In my book called “Proof America is Regathered Israel” there is brief sketch for you some of the Bible’s evidence that the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and kindred people are the living descendants of the Israel of the Bible. This evidence is in the form of many Bible prophecies of Israel’s future, which has been accurately fulfilled by these nations and by no others. If the people who have actually done all the thins which Yahweh said Israel would do, and who have received the exact blessings which Yahweh said He would give to Israel, if they are not Israel, how could Yahweh be so greatly mistaken? No, Yahweh was not mistaken, He knew what He would do and for whom He would do it. By making good all of His prophecies and promises, He has identified these nations as Israel.

There are some people that will not believe Yahweh and will not accept His identification of these countries as Israel. In fact, there are always some who will demand to know what other historians of the time, in what books, chapters and verses record their migrations into northern and western Europe and the British Isles? They are only a few of the skeptics who ask this and to these skeptics the answer is yes, various historians of those centuries have traced many steps of this migration. But these skeptics are too lazy to do any research for themselves; they get one book by some ignorant person and will stand on that one work for the rest of their ignorant lives.
What we propose to do for you now is to trace this migration historically; remember, within the time limits which must necessarily be fixed on such a lesson as this, we can only hit the high spots. You know how large a library can be filled with history books, so we can’t quote them all verbatim.
The entire Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is written about and addressed to a race whom Yahweh calls My people Israel, they are not now nor have they ever been Jews. All of Yahweh’s promises in the bible, were made to Israel. Either Yahweh has failed miserably to carry out His promises, or else Israel, His people, are till to be found in the world today, receiving the blessings which Yahweh promised to them. If they are here, who are they and where have they been residing?
From the time of the exodus from Egypt, the people Israel were organized into a nation of 13 tribes, just like the United States of 50 states. After they entered the promised land of Palestine, Israel continued as this 13 tribed nation until the death of Solomon. Then they split into two nations, ten and ½ of the northern tribes keeping the name Israel, while the two and ½ of the southern tribes took the name Judah; the tribe of Levi was divided into two part, with one half going with the northern tribes and one half going with the southern half.
The northern kingdom Israel, was later conquered by Assyria and by 715 B.C., they were all deported and resettled and around the southern end of the Caspian Sea. By 713 B.C., the Assyrians also invaded Judah and deported a large part of this population to the same Caspian Sea area.
The First and Second Invasions
Among the several prophecies foretelling the Captivity of Israel, two notable prophecies demand special attention. They were made by Hosea and Isaiah.
(a) The First was uttered on the birth of his firstborn son Jezreel:
“And the Lord said unto him, Call his name Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will avenge the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu, and WILL CAUSE TO CEASE THE KINGDOM OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL.” (Hosea 1:4)
(b) The Second was uttered on the birth of his only daughter Lo-Ruhamah:
“And God said unto him, Call her name Lo-Ruhamah; for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel; but I WILL UTTERLY TAKE THEM AWAY.” (Hosea 1:6)
From this time on, Bible history does not trace the further progress of Israel, except that the Apocrypha, 2 Esdras 13:40-45 traces their movements as far as ar-Sareth, valley of the Sereth river, which still bears that name in Romania. For many centuries, after the nation Israel disappeared from Bible history, Bible prophecy still promises the nation a magnificent future, recognizing their continued existence. Not only the Old Testament, but all the books in the New Testament are addressed to Israel. Since Israel’s Assyrian captivity, under what camouflage have they been hidden from the eyes of the world during these intervening centuries?
However, there will be time enough to show you that the historians have traced this migration from Israel’s old Palestinian home into the European homes as the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic and Scandinavian peoples. Not under their old names of course, but that also is the fulfillment of Yahweh’s prophecy that He would call His servants by another name.
As you are being shown Israel today can certainly be identified as the group of nations known as Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian and Teutonic. How did they forget their old name, move to new lands and take on new names? We can trace this process through the Bible, as well as through history.
The entire 43rd chapter of Isaiah, written after Israel had disappeared into the Assyrian deportation, deals with redeemed Israel. It opens,
“But now thus saith Yahweh that created thee, O Jacob and he that formed thee O Israel, fear not, for I have redeemed thee; I have called thee by my name, thou art mine.”
In Isaiah 43:18, Yahweh commands forgetfulness of their past.
“REMEMBER YE NOT THE FORMER THINGS, NEITHER CONSIDER THE THINGS OF OLD.”
Isaiah 43:8 tells us:
“Bring forth the bind people that have eyes and the deaf that have ears.”
Therefore in Romans 11:25 Paul tells us:
“Blindness in part has happened to Israel.”
They have forgotten their history and identity.
Yahweh also commanded them to take a new name, instead of Israel. In Isaiah 62:2 Yahweh says to them:
“Thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of Yahweh shall name.”
As the Bible many times declares, Yahweh’s people Israel are His servants, so in Isaiah chapter 65 Yahweh warns the Jews:
“Ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen for Yahweh shall slay thee and call his children by another name.” (Isaiah 65:15)
In Genesis 21:12 Yahweh told Abraham,
“Isaac shall thy seed be called.”
We say I-saac, but the Hebrew accents the last syllable. Perhaps this is why we have been called Isaac’s sons, Saxons. In Numbers 6:27 Yahweh said:
“They shall put MY NAME upon the children of ISRAEL; and I will bless them.”
Accordingly the name of Christ, Christians has been put on us and Yahweh has blessed us richly. In Deuteronomy 28:10 Yahweh added:
“And all the people of the earth shall see thou art called by the name of Yahweh and they shall be afraid of thee.”
This was true for centuries, until Christ hating traitors in our own government have made us despised in the world.
While all of the 13 tribes were living in Palestine and King David was on the throne over them, Yahweh promised in 2 Samuel 7:10 and 1 Chronicles 17:9;
“I will appoint a place for my people Israel and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them anymore as before time.”
This looked into the future, it could not be Palestine, both because they were already there and because they did have to move from there. Hence, it prophesied their migration to new lands given to them by Yahweh, these were left empty, awaiting their arrival, according to the promise in Deuteronomy 32:8;
“When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.”
Moses knew that Israel would reject God as their King and choose a human one in Deuteronomy 17:14-15;
“When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me.”
And would not stay long in their land (Palestine):
“I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed.” (Deuteronomy 4:26)
Migrating to their new home, forgetful of their history, their name and their religion, they were the lost tribes of Israel. Hence in Jeremiah 50:6 Yahweh says:
“My people hath been lost sheep; their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains; they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their resting place.”
In Ezekiel chapter 34 Yahweh promises, “So I will seek out my sheep and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.”
In fulfillment of this Yahshua declared in Matthew 15:24;
“I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
He then commanded His apostles,
“Go not into the way of the gentiles or into any city of the Samaritans.” (Matthew 10:5)
Then He said in Matthew 10:23;
“Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel till the Son of man be come.”
Obviously this did not refer to Palestine, as they could have covered all of its cities in three weeks, Yahshua spoke of Israel in its new lands.
In new lands, under a new name, speaking a new language, Israel was hidden, camouflaged until the time would come to reveal them. However, they were not hidden from Yahweh who said in Hosea 5:3;
“I know Ephraim and Israel is not hid from me, but you have been camouflaged.”
Psalm 83:1-4 says;
“Keep not thou silence, O Yahweh; hold not thy peace and be not still O Yahweh. For lo, Thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty council against thy people and consulted against THY HIDDEN ONES. They have said, Come, let us cut them off from being a nation.”
So the anti-Christ internationalist traitors have conspired to cut us off from being a nation, to make us a conquered province of the United Nations world government. In Isaiah 61:9 Yahweh says of us,
“And their seed shall be known among the nations and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which Yahweh hath blessed.”
So, today all the rest of the world say were the HAVE nations, richly blessed by Yahweh, while they are the HAVE NOT nations.
Surely you now know that the Bible identifies Israel and ONLY Israel, as Yahweh’s servants. Knowing full well that some of the Judeo-Christian preachers falsely say that God does not have a Chosen People.
When will this camouflage be removed? Isaiah chapter 25 opens with Yahweh’s promise of protection for us while He destroys the pagan United Nations and removes our camouflage. Ferrer Fenton’s modern English Translation of the Bible is the clearest on this.
“Then Yahweh will remove on this hill veiling the tribesmen and the covering that covers it from all the heathen.”
It will have served its purpose.
Meanwhile, if we would know our identity, read Isaiah 51:1-2:
“Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek Yahweh: look unto the rock whence ye were hewn and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged. LOOK UNTO ABRAHAM YOUR FATHER AND UNTO SARAH THAT BORE YOU.”
You who follow after righteousness and seek Yahweh, LOOK TO YOUR ANCESTRY, YOUR RACIAL IDENTITY AS YAHWEH’S PEOPLE ISRAEL.
For we have heard some sermons by some Judeo-Christian preachers, which would have you believe that the Blacks, Jews, Mexicans and all the other races are God’s Chosen people; who were crying out that there is no Chosen Race, or People.
This is a damnable, and provable lie. There is a Chosen Race and People in the Scriptures. The following very clearly shows this, and there are many more that I could have listed, but these should suffice.
“For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: THE LORD THY GOD HATH CHOSEN THEE TO BE A SPECIAL PEOPLE UNTO HIMSELF, ABOVE ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. The LORD DID NOT SET HIS LOVE UPON YOU, NOR CHOOSE YOU, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: BUT BECAUSE THE LORD LOVED YOU, and BECAUSE HE WOULD KEEP THE OATH WHICH HE HAD SWORN UNTO YOUR FATHERS...” (Deuteronomy 7:6-8; 14:2; Isaiah 41:9; 43:1, 10-20; 44:23; 48:10; 49:3; Haggai 2:23)
MY PEOPLE ISRAEL:
“Now the LORD had told Samuel in his ear a day before Saul came, saying, To morrow about this time I will send thee a man out of the land of Benjamin, and thou shalt anoint him to be captain OVER MY PEOPLE ISRAEL, THAT HE MAY SAVE MY PEOPLE out of the hand of the Philistines: for I HAVE LOOKED UPON MY PEOPLE, because their cry is come unto me. And when Samuel saw Saul, the LORD said unto him, BEHOLD THE MAN WHOM I SPAKE TO THEE OF THIS SAME SHALL REIGN OVER MY PEOPLE.” (Exodus 7:4; 1 Samuel 9:15-17; 2 Samuel 3:18; 5:2; 7:7; 7:10-11; 1 Kings 6:13; 8:16; 14:7; 16:2; 1 Chronicles 11:2; 17:7; 17:9-10; 2 Chronicles 6:5-6; Jeremiah 7:12; 12:14; 23:13; 30:3; Ezekiel 14:9; 25:14; 36:12; 9:7; Daniel 9:20; Amos 7:8; 7:15; Matthew 2:6)
“I HAVE MADE A COVENANT WITH MY CHOSEN, I have sworn unto David my servant.” (Psalm 89:3; Isaiah 43:20; 65:15)
I HAVE CHOSEN:
“BUT THOU, ISRAEL, ART MY SERVANT, JACOB WHOM I HAVE CHOSEN, THE SEED OF ABRAHAM MY FRIEND. Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, THOU ART MY SERVANT I HAVE CHOSEN THEE, and not cast thee away. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. FEAR NOT, THOU WORM JACOB, AND YE MEN OF ISRAEL; I WILL HELP THEE, SAITH THE LORD, AND THY REDEEMER, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL.” (Isaiah 41:8‑14; 43:10; 44:1-2; John 13:18)
THOU ART MY SERVANT:
“Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, THOU ART MY SERVANT I HAVE CHOSEN THEE, and not cast thee away.” (Isaiah 41:9; 44:21; 49:3)
“REMEMBER THESE, O JACOB AND ISRAEL; FOR THOU ART MY SERVANT: I HAVE FORMED THEE; THOU ART MY SERVANT; O ISRAEL, THOU SHALT NOT BE FORGOTTEN OF ME. I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I HAVE REDEEMED THEE. Sing, O ye heavens; for the LORD hath done it: shout, ye lower parts of the earth: break forth into singing, ye mountains, O forest, and every tree therein: for THE LORD HATH REDEEMED JACOB, AND GLORIFIED HIMSELF IN ISRAEL. THUS SAITH THE LORD, THY REDEEMER, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself.” (Isaiah 44:21-24)
HIS CHOSEN ONES:
“O YE SEED OF ISRAEL HIS SERVANT, YE CHILDREN OF JACOB, HIS CHOSEN ONES.”. (1 Chronicles 16:13; Psalms 105:6; 135:4; Isaiah 41:8; 44:1; Acts 9:15)
THE PEOPLE WHOM GOD HAS CHOSEN FOR HIS INHERITANCE:
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and THE PEOPLE WHOM HE HATH CHOSEN FOR HIS OWN INHERITANCE.” (Psalm 33:12)
I HAVE CALLED THEE BY THY NAME; THOU ART MINE:
“But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine...For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.” (Isaiah 43:1, 34)
GOD CHOSE ABRAHAM ALONE:
“Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the Lord: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged. Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: FOR I CALLED HIM (Abraham) ALONE, and blessed him, and increased him.” (Isaiah 51:1-2)
The migration of the Israelites covered about 12 centuries, during which time they were mentioned by various historians, writing in different languages, during different centuries so therefore they are mentioned under different names. Even today, if you were to read a London newspaper, a Paris newspaper said that in that year France was invaded by the Germans. The French newspaper said that the invasion was by Les Allermans and the German newspaper said that the invasion was by der Deutsch.
Yet all three would be talking about the same people and the same invasion. We must not be surprised to find the Israelites were given different names in the Assyrian, Greek and Latin languages. Even in the same language names change from century to century, just as today we never speak of Bohemia, as it was called a century ago, but only of Czechoslovakia; nor do we speak of Constantinople because its name was changed to Istambul.
Remember the original 13 tribes of Israel; yes that is right 13 tribes, for when Jacob/Israel adopted the two sons of Joseph that made the number of tribes 13; broke up into two nations upon the death of King Solomon, about 975 B.C. The northern 2/3rds of the land, containing the 10 ½ tribes, while the southern 2 ½ tribes, consisting of Judah, Benjamin and ½ the tribe of the Levites, took the name of Judah after the royal tribe. From that time on, they kept their separate existence until they were finally merged into a vast migration, as we will see.
Most of the kings of Israel were distinguished more for their wickedness than for any ability. However Omri, who reigned from 885 B.C. to 874 B.C., was a vigorous and able king. Although as wicked as the others his reign was considered, among the other nations of western Asia, as the foundation upon which the national identity thereafter rested. The Language of that day spoke of a family, a tribe, or even a whole nation as a house or household.
If you have read your Bible much, you must surely remember Yahweh’s many references to the house of Israel of the kingdom of Judah. The phrase was also used in those days to refer to a nation as the house of a great king who ruled it.
Professor Andre Parrot, the world famous French archaeologist has said, “How can we understand the Bible unless, we see it in its proper chronological, historical and geographical settings?” Archaeology not only confirms but also illuminates the historical situations out of which the Old Testament and the gospels grew. We believe you will be interested in seeing how modern they were centuries before the Christian era, and how fitting the title, “Nothing New Under the Sun.”
It was Solomon who said in Ecclesiastes 1:9:
“Whatever has been is that which will be; And whatsoever has been done is that which will be done. And there is nothing new under the sun. I there a thing of which it is said, Lo, this is new? It was already in existence in the ages which were before us.”
Abraham was born in Ur of the Chaldees and lived there until he was about 50 years old. Then with his father Terah, his wife Sarah and his nephew Lot, they moved to Haran and remained there until Terah died. Yahweh said to Abram in Genesis 12:1-4;
“Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will show thee; And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great...And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed.”
Because we believe the United States is one of the great nations promised to Abraham’s seed, this become our history. Just at the time the higher critics had bout convinced everybody that Abraham was just a legendary figure, the archaeologists began proving the Bible to be true. Thousands of our books have become worthless and ancient history had to be rewritten.
The earliest history begins in Mesopotamia, a Greek word meaning the land between the rivers. The Euphrates river was on the west and the Tigris river on the east, in what is now called Iraq. This country, from time immemorial, had two major political divisions. One of these divisions was Assyria, occupying the northern part with Babylon as its capital.
The southern part of Babylonia, which touched the Persian Gulf, was also known at different periods of its history as Sumer, Shinar and Chaldea. One of the oldest cities in this southern part of Babylonia is Ur. It is located 150 miles from Babylon and in the zenith of its history, was a seaport at the mouth of the Euphrates river, where it emptied into the Persian Gulf. Ur is now 130 miles inland and for many centuries the river has been ten miles to the east, but the piers and docks are still there.
Before 1919 little was known about Ur. Mr. J.E. Taylor, the British consul at Basra, was the first to dig there and he brought to light enough inscriptions to convince the skeptical that the great mound covered the Biblical Ur of the Chaldees. In 1922 Dr. C.I. Wooley, field director for the joint expedition of the British museum and the University of Pennsylvania museums took up the work at Ur. He worked for twelve seasons, during the four or five months when the weather permitted, with 200 workmen under him.
Dr. Wooley discovered that Chaldea, at that time, was a rich agricultural district. Ur was a manufacturing city of busy looms, factories and shops where skillful artisans produced a wide variety of clothing, household articles, metal utensils, jewelry and numerous musical instruments, harps, lyres, flutes, etc. At that time music was regarded as a health and life giving art. Today we have again found that same truth. The streets of Ur were named and some of them were paved. There was a sewage system. The walls of the city have been traced for two and a half miles, the wall was 80 feet high and 70 feet wide, made of adobe brick.
The houses were built with only a door on the street side. The houses were built around a paved central court and they were large houses, containing from 13 to 22 rooms. The first story was built of burnt brick and the second story of adobe brick, then this was plastered and whitewashed. The stairs to the upper floor went up from the central court. Behind the stairs was the bathroom. Each had a library with books containing their genealogies. Hymn books were found here as well as in the temples. There were archaeologists among the people also, for copies of inscriptions on and in old buildings were found.
The people wrote with a stylus on tablets of moist clay that when dried and baked, the tablets became almost imperishable. So, we have a complete record of their life. In the time of Abraham, and centuries before his day. Ur had ceased to be the political capital but was the religious capital. Ur was a city of libraries, schools, art museums and all the refinements know to human society.
