Our Jewish heritage.
Chapter 10: For the love of Moses.
Individuals like myself love to glorify God, and carry his laws to heart. I wish I had the strength to practice my religion peacefully, but since this is a warzone, and bitter times, I leave my wishes with you.
Thank Heaven for Moses! Ah sacred Moses! If it were not for him, we would all be savage heathens! My point is: Once you get closer to Jesus, and the Father as a friend, you will learn to love Moses, and God`s law just as Jesus did. You are a disciple. You walk the path under master Jesus. Being a disciple means becoming like your master. It is the very meaning of this word`s original context.
Remember. Jesus says ¨I am the way, the truth, and the life.¨ But many forget the next verse. ¨Nobody comes to the Father without me.¨ The Father is the goal! He is what completes your journey! Learning to love the father means learning to love Moses. Ah. Now that we are saved through Jesus, there is even MORE joy, and love for upholding the sacred law as our hearts rejoice in salvation! In this: Masters become fathers themselves. God.
One can ask oneself what Moses would have done if he returned, and saw how we eat artificial, and gene-modified food with all the toxins like preservatives, artificial sweeteners, pesticides, etc..
Worst is the pollution of the human genome through GMO, as well as the chemicals that give us cancer which many are unaware of! Remember that the body is the temple. The temple of God. YOU are a part of God: The holy shekinah. I don`t think Moses would have been a hypocrite jew, and said it`s ok, ¨just sell it to the heathens.¨ He would have been very strict with you:
To keep yourselves holy. This also goes for diet. Please pray over, and completely abstain from eating ¨food¨ that`s bad for you:
- Gene-modified corn, and other unholy GMO that are unhealthy, unnatural, and all that damages the human genes.
- Pig. (the food they feed pigs is polluted these days. They also vaccine them.)
- Neuro-toxins, cancer causes, dangerous vaccines, and bad medicine.
- Dangereous food additives like aspartame, and unhealthy artificial sweeteners.
- Dangerous pesticides as on f.i apples.
- Also try to avoid eating, and mingling with goyim too much.
- Put up Mezuzah on the doorposts. Especially if in a battlefield. This commandment still counts.
- And keep the sabbath, and Jewish holidays, NOT the Babylonian holidays like Easter (Ishtar) , or the Roman Saturnalia (Christmas). The sabbath is Friday evening from 18.00 – 18.00 Saturday, but was originally based on the phazes of the moon.
- I tell you, but you should already know this. Stay away from unclean thoughts, sex, and bathe a lot. Take a shower, pray your daily prayers, put on a prayer-shawl, tzitzit, and learn your lesson of PURITY. You will feel A LOT better.
Both Jew, and Christian should stand for healthy organic, un-sprayed food. I think it is better to eat green and fish.
Solomon addressed the hedonistic, post-modern pitfall of this age three thousand years before our time. We believe the world needs a spiritual law, and that keeping the tradition alive is necessary. What is better than laws? If we didn`t have them: All would wonder what they were.
Remember. Jesus never says the mosaic law is undone. Although I follow replacement theology, and believe the Christians are the real Jews, there are still blessings through the Mosaic covenant, and the Abrahamic covenant. With every covenant comes a blessing, but it`s all weighed after the heart. Some would argue that the 4 laws by Peter is according to their time alone, and that there is much we Christians have to learn from messianic Jews.
Messianic jews according to themselves
What is the difference between messianic jews, and christians in practice?
Messianic Jews observe traditional Jewish holidays such as Purim and Chanukah, the ninth of Av and the Ten Days of Awe.
· Messianic Jews observe the biblical feasts such as the Feasts of Trumpets, Tabernacles and Passover.
· Messianic Jews worship on the biblical sabbath, i.e., Friday evening till Saturday.
· Messianic Jews chant the Sh'ma, the kiddush and motzi, the Aaronic benediction, Etz Chaim, and many other parts of traditional Jewish liturgy.
· Messianic Jews say kaddish for those who have passed on.
· Messianic Jews cant the Torah portion in Hebrew at worship services.
