Who is Israel?

By Arlene Johnson


Some deceits are so insidious that they are a form of mind control. Such is the deceit that the Jews are God's "chosen people." This article will prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Jews are not God's chosen people, and it will use God's words straight from the Bible to do so primarily from what Jews call the Torah (the first five books of the Bible) so that these people cannot claim that I am taking what someone other than what God said to prove this thesis. (Actually, the first five books of the Bible are God's word, but the Jews say that they are the Torah to confuse Christians.)

My extreme thanks and gratitude to Pastor Eli James for enlightening me on this fact. He has expertly analyzed this. All I did was find the verses in the Bible to corroborate what he authored.

In the 18th edition of my e-zine, I published (as the very first article) what I thought was true, that God chose the Jews to be His people to set an example for everyone. Unfortunately (I am sorry Ken.) this is not accurate, so that article will be removed and replaced with the article that is true. This article here in this edition will prove why the original article is not accurate and why its replacement, is.

So, then let us begin to enlighten everyone with the word of God, beginning with THE FIRST BOOK OF MOSES, which is called GENESIS.

Gen. 9:18 "...Ham is the father of Canaan."

Ham was one of the three sons of Noah, the man who built the ark to live while others, who sinned, died in the flood. Noah's other sons are Shem and Japheth.

Gen. 9:22 "And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren [brothers] without [outside].

Gen. 9:23 "And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness."

Gen. 9:24 "And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him."

Gen. 9:25 "And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren."

Gen. 9:26 "And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant."

Gen. 9:27 "God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant."

Gen. 10:6 "And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan."

See also Gen. 10:7-32 for the descendants of these sons which include Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, Sabtecha, Sheba, Dedan, Nimrod, Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, Pathrusim, Casluhim, (out of whom came Philistim,), Caphtorim, Sidon, Heth, and the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgasite, and the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite, and the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite.

Gen. 11:10-27 Shem->Arphaxed->Salah->Eber->Peleg->Reu->Serug->Nahor->Terah->Abram.

Do you see Ham's name here? No, you did not because this is the family line of Shem, for whom Noah decreed that Ham would serve as a servant.

So Abram descended from Shem, not Ham, who is the father of Canaan. You'll see how this ties in later. But for now, just understand that Abram, whose name became Abraham at the hand of God (see Gen. 17:5 because God made him the father of many nations), was not the ancestor of those who claim to be God's chosen ones.

Gen. 12:5 "And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came."

Gen. 12:6 "And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land."

Gen. 13:12 "Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom."

This could be why the Jews claim that they are God's chosen people. But the Bible clearly states that "the Canaanite was in the land."

Gen. 13:13 "But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly."

Gen. 13:14 "And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine [your] eyes, and look from the place where thou [you] art [are] northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:"

Gen. 13:15 "For all the land which thou [you] seest [see], to thee [you] will I give it, and to thy [your] seed for ever."

Gen. 13:16 "And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered."

This means that there would be so many descendants of Abraham, that they could not be numbered, not the small percentage of people who claim to be Jews, which, by their own admission, we all know is small compared with other people.

Gen. 13:18 "Then Abram removed his tent, and came and dwelt in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar unto the LORD."

Gen. 15:18 "In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt [the Nile] unto the great river, the river Euphrates:"

Gen. 15:19 "The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,"

Gen. 15:20 "And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,"

Gen. 15:21 "And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites."

Pastor James wrote the following to clarify so as to educate those of us who would not understand this information otherwise:

"These are the lands that were promised to Abraham and his descendants. Later, his descendants, known as the Israelites, under Joshua, were commanded to take that country away from the Canaanites and to destroy them utterly. These ten Canaanite nations were a mixture of humans and fallen angels. Recall that the Nephilim "saw that the daughters of men were fair and they took them as wives." Well, these were the descendants of those matings. There were still giants among them, of whom Goliath was one of the last.

