This is Africa, the Land of Shem, a project aimed to display Africa as the land given to the family of Shem, Abram, and the House of Akobe. Today, we are doing something different; we take a moment to look at prophecy. We must view prophecy from the lens of Africa being the land where the majority of the events in the Bible took place.
We recently published a summary of Isaiah chapter 2 on our main platform. We thought, let us dig deeper and show the insight one would receive if they consumed Isaiah chapter 2 from an African perspective. In other words, the African version of Isaiah chapter 2.
Let’s go in.
Verse 1, The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Juda (Yawada / Yaounde) and Jerusalema.
First, we removed the “H” modifier, so the name only says, Juda. Plus we should be aware the letter “J” joined the alphabet five to six hundred years ago, quite naturally making Juda or Yuda, Uda. The “U” is truly the “W” and that’s why some old cartography maps display the name Whidah or Whida for Juda in some places.
So, some indigenous tribes that bear a name in West Africa such as “Udo” “Uda” “Wada” and others similar to their name, may be they are related to the tribe known as Juda in the Bible or from the Kingdom.
These maps were made popular a little over a decade ago by esteemed researcher, Lee B. Cummings and Brthr Nhmyh of the Negro Question book series (particularly book 2). Displayed on the map over what is called Nigeria today is the Kingdom of Juda. This was cartographed in 1747 by Emmanuel Bowden, the cartographer for England. Note, that he also called it the “Slave Coast.” In other words, a coast to retrieve slaves.
The point is Isaiah saw his visions concerning Juda and Jerusalema. Juda and Jerusalema were not in Nigeria, but Nigeria is where many of the people of Juda escaped during the siege by Babylon and later by Rome. Let’s continue.
Verse 2, And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Almighty’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
3, And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Almighty, to the house of the Creator of Jacob (Akobe); and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Almighty from Jerusalem.
We are not conclusive with this next statement, but we are working on concluding it. Zion is not a natural terminology from the scripture. We perceive Zion as ideally from Sion, and Sion is a conjure of Sinai and/or Siyoni (a Zulu translation of Sion). The significance of this is that Sinai is the original mountain of the Almighty, and Siyoni bears the phonetic sound of the original name. The African version of the name Moses was given to share with the children of Akobe was “I AM that I AM.”
The African or Shemetic version of I AM that I AM (in the Xhosa language) is SoNiNi NaNiNi. Siyoni to SoNiNi may not mean the same (and those who speak Zulu and Xhosa would know better than I do). Nevertheless, you cannot discount how closely related they are in sound and spelling. We believe this is where the name Zion comes from, much like Zair to Seir.
That is food for thought.
Verse 4, And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
When the Almighty arrives to judge the nations, He will rebuke or correct many people. Weapons of war will be converted into instruments for produce and vegetation. Violence will be eradicated, and the Art of War will be destroyed.
Verse 5, O house of Akobe, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the Almighty.
Thus, the plea is for the house of Akobe to walk in the knowledge or light of the Creator of Heaven and Earth.
6 Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers.
The Almighty had forsaken His people, who are the house of Akobe. Jacob is the modern “English” version of the name Akobe. See, remove the “J” and you will have Acob. Variations across the continent are displayed as Acob, Acobi, Acobe, Akobi, Akobe, etc.
The house of Akobe has been forsaken by their Maker and the reason why was provided. They have been replenished or filled with the influences from the East. This “east” is not about geography although it could lend itself to such. The “East” reference is about antiquity, ancient, and former things.
In other words, the house of Akobe reverted to the ancient Nimrod, Laban (brother of Rebeka), Canaan, and pre-flood service of religion and spirituality. This was expressed mainly through witchcraft, sculpted gods and images, and the worship of man and/or fallen spirits. These are the things the Philistines were into, Canaan, and even Abram’s people from Mesopotamia or Ur.
Hence the reason Abram was commanded to remove himself from them.
Abram vamoosed, but his offspring went back, first mentally, then spiritually, then finally, they were sent back as captives, physically. The ancestors of the children of Akobe loved soothsayers. Break the word down, “sooth” and “sayer.” Someone who says soothing things. For example, “God loves everybody and condones everything!”
We feel such a phrase is okay when we are thinking of things we are doing portrayed as bad by society but we feel they are okay. That’s when we are soothed to know He loves everyone. However, when people are doing things we don’t like, we all of a sudden do not feel God loves everyone and everything.
Get the picture!?
Nevertheless, a soothsayer is also an enchanter, sorcerer, fortuneteller, and could even mean barbarian. The house of Akobe loved these; soothsayers were and are everywhere on the continent and the world for that matter.
Lastly, they pleased themselves with the children of strangers. They made plenty of deals with the children of foreigners. The men took wives from outside nations, as did the women. But also, they made other merchant transactions or deals with these foreigners that were not in the best interest of the people. These deals were in the best interest of the strangers within them. Like trading land for weapons with a local tribe.
Take a moment to gather yourself. This is getting heavy! Let’s continue because we’re just getting started:
Verse 7, Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots:
The land given to Abram, Isaaka, and Akobe is the continent we call Africa. The land of Shem, we call it, and really the Land of SoNiNi, but we are reeling people in slowly. The idea of this project, Africa the Land of Shem alone gives people spiritual whiplash, due to years of programming and miseducation. We have to take it slow.
