DNA Tests Could Fulfill God’s Promise to Abraham by Revealing Millions of Jews

DNA Tests Could Fulfill God’s Promise to Abraham by Revealing Millions of Jews. But How Jewish is Jewish Enough?“I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore.” Genesis 22:17 (The Israel Bible™)

Recent advances in DNA testing are the final stage in bringing about a special vision of Messiah, one that will fulfill God’s promise to Abraham while uniting all three major Abrahamic religions, believes a prominent rabbi and former member of Knesset.


Rabbi Chaim Amsalem (Wikipedia)

“This is the special function of the final generation before the Messiah, which we are clearly in right now: to bring close all the descendants of Jews that were lost to the Jewish people,” Rabbi Chaim Amsalem, a prominent Sephardi rabbi, recognized authority on halacha (Torah law), and former Knesset member for Shas.

“We need to bring close those who have their roots in Israel, those souls who stood at Mount Sinai with us, but their souls were lost to us because of the exiles and the catastrophes and tragedies that befell us throughout history.”

Making God One

DNA testing graphically illustrates how mankind is one large interconnected family. Rabbi Amsalem understands this universal reality to have repercussions for the Jewish role in bringing the Redemption.

“Christians believe in Hashem (God), each branch in its own way. Even the Muslims believe in Hashem in their own way. It is the Jews’ purpose to bring about Messiah by uniting the world in the service of Hashem,” Rabbi Amsalem said, quoting a verse in Zechariah.

And Hashem shall be King over all the earth; in that day shall Hashem be One and His name one. Zechariah 14:9

“Not to convert them,” the rabbi noted. “But anyone who discovers that they are descended from Jews, we are required to help them. The non-Jews will remain as they are, but we have to reconnect to those souls that were lost.”

Rabbi Amsalem based this on chapter 34 in Ezekiel.

The weak have ye not strengthened neither have ye healed that which was sick neither have ye bound up that which was broken neither have ye brought back that which was driven away neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force have ye ruled over them and with rigour. Ezekiel 34:4

The Science

The task set out by Rabbi Amsalem, inconceivable just a few short years ago, is at hand. A simple DNA test is performed at home with a cheek swab, which is then mailed to a laboratory. For less than $200, anyone can learn their ancestry going back six generations – including if they have any Jewish genes.


Bennett Greenspan (Family Tree DNA)

Bennett Greenspan, president and CEO of Family Tree DNA, a leading genetic testing company, has watched this phenomenon grow for 15 years. His company performs hundreds of thousands of these tests each year. Greenspan explained to Breaking Israel News how the test determines Jewish ancestry.

“We compare the subject’s DNA with those of verified DNA databases that have been established for specific ethnic groups, “Greenspan explained. “These databases are based on hundreds of thousands of samples and the level of certainty is extremely high. We can tell you what percentage of your ancestors were from different ethnic groups.

“We have a database of DNA for people who are verifiably Ashkenazi Jewish, or verifiably Sephardic Jewish,” Greenspan.

With DNA testing becoming so accessible, the number of people discovering their Jewish roots is growing exponentially. Some tests show that almost 20 percent of people originating from the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal) have a high rate of Jewish ancestry. About one in ten Hispanics from North and South America tested by Family Tree DNA showed Semitic ancestry, strongly suggesting a Jewish background.

Jewish roots are showing up in the most unexpected places. Professor Tudor Parfitt, a British historian who specializes in the study of Jewish communities around the world, found the Kohen modal haplotype, frequently called the Cohen gene, in nine percent of the Lemba tribe in Africa.

Greenspan noted that DNA testing in Europe is revealing the Jewish roots of children hidden during World War II who were previously unaware of their true identities.

Greenspan, as a Jew, understands this as an imperative for the Jewish people in this generation.

“I have seen so many tears in the faces of those who were ripped away from the body of Judaism by hatred, fear, distortion and outright lies,” said Greenspan. “Bringing any of those people, these lost souls, back to Judaism is a mitzvah (Torah commandment) and should be considered an obligation of our generation.”

Rabbi Amsalem noted the urgency of connecting to people with Jewish ancestry. “We will never be at peace in our land until we perform this function, of bringing everyone together to serve Hashem, each in their own right,” Rabbi Amsalem said.

Finding Abraham’s Seed: The Biblical Promise

As the co-author of the book, “Do you have Jewish roots?”, and the founder of Shavei Israel, Michael Freund is intensely interested in genetic testing. He has been searching the far corners of the globe for almost 20 years, trying to find people with roots in Israel in order to help them reconnect to the Jewish People.

“Genetics has the potential to make the question of Jewish identity both more complicated and more interesting, “ Freund told Breaking Israel News. “It can open up new chapters in the destiny of the Jewish people as more people discover the secret of their past buried in their chromosomes. This is definitely an issue we are going to hear a lot more about in the near future.”

DNA testing has become one of the tools Freund uses in his search for communities around the world with ancestral connections to the Jewish people, but he recognizes its limits.

“DNA testing can be one factor that we consider as part of the big picture, but it is only one piece of the puzzle,” Freund explained. “We look at a broad range of factors, such as history, background, folklore and customs. Jewish identity is much more complex than the results you get in a petri dish.”

Freund predicted that advances in DNA technology “herald a global movement of return,” noting that this new wave of people discovering their Jewish ancestry may have a Biblical basis.

I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore. Genesis 22:17

“There are an estimated 14-15 million Jews in a world population of seven billion. That makes us a very miniscule drop in a very large bucket. So what happened to those promises made to the Biblical Patriarchs?” asked Freund. “Perhaps the answer is that there are a lot more of us out there than we realize and maybe DNA technology will encourage many non-Jews with Jewish ancestry to reconnect with their Jewish roots, and encourage other Jews to return to the fold.”

Status Versus Identity

Greenspan is careful to add a disclaimer about the significance of the results of genetic tests.

“We are not saying that the DNA proves Jewish status,” he said. “It doesn’t work that way. We can scientifically prove that a person has Jewish ancestors but that does not give them Jewish status. That has its own specific set of rules, and isn’t a result of scientific proof.”

According to Jewish law, Jewish status is matrilineal, transferred from the mother to her children. The child of a Jewish father and a non-Jewish mother is not considered as having the status of a Jew.

Jewish status can also be the result of conversion. Therefore, the lack of Jewish ancestors does not mean a person is not Jewish, since a female ancestor could have converted to Judaism. Similarly, Jewish ancestry does not prove Jewish status, since a female ancestor may have converted to another religion.

Thus, a person can have the halachic status of being a Jew while not having the corresponding genetic identity. Or he can have Jewish ancestors, even on his mother’s side, and still not fulfill the halachic requirements of being a member of the tribe.

This does not detract from the significance of DNA testing, noted Greenspan.

“It is certainly an important factor for identity,” he contended. “For the past 15 years, I have seen how it affects people when they discover Jewish roots they were previously unaware of. Their connection was buried due to our tortured history. People take a DNA test, find out they have Jewish ancestry, and become intellectually interested. Usually they become supporters of Judaism and Israel.”

Freund cautioned that the issue is complex. “Identity is important and it is very personal,” he said. “But it does not obligate society or the community to accept that identity or confer recognition or status. There are many people who, based on the result of a DNA test, mistakenly assumed that they were Jews, and mistakenly assumed on that basis they would be able to make aliyah (immigrate to Israel).”

According to Freund, Jewish identity is found in the soul as much as it is in the chromosomes.

“I think the Jewish spark can never be extinguished. It might be buried or hidden, but at some point it is going to burst forth,” Freund said. “I’ve heard from countless people who related that they always felt an inexplicable attraction or connection to the Jewish people, and after DNA testing showed a genetic connection, it answered that question for them.”

Recovering From Religious Repression 

Freedom is a very strong value for most people, but freedom can be misleading in many ways.

You may appear to be free on the outside, especially if you “come and go” as you please, but if you are repressed by any type of controlling organization, no matter how well-meaning, you may be living in a virtual prison with invisible bars.

Although this article is written for anyone experiencing religious repression, it is not intended to point fingers or judge spiritual beliefs. Rather, the intention is to identify the serious repercussions of repression, while also enlightening a path to freedom. 

The first step is recognizing the dynamics of organizational repression and how it seamlessly operates through a system of disempowerment.

Repercussions of Repression

No doubt, many religious organizations use various forms of repression in order to control church members so that they obey religious doctrine, but the irony is that repression does not stop people from indulging in “sinful behavior” and, in fact, it often results in the exact opposite.

Statistics and direct experience clearly demonstrate that the more rules and consequences a society has, the more “illicit behavior” develops.

Although this applies to any religion where repression is pervasive, and we are not just talking about any one religion, the statistics found in Utah, USA exemplifies the cost of religious repression.

Although Utah is one of the most beautiful places on Earth, it is actually most known for its predominant religious culture.

