Who Are Gentiles?

by R. Jerome Harris on November 23, 2011

There is a lot of bad information concerning who or what a Gentile is.

Most denominations within Christianity teach that a Gentile is anyone who is not a Jew. The Webster dictionary defines Gentile in this way:

A person of a non-Jewish nation or of non-Jewish faith.

Yet, from a Scriptural standpoint is this correct? 

Who Are The Gentiles According to Scripture?

At Genesis 10:1-5, we are told that Gentiles are persons who are descendants of Japheth.

The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah. And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

So we see that those who were of "the Sons of Japheth" produced what are called Gentiles. The European (that is, those known today as Caucasians) came from Japheth. Africans, for example, are not Gentiles, according to the Scriptures. How do I know this? Because the Scriptures that follow at Genesis 10:6 THEN proceed to speak about "the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan," the progenitors of those of African descent. So only those who are from the lineage of Japheth are "Gentiles." Those from Ham are not Gentiles.

And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan. And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtechah: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan. And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD. And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

So, those from the lineage of Ham are not classified as Gentiles.

What I find most interesting is that it was the people from the lineage of Ham – Africans – who were the first builders. For example,  Nimrod – a Son of Cush –  "began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD.  And, the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh."

When one thinks of this, it has monumental importance. Why? Because if the descendants of Ham (Africans) were the first builders of cities, then there existed in the land today known as Africa (and well beyond this modern man-made boundary), a dark-skinned people who were highly organized, highly intelligent – able to communicate, write, read and plan – long before the arrival of the European (descendants of Japheth) and Shem (Arabs) into the land we know today as Africa.

There is a mystery surrounding today as to who built the Pyramids. While modern-day Egyptians – who do not consider themselves Africans, but Arabs – claim their ancestors built the Pyramids, I no longer believe this is so. Why? Because Scripture clearly shows that it was the descendants of Ham (Africans) who were the first great builders and first to have cities and kings and kingdoms. It was Nimrod, a son of Cush, who built what is called the Tower of Babel. The common misconception is that it was built somewhere in modern-day Iraq. I no longer believe this. Why? Because long ago when Nimrod lived, there were no modern-day boundaries to call this Africa and that Iraq. All of that area back then would have been "The Land of Shinar." What is called Egypt today was occupied – not by the descendants of Shem or Japheth, but by the descendants of Ham.

I suspect that the Egyptian government today knows this and it accounts for their very hard stance on insisting that they are not Africans, but Arabs. It also accounts for why the Aswan Dam was built. That dam backed up the mighty Nile river and created a lake today known as Lake Nasser; which covers an area of over 2000 square miles!

Covered over and buried beneath Lake Nasser – I believe – is evidence and proof  of Ham's descendants being the ones who lived and thrived in that land. I believe that the building of that dam was by deliberate design to hide from the world, that there was once a great civilization that existed there long before European and Arab invasion of that continent. That it was that African civilization that built the pyramids we see today. This civilization even had a written language and we see this in what the European invaders call hieroglyphics. No European or Arab conceived of these writings. Yet, history books credit Arabs with mathematics, writing and a host of other sciences. I believe this to be a lie. Why? Not because I myself are of African descent, but because Scripture says that it was the descendants of Ham who were the first builders of cities.

There appears to be a major "cover up" effort by the present-day Egyptian government in concert with the Western nations to prevent discovery of the truth about this matter. Why build a dam that one knows would back up the Nile and cover over hundreds of miles of valuable archaeological evidence of ones ancestors – unless the ancestors were not theirs? Why are many ancient  "Egyptian" structures being dismantled? Why are many stone reliefs being covered over with cement? If such artifacts truly belonged to the ancestors of the modern-day Egyptians today, then one would think that they would do more to preserve them than dismantle and cover over.

Too, why is does the Egyptian government so closely monitor where tourist can go and what tourist are allowed to see when they visit Egypt?

Even a look at the Great Sphinx clearly shows that it is African. It's nose and lips – prominent features of Africans – have been conveniently disfigured by European Armies in past times (French and British who used it for target practice) . It was not that they fell off as some claim.

All of the stories about who built the Great Pyramids and who built them are all lies. The world has been taken off into a different direction and many have gone to tremendously great lengths to diminish the African – descendants of Ham. This is rooted in hatred and ethnocentrism. It is shameful that White men would rather sell the idea that aliens from outerspace built them rather than attibute their construction to the dark-skinned people who lived in the land very long ago.

The descendants of Ham (Africans) – not descendants of Japheth (Caucasians) or descendants of Shem (Jews and Arabs) –  built the towers we know today has the Pyramids. I believe The Book of Genesis tells us who built the Pyramids: The descendants of Ham.

Not one iota of proof has been produced that the Egyptians of today – who are of Arabic or Shemite descent –  built the pyramids. They have taken credit for something they did not do. They have purposefully covered over the evidence (with the help of the descendants of Japheth) and continue to do so today.

Why are persons of European descent in that land tellng the world about a people and history not his own? Why are persons of European descent in some elses backyard telling people who live in that yard how the Pyramids, Sphinx and Hieroglyphs came into existence. If the Arab Egyptians of today ancestors built them, why are THEY not telling us? Do they not know? If not, then why not? Could it be because their ancestors (Shem) did not live in that land and had nothing to do with them? Why are their no historical archives in possession of the "Arab" Egyptians? The man of European-descent has been busy creating a false historical archive and covering over the truth about Hams descendants who, today, predominate in that land: Black people.

All one has to do is turn on the history channel and watch the programs about the Pyramids. What is seen mostly are Caucasians (Japheth) in that land digging up stuff. Why? It is not to find things to enlighten the world, but to find and cover over. What one sees on TV is only what they want you to see and what they tell you is what they want you to believe.

How can a dark-skinned people (descendants of Ham) dominate by way of population in that land,  and their be no evidence of greatness or contribution? This makes no sense. The story being "sold" today would have people believe that they made no contribution to the human family. What has been arrogantly stood up before the entire world primarily is the contributions of those of European descent and secondarily those of Arabic or Shemitic descent. This can be seen in art, literature, and religion. Something is not right.

There has been a concerted and effective effort to paint Black people as ignorant and unintelligent on the world stage. Not only that, there has been an aggressive effort to perpetuate it. Why?

Genesis 10:1-5 clearly shows that ONLY the descendants of Japheth (Caucasians) are Gentiles. Descendants of Shem are Arabs and Jews, so they are not Gentiles either. And, as I have shown in Genesis 10:6, the descendants of Ham are not Gentiles. So Gentiles are Caucasians; and I know this is painful for many to hear.

As a former Jehovah's Witness I have to honestly say "shame on you Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society" for painting Nimrod as a bad person. You say that he was a person "in opposition" to Jehovah. What you have done in this regard is cast your lot along with the rest of Christendom in making it appear that the descendants of Ham – namely Nimrod and persons of African descent – made no contribution to the human family. You too, have "Europeanized" Scripture and do not want the world audience to which you distribute literature to, to visualize in a positive manner, persons in Scripture in a non-European manner.

Images of persons in  Scripture with Watch Tower publications – past and present – reflect that European mindset. The persons who sit at the top of the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society – The Governing Body – have been for very long time all White men. Only recently has a person of African descent (Sam Herd) been added. Yet, this small group of men is hardly representative of the 7 million or so racially diverse group. The organization  is still predominated by White men.

In the New World Translation Bible, the Watch Tower Society spins Genesis 10:9 to read:

He displayed himself a mighty hunter in opposition to Jehovah. That is why there is a saying: “Just like Nim′rod a mighty hunter in opposition to Jehovah.

Yet, there are no inferences in the ancient text that Nimrod was in opposition to Jehovah. All of the other Bible Translations read similarly to:

He was a mighty hunter before the LORD. Therefore it is said, "Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the LORD.

What is wrong with Nimrod being a Mighty Hunter? Yet, the Watch Tower has spun this to mean that Nimrod hunted down men for sport. There is no Scriptural support for this. And, as a long-time Jehovah's Witness, I know this because the Watch Tower taught me to be through in my research. Never did I think to use that thoroughness with regard to the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society.

