Re: The Hegelian Dialectic
Dialectic involves three aspects: thesis, antithesis, and synthesis. These sound complex, but “thesis” and “antithesis” are simply names for two opposites. “Synthesis” is a word for the compromise people reach in order to come to some form of agreement.
Here’s the problem:
What if the thesis happens to be the truth? If one side is the truth, then the other side —antithesis— has to be a lie. But what is the synthesis? Any compromise between truth and a lie is also a lie. So, actually, if you talk about which side wins, the lie wins out, because a lie is always a lie. It never becomes the truth. Truth compromised is still a lie.
WHY THE CLAIM THAT MOST ISRAELITES ARE AFRICAN IS NOT BIBLICAL
In the last several months I have listened to several videos directed at African American communities perpetuating an obvious lie that I would like to address on this page. The common theme in all of these videos is the attempt to 'prove' that all descendants of the house of Israel are black Africans and that, by extrapolation, all white men are their Edomic adversaries. The arguments used in these videos are always emotionally inflammatory, illogical and biblically incorrect. I will try to list the most prominent ones here for you to research and evaluate for yourselves.
Many of these presentations begin by showing images of Egyptian art that depicts the pharaonic line as having the distinctive facial features of the black African - broad noses, large lips, etc. The suggestion is that because the Egyptians were black this somehow means the twelve tribes of Israel were also black. There is never a clear explanation as to how one is to make that logical leap unless, of course, they are suggesting the possibility of some type of osmotic genetic transfer of which I am not yet aware. The biblical text clearly states that Abraham & Sarai who received the promise from God that their seed would be the great nation of Israel, were semitic SYRIANS.
The words of Moses to the Israelites:
And thou shalt speak and say before the Lord thy God,
A Syrian ready to perish was my father
and he went down into Egypt
and sojourned there with a few,
and became there a nation, great, mighty, and populous
(after 430 years)....
If you have read your bible then you would know that the Egyptians enslaved the Israelites for about 400 years. A nation rarely, if ever, enslaves groups of people that are of the same or similar race. What's more, the nation of Israel which consisted of sheep herders lived in Goshen, well outside of the areas populated by Egyptians. In fact, the Egyptians considered it an abomination to cohort with them so there was little opportunity for inter-marriage.
Joseph's instructions to his brethren were these:
33 And it shall come to pass,
when Pharaoh shall call you, and shall say,
What is your occupation?
34 That ye shall say,
Thy servants' trade hath been about cattle from our youth even until now,
both we, and also our fathers:
that ye may dwell in the land of Goshen;
for every shepherd is an abomination unto the Egyptians.
There were only 2 Hebrews that lived among the Egyptians. These were Joseph & Moses. Joseph may have married a black woman. The bible states only that Pharaoh gave him the daughter of an Egyptian priest. However, Moses definitely married a black woman, but his wife was an Ethiopian from the land of Midian, not an Egyptian.
And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses
because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married:
for he had married an Ethiopian woman.
Thus, it is possible that the tribes of Manasseh and Ephraim descended from Joseph are mixed with Negro blood, while we know that a portion of the Mosaic Levites is definitely a hybrid race. Moreover, Moses' father-in-law, Jethro from Midian, remained with Moses in the wilderness and became part of the 'strangers' that were adopted into the house of Israel. This community of Medianites is also referred to as the 'Kenites' in Samuel 15:6. In fact, today it is fairly common knowledge that the Ethiopian (aka-Midianite or Kenite) culture remains staunchly loyal to YHWH, God of the Israelites. In spite of these clear historical accounts and the long lists of biblical geneologies that have been pain-stakingly preserved in Old Testament scripture, however, the current falsehood being perpetuated among the gullible is that ALL members of the house of Israel are black Africans.
Another popularized argument, one that is meant to reinforce the black phaoronic bloodline issue, refers to the fact that Jacob's son Joseph was not identified as a racial oddity by his Israelite brothers when they failed to recognize him after many years of separation, believing instead that he was a legitimate Eyptian authority figure. Therefore, the logic goes, it may be assumed that Joseph appeared to them as just another black man belonging to the pharaonic line. I would argue, however, that Joseph being a semitic dessert-dweller would have been sufficiently dark-skinned to not raise the eyebrows of the Israelite strangers new to Egyptian territory. In addition, I would like to point out that Joseph's brothers had earlier sold him as a slave to a 'Midianite' caravan. The Midianites being black African would probably had to have considered Joseph to be of an inferior race in order to consider the purchase a viable one.
Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen;
and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit,
and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for twenty pieces of silver:
and they brought Joseph into Egypt.
(Please note that this scripture refers to the Ishmeelites who,
if the Egyptians were black-skinned,
were also black-skinned.
The mother of Ishmael, Hagar, was an Egyptian woman
who had relocated back to Egypt with her son
who later married an Eyptian woman.
And he (Ishmael) dwelt in the wilderness of Paran:
and his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt.)
Another argument is that when Miriam, Moses' sister, was afflicted with leprosy the 'whiteness' of her diseased skin was scripturally noted as remarkable, the inference being that her skin must have been black in contrast to the leprotic palor. This logic fails when one considers the fact that Miriam was part of the Israelite slave race that built the 'treasure' cities of Egypt. She spent her entire life enduring unusually hard labor under the relentless desert sun. There is a metabolic process white or semitic people go through under such conditions. It is called tanning. Examine the 'evidence' of this false reasoning for yourselves:
And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle;
Miriam became leprous, white as snow....
Next, there is the argument that Solomon, according to nonbiblical sources, mated with the Queen of Sheba from Ethiopia. This reasoning embraces the non-scriptural belief that the Ethiopians became Israelite loyalists only after she bore their love child, Menahem. Yet, according to scripture, while the Ethiopians were loyal to the Father of Christ since the days of Moses, it was Solomon that betrayed Jehovah by marrying 700 'strange' women and taking 300 concubines, delving heavily into their secrets of dark magic. If you read the book of Ecclesiastes you would see just how much Solomon regretted in his old age having taken the wrong path. It was for this betrayal that YHWH caused most of the house of Israel (10 tribes) to be removed from the territory of Solomon's son, King Rehoboam. MOREOVER, THE DIVINE KINGSHIP LINE OF CHRIST WAS PASSED FROM KING SOLOMON TO HIS BROTHER NATHAN (read Matthew chap 1). Anyone looking for a messiah that comes via the line of Solomon is seeking the 'black' (as in Satanic) version.
Then there is the logic as it relates to the birth of Abraham's twin grandsons, Jacob and Esau. This is how the bible describes the event:
And Isaac (son of Abraham) intreated the Lord for his wife,
because she was barren:
and the Lord was intreated of him,
and Rebekah his wife conceived.
22 And the children struggled together within her;
and she said, If it be so, why am I thus?
And she went to enquire of the Lord.
23 And the Lord 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.
24 And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold,
there were twins in her womb.
25 And the first came out red,
all over like an hairy garment;
and they called his name Esau.
Esau, as it was scripturally noted, came out of Rebecca's womb 'red and hairy'. Therefore, goes the argument, if Esau was so obviously a 'white' man, one may infer that Jacob was a non-white, black African. I myself come from a family of dark-haired, dark-eyed Italians. When my cousin was born with light blond hair and green eyes it was certainly note-worthy. However, the rest of the family did not jump to the conclusion that, therefore, the we must be of black African descent!
Then there is this statement made by Job:
My skin is black upon me,
and my bones are burned with heat.
OK, so Job clearly did state that his skin was black. However, black skin in the desert sun in the bible was typically associated with disease or starvation. It is fairly obvious that in this passage Job is in the process of lamenting his condition. Moreover, the book of Job is honored as the first of all the scriptural books, meaning it was written prior to the Mosaic writings. Thus, Job cannot be considered a Hebrew. In fact, many biblical scholars believe that Job was actually the duke Jobab descended from the line of Esau. If this is indeed the case then it is relevant to point out that Esau had married an Egyptian (black) Ishmaelite which in itself may have accounted for the blackness of Job's skin.
Then went Esau unto Ishmael,
and took unto the wives which he had Mahalath
the daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son,
the sister of Nebajoth, to be his wife.
Another video I watched spoke about Noah as a baby described in the book of Enoch. This is the passage in question:
And after some days my son Methuselah took a wife for his son Lamech,
and she becamepregnant by him and bore a son (Noah).
And his body was white as snow and red as the blooming of a rose,
and the hair of his head †and his long locks were white as wool,
and his eyes beautiful†.
And when he opened his eyes,
he lighted up the whole house like the sun,
and the whole house was very bright.
And thereupon he arose in the hands of the midwife, opened his mouth,
and †conversed with† the Lord of righteousness.
And his father Lamech was afraid of him and fled,
and came to his father Methuselah.
