PART 1 WHO CARES WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS Before we get started let me first give a brief and hopefully compelling proposition why YOU should care what the Holy Bible says It s simple really Look at today s date go ahead I ll wait okay you got it Good Because the date that you just acknowledged is based on what The Holy Bible Specifically it is based on the timing of when the man commonly referred to as Jesus Christ walked on this planet we call Earth We are living in the era of anno Domini or simply A D That is Medieval Latin for in the year of the Lord the full original phrase went as such anno Domini nostri Jesu Christi which translates from Latin to English as in the year of our Lord Jesus Christ Now regardless if you are a Christian or not or believe Jesus was the only begotten Son of God or not there is no mistaken that His Life was important enough to change the very calendars by which we go by in modern days And in case you did not know the Holy Bible is all about Jesus and God s people and His Plan of Salvation Next the Holy Bible is the only religious spiritual book that was actually authorized by a sovereign king of a nation i e King James of England and which has consequently remained virtually unchallenged to this very day You may say how do you know it is accurate and or legitimate Well again it s simple really 1 I have personally read It from cover to cover 2 I have studied It and many other relevant books 3 It is part factual History Book 4 Faith 5 the Holy Spirit and 6 DANIEL 4 17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers and the demand by the word of the holy ones to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men and giveth it to whomsoever he will and setteth up over it the basest of men emphasis added DANIEL 4 17 4

You get that right In other words God knows what He is doing and He is indeed the supreme ruler of all the universe and consequently of your existence And finally but certainly not last because I could go on and on but really the book speaks for itself to wit 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine for reproof for correction for instruction in righteousness 17 That the man of God may be perfect thoroughly furnished unto all good works 2 TIMOTHY 3 16 17 Now that was just a taste consider it and continue reading to get an understanding WHY BLACK LIVES DON T MATTER ACCORDING TO GOD 8 O taste and see that the Lord is good blessed is the man that trusteth in him PSALM 34 8 7 Consider what I say and the Lord give thee understanding in all things 2 TIMOTHY 2 7 By the way I am using the King James Version of the Holy Bible throughout this book due to the above explanation I just shared There are many translations based on that version and of course on other astute Biblical Scholars research and study And while they may have some value to them in helping to understand what was written I am sticking with the King James Version so we can all be on the same page and have a reliable source to use Now let s get into it 5

PART 2 SPEAKING OF JESUS Everybody loves Jesus except of course those who don t And there was a particular group of people who did not love Him in fact they called for His death and crucifixion when He walked on this Earth in His homeland of Israel Yes Jesus was a Jew Many seem to like to overlook that reality or simply think it does not matter But in fact it matters tremendously Knowing who Jesus is and where He comes from is literally the difference between life and death 12 Neither is there salvation in any other for there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved ACTS 4 12 Now this man Jesus came from somewhere and that somewhere was from one of the tribes of Israel Specifically it was the tribe of Judah For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda HEBREWS 7 14 He was not Irish or Russian or Chinese or Spanish or French or Korean or Lithuanian or any other ethnicity but a Jew from the tribe of Judah of the nation of Israel Why is this so important Well we just reviewed what was proclaimed in ACTS 4 12 above and here is yet another vital reason Hear this word that the Lord hath spoken against you O children of Israel against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt saying 2 You only have I known of all the families of the earth therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities emphasis added AMOS 3 1 2 Did you get that There is only one people on the planet Earth who the Almighty God dealt with and showed them His ways and how to live and succeed on the planet His planet And that people was the tribes children of Israel based on the names of the sons of Israel Reuben Simeon Levi Judah Issachar Zebulun Joseph Benjamin Dan Naphtali Gad and Asher See GENESIS 35 22 26 6

Remember the promise God Almighty gave to Abraham 1 Now the Lord had said unto Abram Get thee out of thy country and from thy kindred and from thy father s house unto a land that I will shew thee 2 And I will make of thee a great nation emphasis added GENESIS 12 1 2 And of course Abraham was the father of Isaac and Isaac was the father of Jacob later to be renamed Israel by an angel he wrestled with see GENESIS 32 22 32 and Israel was the father of 12 sons who grew and enlarged to be the nation of Israel Even though the Most High promised to bless Abraham He also prophesized something else that would befall his offspring 13 And he said unto Abram Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs and shall serve them and they shall afflict them four hundred years GENESIS 15 13 Wow on one hand God is promising to bless Abraham and on the other he is saying that his children are going to be afflicted what is going on here Well first know that God is not the author of confusion 1 CORINTHIANS 14 33 God does not contradict Himself He is a God of reason See ISAIAH 1 18 That said GENESIS 15 13 brings us to the state of affairs today and what is going on in the great United States of America Let s talk about it 7

