Africa, “Christianity”, rebellion, and Daniel 7:25.
The prophet Daniel, speaking of powers that will rule over God’s people and the world says this regarding a ruler or power, which represents a principality, and a principality is the spirit that drives or resides behind the character of a nation, or group of nations.
He will speak words against the Most High and try to exhaust the holy ones of the Most High. He will attempt to alter the seasons and the law; and [the holy ones] will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time. (Daniel 7:25 CJB)
The fourth commandment is this:
“Remember the day, Shabbat, to set it apart for God. You have six days to labour and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Shabbat for ADONAI your God. On it, you are not to do any kind of work—not you, your son or your daughter, not your male or female slave, not your livestock, and not the foreigner staying with you inside the gates to your property. For in six days, ADONAI made heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them; but on the SEVENTH day he rested. This is why ADONAI blessed the day, Shabbat, and separated it for himself. (Exodus 20:8-11 CJB)
CAPITALS emphasis mine. Shabbat means Sabbath or seventh day.
On March 7, 321, however, Roman Emperor Constantine I issued a civil decree making Sunday a day of rest from labour/work, stating:
“All judges and city people and the craftsmen shall rest upon the venerable day of the sun. Country people, however, may freely attend to the cultivation of the fields, because it frequently happens that no other days are better adapted for planting the grain in the furrows or the vines in trenches. So that the advantage given by heavenly providence may not for the occasion of a short time perish.”
The venerable day of the sun, means to venerate, worship or respect the sun on a that day, and of course Sunday has throughout history been a day which Pagans have chose to worship created things. Note this scripture again from God’s law:
“Therefore, watch out for yourselves! Since you did not see a shape of any kind on the day ADONAI spoke to you in Horev from the fire, do not become corrupt and make yourselves a carved image having the shape of any figure—not a representation of a human being, male or female, or a representation of any animal on earth, or a representation of any bird that flies in the air, or a representation of anything that creeps along on the ground, or a representation of any fish in the water below the shoreline. **For the same reason, do not look up at the sky, at the sun, moon, stars and everything in the sky, and be drawn away to worship and serve them; ADONAI your God has allotted these to all the peoples under the entire sky.** (Deuteronomy 4:15-19)
** Starred emphasis mine **
“Christians” are told not to worship created things (Romans 1:25, Galatians 4:8-11), as the Jews were also exhorted to avoid, yet in traditional “Christianity” we have it explained to us that Sunday is our day of rest and worship. But, is rest and worship on Sunday the commandment God gave us? Let’s look at the scriptures people use to justify this:
On Motza’ei-Shabbat (after the Sabbath/on the first day of the week), when we were gathered to break bread, Sha’ul addressed them. Since he was going to leave the next day, he kept talking until midnight. (Acts 20:7 CJB)
Every week, on Motza’ei-Shabbat (after the Sabbath/on the first day of the week), each of you should set some money aside, according to his resources, and save it up; so that when I come I won’t have to do fundraising. (1 Corinthians 16:2 CJB)
Notes in parentheses () mine. Now consider, are these scriptures giving us COMMANDMENTS, or are they examples where because of certain situations or needs people met on the first day of the week?
Moving from the historical, to the near present. In 1998 The International Standards Organisation (ISO) published ISO 8601 to standardise date and time related data. As part of this standardisation, Sunday became the seventh day of the week.
What you should be seeing here is a changing and drift away from what God commanded, to these man made rules. BEWARE, sin is like an iceberg, you see only the tip, but you can’t see what lies beneath the surface! Yahshua (“Jesus”) said:
‘These people honour me with their lips,
but their hearts are far away from me.
Their worship of me is useless,
because they teach man-made rules as if they were doctrines.’
“You depart from God’s command and hold onto human tradition. Indeed,” he said to them, “you have made a fine art of departing from God’s command in order to keep your tradition! (Mark 7:6-8)
Today “The Church” teaches us all kinds of things that shut out the righteousness, justice and peace that God desires for mankind, this is on top of the atrocities committed in the past in the name of Jesus Christ. People must learn not to follow the ways of European Christians, who have brought death and destruction to Africa and many parts of the world with their doctrines of White Supremacy. Look, they have made God in their own image, and we see murderous, rapacious greed masking itself as holy empire, as British empire, as European dominance, as American empire, we see homosexual priests and priests that abuse children; these things are not what the faith we believe in is supposed to be about, these things have no part at all in our faith.
The thief comes only in order to steal, kill and destroy; I have come so that they may have life, life in its fullest measure. (John 10:10 CJB)
Compare that with what European teaching has done for Africa? Do you have life in full measure? A full understanding of God’s purpose for your life and your standing among nations, or do you feel oppressed and exploited, like America and Europe are lands of promise that you want to flee there because Africa is hell? Who made Africa hell and who perpetuates the demeaning of a race because of the colour of a people’s skin, Africans or Europeans?
