Blind Israel - Part 7

 The following paragraph is from the eulogy of John C. Breckinridge of Kentucky, when he announced the death of Henry Clay to the United States Senate: "The life of Mr. Clay, sir, is a striking example of the abiding fame which surely awaits the direct and candid statesman. The entire absence of equivocation or disguise in all his acts, was his master-key to the popular heart, for while the people will forgive the errors of a bold and open nature, he sins past forgiveness who deliberately deceives them.

 Hence Mr. Clay, though often defeated in his measures of policy, always secured the respect of his opponents without losing the confidence of his friends. He never paltered in a double sense. The country never was in doubt as to his opinions or his purposes. In all the contests of his time, his position on great public questions was as clear as the sun in the cloudless sky.

 Sir, standing by the grave of this great man, and considering these things, how contemptible does appear the mere legerdemain of politics! What a reproach is his life on that false policy which would trifle with a great and upright people. If I were to write his epitaph, I would inscribe as the highest eulogy, on the stone which shall mark his resting place, ‘Here lies a man who was in public service for fifty years, and never attempted to deceive his countrymen!'"

 What was the secret of a life so exalted in patriotism, honor and principles of righteousness? Horace Greeley tells us in two short paragraphs: "But higher themes engrossed in larger measure his time and thoughts. Mr. Clay had been through life an undoubting believer in Christian revelation, whereof his own father had lived and died a minister, while his mother and his wife were lifelong disciples. Years ago, while yet unvisited by sickness and with the prospect of a serene old age before him, Mr. Clay had united with the Protestant Episcopal Church at Lexington, and had ever since enjoyed its communion. The chaplain of the Senate, Rev. C.M. Butler, was a minister of that church as well as a personal friend of Mr. Clay, and spent much of the winter at the bedside of the dying man.

 Mr. Clay's piety was humble and self-distrustful, but his faith was firm and unclouded; and, though his sufferings were severe and protracted, he was resigned to their infliction as the salutary discipline of a spirit which, in bygone years, had contemplated too fondly and engrossingly the fleeting vanities of earth. No hovel, no hospital, enclosed a Christian soul preparing to bid adieu to its tenement of flesh in more entire renunciation of self-righteousness, in more exclusive reliance on the mercy manifested through the world's Redeemer, than that of Henry Clay."

 A statement along the same line in the address by Mr. Breckinridge, from which we quoted above, is most interesting. Note how the Senator from Kentucky revealed his own Christian faith when he said of Mr. Clay: "Not long before his death, having just returned from Kentucky, I bore to him a token of affection from his excellent wife. Never can I forget his appearance, his manner, or his words. After speaking of his family, his friends, and his country, he changed the conversation to his own future, and looking on me with his fine eye undimmed, and his voice full of its original compass and melody, he said, ‘I am not afraid to die sir. I have hope, faith and some confidence.

 I do not think any man can be entirely certain in regard to his future state, but I have an abiding trust in the merits and mediation of our Savior.' It will assuage the grief of his family to know that he looked hopefully beyond the tomb, and a Christian people will rejoice to hear that such a man in his last hours reposed with simplicity and confidence on the promises of the Gospel."

 Finally, what is the effect of righteousness? The answer is written in those blessed words of Isaiah 32:17-18: "And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever. And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places."

 There, indeed, lies the solution to all our countries problems. Will we miss the answer because of the apparent simplicity of the requirements? Yet righteousness is no simple matter to attain, for it involves the human equation of man's response to God's perfect will. Furthermore, this response must come from the people as a whole; it demands the cleansing of the nation.

 The full effect of righteousness will never be known if it is confined to the inner lives of a few consecrated persons; it is only when the vision comes on a national scale that the promises become a reality. National repentance is essential to national peace and security. Note the call to the nation in Ezekiel 18:30-32: "Therefore I judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord God. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin. Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord God: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye."

 If the citizens of Christian/Israel America, who claim to be the Lord's people, will answer God's call to repentance with humble and contrite hearts, they will come immediately under the glorious promises of Isaiah 41:10-14: "Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel."

 In this way alone lies our hope of survival and peace. In this way only will the weary earth come to know the effect of righteousness. For our God has promised: "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attend unto the prayer that is made in this place. For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually." (2 Chronicles 7:14-16)

 2). God is going to judge America, not only for breaking His Laws, Statues, and Ordinances, but because they have been supporting the anti-christ Jews in the country known today as Israel. Now I know right here is where you will throw this away, because you know that the Jews in Israel are not Israelites, and you will not want to be confused with the truth. However, just in case you are really a truth seeker, I will prove to you that the Jews of the world today are not Israelites, but are the decedents of the Khazars of Russia, of the mixbreeds of Esau and his Canaanite wives, Judah and his Canaanite wife.

Who Are The Pharisees and Are The "Jews" Israel?

 The children of the promise are the literal descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, whereas the children of the flesh are children from other unions such as the descendants of Ishmael and Esau. It also dealt with the genealogies of Christ and the Pharisees and it was concluded that the Pharisees at the time of Christ, like Ishmael and Esau, while of the seed of Abraham, were not children of the promise.

