Much is heard today of the word “Anti-Semitic.” The word is a creation of the modern Pharisees who are “Anti-Christian.”
In fact, the word anti-Semitism was an invention; H.H. Beamish, in a New York address, October 30 ‑ November 1, 1937: "In 1848 the word "anti‑Semitic" was invented by the Jews to prevent the use of the word "Jew." The right word for them is "Jew"
Also many true patriots of America refuse to accept the truth of the Bible because they have been lied to all their lives and told that the Jews are God’s people, and therefore don’t want anything to do with God or His Word because they believe that God is the head of the Jews.
When nothing could be further from the truth. The Jews are the CURSED PEOPLE and God will use True Israel to totally destroy them from off the face of the earth at some time in the future.
ANTI‑SEMITISM; It is pointed out that the United Nations Conventions have the effect of changing race into any group having an ethnic belief, religion, common customs, national origins, etc, so that in this context multi‑racial Jews can now claim to be an ethnic group.
"Anti‑ Semitic" now is made to refer to anything against the concept of this "Jewish" ethnic group. Anti‑semitism is in no way what it is presented to be.
Then there is the smug Judeo-Christian who can spout off verse after verse of scripture and does not know a thing about what he/she is spouting. Just recently one of these types asked the question “Where is Israel?” As if no one knows the answer because some Jew has told him that Israel is no more because they have been assimilated within the other peoples of the earth.
“Anti‑Semitism is nothing but the antagonistic attitude produced in the non‑Jew by the Jewish group. The Jewish group has thrived on oppression and on the antagonism it has forever met in the world.” (Albert Einstein, Collier's Magazine, November 26, 1938)
At the 1958 World Jewish Conference in Geneva, Dr. Nahum Goldman, President of the World Zionist Organization, warned Jews that
"a current decline of overt anti‑ Semitism might constitute a new danger to Jewish survival...The disappearance of anti‑ Semitism has had a very negative effect on our internal life."
The word, "Anti‑semitism" was first printed as late as 1880, according to the 1901 Encyclopedia Judaica: Vol.1, p. 641: It is a term that was created by Zionism, according to modern Jewish authority who state,
"Jews began in the 19th century to call themselves Hebrews and Israelites in 1860. This coincides with the cry anti‑Semitism." (Encyclopedia Judicia 1971,Vol.10:23)
Note they "call themselves" and what this means.
The New Zealand Jewish chronicle of Sept.1995 on page 15 quotes Historian Robert Wistrich who says,
"It dates back to 1879, the invention of a German journalist and writer who wanted to signify that anti‑Semitism was not the same as traditional religious hatred of Jews, and therefore coined a phrase which had a racial connotation."
The word, "anti‑Semitism" was first printed as late as 1880 according to the 1901 Jewish Encyclopedia: Vol 1 P.641. The word is used as a cover‑up by those claiming to be Israelites or Shemites, "but who are not."(Revelation 2:9; 3:9)
These are who are known and identified as International Jewry today; they themselves state that "Modern Jewry is Edom."
To be anti‑Semitic rightly means being against the descendants of Shem, the son of Noah, but not against the racially‑mixed modern Jew. Biblical Israel are Shemites.
Historically and biblically, there are peoples known as "Jews" who are not Shemites, and some of these others descend from the other two sons of Noah, Japheth and Ham. They are not Israelites, but neither are some other Shemites.
Nothing would do more at this moment to clear the atmosphere of mental fog than for our Israel people of this country to take a look into the past and find out the actual meaning of anti-Semitism. What a bugaboo it has become through deceptive use! When all the camouflage is removed, the term “anti-Semitism” simply means “against Semites.”
JEWS ADMIT THAT THEY ARE NOT THE DESCENDANTS OF THE ANCIENT ISRAELITES IN THEIR WRITINGS. Under the heading of "A brief History of the Terms for Jew" in the 1980 Jewish Almanac is the following:
"STRICTLY SPEAKING IT IS INCORRECT TO CALL AN ANCIENT ISRAELITE A ‘JEW’ OR TO CALL A CONTEMPORARY JEW AN ISRAELITE OR A HEBREW." (1980 Jewish Almanac, p. 3).
Who then, are Semites? Semites are the descendants of Noah’s son Shem. Therefore, anti-Semitism, meaning literally antagonism toward all the descendants of Shem, CANNOT BE APPLIED TO A SEGMENT OF PEOPLE CALLED JEWS, FOR THEY ARE NOT SEMITES BY ANY STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION. It is true that Abraham was a Semite, being in the direct line of Shem; but there were ten generations from Shem to Abraham; all of them Semites.
Furthermore, Abraham himself was the progenitor of several distinct racial strains besides the Israelites. First, there was Ishmael, son of Abraham by Sarah’s maid Hagar, whose descendants have been identified as the Arabs of today. Next, there is Esau, Jacob’s twin brother who became the father of the Edomites, known also as Idumeans; but are a mixed race of people, which is an abomination to Yahweh.
There is Edom [Esau is called Edom in Genesis 36:8]. And Edom is in 'Modern Jewry' Jewish Encyclopedia, 1925 edition, Vol. 5, p. 41.
Then another separate line resulted from Abraham’s six sons by Keturah. All these Abrahamic peoples and their descendants to this day are Semites, although they are not Israelites. THEREFORE, IN WAGING THEIR CAMPAIGN OF HATE AGAINST THE ARABS, THE JEWS THEMSELVES ARE REALLY ANTI-SEMITIC IN A BIG WAY.
Arabs know about their Semitic background and claim Abraham as their father. They are taught in the Koran that Abraham built the city of Mecca for Ishmael. This seems credible when we consider Abraham’s deep concern for Ishmael’s welfare.
Actually, Arab leaders are amazed by Anglo-Saxon stupidity on the subject. Jewish leaders, too, are much better informed on these racial origins than Christians; and our Israelite brothers and sisters, but THE SUCCESS OF THE JEWS PLAN FOR WORLD DOMINATION DEPENDS UPON KEEPING CHRISTENDOM BLIND FOLDED AND SYMPATHETIC TOWARD THEIR AIMS, BY SENDING OUT A STEADY STREAM OF UNHOLY PROPAGANDA REGARDING THE SO-CALLED HOLY LAND.
Today we find a push for world government by these particular people, as usual through the socialist platform: From the "Jewish Encyclopedia Vol 11:P418.
"Jews have been prominently identified with the modern Socialist movement from its very inception"
We also find evidenced the Communist ideal surfacing again in the United Nations Conventions.
Very soon after the Communist revolution in Russia, the Jewish Chronicle of April 4: 1919 said:
"There is much in the fact that the ideals of Bolshevism are at many points consonant with the finest ideals of Judaism."
The Encyclopedia Judaica , Vol 16:1032 says:
"The modern term Zionism first appeared in the 19th Century...as the establishment of an organization."
Communism sought to eliminate all opposition to its control and objectives and we find a similar operation emerging today against those who would contravene the U.N. Conventions. Communism, Zionism and United Nations have a dominating "Jewish" content, as has the Roman Catholic Church through the Jewish‑originated Jesuits. We will soon see more cries of anti‑Semitism world‑wide against those who oppose Edom in their war of extermination against Biblical Israel and Christianity.
From the presentation from Zionism we are examining, we can see the perspicacious nature of their secret war. They lie in wait even now. We read,
"that we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive." (Ephesians 4:14).
Could any real Christian be other than against God’s enemies.
In Psalm 139:21 David said,
"I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies."
Jesus did the same in Luke 19:27
"But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me."
"Hither" means to the same place as He was speaking and this happens at the second advent.
Anti-Semitism: The word anti-Semitism was an invention; H.H. Beamish, in a New York address, October 30 ‑ November 1, 1937: "In 1848 the word ‘anti‑Semitic’ was invented by the Jews to prevent the use of the word ‘Jew.’ The right word for them is ‘Jew’"
We are told by Jewish authorities the same thing:
"It was (is) the instinctive policy with the mass of the Jewish nation, a deliberate policy with most of its leaders, not only to use ridicule against anti-Semitism but to label as 'anti-Semitic' any discussion of the Jewish problem at all, or, for that matter, any information even on the Jewish problem...If a man alluded to the presence of a Jewish financial power in any region, for instance, in India, he was an anti-Semite.
“If he interested himself in the peculiar character of Jewish philosophical discussions, especially in matters concerning religion, he was an anti-Semite. If the emigrations of the Jewish masses from country to country, the vast modern invasion of the United States, for instance (which has been organized and controlled like an army on the march), interested him as an historian, he could not speak of it under pain of being called an anti-Semite.
