Scripture Reading: Genesis 5:1
The Bible is the family history of the first man Adam. It gives the generations of the race that Adam and Eve were parents of: the White race. The first ten chapters tell of where they lived, what they did, how long they lived, the first sin that happened in the race, the first deception that occurred in the race, the first big failure of the race and the judgment against it.
The Bible tells us that the lives of our ancestors lived almost one thousand years (so much for evolution); but by the time of Noah practically the entire race had miscegenated. Noah, his wife, their three sons and their wives were they only pure-blooded White people who survived the first major battle of the world.
The Bible does not teach that Noah needed 120 years to build the Ark; or that there was 2 animals of every kind in the entire world that was placed in the Ark; or that the flood was a world-wide flood; or that the rain that occurred during Noah’s flood was the first rain that had occurred in the earth. The flood did drastically affect every part of the earth, but there was not waters over the mountains all over the earth.
The land split into; the seasons developed; earthquakes and volcanoes erupted; the two poles became ice filled; and it was a very scary time that happened. And when Noah got off the Ark after 1 year and 17 days; the world that then was; was over. The world that then was, ¼ of time on this earth from the first sin of Eve, was over. The Bible covers this time period in 10 chapters. The world that now is, began.
After the flood was over, the Bible tells us about the Tower of Babel and the family that God loved so much that He made a covenant with him and his seed. Shortly after the Noahic nations are dispersed from Babel, God expanded greatly the Scripture to tell of the covenant that He made with Abram. This story begins in Genesis 12 and continues all through the Bible. We learn that God made a covenant with Abram and later changed his name to Abraham (father of many nations).
The Bible tells us of how the covenant was passed on to Isaac and then to Esau. But Esau despised the covenant and sold it to his twin brother Jacob. After which it says that Esau married a couple of Canaanite women; “Which were a grief of mind unto Isaac and to Rebekah” (Genesis 26:35).
Later, it tells of how Jacob stole Esau’s blessing of his father. When this plot was discovered, Isaac trembled and Esau wept bitterly. But Esau persuaded his father to give him one blessing; which Isaac did. Isaac blessed Esau that one day he would have “the dominion, and thou (Esau) shall break his (Jacob’s) yoke from off thy (Esau’s) neck.”
It is here that we read that “Esau hated Jacob” (Genesis 27:41) and planned his murder after his father’s death. But Rebekah persuades her husband, Isaac, to send Jacob off to find a non-Canaanite wife. So Isaac sends Jacob to her family’s house to find a wife. Esau was 40 years old when he married a couple of Canaanite wives (Genesis 26:34); Jacob was 77 years old when he set off on his journey to find himself a pure-blooded wife. When Esau learns that his father told Jacob not to marry a Canaanite, who Esau had already married; Esau then marries an Ishmaelite (Genesis 28:8, 9). So there is a jewish influence among some of the Arab people, too.
Jacob is gone for about 20 years. He returns with a whole bunch of children. His last son is born in Palestine and his wife dies at his birth. Esau is pacified from killing Jacob, but the resentment carries forth until today.
Joseph, the son Jacob loves the most, is sold to tradesmen who sell him to Egyptians. He is lied about and put in jail. After 13 years his sentence is wiped clean and he is made 2nd in command in all of Egypt because he was the only one who could tell Pharaoh what his dream was about. It made Egypt the most powerful nation in the world.
Joseph’s brothers go to Egypt to buy some food as there is an extreme drought in the region. Eventually, the immediate family of Joseph, all comes to Egypt to live. Joseph forgives his brothers for the evil they attempted to do, for God met it for good. The book ends with the death of Joseph: “So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt” (Genesis 50:26). The book of Genesis is about the ancestry of Israel.
This book tells of Israel in Egypt after Joseph dies. It moves very quickly from the 70 people of the family of Jacob who came to Egypt to 135 years later with the birth of Moses. Esau and his offspring are not mentioned, for neither he nor they made the journey to Egypt.
After being in Egypt for 215 years, it was time for Israel to leave Egypt: thus the title “Exodus.” Moses is called to be their deliverer and he is sent to his people and to Pharaoh. The people are not believers that Pharaoh will let them go, but Moses is told to continue on. It is not until Passover is instituted, that they are set free from their bondage and allowed to go home.
