Are African-Americans the Descendants of Shem?

Updated on June 18, 2013

Map showing the Migration of Noah's three sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth to the three continents of Asia, Africa and Europe

So God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them: "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.” (Gen. 9:1)

Now the sons of Noah who went out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. And Ham was the father of Canaan. These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the whole earth was populated.” (Gen. 9:18-19)

The Descendants of Shem

Shem is the oldest son of Noah because his name is mentioned first and also in another biblical verse (Gen. 10:1). Shem is the father of Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud, and Aram.

Arphaxad begot Salah, and Salah begot Eber. To Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.” (Gen. 10:24-25)

The name Eber” means “cross over to the other side”, and it is the word from which the word "Hebrew" is derived. So you can see that the Hebrews have two sets of descendants. One is Peleg who is the ancestor of Abraham, David and the Lord Jesus Christ (Lk. 3:35). The other set of Hebrew descendants comes from Joktan who had thirteen sons (Gen. 10:26-29).

God confused the language of the people when they built the Tower of Babel. Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.” (Gen. 11:9).

Peleg stayed in the same country in which his descendant Abraham lived, but his brother Joktan, with his thirteen sons moved away eastwards.And their dwelling place was from Mesha as you go toward Sephar, the mountain of the east.” (Gen. 10:26-30)

Several studies indicate Joktan and his large family moved to East Asia (present China) to populate the largest racial group on earth.

No Biblical Record of African-Americans having Ancestry from Shem

There is no record in the Bible that any of Shem's descendants migrated to Africa after God had confused the language of the people and stopped the building of the Tower of Babel. The Bible recorded Moses married an Ethiopian woman but their marriage occurred after the Exodus from Egypt (Num. 12:1). However, in the New Testament it was recorded that several Jews from countries in Africa came to Jerusalem for the Feast of Pentecost (Acts 2:8-11). They may be Jews in religion but may not be Semites (Shem's descendants) in racial origin. For example, the Ethiopian eunuch who was converted to Christianity by Philip may or may not be a Semite (Acts 8:26-40). Anyway, the ancestral home of African-Americans is not Ethiopia which is in East Africa. African-Americans orignally come from West Africa.

The Descendants of Ham

"The sons of Ham were Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan.” (Gen. 10:6) According to the Bible Egypt is called“the land of Ham” (Psm. 105:23, 27;106:22; ref. 78:51). Egypt is definitely a country in Africa.

Cush: Peoples of central and Southern Arabia. The Ethiopians are shown as being inhabitants of both sides of the Red Sea. Also, they had a skin of a different appearance. (Jer. 13:23)

Mizraim: Refers to areas of upper and lower Nile River of Egypt thus a reference to Egyptians.

Phut: Generally associated with the Egyptians and more specifically Libya.

Canaan: The area settled by Canaan and his sons was west of the River Jordan which was named after him. Canaan was called the Promised Land and was invaded and conquered by Joshua and the children of Israel (Josh 14:1 ) Canaan is not in Africa but in West Asia.

African-Americans are not the Descendants of Canaan

There are many wrongful misconceptions and misplacement of Noah's curse after he was drunk with wine and became naked. Although Ham had seen Noah's nakedness and told his two brothers who went backwards to cover their father's shame, Noah did not say anything against him but said,“Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants he shall be to his brethren.” (Gen. 9:20-25). It must be clearly understood that Ham and his three other sons Cush, Misraim and Phut did not receive the curse. Only Canaan was cursed.

It is absolutely wrong and unbiblical to use the curse on Canaan in reference to the slave trade in the Nineteenth Century that brought the West Africans to America. The land of Canaan had never been in Africa so no African-American has ever been subjected to the curse on Canaan.

Besides, the curse of Canaan had already been fulfilled after their land had been conquered by the children of Israel (Josh. 9:17-27).

By His death on the cross the Lord Jesus Christ has “redeemed us from the curse of the law” therefore believers in Him can now receive the blessings of Abraham (Gal. 3:13-14). Although Rahab the harlot was a Canaanite, yet because of her faith in the One True God, she and her family's lives were not only spared but she herself had also become an ancestor of our Lord Jesus Christ (Heb. 11:30-31; Mt. 1:5).

Misinterpretation of Scriptures

Excerpt from an email that I received:

According to the Scriptures (Deuteronomy 28:68), the descendants of Shem were taken to the Americas by ships to be sold into slavery. The so called "African-Americans" that were captured by the Ethiopians (Africans) were taken to the Americas. The now called African Americans (Blacks) are the direct descendants of Shem.”

Here is my response:

Let us study Deuteronomy 28:68 and see what it says. "And the LORD will take you back to Egypt in ships, by the way of which I said to you, "You shall never see it again.' And there you shall be offered for sale to your enemies as male and female slaves, but no one will buy you."

Background of this verse

When the children of Israel were leaving Egypt Pharaoh changed his mind and chased after them, so they rebelled against Moses (Ex. 14:8-12). And Moses said to the people, "Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever.” (Ex. 14:13) In Deuteronomy 28:68 Moses was reminding them about what he said: by the way of which I said to you, "You shall never see it again.'It means the children of Israel would never see Egypt again.

Why did Moses write: "And the LORD will take you back to Egypt in ships,”? The method that the children of Israel left Egypt was through God's miracle of parting the waters of the Red Sea (Ex. 14:21-22, 29). If God were to take the children of Israel back to Egypt they would also have to cross the Red Sea again, except that the LORD will take you back to Egypt in ships”.

This verse is not a prophecy. It is a warning of punishment to Israel for disobedience

The whole chapter of Deuteronomy 28 is God's promise of blessings for obedience to His commandments (verses 1-14), and curses for disobedience to His commandments (verses 15-68). The book of Deuteronomy was written by Moses to the children of Israel while they were still wandering in the wilderness. Of all the curses that would befall the Israelites the one thing that they feared the most is to be slaves again in Egypt. They have been liberated through the miracle when God parted the Red Sea. Moses warned them that if they disobeyed God they could be sent back to Egypt and become slaves again. What a horrifying curse!

And there you shall be offered for sale to your enemies as male and female slaves, but no one will buy you."

