Why did I start with this story? It is just one of many in which the crimes the rulers and importers f the System of white supremacy s perpetrated on African and other peoples. As Ivan Van Sertima said,
"We [Africans] are educated with a European mind."
It is my hope that I will shed this mindset to think and respond as an African in all aspects of my life. The first call by the Creator is to look at the most influential institution in my life and that was religion.
Here's how my story began.

am a cultural and spiritual Revolutionary."
This is my personal walk through history to find the truths that eluded me. You my not agree with my assessments, so I suggest you study and find your own way and understanding.
What do I think is the difference between Belief and Truth?
When I use the title 'I Believe' my hope is to communicate to you what has been communicated to me through my search for the Truth. When I say truth, it is not a contrived truth that I have sought, but rather the universal timeless Truth. The eternal Truth that we have lost.
Belief - A conviction that something is true, exists, is right, an opinion to ones best knowledge.
Truth - In agreement with fact, correct, accurate, straight, level, conformed to the original [African]standard, sincerity, integrity, and evidence.
My essays are based upon evidence gathered in my research of the
true and accurate identities of the ancient peoples of
In my process of growth as I learn then more
information will be added to these essays. They are a work in progress, as I
am. Throughout this process some erroneous notions I have held will be deleted
as well as some essays added to or even deleted.
As my natural and spiritual understanding is refined, many of my original
thoughts have and will drastically change.
Hopefully, you can follow my growth patterns as we all grow.
Hopefully, you can follow my growth patterns as we all grow.
I have gathered information and evidence from many noted scholars, the gems
they have unearthed are magnificent and I will give credit where
credit is due. Some ideas are mine [if any

Some ideas are mine [if any idea can be really ours] and in this I've found the ancestors were with me walking along this path of enlightenment as the light for my feet.
I believe, first of all there is no need to reinvent the wheel on every item so, I will defer to the prolific knowledge of scholars and historians. I understand that I only have a small amount of information concerning our great and illustrious people, but as time progresses I hope I will be able to comprehend more of our discoveries and write about them in my own words and present these simple words to you. I am a simple and basic person and I believe we should understand without all the hub-bub and fake academia. I'm not a historian or academician. I am a human/divine looking for answers.
To those who may criticize me, there are a lot of highly academic sites you can go to--this one is for the common folk!
For all those who have tried to use is site to promote racism of any form, you are wrong and God will repay your ignorance.
For those who have raised up Blogs and sites to unfairly criticize this work I say "Throw a rock in a pack of dogs, the one it hits will holler."
Finally, for those who have lifted my writing out of context AND those who have attributed my writing to themselves please let's behave honestly.
I wrote this because I needed to understand things simply, and my essays are simple and easy for any person to understand. I have made mistakes, so please do not take my word as gospel and forgive my grammar and punctuation, my mind sometimes out-writes my hands, but these essays should just compelled you to "Study to show yourself approved."
With much Love...
First, I need to thank my dear husband, Dr. Keita for his love, strength, and patience while walking this path of discovery with me, and for allowing me the freedom to pursue my educational goals unencumbered by tradition.
Secondly, I thank my Parents for their genes, love and southern sensibilities, and for placing all of their children in an environment that supported learning and success. I love you Mom and Dad I know you transition has helped me.
Thirdly, I thank my little ones, those from my womb and those who
are my spiritual children. Those in this world and those who have gone on to be
glorified in the world to come. They have indeed made me develop the 'Mother'
and Comforting-comforter resident in me.
I also want to I thank all my former Pastors and Teachers who in their unconsciousness and sometimes with deliberate myopia concerning the Bible and religion, have inadvertently educated me in the science of ‘What Ain’t’, so I may be able to recognize 'What Is'!
Sometimes you can learn what is by what ain't when things are unclear. Just as you can see the original by the outline, remnant, or shadow it leaves.
I also thank Robin Tillman and Dr. E. Limbere for helping me recover my essays when my server and computer crashed. I am indebted to you both!
I also need to thank my dear friend, Marsha Stewart who made me believe I had something worth saying. Thanks Sister! One day we will meet and have a laugh over a beer and some fried catfish! I'm buyin'!
Finally, and most definitely!
thank my Creator for the faithfulness, love, protection, and compassion rained
upon me throughout my life. My Creator has guided me on a road that at
times seemed difficult, but I know now 'My footsteps have been ordered...'
and with the confidence of Divine instruction I will reach my intended goal.
My hope is to live up to all
that is invested in me. Although I am not perfect, I intend, with the Creator's
help, to live a prosperous life [mind, body, spirit] and to help those in need
[family, friends, neighbors, and the world]. I purpose to be a blessing
to all those the Creator has put in my path, and to recognize those who are a
hindrance to my growth,
and finally, to be gathered to my Ancestors at a ripe old age, basking in
the ultimate truth that will only be fully understood when this flesh falls

