There have been many thousands of Mesopotamian inscriptions which have been discovered since the expansion of the British Empire helped to open the Near East to European archaeologists in the 19th century. While not all of them have even yet been deciphered, translations of thousands of such inscriptions have been made, and many volumes of those translations have been published. One significant publication is the Ancient Near Eastern Texts Relating to the Old Testament (ANET), edited by James B. Pritchard and published by Princeton University Press.
The book contains all of the significant inscriptions that had been discovered up to the time of its publication which mention the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities of ancient Israel and Judah. Many of these inscriptions confirm accounts which are given in the historical books of the Bible, and for the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities, especially in the books we know as 2nd Kings and 2nd Chronicles.
But they also help corroborate many things we may read in early Greek histories. For example, in Herodotus, The Histories, 7.64, where he described the armies commanded by Xerxes : “The Sacae, or Scyths, were clad in trousers, and had on their heads tall stiff caps rising to a point. They bore the bow of their country and the dagger; besides which they carried the battle-axe, or sagaris. They were in truth Amyrgian Scythians, but the Persians called them Sacae, since that is the name which they give to all Scythians.” This name Sacae, or Sakans, many of the Scythians had maintained as they migrated into Europe, and some were later known as Saxons.
Now, from page 316 of ANET, in a translation of an inscription of Xerxes, the Persian king who had invaded Greece and was defeated about 480 AD, where he boasted of the countries and tribes over which he ruled: “Thus speaks king Xerxes: These are the countries – in addition to Persia – over which I am king under the ‘shadow’ of Ahuramazda, over which I hold sway, which are bringing their tribute to me – whatever is commanded them by me, that they do and they abide by my law(s) –: Media, Elam, Arachosia, Urartu (Pers. version: Armenia), Drangiana, Parthia, (H)aria, Bactria, Sogdia, Chorasmia, Babylonia, Assyria, Sattagydia, Sardis, Egypt (Mi-fir), the Ionians who live on the salty sea and (those) who live beyond (lit : on the other shore of) the salty sea, Маkа, Arabia, Gandara, India, Cappadocia, Da’an, the Amyrgian Cimmerians (Pers. and Elam. versions: Sakans), the Cimmerians (wearing) pointed caps, the Skudra, the Akupish, Libya, Banneshu (Carians) (and) Kush.”
Here we see that Herodotus’ description of the Scythians, and the identity of the people whom the Greeks called Scythians with the people whom the Assyrians called Kimmerians, is all corroborated in these inscriptions, as well as the assertion that the Kimmerians/Sakae/Scythians originated in the Near East. Just a few hundred years later, they were invading Italy and waging war against the Romans eventually gaining a new name the “galli” (gauls) along with subsequent wave after wave settling Europe.
The ancient historian Flavius Josephus was a Judean and a Pharisee; he also served as a general with the Judean armies in their fight against Rome. He was born after Christ and was alive to experience the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. He wrote several books that are highly valuable to us today and give us much insight.
Firstly, he fills in the gap between the Maccabees and the coming of Christ, roughly 200 BC to 0 BC. No Biblical book was written (or at least is extant) from this period. Josephus gives us insight into the politics of Judea, including important background information concerning the Pharisees, Sadducees, and Essenes. He confirms that the deported twelve tribes were located across the Euphrates River to the north and east as the Scythians, Sacea, Parthians, and so forth. Lastly and perhaps most importantly, he explains the history of the Edomites. These non-Israelites were integrated into Judea through “conversion” to the religion and customs of the Judeans. Eventually, the real Judeans would become Christians and lose their Israelite identity. But the Edomites would reject Christianity and falsely claim to be the real Judeans. Eventually, over the years, they were called Jews. Originally they claimed to the tribe of Judah, but now but they claim to be all twelve Israelite tribes. They continue that lie to this day.
Of the Pharisees, Sadducees, and Essenes sects, only the Essenes required their members to be racially pure Israelites or as Josephus puts it “Judeans by birth.” Since Josephus was of the tribe of Levi, he was accepted into the Essenes. However, later he joined the Pharisees because the Essenes were completely excluded from political life within Judea. From this personal account of Josephus, we see that the Pharisees and Sadducees whom Christ dealt with during His ministry were not all racially Israelites. These sects accepted non-Israelite converts. So if they weren’t Israelites by birth, who were they? Would knowing their real identity help explain the contention Christ faced from them?
