The ancient city Beth-Shemesh in Egypt meant “House of the Sun” and was later called Heliopolis or “City of the Sun” by the Greeks. The Hebrew word Shemesh may mean sun, yet it is a double-entendre, for it may also be a contraction for Shem and ish, and mean people of Shem. Ever since the days of Noah, it was the descendants of Shem who were chosen out to carry forth God's will in the earth, and the offspring were narrowed down from there to focus on the seed of Abraham, and Jacob after him. A shining city on a hill cannot be hidden. Upon the acceptance of the Word of God and the break from tyranny found in the Reformation, the White Christian nations of the world have made many marvelous accomplishments. By this alone we should know that we are indeed the people of God, and this is exactly what is described in Revelation chapters 10 and 11, and Daniel chapter 7.
Covenant with Yahweh
Oaths were taken very seriously in the ancient world, and rituals were fulfilled in order to officiate them. The ritual conducted in Genesis chapter 15, where Abraham split certain animals in half and the essence of Yahweh passed between them, was one such ritual officiating an oath, and there are Mesopotamian inscriptions revealing that very ritual to have been a custom of the people at that time.
Destruction of Sodom and Gomorra
Promises made to Abraham
Genesis 15:2 And Abram said, Lord GOD, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? 3 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir. 4 And, behold, the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir. 5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. 6 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.
Abraham was not allowed by Yahweh God to substitute his own seed so neither are we allowed to substitute someone as seed with that of another man, Abraham’s offspring, or seed, today.
Genesis 17:2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. 3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, 4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. 5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. 6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. 7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. 8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God. 13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant. 19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him. 21 But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year
Genesis 22:16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:17That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;18And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.
This is a physical seed numbered as the sands of the sea: we see Moses mention it as already being fulfilled in his own time, but it was fulfilled even further during the deportations in the breaking forth of children. The multiplication of Israel in her captivity is demonstrated in Hosea 1:10
