Tabernacles 2015 Sukkot 5776

October 2015.

We have handed in to the authorities in Israel right before Tabernacles 2015/Tishri 5776 the signed petition of The Etz Yoseph Project to obtain DNA from Jacob and Joseph. The signers have received the update of their talk in action and will continue to receive them as these develops.

As we wait for the final proof, there are many things to do in our search for the 12 tribes of Israel by DNA and blessings given in the Torah. We still do not know with facts which Haplogroup was Jacob and his 12 sons. But trying to identify the genetic markers, we will concentrate in the following theories:

I. Hypothesis: J2 are the biological descendants of Yaacov:

Remember that each of us have four grandparents and most of you have tested the genetic markers in only one of those lines, the paternal grandfather. But you may have received the genes from the J2 from your paternal grandmother’s dad, or from the maternal grandfather or the maternal grandfather’s dad. Even though you may not be J2 on your Y-chromosome you still receive genes from the other 3 branches out of four of your grandparents.

In my case for example, if you check “Witness account of one that continued to “Shema” the voice of her genes” at:

http://etzyoseph.org/shema-to-your-genes-voice-part-ii/

that example is personal. I did not find the J2 in two of my grandparents, a third one I was not able to check but in the fourth one I finally found it in the paternal grandmother’s dad.

Similar story happened with my husband’s Y-Chromosome. His paternal grandfather was not J2 and he was only able to check a second grandparent, his maternal grandmother’s dad, and he was J2 as expected.

Once we found the J2 (if it can be proven that the J2 are the biological descendants of Yaacov), it was easier to explain our feelings towards the Jewish people even thou we never grew up close to any of them… The attraction for the Israeli’s music, culture, language, dance, sound of the shofar made sense to us then.

So what can you do? Test the males in the other three branches of your grandparents that have not been tested yet.

II. Hypothesis: The E1b, G, R1b, R1a, Q, T, I  Y-haplogroups that we find in order of most frequency among the Jews in Israel and in Jewish groups around the world are converts to Judaism.

As we have said, if you are a descendant of the multitudes of The Exodus that converted to Judaism during the exodus 3,500 years ago, let’s say that your Y-haplogroup was E1b, you will not know that your ancestors converted to Judaism…Actually your genetic memory will be of exposure to Jewish culture and the Torah, the Hebrew language, the dance and the shofar will call your attention just like if you were a biological descendant of Jacob. It has been over 3,000 years of ancestors exposed to Judaism on and off…Right?

The Bible states, that there is no difference between the Born Israelite and the alien convert to worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob… So this is actually the way Abba Father looks at us:

Ezekiel 47: 22 You are to allot it as an inheritance for yourselves and for the aliens who have settled among you and who have children. You are to consider them as native-born Israelites; along with you they are to be allotted an inheritance among the tribes of Israel.

Galatians 3:28 “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Messiah Yeshua…”

So, why try to find the biological descendants of Jacob, if there is no difference with the alien that is grafted in the tree of Israel?

Answer: For the alien grafted in the tree of  Israel needs to know the biological descendants of Jacob to JOIN their tribes, even if both will be exactly the same with the same rights etc.

Ezekiel 47:22 tells us this, just like Revelation 7 and 14 speaks of the identified 12 tribes of Israel that follow Messiah wherever He goes!

It is as usual the Sacred Scriptures that gives us the answers to the essential questions of life.

In the Jewish culture, once you went through the rituals of converting to Judaism with a Rabbi by immersion in water and circumcision you become a Jew. But there is sometimes the question to the convert from the Jewish human authorities : Are you really a Jew?

And they prohibited the marriage of a Jew to a non-Jew, based on Deuteronomy 7:3

Deuteronomy 7:1-4

1 When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations–the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, seven nations larger and stronger than you–

2 and when the LORD your God has delivered them over to you and you have defeated them, then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy.

3 Do not intermarry with them. Do not give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons, 

4 for they will turn your sons away from following me to serve other gods, and the LORD’s anger will burn against you and will quickly destroy you.

http://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/148995/jewish/On-Intermarriage.htm

The Talmud (Yevamot 23a) points out – and Rashi quotes it in his commentary on the aforementioned verse – that from the precise expression of the verse (he-and not she- will lead your son astray) we can derive two things. In the event that your daughter marries “their son,” he will eventually lead astray your sons (in other words, your grandchildren, who will still be considered your sons) from the path of the Torah. In the event that your son will marry their daughter, her children are no longer considered your children, but her children. They are not considered Jewish.

