The Hebrew Disease

Christ Crucified

Jesus was a Judahite. A real Hebrew.

All His Hebraic kinsmen are long gone and irrevocably dead.

“Behold, your house is being left to you desolate!” Matthew 23:38

Still, many today call themselves Hebrews. Some do it because being “the Hebrews of the bible” makes them feel special, while others simply misappropriate it to fulfill their own agenda.


Pretending to be a Hebrew is a spiritual disease because a) it is a lie b) it places the flesh above the spirit man, and c) it is self-debasement since those who do it project the dead unto themselves, thus sending the message that the dead are better than they.

“Let the dead bury their own dead.” Matthew 8:22

There are 4 groups today that are pretending to be Hebrews.

1. Jews. Non-Hebraic Rabbinists (followers of the Babylonian Talmud) have been using the “Jew” appellation since the late 18th Century in order to appear to be Judahite Hebrews. That way people could see them as the Chosen People, while they endeavored to steal Palestine without the objection of the Christian world. See How The Ashkenazi Jews Conquered the West. However, the great majority of Jews have wholeheartedly bought into the propaganda that they’re actually Judahite Hebrews. It’s no wonder Jews are prone to schizophrenia and other mental illnesses, and twice as likely to be homosexuals (with Tel Aviv, Israel as the gay capital of the world). Their fake identity causes a spiritual imbalance which disturbs their mental and sexual processes.

“You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.” Matthew 23:27

“God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.” Romans 1:28

2. Some Blacks. Those poor souls are fooling themselves into believing that they are Black Hebrew Israelites. And what is their reason to label themselves so? One can only assume that hundreds of years of subjugation of the African continent by European powers, along with slavery and segregation in the West, have created an inferiority complex that needs a “Special People” antidote.

3. Some Europeans. Their Hebrew pretense is found mostly in British Israelism. That ridiculous notion started in the early 1850s, more than two millennia after the destruction of the Kingdom of Israel – that’s our cue to jump in the time machine and shout, “Wait a minute, only now you come up with that?” :-)  The main purpose of British Israelism was to squash the rumblings of the conquered people of the British Empire, and cement the empire’s “legitimacy”. The empire on which the sun never sets started in earnest in the 1500s, had by 1922 approximately 458 million people under its control, and covered roughly 13,000,000 square miles. By the British King pretending to be a descendant of the Biblical King David (by inference Jesus Himself, Son of David), he could strike reverence (and even fear) in the hearts of a) his own people at home in order to secure his throne, and b) his then subjugated people in foreign countries, forced at that point to look upon their masters as “Revered Biblical Individuals” who were only occupying them for their own good. An offshoot of British Israelism is Nordic Israelism. The Scandinavians basically said, “Hey, why not us too?” Their ridiculous claim had the same purpose: to prop up the Danish and Swedish Empires. Still, many European citizens have bought into said fallacy and actually consider themselves Hebrew Israelites.

4. Some Asians. Those who think they’re Hebrews are found mostly in the Philippines. Theirs is a case of mistaken identity and bad history. Many Sephardic Jews fled Spain during the Inquisition. Most of them took refuge in North Africa. However, a small number did travel all the way to the Philippines. There, many Filipinos mistook them for Hebrews, which they’re obviously not. And because most Sephardim have Spanish-sounding  last names like the Filipinos, many Filipinos assumed that they too were Hebrews. Another group of Filipinos actually think that they’re the descendants of the Levites, whom King Jeroboam kicked out of the kingdom of Israel around 975 BC. However, the Levites did not go to the Philippines but to next door Judah. Read A Brief History of the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah.


Even if there were still Hebrews around – though they assuredly are NOT – it wouldn’t matter.

a. The New Covenant changes everything.

“By calling this covenant new, he has made the first one obsolete and what is obsolete is outdated.” Hebrews 8:13

The New Covenant trumps the Old Covenant in every aspect, no matter what anyone may infer from what the Old says about the ancient Hebrews.

“For if there had been nothing wrong with that first covenant, no place would have been sought for another.” Heb 8:7

b. God couldn’t care less.

“There is neither Judahite nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all ONE in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3: 28

Jesus died so that we can all become part of His family, which is the only way to be humbly special.

Nothing else will do.


All these appellations of “Chosen People”, “Special People”, “Revered Biblical Individuals”, “Hebrews”, “Israelites”, and “Jews” are the vanity of the flesh and the pride of life.

“For everything in the world–the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life–comes not from the Father but from the world.” 1 John 2:16

Consequently, a relationship with Jesus is the crux of the matter, as it is the only way to become part of God’s family – join God’s family here – especially since there will be consequences for rejecting Him.

That’s really what all these pretend Hebrews should focus on.

“For both the One who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are of the same family. That is why Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers.” Hebrews 2:11

  1. I wrote this comment at THE CHOSEN PEOPLE SYNDROME article, but I think it’s appropriate here too:

    How sick can a people be to pretend to be what they’re not? Here’s how I see it.

    Imagine you dress in Halloween clothes every day of your life pretending to be Zorro. Everyone would think you’re crazy and you’d probably be interned in the nut house with heavy medication.

    These “Jews” have not only been dressing up in “Hebrew” Halloween clothes since the late 18th century, they’ve dispossessed an entire people (Palestinians) of their land.

    What should then be the consequences? Nut house or the Hague?

    I say the Hague first, then pariah status, and finally jail for all the criminals.


  2. How sad. People should not be worrying about race. They should be worried about their spirit. Jesus put it quite succinctly, as you clearly mention in the article:

    “There is neither Judahite nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all ONE in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3: 28

    Hope these pretend Hebrews take that to heart. Hope everyone takes that to heart. The flesh will rot, but the spirit will endure.
