SYNOPSIS OF IDENTITY POINTS
The First Five Books of the Bible
Genesis: THE END OF THE BEGINNING
Our studies of Genesis revealed to us
the following: Mankind was
told to be fruitful and multiply and conquer the earth. Adam and Eve sinned
and all of humanity was punished. A Deluge covered the earth from which
only Noah and his family survived. All peoples alive today are descended
from the three sons of Noah. Abraham was descended from Shem the son of
Noah. God chose Abraham to be the instrument of His Will, to be blessed and
to bring a blessing upon all peoples of the earth (12:2-3, 18:18-19, 22:18
cf. 24:4). Abraham was promised that his seed would be extremely numerous
(15:5, 22:17). He was assured that he would inherit the Land of Canaan
(15:7, 17:8) from the Nile to the Euphrates (15:8). Nations and Kings would
emerge from Abraham (17:6). Sarah the wife of Abraham was blessed that she
would become a mother of nations and "kings of peoples" would come from her
(17:16, 21): This means the monarchs of several nations ruling at one and
the same time, such as the monarchs of Western European countries do now.
Only Isaac the son of Abraham would inherit the covenant of Abraham (17:19,
21:12). One of the purposes of the promises was that through the blessings
they would be enabled to do justice and judgment (18:19). After Abraham was
tested with the "binding" (Akeda) of Isaac everything about the blessings
became unconditional (22:16) apart from inheriting the land that remained
contingent upon Monotheism and obedience. Abraham was told that his seed
would inherit the "gate of his enemies" (22:17 cf. 24:60). Isaac married
Rebecca who it was predicted would become the mother of "thousands of ten
thousands" (24:60) and that her seed would possess "the gate of those who
hate them" (24:60). These prophecies meant that the promised seed would
possess international thoroughfares and vantage points of strategic
importance as the USA and Britain (and only they) have done and still do.
Isaac was given all the Land of Canaan (26:3). Isaac was to be the ancestor
of innumerable descendants through whom all the world would be blessed
Isaac fathered twins, Esau and Jacob (25:24). Esau was the older.
Rebecca had been told that the elder would serve the younger (25:23). Esau
sold his birthright to Jacob (25:33). Jacob received the blessing of the
firstborn from his father Isaac (27:27). Jacob was promised a healthy
climate, agricultural plenty and mineral riches (27:28 cf. the blessing to
Joseph 49:25) and that he would be the master of his brethren and rule over
nations (27:29). Jacob was to receive the blessings of Abraham and to
inherit the Land (28:4, 35:12). His seed was to spread all over the earth
(28:14). Jacob married Leah and Rachel (29:30). His firstborn was Reuben
(29:32), then came Simeon (29:33) and Levi (29:34), then Judah (29:35).
Rachel gave her handmaiden, Bilhah, to Jacob who begat Dan (30:6) and
Naphtali (30:8). Zilpah the handmaiden of Leah was the mother of Gad
(30:11) and Asher (30:13). Reuben found mandrakes (30:14) and gave them to
Leah who hired the attentions of her husband Jacob and bore Issachar
(30:18) and after that Zebulon (30:20). Rachel bore Joseph (30:24) who is
the vanquisher of Edom meaning Germany or Europe in general. Only Britain
and the USA have proved that they are capable of fulfilling the task of
Joseph. Jacob fled from Laban and headed towards the Land of Canaan. An
angel wrestled with Jacob (32:24) whom he overcame and received the name
"Israel" (32:28). Jacob was promised that a nation and a company of nations
and kings would come from him (35:11). Benjamin was born and Rachel died
(35:18). Israel (i.e. Jacob) gave his son Joseph a coat of many colors and
this made his brothers jealous (37:3). Joseph was sold into Egypt where he
became the virtual ruler of the land and saved the house of his father from
famine. He also saved the Land of Egypt and other lands. Judah through
Tamar begat Pharez (38:29) and Zarah (38:30). Joseph married Asenath
daughter of Potiphera priest of On (41:50) and begat Manasseh (41:51) whose
name means "delegated responsible representation" such as that of the USA.
The second son of Joseph was Ephraim (41:52) whose name implies an
aristocratic system such as that found in Britain. Joseph was reconciled to
his brothers who went down to Egypt with all their families. The sons and
grandsons of Israel numbered seventy souls. The names of the sons and
grandsons (ch.46) are similar to the names of descendants of Israelite
Tribes who populated much of Western Europe. Jewish tradition and Arab
legends trace the Lost Ten Tribes to Western Europe.
