THE SHEEP AND THE GOATS by Bertrand L. Comparet
Today our newspapers, radio, television, every media of public communications, is turned into a propaganda machine flooding us with Red inspired propaganda against all discrimination. They demand complete integration of all races, first in the cafes and hotels, then in the schools and finally in the churches. They have induced fellow traveler clergymen to preach integration from their pulpits. Though first they denied it, these propagandists now admit that intermarriage and mongrelization of the races is their real purpose. Sometimes they try to justify their activities by preaching false doctrines of a so-called universal brotherhood of man and fatherhood of God.
Here Comparet exhibits a very narrow perspective, where he seems to think that our system is good, and Communism bad, while Jewish bankers were behind the success of both Capitalism and Communism, and both have the same Jewish agenda.
The dawn of Liberalism brought with it concepts such as egalitarianism and the universal brotherhood of man. For over three hundred years now we have been fed these ideals in our propaganda, and in one way or another most all of us have accepted them to some degree. But not long ago, relatively speaking, the other and non-Adamic races were not even considered to be people, and all Christians understood that Jews were devils, even if they understood it only because they believed the gospel of Christ. Most men today do not even realize how deep their own indoctrination is, even when they claim to know better. Comparet is right, in that today many so-called churches do indeed encourage race-mixing as a path to world peace and harmony, and he wrote this at least 40 years ago. Continuing with Comparet:
Of all satanic false doctrines, this is one of the worst. It is completely contrary to the Bible, which always teaches division and segregation of the races.
Jesus always said that He had come to divide and separate not to mix everyone together. In Matthew 25:31-33 He says, “And when the Son of man shall come in His glory and all the holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory: And before Him shall be gathered all nations: and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats; and He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.”
When I split with Eli James, he also tried to explain this parable away as a judgment of individuals, claiming that even goats had an opportunity to do good, as a superficial reading of the parable suggests. However here Comparet says a lot of what I would also assert, and he condemns the notion that this represents a judgment of individuals, so we continue:
Note that this is not the judgment of individual persons, it is a division and separation of nations. He goes on to tell how the sheep nations are given the kingdom prepared for them from the foundation of the world while the goat nations are cast into the fire prepared for the devil and his angels. Who are these nations? A sheep nation can only be a nation made up of sheep and a goat nation one consisting of goats. Therefore, let’s find out who are the sheep?
Now Comparet did not discuss the parable of the sheep and the goats beyond this point. Rather, he went on to discuss the sheep from other perspectives and other scriptures. But it is obvious that he agreed that the sheep and the goats were distinguished by their appearance. A shepherd does not inquire of sheep or goats as to whether they were good or bad, so that a bad sheep may be treated as a goat or a good goat as a sheep. Rather, the shepherd separates the animals by their race, or species, on site, because goats cannot be sheep and sheep can never be goats, regardless of what they do.
When we split Eli James tried to insist that this parable was about the individual behavior of sheep and goats, and twisted it to support universalism, but here we see that Comparet would not have agreed with that.
One other thing that Eli James did not realize, and that Comparet did not mention here, is why the goats were judged and condemned so harshly. Christ told the sheep, at Matthew 25:40, “Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” But then Christ told the goats, at Matthew 25:45: “Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.” So it is clear that the goats are judged not according to how they treated one another, but according to how they treated the sheep, and for that they are all condemned.
One other thing which Comparet had apparently never understood, is our assertion as to why the goats share the same fate as that of “the devil and his angels”, and that is because their origin was with “the devil and his angels”, for which reason in Genesis Yahweh had created only one race of man, the Adamic race, whereas we have all of these other races among us today, which the Revelation describes as the flood from the mouth of the serpent. But Comparet did well in other respects, so we continue:
You who have listened to these lessons for some time, know the Israel of the Bible, Yahweh’s chosen people exist today in the Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian, Germanic nations, not the Jews. We have proven this many times and need not repeat it here.