I might add that it was Nimrod who introduced the hunting of animals. This makes perfect since because mankind did not eat meat (flesh of animals) in pre-flood times. They had no desire for it. It was only after the flood, where the first congregations of people where (in cities) did the eating of animal flesh begin. Thus, this would require the hunting and trapping of them. It was in this way that Nimrod was a mighty hunter. He would have been presented as one in opposition to God because God had previously (in pre-flood times) forbade the eating of animal flesh along with the blood.  One does not see in Scripture of any instance of eating of animal flesh in pre-flood times.

Now What of The Gentile Times?

If what Scripture teaches at Luke 21:24 is true concerning what it says about the "times of the Gentiles." Then what Luke is saying that there will never be a time on earth when those from Ham (African descent) will ever be in position of world power. Rather, it will be the "Gentiles," those from Japheth (Caucasians), who will be the ones who will be in position of power and dominance in the world. And, the Scriptures have proven this true and the march for world domination will continue by Japheth's descendants. This exactly what has been occurring and is occurring at present.

Scripture also teaches that the days of the Gentile Times has a limit and end.

Notice how Luke 21:23-24 reads:

But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

Note: Depending on which Bible translation you use, the expression "Gentile Times" may appear as "The Appointed Times of the Nations" as in the case of the New World Translation used by the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society.

I request that all who read this article do so with fairness because it is the Scriptures at Genesis 10:1-7 that tells us who are Gentiles and who are not. Only the descendants of Japheth are Gentiles. These would not be anyone of Hamitic descent (African) or Shemitic descent (Jews, Arabs), but those of the Aryan or Indo-European (Indo-Germanic) branch of the human family.

Again, here is Genesis 10:2-5:

The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah. And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

Many of the other Bible translations have really gone out of their way to cloud the thought that Gentiles are of Japheth European origin (Aryan or Indo-European).

I believe this is because it would make it appear that the Gentile Times or Appointed Times of the Nations (Gentile Nations) would refer to all non-Jewish nations. When in all actuality, Scripture is teaching what many do not want to hear, that it will be the progenitors of Japheth who will present themselves as the ones dominating and controlling and wielding power over the other nations.

No one today can honestly say that those of African descent (Hamitic) have ever  been in positions of power on the world stage to dominate anyone. In fact, if one were to look at those of African descent anywhere, one would have to admit that we are the most impoverished and oppressed people on the planet; hated and despised by many.

One cannot look at such things as nationality – such as African Americans. One has to look at the fact that we are descendants of the sons of Ham; and, that Scripture shows that the Gentile Times have a definite end. This is referring to descendants of Japheth – who today hold military, economic, and political power. More specifically the Caucasian peoples of nations of The United States, Great Britain, Germany, France, and others. 

Their world dominance will come to an end and God's Kingdom will replace them. (Daniel 2:44)

Hi,

Just commenting that you have misinformation on you website. Africans are not descendants of Ham but Japheth:

http://tikkunknits.wordpress.com/2007/11/01/chayei-sarah-keturah-life-beyond-boundaries/

Also there has been genetic evidence that Africans, Asians, Jews, Arabs all share more genetics with each other than with the Europeans so that tells me that Africans are definitely from Japheth. It has been found that Ham had a different mother than Shem and Japheth. Hope this helps!

Oh and I read that scripture and it could have been talking about Japheth’s descendants or Ham’s it wasn’t very specific about which one they were talking about.

Usually when one alleges “misinformation” – especially a generalization of “misinformation on ones website” – what they really mean one being in “disagreement” either with “their” view, a “popular” view, or someone else’s view. I TOTALLY disagree. Perhaps you should dig deeper into this.

The view that Black people came from Japheth is neither a popular view or one discussed WIDELY in scientific circles.

As far as I am concerned, it is all “slight of hand” tactics to further discredit Black people and the contributions of our ancestors and uphold the religious system that has misled the world in perpetuating the idea that Black people since the post-flood era were somehow backward and barbarian.

The African peoples are the descendants of Cush. (Cush is a son of Ham). They were FAR greater in number than the descendants of Shem or Japheth and are indeed still greater in numbers today than the descendants of Shem and Japheth. They were greater in many other aspects as well.

Many translators even render “Cush” as “Ethiopia. Actually, Ethiopians are also children of Cush.

I could go really indepth here, but it is necessary. Simple research will show the progenitor of the African peoples was Cush (the eldest son of Ham). Japheth had nothing to do with African peoples. Those of European descent came out of Japheth.

From Wikipedia (just one source)

“Cush (also Kush, Biblical כּוּשׁ Kûš) was, according to the Bible, the eldest son of Ham, brother of Mizraim (Egypt), Canaan and the father of the Biblical characters Nimrod, and Raamah, mentioned in the “Table of Nations” in the Genesis 10:6 and I Chronicles 1:8. He is traditionally considered the eponymous ancestor of the people of Cush, a dark-skinned people inhabiting the country surrounded by the River Gihon, identified in antiquity with Arabia Felix (i.e. Yemen) and Aethiopia (i.e. all Sub-Saharan Africa, particularly the Upper Nile).”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cush_(Bible)

I.E. ALL of Sub Saharan Africa.

The rabbit hole goes deeper than you might think.

What does it even matter? We are all children of God, and brothers & sisters reguardless of color or descent.

A typical dismissive. Truth matters. All are not God’s children. Many oppose God and his Christ. Can you say “antichrist.” So all are not God’s children.

Respectfully, because of “dismissive” comments like this, is why I write. Someone is working overtime to get people to “generalize” and not think.

It is very easy for certain races among mankind to open up books and watch movies with Bible characters portrayed in the likeness of “White” people. This does matter very much because it is not the truth. It would not be the truth if they were portrayed as Black people or any other race in the human family. It is not fair or right for young Black, Hispanic, and Asian children to have these false images implanted in there minds. If it does not matter then why are the personalities portrayed in Scripture portrayed in the likeness of persons of European descent?

That Gentiles are everyone accept Jews is a lie. Black people are NOT gentiles. Why are Blacks included as Gentiles when Scripture plainly say we are not? I will tell you why:

Because the ruthless powers and nations that control the world and it’s resources and who are also ruining the earth in the last days will be those who are descendants of Japheth (persons of European descent). Black people have no real power base in the world stage.

Truth seems to be only what some people want it to be. Ugly and terrible episodes in American History where Africans were enslaved and mistreated. Later lynched and hung from trees by “Church” folk. All are children of God?

ALL are not children of God. If they were, brothers and sisters (as you say) would not kill each other.

The worse culprits are those who find the telling of these things (the truth) painful and dismiss it as a matter of no account.

God will take account.

I praise Yah that you have begun to come out of the deceptive web spun by the Gentiles. When Scriptures says in Gen 9:27 and rendered by most translations as “…let Elohim enlarge Yapheth…”, the Hebrew word translated as “enlarge” actually means “deceive”. So it tells us that the so-called Jews in the land of Israel today are NOT descended from Yaqub, but are actually Gentiles, an allusion is also made in the book of Revelations to those who say they are Yahudi but rather are liars.
My brother, the next level is to discover and know the truth about many other lies that hold the whole world, including ALL of christiandom/churchianity in throes of the delusion of lawlessness, and you would do well to commence with the true Name of Yahuwah Elohim of our fathers, and Yahushua the Messiah, who like His brethren according to the flesh, are brown-black complexioned. A good source material with unassailable scriptural proofs is hebrewisraelites.org
May Yahuwah open the eyes of His elects and heritage in Yisrael and send His Ruwach to give life to the “dried bones in the valley”.
Shalom

Greetings:

Jesus The Christ was not a Jew, for the word Jew
is not even 500 years old. Jesus The Christ was a Negro with 9 ether Hair, or woolly hair. He also was a Hebrew for he came for his own, not the whole world, as we have been led to believe. The word Gentile in the Bible was referring to the Romans or Caucasians. Keep your blood
pure, do not mix with the Gentiles. Paul the Liar went against the teachings of Jesus the Christ. He wanted a Religion for the whole world. What fools you are for you are
following Lucifer, the fallen one. Truth is truth, and we are what we are by nature. Lucifer can not change his true nature, neither can a lion change it’s true nature, and this is why we kill in the name of our Gods. Regardless if you are Negro, Mongoloid, or Caucasian, each Race has a purpose for existing on this planet. Know thyself, which the European is constantly search for, and when he finds the truth, he will become enraged.

