From the very beginning, various dangers have threatened the civilizations man has built, the peril was always potentially there, but when would it eventually strike? There would be deceptively peaceful periods, lengthening out from weeks into years.
The anticipated danger seemed to come no closer until people would doubt that danger really existed. People are always far too ready to close their minds to anything which they don't want to believe, anything which upsets their peace of mind.
As the years of peace are lengthened out, fewer and fewer people would admit the possibility of another war, preparedness would slacken. The nations would become less and less able to meet the peril when it actually occurred. Even those who could see the danger still had to give their major attention to the day‑by‑day affairs of life. They had to appoint watchmen to maintain vigilance for the whole community, and give warning upon the approach of imminent danger.
The watchman's task has always been a thankless one. There are treacherous fifth column elements, which are really working for the defeat of the nation, at the hands of its enemies. These subversive elements readily gain and hold the public's ear, because they soothingly tell the people what they want to hear. Go back to sleep, no danger can come, and there is nothing you can do.
The honest and patriotic citizen, who sees and warns of the impending danger, is hated because he disturbs the public's indolence with his warnings. First they say that he is just foolishly imagining dangers, which don't exist. When this doesn't silence him, then they say that he desires the calamities, which he is warning his people to avoid.
Meanwhile, danger approaches faster and faster because of the public indifference and failure to take the necessary precautions. When it does strike, it is far more terrible than it would have been if the warnings had been heeded. The price of indifference is always paid in the blood of your sons, who need not have died if you had done your part.
Like all‑important developments in the life of nations, this one was well known to Yahweh and it gets frequent attention in the Bible. Yahweh chooses certain men to be His watchmen, and inspires them to stick to their unpopular task. It is a great responsibility and if well done, a great honor. The watchman's responsibility is to speak the truth, come what may. From then on, the responsibility is that of the people who have been warned.
Yahweh told the prophet in Ezekiel 3:17, "Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word of My mouth and give the warning from Me."
Ezekiel 33:2‑6 continues, "When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts and set him for their watchman: if, when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he bloweth the trumpet and warn the people: then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet and taketh not warning, if the sword come and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. But if the watchman see the sword come and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned: if the sword come and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."
The real essentials of life have not changes in all of history; the qualities and actions, which are really good, are exactly the same today as they were in Moses' time. What evil is there that is really new? When a merchant cheats you by selling shoddy merchandise, is it any different because today you pay for it with dollars instead of shekels? If you don't leap for your life quickly enough, is it any consolation that you are run over by an automobile, instead of a chariot? Today, there are still those in high places of power who will betray the most sacred principles for thirty pieces of silver. As in ancient times, it is still important to know who watches the watchman.
Who are our watchmen? First we think of those to whom we have entrusted high public office. Whatever their duties may include, that of watching and giving warning is the primary duty, however they do not make up all the responsible watchmen. From the beginning Yahweh has recognized that politicians may fail to perform their duties. Someone must be watchman over all dangers, from within as well as from without, the record of this is found in the Bible. Since these warnings come from Yahweh, His watchmen are found in the ministry.
What are the dangers against which our watchmen should warn us? Every one which threatens our national security, whether from within the nation or without the nation. Have you been told that Yahweh is only interested in saving souls, then you have been grossly misinformed. Over 5/6ths of the Bible deals with the race and nation as such, and less than 1/6th with the individual.
What good did Lot's own morality do him while he lived in the city of Sodom, wasn't he in the midst of evil at all times, didn't it constantly threaten his very existence? Yahweh is vitally interested in racial and national integrity, as well as that of the individual. Many times in history, honest and moral people had to go through the awful calamities of the punishment, which came upon a corrupt nation in which they lived.
If our watchmen are not vigilant against crime, and we allow this to go on, then we must live under the conditions found in certain large cities, which have scandalized the nation. If our watchmen are not vigilant against the danger of foreign war, then our sons will die upon the battlefield in a needless sacrifice.
This won't be for the honor and safety of the nation, but paying the price of your own indifference to a situation, which you could have avoided if you had acted in time. If your watchmen are not vigilant against the great and growing danger of Jew, black, Jewish, queer revolution here at home, then those of you who survive can hope for nothing better than the slavery now imposed on many nations.
What has this to do with religion? Everything! Surely we need not remind anyone that Yahweh wants you to live under conditions of generally good morals. Your sons and your daughters will pattern their own lives upon what they see about them. Yahweh certainly wants you to have peace, but peace comes only from Yahweh, not from compromises with evil arranged between the jews in Palestine and the United Nations.
The Bible gives the only rule in Psalm 119:165. "Great peace have they which love Thy law: and nothing shall offend them."
Isaiah 32:17 records, "And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever."
Isaiah 48:18 continues, "O that thou hadst hearkened to My commandments! Then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea."
Yahweh wants us to have liberty. As part of one of the most important and impressive ceremonies of the Bible, Yahweh commanded in Leviticus 25:10, "Proclaim liberty throughout all the land, unto all the inhabitants thereof."
Yahshua opened His ministry with the quotation of Isaiah 61:1, "The spirit of Yahweh is upon Me: because Yahweh hath anointed Me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He hath sent Me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound."
In Romans 8:21 we are promised, "The glorious liberty of the children of Yahweh."
These are great prizes to be won but, they don't come automatically to the lazy, the indifferent or to the cowards. All of them have been lost, repeatedly and terribly, by public neglect. It is still true that the watchmen must be alert against danger, but someone must vigilantly watch the watchmen.
The coward or fearful cannot enter the Kingdom of God: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8)
Most of our politicians have failed miserably as watchmen, but thank Yahweh for the few loyal and honest ones. The drift into the very Judaism, which we are preparing to fight, continues at a rapid pace. We are being betrayed into Judaism by degrees, by the very men we have trusted with our safety. In our country they have been able to sell the people on this by calling it humanitarianism instead of Judaism.
Those elected to high public office are the watchmen selected by the people. When our cities were smaller and there were fewer forms of entertainment available, a candidate only needed leather lungs, great endurance, and a little money for travel expenses. With these few assets, he could reach most of the voters, for people came out to public meetings to hear the candidates.
Today this situation no longer exists, except for purely local office in the smallest towns. For the larger towns, the only way to show the voters your ability, your record and your principles, is through the commercial media of public communications, newspapers, radio and television. The cost of these services on the scale necessary for a statewide or nation wide campaign is fantastic to a degree that the public cannot realize.
It can be met only by powerful and wealthy organizations. When these organizations spend that much money, they usually think that they have bought the candidate and his office. They expect to assume the power to dictate the actions of the government and to make themselves masters of the nation. They force upon the government policies for their own benefit but ruinous to all others.
The men who will not sell out to them get no such support from others. Take yourself for example, how often have you contributed even $10.00 to the campaign fund for a good man? Without adequate backing, how many good men can be elected? Look over the list of the high public officers in the nation.
How many of them got there under their own steam, as compared to those who were put in office as the passive tool of some powerful organization? The general level of our state and national officers is so low, is not because there were no good candidates available, it is because you never heard of them.
The first to use this power of organization and money were those interested in corruption. They wanted jobs on the public payroll for the small fry, an occasional chance to embezzle some public funds, and mostly the power to channel the multi million‑dollar public contracts into their own hands. They were merely dishonest; they only wanted to steal from the nation, not to destroy it. Their proven success with this method of gaining power has attracted a far more sinister group. This group wishes not merely to steal some money from the nation, but to steal the entire nation itself.
The Judeo-Christian Clergy is as much to blame for these dishonest, antichrist, devils, perverts, queers, perverts, degenerates and other such evil men/women because they will not teach against them. They are subservient to all this evil because they are scared to death that they might lose their precious 501(c)(3) tax exempt status and so would have less money they can fleece their flocks out of. Those that trust them the most, and they have proven to be treacherous wolves in sheeps’ clothing.
Wherever the Russian armies have entered, this group who are an alien minority in all lands has paved the way for them. They are willing collaborators, who have ever since been kept in power as puppet governments, by the force of Russian bayonets. When these aliens can determine who gets public office, then the watchmen are only the agents of the enemy.
Naturally, this situation didn't escape the notice of Yahweh. It is not new; it is just a constantly recurring phase of the age‑old warfare of the satanic forces against the kingdom of Yahweh. As a counter measure, Yahweh commissioned His own watchmen, to watch the others. Yahweh's watchmen should be found among His ministers. For example, in the Old Testament in Ezekiel 3:17 the prophet was told, "Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at My mouth, and give them warning from Me."
We have learned to expect corruption in politics. If the clergy are alert to warn the nation, the worst perils can still be avoided. However, when the clergy fail in their duty, as far too many thousands of them are failing today, the situation becomes desperate, this is also not new. We had better study its terrible consequences in the past, and take warning.
In the prophesies of the Bible, Yahweh warned us of the very dangers we face today. He knew and He warned us, that the real danger would be internal, not from the outside. Psalm 74:4 tells us, "Thine enemies roar in the midst of Thy congregations."
The enemies of our God and Savior roar out their hatred of Him from positions they have secured even in our churches. They now even deny the virgin birth of Christ and the atonement made on the cross. They constantly attack the foundations of our American way of life from positions within our government. Yahshua made the warning more pointed, that the danger would be from within. In Mark 3:27 He said, "No man can enter into a strong man's house and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house."
Since the plunderer cannot enter until after the strong man has been disarmed and bound, this must be an inside job. Therefore Yahshua also said in Matthew 10:36, "A man's foes shall be they of his own household."
All who are well informed know that the danger from Jewish subversion at work in all branches of our government is real and terribly great. Nikita Khrushchev explained it himself in one of his speeches in Russia.
"We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism to Judaism. But, we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism, until they suddenly awaken to find they have Judaism."
We see this process going on under high pressure every day. Agencies of our government connived very effectively to assist in the overthrow of the Cuban government of Batista, because he was anti Jew. This wasn't because he was a dictator, for they fawn at the feet of the brutal murderer Tito of Yugoslavia, because he is a Red dictator.
You notice with what exceeding thoroughness they steered the invasion of the anti Castro forces into tragic disaster. The Red beachhead in our own hemisphere, which our own government deliberately helped to establish, is still growing stronger each day.
Our officials spout hypocritical platitudes of weak disapproval, but no effective actions against Cuba. Do you think they would have behaved like this if Nazi Germany or Fascist Italy had established a beachhead? Truly, "A man's foes shall be they of his own household." Our danger is not from fall out, but from sell out.
At home, they openly say that the danger to this nation is not from Red revolutionists, but from super patriots, men who want to keep our American way of life. Those in high places, who are not openly helping the drift into Judaism, are giving faint praise to the middle of the road doctrines. Yes, the middle of the road to Judaism.
By their definitions a middle of the roadman is one who says, "Judaism is all right, but let's adopt it only one step at a time." A right‑winger is a man who says, "Maybe we'd better not go completely Red." An extreme right‑winger or Fascist is one who wants to keep our American way of life without change.
Yahweh foretold all of this, for in Isaiah 56:10‑11 He said, "His watchmen are blinded: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs; they cannot bark: sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. Yea, they are greedy dogs, which never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain."
This willful blindness and ignorance is inexcusable in those who have eagerly sought the responsibility of the watchman's job. The real explanation is, "They are greedy dogs, which can never have enough; they all look to their own way, every one for his gain." By serving the enemies of our Christian civilization, they have been raised to high positions of power, glory and wealth.
