Anglo-Israelism, Ephraimitism, Two-House Movement... & British Israelism explained 2

The belief in the persistence of the Ten Tribes resembles the Shiite faith in the occluded Twelfth Imam or the Czech national story of the Hussite warriors hidden in Mt. Blánik. Just as the Hussites are said to stand ready to aid the Czech people in their time of need, and the Twelfth Imam is to emerge to bring salvation as Mahdi, the Ten Tribes were imagined to have a large army ready to defend the Jews. They offered the consolations of strength in the face of loss, eventual triumph following defeat, succor amid distress. 

Attica comprised 139 political districts (demes), assigned variously to the recognized ten tribes; regardless of how far from the walled urban center a deme might be, its registered members were Athenian. Is the number 10 of the Athenian tribes taken after the one of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel? After all the Spartans were Israelites.

Notice that the tribe of Joseph received double blessings through Ephraim and Manasseh.  Also, be aware that Israel (Jacob) had to cross his arms to lay his right hand on Ephraim. Typically, there is a cross on the flags of the commonwealths' of Great Britain: Great Britain, England, Ireland, Scotland, Australia & New Zealand.

Moses performed miracles with his rod thatnks to the power of God. After this rod is said that the druids had wands from which it is believed to have come magic wands. Magic is no other thing but an imitation of God's power. Even the Gypsy's cachavas could have the same origin because they're not meant to be a cane for the patriarch or Gypsy leader.

Etymologists, philologists, archaeologists, and historians, yes, and the Bible itself, state that there is a tripartate division of the human race, Mongoloid (Japheth), Caucasoid (Shem), Negroid (Ham); and, from these three, sub races developed.

“Bruce’s letter preserves an intriguing allusion to the origin of the Scots and throws light on one of history’s most fascinating mysteries . . . what was the fate of the so-called “Ten Lost Tribes of Israel.”“Robert Bruce and his Knights . . . date their beginnings as a nation one thousand two hundred years after the outgoing (Exodus – 1453 B.C.) of the ‘people of Israel.’ Thus they claim descent from the Israelites in Egypt.”

The U.S.A. in Modern Hebrew is called "Artsot-HaBRIT" meaning literally "Lands of the Covenant". "Yank" is a nickname for Americans. Yankmeans Jacob.

Who controlled the gates such as the Suez Canal, Panama Canal, Straight of Gibraltar, Falkland Islands, Hong Kong, Khyber Pass, Malta, Singapore, and many, many other areas?

One important link is the term Scythians (Celts); the people who dwell in booths.

Britain fought a war to retain the Falkland Islands in 1982 and Hong Kong continued, with tacit Chinese agreement, as a British dependency until 1997.

Do Oktober Fest, Halloween, Thanksgiving, All the Saints Day, Black Thursday... coincide with Jewish festivities like Sukkot, Yom Kippur, Rosh Hassanah...?

At Millerite Camp-Meetings the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel began to Return to their Hebrew-Jewish Roots in the early 1840s.

The empire as our parents & grandparents knew it ceased to exist. But a new thing happened that had never happened to any previous empire in world's history. In place of the new free asociation of sovereign states came to being, all owing allegiance to the head of the Commonwealth as it was named Queen Elizabeth II. The great empires of the past had all disintegrated but the nations of the British empire chose to retain their links with Britain. Some still look to the Queen as their sovereign, while others became republics, but all are equally members of the Commonwealth. There can be no doubt that the Queen, by her devotion to duty & the strength & charm of her personality has played, & continues to play, a major holding of the Commonwealth together.

The origins of the multinational enterprises go back to the XIVth century of which are examples the trading enterprises that operated in the Hanseatic League, the English East India Company & the Dutch East India Company, the Hudson's Bay Company, etc. Nevertheless, the first really important development of the multinationalo enterprises begun at the end of the XIXth century appearing in a simultaneous way in some European countries & in the USA.

Omri, the sixth king of Israel, built the city of Samaria, the third and permanent capital of Israel, and that eventually the entire country, formerly called "All Israel," became known as Samaria, because that was the name of its capital also that Samaria became one of the national names of Israel, and is so used in some prophecies concerning them. Hence Omri is regarded as the real founder of the kingdom of Samaria, and Samaria-­Israel was often referred to by other nations as the House of Omri.


There are some cases where parents are of one tribe and a child may be declared to be of a different tribal lineage. While the purpose of this paper is not to explore the genetics of the transmission of tribal lineage, it is sufficient to say some individuals may have some genetic influence from more than one tribe, although only one tribe is declared as primary in each patriarchal blessing. There may also be dominant and recessive traits associated with lineage. When mixed lineage is present, lineage of Ephraim and Manasseh frequently appear to be dominant. For example, most full-blooded Irish members are of the tribe of Dan, while the overwhelming preponderance of those of mixed Irish ancestry – Irish-American, Irish-Scottish, Irish-English, etc. – are of the tribe of Ephraim. This concept of dominant and recessive inheritance may explain at least in part why there are so many LDS members of the lineage of Ephraim and Manasseh.

In Romania there are regions that were centuries ago colonized by Germans. The most remarkable of these regions were Burzenland & Nösnerland. The most remarkable local Germans are the Danube Swabians & the Transylvanian Saxons, both peoples being regarded as Israelites. Interestingly the coat of arms of Burzenland has a big Fleur de Lis & two Stars of David. Since the defeat of Germany in WWII & even more so at the fall of communism nearly & German's reunification, nearly all Germans (from the ex Soviet Union & Soviet satellites) have moved to the west of current Germany (the ex West Germany). Interestingly Romania's Prime Minister in 2015 is a Saxon, from the few saxons that stayed. Some of the areas that once had a huge German minority & now a tiny one are the Volga Republic (Russia), Silesia (Poland), Sudetes (Czechia)...

A lake called Manasarovar appears in a line of the Ramayana ie '"the lake Manasa" (any relation to the Israelite tribe?). Skanda-purana, a sacred Hindu text tell the story. Does it have any relation with the Israelite Skandinavians?


German Marcomanni in Bohemia invaded Bavaria and, on their departure, the Czechs settled in Bohemia.

Some of Tribes with Corelations

SIMEON

“Semnones, a people of Italy, on the borders of Umbria—of Germany, on the Elbe and Oder.” “Hear, Eternal, the voice of Judah” (Deut. 33:7) = Simeon = Hear (within Judah) “Samnitae, a people of Gaul” “Samnites, a people of Italy, who inhabited the country situated between Picenum, Campania, Apulia, and ancient Latium.

LEVI

“Walloons from present-day Belgium, who settled in the Bergslagen area (of Sweden) in the 1620’s” are Swedish immigrants who came to Sweden to help in the iron ore industry. Indeed, “Coal (which makes steel when added to iron) is the most valuable mineral resource in Wales. . . . The refining of metal ore, much of which is imported, is the major manufacturing industry. Almost all the tin plate and much of the aluminum of the sheet steel produced in Britain is made in the Welsh plants”. “Coal mining and the manufacture of iron, steel, and tinplate are important [in Wales]” Furthermore, “Belgium’s principle manufactures are iron and steel” 

These scriptures, in their figurative sense, imply that modern clergymen and priests and rabbis will
have a large percentage of Levites within their ranks. Judas of Kerioth was probably a Levite since
Kerioth is a city of refuge. (Cities of refuge: Kedesh, Shechem, Kiriath-Arba (Hebron) – Eburones,
Bezer, Ramoth, Golan (Josh. 20:7-8)). 

“Laevi, the ancient inhabitant of Gallia Transpadana.” “Laviana, a province of Armenia Minor." “Druidae, the ministers of religion among the ancient Gauls and Britons . . . Their name is derived
from the Greek word . . . an oak . . .” (p. 216, Lemp.). P.289 of One Man’s Destiny says the Druids
were the true religion.

REUBEN

The name “Reuben” can be seen in such well known names as “Narbonne” and “Ravenna.” In early
11th century France we find the country of “Bourbon” and a former kingdom in southern France was called “Navarre.”

GAD

GAD—Burgundian & Engadin in Graubunden.

ERI—Rhaetians, Uri (Num. 26:15-18) “St. Gallen” comes from “Gaul” or “Gilead” where Gad lived.
From the article, “Freedom That Will Be the First to Go,” by Bill Uselton, is the following quote: “The government of Switzerland feels the same way our Founders did about bearing arms. Every able-bodied man in Switzerland is a member of the militia, and has a machine gun or sniper rifle in his home with ammunition. Switzerland also has the lowest crime rate in Europe” 

“Gades (-ium), Gadis (-is), or Gadira, a town of the Spanish coast, 25 miles from the Pillars of
Hercules. It was sometimes called Tartessus and Erythia (after the Erites—Num. 26:16), according to
Pliny, and is now known by the name Cadiz. . . . Hercules, surnamed Gaditanus (a leader of men and a lion), had there a celebrated temple . . . The inhabitants were called Gaditani . . .

ASHER

Cabul=Chaubi (Strabo Map 6). “Asserini, a people of Sicily” (p. 86, Lemp.) “Aesar, or Aesaras, a river of Magna Graecia, falling into the sea near Croton. “Aesernia, a city of the Samnites, in Italy. 

ZEBULON

“The Netherlands has the densest network of waterways in the world”. “The Dutch fishing industry has existed since ancient times. Today the Dutch fishing fleet brings in halibut, cod, oysters, shrimp, eels, and—most important—herring. The Dutch rose to greatness as traders and seafarers. Their merchants and sea captains once made this small nation a leading world power. The country’s location on the North Sea has made it a natural trade center”.

