My Note:  Eat dung, drink piss  Ref. Scripture II Kings 18:27

They may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you?

Scripture:  2 Kings 18:27  But Rabshakeh said unto them, Hath my master sent me to thy master, and to thee, to speak these words? hath he not sent me to the men which sit on the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you?

King Hezekiah of Judah did what was right in the sight of the Lord.

2 Kings 18:1  Now it came to pass in the third year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, that Hezekiah the son of Ahaz king of Judah began to reign.
2  Twenty and five years old was he when he began to reign; and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Abi, the daughter of Zachariah.
And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that David his father did.
4  He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan.
5  He trusted in the LORD God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him.
6  For he clave to the LORD, and departed not from following him, but kept his commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses.
7  And the LORD was with him; and he prospered whithersoever he went forth: and he rebelled against the king of Assyria, and served him not.
8  He smote the Philistines, even unto Gaza, and the borders thereof, from the tower of the watchmen to the fenced city.

King Shalmaneser of Assyria came up against Samaria, Israel from 745-721 B.C., and carried them away unto Assyria.
This is the 10 tribe northern nation of Israelites named Israel which was carried away and disappeared and have not to this day returned to their homeland in the middle east. Why we Christians think they are a part of the people we call Jews today is beyond belief. They never were Jews, never lived in Judah or were and in any part from the tribe of Judah; they were Israelites from Israel not Judea. Their capital city was Samaria not Jerusalem. They have never returned and today make up the Christian nation of the Europe and America.

9  And it came to pass in the fourth year of king Hezekiah, which was the seventh year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, that Shalmaneser king of Assyria came up against Samaria, and besieged it. (Samaria, not Judah)
10  And at the end of three years they took it: even in the sixth year of Hezekiah, that is the ninth year of Hoshea king of Israel, Samaria was taken.
11  And the king of Assyria did carry away Israel unto Assyria, and put them in Halah and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes:
12  Because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD their God, but transgressed his covenant, and all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded, and would not hear them, nor do them.
13  Now in the fourteenth year of king Hezekiah did Sennacherib king of Assyria come up against all the fenced cities of Judah, and took them.
14  And Hezekiah king of Judah sent to the king of Assyria to Lachish, saying, I have offended; return from me: that which thou puttest on me will I bear. And the king of Assyria appointed unto Hezekiah king of Judah three hundred talents of silver and thirty talents of gold.
15  And Hezekiah gave him all the silver that was found in the house of the LORD, and in the treasures of the king's house.
16  At that time did Hezekiah cut off the gold from the doors of the temple of the LORD, and from the pillars which Hezekiah king of Judah had overlaid, and gave it to the king of Assyria.

King Sennacherib of Assyria came up against the fenced cities of Judah also in 701 B.C. and took them, but not all of Judah.
This is part of the 2 tribe southern nation of Israelites named Judah who were also taken and never returned. They too are part of the makeup Christian nations in Europe and America.

What of the rest of ancient Judah? The Israelites still remaining after King Sennacherib of Assyria's invasion.

17  And the king of Assyria sent Tartan and Rabsaris and Rabshakeh from Lachish to king Hezekiah with a great host against Jerusalem. And they went up and came to Jerusalem. And when they were come up, they came and stood by the conduit of the upper pool, which is in the highway of the fuller's field.
18  And when they had called to the king, there came out to them Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah the son of Asaph the recorder.
19  And Rabshakeh said unto them, Speak ye now to Hezekiah, Thus saith the great king, the king of Assyria, What confidence is this wherein thou trustest?
20  Thou sayest, (but they are but vain words,) I have counsel and strength for the war. Now on whom dost thou trust, that thou rebellest against me?
21  Now, behold, thou trustest upon the staff of this bruised reed, even upon Egypt, on which if a man lean, it will go into his hand, and pierce it: so is Pharaoh king of Egypt unto all that trust on him.
22  But if ye say unto me, We trust in the LORD our God: is not that he, whose high places and whose altars Hezekiah hath taken away, and hath said to Judah and Jerusalem, Ye shall worship before this altar in Jerusalem?

