  1. I love your videos and I was wondering if you all would ever consider doing a informative video about the geography in the bible as well as the division of ethnic groups after the flood. I find the genealogy in the bible really interesting and how a lot of it is getting closer towards Jesus. I also have a passion about the study of ethnicities, genetics and race(social construct) for example how Kemet (Egypt) are descendants of Ham on of the sons of Noah and just north of Upper Egypt (imagine the African continent upside down this is how Egypt and many african countries viewed themselves) were the Nubian people. I was also wondering about the different characters in the bible who were not Isralites such as Ruth.

    • +T.uYI -KANA Israelites were Negroes (NIger – Acts 13:1) research names from the slave trade ( and do a name search for “YAH” you will see many Hebrew names like Yeremiah (Jeremiah) etc.
      Deuteronomy 28:68 was the trans-atlantic slave trade prophecy and read the whole chapter for the context. Shalom.

    • James, we are not interested in the cult of Black Hebrew Roots.

      All lives matter, and God doesn’t see a skin. It’s outside, it’s superficial. Our blood is the same color, soul too.

      God bless

    • +TheNikolinho Yes all lives do matter, but right now in the USA black people are experiencing great harm because of police brutality, which has been swept under the rug for decades. Right now black lives are in danger and we are treated less than by the police, we want to remind people that Black lives matter because we are also humans. Of course all lives matter but right now in this very moment black lives are way more likely to be under theat in US compared to other races, so we say black Lives matter.

      Besides that everything else you said is correct, God doesn’t see race like we do, YHWH just sees Creation. But, let’s not ignore the issue of race and deal with it head on. There’s no point of being colour blind right now, because you miss out the entire picture.

    • With all due respect regarding how blacks may be treated, blacks DO in fact have civil rights and protections on the basis of their color. They also have people who support their equal rights and proper treatment.

      Homeless Americans (of all races) are criminalized or existing, have no way to enforce any rights they might have in theory, and remain the only American minority group that has no legal protections against discrimination – particularly employment discrimination. Homeless Americans are routinely harassed by the police, threatened, beaten, killed, spat upon, laughed at, mocked, humiliated and degraded, daily – while everyone blames them for their situation.

      Homeless Americans receive no meaningful press coverage for their inhumane treatment, and if they organize into groups, the police annihilate the group. Their camps which provide safety, security and companionship are ripped apart and thrown into the dumpster, and their few possessions seized and stolen by government. In Minnesota, the homeless are exterminated off-camera by sheer neglect and intimidation, while the news media laughs at homeless people who ask for news coverage. Even now, I am preparing to die from this.

      Yes, black lives matter. So do other peoples’ lives. Are your lives and your ability to pursue lives that have any meaning at all really being oppressed, when compared to roughly 3.5 million homeless Americans? Many of the homeless risked their lives in the military to defend the people who now leave them outside to die, or fought against domestic enemies on their fellow American’s behalf?

      I wish this country had some decent priorities, rather than always reacting to whichever group makes the most noise at any given moment. The homeless are living and dying in Third World conditions in 21st century America. Their lives matter.

  2. Greeting in the name of Jesus
