1. Craig Blackwood: US Founding Father Believed in the Almighty
From: Craig Blackwood <cablack@westnet.com.au>
Were America's Founding Fathers Freemasons,
 Atheists and Deists? - Worldview Tube

Shalom Yair...
 
Many Atheists and Conspirationists would have us believe that the American founding fathers were Atheists, Deists and Masons...but these were a very small minority.  Much of the Biblical symbols in the American Symbols are attributed to Masonic Symbols but according to this article...not.

2. Dr Richard Griffith: George Washington was a Believer
From: rgriff92437@aol.com
Subject: Stirring Lecture on Washington's God
To: britam@netvision.net.il

Author Robert Novak's stirring lecture on Washington's God is available at the following website and should be of interest to
BritAm especially given Washington's kissing of Genesis 49 at his inauguration:

4. "Ephraimites" Ask, "Why is Judah Apathetic to Joseph Returning?"
Over the last couple of weeks we have had the merit of meeting with several "Ephraimites" i.e. Christians who believe they descend from Lost Ten Tribes.
A recurring question we encounter goes along the following lines (with variations):
"Why are the Jews not welcoming the return of Joseph?
Jews pray three times a day for the return of the Exiles. Why then do they not facilitate the Exiles of Joseph returning?"

In Reply:
Ephraimites should also ask themselves the same question.
Why do they not show they take the matter seriously by supporting Brit-Am more than they at present do?
Brit-Am works to prepare both Joseph and Judah for ultimate reconciliation.
This should be the first step.
Some Ephraimites do help Brit-Am but most do not. Many seem not interested.
Why is that?

From the point of view of Judah:
Praying for the return of the exiles is by most Jews understood to apply to the Jews of Judah.
The concept of the Lost Tribes is indeed found in the Literature and many of the most revered authorities referred to it BUT it is not something encountered on a day to day basis.
Judaism today emphasizes what the daily duties of a Jew should be.
Matters such as building the Temple, ingathering the Ten Tribes etc may be important but they are not simple straight-forward subjects and little attention is paid to them by most people.
Similarly most Bible-believers amongst Joseph are not so interested in the Ten Tribes.

From the point of view of reality:
At present unless a "Joe" converts to Judaism he remains a "Joe". People are human.
They have human needs and problems.
No-one really wants to unnecessarily make life more complicated than it already is.
Judah is not built to accept Joseph at present and neither is Joseph able to accommodate Judah.
The claims that "Ephraimites" have to be Lost Israelites are unknown on the whole to Judah.
These claims, truths, and beliefs are best presented in a Brit-Am framework.
Simple beliefs or "gut feelings" or earnest convictions however compelling and whatever good impression they may make at the immediate level are not enough.
Facts and valid explanations are also required.

Ephraimites who are really serious will support Brit-Am.

An initial return to areas around the periphery of the Land of Israel should also be considered as indicated by the Prophets, e.g. Micah 7:14 and Zechariah 10:10.

[Micah 7:14] FEED THY PEOPLE WITH THY ROD, THE FLOCK OF THINE HERITAGE, WHICH DWELL SOLITARILY IN THE WOOD, IN THE MIDST OF CARMEL: LET THEM FEED IN BASHAN AND GILEAD, AS IN THE DAYS OF OLD.
##BASHAN AND GILEAD##: Mean the present-day regions of Syria and Jordan. Zechariah 10;10 says that Ephraim will possess Lebanon and Gilead meaning Lebanon and Syria! These areas actually also include parts of Turkey and Iraq.

See also our article on the USA in Iraq based on Micah 7:12:
"Ephraim Comes Back! The USA in Iraq: Has the Return of the Lost Ten Tribes Began?"
http://britam.org/USAMatsor.html


[Zechariah 10:10] I WILL BRING THEM AGAIN ALSO OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT, AND GATHER THEM OUT OF ASSYRIA; AND I WILL BRING THEM INTO THE LAND OF GILEAD AND LEBANON; AND PLACE SHALL NOT BE FOUND FOR THEM. 
 Zechariah is referring to "Ephraim" here as shown by the previous verses e.g. Zechariah 10:7
"AND THEY OF EPHRAIM SHALL BE LIKE A MIGHTY MAN"        
Egypt and Assyria could apply to areas in Europe, as we have explained elsewhere. The exiles of Israel will leave these areas.
Gilead means Syria and Lebanon means Lebanon. These areas will be re-populated by the Lost Ten Tribes represented by "Ephraim".