There was no illiteracy in Ur, in the time of Abraham. Every an, woman and child over 7, was compelled to learn to read and write. Society was so constituted, in its everyday activities, that such knowledge and skills were necessary. The school books consisted of texts in mathematics, astronomy, history and medicine. There were grammars with the full conjugation of verbs in two languages. Sumerian and Hebrew, there were even forms for extracting both square and cube roots.
There is one clay tablet 3 by 2 ½ inches, that is a contract between a land owner and a tenant farmer. The land owner agreed to provide the land, seed and the animals to work the crops. The tenant farmer affirmed that he would prepare the land, plant the crops, work it, and market the produce for 2/3rds of the proceeds. Sounds modern doesn’t it? Then each signed the agreement and in addition one took hold of one corner of the tablet, and the other the diagonally opposite corner, thus sealing the contract with his thumb print. We thought we had discovered something new in finger printing.
There was a postal system established by Naram-Sin about 3750 B.C. The routes extended from the Euphrates to the Nile. It wasn’t just official correspondence. On husband wrote to his wife, “Do not neglect the house. Have a look at things. Pray to the gods on my behalf. Let me hear through some message what you are thinking of.”
Another message thanks to a friend for sending him his physician. There was one lady Kasbeya from Gimil-Marodack; “I am living at Babylon, but have not seen you, which troubles me greatly. Send me news of your coming to me, so that I may be happy.” The one we like best is the one from a son urging is father to send him some money, there is no change there.
One tablet gives a payroll for seven months. Another almost identical tablet was found written two years later, three changes had taken place. One man’s salary had been raised, that of another reduced and a woman had taken a man’s position, receiving the same salary. That isn’t always done today.
Among the professions of ancient Babylon, money lending held a foremost place. In some instances, the money lenders founded businesses which lasted for generations and brought a large part of the property of the area into their possession.
One archaeologist said they were the Rothschilds of the ancient world. Sometimes the interest charged was 10% sometimes 162/3%. There are even records of buying and selling on the installment plan. There is a contract around Abraham’s time, about the rental of a wagon wit the stipulation that it may not be driven over to the coast. So our car rental is nothing new either.
King Hammurabi was a contemporary of Abraham. He was the king the Bible calls Amraphel, you will find him mentioned in the 14th chapter of Genesis. He had 283 sections in his law codes regulating almost every conceivable incident and relationship of life.
Irrigation laws provided that if land is not cultivated, the holder must give account and pay compensation. The laws covered canal and water rights, the fees and responsibilities of builders and boatmen. If fixed the charges of physicians and surgeons and even veterinarians. Other laws dealt with the duties of tax collectors, yes they had tax collectors even then.
Origin of the White Race
Those who hate to believe our Israel Identity like to smart off and snarl: “What’s so special about the white race anyway?” These people like to close their eyes to the fact that ALL CIVILIZATION; from ancient times, to the present, is the product of the White Race.
What the dark races have, was taught and brought to them by us. We will take up this challenge, and show that THERE IS SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL ABOUT OUR RACE, altogether aside from our ability and accomplishments. The very origin of the True Israel of Yahweh, the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and related people, was in itself a miracle from the hand of Yahweh.
You will remember that Yahweh first made His promises, of a marvelous future, to Abraham. These promises to Abram (Abraham) by Yahweh, are recorded in Genesis 13:16:
“I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.”
Again Yahweh told Abram (Abraham) in Genesis 15:5:
“And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.”
Genesis 17:4, 7 continues;
“My covenant it is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations...And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant.”
Yahweh told Isaac in Genesis 28:14:
“And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.”
Abraham had a total of eight sons. Yahweh told Abraham that only his son Isaac, whose mother was Sarah, was to be the ancestor of the promised line, called by Yahweh to become His people Israel. In Genesis 21:12 Yahweh promises Abraham,
“In Isaac shall thy seed be called.”
In Romans 9:7 we find the second witness:
“Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.”
Not only was Isaac, our ancestor, specially selected by Yahweh, but his very existence was a miracle. Two parties are necessary for the birth of all other children. But, the birth of Isaac required three parties, his father Abraham, his mother Sarah, and Yahweh.
A year before the birth of Isaac, Yahweh gave him his name, recorded in Genesis 17:21. When Yahweh spoke of a child being born to Sarah, both Abraham and Sarah laughed at the obvious impossibility. Sarah was then 90 years old, and feeble with great age. She was 45 years past the time when she could bear a child and she had been barren all her life. Abraham was 99 years old. Yahweh performed the miracle He had promised. A year later at the age of 91, Sarah bore her first and only child, Isaac.
This was only the first of several miracles. Like his descendant Yahshua, Isaac was named by Yahweh before his birth. Yahshua brought the reality of resurrection from the dead. Isaac was used to furnish a symbolic prophesy of our loved ones given back from the dead. Naturally, all of Abraham’s hopes were now centered upon this miracle son, through whom all of Yahweh’s great promises were to be fulfilled.
Then came the stunning command from Yahweh, “Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering.” Did Yahweh now mean to take away wall that He had promised? No, Abraham knew better than that. Abraham prepared to sacrifice Isaac, not in the awful grief of a father about to witness, even to cause the death of his beloved son, but in serene faith Abraham obeyed Yahweh.
Abraham took his son Isaac and went to Mount Moriah, prepared the wood fire for the burnt offering, never doubting that Yahweh would keep His promise. Either Yahweh would intervene beforehand, or Yahweh would give him back his son from the dead. It is recorded in Revelation 13:8 Abraham told Isaac, “My son, Yahweh will provide Himself a lamb for a burnt offering.” Abraham knew and relied upon the assurance that Yahshua was the Lamb slain from before the foundation of the world.
As always, Yahweh honored His word. Genesis chapter 22 tells how Yahweh did provide the burnt offering with a ram that was trapped by his horns, in the thicket. So Abraham made the sacrifice with the offering provided by Yahweh. Here is Christianity in the Old Testament, we have nothing of our own to offer in atonement for our sins. It is Yahweh who provides the lamb as the sin offering.
The offering of the beloved son prefigures the sacrifice of Yahshua as the Lamb of Yahweh. The fact that his promised career was not interrupted by death, symbolizes the swift resurrection of Yahshua from the dead. This was so He could continue His promised work on our behalf. For us, the threat of death is not real. Yahweh not only promised us continued life, but has strengthened our faith by clear demonstration of the power and will to resurrect us.
It is very fitting that Isaac was specially chosen and called by Yahweh to be our ancestor, as we are specially chosen and called by Yahweh to be His people, and to do His will on earth. We are all the children of Isaac, only by a miracle from the hand of Yahweh did Isaac ever come into existence at all. Remember this miracle is our miracle too, for without it we also would not exist today. Only by another miracle from Yahweh did Isaac grow to maturity and become the earthly father of us all. We, the White Race, are the product of that miracle.
Yahweh told Isaac, recorded in Genesis 26:4:
“I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries: and IN THY SEED SHALL ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED.”
With all our human imperfections, we have fulfilled this prophecy. We have brought the other races every good thing they ever knew. We stopped the pestilence which had previously ravaged their lands. As long as we remained in command of their lands, we brought them the only public education they have ever known. We taught them improved methods of agriculture, and when they still weren’t able to feed themselves, on many occasions we sent them shipments of food, which saved millions from death by famine.
By a miracle, Yahweh created Isaac for a purpose, to be the ancestor of our race. By miracles, Yahweh brought us to the great numbers and power He had promised to us. Yahweh said of us; “They shall show forth my praise.” Despite our human faults, we have done so.
The Assyrians among others, began calling the kingdom of Israel, the house of Omri. In Hebrew, house was babyith or bayth, in English it was usually spelled beth and pronounced beth. In the related Semitic languages of Assyrian, this was bit. The Hebrew Omri, was in Assyrian sometimes written Humari, sometimes Kumri.
With this preface in mind, let’s start tracing the Israelites from their Palestinian homeland, in the Assyrian conquest and deportation. In 2 Kings 15:29 we read,
“In the days of Pekah, king of Israel, came Tiglath-Pileser, king of Assyria and took ljon and Abel-beth-maachah and Janoa and Kedesh and Hazor and Gilead and Galilee, all the land of Naphtali and carried them captive to Assyria.”
1 Chronicles 5:26 records;
“And the God of Israel stirred up the spirit of Pul, king of Assyria, and the spirit of Tiglath-Pileser, king of Assyria and he carried them away, even the Reubenites and the Gadites and the half tribe of Manasseh and brought them unto Halah and Habor and Hara and to the river Gozan, unto this day.”
Confirmation of this is found in inscriptions of Tiglath-Pileser, which archaeologists have dug up and are in our museums today. One of these says,
“The cities of Gala’za (probably Assyrian for Galilee), Abikka (probably Assyrian for Abel-beth-maacha), which are on the border of Bit Humria, the whole land of Naphtali in its entirety, I brought within the border of Assyria. My official I set over them as governor. The land of bit Humria, all of its people, together with all their goods, I carried off to Assyria. Pahaka their king they deposed and I placed Ausi as king.”
In confirmation of this change in kings, we read in 2 Kings 15:30;
“And Hoshea the son of Elah made a conspiracy against Pekan son of Remaliah and smote him and slew him and reigned in his stead.”
The conquest thus had begun in the northeastern and northern parts of the kingdom about 740 B.C. Then it worked southward, down to the heavily fortified capital city to Samaria, which was captured about 721 B.C. Another king of Assyria reigned by that time, 2 Kings 18:9-11 records it as follows:
“And it came to pass in the 4th year of King Hezekiah (of Judah) which was the 7th year of Hoshea, son of Elah, king of Israel, that Shalmanezer, king of Assyria, came up against Samaria and besieged it. And at the end of 3 years they took it, even in the 6th year of Hezekiah, that is the 9th year of Hoshea, king of Israel, Samaria was taken. And the king of Assyria did carry away Israel unto Assyria and put them in Halah and in Habor by the river of Gozan and in the cities of the Medes.”
We know King Shalmanezer died toward the latter part of this siege and the final conquest and deportation was carried on by his successor, King Sargon II. In confirmation of this an inscription of Sargon II says;
“In the beginning of my reign, the city of Samaria I besieged, I captured 27,280 of its inhabitants which I carried away.”
The deportation of a whole nation naturally took a considerable period of time. The journey had to be organized, with adequate supples for each convoy on each state of the journey and proper organization of the places selected to receive them. We know that Sargon II did not hold the cities of the Medes east of the Zagros mountains until a few years after 721 B.C. So about 715 B.C. to 712 B.C., is the correct date for the deportation to Media. The places to which Israel was deported by the Assyrians can be summed up as constituting an arc or semi-circle, around the southern end of the Caspian Sea.
This deportation took in the entire population of the northern tribes constituting the nation of Israel. From this point on, the separation into tribes is apparently lost and it is as a nation that the kingdom of Israel moved into its Assyrian captivity. This left part of the other two tribes still living in the southern kingdom of Judah.
Assyria and Egypt were the two giant empires of that day, each seeking domination over all the smaller and weaker nations. Assyria had driven Egyptian influence out of western Asia, back to the continent of Africa and had made all the smaller nations surrounding Judah into vassal states, paying heavy tribute to Assyria. The brutal and rapacious character of the Assyrians made them no friends.
Their vassal states were always hopefully looking for any means of escape from Assyrian power. Egypt kept the hope of revolt alive, by offers of military assistance to those who would rebel against Assyria. The death of a king seemed to most opportune time for revolt, since his successor would need time to het his power organized. He might even face some competition at home for his throne. Therefore, when King Sargon II of Assyria died about 705 B.C., revolts began in western Asia, the kingdom of Judah under King Hezekiah taking part in the hope of military aid from Egypt. The prophet Isaiah had warned the revolt would fail.
The new king of Assyria, Sennacherib, set about recovering his empire. One rebellious city after another was reconquered, with the hideous cruelty characteristic of Assyria. In 701 B.C., Sennacherib’s huge army invaded the kingdom of Judah. Midway through it, they paused briefly to defeat the Egyptian army, then moved on to besiege Jerusalem. None of the smaller cities of Judah were able to resist. 2 Kings 18:13 and Isaiah 36:1 record:
“In the 14th year of King Hezekiah, Sennacherib came up against all the fortified cities of Judah and captured them.”
Then followed the siege of Jerusalem, which was ended when the angel of Yahweh killed 185,000 Assyrian soldiers in one night, and Sennacherib gave up the siege and fled back to his own land.
In conformation of this, Sennacherib’s own record of this says:
“I then besieged Hezekiah of Judah, who had not submitted to my yoke, and I captured 46 of his strong cities and fortresses and innumerable small cities which were round about the, with the battering of rams and the assault of engines and the attack of foot soldiers, and by mines and breaches made in the walls. I brought out there from 200,150 people, both small and great. Hezekiah himself, like a caged bird, I shut up within Jerusalem his royal city.”
Ancient kings were boastful of their victories, but never of their defeats. King Sennacherib tactfully fails to state how the siege of Jerusalem ended, but he does confirm the capture of all the other cities of Judah and the deportation of 200,150 people.
The Assyrian Invasions of Israel all occurred in the time of Israel’s last four kings, and culminated in the destruction of the kingdom.
The story of the later kings of Israel is one of conspiracy, assassination and usurpation. King Shallum had murdered his predecessor Zechariah, the last king of Jehu’s dynasty; but he enjoyed his ill-gotten throne for but one month before he himself was assassinated by Menahem. This king held the royal power for ten years, and was succeeded by his son Pakahiah, who after a short reign of two years was murdered by Pekah. Pekah after he had reigned for twenty years was murdered by Hoshea, who was the last of Israel’s kings in the Holy Land.
The invasions took place in the reigns of:
There was no invasion during Pekhiah’s short reign.
The bible gives four accounts of these invasions. Three of them are found in the Second Book of Kings:
2 Kings 15:19-20.
2 Kings 15:29.
2 Kings 17:3-6.
and one in the First Book of Chronicles:
1 Chronicles 5:26.
The latter is another account of the one mentioned in 2 Kings 15:29. Thus we have in all, four accounts of three invasions.
The names of the invading Emperors given in these passages are:
Pul was the same person as Tiglath-pileser, he assumed the name which was that of a famous previous emperor. (See the Encyclopedia Britannica)
The Bible does not mention Sargon by name in this connection: we learn however from secular history that he was the “tartan” of Shalmaneser’s forces, and that he seized the throne upon the death of Shalmaneser, which occurred towards the end of the siege of Samaria; and that it was actually he who effected the capture of the city. This fact would be unknown to the Recorder of the Israel chronicles within the beleaguered city, as he does not mention the fact.
We now proceed to study these invasions.
The First and Second Invasions
Among the several prophecies foretelling the Captivity of Israel, two notable prophecies demand special attention. They were made by Hosea and Isaiah.
(a) The First was uttered on the birth of his firstborn son Jezreel:
“And the Lord said unto him, Call his name Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will avenge the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu, and WILL CAUSE TO CEASE THE KINGDOM OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL.” (Hosea 1:4)
(b) The Second was uttered on the birth of his only daughter Lo-Ruhamah:
“And God said unto him, Call her name Lo-Ruhamah; for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel; but I WILL UTTERLY TAKE THEM AWAY.” (Hosea 1:6)
The First speaks of the Fall of the Kingdom.
The Second speaks of the Deportation of the Nation.
No fixable dates are given for these events. It is evident that the two events were not to be synchronous; the nation is not to be carried utterly away at the time of the fall of the kingdom.
This was spoken when Pekah king of Israel with Rezin king of Syria contemplated attacking Ahaz king of Judah.
“Within three score and five years shall Ephraim be broken THAT IT BE NOT A PEOPLE.” (Isaiah 7:8)
Here, fortunately, we are able to fix approximate dates, for these words were uttered just before 741 B.C. And we are told that within sixty-five years Israel would be broken so that it would be no longer “a People,” obviously a People in Palestine.
It says nothing about the cessation of the Kingdom in the land, but only of the cessation of the Nation there.
Hosea’s Lo-Ruhamah prophecy and Isaiah’s Three Score and Five Years prophecy describe the same event’ they are synchronous and refer to a complete transportation of the entire nation from Palestine.
Sixty-five years from 741 would be about 676 B.C., a crucial date the history of Israel and one to be borne in mind.
The First Invasion
As already stated the first invasion was by Pul, Tiglath-pileser in the reign of Menahem (2 Kings 15:19-20). Only the northern outskirts of Israel’s land were invaded, when Menahem bought off the king of Assyria with a huge ransom of four thousands pounds of silver. Tiglath-pileser thereupon retired, having taken possession of no territory, and having carried away no captives with him.
This first invasion was therefore but a light affliction as compared with what was to follow later. It is usually ignored and not reckoned an invasion at all since it left the kingdom intact as before.
The Bible account is as follows:
19). And Pul the king of Assyria came against the land: and Menahem gave Pul a thousand talents of silver, that his hand might be with him to confirm the kingdom in his hand.
20). And Menahem exacted the money of Israel, even of all the mighty men of wealth, of each man fifty shekels of silver, to give to the king of Assyria. So the king of Assyria turned back, and stayed not there in the land.” (2 Kings 15:19‑20)
The Second Invasion
The Second invasion is recorded in 2 Kings 15:29. This occurred in the reign of Pekah, and was prosecuted by Tiglath-pileser.
Here is the record:
“In the days of Pekah king of Israel came Tiglath‑pileser king of Assyria, and took Ijon, and Abel‑beth‑ma'achah, and Jonoah, and Kedesh, and Hazor, and Gilead, and Galilee, all the land of Naphtali, and carried them captive to Assyria.
30 And Hoshea the son of Elah made a conspiracy against Pekah the son of Remaliah, and smote him, and slew him, and reigned in his stead ...” (2 Kings 15:29-30)
Causes of the Invasion
What were the circumstances that led up to this invasion? Towards the end of his reign Pekah in alliance with Rezin, king of Syria, made an attack upon Judah, 2 Kings 15:37, 16:5 and Isaiah 7:2. Ahaz had succeeded to the throne of Judah on the death of his father Jotham. These allied kings for some reason conceived the idea of conquering Judah, of dethroning the new king Ahaz, and of setting the son of Tabeal on the throne of Judah.
