THE TRUE STORY OF THE TRUE HEBREWS HAS NEVER BE TOLD.

TRACING SOUTHERN AFRICAN TRIBES.

KEY VERSES; Deuteronomy 28:15-68 and Leviticus 26:14-39
DISOBEDIENCE / CONSEQUENCES
We begin by saying that the Hebrews disobeyed God to just cut the whole story short, because we have so many things to talk about. When you read the scriptures, it will show you what God said was going to happen to the Hebrews as the consequences of their disobedience to the instructions of God. The word of God was fulfilled against them.
By 722BC, the northern kingdom of Israel was conquered by Assyrian and all the ten tribes of Israel were taken to captivity, but others escaped and Most of them came to Africa. (2king 17). Only Judah and Benjamin in the southern kingdom remained.
Judah also sinned and was captured together with Benjamin by Babylon in 580BC (2king 24 and 25). During this capture, vers 26 of chapter 25 shows us that a great number of Jews came to Africa.
We should not forget the ten tribes who ran away years back and have already settled and moving to new places in Africa. The notable ones among the ten tribes are; Dan, Gad and Asher.
Judah was in captivity for 70 years according to Jeremiah 25:11-13. Then came back to bring forth the messiah Jesus Christ. (BC3-AD33).
Again in AD70, Judah was conquered by the Romans and the Temple Burned down (Mathew 24:1-2).
But before the destruction of the temple and scattering of Judah again, the Romans and the descendants of Edom or Esau took over the running of the Temple and kingship was given to the Edomites.This is the reason why Herod was not a Jew but a mixture between the Romans and the Edomites. They had intermarriages between them. In short, Herod was a descendant of Edom.
We have seen that Judah was dispersed from the promise land when the Temple was destroyed in AD70.
Also when we reflect back in Babylon, we see other members of the ten tribes who became part of Judah. This happened after Assyria was conquered by Babylon. The scripture shows us that some of them failed to trace their clans and they were considered the lost tribe of Israel (Ezra 2:59, 62).
Those who managed to trace there family roots, can also be seen in the new Testament of the bible. A good example is Ana who was from the tribe of Asher (luke 2:36). The other example, are the twelve disciples of Jesus Christ who came from the ten tribes except Judas Iscariot who was the only one from the tribe of Judah.
This picture we are seeing here does not mean that all the clans from the ten tribes of Israel became part of Judah whilst in Babylon no. Most of them ran away from being captured by Assyria first and then Babylon second. For example, Jeremiah did not go into captivity in Babylon, but went to Egypt and many others ( Jeremiah 29:1, 43:1-
What we have just stated briefly is the consequences of disobedience according to what God told them in Deuteronomy, Leviticus and what Jesus Christ said in Mathew 24:1.
Now that they are scattered in all the four corners of this world, how can we know and identify the true Hebrews/Israelites of the bible? This question will take us back to the old testament of the bible. Elliot smith, ethnologist states that, “The Hamites and the Semitic people were virtually indistinguishable”. It is important to look at HAMITES and SEMITICS people because this is were the BANTU, NIGROES and NILOTIC people came from. HAM and SHEM were black people and we shall see how the inter married between them occurred through out the bible and not any other races. We shall look at their movements according to the bible.
According to Deuteronomy 28, one of the key signs of knowing the true identity of the real Israelites is slavery. Vers 46 puts it very clear that; “they shall be upon you for a sign….”.
Therefore, Africa stands as a better place to trace the true Israelites since slavery was one of the activities which was taking place. Many people were sold as slaves to all corners of this world. This matter should draw the attention of all theologians, historian, anthropologist to research more on African tribes. When you look at the whole passage of Deuteronomy, it will give every reader a picture of Africa were such curses are part of its people. About 80, 000 Africans crossed the sea in chains in the 8th centualy.
OTHER KEY FACTS ON THE IDENTITY OF ISRAEL.
Robbe Simon Altaf states; “Don’t fall for the typical argument of a Jewish Cohen blood DNA test. It proves nothing….this is only a distraction and smoke screen which does not prove anything. The real Hebrews test is your ancestry where you originated from Africa such as Ghana, Niger, Sudan, Nigeria, Chad, South Africa, Congo and some other countries there which likely prove a true Hebrew. If you were in Iraq, Afghanistan, Parkstan, India enslaved in Europe, Caribbean Islands, America, Brazil and Portugal then you are likely a true Y’sraelite”.
We agree with smith who started that the Hamites and Semitic were same in appearance of color. It was difficult to distinguish between the two. Simon also commented that blood DNA test can not tell the real black Israelites. In our understanding, it is so, because the two people; Hamites (Ham) and Semitic (Shem) people had intermarriages between them as earlier stated. No any other race was involved in any marriage arrangements through out the bible, except for Ham and Shem descendants. Today, we can rightly say, they are almost one people.
The name HAM the youngest son of Noah means Burnt, hot, black and brown.
SHEM means; who a person is eg, name or fame. SHEM in English is the same as NAME. ( The SHEM of God is YAHWEH). (A good SHEM is better than money). A good NAME is better than money.
The meaning of JAPHETH the oldest son of Noah is; Enlargement. May he expand. May he give ample room.