There were laws for buying slaves (Ex. 21:1-11; Lev. 25:39-55) . A male or female slave that was sold must be set free after serving for six years (Deut. 15:12-18). The worst thing that can happen to a Hebrew was to be offered for sale to your enemies as male and female slaves, but no one will buy you." It means they are worthless and nobody wants them, not even as slaves.

Deuteronomy 28:68 has nothing to do with the African- Americans

Some people use this verse to show that African-Americans are descendants of Shem. There is no historical record of African-American slaves being brought back from America to Egypt. There is also no historical record of African-American slaves being offered for sale to your enemies as male and female slaves, but no one will buy you.

What about Song of Solomon 1:5 ?

I am dark, but lovely, O daughters of Jerusalem, Like the tents of Kedar, Like the curtains of Solomon.”


There are several interpretations to the Song of Solomon. There is a literal meaning and also an allegorical meaning. Solomon was writing about the Shulamite” and he gave a question What would you see in the Shulamite – As it were, the dance of the double camp?“ (Song 6:13). An African-American would read Song of Solomon 1:5-6 and interpret that she was black. A Caucasian-American would read Song of Solomon 1:8 If you do not know, O fairest among women,” and verse 15 Behold, you are fair, my love: Behold, you are fair! You have dove's eyes.” would interpret that she was white.

Even if Song of Solomon 1:5 is talking about a black African woman this verse has nothing to do with the African-Americans.

African-Americans should be proud of their Heritage

African-Americans do not have to be the descendants of Shem to feel proud of themselves. Just look at the successful African-Americans who are the descendants of Ham, and they should be proud of their heritage. One of the greatest preachers in America is William J. Seymour who, at the turn of the Twentieth Century, had not only helped to revive Christianity in America but also throughout the world.

      It is very unfortunate that there are people throughout the history of mankind who have used The Bible, particularly the passages to which you alluded to justify treating those they deemed as "cursed," therefore beneath them, cruelly. And if we are serious about placing blame, there is enough to go around I am sure. Almost every race and/ or ethnic group has at some time in their history enslaved and/or exploited another group. It is time for us all to admit we have blood on our hands and begin the healing process.

      Zondervan's Compact Bible Dictionary: Ham - The youngest son of Noah, born probably about 96 years before the Flood; and one of eight persons to live through the Flood. He became the progenitor of the dark races; not the Negroes, but the Egyptians, Ethiopians, Libyans and Canaanites.

      To all of you who would like to believe this article, remember the Most High Yah knows who his people are. If you think they were being called a byword "Africa American" back then, then you really need to do some research. The point being, Europeans are of the seed of Japheth w/ many mixed w/ other identities. Read the curses of Deutoronomy 28 and tell me who they line up w/? You can twist scriptures all day, but you know for a fact that so called AA are the Hebrew Israelites of the bible. You come w/ pointless debunks to satisfy your own inner hatreds towards this group. And the other being pure plain fear! Yes fear that the Most High Yah sees what has been and is being done to His chosen people. Common sense should make you consider one simply statement, why did such turmoil hit this one group of people on earth? If you are honest w/ yourself and believe one word of the bible, know for certain that AA are the Hebrew Israelites of the bible. And do some research on Olmec people. This will give you another exactly of the ancient peoples that ruled the world. Whether Asians, Europeans, or other ethnic groups want to believe or not, yes, you came from a Afro ancestor. How? All of Noah's sons, including Noah were black people. It was only after the twisting of the languages at Babel did the seed of Japeth go NORTH to settle. It was in the NORTH (or today's European/Asian nations) did they start to turn in color and other aspects because of the client over many many years of cold and other elements pertaining to such. Why do you think most Europeans love the cold? Come on folks. This is not about racism. The masses have been mislead and lied to and you my friends have been too! God's chosen people are those whom you call AA, West Indian (Carribeans islands), South America, etc. All that have descendants of the Trans Atlantic slave trade. Again, go read the curses of Deutoronomy 28. And when you do, pull up slave history and see that the curses line DIRECTLY up w/ those slaves whom are the fathers of so called AA. This is such a big debated topic today because Yah is waking up His chosen people. Which means, Yah is turning BACK towards His chosen people. Which means the numbers of the Gentiles (non Hebrew Israelites) are coming close to a conclusion. And if Yah turns back towards His people, WOE unto the rest of the world. Wake up and leave the hatred behind. For many centuries was this lie aloud to stand ground. However today, it is being proven without a shadow of a doubt. You can either accept it or you can beat yourselves up over it. The Messiah's name was NOT Jesus. His name was Yahushua, Yahshua, Yeshsua. All the same in meaning. Different in translation on by a little. Yes it is a bad thing to know that many hate AA for no reason whatsoever $6! They've done absolutely nothing to any other these people but fight to survive. And to add to the racism of many, now the Messiah came through this same people?!! And the Messiah was sent from Yah?!! A lot to decipher and to take in. But know for certain, the truth will continue to be laid out. You can cry, try to debunk over and over, accept it, or refuse it. But the fact remains, it is what it is! AA's for centuries believed the white Jesus was the Messhiah. But now that is proven to be a lie. Only images of Ceasar Borgia. Think about it folks. You can feel relief at this article or you can research it for yourself. The fact is, AA are a direct descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Israel). And many are Igbo people. Who where the most rebellious and intimidating slaves of the slaves. Who were in fact direct descendants of the tribe of Judah. Research for yourselves. And who came through Judah? King David, King Solomon, and King of ALL, Yahushua the Messiah whom many call Jesus today. Again, research it for yourself. But when you do, take tears, hatred, and anger out of the equation. In fact, leave only fear. Why? Because maybe that fear will get you to see the truth and to get onboard and too be saved.

      And I quote from the book of Jasher another testament to the holy scriptures ...

      Jasher 10:6-10

      6 "And the sons of Japheth the son of Noah went and built themselves cities in the places where they were scattered, and they called all their cities after their names, and the sons of Japheth were divided upon the face of the earth into many divisions and languages."

      7 "And these are the sons of Japheth according to their families, Gomer, Magog, Medai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech and Tiras; these are the children of Japheth according to their generations."

      8 " And the children of Gomer, according to their cities, were the Francum, who dwell in the land of Franza, by the river Franza, by the river Senah."

