Could You Be An Israelite And Not Know It?
Could You Be An Israelite And Not Know It?
“Here is a paradox, a paradox, a most ingenious paradox: an anthropological fact, many Christians may have much more Hebrew-Israelite blood in their veins than most of their Jewish neighbors.” (What Price Israel, by Alfred M. Lilienthal, (Chicago: Henry Regnery Company, 1953; p. 223)
If you will think about, seriously think about it, there could not possibly be more truth than this. If so, it would mean that the majority of Christendom and the rest of society has misidentified the people most prominent in the Bible. If Israel has been misidentified there is no doubt that major errors in doctrinal interpretation and application of Biblical prophecy have been made!
There are a variety of stories regarding the Israelites and their modern day identity. It is not the purpose of this study to relate other of those stories. Instead, it will, if you will listen, furnish you with the REST OF THE STORY, the true story regarding Israel’s modern identity, the one found in the Scriptures and verified by archaeology and history; a story not usually told by most Judeo-Christian preachers.
“Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD. THEREFORE THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL AGAINST THE PASTORS THAT FEED MY PEOPLE; YE HAVE SCATTERED MY FLOCK, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD.” (Jeremiah 23:1-2)
God says further about these lying, deceiving ministers, priests, pastors and etc.;
“For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.” (Isaiah 9:16)
“THE (rulers) PROPHETS PROPHESY FALSELY, and the priests (Christian priests, ministers, and etc) bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?” (Jeremiah 5:31)
Spiritual Israel: A large segment of Judeo Christianity is being taught that God no longer has a plan for PHYSICAL ISRAEL under the New Covenant, and that He is now working with only a SPIRITUAL Israel. For example, in the January-February 1991 issue of The Last Trump, Dr. Ed Moore claimed:
“Hence, we can begin to see that being the children of Abraham (today under the New Covenant) has nothing to do with race.” (Dr. Ed Moore, The Last Trump (January/February, 1991; p. 7)
In his book Clouds Over America, Leonard C. Lee concluded:
“Since God rejected the Israelites as a nation, we can look for the fulfillment of His purposes only in (a) spiritual Israel...The (physical) Israelites have now passed off the stage of action...” (Leonard C. Lee, Clouds Over America (Washington: Review and Herald Publishing Association, 1948; p. 71)
In essence, these men and other like them, are proclaiming that God has no NEW COVENANT plan for physical Israel. Yet, contrast these statements with what writer of Hebrews wrote:
“Behold, days are coming, says Yahweh (Where the Tetragrammaton has been incorrectly substituted with the words ‘Lord’ or ‘God’ in either the old Testament or in the New Testament where the Old Testament is quoted, these passages have been corrected by inserting the word Yahweh as should have been done by the English translators) when I WILL EFFECT A NEW COVENANT WITH THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL AND WITH THE HOUSE OF JUDAH...” (Hebrews 8:8)
Some people attempt to spiritualize this passage of Scripture to fit their preconceived teachings and ideas, the Israelites CANNOT BE SPIRITUALIZED in this or any other verse for three reasons:
1). FIRST: The context will not allow it. The very next verse dictates as to whether the Israelites spoken of in verse eight are to be deemed as being either physical or spiritual:
“Not like the (Mosaic) covenant which I made with THEIR (the House of Israel and the House of Judah) FATHERS ON THE DAY WHEN I TOOK THEM BY THE HAND TO LEAD THEM OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT...” (Hebrews 8:9)
The people described in this passage, with whom the New Covenant was and is being made, are clearly the PHYSICAL descendants of the PHYSICAL PEOPLE whom Moses led out of Egypt.