Rotterdam is the largest port in Europe and one of the largest in the world. Locate on the New Maas River, which is part of the Rhine and Meuse river system, Rotterdam is the gate through which much of western Europe’s shipping must pass”. “The Dutch economy is characterized by a large volume of trade, much greater than might be expected for so small a nation. . . . Foreign trade is the mainstay of the Dutch economy. . . . Since 1965 the port of Rotterdam has been the world’s leading continent and is an important outlet for the industrial output of many miles (39 km) of wharves, half of which are for sea-going vessels. . . . The gigantic Rotterdam harbor stretches more than 17 miles (27 km). It consists of the small north basin on the northern bank and three ports on the left bank. . . . With the completion of Europort in 1975, Rotterdam became the greatest harbor in the world in terms of
water surface and number of piers”. 

“The machinery, electrical equipment, and transport equipment industries . . .(specialize mainly in) shipbuilding and repairing, concentrated in Rotterdam and Amsterdam”. “Dutch ports rank third in the world in cargo handled, with 70% of all goods transshipped, often after warehousing”.

“Of Zebulun, such as went forth to battle, expert in war, with all instruments of war, fifty thousand,
which could keep rank: they were not of double heart.” (IChron 12:33) “Zebulun . . . jeopardized their lives unto the death” (Judges 5:18).

Moses prophesied, “Rejoice Zebulun, in thy going out (or “Zebulun be glad in your Ports” —Fenton,
or “in your voyages abroad”—Jerusalem); and Issachar, in thy tents. They shall call the people unto
the mountain; there they shall offer sacrifices of righteousness, for they shall suck the abundance of
the seas, and treasures hidden in the sand” (or “They will be nourished by the bounty of the sea, and
by what is hidden in the secret treasures of the sands”—Living Torah, or “For they suck of the wide
spreading seas” —Fenton) (Deut. 33:18-19).

12 Children - Children prophet Jacob in Europe.

This is taken from a facebook group. I thought it was funny. I don't completely agree with  the locations & identifications of the tribes. You can not miss the USA, South Africa, the Commonwealth realms (Australia, Canada & N.Zealand)...

So where did the Israelites go?

Scholars are variously divided on this question. There is such controversy over this issue, that the people of this Assyrian Captivity (all of the House and Kingdom of Israel, along with a great portion of the House and Kingdom of Judah) are called the “Lost Tribes of Israel.” They are believed by many to be gone forever, having become amalgamated together with the people of Assyria, and mongrelized. But I do not believe this to be the case.

The Lord had said of the northern ten tribes (those thought to be ‘lost’) and their kingdom, “Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are upon the sinful kingdom [the northern kingdom – Israel], and I will destroy it [the kingdom, not the people] from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly

destroy the house of Jacob, saith the LORD. For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth” (Amos 9:8-9).

He also said, “I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hid from me ...” (Hosea 5:3); and that “... the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice or sacred pillar, without an ephod or teraphim: [but] afterward the children of Israel shall return and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and His goodness in the

latter days” (Hosea 3:4-5).

There are numerous prophecies, yet to be fulfilled, which include each of the twelve tribes. What about these prophecies? If these people are truly ‘lost’ forever, how can these prophecies be fulfilled? They can’t be fulfilled! But the veracity of God’s Holy Word demands that these tribes do exist. The book of James, written eight centuries after the Assyrian captivity, is addressed to “the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad.” So they have got to be out there somewhere! I refuse to believe the

scholars who say that these ten [plus] tribes were lost!

They may be lost to the world, lost to the present day Jews, and even lost to their own selves (for “blind is my servant”), but I believe God when He says that He will not ‘lose’ His people. No, they are not lost. God knows where they are, for He has guided their path and fed them all these many years! And if we will look, and study history and the Scriptures, we will know where they are too!

Josephus, writing in the first century AD, knew where his kindred were. He wrote: “...there are but two tribes in Asia and Europe subject to the Romans, while the ten tribes are beyond the Euphrates [west from Palestine] till now, and are an immense multitude, and not to be estimated by numbers”.

So they have still got to be out there somewhere! And they have got to be a great people! The prophet Ezra writes more specifically, “And whereas thou sawest that He gathered another peaceable multitude unto Him; those are the ten tribes, which were carried away prisoners out of their own

land in the time of Osea [Hoshea] the king, whom Salmanasar the king of Assyria led away captive, and he carried them over the waters, and so came they into another land.

But they took this counsel among themselves, that they would leave the multitude of the heathen, and go forth into a further country, where never mankind dwelt, that they might there keep their statutes, which they never kept in their own land. And they entered into Euphrates by the narrow

passages of the river. For the most High then shewed signs for them, and held still the flood, till they were passed over. For through that country there was a great way to go, namely, of a year and a half: and the same region is called Arsareth” (II Esdras 13:39-45).

The area referred to is near the headwaters of the Euphrates, in the Caucasian Mountains (there's amountain Zion in the area), between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. That area has a ravine or ‘gate,’ if you will, called “the pass of Israel” in early writings. The Kimmerians, or Cimmerians, were also called Sakai.

The Tribe of Dan are the Danes (Denmark) and the Irish

Today, the tribe of Dan in Ireland is still given into idolatry following the traditions of  their ancestors. They are as a nation, an integral part of the false mystery system God labels as “MYSTERY,  BABYLON THE GREAT” in Revelation 17:5. This is a great false church, a worldly church, which has persecuted God's true servants down through the ages (Verse 6).

Notice in Revelation 2:20, this same false church is likened to that wicked “woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a  prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.” God says He will smite her children with death because they have known the “depths of Satan” (Verses 23-24).

Jezebel’s children, then, are those who have been taught at an early age her abominable idolatries and filthiness (Rev. 2:20) and are deep in her doctrine (Verse 24). This woman Jezebel symbolizes the Roman Catholic Church. Most Danites (Irish) are members of this false church from birth, attending her schools, festivals and idolatrous religious worship services. This is the same false church God commands His people to “come out of” so they will not receive of the plagues He is going to bring on those who worship her (Rev. 18 :4). Since the nation of Ireland, the modern Danites, are in the “depths of Satan” and do not know God’s true way, probably nothing less than the complete destruction of this false Roman church, combined with the presence and power of Christ’s rule on this earth, will finally bring them to repentance. Dan says to God: “I have waited for thy salvation, O Lord” (Gen. 49:l6).

It is Denmark that will be part of the 144,000. How can we know? The clue is in the name "Manasses." Back in Judges the 18th chapter the inland Danites who moved to Denmark, when they migrated to Laish and named it Dan after their father. Afterward the children of Dan "...set up the graven image: and Jonathan, the son of Gershom, the son of Manasseh, he and his sons were priests to the tribe of Dan until the day of the captivity of the land." (v.30). The Septuagint has "Manasses" just like the book of Revelation. (Barnes Notes). God is telling us that it is Denmark and not Ireland that will have 12,000 that will rule with Christ on Mt. Zion. The Irish will have to go through the plagues, watch the Catholic church be destroyed (Rev  18), and Jesus himself to help them come out of idolatry that they have been steeped into for centuries.

LEVITE PRIESTS = DRUIDS

The Druids were not only the priests, doctors, poets, and minstrels of ancient Wales - where their center was located; but they were the teachers who retained the sacred knowledge of ancient Hebrew times. The word Druid is derived from DRU, which means Oak Tree, which was sacred to the Druids. However, more credible still, since we now know who the Druids were, is the Gaelic word 'Druidh', describing a wise man, or the holder of much secret knowledge. The wisdom these priests were privy to consisted of healing potions - as in herbalism, they were teachers, legislators, astronomers, astrologers, chemists, musicians, poets, the holders of all religious holy days and rituals, philosophers, and judges.


The Druids believed in a Supreme Power over the Universe and the belief in the Immortality of the human soul. In Wales, there were three classes of Druids - the Bards, the Ovates, and the Druid priests. Bards were the historians and teachers, Ovates were the herbalist and doctors, and Druids were the priests. So revered were the Levite-Druid priests and Bards, that schools were set up to learn of their vast knowledge - especially that of medicinal practices. The immense power of the Druids became the weakness for the Celtic people. No culture that is ruled by priests, drawing their authority from spiritual sanctions, is capable of ruling a kingdom. The Druid's adherence to their religion inevitably helped bring down their kingdom of Welsh chieftains. After the advent of Christianity, the Druids were not allowed to practice their priestly duties at all.


            It seems ironic that one of the early kingdoms of Wales was the 'kingdom of Dyred', which is a Celtic take on the name 'David', the beloved king of the 'lost tribes of Israel'. The patron saint of Wales is St. David, with St. David's day celebrated annually on March 1st.

Ancient Gad and Modern Switzerland in History and Prophecy

The Swiss chafed under Habsburg rule. The wished to preserve their isolation and local, democratic rule. They did not want the Babylonian-style feudal system They revolted. In 1291 three cantons Uri, Schwyz, and Unterwalden gave birth to the Swiss nation. Eri, interestingly enough was one of the sons of Gad. Even more interesting is the presence of the Gadman Valley in Swiss territory. Their first victory against the Habsburgs took place in 1315 at the battle of Morgarten. 

The three Swiss cantons not only secured their freedom but went on to liberate other cantons. By the early 1400's there were eight Swiss states , including Zurich, Lucerne and Bern. The Swiss became rich and powerful and renowned as fighting mercenaries. They were swift, fearless mountain fighters just like their Gadite ancestors.

Even after the French halted Swiss expansion at the Battle of Marignano in 1405 , everyone prized the Swiss mercenaries that rarely flinched on the field of battle. In the 1470's they fought Charles the Bold of Burgundy. The big climactic war with the House of Austria took place in the Swabian War in the 1490's. In 1499 the Habsburg Emperor Maximilian I recognized Swiss independence from the Holy Roman Empire.