It was at this time that the term “Jews” first appears in the Bible, 2 Kings 16:6. It covered all the people of the kingdom of Judah, composed of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin and all the Levites, and no other tribes. The next mention of the name “Jew” occurs in the reign of Hezekiah (son of Ahaz), when Sennacherib (son of Sargon) invaded Judah (2 Kings 18:26, 28). (And the first time the word is mentioned it is about a people who are at war with Israel)
The prophet Isaiah assured king Ahaz that the project of these allied kings, whom he designated as “these smoking firebrands,” would not succeed. It was on this occasion that he uttered the notable prophecy against Israel, stating the time of her down fall.
“Within three score and five years shall Ephraim be broken that it be not a people.” (Isaiah 7:8)
Ahaz, in spite of the prophet’s assurance that the purpose of the two kings should not stand or come to pass, was thoroughly alarmed, and called in Tiglath-pileser to his assistance (2 Kings 16:7). He humbled himself exceedingly and sent to the Assyrians all the gold and silver on which he could lay hands. Tiglath-pileser thereupon marshaled his forces against Syria and Israel. He conquered Syria and slew Rezin, and then turned upon Israel.
His campaign is clearly outlined in the above account. He invaded the northern region of the land, coming down south to the level of the Sea of Galilee, where he turned eastwards and invaded the eastern portion of Israel, Transjordania, which reached southward nearly to the level of the Dead Sea. This was the extent of the second invasion of Israel. The date of it was about 741 B.C.
It is noteworthy that the tribe of Dan is never mentioned in these accounts whilst the other tribes are named. The northern Danites should have been the first to feel the Assyrian impact. They were not there, and are believed to have migrated by sea to avoid the foreseen Assyrian menace.
The Deportation of Captives
Now occurred the first deportation of Israel from the conquered regions. The number of the captives taken is not mentioned. They were removed “to Assyria:” their exact location is not told us in this account, but from the parallel narrative in 1 Chronicles we find that it was to the same regions where the subsequent deportations were settled, namely, Hala, Habor, Hara and the river Gozan. It must have been a great host for the Assyrian king in his Inscriptions says: “All of its people together with their goods I carried off to Assyria.”
The Parallel Account of
The Second Invasion
Another account of this invasion is found in 1 Chronicles 5:26:
26). And the God of Israel stirred up the spirit of Pul king of Assyria, and the spirit of Tiglath‑pilsener king of Assyria, and he carried them away, even the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh, and brought them unto Halah, and Habor, and Hara, and to the river Gozan, unto this day.
From this account it might appear that the invasion was by two separate kings; but it adds that “he carried them away,” showing that they were one and the same person. As mentioned above Pul assumed the second name.
This narrative mentions no number of the captives, but their precise location in Assyria is given. It also states that they were there “unto this day,” indicating that at the time of writing the Book of Chronicles, which was long years after this event, these captives had not returned to Judah with the partial return of the Judeans from their captivity in Babylon as some would fain have us believe.
In these first two invasions of Israel were fulfilled Isaiah’s words:
1). Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations. (Isaiah 9:1)
At the end of this invasion, Pekah, king of Israel, was murdered by Hoshea, who seized the throne. Hoshea was recognized as the lawful king by Tiglath-pileser, and was made to pay tribute to the Assyrians.
Assyrian Inscriptions Concerning
The Second Invasion
In “The ancient Records of Assyria and Babylon,” by D.D. Luckenbill, p. 292, there are two inscriptions given of the invasion:
“The cities of ... Gala’za, Abilkka, which are on the border of Bit-Humria ... the whole land of Naphtali, in its entirety, I brought within the border of Assyria. My official I set over them as governor ...
“The land of Bit-Humria ... all of its people together with all their goods I carried off to Assyria. Pakaha their kind they deposed, and I placed Ausi as king. Ten talents of gold, ten talents of silver, as their tribute I received from them, and to Assyria I carried them.”
Pakaha was the Assyrian for Pekah, and Ausi for Hoshea. These inscriptions are of value because they completely corroborate the statements of God’s Word.
It is obvious that neither the Jezreel nor the Lo-Ruhamah prophecies of Hosea were fulfilled at this time: nor was Isaiah’s Three Score and Five Years prophecy fulfilled now, in fact it had only just been uttered.
The Third Invasion
The Third Invasion of Israel was by the Emperor Shalmaneser, whose commander-in-chief was Sargon. It took place in the sixth year of Hoshea.
There are some who suggest that Shalmaneser made two invasions. The first of these mentioned in 2 Kings 17:3, where it says:
3). Against him came up Shalmaneser, king of Assyria, and Hoshea became his servant, and gave him presents.
The second in verse 5 of the same chapter:
5). Then the king of Assyria came up throughout all the land, and went up to Samaria and besieged it three years.
Whatever the truth may be concerning this point, it is the so-called second one that is of supreme importance, and the first is ignored by all, and both are generally regarded as only one.
This third Invasion was most disastrous, for it terminated the kingdom of Israel in Palestine. Here is the whole account of it:
2 Kings 17:3‑5:
3). Against him came up Shalmaneser king of Assyria; and Hoshea became his servant, and gave him presents.
4). And the king of Assyria found conspiracy in Hoshea: for he had sent messengers to So king of Egypt, and brought no present to the king of Assyria, as he had done year by year: therefore the king of Assyria shut him up, and bound him in prison.
5). Then the king of Assyria came up throughout all the land, and went up to Samaria, and besieged it three years.
This campaign began about 723 B.C., and ended in 721.
The refusal of Hoshea to continue to pay to Shalmaneser the annual tribute exacted by Assyria was the cause of this invasion; and to this was added the fact that Hoshea had appealed to Egypt for assistance; a very serious matter for Assyrian ambitions and foreign policy. Shalmaneser somehow made Hoshea a prisoner, and began hostilities. He overran the land and laid siege to the capital. It is strange to realize that during this campaign the king of Israel was a prisoner in the hands of the enemy.
Whether other cities were taken, and captives carried away is not recorded in the Bible; such events would not be known to the State Recorder shut up in the beleaguered capital. There are no monumental records of the campaign by Shalmaneser extant. It is said that all such, if any, were destroyed by Sargon: but this os not relevant to our subject.
Sayce in his book, “Assyria, its Princes, Priests and People,” p. 48, shows that Shalmaneser died, or was murdered, a year before Samaria fell, and that it was Sargon who actually completed its reduction. This fact is not recorded in the Bible for the simple reason that the State Recorder of Israel, shut up in Samaria, would not have been aware of such events, and would have no opportunity of writing them after the fall of the city, because he, with all the officials and inhabitants, was carried away captive to Assyria. For the same reason he could not have recorded the actual fall of the city, or state the number of the captives carried away into Assyria, or their location in that land. All such information must come from other sources.
Remember, all the people of the northern tribes, were already settled around the southern end of the Caspian Sea, in the Assyrian deportation of Israel. To them was now added a large portion of the southern tribes of Benjamin and Judah. The Assyrian deportation included all of the tribes and a substantial representation from the others. These were the people who became your ancestors and mine when they moved into Europe.
Over the years, the increasing numbers of the Israelite tribes expanded northward along both sides of the Caspian Sea. They were not basically city builders, but farmers and herdsmen. Probably in the earlier part of their stay here, the Assyrians sternly discouraged the building of cities which would naturally be fortified centers of resistance. As the Israelites were moved into this area, herded along as prisoners, robbed of all their belongings, they had to make themselves brush shelters or booths where they stopped for any length of time.
Here in the southwest our Indians all such a brush shelter a wickiup, the Hebrews called it a soocaw applying the name also to a tent, it was the only house a nomad owned. The plural of soocaw was succoth, gradually this was slurred over into south, used of a tent dweller and finally became Sythian.
The great carving on the Behistun Rock, made about 516 B.C., carried inscriptions showing the many different nations who were tributary to king Tarius I of Persia. These inscriptions were written in old Persian, Median and Assyrian. They showed that among these were a Sythian nation, called in Assyrian and Babylonian Gimiri, which means the tribes. From Gimiri was derived the name of the Cimmerians, who settled somewhat to the north and into the Ukraine. The Behistun inscriptions also stated that these people were called Sakk in Persian and Median. Already the later names are beginning to evolve.
The great Greek historian Herodotus, who lived form 484 B.C. to 425 B.C., and was generally called the father of history, speaking of these people says:
“The Sacae, or Scyths, were clad in trousers and had on their heads tall, still caps rising to a point. They bore the bow of their country and the dagger, besides which they carried the battle axe or sagaris. They were in truth Amygian Scythians, but the Persians called them Sacae, since that is the name which they gave to all Scythians.”
Incidentally, some of the magnificent carved walls of the ancient ruins of the Persian palace at Persepolis show illustrations of those Sacae, in their trousers and pointed caps, bringing tribute to the Persian king.
We are now getting further clues to these people. Herodotus says that the Scythians or Sacae, first appeared in that land in the seventh century B.C. This is the same period in which the tribes of Israel were settled there by their Assyrian conquerors. Their use of the battle axe as a weapon is a carry over from their history as Israel. In Jeremiah 51:20 Yahweh says of Israel;
“Thou art my battle axe and weapons of war, for with thee will I break in pieces the nations and with thee will I destroy kingdoms.”
We will see later that the name evolved from Sakke to Saxon. It noteworthy that the battle axe was the great weapon of the Saxons.
These Scythians or Sacae lived up to Yahweh’s description of Israel as His battle axe and weapons of war. They became a military people of great power, who did much to break up ancient nations. The Greek geographer and historian Strabo, who lived between 63 B.C. and about 21 A.D., says:
“Most of the Scythians, beginning from the Caspian Sea, are called Dahae Scythae and those situated more towards the east, Massagatae and Sacae. The rest have the common name of Scythians, but each tribe has its own peculiar name. The Sacae had made incursions similar to those of the Cimmerians and Trares, some near their own country, others at a greater distance. They occupied Bactriana, and got possession of the most fertile tract in Armenia, which was called after their own name, Sacasene. They advanced even as far as the Cappadocians, those particularly situated near the Euxine Sea, today called the Black Sea. They are now called Pontici.”
This was but the early part of their expansion; when a century had elapsed since their deportation to this land of Scythia, they had grown strong enough to begin the long series of harassing wars against their conquerors, the Assyrians. They lacked the strength to capture the powerfully fortified grous of cities about the Assyrian capitol and in turn, their nomadic habits made it easy for them to retreat before a too powerful Assyrian army. Generations of this constant warfare wore down the Assyrians and bled them white, so that when the Medes finally overran Assyria and captured Nineveh in 612 B.C., their victory was a fairly easy one against the exhausted Assyrians.
From this point on, we could refer you to just one historical work which fully traces the Scythians on to their settlement in England as the Anglo-Saxons. “A History of the Anglo-Saxons,” by Sharon Turner, does a magnificent job of this.
No historian in our times, can have any personal knowledge of what happened 2,000 years ago. His writings can be no better than the source material he has obtained from people who lived and wrote at the time when accurate information could still be had. Most modern history books are based on rather scanty documentation from early sources, as it is so much easier for one historian to copy from another. Sharon Turner’s “A History of the Anglo-Saxons” is one of the most thoroughly documented historical studies ever produced and its reliability is beyond question. He traces the Anglo-Saxons of Britain back to the Scythians. Unfortunately, he doesn’t go the one step further and trace the Scythians back to Israel but, we can do that from other sources.
Let’s go back to the Scythians, as the people of Israel became known in the land to which they were deported. Diodorus Siculus, a Greek Historian who lived in the times of Julius and Augustus Caesar, says:
“The Scythians anciently enjoyed but a small tract of ground, but (through their valor) growing stronger by degrees, they enlarged their dominion far and near and attained at last to a vast and glorious empire. At the first, a very few of them, and those very despicable for their mean origin, seated themselves near the Araxes river. Afterwards, on of their ancient kings, who was a warlike prince and skillful in arms, captured for their country all the mountainous parts as far as to Mount Caucasus. Some time afterwards their 0osterity, becoming famous and eminent for valor and marital affairs, subdued many territories. Then, turning their arms the other way, they led their forces as far as to the Nile river, in Egypt.”
Other historians record that BLOND SCYTHIANS made an expedition against Palestine and Egypt about 626 B.C. The town of Scthopolis, in the Jordan valley, is named for a settlement on this raid. To continue with Diodorus Siculus he wrote:
“This nation prospered more and more and had kings that were very famous, from whom the Sacans and the Massagatae and the Arimaspians and many others, called by other names, derive their origin amongst others. There were two remarkable colonies that were drawn out of the conquered nations by those kings. The one they brought out of Assyria and settled in the country lying between Paphalgonia and Pontus. The other was drawn out of Media, which they placed near the river Tanais which people are called Sauromatians.”
Note how Yahweh’s destiny for these people worked, they would not leave behind any pockets of their people in the lands where their conquerors had settled them. When they had gained great power, they came back and picked up any who remained, taking them into the migrating mass. Likewise, history records that they raided Babylon, after its overthrow by the Medes and Persian, carrying off with them such of the people of Judah and Benjamin as were not going back to Jerusalem.
Hosea 2:6: “Therefore, behold, I will hedge up thy way with thorns, and make a wall, that she shall not find her paths.”
Even in early times, before the final mass movement into Europe, the Scythians had begun their march to their new homelands, where some of them had already arrived before the beginning of the Christian era. Pliny the Elder, a Roman historian who lived from 23 to 79 A.D., says:
“The name Scythian has extended in every direction, even to the Sarmatae and the Gerkans. But this ancient name is now only given to those who dwell beyond those nations and live unknown to nearly all the rest of the world. Beyond the Danube, are the peoples of Scythia. The Persians have called them by the general name of Sacae, which properly belongs only to the nearest nation of them. The more ancient writers give them the name of Aramii (Arameans). The multitude of these Scythians is quite innumerable. In their life and their habits they much resemble the people of Parthia (Persia). The tribes among them that are better known are the Sacae, the Massagatae, the Dahae, etc.”
Others have noted this early migration into Germany. For example, Herodotus mentions a migration and settlement of a people he calls the Sigynoe, who themselves claimed to be colonists from Media and who migrated as far as the Rhine river. Remember that among the places the Israelites were resettled were in the cities of the Medes.
Also note that Pliny the Elder said:
“The more ancient writers give them the name of Aramii,” an Aramean, in modern language called Syrian. In Deuteronomy 26:5, every Israelite was commanded to confess,
“A Syrian ready to perish was my father, and he went down into Egypt and sojourned there with a few and became a nation, great, mighty and populous.”
Hence, such ancient writers could correctly identify the Israelite Scythians as Arameans, for they had come from a land which was part of Syria.
Because of the false teachings of the Judeo-Christian clergy people are unable to realize that someone that lives in a place does not necessarily mean they are the same people as those who named the land. For instance; if a person who was born in Texas in the United States of America, and moves to another state or nation; does not change from being a Texan, just because he has moved. He still remains a Texan and an America, for nothing can change that even though that man may decide to call the other state or nation his home.
Also, one must remember that in all the travels the jews went or followed after them for they are a parasite people and cannot exist without the blood of True Israel to drink and use for their religious rituals.
The History of Jewish Human Sacrifice
At the dawn of civilization, the blood rite, in which human blood is drunk from the body of a still-living victim, was known to many tribes. However, only one people, that has never progressed beyond the Stone Age, has continued to practice the blood rite and ritual murder. This people are know to the world as Jews. Arnold Toynbee, a noted scholar, has called the Jews "a fossil people."
In so doing, he must have been aware of the fact that they still practice ritual murder and the drinking of human blood (especially Christian blood). As a scholar, he could not have failed to note the many attested incidents of this practice of the Jews, for hundreds of example of ritual murder by the Jews are cited in official Catholic books, in every European literature, and in the court records of all the European nations.
It is the official historian of the Jews, (Josef Kastein, in his History of the Jews, who gives the underlying reason for this barbaric custom. On page 173, he says, "According to the primeval Jewish view, the blood was the seat of the soul."
Thus it was not the heart which was the seat of the soul, according to the stone-age Jews, but the blood itself. They believed that by drinking the blood of a Christian victim who was perfect in every way, they could overcome their physical short comings and become as powerful as the intelligent civilized beings among whom they had formed their parasitic communities. Because of this belief, the Jews are known to have practiced drinking blood since they made their first appearance in history.
Jewish Murder Plan
Against White Christians Exposed
THE MURDEROUS PEOPLE: The Jews are under a terrible suspicion the world over, and for good reason. Anyone who does not know this, does not understand the Jewish problem. Anyone who merely see the Jews as “a tribe which secures its existence with exchange and old trousers, and whose uniforms are the long noses,” is being misled.
But anyone who knows the monstrous accusation which has been raised against the jews since the beginning of time, will view these people in a different light. He will begin to see not only a peculiar, strangely fascinating nation; but criminals, murderers, and devils in human form. He will be filled with holy anger and hatred against these people of Satan. (John 8:44)
The suspicion under which the Jews are held is murder. They are charged with enticing White Christian Children (and sometimes blacks to keep them under control - and if necessary they will run black children down in the streets with automobiles to show the blacks their power, and that the blacks had better mind their manners or the same will happen again and again. We all witnessed this a few years ago in New York city when the car of Rabbi Shneerson ran over a black child. And as usual the Jews bought off the blacks who were inciting the mobs against them; if they had been unsuccessful in this they would have had the blacks who dared not be controlled murdered) and at time White Christian adults, butchering them, and draining their blood.
They are charged with mixing this blood into their masses (unleaded bread) and using it to practice superstitious magic. They are charged with torturing their victims, especially the children; and during this torture they shout threats, curses, and cast spells against non-Jews. This systematic murder has a special name, it is called,
The knowledge of Jewish ritual murder is thousands of years old. It is as old as the Jews themselves. Non-Jews have passed the knowledge of it from generation to generation, and it has been passed down to us thorough writings.
It is known of throughout the nations. Knowledge of ritual murder can be found in even the most secluded rural villages. The grand-father told his grand children, who passed it on to his children, and his children’s children, until we have inherited the knowledge today from them.
