There is clear evidence in the Holy Bible that Black people all over the world are the descendants of the original Jewish people–making African Americans Jewish too. My ministry, purpose, and cause are to the lost sheep of Israel—the same lost sheep that Jesus, Yeshua’s ministry was to. We are the scattered sheep of Israel. I preach and teach this with confidence and perseverance because not only does Scripture verify it, but I have been blessed with the Word of Knowledge concerning it. I received the word and the commission from Jesus Christ, Yeshua Himself.
Back in 1996, I had an encounter with Jesus, Yeshua that lasted several weeks and months. During this time He told me many wonderful and amazing things. Some of what He said was: my people, Black people would be Kings and Queens again in my lifetime; He said that my family and I were Jewish like He is; He said that Black people all over the world are descendants of the original Jewish people. He said that He was Black. He told me how and why things got so turned around!
I consider President Nelson Mandela and his wife, and President Barack Obama and Michelle as somewhat a fulfillment of the Kings and Queens prophesy because in 1996 it was nowhere in the horizon that Black people would ever become heads of state such as these.
After receiving this revelation knowledge I started to read the Scriptures with wisdom and understanding. I learned all about my(our) history, and our future blessings. I am still today very passionate about getting this understanding out, especially to my Black brothers and sisters—and also to the worldwide Christian Church. While my mission is to lost Israel, I minister to all who are willing to listen and obey.
What I especially want my people to understand is that first and foremost we need to turn our hearts, devotion and our faith continuously to Jesus, Yeshua and finally see Him for who He truly is to us—Our Messiah and King. He came as one of us and we need to recognize that. He came specifically to the lost sheep of Israel—Black people—to save us and to restore us. We need to reverence Him more than ever.
Jesus, Yeshua said, “I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” Matthew 10:6
Secondly—Restore—Jesus, Yeshua came to restore us! There is going to be a restoration of His people and we need to heed the call. This restoration will be in part, a return back to our Hebrew, Jewish heritage. To do this, we need to observe certain Jewish customs such as Sabbath day observance, Jewish holiday observance (such as Yom Kippur, Hanukkah, Purim, Passover, and many others); and we need to observe the biblical dietary law that Jews call Kosher eating. These observances are not to put a yoke on our necks, but instead, are observances that we should feel a sense of love and pride of heritage for—embracing our long lost unknown history. The Book of Romans states that we would be grafted in again to our own olive tree. (Romans 11:23). This is what’s happening now. We ARE being grated into our own olive tree…our own Jewish heritage! Yes! Yom Kippur and all other Jewish holidays are ours to behold.
The L-rd said, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. I will build you up again, and you, Virgin Israel, will be rebuilt. Again you will take up your timbrels and go out to dance with the joyful.” (Jeremiah 31:3-4; A latter-day prophesy for the day we live in now).
I’m simple when it comes to these messages. Love, Trust, Believe In and Hold Onto the
L-rd Jesus Christ, Yeshua and you can’t go wrong. Many people, the first thing they want to do when they are enlightened to their Hebrew/Israelite/Jewish identity is to abandon their Christian upbringing and denounce the L-rd Jesus Christ, Yeshua. This is the wrong approach. It is indeed the L-rd Jesus, Yeshua who is bringing these revelations to you, and making an appeal to you to come closer to Him. It is of utmost importance for me to keep my message Christ-centered. I want to maintain the love, faith, hope, joy and peace of the L-rd, that I learned in my Christian upbringing. To the basics of Christianity, I am adding a higher plane; a higher level of understanding. I am giving you Meat, however, the basics of Christianity, which is called the Milk, is still very important instruction. You must have the milk before you can digest the meat.
I want to end by saying that I confirm all of my knowledge on the subject of Black Jews and Jesus’ Black identity with the Holy Bible. The Bible doctrine is correct and trustworthy—however, one must show himself approved.
“Study to shew thyself approved unto G-d, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15).
That also means to study different Bible translations, because some are misleading. While the Holy Bible, including the Apocrypha, are trustworthy, the meaning of some verses has gotten lost in some translations. I personally lean mostly on the King James Version (KJV), and for more clarity, I use the New International Version (NIV). Early on as a new Christian, I relied on the Amplified Version to help me understand. Bible commentaries within the Bibles are also helpful as is found in the Original African Heritage Study Bible and the NIV Study Bible. Black people need to realize that the whole Bible is centered around you. If only you would read it—and pray for wisdom and understanding when you do. For those who question the total validity of the Bible…I can’t help you there. You’ll have to pray and come to terms about that on your own, between you and the L-rd Jesus, Yeshua.
STAY TUNED….I’m working on a new book to open everyone’s understanding of the Bible concerning this word.
Ultimately, life is promised to get better right here on earth for all who believe in the L-rd Jesus Christ, Yeshua, whether Jew or Gentile. That is the hope I have!