“If he exposed a financial swindler who was a Jew, he was an anti-Semite. If he exposed a group of Parliamentarians taking money from the Jews, he was called an anti-Semite. If he did no more than call a Jew a Jew, he was an anti-Semite.
“You cannot long confuse interest with hatred, the statement of plain and important truths with mania, the discussion of fundamental questions with silly enthusiasm, for the same reason that you cannot long confuse truth with falsehood. Sooner or later people are bound to remark that the defendant seems curiously anxious to avoid all investigation of his case...I say it was a fatal policy; but it was deliberately undertaken by the Jews.
“Christians must face them in this country (America). The Jew should be satisfied here. I was here forty‑seven years ago; your doors were thrown open to the Jews and they were free. NO HE HAS GOT YOU ABSOLUTELY BY THE THROAT; THAT IS YOUR REWARD." (Hilaire Belloc, The Jews, pp. 160-161)
First off, if this person were a Christian then he would believe God’s Word, but he obviously does not believe the Bible at all. Oh yes he will shout that he does but he denies one of the most clear verses of who the Jews father is, and that is John 8:44:
44: YE (Jews) ARE OF YOUR (Jews) FATHER THE DEVIL (Satan, the deceiver and adversary of God), and the lusts of your (Jews) father ye (Jews) will do. He (Satan, and Cain the Jews father) WAS A MURDERER FROM THE BEGINNING (Christ is here making reference to Cain the son of Satan, the Jews father; for they have proven that they are the most blood thirsty murderers the world has ever seen, that is why the scriptures say that they are guilty of the righteous from Abel; they have murdered over 100 million Christians and other non-Jews in the last century alone), and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he (Satan, Cain the Jews father) speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
45: And BECAUSE I (Christ) TELL YOU (Jews) THE TRUTH, YE BELIEVE ME NOT.
46: Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?
47: He that is of God heareth God's words: YE (Jews) THEREFORE HEAR THEM NOT, BECAUSE YE (Jews) ARE NOT OF GOD.
John the Baptist told you that the Jews were vipers (snakes) in Matt 3:7:
“But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees (Jews) come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?”
See also Luke 3:7. Christ said of the Jews In Matt 23:33:
“YE (Jews are) SERPENTS, YE GENERATION (race) OF VIPERS, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?”

This Judeo-Christian asked the question “Where is Israel?’ because he does not think anyone knows, but many of us who have truly studied the Bible and contemporary history know where Israel is today and who they are.
And because he doesn’t know then he doesn’t think anyone else does either. There are some men who can build a rocket ship that will go to the moon, but can he? I doubt it, but he doesn’t ask where is the rocket ship.
We believe that if you will practice the saying that the enemy of my enemy is my friend you will find doors being opened to you that you cannot get through at the present time. Take the time to study the Bible and secular history a little and you will see that the True People of God are the White Race of people known as the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and kindred peoples of the earth.
The word “Semitic” is derived from the patriarch Shem, and is correctly applied to the people descended from him. All True Israelites (Not the Satanic Jews as we will show) are therefore Semites; and today there are the great White Christian Nations of the Western World.
The Jews (as the second half of this study shows) are NOT Semitic at all, as their Canaanite and Khazar ancestors were not descendants of Shem. Their smear accusation “Anti-Semitic” against all who oppose Jewish seizure of Palestine is, therefore, false (Indeed, the Arabs - who are half Semitic - can truthfully accuse the Jews of Anti-Semitism)!
That fact is quite obvious. It has been said that Communism seeks to make black white and white black; and the word anti-Semitic is just one example of such mis-use and intended opposite meaning, in an effort to attach an ill-sounding term which should be self-applied, to him or them who are actually quite the opposite in viewpoint.
It is one purpose of the study to bring to the reader accurate Biblical and historic proof of the error applied in the use of the term anti-Semitic. It is hoped that much confusion, purposely created as camouflage, will be clarified in your minds and in the minds of Christians by the careful reading and study of this material.
ISRAEL’S FINGERPRINTS: The Bible is written about, and addressed to, God’s people, “Israel.” It is the history of their past, the prophecy of their future, the law of their relation to their God, and the promise of God’s eternal care of them.
The common misconception, that “the Jews are Israel, or all that remains of them,” has made the Bible meaningless, and most of it apparently false, to those who hold this mistaken belief. It is just as though you took a good history of the United States, but wherever the name “United States” appeared therein, you erased it and wrote “China” in its place. As a history of China, it would be obviously false; but if applied to the right nation, it would be clearly true.
The Bible’s history of Israel’s past is known to be accurate, and its prophecies of Israel’s future have been fulfilled in every detail, down to the present day. When the police have the fingerprints of a wanted man, they know that the man whose fingerprints match those they have is the man they seek.
Likewise, when we find the people to whom God has fulfilled all of His promises and prophecies to Israel, we have found Israel! Today, the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and kindred people’s nations have Israel’s fingerprints in every detail.
When we realize that WE, THE WHITE RACE, ARE ISRAEL, the Bible becomes full of meaning for us: it is our history, it contains God’s promises to US! It gives us courage to face the terrible upheaval into which all the world is being drawn.
If you will only read the Bible with an open mind, taking no man’s word for it, not even ours, but proving for yourself what the Bible says, then comparing that with what you know of present-day history, you will see that WE are God’s People Israel, and that, however terrible the trial ahead, we will be brought safely through it when we turn to God.
First: Let us briefly review the ancient history of Israel. God first made His promises of wonderful blessings to Abram, changing his name to “Abraham,” meaning “Father of Nations.”
Note that this is in the plural - NATIONS. God repeated His promises to Abraham’s son, Isaac; and again to Isaac’s son Jacob, whose name God changed to “Israel,” which means “He will rule with God.”
Israel: Strong’s #3478 Yisra'el (yis‑raw‑ale'); from 8280 and 410; he will rule as God; Jisrael, a symbolical name of Jacob; also (typically) of his posterity:‑Israel.
Israel had twelve sons: The descendants of each son became in time a tribe, under its ancestor’s name: thus, all the descendants of Dan became the Tribe of Dan, all the descendants of Benjamin became the Tribe of Benjamin, etc.
For many centuries, all members of all the thirteen tribes collectively were known as the “children” that is, descendants of Israel. However, do not confuse this with the later “House,” or Kingdom, of Israel, about which we will have more to say later.
Israel and his twelve sons, with their families, went into Egypt, as you will remember; and after about 2 ½ centuries, their descendants left Egypt in the Exodus, under the leadership of Moses.
For several generations they were ruled by “Judges” appointed by God. Later, they unwisely copied the customs of the scrounging nations and demanded a King; so Saul became their first king, ruling, by then, the thirteen tribes as a single nation. This unified nation of twelve tribes (like the United States of fifty states) continued until the death of Solomon, in 975 B.C., when it broke into two nations, Israel and Judah.
1 Kings 11-12 tell us how Solomon finally fell into idolatry, mis-governed the people and burdened them with excessive taxes (Yes, they babbled about “New Deals” and “Great Societies” in those days, also)!
When his son Rehoboam succeeded Solomon as King, in 975 B.C., the weary people petitioned him to ease their burdens; but being vain and arrogant, and surrounded by a lot of “bright” young Jewish advisors (The same as today), he threatened to make their load heavier.
The exasperated people of the ten Northern tribes revolted, and set up their own, independent kingdom under Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, which is told in detail in 1 Kings, Chapters 11 and 12 and 2 Chronicles 10 and 11. Rehoboam, the son of Solomon had left in his Kingdom only the two Southern tribes, Judah and Benjamin and ½ the tribe of Levi, who were the priests: and this Southern Kingdom was never thereafter called the House (or Kingdom) of Israel.
Just as the Southern kingdom Judah, took its name from the Tribe of Judah, which was the ruling Tribe, so also the Northern Kingdom of Israel was sometimes called “Ephraim” in the prophecies, because the Tribe of Ephraim was the most powerful tribe in it.
The histories and destinies of the two kingdoms were thereafter separate: they engaged separately in foreign wars and treaties, and were sometimes at war with each other, as the Book of Kings and Chronicles record.
