One thing that never ceases to amaze me is how many different theories there are in regards to what happened to the lost tribes of Israel. Since the tribes of Israel were declared lost, and the remnants of the nation of Israel were subsequently scattered to the four corners of the earth, many have come forward proclaiming that they are the true descendants of Israel. Members of the Nation of Yahweh, on the other hand, believe that all of the Old Testament prophets, Jesus Christ, and God Himself are all black.
It was commissioned by King Ptolemy II, a Greek from Macedonia, who became ruler of Egypt following Ptolemy I (a general under Alexander the Great who ruled Egypt after Alexander's death in 323 B.C.). The legend (now disproven) goes that Ptolemy II hired 70 or 72 Israelite scholars to compile their sacred writings for the new Great Library at Alexandria, Egypt, his pet project.
These sons are the beginnings of the twelve tribes of Israel Jacob's name was changed to 'Israel' by an unidentified 'angel', and his descendants thereafter became known as the tribes of Israel, or the Israelites. I do not claim to have perfect knowledge of the teachings and ideas of the many people who identify themselves as Black Hebrew Israelites.
Two main claims are made by this religious movement: (1) All African Americans are the biological descendants of the ancient Hebrews, and (2) The means of diaspora salvation for African Americans is obedience to the Law of Moses. In the Set-Apart Scriptures it clearly states the nationality of African Americans.
• Black Jews, who maintain a Christological perspective and adopt Jewish rituals. The African Hebrew Israelites say they have chosen a way of life dedicated to serving Yah, or God. The Egyptians, Canaanites, Ethiopians, babyloians etc sic were black skinned but they were not Israelites.
James, Peter, and John ministered to the true Hebrew Israelites who were in Jerusalem and Palestine ( Gal 2:7 ). When Paul preached to the true Hebrew Israelites scattered abroad (Jew first, Rom 1:16 ) he did not go to Africa, but to the northern Mediterranean coast around Europe and the Middle East.
I take complete responsibility for any mistakes that I may have made in representing the Black Hebrew Israelites. As you know that the truth is opened to few people, may you have sometimes and try bto visit all the countries in Africa continent and meet those who are thirsty to know the truth.
As a result, the people of England and the United States are the true Israelites. Paul could not possibly be white and be mistaken for a black Egyptian by a European guard. White people are seen as conspirators who attempt to persecute the black people and hide their true identity as Israelites.
The closest to 400 years of slavery ever to happen, was 430 years in Egypt 3. It's been since the year 1619 (Transatlantic Slave Trade) that the Israelites got to the "strange" land (America, etc.) of where they have been mistreated, and it will last for 400 years.
So why is it so hard for many to believe that when we were expelled from out of our land, for our disobedience to Yahuah, that following the example of our ancestors (especially the Messiah) we ALSO fled down into various parts of Africa to hideout, and dwelled among the Hamites just as our people had done on many other occasions throughout history and scripture.
