We live in a world of opinions. Every group has theirs and we all have our own, but in the end, only God's perfect judgment matters. As we've seen, the way to the next level is to unleash the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. What results from us is tested by the fire of God. Indeed our eternity is effected by what we choose to do in this life. In this our conclusion, Paul reveals the depth of importance of us making our lives count for the glory of God.
I CORINTHIANS 3:15
15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
Remember our context is with these Israelites at Corinth who are included in God's promise of complete and eternal salvation- ALL ISRAEL SHALL BE SAVED. As in every physical battle, each can lose their physical lives; so too in the spiritual battle we are to be engaged in each moment of each day. Our eternal spirit is the reason why, though all of a white man's works may be burned up and suffer loss, he himself shall be saved, yet so as by the fire of God's judgment. If we are going to amount to anything in the kingdom of God we must be convinced that only God's opinion matters. Otherwise we will waver in carnal double-mindedness.
Nobody wants to be a loser. According to this, the one who produces works which only burn up- "he shall suffer loss". What does this mean? That one did not follow through to get to the next level. They did not see the need to make their life count for Christ. You can make it in this world and have the applause of men, but if you do not produce something of value for the glory of God in your lifetime, you "shall suffer loss".
We all are to accomplish something for God's glory. Are we preparing for or in the process of doing it? Has our life produced, or is it a part of something that will make it thru the fires of God's judgment? Maybe you do not feel things have developed enough in your life to where you can directly perform what God wants you to do. Is there someone else you know of that is? No matter what stage we may be at in our walk, there is something we can be doing that is making our lives count in the building of God's kingdom. If all your life winds up consisting of is merely existing, making excuses, and procrastinating, your "work shall be burned" or consumed wholly; it will not stand God's judgment. Though Paul says the one who neglects his spiritual life "shall be saved" because of what Christ accomplished for Israel at Calvary, he shall suffer the loss of his reward. We only have one shot at making our lives count, we better not miss this opportunity.
Obviously, God has no need for anything that we produce in our lives which did not originate from His Spirit. This is not to say that God does not appreciate heart-felt sincerity. But our sincerity must be rooted in the Spirit and truth of God. Most of us are presently suffering loss not because the economy is bad, but due to our lives not really counting for anything. Oh we make plans but we never seem to get there. The longer we take to get there, the more we will suffer loss now and then. Why should God make our lives better if we never seem to follow through with our intentions to give Him our all? We might see the detriment we are experiencing not as just 'the way it is' but it could be the way we have made it ourselves because of our refusal to follow God and live by faith. It's time for white people to recognize that the way we make our mark is by just being who God intended for us to be.
I CORINTHIANS 3:16
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
Paul has already taught them this and was obviously reminding them of it. This applies individually and collectively. Paul is teaching that each white personally is "the temple of God" because "the Spirit of God dwelleth in you". He is also addressing the truth that when an assembly of believers gather with the proper spiritual purposes, there is indeed a special manifestation of God which can occur. The word "temple" or naos is defined in Liddel and Scott's Greek-English Lexicon as the inmost part of a temple. WE ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD AND HE IS IN THE INNERMOST PART OF OUR BEING AND ESSENCE. Therefore there is no legitimate excuse why we shouldn't be making our lives count spiritually. We have been told this, even before we came to Christian Identity, though we may not have realized it quite to the extent we do now. If you "Know" this, nothing will stop you from reaching your full potential and arriving at the next level of effectiveness and intimacy with God.
Through this, the Apostle is illustrating to them the ridiculousness of all their divisions. As Israelites, we all have the same Spirit of God dwelling in us. How can it be then that white families, assemblies, or even our race as a whole are so divided? Because we have not fully accepted what it means to be "the temple of God." Do you believe God "dwelleth in you" in this sense; that God Almighty actually lives inside of you? You are the residence of God; you are inhabited by THE GREAT I AM. He created you so that He can live and experience through you. He wants you to be His hands, His feet, His eyes, His ears, and His tongue in your world. He does not need this, He wants it. We must seek to fully embrace that we are His temple, operating in the power of His Spirit, no longer experiencing confusion or fear. The more fully we submit to this, the higher our lives for God will be raised.
THERE WILL BE NO EXCUSES FOR US NOT PRODUCING SOMETHING WHICH COUNTS FOR GOD. If we were non-white bastards who have but a short time anyway, who one day will be as if they never were, that would be one thing. But if you are white, you have the eternal Spirit of God living inside of you, God Himself. How could we expect to not be totally ashamed if we must stand before Him having never produced anything which has brought Him any lasting glory?! "Well I've been a faithful member of X Brand church for 60 years." Does that church teach the truth and take a stand for separation, against the ungodliness of racemixing? Does it encourage you to walk in the Spirit and live by faith? If not, then how could you ever expect for God to accept your years of service in a church which accepts fornication and functions based on fear? You can't. If you've spent that long in a church and still have never arrived at the level of making your life count for God, what makes you think another service will do you any good?
