The True Seed of Abraham
In preparation for this portion of our study of Revelation, I honestly wanted to skip over Revelation 1:14-15, due to the arguments over the flesh it seems to bring about, to which I have zero desire to get into (we have much more important things to discuss). Although after prayer and what seems to be nudges from Yahuah; it is time to expose those who glory in the flesh and claim superiority due to what they perceive as themselves being the true Israelite’s (they call themselves Black Hebrew Israelite’s), and that all others must recognize this to be part of the kingdom (lesser beings at that). For the three and a half years this ministry has been on YouTube, I have constantly been called a white Edomite devil, who has no right to read or discern the scriptures, as they are not for me, but them alone, or alongside this, being accused of not preaching the “full truth” as they say, for not teaching who the “true seed” of Yahuah are. After so many of these types of comments, I decided to research the matter for myself, for after all, I’m in pursuit of all truth, regardless of what that looks like; embracing Sirach 4:28:
“Strive for the TRUTH unto death, and Yahuah will fight for you.”
Another reason why we are exposing this:
1 John 4:20 “If a man say, I love Elohim, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?”
Hebrews 12:14 “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see Yahuah.”
I know not all who believe this doctrine hate their fellow man, but many do. This fleshly doctrine oozes racism and hatred, to which I do believe will keep someone from entering Zion and it is our mission to loose those who are in bondage to this lie.
First, it should be made clear, it does not matter to me what skin color we are! We are the true seed by faith in Messiah Yahusha! Beware of anyone who teaches superiority based off skin color, or being the “true seed” because of their race! My goal for this study, is to not glory in the flesh, but to free those who are held captive by this belief; that there is something to boast about in our racial genealogy.
Let’s review the scriptures, as with these short passages, I’ll include will clearly state that the Grace and salvation of Yahuah through Yahusha, is free to all men and women who believe and that this shouldn’t even be a topic of discussion, nevertheless, here we are:
Revelation 7:9 (The multitudes saved out of tribulation) “After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands”
Acts 10:34-36 “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that Elohim is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. The word which Elohim sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Yahusha Ha’Mashiach: (he is Adonai of all:)
John 7:24 “Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.”
Romans 2:11 “For there is no respect of persons with Elohim.”
Jeremiah 17:10 “I Yahuah search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.
Galatians 3:28-29 “There is neither Jew nor Greek (gentile), there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Messiah Yahusha. And if ye be Messiah’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise”
John 3:16 “For Elohim so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Ahmein and HalleluYah for the real truth of the real seed, which are those by faith in Messiah and keep his commandments!
What do the scriptures say regarding skin color?
Before we go here, I need to reiterate that I despise having to do this, but again, there is a large group of people claiming the heritage of the biblical Israelite’s based off their skin color, so as with all false doctrine, we must expose it by sharing the truth, and in his infinite wisdom, Yahuah thought it meat to express the color of his people and his Son, Yahusha Ha’Mashiach through the scriptures.
Yahusha: Revelation 1:14 “His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
Notice it emphasizes the color twice. It does not say his hair was the texture of wool, but the color, then continues to reinforce his complexion, being white as snow. Backing up to the beginning of that verse, it says his head was also white, alongside his hair. What do we do with that, other than take it at face value? Have we not learned our lesson with Biblical earth; pillars, unmovable, compass upon the face of the deep, etc..?
Revelation 1:15 ” And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace
The greek word used for fine brass: https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/Lexicon/Lexicon.cfm?strongs=G5474&t=KJV
“in the implied mean of whiteness or brilliancy”
“χαλκολίβανον chalkolíbanon, khal-kol-ib’-an-on; neuter of a compound of G5475 and G3030 (in the implied mean of whiteness or brilliancy); burnished copper, an alloy of copper (or gold) and silver having a brilliant lustre:—fine brass”
Fine brass looks like a dull gold: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=brass&t=ffab&atb=v158-1&iar=images&iax=images&ia=images
Brass in a furnace looks like fire: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQUXXP7Nw0U&t=2s
(Yahusha) Another witness: Enoch 46:1 “1. And there I saw One who had a head of days, And His head was white like wool, And with Him was another being whose countenance had the appearance of a man, And his face was full of graciousness, like one of the holy angels”
Let’s look at the patriarchs now:
Adam: Enoch 85:3 “Before I took thy mother Edna, I saw in a vision on my bed, and behold a bull came forth from the earth, and that bull was white (Adam); and after it came forth a heifer, and along with this (latter) came forth two bulls, one of them black and the other red.(Cain and Abel)
Often, it has been said that a white person cannot beget a black or red person, but they seem to be arguing with the scriptures as we see Adam begetting a black and red son.
