1. Andy: Brit-Am Should be More Open to Eastern Peoples!
As for your focus on Western peoples, without being a great student of
history, I agree with most of your philosophy on Israel in the Western
nations. But the Torah says that they would be scattered unto the four
winds of the earth. Hosea speaks of the utter lostness of the northern
tribes. Thus, you can't discount the possibility that they can be hailing
from anywhere. In my opinion, you should not have been so discouraging to
your fans like the one from India that wrote in the other day.
All the best,
You have a point. In the past two of those amongst the best supporters we ever had were a man from Jamaica and a lady from India.
Both seem, at least for the present, to have drifted away.
They came because they felt that Divine Providence had directed them to do so.
They helped and they left?
We also read in the Bible about Jethro who gave valuable advice to Moses concerning the Rulership of Israel. The advice of Jethro was incorporated in Scripture and given the status of Law
as if issuing from the Almighty Himself!!!
Jethro was not a Israelite.
He was a Midianite and traditionally the Midianites were considered to have been a darkish people who had intermarried with Cush.
That may explain why the Midianites wife of Moses was described as a Cushitess!
The Black Woman
The advice of Jethro is related in the Book of Exodus (Shemot) and was read out in Synagogues around the world on Shabat in the Weekly Torah Portion a few days ago.
14 So when Moses' father-in-law saw all that he did for the people, he said, 'What is this thing that you are doing for the people? Why do you alone sit, and all the people stand before you from morning until evening?'
15 And Moses said to his father-in-law, 'Because the people come to me to inquire of God. 16 When they have a difficulty, they come to me, and I judge between one and another; and I make known the statutes of God and His laws.'
17 So Moses' father-in-law said to him, 'The thing that you do is not good. 18 Both you and these people who are with you will surely wear yourselves out. For this thing is too much for you; you are not able to perform it by yourself. 19 Listen now to my voice; I will give you counsel, and God will be with you: Stand before God for the people, so that you may bring the difficulties to God. 20 And you shall teach them the statutes and the laws, and show them the way in which they must walk and the work they must do. 21 Moreover you shall select from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens. 22 And let them judge the people at all times. Then it will be that every great matter they shall bring to you, but every small matter they themselves shall judge. So it will be easier for you, for they will bear the burden with you. 23 If you do this thing, and God so commands you, then you will be able to endure, and all this people will also go to their place in peace.'
24 So Moses heeded the voice of his father-in-law and did all that he had said. 25 And Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads over the people: rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens. 26 So they judged the people at all times; the hard cases they brought to Moses, but they judged every small case themselves.
27 Then Moses let his father-in-law depart, and he went his way to his own land.
Note Jethro left but later returned. His descendants participated with the Israelites in conquering the Land.
Some of their according to tradition became great Sages. Most of them were taken into Exile with the Ten Tribes by the Assyrians.
A portion of them according to Jewish Tradition were to be found alongside others from the Ten Tribes in Britain and Ireland.
They will return with the Ten Tribes in the End Times to the Land of Israel.
2. New Feature.
The DAILY PROOF:
The Ten Tribes in the West.
The Prophet Hosea speaks of Ephraim in the End Times as being found primarily in the West.
The Almighty says that Ephraim will not be destroyed (Hosea 11:9). The Exiles in the West will gather together to return (Hosea 11:1); The exiles who had initially been taken to Egypt and Assyria will return (Hosea 11:11). Though Ephraim will have adopted a false religion, Judah will remain faithful to the Faith of the Forefathers (Hosea 11:12). Ephraim will be like an eastwind which means a wind blowing from the east to the west (Hosea 12:1). This is a mistake. It is a turning away from the source.
One of the places Isaiah lists as those were the Ten Tribes were take to is the Isles of the Sea meaning in Hebrew those of the West (Isaiah 11:11).
Isaiah speaks of the Exiles of Israel being located in the West (Isaiah 24:14) and in the Isles of the Sea (Isaiah 24:15).

stages: First it is ridiculed.|
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