A Nephilite is a fallen angel being. The nephilim came down to earth with Lucifer when he was banished from heaven. The Canaanite tribe known as the Rephaim are the direct descendants of these Nephilim.

The exact line of descent: Cain -- Kenites -- Canaanites -- Edomites -- Idumeans -- Pharisees -- Jews. Mount Sephar was the area of a major concentration of Canaanites. Hence, they are called Sephardic Jews."

Gen. 16:11 "And the angel of the LORD said unto her, [Hagar, Sarai's Egyptian maid] Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael: because the LORD hath heard thy affliction."

Gen. 16:12 "And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren."

Gen. 17:4 "As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou salt be a father of many nations."

Now, we all know that what we have thought is the nation of Israel, is only one nation, so it logically proves that "many nations" means many nations, as if God meant to say one nation, that is what He would have said.

Gen. 17:5 "Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee."

Gen. 17:6 "And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee."

This verse reinforces what I stated above, that God would make "MANY" nations of Abraham's seed, not just one nation.

Gen. 17:7 "And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto, and to thy seed after thee."

This is what the Jews steal from us-our birthright as the seed of Abraham.

Gen. 17:8 "And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art [are] a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God."

Gen. 17:10 "This is my covenant, which ye [you] shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee [you]: Every man child among you shall be circumcised."

This, clearly, is why Jewish rabbis state that the Jews are God's Chosen, but read further in this analysis. Additionally, nowhere does God say to murder the seed of Ishmael, which is what the Jews who claim to be God's Chosen are doing, violating the Ten Commandments which Moses brought to the people of the area while he lived.

Gen. 17:20 "And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation."

Notice that God states "a great nation" here.

Gen. 17:21 "But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah [see Gen. 17:15 for the change in her name] shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year."

Gen. 21:13 "And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is thy seed."

Gen. 21:14 "And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away; and she departed, and wandered in the wildeness of Beer-sheba."

Gen. 21:15 "And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs."

Gen. 21:16 "And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a bowshot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept."

Gen. 21:17 "And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is."

Gen. 21:18 "Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation."

Gen. 21:19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink."

Gen. 21:20 "And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer."

Gen. 21:21 "And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt."

Gen. 22:17 "That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;"

Gen. 22:18 "And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice."

God stated these words after Abraham agreed to sacrifice Isaac, his son, because God told him to do so as a test of Abraham's faithfulness to God.

Gen. 24:2 "...Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house that ruled over all that he had. Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh:"

Gen. 24:3 "And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell:"

Abraham knew who the Canaanites were; this is why he requested that his eldest servant pledge that his son would not marry a Canaanite woman.

Gen. 24:4 "But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac."

Clearly, this was important to Abraham or he would not have asked the servant to place his hand under Abraham's thigh as in a pledge.

Gen. 24:7 "The LORD God of heaven, which took me from my father's house, and from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and that sware unto me, saying, Unto thy seed will I give this land; he shall send his angel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence."

Gen. 24:37 "And my master made me swear, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife to my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I dwell."

Gen. 24:61 "And Rebecca arose, and her damsels, and they rode upon the camels, and followed the man: and the servant took Rebecca, and went his way."

Gen. 24:67 "And Isaac brought her [Rebecca] into his mother Sarah's tent, and took Rebecca, and she became his wife; and he loved her, and Isaac was comforted after his mother's death."

Gen. 25:1 "THEN again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah."

Gen. 25:2 "And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah."

Gen. 25:12 "Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son of Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bare unto Abraham:"

Gen. 25:13 "And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations; the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,"

Gen. 25:14 "And Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa."

Gen. 25:15 "Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah:"

Gen. 25:16 "These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their towns, and by their castles; twelve princes according to their nations."

Gen. 25:20 "And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebecca to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padan-aram, the sister to Laban the Syrian."

Gen. 25:23 "And the LORD said unto her, [Rebecca] Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger."

Gen. 25:25 "And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau."

Gen. 25:26 "And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was three score years old [60-years-old] when she bare them."