On the surface, there is a strong emphasis on family values, morals, and ethics – most people are kind and appear relatively happy, but if you look at statistics, you quickly discover that appearances are drastically deceiving, and, in fact, countless “white picket fences” cloak dysfunctional dynamics that top the national average.

Even though over 60% of Utah’s residents are Latter-Day Saints (members of the Mormon Church) and Mormonism forbids the use of drugs, including alcohol, tobacco, coffee, and even tea, Utah has one of the highest rates of prescription drug addiction in the USA, as well as related deaths caused by opiate overdose.

The church also strongly emphasizes family values, and yet Utah’s domestic violence homicide rate is 13 percent higher than the rest of the nation with domestic violence homicides accounting for 47 percent of all homicides in Utah in 2015.

Utah’s child abuse statistics are also among the highest in the country, and, in fact, statistics show that more children are sexually abused in Utah than any other US state.

Taking all this into consideration, it is not surprising that a study by Mental Health America ranked Utah the most depressed state, which explains why Utah has the highest rate of anti-depressant drug use in the USA.

Sadly, a devastating symptom of Utah’s excessively high prevalence of depression is the tripling of its youth suicide rate since just 2007.

And, if all that is still not enough, with similarly high statistics on rape and sexual assault, Google search trends have ranked Utah the #1 porn capital of America, which is quite astounding when you consider that the Mormon religion condemns any sexual conduct outside marital relations, including pornography and even masturbation.

Although there may be ways to rationalize these statistics, they inevitably point to a serious issue that demonstrates the repercussions of repression.

Many other studies conclude that the fall-out of repression commonly results in some form of escape that inevitably leads to an underworld of shame and secrecy, involving,

drugs

sex or other addictions

often manifests as anxiety disorders, depression, and suicide

As we explore the dynamics of religious repression, please remember that we are not singling out any one religion – we are talking about any religion that promotes judgment, obedience and therefore, disempowerment.

Why Repression Backfires

Repression virtually always operates through a system of fear that relies on self-judgment to drive self-regulation.
This means that church members are taught to judge themselves according to religious doctrine, and consequently, their fear of disobedience is intended to prevent “ungodly behavior.”

However, this ultimately backfires because it is human nature to be attracted to those forbidden behaviors, and, therefore, those behaviors become compelling.

As a result, one of two things occurs:

We suppress our desires, but suppression often results in psychological disorders such as anxiety and depression

We act on our desires in secrecy, but the shame and secrecy of indulging in a forbidden behavior can create an addiction to the behavior or cause other types of dysfunctions

When it comes to repression, every road leads to, and from, disempowerment – and when people feel powerless, their behaviors become dysfunctional.

The Purpose of Repression

Many religions began with pure intentions but whenever there is a hierarchy of power and the potential for monetary gain, the religion inevitably becomes a business and its church may even become a corporation.

Although local church leaders may have high spiritual ethics, they don’t always realize that they work for a business and that many of the church’s rules and bylaws are intended to perpetuate profits.

Just as retail stores need buyers, all religions need believers – followers – and this means that it is necessary to foster a parish that blindly follows the faith and doesn’t raise questions that could threaten the (financial) integrity of the organization – and therefore, repression is a necessary component to its survival.

Most local church leaders are completely unaware of the consequences that inevitably spring forth from religious repression, and because they have no idea that repression leads to the behaviors it is meant to inhibit, they unknowingly perpetuate the very “sins” they condemn.

When religious rules undermine the values they are meant to preserve, those rules are self-sabotaging and obsolete.

The Formula for Repression

The dynamics of repression are meant to be invisible from within the organization, but when you observe from outside, the formula for repression is easy to identify.


Step 1: Powerlessness

When a church is built on the premise that people are spiritually powerless without the religion, and must depend on the religion’s leaders, and/or following religious doctrine in order to have a relationship with God, it sets the stage for repression.
If you were born into a religion or any structured organization, you probably had no awareness of transferring your power to this entity, simply because you modeled your parents and other abiding members, and more than likely, you had no idea that you even had any power to give in the first place.

Nonetheless, any time we believe something has more power than us, power over us or the power to provide something we think we need, we instinctively relinquish power – inadvertently giving our intrinsic power to that external source. 

Once we give it away, organizations can use it to control us any way they desire, and in most cases, that powerlessness makes us blind to the very dynamic that causes it.

However, an external entity can never repress or imprison you unless you give it your power, and, in fact, it has no power over you without using your power against you.

Step 2: Conditional Worth

Through formal and informal religious teachings, church members are taught strict conditions and rules that must be consistently met in order to be worthy of church membership, family inclusion and good standing in the community.

Acceptance and approval are the rewards for obedience, but in order to meet the rules and live up to the conditions, natural authentic expression must be repressed.

And when expression is repressed, disempowerment results.

Due to unrealistic expectations, it is impossible to meet all the rules and conditions all the time, which results in inevitable failure and consequently, shame.

But just the thought of disobeying religious doctrine is enough to induce feelings of guilt, impending regret, and fear of rejection, and, in fact, church members are systematically programmed to feel unworthy to such a deep extent that even secret shortcomings induce shame – in some faiths, they must even be secretly ‘confessed’ to the church organization – and this allows religions to control each member internally.

Preying upon the fear of unworthiness is a powerful strategy for repression because there is no greater manipulation than teaching people that their worth is conditioned on following rules, especially when you consider that human beings instinctively fear that unworthiness will lead to “tribal shame” and abandonment, and our primitive instincts associate this with the fear of death.

Furthermore, according to some religions, shame follows us into the next dimension, making us unworthy of eternal salvation or other heavenly rewards, and depending on the religion, if you are deemed unworthy, your punishment for “bad behavior” might be eternal damnation where your loved ones go to a heavenly afterworld while you go somewhere else.

No doubt, the horrific fear of “tribal shame” and eternal punishment perpetuates powerlessness and repression, but even holy promises and impending dread are often not enough without two more steps in the formula.

Step 3: System of Judgment

As parishioners portray an acceptable image and conform to the standards that are dictated by the organization, they play the game according to the rules by fulfilling roles, performing required duties, paying dues or tithing (donations), and acting according to expectations.

In order to make sure everyone is complying, an invisible system of judgment is in place.

Although usually unspoken, church members are expected to keep each other in line through “mutual judgment”, which means that your church community of friends and family are always watching you (and you are always watching them) and if you break the rules for any reason, someone you know might report you to church officials who deal with you directly through punishment or even rejection from the church.
But possibly even worse than excommunication, your “sins” are publicized through community gossip, resulting in “tribal shame” and feelings of worthlessness that can cause deep emotional trauma, and with no support from those closest to you, the repercussions of being judged ultimately manifest – as demonstrated in the kind of statistics I mentioned earlier.

One important thing to keep in mind is that that fear of “tribal shame” (being shamed by one’s community) always makes people conceal behaviors that could be judged, and this leads to secrecy – a device of disempowerment and division.

Step 4: The Invisible Power of Secrecy

Virtually all dysfunctional behaviors and dangerous social dynamics are held together by secrecy, and, in fact, the formula for repression creates the space where an ‘underworld’ of shame and secrecy can grow unnoticed.

If no one is openly talking about their issues and everyone is hiding their real thoughts and feelings because they are afraid of being judged or reported, each individual silently believes that he/she is the only one with any problems or concerns, and believing you are the only one increases the fear of judgment and consequences, thereby perpetuating more secrecy. 

Even though you might be part of a “tight-knit” religious community, when you have to hide your real self or face intolerable judgment and possible rejection for speaking openly, it is very common to feel all alone in your own confined world – and this often results in anxiety, depression and suicidal ideation.

Even though churches pretend to shun secrecy, they really depend on it to keep church members repressed, and, in fact, the Invisible Power of Secrecy is the glue that holds the whole illusion together.

Without secrecy, large groups of people could not be repressed – only through a system of secrecy and separation can an organization maintain the blind compliance of its followers.

While repression creates a world of secrecy, secrecy perpetuates the cycle of repression. 

Recovering from Repression – The Journey to Freedom
Recovering from religious repression is a journey from disempowerment to freedom, and it usually takes a fair amount of time – but in the end, nothing is of greater value.

The journey begins when you choose freedom over repression and you acknowledge that you have the right and ability to reclaim your power.

But, you must do it for yourself, and you must be prepared to overcome resistance from those who are invested in your repression, as well as those who are also programmed to be repressed.

The following guide is intended to assist you on this journey: 

Disentangle Your Worth

As long as your worth is conditioned on meeting unrealistic religious expectations, you will consequently give your power away, so it is essential to begin the process of claiming your worth, and this requires you to release the need for external approval and acceptance.

Deep inside, you already know that you are unconditionally worthy, and you do not need approval or acceptance from anyone.

