A Subject study of Social Order
“Brotherhood & Brotherly Love“
Pro_17:17-18 A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
A man void of understanding striketh hands, and becometh surety in the presence of his friend.
Brenton LXX Pro 17:17 Have thou a friend for every time, and let brethren be useful in distress; for on this account are they born.
Pro 17:17 Have thou a friend for every time, and let brethren be useful in distress; for on this account are they born.
Pro 17:18 A foolish man applauds and rejoices over himself, as he also that becomes surety would make himself responsible for his own friends.
ABP Pro 17:18 A foolish man claps and rejoices over himself, as also the one guaranteeing a loan by surety for his own friend.
Today when we read from Lev 19 in resuscitation we read of various statutes: laws that are the expectations of a social order or a society which is simply called ‘thy people’ ‘thy brethren’ or ‘thy neighbor’.
Now it goes with out saying that all are not ‘thy people’, ‘thy brethren’ or ‘thy neighbor’ or else such language would be un-needed.
And let me point out another concept to consider from scripture, the Law of Moses is written in various ways, using different words so that the judges of Israel and the people might have the ability to better define the spirit of the law of God in matters of understanding, wisdom, righteousness, holiness and even in times of adjudication or judgment.
Look at what was said in:
Lev_19:13 Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning.
Now contrast this with the same law in Deuteronomy as it elaborates the concept more:
Deu_24:14 Thou shalt not oppress an hired servant that is poor and needy, whether he be of thy brethren, or of thy strangers that are in thy land within thy gates:
Deu 24:15 At his day thou shalt give him his hire, neither shall the sun go down upon it; for he is poor, and setteth his heart upon it: lest he cry against thee unto the LORD, and it be sin unto thee.
Now in this context what can we derive?
The Law that speaks of neighbor is speaking of the brother and the stranger, because it is unjust to not pay anyone who is poor that you have an obligation to pay at the end of what every day you have specified.
This is justice.
Lev_24:22 Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for ‘one of your own country’: (H249): for I am the LORD your God.
Lev 24:22 Justice will be one to the foreigner, and to the native inhabitant; for I am the LORD your God.
Here the word ‘one of your own country’ is one Hebrew word Ezrach, this means lit. ‘a sprout’, that is as from a seed, a zarah- this is one born of the race of the land of Israel the national posterity of Israel, that is simply of the Brotherhood of the Israelite tribes, all born to a common father.
In the very words of the law that many “social justice warriors / activists” use to promote amalgamation, and miscegenation, multi-culturalism, what is rather found is a standard of perfect justice for all who live in the neighbor hood, either of the brother hood or not, either a citizen or not. But the distinction is clear.
And beyond that, the laws that do distinguish between the native sprout and the stranger are still nevertheless just, because they are the righteousness of God.
And for the record we should never ignore the concept of a ‘social justice warrior’, they are self-proclaimed warriors, and what are they waring against? This very concept of social order and brotherhood as it promotes brotherly love according to scripture and nature. These people are not just activists, that are at war, and the war is against the LORD and His Christ, no doubt, but they are homed in on the European family of what was once Christendom: they hate your race, your nation, your forefathers, and their posterity; this is a war against your brotherhood, and sadly Christians are so confused on the subject because of their ignorance of the law of God that they are aiding the destruction of the principles that made Christian European nations great.
Turn with me to
Psa_36:5 Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.
Psa 36:6 Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast.
Psa 36:7 How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
Psa 36:8 They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.
So here is my point everyone from all men to all beasts are preserved by the judgments or justice of God. Those who can trust under the shadow of YHWH’s wings as he reveals himself in His Holy Law experience the love of God and satisfaction, and the fatness of their own house in pleasure.
This is the effect of the Law of God’s Social justice, it makes peace in a nation among brethren and stranger, but it does not confuse the difference rather it asserts the distinction as God inspired, and ordained.
In this way while Israel may specifically be in focus , but all people who adopt Israel’s Law may also say:
Psa_89:14 Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
Psa 89:15 Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.
Psa 89:16 In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.
So, yes, it is true, just and holy to never defrauded one living as a neighbor peaceably in ‘your’ gates, ‘your’ land, and that in these ways Christians must be the hallmark of Justice.
You cannot rob anyone living near you, a brother or a stranger in your gates, that is in your personal village, township, bough, city, county or state or country. In any concentric way moving out.
Pro_17:17 Have thou a friend for every time, and let brethren be useful in distress; for on this account are they born.
There is a place and an order, a justice, for all times. But until God’s law reigns as Justice in our mind, brothers cannot be useful in distress, or friends in their time, and beyond that the native born cannot help the stranger appropriately or effectively because the power of native land is broken when the brotherhood is broken.
Deu_15:5 Only if thou carefully hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all these commandments which I command thee this day.
Deu_15:6 For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee.
This is the blessing of the LORD…
And it is Just, just in the social order as well as
Lev 19:13 Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning.
Gates are a concentric geographical consideration. Concentric-ation is a usual model in all biblical thought, in it is by concentric relationships that the brother is preferred in before the cousin, and the cousin / uncle’s son before the 4th cousin, and those of a nation before the race and the race before the stranger to that race.
