‘Jew’s Land’ Revisted

The Women’s March ground to a halt over issues I presented in this blog that made me enemies. As a true Prophet of God, this is the price you pay.

Seer Jon

They say they disagree with anti-Semitic and homophobic statements, but will not condemn them specifically. When asked about the controversies on media outlets, they frequently refuse to even say the words Jewish or LGBTQ. They post dog whistles about dual loyalties and that their critics are the same as Jesus’s. They explain eloquently that they choose to condemn bigotry (but not bigots), yet condemn Anti-Defamation League.

Tyler Hunt and Samuel Josefa De Mattos

Today my grandson, Tyler Hunt, turns seven years of age. Happy birthday grandson!In June of 2010 I was offered an acre of land in South Carolina by a descendant of King David, Samuel Josefa de Mattos Jr. I had asked Samuel for permission to walk on his land he purchased at Plantation Point after reading my blogs about the “Jew’s land” that belonged to his ancestors who were Sephardic Jews who founded Reform Judaism in Charleston, then declared this was the New Promised Land, with no return to Zion. To learn that Reform Jews believed Berlin was the New Jerusalem, brings an end of my long journey because my kindred lived on Berlin Avenue where a famous Jewish cemetery is found.

It appears I have been raised as the Nehushtan that I believe came from India and China, and was the brass serpent that Moses raised high as he came into the Valley of Death where poison snakes abound. However, with 650,000 folks following the Nehushtan that warded off snakes, it was the snakes being warned – get out of THE WAY!

The Nehushtan is the constellation, Draco, that every year around the Day of Atonement sends thousands of shooting stars to earth. These stars look like reptiles raining down from heaven. Imagine being in the desert back then with no city lights. These are the Seraphs the “serpents of fire” The comets that came right on top of you looked liked a many winged serpent because of the flames shooting out the side. This is my conclusion. The Nehushatan was found on the heights, and was central to the worship of the Levites. I was born October 8th. 1946 two minutes past sundown, when the might sky was filled with shooting stars from the eye of Draco.

The nameless angel that appear to Samson’s parents, may have been a Nehushtan- Seraph sent from the throne of God. A burning coal was put in the mouth of Nehushtan so it could be seen at night, like a shooting star. When it was carried, a trail of smoke followed behind.

When my daughter came into my life at sixteen I was a fatherless Sage studying the Torah over twelves hours a day. When Tyler was born, I came to see him and took him to the Suttmeister-Janke crypt in Colma. My kindred appear to be 48ers, and Turnvereins who may have believed what their Jewish counterparts believed, that Berlin was the New Jerusalem.

Samuel buys and sell old weaving looms. The Rosamond family were weavers. Consider the weaver’s needle on the Rosamond cote of arms, and the spindle on the Rougemont Templar cote of arms flanked by two camels. Samuel is kin to Moses Montefiore, whom Joaquin Miller built a monument to in the shape of a pyramid. Moses used his vast wealth to make Jewish colonies in Israel. I have restored the original cosmology of Samuel;s people, and perhaps my own. It is my gift to Samuel and his family, forever, and ever, for until Samuel’s legacy, all the gifts meant for me in this life, were intercepted. My aunt and uncle June and Vincent Rice, will forever be made immortal, for they are joined on google next to the DeMattos family, and, Samson, for I adopt this childless couple as my parents. They will never be forgotten, nor their generous gift to me and members of my family.

Being a poor man, this acre of land is my legacy to my grandson, who I called Sceaf. When he comes to walk upon it, may he raise a Nehushatan, there, at the end of Middleton Place overlooking Greenwood Lake.

I have awoken the kingdom of God and raised the Nehushtan on the high places!

It is done! Come out of your tombs and hear the angels sing once again!

The Promised Land

“For his first birthday I promised my Grandson, Tyler Hunt, a kingdom. American
Democracy has awoken from the demonic spell put upon it. Let the celebration
begin!”
On June 8, 2010, I got a call from a stranger, Samuel Josefa de Mattos, a
descendant of a famous Sephardic Jewish family. He said he had come across my
study on Rougeknights and said; “You appear to know more about my family then I
do.”