· Messianic Jews bar mitzvah their sons and bat mitzvah their daughters.
· Messianic preaching is mainly from the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh), although references to the B'rit Chadasha (New Covenant) are not unusual.
· Messianic Judaism emphasizes the special relationship between G-d and the Jewish people.
· Messianic Judaism emphasizes Jewish traditions that do not conflict with the Bible.
· Messianic Jews understand that G-d never changed the way to obtain salvation: "And Abraham believed G-d and it was credited to him [Abraham] as righteousness." The purpose of following the Torah (often mistranslated "Law", but literally, "teaching") always has been to live holy, not to obtain salvation.
· Messianic Judaism asserts that the Torah (literally, "teaching") is still in effect (as modified by Yeshua).
· Messianic Judaism teaches the biblical doctrine that salvation is a free gift from G-d, by faith in the atoning work of His Messiah.
· Messianic Jews only baptize those who have accepted Messiah (no infant baptism) and baptize by immersion only (no sprinkling or pouring).
Messianic jews believe the Mosaic law is a sacred practice, but not a way to obtain salvation. They love God so much they chose to please him through observance. This is the true doctrine of Jesus, and those called. Many messianic jews keep the kosher laws even though they are not necessary to obtain salvations as Acts 10 reveals.
For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
I generally believe that these are the Mitzvot (mosaic law) that still count in the New Covenant for messianic jews, or at least I list them. In fact: These are all the Mitzvot any (orthodox) Jew would follow. I do not follow these myself. But I guess I would have had I not been persecuted, and were free to cultivate my roots and soul. I have always sought to live a monastic life cultivating what I call ¨soil and soul¨; focusing on the afterlife. Seeking God in nature is what I love.
The 613 Mosaic Commandments (Mitzvot)

4. To hallow G-d's name (Lev. 22:32) (CCA5). See The Name of G-d.
5. Not to profane G-d's name (Lev . 22:32) (CCN155). See The Name of G-d.

12. To learn Torah and to teach it (Deut. 6:7) (CCA14). See Torah.
13. To cleave to those who know Him (Deut. 10:20) (the Talmud states that cleaving to scholars is equivalent to cleaving to Him) (CCA16).
14. Not to add to the commandments of the Torah, whether in the Written Law or in its interpretation received by tradition (Deut. 13:1) (CCN159). See Torah.
15. Not to take away from the commandments of the Torah (Deut. 13:1) (CCN160). See Torah.
16. That every person shall write a scroll of the Torah for himself (Deut. 31:19) (CCA15). See Torah.
Signs and Symbols
17. To circumcise the male offspring (Gen. 17:12; Lev. 12:3) (CCA47) See Brit Milah: Circumcision.

21. To affix the mezuzah to the doorposts and gates of your house (Deut. 6:9) (CCA12). See Mezuzah.
* There is discussion over the subject of tefilin due to the correlation of Exodus 13:16, and Revelations 13:16. Regarding the beast. My personal interpretation is that it is a warning for jews not to put the faith in salvation in the law before Jesus, and that it`s Saturn worship as not to live under the law, but live Jesus; free to do the law. I personally am not a master (yet) , and do not follow the old covenant other than a slight reform judaism. I think it is a warning that judaism will become a beast system of a jewish antichrist proclaiming to be God. But that has not yet happened.

The vision of a northern Israel:
During the year of 2012; I had several angelic encounters with my archangel Gabriel, and Jesus who showed me strange visions always relating to the same theme. The first vision I had was of three swords, and ambers uniting. The ice of the Scandinavian people melted, and a great freedom was heard. A new social waveform of love erupted as fire. The second vision was of the courtyard directly in front of Solomon`s temple. The Lord showed me how I was an important rock in his Temple. This was in Sweden on a mighty spiritual journey with dear Christian friends. The third was when at home in my cabin. I heard God speak to me saying: Lead my sheep my son. The fourth was in my apartment in Kristiansand. I saw the world, and the Bible opened hovering over Norway. A fire burnt from it, and the ice melted. Below it was written: Burn Babylon. The fifth vision was of Virgin Mary crying under the moon. Her tears became 12 stars of Israel.. She cried for me, and I saw the tears gather as yellow stars under the banner of the EU. I saw how the flag of Israel merged with the world.
