So-called Black/Negro/African-American people make up some of the descendants of the ancient Hebrews of Israel. The picture of “Jesus” that is commonly accepted is not accurate and is probably Caesar Bogoria (look it up). The Scriptures and Gospels do not teach Christianity, rather, Christianity mixes pagan traditions and worldly views with the Truth of the Word. Christians, Jewish people, and Muslims all had a hand in the slave trade and the oppression of Hebrews. Christians did the same thing that is done today, part of the Word is used to promote a specific idea and the rest is ignored, to justify and perpetuate slavery in America.
The Hebrews are scattered around the world but those brought to America in ships through the slave trade can be identified by plenty of evidence inside and outside the Word of God. The following will show evidence that the Jewish people are not descendants of the ancient Hebrews of Israel, that the Hebrew slaves are not African, that Hebrews were not Moors or Egyptians, and explain why God chose to do this to His chosen people.
A lot of this is discussed in this video from 2021:
It’s harder to accept the descendants of the transatlantic slaves as Hebrews due to the programming and narratives that people have accepted in America. Another reason it is difficult is because we have been shown a pale skinned group who the world accepts as Israeli’s and Jews. For that reason, let’s start with “who are not the descendants of the Hebrews”.
If I told you the pale skinned Jewish people around the world and in the land of Israel are not the descendants of Israelites or Hebrews then it may not mean much. However, look at this quote from Gamal Abdel Nasser former President of Egypt referring to the pale skinned Jewish people when commenting on the Jewish people being accepted in the region:
“You will never be able to live here in peace, because you left here black and came back white” (1952)
These types of statements create a sense of uncertainty about the origins of the pale skinned Jewish people. I keep calling them pale skinned Jewish people, but they are also known as European Jews or Ashkenazi Jews (Ashkenazi is more accurate but we’ll touch on that later). This uncertainty, however, causes them to feel burdened to prove their links to the ancient Israelites, something that we don’t see from any other group of people.
A writer on The-Scientist.com began her introduction of a new study with, “The majority of Ashkenazi Jews are descended from prehistoric European women…”
In an article on ScienceDaily.com a writer began a discussion of a new DNA study like this, “Despite being one of the most genetically analyzed groups, the origin of European Jews has remained obscure.”
You will find studies and DNA evidence all over the internet that makes claims in any directions you want, whether it’s Ashkenazi Jews being from the middle east or from Europe, so I don’t want to get into the debate on that level. Rather, let’s ask ourselves… why is there so much doubt? Why aren’t the Chinese constantly offering DNA research in an attempt to prove they are descendants of the ancient Chinese people?
While that simmers, let’s turn to our Word and see what the prophets had to say on this subject:
Rev 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
Even our Savior Himself forewarned us of a people who lie and say they are Jews. This is referring to the Ashkenazi Jews.
Ezek 7:24 Wherefore I will bring the worst of the heathen, and they shall possess their houses: I will also make the pomp of the strong to cease; and their holy places shall be defiled.
“Heathen” comes from the same Hebrew word that “Gentile” is translated from(See H1471)
Luke 21:24 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.
What do you know, here we have our Savior making a prophecy that Gentiles would be in the land until their time is up (which we know is right before the end, see Romans 11:25).
The next question would be, who are the Gentiles? Well, the word Gentile, in the Bible is used to describe nations or people of a nation that are not Israel related. Every now and again, however, the Word gets pretty specific. Let’s look at Genesis 10:
Gen 10:1 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.
Gen 10:2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.
Gen 10:3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.
Gen 10:4 And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.
Gen 10:5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.
This gives us the descendants of Japheth. All of which, according to the fifth verse, make up the “isles of the Gentiles.” Notice one of the sons of “Javan” was Ashkenaz… sound familiar? This is exactly what many of the Jewish people call themselves, Ashkenazi Jews. Essential, they are calling themselves “Gentile Jews.” Just so you know I’m not playing Jedi mind tricks, here a snapshot of a Jewish website, below.
But wait… there’s more. So you remember the father of all the Gentiles in the isles? His name was Japheth. Let’s go back a chapter and see what the Word says about him and his brother Shem.
