Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.

Today we will be looking at Genesis chapter 10 to see who our neighbours are, whence they came, and where they are going. It has been some time since I have studied the Table of Nations and I was rather surprised at what I saw when I refreshed my mind. I studied the two Tables of Nations files on our Church Website as a lead into another subject I have been asked to examine afresh. The squeeze is being tightened by the international banksters as inflation debases the value of money and the allowable limit to cash withdrawals are lowered while central banks and governments are preparing to introduce CBDC's which will ultimately ensure that you will own nothing and be happy so long as you are obey. Revelation 13:15-18 is on the horizon.

Our current news items should bring you up to date with the work of our Adversary in the world and reveal the wicked work of the people God set at enmity with Adam's race. Please visit the hyperlinks and read the Full story.

This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.

Biden okays F-16s for Ukraine, US Weapons to attack Crimea

Joe Biden's money laundry

May 24, 2023 — Moscow has considered Crimea a part of the Russian Federation since its annexation in 2014, meaning efforts to recapture it would—at least in theory—be treated the same as an invasion of any other part of Russia . . . and Crimean's overwhelmingly prefer to be a part of the Russian Federation . . . Antiwar's Dave DeCamp writes the following: A Russian official said Saturday that the Western plans to provide Ukraine with American-made F-16 fighter jets bring "colossal risks" after the US announced it would sign off on European countries delivering the aircraft. "We see that Western countries are still adhering to the escalation scenario. It involves colossal risks for themselves," said Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko, according to TASS. "In any case, this will be taken into account in all our plans, and we have all the necessary means to achieve the goals we have set," Grushko added.

During the last day of the G7 Summit in Hiroshima, Japan, President Biden was asked about Russia calling the F-16 plan a "colossal risk." He replied, "It is for them." Full story:

Comment: London posts job ad for mercenaries for Ukraine's counteroffensive. "We invite citizens from the Middle East and North Africa to participate in a voluntary program to assist Ukraine on a competitive basis . . . Russia's Foreign Ministry earlier provided data showing that thousands of mercenaries from more than 60 countries were recruited to Ukraine to fight alongside Kiev forces (

Back in late February, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that Moscow will suspend its participation in the New START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty), the last remaining nuclear arms control agreement between Russia and the United States. Putin cited several major reasons for such a decision, including the illegal sanctions imposed by the political West. These restrictions led to an effective halt of the treaty's implementation in early 2022, as Washington DC refused to honor it by allowing regular mutual inspections, which was an integral part of the New START. As Russia had no legal or practical way of verifying any of the Biden administration's claims about the state of the US strategic arsenal, it was forced to suspend its participation in what essentially became a mere formality.

"Russia did its best to solve the problem in Ukraine peacefully, but the statements of Western leaders turned out to be fraudulent and untrue," Putin slammed the behavior of Western political elites during his February 21 speech.

And indeed, the Eurasian giant simply had no other choice as the treaty became largely ceremonial. In addition, considering the series of recent admissions by various Western leaders that nearly all treaties with Russia were there to "just buy time", Moscow has every reason to doubt every single word uttered by any US/EU/NATO official. However, Putin also stated that his country would continue abiding by the New START limitations on its strategic arsenal and that the suspension concerned only the mutual inspections and further direct cooperation with the political West in matters of nuclear disarmament. However, as per usual, the belligerent power pole saw this as a perfect opportunity to escalate instead of doing the opposite . . . (

Japan hosting G7 to blast China

May 22, 2023 — A spokesman for the Chinese foreign ministry said the G7's approach has no international credibility whatsoever . . . it is hindering world peace, undermining regional stability and inhibiting the development of other countries. Earlier, G7 countries issued a statement, accusing China of coercion. They said they were gravely concerned about territorial disputes in the South China Sea.

Peter Koenig: The world must know that the G7 is only a group of power-thirsty western countries . . . they have absolutely no legitimacy in the world. They are not even an established NGO . . . China and Russia, and ever more countries of the east, and increasingly also the west, and/or Global South, are resisting this One Polar World Order, or what they call "rules-based order" . . . not based on any international laws, without any international legitimacy. None whatsoever . . . The G7 want to increase their intimidation on China by talking from an eastern neighbor, almost 80 years ago destroyed by the US, now totally sold to the corrupted west.

What many people do not know, is that recently Washington promised Japan—if they take a firm anti-China and pro-western stance in questions of the South China Sea, foremost Taiwan, but also on North Korea—they would be rewarded by Washington—with nuclear protection . . . Blackmail, corruption . . . No ethics left—no chance for peace with such pretexts and values of aggression, just pure domination . . . Japan has already called on NATO to open an office in Japan—that would be the first in Asia.

NATO logoTimes are long gone when NATO was the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the post WWII "protective umbrella"—what they pretended to be—it has long become the west's deadliest war machine . . . is deviated by NATO members for war and killing, money that could be used at home productively, for poverty alleviation, economic development, job creation. Poverty in the west is rampant oscillating between 25% and 30% of the population . . . It is nothing but propaganda to the rest of the ignorant planet's inhabitants . . . What really counts is what we see developing in the East—through the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), through Chinas Belt and Road Initiative, through the BRICS—it is an ever-growing attempt at peaceful cooperation around the world, at establishing diplomatic relations and common projects—at building, rather than demolishing.

. . . this "intimidation maneuver" is pure propaganda. Talking about Taiwan, the key issue played out by Washington and its western puppet allies, the US and most EU governments know that there is no chance in the world that the US/NATO could start a new conflict with China . . . Also, ties between Taiwan and mainland China have been growing ever stronger over the past years, with the CCP being strongly invested in Taiwan and vice-versa. Executives on both ends of corporate and financial business, travel back and forth between the political and economic power centers of mainland China, Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and others—and Taipei. There is a natural interaction that has been growing ever more solid over the past years. It is also just a question of time, when Taiwan will be naturally integrated into mainland China—peacefully, if the west does not interfere. And the west does not have the means to interfere, although they keep pretending, they do . . . there are at least seven active wars waging throughout the globe, most if not all, initiated by the US/NATO war machine, plus numerous conflicts around the planet . . . Waging wars on seven fronts and supplying hundreds of billions of dollars-worth of arms to Ukraine—and through it to the black-market—the west has hardly enough firepower left to start a new conflict.

