INTRODUCTION The Children of Israel were prophesied to lose the knowledge of who they really are, and in the latter days would not be aware of, nor would they be living according to, their heritage. This is a part of our punishment for disobeying the foundation (the Laws) that was given to us by the Most High, YHWH Elohim. If a people lose the knowledge of who they are, it’s only a matter of time before they slip through the cracks of history to be called ‘proverbs and bywords’ (Deuteronomy 28:37) like, Negro, Black, African-American (for those in the West) or worse. “I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. The ox knows his owner, and the ass, his master’s crib: But Israel does not know, my people do not consider”. Isaiah 1:2-3 Why haven’t we considered things written in the book of Isaiah and other scriptures? When will we ask the vital question: For what reason would the Most High scatter an entire nation of people across the globe, (to the Americas, Europe and through all Asia), to become slaves?? As prophesied, while enslaved, another assumed our identity: Esau, the modern-day Israelis, through his ancient vow of hatred, co-conspiracy and revenge. In this article, you will see that ‘the scriptures’ is “the heritage” given to us to teach to all mankind. It is a HIS-Story book of the so-called Negro who was scattered to the four corners of the globe; our history that explains how and why we became slaves with a “Stolen Identity”. Remember, the book must be fulfilled!! “They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance”. Psalms 83:4 After the flood, YHWH divided the nations according to the 3 sons of Noah. This is the reason why all nations on earth have some type of partial memory of Hebrew culture. From Ham, came the Hamites or true Africans such as Mizriam (Egypt), Cush (Ethiopia) and Canaan (the Canaanites). From Yapheth, are the Isles of the Gentiles divided according to Genesis 10:5, such as the Greeks, Italians (Romans), the Asians, Russians (Medes), the Anglo-Saxons and Scythians (the Welsh, Irish, British/English as well as the Portuguese and Spanish). From Shem, came the Shemites, and the ‘beginning of the Hebrews’. (The difference between the terms “Shemites and Semites” will be addressed later in this segment). The first occurrence of the word is in Genesis 14:13 where Abram is called Hebrew. Hebrew (Strong’s H5674) is a word that comes from the verb (abar 1556) which means to pass
over, or pass through and much more. Hence from Noah to Shem, beginning with Abraham, are the Hebrews: “people from beyond (or who passed through) the flood”.
ESAU VS JACOB (AND ANCIENT ISRAEL) A second division of the nations came through the seed that was called was in Isaac, from Abraham and Sarah. (This means Ishmael, son of Abraham by Hagar, is indeed a Shemite and a Hebrew) however, the calling and the confirmation of the covenants with Abraham would pass to Isaac and from Isaac, to one of his twin sons, Esau and Jacob. Genesis 25 says these twins were fraternal, two different nations, with different physical appearance, occupation, and parental favor. ”And the children struggled together within her; and she said, if it be so, why am I thus? And she went to enquire of YHWH. And YHWH said unto her, two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger. And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb. And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau. And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them. And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a plain man, dwelling in tents. And Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison: but Rebekah loved Jacob”. Genesis 25:2228 Esau, was a lover of the world, who was hairy and what we know as a “red-bone”. Esau (H6215, 6213) means part of the “past, to appoint, displeased” while Jacob (which means supplanter) was a non-hairy or smooth dark-skinned man who dwelled at home. Esau, a daddy’s boy was loved for the “game” of his mouth, and his ‘god’, the belly; while Rebekah loved Jacob. Remember, she questioned YHWH in prayer before they were born. Their divine predestination was reflected in their different ‘natures’ which was highlighted by Esau’s lack of appreciation for spiritual things-Hebrews 12:15,16). “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or, what shall a man give in exchange for his soul”??? - Matthew 16:26 “For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calls; It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated”. Romans 9:10-13 As the eldest son, Esau had the birthright, which is the right or “the inheritance of the firstborn”. Stating he was so hungry he was about to die, Esau sold his birthright to Jacob
for bowl of his pottage of lentils. Because Esau was not "dedicated literally" to YHWH, Jacob was able to obtain and "offer the payment of redemptive money." This transaction was evidence that Esau despised his birthright and after selling it, he simply went his (own) way, not YHWH’s way. (Genesis 25:33-34). Esau’s vow was to prevent Jacob or his descendant from having the dominion of the firstborn, by taking away his life. But with the birthright, the blessing was also bestowed upon Jacob (Genesis 27:27-29; 38-40), which was always Jacob’s, by the election of YHWH. Isaac may have come to understood this as well because he called Jacob and blessed him further: “And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother's father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of Laban thy mother's brother. And Elohim Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people; and give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which Elohim gave unto Abraham”. Genesis 28:1-4 Prophecies of Esau included the only blessing he received from his father: “…thy dwelling shall be the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above; And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck (Genesis 27:39-41). Esau would be small among nations (Jeremiah 49:14-15); he would be utterly despised (Obadiah 1:1-2); he would be confederate with the nations (Ezekiel 35; Psalms 83: 1-8; Psalms 137-6-8); and in these latter days, the seed (males) of Esau would be destroyed out of the earth but his widows (females) would be spared (Jeremiah 49:9-11).
