The Time of The Heathen
by Bertrand L. Comparet
In this time (2016) the heathen is all about. They are not just from countries that we think normally as heathen nor are they religions that are not Christian. Unfortunately, we have millions of people who call themselves Christian but their beliefs are like the heathen. You also have those who say they have no religion at all but they do have a belief system and that belief system is heathen.
This sermon was written back in the 1970s (maybe earlier).
Plus Critical Notes by Clifton A. Emahiser
It is clear to all that a terrific, truly world wide war is near, the final line up is being drawn. Those who hope to avoid it by compromise and appeasement of evil, are just willfully blind. Its purpose is the destruction of the white Christian people and everything they stand for. We have only two possible choices. (1) Either courageous defense of our lives, lands and our ideals and having faith in Yahweh’s promises of His aid. (2) Suicide, by cowardly surrender to our executioners.
Let’s look at the lineup! First Europe, all of it is white, Christian, and all of it wants to be free. However, half of it is conquered and enslaved, by the evil connivance of our own politicians. The free half of Europe is weakened and timid, as a result of the old anti-Christian strategy of getting Christian to fight against Christian. Nevertheless, all of them are with us in spirit.
Next is Asia. In the near east only Turkey, Jordan and Saudi Arabia are still on our side. Of these, only Turkey has any strength, and even its future is now uncertain, Egypt and Syria are deeply enmeshed in the Red web. The Jewish nation in Palestine is the spark in the powder keg which may explode into World War ill, at any time. In the middle east, Iran and Pakistan still resist Red domination, Iraq is doubtful, Afghanistan is Red by infiltration. Tibet is conquered by the Red Chinese armies and India is divided and impotent. Part of it wants to go all out communist under Krishna Menon, the rest was induced by Nehru to just partly oppose communism. Even this was only for reasons of his own personal ambition. Even this faction is sympathetic to communism as a weapon against the white race. In spite of this, India still alternates between begging and blackmailing us for billions of dollars in gifts, which neither helps their self respect nor ours.
In the far east, Burma and Thailand are under heavy and increasing Red Chinese pressure and infiltration, before which their will to resist is weakening. As to Taiwan, a number of liberal senators and congressmen in Washington, are keeping up the pressure for another and final betrayal of this last outpost of Chinese freedom. In the days when our State Department was openly pro-communist, we remember the infamous memorandum of policy which said, “Let Korea fall into the hands of Red China, but try not to let it look like we pushed her.” Now our State Department has grown tired of waiting for Laos to fall into Red hands, so they have quite openly pushed her. This probably sets the pattern for Taiwan also.
Japan still hangs in the balance, while three factions jockey for power. (1) The communists and socialists, always allied for the same purposes, many of whom our own government brought back to Japan after their training in Red China and Russia. We forced Japan to admit them and let them carry on their plots. (2) Those who remember their defeat at our hands with humiliation and still want revenge. However, they still admire General MacArthur for his courage and integrity, the only humiliation is in being beaten by weaklings! (3) The conservatives who are held in check by government weakness, forced on them by our own State Department and by fear of its further reprisals if they oppose the Reds with firmness.
Where will Japan stand next year? All Asia admires only a winner. There isn’t a man on that continent who can understand our respect for a good loser. Finally the Philippines, they are friendly now, but if either Taiwan or Japan falls to the Reds, can the Philippines hold out? The best we can hope for is neutrality. Remember the Irishman’s famous question, who are we neutral against? Vietnam will be sold out to the communists by a compromise deal.
Then there is Africa, the one really civilized nation in it, the Union of South Africa, wants to be on our side. However, we allow our politicians to put heavy pressure on the other free nations to line up against it. The old anti-Christian trick of setting Christian against Christian. As for the rest of the area, across the northern end of Africa are the Arab nations, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco. There, all civilization, in the present sense of the word, is that of the whites who have already lost control. The native population is Moslem, still living and thinking in the dark ages of 1,200 years ago, when they conquered North Africa. They are unfriendly to the West.
Middle Africa is all negro, except for the few whites among them. These blacks are nearly all savages, with cannibalism still practiced in much of it. Quite recently, in the new Ivory Coast Republic, a member of their parliament was eaten by the natives of his district. Yet these cannibals have as much vote in the United Nations as the United States!