Inevitably, this means that you must stop seeking external permission, you must listen to your inner guidance and you must learn to trust yourself.


Relinquish Perfection

Maybe your religion teaches that you must exhibit “perfect behavior” in order to be saved, but salvation cannot be found through perfection because,

first of all, you don’t need to be saved by an external source

second of all, perfection is impossible to attain because it is unrealistic, and no matter how perfect you may try to be, just like quicksand, the perpetual pitfalls of perfection will suck you into shame and secrecy at every turn

So, instead of wasting precious energy by judging imperfect behavior (yours and others), why not save yourself by practicing radical forgiveness?

Subsequently, as you generously allow yourself space to breathe without perfection’s punishing hand, you will discover the space for exploration and expression, and as you slowly fill this space, you will align with freedom.

Find Objective Help

Find a counselor, therapist or open minded professional (or friend) who is not connected to the religion in any way.

This should be someone who can objectively support you, and if you so choose, help you break free of repression (regardless of whether you stay or leave the religion).

 Also, consider that group support can ease your journey out of repression.

If you cannot locate a local support group, why not create one yourself? You might be surprised who shows up to join you.

Obliterate Secrecy

Healing the fall-out of repression requires the obliteration of secrecy because when issues are revealed, it becomes impossible for them to perpetuate in the same way.

Of course, disclosure alone does not resolve dysfunctional dynamics, but without it, healing and resolution are nearly impossible.

Putting an end to secrecy dissolves the foundation of religious repression because once parishioners begin to share honestly, the truth is exposed and it is not long before the organization loses power.

Open communication will likely bring hidden issues to a head, and, as a result, things might seem to get worse before they get better, but if you can ride the tide by being true to yourself, the turbulent current will slowly begin to calm down over time, and along with your power, you can reclaim your life.

Communication and information results in empowerment and empowered followers stop following.

Plant Seeds of Higher Consciousness

As your fear subsides and your confidence grows, consider “planting seeds” that get others asking their own questions.
Humanity’s collective consciousness is waking up, so a gentle yet thought-provoking comment or question could be the tipping point, and when you provide seeds of higher consciousness, it silently communicates that you are someone others can open up to, when and if they are ready, and you might actually be surprised where those seeds sprout.

Save Only Yourself

Supporting others on their journey to freedom is a beautiful gift, but remember you are not responsible for anyone’s awakening but your own, and the more you try to save those you love, the more you risk being pulled down to a level where you can’t help anyone.

Along those same lines, it is important to give up the idea that anyone or anything can save you.

The way out of repression is through self-empowerment and this means that each person must find and express their own power. 

If you expect or allow someone to save you, or you try to save someone, you are only trading one form of repression for another, and, therefore, nothing really changes.

Discover the Truth

In the process of reclaiming your power, it is usually very helpful to understand the hidden truth about the religion that seems to have power over you, so do some independent research.

As you investigate, be open minded and look for “holes in the story” – where details don’t match up or history doesn’t make sense.

Discovering the truth may rock your whole world but, along with many others on the same path, you will recover, and once free from repression you can build a new foundation on solid ground.

Discover ‘God’ on Your Own Terms

Most religious followers are taught that they need a “middle man” in order to commune with God, and, therefore, if you want to have a spiritual relationship with the Divine, you must depend on those “certified” as go-betweens.

The truth is, you don’t need religion or a religious “middle man” in order to connect with God, and, in fact, no matter what you have been told, a deep connection with the Divine can only come through a direct relationship.

So, what would it look like to discover God on your own terms?

This answer is unique for each of us, but one thing is clear – the Divine Connection that most of us seek can only blossom when we stop looking outside ourselves.

Only by going within can you cultivate an intimate spiritual relationship with God, and in this sacred space, you can finally experience the kind of unconditional love that can heal you from the inside out.

As you begin to remember who you really are, the truth will dissolve the illusion of powerlessness, shame, and unworthiness, and you will be free to express your True-Self as you fearlessly live your best possible life!

We are living at a remarkable time of Global Awakening, and, as a result, the restraints of repression are becoming obvious so that we can finally free ourselves.

You are love, you are light and all is well!

Religious Maddness …and Conceptual Blindness 


I have been writing a lot about Islam as a religion of jihad whose goal is to annihilate or enslave infidels around the world. 

I have also written about a Pope who sees jihad as a ‘peace movement’ because he cannot stand the idea that religions, including his own, are not peaceful at all.

The world is descending into madness. Humanity is proceeding down a dark path to immanent oblivion with the slope of that decline accelerating and even the common men and women on the street can feel the wrongness of everything that is going on.

All the votes for Trump and the rising right wing in Europe are shouting but it is too late to avoid a colossal collapse of civilization – an apocalypse that religion has predicted since the beginning of religion. 

Yet at the same time we have a huge number of people who think everything is fine.

David Stockman identifies a new form of jihad saying,

“It’s nothing short of a media jihad, or an assassination campaign. Nothing is too trivial to use as an indictment of Trump’s character, his temperament or his inexperience. 

This is extraordinary in its intensity, and I don’t think we’ve seen the end of it yet.”

I have also been writing against the most basic racism we face and that is against women. 

Some Muslims react when I say Islam makes women subservient to men.

The Pope and the Church does as well when it teaches that women cannot be ordained priests because Jesus willingly chose only men as his apostles. Those objecting to women priests say he was only following the norms of his time. 

That is the most disgusting lie I have heard in a long time that has created an unspoken form of terrorism against women that is hidden from plain site.

In the Gospel of Philip, which of course was repressed by the Church, we read the apostles complaining about Jesus’ close relationship with Mary.

There were three who always walked with the Jesus:

Mary, his mother, and her sister

Magdalene, the one who was called his companion

And the companion of the Jesus was Mary Magdalene.

Jesus loved Mary more than all the disciples, and used to kiss her softly on her hand. The rest of the disciples were offended by it and expressed disapproval.

They said to him,

“Why do you love her more than all of us?”

He answered and said to them,

“Why do I not love you like her?”

The heart of the Church closed a long time ago when it rejected the true life of Jesus and its only redemption is its love of Jesus’ mother.

As we have recently asserted, one cannot have a lie and have one’s heart at the same time. 

In the Gospel of Mary, we read,

“Peter saying to Mary, ‘Sister, we know that the Savior loved you more than the rest of the women’.”

The Gospel of Thomas also sustains this love Jesus has for the women he had in life and together we have many who conclude that Jesus, the real man and rabbi was married.

The early founders of the Church raped these women out of the life of Jesus and now two thousand years later we see that the Pope is an accomplish to the rape of thousands of women because he will not lift his lips and even whisper about their pain and suffering.

I say this because the Pope said in Sweden, the rape capital of the world,

“Blessed are those who look into the eyes of the abandoned and marginalized and show them their closeness,” the Argentine-born pontiff said.

“Blessed are those who renounce their own comfort in order to help others,” he said also.

He is blessing and covering up a situation where refugees are raping women across Europe not saying one word about their plight. 

I condemn him for this huge oversight. If renouncing women’s comfort implies rape what can we say about the stream of ideas that are coming out of his mouth in recent months.

I was recently invited into a Catholic church to pray with 50 men devoted to Mary.

You can be sure I will bring these issues up. At these ends of times it would be nice if the Church would come clean and lead the way to brighter times but that is a dream and illusion because it just is not going to happen. 

Might as well imagine Clinton falling in love with Trump!

God, Religion and Holy Concepts

In terms of God realization, no matter what religion we follow, God only comes to those who can empty their minds.

How can God come to someone who is full of themselves, full of their thoughts and ideas? There simply is no space for something so big to get into something so small or so full of itself.

The level of the mind I am talking about is full of stored concepts and memories and is very boring as anyone can tell you who has to listen to an old person walk down memory lane.

Most people who talk too much are trapped in their conceptual level, as are most religious fundamentalists who interpret the meaning of everything from ancient books. They think they are thinking for themselves but they are just trapped by old fixed ideas that they hold onto for dear life.

The time world of a conceptual person is the past. That is why they love books from the past especially bibles. The conceptual person is into giving authority to their ideas or in some religious cases give authority to their gurus.

Bottom line, is God is so big he cannot fit into anything as small as an idea or concept. 

We Need Our Concepts and Ideas

The capacity to form ideas and concepts is fundamental to our awareness.

Without this conceptual machinery to process our thoughts and primitive emotions, our organism would be much like an animal, only aware of the emotional chemical hormones released in response to stimuli. We would know pain but not the meaning of it. 

We would be able to communicate but we would not use any words or remember any thoughts and our internal life would be conditioned by the environment like Pavlov’s dogs. Idealism as we know it would be absent from life.

There is a positive side to concepts and ideas. Conceptual people tend to be idealistic, peace loving and content. They have strong feelings of devotion and commitment to people, concepts or ideals. They have a strong connection to the past, to traditions, institutions and authority.