Of course, we understand that there are other historically White nations which have also descended in whole or in part from the Israelites of Scripture, beyond those which Comparet mentions here. However his description will suffice for our purposes this evening, so again we continue:
It should not surprise you to learn that Yahweh’s chosen people Israel, constitute the sheep nations, as the Bible says. For example Psalm 100:3, “We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.” Jeremiah 50:6 confirms this. “My people hath been lost sheep: and their shepherds have caused them to go astray.” Ezekiel chapter 34 promises, “Behold I, even I, will both search for My sheep and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered, so will I seek out My sheep and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. … And as for you, O My flock, thus saith Yahweh, behold, I judge between cattle and cattle, between the [sheep] rams and the he-goats.”
Evidently Clifton added the word sheep in brackets before the word rams. Of course, the rams are the males of the flock, so they are also sheep. Reading the Scriptures, from beginning to end it is absolutely clear that in the Word of God the references to sheep describe only the children of Israel, and no others. So Comparet continues:
Fulfilling these words, [the words of Ezekiel chapter 34] Yahshua said this was His mission. In Matthew 15:24 He said, “I am not sent but to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” He taught His disciples this was to be their purpose also. In Matthew 10:5-6 we read, “These twelve Yahshua sent forth and commanded them saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
While this verse sounds appropriate, I have before explained that prior to Peter’s vision, the apostles would have understood the words of Christ in that passage to be a reference to those of Israel of the circumcision only. Only later, as it is revealed in the epistles of Peter and James, and especially of Paul, did the apostles learn the history and scripture which led them to the “twelve tribes scattered abroad”. Many of the Samaritans and so-called “gentiles” in Palestine at the time had indeed descended from the twelve scattered tribes. Comparet continues to make his case on the difference between sheep and goats, and scores some very excellent points:
A sheep is a sheep by its genetic nature, it’s race, it can’t become a goat by straying away from the flock. The goats run with the flock, but that can’t make sheep out of them, you simply can’t make a sheep out of a goat, and Jesus never tried to!! As you already know, the Jews are not any part of Israel, and never were. Therefore, Jesus never tried to make converts of them.
While it is true that the Jews are not truly Judah, nor of any other tribe of Israel, this is somewhat of an over-simplification and therefore it is not entirely accurate. If it is not entirely accurate, some critic may use it to somehow prove that everything we say is wrong. Jews undermined Western Civilization through such criticism, by publishing voluminous tomes which criticized everything. So we must strive to represent the Bible and Biblical history as accurately as possible.
The Judahites of Jerusalem did forcibly convert the Edomites and other Canaanites to Judaism for the most part, and approximately, between the years 129 BC and 76 BC. But then they began to intermarry with the Edomites, so that some of them can claim to have been descended from Judah. Even the first Herod, who is identified as an Edomite by Josephus, had married into the family of high priests, the Hasmonaeans, by taking to wife Mariamne the daughter of Alexander II, who was high priest when Jerusalem was conquered by the Romans in 63 BC. Herod, in league with the Romans against his wife’s family, eventually eliminated all of them and became king himself. But here, our point is this: by the time of Herod there were no barriers to the intermarriage of Judahites and the supposedly converted Edomites, and it had evidently even become quite common. In that is the origin of the Jews, and in John chapter 8 they denied being children of fornication, while Christ insured them otherwise. So, after accurately professing that Christ had never tried to convert them, Comparet continues and says:
To the contrary, He always taught among them in public using parables which they could not understand, but Yahshua always explained the parables privately to His disciples who were Israelites. He stated His reason for this in Mark 4:11-12, “Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of Yahweh; but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: that seeing, they may see but not perceive; and hearing, they may hear but not understand: lest at any time they should be converted and their sins be forgiven them.” Accordingly, in John 10:26-28, “But ye believe not, because ye are not of My sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear My voice.”
The very fact that there are people “without”, or outside, that there were people who were purposely excluded from Christianity even before the gospel was to be taken to the people, proves Two-Seedline, that there were people whom Christ would never want to convert. Comparet continues:
Jesus warned all Christians not to try to give the blessings of His kingdom to people who couldn’t understand and appreciate it. In Matthew 7:6 He commanded, “Give not that which is holy unto dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet and turn and rend you”. But, we always have to try and show God how much better we are than He is, so we always violate His commandments.