The danger is very great. Not foreign invasion, but internal subversion has taken over many nations. Egypt, Iraq, Indonesia, Ghana, Guinea, Cuba and British Guiana, all these have fallen into the hands of Russia's accomplices before even a Russian soldier set a foot in their country. Now that they are openly our enemies and vote with Russia consistently in the United Nations, our own high officers still bleed us white to strengthen our enemies. Truly, our watchmen need watching.
As always, the great majority of our political leaders have not only failed to give us warning of this conspiracy, they have eagerly participated in it for the rewards it offered in behind the scenes support in election years. Yahweh foresaw this breach of trust. He knew that someone should watch the watchmen. This duty falls upon those who are honored by being called to be His spokesmen, when these fail in their duty, it is doubly tragic.
There is no doubt many church seminaries have been infiltrated by socialists and secret Jews, who have thoroughly brainwashed the young clergymen they have taught. You, who listen to these lessons, know that the Bible clearly commands segregation. However, most of the clergymen preach integration, in direct violation of Yahweh's laws.
You know that the Bible identifies the United Nations as a satanic organization, it is an accursed palace of strangers, which Yahweh will destroy in order to end its evils. In spite of this, most clergymen preach that the United Nations is mankind's only hope; apparently they never heard of Yahshua as mankind's only real hope!
You know that in the Bible, Yahweh forbids us to ally ourselves with the God hating pagan nations. Yahweh commands us to come out from among them, and be ye separate. Most of the clergymen preach that we must give up all of our own distinctive character, given to us by Yahweh, and ruin our people in order to enrich pagan nations. Then we are to teach them that paganism can bring them every good that the one true God has given to us.
What satanic evil is there left that these brainwashed clergymen have not praised and supported? Our people, who rely upon the clergy to tell them God's truth, are misled. Nevertheless, even when you are honestly mistaken, misled by those you trust, violation of Yahweh's laws will always bring its terrible consequences.
Jeremiah 6:10‑15 states, "To whom shall I speak and give warning, that they may hear? Behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of Yahweh is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it. For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them, every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of My people but slightly, saying Peace! Peace! When there is no peace. Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? Nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith Yahweh."
This treachery must have its awful consequences. Jeremiah 5:31 records, "The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their ears; and My people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?"
When the United Nations leads us into disasters from which no human power can save us, will it then do us any good to whine, "But, I didn't know any better! I thought that God was just an old fuddy duddy. I'd better get wise like Goldberg, Lodge, Rockefeller and the rest of the liberals."
When the disasters come, then we will realize the truth of Jeremiah 8:9. "The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: Lo, they have rejected the word of Yahweh; and what wisdom is in them?"
The indictment against the false clergy is terrible. Ezekiel 13:2‑10 relates it. "Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of Yahweh; thus saith Yahweh: Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the wall for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of Yahweh. They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying Yahweh saith: and Yahweh hath not sent them: and they made others to hope that they would confirm the word. Therefore, thus saith Yahweh: Because ye have spoken vanity and seen lies, therefore behold, I am against you, saith Yahweh. And Mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of My people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel: and ye shall know that I am Yahweh thy God. Because, even because they have deceived My people, saying peace and there was no peace!"
The penalty that Yahweh has set for the false clergymen, who mislead His people in these desperate days, will be swift and terrible when He returns to set things straight. What of the nation, which was deceived by them? There have been true watchmen who gave warning, but how many would believe them? No, the people preferred to believe the soothing lies of peace, even when they can see that there is no peace.
Remember what Yahweh said to Jeremiah! If the watchman blew the trumpet, but a man would not take warning, then the sword would take him away in his iniquity. In Jeremiah 6:17,19 Yahweh warns, "Also I set watchmen over you saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken! Hear O earth: behold, I will bring calamity upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts: because they have not hearkened unto My words, nor to My law, but rejected it."
The final terrible war, of which the few true watchmen have been warning us, is rapidly approaching. The people have been deceived into ignoring it. This only brings it upon us more quickly and certainly. The people have preferred to believe a pleasant lie, rather than the stern truth.
Therefore, for those who were deceived, the disaster will truly be the fruit of their thoughts. People have ignored the true watchmen, and followed deceivers into violations of Yahweh's laws. To them Hosea 10:13 says, "Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity: ye have eaten the fruit of lies."
You who have followed these lessons, and have heeded the warnings you know what is coming. You have turned to Yahweh for His protection. You will have Yahweh's protection. Read Psalm chapter 91. The watchman's task is a bitter and thankless one, as a rule. When the elect hear and give heed, then it is worth the trouble.
Folks I am sorry to send you this second post that is so long in just a few days, but the things are so very important that you know what you are dealing with. I am a watchman on the wall of Israel whom I believe to be the United States of America and it is my duty to Yahweh that I warn you of an enemy do diabolically evil and murderous that they are working day and night to destroy our people.
Whether you believe it or not they kidnap thousands of White Christian children off the streets of America every year. They take these children and kill them in the most horrible way possible; drain them of their blood, then cast the bodies out to be discovered by someone on a fishing tripe of hiking or something. But that is alright, it can’t be true for Willie hates Jews.
They are killing Palestinians in the middle east, mostly young children by the hundreds every day and it is sometimes told about in the papers, but most of the murders are kept hidden because the jews own the newspaper, magazines and etc. I tell you about it when I can get the information; but its alright if they kill these innocent children, because Willie hates Jews.
The court system is a mockery, the legal system is completely destroyed in America, but that’s alright because Willie hates the Jews. Innocent people are taken and thrown into the jails never to be seen or heard of again, a case in point is Earnest Zundel, although we still hear about him because he has been famous for trying to warn people about the Jews, so he still makes the newspapers some of the time. There are literally hundreds that are tried by secret courts and sentenced to death or life in prison. I tried to tell you about them but some say that’s alright it can’t be happening because Willie hates Jews.
The governments at all levels is corrupt with evil wicked men, both Jews and non-Jews because Christians are too lazy to even take the time to vote; they are happy with a can of beer, a football, or basketball (nigger ball) game on television, and a neighbor that has a wife he can screw when he gets horney. But if I tell you about the events the government is doing, that’s alright because Willie hates the Jews. So it can’t be happening I can’t see it. After all Willie hates Jews.
The police are now being used by the enemy to kill and harass our people, you can read about that in the newspapers because the enemy wants you to see and hear about this so you will fear the police, the FBI, and etc. But it can’t be happening because Willie hates the Jews.
The government confiscates money, cars, homes, land, and other things from our people daily, but since it is not happening to you that does not matter, Willie hates the Jews.
The medical system is in shambles, and doctors kill more people yearly than are killed in traffic accidents, by drugs, by alcohol but that’s alright it is not happening to me, after all Willie hates the Jews.
Even a close friend by the name of John Knight, or at least that is the name he has given me, says if the Khazars are Jews. There are thousands of books, encyclopedias, dictionaries, and other writings stating that they are; but he says “if the Khazars are Jews.” But that is alright if they are because Willie hates the Jews.
He says the Jews are the most stupid people on earth, and that have ever existed; that they are even more stupid than the blacks who can barely tip the IQ scale, an invention to make Jews look smarter than they really are. I agree with him. Take for example the Askanazi, the Khazar Jews have said that when they take control of the world that they will search out and destroy every single Sephardic Jew on earth; and yet the Sephardic Jews spend billions in support of the Askanazi Jews in their efforts to destroy us.
Now that is really stupid but then we do the same thing, we send our taxes into Washington, and they forward it to the Jews in that bastard state of Israeli. To support them in their efforts to murder Christians in Palestine and around the world, including America.
The Jews caused the murder of Vicki Weaver and her son Sammy at Ruby Ridge, Idaho;
The Jews caused the mass killing at Waco, Texas, victims were mostly black, but where was the NAACP, Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the other famous blacks? No where to be seen or heard because they knew that if they said anything the Jews would cut them off from the money table and they would have to subsist by getting a job and they are too lazy to work.
The Jews caused the bombing at the Atlanta, Georgia Olympics and tried to frame an innocent man for the deed, but failed in that attempt so all efforts to get the guilty party was stopped because the authorities were getting too close to the Jews who actually did the deed.
The Jews bombed flight TWA 800 to kill some diplomats and others and that was covered up by the government and the jews in Washington.
The Jews bombed the Murrar Federal Building in Oklahoma City, and have tried ever since to blame the Arabs for it, they have even managed to murder an innocent man, a dupe if you will, because he didn’t have enough sense to learn about the Jews and that they are the most traitorous people who have ever existed, and would throw him to the dogs at the first opportunity.
The Jews were behind the IRS who murdered Gordon Kahl in Arkansas and the sheriff there because the sheriff learned the truth too late, so they murdered him and told the story that Kahl did it deed. And as usual they set the place on fire to destroy any evidence of their guilt. They were not even sure they had the right man so they cut off his hands and feet and destroyed them so no one could test the fingerprints or footprints to see who the body actually was.
The Jews bombed that airliner over Lockerbie Scotland and blamed it on the Arabs, when they did it themselves to cover up some misdeeds the Israelis were doing at the time.
The Jews bombed the WTC number one with the help of the FBI who furnished the bomb making materials, the man to build the bomb, the truck that transported the bomb from it origin to the parking lot under the WTC building and then filmed the actual explosion. All that information was on the Internet for a long time, I don’t know if it is there now or not; and the transcript proving all this was true was also there. But that’s alright Willie hates the Jews.
The Jews bombed the WTC on 911 because they were covering up the misdeeds of that little bastard country again, as it was getting in hot water all over the world, and was being condemned for their actions. But after the WTC they could go ahead with their murdering at will of the Palestinians and no one would say much about it because the WTC buildings were bombed. When anyone with any sense at all can see that the Mossad did the actual bombing by flying the planes by remote control into the buildings.
The Jews murdered several people with a bomb in California, and even confessed to it in many places, but nothing was done because they were Jews. But if I tell you about it that’s alright because Willie hates the Jews.
Innocent babies are being murdered by the thousands every week in America by the damnable Jewish abortion doctors, but that’s alright that is a woman’s right to choose and if I mention it Willie hates the Jews.
Drugs are being shipped into America, by the thousand pounds by the Jews directly from that little bastard state of Israel, and it is reported once in a while in the newspaper; but if I mention it its alright Willie hates the Jews.
We go to war against a country that has never done us harm, but actually tried to do us a favor back in 1988 by refusing to raise the price of oil which started this whole thing against them in the first place. The State Department sent April Galspe to Iraq to tell Saddam that they didn’t care what he did to Kuwait because they were stealing Iraqi oil with slant drilling. Then when he tried to stop it, they went to war against him, because the oil companies wanted it. But if I tell you and remind you that this is what happened and who was really at fault; that this second war is a Jews war and being fought because the Jews wanted it; that’s alright because Willie hates the Jews.
The government even now is making plans to invade Syria, which was in actuality the birthplace of our people, because the Jews want it that way, but if I mention it its alright because Willie hates the Jews.
I have not said that I hate the Jews, I only warn you about them because they is what Yahweh appointed me to do; to tell you about an enemy that is destroying our people; and it my duty to do that, and so I will to the best of my ability, until the day I die.
So now I tell you about the word “Jew” and how it got started so you will know what liars, deceivers, and murderous dogs the Jews actually are.
WHO ARE THE TRUE JUDAHITES
OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH?