Now all the different tribes are independent nations, each having a vote in the United Nations. Ethiopia, Sudan, Liberia, Ghana, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Cameroon, Togo, Nigeria, the Mali Federation, Ivory Coast Republic, Gambia, Uganda, Tanganyika, Chad, Zanzibar, Rwanda, Urundi, Kenya, Nyasaland, Mauritania, Malagasy and two different Congo Republics. Twenty-eight negro nations, still savages, all hating the white man and his civilization. The cannibals alone can far outvote the entire civilized world!
Note there is no Christian nation against us. Five are Moslem, the rest are pagan, this shouldn’t surprise us. Yahweh has said that this would be the time of the heathen, listen to Yahweh’s word. Ezekiel 30:1-3 tells us, “The word of Yahweh came again unto me, saying, Son of man, prophesy and say: Thus saith Yahweh; Howl ye, woe worth the day! For the day is near, even the day of Yahweh, a cloudy day: It shall be the time of the heathen.” As Yahweh prophesied, the heathen turn against us, they demand total independence, then turn to Russia and China. Psalm 2:1-3 warns us, “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against Yahweh and His anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.”
There are some who refuse to see that the white man brought these savages the only civilization they ever knew. They ask what right had we to go into Africa, we are just trespassers who should be thrown out, let the savages be the masters of this continent. These people overlook the fact that nothing merely happens, it always has a cause. The cause of the white Christians ruling these lands, trying to civilize them, it was so ordained by Yahweh. Psalm 18:43 states, “… thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me.”
There are some who don’t like this, a cowardly fear of our own greatness is unworthy of us. Our destiny is set by Yahweh, and our own part is to go where He leads. Therefore when the heathen assemble and organize themselves against us, they are not merely our enemies, they are Yahweh’s enemies, and must receive the consequences.
Psalm 83:1-4 says, “Keep not thou silence, O Yahweh: hold out Thy peace, and be not still, O God. For lo, Thine enemies make tumult; and they that hate Thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against Thy people, and have consulted against Thy hidden ones. They have said, Come and let us cut them off from being a nation.”
These black nations accuse us of oppression and imperialism because we have only given them half of our wealth, instead they want all of it. They want us to surrender our sovereignty and become just a province of the United Nations, so they can rule us reducing us to their level. However, their alliance against us is condemned by Yahweh. In Isaiah 54:15,17 Yahweh tells us, “Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by Me: whoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake. … No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of Yahweh, and their righteousness is of Me, saith Yahweh.”
It is written in Zephaniah 3:8, “Therefore wait ye upon Me, saith Yahweh, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for My determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them Mine indignation, even all My fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of My jealousy.” Therefore, our part is not to retreat in panic, not to apologize in shame for having tried to civilize savages, not to beggar ourselves trying to buy the friendship of those who hate Yahweh.
Critical note by Clifton A. Emahiser: In general, with this presentation, Comparet made several meaningful points, but he shows a tendency to take some passages of Scripture out-of-context. He makes a statement and then quotes part of a verse of Scripture to support it thusly: “The cause of the white Christians ruling these lands, trying to civilize them, it was so ordained by Yahweh. Psalm 18:43 states, ‘… thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me’.” By “these lands”, Comparet means places like: Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Syria, Burma, Thailand, Taiwan, Laos, the Philippines, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Ethiopia, Sudan, Liberia, Ghana, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Cameroon, Togo, Nigeria, Gambia, Uganda, Tanganyika, Chad, Zanzibar, Rwanda Urundi, Kenya, Nyasaland, Mauritania, Malagasy and two different Congo Republics. He cites Psalm 18:43 and claims “it was so ordained by Yahweh.”
Comparet fails to comprehend that at Psalm 18:43, David had found the kingdom of Israel as king Saul had left it. Saul was instructed to exterminate all of the Amalekites (an Edomite tribe), men, women, infants, along with all their livestock. But Saul saved king Amalek and some of his livestock alive in disobedience to Yahweh. In short, Saul wasn’t getting the job done! So when David inherited the kingdom, he found himself in charge of Saul’s failures. 2 Samuel ch. 8 gives further details. At 2 Sam. 8:14, it is recorded that David made servants of Edomites. Surely, this could not have been Yahweh’s sovereign will, but rather His permissive will until such a time as these Edomites were also to be exterminated, man, woman and infant. So until such a time, David during his reign, was to rule over them. But Comparet wrongly uses Psalm 18:43 as a justification for ruling over all these other unclean heathen nations of our day!
