WHO WERE THE BLACK PEOPLE SOLD INTO SLAVERY?


INTRODUCTION
Our history is often defined by slavery. We are taught that our forefathers were captured on the African continent and shipped all over the western hemisphere, to be sold as human property. There we were raped and robbed of our heritage and a foreign culture was imposed upon us by our captors. Our entire identity was reconstructed.
But, is there more to our past than appears on the surface? Only through looking beyond the surface do you get a deeper meaning. Then and only then can you come to a truer understanding.

A people without a history are a people that are lost. Although most black people have knowledge of slavery, we still fail in our attempts to discover who we were prior to this time. What is fed to us about our past has been obscured to conceal the atrocities that were committed against us. The result has been the descendants of slavery who continue to stumble in darkness, have not discovered themselves.
This solemn demise has caused us to become victims of amnesia. The marks of a lost race!

Christ spoke of the miraculous rebirth of this dead and scattered nation. He referred to them in Matthews 10:6 as '...the lost sheep of the house of Israel.' THE LOST TRIBES OF ISRAEL Biblical Names Slave Names

Those whose fathers are of so-called Negroid and Indian descent throughout North, Central and South America make up the 12 Lost Tribes of Israel.

This information provides the missing link to that secret. It explains the connection between the Biblical Hebrew Israelites and the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. It explains how the Israelites escaped the invading Roman armies in Jerusalem and fled into the interiors of Africa. They were captured and sold on cargo slave ships.

Although I will use excerpts from secular historians, I have not totally depended on their research. This information is chiefly Bible based. The mystery shrouding our true background and historical past is revealed in the Bible. The Bible is the true book that enables us to gain a distinct consciousness of ourselves. It gives us the answer to what? Where? When? Why? And How? Concerning our people. Even though this is a study of our past, these biblical prophesies are applicable to our people living today. It will enable the reader to understand our current, cultural, social, political and economic situation. These are questions that will never be answered by any Religion, Philosophy, Educational systems or self-made black organisations that have sprung up amongst our people. Until we repent and turn back to the Heavenly Father through Christs example and keep his commandments in the Bible, we will continue to remain separated, oppressed, suppressed, repressed, lost, confused and destroyed as a nation of people.

THE VALUE OF HISTORY


Of all subjects worthy of research, history is by far the most beneficial. Having knowledge of ones past not only allows you to have a framework or point of reference, but also explains why present situations exist today. In other words, the past causes the present. History then, provides the only material available to study the human condition. It explains the factors that cause changes around us today. When we gain knowledge of our past, it leaves an impression on our minds. This is more than just mere representation, but also has the power to inspire and direct us. When we discover ourselves, it provides a social and cultural context. Without clarification in our minds, of our origin, we cannot understand our current role in the world or the problems that are particular to us as a people.

More than just a collection of names, dates and dead things, history is a living, omnipresent thing. It is part of our everyday lives. For black people, whether conscious or unaware, educated or misled, the events of the past subliminally have an effect on our lives. Just as a tree cannot grow without roots, a people will not grow, without knowledge of their past. They will stagnate in a continual cycle of mistakes, unable to learn from previous experiences. Your history, heritage, customs, culture and language are the vital ingredients for a nation. These are the social cords that unite us as a people. Without these fundamental ingredients we can not function.

WHAT IS AN ISRAELITE?
Before we can prove who the Israelites are today, we need to understand what an Israelite is. The Israelites are not the people who are born in or currently occupy the land of Israel. It is not a religious group or organisation that you can become a member of. A person's tribe is not determined by the month they were born, and there is no such thing as a 'spiritual Israelite'. The Israelites are the descendants of the Hebrew patriarch Jacob and membership is determined by the seed of your forefathers.

The book of Genesis tells us that on the banks of the river Jabbok, Jacob wrestled with an angel and received the name of Israel.
Genesis 32:28, 'And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with G_d and with men, and hast prevailed'.