Josephus’s history about Judea provides answers. The small number of Israelites who returned from Babylon consisted of members of the tribes of Judah, Levi, and Benjamin. They rebuilt the temple and country under the Persian Empire and then under Alexander the Great and the kingdoms of his successors. Eventually, the Judeans grew strong and became independent and prosperous. At this time, the Edomites (who descended from Jacob’s rebellious brother Esau) lived south of Israel in the land of Edom. The Edomites continually attacked the Israelites. The Israelites fought to drive them out (without lasting success) and also fought to expand their own territory. Josephus recounts that around the 2nd Century BC, the Israelites changed tactics. They began to use force and persuasion to convert the Edomites to their religion, customs, and rites. Josephus tells us that the converted Edomites were no longer called Edomites but Judeans.
Herod the Great was an Edomite convert. He bribed Marc Anthony the Roman general into making him king over the Judeans. Josephus notes that Herod and his ambitious family were Edomites. Many Edomites were appointed to be priests and even high priests. Thus we can understand why the largely Edomite religious establishment continuously hounded and harassed Christ and why they sought to kill Him. We can understand why they completely rejected Christianity (Christianity was never for them) and why Christ called them “a race of vipers.” Their forefather Esau had married into the race of Cain, therefore his descendants were Canaanites. The religious elite of Christ’s time and the modern “Jews” were and are Canaanites, not Israelites. Christ called them the “synagogue of Satan.” This name indicates that they are the offspring of the Fallen Angels and are by their very nature opposed to Him and His Adamic creation.
In Antiquities Book 11, Josephus recorded that Ezra received an important letter from the Persian King Xerxes. Ezra sent a copy to the Israelites in captivity. Josephus wrote in part: “When Ezra had received this letter, he was very joyful, and began to worship God, and confessed that he had been the cause of the king’s great favour to him, and that for the same reason he gave all the thanks to God. So he read the letter at Babylon to those Jews [Judahites] that were there; but he kept the letter itself, and sent a copy of it to all those of his own nation that were in Media; and when these Jews [Judahites] had understood what piety the king had toward God, and what kindness he had for Ezra, they were all greatly pleased; nay, many of them took their effects with them, and came to Babylon, as very desirous of going down to Jerusalem; but then the entire body of the people of Israel remained in that country; therefore there are but two tribes in Asia and Europe subject to the Romans, while the ten tribes are beyond the Euphrates till now, and are an immense multitude, and not to be estimated by numbers” 131 to 133. Here we see that the deported Israelites were indeed the Sacae, Scythians, Parthians, etc., as only they were an immense multitude over the Euphrates river.
In Antiquities Book 12, Josephus wrote that the Greek kings of Syria (the Seleucids) were meddling in the affairs of the high priests of Jerusalem, and even removed a certain priest from office and replaced him. Part of the reason for the troubles with the priests was a desire among some of them to Hellenize, or adopt the Greek mode of living. Other priests adamantly opposed Hellenization. Josephus mentions two priests named Jesus and Onias who changed their names to Jason and Menelaus, and how they and others of their party had “… retired to Antiochus, and informed him that they were desirous to leave the laws of their country, and the Jewish [Judaean] way of living according to them, and to follow the king’s laws, and the Greek way of living. Therefore they desired his permission to build them a gymnasium at Jerusalem. And when he had given them permission, they also hid the circumcision of their genitals, that even when they were naked they might appear to be Greeks. Accordingly, they abandoned all the customs that belonged to their own country, and imitated the practices of the other nations” 240, 241. Of course, the Greeks were white and often blond, so the Judaeans certainly could not appear to be Greeks by just hiding their circumcision unless they were also genetically white. The synagogue art of the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD — some of which was created five hundred years after the events described by Josephus — depicts the Israelites as white.
It’s vital to note that whilst the books of Josephus may have been somewhat available to the early Christian churches in the Greco-Roman world, they were not available to the Germanic tribes who came to dominate all of Europe. Therefore our Germanic ancestors would not have known this history of who was a true Israelite. Josephus wasn’t translated into English until the early 18th century. That means that the true story of how the Edomites came to pretend to be the true Israelites became available to the white world only relatively recently. The Catholic Church, the Protestant Reformation, and Christendom as a whole would not have been aware of these facts. But now the historical proof has been made widely available and we can know with certainty who the Israelites are and who are posing as Israelites but are not.
In the past, our schools taught authentic ancient history and many students studied the classics. No more. These days, political correctness deems ancient history and the classics as “racist” and “white supremacist.” Instead of facts, students of all ages are force-fed a fabricated “multi-cultural” account of history in order to obscure reality. Now more than ever, it is imperative that we read the ancient historians of the Greco-Roman world in order to uncover the true history of our race and of the world. For example, we learn from these historians that the Middle East was populated by white people during their times and remained so until the Arab conquests. But now that our people no longer study ancient history, most believe that the Middle East was always populated by dark-skinned people; therefore, they more readily accept the lie that the Israelites were dark and swarthy. The majority of our people are stuck in this lie and can’t get out of it.