This is the great, big, fat, jew LIE which gives jews the notion that they're Israelites. Jews are NOT Israelites, and they are NOT descendants of Judah‑‑IF THE HOLY BIBLE IS CORRECT!!!
The Holy Bible never ONCE confuses the word "Judah" with the word "Jehudi." The King James translators may have made a few mistakes, but the ORIGINAL Hebrew and Greek words were CLEAR AS A BELL.
The English word "jew" appears in the Holy Bible 276 times. It's translated from the Hebrew word "yhudaiy" [Strong's #3062] 86 times, and from the Greek word "Ioudaios" [Strong's #2453] 190 times. It is NEVER translated from the Hebrew word "Yhudah" [Strong's #3063], because each and every one of the 762 times "Yhudah" appears in the Holy Bible, it's translated as "Judah."
Judah and Jehudi are two entirely different people. They had two entirely different sets of descendants (who rarely if ever intermarried, and whose children were "put away" on the rare occasions that they did intermarry). They had two entirely different sets of ancestors, with Judah being a son of Jacob (a descendant of Seth), and Jehudi being a descendant of Ham. Their generations lived in two entirely separate geographies (Judah's lived in Judaea and Jehudi's originally lived in Canaan).
I repeat: under both Israelite AND Jewish law, the children of an Israelite who married a jew (or any other non‑Israelite), were PUT AWAY, so it is IMPOSSIBLE for jews to have ever been "Israelites," or members of the Tribe of Judah:
Deuteronomy 7:1 When Yahweh thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and shall cast out many nations before thee, the Hittite, and the Girgashite, and the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite, seven nations greater and mightier than thou;
Deuteronomy 7:2 and when Yahweh thy God shall deliver them up before thee, and thou shalt smite them; then thou shalt utterly destroy them: thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor show mercy unto them;
Deuteronomy 7:3 neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.
Origins of the Words "Jew" and "Judaism" The original name for the people we now call Jews was Hebrews. The word "Hebrew" (in Hebrew, "Ivri") is first used in the Torah to describe Abraham (Gen. 14:13). The word is apparently derived from the name Eber, one of Abraham's ancestors. Another tradition teaches that the word comes from the word "eyver," which means "the other side," referring to the fact that Abraham came from the other side of the Euphrates, or referring to the fact Abraham was separated from the other nations morally and spiritually.
Another name used for the people is Children of Israel or Israelites, which refers to the fact that the people are descendants of Jacob, who was also called Israel.
The word "Jew" (in Hebrew, "Yehudi") is derived from the name Judah, which was the name of one of Jacob's twelve sons. Judah was the ancestor of one of the tribes of Israel, which was named after him. Likewise, the word Judaism literally means "Judah‑ism," that is, the religion of the Yehudim. Other sources, however, say that the word "Yehudim" means "People of G‑d," because the first three letters of "Yehudah" are the same as the first three letters of G‑d's four‑letter name.
Originally, the term Yehudi referred specifically to members of the tribe of Judah, as distinguished from the other tribes of Israel. However, after the death of King Solomon, the nation of Israel was split into two kingdoms: the kingdom of Judah and the kingdom of Israel (I Kings 12; II Chronicles 10). After that time, the word Yehudi could properly be used to describe anyone from the kingdom of Judah, which included the tribes of Judah, Benjamin and Levi, as well as scattered settlements from other tribes. The most obvious biblical example of this usage is in Esther 2:5, where Mordecai is referred to as both a Yehudi and a member of the tribe of Benjamin.
In the 6th century B.C.E., the kingdom of Israel was conquered by Assyria and the ten tribes were exiled from the land (II Kings 17), leaving only the tribes in the kingdom of Judah remaining to carry on Abraham's heritage. These people of the kingdom of Judah were generally known to themselves and to other nations as Yehudim (Jews), and that name continues to be used today.
In common speech, the word "Jew" is used to refer to all of the physical and spiritual descendants of Jacob/Israel, as well as to the patriarchs Abraham and Isaac and their wives, and the word "Judaism" is used to refer to their beliefs. Technically, this usage is inaccurate, just as it is technically inaccurate to use the word "Indian" to refer to the original inhabitants of the Americas. However, this technically inaccurate usage is common both within the Jewish community and outside of it, and is therefore used throughout this site.
Who is a Jew? A Jew is any person whose mother was a Jew or any person who has gone through the formal process of conversion to Judaism.
ORIGIN OF THE WORD JEW
Near the time of Christ, there once existed a metropolis city, which was a trade center for the then known world. This city of wealth was once destroyed in 146 B.C., and its treasures carried off to Rome. But Julius Caesar restored it a hundred years later, and the Roman colony flourished so much that it soon became one of the most prominent centers in Greece. Some would say that in the 2nd century it was the richest city in Greece.
This city was a city of wealth, of luxury and of immorality. It seemed to have one quality that marked it as a commercial hot spot of its day, for it is said that "Jews flocked to it." That city was ancient Corinth, the chief city in the Roman Province of Achaia. This is the city that Paul spent at least a year and one-half preaching the Gospel and encountering the full force and fury of the "Jews."
Times does not seem to change much do they? The same problem is facing most of the major cities in America today. The commercial cities we have in the United States are fast becoming breeding cesspools of corruption and all manner of evil. Could this be caused by a "Jewish" society and their influence? Many wonder!
Strong's Concordance more or less defines the words "Jew" and "Jews" as: "in the sense of a country, i.e., a Judean." The word "Jew" is used 22 times in the King James Version of the Bible in the New Testament, and the word "Jews" is used 172 times and 170 times of those are from the same #2453 as the above "Jew" definition.
There are another 6 times the plural word "Jews'" is used and all but one of these is this #2454. So for the 200 times, the words: "Jew, Jews, and Jews'" are used in the New Testament, at least 197 occasions are referring to a Judean in the sense of from a place, i.e., as from a country.
The question still haunts many and they have often asked just who are these people the Bible calls "Jew, Jews, and Jews'"? Why were these people not just simply called "Judeans," "Israelites," or "Judeans whose religion was Judaism?" This is the age old word problem of society problem that is surrounded with so many, many, lies and deceptions. "THE FEAR OF THE JEWS" syndrome that plagues society today.
Much of it as a result of the so-called holocaust which we have been told 10,000 times 10,000 that the Germans cremated 6-million Jews during WWII. This story has installed a guilt complex in the American people, until the word Jew has become a non speakable word, and if one dares to utter the word except in reverence and humility they will be attacked by both Jews and Christians.
Therefore, we have prepared this study to prove to you and any other thinking American that the bulk of these people called "Jew" or "Jews" in the Bible, were not and are not of the House of Israel or of the House of Judah.
Then who are these people who have plagued the pages of history for so, so very long? The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia defines "Jew" as the same word of Strong's #2453 in the following words: "'Jew' denotes originally an inhabitant of Judah, (2 Kings 16:6 applies to the two tribes of the Southern Kingdom) but later the meaning was extended to embrace all descendants of Abraham." (James Orr, Volume III, page 1675)
The question which faces us here is WHO had the authority and the power that: "extended the meaning to embrace all descendants of Abraham?" Mr. Orr goes on to say in his definition that: "'Jews' (always pl.) is the familiar term for Israelites in the Gospel (esp. in John), Acts, Eph. etc."
This definition only serves to confuse the issue even more, who, how, when and why was such confusion entered into society and the Holy Scriptures? Why, if the term "Jew," refers to Israelites, did they not just simply call them Israelites or Judeans, whose religion was Hebrew?
It is an incontestible fact that the word "Jew" did not come into existence until the year 1775. Prior to 1775 the word "Jew" did not exist in any language on earth. The word "Jew" was introduced into the English language for the first time in the 18th century when Sheridan used it in his play "The Rivals," Chapter 2, p. 1, "She shall have a skin like a mummy, and the beard of a Jew." Prior to this use of the word "Jew" the word "Jew" had not become a word.
Contrary to what most people believe Shakespeare never saw the word "Jew" nor did he ever use the word "Jew" in any of his works, the common general belief to the contrary notwithstanding. In his "Merchant of Venice," V, III, I, 61, Shakespeare wrote as follows "what is the reason? I am a Iewe; hath not a Iewe eyes?" You see there was not even a letter "j" or "J" until the middle of the 18th century. Check any encyclopedia you wish for proof of this.
In the Latin Jerome 4th century Vulgate Edition of the New Testament Jesus is referred to by the Genitive Plural of "Iudaeus" in the Gospel by John reference to the inscription on the Cross, "Iudaeorum." It was in the 4th century that Jerome translated into Latin the manuscripts of the New Testament from the original languages in which they were written.
This translation by Jerome is referred to still today, as the Vulgate Edition by the Roman Catholic Church authorities, who use it today. Jesus is referred to as a so-called "Jew" for the first time in the New Testament in the 18th century editions in the English language of the 14th century first translations of the New Testament into English.
The history of the origin of the word "Jew" in the English language leaves no doubt that the 18th century "Jew" is the 18th century contracted and corrupted English word for the 4th century Latin "Iudaeus" found in Jerome's Vulgate Edition. Of that there is no longer any doubt.
The available original manuscripts from the 4th century to the 18th century accurately trace the origin and give the complete history of the word "Jew" in the English language. In these manuscripts are to be found all the many earlier English equivalents extending through the 14 centuries from the 4th to the 18th century.
From the Latin "Iudaeus" to the English "Jew" these English forms included successively: "Gyu," "Giu," "Iu," "Iuu," "Iuw," "Ieuu," "Ieuy," "Iwe," "Iow," "Iewe," "Ieue," "Iue," "Ive," "Iew," and then finally the 18th century, "Jew." The many earlier English equivalents for "Jews" through the 14 centuries are "Giwis," "Giws," "Gyues," "Gywes," "Giwes," "Geus," "Iuys," "Iows," "Iouis," "Iews," and then also finally in the 18th century, "Jews."
With the rapidly expanding use in England in the 18th century for the first time in history of the greatly improved printing presses unlimited quantities of the New Testament were printed. These revised 18th century editions of the earlier 14th century first translations into the English language were then widely distributed throughout England the English speaking world among families who had never possessed a copy of the New Testament in any language.
In these 18th century editions with revisions the word "Jew" appeared for the first time in any English translations. The word "Jew" as it was used in the 18th century editions has since continued in use in all the editions of the New Testament in the English language. The use of the word "Jew" was thus stabilized.
The best known 18th century editions of the New Testament in English are the Rheims (Douai) Edition and the King James Authorized Edition. The Rheims (Douai) translation of the New Testament into English was first printed in 1582 but the word "Jew" DID NOT APPEAR IN IT.
The King James Authorized translation of the New Testament into English was begun in 1604 and first published in 1611. The word "Jew" did not appear in it either. The word "Jew" appeared in both these well known editions in their 18th century revised versions for the first times.
Countless copies of the revised 18th century editions of the Rheims (Douai) and the King James translations of the New Testament into English were distributed to the clergy and the laity throughout the English speaking world. They did not know the history of the origin of the English word "Jew" nor did they care. They accepted the English word "Jew" as the only and as the accepted form of the Latin "Iudaeus" and the Greek "Ioudaios." How could they be expected to have known otherwise? The answer is they could not and they did not. It was a NEW English word to them.