This of course is not all bad.

There is much beauty to be held by many ideas but if we cannot let them go we are trapped.

Concepts are only mental models or maps of reality. All change on the being level happens beyond the world of concepts. Most concepts are designed to prevent us from evolving.

Concepts are usually obstacles to change.

The conceptual place in our minds is where we want everyone to think and believe like we do that is why it takes courage to speak out our truths and why so few people do it. Religious violence has demonstrated this truth over and over throughout history.

Fundamentalists are those who feel the most passionate about their beliefs and are ready to force down the throats of others their ideas.

Through two thousand years, many have died at Christian hands and many from the hands of those who believe in Islam. Religions tend to create separations and that eventually leads to violence.

Religions are often violent because fundamentally they teach people not to listen to anything that conflicts with the ideas of their religion.

Religions thus block communication through chronic inability and willingness to listen, and that is violent. We can call violence peace all we want but that does not change the violence.

In fact, it inflames it.

Conclusion

It is impossible to be in the mind in an attached way and in the heart at the same time. 

God does come to the open hearted but rejects all the small minds that have lost the way of the heart.

Today religion and politics as well as economics and finance are mixing together to create a lethal brew and it is all terribly disturbing. My heart is hoping that Trump gets elected because I fear for my family and the rest of the world because I truly believe that Clinton will start a war with Russia and that probably would mean a bad ending for many of us.

I hope Trump becomes president and becomes best friends with Putin because friendship is so much better than nuclear war. We know Clinton and her friends think that Putin is evil and a reincarnation of Hitler but that is not how Russians see it.

Things are amiss in the world, especially in America, but even in England we have MI5 chief Andrew Parker saying that there were around 3,000,

“violent Islamic extremists in the UK, mostly British,” yet he and others go on and on about Russia being such a threat.

It is the establishment that is the real threat, and establishment without heart…

THE 613 LAWS of the OLD TESTAMENT Called the Mitzvot


A simplified listing of the Laws of God as they were understood by the Old Testament Hebrews, and the Hebrew people of the present day.
The Hebrew word for “LAW” is Torah. In its most limited definition it refers to the Pentateuch 1. Yet, the word, Torah, is used to speak of the entire Old Testament as well. 

Torah basically means “to teach or to instruct”. It infers to either human instruction or Divine instruction. Through the Law, God shows His interest in all aspects of man’s life. Motivated by love, God instructs His people in the ways of Wisdom and knowledge. Since God’s Law is given for our good, its regulations, both negative and positive are for our protection and prosperity. 

The Law is the revealed mind of God. His Will is His commandment, and His commandment is His Law. Thus, the Law is Divine since it comes from a Divine source. It is also perfect, as God Himself is perfect. God’s Law supercedes all other laws. It transcends all other law, making it the Supreme Law of the entire earth.

God’s Law is also comprehensive and universal. It speaks to all areas of life, and to every living soul upon the face of the earth. The Law speaks of ceremonial truths, moral truths and dietary truths. It speaks of man’s duty toward God, and man’s duty toward his fellow man.

The Law addresses, philosophy, psychology, biology, physics, all other sciences, economics, ecology, Theology, culture, politics, military relations, international and domestic relations, family life, church life, business, criminal and civil law, and every other aspect of life thinkable. There is nothing that God’s Law fails to address specifically. God regulates all life by His perfect Law.

The New Testament word for Law is Nomos. This is where we get the word Theonomic [Theo = God – Nomos = Law]. The New Testament is just as much God’s Law as the Torah.

Since God is the Lawgiver, and His Word is His Law, then it follows that every Word which proceeds from His mouth is His Law. The New Testament is as much God’s Law as the Old. The two are One harmonious union.

Furthermore, the New Testament explains the Old. While the New Testament is contained in the Old Testament, the Old acts as particular case studies of applied jurisprudence.

The following list will help in understanding the division of God’s Old Testament Law, which the Hebrews have recorded, as 613.

If we combine both Old and New Testament as One Law, the list grows and becomes more comprehensive. Yet, what we find in the New Testament is simply an augmentation of what is already contained in the Old.

Is Donald Trump The Modern Day King Cyrus the Great?

Is it Donald Trump’s role to Herald the Messianic Redemption of all 12-Tribed Israel

 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday congratulated Donald Trump on his election vict

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday congratulated Donald Trump on his election victory, saying the Republican is “a true friend of the State of Israel.” November 9, 2016                                                

On November 8, 2016, one of the greatest upsets in the political history of the United States occurred when Donald Trump, the New York building mogul swept the landscape of the United States away from the Hilary Clinton, the wife of the former President of the United States, William Blaine Clinton. 

Don’t even consider that this would have been done except by the nod and the direct intervention of the Creator G-d of the Universes. Now we must ask, where does Trump fit into the prophetic landscape of the prophets of old? 

The first question we again ask, “is the new President Elect, Donald Trump the reincarnation of King Cyrus the Great, as written in the TaNaKh (Old Testament) in the prophetic Book of Isaiah?: 

Isaiah 45:1 – “Thus says the Lord to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held – to subdue nations before him and loose the armor of kings, to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not be shut.” 

Here we read it that King Cyrus was HaShem’s anointed (messiah). So we ask, was King Cyrus a “righteous gentile? Did King Cyrus receive the blessing from the G-d of Israel to prepare the pathway for the emancipation of the Jews from the powerful grip of the Babylonians? Was his role in life to open the gates for the messianic return of the Jews from captivity in Babylon; the archetypical 70 Nations of the world residing outside the Land of Israel?  


 King Cyrus the Great, the Persian Shah and his Jewess wife, Queen Esther

The G-d of Israel truly was preparing for a massive pathway of redemption for the Jews who were still in the seventy years of exile in Babylon according to the Prophet Jeremiah. Suddenly, upon the horizon from the east there came the armies of the Medes and the Persians. In a stroke of military adeptness, they diverted the waters of the Euphrates Rivers and with military sappers, infiltrated under the gates into the city and toppled the most impregnable city of the then known world.

The Babylonian King Belshazzar and the Hand-Writing on the Wall of his Banquet Hall

At that same hour, Belshazzar, the King of Babylon was hosting a banquet to the elite of the Babylonian Empire. Their sacrilege was that they were using the golden goblets from Solomon’s Temple to celebrate the 70 years of Jewish captivity and how the G-d of the Jews was not capable to redeem or free His own chosen people. 

Sometime during the early Babylonian era, the Prophet Ezekiel was met by an angelic representative of the G-d of Israel by the River Chebar descending in a divine vehicle. It was surrounded with stormy winds as the brilliance of the fearsome, Chayos each with four heads and four wings that swept along with the appearance of fiery torches of coal swept across in front of him.


 Vision of the Prophet Ezekiel along River Chebar with G-d’s Merkabah

The Vision of the Prophet Ezekiel along River Chebar with G-d’s Merkabah

Each of the Chayos took with them an Ofanim, who carried the burning chariot, that had the appearance of a wheel within a wheel. Ezekiel wrote what the angel said to him:

Ezekiel 2:8, 3:4-7 – “Son of Man, heed that which I speak to you: Be not rebellious like the rebellious house…He said to me, “Son of Man go and approach the House of Israel and speak to them with My words. For not to a people of incoherent language and difficult speech are you being sent, but to the House of Israel…But the House of Israel will not wish to heed you for they do not wish heed Me, for the entire House of Israel is hard-browed and brazen-hearted.”   

Would you believe that King Cyrus along with his entire armies have now been identified as the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel? As we consider these following facts of history, what we are seeing is that the armies of the Medes and the Persians were literally the “brazen faced Lost Tribes of the House of Israel”? 


King Cyrus the Great was a Ruler of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel

 King Cyrus the Great

King Cyrus the Great of the Pasargadae Israelite Tribe of Gad

King Cyrus was a descendant of the Tribe of Gad of the House of Israel. He was a ruling descendant of the Pasargadae tribe and his brilliant military commander, Gobryas, was his uncle, one of the ruling “kings” of the Tribe of Gad. During the years of the United Kingdom of Kings David and Solomon, the Tribe of Gad lived alongside the Tribes of Manasseh and Reuben with their immense flock of cattle and sheep on the eastern or “other-side of the Jordan River”. 

It was also they who rejected the Royal House of Kings David and Solomon, refused to worship in the famous golden Temple of Solomon, while rejecting the lineage of high priests of the House of Zadok, and rejecting the ruling Jewish rabbinic judiciary of Torah Law called the Mechoquek. 

Today we have the capacity to explore now the profound differences and discrepancies between the classical Persian calendar rewritten by the Roman Catholic monks, who were also of Lost Tribes descent. 