The name Israel which applies to all his descendants derives from the Hebrew word 'Ya Shar Ahlah' which means 'He is a prince of powers'. The 'Children of Israel' is the name given to Jacob's eleven sons, Reuben, Simeon, Judah, Zebulun, Issachar, Dan, Gad, Asher, Naphtali, Benjamin and Levi. With the removal of Dan and the addition of the two sons of Joseph; Ephraim and Manasseh, the children of Israel eventually became known as 'The Twelve Tribes of Israel'.

The Sons of Israel became a distinct group within the larger framework of Hebrews. All Hebrew are the descendants of Eber, who is the great grandson of Noah.

ISRAEL JOURNEY TO THE LAND OF EGYPT


Jacob and his ten sons migrated into Egypt, because of the famine in the land of Canaan. Jacob's son Joseph was already in Egypt, as he had been sold to the Ishmaelites by his jealous brothers, who then, sold him to the Egyptians. While in Egypt as a slave, we find in Genesis 42nd chapter that Joseph rose to a position of power. He became Viceroy of Egypt. Soon after, Joseph's ten brothers came into Egypt to buy corn. All newcomers who came into Egypt had to buy corn from Joseph, but Joseph's ten brothers did not recognise him. Jacobss ten sons considered him just to be another Egyptian. But Joseph recognised them and began to play a double game, being generous to them but at the same time taking revenge for the wrong that they had done to him. Eventually Joseph revealed himself unto his brethren. The Pharaoh at that time showed them favour and allowed them to settle in the land of Goshen. From this moment they ceased to be merely a clan and became a nation. In a short space of time, on the fertile plains of Egypt, the Israelites multiplied rapidly and formed an increasingly large population. The startling growth of this foreign nation aroused the fears of a new Pharaoh 'who did not know Joseph' and did not show favour to the Israelites as the former Pharaoh did. The Israelites were eventually enslaved and oppressed by the Egyptians.

THE COVENANT
After The Heavenly Father delivered the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt, under the leadership of Moses, the Israelites made a covenant with G_d at Mt. Sinai. A covenant means a contract, bond or agreement between individuals. In regards to the covenant made in Mt Sinai, it was between G_d and the Israelites. In Exodus 19:5-8 the Bible Says this:

'Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine. And Moses came and called for all the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which the Lord commanded him And the people answered together, and said, All that the Lord have spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the Lord.'

THE CHOSEN PEOPLE


Through this process the Israelites became the chosen people of G_d. This covenant that the Heavenly Father made with the Israelites, not only gave the Israelites an understanding of what type of G_d Yahawah is, but it also gave them an understanding of G_d's divine purpose for them as his holy people. The terms and conditions of this contract which are called the laws and commandments in the Bible are the rights and wrongs, the positives and negatives the do's and the don'ts. These instructions or guidelines are commandments that govern life. Before we move on any further, there is one thing the reader must keep in mind. Although we live in the physical world, we are all subject to the spiritual commandments of G_d. These divine commandments which were revealed by Moses are judgements which permeate every part of the Lords creation. They are the cause and effect of our lives. In other words, whether we live or die, succeed or fail, have peace or strife, all the judgements we receive in life are direct consequences of G_d's commandments. Although man has created religions and dogma according to his own imagination in the name of a fictitious god, G_d did not ordain religions. He gave man laws. No matter how much belief or devotion one might have in a manmade religion, this has no consideration in relation to what G_d wants. In Deuteronomy 28:1-14, the Israelites were told all the blessings they would receive if they kept the covenant. Although the Israelites continually rebelled against G_d and broke his commandments as a consequence of their disobedience they were punished by G_d and led into captivity (slavery) amongst all nations.

