Have you ever felt down in the dumps because the predominant gene pool of you and your family stem from the line of Ham?
Maybe you feel inferior to other races or people groups.
Or when something bad happens to you, maybe you feel like it’s because you’re cursed or something.
Well, none of that is true.
Read this and feel better.
First, given all of the race mixing (I myself am half-Japanese and half-French) and intermarriage that has occurred over the centuries, the simple truth of the matter is that if it were possible to conduct a DNA test that would be able to tell us to the very molecule what races of blood are flowing through our veins back to biblical times, I think the results would show that we are most likely a mixture of all of Noah’s three sons.
Second, 10 of the tribes of Israel were actually dispersed throughout all the Gentile nations.
So regardless of what color your skin is, it is totally possible that you could have some Israelite blood in you.
Third, the Scriptures make it clear that regardless of what line you were born into physically, you can make a spiritual choice to be grafted into God’s holy line.
And of course, the opposite is also true.
Many Arabs have forsaken their Godly Shem heritage for the cursed line of Ham by choosing to identify with the ancient Philistines (for those who weren’t aware,”Palestine” is just the Greek word for “Philistine”).
And many Jews, people originally chosen by God, have chosen to switch their allegiance from the God of Israel to a God their ancestors did not know. The below video is a sad example that this sometime happens. The gentlemen being profiled is a Jewish person whose original name was Joseph Cohen but for whatever reason decided to convert to Islam.
And on a more positive note, the following is a video of an Arab Christian who is serving in the Israeli Defense Forces (sorry, this video is Hebrew only).
The most important decision you will ever make and the ultimate determinant of your identity is NOT your earthly blood lines but which God you decide to entrust your life to!
Choose wisely because you will have to live with this decision for all eternity.
CONNECTING THIS TEACHING TO THE NEW TESTAMENT
There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor freeman, neither male nor female; for in union with the Messiah Yeshua, you are all one.-Galatians 3:28
Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called “uncircumcised” by those who call themselves “the circumcision” (which is done in the body by human hands)— remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.-Ephesians 2:11-14
