RE: Brit-Am Now no. 1123
#5. Remark Concerning  Israelite racial Mixing and Brit-Am Comment

Hello, Yair. 

I want to add some comments to those of Tessa and yourself, here, concerning racial mixtures and letting the All Mighty decide. 
Joseph was already "racially" mixed even before his descendants blossomed into tribal and then national status.  Joseph married an Egyptian woman.  Ruth the Moabitess who married Boaz was the great grandmother of David.  Did God not bless their racially mixed descendants with blessings of promise to Israel?

And for all the Christians receiving your newsletters, you will find that the Canaanite harlot Rahab of Jericho was an ancestress of both David and Jesus Christ. Follow the genealogies down and see.  Believe me, God is nowhere near the racist some of the writers and believers of the Bible were and are.  There is, in fact, no such thing as race, in the context which we find it used so often today.  There is only one race, the human race.  All that we have been taught about race is false.  There are no races within that one human race; only families, grown up.  Why else does the Bible have God saying "Have you not considered what these people have spoken, saying 'The two families which the Lord has chosen, He as also cast them off'?"  Jer. 33:34.
And to Abraham: "...And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed."

Racism is nothing but contempt for families other than ones own.  And it seems that the more inbred a family is, the greater that trait becomes.  Could this be part of the reason God told Abraham to get up and move away from his kindred?  For he was already married to Sarah, a half sister, remember.  And yet in spite of that instruction, he sent back for a near kinswoman for his son to marry, and that woman, Rebekah, instructed her son Jacob to go back to get a wife from among her family as well.  And people read these things as being the instruction of God, but it is not so recorded.

Some would say that taking foreign spouses would re-introduce idolatry and paganism, but remember: When Jacob and his two wives, cousins of his and sisters, left his father-in-law to go back to the land Abraham had been instructed to go to, and one of those wives, his cousin Rachel, stole her fathers idols to take with them.

All who look with contempt on the other families of the earth had better look to their own selves first.  Genetically, we are only one race, the human race.  As you judge, so shall you be judged.

Brit-Am Comment: No-one should be pre-judging anyone.
It is a question of emphasis and sometimes of personal survival.
As long as they come to us and we not go to them we should be OK.

2. Brit-Am and Socializing
I understand that Brit-Am is not a "meeting place", but if you ever get emails from people who are interested in chatting with other two-house believers, I'd be happy for you to give them my email address...C

Brit-Am Comment: Brit-Am attracts the interest of eccentrics, of exceptional people in both the good and bad sense.
On the whole Brit-Am subscribers are of a much higher quality. There are exceptions.
People who wished explicitly (or by inference) their e-mail addresses to be posted in the past in several cases later changed their minds.
This is a problem.
Many Brit-Am subscribers would like to possibly meet up with like minded correspond with each other or to continue discussions beyond the monitored framework Brit-Am Now allows them.
Eventually we hope to find a solution for these problems.

Re: Brit-Am Now no. 1121

Greetings Yair!!!

Regarding Brian from Brisbane, Item 7.--Britam 1121, I would offer the following for your consideration regarding God's "Relocation Plan" for His "My people Israel" as previously discussed in 1120:

Since May of 1990 I have been studying the 3 lands of the Genesis 15:19 Promise Land that the OT Israelites did not inherit as Deuteronomy 7:1 confirms that they only inherited the 7 lands of Canaan described in Genesis 15:20-21.  As a lawyer who specialized in Real Estate and Probate Law my discovery that Abraham's seed also inherited the Genesis 15:19 Promise Land caused much excitement, as after I read The Light and the Glory by Peter Marshall, Jr. and David Manuel, Jr. (Revell-1977) in 1981, I became convinced that the first settlers who God planted in America starting in 1607 had to be of Israelite ancestry.

My discovery was likened unto reading a Last Will and Testament and discovering that my Father also gave my Israelite ancestors three more lands than the seven lands I knew about.  I had always been troubled with trying to reconcile how the seven lands of Genesis 15:20-21 could fulfill God's promise to Abraham and his seed that, "And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee." (Genesis 17:6).  When this promise was repeated to Jacob in Genesis 35:11-12 and it was decreed that Jacob and his 12 sons would become "a nation and a company of nations"--God also gave Jacob and his seed the Promise Land (meaning all TEN LANDS) he gave to Abraham and Isaac.

My point is this:  The Promise Land grant to Abraham's seed had to include a greater land area of inheritance than the Genesis 15:20-21/Deuteronomy 7:1 land area--as in David-Solomons time the boundaries (Numbers 34:1-12) were expanded to the Euphrates River and embraced a land area of approximately 30-40,000 square miles, or a land area the size of Ohio or Iowa!  THIS LAND AREA SIMPLY COULD NOT ACCOMMODATE THE FUTURE  "A NATION/COMPANY OF NATIONS"!-  Thus the Genesis 15:19 Promise Land had to be a large land area to accommodate and thus fulfill God's promises to the seed of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the birthright tribes of Joseph who would: "...grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth" with Ephraim becoming a "multitude of nations" and/or the "fullness of the nations of Israel."