Gad was also to become a lawgiver and arbitrator for Israel. Ulrich Zwingli began the Swiss Reformation but John Calvin took it much further. Jean Cauvin, or John Calvin was a Frenchman who sought to bring many in Europe back to the laws of God. Calvin's theocracy in Geneva patterned itself upon ancient Israel and inspired the Scottish and Dutch Reformations as well as the Puritans who founded New England.

Israelites from Scythian-Parthian Lands to the World

Sir William Jones, Sir John Malcolm and the missing Chamberlain, after full investigation, were of the opinion that the Ten Tribes migrated to India, Tibet, and Cashemire [Kashmir] through Afghanistan.

The sheer breadth of Peter’s ministry makes it impossible that he could have been bishop of Rome. Betania is in the area of Tbilisi in the Caucasus. It is the area from where the Anglo-Saxons came as part of the Parthian horde and where the Israelites had been banished. Peter’s major area of mission was to the Lost Tribes of Israel scattered abroad and there fused with the Scythians and Parthians, and not to Rome. Paul was apostle to the Gentiles not Peter; he was an apostle to the circumcision.

Parthia at one time occupied areas now in Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Pakistan, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine and Israel. Parthia stood between Rome and the East. The sub-kingdoms of the Parthians were Characene, Elymais and Persis.

After defeating the Romans, but weakened by them, the Persians who were once part of its empire attacked and defeated the Parthians and caused a portion of its central horde to move north-west into Europe under The Judge who was its leader U’din or Odin or Woden. They brought with them the Almanac or calendar based on the New Moons. Almanach means the counting in Arabic.  Some of the horde that were to become the Kurds remained behind. Their most famous leader was Salah’ u’din or Saladin.

The area contained the groups that went from what is now Armenia and Georgia and the area around the Black Sea and Caspian Sea into Europe. The tradition that Peter preached to the British comes from his mission to the Israelites among the Anglo-Saxons, Jutes and other tribes of the Horde while in Parthia and not in Britain itself. The combination of these people would be of R1b and a Semitic Haplogroup I. We find this combination throughout Western Europe in the Celts, Angles, Saxons of Britain and Saxony, Jutes, Danes, Norse, Frisians, and into France and Spain. West Europe and Denmark are largely a combination of R1b and I Haplogroups. Some are known Anglo-Saxons and Celts, some are Gomerites and some are Magogites. Some are Goths, Alans and Heruli.  The I groups are Semites and the divisions of them will no doubt identify the tribes.

“Like other aspects of Parthian material culture, there are distinct differences between regions in burial practices.  There have been few Parthian burials reported from Iran.  This is probably due to the nature of burial, as simple cremation-type burials leave little for archaeology.  Further west the picture is more complicated.  The site of Shahr-I Qumis (northeast of Tehran) yielded evidence for multi-room funerary structures.  Human and animal bones were found together, leading the excavators to speculate on a cultural connection with the Scythians, who deposited horse bones with human burials.  As with other areas of the Parthian empire, too little is known about the relationship between material remains and religion".

The Parthians were not one tribal group and were nomads. They wore trousers and were associated with horsemanship. Many Scythians wore kilts, and further east they were in the Uigur autonomous region of what is now China. The men also took wives from other racial or sedentary groups.

YDNA evidence now shows that Scots, Irish and other Celts, as well as Anglo-Saxons and Normans, have predominantly R1b YDNA with a section of Semitic I. The historical record shows they were all from the area of the Russian steppes with some from Assyria, such as the Hermanduri, or men of Ur, who form the modern German Thuringians. 

The Romans recruited the Sarmatians after they managed to defeat them and placed many of them in Britain in the army, and these were once no doubt part of the Parthian horde that did not move into Europe with the Anglo-Saxons. The Massagetae, or Greater Goths, and Vandals moved in as part of the Horde and all were Unitarian Sabbatarians. The Goths split up into the Ostrogoths (Eastern Goths) who settled in Italy and Austria along with the Lombards and the Visi-Goths (Western Goths) who occupied Spain. These people were all predominantly R1b or I haplogroups. Thus they were a mixture of Japhethite and Semite lineage. Hence the prophecy was fulfilled that Japheth would be enlarged and would dwell in the tents of Shem. In other words, Japheth would be the larger or greater people but the birthright promises of Shem would be conferred on him as well due to their intermarriage.

The Anglo-Saxons and the Lombards that split off from them all wore trousers and fringes around the bottoms of them.

There is little doubt that the R1bs come from the one ancestor, and ultimately the R1a Slavs also come from the same lineage, perhaps higher up; or perhaps some of them became R1a and some developed into R1b due to isolation from the same ancestors. The absence of R1b in North Africa where the Vandals went indicated they either were completely wiped out or were RxR1 basics and settled in Cameroon.


The Arsacids (Parthia's rulers) were called the Ashkanians

The Encyclopaedia Britannica records that in Persian tradition the Arsacids (Parthia's rulers) were called the Ashkanians. The Britannica further notes that this name wasbased on the term "Ashak." The word "Ashak" is based on the Hebrew name "Isaac" aswas a city in the Parthian homeland named "Asaak." Genesis 21:12 prophesied that theIsraelites would be known by the name of Isaac, and this came true as the Parthians andScythians were identified by such names as Sacae, Asaak, Ashak, and Sacan (or Saxon).When the Israelites and Jews were expelled from Parthia by the Sassanian Persians, it isnoteworthy that the Persian name for the Parthians remained on the Parthian Jews whomigrated toward Europe. The Parthian name "Ashkan-ian" is easily seen in the termAshken-azi Jew! The very term "Ashkenazi" proclaims a Parthian (or Israelite) origin, and the term "Ashkenazi Jew" could just as easily be rendered as "Parthian Jew."

SET THEE UP WAYMARKS, MAKE THEE HIGH HEAPS

[Jeremiah 31:21] SET THEE UP WAYMARKS, MAKE THEE HIGH HEAPS: SET THINE HEART TOWARD THE HIGHWAY, EVEN THE WAY WHICH THOU WENTEST: TURN AGAIN, O VIRGIN OF ISRAEL, TURN AGAIN TO THESE THY CITIES.

In these verses God is calling upon Ephraim (the Lost Ten Tribes) to repent. They are told to set up high heaps and way marks so that they may remember where they came from and how to get back to the cities in Israel they came out of. The words in Hebrew (as explained by the Radak in the 1200s; Rabbi David Kimchi, 1157-1236) of Narbonne, France ) for high heaps and waymarks (Tzionim, tamrurim) actually mean stone monuments such as dolmens. Dolmens are a type of stone monument used in ancient times. They are found in the land of Israel and in Spain, France, Britain, Ireland, Holland, Denmark, and Sweden. The dolmens describe a migrating path of people from the Land of Israel to the west. Jeremiah predicted that they would set up this path and by tracing this path we can prove that the Israelites went to the north and west, as the Prophets said they would.


The paths of the stone monuments show us how the Lost Ten Tribes left their land and where they went. Jeremiah the Prophet transmits the command of God telling us to take heed of the paths we went in, the monuments we set up, and the way leading back to the cities of our forefathers in the Land of Israel.




Anglo - America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel

Upon the reverse of our national seal the references to our birthright as descendants of Joseph and Manasseh, and thus of Egyptian origin, are even still more pointed. The leading motto--" Annuit Coeptis " ("He has prospered our beginnings")--is a direct use of an expression so often reiterated in the Bible story of Joseph, that he has become the very type of a prosperous man...The building — a pyramid unfinished — an emblem of stability, of perfect measure, just weight, and of eternal truth, and harmony with nature, man and God, is eminently the Egyptian emblem of Manasseh. 

The above source also indicated that the fact that the "Great Seal" shows a bow and arrows was consistent with the following scripture:


22 "Joseph is a fruitful bough, A fruitful bough by a well; His branches run over the wall. 23 The archers have bitterly grieved him, Shot at him and hated him. 24 But his bow remained in strength, And the arms of his hands were made strong By the hands of the Mighty God of Jacob (From there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel), (Genesis 49:22-24)


Joseph: Menasseh U.S.A. The United States of America...The reverse side of the Great Seal of the U.S.A...shows a pyramid...A PYRAMID is also a typical representation of Egypt and according to Jewish tradition the Tribe of Joseph had A picture of Egypt (possibly a pyramid for their Tribal Standard). 

It is not clear to me that the developers of the "Great Seal" intended a connection to the tribe of Manasseh (other sources suggest that the banner for Manasseh was more like a wild ox that morphed into a unicorn; the Jewish Encyclopedia article on Manasseh says that its "standard," along with consist the other of Rachel's sons, consisted of a boy with the inscription "The cloud of the Lord rested on them until they went forth out of the camp"). Yet, it may be of interest to note that Benjamin Franklin wanted the seal to show the children of Israel leaving Egypt and Thomas Jefferson wanted to show the children of Israel in the wilderness.

Is Isaiah 49:12 a Referring to Australia and New Zealand?

The word "Australia" seems to signify southern lands. And speaking of southern lands like Australia and New Zealand, notice a prophecy in Isaiah 49:12:

12 Surely these shall come from afar; Look! Those from the north and the west, And these from the land of Sinim. (Isaiah 49:12, NKJV)

ecce isti de longe venient et ecce illi ab aquilone et mari et isti de terra australi (Isaiah 49:12; Jerome translation: Latin Vulgate Bible)


Referring to the house of ISRAEL, not Judah (Isaiah 49:3,6), God says: "Behold, these shall come from far: and, lo, these from the NORTH and from the WEST; and these from the land of Sinim" (Isa. 49:12). In the Hebrew, the language in which this was originally inspired, there is no word for "northwest," but this term is designated by the phrase, "the north and the west."

As many already know "British" means covenant of man, or covenant man and "Union Jack" means, the Commonwealth or Union of Jacob. One can only imagine and lament as to how many non-Jewish Israelites, are to be found today in the Roman Catholic Church.