I can accept that because the expression “Jew” is only mentioned about 10 times in what is called the Scriptures. Abraham, was not a Jew, he was a Hebrew. However, who am I? Am I a Negro, an African American, a Black man? These are titles that someone else ascribed to me and not me myself.

Like Jesus was not a Jew, by your definition he could not have been a Negro either. Why? Because this expression (Negro) did not exist either. Neither did the expression “Caucasian” exist in those days so Jesus was not a Caucasian either.

You have taken a word “Negro” that Europeans in the 1400 popularized and you use it to define Jesus’ race? Does that make since. This is a word that has only been in existence for about 600 years!

My friend, you speak of truth. If you truly new the truth there would be a display of maturity. If you really cared that others know that truth, it is immature to call others “fools” because they do not see things as you do.

You are a victim like everyone else. You refer to Jesus as at Rev 1:14-15 having hair were white as wool and his feet were like fine copper. You are a victim of a European interpretation. This is not literal. Many love to use this Scripture as proof-text that Jesus was a Black man, but they leave out the statement that is sandwiched in between: “and his eyes as a fiery flame.” These are “literal” descriptions.

What Jesus looked like no one knows.

I do believe that the first man and woman were Black (African by today’s definition) and that all races of the human family came from them. I also believe that a major cover up as been ongoing for a very very long time to cover it up. Players in this cover up is the religious system call by men, Christianity, the European-based educational systems in the world, and the media.

Genesis Chapter 10 shows that it was a son of Cush -the progenitor of the Africans people – who built the first post-flood cities, had the first empires and kingdoms, and built great stone structures. A Son of Cush: Nimrod.

No person of color is a Gentile. This can be seen at Gen 10:1-5. The Gentiles are Japhetic, persons of European descent.

I know who I am and I know the land in which I came and from which my Fathers dwelled. (I live there now).

I do not ascribe to who persons of European-descent tell me who Jesus was. I believe that he had more in common with people of color and the downtrodden than people will ever know. I believe he was a “Brother.” Not necessarily a Brother in the sense of color.

Scripture makes it very clear,Jesus(Yahshua) is 100% black and you than you say no one has ever seen him.My Brother,please,please,Please!wake up,braise you sound confused when you stated that no one has ever seen him when in fact,the Israelie people at the time when the Mashiach walked the Earth in physical form saw him in the flesh and documented the true decription of him. The desciption of his feet looking like fine brass or bronze that (BURNT) in a oven.Lets be truthful here, its saying that he was black/very dark in skin complextion,literally.

Perhaps it is not what you want to hear. Your reply is simply a statement of what you choose to believe. That does not make it the truth. Neither does it make what you say the truth when you resort to dargging a Red Herring and claim that a person is confused. I have heard it all before. Good try.

Scripture does not make it clear what Jesus’ color was” 100% Black … or  White, Yellow, Red or ANY color. It wallows in the mire of humanity to usurp him as if he belongs to one race among mankind an dit misses completely why he was sent into the “world of mankind.”

I NEVER said no man has seen Jesus. All of my writings attest to that. I said that no one living in recent times has seen him to create an image of him as White, Black or any color. (I did say no man has never seen God). Jesus is NOT God.

It was Christ himself who stated that “No man has seen God at any time.” Not me. So was he confused when he made that statement?

The Scriprure you refer to – which you do not quote – is mentioned at Revelation 1:12-17 and it is a weak attempt to use it as proof text that Christ is or was Black.

First of all the Scripture at Revelation is showing John a vision of something in heaven, not something on earth. If you know your Scriptures, then you know that nothing flesh and blood lives in heaven. So what John saw was not something literal. John did not see flesh and blood.

When Jesus ascended, he did not ascend into heaven as a flesh and blood creature or man; he ascended and returned to the place and position he had when he was sent from heaven to the earth by his Father in heaven: An invisible being, an angel. Jesus even acknowleges his existence in the beginning WITH his Father. (John 1:1)

The one the world knew as a man – Yeshua (Jesus) – is no longer a man and should not be viewed as such. He is with his Father in heaven and like his Father in substance: Invisible. (Col 1:15)

It is petty and it shows a lack of discipleship to Christ when one wallows in the earthly idea that he is flesh and blood and to be remembered as such.

Not one image or portrayal of him in art, film, literature, and religion is accurate and correct as no one today has seen him to render him in any manner of man.

Taking Scriptures such as Revelation 1:12-17 out of its context – knowing that what the Apostle John was describing could not have been flesh and blood as flesh and blood does not reside in heaven – is a stretch of ones imagination.

The Master is alive but invisible and resides in heaven, the spirit abode from which he came. It takes faith to believe that he is since faith is “is the assured expectation of things hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld.” (Hebrews 11:1)

When the world makes The Son of God a man – something he is no longer – it shows they have no faith. It does not require faith in the thing one can see.

No my friend, I am not confused. You simply have not given any thought to what you wrote.

Flesh and blood does not reside in heaven, yet you would have persons “unthinkingly” believe that what Rev 1:12-17 is describing is a flesh and blood man. (1 Cor 15:20)

If God want emphasis placed on what color his Son was as a man, we would find it seeded throughout what is called Scripture. Yet, it is not there.

Lift yourself up above what this wicked world wants you to believe about the Master and what he looked like. This world never speaks the truth about him or his father in heaven. Yet, you have fallen for the oldest con games out there: That Yeshua is Black. If he “was” Black, no one today can know that and there is no evidence of that. And, he “is” today not Black. Neither was he or is he White.

It would be in error to portray him in the likeness of a Jew as no one knew what he looked like as a Jew.

True disciples of Christ would challenge ANY portrayal of Christ existing as a flesh and blood man.

He is no longer a baby and no longer man.

He should be viewed as he exists today in heaven: As an invisible entity. (Someone that you and I cannot see).

Brother you speak very well and you speak a lot of truths!!!!! However, it is not accurate that flesh and blood have not entered the kingdom of heaven (1Corithians15:50). There are many stories in the bible that clearly states that men were taken into heaven as ” flesh and blood” including this (Jesus). In (Gen.5:26) Enoch was so perfect in how he obeyed GOD but he also was a prophet of GOD, so GOD took him to Heaven “flesh and blood”. There is another story the story of Elijah the Prophet.. he was taken into heaven as flesh and blood (2Kings 2:11), and even in the story of Jesus he was to flesh and blood. In (John 20:26-29) Jesus himself let Thomas know that he was flesh and blood, he told Thomas to touch his hand and his side where his wounds were to demonstrate that he was real and that he was flesh and blood…. and he was taken to Heaven as such “flesh and blood”.

How can u say that the first man was black. Before noah there were people living on earth, and the bible doesnt even describe them. So u are wrong. I dont even know. However indo believe that the races were created after noah, his 3 children. I do agree with u about ham being the father of all black people. Now was ham black or was he cursed. I dont know. According to the bible, when ham saw his father naked, he was cursed. Now the question is why and how. Was he cursed because when he saw his fathers nakedness he had homosexual thoughts? And was his descentdents cursed by having a black child? Therefore leading to the black race? I dont know.

“The Bible” says it. Not me. Perhaps you should take the issue up with “The Bible.’

The human DNA tells the story. All races of man can come from persons of “African (Black)” descent but all races cannot come from persons of European descent.

I know that White people love to take credit for everything and portray Adam, Eve, Angels, Noah, Jesus, etc in their likeness. But I see or hear no “saying that THEY are wrong.” I SAY: They are wrong BIG TIME. Rather than say I am wrong, why are you NOT using that same line of reasoning that “since the Bible doesn’t even describe them” with regard the way Whites have been and are portraying  Adam, Eve, Angels, Noah, Jesus, etc? I don’t hear many of you say “How can you say that?” with regard that. Why not?

After the flood, we read of a man by the name of Nimrod. It is reported that he was a mighty one in the earth and engaged in city building and he is the first to have a kingdom – a vast kingdom – over the earth. He was also responsible for the work of pyramid building. (The White man changed the name to towers. But Nimrod was building pyramids).

