May 9, 2003 when I went outside at 6:15 am all was white with about 1 inch of new snow last night on my tomatoes.     Winter is still here I guess? It has not passed total yet?  See what happens when it is passed.   CLICK HERE  When winter is passed read it all.

Ulster (North Ireland) has the red hand as its symbol. Why? CLICK HERE see Ulster flag.  See Genesis 38: 28 Zarah put his hand out of the womb first.
When we look back in Genesis of the Bible we read about the reasons for conflict today. Recall that after the sons of Jacob sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites, and he ended up in Egypt. (Genesis 37) The other brothers deceived their father Jacob and said Joseph was dead.  Judah (father of Jews) married a Canaanite woman; who gave Judah three sons, Er and Onan and Shelah. (Genesis 38) Years later Judah got a wife for Er, his firstborn, and she was named Tamar. She was not of the forbidden races. But Er was a wicked man the son of a Canaanite wife and the Lord slew him. So Judah said to Onan to take Tamar to wife and raise children up to Er.  But Onan was wicked also and spilled his seed on the earth rather than come into Tamar’s womb. So the Lord slew him also. So Judah said to Tamar, just live as a widow until my son Shelah grows to manhood. Judah was afraid that when Shelah was grown he would die also in Tamar’s bed. So he sent her to her fathers house to live.
Years later when Judah’s Canaanite wife had died, one day Judah was on his way to Timnah to shear his sheep. Tamar had waited some years for Shelah to grow up but Judah never gave here to him because he was afraid for Shelah’s life. Tamar was told about Judah’s travel, so she disguised herself as a local prostitute and waited till Judah came by. Remember she was not of any forbidden race.
Nor was Judah
. She played the role as a harlot, and Judah propositioned her for sex. She got his pledge of his staff, seal, and cord. She got pregnant from that encounter, and gave birth to twin boys. Pharez and Zarah with a red string tied on to his hand. (Genesis 38:30)  Many generations later the bloodline of Pharez, from Judah and Tamar, was the bloodline of David, Solomon, and Jesus Christ. It was a pure bloodline of Israel.   CLICK HERE to see more about Tamar.

16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.”   Matthew 1: 1- 16    Why keep the records of your ‘genes’? Because God has said it matters. You are a composite of your ancestors.
We know that Mary the mother of Jesus was also of the tribe of Judah, because:

“And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”   Luke 1: 30- 33         (So are you of the house of Jacob?)

“He (Christ) was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.        (So how will you ever get to know Christ?                                             By keeping all of his commandments.)
11 He came unto his own, (tribe of Judah) and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name."         John 1: 10- 12

 In Genesis 46: 8-31 we read: “And these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt, Jacob (Israel) and his sons: Reuben, Jacob's firstborn.
9 And the sons of Reuben; Hanoch, and Phallu, and Hezron, and Carmi.
10 And the sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman.

11 And the sons of Levi; Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.
12 And the sons of Judah; Er, and Onan, and Shelah, and Pharez, and Zerah: but Er and Onan died in the land of Canaan.  And the sons of Pharez were Hezron and Hamul.
13 And the sons of Issachar; Tola, and Phuvah, and Job, and Shimron.
14 And the sons of Zebulun; Sered, and Elon, and Jahleel.
15 These be the sons of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob in Padan-aram, with his daughter Dinah: all the souls of his sons and his daughters were thirty and three.
16 And the sons of Gad; Ziphion, and Haggi, Shuni, and Ezbon, Eri, and Arodi, and Areli.
17 And the sons of Asher; Jimnah, and Ishuah, and Isui, and Beriah, and Serah their sister: and the sons of Beriah; Heber, and Malchiel.
18 These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to Leah his daughter, and these she bare unto Jacob, even sixteen souls.
19 The sons of Rachel Jacob's wife; Joseph, and Benjamin.
20 And unto Joseph in the land of Egypt were born Manasseh and Ephraim,
which Asenath the daughter of Poti-pherah priest of On bare unto him.
21 And the sons of Benjamin were Belah, and Becher, and Ashbel, Gera, and Naaman, Ehi, and Rosh, Muppim, and Huppim, and Ard.
22 These are the sons of Rachel, which were born to Jacob: all the souls were fourteen.
23 And the sons of Dan; Hushim.
24 And the sons of Naphtali; Jahzeel, and Guni, and Jezer, and Shillem.
25 These are the sons of Bilhah, which Laban gave unto Rachel his daughter, and she bare these unto Jacob: all the souls were seven.
26 All the souls that came with Jacob (Israel) into Egypt, which came out of his loins, besides Jacob's sons' wives, all the souls were threescore and six;

