Lifestyle Christianity 7: Living It Out

 
00:00

JAMES 2:10-11

10  For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. 11  For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.

Here we have specific commandments from the law being listed. We cannot pick and choose which commandments we will and will not obey, anymore than we can change the meaning of the commandments to fit the times in which we live. Here we have the sixth and seventh commandments, "Do not commit adultery" and "also, Do not kill." What are the meanings of these commandments and how do they relate to one another? First of all we know "Do not kill" is commanding us not to murder or take innocent human life. "Do not" or "Thou shalt not commit adultery" (as it is written in the Old Testament) includes (but is not limited to) infidelity in a marriage between a man and a woman. Committing adultery also includes the sin of racemixing, for to adulterate something is to corrupt, pervert, or taint it, the very essence of miscegenation. This is what is killing or murdering the white race. James mentioning "Do not kill" and "Do not commit adultery" shows a relationship in that sense. Though this may not be James primary intent in coupling these two commandments together, at the very least it does indirectly illustrate how the Ten Commandments do indeed prohibit racemixing, even in a dual sense.

In a more general application, though we should try to keep all the commandments of God as best we can, in this flesh we will not perfectly keep them, "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all." There might be certain commandments one sees as easier to keep and take pride in, while others are tougher for them and expose weaknesses. James is saying that it makes no difference, all Israelites are "guilty of all". Remember, the law was only given to Israel. So this is why Yahshua Christ came to die for us; He kept the law perfectly, died, was buried, and rose again on the third day to set us free from the penalty of it. Does this mean obedience to God is now optional? Of course not. It's just that our motivation to obey should be even more from within, wanting to show love and respect to Christ.

As we have seen, when we love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength while loving our neighbor as ourselves, we are living in accordance with the law of liberty by the Spirit from the inner man. As an Israelite, if one chooses to live based only on external considerations, though he may think he is keeping "the whole law", he better think again. God has set it up this way so we will see the benefit to living from within, based on love and liberty:

JAMES 2:12-13

12  So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty. 13  For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.

God shows mercy to those who are living by faith from within "by the perfect law of liberty" as we already studied in the previous chapter. For one who lives from within shows mercy to His brethren and will in turn, receive mercy from God and others. Yet if all we do is see Christianity as a list of 'thou shalts and thou shalt nots', we will more than likely judge and condemn our brethren unrightously, therefore not receiving mercy in return ourselves.

Speaking and doing the law of liberty is inwardly following the wisdom and instruction of the Spirit of Christ based on faith. Obviously as we learned in our previous lesson, treating a poor brother worse than a rich brother is showing "no mercy". As Christ said in the Beattitudes, if you want mercy in the future, begin showing it now. For "mercy rejoiceth against judgement". Here, we are being challenged to live it out from within by the Spirit. For how we judge our brother is how we will we judged. Christ taught this as well in the Sermon on the Mount, "Judge not, lest ye be judged." Yet when we judge "by the law of liberty" we are judging ourselves and extending mercy to our brethren.

Therefore in approaching a life of faith, we see it in relation to the way we view our brethren. The Christian lifestyle isn't in a vacuum where we are supposed to isolate ourselves from other whites. While we are to seperate from all non-whites, we should be drawing closer to our brethren in love continually.

JAMES 2:14

14  What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?

There is no "profit" in saying we have faith and yet not acting upon it. So many whites claim to be followers of Christ but they have never stepped out and trusted God for anything. Though God has come thru for them many times, they refuse to put their lives totally in his hands. We are seeing now the affects of empty words on the part of white men in America. We say we have faith but where is the proof? So-called "faith" without actions to back it up is not faith at all, it is hypocrisy. Many white men work themselves into an early grave because they have never put any faith along side their hard work. Plus, we spend so much time trying to change everyone else around us, while stubbornly refusing to make any real changes in ourselves. Repentance isn't just saying words, it is taking responsibility for your attitude and actions by going in the direction of faith. When our faith is genuine we stop looking for what others can do for us or to please us, and start looking for ways to help them. So this particular saving is not speaking of eternal salvation in this context anymore than it was in chapter 1 verse 21. Christ already eternally saved all Israel. This saving is speaking of the present deliverance we need in this life from the antichrist influences all around us which cause us to compromise which we allow to prevent us from trusting God. James is once again saying it is time to presently live your Christianity out as a lifestyle:

JAMES 2:15-16

15  If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16  And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?

When our people are cold, hungry, and "destitute" they need more than just words. In a spiritual sense, most of our people are "naked" as they do not know the significance of the skin which covers them and they are destitute in their soul having never heard to truth. Therefore there must be the meeting of some need on the physical level to get their attention that what they are hearing from us is for real. Politicians give their empty words and promises along with preachers and all of the churches. Unfortunately, people have grown to expect to be let down by those who profess Christ. Therefore what our people need to see from Identity Christians is more personal action and results. Once we give our "brother or sister" what they need, we can always continue to think about or pray for them. Yet if we have what they need, witholding it behind a cloak of false religiousity, it is no "profit" or benefit to them at all.

It is shameful, but this has pretty much become the testimony of white America today because of the poisonous influences of judeochurchianity. Most all religious whites will go to the other side of the world to warm and fill a negroe or chinaman, while the needs of a white "brother or sister" who is near to them goes completely unnoticed. The most important issue then is our own personal attitude toward our fellow whites; do we even look for other whites to feed and clothe? There are those among us in Christian Identity who may be unavoidably suffering economically. If those needs were brought before you, would you be willing and ready to answer with more than just a pledge of prayers for them? Thank God for those who would and have in the past.

James is therefore showing how ridiculous it is to assume faith without works can have any real effect. We can go to church, march, protest, vote, and even give speeches. But if there's not a daily lifestyle of reaching out to others to go along with all of our words, then "what doth it profit?"

JAMES 2:17

17  Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

Here we see more evidence that it isn't just the jews who are killing our race, it's our dead faith! The jews and other non-whites have no control over how we each respond to the needs of our brethren. We want to blame them for everything while we neglect those in need among our people. We want to pretend like we hold no responsibility for the shape things are in, while continually doubting God by sitting on our hands. Let's face it, dead faith is no faith at all, actually it is worse. Faith is to be active and alive, even while it is in the midst of waiting on God to move. Dead faith is nothing more than words without actions. If we really expect God to bless us with more in the future, we better try to be a blessing to our brother with what we already have now. Our faith is never "alone" when we include "being" a blessing to our brother as part of our lifestyle.

JAMES 2:18

18  Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

James is not saying it's either faith or works for salvation as so many theologians and churchmen have argued for centuries. He is saying there is no way to show evidence of your faith without works, without doing something about it by living it out. How long will it be before whites will stop arguing and take to heart that Christianity is a lifestyle of love. We live out what our faith is in the direction of. If deep down we believe bad things are going to happen by worrying, our faith is pointed in that direction and that is what we will continue to attract. But if we will turn our faith in the direction of God, believing that He will come thru for us, while doing what we can to help others, we can expect Him to supply more than we need in His time. Our opportunity to prove we have genuine faith is thru how we choose to think, live, and what we do.

JAMES 2:19-20

19  Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20  But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

It should be no surprise to read that there are "devils" which believe when there are 'jews for jesus,' the so-called 'black hebrews', along with countless non-whites in judeo churches. They are nothing more than devils who will one day hear from Christ after they boast of all their 'spirituality', "I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity" (Matthew 7:21-23).

Even as whites, if all we have are just thoughts, words, and ideas dancing around in our heads, in a practical sense, we have no more faith than these devils. IT IS VANITY TO ASSUME MERELY SAYING WE BELIEVE IS ALL THAT BEING A CHRISTIAN CONSISTS OF. Though we may even profess Christian Identity, if we never do anything about our belief, it is nothing more than demon faith. Vanity makes us think saying we believe is enough. After all, God wouldn't want you to have to do anything which may cost you something- really?! In order to live it out, your faith must be more than just words.

It is vanity to assume faith requires nothing of us. People say they are believing God for something yet never see the need to make any changes within themselves in the process and eventually give up, why? Because they are not allowing God to prepare them for the blessing they are asking for. God will not give us something we are not prepared for that may ruin our lives and that of our family. Too many times thru the ways of the world, poor families quickly come into a lot of money for instance, and it turns into a horror story. Drug addiction, broken homes, divorce... we could go on and on describing how individual's lives and families are destroyed when they get more than what they are mature enough to handle. It should cause us to at least "tremble" to think about how shallow we are if we think having a 'hope so, maybe so' kind of false faith is enough. We must be willing to live it out daily by making the changes God reveals to us in the process of believing.