England first “spread abroad to the west”. It lost its first colony (Isaiah 49:20). Later, the people went “to the east” (India and elsewhere), “to the north” (Canada) and to the south (the Cape Colony, Australia and New Zealand). Hence “the empire on which the sun never sets” applied to the British empire and later the Anglo-American territories.


Moses tells us that when Gad’s time comes, he will utterly over take his enemies like a lion. This and Jacob’s prophecy has come to pass when Gad (Igbos) was temporarily overcome and ended up overcoming in the Nigerian Biafran War. The History of the Igbo’s and of the Jews today parallel and are practically in sync with one another. The sleeping Lion of Gad is now rousing and can only become more powerful, woe unto those who attempt to taunt this waking Lion. Moses also tells us that those who help the cause of Gad, fight on behalf of Gad will be blessed. You, just by reading this book are partaking in the unfolding of prophetic history and helping to “enlarge” Gad and therefore you will be blessed! Did you ever think that you would ever partake in any way the recovery of the “lost tribes” or be a part of prophetic history in any way!?

Lands of the Dispersion: Britons from Armenia; Picts from Scythia


The island Britain is 800 miles long, and 200 miles broad. And there are in the island five nations; English, Welsh (or British), Scottish, Pictish, and Latin. The first inhabitants were the Britons, who came from Armenia, and first peopled Britain southward. Then happened it, that the Picts came south from Scythia, with long ships, not many; and, landing first in the northern part of Ireland, they told the Scots that they must dwell there. But they would not give them leave; for the Scots told them that they could not all dwell there together; ‘But,’ said the Scots, ‘we can nevertheless give you advice. We know another island here to the east. There you may dwell, if you will; and whosoever withstandeth you, we will assist you, that you may gain it.’ Then went the Picts and entered this land northward. Southward the Britons possessed it, as we before said. And the Picts obtained wives of the Scots, on condition that they chose their kings always on the female side; which they have continued to do, so long since. And it happened, in the run of years, that some party of Scots went from Ireland into Britain, and acquired some portion of this land. Their leader was called Reoda, from whom they are named Dalreodi (or Dalreathians).

This chronicle is particularly interesting from the standpoint of the dispersion of the tribes of Israel. It is well-known that British and Scots have a large amount of Ephraimite blood. Joseph Smith was a pure Ephraimite of Scotch-English descent. Most of the early Church members were of Scottish, English, and Scandinavian descent. The blood of Ephraim was highly concentrated in these nations.

It is also widely believed that the Lost Tribes of Israel traveled through Armenia. Local Armenian traditions, some archaelogical evidence, and apocryphal scriptures all corroborate this. Church Patriarch Hyrum G. Smith, Assistant Church Historian Elder Andrew Jenson, and others have cited the passage from 2 Esdras about a group from the Ten Tribes traveling through the area of present-day Armenia in the exodus from their captors. In fact, after citing this passage, Elder Jenson states that ‘there are undoubtedly many things in Esdras that are just as reliable as things found in the scriptures that are called canonical.’


The Anglo-Saxon chronicle connects the two by stating that the Britons came from Armenia. This same reading occurs in all of the earliest copies of the Chronicle. The editors, supposing this to be erroneous, postulate in their footnote that ‘Armorica’ was intended. But I think that the original records here are faithful on this account, and there is no reason to disbelieve it. To the contrary, the proximity of ‘Armenia’ and ‘Scythia’ in the same paragraph makes the account fully credible as it is written.

The Chronicle is also interesting because it notes that the Picts — who, with the Scots, formed the Scottish nation — were Scythians. Scythians lived in the area north of the Black Sea at the time of the migration of the northern ten tribes. While Scythian ancestry and history is still controversial, it is generally agreed that much Scythian blood [in addition to other influences] is preserved in Ukrainians and Russians. If the Chronicle is accurate, it appears that the Scots are relatives of the Ukrainians and of some Russians. 


The account of the Scythian sailors — who left their homeland for reasons not indicated in the text — arriving in Scotland explains the maternal transmission of clan leadership. It is possible — if there was some early mixing of the Scythians with the Ten Tribes — that the Scythian sailors could have contributed to the high concentration of the Blood of Israel among the Scots.


Isaiah and the Ten Lost Tribes

In addition to the Khazars, many other converts to Judaism through the ages were descended from assimilated Jews or from members of the Lost Ten Tribes

Scythian & Sarmatians were Israelites

The word Sarmatian may also be spelt Samartian. However, some writers dispute whether the Sarmatæ are an identical people to the Sauromatæ. Vernadsky notes the following:

“ It is doubtful that the name 'Sarmatæ' has any inner connection with 'Sauromatæ'; the similarity must be accidental ... the Greeks and the Romans called the 'Sarmatian' tribes ‘Sarmatæ’ ...”

In any event, Pliny mentions that the Sarmatians were part of the Scythian hordes. Amongst their tribes were the Alani, Iazyges, Roxolani, Siraces, Aorsi and Antæ-

The Scythians had been referred to as "Ishkuza" meaning "Isaac" and as "Isk-Golu" meaning the "Exiled of Isaac". Abraham had been promised "In Isaac will your seed be called" (Genesis 20:12) and the separate northern Tribes of Israel were called "Isaac" (Amos 7:9) and "House of Isaac" (Amos 7:16). The Scythians were most often referred to as "Saka" and a form of this name in the Iranian-Afghanistan region later became a recognised form of "Isaac". The Scythians later moved northward into the former USSR region and one of their branches were the Khazars who eventually converted to Judaism. Saksin was one of the Khazar capitals and it was referred to in early Russian writings as the "Saxon City". The Anglo-Saxons descended from the Scythians.

The Khazars incidentally had formally been known as "Acatziri" or "Agathyrsi" and a branch of them crossed the sea to Scotland and became known as the Picts.

The Throne of David in Prophecy

The five sons of Zarah were, “Zimri, and Ethan, and Heman, and Calcol, and Dara:” In 1 Kings 4:31 it has, “For he was wiser than all men; than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, and Chalcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol: and his fame was in all nations round about.” These two names are spelt, “Darda” and “Chalcol,” in the book of Kings, being more Phoenician in language as opposed to the book of Chronicles. Josephus in at least one translation of the Antiquities, in mentioning King Solomon gives Dara’s name as “Dardanos.” So perhaps Dara and Dardanus were regarded as the same man during the 1st Century AD.
.
Two of these can be identified as Cecrops and Dardanus. Two groups that ancient history reveals came from Egypt and migrated to Greece and became the founders of Athens and Troy. 

Now there were a people in ancient Greece called the “Colchians.” Herodotus says these were Egyptians as well, “For it is plain to see that the Colchians are Egyptians; and what I say, I myself noted before I heard it from others. When it occurred to me, I inquired of both peoples; and the Colchians remembered the Egyptians better than the Egyptians remembered the Colchians; the Egyptians said that they considered the Colchians part of Sesostris’ army. I myself guessed it, partly because they are dark-skinned and woolly-haired; though that indeed counts for nothing, since other peoples are, too; but my better proof was that the Colchians and Egyptians and Ethiopians are the only nations that have from the first practiced circumcision”

“To Hippocrates the Phasians of Colchis were sallow (ochros) (Aer 15) whilst the complexions of the modern-day Georgian population have been described as ‘fair, sallow or ruddy’. Interesting how King David was described as “ruddy.” Israelites are described as “ruddy” (1 Sam 16:12; 17:42; Songs 5:10; Lam 4:7). All can be described with reddish hair, “flush” or “rosy” cheeks with “fair eyes”. One source says, “Ruddy: red; reddish; of the color of healthy skin in white-skinned peoples”

“That indeed counts for nothing, since other peoples are, too;” But to prove our point, the Colchians do look like the descriptions of the Israelites in the Bible.

The Land of Colchis is in, “…ancient region at the eastern end of the Black Sea south of the Caucasus, in the western part of modern Georgia. It consisted of the valley of the Phasis (modern Riuni) River. In Greek mythology Colchis was the home of Medea and the destination of the Argonauts, a land of fabulous wealth and the domain of sorcery. Historically, Colchis was colonized by Milesian Greeks to whom the native Colchians supplied gold, slaves, hides, linen cloth, agricultural produce, and such shipbuilding materials as timber, flax, pitch, and wax” 

Diodorus Siculus writes, “They say also that those who set forth with Danaus, likewise from Egypt, settled what is practically the oldest city in Greece, Argos, and that the nation of the Colchi in Pontus and that of the Jews, which lies between Arabia and Syria, were founded as colonies by certain emigrants from their country; and this is the reason why it is a longestablished institution among these two peoples to circumcise their male children, the custom having been brought over from Egypt. Even the Athenians, they say, are colonists from Saïs in Egypt, and they undertake to offer proofs of such a relationship; for the Athenians are the only Greeks who call their city ‘Asty,’ a name brought over from the city Asty in Egypt.” (Book 1, ch.28, v.2-4). So Diodorus confirms what Herodotus says that these people are of Egyptian origin.

Now how do we link Athens with the Colchi? To the immediate northeast of Athens lies the great island of Euboea whose great central territory was known as Chalcis. Says historian Will Durant, “Its coastal plains were rich enough to lure Ionians from Attica in the days of the Dorian  invasion [ca. 1100 B.C.]” ( The Story of Civilization , Vol. 2, p. 106). So Athenians migrated here.

But the Athenian Chalcians followed another migration pattern as well. We later find them on the Macedonian coast in northern Greece: “Greeks, mostly from Chalcis and Eretria [just south of Chalcis on Euboea], conquered and named the three-fingered peninsula of Chalcidice”.

