not emotion, not senseless rambling, not even the overused and misused word "Love" but TRUTH. Most people are against the truth once it is not in their favour or likeness even while knowing that religious institutions and their beliefs are most times in conflict with each other, trying to make their institution real and others unreal or illegitimate. Most have it in their nature to dominate and control; some would even go to war to achieve their domineering goal.
There is a general concern that we, the Children of Slavery, who call ourselves the Children of Jacob and Israelites, are looked upon as though we are not real nor are we legitimate. Questions are always being asked when a black person says that he or she is an Israelite; questions like "Were you born in Israel? Or, are you a Jew? And if the answer is none of the above, the shoulder becomes cold. Others would sound a note of exclamation "really?"
How do we know we're Israelites?
and how can we prove it?
Without discrediting others who, like us, claim to be the people of the Book, we – more specifically the Israelite Nation World Wide Ministries - traced our ancestry through history, and through Biblical writings. For instance, in the book of Judges it is clearly documented that without a doubt slavery was God's way of punishing his children. Some do argue that almost every nation on the face of this earth experienced slavery. This statement might be very true. But there was only one nation of people that were enslaved according to the documented writings of the Bible.
Here we are in the Americas; led by the United States of America; the super-power giant which Biblically is indeed the new Egypt with the symbols of Egypt in every place of authority and/or power, even on their almighty dollar. (Symbols such as the Egyptian Obelisk and the serpent.) That nation was also given the power of Egypt. Our fathers did not need ships to travel from the old Egypt to the land of Israel, they walked, rode on asses (donkeys) or camels.
Can you see the Israelites in the Americas still hidden in the dark?
