The Gathering of the Children of Israel
According to the Book of Remembrance, the children of Jacob, currently known in the lands to which they were scattered, by the bywords Negros, Coloured, Darkies, Niggers, Coons, Sambos etc. (see Deuteronomy 28:37) would be taken into captivity and afflicted for 400 years because of their disobediance. This prophesy was fulfilled beginning in the summer of 1619 with the inception of the Transatlantic Slave trade.
It becomes clear when reading the Book of Remembrance that 400 years was not a fixed term, rather it was the length of time, from the perspective of the Most High, that it will take for his servants to remember who they are and turn back to him, so it is my belief that we cannot just observe the Torah and passively wait for the Most High, but rather we must actively turn back to him and cry out to him as a people. It is written:
2 Chronicles 7:14We are a special people and there is power in our voices, our women have the sweetest and most harmonious singing voices and our men have a commanding bass resonance that exudes natural authority. (note how the people of other nations regard this voice as 'menacing')
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
It is no coincidence that it is our voices dominate the music industry nor is it an accident that our music has been switched away from praising the Most High to a perverted parody that promotes materialism and carnal pleasures, focusing our attention on the acquisition of the meaningless toys and trinkets of this satanic society and sexual gratification.
The Book of Remembrance relates, time after time, how the Israelites would cry aloud to the Most High and that he would hear them and remember the covenant he has with our fathers, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and David and deliver them from their predicament:
Exodus 2:23 - 25
"And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto The Most High by reason of the bondage. And The Most High heard their groaning, and The Most High remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. And The Most High looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect unto them."
To that end, this project seeks to awaken as many unaware Israelites as possible to their true identity and teach them a prayer/song that will be written especially with which to cry out and coordinate the remnant of the children of Jacob all across the earth to sing out and pray together at the same moment, 400 years after the beginning of our captivity.
The milestones for this project will be to:
- Determine the date and time of the event.
- Commission the writing of the song.
- Create the Event webpages and promotional materials.
- Creation of Educational Videos, Booklets and talks.
Milestone 1 - Determine the date of the Event
From my preliminary research, I have thus far determined that the first prisoners of war who arrived in Jamestown were captured in Angola, West Central Africa and were originally aboard the Portuguese slave ship "São João Bautista" bound for Mexico, but were then stolen by the English ship "White Lion" and arrived in Virginia in late August 1619.
So a preliminary date of Saturday 24th August 2019 is proposed but further discussion is required on whether this event should be held on a Sabbath day.
Update: Further research has revealed a more precise date of August 21st 1619 so the finalised date of the Cry to the Most High will be on Wednesday, 21st August 2019.
Milestone 2 - Create the song
Obviously the prayer/song must be just the right song with just the right words, I have identified several characteristics of the song that I am envisioning:
- Lyrics must be fairly simple and easy to remember.
- Lyrics must be able to be read as a prayer.
- The song must be powerful, emotive, uplifting and joyful. (See "God's Trying to tell you Something", from The Color Purple)
- It must be a song that you can't sing loud enough. (Listen to the crescendo in "Morning", by Al Jarreau)
- It must be a song that makes you want to cry with joy as you sing it.
Here are a few references that may serve to illustrate the type of song I have in mind.
For the songwriters among us, the song should, for the most part, be able to be spoken as a prayer and I envisage the song made up of sections:
- Acknowledging our ancestors and our own transgressions
- How we have suffered in our punishment The cry to the Most High as the Chorus
- Were remembering who we are; Bridge to:
- Father, come and get us
- Chorus (or cut down version of Chrous) repeated until fade
Father we cry out to you
because now we understand
We thought this life was normal
Now we see your punishing hand
Our fathers ignored you
Our mothers neglected you
The promise was broken
We have forgotten you
YAH we cry out to you
we see the error of our ways
We love you and need you, we turn back to you
Father hear our cry
Your book is unsealed
our memories return
we see that we've been lead by devils
joined their hatred of you and your creation
We are ready now
To come back to you
And take our rightful place
Praising and serving you
Our Punishment is over
We've learned our lesson
Free us from the wicked
YAH Take us home
Again, these are not lyrics, just an outline, I am not a songwriter and leave that task in far more capable hands
It is hoped that the project can encourage songwriters among us to write a range of songs so that the very best that meets the above criteria can be selected.
Milestone 3 - Create Event website and promotions
A suitable domain will be purchased and a website developed to coordinate the event, web modules will be designed so that key features such as an event countdown can be embedded into any third party website.
An event page will also be created on the AllegedlyDave site to serve as a template for other third party sites. Each page will feature the project description, brief Instructions for the day of the event, an embedded youtube video to the selected song, a countdown timer to the event which will initiate the synchronised event video on expiry, and links to more detailed information
Milestone 4 - Create Educational Materials
Promotional t-shirts and set-apart clothing will be designed, as well as videos, business cards and informational booklets to support and teach the Hebrew identity. A series of talks will be scheduled and assistance given to anyone else who would like to speak on this topic.