hold on a minute...don't get scared!
I did say He or She or It?
When I say He or She or It in the past, like most of you, I would have winced and shut my ears to any and all who would used a feminine or neutered term in referring to My GOD. But, now I know that we have anthropomorphized [placed human characteristics on ] our Creator to fit the ideas of the dominant cultural edicts, mores, and ideas. We weren't the first, although there is something important to the masculine and feminine attributes in our Creator manifested in our writings and experiences. This includes a specific gender which in the past 2000 years, has been exclusively male. But, in the beginning and distant past God was represented by a womb, or basket as the source of life...female.
"When God Was a Woman is the U.S. title of a 1976 book by sculptor and art historian Merlin Stone. It was published earlier in the UK as The Paradise Papers: The Suppression of Women's Rites. It has been translated into French as Quand Dieu était femme (SCE-Services Complets d'Edition, Québec, Canada) in 1978 and into German as Als Gott eine Frau war in 1989."
All babies start out physically female until some are washed with testosterone. even with male genes. Studies have also showed that the lien of what is male and what is female is blurred.
Ask yourself the question: Why do men have nipples? Why does a woman's clitoris resemble a hidden [cloaked] penis in some cases 6 inches long? Do we think of things too strictly as male and female? Hummmm--anyway lets move on.
The terms She/He and Male/Female applied to the Almighty then attributed by mankind simply because we do not know how to define our Creator, so it is simpler to view him/her/it as we view ourselves or nature backed up by the scripitual reference that we are made in his Image [mark etching] We look at that as purely physical, but it is not, it is spiritual. Since we live in a Patristic and Paternalistic society [male dominated] we have over the millennia, used the male gender as our bases for what is and is not God. Just as for millennia the image of god was the European. But where does that leave us? How do we re-appropriate the feminine without it being labeled as a negative, or having penis envy at best?
Just as we say God has hands, feet, arms, legs, breath - does He really? Does a Spirit have arms legs and hands?
As John 4:24 says;
is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in
A more accurate translation is:
God is a
Spirit and those who worship Him do so in the spirit of truthfulness [in
the Spirit of truth].
When the Bible refers to the Creator speaking to a
rebellious Nation He says:
how long I have wanted to gather you like a mother gathers her chicks.'
Is the Creator a chicken or game bird?
When Psalms 91 says:
Is the Creator a chicken or game bird?
When Psalms 91 says:
his wings we trust'
Is the Creator then a bird?
"When his voice sounds like a roaring sea or many waters"
Is the Creator water?
Is God in all things...yes God is the Creator of all things.
These statements are all metaphors and zoomorphic terms used to make us understand the Creator by the created things we see on this earth. We therefore can use the same for male and female. So, if God is a sprit does he/she have a male or female proclivity?
The word said; "the Adam" had Eve inside him and they were both made in the image and likeness of God the Creator. Was this image only male? Is a woman only a man with a womb? According to nature, although there are many factors to gender, again I will say it: male embryos are essentially female until they are bathed with testosterone to become male even with the chromosomes of maleness.
We understand it in the statement 'AS LIKE" our ancestors wrote a story about God using the 'as like' principle, and then the first so-called Hebrews and their children, the first so-called Christians, continued the tradition.
