Are Native Americans descendants of Abraham?

The Native Americans are indeed the seed of Abraham and a bit more than Jews. Jesus said that he had flocks of other folds. “And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.” (John 10:16 KJV) In my journey among the various denominations of Christendom, I’ve read the Book of Mormon and found it to be a history of the native peoples of the Americas. Instead of taking it along with the Holy Bible to the Native Americans, the followers of Joseph Smith set up their own cult after he died. Shame!

In the record of the Jaredites (The Book of Ether), the language of the Jaredites is not confounded at the Tower of Babel during the days of Peleg (2374 – 2135 BC). {See Genesis 10:21-32 noting verse 26 – Jerah – Jerahites & Jered – Jeredites.} The Lord promises to lead them to a choice land and make them a great nation. They do and become a great nation, but centuries later die out because like the history of the children of Israel (both houses) they kept turning away from God. Only a remnant of Jews (Judah) was left after 70 AD.    

In the sixth century BC, Lehi and his family with others (a few Egyptians) flee Judah prior to its downfall to King Nebuchadnezzar in 598 BC. (2 Kings 19:30-31, Isaiah 37:31-32) Lehi was a district near Jerusalem and people were sometimes named after the district in which they lived. (Judges 15:9,14,19) From the introduction to the First Book of Nephi (son of Lehi): “An account of Lehi and his wife Sariah, and his four sons, being called, (beginning at the eldest) Laman, Lemuel, Sam, and Nephi. The Lord warns Lehi to depart out of the land of Jerusalem, because he prophesieth unto the people concerning their iniquity and they seek to destroy his life. He taketh three days’ journey into the wilderness with his family. Nephi taketh his brethren and returneth to the land of Jerusalem after the record of the Jews. The account of their sufferings. They take the daughters of Ishmael to wife. They take their families and depart into the wilderness. Their sufferings and afflictions in the wilderness. The course of their travels. They come to the large waters. Nephi’s brethren rebel against him. He confoundeth them, and buildeth a ship. They call the name of the place Bountiful. They cross the large waters into the promised land, and so forth. This is according to the account of Nephi; or in other words, I, Nephi, wrote this record.”

Lehi’s sons married daughters of the Ishmaelites, who were of the son of Abraham via Haggar, the Egyptian handmaid to Sarah. So, as you can see, Native Americans are of the seed of Abraham in more ways than one. God made a huge promise to his servant Abraham! (Genesis 22:1-21)

From the history of the ancient Mayas: “Mesoamerican peoples built pyramids from around 1000 B.C. up until the time of the Spanish conquest in the early 16th century. (Egyptian pyramids are much older than American ones; the earliest Egyptian pyramid, the Pyramid of Djoser, was built in the 27 century BC). The earliest known pyramid in the Americas stands at La Venta in Tabasco, Mexico. Built by the Olmecs, the first major Mesoamerican civilization (a group famous for other firsts, like chocolate and the use of for sports), the pyramids dates to between 1000 B.C. and 400 B.C. American pyramids were generally built of earth and then faced with stone, typically in a stepped, or layered, shape topped by a platform or temple structure. They are often referred to as “stepped pyramids.”

Just as there was a falling away to the Babylonian Mystery Religion in the Eastern Hemisphere around the second to fourth century AD, the same happened in the Western Hemisphere. From the last book in the Book of Mormon: “The Book of Moroni – Chapter 1 – Moroni writes for the benefit of the Lamanites—The Nephites who will not deny Christ are put to death. About a.d. 401–21.”

From the history of Hernan Cortez: “He entered Tenochtitlan, the Aztec capital home to ruler Montezuma II, on November 8, 1519. Tenochtitlán, located near today’s Mexico City, had more than 140,000 inhabitants at its height, and was the most densely populated city ever to exist in Mesoamerica. Montezuma, thinking Cortés and his men were envoys from the god Quetzalcoatl who was prophesied to return that year in the Aztec calendar, treated him as an honored guest. Seizing his chance, Cortés took Montezuma hostage and his soldiers raided the city.”

All throughout history, it seems that one apostasy supplants another, but it’s really the same old Babel of Nimrod; The False Religion of Nimrod, Rome The Mother of Harlots, and The Pope (pulpitandpen.org) – just new and improved with a new brand name; however, there is the remnant that keeps the commandments of God and has the faith of Jesus Christ. (Rev. 12:17, 14:12, 22:14) Stay strong! LOLGB+