From the time of this separation, the Bible very carefully distinguished between the Southern Tribe of Judah and the Northern nation of Israel. This distinction is kept clear, both in the HISTORICAL record of what is past and the PROPHETIC record of what is to come. It would take another volume to cover them all, but for a few examples, see the following; the distinction is made historically in 2 Samuel 19:40-43; 1 Kings 14:19-21; 15:1-33; 16:8; 2 Kings 3:1-9; 11:12-13; Jeremiah 3:6-18; 5:11; 11:10-17; 13:11; 18:1-6; 19:1-13; Ezekiel 37:16-22; Daniel 9:7; Hosea 1:11; 4:15; 5:9-15; Amos 1:1; Micah 1:5; Zechariah 8:13; 10:6-8 and many others.
Just as we must carefully distinguish between the two nations of Israel and Judah, so also we must carefully distinguish between the nation of Judah and the Jews.
BOTH Israel and Judah were carried into captivity; but separately, and at different places. Israel was conquered by Assyria between 710 and 721 B.C., and by 721 B.C., its people had been deported and resettled in what we now know as Armenia, northwestern Iran, and the region near Baku, around the southern end of the Caspian Sea.
The Assyrians brought in other people and settled them in Samaria, the southern half of Israel never returned. See 2 Kings 17. From this time onward, the historical parts of the “authorized’ or King James version of the Bible do not record the further history of Israel; but in the Apocrypha, 2 Esdras 13:39-46 it is recorded their further journey to “Ar Sereth” (the valley of the River Sereth, a northern tributary of the Danube River, in modern Rumania, which still bears the name “Sereth”).
At the conclusion of this deportation of ISRAEL from its Palestinian home the Assyrian king Sennacherib also invaded the southern kingdom of JUDAH and captured all the smaller cities in it, everything except Jerusalem.
The people of the smaller cities were then deported, along with the people of the northern Kingdom of Israel. Sennacherib’s own record of this invasion says that he deported 200,150 people from the southern Kingdom of Judah. 2 Kings 18:13 and Isaiah 36:1 mention his capture of these cities.
Thus the Assyrian deportation of Israel included the entire population of the northern Kingdom of Israel and a considerable representative share of the southern Kingdom of Judah. From this time on, these people became the so-called “Lost Ten Tribes of Israel.” As we shall see, God took good care of them, as He had promised, and you White People who are reading this are among their descendants and make no mistake about that.
The Kingdom of Judah, on the other hand, did not all go into captivity until 606 to 585 B.C., and the remainder which had been left in Jerusalem and the cities surrounding it were conquered by Babylon, not Assyria.
They were deported to the City of Babylon and settled nearby, a little south of Bagdad, in what is now southern Iraq. Not quite all of them were deported, a few of the poor being left behind to cultivate the land, and no other people were brought in to settle the land. (See 2 Kings 24-25).
This Babylonian captivity of Judah lasted 70 years, as had been prophesied by Jeremiah 20:4-5; 25:11-12; 29:10. After the fall of Babylon, King Cyrus allowed all who wished to return to Palestine, beginning in 536 B.C., (See 2 Chronicles 36:20-23). Ezra 1-2 records that only 42,360 returned, and their descendants (Who have never been called “Jews” until after the captivity) lived in Palestine until the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans under Titus in 70 A.D.
This reconstructed nation, sometimes called “Jewish” was the “70 weeks” nation with the evil destiny “to finish the transgression,” prophesied in Daniel 9:24, in 70 A.D., those who had survived the terrible wars ceased to be a nation at all, and became scattered wanders in all lands.
There is not one word in either the Bible or secular history to suggest that Israel either was destroyed or that they went down to Babylon and joined Judah in the Babylonian captivity; and the Jews themselves testify that the genealogy of those who returned from Babylon shows no one from any tribe but Judah, Benjamin, and Levi, the members of the Kingdom of Judah.
To the contrary, it was well known at the beginning of the Christian era that Israel THEN EXISTED IN GREAT NUMBERS; Josephus’ great history “Antiquities of the Jews” Book 11, Chapter 5, speaks of them as
“an immense multitude, beyond the Euphrates River.”
The prophetic parts of the Bible still continue to prophecy the great future of Israel several generations after they had vanished into the Assyrian captivity: Isaiah prophesied until 698 B.C., Jeremiah until 588 B.C., Ezekiel to 574 B.C., and Daniel to 534 B.C. Jesus Christ was well aware of the existence of Israel, separate and apart from Judah and the Jews; see Matthew 10:5-6. Again, compare John 7:35; 11:49-52, which cannot refer to Judah or the Jews, as the Jews were not YET “DISPERSED” or “SCATTERED ABROAD” and would not be for another 40 years; ONLY ISRAEL WAS “DISPERSED” OUT OF ITS OWN LAND. Which was prophesied in 2 Samuel 7:10 and 1 Chronicles 17:9.
The complete and permanent destruction of the Jewish nation by the Romans under Titus, and their subsequent troubles as outcasts in every land, but an accurate fulfillment of the prophecies about the Jews. With the history of these nations in mind, let us examine God’s promises and prophecies about Israel in the Bible.
God’s promises to Abraham were UNCONDITIONAL. God must fulfill them or break His word. Consider what God said, in Genesis 12:2; 13:16; 15:5; 17:3-7, 19; and 22:16-18:
“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 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 (Do you see and understand, the Jews cannot be Israel because they are not great in number, compared to the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic and kindred peoples). As for me, behold, my covenant 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. Look now toward heaven, and count the stars, if thou be able to number them; and he said unto him, so shall thy seed be. BY MYSELF HAVE I SWORN, saith the Lord...that in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is upon the seashore; and thy seed shall possess the gates of his enemies.”
God did not say that He would do this “IF” or “PERHAPS” these were all UNCONDITIONAL promises. Those promises which were made at Mt. Sinai on condition that men should obey God’s laws, were the promises made through Moses, relating to health, prosperity, peace, etc.
The promises to Abraham were UNCONDITIONAL and absolute; and in the New Testament, Paul tells us that these “the law, which was 430 years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promises of none effect.” (Galatians 3:17) If the Bible is true, if God’s word is good, then these promises must be good.
God repeated these promises UNCONDITIONALLY to Isaac, in Genesis 26:3-5:
“Sojourn in this land and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee and thy seed I will give all these countries; and I WILL PERFORM THE OATH WHICH I SWORE UNTO ABRAHAM, THY FATHER. And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed ALL OF THESE COUNTRIES; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed.”
Again, in the 28th, and 35th chapters of Genesis, GOD REPEATED HIS PROMISES, UNCONDITIONALLY, to Jacob/Israel our ancestor:
“I am the Lord God of Abraham, thy father, and the God of Isaac, the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; 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. And behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land, FOR I WILL NOT LEAVE THEE UNTIL I HAVE DONE THAT WHICH I HAVE SPOKEN TO THEE OF. Be fruitful and multiply; A NATION AND A COMPANY OF NATIONS shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins.”
There can’t be any evasion of these promises; and God has always honored them. Even when the children of Israel worshiped the Golden Calf while Moses was on Mt. Sinai, receiving the ten commandments, God did not destroy them, for the sake of these promises (See Exodus 32:7-14).
In many place, the New Testament recognized these promises as being still in full effect; for example, in Hebrews 6:13, 17,
“For when God made promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no greater, He swore by Himself...Wherein God, being willing more abundantly to show unto the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it with an oath.”
Again in Romans 11:1-2; 9:4-5 and 15:8 Paul tells us
“I say then, Hath god cast away his people? God forbid! For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the Tribe of Benjamin. God hath not cast away His people which he foreknew...Who are Israelites, to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the story, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; whose are the Fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came...Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers.”
SO THESE ARE THE PROMISES OF GOD: IF THEY ARE FALSE, THEN THE BIBLE IS FALSE: BUT IF THEY HAVE BEEN FULFILLED, THEN THE PEOPLE TO WHOM THEY WERE FULFILLED ARE THEREBY IDENTIFIED AS ISRAEL! But the separate, and very different prophecies relating to the Jews show that the promises and prophecies to Israel HAD NO REFERENCE TO THE JEWS.
Let’s look at a few of them. ISRAEL WAS TO HAVE A CHANGE OF NAME, WHILE THE JEWS’ NAME WAS LEFT TO THEM AS A CURSE. In Isaiah 65:13-15, God tells THE JEWS:
“And ye shall leave YOUR name FOR A CURSE TO MY CHOSEN: FOR THE LORD GOD SHALL SLAY THEE, and CALL HIS SERVANTS BY ANOTHER NAME.”
Who are God’s servants? In many places God repeats this:
“But thou, ISRAEL, are MY servant ...Thou art my servant: I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.”
For example, see Isaiah 41:8-10; 43:1, 10; 44:1-2, 21-22; etc. This has been fulfilled, ISRAEL is no longer called by its old name; but the Jews have retained their name for “a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse,” as Jeremiah 24:9 says.