Therefore know this, that European teaching and example has also brought reproach to the Word of God, and sadly they will not rebuke their own to the extent that is needed to ensure repentance and justice is ever satisfied. God’s justice is supposed to be the light of the world, not something that man can improve on, yet after 2000 years or more of man’s tampering with God’s commandments by preferring his own we see the world in no better condition, and we see tyranny and iniquity ever reaching into our lives with subtle and even brutal force.
In truth Sunday keeping is a mark of apostasy and rebellion against God’s commandments, where we take our lead from the teachings and doctrines of men, rather than our Lord Messiah Yahshua. Really, if Messiah Yahshua is our only sovereign and Lord (Jude 4), why do we take commandments from Roman Emperor Constantine and The Pope? Remember the Romans were the force that destroyed Israel, demolished the temple, how is it suddenly that they are creating the “Universal Church”. When we empty the Word of God of its power and follow the teachings of men, we become a laughingstock and mockery to the people around us.
Do you pray for miracles and see nothing happen? Does your pastor take your tithe and promise you blessings that never materialise? Is church more a lifestyle routine, rather than a lifestyle that brings change? Yahshua said “by their fruit you will know them” (Matthew 7:15-27). If you are not seeing change, even bitter change, you are in the wrong place. Follow God’s commands and reject people who work lawlessness through their rejections of God’s commandments in favour of their own rules!
May God bless you as you keep his word wholeheartedly. Shalom.
From back in 2019, Bill Gates family planning with African billionaires, he wants to tell Africans not to have “too many” children.
The second richest man on earth doesn’t realise that the poor in Africa are suffering because of billionaire capitalist exploiters like him and his corporation and the other people who oppress the poor, taking land, Or supporting those that do so, greedily taking over resources, not paying tax, dumping good food that could feed people to boost the price in foreign markets, or throwing ford away because it is past its “sell by” date.
Instead of fighting injustice so that the poor can eat, this man wants to tell the exploited not to reproduce. This will be a first step to getting rid of the poor altogether and replacing them with machines or cyborgs I would suggest, after the poor are torn from their land and made to work as wage slaves in cities!
But hey, I know math, instead of telling Africans to reduce their reproduction rates, how about we flip the script and tell Americans and Europeans to stop having as many children instead, seeing as in terms of using the earth’s resources, they use much more than they need and create the waste that is chocking the planet. The excess food and other resources that they then would not be using can be redistributed to Africans. Anyone with me?
Some people are so blind to their ignorance, yet in the eyes of many in this world they are seen as great people. If a blind man leads a blind man they will both fall into a pit!
Here is a link to an article containing more information.
I was going to write an article on British Israel theology, getting to grips with the scriptures, but there is already an excellent article, The Legend Of British-Israel, written by C.T. Dimont, D.D. Principal of Salisbury Theological College Chancellor and Canon of Salisbury Cathedral (1933). This article goes into some depth to describe some of the, to be frank, ludicrous claims of British Israelism. British Israelism assets its case for acceptance by twisting scriptures from their context, using scriptures from an extended cannon which it rejects except when that cannon adds weight to its crazed doctrine, the use of non-scriptural resources – even the dimensions of Egyptian pyramids and pagan legends, right up to claiming the rights to to the British people to conquer the whole earth and use military force as the agent of God’s rule of the earth.
If ever there was a root for militant, nationalistic megalomania, Christian Identity, and white supremacy, this doctrine is what provides it to the United Kingdom (and those who falsely claim to be from the tribe of Manasseh in the USA), and I would say has already been at work as the basis for many of Britain’s exploits abroad, in terms of colonialism and neo-colonialism, and it provides the quite British sense of never having the need to apologise AND repent for acts like The Trans Atlantic Slave Trade, genocide and mass murder of Africans, Native American Indians, Indians and more. Furthermore the ongoing economic, financial and material resource exploitation that is occurring as a kind of neo-colonialism, is still linked into this notion of British superiority, built on the puffed up pride of a nation that has its hopes built on the unreal.
All this was sprang up from the initial edict by Pope Nicholas V in 1452 with Dum Diversas, a “Papal Bull” that gave European kings the assumed authority from God to invade other lands and subdue, even subject to perpetual servitude, those people who did not accept the doctrine of Christ.
In the future, Britain with it’s close links to America and Israel will likely form part of the greatest evil to ever befall the planet, aiding and giving birth to the rise of the Anti-Messiah (Anti-Christ), built off of the back of a rejection of the truth of the scriptures, and an assertion that God has given promises to one nation, not just to occupy a small piece of land in the Middle East, Israel, but the right to establish a perpetual dominion throughout the whole earth by force.
