HYKSOS TO SATELLITES:
GOD'S IN CONTROL
My belief about the first period of Hyksos rule, which is founded in very little evidence, that evidence being mostly non-existant, is that the first Hyksos rulership of Egypt, well before Abraham's time, was headed by Shem after he defeated Ham, and eventually went to Palestine to found Salem. I don't have a "lock" on the time line, but the book of Jasher states that Abraham was taken by Terah to live with Noah and Shem for the 10th-49th years of his life. This of course is where he learned all that good stuff he taught the Egyptians.
The second period of Hyksos rule was from Joseph, spanning as much as 250 years until the Pharoah of Southern Egpyt "rebelled" and indentured the leftovers who didn't go out in the first exodus; namely the "tribe" of Zarah as leaders over many groups of immigrants to the north of Egypt. It is already well documented (check an encylopedia) that Darda and Calco, sons of Zarah, founded and ruled settlements/kingdoms in what would later be called Greece and Troy.
The terminus of this migration is very natural because during the 250 year rule of Joseph-Zarah in Egypt, the tribe of Dan pioneered all of Europe; naming all the rivers and other geographical benchmarks after himself, as was his wont. The briefest study of the rivers of east and west Europe will turn up many names that contain some form of the word Dan; Dan ube.
The Danite-Phoenicians had to scout out the route to be taken by the Lost Tribes on their trek to the place prophesied to David by Nathan in II Sam. The place where their traditional enemies would bother them no more.
Hyksos rule was carried out by the Adamic Priesthood and the Israelites. The last Adamic High Priest Shem ruled the first Hyksos period, and the Israelite/Hebrew sons of Jacob; Joseph, Zarah, et al, ruled the second.
Don't be fooled by the name Hyksos. It's a word like Scythian. It's only a description, not the name of the described. Scythian basically means nomad. They went around in succoths/scooths/scyths.
Hyksos only means "foreign." Foreign kings. Some like to say "Shepherd" kings. There weren't a people known as the Hyksos. This is very easy to understand when applying it to the second period of Hyksos rule. They were Isrealites, but to the Egyptians they were Foreign kings, Hyksos. Don't we get our version of the history of that time from the people who kept the records of that time? The Egyptians? They called the Isrealites what they wanted. And they hated the Israelite rule.
I've read that this is one of the reasons that there is so little mention of the Isrealites in history. It's as though(and some have offered this) the Exodus never occurred and those millions of folks are a product of imagination. I've heard of new rulership going around tearing down all the monuments/references to the hated regime they replaced. Simple enough to see the Egyptians doing the same.
But as many, more scholarly than I, will affirm, there is plenty of evidence in the corners that paints the true picture. It's just very hard to come by all in one place. One must take in such disparate sources as Gordon, Sitkin and Velikovsky.
I have found that the Study of the Lost Tribes is the study of the history of the earth. The Israelites virtually took over the planet. From Japan going west to California.
I know how broadbrushed that sounds, but consider. What was God accomplishing with all us Israelites? What is His ultimate goal for humanity? The "trees" are the Lost Tribes. The Forest is the total history of the Earth, as regards humanity. We have to back way away from the trees to see the Forest, no?
God's objective is to bring the knowledge of Himself and His coming earthly kingdom to all the folks on the planet. What better way than to lead groups of Israelites to all the corners. They will be the most receptive to God's call; when He chooses to wake them out of the "spritual sleep" of worshipping/recognizing other than Himself.
God works in the long term. Centuries before an event He'll send out the scouts, establish travel routes, prepare destinations for habitation, send rulers who will "instantly" embrace the "message/way"of those who come later. Brutus to found New Troy (London), Heremon to Ireland for the arrival of Tea. Esther, Tobit, etc. We accept this readily on the small scale of Joseph being "sent" to Egypt to prepare a place for his family. Why not out-scale this MO to include historical eras?
The Lost Tribes went to the Isles to prepare for the birth of Christianity. Those Druid priests "instantly" accepted the new system of belief brought to them by Joseph of Arimathea and the young Jesus. Isn't it a wonder that a national religion, centuries old would overnight melt into the English fog? Religions are harder to defeat than nations. The only explanation can be that Druidism was recognized as a corruption of God's Truth. It was so close to this "new" message that Druidism was immediately assimilated. One of the early converts to Christianity was the Arch Druid King Bran. He had stepped off the throne to become Arch Druid.
The Big Picture is that God sent Shem to prepare a fertile place for the birth of a nation (and then to another place to pre-establish the nation's capitol). In that place God built up the family of Abraham until they reached a size great enough to make a nation. Bringing them to a place of independence, He taught that nation and strenghtened it until it was time to prepare the way for Jesus. He led His people to northwest Europe and the British Isles, where they could "renew your strength"(Isaiah). In the process, God dropped "seeds" in all the other places on earth; akin to remote receiving stations waiting for the word to come.
Once this network was in place, Jesus arrived to prove God's reality and tell His message of the coming earthly kingdom. The message was birthed in Jerusalem, grew up in England, and, via the Israelite world network, spread around the globe. And now with satellite broadcasting (done mainly by Israelites), this message of the coming kingdom has touched every square inch of the earth.
"And then shall the end come." Praise God!
"...stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord..."
Thanks for listening.
I love mail.
