The Identity Roots (and Betrayal) of Billy
By Pastor Thomas Robb
To many Christians throughout the world, Billy Graham is like
a modern Apostle Paul. The most famous evangelist of the modern era has spoken
before millions of people, has been the friend of every president since Truman
and has been the mouthpiece through which multitudes have pro-claimed a
conversion to Jesus Christ. There would be few Americans indeed, who can say
they have seen him speak on television, on the radio or even in person. He is
credited with bringing the light of the gospel to millions.
However, there Is A dark side!
Many people are unaware of the betrayal of Billy Graham. His
statements on more than one occasion helped prepare America for racial
miscegenation. His February 25th,1974 syndicated column (My Answer) which
appeared in the Newspapers all around the country made plain intent, (and
perhaps the reason the media made him into an evangelist icon). I have a copy of
the column which was obtained from The Atlantic Constitution. In this issue
he writes, "In Chattanooga, Tennessee back in 1953
we began insisting that our meetings be purposely mixed. I took this stand
before the Supreme Court decision of 1954 and before I had ever heard the word
In another issue of this column a white mother asked Graham
whether there was any thing in the Bible that would forbid her daughter to marry
a Negro. Graham answered emphatically "Certainly Not!"
However shortly before that he spent $40,000 for a prize
champion bull to use for breeding on his farm. You can be certain that before he
spent that $40,000 he made sure it was the best breeding stock he could find.
However he doesn't care what kind of mate our young girls and boys choose.
We all know that as Christians we are to oppose evil where
ever it appears. Christians are not to have any part of
wickedness and the bible is clear that we are to rebuke them.
Has Graham Been a Secret Soviet Agent?
To most Christians the very idea that Billy Graham may have
actually been a Secret Soviet Agent is unbelievable. Most people look only at
the loving Graham preaching
Jesus Christ. However, his work betrays his words.
To some patriots the name of Senator Joseph McCarthy conjures
images of a gallant, courageous champion of America. However, Graham's taking
the same liberal position as the enemies of McCarthy, such as Arthur Miller, the
Jewish playwright who married Marilyn Monroe, stated on his recently published
autobiography "Just As I Am", "about this time in Washington
D.C. Senator Joseph McCarthy was holding sensational hearings about alleged
anti-American subversion. McCarthyism entered the American vocabulary (coined by
Arthur Miller) as a word describing the making of unsubstantiated charges
against alleged Communists and communist sympathizers. I think McCarthy tried to
contact me once, but I never exchanged telegrams with him, and I never talked to
him on the phone. "Nor did I want to."
Graham admits that he didn't even want to talk to the great
American Joseph McCarthy. But he had no qualms talking and even enjoying the
company of well known Jewish mobster Mickey Cohen and Jewish Rabbis such as Marc
Tanenbaum. Nor did he have any problems meeting and befriending
such ultra liberals (Marxists) as Larry King, Al Gore, Hubert Humphrey and
Martin Luther King.
Graham Worked With King to Destroy White America!
Billy Graham without shame boasts of his close friendship
with Martin Luther King, Graham actually invited King to speak at one of his
Team Retreats. This was a gathering of young people who Graham was teaching to
be his ambassadors. According to Graham, King came "To
help us understand the racial situating in America." Graham says that
he called King, 'Mike" as King requested. Grahams intent was to break down
white resistance in the south. Graham helped accomplish the goal. "The
dinner was held in honor of (Mike) Martin Luther King, Jr. -Graham invited
Southern Baptists leaders from the Untied States to come. I
wanted to build a bridge between Blacks and Whites in our own South, and this
seemed like a good opportunity to move toward that goal."
"During our brief stay, some Mississippi Baptists
came up to Grady (Grady Wilson, a Graham associate) to welcome him. As they were
talking Mike came by and slapped Grady on the shoulder and greeted him warmly.
Our friendly relationship with Mike made the point with my Baptist
Graham in League with the Devil
Billy Grahams teaching of the Gospel was a cover to help
destroy White Christian America. The Bible warns us about ministers of Satan
coming as angles of light. In Grahams book he describes exactly how King and
himself worked together to bring to ruin White Christian America.