The simple fact you have to know is the British are not descended from “The Lost Ten Tribes of Israel”, the British are not Semitic, they are not descended from Shem but from Japheth (note Genesis 10:1-5). Here is something from “The Table of Nations”, everybody on earth comes from one of Noah’s sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth. The portion of Genesis I quote below speaks specifically of Japheth’s sons:
Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood. The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah. And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. 5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations. (Ge 10 1-5 KJV)
Also note what the historian Josephus says about the sons of Japheth:
“1. (122) Now they were the grandchildren of Noah, in honor of whom names were imposed on the nations by those that first seized upon them. Japhet, the son of Noah, had seven sons: they inhabited so, that, beginning at the mountain Taurus and Amanus, they proceeded along Asia, as far as the river Tanais, and along Europe to Cadiz; and setting themselves on the lands which they light upon, which none had inhabited before, they called the nations by their own names; (123) for Gomer founded those whom the Greeks now call Galatians [Galls], but were then called Gomerites. Magog founded those that from him were named Magogites, but who are by the Greeks called Scythians. (124) Now as to Javan and Madai, the sons of Japhet; from Madai came the Madeans, who are called Medes by the Greeks; but from Javan, Ionia and all the Grecians are derived. Thobel founded the Thobelites, who are now called Iberes; (125) and the Mosocheni were founded by Mosoch; now they are Cappadocians. There is also a mark of their ancient denomination still to be shown; for there is even now among them a city called Mazaca, which may inform those that are able to understand, that so was the entire nation once called. Thiras also called those whom he ruled over, Thirasians; but the Greeks changed the name into Thracians. (126) And so many were the countries that had the children of Japhet for their inhabitants. Of the three sons of Gomer, Aschanax founded the Aschanaxians, who are now called by the Greeks Rheginians. So did Riphath found the Ripheans, now called Paphlagonians; and Thrugramma the Thrugrammeans, who, as the Greeks resolved, were named Phrygians. (127) Of the three sons of Javan also, the son of Japhet, Elisa gave name to the Eliseans, who were his subjects; they are now the Aeolians. Tharsus to the Tharsians; for so was Cilicia of old called; the sign of which is this, that the noblest city they have, and a metropolis also, is Tarsus, the tau being by change put for the theta. (128) Cethimus possessed the island Cethima; it is now called Cyprus: and from that it is that all islands, and the greatest part of the seacoasts, are named Cethim by the Hebrews; and one city there is in Cyprus that has been able to preserve its denomination; it is called Citius by those who use the language of the Greeks, and has not, by the use of that dialect, escaped the name of Cethim. And so many nations have the children and grandchildren of Japhet possessed. (129) Now when I have premised somewhat, which perhaps the Greeks do not know, I will return and explain what I have omitted; for such names are pronounced here after the manner of the Greeks, to please my readers; for our own country language does not so pronounce them; but the names in all cases are of one and the same ending; for the name we here pronounce Noeas, is there Noah, and in every case retains the same termination.” Josephus, F., & Whiston, W. (1987). The works of Josephus: complete and unabridged (CH6 “HOW EVERY NATION WAS DENOMINATED FROM THEIR FIRST INHABITANTS”) Josephus, F., & Whiston, W. (1987).

Only an Aryan, non-semitic peoples are referred to by the vast majority of historical resources to have pushed west into Europe, this happened in 1500BC, this is way before Israel went into captivity in Babylon, and British Israel theology asserts that the lost tribes fled captivity in Babylon (circa 800-900BC).
Know also that the bible teaches about those who claim to be Jews but are not (Revelation 2:9, 3:9). Watch out for those who FALSELY claim to be Jews.
9 Here, I will give you some from the synagogue of the Adversary, those who call themselves Jews but aren’t—on the contrary, they are lying—see, I will cause them to come and prostrate themselves at your feet, and they will know that I have loved you. (Revelation 3:9 CJB).
British Israelism is a TOTAL fallacy, watch out for it and its many manifestations that have crept into many European taught distortions of “Christianty” known correctly as The Way and the true faith of the ONE true God that created the heavens and the earth.
Africa should do all it can to strengthen itself against the tyranny of a white dominated world, which continually tramples on the rights of the poor (regardless of colour), but particularly on black peoples, with historical injustices barely apologised for, let alone reparations and repentance paid as we continue to suffer the neo-colonial psudo bigotry of an unjust system, that isn’t getting “better” as some assume, although our living standards and absolute wealth increases, our relative wealth to our white counterparts is significantly smaller than our white counterparts due in major part to the implicit bias of the system. Really all that has happened over the last 500 years is that the system is more sophisticated in its manifestations of racism and inequality. We have just enough material wealth to keep us from being disgruntled most of the time, just enough justice to stop riot or rebellion, but we don’t have absolute justice, and perhaps the vast majority of us do not have wealth or critical self determination.
I think a key thing African can do, to prevent a court of thieves declaring the guilty to be innocent, is to create a special court, I would call it, The African Court of Reparations and Justice and have all African nations agree to put sanctions on and/or confiscate the assets of any foreign (non-African) person, company, country or other organisation that refuses to either participate in its proceedings or abide by its rulings. The court should rule on atrocities and crimes against humanity carried out in Africa, along with righting the contractual terms of any one sided onerous trade deals struck with foreign companies or countries to extract Africa’s wealth. The court should also be able to make decisions regarding Africa’s alleged debts and colonial payments. The court should have no time limit and be able to reach back in time as far as accurate historical records and evidence will allow.
