What Bible Study topic, subject, or chapter would you like to learn in more detail? We are opening those again now that the Father is once again, sending His Spirit to gather His saints once again for the last time; we feel the need to address questions.

Many of the questions are not asked clearly, but we’ll do our best to answer them as well as we can.

Today’s question is:

History of blacks in scriptures, was Yashua white or Black? Are Gentiles a people or nonbelievers, what do we do with the tithe, Clean or unclean animals does it still apply?

These are great questions that help people make the Bible real in many cases, but could also spark division and quarreling amongst people. I will take the peacemaker’s road in answering this. If it is not pretty evident in 2022 to people, I have no choice but to make this as plain as a peanut butter sandwich for everyone (and before I mail this out, I will have a 7-year-old read it and tell me he understands it).

We all then should have clarity in these subjects. First, all the sons of Adam are God’s children and the Creator loves all of His children and would that all would come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9). The Father, our Creator, sent Christ, to gather all the sons of Adam to Him and has absolutely no pleasure in the demise of the wicked (Ezekiel 33:11).

However, there is a protocol the Father, our Creator, follows.

This protocol seated Christ as the Head of the Holy Order, the Order of Melchizedek and He is surrounded by the very elect, the elect, the saints, and so forth. From the highest to the lowest, we are all equal in the eyes of our Father, the Creator.

When you do a deep dive and detailed study of the history of blacks in the scriptures, that question by itself is vague. Skin tones range; so by black people we have to effectively categorize people by families. In the scriptures, there is Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

The children of Israel come from the family of Shem. A portion of the children of Israel lives in every nation on the earth today. Some are awake, meaning, they know their identity, while most are still asleep. A larger portion of the children of Israel is on the continent of Africa and in the Americas.

Blacks in Scriptures and Was Jesus Black

The kingdom of Judah in Africa (majority in central, southern, and western, yet all over the continent). The kingdom of Israel is primarily in north, central, and South America. This may come as a surprise to many and a confirmation to others.

What is interesting is the country called Niger, Nigeria, Sudan, and Ethiopia all relate to being people who are black. In Acts 13:1 it says, “Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger,” meaning they were called or labeled as nigers (do not get funky with that).

Some people say just Simeon was called Niger. No, the church was called Niger. Just as the nation today called Niger, Nigeria, Sudan, and Ethiopia, to name a few, they all have names that mean “black,” to some degree. We would not lump these nations collectively and call them “black people.”

There are Black People and Black Categorized People

The people in those nations come from different families, clans, and tribes. Some are subgroups, some are completely different as in Ham and Japheth. Some are from the family of Shem, some from Ham, and so forth.

The people in the Americas, categorized as “black” people. Some of them do fall in the realm of being the children of Israel. More than anything physical, it is a spiritual thing and those with understanding know what that means (if not email us).

The second question is, was Yashua (Christ) white or Black? Christ came from the family of David, from Abraham, from Shem, from Enoch, from Adam. The most concentrated form of brothers and sisters today from the tribe of Judah (where Christ would be from) is in the Congo. Also in Gabon, Angola, Cameroon, and the Nigerian area, among other areas.

African Nations and Jews

No offense to anyone, but those nations have the largest representation of the modern-day tribe of Judah from our research. Keep in mind, the largest city and capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo is Brazzaville. Brazzaville is very familiar in lingo to a popular nation in South America known as Brazil.

Think of the Portuguese slave trade for the familiarity in the name (Brazzaville and Brazil). The capital of Cameroon is Yaoundé, which is Judah in modern writings. The capital of Nigeria is Abuja, which means Father-Yah (Abu-Jah / Abu-Aba-Abba and Ja-Jah-Yah as in Yahawah), and came from an earlier translation of Whydah (see the Negro Question Part 2 (tell him I sent you)). 

What I am saying is, essentially, these people on the continent of Africa, many of them, not all, are the same people who fled into the continent thousands of years ago after the fall of the kingdom of Judah. They are Judahites by clan or family but could be from any of the tribes that lived in the kingdom of Judah.

Blacks in Scriptures and Was Jesus Black

Therefore, Christ would resemble these people in physical appearance. This is not to anger anyone. Instead, it is to give a perspective that the world often, especially in times of old, did not consider.

The next question asks, are Gentiles a people or nonbelievers? The term heathen more so would be are nonbelievers, but the term Gentiles refers to the nations; the Gentiles can be believers, but in reference, they are all the nations outside of the children of Israel. Often times the Gentiles are thought to be the children of Japheth (son of Noah). In reality, they encompass all nations outside of the children of Israel.

The last questions are, what do we do with the tithe? We answered that in a previous post. Also, in regards to the clean or unclean animals, do they still apply? The short answer is an emphatic yes! It is better for your health and you are able to keep the Holiness the Father requires.

Leviticus 11:

45 For I am the Lord that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.

46 This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that creepeth upon the earth:

47 To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.

We want to be as our Father in Heaven, right? One step is by eating right as He commanded.

I pray this has been edifying in the name of the Son of God.