Judaism generalized the prohibition of a Jew marrying a non-Jew to the whole world, even though Abba is very specific about these 7 nations that lived in Canaan, the land that would belong to Israel, before the Exodus from Egypt.

Bible examples of non-Jews marrying with Jews: What about Rahab the prostitute of Jericho?

Joshua 6:25  But Joshua spared Rahab the prostitute, with her family and all who belonged to her, because she hid the men Joshua had sent as spies to Jericho–and she lives among the Israelites to this day.

She also married with the Jews and is listed as the grandmother of Boaz from the tribe of Judah.

Matthew 1:5 Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab, Boaz the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth, Obed the father of Jesse,

Boaz married Ruth, a Moabite (non-Jew) that also married into Judaism and became the grandmother of King David and one of the ancestors of King Hezekiah and Yeshua:

  • Ruth 4:10 10 I have also acquired Ruth the Moabitess, Mahlon’s widow, as my wife, in order to maintain the name of the dead with his property, so that his name will not disappear from among his family or from the town records. Today you are witnesses!”
  • Ruth 4:13 13 So Boaz took Ruth and she became his wife. Then he went to her, and the LORD enabled her to conceive, and she gave birth to a son.
  • Matthew 1:55 Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab, Boaz the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth, Obed the father of Jesse,

What about the 25,000 Jewish male slaves that were taken by Rome back to Italy during the destruction of the 2nd Temple in the year 70 AC.? All these Jewish males married women from the Roman Empire in Europe and some converted to Judaism becoming the strongest matriarchs in the Ashkenazi Jewish culture of the time.

The point of all this is to show that in Judaism, if you married a convert, your children and grandchildren will be the last to know that they have blood from the gentile world, because it has been looked down upon by Rabbis, and the people do not read their own Tanak (Bible) that would have told them there was no difference between the convert and the Israelite born!.. and the saddest part is that in general they do not know their own Messiah that would have explain all these misunderstandings to them.

So they would not know that their ancestors were converts to Judaism after the third generation and certainly the fourth. Antisemitism and persecution of the Jews through out centuries does not help either. Some Jews left Judaism and did not want their children to know the origin of their ancestors.

Jacob lived about 4,000 years ago and we had many converts to worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Yaakov, since then. For example the Bible speaks of the multitudes of the Exodus:

Exodus 12:38 A mixed multitude went up with them also, and flocks and herds–a great deal of livestock.

ISRAEL2015873

Wandering in the desert for 40 years the multitude of the Exodus.

 or the Persians that converted to Judaism in  Esther 8.

Esther 8:17 And in every province and city, wherever the king’s command and decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a holiday. Then many of the people of the land became Jews, because fear of the Jews fell upon them.

If we have 4-5 generations every 100 years, then that would be 120-160 generations that have passed. Who would know if their ancestors were biological descendants of Yaakov or not?

To make matters worse there was a King Herod that lived at the time of the birth of Yeshua of Nazareth, that even though he was considered one of the greatest engineers of history, as he embellished the second temple and many other constructions attributed to him still survive in Israel. King Herod was of Arab (Nabatean) and Edomite descent, whose ancestors converted to Judaism. He was a Hasmonean and only the descendants of the tribe of Judah should become Kings of Israel.

Genesis 49: 10 The scepter {KINGSHIP} shall not depart from Judah, Nor a lawgiver from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.

According to the first century Historian  Josephus, reports that King Herod had the archives at Sepphoris destroyed, lest any rivals challenge his pedigree or put forth their own. …The Archives of Sepporis contained the public records of genealogy of the inhabitants of Israel.  This happened at the time that Yeshua comes to earth, and people in Israel still had memories of which tribes their ancestors belonged to, so we see in the Gospel of Matthew and Luke the genealogy of Yeshua coming from the tribe of Judah.

As we can see, trying to find the biological descendants of Yaacov is a difficult task but not impossible for the God of Abraham, Isaac and Yaacov.

I truly believe based on the Holy Scriptures and evidence in history that part of the plan of Abba Father to bring humanity into belief was to marry the descendants of Jacobs with the gentiles, so they too would come into the fold.

Even more, I think that it is harder for a “pure” descendant of Jacob to see his Messiah based on Isaiah.

Isaiah 6:10  “Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.”

Once the Jew mixes with the gentile, it is easier for the J2 to see and hear what is written in the Word of our Heavenly Father… There are many cases that J2 does see and hear but usually they would have passed through such tremendous trauma in their lives and there is a believer waiting to catch him/her.