It is also befalling other nations. The accusation is loudly raised immediately, anywhere in the world, where a body is found which bears the marks of ritual murder. This accusation is raised only against the Jews. Hundreds and hundreds of nations, tribes, and races live on this earth, but no one ever thought to accuse them of the planned murdering of children, or to call them murderers. All nations have hurled this accusation only against the Jews.
And many great men have raised such an accusation. Martin Luther wrote in his book “Of The Jews And Their Lies:”
“They stabbed and pierced the body of the young boy Simon of Trent. They have also murdered other children...The sun never did shine on a more bloodthirsty and revengeful people as they who imagine to be the people of God, and who desire to and think they must murder and crush the heathen. Jesus Christ, the Almighty Preacher from Nazareth, spoke to the Jews: ‘Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning...”
"He (Martin Luther) accused them (the Jews) of all those fictitious crimes which had made Europe such a hell for them. He, too, claimed that they poisoned the wells used by Christians, assassinated their Christian patients, and murdered Christian children to procure blood for the Passover. He called on the princes and rulers to persecute them mercilessly, and commanded the preachers to set the mobs on them. He declared that if the power were his, he would take all the leaders of the Jews and tear their tongues out by the roots." (Stranger than Fiction, p. 249)
THE STRUGGLE OF DER STURMER: The only newspaper in Germany, yes, in the entire world, until recently in Egypt and Sandia Arabia, which often screamed the accusation of ritual murder into the Jewish face, was Der Sturmer. For more than ten yeas Der Sturmer led a gigantic battle against Judaism. Which caused Der Sturmer to be under constant attack by the Jews. Dozens of times it has been confiscated and prohibited.
Its workers, most of all its editor Julius Streicher, were dragged into court hundreds of times. They were convicted, punished and locked into prison. Der Sturmer came to know the Jew from the confession which Dr. Conrad Alberti-Sittenfeld, a Jew, wrote in 1899 in No. 12 of the magazine Gesellschaft:
“One of the most dangerous Jewish qualities is the brutal, direct barbaric intolerance. A worse tyranny cannot be practiced than that which the Jewish clique practices. If you try to move against this Jewish clique, they will, without hesitating, use brutal methods to overcome you. Mainly the Jew tries to destroy his enemy in the mental area, by which he takes his material gain away, and undermines his civil existence. The vilest of all forms of retaliation, the boycott, is characteristically Jewish.”
The Der Sturmer was not stopped for several years. Just in Nuremberg alone there have been fought dozens of Talmudic and ritual murder cases in the courts. (Now you know why the Nuremberg trials were held against the German Military leaders, it was retribution by the Jews on their hated enemies the Germans).
Because of the Jewish protests the attention of the world was focused on these cases. Thereafter heavy convictions followed. At first no judge had the courage to expose the Jewish problem. Finally in 1932 (court case lasting from October 30th to November 4th) Der Sturmer won its first victory. The jury found the following:
1). Der Sturmer was not fighting against the Jewish religion; but against the Jewish people.
2). The Talmud and Schulchan Aruch are not religious
books. They have no right to be protected under the religious paragraphs.
3). The laws of the Talmud which are quoted and published in Der Sturmer are exact quotations from the Talmud.
4). The laws of the Talmud are in harsh contradiction to German morals.
5). The Jews of today are being taught from the Talmud.
With this verdict Der Sturmer brought about the first big breach in the Jewish/Roman Administration of Justice, which was given the job before the National Socialist revolution to protect Judaism and its government.
The jews, of course, became greatly agitated about this. But for De Sturmer this success was an omen of the victory yet to come. Of course, Der Sturmer did not stop half way. It knew what had to be done. It was their duty, or so they believed. To frustrate the gigantic murder plot of Judaism against humanity. It was their duty! To brand this nation before the world, to uncover its crimes and to render it harmless. It was their duty!
To free the world from this national pest and parasitic race. Der Sturmer would fulfill its mission. It would, for a time, light up the darkness with the truth which shall eventually rule the world. And it would always direct itself according to the following proverb: “He who knows the truth and does not speak it truly is a miserable creature.”
THE LAWS OF THE TALMUD: If one wishes to learn and understand why the Jews can commit such insane crimes as ritual murder, they must know the Jewish secrets. They must know the teachings of the Torah (The Talmud), and the Schulchan Aruch. These laws and teachings are proof that the Jews feel themselves superior to all nations, that it has declared war on all other races, and that it is the sworn enemy of the whole of non-Jewish humanity. Even Tactius, the Roman historian who lived shortly after Christ (55-120) A.D.) wrote:
“The Jews are a race that hate the gods and mankind. Their laws are in opposition to those of all mortals. They despise what to us is holy. Their laws condone them in committing acts which horrify us.” (Historian V. 3-8)
The Jew knows that when the non-Jewish world knows his laws and sees through his plans that he is lost. Therefore, by threat of death he forbids their translation and publication. A well known Jewish scholar (Dibre David) writes:
“If the Gentiles (non-Jews) knew what we are teaching against them, they would kill us.”
The Jewish secret laws are based on the fundamental principle which states: Only the Jew is human. In contrast all non-Jews are animals, they are beasts in human form. Anything is permitted against them. The Jew may lie to, cheat and steal from them. He may rape and murder them. There are hundreds of passages in the Talmud which the non-jews are described as animals. Some of them are as follows:
1). “The Jews are called human beings, but the non-
Jews are not humans. They are beasts.” (Talmud: Baba Mezia 114b)
2). “The Akum (Negro) is like a dog. Yes, the scripture
teaches to honor the dog more than the Akum.” (Ereget Raschi Erod. 22 30)
3). “Even though God created the non-Jew they are still
animals in human form. It is not becoming for a Jew to be served by an animal. Therefore he will be served by animals in human form.” (Midrasch Talpioth, p. 255, Warsaw 1855)
4). “A pregnant non-Jew is no better than a pregnant animal.” (Coschen Hamischpat 405)
5). “The souls of non-Jews come from impure spirits and are called pigs.” (Jalkut Rubeni gadol 12b)
6). “Although the non-Jew has the same body structure
as the Jew, they compare with the Jew like a monkey to a human.” (Schene Luchoth Haberith, p. 250b)
So that the Jew will never forget that he is dealing with animals, he is reminded by eating, by death, and eve by sexual intercourse constantly. For The Talmud teaches:
1). “If you eat with a non-Jew, it is the same as eating with a dog.” (Tosapoth, Jebamoth 94b)
2). “If a Jew has a non-Jewish servant of maid who dies,
one should not express sympathy to the Jew. You should tell to the Jew: ‘God will replace ‘your loss,’ just as if one of his oxen or asses had died.” (Jore Dea 377, 1)
`3). “Sexual intercoms between non-Jews is like intercourse between animals.” (Sanhedrin 74b)
It is written in the Talmud about the murder of the non-Jew:
1). “It is permitted to take the body and the life of a non-Jew.” (Sepher Ikkarim IIIc, 25)
2). “It is the law to kill anyone who denies the Torah
(Talmud - Sanhedrin 59b). The Christians belong to the denying ones of the Torah (Talmud).” (Coschen Hamischpat 425, Hagah 425, 5)
3). “Every Jew, who spills the blood of the godless (non-Jew), is doing the same as making a sacrifice to God.” (Bammidber Raba, c 21 & Jalkut 772)
These laws of the Talmud were given to the Jews over 3000 years ago. They are just as valid today as they were back then. This is how the Jews are taught from childhood. The results of this stands before us. IT IS JEWISH RITUAL MURDER.
THE JEWS’ BLOODY HISTORY: The Jew is not only the murderer of the Christians in theory. His history proves that he practices what he preaches. The history of the Jewish people is an unbroken chain of mass murders and blood-baths. It started before Christ and has continued with Linen, Trotsky, Sinowjeff, Stalin and etc., up to today:
1). The extreme to which the Jews will go was shown in Persia where the Jew Mordecai and the Jewess Esther had 75,800 Persians murdered. They hanged the Persian King Xerxes’ minister Haman along with his ten sons. They celebrated this bloody victory and to this day still celebrate it during the Feast of Purim. (Book of Esther 9:6)
After Christ in the years 115-117, on the island of Cyrene, the Jews revolted under their leader Bar Kochba. They murdered 220,000 Romans, sawed and chopped them, drank their blood, and ate their bloody raw flesh. (Dio Cassius: Roemische Jeschichte XVIII, 32)
The Jews revolted in Russia in 1917 and established bolshevism under the leadership of Trotsky, Sinojeff and other Jews, a total of 35 million Christians were shot, slayed, tortured, and starved to death. In Hungary, under the leadership of the Bolshevik Jew Bela Kuhn, a horrible massacre was prepared in which tens of thousands of Christians were murdered.
"'The Jewish Establishment":
“In the early 1930s, Walter Duranty of the New York Times was in Moscow, covering Joe Stalin the way Joe Stalin wanted to be covered. To maintain favor and access, he expressly denied that there was famine in Ukraine even while millions of Ukrainian Christians were being starved into submission. For his work Duranty won the Pulitzer Prize for journalism.
“To this day, the Times remains the most magisterial and respectable of American newspapers. How imagine that a major newspaper had had a correspondent in Berlin during roughly the same period who hobnobbed with Hitler, portrayed him in a flattering light, and denied that Jews were being mistreated, thereby not only concealing, but materially assisting the regime's persecution.
“Would that paper's respectability have been unimpaired several decades later? There you have an epitome of what is lamely called 'media bias.' The Western supporters of Stalin haven't just been excused; they have received the halo of victim hood for the campaign, in what liberals call 'the McCarthy era,' to get them out of the government, the education system, and respectable society itself.
“Not only persecution of Jews but any critical mention of Jewish power in the media and politics is roundly condemned as 'anti-Semitism.' But there isn't even a term of opprobrium for participation in the mass murders of Christians. Liberals still don't censure the Communist attempt to extirpate Christianity from Soviet Russia and its empire, and for good reason, liberals themselves, particularly Jewish liberals, are still trying to uproot Christianity from America.
“It's permissible to discuss the power of every other group, from the Black Muslims to the Christian Right, but the much greater power of the Jewish establishment is off-limits. That, in fact, is the chief measure of its power: its ability to impose its own taboos while tearing down the taboos of others, you might almost say its prerogative of offending.
“You can read articles in Jewish-controlled publications from the Times to Commentary blaming Christianity for the Holocaust or accusing Pope Pius XII of indifference to it, but don't look for articles in any major publication that wants to stay in business examining the Jewish role in Communism and liberalism, however temperately." (The Jewish Establishment, Joseph Sobran, September 1995 issue)
In Jewish-Bolshevik Soviet Russia mass murders are even now (1997) are being carried out. The executioners are mostly Jewish men and women. In inventing new methods of torture the Jews are past masters.
To let Christians die under torture give them the greatest pleasure. English reporters write that the Chinese executioners frequently would not carry out their tortures and executions; they shouldered and could not continue. Therefore, Jews and Jewesses took their place.
"The Jews were now free to indulge in their most fervent fantasies of mass murder of helpless victims. Christians were dragged from their beds, tortured and killed. Some were actually sliced to pieces, bit by bit, while others were branded with hot irons, their eyes poked out to induce unbearable pain. Others were placed in boxes with only their heads, hands and legs sticking out. Then hungry rats were placed in the boxes to gnaw upon their bodies. Some were nailed to the ceiling by their fingers or by their feet, and left hanging until they died of exhaustion. Others were chained to the floor and left hanging until they died of exhaustion.
“Others were chained to the floor and hot lead poured into their mouths. Many were tied to horses and dragged through the streets of the city, while Jewish mobs attacked them with rocks and kicked them to death. Christian mothers were taken to the public square and their babies snatched from their arms. A red Jewish terrorist would take the baby, hold it by the feet, head downward and demand that the Christian mother deny Christ. If she would not, he would toss the baby into the air, and another member of the mob would rush forward and catch it on the tip of his bayonet.
“Pregnant Christian women were chained to trees and their babies cut out of their bodies. There were many places of public execution in Russia during the days of the revolution, one of which was described by the American Rohrbach Commission: 'The whole cement floor of the execution hall of the Jewish Cheka of Kiev was flooded with blood; it formed a level of several inches. It was a horrible mixture of blood, brains and pieces of skull. All the walls were bespattered with blood.
“Pieces of brains and of scalps were sticking to them. A gutter of 25 centimeters wide by 25 centimeters deep and about 10 meters long was along its length full to the top with blood. Some bodies were disemboweled, others had limbs chopped off, some were literally hacked to pieces. Some had their eyes put out, the head, face and neck and trunk were covered with deep wounds. Further on, we found a corpse with a wedge driven into its chest. Some had no tongues. In a corner we discovered a quantity of dismembered arms and legs belonging to no bodies that we could locate.'" (Defender Magazine, October 1933)
The history of the Jews is written in the blood of Christians.
"Thanks to the terrible power of our International Banks, we have forced the Christians into wars without number. WARS HAVE A SPECIAL VALUE FOR JEWS, SINCE CHRISTIANS MASSACRE EACH OTHER AND MAKE MORE ROOM FOR US JEWS. WARS ARE THE JEWS’ HARVEST: The Jew banks grow fat on Christian wars. OVER 100-MILLION CHRISTIANS HAVE BEEN SWEPT OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH BY WARS, AND THE END IS NOT YET." (Rabbi Reichorn, speaking at the funeral of Grand Rabbi Simeon Ben-Judah, 1869, Henry Ford also noted that: 'It was a Jew who said, 'Wars are the Jews' harvest'; but no harvest is so rich as civil wars.' The International Jew: The World's Foremost Problem, Vol. III, p. 180)
The history of the Jews is written with Christian blood. Their history proves that the Jew is extremely cruel and at the same time a coward. The Jew is not a born soldier; he is a born sadist and murderer. (John 8:44)
THE LAW OF HUMAN SACRIFICE: For a long time the newspaper Der Sturmer endeavored to find the actual law of ritual murder, the law of human sacrifice. It finally succeeded in doing so. In a trial in which Julius Streicher and Karl Holz were being tried (because of “offending the Jewish Religious Society”) it was proposed that they call as witness Dr. Erich Bischoff. Dr. Bischoff appeared.
He was the leading German expert on the laws of the Talmud. He had dedicated his entire life to the study of the Jewish law books. Dr. Bischoff brought with him a translation of a secret Jewish law, which clarified with one stroke the question of ritual murder. It comes from the book of Sohar. This book is considered to be holy by the Jews.
The eastern Jews especially conform to its laws. In the book of Sohar (a companion of the Talmud). The English translation related:
“Further there is a Law concerning the slaughter of foreigners, who are the same as beasts. This slaughter is to be carried out in a lawfully valid manner. The ones who do not follow the Jewish Religious Law have to be offered to God as a sacrifice. It is to them that Psalm 44:22 refers: ‘Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.” (Thikunne Sohar, edition Berdiwetsch 88b)
Dr. Erich Bischoff declared himself ready to offer an opinion on this expressed law of ritual murder. However he was rejected. He was not admitted by the court for “fear of bias.”
The Catholic priest Dr. Gottsberger took his place. The defendants handed him the above mentioned law in Hebrew and German. Dr. Gottsberger was embarrassed and confused.
After a long consideration he stated that he would not be able to deliver an opinion on the law of human sacrifice. Due to this Julius Streicher and Karl Holz were sentenced to several months imprisonment. Later on, however, Dr. Bischoff (in the trial of 30th October - 4th November 1931) established the correct translation of this law.
This translation and publication of the law of human sacrifice is the greatest blow ever struck the Jews in this controversy. This Law commands the Jews to Butcher Christians and non-Jews. This is to be done in a “Lawful Valid Way.”
This means that Christians are to be sacrificed in the same way as animals. They are to be sacrificed to the Jewish God Baal (Lucifer, Devil, Satan). Therefore, we are dealing with a law which doesn’t only permit the practice of Ritual Murder. But commands it.
JEWISH CONFESSIONS: A further and irrefutable proof of the existence of Jewish Ritual Murder are the numerous Jewish confessions. They come from trials, voluntary statements and from confessions by former rabbis. The confessions were made in two court cases. One of them took place in Trent in 1475, and the other one in Damascus in the years 1840-1842.
The voluntary statement was made by the young Jewess Ben Noud who made it to the French Count Durfort-Civrac. The confessions were made by the following rabbis who truly converted to Christianity: Drach and Goschler, Fra Sifto of Siena, Paolo Medici, Giovanni da Feltre and by the former chief rabbi Neofito, who later changed his name to Teofito and became a monk. These men more or less confirmed the existence of Ritual Murder.
In 1803 the former rabbi Neofito published a sensational book in the Moldavian language. In it he gives details about the terrible Jewish secret of the blood mystery. This book was translated in 1843 into Greek and later in 1883 into Italian, under the title “Il sangue cristiano nei riti ebraici della moderna Sinagoga,” causing the Jews to become very excited the world over.
On page 19 of this work the Jew Teofito confesses how he was initiated into the knowledge of Ritual Murder. And how the Jews for thousands of years have concealed it from the Christian and non-Jewish world. Teofito writes:
“THIS SECRET OF THE BLOOD IS NOT KNOWN TO ALL THE JEWS, BUT ONLY TO THE CHAKAM (doctors) OR THE RABBIS AND THE SCHOLARS, who therefore carry the title ‘Conservatori del mistero del sangue’ (Conservators of the mystery of blood!). They pass it on by word of mouth to the Jewish fathers. They in turn reveal it to their sons who regard this as a great honor. At the same time they make terrible threats of punishment if one of them betrays this secret...
“When I was 13 years old, recalls Teofito; mother took me aside, led me into a room, where nobody could listen and after he described to me the hatred of Christians, he taught me that God ordered the Christians to be slaughtered and to collect their blood...’My son,’ he said (as he kissed me): ‘With this confession I have placed my trust in you.’ With these words he put a crown on my head and explained to me the Blood Secret, adding that Jehovah had revealed it to the Jews and commanded them to practice it ...I was in the future, possessor of the most important secret of the Jewish religion...
“Thereafter followed the curses and threats of punishment if I should ever reveal this secret to anyone, neither my mother nor my sister nor brothers or future wife; but only to one of my future sons who was the most wise, eager, and most suitable. In this way the secret shall be inherited from father to son until the farthest descendant.”