And this is also absolutely true, as we observe it in the words and actions of Eli James, Ted Weiland, Charles Weisman, that even men who profess to know their Christian Identity will nevertheless make excuses for so-called “people” who are not a part of the Covenants and who have no part with Christ. I have heard ridiculous arguments such as “oh, the Canaanite woman was a dog, but that does not mean that all Canaanites were dogs”, or “… that does not mean the other races are also dogs.” Of course, I am paraphrasing, but where we have wheat and tares, or sheep and goats, or sons and bastards, there are always only two parties, one which is completely destroyed, and the other which is completely saved, and there is never a third, neutral category. Yet many of these Christian Identity so-called pastors, such as Eli James, are always trying to create a third category on their own.
But Christ had said, as it is in Matthew chapter 13, that “38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.” And even if we understand that word world to be society, as we also assert, then we must understand that wherever we have brought our society, that is become a part of our world. So Yahweh said in Jeremiah, on two occasions, in chapters 30 and 45, but here from chapter 45: “28 Fear thou not, O Jacob my servant, saith the LORD: for I am with thee; for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I have driven thee: but I will not make a full end of thee, but correct thee in measure; yet will I not leave thee wholly unpunished.” With this understanding we may be able to see how Comparet certainly does agree with our position on the issue of race, as he continues and says:
The pearls Yahweh has given us are freedom, wealth and power. We cast them before the jungle savages of the Congo and the murderous hordes of China. As He warned us, they trample our gifts in the mud of their evil desires, then turn upon us to destroy us. We give that which is holy, our Christian religion, which the savages can no more understand than they can astronomical mathematics, to those whom Jesus calls dogs and the natural, inevitable result is the many Christian missionaries in China, who are already murdered or slowly dying in prison. Many Christian missionaries are fleeing the Congo to escape being eaten.
This is actually recorded as having happened on far more than one occasion. Comparet passed in 1983, but I am certain he would have been entertained by an August, 2007 article in the British newspaper, The Telegraph, which was titled Cannibal tribe apologises for eating Methodists. One line of the article reads: “A tribe in Papua New Guinea has apologised for killing and eating four 19th century missionaries under the command of a doughty British clergyman.” Earlier, in November of 2003, another British newspaper, The Guardian, ran a similar article titled Fijians apologise for eaten missionary. It opens by saying “Fijian villagers wept yesterday as they apologised to descendants of a British missionary who was eaten by their ancestors more than 130 years ago.” A brief survey of Google results for the words “missionaries eaten cannibals” reveals that missionaries have been eaten by South Pacific islanders, Southeast Asians, Africans, Mexicans and South Americans. So the problem, and the inherent character which these tribes exhibit, is far-reaching among non-White races. If any of these tribes have “apologized” it is only under the compulsion of the more powerful Western civilization which has attempted to change that inherent character. But once they are left to their own devices, as we now observe in many Western cities, they quickly revert to their natural behavior. We cannot change goats into sheep. So Comparet again continues:
Do you think that we were supposed to convert all the world? Men have said that, but Yahweh said the exact opposite. In John 17:9 Yahshua said, “I pray not for the world, but for them which Thou hast given Me; for they are Thine. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.” In John 6:35 Yahshua said that He Himself is the bread of life. But in Matthew 15:22-28 when the Syrophoenician woman asked His help as Son of David, the head of Yahweh’s people Israel, He refused. He told her it was not right to take the children’s bread and cast it to dogs. Not until she recognized that she could not approach Him as one of His people and said, “Yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their master’s table”, did He then grant her request.
This situation is even more complex, as one must understand the customs of noblemen and suppliants at that time, and that Christ was following the custom of honoring the suppliant, which was quite ancient. We have discussed this several times, but mostly fully in an August, 2013 presentation titled The Canaanite Woman: The Biblical Perspective. Significantly, the fact that Christ healed the woman’s daughter does not mean that Canaanites or other races may be redeemed or saved, however if we did not have this episode then we would not have had an illustration of the important racial message which it contains. So certainly even this was within the Provenance of God, for which to further explain His purpose. Continuing with Comparet:
The blessings of peace, good government, education, sanitation and good health, prosperity, in short, civilization, these can be given to those who are of other races. It is not to be given to those who would seize it for themselves saying, “We are just as much sheep as you are. We make ourselves sheep by saying so.” No, they must recognize Yahweh’s own order of things. He gives His commandments and His instructions on how to obtain His blessings, to His people Israel. We are to obey His commandments and demonstrate to the world how obedience to Him has made us the have nations, compared to the pagan have not nations. If they will come to us for instruction in His laws, we who are His witnesses will instruct them and they can grow into civilizations as far and as fast as they will obey.