What is interesting about Nimrod is his father. His father was Cush. Cush’s father was Ham. If one looks at Cush’s children, they were the progenitor of the Black people. (Genesis 10:7)

If Nimrods father Cush was a Black man, then Nimrod was a Black man. Thus, it was Black people who predominated and populated the earth. It was Black people who built the first cities, kingdoms and empires. It was Black people who built the mighty stone structures known as the pyramids and generated the writing form known as hierglyphs. Most White people will never accept this because it shows someone greater than they were here. Just as they would never accept Adam, Eve, Noah, Moses, Jesus as being dark complexioned people. The LIE can be seen in the images we see in the check out counters in grocery stores and in religious literature. Yet, where are the voices saying, “They are wrong.” Yet, I speak with truth and common sense and you say, “So u are wrong. I dont even know.”

YOU ARE IN ERROR. Ham WAS NOT cursed. His Son Caanan was.(Genesis 9:20-27)

Nimrod, the son of Cush (who was the progenitor of the African or dark-skinned people) is the key. Coming out of the flood, this is where mankind had its “second start.” ALL races of mankind that we know of today, came from out of that DNA. That is why the earth is predominately people of color. That is the MOST POWERFUL evidence of all that the first man and woman were NOT White people, but persons of color.

Listen to White scientist say about Adam and Eve in this 1988 Newsweek article:

Either way, it appeared that all these ancient humans traced their lineage back to Africa, because that was the only place with evidence of humans living more than a million years ago.”

Before you begin concluding OTHERS are wrong, perhaps you should slow down and understand the book you claim to believe. Ham was NOT cursed. 

Genesis Chapter 10 is a great place to start. But you must read it without prejudice.

Did you understand all of that? I don’t see why you wouldn’t.

Maybe you just missed it before because someone else who was in error taught you. I don’t know.

I have stated many many times in my writings and videos that members of the religious system called by men, Christianity, seeks primarily and foremost “agreement” and “acceptance” of their teachings and views (which are not, incidentally, the teachings of Christ). Your responses show that. You seek simply to be “agreed” with without question or challenge to you. There is no thought to persons knowing the truth. It is a “disproving” of persons that you seek. The “disproving” has nothing to do with what Christ taught, but a “disproving” of what the religious system “Christianity” teaches.

Any disproving – as you call it – is of your own accord. It apparently is the only way you can validate what you “chose” to believe by saying you have disproved someone. As it it is written, “You conclude the matter before it is heard.”

It is not up to you, me or any human to prove or disprove anything related to the truth. God through His Son will do that as His Son is “The Truth.” (John 8:31-32)

It is too bad that so many waste so much time at fighting with others with a view to “proving them wrong.” Some denominations within Christianity teach that Jesus is God while others do not. Each of them try to “disprove” the other. To each side, THEY believe THEMSELVES truthful. Yet, the bottom line is what “Christ” says; not you, me, or any other human.

With regard who the Gentiles are, no mistake has been made. You may choose to call it a mistake, but your words count for very little; it is what God and Christ state. Genesis 10:1-5 tell us that the sons (descendants) of Japheth (European) are Gentiles. Those descendants do not include the sons (descendants) of Ham – the progenitor of what are called African people – which are mentioned NEXT from Genesis 10:6-20. So NO person of African descent is a Gentile.

I fully understand why you would reject this – though it is very clear – and it is because it does not fit with what is popularly taught by the religious system called by men Christianity. It seeks to lump persons of Hamitic descent in with those of Japhetic descent and call them all Gentiles. Yet, the evil in the world has not come out of the Hamitic lineage, it has come out of the Japhetic. The World Powers today are Japhetic, not Hamitic. The “Gentitle Times” will come to an end. God will strip away their power. No, He will not give it to those of Hamitic or Shemitic (Jews and Arabs) descent. Christ will rule supreme over the earth. It is a cowardly thing to make innocent people (those of Hamitic) descent “Gentitles” and parties to the henious crimes committed upon the human family by descendants of Japheth. It was the sons of Japheth that enslaved the sons of Ham (Africans).

If many of you were not so hardened as to get others to “accept” what “you” say as opposed to directing persons to listen to what “Christ” says, matters would go very well for you.

Many of you present yourselves as rude, intolerant, and hateful towards ANY who do not go along with what you say. Such is not from above and not from God and Christ. This “attitude” many of you have is from another source.

I am grateful and humbled that my Master has taught me endurance. I fully understand why at times he did not answer others. Not because he did not know the answer, but because he knew that certain persons already “concluded” the matter and believed a certain way. And, no matter what he would say to them, would matter.

That you felt the need to keep posting numerous times and stating you have “disproven me COMPLETELY” and stating “Did you understand all of that? I don’t see why you wouldn’t” STRONGLY shows you are seeking “agreement” and when you can’t extract it, you show the true spirit within you.

I love allowing these types of responses to appear on my blog because they show visitors and readers the type of “fruitage” in persons the religious system called by men create. It serves as powerful testimony that many claiming to be friends of Christ – by their words and behavior – prove false to him and become his worst enemies. Christ needs no enemies with “friends” like some of you.

So thank you, for those “expressions” of Christian love. Too bad Christ did not authorize the establishment of something called “Christianity.” The sons of Japheth (Europeans) did. And, they don’t like persons like me because I refuse to accept what “THEY” teach to the world about my Master.

Yes, this “evil slave” (Christianity) will beat me because I defy it, but I will always be loyal to my Master Jesus [the] Christ and will listen to him. (Matthew 24:48-49; Luke 9:35)

It looks like I struck a nerve. The truth agitates in that way.

Hello Wyleaner,

I appreciate your fine comment about me; I do not get many comments like that. But I know that I must speak and write because I know something is very wrong and so many people are being led about and made to sit in a “morally sitting” posture and just going along with the things they are told with question, challenge or investigation.

I am an African American who lives and works in Africa; and I apologize for this late reply as Internet service in this “remote region” where I live is not very reliable.  It would not be possibe for me to do an interview. I am reluctant to do interviews because the teachings and TRUTH are not MINE. I have no teachings or followers and neither do I seek any. I shy away from the public limelight because I do not want glory for myself like so many men and women do.

There is only one truth and it is The Son of God. (John 14:6)

Discussions with others on a panel (a public display) over such topics and matters of Scripture would only result in “Heated Debates” and that is not the way of teaching of my Master Jesus [the] Christ. Such public displays bring no honor to him or his teachings.

My Nephew and Neice live in Las Vegas and I wa stationed at Nellis AFB quite a few years ago when I was in the Air Force.

Yet, I would be very happy to answer any questions you might have.

I must caution you, however (smiling), I do not hold back from speaking what others might find painful to hear.

Good points, but, in the light of the whole truth I must point out that Ham’s descendeants were cursed by Noah, well, at least Canaan. It was Ham’s wife that had the ark of cain. Cain was the offspring of satan and eve. It was at the tower of Babel where the people tried to build a tower that would reach heaven so they could be just like God and that is why God destoyed it and turned their one language into 
“babble” and so they people flocked with like kind and dispersed. Egypts pyramids were buit by mizraim sons (egypt) and no one black asian white jew could have built it, that’s why it was so astonishing. I believe demon spirits, nephilim probaly heped along with their knowlledge of physical and spiritual magic . You also so the same type structures in Mexico with the azrec and mayan culture. How coud you have the same structure in a vatly different part of the world without some type of connection?  You can’t just state a half truth, you will be one sided. I notice you try to make everything  look good to black people which is fine, but, you leave out important truths to make your race look good.

What you state is what YOU believe. I have absolutely no problem with that … and it is NOT my place to say that you are not entitled to what you believe as you most definitely are. Yet, when you state one speaking of half-truth is just that: A statement. What I write have nothing to do with making my race “look good” as you state. I hope that is not what you reduce my writings to.  We all should be very concerned that we are being lied to and misled. All people of color should be concerned about why almost everything in the world revolves around the man of European descent; what I call a European conceived universe that we all are supposed to subscribe to. It is not logical that a world in which people of color predominate and history (as told by Europeans) make it appear that people of color have made no contribution. I live in Africa now and I listen to the old people, the old African historians and they tell quite a different story than what the European tells the world. My mind tells me that the people who live here would know more about their own history that “outsiders.” Sadly, what is called “World History” is not that at all. It is the history of the world as told by Europeans. This even crosses over into religion; especially what is called by men, Christianity.