 That this is so is proven by the statement of the High Pirest of the scribes and Pharisees: "And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; And not for that nation only, but that also he (Christ) should gather together in one the children of God that  (the tribes of Israelites) were scattered abroad." (John 11:49-52)

 If the Pharisees, who are, today, called Jews, were not children of the promise, who then is a Jew and who is an Israelite? We will save the subject of Israelites for another publication and just deal with Pharisees and Jews. However, this story begins with Abraham, who had eight children: Isaac from Sarah; Ishmael from the handmaiden Hagar; and six other from Keturah. Of all these children only one child became the child of the promise and that was Isaac. Isaac only had two children: twin boys named Esau and Jacob.

 But again, only one child was the child of the promise and that was Jacob. Later God would change his name to Israel. Jacob/Israel had twelve sons from two wives and two handmaidens and each of these sons, as descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, became children of the promise. (Genesis 38) At this time we are only interested in one of those sons named Judah. Judah had five sons, two of whom God killed, but only two of the remaining three were children of the promise. Throughout Biblical history there have been numerous conflicts between the children of the flesh born in juxtaposition to children of the promise, and some are listed below:

   Abel vs. Cain;
   Shem vs. Ham (Canaan);
   Isaac vs. Ishmael;
   Israel vs. Moabites/Ammonites (Lot's children);
   Jacob vs. Esau/Edomites;
   Israel vs. Amalakites, and
   Pharez and Zerah vs. Shelahites.

 These conflicts between the children of the Promise and the children of the Flesh are later described in Scripture as being conflicts between the good seed and the tares. Scripture records a strange story in the events surrounding the births of each of these children. Without getting into a lengthy discussion, Cain and Abel were born subsequent to the fall and of course Cain slew Abel; Canaanites were cursed because Ham uncovered the nakedness of his father, yet Noah cursed Canaan - not Ham; Moabites/Ammonites due to an incestuous relationship between Lot and his two daughters; Esau is recorded as fighting with his twin brother Jacob in the womb of his mother; Amalakites {of Esau} from the relationship between a concubine and Esau's son born of Esau's Hittite wife; and Shelah born of a Canaanite wife of Judah.
 
 

Blind Israel - Part 8

The Shelah Connection

 To understand that the Pharisees at the time of Christ and those of Jewry in the 20th century are at least partial descendants of the children of the flesh, we must go back and begin with Judah, Jacob's 4th son of Leah and his descendants. The story of Judah's marriage and descendants is recorded in Genesis, Chapter 38.

 Genesis, Chapter 37 ends with Joseph being sold into Egypt and the story of Joseph starts again in Chapter 39. It is both interesting and strange that Chapter 38 should be placed at this particular place in the Scriptures about a subject totally unrelated to the former and latter chapters.

 We are told in verse 1 that Judah "went down from his brethren." This appears to have been an act of poor judgement such as later Dinah exhibited and was raped due to her poor judgement. We are not told the reason for Judah's poor judgement but it begins the history of conflict between Judah and his brothers which will continue till the later separation of the nation into the House of Israel and the House of Judah. Judah, being separated from his family ties, could and did fall prey to the women in the land who were not his kinsmen according to the flesh. We are told that Judah: "...saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name was Shuah; and he took her, and went in unto her." (Genesis 38:2)

 This connection was contrary to the will of God and Judah should have known better from his upbringing if not  the example of his fathers. His indiscretion or poor judgement in forming an alliance with the people in the land was a crime that produced bastard children.

 If this bastardization of Israel were to continue the chosen people would soon be assimilated into surrounding heathenism and would no longer be God's chosen people. Thus we see the necessity for God to separate His people from these heathen peoples.

 "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you." (2 Corinthians 6:17)

 In any event Judah took a Canaanite for a wife and had three bastard sons {sons born from mixed seed}: Er, Onan, and Shelah. We say bastard sons because in the Old Testament a bastard was a child born from a mixed marriage with an Israelite and another race. (See Strong's Concordance) When the time came that Er, Judah's eldest son, was to have a wife, Judah obtained for him a woman named Tamar.

 We are not told how or why, but Er was "wicked in the sight of the Lord" (Genesis 38:7) and the Lord slew him. We are not told what this wickedness was but the word used here also means evil and mischief and these definitions lead many to believe this evil had something to do with the law. Being raised by his Canaanite mother, he would have become indoctrinated in the ways of the pagan Canaanites - not the ways of the Lord.

 According to the law, Onan, Er's younger brother, had to marry Tamar and raise up seed to his elder brother, Er. However, Onan was wicked also, and refused to do this, spilling his seed on the ground. (Genesis 38:9) This was probably because of the threat of losing the inheritance {that is, he would be raising up seed for his brother}, again, possibly from the training he received from his Canaanite mother.

 In any event, God also slew Onan. Once again, according to the law Tamar should have been given to the third son, Shelah, that he might raise up sons for his elder brother. However, by this time Judah must have been just a little bit concerned.

 After all, Tamar had already been the wife of two of his sons and both had been killed by the Lord. Thus it is easy to understand his reluctance. Scripture tells us that Judah told Tamar to wait until Shelah was older; however, when he got older Judah failed or refused to give Tamar to Shelah. Tamar waited and waited but Shelah eventually took another for a wife, apparently with his father's blessing.

