“We have to mark the dream, and the dream is that Judea and Samaria will be part” of Israel.
So said hard-line politician Naftali Bennett on the 8th of October 2016.
Jews must “give their lives” to insure the annexation of the occupied West Bank.
This is not a new story. This story has been on going for almost 3,000 years and still Judea does not get the message. The ten tribes of Israel from the Northern Kingdom of Israel do not want to be ruled by or dictated to by the kingdom of Judea, or subject to their ongoing hegemonic ambitions not for a hundred years, but thousands of years. Surely by now, they should have got the message?
The Palestinians on the West bank and what Nafftali Bennett correctly calls Samaria, are the descendants of the Hebrews.
The so-called lost ten tribes that have never been lost. In the 1st century A.D. many of them converted to Christianity and followed the teachings of “Yeshua, the son of Joseph,” rejecting the Levite priesthood in Jerusalem, the Herod Kings and the Roman Legions. By 600 A.D. many of them converted to Islam. Now in the 21st century they find themselves in the same position that they were in 2,700 years ago and again 2,000 years ago.
What once was Israel became torn apart when the twelve tribes broke the Covenant and demanded a king.
According to the laws of Moses and Joshua of the tribe of Joseph, who established Israel, they should be governed by the law and a judiciary. A monarch of any sort was seen as idol worship. Kings and emperors even up until the fall of the Roman Empire were considered to be “gods,” the sons of the “gods” named after the planets in our solar system. Today anyone would think it is ludicrous to believe that you are a son of Saturn, Mars or Neptune and even more ludicrous if you worshiped a statue of these figures as “gods.” Worshiping a king, emperor or even a planet for that matter, is idol worship.
As God says to Samuel:
“…for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.”
Todate no archaeological evidence has been found for a “king David”as described in the Bible and they have turned the place upside down looking for it.
Or even the temple that was supposedly built by a “king Solomon.” David appears to have been a minor chieftain and the texts relating to Solomon originate from Egyptian texts during the time of Amenhotep III as do parts of Psalms and Proverbs. These stories are not part of Hebrew history at all but are Egyptian. As is the concept of monotheism itself which was begun under the reign Akhenaton, the Ten Commandments which have been summarized from the Egyptian Book of the Coming Forth of Day and even the Ark, many such Arks have been found in Egypt one in King Tut’s tomb.
You could go so far as to say that the First Five Books of the Bible are the books of “Tut-Mosis,” as Ephraim was part of this dynasty when his father Joseph married the high priestess and princess Asinath, who many have identified as Yuya and Tuya found buried together in the Valley of the Kings and whose funerary artifacts are now displayed in the Cairo museum along with their mummies. Is it any surprise then that they burnt down the Great Library of Alexandria in the 3rd century A.D. where thousands of documents were lost to the world that would have given us a better understanding of the origin of Biblical texts?
The temple which is described in the Bible as well as the temple that was built under Herod the Great was regarded as a pagan design based on many of those built during the Mittani kingdom which is now Syria.
As I fully explored in “Greater Israel And A Tale of Two Temples,” Herod’s temple is not in the design of the Tabernacle where all the people gathered together as a federated democratic system of governance where the law is the highest authority.
The temple built in Jerusalem was a pagan design reflecting an autocratic hierarchy of king, high priest, the nobility and the military where the law became subject to the whims of the rulers. If anything this temple broke the Covenant and everything that it stood for as we see in the second temple period with kings like Alexander Jannaeus and Herod the Great.
During the reign of Rehoboam in approximately 1,000 B.C., Israel split in two. The Northern Kingdom of Israel and the southern kingdom of Judea. During the reign of the Herod kings the same political acrimony between the north and the south prevailed. The northern “rebels” fighting for independence from Judea, the Herod Kings, the Levite priesthood and the Roman Legion.
In today’s world I believe they are the Zionist Jewish Bankers and politicians, the black nobility of Europe and Saudi Arabia and the Vatican with their army of Jesuit priests. Descended from Caiaphas, the Herodian Kings and Pontius Pilate all three who were banished to Gaul after the massacre of the Samaritans.
