13a – Who or What is a “Jew” ?

Judah / Judah-ite / Judean – Jew: Clearing Up The Confusion

By Robertiu on Tue, 07/17/2018

  1. How did the confusion of the word Jew come about?
  2. The word Jew is not as much the problem as the misunderstanding of history and the Bible.  If you have my book Uncovering The Mysteries…, you need to re-read the sections “A Bit of Confusion”, and the other similar sections that follow it (as well as Isaiah 56 in my Apologetic Exposition series, ).

The word Jew is merely a corruption of the Latin Iewe (yoo-ee) which was derived from the Greek Ioudaios (ee-oo-dah-yos) from the Hebrew Yehuda.  The issue is not so much the word, but the confusion that people think God’s Israelites and Judah-ites are the Jews / Israelis, when in reality the Anglo-Saxon and kindred peoples of Christendom are Israel—whom God scattered throughout the world and promised that He would one day regather them (which He began doing through their conversion to Christ, back to the God of their fathers before God sent blindness upon them and they descended into paganism in their dispersion).  God said that they would have a new name and that they would have a new land, but in the end of time God would regather whom He scattered.  

[See my book Uncovering the Mysteries of Your Hidden Inheritance, as well as my booklets, God’s Chosen People and Are You An Anti-Semite?]

Even as all of Christendom is being overrun by aliens and our people replaced entirely in a few decades before our very eyes—the very same thing happened in the Land of Israel over a period of 2,500 years and God told us that it would happen.  The Jews / Israelis are Edomite-Canaanites who stole the name of Israel, along with the land, after God scattered true Israel into all the world.  God’s enemies now masquerade as His people and that is why Christendom is being destroyed.  They are the ones in the forefront of leading Christendom astray into multiculturalism, interfaith, twisted-genderism; and they are the ones openly bragging about turning our nations into multicultural non-christian states.  They are the ones who have polluted Christians’ minds with false theology to cause them to violate all that God commanded.

The word “Jews” is only mentioned 36 times in the Old Testament, outside the Book of Esther (40 times in the Book of Esther); and the word “Jew” is only mentioned 2 times in the Old Testament outside the Book of Esther (8 times in the Book of Esther).  That is quite significant since the majority of all Bible “teachers” use the word as commonly as people put salt on their food!  By comparison, the word “Israel-” in all forms is used 2,319 times in the entire Bible; and all forms of the word “Judah / Judea”, etc. are used 800 times in the entire Bible.  The word “Jew / Jews” is used 190 times in the New Testament.  In all these instances, in the Old Testament the word should have been translated Judahite(s) and in all the instances in the New Testament it should be rendered Judean(s).

The issue is not the word as much as it is the ignorance of our people in regard to history, race, theology, and even language—including their own.*  That ignorance came about because God sent blindness upon His people and the whole world, in order to accomplish His Will, hiding the truth from all but those of His elect, who desire the Truth as the Pearl of Great Price and when they find it they gladly sell all to obtain it and never part with it.

[* Before the captivity of the Southern Confederation of the House of Judah (c.586 b.c.), the term “Judah-ite” (mistranslated “Jew”) meant only a person who was a legitimate member of the House of Judah or the Tribe of Judah; that is, someone legitimately descended from Judah, pure in his generations—who where the only people whom God said were allowed to be citizens (members of the congregation or society of Israel).  However, after the captivity, the word Hebrew Judah-ite and Greek Judean (or the corruption of those words which entered English c.1775 as “Jew”) could mean, “anyone living in the land of Judea regardless of race”.  The word then took on a geopolitical meaning—not purely racial, as it was originally and as it was supposed to be.  So have the words “American”, “Canadian”, “British”, and even “German”, “Swede”, etc. abominably become meaningless words, entirely castrated from their true history and meaning.  Such words are of paramount importance since God commanded us to marry, fellowship, and interact solely with our own people—and He forbade us to marry, fellowship, and interact with aliens.  It’s God’s Universe.  It’s His Family.  Anyone who attempts to Judge God through the polluted notions of the modern sinful world and Apostate Church function as God’s enemies (and help to destroy God’s children and Christendom, whether they realize it or not).  The God of the New Testament is the very same God of the Old Testament and His does not change; nor does He change what He commanded (His Standard of Morality).  What He declared to be sin and abominations 4,500 years ago still are today, regardless of how fond of and attached to that sin that any “Christian” may be.  Sin bears consequences: painful, long-lasting, even permanent consequences.  The only option is to obey God—not attempt to “re-invent” Him or re-interpret the Bible according to modern, sinful notions.