The International Court of Human Rights and the International Criminal Court will refuse to look at certain crimes against humanity because of their age, even though the effects of those crimes are so obviously felt today. Africans and black people need to have self determination and decide for ourselves what justice is. When you look at the track record of the peoples we are asking for justice, given their past record of crimes against humanity, fake wars, ruthless exploitation of resources and greed; one might as well expect an sexually abused child to get justice in a court of current and ex-pedophiles as for people of African descent to get justice at the hands of those people.
The main aim of this article is to describe Africa’s relationship to God and religion, and how following the wrong kind of religion can have disastrous effects.
Would you expect a man be angry if his wife cheated on him? Of course you would! Men plot revenge, fight, take back or destroy gifts; the act of cheating or adultery (by either spouse) is a cause of pain that not only affects the couple(s) involved, but also the children, relatives and even friends who are aware of the situation.
In the so called “Old Testament” or The Law (Torah) and The Prophets as Yahshua (Jesus) referred to it, Yahweh, on many occasions describes his relationship with Israel, his chosen people, likening it to the relationship between a husband and an unfaithful wife. Perhaps for people aware of scripture Hosea is the book of The Bible most frequently referred to in this respect.
Looking at the “New Testament” or B’rit Hadashah which informs us about The New Covenant, you might be surprised that not a great deal has has changed in terms of the Yah’s people going astray. The relationship between Yahweh and His people, “Israel”, the community of believers also known as The Assembly or “Church” is likened to the relationship between a husband Yah or Yahshua and a wife, the Apostle Paul tells us:
There is profound truth hidden here, which I say concerns the Messiah and the Messianic Community (Eph 5:31–32 CJB)
Actually, that profound truth, or mystery as some translations put it, was well known among Jews and anyone familiar with the Torah. I want to suggest that in our current time, the relationship between Yahweh and The Community of believers or Church is the same as it ever was in terms of it being similar to the relationship between a man and his wife. Let’s look at this scripture in Revelation:
Then came one of the angels with the seven bowls; and he said to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great whore who is sitting by many waters. The kings of the earth went whoring with her, and the people living on earth have become drunk from the wine of her whoring.” (Revelation 17 1&2 CJB).
I want to plainly interpret that scripture for you and say that this “great whore” refers to false religion AND the apostate community of “believers” or the apostate church. To become drunk with the “wine of her whoring” refers to having an understanding of life that comes from accepting a system borne of a spirit of error, rebellion and godlessness, this leads the mind to become “drunk”, and as one does when one is drunk, one finds it difficult to think clearly and act in a sensible manner.
Now I want to relate what I am writing to the situation specifically in Africa, but also in many parts of the world with often vibrant “Christian” communities which are poor and suffering. Let’s look at this chapter of scripture, Proverbs chapter 5:
1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom;
incline your ear to my understanding;
2 so that you will preserve discretion
and your lips keep watch over knowledge.
3 For the lips of a woman who is a stranger drop honey,
her mouth is smoother than oil;
Note that the “woman who is a stranger” is the same as an adulteress or whore. I want to suggest that false religion and the apostate body of believers entice people with “smooth words”, “she” may look beautiful from the outside with magnificent buildings, a great reputation and have the appearance of warmth, but..
4 but in the end she is as bitter as wormwood,
sharp as a double-edged sword.
5 Her feet go down to death,
her steps lead straight to Sh’ol;
6 she doesn’t walk the level path of life—
her course wanders all over, but she doesn’t know it.
This means that the woman, doesn’t even realise that her way of life is corrupt. The same can be said for the apostate Church, they don’t know that what they do is wrong. Am I being harsh here? I think not, for scripture says “there are those pure in their own eyes but not yet cleansed of their filth” (Proverbs 30:12) which I am going to link with what Yahshua said of people who actually call on his name and claim to work miracles in his name, yet He will say to them “Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness!” (Matthew 7:21-23).
7 So now, children, listen to me;
don’t turn away from what I am saying:
8 distance your way from her,
stay far from the door of her house;
9 so that you won’t give your vigor to others
and your years to someone who is cruel,
10 so strangers won’t be filled with your strength
and what you worked for go to a foreign house.
And here is the key, the adulterer, loose woman, or whore has a “house” which you could in parallel see as a “church”, and we are told not to go there, and even to distance ourselves from it, because if we do enter in, we are in danger of seeing all the things that we work for go to someone else. In the physical realm this could be because such women want payment, favours, or you may have a child by such a woman and have to pay for the child’s upkeep.
However, in a spiritual sense this can also relate to Africa. African’s are zealous for God, and indeed have many God’s, but the religion with the most impact on many African’s is arguably Christianity, because if its heavy links to The Trans Atlantic Slave Trade, Colonialisation, and the continuation of the subjugation of the continent, as if by remote control, by the military, economic, social, linguistic, cultural (etc) forces of Europe, America, China, etc. Couldn’t Africa, if you imagine it as a person, be described as one who is giving their wealth and strength to others, whose toil is enriching foreigners, but who remains poor?