AGAIN, UNDERSTAND THIS THE JEWS WERE TO BE KNOWN BY THEIR FACES. Isaiah 3:9 says:
“THE SHOW OF THEIR COUNTENANCE DOTH WITNESS AGAINST THEM, and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! For they have rewarded evil unto themselves.”
To this day, the Jew is known by his face, and even getting his nose bobbed can’t always hide it: IT IS A WITNESS AGAINST HIM - While Israel is not so marked.
ISRAEL WAS TO BECOME A GREAT NATION AND ALSO A COMPANY OF NATIONS, AND TO BE A NATION FOREVER, AND TO HAVE A KING FOREVER. (See Genesis 33:11; Jeremiah 31:35-37; Psalm 89:3-4; Isaiah 9:7; Luke 1:32-33; etc.), which say,
“A nation and a company of nations shall be of thee...Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night...If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the Lord, then the seed of Israel shall cease from being a nation before me forever...For thus saith the Lord; David shall never lack a man to sit upon the throne of the House of Israel.”
Since the sun, moon and stars still shine, these promises must be still in effect; and they cannot possibly apply to the Jews, who never were “a company of nations” and who ceased to be a nation at all in 70 A.D. On the other hand, Israel has fulfilled all of this, as we shall see.
GOD SAID THAT THE JEWS WERE TO BE DESTROYED AS A NATION, AND TO BECOME SCATTERED OUTCASTS IN ALL LANDS.
In the 18th Chapter of Jeremiah, God used the parable of the potter making a clay bottle on the potter’s wheel; and on the first trial, the bottle was spoiled; so the potter mashed it back into a lump and tried again, and on the second trial he made a perfect bottle.
God said that He would re-make Israel into the kind of nation He wanted, just as the potter had done with the soft clay. But in the next chapter, Jeremiah 19, God told the prophet to get an earthen bottle which had been burned hard, and to assemble the elders and important men of Jerusalem. Then God said;
“Then shalt thou break the bottle in the sight of the men that go with thee, and shall say to them, Thus saith the Lord of hosts: Even so will I break this people and this city, as one breaketh a potter’s vessel that cannot be made whole again.”
Again in Jeremiah 15:4 and 24:29, God said of the Jews:
“And I will cause them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth, because Manasseh, the son of Hezekiah, the King of Judah, for that which he did in Jerusalem. And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all the places whither I shall drive them.”
In fulfillment of this, after the 70 weeks (or 490 years) of Daniel 9:24 were completed, Titus the Roman General destroyed Jerusalem in 70 A.D.; The Jews were broken as a nation, and have had no king of their own. In John 19:15 they spoke truly, “we have no king but Caesar.”
Israel was to become a very numerous people; besides the many statements of this in Genesis Chapters 13, 15, 22, 26 and 28, it is repeated in Hosea 1:10:
“Yet the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured or numbered.”
The Jews on the other hand were to be reduced to a remnant. In Ezekiel 5:11-12 God said:
“Wherefore, as I live, said the Lord God, Surely because thou hast defiled my sanctuary with all thy detestable things, and with all thine abominations, therefore will AI also diminish thee: neither shall mine eyes spare, neither will I have pity. A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee; and a third shall fall by the sword round about thee: and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.” (See also Jeremiah 15:4-9, etc.)
The total Jewish population of the world today is estimate to be about 25 million people; just a small percentage of an increase in the number before the mythical massacre of six million Jews who were not killed at all, but escaped to the United States and were not reported by the Jewish owned media.
To conceal this fact, the Jews now seek to falsify the records; you will remember that since the 1960 census, it has not been permissible to ask a persons religious affiliation, so you couldn’t find out that more than 5 million of the supposedly dead 6 million had been illegally admitted to the United States. But this 25 million is certainly NOT “as the stars of the heaven or as the sand which is upon the seashore” in numbers.
For another thing, ISRAEL WAS TO BECOME BLIND TO ITS IDENTITY. In Romans 11:25, Paul comments that “blindness in part is happened to Israel.” This is fulfillment of Isaiah 42:19-20:
“Who is blind, but my servant? Or deaf, as my messenger that I sent?... Seeing many things, but thou observeth not: opening the ears, but he heareth not.”
You remember that God’s servant is Israel. The Jews, on the other hand, are not blind to their identity; they know their origin and their history, although they try to fool you into thinking that they are Israel and they generally have succeeded in this deception.
AGAIN, ISRAEL WAS TO RECEIVE THE NEW COVENANT; CHRISTIANITY: Jeremiah 31:33 prophesied it, and in Hebrews 8:10 Paul quotes it in proof of this:
“But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the House of Israel: after these days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts, and I will be their God and they shall be my people.”
Have the Jews received the new covenant? Have the Jews received God’s law in their hearts? Of course not!
As the Apostle John said, in 1 John 2:23,
“Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father.”
And in John 15:23, Jesus Christ Himself said,
“He that hateth me hateth my father also.”
THE JEWS DO NOT FULFILL ANY OF THE PRINCIPAL PROPHECIES CONCERNING ISRAEL, THEREFORE, THE JEWS ARE NOT ISRAEL.
Does Israel exist today? Or has God violated all of His promises? Yes, Israel exists today, for the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and kindred peoples of the Western World have received the fulfillment of God’s promises and prophecies.
FIRST: They are a Great Nation and A Company of Nations, all of the same Race. The United States is the largest civilized nation in the world; its population is exceeded only by China, India, and Russia, it is the richest, the most advanced, the most benevolent in its policies (or was until the Jews seized absolute control of our government), and has the greatest degree of liberty of any large nation.
Between the two world wars, the former British Empire was officially reorganized into the “British Commonwealth of Nations,” Canada and Australia are independent nations. The Scandinavian and Germanic nations are of the same blood, have largely the same customs, and can be identified historically as the peoples who furnished most of the population of the British Isles and its colonies and the United States.
SECOND: They are very numerous, as the prophecies said Israel would be. In the last two centuries, the population of the United States has increased from a mere handful to over 250 million of whom about 150 million are White Christians of Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian stock.
In the last three centuries, the population of the British Isles and their colonies of Canada and Australia increased from about 5 million to over 70 million Anglo-Saxons.
The nations of Germany, Austria, Holland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland add a little over 100 million more. So the total number of the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and kindred peoples number well over 500 million.
THIRD: They are a maritime people: Of the descendants of Israel, Numbers 24:7 prophecies:
“His seed shall be in many waters.”
and Psalm 89:25 says:
“I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers.”
The world’s greatest navies are those of the United States and Britain; the greatest merchant marine fleets are those of Britain, and Norway (and until recently, the United States).
FOURTH: They are the greatest military powers: Jeremiah 51:20 gives God’s word:
“Thou art my battleaxe and weapons of war: for WITH THEE will I break in pieces the nations, and WITH THEE will I destroy kingdoms.”
Throughout history this has been true. A century after being taken captive by Assyria, the peoples of Israel (then generally known as Scythians) had bled Assyria white by their constant warfare against it, so that Assyria was an easy push-over victory for the Medes and Persian, just before they turned their attention to Babylon.
It was the Israel Tribes on their march to Europe, as the Visigoths, Ostrogoths, and Vandals who crushed the Roman Empire. In 713 A.D, at Tours, Anglo-Saxon Israel destroyed the invading hordes of Muslims, Jews and Moors.
In the 13th Century they defeated the Tartar, Mongol, “Jewish” Khazar hordes under Genghis Khan. Later they conquered Turkey and Japan. Not without heavy cost; for the promises of EASY Victory were made through Moses and were conditional upon keeping the law.
But the promise of FINAL Victory to shatter the enemy (even with heavy cost) is unconditional. This has been fulfilled consistently to only one people, those whom we identify as Anglo-Saxon Israel.
FIFTH: They “Possess The Gates Of Their Enemies.” This is one of God’s promises which is found in Genesis 22:17. Obviously, this doesn’t mean a wooden gate in some person’s front yard, but the “gateways” of hostile nations; the great water-ways of the world. Consider the fact that the Anglo-Saxon nations, and THEY ALONE, have power to close EVERY IMPORTANT WATER”GATE” IN THE WORLD.