"Early on, Dr. King and I spoke about his method of
using nonviolent demonstrations to bring an end to racial segregation. He urged
me to keep on doing what I was doing-preaching the Gospel to integrated
audiences and supporting his goals by example- 'Not to join him in the
streets.'" Of course the reason King did not want Graham to join him in
the streets was because Grahams cover would be blown. It was necessary to
undermine within the church, to create the necessary white guilt that was so
Graham continues quoting from the words that King spoke to
him, "You stay in the stadiums, Billy," he said. "Because
you will have far more impact on white establishment there than you would, if
you marched in the streets. Besides that you have a constituency that will
listen to you, especially among the White people, who may not listen so much to
me. But if leaders get far out in front of the people they will lose sight of
him and not follow him any longer."
Playing the willing part of the Pied Piper, Graham said,
"I'll follow his advise."
Graham further displayed his treason in the May 28th,1973
edition of the Mainichi Daily News of Tokyo, Japan. In this newspaper Graham is
quoted as saying, "I think communisms appeal to youth and is its
structure and promise of the future utopia. Mao Tse Tung eight precepts are
basically the same as the Ten Commandments. In fact if we cannot have the Ten
Commandments to read in our schools, it'll settle for Mao's precepts."
If there was a time that Graham stood solidly upon principle
it was obvious the he sold out principle for profit. With his spiritual guard
down he became the tool of the extreme radicals of the National Council of
Churches. Perhaps this is why April 7th,1970s edition of the Chicago Tribune,
reported, "Graham said that for years he had
refused to discuss communism. "I cannot go around the world and say who
is right and who is not."
But What about his Identity Roots?
I suppose this is why the story of Billy Graham is a sad tale
of knowledge and ignorance, truth and betrayal. Those of is who know our
Identity with the House of Israel, who celebrate in the knowledge that the sons
and daughters of Europe are the descendants of Gods people Israel finds great
pleasure in bringing the Israel Christian Identity message to our White brothers
It is for that reason we remain bewildered by a man who
surely knows our Identity, but who not only will not proclaim this truth, but
who has actually become a willing tool in the hands of those who hate us.
I first hearted that Billy Graham was knowledgeable of our
Israel Identity from Dr.Kenneth Goff who told me in 1964 about a conversation he
had with Graham at a ministers conference a few years earlier. According to
Goff, Graham admitted that he privately knew it to be
true, but wasn't prepared to ever speak of it publicly.
For those who may not know, Goff was a well known
anti-communist speaker and minister, who before his conversion had been a member
of the Communist Party. Upon leaving the Party he
testified before Martin Dies. The committee which later became known as the
House Committee of un-American Activities. Goff crisscrossed the country in at
churches and private meetings about communist infiltration.
Of course, I am aware that the words of one man is not
sufficient proof of the claim. However, the story does unfold from there.
Goff claimed that Graham was converted to Christianity
through the ministry of Dr. M. Fowler Ham - (The M. standing for Mordecai) a
well known evangelist in the early part of this century who understood our
However it was again, only the words of Kenneth Goff that
made the claim. I had seen no proof of his statements.
Recently I picked up a book about The life story of Billy
I would like to quote a couple of paragraphs from the book to
help establish which Goff told me in 1964 was the truth. "Billy was not
enthusiastic when he heared some preacher called (Mordecai Ham) was coming to
Charlotte late that summer in 1935 to hold the revival meetings that his father
had talked about. One of the unique things about the evangelist M. Fowler Ham,
according to Grahams father he said that he could, 'Skin the
local preachers pretty good,'."
Billy Grahams father evidently had prior
knowledge of Evangelist Ham and respected his ministry and teaching. There was
little doubt that Dr. Hams teaching included our Israel Identity as you will
Why did Ham "skin" the local preachers? Could it
have been because he knew our Identity and he called them to task because local
preachers attempted to deny it? Remember this was in 1935!
"Dr. Ham was coming to Charlotte and was going to
"take on all the preachers in Charlotte."
It was under the preaching of Mordecai Ham that Billy Graham
was converted. In reference to Grahams future wife, Ruth Bell, we read, "She
seemed amazed that he had not seen one movie since he had received Christ under Morenci
Hams preaching in 1935."
Dr. Ham died in 1961 at the age of 84. During his day he was
considering one of the great evangelists and through his ministry an estimated
8,000 men entered the ministry.
It was during one of his revival meetings in Charlotte,Noth
Carolina that Billy Graham was converted to Christianity. This was in 1935.
However, Durham was also committed to the propagation of the
Israel Identity truth for many years prior to 1935.