 It is recorded in the 45th  chapter of the book of Jasher that Tamar was a daughter from the genealogy of Elam, the son of Shem. That she was a daughter of Shem makes sense in view of what Judah said when he found out she was pregnant with child. Scripture records that it was reported to Judah that: "Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt." (Genesis 38:24)

 Stoning was the normal mode of capital punishment at that time in history - death by fire was not the normal procedure used to execute someone. Therefore it is significant that Judah pronounced death by burning for that was reserved for priests' daughters who brought disgrace upon the sacred office. The law states: "And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her father: she shall be burnt with fire." (Leviticus 21:9) Since Judah pronounced death by fire we are able to conclude that she must have been the daughter of a priest. However, one would think that if she was, she should be aware of the law prohibiting mixed marriages. But perhaps that was not the case.

 Tamar could have been imported from another geographical area as was Rebecca for Isaac. Thus at the time of her arrival and marriage to Er and Onan she could have been unaware of the covenant God had made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel.

 Not being aware of the covenant she would not know that the two men she married were half Canaanite and half Israelite and not legitimate heirs to the promise. By the time Shelah had taken another wife, Tamar was probably educated in the covenant relationship with God and realized that even if she was given to Shelah, any sons from that union would not produce a bloodline heir.

 This is about the only logical reason for her to play the harlot, entrapping Judah to become the father of her children (Pharez and Zerah) at the risk of being put to fiery death. It would also partially explain Judah's response when he found out that he was the father and stated: "She is more righteous than I; forasmuch as I gave her not to Shelah my son." (Genesis 38:26)

 Although Judah may not have totally understood or admitted that his marriage to a Canaanite was in violation of the law, he is, at least, acknowledging that Tamar should have been the mother of children of the birthright. He must have understood this birthright problem sooner or later, as the scepter was not passed to Shelah, Judah's third and only surviving son from Shuah, but to Judah's firstborn son from Tamar who was named Pharez. This is evidenced by the fact that Pharez's name appears in the genealogies of Christ in Matthew 1:3 and Luke 3:23.

 The union of Judah with Tamar produced the twin births of Pharez and Zerah, and once again Judah had three sons: 1). Shelah, who was a bastard {1/2 Canaanite & � of Judah} by his Canaanite wife; 2). Pharez; and 3). Zerah, the latter two both from Tamar. Pharez and Zerah being the sons of Judah, the son of Jacob/Israel, and Tamar the daughter of the genealogy of Shem, were full-blooded Israelites even though they were born out of wedlock. The whole story is recorded in Genesis 38. These births produced three descendant lines from Judah which will be called Pharez-Judah, Zerah-Judah, and Shelah-Judah.

 The question now becomes, what happened to the three descendants of Judah: Pharez, Zerah and Shelah? It will simply be stated at this point in the study that Pharez and Zerah were children of the promise whereas Shelah was a child of the flesh and destined to become the father of the Pharisees. This study will not be concerned with Pharez and Zerah - only the family of Shelah will be addressed.
 


Blind Israel - Part 9

 Shelah-Judah

 We need to keep in mind the fact that a strict genealogy was kept on each tribe. Even though Shelah was a bastard son of Judah, his genealogy is given in Scripture and his descendants can be traced to the city of Elath. In Chronicles it is recorded: "The sons of Judah; Er, and Onan, and Shelah: which three were born unto him of the daughter of Shua the Canaanite. And Er, the firstborn of Judah, was evil in the sight of the LORD; and he slew him. And Tamar his daughter in law bare him Pharez and Zerah. All the sons of Judah were five. The sons of Pharez; Hezron, and Hamul. And the sons of Zerah; Zimri, and Ethan, and Heman, and Calcol, and Dara: five of them in all. And the sons of Carmi; Achar, the troubler of Israel, who transgressed in the thing accursed. And the sons of Ethan; Azariah." (1 Chronicles 2:3-7)

 Verse 3 is unusual, as once a name is dropped from the promised seed line it usually does not appear in later genealogies. For example the descendants of Cain do not appear in the genealogies of Adam in Genesis, Chapter 5, or Matthew 1 or Luke 3.

 It is difficult to determine exactly when the Book of Chronicles was written, however verse 1 of chapter 9 states: "So all Israel were reckoned by genealogies; and, behold, they were written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah, who were carried away to Babylon for their transgression." (1 Chronicles 9:1) Since the first 8 chapters deal with the genealogies of Adam to this statement in verse 1 of chapter 9, which refers to the Babylonian captivity, it seems apparent that this portion of Chronicles was not recorded until sometime after the Babylonian captivity (600 B.C.) - perhaps by Ezra or Nehemiah. Again, all of Judah's sons must be important or they would not be recorded in Scripture, especially since the descendants of Shelah were not children of the promise.

 It should be noted that verses 5 and 6 list the descendants of Pharez and Zerah, and verse 8 begins with Ethan, a son of Zerah. What is missing here are the sons of Shelah. But verse 7 seems to be completely out of place as it lists the genealogy of a person named "Carmi."

 Carmi is not one of the five sons of Judah, nor is he listed in the Genealogies of Pharez or Zerah. The name also appears in 1 Chronicles 4:1, but it is still unclear whose son he was. However, it is most interesting that his son "Achar" is referred to as "the troubler of Israel, who transgressed in the thing accursed." {You can read the story about the thing accursed in Joshua 6:18} While it appears impossible to prove it, it is suggested that "Carmi" and his son "Achar," the troubler of Israel, were in the genealogy of Shelah.