East of here, on the Bosporus Straits leading up into the Black Sea, where now sits the Asian side of Istanbul, was established ancient Chalcedon—which was also a colony of Miletus. Then, passing into the Black Sea and traveling further east along the length of its southern shore we eventually come to Colchis. So there is a likely migratory pattern linking these areas after all.

Cecrops was the founder of Athens and the first. Being the first king of Athens he is obviously Colchi, of the Royal scepter tribe of Zerah-Judah. Some do not see the connection of Cecrops and Calcol simply by the two names, but the history of the two are similar. Totten explains, “In tracing the history of this family we shall use indiscriminately the various spellings common to the several records, and which are often found to be different even in the same record.

There is nothing odd in the fact of these numerous names for each of these celebrated individuals, for we find numberless parallels in modern times. As to the matter of variety in spelling, as for instance Chalcol, Calcol, Dara, Darda, Mahol, Mohul, etc., it was a common thing among the Hebrews; we find a notable case in Abraham and Abram, Bram and Brahma, and as instances of several names for the same individual we need only refer to the cases of Jacob, Joseph and Daniel.

Different circumstances gave them different names, and with the change of venue as they wandered from land to land (we refer now particularly to the sons of Zerah or Zarah) they naturally appear with different names without loss of identity. Thus Chalcol or Calcol became Calchis to the Phoenicians, Cecrops to the Greeks and Niul, Niulus, or Nilus to the Egyptians, while his father Mahol was the Scytha and Phaanius of the Phoenicians, and the Fanesia Farsa of the Irish. The reader will understand the matter as he proceeds.”

THE TWO HOUSES OF ISRAEL


AN important key to understanding Israel in prophecy is that after the time of Solomon God’s people were split into two nations, the house of Israel (ten tribes), and the house of Judah (two tribes), as related in First Kings, chapter 12. This division continued, for God speaks of “the two families” whom He had chosen — Israel and Judah — and declares, “Thus says the Lord: If I have not established my covenant with day and night and the ordinances of heaven and earth, then I will reject the descendants of Jacob [Israel] and David my servant [Judah] ...” (Jeremiah 33:24-26) These two families are called the “two wives”(Jeremiah 3:6-14), “sisters” (Ezekiel 23:2), “two nations” (Ezekiel 37:22), and “two kingdoms.” (Ezekiel 37:22) They were the “two sons” of Christ’s parables, indicating their continuing separateness in His day. (Matthew 21:28-32; Luke 15:11-32)



In fact, the first Scriptural mention of the Jews is in 2 Kings 16:6 where they were at war with Israel. Letters were written by the chief rabbis of the British Empire in 1918 and 1950, explaining that this division has continued to the present day, and that the Jewish people are descended only from the house of Judah. The house of Israel, sometimes called ‘Ephraim’ after its leading tribe, instead was conquered by Assyria in the 8th century, B.C. and scattered through the nations of the world.


Indeed, there are many clues to the identity of lost Israel from both the Bible and history. The Apocrypha tells us that they were conquered by Assyria and dispersed to an uninhabited land, “where never mankind dwelt” (2 Esdras 13:40-48), a good description of uninhabited Europe of that day. Isaiah 62:2 says that they would have “a new name.”


The details in our picture help to tell the story of these “lost sheep” in our world today. The soldier in the foreground wears brightly coloured clothing which was favoured by the people popularly called Scythian, the Greek form of the Medo-Persian word, Saka. A later form of the word is “Saxon,” from the Medo-Persian, “Saka-Suni” or ‘Sons of the Saca.’ In his book The Story of Celto-Saxon Israel, Mr WH. Bennett provides scholarly evidence of the origin of the words, Scythian, Saka, or Saxon in the word, Isaac. The soldier’s colourful clothing reminds us of the Patriarch Joseph’s famous “coat of many colours” referred to in Genesis 37:3, 23, and 32. The origin and inspiration of the famous Scottish Tartan patterns may also date back to Joseph. Indeed, the word, “tartan,” itself was a Semitic term for a military official or captain of a host. (2 Kings 18:17; Isaiah 20:1)


In the soldier’s belt is a battle-axe, an identifying mark of Israel, the nation called in Scripture, “God’s battleaxe.” (how about the Indian's tomahawk?).


Jeremiah 51:20 says: “Thou art my battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms.”


Other Biblical prophets echo this: “Thus shall they be taking captive their captors, and shall tread down their oppressors.” - (Isaiah 14:2)


“Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument, having teeth, thou shalt thresh the mountains [large nations], and beat them small, and shalt make the hills [small nations] as chaff.” - (Isaiah 4l :15)


 A ‘Daryal Pass’ valley route sometimes called, “the Pass of Israel,” is clearly marked out in red in the Cambridge History Of Iran, (vol. 3:1:522); it was a favourite passage-way to Europe from the Mid-East.


There are many evidences of Hebrews in the Caucasus. The Jewish Encyclopedia states, “...the Caucasus Jews claim to be descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel ... the Georgians (rabbi Eliyahu also considers them as Lost Israelites. He's is an expert on the Lost Ten Tribes.) are equally certain of their descent from the Israelites who were taken from Palestine by Shalmanesar [726-722 B.C.].”

Do we have any proof that Hebrews were in the Caucasus and that they were in fact lost tribes of the house of Israel? The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia carries a fascinating article documenting the early presence of Hebrews in the Caucasus Mountains. It states, “The first immigration of [Israelites] into the Trans-Caucasus (supposed to have taken place in the 7th century, B.C.E., during the reign of the Assyrian kings) is recounted in ancient Armenian and Georgian chronicles. According to these chronicles, [Israel] arrived in these regions as early as the beginning of the 6th century, B.C.E. The first arrivals were probably free merchants, while the later partly came as captives.” (VIII:26) What Israelites were in captivity in the 6th and 7th centuries B.C.? These were the lost ten tribes of the house of Israel, found in the Caucasus Mountains of Eastern Europe a few short years after their dispersion, according to the ancient Armenian and Georgian Chronicles. It is also significant that the Caucasus Mountain nation we call, Georgia is known to its inhabitants by its native name of ‘Sakartvelo,’ and another early town there is called, ‘Sachkhere,’ perhaps revealing the presence of the ‘Saka’ in that region in early times.

Lands of the Dispersion: Northern Europe


We can approach the subject from the earliest dawn of history down the stream of time as far as we can reach; and then we can proceed the other way, going back from ourselves as far as we can, and we meet the proposition in Scandinavia and Northern Germany that the Anglo Saxons, the Germans and the Scandinavians are greatly, mixed up with the remnants of the House of Israel. We can scarcely come to any other conclusion. Then we naturally spring another question: Why have the Latter-day Saint missionaries met with much more success among the Anglo-Saxons and the German and Scandinavian races, than among any other races upon the face of the earth? The answer is: We are, in fulfillment of the predictions of the ancient Prophets, gathering Israel. Why do we have so much to say at the present time, and at this conference, about the second, third, fourth and fifth generations of Latter-day Saints? It is the most natural thing in the world. If we are of Israel, our genealogy must assume a shape like that, for the children of Israel, if not corrupted by environments, will naturally worship the God of their fathers. And we are of Israel; there is no doubt of it, and we will find that when our genealogy is revealed in detail, it will lead us back from America to England, from England to Scandinavia and Germany, and from there to the country lying between the Caspian and the Black Sea, that part of Asia where the Ten Tribes were lost. We can then easily trace it back to Palestine and Chaldea; we have the history completed from the Bible.


I rejoice that so many faithful men and women have believed and embraced the gospel as it has been preached by the Latter-day Saints during the last eighty years. I repeat, that when we have turned our attention to Latin or Oriental countries, we have met with but little success. If we have preached the gospel successfully in Australia, it is perhaps because the people there are mainly of English origin, and the same can be said of New Zealand, as to the white population. And if we speak of the Hawaiians and the Samoans and the Maoris, then they are simply another branch of the House of Israel, and that is undoubtedly the reason why we have met with success among them. Study the history of our missionary career ever since the Church was organized and I will venture to say that we hitherto have made very little progress among any people except those who come, as we claim, either pure or mixed from the House of Israel. 

The Tribe of Gad is Switzerland





The Gauls called themselves Kymris, but the Romans labeled them Celts, Galli, Gallus and Galates ( Galatians ). The Hellenistic and Roman conquerors (300 B.C. - A.D. 200) renamed the area of Gilead, once home of the exiled Israelite tribes of Gad, Reuben and half of Manasseh, Gaulanitis.

Curiously, the term Gaul, whether gallo or gallus in Latin, galler or waller in Celtic, waller or walah in German or gaullois in French, seems to carry the same meaning: "stranger, traveler or exile." To the Celts the words Gael and Scythe both meant "stranger" or "traveler." God had told the 10 tribes of Israel they would become wanderers (Hosea 9:17).


Just to the east of the Sea of Galilee we still find the GOLAN Heights. The Hebrew Golan means “their captivity” and comes from the word Golah, meaning “captive” or “exile” (Enhanced Strong’s Lexicon). Arthur Spier, Jewish author of A Comprehensive Hebrew Calendar, says that “Golah” referred to those Israelite “communities living beyond the confines of Israel” (p. 62). Galilee, Gilead, Gad, Golan and Golah are all etymological roots for Galatae, Goidels or Gauls! So the Gauls are made up mainly of the peoples of Gilead, of the tribes of Gad and Reuben. Reuben is France.

