The Age Of Shem: The Conclusion

I will bring you into the wilderness of the peoples and there I will plead
my case with you face to face. Ezekiel 37:35
         On June 17, 2015 Dylan Roof a young white male of 21years of age executed 9 members of the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.  His victims were six black women and three black men including a state senator and pastor Clementa Pinckney.   He was amazingly or not so amazing captured on June 18, 2015.   The media later reported his affiliation with White supremacy ideology and in one article Roof as justification for his perfidy after being welcomed and treated kindly by the parishioners allegedly said, “I have to do it. You rape our women and you’re taking over our country and you have to go.”  It is intriguing that Roof picked a small group of Black American church members in which to make a statement.  Anyone who has not been living under a rock in the Andaman Islands would know that Black Americans are hardly taking over anyone’s country; however, Hispanics maybe Black Americans nope and given that he killed six women some of them elderly he or she would know that they are not raping other women. 
            Also given that we are in a war with Islamic terrorist and they are the ones who our government proclaims was responsible for 911, it would have been more logical for him to attack the nation of Islam or some other mosque with mostly Black American adherents.  But the message that the anti-christ spirit which operated in tandem with Dylan wanted to send was not a natural one but a spiritual one.  Black Americans are definitely not taking over this country as it is not their country to take over.  But what some Black Americans who are of Israel and born of the spirit of God can do is fulfill the time of the gentiles which is the time of the sons of Japheth. 
I have mentioned this in several articles but I have not given the answer to the question of what fulfills the times of the gentiles? It is a simple yet complex answer but I will not give it here for two reasons: (1) It is not something to be cavalier about.  The spiritual implications of igniting the war which removes the principalities and powers of the air are momentous.  In my mind there needs to be a people spiritually ready for such an event. (2) I do not have an audience nor have the Israel of God been revealed yet in it’s entirety although, it does seem as if Lord is unveiling the eyes of some people.  So, for now I will watch and wait.
            I have written about fulfilling the times of gentiles and concluding the age.  I understand it is not a way of thinking of most church people or Christians so they may be a little lost when I use these terms.  I wrote about this in a little thesis titled The Principle Of The Second (The Age To Come).  It can be found on Amazon.  But the gist of it is that this age is the natural age of  the governance of man and the concomitant governance of fallen principalities and powers. It begin with the sons of Ham and concludes with the sons of Japheth. Both of these brothers have been instrumental in the lives of their brother Shem particularly those of the line of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  However, in the Principle Of The Second I use Esau to represent the nations or this natural age.  The line of Shem is called to be the priesthood and representatives of God.  When the age of Japheth concludes, it time for the age of Shem to begin. 
           The age of Shem is a spiritual age characterized by the reign of the Lord Jesus in the heavens with those deemed worthy to rule in the first resurrection and this should be some members of the gentile body of Christ and even those of Israel.  How the Lord determines this I do not know, but certainly Revelation gives some indication of who will be counted worthy.   The age of Shem is also characterized by a natural and restored Israel to the land of Israel where they will be the leading nation and showing other nations how to live and worship God in that age.  I give the rationale for this age and the last age in the Principle and will not reiterate it here, but suffice it to say that it is the reason Black Americans are targeted sometimes subtly and overtly for extinction.
 Our lot here is more difficult than other people groups and we suffer from not just outside devises and schemes of the enemy but inside as well.  I do not mean to suggest that in the general population everyone is steaming with hatred for Black Americans.  Some people surely do and the people of the mindset of internet sites such as Stormfront will probably throw themselves in the sea when their day ends.  I have met and know good people of all races and I have learned many good spiritual lessons from white pastors and teachers.  But even if America was without a wrinkle in terms of its relationship with  Black Americans, it still would not nullify the need to conclude this age and progress on in God’s divine plan for history. 