Remember, the king of Assyria is only now dealing with the remnant of Israelites who remain in Judah.
23  Now therefore, I pray thee, give pledges to my lord the king of Assyria, and I will deliver thee two thousand horses, if thou be able on thy part to set riders upon them.
24  How then wilt thou turn away the face of one captain of the least of my master's servants, and put thy trust on Egypt for chariots and for horsemen?
25  Am I now come up without the LORD against this place to destroy it? The LORD said to me, Go up against this land, and destroy it.
26  Then said Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, and Shebna, and Joah, unto Rabshakeh, Speak, I pray thee, to thy servants in the Syrian language; for we understand it: and talk not with us in the Jews' language in the ears of the people that are on the wall. (These people may legitimately be called Jews because them live in Judea and are part of the original nation of Judah, the southern kingdom)

27  But Rabshakeh said unto them, Hath my master sent me to thy master, and to thee, to speak these words? hath he not sent me to the men which sit on the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you?

Rabshakeh said, "Let not Hezekiah deceive you: for he shall not be able to deliver you out of his hand:  Neither let Hezekiah make you trust in the LORD, saying, The LORD will surely deliver us, and this city shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria."

28  Then Rabshakeh stood and cried with a loud voice in the Jews' language, and spake, saying, Hear the word of the great king, the king of Assyria:
29  Thus saith the king, Let not Hezekiah deceive you: for he shall not be able to deliver you out of his hand:
30  Neither let Hezekiah make you trust in the LORD, saying, The LORD will surely deliver us, and this city shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.

He is trying to convince them to make a treaty with the King of Assyria rather than to trust in the Lord.

31  Hearken not to Hezekiah: for thus saith the king of Assyria, Make an agreement with me by a present, and come out to me, and then eat ye every man of his own vine, and every one of his fig tree, and drink ye every one the waters of his cistern:
32  Until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of corn and wine, a land of bread and vineyards, a land of oil olive and of honey, that ye may live, and not die: and hearken not unto Hezekiah, when he persuadeth you, saying, The LORD will deliver us.
33  Hath any of the gods of the nations delivered at all his land out of the hand of the king of Assyria?
34  Where are the gods of Hamath, and of Arpad? where are the gods of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Ivah? have they delivered Samaria out of mine hand?
35  Who are they among all the gods of the countries, that have delivered their country out of mine hand, that the LORD should deliver Jerusalem out of mine hand?
36  But the people held their peace, and answered him not a word: for the king's commandment was, saying, Answer him not.
37  Then came Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah the son of Asaph the recorder, to Hezekiah with their clothes rent, and told him the words of Rabshakeh.

King Hezekiah would hear none of that nonsense.

2 Kings 19:1  And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the LORD.
2  And he sent Eliakim, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests, covered with sackcloth, to Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz.
3  And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.
4  It may be the LORD thy God will hear all the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God; and will reprove the words which the LORD thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that are left.
5  So the servants of king Hezekiah came to Isaiah.
6  And Isaiah said unto them, Thus shall ye say to your master, Thus saith the LORD, Be not afraid of the words which thou hast heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.
7  Behold, I will send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a rumour, and shall return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.
8  So Rabshakeh returned, and found the king of Assyria warring against Libnah: for he had heard that he was departed from Lachish.
9  And when he heard say of Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, Behold, he is come out to fight against thee: he sent messengers again unto Hezekiah, saying,

Still trying to convince Judah not to trust in the Lord for their safety.

10  Thus shall ye speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, Let not thy God in whom thou trustest deceive thee, saying, Jerusalem shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.
11  Behold, thou hast heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands, by destroying them utterly: and shalt thou be delivered?
12  Have the gods of the nations delivered them which my fathers have destroyed; as Gozan, and Haran, and Rezeph, and the children of Eden which were in Thelasar?
13  Where is the king of Hamath, and the king of Arpad, and the king of the city of Sepharvaim, of Hena, and Ivah?

King Hezekiah still not buying any of this nonsense.