Homer lived in the mid-to-late 7th century BC, but he wrote about times long before his own. He wrote of the Trojan War in the early 12th century BC. He described the nations living among and around the Greeks. Significantly, Homer never mentioned the Dorian Greeks. He saw the Dorians as just one of the many tribes living in Crete, not in Greece. In fact, no Dorians lived in Greece at that time. Historian Thucydides states that the Dorians were brought to Greece by Heraclidae some eighty years after the Trojan War (see Thucydides’ History of the Peloponnesian War, Book 1). Thus we can determine the truth of the letter from the king of Sparta which was recorded in both Josephus and Maccabees: that the Dorians were in Crete because they were in the process of migrating from Palestine when the Trojan War occurred. This migration took place in the middle of the Judges period in ancient Israel.
Furthermore, when Homer described the characters in the Iliad, Peleus the father of Achilles, Achilles himself, and Menelaus the king of Sparta all had yellow hair. Hesiod also stated that Menelaus had golden hair in his Catalogues of Women, and he described Selene as “white-armed and bright-tressed.” He wrote that Demeter and Ganymedes were golden-haired in his Homeric Hymns, as well as Polyneices in the Thebaid. Speaking of Thebes, the women of the city are described as being yellow or golden-haired in the plays which the Tragic Poets, Aeschylus and Euripides, wrote about that ancient city. In the Iliad, Achilles is depicted as having addressed Phoinix as “old friend and father” because Phoinix was entrusted with raising Achilles as a child. In the Odyssey, the title character Odysseus had yellow hair, as did Rhadamanthus the son of Zeus, and the Phoenician Europa, the daughter of Phoinix. The wife of Odysseus, Penelope, had a “complexion…whiter than sawn ivory.” When Homer imagined the goddess Aphrodite had protected her son Aeneas during the fighting at Troy, he wrote that she had “thrown her two white arms about the body of her dear son. She protected him by covering him with a fold of her own fair garment, lest some Danaan should drive a spear into his breast and kill him.” Juno, the imagined wife of Jove, was frequently described as “white-armed Juno.” In both works, men are frequently described as turning pale with fear. So the heroes and even the gods themselves were all white.
Historian Strabo fully collaborates with Josephus’ accounts of the Judeans and Edomites living together after the Edomites had converted to the religion and customs of the Judeans. After their large-scale conversion, the Edomites became known as Judeans. Even Wiki admits this:
“After the conquest of Judah by the Babylonians, Edomites settled in the region of Hebron. They prospered in this new country, called by the Greeks and Romans “Idumaea” or “Idumea” for more than four centuries. Strabo, writing around the time of Jesus, held that the Idumaeans, whom he identified as of Nabataean origin, constituted the majority of the population of Western Judea, where they commingled with the Judaeans and adopted their customs.” And how it happened: “Judas Maccabeus conquered their territory for a time around 163 BC. They were again subdued by John Hyrcanus (c. 125 BC), who forcibly converted them, among others, to Judaism, and incorporated them into the Jewish nation, despite the opposition of the Pharisees. Antipater the Idumaean, the progenitor of the Herodian Dynasty along with Judean progenitors, that ruled Judea after the Roman conquest, was of mixed Edomite/Judean origin.”
Elsewhere, Strabo himself marveled that in Alexandria there were mixed races of people living together in one city, so that phenomenon must have been rare in the ancient world. Speaking of Memphis in Egypt, in Book 17 of his Geography Strabo says: “The city is large and populous; it ranks next to Alexandreia, and, like that place, is inhabited by mixed races of people. There are lakes in front of the city and of the palaces, which at present are in ruins and deserted. They are situated upon an eminence, and extend as far as the lower part of the city.” (17.1.32) Strabo never remarked like that in his descriptions of any of the other cities he detailed, so it is apparent that ethnic diversity was more or less peculiar to Egypt in his time, as Polybius had also attested.
Strabo is also baffled that certain Syrians are labeled as “White Syrians” and comments sarcastically “as if there were any black ones.” If there were no black Syrians then there were no black Israelites. The Biblical histories of Israel and Syria are inseparable because from the time of David and down to the time of Jeroboam II, Israel had ruled over much of Syria. So we read in the words of Moses in Deuteronomy chapter 26: “5 And thou shalt speak and say before the LORD thy God, A Syrian ready to perish was my father, and he went down into Egypt, and sojourned there with a few, and became there a nation, great, mighty, and populous….” The kindred of Abraham was originally from Padanaram, in the northernmost parts of Syria, and that is from where Isaac and Jacob had gotten their wives. Likewise, if the Phoenicians in Greece were blond, then the Phoenicians of Carthage were blond, and therefore the Phoenicians of Phoenicia in Palestine were blond because the only bastard mongrelized cities known to Strabo were in Egypt.