When one studies Latin they are taught that the letter "I" in Latin when used as the first letter in a word is pronounced like the letter "Y" in English when it is the first letter in the words like "yes," "youth" and "yacht." The "I" in "Iudaeus" is pronounced like the "Y" in "yes," "youth," and "yacht" in English. In all the 4th century to 18th century forms for the 18th century "Jew" the letter "I" was pronounced like the English "Y" in "yes," "young," and "yacht." The same is true of the "Gi" or the "Gy" when it was used in the place of the letter "I."
The present pronunciation of the word "Jew" in modern English is a development of recent times. In the English language today the "J" in "Jew" is pronounced like the "J" in the English "justice," "jolly," and "jump."
This is the case only since the 18th century. Prior to the 18th century the "J" in "Jew" was pronounced exactly like the "Y" in the English "yes," "youth," and "yacht." Until the 18th century and perhaps even later than the 18th century the word "Jew" in English was pronounced like the English "you" or "hew," and the word "Jews" like "youse" or "hews." The present pronunciation of "Jew" in English is a new pronunciation acquired after the 18th century.
The German language still retains the Latin original pronunciation. The German "Jude" is the German equivalent of the English "Jew." The "J" in the German "Jude" is pronounced exactly like the English "Y" in "yes," "youth," and "yacht." The German "J" is the equivalent of the Latin "I" and both are pronounced exactly like the English "Y" in "yes," "youth," and "yacht."
The German "Jude" is virtually the first syllable of the Latin "Iudaeus" and is pronounced exactly like it. The German "Jude" is the German contraction and corruption of the Latin "Iudaeus" just as the English "Jew" is the contraction and corruption of the Latin "Iudaeus." The German "J" is always pronounced like the English "Y" in "yes," "youth," and "yacht" when it is the first letter of a word. The pronunciation of the "J" in German "Jude" is not an exception to the pronunciation of the "J" in German.
The earliest version of the New Testament in English from the Latin Vulgate Edition is the Wiclif, or Wickliff Edition published in 1380. In the Wiclif Edition Jesus is there mentioned as One of the "iewes." That was the 14th century English version of the Latin "Iudaeus" and was pronounced "hew-weeze," in the plural, and "iewe" pronounced "hew-wee" in the singular.
In the 1380 Wiclif Edition in English the Gospel by John XIX.19, reads "ihesus of Nazareth kyng of the iewes." Prior to the 14th century the English language adopted the Anglo-Saxon "kyng" together with many other Anglo-Saxon words in place of the Latin "rex" and the Greek "basileus." The Anglo-Saxon also meant "tribal leader."
In the Tyndale Edition of the New Testament in English published in 1525 Jesus was likewise described as One of the "Iewes."
In the Coverdale Edition published in 1535 Jesus was also described as One of the "Iewes." Also in the Coverdale Edition the Gospel by John, XIX.19, reads "Iesus of Nazareth, kynge of the Iewes." In the Cranner Edition published in 1539 Jesus was again described as One of the "Iewes."
In the Geneva Edition published in 1540-1557 Jesus was also described as One of the "Iewes." In the Rheims Edition published in 1582 Jesus was described as One of the "Ievves."
In the King James Edition published in 1604-1611 also known as the Authorized Version Jesus was described again as one of the "Iewes." The forms of the Latin "Iudaeus" were used which were current at the time these translations were made.
The translation into English of the Gospel by John, XIX.19, from the Greek in which it was originally written reads "Do not inscribe 'the monarch of the Judeans' but that He Himself said 'I am monarch.'"
In the original Greek manuscript the Greek "basileus" appears for "monarch" in the English and the Greek "Ioudaios" appears for "Judeans" in the English. "Ioudaia" in Greek is "Judea" in English. "Ioudaios" in Greek is "Judeans" in English. There is no reason for any confusion.
If the generally accepted understanding today of the English "Jew" and "Judean" conveyed the identical implications, inferences and innuendoes as both rightly should, it would make no difference which of these two words was used when referring to Jesus in the New Testament or elsewhere. But the implications, inferences, and innuendoes today conveyed by these two words are as different as black is from white. The word "Jew" today is never regarded as a synonym for "Judean" nor is "Judean" regarded as a synonym for "Jew."
When the word "Jew" was first introduced into the English language in the 18th century its one and only implication, inference and innuendo was "Judean."
However during the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries a well-organized and well-financed international "pressure group" created a so-called "secondary meaning" for the word "Jew" among the English speaking peoples of the world. This so-called "secondary meaning" for the word "Jew" bears no relation whatsoever to the 18th century original connotation of the word "Jew."
It is a misrepresentation presented to the world deliberately by this well organized and well financed "pressure group" to deceive Christians. (Facts Are Facts, by Benjamin H. Freedman, pp. 15-20) (And to claim a heritage that is not theirs). This sure seems to be the more correct terminology. It appears from all our readings that the Jews of all ages, always do best what their father, the devil does - and that is lie. (John 8:44)
The Greek words used for "know and knowledge" seem to carry somewhat of a different context or concept than todays English words do. In both the Hebrew and Greek tongue these words carried the connotation - "to know fully."
"Knowledge strictly is the apprehension by the mind of some fact or truth in accordance with its real nature...Knowledge is distinguished from 'opinion' by its greater certainty. The mind is constituted with the capacity for knowledge, and the desire to possess and increase it.
“The character of knowledge varies with its object. The senses give knowledge of outward appearances; the intellect connects and reasons about these appearances, and arrives at general laws or truths; moral truth is apprehended through the power inherently possessed by men of distinguishing right and wrong in the light of moral principles; spiritual sympathy...
“The highest knowledge possible to man is the knowledge of God, and while there is that in God's infinity which transcends man's power of comprehension, God is knowable in the measure in which He has revealed Himself in creation, and supremely in Jesus Christ who alone perfectly knows the Father, and reveals Him to man..." (The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, pages 1815-1816)
The problem with knowledge is that it can "enlarge" a man's ego. St. Paul, who is said to have authored the book of 1st Corinthians, penned these words in the 8th Chapter verses 1 and 2:
"...we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth. And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know."
In these passages, Paul was addressing, primarily, the pagan ritual of things offered to idols and their influence upon Christian fellowship with the heathen community, but the concepts of knowledge are for general application. Paul shows that a conceited knowledge is not a good thing.
But the man who understands that love is for more important than knowledge has a handle on "knowing" and the limits contained therein. True love for you neighbor (fellow Israelite) has a real concern that consults the interest of others. There can be found a common evidence of ignorance in a person and that evidence is a conceit of knowledge. That is why Paul said, "if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing as yet he ought to know."
Many believe that Paul used these words here, because of the arrogance and forcefulness of the Jews, whose religion was Judaism (Traditions of the Elders - at that time in history) and their attitudes towards the "goyium," i.e., White Israelites. These Jews always want to be in control and more or less run the show.
The person who knows most, is the one who best understands his own ignorance and the imperfections of human knowledge. The vain and conceited person, that "thinks" he knows everything, is drunk on his own imagination, a real Jewish trait.
He should examine himself to see if he really knows any thing alright. It surely is one thing to know truth and another thing to know truth as it ought to be known. When truth is known alright it will duly improve our knowledge. For God said: "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge (why?) BECAUSE THOU (you) HAST (have) REJECTED KNOWLEDGE (therefore God will), I will also reject thee..." (Hosea 4:6)
The man or woman who truly knows the YHWH of True Israel are taught and guided into knowing truth aright, and so must the living of his/her life accordingly. The man or woman who has a vain and conceited opinion of him/herself is impeding the leadership and/or guidance of the Holy Spirit.
This kind of knowledge can not be bought or sold. True wisdom does not come from books or personal experience, but rather from YHWH, His son and His Holy spirit. If the "Jew" word problem and society problem had never been introduced into society things might have been different, but it is there, it is a real live issue of today, for you and I. We have to obtain truth aright from Scripture, history, both secular and Biblical, and from letting the Holy Spirit guide us into all truth, see John 14, "Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." (Matthew 7:20)
Now, let us return to the wicked, commercial and immoral city of Corinth, that according to scholars, "Jews flocked to this trade center." (Acts 18:1-18; Romans 16:21; 1 Corinthians 9:20) In Acts 18 we find that Paul encountered the Jewish problem first hand.
1). There were some Jews (and/or Judeans) there, along with some Greeks.
2). Paul reasoned with them, some opposed him and blasphemed and he said their blood would be on their heads.
3). Some Judeans believed in Christ. Jews lived among Israelites and Greeks in Corinth.
4). Upset Jews rose up in insurrection against Paul in strife.
5). The Jews instilled fear and silence in Corinthians, making them afraid to speak the truth.
6). The deceived Jews (Judeans) had to have a teacher (Paul) to show a more perfect knowledge of YHWH and Christ.
7). Apparently all Jews did not worship God.
8). Paul is accused by Jews before the Roman court.
9). The court cleared Paul of any wrong.
10). The Jews took their contempt out on another person.
There are many people who live in Texas and are called Texans. But all these Texans are not of the same race, region, or religion. There are some True Israelites (Hebrews) in Texas. We are sure that there are some Jewish Texans also. How can one tell one from the other.
There is probably no way one can, unless, they tell you who they are or what they are or we can see their fruits which produce evidence. If a person is asked if he is Jewish or an Israelites, we feel that a true Israelite would tell all he knows about his religion.
But Jews, back then and even today, are almost always afraid of the truth. John 8:44 says that the father of the Jews is the devil and a liar. Apparently the real nature (part of the definition of know, supra) of the Jew is trickery, deception and lies. True Israelites know that it is wrong to lie instinctively. (Taken, in part, from Facts or Facts by Benjamin Freedman)
It is important to note that being a Jew has nothing to do with what you believe or what you do. A person born to non‑Jewish parents who has not undergone the formal process of conversion but who believes everything that Orthodox Jews believe and observes every law and custom of Judaism is still a non‑Jew, even in the eyes of the most liberal movements of Judaism, and a person born to a Jewish mother who is an atheist and never practices the Jewish religion is still a Jew, even in the eyes of the ultra‑Orthodox. In this sense, Judaism is more like a nationality than like other religions, and being Jewish is like a citizenship. See What Is Judaism?
This has been established since the earliest days of Judaism. In the Torah, you will see many references to "the strangers who dwell among you" or "righteous proselytes" or "righteous strangers." These are various classifications of non‑Jews who lived among Jews, adopting some or all of the beliefs and practices of Judaism without going through the formal process of conversion and becoming Jews. Once a person has converted to Judaism, he is not referred to by any special term; he is as much a Jew as anyone born Jewish.
Although all Jewish movements agree on these general principles, there are occasional disputes as to whether a particular individual is a Jew. Most of these disputes fall into one of two categories.
First, traditional Judaism maintains that a person is a Jew if his mother is a Jew, regardless of who his father is. The liberal movements, on the other hand, consider a person to be Jewish if either of his parents was Jewish and the child was raised Jewish. Thus, if the child of a Jewish father and a Christian mother is raised Jewish, the child is a Jew according to the Reform movement, but not according to the Orthodox movement. On the other hand, if the child of a Christian father and a Jewish mother is not raised Jewish, the child is a Jew according to the Orthodox movement, but not according to the Reform movement! The matter becomes even more complicated, because the status of that children's children also comes into question.
Second, the more traditional movements do not always acknowledge the validity of conversions by the more liberal movements. The more modern movements do not always follow the procedures required by the more traditional movements, thereby invalidating the conversion. In addition, Orthodoxy does not accept the authority of Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist rabbis to perform conversions, and the Conservative movement has debated whether to accept the authority of Reform rabbis.
