The Daughter of My People: Black Hebrews In America – Part 1

The Daughter of My People: Black Hebrews In America – Part 1

The Awakening
Many people refer to Jeremiah as "the weeping prophet", but why was he weeping? It was because he saw the descendants of Israel enslaved in America, how they were being treated, and ultimately the wrath of God that would be poured out upon America for doing so. In scripture, Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Zephaniah refer to the future descendants of Israel as a "daughter": The daughter of my people. The daughter of my dispersed. These three prophets saw a time in the future when Israel would be treated so terribly that it brought Jeremiah to tears. But how do we know that these references are talking about Hebrews in America? Let's start by laying a solid foundation using scripture and then building upon that. The Location of Israel's Descendants Thankfully we don't h...
Unmasking The Gentiles: Salvation For All Mankind – Part 5

Unmasking The Gentiles: Salvation For All Mankind – Part 5

The Gentiles
Believe it or not, there are some people that don't think salvation is available to all mankind through the sacrifice of Christ. This false teaching is purely based on hate, and so they twist scriptures in order to make the claim that Hebrews somehow switch lineage from Shem to Japheth just by saying so. It doesn't work like that. In this study we're going to look at what the Old and New Testaments have to say about salvation and the Gentiles. Let's start by looking at the promise made to Abraham. God's Promise To Abraham In the Old Testament there are several occasions where God makes unconditional promises to Abraham based on faith alone, and not whether or not he obeyed the law. One of these promises is referenced three time, but the details are vague until they're pu...
Unmasking The Gentiles: The Identity of The Gowyim – Part 4

Unmasking The Gentiles: The Identity of The Gowyim – Part 4

The Gentiles
As we get deeper into this study on the Gentiles, it wouldn't be complete without a word study on the words "Gentile" and "Heathen" (coming soon). Much of what we believe concerning the Gentiles is a result of Europeanized teachings that have been passed down for generations. In almost every case, we can prove that these teachings are nothing more than deception, simply by studying scripture. The reason we need to understand the meaning of the word is because there are two very deceptive teachings being circulated: BHI Camps: Teach that Hebrews became Gentiles and therefore, the Gospel only applies to them. This false teaching attempts to exclude certain groups from salvation even though it requires a complete fabrication and twisting of scripture to maintain this beli...
Hiding Israel: The Disappearance of Judah From Africa – Part 3

Hiding Israel: The Disappearance of Judah From Africa – Part 3

The Awakening
Why did the Kingdom of Judah suddenly disappear from all maps in the mid to late 1700s? Not only did the Kingdom of Judah appear on maps prior to the mid 1700s, but they appeared on multiple maps made by multiple cartographers, and always in the same location... the "slave coast" of West Africa. Suggested Reading Hiding Israel: How The Hebrews Disappeared From History - Part 1 Hiding Israel: The White Washing of Israel - Part 2 Slavery and Not Migration The common myth within the Christian church is that Israel migrated all of the world and mixed in with other people, but that's not what scripture says. Scripture makes it 100% clear that the Hebrews would be scattered via slavery and not migration. "The cities of the south shall be shut up, and none shall op...
Hiding Israel: The White Washing of History – Part 2

Hiding Israel: The White Washing of History – Part 2

The Awakening
Not only was the multinational plot to hide Israel carried out during the Transatlantic Slave Trade, but the ongoing white washing of all things ethnic continues to play a major role in hiding the truth about who the Hebrews were and are. Pictures Worth A Thousand Words One of the most amazing things about scripture are the warnings that were given far in advance. While some books that use to be part of the official canon were removed, their warnings still ring true. One warning in particular points to a campaign of outright deception through the painting of false images: "Wherefore the Israelites assembled themselves together, and came to Maspha, over against Jerusalem; for in Maspha was the place where they prayed aforetime in Israel. Then they fasted that day, and p...
Zipporah: The Midianite Wife of Moses

Zipporah: The Midianite Wife of Moses

The Shemites
Zipporah was one of seven Midianite sisters that mistook Moses for an Egyptian after he saved them from the men at the well (Exodus 2:16-19). Her father Jethro was the priest of Midian, and it was he that gave Zipporah to Moses to marry. While she is introduced early in Exodus, very little is said about her. In fact, she's only mentioned three times in scripture. Zipporah: meaning bird or little bird. The First Wife of Moses What isn't immediately obvious in scripture is that Moses had two wives and Zipporah was the first. This is actually a topic that is debated often, but scripture is clear that Moses married two different women from two different lineages. We can prove that by tracing their lineages in scripture. Zipporah was a descendant of Abraham's son...

Kum-Ba-Yah: Did Black Slaves Sing Songs In Hebrew?

Kum-Ba-Yah: Did Black Slaves Sing Songs In Hebrew?

The Awakening
Many of us have heard and even sang Kumbaya at some point in our lives, but most people aren't aware of the origin of the song or the meaning of the words. When I was in elementary school, we were told that it meant "come by here", and that's what myself and many others have believed for a long time. Here is a break down of the words in Hebrew. Kum (Qum): Strong's #6965 - Stand up, arise Ba: Doesn't have any meaning alone in Hebrew, but may be an abbreviation for Abba, which means "father" (unconfirmed). Yah: Strong's #3050 - This word is translated as LORD in scripture when referring to the God of Israel. Loosely translated, the lyrics seems to mean "arise father God" and NOT "come by here" as we've been told. This song seems to be a remnant of the Hebrew langu...
Apollos: African Born Jew and Apostle

Apollos: African Born Jew and Apostle

Hidden History
Apollos is only mentioned ten times in the New Testament, and it is from one of those mentions that we learn that he was born in Africa. This doesn't mean that his lineage was African, because scripture also says that he was definitely a Jew. "And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus." - Acts 18:24 Although mainstream Christianity loves to present a Eurocentric view of the Bible, Apollos was just one of many apostles that was either described as having black skin or originated from some part of Africa.