The Jewish Rabbinic Calendar and the Roman Catholic Christian Church Conventional Calendar 

It was in the 2nd century during the famous Tanna of the fourth generation, Rabbi Jose ben Halafta (alt. Halpetha) was recognized as one of the great students of Rabbi Akiva. This rabbi was so well known and recognized as one the foremost scholars of halakha and the aggadah of his day. 

He was a teacher and mentor to of the famed Judah ha-Nasi. As such, he was even so today well known that it was documented in the Mishnah as being the fifth most frequently mentioned sage in the Mishnah. He was a teacher and mentor to many of the post-destruction of King Herod’s Temple era of which included the well-known student and notable sage, Judah ha-Nasi that Rabbi Jose ben Halafta even today is simply known as Rabbi Jose. 

It was Rabbi Jose who wrote the Jewish Rabbinic Calendar, the history of the Jewish people as documented by the Jewish Rabbanim from the era of the Garden of Eden to the Roman era of that which was called the Seder Olam Rabbah or the “Great Order of the World.” 

There has been a long discrepancy in the realms of “conventional chronology” of the Persian Imperial Era which the rabbinic Jews during the era of the Exilarchs in Iraq were now being challenged by a new history of the world written by a Lost Israelite, now a monk of the Roman Catholic Christian Church. 

Dionysius Exiguus was a Roman Catholic Christian monk, Dionysius Exiguus, who was a 6th century Scythian who lived near modern Dobruja, a region shared by Romania and Bulgaria. It was he who coined the term AD as a designation of ancient historical time. AD meant “Anno Domini” Nostri Jesu Christi or in the “Year of our Lord” Jesus Christ. 

The term BC came later and it was designated in the English language as “Before Christ” but originally it was called “a.C.n.”, which was the abbreviation of “Ante Christum Natum” which in Latin meant “before the birth of Christ”. 

How this Latin definition became converted to English is not well known, but what is known is that it was not universally accepted. In Europe alone; in the ancient French language it was known as “avant J.C.” (before Jesus Christ) and in German as “vor Christi Geburt” (before Christ’s birth). 

As we can see, Dionysius Exiguus was a descendant of the Royal Scythians, the famed Lost Israelite “horsemen of the North” by birth, probably a descendant of the ancient Scythians. In the epic research of the books and studies of Brit Am we today can comprehend better that they were of the Royal Scythian of Israelite descent. They represented one to the leading sectors of the Ten Lost Tribes of the House of Israel. 

These facts alone speak loudly about the major fragmentation and division in the ancient brotherhood between the Hebrews that included both the Jews and the Benjamites represented by the Southern Kingdom of Judah and the Ten Northern Tribes in the Northern Kingdom of Israel.

Daniel the Prophet, Magi and the Prime Minister of the Babylonian Chaldeans

While in Babylon, Daniel of royal blood through the house of King Hezekiah, Daniel was sent into exile early into the ranks of civil service in Nebuchadnezzar’s government very early after his exile to Babylon. 

Within months, when it became noticed that Daniel had the ‘ear of the Lord of hosts’ and was able to master the mysteries of the universe, the king made him leader of the Magi or the Chaldeans. It was this auspicious group who ran the scientific institutions and were the court advisors to the king. 

Daniel soon became the prime minister or ruler of the main province of Babylon, chief of the governors of the provinces (2:48). Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah were placed in strategic positions as Ministers of Governmental Affairs of the Imperial Government in Babylon. Within the top echelon of the Babylonian government, God had planted his trusted servants even within the highest ranking positions next to King Nebuchadnezzar, a type of the future Antichrist. 

Rabbi Yose b. Halafta in his Jewish History, Seder Olam Rabbah (The Great Order of the World) 

Here we can review this rich arena when Daniel and the three worthies were put in the fiery furnace for not bowing down to the statue of King Nebuchadnezzar. In the BibleSearchers Reflections article titled, “The Jewish Rabbinic Calendar and the History of the Exile of the Jews”, we can lift up the canopy that has hidden this enigmatic era of the Persian Empire when we ask, “Who was Cyrus the Great, Darius the Mede, Artaxerses and Ahasuerus, the Ahasuerus of Queen Esther’s fame as we reflect upon the following? As Bible Searchers Reflections wrote: 

BibleSearchers Reflections – “According to the rabbinic chronology initially written by Rabbi Yose b. Halafta in his work, Seder Olam Rabbah (The Great Order of the World), we learn that Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the temple of Solomon in the year of 421 BCE according to the Rabbinic calendar year equivalent to the 586 BCE date as rewritten 900 years later called the Roman Catholic Christian Gregorian calendar known today as the “Conventional Calendar”. 

King Cyrus the Great whose name in Hebrew is called “Koresh” conquered the invincible Babylon in 539 BCE, according to the conventional calendar, yet according to the “Seder Olam Rabbah”, Babylon was not conquered according to the Jewish Rabbinic calendar until the Jewish Year of 368 BCE. 

Two years later, according to the rabbis, Xerses, whose name was also Ahashverosh (Ahasuerus) ruled over Persia between the years of 366 – 352 BCE. Then at the whim of the royal monarch, Ahasuerus decided to host a banquet for several weeks with his top military and government dignitaries. 

It was during this time, when in a drunken state, Ahasuerus summoned his wife, Vashti, to parade herself in front of all his military dignitaries, which she refused and he dismissed her as his wife and queen. Later Ahasuerus married the Jewess Esther to rule with him as his queen. This era according to the conventional Gregorian chronology gives the reign of Xerses as 486-465 BCE. 

According to Vendyl Jones, the legendary explorer for the “Golden Ark of the Wilderness Tabernacle” whose life and mission is reputed to be the foundation of the popular movie series, “Indiana Jones” to whom credit must be given, later revealed in the famous Hebrew documents called the Emeq HaMelekh “The Valley of the Kings” to the public. This epic document then revealed that King Cyrus (Koresh), Darius (Daryavesh) the Mede and Xerses (Ahashverosh /Biblical Ahasuerus) are all the same ruler. 

As such, according to Rabbi Yose b. Halafta in his work, Seder Olam Rabbah, there was one Cyrus, one Xerses and one Darius until Alexander the Great swept aside the Persian Empire after he crossed the Cilician Gates and defeated the Persian Shah Darius II Nothus in the Battle of Issus in the conventional calendar year of 333 BCE. 

The Oriental Empire of Babylon had 53 years of rule and the Persian Empire had 51 years of rule until the Occidental Empire of Greece toppled the Oriental potentates, a total of 104 years. 

To the Jewish understanding in history, Cyrus the Great was the same ruler as Xerses and Darius the Mede, for the name Darius actually meant ‘Lord’ and Xerses meant ‘monarch’. 

The Multitude of Names for King Cyrus the Great and the Chronology of the Persian Imperial Rule 

As we now know the name “Cyrus” comes from “Kyros” meaning “far sighted” or “young” and it can also mean “Kyrios” which means “lord”. Later we learn that King Cyrus at the Persian banquet within the first two years of his rule in Babylon was called Ahasuerus (“Khshayârshâ”) which meant “prince, head, or chief”). King Cyrus was also known as Artaxerses, which meant “righteous ruler” who in the biblical text of Esther was called Ahasuerus (aka King Cyrus, “Lord” Darius I). 

Compare this with the Roman Catholic Christian Church fabricated “conventional chronology” called the Gregorian Calendar. The Babylonian Empire ruled for 48 years and then under one Cyrus, one Xerses, two Darius and two Artaxerses plus several intermittent upstarts and rivals, the Persians ruled for 207 years, a difference of 156 years between the rabbinic and the Christian Catholic conventional Gregorian calendar. 

Here is a brief summary: 

Rabbinic Chronology – Event – Conventional Chronology 

421 BCE Nebuchadnezzar destroys Solomon’s 586 BCE

Temple.

368 BC Cyrus (Darius I) begins the Persian rule 539 BCE 

366-352 BCE Reign of Xerses – Ahasuerus 486-465 BCE
 and Queen Esther 

351 BCE Temple rebuilding, second year of 520 BCE
Darius II (Artaxerses) or Darius II Nothus 

317 BCE End of Darius Nothus II’s reign 332 BCE

Beginning of Greek rule under Alexander the Great 

68 CE Second Temple destroyed 70 CE 

Another way of comparing the Rabbinic and the conventional chronologies, was to align the date when the rebuilding of the Second Temple called Zerubbabel’s Temple in the year of 351 BCE (rabbinic calendar) and lasted as King Herod’s Temple to 70 CE (conventional calendar) when the temple was destroyed by the Romans. This was a time span of a total of 422 years. 

As such, the seventy (70) weeks ‘to be determined among thy people’(Jews) prophecy to Daniel, known as the 490-year prophecy would have put the time from the destruction of the first temple in 421 BCE to the destruction of Herod’s temple in Jerusalem at 68 CE, a date favored by many rabbis. 

