3. Question on Tribal Standards, Order of Marching in the Wilderness, and Modern Parallels

Greetings Yair,
What are your thoughts regarding the possible ties between Jacob's blessings to his sons in Gen 49 and coat of arms found throughout thw world that contain symbols of those blessings which denote who are of what tribe?
There are  some books as I understand that have researched this and it seems to support scritpure or scripture supports it. It makes sense that each tribe would have taken their blessing and put it into symbols that were then carried on each tribe's standard as they marched through the wilderness and this helped them not only know who they were, but also, when YHWH told them how they were to encamp in a certain order, they were then able to do that.
your thoughts?
Blessings, michelle b.


Brit-Am Answer:
Our book "The Tribes"
 traces the Tribal Standards of each Tribe and shows how throughout history in several cases the particular Tribal Symbolism was maintained amongst descendants of the Tribe.
We also show how the encampment of the Tribes around the Tabernacle and the Order of Marching in the Wilderness parallels historical relationships between different peoples and the present locations of descendants of the Tribes as they relate to each other.
As far as we know "The Tribes" is the only work that presents this information.

4. Scottish-Irish "Mac" in Surnames - Is it Hebrew?
Question: Many Scottish and also Irish surnames begin with "Mc" or "Mac" (MacDonald, McAlpine, etc) meaning "son of". Does this term have Hebrew origins?

Brit-Am Answer:
 We do not know BUT the Welsh parallel is "Ap" or "Map" meaning "son of".  Welsh is P-Celtic whereas Gaelic ( Sotttish and Irish) is "C-Celtic".  Where one has a "c" the other has a "p". Assuming the Welsh to have been the oldest and possibly the original form we have "Map" instead of "Mac".
Now in Semitic languages a "p" is often  switched by a "b", e.g. in Colloquial Arabic
"Shakespeare" will be pronounced "Shakesbeer".
It could conceivably work the other way also, the "b" being replaced by a "p".
In Hebrew "Ab" (sometimes pronounced as "av") means "Father".
"Me-Ab" (or "Mab" in short) would mean "from the father" i.e. "son of". "Mab" in Welsh became pronounced as "Map" and this in Gaelic became "Mac".
Sound complicated?
Nevertheless linguistically we would say that it is very feasible.
Not only that, if you look at other permutations that linguists present as "matter-of-fact" quite obvious our suggestion is relatively simple.
Other people may have made the same suggestion as this in the past.
It looks too obvious not to have been noticed before.

5. Judah and Joseph Returning to the Land
We pointed out in the past that Judah is returning to the Land as a the forerunner and representative of all Israel. Judah in a sense is preparing the way for the rest of the Tribes, as prophesied.
In the future Judah and Joseph will re-unite (Ezekiel 37), "Joseph" (the Ten Tribes) will receive an inheritance alongside Judah. Each tribe will dwell in its own region (Ezekiel 47). Before this happens Ephraim will take possession of territories in Iraq, Syria, Jordan, etc. (Zecharian 10:9-10 Micah 7:14). The Land of Israel in Biblical Terms stretches from the Nile to the Euphrates and includes southeast Turkey, Syria, part of Iraq, Cyprus, Lebanon, Jordan, part of Saudia, the Persian Gulf region (all that oil should belong to Israelites!), and part of Egypt.
Climate changes may take place. Israel may help to ecologically "heal" the Land though it will be mostly the work of the Almighty (2-Chronicles 7:14  Ezekiel chapters 46 to 47).
Before the final re-union many from "Joseph" will attach themselves to Judah around Jerusalem
(see Jeremiah 31:6 and most other places where it refers to a going up to Zion and Jerusalem).
Nevertheless this entity will continue to be referred to as Judah and in Biblical terms is Judah.
We are not at this stage yet.
Anyone who comes now either identifies with Judah or is a guest of Judah.
So too, Jews (of Judah) in the USA and elsewhere though equal citizens with everybody else from a "national-expression" point of view have aspects of being "guests".
They  maybe very welcome and honored guests but they are guests nevertheless.
[Some Jewish citizens of the Diaspore (especially of the USA  today) get slightly offended when other Jews or Gentiles say they are  "guests" of the people they live amongst. The question is somewhat semantic.
At all events they cannot aspire to live in a "Jewish" country while remaining in the USA. [This is despite the USA government being called "ZOG" by Edomite-Canaanite "Identity" nuts.] In the State of Israel they can.

The Lost Ten Tribes in effect ALREADY HAVE countries of their own.
Their future inheritance in the area of Greater Israel is just that, something in the future.
In the meantime Judah is working on the behalf of all Israel and should be supported as much as possible.

On the other hand,
These points from Ezekiel should also be taken into account:

Ezekiel (11:18) hints that first the exiles will return to the Land of Israel and after that they shall put away their idols and keep the Law (11:2). Ezekiel says that Judah has an obligation to help the Lost Ten Tribes return. The complete return of Judah is dependent upon the return of "Samaria" (16:53, 55, 61) meaning the Ten Tribes especially Manasseh. Manasseh today is mainly the USA. God will renew His covenant with Judah and with Israel (16:62).