Gen 9:26 And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
Gen 9:27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
Here, Noah blessed Shem after cursing Canaan because of his father’s, Ham’s, inappropriate actions. Notice how Noah says Japheth will “dwell in the tents of Shem.” Shem is the father of the Hebrews. So, this is prophecy, saying Japheth (or his descendants) will live in the “tents” of Shem (or his descendants).
There’s still more… Okay so let’s take a closer look at Genesis 9:27. See the Word “enlarge” in the KJV? The Hebrew word that “enlarge” was translated from is “pathah.” This word was translated a total of 28 times in the KJV. Here’s the breakdown: it was translated as entice (10x), deceive (8x), persuade (4x), flatter (2x), allure (1x), silly one (1x), silly (1x), enlarge (1x). Notice how all of these words have related meanings except one… enlarge. Which happens to be the one used in Genesis 9:27. What if we switched “enlarge” out for “entice” in this verse. It would read:
God shall [entice] Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
These are just a few verses out of the Bible but there are more that, when taken all together, pretty clearly tell us that God would cause Gentiles would possess the land of Israel until the end. The next question would be, why would God want to put Gentiles in the Land and remove His own Chosen Seed?
Well, God answers that question time and time again through Scripture, notably, in Deuteronomy.
Deut 32:21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
Since we rejected God, He rejected us (us being Hebrews of Israel and Judah). Before we were even brought into the land of Israel after being delivered out of the land of bondage, called Egypt. We were warned and told what would happen to us if we did not remain faithful to the blessings that God gave us and His calling. In Deuteronomy chapter 28 — which we’ll go in more detail shortly — the Most High gets pretty specific about the ramifications of rebellion.
You’re probably thinking, .o0 (Sure, there’s evidence that the Jewish people are not descendants of the ancient Israelites but where is the proof of who the descendants of the Hebrews of ancient Israel ARE?) Well, let’s start with skin color.
For skin color, we’ll turn to archaeology first. I the following from Realhistoryww.com:
“The earliest authentic pictures of real Hebrews that we have, date back to before Christ. They are Assyrian relief’s showing Hebrews, and others that they conquered, in pictorial scenes detailing the battles fought, with associated text. These relief’s decorated Assyrian palaces, and were no doubt used to gloat over their conquest of the Hebrews and others. Here we are using pictures of: Assyrian King Shalmaneser IIIs “Black Obelisk” (858 B.C.). Assyrian king Tiglath-pilesar III’s relief’s of his conquest of a city near the Sea of Galilee (730 B.C.). Assyrian King Sennacherib’s relief’s of the conquest of the Judean City of Lachish (701 B.C.). The four pictures below, are from those Assyrian relief’s. (These relief’s are stored in the British Museum, London England).
Even the Word describes the skin color of Israelites as dark [Jeremiah 8:18-21, Lamentations 4:6-9, Songs of Solomon 1:1-5, Job 30:28-30]. One of the most telling places is in Genesis where the Hebrews were thought to be ancient Egyptians [Genesis 50:11]. It’s pretty well established that the ancient Egyptians were a dark skinned people, although some still resist this so let’s talk about ancient Egypt a bit.
In the KJV Egypt is translated from the Hebrew word “Mizraim” — we’ll get into the meaning of that shortly — nevertheless, the name Egypt is derived from Greek but is not the name that the land was originally called. It was originally known as Kmt (or Kemet) meaning “land of black.” The meaning is actually similar and related to the name of the father of Kemet whose name in our Bible is “Ham,” meaning “burnt.” Ham was the father of Mizraim which became Kemet/Egypt and also the father of Cush which actually means “black.” The people of Cush are know today as Ethiopians. In fact, most of Ham’s descendants make up the land of Africa. Kemet became the most powerful nation out of Ham’s descendants, so much so the Word calls Egypt “the land of Ham” [Psalm 105:23, 27; Psalm 106:22]. I make these points to show that Ham begot dark skinned people and the orginal people of Kemet/Egypt were included.