Before he died Jacob blessed Joseph (48:3) and made Ephraim and
Manasseh full-fledged tribes in their own right (48:5-6). Ephraim and
Manasseh would became a multitude in the midst of the earth and the name of
Jacob be called upon them and the name of his fathers Abraham and Isaac
(48:16). This means primarily that the essence of the forefathers would be
expressed through the sons of Joseph. It has a secondary meaning that their
very names would recall the forefathers. Abraham was known as "the Hebrew"
(14:13) and the early inhabitants of Britain called themselves and were
termed by others "Iberi" meaning "Hebrews". Names given to the Scythians
and to the Saxons who settled England were derived from the name Isaac. The
name "Jacob" is recalled in the Union Jack of Britain meaning the Uniting
of Jacob, and in the nickname "Yanki" which is short for Jacob.
Ephraim would be greater than Manasseh. Ephraim would become a
multitude of nations (48:19) "malo hagoim" and rule over other peoples.
Manasseh would also become great after Ephraim (48:19). Jacob blessed all
of his sons concerning their destiny in the Latter Times (49:1). Reuben
(France) would be unstable and attempt to conquer the Holy Land. Simeon and
Levi would be policemen (49:5) like the Irish in America. Judah would keep
the law and teach his brethren who would acknowledge the righteousness of
Judah (49:8). Judah would be like an old lion. Judah (unlike the other
tribes) would always be recognizable as descended from Israel. Zebulon
would dwell on the seashores (49:13) as the Dutch descendants of the
Sabalingoi ("People of Zebulon") do. Issachar would be neutral and
landlocked in a mountainous area (49:14) like the Swiss. Dan would be a
judge of his people (49:16). Gad would become a troop of "Goths" (49:19)
who settled in Sweden. Asher would eat dainties and enjoy riches (49:2).
Naphtali was to become like a hind in Scandinavia (49:21). Joseph would
establish overseas colonies (49:22) and would help Judah re-settle the
land. Joseph would have his presence felt in many oceans. Joseph would be
blessed with good climate, agricultural plenty and mineral wealth (49:25).
Joseph would dwell in separate areas from his brothers (49:26) like the
North Americans, British, Australians, New Zealanders, and South Africans
do. Benjamin is likened unto a wolf (49:27) which was a symbol of the
Normans who conquered England. The son of Manasseh was Machir (50:23) whose
name in Hebrew embodies the concept of Capitalism. The name Machir evolved
into the name of America. The symbol of the USA is a pyramid which was a
symbol of Joseph.
The blessings given unto the forefather had to be fulfilled in the
Last Days. The only possible peoples who fulfill all the criteria mentioned
in the Bible are the nations of Western Europe alongside Britain and her
daughters and the USA.
Identity Characteristics From the Book of Numbers
Tribal Standards were set up around
the Tabernacle (2:2). These
standards in most cases depicted symbols similar to those still present on
the national coats-of-arms of nations in which the relevant tribe is
prevalent. The dominant colors of the Tabernacle and of the Israelite
Nation were red, white, and blue. These three colors or at least two of
them are still found on the flags of most Israelite-descended nations.
Numbers (chapter two) describes the camping arrangements and Order of
March. The geographical arrangement of the encampment is repeated at the
present time in the way that Israelite nations are placed in regard to each
other. The Order of March required that the Tribes move together in groups
of three. These groupings had historical significance regarding traditional
alliances and associations of the peoples concerned. Yair (32:41) and the
events around him were repeated in Irish mythology.
