BIBLE MESSAGE ON INTERRACIAL MARRIAGE BIBLE STORY
Greetings again to you and welcome
back! It's time to look in again on Moses and the children of Israel as
they get ready to enter the Promised Land.
It's time again for a little Daily
Bread Crumb! Have you ever heard of Gilead? Gilead is the name of a
mountainous region east of the Jordan between the Sea of Chinnereth
(Galilee) and the Salt (Dead) Sea. Well, Gilead was also the name of the
great grandson of Joseph from the tribe of Manasseh. The half tribe of
Manasseh that took their inheritance on the east side of the Jordan,
coincidently, inherited part of Gilead, so to clear up any confusion, there
was first a region called Gilead, and then Machir, the son of Manasseh had a
son named Gilead. It may seem silly, but Gilead inherited part of Gilead!
Watch for the name Gilead in future stories as well.
It seems the chief fathers of the
families of the children of Gilead were concerned about a problem arising,
so they presented it to Moses. They said, The Lord commanded that the land
be given for an inheritance by lot to the children of Israel and to include
the daughters of our brother Zelophehad. If they marry someone from
another tribe, then their inheritance will be taken from us and given to the
tribe they marry into, and when the jubilee is here, their inheritance will
be taken from our father's inheritance

STORY EXPLANATION AND INTERRACIAL MARRIAGE BIBLE STORY SUMMARY
Moses told them, The tribe of the sons
of Joseph speak the truth. This is what the Lord commands. Let the
daughters of Zelophehad marry who they think best, but they may only marry
into the tribe of their father so the inheritance isn't transferred from
tribe to tribe. In fact, all the children of Israel will keep himself to
the inheritance of the tribe of his fathers. Every woman that gets an
inheritance in any tribe will be wife only to someone of the family of her
father so everyone can enjoy the inheritance of their fathers.
This may be where the disapproval of
interracial marriage comes from. Back in those times, not only was God's
commandment for Hebrews to marry Hebrews, but oft times they had to marry
within the same tribe. But have the LAWS changed and/or are Christian
under the same custom or law?
To find out, check out this study:
The daughters of Zelophehad, did
indeed marry within their own tribe and their inheritance remained in the
tribe of the family of their father.
This brings up another point. In case
you didn't get a chance to study through some of the chapters of Leviticus,
it's important to remember one major thing that God commanded in
25:23: The land shall not be sold
for ever: for
the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.
This is one of those things that we discussed
earlier that doesn't change with the New Testament. I have two questions.
#1.) How long do you think God meant when He said for ever?
#2.) How much of Israel is no longer owned by Israel because of this new "Peace
Covenant" going on in Israel?
The False Peace that
is going on now between Israel and Palestine is against God's will because
in order to maintain the "Peace" (Not be terrorized) Israel had to surrender
large portions of GOD'S Promised land. They have surrendered the land and
are still being attacked by the Palestinians.

Here's some food for thought. Several
times now you've heard or seen in our studies that those who bless Israel
will be blessed and those who curse Israel will be cursed. Think about
this: During the period from the late 40's through the late 60's when the
United States supported the Jews, what was the economic prosperity of
America like compared to the times that the U.S. hasn't backed Israel
