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 put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, And laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.” – 1 Maccabees 3:46-48

Many people ask “what difference does it make what color they were?” Here’s the problem with that question: if it didn’t make a difference, there would be no need to change their depictions to begin with. The only reason to change the race of a person is to change the perception that people have of that person. Here are a few examples for you to think about:

  • Changing the Hebrews from black to white.
  • Changing Christ from black to white.
  • Changing Egyptians from black to white.

Based on my own personal experiences with this website and posting on Facebook, there is a clear difference in the way people respond to a black Christ vs a white Christ. By simply posting a picture of a black Christ without any commentary other than “oldest known picture of Christ”, I received the following comments:

  • You’re making salvation about race.
  • You’re being divisive.
  • Does that mean God loves white people less?
  • Are you saying God loves black people more?
  • Are you saying only black people can be saved?

There were lots more comments, but the notion of a black Christ completely changes most people’s perception of salvation, as if Christ couldn’t still be loving and forgiving to all people because he had black skin.

Flirting With Blasphemy

So let’s ask an honest question: how many of the facts are people allowed to change before it is considered blasphemy? Here’s what I mean:

  • If Jesus was a man, is it OK to change his gender to a woman?
  • If Jesus was heterosexual, is it OK to change his sexual preference to homosexual?
  • If Jesus had black skin, is it OK to change his skin color to white?

Many of the same people that would firmly stand against the first two, are usually willing to make an exception for the third, even though they may admit that Jesus was not white. There is a clear double standard when it comes to the ethnicity of Christ, that we simply wouldn’t allow in other areas.

The Renaissance Period

From 1300 A.D – 1700 A.D. European painters spent their time repainting every black image of Biblical people as white. During this 400 year period, a people that were always viewed as black were essentially erased from history and replaced by Gentiles.

Images of Deception

The white washing of Hebrew figures wasn’t an accident. It was a 400 year plan to erase true Israel from the pages of history and replace them with Gentile images. While we don’t see this plot to subvert the truth via images in scripture, it does appear in the Apocryphal book of 1 Maccabees, written in the 2nd century A.D.

“Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes,And laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.” – 1 Maccabees 3:47-48

As we can see, The Renaissance Period didn’t just happen by coincidence. Chances are it was very much planned because images are more powerful than words will ever be. This is a subject I’m covering picture by picture on Minister Fortson.com. Here are the first three images I’ve addressed so far:

Modernized Deception

With the invention of the TV and later the internet, we can now see continuous images of a European Christ in TV shows and movies. Mel Gibson was praised for Passion of The Christ because he cast and somewhat ethnic looking, but very much Eruopean Jim Caviezel to play the role of Christ.

On the flip side of that, when we finally did get the chance to see a black Christ on TV, it came in the form of “Black Jesus”, which was a blasphemous depiction of Christ as a ghetto, homeless, black man without a job. It’s images like these that constantly reinforce people’s subconscious prejudices concerning a black Christ.

Shows like the above only push those on the fence away, while adding credibility to the claims that Christ wasn’t black, and lead to non blacks to reject the idea of a black Christ as foolishness. Unfortunately, there’s only so much we can do without multi-million dollar budgets to wage a counter campaign to fight against shows like Black Jesus.

While we don’t have ridiculous budgets to spend fighting false  perceptions, what we do have are friends and social media. The best thing we can do is share information whenever we find it. If everyone just shared the information they found with people in their circle, and so on, we could awaken many more people to who the Hebrews really are. So take a moment and share this study on any of your social media pages.

The Fruits of Deception

The deception of a white Israel has endured for over 700 years and as a result, many people of all colors are content with believing in a white Israel, but are completely opposed to the notion of a black Israel. Even some black people refuse to believe that Christianity is anything other than the white man’s religion, and do not believe that the Bible was written by black people.

The only way to combat this deception is by continuously sharing with people of all races, but with a main focus on waking up Israel. Thanks to the internet and social media more people are waking up to the truth daily and it’ll only continue to snowball until they can no longer ignore the truth.

    I was one of those people who believed that colour doesn’t matter. Through my husband and deep research I found out that the truth is colour does matter in every way of life. I live in germany, and even though I am german, my husband is an african, I feel it every day on my own how people get different treatment just because of their colour.
    My people should be deeply ashamed of how they treat other people.

    Jeremiah 16:19-20
    O Lord, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit. Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they are no gods?
