Who Are The Israelites?
WHO ARE THE ISRAELITES?
By Dr. Wesley A. Swift
Greetings Christian Americans: There are many great truths in the Scriptures which will help you to understand the problems which we are facing nationally and internationally in the world today. A great many of these great truths have never been taught from the pulpits, in fact, many of the clergy have never taken time to go into the background of archeology and anthropology to come up with the answers.
Among these many truths which are contained in the Scriptures are the truths that among the three great Races of the world which we have today are the Caucasian Race, Asiatic Race and the Negroid Race. Their histories and their backgrounds, and their points of origin are entirely different.
We are living in the day when Science, through the use of new discoveries such as the use of Radio Carbon Dating is able to determine the time element of many of the things which they find furniture and pieces of wood and living matter and bones, etc.
And out of the discoveries already made by Science, well established beyond question as to their accuracy, along with archeological evidence that some of the Races have had peoples existing here for thousands upon thousands of years. There have been thousands of years of Asiatic history, there are thousands of years, of Negro history. In fact, even the White Race, the Adamic Race, has approximately 7400 years of history, that can be confirmed with the inter dispersion of events as it relates to other existing races.
The most significant thing is that this is not in controversy, but is established by the content of the Scriptures, The Scriptures established the beginning of the Adamic Race with a Special Ministry. In fact, God told Adam to have dominion over the earth in the day when He placed him here. He told him to have dominion over "all the beasts of the field." We do not have time to go into all this subject today, but all "the beasts of the field" were not in the animal kingdom, as you will remember when God told Moses on the mountain that "none of the beasts or the men" were to place "their hands" upon the holy mountain the day the Law was given, and of course you and I know that animals do not have "hands" that they could place upon the mountain.
And you remember that when Jonah was sent to Nineveh, that God told him to tell the peoples of Nineveh that if the "men and beasts" of the city of Nineveh would put on sackcloth and ashes, and repent of their evil doings, and call on the Most High God to forgive them of their transgressions, and then He would save Nineveh. And eventually, after of course, the round-about route that Jonah took, he went to Nineveh. And it tells us that both the "beasts and the men" put on sackcloth ' and they a] I cried out and "entreated the Lord with prayer." Now these "beasts" are two-legged ones and it was not an attempt to downgrade them, it was merely a distinction in their origin and creation, for "beast kingdoms" are created beings with soul consciousness, but do not have the "Spirit". or the "Celestial Life" of the Most High God as their Spiritual intelligence. They are not "begotten" in the heavens "of the Spirit."
You and as the children of God, are the offspring of the Heavenly Father, begotten in the Spirit before the world was framed.
We are the children He foreknew and did predetermine that we were going to conform His image in the earth.
There were creations in their various stages created here in the earth and in other parts of the universe. Much to be said about this at other times. Even specific groups in the earth are subject for your investigation and mine.
One of the most important subjects of course in the Scriptures is the subject that the Book of Romans asks in a single, question, when in this passage the Apostle Paul said, "Who are the Israelites?" Now some one would say, "Now that's an easy question to answer." Well, maybe your minister never answered that question-maybe it has never been discussed in your church. But it is a most important thing that you and I know who the Israelites are. It is just as important that you know who the Israelites are, as it is for you to know that the Adamic Race is the White Race or to know that in the days of the flood in Noah's time, it did not cover the "whole earth," but covered all "that place," for the word there for "the earth" was eratz meaning "that place." Cain uses the same word when he was driven out of the garden and said, "I was driven off of the face of the earth"-that's the translator's word, originally it was "eratz," which means "all that place."
So also we know that Noah's three sons Ham, Shem and Seth were all White Men, as "kind begets like kind," seed having life in itself. They were their varied ways, some were absorbed by the processes of intermixture and mongrelization. The Shemites, or Shemitic peoples, preserved their racial self-respect a reason why today all the great nations of the White Race have descended from Shem. Truly, you know, there is no more mistaken word than the word "antiSemite"-White men are not against White men, so you would have to be against all White men to be truly an "anti-Shemite. "
In the interest of "Who are the Israelites?" the Scriptures tell me in the 9th Chapter of Romans, the 4th Verse, that "to them pertains the adoption." There is a Greek word "Huiothesia," meaning "positioning of sons" in the earth, the timing of their birth, and their positioning of them in their family. This is a part of the fore-knowledge in the purpose of God, and to them belongs the "Glory of God," and the "Covenants," and "the giving of the Law," and "the service of God," and "the Promises."