14  And Hezekiah received the letter of the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up into the house of the LORD, and spread it before the LORD.
15  And Hezekiah prayed before the LORD, and said, O LORD God of Israel, which dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.
16  LORD, bow down thine ear, and hear: open, LORD, thine eyes, and see: and hear the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent him to reproach the living God.
17  Of a truth, LORD, the kings of Assyria have destroyed the nations and their lands,
18  And have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no gods, but the work of men's hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them.
19  Now therefore, O LORD our God, I beseech thee, save thou us out of his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the LORD God, even thou only.
20  Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, That which thou hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria I have heard.
21  This is the word that the LORD hath spoken concerning him; The virgin the daughter of Zion hath despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee.
22  Whom hast thou reproached and blasphemed? and against whom hast thou exalted thy voice, and lifted up thine eyes on high? even against the Holy One of Israel.
23  By thy messengers thou hast reproached the Lord, and hast said, With the multitude of my chariots I am come up to the height of the mountains, to the sides of Lebanon, and will cut down the tall cedar trees thereof, and the choice fir trees thereof: and I will enter into the lodgings of his borders, and into the forest of his Carmel.
24  I have digged and drunk strange waters, and with the sole of my feet have I dried up all the rivers of besieged places.
25  Hast thou not heard long ago how I have done it, and of ancient times that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste fenced cities into ruinous heaps.
26  Therefore their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded; they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the housetops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up.
27  But I know thy abode, and thy going out, and thy coming in, and thy rage against me.
28  Because thy rage against me and thy tumult is come up into mine ears, therefore I will put my hook in thy nose, and my bridle in thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.
29  And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such things as grow of themselves, and in the second year that which springeth of the same; and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruits thereof.
30  And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall yet again take root downward, and bear fruit upward.
31  For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the LORD of hosts shall do this.
32  Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shield, nor cast a bank against it.
33  By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the LORD.
34  For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.

The Lord delivered them out of Assyrian hands.

This group of Jews at that time put their trust in the Lord and He saved them from being captured; in fact the Assyrians were defeated that night by the Lord. 
35  And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the LORD went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.
36  So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.
37  And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword: and they escaped into the land of Armenia. And Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead

But 130 years later, they too, the rest of Judah, were carried away, not by Assyria, but by Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon.They were the last of the 2 tribes still in Judah and some of them did return to Judah around 457 B. C. and really did become part of the people we call Jews today.

The following is some history of this last group of Israelites from Judah which were carried away by Nebuchadnezzar.

In 457 BC King Artaxerxes decreed that any Jew in his realm,
including the priests and Levites,
may return to Jerusalem Ezra 7:13 after the Temple is rebuilt.
Remember, we are talking about being carried away by Babylon here, not Assyria.
Ezra and Nehemiah went back to Jerusalem,
but they took with them only a REMNANT from the House of Judah.
The rest of Judah, the majority of them,
went north over the Caucasus Mountains with the other tribes of Israel
and to this very day most of true Judah and Israel do not know who they are.
Though they basically comprise the Christian nations of the world,
in their ignorance they call themselves gentiles.

Now during the trip back to Jerusalem,
at one point Ezra stopped and gathered the people together and took a census.
And guess what he found, or better yet, what he didn't find?

Read it yourself:
Ezra 8:15 And I gathered them together to the river than runneth to Ahava;
and there abode we in tents three days:
and I viewed the people, and the priests, and found there none of the sons of Levi.

There were no Levitical priests among them.
So Ezra sent some Nethinims, who were temple helpers,
back to Babylon to get some Real Ministers, some genuine Levites,
for the house of God.

[17] And I sent them with commandment unto Iddo the chief at the place Casiphia,
and I told them what they should say unto Iddo,
and to his brethren the Nethinims, at the place Casiphia,
that they should bring unto us ministers for the house of our God.

[18] And by the good hand of our God upon us they brought us a man of understanding,
of the sons of Mahli, the son of Levi, the son of Israel;
and Sherebiah, with his sons and his brethren, eighteen;

Well, they did what Ezra asked them to.
They brought back some Levites,
but they did not come back with very many.

And though these Levites would serve in the temple for some time,
by the time of Christ the sons of Cain will have taken over.
In fact, Caiaphas the high priest,
would actually be appointed by the Roman governor.

Again, so that we understand the conversation that is about to take place
in John between Jesus and the scribes and Pharisees
we need to know that out of the 400 year period from the time of Malachi,
the last book in the Old Testament,
to the time of Christ would come forth the Great Synagogue.

And many of the ruling authorities of the temple,
those religious leaders in charge,
would not be of the seed of Abraham,
i.e. true Israelites or Levitical Priests,
but would be the wicked sons of Cain,
who are called "kenites" (pronounced cainites) in the Bible.

They will try to convince Jesus that they are of the "seed" of Abraham,
BY BIRTH! But they are not!
They are liars and are of the synagogue of Satan (Rev. 2:9, 3:9

Is it any wonder Jesus told them
John 8:44 "Ye are of your father the devil,
and the lusts of your father ye will do.
He was a murderer from the beginning,
and abode not in the truth,
because there is no truth in him.
When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own:
for he is a liar, and the father of it."