I want to suggest that the form of religion many African’s have taken up is an adulterous one, yes, and even more specifically the Christians. The apostate church has forsaken the law of God (note Proverbs 28:4), and by this I don’t mean offering sacrifices, look at what Yahshua said in Matthew 5:17-20 in particular, but all of Yahshua’s teaching and truly understand that when Yahshua said “it is finished” (John 19:28-30), he didn’t mean the law or Torah is done away with, but the earthly administration of The Law is over. Yahshua became The Sacrifice (note Isaiah 66:3 & 4, 1 John 2:2), The Priest (Hebrews 9), The King (Revelation 19:16). Yahweh isn’t the author of confusion, so he wouldn’t declare that heaven and earth would pass away before the smallest part of a word would disappear from the law or Torah, and then within years cancel the law by the death of His Son on the cross.
Africa has taken up the adulterated whorish version of Christianity which is the offspring of ROME (even if you are Protestant), and not the offspring of JERUSALEM. In the Christian tradition, God’s law is set aside as a pattern of obedience in preference to something “new”, and just as the adulterer(ess) will not stay faithful to the “old” and known pleasures of his rightful wife (or husband), but wants to try something “new”; so too the apostate church goes in search of many “new” teachings, often with the appearance that they are based on scripture, when in reality they are loose interpretations of scripture that encourage us to abandon in some respect the old commandments that God gave his faithful to obey, and which The New Covenant states will be written in our heart.
This “new” teaching of the apostate church seems beautiful on the outside, we may have been enticed by smooth words, nice songs, colourful pictures, ornate buildings; but the reality is this teaching has made Africa poor. “We’ve loved Jesus Christ so much, but our wealth is taken from us, we’ve been enslaved, raped, plundered, and it never seems to end, first the Europeans, now the Chinese. We convert factories into churches and pray for jobs, and our miracle healers stayed at home during Covid-19.” Africa, where has your freedom gone? How has your wealth been extracted? Where is the benefit from the faith you have and the tithes you paid? Must Africa always rely on handouts and aid from the “developed world” rather than independently support itself? This is a critical question when you consider that Africa is central to the wealth the “developed world” has amassed over the years because of the ruthless extraction of labour and resources and also realise that Africa is a net creditor to the rest of the world, yes, more comes out of Africa in terms of wealth (resources and labour) than what goes into it in terms of Aid.
In the USA there have been arguments about “defunding” the police, taking away its resources and putting them into programs of work that focus on policing at a community level. So we could apply the same concept of “defunding” to The churches in Africa. Why pay your tithes and offerings into an organisation that isn’t working for you, an organisation that is adulterous because of its links with paganism (Christmas, Easter, Sunday worship, the obelisk in St Peters Square etc), an organisation that has the roots of its existence, not in Jerusalem, not even in any country in Africa, but in Rome or even England.
If the faith of the congregation you are part of is so shallow that you are taught lawless chaff that will only serve to lead you away from God and the truth is not preached; and if there are no miracles and gifts of The Spirit, no true healing, no prophecy that is affirmed and comes to pass, why are you paying money into that church? Why are you feeding on its doctrines? You are effectively paying money to an adulterous woman or a whore, who will not satisfy your deep spiritual needs. Let’s face it some churches act like a spiritual ponzi (or pyramid) scheme, lots of people paying into it, and putting effort into it, but the only people at the top get the benefits.
Yahshua said he came to give you life in abundance (John 10:10), and that may not mean earthly riches for everyone, but equally it doesn’t mean that generations of people should be enslaved to false doctrines, as if being hoodwinked and waylaid by the evil teachings of people with a callous disregard for God truth and all humanity.
The fact is the “Christianity” Europeans teach is tied to paganism, that’s why these “new” doctrines you wont actually be able to find in scripture. Don’t get me wrong, you will find the scripture the doctrine is based on, but you won’t find that doctrine actually taught or commanded in scripture. Many false teachings require “reading into”, “heavy interpretation”, “additional knowledge” or just plain old imagination to make people who are naive and weak minded accept error for truth! We can’t just accept what people say, we have to test it! Know your Bible, know your freedom!
The Roman Empire started first with conquest, then transformed into religion. Initially The Romans had a big issue with Israel, because Israel was the only kingdom that was monotheistic (only serving one God) that Rome wanted to conquer, and it cost the Romans heavily to capture Jerusalem and destroy the temple. Doesn’t it seem strange that the Romans then made a beautiful cathedral and chose to make themselves the spiritual home of a “copy religion” of a nation it had just all but destroyed? This was a very symbolic event, and one should understand the counterfeit nature of The Roman Catholic Church (and all denominations that hold to any part of its “new” false teachings), that it has created a polytheistic religion (worship of more than one God) and packaged it up as if it is the only truth, indeed it proclaims to be the “Universal Church”.
