I believe knowing our history helps us to retain our self-image. And especially as Black people, knowing we are ignorant of our history, should be prompted and inclined to search for it. So I Do! When studying I also believe one must keep an open mind, but consistently keep it founded upon line after line precept after precept.
I have been writing a workbook for children (gathering facts for like 4 years!) Information recently released (to us within last 100 years), regarding the excavations of tombs in Eqypt, is one of the topics I discuss, and it brings me to believe the study of archaeology should be noted as being very important…Most times, when I begin to study, I find the study of this information to be familiar and enlightening. We have been traditionally taught to believe that things from this region of the world were accursed; should not be touched or thought about and even broken. But did you know that these are the same symbols, instruments, tools, etc. that are used against our children in projected images through the current music, arts, culture. Original Natives of the land kept these burial sites holy and protected as long as they could. (The oral and written histories of many noted griots contain facts regarding some of the earliest of temple raidings.) There exists from these raidings, a vast array of instruments, paintings, jewelry, artificats, weapons etc. from as far back as 1500 BC (before the birth of Christ)! (for example, we show the children a common guitar, and compare it to one found in a tomb, that now sits in a museum.)
Do you think the study of this information could improve the quality of our lives now or ever throughout our generations? If so, why would Now, not be the right time to learn about and teach the true nature and origin of these facts and events to our children? (This video was fun to watch… 🙂
The 12 tribes of Israel are listed in Ezek 37:16-17 & Rev 7:4-8
The Blacks in America and the West Indies are not Africans but Israelites. Unlike Hollywood portrays when the Children of Israel were in slavery to Egyptians they were Black Egyptians that enslaved Black Israelites. The reason many Blacks in America think that they are Africans is because they have been taught lies by the so-called white race. When the Romans destroyed the temple for the second time in 70 A.D. many Israelites fled into West Africa and other regions. 1600 years later those Israelites were sold into slavery by Africans and Arabs to the so-called white man into the West. The Blacks in America must stop going by these bywords ( i.e. African American, colored , Negroe ). You are Israelites from the tribe of Judah and your brothers in the West Indies are from the tribe of Benjamin. YOU ARE NOT AFRICANS YOU ARE DIFFERENT. (Exodus 11:7) “..That ye may know how the Lord doth put a difference between the Egyptians( Africans) and Israel.” The Africans are guilty of enslaving us as did all of these other nations and will pay according to the Bible
According to Deuteronomy 28:15-68 and 2nd Esdras 13:40-46, the 12 tribes of Israel are those descendants of the so-called black people of America, the Caribbean Islands, and the Indigenous people. The Israelites are now scattered throughout the four corners of the earth because we did not continue to keep the laws, statutes and commandments of the Lord thy God.
One can identify who the children of Israel are by the curses of Deuteronomy 28:15-68 and Leviticus 26:14-32. Deuteronomy 28:45-47; which also explains that these curse would be repetitive as a sign of who we are.
(Ezekiel 39:23) “And the heathen ( all nation that are not Israelites) shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore I hid my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so they fell by the sword.”
(Deuteronomy 28:68) ” And the lord will bring thee into Egypt (meaning bondage) again with ships…and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bond women…” How do we know that Egypt is speaking of bondage and not the land now called Egypt? Because Jacob and the 70 souls walked in to Egypt. They did not go in ships. But this captivity is speaking to of us being brought to America and the West Indies. ( Exodus 20:2) ” I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage” Egypt is the house of bondage.