Well, in an ordinary conversation, or in any news report or anything written how could a person know, whenever the word “American” is used, exactly what type of person is being referred to? —you could not by the word alone.  Therefore, you have to study the context of everything else that was said to make that determination.  

{The word of God is not an irrational story, or an open-ended script like when at a storyteller convention, a story teller begins the story and then calls on you to finish it however it feels good to you.}

Even as with the word American (or British, etc.), now in the Era of the Fall of Christendom (as I titled one of my books 6 years ago, The Post-Christian Era and the New Dark Ages), so it is with the word Jew in Scripture (which should be properly rendered Judah-ite or Judean).  So it is also with every Hebrew or Greek word used for “stranger” or “alien”.  So it is with the words terribly mistranslated as “Gentile”—the Hebrew goy (plural, goyim) and Greek ethnos (plural, ethney), which simply mean, “nation, people”—and can refer to anyone.  

So it is with simple pronouns that people use in speech and hear and read every day.  To whom does the word “he” or “she” refer?  You can only determine that by context.  What governs the true understanding of context in any Scripture verse? —the simple Rules of Bible Interpretation:

  1. God is Immutable.  He does not change.  
  2. He cannot lie, change His Mind, forget, have a better idea, be confused, violate His Promise or Covenant, or contradict Himself.  
  3. What God says first sets the Standard by which all that follows is to be interpreted.  
  4. Therefore, if there appears to be a contradiction, there is not, the reader is confused.  

Playing the children’s game, “Simon Sez” might help Christians build their mental reflexes to stop and scrutinize what they hear and not so easily be fooled.  What God says does not change.  Morality does not change.  God’s Law does not change.  God’s Plan for His people does not change.  God’s Plan for those who are not His people does not change.  What God declared in His Word was established—before the foundation of the world, before God ever said, “Let there be” it was all planned the way that God wanted it forever; and the New Testament does not change it.  The New Testament is in perfect harmony with the Old Testament—and that is a “check and balance” that God wrote into His Word.  If some New Testament teaching contradicts the only that is a clear sign that the interpretation is spurious!  God is not the one confused or untrue!  Those who think that the New Testament cancels out the Old and changes God’s Plan are confused and violate the text; rather than rightly divide it (and thus, they shall be ashamed).  

Here is a perfect example of three passages in the Old Testament that may seem to be disharmonious:

“One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.” (Exodus 12:49; also expressed in Numbers 15:16)

“Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth among you eat blood.” (Leviticus 17:12)

“Ye shall not eat of any thing that dieth of itself: thou shalt give it unto the stranger that is in thy gates, that he may eat it; or thou mayest sell it unto an alien: for thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God.” (Deuteronomy 14:21)

Those who don’t understand the Bible and the Biblical Rules of Interpretation are the only ones who will be confused.  They violate the Word of God by throwing out the rest of the Bible as if each new verse they read invalidates all previous Scripture.  Shamefully, there are even many who are utterly reprobate, and who read the Bible looking for contradictions—and thus, they find them; but the contradictions are the ignorant delusion of their own fallen minds.  No honorable child of God reads the Scriptures looking for contradictions—for he will look for harmony!  Whatsoever is not of faith is sin.  God cannot honor faithlessness or doubt.  Fools focus on problems; wise men focus on solutions.