This is a part of the monk and former Chief Rabbi Teofito’s confession. From other confessions and admissions there is a remarkable agreement on the following points:
1). The laws demand the Jews to butcher non-Jews from time to time. (The Laws of The Talmud and the Law of Human Sacrifice)
2). The sacrifice shall take place chiefly:
a. At the Purim Festival
b. At the Passover Festival
It is demanded of the Jews to butcher an adult Christian if possible, or a black non-Jew for the Purim and to butcher a child for the Passover. The child must not be over seven years old and must die in agony.
3). The blood of the victims must be violently drained. It is to be used at Passover in wine and in the Massen (bread). What this means is that a small part of the blood is mixed into the dough and the wine. The procedure is to be performed by the Jewish father.
4). The procedure takes place in the following manner: The father pours a few drops of fresh or dried and powdered blood into a glass, dips a finger of his left hand into it and sprinkles (blesses) everything which is on the table, saying: “Dam Issardia chynim heroff Jsyn prech harbe hossen mashus pohorus.” (Erod, VII, 12) Which translated is:
“We therefore beg God to send down the ten plagues upon all the enemies of the Jewish religion (This means the Christians. With this they dine and afterwards the father cries): ‘Sfach, chaba, moscho kol hagoym!’ Which translated: “Thus (like the child whose blood has been mixed in the bread and wine) may all Goyim burn in hell!” (This wicked Jewish ritual is suspiciously similar to Christian Communion. In this the wine is taken in place of the blood and the bread as the body. What Christians do symbolically, the Jews do in reality: this is the unique difference. But it is like all Jewish teachings, it is the reverse of what is taught by God Almighty and the Lord Jesus Christ in the Bible).
5). The ritual blood is also used other ways:
a. The young married couple is given a hard boiled egg which is seasoned with dried blood which as been pulverized.
b. It is also given to pregnant women in the same way in order to ease their child birth.
c. It is mixed with egg-white, put on a linen cloth and
placed on the chest of dead Jews so that they will enter heaven without atonement.
d. At circumcision powdered blood will be sprinkled on the wound so it will heal quickly.
e. Dip fruits or vegetables into it and then eat them, (Schuldran arch Orach cajjim 158,4) or
f. A dying or decrepit Jew can be saved with it. (Jore Deah 155,3)
THE JEWS HAVE A SUPERSTITION WHICH ORIGINATES FROM THE ORIENT. THEY BELIEVE THAT OLD PEOPLE CAN BECOME YOUNGER BY DRINKING THE BLOOD OF YOUNG CHILDREN.
6). The remainder of the blood is preserved with the greatest of care by the local rabbis and sold in small bottles by appointed wandering Jews at neighboring synagogues. This same rabbi certifies that the blood is genuine pure Christian blood.
7). The Ritual Murder and the Blood Mystery are acknowledge by all Talmudic Jews, and practiced whenever possible. The Jew believes that he will be “atoned” by it.
These are seven Jewish customs and regulations were established not only in the trials from Trent and Damascus, but in various trials and court cases which took place in different parts of the world throughout history. And of course they were completely independent of each other. This proves beyond a doubt their truth and validity.
Civilized people find this practice so abhorrent that they cannot believe it, despite the hundreds of pages of evidence against the Jews which are found in court records. Historical records for five thousand years have provided irrefutable proof of the blood guilt of the Jews.
As other people became more civilized, the blood rite became a symbolic one, and a symbolic form of blood, usually wine, was drunk during the ritual, while the barbaric practice of killing a victim was given up altogether. Only one group, the Jewish cult, has continued to practice the blood rite in modern times.
Authorities on the blood rite, such as the noted Catholic scholar, James E. Bulger, state that the Jews practice the blood drinking rite because they are a parasitic people who must partake of the blood of the gentile host if they are to continue to survive. Bulger also states that the drinking of blood is a rite of black magic which enables the Jewish rabbis to predict the future as the blood of their non-Jewish victim courses through their veins.
Therefore, Jewish leaders from time to time entice a non-Jewish child, preferably male, and from six to eight years old. According to Jewish ritual, the non-Jewish (preferably a Christian child) child must be perfectly formed, intelligent, and without blemish. He also must be younger than the age of puberty, because the Jews believe that the blood becomes impure after the beginning of puberty.
When the (Christian) child is enticed into the synagogue, or, if the Jews are under observation, into some more secret gathering place, the kidnaped child is tied down onto a table, stripped, and its body pierced with sharp ritual knives in the identical places where the nails entered the body of Christ on the stake. As the blood is drained into cups, the Jewish leaders raise the cups and drink from them, while the child slowly expires in an atmosphere of unrelieved horror.
The Jews call down curses upon Christ and on all the non-Jewish people, and celebrate their symbolic victory over them as they continue to drink the blood of the dying child. Only by performing this rite, so the Jews believe, can they continue to survive and prosper among their non-Jewish host.
The ancient Khazar Jews along with others of that Near East era followed a common custom of human sacrifice. The practice was to burn a young person upon an altar called a Tophet. The Old Testament of the Bible mentions this practice and condemns it. Around the Tophet altar, drums would be beaten loudly to drown out the cries of the children being burned alive.
In the days of Ancient Israel the Priests of Baal would blow trumpets to drown out their screams.
The Carthaginians also were worshipers of Baal and sacrificed children on a massive scale. When faced with defeat in Syracuse in 310 B.C., they cast the sons of 500 nobles into a fiery pit, or Tophet, from a scaffold shaped in the likeness of the god Baal. In other words, the Jews have a god which finds blood pleasing. In the words of Mr. Leese,
"What sort of a people is this whose god finds the blood obtained from mutilation of human genital organs as 'pleasing?'"
Even though God commanded circumcision, there is no way a reading of Scripture shows that God intended that the procedure turn into a bloody ritual. Besides that, it seems apparent that when Christ nailed the blood ordinances to the cross, he also nailed the circumcision to the cross.
"Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing." (Galatians 5:2)
Make no mistake about it, THE GOD OF THE JEWS IS NOT THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB/ISRAEL. And if it were the same God ‑‑ the manner in which the Jews worship is administered is an abomination in the eyes of the Lord our God. Many people think this sort of thing may have happened in the past but did not exist after the Babylonian captivity.
However, from the account of Dio Cassius in the 78th Book of his history, Chapter 32, written in 117 A.D. comes the following:
"Then the Jews in Cyrene [on the modern Tripoli coast of North Africa] choosing as their leader one Andreas, slew the Romans and Greeks, and DEVOURED [ate] their bodies, drank the blood, clothed themselves in the flayed skins, and sawed many in half from the head downwards; some they threw to wild beasts and others were compelled to fight in single combat, so that in all 220,000 were killed. In Egypt they did many similar things, also in Cyprus, led by one of them named Artemion; and there another 240,000 were slain."
Genesis 9:4: “But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.”
Among the tribes of the Scythians, the Massagatae attracted the notice of all the ancient historians by their numbers and warlike ability. Those who described them in more detail, divided them into the Massagatae and Thyssagetae. The Getae part of the name soon evolved into Goth. The Massagatae were the Greater Goths and the Thyssagetae were the Lesser Goths. Thus we already find among the Scythians names we can identify as the people who later conducted the great migrations into Europe. The Goths as we know, were later called Ostrogoths, meaning East Goths and Visigoths, meaning West Goths.
Now to go back a few centuries, the Sacae were allies of the Medes and Persians in the attack upon Babylon in 536 B.C. Remember that Yahweh had said that Israel was; “My battle axe and weapons of war, for with thee will I break in pieces the nations and with thee will I destroy kingdoms.”
Yahweh had used Scythian Israel to maintain constant war against Assyria for nearly a century, until Assyria was too weakened to resist the Medes and Persians. Then Yahweh used Scythian Israel, the Sacae, to help in the conquest of Babylon when its time had come. Later, King Cyrus of Persia was foolish enough to try to conquer his former allies the Sacae, but he was killed in battle. King Darius also tried to conquer them, but they being a nomadic people, retreated before his massive armies until he gave up and retired.
Professor George Rawlinson says that the original development of the Indo-European language took place in Armenia which you will remember, was at that time occupied by Scythian Israel. Certainly from these people we can trace the introduction of this language into Europe.
This powerful and increasingly numerous people thereafter spread farther north, both east and west of the Caspian Sea. To the west of it, they penetrated into the Volga and Don River valleys as the Sauromatians and the Royal Scyths, nomadic peoples.
To reach these lands, they had come up through the Caucasus mountains by a great pass which is today occupied by the Georgian military road. Perhaps the communists have changed the name of this pass in recent years, but from ancient times, until within our own life times, this pass was known as the Pass of Israel. The White Race of Europe is often called Caucasian because the ancestors of many of them did come out of the Caucasus mountains.
When Alexander the Great began his great marauding expedition across western Asia and as far as India, he had to skirt the edge of the lands held by the Scythians. In his limitless vanity and ambition, he wanted to conquer them also. It is recorded that their ambassadors said that they would never surrender to him, that they were nomadic peoples who, if they could not resist, could retreat indefinitely before his armies. They had no wealthy cities for him to conquer and loot. Alexander invaded their lands long enough to fight one severe battle with them, defeating the Scythian forces he met. This was evidently just a lesson to them not to attack the flanks of his forces, for he led his forces out of their territory and never returned to attack.
Remember, Israel is Yahweh’s battle axe and weapons of war. They had already weakened Assyria and as allies of the Medes and Persians, had helped overthrow Assyria and Babylon. They had beaten off attempts of the Persians to conquer them. The article “Scythians,” Chambers Encyclopedia (1927) records:
“The Scythians, after about 128 B.C., overran Persia, routed several Persian armies and levied tribute from the Persian kings. During the first century before the first century after Christ, hordes of Scythians, having overthrown the Bactrian and Indo-Greek dynasties of Afghanistan and India, invaded northern India and there they maintained themselves with varying fortune for vive centuries longer. The Jats of India and the Rajputs have been both been assigned the Scythian ancestry.”
Madison Grant writes;
“Ancient Bactria maintained its Nordic and Aryan aspect long after Alexander’s time and did not become Mogolized and receive the sinister name of Turkestan until the seventh century A.D. The Sakke were the blond peoples who carried the Aryan language to India.”
A land so vast and not the original home of the Israelite Scythians, but already having some inhabitants when they were settled there, must of course show varying types of people. The Nordic, or Aryan Israelite Scythians, conquered these other races. While some speak of a Mongoloid type found in some part of Scythia, ancient writers pretty well agree that the dominant Sakka or Massagatae Scythians were a Nordic people. Dr. Hans Gunter, professor at Berlin University, in his “Racial Elements of European History,” published in the 1920s writes:
“The investigations into the traces left behind them by that wide spread Nordic people, the Sacae (Scythians), with its many tribes, are well worthy of attention. They had been living on the steppes of southeastern Europe and spread as far as Turkestan and Afghanistan and even to the Indus.”
The ancient writers such as Polemon of Llium, Galionos, Clement of Alexandria, and Adamantios, state that the Sacae were like the Celts and Germans and describe them as ruddy-fair. The Scythian tribe of the Alans are also described as having a Nordic appearance. Ammianus, about 300-400 A.D., calls them
“ALMOST ALL TALL AND HANDSOME, WITH THEIR HAIR ALMOST YELLOW AND A FIERCE LOOK.”
We have seen that the names of the Massagatae and the Thyssagetae evolved into Goths, the Ostrogoths (or east Goths) and Visgoths (or west Goths). The historian Ptolemy, who died about 150 A.D., mentions a Scythian people descended from the Sakae, called Saxons who had come from Media. Albinus, who lived in the first century B.C., also says,
“The Saxons were descended from the ancient Sacae in Asia and in the process of time they came to be called Saxons,”
Prideaux reports that the Cimbrians (or Cumbrians) (or Cumbrians) came from between the Black and Caspian Seas and that with them came the Angli.
We are now well into established European history. By the beginning of the 4th century A.D., many of the Goths were already Christians. In the 4th century, there were several collisions between Visigoths and Rome and in 410 A.D., the Visgoths became the masters of Italy and captured Rome.
Later, they moved on into southern France and northern Spain where they settled permanently. The Ostrogoths settled in what is modern Hungary about 455 A.D., under Theodoric the Great. They conquered Italy in 493 A.D., and set up an Ostrogoth kingdom in Italy which however, was short lived. Their descendants are the fair skinned BLOND Italians of northern Italy. However, the Goths had ended the Roman empire. Yahweh’s battle axe again destroying the kingdoms of the Babylonian order of empires.
The Agnli and the Saxons moved up the Danube valley and settled in Germany and along the Baltic shores, as is well known. From there the Jutes, Angles and Saxons colonized England after the Roman legions were withdrawn in 408 A.D.
Actually, the earliest waves of migration penetrated to the farthest edges of the European continent, partly because they could move through nearly empty land, without meeting any people strong enough to effectively resist them. It was partly because they were pushed farther by the later waves of Israelite migration coming behind them. Hence, we find the settlement of the Scandinavian peninsula pretty well completed before the arrival of the Jutes, Angles and Saxons along the southern shore of the Baltic Sea.
The tribes that settled along the shores of the Baltic were a great maritime people, as some of the Israelites had been even when still in Palestine, as Yahweh had prophesied. The Jutes, Angles and Saxons came from within the Baltic Sea, but their ocean borne raids on England were heavy and continuous. Later, by invitation of the British, they settled along the eastern shores, in East Anglia, Mercia, Northunbria, Sussex, Wessex, Essex and Kent.
The first century before and the first century after Yahshua, hordes of Scythians, having overthrown the Bactrian and Indo-Greek dynasties of Afghanistan and India, invaded northern India and there they maintained themselves with varying fortune for five centuries longer. The Jats of India and the Rajputs have been assigned the Sythian ancestry.
William the Conqueror invaded England in 1066 A.D., with the Normans. They were actually Vikings who had settled on the coast of France in the province of Normandy, Normn really being derived from Norseman. So we see that the migrations of Israel, first into Scythia, into their present European homelands, is a well established historical fact. There is also the fascinating story of the early migrations by sea.
However, Daniel told us that knowledge would increase in the latter days:
"But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased." (Daniel 12:4)
Also, Daniel tells us that many things will be kept secret until the latter days:
"And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: FOR THE WORDS ARE CLOSED UP AND SEALED TILL THE TIME OF THE END." (Daniel 12:9)
Many of these recent archeological discoveries combined with secular and Biblical history give us a shockingly different perspective of the ancient world in general and ancient Israel in particular. In this chapter we will attempt to show you evidence which will prove ancient Israel was an empire. It had a homeland in Palestine, and a far-flung empire much the same as Britain did until just a few decades ago. Britain once ruled over a far-flung empire from a small homeland, located in the British Isles.
In The History of the Jews (Read that Israelites, as Dr. Margoliouth was a Jew, so he would naturally say Jew instead of Israel) in Great Britain, Dr. Moses Margoliouth, 1846, p. 12, he states that Israel was "trained to be a wandering nation" with "a peculiar migratory disposition" (The History of the Jews in Great Britain, Dr. Moses Margoliouth, 1846, p. 13) in preparation for "their mighty dispersion" over the earth. Israel's progenitor, Abraham, was "a type of the same," or example to those who followed after. Not only that, but Israel was "trained to be a maritime nation," as well, and "the first colonizing expeditions were performed by water, not by land."
"Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 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." (Genesis 12:1-3)
These statements have proven true in history. Other scholars (such as Aylett Sammes in the 17th century), have noted the Hebrew‑Phoenician language of the early colonists of Britain, yet want to give the Phoenicians all of the credit by saying that the Hebrews were never known to colonize!
On pages 16 to 21, Pastor Margoliouth comments on this Hebrew‑Phoenician connection with ancient Britain, and says,
"...the conclusion is inevitable, the Israelites must have visited the western countries in the days of Solomon." (see also page 31)
Israel and Phoenicia both spoke the same language in ancient times, but since the nation of Israel far outnumbered the Phoenicians, it is obvious that most
"Phoenician" colonization was in reality Israelite. An excellent and authoritative discussion of this subject is covered in Stephen M. Collins recent book, "The Ten Tribes of Israel...Found!"
Pastor Margoliouth sums up this issue well in saying,
"I see no reason for disbelieving that there were [Israelites] in Spain in the time of David and Solomon ‑ startling as it may appear...there existed colonies of Hebrews all over the world, in the reigns of David and Solomon..." (page 30)
A fascinating discussion of the language connection with ancient Israel appears beginning on page 32. The name "Britain" itself "is a corruption of the Hebrew words Barat Anach," or islands of tin. We read that
"an eminent Cornish scholar of last century, who devoted a great deal of his time to prove the affinity between the Hebrew and Welsh languages, observes, 'It would be difficult to adduce a single article or form of construction in the Hebrew grammar, but the same is to be found in Welsh, and that there are many whole sentences in both languages exactly the same in the very words.'"
Two columns of quotations follow, showing the connection between the Hebrew and Welsh languages, after which Pastor Margoliouth asks, "where could [the early Britons] have got hold of such whole Hebrew, purely Hebrew, sentences?"
Proper names are next referenced. Kings of ancient Britain often had Hebrew names, such as Solomon (three different kings!), Daniel, Abraham, Asaph, and Adam,
"from which circumstance some antiquarians attempted to prove that the Welsh are descendants of the children of Israel."
Pastor Margoliouth expresses that he is being "very moderate" in establishing that at the very least, ancient Israelites had been "mixing with the Britons" in forming the foundation of the modern British people.
Biblical prophetic references to Britain are discussed beginning on page 37. "The command is to declare the Lord's purpose concerning Israel" in "The isles afar off," in Jeremiah 31:10.
These "were supposed by the ancients to have been Britannia, Scotia, and Hibernia (Ireland)." Again, in Jeremiah 31:7,
"For thus saith the Lord, sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations...save thy people, the remnant of Israel."
Pastor Margoliouth avers that,
"The prophet seems to behold Britain in his vision. There can be no doubt that Britain is now the chief of the nations. Her monarch's territory is one upon which the sun never sets."
Yet a third Biblical term is also tied to the British isles.
"The expression, 'The end of the world,' mentioned in Isaiah 62:11, is also supposed to mean Britain, which was a common appellation for this island in remote ages."