In the opening three books of Diodorus Siculus, he described the founding myths, kings, and culture of the Egyptians in Book 1, and then in Book 2 the history of Assyria, with descriptions of the surrounding lands of India, Scythia, and Arabia, and then in Book 3 the Ethiopians and Amazons of Africa, all among other things. But when the work is read, it is clear that Diodorus Siculus believed all of these groups to have had much in common not only in their religious beliefs and culture but also in their general physical characteristics.
However, there is an exception when he describes Ethiopia. Here he describes two separate groups of Ethiopians, one highly civilized and another complete savage and black: “they say that they [Ethiopians] were the first to be taught to honor the gods and to hold sacrifices and processions and festivals”, they quote Homer in reference to themselves (Iliad 1:423-424), they recount the unsuccessful invasions into their country by Cambyses and Semiramis, and they claim that the Egyptians were originally Ethiopian colonists, led by Osiris. The two types of their writing (like Egypt), popular or demotic and sacred or hieroglyphic, are described, and it is said that the sacred is common among these Ethiopians. Their priests were much like the Egyptians. They believed that their kings gained sovereignty by Divine Providence, their laws and punishments were from custom, and they practiced the same flight of refuge which the Greeks did, which was similar to the Hebrew Levitical cities of refuge. An Ethiopian king under Ptolemy was educated in Greece and studied Philosophy, and aside from a few odd customs, there is no reason to believe that these Ethiopians, whose physical characteristics were not mentioned, were anything but civilized, and not much different than the rest of “western” society.
In stark contrast to those cultured Ethiopians that Diodorus first discussed, beginning at 3.8.1 he says: “But there are also a great many other tribes of the Ethiopians, some of them dwelling in the land lying on both banks of the Nile and on the islands in the river, others inhabiting the neighboring country of Arabia [between the Nile and the Red Sea], and others residing in the interior of Libya [the rest of Africa – Sudan here]. The majority of them, and especially those who dwell along the river, “are black in color and have flat noses and wooly hair.” Here it is evident that Diodorus is describing the Nubians and other wandering black tribes of the region. He continues: “As for their spirit they are entirely savage and display the nature of a wild beast…and are as far removed as possible from human kindness to one another…and cultivating none of the practices of civilized life…they present a striking contrast when considered in the light of our own customs.”
So surely it is apparent here, that if we do not have a White culture in Ethiopia in an era not long before Diodorus’ own, we certainly have at least the remnants of one. Ezekiel chapter 30 lists Ethiopia among “all the mingled people”, and all of this fits very well with the picture of a once Caucasian but now adulterated Kush in that region.
Polybius accounts illustrate the connections between ancient Tyre and Carthage as late as 306 BC (3.24.3) when the Romans had made a treaty with the Carthaginians which included Tyre and Utica. Proving again that the Carthaginians came from the Israelite Phoenicians.
In Strabo’s 17th book he gains further evidence that the Greco-Roman world was a white world with non-Adamic only on the fringes of society, especially in Egypt and Ethiopia. Strabo quoted Polybius and wrote: “Polybius at least, who visited the city [Alexandria], was disgusted with its condition at the time. 2 He says it is inhabited by three classes of people, first the native Egyptians, an acute and civilized race; 3 secondly by the mercenaries, a numerous, rough, and uncultivated set, it being an ancient practice there to maintain a foreign armed force which owing to the weakness of the kings had learned rather to rule than to obey; 4 thirdly there were the Alexandrians themselves, a people not genuinely civilized for the same reason, but still superior to the mercenaries, 5 for though they are mongrels they came from a Greek stock and had not forgotten Greek customs. 6 But when this population had been nearly annihilated, chiefly by Euergetes Physcon, in whose reign Polybius came to Alexandria — for this king being frequently troubled by seditions exposed the populace to the onslaught of the soldiers and destroyed them — the city fell into such a state that afterward Homer’s line was really true — To Egypt is a long and dangerous road.”
When we sum up all the Historians’ accounts, views, observations, and perspectives we see that even the Greeks and Romans understood that there were Mongrel races in existence. They were restricted to the far fringes of society, particularly in Egypt, Ethiopia, and Arabia. Even the Macedonians who had come to rule over and revive Egypt after Alexander’s conquest had also begun to become mongrelized by intermarrying with the native Egyptians. The native Egyptians themselves who originally were white Adamic had been mongrelized by the Nubian invasions. Thus Egypt was doomed and with the Arab conquest, other Adamic nations would follow this fate.
The prophet Daniel gave an astonishing prophecy about the empires that would succeed Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon. The very last empire would be the Germanic tribes — the Israelites — and they would inherit the world. Nowhere in the Old Testament is history foretold in such a clear manner. The last kingdom is a race of people, not a church as many modern Biblical interpretations would have it.
