Interracial Relationships - Does YAH Hate It???
(New-more below) I took this page down because we received a study that was contrary to our understanding in this matter. After hearing the "whole matter" of their understanding, we believe it is a study based on racism. Comments made within their study, made it real clear that they just want to preserve their race, and they believe (it seems) Israel is white only.
They also claim that those whom think it is okay to racially mix it up (as they say), came into this walk with that world view. Just for the record, before I came into this walk, I did NOT believe it was okay to racially mix it up.
We've encountered brethren that believe we should not be mixing 'seed' (different colored people), and they use Deut. 22:9 to support this belief. But that is NOT what the scripture says. It's talking about the 'seed' that we plant in the ground.
We need to take a look at scriptures to see what YAH really thinks about this 'human seed' mixing.
Let's start with Yoseph. We all know Yoseph was an Israelite, right? BUT, who did he marry? Hmmm?
Gen 41:50-52 And to Yoseph were born two sons before the years of scarcity of food came, whom Asenath (Egyptian woman), the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On, bore to him.
You want to talk about some seed mixing. You can pretty much bank on Yoseph's wife NOT being a believer in YAH. But did YAH spank Yoseph for marrying outside his 'so-called' race? NO!
(New) What about when Israel conquered another nation?
Deu 21:10 “When you go out to fight against your enemies, and יהוה your Elohim shall give them into your hand, and you shall take them captive,
Deu 21:11 and shall see among the captives a woman fair of form, and shall delight in her and take her for your wife,
Deu 21:12 then you shall bring her home to your house, and she shall shave her head and trim her nails,
Deu 21:13 and put aside the mantle of her captivity, and shall dwell in your house, and mourn her father and her mother a month of days. And after that you shall go in to her and be her husband, and she shall be your wife.
It looks like YAH was okay to take a woman of another nation to be a wife! Wouldn't that be intermarrying??
Let us take a look at what happened to Miryam when her and Aharon got up in arms about Mosheh marrying an Ethiopian woman. Now you know she was definitely a different color than Mosheh.
Num 12:1 Now Miryam and Aharon spoke against Mosheh because of the Kushite (Ethiopian) woman whom he had taken, for he had taken a Kushite woman.
Num 12:9 And the displeasure of Yahueh burned against them, and He left.
Num 12:10 And the cloud turned away from above the Tent, and look: Miryam was leprous, as white as snow! And Aharon turned toward Miryam, and look: a leper!
A sister in the Faith put it this way...
Very well said, sister! HalleluYAH!
(New) Let us take a look at the book of Ruth.
Rth 1:4 And they took wives of the women of Mo’ab, the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth. And they dwelt there about ten years.
Rth 1:14 And they lifted up their voices and wept again. And Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth clung to her.
Rth 1:15 And she said, “Look, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her mighty ones. Go back, follow your sister-in-law.”
Rth 1:16 But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you, or to go back from following after you. For wherever you go, I go; and wherever you stop over, I stop over. Your people is my people, and your Elohim is my Elohim.
Now Ruth marries another Israelite (an Ephraimite to be exact) and what happens next...
Rth 4:13 And Boʽaz took Ruth and she became his wife. And he went in to her, and יהוה granted her conception, and she bore a son.
Now this son, whom is half Mo'abite, half Israelite, is the grandfather of....
Rth 4:17 And the women, her neighbours, gave him a name, saying, “There is a son born to Naʽomi.” And they called his name Obed. He was the father of Yishai, the father of Dawid.
Uh-oh, you mean Dawid is not a pure bred?
