How did the Hebrews turn White? A slide pops up listing the Black Israelites' six contributions to world culture during their time in Egypt. Given a renewed sense of despair among many African Americans it is far from surprising that Kendrick Lamar and other celebrities would embrace aspects of Hebrew Israelite beliefs.
They frequently use Hebrew words such as Yah the name of God, Yahweh, shortened as Yah, Yahoshua Jesus, Shabbat Sabbath, etc. Hebrew Israelites are usually part of the Sacred Name movement: they believe you must refer to God as Yah” (or some other name). Dr. Sand names among these historians Ben-Zion Dinur, called the father of Israel history; the great historian Marc Bloch; and Abraham Polok, founder of the department of Middle Eastern history at the University of Tel Aviv.
Many black Jews fled back to Egypt and further afield and many remained optimistic and remained in Israel, as the roman army approached, more and more black hebrews left and when the roman army arrived, the killed over a million remaining black Hebrews and destrogen their cities.
But some awakened black Israelites practice it too. Although her name is Egyptian, remember that most Black Americans, for example, have names of Whites, so a name itself is not proof for her being a Black Egyptian. Disdained by Jews because of their mixed lineage, they refused to worship in the rebuilt Temple of Jerusalem , believing that God had commanded the Israelites to establish a central sanctuary at Mount Gerizim in the north.
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.
Ben Ammi shows knowledge of this diversity when he asserts, During the era of slavery in the Americas, it did not matter to the slave master whether the slave was Hebrew, Ashanti, Watusi, or Mandingo; they were all labeled ‘negro' by him.”63 If Israelite leader Ben Ammi recognizes that the slave population consisted of ethnic groups other than Hebrews, how can any Black Hebrew preacher look at a random African American and claim that he or she is a descendant of the ancient Israelites?
Source of Authority: It is difficult to determine where these Hebrew Israelites get their ultimate source of authority since they do not have any official writings. The ancient Hebrews were not called Jews. But REAL Israel will be delivered again, through the blood of the Son; Jesus Christ, the Messiah for His people; Israel.
While many Black Hebrew Israelites do not claim to be racists, or to hate someone based on skin color, in practice, these Hebrew Israelites do not act this way. Literary critics suggest that Abraham , Isaac , and Jacob may once have been the patriarchs of separate tribes who were later fused into one "lineage" reflecting the growing unity of the "Hebrew" people.
Since 2000, when the prophecy of a key leader failed to materialize (he predicted Christ would return to Earth at the dawn of the new millennium to wreak bloody vengeance on white people), the rhetoric of extremist Hebrew Israelites sects has been steadily heating up, with increasing talk of an impending apocalypse and God-ordained race war.
Ancient Israel spent 430 years in Egypt. In 1966 our spiritual diaspora leader, Ben Ammi, had a vision that it was time for the Children of Israel who remained in America (the land of their captivity) to return to the Holy Land (the land of their origin). There will be peace on Earth when the black Jesus returns and the true Israelites take all the white people captive under Christ's command.
