OF TRUE ISRAEL
Part 8 of 9
by Lt. Col. Gordon "Jack" Mohr, USA Ret.
(Honorary Brig. Gen. C.E.D.S.)
"The Lord hath poured out upon you (Israel) the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets (preachers) and your rulers (politicians), the seers hath He covered . Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honor me, but have removed their heart far from me. . . Therefore, behold, I will do a marvelous work and a wonder among them: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent (those who take part in the political process) will be hid." - Isaiah 29:10, 13
THE DESCENDANTS OF JUDAH
Before going to Egypt, the TRIBE of Judah was split in two by the birth of twin sons, see Gen. 38:27-30.
In Egypt, Joseph married the daughter of Poti-Pherah, the priest of On (see Gen. 46:20.) Do not be deceived into believing she was an alien, as it was very possible that her father was an Israelite. The reason I say this is that the two sons which were produced by this marriage - Manasseh and Ephraim, were completely accepted by their grandfather, Jacob-Israel, who adopted them. It is highly improbable that Jacob would have given these two boys his blessing if they were sons of an alien. Later, these boys became the heads of two tribes, displacing Joseph (Gen. 48:5.) This made a total of thirteen tribes. Later, Levi was elevated to the position of Civil Service and was not numbered with the rest of Israel, so that once again there were twelve tribes (see Numbers 1 and 26.)
There is extra-Biblical (outside the Bible) evidence, that some of the descendants of Judah left Egypt when the persecution of Exodus 1:8-13 began. At this time, Israel probably numbered about 2-million people. Exodus 1:7 says that they had "increased abundantly and multiplied until the land was filled with them." This of course, was one of the reasons the Pharaoh was afraid of them. (See Ex. 1:8-12.)
It is important for us to understand that in the view of the majority of preachers who teach that "the Jews are ALL of Israel," they refer to the modern JEW as of JUDAH. We also should remember that for 3400 years of history which are recorded in the Bible, there were no people called JEWS anywhere in the world and that today's JEWS are not JUDAHITES.
Judah had five sons, three by a Canaanite woman named Shuah: they were Er, Onan and Shelah (Gen. 38:2-5). The rest of this chapter describes the death of Er and Onan. Shelah later had a son named Er.
Judah's two other sons were born to Tamar, his daughter-in-law, and were twins named Zarah and Pharez. This split the tribe (see Gen. 38:11-30.) The name "Pharez" in Hebrew means "breach or split." An intense rivalry sprang up between these two branches over the Royal Birthright blessings. Zarah had two sons named Calcol and Darder, (see 1 Chron. 2:6.)
From the Pharez branch of the family, there came the line of Jesse, the Father of David and grandfather of Solomon. This was the only branch of the JUDAH family which formed a tribe and remained in Palestine. The other descendants left Egypt and moved to various parts of the world, where they are identified by secular history.
Of the three, son of Judah, Shelah was the, first-born and according to Hebrew custom was entitled to the "birthright" blessings. But he was rejected, in part because of his mother havin g been a Canaanite, which would have contaminated the blood line of the Messiah (see Gen. 24:3, 37; Deut. 7:1-6; 20:16-18.) However, Shelah and his descendants were of JUDAHITE stock. Shelah bore a deep resentment towards his father Judah, because Judah had not kept his word by giving Tamar (a pure blooded Hebrew girl) to him for his wife. This gave Tamar the excuse to "play the prostitute," as told in Gen. 28. From that time on, there was an unfriendly relationship between the Shelah group and other JUDAHITES.
The majority of the descendants of Shelah and Er left Egypt when the persecution began about 1706 BC and retraced their journey across the Sinai Peninsula to the lands of the Canaanites and Phonecians. Here they inter-married and strengthened the Canaanite strain, which had first entered Hebrew stock through Shuah's daughter. In these foreign lands, they picked up the habits, languages and religions of the Canaanites and Phonecians. The theory has been advanced by some scholars, that from the word "Phonecian", came the word "Fenian," which was later changed to "Sinn-Fein," and was related to Ireland.
Later, somewhere around 1500 B.C. many of the descendants of Shelah-Judah left Palestine on Phonecian ships, migrating to what we today know as Ireland. They traveled through the Mediterranean Sea, through the Straits of Gibraltar (then known as the "Pillars of Hercules") into the Atlantic Ocean and then north along the western sea coast of Europe to the British Isles.
These people called their home "ERIN" or "ER's LAND" after their forefather "ER". Ireland was also known as IRENE or HIBERNIA, the latter word coming from the Hebrew word HEBER or EBER, who was the forefather of all the Hebrews. Thus the word IRELAND, actually means LAND OF THE HEBREWS.
The islands to the north were named HEBERIDES the ISLANDS OF THE HEBREWS. The ancient Irish language was BRSE from ER and was a combination of Hebrew and Phonecian. South Ireland today is called "EIRE."
In 1 Chron. 4:21-23, we find that the descendants of Shelah and ER were skilled workers in fine linen, pottery, plants and hedges. This is a pretty accurate description of modern Ireland which is known world-wide for Irish linen, Behlleh China, and a love for gardening.
The Canaanite infusion of blood may be one of the underlying reasons for the apparent "inborn" and often unexplainable and un-reasonable animosity between Ireland and Britain.
In Numbers 33:55, the Israelites were warned that the Canaanites were to be "pricks in the eyes, and thorns in the flesh of Israel." So while the descendants of Shelah-Judah are alive and well in Ireland today - and while they are of the stock of
JUDAH - THEY MOST CERTAINLY ARE NOT JEWS!
It might be worthwhile if we digress a bit here and go into a further study of this branch of the Judah family. The following remarks, except for those so noted, come from the scholarly book THE PHONECIAN ORIGIN OF BRITONS, SCOTS AND ANGLO-SAXONS, written in 1924 by the eminent author L. A. Waddell, Fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute of the University of London.
"The most suitable starting point to begin unravelling the tangled skein of history of the lost threads of origin of the Britons, Scots, and Anglo-Saxons, are the fresh clues gained on the grounds of deciphered Phonecian inscriptions found in Britain. (It might be of interest to know that Phonecian inscriptions, from before the time of Christ, have been discovered in various places in the New World - AUTHOR.)