King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream and sought Daniel’s interpretation. We read about the dream in Daniel Chapter 2:
“Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible. This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth” Daniel 2:32-35 KJV.
Then Daniel gave his interpretation of the dream:
“This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king. Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold. And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. And in the days of these kings, shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure” Daniel 2:36-45 KJV.
For context, we need to look at Daniel’s statement “Wheresoever the children of men dwell.” The word for men here is not “adam,” which refers specifically to the Adamic race. The word is “enosh,” which means man more generally. Evidently, not all the nations this beast would rule were Adamic. Then the prophecy states “shall bear rule over all the earth,” meaning that the scope of the rule is nevertheless limited to the Adamic world. The toes of the fourth part of the beast will crumble because “they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men.” Here the word for men is once again enosh. Hence we see that iron and clay represent two different types of men, Adamic and non-Adamic. The non-Adamic enosh were the descendants of the Nephilim, the Kenites, Rephaim, Canaanites, and other mixed races.
Since Nebuchadnezzar was the head of gold, then the other three parts of the beast — kingdoms which would arise after him — were the empires that succeeded him. The silver breast and arms were the Medo-Persian Empire (two arms for two tribes) which conquered and replaced Babylon. The brass belly and thighs were the empires of Alexander which conquered and replaced Persia. The iron feet were the Roman Empire. Rome eventually split into two capitals, hence the two legs. The capitals were Rome in the West and Constantinople in the East. So when Rome fell, the Byzantine part was strong and the Roman part was weak. The ten toes represented the ten Senatorial Provinces of the Roman people during the time of the empire. In these provinces, actions taken by the emperor had to be approved by the Roman Senate because those provinces belonged to the Roman people. All other provinces were Imperial Provinces controlled exclusively by the emperor as they had been conquered by the emperors. When Rome fell, the ten toes crumbled but much of the rest of the empire remained intact for longer under the Byzantines and the Germanic tribes.
For many centuries, apologists for Roman Catholic Church have offered misinterpretations in order to make the Church itself the fifth empire or kingdom. But throughout the Bible, only the children of Israel were promised a new kingdom that would ultimately destroy and supplant the beast empires. The Roman Catholic Church did not destroy those empires and certainly did not destroy the Western Roman Empire. Rather, the Catholic Church itself was a product of the Roman Empire! When we look for who contributed to and ultimately brought about the fall of Rome, we see the Germanic tribes. These so-called Huns, the Goths, the Vandals, and others were indeed the “stone … cut out of the mountain without hands” which “brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold.” So only the Germanic people and not the Roman Church could be the fifth and last kingdom of Daniel’s interpretation.
One by one, the extremity and scope of the empires were gradually shifting west with each successive kingdom. This was the result of the children of Israel gradually migrating westwards while at the same time, the other Adamic nations were gradually being mixed out of existence. Thus the “Adamic world” was moving wherever the children of Israel went, which was to Europe. The progression of empires westward went like this: Babylon ruled over the Middle East, Persia, and Anatolia. Alexander ruled Greece and the East. Rome ruled over Europe and only parts of the East. Finally, the Germanic tribes ruled in Europe and later they ruled the rest of the world.
These empires never ruled any majority non-white nations. They did not rule over Africa, China, primitive America, and so on. At Rome’s greatest extent during the time of Trajan in the early 2nd century AD, Rome ruled in Africa, but seldom for more than a hundred miles inland. So it is absurd to think that any non-Europeans were included in the statement that these empires would rule “wheresoever the children of men dwell.” Only white nations were the object of this prophecy, and these empires never ruled other races.
Furthermore, where it says “in the days of these kings,” we see the Germanic tribes migrating into Western Europe from the east in large numbers. Centuries later, they would become known as Christendom. Taken together, all of these circumstances prove our ancestors’ identity as the people of God. We are Daniel’s last kingdom that would become a “great mountain” and “fill the whole earth.” History proves that those predictions were fulfilled only by the European Israelites.
In the Old Testament, there are many promises and prophecies over and over again where Yahweh spoke of his intention to regather the dispersed Israelites. Israel and Judah were to be reunited. This regathering is also called the “new covenant” in Jeremiah Chapter 31: “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.”
Yahweh made the new covenant with the children of Israel in order to bring them back to Himself. Paul of Tarsus cited the passage from Jeremiah in his epistle to the Hebrews Chapter 8, and in Romans Chapter 9, he wrote that “the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises” were for the Israelites, whom he called his “kinsmen according to the flesh.” Paul was writing around 58 AD and Jeremiah had written centuries earlier and both stated that the new covenant was exclusively for the Israelites.