Indeed, God wants us to determine our desires and ask Him to provide them. But the more we ask for, the more we better be ready to work on ourselves to get to the place where we are ready to undertake the level of responsibility for such a tremendous blessing. Of course this is the work of the indwelling Spirit, but it involves taking responsibility for and controling your own thoughts while striving to maintain an attitude of joy and gratitude for what you do have. This is living out Christianity as a lifestyle; living your life from within in a way that is evident to those around you.

JAMES 2:21-22

21  Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22  Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?

As was brought out in previous studies, by faith Abraham waited for God to bless him with the birth of Isaac and He did. Later, God wanted Abraham to take Isaac up on the mountain to sacrifice him "upon the altar". How much introspection and self-discipline do you think was required for Abraham to so freely offer up his precious son whom he had awaited for so long? Yet he did it without question even to where the Angel of Yahweh had to catch Abraham's hand as he was bringing the knife to Isaac's throat, as God continued to reward his faith with righteousness. There is no question in our minds that Abraham trusted God.

Through the example of "Abraham our father" James is saying we are justified by faith in the sight of God, while we are justified by works in the sight of men. How do we as Israelites know Abraham had faith in God? It was "when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar". It was by faith God gave him Isaac therefore Abraham's faith was still in God enough to sacrifice him as well. Abraham had strong enough faith to both receive and to give up his greatest desire. There is no doubt that "Abraham our father" lived by faith because we see it thru these works. Indeed Abraham was and is the father of the faith, not in word only but in the testimony of his deeds.

This text also further solidifies who this Epistle was written to: the seed of Abraham thru Jacob/Israel. Therefore we are expected by God to be "justified by works" just like our ancestors such as Abraham, who put it all on the line for God because of their desires. Are others seeing evidence thru your works that you have placed your faith in the God of Abraham? Again, what we do as a result of our opportunities of faith is what brings growth and muturity into our lives. Our faith is made perfect by us entrusting our desires to God and then following thru by trusting Him, no matter what.

JAMES 2:23-24

23  And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. 24  Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

Works are not an alternative to faith, as both are necessary and complimentary to one another. Is there any other way to become a "Friend of God"? There cannot be. Begin seeing the impossible situations in your life thru the eyes of faith by putting them and yourself totally in the hands of God. Abraham proves that the Christian lifestyle is all about righteousness which is living it out by faith. It's not about you being a failure and things never working out for you. It's about God giving you opportunities to trust Him and you recognizing and seizing them.

JAMES 2:25

25  Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?

Rahab (more than likely an inn-keeper) put everything on the line "when she had received the messengers". She put her own life in jeopardy and that of her family, home, and business. This isn't just some fairy tale or cute story to hear in Sunday School. This is a woman endangering her family and whole livelihood because deep in her heart she knew this was what she had to do. She didn't know how it was all going to work out or if it would work out at all. She may not have even realized at the time how significant her role was in Israel's future. BUT THE SPIRIT INSIDE HER PREVAILED OVER HER FLESH AND SHE WAS USED MIGHTILY OF YAHWEH. Thank God for the great women of faith then and now who live it out thru their works.

JAMES 2:26

26  For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Now that you know the truth of life, do you want to live it out or just remain "dead"?!If we're not doing something with our faith, we may as well be "dead". Aren't you sick and tired of being like all the other zombie whites out there who may even talk a game, but whose faith is costing them nothing? If you really want to see change for the better for our people, then you must come to life by changing yourself into a doer of the Word of God. IT'S TIME TO START LIVING IT OUT.

The purpose of us being here in "the body" is to live it out because "faith without works is dead". As we are seeing continually throughout the Scriptures, this work not only involves outward deeds towards others, but it actually begins by first working inwardly on ourselves in our thoughts and attitudes. Maybe you think just knowing all the right answers is the way to be a solid Christian, no matter how you treat your brethren. Yet if you continue to refuse to work on yourself, your faith will remain dead and you'll never really want to love or help anyone else. Doing things to appease our conscience is just being shallow and will not result in any lasting "works".

REFLECTION

One day this flesh body will be a thing of the past. What will you have to show as proof that your faith was alive while you were in it? So many of our people are afraid to not only learn the truth but then to actually assume the mantle of responsibility that comes with it. Stop making excuses and start living it out.