"The chief of these inscriptions, and the first reported in Britain, is covered in a hoary old stone of about 400 B.C. dedicated to Bel, the Phonecian sun god. It was carved by a votary (worshiper) who identified himself by the three titles of Phonecia; Britain, and Scot. This stone preserves the name and titles of a prehistoric, literate Phonecian king who ruled in North Britain.
"This Brit-Phonecian inscription in Britain, records the unequivical (without doubt) Aryan character of the Phonecians.
"These "Khatti" or "CATTI", as they have been called, were pictured as living in this area 2,000 to 3,000 BC. They were tall in stature, wearing snow boots and looking much like the Goths of later times.
"The ruins of their towns and cities can be found scattered throughout the length and breadth of Asia Minor and into Central Europe. These ancient people of Asia Minor were the ruling class known as Hittites. They are referred to in the Old Testament. (See Gen. 5:20; Ex. 3:8; Num. 13:29; Deut. 20:17; Joshua 1:4, etc.)
Mr. Waddell then continues, after a long scientific discussion on archeological proofs, to say that an examination of Phonecian tombs proves that the Phonecians landed in Ireland. He says:
"They were a long-headed race like the Aryans, and totally different racially from the Jews.
"A mass of new historical facts, establishes that King Brut-the-Trojan, arrived in Britain by sea about 1103 BC. The arbitrary rejection of traditional ancient British Chronicles as a source of pre-Roman British history, by modern scholars, is based upon the kind of objection and dogmatic assertion which if applied to the Old Testament, or early Greek and Roman history, would entail their total rejection." (UNQ.)
This is the kind of religious dogmatism which we find in Olinger's statement: "The only support for the legend (that the prophet Jeremiah lived out his life in Britain) are the unreliable CHRONICLES OF IRELAND." (UNQ.) Using this kind of reasoning, there is little doubt, that if Olinger had lived in a much earlier day, he would have been among those who voted the death penalty for those "fools" who said the world was round. They were heretics, you know!
PHAREZ-JUDAH AND ZARAH-JUDAH
The story of the birth of these twins, should be studied carefully by every student of Israel Identity. It can be found in
Genesis 38 and describes the second split in the solidarity of the descendants of Judah.
The Hebrew mid-wife, who was waiting for the birth of the twins, was prepared to mark the first-born, since it would be he who would normally received the "birthright blessings." (Read Gen. 38:27-30.)
The descendants of Zarah knew they were the "Scarlet Thread Line" (the cord by which the midwife marked the firstborn,) and naturally felt they were entitled to the "birthright blessing," and the privilege of carrying on the family blood-line of the Messiah. But the descendants of Pharez knew their father had been born first. This brought about a breach in the Judah tribe.
In Gen. 49:10, we read where God stated: "The sceptre shall not depart from Judah . . . until Shiloh come." Pharez-Judah thought they should be the rulers; Zarah-Judah were sure they were the ones. But God had His own way of working this mess out.
At about the time when Shelah's descendants were arriving in ancient Ireland, we find that Chacol of the Zarah-Judah line had founded the ancient Irish line of kings, which had been planted in Ulster, hundreds of years before the time of Christ.
Many of DARDA branch of the Zarah-Judahites, left Egypt to settle the DARDA-NELLES and the HEBRUS RIVER in ancient Thrace. This latter branch of Judah, founded the ancient city of Troy, which was destroyed by the DANOI of Greece about 1100 BC. These DANAI were from the Tribe of Dan, which had split into at least three sections, with about a third of them settling in Greece. They were "blood brothers" of those they fought and destroyed in Troy.
Following the destruction of Troy, the Trojan King Brut or "BRIT," migrated with many of his people to an island to the northwest which was named BRIT-AIN, meaning "Covenant man," or "men of the Covenant." In St. Peter's church in Cornhil, London, is a stone monument which commemorates the arrival of the Trojans about 1075 BC. Traces of these same people have been found in Scotland.
While the main body of DARDA-ZARAH-JUDAHITES went to Britain; some of them settled in what is now known as Spain, where they named their land "EBERIA", or "IBERIAM" after their father "EBER." This Hebrew word means "chosen" or "elect." It is also part of what we now call the Iberian Peninsula. They built the city of ZARA-GOSSA, naming it after their forefather "ZARA," on the Elbo River. This city still exists to-day.
It is interesting to note how the Identity critics seek to discount these Israel names which can be found all over Europe. Olinger scornfully says: "They (Identity) point to many European names (Danube, Danmark, London, etc.,) which seem to bear the names of Dan. It should be noted, however, that a "d" or "n" in a name do not necessarily prove that the Tribe of Dan settled this area." (UNQ.) He then uses as an example, the Vietnamese cities of Danang, Dieu Bien Phu and Nam Dinh, "which no one believes were settled by Danites," he concludes:
"Each of the supposed Danite names has a source which in no way is connected with the tribe of Dan. The Danube for instance, gets its name from the Celtic word for River. (Of course, he refuses to accept the Hebrew background' of the Celts -AUTHOR.) "it is a mistake to assume the geography of Europe gives evidence of the lost ten tribes." (UNQ.) You will notice he gives no suggestion as to why these names are found in only certain areas of the world, and these areas are where we say the Children of Israel traveled in their trek to the APPOINTED PLACE.
It is also interesting to note that so-called Bible scholars like Olinger, will accept historical records from Egypt, Assyria and Babylonia, which are thousands of years older than those from Great Britain and Ireland, but refuse to accept the historical records of their own people and call them fairy stories. How sad that so many of our Israel people are inflicted with this same strange malady.
Although many of the descendants of Judah settled in the British Isles, even the unbelieving Bible scholars do not make the mistake of calling them JEWS.
There seems to be a connection in the story of the "Scarlet Thread" of Zarah, and the fact that it is accepted in many customs of the British, even at governmental levels. The Red Thread is woven into every inch of the ropes which are used by the British navy, with the exception of one naval yard where the color is blue. All British official documents are tied with a "red ribbon." All British possessions on their maps are marked in "red." It is also the official color of the Royal Guard, and of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Could this possibly have some historical significance?
