Ethiopia (Bible-period Africa) is mentioned so many times in the Bible that one would presume that its extensive political, cultural and economic significance in the Biblical period was common knowledge.

Below, find a few examples of the recognition given to Africa in the ancient times:

  1. We can try to ignore it all we wnt but racism is alive & well. We still r slaves to dem but n God’s eyes, we r his ppl. & he show’s great love toward us some just dnt no how to recieve it because da still have a slavery mindset

  2. We think we are suposeto have straight hair talk & walk like someone else when all along we are who we are &who we are God’s children who were made in his own image. thats right in His likeness

  3. Concerning the Library in Alexandria and other secular meeting grounds…those book are just books. Just as any other book. The one thing I learned about reading is, you can compare it to a buffet. You may be able to see the whole buffet, but surely you can’t eat everything that is set before you, therefore you only eat what you know you can handle. The truth is, ALL BOOKS UPON THIS EARTH have been manipulated and distorted. We are currently living in a time when the common trend is EVERYONE GET ALONG, but this is something that is of new origin. The races have always stuck to one another’s own and the only reason everyone wants to get along now is because we all can benefit from one another, but the fact still remains that there was this certain groug that TYRANNIZED and CHEATED everyone. This group is responsible for the library in Alexandria and the ancient Egyptians being painted white. This same group has put a lieing dog into authority, named Zahi Hawass, the current Egyptologist that runs the CURRENT DISTORTION AND DESTRUCTION of ANCIENT BLACK CIVILIZATIONS. I am not pointing the finger at anyone, but the truth must be told and to BE HONEST WITH YOU….THIS CERTAIN GROUP WOULD RATHER I DIE THAN TO KNOW THE TRUTH! I will say one other thing though…no matter how much this group has tried to destroy MY PEOPLE, with their slavetrade, giving us a new language and new names…completely DESTROYING MY HERITAGE…THEY STILL NEVER FACTOR IN THE HEAVENS INTO THEIR EQUATION…like…I know I can read the Bible, Koran, Torah, Tanak and any other books that are here upon this earth. If you really want to know the TRUTH then the TRUTH ONLY COMES FROM ABOVE. NO ONE CAN GET IN THE WAY OF THE HEAVENS WHEN THEY HAVE TO relay a message from the MOST HIGH TO MANKIND…no book can suffice. No preacher or teacher can suffice. If you really want to know the truth and what is really going on in this world then what did the MESSIAH PROMISE? Ye shall know the TRUTH and the TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE….I AM FREE PEOPLE AND HIS NAME IS NOT JESUS CHRIST, NOR JESUS THE CHRIST. JESUS could not have been his name because if he spoke HEBREW, ARAMAIC or GREEK…neither has A LETTER J in its alphabet. Therefore THEY NEVER CALLED HIM (J)esus…this name is recently new. His name is YESHUA HA MASHIOK…YESHUA=jesus….HA=the….MASHIOK=the annointed….DOES ANYONE SPEAK MY LANGUAGE because THIS IS WHAT THE HEAVENS HAS REVEALED TO ME? What is man, but a VAPOR? No matter what these people do to distort the TRUTH….YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE….IT SURE FEELS GOOD TO BE FREE…I HOPE YOU JOIN ME SOON!

    1. Highly uplifting! Its is hardening to my heart to know that people of our color, not only just race but color, do not recognize the original black man as the most biologically dominant being on earth. With that being said the original people had to be of the same origin. That fact there is the reason we are emasculated, frowned upon, and separated to fulfill the enemy’s rage of jealousy. God, the God I know, Yah, not of white decent, will become more powerful to us as a nation of black people when and only when we learn that the reason we are in this situation is because of the first rebellion of Satan to attain the power and respect that Yah had amongst his angels.

    2. i concur, dameon…it also has been gvn on2 me, th journey to seek God’s truth among God’s creatn…there, God has delivered on2 me, “nuggets of truths” from a multitude of seemngly ndepndnt resources…God is revealng an image thru ths procss…i blieve ths procss shall bring clarity, where there has been only confusion…whtevr God says is of significance, is of significance….God has nevr evr needd human beings to defend God-& still does not…all is set & done, it is only our finite xperionly, whch seems to hv a past, present& future, tht is yet to b reveald…may G.O.D.; Th Generatng Omni-potnt-scient-prsnt Designr bless us all…

    3. Thank you! I am greatful to hear and see the truth the light and the way.The true title / name is here and for ever thee is you and me I am recognizing you in spirit and truth keep on keeping on the thought was good.

    1. I think its the new heaven for whites thats why they are slaughtering africans for the land and other resources. Remember if the whites murder the africans and create new hybrid races, there would be less originals staking claims on the land. And the new hybrids will finish the job because the hybrids will not relate to the originals. Thats why there are so many confused hybrids in north america claiming to be everything but black even when they cant pass for anything but black.

    2. It is still paradise ,right here on earth .It has been tainted with hate , theft ,deceit ,and death ,but God will provide all that is needed to restore it.

  4. the fake “white” image of christ story was created” in the first concil of nicea in 325AD” by constintine and pope julian the second!King Ezana from Ethiopia, is the first christain emperor of the world, 200 years, long before constantine was on the scene!Yashua Christmas was on born Jan 6 in a cave in Ethiopia!He was an “revolutionist”.He was not a messiah but was spiritualy enlighten being because of “meditation”. constantine distorted the cross story from “OSIRUS” and the SUN birth of december 25 from HORUS! ISIS, has the first virgin birth story of the world, not mary! The Kemetic Book Of Dead predates the king james bible 1611ad, the koran 640ad, torah 250bc!!! The reason i know these things cause my family went to Sai(now known by Egypt) , Kush( now known as Ethiopia), Canaan( now known as Israel) ISIS-AMENRA-ELOHIM= ISRAEL!!!!!!!! people need to travel and stop reading these european versions of holy bible, torah ,and korans!!!!! Yashua ,Buddha, Horus,Krishna and even AMEN are representations of the “SUN” not son. A ressurrected Penis and a Vagina(the WOMB) can bring forth LIFE. In the Beginning there was Man, Woman, and Child and today we go by Father, Son, Holy spirit. The christian missionaries didn’t have respect for the woman, so they replaced the woman with holy spirit!!!!!believe me or not!God is not yor creator !!!! Man and Woman are the creators!!!!The only God spiritual connection or Realm within you is through MEDITATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. how do th finite create…?
      i hv only evr xperiencd reproductn, nventns, manufracturng & reformng as a human being…my undrstndng of th term “creatn” is producng very thing from no-thng…whn has any human being done tht…?
      terri a.

  5. All is vanity as the book of Ecclesiastes begins..we should not be conformed bt be transformed. Jesus tought on mountain,”blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.” let’s hv a heart like that of a child so us when Jesus will come back we shall go with Him and all kind of questions, we I’ll be free to ask.. let us not get confused by satan. Amen and be blessed.