If anyone should wonder if it was the same Mordecai Ham (as
if this would be a common name). Or that perhaps Dr. Ham kept his beliefs secret
and did not elaborate upon them. I would like to point out that Graham himself
admits that Hams teaching was well known enough that according to Grahams autobiography," Ham)
arrived in Charlotte under a considerable cloud of controversy. One charge
leveled against him was that he was Anti-Semitic."
In part two of this article, we are reprinting a sermon
Dr. Ham spoke in British at the Seventh Annual Congress of the British Israel
world Federation on Oct 4th,1926.This was 9 years before Grahams
conversion under Dr. Hams ministry! The sermon was later reprinted in the
Aug.7th,1954 issue of The National Message.
I obtained this copy from Pastor Curtis Clair Ewing in
1982,who said that he wished the title would have been Anglo-Israel rather than
the term British-Israel. But regardless of the name, the fact still remains that
Dr. Ham knew our Israel Identity. He preached it and there is little doubt that
Billy Graham understood it and chose to betray the truth for the pleasures of
We often hear about preachers warning people that salvation
is greater than riches. Hollywood and the entertainment industry in general have
sometimes made stories about a person selling their soul to the devil in order
to become a great Rock&Roll singer, movie star, or perhaps achieve great
success in some other career.
Is it possible that to Billy Graham it was better for the
WORLD to call him a great preacher and a great evangelist than to be the humble
servant of God?
Did he sell his soul to Satan for the fame and success of
being a great preacher?
The Need of British Israel Truth
An address given at the Seventh Annual Congress of the
British Israel World Federation on Oct. 4th,1926,by Rev. Dr. M. Fowler Ham the
celebrated American Evangelist under whose ministry Dr. Billy Graham made his
decision for Christ.
Dr. Ham's message below that he gave on Oct. 4th 1926 to
the British Israel World Federation:
"I AM going to give you some of
the reasons why I believe that the world is in need of this message.
Carrying out a Divine Purpose -
I am going to quote from the first
chapter of Deuteronomy, verses 6 to8: "The lord our God spake unto us in
Horeb, saying "Ye have dwelt long enough in this mount: turn you and take
your journey and go to the mount of the Amorites, and unto all the places high
there unto, in the plain, in the hills and in the vale, and in the South, and by
the sea side, to the land of the Canaanites, and unto Lebanon, unto the great
river, the river of Euphrates. Behold I have set the land before you: go in the
possess the land which the Lord swore unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and
Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them.'
These words were spoken to people who
had just been emancipated from slavery, who had never known anything but the
brick kilns of Egypt. And the rigors of bondage; who at this time sat under the
shades of Horeb, enjoying not only the shade, but the sweet, cool water that
flowed in from the mountain; and who were fed with manna from the hand of God.
Free from all terror, they sat there enjoying their freedom. Then God said,' Ye
have dwelt long enough in this mount'. God did not save Israel out of Egypt just
to make pets of them and to lavish His love upon them, to the exclusion of the
rest of the world. Of course, He had a divine purpose and that purpose down
through the ages, He has been carrying out. And based upon that, we might study
four things that God had viewed:
He saved the people, He emancipated
them, first of all, to reveal to them the great truth: 'Hear,O Israel; The Lord
our God is one Lord,' He wanted to give to the world a knowledge of the one and
only true God.
The next thing He wanted to show to the
world was the beauty of the Divine government, 'Happy is the people, whose God
Then He wanted, through them, as the
custodians of His Divine oracles, to carry the truth to all the world.
And last of all, to give to the world
the promised Savior, the King of kings, and the Lord of lords.
The World Needs This Truth
Now with this I wish to say, first of
all ,that the world needs the Truth that you are now putting out, in order that
it might have restored to it confidence in governments. The foundations of
governments are trembling everywhere. People, because of subtle propaganda have
lost faith in the powers that be, and especially in America we are suffering at
this time from the loss of confidence in rulers, in established governments.
Everywhere we hear that governments must all be destroyed, and that we must
bring in a new order that way everything existing now is wrong.
Suppose for instance, that all people
become obsessed with the idea, that all established Authority and all
Governments are wrong. Then the result would be that there would be no appeal to
patriotism, there would be no enlisting in the hour of trouble, as you had in
your last great war. There
would be nothing but a chaotic state of society, and such distress and misery as
we have never had on this earth before, would be the result.
The moment that everyone was convicted
that the present government are all of Satan, and of his power of domination, and
that they are under his power, the only result would be chaos and war and
sorrow. We need somehow to restore the confidence of the people of this world in
the fact that government is of God. And as I understand it, I do not see
anything that can better serve in this than respect towards the British Israel
gospel, and the Truth that you are presenting.
