Before I start into the post proper I'd like to say something about the word "dor." The Dorian invaders of Achaean Greece most likely came in from the forests of the north. And then we have the forest moon of Endor, from the movie "Return of the Jedi." Also we have the witch of Endor, who King Saul consulted: "And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor." (1 Samuel 28:7) Why did George Lucas call that moon in his movie "Endor"? Was he saying that witchcraft is a good thing? It's as harmless as those cute little Ewoks, maybe he was saying?
Another thing I'd like to address before jumping into the post proper is the millenium. I've said before that I believed that we are in the millenium now and that another millenium is in the future also. To me now it's looking more like we're in the millenium (not literally 1,000 years), and we're approaching its end. (Rev. 20 can still be seen as speaking of two millenia: one current and the other future, and the first resurrection is spiritual (now) and converts to the physical in the next millenium for those who are resurrected at the end of this current 1,000 years to everlasting life. Hope that makes sense.) Let's look first at Revelation 20:10 says: "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever." Apparently when the devil is thrown into the lake of fire, the beast and the false prophet are already there. This can look like it's saying that the latter two have been in the lake of fire for a "thousand years" before the Devil is cast in there also. Hmmm.
Next let's look at Daniel 7:10: "I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him." I've already established (in a previous post) that the Ancient of days is Jesus Christ, and the "one like the Son of man" who is brought before him for judgment is the Devil. That means that the beast (the one that is the Antichrist--from Revelation 13) has already been thrown--without being judged at all--into the lake of fire (Rev. 19). Isaiah 14: 9-10 says, "Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?" Satan/Lucifer will not be cast into the lake of fire immediately, without judgment (like the Antichrist, who is a clone). The former will be judged and paraded before all the unrepentant, wicked kings who have ever ruled on the earth. Then the Devil will be cast into the lake of fire, where the beast and the false prophet already are.
Furthermore in Revelation 6:9-11: "And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled." The saints spoken of in this passage are the ones who were slain (beheaded as well as thrown into the Arena) in the days of the Roman Empire. The "little season" appears to be the course of the the thousand years that we're in now. You could say that time in heaven is different than time on earth.
We read this in Revelation 20: "4And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years."
All right, if the righteous--through God's Christ--are the ones who are resurrected before the beginning of this future thousand years, and if the wicked are the ones resurrected at the end of said future millenium; then why is the book of life even opened at all for the 2nd resurrection?: "12And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works." (Rev. 20)
What some traditions of the world tell us is that time is cyclical. The earth has been going through cycles (or yugas as they're called in India)--each made up of four ages: the golden, the silver, the bronze and the iron. (As man's vibration descends from the spiritual towards the material, civilization overall declines to the point of total darkness before God destroys it and starts over, thus indicating that the new cycle we're entering into may eventually see the horrific rise of the serpent a "thousand years" from now that God will then crush: going on and on into infinity.) The Bible itself portrays a cycle, for it pretty much begins with the Garden in Eden (paradise), wherein was the Tree of Life; and it ends with that same Tree in Revelation.
Now for the post proper. Straightening out this confused matter of the Jews requires some detective work. From where do the Ashkenazi Jews come from? You can trace them back to Khazaria in the 8th century AD. This was before they were dispersed (into Eastern Europe and taking up the name "Ashkenazi") by the young Russian state in the 10th century AD. Therefore it was in the 700s AD that Edomite Jews from Babylon came among the Khazars to teach them Judaism. Before Babylon these Edomite Jews had lived in Jerusalem--until 70 AD when a Roman army under Prince Titus overran the city--thus fulfilling the second part of Daniel 9:27: "...and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate." God, by way of the Romans, made Jerusalem "desolate."
What I really want to examine more in this post is how the Edomites became "Jews" in the first place. We can begin with the Maccabean Revolt. In 166 BC Judas Maccabee successfully led a Jewish partisan army in driving the Seleucid army from Jerusalem. Once more Judah was an autonomous state--since its conquest by the Babylonians under Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BC.
In 112 BC John Hyrcanus, a Maccabean king, conquered Edom and forced the inhabitants to convert to Judaism (including circumcision). These Edomite or "Idumean" Jews became a part of Judahite society from that time on.
But even before that we have something peculiar being spoken of in the Old Testament. Genesis 15:19-21 says, "The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites." These were peoples whose lands were promised to Abraham. The Kenites (Cainites) are listed at the beginning. Apparently after the flood of Sumeria, the sons of Cain came in to mix with the inhabitants of Canaan (who had mixed with fallen angels to produce more Nephilim). And Cain was fathered by the serpent (Satan).
Later on in Genesis 36:2 we are told that "Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan; Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon the Hivite..." And Esau was the father of the Edomites, for verse 1 of Genesis 36 tells us: "Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom." Thus the seed of the serpent became part of the Edomites by way of the Canaanites.