TWELVE TRIBED ISRAEL
The following information is taken almost "verbatim" from MAN THINKING, by Mervyn T. Judge, of Sydney, Australia, the man from who we have received the inspiration for this book. It can be authenticated in many places and a little honest Bible study will reveal its truth.
Following the Exodus from Egypt under Moses and the forty years of testing in the wilderness of Sinai; during which all the people over the age of forty died, with the exception of Joshua and Caleb (see Numbers 14:22-34.) the tribes composed of a new generation settled down in a long military campaign to conquer the Promised Land and form the United Kingdom of ISRAEL AND JUDAH under King David. (2 Sam. 5:5-12.)
Immediately following the Exodus, the population of Israel was given in the first chapter of Numbers. The males of 20 years and upward, all who were able to go to war, were 603,550, plus 22,000 Levites. Therefore counting women and children, we can logically believe there were at least 3-million Israelites in this area.
The population at the end of 40 years of wandering in the desert had dropped a bit, for the new generation according to Numbers 26, was 601,730, plus 23,000 Levites. (There is no indication that this number was men only.)
This census took place about 1451 BC, but by the time of King David, some 400 years later, the total military force of Israel was listed as 1,100,000, while those of Judah were 500,000. If we were to multiply that by five, the size of the average family, we would have an Israelite population of close to eight million, not including the tribe of Benjamin and the Levites. It would be reasonable to say that there were close to 9-million Israelites alive at this time, in the land of Palestine. (KEEP IN MIND THAT THESE WERE NOT JEWS, SINCE THE NAME WAS NOT EVEN KNOWN UNTIL SEVERAL HUNDREDS OF YEARS LATER ABOUT 742 BC.) This does not take into account the large number of Israelites who had fled from Egypt and who lived on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, in Asia Minor, and in the British Isles. Most Bible scholars never take this into account, although they know that all the peoples of the world, have at some time or other, moved outside the boundaries of their homeland.
A close study of your Bible and of secular history will reveal two Israel trees growing. One was in Palestine and the other in Europe and the British Isles. At this time, which was about 1,000 BC, we find this breakdown:1 - IN PALESTINE - Jacob's family of Simeon, Napthali, Issachar, Asshur, Zebulon, Dan, Ephraim, Manasseh, Gad, Reuben, Judah, and Benjamin. There were also some Ishmaelite Arabs who were of Abraham's blood, but who were not Israelites.Both of these trees were rooted in Shem; each had a priestly order of Levites working among them; each had a king from the tribe of Judah reigning over them. About 975 B.C. Rehoboam, the son of Solomon became king on the death of his father and the nation was immediately split over the issue of the exorbitant taxation Solomon had imposed to build the temple and his ps bee in Jerusalem. God used this trouble to split the nation of Israel. When Rehoboam assembled an army of 180,000 men to fight against Northern Israel, a prophet warned JUDAH: "Ye shall not go up, nor fight against your brethren, the children of Israel; return every man to his house: FOR THIS THING IS FROM ME." (Emphasis mine. 1 Kings 12:21-24.)
2 - IN THE BRITISH ISLES - we find the descendants of Shelah, the Danaans and Trojans who settled in Hibernia and Britain about 1075 BC.
At this time, the two kingdoms became known as the House of Israel and the House of Judah.
Owing to the gross disobedience and awful idolatry on the part of both kingdoms, the punishment clauses of Leviticus 26 became operative and both Israel and Judah were sent into punishment and correction for a period of 2520 years. Both kingdoms became completely broken and the people were deported into Assyria and Babylonia.
It was at this time, that the transplanting of the "Tender Twig" of the Royal House of David, took place between Palestine and Ireland, via Egypt. Ezekiel 17:22, 23, says: "Thus saith the Lord God, I will also take of the highest branch of the high cedar, and will set it; I will crop off from the top of his young twigs a tender one, and will plant it upon an high mountain and eminent. In the mountain of the height of Israel will I plant it." (It might be interesting to note here, that the word "mountain" as used in the Old Testament, often refers to "nation.")
Following the Assyrian invasion, the Israel olive tree was broken. The ten tribes in the North had been deported to Assyria, and all that remained were the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, with some of the Levites, with King Zedekiah of the House of David, ruling over them from Jerusalem.
Then in 2 Kings 18:13, we have the account of how Sennacherib of Assyria invaded the southern kingdom, capturing and deporting most of the Judah people to Assyria. At this time, they captured 46 fortified cities and deported 200,150 of the men of Judah. Thus we find that the main body of the Israelites went into Assryian captivity, leaving only a relatively small number of the House of David in Jerusalem. By 713 BC only a small remnant of the once powerful nation of Israel remained in Palestine.
About 100 years, later, Nebuchadnezzer, came to Palestine and found the remnants of the two tribes, the YEHUDIM. He captured Jerusalem after a long siege in 604 BC and made it part of the Babylonian Empire. He deported all the important people to Babylon, leaving only the very poorest rest behind. :The Israel olive tree had: almost ceased to exist in Palestine at this point.
Following the destruction and burning of the temple in 585 BC and the complete destruction of Jerusalem, Jeremiah escaped to Egypt with king Zedekiah's daughters (Jer. 43:5-17) and Israel ceased to exist in Palestine.
In the meantime, the main body of Judah and Israel, living in exile in Assryia, took advantage of the wars which were then raging between Assyria and Babylonia, which resulted in Nebuchadnezzer setting up his world empire. During this period Israel in Assyria regained their freedom and commenced their long trek to the north and west, through the Pass in the Caucasus Mountains, known then as "the Pass of Israel," and into Europe. This is recorded in the historical book of 2 Esdras 13:39-48, which is not accepted by the church crowd as authentic history. (I believe because it contradicts some of their pet theories.) While in Assyria, the Bible account comes to a strange and mysterious close.