I have a duty to myself and my African ancestors to know MY history as they told it. The problem is that the man of European descent “pushes” upon the world “what” is the truth about hitsory. It is “his way or the highway.” I happen not to agree with what I learned in grade school about world history as I saw no one in those books that looked like me. Now, we are having pushed upon us the lies that Adam, Eve, Angels, Jesus, God, The Prophets, The Apostles, etc are in the likeness of the European (White people) in art, film, literature, etc. So when you speak about “half-truth” do you really know what you are saying or are you looking the other way like so many others not wanting to confront the truth. Why are White people not asking these questions such as why are the persons mentioned in the Bible portrayed “falsely” in this way. Few will question it. But it is not even half-truth, it is a lie.

All persons interested in the truth should want the truth told without fear of being labeled “apostate” or disloyal to God and Christ. Sadly, religious organization seems to want loyalty to themselves and what they say rather than what God and Christ say. Anyone speaking or thinking differently than what “bulk” Christianity says as opposed to what God and Christ says will be made out to be a bad guy and will have a foul stench of a label placed upon them.

All persons wanting to know the truth need to stop being in fear of men (and their mighty religious organizations) and have a reverant fear of God and a deep respect for the words of the one that he sent. This one – the Messiah – is not as the man of European descent has presented him and I “know” that the man of European descent has got it all wrong. If he was teaching Christ aright, the “Christian” we see today would not be threatening, condemning, violent, warlike and unloving. Depsite Christ teaching that they are to love God, their enemies and each other.

I understand what ou say and how you feel. I would proabaly feel the same way if I was black and all I saw were pics of jesus as white. As far as christianity goes, deception and evil aer infiltrated everywhere, that is satans job, to destroy God and his image and that can be said of some people in chrieitanity. Christ means god with jesus so they are two in one. It is up to you to follow and obey God no matter if other people aer not, that is what makes you a christ follower, christian. Don't like at everybody in the church, there not all in the right spirit. Don't disown the truth b/c somebody happened to be a hypocrite, call it what it is, a hypocrite and move on. That is why it is important to know the truth, the holy spirit, he wil guide you in truth if you seek him not manly knowledge.  Peace

Respectfully, I know the truth: It is Christ and his teachings. (John 8:31-32)

It might not be what is popularly taught (which I think is in error), but what I know clings closely to what CHRIST taught, not what religious organization teaches or wants me to believe.

Your statement, “I would proabaly feel the same way if I was black…” is most curious. It is almost like you are saying that because you are not Black, you cannot make yourself feel a certain way.

When you see images of Adam, Eve, Angels, Jesus, The Prophets, The Apostles and others portrayed EVERYWHERE in art, film and literature as persons of European descent WHY would YOU let the color of your skin NOT make you feel that something is not right about all of that? Especially, if you claim that you are a follower of Christ and whose job is to deal strictly with TRUTH.

I am a Black man and I would have a problem if these characters were portrayed in the likeness of ANY race among mankind. Why? Because no one today knows what they looked like. Even as a Jew, no one knows what Jesus looked like.

My children and grandchildren (and any children they will have) will grow up seeing these persons portrayed as White people. They will grow up revering White people because they will associate the things of God and of heaven with White people. (This will not be a problem for the offspring of White people).

The mistake made – and it was a MAJOR mistake – was that someone decided to make the persons of the Bible I mentioned above in the THEIR likeness. What kind of mind would do something like that? Furthermore, what kinds of persons would actively perpetuate it?

The truth needs to be told about such portrayals as they do not come from God. They come from one race among mankind and The Most High God did not authorize it.

No one race among the human family is greater or superior than the other. And such portrayals misrepresent God and Christ, misrepresent Christs teachings, mock God and heaven, make anything written in the Bible appear Ayran in nature.

So Ham's son mizraim became the Egyptian race, brother to cush, phut and canaan. Egypt enslaved the jews, maybe that's why back people have been ensaved?  Just thinking. There were two slave trades, arab in the east and european in the west. It does make sense when comapring noahs curse saying a servent you will be to your brothers shem in the east and japeth in the west. God is soverign and if he does something it is his will. so it might be carried out by other men but it still was allowed by God. Nobody should blame others. Start with yourself.

R. Jerome Harris September 9, 2013 at 9:09 am

This is what the man of European descent wants the world to believe about people of color. Yet, neither God or his Christ are color conscience; people are. I am truly amazed how “this man” convinces himself that it was God’s will to curse an entire people and this is his justification for enslaving another race of people because they believed them “cursed.” It is mentalities such as these that makes the religious system called by men, Christianity dangerous and dysfunctional. This same mentality would also say that was also God’s will to gas six million Jews, to drop atomic bombs on a nation, to engage in Salem Witch Hunts, The Crusades, The Spanish Inquisition. When what it really boils down to is a cover for their own evil acts that they perform “In the Name of God.”

Was it Gods will that this man of European descent portray Adam, Eve, Angels, Jesus, Moses, Noah, etc in THEIR likeness? 

Noah’s curse upon his Grandson Canaan has nothing to do with skin color. Canaan’s decendents were not Blacks. Blacks did not descend from Canaan, but from Cush, the Son of Ham. (Genesis 10:6-7)

Seba is later used when referring to another people in the eastern part of Africa and evidently close to Ethiopia. (Isa 43:3) 

Good try in attempting to perpetuate a myth and lie spread by Christianity and it’s membership in continually pulling people down because of their skin color and elevating another race among the human family.

It is ashame that many of you make God like yourselves rather than you being like God (as far as he thinks).

The Apostle Peter said it best about God and that he does not look at skin color:

“At this Peter opened his mouth and said: “For a certainty I perceive that God is not partial,  but in every nation the man that fears him and works righteousness is acceptable to him.” (Acts 10:34-35)

 

My mention of race on this blog is only to show how one race among mankind has usurped God’s interests and made them in his (The man of European descent – Japhetic) likeness. And, that this is wrong.

There is no way I am going sit by idly and let such myths about Black people such as the ones you have presented go by unchallenged. Especially when one claims and believe that it is God’s will and they actually EXPECT persons to accept it without question or challenge.

I hate to say it, a lot of White people (not all) are very selfish in this regard. They want the world to subscribe to THEIR interpretation of God and His universe and dare any to challenge them. I BOLDLY challenge such persons.

Of course, there are those who are quick to say “racist” when all I am doing is challenging, questioning, and putting the bringers of these lies into accountability. This is what they do not like. They simply want to be agreed with without challenge.

Truth is truth and very little do I see coming from that camp as far as God and Christ is the truth. They lost my vote when they portray of persons in the Bible in the likeness of the man of European descent in art, film, and literature. This is the beginning of the lies and an entire false system of religion has been built upon such lies. Such portrayals – being that they are false – make them NOT from God or Christ.

These portrayals accomplish one thing: Elevate one race among the human family over the others. And, many withing that race have an Aryan mentality and believe God cursed Black people. Blacks did not come from Canaan, but from Cush.

I have been saying this to my friends and relatives for years, “black people are NOT GENTILES”. But, they look at me as if I had two heads. I grew up in a church that celebrated Christmas, complete with Christmas tree. We celebrated Easter, complete with Easter eggs and those little marshmellow rabbits. We also, recognized Sunday as the Sabbath Day. Christians went on “Honey Moons”, and still do today, and knowone ever even noticed; or cared. They would say things like, “Jesus, is the reason for the season”, and such, and didnt even care that the December 25 date was the same date as the winter solstice!

These are the people to whom we are intrusting our faith? They dont want to know the truth!  If you cant trust the establishment to tell you the truth on small issues, what makes you so confident that they will lead rightfully on the big issue, “Salvation”.

I agree with you completely.

Myself having grown up in the inner city and raised a “Methodist,” I heard these same expressions as well. They are chanted like a mantra from the pulpit to this very day and our people have no clue what they mean. Neither do the preachers at the pulpit know. They are expressions without substance. They are designed to lull us to sleep.

I was told by a Black preacher in my old neighborhood that such expressions are what Black people expect to here. He said to me that “poor uneducted Black folk from the country aren’t going to understand the truth or the deeper things of God. So I give them what they want, a lot of show.”

This religious system called by men (White men) Christianity has effectively prevented the truth about God from being highlighted. It has effectively misled the world and settled the world of mankind into a deep slumber that is extremely difficult to unplug people from.