American and British fleets based at Scotland, the Orkney Islands, Gibralter, Malta, Aden, Capetown, Australia, Singapore, the Phillippines, Hawaii, San Francisco and Puget Sound, Panama (until recently but could still close them if they wished), the Falkland Islands, Hampton Roads, and Iceland; these dominate and can close the Skagerrak and Baltic Sea, the North Sea, the English Channel, the Straits of Gibralter, the Mediterranean, the Suez Canal, the Indian Ocean, the waters around Southeast Asia and the East Coast of Asia, the coasts of Africa and around the Cape of Good Hope, the coasts of North and South America, the Straits of Magellan and around Cape Horn, and all trade routes across the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. They have proven this by actually doing it in two world wars.
SIXTH: The “Possess The Desolate Heritages” Of The Earth. In Isaiah 49:8 God says:
“Thus saith the Lord: In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages.”
No one else has so successfully developed the colonies which were desolate when they first occupied them. Compare what the United States has done in its Southwestern States with Mexico, similar land, with fully as great undeveloped riches separated from us by only an imaginary line.
Compare British Africa with the African colonies of all other nations; and especially compare it with the dismal savagery of the Negroes. Compare the development of Palestine and Iraq WHILE under British rule, with Turkey, Arabia, Iran, etc.
SEVENTH: They Have Expanded In Colonies In All Directions. Deuteronomy 32:8 says:
“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.”
Genesis 28:14 says;
“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.”
Isaiah 54:2-3 tells us,
“Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of habitation; spare not, lengthen thy cords and strengthen thy stakes: for thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.”
Their colonies were established in every sea, in Europe, North and South America, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia. Who else has ever had such colonies? All the ancient empires were insignificant compared to this.
Since we have allowed the Jews to teach us to turn our backs on God, we have unwisely abandoned our colonies; and the chaos in the world today is largely a result of our failure to obey God’s commands to occupy and rule the uncivilized peoples. However, even this was also prophetic (but that is another subject for another study).
EIGHTH: They Have Maintained The Continuity Of The Throne Of David. David’s descendants continued on the throne in Jerusalem until King Zedekiah was taken prisoner to Babylon, at which time all his sons were slain.
But the prophet Jeremiah took the king’s daughters, first to Egypt (as we read in Jeremiah 43:6) and from there, by way of Spain to Ireland, where Zedekiah’s daughter, Tea Tephi, was married to Eochaidh, the Heremon (or Chief King) of Ireland. Eochaidh was a descendant of Zarah, one of the twin sons of Judah, while David was a descendant of Pharez, the other twin.
Killing all of Zedekiah’s sons did not end the dynasty, as it was established law in Israel ever since they first entered Palestine, that when a man died leaving no sons, his daughters received the entire inheritance.
The two king lines of the Tribe of Judah were united in this marriage; and the lineage is clearly traced in the histories of Ireland, Scotland, and England, unbroken down to the present British Queen Elizabeth.
Thus the prophecy that David’s descendants should always be on the throne over an Israelite nation has been fulfilled; and by the Anglo-Saxon nations ONLY.
This has covered but a tiny fraction of Biblical proof that the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, and Scandinavian people are the Israel of the Bible. Scholars have found nearly 100 prophecies concerning Israel which have been fulfilled by this one group of people. Sixty two of them are listed here for your study:
1). The land of the promised nation was to be located between two seas the Eastern Sea and the Great Western Sea! (Ezekiel 47:18; Amos 8:1‑12; Joel 2:20; Ezekiel 48:1; Psalm 72:8; Zechariah 9:10; Zechariah 14:8; Ezekiel 47:19)

"And I will bring the blind BY A WAY THAT THEY KNEW NOT; I WILL LEAD THEM IN PATHS THAT THEY HAVE NOT KNOWN: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and NOT FORSAKE THEM. They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, and that say to the molten images, Ye are our gods. Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see. Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the Lord's servant?" (Isaiah 42:16‑19)
"Then said God, Call his name Loammi: for ye are not my people, and I will not be your God. Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, YE ARE THE SONS OF THE LIVING GOD." (Hosea 1:9‑10)
"Therefore, behold, I WILL HEDGE UP THY WAY WITH THORNS, AND MAKE A WALL, THAT SHE [Israel] SHALL NOT FIND HER PATHS ...For I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, AND THEY [Israel] SHALL NO MORE BE REMEMBERED BY THEIR NAME." (Hosea 2:6, 17)
"For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that BLINDNESS IN PART IS HAPPENED TO ISRAEL, until the fullness of the Gentiles [Nations] be come in." (Romans 11:25)

"Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and APPOINT THEMSELVES ONE HEAD [President], and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel." (Hosea 1:11)
"One head," ‑‑ President ‑‑ appointed ‑‑ Elected ‑‑ by the people, governors, judges and counselors taken from the masses of the people are particularly promised, BUT NO KING; BECAUSE CHRIST IS OUR KING!
62). Latter day Israel to be captive of "Mystery Babylon."
When one considers that the United Nations now recognizes over 100 member nations, the odds against any one nation fulfilling the first of these prophecies is obviously 100 to 1.
The odds against that same nation fulfilling both the first and second prophecies again multiplies this by 100, making ten thousand to one; and the odds against the same nation fulfilling the first, second and third prophecies becomes one million to one.
Well, you figure it out; keep on multiplying by 100; oh, even 50 more times. But even that isn’t all; a group of nations all the same blood have done this.
Not a random assortment, like China and Spain, or Egypt and Brazil; but all of the same racial group. So this again multiplies the odds. Do you think that this could happen by mere accident?
And if you do think that this was pure accident, then WHAT HAS BECOME OF GOD’S PROPHECIES AND PROMISES? Was He too ignorant to know that He couldn’t make good on His word, that all the things He had promised to Israel never got there but were all taken by other people?
No, I don’t think that God made any failures or any mistakes. He promised and Prophesied many things about Israel. They have all come to pass; and they have all been made good to the same racial group of nations.
Who Are The Jews?: The identification of the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian peoples as the surviving members of the people of Israel, leaves us with two other questions to answer: 1). Who Are The Jews? 2). Was Jesus Christ A Jew?
To answer these questions, we must first define what we mean by “Jew.” The muddled thinking of most Judeo-Christians on this subject is due to the fact that they never know just what they do mean by “Jew” sometimes they mean a Jew by religion, regardless of his race (for Negroes, Chinese and Japanese have all been converted to Judaism); or sometimes they mean a Jew by race, regardless of his religion (for example Ben Gurion of the Jewish nation in Palestine was a Buddhist by religion, though a Jew) and usually people don’t know which of these they do mean.
Since it can be answered quickest, let us first take the question; was Jesus Christ a Jew by RELIGION? The answer is clearly “NO.”
Jesus had the true religion of the Old Testament, found in the Law and the prophets: and He constantly rebuked the Jews for having abandoned this for Judaism under the Babylonian Talmud (which in His day was called “The Tradition of the Elders”).
In Matthew 5:17-18, He said:
“Think not that I am come to destroy the Law or the prophets; I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill; for verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the Law till all be fulfilled.”
Jesus constantly rebuked the Jews for their apostasy, for setting aside the Laws of God in favor of the Tradition of the Elders. This Talmudic Judaism was very different from the religion which we find in the Old Testament.
The late Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, Chief Rabbi of the United States, expressed it so clearly that we cannot improve on his words. He said:
“THE RETURN FROM BABYLON AND THE ADOPTION OF THE BABYLONIAN TALMUD, MARKS THE END OF HEBREWISM, AND THE BEGINNING OF JUDAISM.’
Since the true religion of the Old Testament was the religion of the Real Hebrews (NOT JEWS), the learned rabbi was quite right in calling it “Hebrewism” and noting that it came to its end when the Talmud (as we said it was then called The Tradition of the Elders) was adopted; and that this WAS THE BEGINNING OF A NEW RELIGION - “JUDAISM,” (or BABYLONIANISM).
So we read in Matthew 15:1-9:
“Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees which were of Jerusalem, saying, Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they wash not their hands when they eat bread. But he answered and said unto them Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your Tradition? Ye hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophecy of you, saying this people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoreth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”
DID YOU SEE AND UNDERSTAND CHRIST? HE SAID THE JEWS WORSHIP HIM IN VAIN; therefore there is no such thing as a Christian Jew!
This same incident is also found, for a second witness, in Mark 7:5-13. In John 5:37-46, Jesus told the Jews:
“The Father Himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me...Search the Scriptures: for in them ye think ye have eternal life (Here again Christ is telling us that the Jews cannot be saved and cannot have eternal life); and it is they which testify of me...For had ye believed Moses (the Jews claim they believe Moses’ teachings, but here Christ says they are liars, that they don’t believe Moses), ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.”
