Moses was born in Africa, raised by Africans, trained in African wisdom, and was mistaken for a descendant of Ham… and yet he’s still depicted as a bearded white man in the vast majority of pictures that we see. Unfortunately, this huge white lie has prevailed for centuries. But it’s not the fault of the Bible. It’s the fault of those of those us that choose not to read the Bible close enough to see that we’ve been lied to. Click the following link to see what I mean:
Images of Deception
The Lies We’ve Been Told
While many people will admit that they know we’re being lied to about the ethnicity of the Hebrew people, those same people are content with letting the lies continue to deceive new generations of believers. Here are just some of the things we now know to be false:
Hebrews are white.
The Bible is the white man’s religion.
Egyptians weren’t black.
70 Europeans went into Africa and 1,000,000 Europeans came out.
British and Americans are true Israel.
These are blatant lies that have been pushed by Gentiles that have been deceived by the false teachings of British-Israelism. These lies are still pushed in order to represent a Eurocentric view of scripture, when in reality, the Bible is Afrocentric. Let’s start by setting the scene.
Egypt (Mizraim) Was An African Empire
Let’s start with the basic facts that we know and believe based on both geography and the Bible. Moses was born and raised in Egypt. Egyptians descend from Ham, as do Ethiopians, Cushites, Sudanese, and most other African nations. Even though this fact is accepted by theologians, we are still told by many white conservative Christians that “the Egyptians weren’t black.” Conservative Christians intentionally cast white actors in African and Arab roles in order to continue pushing their agenda of deception. This is what we call INTELLECTUAL DISHONESTY… or WILLFUL IGNORANCE.
Egyptians descended from Ham.
Egyptians depicted themselves as black people.
Egypt is located in Africa.
Egypt is called “The Land of Ham” in the Bible.
These are Biblical truths that believers have no choice but to agree on. Intellectual dishonesty or just the desire to spread deception are the only possible explanations for continuing to teach that people living in Africa and mixing with Africans weren’t black… especially after many conservative Christians will freely admit that black Africans originated with Ham.
“Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.” – Psalms 105:23
The Map above shows how much territory the children of Ham settled after people began to spread out across the earth. In the area of Babel we notice that it is completely red. That’s because Nimrod, a Cushite descendant of Ham, built the area. In fact, we see that huge portions of areas important to the Bible were founded by Hamites.
The Origin of Israel
Now that we’ve established that Egypt was and is located in Africa (not The Middle East), let’s look at what God said to Jacob (Israel):
“And he said, I am God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation:” – Genesis 46:3
God’s specific instructions to Jacob (Israel) was to go to Egypt, which is in Africa, and it is in Africa that God will turn Israel into a great nation. Another detail that many people miss is that Jacob was called out of Canaan, which was located in Arabia, but was founded by an African (Genesis 46:31). Canaan was the son of Ham that was cursed. It is in Canaan that Judah and his brothers find their wives, because there were no other Israelites for them to marry. From there, we fast forward to another important Biblical fact that backs the fact that the first Israelites married women from a Hamite line:
“All the souls that came with Jacob into Egypt, which came out of his loins, besides Jacob’s sons’ wives, all the souls were threescore and six; And the sons of Joseph, which were born him in Egypt, were two souls: all the souls of the house of Jacob, which came into Egypt, were threescore and ten.” – Genesis 46:26-27
For those not familiar with units of counting in the past, a “score” equals 20.
Threescore = 60
Ten = 10
60 + 10 = 70
The Bible tells us that Judah took Canaanite women (Tamar and the daughter of Shuah) for himself and his sons, which means that from the very beginning, the lineage of Judah had African blood in it. These 70 Israelites that went into Africa began having more children until they turned into a nation large enough to be a threat to Pharoah, which is where the story of Moses begins. Anyone looking at the scriptures with a critical eye can’t help but notice that God does not instruct anyone to go to Europe on any occasion, nor does he call any of his chosen people out of any European nations. Once again, these are the facts of the Bible.
Moses Is An African / Egyptian Name
“And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.” – Exodus 2:10
As we can see, it is the daughter of Pharaoh that gave Moses his name, and it is his African name that has stuck throughout history. Another point to note is that even though his mother was the one that raised, him, she never named him, even though the story says, “and the child grew”. While we aren’t given an exact age, it does appear that Moses didn’t have an officially recorded name until after he was no longer being nursed by his mother Jochebed.