 We mentioned that these names were also listed in Chronicles, chapter 4, as follows: "The sons of Shelah the son of Judah were, Er the father of Lecah, and Laadah the father of Maresbah, and the families of the house of them that wrought fine linen, of the house of Ashbea, And Jokim, and the men of Chozeba, and Joash, and Saraph, who had the dominion in Moab, and Jashubilehem. And these are ancient things. These were the potters, and those that dwelt among plants and hedges; thee they dwell with the king for his work." (1 Chronicles 4:21-23)

 Again there is no mention of "Carmi" nor his son "Achar," but her we do have a reference to these descendants of Shelah being "men of Chozeba." Chozeba was a town in southwestern Judah and is also the town of Chezib of Genesis 38:5 and Achzib of Joshua 15:44.

 The words Chezib, Achzib or Chozeba mean "lying," "deceptive," "disappointing," or "failing." It is also interesting that Shelah-Judah was born in Chezib (Genesis 38:5) and it appears that his descendants centuries later inherited this same city. In Joshua we find that: "This then was the lot of the tribe of the children of Judah by their families; even to the border of Edom the wilderness of Zin southward was the utter most part of the south coast. And Keilab, and Achzib, and Mareshah; nine cities with their villages." (Joshua 15:1, 44)

 Thus we see that the town of "Achzib" was given to some descendants of Judah. Achzib or Chozeba was located in the valley of Elath. Elath was in Old Edom in the valley of Elath and north of Adullum.

 The word "Adullum" should ring a bell as that was the place where Judah went down from his brothers and took a Canaanite for a wife. This was on the extreme southern border of the Southern Kingdom of Judah at the northern end of the Gulf of Aquabah. In fact most scholars seem to be in agreement that this area was actually outside the land inherited by Judah.

 This would make some sense as we know that a bastard could not even enter the congregation, even unto the tenth generation; (Deuteronomy 23:2) therefore it would also make sense that these Shelahites, being bastards, could not inherit land belonging to the children of the promise. But this does not mean that they could not be given land on the southern border of Judah.

 "A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD." (Deuteronomy 23:2)

 The city of Elath was next to Ezion-geber, which would later become Solomon's seaport. Remember now that these Shelahites are � Canaanite, and the word Canaanite is defined in Strong's Concordance as merchants and traders.

 Doesn't it seem logical that merchants and traders would congregate in the cities, and especially in and around a busy seaport where they could engage in trade, commerce, and industry? There is another reference to this city named "Achzib" in the Book of Micah where it states: "The house of Achzib shall be a lie to the kings of Israel." (Micah 1:14)

 Is it just a coincidence that Shelah was born at "Chezib" which is basically the same word as Achzib? Is it coincidence that the word "Achzib" so closely resembles and has the same meaning as "Achar," the troubler of Israel? Remember these words mean "lying," "deceptive," "disappointing," or "falling."

 Was it not a lie that Shelah was a true child of the promise? Would not their existence next to and/or as a part of Israel make any claim they would make as being a descendant of Abraham, ( John 8) entitled to receive the promises, a lie or at the least a clever deception?

 Jews From Elath

 Elath or Eloth was a part of the land of Edom belonging to the descendants of Esau who were called Edomites an later Idumeans. Apparently Elath and Ezion-geber came under the control of Israel in 1040 B.C. by David's conquest of Edom as recorded in 2 Samuel 8:13-14.

 This land is also mentioned as being under the rule of Solomon in approximately 1000 B.C., (1 Kings 9:26 and 2 Chronicles 8:17)  The land passed back into Edomite control in 890 B.C. during the days of Jehoarm, king of Judah. (2 Kings 8:20-22) 80 years later in 810 B.C., the city of Elath was rebuilt under the kingship of Azariah or Uszziah. (2 Kings 14:21-22 and 2 Chronicles 26:1-2)

 This historical background brings us to the time of the "Jews from Elath" as recorded in 2 Kings, Chapter 16, which states: "In the seventeenth year of Pekah the son of Remaliah Ahaz the son of Jotham king of Judah began to reign. Then Rezin king of Syria and Pekah son of Remaliah king of Israel came up to Jerusalem to war; and they besieged Ahaz, but could over come him. At that time Rezin king of Syria recovered Elath to Syria, and drave the Jews from Elath..." ( 2 Kings 16:1, 5-6)

 Keep in mind that the time frame is approximately 750 B.C., which is around 200 years after the split of Israel into the Houses of Judah and Israel in 975 B.C., and just before the beginning of the Assyrian captivity in 721-745 B.C. By this time Jotham was the king of Judah {the two southern tribes of Judah and Benjamin}, and Pekah was the king of Israel {the 10 northern tribes}.

 It is the king of Syria, and Pekah, the king of Israel {not Judah}, who formed an alliance and went  to war against the House of Judah. During that war they were unable to take Jerusalem, but Rezin, king of Syria, was able to recover the city of Elath and "drave the Jews from Elath."
 


Blind Israel - Part 10

 As previously stated, Elath was far south of the area inherited by Judah and was given to Shelah as an inheritance. Again this was probably done because as a bastard, he could not enter the congregation of Israel nor inherit with the children of Israel.