The ancient writers used Iconography in their descriptions of the Almighty Creator and the attributes or forces that worked on the behalf of the Almighty. They used depictions and hidden symbolism to tell a story just as we do today. They used a great visual aide and carved it is stone so it would last, which it has. They left the keys to understand which unfortunately fell into the hands of the wrong people...the Egyptologists who tried to hide the fact that Africa was Egypt and Egyptian civilization was the culmination of all African thought a culture and this is where Hebrew or so-called Judaism! Later, Christianity and finally Islam sprang from Egypt with all the religious off-shoots of the world, like Hinduism, Buddhism and Druidism to name a few.
In the Hymn to Amen-Ra the writer says:
"Thoth [Tehuti the mind of God] exalt thy two eyes [which are the sun and the moon] and makes you to dwell in splendor..."
Iconography is used to communicate the traditional symbolic forms of God, man, authority, power, strength, love, justice, good, and evil in an set of idea, beliefs, stories/myths to engage our whole brain and employ all of our senses. When we do not understand these points, we will begin to believe the propaganda that our people were ignorant and filled with evil, and that the light was brought to us by the European.
"Civilization did not start in European countries, and the rest of the world did not wait in darkness for the European to bring light ."
African Civilizations by John G. Jackson quoted from Dr. John . Clarke
It is a Euro-centric mindset that caused the invading and conquering European to dangerously and purposefully misunderstand and misrepresent the culture and worship of our people in Africa/Egypt, and deem our rituals and services to be pagan or heathen then try to sit upon our most sacred places to desecrate them, and we help in our ignorance. This attitude carried over into Christian doctrine when the Greeks and Romans started the process of claiming what was not theirs. Since that misinterpretation, the notion that we were Polytheists or Animists abounded and has branded us with that faulty, ignorant, and slanderous label which makes Judaism, Christianity and Islam misinterpret their religious roots.
But a tree without a roots will die.
Creator of all things meets us where we are. Everybody is not going to accept this understanding -
but as the kids say: I ain't mad at ya!'
will stay with the basic understanding about the Bible, live a good life,
follow the commandments, be gathered to the heaven and walk on streets of gold, and that is all good! But, for those who are seeking the meat of the
word, then it is a bit different.
12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food. 13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.
By now, I have to acknowledge the Egyptian root to our Christian religious and cultural beliefs. I do so unashamedly. We all should see the Egyptian roots in Judaism and Christianity, but we do not dared acknowledge them for fear of excommunication or Hell.
It is true the roots of Egypt have been watered down so much they are unrecognizable, but even with that, out of fear, we reject the truth set before us.
The problem is: If we embraced the
history of Egypt and those historical claims, then how
could we then explain our Biblical hatred of Pharaoh and
We looked at the movie The 10 Commandments and saw ourselves in the Charlton Heston
and Cecile B. DeMille's version of mythology masquerading as History and cheered for the "Hebrew
We believed the lie that the Hebrew built the pyramids, without even reading the biblical text that said. It was the treasure cities of Pithom and Rameses the Hebrews built.
"Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses."
Pithom means : "The city of Justice" in Strongs Concordance. But justice for whom?
How can a treasure city be built with bricks made out of straw? It was not. It said they also built the City of the Setting Sun which was close to the area of Sucouth.
Sucouth is the name of a holyday on the Hebrew calendar. The Bible mentions no pyramids being built only 2 cities, and one city relates to Justice and the other to a tabernacle made of flesh which is Sucouth, a town by Pithom and the Hebrew festival of Tabernacles or huts. These thing are clues in finding the hidden meaning.
We dwell in a flesh suit, we tabernacle here for a time.

