Deception on Identifying Israel

Gen. 3:13 “And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.”
1Ti. 2:14 “And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.”
Little do people realize the pervasiveness of the deception of the age in which we live. It at the least matches the deception of Eve in the garden but goes way beyond just that one person. People know about deception in government but few understand that it is in our education system and even in religion. In fact, I believe it was in religion before it was ever in any other venue. The church is supposed to be the pillar and ground of the truth but most of today’s seminaries, theologians, and pastors actually teach error and outright falsehoods. Most of them do not know they do it, they honestly think what they believe is the truth. So did Eve, and that is the art of deception. You honestly don’t know you are tricked into believing something false. As one politician put it, “Tell a lie often enough and everyone will accept it as if it were the truth.”
The biggest deception of all is that Christians do not know that the “lost” tribes of Israel are found. They also do not know who the “elect” are. Some say it is those who are “saved.” Others say it is those God has predestined to be saved and therefore they will repent and become a Christian. In either case both of these views say the Elect compose people from every nation, tribe or race on the face of the Earth. Both of these ideas are wrong according to the Bible. It says plainly in Isa. 45:4, “For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.” There can be no doubt that the Bible declares who the chosen race is. It is Jacob/Israel. It can also be proven from genealogical records and history, both secular and Biblical, that the descendants of the lost tribes of Jacob/Israel are the Celto-Saxon peoples (Caucasian race).
Here is how this deception works. Christians read their Bibles and when coming to the word “Israel” they think it refers to the Jews in a country in the Middle East. The deception is that they are not thinking Biblically. How does the Bible define and use the word? Israel is not a geographic location. It is the new name given to Jacob (Gen. 32:28) and refers to the nation of his offspring. Even the Hebrew and Greek words for “nation” in the Bible primarily means a race, tribe, or family, not a political division. Satan knows he cannot get Christians to accept blatant contradiction to God’s Word, so he gets them used to using re-defined words to change the meaning of scripture. This is the same as in the case with Eve, “Hath God [really] said not to eat of every tree… ye shall not die… look at this, it’s good!” (My paraphrase; see Gen. 3)
Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. Most people today have never heard of such a doctrine that the Caucasians are Israel and they are the Elect of the Bible, but that doesn’t mean it’s not true. When most people hear this message they immediately think “racism” or “white supremacist” or some other nonsense promoted by the government. Then they will immediately go into denial, “oh, that can’t be true” and repeat the lie, “We are spiritual Israel.”
Most theologians today proclaim that God has no New Covenant plan for physical Israel and that he now works with a “spiritual Israel.” But what does the Bible say?
Heb. 8:8, “…Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.”
While some will attempt to spiritualize this passage to fit their preconceived ideas, the Israelites cannot be spiritualized in this verse for three reasons.
First, the context will not allow it. The very next verse dictates as to whether the Israelites spoken of in verse eight are to be deemed as being either physical or spiritual:
V. 9, “Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.”
The people described in this passage, with whom the New Covenant was and is being made, are clearly the physical descendants of the fathers who were led out of Egypt.
The second reason Israel cannot be spiritualized is illustrated by the Old Testament passage which is being quoted here by the writer of Hebrews. Jeremiah continues:
Jer 31:35, “Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night…. 36, If those ordinances depart from before me… then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.”
Since the sun, moon and stars have not disappeared, then God is still working with the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. If not, then God has lied.
The third reason the Israelites in Hebrews 8:8 cannot be spiritualized is because of the second witness of the Apostle Paul:
Rom 9:3, “For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh: 4, Who are Israelites; to whom are… the covenants….”
There are many other passages in the New Testament that confirm that God is still working with the physical descendants of Israel (not the country in the Middle East).