We talked about his ancestor, Francis Salvador who was killed by Indians. Samuel
said his kinfolk left the “Jews land” around the small town of Hodges due to the
hostile natives. The Rosamond family may have done the same, they moving to
Mississippi leaving their plantations behind. Did the de Mattos and the Rosmonds
know one another?

Samuel then informed me he had purchased sixty one acres near Plantation Point
that runs to the shore of Greenwood Lake. He had read about the “Jews land” the
Hodge family has once owned. He deliberately bought this land so it can be owned
by descendants of King David once again. I told Samuel about Samuel and James
Rosamond who fought under Francis Marion in the Revolutionary War. I asked for
permission to take my daughter and grandson to this land against owned by a
family whose genealogy is found in the Bible. Samuel replied;

“Jon, not only do you have my permission, but I am going to give you an acre of
this land!”

I felt faint. I could not believe what Samuel offered me, for it is the end of
my prophetic book, where I promise my grandson a kingdom, where I compare my
rosy story to the Sleeping Beauty Princess, named Rosamond. Here is the Return
of The King, in the Red Branch Knight prophecy to the Promised Land.
Here is what my great, great grandfather, James Rosamond says in his will;
To my three sons, Thomas, Benjamin, and Samuel, I leave the rest of my land; to
be divided equally amongst them and to be given to them as they come of age. I
allow my wife to have use of it while she lives, the tract of land that I now
live on. On her death, this land will be equally divided between Thomas,
Benjamin and Samuel.

That my acre will be next door to a descendant of King David whose kingdom the
Zionist Christians and Jews are trying to restore in Israel, is profound! In the
Peerage we read; Esther Montefiore is the daughter of Samuel Montefiore and
Grace de Mattos Mocatta.1 She married Judah Guedalla. This is the family of
Moses Montefiore whom Joaquin Miller built a pyramid monument to, suggesting he
was a moder day Moses! The new address of the New Promised Land is 339 Middleton
Road on the land known as Plantation Point. Was the Rosamond plantation located
here?

I blessed Samuel and his family and when we said goodbye he called me “Brother”.
I then -emailed my good friend Mark Gall, whose Jewish mother always had a
reserved seat for me at her table at the resthome, and she only asked for me to……

One week ago I awoke and heard my Angel. She told me I had found the Shekinah. I
wondered if she was saying I was very close to finding the Light of God. This
was not the case. I had arrived.
“You have found me.”
My heart beating, I went to my computer and picked up the thread of my study
where I had left off. I was looking at the “Jews Land” and the coat of arms of
Doctor Mendes de Costa whose family lived on St. Eustatius. Regrettably they
were heavily involved in the slave trade. I suspect they made the blue glass
beads that Ponce de Leon used to entice Native Americans into making bad deals,
as well as enslaving them. Noble Jews expelled from Granada accompanied de Leon
in his voyage. I believe the Lion in de Costa’s coat of arms represents the
kingdom of Leon. The fleur de leaves I suspect represents Burgundy as you will
later see.
“What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor.”
David da Costa owned seven white servants. He bought three of them who were
felons. They were Christians. My ancestor John `The Highwayman’ Rosamond was a
felon sent from England to America and purchased by an un-known person in
Delaware. That the Rosamond family later bought land owned by the da Costa
family suggests the term of the indentured servitude had exspired, and having
served alongside the Jewish hero, Francis Salvador, perhaps the Rosamond family
was being honored and rewarded. Were they given a good deal on this land?

Sam de Mattos Jr., Sales, Brazil and Latin America

08, sixth, 19h: Launching of the book Pope Beetles, Sam de Mattos. Nets Publishing company
This novel – almost autobiográfica – has as protagonist Bino Tedesco, a young that had to leave Brazil in years 70, running away from the military repression. The workmanship tells to the adventures and desventuras of Bino for the roads of Latin America until arriving at the United States and its experience in the country of “self-made men”. The personage goes, throughout crooked and poeirentas roads, accumulating experiences that if they establish to its soul, as beetles in the windscreen of a bus, “Pope-beetles”. Tearing borders – literal or imaginary – innumerable Bino goes accumulating “bugs”.
When leading the reader for the history of the personage, Sam de Mattos makes it with the slightness, presenting a clipping of what he was to live – in Brazil and the World – during years 70.
The chaining of the personage to the historical facts, cultural politicians and of that period is described with realism, evoking candies and bitter souvenirs to they had lived that it and serving of rich panorama for that not yet they had been born.
Samuel (Sam) of Mattos Jr was born in Victory, in the Espirito Santo. He lives has 40 years in U.S.A., 22 of them in the Carolina of the South, where he is Managing of Sales of the Atkins Machinery. Formed in Creative Writings and Journalism for California State University.

