Bethink Themselves

This page is an introduction to a series of reports that concentrate in the teachings of the Bible concerning the identity of the true Biblical Israelites.  We recommend that you first read the report called Who are the Children of Israel? which focuses on the prophecies given to Moses that are signs for us to identify our nationality.  Baruch 2:28 “As thou spakest by thy servant Moses in the day when thou didst command him to write the law before the children of Israel, saying,” Verse 29: “If ye will not hear my voice, surely this very great multitude shall be turned into a small number among the nations, where I will scatter them.” Verse 30: “For I knew that they would not hear me, because it is a stiffnecked people: but in the land of their captivities [slavery] they shall remember themselves .” Verse 31: “And shall know that I am the Lord their God: for I will give them an heart, and ears to hear:” Verse 32: “And they shall praise me in the land of their captivity, and think upon my name,” Verse 33: “And return from their stiff neck, and from their wicked deeds: for they shall remember the way of their fathers, which sinned before the Lord.” Verse 34: “And I will bring them again into the land which I promised with an oath unto their fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and they shall be lords of it: and I will increase them, and they shall not be diminished.” Verse 35: “And I will make an everlasting covenant with them to be their God, and they shall be my people: and I will no more drive my people of Israel out of the land that I have given them.”

This scripture contains the teachings that our people need to hear in order for them to prosper and receive that everlasting covenant/salvation.  The first principle is that we must remember ourselves; meaning understand that we are the children of Israel that sinned (broke the laws) against God.  Return from the heart in repentance; asking forgiveness for our sins and changing our walk to that which is just.  1st Kings 8:46 “If they sin against thee, (for there is no man that sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them to the enemy, so that they carry them away captives [as slaves] unto the land of the enemy, far or near;” Verse 47: Yet if they shall bethink themselves in the land whither they were carried captives, and repent, and make supplication [prayer] unto thee in the land of them that carried them captives, saying, We have sinned, and have done perversely, we have committed wickedness;” Verse 48: “And so return unto thee with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto thee toward their land [Jerusalem], which thou gavest unto their fathers, the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name:” Verse 49: “Then hear thou their prayer and their supplication in heaven thy dwelling place, and maintain their cause,” Verse 50: “And forgive thy people that have sinned against thee and all their transgressions wherein they have transgressed against thee, and give them compassion before them who carried them captive, that they may have compassion on them:”   The request of Solomon revealed in his great wisdom that our people were going to become slaves, lose their identity, and forget the purpose of their heritage.  Please also read, Leviticus 26:40-42.  We pray that the reports (below) through scriptural proof will help you bethink yourself to understand who you really are and guide you to receive the mercy promised unto salvation. Shalam (Peace)!
