2. Message from Gavin Finley
Dear Yair and friends at britam,
It was wonderful to meet Yair in Jerusalem this past October. I count it a
privilege to have a part in the research and the publishing abroad of this vital
information concerning the lost ten tribes of Israel. I believe this important
history will promote understanding even as it calls us to personal
responsibility in the righteousness and mercy of Hashem. This knowledge and
understanding will also save us from much grief. And why? Because Lost Israel
in their amnesia and sin-sick state is wont to act out politically in jealous
anger against the Israel. Western nations tend to react to events on the carnal
side of their nature.
The discerning of lost Israel in the west and overflowing into the nations as a
Light to the gentiles is an important revelation of the wonder of Israel's
eventual restoration. I believe this will help awaken those who are called to
YHVH-God in the amnesic west and that this holy calling will come in the
righteous and proper way. Lost Israel needs to know of their end time
responsibility of witness before the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Because
His is the Kingdom to which they are called. For them there is no other.
Israel is still the big picture in Bible prophecy. She has not been "replaced".
Nor has she been quietly "put aside" as we see in our current evangelical "dispensationalism".
Rather, the Holy Scriptures declare to us that Israel will be fully and totally
Moses proclaimed to Israel that as a covenant people they were to be "a kingdom
of priests and a holy nation". (Ex. 19:6) The way this will happen is outlined
by Jeremiah as he prophesies concerning the New Covenant. (Jer. 31:31). Israel
will be restored as a nation. And all 12 jewels will be found. The prophet
Malachi brings to us the very words of the God of Israel concerning the matter.
"And they shall be mine", says the Lord of Hosts,
"In that Day when make up My jewels.
And I will spare them
as a man spares his own son who serves him."

may be rightly looked upon as the greatest collective achievement of the Jewish
people in the history of the Diaspora. There is, however, a non-Jewish element
hidden in the Restoration of Israel. The ideal of the Jewish people has in fact
for centuries been shared, cherished and pursued by large sections of the
nations amidst whom Jews have lived. Among them, the British people holds the
outstanding place. Nowhere more than in Britain has the idea of the Restoration
of the Jews been developed into a doctrine and become the object of a movement
extending over more than three centuries. Only in Britain the leading spokesmen
of many, generations have been inspired by the vision of a revived Israel. Only
there the creation of a Jewish National Home has been a serious and almost
continuous political issue which was finally translated into reality.