The Roman Catholic Church, in my opinion, was the major driver in introducing through the “Doctrine of Discovery”, the basis for White Supremacy to enter into the world. The nefarious Pope Nicholas V’s proclamation of the Papal Bull entitled Dum Diversas (1452) gave European kings the right to conquer lands and perpetually enslave peoples. Numerous churches latched on to that twisting scripture, and again coming up with false doctrines to justify their reading of God’s Word. Through this doctrine, Europeans embarked on a greedy rampage which saw them spread over 4 continents of the world, and to this day, so heavy are the chains of their false teachings, that many Africans really believe that Christianity, even the religion of The Bible condones The Trans Atlantic Slave Trade. That false teaching has affected 500 years of the development of African people on this planet. Loss of property, land, resources, history and led even to people becoming property is directly as a result of this Catholic teaching, and many other churches that have, as if in unison of spirit agreed with Rome’s accord.
It’s important to realise that false teaching isn’t just a matter of intellectual acceptance, we accept these teachings in our spirit, and that is more dangerous. The spirit drives the intellect and not the other way around.
11 Then, when your flesh and bones have shrunk,
at the end of your life, you would moan,
12 “How I hated discipline!
My whole being despised reproof,
13 I ignored what my teachers said,
I didn’t listen to my instructors.
14 I took part in almost every kind of evil,
and the whole community knew it.”
When we seen the effects of relations with an adulteress or a whore, whether that be a physical woman or an church that teaches error, we will see that those effects are negative – losing your wealth, time in terms of lost years in serving the cruel, wasted vigor and strength. One can see all those have happened to Africa, but all is not lost, there is still hope and a remedy:
15 Drink the water from your own cistern,
fresh water from your own well.
16 Let what your springs produce be dispersed outside,
streams of water flowing in the streets;
17 but let them be for you alone
and not for strangers with you.
Africa needs to establish it’s own interpretation of Christianity, going back to the truth of “The Way”, and not to rely on the colonial superstate religion that is European taught Christianity; whether that be Roman Catholicism or any branch of Sunday keeping covenant breaking Protestantism. European influenced teachings must be driven out! Rome has their Church, the English have their Church of England. Africa should have a congregation, perhaps following on from The Ethiopian Church, which has always had strong ties to Jerusalem, existed before The Roman Catholic Church, and actually observes God’s commandments. Note also that Ethiopia is the only country in Africa never to be colonised!
18 Let your fountain, the wife of your youth,
be blessed; find joy in her—
19 a lovely deer, a graceful fawn;
let her breasts satisfy you at all times,
always be infatuated with her love.
20 My son, why be infatuated with an unknown woman?
Why embrace the body of a loose woman?
21 For ADONAI [Yahweh] is watching a man’s ways;
he surveys all his paths.
22 A wicked person’s own crimes will trap him,
he will be held fast by the ropes of his sin.
23 He will die from lack of discipline;
the magnitude of his folly will make him totter and fall. (Proverbs 5 CJB).
Here the scripture in the sense of human relationships is exhorting us to remain faithful to the wife of our youth, our first love so to speak (though not all are lucky enough to find someone that way, we can all take it as our wife/husband and not another extra-marital partner). In a spiritual sense, this means to remain faithful to God and His truth, and not to stray into the desire for spiritual adultery and whoredom, that being these “new” teachings which are not from God but are from man, purely to serve the interests of man, which sadly will always lead to spiritual and material loss.
Africa, wake up and realise your true worth! Repair the breaches in your spiritual defenses and ready yourself for a revival of all things, because the power that is within you when fully realised through the one true God, is greater than the power of the satanic error ridden doctrines that have dominated you for the last 500 years. In my lifetime I want to see this happen, please share and teach!
It’s strange that every country seems to be in debt, and at a time when we are in a health crisis that the stock market is allegedly booming in some sectors, while the poor get poorer, big companies are bailed out by the taxpayer, and then some even sue the government for loss of profits, while the same said government has to be forced into an embarrassing u-turn on feeding poor children over the school holidays. Where does all our wealth go as UK citizens? Why are we caught out by a pandemic and seemingly having to falsify our death rate not to appear in the top 2 countries affected by Covid-19? Doesn’t this just reveal how poor our investment in our own infrastructure and essential services is, while at the drop of a hat we can bail out big business. What hypocrisy!
It’s made worse when you realise that the empire Britain built in its heyday is still effectively in place, and than money from large companies, illicit arms and drug deals all filter through some former (and existing) colonial territories and dependent territories, some of which are even linked to where The Queen stashes some of her wealth as revealed in The Panama Papers. The video below, “The Spiders Web”, is a really good insight into how physical colonialism has morphed into a financial colonialism, perhaps a more respectable arm of The British Empire, while it remains hidden!
The United Kingdom is by no means a true friend to Africa and the “Commonwealth Nations” within it, it makes big companies based abroad pay as little tax as possible to African nations, so there is less wealth kept in Africa to help build it up. Then it shouts about how much aid it sends to Africa like it is making a big sacrifice! Some additional reading is provided below, which goes to show what a sham the British establishments claims on transparency and good governance or co-operation with its Commonwealth members really is.
Compare what happened in Tulsa (a wealthy black community being destroyed during the race riots of 1921) with what is happening in Oriana, South Africa, where white people have a thriving community.
