Interacial Marriages

  • Regarding the children of Israel, the house of Alahayim is built up a spiritual house, {1 Pet 2:5} so not all Israel is of Israel {Rom 9:6} because a Jew isn't one outwardly { Rom 2:27} but the true Jews are Jews inwardly whose circumcision is of the heart in the spirit {Rom 2:28} making them new creatures {Gal 6:15} and the Israel of Alahayim {Gal 6:16} that do the will of the Father {Matt 12:50} making them a "brother and sister":

Rom 9:6  

Not as though the word of Alahayim hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel

Rom 2:29  

But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of Alahayim.

Mat 12:50  

For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

1Pe 2:5  

Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to Alahayim by Yache Christ. 

  • Regarding the other nations, Yache came to reconcile the house of Alahayim and make us all one according to the Spirit, hence we are all brethren and sisters through him whether Jew or Gentile.

Eph 2:11-15,18-22
[11]Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by
that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

[12]That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers
from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without Alahayim in the world:
[13]
But now in Christ Yache ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
[14]For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

  • The Gentile races are near unto the Hebrew race by the blood of Christ to make us one people as Christian brothers and sisters.

[19]Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of Alahayim;

  • Peter was shown Alahayim is no respecter of persons and any nation can be accepted of him through righteousness:

Acts 10:34-35

34  Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that Alahayim is no respecter of persons:

35  But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him

  • Along with Peters revelations, he was shown marriage between Jews and believing Gentiles are lawful because the Gentiles when they believe and serve the same Alahayim and Lord Yache Christ, being fellow citizens with the saints: 

Acts 10:28
[28]And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company G2853, or come unto one of another nation;
but Alahayim hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.

Definition:

G2853

Thayer Definition:

1.to glue, to glue together, cement, fasten together

2.to join or fasten firmly together

3.to join one's self to, cleave to

Strong's Definition:

from kolla ("glue"); to glue, i.e. (passively or reflexively) to stick (figuratively):— cleave, join (self), keep company.

  • (Peter was shown that men and women of Israel (excluding the sons of Aaron, the priests) could indeed marry believing Gentiles because their hearts had been purified by faith and they were no longer common or unclean to keep company with)

Act 15:9  

And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.

Acts 10:15  

And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What Alahayim hath cleansed, that call not thou common. 

  • We would be kicking against Yache's reconciliation of all nations into one body to degrade marriages between believing brothers and sisters of any nation, save the sons of Aaron. Interracial marriage between believers is upright even as Yache's foreparents according to the flesh, Ruth of Moab and Rahab of Canaan, who were faithful from amongst the Gentiles. We just have to look at the laws to understand what Alahayim desires brothers and sisters to abide by for marrying righteously because there are some prohibitions for Christians. Its not righteous to marry a strange woman who is not of the daughters of Abraham by faith (Israel) or through faith (Gentiles) lest they turn our hearts away from Ahayah:

Joseph and Asenath 7:6

6.    For Joseph had Alahayim always before his 2 eyes and ever remembered the injunctions of his father; for Jacob often spake and admonished his son Joseph and all his sons : " Keep yourselves, children, securely from a strange woman so as not to have fellowship with her, for fellowship with her is ruin and destruction."

  • In addition to avoiding strange women, we are further admonished in wisdom not to give our strength (seed) unto strange women keeping our virginity sound until given a wife from the Lord:

Ecclesiasticus 26:19 

My son, keep the flower of thine age sound; and give not thy strength to strangers.

  • Keeping the flower of our age (virginity) sound, when given a fruitful possession (daughter of Abraham in faith) in marriage as a wife is from the Lord {Pro 19:14}, we are guided to sow our seed and beget children by the wife that is bringing forth good fruits in the faith: 

Ecclesiasticus 26:20 

When thou hast gotten a fruitful possession through all the field, sow it with thine own seed, trusting in the goodness of thy stock.

  • Its a command not to marry strange women:

Deu 7:3

Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.

Deu 7:4

For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other alahayims: so will the anger of AHAYAH be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.

  • Solomon's faults were a testimony of the results of marrying unbelieving women of any nation:

Neh 13:26

Did not Solomon king of Israel sin by these things? yet among many nations was there no king like him, who was beloved of his Alahayim, and Alahayim made him king over all Israel: nevertheless even him did outlandish women cause to sin.

Neh 13:27

Shall we then hearken unto you to do all this great evil, to transgress against our Alahayim in marrying strange wives?

  • The Jews transgressing by taking strange wives edify us to ensure we take wives of the true children of Abraham:

Tob 4:12  

Beware of all whoredom, my son, and chiefly take a wife of the seed of thy fathers, and take not a strange woman to wife, which is not of thy father's tribe: for we are the children of the prophets, Noe, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: remember, my son, that our fathers from the beginning, even that they all married wives of their own kindred, and were blessed in their children, and their seed shall inherit the land. 