Noah: Enoch 89:1 “And one of those four went to that white bull (Noah) and instructed him in a secret, without his being terrified: he was born a bull and became a man, and built for himself a great vessel and dwelt thereon; and three bulls dwelt with him in that vessel and they were covered in”
The Birth of Noah: Enoch 106 “1. And after some days my son Methuselah took a wife for his son Lamech, and she became pregnant by him and bore a son. 2. And his body was white as snow and red as the blooming of a rose, and the hair of his head and his long locks were white as wool, and his eyes beautiful. And when he opened his eyes, he lighted up the whole house like the sun, and the whole house was very bright. 3. And thereupon he arose in the hands of the midwife, opened his mouth, and conversed with the Lord of righteousness. 4. And his father Lamech was afraid of him and fled, and came to his father Methuselah. 5. And he said unto him: ‘I have begotten a strange son, diverse from and unlike man, and resembling the sons of the God of heaven; and his nature is different and he is not like us, and his eyes are as the rays of the sun, and his countenance is glorious. 6. And it seems to me that he is not sprung from me but from the angels, and I fear that in his days a wonder may be wrought on the earth”
It’s clear he was white, and it is possible that Lamech and the generations before were not (except we did see Adam was white), I’ll freedly admit that. It is also possible that Lamech was frightened simply because Noah spoke as a newborn and his eyes literally lighted up the room like the sun! I included this portion because I wanted to solidify that the colors of the bulls mentioned in the dream vision are literal. It is also interesting, that just as we saw with Yahusha, his hair was referenced as being “white like wool”.
Some will say that Noah was an albino, but we also know that the scriptures say:
“…Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations…” (Genesis 6:9)
Genealogy studies reveal that people with Albinism suffer from: Abnormal eye appearance and development, reduced protection from sunlight, miscellaneous survival disadvantages, reduced viability, and hearing disorders. This doesn’t seem to fit someone who is perfect in his generations; nevertheless, as we will see momentarily, the rest of the patriarchs were all albino as well, or they were white.
For further study on Albanism:
Let’s take a look at his 3 sons next.
Shem, Ham and Japheth: Enoch 89:9 “But that white bull which had become a man came out of that vessel (the ark), and the three bulls with him, and one of those three was white like that bull, and one of them was red as blood, and one black: and that white bull departed from them.” Even modern day genealogy admits that everyone on earth today came from a white, red or black man, HalleluYah!
Abraham, Ishmael and Isaac: Enoch 89:10 “10. And they began to bring forth beasts of the field and birds, so that there arose different genera: lions, tigers, wolves, dogs, hyenas, wild boars, foxes, squirrels, swine, falcons, vultures, kites, eagles, and ravens; and among them was born a white bull. 11. And they began to bite one another; but that white bull which was born among them begat a wild ass (Ishmael) and a white bull with it”
Abraham (the white bull) gave birth to the wild ass (Ishmael) and a white bull (Isaac)
Jacob: Enoch 89:12 “12. But that bull which was born from him begat a black wild boar and a white sheep (Jacob); and the former begat many boars, but that sheep begat twelve sheep.(12 sons/tribes of Yashar’el)”
Sarah: In one of the Dead Sea Scrolls, known as the Genesis Apochyphon, Sarah was portrayed as such:
“Her skin was pure white; She had long lovely hair; Her limbs were smooth and rounded (her thighs were shapely) She had slender legs and small feet; Her hands were slim and long and so were her fingers.”
I know not everyone submits to the authenticity of the Dead Sea Scrolls, but I found this to be interesting for our study. If this text is true, we must also recognize that Abraham was Sarah’s half brother:
Genesis 20:12 “And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.”
Laban: Genesis 29:16-16 “And Laban said unto Jacob, Because thou art my brother, shouldest thou therefore serve me for nought? tell me, what shall thy wages be? And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.”