            Needless to say there are factions in the world who do not want to see the age of Japheth close.  It is the reason history has been so distorted with the erasure of black/brown people at the foundation of civilizations particularly the black sons of Ham and Black Japheth whose identity had been lost in a historical fog.  I am reminded of the epic and best in my opinion Wimbledon tennis final between Rodger Federer and Raphael Nadal in 2008 when Raphael was trying to win his first Wimbledon. I was on pins and needles as the match changed momentum from Rodger to Raphael and I could feel how badly Rodger who had won the event several times consecutively did not want to give up the crown.  Raphael had to dig deep and have great determination to take that title all the way into the shadows of the evening.  When Raphael finally won he collapsed to the grass in tired elation.  It is the same with this age.  The heavenly rulers nor the current earthly rulers in the sons of Japheth want to lose their crown so they are holding on to it like a gorilla with a banana.
            When I came to the conclusion that Black Americans or at least some were the Israel of the Ultimate Dispersal, I did not do any cartwheels or felt like I needed to get a soapbox and thump my chest about the sins of White people against us.  In all of Israel’s history, there was nothing that happened to them that God did not allow or state would happen due their sins committed against him.  What I really felt was Oh man, of all people Black Americans. These people are all over the place. Some are clearly gone and adhere to the spirit of Babylon and that’s okay.  Just choose this day who you will serve and not be lukewarm.  Many are regular church people who have never given any thought to prophetic issues and only know Jesus is suppose to return someday.  If only they knew how close to them that day is and how they are ideally situated to make it happen.  Then I thought we are the same people of fame and notoriety described in Jeremiah and Ezekiel and doing the same things they did to get expelled from the land.  Those were some difficult people. We’ll never get out of this age if we’re talking about Black Americans.  Just being honest.  On many occasions I thought the Father surely has reserved seven thousand at least who have not bowed the knee to Baal.
           Can these bones truly live?  Despite my initial lack of optimism, these bones can indeed live.  So, to all my sisters particularly Black women who feel you have been looked over, walked upon, taken advantage of by Black men and the world at large lift up your heads because you are loved of the Father as it is you whom he chose to enter the world and do for us what we could not do for ourselves.  To my Black brothers, the creation awaits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. (Romans:8,9).   It is not the type of sons exemplified in the heavens that the creation awaits, but ones in the manner of Jesus the Son exemplar.  Therefore, lift up your heads as it is such sons who can lift the foot of your enemies from your neck and be all you were meant to be. 
To the nations all over the world of dark skin and hue who have felt the sting of having a natural sunscreen in the age of Japheth, lift up your heads as the day is coming that when Israel is restored you will be as well.  To my white brothers and sisters who care about truth and worshipping and seeking the Lord with all your heart know that he is no respecter of persons and is just and true in his judgments and you in no way are left out of his presence because at the end of the day there is no law against love, kindness patience, gentleness, helping the poor and such things.
            To the dry bones in the valley “Hear the word of the Lord! Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you and you shall live.  To the breath “Come from the four winds, O breath and breathe on these slain, that they may live.” 
            I have for the time being concluded my writings on this blog.  It has been quite a task and not without it’s spiritual reprisals. I have forgotten more things than I can remember to write and to do so would make this blog much longer than it already is.  I have endeavored to lay out a theme and support it with accurate analysis.  These are interesting days to be a believer in Lord Jesus.  Just as Jesus had a forerunner in John, Satan has a forerunner and it is revealing itself day by day in our society. Thus to the saints my parting word is don’t let human sentiment change the truth you know.  In all of society’s changes strive to always be a royal priesthood and holy nation for it is only Satan the god of this world and wisdom who is the god of “tolerance.”  Below is a video and song by Donny Hathaway.  I thought it would serve as a nice musical conclusion for all of us who yearn to be free of this age.

