Let us make clear that YAHUAH cannot lie. What He has spoken is true indeed.
Num.23:19, 1Sam.15:29, Ps.89:35, Heb.6:16-18, Tit.1:2.
Who are the Israelites? Where do they come from?
Read Genesis 1:11-27
Read Genesis 11:28-12:6 Arch-father of the Israelites
Read Genesis 15:1-6
Read Genesis 21:1-7
Read Genesis 25:19-26
The Israelites are special to YAHUAH; they are His chosen people. Ex.19:5, Deut. 7:6-9, 10:15, 14:2, 26:19, Deut.28:1, Ps.105:8-15, 147:19-20, Jes.41:8-10, Amos 3:1-2, Mat.10;5-6, Rom.11:1-2
What is the purpose of the Israelites?
The Israelites are chosen to live in the land Israel and from there reign over the earth and the Gentiles together with Yahusha Christ.Gen.13:15, Deut.34:4, Deut.4:5-8, Jes.14:1-2, Rev.13:9, Mat.5:5, 16, Rev.5:10, Rev.1:6, Rev.20:6, Dan.7:27, Dan.7:17-18. Zec.8:20-23,
Where are the Israelites now?
The Israelites are scattered throughout the earth. The four corners of the earth. Diaspora. Lev. 26:33, Deut.4:27, Ps.106:27, Deut.28:64, Deut.30:1-5, Jer.9:16, Jer.13:24, Eze.22:15, Eze.5:10, Eze.36:19, Zech. 7:14, Zech.2:6, Jer.30:11, Eze.11:16, Jer.18:17, Neh.1:8, Lam.4:16, Ps.44:11, Zech.10:9, Jam.1:1, 1Pet.1:1, Acts.8:1,4, 11:19-20
The 10 northern tribes of the Israelites have lived in Israel till 722 B.C.; in 722 B.C. the 10 northern tribes were then taken captive to the empire Assyria. That was the result of disobeying the laws that YAHUAH had given them. After the empire Assyria fell the 10 tribes crossed the river Euphrates and traveled 1.5 year by foot through Africa (Arsareth is Africa).
2 Esdras 13:45
"For through that country there was a great way to go, namely, of a year and a half: and the same region is called Arsareth."
They traveled 1.5 year through a country.
Nowhere it says that they sailed on boats/ships/rafts to America.
They did not travel 1.5 year through the ocean/sea/rivers to America.
Nowhere it says they traveled through the ocean/sea/rivers.
It says they traveled through a country. How do you normally travel through a country?
Through the land on foot.
Walking through Africa from east to west takes about 1.5 year
They settled and were fruitful and multiplied in Africa. Read Hos.8:1-8, 9:17, 2Kings 17:5-18, 2Esdras 13:40-48.
The other tribes Juda, Benjamin and Levi lived in Israel till 586 B.C.; in 586 B.C. Juda, Benjamin and Levi were taken captive to Babylon. Read. 2Kings 25:1-11 After 70 years in 516 B.C. they returned back to Israel. In 70 AD a small part of the Israelites fled from the Romans to Africa and multiplied there. The Israelites that stayed in Israel were taken captive and murdered.
In 1600, the 10 tribes and the 2 tribes, now in Africa, were taken captive and enslaved by Arabian, European and American sea traders. By ship they were taken to America (North, Central, and South). The Trans-Atlantic Slaves. According to the prophecy in Deut. 28:68. There the Israelites were slaves till 1863.
Their descendants are the so called blacks/negro's of North, Central and South America.
Now they are spread throughout the 4 corners of the world.
Now all the 12 tribes live in "freedom" but still not totally free from the curses of Deut. 28. Soon when Yahusha Christ comes the curses will be lifted up from the obedient Israelites. Deut.28:1-14, 2Chro.7:14, Zeph.2:1, Isa.34:16, Job8:8, Deut.32:7, Jer.4:1, Mal.3:7-18, 1John3:10-24, Zeph.3:8, Rev.20:4
How can you become an Israelite?
You cannot become an Israelite. An Israelite is born.
It is the bloodline of Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Juda, Benjamin, Epraim, Manasse, Issacar, Naphtali, Gad, Zebulon, Asher.
We believe that if possible, Israelites should marry within their tribe. Num.36:5-9.
The obedient baptized Israelites are the saints of YAHUAH. Ps.50:5
Israelites must focus on marrying Israelites.
According to scripture there can be exeptions:
According to scripture we can see that a marriage between an Israelite man and a Gentile woman is not forbidden. Only If she is fully submitted to the Israelite life. And she must denounce her Gentiles religions and ways. Num.12:1, Deut.21:10-14, Deut.23:7-8.