2). SECOND: The reason Israel cannot be spiritualized is illustrated by the Old Testament passage from which Hebrew 8:8-12 is quoted. The author of Hebrews quoted the Prophet Jeremiah, and Jeremiah continued with the following:
“Thus says Yahweh, who gives the sun for light by day, and the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night...IF THIS FIXED ORDER DEPARTS FROM BEFORE ME...THEN THE OFFSPRING OF ISRAEL ALSO SHALL CEASE FROM BEING A NATION BEFORE ME FOREVER. Thus says Yahweh, IF THE HEAVENS ABOVE CAN BE MEASURED, AND THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH SEARCHED OUT BELOW, THEN I WILL ALSO CAST OFF THE OFFSPRING OF ISRAEL...” (Jeremiah 31:35-37)
Since the fixed order of the sun, moon and stars has not departed, and since the heavens have not been measured, and the depths of the earth searched out below, then it is quite apparent that God is still working with the PHYSICAL descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. If not, then God has lied.
THIRD: The third reason the Israelites in Hebrews 8:8 cannot be spiritualized is because of the second witness found in Romans where the Apostle Paul declared:
“For I could wish that I myself were accursed, separated from (the) Christ for the sake of my brethren MY KINSMEN ACCORDING TO THE FLESH, WHO ARE ISRAELITES, TO WHOM BELONGS...THE COVENANTS...” (Romans 9:3-4)
No matter what the antichrists and the Judeo-Christian priests of Baal that inhabit the pulpits of the Whore Houses of America called Churches God said:
“You (Israel) only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.” (Amos 3:2)
Not only do the previous three passages specifically declare that God made His New Covenant with ISRAELITES, PHYSICAL ISRAELITES, but there are many more New Testament passages which reveal that God continues to work with the physical nation of Israel to this day. (Matthew 1:21; 2:6; 10:6; 15:24; Luke 1:16, 33, 54-55, 68, 72-73, 77; 19:9-10; 22:30; Acts 1:6; 5:31; 13:23-24; Romans 4:1; 11:1-2; James 1:1; Revelation 7:3-8; 21:10-12)
There can be no question that God, under the New Covenant, has a plan for PHYSICAL ISRAEL (at least with the remnant who have, and are being redeemed by the atoning sacrifice of Yahshua. (Yahshua, the Hebrew pronunciation of our Savior’s name, is the preferred expression used in this tract, as it is believed to be the more accurate rendition; the Christ). This being the case, it behooves Christianity to correctly identify the true descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Todays Jews: Nearly all of Christendom is being taught that today’s “Jews” represent Israel. Yet, how many of those same people have ever been taught that the Bible warns us of Israelite impostors? That’s right NON-ISRAELITES who fallaciously claim to be ISRAELITES:
“I know...THE BLASPHEMY BY THOSE WHO SAY THEY ARE JEWS (i.e., Judahites, thus Israelites) AND ARE NOT, BUT ARE A SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN.” (Revelation 2:9; 3:9)
Also, how many Christians have been told that there is actually a people who admit to being these imposters? For example, the 1980 Jewish Almanac’s first chapter entitled “Identity Crisis,” begins with the following admission:
“Strictly speaking, it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an ‘Israelite’ or a ‘Hebrew.’” (The Jewish Almanac, Compiled and Edited by Richard Siegal and Carl Rheins (New York: Bantam Books, 1980; p. 71)
This is confirmed by several other Jewish sources and individual Jews. (The Jewish Encyclopedia (1905); The Standard Jewish Encyclopedia (1966); Nathan M. Pollock, Professor of Medieval Jewish History of Tel Aviv; Bernard Lazare; Robert Quillan; Dr. Benjamin Freedman; Arthur Koestler; James Yaffe; Paul Meyer; Alfred M. Lilienthal, Jr) Dr. Oscar Levy went so far as to declare:
“And are not they (today’s Jews) the inventors of the Chosen People myth?” (Dr. Oscar Levy, preface, The World Significance of the Russian Revolution, George Pitt Rivers (Oxford, England: Basil Blackwell, 1920; p. vi)
Why are our Israel People and the American public been told that over 90 percent of the people known as “Jews” are NOT DESCENDANTS OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB? History reveals they are actually descendants of the Turkish, Mongolian Khazar tribes which roamed the steppes of southern Russia and who adopted the religion of Judaism between the 7th and 9th centuries. Today, the Khazars are known as “Jew” not because of race, but because of Religion. (Arthur Koester, The Thirteenth Tribe (New York: Random House, Inc., 1976)
As stated, the Bible declares that there would be Israelite imposters. These imposters have inadvertently or deliberately identified themselves by their own writings. Therefore, if “they, meaning the Jews” are not true Israel, then someone else must be!
