Necessity of Separation

The Kingdom of God can be manifested in the establishment of righteousness and justice. But in order to do so, among other requirements which I have already discussed in the last four articles, there must be separation. Lawful order and peace can be realized only through obedience of God’s true Covenant People in practicing separation. Racial and cultural separation is the remedy that refuses to submit to the ongoing destructive scheme to integrate all races and their religions and cultures. Separation refuses to back down in the face of popular political and religious tolerance and diversity.

Separation is Reality

Racial and cultural separation is everywhere but it is not admitted by the political and media cartel. White people fled to the newly created suburbs after the Federal and State governments forced racial integration and opened the flood gates to non-White immigration after the mid-1960s.  They banded together to create safe neighborhoods and places outside larger cities. They created racially homogeneous schools for their children to attend. Racial and cultural diversity and integration simply was not compatible with, nor tolerated by, White people. It was about survival.

For White people, their “White Flight” has moved them out even further beyond the suburbs to whole regions within America and other White lands.

Other races and sub-types also prefer to live and congregate among their own kind. Why? It’s the law of nature.

Separation is Biblical

Separation is not only the law of nature, but God requires it of His Covenant People.

When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance, when He separated the sons of man, He set the boundaries of the peoples according to the number of the sons of Israel. For the Lord’s portion is His people; Jacob is the allotment of His inheritance.” – Deuteronomy 32:8-9

This statement by Moses recounted the incident at the Tower of Babel when God confused “the language of the whole earth” [land] and scattered the families of the sons of Noah (Genesis11:1-9; 10:1-32).

From that time, God began to separate the descendants of Shem (Genesis 11:10-26) and further separated and called Abram (Abraham) and his physical descendants through Isaac and Jacob to be His holy (separated) Covenant People.

Later in history, God separated that people called Israel out of Egypt to make a national covenant with them (Exodus-Deuteronomy). They were to become God’s “own possession among all the peoples” (Exodus 19:5) and His inheritance.

God gave them the land of Canaan by order of annihilating the inhabitants of that land (although they didn’t complete the job). They were to be separated from all others in order to serve the God of their fathers and obey His laws. Separation was required to manifest God’s Kingdom among them with all its order, peace and prosperity.

To the Israelite believers in the Corinthian church, Paul admonished:

“Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, ‘I will dwell in them and walk among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate,’ says the Lord. ‘And do not touch what is unclean; and I will welcome you. And I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to Me,’ says the Lord Almighty.” – II Corinthians 6:16-18

God’s command then – be separate!  God’s command today – be separate!

Separation Begins in Local Assemblies

The reality is, however, it is becoming increasingly difficult to practice separation in the midst of racial and cultural integration. How then can we return to being a separate people?

I suggest it begins in the gathering of newly formed local churches. Many who now understand the covenant gospel truth are desperately lonely because they are without like-minded fellowship. I don’t know the answer to solve this situation. Yet I cannot believe that God does not have other people in nearby areas who are also seeking the same kind of fellowship. One thing to consider: God required Israel to move out of Egypt to become separate. It may require moving to a place where there is already an assembly of like-minded Israelites.

How to find them? Let’s at least begin to ask God to help us know how to find them. Maybe it requires starting to teach those who you know about the covenant faith and the true identity of God’s holy people. I have always hoped that my books would be used to help others do just that.

All I know is that new local churches must be created. Could you be the one that God uses as a catalyst to start something in your area?

One of the projects we would like to do is create a DVD teaching series based on my Covenant Heritage Series of books that would be used by others to help teach their family and friends, as well as in small study groups. It’s a huge project, as you can imagine, to do a professional job. Perhaps I will talk more about this project later.

In the meantime, bring the matter of separation before God and let Him lead you as to what you should and could do. With God, all things are possible!