5 Afterward you will come to [a]the hill of God where the Philistine garrison is; and it shall be as soon as you have come there to the city, that you will meet a group of prophets coming down from the high place with harp, tambourine, flute, and a lyre before them, and they will be prophesying.

The narrative in Joshua argues that the territory was taken by the Levites right after Joshua’s conquest of Canaan, but this cannot be correct,[3] as it is contradicted not only by archaeological evidence, but also by narratives in the Book of Judges, Books of Samuel, and Books of Kings;[9][10] Kedesh, for example, appears to have actually remained as a shrine to deities other than Yahweh.[3] The conclusion of most biblical scholars is thus that the whole system of Levite cities, in the Torah and deuteronomic history, is an attempt to explain the fact that important early sanctuaries existed at these locations, and thus were places where members of the priesthood naturally came to reside in large numbers;[3] scholars believe that the priesthood was originally open to any tribe, but gradually became seen as a distinct tribe to themselves – the Levites.[3][11]

Role in Reform and Reconstructionist Judaism
Reform and Reconstructionist Judaism do not believe in the rebuilding of a central Temple or a restoration of Temple sacrifices or worship. They regard the Temple and sacrificial era as a period of a more primitive form of ritual which Judaism (in their view) has evolved out of and should not return to. They also believe a special role for Kohanim and Levites represents a caste system incompatible with modern principles of egalitarianism, and do not preserve these roles. Furthermore, there is a Reform view that the shul or synagogue is a modern Temple; hence, “Temple” appears in numerous congregation names in Reform Judaism. Indeed, the re-designation of the synagogue as “temple” was one of the hallmarks of early Reform in 19th century Germany, when Berlin was declared the new Jerusalem, and Reform Jewry sought to demonstrate their staunch German nationalism. The Anti-Zionism that characterized Reform Judaism throughout much of its history subsided somewhat with the Holocaust in Europe and the later successes of the modern state of Israel. The belief in the return of the Jews to the Temple in Jerusalem is not part of mainstream Reform Judaism.

Goel (go’el) is a Hebrew term which comes from the word gal’al (“to redeem”), hence meaning “redeemer”, which in the Bible and the rabbinical tradition denotes a person who as the nearest relative of another is charged with the duty of restoring the rights of another and avenging his wrongs. In the Authorized King James Bible, it is rendered “kinsman”, “redeemer”, and “avenger”.
In the book of Isaiah God is called the redeemer of Israel, as he redeems his people from captivity; the context shows that the redemption also involves moving on to something greater. In Christianity, the title goel is applied to Christ, who redeems us from all evil by the payment of a ransom.

[edit] Duties of the goel
The obligations of the goel include the duty to redeem the relative from slavery, if the latter had been obliged to sell himself into serfdom (Leviticus 25: 48-49); to repurchase the property of a relative who had had to sell it because of poverty; to avenge the blood of his relative; to marry his brother’s widow in order to have a son for his brother, in case the brother had not got any son to pass his name forth (Deuteronomy 25:5-6); and to receive the restitution if the injured relative had died (Numbers 5:8).
Numbers 35:9-30 regulates the duties of the goel. The congregation has to judge the case before it puts a murderer in the hands of a goel. More than one witness is needed for conviction. In case of accidental manslaughter, the slayer can save his life by fleeing to a “city of refuge” and staying there for the term of the high priest (who is appointed for his lifetime). Ransom is not accepted for murder. Revenge cannot be taken on the offender’s children or parents (Deuteronomy 24:16). Leviticus 25:48-49 gives the order in which the nearest relative is considered the goel in the case of redeeming a slave: brother, uncle, male cousin and then other relatives. The same order was probably observed in the other cases, except in marrying a sister-in-law.
Jewish tradition has also ascribed to the blood avenger the role performed in modern times by a prosecuting attorney, who thus pleads on behalf of the victim the case against the criminal. Thus, he is responsible for bringing the offender to court, finding evidence against him, presenting the case to the court, and collecting damages from the offender. It is also his task to argue against any attempts to pardon the sinner.[1]