About Matrilineal Descent Many people have asked me why traditional Judaism uses matrilineal descent to determine Jewish status, when in all other things (tribal affiliation, priestly status, royalty, etc.) we use patrilineal descent.
The Torah does not specifically state anywhere that matrilineal descent should be used; however, there are several passages in the Torah where it is understood that the child of a Jewish woman and a non‑Jewish man is a Jew, and several other passages where it is understood that the child of a non‑Jewish woman and a Jewish man is not a Jew.
In Deuteronomy 7:1‑5, in expressing the prohibition against intermarriage, God says "he [ie, the non‑Jewish male spouse] will cause your child to turn away from Me and they will worship the gods of others." No such concern is expressed about the child of a non‑Jewish female spouse. From this, we infer that the child of a non‑Jewish male spouse is Jewish (and can therefore be turned away from Judaism), but the child of a non‑Jewish female spouse is not Jewish (and therefore turning away is not an issue).
Leviticus 24:10 speaks of the son of an Israelite woman and an Egyptian man as being "among the community of Israel" (ie, a Jew).
On the other hand, in Ezra 10:2‑3, the Jews returning to Israel vowed to put aside their non‑Jewish wives and the children born to those wives. They could not have put aside those children if those children were Jews.
About the Agudath Ha‑Rabonim Statement In March, 1997, the Agudath Ha‑Rabonim issued a statement declaring that the Conservative and Reform movements are "outside of Torah and outside of Judaism." This statement has been widely publicized and widely misunderstood, and requires some response. Three points are particularly worth discussing: 1) the statement does not challenge the Jewish status of Reform and Conservative Jews; 2) the statement is not an official statement of a unified Orthodox opinion; 3) the statement was made with the intent of bringing people into Jewish belief, not with the intention of excluding them from it.
First of all, the Agudath Ha‑Rabonim statement does not say that Reform and Conservative Jews are not Jews. Their statement does not say anything about Jewish status. As the discussion above explains, status as a Jew has nothing to do with what you believe; it is simply a matter of who your parents are. Reform and Conservative Jews are Jews, as they have always been, and even the Agudath Ha‑Rabonim would agree on that point. The debate over who is a Jew is the same as it has always been, the same as was discussed above: the Reform recognition of patrilineal decent, and the validity of conversions performed by non‑Orthodox rabbis.
Second, the Agudath Ha‑Rabonim is not the official voice of mainstream Orthodoxy. Their statement does not represent the unified position of Orthodox Judaism in America. In fact, the Rabbinical Council of America (the rabbinic arm of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America) immediately issued a strong statement disassociating themselves from this "hurtful public pronouncement [which] flies in the face of Jewish peoplehood."
Finally, before one can denounce a statement like this, one should make an attempt to understand the position of those making the statement. According to Orthodoxy, the Torah is the heart of Judaism. All of what our people are revolves around the unchanging, eternal, mutually binding covenant between G‑d and our people. That is the definition of Jewish belief, according to Orthodoxy, and all Jewish belief is measured against that yardstick. You may dispute the validity of the yardstick, but you can't deny that Conservative and Reform Judaism don't measure up on that yardstick. Reform Judaism does not believe in the binding nature of Torah, and Conservative Judaism believes that the law can change.
The Agudath Ha‑Rabonim did not intend to cut Reform and Conservative Jews off from their heritage. On the contrary, their intention was to bring Reform and Conservative Jews back to what they consider to be the only true Judaism. The statement encouraged Reform and Conservative Jews to leave their synagogues and "join an Orthodox synagogue, where they will be warmly welcomed." I believe the Agudath Ha‑Rabonim were sincere, albeit misguided, in this intention. I have known several Orthodox and Chasidic Jews who believed that if there were no Reform or Conservative synagogues, everyone would be Orthodox. However, my own personal experience with Reform and Conservative Jews indicates that if there were no such movements, most of these people would be lost to Judaism entirely, and that would be a great tragedy.
The opinion of mainstream Orthodoxy seems to be that it is better for a Jew to be Reform or Conservative than not to be Jewish at all. While we would certainly prefer that all of our people acknowledged the obligation to observe the unchanging law (just as Conservative Jews would prefer that all of our people acknowledged the right to change the law, and Reform Jews would prefer that all of our people us to acknowledged the right to pick and choose what to observe), we recognize that, as Rabbi Kook said, "That which unites us is far greater than that which divides us."
There are two classes of people in the world who claim to be the seed of Abraham and Israelites. One is the Christians who have, of course, accepted Christ as the Messiah. The other class is those who say they are Jews but reject Christ as the Messiah of Israel. Both claims cannot be true, therefore we shall let the Bible answer the question:
“Now to Abraham and his SEED were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed which is Christ.” (Galatians 3:16)
That answer is clear, but here is more truth on this subject:
“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. THERE IS NEITHER JEW NOR GREEK, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. AND IF YE BE CHRIST’S, THEN ARE YE ABRAHAM’S SEED, AND HEIRS ACCORDING TO THE PROMISE.” (Galatians 3:26-29)
First off let see that this verse obviously is not a true statement because there were obviously slaves in Christ’s time on earth. There was also women on the earth at that time also. Now I full well realize that many will say this just means that someone who is saved it does not matter if they are male or female or if they were slaves or not, or if they were jews or not.
For Christ came ONLY TO THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL, and that sure is not the Jews:
Matthew 15:24: “But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
We know also that IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE IF A PERSON IS A JEW OR NOT because Christ and others said the jews were the children of the devil, vipers and etc., in the following verses: Matthew 3:7; 11:12; 12:39; 12:45; 23:15; 23:35; Luke 9:41; John 8:23; 8:44; 8:47; 10:25-26; Acts 1:6; 2:40; 13:6-10; Romans 2:14; 4:15; 6:16; 7:7; 1 John 3:4; 3:10; Revelation 2:9; 3:9.
Joshephus relates the story of how the children of Esau were converted to Judaism:
Between the time of Nehemiah and the birth of Christ, the problem of intermarriage increased. The climax of the problem came about a century and a half before the birth of Christ, when the Judean, John Hyrcanus, conquered the heathen cities in Palestine and forced the Canaanites to become Judeans [“Jews”].
Josephus, the Judean historian, writing in about 95 A.D. wrote of this:
“Hyrcanus took also Dora and Marissa, cities of Idumea [Greek form of Edom], and subdued all the Idumaeans; and permitted them to stay in that country, if they would be circumcised, and make use of the laws of the Judeans; and they were so desirous of living in the country of their forefathers, that they submitted to the use of circumcision, and the rest of the Judean ways of living; at which time therefore this befell them, they were hereafter no other than Judeans.” (Ant. Book 13, ch. 9 par. 1)
A footnote in Josephus quotes Ammonius, an ancient grammarian, who says further:
“The Judeans are such by nature, and from the beginning, whilst the Idumaeans were not Judeans from the beginning, but Phoenicians and Syrians; but being afterward subdued by the Judeans and compelled to be circumcised, and to unite into one nation, and be subject to the same laws, they were called Judeans.”
This same footnote also quotes Dio, the ancient historian:
“That country is also called Judea, and the people Judeans; and this name is given also to as many as embrace their religion, though of other nations.”
Josephus continues his history of how the Judahites incorporated the Edomites and Canaanites and a history of the son of Hyrcanus named Aristobulus:
“He was called a lover of the Grecians; and had conferred many benefits on his own country, and made war against Iturea, and added a great part of it to Judea, and compelled its inhabitants if they would continue in that country, to be circumcised, and to live according to the Judean laws. (Josephus Ant. Book 13, ch. 11, par. 3)
“Now at this time the Judeans were in possession of the following cities that had belonged to the Syrians, and Idumeans, and Phoenicians: [Here he lists 23 non‑ Israelite cities]; which last [city] they utterly destroyed, because its inhabitants would not bear to change their religious rites for those peculiar to the Judeans. The Judeans also possessed others of the principle cities of Syria, which had been destroyed.” (Josephus Antiquities Book 13, chapter 15, paragraph 4)
This all took place at least a century before Christ. It is obvious, then, that by the time Christ was born a great host of the people living in Judea were Canaanites and Edomites by race, although they were Jews by religion and Judeans by citizenship. Even the ruling dynasty of the Herods were Edomites. Josephus speaks of:
“Herod, who was no more than a private man, and an Idumean, i.e., a half‑Judean” (Josephus Ant. Book 14, ch. 15, p. 2)
A footnote here says:
“Accordingly, Josephus always esteems him an Idumean, though he says his father Antipater was of the same people with the Judeans, and a Judean by birth, as indeed all such proselytes of justice as the Idumeans, were in time esteemed the very same people with the Judeans.”
The Esau‑Edomite nation [“Idumea”] ceased to exist as a separate nation at this point in history. And yet the Bible is clear that Edom would be the enemy of Israel in the latter days.
How could these prophecies be fulfilled, if there are no Edomites left in the world? There is only one nation in the world that can prove ancestral ties with Edom, and the Jews themselves claim that dubious distinction. The Jews have thus adopted the materialistic and anti‑Christ attitude that characterized the father of the Edomites, Esau.
As judgment for their sins, including that of the Crucifixion of Christ, God cast them out of Palestine in 70 A.D. whereupon they fled to North Africa and Spain. We find what happened to them in The American People’s Encyclopedia for 1954, page 15‑492, under “The Jews.”
“Following their dispersal many spread across North Africa to Spain and during this movement converted many of the Berber tribes to Judaism. This had little effect on physical type, since most of the Berbers were likewise of that Mediterranean Race. That portion which moved into Spain and later northward achieved considerable wealth and prestige and became known as SEPHARDIM JEWS.”
The Gospel Was Preached To Abraham: The Context of Galatians 3:8:
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”
Before we get into the specific text of Galatians 3:8, the immediate context of the letter to the Galatians will help us to correctly interpret this text. The correct interpretation of this particular text is critical to understand the meaning and application of the gospel in the New Testament.
This letter was written to “the churches of Galatia.” (Galatians 1:2) The Galatians were also the recipients in part of the letter of 1 Peter where thy are referred to as “scattered” (1 Peter 1:1; Gk; diaspora) which means “the (converted) ISRAELITE resident in the Israel nations. (Strong’s Concordance #1290). The Galatian churches were, therefore, Israelites composed of both “Jews,” or Judeans, and Greeks (part of the scattered ten tribes of the Northern House of Israel) who were converted to Christianity, residing in Gentile (The word “Gentile” is the translator’s choice of the Greek word ethnos (Strong’s #1484) which means “a race...a tribe...”
The Biblical context shows that the word “Gentile” or “nation” or “nations” originally referred to those of the Adamic race, specifically the “nations” of the sons of Noah (Genesis 10:32). Later the word “nations” sometimes narrowed to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel (Genesis 17:4-5); Deuteronomy 32:8). As punishment for Israel’s disobedience, God promised to “...scatter you (Israel) among the nations...” (Deuteronomy 4:27), i.e., among the Adamic nations) countries (like Galatia) outside of Palestine.