Again, in John 8:54-55, He said:
“It is my father that honoreth me: of whom ye say that he is your God: yet ye HAVE NOT KNOWN HIM (again and again Christ is telling us that the Jews do not know God and therefore cannot be saved, but most people will not listen to the words of Christ).”
In John 15:23, Christ said:
“He that hateth me hateth my father also.”
In the 21st Chapter of Matthew, Jesus summed up their position by saying that even the Tax Collectors and the harlots could enter the Kingdom of God before the Jews. Surely, Christ’s entire ministry was a complete demonstration that He was not a Jew by RELIGION.
Was Christ a Jew by RACE? To answer this, we must trace the racial ancestry of both Jesus and the Jews. Jesus Christ was a pure-blooded member of the Tribe of Judah and no true Judahite was a Jew by race, as we shall see.
Jesus’ ancestry is given in both Matthew 1 and Luke 3. Both of them show that He was a descendant of the Patriarch Judah, through one of his twin sons. Pharez; by His mother Mary, He came through the line of David, and Nathan, the brother of Solomon, as traced in the 3rd chapter of Luke. Jesus Christ was therefore a pure-blooded Israelite, of the Tribe of Judah as Paul says in Romans 9:4-5.
Let’s trace the racial descent of the Jews. First, let us not that the Jews were not; and are NOT, Israelites. Yes, we know that you have been taught that “Jew” and “Israelite” were the same thing; but no greater falsehood was ever taught, as we shall see. The first proof is from Christ Himself; He stated plainly, in Matthew 15:24:
“I am not sent BUT unto THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL.”
Therefore, He was sent to those who were of Israel; but not to others. Accordingly, when He sent His 12 disciples out to preach His gospel, Matthew 10:5-6 records that He told them:
“Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not; but GO rather TO THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL.”
And He added,
“Ye shall NOT have gone over the cities of ISRAEL till the Son of man be come.” (Matthew 10:23)
They could have gone over all the cities of Judea in a month; so it was obvious that the cities of ISRAEL, to which He referred were the cities of the so-called Lost Tribes who had already entered Europe in their long migration.
But take careful note of Jesus Christ’s own words:
“I am not sent but unto the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel.”
If the Jews were any part of Israel then they would have been some of His sheep; but He says that they are not.
For in the 10th Chapter of John, Christ says:
“I am the good shephered, and KNOW MY SHEEP, AND AM KNOWN OF MINE.”
But He tells the Jews; and it says “Jews”
“But ye believe not, BECAUSE YE ARE NOT OF MY SHEEP, as I said unto you. MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE, AND I KNOW THEM, AND THEY FOLLOW ME.”
Note carefully those words: He does NOT say that the reason that the Jews are not His sheep is that they don’t believe, and that they could become His sheep just by changing their minds; to the contrary, He says that the reason they don’t believe is that THEY ARE NOT OF HIS SHEEP: He knows His sheep, and knows that THE JEWS ARE NOT OF HIS SHEEP.
Since the Jews are not any part of the Tribes of Israel, then Who Are The Jews? Let’s trace their ancestry. We find that the true line of His people must be kept free from mongrelization with the neighboring Canaanites.
Accordingly, Genesis 24:3-4 records that Abraham took great pains to see that his son, Isaac, should marry only a woman of his own people; likewise Genesis 27:46 to 28:1 records that Isaac also required that his son, Jacob (the father of the Israelites) should also marry only within his own racial line.
This law had been obeyed for several centuries, to keep the race line pure. Then, Esau, the brother of Jacob/Israel married into the Canaanite blood line, and polluted his blood, and his descendants have been the most murderous of all the Jews.
Then one of the sons of Israel, the patriarch Judah, father of the tribe of Judah, violated it by marrying a Canaanite woman, who bore him 3 sons, of whom only one, Shelah, survived and left descendants. (See Genesis 38:1-5)
This half-breed, mongrel line must be distinguished from Judah’s pure-blooded descendants by his twin sons Pharez and Zarah. Judah fathered Pharez and Zarah by his daughter-in-law Tamar; although born out of wedlock, they were of pure, Israel stock on both sides; and from one of them, Pharez, Jesus Christ was descended. The descendants of these twins are the real tribe of Judah.
The half-breed son, Shelah, accompanied Judah into Egypt, and in the following centuries left many descendants. They were in the Exodus, and accompanied the armies of Israel into the promised land. (See Genesis 46:12 and Numbers 26:20)
However, they bred true to type; they were half-breed Canaanites, lacking the spiritual insight which God gave to His own people, so they remained idolators, Ba’al-worshipers.
In 1 Chronicles 4:21, we find them referred to as “the House of Ashbea.”“Ashbea” is a corruption of “Ish-baal” or “man-of-Baal” and shows that they were still idolators, unable to perceive the God of Israel. So these Shelanites, half-breeds, formed one of the peoples of the land, who made up the Jews in the time of Jesus Christ.
Book of Jasher 45:1-3
1: And it was at that time in that year, which is the year of Joseph's going down to Egypt after his brothers had sold him, that Reuben the son of Jacob went to Timnah and took unto him for a wife Eliuram, the daughter of Avi the Canaanite, and he came to her.
2: And Eliuram the wife of Reuben conceived and bare him Hanoch, Palu, Chetzron and Carmi, four sons; and Simeon his brother took his sister Dinah for a wife, and she bare unto him Memuel, Yamin, Ohad, Jachin and Zochar, five sons.
3: And he afterward came to Bunah the Canaanitish woman, the same is Bunah whom Simeon took captive from the city of Shechem, and Bunah was before Dinah and attended upon her, and Simeon came to her, and she bare unto him Saul.
Another alien racial group who became part of the Jews were the “mixed multitude” which Exodus 12:38 says left Egypt along with the children of Israel. The Hebrew word here translated “mixed” is the word “ereb,” meaning half-breed or mongrel.
During the two centuries in Egypt, many had violated the divine law against race-mixing, and these were the result.
During the Exodus, when the going became hard in the wilderness, the Bible records that this “mixed multitude” made a lot of trouble, and led some of the Israelites into rebellion. (Numbers 11:4-6) This mongrelized group was still in the land after the return from the Babylonian captivity; for we find them listed in Nehemiah 13:3 as still in the land, and still a source of trouble. They also were among the Jews in Christ’s time.
Then there were the various Canaanite peoples who were still in the land, chief of whom were the Jebusites, the Hittites, the Hivites, the Perizzites, and the Amorites.
When the Israelites were about to enter the Promised Land, God gave them specific instructions to completely drive out or exterminate all of these Canaanites, saying:
“When the Lord thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Gergashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou; and when the Lord hy God shall deliver them before thee: THOU SHALT SMITE THEM AND UTTERLY DESTROY THEM; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor show any mercy unto them...But of the cities of these people which the Lord thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth: but thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hitties, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee.” (Numbers 33:50-56; Deuteronomy 7:1-6; 20:16-18)
We know that it is fashionable among the “liberal’ church members of today to look down their noses at God, and say, “I just can’t believe that cruel God of the Old Testament.”
However, we think He will manage very well without their belief. He always has a good reason for what He does or tells us to do. The Bible never argues with you about the reasons for its rules, it just states the rule: but there is a good reason, if you will look for it.
For about 2,000 years, the Canaanites had worshiped Ba’al and Ishtar; the most immoral religion in the world, with the possible exception of the Hindu religions even today. Part of the worship of Ba’al and Ishtar consisted of the compulsory prostitution of all the women.
On certain festival days of the year, all the women of the village had to sit in the field outside the village gate: and any wandering camel-driver who came along could select the woman of his choice, hand her the coin which she must pay over to the temple, then take her aside and leave with her his syphilis or gonorrhea, as the case may be.
This funneled into Palestine the venereal diseases of all western Asia. Any Doctor can tell you that one infection of syphilis, not cured, can produce degenerative changes in the children for as many as four generations.
But the Canaanites had been replenishing the disease with new infections every generation for 2,000 years; they were not physically, mentally, morally, or spiritually fit to marry or even associate with our people.
Therefore, God warned the Israelites to exterminate them; if you do not, He warned them, you will have “integration;” your children will grow up with theirs as playmates, they will intermarry, until you become as badly polluted as they are, and I will have to destroy you as I am commanding you to destroy them.
But the Israelites are often soft-hearted and soft-headed. While they did exterminate the people of Jericho and a couple of other cities, the Bible records that they left most of the others alive, merely making them pay a heavy tribute tax. For example, the city of Jerusalem was inhabited by the Jebusites at the time the Israelites came in.
