Though he lives in Ethiopia on the African continent, this man's heritage is from South Arabia in an area called Habashia and from an ancient tribe called the Bani Habash. These people descended from Sheba, a grandson of Abraham, or possibly even earlier, from Joctan, the great-great-grandson of Shem. Joctan's tenth son was Sheba. The Queen of Sheba, who traveled to Jerusalem to see Solomon, was in this heritage, and the Ethiopians are directly related to the Yemenites. During the Kingdom reign of Messiah, Ethiopia will be restored to the Semitic family to some degree.

Psalms 68:31 "Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands unto God."