Doesn't look like there is much left in this Bible for anybody unless they belong to this group of people known as "Israelites" because almost the whole Book is written about them, and also all the New Testament is written to them. They have all "the Promises," they have the "Laws of God," they have "the Covenants of God"- they get "the Glory of God." So in this instance I think it is most important that you and I have an answer to this question.
This might be disturbing to a Christian if he did not also have another statement the Apostle makes in the 3rd Chapter, in the 29th verse. He said: "if ye are Christ's then are ye are Abraham's seed." I know you have heard evangelists tell you simply that when a man accepts the fact that Jesus is the Christ, that automatically makes him a Spiritual Israelite. Well there might be some truth to that, he is an Israelite who is now Spiritually enlightened concerning who he is and who Christ is. But let me assure you this, the reason why he can perceive and understand is because the Spiritual Seed within him has been quickened by the Father according to His Covenant. "if ye be Christ's." Notice that this is a matter of possession there is a great difference between "being Christ's," and standing on the sidelines and believing "about Christ." It did not say "if you believe about Christ" it said, "if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise,"
You know Jesus said in the Book of Matthew, "I have come for the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel." He was talking to the Jews on Solomon's porch and He said: "Ye believe not because ye are not my sheep, as I said unto you." So very apparently the Jews of Jerusalem were not considered Israelites by Jesus who said He "came for the lost sheep of the house of Israel."
Of course, they did not accept Him and He did not say they belonged to Him. He said: "All the Father giveth me shall come, and he that comes I will in no wise cast out." But He said: "I am from above and ye are from beneath," "I am from the heavens and you are of the earth."
But the children of the "House of Israel", were supposed to be "Celestial children" whom He fore knew before the foundation of the world," and they were "predestined" or pre-determined they would conform to the image of the Son. "The people that He promised that "I will be the Lamb of God, slain before the foundation of the world, to restore you, to give you back the Eternal Life which you possessed in the Spirit, to clothe you with "the Glory" which I started out your father Adam with. So you who are the "children of God" after the Spirit say, "Our Father which art in heaven." And we say, "We have our father Adam after the flesh."
If you remember that Adam is referred to as the "First Adam" naturally, the word "Adam" is the name for the White Race, or White Man. The word "Enosh" in the Hebrew means "beings," and is also translated "men." But where it is "Adam" it is talking about the White Race. Where it is "Enosh" it is talking about BEINGS.
Christ is referred to by Paul the Apostle as the "Second Adam, and He was the "Begotten Issue," the Incarnate Fullness of God dwelling bodily in the earth. So also this Race with Spiritual Seed, the "Holy Seed" that Ezra talks about, the children. of the Eternal God with whom God made His Covenants.
And selecting one man, who in faith and determination to follow God, had activated his faith by obedience, He called Abraham out of Ur of the land of the Chaldees, lest his seed be integrated by the inter-mixing of the peoples of the site of ancient Ur of the Chaldees, the city of Nimrod, God tells him to get out of the land of Ur of the Chaldees, and then He says: "This is my covenant with you. I Almighty God, have ordered you to walk before me, and be thou perfect. And I am going to make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly." And He said: "Behold, my covenant is with thee. Thou shalt be a father of many nations." He said: in the 7th Verse, 17th Chapter of Genesis: "And I will establish my covenants between me and thee, and thy seed after thee in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto them, and to thy seed after thee. 11 And everlasting covenant with the offspring of Abraham, the purest selected strain of the White Race, who was to take a seed from among his people, and at no time took for himself a "gentile" or "heathen" bride.
Frankly, all through the background of Scripture, God talks about His covenant with Abraham, and the Old Testament is filled with it. The Book of Jeremiah starts, in the 31st Chapter, "Behold" the days come, saith the Lord, when I make a New Covenant with the House of Israel, and with the House of Judah." And this is a very new covenant because He said: : "I am going to put my Law in their inward parts. and I am going to write it in their hearts. And I will be their God and they shall be my people."
Now, therefore, if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise." What "promise" is He talking about? Why the promise He made to Abraham, which over in the 3rd chapter of Galatians, in the 16th Verse, "Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made." And the 15th verse said: "The law or no other covenant that came thereafter could put a condition upon it, or disannul that promise."
If you today are a White Christian ye are the seed of Abraham you are the Israel of God. That is why you are a have nation today that is why you have technological blessing, Divine Guidance and Leadership that is why the United States of America, with the "two great out stretched wings of the eagle," carries forward its mighty destination Israel nation, because "'ye are Abraham's seed and heirs according to this promise."