What is meant by concentric?
Simply, I mean this, if you look at your self as he center of an onion or a target, there are rings that get bigger as you move further away.
The biblical model for love is ‘Thou shalt love thy neighbor and thy brother as thy self’.
This scripture can not confuse the importance of ones self and those things closer to your self, because as you move further out from your self into the next concentric ring, a new self is acknowledged and that brootherhood then is obligated to love the next concentric neighbor near it as it’s self.
But this does not tun the concentric brootherhood into a concentration with no distinctions.
Lev_25:23 The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.
Lev 25:24 And in all the land of your possession ye shall grant a redemption for the land.
Lev 25:25 If thy brother be waxen poor, and hath sold away some of his possession, and if any of his kin come to redeem it, then shall he redeem that which his brother sold.
Lev 25:26 And if the man have none to redeem it, and himself be able to redeem it;
Lev 25:27 Then let him count the years of the sale thereof, and restore the overplus unto the man to whom he sold it; that he may return unto his possession.
Notice that the preference of land redemption is in the kindred or the brothehood
Lev 25:35 And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee.
Lev 25:36 Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee.
Lev 25:37 Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals for increase.
Lev 25:38 I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan, and to be your God.
Lev 25:39 And if thy brother that dwelleth by thee be waxen poor, and be sold unto thee; thou shalt not compel him to serve as a bondservant:
Lev 25:40 But as an hired servant, and as a sojourner, he shall be with thee, and shall serve thee unto the year of jubile:
Lev 25:41 And then shall he depart from thee, both he and his children with him, and shall return unto his own family, and unto the possession of his fathers shall he return.
And again, God’s salvation and grace as found in the sacrament of the jubilee is the focal point of worship here, and the brotherhood, the kindred are redeemed by its observation in a very concentric way.
The law calls it rigor and oppression to treat one’s brother, one of his own nation and race, his brotherhood like a stranger, a non-relative, that is because strangers are not to be treated as brothers and brothers as strangers in every way.
Is specifically encouraging this concentric familial society.
Lev_25:45 Moreover of the children of the strangers that do sojourn among you, of them shall ye buy, and of their families that are with you, which they begat in your land: and they shall be your possession.
Lev 25:46 And ye shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your bondmen for ever:
but over your brethren the children of Israel, ye shall not rule one over another with rigour.
Lev_25:47 And if a sojourner or stranger wax rich by thee, and thy brother that dwelleth by him wax poor, and sell himself unto the stranger or sojourner by thee, or to the stock of the stranger’s family:
Lev_25:48 After that he is sold he may be redeemed again; one of his brethren may redeem him:
Lev 25:49 Either his uncle, or his uncle’s son, may redeem him, or any that is nigh of kin unto him of his family may redeem him; or if he be able, he may redeem himself.
This is a concentric brotherhood of faith, because God’s Law governs such forms of brotherly love to be performed faithfully according to his Law.
Notice how God specifies the order from furthest to nearest when a brother is poor and owned by a stranger in the terms of redemption:
- his brethren may redeem him:
- Either his uncle,
- or his uncle’s son, may redeem him,
- or any that is nigh of kin unto him of his family may redeem him;
- or if he be able, he may redeem himself.
And yet, the scripture say of those not of the brethren of the nation,
- ” they shall be your bondmen for ever: “
Some one might say this isn’t fair, it is not equale?
That is right, it is not, but it is socially Just in God’s Social order, this is because the economy of a nation is resident in its self-awareness as a brotherhood, and the economy of a brotherhood is resident in its ability to help in adversity, that is brotherly love.
Deu_23:19 Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury:
Deu 23:20 Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it.
Usery is interest, plain and simple.Tto lend any money or any food or any thing to a brother for more than equale pay back is called usery, and it is a sin, and to YHWH God it is called rigor as is bondage. This is because credit =debt is bondage and bondage = slavery.
Lev_25:43 Thou shalt not rule over him (thy brother) with rigour; but shalt fear thy God.
Lev_25:46 And ye shall take them (the strangers) as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your bondmen for ever: but over your brethren the children of Israel, ye shall not rule one over another with rigour.
Another economic example of rigour is
Lev_25:53 And as a yearly hired servant shall he (Your brother) be with him (the stranger more wealthy): and the other shall not rule with rigour over him in thy sight.
Lev 25:54 And if he be not redeemed in these years, then he shall go out in the year of jubile, both he, and his children with him.
What is this saying? It is saying that a stranger never has the right to rule over a home born citizen one of the brotherhood as he can be ruled in the land of the brotherhood.
The principle is clear, it should bother you to see one of your brethren be oppressed by a stranger any where, but especially in the land God gave to your ancestors by his providence.
If you do not like the prerogatives of the law of God in regard to a concentric genetic brotherhood, that is your own problem and personal sin. But the fact of its truth is as clear as fine glass.
God does not allow the vexation a stranger, to treat them unjust or to be a respecter of our brother’s person in justice in regards to the law of God.
Go with me to
Exo_22:21 Thou shalt neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.