When we first look at Judah ( Yehudah) means praise or honourable the fourth son of Jacob, married Canaanite women from Ham. All his descendants followed the same way. Even his mother Leah was a black Canaanite woman. (Gen 10:6, Gen 38:6). Her name means tired cow. Actually, many bible comentetor describes Leah to be very agly. In this case, all those claiming to be of tribe of Judah (Yehudah) should or must now acknowledged their Canaanite roots of black people through Ham, or be plainly seen as imposters planted by a certain race to cheat to the rest of the world that they are true identity of a real Hebrew (Simon Altaf). The name Judah came after the Canaanite city called Jehud ( Joshua 19:45).
A MIXTURE OF ISRAEL AND CANAAN CONTINUES
Judges 3:5-6 says, that Israel dwelt among the Canaanite….. and they took their daughters to be their wives and gave their daughters to their sons and served their might ones. This kind of mixture can make the two become one and since they were all black.
WHO ARE THE CANAANITES?
The Canaanite came from the first son of Ham and these are; Sidon, Hittite, Jebusi, Amori, Girgash, Havi, Ark, Sin, Arvad, Zemari, Hamati. Their location is as follows;
- Sidon-helped to build the temple of Solomon (1kings 5:6).
- Hittite-two tribes came out; one in Syria ( Joshua 1:4). Other in Judah ( numbers 13:29).
- Jebusi- found in the mountains of Judah mixed with Benjamin (numbers 13:29, judges 1:21).
- Amori-mountain of Judah and alies with Abraham (Abram) numbers 13: 29 and Genesis 14:13. They became servants of Solomon (1kings 9:20-21). There sons were fathers of ancient Jerusalem.
- Girgash-close related to sidonians (Phoenicians).
- Hivi-Judges 3:3
- Ark-Joshua 16:1-3
- Sini-north east labanon.
- Arvad; Phoenician Island of north Syria coast (Ezekiel 27:8).
- Zemari-South west Lebanon.
- Hamati- This is a Canaanite tribe found in the northern Syria of the City of Hamati the 11th son of Canaan. They were deported in to Samaria by Shalmaneser, king of Assyria in the place of the Israelites half tribe of Manasseh, to re people the city of Samaria. This was after the Northern Kingdom of Israel was captured in 722BC. In our earlier comments, we stated that not all the clans and family of Israel were captured. Many of them decided to escape and the notable one is the tribe of Dan who descided to ran away 10 years earlier before the capture of Israel. This tribe did not want to go to Judah for safety, because the northern kingdom ( Israel) was at war with Southern kingdom ( Judah) at that time. Shortly after that, other tribes followed namely Gad and Asher (2kings 17:24, 17:30).
- A’bari- A Canaanite tribe of the ancient land of Canaan were Abraham descended. Ha-A’bari ( the Hebrews) Genesis 14:13. It was at mamre which is located in the southern Canaan ( Judah) Genesis 13: 18. This is a place where YAHWEH appeared to Abraham (Abram) and promised him a son Genesis 18:13. This southern part was taken by Judah and Israelites married women from southern Canaan.
TRACING THE MISSING LINE AS WE LOOK AT SHEM.
Attention to all theologians and historians about the missing geneology of Qeynan/Canaan has finally been corrected from the Septuagint as this piece was omitted by the masorets which has created a conflict in that the sixth son of SHEM was QEYNAN. These masorets as part of a scheme acted in unlawful by omitting and changed many things such as the Name YAHWEH to Adoni and YAHWEH will punish in his own way. ARPKSHAD was not the Grand father of SHALAKH but its QEYNAN /CANAAN. This geneology show us very clearly that ABRAHAM was a NILOTIC PERSON and a person of a BLACK SKIN COLOR as that was the SKIN COLOR of QEYNAN /CANAAN who was the great grand father of ABRAHAM. Compare Genesis and Luke 3:34-36.
The twelfth son of Canaan the son of Ham is also missing (Beresheeth or Genesis 10:15-18). We shall look at this next time.
when Bantus came to Africa, they controlled west, central, east and Southern Africa. They took all the forest to pygmies to avoid the spreading of Islam. Those from the west joined Bantu gala in the forest to shield against Muslims. And they called themselves bar-kongolo in DRC. Bantus’ also called themselves yahounds. (yehud-Aramaic Hebrew) meaning ‘judah’ which is the same capital of Cameroon to day (yahounde).
Most of the tribes in Zambian and Southern Africa can trace their roots from West and east Africa. Most of the tribes kept the samba (Shabbat) which is still being practice in Brazil and Cuba. Others have kept the circumcision of male’s among African tribes ; others lost the tradition.
Most of them were killed if they kept Shabbat. Bantus were also given a title by the Muslims as the “people of the book”. This is because the arabs stated trading in slaves 1,000 years before the European slave trade. Hence, informed the Portuguese about the people of the book, a people cursed by God and predestined as slaves (Deuteronomy 28: 15-68).
The Muslims also called the western Sudan yahoode which means, “the lost tribes of Israel”. These Hebrews were also led captive in to many African nations by many indigenous tribes on the west and east coast of Africa. Some were sold on the basis of losing in a war. Tribes men would sell Hebrews directly to Europeans and Muslims.
The word “Kongolo” ancient ‘koungelo’ is derived from two Hebrew words; In this case, we have “kun” meaning established and “gelo” or “golo” means exile, today It is called CONGO. 95 to 99 of Bayithu or Bantu slaves came from the following places along the Atlantic and Indian oceans.
- Zanji land or Zanzibar in Tanzania is one of the first places were slaves came through and more accuracy is needed to determine the percentage.