A seraph (pl. seraphim ( /ˈsɛr.ə.fɪm/[1]); Hebrew: שְׂרָפִים śərāfîm, singular שָׂרָף śārāf; Latin: seraphi[m], singular seraph[us]; Greek: σεραφείμ) is a type of celestial or heavenly being in the Abrahamic religions.
Literally “burning ones”, the word seraph is normally a synonym for serpents when used in the Hebrew Bible. A seminal passage in the Book of Isaiah (6.1-8) used the term to describe fiery six-winged beings that fly around God’s throne singing “holy, holy, holy”. This throne scene, with its triple invocation of holiness (a formula that came to be known as the trisagion), profoundly influenced subsequent theology, literature and art. Its influence is frequently seen in works depicting angels, heaven and apotheosis. Seraphs are mentioned as celestial beings in an influential Hellenistic work, the Book of Enoch, and the Book of Revelation. Tradition places seraphs in the fifth rank of ten in the Jewish angelic hierarchy and the highest rank in the Christian angelic hierarchy.

[edit] Origins and development
The word seraphim, literally “burning ones”, transliterates a Hebrew plural noun; translation yields seraphs. The singular, “seraph”, is more properly rendered sarap. The word sarap/seraphim appears three times in the Torah (Numbers 21:6-8, Deuteronomy 8:15) and four times in the Book of Isaiah (6:2-6, 14:29, 30:6). In Numbers and Deuteronomy the “seraphim” are serpents – the association of serpents as “burning ones” is possibly due to the burning sensation of the poison.[2] Isaiah also uses the word in close association with words to describe snakes (nahash, the generic word for snakes, in 14:29, and efeh, viper, in 30:6).
The Isaiah vision of seraphs in an idealised Jerusalem First Temple represents the sole instance in the Hebrew Bible of this word being used to describe celestial beings.[3] “… I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and His train filled the Hekhal (sanctuary). Above him stood the Seraphim; each had six wings; with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.” (Isaiah 6:1–3) The seraphim cry continually to each other, “Holy, holy, holy, is YHWH of hosts: the whole earth is full of His glory.” (verses 2-3) One seraph then carries out an act of purification for the prophet by touching his lips with a live coal from the altar (verses 6-7). The text uses the word “seraphim” but adds no adjectives or modifiers emphasising snakes (“nahash,” etc.). At the same time the description gives the creatures both human and avian attributes. A strong association with fire, though, is maintained.[4]
Seraphs appear in the 2nd century B.C. Book of Enoch[5] where they are designated as drakones (δράκονες “serpents”), and are mentioned, in conjunction with cherubs as the heavenly creatures standing nearest to the throne of God. In the late 1st century A.D. Book of Revelation (iv. 4-8) they are described as being forever in God’s presence and praising him: “Day and night with out ceasing they sing: ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come.’” They appear also in the Christian Gnostic text On the Origin of the World, described as “dragon-shaped angels”.[6]
[edit] In Judaism
The 12th century scholar Maimonides placed the seraphs in the fifth of ten ranks of angels in his exposition of the Jewish angelic hierarchy. They are part of the angelarchy of modern Orthodox Judaism. Isaiah’s vision is repeated several times in daily Jewish services, including at Kedushah prayer as part of the repetition of the Amidah, and in several other prayers as well. Conservative Judaism retains the traditional doctrines regarding angels and includes references to them in the liturgy, although a literal belief in angels is by no means universal among adherents. Adherents of Reform Judaism and Reconstructionist Judaism generally take images of angels as symbolic. Some adherents view them as part of the Merkabah.
[edit] In Christianity