There is a variety of law which demonstrate this truth; And a confusion often is, that God has the right to legislate by his law what is just, and what is to be called oppression or vexation on differentiating levels of the concentric society. In other word’s it is not oppressive to rule a stranger with riggor as a bond servant in your land. This is Just
It is not vexing for God’s law to allow you to profit off of unrelated people in terms of Usury, and in terms of bondage.
What is wrong is to not do justice to a stranger because he is strange.
But I will tell you what is oppressive and what is vexing and is what God hates, and that is a brotherhood that treats each other like strangers, and a brotherhood that allows strangers to rule in their sight over the brethren.
The laws of Scripture, by the Spirit of God as given to Moses are absolutely 100% based in the concentric perspective and absolute truth of family, the nation is a group of families, and the leadership of the kin should always be kin-g, even down to the level of a common man who is master to another common man, his master should always be of his kin, and the national law of God for social order established that a brother and one of the racial brotherhood always has the right to redeem his brother from the hand of a stranger, therefore such oppression and rigor would be severely limited in a Just social order according to God’s Law.
Neh_5:1 And there was a great cry of the people and of their wives against their brethren the Jews.
Neh 5:2 For there were that said, We, our sons, and our daughters, are many: therefore we take up corn for them, that we may eat, and live.
Neh 5:3 Some also there were that said, We have mortgaged our lands, vineyards, and houses, that we might buy corn, because of the dearth.
Neh 5:4 There were also that said, We have borrowed money for the king’s tribute, and that upon our lands and vineyards.
Neh 5:5 Yet now our flesh is as the flesh of our brethren, our children as their children: and, lo, we bring into bondage our sons and our daughters to be servants, and some of our daughters are brought unto bondage already: neither is it in our power to redeem them; for other men have our lands and vineyards.
Neh 5:6 And I was very angry when I heard their cry and these words.
Let me elaborate upon the antithesis of a concentric family order in society from scripture, what does it look like when a nation within the geographical boarders stop thinking in a concentric way in terms of brotherhood, brotherly love in a social order and by Biblical social justice
Here is the opposite of what we read in Lev_25:53-54
“And as a permanent slave shall Your brother be with the stranger more wealthy, and he shall rule over him with rigour in thy sight. And if he shall not be redeemed then he shall go out, there shall be no jubilee, he, or his children with him.
And this shall happen the land given to this people’s parents, the posterity of those who fought and blead and dies and lived to establish liberty with their brethren who came after them will forget the Law of the God who saved them and delivered them a land flowing with milk and honey. And in their own land those sprouts of the native seed shall come forth into an environment of oppression and a culture of death that event the posterity will not know for lack of the knowledge of the Law of God:
Pro_29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Deu_28:41 Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.
Deu 28:42 All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume.
Deu 28:43 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.
Deu 28:44 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.
Deu 28:45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:
Deu 28:46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.
Deu 28:47 Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;
Deu 28:48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.
Deu 28:49 The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;
Deu 28:50 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young:
Listen to how it is spoken of by David:
Psa 106:40 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.
Psa 106:41 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them.
Psa 106:42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.
Psa 106:43 Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked him with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.
It is as conclusive as it gets, rigor, and oppression is definable in a social order, not when strangers are treated as strangers to a brotherhood, but when justice for nation and a people are not according to the law of God.
In our day and age Psalm 106 is a blessing of liberty, isn’t it?
Other peoples of other nations or ethnicities other races ruling over you in government in the land your fathers established, civilized, fought for, died for and bred you to live? Isn’t that a blessing today?
Who wants redeemed from such a tolerant society?
We have even moved on to v. 42 voluntarily let the enemies of your heritage you, race and your, ethnicity oppress you and be subject to it? We should have leaders that are not of our kin rather than having kin-gs rule over us , right?
No, rulers of our kin, those taken from among our own brethren as commanded by God:
Deu_17:15 Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.
When a foreign people rule, when you do not differentiate between brothers and stranger it is a curse.
And when the leaders of the church and state are mixed in opinion and in race nothing good can come about which is good for the future.
Deu_23:1 He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD.
Deu 23:2 A bastard ( H4464 ) shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD.
From an unused root mian. to alienate; a mongrel…
The word translated bastard comes from 2 Hebrew words: mem- spotted or blemished and Zur Strange.
And do not think for a moment that amalgamation will solve everything… it never will.
What will solve everything is if we obey the law of God and proclaim to every living creature the gospel of Jesus Christ like our European ancestors once did and have society ordered by the Law of God.
God solemnly forbids the leaders of the Congregation of the people to be even of a tardy-base, a base tard.
According to the justice of the Law, it takes at least 10 generations for the tradition of a blemished base to be resolved enough for a child born to a native born father and a racially strange mother to be considered fit for leadership of the congregation. Why? Because of mixed interests, plain and simple. Mixed heritage, amalgamated feeling of self.
It is the standard of the Law of God, to have self-rule of a people, a nation and a race.
This is God’s normal, his justice and his goodness, his economy of social order regardless of if we hate the fact our ancestors believed it or not.