However, the Bible records that the Jebusites were neither killed nor driven out, but continued to live among the people of the Tribes of Judah and Benjamin. (Joshua 15:63; Judges 1:21, 27-35; and 19:10-12; and 2 Chronicles 8:7-8).
Even after the remnant of the people of the southern Kingdom of Judah returned from the 70 years’ captivity in Babylon, the Jebusites were still in the land, and some of the people were intermarrying among them. (Ezra 9:1-2 and Nehemiah 13:23-29) And the Bible records the same thing as to the other Canaanite peoples.
Further proof of this is found in various places, such as Ezekiel 16:1-3:
“Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations, and say thus saith the Lord God unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and thy Nativity is the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother an Hittite.”
God could not have said this truthfully to any real Israelites: BUT He was NOT saying it to Israelites: He said it to the city of Jerusalem and her people. They were in large part Canaanite Jews: and they had gained power in the manner by which Jews usually gain it; hence Jerusalem was becoming more and more corrupt, as most of the prophets recorded.
They surrounded, and became the influential advisors of, the Kings of Judah: just as today they surround and are the principal advisors of our Presidents. We find clear proof of this in Isaiah 3:8-9, where he says:
“For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongues and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of His glory. THE SHOW OF THEIR COUNTENANCE DOTH WITNESS AGAINST THEM; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! For they have rewarded evil unto themselves.”
In China, where their rulers were Chinese you couldn’t say that “the show of their countenance doth witness against them” their faces would be just like those of the rest of the Chinese; and in Sweden, where their ruling class were Swedes, you couldn’t say that their faces were witness against them, for they had the same kind of Swedish faces as the rest of the people had. But in Jerusalem, the faces of the Canaanite-Jebusite Jews identified them, “were a witness against them.” The true Israelites were not hook-nosed.
The ancient kings of Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, and Persia were very vain about their military conquests, and left carved stone monuments telling how thy captured this city and that one, killed so many people and enslaved the others, etc.; and on these monuments they usually had carved in the stone pictures of the captive people.
Whenever they showed Israelites, the faces had straight noses and were generally of Anglo-Saxon type; but when they showed Canaanites, the faces were those of typical hook-nosed Jews.
Therefore, the faces of the Canaanite-Jebusite Jews who had gained controlling power as merchants, bankers, advisors of the King, the wealthy ruling class, identified them as separate from the real Israelites; thus “the show of their countenance doth witness against them.”
They had brought ruin upon the Kingdom of Judah. Now go back and read the many places where Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel condemn the wickedness which was found in Jerusalem; don’t you find the same conditions existing in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C., where large numbers of the same people have gained power through their wealth?
So we find that there were still large numbers of Canaanites in the land, “integrated” with the real Israelites and Judahites, and bringing the lowering of standards and morals which integration always brings; look at the City of Washington, D.C., for example.
Besides the Jebusites in Jerusalem, the Bible records that the other Canaanite peoples; the Hittites, the Hivites, the Perizzites, and the Amorites, were not exterminated or driven out, but merely conquered and made to pay a tribute tax, and left in the land to be integrated with the people and corrupt them. So these Canaanites were another element of the Jews in the time of Jesus Christ.
Remember that when the people of Israel left Egypt, they were accompanied by a “mixed” mongrel multitude. The same is true of the return of the remnant of the people of the Kingdom of Judah from their captivity in Babylon.
The books of Ezra and Nehemiah record the return; and show that the total number who returned was 42,360; but they also show that among these were many who were not Israelites of any tribe; they were Babylonians who had come with them, in order to “get in on the ground floor” as the saying is; and they had even infiltrated into the priesthood.
But it says that “these sought their register among those that were reckoned by genealogy, but they were not found.” When you add up the total of all these other elements listed in Ezra and Nehemiah, they equal 8,381 of these alien Babylonians, about 1/5 th of the people who returned from Babylon to Palestine. So they also formed another element of the Jews in the land of Jesus Christ’s time.
Remember also, that Esau and Jacob were twin brothers; but Esau was a man of such low character that we have God’s own testimony, in Malachi 1:2-3:
“Was not Esau Jacob’s brother? Saith the Lord: Yet I loved Jacob, and I hated Esau.”
Jacob kept the race-line pure, and God changed his name to Israel and made him the father of God’s own chosen people, Israel. But Esau married two Canaanite wives and one Ishmaelite wife, and left only half-breed, mongrel children. (Genesis 26:34-35; 27:46; and 36:2)
As his mongrel descendants could not marry into the true Semitic line, he moved out from among them, and went down to Mount Seir, the rugged range of mountains south-east of the Dead Sea, and this land was called “Edom” (or occasionally by the Greceianized form of the word, “Idumea”); thereafter, his descendants were called “Edomites.” (Genesis 33:16 and Genesis 36:1-9)
There they had a long and troublesome history. Esau’s grandson was Amalek, father of the Tribe of Amalek, who were such an evil lot that, in Exodus 17:14-16, God said that He would have perpetual war with Amalek until they were all destroyed.
The Edomites constantly harassed the southern portion of Israel until King Saul beat them off, about 1087 B.C. But Saul disobeyed God’s command to EXTERMINATE THEM, and for this disobedience, God deposed him as king, in favor of David. (1 Samuel 15:1-26)
But even David didn’t exterminate them, and there was a long history of wars between Edom and Israel (later with Judah). You will find it in 2 Kings, Chapters 8 and 14, and 2 Chronicles Chapters 20 and 25. The whole book of Obadiah is devoted to God’s condemnation of Edom’s treacherous attack upon the Kingdom of Judah when Judah was being conquered by Babylon.
During the Babylonian captivity of part of the Tribe of Judah and Benjamin, the land lay practically empty; and during this period, the people of Edom, partly from opportunity and partly from pressure against them from the east, moved into the vacant southern half of the old Kingdom of Judah. (See article “Edom,” in Funk & Wagnall’s New Standard Bible Dictionary, pp. 198-199; Scribner’s Dictionary of the Bible, Vol. I, pp. 644-646).
From this new area, they continued to harass the little nation which returned from Babylon. By about 142 B.C., the returned exiles of Judah won complete independence under the Maccabean line of Kings; and about 120 B.C., John Hyrcanus, one of the Maccabean Kings, conquered the Edomites.
He, too, instead of exterminating them, took them into his kingdom, offering them full citizenship if they would give up their paganism and adopt the religion of Judaism. This they did, and from 120 B.C., they were full citizens of the kingdom. (See Josephus, “Antiquities of the Jews,” Book 13, Chapter 9, and see also The Jewish Encyclopedia, article “Edom,” Vol. V. p. 41).
By 69 B.C., incompetent leadership and intrigue within the Maccabean monarchy, together with the rising power of Rome in western Asia, gave opportunity to Antipater (also called Antipas), an Edomite chieftain, founder of the Herodian family, to rise to power.
By bribery, boldness, and military skill, he gained the favor of Rome, and the Romans made him Procurator (Governor) of Judea. His son, Herod I, beginning as Governor of Galilee, used the same methods to secure appointment as King of Judea in 40 B.C.; and by 37 B.C., he had gained complete control of Judea.
He maintained himself in power by extreme ruthlessness and by bribery, for which he taxed the people very heavily. (The New Deal, Raw Deal, Great Society are no new, after all)! This is the same Herod who had all the little male children in Bethlehem murdered, trying to murder Jesus Christ.
His son Herod Archelaus, held the Governorship (the Romans didn’t trust him with the crown) for ten years of astonishingly evil misrule, from 4 B.C., to 6 A.D.; after which the Romans convicted him of crimes and removed him: and thereafter Judea was governed by Roman Procurators (of whom Pontius Pilate was No. 6).
Nevertheless, the Romans left practically complete power of local government in the hands of the Herodian Edomites, who had complete control of the Temple and power to enforce all their local laws. (Remember how Pontius Pilate tried to get out of condemning Christ, telling the Jews “Take YE Him, and judge Him according to YOUR law.” (John 18:31)
These Edomite Jews could say that Abraham was an ancestor of theirs, through Esau, as they did in John 8:33; but this Hebrew blood through Esau had been diluted to the vanishing point by 1700 years of marrying only people of Canaanite racial stocks.
Therefore, Christ rebuked them for falsely claiming to be still of Abrahamic (and therefore inferentially of Israelite) lineage, for He told them, in John 8:44:
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth because there is no truth in him.”
You should very carefully observe the 8th chapter of John, verses 31-47. These were Jews to whom Christ was speaking, and the Bible identifies them as Jews. In the Jewish Encyclopedia, the article on Edom concludes with the words
“The Edomites today are found in modern Jewry.”