True Israel: God provided Scriptural clues for identifying Israel of old. There is no debate that ancient Israel fulfilled most of these marks and was identified by them. But even more exciting is the fact that these very same features help us to identify Israel today! Listed below are fifteen national geographical and spiritual aspects out of more than a hundred of Scriptural clues that positively identify Israel. Ask yourself, what modern day people do they identify?
1). Israel was to become a great and mighty nation. (Genesis 12:1-3)
2). Israel was to become a vast multitude of people. (Genesis 22:17)
3). Israel was to form a multitude of nations. (Genesis 17:4-6)
4). Israel was to rule over other nations. (Deuteronomy 15:60
5). Israel was to be a blessing to all nations. (Genesis 22:18)
6). Israel was to have a new home, other than Canaan Land. (2 Samuel 7:10; 1 Chronicles 17:9; Jeremiah 3:18; 12:15; 16:13-15; 23:3-8; 50:17; Isaiah 14:1; Ezekiel 34:13; 37:21; 39:22-29; Amos 2:15)
7). Israel’s new land was to be inhabited by people gathered from many nations. (Ezekiel 38:8)
8). Israel was to have a land of unwalled villages, without walls, bars or gates. (Ezekiel 38:11)
9). Israel was to have a land of great agricultural wealth. (Deuteronomy 28:8-11)
10). Israel’s land was described as being the “camp of the saints.” (Revelation20:7-9)
11). Israel was to carry the gospel to all the world. (Isaiah 49:3-6; Matthew 24:14; 26:13; Mark 14:9; 16:15)
12). Israel was to be the only nation given God’s Law. (Psalm 49:3-6)
13). Israel was to be blind for the most part to her identity. (Isaiah 42:16-19)
14). Israel was to be called by a new name. (Isaiah 62:1-2)
There are a number of our people who have been taught the lie that the Bible is for all the different races and people on earth; yet the Bible clearly says:
“THIS IS THE BOOK OF THE GENERATIONS OF ADAM (meaning the book of Adam’s race). In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him.” (Genesis 5:1)
If Israel exists today, as she must, there is only one people whom all these identifying marks fit; and they certainly do not represent the modern day “Jews”
They do however, describe perfectly the White Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Nordic, Celtic peoples; the multitude of nations who became a great nation, with a new home, a new religion, and who have blessed the world with numerous blessings.
Indeed, Alfred Lilienthal (a Jew) understood what most Germanic-Saxons do not. Many of our Israel people have much more Hebrew-ISRAELITE blood in our veins than do the Jews who have none.
The Prophet Isaiah spoke of a time in the future when; “And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken. The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly.” (Isaiah 32:3-4)
In other words it says in plain English “the eyes of those who see will not be blinded, and the ears of those who hear will listen, and the mind of the hasty will discern truth.”
It is the purpose of this short study to assist in the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy in regard to the true Identity of Israel. We have very briefly demonstrated and provided evidence for the following three facts:
1). God HAS A NEW COVENANT plan for PHYSICAL Israel today.
2). Today’s “Jews” ARE NOT ISRAELITES, BUT ARE INSTEAD IMPOSTORS.
3). The Celto-Saxon peoples ARE THE ISRAELITES, the true descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
You now have the rest of the story, the true story concerning Israel’s mo0der day identity; it is up to you what you do with it. It is our prayer that Isaiah’s prophecy will be fulfilled in you.