THE RESTORATION OF ALL ISRAEL

Based on this and much additional recent research it can definitely be shown that significant portions of the Lost Tribes migrated northwest, toward Europe and are to be found today among the Scandinavian, Celtic & kindred peoples. In other words the tribes are largely located today in the United States, Great Britain, northwestern Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and other scattered areas. They are primarily Protestant, tied to their Biblical heritage, and have by and large provided a hospitable climate for Jews and even supported Zionism. Unfortunately, most researchers have tended to look to the East, and have only found scattered pockets of peoples who might be associated with the tribes--the Bene Israel of India, the Pathans on the Afghani-Pakastani border, the Kashmiris, the Chiang-Min on the Chinese-Tibetan border, and even many tribes of Africa of whom the Ethiopians have been the most prominent example. These attempts at locating the tribes miss the fact that the most significant group went northwest into Europe, and did finally fulfill the promises that were made to the two sons of Joseph--Ephraim and Manasseh, about unprecedented national greatness (Genesis 48:4-20). They were to become a great company of nations leading the world in wealth and influence (Genesis 49:22-26; Deuteronomy 33:13-17). This fits in well with what the Prophets predict for the last days, when the Lost Tribes return. They are pictured "without number, as the sand of the sea" not as tiny insignificant pockets of tribal groups. The official rabbinic ruling (halacha) is that the Lost Tribes will return.

Jeremiah 3:6-18: The northern tribes of Israel return and join Judah, "one from a city, two from a family" prior to the complete union when the Kingdom of God comes. This appears to be what has begun to happen in our day.

16:14-19: This is often applied to Judah and to the Jews returning to the Land in our century, but in context, it applies in particular to the House of Israel (Lost Tribes), who have become like the "nations," whose fathers have inherited lies. Note the images: the first stage is fishing; the second is hunting. Judah already went through this stage, particularly after 1880, when the Zionists were able to "fish" ordraw a number of Jews back to the Land. However, it took the "hunters" (Nazis, Arabs, Soviets) to really get them to leave "Egypt and Babylon," following WWII. Perhaps we may expect a similar pattern with the return of the Lost Tribes.

23:1-6: This passage makes it clear that both Houses will come eventually--and again their return is associated with the Davidic Messiah. This GREAT RETURN is to rival the Exodus from Egypt in the time of Moses!

30-31: These key chapters are particularly full and vivid regarding the sequence of events to come about in the "latter days," and the establishment of the much expected new covenant with the restored Twelve Tribes of Israel.

Hosea 1-3: The Lost Tribes become "not My people," losing their identity and their knowledge of God and turning to paganism ("days of the Baalim," through they number as the sands of the sea (1:10-11; 2:13). They remain in this state for "many days" but return to Judah and to their God in the "latter days." Once again their return is associated with the appearance of the Davidic Messiah (1:11; 3:4-5).

DAN IS GERMANY & DENMARK, Switzerland, Austria, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein

“Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.”

DAN: #1835 Dan {Dawn} judge. From #1777 diyn {deen} a straight course, to sail directly. To plead the cause, content, execute, to act as a judge, minister judgment, requite, vindicate, govern, strive, to be at strife, quarrel. All these things reflect the pattern for Dan's people, which shows up in more modern times as the nations of Germany and Denmark.

            Most people remember Germany by the fascism state, which took place under Hitler. Fascism is a system of government that has ruthless and strict social and economic controls over its people. Fascism is generally always headed by a dictator on one hell of an ego trip. This isn't good for the nation or the people, and usually ends in war and much bloodshed. 'Dan' seems to go to extremes whenever he does things – to the point of being radical.
           
These ten 'toes', I mean Germanic nations, emerged out of the eastern part of the Carolingian Empire. This situation with the unHoly Roman Empire ‘beast’ lasted until Napoleon put an end to it in 1806. Is it any wonder that Dan's name was omitted from the list of tribes in the book of Revelation? This unHoly Roman Empire was probably the evilest thing that ever existed on the face of the earth bar none. Dan, what were you thinking – talk about a devilish beast, listen to this:

            “Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.” Both Denmark and Germany have had very power armies in the past, but the role Germany played throughout the Dark Ages, and not forgetting the years from 1930-1945, is inexcusable to say the least. For shame. Dan needs to redeem himself for sure. There I go judging Dan, must be a couple family lines from the tribe of Dan running through my veins.

            Dan the Serpent: The serpent and the swastika are said to be siblings; the serpent as the darker side of power in the Universe, the swastika represents that force in motion.

            Gen 30:6 And Rachel said, God hath judged me, and hath also heard my voice, and hath given me a son: therefore she called his name Dan, so the name ‘Dan’ means, to judge.

            Dan as the judge: “Germany's judiciary independence and extensive responsibilities reflect the importance of the rule of law in the German system of government. Principles of Roman law form the basis of the German judicial system and define a system of justice that differs fundamentally from the common law system, in which courts rely on precedents from prior cases. In Germany, courts look to a comprehensive system of legal codes. The codes delineate somewhat abstract legal principles, and judges must decide specific cases based on those standards. Given the importance of complex legal codes, judges must be particularly well trained. Indeed, judges are not chosen from the field of practicing lawyers. Rather, they follow a distinct career path. At the end of their legal education at university, all law students must pass a state examination before they can continue on to an apprenticeship that provides them with broad training in the legal profession over two years. They then must pass a second state examination that qualifies them to practice law. At that point, the individual can choose either to be a lawyer or to enter the judiciary. Judicial candidates start working at courts immediately, however they are subjected to a probationary period of up to four years before being appointed as judges for lifetime”.  Germany puts a high emphasis on its judicial system. 

Dan dares to judge the Vatican: Germany is the home of the Reformation launched by Martin Luther in the early 16th century. The Reformation began in Germany when Luther stood in defiance of the Pope. Germany has always been instrumental in theological movements beginning during the 'unHoly' Roman Empire and all up through Christianity.

            Again Dan judges: In terms of ideology, Nazism combines racism, nationalism, anti-semitism and anti-communism. The Nazis believed in the superiority of an Aryan master race [so does the Bible], advocated individual leadership in a strong, centralized government, and claimed to be defending Germany and the entire Western world against communism and Jewish subversion.

            Dan is the fifth son of Jacob. His mother was Bilhah, Rachel's handmaid. The name 'Bilhah' means 'troubled.' Bilhah must have been deeply troubled when Dan played his pattern to the hilt.

CELTIC-ISRAELITE COMMONALITIES

Words with same or similar meanings abound; for instance the Hebrew word for holy in common usage according to Halacha (Jewish law) is Kasher. The word in Manx Gaelic for hallowed or holy is Casherick.

THE REMNANT OF JUDAH REVEALED IN GERMANY

 It wasn't just ten-tribed Israel, but also the descendants of 200,000 Judahites. Therefore a remnant of Judah was, and still is, present in Germany today, those who did not move on to the West. Not every Saxon, not every Jute, left Germany to come to the Isles.

The lion is a symbol of Judah. The white horse is identified with the tribe of Dan and, in symbolism, with the coming Christ. It is all over the arms of Saxony and Hanover. There is the heraldry which proclaims the remnant of Judah revealed in Germany.

Those heraldic emblems are all over the city of Hanover in spite of it being heavily bombed and badly destroyed in World War II. When I was on a trip there, I was taken on a heritage trail. All over the town, on arches and on buildings and on gates, the heraldry of the lion and the unicorn and all the heraldry of our Royal coat-of-arms are apparent. Even Hitler never erased that, and even today the parliament building for Lower Saxony (the provincial parliament in Hanover) has that Royal coat-of-arms.

To continue, if Judah is the lion symbol in heraldry, why do the Germans have the double-headed eagle as their symbol? That was on the Kaiser's banner, the House of Hohenzollern, and it was associated with the Third Reich.

Just as Judah's symbol is the lion, so the Assyrian symbol is the double-headed eagle, symbolising the division of the Germans. Double-headed eagles are associated with the Assyrian-originated peoples, and yet there are also the lions symbolising the Judah peoples.

In Baden, or Wurttemberg, the coat-of-arms displays three black lions on a gold background on the main shield, and then there are six smaller shields for the six component parts of that province. Wurttemberg itself has another golden lion rampant of the House of Judah upon a black background.

The modern coat-of-arms of Bavaria (which is not a predominantly Israelite part of Germany) incorporates the two golden lions of the Palatinate into its heraldry because Bavaria includes the territory once called the Palatine or Palatinate.

The city coat-of-arms for Bremen is two golden lions and the State coat-of arms for Bremen contains a lion with a helmet holding a key in his hand. Could it be that it is, as Revelation says, the Key of David, the Philadelphia church era?

The old Grand Duchy of Hesse has the symbol of a blue lion; he is crowned and carrying or drawing forth a sword. Out of the mouth of the lion of Judah, the conquering King Jesus comes forth with what? A two-edged sword, which is the Word of God. The heraldry is all there.

In Hamburg, the heraldry depicts two golden lions upholding a castle upon a white shield. In Westphalia, the emblem is the white horse; and in Mecklenburg it is the bull's head, the bull being the symbol of the Angles, just as much as the white horse was that of the Saxons.

Who could possibly deny the presence of Judah in Germany when we know Germany to have been the land of the Protestant Reformation? Who among our Israelite people, preachers and writers, would have the audacity to stand up and to say that Martin Luther or Melanchthon or any of the other great reformers that came out of Germany were Assyrians? These Lutherans who broke the chains of Rome - who would dare to say that they were Assyrians? God reveals His truth to Israel; these people were of true Israelite extraction.

We are well aware of our own John Wycliffe. We know how he translated the Bible into English and shook the power of Rome towards the end of the 1300's, and that is why, ahead of time, he was called the “Morning Star of the Reformation”. We are well aware of the pre-Reformation witnesses, like the Waldensians in Italy (the Israel of the Alps), John Huss and Jerome of Prague.

When the witnesses of Bible prophecy stood upon their feet in the person of Martin Luther in 1517, and he nailed the Theses to the church door in Wittenberg, where did it happen? It happened in Germany. Why did it happen in Germany? 