Logic and common sense, together with the plain language of God recorded by Moses supports this hypothesis of a greater land area.  I will try to offer the Scriptural basis for this contention by summarizing several of the my main findings and the support thereof. 

First, I am aware of all the speculation by others where the 3 lands of the Kenites, Kennizzites and Kadmonites were and/or who they were, as well as the various speculations regarding Genesis 15:18 that is included in the description of the Promise Land grant.  In pursuing my quest, I considered the Bible as being an Abstract of Title to the whole earth.  After going to Bible Commentaries and other Biblical resources, in light of the above land grant to Abraham's seed in Genesis 15:19, I rejected the claims that they were located in the outlying nations in the vicinity of the seven lands of Canaan. Where these lands were located or who they were, is simply open to speculation as there is no clear evidence thereof--if logic and common sense are injected. Please consider the following

My initial research focused on (1) the description of Eden in Genesis 2:8-14; (2) the earth division in Peleg's time (3000+/- B.C.) in Genesis 10:25-29/1 Chronicles 1:19; (3) I Kings 9:26-28, 10:1-14, and in particular, 10:22; (4) Ezekiel 28:13; (5) Matthew 12:42/Luke 11:31;  and (6) Ezekiel 47:13-14, 15-21 & 48:5.  I am convinced that there is a strong possibility that the three lands of Genesis 15:19 are the same three lands of Eden described in Genesis 2:8-14.  I offer the following in support thereof.

(1) Genesis 2:8-14 describes three lands in Eden, to wit; the Garden, Havilah and Cush, all watered by great rivers that encompassed the whole lands thereof. The unnamed river watering the Garden could not have divided into 4 heads as the headwaters are at the beginning of a river; Havilah was known for the Pishon River that encompassed the whole land known for its "good gold"; The Gihon river watered the whole land of Cush.  Since Cush is known to be the land watered by the Nile (Gihon) River river that encompassed most of Africa, Eden had to be a large land area with no connection to the Tigris-Euphrates River in Babylon (Fertile Crescent);  Also these three lands of Eden apparently to be contiguous as the 4 rivers connecting them so requires, with the Euphrates River being a boundary line; Genesis 4:16 is proof that the Pangaea earth was divided into two parts, to wit: Eden and Nod with the dividing boundary line being the Euphrates River.  More importantly, Havilah known for its "good gold" (only "Ophir" is known for its "good gold") is the key to identifying Eden's Havilah as it could well be South America with the Pishon River (means "fast moving") being the Amazon River--see (3) below where the land of Ophir and Sheba strongly indicate the land of Havilah was only reached by the navies of Hiram and Solomon.

(2) The earth division in Peleg's time (Peleg, Jotktan and Nimrod were all contemporaries) took place over his life span of 239 years.  Just as the Flood in Noah's time (4000+/- B.C.) reconfigured Pangaea and Antarctica, India and Australia/New Zeal and were shifted to their present location and the earth tilted--some catastrophic event (the separation of Garden/North America and Havilah/South America) had to take place as Eber lived to be just under 500 years, and his sons, Peleg and Joktan, and all after him had a lifespan half of Ebers; just as the Flood halved mans lifespan from 1000 to 500 years and was a catastrophic event that reduced the earth's vegetation (oxygen content was lowered)--so the earth division in Peleg and Joktan's time drastically changed the vegetation on earth. It is known that up until 3000-3500 B.C. the vast Sahara desert was a lush garden with large rivers and vast inland lakes; when the continents of North and South America separated (secular scientists call this the "continental drift") from Africa the rainfall patterns were greatly reduced and the counter clock rainfall pattern no longer swept over Arabia and across the Sahara, and the clockwise rainfall pattern above the Equator no longer gave the Sahara a second dose of rainfall; and as both the continents were separated and continued to move away and from Cush-Africa-- over the next 1000 years the Sahara gradually became the vast desert is is today and in Abraham and Jacob's time the earth's oxygen content was again reduced and their lifespans were accordingly lowered!