Paul wrote to the Galatians to expose and combat what he called “another gospel.” (Galatians 1:6) It was a perversion “of the gospel of Christ.” (Galatians 1:7) Apparently, the Israelite Galatians were entertaining, and being persuaded by, a judaistic teaching that by “the works of the law” (Galatians 3:2) in Christ. Paul precedes to correct this other heretical gospel by explaining the true one. As he does, he not only defeats the pharisaical “justified by works” doctrine (referring to the Mosaic Law), but also the present day Judeo-Christian concept regarding to whom the gospel applies.
To show the true gospel, Paul illustrates the relationship between Abraham and the gospel. Just as Abraham was justified by God because he “believed God,” (Galatians 3:6) so God would justify the heathen (Once again, “heathen” is the translator’s choice for the same Greed word ethnos also translated “Gentiles” or “nations.” One wonders whether the variety of English words used was meant to be confusing to lead people to interpret these words in a universal manner. It would have been more consistent to always interpret this Greek word ethnos as (“nations.”) through faith. (Galatians 3:8)
Galatians 3:8, stated in its entirely, is instructive:
“And the scripture, FORESEEING that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached BEFORE the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.”
In “FORESEEING that God would justify the heathen (nations) through faith,” God “preached BEFORE the gospel unto Abraham...” The words “foreseeing” and “before” immediately infer that the gospel preached to Abraham was THE SAME ONE that was preached to the nations by Christ and His Apostles in the New Testament.
Once again, the general Judeo-Christian assumption is that “the gospel” began at the first advent of Christ. According to Galatians 3:8, that is a false supposition.
It is also commonly conjectured that the word “nations” (“heathen” or “Gentiles”) in 3:8 means non-Adamic or non-Israelites. Is this true? Let us take a closer look at the meaning of the word “nations” of 3:8 from the Old Testament passages quoted by Paul.
The Context of Genesis 12:3: It is clear from Galatians 3:8 that “the gospel” was applied specifically to Abram in these words of promise in Genesis 12:3:
“And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and IN THEE SHALL ALL FAMILIES OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED.”
Also it is clear from the scriptures that Yahweh does not recognize any other race or people on earth except the Israelites:
Amos 3:2: “You only have I known of all the families of the earth...”
Notice that Paul used the word “nations” in Galatians 3:8, but in Genesis 12:3 the word “families” is employed. Since we have already defined “nations” in the Old and New Testament (see footnote #1), let us examine the word”families.”
The Hebrew word for “families” is mishpachah (Strong’s #4940), which means “a family, i.e., circle of relatives: fig. a class (of persons), a species (of animals), or sort (of things): by extens. A tribe or people...” So, this word could refer to people (since animals would not make sense in regard to Abraham) either figuratively or physically as a “circle of relatives.”
This Hebrew word mishpachah is used 300 times and translated “families” 289 times, “kindreds” 9 times and “kinds” 2 times. It is used predominantly in the Pentateuch where, as in the rest of the Old Testament, it either refers to the genetic descendants of the sons of Noah (Genesis 10:32) or to the relatives of Abraham (Genesis 24:38), the descendants of Abraham or specific families within Israel. The only other use of this word refers to a genetic family of animals. (Genesis 8:19) In other words, mishpachah always refers to the racial family of Adam (except in one passage clearly referring to animals).
So, the context of the Old Testament dictates that the “families of the earth” of Genesis 12:3 could either refer to all the descendants of Adam or Abraham’s descendants, particularly Israel, i.e., a “circle of relatives.” In no case in which this word is used does the Scripture allow for a spiritual or figurative meaning. It is confined to the physical, racial family of Adam.
It is possible that Paul could have also quoted from Genesis 18:18 and 22:18 in which a different Hebrew word is used other than mishpachah:
“Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH SHALL BE BLESSED IN HIM?” (Genesis 18:18)
“And IN THY SEED SHALL ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED; because thou hast obeyed my voice.” (Genesis 22:18)
The word “nations” used in these two passages of promise is the Hebrew word gowy or goy (Strong’s #1471). Strong’s gives a rather ambiguous definition of this term as “a foreign nation hence a Gentile...”
The Biblical context of this word reveals, however, a more specific explanation. For example, the first instances of the use of goy is in Genesis 10 specifically referring to the Adamic sons of Noah: “These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations (#1471): and by these were the nations (#1471) divided in the earth after the flood.” (Genesis 10:32)
“Now faith is the SUBSTANCE of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1)
Therefore, Christians are the very substance and evidence of Israel; the children of Abraham. What is more, the true Judahite of the tribe of Judah is a Christian:
“For he is not a Jew (meaning Judean), which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew (Judean), which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.” (Romans 2:28-29)
Jew: Strong’s Concordance: #2453 Ioudaios (ee‑oo‑ dah’‑yos); from 2448 (in the sense of 2455 as a country); Judaean, i.e. belonging to Jehudah: KJV‑‑ Jew (‑ess), of Judea.
Jew: Strong’s Concordance: #2448 Iouda (ee‑oo‑dah’); of Hebrew origin [3063 or perhaps 3194]; Judah (i.e. Jehudah or Juttah), a part of (or place in) Palestine: KJV‑‑ Judah.
Enough evidence has been offered to prove in every Bible believing person that all True Israelites, including those of the Tribe of Judah are Christians. It goes without saying that those who reject Christ are not Israelites.
Get this definitely fixed in your mind: We believe that the Salvation that is in Christ is as high as heaven, as deep as hell, as wide as the universe. God’s plan has not failed, is not failing now, and never will fail! IT MOST SURELY WAS NOT GOD’S PLAN TO SAVE THE WORLD AND UNITE ALL NATIONS INTO ONE COMMON BROTHERHOOD IN THE PAST 2000 YEARS. If that had been God’s will, it would have been done. But there are more people against Christ today than there were when He was here in the flesh.
The positive truth, the irrefutable facts are that in this age of the Holy Spirit who is our teacher, guide and comforter, God’s plan has been and is to call out of all nati9ons and races the seed of Abraham, the lost and the scattered sheep, the “other sheep” of which Christ said they would be gathered into “one fold.”
In every race; black, red, yellow and brown, there are a few Israelites. The Gospel of Christ accompanied with the power of the Holy Ghost is preached to all races and all nations. The True Israelites respond; the others do not. All Israelites everywhere in the world accept Christ as soon as they hear the Gospel preached.
“And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the certain cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.” (Isaiah 25:7)
Christ clearly said:
“I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the House of Israel.” (Matthew 15:24)
Speaking beyond Palestine He said:
“And 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.” (John 10:16)
The “other sheep” were then and are now the Israelitish seed that is scattered among all nations. Christ said to His Apostles:
“Go not into the way of the Gentiles...but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” (Matthew 10:5-6)
In the past 2000 years God has been gathering out of the nations all True Israelites to form the body of Christ and to reign over the earth with Him as kings, priests and judges in the Kingdom age of world restoration which is dawning very fast. (Revelation 1:6, 1 Corinthians 6:2) “All Israel shall be saved.” (Romans 11:26) God is today rapidly winding up this age and bringing them into His Holy Mountain and making them joyful in his “house of prayer for all people,” (Isaiah 56:7) saying:
“Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.” (Isaiah 56:5)
“And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all the kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name.” (Isaiah 62:2)
Of course, we know that the name of every True Israelite is “Christian” for that name was divinely called upon them.
Called: Strong’s Concordance: #7121 qara’ (kaw‑raw’); a primitive root [rather identical with 7122 through the idea of accosting a person met]; to call out to (i.e. properly, address by name, but used in a wide variety of applications): KJV‑‑ bewray [self], that are bidden, call (for, forthself,, upon), cry (unto), (be) famous, guest, invite, mention, (give) name, preach, (make) proclaim (‑ation), pronounce, publish, read, renowned, say.
Called: Brown-Driver-Briggs’ Definition: #7121 qara’‑ to call, to call out, to recite, to read, to cry out, to proclaim
1) to call, to cry, to utter a loud sound
2) to call unto, to cry (for help), to call (with the name of God)
3) to proclaim
4) to read aloud, to read (to oneself), to read
5) to summon, to invite, to call for, to call and commission, to appoint, to call and to endow
6) to call, to name, to give name to, to call by
1) to call oneself
2) to be called, to be proclaimed, to be read aloud, to be summoned, to be named
c) (Pual) to be called, to be named, to be called out, to be chosen.
Thus we can see that “Called” means a God-given oracle or name to be worn as a title.
“The disciples were called Christians first at Antoioch.” (Acts 11:26)
Yet we must understand that the word Christian was used by pagans in describing those who follows Christ. It is very important to understand this.
Many JudeoChristians believe this title name comes form Christ Himself which God wrought in Christ, when He raised him from the dead,
“and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principally, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: and hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.” (Ephesians 1:20-23)
“And IN THY SEED SHALL ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED; because thou hast obeyed my voice.” (Genesis 22:18)
The word “nations” used in these two passages of promise is the Hebrew word gowy or goy (Strong’s #1471).Strong’s gives a rather ambiguous definition of this term as “a foreign nation hence a Gentile...”
The Biblical context of this word reveals, however, a more specific explanation. For example, the first instances of the use of goy is in Genesis 10 specifically referring to the Adamic sons of Noah:
“These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their NATIONS (#1471): and by these were the NATIONS (#1471) divided in the earth after the flood.” (Genesis 10:32)
Goy also identifies that the Adamic descendants of Abraham would become a “great nation”:
“And I will make of thee (Abram) a great NATION (#1471), and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing...” (Genesis 12:2)
It was even revealed that Isaac’s wife, Rebekah, had “two nations” (#1471) in her womb, Jacob and Esau. (Genesis 25:22-23)
Goy can also be identified with the Adamic descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, that is, Israel: “And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy NATION (#1471). These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.” (Exodus 19:6)
This word can even refer to the early inhabitants of Canaan prior to Israel’s conquest. (The “nations” described in this context are the descendants of Canaan, the cursed son of Ham and grandson of Noah, who was a direct descendant of Adam, thus all Adamic).
“To drive out NATIONS (#1471) from before thee greater and mightier than thou art, to being thee in, to give thee their land for an inheritance, as it is this day.” (Deuteronomy 4:38)
In no case in the Old Testament does the word goy ever refer to a non-Adamic people. Thus, this word translated “nations,” “heathen,” “Gentiles,” or “people” either means the descendants of the Adamic sons of Noah or descendants of Abraham and specifically Israel. (Interestingly, in the Septuagint, which was the Greek translation of the Old Testament Scriptures used in Paul’s day, the word ethnos is used for “nations,” the same as in the New Testament.
This particularly makes it clear that the meaning of “nations” in the Old Testament is also the same in the New Testament “Nations” refers to the Adamic race). It is, therefore, consistent in its contextual meaning with the word mishpachah or “families” of Genesis 12:3.
There is even more light shed on the meaning of the “families” of Genesis 12:3 from another New Testament rendering of this promise to Abraham in Acts 3:25-26. Peter, preaching to an audience of Israelites (Acts 3:13), proclaimed: “Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham. And IN THY SEED SHALL ALL THE KINDREDS OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED. Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.” (Acts 3:25-26)
The word “kindreds” (Strong’s #3965; patria) means “paternal descent...a group of families or a whole race... family, kindred, lineage.” It is derived from pater (Strong’s #3962), which means “father.”
“Derived from pater are the words patria, lineage, clan (indicating descent FROM THE SAME FATHER AND ANCESTRAL PATRIARCH...) (Dictionary of New Testament Theology, Colin Brown, Editor, (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan Publishing House, 1971), p. 616)
Acts 3:25-26 indicates that this promise to Abraham was directed to his family lineage. In other words, the gospel Peter was preaching was directed only to Abraham’s racial family through Isaac and his “seed” who is Israel; the “kindreds of the earth” who were to be “blessed” by “turning away everyone...from his iniquities.”