Growing up in a Judeo-Christian home, I found there were several
inconsistencies in my understanding of biblical and secular history.
When these inconsistencies arose I was programmed [from childhood] to overlook
them and never question anything biblical and learn secular history from a
Finally, when I was old enough to study for myself and challenge what I was taught, I ran across information and explanations that seemed frankly, like contrived fairy tales, myths and hastily concocted events to explain Biblical origins. Everything I read seemed based on conjecture and innuendo, and when questions arose that was not rooted in real fact or historical evidence I was told to shelve it and God would reveal the truth to me. When I pressed for more conclusive answers I was told.

Why were we enslaved I asked, because we deserved it just like the Hebrews. W were black-hearted heathens and coming to America saved us.

several times throughout my life. He/She/It has been the sustainer of my
life and has blessed me in ways to numerous to count. That is why I wanted to

completely. I wanted the truth all of it - the Uncut Funk!
Over the course of 55 plus years on this planet, these molehills
of unanswered religious questions became mountains I could no longer
ignore. By the time I felt confident enough to question my Creator
on my own, in order to find out what my direction was, the vehement voice of my Pastor[s]
and their minions overruled the still small voice of God inside me.
In a fit of despair I asked again:
'Am I worshipping

Needless-to -say, I was floored. You spend your whole life building a house on a lie and you don't even know it!
Over the years I had moved from one exclusive mainstream religious cult to another and found myself an upwardly mobile wife of a minister long before I asked the question. I was a tongue talking, Bible totin', Holy Ghost filled, Sunday hat wearing woman of God; and by everyone's estimation, on the fast-track in the religious hierarchy. I sincerely thought that was the way God wanted it. I was wrong!
After many years God began to show me that He/She/It was bigger than [the]
church and bigger than man's notions of religion. Larger than the people
who pretend to work in his Name, and bigger than the lies told to keep us
I did not want to be one of the religious people who did so many
things in the Name of the Creator of all things, but in the end he would
say...Get away from me I never knew you." That scripture always pierced my soul.
'These people honor me with their lips but, their hearts are far from me.'
When I finally stopped playing 'Saved' and sat down quietly and opened my ears to hear the voice of the Almighty, I was told that most of what I thought I was doing was not worshipping and getting to know the Creator and the greater purpose. What I was doing was aiding the promotion of the agendas of men, women, and the institution they served in steering the people in the wrong direction.

Peripeteia - A reversal - the turning point in a drama after which the plot moves steadily to its denouement [conclusion], a shift of fortune from bad to good or vice versa, an ironic twist. In other words, News that was originally sent to cheer you up, slowly brings about an awful recognition that may lead to a catastrophe. It also means to shift from bad fortune to good in a comedy.
Well, this wasn't a comedy. This realization was indeed a reversal
of all I thought I knew and understood. The irony is, being an African
living under the system of white supremacy, it has as planned, affected our
perception of right and wrong, good and evil. It has manifested itself
heavily in all religious systems, historically, and in the African religious
experience. I as most of you out there in Cyberville, were and are
under the illusion that
In the religious world, I was asked covertly to
disengage my brain.
It was not said openly, but to blend in with the status quo, I was
prompted to give up all things African, and believe that being taught from
a Euro-Centric point of view was what God wanted. I was told to believe without tangible
evidence, believe with my feelings, emotions, and unction's everything that was
pronounced from the pulpit, and their interpretation of the Bible.
Sola Scriptura: Simply stated, the Protestant doctrine of sola scriptura ("Scripture alone") teaches that every teaching in Christian theology (everything pertaining to "faith and practice") must be able to be derived from Scripture alone.
This is expressed by the Reformation slogan Quod non est biblicum, non est theologicum "What is not biblical is not theological," cf. Dictionary of Latin and Greek Theological Terms.[ Drawn Principally from Protestant Scholastic Theology, Richard A. Muller, Baker, 1985).]
What does that mean?
An essential part of this doctrine, as Protestants have
historically articulated it, is that theology must be done without allowing
Tradition or a Magisterium (teaching authority) any binding authority. If,
Tradition or a Magisterium could bind the conscience of the believer as to what
he was to believe, then the believer would not be looking to Scripture alone as

is a lonely walk.
I came to understand that what I had taken for granted and
believed my entire life and what the Creator of all things, miraculously
revealed, was the LIE taught from traditions, myths and the contrivance of
man. This was indeed the work of the adversary, who the Hebrew’s call
Ha-Satan, and the Egyptians referred to as Set, and we have come to call the
Devil, Lucifer or Satan.

