One minute introduction

Radio Broadcast #1. - Listening time is 26 minutes.

  • When literature is offered the old mail address is deleted.  Most items mentioned are still available here.

  • The Amonite land claims in the Old Testament's book of Judges are similar to Indian and Mexican land claims in America today.

  • The Amonites were wrong claiming land lost 300 years earlier just as the Mexicans and Indians are wrong claiming land lost long ago.

  • The Amonite claim was fraudulent as are many claims today.

  • Pastor Emry asks, "How many of our ministers or politicians have ever read Judges 10 and 11 of the Book of Judges and even if they did, how many could see its relation to America of today?

  • U.S. government lawsuits on behalf of Indians against White People. What does the Bible say about all this and is there any word from God?

  • The Bible answer to Indian and Mexican land claims.

Radio Broadcast #2. - Listening time is 22 minutes.

Radio Broadcast #3. - Listening time is 21 minutes.

Radio Broadcast #4. - Listening time is 19 minutes.

  • Many Indian land claims are false just as in the Bible example. Israel obtained Amorite land in war. 300 years later claimed as 'our land' by Ammonites.

Compare Verses

Judges10:19 And Israel sent messengers unto Sihon king of the Amorites, the king of Heshbon; and Israel said unto him, Let us pass, we pray thee, through thy land into my place. Judges 11:13. And the king of the children of Ammon answered unto the messengers of Jephthah, Because Israel took away my land, when they came up out of Egypt, from Arnon even unto Jabbok, and unto Jordan: now therefore restore those lands again peaceably.

Compare Definitions

Amorite: emori (Hebrew) An Amorite; originally a mountaineer, but finally a Canaanite people living in the land east and west of the Jordan.
Amorite (Hebrew ’emōrî, Egyptian Amar, Akkadian Amurrū (corresponding to Sumerian MAR.TU or Martu) refers to a Semitic people who occupied the middle Euphrates area from the second half of the third millennium BC and also appear in the Tanakh.
Ammonites: Descendants of Lot, generally regarded as relatives of the Israelites.
Ammon or Ammonites (עַמּוֹן "People", Standard Hebrew Ammon, Tiberian Hebrew Ammôn), also referred to in the Bible as the "children of Ammon," were a people of eastern Palestine who along with the Moabites traced their origin to Lot, the nephew of the patriarch Abraham, and were regarded as close relatives of the Israelites and Edomites.

The dictionary does not say the Amorites are Ammonites! In verse 20 the Amorites refused passage and made war against Israel. And God delivered  to Israel the victory. So Israel claimed the land by right of conquest and had it for three hundred years before the Ammonites claimed it.

 Radio Broadcast #5. - Listening time is 23 minutes.