While the West aggresses and destroys, the East is constructing, building new relations, linking countries together with refreshed diplomacy . . . The Chinese diplomacy initiative is seeking to improve the balance of power—working towards a peaceful multi-polar world . . . The US economy would collapse, if tomorrow were Peace. It is the war machine that is the backbone of the western world's economy. Full story:

Comment: He didn't look at all as I had expected. I traversed the quiet room and found a portly older gentleman, immaculately and rather formally dressed—a finely spun woolen Navy blue suit, slightly lighter blue tie, starched collar and cuffs. He seemed quite comfortable and turned a kindly, inviting smile towards me as I advanced.

"You seem surprised," he purred. His voice was light and easy on the ears. "You didn't expect horns and a tail, did you?" he chuckled.

He grasped my hand warmly and offered me a seat opposite. It was dusk and we looked out, from our chairs on the balcony, over a quiet harbor. The gentle clatter of voices from the nearby dining room, the hardly discernible knocks of snooker balls from another direction—these were the cushioning sounds over which our conversation took place. I hardly knew where or how to begin, I confess, but he helped me along.

"So, my friend, I suppose you wish to understand why I am withdrawing from the field?" he asked.

His smile broadened and his eyes, far from piercing, met my own, wide with inquiry.

"Yes," I replied, half gulping the word.

My host motioned for drinks and the shadow of a waiter fluttered our way, and then returned with expensive Scotch, neat. I was absorbed by the golden glow of our snifters, a way perhaps of covering my befuddlement. You see, the Satan of my imagination was a wild sharp fierce creature—yet the being here before me, about whose perfidy so much has been written, was positively benign and . . . and comforting, like an avuncular banker about to approve a loan. The mildly fleshy cheeks, his cheer, his reassuring gravity—I was speechless.

"My work is done," Satan continued. "There's nothing left for me to do."

The drink helped me to regain composure, so I felt more myself and could respond.

"All these years," I said, "the effort you've expended . . ."

He interrupted me with a laugh.

"Effort, you say? No, there was hardly any effort at all. You see, sloth is of one of my vices—one of my pleasures, actually. I needed to do"—and here he emphasized the word—"virtually nothing. An intimation here, a word in someone's ear, that was enough. They"—and again he added stress—"did everything I could have wished for, and with far greater speed.

Except for a little trouble I had with that fellow from Nazareth who—give Him credit—very cleverly rebuffed my blandishments, it was all so very easy.

Where would you like me to start? With Eve? Poor woman, I would have offered Adam that first bite of the apple, but I could never have relied on his persuading his consort. So I cosseted her and the rest, as you are so fond of saying, is history.

The killings, the conquests, the idolatries, the rivalries, the hypocrisies, the betrayals, and the endless line of fire-breathing prophets sent to make things right . . . I needed only to watch—and to admire. Although I have no little appreciation of my own strategic wiles, I daresay I lacked the imagination for deception that your species has shown, the infinite ways of lying. Really, I take my hat off to you and your kind."

"But . . . but why now?" I blurted out, "why are you retiring? Have you achieved your goals? Have your goals been met? What are your goals? Are we so bereft of hope?"

I was agitated, bumbling, and nearly leaped out of my armchair in consternation.

"Calm down, sir, calm down," Satan replied. "Let me tell you a parable."

He eyed me as I slumped back, bewildered.

I was silent as Satan, after a small sip of his spirit, resumed.

    "The avalanche would have been more cataclysmically exciting, perhaps, but wasn't it far better to have the villagers destroy themselves and, ironically, to do so on the basis of a deception? Just a word or two," he continued cheerily, "that was all. The rest was in their hands."

The waiter appeared and refilled my vessel.

    "The most difficult part," Satan continued, "was time, simply waiting for the instruments of power to catch up with the human proclivity towards destruction. And now, as you most assuredly can see, that time has arrived. You have succeeded in penetrating and marshaling the forces of the atomic nucleus, you have divined the secrets of the human genome, you have created an electromagnetic web of such potency that nothing can ever be private again, and your leaders, in their quest for transhuman immortality, will sacrifice as many lives and as much blood as they feel they need to achieve their illusionary aims. This so-called virus, the global coordination necessary to shut down your little world, your mania for injecting, for force, for cruelty and division, and the immense concentration of power in the hands of the few . . . it has only one end. In the past, your murder and mayhem were, shall we say, limited, localized. But no longer."

With that he finished his drink, adjusted his cuffs with their sparkling links, rose and bowed.

"I like a good game of snooker," he said.

But before he set off toward the tables, he took my hand, warmly.

    "Time was all I needed," he whispered, "a little time. And as for progress, which also requires time, what will you remember most about your cherished 21st century? Which genocide? And what will your Corona Wars have crowned? A most fitting end after so much misery achieved in the guise of goodness. Well, I've won my wager, and, to quote from His very own book—which I know by heart, by the way—even He knows that there is a time to lose." (By Dr. Emanuel Garcia, "An Interview with Satan on the Eve of His Retirement").

Globalist Billionaires plan to wreck America

Soros' puppet

May 14, 2023 — I was reading a document that was authored by George Soros over 10 years ago in which he talks specifically about this all-out war that would ultimately come against Russia because he said this 'was the last nationalist state that rests on a foundation of orthodox Christian culture with Russian identity at its core. That has to be removed. So I think that the people who are in charge in the west and the people in charge in Washington think they have successfully destroyed the identities of the European and American peoples, that we have no sense of ourselves, our borders are undefended, we present no resistance to the incoming migrants from the developing world who essentially roll over us as though we owe them a living and that our laws do not count. Thus, far I would say that is an accurate evaluation of what we've been doing. And I think that's a great victory for George Soros and the globalists, the anti-nationalists; those who want open borders what they call it an "Open Society" because you end up with nothing, an amorphous mass of people struggling to survive who are reduced to the lowest levels of subsistence . . . (Soros) even goes so far as to talk about how useful it would be if it was east Europeans whose lives were expended in this process and not west Europeans who simply won't take the casualties. This is not a minor matter. This is the kind of thinking that is so destructive and so evil, in my judgment, that that's what we're really dealing with in our own countries and I think Putin recognizes that" ( Douglas Macgregor—A Huge Offensive," You Tube; 11:20 minute).