The Adversaries of this world and those who work to
perpetuate this system, use an age-old method of 'Hiding the truth where
it can be plainly seen’ and 'Making the truth into a LIE.'
A semblance of the truth is made available in every bookstore
and library but a spin is put on those strands of truth and we are
programmed so intrinsically, that the natural man ignores the TRUTH or
when he is confronted with the truth, he automatically thinks the TRUTH
is a LIE. Finally, the truth is whitewashed literally, and the
evidence is obscured, so much so that on the surface it doesn't resemble
anything you want to KNOW about!
Because of our religious programming, we are like Pavlov's Dogs -
when the bell rings we salivate even when there is No Food.
Truth has to be seen with the acute Eyesight that the Creator has
given us - that was why the Creator of all Things who modern manifestation is YahShua (Jesus)
is recorded as saying "Having Eyes you see not and having ears you hear
not!" With this eyesight that attenuates your insight so we are able to
rightly divide the word of Truth and discern good from evil ...How?
We don't understand the power of discernment and how necessary it
is when choosing life, good, and godliness.

unsatisfying junk food we call modern religion. the word religion is supose to

what? We are blinded to our relationship
with The Creator of all Things, because someone in the church-house knows our
personal name, or the Pastor calls out our name from the pulpit. We think that is
godliness. We believe that our
'standing' in the church correlates with our standing with God!' We
are told and shown that our function in this world is solely to make the church
bigger not to help, but to grow, not to feed, but to be fed on! We were
told that in this world our actions don't really matter, 'Now that we're saved.'
We are no longer accountable to understand the edicts that Yahshua
[Jesus] outlined? we are longer accountable to be the vanguard for the world, no longer
accountable to let Messiah be birthed in us and for us to go out and do the
'Greater Works' because he had gone to the Father? No longer able to read,
study, comprehend and then FOLLOW Biblical Directions [Old and New] as long as
we are SAVED by saying a few
words in a rote formula.
As a beautiful African woman said to my husband years ago :
Salvation is not a Formula.
We grow and develop by reading and understanding the
commandments of the Creator first and being exposed to the spirit of truth.
The precurser to the 10 Commandments were the Negative Confessions of the
Egyptians. For the most part, we are not
encouraged to read, let alone STUDY the word past a childish "word studies" and
a few manners and customs of ancient times. Then, when we come across obvious contradictions we
are frozen and retreat back to our comfort zone.
We, as the writer says; never get past the rudiments of the
" Therefore, leaving behind the initial [initiatory, first, primary] lessons about the Messiah, let us go on to maturity, not laying again the foundation of turning form works that lead to death, trusting God, and instruction in washings [baptism or mikveh] laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead and eternal punishment. And, God willing this is what we will do...For when people have been enlightened, tasted of the heavenly gift, become sharers in the Holy Spirit [Shekinah], and tasted of the goodness of God's word and the power of the world to come - and have fallen away - it is impossible to renew them so that they turn from their sin, as long as for themselves they keep executing the Son of God on the stake over and over again..." Hebrews 6: 1-8.
We need to drink in the concepts of the word that we read
everyday and research them based on study,not just study around religion. That's
a vicious circle. We need to understand the life within it pages and compare it
with other words of wisdom We need to

we stop at Greek and Hebrew and we do not understand the greater influences of
What we find is, we have grown weak without true spiritual
food - We are Soul Men and Soul Women not Spiritual Beings made
in the image and likeness of god letting our LIGHT shine! we are not only Human Beings whose source
is from a supernatural supplier our Creator.
"For although it is time for you to be
teachers, you need that someone teach you again, the very principles of the word
all over again. You need milk and not solid food! Anyone who has drunk
milk is still a baby, without experience in applying the Word of righteousness.
But solid food is for the mature, for those whose faculties have been trained by
continuous exercise to distinguish good form evil. " Hebrews 5:11-14.
Yes, we have mentally assented to the notion of our position in the Creator, but we never have made him the LORD of our life. We have never understood the "Christ in us the hope of Glory part!?" We have never moved on from the titty to meat!?
The Scriptures say:
is nothing Hidden that will not be revealed.'
It has been a hard battle from darkness to light,
blindness to sight--I cannot
say I have made it completely - there are many, many, many, many things
that remain shaded and even obscured. But, you cannot put a lamp under a
basket. That's not it's purpose...the light will shine through the cracks.
Light will Triumph!
I am not angry with anyone and I do not hate anyone, so all my Ex-Pastors can breathe a collective sign of relief! They helped me with the 'What Ain't portion of my life."