My grandparents passed on to my parents the Christmas and Easter celebrations to. I know now that my Grandparents did not lie to my parents and neither did my parents lie to me and by Brothers and Sisters. My Grandparents (and great Grandparents and African ancestors) wer lie to by the European and American Slave Masters who stripped them of their African identities and violently imposed a European-conceived religion (Christianity) upon them. Our ancestors were innocent – like children in the White mans world – and innocently passed on to us what the White man imposed upon them. The problem is that many of their offspring (us) never stopped to question and challenge what they were told; we simply accepted everything and to this very day, perpetuate the White mans lies and portrayals of God and His Prophets and Messiah.

Today is a new day. Until the day I die, and with my last breath, I will honor my African ancestors and expose the lies and the usurpation of God, The Prophets and the Messiah by the man of European decent for themselves and making everything in THEIR likeness and creating this European-conceived universe that he actually DEMANDS people of color to accept as truth. 

European man has made a mess of things and is in denial of this mess he has made of the world and he has not respected God’s creation (the earth itself and the people of the earth). He seeks to dominate and control it all.

Here in Africa where I am currently living, I see what he has done here. He has taken control of a land rich in natural resources that not his own and a people not like himself and impoverished the people here. How did he do it? By first sending in his foot soldiers: The Christian Missionary. This is how he did it. The imposition of the “European-Brand” of Christianity here in Africa has softened and made pliable and controllable the African mind. The result: They revere and worship images of Adam, Eve, Angels, Jesus, The Prophets, The Apostles, etc in the likeness of the European. Moreso, it causes them to “subconsciously” revere White people and look to themselves as somehow inferior to them.

The man of European descent has no conscious. He relishes in what he has done and still does today using the foretold misleader and deceiver of the world: Christianity. (Matthew 24:4-5)

But if Ham was Black, woundn't common sence at Lead you to believe hIs father and Brothers Were Black.. So a better Question would be How did the Gentiles Become White. The Bible suggest the Ethopians (cush) and Mizriam (egypt) could not be told apart by the gentiles.. For example, Josheph Bothers did not Reconize him and at Jacobs Funeral to the on lookers it look like a presession of Eyptains when the Majority of the crowed was Hebrew.. Amos 9:7 also clearly saw the children of israel looks are Like Cush unto him.  Oh, when paul was in Prison and he was begging for his life in Greek a guard was surprise and ask him how did a Egyptians know how to speak Greek, Paul told him he was Hebrew of the Tribe of Benjermin.  Again, would it not make since since the father of Cush Look like his uncle Shem? Jews are Black.  Another Use for the term Gentile would be an Israelite who lives among the Gentiles and took on there customs.. the Bib le them Gentile Also. these were the Gentiles Paul was talking about.. he was still preaching to Israelites who who was Born amonst gentiles looking to get a better understanding of the Gospel of the Messiah..  Matthew 1:22 and you will call him Emanuel for he will deliver HIS PEOPLE FROM THEIR SINS.. Who is his People? why would they need to be saved from his sin.. I'm not saying there is no salvation for a Gentile, but Salvation was giving to Israel First and then who ever else wants to keep his Laws and Commandments… Please email me with any information that refute what i disclosed to you..

We are ALL God’s children because God created man. We are his children and He our Father (Creator)

Adam, according to Matthew 3;38 was a ‘son of God.” Therefore, Adam was a “child” (son) of God.

Therefore, what does that make us since we ALL came from Adam? Children of God. (He is our Creator; Our Father)

Since we ALL have the same Father and Creator, that makes ALL of mankind brothers and sisters.

It is mankind and their religions that create the separations and teach that a brother and a sister are those who belong to the same race, religion, etc.

The reason why Christ loved all sorts of persons – even his persecutors and executioners – is because he recognized the above.

Those claiming to follow him SHOULD have the same mindset as he. Sadly, many do not.

They kill and condemn their brothers and sisters. They are like Cain.

Dear Jerome Harris.

I see you know a lot of truth that is very good. I also see you still believing Caucasian lies. But Jesus is NOT the messiah either. That is also a lie made by the Caucasian. The true Messiah is Elijah Muhammad, of the Nation of Islam. Malchi 4:5 Behold I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the lord.

Christianity is the religion of the whites. The religion of The Gentiles, who forced our religion on you. When you brought you over from Africa. Where you had your own religion (Islam) Abraham was no jew o
r Christian he was Muslim. Which literally means, one who has submitted to God.

R. Jerome Harris March 3, 2014 at 3:54 am

I cannot engage with you on this because you cross the line of being disrespectful.

Such is the modus operandi of persons out of ALL of the religious groups when they are NOT agreed with.

I always become highly suspicious when persons want so badly that persons “accept” what they believe and when they don’t then they reach into their “bag of emotion” and begin to insult the other.

This tells me two things:

(1) The teachings of the religion in which that person belongs has not sunk deep enough into that person to prompt them to be respective of others even if they do not agree.

(2) It shows spiritual immaturity. Not that the person himself is not mature, but on the spiritual side, something is missing. Certainly, anything from God would not prompt someone to conduct themselves in words and deed to be that way.

Religion of all sorts is a bully. The persons within them are fine with you as long as you speak the same language (agree). 

Just like the air that you and I breathe (but cannot see), there is a an evil entity that has influenced not only White men to carry out their evil agendas, but also Black men to carry out their own upon their own people. Evil is evil my Brother. It is just some have the resources to do more of it.

You should look up Minister Louis Farrakhan he is a messenger of Almighty God. And he was risen among your people. Satan is not a spook or a ghost, he is a man. he is the white race, those who deceive the whole world, lie, and shed blood. Do those qualities match both Satan, and the white race. Yup! That’s because they are on and the same. There is NO such thing as a DEMON. There are humans whoever, who are and act like devils. That spook business about Satan being a demon or spiritual entity. Is all a well fabricated lie by the white race. When we and by we I mean (Caucasian) because I am white. When we took your people from Africa. There was a very specific plan, in mind. With a very specific scientific method to oppress your people. I’m going to break that down for you. Christianity is a CORRUPTED form of religion because. Most people who practice it. Believe Jesus was the son of God, and that he sent him down to die, and pay for their wicked sins. That’s a lie! I know of no righteous god who would send a righteous man down to die for wicked people. Just so they can keep on sinning. Also if God sent Jesus down. To die for our sins, then why is there a day of Judgement. Where every man will be judged according to his works? What’s all this talk of hell if Jesus came and paid for our sins? Sounds to me that Satan (The white race) Have tampered with the scripture. There’s a lie here we got to figure out today. The truth is the Gentiles have gone so far as to. Lie about who the real Messiah is.
Now when my people brought yours to America, England, and all other white countries. We packed you on ships. Where you defecated on one another, urinated on one another, puked on one another. You would die at such rapid intervals sharks didn’t even have to go anywhere else to look for food. They just followed the slave ships. A lot of you even died froma disease called Melancholy. Due to the severe oppressive nature of what we did to you. Black people would die of sadness. Now we are gonna go deeper here. The resurrection of the dead talked of in The Bible. Does not mean resurrection from the grave. Dead people can not return to life. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught that is impossible. The resurrection of the dead is talking about. A mental resurrection of the dead. We are in a dead mental state imposed on us by Gentile rule. Especially the black man and woman who became slaves and their descendants. My ancestors coined the phrase negro, not from the spanish word meaning black. NO! That’s a lie! The true meaning of the word negro is derived from the latin root word NECRO. Meaning dead, or nuetral. That word was given to your ancestors by mine. Because they knew they had stripped you of all light (or knowledge) and left you in total darkness (or ignorance). When they stripped from you your religion, your heritage, your language, and even your own names. When your people arrived to the so called new world. You were forced to mate, whether you wanted to or not. To produce children, and when the mothers were 5-8 months pregnant. The white slave master would tie the mother to the tree. Where he forced all the other mothers who were pregnant to watch him. Take a knife, and slice the woman from her sternom bone, down her belly, and at the bone at the top of the vagina. Releasing the unborn child from her stomach. Where it then fell to the dirt, and that slave master would stomp that child’s head with his boot into the ground. Killing it. And when the mothers who were forced to watch this, saw that devil kill that child. The message perceived in that mothers eyes. Were sent through her brain, with a message of adrenaline and fear straight to that child, and that child would be born. Automatically in fear of the Caucasia

