Ham's Rebellion

"Cursed be Canaan; A servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren."

This curse was laid upon the shoulders of Ham and his descendants, just before Noah's death, as a result of Ham's indiscretion at "seeing" his "father's nakedness."

The expression "saw the nakedness of his father" found in Genesis 9:22 carries a fuller meaning as we read in Leviticus 18 and most succinctly in chapter 20:11.

And the man that lieth with his father’s wife hath uncovered his father’s nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

The Hebrew word for 'saw' has a larger meaning than just a 'passing glance.' Some have suggested he may have violated his father's wife or at least humiliated or belittled his parents.

That curse remains unless individuals repent and allow Yeshua to that upon himself their curge for them.

As we examine the "table of the Nations" in Genesis 10 we find that Shem and Japheth's descendants migrated predomanently north and the far north while Ham's went mainly south.

Is it predominantly Ham's dependents that are today rebelling against those of Shem and Japheth?