THE ISRAELITES ARE BLACK

The Twelve tribes of Israel, the people of the Bible, were and still are black people. This is a fact that shall be proven with ease. For years, through religious doctrines, renaissance art and pictures depicting white people in scenes from the Bible, the world has been led to believe that the people of the Bible were white. For over two thousand years since Europeans have dominated the world, the illusion that the Chosen People are white dominated the world. In the face of Biblical evidence to prove the contrary and with the truth finally beginning to emerge, there are still those amongst black people who continue to remain in spiritual bondage and cling to this lie. "What difference does colour make?" Some may say in order to evade the issue. The difference that colour makes is the difference between the truth and a lie.
Ephesians 4:25 says, Wherefore put away lying, speak every man truth to his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

Although colour is a subject avoided in todays politically correct society, the Bible contains detailed narratives on physical appearances and skin colour. Because the history of black people has been erased, we, more than any other nation struggle with the misconceptions about our selfimage. This is not only because our history has been erased, but the denial of our contribution to history was based on maintaining the myth that black people are inferior in order to make slavery justifiable. One of the major obstacles black people have been confronted with is not realising and accepting that the Bible is the Black Israelite's book. The scriptures contain the history, culture and genealogies of the Black Israelites. There are many indications in the scriptures to prove these facts.

JOSEPH
When Josephs ten brothers came into Egypt in Africa to buy corn, they could not recognise him as their brother. They did not recognise him because he had dwelled amongst the Egyptians from a child. His brothers could not distinguish him from the black Egyptians because Joseph himself

was black. If he were white he would have stood out and raised the curiosity of his brothers straight away.

MOSES
When the new Pharaoh of Egypt promulgated an edict of genocide to cast all the Hebrew male babies into the Nile River, Miriam and her mother hid the baby, Moses in the bulrushes. When Pharaohs daughter came down to the Nile to wash herself, she saw the basket and the baby. Pharaohs daughter knew the baby was a Hebrew and she adopted him. Moses was then raised in the house of Pharaoh as his grandson. If Moses had been a white child he would have stood out like a sore thumb. It would have been impossible to conceal him because the Egyptians are a dark skinned nation. If we turn our attention to Exodus and the miracle G_d showed Moses we are told:
Exodus 4:6, "And the Lord said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand, into thy bosom (chest). And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow."

Leprosy is a disease that turns the skin white. The miracle was to turn Moses' hand white. He was then told to put his hand back into his bosom again and as the Bible says, '...behold, it was turned again to his original flesh'. Common sense tells us that if Moses had already been a white person, this miracle would have been impossible to perform. Once the skin had been turned leprous and white it returned to its original flesh. If the miracle was to turn it white then the 'original flesh' would have had to have been black. Continuing with the story of Moses, after he had slayed an Egyptian for smiting a Hebrew, he fled to the land of Median. While he was there the Bible tells us a story of how he helped the daughters of Jethro to water their flocks. Upon her return, when she was asked by her father why she returned early she replied:
Exodus 2:19 "... An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds"

Moses was described as an Egyptian. The Egyptians are Hamites. The Hamites are black!

LEPROSY
In the book of Leviticus the thirteenth chapter it further sheds light on the fact that the Israelites were black. The Biblical law of leprosy is the skin turning white! In other words, to have white skin according to the Bible is to have the curse of leprosy!

MIRIAM
To prove this point further we need to turn to the story of Miriam. Miriam, Moses' sister was cursed because she grumbled against Moses having an Ethiopian wife.
In Numbers 12:9-10 it says, "And the anger of the Lord was kindled against them; and he departed. And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold Miriam became leprous, as white as snow:"

This scripture proves two things. For Miriam to have been turned white she would have had to have been black to begin with, and to repeat the point I made earlier, to have white skin according to the Bible is to have the curse of leprosy! This refutes the spurious claims made by white Christian fundamentalist groups who have taught for hundreds of years that to be black is a result of a curse!!! It is the contrary. These laws of leprosy were given to the nation of Israel and they could not apply to white people.