 Remember, these people were part Canaanite, and in Strong's Concordance the word "Canaanite" means merchants and traders. Merchants cannot be merchants except in populated areas and therefore would have a propensity to migrate towards the cities, so it is logical to conclude that they were the ones who resided in Elath and were driven there-from.

 It was from this area called Elath, and this area alone, that Rezin "drave the Jews." Ahaz, king of Judah {Southern Kingdom}, was still in Jerusalem and was never defeated nor was he driven anywhere. Pekah, king of Israel {Northern Kingdom}, apparently returned home.

 Therefore, whatever "Jews" were driven from Elath were only a small portion of people located South of Judah - not all of the House of Judah, and none of the House of Israel. Therefore, the word "Jews," as used in this verse does not include any people from the House of Israel and probably none from the House of Judah. This limits the use of the word "Jew" in the Old Testament to a very small group of people who resided in the town of Elath, who were most likely descendants of Shelah.

 Scripture does not tell us where these so-called "Jews from Elath" went after being driven from Elath, but being traders and merchants they would be city dwellers, and it is probably safe to assume that they moved north to the walled city of Jerusalem. After Rezin "drave the Jews" from Elath the area was again populated but this time by Edomites. The encyclopedia fails to point out who these people were but it has previously been shown that the land South of Judah was occupied by the Shelah branch of Judah - a bastard son from his Canaanite wife.

 According to Biblical scholar Alexander Schiffner: "The first reference to any Jews in Scripture is found in 2 Kings 16:6. The name was applied TO A REMNANT OF JUDAH'S DESCENDANTS OF THE SHELAH BRANCH.

 Shelah-Judah was born in Chezib (Genesis 38:5) and his descendants centuries later inherited his territory. (Joshua 15:1, 13, 44) Remember a strict genealogy was kept of each tribe and branch. (2 Kings 16:5-7; 1 Chronicles 2:1-15; Ezra 2:59, 62, 64; Matthew 1:1-25; Luke 3:23-38) Chezib, (Genesis 38:5) Achzib (Joshua 15:44) and Chozeba (1 Chronicles 4:21-22) refer to one and the same place. It was a town in the lowlands of western Judah and was given to the Shelah branch of Judah for their inheritance.' (Joshua 15:1, 13, 44)

 This then was the lot of the tribe of the children of Judah by their families.' The word Chezib, Achzh or Chozeba means 'deceptive' or 'failing' and the place received its name from a winter spring or brook, which failed in the summer heat. {Symbolic of the failing of the Shela branch of Judah under trial}. It was the place where Judah was at the time of the birth of his half-breed son, Shelah. (Genesis 38:5)

 In 1 Chronicles 4:21-22 it is called 'Chozeba.' it is in the valley of Elath and north of Addulum. Note 2 Kings 16:6 - the first reference to this branch of Judah; 'the Jews of Elath.' The Jews are the remnant' of 'Yehudim' of Judah. This branch of Judah rejected Christ. They are the open witness, 'The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; their tongue and their doings are against the Lord - they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not.' (Isaiah 3:8-9)." (From the Five Sons of Judah, written by Alexander Schiffner, editor, Prophetic Herald, Spokane, WA)

 James Fox, the author of several books, wrote of Shelah: "The reason for the divergence of facial appearance between the true Hebrew or Abrahamic White-Race Men, and the Jews, is that the patriarch Judah disobeyed God's will at the outset by marrying a Canaanitish woman called 'Shua,' (Genesis 38:1-5) producing descendants all half-castes, later known as 'Jews.'" (The Glorious Majesty of His Kingdom, J.S. Fox, 1 st ed., 1958, p. 10) According to these authors, the "Jews of Elath" were the "remnant" of "Yehudim" of Judah, and verses 5 and 6 of 2 Kings, chapter 16, are the first reference to the mongrel Canaanite branch of Judah where they are referred to as "Jews" {actually "Ieue," etc., in the 1611 KJA Version}.

 The use of the word "Jews" in 2 Kings 16:6 rather than "Ieues" has added to the misconception that the Jews are all of Israel, when it is obvious that in this verse only a small group of people were implied - those living in Elath - which omits the entire northern ten tribes and the majority of the House of Judah.

 The major problem with the Jew in Anytown USA's conversations is that the word carries so many definitions and so few seem very want to know fully what he is really talking about or referring to when he uses the term "Jew." Most so-called (c)hristians of today, even those who are of Israelite stock, and are not aware of it, don't want to hear the words, concepts and truth contained in this study.

 Those of Israelite heritage may find some fulfillment in Jeremiah's words, found in Chapter 5:30-31 which sound all too familiar: "A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so; and what will ye do in the end thereof?"

 Some think that the King James Version is the only correct version. This version was written in 1611, but it for sure contains some errors. Look at John 4:22, where Christ tells the woman of Samari: "Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship; for salvation is of the Jews."

 This is a primary script for the problem we face today, for any discerning true Christian Israelite should see this is not a true statement, but rather a false one based on its own merits.  Any Christian should realize the truth that SALVATION DOES NOT COME THROUGH ANY RELIGION OR ANY RACE OF PEOPLE, BUT THROUGH JESUS THE CHRIST.

 There Is No Jewish Race!