2.Congo DR and Angola 39.4%
- Southeast Africa Mozambique and Madagascar 4.7%
- Nigeria delta, Cameroon, Equatorial Guine and Gabon Bantu slaves 14.6%
Senegal and Gambia 4.8%
Guinea, Guinea Bissau and Sierra Leon 4.1%
Liberia and Ivory coast 1.8%
Gold coast (Ghana and Ivory coast) 10.4%
HERE IS A BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE ORIGIN OF THE NEGROES.
- Nilotic (Abraham). Are also known as “Natufian”
This is what prophet Ezekiel says once more; “And say, that says master YAHWEH to Yerushalem; your birth and your nativity is of the land of Canaan; your father was an Amorite, and your mother a Hittite (Ezekiel 16:2). These two who have been mentioned in this verse are black African races from which Israel descended, who travelled to east to settle in Canaan before the place was finally given a name “ISRAEL”.
One of the historian by the name of Ella Hughley, wrote about black Biblical Hebrews -Israelites. He brought out and summarised very important details of this hidden subject. She said as I quote, “many of the Israelites….who managed to escape their persecutors during the Roman-Jewish war subsequently migrated to west Africa, and 16,000 years later, their descendants were captured and brought to America in chains by cruel slave -traders”. She was quoting a Jewish historian, Josephus from his book, ‘ The great Roman -Jewish war: 66-70. This historian wrote about the Jewish dispersion and captivity. (“Generally Vespasian and his son Caesar Titus fought- against the Jews. Millions of Jews fled into Africa, among other places, fleeing from Romans persecution and starvation during the siege.”.
Dr. Yosef ben-Jochannan writes; ” There are many Hebrews (Jews) tribes that were of indigenous African origin, these African Jews were caught in a rebellion in Cyrene during 115 CE. This rebellion also marked the beginning of a mass Jewish migration south ward in to Sudan of west Africa”. He again said that; ” In north Africa, just before the period of Christianity’s legal entry into Rome-due to Constantine ‘ the great conversion in the 4th centualy’- there were many Hebrews ( Jews) ‘tribes’ that are indigenous African Jews ( the so called ‘Negros’ ) origin….were caught in a rebellion in Cyrene….against the Roman imperialism and colonialism”. Now the question which we should ask is that; IF THE ORIGINAL JEWS WERE BLACK, WHERE DID THE WHITE JEWS COME FROM? This is more proof that many Hebrews are in Africa and some crossed the Atlantic and Indian oceans as slaves. For this reason every African America has some Israelite ancestry in their family tree whether he or she knows it or not.
Few years ago, some black Americans were trying to do some DNA test to help them trace their roots in Africa; it was discovered to be true, because some were being linked to WEST AFRICA, ,CONGO, SOUTH AFRICA and SOUTHERN ZAMBIAN at place called NGOMBE ILLEDE-a TONGA word meaning “a SLEEPING COW”. This shows that ngombe illede was also used for slave trade, for both Atlantic and Indian oceans way. And according to latest discovery at the site ( July,2016). The national heritage conservation commission excavated a skeleton believed to have existed between 700AD and 1100AD.
HERE IS A STATEMENT OF FACTS ON HEBREWS
. There are two main families in Africa: HAM AND SHEM.
. Shem and Ham are both Africans by land mass.
. Shem and Ham are both Black, brown, light/dark brown -skinned.
. Not all blacks are Hebrews; but Bantu and Nilotics are. Which means Bantu and Nilotic people are Nigroes.
. The race of Africans corresponds to Hamitic tribes who covered an exclusive plot of land mass given to them by their ancestors.
. However, since both Sham and Ham have shared this common Africa land mass since the flood, and since Noah, Enock, and fathering partriarchs have walked and lived on Africa before the flood, before there was an African Ham and Shem, then it is correct to call them Africans in the sense of land mass and not race.
. To identify people you have to be able to understand the migrations and regions these people came from. What family do the negroes belong to? Answer is Bantu and Nilotic people.
.The Nilotic Nigroes people are the progenitor of the Bantu Nigroes. The Bantu is an admixture of Asiatic fraction.
.The Bantu and Nilotic people suffered slavery and the word Bantu is derived from Hebrew word Bayithu-ELAH
.Therefore, Israelites are a Nigro people and not any other race which is not connected to Abraham.
. The original Arabs were mostly black races and Joktan is the real progenitor of Arabs. They are dark skinned whom rarely show on tv today.
. The original Arabs were both a Nigro Hebrew and African Ethiopians. This means that the descendants of the pharaohs’ of Egypt are in Africa among different tribes.
. This means Edom or Essau is a negro and Ishmael is also a negro.
.The sons of Abraham by keturah whom he sent to the country far east, away from Isaac are also negroes.
CONVERTS TO JUDAISM
May we further explain that the Ashkenazi Jews from eastern Europe are converts to Judaism. This was during the invasion of the Greeks and the Romans in Israel. Unknown percentage of Ashkenazi Jews have been mixing with Edom blood lines. Therefore, it is correct to say that the Ashkenazim Jews are both gentails and Edomites. They are both Nigroes from mixing with Edom and gentails from their original antiquity and home land of Ashkenaz the first son of Gomer who was the son of Japheth. On the other hand it is again not correct to call all the Ashkenazim negro Hebrews of Edom stock.
The Sephardim Jews were also converts that mixed with Negroes from the geneology of Edom and a very small percentage are true Israelites. Europeans and negroes had a mixture to create the kinkily hair illusion. Many Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jews are gentail converts in our modern days. The origin of the Ashkenazi is khazaria near the Caspian sea and the Sephardi came from Yemen. In Yemen the whole kingdom was converted to Judaism in the ancient times.
