Who Are the Israelites?
When closely examining the text, The Holy Bible has always revolved around the prodigious, extensive history of God’s chosen people; the Israelites. The name “Israel” itself by definition commonly means “Prince of the Power” or “Prince of God”. This honorable appellation or title was given to Jacob, the son of Isaac and Rebekah after his encounter and victory over the angel whilst wrestling in the book of Genesis chapter 32.
24 "And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.
25 And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him.
26 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.
27 And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.
28 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.”
Thus, Jacob having borne unto him twelve sons namely Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulon, Joseph and Benjamin, became the forefather of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.
Throughout the course of history, many have been inquiring about which nation on earth is the rightful heir tied to the rich history and lineage of the children of Israel. It is often said and more commonly accepted that the Jewish people that reside in Israel today are the true heirs, claiming the history as their own. However, what is also universally forgotten about is the clue that God gave to his people in the latter times that would help; the prophecy that was bound to happen to the children of Israel written in the book of Jeremiah chapter 17.
“4 And thou, even thyself, shalt discontinue from thine heritage that I gave thee; and I will cause thee to serve thine enemies in the land which thou knowest not: for ye have kindled a fire in mine anger, which shall burn for ever.”
The Most High’s words recorded by the prophet Jeremiah stated that the true descendants of the Israelites would not even remember who they were! Why is this pivotal some may ask? This takes us to what Moses told the Israelites in the wilderness after the exodus out of the land of Egypt back in the book of Deuteronomy chapter 28.
“15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:”
Moses by the spirit of the Most High warned his people that if they broke his commandments and laws, specific curses would dawn upon them forever (this forever translates into an extensive period of time.) In fact, according to verse 46, these curses would be so specific that it would detail who the true people are today.
“46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.”
Let us take a look at some of the curses that fell upon the children of Israel in Deuteronomy chapter 28. This should give us a clue as to which people have been or are currently being affected by them.
“16 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.
17 Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store.”
When considering so called Blacks, Hispanics and Native Americans during the history of 1492, and 1619 where slavery and conquest were legal and prominent businesses, those people were altogether cursed in the cities and in the fields. Even up until today, the places where so called African Americans & Hispanics would reside will be cursed (e.g. in the ghettos, slums etc.), no matter where they are located in the earth. Likewise the Native American Indians forced to reside in reservations. They were altogether cursed in the field and forced to pick cotton, sugarcane, tobacco and many more crops against their will. Cursed shall by the basket and thy store refers to the businesses and economy. As a collective community of people, the bible prophesied they would be unsuccessful in any business they do.
“29 And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee.”
As a nation, they have not prospered in their ways to better their condition despite the constant attempts for change. Blacks, Hispanics and Native Americans are oppressed together as a nation of people by enslavement, poor education, welfare and housing, forced to use an unjust law and court system, police brutality, racism and discrimination and ultimately nations benefitting off of their hard labor. No man was able to redeem these people from the aforementioned.
“30 Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof.”
When the Spaniards travelled over to the western world on their conquest, they would rape many of the slave’s wives, some even in the presence of the male slave to crush his spirit. These very slaves built the master’s houses on their respectful plantations but were not allowed to dwell in. Likewise they toiled day and night in the vineyards cultivating crops, but were not able to enjoy them for themselves.
“32 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long; and there shall be no might in thine hand.”
“41 Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.”
The slaves would frequently have their sons and their daughters stolen taken from them to be sold to another slave master in another state. The slaves did not have power to get their children back because they had no military might. This is known especially during the Trans-Atlantic Slave trade period.
“36 The Lord shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone.”
“64 And the Lord shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.”
When the Conquistadors came over to the western world, the indigenous people did not understand their language. They also brought their image of a Caucasian Jesus Christ, namely Cesare Borgia and forced both the negroe slaves and natives to worship him under the false religion of Christianity. If the slaves disobeyed this, they would be killed or made a public example. Blacks, Hispanics and Natives would eventually be scattered and sold into every nation as products or materials, commonly known as chattel slavery.
“37 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the Lord shall lead thee.”
A proverb means a stereotype, and a byword translates into a nick-name. Certain stereotypes that are upon these people are that they are lazy, aggressive, whores and criminals, uneducated etc. Likewise with the so called Hispanics and Natives, they share degrading stereotypes. Instead of being referred to as the children of Israel, they are called African American, Latino, and Indian etc. More degrading terms include Nigger, Wetback, Coon, porch-monkey and the list goes on.
“43 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.
44 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.”
The stranger was originally the Europeans when they came and conquered this people, bringing them to a low state in slavery. Now today, in the communities of Blacks Hispanics and natives, they generally do not own much for themselves and must resort to outside help (other nations that set up businesses). As a nation they are not able to lend anything to benefit other nations, but they themselves must receive help. Blacks, Hispanics and Natives are the number one consumers on the earth and at the same time produce the least.
“48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the Lord shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.”
In slavery these people served the so called White man for food, clothing, and shelter. During this time, yokes of iron were literally placed upon the slave’s necks, hands, and feet to keep them from escaping. Blacks, Hispanics and Natives were destroyed mentally by receiving a false identity, a false religion and false hopes and dreams in the place of their slavery. Bringing it up to today, they still are in servitude in America’s system having to work for everything they have based off of the laws of the land that was created by their oppressors. If they want an education they must learn from them, if they want to travel they must be processed by them, if they want to start a business or be certified I anything that they do, they must receive permission by the system of their oppressors.
“49 The Lord shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;
50 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young:”
The symbol of the Spaniards travelling western was the eagle, the bible is very descriptive on what it is talking about. Some prominent conquistadors known are Ponce De Leon, Christopher Columbus, Pissarro and Hernan Cortez. The slaves did not understand the language of the Spaniards when they came over. They were so brutal that they placed everyone into chains and did not care if the individual was a child or elderly.
“61 Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the Lord bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.”
Blacks & Hispanics are amongst the highest ratings of STD’s in their communities, and suffer from many other plagues such as AIDS, Gonorrhea, Diabetes, Cancer, and Syphilis etc. which are not written in the bible.
“68 And the Lord shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.”
Egypt in this verse refers back to Exodus chapter 20 and verse 2, meaning the House of Bondage. The children of Israel were prophesied to be brought again into bondage or slavery against via slave ships. During the Trans-Atlantic Slave trade, Black and Hispanics were brought to the Americas (Representing Slavery or Modern day Egypt) via cargo slave ships to serve their enslavement to the so called white-man. They did not see their homeland Jerusalem again as a nation of people, and were then sold to slave masters throughout the country via auction slave blocks. No man was able to redeem this people during years of oppression in America, though many such as Nat Turner, Martin L. King Jr., Malcom X, Marcus Garvey and others have tried.
After examining all of the scriptures and history coupled together, there should be no doubt as to who the children of Israel are, because no other nation went through these specific curses like they did according to the book of Daniel chapter 9 and verse 12.
“12 And he hath confirmed his words, which he spake against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole heaven hath not been done as hath been done upon