But historians, and ethnologists (those who study the divisions of races) pick them up in history. There is no gap for the earnest searcher of truth, in spite of the deliberate road-blocks which have been thrown up by organized religion. There are many writers who confirm this, men like Turner, Huxley, Rawlinson, Hannay, Sir A. Keith, as well as ancient writers such as Diodorous, Herodotus, Homer, Josephus and Strabo. They link the Israelites of Assyria with those who were then known as "Sons of Sac," or "Sacae" and tie them in with the modern Anglo-Saxons.
More than a thousand monuments and gravestones have been discovered across Europe which show inscriptions telling of the migrations of the Israel people across Europe. Men like Olinger and Van Impe, refuse to accept these proofs, because they know they will be revealed as having been wrong in their theology. This they refuse to accept!
While there is some evidence that portions of the tribes of Reuben, Gad and Manasseh went as far east as China and possibly Japan, and main body traveled north and west, as the prophets had prophesied, moving from the shores of the Black and Caspian Seas; stopping and settling for a while, then moving on; leaving a colony here and there, but drawn ever westward by some irresistible force towards the APPOINTED PLACE of 2 Samuel 7:10. Pockets of Israelites can still be found in every European country.
As they moved, their name and language changed. They were known as Saka, Sajoi, Sacae, Sakasuna, Kumri, all meaning "Sons of Isaac." They eventually reached the British Isles and became known as Angles; Saxons; Jutes; Danes; Celts; Frisians and Normans. They located themselves among the descendants of the Israel people who had arrived in the British Isles, hundreds of years before. They grafted themselves into the Israel Olive Tree (read Romans 11, with this in mind and see if it doesn't give this marvelous chapter a great deal more sense than what we have been taught by our pastors.) These people were of all one common stock. Historians such as Sharon Turner and Gibbons say they are "all of one stock." Prof. Huxley, in his book RACIAL ORIGINS, says: "The invasion of the Saxons, Goths, Danes and the Normans changed the language of Britain, but added no new physical elements. Therefore we should talk no more of Celts and Saxons, for they are all one blood. I never lose an opportunity of rooting up the false idea that the Celts and Saxons are of different races." (UNQ.)
Prof. Freeman, in his ORIGIN OF THE ENGLISH NATION, says: "Tribe after tribe, Angles, Saxons, Jutes, Frisians, poured across the sea to make new homes in the British Isles. Thus grew the British nation. . . a nation formed of the union of various tribes of the same racial stock. The Dane hardly needed assimilation; he was another kindred tribe, coming later than the others. Even the Norsemen were kindred." (UNQ.)
Edwin Guest, L.L.D. said: "The Scots were descended from the Scythae and they came to Ireland from Spain." (UNQ.)
Alexander del Mar, in his book ANCIENT BRITAIN REVISITED says: "Picts was the name of a tribe of Gotha. Scythians, Scutes and Scots are one word and mean one people." (UNQ.)
The Saxons therefore derived their name from "SACAF", meaning "Sons of Sak," or "Isaac's sons," (Gen. 21:12.) Romans 9:7 tells us that the Israelites would not be named after Israel, but "In Isaac shall thy seed be called."
These eminent writers, and many more blow to "smithereens" the scoffings of the Israel-Identity critics who say: "not a single scholar . . . anywhere . . . absolutely no one . . . puts their name to it.''
THE NATION OF THE JEWS
After seventy years of Babylonian captivity (Jer. 25:11, 12; 29:10), a remnant of the Southern kingdom of Judah returned to Jerusalem and established what became known later as the "Nation of the Jews." It is well for us to remember, that this nation of Jews was not the House of Judah or the House of David, even though they occupied the land of Judea. There had been a great intermingling in Babylon, not only of blood lines, for which Ezra and Nehemiah literally tore their hair out, but in intermingling of the Hebrew religion with that of the Babylonian occult religions. What emerged was JUDAISM, or more honestly TALMUDIC JUDAISM. This new religion was a "man made" religion, substituting the traditions of men, for the Law of God. (See Jesus condemnation of the Pharisees in Mark 7:7.) Many of the Pharises were not Israelites by blood (see Esther 8:17.) Less than 49,000 returned (Ezra 2:64 and Nehemiah 7:66) and there was a distinction made between "the people" and "the Jews." While they were apparently JEWS by religion, most of them were not racial Israelites.
Many had inter-married with the descendants of Ham; Canaanites; Hittites; Amlekites, etc., (Ezra 9.) They claimed that the entire land belonged to them. Their fore-fathers had made the same claim in 594 B.C. when they said to the Israelites: "Get you from the land; unto us is this land given in possession," (Ezekiel 11:15). This is the same thing that their descendants are saying to the Arab people today. Only today they say: "We have an inalienable right to this land, from God." This is pure "hogwash!" But they have been so clever in their claims, that they have fooled the majority of our Christian ministers into backing them, even though they "hate our guts."
A short study of Jeremiah 24 will reveal the difference between the "good" and "bad" figs of Judah. The good figs were removed and many of them merged with the Israelites in their journey across Europe and many eventually accepted Christ as their Savior and Messiah. But they were not the Jews of today. The "bad Jews" were the one's who were in Jerusalem when our Lord was on earth and who taunted and ultimately killed Him. These became a curse to every nation where they ever stopped, on their never ending wanderings. They were the one's Christ spoke to in Matthew 21:43, when He said: "The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation (not a church) bringing forth the fruits thereof.''
The misunderstanding and mis-application of the term JEW, as used today is responsible for much of the confusion that results from a national and personal application of Scripture and the understanding of Biblical prophecy.
In 2 Kings 16:6, where the Jews are mentioned for the first time in the Scriptures, we find them fighting against Israel.
As I syse mentioned frequently before, the cry of "anti-Semite" is ridiculous since the Semitic people have often fought with themselves down through the ages. it is improper to call those who are Semites, "anti-Semitic," although in truth, the Jews of today are the greatest anti-Semites of all ages, since they are persecuting the Arabs who are the true children of Abraham, while they are imposters.