When Edomites /Essau were converted to Judaism, they took key places and then killed many Hebrews and over took the temple rule. The book of psalms 83:4-8 can give a picture of what was their motive for taking such an action. They had mixed marriage with the Romans and started to rule over the Hebrews instead. This came as a future prophesy fulfilled in the 2nd temple during Herods time. Herod was an Edomite hybrid.
Essau had also a mixture with Ishmael through through Mahalah the daughter of Ishmael Abraham’s son, the sister of Nebajoth, to be his wife in addition to the Canaanite wives he had. The Arabs and Egyptian became mixed and are to this day. Remember that polygamy was and is part of real Hebrew culture which we can even see among African tribes today.
The Caucasian Jews do not practice polygamy because they are not true Israelites but gentail converts from khazaria in Russia. The life style of Hebrews is patriarchal marriage and monogamy was considered of Satan.
GODS WARNING TO IMPOSTERS/lairs Revelation 2:9 and 3: 9.
A clear cut picture has finally been revealed to us all on the true origin of the Hebrews /Israelites of the bible. We now know who they are, where they are and what color they are. Therefore, God through his servant John who was at Patmos Island, when his eyes were made blind by evil workers. But Jesus Christ made him to see with spiritual eyes and he saw people pretending to be Jews and are not. God calls these people first; BLASPHEMOUS – 2:9a. These lairs calls themselves Jews when inside their hearts know that they are not Jews but imposters. Time is now to repent from this evil action.
Second; SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN – God wants each and every person to be the temple of the HOLY SPIRIT after receiving JESUS CHRIST as your personal saviour. This can make an individual not to be a synagogue of Satan; where, cheating, imposters and all evil is part of their lives. Lairs and imposters will not inherit the kingdom of God. Chapter 3:9 God has made a promise to expose all pretenders. Time is coming and that time is now when he will expose all the imposters and he will make them kneel before the true Hebrews /Israelites to show that God has loved Israel. (Malachi 1:1-2).
WHAT COLOR ARE THE HEBREWS? Further discussion to prove the true color
We have been made to believe that the Hebrews and Egyptians of the bible where white people. When in fact they were black. film industries took a center stage of infusing in the mind of people by continuing showing movies about white people as the real Hebrews of the bible. This message has actually gone deep in the minds of people who can even call this view as blasphemy, to associate Jesus to black race.
Today, if you are told to testify on the dream you had last night, about Jesus Christ in a vision; your explanation about Jesus might even much with the exactly picture of an American Jesus you watched on tv. Am told that people who know the main actor, go to an extent of desiring to worship that person. He has been telling them that he was just acting and he is not the real Jesus. It is fixion movies!!!
We the people of the world should not let this occur because the ones to be affected by this will be the children of their future. One person would ask; does it matter if Hebrews where white or black, the answer is yes. Because we are living in the world of lies and deception. And when the children’s minds develop off the deception that this being taught and taught, then the truth must be brought to the fore front.
Black people are more vulnerable to deception especially when their history has been erased from their minds through their education system, TV and movie theaters. Therefore time has come for the truth to be told. Whites did not share all the details about black peoples history when they were in charge of all printing media, this was because of racial face they had towards black people. Today the world has developed and we all have access to information through different media and no person can be deceived.
We shall go back to the book of genesis and we shall look at the people of the bible on who had who? Which country do they belong to in this present days?
GENESIS CHAPTER 10v 2 – 4. let’s begin together please.
JAPHETH AND HIS SONS.
Japheth begot Goma (Galatians, Germans, Crinea, Cambria, Celts) Magog: (Scythians, Georgia) Madai: (Mede) Javan: had (Grecians) Tubal: ( Iberes ) Misheck: (Moscow) Tirus.
The sons of Goma; Askenaz, Rheginians, Germany, Saxon, Scandavia.
The sons of Javan: are Elishah, Tarshishi, Kitteim (Cyprus)
A historian by the name of Abraham ibn Ezra said the Romans were descendants of kitteim.
LET Us LOOK AT GENESIS CHAPTER 10 v 6 – 18
HAM AND HIS SONS.
Ham begot Kush (Ethiopia), Mizraim (Egypt), put (Libya) and Canaan.
The sons of Cush
Nimrod, Seba, Havilah, Sabithah,Raamah and Subtechah
The sons of Raamah are Shebah and Dedan
The sons of Mizraim. Ludim, Anamin, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, Pathrusim,Casluhim and Caphtorim.
The sons of Canaan are Sidon, Heth, Jubisites, Amorites, Girgasites,Hivits, Arkits, Sinits, Arvadites,
Zemarites and Hamathite.
Genesis 10 v 22 – 29 should be compared to Luke 3 v 35 because Qeynan or Cainaan is missing in the book of genesis. He was removed by Masoretes as earlier stated in the other paragraph
SHEM AND HIS SONS
Elam, Asshur, Arphaxed (Chaldeans), Lud and Aram
The sons of Aram
Uz, Hul, Gether and Mash
Sons of Arphaxed (note the omission)
The first son was Qeyenan and not Shelah.
(This is the correct order according to Luke)
- Arphaxed begot Qeynan/Cainaan
- Qeynan begot Shelah
- Shelah begot Eber
- Eber begot Peleg – (here comes the family of Abraham) and Joktan.
- Joktan begot Almoded, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, Obal, Abimael, Sheba, Orphir, Havilah and Jobab
NOAH is the father of all the three sons’ JAPHETH, HAM and SHEM.
