How we live for God is all that matters in this life. Nothing is more important than wanting to be used by God. How strong a Christian do you want to be? We can only know how far we have to get there, by analyzing our own attitude and experience. All that will count in the end is what we used to build up the kingdom of God. Given what we've already seen, the Apostle Paul wanted these Corinthian believers to get to that next level spiritually as well.
I CORINTHIANS 3:9
9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.
The only way to fully be "together with God" is to labor for Him. He is the Creator, Who not only knows what we have need of, but what He wants us to become. We participate in this only with our white brothers and sisters. Now that we know the truth, any search for new companionship shouldn't just be based on worldly things we have in common. Realizing now you are "God's", pray He will raise up others with whom you can be "laborers together with God". To meet others who love God above all else is truly a blessing. This is yet another desire God wants to fulfill in all our lives.
We are to work together as His "husbandry" as God is our Husbandman. The term "husbandry" is Strong's Exhaustive Concordance #1091 which means cultivatable... a farm. Paul is illustrating to them God's approach with local assemblies of Israelite believers. Individually we realize we are all a work in progress. But collectively as God's farm, we are a work in progress, together. In an husbandry, the whole idea is cultivation, care, and growth; to work and even protect something that sustains life. A farm can provide both continual, overall health and much anticipated harvests, but none of that is possible without cooperation and dedication on the part of the laborers. Our Husbandman sees the efforts we make to reach and bless our brethren and He will reward us according to His grace.
Being "God's building" is to be built up or edified by God in your faith. There are other Israelites somewhere who need what God has given you to provide. Your eventual efforts toward them could be the beginning of a wonderful new journey in Christ. Building one another up spiritually is to be a top priority in our relationships. Having the opportunity to worship and serve God together with other believers is truly a blessing. It gives us the opportunity to find out what we're really made of. Yet let us never forget as God's building, we must seek to build and be built on the right foundation.
Despite what we've witnessed from denominationalism, the Christian ministry isn't about competing for more numbers of people but co-operating for greater opportunities and more power with God. The modern-day model set forth by theological colleges and seminaries for controlling and ruling their churches today is that of molding thier potential pastors to view themselves as CEOs; the goal being to end up as the Hagees or the Grahams. Whereas we see Paul teaching something entirely different. God's people aren't just numbers; that is one-worldism and modernism. As God's people we are family, something worth investing our hearts and minds in to produce wonderful harvests and have a place where we can be used and be lifted.
The next level is about appreciating the opportunity to be involved in the spiritual development of your brothers and sisters. Being God's husbandry and building we recognize how God gives our life meaning, structure, and stability. We always look to make improvements and the necessary repairs as they arise. We live and breathe because God wants us to produce something of value with our lives. God's people grow and build one another up. We can know what we are made of by looking at just what it is we are investing in the lives of those we claim to love.
I CORINTHIANS 3:10
10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
How have all of these churches gotten themselves in the shape they're in? Thru varying degrees of compromise and no discipline... Thru being full of hot air and empty emotions, as they gradually and unknowingly dwindle into stagnation. What is missing? Among other things, a total reliance upon God. Churches today have their own agendas and most of it is nothing more than relying upon their own perceived self-righteousness and self-sufficiency. This is what many whites tend to drift toward when we don't know who we are, just to find ourselves on a wrong foundation. All we ever did was follow blind leadership; it's no wonder we never ended up on a sure foundation. No, we ended up in a web of confusion, still having far more questions than answers. Don't ever get to where you're afraid to ask questions. Never forget that the only reason we can do anything is because of "the grace of God which is given unto" us.
Paul was a "wise masterbuilder" like an architect, planting and building Christian assemblies. If Paul had not "laid the foundation" there would be nothing for "another" to "buildeth thereon". Paul knew the only reason he was building up Christianity rather than tearing it down (by still murdering Christians) was the grace of God. This too is the only difference between us and all the unawakened whites around us, even those who just can't seem to get out of their religious rut- the grace of God. But just like with you, God can instantly awaken them to a hunger for the truth by His grace.