What is the resolution of the above passages? —again, the pivotal anchoring Truth of God’s Nature:

“For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.” (Malachi 3:6)

“…the Father of lights, with Whom is no variableness, neither shadow [shade] of turning.” (James 1:17)

“Christ Jesus the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” (Hebrews 13:8)

So then the resolution is to read other passages of Scripture in which God established dealings with “strangers” and how God commanded His people to live.  In brief summary, God forever forbade us to seek the peace or prosperity of aliens and peoples whom He cursed.  He commanded us to be separate from them: “I am the LORD your God, which have separated you from other people…. [even as I separated clean animals from unclean] And ye shall be holy unto Me: for I the LORD am Holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be Mine.”  God commanded, “Come out from among them and be ye separate and touch not the unclean thing [people*] and ye shall [continue to] be My sons and daughters [indeed]”.  God forbade marrying aliens and after God’s people fell into sin God commanded all alien wives and all children by them to be sent away forever; even after the return of the captives from Babylon.  The New Testament did not change God’s Law.  Morality never changes.  The meaning of “be ye not unequally yoked” has been stripped and neutered of much of its meaning by modernist one-world interpretation.  This command against being unequally yoked with infidels is in the very same chapter and part of this passage in II Corinthians 6.  

* The topic in II Corinthians 6 and in the passage in Isaiah 52 from which it is drawn, albeit, reworded, is “people” not nebulous, “things”.  Similarly, God says that if His people will indeed separate themselves from other people as He commanded them, they will [continue to] be, not His “things”, but His sons and daughters; thus, they will not be disowned, cut off, or destroyed for their having polluted themselves with the world (Numbers 25; Jeremiah 3:9; I Corinthians 3:17 refers to any defilement / pollution that God forbade: race-mixing, gender-perversion, eating unclean animals, paganism, etc.).  See also my booklet, The Creation of Man in Genesis 1 and 2.

The Hebrew word neighbor (rey-ah) in the Old Testament more literally means, “fellow sheep” and the Greek word brethren (adelphos) in the New Testament means, “from the same womb”.  God commanded separation.  Our only brethren, are only neighbors are our kinsman.  Concerning even our kinsmen God commanded, of those who are evil who reject Christ, “shouldest thou help the ungodly and do good unto them that hate the Lord, therefore is there Wrath upon you from before the Lord” and to not even bid them God Speed (any verbal well wish, not even “have a nice day” or “take care” or “travel safely”) or we are partakers in their evil! and that we are to shake the dust off our very feet in testimony against them; and those in unrepentant sin we are to excommunicate.  

Since that is how God commanded us to treat our very kinsmen who are in sin or who reject Christ, we are not to treat aliens any better because God commanded us to be separate from them because we are not the same and He forbade us to ever seek their peace or prosperity.  God separated His people from all other peoples even as He separated clean animals from unclean animals—in the very act of creating them separate.  Sheep and pigs and dogs did not descend from a common ancestor.  God said that He would scatter His people throughout the earth but that He would regather whom He scattered.  That is what the Great Commission is about.  God keeping His Promise.  Those who erase the boundaries that God established to invent universal or global inclusion violate the Word of God and God declared a curse on those who would add to or detract from His Commands or His Prophecy.  Hebrews 8:8ff echoes Jeremiah 31:31ff.  God does not change.  His people don’t change.  His Plan doesn’t change.  His Moral Standard does not change.

So, the simple resolution to the three passages is, since God commanded us to be separate and that there is to be one law for Israelites and one law for KINSMEN-strangers (Israelites born in other lands or cousin nations—lateral branches of the same family), then the “stranger” among us that is to not eat blood is our kinsman-stranger; and the one to whom we may give or sell an animal that dies of itself or is torn or strangled or dies in an accident, that is an alien-stranger (non-kinsmen).  

There may seem to be an inconsistency / contradiction in that why would there be some strangers living within the gates of the Israelites that were aliens.  However, that is not a contradiction, for several reasons. 