And he said unto him: 'I have begotten a strange son,
diverse from and unlike man,
and resembling the sons of the God of heaven;
and his nature is different and he is not like us,
and his eyes are as the rays of the sun,
and his countenance is glorious.
And it seems to me that he is not sprung from me but from the angels,
and I fear that in his days a wonder may be wrought on the earth.
Book of Enoch chapter 151:1-6
(translation R.H. Charles)
In this particular video the commentator drew attention to the fact that as a baby Noah was said to have looked like the 'sons of the God of heaven' (aka 'angels'). The first biblical mention of the 'sons of God' is in Genesis where it speaks about the fallen angels mating with earth women.
And it came to pass,
when men began to multiply on the face of the earth,
and daughters were born unto them,
That the sons of God (angels) saw the daughters of men that they were fair;
and they took them wives of all which they chose.
As we can all agree, this was a malicious act of genetic corruption for the human species from the perspective of the Elohim. According to the book of Enoch, these angels further betrayed our Creators by making a league with the society of Ha Satan to become its false ministers upon the earth, serving as the expert seducers and liars that prevent humanity from discovering its true identity.
Based solely upon Lamech's description of his son, Noah, given in the Enochian passage you have just read, the video's commentator conjectured that Noah was a descendant of this ignomous race of (fallen) angels and that, therefore, all white-faced babies must also be offspring of the unholy angelic union with human women. What he failed to mention was the fact that Lamech was not describing his son Noah as if he were a grotesque Nephillim hybrid. Rather, he referred to Noah's appearance as 'glorious'. True, I confess I do not fully understand why Noah should have been compared to the appearance of angels. However, I do know that biblical scripture very clearly describes Noah as having been genetically perfect, which evidently was an important condition in his selection to survive the flood.
These are the generations of Noah:
Noah was a just man
and perfect in his generations,
and Noah walked with God.
Even more importantly, perhaps, is the fact that Moses' face was viewed by the Israelites has having a similar brightness after he descended from having spent a second period of forty days and forty nights on the mountaintop speaking with YHWH. As, in the case of Lamech, the people were frightened by his image.
And it came to pass,
when Moses came down from mount Sinai
with the two tables of testimony in Moses' hand,
when he came down from the mount,
that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him.
And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses,
behold, the skin of his face shone;
and they were afraid to come nigh him.
Certainly, the brightness of skin described in both cases is not the evidence the any honest person would use to 'prove' that the all white people are descended from the devil's stock unless, of course, they were trying out their talent at standup comedy.
Lastly, there is the commonly sited issue of the curse spoken by Moses upon the Israelites at the end of his life that resonates particularly with those committed to finding their evidential justification within the history of black slavery. This argument states that African slavery sufficiently satisfied the conditions of the curse as rendered by Moses. It is an unfortunate reality that African Americans continue to be fettered with the psychological burden of having to search for some meaning that could account for the senseless generational anguish they have had to endure, but the reality is that most segments of humanity have had to come to terms at some point with the fact that innocent life everywhere has been cyclically and mercilessly brutalized throughout human history. If this world were not filled with mindless injustice Christ never would have had to take on the role of messiah, now would he?
Below are listed the portions of the curse believed to describe the plight of the African slave in America:
Moses' words to the Israelites:
15But it shall come to pass,
if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God,
to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day;
that all these curses shall come upon thee,
and overtake thee....
20....The Lord shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke,
in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do,
until thou be destroyed,
and until thou perish quickly;
because of the wickedness of thy doings,
whereby thou hast forsaken me....
23 ....And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass,
and the earth that is under thee shall be iron....
25 ....The Lord shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies:
thou shalt go out one way against them,
and flee seven ways before them:
and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth....
28 ....The Lord shall smite thee with madness,
and blindness, and astonishment of heart:
29 And thou shalt grope at noonday,
as the blind gropeth in darkness,
and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways:
and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore,
and no man shall save thee.
30 Thou shalt betroth a wife,
and another man shall lie with her:
thou shalt build an house,
and thou shalt not dwell therein:
thou shalt plant a vineyard,
and shalt not gather the grapes thereof....
32 ....Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people,
and thine eyes shall look,
and fail with longing for them all the day long;
and there shall be no might in thine hand.
33 The fruit of thy land,
and all thy labours,
shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up;
and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway:
34 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see....
36 ....The Lord shall bring thee,
and thy king which thou shalt set over thee,
unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known;
and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone.