If we use the 68 CE date for the destruction of Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem, then in the conventional chronology the time period from the destruction of Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem in 586 BCE to the destruction of King Herod’s Temple in 68 CE would be 654 years. 

King Darius I the Mede called Xerses in the conventional chronology has now been accepted to be the Biblical Ahasuerus and the king who married Queen Esther. As such, the successor of King Darius I the Mede was Darius II who was the son of King Cyrus who was half Mede and Persian of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel and half Jewish by his mother, the Jewess Queen Esther. 

Considering this, the second and third return of the Jewish people with Ezra and Nehemiah would have occurred during the reign of a ruler of Persia that was of Jewish descent, because King Darius II’s mother was a Jew. The decree to rebuild the temple of Zerubbabel in 351 BCE (rabbinic calendar) would have been exactly seventy years after its destruction in 421 BCE.” 

The United States and the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel 

So fact upon fact, most of you who read the blogs of Destination Yisrael are descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel. This fact as now we shall learn includes the President elect of the United States; Donald Trump. 

Yet we still persist in our quest to find the link between Donald Trump, destined to be the new President of the United States of America. Are we clueless and yet refuse to see the links that our forefathers are the descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel?

According to American history and the Jewish archives we know that the “13 Original Colonies of America” first settled long the Atlantic Seaboard were of the House of Manasseh, the eldest son of the Viser of Egypt in the era of the “Great Exodus”, Joseph the son of Jacob. It was the Lost Tribers of the House of Israel that were the founding forefathers of the American Revolution of which George Washington, like Donald Trump was a Scottish Free Mason. 

Many Americans today associate George Washington as the general who led the fledgling American troops to a victorious climax during the American Revolutionary War. Few will remember that Washington was a firm advocate for the establishment of a strong national government, even before the Revolution was over, and the president of the Constitutional Convention in 1787. As such, he was also the first president of the United States, yet most American fail to connect Washington’s role with the American Constitution.


George Washington and the Making of the Constitution

The mural featured above was painted by Allyn Cox. It portrays U.S. President George Washington with his Masonic laying the cornerstone of the national capitol in a Masonic ceremony under the auspices of the Grand Lodge of Maryland, September 18, 1793.

So today, a new presidential candidate has swept the American elections with the electoral vote even as he failed by a small margin to get the popular vote. Trump was under the assault by most of the national news media who spent thousands of hours criticizing, demeaning, demoralizing one of America’s prime corporate builders for expressing the hearts of souls of over 50% of the American population who believed that the corruption and Roman decadence that destroyed the ancient Roman Empire now was about to destroy the “American Dream”. 

In the following Destination Yisrael’s article titled, “The Jewish Torah Roots of the American Constitution, we read the words of Prof. Paul Eidelberg”. 

Professor Paul Eidelberg – “No nation has been more profoundly influenced by the “Old Testament” than America. Many of America’s early statesmen and educators were schooled in Hebraic civilization. The second president of the United States, John Adams, a Harvard graduate, had this to say of the Jewish people: 

John Adams – “The Jews have done more to civilize men than any other nation…. They are the most glorious Nation that ever inhabited the earth. The Romans and their Empire were but a bauble in comparison to the Jews. They have given religion to three-quarters of the Globe and have influenced the affairs of Mankind more, and more happily than any other Nation, ancient or modern…..continue  

While we take a breath at what we have learned so far, we can begin to look at the role of the Creator G-d of the Universes as He guides and directs the affairs of the nations of the world. 

The Puzzle of King Cyrus and Queen Vashti 

According to the Jewish Midrash, as we have seen, the Biblical King Cyrus the Great was called Xerses which Herodotus claimed meant “warrior” but whose meaning may be closer to “hero among rulers” or “ruler over heroes”. 

The new wife of King Cyrus the Great, Vashti, after the invasion of the capital of Babylon now became the resident of King Nebuchadnezzar’s former palace. The Prophet Daniel was still around and his fame and loyalty to the King Nebuchadnezzar was legendary as the pre-imminent prime minister of Babylon, King Cyrus effectively transferred Daniel to become his new Persian prime minister now under the rule of King Cyrus the Great. 

It was during Vashti’s father, Belshazzar’s rule that the mobs of Medes and Persians attacked and overcame the Great City of Babylon. They murdered Belshazzar that night. Vashti, unknowing of her father’s death, ran to her father’s quarters. There she was kidnapped by King Darius I of Persia who was also known as Xerses (“The Monarch”), and became King Cyrus’ wife; which we doubt was by mutual consent. 

While we take a breath at what we have learned so far, we can begin to look at the role of the Creator G-d of the Universes. He guides and directs the affairs of the nations of the world, most of the time not using righteous people, but those that HaShem (“The Name”) knew would fulfill the destiny He was choosing for His chosen people and would carry the mantle that the Almighty One of Israel would place upon his shoulders. 

The question we begin to ponder again: was King Cyrus the Great the archetype of the future Donald Trump, soon to be inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States in in January 20, 2017 in the Jubilee Year of 5777. Before we answer this question, we must also recognize that the Jewish year of 5000 is the number of man and the number 777 is the number of the G-d of Israel. Here was the famous internationalist Lost Israelite ruler who married the hidden Jewess called Esther, who became the Biblical Queen Esther. 

According to the rabbinic tradition, the only peoples on Planet Earth who lived through this era were the Jewish peoples. It was a large colony of the Jewish people who stayed in their “exile” during the Babylonian and after the Persian Imperial Eras. They were ruled by their Jewish Exilarchs as royal pontiffs over the Jewish peoples throughout the era of the Sassanid Empire, and later in the Islamic era of Muhammed the Prophet and the Islamic Caliphates that followed even to our modern age with the rise of the Nation of Israel. All the identities of the other peoples in Babylon and the satraps of Persia have disappeared. Even the Persian peoples are an amalgamation of many nations. 

There were three migrations back to the devastated city of Jerusalem, one by Zerubbabel the Davidian Exilarch, one by Ezra the Scribe and one by Nehemiah also a Davidian Exilarch who was sent by King Darius II, the son of King Cyrus (Darius I the Mede) and Queen Esther, to fortify Jerusalem and complete the Second Temple (Zerubbabel’s Temple). 

The Prophet Daniel’s legendary era as the prime minister of Babylon continued to follow him to the southern palace at Shushan where he was the personal confidant as the prime minister of King Cyrus the Great (aka King Darius I the Mede). 

During this “end of the era of Babylon” the great-granddaughter of King Nebuchadnezzar II of Babylon, Vashti, the granddaughter of King Amel-Marduk who was a close friend with the Jewish Exilarch Zerubbabel and was the daughter of King Belshazzar was now to become the wife of King Cyrus the Great or Darius I the Mede who was called “Lord”. 

The Great Feast of King Ahasuerus 

It was in the first two years of King Cyrus rule’, that he held a huge feast at his palace complex for all the rulers of the satraps of Persia. According to the Midrashic account, Vashti was a savvy politician, and the ladies’ banquet that she held in parallel to Ahasuerus’ banquet represented an astute political maneuver. Since the noble women of the kingdom would be present at her banquet, she would have control of a valuable group of hostages in case a coup occurred during the king’s feast. 

While one midrash depicts Vashti as wicked, another sees her as noble, honorable and possessing wisdom. The opinion of Rabbis of Eretz Israel is positive. She is depicted as giving her husband advice, sending him three messages and pointing out how his demand was both immoral and a political mistake. 

According to “The Zionist Dream Revisited: from Herzl to Gush Emunim and Back” written by Amnon Rubinstein, we read: 

Amnon Rubinstein – “Queen Vashti, wife of King Ahasueros, refuses to obey her husband’s order to present herself at an all-male party he is hosting, at which a profusion of alcohol was being served, in order to show off her beauty. 

The king’s advisors convince him that the queen’s disobedience will set a bad example for the women of the empire, and that he must therefore get rid of her. Ahasueros reluctantly agrees, but he soon regrets his decision. 

To console him, his chief courtiers persuade him to gather together the most attractive maidens of his empire and to choose Vashti’s replacement from among them. In popular renditions of the story of Esther, the process is almost invariably depicted as a beauty pageant in which attractive women competed to become part of the king’s harem, although the text of the novella is ambiguous about the process by which the massive roundup of thousands of beautiful women from the vast borders of the Persian empire took place. Among them is Esther, a young woman whose deceased parents were descended from Judean exiles.”

Once again the parallels of Donald Trump and King Cyrus the Great and their attitude concerning women can be compared in a more refined identity.

Age and the Imperial Rules of Cyrus and Trump 

Donald Trump was 70 years old when he won the electoral college vote that will give him access to the “keys to the kingdom” of the United States of America upon his inauguration on January 20, 2016. He will be the oldest president to have this distinction. 