The land of Akobe is predominantly Sub-Saharan Africa. Verse seven says their land is full of silver and gold and underneath it all there is no end to their treasures. Look at the image below:
Gold is in the ground of places like Zimbabwe and Congo like dirt is in most people’s backyards in America. Imagine hair growing on a healthy man or woman’s head; when the hair is extracted or cut, new growth emerges. The gold in the ground of many of these nations once extracted is replenished like hair on the head.
What about the horses?
This will appear as if I’m trying to be right about the “Africa” assertion. It may feel like I’m “reaching” to make it fit my or this African agenda. I assure you, I am not, we are not; we are presenting what the Spirit shares with us. So here goes.
The reference to horses (in verse 7) is not about horses. I saw a video where a man showed there are no horses in Africa, thus Africa could not be the land in reference in the Bible.
But the scripture was not speaking of horses. It spoke about swift beasts. I originally thought horses were native and popular in Africa. But they are not, thus this scripture would not fit Africa or the land called Israel today in Northeast Africa.
It’s true, the horse isn’t native to Africa. But there are plenty of other genetically related horse-like beasts native to Africa. Such as the donkey, which is what the Anointed Son rode in on, and Balaam. Balaam’s donkey even spoke with him (hehe).
This verse in Isaiah does not say donkey, it says the horse. The idea that the horse is used in connection to scripture is a misnomer. The horse wasn’t tied to King David’s chariots. Instead, tied to his chariots were probably the Common Tsessebe, the Ostrich, and even the Zebra. Many of these beasts travel faster miles per hour than the horse. But, if these names were used in the scripture instead of the English and American “horse,” what would that make the scriptures look like?
Let’s continue: Verse 8, Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:
Robert Kinksy Collection (Finely Carved Dogon Ancestor idol, African Art)
Nothing against African Art, the art from the many families of both Shem and Japheth is magnificent. However, much of the African art, including those locked away in European museums, was made in dedication to their gods. Some of these are even images of their deities and gods. The land is full of idols, worshiping the work of their own hands and fingers.
Verse 9, And the mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not.
Because of their actions, the common man and the great man have both been humbled. They also receive no mercy or forgiveness.
10 Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the Almighty, and for the glory of his majesty. 11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the Almighty alone shall be exalted in that day.
Self-explanatory; the Almighty will be exalted at the end.
12, For the day of the Almighty of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:
The meek will inherit the earth; the lofty and proud will be brought low.
Verse 13, And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan, 14, And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up, 15, And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall, 16, And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures.
Everywhere these gods, images, and haughty lofty people are, it will all be brought low and torn down. As it was in the days of Josiah, king of Juda, when he cleared Juda of images and falseness, so it will be in the day of the Almighty.
Consider, the Oldfieldia africana, also known as the African oak, is a large tree that can grow to 36 meters (118 feet) or more in height. It is to be found across West Africa in such countries as Ivory Coast, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Gabon, Cameroon, Central African Republic, and Congo Republic.
This is to the west and central.
Then, also consider the Juniperus procera (known by the common English names African juniper, African pencil-cedar, East African juniper, East African-cedar, and Kenya-cedar) is a coniferous tree native to mountainous areas in Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. It is a characteristic tree of the Afromontane flora.
This is to the east.
The ships of Tarshish are those coming from Europe from the Mediterranean Sea to the southern capes.
The idea here is that from the east to west, north, and south, all the lofty will be brought down.
Verse 17, And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the Almighty alone shall be exalted in that day. 18, And the idols he shall utterly abolish. 19, And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the Almighty, and for the glory of his majesty, when he arises to shake terribly the earth.
In Revelation, chapter 6, verses 15 and 16 say, that the kings of the earth, great men, rich men, chiefs, captains, mighty men, bondmen, and everything in between will hide in dens and rocks of mountains. They will say to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of the Almighty and His Anointed.”
The Almighty will terribly shake the earth putting things back as it was intended.
Verse 20, In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats;
“Throw it out!”
Verse 21, To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the Almighty, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. 22, Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?
Men who have these idols will know exactly what time it is. They will all know what to do; Get rid of these idols and the wickedness they cause men to do.
Taking in Isaiah chapter 2 from this perspective, the African version of Isaiah chapter 2 does shed more light. In our book, Africa is the Land of Shem, we walk you from Genesis to Joshua.
We use the names found in the scripture, connecting them to ancient maps and current landscapes and maps today. Sure we have to redirect things that were changed when the enemies of the Almighty confiscated the records. However, this is about as thorough and accurate a story, a geographical story as any can get of the scriptures. And yes, it is based on the continent of Africa, the land of Shem.
Is that such a crime?
Is it a crime to suggest we have the geography wrong, by accident or dare I say, on purpose by wicked men who choose to know not their Creator? I still profess the Almighty, His Anointed Son, the keeping of the commandments, and all the laws, statutes, ordinances, and judgments of the Almighty. We are merely relocating the description of the land and that comes with the people.
Do not be on the wrong side of history with this.
Yet I do challenge any professor, scholar, pastor, prophet, or priest to do what we’ve done with the current land of Israel. Do it with Russia, do it with America, South America, or North America. Try this with Australia or Europe.
You will fall on your face, flat.
Because the truth alone, which is the Word of the Great Creator is the only thing that will stand. Now, we will continue to do this with the words of the prophets, Isaia, then Jeremia, and so forth.
Buckle yourself in, because you will realize how much of the scriptures have been omitted and how much have added and changed. All to mislead us all; Satan has deceived the whole world, and that is not an understatement.
Glory to the Almighty, honor to the Anointed Son. May His grace be upon you to uplift you and enrich you.