By Egypt decides to go after the Israelites that they had previously let go. They go after them in chariots and horsemen and his army and overtook them by the Sea. But the pillar of the cloud came between the two hostile groups and was a cloud and darkness to the Egyptians, but it gave light by night to the Israelites. Moses stretched forth his hand with the rod and the sea was caused to go back by a strong east wind all night and the children of Israel walk between the waters on dry ground.
After Israel had crossed the sea, the Egyptians pursued them traveling the same path that their former slaves had traveled. But this time God set the trap. After the Egyptians had entered the dry ground of the Gulf of Aquaba, it became wet and the wheels fell off the chariots and the waters returned and spilled over the Egyptians drowning the entire army. Thus, Egypt’s reign as being the number one nation in the world came to a sudden end.
Israel then went to Mt. Sinai where they paused for a while. God made his proposal for marriage with Israel and Israel accepted. The vows were exchanged and Israel was given a conditional covenant. As long as they obeyed His laws, they would be blessed; as long as they disobeyed His laws, they would be cursed.
Then follows many of the laws of the conditional covenant as well as the building of the tabernacle. The book ends with the glory appearing and remaining on the tabernacle. This book is about the history of Israel.
Leviticus refers to the priestly tribe of Levi. This book begins with Israel’s King calling Moses from out of the tabernacle. And ends with the statement that “These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in Mount Sinai.” This book is devoted to the worship of the redeemed people of God.
It tells of the priestly offerings and the consecration of Aaron and his sons, the strange fire of Nadab and Abilu, the holy diet; foods that they were allowed and not allowed to eat; the feast days, the scapegoat and the laws regulating the personal relationships of the redeemed people. Obviously this book is for no one but Israel.
Numbers derives its name from the record of the two numberings of the Israelitish host. More accurate is the Hebrew title, “In the Wilderness.”
The first part of the book concludes the divine record of the experiences at Sinai and thus points back to Exodus. The major part of Numbers recounts the years of wandering, from the time that Israel departed from Sinai until, as a new generation, they reached the Jordan River. The book covers about 40 years of Israel’s history. This book is for no one but Israel.
Deuteronomy begins with a survey of the history of Israel, then enlarges upon some of the basic laws of the preceding books, and concludes with a series of prophecies carrying the history of Israel down to their final return to Palestine. The title means “The Second Law”.
This book gives the final discourses of Moses given on the plains of Moab, opposite Palestine, shortly before his death. The book ends with the final words and acts of Moses, and his death. This book is the continued history of Israel.
The book begins with Joshua succeeding Moses as Israel’s shepherd/leader. It then tells of the military campaigns waged by Joshua in conquering the Promised Land and concludes with detailed instructions for the division of the land among the tribes. The book covers about 30 years of the history of Israel. This book is only about Israel.
Judges takes its title from all the judges that were appointed by God to deliver Israel in times of declension and disunion after Joshua’s death. No one was capable of such leadership as Joshua had exercised. The four-fold cycle so common in Israel’s history can be given by words that all begin with the letter “R”:
This four-word process occurred repeatedly. Joshua is a book of victory; Judges is a book of defeat. The judges were chosen from different tribes. Not all of them exercised jurisdiction over the entire territory of Israel; the influence of some of the judges was local. This book is about Israel’s history; with God as their king.
The book of Ruth takes place during the first half of the book of Judges. The story of Ruth is about the kinsman-redemption worked out by Boaz. Ruth was an Israelite who lived in the land that the Moabites use to occupy. She was a close relative of Boaz, who was of Judah (Ruth 3:9). This book is about Israel only.
Samuel was the last judge in Israel’s history. This book tells not only about the life of Samuel, it tells more about the life of King David. It also tells about the lives of King Saul and David’s anointing and early years. The book ends with Israel defeated and King Saul and Jonathan slain. This book tells about Israel’s monarchy. It had rejected the theocracy that it had held for many years. This book deals with Israel’s history with its new monarchs.
This book begins with an account of the strife that preceded the establishment of the Davidic throne at Jerusalem. The book records David’s military victories, his great sin, and his flight at the time of Absalom’s revolt, his return to Jerusalem, and his sin in numbering the people. This book covers a period of 40 years. This book deals with the history of Israel.
This book records the principal events and characteristics of the reigns of the kings of Judah and Israel from the death of David to the end of the kingdom of Judah and the fall of Jerusalem. The three major narratives of this book cover the reign of Solomon, including an extended account of the building of the Temple; the ministry of Elijah; and the reign of Ahab.
Judah’s twenty kings were all descendants of David and reigned for 345 years. Israel had nineteen kings of nine dynasties, reigning 210 years, eight of whom were either slain or committed suicide. The House of Judah had frequent revivals; the House of Israel; none. This book deals with both kingdoms of Israel’s history.
This book contains the record of two great national tragedies:
- The fall of the northern kingdom, Israel, in 723 B.C.
- The fall of Judah, with the destruction of Jerusalem, in 586 B.C.
- Plus an account of the mighty ministry of Elisha
During the period recorded in this book, Israel received warnings and exhortations from Amos and Hosea, and a number of prophets arose in Judah, including Isaiah and Jeremiah. The Books of Kings conclude with the people of Judah in captivity in Babylon. This book deals with Israel’s history.
The book of Chronicles embodies many of the events recorded in 1 and 2 Kings; being devoted to the history of Judah from the time of Saul’s death to the Babylonian captivity. 1 Chronicles begins with the most extensive collection of genealogical records in the Bible, the purpose of which is to draw all lines of redemptive history to their focal point in David. Much emphasis is placed upon the dedication and services of the Temple and the ministry of the Levites. The northern kingdom of Israel is not in view in the Books of the Chronicles, except as it relates to Judah. This book relates mainly to the history of Judah.
2 Chronicles records several reformations, including the most extended account of any revival in Bible history; that under Hezekiah. The book tells us about the reign of Solomon, with a detailed account of the building and dedication of the Temple; the history of Judah from the reign of Rehoboam to the destruction of Jerusalem and the captivity.
Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther
Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther conclude the historical books of the Bible. Both Ezra and Nehemiah are devoted to events occurring in the land of Israel at the time of the return from captivity and subsequent years, covering a period of approximately one century; beginning in 538 B. C.
The emphasis in Ezra is on the rebuilding of the Temple; in Nehemiah, on the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem. Both books contain extensive genealogical records, principally for the purpose of establishing the claims to the priesthood on the part of the descendants of Aaron. More than 50 years elapse between the 6th and 7th chapter of Ezra. Both books end with prayers of confession and a subsequent separation of the people from the sinful practices into which they had fallen.
I believe that Esther is a forgery. It tells of the jewish control of what happened during this time. It is read by the jews each Purim celebration; for the justification of Purim is in this book. This ends the historical portion of the Holy Scriptures.
Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon
Job is referred to as being an historical person in the lineage of Adam who lived in the patriarchal period is inferred from his great age. The book of Job deals with the patience that was shown and the victory that he won.
The Psalms were all written by Israelites:
- 75 psalms were written by King David
- 12 psalms were written by Asaph
- 2 psalms were written by Solomon
- 2 psalms was written by Moses
- 1 psalm was written by Ethan
- 10 psalms were written by the sons of Korah
- 1 psalm was written by Heman
- 47 psalms were written anonymously
The Psalms were divided to correspond with the first 5 books of the Bible:
- Genesis: Psalms 1-41
- Exodus: Psalms 42-72
- Leviticus: Psalms 73-89
- Numbers: Psalms 90-106
- Deuteronomy: Psalms 107-150
Proverbs was written mainly by King Solomon as well as Ecclesiastes, which means “the preacher.” The both give practical and moral spiritual truth in proverbial form for the people of God.
The rest of the Old Testament is written by Israelite prophets. Ten of them wrote during the pre-exilic period of time; 3 wrote during the exilic period of time; and 3 wrote during the post-exilic time. The prophets prophesied about Israel, Judah and their enemies.
Matthew, Mark, Luke John, Acts, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, Revelation
All four of these men were Israelites. Matthew begins the New Testament scriptures with a genealogy that begins with Abraham and goes all the way to Joseph, the husband of Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ. The line goes through David; which shows that Jesus Christ qualifies as being King of Israel. For His legal father, Joseph provided Him with the legal right to the Crown. His legal mother provided Jesus with the legal inheritance to the Throne.
Mark presents Jesus Christ as being the Servant of God. He uses the word “straightway” many more times than in any other author of any other book in the Bible.
Luke emphases Jesus Christ as being the Son of Man. It provides a genealogy tree for His mother, Mary. Mary was the birth mother of Jesus, but without a racial gene input. Just like Joseph was not the genetic father of Jesus. Luke was also the author of the sequential book of Acts which gives the early history of the Israelite churches.
