We went to the blog you mentioned:

There is a geo-political reality concerning strategic depth, proximity of alien
hostile Islamic populations, sparse water resources, economic and sustenance

obviate the possibility of Israel relinquishing control over the area even if
they should want to do so. And they do not.
As for Civil War: Since before the foundation of the State of Israel rival
ideologies have been struggling for control. There were times when outbreaks of
violence occurred. Civil War was narrowly averted in 1948 due to the
intercession of Rabbi Maimon of the National Religious Movement.

This whole trend of thought is troublesome to us.
Seek to Abandon their Fellow Israelites!
Are they Really Jews from Judah?
In the End Times Judah and Israel will re-unite into one kingdom (Ezekiel
ch.37), everybody will be informed what tribes they belong to
[Malachi 3:3 Maimonides, Mishneh Torah, The Laws of Kings, ch. 12,
and each tribe will dwell in its own tribal area alongside the other tribes
Before then the Tribes of Israel should be informed who they are for their own
sakes. They should also be encouraged to return to Biblical Values.
This should be considered the most important thing to be done at present.
The Ephraimites etc however do not seem interested in this.
They prefer to see themselves as separate from the others.
Their attitude is not that of Long Lost Israelites but rather of Long Lost Jews.
They seem to hope mostly that the Religious Jews in the settlements will accept
them as equals without expecting them to change their religion.
[Many of them would like to change the religion of the settlers to their own but
they are usually (though not always) reticent about openingly declaring it.]
Maybe the Messianics and Ephraimites are largely descended from Judah?
The whole Messianic Movement according to some accounts began from the Messianic
The Messianic Jews were a collection of Jews or half-Jews and Gentiles who
declared themselves to be Jewish. The Baptist Movement gave them money and
encouragement to set up their own movement. Gentiles who did not claim to be
Jewish began attending their services but were relegated to secondary status.
Partly in reaction to this discrimination the Messianic and Ephraimite movements
In other words they wanted to be regarded as the same as Christian Jews but
under another name.
They still want it.
They seem to lack consideration for their fellow Gentiles of Israelite descent.
The dream of many that we meet is to come and live in Israel alongside Jewish
and Ephraimite neighbors.
Perhaps this is what their inner souls tell them they should do?
Perhaps they are really descendants of Jews from Judah searching for a way to
rejoin Judah without having to change who they have been brought up to be?
they are Captive Jews as distinct from Northern Israelites?
Mutual Responsibility and a Need to Spread the Brit-Am Message.
Not only do Ephraimites seem to turn their backs on their fellow Gentile
Israelites but paradoxically also on the Bible!
Many do not care what the Hebrew Bible says concerning the Lost Ten Tribes nor
what history teaches.
For them they consider it enough what they feel in their heart.
For all we know this may be all they need.
Nevertheless there is a Biblical Principle of Collective Responsibility:
We are obliged to identify ourselves with All of Israel and to take
responsibility for our fellow Israelites.
This includes helping them know who they are!
10 'All of you stand today before the LORD your God: your leaders and your
tribes and your elders and your officers, all the men of Israel,
11 your little ones and your
wives, also the stranger who is in
your camp, from the one who cuts your wood to the one who draws your water;
12 that you may enter into covenant with the LORD your God, and into His oath,
which the LORD your God makes with you today,
13 that He may establish you today as a people for Himself, and that He may be
God to you, just as He has spoken to you, and just as He has sworn to your
fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
14 I make this covenant and this oath, not with you alone,
15 but with him who stands here with us today before the LORD our God, as well
as with him who is not here with us today.....
18 so that there may not be among you
man or woman or family or tribe, whose heart turns away today from the LORD our
God, to go and serve the gods of these nations, and that there may not be among
you a root bearing bitterness or wormwood;
19 and so it may not happen, when he hears the words of this curse, that he
blesses himself in his heart, saying, 'I shall have peace, even though I follow
of my heart' as
though the drunkard could be included with the sober?
20 The LORD would not spare him; for then the anger of the LORD and His
jealousy would burn against that man, and every curse that is written in this
book would settle on him, and the LORD would blot out his name from under

The Brit-Am Movement of the Ten Tribes works to spread knowledge as to WHO the
Ten Tribes are because we are obliged to do so and ALSO since we are concerned
for them. We have an obligation to be concerned for them.
All Israelites who share the realization as to who the Ten Tribes are have some
degree of obligation to spread the knowledge or assist those who do.
The Israelites were commanded to become,
A KINGDOM OF PRIESTS, AND AN HOLY NATION
[The word ("cohanim") translated here as PRIESTS can also mean "officials" or
"rulers" but the point is the same].
The emphasis is on the nation as a whole. A Priest or Ruler ministers to others.
The others need to know that they too descend from Israel!

Justice and Judgment
Becoming a Blessing to Others
Bible Learning and an interest in the Temple
Maintenance of Self: Health; No Substance Abuse, etc.

in such studies.
[Despite the above remarks Brit-Am is not a religion nor a religious ministry.
We are not qualified to give religious or personal advice NOR do we want to.]
The Mosaic Faith as a Legitimate Alternative!
Pelagius ("Morgan" ca. 360 -420 c.e.) was a Welshman or Scotchman from the
Pelagius held that salvation could be obtained either through the (Jewish) Law
or through Christianity.
He was considered a heretic then and so he would be today.
Most of us probably disagree with Pelagius.
Nevertheless we have work to do.
Perhaps the Almighty wants us at this time to adopt the attitude of Pelagius for
the sake of all the Tribes of Israel?

The Brit-Am enterprise is a Biblical work.
God willing, they who assist Brit-Am will be blessed.
'It is impossible to rightly govern the
God or the Bible.'
Brit-Am is the "still small voice" that contains the truth.
[1-Kings 19:12] AND AFTER THE EARTHQUAKE A FIRE; BUT THE LORD WAS NOT IN THE
FIRE: AND AFTER THE FIRE A STILL SMALL VOICE.