Mother Mary cries for us- her lost children!
Yair Davidiy whom supports Israel has shown unrelenting will to research the mythological origins of western tribes from Israel as if he was sent by God.
I own his books, and they are packed with unquestionable evidence the ten northern tribes of Israel wandered throughout the world to Scandinavia. These Cadussi Nephtalites (also known as the little-goths, and white huns) moved into Schythia, and southern Russia from west of the black sea to east of the caspian sea. The rest of the emmigration to Scandinavia is taught in norwegian primary school.
Norway as Naphtali
Yair`s book the ¨Ten Tribes¨ resurface history, and location of all the ten tribes based on history, science, lingnuistics, archeology, scripture and prophecy, yet quotes this about the norwegian naphtalites in particular:
¨The tribes of Ruben, Gad, and Manasseh (from whom emerged most of the gothic nations) in the east banks of Jordan had been borderen by Dan, and Naphtali who were to the west of them. NAPHTALI were to re-emerge under the same name Naphtali (sometimes incorrectly rendered as ¨EPHTALI¨) in Schythia¨. The Naphtali were also known as Cadussi or ¨Kadassaye¨ in honour of Kadesh-Naphtali Judges 4:6
She sent for Barak son of Abinoam from Kedesh in Naphtali and said to him, “The Lord, the God of Israel, commands you: ‘Go, take with you ten thousand men of Naphtali and Zebulun and lead them up to Mount Tabor.
Which had been there former center in the land of Israel. The Cadussi had first been recorded close to Mannae southwest of the Caspian sea. The area was one of the major regions to which Northern Israelites had been transported by the Assyrians. The apocryphal book of Tobias mentions Israelite exiles from the tribe of Naphtali in Ecbatana (Tobit 2:7) and Rages of Media (Tobit 5:6) both of which adjoined the Cadussii area! Pliny reported that the Cadussi termed themselves ¨Gaeli¨. The Cadussi-Gaeli were related to the Sacae Scythians according to Xenophon. (We identify the Sacae Schythians as ancestors of the Angles, and Saxons who invaded Britain). The Cadussi (or Kadussi) later moved northwards into Scythia east of the Ural mountains where they were also referred to as Naphtalites or nephtalite Huns thought some sources still referred to them as Kadassaye I.e Cadussie. After a series of wars and migrations the Cadussi Nephtalites (also known as ¨White Huns¨ and sundry other names) split up into several groups. The majority went westward, and entered Scandinavia to form what later became the Danes and Norwegians. Another portion remained in Schythia to eventually merge with the Khazars who converted to Judaism.¨ /
The Bible says the lost tribes shall be gathered
I have walked a solitary mystic path with God since I was young getting visions of my future, and His calling all my life. I was open to God. I would battle demons in my dreams, and waking fantasies wherever I walked. I wonder if they were fantasies at all. Thus I come to you humbled like the reluctant prophet Jonah with an urge towards repentance. God WILL create a new loving mantle over those in this generation reserved for Him. There IS inherited blessing for God`s purpose with this nation waiting for those he will set aside as a remnant of Israel. He will create a ¨new man¨ of love, courage, chivalry and strength. He will trample on the serpents, and lead the people out of ice, and into joy. I could see a free people covered with white clothes walking among the rest. These are those reserved for our ministry of Israel. The Holy Lord will pour out his prophetic spirit of interceding worship, and reserved holiness upon this nation.