Paul said in Acts Chapter 26 that his purpose was for the hope of the twelve tribes; therefore, he brought the Gospel specifically to white people in Europe. Nowhere is it recorded that Paul brought the Gospel to brown or black or red or yellow people. After his conversion on the road to Damascus, he spent three years in Arabia and never thought to preach to Arabians or Egyptians or to go to Sudan or Ethiopia and preach to black or brown people. Paul said he wanted to go west, to Spain; he never once mentioned wanting to go east to India or China.
But doesn’t Scripture say that the Gospel is for “all the world”? Here we should explain certain words and phrases Christ used which are twisted to make it seem that He opposed the prophets and instead directed His message to all people and races of the world. Throughout His ministry, He uses phrases such as “all,” “everyone,” “whoever,” and “the world.” At the time of Christ’s ministry, the Adamic world had been replaced by Israelites. The Greco-Roman world was for the most part Israelite. Christ came from that world, thus where He says “all” and “whoever,” He is speaking in the context of that Israelite European world. When using context, someone can speak to a specific group and use terms such as “all” or “anybody,” but those words apply only to that specific group. For example: “Everyone needs to sign up for this meeting.” Obviously, “everyone” does not apply to everyone in the entire world but to people within the group being addressed. This is exactly what Christ was doing. He came only for the lost sheep of the house of Israel and was addressing only them.
Paul wrote in Romans 14:11: “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” Later Paul confidentially stated that “And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written.” This means that every Israelite will eventually accept the Gospel of Christ, whether in this life or the next. If people obey now, they have a reward waiting for them as everyone will be judged and rewarded for their good works in this life. Paul said to the Corinthians that when we die “If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.” This refers to the good deeds our kin do in this life. These good deeds will be stored up in heaven.
All this tells us that Christianity is the new covenant and its purpose is to regather the lost tribes. This new covenant was only for Israelites and Christ was addressing them only. When the Europeans converted to Christianity, they were the lost sheep of the house of Israel being regathered to their God. To say that Christ came for anyone and everyone is a type of Universalism and is a lie. Universalism does not gather the lost sheep; rather, it scatters them.
Like Hosea, Ezekiel made a remarkable prophecy about Israel’s future. Yahweh would join two broken sticks into one whole stick. The broken sticks were an allegory for the divided kingdoms of Israel. The prophecy shows God can do the impossible. A mere man can’t break a stick in two and then seamlessly join them together again. But Yahweh promised to rejoin the two broken sticks of Israel and Judah (the northern kingdom and the southern kingdom) back together into one stick. This would include all the dispersed Israelites from all the tribes. This one stick represents Christendom. Under Christendom, the Israelites were reunited under Christ, who is Yahweh our God.
Ezekiel Chapter 34 gives a description of Yahweh’s lost sheep who had wandered over the mountains. Ezekiel was writing during the Israelites’ captivity; they had been forced out of their land, had wandered, and were lost. Ezekiel Chapter 35 describes how Esau took for himself the lands that Israel and Judah had been driven out of. Stealing the Israelites’ land was an early step in the five-hundred-year process of the Edomites stealing Israel’s identity. This identity theft continues to this day and confuses many modern Christians. Ezekiel Chapter 36 promises reconciliation for Israel and continues to prophesy against Edom, the enemy who came to possess the “ancient high places.” In verses 8 and 9 we read: “But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to my people of Israel; for they are at hand to come. For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be tilled and sown.” It is speaking not of geographical mountains but of the twelve tribes in captivity. Then after further promises of reconciliation with Israel, we arrive at Ezekiel Chapter 37.
In this chapter, Ezekiel describes a valley of dry bones that come alive again. Allegorically, the lost tribes were walking corpses unless Christ came to save them, as it says in verses 11-12: “Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.”
In the days of Zerubbabel, Nehemiah, and Ezra, somewhere around 42,000 people from the tribes of Judah, Benjamin, and Levi, returned to Jerusalem to rebuild it with the permission of Cyrus the King. This was a small number of Yahweh’s people. But Ezekiel, Jeremiah, and other post-captivity prophets made clear that Yahweh God knew where the rest of the Israelites were. He had never abandoned them. The new covenant in Jeremiah was promised only to them. Ezekiel also spoke of this exclusive new covenant in the parable of the two sticks. In Chapter 37, Ezekiel gives the details: “The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying, Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand. And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these? Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand. And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.”
About 1,000 years after Ezekiel had written this prophecy, the dispersed and lost tribes were reunited into “one stick” in Europe when they began to accept Christianity. Even though these European tribes had many wars with one another throughout history, they were nevertheless all Christians united in Christ and were collectively known as Christendom. Continuing with Ezekiel:
“And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen [literally nations], whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel [not in Palestine]; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all: Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.”
So the children of Israel, long after their captivity, would continue to be the people of God, and He mentions no other people. They would be taken from amongst the other nations where they had been scattered and once again become a distinct people under their God. Ezekiel describes this kingship of Christ allegorically as the kingship of David who was a type of Christ in this regard.