37 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword,
among all nations whither the Lord shall lead thee.....
41 ....Thou shalt beget sons and daughters,
but thou shalt not enjoy them;
for they shall go into captivity.....
43 .....The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high;
and thou shalt come down very low.
44 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him:
he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.
45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee,
and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee,
till thou be destroyed;
because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the Lord thy God,
to keep his commandments
and his statutes which he commanded thee:
46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder,
and upon thy seed for ever.
47 Because thou servedst not the Lord thy God with joyfulness,
and with gladness of heart,
for the abundance of all things;
48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the Lord shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.
49 The Lord shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;
50 A nation of fierce countenance,
which shall not regard the person of the old,
nor shew favour to the young:
51 And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle,
and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed:
which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine,
or flocks of thy sheep,
until he have destroyed thee.
52 And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates,
until thy high and fenced walls come down,
wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land:
and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land,
which the Lord thy God hath given thee.....
62 ....And ye shall be left few in number,
whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude;
because thou wouldest not obey the voice of the Lord thy God.
63 And it shall come to pass,
that as the Lord rejoiced over you to do you good,
and to multiply you;
so the Lord will rejoice over you to destroy you,
and to bring you to nought;
and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it....
64 ...And the Lord shall scatter thee among all people,
from the one end of the earth even unto the other;
and there thou shalt serve other gods,
which neither thou nor thy fathers have known,
even wood and stone.
65 And among these nations shalt thou find no ease,
neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest:
but the Lord shall give thee there a trembling heart,
and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:
66 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee;
and thou shalt fear day and night,
and shalt have none assurance of thy life:
67 In the morning thou shalt say,
Would God it were even!
and at even thou shalt say,
Would God it were morning!
for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear,
and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.
68 And the Lord shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships,
by the way whereof I spake unto thee,
Thou shalt see it no more again:
and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen,
and no man shall buy you.
Clearly, some of these parameters satisfy the African American slave trade. However, they also satisfy the conditions of enslavement that the 10 Northern tribes suffered at the hands of their Assyrian invaders and, later, that the Judeans suffered during their conquest by Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylonia. Not surprisingly, they also satisfy the conditions of conquest experienced by many other groups of people throughout much of human history. Taken on its own, the curse is not simply not the evidence needed for anyone to draw the conclusions that proponents of this misleading agenda are seeking to convince their unwitting audience.
The reality is that today's Israelites come in all shades of the flesh-color spectrum, white, black, in-between and probably even the subtle hues of red and yellow. After 3,000 years of global dispersion and forgotten identity it would be unreasonable to expect that the Israelite race should have retained its genetic purity. Even more important is the fact that Christ himself made it plain to the Jews living in Jerusalem 2,000 years ago that God's grace was meted out, not according to bloodline, but according to the willingness of one's heart to do the right thing.
But I tell you of a truth,
many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias,
when the heaven was shut up three years and six months,
when great famine was throughout all the land;
26 But unto none of them was Elias sent,
save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon,
unto a woman that was a (Sidonian) widow.
27 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet;
and none of them was cleansed,
saving Naaman the Syrian.
What follows is a series of videos in which you will see black Americans who have been convinced of their imminent, divinely ordained, return to global rule speaking in various cities & forums. It would be a serious mistake to underestimate the danger these people pose for they are no longer to be considered a fringe group. While the rest of us were sleeping these people have again been corralled and fed a series of irrational manipulations by the furtive oppressors that wish to dominate us all. The current bondage for the African American community is not one of physical chains but a more insidious psychological exploitation of delusionary ‘wishful thinking’. After all, the nation of Israel was beloved of God and chosen to be ‘above all people of the earth’. What better conceptual palliative to sooth the broken hearts of a long-suffering people?
What is egregiously and consistently omitted from their interpretation of scripture is the understanding that God loved the Hebrew people, not because they suffered, but for the fact that in spite of their own tormented lives they retained the willingness to sacrifice themselves for the greater good of all mankind. The authentic members of the Israelite race are most significantly identifiable by their archetypal tendency to sacrifice themselves to the cause of 'moral contribution' even under the most difficult of circumstances. Unfortunately, all of humanity has had to live under a curse ever since Eve contracted the human species into servitude with the enemy of our God. Suffering is by no means the measure of those beloved of YHWH. Rather it is those whose tender hearts of compassion are capable of surviving the suffering and that continue to demonstrate the love of God in human form that remain the truly beloved among us.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they shall see God.