KING DAVID
Next we turn to the story of David when the prophet Samuel was secretly sent by G_d to anoint him king in Bethlehem. In I Samuel 16:12 the Bible describes the future king of Israel by these words, " Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance,"

In his book "Ancient and modern Britons," David Macritchie, refers to the word ruddy: "Again, it was noticed that the adjective ruadh,-or as we now pronounce it in "English," ruddy and red-signifies both black and tawny, and red, or ruddy,..." He also goes on further to explain, "Also that dearg, which is understood to mean red in "Gaelic," has become dark..." (pp.377)

SOLOMON
Now if his father David was black than his son Solomon would have had to be black. To proof this just as the Bible describes David in the verse above as ruddy (black) and beautiful, well Solomon describes himself in the same way.
In the Song of Solomon 1:5, Solomon says, " I am black, but comely (beautiful), O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Ke'dar..."

In the Dictionary of the Bible, by Dr William Smith, volume2, 1888; page 1526: Qadar/Ke'dar means 'black skinned man' The Bible compares the Israelites and the Ethiopians together.
In Amos 9:7 the Bible says, Are ye not as the children of the Ethiopians unto me, O children of Israel?"

The Roman historian Tacticus wrote that many of his time believed that the "Jews were a race of Ethiopian origin". Keep in mind that in Tacticus' time there was no country called Africa. The whole of Africa was called Ethiopia. In other words, The Israelites were of the black race!

CHRIST
Moving to the New Testament we turn our attention to the descendant of David and Solomon, Christ. In Matthews 2:13-14 we read that when Christ was a child Herod made a decree that all Hebrew males be killed. Fleeing for the safety of their child we are told that Joseph and Mary ran into Egypt to hide among the Egyptians. As mentioned earlier, with the example of Joseph, the Egyptians and the Israelites are similar in appearance. Being in Africa, a land of black people, Christ and his family could disguise themselves among the Egyptians. When we turn to the book of Revelations John the revelatory gives a detailed description of Christ he writes:

Revelations 1:14-15 "His head (the hair on his head) and his hairs (his beard) were white like wool, as white as snow (fully grey) and his eyes were as the flames of fire...and his feet like unto fine brass as if they burned in a furnace..."

Now there are two things to gather from these verses. The first is the texture of Christ's hair and the second is his skin color. When you read the beginning of the verse his texture of hair is described as being like wool. Wooly hair is black hair. Next it describes the skin color of Christ's feet. Keep in mind that your feet are the same color as the rest of your body. John describes it as being like brass. Now brass is a derivative of brown. It is a copper color. Now if you take brown copper and burn it in a furnace (oven), it will turn jet black. As a matter of fact, if you take anything and burn it in an oven it will turn black! Josephus a Jewish historian of the first century said that Christ "was a man of simple appearance, mature age and dark skin".

THE WORD CHRIST


Due to the Greek influence on the language we speak today, the savior is called 'Christ' rather than 'Mashiyach' which is the Hebrew equivalent. A quick inspection into the New Webster's Dictionary reveals another interesting point about the name 'Christ'. The etymology of the word Christ as given in the said dictionary is: [ ME & OE. Crist. LL Christus, GR Christos, the anointed, spread over, smear, grime]. 'Grime' is defined as dirt, especially sooty dirt, rubbed into or covering a surface, as of skin.

THE HEBREW ISRAELITES AND THE TRANSATLANTIC SLAVE TRADE CONNECTION


Throughout the Bible the Israelites constantly rebelled against the Most High by disobeying his Commandments. In the book of Deuteronomy Moses forewarned the Israelites of the punishments that would befall them if they did not observe His commandments. Part of that punishment was that the Israelites would be scattered throughout the different parts of the Earth. In Deuteronomy 28: 64 the Bible says this:

And The Most High shall scatter thee among all people, from one end of the earth even unto the other

ASSYRIA

In 721 B.C. Shalmanesser, the King of Assyria conquered the Ten Northern Tribes. They were deported out of the land of Israel and into the land of Assyria. In II Kings 18: 11-12 it says this: And the king of Assyria did carry away Israel unto Assyria, and put them in Halah and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes. Because they obeyed not the voice of the Most High, but transgressed his covenant, and all that Moses the servant of the Most High commanded, and would not hear nor do them

BABYLON
In 586 B.C. approximately 200 years later, the same fate happened to the three Southern Tribes when Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon, destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple and lead thousands of Israelites into captivity in Babylon.

