 1. Joan Griffith:
Was Tea
Tephi really Tamar daughter of King David?
Re: Brit-Am Now no. 1395
Hi all,

So you don't think Tea Tephi could be the Tamar raped by her brother, both of them being the children of King David?

That is what Herbert Armstrong published, possibly in The U.S. and British Commonwealth in Prophecy, but at the time they did not cite their references in publications. It also could have been in a separate Plain Truth article. They related the geographic spot Ariel of Ireland to Ariel in the Psalms.
It might make sense to marry off a slightly damaged princess/healer/prophetess to a prince who lived far away.

Sometimes our light goes out but is blown again into flame by an encounter with another human being. Each of us owes the deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this inner light.~~Albert Schweitzer

2. Steve Mathe:  Where does Divine providence Figure in the History of Brit-Am?
Brit-Am Wrote:

During his Rabbinical Studies Yair came across sources indicating that there may be something to the belief that the Lost Ten Tribes were to be found amongst Western Peoples. Gradually an overwhelming urge developed to resolve the issue once and for all.
After undertaking an intensive research program on the subject
Yair was convinced that the concept was indeed true one and answered Biblical questions.
There followed many years of research, discussion, and learning on the subject. This resulted in the manuscripts for several books as well as a large quantity of research notes part of which was destined to also be published. With the help of learned Orthodox Jews and Rabbis "The Tribes" was published in 1993.

This work was followed over the years by at least nine other books, magazines, radio interviews and broadcasts, an active e-mail discussion list and a web-site that receives from 1200 to 1500 visits per day.
Brit-Am believes that Descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes are today found amongst Western Nations according to the Bible and Rabbinical Commentary supplemented by historical and related studies. It is in these countries that Israelite Tribes realized their Destined Ancestral Expression.
The USA especially (along with related nations) has an obligation as Israelite Nations to fulfill their destiny. The USA , UK, and their kinfolk are obligated by the Bible to be great nations, uplift humanity, internalize Biblical Consciousness, maintain Biblical values, and look after their own citizens. They should also support the Jews and the State of Israel.

Brit-Am has three main aims:
Research -finding where the Lost Ten Tribes went to.
Recognition -Bringing the Results of our Research to Public attention.
Reconciliation - Working towards the eventual re-unification of Joseph and Judah.
From Steve Mathe:
Perhaps you may want to add a few sentences re how Hashem's guidance, inspiration and revelation figured in all this for you and others that you have perceived on this path.
Brit-Am Reply:
This question touches on matters some of which are of a private nature.
Being born as I was, with the experiences I underwent, the gifts, impairments, weaknesses, and strengths I acquired or was born with, together with the strong intellectual curiosity in certain directions and other factors all came to fruition in the creation of Brit-Am.
Since then we were blessed by others who saw fit to help us just when we needed it.
This help includes financial assistance but it also extends to many other fields such as computer maintenance networking etc.
 In our research work we saw the Hand of Divine Providence on numerous occasions.
The same applies to every other aspect of Brit-Am.
Rabbi Mordecai Machles of Jerusalem is a friend of ours.
Rabbi Machless emphasizes the existence of Divine Providence in the life of everybody. We only have to open our eyes to it. Sometimes (or rather more often than not) we take it for granted.
Rabbi Machles advocates that everybody keep a little notebook by themselves and write in it every day those occasions on which Divine Providence became most noticeable.

Apart from that, there is indeed something specifically chosen about Brit-Am to which our subscribers may well testify as well as us.
Brit-Am in our opinion has a special merit to it.
This is not always as self-evident (event to us) as it perhaps should be.
Nevertheless, we have received insights and research breakthroughs through Divine Providence and have been able to spread the message.

The work is actually quite good and brings up several points of interest. We hope to publish a review of it.]

4. Alethea :   multitude of nations is better translated as  "commonwealth of nations"
Re Brit-Am Now no. 1394

From  Genesis 48:19 The multitude of nations is better translated a "commonwealth of nations" When Jacob crossed his hands to pass the blessing on to Ephraim, he assured the British people of their greatness and even today this is true, the stone, "Jacobs Pillar" was under the coronation chair that all kings and queens of England are crowned upon - Ezekiel 21:27 I will overturn, overturn it and it shall be no more, until He come whose right it is; and I will give it to Him.  First turn Jeremiah brought Scota one of King Zedekiah's daughters of Judah, to be married to King Heremon of Ireland - Second turn when Queen Mary tried to place the entire empire under the church of Rome  - Third turn when King James IV of Scotland moved his throne to England and London became the capital of the British (covenant people) - Manasseh means "forgetful" in the Hebrew and the American people have forgotten their roots - they think they are gentiles but are the lost tribe of Israel.  The British flag is a crossing of Jacobs hands when he passed the blessing to Josephs younger son.  The flag was on the Hong Kong flag, to Canada, South Africa to all British established nations.  Why do you think that this tiny island nation became so powerful - just like this tiny country Israel became powerful. 