King Darius I the Mede was 62 years old when he toppled the mighty city of Babylon and received the kingship over the regions of Babylon and Persia. Donald Trump like King Cyrus the Great (Darius I the Mede) quickly within just days after winning the electoral college vote began the formation of his governmental advisors to assist him in the formation of his cabinet to advise him on his rule over the vast continent of North America called the United States of America. 

And so it “pleased Donald Trump” when his political campaigning was now over so he could begin the appointments of his inner circle of advisors and make preparation to redefine the destiny of America with the slogan, “America will be Great again!” and “America will be Free again!”: 

Daniel 6:1 – “So it pleased Darius to appoint over the kingdom one hundred and twenty satraps to be throughout the kingdom, and over them three viziers, of whom Daniel was one – to whom these satraps would give advice, so that the king would suffer no harm. Then this Daniel oversaw the viziers and satraps, because of the extraordinary spirt in him; and the king thought to appoint him over the kingdom. 

The Comparison of the Tests of Governance of Cyrus and Donald 

Yet immediately after the kingdom was set up, certain of the viziers and satraps “sought to find libel” against Daniel but “they could find neither fault nor corruption, because he was faithful and nor could error or corruption be found in him.


Daniel in the Lion’s Den

So Darius I and Donald can now be compared as rulers over vast imperial realms. Will we find that it will be Donald Trump who will have to prove to the G-d of Israel that even with his “extraordinary spirit within him” he too will be tested for his faithfulness to the One G-d of Israel? 

For almost a year in campaigning and in national debates, the vigorous speeches and debates between the candidates quickly thrust this politically inexperienced building mogul into the “lion’s den experience” of American politics. 

Understand, Donald Trump is not Daniel, but the endemic and fury of the political advisors he surrounds himself may force him to make political and also sacred cognitive decisions which he will in turn soon regret. 

So like King Darius I, it was the satraps of Persia who sought to eliminate the coveted position to always have the ear of the Persian monarch, when they turned against Daniel the Prime Minister who would daily turn his face to Jerusalem and pray to the G-d of Israel in supplication to the “Almighty One of Israel” instead of King Cyrus when Persian satraps stated to King Cyrus: 

Daniel 6:13-14 – “Did you not inscribe, a prohibition that any person who would make a request of any god or person for thirty days, other than you, O king, would be thrown into the lion’s pit? The king replied and said, “The matter is true, according to the law of Media and Persia, which shall never lapse.” 

Then they exclaimed and said before the king, That Daniel, who is one of the people of the exile of Judah, has not paid any attention to you, O king, and to the prohibition that you have inscribed. Three times a day he prays his prayer! 

For the rest of the day, King Darius I was in anguish and torment. He tried every avenue to save the life of his honored prime minister, but by evening, he relented to the irrevocable law of the Medes and the Persians and Daniel was cast into the lion’s den. Yet before that fateful moment, King Cyrus (aka Darius I the Mede) began his first mental ascension of spiritual consciousness to the Absolute Ruler of the Universe when he stated to Daniel: 

Daniel 6:17 – “May your G-d, Whom you serve continually, save you!” A stone was brought and was placed over the opening to the pit, and the king sealed it with his signet ring and with the signet rings of his nobles, who that his will regarding Daniel could not be changed.” 

The king’s mind was in turmoil and in distress. He could not sleep, no table for food was brought to him, and “his sleep wandered from him.” Before the break of dawn, the king rushed to the lion’s pit, and when near he cried out in sadness and grief to Daniel: 

Daniel 6:21 – “Daniel, servant of the living G-d! Was your G-d, Whom you serve continually, able to save you from the lions?…Then Daniel stated, may the king live forever! My G-d sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, and they did not wound me, because merit was found for me before Him. Also before you, O king, I have done no harm.” 

Daniel was raised out of the lion’s den and quickly inspected for no wound was found. In turn, the satraps who had slandered the name and reputation of Daniel in “Lashan “HaRah or “Evil Tongue”, were thrown into the pit of lions and as the sacred text concludes: 

Daniel 6:25 – “The king gave the command and they brought those men who had slandered Daniel, and they threw them into the lion’s pit, them, their children, and their wives. They had not reached the floor of the pit when the lions overpowered them and crushed all their bones.” 

So now, with the acceptance of winning the nomination as the 45th president of the United States, the only nation that claims, “In G-d we Trust”, the new President Donald Trump has now set the standards of honesty, integrity and righteousness as he did during his campaign when railed against those rulers in America who oppressed and abused the masses of the people endemic in the corruption of Washington D.C Inc. and the monetary Rothschild oppressors of the Federal Reserve. 

Yes, Donald Trump has the potential of making suits and political chaos against those who fought against him or because of his own hubris of his role as always being the one in charge, that he could make decisions that will harm those that are close to him like King Darius I the Mede (aka King Cyrus the Great) did early in his Persian kingship to the Prime Minister, the Prophet Daniel. When the G-d of Israel forced King Cyrus to stand and be counted, Donald may like King Cyrus will have the opportunity to rise to the challenge as an advocate of the righteousness of G-d’s divine purpose. 

Isaiah 55:4 – “Behold, I have given him (Cyrus and Donald) for a witness to the peoples, a prince and commander to the peoples.” 

The Political Future of President Donald Trump 

The rabbis in Israel have weighed in on the personal and political future of President-elect Donald Trump as written in the Breaking Israel News on November9, 2016, the day after the presidential election.

The Gematria of Donald Trump’s Name 

Breaking Israel News – “Donald Trump’s upset victory in the presidential race over Hillary Clinton, who was heavily favored in virtually all the pre-election polls, seemed to defy the laws of nature, reason and sense. Several rabbis have an explanation, however: it was, quite simply, the will of God.

Rabbi Yosef Berger. (Courtesy David’s Tomb) 

“As the rabbi who oversees the final resting place of King David on Mount Zion, Rabbi Yosef Berger is intimately connected to the spirituality of kingship. For him it was clear what tipped the scales in favor of the Republican underdog. 

“I have known for months that Donald Trump would win the elections…The gematria (numerology) of his name is Moshiach (Messiah). He is connected to the Messianic process which is happening right now. 

When he promised to move the American Embassy to Jerusalem, he attached himself to the power of Moshiach, which gave him the boost he needed. If you separate from Jerusalem, disaster will follow. 

“When taking the gematria into account, it was clear that Trump had a spiritual edge. As Rabbi Berger pointed out, the Hebrew gematria for Donald Trump in Hebrew (דונלד טראמפ) is 424, which is equal to the gematria of “Messiah for the House of David” (משיח בן דוד). 

The Ben Ish Chai, an authority on Jewish law and master kabbalist who lived in Baghdad 150 years ago, interpreted the number 212 as a difficult time for Israel before the Final Redemption. Trump’s gematria is twice that, signifying an ongoing Messiah process. 

Rabbi Berger was clear on how this election fit into the process of Messiah. “As the spiritual descendant of the Biblical nation of Edom, America has a very important role to play in the Messiah. But in order to be suited for that role, America had to be humbled,” Rabbi Berger stated. 
Rabbi Berger – “In order to establish his kingdom, God had to create confusion, a situation in which the best plans laid by the most powerful people, comes to nothing.” 
The rabbi quoted the well-known proverb: 

Proverb’s 16:9 – “A man’s heart deviseth his way; but Hashem directeth his steps. 

Rabbi Berger, rabbi of the Tomb of King David stated the following,

Rabbi Berger – “This outsider, whose own party rejected him, despised by the media, won despite what the experts predicted.”


 Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the nascent Sanhedrin

Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the nascent Sanhedrin 

“As spokesman for the nascent Sanhedrin, Rabbi Hillel Weiss, also saw God’s interest in Israel as part of the election. He said that Trump’s victory was, in part, a reaction to President Barack Obama’s Israel policies.

“Obama made himself a very visible part of the campaign. It is clear that Hashem (God) was part of the political process, using it to punish President Obama and those who were working to harm Israel;” Rabbi Weiss told Breaking Israel News. 

“By allowing Iran to establish a nuclear program which is clearly not for peaceful purposes, by standing aside and allowing the UN to make resolutions to harm Israel, Obama established himself as an enemy of Israel. 

“All of the academics and the media, who create their own world with evil words, they worked against Trump,” continued Rabbi Weiss. “They tried to create a man-made reality in which Trump could not win. In the end, it did not work. Hashem is moving us towards a greater Jerusalem, and anyone who goes against that, is destined to fail. 

“Trump’s slim margin of triumph and the fact that throughout the hotly contested campaign, Clinton consistently led in most pre-election polls made his victory even more stunning. 

“At one point, Clinton led with a double digit advantage of up to 17 points. A CNN poll in June predicted a Clinton landslide victory by 24 percent. Indeed, up until the day before the elections, major polls were giving the Democratic candidate a five percent edge. Though Trump won the electoral college by a wide margin (279 as compared to Clinton’s 218), the popular vote told a very different story, with Clinton actually winning by one percent. 

“In an election of such import, the margin was tiny. With the future of a world superpower in the balance, it was clear that such an upset victory, flying in the face of conventional politics, media predictions, and the expectations of international leaders, not to mention many Americans, was entirely due to an outside influence. 

“Here we have a New York billionaire who is portrayed as a ruthless mogul who has shaken the Republican and the Democratic parties to the core. He has over the years has surrounded his business corporate life with Jewish employees and now is preparing to topple the impregnable Washington D.C. corporate and political life. 

The Potential Role of Donald Trump as the President of the United States in the Final Redemption and Restoration of the House of Israel and Judah 

During the past centuries, each of these Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel have been introduced to the Jewish Prince of David, and messiah of his era, Yehoshua HaNotzri (Jesus the Nazarene). They were given first the pristine truths of rabbinic Judaism as interpreted by Hillel the Great. 

This was then put into a divine mission with the sole purpose of finding and laying the pathway for the redemption of the Lost Tribes of Israel through the teachings of the Jewish Rabbi Yehoshua ben Yosef (Rabbi Jesus the son of Joseph). It was he, who was manifested as the divine emanation of HaShem’s messiah. It was he who would instill the pathway of Torah enlightenment for all generations. 

The Lost Tribes were later introduced to the corrupted view of “The Jewish Nazarene” who was truly a Prince of David and also an Orthodox Jewish rabbi who lived his life above and beyond the letter of Torah Law. By the 4th century CE, the teachings of this halakhic observing rabbi was amalgamated first by the Apostate Gnostic Roman Catholic Christian Church. 

They became the participants of the great apostasy of the Christian faith as the Torah commands given to the Children of Israel on the mount called Sinai were stripped of their Hebrew philosophical roots and placed upon the Hellenistic Greco-Roman roots. It was they who would become one of the greatest adversaries of the Jewish people for the next two millenniums. 

Finally, it was the Lost Tribes of Israel who were introduced to the 17th century corruption of Jewish Messianism and Mysticism by the Kabbalist Rabbi, turned Anti-Torah Sabbatian, Shabbatai Tzevi. They later became the followers, as British and Scottish Freemasons of the century later coalition between Islamic Dolmeh Qabala trained Jewish Rabbi Jacob Frank, the Jewish Jesuit founder of the Bavarian Order of the Illuminati, Adam Weishaupt, and the Jewish founder of the European Banking Economic Order,

 Ancestral Home of Tamar Tephi, the daughter of King Zedekiah

The Ancestral Home of Tamar Tephi, the daughter of King Zedekiah and her husband the Scythian Judahite Heremon ben Milesius 

In spite of the theological corruptions, the European based former Scythians, Cimmerian-Gauls, Anglo-Saxon Israelites with many other “hidden identities”, will someday reemerge with their new identity as the prophetic House of Ephraim or more specifically, the House of Joseph. They will be prophetically drawn back into imperial Messianic One World Order with their tribal cousins, the Jewish people, under the rule of the future King Messiah of the House of King David ruling as the Commonwealth of Israel.

It has been a long journey for the Lost Tribes of the House of Israel and that journey is about over. In arrogance Israel apostatized against the G-d of Israel and wanted to be self-fulfilled and independent. In spite of tribal rivalries and jealousies, they rejected the literal word of the Almighty One of Israel that their covenant was to keep all the commands of the Torah, and worship together with their entire family of Israel at the temple in Jerusalem. 

They, the Lost Ten Tribes turned their backs against Judah because of the oppression of the last days of Solomon and the oppressive arrogance his son, King Rehoboam. They rejected the divine “word of the L-rd” and refused to worship in the Holy Temple and ally themselves with Judah as the Mechoqeck, the Lawgiver of the Almighty One on this planet earth. The unity of Israel was fragmented and soon both houses of Israel were in exile. 

When Donald Trump steps forward in January 20, 2017, at his inauguration as the President of the United States, here are some foundational facts that his life may in the future change the matrix of the “era of the messiah” as he chooses to accept the mandate of the heavenly court of HaShem to be a participant of the messianic process of King Messiah: 

President elect Donald Trump ancestors are blood-lined Irish and as such were part of Tribes of Simeon, Dan and Levi. He is, like the Lost Ten Tribes of the House will be what the G-d of Israel stated about His “chosen” Northern Kingdom of Israel, “You are My Battle Axe.” 

In their apostasy, these Irish leaders became the Gnostic Illuminati. 

Like America’ s founding forefathers, Donald Trump has a higher state of spiritual consciousness and may be the international political leader to be the prime mover for the future messianic consciousness and spiritual enlightenment. He has the capacity to learn from the Divine and learn “greatly”. 

Donald Trump has the capacity, like King Cyrus the Great to listen and believe wrongly the testimony of his advisors and then ruthlessly in the pathway of his convictions, like Cyrus did of old throw the Prime Minister and the Prophet Daniel into the lion’s den. 

President Donald Trump may have to rectify the edict that was used to potentially destroy the revered Daniel the Prophet, the revered prime minister of both Babylon and Persia and now with an elevated state of consciousness, accept that he is part of G-d final vortex of redeeming power.   

President Donald Trump like King Cyrus will be known to be compassionate with allowing the Jewish people to return to the land of their forefathers in aliyah. It was the Jewish people who failed in part for loving the land of Persia where they could share in the wealth of the ancient Persian Empire. 

The Jews in the American Diaspora of Reform and Conservative Judaism persuasion may be the representative of the Jews and the Exilarchs in Baghdad who refused to return to Jerusalem and the future Judea to rebuild the Temple of Zerubbabel. 

The fate of the Jewish people in the Diaspora will be rectified before the Divine Court by the Defense Attorney of the heavenly court; “Metatron, the Angel of the Divine Presence who will soon be Melekh HaMaschiach (King Messiah)”. 

Donald Trump could be the human ruler who will be called upon by the Creator of the Universe to emancipate the rest of the Jews living all over Planet Earth of which over 10 million are in the United States alone. 

The Jews in the Diaspora may eventually be compelled, during adverse political deterioration in America to return to the land of their forefathers or in adverse global catastrophic adverse conditions such as a near fly-by of Nibiru, the nemesis and the twin dark binary star that may bring great destruction upon Planet Earth. 

Donald Trump like King Cyrus has the capacity to be compassionate and like HaShem, the one G-d of Israel will give mercy to those that need it. 

It may be President Donald Trump’s mandate to provide the political and geo-political landscape to “Emancipate the Jews” from their American Diaspora so they can return in mass to the Land of Israel, their ancestral homeland in the former Kingdom of Judah. 

Donald Trump has allied his fate with the Modern State of Israel with the acceptance that Jerusalem is the Eternal capital of the Nation of Israel inaugurated at the mount called Sinai. 

Donald Trump has an affinity for the “Jewish brainpower” and his corporate world is strongly imbedded with Jewish people running his corporate business life. 

President Donald Trump appears to be preparing for the planetary redemption of both the “return of the Jews” to the future “Greater Israel” but also upwards to 2-3 billion of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel. These also are destined to be “taken from the lands of their dwelling” and returned to the “land of their forefathers” and there as Klal Yisrael (“All 12-Tribed Israel”) will be G-d’s people and HaShem will be their G-d.

We are standing in the historical Messianic Era today which we may soon literally be transported to a higher 4th dimensional consciousness, as we await to become part of the ingathering of the exiles. 

The Final Redemption and Restoration of the House of Israel and Judah 

Is it not fascinating that some Lost Tribers in certain Protestant Churches call themselves “Spiritual Israelites” which in fact they are not. They are still spiritually babes in not realizing that as Spiritual Israelites, they are seeking to replace the covenanted Jews of the House of Judah. 

Instead they are actually “Literal Israelites” whose forefathers rejected the covenanted life as given on the Mount called Sinai, refused to worship in the House of G-d called Solomon’s Temple, refused to accept the priests designated as their spiritual advisors in Jerusalem, and the Mechoqeck, the Jewish rabbanim or the Pharisees of Beit Hillel to be their Torah guided judiciary and rebelled in defiance to the G-d of Israel. 

These Lost Israelites were exiled, and lost their spiritually elevated lifestyle. Over the centuries they wandered back to Rome (Edom), and there wallowed in paganism and idolatry as Roman Christians for almost two thousand years.” 

So history does attest that the Northern Ten Tribes that included the Royal Scythians did choose to separate themselves from their Jewish brothers from the Southern Kingdom of Judah. They went the way of apostasy into Baal worship. 

So today, most of the influence and the adherences of Roman and Protestant Christianity are located in the regions where the Lost Ten Tribes and their world colonization were located 2,300 years ago. This includes the Americas and the regions of Northern Europe, Southern Russia and the Balkans plus the countries around the world in which the Lost Ten Tribes have colonized around the globe.
