I think it is important to note that Columbus’ four voyages that began in 1492 landed him in Central America and North South America. This is the year before the beginning of the four Blood Red Moon Tetrads in 1493 and 1494. This bit of history will help, in part, better understand the scattering of the Lost Tribes of Israel and dispersion of Jews during the expulsion of Jews from Spain in 1492 as a result of the Alhambra Decree.
“There, the Santa María ran aground on Christmas Day 1492 and had to be abandoned. Columbus was received by the native cacique Guacanagari, who gave him permission to leave some of his men behind. Columbus left 39 men, including Luis de Torres, the Converso interpreter, who spoke Hebrew and Arabic, and founded the settlement of La Navidad at the site of present-day Môle-Saint-Nicolas, Haiti.” – Wikipedia.
It is my thought that a sect of the Spanish somehow have roots leading to the 1/2 tribe of Menashe (west half) dating back to the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Celtiberians, Iberians. I am generalizing here but there are some good books on this topic.
Columbus departed from Spain with 3 ships (Santa Maria, Pinta, Santa Clara) in 1492. They landed on an island they named “San Salvador” which is in the Bahamas next to Cuba in Central America.
“After continually lobbying at the Spanish court and two years of negotiations, he finally had success in January 1492. Ferdinand and Isabella had just conquered Granada, the last Muslim stronghold on the Iberian Peninsula, and they received Columbus in Córdoba, in the Alcázarcastle. Isabella turned Columbus down on the advice of her confessor, and he was leaving town by mule in despair, when Ferdinand intervened. Isabella then sent a royal guard to fetch him, and Ferdinand later claimed credit for being ‘the principal cause why those islands were discovered’…About half of the financing was to come from private Italian investors, whom Columbus had already lined up.” – Wikepedia.
In 1493, just one year after the expulsion of Jews from Spain and the first year of the Blood Red Moon Tetrads that landed on Jewish Feast Days of Passover and First Day of Sukkot during those years; Columbus took his largest fleet of 17 ships to the New World. This was his second of four voyages. The first voyage had 3 ships, the third had 6 ships and the fourth had 4 ships. 1493 was also the year where Jews were expelled from Sicily. The 17 ships in the second voyage is highly suggestive of an exodus or immigration of some Jews. Note that Columbus’ interpreter spoke in Hebrew and Arabic.
It seems Cuba is like “Ground Zero” for the re-discovery of America, whereas the World Trade Center Site is “Ground Zero” for the dedication of America by George Washington. President Kennedy’s conflict in regards to the Cuban missile crisis comes to mind. I can see why that crisis began. That crisis incident seems prophetic to me now because I better understand where Columbus actually landed in all four voyages. Note also that Cuba was the center of massive judgment in recent years – a major earthquake, etc. I see this as Yahuah Elohim’s people being judged.
According to the Wikipedia article:
“Beginning in the 8th century, Muslims had conquered and settled most of the Iberian Peninsula. Jews, who had lived in these regions since Roman times, were considered “People of the Book” and given special status and often thrived under Muslim rule. The tolerance of the Muslim Moorish rulers of al-Andalus attracted Jewish immigration, and Jewish enclaves in Muslim Iberian cities flourished as places of learning and commerce. Progressively, however, living conditions for Jews in al-Andalus became harsher, especially after the fall of the Umayyad Caliphate.”
“The Reconquista, the gradual reconquest of Muslim Iberia by the Christian kingdoms, was driven by a powerful religious motivation: to reclaim Iberia for Christendom following the Umayyad conquest of Hispania centuries before. By the 14th century, most of the Iberian Peninsula (present-day Spain and Portugal) had been conquered by the Christian kingdoms of Castile, Aragon, Leon, Galicia, Navarre, and Portugal.”
“Overt hostility against Jews became more pronounced, finding expression in brutal episodes of violence and oppression. Thousands of Jews sought to escape these attacks by converting to Christianity; they were commonly called conversos, New Christians, or marranos. At first these conversions seemed an effective solution to the cultural conflict: many converso families met with social and commercial success. But eventually their success made these new Catholics unpopular with some of the clergy of the Church and royal hierarchies.”