So what to do if my paternal Y-haplogroup is E1b, G, R1b, R1a, Q, T, I  ? Or any other Y-chromosome haplogroup? Believe and continue to search for evidence that what I just exposed & might be true, continue the DNA search for the biological descendants in your ancestors.

III. If we’ve already found the J2 in our ancestors, then we have the opportunity to look further into the sub-groups.

Family tree DNA has come up with a panel of genetic markers to test all the SNPs, single nucleotide polymorphism, of the sub-groups of the J2 Y-chromosome haplogroup.

Five members of Etz Yoseph that are Y-Chromosome haplogroup J2 have ordered the panel of SNPs of Y-haplogroup J2. Since J2 is the most common haplogroups among the living Jews today, there is hope that we may find genetic markers of some of the biological tribes of Israel in them.

So what can you do if you’ve already found the J2 in your ancestors? Do the panel of SNP’s of J2 to see if we can take a glimpse at the biological tribe’s descendants of Jacob.

IV. Comments on Sukkot 5776

  1.  We heard a lot about the Shemita, Elul 29, the last day where accounts are reckoned in the Bible. In the 29 of Elul of the year 2001 there was a collapse of the stock market….Then again in the Shemita of 2008….But nothing major that we know of happened in the Shemita of 2015, that was September 13, 2015…As Jonathan Cahn tells us, no one can tell God what to do or when to do it…. I agreed, but I wandered what was different from the Shemita of 29 of Elul 5775 or September 13 of 2015 from the Shemita of 2001 and 2008? Our nation had not repented then nor now…So what was it?…Then it came to mind that the year of Jubilee will follow the Shemita of 2015,as my father said, pardon upon pardon…

Leviticus 25:10 “ And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family. 11 That fiftieth year shall be a Jubilee to you; in it you shall neither sow nor reap what grows of its own accord, nor gather the grapes of your untended vine.

May be this is why nothing really happened in the Shemita of 2015.

2.The Last of the quartet total lunar eclipse during the Feast of  Tabernacles 2015 in Jerusalem.

Jewish Sages and the Tanach tells us that a red moon like the one produced in a full total moon eclipse is a bad omen for the Israelites.

1.The Tetrad of red blood moons of 1949-50 falling on the four Feasts of the Lord:

Passover, Tabernacles of 1949, Passover and Tabernacle of 1950 probably had nothing to do with the Independence and formation of the State of Israel on May 1948 (This was a good thing)…It was probably related to the war of Israel with the neighboring Arabs for the next two years, until Israel signs the peace treaty with them in 1949 and leaves Jerusalem out of the control of the Jews. In 1950, Jordan annexed the West Bank. I would interpret this not to be good for Israel. .. The Bible states that the land belongs to God and He has determined that the Jews will live there. And the Jews cannot rent it nor sell it. It is Holy to God.

Ezekiel 48:14 And they shall not sell or exchange any of it; they may not alienate this best part of the land, for it is holy to the Lord.

2. The Tetrad of red blood moons of 1967-68

The 6 day war of Israel in June of 1967 is a good thing, not a bad one… So what would be the bad omen for Israel? It would be that they returned to the Arabs the control of the Temple mount even though it was in Israeli hands after the war. They were just happy with Jerusalem recaptured and did not have enough faith to believe that the Temple, the place where God chose to reside, was also theirs.

3. The Tetrad red blood moons of 2014-2015.

What is the bad omen for Israel this time around? Usually in prophecy the regular Joe like us do not find out what the fulfillment of the prophecy was about until time passes by, until they look towards the past…But if the previous two tetrads herald bad things for Israel, the present Tetrad would also have to do with bad treaties where the land given to them by God is included…

Maybe Daniel 9:27?

“Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.”

4th Red Blood Moon in Jerusalem, Feast of Sukkot 5776

 The Feast of Tabernacles is the only Feast of the 7 Feasts of God that will continue to be kept in the Millennium.

Zechariah 14:16  Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, and to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.

May we all be in the book of Life and enjoy our meals under the Sukkah!

ISRAEL2015496Mount Zion Sukkah on Sukkot 5776.

The time is short. We prayed that many of you will continue to work to find the 12 tribes of Israel by DNA.

Looking forward to hear from each one of you.

In Yeshua’s love,

P.S. Who is the Jew that has taken over 2 billion of gentiles and Israelites descendants to worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in 2015?

No other Jew or man has accomplished this feat except:
