BIN: “But the Kohanim the Leviim the sons of Tzadok that kept the charge of My sanctuary when the children of Yisrael 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 GOD.” Ezekiel 44:15 (The Israel Bible™)
In a powerful blend of science and religion, a rabbi has turned to genetics to reinstate the priesthood for the Third Temple. This rabbi believes that science has proven that the priesthood is exactly as the Bible described: An eternal covenant that will reappear to herald in the Third Temple.
“Genetics connects modern Judaism to the Bible, confirming 3,000 years of Jewish tradition,” explained Rabbi Yaakov Kleiman to Breaking Israel News. “This is an amazing testament to God’s covenant and the Jewish People. Despite more than 2,000 years of exile we have maintained our religion, our customs, our Torah, and our genetic identity.” more …
Opinion: Over 300 years ago King Louis XIV of France asked Blaise Pascal, the great French philosopher, to give him proof of the supernatural. Pascal answered: “Why, the Jews, your Majesty ― the Jews.”
There is nothing on earth to compare Israel or the Jewish people with. So many civilizations have come and gone but there is one bloodline with three separate identities that has remained the same from time immemorial.
- The Jew from the line of Abraham Isaac and Jacob
- The Arab from the lines of Abraham Ishmael and Esau
The defining characteristic is that both Ishmael and Esau took their wives, and subsequent children, from the pagan tribes of the Canaanites in total disregard for Abraham’s instructions.
In a January 2000 post from the Jewish website Aish.com, an article by Dr. Karl Skorecki considered a hypothesis: “If the Cohanim are descendants of one man, they should have a common set of genetic markers — a common haplotype — that of their common ancestor.
That even though Cohanim can be significantly different in stature, skin coloration and hair and eye color, they can still be from the line of Cohanim, direct descendants of one man — Aaron, the brother of Moses.
Calculations based on the high rate of genetic similarity of today’s Cohanim resulted in the highest “paternity-certainty” rate ever recorded in population genetics studies — a scientific testimony to family faithfulness.
Consider the line of Esau:
This is the family tree of Esau, who is also called Edom, in Genesis 36:
Esau married women of Canaan: Adah, daughter of Elon the Hittite; Aholibamah the daughter of Anah and the granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite; and Basemath, daughter of Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth.
Adah bore Eliphaz;
Basemath bore Reuel;
Aholibamah had Jeush, Jaalam, and Korah.
Eliphaz, son of Esau’s wife Adah: the sons of Eliphaz: Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz.
[Eliphaz also had a concubine Timna, who had Amalek]
We learn from Scripture that the line of Ishmael settled in the Arabian desert, east of the promised land, in what is today Saudi Arabia.
Interestingly, Ishmael’s descendants are not mentioned after the prophesied war of Psalm 83:6.
Esau, however, is present right to the second coming of Christ: Isaiah 63:1-3.
In the same way that a common set of markers can now identify a descendant of Aaron, is it conceivable that continuing the family tree of Amalek, Abraham’s grandson, we would find the same markers in every virulent anti-Semite throughout history including the final man of sin (Exodus 17:16)?
Politically, the hidden spirit (Obadiah 1:6) of Esau (Antichrist) comes in peacefully, but once in power, his evil intentions become obvious, and removing him is impossible, short of war.