“And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever.”
Then Ezekiel gives the promise of the New Covenant in Christ:
“Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And the heathen [or nations] shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them forevermore.”
Where it says “the heathen shall know,” the word for heathen is literally “nations.” This could refer to the actual nations of Israel, or it could refer to the other Adamic nations, which were elsewhere promised a share in the resurrection.
So the tribes of Israel and Judah were prophesied to become fully reunited in the Gospel of Christ under a New Covenant. But none of this includes the people of Judaea who rejected Christ, who are the ancestors of today’s Jews. Paul did not call them his “kinsmen according to the flesh” but rather, he explained that not all of them who were of Israel were actually Israelites. Furthermore, Yahweh never promised that Christianity would include any other people in the world, as we see over and over again the New Covenant of Christianity’s sole purpose was the reunion of Israel and Judah, the regathering of Yahweh’s people who can only be the Europeans.
Isaiah is the most quoted prophet in the New Testament and even Christ Himself quoted Isaiah. He is often referred to as “Esaias the prophet” no matter which part of his book is cited. A careful reading of Isaiah’s prophecies shows us that the children of Israel were destined to end up in Europe and become the Europeans. The first forty chapters of Isaiah are concerned with the coming judgments upon Israel, Babylon, Assyria, and other surrounding nations. The remainder of the book from Chapter 41 onwards was given after the deportations. These later chapters address the Assyrian’s failed siege of Jerusalem, what would happen to the deported Israelites, as well as the coming Messiah, Christ.
In the first forty chapters, many interconnections between the prophecies and recorded history prove that the Israelites were white, or more accurately, they largely formed the stock that later became known as European or Caucasian. Isaiah Chapter 2 makes references to the ships of Tarshish and indicates that the Israelites were still engaged in Mediterranean trade with Europe. Cross-referencing Ezekiel Chapters 27 and 28 and the lamentations over Tyre show that Dan and Javan traveled together and engaged in European trade from Tyre.
Isaiah Chapter 10:17-20 foretells the destruction of Assyria and the significant part the Israelites would play in its destruction: “And the light of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame: and it shall burn and devour his thorns and his briers in one day; And shall consume the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field, both soul and body: and they shall be as when a standard-bearer fainteth. And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be few, that a child may write them. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.”
Then Isaiah Chapter 11:10-14 prophecies the future of Israel after the destruction of Assyria and the regathering of ALL Israelites wherever they had wandered off to: “And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Nations seek: and his rest shall be glorious. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim. But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab, and the children of Ammon shall obey them.”
In that same chapter verse 16, an important reference is made to the Israelites of both captivities. These were the Israelites who came out of the Exodus but didn’t go with Moses (the Danaans and Trojans) as well as the Israelites who were deported by the Assyrians much later: “And there shall be a highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.”
Nineveh fell in 612 BC and the other cities of Assyria were destroyed by a coalition of Persians, Medes, Babylonians, and the Khumri or Kimmerians who in some records are called Sakae or Scythians but are the same people. Modern historians often severely try to play down the part the Kimmerians/Scythians played in this defeat of Assyria, or they claim that Kimmerians/Scythians came down from the north to attack Assyria. After the Assyrian Empire fell, many of the Kimmerians did not remain in Mesopotamia or Anatolia but traveled west through Phrygia and Lydia in Anatolia and sacked cities of the Greeks before crossing the Bosporus into ancient Thrace. These Kimmerians were the Khumri of the Assyrian inscriptions. No records exist of Jews or dark swarthy-looking people taking part in the destruction of Nineveh. The Kimmerians/Scythians must be the Israelites of Isaiah’s prophecy who would ultimately destroy the Assyrian Empire, which also confirms the archaeology revealing the origin of the Khumri as well as the testimony of Josephus.
In Isaiah Chapter 13:4, 5, and 17, we read a prophecy about the coming destruction of Babylon and the rise of the Medo-Persian Empire: “The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the LORD of hosts mustereth the host of the battle. They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the LORD, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land…. Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it.”
Many of the Khumri, or Israelites, had been settled in “the cities of the Medes” by the Assyrians. As Assyrian power declined, in the late 7th and early 6th centuries BC, the Persians became subject to the Medes. But under Cyrus, the situation was reversed and the Persians became the dominant partner. But many of the former Israelites, called Khumri or Kimmeroi and also Sakae or Scythians, remained in Medea and Persia long enough to fight in the armies of the empire, to serve in the failed invasion of Greece, and eventually, a portion of them called the Parthians arose and dominated and ruled the empire. Historian Flavius Josephus referred to them as the “Upper Barbarians” and the “the ten tribes … beyond the Euphrates … an immense multitude … not to be estimated by numbers.”
