The Scriptures, particularly the "Old Testament," are historical documents that were written by a group of people located in what we call today the Middle East but should more accurately be described as North East Africa. These historical documents are compiled stories from different authors of those same people.
The information was recorded on scrolls and retrieved from the temple by the Roman army when Jerusalem was captured during 175-134 B.C. (Maccabean era), and again in 65 B.C.-70 A.D. The documented stories describe actual events and prophecies as well as philosophical explanations of the world view of the people. When reading from Genesis to Malachi (Old Testament) you can clearly see how the story follows one group of people and how the Creator (YHWH) chooses them to call his own. The full Bible chronicles their relationship with YHWH and their relationship with the rest of the world from nearby lands such as Egypt and Ethiopia to far away places in Europe; it is an extensive history of our people. It details rules of the society to include their laws, the standards of behavior, the dietary practices, economy, hygiene, politics, building codes, child rearing practices, wars, absolutely everything you need to know. It is a complete documentation of how to build and maintain a nation. The scriptures represent a culture, not an optional religion. The people of the Scriptures are called Ibrim ben Yshra'al (Hebrew Israelites).
Summarized Hebrew Yshra'alite Family Tree and History
Ad’am/Mankind (Gen 5:2) was created from the dust of the earth and went on to populate the world.
The people of the world became evil and only one, Noah, found favor in YHWH’s eyes.
YHWH flooded the earth and Noah’s three sons Shem, Ham and Yapheth (Japheth) repopulated it.
Shem is identified as the father of all the Hebrews! The word "Eber" in the KJV actually is the correct word for "Hebrew" meaning, one from beyond – (Strong’s H5680 + H5674)
Scriptures focus on Shem/Hebrews genealogy and no longer focuses on Ham and Japheth.
Introduction of a Hebrew man named Abram and his relationship with YHWH.
YHWH changes Abram’s name to Abraham and promises to make him a father of many, establish a covenant with his people and be their alah (god/mighty one).
Genesis 32:24-28, Genesis 49, Exodus 1:1-5
Abraham’s grandson, Yaqob (Jacob) wrestles with an angel and prevails and his name is changed to Yshra'al (Israel). Yshra'al has 12 sons who become the patriarchs of the 12 Tribes of Ysra'al. Reuben, Shimon (Simeon), Lewi (Levi), Yahudah (Judah), Zebulun, Yssaskar (Issachar), Dan, Gad, Asher, Naphtali, Yoseph (Joseph), Benyamin (Benjamin).
Yshra'al’s children grew in number and became enslaved by the Egyptians.
While in slavery in Egypt, a Hebrew child, Mosheh (Moses), was saved from the infanticide ordered by Pharoah and was raised by Pharoah's daughter. When he became a man, YHWH summonsed him to release his people, Yshra'al’s descendants, from the slavery ordered by Pharoah.
YHWH frees the children of Yshra'al from slavery in Egypt and establishes his covenant with them.
I Samuel 8:5, 10:19, 11:15
The children of Yshra'al want a king like the rest of the nations around them. YHWH appoints the prophet Samuel to find a king and Saul is chosen. After Saul, David becomes king of Yshra'al and then his son Solomon receives the throne.
1 Kings 11
During Solomon's reign he had many foreign women that made him stray from YHWH. YHWH then removes the kingdom from him except for the house of his father (Yahudah/Judah) and the kingdom gets split in two, Yahudah and Yshra'al. Jeroboam becomes king over Yshra'al.
2 Kings and 2 Chronicles
Both Yshra'al's and Yahudah's kings have periods of obedience and disobedience to YHWH.
2 Kings 17
Northern Kingdom, Yshra'al, is scattered into Africa because of Assyrian (Arab) Empire. Precursors to Islam is initiated (Arab culture mixed with Hebrew culture).
I, II, Maccabees 170-134 B.C.
Describe the wars between the Hebrews and the Romans and you can see how the Hebrews were eventually conquered and the process by which they were forced to accept Gentile ways (abandon the Sabbath, eat swine, reject the Mosaic law and embrace pagan behaviors).
65 B.C.-70 A.D.
In the latter part of this era, General Vaspasian and his son Titus put an end to the land of the Yshra'alites with a great slaughter and millions of Yshra'alites from Southern Kingdom (Tribe of Yahudah) were scattered into Africa.
The New Testament
The Hebrew Yshra'alites have been conquered and have submitted to Rome. The Roman culture of syncretism is used to amalgamate Greco Roman beliefs with the Hebrew's culture. i.e. Sun worship, Zeus worship (Jesus-Iesous: which means Hail Zeus), no sabbath etc... The New Testament is created by the Gentiles and the culture is made into a religion to which Roman's can relate.
Trans-Atlantic Slave trade begins, and Yshra'alites are sold/traded into slavery by Hamites/African's because of religious persecution. They are scattered all over the world.
1600's Genesis 15:13-14
Slavery begins and YHWH's promise to Abraham is fulfilled.
And here we are today!
You may ask yourself, why didn't I know this before? Part of the reason this is not well known, is because there is currently a group of people living in Israel who claim to be the chosen people. Let's look at this some more.
Webster’s Dictionary distinguishes between Israeli and Israelite as:
1: of or relating to the republic of Israel.
2: a native or inhabitant of the republic of Israel.
1: a descendant of the Hebrew patriarch Jacob.
2: of or relating to Israel (Jacob) or the Israelites
Note that the majority of the people who live in the State of Israel today (Israelis) are NOT the people of the Scriptures, they only live in the Republic of Israel. These Jews which make up 85%-92% of the worlds Jews, are actually called Ashkenazi Jews. It is them who claim to be the chosen people of YHWH. But these people could not be the house of Yshra'al. In fact, they actually originate from a place called Khazaria that expanded from Central to Eastern Europe. Between the 7th and 8th century, 20 million of them converted to Judaism from phallic worship by order of their king. Therefore, it is impossible for them to be Hebrew Yshra'alites, because they are Europeans who descended from Yapheth, the father of the Gentiles, not Shem the father of the Hebrews!
“The sons of Yapheth (Japheth); Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah… By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.” Genesis 10:2-3, 5
According to the Westminster Dictionary of the Bible, "Ashkenaz: the eldest son of Gomer. The name, whether originally that of a person or country or tribe denoted a people of the race of Gomer. In the time of Jeremiah they dwelt in the neighborhood of Aarat and Minni, that is, near east Armenia. From this name is derived Ashkenazim, the designation of the Jews of middle and e. Europe."
Additionally, the curses that were set upon the chosen people in Debarim (Deut) 28 is a definite indicator of who the true people are (v45-46). Not to mention that the letter J has never been in the Hebrew, Greek, or Latin language. So the word Jew or Judaism (and many other J names) never existed before the 16th century.
So why are they living in Israel?
“Elohim shall enlarge Yapheth (Ashkenaz), and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem (Hebrews); and Canaan shall be his servant.” Genesis 9:27.
