The Mesechs

WHO WERE THE MESECHS?
My bible concordance says they were the people inhabiting the mountains between Iberia Armenia, and Colchis ( today’s Turkish republic of Georgia). More about them later. Genesis 10:2 says they were “The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Mesech, and Tiras.”

WHAT WERE THE MESECHS?
The Mesechs were the slaves of the Phoenicians. But they were glorified slaves. Their job was to procure and oversee slaves for the Phoenicians, teach them skills such as metal and gold working, and other crafts. They also bought and sold manufactured goods for the Phoenicians. The Bible confirms this: “Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they were the merchants: they traded the persons of men and vessels of brass in thy market.” (Ezekiel 27:13).

WHAT DOES THE WORD “MESECH” MEAN?
In the Aramaic language that the Phoenicians generally spoke, MESHIKA, the real word for “Meshech,” means Messiah. In Turkish, a similar word means “Mesi” or “Meshi.”

WHY DID THE JEWS IN THE DIASPORA, ALONG WITH THE IRAQIS AND INDIANS, TRY TO DEFEAT AND DESTROY THE MESECHS AND GOG?

Because the Mesechs were “good” slaves, lovingly working themselves to death for their Phoenician masters, the Phoenicians treated them as saints, just as moneyed people and employers in the USA love our own Mesech (Meshika) immigrants who accept slave wages and other indignities without complaining too much. However, the day came when the Meshika grew tired of their servitude. They rebelled against their masters and recruited surrounding savage hill tribes in Afghanistan and Pakistan to help them. In the Ramayana, these savage hill tribes were called Rakshasas and Pisacas. This rebellion finally spread to southern India, in the area of what is now Kerala.

Kubera (our Heber or Khyber), God of gold and good fortune, who was really a Bulgarian, the country in which the preceding gold articles were found, captured as many as possible, deporting them to what is now Sri Lanka. He probably reasoned that if they could be taken out of their inhospitable mountain environment and taken to tropical, lush, and fertile Lanka, they’d settle down and behave. But they didn’t. He then took them to Patala or what is now Meso-America. They have been here in America ever since.

With the exception of Moscow, now just a Russian city, you won’t find them in Central Asia and India anymore. To a man, they’re all here!!!

We of the Americas know them as MESHIKA (Mexican; MESHIKA is their Nahuatl name) and MICHOACAN in Mexico, MOCHE or MOCHICA in Peru, MOSKITO in Nicaragua), Here in the United States they are called MUSKEGAN, MUSKOGEE, MICHIGAN, MOHICA, etc. The Hopi origin myths speak of a MUSKI where they once lived.

The Michoacanos of Mexico are especially interesting. The word Michoacan surely derives from the Turkic Meshech-khan or Mesech Khanate (kingdom). They are also called Tarasco and Purépecha. Tarasco derives from the Sanskrit Turushka, meaning “Turk.” Purépecha derives from a name of the five Krishtayas (Aryan or Turkish tribes), meaning Puru-Pasha (Puru leader). Their origin myths state that they were from a place called NARAN-SHAN. In my research I found this NARAN-SHAN in Himachal-Pradesh, India. And I found out much more. The appearance of the inhabitants of Naran and their dwellings were almost exactly like those of the Tarascos.

Some authorities think Michoacán was much larger than it was when the Spaniards arrived. Benedict Warren wrote in “The Conquest of Michoacan”: “The anthropologist José Corona Núñez cites the Codex Plancarte to support his contention that at one time the Tarascan kingdom included a large part of Northwestern New Mexico and even extended as far as Zuñi in New Mexico. He bases his argument on the place name Zibulan, which appears in the codex, another name for Zuñi. It is interesting to note that there appears to be some linguistic connection between the Tarascan and the Zuñian.” (p. 4.)
