I do not believe the true Israelites/Hebrews are one set race. Israelites have been scattered for thousands of years now. The first ten tribes to be scattered vanished mostly among the nations of Assyria, Persia, Babylon, and Africa. I believe Rasta is fullfilling the prophecy below:
Isaiah 43:5 "I (JAH) will bring your offspring from the East, and gather you from the West. To the North I will say; 'Give them up!', and to the South, 'Do not hold them!'. Bring back My sons from far away, My daughters from the end of the earth - all those who bear My Name, whom I have created for My Glory, whom I have formed, whom I have made. Bring forward the people that is blind (for the Truth), yet has eyes, that is deaf and yet has ears. Let all the nations muster and assemble with every race. Which of them ever declared this or foretold this in the past? Let them bring their witnesses ... so that they may say, 'It is true'. You yourselves are My witnesses - it is JAH Who speaks - My servants whom I have chosen, that men may know and believe Me and understand that it is I. No god was formed before Me nor will be after Me. I, I am JAH - there is no other Savior but Me ... it is JAH Who speaks - and I, I am your God. I am He from Eternity."
This clearley states the Israelites will be gathered and shown the truth at the coming of Jah Rastafari crowned king of kings. Most true Rastas are lost Israelites but dont even know it! InI are being gathered and will return to Ethiopia Zion one day!
Now notice in Isiah where it states "and I will say to the North give them up, and to the south don't hold them.
The North is North America, and the South is all the nations in the West Indes who kept JAH Idren in slavery. Eventualy InI will fullfill the prophecy and leave Babylon FOR GOOD!