What They Have Said
“And are not they [today’s Jews] the inventors of the Chosen People myth?” Dr. Oscar Levy, preface, The World Significance of the Russian Revolution, George Pitt Rivers (Oxford, 1920) p. vi
“Strictly speaking, it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an ‘Israelite’ or a ‘Hebrew’ The first Hebrews may not have been Jews at all….” The Jewish Almanac, Compiled and Edited by Richard Siegel and Carl Rheims (Bantam Books, 1980) p.3
“Here’s a paradox… an anthropological fact, many Christians may have much more Hebrew-Israelite blood in their veins than most of their Jewish neighbors.” Alfred M. Lilienthal, Jr., What Price Israel (Chicago, 1953) p.223
So if the Jews know about this, why don’t we? In most cases they control the educational institutions, entertainment, media, and government, that’s why. They are Esau pretending to be Jacob! The truth is that over 90% of the people known as Jews are not descendants of Abraham. History reveals they are actually descendants of the fierce Turkish Mongolian Khazars tribes which roamed the steppes of southern Russia and who adopted the religion of Judaism between the 7th and 8th Centuries. Today the Khazars are known as “Jews” not because of race, but because of religion. Reference, The Jews That Aren’t by Leo Heiman, printed in The San Diego Union, Aug. 28, 1966, reporting the findings of Nathan M. Pollock, an elderly Russian Jew.
Another authoritative source taken from a well known Jewish author, Mr. Arthur Koestler, who wrote a book called The Thirteenth Tribe, published in 1976 by Random House and widely circulated throughout America and the western world. This 225 page book is a documented source to prove that most of the people calling themselves Jews today are neither Israelites nor Semites, but are instead Khazars, Mongols, and Huns. This book was reviewed by major newspapers and magazines throughout 1976.
Robert Kirsch of the Los Angeles Times stated in his review that Arthur Koestler publicizes with his customary skills a daring hypothesis: that the Khazar Jews migrated to Poland and became the forebears of eastern European Jewry. Then Kirsch quoted Prof. A. N. Poliak of Tel Aviv University, who stated that “the large majority of world Jewry” is descended from the Jews of Khazaria. Then he again quoted Koestler in The Thirteen Tribe; “If so, this would mean that their ancestors came not from the Jordon but from the Volga; not from Canaan but from the Caucasus, once believed to be the cradle of the Aryan race; and that genetically they are more related to the Hun, Uigur, and Magyar tribes than to the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob….”
At the turn of the last century in the Jewish community there was discussed the haunting question, were the Jews really the Jews? One of the Jewish scholars of that time was Maurice Fishberg, a licensed medical doctor and medical examiner in New York City, who was certainly qualified to comment on the data of Jewish Cranial findings of the day. “As is at present accepted by nearly all anthropologists, the shape of the head is the most stable characteristic of a given race” (Jewish Encyclopedia IV, 1902, p 335). Dr. Fishberg presented a table of nearly 3,000 Jewish heads, from various countries, measured during the last twenty years. He commented on the data, “On an examination of the figures in this table a remarkable uniformity of the cephalic index of the modern Jews will be noticed… nearly 90% are between 81.5 and 83…. Another remarkable fact is the striking absence of the dolichocephalic type, which is characteristic of all the other modern Semitic races” (Jew. Enc. IV, 1902, p 334).
Fishberg addresses the most confronting problem with his findings, specifically how they relate to the racial claims of the modern Jews. He writes: “The most important problem suggested by a study of craniometrical results concerning Jews is the relation of the type head of the modern Jews to that of the ancient Hebrews and to the modern Semitic skulls. The pure Semitic skull is dolichocephalic, as may be seen from a study of the heads of modern Arabs, Abyssinians, Syrians…. The only way the type of head may change is by intermixture with other races. If the ancient Hebrews were of the same stock as the modern non-Jewish Semites, and if the modern Jews are their descendants, then a pure dolichocephalic type of head would be expected among the Jews. As has been seen, all results of Craniometry prove that the Jews are brachycephalic, and that the dolichocephalism form is only found among them in less than two percent of the cases” (Jew. Enc. IV, 1902, p 335).
Fishberg presents a summary of the problem. If the modern Jews are descendants of the ancient Hebrews of the Bible and are supposed to be Semites, then dolichocephalic skulls would be expected. However, the opposite is true. The Jews are predominantly round-headed. The factual data he presents is some of the most incriminating evidence to have ever been collected against the racial claims of the modern Jews. Dr. Fishberg also wrote an article on the Nose and the ‘nasal index’ in distinguishing the various races of humankind. (Jew. Enc. IX, 1905, p 339) He writes: “Some authors show that this form of nose is not characteristically Semitic, because the modern non-Jewish Semites, particularly such as are supposed to have maintained themselves in a pure state, as the Bedouin Arabs, so not possess this characteristic nose at all. Their noses are as a rule short, straight, and often ‘snub’ or concave. Luschan holds that the hook-nose is by no means characteristic of the Semites, and contends that the number of arched noses that are found among the Jews is due to ancient intermixture with the Hittites in Asia Minor. He shows that other races also, as the Armenian, for instance, who have a good portion of Hittite blood in their veins, have hook-noses” (Jew. Enc. IX, 1905, p 338).