Seraphs surround the divine throne in this illustration from the Petites Heures de Jean de Berry, a 14th-century illuminated manuscript, commissioned by John, Duke of Berry.
Medieval Christian theology places seraphs in the highest choir of the angelic hierarchy. They are the caretakers of God’s throne, continuously singing “holy, holy, holy”. Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite in his Celestial Hierarchy (vii), drew upon the Book of Isaiah in fixing the fiery nature of seraphim in the medieval imagination. Seraphs in his view helped the Deity maintain perfect order and are not limited to chanting the trisagion. Taking his cue as well from writings in the Rabbinic tradition, the author gave an etymology for the Seraphim as “those who kindle or make hot”:
“The name seraphim clearly indicates their ceaseless and eternal revolution about Divine Principles, their heat and keenness, the exuberance of their intense, perpetual, tireless activity, and their elevative and energetic assimilation of those below, kindling them and firing them to their own heat, and wholly purifying them by a burning and all-consuming flame; and by the unhidden, unquenchable, changeless, radiant and enlightening power, dispelling and destroying the shadows of darkness”[7]

The Israelites set out from Mount Hor, where Aaron was buried, to go to the Red Sea. However they had to detour around the land of Edom (Numbers 20:21, 25). Frustrated and impatient, they complained against Yahweh and Moses (Num. 21:4-5). and God sent “fiery serpents” among them. For the sake of repentant ones, Moses was instructed by God to build a “serpent of bronze” that was used to heal those who looked upon it (Numbers 21:4-9).
In source criticism by Martin Noth, the “bronze serpent” passage in Numbers 21:4-9, proceeds smoothly and is free of doublets, thus it does not appear to divide into different ‘sources’ even with the unusual juxtaposition of ‘God’ in v.5. The predominating use of the name Yahweh supposes that its appearance is original. In terms of the documentary hypothesis, the narrative can be allocated to the E source.[7]
[edit] Destruction
In 2 Kings 18:4, a bronze serpent was set up in the Jerusalem Temple sanctuary.[7] The Masoretic text says that “he [Hezekiah] called it Nehushtan”. According to Young’s Literal Translation, Nehushtan means “piece of brass” (2 Kings 18:4). Karen Randolph Joines makes the distinction that it was Hezekiah who discriminatingly called the image Nehushtan, rather than it being some common term used by the Israelites.[8] When Hezekiah had become King, he tore down the Nehushtan. It has been suggested that Hezekiah’s destruction of the Nehushtan was a result of the balance of power moving towards Assyria, which permitted him to remain on the throne of Judah as a puppet ruler. Hezekiah demonstrated his loyalty to the new regime by the destruction of an important symbol with Egyptian associations.[9]

The Brazen Serpent, by Benjamin West; among the overthrown, an unmistakable reference to the Laocoön
[edit] Significance in Christianity
As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life – (John 3:14-15)
The Serpent of bronze in Numbers 21 is a well known image for Christians because of its use by Jesus in the Gospel of John. Jesus discussed his destiny with a Jewish teacher named Nicodemus[10] by referencing a passage in Chukat of the Torah. Jesus gave a direct comparison between the raising up of the Son of Man and the act of the Mosaic serpent being raised up. Charles Spurgeon asserted that in this passage, Jesus was referring to his forthcoming crucifixion, and demonstrating the significance of the cross as spiritual healing from the curse of sin.[11]

Numbers 21:4-9; John 3:13-16 (NET)
21:4 Then they traveled from Mount Hor by the road to the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom, but the people became impatient along the way. 21:5 And the people spoke against God and against Moses, “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness, for there is no bread or water, and we detest this worthless food.”
21:6 So the Lord sent poisonous snakes among the people, and they bit the people; many people of Israel died. 21:7 Then the people came to Moses and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you. Pray to the Lord that he would take away the snakes from us.” So Moses prayed for the people.
21:8 The Lord said to Moses, “Make a poisonous snake and set it on a pole. When anyone who is bitten looks at it, he will live.” 21:9 So Moses made a bronze snake and put it on a pole, so that if a snake had bitten someone, when he looked at the bronze snake he lived.