 "The Jews As A Race: The findings of physical anthropology show that, contrary to popular view, THERE IS NO JEWISH RACE. Anthropometric measurements of Jewish groups in many parts of the world indicate that they differ greatly from one another with respect to all the important physical characteristics." (The Encyclopedia Britannica (1973), Vol. 12, p. 1054)

 The reason for this, is mixed blood lines through the mixed marriages, which brings about the most mixed racial origins of these people today. On top of that, the majority of the so-called Jews of the world today, are not Jews at all (Revelation 2:9; 3:9) (even with their mixed blood), because their ancestry is that of the Khazars, whose ancestors accepted Judaism about 700-740 A.D., and thus became known as Jews.

 The Encyclopedia Judaica Jerusalem, under the heading of "Anthropology, Physical:" "It is a common assumption, and one that sometimes seems ineradicable even in the face of evidence to the contrary, that the Jews of today constitute a race, a homogeneous entity easily recognizable. From the preceding discussion of the origin and early history of the Jews, it should be clear that in the course of their formation as people and a nation they had already assimilated a variety of racial strains from people moving into the general area they occupied. This had taken place by interbreeding and they by conversion to Judaism of a considerable number of communities...

 Thus, the diversity of the racial and genetic attributes of various Jewish racial classification of them a contradiction in terms. Despite this, many people readily accept the notion that they are a distinct race. This is probably reinforced by the fact that some Jews are recognizable different in appearance from the surrounding population. That many cannot be easily identified is overlooked and the stereotype for some is extended to all, a not uncommon phenomenon." (Encyclopedia Judaica Jerusalem, (1971), Vol. 3, p. 50)

 Perhaps, now, it can be understood why The World Book encyclopedia by the following states: "The Jews were once a sub-type of the Mediterranean race, but they have mixed with other peoples until THE NAME JEW HAS LOST ALL RACIAL MEANING."

 Being a Jew has nothing to do with race: Marilyn Monroe became a Jew; Sammy Davis became a Jew; Elizabeth Taylor became a Jew when she married Eddie Fisher, in June of 1991; Tom Rnold and Roseanne Barr, the TV entertainer, renewed publicly their wedding vows, and he was celebrating his conversion to Judaism; Opra Winfry, the celebrated talk show host, converted to Judaism.

 This is just a short list of many that have converted to Judaism, and who are famous personalities. Therefore, one can easily see, if they are willing to accept the truth; a Jew can be of different races, just as one can be a Catholic, Protestant, Buddhist, Hindu, Moslem and they can be of any race of color.


Blind Israel - Part 11

 In the country known as Israel today, they have a law which states what the Israeli government accepts as a Jew: "In 1970 the Israeli Knesset adopted legislation defining a Jew as one born of a Jewish mother or a convert." (Funk and Wagnall's New Encyclopedia, Vol. 3, p. 50) David Ben Gurion said: "A Jew is anyone who says they are."

 Therefore, it is very clear that anyone can be a convert to Judaism, and it does not depend upon what race he/she belongs to, we are not talking about a "race" of people when we talk about the Jews, we are talking about a people.

 In May of 1991 the government of Israel airlifted 14,087 "Jews" from Ethiopia. Months earlier others of them had been brought to Israel. These were black people who called themselves, "Beta Israel" (House of Israel) "whose ancestors had intermarried with the natives, as the black skin of the modern Falashes indicates."

 These are black people, very unlike most of the other people in Israel today. They are like the Jews of North Africa, the Jews of Jemen, the Jews of Persia, the Jews in India, the Jews of China, the Jews in the Pacific Islands, the Jews of Japan, the Jews of the Philippines, the Jews of the Dutch East Indies, the Jews of New Zealand and the Jews of Latin America, in that they are different nationalities, from different races, and yet are known as "Jews."

 So it is clear for all to see: The so-called Jews of today ARE NOT A RACE OF PEOPLE, BUT A PEOPLE OF MIXED RACES AND ANCESTRY WHOSE COMMON TIE IS WHAT IS KNOWM AS JUDAISM!

 In a book entitled "Races in Europe", the author, William Z. Ripley, states under ethnology: "The findings of physical anthropology show that contrary to all popular view, there is no Jewish race. "OUR CONCLUSION THEN IS FINAL. It is paradoxical yet true, WE AFFIRM. THE JEWS ARE NOT A RACE, BUT ONLY A PEOPLE AFTER ALL."

 The Ferrar Fenton version, which comes from the original Greek text, says: "salvation comes from among the Judeans." Now which way should we Israelites come to know fully the truth of this verse? If Christ came out of the region of Judea and the Hebrew tribe of Judah, then HE is the way, the truth and the life. (John 14:6) Paul planted the first Christian Church in Corinth, teaching that Christ is the Salvation for HIS people. But we hear the resounding common statement, but Pontius Pilate said that He was "King of the Jews."

 But did he really say that as most, deceived, Judeo-Christians believe? There are some who say, "Thank God! My Savior Was Not A Jew!," that there is a historical record found in the Achoko Volume in the Congressional Library in Washington, D.C., containing an official record of one of Pilate's correspondences. He states on pages 137-139: "The Archoko record gives an eye-witness account from Pontius Pilate, who testified that Jesus did not look like, or act like a Jew. Here is the account as it appears in this official record: To Tiberius Caesar, Emperor of Rome Noble Sovereign, Greetings: '...Among various rumors that came to my ears there was one in particular that came to my attention. A young man it was said, had appeared in Galilee, preaching with noble unction a new law in the name of the God who sent him. At first I was apprehensive that his design was to stir up the people against the Romans, but my fears were soon dispelled.