12 PRINCES OF ESAU VS. 12 TRIBES (PRINCES) OF ISRAEL Names of Esau’s descendants (Genesis 6:1-5; 10-43) are Amalak (the Amalakites, the arch-enemy of Israel since the days of Saul), and Teman (the Temanites). Other references to Esau includes the Edomites (of Edom which means red) and the Idumeans (Isaiah 34:46; Ezekiel 35:14-15; Ezekiel 36:4-6) of Idumea (which is a Latin word that also means “red”). The Herodians (yet another term for Esau’s princes) includes all 4 kings of the generations of King Herod, which includes Herod The Great (Matthew 2); Herod Antipas (Matthew 14:1-12 & Luke 23:6-12); Herod Agrippa I (Acts 12); and Herod Agrippa II (Acts 25:13-27, 26:1-32).
ANCIENT ISRAEL The Israelites grew in power during their long 430-year sojourn in Egypt, but became slaves during the last 180 years. Originally called the “Land of Mizriam” (a descendant of Ham), Egypt means “land of bondage”.
When Israel entered the promised land of Canaan, they intermarried with the Africans, descendants of Ham who had possessed the land; the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, and served their gods (Judges 3:1-7). Thus, YHWH gave them up to war with the African king, Cushan-Rishathaim of Mesopotamia, who chastised Israel (via slavery) for 8 years (Judges 3:8). They served Eglon, the Moabite King (Shemites), Amorites and Amalekites (Shemites/Esau) for 18 years (Judges 3:12-14). For 20 years, he sold them into the hand of Jabin, King of Canaan who reigned at Hazor (Judges 4:2-3) and the Midianites for 7 years, with the Amalekites and people of the East [Assyrians and Neo-Syrians (Armeaneans who are both Shemites - Judges 6:1-3, & 33; 7:12) and the Philistines for 40 years (Judges 10 & 13:1), which included Hazael, king of Syria (2 Kings 10:32).
Timeline of the Nations 1,020-1004 BC: Saul is the first King of the Hebrews. [Hammond Almanac, p.788] 1,000 BC: David selects Jerusalem as the capital city of the Hebrews and officially becomes King of all Israel and Judah. 981-918 BC Ahijah, Prophet of Judah, prophesied that 10 tribes of Israel would be separated from Rehoboam, Solomon’s son (the House of David) and given to Jeroboam. 885-874 BC Omri, King of Israel, Father of Ahab, defeated Moab, and allied with Tyre (Phoenicia), resulting in foreign (Hamitic) customs diffusing into the Hebrew kingdom during Ahab’s reign. Omri is mentioned unflatteringly in the Old Testament, who unified the warring tribes of Israel and established Samaria as his capital for the 10 tribes. During the reign of King Solomon, an once again, during the reign of King Ahab, Hamitic (Phoenician) deities were imported and worshipped in Israel. 814 BC:
Phoenicians (Hamites) found the city of Carthage.
811 BC-757 BC Sian-Chien, Prince of Chin, (who was a Hun) successfully defended the Chinese retreat from the northern Huns. In reward, Sian-Chien received from the emperor the state of Chin, assuming the title “Prince of Chin". He was thus the first ruler of the state from which the empire of China got its name. 776 BC
The first Olympiad began in Greece, dedicated to Zeus. [Hellemans p.18]
753 BC: According to tradition, Rome is founded. [Hellemans p.18] (by Romulus and Remus). [Hammond Almanac, p.789] Romans seize the Sabean (Hamite) women, forcefully making them their wives. Three years later, the Sabeans capture Rome, and merge with the Romans into one culture. [The Sabeans were a tribe of tall people (a trait among Hamites). Referring to an African (Ethiopian) people living in Nubia who migrated to Yemen (southern Egypt and northern Sudan today), they are mentioned in Isa 45:14. By the time of Joel 3:8, they are a nation to whom the Judeans sell peoples captured from Tyre, Sidon, and Philistia (Hamites). The close connection between the Arabian Sabeans and the African Sabeans described in (Isa 45:14) is also due to the fact that both Ham and Shem had descendants named Sheba. In antiquity, Job 1:14-15, the Sabeans are nomads living in north Arabian in the vicinity of Tema (Job 6:19) who are raiders rather than traders. (Tema is a city of one of the Princes of Esau who settled in Timmna)].
728-660 BC Kallinos,.. Ephesus located in Ionia (within Asia Minor), was invaded from southern Russia (the Medes).