People are not anti-Jewish because the Jew is Semitic (which he is usually not; for the majority of the Jews are Asiatic by blood and background), but because of Jewish behavior brought about through the teachings of their religious book the BABYLONIAN TALMUD. We should never consider the word JEW in either a racial or a religious sense. There are all four races found among the Jews and there are great divisions found, as far as their religious tenets are concerned. You will find no Jews today who conform to the Old Testament. There is no blood shed for the remission of sins, as was taught in (Lev. 17:11; Heb. 9:22.) Some even teach that they do not sin; others state that they can atone for their sins by doing good and possibly 75% or more are either agnostic or outright atheists.
The vast majority of present day Jewry is made up of Jews from Eastern Europe, the ASHKENAZI JEWS who were known in the 8th Century AD as Khazars and who converted to Judaism, from heathen worship, en masse. They have no Abrahamic blood in their veins and their ancestors never lived in Palestine. All the major leaders of the Israeli from 1948 on, have been Ashkenazi Jews. The Khazars were Japhethic people and were neither Semites or Hebrews. The American taxpayers have been spending millions of dollars every year, to resettle these Russian Jews in the United States and to teach them Hebrew. (For an interesting and educational look at these people, read THE THIRTEENTH TRIBE, written by the Jewish writer, Arthur Kosetler.)
On p.17 of this book he says: "The large majority of Jews after World War II in the world, were of Eastern origin - and thus perhaps mainly of Khazar origin. If so, this would mean that their ancestors came not from the Jordan, but from the Volga; not from Canaan but from the Caucausus, once believed to be the cradle of the Aryan race. Genetically, they are more closely related to the Hun, Uigur and Magyar tribes than to the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Should' this turn out to be the case, then the term anti-Semitic would be void of meaning, based on a misapprehension shared by both killers and victims. The story of the Khazar E'mpire, as it slowly emerges from the past, begins to look like the most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetrated." (UNQ.)
Prof. A. N. Poliak, Professor of Medieval Jewish History at Tel Aviv University, published his book KHAZARIA in 1944, he says: "The descendants of this settlement (Khazars in Eastern Europe) - those who stayed there and those who emigrated to the United States, or went to Israel - constitute the largest majority of world Jewry." (UNQ.)
Koestler closes his book with this statement: "It is perhaps symbolic that Abram Poliak, who was a Jewish patriot, made a major contribution to our knowledge of Jewry's Khazar ancestry, UNDERMINING THE LEGEND OF THE CHOSEN PEOPLE." (UNQ.) (Emphasis mine.)
It would be well for every Christian to remember that the word JEW has four distinct meanings in the Scriptures:1 - A DESCENDANT OF JUDAH - an ethnic designation. These are a tiny minority among Jewry.The destiny of the two categories of Jews, the "good" and "bad" figs can be found in Jer. 24-29. The good Hebrews went into Chaldean captivity where God gave them a new heart to serve Him, while the "bad Jews", who were rotten, were never absorbed or assimilated with other nationalities or cultures, but were always able to maintain their "identity as an evil people." In Mal. 1:4, they are called ". . . the border of wickedness, and, the people against whom the Lord hath indignation forever." These people would be driven through all nations and would become a "taunt and a curse" wherever they went. Here is what Jeremiah 8:3 says about them: "And death shall be chosen rather than life by ALL THE RESIDUE OF THIS EVIL FAMILY, which remain in all the places whither I have driven them, saith the Lord of hosts.''
2 - A REMNANT - of those who went into Babylonian captivity and returned under Ezra and Nehemiah to rebuild Jerusalem.
3 - AN INHABITANT OF JUDEA - a geographical designation.
4 - A PERSON WHO FOLLOWS THE TALMUDIC RELIGION OF JUDAISM - These can be of any race. They developed a corrupt religion in Jerusalem, (see 2 Kings 17:32-34) - "So they feared the Lord, and made unto themselves of the lowest of them priests of the high places, which sacrificed for them in the houses of the high places. They feared the Lord (doesn't say they served Him) and served their own gods, AFTER THE MANNER OF THE NATIONS WHOM THEY CARRIED AWAY FROM THENCE. Unto this day they do after the former manner: they fear not the Lord, neither do they after their statutes, or after their ordinances, or after the law and commandment which the Lord commanded the children of Jacob, whom He named Israel." This is a perfect word description of TALMUDIC JUDAISM. For a New Testament description of them, read 1 John 2:22, 23. Isaiah 29:13 says of them: ". . . they have removed their heart far from me, and their fear towards me is taught by the precepts of men." Jesus said of them in Mark 7:13 - "Making the word of God of non-effect through your traditions . . ."
In the 10th Chapter of John's Gospel, we find Jesus delivering a very important message concerning the "sheep of the house of Israel." (See also Matt. 15:24.) Then in John 10:26, He clarifies this by telling the Jewish religious leaders in very clear terms: "But ye believe not, BECAUSE YE ARE NOT OF MY SHEEP. ." Those of Judah and Israel "the whole house of Israel," would follow Him. This is one reason most of His earthly ministry was not in Judea, but in Galilee to the north, where most of the Israel people, such as Lazarus, Mary and Martha lived. In the John 10 discussion, Jesus is using the example of a shepherd and his sheep. In verse 4 He explains how He goes before his sheep and they follow Him because they know His voice. He indicates by His words in vs. 16, I believe, that there will be members of His fold who will not be Israelites: "Other sheep I have, which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd." Then in vs. 19 we find there was a "division therefore again among the Jews (Judeans) for these sayings." The ones who believed Him, like Joseph of Arimathea, were evidently Israelites and those who did not were of Jewry, the Edomite crowd. These were the "fake JEWS (Judeans) who dragged Him to trial and were responsible for His death, the same crowd that tried to kill Him when He was a baby in Bethlehem. Remember, Herod was an Edomite. These people expelled believers from their synagogues John 9:22, and were the "fake chosen" who tried to kill Him in John 10:31. These are the same one's who have retained their devil's religion (Talmudic Phariseeism) until this day. (See John 8:42-47; Acts 13:45.)
In Jesus time, these Jews had already nullified the word of God through their heathen traditions (Matt. 15:9) - "In vain do they (Jews) worship me (God), teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." The Jewish rabbis who wrote the Talmud said that God consulted them, when He had a decision to make. It was natural that they would reject the Son of God made flesh, (John 1:14.) They had to, in order to maintain their devil's religion.