The “gospel” Paul was writing about in Galatians 3:8 to the Galatian Israelites WAS THE SAME ONE God declared and promised to Abraham. This “gospel” contained the promise that in Abraham and his seed “shall all nations be blessed,” (Galatians 3:8) that is, all the racial family of Adamic Israel specifically, and other non-Israelite descendants of Adam generally. “Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.” (Galatians 4:28)
The “gospel” promise to Abraham, therefore, does not apply to other non-Adamic races. It is limited, by strict Biblical interpretation, to the Adamic race generally and Adamic Israel in particular.
THE GOSPEL WAS PREACHED TO OLD TESTAMENT ISRAEL: Not only was the gospel preached beforehand to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel but also to their offspring, the nation of Israel. Yes, the Scriptures testifies that the same gospel preached by Jesus Christ and His apostles is the very one which was previously preached to the genetic descendants of the Biblical patriarchs.
The Context of Hebrews 4:2-3, 6: The writer of Hebrews addresses Israelites, calling them “brethren” (Hebrews 2:12) and identifying them with their “fathers” (Hebrews 3:9) of the Old Testament. Other Old Testament characters and allusions abound throughout the epistle further linking the readers as Hebrews, the genetic family of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel.
From Hebrews 3:8 through 4:11, the audience of this letter was exhorted to believe “the gospel” in contrast to their ancestor who had THE SAME GOSPEL preached to them. For example:
“FOR UNTO US WAS THE GOSPEL PREACHED, AS WELL AS UNTO THEM (Meaning the ancient Israelites): but the word preached id not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished form the foundation of the world. Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, AND THEY TO WHOM IT WAS FIRST PREACHED entered not in because of unbelief..” (Hebrews 4:2-3, 6)
These verses clearly indicate that the gospel that was preached to the New Testament readers of Hebrews, centered in Christ (Hebrews 3:6, 14; 4:14-16), WAS THE SAME ONE preached to Israel after they exited Egypt under Moses.
They did not believe this gospel but hardened their hearts (Hebrews 3:8) and provoked and grieved the Lord with the result that He would not let that generation enter the promised land. (Hebrews 3:9-11) So, that generation died “in the wilderness” (Hebrews 3:17) because they did not believe the gospel. According to the above passage, this is THE SAME GOSPEL preached to their descendants in the New Testament in Jesus Christ.
Context of Psalm 95:11: What does the Old Testament context reveal regarding whom this gospel was given to and what this gospel was about? Hebrews 4?3 is borrowed from Psalm 95:11:
“Unto whom I swear in my wrath that they (the Jews) should not enter into my rest.”
Psalm 95 was a summons to Israel to worship and believe their God, indicated by the phrase “we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.” (Psalm 95:7) Further, they are identified in relationship to the “fathers” (Psalm 95:9) and with their ancestors under Moses who rebelled against the Lord. (Psalm 95:8-11)
This rebellion specifically centered around the murmuring and unbelief of the congregation of Israel in regard to the Lord.’s promise to cause them to inherit the land of Canaan. (This promise was one of many unconditionally given to Abraham (including the one previously discussed in Genesis 12:3) and to Isaac and Jacob and their offspring.
This promise to inherit the land of Canaan (Genesis 12:1, 7; 13:15; 15:18; 17:8; 24:7; 26:3; Hebrews 11:9) was also a part of this gospel according to this Hebrews 4:3 text) The story is told in Numbers 14 concluding with the Lord’s declaration that that generation would all die in the “wilderness” instead of inheriting the promised land. Obviously, Psalm 95 and Numbers 14 and Hebrews 4 speak of the same people to whom the gospel was given.
What was that gospel which was given to Israel under Moses? First, it was the promise form the Lord that Israel would inherit the land of Canaan promised to Abraham:
“Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the Lord swear unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them.” (Deuteronomy 1:8)
The gospel included a promised “land” a place where Abraham’s seed could be nourished, sustained, protected and free. It was a land where they could prosper under the Lordship of their Redeemer God. It was there that they could continue to be fruitful and multiply, take dominion, become a great nation and a company of nations, and possess the gates of their enemies as also promised to Abraham and his seed.
These promises then were also included in the message of the gospel to the Israelite people in Moses’ time:
“O YE SEED OF ABRAHAM HIS servant, ye CHILDREN OF JACOB HIS CHOSEN. He is the Lord our god: his judgments are in all the earth. He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations. WHICH COVENANT HE MADE WITH ABRAHAM, and HIS OATH UNTO ISAAC; And confirmed the same UNTO JACOB FOR A LAW, AND TO ISRAEL FOR AN EVERLASTING COVENANT: Saying, Unto thee will I GIVE THE LAND OF CANAAN, the lot of your inheritance...” (Psalm 105:6-11)
Confirmation to Israel of the “covenant” God “made with Abraham” their father was the actual physical possession of “the land of Canaan.” The land was a visible sign of this covenant and the many promises therein.
THIS COVENANT WAS THE GOSPEL PREACHED TO ABRAHAM, and just as it was preached unto Abraham, so the same gospel promises were proclaimed to Abraham’s seed, Israel, in the Mosaic covenant. They are linked and interdependent.
“Keep therefore the words of this covenant (the Mosaic covenant), and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do. Ye stand this day all of you before the Lord your God; your captains of your tribes, your elders, and your officers, with ALL THE MEN OF ISRAEL, You little ones, you wives, and thy (Adamic) stranger that is in thy camp, from the hewer of thy wood unto the drawer of thy water: That thou shouldest enter into covenant with the Lord thy God, and into his oath, which the Lord thy God maketh with thee this day: That he may establish thee to day for a people unto himself, and that he may be unto thee a God, as he hath said unto thee, and AS HE HATH SWORN UNTO THY FATHERS, TO ABRAHAM, TO ISAAC, AND TO JACOB.” (Deuteronomy 29:9-13
There are different Hebrew words for “stronger” which is ambiguous as to an exact racial definition in comparison to Israel. We know that some inhabitants of Egypt came out of Egypt with Israel at the exodus. Egyptians were basically of Adamic origin, at least in the first six dynasties of Egypt. Taken in the overall context of Scripture, other Adamic people still could partake of the covenant as long as they agreed to be obedient to the terms of the covenant. However, there is no Biblical justification for “strangers” here being of another non-Adamic race).
Now the same gospel promises given to Abraham by covenant, and to Israel in the Mosaic covenant, are the very ones preached to Israel in the New Covenant in Jesus Christ. The gospel has been THE SAME GOSPEL TO THE SAME RACIAL FAMILY from Adam to Abraham to Moses to Adamic Israelites in Christ; to Israel and Israel’s racial family alone.
The two New Testament passages discussed here from their own context, as well as the context of their Old Testament counterparts, that the “gospel” has its meaning and application in the promises to Abraham and his seed, Israel.
To simply spiritualize the gospel of the New Testament applying it to all non-Adamic races, is to remove it from the historical and racial context of Scripture. However, when the gospel is interpreted within the historical and racial context of the Bible, the meaning and application of it are without strain or contradiction. This gospel becomes the exclusive gospel of the Bible for the elect family of God who are Adamic Israelites in Christ Jesus.
The Biblical Gospel As Prophetic Fulfillment: Not only have we seen the historical roots of the gospel of the New Testament as preached to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Israel, but now we come to the texts of the gospel accounts that testify that the gospel proclaimed by Christ and His disciples has its foundation in Old Testament prophecy.
We will examine the instances where the word “gospel,” as used in Matthew, Mark, Luke and Acts, also have their reference as a fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. This should answer the question: “What, and to whom, was the Gospel that Christ preached in the view of Old Testament prophecy?”
The Gospel In Matthew: The Context of Matthew 11:5: “The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.”
The surrounding context indicates that Jesus had just commanded His disciples to “go...to the lost sheep of the HOUSE OF ISRAEL” (Matthew 10:6) in order to “preach...the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 10:7) At the end of His instructions to them, Christ encountered two disciples of John the Baptist with a question from John as to whether Jesus was the one “that should come” or not. (Matthew 11:2-3) The essence of Jesus’ answer to him are His words recorded in Matthew 11:5 in light of His mission to the house of Israel.
The wider preceding context of Matthew 11:5 shows first that Christ’s birth was a fulfillment of prophecy of Micah 5:2 that one would come out of Judah as “a Governor, that shall rule MY PEOPLE ISRAEL.” (Matthew 2:6)
Second, Jesus’ ministry was preceded by John the Baptist who was sent to prepare the way for the beginning of Jesus’ Messiahship, preaching repentance to those in “JerUSAlem, and all Judea, and all the region round about Jordan.” (Matthew 3:5) thus, John’s message was for those of Israel in Judea.
Third, Jesus began His ministry preaching REPENTANCE and announcing “the kingdom of Heaven is at hand” (Matthew 4:17) to the “Gentiles” living in “the land of Zebulun, and the land of Naphtali...Galilee of the Gentiles.” (Matthew 4:15) this was a fulfillment of Isaiah 9:1-2. In context, these words identified the HOUSE OF ISRAEL (Ephraim) as the “Gentiles” or “nations” who were under punishment for their disobedience. The house of Israel (the northern kingdom in the land area known also as Samari in Jesus’ time) was dispersed among the Adamic “nations” beginning with their captivity by Assyria, which started in 745 B.C. The “Gentiles” were the house of Israel, located in part, in “the land of Zebulun, and the land of Naphtali.” It was “the Gentiles” of the dispersed house of Israel to whom Jesus preached “the kingdom of heaven.”
Thus, Christs’ birth, purpose, ministry and preaching of the gospel preceding Matthew 11:5 was exclusively related to Israel. Further, the context after Matthew 11:5 reveals the exclusive nature of Jesus’ ministry and preaching when He said, “...I am not sent but uno the lost sheep of the house of ISRAEL.” (Matthew 15:24) This corresponds with the healing ministry of Jesus in which the people who witnessed it “glorified THE GOD OF ISRAEL.” “Insomuch that the multitudes wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and THEY GLORIFIED THE GOD OF ISRAEL.” (Matthew 15:31)
All Israelites are being gathered into Great Britain and the United States (or were until Jewish traitors took control of the immigration department) which are the ruling Ephraim and Manasseh nations over all the tribes of Israel. The Israelites of the world are becoming nationalized citizens of these countries or their own governments are coming under our protection and into an alliance with us. NOT BY THE UNO, but as a United Israel Fellowship. As soon as all the Israelites are gathered out of all the nations, then the age of Grace will end and the Kingdom of Christ; Christian Israel will rule the world in righteousness.
The Israelite nations are as follows:
Ephraim United States
Manasseh Great Britain
While the United States is the latter day House of Israel. Smaller nations made up of true Israelites are Norway, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Saxon Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Ethiopia, and possibly Japan, for some believe that the Japanese are the Island nation of Israelites gathered out of China and the far East.