John tells of Jesus Christ as being the Son of God. Along with his brother, James, and with Peter, he belonged to the inner circle of disciples, a group that was near Christ on such occasions as the transfiguration and the agony in Gethsemane. It was to John that our LORD on the cross commended His mother. John appears with Peter in the first part of book of Acts and is referred to by Paul as one of the three “pillars” of the Church. He also wrote 1, 2 and 3 John and the book of Revelation.
The Remainder of the New Testament
The Apostle Paul, a Benjaminite, wrote the most number of books that are in the Bible. He wrote the epistle to the Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus, and Philemon. The book of Hebrew’s authorship is unknown but many believe that it was written either by God or by the Apostle Paul. James wrote the book of James. The Apostle Peter wrote 1 and 2 Peter. And Jude wrote the epistle of Jude.
The Meaning of Who Wrote the Bible
Every book in the Bible was written by an Israelite for Israelites, except for the book of Esther. What does that mean? Ask a Judeo-Christian? Ask a universalist?
What do the ministers who are not of the covenant seed think when God identifies Himself over and over as being the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; their fathers. What do the members, of a multi-cultural flock, think when they read that God identifies Himself approximately forty times that He is the God of “Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; your fathers.” Isn’t that statement racial?
Could the Arabs say that they believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; their fathers? No. For their fathers are Abraham and Ishmael.
Could the jews say that they believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; their fathers? No. For the Ashkenazi jew’s father is not Abraham and Shem; but Japheth. And the Sephardi jew’s fathers are Abraham, Isaac and Esau.
And there are a multitude of people who are not descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; what do they do when they are told that that is how God identifies Himself? What does it mean when He says that He is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? There are the Black, Brown and Asiatic races who do not have these three people in their genealogical tree. So, He is not their God!
They were not part of the unconditional covenant that the God made with all the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob! Maybe that is why the new megachurches do not mention the covenant that God made with our fathers at all. To them, it didn’t happen. For example, go to the Cornerstone Community Church’s web site and look at what they believe. Nothing about the unconditional covenant and who it was made to and for. Not a word.
When one reads the Old Testament he sees that God was the king of the nation of Israel; the people who He had made an unconditional covenant with. Where did these people come from?
The Book of Genesis tells us that Adam and Eve were not born of a mother. They both arrived on the earth as a mature adult. They both did not experience birth, infancy, being a child, and living as a young adult. How long did they live? They lived almost a thousand years. These last five sentences shreds evolution to death.
Before one reads the first ten chapters of the Bible, he realizes that Noah’s flood left on the earth only 8 people who were pure-blooded White men and women; descendants of Adam and Eve. Didn’t God love everyone who lived on the earth? He loved them so much that He drown many of them in a massive flood? Why did God drown the people in Noah’s flood if He loved them?
A couple of hundred years after the flood waters all descended and God made His unconditional covenant with Abraham and his son Isaac and his son Jacob; what nation did He become the king and rule over. Wasn’t it Israel! Yes, God sat on the throne in the inner sanctuary of the Temple. God was their King for many, many centuries; more than 1,000 years! Why didn’t God reign over any other nations as their king? Especially when His covenant people rejected his kingship? Because they were not His covenant people!
What do the universalists say in regards to God’s commandments about one of the enemy nation who were not His covenant people (Deuteronomy 7:1-5). He instructed His covenant people to:
- Make no covenant with the Canaanite
- Show the Canaanite no mercy
- Make no marriages with them
- Do no give your daughters to them or take their daughters for your sons
- You shall destroy their altars, break down their images, burn them, and cut down their groves
- You shall utterly smite the Canaanites and completely destroy them
Does God not love the Canaanites? Apparently he does, if one believes what Ken Ham wrote in his book; One Race, One Blood; page 130.
“Rahab was a Canaanite. These Canaanites had an ungodly culture. In the genealogy in Matthew 1, however, Rahab is listed as being in the line leading to the birth of the Christ, an Israelite! Thus Rahab, a descendant of Ham, must have married an Israelite (descended from Shem). Since this was clearly a union approved by God, it underlines the fact that the particular biological people group she came from was irrelevant—what mattered was that at a certain point in her life, she changed her spiritual race when she trusted in the true God of the Israelites.”