How did Paul lay the foundation? He preached the Scriptures to them which at that time would have only been the Old Testament. The foundation has not been laid until the Christ of the Scriptures has been proclaimed. The jesus who loves everybody, the non-judgmental jesus, and the jew jesus are all examples of pathetic lies being spread as a foundation. Yet as we see in the Scriptures, Christ only came for Israel, cleansed the temple of His enemies, and was a white Galilean. These things are a part of the only foundation which has ever made a difference in our lives.
Most churches were never on the proper foundation. Those that once were, have since drifted into multiculturalism and egalitarianism masquerading as the modern "church growth" movement. Yet we never see numbers being emphasized as a factor to measure the spiritual growth of an assembly anywhere in the New Testament. Though we should desire as many of our brethren as we can reach to come to the true faith, we don't see Paul expressing any concern over numbers anywhere in His Epistles, including this one to these Greek Corinthians. What Paul emphasized is for us to "take heed" or beware, to be extremely careful what materials and methods we use to influence and help build white lives around us.
I CORINTHIANS 3:11
11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
We all know the most important part of any building is the foundation. Therefore if we are off on the Person of "Jesus Christ", then what we're building has no Scriptural basis and will not stand. Things such as sincerity, worldly wisdom, and emotionalism cannot make up for being off on Christ any more than using the best paint or buying the best windows can make up for having a poor foundation. WHAT YOU BUILD IS ONLY AS STRONG AS WHAT FOUNDATION YOU'VE BUILT UPON. What you are made of is tremendously impacted by what your life and faith are based upon. At the conclusion of the Sermon on the Mount, Christ spoke of foundations and their consequences:
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. 28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
If it doesn't happen beforehand, when all is said and done, if what we've built our lives, families, and assemblies upon isn't built on the Christ of the Scriptures, they will fall. Unfortunately, our race has spent too much time trying to formulate and lay "other" foundations "than that is laid" already "which is Jesus Christ." Thru all these modern versions of 'Christianity' known collectively as JEWdeochristianity, the jews have sought to uproot and usurp Christ as the foundation, and the majority of our people who identify as followers of Christ, have fallen for it. BUT IF WE WILL REPENT AND CHOOSE TO BUILD UPON THE TRUTH OF THE RESURRECTED GODMAN YAHSHUA CHRIST, THERE ARE NO LIMITS ON HOW FAR WE CAN GO FOR HIS GLORY!
Like Paul, we lay the foundation by learning and teaching the Scriptures cover to cover. We recognize that Yahweh God created the white race and we are to be separate from non-whites since this foundation is not for them. Christ died for reconciliation only to Israel, His white Bride. God has His enemies, who are everyone other than your white brothers and sisters in this world, and we stand upon Him, against them. We follow the indwelling Spirit and live by faith, in total dependency upon Christ to sustain and bless us.
Who's "sayings" or words are we using to help build our families, homes, and others; is it Hollywood, or any of the other jew outlets such as the news or even, the church? Or are you looking always to build on the firm foundation with materials which only God can provide? There is no "other foundation" because "Jesus Christ" only came for Israel. But we must also be willing to recognize what we are building with, as to what it really is:
I CORINTHIANS 3:12
12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
As we've seen, building on any other foundation is not an option. But even if you're on the right foundation, you must still build with the right materials. As the Book of Ecclesiastes teaches us, all things are made for a purpose. The things God wants us to build with Paul likens to "gold, silver" and "precious stones" which provide among many other things, strength, value, and beauty to your life. That would mean all other things are like "wood, hay" and "stubble" in comparison; for they are weak, ordinary, and combustible. WHY SETTLE FOR INSUFFICIENT COUNTERFEITS WHEN GOD HAS PRODUCED THE PERFECT MATERIALS FOR US TO BUILD WITH! He has provided us the spiritual equivalents to gold, silver, and precious stones found within our Spirit, thru His Word, and in our race. What we see all around us in this present evil world, including the non-whites themselves, is the equivalent to wood, hay, and stubble. Therefore a search within must occur to see what you are using to build your life, constituting at this point, what you are made of. To get to the next level you must be honest with yourself about where your time is being spent and what your heart is set and depending upon.