When they were backed up against the wall in John 19:15 and had to make a decision, these "so-called Jews" asserted: "We have no king but Caesar." If they had been true Israelites, they would have accepted Him as Nathaniel did in John 1:47-49. (See also 43:15, 21; Isa. 44:8.)
In 21:41, where Jesus had just finished telling the Parable of the Nobleman, the Jewish leaders passed judgment on themselves, when they answered His question regarding what the nobleman should do to those rebels who refused to accept the king. They said: "He (Christ) will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out His vineyard (Kingdom) unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their season." They knew who He was; they recognized Him as such and they knew they were the evil, deceitful husbandmen who were about to kill the King's Son and heir.
Titus 1:13; 14; 1 Timothy 1:4; 4:7; Acts 3:23 and 2 Peter 1:16, all substantiate my claim that JUDAISM was and still is, a false religion. According to Jewish authorities today. the JUDAISM of today, is the PHARISEEISM of the time of Jesus, unchanged. The Prophet Isaiah predicted that the name of the JEWS would be left as a curse to true Israel and that even their facial characteristics would be such that it would be a witness against them: "And ye (JUDAH) shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen (Israel); for the Lord God shall slay thee (compare with Luke 19:27) and CALL HIS SERVANTS BY ANOTHER NAME (Christian.)" In 3:9, Isaiah said: "The show of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not . . ." The Jew is proud of his evil works, he brags about his control of the abortion clinics, the liquor and dope industry, his control of prostitution and pornography.
In 1 Thess. 2:14, 15 we find the Apostle Paul condemning the Jewish pattern of behavior and in verse 15 saying: "They please not God and are contrary to ALL men."
It is interesting to note, that God will use the heathen nations of the world, who are not really free agents, since they operate under his control, for the purpose of chastising His people Israel. These heathen will be sent against a hypocritical people whose motto is "In God we trust!" and who sing about Christ being their King, and who put huge signs which proclaim: "JESUS IS LORD OF THIS CITY!" while the city council votes for equal rights for Sodomites and the people tolerate abortion clinics in the city limits, and filthy, Jew produced films in their theatres. This chastisement will be used to cleanse our Israel people and it will be harsh. We have brought it on ourselves. The present troubles in America, are Christian-Israel made. We are responsible for them, not the Jews, not the aliens who have poured across our borders, but ISRAELITES. Read carefully Isaiah 10:5, 6 and see how Assyria was used to discipline Israel. Notice what will happen to Israel when they repent and turn to their God (Isaiah 54:14 - "In righteousness shalt thou be established; thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come nigh thee." Then a furtherance of this promise is vs. 17 -"No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn (Hebrew - "rasha" meaning: "to declare wrong.") This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord (Israel), and their righteousness is in me saith the Lord." Isa. 60:3 predicts that ". . . the Gentiles (nations of the world) shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising." Isaiah 61:9 "And their (Israel's) seed shall be known among the Gentiles (nations or people), and their offspring among the people: all that see them (Israel) shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the Lord hath blessed." This was true of America, a few years ago, when Americans were welcomed around the world and when we were looked up to as an example for others. Now, because of Israel's backsliding, we are the "laughing stock" of these same people and will become their "door mats," unless we return to our God in repentance.
These promises, and many others, were made to "true Israel," they were never made to the "bad figs" that are called JEWS. In fact Jesus said of the "bad fig tree" in Matthew 21:19 - "Let no fruit grow on thee henceforth FOREVER." (Emphasis added.)
In 2 Chron. 6:16, "true Israel" is called the "Temple of God," while in Rev. 2:9; 3:9, the "false JEW" is called "the synagogue of Satan."
Most of our evangelical and fundamentalist theologians assume that the modern Jews are JUDAH; they assume that one day they will all be saved when they accept Christ as their Messiah and that 144,000 of them will assume an evangelistic role and go out into a world, where the Holy Spirit has been withdrawn, and save multitudes. Yet these same preachers say that people cannot be saved without the wooing of the Holy Spirit. How contradictory they are! For the most part, these men have completely lost sight of true Israel; those who disappeared into Assyrian captivity and were finally brought to their APPOINTED PLACE IN THE NEW WORLD.
Let me digress for a few paragraphs, to show you how we know America is the APPOINTED PLACE of 2 Samuel 7:10. There are a few Scriptural clues that are never used by the Identity detractors. Isaiah 41:18-20 gives a description of this new land. "I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water." This has been done in Palestine on a small scale. But our detractors never want to look at America and see what God hath wrought here. Go to southern California and Arizona, look at areas which a few years ago were nothing but desert and see how they are now producing the food which feeds the world. Vs. 19 - "I (God) will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together." Note the type of trees which will be found in this wilderness area. The "oil tree" which Strong's Concordance (8081) says is the ''pine;'' ''the fir tree, with the cypress'', (1265) and most interesting of all, the ''box'' tree (8391). Why is this of interest? Because there are only two places in the world where these trees grow. In Lebanon, where they are almost extinct, and on the west coast of the United States, where our "giant redwood - identical to the "Cedars of Lebanon" were planted by God, for His people, some over 5,000 years ago. It staggers the imagination.
Isaiah took great delight in describing this APPOINTED PLACE that God would give to His Israel people. In his short, but extremely interesting 18th chapter, he describes this country. This is a chapter that most of our preachers bypass, because they cannot explain it. It tells us about a land lying to the west of Palestine, beyond the "rivers of Ethiopia" (Nile River). It was a land which would be literally covered with "buzzing wings." There is hardly a moment, day or night, when the skies of America and Canada are not covered by crossing airplanes.
Secondly, note that this country would send their ambassadors abroad, not in "vessels of reeds" mentioned in your King James Version (whoever heard of any nation, let alone a mighty one, who would send her representatives across the seas in such flimsy vessels?) The correct translation of this should have been "water drinking vessels," where they came up with the idea of ships made of papyrus, is anyone's guess. It just doesn't make sense. Until this century, when the airplane became the major source of overseas travels, the steam ship was the means by which our officials traveled. The Ferrer-Fenton Bible, which is translated directly from Hebrew says. ''Who on the face of the seas sends its letters by agents (ambassadors.)"
