Several people presented comments (which I did not post) regarding how foolish I was for making the claim that Jesus was white. Yet it is people with this very same mindset which like to make unfounded claims that Jesus was brown and looked like a typical middle eastern person. They may even add that it doesn't matter if He was white, black, blue or green. I was simply presenting the evidence that Jesus did in fact inherit (by the very nature of physical birth) a racial identity. This racial identity was extremely important and is the reason the Bible takes time to firmly establish this by giving his genealogy.
I am aware that there are many who are entangled in the new age multi-racial cult and will simply not comprehend what I am saying. But I also know that there are good, honest Christian people who have not forsaken the faith of our forefathers who are willing to listen and learn.
There is a clear reason why the genealogy of Christ was given and that was to establish his legal and lawful authority as redeemer and messiah. According to the law given to Israel, if a person was to lose his property through some misfortune he could redeem it. However if he was unable to redeem it then a near of kin could redeem it - not a stranger, but only a near kinsman. This is known as the law of kinsman redeemer.
Israel (The white race - see yesterday's blog) had "sold" themselves by sin to Satan. They could not redeem themselves, no matter how hard they attempted to live righteous lives, they were still sinful creatures. Because we could never redeem ourselves through good works, we needed a redeemer. Jesus Christ was that redeemer and he had the lawful authority to purchase our redemption because he was our kinsman. His genealogy clearly established that!
Here is what one person wrote:
What difference does it make what color Jesus Christ was???? This is so stupid! This is the God's only Son who came down from Heaven so that those who believe in Him may be saved! Jesus endured pain and suffering and died for you so that you may be saved and all you are worried about is what color He was. You are an idiot!
As I stated above there is much attention in the Scriptures dealing with the linage of Christ. If what the person saying above is true, that the race of Jesus Christ means nothing, then why all the fuss. Jesus Christ could just as well been born as a Australian Bushman, in a grass hut to a Pigmy or on the banks of the Amazon River.
There is actually a dual story line throughout the Bible. It deals with the nation of Israel and God's love and protection for his people (again read yesterdays blog or this statement won't make sense) and then it wraps this around the coming of the Messiah and the redemption of these people. This is what connects genealogy, race, redemption and kinsman redeemer together.
One person said that Jesus never favored one race over another. I am sure this person is simply repeating what he or she has heard, but the statement is not Biblically accurate. The New Covenant was clearly given to Israel. Read Hebrews 8. Also read, Matt 10, Matt 15, Luke 2:68-74, Hebrew 6:13-20. There are many other verses also, but I will throw in two more, Psalms 147:19-20, Deut 7. Well, here's another Amos 3:2.
"Somebody stop me!" Matt 1:21, Romans 9:1-5. In fact over 200 times in the Bible, God is identified as the God of Israel (the white race - yes! you need to read yesterday's blog). This does not even count the times he is called the King of Israel, the Salvation of Israel, the Father of Israel, the Redeemer of Israel etc.
The One World Church is powerfully deceptive and it is no wonder that so many people today are traveling down the wide road toward integration and miscegenation.
I gotta run. I am sure that I have said enough to make some people mad at me and others perhaps willing to study the Scriptures a little more.
