  1. Edom comes from the word “Adom” – the color Red, and not from “Adam” (human).
    Some say it’s because of the red hair of Esav and some say it’s because of the red color of the land and mountains of that kingdom.

      You’re right about that. I just checked it. But as a Hebrew speaker, I must say that there is not a certain explanation to that verse. It might be naming the people , and it might be naming the stew as edom. It sounds as if it is a remark of the writer in retrospect, and it might not. No one can tell for sure. And as you know, in the bible there are always two or three versions to the same story. I would rather see that as a forced explanation of the writet. I’d prefer the story about the redness of the land and mountains of that kingdom. Check on google : mountains of Edom. They are really RED ☺

    • You’re misled John Do, the video says the hebrew word for EDOM is SPELLED the same way as the hebrew word for ADAM, not that they have the same meaning. That is, the way both words are spelled in hebrew is the same, but when the word is meant to be pronounced EDOM it referes to the people descendant of Esauh who got this name because of his skin color as we read in Gen 25:25 meaning “red”, but when the word is meant to be pronounced ADAM it referes to the first human being from whom we get the name for our entire race meaning ‘humanity’ as the guys from TBP explains brilliantly. Praise God!

  2. I seriously love this channel! I binge watch it everyday along with reading my bible. I really enjoy how you guys break down the bible and make it easier to understand the concepts! I pray that God will continue to bless you guys abundantly! This project is awesome. I will be donating money very soon!!!

    • +Shaylah M : You would love the “TRUTH ” even more because YOU MY HEBREW ISRAELITE SISTER come from the 12 tribes of Israel and the speaker in this video comes from the bloodline of Esau-Edom. Read the book of Deuteronomy 28:15-68 pay close attention to Deuteronomy 28:68 and you tell me that the Most High Yahuah didn’t record The TransAtlantic Slave Trade documented right there within the scriptures :

      And the Lord shall bring thee into Egypt again with “SHIPS”, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for BONDMEN and BONDWOMEN, and no man shall buy you .
      Deut 28:68 KJVA http://bible.com/546/deu.28.68.KJVA

      Meaning of BONDMEN AND BONDWOMEN Means “SLAVES” We as a people where the only people worldwide placed on “CARGO SLAVE SHIPS ” with Yokes of iron upon our necks. We are the Real Children of Israel Edom didn’t disappear off the face of the Earth the modern-day Edomite now hides behind our stolen identity they called themselves “JE (WISH) EDOMITE IMPOSTERS is what they really are he is correct about one thing our forefathers and foremothers broke our Elohim Yahuah’s Laws, Statutes and Commandments and was sent into captivity for breaking the Covenant with Yahuah and he sent his only begotten son Yahushua the Messiah to come for only the lost sheep of Israel meaning he only came to save his people because only his people had the Laws, Statutes and Commandments that got us into big, big trouble with our Elohim Yahuah in the first place the Heathen Nations never have our ELOHIM’S LAWS, STATUTES AND COMMANDMENTS IN the first place. Check out Brother Yarashalam’s videos just eirther place his name or his old username Draw Back Jacob. He goes over the scriptures precept upon precept, line upon line here a little and there a little. Please reseach this for yourself my Hebrew Israelite Sister a Gentile can’t teach you who you are and besides the Elite Zionist Edomite racist white Supremacist and the average Edomite person (White person) don’t even know their EDOM/ESAU/EDOMITES. Place into the YouTube search White people telling the truth or Edomites telling the truth with scriptures to prove they are telling the Real Children of Israel the so-called Negroes that were scattered all over the world that they are the true chosen people of Yahuah….let them tell you first than maybe just maybe you’ll believe your people if you decide to study Yahuah’s word with fresh eyes as if born again as a child with an open clear mind with no preconceived notions. Also check out Israel’s Church by Brother Reggie, Yona Golab by Brother Yona Golab, TribeofJudahteach by Brother Chaazawan these are good Children of Israel teachers to start with but first hear the TRUTH from the White first that we are the Real Children of Israel not the Caucasian race. Happy researching my Hebrew Israelite Sister. Shalom…..!!! Remember the Title I give you to place first into the YouTube search engine “White people telling the truth or The Edomites telling the truth either or will pull up videos.

    • After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands; and they cry out with a loud voice, saying,
      “Salvation to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
      Revelation 7:9-10

      The teaching presented above by Michael JoToya Jackson is so off the mark. It appeals to the flesh and is not from the Spirit of Truth.

    • Esau is Hebrew for hairy, and he was called this at birth because he was well, hairy. His descendants were called Edom(ites) which means Red, because his hair was Red.

      Genesis 25:25 – The first to come out was red, and his whole body was like a hairy garment; so they named him Esau (NIV)

      Adam, is the Hebrew word for human.

    • In case someone get mislead, the video says the hebrew word for EDOM is SPELLED the same way as the hebrew word for ADAM, not that they have the same meaning. That is, the way both words are spelled in hebrew is the same, but when the word is meant to be pronounced EDOM it referes to the people descendant of Esauh who got this name because of his skin color as we read in Gen 25:25 meaning “red”, but when the word is meant to be pronounced ADAM it referes to the first human being from whom we

  3. Not true whites and all the other nations are going into slavery under the Israelites aka the 12 tribes of Israel including those fake white Jewish people who are the really Amalekites defendants of Amalek and Esau’s grandson. After 1000 years of slavery the whole white race are going to be destroyed!!! There is no hope for whitey!!! God hates Esau and all his descendants, the Edomites.

  4. no ggg is right. Esau was red so hence white. his father was rainbow so his skittles were a reflection of his ting and yang. Gag you are right white people suck and are the crappiest of skittles. thanks for keeping it real.

  5. I love this channel. I have been binge watching! Thank you! It has enlightened my mind on who G-d is and how He relates to us! Brings another perspective to what I’ve been going through

  6. Today is May 13th, the day of reading Obadiah or ‘Ovadyah! Praise God! Looking forward to it..o/
    Thy Kingdom come my Lord! Thy Kingdom come!

Praise God!