PERSIANS
After serving captivity for 70 years in Babylon the Persian King Darius conquered the Babylonians and allowed a remnant of Israelites to return and rebuild the kingdom.

GREEKS
In the year 331 B.C. Alexander the Great conquered the Persians. The Greeks became the next world power. After Alexanders death, his kingdom was divided. Around 176 B.C. Antiochus came against Israel and destroyed it. The city was burned down and the women and children were taken captive. He also wrote a decree to his entire kingdom that people should abandon their practices and adopt the customs of the Greeks. All people should be one. During this time the Maccabean revolt took place against the Greeks and in the year 165 B.C. the Greek empire fell to the Romans.

ROMANS
The Romans persecuted the Israelites just as the Greeks, forbidding them from circumcising their boys, observing the Sabbath and reading the Bible. In Matthews 24: 15-16 Christ foretold the destruction of the Temple and the overthrowing of Jerusalem by the Roman armies: When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whosoever readeth, let him understand). Then let them which are in Judea flee into the mountains. This destruction of the Temple and the final dispersion of the Israelites took place in 70 A.D. as Christ had prophesied. In Luke 21: 24 Christ also says this: And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led captive unto all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the time of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

AFRICA
In his book From Babylon to Timbuktu Rudolf R Windsor Gives an account of this scattering of the Israelites: In the year 65B.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 of Pompey to Julius, it has been estimated that over 1,000,000 Jews (Israelites) fled into Africa, fleeing from Roman persecution and slavery. The slave markets were full of black Jewish slaves. Millions of Israelites who escaped the persecution of the Roman-Jewish War fled into the interiors of Africa. In his book Jewish Roots in Africa, Mr. Litchtblau, speaking of the Israelites that ran into Africa, says this: Pressed under sweeping regional conflicts, Jews settled as traders and warriors in Yemen, the Horn of Africa, Egypt, the kingdom of Kush and Nubia, North African Punic settlements (Carthage and Velubilis), and areas now covered by Mauritania. More migrants followed these early Jewish settlers to Northern Africa Rudolf R Windsor in his book Babylon to Timbuktu points out: The black Jews who migrated to the Sudan from the North converged with the Jews migrating from the eastern Sudan to the countries of the Niger RiverThere is much proof, and still much more to be revealed by scholars, that there existed prior to the slave trade and subsequent to it many tribes, colonies, and kingdoms in West Africa. pg. 120 1600 years later their descendants were rounded up and captured by African and the Arabs slave traders and sold to the Europeans, fulfilling the curses that were written in Deuteronomy the 28th chapter. Rudolf R Windsor in his book From Babylon to Timbuktu goes on further to explain on pg. 132:

As persecuted communities, they were rather more in danger than other Negroes of being raided by war-parties and sold as slaves

FORETELLING BY MOSES
Moses forewarned the Children of Israel of the curses that would befall them if they did not follow the commandments of The Most High. In Deuteronomy 28:15 it says this: And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt not harken (listen) unto the voice of the of the L_rd thy G_d, to observe to do all his commandments and his statues which I command thee this day that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee. The particular curses that would befall the Children of Israel for not keeping the commandments of G_d is that they would suffer slavery similar to the type of slavery they suffered in Egypt and that they would be transported into this new slavery on ships and that the places where we would be transported they would be sold as slaves to their enemies. In Deuteronomy 28:68 it says this: And the L_rd shall bring thee into Egypt (slavery) again (a second time) with ships (Cargo Slave 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 (slave men) and bondwomen, (slave women) and no man shall buy you. This is the missing link between the Hebrew Israelites and the Transatlantic Slave Trade. It explains how the Israelites fled into the interiors of Africa as refugees after the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 A.D. They were rounded up on the African continent and shipped all over the western hemisphere to be sold as slaves. This is the history that has been omitted from the pages of history.