PART 3 WHAT MATTERS MOST Clearly there is a tug of war when it comes to race relations in our country You have one group chanting BLACK LIVES MATTER and you have another group saying ALL LIVES MATTER can both co exist and both be the truth or are they diametrically opposed to each other In other words must a person give up one in order to accept the other And basically this truly is the crux of the issue The Holy Scripture states choose you this day whom ye will serve JOSHUA 24 15 One of the biggest reasons why there is so much confusion angst turmoil etc etc in our country and all around the world today is because the Truth has been thrown to the ground and a lie has prospered in its place And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression and it cast down the truth to the ground and it practised and prospered emphasis added DANIEL 8 12 Who is behind the casting down of the truth None other than satan the devil who was originally the Almighty s most beautiful angel Lucifer 12 How art thou fallen from heaven O Lucifer son of the morning how art thou cut down to the ground which didst weaken the nations 13 For thou hast said in thine heart I will ascend into heaven I will exalt my throne above the stars of God I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation in the sides of the north 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds I will be like the most High ISAIAH 14 12 14 I know many may not believe in that or maybe it has been overused misused etc but that does not make it any less the Truth Satan was is against the Almighty Yah 8

and wanted to overthrow Him and convinced a third of the angels to go along with such a foolish plan And now he and his demons i e fallen angels are roaming the earth seeing who they can deceive devour and destroy because they know that their time is short And the great dragon was cast out that old serpent called the Devil and Satan which deceiveth the whole world he was cast out into the earth and his angels were cast out with him emphasis added REVELATION 12 9 Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea for the devil is come down unto you having great wrath because he knoweth that he hath but a short time emphasis added REVELATION 12 12 And time is indeed short Remember the 400 years that was referenced in GENESIS 15 13 Well that is about to be fulfilled on August 20 2019 That s right according to the bill H R 1242 the one President Donald J Trump signed into law on January 8 2018 it proclaimed that On August 20 1619 20 Africans arrived at Point Comfort present day Fort Monroe in Hampton Virginia aboard a Dutch ship emphasis added this is taken from the background facts that informed the H R 1242 bill Yes it is true the so called negroes blacks African Americans are the true Jews of the Bible and are Abraham s seed 68 And the Lord shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships by the way whereof I spake unto thee Thou shalt see it no more again and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen and no man shall buy you emphasis added DEUTERONOMY 28 68 Now recall 9

13 And he said unto Abram Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs and shall serve them and they shall afflict them four hundred years emphasis added GENESIS 15 13 41 Thou shalt beget sons and daughters but shalt not enjoy them for they shall go into captivity 64 And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people from the one end of the earth even unto the other and there thou shalt serve other gods which neither thou nor thy fathers have known even wood and stone 65 And among these nations shalt thou find no ease neither shall the sole of they foot have rest but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart and failing eyes and sorrow of mind emphasis added DEUTERONOMY 28 41 64 65 But why did all this happen to us the so called negro who in reality are the true Hebrews of the Holy Bible and WHY DON T BLACK LIVES MATTER ACCORDING TO GOD 15 But it shall come to pass if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day that all these curses shall come upon thee and overtake thee emphasis added DEUTERONOMY 28 15 47 Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness and with gladness of heart for the abundance of all things 48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee in hunger and in thirst and in nakedness and in want of all things and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck until he have destroyed thee emphasis added DEUTERONOMY 28 47 48 10

But wait it doesn t stop there Remember when we were discussing Jesus the Messiah Well it was our ancestors the true Hebrew Israelite Jews that called for His crucifixion and went even as far as saying this 1 When the morning was come all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death 23 And the governor said Why what evil hath he done But they cried out the more saying Let him be crucified 24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing but that rather a tumult was made he took water and washed his hands before the multitude saying I am innocent of the blood of this just person see ye to it 25 Then answered all the people and said His blood be on us and on our children emphasis added MATTHEW 25 1 23 25 We blacks i e the Hebrew Israelite Jews are the children and that my friends is an introduction to WHY BLACK LIVES DON T MATTER ACCORDING TO GOD But keep in mind the time is short and the 400 years is almost complete So what happens next For the Lord will have mercy on Jacob and will yet choose Israel and set them in their own land emphasis added ISAIAH 14 1 Oh so we re not done stay tuned for more Truth Yah Bless 11