God meant for America to invade and occupy Japan in order that these intelligent, aggressive people would be set free form Shintoism and all kinds of superstition and would have a chance to accept Christ and find their place in Israel. (We don’t fully subscribe to this theory, but have placed it here for your review and consideration)
All those nations we have named will fight side by side with in and under United Israel in the final Gog and Magog (World War III) war. If we understand the Bible correctly; Russia, China, India, turkey, the Mohammedan world and those of Ishmael and Esau who say they are Jews, and the European nations that we have not named will be the combined forces of Gog and Magog against American/British Israel in World War III as described in Ezekiel 38 and 39. The invaders as described in these chapters will strike at America (which is the only larger land of Israel) flying across the North Pole and will be defeated by the United Israel in the Rocky Mountains of Canada and the United States.
We believe that we are in the end time; for events are moving very swiftly in coming up this age of Grace. The Kingdom of Christ will come into full power and will rule the world very soon, and the ruling nation will be United Israel which will be none other than Great Britain and the United States which are GOD’S OWN CHOSEN NATIONS. The time has come for us to know our own identity and to also identify our enemies.
We find no mention of the word “Jew” or “Jews” in Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth or First and Second Samuel. One thing sure is that THE JEWS ARE NOT HEBREWS, NOT ISRAELITES AND NOT OF THE SEMITIC RACE. You can not give us one verse of scriptures that says or even indicates that the Jews are God’s chosen people.
As nearly as we can define the name “Jew” from the Hebrew language it means “the funny users of the hands,” a nick-name imposed upon the people who shrug their shoulders and make funny gestures with the hands. The root form of the Hebrew word is “YAD” pronounced “YAWD” meaning the open hand in gestures of direction, also meaning broad-handed, closed hand, and has a variety of meanings; like the Communist salute of the clinched fist.
From this root word comes the name “Jew” and also “Yiddish.” You must not mix up and confuse the “Jews” with Shem; the Semitic race and the Hebrews and Israelites of the Old Testament for they are in no way related. The Kingdom of Judah and the Judahites were God’s people and of the Semitic race but they were not Jews.
The last king of Judah and Jerusalem was Zedekiah. Under his reign the nation went into the final Babylonian captivity in 586 B.C. It is true that there was a return from Babylon and an attempt was made to re-establish the Kingdom of Judah in Palestine but it never was truly established. There was no high priesthood of Aaron and Levi and no real king of Judah on the throne in or after the return from Babylon.
Those who returned were all known by the nick-name of “Jews” and the word “Jew” as falsely called upon all the people of Jerusalem and throughout Palestine. There were several “lost sheep” of the house of Israel; that is, true Israelites of the twelve tribes of Israel, scattered among the Jews, and it is unfortunate that they were included with those imposters called “Jews” for the majority of those people who returned from Babylon did not use the Holy Scriptures (Old Testament) at all.
Their religion was a heathenish voodooism. They took a few books such as the Psalms and of the Bible and arranged each verse under some kind of a charm or good luck sign. Everything in the religion of the Jews was a corruption of the scriptures and the darkest heathenism that has ever existed in the world
It was all magic. It was the devil’s counterfeit of the true kingdoms of Israel and Judah and of the Bible. To show you something of the error of their system, they set up twelve tables, namely: spirits of the air; spirits of fire; spirits of water; spirits of earth; spirits of Saturn; spirits of Jupiter; spirits of Mars; spirits of the sun; spirits of Venus, spirits of Mercury. The eleventh table was supposed to give luck and fortune and its spirits giver up the treasures of the sea while the 12th table or seal of spirits was supposed to compel all spirits to appear immediately and to serve in all things.
Each table consisted of Hebrew letters, circles and markings; a corruption and magical mesmerization of the Bible. THE CROWNED SERPENT with its magical hieroglyphics such as the hooked cross (the Swastika) and the crescent were their highest emblems. They also adopted many seals too numerous to describe. One of the main ones was called “Antquelis” or seal of character for coercion and obedience.
In the center of this seal was the serpent. The breastplate of Aaron and the garments of the high priesthood were all corrupted under various seals. Seals and images were made to be worn on the writs and on the forehead. Those worn on the forehead were called phylacteries, and their substitutes for the priesthood were men called “Rabbis.” Jesus said:
“But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, and love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, and greetings is the market, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.” (Matthew 23:5-8)
Indicating that the Jewish rabbis were not the disciples brethren.
NEARLY EVERY FALSE DOCTRINE AND SUPERSTITION AND MAGICAL VOODOOISM IN THE WORLD CAN BE TRACED DIRECTLY TO THE JEWS. There is not one verse of scripture in God’s word that has not been corrupted by them. As an example here is one way that they say the first Psalm may be applied:
“When a woman is pregnant and fears a premature delivery, or a dangerous confinement, she should write or cause to be written, on a piece of parchment prepared from the pure skin of a deer, the three first verses of the above Psalm, together with the hidden holy name and appropriate prayer contained therein, and place it in a small bag made expressly for that purpose, and suspend it by a string about the neck, so that the bag will rest against her naked body.”
If we had time or space we would give you every Psalm as they have corrupted it. Let us ask you this question. Did not Christ know what He was talking about when He said to the Jews:
“Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For lying aside the commandments of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups; and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Full well reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition...making the word of God of one effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.” (Mark 7:7-9, 13)
The Jews in the days of Christ did not speak Hebrew; their language was a mixture of many heathen languages but was in the main the language of Ashdod; half heathen Ashdon and the other half a mixture of heathen languages:
“Half in the speech of Ashdod...according to the language of each people.” (Nehemiah 13:24)
TODAY; GET THIS STRAIGHT IN YOUR MIND, TODAY THE JEWS DO NOT USE THE OLD TESTAMENT, BUT THEY USE THE TALMUD. THEY DO NO SPEAK HEBREW; THEY SPEAK YIDDISH. There is no more connection between Yiddish and Hebrew than there is between Chinese and English. The Jewish religious book called the Talmud is the most immoral and corrupt book in the world. We have said before that there were a few True Israelites scattered among the Jews and of course true Israelites believed the Bible and every one of them; that is, every True Hebrew, every True Semitic, every True Israelite, every True Judahite of the real tribe of Judah believed the Holy Scriptures (writings of Moses) and every one of them accepted Christ. He said:
“For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words.” (John 5:46-47)
Remember this, and never, never, never forget it; John the Baptist the forerunner of Christ did not go up to Jerusalem and preach to the Jewish puppet king and the false and spurious Jewish rabbis and priesthood. He did not bother with the Denomination and organized religions of the Jews, such as the Pharisees (fundamentalists), Sadducees (Modernists), Essenes (metaphysical), Herodians (religious-political), Zealots, Assassins and others. But
“In those days came John the Baptists, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 3:1-2)
And as we read on many
“Were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.”
But listen now,
“But when he (John the Baptist) saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?” (Matthew 3:6-7)
Remember that the Pharisees were the largest and most fundamentally religious of all denominations among the Jews and the Sadducees were the most modern and highly educated among the, and JOHN THE BAPTIST CALLED THEM NOT GOD’S PEOPLE , BUT “A GENERATION OF VIPERS.” The dirty old Herod who was king on the false Jewish throne arrested, imprisoned and then beheaded John the Baptist:
“And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison. And his head was brought in a charger, and given tot he damsel: and she brought it to her mother. And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried it, and went and told Jesus.” (Matthew 14:10-12)
Please understand that when the Jews returned from Babylon they set up a false kingdom and they put on the throne the Idumean/Edomite family of the Herods. There were six of them, namely: Herod the Great, Herod Antipas, Herod Philip I, Herod Phillip II, Herod Agrippa I, and Herod Agrippa II. This Idumean/Edomite family of the Herods were not Israelites. They were not of the tribe of Judah but they were the descendants of Ishamael and Esau.
Paul says that all those who claimed to be Jews in the religious set up on Jerusalem were Idumeans or Esauites or Ishmaelites and he points out that the only True Judahites are the Christians. Here it is:
“For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a free woman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not: break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband (this is speaking of the House of Israel and the House of Judah. Israel had no husband at this time because God had put them away). Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise. But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now. Nevertheless what saith the scriptures? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman. So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.” (Galatians 4:22-31)
We are the sons of Isaac (free) Saxons.
The prophet Obadiah cries:
“How are the tings of Esau searched out: how are his hidden things sought up.”
And then he says:
“Shall I not in that day, saith the Lord, even destroy the wise men out of Edom, and understanding out of the mount of Esau? And thy mighty men, O Teman, shall be dismayed, to the end that every one of the mount of Esau may be cut off by slaughters.” (Obadiah 8:9)
And he also tells us:
“They shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been...the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle a fire in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the Lord hath spoken it.” (Obadiah 16:18)
In spite of these plain facts of scripture we still have many blind and deceived Judeo-Christian preachers telling us that the Jews are God’s chosen people, and that Christ will come to Jerusalem, set up a kingdom and through these Jews rule the world. The facts are that Christ said to the Jews:
“If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? Even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of you father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.” (John 8:42-45)
Again Christ said unto them:
“Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which kill the prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.” (Matthew 23:31-36)
In this scripture we see that Christ accused the Jews of murdering the prophets and righteous people of God all the way from Abel down through history, and Paul says,
“The Jews who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men.” (1 Thessalonians 2:14-15)
The Apostle John also tells us just who these people are that claim to be Jews, saying,
“I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN.” (Revelation 2:9)
“Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.” (Revelation 3:9)
The Jews are not a race, as so many Jews and Judeo-Christians claim, can never be saved. The Jew can be saved only by accepting Christ as his savior and by coming out of and forever forsaking and denouncing the false Jewish claims, for the Jews are not Judahites of the Tribe of Israel. They are not Semitic, not Hebrew and not Israelites. They are a counterfeit race and a counterfeit religion and are most certainly anti-Christ. We dare not uphold or defend them or wish them well:
“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an anti-Christ. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in this doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: for he that bideth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” (2 John 7:11)
Stephen preached to the Jews declaring to them that Moses was “exceeding fair” (Acts 7:20); that is, very white. He traces the people of God down through history and he denounced the Jewish star and images saying to them:
“Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Rempham, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon...Ye stiff-necked and uncircumcized in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? And they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One: of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers: who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it.” (Acts 7:43, 51-53)
Well, what did they do? How did they respond to Stephen’s sermon:
“When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth. But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, and said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the son of man standing on the right hand of God. Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, and cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man’s feet, whose name was Saul. And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. And he kneeled down and cried with a loud voice, Lord lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.” (Acts 7:54-60)
Now listen! John the Baptist, Christ, the Apostle John and the Apostle Paul did not call the Jews serpents and vipers, children of the devil, contrary to all men, anti-Christ and the synagogue of Satan, just to be mean or to curse them. No, sir! But they made those statements because they are facts and are the truth of the scriptures. Remember what Stephen said:
“Ye stiff-necked and uncircumcized in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your father did, so do ye.” (Acts 7:51)
Now you see THOSE JEWS WERE NOT REAL JUDAHITES OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH AT ALL. They did not have the circumcision of the heart:
“For his not a Jew, which is one outwardly: neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: but he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the latter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.” (Romans 2:28-29)
Jew: As used in this verse: Strong’s Concordance: #2453 Ioudaios (ee‑oo‑dah’‑yos); from 2448 (in the sense of 2455 as a country); Judaean, i.e. belonging to Jehudah: KJV‑‑ Jew (‑ess), of Judea.
The person with a dark skin, hooked-nose and funny user of the hands is not a real descendant of the Tribe of Judah, but is marked by the curse of Cain:
“The shew of their countence doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul; for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.” (Isaiah 3:9)
