AS highlighted in earlier series, Yahshua (Christ) was a black man.
His first followers commonly described as his disciples were also black.
These are the people who continued his mission after the crucifixion. Throughout his life, Yahshua’s main concern was finding ‘the lost sheep of Israel’ – a reference to the black people of Judea who had been scattered around the earth by the Romans.
Following Yahshua’s death, it was his fellow Israelites who believed in his ministry who came to be known as Christians.
These Christians were persecuted by the Romans and Pharisees and often faced the same fate as their mentor Yahshua.
Some were killed.
Christianity was characterised by humility and rebellion against the Roman Empire.
It was unlike the Christianity of today which is adorned with riches and decorative gowns, jewellery and massive churches.
It was the common man’s religion and most Christians were black people of peasant background who would meet on hills and in the valleys to hold their sermons.
Initially, the followers of Christ would preach in the synagogues, but they were eventually outlawed and punished.
Anyone who was found preaching the same message Yahshua was killed for was punished.
One such victim was James, a brother of Yahshua.
Peter, the disciple of Yahshua, became the leader of the followers of Christ in Jerusalem until he too was killed by the Romans.
After Peter, James, who was a close kinsman of Yahshua, became very popular among the Christians in a very short space of time.
He somewhat succeeded Peter, but his life was short-lived for he was stoned to death in Jerusalem by the corrupt Judeans who feared and were against the ministry of Christ.
Most of the black Judeans had witnessed the painful death of Yahshua and his followers under Roman and Pharisee rule.
As such they sought to dissociate themselves from the Christians and some even joined ranks with the Romans against the Christians.
Saul, who would eventually be known as Paul, was one such black Judean who was a son of a black Pharisee and was recruited by the Romans to hunt down and imprison the followers of Christ.
Paul eventually repented from his ways after being temporarily blinded and receiving a sign from heaven, telling him not to persecute his own people for following their Lord.
Paul was born in Rome, and had Roman citizenship.
He was well educated and had travelled to lands as far as Damascus, Rome, Egypt and Asia.
In many of these lands, Paul was often mistaken for an Egyptian, but he would often remind people that he was a Hebrew.
This alone confirms that the Israelites were as black as the Egyptians were.
The Romans recruited influential black Judeans such as Paul to oversee fellow black Judeans, including the Christians.
When Paul turned against the Romans and became what he called a bond servant of Christ, he proclaimed to the black Judeans that he would personally see to it that the word of Christ, and of Moses and the prophets of Israel, would be given to the gentiles, because the black Judeans had lost their way in joining themselves with the heathen and had a hand in rejecting and killing their Saviour.
Paul also spoke saying that one could only be judged according to the law he abides with, and thus the gentiles of Judea, i.e. the Romans and Canaanites (whites), as heathens and barbarians, had first to receive the law of God so that on the awaited Day of Judgment, the Israelites and gentiles alike, would all be liable to the same judgment, according to their own deeds.
Many black Judeans were against Paul because of his stance and Paul ended up spending most of his ministry in places like Rome.
His preaching to the gentiles was different from what he taught the Israelites. Paul never stressed covenants such as the dietary laws and circumcision, which were between Yahweh and the likes of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to the gentiles, and this was because these covenants were to do with the lineage of Israel and his descendants and thus would not necessarily apply to the gentiles.
A gentile is a non-Israelite and it was not hard for Paul to succeed in his mission because he had grown up among the Romans and understood their mindset well. Paul spoke the Roman language and many other languages apart from Hebrew and Aramaic.
This is what the Bible means when it refers to people speaking in tongues, and not the gibberish that the modern Christians rumble when they claim to have received the Holy Spirit in church.
Most of the New Testament books after the four gospels and Acts are casual letters of the likes of Paul when they were trying to establish their churches among the gentiles.
For this reason we even have a book titled Romans in the New Testament.
Paul never imagined that the whites, the descendants of the gentiles he was preaching to, would eventually forgo the law of Moses and the early prophets, in favour of the so-called ‘New Testament’, which was mostly, but a collection of Paul’s casual letters concerning the gentiles of those lands.
In Africa, we even witnessed the attempts of the protestant Christian churches to sell us a little blue pocket ‘New Testament’, completely disregarding the history and founding laws of the Israelites which are contained in what they now call the ‘Old Testament’.
The ‘Old Testament’ comprises of the books that Yahshua himself read and yet many still base their claim of being Christians on the ‘New Testament’ and some make use of that little blue pocket Bible to this day.
The fabrication of Christianity begins with the separation of the scrolls of Israel into an Old and a New Testament.
This wrongly suggests that the testament or covenant between God and Israel changed and the old one differs from the new one.
Yahshua’s purity was measured in accordance to his complete adherence to the Law of Moses and by his own words he said, “I have not come to change the Law of Moses.”
The scrolls of Israel contained the history, genealogy, laws, festival dates and requirements and also prophecies of the house of Israel. In this respect, the old cannot be separated from the new, because they complement each other, and each generation’s recordings by the true scribes of Israel, culminates into the large books we read today as Bibles.
The word Bible is Latin and was derived from ‘papayas’, the leaves which were used as writing material by the Israelites.
Although Paul succeeded in the areas he grew up, he was not allowed by God to minister in Asia.
He tried several times and whenever he boarded the ships to Asia, God would send on them strong winds and rain that would send him back from his journey. It is believed the reason this happened was because Asians and Africans had already begun following the laws of Israel in the days of Menyelek, the first son of Solomon.
From Menyelek’s time, most lands in Africa and Asia had converted by law to the ways of the Israelites.
Thus Africans and Asians had already acquired the Law of God, at least through their ancestors, and so Paul was not required in such places.
Yahshua himself confirms that the story of Solomon, Makeda and Menyelek is true when he prophesies saying; “The Queen of the South shall rise against this generation in Judgment, because she repented to the preaching of Solomon.” This clearly shows that Yahshua knew there was a remnant of Solomon established in Africa and Yahshua probably read the Kebra Nagast.
The written language of the ancient Africans of Asia was sculpturing and stone carving.
When the sons of Menyelek reached these lands of their ancestors in Asia around 900 BCE, they retold and wrote the history and prophecies of Israel in the ancient written language of their ancestors, i.e. sculpturing and stone carving.
For instance, in Paul’s time, there existed a temple in Cambodia, which was built around 600 BCE by black people called Nagas, who were sages, kings and descendants of Solomon.
The temple was called Angkor Wat and it is a book of stone; a sermon telling about the Saviour’s coming and depicting him as a black man.
Seeing drawings in stone, on walls and high towers, a Judean like Paul, who had witnessed the paganism of the Hellenists firsthand, would most likely have wrongly perceived some of these stone monuments and carvings to be idols, and yet they were monuments erected to confirm the identity of the coming Saviour. For this reason, Paul was sent to the Romans, the gentiles he understood well. Paul was eventually beheaded in Rome during the reign of Emperor Nero.