Laban plainly means “white”. If this leads to his color, it would also imply that Rachel and Leah were both as well, alongside being related to Jacob; not conclusive evidence, but useful for our study.
David: 1 Samuel 17:42 “And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained him: for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance.”
Very similar to the birth of Noah, when we saw: “and his body was white as snow and red as the blooming of a rose”
Song of Solomon: Song of Solomon 5:10 “My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand”
The Hebrew word ‘tsach’ used here is interpreted as: “, tsakh; from H6705; dazzling, i.e. sunny, bright, (figuratively) evident:—clear, dry, plainly, white” Very similar to what we saw with the feet of Yahusha, denoting a dazzling brilliance. https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/Lexicon/Lexicon.cfm?strongs=H6703&t=KJV
Lamentations 4:7 “Her Nazarites were purer than snow, they were whiter than milk, they were more ruddy in body than rubies, their polishing was of sapphire:”
Taking a look at the word ‘whiter’: tsaw-khakh’; a primitive root; to glare, i.e. be dazzling white:—be whiter. https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/Lexicon/Lexicon.cfm?strongs=H6705&t=KJV
Verses used to rebut:
Deuteronomy 28:64 “And Yahuah shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.”
Many will say that this is describing the Atlantic Slave Trade of Africans, which was hideous in my opinion of how they were treated. ‘Slavery’ is all throughout the scriptures, but even in Yahuah’s glorious Torah, there are rules and protections in place for this. Biblical slavery is more in line with what we know as ‘Indentured Servitude’, to which this country was founded on; poor immigrants came to this country and signed a contract (typically 7 years, just as it was in ancient Yashar’El) and after the contract was fulfilled, they earned a portion of land, free and clear. Going back to Deuteronomy 28:64, the passage clearly states these slaves would not be bought. As hideous as the Atlantic Slave Trade was, the Africans were certainly bought, not fulfilling the scriptures, which is what we stand on and as mentioned earlier, we are taking them literally.
The link below can quickly re-brief you as to how the Slave Trade happened and even in the very first few paragraphs, it’s evident that they were bought.
Lamentations 5:10 “Our skin was black like an oven because of the terrible famine”
Once again, we must dig in as Bereans and see what the word really means and how it was used other times. ” kaw-mar’; a primitive root; properly, to intertwine or contract, i.e. (by implication) to shrivel (as with heat); figuratively, to be deeply affected with passion (love or pity):—be black, be kindled, yearn.”
Take a look for yourself with this link and see how this word was used in other verses, as it does not imply a literal black color: https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/Lexicon/Lexicon.cfm?strongs=H3648&t=KJV
Jeremiah 8:21 “For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me.”
Looking at the Hebrew word used for black: “ kaw-dar’; a primitive root; to be ashy, i.e. dark-colored; by implication, to mourn (in sackcloth or sordid garments):—be black(-ish), be (make) dark(-en), heavily, (cause to) mourn.” https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/Lexicon/Lexicon.cfm?strongs=H6937&t=KJV
Job 30:30-31 “My skin is black upon me, and my bones are burned with heat. My harp also is turned to mourning, and my organ into the voice of them that weep.”
Strongs for Shachar https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/Lexicon/Lexicon.cfm?strongs=H7835&t=KJV
We can see by this very verse that his skin was blackened for a reason and the rest of the verse points it out. Job 2:7-8 also share with us why: “So went Satan forth from the presence of Yahuah, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown. And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself withal; and he sat down among the ashes.”
But Moses was mistaken for an Egyptian. For this, I would highly recommend taking a look at a video done by Justin at Christian Truthers, who explores this question like a berean would! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FeiTScizOLE
So my conclusion remains; skin color should be of no importance to us, nor cause quarrels within the body of Messiah; recognizing the true seed are those who believe in Yahusha, the Word and begotten of Yahuah and keep his commandments, not a particular skin color or race. When you read opposing comments to this discussion, discern the spirit they carry and the fruits they bear, as this will be the most telling sign as to who is holding the truth.
John 13:34-35 “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
Blessings in Yahusha’s name and I look forward to seeing you all at the great gathering and marriage supper of the lamb!
