PrefaceHistory of the Spiritual Israel Church and Its Army and God’s Chosen people Israel


The Spiritual Israel Church and Its Army was incorporated as an ecclesiastical corporation in 1938 by Bishop William D. Dixon. It was formerly known as the Israel of God Church in David founded by Bishop Derks Fields. In our church many great men and women have come forth to give us the message of the God of Israel in our time and generation. In The Spiritual Israel Church and Its Army, the head official of our church receives the title, King of All Israel, in accordance with I Kings 8:25 which reads: “Therefore now, Lord God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit on the throne of Israel; so that thy children take heed to their way, that they walk before me as thou hast walked before me”. The Kings of Israel over The Spiritual Israel Church and Its Army in our church history have been:


Bishop William D. Dixon – 1938 to 1953

Archbishop Martin Tumpkin –1953 to 1972

Bishop Robert Haywood – 1972 to 2000

Bishop Jordan C. Wiley -   2000 to 2008

Today the King of All Israel is Bishop Bobby J. Davis.


Other great men and women in The Spiritual Israel Church and Its Army in past time were Bishop George Coachman and Bishop A.J. Tumpkin, both Overseers, which is second in command to the King of Israel, Bishop Bride Mother Rose Alice Tumpkin, who was Superior Mother and first female Bishop of the church, Bishop John E. Reed and Bishop Flemings, whom were Evangelist Bishops. There were also many other men and women who sacrificed time, effort and money to make The Spiritual Israel Church and Its Army what it is today.


In the beginning of The Spiritual Israel Church and Its Army the man of God in each generation saw that it was important to awaken the so-called Negro to who they really were. Black people as a whole were ignorant of who they really were because they had been hoodwinked and bamboozled by European gentile Christianity doctrine. The Kings of Israel and the disciples they taught in this time and generation took to heart the task of enlightening the so-called Negro to his true identity. Most black people were and many still are ignorant to the fact that they are the children of Israel that they read about in the Old Testament of the Bible. Many still do not recognize that they were cut off from being a nation so that the name of Israel would be no more in remembrance as stated in Psalm 83:4 and nicknamed to keep them ignorant of the knowledge of their true identity. Many black people do not know that their true nationality is Ethiopian as this is the environment that we originated from. In early historical times the entire continent of Africa was called Ethiopia as Africa is a name given to the continent by early Europeans who came to the continent looking for slave labor in the 15th and 16th centuries.


The God of Israel chose the children of Israel to be a special people unto himself, (Deut 7:6 and Isaiah 44:1) and he gave us a special name to be recognized by and this name is Israel as we are to wear our Fathers’ name. Since the God of Israel is our Father he gave us his name and He requires all that will truly believe in him to surname themselves spiritually with this name. Isaiah 44:5 reads, “One shall say, I am the Lord’s; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the Lord and surname himself by the name of Israel.”  This is the way today to become an Israelite. Many people today prefer to be called Christians, but this is a man-made name.  All throughout biblical history the God of Israel has always called his people the children of Israel.


When we lay claim to be the children of Israel it is not without merit. The Scriptures, particularly the 28th chapter of Deuteronomy, tells precisely and almost in chilling detail what would befall the children of Israel for being disobedient to the commandments, ordinances and statues of the God of Israel. The 68th verse is where the claim becomes undeniable. It reads, “And the Lord shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you”. The descendants of the so-called Negroes of North, Central and South America are the only people in the annals of history  to be carried off into captivity and into forced slave labor by the way of ships. This prophecy was only given to the children of Israel forewarning them of their plight if they failed to adhere to the commandments of the God of Israel. Since this prophetic condition only fell on the descendants of the so-called Negroes of North, Central, and South America, they, and only they can biblically claim to be the children of Israel for they and only they were the ones who lived in and through this prophecy. No other people, regardless of heritage, can truthfully make this claim. This truth informs all who are willing to accept it that the so-called Negroes are the only true descendants of the children of Israel. Other scriptures relating to this truth can be found in Joel 3:6, Nahum 3:10 and Acts 7:6.


This is the natural history of The Spiritual Israel Church and Its Army and of God Chosen people Israel. This does not limit anyone; regardless of race or natural origin from becoming Israel as all people have that opportunity by following the scripture in Isaiah 44:5 as stated above. We believe it is important to know the truth and this truth must be accepted by all who desire to please the one true God, the God of Israel