There is nothing in Scripture that informs us that the law was to be given to other races, or even that other races in their nations would be forced to obey the law. David himself, in the 147th Psalm, had rejoiced that the law was given only to Israel, and that Yahweh had not given it to other nations. So to an extent, Comparet believed in Dominion Theology, but at least he also knew that it was destined to fail, for reasons we shall explain later.
While we generally agreed with Comparet up to that last paragraph, here we must sharply disagree. While Comparet’s final conclusion is correct, that all the goat nations ultimately go into the Lake of Fire, the fact that other races have benefited from us has always been an aspect of our punishment. They always come to rule over us when we share our blessings with them, and this is also an aspect of the blessings of obedience and the curses of disobedience found in the books of the law, in both Leviticus and Deuteronomy. Comparet is using the discourse between Christ and the Canaanite woman to create a doctrine, but it is not a fit doctrine, as it conflicts with other Scriptures.
First, the children of Israel were punished for free trade with other nations, as we read in Hosea chapter 2: “5 For their mother hath played the harlot: she that conceived them hath done shamefully: for she said, I will go after my lovers, that give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine oil and my drink.” Yahweh had commanded the children of Israel to be a separate people, and that command still stands. But Yahweh knew that the opposite would happen, so in that same place, where it was prophesied that they would realize their error and return to God in Christ, we read: “7 And she shall follow after her lovers, but she shall not overtake them; and she shall seek them, but shall not find them: then shall she say, I will go and return to my first husband; for then was it better with me than now. 8 For she did not know that I gave her corn, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, which they prepared for Baal.” Trading with non-Adamic, non-Israelite nations, we benefit them, and therefore we benefit their gods. But rather than benefit ourselves, we debase ourselves with the vile practices we pick up from the aliens, and we were also warned of that in Scripture.
Then, where it is even speaking of other Adamic nations, the children of Israel were told in Isaiah chapter 60 that in their captivity: “9 Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the LORD thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee. 10 And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee. 11 Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought. 12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted. [The goats are judged because they did not care for the sheep.] 13 The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious. 14 The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee, The city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel. 15 Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations. 16 Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles [Nations], and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob. 17 For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: I will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors righteousness.” Then in Isaiah chapter 61: “6 But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles [Nations], and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.”
With this it should be evident, that the children of Israel scattered abroad should rightfully have been enslaving all other people, as the early Germanic tribes had done, and taking whatever belongs to them for their own. Then, those nations who would not serve them should have been killed. That is the commission in Isaiah, and once again we failed to live up to it, but ultimately it shall be completed in Christ. As he continues, however, Comparet does have the correct conclusion:
Russia and China have taken only our manufacturing technology, not our religion or our ideals. They have learned to make tanks, cannon, bombs and bayonets, but the brutal, tyrannical horror they have in their lands is not civilization by any standard. Goats cannot become sheep!
Comparet, a product of the Cold War, was a little hard on Russia. Originally, at least in the late Medieval period and into modern times, Russia was a great Christian nation comprised of mostly Germanic and Slavic tribes, which had become an empire ruling over people of many other races. Then Communism practically eradicated public expressions of Christianity in Russia, but that does not mean that all of the people ceased to be Christians. There certainly were White Christians in Russia as Comparet wrote, although they were a minority of all who came to be called “Russian”. Now continuing with Comparet:
Yahweh’s truth is eternal, it never changes with the times and fashions. His word is still true today, as He told the prophet in Amos 3:2, “You only have I known of all the families of the earth.” It is still true as Isaiah 63:17-19 says, “Oh Yahweh, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways and hardened our hearts from Thy fear: Return, for Thy servant’s sake, the tribes of Thy inheritance. The people of Thy holiness have possessed it but a little while. Our adversaries have trodden down Thy sanctuary. We are Thine: Thou never barest rule over them: they were not called by Thy name.”