The reason I transcribed this comment from MacGregor was because it sums up the perceptions of a great many people who see things the same way. It expresses the hatred that globalist billionaires have toward Christians and patriots, both of which they see as obstacles to their goal of a borderless one-world government. MacGregor discusses this phenomenon in relation to Russia which Soros sees as "the last nationalist state that rests on a foundation of orthodox Christian culture with Russian identity at its core." But the same rule could be applied to the January 6 protestors, could it not? Isn't that the real reason the protestors were rounded up and thrown into the Washington gulag? After all, everyone knows there was no "insurrection" nor were there any "white supremacists." The protestors were locked up because they're nationalists (patriots) which are the natural enemy of the globalists. The MacGregor quote lays it out in black and white. Elites don't believe that nationalists can be persuaded by propaganda. They must be eradicated through incarceration or worse. Isn't that the underlying message of January 6? Full story:

Comment: The West's support of Neo-Nazism in Ukraine should come as no surprise. Historically, powerful US financial interests not only supported Nazi Germany as well as Bandera Nazism in Ukraine. In some regards the totalitarian practice of Neo-Nazism is akin to the doctrine of the Neocons as formulated in the Project of the New American Century (PNAC). And Serbia, Beware, you are the only country in Europe which has courageously stood up against US pressures. This and much more is revealed in this interview with Prof. Michel Chossudovsky, economist, professor emeritus at the University of Ottawa and editor of the renowned anti-globalist Global Research website (

Jewish-Russian Proxy President: Zelensky transformed to a Nazi

Magen David

May 22, 2023 — Zelensky is Jewish: he supports the Nazi Azov Battalion, the two Nazi parties, which have committed countless atrocities against the Jewish community in Ukraine. He belongs to a Russian-Jewish family. He was brought up as a native Russian speaker who was not fluent in Ukrainian until recently. Now this Jewish-Russian proxy president wants to "ban everything Russian," including the Russian language, the Russian media, the teaching of Russian in the schools.

He has been instructed by Washington to lead Kiev's Neo-Nazi government, which is portrayed by the US mainstream media including the NYT as a democracy. Zelensky also plans to ban Russian composers including Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Borodin, Glinka, Rimsky-Korsakov, and many more. He has ordered the removal of 100 million books by Russian authors, including Tolstoy, Pushkin, Dostoevsky, Gorky, from Ukraine's libraries. Meanwhile, the Kiev neo-Nazi regime (supported by US-NATO) has endorsed the writings of Stepan Bandera as well as Adolph Hitler's Mein Kampf [this is just common sense]. "He . . . laid flowers on the grave of his grandfather . . . who fought in the Soviet Union's Red Army during World War II." It was May 9—Victory Day in Ukraine—and a day of "thanksgiving," he wrote in a Facebook post.

"[Semyon] went through the whole war and remain[s] forever in my memory one of those heroes who defended Ukraine from the Nazis," he wrote. "Thanks for the fact that the inhuman ideology of Nazism is forever a thing of the past. Thanks to those who fought against Nazism—and won" (quoted in Washington Post, emphasis added). Full story:

Comment: Before he was coopted by the US and NATO, pornographic actor Zio-lensky was boasting he was covering bullets in pig fat. Then he went begging and preaching at the Arab League like it was Hyde Park. Zelenski needs more US taxpayer dollars (to deposit in Belize and Cayman Islands), Zelensky's pro-Russian speech. The Australian government is supporting this treason with millions . . . these people without the Law are found in Genesis 3:15 and rule the UK, USA, Australia and the apostate Christendom (once) so-called.

Hundreds of Undercover Feds in the Crowd on Jan. 6!

May 24, 2023 — Since the riots, chaos and vandalism that took place at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, speculation has swirled about the presence of undercover federal agents among the protesters. Now the Biden administration is admitting that dozens of Justice Department plants were present on January 6, as well as dozens more FBI agents, Secret Service agents and who knows how many other law enforcement personnel.

Jimmy Dore notes that he has been consistent in his insistence that January 6 was a Fed. operation from the start and that this latest revelation represents complete vindication for that belief . . . Full story:

Comment: There were 100-200 secret service agents alone at the Capitol before and during the breach of the police barriers.

President Joe Biden, in a May 13th commencement speech to historically black Howard University's graduates, told the overwhelmingly black students and their families that "The most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland is white supremacy. And I'm not saying this because I'm at a Black HBCU, I say it wherever I go." Indeed, both Biden and his inert (Jewish) Attorney General Merrick Garland nee Garfinkel have delivered that same message on a number of occasions, but this was the first time it was employed in such a racially charged environment. It was clearly a pre-electoral call to arms against white people in America, placing government sanctioned targets on the backs of whites who are generally peacefully struggling to retain their communities, identities, religion, heritage and culture, all of which are being engulfed by the White House's tidal wave of self-serving and politically motivated "woke" promotions (; FBI).

The Graveyard of Empires
by Nick Giambruno

After almost two decades of conflict, an insurgent army from one of the world's poorest nations inflicted a decisive military defeat on the US global superpower that upholds the unipolar world order.

For at least the past decade, China, Russia, and Iran have been working on an impressive plan to connect Eurasia . . . constructing a vast network of land-based transportation infrastructure . . . It aims to bypass the US financial system and the US Navy's control of sea routes. The project, planned to be operational by 2025, includes high-speed railways, highways, fiber optic cables, energy pipelines, seaports, and airports.

These Eurasian powers are also establishing alternative international organizations for financial, political, and security cooperation, separate from those central to the US-led world order, institutions like NATO, the World Bank, SWIFT, and the IMF . . . The decline of America's geopolitical influence is another enormous headwind . . . the US dollar's credibility when a ragtag group of insurgents from one of the poorest countries can defeat the military which backs it?