In the year 1670, a contractor digging the basement for a house in Mark‑lane, London, came across an old underground Roman‑era vault beneath the pavement. The vault was sealed with a large old Roman‑style brick "of curious red clay, and in bas‑relief on the front hath the figure of Samson putting fire to the foxes' tails, and driving them into a field of corn."
An antiquarian of the time, writing about the find, asked,
"How the story of Samson should be known to the Romans, much less to the Britains, so early after the propagation of the gospel, seems to be a great doubt, except, it should be said, that some Jews, after the final destruction of Jerusalem, should wander into Britain..."
Lastly, the spread of the Gospel into Britain during the time of the Apostles, is a matter of historical record.
"As to St. Paul's being one of the first heralds of salvation in this island, there can scarcely be any doubt on the subject. Indeed, if we do not believe it we must make up our minds to reject all the hitherto authentic historians."
Dr. Burgess, late Bishop of Sarum, has shown that St. Paul laid the foundation of Britain's national church. Clemens Romanus, "who was an intimate friend and fellow‑laborer of St. Paul, declares in his Epistle to the Corinthians, that 'St. Paul having been a herald of the Gospel both in the east and in the west, he received the noble crown of faith, after teaching righteousness to the whole world, and gone even. to the utmost bounds of the west'; an expression, well‑known to every scholar, that always designated, or at least included, the British Islands."
Theodoret, a learned church historian of the fourth century, 'mentions Britain among the nations which had received the Gospel.' He states that "Paul carried salvation to the islands which lie in the ocean." Jerome soon after said that "St. Paul's diligence in preaching extended as far as the earth itself." Venentius Fortunatus, fifth century Bishop of Poitiers, said, "Paul having crossed the ocean, landed and preached in the countries which the Britons inhabit."
Pastor Margoliouth observes that "the greatest men...who spent a great part of their lives in such researches... the learned Ussher, Parker, Stillingfleet, Cave, Camden, Gibson, Godwin, Rapin, and a great many others ‑ have clearly shown that St. Paul was the founder of the British church...yea, the government of the British Christian Church was established and set in proper scriptural order by [Israelites] themselves, be they who they may ‑ Peter, Paul, Simon Zealotes, Joseph of Arimathea."
Many of these recent archeological discoveries combined with secular and Biblical history give us a shockingly different perspective of the ancient world in general and ancient Israel in particular.
Following we will attempt to show you evidence which will prove ancient Israel was an empire. It had a homeland in Palestine, and a far-flung empire much the same as Britain did until just a few decades ago. Britain once ruled over a far-flung empire from a small homeland, located in the British Isles.
In the years from about 1050-850 B.C. Israel was the dominant power of the world with an empire that rivaled and perhaps exceeded that of the Caesars. The empire included areas of the world now inhabited by the Israelite people and that included portions of North America. We full well understand this is a bold statement, but the evidence will follow. In this study we will examine the real extent of Israel's power and empire in the ancient world; the Israelite presence in North America with considerable specifics.
The impact of the drought of Elijah's day on the weakening of Israel and the rise of Cartage, which we will show was an Israelite colony. Cartage continued Israel's presence in the New World, very possibly even during Christ's lifetime here on earth.
The time of Israel's greatness really began with King David and its rise to empire status. This happened in about the year 1050 B.C. 2 Samuel 8 discusses David's defeat of the Philistines, Moab, Amalek, Edom, and the Syrians for example lost more than 80,000 men in just three battles. (2 Samuel 8:5, 13, 10:18) That is more men than the United States lost in the 14 years of the Vietnam War. To give you a perspective of the ferocity of the battles.
1 Chronicles 21 shows that David could mobilize over 1½ million men. With an army of that size you are not insignificant, not even in this age, this day and time. In 1 Chronicles 18:3 it states the border of his dominion went to the Euphrates River which bordered the area of Assyria and Babylon; or Mesopotamia who viewed David as an upstart rival.
The Phoenicians were the city states of Tyre and Sidon, and had a far flung empire on land and sea. They were the best sailors in the ancient world at that time, and they saw the rise of David and Israel and made an alliance with them.
They were a common race of Semitic people; they also had a common language. There were only dialectic differences between Hebrew and the Phoenician tongue. 1 Kings 17:9-16 relates where Elijah met with a Phoenician or Zidonan widow, and they had immediate discourse, with no difficulty at all in communication.
King Hiram the king of Tyre made David a palace and they became very close allies as 1 King 5:1 shows. The Israelite Phoenician alliance was an ancient super power, with all twelve tribes of Israel united they sat astride the area where three continents met; they had the world's greatest navy in the Phoenicians combined with David's one and one-half million man army. And David was not the least bit reluctant to use it.
They were challenged by Assyria and Mesopotamia, which is almost totally unknown by most and yet it is related in the Bible. There was a revolt in Amon which is a pretext for war between many nations and the Israelites.
It is discussed in 1 Chronicles 19 and 20 in some detail. There were 32 thousands chariots from Mesopotamia alone (1 Chronicles 19:7) that came to fight David's army in this battle. There was also an unknown number of men from Mesopotamia and Syria which included a number of different people which fought with Ammon against Israel.
In verse 9 we can see it was a national effort with a number of different nations to destroy Israel as it states their kings came to watch the battle. "And the children of Ammon came out, and put the battle in array before the gate of the city: AND THE KINGS THAT WERE COME WERE BY THEMSELVES IN THE FIELD." (1 Chronicles 19:9)
So, we can clearly see, this was not just a mercenary effort, this was a matter of national commitment against Israel. Israel won the first round and also the second which left them with no one in the area to challenge them. If you will look at Psalm 83, which was likely written by David at this time where he lists many nations that come to help the children of Lot, which also included Ammon to destroy Israel from off the face of the earth.
"Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, COME, AND LET US CUT THEM OFF FROM BEING A NATION; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: The tabernacles of EDOM, and the ISHMAELITES; of MOAB, and THE HAGARENES; GEBAL, and AMMON, and AMALEK; the PHILISTINES with THE INHABITANTS OF TYRE; ASSUR also is joined with them: they have holpen THE CHILDREN OF LOT. Selah. Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison: Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth. Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna: Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession. O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind. As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire; So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm. Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Lord. Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish: That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth." (Psalm 83:1-18)
Secular history has recorded that Assyria's Empire went into eclipse or confusion, some encyclopedias call it, between 1100-900 B.C. Halley's Bible Handbook comments on it also, and states that ancient Israel was much stronger than Assyria, Babylon or Egypt.
This is the same period as Israel's golden age under David and Solomon. And is glossed over in almost all historical texts, if they even cover it at all. What happened to Assyria? It was defeated badly in a war against Israel's army, as we learn from 1 Chronicles and Psalm 83. The texts of ancient history will not tell you this nor will it give great credibility as the Bible is the Word of God. Assyria and other nations had provoked Ammon to start this war, and this will give you a little indication of how large an area that David ruled.
In Psalm 83 he named the nations that became a part of this war, which included Assyria and in all likelihood became a vassal state to David. It included the Ishmaelites, which included the Arabian Peninsula and people we don't know where they lived in the east, so we really don't know how large an are David actually ruled. But he did rule from Egypt to somewhere about the middle of the modern nation of Iran. Ether directly or through vassal states as a result of that war. But Israel was the dominant super power of the ancient world at this time.
Is there evidence of an Israelite Empire? The answer is Yes! But the secular historians will rarely call it an Israelite Empire, they will call it a Phoenician Empire. Most people who do not realize the difference between Judah and Israel balk at this major role for Israel because they think the Jews were the Israelites and the Jews have always been few in number, but they don't realize that the men from Judah were only a small part of David's army at this time. It is true that David was of the tribe of Judah but he, also, had eleven other tribes to provide manpower.
The Phoenician Empire is credited by historians as being dominant in the Mediterranean Sea; as being present in substantial numbers in the British Isles, the West Coast of Europe and Africa in the period of about 1100-800 B.C. and they are not at all bashful in calling it a Phoenician Empire.
This coincides with the exact time that Assyria was put down and the Bible tells us that David had defeated the Assyrians. It coincides with Israel's greatness and the allegiance of the Phoenician city Israelites; show Phoenicia took pains to join with them because they did not wish to be their enemy. 1 Chronicles 22 relates that David accumulated for the Temple of God iron and brass beyond calculation. (1 Chronicles 22:3)
Warrner Keller in his book "The Bible is History" states:
"Israel was using the Bessemer system of smelting, which was not re-discovered until recently in the modern era...Essian Gebar was the Pittsburgh of ancient Palestine."
Nowhere else in the fertile crescent which includes Mesopotamia could such a large smelting facility be found. We see by this that Israel was not just an agriculture only nation but they were also the industrial power house of the ancient world.
Dr. Berry Fells book "Bronze Age America" cites evidence that ½ billions of copper ore was taken from mines near Lake Superior in North America, in roughly 2000-1000 B.C.
The dates include the time of David's reign, at the tail end of it, as the ore apparently ran out for they have no evidence that it was mined after that. It could be that the Israelites simply worked the mines to death, or to where they could not be mined economically at that point.
Which Fell states that this New World copper mine output there is no evidence what became of it. There is no evidence it was used in this hemisphere at all. And they have no idea where the copper came from which was smelted in Palestine during this time.
Putting this evidence together and one comes up with the assumption that this copper was shipped from North America to Palestine by boat and was used by Israel in its huge smelting facilities in Palestine. The Phoenician/Israelite presence in America has abundantly shown to be real. At this point, we must, in all fairness, present just one of the many stories which abound which make reference to our Israel ancestors coming to America thousands of years before Columbus.
The following is taken from an article in National Geographic, December 1977:
"The New World: Who, from the Old first touched its shore? Historians held for centuries that it was Christopher Columbus. By current consensus, it was Norse voyagers of a thousand years ago. But perhaps it was a group of shadowy, yet very real, Irish seafaring monks who predated even the Vikings by more than four centuries. In the great pantheon of New World explorers no name is more intriguing, or more clouded in controversy, than that of Ireland's St. Brendan.
“His legend, today more tantalizing than ever, has persisted through the centuries in the form of a Christians imram, an Irish saga: Navigatio Sancti Brendani Abbatis, Voyage of Saint Brendan the Abbot. With 17 fellow monks, it relates, Brendan sailed to Terra Repromissionis Sanctorum, THE LAND PROMISED TO THE SAINTS, SOMEWHERE BEYOND THE FAR REACHES OF THE WESTERN ATLANTIC. Was the Promised Land North America?
“Did St. Brendan actually reach it in the sixth century? Neither history nor archeology offers proof." (National Geographic, Vol. 152, No. 6, December 1977, pp. 769)
This statement is totally untrue, and I believe the publishers of National Geographic knew it at the time of the publication. Most of us have read (from reputable history books) of the adventures of Lief Eriksson and his party in the founding of Vinland circa A.D. 800-1400 in the area of the St. Lawrence River in the North-eastern United States and Canada.
Although they predated the Columbus voyage by many centuries, were the expeditions of Lief Eriksson the first discovery of what is now known as the United States? There were Christians living in America over 100 years before Columbus arrived in the Caribbean. The official historians of this country have known this for many, many years. Yet, none of this is discussed as a national heritage. Why is this?
Those of us who are interested in finding petroglyphs, or ancient symbols and pictures engraved on stones, have wondered about the meaning of them. All we could do was wonder and speculate until the science of deciphering ancient and unknown languages was developed. The science is called Epigraphics and it has been developed into a rather sophisticated science. Symbols, for example, mean something, but what?
EPIGRAPHICS: Until a few years ago geologists told us that the numerous short and repetitive lines inscribed on rocks found in the Northeastern United States and Canada were simply scratches made from the movement of ice and rocks during the recent ice-age. Because of Epigraphics, we now know that it was a language and it has been deciphered.
THE CELTS: This language is that of the Celts from Ireland, Scotland, England, France and the Rhineland country of Germany. The language dates from long before Christ and was in use in Ireland and England at the time of Celtic Druids. It is called Ogam script and has been found all over America, from the West Indies to Newfoundland and west into Oregon and British Columbia. We know that Julius Caesar described the vessels that the Celts had built and used.
In Book III of his De Bello Gallico he described these vessels against which his small, puny (by comparison), ships of the Roman fleet fought. He described them as being capable of sailing "upon the vast open sea." This is exactly what they did. It appears that there were many different expeditions and migrations by the Celts during the period of many centuries before Christ until circa 400-800 A.D. They came, not only just once to colonize, but they came and returned to Europe on a repetitive basis.
THE VIKINGS: The Vikings were here in America when King Woden-lithi sailed the Atlantic seventeen centuries before Christ and entered the St. Lawrence River. He established a trading post at a site near where Toronto now stands.
It became a religious and commercial center that is now known as Petroglyph Park at Peterborough, Canada. King Woden-lithi's home was in Norway. He remained in Canada for five months, from April to September and traded his woven fabrics for copper ingots obtained from the European settlers.
He called these people Wal, which is a word cognate with Wales and Welsh. He gave these Celts his religious beliefs, the ability to measure woven cloth and an astronomical observatory for measuring the Nordic calendar and for determining the dates of the pagan Yale and Ishtar festivals. Remember, this was seventeen centuries (1700-years) before Christ!
OGAM SCRIPT: The Celts were already here when King Woden-lithi arrived. What was their written language like? We have already shown that they wrote with the Ogam script which can be described simply as an alphabet, comprising fifteen consonants and five vowels, together with a few other signs representing double letters such as diphthongs. The letters are made by inscribing single parallel strokes placed in sets of one to five, in position above, across, or below a guide line.
THE LANGUAGES: But what words were made from this Ogam alphabet? Here again the science of Epigraphics gives us the answer. We know that there is no language of any of the American Indians that is made up of the Greek language. And yet the ancient Celts in the area of the St. Lawrence River spoke a language that was directly derived from the Greek! As we shall see, the different Celts in America spoke yet other languages!
The type of Greek that was spoken by the Celts of the area is known as Ptolemaic which means that it is a dialect of Greek that was spoken in Egypt, Palestine and the other countries in the area that Alexander conquered.
Alexander forced upon the area his idea of one-world government, one-world people, one-world religion and one-world language. It was this Ptolemaic dialect that Alexander forced upon the citizens of the area. The dialect was composed of Greek, Egyptian and Aramaic. This is why Jesus spoke Aramaic and Greek, instead of Hebrew. We will study the effect that Alexander had on Israel and Christianity in a future lesson.
The obvious question from the previous paragraph is, who were the Celts? Did the Celts from Iberia (THE SPANISH PENINSULA) and the Rhineland go to Egypt and Palestine and learn the Greek spoken language at the time of Alexander or did the Israelites (NOT JEWS) learn the Greek and Aramaic when they were in Palestine and then go to the new world to escape the dictatorship of Alexander? Remember, Israel lost the knowledge of ancient Hebrew (not modern Yiddish) before and during the time of Alexander.
The language of the Celts who were already here in the St. Lawrence River Valley when King Woden-lithe arrived has since been lost. Why has the language disappeared? This is probably at least partly because through the subsequent years they intermixed with other peoples and in the process the language was lost.
It doesn't take much to lose a language. Notice the difference between American English and the English language spoken in England. But that doesn't account for the fact that a race of people totally vanished from the continent. Some of the Ogam Script is with the Gaelic influence.
The Gaelic language came from the highlands of Scotland. In the New England area, artifacts such as grave headstones have been found, all with Ogam script in Gaelic script. (To this date no one has found the remains of the bodies because of the acid content of the soil which destroys all remains in less than 100 years.
Additionally, our early American settlers removed the headstones from the burial sites and placed them in hedgerows along the sides of the fields and so the headstones are not now located near the actual graves) The Celts with the Gaelic dialect came from the highlands of Scotland. According to the Scottish Declaration of Independence written by Robert Bruce and his noblemen, the Scotland people came from ancient Israel through the Rhineland area of France and Germany and then through Iberia or Spain.
THE MARINERS FROM TARSHISH: Tarshish was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of all kind of riches; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they traded in thy fairs. (Ezekiel 27:12) The Celts were well established in foreign trade.
In 1780, Ezra Stiles, who later became the president of Yale College, found and recorded a Tartessian inscription on a rock along the seashore near Mount Hope Bay, Rhode Island. The deeply cut inscription clearly shows the outline of a typical high-sterned ship from Tarshish. Under the outline of the ship are the words in Tartessian (Tarshish) Punic, "Mariners of Tarshish this rock proclaims."
Near Union, New Hampshire, another Tartessian inscription was found with a similar Tarshish ship hull and the words, "VOYAGERS FROM TATSHISH THIS STONE PROCLAIMS."
On Mohegan Island, off the coast of Maine, is, in Ogam script in Gaelic dialect, an inscription showing that the Celts traded with the traders from Tarshish. It is obvious that the mariners from Tarshish were not residents of the area as were the Celts. They were trading with the Celts for their furs and raw materials from the mining done by the Celts.
Thus, there was a lively trade being conducted between the Japhetic sons of Tarshish (Genesis 10:4) and the Celtic sons of Shem. Some of the trading was done with goods in exchange for the furs and metals of the Celts. But there was also an exchange for coins. It seems that modern historians won't believe the facts of history such as the Ogam inscriptions.
In the days of early America, the extensive study of Latin and Roman history was required for a college degree. Thus, the people of America readily knew that Europeans came to America and lived in America much earlier than Christopher Columbus.
But later, from American history books, our school children were taught the Columbus mystique and they were taught that the world was considered flat by all educated people until Columbus discovered America! All of those Roman coins that were discovered were ignored and it has remained that way until very recently. As we continue our studies, we will realize why the truth was buried.
In 1961, Frederick J. Pohl raised the nagging question of the Roman coins in his book Atlantic Crossings Before Columbus. He describes notable finds of Roman coins in the United States. Other scientists have carried on the task of proving the European travels to this continent long before Columbus. One of the notable men in this field is Professor Cyclone Covey of Wake Forest University. Much will be discussed about his investigations later in this lesson.
From 400 B.C. to 1100 A.D., the Western world realized six maritime powers. They all came out of the Mediterranean area except for the last one. They are, in order of their appearance, (1) the Carthaginians of Tunisia; (2) the Greeks and Libyans of North Africa; (3) the Romans; (4) the Byzantine Greeks who succeeded Rome; (5) the Islamic powers of North Africa and Asia; and (6) the Norse sea-rovers.