      9 "And the children of Rephath are the Bartonim, who dwell in the land of Bartonia by the river Ledah, which empties its waters in the great sea Gihon, that is, oceanus."

      10 "And the children of Tugarma are ten families, and these are their names: Buzar, Parzunac, Balgar, Elicanum, Ragbib, Tarki, Bid, Zebuc, Ongal and Tilmaz; all these spread and rested in the NORTH and built themselves citities."

      Does any of the names sound like France?

      Atsub 4 years ago

      Now research each of the names submitted ..

      Gomer (גֹּמֶר, Standard Hebrew Gómer, Tiberian Hebrew Gōmer, pronounced [ɡoˈmeʁ]) was the eldest son of Japheth (and of the Japhetic line), and father of Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah, according to the "Table of Nations" in the Hebrew Bible, (Genesis 10).

      Notice Ashkenaz ... who are those in Israel now, yep, Askenazi Jews. Now go to Revelations 2:9

      Revelation 2:9

      King James Version (KJV)

      9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

      Why would the Messiah fortell this? And who calls themselves Jews today? And where do you see the lineage of Jews falling under? Certainly not Shem for whom Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Israel) came? So this prophecy forfills itself right there. Bottom line is that Japheth is the father of the Euro nations.

      Atsub 4 years ago

      Typo. Meant to say that those who call themselves Jews today ARE NOT the lineage of Shem for which Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob fell. They are the lineage of JAPHETH! And the other Euro nations are under Japheth as well. Which means, England, France, Russia, Spain, etc. They are NOT the seed of Shem. They are not of any blood lineage of the Jews of the bible! They are what the bible would call Gentiles for which Saul (Paul) came to proclaim the gospel to. Messiah came for the lost sheep of house of Israel. He mentioned that many times in the scriptures. And He sent Paul after his resurrection to proclaim to the Gentiles and/or Greeks. Which could be Hamitic, Japheth, and other Shem seed such as Ismael, Abrahams oldest son. And no he would not be a Israelite. The only way you can be a blood Israelite is to be through ONE of the 12 sons of Jacob. And they are called the 12 Tribes of Israel. Judah was but ONE and the Messiah came through him. And MOSES came through Levi. Research people!!

      Genesis 15:

      11 And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away.

      12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.

      13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;

      Abraham my friends saw his seed being enslaved. Now the years of slavery and affliction in America are still ongoing. Sure slavery is over, but the prison system is still full of so called Africa Americans. That and other factors can be considered affliction. And these are but few of the curses that befell the AA's. Basically Abraham saw his seed in Egypt and in America and/or Trans Atlantic slave trade being enslaved and afflicted. The journey of the Israelites into Egypt was over 400 years. I believe most research equates it to 430 years. And Yah took them out by the hand of Moses (Tribe of Levi). And they went down walking to be w/ their brother Joseph who was high in ranks under Pharoah. Then they were enslaved. THEIR descendants went into slavery again a few times. And the finally their descendants flocked into Africa fleeing Roman and Arab persecution, migrated to blind in w/ the Africans (seed of Ham) that looked just like them, and the Africans conspired w/ the Europeans/Arabs to sell the Hebrew refugees into slavery. Just because the Hebrews and Africans looked alike doesn't mean they could not be told apart. The customs, language, dress, etc all gave the Hebrews away to mainly the Africans. And the Africans took goods from the Euro as payment. Think about it, would you sell your sister, brother, mother, father, or cousin into slavery? But they did it to the refugees. And these are all fulfillment of the curses for breaking the covenant of Yah that Moses brought to the Hebrews on the mountain which they agreed too! And when they didn't honor it after countless warnings from Yah, he brought those curses down on them. And slavery in America was one of the curses as well as other nations throughout the world. You can't make this stuff up people. It is true! AA are the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob! Love it or hate it, it's true! That bible is AA history and world history. God chose Himself a people to be leaders and a priestly people. And those where through Abraham. You ever wonder why so many AA have that spirit back towards Yah. How they jump, shout, cry, sing, Holy Spirit, etc? Doesn't that make you wonder just a little bit? The Gentiles received the blessings when the Hebrews didn't honor it. These are the modern day rulers of the earth. They have been blessed through the Hebrews fall. And many nations been blessed because the Hebrews been under that nation for some time. Read that bible folks!

      I am glad that God not man will judge who is believer or not. It is Lord’s business. Remember God did not say who will return to Promise Land and first they must be good and perfect. All descendants of Jews and relatives, who have hart to return, returned, but Lord will deal with their faith later. He already is doing it.

      It is not up to us to judge what is in man's heart.

      I can't see how someone would post biblically incorrect messages on hub, and to make a point to those less inform, and trying to sound Godly. Because all of it is lies.....Shem descendants intermixed with Canaanites, and numerous descendants of Ham in the bible....continuing all though biblical history...and saying Solom wasn't talking literally is not the truth...Then what about rigtheous Job (Job 30:30) and Jeremiah in lamentation 4:8 Job said "my skin is black upon me" Jeremiah said "Their Visage is blacker than coal" who was Jeremiah talking about "The children of Zion" the holy children....Abraham married two black women; Hagar and Keturah. Keturah was the dauther of Joktan (Shem son). What about Judah marrying a Canaanite.....Joseph two half Egytian sons, they later became tribemen in Israel, Simeon marry a canaanite for Shechem (took them captives after destroying the city). Levi married a canaanite, Aaron married a canaanite...Mose lived in a black Pharaod home 40 years, because he too was black....The medinites he run too...wife and father-in-law were from the tribe of Midian, Abraham and Keturah son......Now to the point Rahab "the whore" Mother of Boaz, who Married Ruth, ancestors of "Jesus" now , read REV...and see the truth, "Hair like wool and feet like bronze" and see our Lord was also a man of color....people lies to hide the truth....well it time to set lies straight....and I don't have to theorized the truth, a lie need some theory in it just like what was posted which was theorized and filled with untruths....saying the good black people....I knew I was a christian when I though I was only a gentile, but I know the truth now and want the world to know...anyone can be save regardless of race....We have being told that American Blacks came from Africa, it the truth, but not the whole truth. Canaanites own all of the land that God promise Israel. Abraham son Joktan clan live in Aribia.....Mostly all of lower Asia was black "descendants of Ham" country in biblical your bible and check historical records of who these people were and see the truth.