If the mighty US military couldn't secure its partners in Afghanistan, how can it protect its other allies? Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Western European countries, and the Gulf Arab states . . . a paradigm shift in Saudi policies signifies a paradigm shift in the US dollar because of the petrodollar system.

However, Saudi Arabia is not the only US ally hedging its geopolitical bets recently. France, India, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, and others are making moves to cozy up to the Eurasian geopolitical block . . . the US dollar . . . was already on a path of inevitable debasement and eventual collapse—even before considering the compounding effects of a multipolar world order . . .

"I've got documents from the NIH—from 2002—talking about integrating vaccines into foods," announced attorney Tom Renz in an eye-opening interview with Dr. Naomi Wolf. "They've been working on integrating these [vaccines] into our food supply. They've been working on it for at least two decades . . ." "Gates, the WHO, a ton of these universities: they're all talking about including mRNA vaccinations as part of the food. They're going to modify the genes of these foods to make them mRNA vaccines," he warned in this video.

Genesis 10 – the Table of Nations

"No one must lightly dismiss the question of race. It is the key to world history and it is precisely for this reason that written history so often lacks clarity—it is written by those who do not understand the race question and what belongs to it. Language and religion do not make a race, only blood does that" – Benjamin Disraeli, Genesis 3:15

Genesis 10 is a prophecy that establishes the origins, and reveals the traits that have determined the future history and fixed the ultimate destiny of each branch of the human race in their journey from their Genesis through to their reward or loss as described in the Books of Ezekiel and Daniel and expounded by Jesus through His angel, the late William Branham (Revelation 1:1; 10:7).

In the Table of Nations, seven sons of Japheth are named. The sons are peoples or countries, only Japheth remains a person. The same holds for Shem and Ham who do not belong to the Table of Nations. So the record is not merely or mainly a genealogy of individuals but of family houses by which earth was divided into nations according to the number of the children of Israel. Hence: –

a) The dual form of names such as "Mizraim" which is probably meant to represent the two Egypts.

b) The plural form such as Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Nephthuhim, Pathrusim, Casluhim, Caphthorim, represent the nations named after a patriarch such as "Lud".

c) The tribal or gentile forms like Jebusite, Amorite, Girgasite, Hivite, Arkite, Sinite, Arvadite, Zemarite, Hamathite.

d) Forms for "groups" of tribes, such as Canaanites.

e) Forms for nations, such as Gomer, Magog, and Madai.

Trees represent people and like the two trees in the Garden of Eden, Shem and Canaan were initially side by side in the midst. In general terms, we may say that the north was assigned to Japheth, the south to Ham, and the middle territory to Shem, whereas Canaan was beaten asunder or "scattered abroad" throughout the earth.

Five words are translated "nation" in the Old Testament. "Goy" means a non-Hebrew nation or multitude of creatures (people, animals or insects). "Am" means a collection of people, a nation, attendants, troops, a tribe or compatriots. "L'owm" means a gathering or community of people. "Erets" means nations, land or country. "Ummah" means a community of people, a tribe or nation.

Four words are translated "nation" in the New Testament. "Ethnos" which refers to a race of the same culture or habits: specifically gentile, heathen or pagan customs foreign to Israel. "Genos" means kindred breed, stock, race born of a common descent. "Genea" means a group of kindred people at a point in time, era or generation. "Allophulos" means another (non-Israelite) nation or tribe.

Genesis 10:1 gives the "generations" (Heb. "towldah"—pedigree or genealogical lists of the blood-descendants) of Noah's three sons who are named in order of their theocratic importance, not their age. Shem represented the believer, Ham the make-believer, and Japheth the unbeliever. However the descendants of Japheth, Noah's first-born, are treated first in this prophecy. They occupied the desirable lands of the "goy" beyond the sea from Israel, families of a common language settling under the headship of patriarchs following the dispersal from Babel and taking their identity from their names.

Next, the descendants of Noah's younger son, Ham, are discussed. Clearly, Ham, whose estate has been degraded in that his firstborn, was the illegitimate Canaan, who is cursed with his Serpent's seed forebears, is not one to passively submit to Noah's prophecy. His practical nature rebelled against that Word in his son Cush; and in his son Nimrod, who became a mighty hunter, blessed of God. And this became a proverb among the people.

When wild animals overran the land making it unsafe, Nimrod culled the beasts, restoring peace and safety, thus earning the gratitude of the people who made him their leader. He then organized them into cities with walls for protection, and teaching his huntsmen the art of war, established his kingdom and built more cities.

Many generations after the confusion of tongues, Ham's other sons settled in Africa, establishing nations under their names. Canaan and his descendants are listed separately in this genealogy and in the genealogy of I Chronicles 1:13-16 because they are accursed, not being in Adam's race. All the sons of Ham gave their names to families of a common language who eventually settled their nations following the dispersal from Babel.

It must be remembered at this point that the descendants of Cain, the family of Canaan on this side of the Flood, have no inheritance in the earth, and can never enter the Presence of the Lord (Genesis 4:11-15). Thus God commanded Moses to utterly exterminate all the Canaanites found living in the Promised Land (Deuteronomy 7).

Portions of land were also divided among the descendants of Noah's second son Shem, and so the whole earth was divided among the sons of Noah and their descendants. Seventy nations, countries and tongues were named after these men.

"Philology," which is the science of the structure and development of language, has discovered three parent groups of languages and peoples: Aryan, Semitic, and Turanian (who are Asiatic and neither Aryan nor Semitic)—Japheth, Shem, and Ham. Family traits are evident in the languages of the different groups as language determines or reflects the way men conceive of things.

The Japhetic or the Indo-Europeans have maintained the evident relationships in their particular family of languages. And the same observation applies to the Semitic languages. Even though they have spread so widely, they have continued to share a certain way of viewing things. Indo-Europeans philosophically with an emphasis on the abstract, and the Semites with their emphasis upon behaviour from a more transcendential point of view.

