1. Damon Casale: Signs Given by Isaiah and Future Redemption
RE: Brit-Am Now no. 1565
#4. The Fourteen Aims of Biblical Prophecy
according to Don Isaac Abarbanel
http://britam.org/now2/1565Now.html#The

Regarding the regathering of the lost ten tribes.

First of all, biblical prophecy generally follows a certain stylistic pattern.  The prophet will first talk about certain near-term events, then connect them directly with the goal of history -- the Messianic Age.

A good example is found in Isaiah 1 vs Isaiah 2:1-5.  The prophet first speaks of the social injustices of Israel and then afterwards connects the redemption of Israel with "the end of days."

The book of Isaiah has a specific structure to it, with prophetic utterances interspersed with historical interludes, for the purpose of connecting prophecy to specific historical occurrences during the time of the Assyrian invasion of Israel and Judah.  It was at this time when the northern ten tribes were taken into captivity and then scattered.

There are important prophecies regarding this scattering which explain exactly how the return is to be accomplished.

1) Isaiah 7, especially verses 14-16.  A child named Immanuel was to be born as a sign to King Ahaz that the two nations conspiring against him to make a military coup and put a non-Davidic puppet king on the throne of Judah -- Syria and northern Israel -- would both be themselves destroyed.

2) Isaiah 8, especially verses 1-4.  A second child named Maher-shalal-hash-baz was to be born as yet another sign that this prophesied destruction and subsequent scattering was shortly to come.

3) Many biblical minimalists have commented that Isaiah 40 onward is stylistically different from the preceding chapters.  Therefore, they posit that it was written by a different author hundreds of years after the time of Isaiah.  In actuality, Isaiah 40 onward *does* have stylistic differences and it *was* written by a different author -- one from Isaiah's own family! Isaiah 49:1 identifies this writer:  "The Lord summoned me from the belly; He mentioned my name from my mother's womb."  This is one of the prophesied sons of Isaiah.

4) The duty of this prophesied son is given as follows:  "It is insufficient that you be a servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to restore the ruins of Israel.  I will also make you a light for the nations, so that My salvation may extend to the ends of the earth."  This is a specific reference to the nations that had troubled Israel during her existence: Egypt and Assyria.  (Compare Is. 19:23-25.)  "The earth" is always a geographical reference to the lands in close proximity to Israel.

5)  Obviously, the lost ten tribes weren't regathered during the time of Isaiah, and neither were Egypt and Assyria at peace with Israel and Judah. So the literary intent of this message is that an individual who is known by God from his mother's womb will regather the lost ten tribes as well as make peace with the nations troubling Israel immediately before the Messianic Age begins.

Re  Discussion group

Shalom,

J'aimerais joindre votre groupe de discussion. I would like to join your
discussion group.

Last year, after patient efforts, my parents managed to trace their genealogy (on my mother's side) back to the Merovingian kings and Jewish ancestors (among them a gaon of Pumbedita, Natronai Ben Nehemiah David). The list is quite impressive as it involves a lot of nobility from many ethnic groups and at first it was very hard to believe. But they made no mistakes.

I was born a gentile. Though my parents are not particularly interested in religion, I am a practicing Roman catholic (but I do not consider myself above others) and have felt judeochristian for some years now. I would very much like to know to what extent I could actually be Jewish as well. Perhaps you could help me find the answer. A few things are certain: as a catholic, I do NOT ignore the Torah and the prophets, on the contrary. I also feel sympathy for the State of Israel and an interest in the intellectual, artistic achievements of Jewish people throughout the world. Your website, which I discovered today, offers many fascinating forays into the secret history of the world.

Blessings,

SPN



3. Germany and the Amorites?

From the Germanic-L List:
From: heathensailor <heathensailor@cox.net>
Subject: [Germanic-L] 10th century law codes

Lotte writes, in _Wise One Of The Mountain_,
 
# We may note furthermore, a special set of laws, extant in two tenth-century manuscripts... The code itself does not name the tribe... but directs itself to the 'Franks who live in the country of Amor, who appear as neighbors of the Frisians and the Saxons. The laws are concerned, more than other Germanic codes, with the upkeep of bridges and of sluices, and we may understand that the laws deal with an area which lay open to inundation. The document further offers an impression of a population occupied, above all else, with the raising of domestic animals, such as cows and pigs. #
 
This would be, I gather, 10th century Westphalia. Does anyone have more information on these codes?
 Thanks.
 Rick



Brit-Am Comment:
Note the expression  "Franks who live in the country of Amor". This is similar to the term "Land of Amor" and "Land of the Amorites" find in the Bible and Middle East Literature. The Amorites were a leading Canaanite nation. Other sources indicate the presence of Canaanites in Germany.
Could there be a connection between "country of Amor" and "Land of Amor" or is it just a coincidence?