These facts make it quite obvious the complexion of the Hebrews were dark. Especially when Hebrews, even in the New Testament, were confused with Egyptians [Acts 21:38]. Hebrews were also confuses with Egyptians outside of the Bible. Here is a quote from a historian named Tacitus as he speculated about the origins of our fathers:
“Some say that the Jews were fugitives from the island of Crete, who settled on the nearest coast of Africa about the time when Saturn was driven from his throne by the power of Jupiter. Evidence of this is sought in the name. There is a famous mountain in Crete called Ida; the neighboring tribe, the Idaei, came to be called Judaei by a barbarous lengthening of the national name. Others assert that in the reign of Isis the overflowing population of Egypt, led by Hierosolymus and Judas, discharged itself into the neighboring countries. Many, again, say that they were a race of Ethiopian origin, who in the time of king Cepheus were driven by fear and hatred of their neighbors to seek a new dwelling-place.”
Notice that he even confused our people with Ethiopians! I assure you, the Hebrews are and were dark skinned people. As you can see, not much has changed. We are still confused with Africans today. Many of the so called “black conscious movement” would contest that we are all Egyptians and everything started in Egypt. We are all sons of Noah but our bloodlines trace back to different kindreds and nations. We are all one race [Acts 17:26] and are sons of Adam but we are not all of the same people groups due to the diversity that Noah produced after the flood.
Still, the question remains: even if the Jewish people are not descendants of Hebrews and the ancient Israelites were dark skinned, how do we know the slaves that were brought from Africa were Hebrew and not African?
To answer that, let’s go back to what we read earlier, in Luke 21:24, about how the people of Judah would be killed or taken captive into all nations. After the destruction of the temple in 70 AD, which was very well documented in the works of Flavius Josephus, Romans took those of our people captive that they didn’t kill yet still many of our fathers escaped into Africa. This is a quote from page 84 of the book From Babylon to Timbuktu:
“In the year 65 B.C. the Roman armies under General
Pompey captured Jerusalem. In 70 A.D. General Vespasian
and his son, Titus put an end to the Jewish state, with great
slaughter. During the period of the military governors of
Palestine, many outrages and atrocities were committed
against the residue of the people. During the period from
Pompey to Julius, it has been estimated that over 1,000,000
Jews fled into Africa, fleeing from Roman persecution and
slavery. The slave markets were full of black Jewish slaves.”
This claim shouldn’t be hard to believe for anyone who knows the history of our people as recorded in the Scriptures. Israel often went deeper into Africa to escape troubles [1 Kings 11:40, Jeremiah 41:17; 43:3-7, Matthew 2:13]. There were historians, Eugène Albertini and Marcel Simon, who documented the traditions of our people being practiced in Africa at the end of the 1st century — that’s during and just after the destruction of Jerusalem.
This led to the “slave markets [being] full of black Jewish slaves” as related in the book From Babylon to Timbuktu. The Transatlantic Slave Trade, in which Hebrews became the primary target and shipped to America, stemmed from the Islamic Slave Trade that was practiced during the time of the so-called prophet Muhammed and founder of Islam. Islam spread rapidly through Africa and many kingdoms and dominions were established with Islamic rulers. One of the benefits of converting to Islam was avoiding war. An ancient Islamic scholar who lived from 1263 to 1328 commented on this fact, saying, “The root of the beginning of slavery is prisoners of war; the bounties have become lawful to the nation of Muhammad.” He also wrote, “Slavery is justified because of the war itself; however, it is not permissible to enslave a free Muslim. It is lawful to kill the infidel or to enslave him, and it also makes it lawful to take his offspring into captivity.”