From all over the world, wherever Ham and Canaan are found, the witness is to an entirely practical view of the world, rooted in the present, wise in a canny sort of way, specific, particular, uninterested in the abstract, always inventing new words or new terms for things, interested in particulars rather than categories, earthy, and very largely disinterested in unlikely possibilities.

The family of the Indo-European languages is readily identifiable as a family, as are the Semitic tongues. The Hamites, however, have been so inventive, they devise terms with equal facility and their languages are in such a state of flux that within a few generations, even tribes living just across the river will find themselves scarcely able to converse.

This strange tendency which has prevented the Egyptians, Hittites, Sumerians, Chinese and Central American Indians from developing an alphabetical script may have been Providence, guaranteeing the quick dispersal of Ham all over the world. Many cuneiform scholars have noted the similarities between Sumerian and Chinese. "Civilization has travelled with the sun, from the east, coming west. . . . The oldest civilization is China . . . And sin has travelled with civilization" (63-1216.htm, We Have Seen His Star and Have Come to Worship Him, par. 188).

What divided the Hamites in this way was not a difference in language structure, for the philosophy of their languages remained remarkably similar, so that the ways of thinking of the African native, the Chinese peasant, and the American Indian have remained for a very long time comparable: it was the vocabularies which changed.

According to Genesis 10:32, the families of the sons of Noah are divided or separated by languages into tribes and nations. These boundaries also knit them together in their generic group. This is a protective measure to ensure each people would be separate yet interdependent in order to realize the maximum capacity of man with his tremendous creative potential.

Any attempt to unify the world's language, to co-mingle the races or nations with the overt intention of making all men share equally in this potential will only serve to defeat its own purpose in the end. Thus Esperanto, "multiculturalism", gender equality, the UN, WCC and "the brotherhood of all mankind", are artificial, in direct opposition to God's purposes, and in a manner of speaking, a repetition of the hubris of Babel (Genesis 11:1-6; Matthew 24:37-38).

Japheth, means "opened" or "expanded". Naturally in the sense that his descendents settled all Europe and the greater part of Asia, and later colonized and developed the Western Hemisphere previously ruled by Ham and Canaan, as Shem replaced Canaan in the Promised Land. For obvious reasons, Japheth never expanded to the Far East. And spiritually through the fulfillment of Genesis 9:27 and Matthew 21:43 wherein Jesus said to Shem, "The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation, ("ethnos" or Gentile culture), bringing forth the fruits thereof". That is, a people with the faith of Abraham (Galatians 3:26-29).

From Japheth derive the Indo-Europeans and the Medes (58-0108, The Handwriting of the Wall, par. 21). The early Aryans knew Japheth as Djapatischta (chief of the race); Greeks referred to Japheth as Iapetos or Japetos; East Indians called him Iyapeti or Pra-Japati; Romans deified him by the name Ju-Pater or Jupiter. The Saxons perpetuated his name as Iafeth, subsequently transliterated as Sceaf (pronounced sheef or shaif), and recorded in their early genealogies as the son of Noah the forebear of their various peoples (Anglo-Saxon Chronicles). The variant Seskef was used by the early Scandinavians. All of these peoples, we must remember, were pagans whose knowledge or even awareness of the book of Genesis was non-existent.

The Japhetic tribes being furthest from the theocratic centre were last in attaining to historic eminence, and "enlarging" with much greater minuteness to detail the Hamitic and Arabian nations which were soonest developed and with which the Hebrews came most into contact in the initial stages of their journey through time.

History has recorded Japheth's geographical enlargement. The entire Western hemisphere of our globe is settled by Japhetic peoples, and East Indians are of the same stock. The record of Japheth's spread (enlargement) over the earth has been marred consistently by his destruction of the cultures which were already in existence wherever he arrived in sufficient force to achieve dominion. It happened in the Americas, Africa, Asia, Australia, and only numerical superiority of the native population has hitherto preserved parts of Africa from the same fate. Indeed, in early historic times the pattern of events is repeated again and again, whatever cultural advances the pioneering Hamites had achieved tended to be swallowed up by the succeeding Japhethites. The "enlargement" of Japheth has continued to this day, an enlargement greatly accelerated geographically in the last few centuries—frequently at the expense of the Hamites (or Canaanites) who first possessed the land.

Gomer, literally means "completion" and is the progenitor of the early Cimmerians and other branches of the Celtic family. Settling in eastern Europe near the Black Sea, he became the Gauls/French, Galatians, Gaels/Scots, Celts/Irish, Goths/Germans/Scandinavians, Saxons/Britons/Welsh, Dutch, Armenians, Romans and related groups.

Magog, means "overtopping" or "covering". Settling first in Georgia, a region between the Black and Caspian Seas south of the Caucasus Mountains, he became the Scythians, Russians, Belorussians and Ukrainians.

Madai, means "middle land". He settled northwest of Persia proper, south and southwest of the Caspian Sea, east of Armenia and Assyria, and west and northwest of the great salt desert of Iran in the ancient kingdom of Media, now Iraq and the northern part of Iran. He is the father of the Medes and East Indians.

Javan, means "effervescing" or one in a state of bubbling heat." He fathered the Ionians and Greeks. His sons occupy Cyprus, Rhodes, and other islands and coasts of the Mediterranean and the coast of Spain, Italy and Portugal.

Tubal, means, "Thou shalt be led". The city of Tobolsk was named after him. He settled near Cappadocia in Asia Minor and fathered the Bulgarians, Hungarians, Albanians, Romanians, and other related groups.

Meshech means "led along". The city of Moscow (Muskovi) is named after him. Initially settling in northern Turkey south east of the Caspian Sea, he fathered the Poles, Finns, Czechs, Yugoslavs and other related groups.

Tiras, means "expulsion," "impoverish" or "disinherit." He settled across the Propontis and fathered the Thracians, maritime groups, and possibly the Etruscans of Italy.

Through his sons Ashkenaz, Riphath and Togarmah, Gomer peopled much of Armenia and the Carpathian Mountains.

table of nationsAshkenaz, means "a man as sprinkled: fire as scattered." He settled first in Armenia, migrating thence to Bithynia, the northern islands of Europe and European west coast: Germany, Scandinavia and Denmark.

