DOES THE GOD OF ISRAEL DEEM THE ACT OF CONVERSION
(FROM A GENTILE TO A “JEW”) AN ACCEPTABLE PRACTICE?
When the CREATOR GOD established the Heavens and the Earth and all things therein, HE specifically designated the territories HE wanted the sons of Noah to inherit and inhabit.
And when HE made an “Everlasting Covenant” with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel, HE gave them the land of Canaan for their inheritance. However, the Twelve Tribes of Jacob, called the Children of Israel, were scattered from their designated territory and cursed into Slavery and into the hands of the heathen (Leviticus 26th and Deuteronomy 28th Chapters and Psalm 106:38-42) to serve their enemies in foreign lands for disobedience to the LAWS of the CREATOR GOD of Israel, for forsaking HIM, and worse, for turning to false gods.
Unto this day, the masses of the Twelve Tribes of Jacob are yet scattered from the Land of Israel.
“I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men” (Deu. 32:26).
Of a truth, when GOD scattered HIS Covenant People for all their transgressions against HIM, HE no longer sent visions to HIS Prophets (Lam.2:9), and HE allowed Gentiles to take control of HIS Land: the Greeks, the Romans, the Turks, the British, and other European nations, including the Ashkenazim, Khazars, and a multitude of proselytes from the Greek and Roman Eras unto this day.
After GOD had scattered the Children of Israel, those who called themselves “Jews” took control of the Land of Israel and from that time, they determined who would be called and accepted as “Jews.” These rulers of GOD’s Land set the stage for Gentile Conversion and the “Law of Return” under what’s now known as “Judaism.” And under these circumstances anyone, regardless of his/her nationality or ethnic background, can be converted to a “Jew” and is required to practice what’s called “Judaism,” a religion designed by Rabbis – not by the LAWS of the GOD of Israel that HE gave to HIS Prophet Moses for the Israelites. To their chagrin, the Jewish elements of “Judaism” can in no way be compared to the Laws and Commandments the CREATOR GOD of Abraham wrote for Moses to teach to the Children of Israel. “Judaism” is a dogma of man and was formed and based on the results of debates by those who took on the identity of the Children of Israel after GOD cursed the Israelites from the Land.
Thus, after the scattering of the SEED of Jacob into “the four corners of the Earth,” came the birth of “Rabbinic/Talmudic Judaism” or rather “Oral Law,” which eagerly opposed and replaced GOD’s written Laws, Statutes, and Judgments. Ironically, one outstanding Law of GOD that these Rabbis of the Roman Era completely dismissed was the Commandment stating that Israelites can neither add to nor diminish from what GOD Commands of them (Deu. 12:32). This Law had no bearing on these Rabbis, and indeed without fear, they have changed and replaced a plethora of GOD’s LAWS for their self-serving interests and agendas.
And thus, their schema, led from one Jewish ideal to another, including their practice of Conversion that has no place in GOD’s Ways of Righteousness. No matter the submersion or training in conversion, no one can be converted into an Israelite. The GOD of Israel knows the People HE Chose and with whom HE made an Everlasting Covenant. One can serve the GOD of Israel to follow HIS Walk of Life, but no Gentile or “Stranger,” as non-Israelites are called, can become a Hebrew-Israelite, just as no European can become an African or just as no Japhethite can become a Shemite.
It was the Most High GOD, HIMSELF, that Commanded the Israelites not to practice mixed marriage among the Tribes. And if that isn’t enough evidence to reject the concept of “Conversion to Judaism,” then perhaps the fact that the GOD of Israel will cause the SEED of Jacob - NOT “Converts” - to return back to their inheritance will bring one to light (Exodus 6:7,8; Psalm 135:12;Jeremiah 30:10).
Consider the fact that even while in the Wilderness, the Israelites assembled and “declared their pedigrees after their families, by the house of their fathers.” Note also that when the Judahites returned from the 70-year-Babylonian captivity, a group professing to be of the SEED of Israel were deemed as polluted and put from the priesthood. And perhaps the greatest evidence that rejects the practice of “Jewish Conversion” is what’s written in GOD’s LAW and WORD to HIS Prophets: Prophets, Leaders, heads, captains, governors, kings, and Nazarites must all be of the SEED of the Children of Israel (Deuteronomy 1:13,17:15,18:18; Jeremiah 30:21,22; Amos 2:11).
Nevertheless, the GOD of Israel accepts all who seek to follow HIM, but according to HIS Ways of Righteousness – not man’s. The Land of Israel belongs to the GOD of Israel, and HE has already given it to the SEED of Jacob, albeit, the Stranger may live among the Israelites if they, too, will abide by GOD’s LAW (Exodus 12:49; Leviticus 24:22; Isaiah 56:6-8).
Converting any one thing to another is obvious confusion and deception to say the least. Any attempts to convert a “Gentile” to an Israelite are trespassing and the act to do so is unfounded in the Ways and WORD of the Most High GOD of Israel.
At the end of the day, the Most High GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will be Exalted and Magnified by the SEED of Jacob, and the world will seek to follow HIS same Ways of Righteousness that HE set forth in the Beginning of time even for Adam, Noah, and the Children of Israel.
“Why would GOD hand HIS Earth over to the heathens?” The ANSWERS to all these questions and many, many more can be found in “The Old Testament.”
