Israelite Tribal and Clan
of the Lost Ten Tribes
Attributes in Exile
by Yair Davidiy
They shall worship the Baal (Hosea 2:8, 2:13, 2:16) like
the Celts in Britain and Gaul once did. Baal was a god who died and was
resurrected. They shall mistake Baal for the God of Israel (Hosea
The Predicted Role of the Ten
They shall be called "Notsrim" in Hebrew. This term later came
to be applied to Christianity and from the beginning had religious connotations.
"EPHRAIM COMPASSETH ME ABOUT WITH LIES, AND THE HOUSE OF
ISRAEL WITH DECEIT: BUT JUDAH YET RULETH WITH GOD, AND IS FAITHFUL WITH
[Jeremiah 31:6] FOR THERE SHALL BE A DAY, THAT THE WATCHMEN [Hebrew: Notsrim] UPON
THE MOUNT EPHRAIM SHALL CRY, ARISE YE, AND LET US GO UP TO ZION UNTO THE LORD OUR GOD.
The word translated above as “WATCHMEN” (THE WATCHMEN UPON THE MOUNT EPHRAIM in Jeremiah 31:6) in Hebrew is “Notsrim”. This term in Hebrew came to mean “Christian” and Jeremiah was in fact prophesying that the Lost Ten Tribes in the latter Times would be Christians prior to their return.
In our book "Ephraim" we spoke on this point at length. We may have made a mistake in speaking too bluntly and in mixing known fact with speculation.
We should not have needlessly given cause for offence. Most of our supporters
and many of our friends are Christians. We consider (in line with Maimonides
concerning Christianity and Islam in general) that Christianity is
a tool of Divine Providence through which the Gentiles will become more
with Biblical Truth.
Specifically Christianity is the means by which most of the Lost Ten Tribes
will first become acquainted with their Israelite Identity and its significance.
As such Christianity is our ally and not our adversary. A good portion of
those Christians who support Brit-Am emphasize the Hebrew roots of their religion
while recognizing the paganism that has been adopted by mainstream Christianity.
At all events the point is that the Lost Ten Tribes must be sought
for amongst Christian nations.They are not amongst the Jews, neither are
they muslims, or pagans. They must be sought for amongst those Christian
nations that emphasize Biblical truth. Whether one agrees with Brit-Am or not on religious matters
this claim of ours has Biblical and historical substance and is an
additional powerful proof when impressing "Judah" as to
who the Lost Ten Tribes are and where they are to be found at present.
The Lost Ten Tribes were exiled for
their sins. Their offenses included the worship of the pagan god "baal":
[2 KGS 17:6]
"IN THE NINTH YEAR OF HOSHEA THE KING OF ASSYRIA TOOK SAMARIA, AND CARRIED
ISRAEL AWAY INTO ASSYRIA, AND PLACED THEM IN HALAH AND IN HABOR BY THE RIVER
OF GOZAN, AND IN THE CITIES OF THE MEDES."
[2 KGS 17:7]
<<AND SERVED BAAL>>:
baal worship was one of their distinguishing characteristics. The Israelite "Celts"
in Britain also worshipped the baal as we have noted several times.
"FOR SO IT WAS, THAT THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL HAD SINNED AGAINST
THE LORD THEIR GOD, WHICH HAD BROUGHT THEM UP OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT, FROM
UNDER THE HAND OF PHARAOH KING OF EGYPT, AND HAD FEARED OTHER GODS,"
[2 KGS 17:8]
"AND WALKED IN THE STATUTES OF THE HEATHEN, WHOM THE LORD CAST
OUT FROM BEFORE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, AND OF THE KINGS OF ISRAEL, WHICH
THEY HAD MADE"
.[2 KGS 17:10]
"AND THEY SET THEM UP IMAGES AND GROVES IN EVERY HIGH HILL, AND UNDER EVERY GREEN TREE:"
[2 KGS 17:16]
"AND THEY LEFT ALL THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD THEIR GOD, AND MADE THEM MOLTEN IMAGES,
EVEN TWO CALVES, AND MADE A GROVE, AND WORSHIPPED ALL THE HOST OF HEAVEN,
AND SERVED BAAL."
<<Baal. The worship of fire
is associated with both Baal and Moloch in ancient times. There is the familiar story of
Elijah and the prophets of Baal in
I Kings 18. An idea of the extent of Baal worship is found in Ireland. Abundant traces are preserved to this
day in place names and in dedications
of ancient temples to Baal. The tradition remains at Glendalough, County Wicklow, Ireland, that in
ancient times the heathen priest
used to ascend the fine round stone tower, now restored, and at sunrise called aloud the name of Baal four times,
once from each of the four openings
at the summit of the tower which face the cardinal points of the compass. Baal worship is believed to have
continued until the time of St. Patrick.
There are many remnants of old fire worship and sacrifice of children to Moloch in Scotland. Only a century
ago on an estate in Scotland it was
the practice of peasants on May Day to gather round a fire and throw their children across from one to another through
the fire. Other similar descriptions
come from Devonshire and in Ireland at fires called Beltina, or Baal fires. Beltane is the name of the first
of May in Scotland which even now
commemorates the ancient name of Bel>>