Riphath, means "slander: fault." He settled in Czechoslovakia, Romania, and Turkey.

Togarmah, means "thou wilt break her". His earliest descendants settled in Armenia, Turkey and Germany. In the late eighth century BC, Assyria probably uprooted and transported most of those still living in Armenia.

Elishah, means "my God has disregarded." The Greek translation is "Hellas." His descendants settled in Greece.

Tarshish, means "she will cause poverty: she will shatter". He settled Spain.

Kittim, means "beaters-down" or "bruisers." Kittim settled Cyprus, other Mediterranean islands, and Macedonia.

Dodanium, means "leaders". He settled Rhodes and the Dardanelles and was subsequently deified and worshipped as Jupiter Dodonaeus.

Ham literally means "warm" or "passionate" as revealed by his sin with his father's wife. Although Ham first established himself in Sumer, the land of Ham is Africa; more particularly Egypt (Psalms 78:51; 105:23; 106:22). His descendants, however, were first to leave the territory assigned them, emigrating from Asia to the islands and the Americas.

The Shemites were still in the area at the time of Abram. It is the Canaanites who were "spread abroad" or driven out and scattered (Genesis 10:18) in the days of Peleg (Genesis 10:25).

Looking at history, whichever region we consider, Africa, Europe, Australia, or America, the major migrations have always been from Asia (Genesis 10:18). In every area of the world where Japhethites have subsequently settled, they have always been preceded by Hamites. This pattern applies in every continent, as the earliest fossil remains of man have been Mongoloid or Negroid in character and head shape, whereas those that came last belong to the family of Japheth (Caucasoid). If we study ancient history and technological achievements, which were in many ways the equal of, or superior to much of what we have today, they were founded and carried to that high technological proficiency by Hamitic people, showing an amazing adaptability to the world in which they lived. Their achievements were exploited by the Japhetic people, who became great scientific discoverers.

The evidence appears to point consistently that not only Africa with its black races, but the Far East, the Americas, and other Island nations with their coloured races were all descendants of Ham. Hamitic people were the first to reach the far and distant lands of the world as prophesied by Genesis 10:18, preparing the way for the future. Their inventions and discoveries made a significant impact on the world, and provided inspiration for the Japhethites. Their Babylonish religion however, was most certainly not the original religion of earth's early peoples.

Ham's "religion gained prominence as proven by the fact that Scripture identifies it with Satan completely in Isaiah Chapter 14 and in Revelation Chapters 17-18. And by history we can prove that it invaded the whole world and is the basis for every system of idolatry, and the theme of mythology, though the names of the gods differ in various sections of the land according to the language of the people."

The polytheistic religion of the enemy began with the trinitarian doctrine. It was way back there in antiquity that the "one God in three persons" idea came into existence . . . our modern theologians have not spotted this . . . Is it not strange that while the descendants of Ham went on their way in Satanic worship which involved a basic concept of three gods that there is not one trace of the descendants of Shem believing such a thing or having any ceremonial worship that involved even a type of it?"

"And Cush begat Nimrod." "Not only is this so but we find that Ham begat Cush. Now, in the Egyptian culture Bel was called Hermes, and Hermes means, "THE SON OF HAM." According to history Hermes was the great prophet of idolatry. He was the interpreter of the gods. Another name by which he was called was Mercury" (Acts 14:11-12).

"Cush, then, was the father of the polytheistic system and when men were deified by men, he of course, became the father of the gods. Cush introduced ancestor worship and also the trinity. Now Cush was called Bel. And Bel in Roman mythology was Janus. He is pictured as having two faces and he carried a club by which he confounded and "scattered" the people. Ovid writes that Janus said concerning himself, "the ancients called me Chaos". Thus we find that the Cush of the Bible, the original rebel against monotheism was called Bel, Belus, Hermes, Janus, etc. amongst the ancient peoples. He purported to bring revelations and interpretations from the gods to the people. In so doing he caused the wrath of God to scatter the people, bringing division and confusion (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 182:1; 184:1; 186:2; 187:2).

Cush, means "black," a metaphor for "wickedness" or "terror." Cush settled first in Shinar, thence south Arabia, southern Egypt, the Sudan and northern Ethiopia.

Mizraim, means "double straitness" and is a plural word, perhaps prophetic of the division of upper and lower Egypt where he settled in North Africa.

Phut, means "a bow." Jeremiah 46:9 calls his people archers. They settled Libya and are the Cyrenaeans and North Africans.

Canaan settled in the land of Canaan. The Hamitic origin of his name means, "belonging to the land of red purple" after the murex sea shells from which this dye was extracted. In Akkadian it meant "red-coloured wool." The Greeks renamed them "Phoenicians" from the Greek "Phoniki" which means dark red. The Romans transcribed the Greek "phoenix" to "poenus", thus calling the emigres to Carthage "punic." In Hebrew it means "merchant," or "trafficer"—"to bend the knee," "humiliate," "bring down low," or "vanquish." Genesis 10:18 said, "the families of the Canaanites (would be scattered, vanquished, or) spread abroad".

Seba, the firstborn son of Cush, whose name literally means "drink up," settled the west coast of the Arabian Peninsula, founding the nation of the Sabaeans, nowadays called Yemen.

Havilah, literally means "anguish," "pain," or "travail." Settled on the eastern coast of northern Arabia near present-day Kuwait.

Sabtah, literally means "he compassed the mark." He settled on the east coast of southern Arabia.

Raamah, literally means "thunder." He settled on the east coast of southern Arabia, possibly in present-day Oman.

Sabtechah, means "striking." He settled in Yemen.

Sheba, means "seven" or "an oath". He settled north of Yemen in a fertile land known as the "Spice Kingdom" whence the queen brought oil of spikenard as a gift to king Solomon.

Dedan, means "low country." He settled in the United Arab Emirates in the Persian Gulf.

Nimrod, literally means "the rebel". He pushed his own designs in open defiance of God and is discredited with instigating the Great Rebellion at Babel and founding the very features of paganism by introducing magic, astrology and human sacrifice.

