Before I press on with the primary theme, of this, my second article, on this significant Biblical historical past, we have to set up or decide what a Patriarch is. First and foremost Patriarchs had been essential folks. How and why had been they necessary? They had been necessary as a result of The Godhead made them necessary and it’s basic that we perceive that, they didn’t make themselves necessary. They didn’t set themselves up as Patriarchs, they weren’t little egotistic dictators or tin pot megalomaniacs or tyrants. The title ‘Patriarch’ is a bestowed present; an honour or blessing from The Lord, all a part of His wonderful Grace.
OK, however why had been they necessary and why are they necessary to us in the present day within the 21st century? They had been and are necessary as a result of they had been the unique forefathers or
Progenitors of household dynasties, tribes or clans
that grew to grow to be, on this age in the present day, 13 of the nations of the world we dwell in
. If we’re of Celtic-Anglo-Saxon-Judahite blood then The Patriarchs are our authentic forefathers.
Shem, Ham and Japheth, Noah’s sons, had been Patriarchs too, and it is from Shem that we get Abraham’s lineage plus the lineage of all white peoples. Now The Lord known as Abram and gave him a brand new title – Abraham, and made him a Patriarch, and The Lord informed him that nations, plural, would come from his loins.
Genesis 35:11 (KJV) And God stated unto him, I’m God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply;
a nation and an organization of countries
shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins.
Not just one nation, because the misguided brainwashed majority would have us imagine, however a
COMPANY OF NATIONS
and kings too. As a Patriarch, Abraham would produce different Patriarchs – Isaac and Jacob/Israel his son and grandson had been additionally Patriarchs. Before I transfer on, simply ask your self this query: when had been The Jews
an organization of countries with kings ruling over them? Answers on the again of a postage stamp – thanks!!
Now, after Jacob, who was renamed Israel by The Lord, was that the tip of the Patriarchs? NO, and I ask this, as a result of many, particularly these of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion, imagine that to be the case, however they’re catastrophically flawed. By being so critically flawed they create a gaff of monumental proportions – a chasm of ignorance and error that completely distorts Biblical historical past and its entire message. Even the Gospels, and the identification of most of the supposed recipients of that Good News message, are misunderstood. All the proof is there in each Old and New Testaments, if solely folks would learn and study, however they do not, they like blindness and deceptions, so I’ll now start to disclose this superior Truth.
Back to the Patriarchs, and as I used to be saying, was Jacob/Israel the final of the Patriarchs? The reply to this query is a decisive and resounding NO!! And as at all times we’ll go The Holy Scriptures for our proof and proof. It’s unusual, actually, as a result of the phrase ‘Patriarch’ is nowhere to be discovered within the Old Testament however, quite, within the New Testament and but all of the Patriarchs that ever lived, lived in Old Testament occasions. There are solely 4 verses of Holy Scripture within the KJV that include the phrase Patriarch(s) so I’ll copy them right here:
Acts 2:29 (KJV) Men and brethren, let me freely converse unto you of
that he’s each lifeless and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto at the present time. (Emphasis mine)
Straight means now we have proof that, even tons of of years after Jacob, King David is known as a Patriarch, and he was a Patriarch, however in a really completely different means from the unique Patriarchs. I’ll return to clarify this distinction in a future examine.
Hebrews 7:4 (KJV) Now take into account how nice this man was, unto whom even The Patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.
Acts 7:8-9 “And he gave him the covenant of circumcision: and so Abraham begat Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day; and Isaac begat Jacob; and
e Twelve Patriarchs.
9 And The Patriarchs, moved with envy, offered Joseph into Egypt: however God was with him. (Emphasis mine)
Now right here now we have it in these final two verses of Acts – Jacob begat The Twelve Patriarchs, i.e. Jacob or Israel’s twelve sons by his 4 wives. We should perceive, that these twelve sons had been The Patriarchs of Twelve Family Dynasties that turned The Twelve Tribes or clans, that turned twelve unbiased nations, and these twelve nations are nonetheless with us in the present day. The Judahites and Jews are descendant from solely one among these Twelve Patriarchs and being often known as Judahites and Jews they carry a derivation of their forefather’s title – Judah. Judah is The Patriarchal forefather of the Judahites and Jews solely. He was not the forefather of The Israelites. Judah’s eleven brothers had been his fellow Patriarchs and had been separate particular person progenitors in their very own God given proper to father their very own identities as tribes, clans after which nations. Hence all Judahites are Israelites, however not all Israelites are Judahites. In reality the Judahites are a minority in Israel. You will discover that I’ve not included The Jews right here as Israelites solely Judahites.
OK, having received this far, and already hinted, we now want to grasp that the Jewish line from Judah is a bit more sophisticated than the lineages from different eleven Patriarchs. Judah had an issue of not having the ability to preserve it in his trousers (pants) and he took a flowery to an Adullamites’ daughter (A Canaanitess) named Bathshuah and sired three sons from her, two of whom had been killed by The Lord for his or her wickedness, however the third son survived and he married yet one more Canaanitess thereby beginning the non-Israelite line often known as the Canaanite Jews i.e. non-Jews or what some folks erroneously name crypto-Jews, which they aren’t.
As already acknowledged, the difficulty we now have to return to phrases with is that this, of all of the Israelites, the Judahites/Jews are solely a small half – one tribe solely. Moreover, up till 1947 they weren’t a nation in any respect because of The Lord’s punishment and had been dispersed across the globe. The first diaspora befell in circa 515 BCE (BC) once they had been launched from Babylonian captivity by King Cyrus of Persia and once more in 70 AD when the Romans destroyed Jerusalem utterly. So the Judahites an extended with their half-relations The Canaanite Jews, though a tribe of Israel, have by no means been a correct geographical nation often known as Israel. Most of their existence has been spent as residents, usually persecuted residents, of different nations. Is that necessary, most undoubtedly, as we will see?
We can now clearly see that there have been eleven different Patriarchs who weren’t Judahites/Jews and I’ll listing their names. Yes they had been all brothers however not all full brothers. Jacob/Israel had 4 wives. Two of them had been sisters – Laban’s daughters
and the opposite two had been the hand maids of the sisters –
Leah the elder sister had six sons – Rueben (the eldest son), Simeon,
, Levi, Issachar and Zebulon.
the spouse Jacob liked, had two sons –
and Benjamin (the youngest son)
Zilpah, Leah’s hand maid had two sons, Gad and Asher.
Bilhah, Rachel’s hand maid had two sons additionally, Dan and Naphtali.
Here listed above are The Twelve Patriarchs and every of whom sired their very own Israelite tribe, clan and nation. Now solely one among these was Judah who was the Patriarch of the Royal Judahites and the Canaanite Jews. The different eleven Patriarchs had been Israelites however they weren’t Judahites or Jews. Judah was the primary Judahite/Jew and his offspring solely had been Judahites and Jews.
Now there was one remaining twist to this fascinating story of historic Israel and that twist lay within the story of Joseph’s trials on the hand of his depraved jealous brothers which I’ll proceed with within the subsequent article. Please stick with it.