5. David Ramdhari: Question about  European "intolerance" for Israel

Hello Yair,
I was pointed to the website by Tim McHyde whose book I purchased.
I was made aware  of the American/British connection from articles by Herbert Armstrong of Worldwide Church.
Recently, my interest has been rekindled by Tim's book.
We now told that the lost tribes disappeared into the British and other European peoples. My question is:
Why, if their ancestry is Israeli, do most of the European countries not support Israel in the UN. They do very well at Israel bashing including people like Goldstone (South African judge and a Jew who "loves Israel"). Have they forgotten their roots?

Brit-Am Reply:
Goldstone knows he is Jewish and claims he is a Zionist yet he is responsible for a biased report that makes false and disproportionate claims against Israel.
He puts ammunition in the hands of our enemies.
There are respectable Jews in Israel who backed the Oslo Accords (1993) that armed the Palestinians even though it was obvious in advance that these arms were to be directed against Jews. The list of similar betrayals is a long one.
If Jews are this bad what can one expect from descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes most of whom are not yet conscious of their Israelite ancestry?

Despite all this one will still find that those few non-Jews that do sympathize with the State of Israel to some degree or other belong to ethnic groups that our research indicates have a substantial degree of Hebrew Origin.

6. Poem: Brit-Am Task and Appeal

does what it can
To reveal the news
That the Bible describes
The Certain Hebrew Source
Of  Several Western Tribes
[They are Brothers to Jews.]
Whom God did Choose
To run the Course
Of Justice and right
Against evil to fight
To help mankind.
In different places
Our Research does find
Strong Bible truths
Numerous Linguistic Traces
and Historical Proofs
Many Legendary tales
And National traits
A Test that never fails
To show the fates
of Israelites who were Lost
As the Bible Said
They would pay the Cost
of losing their head
and going away
Being lead astray
From the path
of the Bible
Incurring the wrath
Of our Heavenly Father
and Heritage Tribal.
They will come back
And beat the foe
When they know
The right track.

If you agree
with what we are.
And wish for more
Brit-Am is on par
With the best
We do our chore
As you can see
We meet the test.
Serve the country
Like you and me
Help us now
Pay your fee
Let us show you how
We may together
Remove the tether
And move ahead.
Send us a gift
For what you have read
Give us a lift
Or buy a book
Let us off the hook.
Brit-Am is true
God be with you.

7. Proverbs 5 (New King James Version)

 1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom;
      Lend your ear to my understanding,
       2 That you may preserve discretion,
      And your lips may keep knowledge.
       3 For the lips of an immoral woman drip honey,
      And her mouth is smoother than oil;
       4 But in the end she is bitter as wormwood,
      Sharp as a two-edged sword.
       5 Her feet go down to death,
      Her steps lay hold of hell.[a]
       6 Lest you ponder her path of life?
      Her ways are unstable;
      You do not know them.
       7 Therefore hear me now, my children,
      And do not depart from the words of my mouth.
       8 Remove your way far from her,
      And do not go near the door of her house,
       9 Lest you give your honor to others,
      And your years to the cruel one;
       10 Lest aliens be filled with your wealth,
      And your labors go to the house of a foreigner;
       11 And you mourn at last,
      When your flesh and your body are consumed,
       12 And say:

      ? How I have hated instruction,
      And my heart despised correction!
       13 I have not obeyed the voice of my teachers,
      Nor inclined my ear to those who instructed me!
       14 I was on the verge of total ruin,
      In the midst of the assembly and congregation.?
       15 Drink water from your own cistern,
      And running water from your own well.
       16 Should your fountains be dispersed abroad,
      Streams of water in the streets?
       17 Let them be only your own,
      And not for strangers with you.
       18 Let your fountain be blessed,
      And rejoice with the wife of your youth.
       19 As a loving deer and a graceful doe,
      Let her breasts satisfy you at all times;
      And always be enraptured with her love.
       20 For why should you, my son, be enraptured by an immoral woman,
      And be embraced in the arms of a seductress?
       21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD,
      And He ponders all his paths.
       22 His own iniquities entrap the wicked man,
      And he is caught in the cords of his sin.
       23 He shall die for lack of instruction,
      And in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