Ken Ham says that Rahab was a Canaanite; we say the opposite. She couldn’t be. For if she were and was in the line of His adopted father; Jesus could never be King of His people. Here are some of the reasons that we say why Rahab had to be an Israelite:
- What part of the Bible would Rahab, if truly a Canaanite, believe? The covenant would not apply to her; she wouldn’t necessarily be interested in Israel’s history, her prophesies, her wisdom on how to live. The Bible would tell her that she, and the other Canaanite people, are forever cursed by God!
- Were God’s instructions to Israel that they could marry any Canaanite who repented and believed what God had taught the Israelites? Or was His command to simply kill all the Canaanites? They were to send no missionaries to this evil seed! For no Canaanite was ever or could ever be saved.
God had instructed the Israelites that they were a special, chosen people:
“For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth” (Deuteronomy 7:6). This would prove that Rahab had to be an Israelite.
Ken Ham states that Rahab changed her spiritual race; where in the Bible does it say this. I thought that Ken Ham said that there was only one race in the Bible: the human race; all others are people groups.
He confuses the issue when he states that “…interracial marriage that God says we should not enter into happen when a child of the Last Adam (one who is a new creation in Christ—a Christian) marries one who is an unconverted child of the First Adam (one who is dead in trespasses and sin—a non-Christian)”; One Race, One Blood, page 131. That is how he gets the notion that two White people who are not Christian are not approved for marriage by God; but a Black man and a White women who are Christian are! So by this erroneous definition of interracial marriage, there was none before the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, according to Ken Hamm!
So interracial marriage is when one person who is a Christian marries another person who is not a Christian? So a Black marrying an Asian is not interracial marriage? What if the one person who is not a Christian, later repents and becomes a Christian? Was the interracial marriage now become not an interracial marriage? Interracial marriage is not based on belief.
But Ken never talks about the covenant; for no Black, Brown or Asiatic person was the seed of Jacob. So how can the non-Israelite be part of the kingdom of God? That is why at eleven o’clock on Sunday morning was the most segregated time in America’s history. If Rahab were a Canaanite, then it would disqualify Jesus Christ from legally obtaining the Throne or Crown of Israel.
- Rahab is mentioned in the chapter that deals with the heroes of the faith: Hebrews, chapter 11. Every single person mentioned was of the chosen line of God’s people, from Abel to Abraham to Moses to King David. Would it make any sense and would it be worth mentioning if one person was from the line of the bitter enemy of Israel, the Canaanite, who was given this great honor? Why would a descendant of Canaan, who was cursed forever, not only be a recipient of being a hero of faith but would also be a part of Christ’s bloodline? Blasphemy!
- Ken Ham says that Rahab’s marriage to an Israelite was approved by God. Where in the Bible does God ever approve of a marriage between two races that he forbid from marrying? God commanded Israel to kill every single Canaanite in the land: man, women or child. No exceptions given. Where does He give the approval of any Israelite marrying a Canaanite; for if He did Esau would have an argument for his losing the blessing of the covenant! Remember how Esau’s marriage with the two Canaanites grieved his father and mother and violated God’s command.
- God sent angels to save Lot and his immediate family from the immoral city of Sodom; didn’t He do the same thing with Rahab? The purpose of the messengers or spies was to spare Rahab and her house when Jericho would be destroyed.
- How did Rahab know that God had given not only Jericho but all the land of the Canaanites to Israel? One good answer is that Rahab knew this because she was descended from Israel and had been taught her heritage and God’s promises and Covenants as she had grown up.
- Rahab’s father and mother and siblings all had to have known about the plan to betray the town of Jericho to the Israelites. They had to go to her apartment and stay during the attack; for that would be that only part of the wall that would be left standing. All the other parts of the wall would come down. They had to be under the code of silence or they would have been destroyed with the city.
- Has Ken Ham ever considered that if what he says about Rahab; that she was a Canaanite, why would she have been given a place to dwell within Israel? This would have been a violation of the very command of God at the very beginning of the time in which He commanded them to utterly destroy them all.
- God hated the Canaanites then; He still hates them now. A tare does not ever become a wheat. The Canaanite descendants of Esau eventually got the land of Canaan back; but soon God will drive them from the land permanently.
- Ken Ham fails to mention in his book that it wasn’t just Rahab that was saved from the destruction of Jericho. It was her mother, father, and all her siblings. Did they all have a change in their spiritual race too? He only mentioned that Rahab experienced this change.