Because of this, non-Muslims in Africa were captured and enslaved if they were not killed. The African Muslims, also known as Moors, even took Europeans as slaves for a time because they were Christians and would not convert to Islam. Christian Europeans would in turn enslave Moors when they captured Muslims during their battles. In fact, Christopher Columbus was aided by a Moor named Pedro Alonso Niño whose mother was a slave in Spain. After Columbus’ findings, a European Christian named John Hawkins sought to make a profit by trading slaves. He had a ship named “Jesus of Lubeck” which he used to transport slaves that he says he obtained “partly by the sword and partly by other means” into the Americas to trade with the Spaniards. Others realized Hawkins discovered a black gold mine. While Hawkins captured many of his slaves by battle with Moors, later European slave traders found it more profitable to trade goods with the Moors for their slaves. Valentim Fernandes even noted about trading alcohol when commenting on a group with Muslims in it saying, they were “drunkards who derive great pleasure from our wine.” This is when Hebrews who would not convert to Islam would have begun to be traded; before this many of the slaves from Africa were Moors who were taken by Christians as prisoners of war. But when rum that came from the Americas was used, along with other alcoholic beverages, to obtain slaves the Moors began to trade Hebrew prisoners for goods from the Europeans. Just as it was prophesied by Joel.
Joel 3:3 And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.
However, not all of the Muslim slave traders were interested in alcohol which allowed them to make better deals for the non-muslim slaves. A writer, Lynn Pan, described that Northern parts of Africa were of the Muslim areas that were not interested in trading alcohol. One of the countries in the North of Africa that had a very profitable slave market was Morocco. Here’s a part of a New York Times article from 1886:
Mogador is in Morocco and just south was another town in Morocco that generated large amounts of revenue from its slave market. At the end of the article the writer asks a question:
The writer may not have known at that time but history has revealed that Great Britain had agreements with Morocco which caused them to overlook what would otherwise be seen as atrocities. The United States had an interesting agreement with Morocco as well. Agreements with Morocco led to US laws that protect Moors. There are some that promote the idea that all (or most) of the “black” people in America are Moors but the Sundry Act of 1790 proves that “Negros” and Moors were viewed separately. This Act stated that Moors were to be governed as citizens and not like Negro slaves. Due to the benefits of being a Moor in America, “Negros” who were actually Hebrews, would call themselves Moors to potentially be relieved of the legal detriments of being a “Negro.”
Be clear, Moors sold Hebrews into slavery in America. We are not Moors!
The names of the slaves that were brought into North America were recorded on many occasions. These records give us another insight into the ethnicity of the slaves that were taken from Africa. A common feature in Hebrew names was has the short version of the Most High’s name [Psalm 68:4], Yah, as a part of their name. For example, Jeremiah (Jermi-Yah), Elijah (Eli-Yah), Nehemiah (Nehemi-Yah), Isaiah (Isa-Yah) to name a few. If you go to and perform a query for the names with “yah” in them, you will find names like: Beneyah, Enyah, Ahkeyah, ect.
Try it for yourself, click here.
Another fun fact, the Hebrew slaves brought from Africa passed down a song, Kum Ba Yah. We were calling on the Most High God in our distress in the form of song which later was changed to a campfire song. Kumbya, my Lord… Kumbaya.
For anyone who believes the Word, the best evidence for the true Hebrews is in the Word itself. In Deuteronomy 28, God details what would happen if our fathers turned from his way.
Deut 28:45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:
Deut 28:46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.
Notice that the Most High told us these curses would be on us for a “sign.” These are the best evidence for discovering the Hebrew people. We have to ask ourselves, what group of people can lay claim to these curses more so than the so called black people brought to the Americas?
You can find a pretty good breakdown of many of the verses here.
Once you read Deuteronomy 28 with the information you have seen here in mind, I’m sure you will be amazed. Here is one verse that I’d like to highlight:
Deut 28:68 And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.
Is there any other group of people that were transferred by ship into bondage where they were sold to their enemies? Notice how it says “back to Egypt” here. Remember we discussed Egypt earlier and it came from the Hebrew word Mizraim? Well, the meaning of that word’s root in Hebrew means to be confined or trapped. Mizraim, the name we gave the Egyptians, actually means bondage. We are the only people who were taken into bondage in ships. The only people that can lay claim to the curses that Yah promised to our father’s disobedience.
I will leave you with this:
Lev 26:40 If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me;
Lev 26:41 And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:
Lev 26:42 Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.
Peace, saints! Praise Yah!