"Cush introduced a three god worship of father, son and spirit. Three gods who were all equal. But he knew about the seed of the woman coming, so there would have to be a woman and her seed come into the picture. This was brought to pass when Nimrod died. His wife, Semiramis deified him, and thus made herself the mother of the son and also the mother of the gods. (Just exactly as the Roman church has deified Mary. They claim she was without sin and was the Mother of God.) She (Semiramis) called Nimrod "Zeroashta" which means, "the woman's promised seed" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 187:3). Nimrod is also known as "the husband of the mother," (reminiscent of Ham's relationship with Noah's wife which spawned Canaan).

Semiramis is said to have ruled for 42 years gloriously after Nimrod's death, conquering Persia, Libya and Ethiopia, being unsuccessful in India alone (Lenurmant, La Legende de Semiramis, 1873; Historical Review, January 1888, The Legend of Semiramis, A. H. Sayce).

Ludim, literally means "firebrand" or "travailing." They settled Libya on the northern coast of Africa.

Anamim, means "affliction of the waters." They settled in the Nile Delta but as little is known of this tribe they may have been devastated by the Ethiopic War.

Lehabim, means "flames" or "a glittering blade." They settled in Libya but perhaps this tribe was destroyed in the Ethiopic War.

Naphtuhim, means "openings." This people are known to have settled in the Nile Delta and the western parts of Egypt. Early records refer to them as "they of the delta" or "marshland." Josephus says they were destroyed in the Ethiopic War.

Pathrusim, means "a morsel moistening." They settled Pathros in upper Egypt.

Casluhim, means "forgiven ones." They are the Colchihans of the Egyptian town Chemnis, Panoplis, in northern Egypt.

Philistim, means "immigrants." These are the Philistines who migrated to and occupied the lower part of the Mediterranean coast belonging to Shem.

Caphtorim, means "knob" or "bud." They also migrated to the lower part of the Mediterranean coast belonging to Shem and are the Philistines.

Canaan receives his first Biblical definition in the Table of Nations as the father of Sidon and Heth, of the Jebusites, Amorites, Girgasites, Hivites, Arkites, Sinites, Arvadites, Zemarites, and Hamathites. The five names following Sidon are familiar as the inhabitants of the "Promised Land" (Exodus 13:5). They occupied the area enclosed by the border of Genesis 10:19, running south from Sidon towards Gaza, through Gerar and across to the cities of the Dead Sea plain. No eastern limit is drawn. At the time of the conquest the land as a whole was named Canaan (Numbers 35:10), a usage understandable in light of Canaan's place at the head of the peoples of Genesis 10:15-19.

The Canaanites practiced the most sordid and evil religions based on ritual murder and sexual perversion. Their idol, Baal, was the son of El, the head of a pantheon of decadent deities. God commanded Israel to completely destroy these corrupt civilizations including their animals.

The vast aggregate of peoples generally classified as Mongoloid, who settled the Far East are descendants of the Canaanites, including the people of the South Sea Islands, Eskimos and most of the native Indian tribes of North and South America. These Asian people have a "Mongoloid Spot," a blue or blue-gray spot on their tailbones at birth.

Sidon, means "to hunt." Sidon is in Palestine on the Mediterranean coast north of Tyre.

Heth, literally means "terror." He was progenitor of the Hittite nation, whose name was known to the Assyrians as the Khatti. The Hittites were apparently the first nation to smelt iron. The Armarna tablets contain letters that were sent from the Hittite emperor Subbiluliuma to the Pharoah Amenhotep IV. Rameses II also tells us how he engaged the Hittites in what was the earliest recorded battle involving massed chariots. This was the famous battle of Kadesh, and it appears that the Hittites got the better of the Egyptian forces. Heth's name was perpetuated in the Hittite capital Hattushash; modern Boghazkoy in Turkey. Rome's ancient rival, Carthage, was colonized through Canaan's sons Sidon and Heth.

Jebusite, literally means "trodden down by armies" (Daniel 9:27; Luke 21:24). Jebus was the original name for Jerusalem around which the Jebusites settled.

Amorite, means "a boaster". The Amorites dwelt east of Canaan by the Dead Sea and the Jordan (Joshua 24:11). They were to conquer Babylonia, subsequently producing one of the most famous kings in the ancient world, Hammui, whose own name contains the designation Amarru. God told Abraham, "Israel will return to Canaan when the iniquity of the Amorites is come to the full" (Exodus 15:16).

Girgasite, means "dwelling on clayey soil." They lived east of the river Jordan and the Sea of Galilee.

Hivite, means "villager." They dwelt at the base of Mount Hermon in the Valleys of Lebanon, and at Shechem (Genesis 34:2; Joshua 9:7-17; 11:19).

Arkite, means "my annoyance." They dwelt near Mount Lebanon.

Sinite, means "thorn," "clay" or "mire." They dwelt on the coast, west of Mount Lebanon.

Heth (Hittites) and Sin (Sinites) are the progenitors of Chinese and Mongoloid stock. "Hittite" in Cuneiform appears as Khittae, representing a once powerful nation from the Far East, preserved through the centuries in the more familiar Chinese term, Cathay. The Cathay were Mongoloids and considered a part of early Chinese stock. Links between the known Hittites and Cathay include, for example, their modes of dress, their shoes with turned-up toes, and the custom of wearing their hair in a pigtail. Representations show them to have possessed high cheekbones, and craniologists have observed that they had the common characteristics of Mongoloids.

"Sin," a brother of Heth, has many occurrences in variant forms in the Far East. The place most closely associated by the Chinese themselves with the origin of their civilization is the capital of Shensi, namely, Siang-fu or "Father Sin," on the Wei, a tributary of the Yellow River, near important gold and jade mines. The Chinese have a tradition that their first king, Fu-hi, made his appearance on the Mountains of Chin after the world had been covered with water. Their character for ship signifies eight souls in a boat. Sin himself was the third generation from Noah, a circumstance which would provide about the right interval of time. (J. Pye Smith and J. Inglis, Notes on the Book of Genesis, Gall & Inglis, London, 1977, p. 89).