We are to come out from among the unclean and all the confusion. Also, if we've never stepped out in faith and trusted God, how can we ever expect for our works to pass the judgment of the Author and Finisher of the faith Himself? IT IS LIMITLESS WHAT YOU CAN DO AND PRODUCE FOR THE GLORY OF GOD. If it wasn't, then God wouldn't have any justification for burning up what is not acceptable to Him.
I CORINTHIANS 3:17
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
Here the King James translators glaringly expose their occassional, presumptive inconsistency by taking incredible liberties in this verse. Their translational error exposes their doctrinal bias. They use two English words, "defile" and "destroy" to translate what is the same Greek word used two times in the same verse, fthiro. But due to their agenda to promote the eternal hell and damnation doctrine, they had to translate it this way. Both usages are Strong's Exhaustive Concordance #5351 which is to ruin... to deprave... corrupt. Despite the translators' carnal agenda, Paul used the same word twice here to express the total opposite of modern Bible translators, which serves to emphasize the perfect balance of God's justice.
Repeatedly written throughout the Scriptures is, "Vengeance is mine I will repay, saith the LORD." As we've seen many times, God wants us to forgive and completely turn over the responsiblity of justice and punishment to Him when we've been hurt or offended. Only God has the knowledge, wisdom, and ability to meet out the exacted punishment for every particular offence or violation. Yet with the King James translators' interpretation, the impression is made that if someone defiles or brings ruin of whatever degree to the temple of God, God will completely destroy or annihilate them. Yet the actual meaning here thru Paul using the same word for the violation as well as the punishment, illustrates how God's justice and punishment are exact and perfect, not over-reactionary like some human king or pagan deity. To whatever measure one defiles or brings destruction to the temple of God, in exacted measure, God will defile or bring destruction to them. This is the correct understanding of this verse, for God is never cruel or reactionary, but always at perfect peace and in full control, even when it comes to His judgment.
Again, this is only in reference to Israelites individually or collectively as an assembly. Paul is not referring to non-whites here; their total destruction and annihilation is already promised by God throughout the Scriptures. An Israelite can defile himself or other whites as the temple of God, not only thru things we do, but also by what we refuse to do. When we neglect controlling our minds by dying daily, when we fail to be our brother's keeper, we are in a sense defiling the temple because it is not being used for the service and purpose God intended. "For the temple is holy", it is sacred, set apart only for service to God. With their envy, strife, and divisions to whatever extent, this assembly at Corinth was ruining, defiling, and destroying the temple of God. Paul was warning them that if they did not repent, God would ruin, defile, and destroy them to that identical extent.
We are only holy and set apart for God's service. Who are we to think we have any life or purpose outside of our God?! We can still enjoy life, in fact, life is far more enjoyable and fulfilling when we live a holy life than it is when we do not. It's just that we've gotten so used to living like we do. Yet the next level demands that we accept that God lives in us and He will never settle for second best; we are to make Him feel as welcome as we possibly can in our lives.
Our people scratch their heads because they just cannot understand how things have gotten so bad for us in this country. It's simple, whites are defiling and destroying the temple of God. Look at all the former great white nations right now and recognize the truth of this principle Paul is teaching here. Look at the ruin and destruction which has resulted from whites in this nation going along with gradually integrating the blacks, jews, and every thing else, into our Christian society and churches. Recognize the judgment for the whites who have defiled the temple of God by racemixing or going along with it. Consider the judgment for those who support God's enemies under the guise of "God's chosen people" because they are afraid to question their dead-dog pastors and all these whore politicians. Until one realizes that the only temple God dwells in is a white one, he is on the road to destruction. OUR RACE WILL NOT GET TO THE NEXT LEVEL UNTIL WE RECOGNIZE THAT IT'S WHAT WE HAVE DONE THAT'S GOTTEN US INTO THIS MESS. Until then it's just a matter of how far the destruction will go.
Again, we already know God is going to destroy all non-whites, and they will cease to exist because they are not the temple of God and do not have the Spirit of God in them. This is talking about God destroying even the body of Israelites who are already destroying themselves. If one does not want their life to count for God, they can arrive at a place where He will destroy them here. Yet as we have already seen, they themselves "shall be saved" or preserved "yet so as by fire".
