Why I Believe I’m Hebrew

Bethink Themselves

Why I Believe I’m Hebrew

I have always loved being “black”. Although I was aware of the tremendous struggles our people have face and continue to face; I was always able to also see our beauty and strengths.

My father took time and taught me about our people and the amazing things we have accomplished despite the great hostility against us worldwide. He showed me documentaries and talked to me for hours, to ensure that I was confident in who we are and who I am. So, I never really had any issue with being black.

However, when I was in grade school, I remember hating the study of American history. Of course, there are many topics that comprise the study of U.S. history, the part that stung like a bee for me was the history of slavery.

I felt such shame listening to/reading about whites enslaving us and all that we endured. Seeing the pictures in the books of us in the fields, on the auction blocks, bearing the scars of their whip on our backs, made me feel such shame. What made it especially bad was the fact that I was usually sitting in predominately “white” classrooms as the shame of our place in American history was laid out.

Fast forward to me being married and becoming a mother. God first blessed us with three amazing sons. I loved my boys and wanted the best for them.

Before we had children, we had decided to homeschool.As the boys grew and we started teaching them more and more information, I avoided U.S. history altogether. Keep in mind that they were barely kindergarten age at this point. I read a lot to them an we discussed many deep topics.

But I totally refused to discuss our role in U.S. history or read any books about it to them. I refused to tell my sons that we were was slaves. When I taught them about slavery, I wanted to come armed with information to present on our history before we were put on those ships. So, I waited. I didn’t even know what I was waiting for, but I waited.

In 2016 my husband came to me and told me he believed we were the Hebrews of the bible. It felt like a punch in the gut. Shock and disbelief were my initially reactions. WHAT?! WHAT?! WHAAAAAT?!!!!!!!!

He discussed it with me, told me about the information he found, told me that there were many other people who believed the same thing. He told me that many people during the reconstruction era and during the civil rights movements also believed this. He explained to me that the information was not new, it is just methodically and intentionally suppressed.

We took weeks and watched videos, read documents and most importantly read Scriptures that supported the findings. The information shook the core of everything I ever thought I was, and of who I knew “us” to be. How could I have gone from kindergarten through undergrad and never heard this. How could I have grown up in church my entire life and never heard this come over the pulpit?

It took months for me to unpack all of my emotions, and to reconcile the truth from what I had been told was the truth. Everything felt different. Who I thought I was felt different, who I thought my sons were felt different, how I viewed my husband felt different, and how I saw God was different too.

I initially had feelings of distrust towards the entire system that had hid this from me. But soon that turned into understanding of my position and response… prayer for the deliverance of Jacob, repentance of our sins of disobedience, repentance for idolatry and turning away from God, and repentance for not receiving His Son (pre-slavery), and prayer & intercession on behalf of the people of Israel, that all Israel would be saved.

As a result of this understanding, I now had pre-slavery history to present to my sons BEFORE I told them we were slaves in America. Now I could tell them why we ended up slaves. We rebelled against the Most High God.

These are key scriptures/facts that proved African Americans and some of the African diaspora who have been scattered over the face of the earth are the true Hebrews of the bible:

-We were brought to America and many other nations on ships Deuteronomy 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.

Hebrews were slaves in Egypt for 400 years. The bible says that if Israel turned from the commandments of God, they would be taken back to Egypt on ships.

The geographic location of Israel is VERY close to Egypt. There is a sea that separates the two countries, but there is also a path that can be traveled by land.

No need for ships. God was referring to enslavement in a far away place, which is why He told them they would see the path he gave them NO MORE.

White Jews were never enslaved, and never carried away in enslavement on ships anywhere.

-We are imprisoned at high rates Isaiah 42:22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore. 23 Who among you will give ear to this? who will hearken and hear for the time to come? 24 Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the Lord, he against whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law. 25 Therefore he hath poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle: and it hath set him on fire round about, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart.

-The children of slaves were taken from them and sold Deuteronomy 28:32 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long; and there shall be no might in thine hand.

-We have been killed mercilessly Deuteronomy 28:65 And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the Lord shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind: 66 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life.

-People hate us and curse us all over the world 1 Kings 9:6 But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children, and will not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them: 7 Then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house, which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people: 8 And at this house, which is high, every one that passeth by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss; and they shall say, Why hath the Lord done thus unto this land, and to this house?

– In America, Hebrews (African Americans) are lower than immigrants Deuteronomy 28:42 All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume. 43 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. 44 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.

White Ashkenazi Jews have faced persecution. But one thing everyone knows about them, in general, they have great wealth all over the earth. They lend, and others borrow. How can this Scripture be about them? It is not. Blacks are the Hebrews of the bible. The chosen ones, punished by God for rejecting Him, His commandments, His Son.

– Masters raped slave women, we built this country, yet have nothing to show for it Deuteronomy 28:30 Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof.