Fiery serpent m.n. (Hebrew: ‘שָׂרָף, Modern saraph Tiberian sä·räf’ ; “fiery”, “fiery serpent”, “seraph”, “seraphim”) occurs in the Torah, or Pentateuch, to describe a species of vicious snakes whose poison burns upon contact. According to Wilhelm Gesenius, saraph corresponds to the Sanskrit sarpa, serpent; sarpin, reptile (from the root srip, serpere).[10] These “burning serpents”(YLT) infested the great and terrible place of the desert wilderness (Num.21:4-9; Deut.8:15). The Hebrew word for “poisonous” literally means “fiery”, “flaming” or “burning”, as the burning sensation of a snake bite on human skin, a metaphor for the fiery anger of God (Numbers 11:1).[11]
The Book of Isaiah expounds on the description of these fiery serpents as “flying saraphs”(YLT), or flying dragons,[10] in the land of trouble and anguish (Isaiah 30:6). Isaiah indicates that these saraphs are comparable to vipers,(YLT) worse than ordinary serpents (Isaiah 14:29).[12] The prophet Isaiah also sees a vision of seraphim, in the Temple itself: but these are divine agents, with wings and human faces, and are probably not to be interpreted as serpent-like so much as flame-like.[4]
[edit] Serpent of bronze
Further information: Nehushtan
In the Book of Numbers, while Moses was in the wilderness, he mounted a serpent of bronze on a pole that functioned as a cure against the bite of the “seraphim”, the “burning ones” (Numbers 21:4-9). The phrase in Num.21:9, “a serpent of bronze,” is a wordplay as “serpent” (nehash) and “bronze” (nehoshet) are closely related in Hebrew, nehash nehoshet.[2]

Modern-critical scholars operating under the framework of the documentary hypothesis commonly ascribe the Binding’s narrative to the biblical source E, on the grounds that it generally uses God (אלוהים) for the deity, and also parallels characteristic E compositions. On that view, the second angelic appearance to Abraham (v. 14–18), praising his obedience and blessing his offspring, is in fact a later interpolation to E’s original account (v.1-13, 19). This is supported by the style and composition of these verses, as well as by the use of YHWH (יהוה) for the deity.[10] More recent studies question this analysis. It is argued that Abraham’s obedience to God’s command in fact necessitates praise and blessing, which he only receives in the second angelic speech.[11] That speech, therefore, could not have been simply interpolated into E’s original account. This has suggested to many that the author responsible for the interpolation of the second angelic appearance has left his mark also on the original account (v. 1-13-19).[10] More recently it has been suggested that these traces are in fact the first angelic appearance (v. 11–12), in which the Angel of YHWH stops Abraham before he kills Isaac.[12] The style and composition of these verses resemble that of the second angelic speech, and YHWH is used for the deity rather than God. On that reading, in the original E version of the Binding Abraham disobeys God’s command, sacrificing the ram “instead of his son” (v.13) on his own responsibility and without being stopped by an angel: “And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son; but Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked and beheld, behind him was a ram, caught in a thicket by his horns; and Abraham went, and took the ram, and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son” (v. 10,13). By interpolating the first appearance of the angel, a later redactor shifted responsibility for halting the test from Abraham to the angel (v. 11–12); due to that shift of responsibility, the second angelic appearance, in which Abraham is rewarded for his obedience (v. 14–18), became necessary. This analysis of the story sheds light on the connection between the Binding and the story of Sodom (Genesis 18), in which Abraham protests against God’s unethical plan to destroy the city, without distinguishing between the righteous and the wicked: “Far be it from you to do such a thing.. Shall not the judge of all the earth do what is just?” Abraham’s ethical rebellion against God in Sodom culminates in his disobedience to God, refusing to sacrifice Isaac.[13]

In the book of Chronicles it is reported that the location of Araunah’s threshing floor is “in mount Moriah” and that the Temple of Solomon was built over Araunah’s threshing floor.[3] This has led to the classical rabbinical supposition that this is at the peak of Moriah.
Some interpretations of a biblical passage concerning Melchizedek would indicate Jerusalem was already a city with a priest at the time of Abraham, and thus is unlikely to have been founded after this, at the site of a sacrifice made by Abraham in the wilderness.[4] However the view that Salem refers to Jerusalem (then Jebus) and not peace (shalome, shelomo) is of heavy debate between many sects of Jews and Christians.Moria is now the birth place for the Zion Christian Church ( ZCC )