But after the dispersion of the people by God at the tower of Babel each went in their own region of the world. Japheth and his family went into Europe. However, Sheme and Ham stayed in the area and this is the reason why intermarriages occurred between the two people. They occupied the same land mass.
Mizraim (Egypt) and some of his family went into a lands called Africa, but it wasn’t called Africa then. The name Africa came from a Greek word frike means cold and horrow and afrike means not the land of cold and horrow. The land of HAM is hot, Latin afirika means SUNNY. CUSH (Ethiopia) the brother to MIZRAIM had a very large area which even went into what is now called the Middle East. Remember NIMROD was a Cushitic and the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Errech, Accade and Calneh in the land of Shinar.
This land area is almost the same as Persian kingdom the only difference is that the Persian kingdom included India (Esther 1 v 1). But Cush and his kingdom started from Babel present day Iraq. We must have this picture in mind to understand the connection of Africa and Middle East; that it was one land mass.
Around 1913 BCE ABRAHAM and his wife SARAH went to Egypt because of the famine which was in the land. Please follow carefully with the next quotation . But before he entered the land of Egypt he said; “Behold now, I know that you art a fair woman to look upon. And it will come to pass, when Egyptians shall see thee that they will say: this is his wife; and they will kill me, but thee they will keep alive.”
Now let us look at one commentaries references by RABBI SHELOMOH YITSCHAKI, SOLOMON Ben ISAAC, also known as RASHI said the following in his commentary in relation to the above quotation. “BEHOLD NOW, I KNOW THAT THOU ART A FAIR WOMAN ” _ “KNOWING THAT YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, I REALISE THAT YOUR BEAUTY IS NOW A SOURCE OF DANGER, PARTICULARLY SINCE THE EGYPTIAN ARE DARK-SKINNED AND UGLY ”. Despite this comment having some racial discrimination and ridiculous comment, but the point here is the fact that the Rabbi Has stated that the EGYPTIANS WERE BLACK PEOPLE (having a black skin race and a person belonging to a dark skinned race).
The all issue may look irrelevant now, but this quote by Rashi is going to back fire on him let us now follow the explanation because Rashi has admitted that the Egyptians where black people.
Next story is about JOSEPH one of the twelve sons of JACOB, was sold to Egypt by his own brothers out of anger. The Ishamarites took joseph and sold to the Egyptians. Later a famine had strike the land of Egypt and Canaan according to the bible. IN CASE THERE ARE THOSE WHO DON’T KNOW THE VERSES IN THE BIBLE THAT TALKS OF BLACK PEOPLE, HERE WE ARE AND WE HAVE ALREADY STARTED BRINGING OUT THOSE VERSES TO YOU. Because of hunger in the land Jacob instructed several of his sons to go into Egypt and buy food because Egypt had enough to sell.
When the brothers of Joseph the sons of Jacob had entered the land of Egypt, they were told to see a particular person. They didn’t know the person they were going to see and when they faced him, they did not recognize him, but joseph recognized them. Now if Joseph is supposed to be a white person and he was in the midst of black people, don’t you think his brothers would have recognized him immediately? Could it have been due to him being black amongst black people and blended in? A white person definitely would have been able to be pointed at if he was amongst black slaves during slavery time. What do you think?
Next it is a story when Israelites where leaving in the land of Egypt and pharaoh had instructed that all males among the children of Israel to be killed? One Israeli couple had a new born baby, a son and was hidden for three months. But when they could not hid him anymore, the child was put in a basket and placed among the reeds by the bank of the Nile River. The daughter to pharaoh wanting to bath in the Nile, went to the banks and saw the basket among the reeds and she opened the basket she saw a baby in it. Because the baby was very young she instructed a Hebrew family coincidentally the mother to the child to look after and nurse the child until he was weaned. The agreement was made and the baby was given the name MOSES.
Remember that the Egyptians were black, and if Moses was white and knowing pharaoh had issued a decree to kill all the Hebrew males, wouldn’t he have killed Moses just there and then when she brought the child into the house of her father pharaoh; since supposedly the child was white in the midst of black Egyptians? Again if the child was white do you think pharaoh daughter would have even allowed the child to live when she found him by the Nile River? Obviously the answer is no.
The last point is this, we all know that Moses lived among the Egyptians for years and one day he saw an Egyptian abusing a Hebrew, he came to the aid of the Hebrew and killed the Egyptians. He ran away in case the news reached pharaoh. He left Egypt and went to the land of median when he just entered the land of median, he helped some women. They were very grateful and ran back to tell their father that an Egyptian helped them.
Here again if they made a mistake by saying Moses was an Egyptian and knowing that Egyptians are supposedly dark skinned and ugly, does this also make Moses dark skinned and ugly too? Surely people need to be careful on what they say it may come back to haunt you.
Herodotus (484 – 425 BC) was born in halicarnassus a Greek colony in Asia minor. He travelled a lot in different regions and he was a friend to Sophocles of Greece. His journey included reaching the western shores of black sea, south Italy and Egypt, and to the Asian cities of tire, Babylon, Ecbatana, Nineveh and Susa. During his journey he wrote the following quotation about the Egyptians or natives; “….. It is certain that the natives of the country are black …. There can be no doubt that the colchians are an Egyptian race …… I made this inquire on the subject both in Colchis and in Egypt, and I found that the colchians had a more distinct re correction of the Egyptians, than the Egyptians had of them …my own conjectures where found first, on the fact that they are black skinned and have wooly hair ….” By this quotation it also gives us a positive identification on Egyptians. This is to show that Egyptians were black and that Israelite always got mistaken for them, to also prove that they both, the Egyptians and the Israelites were black people.