I CORINTHIANS 3:18
18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
It's one thing to be deceived by someone else. It's quite another to deceive yourself. Though others may have deceived you in the past, if you're not making your life count for Christ, you are now deceiving yourself. One is deceiving himself if he thinks the meaning and keys to life exist anywhere outside of himself, "in this world". The only thing this world does is confuse, distract, and take away from our spiritual potential. The only way to godly wisdom is to "become a fool" when it comes to the ways of "this world" or age. Have you "become a fool"? If you have, then the wisdom which already lies within you is being set free.
The word "deceive" is Strong's Exhaustive Concordance #1818 which is to seduce wholly.... beguile. This is the same word Paul used in II Corinthians 11:3 to describe what the serpent did to deceive Eve in the Garden. This shows the extent our own carnal mind and flesh can deceive us. We don't need a serpent or jew to be there to deceive us. Their influence has already permeated into our minds enough to do the job. We must recognize it and repent.
I CORINTHIANS 3:19
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
Why do we listen to the supposed "wisdom of this world" when it is nothing more than "foolishness with God"? This is why Christ chose mostly fisherman to be His Disciples. This is why He has chosen you to follow Him closer than probably anyone you know or anyone else in your family. The most difficult part of coming to Christian Identity and then a life of living in the Spirit and in faith is all the things we have to be untaught. The more difficult it is for someone to come to the knowledge of the truth, the more they have been filled with the wisdom of this world.
We may be fooled by the wisdom of this world, but God is not. The inevitable success of God's plan of redemption through the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ proves that God "taketh the wise in their own craftiness":
I CORINTHIANS 2:7-8
7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
Remember, Peter could not understand why Christ kept talking about how He was going to be crucified. Christ had to rebuke him harshly for the words that he said in opposition to Him. So many times we think we have our lives all figured out, but ultimately, our 'wisdom' is nothing more than pure foolishness.
I CORINTHIANS 3:20
20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
Here we are back to vanity. Vanity is the only thing motivating "the thoughts of the" so-called "wise". 'You know some "wise" people like this, don't you? They are the ones who just will not accept what the plain Scriptures say. All they have to offer in their defense are vain reasonings and excuses. It leads them even to try and use the Bible against the truth. Like God, recognize "the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain." Our culture teaches that the more education we get and the more we learn how to do things the way the world does, the better off we will be. But the more of the truth we learn, the more we realize how brainwashed we have become thru the educational system both in schools and universities, and our continued indoctrination thru entertainment, television, and churches.
Why are the thoughts of the wise vain? Because they have only vain origination and motivation. They invoke a carnal, worldy mindset and attitude. Therefore they are vain because their power is only of and in the realm of this world. Through them no matter how hard we try, we cannot rise to the spiritual level that only comes thru following the indwelling God Who lives within you. Stop looking for those who only offer worldy wisdom, for all it will lead to is more of the same disappointment you've already experienced throughout your life. If we continue to follow worldly wisdom, we will not come to a place where our lives have counted for anything in the spiritual scheme of things.
I CORINTHIANS 3:21
21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are your's;
Men want glory and they glorify each other for their external, carnally-minded achievements. Realize, anything good that any of us does or comes up with, originally came from the God Who lives in us. What do you want to do for God? Stop worrying about the praise of men and understand that you already have the ability to perform God's perfect will within you- it's "yours". You cannot gain anything that will make you more valuable to God or of any lasting value; you already have that potential, it is already "yours". It's just a matter of us no longer living from the outside and beginning to live from within- "for all things are your's".
The greatest opposition to us taking possession of all things that are ours is thinking we can attain it thru the wisdom of the world. Vanity tells us that God's ways can become our ways and that His thoughts are really alot more like our thoughts than we may assume. So we wind up joining some man-made organization based on twisted logic: that we need someone else to interpret for us how to serve and worship God. Yet Paul says "all things are your's"; all that God has for you is readily available within. All we must do is repent of our vanity and start seeking all we can hope for in Christ. "For all things are your's" already; you have God living inside of you.
I CORINTHIANS 3:22
22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours; 23 And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.
What Paul is saying is that if you are an Israelite, "all" things "are your's", "whether" it come thru "Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come" because "ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's." YOUR IDENTIFICATION AS AN ISRAELITE IS EVERYTHING, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO WANTING TO MAKE YOUR LIFE COUNT FOR GOD. Stop trying to find your significance outside of who you are and embrace your identity- you are a son of God. Maybe you've had some good teachers- but the Master lives within you- "And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's."
We are either unashamed and on fire for God in this life, or we are ashamed and the result of our time here will burn up in God's judgment- that's the bottom line. God never makes it complicated, we do. We will only approach this level of the Christian life when we are fully convinced there is nothing in this world worth living for, only the world to come. The way to make this life count for God is to only consider His perfect judgment. Then your life will be not only on the proper foundation, but will be using the right materials to help build the kingdom of God.