      Deutoronomy: 28: 1 - 68 doesn't mean that the children of Yisrael, had to cross back over the red sea into Mitzrayam or so called Egypt which it is called today. See the word (egypt) it self means a condition of slavery. See we the true Yisraelites, was brought back into slavey because our four fathers disobeyed (YhWh) Laws period. There is know known other race of people on planet eret or earth that fits the condition in Deuteronomy: 28: verses 1 - 68 but the so called bywords metioned in the Bible nigger, colored, black, and now so called african american. Know other race of people was ever taken into slavery by ships but the blacks in USA 400 years ago last week and today bottom line. We are not descendents of Ham, nor can any Khazar Jew, claim anti semitic because they are not from Shem they are gentiles, whites, Caucasians period. Also the word jew does not exist because in the Hebrew alphabets the letter J does not exist. There is no need for further comments learn how to call YhWh by his real Hebrew name and not Baal or lord, master are the word god which is a title. Hosea: 2: 16 - 17 look up the word baal. Acts: 5: 30 Acts: 13 : 29 where did the cross come from. Psalms: 68: 4 the father name is YAH NOT jah once again there are no J's in the Hebrew alphabets nor in the greek alphabets. Also YhWh, or the Father did not tell Moshe or Moses (I am that I am) that is not what YhWh said he said Ehyeh Asher Ehweh (I be what am will to be) Genesis: 10: 21 speak about the genealogy of Shem, and out of his sons one of them was named Eber, and Eber means Hebrew. Now in Genesis: 11: 1 says (The whole world was of one language and one speech) so now what do you think the world was speaking. look it up Psalms: 119: 1 - 176 the Hebrew alphabet are there. Revelation: 2: 9 & 3: 9 for you so called jews. And last Deuteronomy: 28: 33, 37, 41, 45, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67 and 68. In the name of Yeshua Hamashiach Seleh.

      It is sad to see people piece together parts of a puzzle that don't match and present it as fact.. There are so many points that have been made by the author that are baseless, fictional, closed minded and just plain ignorant..

      A description of Noah is given in the book of Enoch, from which it is clear to any reasonable mind that he was in fact a black albino..

      Funny how the author describes the Chinese as being the descendants of Shem.. Well I know for a scientific fact that the Chinese originate from black African ancestors... This has been proved by Chinese scientists themselves using DNA.. Which I have to say, goes to prove that Shem was either black African or was descended from one.. Funny how that works..

      Throughout the history of the Hebrews almost all of their patriarchs have settled in Africa.. From Abraham to yeshua(Jesus).. Jacob died in Africa his sons (12 tribes) all lived out their lives there.. His beloved son Joseph had 2 sons with an African, who were blessed and added to the tribes of israel.. In fact Israel only became a people in africa where they formed their culture and grew for about 400 years... And yes some of them intermarried.. Moses was as African as pharoah was...! He went on and married an Ethiopian( not the same as the country today).. Yeshua(jesus ) went to Africa to hide out.. Only in Africa could he blend in like a needle in a haystack.. Throughout the bible prominent israelites have been mistaken for Egyptians (black African).e.g.. Paul the apostle..the earliest images of yeshua depict him as a black man such as the painting in the Vatican which the pope Bowes to behind closed vails.., including paintings left in ancient roman catacombs.. And throughout Europe..

      I am not saying that black Americans are the only descendants of the tribes.. What I am saying is that they do in fact have as legitimate a claim as any so called Jew does today....

      In all honesty, this topic is only an issue because of racism.. Black people are an old, strong and beautiful people.. Many Greek scholars looked to Africa for wisdom in all things and gave her, her credit..

      The truth hurts but it doesn't have to..

      The black hewbrew israelites are a black supremisist hate group. They believe when they get to heaven , that they get to enslave white people. Ive heard them go on and on about how they are going to beat, rape and murder their white slaves when they get to heaven. They believe everyone was black.... adam & eve... abraham... King David and Jocab. They call white people Edomites because of Esau coming out looking red. They say Esau was the first white man. They don't want to understand that the Lords judgement was already carried out when the edomite kingdom was destroyed. They don't realize it wasn't Esau appearance, but Edom's actions against Israel. They don't understand that the sons(white people) of Japheth, Noah's oldest son lived to the north and west in Gomer and Magog which later migrated to what is now europe. They will claim to be Semites(shem) and Japhites ,but run away from Ham and will call everyone else Hamites and Edomites. They believe that THEY are the comforter and by blood alone they will go to heaven. They believe EGYPT is a code word for AMERICA. They will tell you that the people currently living in israel are imposters. They believe that all royal bloodlines in europe are african. They believe they have a pure unbroken bloodline going all the way back to israel. They do not accept Jesus for who He is.

      No way those jews{named after their religion judaism} in Israel now are true Hebrew descendants from the lineage of Shem.We do have to feel bad anymore these truths are coming to light.It does not matter if one likes it or not this is prophecy.The 10 Northern tribes who were scattered first because they broke the covenant with YAHWEH first are our Native Americans and Peurto Ricans,Dominicans etc. etc who went into captivity during the Assyrian captivity.Us so called blacks in America are from Yahuda{falsely called Judah but there was no letter J in the Hebrew alphabet so they just made the term up to fit their agenda}Levi are our Haitian bros and Jamaicans are from the tribe of Benjamin and this is not even a debate anymore.White slave traders documented where they took us.Look up the Trans Atlantic slave trade routes and from where they took us from in Africa.We fled into Africa 70 A.D. to escape Roman persecution and before that we fled from the Grecian wars as well.Read the book called the icons who do you think fought in those Coliseum fights slaves{of Hebrew descent}

      Canaan is Israel today. Remember that Yah gave the land of Canaan to Abraham, Yah took the land of Canaan from Canaan because they stole the clothing of A'dam and Hawwah . As Abraham was black man. In fact all of the people on the earth at the beginning was black. Yahshua created men in His own image and likeness. We all should know by now that Messiah was black and not white. Yah said I change not! The Hebrews did not change from black to white. Read Amos 9:7. We might as well and except the truth because Yah is not going to change. Most African American do not know who they are. In Psalms chapter 83, HE tell His people they would forget who they are. Remember my people as slave could not speak their language or wishop their believe.