 Jesus of Nazareth spoke rather as a friend of the Romans than of the Jews. One day in passing by the place of Siloe, where there was a great concourse of people, I observed in the midst of the group a young man who was leaning against a tree, calmly addressing the multitude. I was told it was Jesus. This I could easily have suspected, so great was the difference between him and those who listened to him. His golden colored hair and beard gave to his appearance an almost celestial aspect. He appeared to be about thirty years of age. Never have I seen a sweeter or more serene countenance. What a contrast between he and his hearers with their black beards and tawny complexions!...

 Never have I heard in the words of the philosopher, anything that can compare with the maxims of Jesus. One of the rebellious Jews, so numerous in Jerusalem, asked Jesus if it was lawful to give tribute to Caesar, he replied: 'Render unto Caesar the things which belong to Caesar, and unto God the things which are God's...wrote to Jesus requesting an interview with him at the praetorium and he came.' (Think now for a moment on your own, without having some Judeo-Christian preacher tell you that this is fantasy. What would be so strange in this? Even though this meeting is not recorded in the Gospels, we know that most of what Christ did during His three years of public ministry was never recorded) (See John 21:25)

 Pilate's report to Caesar continues: 'You know that in my veins flows the Spanish mixed with Roman blood...When the Nazarene made his appearance, I was walking in my basilic, and my feet seemed fastened with an iron hand to the marble pavement, and I trembled in every limb as does a guilty culprit, though the Nazarene was as calm as innocence itself. When he came up to me and stopped, and by a signal sign seemed to say to me, 'I am here!' though he spoke not a word. For some time I contemplated with admiration and awe, this extraordinary type of man, a type unknown to our numerous painter...There was nothing about him that was repelling in its character and I felt awed and tremulous to approach him.

 Jesus, I said to him at last, 'Jesus of Nazareth, for the last three years I have granted you ample freedom of speech (It is not recorded anywhere, either in the Gospels, or Roman historical records, that the Romans ever attempted to suppress Christ's ministry) nor do I regret it. Your words are those of a sage. I know not whether you have read Socrates or Plato, but this I know, there is in your discourse a majestic simplicity that elevates you above those philosophers...'your blood shall not be spilled,' I said, with deep emotion, 'you are more precious in my estimation on account of your wisdom than all the turbulent and proud Pharisees who abuse the freedoms granted them by Rome. They conspire against Caesar, and convert his bounty into fear, impressing on the unlearned, that Caesar is a tyrant who seeks their ruin...I will protect you against them. My praetorium shall be an asylum both day and night.' I am our obedient servant, Pontius Pilate."

 That anti-Christ power is here; it is already in existence; it already rules the world and has brought violent death to at lest two hundred million (200,000,000) in just this century alone. That "Red" anti-Christ power seized absolute control of Russia at the end of World War I. Nikolai Lenin (1917- 1924), Aleksei Rykov (1924-1930), Vyacheslav Molotov (1930-1941), Joseph Stalin (1941-1953; General Secretary of the Communist Party, 1924-1953), Georgi Malenkov (1953-1955), Nikolai Bulganin (1955-1958), Nikita Khrushchev (1958-1964), Leonid Brezhnev (1964-1982), Yuri Andropov (1982-1984), Konstantin Chernenko (1984-1985), and Mikhail Gorbachev (1985-1990) Yeltsin (1990-Present 1999) the current visible ruler of Russia and their henchmen have killed twenty million (20,000,000) or almost fifteen percent of Russia's population within the first twenty years of their takeover.

 Since that time the Communists have killed another ten to thirty million more; not counting the millions killed in the conquest of their satellite nations. New information on China now indicates that the Red anti-Christ killers have killed in that country almost one hundred and seventy million Chinese since 1949, when the Communist to over control of that country.

 Now we ask the question: What power is it that is over our government which causes us to send billions of dollars in military and economic aid these murderous butchers? It now appears that we are going to begin sending aid to Vietnam and Cambodia, countries who are killing their own people at such a rate that the merchant ships of the world avoid the coasts of Southeast Asia so as to avoid being swamped with the hundreds of thousands who are fleeing for their lives. The human tragedy of the Communist rule in the various countries of the world is almost beyond description and yet our government continues to send them aid whenever they request it. Even to the point of denying our own American/Israel people.


Blind Israel - Part 12

 What is it that is bringing such tribulation upon the people of the world and yet be hidden from our so-called "Ministers" the Clergy of Organized Religion? What is it that rules the world so completely that even non Communist countries cooperate in every way with this mass execution of people who do not wish to live under the Communist rule?

 Can you not see? This could only be possible if the anti-Christ system, that our so-called "Ministers" tell us is to come at some future time, were, and now are, in absolute control of all the governments of the world at the present time! Many use the book of Revelation, especially the vision of the woman of chapter 17 riding upon the red beast, which the angel revealed to John in 17:18 as being, "that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth."

 They also use the second chapter of Thessalonians where it speaks of Christ's return, and says in verses 3 and 4, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped."

