*One of the returned out of the Babylonian Captivity
*Decree given by Cyrus, King of Persia in the 1st year of his reign for the Israelites to return to Jerusalem to rebuild the Temple
*No other nations can build with Israel
1Now when the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin heard that the children of the captivity builded the temple unto the Lord God of Israel;
2Then they came to Zerubbabel, and to the chief of the fathers, and said unto them, LET US BUILD WITH YOU: for WE SEEK YOUR GOD, AS YE DO; and we do SACRIFICE UNTO HIM since the days of Esarhaddon king of Assur, which brought us up hither.
3But Zerubbabel, and Jeshua, and the rest of the chief of the fathers of Israel, said unto them, YE HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH US TO BUILD AN HOUSE UNTO OUR GOD; BUT WE OURSELVES TOGETHER WILL BUILD UNTO THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL, as king Cyrus the king of Persia hath commanded us
27And ye shall know that I AM IN THE MIDST OF ISRAEL, and that I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD AND NONE ELSE: and my people shall never be ashamed.
*ABSOLUTELY NO marriages with the other nations
1Now when these things were done, the princes came to me, saying, The people of Israel, and the priests, and the Levites, HAVE NOT SEPARATED THEMSELVES FROM THE PEOPLE OF THE LANDS, DOING ACCORDING TO THEIR ABOMINATIONS even of the Canaanites(Africans), the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites(Japanese), the Moabites(Chinese), the Egyptians(Africans), and the Amorites.
2For they have TAKEN OF THEIR DAUGHTERS FOR THEMSELVES, AND FOR THEIR SONS: SO THAT THE HOLY SEED HAVE MINGLED THEMSELVES WITH THE PEOPLE OF THOSE LANDS: yea, the hand of the princes and rulers hath been chief in this trespass.
10And Ezra the priest stood up, and said unto them, Ye have TRANSGRESSED, AND HAVE TAKEN STRANGE WIVES, TO INCREASE THE TRESPASS OF ISRAEL
11Now therefore make confession unto the Lord God of your fathers, and DO HIS PLEASURE: AND SEPARATE YOURSELVES from the people of the land, AND FROM THE STRANGE WIVES.
[Verbatim in the Apocrypha 1Esdras8:92-94Apocrypha]
*All Nations outside of Israel are NOTHING
54And after these, Adam also, whom thou madest lord of all thy creatures: of him come we all, AND THE PEOPLE ALSO WHOM THOU HAST CHOSEN.
55All this have I spoken before thee, O Lord, because THOU MADEST THE WORLD FOR OUR SAKES.
56As for THE OTHER PEOPLE, WHICH ALSO COME FROM ADAM, THOU HAST SAID THAT THEY ARE NOTHING, but BE LIKE UNTO SPITTLE: and hast likened THE ABUNDANCE OF THEM UNTO A DROP THAT FALLETH FROM A VESSEL.
*The so-called White Man(Esau/Edomites) will be ruling the earth in the last days, and this is Israel's LAST captivity
7Then answered I and said, What shall be the parting asunder of the times? or WHEN SHALL BE THE END OF THE FIRST, AND THE BEGINNING OF IT THAT FOLLOWETH?
8And he said unto me, From Abraham, unto Isaac, when Jacob and Esau were born of him, JACOB'S HAND HELD FIRST THE HEEL OF ESAU(Genesis25:26).
9FOR ESAU IS THE END OF THE WORLD, AND JACOB(Genesis32:28) IS THE BEGINNING OF IT THAT FOLLOWETH.
*"Hispanics/Native Americans" land in America FIRST!
40Those the TEN TRIBES, which were carried away prisoners out of their own land IN THE TIME OF OSEA THE KING(2Kings17:1-6), whom SALMANASAR THE KING OF ASSYRIA led away captive, and he carried them over the waters, and so came they into another land.
41But they took this counsel amon themselves, that they would LEAVE THE MULTITUDE OF THE HEATHEN, AND GO FORTH INTO A FURTHER COUNTRY, WHERE NEVER MANKIND DWELT
42That they might keep their statutes, which they never kept in their own land
43And they ENTERED INTO THE EUPHRATES BY THE NARROW PASSAGES OF THE RIVER
44For the most High then showed signs for them, and held still the flood, till they were passed over.
45For through that country there was a great way to go, NAMELY, OF A YEAR AND A HALF: AND THE SAME REGION IS CALLED ARSARETH
*The Coming Messiah, Crowns of LIFE to those who stood stiffly for the Lord
42I Esdras saw upon the mount Sion, A GREAT PEOPLE, WHOM I COULD NOT NUMBER(Hosea1:10,Revelation7:9) and they all praised the Lord with songs
43And in the midst of them A YOUNG MAN OF A HIGH STATURE, TALLER THAN ALL THE REST, AND UPON EVERY ONE OF THEIR HEADS HE SET CROWNS, and was more exalted; which I marveled at greatly
44So I asked the angel, and said, Sir, WHAT ARE THESE?
45He answered and said unto me, THESE BE THEY THAT HAVE PUT OFF THE MORTAL CLOTHING, AND PUT ON THE IMMORTAL, and have CONFESSED THE NAME OF GOD: NOW ARE THEY CROWNED AND RECEIVE PALMS(Revelation7:9)
46Then said I unto the angel, WHAT YOUNG PERSON IS IT THAT CROWNETH THEM, AND GIVETH THEM PALMS IN THEIR HANDS?
47So he answered and said unto me, IT IS THE SON OF GOD, WHOM THEY HAVE CONFESSED IN THE WORLD. Then began I greatly to commend THEM THAT STOOD SO STIFFLY FOR THE NAME OF THE LORD