27 And the sons of Joseph, which were born him in Egypt, were two souls: (Ephraim and Manasseh) all the souls of the house of Jacob, which came into Egypt, were threescore and ten.  (= 70 people.)
28 And he sent Judah before him unto Joseph, to direct his face unto Goshen;
and they came into the land of Goshen.
29 And Joseph made ready his chariot, and went up to meet (Jacob) Israel his father, to Goshen, and presented himself unto him; and he fell on his neck, and wept on his neck a good while.
30 And (Jacob) Israel said unto Joseph, Now let me die, since I have seen thy face, because thou art yet alive.
31 And Joseph said unto his brethren, and unto his father's house, I will go up, and shew Pharaoh, and say unto him, My brethren, and my father's house, which were in the land of Canaan, are come unto me.”       Genesis 46: 8-31

Many times in your Bible all of those tribes of Israel are listed. The promises and blessings in your Bible are to those tribes of Israel. When you read about Israel in the Bible it means those decendants of Jacob-Israel. Not just the Jews today, but all the tribes of the children of Jacob-Israel.

If you will read with your eyes open we can trace all the Royal families in Europe nations to that royal bloodline. In real fact the whole Bible is written for the people who have the “Genes” of Noah.  “These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.”  Genesis 6: 9   Noah had perfect ‘genes.’ And so did Jacob.

Now let us look at the Zarah line from Judah and Tamar who played the harlot. 
“THESE are the sons of (Jacob) Israel; Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah, Issachar, and Zebulun,
2 Dan, Joseph, and Benjamin, Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.
3 The sons of Judah; Er, and Onan, and Shelah: which three were born unto him of the daughter of Shua the Canaanitess.  And Er, the firstborn of Judah, was evil in the sight of the LORD; and he slew him.  (He didn’t have perfect genes.)

4 And Tamar his daughter in law bare him Pharez and Zerah. 
All the sons of Judah were five.
5 The sons of Pharez; Hezron, and Hamul.

6 And the sons of Zerah; Zimri, and Ethan, and Heman, and Calcol, and Dara: five of them in all.”    1 Chronicles 2: 1- 6

What really happened was that the Zerah line ceased to be prominent in Egypt in just three generations. Calcol and Dara and their children had left and gone elsewhere. Where had they gone long before Moses was born? And the Exodus began when he was eighty years old. Those ‘Israelites’ of Judah had been gone centuries before.   Well Calcol had migrated to Spain and had built a city called Zarahgassa, that means in Hebrew, “The stronghold of Zarah” in the valley by the Ebro River. That river was named after Eber (Genesis 11) the father of the Hebrews.  We read in Genesis 11 that from Shem the son of Noah came Eber. Then following on we read a few more generations and then Abram, who was Abraham. Then we see that:
“And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.
13 And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for he dwelt bin the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eschol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with Abram.”   Genesis 14: 12- 13

That is the 1st time the word ‘Hebrew’ is in your Bible. It was for Abraham the descendant of Eber. Zarah was from Abraham, Isaac, Jacob-Israel, Judah and Tamar the mother of Pharez and Zarah who was father to Calcol and Dara.

Today (2003) we still call that city Zaragoza in North East Spain.    
In later years Calcol left Spain and settled in North Ireland. Remember that
Zarah was the twin son that had the scarlet thread tied around his hand when he stuck it out of his mother Tamar before he was born. We read:
“And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom.  And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt.
25 When she was brought forth, she sent to her father in law, saying, By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said, Discern, I pray thee, whose are these, the signet, and bracelets, and staff.
26 And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She hath been more righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son.  And he knew her again no more.
27 And it came to pass in the time of her travail, that, behold, twins were in her womb.
28 And it came to pass, when she travailed, that the one put out his hand: and the midwife took and bound upon his hand a scarlet thread, saying, This came out first.
29 And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out: and she said, How hast thou broken forth?  this breach be upon thee: therefore his name was called Pharez.
30 And afterward came out his brother, that had the scarlet thread upon his hand: and his name was called Zarah.”  Genesis 38: 24- 30

Remember we saw the the Irish RED Hand sometimes shown circled with the red cord. Going back over 3600 years. That is my bloodline. From Ulster Ireland. The Ulster Irish of Judah, with the RED Lion of Judah crossed the sea and invaded the Scottish highlands. The rampant (standing) RED Lion is found in symbols of North Ireland, Scotland, and Wales today. The highland Scotts don’t eat pork products either because they are forbidden in Leviticus 11:7 & Deuteronomy 14:8
“And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.”  Leviticus 11:7
“And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it is unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcase.”   Deuteronomy 14: 8