Berlin and Jerusalem have an interesting relationship. Ever since the 19th Century, when there was widespread sentiment that “Berlin is the New Jerusalem”, the cities been, in a sense, antipodal. We all know about the prescient words of the Meshekh Chokhma, and we know about the fortunes of the two cities since then.
I was reminded of their antipodality this week. Both Jerusalem and Berlin were divided cities for parts of the 20th century. Jerusalem between 1948 and 1967 and Berlin between 1961 and 1989 (in truth, it was divided for a longer period than that, but without a wall).
Yes, as the world celebrates the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall, it clamors for Jerusalem to be redivided. In fact, this partition of Jerusalem is championed by the same folks who wrote all those articles comparing the Separation Fence to the Berlin Wall.
Do an experiment: gauge the reaction of people to the statement “Berlin will never again be divided” with the statement “Jerusalem will never again be divided”.
Some might argue that Jerusalem is already divided de facto. That may be true, and I am certainly not arguing that the idea of partitioning Jerusalem should not be carefully considered. I AM, however, saying that there’s not a snowball’s chance in hell that Gilo will end up on the Palestinian side of the partition (look at a map of Jerusalem today and a map of Jerusalem in 1967; there’s no way that we’re going back there). And I AM saying that a partition of Jerusalem, in any form, would be tragic.

om 1886 to his death in 1913, Joaquin Miller resided on a hill in Oakland, in a home he called “The Hights” [sic]. He planted the surrounding trees and he personally built, on the eminence to the north, his own funeral pyre (not used) and monuments dedicated to Moses, explorer General John C. Frémont, and the poets Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. The Japanese poet Yone Noguchi began his literary career while living in the cabin adjoining Millers’ during the latter half of the 1890s.

Then the Tabernacle was taken down, and the Gershonite and Merarite divisions of the Levites were next in the line of march, carrying the Tabernacle with them.

About the Painting: Very good condition. Laid down on board. Linen mat is fraying around the edges, but could be used with a new frame.

About the Artist: Following his own muse, and avoiding the influence of the twentieth century avant-garde, Teixeira remains among the most accomplished of draftsmen. Raised in Amsterdam, his early work, including views of Amsterdam, portraits of family members and drawings of animals from the Amsterdam Zoo, reflect his sensitivity.

The artist used a great variety of drawing materials: pencil, pen and ink, pastel, even watercolor. His favored material however, was the black crayon. In this he was influenced by the Hague School, a nineteenth century group of Dutch Realists. With them, Teixeira de Mattos shared a fascination for nature. But in his treatment of light and shadow, he remained faithful to the seventeenth century Dutch masters of painting.

In 1938, Teixeira moved to Paris. The city with its busy streets became important subject matter. When war broke out, he moved to the French countryside. With a deliberate disregard for the momentous events everywhere about him, he drew animals, farms and flowers.

From 1953 onwards he travelled each year to Spain. There he enjoyed the light and climate, drawing cityscapes of favored places: Madrid, Burgos and San Sebastian. He continued his work in Spain and France until his death in 1971.

