It is needed for preparations of cleansing for the priests and the “new” temple which is proposed for the people who call themselves Israel and who occupy the land of Palestine.
According to historical records, about 85% of this population are Europeans, called Khazars who converted to Judaism around the 9th Century A.D.
They are “converted” Khazarians, i.e. largely Europeans who have no relationship to Abraham. They are not Israelites, they are not purified, (they have found no red heifer) and they have no claim to the land. Yet, it is believed by many that they are the “blood descendants” of the people of the Bible.
According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, a Jew (Yehudi) is one who’s religion is Judaism. More specifically it defines a Jew as any person through descent or conversion, is a descent of the ancient Hebrew people of the Old Testament. Actually, a Yehudi or “Judahite” was a person who lived in Judah, in what became known as the southern kingdom of Judah. Israel was in the North, whose capital was Samara. Israel was cut off and largely replaced with Gentiles from Assyria.
They lacked even the knowledge of how to perform the worship and services of God to the extent that the king had to bring people in the land to teach them.
The Britannica definition is not totally accurate. In fact, a descendant of Abraham who refused circumcision was “cut off” from the people even though he was a direct descendant of Abraham, (Gen. 17). Secondly, it was both the Covenant which made the people Israel, in the same manner that the Constitution of America makes one a “citizen” of the United States regardless of descent.
Paul goes even further to define a child of Abraham (1) by saying they are not all Israel who are of Israel nor are all those born of Abraham’s flesh children, but rather the children of promise are counted for the seed. (Rom. 9:6-8). Gal. 3 states that “only” those of faith are children of Abraham, and it is those of faith [in Christ] who are entitled to inherit the promise of Abraham.
In addition, there are DNA studies from a Jewish Rabbi, that the so-called Jews in Israel today are Khazarian. According to Arthur Koestler’s “The Thirteenth Tribe”, their conversion to Judaism was a political move to avoid becoming subject to the Roman Emperor and the Caliph of Islam. By choosing Judaism, they gave themselves validity for having a respected religion.
Encyclopedia Judaica, Britannica Encyclopedia, along with historical works like Arthur Koestler’s “The Thirteenth Tribe” demonstrate the illegitimacy of the Khazarians as true descendants of Abraham.
This amounts to “stolen identity” of a people. As such, some will claim this view is “Anti-Semitic”, a popular guilt manipulation strategy of this group who calls themselves Israel. Even when other non-Zionists Torah-keeping Jews reject their claim as an abuse of the Old Testament teachings (Torah) they are referred to as “self-hating Jews”.
According to the Zondervan Pictorial Encyclopedia, “Semitic” does not refer to an ethnic group but to a family of languages, commonly spoken by people of African descent. Many of these languages such as Amharic, Ge’ez, Akkadian, Ugaritic, Hebrew, Syria, etc, all of which are Semtic languages are yet spoken today.
The language of the Khazars was not Semitic, nor was it Hebrew. They borrowed the Hebrew alphabet and used their own language which was called Yiddish. In fact, there are some words in their language which are not decipherable because of this very fact.
The common belief is that Semite means a descendant of Shem. This is false. The Patriarchs all spoke one language until after the flood and the event of Babel when God confounded their speech. The irony of it all is that scholars report that Elam, a direct descendant of Shem, did not speak the Semitic language! Yet Ham and his descendants did. They are Ethiopia, (Cush) Mizraim (Egypt) Put (Libya) and Canaan.
Thus to be Anti-Semitic means to be against the spoken language of these ancient African peoples.
What Israel (the Khazars) amounts to in claiming to be descendants of the Israelites is Identity theft. Yet, dispensationalism is peddled as a legitimate eschatological paradigm by Christian Zionists who support these false claims. If the people are not the Israelites of the Bible to what purpose and end is the red heifer and the temple even if it were built?