It is written in the Bible that all tribes shall be gathered again. We see the importance of our ministry when humanistic graeco-roman-judeo-christian culture of the west is at threat: Europe is at threat! Israel is at threat! By whom? The heretic Islam! Anyways. How amazing to discover we are living in the prophetic fulfillment of biblical scripture! For whenever the enemy raises his sword, God will answer, and protect us more mightily. Today is the day your European-Israeli ancestors rejoice as you take up your TRUE viking heritage as YOU become a part of our ministry; our culture which will never die; for we are God`s eternally chosen people. Our history, and heritage is so true, so eternal, so large, and so eternal that if Islam so floods us, we will stand firm. This is the biblical purpose with Norway of our time! The return to Israel!
And it shall come to pass on that day, that the Lord will set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people, that shall remain from Assyria, and from Egypt and from Pathros and from Kush and from Eklam and from Shinar and from Hamath and from the islands of the sea.
And he shall set up an ensign for the nations and will assemble the dispersed of Israel and gather together the scattered of Judah from the four corners of the Earth.
"The days are coming, 'declares the LORD,' when I will bring my people Israel and Judah back from captivity and restore them to the land I gave their ancestors to possess," says the LORD.
"For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land."
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
I will be found by you," declares the LORD, "And will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you," declares the LORD, "And will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile."
For the Israelites will live many days without king or prince, without sacrifice or sacred stones, without ephod or household gods.
Afterward the Israelites will return and seek the LORD their God and David their king. They will come trembling to the LORD and to his blessings in the last days.
Moreover, the Lord says, “Sing for joy for the descendants of Jacob. Utter glad shouts for that foremost of the nations. Make your praises heard. Then say, ‘Lord, rescue your people. Deliver those of Israel who remain alive.’Then I will reply, ‘I will bring them back from the land of the north. I will gather them in from the distant parts of the earth. Blind and lame people will come with them, so will pregnant women and women about to give birth. A vast throng of people will come back here. 32:37 ‘I will certainly regather my people from all the countries where I will have exiled them in my anger, fury, and great wrath. I will bring them back to this place and allow them to live here in safety.
Revelations 7:1-17 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth so no wind could blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, who had the seal of the living God. He shouted out with a loud voice to the four angels who had been given permission to damage the earth and the sea: “Do not damage the earth or the sea or the trees until we have put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.” Now I heard the number of those who were marked with the seal, one hundred and forty-four thousand, sealed from all the tribes of the people of Israel: From the tribe of Judah, twelve thousand were sealed, from the tribe of Reuben, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Gad, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Asher, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Naphtali, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Manasseh, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Simeon, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Levi, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Issachar, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Zebulun, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Joseph, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Benjamin, twelve thousand were sealed. After these things I looked, and here was an enormous crowd that no one could count, made up of persons from every nation, tribe, people, and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb dressed in long white robes, and with palm branches in their hands. They were shouting out in a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God, to the one seated on the throne, and to the Lamb!” And all the angels stood there in a circle around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they threw themselves down with their faces to the ground before the throne and worshiped God, saying, “Amen! Praise and glory, and wisdom and thanksgiving, and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!” Then one of the elders asked me, “These dressed in long white robes – who are they and where have they come from?” So I said to him, “My lord, you know the answer.” Then he said to me, “These are the ones who have come out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb! For this reason they are before the throne of God, and they serve him day and night in his temple, and the one seated on the throne will shelter them. They will never go hungry or be thirsty again, and the sun will not beat down on them, nor any burning heat, because the Lamb in the middle of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to springs of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps. They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth. These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the throne of God.
We believe the timeframe of this gathering is now, and that God will physically gather the 144.000 lost tribes on Earth, and not only in Heaven as this is our mission to make the world a better place.
It is a great, and important part of ministry to know we live in the of fulfillment that the prophets spoke of when the exiled ten northern tribes of the northern kingdom of Israel shall return. It is our most important mission to be a worldwide tabernackle of Heaven on Earth!
I believe we are growing back together unto the olive-tree of Israel as we all take part in the blessings through Abraham, and heritage from jews to stand united as a new world. What other worldwide culture should we chose from? Humanism? Atheism? Satanism? Only judeo-christendom is true, and has the oldest, and greatest historical, and cultural value. It is truly as in Israel`s national anthem. ¨The Hope.¨ Only the enlightened will realize this.