The Caucasian knew exactly what he was doing, and he was using science to make a slave race. Now when the first generation of babies were born. From those originally taken from Africa. The mothers and the fathers, would be killed. Now ask yourself why is that? Because they knew!!! That the mother and father was crucial to the child’s development. So when the parents were killed. There would be nobody that would be there to pass on the mother tongue, the father’s name, the culture, the religion, the heritage. Your roots and your very identity was taken from you. And you then became whatever the Caucasian wanted to make you into. You were an empty vessel who he could teach to be a negro, someone who is dead, who doesn’t know who they are. It goes deeper. We then gave you our names and took yours. So ask yourself why? Because a name denotes possession. So by doing this, you became his. When a man marries a woman, what does the woman do? She takes the man’s name, why does she take his name? Because she is acknowledging she is his. At least according to tradition. :). There is nothing more beautiful to a person than the sound of their own name. Which is why Roger feels so important after you meet him, when you say. Hi Roger, how are you doing. He feels important cause you remembered his name. So we took your love for self, your importance, and the biggest sin the gentiles made. Was when we forced you. The black man and woman. (God’s chosen people above all others THE TRUE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL) To call us Master, derived from Lord, MEANING GOD. What we did there! Is we put ourselves up as gods besides God! We forced you to worship us, and you lost all sense of your true self, and we commited the biggest sin of all. Which the gentiles are foretold to do. But God has come to redeem you of the WHITE hand of the devil. Look up Louis Farrakhan, the TRUE representative of the TRUE Messiah. The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Peace brother, and may God grant you the light of understanding.

That is the lie, that we the gentiles. Have inherited from our fathers, and that our fathers inherited.

Historically, there has been a problem with deifying and following men. One should never do that as far as I am concerned.

No human is good. We may do “good things” but none are good.

A true messenger of God would not be one for some people – for example Black people – but one sent for ALL people.

A true messenger of God would not be one who speaks only of the evils of America (and America is evil), but of a whole world in which America is only a part of.

Each race among the human family seeks to gather – through their respective religions – Prophets and holy men. It results in a “War of the Gods.”

Not only is America’s doom has a date on it, but that of the entire world. It is the entire world that “has already” been tried and found guilty and sentenced for destruction. It is only a matter of time and there is nothing Minister Farrakhan or any human can say that will change it. In fact, nothing he says is new to me.

He is obessessed with America’s evils and he is not seeing a much bigger picture: The entire world – as we know it – goes down in destruction. A “new man” will be raised up.

This new man will have no desire to dominate another because of the color of his skin. It will be a world that even the folks over at the “Sci-Fi Channel” cannot recreate.

No, there are no messengers of God today. If God had sent one, ALL of the world would be listening to that messengers message. Here in Africa (the part in which I live), the Africans here never heard of Louis Farrakhan.

They DO know a “White Jesus” though.

Hello Mr. Harris,

Thank you for this thought-provoking post. If you don't mind me asking, what country do you currently reside in Africa? (fellow Hamite here, lol) Like you, I've always wondered why the word "gentiles" is carelessly thrown around so much, when its clear (at least when you read the KJV) that God specifically used that term to label Japeth's descendants. I recall reading in my study bible that Abraham was mentioned as a "heathen" until he heeded God's call. I have to do more research, but what I'm waiting to see is if that term is used anywhere else in the Bible to describe any other nation besides Europeans — because it obviously wasn't used to refer to Abraham while he dwelled in Ur of Chaldees. From my recollection, Paul uses the word "Gentile" quite frequently because obviously this is where he took the gospel to since the Hebrews largely rejected the gospel. Notice, he never addressed his fellow Hamite brothers and sisters (who dwelled right next door to Jerusalem) as GENTILES, right? Neither was the Ethiopian eunuch described as a "Gentile". In Gen 10, God carefully labeled Japeth as a Gentile, but he never does for Ham nor Shem — I believe if he wanted them to be known as Gentiles, he would have clearly stated as such.

Anywho, I just wanted to get further clarification on the sons of Ham. Most scholarship (even racist scholarship) agrees that Ham was Black. If Ham was Black, then so were ALL his sons — Cush/Ethiopia, Mizraim/Egypt, Libya or Somalia, and Palestine/Israel. This includes Egypt or Khemet, which means “Land of the Blacks” (not Land of Black soil like what “modern” scholarship tries to convey). Blacks didn't just come from Cush only and here's the proof. Let's take Egypt for example. The attempt to whitewash the Blackness of Egypt is a relatively recent phenomenon, due to the demonic social construct of white supremacy; which burgeoned around the 18th century to justify slavery and colonialism. However, according to the Greek and Roman contemporaries of the ancient Egyptians, as well as the British Egyptologists who studied them, the ancient Egyptians were undeniably a BLACK people. These are their own words:

- Gerald Massey, English writer and author of the book, Egypt the Light of the World, wrote, “The dignity is so ancient that the insignia of the Pharaoh evidently belonged to the time when Egyptians wore nothing but the girdle of the Negro.” (p 251)

- Sir Richard Francis Burton, a 19th century English explorer, writer and linguist in 1883 wrote to Gerald Massey, “You are quite right about the “AFRICAN” origin of the Egyptians. I have 100 human skulls to prove it.”

- Scientist, R. T. Prittchett, states in his book The Natural History of Man, “In their complex and many of the complexions and in physical peculiarities the Egyptians were an “AFRICAN” race (p 124-125).

- The Ancient Greek historian Herodotus, who visited Egypt in the 5th century B.C.E., saw the Egyptians face to face and described them as black-skinned with woolly hair”

- ‘Those who are too black are cowards, like for instance, the Egyptians and Ethiopians. But those who are excessively white are also cowards as we can see from the example of women, the complexion of courage is between the two.’ Aristotle, Physiognomy 6″. . the men of Egypt are mostly brown or black with a skinny and dessicated look”.

- Anthropologist, Count Constatin de Volney (1727-1820),spoke about the race of the Egyptians that produced the Pharaohs. He later paid tribute to Herodotus’ discovery when he said:

- “The ancient Egyptians were true Negroes of the same type as all native born Africans. That being so, we can see how their blood mixed for several centuries with that of the Romans and Greeks, must have lost the intensity of it’s original color, while retaining none the less the imprint of it’s original mold. We can even state as a general principle that the face (referring to The Sphinx) is a kind of monument able, in many cases, to attest to or shed light on historical evidence on the origins of the people.”

- The fact that the ancient Egyptians were black-skin prompted Volney to make the following statement:
“What a subject for meditation, just think that the race of black men today our slaves and the object of our scorn, is the very race to which we owe our arts, science and even the use of our speech.”

And this is but a few…..

I currently reside in the nation-Island of Sao Tome and Principe. On the map, you will find it just off the coast of West Africa near the equator. I also lived in Northern Africa (Morocco) for a while as well. The African people here lack education. Sao Tome was one of the “drop-off” points during the slave trade. You can still see the plantations (Rosas) here. The Portuguese settled the country and ran harsh slave labor camps. They also imposed their European religion, tradition and culture upon the African people here.

The people lack education. So all they have to go on is “belief” rather than “knowing.” That is what the European has done here. The Sao Tome people are primarily Catholic and there is a strong Seventh Day Adventist and Jehovah’s Witness influence here that contributes to keeping the African in the dark and “not-knowing.” It is common to see African people revering images of a White Jesus, Virgin Mary and the other so-called saints. They revere the Pope. It is almost as if they do not like their skin color.

We must be careful in looking to the Bible as an authority. Here is why? Because it was fashioned by the man of European descent. Do you know who King James was? Who told him to “authorize” such a book? Many still can’t break free from a book that “conveniently” appears on the scene AFTER Christs ascension. The man of European descent has encroached upon and usurped the things that God has spoken to suit his needs and agenda.

The man of European descent has been in an active campaign to cover over the truth concerning our ancestors. Notice how European-based programming on TV such as “The History Channel” and other like programming ALWAYS portray the Pharoahs as Arab-looking rather than African-looking. Notice how the European-controlled entertainment industry purposefully create so-called Biblical movies that portray Moses, Noah and Jesus as White people. Notice that in the lands within Africa – and in particular Egypt – that it is the man of European descent who is over here tell US who built the might pyramids, who generated the hiergyphs and what they mean, and who built the Sphinx. Why White people? Why are they there? They are not from the lands of Africa. Don’t the Arab-Egyptians know? If THEIR ancestors did all of that why are THEY not telling us these things. But no, we see White people over here in Africa “blocking” and keep the truth concealed about our African ancestors. White people are not here to reveal, they are here to conceal. They are acting as gatekeepers and they have no business  being here. One does not see Africans in the lands of the European digging up dead things do we? So why the interest in Africa? Because the truth about where man had his beginnings is here. It is in the things buried in the ground and covered over by the building of the Aswan Dam that backed up the Nile River at created Lake Nasser. Beneathe Lake Nasser is the Land of Kush (Cush). The evidence was covered over by water.