Then the world needs this truth to
enlighten the intelligencer. What do I mean by the intelligencer? It is that
agitated man without intelligence. We are told that we have come from a lower
order of animal life, and the
child of today is traced back through some inferior creature down into the cave
or to the scum of a drake pond, or somewhere else; and the consciousness of God
id being wiped out. Recently a poll was taken of our college boys and girls in
the states and it was found only one
out of ten had not forgotten to go to church when they returned home. The
creation of everything is accounted for without God. They will give the theory
of evolution, or something of that kind. We need something that is definite.
Divine Plan Behind History
Our histories have assumed that which
is not true; they have begun with a falsehood. And it certainly would appeal to
any mans intelligence if he could discover that back of all history is the
divine programmed and plan. You can trace back practically everything. If men
were but enlightened they would find that God, the great Builder, had a
well-defined programme when He started colonizing in this world. Just as there
is the architect, then someone
to excavate, another to put the foundation, and another to build up the
structure, so in Gods great plan. When God laid His hand
upon Abraham, and called him out of the land. He had His divine program, and
once you see it, history is interpreted for you, and the
great mysteries which our scholars today are trying to account for by
speculation and uncertainties will become well defined,
intelligent programs behind which we can read the words,' In the beginning God'.
Read and see how God planned that sons of Isaac should each give to the world
Needed Unity of our Christian Nations
Then again, the world needs the British
Israel Truth in order that so it may ensure the amity and the unity of the great
Angelo-Saxon or Christian nations. I was impressed with this fact when, a few
weeks ago I visited the territory where the men who first came to this country
came with the idea that, under God hey were doing something. And, as Benjamin
Franklin said, when they had wrangled for several days, trying to formulate a
constitution without coming to any agreement, 'It seems strange that such
intelligent men as you should ever have undertaken such a tremendous task
without calling upon the Supreme Being. 'So they knelt and prayed, and
immediately order and harmony were restored. They like you, felt it was under
God they were working.
And everywhere you go in Angelo-Saxondon
today, you can see the order, the programme, the laws ,the institutions; from
the circuit judge, on through our entire government institutions, you can see
that they are based upon the great foundation that God Himself laid down. For
what we have with us today, we are bound to give credit to God and His book.
Britain and America Inseparable
But there is mischief abroad today.
There is an effort being made to destroy the amity and the unity between Britain
and America. Let me say this to you: Britain and America have never been separated. It
is the work of the enemy that is seeking to bring embarrassing conditions
between the two countries. And I know of no truth today that can restore
confidence as this British Israel Truth. Because in my country, in the Southern
land of America, you find the old Angelo-Saxon Puritan blood in the ascendancy. We
still believe this book, in spite of all the attacks that are being made upon
This Truth Stimulates Missionary Zeal
We also need this Truth to stimulate
missionary zeal. Study Gods Word and note the order. First possession: then
practice. God never gives an exhortation, and never outlines for us a practice, or
gives us a task to do, until He told us what we are, and who we are. Read that Ephesians
Epistle: 'In Him' appears thirty times perhaps in the first chapter. Then He
comes down and tells us who we are, and where we are, and then He tells us how
we are. When we are made to feel that we have been appointed of God to carry to
the world His Truth, it brings with it a feeling of tremendous
responsibility and also such a since of power that we cannot resist.
How we have in a measure fulfilled our
tasks and can be seen when we know that out of 23,000,missionaries that have
gone out into this world. Over 19,000 of them have gone from Britain and
America. The execution of that noble work in obedience to Christ's commission
has had a wholesome effect upon us. I could better illustrate it than I could
establish its truth by argument:
'Few years ago, on the shores of Lake
Michigan, a steamer was sighted battling with the storms. It was foundering, and
it seemed that death was almost certain. Efforts had been made by the little
life-saving crew, but they had been a failure. After a while there came down to
the shore a little woman, and walking up to her big son ,she said, 'Remember,
when you accept this position, I told you of it's responsibility. Have you done
your level best? Go, and mother will pray for you'. And, again the persuasion
and the advice of his fellows he leapt into the boat and battled with the storm.
After a while they saw his boat coming back, and when he got near enough to the
shore he began to shout,' I have saved my brother.'
To the storm-distressed nations we have
brought salvation and have brought a blessing to our own people.