They all were Israelites. It is mathematically a number that is close to infinity that the only Canaanites that were ever saved were all from the same family; saved at the same time. What would have happened to them if Israel did not attack Jericho at this time? God has a record of saving His people out of their enemy’s territory: Lot out of Sodom, Noah out of the evil world, the early church out of Jerusalem; why not Rahab and her family out of Jericho?
Rahab let the messengers go down the wall on a scarlet cord. This could imply that she was from the tribe of Judah, especially of Zarah; who when he was being born put his hand out the womb and a scarlet thread was placed on it. But he quickly put it back into the womb and his brother was born first.
Answers in Genesis takes on the enemy of Christianity, the belief of Evolution; but then slips in interracial dating and marriage as a stable doctrine of the church. It is like jumping out of the kettle into the fire.
But Answers in Genesis is not a church; it is an organization that influences many churches. What is the scripture that they give for this kind of organization? It is similar to Billy Graham Ministries, or the Roman Catholic Promise Keepers, or TBN television network, or Alpha, or Full Gospel Businessmen’s Fellowship International, or the Jewish Voice Today Ministries and many other groups that act like churches even though they are not.
These organizations all teach the humanistic, jewish and unbiblical “Brotherhood of Man” doctrine. To do this, the impression must be falsely created that all races evolved from one single origin, and that all the differences between Genesis One and Two are not there. Answers in Genesis is a 501 C (3) organization that is supported by different churches all over the world. They are a corporation of the state and not a church of Jesus Christ. Thus, they do not suffer persecution for what they present, from World government sources. Rather, these forces back them. What does this tell us?
An Unanswered Question
The Old Testament leaves a very important question left unanswered: what happened to the majority of Israelites who were in a state of divorcement. How did they get back into the unconditional covenant that God had made with them or did they? Why did Jesus Christ send his disciples out to the lost sheep of the House of Israel who for over 800 years had been severed from the kingdom of God?
And a very important related question is this: Who plotted the murder of Jesus Christ? But first, answer this question: Who was the father and mother of Jesus Christ? Who was the father and mother of Adam? And related to all this is this question: who attempted to kill Jesus?
Attempt to kill Jesus: Matthew 2:16-18. Herod “…slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.” Herod was attempting to kill baby Jesus, who had just left and went to Egypt to flee from this murderous event. Who was King Herod: a descendant of Esau.
Attempt to kill Jesus: Mark 3:6. “And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him [Jesus].” Who were the Pharisees: descendants of Esau.
Attempt to kill Jesus: Matthew 26:3-5. “Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas, and consulted that they might take Jesus by subtitlity, and kill him. But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people.” Who were the chief priests, the scribes and the elders of the people: descendants of Esau.
Jesus foretold who should attempt to kill him: Mark 10:32-34. “And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen unto him, Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles: And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.” Who did Jesus foretell would kill him? Who were the chief priests and the scribes: descendants of Esau.
Attempt to kill Jesus: Mark 14:1, 2. “After two days was the feast of the Passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft and put him to death. But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar of the people.” Who were the chief priests and the scribes: descendants of Esau.
Attempt to kill Jesus: Luke 11:53, 54. “And as he [Jesus] said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things: Laying wait for him [Jesus], and seeking to catch something out of his [Jesus] mouth, that they might accuse him [Jesus].” This came right after Jesus pronounced woes upon the Pharisees. Who were the Pharisees and scribes: descendants of Esau.
Attempt to kill Jesus: Luke 20:14, 19 “But when the tenants saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours…And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay hands on him, but they feared the people; for they perceived that he had spoken this parable against them.” Who were the chief priests and the scribes: descendants of Esau.
Attempt to kill Jesus: Luke 22:1, 2. “Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover. And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him [Jesus]; for they feared the people.” Who were the chief priests and scribes: descendants of Esau.
Attempt to kill Jesus: John 5:16. “And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him [Jesus], because he had done these things on the Sabbath day.” Who were the Jews: descendants of Esau.
The betrayal and arrest of Jesus: Matthew 26:47-50. “And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people. Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whosoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast. And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him. And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.” Who were the chief priests and elders of the people: descendants of Esau.
Attempt to kill Jesus: John 7:30-32. “Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come. And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done? The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him [Jesus].” Who were the Pharisees and the chief priests: descendants of Esau.
Attempt to kill Jesus: John 7:40-45. “Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet. Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee? Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was? So there was a division among the people because of him. And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him. Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?” Who were the Pharisees and chief priests: descendants of Esau.