Now, let us review for a moment what we have covered. We have seen that Christ was NOT a Jew by religion, for the Jews base their religion on the Babylonian Talmud, which was at that time called “The Tradition of the Elders,” and Christ’s whole ministry was one constant battle against the evils of Judaism.
We have seen that Christ was a TRUE ISRAELITE, of the Tribe of Judah, BY RACE. And we have seen that the Jews of His time included the mongrel descendants of Shelah, the mongrel “mixed multitude” which followed the Israelites out of Egypt, the various Canaanite peoples in Palestine, including the Jebusites, the Hittites, the Hivites, the Perizzites, and the Amorites.
NOW do you understand why Christ, Who said that He was sent only to “the lost sheep of the House of Israel” told the Jews that
“I know my sheep, and they know me, BUT YE (Jews) BELIEVE NOT BECAUSE YE ARE NOT OF MY SHEEP, AS I SAID UNTO YOU, MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE, AND I KNOW THEM, AND THEY FOLLOW ME.” in the 10th chapter of John?
The tiny remnant of Judah and Benjamin which came back to Palestine form the Babylonian Captivity did leave some descendants in Palestine; but THESE were Christ’s sheep, and He Himself said He knew them, they knew Him, and they followed Him.
All those in Palestine who became Christians were true members of the Tribe of Judah or the Tribe of Benjamin, but they were NOT JEWS. The Jews were NOT members of Judah, Benjamin, or any other Israelite tribe, for Christ Himself said THE JEWS WERE NOT HIS SHEEP.
We must now return to the Jews of Palestine for a few words more. As you know, by 65 A.D., the Romans had found the rascality of the Palestinian Jews so intolerable that they began the campaign which resulted in the fall of Jerusalem in 70 A.D.
The Jews were then expelled from Palestine, and in 135 A.D., they were expelled again, and most of them migrated in large numbers to what was then called Byzantium, later called Constantinople, and today is known as Istanbul, facing the Bosphorus, outlet of the Black Sea. Here, they again demonstrated the truth of the Bible’s lesson, that CONDUCT IS THE PRODUCT OF CHARACTER; or in Christ’s Own words, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.” By the year 135 A.D., their criminal actions had again become so intolerable that they were again expelled; and they moved northeast, into the Khazar Kingdom
Now we know who it was who constituted the Jews in Christ’s time. If you want to bring it down to date, and find out who are the Jews in our own day, we must add one more element.
Of course, the descendants of the Jews of Christ’s day are among them; but there is also another element: The Khazars. These make up about 95% of the Jews in the world today.
About the year 150 A.D., the Khazars, an Asiatic people related to the Turks, migrated westward from Central Asia, and established a great empire which covered what is today southwestern Russia, north of the Aral Sea, the Caspian Sea, and the Black Sea, including the Don and Dnieper Valleys and the Crimea. About 740 A.D., Buland, the kagan or King of the Khazars, was converted to the religion of Judaism, together with some 4,000 of the most powerful nobility of the kingdom.
In those days, it was not healthful for a subject to be in a religion in conflict with that of the king or with the baron on whose land he lived; so in due course, most of the Khazars became Jews by religion. In fact, it became part of the kingdom’s constitution that no one but a Jew by religion could be king.
The principal languages spoken were the Khazar (later called “Yiddish”) and Turkish. During the great invasion by the Mongols under Genghis Khan, many of the Judaized Khazars were dispersed into what is now Poland and Lithuania.
These Khazars, Jews by religion, constitute the majority of the Jews of today; and those with names such as Minsky, Baranov and Moscowitz; (the latter often shortened to “Mosk”) also, since much of the western part of this area has been at one time or another ruled by Austrian or Germanic peoples who brought in their own language, these Khazars also took Germanic names, such as Gold or Goldberg, Rosenberg, Eisler, and so forth.
If you are wondering how they can be so much like the other Jews, historical documents written at the time the Khazar empire was at its greatest height refer to their tradition that their ancestors originally came from the region of Mr. Seir, which is Edom, the home of the Edomite Jews.
If you wish to look up further details, you will find brief articles on the Khazars in various encyclopedias such as the Britannica, the Jewish Encyclopedia has 6 pages on it. In some it is spelled “Khazar” and in others “Chazar” and even other variations.
It is also discussed in “ A History of the Jews,” by Solomon Grayzel, “A History of the Jews,” by Professor H. Graetz, (both works published by the Jewish Publication Society of America) and “The History of The Jewish Khazars,” by D.M. Dunlop.
The most thorough discussion of the whole problem is found in “The Iron Curtain Over America,” by Col. John Beatty, and “Zionist Connection II,” by Alfred Lilenthal, “The Thirteenth Tribe,” by Arthur Koestler. Col. Beatty was an Historian and Professor of History, whose works are used as text books in more than 700 colleges and universities. “Iron Curtain Over America” was one of the most throughly documented and accurate works ever put in print. It should be in the library of every patriotic American and good Christian.
Perhaps you are wondering, “Why does my Bible sometimes speak well of the Jews? Such as Paul saying in Romans that
“the gospel of Christ...is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek:” and in Acts, Paul saying that he was “a Jew of Tarsus.” (Romans 1:16 and 2:10)
If you will look up these few instances in a good concordance, such as Strong’s you will find that in each instance the translators have written the word “Jew” in English, where it was not used in the original Greek from which they MIS-translated it.
In such instances, in the original Greek, the word used was “Ioudaios” which does not mean “Jew,” but simply a “Judean,” a person whose home is in the land of Judea, or southern Palestine.
#2453 Ioudaios (ee‑oo‑dah'‑yos); from 2448 (in the sense of 2455 as a country); Judaean, i.e. belonging to Jehudah: KEV‑‑ Jew (‑ess), (a person) of Judaea.
It has no religious connotation, and it has no racial connotation either; it is purely a geographic term, like “Texan.” A “Texan” can be White, Black, Brown or Yellow by race; and he could be a Christian, Jew, Buddhist or atheist by religion.
So also a “Ioudaios” was merely a person who lived in Judea, where, as we saw, there were some few Israelites of the tribe of Judah and Benjamin; but there were far more Canaanite Jews, and also a general mixture of Romans, Greeks, Syrians, Egyptians, etc.
It is true that Christian salvation was first offered to those in the land of Judea, hence to those who were living there, the Ioudaios; and later, as the Apostles traveled from city to city; it was soon offered to the Greeks.
But it was never offered to the Jews as a preferred class, for you will remember that Christ taught only in hard-to-understand parables when there were Jews around, and explained them privately to His Disciples, explaining that He spoke among the Jews ONLY IN PARABLES
“Lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.”
Both Matthew 13:10-15 and Mark 4:10-12 record this. Christ was taking great pains to see that the Jews could not understand Christianity and be converted.
He was preaching only “to the lost sheep of the House of Israel” the members of the Tribes of Judah and Benjamin, which He said were His sheep, who knew His voice, and followed Him. The Jews He rejected as the children of “their father, the devil.”
Now to sum it up; THE JEWS ARE NOT, AND NEVER WERE ANY PART OF ANY TRIBE OF ISRAEL; they include various mixtures of Egyptians, Babylonians and Canaanites, the Edomites, and, later, the Khazars. Christ was a pure-blooded Israelite of the Tribe of Judah, without any Jewish ancestry; and He was NOT a Jew by religion.
Now think this over carefully; the group of nations which we loosely group under the term “Anglo-Saxon,” (Indicating the people of the British Isles, the Scandinavian nations, most of Germany, Holland and some few of the people of France and Belgium, with the closely-related people found in Austria, some of the Swiss, Czechs, some of the Hungarians, North Italian, and Spanish, and their descendants living in the United States, Canada, Australia, and South Africa, and Rhodesia) are the living descendants of the Israel of the Bible, blood brothers of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
If you are descended from these, the true “people of the Book,”“the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel” accept gladly the Salvation and Leadership of your Risen Savior and King, the Lord Jesus Christ.
You are called as Israelite Christians to stand up for righteousness and decency in the home, the church, the community, the nation, and the world, as Christ directed,
“...teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you...” (Matthew 28:20)
Be proud of your heritage; your ancestry; your Salvation; and your Calling? THAT TRULY IS YOUR HERITAGE.
Don’t let the Jews rob you of your Salvation, your heritage, and birthright through their lies that they are the people of God, for they are not; THE JEWS ARE THE PEOPLE OF SATAN THE DEVIL!
