1. Discussion: Who is A NATION AND A COMPANY OF NATIONS?

Re: Bro Bunch, Brit-Am Now #1381
#3. Bro Bunch: The USA is a company of states
http://www.britam.org/now/1381Now.html#Bro

Hi Yair, I just wanted to offer my two cents on what Bro Bunch wrote in Brit-Am Now #1381. He suggested the nation and company of nations could refer to the Jewish State of Israel and the nations of the lost tribes, respectively. This cannot be right, as this blessing was part of Jacob's birthright passed from Abraham to Isaac to him. He in turn passed it to Joseph, to Manasseh and Ephraim, respectively. They alone received the birthright and therefore blessing to receive the nation and company of nations. The other tribes received the blessings of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to a lesser degree. None of them were promised a nation, although several did receive them, especially Reuben, Judah, Dan, and Benjamin. Biblically speaking, however, it is unsustainable to say anyone except Ephraim and Manasseh were recipients of the nation and multitude of nations.

Brit-Am Reply:
In replying I would request you and everybody else to always quote the relevant Biblical Verses no matter how well known you assume them to be.

There seems to have been a misunderstanding.
Bro Bunch before giving his own interpretation quoted the Brit-Am one.
[If you read what was written on the URL from our web-site (instead of the e-mail) the distinction between what Bro was quoting and what he actually said would have appeared much clearer.]
Brit-Am suggested that the expression
A NATION AND A COMPANY OF NATIONS (Genesis 35:11) referred to
#the Jewish State of Israel and the nations of the lost tribes#.
Bro Bunch suggested it applied to the USA (a Company of Nations) and the State of Israel.

Genesis 35:11
The verses
[Genesis 35:9] AND GOD APPEARED UNTO JACOB AGAIN, WHEN HE CAME OUT OF PADANARAM, AND BLESSED HIM.                    
 
[Genesis 35:10] AND GOD SAID UNTO HIM, THY NAME IS JACOB: THY NAME SHALL NOT BE CALLED ANY MORE JACOB, BUT ISRAEL SHALL BE THY NAME: AND HE CALLED HIS NAME ISRAEL.
Jacob became Israel. God confirmed the blessing Jacob had forced the guardian angel of Esau to give him.

[Genesis 35:11] AND GOD SAID UNTO HIM, I AM GOD ALMIGHTY: BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY; A NATION AND A COMPANY OF NATIONS SHALL BE OF THEE, AND KINGS SHALL COME OUT OF THY LOINS

[Genesis 35:12] AND THE LAND WHICH I GAVE ABRAHAM AND ISAAC, TO THEE I WILL GIVE IT, AND TO THY SEED AFTER THEE WILL I GIVE THE LAND. 

This is how we explained the passage in our Brit-Am Commentary:
http://britam.org/Genesis/Gen32to36VaYishlach.html
BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY: we should try and have as many children as we can.
A NATION: The USA?
AND A COMPANY OF NATIONS the British Commonwealth and other Israelite nations?
AND/OR
A NATION = The Jews.
 AND A COMPANY OF NATIONS the Lost Ten Tribes? This latter explanation is the most reasonable. The NATION means the Jews and the COMPANY OF NATIONS means the Lost Ten Tribes.

Your assertion needs to be proven from Biblical Verses in order for us to relate to it in.



2. Question on British Flag and the Term Caucasian Race
From: Richard
Hello,
  I am enjoying reading your paper on Ephraim and Mannaseh.... http://www.britam.org/USAManasseh.html#Tribal
I have been studying about this for a few years now and find it very eye opening.
 
  I read in another publication where there is significance to Jacob "crossing" his hands over the two boys. They say this is shown in the British Flag where the 'X' or 'cross' is through the center of the flag. It sounds very plausible due to the scriptural part where it says: Genesis 48:14 And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Ephraim's head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh's head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the firstborn.
  Jacob would have, out of necessity, had to cross his arms over the boys heads.
 
Also, I am wondering if you have any information on the term "Caucasian"?  We see and hear this term many times throughout our lives and it is rare that anyone can give an explaination as to why we are considered "Caucasian". I have read that it has something to do with the dispersed tribes of Israel crossing the Caucasian Mountains into souther Russia and then into the Germanic lands as we know them today.
 
Thank you so very much for all your information. I believe that God is opening the eyes of His people in these last days.
Blessings, Richard

Brit-Am Reply:
Shalom,
There is no connection between the terms "Caucasian" and the Lost Ten Tribes.
19th century and early 20th century scientists seem to have assumed that the Indo-European peoples emerged from the Caucasian area.
These were considered classically "white".
Hence the term Caucasian being applied to a white person.
See the Wikipedia article
Caucasian race
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caucasian_race
Quote:
#The concept of a Caucasian race or Varietas Caucasia was developed around 1800 by Johann Friedrich Blumenbach, a German scientist and classical anthropologist.[6][6] Blumenbach named it after the peoples of the Caucasus (from the Caucasus region), whom he considered to be the archetype for the grouping.[7] He based his classification of the Caucasian race primarily on craniology.[8] Blumenbach wrote:

#"Caucasian variety - I have taken the name of this variety from Mount Caucasus, both because its neighborhood, and especially its southern slope, produces the most beautiful race of men, I mean the Georgian; and because all physiological reasons converge to this, that in that region, if anywhere, it seems we ought with the greatest probability to place the autochthones (birth place) of mankind."[9]