Several years ago I was offered land in South Carolina that was owned by the Rosamond family, and the De Mattos Mendes Da Costa family. Issac da Costa was a co-founder, if not the founder of Scottish Rite Freemasony. His kin, Josef de Mattos offered me an acre of land after he purchased sixty acres on Plantation Point – after he read my blog about the “Jews Land” in South Carolina where the Rosamond and Witherspoon family have lived for generations. The Hesketh Revelstoke union with the Witherspoons is profound.
There is a Withersppon Clan, and the Sinclair Clan speak of Issac da Costa in the same breath with the Stuart Kings of Scotland which I have shown are kin to the Witherspoons throught the Preston family. I was Dottie Witherspoons Guardian Angel, and if she had not left me for the Jesus Freaks, we may have gotten married and had children. As fate would have my sister, Christine Rosamond Benton, married into this Royal Stewart Linage.
I wrote the following on April 20, 2008
Van Gough and the Promised Land
http://rougeknights.blogspot.com/
(Images: ‘By the River of Babylon’ Gloug. ‘The Expulsion of the Jews
from Spain’ painted in 1889 by Emilio Sala Frances, Museo de Bellas
Artes de Granada. A representative of the Jews pleads for the
reversal of the decree of expulsion of 1492. The figure in the
foreground is either Don Isaac Abravanel or Don Abraham Senior. The
figure gesturing behind the table must be Torquemada; presumably this
is the point at which Torquemada said that accepting Jewish gold
would be like Judas accepting the 30 pieces of silver.)
This morning I discovered that Vincent Van Gough took algebra lessons
from Teixeira de Mattos, the cousin of Doctor Mendes a Costa, who
also tutored Van Gough. Before this revelation, I discovered that
Benjamin Judah, the Jewish Secretary of State for the Confederacy,
descends form the Sephardic Jews who owned slaves in the West Indies.
His parents were, Philip Benjamin, and Rebecca de Mendes. Benjamin
owned 147 slaves. Is it possible that Rebecca de Mendes is a close
kin of Rebecca Mendes da Costa who was a party of the land deal made
with Joseph Salvador. Of course she is!
“On Nov. 27, 1755, General Hamilton sold to Joseph Salvador 100,000
acres of land, situated near Fort Ninety-six, for £2,000. Twenty
years later Joseph Salvador sold to thirteen London Sephardic Jews
60,000 acres of land for £3,000, and transferred 20,000 acres of the
remainder to Rebecca Mendes da Costa, in settlement of a claim which
she had upon him. This land was known as the “Jews’ lands.” Prior to
this, Salvador’s nephew Francis had arrived at Charleston (Dec.,
1773), and purchased a great deal of landed property in the same
neighborhood, some of it from his uncle and father-in-law. A Jew from
London, Moses Lindo, was one of the chief instruments in increasing
the indigo manufacture of the state.”
The Passover is the celebration of the Jews coming home to the
Promised Land. Did the Sephardic Jews believe they had come to the
New Promised Land when they came to America with Ponce De Leon?
Surely they abandoned the idea of returning to Zion, because they
founded Reform Judaism. Did these Jews in exile believe the land they
purchased was just as blessed as the land of Zion? In regards to
Israel, the Talmud says Zion is blessed, and merely walking on it can
gain you a place in the Afterlife. Did you know the Jews believed in
a Afterlife?
“The Talmud indicates that the land itself is so holy that merely
walking in it can gain you a place in the World to Come. Prayers for
a return to Israel and Jerusalem are included in daily prayers as
well as many holiday observances and special events.”
The correspondence between the Van Gough brothers are profound
documents, full of Brotherly Love. Benjamin Judah used his big brain
to pit brother against brother in a brutal war that killed 620,000. I
will put forth a case suggesting the Dutch, the French, and the
Sephardic Jews instigated the Revolutionary War in order to keep
Britain out of their Slave Trade in the West India and America. The
Puritans had already fled England to Holland, and thus they had a
more religious motive?

1 Response to ‘Jew’s Land’ Revisted

  1. Reblogged this on Rosamond Press and commented:

    On this day I calim the land that was promised me where I will establish the headquarters for ‘The Judges of the Fig Tree’. God warned the Jews about wanting a king to rule over them. He had founded the Order of Nazarite Judges to guide the people in many legal and religious matters. They were also the genrals of God’s army.
    ““For his first birthday I promised my Grandson, Tyler Hunt, a kingdom. American
    Democracy has awoken from the demonic spell put upon it. Let the celebration
    begin!”
    On June 8, 2010, I got a call from a stranger, Samuel Josefa de Mattos, a
    descendant of a famous Sephardic Jewish family. He said he had come across my
    study on Rougeknights and said; “You appear to know more about my family then I
    do.”
    We talked about his ancestor, Francis Salvador who was killed by Indians. Samuel
    said his kinfolk left the “Jews land” around the small town of Hodges due to the
    hostile natives. The Rosamond family may have done the same, they moving to
    Mississippi leaving their plantations behind. Did the de Mattos and the Rosmonds
    know one another?
