The Church Militant Part 1

by Pastor Mark Downey

People usually don't associate Jesus as a soldier or even as a military commander, or having anything to do with a warrior class. The reason for this is because of the feminization of Christ from establishment religions representing Baal and, as such, Christ becomes their model for a pious pacifist. The historical Jesus, changed into a long haired wimp then, no longer is a threat to Babylonian-style politics. Most Christians don't regard Christianity as the form and substance of what we generally recognize a military to be. And yet, so many wars have been fought in the name of Christ and so much death because of Christ. The problem is, sometimes men die for another Christ, for false teachings that are interposed upon gullible believers and become the cannon fodder of nefarious ambitions which have nothing to do with the Word.

The purpose for which Christ came was the sacrificial Lamb, but isn't the greatest act of heroism for a soldier on the battlefield, to put his life on the line for somebody else? "He that findeth his life shall lose it and he that loseth his life for My sake shall find it" Mt. 10:39. Christ goes way beyond all the purple hearts that have ever been given. The church's fixation is upon a placid, pastoral image of a nice little woolly lamb. You don't hear too much from the pulpit pimps about the symbolic follow-up of that bloody slaughtered crucifixion of the Lamb of God (John 1:36) returning as the Lion of the tribe of Judah (Rev. 5:5).

Why do I want to portray Christianity militarily? Well, first, because most others don't, and second, because the Bible does. The book of Numbers in the Hebrew language means musters of the militias; it's like a role call of able-bodied men to arm themselves and prepare to fight. We've discussed the dominion mandate and our manifest destiny of the Adamic/Israelite race in previous messages, and this theme runs throughout the scriptures. This perspective of establishing the Kingdom of God upon the face of the earth, cannot be viewed without the element of enforcement, because people will not voluntarily cooperate. Just ask Moses about law enforcement in his wilderness experience.

On a global, international scale, we have all kinds of challenges to a Christian military. From the Medieval Crusades to the present judeo-Christian war against terrorism, these campaigns have always been convoluted and misdirected; in other words . . . unbiblically justified. Yet, through all of these feeble and fickle conflicts, we are reassured by God that He has a purpose of warfare and the battle plan is His. I pointed out several times that false prophets and religious con men operate in this country with impunity and enjoy the free exercise of their theological heresies that were never intended in our Constitution, and certainly not allowed in the Bible. It is much like the Baal priests who held sway over the people prior to Elija resolving the issue at a nearby river. When Isaiah 14:26 prophesied the "purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth", he was talking about the final universal catastrophe of the present Babylonian world system. And this is going to take a military effort of the church militant. Those who preach universal reconciliation and doctrines about devils have got it all wrong, because they don't want to face the reality that Babylon might be one of their friends or family.

The church militant, which goes by many different descriptions such as Hoskins' Vigilantes of Christendom or the much debated 'Phinehas Priesthood' or 'the order of Melchisedac' or even Christian Identity in general, are well aware of the racial propensity for our people to militate against alien influence. That 'breath of life' breathed unto our nostrils by God is what makes us different than all other animals or races. As a result of that spiritual infusion into our core genetics, we have a God given instinct to fulfill God's will.

God said in Jeremiah 51:20 "with thee will I destroy kingdoms, with thee will I break in pieces the nations . . . thou art my battle axe and weapons of war." Does this not suggest militarily engaging an enemy? Does this change in the New Testament? The pulpit pimp can easily torture the scriptures as they try to take the kingdoms of this world by violence and use II Cor. 10:3 "we do not war after the flesh" and Eph. 6:12 "for we wrestle not against flesh and blood" to imply that we do not take the law into our own hands and use force. Unless, of course, we're told by the 501c3 stooges to obey the higher jewish authorities of Romans 13. What are the 3 stooges of the world? Why, it's the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government that have replaced God. "For the lord is our judge, the lord is our lawgiver, the lord is our king, He will save us" Isaiah 33:22. The Lord is our salvation, not Babylon. That's why the great whore, drunken with the blood of the saints will be destroyed by the church militant. It will be those Christians so infused with the Holy Spirit that they will have no qualms in continuing the warfare of Ephesians 6 in context, whereas we do wrestle "against principalities, against powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Somebody in Christianity is going to fulfill Rev. 18:6-7 "Reward her even as she rewarded you . . . so much torment and sorrow give her."

When II Cor. 10:4 says "the weapons of our warfare are not carnal", it means it's not secular or worldly independent of God. Continuing this verse, "but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds." Don't let anybody tell you this means we don't need guns anymore. If we are dependent on God, the bullet will hit its target. I use guns simply as an example. There are many other weapons at our disposal, like the Word of God, sharper than any two edged sword. Words can kill and the antichrist wordists know that and so they change the military applications of scripture that would do them harm into neutered meaningless interpretations.

The Christian military will be "casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ" II Cor. 10:5. And then, in verse 6 "having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled." The soldiers of Christ and the army of God get their minds right with the Lord before commencing a physical battle. There is a difference between 'vengeance is mine, thus saith the Lord" pertaining to our personal enemies, brethren in whom we are in conflict with and our being ready to avenge the enemies of God whom God has purposed to be destroyed when our house is cleansed and in order. On that day, the Lord of hosts (armies) shall sanction and bless our Christian Israelite forces to "tread down the wicked . . . they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet" Mal. 4:3.

I know there are young men in our Movement who are chomping at the bit to start a RAHOWA, but obviously it's not happening. Why? All I have is an opinion. Perhaps it's not in God's timing yet, for the basic training of His troops is not complete and a cadre of leadership is not established. We don't have the unity necessary for a coordinated strategy. As a consequence of the current divisions, our racial nation is vulnerable to every wind of doctrine and unholy alliances. If we are to prepare and be ready to avenge the wrongs of our society, we must first overcome the aforementioned obstacles to our destined battlefields. We must maintain and occupy the realms of self government in the body politic of our churches before we advance to more complex victories of state government. "

"Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that built it; except the Lord keep the city, the watchmen waketh in vain" Ps. 127:1. I think we should keep in mind that except the Lord recruits and trains His soldiers, the warrior will die in vain. I would probably be vilified in some quarters by saying Bob Mathews' Order was all for naught and has not brought forth the fruits of the Kingdom. Their walk with Christ, or the lack thereof, does not outweigh any accolades of martyrdom or heroism, but does serve as an example of what not to do in the performance of a Christian military unit. They had good intentions, but no discipline.

Christ started His Movement with twelve disciples who were all soldiers of the Cross. Look at what we've got 2000 years later. The veracity of God, the validation of His Word are the things that have come to pass. "The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy" Rev. 19:10. Our future and that of our posterity cannot be exempt from military service. A believer cannot claim conscientious objection. The Bible is a call to arms and the church militant is the venue of execution, and by that, I mean executing the Laws of God. We will get our marching orders and God will send forth judgment unto victory (Mt. 12:20).

There's a Mel Gibson movie about the Vietnam war called "We Were Soldiers", which as a Nam vet, I find offensive. The story is based on the memoirs of a retired general hired as a technical consultant along with politically correct supervision and cooperation from the DOD. This old general being interviewed on 60 Minutes, as if dispensing the wisdom of Americana said, "hate war, but love the warriors." Do you see how this kind of mentality defuses a biblical holy war and how we're supposed to glorify the gung-ho ho idiots being all they can be in the godless army of the New World Order? There's going to be a new order. It's called the Kingdom of Heaven, and it's going to be brought forth by the Christian military of the church militant.