The witnesses, of course, were God's true Israel and God's true Church. In May 1514, the Pope of Rome sent a letter all over Rome, Europe, and what they called Christendom. He said that if anybody had a controversy with Rome, or did not agree with what the Holy Roman Catholic Church taught, let them come to the church of St. John Lateran in Rome, let them stand up and present their case.

Nobody in their right mind would have gone, because the Pope had given a safe conduct previously to Jerome of Prague and others and then burned them. So nobody went: no Hussites; no Waldenses; and no Albigenses - nobody turned up. And the Pope of Rome had a great celebration. They said, “The Witnesses are dead! No one opposes us. It is on record that no one opposes us anymore.” For three and a half years (that is three and a half days in prophecy) Rome ruled supreme.

Then, three and a half years to the day in Wittenberg in Germany, a little Saxon monk called Martin Luther nailed a parchment to the church door on 31st October, Reformation Day, and the Protestant Reformation began!

Even the Pope said that the ancient witnesses, Huss and Jerome, had come alive again in the person of Martin Luther. Where did the work of reformation begin? It began in Germany. How can we label all those people Assyrians? God would have put the Assyrians in the outer court. But no, God sent the awakening there.

Somebody once asked me, "Why did He begin it in Germany?" I will tell you why; in Zechariah's prophecy (ZECHERIAH 12:7), it says this: "The LORD also shall save [or bring salvation to] the tents of Judah first…”, and it was Martin Luther who first proclaimed, in Saxon Germany, the great Truth of Justification by Faith alone. The two foundational beliefs of the Reformation are the doctrine of Justification by Faith and the prophetic identity of the Popes of Rome as Antichrist. Germany was the first place in which Luther would publicly burn the Papal Bull, the letter of excommunication.

At Worms in Germany, Luther declared, "My conscience is captive to the Word of God, here I stand; I can do no other.” At Wartburg Castle he would produce his copy of the Bible in German. It would be to Germany that Tyndale (our own great reformer who gave us the English Bible - the little book of the prophecy of REVELATION 10) would flee from England, persecuted by the Roman Church. He had to seek refuge in Germany to get his little book printed. It was from Germany that the Bibles were smuggled back into Britain in bales of cloth. The Church of Rome was mocked, because they paid a huge amount of money to buy up a whole lot of the Bibles in order to burn them. With all the money received, the Reformers printed even more Bibles, of better condition and better quality - this all happened in Germany!

In 1529, in Germany, at the Diet of Spiers, the word Protestant first came into being, and the famous Augsburg Confession of the Lutheran Church was framed and put into writing. So how dare we deny the existence of the Remnant of Judah revealed in Germany?

As well as the Lutherans, the Calvinistic groups were also flourishing there. Some of you will have heard of a group called the Moravians. The Moravian church was in a part of old Bohemia, now Czechoslovakia, on the German frontier. They were really persecuted during the Thirty Years' War.

They fled and took refuge in Germany proper in 1628. Then the Moravian church came under the protection and inspiration of the great German Christian, Count Ludwig von Zinzendorf, who developed the Moravian Church. The Moravians migrated out of Germany (in fact we have two Moravian churches in Belfast). The Moravian people also went to America, as missionaries to the West Indies and mostly to Georgia. It was in Georgia that John Wesley, who was still seeking the assurance of Salvation, came under the influence of the Moravians, and that was really his starting point to finding assurance of faith. The Moravians in America went on, in 1740, to develop a large settlement in a place called Bethlehem in Pennsylvania. So the Moravian Church originated in the remnant of Judah found in Germany.

The dragon was wroth with the woman Israel, the remnant of Israel's seed in Germany, just as the remnant in France, the Huguenots, suffered terribly by the wars of religion and the persecuting powers of Rome. And what was the result of that? The woman (Israel) was given the wings of an eagle to flee to a place of safety. The French Huguenots, a remnant of Reuben, fled to South Africa, where there is a memorial depicting that fact. The remnant of Judah in Germany began to move westward towards the United States of America from the 17th century onwards. So many of them migrated, in point of fact, that there are as many Americans today who can claim German descent as there are who can claim English descent. They were not Assyrians!

As that Judah/Israel element migrated out of Germany, the Assyrian/Gomer element did not, and so over the centuries they have come to predominate whilst the Israelite element has become a minority or a remnant. When the United States was actually established, it was only by a narrow majority vote of one in the Continental Congress that the Americans chose English rather than German to be their national language. That is something that is not well known.

There was constant migration to the United States. The Church of the Brethren of the Baptists fled first from Westphalia to Holland because of persecution, and then they went from Holland and settled the area, around Germantown in Pennsylvania. Then a group of Lutherans moved into Georgia, and in 1839, under the leadership of a minister called Walther, they went to Missouri. Persecuted Lutherans, who were known as the Salzbergers, were driven into Prussia and from Prussia they fled to America.

Large numbers then sailed from Saxony and arrived in New Orleans in 1839. They journeyed up the Mississippi to St. Louis and there Walther built Trinity Church and began the first Lutheran magazine. Another group went into Michigan, and eventually they were grouped together under what is called today the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod. To this day they still adhere to the confession that the Pope of Rome is the Antichrist of prophecy.

Nobody's going to tell me that those were Assyrians - they had to be the Israelite remnant.

It is interesting to note that the name Judah means ‘Praise'. Judahites were a praising people, so it is not surprising, therefore, to find that the remnant of Israel found in Germany would also be a musical people. Out of the Reformation and Martin Luther's work not only came the Word of God, but many beautiful hymns. We all should be acquainted with the great Reformation hymn that Luther wrote, “A Mighty Fortress is our God, the bulwark never failing”, based on PSALM 46. If any of you are musically inclined, especially if you like Classical Music, think of Johann Sebastian Bach (a German), Beethoven (born in Bonn, a German), Brahms (born in Hamburg), Handel (Handel's “Messiah”! - Handel came from Saxony), Schumann (from Saxony) and so on. Composer after composer proved to be of the German people, mostly during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Judah means “praise”, therefore they are a praising, musical people.

MAPPING ISRAEL'S MIGRATIONS: ISRAEL'S ANCIENT HIGHWAYS INTO EUROPE

Towards the north on the Gerard Valk map, the visitor sees the North Sea labeled, "Danicarum Mare," or "Sea of the tribe of Dan." Similarly, the modern state of Denmark is here labeled, "Danos," yet another reference to the Biblical tribe of Dan. The late great antiquarian scholar, Dr. Cyrus Gordon, wrote of the migrations of this tribe in his study, "The Mediterranean Factor In The Old Testament." He wrote:

"The role of Dan is of particular importance. Judges 5:17 informs us that Dan was a sea people, dwelling in ships. Dan is related onomastically to Danan [and] Danuna with the suffix - an [or] -on. The group must have been large, for it is well nigh ubiquitous. The Greeks called themselves Danaoi; Ramses III repulsed the Denyen (Danuna/Danaoi/Danites) ...in the eighth century B.C., Cilicia was dominated by Danunites ...and there is reason to believe that waves of Danaoi/Danites migrated to the westernmost reaches of Europe, bringing with them their name." (p.21) Cilicia is located in southeast Asia Minor, south of the Black Sea.

Flowing into the north end of the Caspian Sea is the Volga River, with its tributaries the Jeruslan River and Samara River. The near identity of these terms with "Jerusalem" and "Samaria" is obvious. Just to the east is the Ural River,with a town called "Sacharnaia," the "land of the Saka" or Saxons.

The Caucasus Mountain region is another gateway to Europe from the Mid-east, and Israel place-names are found there, too, in such names as Sakartvelo and Sachkhere. 

JUDAH IN PROPHECY

The Jews who live among the various nations of the Ten Tribes of Israel tend to be in positions of influence and power, and they control much of these nations' wealth. Because of their power and wealth there is a considerable amount of enmity between those of the other tribes and the Jews, yet there is a feeling of kinship toward the Jews of the nation of Israel.

A “One House” or “Two House” Movement?

Granted that some do talk about the two groups becoming “one new man,” but in the end, most of them see a difference in the two people groups who love the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They are the ones who are always calling them “Jews and Gentiles.” On the other hand, we refer to the people as being one reunited and restored house of Israel! We teach that Israel is called to be one house in Messiah! (Eph 2:11-22).

We do recognize that, as far as physical backgrounds are concerned, in the earth there are different groups of people. However, when we come together in Messiah Yeshua’s New Covenant, there can be no difference. We see this principle laid out in the promise the Father made through Jeremiah:

“‘Behold, days are coming,’ declares YHVH, ‘when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, not like the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them…. But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days,’ declares YHVH, ‘I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. They will not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, “Know YHVH,” for they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,’ declares YHVH, ‘for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more’” (Jer 31:31-34).

Phoenicia

"In Greek eyes the Phoenicians-proper were the same as the Israelite Tribes who inhabited the Phoenician coast. The Phoenicians-proper appear to have referred to themselves as ‘Tyrians,’ or ‘Sidonians,’ etc., or as ‘Canaanites,’ and so they are termed in the Bible. The Romans called the Phoenicians ‘Poenes’ or ‘Puni,’ and the ‘Punic Wars’ were those fought between the Phoenician-descended Carthaginians and the Romans. The Puni (or Phuni, descendants of Phua) were an important clan in the Israelite Tribe of Issachar (Numbers 26: 23,24), which, as related, at one stage conquered the important ‘Phoenician’ mother city of Sidon. ‘Of the sons of Issachar after their families…of Pua, the family of the Puni…’ (Numbers 26:23).

"The Hebrew name Pua (Phua or ‘Puni’) is derivable from a root denoting a certain plant used to make red dye. The name ‘Phoenician’ has the same connotation. ‘Phoenix’ (from which the term ‘Phoenician’ is derived) is apparently Greek and is said to mean ‘red’ after one of the dyes the Phoenicians were famous for producing".