This Truth Restores Faith in the Bible
Last of all, the world needs this Truth
and we need it to give us back our Bible. For years I have seen the Book going
from us, and taken gradually from us by people who profess to believe it. In
that subtle way they have interpreted this passage and that, until finally we
have concluded that the Book, after all, is only a bit of Ancient literature.
How different it is when once we see that, from the first, not one single
promise that God made to our fathers has failed and not one single prophecy.
God knows the future, and this is in
Gods Book, and we need this book given back to us, and this Truth which rejects
none of it, can show the fulfillment of each promise and each prophecy. And let
me say without any fear of being miss-understood that busy in the work as I have
been. I have read my Bible more since this Truth got hold of me than I ever did
in the same length of time before.
British Israel Stands the Great Test of
Are these men who cast doubt on the
Bible men of experience, of learning or are they ignorant men? Let me say this:
there is one test by which to try them,1 John 4:3:
'And every spirit that confesseth not
that Jesus Christ is coming in the flesh is not of God: and this is the spirit
of the Anti-Christ, whereof ye have heared that it should come; and even now
already is it in the world.'
'And again in the Second Epistle:
'For many deceivers are entered into
the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is coming in the flesh. This is a
deceiver and an Anti-Christ.'(v.7)
Everyone that does not admit that
Christ has come in the flesh is of the Anti-Christ. That is a double test. When
people would have me believe that anything is from the Ant-Christ. I put that
test, and it settles the question for me. Now I hold in my hand the Bible
containing some of the most ancient and the most modern of all utterances that
men have ever come in possession of written by different men, under different
civilizations at different times and in different environments from the king's
palace to the shepherd's tent. There are no contradictions; each is
complementary to the other. I made this statement once, and have made it again
and again in the university chapels of our land:
'I challenge you to show one single
historical mistake, one single scientific blunder in this great Book-a
magnificent temple of Truth, containing the utterance of the noblest characters
that this old world has ever heared of.'
And as President Wilson said when our
boys left for the Front: 'Boys read the Bible; the worlds greatest heroes and
characters are there. Get acquainted with them.'
'Isaiah who talks of Israel in the
I pass through the Judges and in the
Psalms, I step down awhile, and hear King David playing with his harp, and
listened to the sacred music, and the precious words that express the deepest
secrets of my soul. I not only listen to the loftiest music and the rarest
poetry, but I pass on to listen to the wisdom of Solomon; and then I pass on to
hearken to the glorious strains of Isaiah, who talks of Israel in the isles;
then to the minor tones of Jeremiah.
'Hail the Power of Jesus' name'
I not only listen to this grand
orchestra, but I pass on and sit down in the observatory there with Daniel. I
see the rise and fall of Kings and empires and kingdoms. Then through each of
the minor prophets who, with their telescopes, search the heavens for the star
of Bethlehem. I travel on through the New Testament, carried, as it were , into
the heavenlies, until in the end I see the King of kings, and the Lord of lords;
whether it be what Ezekiel saw, or that which is pictured in the four Gospels.
He is ever the same. And in the final Book of Revelation, I see the capstone.
There we see the redeemed hosts, singing. 'All hail the power of Jesus'
Name'. And someday you and I great flock of King Jesus, will match into
our full inheritance.
And back to Billy Graham
'I am a Christian Because of my
Heritage', Say's Graham
'Scotland is a little country', said Mr. Billy
Graham, at a Press conference, upon his arrival in Glasgow,' but it is an
important country far beyond the statistics of its population because there are
Scots all over the world. The United States owes a great spiritual debt to
Scotland. My part of the country (North Carolina) is inhabited almost
altogether by Scots, and we are called the ''Bible belt''. Our Scots forefathers
brought their faith with them, and I am a Christian because of my heritage. So
we do owe you as a nation and as Christians a great debt of gratitude, and if we
can do the slightest thing to repay you we will count it great privilege' (The
Glasgow Herald. 21.3.55)
It is quite evident that Billy Graham is aware of his Israel Identity
heritage and yet for fame and fortune and the love of the world chose to ignore
it, to work against it, and is the worse kind of traitor; one who knows the
truth but actively rebels against it and God. How many aspiring ministers
has he warped, how many mixed marriages is he responsible for, how many violent
crimes resulting from an integrated society is he behind. Billy Graham
flaunts his fame and fortune before God Almighty - pretending to be a mighty
preacher yet a stooge of Satan he remains.