The location of the country Isaiah speaks about is somewhere west of Palestine. If you go due west from Jerusalem, you would cross the mouth of the Nile River in the vicinity of Alexandria, Egypt. Continue west and you would cross Libya, Tunisia and Morocco, then the Atlantic Ocean and finally, if you went far enough, you would arrive in the heartlands of America, somewhere in the vicinity of Atlanta, Georgia.
This nation of people, living in a land which had once been a wilderness, was to be a people who had been "terrible from their beginning." Ferrer-Fenton says: "A terrible race in its Past and its Future." The word "terrible" as used in the King James Version is the Hebrew word "yare" which means: "to revere; put in fear of; frighten." Up until the last thirty years or so, the United States of America, from her official beginning in 1776, had been an undefeated nation, admired and feared, or revered by everyone, friend and foe alike. While we were still babies, we defeated the most powerful military machine on earth, the mighty British Empire. We defeated the Mediterranean pirates which had caused proud England to pay them tribute; we defeated mighty Spain and stopped her dream of becoming a world empire. Then we fought two world wars, where it was our military and industrial might, along with the help of our God, that caused us to be victorious. We have been a "terrible" awe inspiring people from our inception in every meaning of the word. This is why what we see happening in foreign policy today is so shocking, as we see the "statesmanship of America, being replaced by chicken-ship." Yet even today, if America were to assemble her military might for conflict, the whole world, even mighty Russia, would hesitate to attack us.
Isaiah went into a great deal of detail in describing this country. Since it did not exist at that time and would not for some 2500 years, he had to use words which he and his readers would understand. He said this land would be "meted out and trodden down."
The Hebrew word for "trodden down" literally means "to walk over." The United States is the only country in the world which has been completely surveyed north to south, east to west. This was done by the U.S. Metes and Bounds Act in the early 1800's. All of America's lands have been literally laid out by compass until we are a "nation measured out by lines underfoot."
There is no other great nation on earth that is divided by rivers such as ours. The mighty Mississippi divides us east from west; the eastern portion is further divided by such rivers as the Ohio, the Tennessee. To the west, our country is divided by the Columbia, the Missouri, the Arkansas, and the Colorado Rivers. So when you hear your pastor say "There is no such nation like the United States mentioned in Scripture," you know he is either lying to you or is a very poor Bible scholar.
The teaching by most of our pastors that Israel will return to Palestine, is a violation of 1 Chronicles 17:9, where it says that "Israel will never move from this APPOINTED PLACE." The Lord informed David that his people would, sometime in the future, be moved to a land of rivers and mountains (see Ezekiel 34:12-14.) and would be moved no more. Present day Palestine, and even all the lands which were promised to Abraham in the Middle East, could not possibly contain all the Israel people and cannot be considered as a land of rivers. In Acts 26:7, where the Apostle Paul says the twelve tribes were "serving God day and night," the Jews were teaching at this time that the ten so-called "lost tribes" had no part in Israel and they were the accusers of the Christians who were the "true Israelites."
According to the teaching of the Apostle John, in 1 John 2:22, 23, the Jews are ''anti-Christs" and according to 2 John 7-11, if we help or assist them in any way, we then "become partakers in their evil deeds." Don't get angry with me, church folks, I didn't write that, it comes from the inspired apostle. In Rev. 2:9, our risen Savior speaks of these Jewish apostates as "those who say they are JEWS (Judeans) and are not, but are of the synagogue of satan," which ties in directly with His denunciation of them in John 8:44.
Time and time again, erroneous interpretations of the Scriptures, mostly brought about through Jewish pressure, has resulted in false assumptions. One of these is the "Rapture Doctrine" which is based on a few verses which are taken completely out of context and which contradict others. Whenever you find a doctrine that contradicts some portions of Scripture, you know you are looking at a false doctrine. To name a few: (Psalms 37:9, 10), which indicate that the wicked shall be taken away and the righteous shall inherit the earth - no rapture here. Vs. 29 says: "The righteous shall inherit the earth, and dwell therein forever." Nothing said about dwelling forever in a nebulous place called "heaven." In vs. 34, we are told that the righteous shall inherit the land and shall see the wicked as they are "cut off." I believe this. I believe that God will keep His people through the terrible days of the tribulation and as this verse and many others teach, we shall see the destruction of God's enemies. Proverbs 2:22 tells us that the "wicked shall be cut off from the earth . . "If there is any kind of "rapture" (which means "catching away") it will be of the wicked, not the righteous. Proverbs 10:30 says: "The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inherit the earth." Read also Christ's Parable of the Wheat and Tares and His explanation of it in Matthew 13:36-43. The wicked are the ones who are removed and the righteous remain to "shine forth as the sun in the (earthly) Kingdom of their Father . .
In 1 Thessalonians 4:17, where it states: "then we which are alive and remain, shall be caught up together with them (the righteous dead who have been raised) in the clouds, (the word "remain" means: "To be a part not taken or destroyed"). This indicates to me that the wicked will already have been removed at this time. The clouds mentioned here signify the multitude of the heavenly host which will accompany our Lord on His return. Jude 14 says He will return with ten thousands of His saints. If we take this literally, it means 10-million of them. The word "air" does not refer to the heavens, but the breathable atmosphere. Paul was merely telling Christians that the dead in Christ would be resurrected first. They will be called forth from the grave, wherever they may be and will be given glorified bodies, like unto Christ's. Then the Christians who are still alive at His return, will also go through this change, instantaneously and will join the vast host of heaven in the earth's atmosphere. We shall then forever be with the Lord on this earth. In Rev. 5:9, 10 we read: ". . . and redeemed us to God by thy blood, out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation. And hast made us unto God, kings and priests: AND WE SHALL REIGN ON THE EARTH." How can this be any plainer?
Since every doctrine, principle and interpretation MUST be consistent with, and proven by two or more Scriptures, it must be established in the Old Testament and confirmed in the New (see Matthew 18:16; John 5:31, 32.) The Apostle Paul does not contradict Old Testament teachings, even though there are some in Identity who teach this; he confirmed them. Not one verse may contradict another, or all will fall.