Solomon Grayzel a white Jewish historian of the 9th century CE (AD). He stated that a man appeared in North Africa among the Hebrews there, his name was Eldad from the tribe of Dan (Danite). They said he spoke a very strange and unknown language and he told them weird stories. He said the members of his tribe had escaped Israel after Sennacharib had conquered Israel and he mentioned of Hebrews From other tribes who lived where he came from. He taught the other Hebrews in North Africa all the laws that people follow, which was given to his tribe by tradition from Moses successor Joshua Ben Nun. The story was examined to be true and legitimate by the Gaon.
The story has been included here because Mr Grayzel went on to say “some modern scholars argue that Eldad was an Ethiopian Jew, a descendant of ancient colony, which in the days of Ezra, lived on the south border of Egypt…” we all know the color of the Ethiopian Jews and we can conclude that Eldad the Danite, from the tribe of Dan one of the twelve tribes of Israel was a black man. Dear friends fathers, mothers, uncles and all brothers and sisters if we can’t believe and accept this proof as to say what color the Hebrews where, then you are truly in the state of denial.
Finally on this topic, we are going to list other verses in the bible identifying the color of the Israelites. The verses are as follows: lamentation 4 v 8 it says their visage (face) is blacker than coal. Lamentation 5 v 10 our skin was black like an oven …
Job 30 v 30 my skin is black upon me … Song of Solomon 1v 5 – 6 I am dark but lovely ….. Do not look upon me because I am black. Daniel 7 v 9 …. And the hair of his head was like pure wool … Daniel 10 v 6 … his arms and feet like burnished bronze in color…. Revelation 1 v 14 his head and hair were white like wool ….. His feet like brass as if refined in a furnace.
Acts 21:37-39…Are you not the Egyptian who some time ago stirred up a rebellion…..
Joseph, Moses and Paul were mistaken to be Egyptians because they were black. They blended together with black Egyptians in color and appearance.
We can also know the color of Hebrews on differentiating between white people and lepers by reading Leviticus 13. The color of real Hebrews is found in this passage. Please go on and read king James version (kjv).
PROPHESY ON ISRAELITES OF AFRICA
Israelites tribesmen have been situated in the heart of Africa for a long time in history. Ethiopia is mentioned from the beginning of the bible of Genesis and we can not say there were no Israelites living there. From Ethiopia, Egypt, Libya and Sudan, they migrated to west and south in to the heart of Africa. This includes the whole central and southern Africa. Some passing through the Nilotic corridor in east Africa reached as far as South Africa.
We should remember that the Nilotic people are called nomads because they don’t stay at one place, Because of pasture for grazing animals and farming. Others passed through the Niger -Congo to west Africa. They were also running away from persecution. Prophet Zephaniah said that time is coming when God will remember His worshippers, the daughters of his dispersed ones from beyond the rivers of Ethiopia. These dispersed Israelites shall offer an offering to God and they will no longer be ashamed for any of their deeds, in which they transgressed against God. If we read vers 20 God says that after he brings these Hebrews back, He will give them fame and praise among all the people of the earth, “when I return your captives before your eyes,” “says the Lord .”
TRACING SOUTHERN AFRICAN TRIBES CONNECTED TO HEBREWS/ ISRAELITES OF THE BIBLE
A well known Algerian Jewish author of the 9th centaury by the name of Eldad the Danite wrote about the first diaspora of the Israelites who were forcibly expelled from Israel by the Assyrians in 600BC. We should always remember that the capture of Israel (northern kingdom) was in 722BC and that they were those who left Israel 10 years before capture was done. They sensed that things were not going on well and decided to leave. But in this case, Eldad states that these were just expelled since Israel was already in exile and Assyria was in charge over the affairs of Israel.
We are therefore, justified to begin tracing the Hebrews /Israelites in Africa. Since it has also been established that Hebrews are also called negroes, who are at the same time called Bantu speaking people. Hebrews are a Nilotic people of black and brown in color, whose origin is middle east through to Africa.
The descendants of HAM (HAMITES) and the descendants of SHEM (SEMITIC) were close related through intermarriages and they were all of the same color black and brown to indicate and prove that real Israelites are black people and they share the same land mass of Africa. This is true even today. We shall therefore consider looking at some tribes of southern Africa whose origin is West Africa, Sudan, Egypt and part of Ethiopia. Some came through Yemen.
A RESEARCH WHICH WAS DONE RECENTLY.
Latest research by Abraham shalom a professor of biblical history shows that the Tongas of Zambia,Tutsi of the great lakes in Rwanda and the lembas of Zimbabwe are the lost tribes of Israel. The research states that the three tribes are a Nilotic ethnic group whose origin is middle east. After comparing a few Tonga phonemes with the tutsi, black Jews of Ethiopia and some old Tonga traditions tarried together with lemba dialects (Zezulu) of Zimbabwe. It was discovered that the Tonga polygamy, cattle keeping, abstinence of eating mice, caterpillar are some of the Jewish customs practiced by zezulu (not Shona). In this research, it was concluded that the Tongas, Tutsis,lembas and the Ethiopian Jews are the lost tribes of Israel which escaped captivity by Assyria according to 2kings 17:5-7.

INAMAMWANGA/MAMBWE, ILLAS, LENJES, TONGAS,LEMBAS, TUTSIS ARE All NILOTIC TRIBES.
The INAMWANGAS of Nakonde district are believed to have come from north east Africa together with the TONGAS, ILLAS, LENJES the so called Bantu botatwe of southern and central provinces of Zambian. They are called botatwe ( three Bantu groups) because they have everything in common and similar culture. From today we shall no longer call them Bantu botatwe but “Bantu bosanwe” meaning Four Bantu groups including the INAMWANGAS. This is because they all came from one direction and became the first settlers in the present day Zambia.
They also have similarities in names between the TONGAS, ILLAS, LENJES And INAMWANGAS. With time we shall also look at the MAMBWE who are also close related to INAMWANGAS and with also similar phrases in names. In Tonga, we have prefix like “Si” “Na”which is also used among Inamamwanga/Mambwe names. In a similar way to that of ILLA and LENJE tribes. For example, Inamwangas/Mambwe have names like; Siame, Sichalwe, Sichizya, Sichula, Sikombe for men; and women are called Nayame, Nachalwe, Nachula, Nakombe. In Tonga we have Siamaundu, Siajunza, Siamudodo, Siakalima, Siamateka. We also have Namoonga, Namalombe, Namwala in TONGA and ILLA. Sichula is the same as in TONGA chuula. Other names in ILLA are Shamusale, Shamuzumba and in Tonga we have Shazemba, Haazemba and lenjes have names like Shinyanga.
Dr. Chisanga Siame in his journal article “katunkumene and the ancient Egypt in Africa, 2013”, stated that, “It is interesting also to observe the clan prefix Hi-m Hiram is mainly found among the Bantonga of Zambian and Banyarwanda. In this case, Hiram, also kiram ( Hi-ra-Ame, ki-ra-Ame) is a close much to Siyame”. This is a clear link between the Tongas, Tutsis and INAMWANGA with other related tribes like the ILLA, Lenjes and through to the LEMBAS tribe of Zimbabwe.
The other similarities are also found in this statement when Sinkamba (1994), refered to Musyani who came from kola, a BISA by tribe and settled in INAMWANGA land. He was made a chief because of his interagency by introducing blacksmith. The words we are quoting are; “Nga watalika wasula Amasumo ni mivwi….” When you read the above quotation, a TONGA, ILLA, LENJE persons would see words similar to their language.
History states that the earliest people to have settled in Zambian was by 7th century and these are the Tonga people of southern province. But revisions have emerged, which now put the INAMWANGA of Munchinga. Province of north east Zambia together with the TONGA, ILLA, LENJE tribes to have settled in Zambia by 6th century BC.
The INAMWANGAS, TONGA, ILLA and LENJE with other sub clans are a pre Nilotic people linked to the INGESSANA of South Sudan. The Tonga, INAMWANGA, ILLA, LENJE and the INGESSANA are part of the shilluk cluster of ethnic groups where Tutsis and LEMBAS can trace their roots as well.
The lifestyle of INAMWANGA, TONGA, LEMBA, TUTSI, LENJE and ILLA was a fugal system or nomadic life. Meaning they had no permanent residence. As they came down south, the Tutsi went west the INAMWANGA settled in the southern part in Tanganyika which is now called Tanzania. During slave trade the whole area was called Zanji land. The word ZANZIBAR comes from the word, “Zanji” ( Zinj, Zingion), a Persia word Zangh meaning ‘NEGRO’ and the word “Bar” means ‘COAST’. In short it was called the negro coast.
While some other tribes proceeded south and settled in northern Rhodesia now called Zambia.The LEMBAS crossed in to Southern Rhodesia now called Zimbabwe. The latest school atlas of Zambia Titled; ORIGINS of Zambia’s people. (2016:26). Shows that the INAMWANGA, Mambwe, LENJE, SOLI, ILLA,Tonga and TOKA- LEYA are the only tribes in Zambia which came through the Nilotic corridor and Zanji land. The rest of the tribes is Luba Lunda kingdom in Kongolo or Congo DR. The Ngoni and the Makololo their original roots is great lakes. We shall look at the Nguni of South Africa later. The sub tribes on the map of Zambian are part of main tribe Tonga.
INAMWANGAS who are in Tanzania are found in places like Mbeya and Lukwa region and those in Zambia settled in Mwenzo western part of Nakonde district. They are also found in some parts of Chinsali, Kasama and Mbala districts. The lenjes branched off first and they nicknamed themselves as per their language saying, ” MULENJE MUNTASHI”, means LENJE going first and they settled in kabwe Area where archaeologists discovered a broken heel man in central Zambia. The ILLAS were second to blanched off . BA-ILLA means going out and they settled in Namwala district which is now part of central province of Zambia. At first it was southern province but its location has changed.
The TONGAS and a sub clan of TOKA LEYA are the only one in the Southern province of Zambia since the LEMBAS crossed the Zambezi river where Zambia got its name from. Its a LUNDA name NZAMBE meaning GOD.
That time there were no Boaders and the Inamamwanga in Tanzania and Zambia shared everything and had one leadership. After creating Boaders, the headquarters of the INAMWANGA people remained in Tanganyika under chief MAKOMA. He appoints a chief from there to rule over the Inamamwanga in Zambia. All the Nilotic people have characteristic of moving from one place to another because they keep animals and farming.
INAMAMWANGAS and many other tribes suffered a lot during slave trade because most of its people were sold to Arabs and Persians as slaves (Ezra 9:7). We should also have it in maind that Persian kingdom had many provinces and part of east and north Africa was one of the provinces. Truthfully speaking INAMAMWANGA /MAMBWE are a Bantu -negro people with connection to the Hebrews of the Bible, just as it has been said about the TONGAS, LEMBAS, TUTSIS and now the Illas and the lenjes.
MORE TRIBES CONNECTED TO HEBREWS OF THE BIBLE.
THE NGUNI PEOPLE.
The NGUNI people includes Xhosa, Zulu, Ndebele and Swazi people.
Traditionally, they are said to have migrated to Africa through great lakes region from middle east. They are also a Nilotic people and it is believed that they lived together with other ethnic tribes like the TONGAS, LEMBAS and other tribes which are linked to the eastern corridor a long the Nile river. Though the NGUNI came down to Southern Africa earlier than any tribe in 6th century BC, except the KHOISAN people. The NGUNI diverged from the SOTHO-TSWANA within the past 1,000-2000 years (Jorde et al. 1995). Other tribes who are part of the NGUNI are THEMBU, BOMVANA, MPONDO.
The nguni consits of three large sub groups; the northern Nguni ( THE ZULU and THE SWAZI). The Southern Nguni includes; (XHOSA, NDEBELE) and other smaller groups. The NGONIS in Zambia, Mozambique, Tanzania and Malawi Trace their origins from the NGUNIS of kwazulu-natal called the ZULUS of South Africa.
The BASOTHO are a Bantu ethnic group whose ancestors have lived in Southern Africa around early 6th century. BASOTHO Bantu speaking people are a pastoralists who separated from the Tswana of Botswana in the 14th century.
The Makololo (kololo) are a Sotho people of Southern Africa and are closely to other Basotho, from which they separated themselves in the early 19th century. In 1823 they started a migration to the north through Botswana to Barotseland which is now part of Zambia. The name KOLOLO was named after the wife of their first chief Sebitwane. The KOLOLO are now known as lozi because of a mixture with the luyi people.
The Aluyi people came from Luba Lunda empire. The name “Aluyana” means people of the river. According to their myth, the lozi came from Nyambe (the lozi name for God). The NKOYA tribe of Zambia is close related to the LOZIS, because they were one people at time with the ALUYI people. NALINANGA, daughter of MWAMBWA broke away and went East ward and her group became the ancestors of NKOYA people.
The Shona ethnic group is the main group were we have some clans with very similar culture and language. These are Western Shona (Makalanga) coming from Rozvi state and eastern Shona. The central Shona are the ZEZULU or the LEMBAS who are connected to the Tongas and Tutsi and now Inamamwanga/Mambwe, ILLA and LENJE. Lemba DNA proves that they are Hebrews/Israelites tribe. The Northern has Korekore as part of the Shona people.
THE BEMBAS AND OTHER TRIBES.
The BEMBAS people originated from the LUBA LUNDA kingdom around Congo river. If we can remember in other first paragraphs, we talked about “KONGOLO”. These were different locations established by Bantu speaking people. Bantu people had set up KONGOLO in Mali, Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, Angola and Congo. We started that the word “KONGOLO” anciently “‘Koungelo'” drives from two Hebrew words, we have “Kun” meaning established and “Golo” (Aramaic Hebrew) meaning JUDAH. “GELO GOLO) means exile. Therefore, the word KONGOLO or ‘koungelo’ means set up in exile, today It became known as Congo.
Many BEMBAS and other tribes who came through West Africa down LUBA LUNDA kingdom in Congo have their ancestors who became slaves through the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean’s Islands, Brazil and the United States of America. When you look at the statistics, you can see KONGOLO in DRC and Luanda’s in Angola having the highest percentage of Slaves. The LUANDA KONGOLO also connects the LUVALES, Lundas of north western and Luapula provinces’ of Zambia. They all came from Luba LUNDA kingdom.
The Bemba have also a direct link to Egypt as can be noted from the journal articles of Dr.Chisanga Siame titled “kantunkumene” an ancient Egypt of Africa: From journal of Black Studies of March,2013. In his research, Dr. Chisanga discovered that the term “Uku tunkumana” which is about two thousand miles away south of Egypt may have descended from the name “TUNKA MEN”. This is a name for ancient kingdom of Sudan suggesting a link between the Bemba’s of Zambia and Egypt.
It is also important to note that the Luvale on North western province of Zambia have also maintained the culture of Circumcision of males, which is part of the real Hebrew of the bible.
The other tribe is Bisa whose origin is kola. BISA is one of the tribes with direct link to Middle east, just like the Tonga, Inamamwanga/Mambwe, Nguni, Lemba, Tutsi and other close related tribes. To the look of things, these tribes lived together at some time, way back in history.
In summary, we shall continue looking at other tribes within the region of Africa, since we have established that Hebrews and Egyptians people of the Bible were black and not White. And that Africa is a shared land between Ham (Hamites) and Shem (Semitic). The two were black people and had intermarriages between them through their descendants.
In a country like Zambia, under “One Zambia One Nation”, helped the citizens of Zambia to have a mixture in regard to marriage and bearing of children. The tribes which have been listed on this topic and those not mentioned are connected through blood as a result of parents getting married from different tribes. Just like any other tribes in Africa, it is difficult to drow a line between tribes, which have been living together for such a long time. We are actually one Africa and tribe.
That is the reason why we have names like; Nyambe Mulenga, Morgan Shazemba Sichalwe, Chisanga Siame, Mazuba Dube, Sibongile Phiri. This is proper mixture to show oneness. In Africa we have tribes which can trace their roots to the pharaohs of Egypt, Cushites, Hebrews and those tribes linked to all the races. This world is coming from very far and years have passed.