Although the Celts were never realized as a maritime power, since they were a people scattered over many countries, their ocean-going ships were among the best. These ships were huge in comparison to the Roman ships.
They were two thousand tons in capacity as compared to about four hundred tons of the average Roman ship. The ships that the uncle of Jesus, Joseph of Arimathea, used to haul lead and tin from the Glastonbury area of England for sale to the Romans were Celtic in design and operation. Again, Julius Caesar spoke very highly of the sea-going prowess of the Celts and their ships. Throughout this period, each of these maritime powers sent ships all over the high seas and to America.
But it was the Libyans who transcended all of the others in the span of their voyage. A Libyan, named Eratosthenes of Cyrene, accurately calculated the earth's circumference. He reasoned that the earth's oceans had to be continuous and consequently a ship could sail around the world in either direction and return to the starting point. The date was approximately 239 B.C.!
Eratosthenes developed the system of the meridian circles of the map of the globe. The meridian circles are simply the points on the globe where the USN is directly overhead at noon at the local time. He set these meridian circles in a grid in such a way that a mariner could accurately locate his position. He drew the primary meridian circle to pass through Alexandria.
The Libyans then set sail in their ocean-going vessels to prove that Eratosthenes was right. Their ships were equipped with magnetic compasses. Their compass consisted of a ceramic bowl with the compass points engraved around the edge. A lodestone (a strongly magnetic variety of the mineral magnetie) was floated on the water in the bowl.
Sometimes, a magnetized iron strip was suspended in the bowl. They also had a device for navigation that was the forerunner of the modern sextant. The Libyans traveled eastward, through the Suez Canal that King Darius had built, then sailed down the Red Sea, and then around the tip of India, through the Indonesian straits and then into the Pacific Ocean. They arrived on the West Coast of America, disembarked and traveled inland to Nevada.
These ancient Libyans settled in the arid Nevada country because it was very similar to their own home country. In various locations in Nevada are petroglyphs, written in Aramaic-Libyan and Celto-Gaelic which reflect their mariner skills. There is a map of North America, showing the outline of both coasts from the Hudson Bay country of Canada to Panama in the South.
It was obviously taken from one of their meridian circle navigation charts that Eratosthenes developed. In addition, examples of their mathematics is displayed along with oceanography. Their alphabet was written in stone for us to see. Astronomy as a science is displayed.
Remember, before the fall of the Roman Empire, the Center of Western Civilization rested along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. The modern day epigraphic scientists are puzzled as to what happened to all of these people, from the Celts, to the Carthaginians, to the Libyans and all the other original settlers who have come to this land. Certainly educated people in the sciences and mathematics lived here many years ago, that is now obvious. But when the American colonists arrived, the natives had no written language nor any knowledge of higher education.
For example, the Paiute and Shoshone tribesmen of Nevada were asked where all of the petroglyphs we now know to have been scribed by the Libyans came from, they could tell the archaeologists and epigraphists nothing except that neither they nor their forebears had cut them.
However, some of the methods and style of living that were taught by these ancient settlers have come down through the centuries by the indigenous peoples who were here and then remained after the mysterious disappearance. For example, in the modern, Libyan North African region there are two Distinct ecological groups.
1). The first is the modern Berber who is of lighter skin with obvious and European features with many having blond hair and blue eyes. He prefers to live in the mountainous regions where there is more water and better soil. He is an agriculturist and he builds his home pueblo style out of sun-dried mud which he calls in Arabic attobi which in America is called adobe.
Their buildings are multi-level with the floors and ceilings strengthened with wooden beams which project beyond the outer walls. His dress code calls for the women not to wear the face veil but to tattoo their chins. The mens custom was to cover their heads and faces with a scarf-like cloth, showing only their eyes to strangers. Even today, these modern Berbers still speak the Berber language which came to them from their Celto-Iberian background.
2). The second ecological group is the Arabs. They are nomadic, moving their herds from place to place in the lowlands. They live in tents. The women cover their heads with veils and are not tattooed. The men do not veil the face. Their language is Arabic.
In the Peabody Museum of Harvard University are ancient bowls made by these Libyan mariners who built their temporary colonies in the Southwestern United States. The bowls very clearly show a man and woman painted on the sides of each. The women have no veil but have their chins tattooed.
The men have the Berber type of scarf covering their faces with only the eyes showing! Beyond a doubt, these people were a part of the Libyan expeditions into the Western United States. They, too, suddenly disappeared in the 10th to 12th century A.D., after having been here from about 500 B.C. All of these people abandoned their towns and simply vanished.
The ancient Berbers were of Celto-Iberian origin. They spoke a Gaelic Celto-Iberian language. When we again return to the Scottish Declaration of Independence and read that they traveled through Iberia (THE SPANISH PENINSULA) on their way to Scotland and Ireland, it would account for the Celto-Iberian-Gaelic dialect. It is in this language that the great majority of the petroglyphs are written. It is obvious that the Libyan Berbers associated with the Celts of the Eastern and Northern United States during the apex of their civilization here.
It is apparent that they had a flourishing trade with their home countries of Europe. Not only did they travel to and from Europe on occasion in their own ships, they conducted commerce with the traders from Tarshish and Cartage. Just as the Celts in the Glastonbury and Avalon areas of England mined for tin and lead and shipped the finished metal to Rome in Joseph of Aremathea's ships, the same Celts conducted mining operations in America and either sold or traded their metal with Europe. But it all vanished around the end of the first millennium A.D.
Now back to where we left off in our story, as related in National Geographics. "Early map makers and explorers gave credence to the legend. Place-names from the Navigatio appear on later charts, and early navigators sought vainly for 'St. Brendan's Isle.' Fact or fantasy, the Navigatio had incalculable impact on the great European voyages of discovery, INCLUDING THAT OF COLUMBUS.
“According to the legend, St. Brendan and his fellow monks set sail from Ireland in a leather-hulled curragh; this same type of boat, now covered with tarred canvas, is still used by Irish fishermen. The voyage lasted seven years and introduced the monks to such wonders as demons who hurled fire at them, a floating crystal column, and a sea creature as great as an island. Scholars wonder today: Might they have been volcanic eruptions...an iceberg...a whale? Finally, Brendan and his shipmates reached the Promised Land, a huge, lush island divided by a mighty river.
“Soon afterward they sailed home to Ireland, where Brendan died. There the legend of St. Brendan ends, to be given new vitality in the 1970's by a real-life sequel. In the following article, British author and explorer Timothy Severin recounts his epic Atlantic crossing aboard a leather boat. In proving that such a long-ago voyage could have been made, Tim Severin and his crew have brought one of history's most intriguing takes a giant step closer to the realm of possibility. -- THE EDITOR." (National Geographic, Vol. 152, No. 6, December 1977. p. 769)
When David died as the world emperor, he was ruling over the Mediterranean Sea in conjunction with the Phoenicians; he ruled over conquered territory from Egypt somewhere in the interior of Asia. And Israelites were present in Britain and America.
During the reign of King Solomon he inherited a huge domain, great power and he devoted himself to wisdom and good rule during the first part of his reign. 1 Kings 4:20-25 related that Israel dwelt safely all the days of Solomon, indeed, how could they not, there was no one left in that area to challenge them.
1 Kings 5:12 show King Hiram and the Phoenicians were allied to Israel. "And the Lord gave Solomon wisdom, as he promised him: and THERE WAS PEACE BETWEEN HIRAM AND SOLOMON; AND THEY TWO MADE A LEAGUE TOGETHER."
1 Kings 4:31-34 makes some statements which the world's historians hate. It states that Solomons' wisdom was known to all the nations of the earth.
"For he was wiser than all men; than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, and Chalcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol: and his fame was in all nations round about. And he spake three thousand proverbs: and his songs were a thousand and five. And he spake of trees, from the cedar tree that is in Lebanon even unto the hyssop that springeth out of the wall: he spake also of beasts, and of fowl, and of creeping things, and of fishes. And there came of all people to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all kings of the earth, which had heard of his wisdom."
2 Chronicles states all the kings of the earth sought the presence of Solomon and brought their tributes year by year and presents to hear his wisdom.
"And all the drinking vessels of king Solomon were of gold, and all the vessels of the house of the forest of Lebanon were of pure gold: none were of silver; it was not any thing accounted of in the days of Solomon. For the king's ships went to Tarshish with the servants of Huram: every three years once came the ships of Tarshish bringing gold, and silver, ivory, and apes, and peacocks. And king Solomon passed all the kings of the earth in riches and wisdom. And all the kings of the earth sought the presence of Solomon, to hear his wisdom, that God had put in his heart." (2 Chronicles 9:20-23)
Is this just some imagination exaggeration of some Hebrew writer? He couldn't actually mean it could he? Well 2 Chronicles 8, 18:9-10 and 1 Kings 9 also show that Israel and Phoenicia joined their navies into one navy, and it mentions they mingled the crews on the same ship.
Berry Fells book "America B.C." has some remarkable revelations of the real extent of just how much the Israelites and the Phoenician alliance was in the area which consists of the United States today. He states in his book "America B.C." that the Phoenicians had a regular port of call of the coast of Maine. Where an old inscription was found which he translates: "Ships of Phoenicia cargo platform."
"It is obvious that the flat topped island would not have been set aside for the loading and unloading of Phoenician ships were they not regular visitors to America, with a predictable time table of ports of arrival and departure and expected dates."
Soon after Solomon became king, Egypt joined the Israelites Phoenician alliance, which is discussed in 1 Kings 3:1.
"And SOLOMON MADE AFFINITY WITH PHARAOH KING OF EGYPT, and took Pharaoh's daughter, and brought her into the city of David, until he had made an end of building his own house, and the house of the Lord, and the wall of Jerusalem round about."
The Pharaoh of Egypt conquered a city it states:
"For PHARAOH KING OF EGYPT HAD GONE UP, AND TAKEN GEZER, AND BURNT IT WITH FIRE, AND SLAIN THE CANAANITES THAT DWELT IN THE CITY, AND GIVEN IT FOR A PRESENT UNTO HIS DAUGHTER, SOLOMON’S WIFE." (1 Kings 9:16)
Which was dowry for his daughter who was Solomon and was apparently his first wife. So, we can see that both King Hiram and Egypt's Pharaoh took the classic action of lesser powers toward a greater power, initiating the efforts to try to bind themselves to a superior power.
Egypt's sailors were a fair skinned group of maritime people who settled in the area of ancient Lybia. This is covered in "America B.C." and "Bronze Age America" where he goes into the classical writers, and it is not his own idea. There is evidence of ancient Egyptians found in Maine, they were known as the Knickknack Indians which Dr. McDonald states was the Algonquian or Iroquois Race.
In the book "Short History of the Near East" by Philip Piffy, he states: "The Phoenician trade on an international scale on textiles, metals, glass, pottery and etc., gave the country three centuries, beginning around 1000 B.C. a prosperity unmatched in its history."
Now the world recognizes the Phoenicians had an empire at that time, but they do not wish to acknowledge that in 1000 B.C. which was the time that David and Solomon rose to power and three centuries later when the Phoenician power seem to disappear was when the Israelites left the area of Palestine. The Phoenicians did not have them around to be allied to. Ecclesiastes Two mentions that Solomon collected the best that the world had to offer in architecture, music, art, etc., and there was no bounds to his wisdom.
The Bible says that God had given him a heart as big as a sea-shore. It also states that the kings when they brought their gifts to Solomon year by year, included animals, gold, silver, many types products and artwork. Which very likely occurred during the feast of tabernacles, which Israel was keeping at that time.
There were several types of the millennium that parallel the prophecies at that time. For the world was at peace during the time that Solomon was a righteous king living by God's Laws. He was a peaceful king of kings, living in Jerusalem, and the rest of the world was flowing to Israel; he was preceded by an era of great wars, just like the millennium will be, when he and David his father put down many enemies.
So we can see that Solomon ruled an area greater than the Caesars of Rome. The Mediterranean was an Israelites lake; it was ruled by Israel and its allies the Phoenicians and Egyptians; he was in charge of the Mid-East and the Mesopotamians were ruled by Israel; but we don't know how far that went into Asia; Egypt was his ally and he had extensive presence in the new world; America was extensively explored and colonized.
Historians also record that Cadez, a city in Spain that is called Cadez now, was founded by the Phoenicians about 1000 B.C., which, again, was during the reign of David and Solomon.
When one looks at the historic records of the Phoenicians the period of 1000 B.C. is very common when they mark their ascension to greatness, which the Bible also identifies as the time when David and Solomon began their golden age.
Early British historians record that the Phoenicians were heavily involved in colonizing and mining in the British Isles. In Raymond Capt's book "The Traditions of Glastenbury" mentions some of the early historical accounts of the Tribe of Asher of Israel overseeing the mining operations in Britain.
Now when Israel split into Israel and Judah this alliance weakened. Wars were fought between the Israelites and the Judeans, and yes at times they were allied. But Israel went very deep into the Baal worship of Phoenicia and around 870-850 B.C. Israel was ruled by King Ahab, who was married to a Phoenician princess by the name of Jezebel from the city state of Sidon. Which shows that the Phoenician/Israelites alliance was still followed.
When God sent a prophet name Elijah in the middle of the ninth century B.C. Israel's King Ahab had gotten to a point where he was so evil that Elijah had prayed for a drought on the land of Israel. James 5 shows that it lasted 3½ years.
"Elias (Elijah) was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months." (James 5:17)
1 Kings 17 and 18 show that the drought was so severe that the creeks dried up, and there was no vegetation was left for the animals. Starvation was prevalent in both Israel and the Phoenician city states as we can see from the example of Elijah when he was sent to the home of the Sidonian widow.
1 Kings 18 states that King Ahab had searched for Elijah in all the nations.
"As the Lord thy God liveth, there is no nation or kingdom, whither my lord hath not sent to seek thee: and when they said, He is not there; he took an oath of the kingdom and nation, that they found thee not." (1 Kings 18:10)
Now that we know those international maritime routes included the area now known as the United States in the new world, that takes on new meaning as it was not just in the mid-east where the search took place. For Israel was still among the great nations of the earth with a large population. During this drought, they had one choice, they could either stay and starve or they could migrate elsewhere and live.
Now Israel had a colonial empire that was quite large, and they had many places to go. However, when one has women and children you do not want to put them on a boat and cross the ocean to America, or Great Britain or even to Spain, you wanted to take them somewhere as close to home as possible, to avoid the rigors of distant travel, yet was away from the drought.
History records that Cartage was founded by the Phoenicians in the middle of the 9th century B.C. Which coincides, roughly with the same time that Israel was experiencing its drought. Alfred Church's book called "Cartage" written in 1890 shows that the name Cartage was the Roman name for the city but that is not the name the Carthagenians called themselves.
They called the city, according to Alfred Church's book, the Carthegians called themselves Cherjaf-habashaf, which Hebrew meaning "new town." A very appropriate name for a new colony, which was being started. Now several historians of Cartage records the magistrates were called the Saphetes by the Romans, but again, that is not the name they called their own magistrates.
In the Carthagenian language when looking at their artifacts, they called them the Shepheta, which is also Hebrew for the word judges. The name of one of the Books of the Bible - Judges. One of their early kings was named Marcus, a Hebrew name, still present during the time of Christ, when the High Priests servant was named Marcus. Remember, he's the one who had his ear cut off, when Peter tried to cut off his head but got his ear instead. Also they had a reference to the Hebrew El, which is depicted in Carthagian artifacts as sitting between the Cherubims.
In the book "Daily Life in Cartage" it states the priestly laws of Cartage was: "A very significant resemblance to the Book of Leviticus, and many of the sacrifices corresponded exactly to those of the Hebrews."
Many historians have noticed the similarity of the Carthagenians or as the Romans called it the Tunic tongue, to Hebrew. As late as the fourth century A.D., which was many centuries after Cartage fell, remnants of the Tunic culture were recognized by early church writers such as St. Augustine and St. Jerome as having their roots in the Hebrew language.
The Encyclopedia Judicia, when it talks about the fall of Samaria, to the Assyrians it mentions that the Africans, which was their word for the Carthagenans contested with the Jews over the rights of Arab-Israel, or the land of Israel.
Now this would make no sense at all if Cartage did not consist of the descendent of the Tribes of Israel. Who had gone into captivity, or had left that area. But they clearly recognized that the land of Palestine was a cultural heritage to the people of Cartage, since they claimed that land as their own at that time.
Cartage became very powerful in the middle of the first millennium B.C. In their early days they were much stronger than Rome and imposed a treaty on Rome, which basically forbade them from sailing in the Western Mediterranean and telling them where they could sail their ships.
They were the enemies of Greece and Rome, they kept them out of the Atlantic Ocean with the Carthagenian Navy. But the Greeks did record some information about what Cartage had found in their Atlantic voyages. And a lot of this will probably be quite new to you. The Greeks record:
"In the sea outside the pillars of Hercules, that's Gibraltar, an island was found by the Carthagians, a wilderness having wood of all kinds, and navigatable rivers; remarkable for various kinds of fruit, many sailing distance day away. When the Carthagenians, who were the masters of the western ocean, observed that many traitors and other men were attracted by the fertility of the soil and the pleasant climate, they frequented it. And some resided there. They feared that knowledge of the land would reach other nations."
You can check the historical accounts and see that Cartage at that point became very protective of what was going on west of the Atlantic Ocean, and did not allow the sailors of other nations past Gibraltar.
A Greek, in the first century by the name of Diatrous, wrote:
"Over against Africa, on the other side of Africa lies a very great island in the vast ocean. Many days sail westward of Libya or from Libya westward, the soil is very fruitful, a great part is mountainous and much likewise is a plane. It has several navagatable rivers, it has very large woods, fresh water and all sorts of wild beasts to hunt."
If one will take a globe of the earth and go westward from Libya to that part of the globe, you will come right into the heartland of what is now called the United States.
This land was obviously America; and it stayed in the hands of the Israelite Carthageians for many many years after Cartage fell. It was the secret of Cartage's wealth, and Cartage is acknowledged as a very wealthy city at that time. In giving America's land to the Carthagians God was passing on to them the promises to Abraham's seed.
