Did you know that Israelis have the second highest rate of melanoma in the world? Well they do (source). Melanoma is a fatal skin cancer that develops as a result of exposure to the sun. Just to give you a perspective on where Israel is located, here's a map. Notice how close it is to Africa. Something Doesn't Add Up According to the CDC black people have the lowest rate of melanoma and white people have the highest rates of melanoma. Here's a chart that comes from the CDC website (source). In the Bible the Hebrews spent almost their entire existence between Africa and Israel without any form of cancer treatments currently available in the modern age. Modern day Israelis are literally dying to live in Israel... which doesn't make sense if they're really the chosen people...
Over the years I've done a ton of Biblical research on angels, demons, giants, aliens, UFOs, etc., but nothing has been more exciting and rewarding than the research I've been doing for the last couple of years. The thing about becoming awake is that it's much deeper than many people think. Every time I thought I was awake, a new layer was yet to be pulled away. I thought I was awake when I first learned about nephilim in the Bible. Then I thought I was awake when I realized that aliens and UFOs were angelic deceptions. And now I feel awakened all over again, but knowing that there may be another level coming that I haven't foreseen yet. An awakening can only happen when something causes you to question the reality you've been presented with, and consider a comp...
Who were the Hebrews? What nationalities did they consist of? Why isn’t this taught in Sunday School? We’re about to answer a few questions and probably create a few new question in the process. With that said, let’s get to it: The Twelve Tribes of Israel In Part 4 we looked at the parental ethnicities of all of Jacob’s wives and sons. It is these same sons that will come to be known as The Twelve Tribes of Israel. So let’s take a look at each of the twelve sons and see who they chose as wives. 1. Reuben (Hebrew + Syrian): When the other brothers decided to kill Joseph, it was Reuben that intervened. According to scripture, Reuben slept with Bilhah, but the name of his wife is not mentioned. The sons of Reuben were: Hanoch (Hebrew + Syrian + ?) Phallu (Hebrew
Who was Ishmael married to and where did she come from? What ethnicity was Rebekah? What ethnicity were Rachel and Leah? Why didn’t Isaac approve of Esau’s wife? We have lots of stuff to cover, so let’s get this party started. The Lineage of Ishmael After Hagar fled with teenage Ishmael, the Angel of the Lord found them and blessed Ishmael. This blessing is going to become very important down the line. Just as Abraham was given the promise to become a great nation, so was Ishmael. In fact, God promised that Ishmael would have 12 sons, similar to Jacob. According to scripture, Ishmael was raised in the wilderness of Paran (Genesis 21:20), and became an archer. Depending on the source, the wilderness of Paran was located on the Western most part of the Arabian Peninsula
Did the lines of Shem and Ham mix? Did God bless this mixture? Who was Keturah? We’re going to get into some great information in this study, so make sure you pull out a pen and take some notes. Before we get started, just know that I’m going to use the name Abraham when referring to Abraham and his previous name Abram. Just wanted to get that out of the way before the emails started. How Many Wives Did Abraham Have? When we think of “Father Abraham”, we usually think of Sarai/Sarah and sometimes Hagar gets a mention. Let’s look at the list of his wives. Sarah (Hebrew + ?) Hagar (Egyptian/African) Keturah (unknown ethnic origin) While we don’t know the complete ethnic origin Sarah and Keturah, we do know that Keturah’s name means, “thick smoke.” Most times thic
What race was Noah? Did all races really come from Shem, Ham, and Japheth? What was the curse of Ham all about? These are just some of the questions we are going to attempt to answer in this study. If God really flooded the earth, how is it possible that all races currently on earth came from one man? As if the story of Noah wasn’t already unbelievable, but we are also expected to accept that all of the races currently on earth are directly related to Noah. Let’s start with the most logical question: How Many People Made It Onto The Ark? According to scripture, only Noah and his wife, Shem and his wife, Ham and his wife, and Japheth and his wife made it onto the ark. That’s 8 people total. This is also confirmed elsewhere in the Bible: “Which sometime were disobed
Was everyone in the Bible white? Could Jesus have been black? Who was the Queen of Sheba? Was interracial marriage forbidden? These are some of the questions that we’ve been debating on Facebook lately, and it prompted me to really dig into the subject. Introduction To The Series This series is going to be an intense and scriptural look into race relations in the Bible. It’s not about saying any specific person is any specific race, but a good, honest look into the subject. Far too often people like to avoid the issue of race in scripture because it challenges preconceived notions and long held beliefs that may not be true. Discussion and Debate Are Encouraged Links To Other Resources Are Encouraged Enjoy The Study At the end of each part in the series, you’ll
