God Owns The Land

“God is cast in the roles of Creator and ‘supreme landlord’ in the Pentateuch. The land owes its existence to Him, and he creates its inhabitants, continually monitoring and supervising their behavior. He allocates land to people: *Adam is placed in *Eden (Gen. 2:8), Canaan is promised to the *Israelites (Gen. 15:16-21) and there are references to the allocation of land to the Edomites (Dt. 2:5), Moabites (Dt. 2:9), and Ammonites (Dt. 2:19). Conversely, He removes people from land when they do not behave in a worthy manner: he expels Adam and *Eve from Eden (Gn. 3:23-24), scatters the tower builders over all the earth (Gn. 11:8), and earmarks the Canaanites for expulsion from their land when the level of sinfulness warrants it (Gn. 15:16).”

As God does not change this has prompted me to consider;

1.) The fact that each of us lives where we live is not by chance or happenstance. We are where we are physically located by God’s ordained decree. We can find comfort in this truth when we end up in zip codes that we loathe. I remember when we first moved to Charlotte I kept waiting for God to send us an unexpected check in the mail so we could move from what I thought then was a God-forsaken location. I should’ve taken more comfort that God wanted me in Charlotte for reasons that were His own even if inscrutable to me. Saint, you are where you are because God has placed you there.

2.) Of course, there is a macro application here as well. People groups inhabit where they inhabit because of God’s ordination. Further, people groups are removed from their homelands and places often (not always) due to disobedience. Traditional WASP Christians are being removed from their homelands and who could argue that it is not because they have rebelled against God’s Law-Word and sown the wind with their gross covenant violating immorality.

Our removal is internal. By that, I mean God is removing us though we remain in our homeland. God is removing us via the recruit and dilute methodology combined with sub-replacement birth rates.  Western man has sown the wind and now is reaping the whirlwind. We are being slowly genocided and genociding ourselves and so are being removed from the land.  Scripture underscores this phenomenon when God warned Israel that the results of disobedience would be,

43 “The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower. 44 He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail.

3.) Overall this reminds us again of that stout Reformed doctrine of God’s exhaustive sovereignty. Our whole lives are structured and ordained by the Omnipotent God. Every breath we take, the very ground we inhabit, the tightness of our family units, the careers and jobs we have; all this is from the hand of a sovereign God. To God’s people, all of it is to our good. To those people who oppose God all of it is for their judgment.

In conclusion, the only way that Western man finds an end to God’s judgment of removal from our lands is to repent of our sin of rebelling against God and His Christ. We have need to repent of rebelling against God’s clear Law-Word. Only National repentance as led by repentance among God’s people will end the sure genocide and so replacement of Western man.