Black people in Tulsa were the descendants of former slaves, taken from their homelands by force, they didn’t choose to be where they were, but tried to make the best of their situation. White people in South Africa are invaders who took what they have by force and held onto power for years despite much of the world being disgusted at their oppressive regime.
White people will not let black people live in peace, yet black people will let White people live in peace and flourish! Which of us is really more civilised and why does the white race continually show a narcissistic attitude of hate toward black people in every way possible?

Thinking on the roots of Racism in Britain, Europe and The United States. The world is messed up because of Europeans ruthless exploitation of four things; religion (distorted), people, land and property.
I’ve posted before about the Papal Bull Dum Diversas, issued on 18 June, 1452, Pope Nicholas V which opened up the way for “The Age of Discovery” and gave a religious backing to European monarchy’s and nations to go to all parts of the earth and plunder and enslave any nations that were not “Christian”. This is diametrically opposed and completely out of line to the message of The Gospel, which had been in existence for well over a thousand years at that point. Let’s think of the misery that 250 years or more of slavery caused, that’s more than 8 generations of life born into a system that treats people as subhuman, enduring long hard physical work, without pay, beatings, lynchings, forced conversion to religion, mass baptisms in which people died, and I could go on. Think of that and compare it with what Yahshua (Jesus) said:
“The thief comes only in order to steal, kill and destroy; I have come so that they may have life, life in its fullest measure.”
John 10:10 CJB
The Gospel should give people freedom, not enslave.
I figure if these European institutions hadn’t realised what the truth of the message of the Gospel was by that point, they probably never will, and perhaps this is borne out by later Pope’s allegedly giving their blessing to infamous characters such as Hitler and Mussolini. All this under the Papal dogma of infallibility, The Pope can do no wrong and does not make errors in judgement. We need to discredit the Papal regime because it’s institution has caused untold suffering and misery on earth. Just look at what is happening in these days with The Papacy’s cover up of child abuse, and tell me that in all sincerity this “church” is a church that honours God!? Yahshua said:
Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me; and whoever ensnares one of these little ones who trust me, it would be better for him to have a millstone hung around his neck and be drowned in the open sea! Woe to the world because of snares! For there must be snares, but woe to the person who sets the snare!” (Matthew 18:5-7 CJB)
To extend my argument about the misuse of religion by Europeans let’s look at the concept of British Israelism. This is a pseudoarchaeological false doctrine that arguably underpins the notion of The British Empire being ordained by God to go out across the earth and conquer, subdue and “Christianise”, or rather indoctrinate people into a belief system, that sees their colonisers as having God given rights to do what they will, a kind of Stockholm Syndrome caused by fake religion – that isn’t to say belief in Yah is fake, but one has to be careful of what doctrines on believes, and to do this one has to read and understand the scriptures, because if you don’t someone will always use scripture against you.
British Israelism is one of the most ridiculous interpretations of scripture ever, period. It is so utterly fake, even their logo looks like a Ku Klux Klan ripoff, we are looking at the psuedo-intellectual version of the same in the UK here. British Israelism tries to argue that the inhabitants of the British Isles, some parts of Northern Europe and subsequently The United States are descendants of Jewish people expelled from Israel when it was crushed by The Roman Empire in AD70. The doctrine implies that Israels “old covenant” remit to drive out nations will applies to their colonial exploits, even though the scriptures state that God promised Israel a specific portion of land, not many lands all over the world.
According to archaeologist John Hoopes, writing in the magazine of the Society for American Archaeology, “Pseudoarchaeology actively promotes myths that are routinely used in the service of white supremacy, racialized nationalism, colonialism, and the dispossession and oppression of indigenous peoples.” (Source Wikipedia)
It wouldn’t surprise me if in the future we find out that the far right in the UK, The Police, The Army, Politicians and The Monarchy are all to some degree in step and agreement with British Israelism’s beliefs. British Israelism is also known as Ephraimite Ideology. Know for certain that the bible has something clear and damning to say about people who pretend to be Jews who are not:
“I know how you are suffering and how poor you are (though in fact you are rich!), and I know the insults of those who call themselves Jews but aren’t—on the contrary, they are a synagogue of the Adversary. Don’t be afraid of what you are about to suffer. Look, the Adversary is going to have some of you thrown in prison, in order to put you to the test; and you will face an ordeal for ten days. Remain faithful, even to the point of death; and I will give you life as your crown. (Revelation 2:9/10)
You can see how European use of religion demeans people in order to exploit them, their land and their property. It may sound harsh to say this because churches are all about love nowadays, but the love the church shows now is built on a premise of exploitation, and this exploitation has never been recognised adequately or recompensed. The same can be said for all European nations and the nations of The America’s, Australia and others.
When these belief systems are still taught, clung to by the establishment, when we have to protect the statues of people who exploited tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands if not millions of people on earth, its no wonder people want to protest! When people look at the inequalities that exist today and try to divorce it from the context of history to perpetuate the myths of black inferiority, side-stepping the issue, coming up with ideas that fix the manifestations of racism, but don’t tackle the root cause; this shows that as a society we are still not ready to face up to the sea change in society that has to happen to enable true equality.