Still: God forbids the creation of a new Babylon. We are to be separate tribes, and keep our ethnographic individuality: But all will unite through what must be taught as universal morale, and history at every school in the world: Israel, it`s Noahide laws, and it`s history. Not the false history of Islam.
Great powers are working to wash the truth of Biblical judeo-christian history with corrupt modern science. But the evidence is there. Solomon existed, and the jews crossed the Red Sea. Giants existed, and the Israelites defeated them. Jesus existed, and he died on a cross. All these truths are under severe attack.
All must protect Israel, and become spiritual jews! The blood of Abraham has spread all over Earth. Israel will unite black, white, yellow and red. Amen.
The reality that we have the ability to test ancestry through dna samples is another prophetic fulfillment coming closer to the peaceful universal Israel when messiah Ben David returns, after-which there shall be peace on earth forever. Isaiah 9.
Jews of today.
The scripture is clear about the return of the jews to Israel, as well as the rediscovery of the long lost tribes. We know from dna tests that most of the khazarian jews share common ancestry with sephardic mizrahi jews where 99% of those tested shared a common ancestor believed to be Levi the priest. We recon the askenazi tribe as being the spiritual tribe of Judah although only a fragment of them are Judah by heritage.
We know from linguistics, culture, names of landmarks, countries, dna, and archeological discoveries that the lost tribes wandered up to the area surrounding Turkey, and the Black Sea. Among these where the danes. These emmigrated northwards. They gave names to places like the rived Donau, Denmark etc. (Danmark is the Danish word, and Donau was called Danau.) The druidic religion of Europa share stunning linguistic, ritualistic, astrological, and sacred-day similarities with the tradition of the pagan danite Israel who wandered up north. The Danes are the reason we have the red, and white colours of Denmark and America. These colours belonged to the tribe of Dan. Dan is situated to the north, as fulfilled by their settlement in Scandinavia.
Numbers 2:25 ¨On the north will be the divisions of the camp of Dan under their standard. The leader of the people of Dan is Ahiezer son of Ammishaddai. ¨
The english population have strong semite traits to our day, especially with their long noses, and egg-like sculls.
We know that the emperors of Japan have artifacts e.g a mirror with hebrew letters on it as they unofficially trace their royal lineage to Israel.
The location of the arc of the covenant
We also know from dna findings that the ethiopian jews, as well as the Lemba tribe stem from the common jewish ancestor we believe to be Levi the Priest. Both tribes tell tales of being led out of Israel, and holy tools of the 1st Temple are still being kept by the Ethiopians! These are descendant of Levi and Judah.
Many conspiracy theorists claim that about 90%, or one million jews migrated southward into Africa after the destruction of the second temple in 71 AD. They further claim these settled in the lands where slavetrade shipped them over to America: Thus making the africans part of the tribe of Judah specifically. There is much evidence to support this.
The arc of the covenant as revealed in ¨the sign and the seal by Graham Hancock¨ proves that it almost certainly resides in Ethiopia. The ¨Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church¨ claims their ¨Our Lady Mary of Zion¨ church contains the arc of the covenant, which is under heavy guardianship by soldiers who often die shortly after assignment due to cancer or cataract. This proves the ancient thesis of this egyptian high-tech arc to be a relic weapon from a lost age, as it has powerful, dangerous radiation which kills all who guard it. There were many ¨arcs¨ made by Egypt`s high tech. Just check it out on google. Is it not strange that in the Indiana Jones movie ¨Raiders of the Lost Arc¨; we have nazis after the arc of the covenant! These were the teutonic knights templar which we trace ourselves from.
Is the holy Arc of the Covenant with the relics of Moses, and Aaron inside this church?!
Nazi and askenazi – two sides of the same coin?