Donny Hathaway - Someday We'll All Be Free

I want to share this beautiful song by Donny Hathaway as I conclude this blog for now.  It is a great message for Black Americans and know that if you really want to be free, it is nearer than you think. Not by might or power but by the spoken word.  This is gold all the way.

Prophetic Excellence In Exile

Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:17

           Over the course of this blog I have examined prophetic issues as it relates to the history of mankind and how it is determined from the divine perspective of God.  I have maintained that Israel is the fulcrum upon which history turns and identifying the correct Israel of Jesus’ speaking on that fateful day that he spoke over Jerusalem is paramount.   I have shown in previous articles that it is impossible that the Jews we know of today specifically the white Askenazim Jews are the Jews of Jesus’ audience when the desolation of Jerusalem’s house was foretold by him.  This is for two reasons: (1) The Askenazim Jews are the sons of Japheth Noah’s oldest son and additionally identified as being of the gentiles.  This is how he is differentiated from the sons of Ham. 
           Also, we are in the age of Japheth the last age of the fleshly governance of man in which Jesus designated as the times of the gentiles. The previous age was the black sons of Ham.  (2) Jesus foretold in keeping with the previous history of Israel that they would be taken captive by the nations or in exile again which occurred approximately around 70 a.d. White Jews have never been taken captive by the nations this side of Jesus’ resurrection and furthermore, Noah prophesied that Japheth would dwell in the tent of Shem.  A tent is akin to someone’s house and identity and can only be taken over if the original owner is no longer there.  The Roman siege of Jerusalem would serve to fulfill Noah’s prophesy.  
            Moreover, Jesus said that Judah would be gone in captivity until the times of the gentiles are fulfilled.  Therefore, since we are still in the time of the white sons of Japheth Judah is still gone in captivity from the land and the times of the gentiles which did not end when Israel became a nation again under white Japheth lets us know they were not the people of Jesus’ speaking.   One may ask why does it matter that the correct descendants of the 70 a.d. Jerusalem be identified?  Isn’t anyone practicing Judaism or some form of the Torah sufficient for the task of being Israel?  I would suggest that one read my article Prophetic Particularity.
            After much reading , reflection, research and inquiry of the Lord, I concluded that Black Americans aka African-Americans, Negroes or better from my standpoint People X  are the pertinent Israel of the Ultimate Dispersal because whenever God sent Israel into captivity it was always in the dominant empire of the day which America (symbolically the Egypt and Babylon) of her day would qualify.  My coming to the people of Judah conclusion about Black Americans was not one that filled me with any particular joy but with a sense of bleakness.  When I look over the landscape of Black America I see a people scattered in many directions with Jesus’ words weighing heavily upon us.  There is nothing more desolate than being stripped of your identity because you have nothing in which you are united.  There is nothing so to speak that draws you around the camp fire together. 
          It will take nothing short of a reverse Damascus road experience for the scales of a lost identity to drop from the eyes of the Israel who is really Israel among Black Americans.  Yet, it is evident that God is doing that among some people and I don’t mean the Black Hebrews who are shown on video being combative with people.  In the course of last year and this year there have been riots in Ferguson, Baltimore and New York over the police killing of Black males.  There have been reports of such happenings with Black females.  When that is not happening, you have killings of Black males and females at the hands of their fellow Black citizen.  Whether the police killings are legitimate is often divided along racial lines.  When it is other Black on Black crime we seem to have no words as to why we contribute so heavily to our own cutting down.  Either way that amongst many things contributes to a desolate house among the Black collective.
            Whether or not a Black American who happens upon this page agrees with me or not about being the Israel of Ultimate Dispersal, one fact that is incontrovertible is that we are a people in exile, but even in the midst of that we can be excellent in exile.  I give by way of example four young men of the royalty and nobility of the house of Judah who if there was anyone I would want to meet after Jesus in the hereafter it would be them especially Daniel. I cannot say enough how much deep respect and admiration I have for Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah.  Their names were changed in their captivity by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar to Belteshazzar, Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego.
 Although Nebuchadnezzar changed their names, he could not change their identity.  Daniel and his fellow Judeans decided early on they would not be consumed by the culture of Babylon and begin their spiritual resistance by refusing to defile themselves with the king’s food. (Daniel 1:8).  Because of their stance God gave them knowledge and skill in all literature and wisdom and to Daniel the understanding in all visions and dreams. (id. 17)  When the king interviewed them he found none like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah. (id.19).
            Perhaps like many a bible acolytes, my favorite accounts of the Hebrew boys are when Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold which he wanted everyone to worship and Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego with gumption and conviction told the king they would not worship it and of Daniel being thrown into the lion’s den for refusing not to worship God under a devious decree instituted by his enemies.   In the case of the image of gold Nebuchadnezzar was so angry with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego that he ordered the fiery furnace which he was to throw them in to be seven times hotter as he surely replayed their words of defiance If that is the case our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace and He will deliver us from your hand, O king.  But if not, let it be known to you O king, that we do not serve your gods nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up  (Daniel 3:17) in his head. 

            What Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah did was basically give the spiritual middle finger to Nebuchadnezzar.  They were the real NWA (Negroes With Attitude) and I am convinced that as God observed their confidence in His ability to deliver them His ears perked up.  However, it was the "But if not" I am inclined to believe that propelled him to leave His throne and show up in that fiery furnace with them.
            Daniel exhibited the same gumption when He was thrown in the lion’s den and God rescued him.  Throughout his time in Babylon Daniel exemplified a spirit of excellence in whatever he did so that his enemies could find no error or corruption in him.  He may have been a captive in Babylon but Babylon was not a captive in him.  My word to Black Americans is be prophetically excellent in exile particularly those who are born of the spirit of God as your forefathers were.  In a culture which presents many images of gold for us to worship before such as doing whatever makes you happy if it means engaging in all sorts of fornications, abortions (child sacrifice), homosexuality, transgender, fatherless homes, misguided feminism, worship of money and material things, selfish ambition, crude language and thoughts, rudeness and general unkindness let us resolve not to worship before those images. 
              In reference to a sermon given long ago about Stephen the martyr by my pastor, be so determined in your commitment to God that He literally stands up from His throne when He sees you defying the cry to worship the images of gold set up by the culture of Babylon.  When you exhibit that type of excellence of devotion and commitment to him, you can bypass a lot of the devious schemes of your enemies, but if you are doing what is violative of his law and of men do not expect to escape the sword.
