The Black Code and Nebuchadnezzar

The 19th century in America was a time of unprecedented injustice, as racism and wrongdoing were represented by the racial enslavement of African people in our country. A series of unofficial laws known as “The Black Code” governed the way white slave owners related with their African slaves. The precepts of the codes would negate basic human rights and remove any civil liberties among the Africans.

Cecil Robeck, historian of American Pentecostalism notes a very interesting observation of this phenomenon:

Think for a moment of Daniel and his friends. King Nebuchadnezzar took them from their native land and made them slaves…[there were things that he did] that most subsequent slaveholders have also found to be useful control mechanisms.

Cecil Robeck Jr.

These are the things:

  • He separated them from their families
  • He changed their names
  • He forced them to learn a new language
  • He attempted to change their cultural patterns
  • He attempted to change their diet in keeping with their new culture
  • And he ultimately ordered them to change their religion by requiring that they bow down to an idol

I thought that the comparison was fascinating.

Robeck writes that, as a result, most African slaves did not know form which African country they came. And these changes have contributed to significantly to questions of identity and self-esteem among many African Americans. The result of these inconceivable evils still bear their fruits today.

So, American white slave owners have succeed in following the Bible. They just followed the wrong guy.

    Man, this is unnervingly fascinating. I simply cannot believe that this happened, and yet I know that it did from my history books. Thank you for brining it out into the open once again. This is a good reminder.

    Phil,
    Thanks for displaying the systemic action plan to conquer God's people that Satan and the descendants of Esau (Caucasus Europeans/heathen nations) have utilized for centuries against the the true Black Hebrew descendants of Judah, the Southern kingdom (three tribes) and the the known Native (ten, minus Dan*) tribes of the Northern kingdom of Israel.

    Most peoples are 'willingly' ignorant of how God dispersed his 'chosen' nation out of his sight and into the 'Americas' and the island nations because of their sin against His holy law(s) – Israel first and Judah second. The 'truth' of who is whom before the Lord God of Israel is most important. The current occupiers of modern day Israel (descendants of Greeks, Romans and Armenians) are not descendants of Abraham.

    To consider the ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom/Israel, please review the 'Apocrypha' and read Second Esdras 13: 32-50; and the Southern Kingdom/Judah (including Judah, Benjamin and Levi) as read in Deuteronomy 28:39-68 (especially the last verse of the chapter, verse 68). Note: we the Black Hebrew slave descendants of the Ashanti Hebrews, taken from the western coast of Africa during the Transatlantic Slave Trade are the only people in history to go into slavery, in a new land by ship!
    Note: All peoples of the world that are not blood descendants of Israel, according to the word of God in the King James Bible, 'must' come worship at the feet the the 'redeemed' of Christ which is 12,000 men of each tribe. The word of God in the Bible is very specific … Judah first, then Israel second, and then those peoples of the world that are willing to follow the same commandments, laws and judgments of the the Lord God of all the Earth and His Christ, the Lord God of Israel. Therefore all that are not Hebrews must work to help to 'restore' the Hebrews (Isaiah 42:22 vs Nehemiah 5:12).
    For god's holy word forbid making a Hebrew a slave forever. You could only keep a Hebrew man or woman a slave for just six years and offer them their freedom on year seven (Exodus 21:1-6).

    Note: For the sins of my Hebrew forefathers (for which we true Hebrews of Israel are required/commanded by God to repent thereof) did the Lord put our people, Black Hebrews again into bondage/'Egypt'/slavery in strange, far away lands, with people of different tongues. And our brethren, the Natives (so called Indians) that the Lord forewarned that if they fail to keep His holy laws in the new world, they would be destroyed to nothing. And white Americans along with the Spanish destroyed the bountiful Indians from Alaska, Canada, the US mainland, Mexico, Mid and South America down to nothing but poor independent nations with colonial favor in dictatorships; and diseased and alcohol laden reservations in the USA!

    I will conclude with the judgment of God against those that do wrong and take advantage of the poor and His people to cause you to fear His Christ:
    -Matthew 25:40
    And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

    -Mark 9:42
    And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea

    -Hebrews 10:29
    Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

    – Luke 19:27
    But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.

    -Revelation 13:10
    He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

    -Malachi 1:14
    But cursed be the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the LORD a corrupt thing: for I am a great King, saith the LORD of hosts, and my name is dreadful among the heathen.

    -Galatians 6:7
    Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

    Note: We all must repent of our sins. But, you must have knowledge of who are from and what the Lord God of Israel required of His people and what he required/commanded to the rest of the world to be 'Holy'!