  • We can make marriages with children of Noah (all nations) who believe in Yache because they are children of Abraham by faith (Israel) and through faith (Gentiles) regardless of their race.  Only the Sons of Aaron are prohibited to only marrying believers of the seed (bloodline) of the house of Israel. {Eze 44:22}

What if I married an unbeliever before coming to the knowledge of the Gospel in truth?

  • We, Jew and Gentile, have all been called to walk as we are:

1Co 7:17  

But as Alahayim hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches.

  • When a brother or sister is called, they may possibly be married to a person who doesn't believe the True Gospel of Christ. None the less, abide as you are called:

1Co 7:20  

Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.

  • Alahayim may have placed you with that person to save them:

1Co 7:16  

For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?

  • So if a newborn believer in the faith happens to be married to an unbeliever when they come into the faith, the unbeliever is sanctified by the believer:

1Co 7:14  

For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.

  • A believer walking as they are called is not to depart from an unbelieving spouse if that spouse is pleased to dwell with them respecting their walk in the faith:

1Co 7:12  

But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.
1Co 7:13  

And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.
It may be the will of Alahayim to save our spouse by your example of a believer so remaining with them and doing good works is important for converting them by one's actions and goodly words without hypocrisy:

1Co 7:16  

For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?

  • On the other hand, if the unbelieving spouse is not pleased to dwell with a believer and departs, the believer is not in bondage by the law to that marriage: 

1Co 7:15  

But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but Alahayim hath called us to peace.

  • If the unbelieving spouse departs for righteousness sake, one is loosed from a spouse, seek not another spouse, {1Co 7:27} but expend your labors on good works in the fruits of the Spirit, studying the scriptures for growth in your walk in the Gospel, and your flocks (children/work) until Ahayah gives you a spouse whom he wills so that you do not suffer from the spirit of lust and fornication to get into a bad relationship that Ahayah didn't ordain: 

1Co 7:27  

Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.

Testament of Reuben 4:1

Pay no heed, therefore, my children, to the beauty of women, nor set your mind on their affairs; but walk in singleness of heart in the fear of THE LORD, and expend labour on good works, and on study and on your flocks, until THE LORD give you a wife, whom He will, that ye suffer not as I did.

  • For the unmarried women or widows (60 yrs +), if you are loosed from a marriage, abide unmarried, but if you have the need for benevolence, you are free to marry whom you will in the Lord: 

1Co 7:8  

I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I. 

1Co 7:9  

But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.

1Co 7:39  

The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord. 

  • The younger women under the age of 60yrs old who are widowed are commanded to remarry by the ordinance of the Lord to give none occasion to the adversary:

1Ti 5:14 

 I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully

  • Younger women, even as men, have to expend their labors on good works in the fruits, studying the gospel to perfect their walk, and their flocks (children/work) until Ahayah give them as a wife to a man that fears the Lord:

Sir 26:3  

A good wife is a good portion, which shall be given in the portion of them that fear the Lord.

  • So sisters should also focus on their growth in the faith with patience until Ahayah provides a husband according to his will lest they fall into wickedness and be given to a wicked man:

Sir 26:23  

wicked woman is given as a portion to a wicked man: but a holy woman is given to him that feareth the Lord 

Unlawful interracial marriages for Israelites

 The Sons of Aaron

  • The Laws for the priests, which are the sons of Aaron, requires that they cannot marry any besides the believing maidens of the seed of the House of Israel or a believing widow of the seed of the house of Israel that was the wife of a priest before. Of course if one is already married to an unbeliever of any nation before coming into the knowledge of the truth, do not put away your wife, because we are called as we are. {I Cor 7:20} It would be a transgression of the law to divorce her since she hasn't committed fornication. {Matt 19:9} Ahayah has suffered the man to marry the woman before coming into the knowledge of the truth, so "what Alahayim hath joined together let no man put asunder." {Matt 19:3-6} Only take heed and do not marry another woman of Israel who is not a believing maiden, gentile of the flesh or widow that had been married to a priest before, now that one is a believer having knowledge of the law & keeping it by faith in Yache. 

Eze 44:15  

But the priests the Levites, the sons of Zadok, that kept the charge of my sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from me, they shall come near to me to minister unto me, and they shall stand before me to offer unto me the fat and the blood, saith the Lord AHAYAH:

Ezekiel 44:22

22  Neither shall they take for their wives a widow, nor her that is put away: but they shall take maidens of the seed of the house of Israel, or a widow that had a priest before.

the 12 tribes of Israel

  • The children of Israel, are prohibited from marrying the unbelievers of the children of Canaan. Fathers are also admonished not to give your daughters to the sons of Ham:

Jubilee 25:1

And in the second year of this week in this jubilee, Rebecca called Jacob her son, and spoke to him, saying: 'My son, do not take you a wife of the daughters of Canaan, as Esau, your brother, who took him two wives of the daughters of Canaan, and they have embittered my soul with all their unclean deeds: for all their deeds are fornication and lust, and there is no righteousness with them, for (their deeds) are evil.
Jasher 73:33-35

[33] For Moses remembered how Abraham made his servant Eliezer swear, saying unto him, Thou shalt not take a woman from the daughters of Canaan for my son Isaac.