The Prophesies of Balaam and the Identity of Israel
We learned from the Prophesies of Balaam
the following facts that
help us confirm our beliefs concerning the identification of Israel in the
The two halves of Israel (headed by Judah and Joseph) need to be
united. Division is a curse (23:7). They will exist separately from other
nations (23:9). They will be so numerous that they cannot be counted
(23:10). The blessings to Israel were unconditional (23:19, 23:20). They
are likened unto a unicorn (23:22 24:8), and a lion (23:24). They will
dwell in good fertile areas (24:6). Their descendants will be found in many
waters (24:7), i.e. abiding by different Seas and Oceans. They will be very
powerful (24:7), becoming a universal militarily might and a world power
(24:8). Manasseh (symbolized by a unicorn) will become the most powerful
tribe and the fullest expression of Israelite might (24:8). The Scottish
coat-of-arms depicts two unicorns. Descendants of Manasseh through Scotsmen
and Scots-Irish dominate the USA. The lion and unicorn representing Israel
in the last days are recalled in juxtaposition (24:9) and they are
represented on the British coat-of-arms. Israel shall conquer Edom (24:18)
meaning Germany and Europe. In the Last Days there will be a Great
Confrontation amongst all the major powers of the earth.
More Deuteronomy Characteristics of Israel
The Hebrews were divided into administrative
groups of tens,
fifties, hundreds, and thousands (1:15) such as practiced by the
Anglo-Saxons. The principle of equality before the law was enjoined upon
them (1;17). The French and American revolutions were fought over this
principle. The conquest of the land of the Amorites (1:2) lead to
Israelites being referred to as "Amurru" by strangers and this term was
also applied to the Cimmerians from whom many of the Celts descend; Yair
(3:14) and the Iari who formed a powerful entity in the land of Israel are
later traced to Ireland and Scotland. The Israelites were warned not to
adopt pagan customs of the peoples around them (12:30). If they did, they
would be exiled. The Ten Tribes indeed did practise idolatry and were
exiled. Idolatrous customs described in the Bible remained with them in
their places of exile and help identify them. The Israelites would lend to
other nations and not borrow (15:6 28:12) [but see our reservations on
this matter]. "Arami" could be used as another name for Israel (26:5) and
Arami according to Pliny was the original name applied to the Scythian
Sacae from whom the Anglo-Saxons and kin derive. Each Tribe had its own
peculiar uniqueness (29:10). Judah was known for keeping the law and
Northern Israel with Joseph for social justice. If they did not keep the
Law they would ultimately be cast into "another land" (29:28) meaning "The
New World" (America) after it would be discovered by Europeans and given
that title. The seventy clans of Israel are juxtaposed to the seventy
nations of the earth (32:8).
Regarding the identity of the Lost Ten Tribes the Blessing of
Moses (Deuteronomy chapter 33) tells us that Joseph will be blessed with
agricultural plenty and mineral resources (33:15-16). He will dwell in
regions that are physically separated from the other Israelites (33:16).
Joseph is likened unto a young bull and to a unicorn (33:17). Joseph will
defeat other peoples all over the world until the ends of the world. The
Midrash tells us that in the Latter Times Annointed Leaders will arise from
Menasseh, Ephraim, and Judah, along with the coming of Elijah.
Issachar will call other nations to
the mountain for "sacrifices of
righteousness" (33:19) just like mountainous Switzerland is an
international place for gatherings and good purposes such as peace talks,
the Geneva Conference, organizations like the Red Cross and so on.
Zebulon will feed on the abundance of
the seas (33;19) just like Holland
does and also find treasures in the sand like the Dutch-descended Boers of
South Africa with their diamonds do.
Gad will be noted for the symbol a lion
like that of Sweden and the
characteristic use of an ax-like weapon (33:20) such as that which a branch
of the Goths were noted for.
Dan will be a young lion leaping from
Bashan (33:22) which became another
name from Scandinavia. The Danes represent that branch of Dan that went to
Scandinavia and their symbol is a lion.
Asher will dip his foot in oil (33:24)
which can mean petroleum and the
North Sea petrol fields link areas associated with Asher.
All the peoples of Israel on the whole
will be militarily powerful (33:27
33:29), enjoy relative security, agricultural bounty and healthy climates
These promised blessings are in the
Bible. They are there in black
and white. Most of them are quite clear even in simple English translation.
The niceties of the Hebrew language and the oral traditions of the sages
together with results of historical research further enhance the directness
and forcefulness of the message. The Lost Ten Tribes of Israel are amongst
the English-speaking peoples and related nations of Europe. The USA with
Britain and her daughters embody the descendants of Joseph. In light of
these researches no other explanation can be honestly proposed. For
whatever reasons one may or may not be pleased with these results but they
have to faced up to. Whatever conclusions one should draw from what the
Bible is telling us needs to be discussed. Before discussion can begin the
message should be spread and the word of truth internalized.