We need to become concerned about what we're made of when we are reminded of one day having to stand before God after we've lived this life. Our testimony will only become and remain as strong as what we use to build the kingdom of God around us. How confident are you that you're doing everything you can to spiritually influence your children and grandchildren even? What you've built your life out of may be made evident by what you're children's interest level is concerning the things of God. They cannot get there without being brought face to face with the Foundation Himself. If what they've been built with is worldly or even mere religious materials, it very well could be mostly wood, hay, and stubble. Yet, if they are beginning to see who they are and who they must remain separate from, the gold, silver, and precious stones of truth, faith, love, and so on will be evident.
Though each may or may not have other uses, when we consider wood, hay, and stubble together, we think of something which is good materials for a fire. As we have seen throughout the Scriptures, God's enemies are going to be burned up and destroyed. Therefore what results from our involvement with them will come to nothing as well. They dwell among us but we are to see them only as objects of God's wrath. No white should ever expect any reward from God for anything we've done for them, directly or indirectly. Involvement with them is a waste of our time. For there will be no hiding any of our compromises from the eyes of God:
I CORINTHIANS 3:13
13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.
This is where the rubber meets the road. This is where we find out what we're made of. What results from our lives will one day be shown forth; it will be as clear as "day". Since it "shall be revealed by fire" there can be no doubt of it's quality or the lack thereof. Whether we like it or not, "the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is". Yet if it means everything to us to live for God, we will not be ashamed before Him. If you can align with this idea, you are preparing for the next level; your priorities have raised to a much higher plain.
If at all possible, we must find out now what we're made of "for the day shall declare it". For what we end up producing from our lives will undergo God's judgment. We must want to see what's really happening in our lives right now thru His eyes. What "sort" of labor for God is your life showing forth? The next level is on the other side of you beginning to act upon these spiritual concerns.
12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
This isn't here to merely reference the actual eye color of Christ (though the hottest fire is blue) but that of His eyes of judgment, which rest upon His people continually. His eyes here represent the refining fire of His Spirit within us, which not only observe and judge us, but cleanse and purify us in our daily walk. Not only does He see in us but He wants to live thru us, and for us to become just like Him. As we yield to His purposes more and more, there is a smile which must appear on His face, just as we are pleased when our children love and obey us. All of this will be made plain on the day of Christ's judgment. But it could all be made much clearer to us now as we seek to become more in the future than what we are now.
I CORINTHIANS 3:14
14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
The only "work" which will "abide" or remain after being tested by God's judgment, is that which pleases Him and has withstood His fire. Note the mercy which is mingled with God's judgment in this statement by Paul. God is not in the business of holding grudges. For this implies if what an Israelite ends up producing isn't pleasing to Him, God's not going to use it against you later on, though you are not rewarded for it either. Notice, the only thing left over after the fires of God's judgment are only that for which we can be rewarded; the rest is burned it up. No matter how harsh and cruel a picture the world tries to paint of our God, we must never forget how gracious and merciful He is towards His people, even in judgment.
What we must realize (eternally speaking), is that no one will be better off than the Israelite who takes these things to heart and spends the rest of his days seeking to help God build up His kingdom, His way. If one's work passes successfully thru the fires of God's judgment, "he shall receive a reward." Either way, this will be the ultimate and final proof of what we are really made of.
From our perpective, there can be so many uncertainties. From Yahweh's perspective, there are no uncertainties. God knows what each of us are made of and exactly how much we can bear. Our focus must be on getting to where we look forward to His judgment rather than dreading it, by possessing an unquenchable yearning for His reward.