According to all the racial indicators recognized by leading anthropologists at the turn of the century, the modern Jews have more in common with the ancient Hittites, than with the ancient Israelites. Joseph Jacobs wrote: “Some anthropologists are inclined to associate the racial origins of the Jews, not with the Semites, whose language they adopted, but with the Armenians and Hittites of Mesopotamia, whose broad skulls and cuffed noses they appear to have inherited” (Jew. Enc. X, 1903, p 264).
There are other references for study that will provide documentation as to the origin and activities of the people called Jews in contemporary history; such as The International Jew by Henry Ford Sr. in 1923, Iron Curtain Over America by Col. John Beaty in 1951, and Israel’s 5 Trillion Dollar Secret by Col. Curtis B. Dall in 1977.
It is important to remember that down through history there have been those who claimed to be descended from Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel, yet were not; and the New Testament addresses a few examples of this.
Rev 2:9, “I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews [better rendered Judahites], and are not, but do lie, but are the synagogue of Satan.”
In John chapter 8 Jews claimed to be from Abraham, yet stated they had never been in bondage to any man (v.33). True Judahites (which are of Israel) had been Egyptian slaves. Later (v. 37) Jesus Christ acknowledged that these Jews were Abraham’s seed, and still later (in v. 38-39) He declared that if they were truly the seed of Abraham, they would be doing Abraham’s works. At first glance this seems to be a contradiction.
The answer to this complex problem lies in the fact that the Jews of John 8 and elsewhere in the New Testament could claim a genetic link to Abraham by a number of mixed marriages; yet not one of these would be of the true and legitimate seed of Abraham through Isaac, and Jacob-Israel. In Genesis 46:10, it is confirmed that Simeon (one of the sons of Jacob) married a Canaanite woman and from this union was born Shaul. The Shaulites could claim descent from Abraham, but would not be true seed of Abraham. In Genesis 38:1-5, Judah married a Canaanite woman and three sons were born; Er, Onan, and Shelah. The descendants of Shelah could also make the claim of being descended from Abraham. We see in Genesis 26:34 that Esau had married into the Canaanite lineage, which was most painful to his mother, Rebekah (Gen. 27:46). Esau sold his birthright, married outside the Covenant Family, and from that day forward his seed was in perpetual enmity with the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel. Any or all of these descendants could have been there in Jerusalem in the days of Jesus Christ claiming descent from Abraham, and yet none of them the legitimate seed. In this context it is very easy to understand John chapter 8.
God provided clues in his Word for identifying ancient Israel. There is no debate that Israel fulfilled most of these marks and was identified by them. Even more exciting is the fact that these same features help us to identify Israel today!
Listed below are 16 aspects that positively identify Israel today. Just ask yourself, what modern-day people do they identify?
ü Israel was to become a great and mighty nation. (Gen. 12:1-3)
ü Israel was to become a vast multitude of people. (Gen. 22:17)
ü Israel was to form a multitude of nations. (Gen. 17:4-6)
ü Israel was to rule over other nations. (Deu. 15:6)
ü Israel was to be a blessing to all nations. (Gen. 22:18)
ü Israel was to always have a throne and a succession of kings. (Gen. 35:11, Gen. 49:10, Ps. 89:36, Jer. 33:17)
ü Israel was to have a new home, other than Canaan Land. (2 Sam. 7:10)
ü Israel’s new land was to be inhabited by people gathered from many nations. (Ez. 38:8)
ü Israel was to have a land of unwalled villages, without walls, bars or gates. (Ez. 38:11)
ü Israel was to have a land of great agricultural wealth. (Deu. 28:8-11)
ü Israel’s land was described as being the “camp of the saints.” (Rev. 20:7-9)
ü Israel was to have a new religion and be saved by YHWH. (Jer. 31:7, 31-37)
ü Israel was to carry the gospel to the entire world. (Isa. 49:3-6)
ü Israel was to be the only nation given God’s Law. (Ps. 147:19-20)
ü Israel was to be blind for the most part to her identity. (Isa. 42:16-19)
ü Israel was to be called by a new name. (Isa.62:2, Acts 11:26)
If Israel exists today, as she must, there is only one people whom all these identifying marks fit. They most certainly do not describe today’s “Jews.” But they do fit perfectly the Anglo-Saxon, Celtic, Germanic, Scandinavian, and kindred peoples. No one else has been a blessing to the world with its culture, art, technology, and churches as throughout western civilization. They also have carried on the tradition of kings and a royal family. Only one Monarchy in history can trace its existence from modern times back to Kings David and Solomon. Today’s Queen Elizabeth can trace a genetic link through the English, Scottish, and Irish kings back to the Hebrew Israelite kings of the Bible. The Stone of Destiny upon which most of these kings have been crowned for hundreds of years, is the famous Pillar Stone of Jacob that is mentioned in the Bible. They have also recognized the blood sacrifice from the earliest times as the early Celts, who offered animals, until after Jesus Christ became the sacrifice, which was recognized as Holy Communion in the church. Only these nations have claimed Christianity as their state religion.