      The companion who most resembles 'Eesaa (Jesus), may Allaah exalt hi mention, is'Urwah Ibn Mas’ood .

      See this is what y'all get for not doing your studying, African Americans are the seed of Shem, frist off there are different nation of black people, so yes didn't migrated to Africa after the flood, but Shem fled into Africa from the Roman Empire to hide among the other dark skin people so they would not be captured in the killed, and then Deuteronomy 28 tells you that they were sold into slavery by ships too many different nation, and also in Deuteronomy 28 God said you can identify his people by the curses in which black people in America and all across the four corners of the world that were sold into slavery fit all of the curses and plus they went to those nations but ships to be slaves.

Whites (Japheth) are dominant in society and rule the world, so I don't understand their complaint. Blacks (Ham) are the richest people and talented on the planet. They are famous in media, sports, music, etc. They are not cursed, but blessed as the youngest of the brothers. Shem on the other hand is the least respected. Shem Orientals Chinese/Mongolians accomplished and invented many things yet remain humble about it. They are living up to their patriarch Shem by being honorable people. They are very spiritual people and it shows throughout their actions in daily life.

      "African-Americans have been blessed by God after they were brought to America, and they have also been a blessing to America."

      I'm utterly amazed how arrogant and blind you people are. The Massa has always believed he knows what’s best for he's property (the slave), and that attitude still lingers on today.

      You actually believe; taking a tribal people away from their homeland, by force I might add, is a blessing. Do you really think, ripping family members away from family members, never to see them again; a sister from a brother or a mother from a father. Please tell me, how you white people will feel the day your families are taken from you; and your taken from your homeland and are forced to work for nothing, as you build homes and plant vineyards but unable to partake in end result of your labor.

      How would you feel if your family we’re hanged on trees etc.

      Do you really believe; being brought to the Americas and being taught to be materialistic as your people are is good thing? I think not. Believe it or not, blacks are not free.

      African Americans may be physically free, but not spiritually, they are still slaves working for the slave masters.

      (Massa) -The slaves were using a Hebrew, (Massa) a word to describe their slave masters as one who brings or is their burden.

      I have to ask.... If the explanation for "ships" is because God was not going to part the red sea for them to return back to Egypt... Regardless of how they got back to Egypt, they were going back to slavery which is a horrible curse like u stated. So why would it matter how they got back?? So your explanation is some what irrelevant. Secondly, you stated that ' no one will buy you' means your worthless. But.. As a slave.. Wouldn't it be a good tthing that no one wants you? That equals out to remaining free. What it means is tthat no one will buy your freedom. What would be the point in cursing someone with slavery, only to... Well not be a slave because no one purchased you? Where's the curse in that?? Third, there is no explanation for the Solomon verse except for what it says which is I'M BLACK BUT COMELY, as in beautiful. Thank you

      You said that the Hebrews wouldhhave to cross the red sea in order to get back into Egypt. That is not true. They could have walked because the land was connected. The only reason The most high said ships was because ships were the only option. Since the land was connected, mentioning how they would get there would be meaningless. In fact, making them walk instead of resting their limbs on a ship would have been even more punishment. Thus referring not to Egypt itself.

      This article is nonsensical. It is not based on any thing factual. It's efforts to use biblical scripture to defend this is laughable because the Torah or bible proves exactly the opposite. If you use scripture, it states that Neburcenezer build cities or kingdoms in the East (middle east). He established for example Babylon, Syria, and others in the East Africa. As an aside, the from the border of Turkey down to the Sinia Pennesular crossing over into what is now called Africa's borders. But, back to Nebucenezer whom God proclaimed is a great warrior, was Hamitic. So, the lands he obtained also were inhabited by Hamites from "Africa". This article goes into so many areas that are not scholarly complete although it would attempt to do this. It has failed.

      The history of so-called African Americans (Israelites) is revealed from Genesis to Revelations. Deuteronomy 28 is a revealing of what has happened to the 3 tribes that were shipped away to all 4 corners of the world to be sold as bondmen and bondwomen. The other 9 tribes remain on the continent of Africa. These people are the only people who have received the results of the Bible writing of Blessings and Curses. Read about their imposters in Rev. 2:9,3:9.

      African Americans also known by all the other by-word names, Coloreds, Negroes, Darkies, Blacks, etc. are very much descendants of Shem-Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the true people chosen by the God of Israel to teach the rest of the sons of Adam/the world, His true and living word.

      Rev 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

      Rev 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

      After reading these verses, ask yourself "Who are the people who say they are Jews? " The chosen people are descendants of Jacob's 12 sons. Jews are members of one of the tribes of Israel-Judah, one of the sons of Jacob; not his twin brother, Esau (father of the so-called Jews/ Edomites/Idumeans in Israel, today). Jacob and Esau were twins, born in the bloodline of Shem. There are 11 other sons of Jacob, all of whom were Israelites (not Israelis), so-called African Americans of today and the other 9 tribes scattered over Africa. All the sons and descendants of Jacob are Israelites, but all of the sons are not Jews.

      Kem/Chem and Kam/Cham are the same. They are brothers, same blood. Show me a so called Hamitic language. Europe was the Northern Kingdom of Black Chemites. Africa the Southern Kingdom.