The term nazi was given by jews to describe new-national germans. Both askenazi jews, and nazis are racially imperialistic.. Both have the term ¨nazi.¨ Many believe the teutonic knights secretly believed they were the new Israel, and we know Hitler had jewish ancestry. The American involvement in WW1 started after England promised Palestine to America. The jewish-owned newsmedia in America turned from pro-german to pro England over night; deciding the outcome of WW1. The jews betrayed their german homeland in favor for Zionism. The state of Israel was established shortly after WW2 by the Belford declaration. Nathan Rothschild…
Israel`s destiny now lies in our hands. For good or worse. It is the questionmark, and sign of our time. Especially in the media. The magog prophecies tell it will be destroyed. It also tells it will return some generations after. It is the biblical progression of our time which must be answered by repentance to God, and a return to the judeo-christian values and tradition NOW, or else there will be a third world war.
All must inherit Israel`s knowledge, history, and blessings as a one world united. As a common cultural-historical heritage. Noahide laws. Love and light. Jews, and christians must come together. A new crusade must begin: Bringing the gospel back to where it started: Israel. I recommend you read my book: How Jesus was the messiah. God speaks this to prophets from all over the world, and chinese christians are especially supportive of this last crusade.
Will YOU do your duty, and run your marathon? It would be better to stand up before war breaks out, and embrace the revival-renaissance. The world will inevitably be one, and the jews stand firm in belief that Israel will be the global center. If we were to choose a global culture; what could be richer, and more humanistic than the judeo-christian values of the Noahide? Embrace the everlasting culture, and save your own at the same time. This road can`t go wrong. You can be a nationalist, and an Israelite at the same time. Israel is a nationalist country themselves! Start wearing hats. That alone should solve the ¨immigration problems¨.
We must be a stronghold, and outpost on the moralistic end of the gap between us, and the heathen outpost. I deem both conservatives, and liberals as necessary for balanced equlibrium as we need both for the survival of graeco-roman UN humanistic values, and a world safe from medieval Islam. God bless the faithful Jews. I tend to support those living in Israel, not those who live in America.
We must all build villages for preservation of national colours, cultivation of national culture, and preservation of our religion`s history, traditions, ethics, morale, chivalry, and primarily enlightening knowledge. Our goal is to obtain all knowledge, and then distribute it freely to the masses. The mission of those called to this is living the monastic, godly life of goodness, caring, loving and evangelizing. Their mission is social-anthropology, entrepreneurship, getting rich, building the kingdom as described in our objectives, starting churches, civilizing, and enlightening.
God is clear in his word. The lost tribes will come back, and I here have them all identified after years of research:
Respective tribes by nation and birthdate.
Ephraim – Brittain
Manasseh – USA
Reuben – France
Simeon – Scattered – Yet we know of Wales and Eire
Levi – Scattered with the sephardim, mizrahim, and Ethiopians jews who guard their supposed arc of the covenant. Some say african Lemba tribe jews, and nigerian ibo jews.
Jehudah – Sephardim, and mizrahim jews, perhaps some of the previously mentioned african jews, the royals of the Priory of Europe, and Teutonic Knights, as well as the royalty of Japan as seen through their relic mirror hebrew letters. European noble families with crests of lions are generally believed to be related to King David.
Issachar – Swiss and Fins
Zebulon – Netherlands
Gad – Sweden
Asher – Ireland
Benjamin – With the jews
Dan – Danes, Celts and America. (Red, and white are Dan`s colours.)
Naphtali – Norwegians
That`s right! We norwegians are Naphtali. The week I was adopted into the family by two swedish jews who revealed I was called into judaism as Naphtali, God spoke clearly to me in visions showing me how the viking-ships of jewish tribes sailed North. He showed me how these Danes knew of their Israeli tribal heritage, and that God blessed them as they dedicated their land to their tribe. I also saw more deer that week than in any other in my life, and my alternative parents can confirm this. The deer is the sacred animal to Naphtali. I am from the tribe of Naphtali and Judah.

For people not prove their ancestry through dna, or are from another country than those above, I offer this Rastafarian list to chose from:
Order and Compassion
It is written that in the last days all tribes shall be gathered again.
The only possible meaning is that there will be a ONE CHRISTIAN WORLD! The new Jerusalem.