 This they say is the prophecy of one man who will be worshiped or obeyed by all the people of the earth as the god or supreme ruler of the entire planet. In verses 8 and 9 it says, "then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders." These passages and a number of others make it quite plain that there will be a power which will rule over all the earth sometime before the return of Jesus. And that that power will be destroyed when Christ returns.

 The controversy between so-called Ministers is not over whether the Bible prophesies of such a power, but as to whether that power will be in existence and the ruler of the earth while Christians are still upon it. Many insist the anti-Christ power will come into existence only after Christians have been raptured away into Heaven.

 But some believe current and past history provides us with all the evidence necessary to prove that power is here now and that it does rule; and that it accounts for the great tribulations in which the earth is currently under going. As part of the more visible evidence of that power, one has only to point to the complete control, which is openly anti- Christ the Red Bolsheviks have over a large number of the nations of the world; their partial control on many others and their hidden control which they exert upon the rest of the nations of the world. And of course do not forget the more than 100,000,000 million victims of the Red Communists in just the past 75 years.

 Notice in 2 Thessalonians it speaks of a time when that man of sin will be revealed. It does not say; "when that man of sin comes." Which imparts the implications that the man of sin is already here; will be ruling and then at some later date he will be revealed. And to whom is he to be revealed? The Saints?

 If the prophets of Baal who inhabit most of the pulpits of America today are correct the Saints will be already raptured out, and if they are gone who will care if that man of sin is revealed? "Mystery Babylon The Great, Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth." Is described in Revelation 17:18 as, "that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth," is just such an entity. A ruling power that is a mystery. In other words, a ruling power that is concealed from most of the people of the United States and the earth.

 Many of us believe "Mystery Babylon" is that great anti-Christ power which the Clergy of Organized Religion expect in the future, but we believe that it is already on earth and very much alive and is already controlling most of the nations of the world, including the Great Zion Nation of America.

 But, think for yourself! Doesn't it make sense to you that the Jews would try and suppress this truth? The insidious forces of the Jews working from within and opposed to all our great traditions are the first and most serious challenge that faces America. There are those who seek to corrupt our youth that they may rule over them, as witnessed by their actions for the past several decades. They are seeking to destroy our unity by stirring up antagonism among the various Christian denominations.

 They, in one way or another, intrude their stooges into many of our highest military and executive offices, the present William Clinton is a perfect example - he has appointed more Jews to office than all of his predecessors combined. Effective in any evil purposes is the current menace of censorship, unnoticed by the general public, and the greater threatened menace of a far more drastic censorship imposed under the name of "Hate Laws."

 Throughout history members of an unassimilated minority have repeatedly been used as individual spies, as when the Parthians used Jews in Rome as spies while the Romans used Jews in Parthia for the same purpose. In stances of espionage, involving the theft of atomic secrets from both Canada and the United States, but those pail in comparison to the espionage which has occurred since that time.

 According to "A History of Palestine from 135 A.D. to Modern Times," by James Parkes, Oxford University Press, New York, 1909, Persians in 614 A.D. invaded Palestine, a part of the Christian Roman Empire of the East, and took Jerusalem.

 Mr. Parkes relates: "There is no doubt that the...Jews aided the Persians with all the men they could muster, and that the help they gave was considerable. Once Jerusalem was in Persian hands a terrible massacre of Christians took place, and the Jews are accused of having taken the lead in this massacre." (A History of Palestine from 135 A.D. to Modern Times, p. 81)

 Another famous betrayal of a country by its Jewish minority took place in Spain. In his "History of the Jews," Vol. III, p. 109, Professor Graetz gives an account of the coming of alien conquerors into Spain, a country which had been organized by the Visigoths, a race closely akin in blood to the English, Swedes, Germans and other peoples of the North Sea area, and well they might because they were part of the True Tribes of Israel.

 "The Jews of Africa, who at various times had emigrated thither from Spain, and their unlucky co-religionists of the Peninsula, made common cause with the Mohametan conqueror, Tarik, who brought over from Africa into Andalusia an army eager for the fray. After the Battle of Xeres (July, 711 A.D.), and the death of Frederic, the last of the Visigothic kings, the victorious Arabs pushed onward, and were everywhere supported by the Jews. In every city that they conquered, the Moslem generals were able to leave but a small garrison of their own troops, as they had need of every man for the subjection of the country; they therefore confided them to the safekeeping of the Jews.
 In this manner the Jews, who but lately had been serfs, now became the masters of the towns of Cordova, Grenada, Malaga, and many others. When Tarik appeared before the capital, Toledo, he found it occupied by a small garrison only, the nobles and clergy having found safety in flight. WHILE THE CHRISTIANS WERE IN CHURCH, PRAYING FOR THE SAFETY OF THEIR COUNTRY AND RELIGION THE JEWS FLUNG OPEN THE GATES TO THE VICTORIOUS ARABS (Palm Sunday, 712), receiving them with acclamations, and thus avenged themselves for the many miseries which had befallen them in the course of a century since the time of Reccared and Sisebut. The capital also was entrusted by Tarik to the custody of the Jews, while he pushed on in pursuit of the cowardly Visigoths, who had sought safety in flight, for the purpose of recovering from them the treasure which they had carried off. Finally, when Musa Ibn-Nosair, the Governor of Africa, brought a second army into Spain and conquered other cities he also delivered them into the custody of the Jews."

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)