I DON'T CARE!
In this group of essays, I will try to dismantle European elitism and their quest for historical immortality by co-opting the culture and spiritual truths of the original African peoples. Hatred of any kind would not give honor to the Creator so this not the intent of the essays, although I may write things that may sting all of us.
I have come to understand that we all came into this life with a
purpose and we all understand the TRUTH at different times, but it is Our
Duty to proclaim the truth to the best of our ability. The truth is
always 'Hidden in Plain Sight' available for all to see, but more
often than not, it is dressed up as something else. No matter how it is -
we are still accountable to SEE past the facade. We are told to seek Him while
it is still early.
There is only One God [and in my research] for a point
in my life I accepted the name the Creator of all Things because it I simple and

surely be known to the Egyptian as Aten or Atom [Adon], Amen, Nuk-pu-Nuk as
variations of the attributes they recognized.
This belief in the ONE that was REPRESENTED by the SUN, but was not
WORSHIPPED as the SUN or SOLAR DISK.
The attributes were the male and female as established in the images of the Neteru [the 8, 9 or 12] and later described by the Hebrew as the Elohim [multiple], and then by the Christian as the compacted Trinity [Man, woman, child] Father, Son, and Holy Ghost [feminine].
This belief was taken by the original Hebrews before the invasion
of the Hyksos and the farther they moved way from the root of Egypt, they forgot [rejected] their
nativity and their culture was influenced by other systems [that were variations
of the Egyptian System] such as the Persian understanding under the tutelage of
Ezra the Scribe and the remaking of the Hebrew Torah. That new amalgamated system was modified and the essence
of the understanding was merged converged and part of it lost.
As the original Egypto-Hebrew migrated further down the Nile
toward central and southern Africa and ultimately into all of Africa the
name which was always known to the Hebrews as Yahweh was modified dialectically
to the name Nyame, Nembe, Zambe, Namba (as in Zimbabwe, Zambia and Namibia) and
Yamé to name a few. In this migration they [re]co-mingled with their KNOWN
relatives throughout the Continent and returned to the root of civilization,
which was AFRICA [called
These relatives were not just in the modern continent of Africa,
but India, China, Japan, Cambodia, Vietnam and the Philippines and its
provinces, the Islands of the Sea for an example: Melanesia, Polynesia,
Micronesia, Australia, and on to the Americas and in the diasporatic movement
these are the nations where Africans in different epoch migrated.
Long before Columbus or Marco Polo or any European explorer.