What bothers me the most is Christianity’s “How dare you question us attitude.” It really bothers this religious system and its indoctrinated membership – many who are Black people – when it is questioned, challenged, investigated and called out. It has been a MAJOR player in drugging us with emotionalism and pushing its modern-day Golden Calf – called the Bible – upon us.

The Bible is not The Word of God. No book can be that. One must exercise faith in an invisible being that was sent into the world and who took the form of a man. That beings visit to earth was very brief. It had to return to the place from which it came. But that being identified itself as The Son of God and The Word of God. This being is not has the White man has fashioned him. Far from it.

This being exists in his true form as someone who cannot be seen. It is a spiritual creature who has asked us to worship the one who sent him as THE Spirit and Creator of all (heavens and earth).

Our authority should NOT be in a book the European man created and TOLD US is the Word of God. Such a statement is made in DEFIANCE to God. The Man of European descent thinks himself to be God. He is the one doing the dictating!

No, the “Authority” MUST be in the one that God Himself “Authorized”, His Son. (Luke 9:35).

Note: The Bible does not say this, God says this.

I will be devoting an article and video on this subject next week. Look for iit.

Good to know that you came out of the false doctrinal association of the Jehovah witness organization, an organization started by a European and led by Europeans.   But from what nation comes salvation?  Let us see what the scriptures, and the epistles state:     I also disagree with ALL of christianity, for ALL of it come from the gentiles!  However, the TRUTH comes from the true Israelites and from no other people.  You see, the word was given to them and understanding remains with them to this day. 
 One major theme of the bible is that the True Nation of Israel, God’s chosen people, are the priest and the teachers of the word of God to the other nations; for they as a nation are chosen by the sovereign God, they are called by his name, Israel, and not by fallible man. 
Psalm 147:19-20 KJV
[19] He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel. [20] He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the Lord …
Romans 3:1-2 KJV
[1] … What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision? [2] Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God. …
Romans 9:4-5 KJV
[4] Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; [5] Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.
And finally: John 4:22. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
Malachi 3:6  I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.  
So you see the Israelites are his priest.  Never ever will you find in the scripture or any where in the bible that God choosing another people to deliver his Word.  That commission belongs to the church, which happens to be the true nation of Israel, God’s holy nation and his peculiar people.  

Now since salvation is of the Jews or the true Israrlites, is not it essential that you know who are the True Israelites?  

Now, taking a close look at the scriptures we learn that the Jewish people are not the True Israelites but in fact are lying (Obadiah, Rev.2:9 and Rev. 3:9).  Another close look at scripture would prove that not all black people are Hamatic and in fact that the descendants of Shem, and most specifically the true Israelites ARE also black. Ask yourself why All the other sons of Jacob failed to recognize their brother Joesph amongst the Egyptians.  Question:  would the prophet Moses, an Israelite, be able to hide in the courts of a black Hamatic Pharaoh when the Pharaoh was trying to kill the Israelite new born males?  Obviously no!  Conclusion: Moses was as black as the Egyptians and the same goes for the Israelites.   
And if you want to know who the Israelites are please take a look at Deut. 28, Lev. 26, Joel, 3, etc.  in fact the bible shows it ALL.  GOD bless you in finding the truth!

I do not view what is called “Scriptures” or the “Epistles” as truth. Reason: Men have had their hands, biases, prejudices and preferences placed in them. They are not unadulterated.

I do not believe salvation is with or belongs to any race among the human family. If that was the case, then the Creator of us all is biased. I do not believe that is the case. Such thinking “humanizes” or Creator. Religion of all sorts have a tendacy of doing that. When they do, God is no longer God, he is pulled down to the level of men and fashioned to think as men do.

Many cling to the idea that a Jew – in God’s eyes –  is a Jew because if ones outward appearance or lineage. Many still cling to this archaic thinking and have not yet come to understand how God reveals who are “true” Jews. As stated by the Apostle Paul (a Jew) at Romans 2:28-29:

“For he is not a Jew who is one on the outside, nor is circumcision that which is on the outside upon the flesh. But he is a Jew who is one on the inside, and circumcision is that of the heart by spirit, and not by a written code. The praise of that one comes, not from men, but from God.”

This is a grand and noble statement to make by the Apostle because it really shows that all of this “grabbing God to be on ones side” is really not how one should be thinking. God has no race.

A Jew (from God’s viewpoint) is any person from any nation among the human family who has had a “greater” circumcision: One of the heart by spirit. Not because of a written code (Mosiac Law). 

The Apostles statement also shows that persons everywhere want to “make a name for themselves” to say “Look, we are the true Jews, not those guys.”

This thinking is not lofty and it is the thinking of men who seek to make one race above another.

God’s thinking is that “anyone” who has this inwardly circumcision is a “Jew as far as I am concerned.”

Praise and admiration is not to come from men “Look we are true Jews” but from God, as he sees the inner condition of a person. The outward appearance is false and never a true measure of what a person is.

Sadly, the world today is still in the mud and it does not look at its human Brothers as God does. It looks primarily at ones “outward” appearance. Something as foolish as ones skin color divides the human family.

How much better would it be if we viewed each other as God does: From the inside.

Until the entire world progresses out of the mud and thinks more like the Creator of us ALL, it will continue to make war and remain divided.

I believe the man of European descent messed up BIG time by usurping something that was not his. He made God in his likeness in every way. Even having God think and reason as he does.

Our African Brothers need not do as they have done: Usurping God for ourselves and making him in our likeness.

The Creator is unseen. It is obvious that he is a God of variety in people. If all of us were literally blind in this world, most of the problems we have with each other would not exist. We would see each other as God does: Blind to ones outward appearance.

Thank you for your comment.

Where are we suppose to get the trruth from?

From Christ who is The Way, The Truth and the Life. One asks the Father for the truth and it is “through” his son that it is provided.

Christ is not dead! He is alive! He is an invisible spirit. Thus, we must access him in faith and not by “the things seen.”

Religious organizations and a book called the Bible can be “seen” and therefore require no faith. Belief in God and Christ requires faith.

Our walk is by faith and not by sight.

Jesus taught at John 4:23-24 that it is not possible to worship God by or through the things seen. Why? Because God is a Spirit! He is invisible. Therefore, he can only be worshiped as a Spirit not as someone seen.

The truth is not with men and it does not belong to man. The truth is with Christ. It is from him that we get it. Not from a book. Not from religious organizations of any other source. (John 14:6)

Ask for it in prayer and expect what you ask for to come to you “through” the same channel that you asked: Christ.

You are a victim of what the “slight of hand” Christianity has told you. Please permit me to show you this. You investigate and decide.

  1. Christ himself – who is the truth – said at John 3:13, “No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man.” I find it very odd that the words Jesus spoke are ignored. Those who claim flesh and blood entered into heaven are essentially saying that Jesus lied.
     
  2. I am not sure what you are seeing in 1 Cor 15:50 but it confirms what Jesus says at John 3:13 that ,”that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God.”
     
  3. Genesis 5:26 says nothing about Enoch or Enoch going to heaven. Perhaps you had another passage in mind.
     
  4. Elijah never went to heaven. Here is why: Because after he trains his sucessor Elisha he is “transferred” to another assignment. This is seen by the fact that Elisha does NOT hold a period of mourning for his master. A number of years AFTER the “windstorm” Elijah is still alive and is seen and active as a prophet because he appears to the King of Judah. (2 Kings 2:11 and 2 Chonicles 21:12-15)

    Because Elijah was seen as he “went up by a whirlwind into heaven,” this does not mean that he went into the spirit realm. Again why not? Because he is later reported as sending a letter of reproof to the king of Judah.

    Airplanes fly in the heavens (sky) but not in the spirit realm. Before humans invented airplanes, God used his own means (a fiery chariot and a whirlwind) to lift Elijah off the ground into the heaven where the birds fly and to transport him to another place.—Compare Genesis 1:6-8, 20.