I finish encouraging you to watch this video featuring Black Lives Matter’s Kimberly Jones. I don’t agree with rioting, but I understand the message she is presenting. The monopoly analogy is good.

Just had to respond to this on Facebook.
1) African countries need to toughen up their laws to stop foreign companies from extracting wealth and paying them very little for it. Also the contracts that these foreign companies have, need to be scrutinised to see if they were made fairly, or whether they can be revoked and the resources exploited returned to African control.
2) Corruption in Africa makes Africa weak. Wealth needs to be pushed back into the country, not kept in the hands of the few.
3) Africa being split up into small countries makes its bargaining power on the world stage small. As one union, with such a mass of natural resources that the so called developed world needs, being able to dictate pricing rather than accept it is key to building wealth.
4) African governments need to invest in people to do the work which “social conditioning” makes people think only whites and foreigners can do the work. If Africa did this industries could be built with indigenous people, rather than black people in menial low paid roles and others at the top creaming off the big pay.
5) War and division in Africa makes it weak. The times are such that people need to come together to build unity, strength and a future rather than squabble over the scraps those who promote an agenda of decide and conquer love to leave for us.
6) I also think religion on Africa is a problem, Virulent forms of Christianity and Islam have worked they way into the content and led historically to many Africans being enslaved, and to conflict in the present day. Any religion accepted by Africans must be true, and I am not talking about being allowed to worship “god’s” that people make with their own hands, but at the same time, a “god” fashioned in the image of people who enslave you is no better. Africa needs to dig deep for spiritual truth.
7) The African relationship with The Diaspora makes Africa weak. We are two halves or pieces of the same cloth torn apart by evil forces, and while we are divided in such a way, those evil forces continue to conquer us both in the land and outside of it. If and when we join to create a unity, sharing resources, talents, vision and the work!I think Africa and Africans will be unstoppable!
As a child I cam to know Yah through reading His Word, because I had the question who was the first man and woman on the earth, and I read Genesis and subsequently most of the “Old Testament”. My father was baptised but not church going, he was a humble man who left school at the age of 11 in Jamaica to work in the cane fields. My mother also left school at an early age (13) to become a seamstress, and she wasn’t baptised or a believer. Also living with us was my uncle, he was an elder in a church, a gifted singer and accordion player.
In our house, there was a picture on the wall outside the living room of a white man on a cloud wearing a white robe with a purple sash, and I always wondered who it was? I think it was my father who told me that is “Jesus” and Jesus is God. I think it is called cognitive dissonance, because when I read the scriptures in Exodus about Israel being released from captivity by God, I always assumed the Israelites were black.
Much has happened to challenge my faith over the years, some of which I know others will identify with, such as being brought up in a religious system that incorporates paganism (Sunday Sabbath, Christmas, Easter etc), being systematically taught through religion, language, law, financial distribution and social institutions that I am second place in a society that values whiteness, and how Eurocentric whiteness frames what justice is as the norm for the world (if you consider that America is essentially an offshoot of Europe which has surpassed Europe in power, and that the Chinese are still-up-and -coming in terms of world control).
What strikes me at this time is that The Hebrew Israelite movement focuses a lot on America, yet there are populations of black people in The Caribbean, South America, and Europe also. In fact I have heard that most slaves taken from Africa were sent to South America. Anyway my first question is, do Hebrew Israelites consider only American black people to be true Hebrews?
My second question is one that relates more to the title of the thread. Given that black people have undeniably built the foundations of these white societies and have caused them to have wealth, which they extracted from us more times than not by force or trickery, and seeing that we have been denied an equal footing in society, and it appears that instead of justice getting closer, it ebbs ever further away as white supremacy rises, my question is, why aren’t the thoughts of a black leader like Marcus Garvey taken up and by our race. I mean what are we in a position to do, plead, ask, demand or take justice from this white supremacist regime that not only exploits black people in America, but in Europe, South America and in Africa too, through the continual looting of illegally gained resources, raping the land and leaving behind toxic scars that kill the inhabitants. Why is it that we are waiting for God to come back and put an end to all this, and why isn’t it that black people aren’t taking up the challenge to divert the force of our own intellect, labour and capital to build up Africa – a land which offers true opportunity for us, rather than us continue to contribute through blood, sweat and tears into to a system that drives us to our graves and offers us knees on the neck, flavoured with slaps in the face and hypocrisy on the way?
What wealth do the nations that we currently live in truly poses? An old Aswad (UK Reggae band) record from way back has the line “Son’s of criminals found wanting”, steal the land, steal the resources, marginalise the oppressed, demonise the anyone who shows they are awake (woke), turn justice into bitterness (Amos 5:7) and repeat… When a nation gains wealth by those means, truly, of what value would that wealth be to someone else? Tainted riches are always tainted aren’t they? Isn’t true wealth to have pleasure in the fruit of your labour knowing that you have gained your wealth by fair means? Isn’t it being able to raise your children in a system that doesn’t systematically exploit them in every which way it can in order for its demonically influenced hegemonic superiority to be maintained?