Moreover, those who came from the Far East to trade with the Scythians were called Sinae (Sin). Ptolemy, a Greek astronomer, referred to China as the land of Sinim or Sin. Reference to the Sinim in Isaiah 49:12 notes they came "from afar," specifically not from the north and not from the west (see Revelation 16:12). Arabs called China Sin, Chin, Mahachin, or Machin. The Sin were spoken of as a people in the remotest parts of Asia. Their most important town was Thin, a great trading emporium in western China. This city is now known as Thsin or simply Tin, and it lies in the province of Shensi. The Sin became independent in Western China, their princes reigning there for some 650 years before they finally gained dominion over the whole land. In the third century BC, the dynasty of Tsin became supreme. In 217BC, Prince Cheng, founder of the Ch'in Dynasty (from which the name "China" is taken) unified China and took the title of Shih Hwang-ti (First Emperor). Shih Hwang-ti built much of the Great Wall of China, and a network of roads and canals that converged on his capitol, near modern Sian, in Shensi province.

The word Tsin itself came to have the meaning of purebred. Hence non-Chinese are regarded as barbarians. This word was assumed as a title by the Manchu Emperors and is believed to have been changed by the Malays into the form Tchina and brought into Europe by the Portuguese as China. Chinese and surrounding languages form part of the Sino-Tibetan language family. Years ago, newspapers regularly carried headlines with reference to the conflict between the Chinese and Japanese in which the ancient name reappeared in its original form, for they commonly spoke of the Sino-Japanese war.

With respect to the Cathay people of historical reference, it would make sense to suppose that the remnants of the Hittites, after the destruction of their empire, travelled towards the east and settled among the Sinites who were relatives, contributing to their civilization, and thus becoming the ancestors of many Asian people groups including the Khazar or Ashkenazim "Jews." Still others migrated throughout the region and beyond, making up the present-day Mongoloid races in Asia and the Americas. What the Chinese call "Hsiung-nu" are the Turko-Mogul nomad tribes we know as "Huns".

China is unique among the great civilizations in that at no time in its long history has it produced a strong, priestly group. Chinese attitudes towards religion are a mixture of superstition and practicality. They have never persecuted on religious grounds and there are few Chinese martyrs.

In spite of their Hamitic descent, the Canaanites spoke a Semitic language . . . "so close as would deceive the very elect if it were possible" (Matthew 24:24). At last we can understand the motives behind "multiculturalism" as we realize that the tribe who proposed and forced this curse of God upon Adam's race today are kin to the tribes being imposed upon us, fulfilling the prophecy of our Lord Jesus: that "as it was in the days of Noah"—miscegenation with these immoral people would repeat (Genesis 1:11; 6:1-4; Matthew 24:37-38).

Arvadite, means "breakaway" or "restless wanderer." Arvad settled on the Phoenician Island of Arad off the coast of Lebanon near Tripoli.

Zemarites, means "double woollens." They settled the coast adjacent to the Arvadites.

Hamathites, means "fortress" or "enclosure of wrath." They dwelt in Hamath, the chief city of upper Syria on the Orontes river.

Shem, literally means "renown." His descendants settled in Arabia. Shem is so familiar to us that we have no need to discuss him in this study, the purpose of which is to identify the peoples of Japheth, Ham and Canaan.

Elam, means "eternity." He settled a province east of Babylon and northeast of the lower Tigris and just north of Persia. He is the father of the Kurds and Iranians.

Asshur is the same name as Asher and means "happy" or "successful." He is ancestor to the Assyrians or Northern Iraqis.

Aprhaxad, means "he cursed the breast bottle." He was the ancestor of the Chaldeans of Southern Iraq, Hebrews, Arabians, Amorites, and the Moabites/Jordanians.

Lud, means "firebrand" or "travailing." He is the ancestor of the Lydians who settled in Asia Minor and spoke an Indo-European language.

Aram, means "highland." He became the Aramaeans or Syrians and Lebanese.

Uz, means "counsel." Northern Arabia, the land of Job (Job 1:1) between Babylonia and Edom, seems his most likely area of settlement.

Eber, means "emigrants" or "to vanish to the region beyond." Eber is the father of the Hebrews.

Peleg, comes from the root word "palag," which means (literally or figuratively) "division" or to split (Genesis 10:25). This notice refers not to the general dispersion subsequent to the Deluge, but to the division of the Semitic family of Eber himself between the Abrahamic line in Peleg, who remained in Mesopotamia (there is a town named Phaliga at the junction of the Chaboras with the Euphrates), and the Arabic line in Joktan who migrated into Southern Arabia.

Joktan, means "smallness" or "insignificance." He is the progenitor of no less than thirteen southern Arabian tribes. Only the purest Arabs (it is still maintained), are those Semitic Arabs descended from Joktan; whilst the Hamitic Arabs are referred to somewhat disdainfully as Musta 'rabs, that is, pretended Arabs.

Almodad, means "not measured." His area of settlement cannot be precisely determined, perhaps Yemen.

Sheleph, means "a drawing out." He became a Yemeni tribe of Arabs.

Hazarmaveth, means "settlement of death." He settled in south-east Arabia.

Jerah, means "new moon." He dwelt on the south-east Arabian coast.

Hadoram, means "noble honour." He dwelt in southern Arabia.

Uzal, means "I shall be flooded." He dwelt in Yemen.

Diklah, means "palm grove." Transposed into the Greek "Tigris," it is supposed that they settled in the north-eastern extremity of the Arabian Peninsula.

Obal, means "stripped bare." He became a Yemeni tribe.

Abimael, means "my father is God." He became a Yemeni tribe.

Sheba, means "seven" or "an oath." He too became a Yemeni tribe.

Ophir, means "reducing to ashes." He dwelt on the coast of south-west Arabia.

Havilah, means "circle" or "writhe (in anguish)." He occupied the eastern shore of the gulf of Aquaba.

Jobab, means "He will cause crying." He settled close by present-day Mecca.