Finally, in Isaiah Chapter 14:1-2, we read that the Israelites would eventually become the dominant power: “For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob. And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the LORD for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.” When the children of Israel were deported by the Assyrians, the Medes and Persians who were subject to them would have been part of their armies. So later, when the Khumri or Kimmeroi had migrated into Europe over the ensuing centuries, Diodorus Siculus explains that the Scythians had taken people of the Medes and Assyrians and forcibly replanted them on the Black Sea and along the Tanais River which feeds it from the north (Library of History, 2.43). So the Biblical prophecies, and especially those of Isaiah, put together with the classical histories describe the beginnings of the formation of modern Europe and the Germanic people, as well as the western Slavs since the Sarmatians are often identified with them.
To simplify things, here is a summary of Isaiah’s many prophecies from Chapter 15 through Chapter 40. First, Chapter 15: against Moab; Chapter 16: against Damascus; Chapter 18: beyond the rivers of Cush (Mesopotamia), a reference to Israel in captivity; Chapter 19: against Egypt; Chapter 20: against Egypt and Cush (Ethiopia); Chapter 21: against Babylon once again, mentioning Medes and Persians; also Dumah (Ishmael) and Seir (Edom); Chapter 22: against the “valley of vision,” which is related to Judah and Jerusalem; the Persians mentioned again; Chapter 23: against Tyre and the ships of Tarshish; Chapter 24: against the land in general, which would be emptied, spoiled and wasted; Chapter 27: against Leviathan the serpent, at the end of the chapter mentions the two captivities once again: “they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt ”; Chapter 28: woe to Ephraim (10 tribes); Chapter 29: woe to Ariel (Jerusalem); Chapter 30: Israel should not turn to help from Egypt against Assyrians; Chapter 34: wrath against all nations “for the controversy of Zion,” lands to be desolate habitations of dragons, satyrs, owls, wild beasts, which are pejoratives for people; Chapter 36: historical records of deportations by Assyrians; Chapter 37: Assyrians also come against Judah and Jerusalem; Chapter 39: Hezekiah becomes friendly with Babylon, and future Babylonian conquest of Judah is prophesied; Chapter 40: conclusion of the first part of Isaiah in the comforting of Jerusalem in spite of the announcements made upon the city; and finally, the ultimate promises of redemption and reconciliation for Israel.
Isaiah Chapter 41:1-4 proclaims a future prophecy of the coming of Christ but speaks as though it has already happened. It also refers to the ultimate destination of the deported Israelites: “Keep silence before me, O islands; and let the people renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come near together to judgment. Who raised up the righteous man from the east, called him to his foot, gave the nations before him, and made him rule over kings? he gave them as the dust to his sword, and as driven stubble to his bow. He pursued them, and passed safely; even by the way that he had not gone with his feet. Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I am he.” Christ was called to come to His people from the east; Christianity was brought to Europe from the east, and the apostles traveled to the “lost sheep” of the twelve tribes from Palestine and to the north and west. In other words, the Israelites were in Europe already.
How else do we know these islands are in the west? Because Isaiah Chapter 11:14, for example, speaks of the Israelites and says “But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west,” however the Septuagint says “ships” and not “shoulders.” But much more explicitly, at the very end of Isaiah, Yahweh God tells us exactly where He would send the Israelites of the Assyrian captivity: “For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory. And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Nations.”
All of those places can be identified, except perhaps for Pul. Tarshish is Tartessus on the Mediterranean coast of Spain, which was described by Herodotus in the 5th century BC as a mercantile seaport even before the Trojan War. Pul only appears elsewhere as the name of an Assyrian king. Commentators try to confuse it for Phut, a Hamitic tribe often associated with the Lubim, who was on the coast of North Africa before the Phoenicians. Lud is the Lydians of Anatolia and northern Italy, where they were called Etruscans in later history. Tubal was a Japhethite tribe originally on the Black Sea near the Caucasus Mountains, but later, along with Meshech, driven north through the Caucasus into what is now Russia. Finally, Javan is the Ionian Greeks of Attica (Athens) and western Anatolia, although they also had settlements on the Black Sea and in the Danube River valley and Marseilles.
Thus we see that within three hundred years after Isaiah wrote, the Kimmerians and Scythians began appearing in and over-running all of these places: in western Anatolia, all around the Black Sea, Greece, northern Italy, and Spain. So we either imagine that half of Europe was overrun by negroes or Arab-looking Jews sometime after Isaiah had written his prophecies of the Israelites’ destiny, or we can realize that the Israelites were the Germanic Kimmerians and Scythians who were also called Sakae, whose migrations into Europe were recorded by the Greeks, and who were later called Galatae, and by the Romans, Gauls and Germans. They were the ones who fulfilled Isaiah’s prophecies about the destiny of Israel in Europe.