Here Comparet is in conflict with himself, as he knew that Yahweh would never rule over the other races, yet earlier he expressed the concept that the other races would be blessed if they allowed the children of Israel to rule over them. Ultimately, his understanding does agree with our position, as he moves towards his conclusion:
Do you think this will ever change? No, for in the book of Revelation, Yahweh has given us a picture of the New Jerusalem, the eternal city of Yahweh, coming into existence to last forever. This is after the millennium and He says in Revelation 21:12 this city is surrounded by “a wall great and high and 12 gates, and names written thereon which are the names of the 12 tribes of the children of Israel.” There is only one way to enter into that city, it is to go in through a gate and the only gates are the 12 tribes of Israel. We are told in Revelation 22:14, “Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.”
Now Comparet correctly concludes:
Don’t apologize for being one of Yahweh’s sheep, a citizen of a sheep nation. Be proud of it, be worthy of it and walk, rejoicing in your destiny.
And of course, we do not have to apologize. All we have to do is realize that if our birth was from above, meaning that we were born of the Adamic race created by God, then our destiny is in His Kingdom, and we can never change that for ourselves. But if one is not of the Adamic race, he has no such future in the Kingdom of God, and nothing he does can ever change that.
Now Clifton has a few notes, which we saved for the end:
Critical note by Clifton A. Emahiser:
Comparet did a much better job with this presentation by putting the other races in their proper place, which is no place at all. When he said: “Goats cannot become sheep!”, he was right on target. Comparet rightly quoted Amos 3:2, “You only have I known of all the families of the earth.” Comparet could have reinforced this passage by quoting Daniel 2:44 which says: “And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.” The German tribes, who were the good-figs of Judah, fulfilled Daniel’s prophecy here. If the true Israelites are the only people “known” by Yahweh, and “the kingdom shall not be left to other people”, how can anyone attempt to include the other races in the Kingdom? How can a member of a goat race accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior? There is absolutely no way a goat can accept Jesus Christ as a kinsman redeemer for a goat is not a kinsman!
Although Comparet did well with this theme, he did an about-face when he said: “The blessings of peace, good government, education, sanitation, good health, prosperity, and civilization, can be given to those who are of other races”, and secondly, “If they will come to us for instruction in His laws, we who are His witnesses will instruct them and they can grow into civilizations as far and as fast as they will obey.” Question: If we do all this for the other races, is this not casting our pearls before swine? Has not history proven all of this to be a futile effort?!
As I have said, neither Clifton nor I have ever pretended to be pronouncing “new revelations”. We have only given further study to what was already there, to what has always been there, and properly, new revelation only comes from deeper study of the original source materials from a better perspective. That better perspective was originally attained by the archaeologists of the 18th and 19th centuries who had discovered the monuments and inscriptions which enabled Bible students in Europe to realize the truth of their Christian Identity. However they only patched that understanding over their old Judaized forms of denominational Christianity. Now, a hundred and seventy years later, and with the gift of their perspective, we have been able to study the Scriptures much deeper than our predecessors were able to do, and that better perspective has indeed given us a much greater understanding. But we were only able to do what things we have done upon the foundation of Covenant Theology, without all of the baggage of universalist church doctrines, so we have indeed arrived at conclusions which even Comparet did not have. However these are not innovations, they are all documented in Scripture, and in spite of the things he did not have, Comparet certainly did agree with our final conclusion. The goats cannot ever become sheep, the sheep all go into the Kingdom of God without exception, and the goats all go to “the fire prepared for the devil and his angels”, without exception.
We don’t want to mock our fellow sheep when they do not understand these things, but rather, we pray that they do eventually choose to investigate and understand them. As for the wolves in sheep’s clothing who have seen these things and refuse to accept them, who instead choose to contend with the Word of God, they deserve to be mocked. Rather, Identity Christians must understand that British-Israel, Howard Rand, and even Capt. Swift, Comparet and all the others were only stepping-stones on the path to a better understanding. But that better understanding can only come from studying the Scriptures from their original languages, because all prior translations were made from the perspective of Replacement Theology, and from continuing the work begun by Rand and Comparet, which is to put the Scriptures, translated as clearly as possible, into their proper historical context. That has been our sole endeavor these past twenty years, and while we may not be perfect, Yahweh willing we shall improve that path and repair or remove all the loose and broken stones for those who follow after.