[34] Also what Isaac did when Jacob had fled from his brother, when he commanded him, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan, nor make alliance with any of the children of Ham.

[35] For Ahayah our Alahayim gave Ham the son of Noah, and his children and all his seed, as slaves to the children of Shem and to the children of Japheth, and unto their seed after them for slaves, forever.

Jubilee 30:7

And if there is any man who wisheth in Israel to give his daughter or his sister to any man who is of the seed of the Gentiles he shall surely die, and they shall stone him with stones;

  • Now whatsoever thing the law says is for our admonition. The children of Ham are Egyptians, Cush, Philistines, Phut, and Canaanites. The law instructs the Israelites from making alliances with the children of Ham by giving our women unto them by commandment of Isaac our father:

    • The children of Ham are going to be servants in the kingdom so we are not to give our daughters unto them because she would be excluded from partaking in the heritage of her nation in the kingdom because she is counted under the inheritance of Ham in the kingdom if she is married to one of them and shall be in servitude in the kingdom, while the Hebrews and their households will rule under Yache in the Kingdom. It would be inexpedient after having spent our time in this world in bondage to give her unto Ham to be a servant in the next world as well. Of course if a woman is already married to one of the children of Ham before coming into the knowledge of the truth, if he is a believer, she still gets to partake in the kingdom none the less as well. If he is not a believer, she ought not leave her husband if he is pleased to dwell with her {1Co 7:13} since she sanctifies her husband {1Co 7:14} and may be with him to save him. {1Co 7:16}  It would be a transgression of the law to divorce him if he is pleased to dwell with her since he has not committed fornication as well. {Matt 19:9} Only take heed to abide in the faith if he is an unbeliever that he may repent and be saved by your chaste conversation and subjection to Yache in the faith.  

  1. Israelites are commanded not to marry the unbelievers of daughters of Canaan because they are prone to do evil. {Jubilee 27:8;20:4} Also, their seed (the males) that do not believe shall be rooted out,{Testament of Simeon 6:3; Jub 22:20} so we can't give our daughters to unbelieving men nor Ham's sons, or else we would be dooming them to pass away in the unbelief of the Canaanites. 

  2. Israelites cannot give our daughters unto the believers or unbelievers of children of Ham by command of Isaac because they will be servants in the kingdom to come. It will put our daughters in servitude unto the children of Shem and Japheth in the kingdom as oppose to the inheritance of dominion with the children of Israel. {Jasher 73:33-35}

  3. Israelites cannot give our daughters to the unbelievers of Philistines because their seed (the males) shall perish as well. {Jubilee 24:28-33} The Philistines are also children of Ham, so we cannot give our daughters unto them in marriage as Isaac commanded, but marriages may be made with believing sisters of the Philistines.

  4. Israelites cannot make marriages with the unbelievers of the Cappadocians,  {Testament of Simeon 6:3} because all the Cappadocians shall perish.

  5. Israelites cannot give our daughters unto unbelievers of the men of Edom because their unbelieving males will not have a remnant. {Jer 49:10; Oba 1:18; Gad the Seer 2:15-26} Yet, their shall be left as a believing remnant of the Tribe of Edom who are called by the name of Ahayah {Amos 9:12} and their believing women shall trust in Ahayah, {Jer 49:11 } so Israel, excluding Aaron's sons, may marry the believers of the children of Edom our brother because they are entered into the congregation through faith. {Deut 23:7-8} 

  6. Israelites are not to make marriages with the unbelievers of Amalek because there shall not be a remnant. {Num 24:20; Deut 25:19; 1 Sam 15:3; Testament of Simeon 6:3}

  7. Israelites are not to give our daughters unto the Moabites or Ammonites because their seed (males) shall be no more in the end {Jubilee 16:8-9} and their males cannot enter into the congregation.{Deut 23:2-3} Yet, their daughters belong to Ahayah {Gad the Seer 3:8} so we may make marriages with the believing daughters of  Moab and Ammon like Boaz did with Ruth the Moabite woman.

  8. Israelites are also not to make marriages with the unbelievers of children of Israel because not all Israel are of Israel {Rom 9:6;2:28-29} and all the sinners of our people shall perish, {Amos 9:8-10} so giving our daughter unto a sinner of Israel can cause her to perish with him {Eze 9:1-7;Rev 7:1-4;9:4} and taking an unbelieving Israelite for a wife is unlawful because she can cause our heart to turn away from Ahayah to serve idols.{Deut 7:3-4}
