Bible Wisdom in Tribal Law – Reject it at our Peril

In traditional Aboriginal culture, there are laws about all of life and how to care for the land.

In the Kimberley we have 8 male and 8 female skin names:

Mother/Wife – Father/Husband
Nambiyin – Jangari
Nagada – Jawilyi
Nyajadi – Jagada
Nangari – Jambiyin
Nangala – Jungada
Nyawana – Juwudu
Naminjili – Jangala
Nyawudu – Janama

From this structure, we know who our parents are, we know whom to marry, we know who our uncles and aunties are, we know who our nieces and nephews are, we know who our grandparents are, we know who our brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law are, we know who our daughters and sons-in-law are.

This kinship system order determines all your behavioural relationships and how you relate to every person in this system — whether you are a child, a teenager or an older person. In the past, this system also set the moral boundaries for gender relationships, and it carried the punishment for those who break the moral code. In some indigenous tribes in outback Australia, it is still applicable today.

This kinship system was so designed that there would be no deformities resulting from incest or other bad actions in the tribe. In traditional Aboriginal culture there was (and there is) no place for same-sex relationships. It was strictly forbidden. If same-sex co-habitation did occur, you were taken out and exterminated, to prevent the spread of your bad influence in the tribe.

So, where did this system come from? … and where did Aborigines come from?
Did Aborigines just appear as proto-plasm floating on some Darwinian primeval waters in the dark dreamtime void some 60 or 70 thousand years ago?

By western standards, this traditional kinship system is complex and complicated to understand. So how did these so-called uncivilised, uneducated people inherit such a system? Who gave it to them?

In the eternal calendar of God’s Constitution (the Bible), the Father, Son and Holy Spirit stood together in unison in Their eternity, and God decreed in the book of Genesis:

“Let us make man in our image and likeness, and let them rule over creation.”
~ Genesis 1:26-27

Australian Aborigines were included in that decree. There is scientific evidence that they migrated to Australia from the plains of Shinar after the global flood about 6,000 years ago.

These stories have been passed on to us by careful records inspired by the Holy Spirit Himself, and painstakingly written down and transmitted to us over the centuries.

However, tribal stories around the globe have been passed on through the generations by oral transmission. By this process the stories can be (and have been) changed by adding or taking away details. However, the Holy Spirit Himself directed the writing of God’s Word, the Bible. The Holy Spirit Himself instructed the writers of the Bible to write God’s history (HIS story) into a book. It is not subject to change.

When God decreed that mankind should rule over the earth He created, God only gave us rulership, but not ownership of the land. We have rulership on a lease basis (Psalm 24:1-4; 115:16). The earth is still the property of Divine ownership — from England to Australia and all the countries in between. We are stewards of God’s land.
Will we be good stewards or bad stewards?

Now, in Australia we have fires, floods, mouse plagues, drought, Covid-19. All this is only the beginning of the ‘sorrows/labour pains’ that the Bible talks about (cf. Matthew). Volcanoes around the Pacific ‘Rim of Fire’ and other parts of the world are becoming active. These are signs that the earth is spewing out the evil in the land. God makes it very clear that the land vomits out the people when they disobey God’s standards (Leviticus 18:26-30). And Australia is sick — spiritually and morally bankrupt.

In Sydney, we have an annual Mardi Gras parade with some First Nations people leading the parade. This is not Aboriginal culture — it is demonic and is comes from the pit of hell.

It is a crying shame, isn’t it, that the previous Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, opened the floodgates of hell when he legalised same-sex marriage in Australia. The Premiers of Queensland and New South Wales, and the Prime Minister of New Zealand also endorsed this abomination of same-sex marriage. Abortion and euthanasia are also rife in this land. We also have extremist climate change activists on the rise in this land.

We are focussing on the wrong thing with global warming. The main focus is on the bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef, trees dying in the Snowy Mountains and other environmental issues, but it is not a matter of climate change.

It is a spiritual issue, where a curse is on the land, caused by the lack of righteousness in the land, and our self-centredness. Why the land is spewing up, is because of the defilement on the land itself — of abortion and bloodshed, same-sex marriage, broken marriage covenants, euthanasia, and idolatry and the protection of ‘sacred sites’. It is because of nature-based idolatry (Rom 1:18-32) and indigenous smoking ceremonies and necromancy, appeasing demonic spirits which appear to be people’s ancestors. These things put a curse on the land itself.

Their idols are silver and gold, the work of human hands.
They have mouths, but do not speak; eyes, but do not see.
They have ears, but do not hear; noses, but do not smell.
They have hands, but do not feel; feet, but do not walk;
and they do not make a sound in their throat.
Those who make them become like them;
so do all who trust in them.
~ Psalm 115:4-8

If Sodom and Gomorrah didn’t escape God’s judgement, how are we here in Australia going to escape God’s judgement? We are looking down the barrel of a righteous God! We are in line for His judgement. What a nation sows, it will also reap!

Don’t be misled — you cannot mock the justice of God.
You will always harvest what you plant.
Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature
will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature.
But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.
So let’s not get tired of doing what is good.
At just the right time, we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.
~ Galatians 6:7-9

The only way we can escape, is for the whole nation of Australia to repent — to stop what we are doing and return to God!