      Afro-Asiatic and Bantu languages are Xemetic or Kemetic/Chemetic. Zulu, Ibo, Amharic, Geez etc. furthermore the languages of the brothers in East Asia and Southeast Asia and Melanesia are Kemetic and still use the Ancient African (Hero)glyph system. Egyptians were the first to do circumcision, circumcision is prevelant throughout Africa and it is ANCIENT and CULTURAL. First Americans also speak ancient dialects of ancient Hebrew. They kept commandments such as Fringed garments. They wore stars of David/Saturn. I'll give some examples in Hangul (Korean) the word Uju for Universe/Cosmos is a man and woman side by side. Furthermore the glyph in Chinese for the word Black in both Mandarin and Cantonese is of a man with tassled/fringed loincloth if you use it as in the form of Black (as a person) you get a tent next to him. All languages lack a V sound which is the modern Siboleth/Shiboleth. Hebrews use the W as Wa, Wo, Wu. etc (ofcourse we did not write vowels which is also in common). In Chinese Dark/Black = Wu. but also Xia, Xi, Xu. In Chinese the savior of the Flood is named Nuwa. The son of Kush/Cush was a a King of the D(r)avidians named Rama in Southern India. He also named the Mountains. Kush Mountains. The word Dan in Hangul means ALTER. for which The tribe of Dan was known for idol worship. His symbol is the Naga (Serpent/Dragon). Dan is a common word/tribe in the East there is still a Tribe of Dan in West Africa numbering some 400,000. Furthermore Samsun (Man of the Sun) was of the tribe of Dan it is also as you know a giant Korean company in Korean Xemenism/origin we the Samseong Gung (3 stage temple) ref. to the 3 Kingdoms. Sam is another word for Black. So we Have Sam Sun. or Sam Son/ Sone of Black Man of the Sun. Black Sam, Sambo, which is Seba/ etc. Sam is prevalant in Asia andWe have the Month of Nissan. The Dogon (A tribe in Africa), Dagon ( Phillipines/Phillistines), Dangun (Founder of Korea) a Black Asian or Xemite. Dragon brings us back to the Naga - Black race of Kings. As in Geez - Negus King of Kings. The links between Africa (which is Eden or Is.Ra.El - 3) and Asia extending all the way the Amarucas is amazing and undeniable I can go on for days. This is for the Sheep not the Goats. Shaka Zulu, Mandela all hebrew words etc etc. Chichewa, Cebueno, Yoruba, Igbo and Swahili as well as Mande etc are all over old maps of the Americas. Look at the first map of Virgina. The Nantecote (Nantucket named) were Mande from Judah: FACT. You can the old slave bills advertising Heebos (Hebrews) for sale. Negros, Natives, Jim Crow. Some were brought as Duet. others came here from Asia and Africa. The rest from were Jacobites fleeing the wight invasions of Europe. Cromwell London fire 1666 King Charles was a Black Man. Switzerland means Black land. Europe. Many so called African Americans carry the royal bloodlines of Europe. Europe is North Africa.

      Xemetic word for God is N.G.R.

      The X as in Asia in the Americas creates the Sh/Ch sound.

      ex. Mayan Xcalak = Shkalak.

      I read your interpretation of scripture and attempt to Troy to deny the blatant clarity of Gods word. It seems that you are in denial as you try to explain away what the hood of Deuteronomy 28 states. Here are no other people on the face of the earth that ever fulfilled this scripture such as the black man. I know that you cannot compare the Holocaust which was evil to the innumerable slaves that where taken from the ivory, and gold cost of Africa by slave trader. They where not enslaved throughout the nations of the world like God warned Moses, and bought and sold by other men. Show me that in your historical research. The question is who where the original children of Noah and the DNA evidence that has come about in our times will prove the truth. Our nation has hidden many records of African American, Negros, or whatever they decided tools bel us to keep-us from seeking the truth. History books are rigged with half of our history and not enough to educate any one, because ignorance was e plot. The European historians created our reality and history through the watered down and corrupted educational system and thus everyone is ignorant. You need to look deeper and pray to The Lord for clearer discernment to understand how history was corrupted and twisted to keep slaves blinded in slavery. God said in Deuteronomy that other nation would take here identity and names and cause them to serve other gods and this the American way. It is not about black and white for me, but a quest for the truth that will set us free. Paul was thought to be an Egyptian by the Romans did you know this, what color where's original Egyptians black.look at the historical art rendering on there own walls. Look at the Syrians historically history of the original Jewish israelites slaves. You need to look in the history of other cutters that have no bias and see what there records state before you make such broad statement about evidential history. I have nothing to prove being a black man in America, because I am reminded about being black every day. It's not my excuse but my purpose and identity in the earth. God knows if we as black men need to know our history, and there lies our true identity. Jesus is the way the truth and the life, and no man comes to the father except through him, and this is my mission to find the way, the truth, and the life of our existence in Christ alone.

      Truth 10 months ago

      This article is a lie and should not be taking serious. Israelites continued to disobey Yahuah commandments and went into captivity. No other nation on this earth went into slavery. Why do you think so called blacks were not allowed to read the bible. Because the bible is talking about out them. Stop trying to cover up the truth. Prophecy is prophecy and the real Jews are waking up by the hundreds. Ps. U would get destroyed in a debate lol.

      Evidence of slavery predates written records. Slavery was known in civilizations as old as Sumer, as well as in almost every other ancient civilization, including Ancient Egypt, Ancient China, the Akkadian Empire, Assyria, Ancient Greece, the Roman Empire, the Islamic Caliphate and Sultanate, and the pre-Columbian civilizations of the Americas.[11] Such institutions were a mixture of debt-slavery, punishment for crime, the enslavement of prisoners of war, child abandonment, and the birth of slave children to slaves.[12]

      First you say Moses warned the people they would never see Egypt again. Then you say God would take the people back to Egypt as a punishment, only this time in ships. Gods word is NOT contradictory. Yet your interpretation of Deuteronomy 28:68 is a complete contradiction and bastardization of the meaning. Egypt in this verse is NOT literal. It is figurative as Egypt was known as The House of Bondage, thus this verse is referring to bondage. Shame on you Hub for being so ridiculously mis-leading. You are well aware Of the meaning of Egypt in a non-literal sense. Furthermore, IF God sent the people back into a literal Egypt as punishment, I imagine Pharaoh would have been thrilled to have his free labor return since he changed his mind about letting them go.

      As for the readers of this verse, do yourselves a tremendous favor and READ THE ENTIRE CHAPTER and RESEARCH ANCIENT BIBLICAL HISTORY concerning the fall of Jerusalem and the scattering of its people. The curses in Deuteronomy 28 were fulfilled and are still being fulfilled to this day. Sheesh people -READ BOOKS! Stop getting your understanding from others and find out for yourselves!

      It was kinda funny reading that article trying to stop the fulfillment of the most highs prophecy. We know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Israelites broke Gods laws Jearusallem was destroyed by the Romans remember, so of course they broke the laws of God. They fled into Africa we know that already the maps of Africa from the 1600s and 1700s don't lie the Kingdom of Judah is very clear for all to see. Isn't it ironic that the same location used as a major slave port was very close to where the Israelites lived in Africa. All along the western coast of Africa into the central parts of the country black Hebrew Israelites were living and taken as captives into slavery. So please stop lying the jig is up we know the whole truth now you can't stop this truth from going out to all the people. You can't win against the will of God your time is almost up just like the Egyptians. Look at the bright side of things at least you know it's coming the Egyptians never saw it coming.

