Issachar, was the ninth born son of Jacob. His name means, “he is Hired”. They migrated to the Americas, around 536 B.C. during the Persian captivity.
Genesis 49: 1 “And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.” The last days occur from the days of Christ till today.
Hebrews 1:2, “Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the world.”
Genesis 49:14, “Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens.” The “burdens” is referring to the long hours and low wages the Mexicans are well known for working. Here are a few examples of the tribe of Issachars burdens: work ten to fifteen hours a day cleaning floors, washing dishes and in sweatshops etc., all low paying jobs. Working with little or no medical benefits, and so forth. Currently NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) is attempting to relocate many U.S. businesses to Mexico, where the people work hard and the labor wages are cheap. One of the most familiar signs of Mexico, is an ass (burro) with two large satchels (burdens) on either side of the beast.
Genesis 49:15, “And he saw that rest was good”, represents them resting from their “burdens”, working long hours. The Mexicans are the most well known for their SIESTAS hich means “REST”. “And the land that it was pleasant“, Mexico, is one of the worlds favorite vacation spots because of the beautiful weather and wonderful sites. “And bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto tribute”, Issachar, bowed the shoulder to bear meaning serve. In 1540, Hernan Cortes, a Conquistador from Spain, had 27,000 Aztec slaves while the notoriously cruel Alvarado had 20,000. In total the 30 highest ranking Conquistadors claimed 180,000 Mexican slaves, who were forced to pay tribute of gold, silver, herbs, and spices. Today the Mexicans, are well known for being hard workers for little to no money, “servant unto tribute”.
Deuteronomy 33:1, “And this is the blessing wherewith Moses the man of God blessing the children of Israel before his death.”
Deuteronomy 33:18, “And of Zebulun he said, Rejoice, Zebulun, in thy going out; and Issachar in thy tents”, the tribe of Zebulun (Mayans), would go out and meet the tribe of Issachar (Aztecs) in their Mountains, at particular seasons and holidays.
Deuteronomy 33:19, “They shall call the people unto the Mountain;”, the tribe of Issachar, would blow the Ram’s horn to call Zebulun to the Mountains, both in their original land of Israel and in the Americas. “There they shall offer sacrifices of righteousness:”, back in Israel, these tribes offered sacrifices according to the Commandments, upon mounds and their desire was to do the same in another land (see migration). They erected pyramids, just as their forefathers did in ancient Egypt; in Teutihuacan, at Uxmal, Tocana, the borders of Chiapas, Pico do Orizaka etc. However, their sacrifices were anything but righteous, they sacrificed human flesh and were reputed for eating the heart and other bodily parts, Hosea 8:13-14, “They sacrifice flesh for the sacrifices of mine offerings, and eat it; but the Lord accepteth them not; now will he remember their iniquity, and visit their sins; they shall return to Egypt.”
Hosea 8:14, “For Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and buildeth temples….”, in time, both the Aztecs and Mayans forgot the True Lord of Israel , and built temples to Quetzalcoah, Tlalac the rain-god and the god Chac etc., they have gone so far as to honor a holiday called , “Day of the Dead“; Zampazuchil, which was an ancient Babylonian (Ethiopians) custom. Psalms 106:28, “They joined themselves also unto Baal-Peor (Satan) an ate the sacrifices of the dead.”
The Aztecs, were also reputed for having superior knowledge of times and heavenly signs, 1 Chronicles 12:32, “And the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do…..”

“Early in the 19th century, a young member of Parliament, Edward king, Viscount Kingsborough, was struck by the beauty and mystery of a Mexican Indian codex, or manuscript, in the Bodleian library at Oxford. He exhausted his fortune… in attempting to prove that the Israelites were ancestors of the Indians of Mexico”.

“Friar Diego Duran came to see elements of a Judaic character in the old Aztec religion. At first this tendency appears only as a fervent search for Jewish analogies, provoked by Aztec customs such as the eating of only unleavened bread on certain days of the year, and the use of baths for purification. In time, this begins to seem to Duran like over whelming evidence that the Indians are indeed descended from the Lost Tribes of Israel, and he opens his last and most important work; The History of the Indies of New Spain (Mexico). Certain fundamental legends can be explained such as the one that Montezuma presented to Hernan Cortes; the departure of the great lord in antiquity now seems to Duran to be a memory of Moses. As for the abject condition of the Indians, it can now be accounted for in the classic way: this is God’s punishment once again wrought upon the Jewish people for their sins”.
History of the American Indians, by James Adair page 207.
“Lopez de Gomara tells us, the Mexicans were so devout, as to offer to the sun and earth, a small quantity of every kind of meat and drink, before any of themselves tasted it; and that they sacrificed part of their corn, fruits, etc., in like manner; otherwise, they were deemed haters of and contemned by their gods. Is not this a confused Spanish picture of the Jewish daily sacrifices, and first fruit offering, as formerly observed? And which, as we have seen, are now offered up by the northern Indians, to the bountiful giver, the Supreme Holy Spirit of Fire, whom they invoke in that most sacred and awful song, Ya-Ha-Wah, and loudly ascribe to him Halleu Yah, for his continued goodness to them. The Spanish writers say, that when Cortes approached Mexico, Montezuma shut himself up, and continued for the space of eight days in prayer and fasting”.