The JUDAIZERS know this and so through their false teachings, they have neutralized potential "soldiers of the King," and changed them into "prostitutes of the devil."
The Apostle Paul was not a JEW by blood, although most preachers will tell you he was. He was a Semite, because he was descended from Shem. He was a Hebrew, because he was a descendant of Eber, through Benjamin. He was an Israelite because Benjamin was of Israel. He was a Roman citizen (Acts 22:25-27.) He was a JEW, only through mistaken belief (Acts 21:39). He was a PHARISEE, by political affiliation (see Phil. 3:5) and he became a Christian by being born again. In spite of the mis-use of the word JEW in the King James version, Paul was NOT a JEW by blood.
God never made any covenant with a people called JEWS. I dare you to attempt to prove this! Please don't use the old discredited ploy of saying that the word JEW and ISRAELITE mean the same thing, since they do not!
The New Covenant was dedicated by the blood of Jesus (Matt. 26:28; 1 Cor. 11:25; Heb. 9:12.) He was to be the "Mediator" of the New Testament (Covenant) and it was to become effective on His death (Heb. 9:15-17.) God promised that He would put His law and His Spirit in the minds of true Israelites (both of Israel and Judah.) He never mentioned doing this to anyone called JEWS. (See Isa. 59:21; 61:9; 62:12; Heb. 8:6-10.) At Pentecost, representatives of all the Israel tribes were present in Jerusalem, (James 1:1; 1 Peter 1:1) when God sealed the New Covenant with His presence through the Holy Spirit, (Acts 2:1-4.)
The House of Israel began to recognize their Messiah and the Jews, who were not of Israel have rejected Him to this day. They still remain in their apostate religion (Mark 7:7-13). They persecuted those Israelites who had undergone the "born from above" experience of John 3:3, and who were now called Christian (Acts 11:26.) They have hated them and plotted there destruction ever since. The teaching that the Jews are God's chosen people, is therefore "blasphemy."
The Jews are not going to be saved as a nation and return to the Holy Land in Palestine. They are not going to accept Jesus Christ as their Messiah, en masse. They will increase their opposition to our Lord and His church and will persecute true Israelite Christians in their synagogues during these LATTER DAYS, (see Luke 22:12.) This will continue until the time of God's harvest, shown in Matthew 13:37-43 when the Son of God, will send His angels to remove the "children of the wicked one," (compare with John 8:44) and utterly destroy them (Luke 19:27).
Moses and the children of Israel were not JEWS, they were Old Testament Christians, even though that name was unknown at the time. 1 Cor. 10:1 says. ". . . our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; and were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; and did all eat the same spiritual meat; and did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and THAT ROCK WAS CHRIST." (Emphasis added.)
Hebrews 11:26 indicates that Moses was a Christian, for he "esteemed the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt; for he had respect to the recompense of the reward."
1 Peter 1:11 indicates that the Old Testament prophets were Christians for they were "Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow." They were saved in the same manner that Israelites and others are saved today, (see Acts 4:12.)
There should really be no such date as B.C. (Before Christ) or A.D. (after Christ), since He has always existed and was the creator of all things. (See John 1:3; Eph. 3:9; Col. 1:16; Heb. 1:2.)
Simply knowing that we are Israelites is not enough. Too often Identity Christians have become "puffed up," with self-importance when all they can see is their Abrahamic ancestry. In this respect, Olinger spoke some truth when he said: "Identity seems to act as a 'rabbit trail' to divert Christians from the main business at hand. It is not correct, really, to call Identity a cult, or a heresy, since they do not deny any of the major doctrines or fundamentals of the faith. But Identity Christians often spend more time trying to convert fellow Christians to Identity, rather than trying to save the lost. Many study the Bible only to prove their preconceived ideas about Identity. (I wonder how he characterizes fundamentalists who do the same thing to prove their doctrines? - AUTHOR), not to find principles by which they can become more Christ like . . . while a person may be saved and believe in Identity, the chances are he will not be a victorious Christian."
Now much of what Olinger says here is true. I personally have met Identity believers who I seriously doubt were "saved." "By their fruits shall ye know them." (A man who cannot talk without using filthy language; who is drunk a good share of the time and takes delight in telling shady stories, is not my idea of what a Christian should be.) These people have become so "puffed up" with self-importance in their knowledge that they are "seed of Abraham," that this is all that matters to them. They have become so legalistic in their interpretation of the Scriptures, like what is the proper name to use for Jesus and God; what day is the proper day to worship; should we still observe the Feast Days, etc., that this is all that matters to them. John the Baptist warned us against unseemly "ethnic pride" in Matthew 3:9, when he told the Jews: "And think not to say within yourselves, we have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham." The knowledge that we are Israelites, should be a mighty humbling experience, for with it, if we are honest, we will see just how far short we have fallen of God's desire for us.
It is rather interesting to note that orthodox Jews do not claim to be Israel. The Rev. Merton Smith, of London, wrote the Chief Rabbi in London in 1918, asking him the following questions: The answer came from the Rabbi's office under the date of Nov. 18, 1918.
Q - "Are the people known as Jews throughout the world. the descendants of Judah and Levi, or is there a known admixture of other tribes?
A - "The people known as Jews came from the Tribes of Judah and Benjamin, with some descendants of Levi." (We know this is only a very small minority, so this answer is evasive.)
Q - If so, what portion, and what authority is there for saying so?
A - "As far as is known, there is no further admixture of tribes." (To give the lie to this, look at Esther 8:17.)
Q - If not, what has become of the other tribes. Where according to your knowledge are they?
A - The ten tribes have been absorbed among the nations of the world.
Q - "If this is unknown, where were they when Judah lost knowledge of them? Does Orthodox Jewry still look for the recovery of these tribes at some later date?"
A - "We look forward to the gathering of all the tribes at some latter date."
But Jewish orthodoxy says: "The ten Tribes HAVE NO PART IN THE JEWISH KINGDOM," (from the Jewish Encyclopedia.)about.
