For those of you who are confused about the Hebrew Israelites; firstly IT IS NOT A RELIGION, it is an IDENTITY, a heritage, and a culture. The Negroes that came to America by way of cargo slave ships during the trans-Atlantic slave trade are the biblical Hebrews, the chosen seed of Jacob. Why is this a big thing? When was the last time the Negro was chosen to be anything other than a failure?
EXACTLY! So here's a brief run down to get the new comers up to speed.
The book of Deuteronomy, chapter 28 is the primary identifier of the children of Israel because it is written that the punishments for the ancestor's disobedience will be placed on the Hebrews as a sign and a wonder forever.
Deuteronomy 28:46 - "They shall become a sign and a wonder on you and your descendants forever.
The most defining sign can be found in the 68th verse. It says, "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."
The phrase, "BACK INTO EGYPT" refutes the first enslavement found in the book of Exodus. In fact, after the book of Exodus, Egypt was used to represent slavery, bondage, and enslavement throughout the bible.
HERE ARE A FEW EXAMPLES
Exodus 13:14 - "And it shall be when your son asks you in time to come, saying, 'What is this?' then you shall say to him, 'With a powerful hand the LORD brought us out of Egypt, from the house of slavery.
Deuteronomy 5:6 - am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
With this understanding, "into Egypt again with ships" can be better understood as, "into slavery again with ships." Now, when anyone mentions slave ships, everyone thinks of one thing. The trans-Atlantic slave trade. That's our first correlation, but how did the children of Israel get involved in a slave trade that took place on the western shores of Africa? It began with the...
...ATTACK ON JERUSALEM
70 A.D marks the notorious attack on Jerusalem by Roman soldiers lead by Titus. It was the climax of the discrepancies between the Romans and the Hebrews rebelling against their power.
Africa was always a safe haven for the Israelites throughout the bible...
- Joseph's family fled to Egypt to escape famine.
- Moses dwelled in the house of Pharaoh.
- Jesus and his family fled to Egypt to escape Herod's abortion campaign.
...so, after the attack on Jerusalem the children of Israel fled to Africa. Now let's take a look at a map showing where the trans-Atlantic slave trade took place.
NOW LET'S LOOK AT AN OLDER MAP PUBLISHED IN
1729 BY BRITISH CARTOGRAPHER, HERMAN MOLL.
This map was designed with the purpose of labeling British resource extortion points. This is the western coast of Africa, and we can clearly see that it was known as Negro Land during that time. This is why all of the slave ads of the chattel slavery era never mentioned the slaves were African. Let's view a few examples here...
Now, below is an ad for the return of a runaway slave. The reward for the return of Josiah Hill's slave is one slave from Guinea. The same Guinea specified on the Negro Land map.
The slave ads date back to the 17 and 1800's, and they're lining up with the west African map published in 1729.
The following picture shows a less popular version of Herman Moll’s Negro Land map. It was published in 1747, though this and the 1729 versions were designed well before there publishing date.
Paying attention to the circled areas of the map, we can see that it’s labeled Juda for Judah, as in the tribe of Judah that brought forth Jesus.
Right above the name Juda are the words Km of. The Km is an abbreviation of Kingdom, so there was a time that the Kingdom of Juda or Judah was known as a West African country.
NOW LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THE
TRANS-ATLANTIC SLAVE ROUTES AGAIN
Now let's read what the bible says about the assembly of Judah in the end times...
Isaiah 11:12 - And He will lift up a standard for the nations And assemble the banished ones of Israel, And will gather the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth.
Judah was banished to the four corners of the earth.
The Kingdom of Judah.