  1. The Israelites did not succeed in utterly driving the Canaanites out of the Promised Land completely. 
  2. The time that this Law was given the Israelites were wandering in the wilderness and there were alien peoples around them. 
  3. God at times told the Israelites that they could take certain peoples captives in war as their slaves.  

Another thing that the wicked world and “Christians” with corrupt minds judge God and claim that He was evil, but that He “changed”—but the New Testament does not condemn slavery.  Paul did not tell Philemon to free his slaves, but to receive his runaway slave Onesimus back and to treat him humanely.  God Himself calls us His slaves; Paul called himself God’s slave / bond-servant.  “The earth is the Lord’s and the Fulness thereof, the world and all they that dwell therein.”  “All the souls are Mine.”  God owns all and has all Right and He Alone decides the destiny of each creature according to His Own Good Pleasure.  Those who don’t like it have “God-envy” and are humanists who hate God for being God.

Those peoples against whom they went to battle who were kinsmen nations that had not corrupted themselves the Israelite men were allowed even to take as their wives, captive women if they were virgins; but that also was a “time specific” matter, for once those peoples began to intermarry with corrupt and cursed peoples, God not longer allowed it.  This was the case with the Midianites (Moses married a daughter of the Midianite priest / prince).  Purely descended from Abraham, Midianite women could be married earlier in Israel’s history; but the Midianites then joined in alliance with the Moabites (Moab and his brother Benammi were cursed for being inbred, but then they were doubly cursed because they married Canaanite women) and after that point in time, when the Midianites began mixing with the Moabites, God forbade Israel to take them wives of the Midianites.  

God declared,

“Ye shall keep My Statutes.  Thou shalt not let thy cattle [clean ruminant livestock, large and small, ie. cows, sheep, etc.] gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee.” (Leviticus 19:19)

Are we God’s people worth less than cows and cowpeas?  God commanded us to be separate because He made His people separate.  The Hebrew word Adam means, “to blush, flush, show blood in the face, to turn rosy, be ruddy” and the Hebrews and Israelites are described as ruddy and fair.  To claim that all races came from Adam violates God’s Primary Law of “Kind After Kind” (mentioned 10 times in the first chapter of Genesis, the number 10 in Scripture representing Divine Perfect Order).  Neither did all races from from Noah’s sons and God did not turn Ham black!  Ham was not cursed, Canaan was because he was born of incest (Ham violated his own mother), but the rest of Ham’s offspring were not cursed (or turned black).  

[See my, What Was the Mark that God Placed on Cain…?]

God here even forbids wearing any garment of mixed fabric (another passage declares any diverse fabric, though this passage specifically mentions only wool and linen) and God forbade boiling a kid / calf in its own mother’s milk, and forbade us to yoke an ass with an ox—because such things violate moral laws and boundaries that God established.  There are powerful lessons in these commands.  Separation / segregation; not amalgamation / integration.  Difference is to remain different and not blend together (that is Babylon, “confusion by mixing”).  Most “Christians” have been deceived into thinking that God abolished His Law—but He did not; and because God’s people are in sin (ignorant or willful) He does not hear our prayers and that is why we are being destroyed.  Keeping God’s Law does not earn salvation.  Salvation is 100% by God’s Grace.  Keeping God’s Law is how He commanded us to live, and those of His people who do not obey are not of the elect, but are the chaff of the wheat, and goats not sheep.

See my books, What’s Keeping God from Delivering America, Britain, and Europe from Destruction?, Ten Commandments For Youth (that is, for “young minded” Christians with the “faith of a child” who want to obey God; the Ten Commandments are not merely 10 individual laws, but 10 categories of law under which the entire Law of God is organized); and my detailed, annotated editions of Races in Chaos and Kind Unto Kind.  Also, my Apologetic Expositions series and my Sacred Truth Expository Commentary series explain nearly every passage of Scripture that undiscerning readers think are “contradictions” in God violating His Covenants, Promises, and His Own Law—the misunderstanding of which has seduced God’s people into amalgamating with the heathen (self-genocide) which has destroyed Christendom.]