It doesn't get any plainer than these words of Jesus Christ.
These particular scribes and Pharisees were not who they claimed to be,
i.e. they were not children of Abraham,
and so by default they could not even be of Judah.
They were descendants of Cain,
the first son of Satan, the first murderer.
It was Cain's offspring, the kenites,
who were responsible for the crucifixion of Jesus Christ,
though Judah has been the one blamed for it.

Now most preachers and ministers and commentaries
will try to "spiritualize away" this 44th verse in John 8,
and say Christ wasn't talking about "sperma", i.e. seed and offspring.

But let me ask you,
is there not a group of people who run around today claiming that they are God's chosen people?

Are they?

Those Christians who belong to the church of Smyrna know they are not!
Rev. 2:8-9 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write;
These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;

[9] I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty,
(but thou art rich) andI know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews,
and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

Those Christians who belong to the church of Philadelphia know they are not!

Rev. 3:7-9 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write;
These things saith he that is holy, he that is true,
he that hath the key of David, he that openeth,
and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

[8] I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door,
and no man can shut it:
for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word,
and hast not denied my name.

[9] Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan,
which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie;
behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet,
and to know that I have loved thee.

The Jews have, since the New Testament was written, further deluded their original Israelite purity when the Khazars empire converted to Judaism.
The question is "Just who are those today who claim to be Jews (of Judah) but are NOT?"

First of all, if you look up the word "Jew" (Ioudaios in Greek) as used in the New Testament you will find it has two meanings: (1) A person who is actually of the tribe of Judah, and (2) A person who resides in the land of Judea. In other words, just as a resident of Texas would be called a Texan or Tex, likewise a resident of Judea would be called a Judean or Jew.

What we are now going to document from the pages of history is that there are truly many today who call themselves Jews, meaning of Judah, who are in fact NOT from any of the tribes of Israel, much less from our brother Judah. What we learn from this is simply that Judah has been greatly "infiltrated" with non-Judahites who are not merely gentiles but actually the bad "seed", i.e. the "tares"! (see pamphlet #7000 & #7007) And since our purpose here is to simply document that Judah is MIXED with non-Judahites we suggest that you do an independent study on your own knowing first that the Jews of our times fall into two main divisions: the Sephardim Jews and the Askenazim Jews.

In your research you will find what has been called by some "an embarrassment to historians" and even "the most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetuated". It is the history of the powerful pagan Khazar Empire which flourished from the seventh to the eleventh century A.D. You see, history shows that the entire nation of Khazars beginning with the Kagan (akin to Kajin), their ruler, and the ruling classes were converted to Judaism!! They later migrated to Poland and Russia and formed the cradle of Western Jewry! How about that?

The following are a few short excerpts taken from the subject titled "Khazars" in the " Encyclopedia Britannica", 1973, pgs. 328-330.


"... Khazar civilization shows a fairly complex texture and their religious life raises more than one problem. Christianity, Islam, Judaism and some sort of "pagan" worship are all attested by sources. About 740 the Khazar ruler - and probably the greater part of the ruling classes - were converted to Judaism. The circumstances of their conversion remain obscure, the depth of the Jewish layer difficult to assess; the fact itself is, however, undisputed and unparalleled in the history of central Eurasia.

"The story of this conversion of the Khazars had a considerable and lasting impact on the western world. The first to record it was Druthmar of Aquitaine (9th century), but circumstances of the conversion are related in greater detail in various Hebrew documents such as the so-called "Khazar Correspondence." This consists  in a letter (c. 955) from the Spanish Jew Hasdai ibn Shaprut to the Khazar king and in a reply (of contested authenticity) sent by Joseph, king of the Khazars.

Most people have never heard of the Khazars or their empire which at one point "exacted tribute" from 23 nations. Of course the "seed of the serpent" has been marked with "cover-ups" ever since the fig leaves were sewn together in the garden of Eden. Hence the last two sentences of the Britannica article should come as no surprise:
"Extensive excavations brought to light the remains of the Khazar fortress Sarkel, on the lower Don, built in the 9th century with the help of Greek architects. This site, which clearly revealed the mixed character of Khazar civilization, unfortunately had to be inundated during the construction of the Volga-Don canal."

You know what? It is now time to "pause for the cause" and learn the horticulture of figs and understand that there are both good figs and bad figs, as in edible figs and non-edible figs! Why? Because in Jeremiah 24 the prophet is going to see two baskets of figs set out in the land of Judea. Here is a sneak preview of what he saw: Jeremiah 24:2 "One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad."

The question is, "Do you know who the Present day Jews are?"

"Do you know who you are?"

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