      Truth of the most High 2 months ago

      You said Shem is the eldest of Noah's sons....WRONG!

      Genesis 10:21 KJV

      [21] Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born.

      Japheth is the eldest of the three sons. Hãm is the youngest.

      Zondervan’s Compact Bible Dictionary:

      Ham – The youngest son of Noah, born probably about 96 years before the Flood; and one of eight persons to live through the Flood. He became the progenitor of the dark races; not the Negroes, but the Egyptians, Ethiopians, Libyans and Canaanites.

      You think you're slick by trying to prove the Israelites aren't Negroes, but you're exposing who you are!

      The descendants of Ham and Shem always intermarried throughout the Old Testament. Remember Phinehas? Whose name means black he was The first priest of Israel I remember that a mix multitude left together in the exodus. I would suggest to read the Bible start in genesis to see The mixing of Ham and Shem's descendants. You can also see in Jesus's genealogy he had Hamite ancestors. Shalom!

      A Horrible review. The Israelites were often confused for Egyptians & Ethiopians....The Israelites were a dark skinned people, As was the Messiah who was from the Tribe of Judah.

      The descendants of the American slave trade are the Israelites the Holy Word speaks of. Israel fled into Egypt (like Christ and his parents) and throughout the African continent after the destruction of Jerusalem by Rome in 70AD. Settling on the western coasts, Native Africans & Arabs conspired to sell the Israelites to the Europeans (Joel 3)..From psalms 83, We know it will NEVER be admitted who we really are, because you then have to indentify our Enemies...

      Satans weapon of War 11 hours ago

      Satans greatest weapon is going to be blood wars , DNA , it will be distorted to mans vain attempt to think there genes are superior .

      Let me remind us that Jesus said, that he could turn rocks into Abrahams seed, meaning whosoever will by faith Believe in him shall be saved.

      Remember this was said about the true descendants are those ,that come to Christ , and that Jews and Gentiles all have to be grafted back into the olive branches , The Jews grafted back into their own tree and Gentiles . Didn't Jesus say there is neither Jew or Gentile in Christ , but we are all apart of the Bride of Christ .

      The world is so obessesed with Color , that we may all get a rude awakening when we stand before him face to face to give a accounting for every word .

      With that being said , this world may of Started with Black Adam and a fair Eve in which you can make every shade of browns , tans ect. The first DNA was probably load up with all sorts of suprizes , considering they where created with the genes to not die but then sin enter in the rest where born already with a sin nature . Keep in mind Cains line actually brought forth Noah , overlooked continually , my Guess his sons chose wives from Seths line , but out of all the people on the earth God saved how many on the Ark ????? Sad , just one family .

      Keep in mind all the DNA from both lines came through on that ark ,some resscive genes that may not of showed up quickly .

      God hid the children of Israel in the wilderness from Satan , what would be a way to hide the line

      Well as we have seen God has a sense of humor , Joseph had a coat of many colors and time has mixed the races over and over and back again . A great hiding DNA -

      Why do you think scientist want to deleted supposable junk genes or add some genes -

      Satan is on the hunt again for the seed that crushed his head , his time is short now and that's why paganism and fables , imaginations , nephluim obsessions which will be really a witch hunt

      To kill All Gods people in every color , a join or die sort of thing .

      Jesus said if you love me feed my sheep , that he has other sheep too .

      It's no coincidence that there is dna OBA minations going on right now - all the blood types are in those first three letters .

      We should be wise as serpents and harmless as doves .

      If you think you are from Shems bloodline then remember only a remnant has been being saved

      Because of unbelief in Christ and reading the book of Hebrew will show history keeps repeating itself . That it was the Jews that want Christ crucified because he did not fit there profile - wrong color , wrong eyes , wrong hair color ? Plus he had a greater plan we all sinned and have fell short of the Glory of God - our goodness the Bible says is like filthy rags compared to Gods righteousness - I think that pretty much puts us in Reality - the Lord said if we won't forgive , we will not be forgiven - Racisim breeds Massacres and it's no respecter of color - whites , blacks , browns & reds Indians ,Chinese and all the people - It is vain to think Jesus is going to love one color above another in Heaven - We will all be family , start practicing loving one another his greatest commandment he left to us otherwise we become cylinkling symbol , unusable to be a witness to a lost and dying world . it is appointed unto man once to die , the judgement .

      Choose Christ Jesus and receive his mercy and pardon , being sealed by the Holy Spirit until the day your redeemed - LOVE ONE Another -

      Maybe some of you are being told you are part nephuilm , well doubtful but even so , he died for curses too . We love him because he first loved us . He sought us out -

      Don't lose your crown over thinking , you are more or less loved because of your DNA .

      Thank him for what yours is and be grateful and appreciate your own unique attributes .

      If he gave you brown hair or blond or black or red , brown , blue , grey , green , eyes , thank him

      If you have wavy , super curly , straight hair or bald thank him .

      We are to be a grateful people , thankful in all things .

      He said the World will hate us , because they hated him first , let it be for his namesake not are looks . Confess this sin and move on , if you are a Christian Jew personally Israel will be ruff many will be killed . Go to the mountains -

      In the Song of Solomon - King Solomon was King David's son Jesus came thru this line

      Anyways - Solomon is described by the woman that Loves him as being white , with a red beryl tint , with wavy raven black hair ,(which has no red or gold highlights ) it looks like diamonds in the sunshine very shiny hair , she describes his eyes like a river with milk grey brown blue milky

      (A sort of hazel ). She is described as being despised by her sisters because she works in the field and it's made her skin so dark - but she was lovely and she had the Love of the king . A true love story that transcends color- , who knows what all there children and there children looked like but I'm guessing lighter , red light , red tan , dark tan , tan , red brown , tan black and darker black . Sounds like a coat of many colors , plus both their genes can have rescesive hair colors and eyes -

      Who knows what Christ ended up looking like and that is probably why it's not told , so that you will love him for who he is and what he did for you , not because he has a curled toe or a freckle

      He is coming back in his glorified body , just like the ones we get too -

      Can you compare a glorified body to flesh n blood body - No

      These topics are dividing the human race and it's us that lend power to raise up stalins , Hitler's ,

      And all the other race crazy Monsters -

      Bible says think not more highly of yourselve than another -

      God doesn't want a global Babylon again either -

      There is a middle ground

      I'm going on record

      Men are not Royals slaves - MARS - Men are royals slaves - Mars is a deception -

      Babylon will Fall on 7 continents -

      The Lord says Come out of her my people-

      Tiffany 8 hours ago

      Hi Everyone , Just want to add a couple of things because we are seeing so much confusion in these last times .