4. Jennie Schmidt: The Future Elijah Land Development Project?
Dear Mr. Davidiy

I have one small question about this Elijah person that brings the restoration.  Is he a land developer?  ...Because every time I see him in scripture, he is paving roads, and landscaping with specialty trees, and adding waterways...

Look:  (Isaiah 40:3-5) "The voice of one crying in the wilderness:  Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.  Every valley shall be exalted and every mountain and hill brought low; the crooked places shall be made straight and the rough places smooth..."

And this: (Is. 57:14) And one shall say "Heap it up!  Heap it up!  Prepare the way, take the stumbling block out of the way
 of my people."

(Jer.31:21) Set up sign posts, make landmarks, set your heart toward the highway...

(Is. 62:10)" Go through, go through the gates!  Prepare the way for the people:  Build up, Build up the highway!  Take out the stones, lift up a banner for the peoples!"

(Is. 43:19)"I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert..."

(Is. 41:18)"I will open rivers in desolate hights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys; I will plant in the wilderness the cedar and the acacia tree, the myrtle and the oil tree, I will set in the desert the cypress tree and the pine and the box tree together..."

(Is. 35:6)"For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert.  The parched ground shall become a pool, and thirst land springs of water...grass with reeds and rushes...

A highway shall be there, and a road, and it shall be called "The Highway of Holiness.  The unclean shall not pass over it...

(Is. 49:9) "They shall feed along the roads (restaurants?)and their pastures shall be on all the desolate heights (West Bank?)...I will make each of my mountains a road, and my highways shall be elevated..."

(Is. 51:3) "He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord..."

What is your take on all that?

Jennie 


Brit-Am Reply:
This is an interesting set of Biblical verses you have assembled. I am not sure however of your implied association of Elijah with all of them.
In the future there will be climatic and political changes in the land.

cf. Geneaology of the Blessings to Israel
http://www.britam.org/GeneaologyofBlessings.html
The Land Will Be Healed
In Biblical times Manasseh received an inheritance on both the east and west sides of the Jordan. Machir and Gilead dominated the eastern side. Economically it is considered to have possibly been as important as the whole of the West Side of the Jordan.

At that time the climate was different. There were forests and immense grasslands. The land has changed due to climatic change and ecological despoliation perpetrated by foreigners including the Romans, Turks, and Arabs. Destroy trees and vegetation coverage and you will heat up the earth, decrease precipitation and create a desert. With enough will and effort this process could be reversed and the region could be made to flourish and support a great many people in most congenial conditions. It is hinted that indeed that this is what will happen (Ezekiel 16:55, 2-Chronicles 7:14):

[Leviticus 26:42] THEN WILL I REMEMBER MY COVENANT WITH JACOB, AND ALSO MY COVENANT WITH ISAAC, AND ALSO MY COVENANT WITH ABRAHAM WILL I REMEMBER; AND I WILL REMEMBER THE LAND.



5. New Article:
The Lost Ten Tribes Identified and the Relevant Statistics.
An Ongoing Series.


Statistics: Total GDP per Country and the Israelite Peoples Amongst Them.
http://britam.org/stats/GDPall.html
Extract:
Of the first 10 spots, four (USA, UK, France, Canada) are occupied by nations we identify as dominated by Israelites.
Of the spots 11 to 20, five (Netherlands, Australia, Switzerland, Belgium, Sweden) are taken by Israelite nations.
Partly Edomite countries (Japan, Germany, China, Italy, Spain, Mexico) are also in the top 10 and in the second 10 (Argentina, Russia, Austria) after that.
Israelite and Edomite nations occupy most of the top 20 spots.
