I want you for My bride and at first they were ecstatic, but later became less than excited, there was a problem.  One has only to look at so many variants of re-formed churches, of splintering and denominationalism, whose original zeal had long departed and among whom so much declined, that an attempt to reinvent the warmth and excitement they once enjoyed can be typified with the church at Ephesus and for the last 2000 years can rear its ugly head anywhere and at anytime.  We constantly hear of revival, but more often than not it is nothing more than changing their reformation from the hands of the Divine Potter to the hands of spiritual paramedics with good intentions forming the clay in their own image of a revived vessel.  I recently listened to a sermon online titled ‘Returning to Our First Love,’ which means whatever they first loved, they had moved away from it.  When I got married, people said I had a smile on my face from cheek to cheek… for the whole day! And in typical fashion we had a beautiful honeymoon in Hawaii.  To this day, I have the same feelings I had on my wedding day, but after our first year of marriage, I would sometimes be remiss in opening a door for my bride or lapse in giving her a bouquet of flowers and she would say, “Oh, is the honeymoon over?”  And I would say, “Nooo, our love grows with each passing day; it just keeps getting better and better.”

Following God's Laws

by Debra Downey

Answering the question: "How do you know we must follow the laws of the Old Testament?"

The Bible says if you love God, you should follow His laws: "That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him..." (Deut. 30:20). There are many references, in both the Old and New Testament of how God's people, as a whole, have spent their whole existence in failure of obeying God and the misery that results.

The Bread of Life

by Pastor Mark Downey

Most of my messages are preaching to the choir, but today I’d like to address the friends and relatives of the choir, the outsiders to the Christian Israel truth; and I’m sure you’ll find some food for thought as well.  Sometimes I write for the purpose of helping Christians find the purpose of their lives in Christ.  Jesus said, “I have come that you may have life, and that you may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).  This has profound implications.  Bread… something used to hold the main part of a sandwich together; a side item to go along with the main meal; something children tear the crust from before eating.  Bread in our modern culture is really not a necessity.  One could function quite easily without bread.  Well, not so in biblical days.

At the very center of life during the times of Jesus and earlier, stood the stalks of grain that carried man from day to day.  Without bread, there was no life.  It is no accident that the most famous prayer in the Western world begins with, “Our Father, Who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.  Give us this day our daily bread.”  Daily bread – life - one day at a time.  The simplest things in the Bible often offer the deepest truths.  It is those very things which man often quickly writes off as insignificant or secondary that can open the door to the great spiritual truths of which Jesus spoke of. 

Hosea Chapter 2

Hosea Chapter 1 by Pastor Don Elmore

Several months ago Pastor Elmore asked me if I’d like to do tag team sermons on the first and second chapters of Hosea for a visit we were making to Pastor Harness’  church in Indiana and a second time for a Bible study farm family and I thought it was a great idea.  This is our third presentation and Don said we could probably expand our talks because we don’t have the time constraints we had before.  So, I have added some new material to elaborate on what Hosea was and is telling us. 

Don and I learned something about each other’s approach to sermons over lunch one Sunday after church, because breaking bread with fellow believers is a great way to fellowship.  Well, Don usually doesn’t come up with a title until he’s finished with the text.  On the other hand, I just can’t get started until I come up with a title.  I was guessing that Don was going to title his sermon ‘Hosea 1’.  I thought long and hard about what I what title my sermon and after much contemplation and deliberation, I finally decided upon ‘Hosea 2’. 

Neither of us had foreknowledge of what the other’s sermon was going to say, and in that manner of presentation, I think it may be more of what the Holy Spirit has to say than us.  I’ve been to many Identity conferences over the years and the good ones are when the speaker’s messages (and I’ll use a biblical phrase) are “fitly framed together”, they’re touching the same theme and convey the influence and beauty of the mind of Christ in His servants.  So let’s now look at how Hosea 1 and 2 match up. 

By What Authority?

By Pastor Mark Downey

Back in the 1980’s, every Friday night I would attend a tax protestors meeting in the basement of friends of mine and it got so popular, through word of mouth, that we were getting around 20 or more people at every meeting.  We had wonderful discussions, mapping out strategies to defeat the IRS.  I remember one of the key salvos in letters of response, was the question ‘by what authority’ do they compel Americans to comply with their codes, because there usually wasn’t any.  I learned what ‘colorable law’ meant.  It’s the conduct or action of somebody having governmental authority that is not within the law.  Police issuing traffic tickets are probably the most common example of ‘colorable law’, because we have the right of mobility.  Just because cars were invented, does that mean we gave somebody the authority to punish us for traveling without a permission card (license), that you have to pay for?  People pay taxes to a corporation that has nothing to do with America, land of the free.Around the same time our anti-tax group got going, we also started a church group in a log cabin that another church had vacated because of a split.  There was quite a bit of discussion at that time about authority and the primary focus of the Christian Patriot movement, as it was called back then, and was understandably from a biblical perspective.  There were a lot of good articles and books written about authority.  There were some victories in the courts, but for the most part, these challenges to the system, to the Babylonian-Masonic way of doing things, were prosecuted and people went to jail.  Some patriots were even murdered like Gordon Kahl.  After so much blood, sweat and tears I think the movement lost its momentum and many people became despondent.  But not me, especially when the government ramped up the stakes with Ruby Ridge, Waco and the Murrah Federal Building.  And then later with 9-11 and who knows what the next false flag operation will be.

The Truth About Lies

 
00:00

by Pastor Mark Downey

What is the truth about lies? It's that the truth doesn't matter. "An enemy hath done this" (Mt. 13:28), that sowed good seed with tares, that mixed the holy with the profane and spiritual with carnality... that makes the Truth of none effect.

Part 1: We should pursue the truth as to when America stopped being a Christain nation with scholarship, because that will help us to identify when we stopped being a White nation. We are no longer a White Christian nation, but rather a third world multicultural country.

Part 2: These days there is a monumental disparity between what someone believes and the truth.  Just because someone believes something is true doesn’t mean it is the truth.  And this is the great dilemma in awakening our people to the fact that they’ve been lied to or what they believe to be true is in fact false.

The Old Man: Dead on Arrival

by Pastor Mark Downey

The Bible describes the death of the old man, which everyone must experience through the God given faith in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, either in this life for believers or in the next life for unbelievers, before they can enter the Kingdom of God (on earth).

Part 1:  Would you like to change that look into something better? As long as we are under the power and dominion of the old man there is no countenance of peace, no shining light of glory, no sweet counsel, no blessed revivals and no comforting visitations of God’s presence. But there is a divine remedy for restoration.

Part 2:  Personal sins come from the old man. God’s plan will unfold for the Christian to see how he never has to sin again.

Unity

by Pastor Mark Downey

Seeking Christian unity with a singleness of purpose can be found in the Word of God...

Part 1: The puzzling question as to how the Christian Identity movement can get it together, having the same mind; speaking the same things is explained in this message.

Part 2: Scripture teaches that true brotherhood and unity may only be achieved when men are willing to be governed by the Word of God and walk by the discipline of Christian behavior.

Why we ARE Christian Identity

by Pastor Mark Downey

Regardless of what the jewish controlled news media says about Christian Identity, we most certainly are not going to put our tail between our legs and call ourselves something else. We are not dogs and we are not pusillanimous chameleons. The propaganda of antichrist scribes can throw their worst diatribes of slander at us and we will remain instruments of God's righteousness, while our adversaries remain vessels of dishonor.
