One day more people will come to the realization that that land they call Israel is not the land that the bible speaks of. The Middle East is not a land "flowing of milk and honey". Its a dry land. This is why they never find anything supporting the biblical events there.

America has all the resources, had all the gold, has had Egyptian artifacts found in Illinois and the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon has pyramids if you look real closely ("Isis Temple"). There was a mound with Hebrew symbols found in Ohio by a US stenographer. There are so many things that should draw people's attention to here rather than the land over in the Middle East that isnt flowing with milk and honey..

You wouldn't be a black American "Hebrew Israelite" by any chance, would you?

If I removed the inverted commas, would you prefer? I know the movement has some traction out there? I don't mean to be so direct but you do guard your identity fairly carefully KM ;-)
Whether the " " are there or not, Im not a "Hebrew Israelite". That is a specific cult that I am not a part of. In fact, I feel like I've explained this to you before but maybe not.

And unless you're suggesting that I believe the things I posted because of an "identity", then Im not sure the relevance here. If you are suggesting that, then it would better served addressing the information I brought and addressing why its incorrect, false, or incomplete rather than my "identity".

I didn't mean to offend you @KoncreteMind - I had never heard of a kind of American Israel narrative before, that's all. I just wondered why those ideas attracted you when there seems to be more evidence than you realise for the straightforward reading of things?

Im not offended though I understand its hard to read that thru text just didnt see the relevance. The first thing that put me onto this was the fact that Colombus said he was going to conquer the holy land before coming to the America. As well as him thinking that he had found the Garden of Eden in South America. If they believed Israel was where we say it is today, he wouldnt have said/believed these things. And while we're on that, theres no mention of an "Israel" existing in the middle east till the 1940's. Before then, it was known as Palestine. Then there was a guy named Antonio or Arron de Montezinos who said he found people in Peru reciting the Shema. Then heres that map of mounds found in Ohio with Hebrew symbols:


And theres bible verses about the land of Israel that adds onto why I feel the way I do. Now that we're nearing the last days of whoever is ruling this place, the truth about these things are coming to light.

There are certainly some very interesting Semitic connections to the US. They may not be quite what people are expecting but I found this investigation into the stories and history of various "native American" tribes really interesting:-

41Cf5XkxhpL._AC_SL1500_.jpg

"That's What the Old Ones Say"Pre-Colonial Revelations of God to Native AmericaA revealing book of intriguing stories told by elders from different First Nations Tribes about The Creator, His Son, Native End-Times Prophecies, Revelations & more.Many of these traditional stories have been told for generations at Ceremonial Grounds, Stomp Arbors, Powwow Grounds, and private family gatherings tucked away deep on tribal lands. I was honored and humbled to be able to sit and learn these old stories from elders hailing from many First Nations tribes. Comanche, Dineh, Apache, Anishinabe, Aztec, Cherokee, Creek, Cheyenne, Lakota, and Mohawk are a few of the tribes whose elders shared their beautiful stories with me. I listened eagerly to these accounts that were passed down from generation to generation while understanding filled my spirit and I was asked to pass these stories along to the next generation.These are stories that were told before missionary contact and I realized with each story that I listened to I had heard them before…not from my tribe but from another ancient tribe who has left an impacting legacy on the earth called The Bible. The Creator planted the seed in my heart to write this book as a way to help build the bridge of reconciliation between the nations. You might laugh, cry, sing for joy or wail from the deepest parts of your soul. Betrayal, love, reconciliation, unity, sacrifice, joy, peace, history, archaeology, science, the perseverance of the human spirit and the longing for Creator to heal our land and broken hearts. A longing for our spirit to be uplifted from the only One who can give us Hope in the face of utter defeat and despair. I was humbled being entrusted with hearing these stories and was given permission to retell them so they can be shared with the world. Seneco Kakona (Many Blessings). - Chief Joseph RiverWind
