The Isles of the Gentiles!

Path: Books and ebooks Spiritual Black Judaism Christianity Isles of the Gentiles


The original Hebrew word Goy refer to "peoples" or "nations". Later English translators used the term gentiles when the context referred to non-Israelite peoples or nations in English translations of the Bible. However, this useage gives the idea that the "Jews" are not "people" or a "nation", or that the term "goy" does not apply to the Israelites (Jewish people).

The Isles of the Gentiles
 
The Isles of the Gentiles is the land above the Mediterranean Sea. It is the land of Japhet. Many people believe that Gentiles are white people or that white people are the only "gentiles." Japhet and Noah and all his sons and daughters were people of "color." I wont go into where white people come from in this post, however, before the "whites" came down out of the extream north into what is now called Europe the lands known as the Isles of the Gentiles were occupied by "black" people. Also, it is agreeded that Ham is black and not an Israelite. By some definitions that would make him "gentile."
 
The garden that was eastward in Eden was located between the Nile and the Euphrate rivers. There are records in Israel which show this land to be a plush garden at one time. The records also indicate that a great event took place of volcantic like system that pushed burnt rock from benigth the earth onto the surface and covered the land with sand and rock. This land is prophised to return to a garden state with the return of the Sons of Yah. There is evidence that the land is being returned from a dessert with plant life returning in many areas sence the advent of the Kingdom of Yah in Israel in 1968.
 
Older maps of the earth show Eden/Afric to range from all of what is now called Africa to enclude the Isles of the Gentiles, India, Iran, Iraq and parts of China. Ham was aloted most of what is called Africa today, Japhet was aloted what is called Europe today and Shem was aloted the land refered to as Arabia, India, Iran, Iraq or in general the land of Asia. All these were "Black" people until the people whom Yah had driven into the Northern part of the planted over ran Europe, Asia, China and divided Africa for themselves.

GENTILES
jen'-tilz ({Hebrew} goy, plural goyim; {Greek} ethnos, "people," "nation"):

Goy (or Goi) is rendered "Gentiles" in the King James Version in some 30 passages, but much more frequently "heathen," and more often as "nation," the latter is the usual rendering in the Revised Version (British and American). It is commonly used for a non-Israelite people.

Gentile also occurs in passages referring to the Israelites, as in Genesis 12:2; Deuteronomy 32:28; Joshua 3:17; 4:1; 10:13; 2 Samuel 7:23; Isaiah 1:4; Zec 2:9, but the word (`am) is the term commonly used for the people of God. In the "New Testament," ethnos is the word corresponding to goy and in the "Old Testament" goy is rendered "Gentiles", while (laos) is the word which corresponds to `am.

The King James Version also renders Hellenes as "Gentiles" in six passages (John 7:35; Romans 2:9,10; 3:9; 1 Corinthians 10:32; 12:13), but the Revised Version (British and American) renders it "Greeks."

Under "Old Testament" regulations the Gentiles/nations that were non-Israelites, not from the stock of Abraham, were not hated or despised for that reason, but were to be treated almost on a plane of equality, except certain tribes in Canaan with regard to whom there were special regulations of non-intercourse.
 
The stranger from other nations enjoyed the hospitality of the Israelite who was commanded to love him (Deuteronomy 10:19), to sympathize with him, "For ye know the heart of the stranger, seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt" (Exodus 23:9 the King James Version). The Kenites were treated almost as brethren, especially the children of Rechab (Judges 1:16; 5:24; Jeremiah 35). Uriah the Hittite was a trusted warrior of David (2 Samuel 11); Ittai the Gittite was captain of David's guard (2 Samuel 18:2); Araunah the Jebusite was a respected resident of Jerusalem.

The Gentiles had the right of asylum in the cities of refuge, the same as the Israelites (Numbers 35:15). They might even possess Israelite slaves (Leviticus 25:47), and a Gentile servant must not be defrauded of his wage (Deuteronomy 24:15). They could inherit in Israel even as late as the exile (Ezekiel 47:22,23). They were allowed to offer sacrifices in the temple at Jerusalem, as is distinctly affirmed by Josephus (BJ, II, xvii, 2- 4; Ant, XI, viii, 5; XIII, viii, 2; XVI, ii, 1; XVIII, v, 3; CAp, II, 5), and it is implied in the Levitical law (Leviticus 22:25). Prayers and sacrifices were to be offered for Gentile rulers (Jeremiah 29:7; Baruch 1:10,11; Ezra 6:10; 1 Macc 7:33; Josephus, BJ, II, x, 4). Gifts might be received from them (2 Macc 5:16; Josephus, Ant, XIII, iii, 4; XVI, vi, 4; BJ, V, xiii, 6; CAp, II, 5).

But as we approach the "Christian era" the attitude of the "Jews" toward the "Gentiles" changes. We now find in New Testament times, the most extreme aversion, scorn and hatred. They were regarded as unclean, with whom it was unlawful to have any friendly intercourse. They were the enemies of "God" and His people, to whom the knowledge of God was denied unless they became proselytes, and even then they could not, as in ancient times, be admitted to full fellowship. Jews were forbidden to counsel them, and if they asked about Divine things they were to be cursed. All children born of mixed marriages were bastards.
 

Some believe That is what caused the Jews to be so hated by Greeks and Romans, as we have abundant evidence in the writings of Cicero, Seneca and Tacitus. Something of this is reflected in the New Testament (John 18:28; Acts 10:28; 11:3).

The exiled "Jews" suffered the bitter treatment at the hands of their Gentile captors. The bitterest being here in the American capitivity. After the return and establishment of Israel in Judea, we were in constant conflict with neighboring tribes and especially with the Greek rulers of Syria. The fierce persecution of Antiochus IV, who attempted to blot out the knowledge of the Holy One of Israel and His Torah and Hellenize the "Jews," and the desperate struggle for independence, created a burning patriotism and zeal for the "faith" which culminated in the rigid exclusiveness we see today.
 
However, with the advent of the Kingdom of Yah at Jerusalem, the Love of Yah and His Truth (Torah) is being taught to all nations (gentiles) who wish to learn of Truth and be Sons and Daughters of Yah Almighty. Keep in mind that to be a "son" or "daughter" you must do the will of the "Father."
 
No one is excluded based on skin color or the land in which they were born. The only requirement is to love Truth and abide in Righteousness. Righteousness is keeping the Torah (Divine Instructions of Yah). We accept the people but not the lies, disceptions or miss-conceptions the people may bring with them. Every bit of knowledge of history and heritage must be set stright. The Truth about diet, family relationships, work and worship, culture and social life must conform to the Will of Yah.
 
Every nation will not become "Israel" but will have to live a righteous life to be blessed of Yah. The nations that are "saved" will live in their own lands but they will be governed by Yah Almighty and not by man-made governments that opposses the Divine Rule of Yah, for He will, in due time, destroy the "adversary" and all those who worship/follow the adversary.
 

Jew and Gentile

 

Jew and Gentile in the Ancient World

Louis H. Feldman (Author)

Jew and Gentile in the Ancient World

Book Description

Relations between Jews and non-Jews in the Hellenistic-Roman period were marked by suspicion and hate, maintain most studies of that topic. But if such conjectures are true, asks Louis Feldman, how did Jews succeed in winning so many adherents, whether full-fledged proselytes or "sympathizers" who adopted one or more Jewish practices? Systematically evaluating attitudes toward Jews from the time of Alexander the Great to the fifth century A.D., Feldman finds that Judaism elicited strongly positive and not merely unfavorable responses from the non-Jewish population. Jews were a vigorous presence in the ancient world, and Judaism was strengthened substantially by the development of the Talmud. Although Jews in the Diaspora were deeply Hellenized, those who remained in Israel were able to resist the cultural inroads of Hellenism and even to initiate intellectual counterattacks.

Energy of Hebrew Letters

 

The Energy of Hebrew Letters: The Quantum Story of the Original Alphabet

Rav P.S. Berg (Author)

The Energy of Hebrew Letters: The Quantum Story of the Original Alphabet

Book Description

According to the Zohar, among God's first creations were the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Kabbalah teaches that the alphabet, called "ivrit" in Hebrew, comes from the root word lavir, or to transfer. Far more than simple symbols of communication, the letters transfer energy from the Light of God into the physical world. The story of the letters as they pleaded their respective cases for the primary role in God's creative process is the blueprint by which Creation was made possible. In his new book, Rav Berg reveals the spiritual meaning and history of each of the 22 letters: how and why each was created, and what energy it transmits. Berg uses quantum physics to illustrate this bedrock of Kabbalah, proving that this truly is a time when physicists and metaphysicists are joining hands and minds.
