Jacob (left) prophesies the future of his sons' descendants, the Israelites. When we come to the twelve sons of Israel who founded the Twelve Tribes of Israel, the Bible only mentions that Judah and Simeon married Canaanitish daughters. The terms "Jews" and "Samaritans" largely replaced the title "Children of Israel" 43 as the commonly used ethnonym for each respective community.
Unsurprisingly, these ideas are very popular among anti-Semites but they have even caught on in some Christian circles, suggesting that the Jewish people are unrelated to the ancient Israelites, and have no real history in Israel or connection to the land.
Even Hebrew Israelites (present day so-called African-Americans) are sometimes physically similar to Africans. A Samaritan, on the contrary, while being both a Hebrew and an Israelite, is not a Jew. Time, just like the word says, would be the case for Yah's True People.
Two main claims are made by this religious movement: (1) All African Americans are the biological descendants of the ancient Hebrews, and (2) The means of salvation for African Americans is obedience to the Law of Moses. In the Set-Apart Scriptures it clearly states the nationality of African Americans.
Hebrew Israelites believe righteousness is achieved by law keeping. Then Moses picks up his staff, leads them out and they—the Jews—settle in Canaan, forming the 12 tribes of Israel. Furthermore, the claim that all African Americans are Hebrews ignores the historical and scientifically verifiable fact that African slaves were brought from a multitude of diverse countries in Africa.
This snippet, courtesy of the History Channel tells us that African Americans are the people of the Set-Apart Scriptures-THE MOST HIGH YAHUAH'S CHOSEN PEOPLE, ISRAEL the REAL and TRUE HEBREWS. There was 6th Century A.D. British Historian Gildas named the Wise” who wrote of the Saxon invasion (these Israelites).
The same site says, A history of slavery (abolished in 1873) and plantation agriculture has left a significant population of African descent in Puerto Rico, sometimes referred to as gente de color (people of colour),” and I quote this mainly to prove that the Afro-Puerto Ricans being discriminated against are also descendants of slaves.
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan June 26 delved deeply into the subject, using the words of his teacher, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, biblical prophecy and an analysis of historical data to solve the mystery and declare: The prophetic children of Israel are not living diaspora in the modern Jewish state in the Middle East but are, in fact, the Black man and woman of America.
Jacob seemed to have a harder struggle than did Abraham wrestling with the beliefs of "the flesh and the devil," but he made his demonstration and prevailed with God or Truth and that is why he was called Israel. It is not intended to be an all-out rebuttal; I'm writing more in the vein of heads up, coming at you.” In the future, I'd love to tackle some of the truth claims Hebrew Israelite adherents make.
We do not hate the precious people who claim to be Black Hebrew Israelites. Also, Lamentations 5:10 describes the Israelites who had skin as black as an oven. Deuteronomy 14:2 For thou art an holy people unto the "I AM" thy God, and the "I AM" hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto Himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.
