The below article is the work of M. Glenn Baxter. Please visit his site and support his work as his primary concern is for God's children making it to eternal life. He is one of the most knowledgeable people I know regarding our true history. readers will learn that Jews are not in fact the chosen people as they are not Israelites. Jews of course will claim this is "anti semetism", because truth is not in their nature.
Who Was The First Jew?
We know that Saul was the first king of Israel and that John was the first man called Baptist but who was the first jew? Neither Adam, Seth or Noah are called jew. Nor were Abraham Isaac or Jacob. Moses was not called a jew and neither were Saul, David or Solomon called jew. In fact you cannot find the word jew in the first eleven books of the Bible.
But wasn't Moses a Jew? The Bible doesn’t say so. You were sure it did. "The Book of Revelation-the 144,000?" They are all of tribes of Israel but the Bible does not call any of them Jews. It is today's Christian church who call the Israeli from that little country in the middle east Jews. You find the word ‘Jew’ appears for the first time in 2 Kings 16:6, where the Southern Kingdom are fighting the Israelites in the North.
II Kings 16:6 "At that time Resin king of Syria recovered Elath to Syria, and drave the Jews from Elath: and the Syrians came to Elath, and dwelt there unto this day."
"Jews" is stated here should have been translated "house of Judah", for the term "Jews" came out of the Babylonian captivity many years after this. Even though Ahaz and the house of Judah remained a nation, they did lose the city of Elath to the Syrians, and never recoved the land again. It is God that held the small nation of Judah together, even when their king was doing those wicked thing, all for the sake of His promise to David.
By Christ’s time the inhabitants of Judea —the Jews— were a mixed lot, most of whom Christ rejected. Yes, Christ's ancestry was of the tribe of Judah but, in those days no pure pedigree Israelites were called Jews, even if from the
tribe of Judah. Only foreigners who also lived in Judea were called Jews.
Isn't it interesting that we can read over five hundred pages of the bible before we find a jew anywhere yet those who call themselves jew today claim the first five books of the bible and call it there Torah.
Do you not find it very strange that those who claim to have written the first five books of the Bible and call themselves jew, can't find the word jew written in the book anywhere they call there own bible and claim to have written ?
Jesus Christ tells John in Revelation 2:9 "I know the blasphemy of them which say they are jews and are not but are the SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN". We know that God changed the name of Abram to Abraham Gen. 17:5 and that God changed the name of Jacob to Israel Gen. 32:28 but no where in the Bible do we find where God changed the name of his chosen people Israel to jew! Therefore there is no authority by which those who say they are jews can claim to be Israel!
What did happen to the ancient Israelites ("The House of Israel") & much of ("The House of Judah")
Remember, the Jewish religious leaders, of that day when Jesus walked this earth and was crucified, were not descended from Judah or Benjamin (the former "House of Judah"). They were non Israelites descended from Cain, i.e. Kenites who had infiltrated the church back during its Babylonian captivity five centuries earlier. This is also the case today in that little country in the middle east we now call Israel.
The House of Judah was taken to Babylon during the conquering of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzor in 586BC, 135 years after the House of Israel plus tens of thousands of Israelites were captured by their Assyrian conquerors in 745-721 B.C. and taken captive and relocated below the Black and Caspian Seas. They were used by their Assyrian conquerors as a buffer state to ward off any advances by the Medes. Later, following the collapse of Assyria, they migrating into western Europe and some of them on to the Americas. A word of caution: Don't confuse the two events, They are different, they happened 135 years apart, to two different nations, although both were nations made up of ancient Israelites.
The former "House of Israel" has today formed the nucleus of our Christian nations located in Europe and the Americas. While the former "House of Judah" after being heavily infiltrated by Kenites, way back in 586 B.C. have since been further infiltrated in 740AD when the Khazar ruler - and probably the greater part of the ruling classes - were converted to Judaism.
In spite of the powerful propaganda effort of the so-called "Jews", they have been unable to prove in all the recorded history that there is a record, prior to that period, of a race religion or nationality, referred to as "Jew". The religious sect in Judea, in the time of Jesus, to which self-styled "Jews" today refer to as "Jews", were known as "Pharisees". "Judaism" today and "Pharisaism" in the time of Jesus are the same.
Jesus abhorred and denounced "Pharisaism"; hence the words, "Woe unto you Scribes and Pharisees, Hypocrites, Ye Serpents, Ye Generation of Vipers".
So take heed and understand the warning Christ has for the bad figs, who are the kenites, the sons of Cain, and even to those teachers who are filled with their "leaven of hypocrisy" (Luke 12:1).
John 8:44 "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do".
Matthew 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
Jesus is talking directly to the kenites (vs. 25), the offspring (generation) of Kayin (Cain) who was the offspring of the viper (serpent) in the garden, who was and is the "tree of the knowledge of good and evil" which bears bad fruit. How can one preach good things that bear good fruit for the harvest if one has an evil heart? He can't for his words are full of poisonous venom.
generation = gennema, ghen'-nay-mah, Greek 1081; from Greek 1080 (gennao); offspring; by analogy produce (literal or figurative) :- fruit, generation.
Matt 12:35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
This is what the parable of good trees and corrupt trees is all about. Remember from Matt 12:25 that Jesus "knew their thoughts", i.e. what was in their hearts!
