Malloy : Edom
There are good reasons to believe that Rome and Germany are
part of Edom.
However, in my opinion, there is no basis in eschatology for
destruction of either of them before the Ezekiel 39 war. Since 35 comes
before 39, I have reason to believe that the destruction of Edom occurs
first. Since the Edomites in general and the Amalikites in particular, were
last seen in the area of Greater Israel, that is were I would expect them
to be today. This area is now dominated by Islam. This idea is buttressed
by the Bible Code which talks about a event called the Atomic Catastrophe,
which will happen in 5765. They, the radical Islamists, have demonstrated a
willingness to attack not only Israel and America but other British Common
Wealth nations (Joseph). If you think that we were upset after 9/11, just

5. Nachmanides: The
Connection Between Law and Land
The connection between the
Law and the Land is best summed up
by Nachmanides (1194-1270). Not everybody
would necessarily agree with
Nachmanides on every point but what he says
does appear to fit all relevant
Biblical passages. The extract below is a
<< AND THE LAND IS DEFILED:
THEREFORE I DO VISIT THE INIQUITY THEREOF UPON
IT, AND THE LAND ITSELF
VOMITETH OUT HER INHABITANTS [Leviticus 18:25].
Scripture is especially
strict concerning sexual offences that if
transgressed cause the Land to be
polluted and vomit the offenders out of
it. Are not sexual offences
pertinent to the physical body rather than to
the land? The secret of the
matter, however, is contained in the verse,
WHEN THE MOST HIGH DIVIDED TO
THE NATIONS THEIR INHERITANCE, WHEN HE
SEPARATED THE SONS OF ADAM, HE SET
THE BOUNDS OF THE PEOPLE ACCORDING TO
THE NUMBER OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL;
FOR THE LORD'S PORTION IS HIS PEOPLE
[Deuteronomy 32:8-9]. The Almighty God
created everything and made the
power of [physical] things below dependent
on [spiritual] forces above
& He distributed to every people and
country its own angel, as it says,
BUT THE PRINCE OF THE KINGDOM OF PERSIA
WITHSTOOD ME [ Daniel 10:13] and
LO, THE PRINCE OF GREECE SHALL COME
[Daniel 10:20]. [Nachmanides here
understands the reference to princesto
mean guardian angels of the nation]
& The Land of Israel, however, is
the inheritance of God and unique to Him.
God did not appoint over it any
angel or other spiritual ruling power. God
gave the land of Israel to His
special people, the seed of His beloved
ones, as it says, YE SHALL BE A
PECULIAR TREASURE UNTO ME ABOVE ALL PEOPLE:
FOR ALL THE EARTH IS MINE
[Exodus 19:5], and it says, SO SHALL YE BE MY
PEOPLE, AND I WILL BE YOUR GOD
[Jeremiah 11:4]. You shall not have any
other higher spiritual beings over
you, whatsoever. God sanctified the
people who dwell in His land (so that
they be dedicated to His Name) with
the sanctity of sexual prohibitions and
numerous commandments. It therefore
says, YE SHALL THEREFORE KEEP ALL MY
STATUTES, AND ALL MY JUDGMENTS, AND DO
THEM: THAT THE LAND, WHITHER I BRING
YOU TO DWELL THEREIN, SPUE YOU NOT OUT
[Leviticus 20:22]. And it says, YE
SHALL INHERIT THEIR LAND, AND I WILL
GIVE IT UNTO YOU TO POSSESS IT, A LAND
THAT FLOWETH WITH MILK AND HONEY: I
AM THE LORD YOUR GOD, WHICH HAVE
SEPARATED YOU FROM OTHER PEOPLE Leviticus
20:24]. God separated us from all
other peoples who have guardian angels
over them. God separated us by giving
us His land and by He being the only
spiritual entity in charge of us
[without any intermediary]. The Land of
Israel, which is the inheritance of
Almighty God, will vomit out those who
pollute it. The Land will not
tolerate the worshippers of idols, or the
committers of sexual
Nachmanides goes on, in the same
vein, bringing verses to
prove that God has a special relationship with the
Land of Israel and in
the Land of Israel it is especially important to
worship ONLY HIM and keep
His commandments. Nachmanides points to the case
of the Samaritans. After
the ten northern tribes were exiled from their
lands the Assyrians settled
pagan nations in their place. These pagans were
attacked by bands of lions.
It was explained to the king of Assyria that
these attacks had come upon
the newcomers because they did not worship the
God of Israel or keep His laws.
<WHEREFORE THEY SPAKE TO THE KING OF
ASSYRIA, SAYING, THE NATIONS WHICH
THOU HAST REMOVED, AND PLACED IN THE
CITIES OF SAMARIA, KNOW NOT THE MANNER
OF THE GOD OF THE LAND: THEREFORE HE
HATH SENT LIONS AMONG THEM, AND,
BEHOLD, THEY SLAY THEM, BECAUSE THEY KNOW
NOT THE MANNER OF THE GOD OF THE
LAND> [2-Kings 17:26].
other verses confirm and expand on these points, e.g. <SO THAT I
AGAIN TO MY FATHER'S HOUSE IN PEACE; THEN SHALL THE LORD BE MY GOD>
[Genesis 28:21]: Brit-Am Commentary: The Lost Ten Tribes were destined to
be exiled and forget the correct worship of God. In the future they will
return, acknowledge the Almighty, and re-settle the Land. Jacob represents
his descendants. When He returns to his spiritual and physical inheritance
(MY FATHER'S HOUSE IN PEACE) then He will once again return to the God of
Not every authority would necessarily agree with
but his explanation does explain the Biblical message taken as a
This means that even if the Lost Ten Tribes do not have to keep the
present they will have to do so in the future in order to return to
This brings us to elucidate several important
Identifying as an Israelite
Many people in the
West are descended from the Lost Ten Tribes
and from Captive Jews. People in
these regions who feel an Hebraic
affinitiy can safely assume that they are
of Israelite descent. Even if
they are not, the fact that they dwell amongst
Lost Israelites and identify
with them will make them part of Israel in the
Last Days (Ezekiel 47:23).
Keeping the Law
Lost Ten Tribes will return and be accepted
anew into the Covenant of Moses
(Malachi 3:22; Yerushalmi, Sanhedrin 10;
Zohar, VaYechi). At present they
have other goals and duties to fulfill.
Technically they are Gentiles and
not obligated by the Law (Jeremiah 3:8,
Yebamot 17). The obligations of the
Lost Ten Tribes under the Law have been
suspended temporarily (Hosea
We are now drawing closer to the End Times and many amongst the Chosen
began to adopt aspects of the Law
in their daily lives. This is
part of the Messianic process and is at
present a voluntary expression of an
inner Israelite identification.
To what degree a non-Jewish Israelite accepts
aspects of this process is
open to individual understanding and