Also they inherited the promise of possessing the gates of their enemies. And they held a lock-hold on Gibraltar during much of this time. Heroticus a Greek historian records that,
"the Carthagenians sent an expedition westward from Gibraltar, which included 30,000 men and women, sixty ships, in a time frame of 500-480 B.C. that was when Cartage was much stronger. Westward through the pillars of Hercules to a destination he did not know."
Think for a moment, 30,000 men and women; that's a colonizing expedition, in 60 ships: by doing a little math that is 500 people per ship. Which will give you an idea of the size of the vessel, which even the Greeks acknowledge the Carthagenians were sailing. This also gives us an idea of the size of the ships the Phoenicians and Israelites had during the reign of David and Solomon's time.
Carthagian coins and artifacts have been found in North America, which is a story that is basically not told anywhere. It is in Berry Fells book, but the typical academic writers do not want to really deal with what he has discovered.
These coins have been found in Colorado, New York, Alabama, Connecticut and Nevada. You can even take some of the Carthagenan inscriptions which Fell discusses in his book; you can get a Hebrew Lexicon out of your Concordance and you can come to the exact same translation that Fell does by using those Hebrew Lexicons.
Most people do not realize this because history has been taught from the Greco-Roman perspective but America was long known about, in ancient history. And that Cartage was Israelite in it inception.
However, in later years they became a pyelograph people, they became very degenerate. How long they had worshipers of the True God we do not know. But they became extremely evil; indulging in child sacrifice, mass sacrifices of human beings - they became extremely violent.
When Rome in the second Tunic war, finally won that war it was actually God's judgment against Cartage and its Israelite people as punishment for their sins. But even in that second Tunic War Cartage came very close to exterminating Rome from off the face of the earth.
When Hannibal, who was named after Baal, took an army into the Italian area and was therefore years waging war against the Romans, conquering city after city trying to start a revolt but they were not blessed with victory.
When Cartage fell in the middle of the 2nd century B.C., where did its people go? Since some of the historians talk about the population of Cartage being some 600,000, it also relates that only a few thousand stayed to fight the Romans to the bitter end. Some of them probably sought a new life in Cartage's secret territories in America. For America has been a land of refuge for a long time before the Pilgrims came.
These people which came at that time, were Baal worshipers as the remains in America shows. They had gotten degenerate also, and likely died out in wars, intermarriage with the Indians and possibly from VD from their wild sexual practices; which their monuments testify to.
The Carthagenian Israelites in their empire had Southern Spain including the area of Gibraltar, parts of West Africa, and America in their domain. They traded exclusively in the British Isles.
The book "Judah's Scepter and Joseph's Birthright," goes into the story of how Dan and Simeon arriving in Wales and Ireland. The Carthagenians traded extensively with these people, but there is no evidence that those areas were part of Cartage Empire, they were only mercantile contacts.
Let's repeat, America was given to the Israelites by God in the 1600 and 1700s as the British and European Israelite settlers came again. Historians ignore this part of history because it proves their ideas of evolution as a bunch of bologna. (This entire chapter was taken from "Intelligence Newsletter," written by Pastor Earl F.

Hosea 12:1: “Ephraim feedeth on wind, and followeth after the east wind...”
The Bible is a true reflection of life, both life as it should be, and would be if Yahweh’s commands had been obayed, and life as it actually is uder the present satanic world order.
Therefore it must and it does, contrast the true with the false, for each element of Yahweh’s good plan,Satan has made his deceptive counterfeit. The Bible warned us of this and tells us of what to be aware, and of whom to be aware. To comfort His people, Yahweh also tells us how it will ultimately work out, much of this is in parables, both in the Old and New Testaments. One of these is the parable of the vines, Yahweh’s own vine and the vine of the earth.
Yahweh, as we have shown called His people Israel His sheep in some parables, He also calls them His vine in Psalm 80:8-11:
“Thou has brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it. Thou preparedst room before it, and didst cause it to take deep root, and filled the land. The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs of it were like the goodly cedars. She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river.”
Notice this was Yahweh’s own planting; it was His own vine and it should have brought forth the right kind of fruit. If nothing but His vine had beenthere,we can presume that it would have done so. Also notice how well this fits the United States; for Yahweh cast out the heathen (Indians) so that His people Israel could be planted here.
But trouble developed (jews with their damnable satanic doctrines and fables came to America), for the vine eventually began bringing forth the wrong kind of fruit. Yahweh consistently develops this parable of the vines, we find the next stage of it in Isaiah 5:1-7:
“Now I will sing to mywellbeloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My well beloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill: and he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein; and he looked that it should bring forth grapes: and it brought forth wild grapes! And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem (again the United States), and men of Judah, judge I pray you, between me and my vineyard. What could have been done more to y vineyard, that I have not done in it? Wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes?”
What is this vineyard which has so disappointed Yahweh? We find the explanation of this arable in Isaiah 5:7;
“For the vineyard of Yahweh is the house of Israel,and the men of Judah His pleasant play.”
Therefore, the people of Israel constitute Yahweh’s vine, we find many places where this parable is continued.
Yahweh’s people Israel have disappointed Him, by failing to bring forth the fruit which He could rightfully expect from the people of His own selection. How did this come about? For the explanation, we burn to the prophet Jereiah. The Bible is always true to its own law of the two witnesses, everything must be proven by the testimony of at least two witnesses. Therefore, you will never find the entirety of any matter in the writings of just one prophet.
Self styled scholars write learned and ponderous volumes of commentaries on the books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, etc. However,they have never beenable to give a true explanation of it, because you cannot find the entirety of any one message in the book of just one prophet. You must find the rest of it in the writings of some other prophet, who perhaps wrote centuries earlier or later.
We will continue with the parable of the vines Jeremiah 2:21:
“Yet I planted thee a noble vine, wholly a right seed: how then are thou turned into the degerate plant of a STRANGE VINE unto me?”
The word translated strange, is the Hebrew word “zoor,” meaning an alien of another race. The trouble was that those of another race had infiltrated what should have been Yahweh’s own vineyard, contining only His people Israel. Of course this other race produces fruit of its own kind, even when it is among Yahweh’s own people Israel.
That this has been the source of the corruption is emphasized in Jeremiah 2:25:
“Withhold thy foot from being unshod, and thy throat from thirst! But thou said, There is no hope: no! for I HAVE LOVED STRANGERS, and after them will I go.”
The word strangers, here, is once again translated from the Hebrew “zoor,” meaning people of another race. This has been our history from ancient times even to this very day.
We have opened our gates to those who hate everything we have held as an ideal and aboveall, they hate our Redeemer, Yahshua. They don’t come to adopt our principles and pursue our ideals, they come in their greed, to take of our prosperity. They soon discovered how to corrupt us in ways that rapidly increases their wealth and power.
In ancient times, the ancestors of these mixed ones, these bastards, led us into worship of stone idolas. Today they have led us into the worship of the most immoral among the movie stars and themost corrupt among the politicians. We havent’ raised them to our level, for this was never possible, they have dragged us down to their level. What fruits are now broght forth in Yahweh’s vineyard? The Judeo-Christian clergy has contaminated and spoiled every good thing in the Word of Yahweh. Pornographic books and movies, the utter degrataton of art, literature and music. There is rioting in the streets, the niggers are killing our brother and sister White Israelites; and our people have turned so cowardly they do not stop this; the ever increasing tyranny of power drunk politicians, whose corruption and even treason has become so commonplace that they no longer excite indignation.
What will be the outcome of this? If we don’t ge rid of this alien influence and turn back to Yahweh, terrible judgment must be the result. There is no future, no hope, except in restoring our loyalty, our worship of Yahshua. John 15:1-8 tells us:
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it ay bring forth more fruit. Now are ye clean, through the word which Ihave spoken to unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the brach cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine: no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I amthe vine, ye are the branches; he that abideth in me and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abideth not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and he is withered; and men gather them and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Here in is my father glorified,that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.”
We find powerful figures of Edomite/Canaanite/Khazar jews in our government using all their power to disown our Savior Yahshua. They even remove, form all government departments, any mention of the name of Yahweh. These jews use the pretense that our constitution forbids it! They are past masters at twisting the truth and making it into a lie for that is what the Talmud is; a collection of truths twisted into a lie. As they well know, our nation was foundedby Christians to be a Christian Nation. For that purpose only, did these pilgrims leave theri comfortablehomes in a civilized land and come to a wilderness peopled by hostile savages. All of our original thirteen colonies required belief in the divine inspiration of the Bible and the Christian religion, The Way, as a condition of election or appointment to public office. For more than a century and a half, beginning with the very en who wrote the constitution, we have lived under that same constitution in what the Supreme Court recognized as a Christian Nation.
The words of the constitution have not changed, in this respect, sine it was written. How can its meaning have ever been reversed, it cannot and it hasn’t. These aliens desire to abolish the foundation on which we alone could build that greatness and freedom, our Christian heritage. They seek to substitute for Yahweh’s vine, the vine of the earth.”
The first mention of this is found quite early in the Bible for we find in Deuteronomy 32:31-33:
“For their rock is not as our Rock, evenour enemies themselves being judges: For THEIR VINE is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah; their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter; their vine is the poison of dragons and the cruel venom of asps.”
The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah was not only inhabited by Queers, but also people of another race, to whom the Israelites were not related. The grapes of this vine of Sodom are the individual members of that race, Yahshua identified them as the children of the devil in John chapter eight.
In Ezekiel 16:1-3 Yahweh says to the people of Jerusalem:
“Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations, and say, thus saith Yahweh unto JERUSALEM: Thy birth and nativity is the land of Canaan: thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother an Hittite.”
Yahweh could not truthfully have said that to any Israelite, so He didn’tsay it to any Israelites; Yahweh said it to the PEOPLE OF JERUSALEM, the capital city, there is a great difference. Today you could truthfully say to the people of Washington, D.C., our capital city, ninety percent of your populaton are negroes and most of the rest are antichristians. However, you could not truthfully say this about the United States as a whole. Out of our millions of people, about 190 million claim to be White Christians, only about 11 percent are negroes.
Today our capital city is not a fair sample of the nation as a whole, exactly as it was in Jerusalem when Ezekiel wrote. In Jerusalem, people of other races, Amorites, Hittites and other Canaanites, had infiltrated and wormed their way into positions of power. They became the advisors surrounding the king and the ruling classes of Jersualem, these weren’t Issraelites. In fact, they were driving the true Israelites out, the true members of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin.
This is confirmed in Ezekiel 11:14-15 where we read:
“Again the word of Yahweh came unto me saying, Son of man, thy brethren, even thy brethren, the men of thy kindred, and ALL THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL WHOLLY, are they unto whom THE INHABITANTS OF JERUSALEM HAVE SAID, Get you far from Yahweh unto us is this land given in possession.”
The inhabitants of Jerusalem were driving out all of the house of Israel. We find this confirmed a second time in Isaiah 3:8-9 which says:
“For Jerualem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against Yahweh, to provoke the eyes of his glory. THE SHOW OF THEIR COUNTENANCE DOTH WITNESS AGAINST THEM.”
This could not be true if they were Israelites,because they would have faces like all the other Israelites. If you wanted to dondemn the ruling class of China, you couldn’t say that they could be recognized by their faces.
The true Israelites, of the northern kingdom of Israel and the southern kingdom of Judah, were the ancestors of the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and Teutonic peoples of today. They all looked basically the same. Not only is this a logical deduction, but we have further proof in the ancient monuments which portray the Israelites. These monuments always show the Israelites as having straight noses, typical of Anglo-Saxons. Other monuments, when they show Hittites or other Canaanite people, always show a HOOK NOSED FACE.
Naturally such Canaanite faces would stand out in contrast to the Anglo-Saxon, Israelite faces of Jerusalem. Even today these Canaanite faces stand out in Washington, D.C., London, New York, Paris, Los Angels and other governmentla or commercial cities. These are the people that can be recognized by the mere sight of their faces. These were the people that told the entire house of Israel to get out of Jerusalem, as these Canaanites were taking the land for themselves, just as they are doing presently in the country known as Israel in the midde east.
The infiltrating Canaanites weren’t part of Yahweh’s own vine, for they never were any part of true Israel. They had secured positions of wealth and power in Israel and Judah. They were corrupting the nation so that it was no longer bearing the sort of fruit which Yahweh expected form His vine.
These Canaanite infiltrators are also the same people against whom Yahweh spoke in Isaiah 57:3-4. In the Hebrew He calls these Canaanites, “children of inborn transgression, A FALSE SEED.” This is why in Jeremiah 2:21 Yahweh says to the kingdom of Judah,
“Yet I planted thee a precious vine, a wholly right seed: how then didst thou change thyself towards me into the degenerate planting of the strange vine?”
The word strange, is in the Hebrew word “nokriy,” meaning a person of another race.
Clearly these people, which Yahweh recognized by the sight of their faces, this strange or alien vine, could not share the final great destiny of Yahweh’s own vine, the people of Israel in Ezekiel chapter 15 we read:
“And the word of Yahweh came unto me saying, Son of man, what is the vine tree more than any other tree, or than a branch which is among the trees of the forst? Shall wood be taken thereof to do any work? Or will men make a pin of it, to hang any vessel thereon?
“Behold, it is cast into the fire for fuel: the fire devoureth both the ends of it, and the modst of it is burnt. Is it fit for any work? Behold, when it was whole, it was fit for no work: how much less shall it be fit yet for any work when the fire hath devoured it and it is burned? Therefore, thus saith Yahweh: As the vine tree among the trees of the forest, which I have given to the fire for fuel, so will I give the INHABITANTS OF JERUSALEM. And I will set my face against them; and ye shall know that I am Yahweh, when I set my face against them. And I will make the land desolate, because they have committed a tress pass, saith Yahweh.” (Ezekiel 15:2-8)
Note this is directed against those same inhabitants of Jerusalem, those who can be recognized by their hook nosed faces. These were the ones that ordered the true Israelites to get out and let them take over the land of Jerusalem. Did you notice Yahweh told Ezekiel these inhabitants of Jerusalem had committed a trespass?
When you do onto somebody else’s land, without any right to do so, then you are COMMITTING A TRESSPASS. Yahweh says that these inhabitants of Jersualem had committed a trespass, they had no right to be where they were. This further identifies them as being no part of the real Judah or any other tribe of Israel.
Both the Bible and ancient secular history tell us Yahweh kept His word about driving this Canaanite people out of Jerusalem, where they had no right to be. These Canaanites endured two terrible sieges wenthe Babylonian armies came and surrounded Jerusalem. Many thousands of them were killed. Other thousands died of starvation and pestilence before the city was finally captured by the Babylonian army. We cna feel reasonably sure that the Babylonians, angered by the long fighting and the losses they also suffered, were none too gentile with those thy captured. As Yahweh said, “They shall go out form one fire, and another fire shall devour them.” (Ezekiel 15:7)
Of those who were not taken into captivity at that time, some fled into Egypt, where Yahweh prophesied another disaster would come upon them, this did happen. Those who remained in theland at the time of the siege ofJerusalem, by the Romans in 70 A.D., and again in 132 A.D., endured starvation which reduced them to cannibalism. Over a million of them died in that siege and the capture of Jeruslaem.
There remians to be completed Yahweh’s final destruction of this COUNTERFEIT VINE OF THE EARTH. The destruction will be completed in connection with the Russian invasion of us and Jerusalem, which is so clearly prophesied in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39. By this attack on us, Russia injures Yahweh’s own vine, and Yahweh’s judgment and vengeance is set in motion.
In Joes chapters 1 and 3 we read:
“For a nation is come up upon my land, strong and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion. He hath laid my vine waste, thither cause thy might ones to come down, O Yahweh. Let the heathen be awakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat (Yahweh’s judgment), for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about, Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the vats overflow; for their wickedness is great.”
This is developed more fully in Revelation 14:14-20 where we read:
“And I looked; and behold, a white cloud, and upon the cloud sat one like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying in a loud voice to him that sat upon the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.
“And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And naother angel came from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle syaing, Thrust in thy sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of Yahweh. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.”
This gathering out of those Canaanites who make up Satan’s counterfeit vine, is the same event which Yahshua spoke of in His parable of the tares and the wheat in Matthew chapter 13. This is where Yahshua said that the tares, poisonous weeks growing among the wheat, were the children of the devil living among the children of Yahweh. These tares will be gathered out by the angels at the time of the harvest of the earth.
Don’t think this will be a peacful process, it is the bloodiest kind of war. We read in Revelation 19:11-16 about this same treading of the winepress of the wrath of Yahweh:
“And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white hourse; and he that sat upon him was called Faitful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many corwns; and he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood; and his name is alled the Word of Yahweh. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron; and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty Yahwe. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a anme written, King of kings.”
In Isaiah 63:1-4 is recorded a vision that Isaiah received:
“Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? This is glorious in his apparel, traveling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save. Wherefore art thou red in tine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the wine vat? I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, andI will tain all my raiment. For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.”
Thousands of years have consistently demonstrated it is impossible for the mixture of good and evil to exist together. to have partly Yahweh’s own vine and partly Satan’s vine of the earth, to grow together without Yahweh’s vine becoming corrupted by the presence of the evil seed among them, is impossible. The great realities have not changed at all. The principle is the same, whether these evil people cheat you out of shekles or dollars. We will never be able to develop the wya Yahweh planned for us until Yahweh’s own vine can grow alone, with no intermixture of the vine of the earth. No matter how drastic the methods must be, the removal of the corrupt infiltrators is the greatest of mercy.
In the Aprocrypha, 2 Esdras 9:20-22 boils it all down to a very few words. Yahweh has been talking with Esdras, who was asking Him about the events which were to end the age. Yahweh explained to Esdral,
“So I considered the world; and behold, there was pril because of the devices that were come into it. And I saw, and spared it greatly; and have kept me a grape of the cluster, and the plant of a great people Let the multitude perish, them which were born in vain; and let my grape be kept, and my plant: for with great labor have I made it perfect.”
In the kingdom of Yahweh, for which we hopefully wait, there is no room for the satanic counterfeit vine of the earth. The removla of this evil will allow Yahweh’s children to live happy, productive lives in the paths of righteousness which Yahweh has marked out for us.