In 36 A.D. the northerners attempted to prove to the Romans their right to the title deeds of the land in the northern Kingdom.
This is in accordance with the establishment of Israel under Joshua and his division of the land into twelve tribes as opposed to being dictated to by Judea, the tribe of Judah, the Levite priests and the Herod kings.
The extract below is written in a negative light by Josephus, who was educated in Rome and who lived in the Roman Empire and recorded “Jewish” history as he saw it. Predictably he paints the Samaritans in a very negative light.
“For a man who made light of mendacity and in all his designs catered to the mob, rallied them, bidding them go in a body with him to Mount Gerizim, which in their belief is the most sacred of mountains. He assured them that on their arrival he would show them the sacred vessels which were buried there, where Moses had deposited them. His hearers, viewing this tale as plausible, appeared in arms. They posted themselves in a certain village named Tirathana, and, as they planned to climb the mountain in a great multitude, they welcomed to their ranks the new arrivals who kept coming. But before they could ascend, Pilate blocked their projected route up the mountain with a detachment of cavalry and heavily armed infantry, who in an encounter with the first comers in the village slew some in a pitched battle and put the others to flight. Many prisoners were taken, of whom Pilate put to death the principal leaders and those who were most influential among the fugitives.”
[Flavius Josephus, Jewish Antiquities 18.85-87]
Another example is Theudas, who was an Essene and belonged to the Theraputea. He along with his followers went to the Jordan river and re-enacted Joshua parting the water and crossing it to bring about the “New Kingdom” and return all of Israel to the political structure under Judges and the Judiciary as Joshua had founded it. He was beheaded along with the Apostles James and John Zebadee who were crucified. Again Josephus tells this story in the negative voice.
“It came to pass, while Fadus was procurator of Judea, that a certain charlatan, whose name was Theudas, persuaded a great part of the people to take their effects with them, and follow him to the river Jordan; for he told them he was a prophet, and that he would, by his own command, divide the river, and afford them an easy passage over it. Many were deluded by his words. However, Fadus did not permit them to make any advantage of his wild attempt, but sent a troop of horsemen out against them. After falling upon them unexpectedly, they slew many of them, and took many of them alive. They also took Theudas alive, cut off his head, and carried it to Jerusalem.”
[(Flavius Josephus, Jewish Antiquities 20.97-98]
These people were also the early “Jewish/Christian” communities and the Essenes who had parallel beliefs to Christianity where the story of the Teacher of Righteousness is a duplicate of the story of the life of Jesus, as are the texts in the Wisdom of Solomon 2, which describes the persecution of the Righteous and was written in the latter part of the last century B.C.in Alexandria in Egypt by a Hebrew community.
“Let us oppress the poor righteous man, let us not spare the widow, nor reverence the ancient gray hairs of the aged.
Let our strength be the law of justice: for that which is feeble is found to be nothing worth.
Therefore let us lie in wait for the righteous; because he is not for our turn, and he is clean contrary to our doings: he upbraideth us with our offending the law, and objecteth to our infamy the transgressings of our education.
He professeth to have the knowledge of God: and he calleth himself the child of the Lord
He was made to reprove our thoughts.
He is grievous unto us even to behold: for his life is not like other men’s, his ways are of another fashion.
We are esteemed of him as counterfeits: he abstaineth from our ways as from filthiness: he pronounceth the end of the just to be blessed, and maketh his boast that God is his father.
Let us see if his words be true: and let us prove what shall happen in the end of him.
For if the just man be the son of God, he will help him, and deliver him from the hand of his enemies.
Let us examine him with despitefulness and torture, that we may know his meekness, and prove his patience.
Let us condemn him with a shameful death: for by his own saying he shall be respected.
Such things they did imagine, and were deceived: for their own wickedness hath blinded them.
As for the mysteries of God, they knew them not: neither hoped they for the wages of righteousness, nor discerned a reward for blameless souls.
For God created man to be immortal, and made him to be an image of his own eternity.
Nevertheless through envy of the devil came death into the world: and they that do hold of his side do find it.”