What about Israelite women marrying Gentiles?
In Lev.24:10-16 we can see that apparently an Israelite women can be married to a Gentile man. The danger in it is that their children can easily adopt Gentile behaviour. In this passage we can clearly see that her son was influenced by the ways of his Gentile father. Not understanding the Israelite culture. Contaminating the camp with Gentile behaviours.
An Israelite woman SHOULD NOT marry a Gentile man, because the Gentiles have no understanding. And cannot lead Israelites. How is that Gentile man going to lead her? Is he an expert in the laws of the Israelites ? Also their children will not be Israelites since the tribe is transmitted by that Gentile man.
That Israelite woman is not helping Israel.
She is building the nation of her Gentile man.
The Gentiles are all the people who are not-Israelites.
Children born out of interracial relationships of an Israelite father and a Gentile mother are considered "bastards/mamzers". Deut.23:2.
Study the word "bastard" in the Zondervan Bible Dictionary.
Also read Deut.7:3-4. Gen.24:3-4, Lev.24:10-16, Jos.23:12-13, Ezr. 9:2, Ezr. 9:12-14, Ezr 10:3, 11,19, Neh.10:30, 1Ki.11:2.
"Bastards/mamzers" are not Israelites but also not Gentiles. They are in between.
Based on Deut.23 and Deu.7:1-6, we can conclude that certain nations/people can never enter The Congregation of YAHUAH. Namely: Eunuchs (Deut.23:1), Moabites, Ammonites (Deut.23:2).
and the 7 Cananite tribes; namely: the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. (Deut.7:1-6).
Eunuchs and The 7 Cananite tribes can also never enter The Congregation of Israel.
Based on Deut.23:7-8 we can conclude that male children born out of marriages with a man of the tribe of Aaron and an Egyptian or and Edomite mother, could become full High Priest Israelites (Tribe of Aaron = The Congregation of YAHUAH) after 3 generations.
Notice a distinction between congregation of YAHUAH (the Levite family of Aaron)
and congregation of Israel (the 12 tribes of Israel). Num.16:9
Levite priest Korah wanted to enter the congregation of YAHUAH (High Priests), but he was not allowed, because he was not from the tribe of Aaron (tribe of High Priests). Num.16.
He was an Israelite from the tribe of Levi. BUT he was not from the tribe of Aaron.
Only after 3 generations "others" can enter the congregation of YAHUAH.
In the same way to become a full Israelite (of the 12 tribes=The Congregation of Israel) It must also take 3 generations.
That means that there is hope for the grand-children of 1st generation bastards (aka. mixed people/mulatto's) that had an Israelite father.
The 1st generation bastards will never be Israelites, they are called "bastards/mamzers", but their childrens children can be Israelites.
That means that "bastards/mamzers" can marry Israelites
Let us explain how a Gentiles can become Israelites after 3 generations:
An Israelite man that marries an Gentile woman.
Their children are 1st generation bastards
If the 1st generation male bastard marries an israelite woman and children are born, those children are 2nd generation bastards.
If the the 2nd generation male bastard marries an Israelite woman, the children born of them are 3rd generation bastards. They are considered full israelites.
They have the right to fullfill public offices within Israel (leadership functions).
Strangers (Gentiles) and 1st and 2nd generation bastards should take a humble position and attitude towards Israelites. They can not lead Israelites. Other than that they can still have a blessed life and future. Isa.56:1-8
A bastard female must find an Israelite man. Their children will be first generation bastards. And so on and so on.....
The Gentiles are to be taught by Israelites in everything of life. Why? Because YAHUAH gives his word first to the Israelites his chosen people. Ps.147:19-20. The Israelites, on their turn, must live and teach YAHUAH’s word to the Gentiles. Gentiles must accept this order of YAHUAH. Only then Gentiles will have a truly blessed life.
It is FORBIDDEN for Israelites to marry people with a different religion, because it brings idolatry in the house.(Ex. 34:11-16, Deut.7:1-6)
If a Gentile woman marries an Israelite man, the Gentile woman must fully submit to the laws statutes and commandments of YAHUAH.
And the Gentile must cast away its Gentile garbage religions/morals/standards/philosophy/principles/etc.
And be humble and submitted under YAHUAH, Yahusha Christ and the Israelites.
Gentiles / Bastards can not execute authority over Israelites
Gentiles / Bastards can not fullfill leadership positions in Israel
Gentiles / Bastards can not baptize Israelites
Gentiles / Bastards can not baptize Gentiles
Gentiles / Bastards must learn in silence
Gentiles / Bastards must not teach Israelites in public