About one third of the past American Presidents have Irish Genealogies. President Bush’s bloodline can be traced back there also.     
Perhaps you have heard of the finest linens in the world. “Irish linen” is used in the very best hotels around the world. In every country.
“The sons of Shelah the son of Judah were, Er the father of Lecah, and Laadah the father of Mareshah, and the families of the house of them that wrought fine linen, of the house of Ashbea.”    1 Chronicles 4: 21
In south Ireland today the name Erin is a popular name. Remember that Shelah was the son of the Canaanite wife. His descendants today populate some of Ireland in the south. The conflict with the British, and in North Ireland, Gerry Adams and IRA in Ireland, Sinn Fein goes back thousands of years because of Canaanite blood.
Shela is a popular Irish name for girls today. About 50 million Americans have Irish bloodlines from all over the lands of Ireland. The south is most Catholic and the north Protestant. Just as the east coast of USA is Irish Catholic, and to the west Protestant Irish bloodlines.  Billions of ‘genes’ make up your DNA. God knows.  
Dara the brother of Calcol had founded the city of Troy. The waterway called the Dardanelles today between Turkey and Greece are so name because of Dara.
They became the famous Trojan warriors. And Brutus migrated from there and founded the city of London in England. (Bull-land.) ‘Eng’ in Hebrew means ‘bull.’ Eng-lish are ‘bullheaded’ the Hebrew word ‘ish’ means ‘man.’ So they are the bullman.
Now do you know why the Span-ish ‘man’ want to fight the bulls in the ring in bullfights? Or why God protected English ships from the Great Spanish Armada of 130 ships, and destroyed all but 67 of them in 1588. Over 20,000 Spanish died, and 100 English sailors were wounded.  The English ships did little damage. As of this morning May 9, 2003 it is almost 415 years ago that the Armada left the early morning departure from Spain in the summer of 1588 with 130 ships headed for the English Channel. Only 67 returned. Some huge ships had 4 masts and 600 to 800 men on board. The winds and waves of nature (God) protected the English Isles from the great Catholic invasion of King Phillip of Spain who was determined to stamp out the Protestants. It was the act of nature never see before in such great  astounding fury that annihilated the Spanish ships.  The great sea power shifted to the British Isles. After the Spanish Armada was destroyed, 352 years later in May 1940 the German Army had the British trapped at Dunkirk. The city was on fire. Yet the English Channel became as smooth as glass. And even small personal boats were used to save the 338,226 (1/3 million) men from death at the German troops. The city on fire at night guided the small boats across the Channel to Dunkirk. The smoke in daytime showed where the men were at on the beach.
So do you know what can happen in 400 years since Sir Francis Drake fought the Armada? The children of Abraham through Jacob were in captivity about 400 years. Then Moses came upon the scene.  The USA has almost reached the 400 year mark since the Pilgrims landed here. Would you like to watch what happens here in the next 400 years? Some people will get to live to see it all happen in the Millennium. I have written about some of this before. CLICK HERE see that. 

“God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
4 For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.
5 They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were troubled, and hasted away.
6 Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail.
7 Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.”  
Psalms 48: 3- 7

The ancient ships of Tarshish were ships of the Atlantic coast of Spain. Spoken about in the Psalms about 2500 years before it happened to King Phillip's ships.  The sea power was promised to the children of Israel thousands of years before it happened. Who could plan for that to happen and have it recorded for the future? Only God, who knows what will happen.
He has written HIStory.

"Produce your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob.
22 Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.
23 Shew the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods: yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold it together."           Isaiah 41: 21- 23

“As the valleys are they spread forth, as gardens by the river's side, as the trees of lign aloes which the LORD hath planted, and as cedar trees beside the waters.
7 He shall pour the water out of his buckets, and his seed shall be in many waters, and his king shall be higher than Agag, and his kingdom shall be exalted.
8 God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows.
9 He couched, he lay down as a lion, and as a great lion: who shall stir him up?  Blessed is he that blesseth thee, and cursed is he that curseth thee.”           Numbers 24:69

Brith =‘covenant’ ish =‘man’ or British in Hebrew the 'Covenant man.' The British Commonwealth of nations, are many nations. God had foretold: God keeps covenants even when men don't.
“And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel.    (Now Jacob-Israel.)
11 And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins.”         Genesis 35: 10- 11
That company of nations is the British Commonwealth. The ‘a nation’ is the USA. And so the tribes of Jacob – Israel today are scattered as nations, and also some of the chosen are all gathered together in the United States of America.
The word America means Amer = heavenly, Rica = kingdom. Heavenly kingdom in America. CLICK HERE to see who is to control the seas of this world. Read more about Dara also on that link. Perhaps your ancestor? 

“And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
4 Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.
5 Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.”     Isaiah 60: 3-5

By the time this war coming is over, many millions of the sons and daughters from all of the tribes of the children of Israel around the world will have come to the United States. To the prophesied ‘heavenly kingdom’ for the Millennium.

I began this with the comment that winter has not passed yet. All my tomatoes froze last night. May 10, 2003 with a new dusting of snow. And Saddam Hussein is still alive somewhere. And Gordon B.