(3) I Kings 9-10 record (also repeated in 2 Chronicles 8:17-18, 9:1-12 & 9:21) that in Solomon's time King Hiram  of Tyre helped Solomon to build a fleet of ships, and their joint-navies sailed to the land of Ophir for its "good gold" as cited above--THEIR VOYAGES TOOK 3 YEARS--meaning they had to sail to the land of Havilah known for the "good gold" of Ophir!  Please note that Joktan had 13 sons, including HAVILAH, OPHIR and SHEBA; while Cush had sons named Havilah and Sheba--ONLY JOKTAN HAD A SON NAMED OPHIR;  This is the KEY to finding that Eden's HAVILAH had to be separated from Cush- Africa; also note that these voyages lasted for a long time and was part of the Phoenician-Israelite Empire that you and Steven M. Collins document so well; also note that in Jehoshaphat's time he attempted to renew the voyages to Ophir, but God intervened and destroyed his navies! (2 Chronicles 20:35-37)

(4) Ezekiel 26-28 is a record of the vast commercial empire of the Phoenician-Israelite  Empire and its impact upon the earth in Solomon's time; I was amazed to find that verse 28:13 records that Tyre's navies had sailed to the Garden in Eden when it is disclosed: "Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God..."--MEANING THE GARDEN IN EDEN COULD ONLY BE REACHED BY BOAT, THUS THE GARDEN COULD WELL HAVE BEEN IN NORTH AMERICA AND THE RIVER WATERING THE GARDEN WAS THE VAST MISSISSIPPI THAT HAS FOUR HEADS, TO WIT; the ARKANSAS, RED, MISSOURI and OHIO RIVERS!

(5) Matthew and Luke as cited above record Jesus as declaring that the Queen of the South (Sheba) that came to hear the wisdom of Solomon--"for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth. . ."--means that while Cush's Sheba and Havilah may have been been involved in the events that took place David/Solomon's time, Joktan's Sheba who also brought gold at the time of the 3 year voyages of Solomon-Hiram's to Ophir, also probably HAD TO HAVE SAILED FROM THE LAND OF HAVILAH that was once part of Eden before the earth was divided in Peleg's time!

(6) While Numbers 34:1-12 described the boundaries of Israel before their removal in 722 and 586 B.C., a close examination of Ezekiel 47:15-20 will show that the east boundary of the new inheritance and boundary plan for post-removed 12 tribes of Israel is different, however, more significant is the east-west boundaries appear to be symbolic of the whole post-Peleg earth and the boundary location of the different tribes differs significantly from the boundaries in Joshua's time.  This has to have significance if you give credence to Abraham being the ":father of many nations" and Jacob becoming "a nation and a company of nations."  Note that Joseph shall have two portions to inherit that are of equal size and Ezekiel 48:5 has Manasseh north of Ephraim divided by an east-west boundary.  Isn't it strange that Canada is north of America; they have a common east-west boundary; and they are of equal size (each about 3.6-7 million sq. mi. [or 7.2 Million sq. mi.]) that makes up 15% of the earth's 50 Million sq. mi.--rich in agricultural lands, natural resources as described in Jacob's Blessing (Genesis 49:22-26) and Mose's Blessing (Deuteronomy 33:13-17? Isn't it equally as strange that America's population (300+ Million) is ten times Canada's (30+/- Million)?

I realize that the above discourse does not conform, and may contradict teaching of the Christian church, Rabbinical writings and oral traditions, however--I submit it is plausible and worthy of study and consideration.  If true, the possibility that the Genesis 15:19 Promise Land is all land below the Euphrates River--and includes North-South America, Africa, and Australia and the islands of southeast Asia, such possibility new horizons of understanding God's strategic plan for Abraham's seed.  Such a finding gives credence to God's plan for all the tribes of Israel, including the two tribes of Joseph--who all are to grow into an "immense multitude" in the midst of the earth!  Such a possibility means Ephraim, Manasseh and those of the tribes of Judah who did not return to Jerusalem in Ezra and Nehemiah's time, as well as the large numbers of those of Israel who "resorted" (really "defected") to Judah (see 2 Chronicles 11:13 & 15:9-15) during the time of King Rehoboam to king Asa's reigns (930-895 B.C.) and became a part of Judah by the covenant described in 2 Chronicles 15:9-15--all are now planted in the appointed/ordained "home of their own" where they will move no more! (2 Samuel 7:10 and 1 Chronicles 17:9)

Admittedly the Biblical interpretations of God's plan for Israel may not be completely accurate and raise more questions than answers--however, do not they give credence to the return of the Jews of Judah to their OT homeland and the fulfillment of God's plan of destiny for His "My people Israel" who are to become "a nation and a company of nations"?  America-Canada, Ireland, Scotland, England and Australia, as well as the other Israelite nations of the Ten Tribes of Israel suffer from an Identity Crisis and need to know who they are!       

Yair, I realize that the above discourse may be too large cover in a Britam email, but I would appreciate your critique of the same, as your exhaustive work on the Ten Tribes of Israel has been of immense help to me and countless others who need to know that we too--are "Abraham's seed."

May our Heavenly Father continue to bless you and your work to disclose the Israelite Identity of those nations of Jacob's "Company of Nations" that are truly "Abraham's seed."