The Essenes who were based in Qumram and Damascus rejected the temple in Jerusalem and everything that it stood for as did the early Jewish/Christian church of James the Righteous, the first Christian Bishop, and as did the Samaritans.
Jesus did not call himself the king of the Jews, the Romans did and mocked him placing a crown of thorns on his head. A man who was true to the Covenant, who had turned the devil down in the wilderness when offered all the kingdoms of the world and who had left for the hills when the crowds wanted to make him a king, would never have supported a monarchy.
Jesus never categorically says:” I am the king of the Jews.” To Pilate he says those are your words. “Thou sayist it.” The priests tell Pilate to write that HE SAID HE WAS THE KING OF THE JEWS. But Jesus never said that. He said his kingdom was not of this world. If it was he says, his servants would fight and he would not be delivered to the Jews. If this is not his kingdom, then he is not the king of this kingdom and is not the king of the Jews.
He calls the “Jews” the lost sheep . Why? Because they have built a pagan temple in Jerusalem that is not built according to the dimensions of the Tabernacle. They have installed a king, Herod, which is breaking the Covenant. ( 1 Samuel 8) “We have no king but thee God.” The lost sheep Judah, according to Jacob/Israel in Genesis tethers his donkey to the vine ( Joseph) when Shiloh came and Joshua established Israel. Judah’s donkey is handed over to Joshua in the OT and Jesus in the NT.
The Levite priests accused him of calling himself the son of God, which according to the Wisdom of Solomon, all the Righteous were considered to be and as John says in 1: 12 “>But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God,” as we all are, male and female made in their image as written in Genesis 1. A “god’of light incomprehensible to the human mind that is neither male nor female but both. The masculine “El” and the feminine “Ohim” that results in creation. The one “god”that is similar to the Native American Wakan Tanka and the African Unkulunkulu. It is certainly not a demi earthly potter “god”of the Nile who makes people out of clay as was Khnum and the inspiration for Genesis 2.
“Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, both now, and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amun”
Today the “Jews” want to rebuild the temple, are persecuting the Hebrews ( Palestinian Christians and Muslims) and Damascus (where many disenfranchised Palestinians have fled for safety from the Jews in the 20th and 21st century as did the Hebrews and the Christians before them) has been attacked by Daesh who is funded and supported by the Zionist state on the Golan Heights. I find it hard to even try to call them Israel- for they are not. The same situation occurred during the Assyrian invasion where Isaiah 17 refers to Damascus as Ephraim and Israel.
Naftali Bennett has called on “Jews” to sacrifice their lives and yet again take over the northern kingdom of Israel, as they did 2,000 years ago.
We have to ask: Who are these “Jews“who he expects to die for Zionism? Khazar converts from Eastern Europe? Or “Jews“who have a genetic link to any one of the twelve tribes of Israel?
If we use the Khazar converts as a yardstick, then Christian converts all over the world should also be given the “right of return,” as should anyone who has a genetic marker as do the Lemba in southern Africa that goes back to Israel before and after both the Assyrian invasion and the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem in 69 A.D. According to Steve Jones 75% of the world’s population have such markers. That would mean that 75% of the people on this planet have “the right of return.”
Today the ten tribes are persecuted and treated as less than slaves as they were after the Assyrian invasion, an invasion supported by the Judaites who were quite happy to stand by and watch their fellow countrymen slaughtered.
The ten tribes today are Samaritans, Torah Jews who never left the area in 2,000 years, Christians who go back to the 1st century A.D and were Hebrew converts and Muslims who were later converted with the rise of Islam. They are Palestinians.
Nothing has changed. It remains the same and it seems that there is very little chance that anyone is going to finally take the red pill and abandon this matrix of insanity. The answer is the same answer that was found 3,000 year ago.
A “Two State” solution, removal of the Illegal Jewish squatters on the West Bank and a return of the Golan Heights to Syria in accordance with United Nations Resolution 242.
Jerusalem should become an international city where the Jewish, Christian and Muslim quarters are respected. All three are monotheistic religions based on the Laws of Moses and the divisions of Israel as Joshua established them when Shiloh came.