      Old testament believers and prophets were saved by faith in believing in the messiah to come , they looked forward they did animal sacrifices for a temporary forgiveness of sin and it was accounted as righteousness to them .

      It had to be repeated because it was not the final ultimate Sinless sacrifice the Messiah Jesus Christ would be , book of Isaiah

      Describes Christ Jesus so beautifully as soon as you read it you will know he is speaking of Jesus . Old Testament believers longed to see what we have seen in the New Testament scriptures .

      They waited and waited some eventually did when Christ was born -

      Some recognized him as the Messiah , but most Jews did not recognize there own Messiah

      Jesus Wept knowing he was going to be rejected by the ones that had been waiting and waiting and waiting - so the Gentiles where given the commission to preach the gospel and carry it into all the nations since then , most Jews have fallen to paganism half truths , some do follow the Old Testament but animal sacerficed ceased , And a remnant has been saved right longside of Gentiles - New testament believers after the resurrection look back to the cross thru faith , and his sacrifice was final it tore the veil in two , man can have a right relationship and fellowship , he can go straight to God for forgiveness of sins , Jesus is the mediator and says not guilty , washed in his blood made white as snow .

      We don't need a priest to say if we are forgiven -

      Only Christ can do that now he paid are sin debt in full -

      Last thing while many want to be from the line of Shem who wouldn't ❤️ It will not save them

      There is no other name other than faith in Jesus Christ by which you can obtain forgiveness of sins and Eternal life -

      The new Jew believers in Christ had to be told they could not bring the old ways of doing things and mix it with the new way they where trying to put the new wine in old skins . Not under the law anymore .

      They where a new creation in Christ neither Jew or Gentile but equals in Christ .

      Some thought you couldn't eat certain meat but the apostles said that ask the Lord to bless it that all things are permissible now. But if it was a stumbling block to your weaker minded brother

      Obstain - when your with those ones eat what they eat .

      Basically everyone was growing at different rates and areas in their freedom in Christ .

      Anyways those Old Testament saints longed to read and know all of the New Testament writings and to see him with their eyes , just like we do . Just a short time period while he was on earth .

      They looked forward , we look back !!! Faith , Faith , Faith

      Unbelief has always been the problem the Israelites by thousands fell in the wilderness because of unbelief after all God Did thru Moses to lead them out of bondage - so so many returned to paganism

      Worshiping angels and animals and statues and pretty much the same stuff

      All unbelievers are doing today - well we can add No God , No creation , or some mix evolution / creation which not right either.

      My main concern is we are seeing a increase of Black people saying they are the true Jews

      But some are leaving out the fact , you need Christ and that their is neither Jew nor Gentile in Christ Jesus .

      Which hurts your brothers and sisters of all colors when you do that .

      We will be spending eternity together start loving all colors people -

      Can you not honestly say that the most beautiful people you know are those that have inward beauty .

      The New Testament says these flesh and blood bodies are basically tents to house

      The spirit and soul and the heart (mind) .

      That we are just passing thru like strangers in the land , that this is not our home.

      We forget that and these are temporal bodies .

      The love of money is the root of all evil .

      Having to much can ruin you having to little can too

      If that is where your heart is -

      How many have fallen after becoming rich and fall far away from their love for Jesus .

      Jesus said you have not cause you ask not .

      Ask him for what you need .

      The same Heavenly Father made us all , different , when I hear black people saying things like we whites are trying to hide there true identity being Shem , it does sting some ,do you really think that , the average person in the world got together and concocted a plan like that , the only way you could say that is because you have neglected the Bible it's all there , not just bits and pieces .

      There are many many false prophets , ministers , out their and the only way not to become snowed on any of it is to filter what they say thru Gods word , if you don't know Gods word

      Then it's easy to become Satans next victim . "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities , against powers , against the rulers of darkness of this world , againsnt spiritual wickedness in high places . " Ephesians 6:12

      Not all the different colored people of the world .

      We are all in the same boat , pray for one another -

      The Bible says to hide Gods word in your heart , study the scriptures daily . Then you will recognizes liars.

      Love your enemies and pray for them .

      God aloud Slavery , he also aloud wicked nations to Sak his own chosen people because of worshipping false Gods , again and again .

      Same with America God blessed this nation with might and power and to carry the gospel , but as the people grew further and further away from him and we have generations of kids thinking there is no God , hoping we came from Aliens ( fallen angels )

      We are ripe for Judgement . Repent

      Matter of fact we have seen thru history kingdom after kingdom fall . history repeats its self

      They turn from God and after generations evil starts running rabid -Goverments get corrupt too

      Been praying for are brothers and sisters around the world I'm so grieved in my Spirit knowing

      They are suffering too . This should be are focus are family in Christ a bride of many colors .

      Just had this on my heart today , when I think how far America has fallen , makes me cry

      And the hate and racism against each other , I know God hates it and we should hate what he hates. We have all been guilty of it , just remember racism is learned and taught .

      "Love one another being tender hearted toward one another , forgiving one another."

      "Seek first to understand "

      "Trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding "

      Sometimes we judge others so harshly and we get measured that back to us by that same measure we used. ouch ouch ouch

      Most whites don't know where the heck they are from either - most American red Indian and black Indians, Chinese Indians , white Indians ,don't even know who they are anymore either .

      Seems like a lot of people have been made to forget -I think it's Gods protection honestly

      Most know Mom and Dad and grandparents .

      By the time they they think to ask about the roots , the generation that knows something is gone .