Attempt to kill Jesus: John 7:59. “Then took they [jews] up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.” Who were the jews: descendants of Esau.
Attempt to kill Jesus: John 10:31-33. “Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.” Who were the jews: descendants of Esau.
Attempt to kill Jesus: John 10 39-42. “Therefore they [Jews] sought again to take him [Jesus]: but he escaped out of their hand. And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode.” Who were the jews: descendants of Esau.
Attempt to kill Jesus: John 11:47, 48. “Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? For this man [Jesus] doeth many miracles. If we let him [Jesus] thus alone, all men will believe on him [Jesus]: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.” Who were the chief priests and the Pharisees: descendants of Esau.
Attempt to kill Jesus: John 11:53, 54. “Then from that day forth they [Jews] took counsel together for to put him to death. Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.” Who were the jews: descendants of Esau.
Attempt to kill Lazarus: John 12:9-10. “Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus’ sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead. But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death;….” They not only wanted to kill Jesus but also Lazarus, the one who was raised from the dead. Who were the chief priests: descendants of Esau.
Attempt to destroy Jesus’ resurrection: Matthew 28:11-15. “Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done. And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers, Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept. And if this come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.” Who were the chief priests and elders: descendants of Esau.
And on and on it goes. These verses and many more similar ones are the verses that led me to believe the identity message. Who were the murderers of Jesus Christ, John the Baptist, the Apostles, the members of the early church: it was always the descendants of Esau. No wonder that Jesus Christ overturned the tables in the Temple of the descendants of Esau. No wonder that Jesus Christ pronounced the woes on the Pharisees, the descendants of Esau.
Who the Jews Say They are Descended From
And who do the Jews say they are descended from?
- “Edom is modern Jewry” (The Jewish Encyclopedia, 1925 edition, Volume 5, page 41).
- "Phariseeism became Talmudism, Talmudism became Medieval Rabbinism, and Medieval Rabbinism became modern Rabbinism. Both throughout these changes in name…the spirit of the ancient Pharisees survives, unaltered” (Pharisees, the Sociological Background of Their Faith, Rabbi Louis Finkelstein, page 21).
- “The Jewish religion as it is today traces its descent, without break, through all the centuries, from the Pharisees….” Universal Jewish Encyclopedia under Pharisees).
This is what the Jews say: Edom is modern Jewry; Phariseeism is modern Jewry; Edom = Pharisees. The modern day Jews are the same as the ancient Pharisees. And doesn’t the Scriptures teach that we are to beware “…of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?” (Matthew 15:6-12).
And what about the divorced House of Israel? God made an unconditional covenant with their fathers and He kept that covenant. His death and resurrection was the only solution to their dilemma. Notice how the jews hated Him for what He did; as well as His resurrection. He demonstrated His love for His wayward people that He died and was resurrected for them. The Jews hate this last sentence, because they are not a part of it. They hate that He kept the unconditional covenant with His covenant people: so they deny everything that He stood for and taught. They do everything that they can to deceive the true “seed of the woman” from believing that the “good shepherd” would come and save them. They are liars.
Most commentators and authors, such as Ken Hamm, in ignorance and/or blindness, refer to Rahab as being born into the family of the cursed Canaanites. They even refer to her as being in the bloodline of Jesus Christ; which is blasphemy! For no Canaanite is in the bloodline of Jesus; for He would then be a bastard and then could not be the savior of anyone.
The jews claim that Jesus was a jew. But why did they kill him then? They both would be mongrels. If Jesus Christ was a mongrel He could not have saved any Israelite or Judahite, who were pure blooded. He had no earthly mother or father, so He was as pure blooded as anyone could be.
They don’t mention that it was not just Rahab that was saved, but her whole immediate family (Joshua 2:13). God cursed the Canaanites and forbid any Israelite from intermarrying with them. That is exactly what Esau did (Genesis 26:34, 35).
God hated the Canaanites then, and He still hates them now! God hates His people marrying the people who plotted and eventually murdered His son! All offspring from such a bastardous relationship loses God’s spirit. Their bastardized offspring can never be in the kingdom of God.
They even paid the soldiers a large amount of money (bribe) to lie about His resurrection, saying that His disciples came to the grave and stole His dead body. What a despicable people. No wonder Jesus Christ pronounced all those woes against this evil people: the Canaanites/Esauites/Kenites/jews.
Blessed be the LORD God of Israel.