Since the Anglo-Saxon people have claimed Christianity as their faith they have been called Christians (Acts 11:26). The former Israelite names in its various tribal forms were dropped. This is one reason why they appeared to be “lost” from history.
One of the main reasons people are not familiar with the truth about Israel is that we inherited our history from the Greek and Roman empires. The Greeks referred to them as “Phoenicians” since they had united with the city states of Tyre and Sidon during King David’s reign. Both rose into international superpower status between 1000 - 700 BC.
The Hebrew/Phoenician alliance established ports all around the Mediterranean Sea including Malaga and Cadiz on both sides of Gibraltar. They mined tin and other ores from Britain. A British historian of the 19th century, Sir Edmund Creasy noted that: “The British mines mainly supplied the glorious adornment of Solomon’s Temple.” They also mined copper from Lake Superior in North America to the point of exhaustion. Their travels around the world on commercial ventures usually took 3 years just as the later venture of Magellan. Colonies were formed wherever they went including the Adena culture in the Ohio valley known as “mound-builders.” When the first settlers in America moved westward they discovered these great burial grounds but tribes in the area at the time had no memory of who they belonged to. President Jefferson and William Henry Harrison, scientists, and others speculated that the mounds and earthworks were built either by Egyptians, Norsemen or the lost tribes of Israel. The Adena reached a high cultural level over 1500 years and then disappeared about 500 A.D. (from “The Adena Tablets” by Robert Lenhart, published in The Epigraphic Society, Vol. 13, 1985)
Another reason the Israelites were lost from history is that King David was humble and did not build monuments to himself or his conquests. To God alone be the praise.
Still another reason was their great antiquity. By the time of the Greek and Roman empires a thousand years had passed. Although Israel lost their identity by taking on other names, just as the Bible predicted, they called themselves by other names related to Isaac their father (as too the Bible predicted in Gen. 48:14-16) such as:
Iberian from Eber, father of the Hebrews,
British from Berith (Hebrew BRT for “covenant”)
Ireland from Hibernia, Eber again retained “land of Hebrews”
Denmark from Danaans or Danites from tribe of Dan
Saxon from “Isaac’s sons”
Even the alphabet is Semitic, the Hebrew, aleph, beth, gimel, daleth, etc. In Greek, alpha, beta, gamma, delta…. It is also a known fact that the Punic language (a later version of Phoenician used in Carthage) was almost identical to Hebrew.
There are many more such examples in the etymology of words.
Still another and more contemporary reason for ignorance about Israel is who controls the media and educational systems in our country. For political purposes they don’t want us to know who we are as the chosen of God. If we do, faith may arise to the point of repentance and a return to the Law of our God. Since America is a part of re-gathered Israel we are responsible to uphold His Laws. This would result in a true revival and de-throne the present financial/political system that enslaves us. It would be the end of our enemies’ New World Order and establish YHWH God’s kingdom.
You can believe what you want and remain deceived or you can be open to the evidence and the truth that will set you free. Deception runs deep and long. Ask yourself, why is it that the Jews can claim to be the chosen race and no one has a problem accepting that. But as soon as a White person claims they are of the chosen race then they are judged as a White Supremacist and Hater. Why isn’t the Jew called a Jew Supremacist and Hater? It’s because the world has been brainwashed by those in control and they are deceived. Someone is the chosen of God, and they are chosen for a particular purpose. It is time to find out who they are and what that purpose is.