    There is much more to prepare for the 'Judgment' seat of Christ, but it all is tied directly to these most important areas of who is first, second and last before the Lord God of Israel and His Son the Christ, the Lord God of all souls on the earth, dead and alive!

    Correction:
    The current occupiers of modern day Israel (descendants of Greeks, Romans and Armenians) are not descendants of Abraham.

    Note: They are the descendants of Abraham, but are not the descendants of Jacob/Israel. The white occupiers of the land of Israel today are of Edom/Esau. They are still our Black Hebrew 'brethren', but have to meet the condition of repentance, that today they have failed to 'restore' according to the word of God. Likewise, God's chosen people, even today, as a 'whole' , have not returned from the 'idols' of the oppressor, to serve the Lord God with a pure heart, but love falsehood and smooth things, which God found abominable! God's chosen people have failed, even as today to fulfill second Chronicles 7:14.
    But, the word of God rewards the gentiles/heathen nations that if they 'restore' God's chosen people (Isaiah 5:7
    For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.)

      I think that you are seriously misled.

    This 'tweet' post from yesterday, is not the word of God. Therefore it is not accurate, nor the 'truth'.
    Here it is:
    Men are the bride of Christ and women are the sons of God. It's not about gender-it's about our identity and position in the Lord. 1 day ago

    Note: The only men that Christ can 'redeem' are the men/males that bare the 'mark' of God in their foreheads …
    -Ezekiel 9:6
    Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.

    Note: These men will have kept the 'royal' commandment (Leviticus 19:18; James 2:8) of the law of God by being perfect (Matthew 5:48) in two areas of righteousness/ being 'one' with the Law of God … in order to be 'righteous' before the Lord in order to 'qualify' to be an acceptable/Holy bride before Christ.
    1. Revelation 2:24
    But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.
    2. Revelation 14:1-5
    1And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.

    2And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:

    3And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.

    4These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.

    5And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

    Note: in verse four, only the 'men' that are not defiled with women/females, shall be acceptable to be 'redeemed' by Christ the Lord, because that is what God ordered for Christ in Leviticus 21: 9-15. Therefore if those men continue to keep themselves unspotted from the world and bring forth the 'fruit worthy of repentance', then those men will be His bride, for they are 'worthy' according to the scriptures

    And NO! women cannot be males, therefore they cannot be 'sons'.

    Christ the Lord's flock is not women, but men …
    -Ezekiel 34:31
    And ye my flock, the flock of my pasture, are men, and I am your God, saith the Lord GOD.

    And His chosen 'men' are of the house of Judah (today Black descendants of slaves of the Ashanti Hebrews that resided on the West coast of Africa; but our forefathers migrated there fleeing Roman persecution in 70 a.d.

    -Isaiah 5:7
    For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.

    Q: Why did the Lord God remove 'women/females' from the Law of God (their knowledge of the commandments of God to be Holy and women's ability to understand and 'reason-why' God's laws are 'Holy'?

    Q: Why do women in the Western hemisphere break God's holy law every second of everyday, instead of 'FEARING' the Lord?

    Again, women are NOT 'sons of God', when you are commanded to be a Daughter of Sarah …

    -1 Peter 3:6
    Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement

    Q: Have you women met the conditions to be worthy to be called a Daughter of Sarah?

    Further consideration that women cannot be 'sons of God …

    -1 Corinthians 14:33-36

    King James Version (KJV)

    33For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

    34Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law.

    35And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

    36What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?

    Note: Verse 35 makes it clear, that women before God do not hold the same responsibility, nor authority before Him as do men. But, men can be cut off from the Lord because the are joined to a woman rejected of the Lord (Jeremiah 6:30; Ecclesiastes 7:26); but a woman is not cut off from the Lord because of her husband's failure before the Lord.

    Note: being in charge, is not all fun and games before the Lord God!!

    Note: Only one woman is covered under the 'New Covenant' of the Lord God in her earthly father's name.

    Note: But God's word warned 'mothers' that they would fail to raise women to remain 'virgins'!
    Note: All women are commanded by the word of God to remain virgins both in body and spirit until they die or get married.

    Last Note: God never called a woman to be His servant. Only 'men' has God ever called to go perform and do His pleasure. Nor did God command women to 'please' Him … but, he did command 'men' to please Him …

    1 Corinthians 7:32-34

    King James Version (KJV)

    32But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord:

    33But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.

    34There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.

    Note: Verse 32 men have to 'please' the Lord; women, you just have to keep something that you are born with … your virginity!

    and in verse 29, the married man is required to do the same service before the Lord as the unmarried man – good luck!
