1. Ted Dornan: Magen David represents the name "David"
From: Ted Dornan <>

Shalom Yair!

Concerning the Magen David [Shield (Star) of David]: If we don't know it by now, we ought to
consider that haSatan [the Satan] has counterfeits for the truth in every department.
One of the simplest explanations I've heard is that the Magen David is
called that because it is a pair of interlocked paleo-daleths [the letter "D" in Ancient Hebrew script,
shaped like a triangle standing on its side]
the name "David." Why should it be a bother to anyone if the pagans
"borrowed" it and used such a sign in their worship?

Am Yisrael CHAI!

2. Did Ancient Israel Reach to the Euphrates?

Am I mistaken when I say that Israel never got to conquer the land (Greater Israel) that the Almighty One promised to Abraham in Gen 15:18.  There are at least 3 other references in the tenack concerning these borders (exo 23:31, deu 11:24 & Jos 1:4).  There are 3 verses that seems to puzzle me:
1 Kg 4:21 - And Solomon reigned over all kingdoms from the river unto the land of the Philistines, and unto the border of Egypt: they brought presents, and served Solomon all the days of his life.
1 Chr 18:3 And David smote Hadarezer king of Zobah unto Hamath, as he went to establish his dominion by the river Euphrates.
2 Sam 8:3 David smote also Hadadezer, the son of Rehob, king of Zobah, as he went to recover his border at the river

The first verse seems to indicate that Solomon reached that plateau while the other ones indicate (if that) that David reached at least the Euphrates River. I realize that the last two are referencing the same event.

My previous knowledge had me thinking that the farthest Solomon ever conquered (eastward) was modern day Jordan.

I appreciate your thoughts on this

Shalom Tony

The Ancient Israelites conquered all the Middle East several times over.

From: Kevin Opp <>
Subject: RE: "Brit-Am Now"-819- Biblically there is no gentile
#2. Who are the Gentiles?

Goy means as you pointed out nations not a derogatory slang for other peoples.  Abraham left the 'goyim' in hopes of Gods promise that he would be a father of many 'goyim.'  Ephraim was said by Israel to become a 'melo hagoyim' which is a multitude or fullness of the nations.  The northern kingdom is a 'goy' that became scattered among the 'goyim.'  Jews are part of the fallen tent of David, which consists of the whole house of Israel.
Israel is a special 'goy' a blessing and a light to all the 'goyim' of the world. Ephraim lost their identity of  Israel among the 'goyim' and Judah remained a good and faithful 'goy'  to be once reunited with his long lost brother and comprise the promised and great 'goy' of renewed Israel.

I find that people who use terms like Gentile, tend to look down upon others and be prideful.  They use it as a derogatory slam to other peoples, even though there is no scriptural ground.  Scripture is clear that God loves all the 'goyim' but chose Israel among all the 'goyim' to make covenant with him and become a chosen 'goy' of kings and priests.  We learn especially in Jonah and Ruth that God is interested in a 'goy' to specifically be his own, and loves all the 'goyim' and desires there coming to truth and repentance.
It is the calling of Israel to lead the other nations to repentence not look down on them and call them gentiles.  God cared about Assyria in the book of Job and sent his prophet to them, God choose Ruth a Moabitess and she became a mother of David.  From my perspective God is more interested in a people who will serve him then blood.  This does not in any way negate his calling and promises to Israel.  Most of those in the ten tribes who return will be Israelites, but the Ruths will attach themselves to them.  It is not our authority to pick and choose, God will call whom he wishes.  And who is anyone to turn away those that they don't think are Israelites, much as many in the Christian world say about Kazars.  Firstly who cares, God is happy whoever they are that they repented and chose him.  Secondly if anyone really thinks that a group that large chose the God of Abraham and was not an Israelite nation needs to get their heads checked.   Other groups of people that large hate the Jews and the God of Israel history truly proves.
Instead of worrying about who is this and who is that he should do the job of Israel, be a light to the nations, and lead anyone who wants to know the God of Israel to repentance through the Torah.  I believe in the restored tabernacle of David there will be a representative of all the nations in the world.  This is the only thing that can fulfill Gods promise that Israel will be a light to the nations!  It is not our job to do a DNA test and whatever else and decide if he should print gentile on their forehead.
Because regardless the have chosen the God of Israel and he has chosen them and as the Torah says 'Let no foreigner among you say 'I have  no part in Israel."  And ''There is one law for the foreigner as to the citizen, I am [the LORD] your God."

4. "To Death Do us Part": Postscript to DNA and Environmental Influence
A point we forgot to mention is that DNA is now extracted from the remains of
ancient bones etc.
The results tend to be controversial.
The relevant literature freely admits that DNA is liable to change
and that Y (Male) DNA readings could be mistaken since the DNA
now gives an alternate reading from the original one.
We have mentioned this before.
The argument is that in a living organism exists a protective mechanism
that keeps the DNA as it is. After death this protection is liable to break down
and allow changes to occur presumably due to environmental influence.

As a layman I would say that the onus SHOULD BE ON THE RESEARCHERS
to prove that the "DNA status protection" can cease to function only after

the subject of Genesis 10, the need to keep the flame of this truth alive
and how to approach the subject.

taxonomy. Physical characteristics are delved into: skull types, hair, eyes,
skin, blood groups.

floods; how all nations descend from Adam and later through Noah. The
structure and meaning of the Table of Nations and the typology of bulls

ethnographers have to say about this intriguing chapter.

such as Seba, Sabteca, Raamah etc traced primarily to exotic locations.

6. The Other Descendants of Cush

mysterious Sukkim; land and peoples of the Colchis (adjacent to the Black
Sea); Australian Aboriginals; Egyptian connection to Australia anciently?

are the Finno-Ugric peoples scattered in north-west Russia, eastern Finland,
Estonia and Hungary?

A thorough discussion of Arphaxad and Aram. The descendants, including
Joktan, mysterious Ophir.

traced back to Abraham.

13. Modern Identities of the descendants of Elam and Lud

Ancient Elam compared to modern nations, place-names, tribes etc. Who could
his descendants be today?

14. The Assyrians in the Modern World!

A lot of space has been spent discussing the Assyrians in this book. Why?
one may ask. This will become self-evident, but they were a very important
and dominant people in the ancient Middle East and impact upon Israel to
such a degree, that they must be traced and their descendants identified

14.1. Mysterious Origin of the Assyrians

14.2. The Fearsome Assyrians and their Migrations Into Central Europe

14.3. The Hittite Empire and the Modern Assyro-Hittites

14.4. What is Germany's Destiny?

his character, empire and descendants all discussed. After his empire fell,
his descendants were driven out of the Middle East and I trace them on their
journey to where they reside today.

15. Israel - Successors of Arphaxad

After going into captivity, most of the peoples of Israel disappear from
view - what became of them and what is their future? Why is Israel so
important to God and why are they so emphasised in the Bible?