Historically, the country of
The Children of the Egyptian had a sect called Hebrew[Hibaru] who on
dispersion and migration became the Asanti, Igbo, Hutu, Tutsi, Ethiopian,
Malawian, Yoruba, and Lemba nations to name a few and the Nations of traditional
Igbo who practice the traditional religion also call God Chi . Chi which
is related to the Asian Chi or life force and the Hebrew Chai which is
'Life' and the root word for the name if Chavvah [Eve] the wife of the Biblical
Coincidence -- I don't
I believe a Truth is written in the pages of the only Holy Book I currently accept [although we must still get to the root meaning of it] which is the original Bible. The Bible was brought together over thousands of years and excerpted from the Papyrus of Anu and the Book of Coming Forth by Day and other ancient writings, but I am beginning to understand the link is always
I believe this word was originally excerpted from the so-called "Book of the Dead or Coming Forth by Day" and other Egyptian [African] tomes and mixed with migration stories and prophecies of the Messiah [Messu].
I believe the original manuscripts are inspired and were completely understood by the Africans that wrote them and they had a Cosmic understanding.
I believe that the Bible is a microcosm of an original work, and that work.
I believe we are accountable to understand and apply what we do have to our lives.
But, we must search the scriptures AND try the Spirits and ask for
wisdom and knowledge from our Creator and the paraclete he left for us to
consult. When we do this, we will be able to SEE what is hidden. I
believe e woman was/is the model for the Holy Spirit on Earth.
I believe many parts of the word agree with the Egyptians Books and manuscripts that were stolen and/or destroyed by the Persians, Greeks, Romans and others in order to claim that African heritage for themselves.
I believe that Moses was an Egyptian Hierogrammat and son of Pharonic parents and may be Ankhenaten who later became the priest of a nation we know as the Hebrews, I believe his name Mos is only half a name meaning in Egyptian 'Son of' and not related to the commonly used Moshe or 'drawn out' and by using Moshe we further seek to obscure Moses' true identity.
I believe the Patriarchs in the Bible were all Egyptian including Joseph, David and Solomon being their corrupted Hebrew names, and they understood the importance of keeping the Ethiopian [African] seed of the woman to guarantee kingship.
I believe that I need a Messiah or Anointed One and that Messiah manifested himself as the Creator of all Things to show me who I am inside.
I believe the original manuscripts were written about and for African peoples, and they were the original peoples of the known world, written in all books before the advent of the European.
I believe that the ORIGINAL autographs of this word were written by Africans concerning the African Messiah.
I believe we must adhere to the commandments of the Lord and that the hinge of their commandments are [A hinge what opens and secures the door to the frame of the house] and is the essence of Maat and negative confessions. But let us start with:
1.Love the Lord with all you heart mind and strength.
2. Love your neighbor as yourself.
I believe the original Black Hebrews were the children of the Egyptians and in the major Diaspro-atic movements they traveled down the Nile and moved with their relatives to the inner parts of all of
Africa, then spread to all of the world.
I believe there is a LIFE after this LIFE on earth, and when we sleep [Die to this mortal body] we will meet our Creator and know all things.
I believe physical death is not the end of our Spiritual LIFE!
I believe all people had a law they agreed upon and that was the " Golden Rule or the Ethics of Reciprocity."
"Treat others as you would want to be treated."
I believe we are spirits housed in a body, living in an incubator we call Earth and upon our exit we will go to a place prepared for us.
I believe that our nightly sleep is evidence of the Resurrection, and that when we sleep we commune with the Creator of all Things and that communication depends upon our relationship with Him.
I believe we will all be judged on our life on earth in this incubator, and our hearts and actions weighed according to scripture and according to acceptance or rejection of Messiah.
The Bible is a microcosm of a larger work. The Bible is what brought
I believe that Truth does not change, but knowledge matures. As I mature and learn more of the Truth, I will not be afraid to Add To or Take Away from what I have posted. So, this sight is subject to change as I spiritually mature!
I believe the Creator of all Things, can stand up to ANY test. In Messiah [the Mesu within] our footsteps are order by the Creator of all Things.
I believe that Africans are to teach the world about the Creator.
I believe we are the Priest of the world and we do not know it.
I believe that in subsequent translation, revisions and versions of the Bible, the African-ness has been removed from the Scriptures and made Euro-Centric, this is due to the design of European Imperialism, Colonialism and the System of White Supremacy...Racism.
I believe European Christendom in particular and the Europeanized-African and African-American forms of Christianity, have been bastardized into a religion that Messiah the Creator of all Things, YahShua did not practice, would not have condoned, or recognized, as the truth of the Creator which he came to proclaim.
I believe that one of the names of the Creator is Yahweh/Elohim in the Hebrew tongue (Which is Canaanite) and the dialect may vary depending upon the region in which the original Hebrew African Israelites traveled. The name the Creator of all Things, the name on the Continent in some areas is pronounced like breathing out or aspiration or a blowing out.
Here are two examples of the HEBREW pronunciation of the
The western African pronunciation:
The ancient Egyptian: Aaaa-men
I believe we are endued with His power and we have to have his wisdom in Messiah to handle that power in a good and positive and life-giving way.
I believe that Messiah is the Salvation of the Creator of all things, as his name proclaims and no man can come to the Father except by that salvation: the Creator of all things called in the Hebrew tongue YahShua and this dwells inside and outside of us.
I believe we are to live by the Torah [Five books of Moses] to the best of our abilities and when we fail we have an advocate who is the Creator of all things and his advocate YahShua the modern name we use for entrance into the heavenlies.
I believe those Five books were lifted from the original Egyptian Books.
I believe that the 'Eyes to See 'the word was originally given to the African as reiterated by the Biblical Moses about Jethro [Hobab] the priest of Midian but, because of our blindness the world can not truly see the Creator.
I believe that the African man/woman MUST resume their place on the spiritual world stage, to direct the nations back to the Creator.
I believe we must stop playing games with the lives of those who trust us.
I believe that this walk with the Creator of all Things is worth the journey!
I am inviting all of you to take a walk with me - down the path to Everlasting Life.