WHAT'S IN A NAME?

Pliny  wrote: "The Sakai were among the most distinguished people of Scythia, who settled in Armenia, and were called Sacae-Sani."

The Normans were Israelites of the Tribe of Benjamin who formerly lived in Asia Minor.

The Anglo-Saxons.As this section of ancient Israel crossed over into Britain they established seven principal kingdoms known as the Heptarchy - the Land of the Seven Kingdoms.The Saxons settled Essex, Sussex, and Wessex. The Aeglae settled Northumbria, Deira, and Mercia. The Angae settled East Anglia. But again the Manassehites were divided in East Anglia - North and South just as they were in Palestine and also on the shores of the Caspian Sea.A good map of Englarid will show that East Anglia is divided into two main sections, Norfolk and Suffolk, which means North Folk and South Folk.These seven became the English,all of them being Israelites under different sectional names.

Inasmuch as the Eglah, heifer of the wild ox, was Ephraim's heraldic device during Israel's encampment in the wilderness and in Palestine, it was only natural that the Ephraimites should call themselves the Aeglae when they left Palestine, and wear the headdress of a bull as we have already mentioned. It was also a natural development that the bull should become a part of the English heraldic device today, and that they should even be called John Bull.The appearance of the lion and unicorn on the British Coat of Arms was no mere happenstance.

Deuteronomy 33:17 says, "His glory is like the firsting of his bullock, and his horns are like the horns of unicorns: with them he shall push the people together to the ends of the earth: and they are the ten thousands of Ephraim and the thousands of Manasseh."

This is why the Eglah - the bullock - has become identified with Johnny Bull England.

It is also interesting that the Lion is also a part of Britain's heraldic standard. "Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?" The lion was the standard of Judah. It is altogether fitting that the present Monarch of Britain, who is a direct descendant of the House of David, which came from the Tribe of Judah, should have the lion on her Royal Coat of Arms. Neither is it a mere accident that Jesus Christ, who one day will have the Throne of David turned over to Him, is called in Revelation "The Lion of the tribe of Judah."

Those who reject our Israel identity deny that the word "b'rith" means "covenant." We need only to refer them to the Jewish organization "B'nai B'rith" which means "Sons of the Covenant." Now if B'rith means "Covenant" when it is used with the word "B'nai," just why does this Hebrew word not mean "Covenant" when used with the Hebrew word "Ish?" Our opponents can dodge and hedge and heckle all they please but they can never change the meaning of these two Hebrew words. British means "Covenant Man." Every Britisher, whether in Britain, America, Australia, New Zealand, or elsewhere is under a covenant. He is a Covenant Man. The Lord said that Israel would "be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name."

The Tribe of Gad Today 

'I served my mission in Fresno California (Hmong Speaking) from 1995-97 and most Hmong church members (excluding one)that I knew with their patriarchal blessings were either from the tribes of Gad or Asher.'


The Tribe of Judah Today 


'I have a friend in Nova Scotia, Canada who is from the tribe of Judah. He was not brought up to know he was Jewish until he had his patriarchal blessing.'

Lands of the Dispersion: England and Scotland


In the article ‘Tracing the Dispersion’ in the February 1994 issue of the Ensign, Terry Blodgett provides considerable linguistic, historical, and cultural evidence for the influx of a people of Hebrew origin into the territories of the Germanic peoples, particularly the British and the Scandinavians as well as the Germans, Swiss, and Austrians, shortly after the 10 Tribes had been carried away captive into Assyria. He also notes another Hebrew sound shift centuries later, corresponding to the influx of Aramaic-speaking Hebrews after the final dispersion of the Jews from Palestine. These linguistic and historical evidences correlate very well with the evidences from missionary work in our era.


The original descendants of the British Isles, both and in more recently settled territories (like Australia, and to a lesser extent South Africa, where the British are heavily mixed with the Dutch), have always had a high rate of receptivity to the gospel. There are many traditions that Joseph of Arimathaea preached the Gospel in the British Isles. The ancient (non-Catholic) Christian Church in Britain was originally much more pure in its teachings and practices than the Church of Rome until ‘converted’ by the Catholic ‘Saint’ Augustine, a murderer and whoremonger. Arthurian legends are strongly reminiscent of a Zionist society and of Messianic scripture (‘the once and future king,’ there will be ‘no peace on earth’ until he comes again) and may represent the an altered form of gospel teachings. Many striking similarities between the Arthurian legends and the Gospel have been remarked upon for years. While the legends have undoubtedly undergone considerable change over time and lost some of their original clarity, the striking parallels with the gospel which have been preserved are impossible not to remark upon. It is very likely that the Savior appeared to people in the British Isles after his resurrection.

Northern Ireland: 0.54% (5400 of 1 million – mainly Scots and English, relatively few pure Irish)


Australia: 0.52% (96,000 of 18.3 million)


Scotland: 0.50% (25,000 of 5 million)

England: 0.26% (133,000 of 52 million)

Wales: 0.24% (7100 of 3 million)

The actual rates are much higher than shown here, since many members emigrated to the US. Many North American members claim Scottish, English, or Welsh heritage. Patriarchal blessings typically document that the strong presence of the blood of Ephraim, son of Joseph in the British Isles. Again, great are the promises of the Lord unto them who are upon the isles of the sea.


Church membership is much far higher among the English than among the Irish (0.06%). While there are many members with some Irish heritage, most of these individuals also have some English or Scottish heritage. It has also been noted in the United States, where 18-23% of individuals claim Irish ancestry, that pure Irish ancestry is surprisingly rare in the church (as are pure Greeks and to a lesser extent pure Italians). In all of these countries, many of those converted are actually foreigners. These data would lead one to believe that there is much less of the Blood of Israel among these groups.


In continental Europe, membership is led by Portugal (0.33%), Scandinavia (0.1%), and Switzerland (0.1%). The church in Portugal is relatively recent. While baptisms are high, activity is low and much remains to be seen. In the 19th century, conversions were very high in Scandinavia. Many lifelong church members in the U.S. have Scandinavian ancestry (how many LDS Sorensons, Andersons, and Christiansens do you know? The -son endings are Swedish and -sen is Danish). Spanish Fork is the largest community of Icelanders outside of Iceland. However, the LDS population in Scandinavia is only very slightly higher than it was 25 years ago due to the very low rate of baptisms and a small trickle of emigration. During this time period, LDS population has doubled, tripled, and even increased 10 fold or more in many other areas of the world.


WHERE DID THE TWELVE APOSTLES GO?

WHITE nations inhabiting some parts of western Barbary and Numidia.” What white nation was driven from the western shores of western Asia? The House of Israel! 

WHERE DID JAMES, SON OF ALPHAEUS, PREACH?
“The Spanish writers generally contend, after the death of Stephen he came to these WESTERN parts, and particularly into SPAIN (some add BRITAIN and IRELAND) where he planted Christianity”

Note it. Yet another apostle sent to the lost sheep of the House of Israel ends in the British Isles - in IRELAND as well as in Britain! Eusebius, in his third book of “Evangelical Demonstrations”, chapter 7, admitted that the apostles “passed over to those which are called the British Isles.” Again he wrote: “Some of the Apostles preached the Gospel in the British Isles.” Could anything be plainer? Even in Spain James spent some time. Why Spain? From ancient times Spain was the high road of migration from the eastern Mediterranean Sea to the British Isles. The ancient royal House of Ireland for a time dwelt in Spain. The prophet Jeremiah passed through Spain into Ireland with Zedekiah’s daughters (Jeremiah 41:10; 43:6). Even today a vital part of the Iberian Peninsula - Gibraltar - belongs to the birthright tribe of Ephraim - the British!

ON THE SHORES OF THE CASPIAN SEA

Thomas also journeyed into Northwest India, east of Persia, where the “White Indians” dwelt. These “White Indians” - that is, whites living in India-were also known as “Nephthalite Huns”, in later Greek records. Any connection with the tribe of Naphthali? 

WHERE DID MATTHEW GO?

Matthew, Metaphrastes tells us, “went first into Parthia, and having successfully planted Christianity in those parts, thence travelled to Aethiopia, that is, the Asiatic Aethiopia, lying near India.” For some centuries this region of the Hindu Kush, bordering on Scythia and Parthia, was known as “White India.”


UNCOVERING SCANDINAVIAN ROOTS

In his scholarly-produced History of Sweden (Svearikes Historia), Dalin says "Shepherd-Scythians," called Vodiner or Budiner, came to the Swedish islands around 400 B.C. because of pressure from Philip and Alexander of Macedonia. He says another race joined them, which was a mixture of Scythians, Greeks and Hebrews. They were called Neuri. According to Dalin, they were the ancestors of the Finns, Lapps and Estonians.

Pliny says that the Sacae who settled in Armenia (south of the Black Sea) were named "Sacassani" (Book vi.19). They called their part of Armenia "Sacasena," which is nearly the same as Saxonia or Saxony. Ptolemy also mentions a Scythian people called "Saxones." The Anglo-Saxons are British ancestors.

The Enigma of the DNA Quest to find the Lost “Red Headed Israelites”

So today, in our era of modern science, do we have the technology to identity the Lost Israelites through DNA studies? The answer is yes.Over the decades the science of DNA technology have resurrected the matrix of a genetic genealogy.  Now we can identity and compare the markers on the Y chromosome that is transferred genetically from father to son. What is known is that it remains stable for a long period of time. They share the same paternal ancestors even in the distant past eras to the modern era of today. 


The DNA markers can also be compared to population groups that have already been identified and then grouped into a classification system called “Haplogroups.” With this information, the population geneticists can begin to plot out migration patterns of large groups of closely identified peoples in the ancient world. What we have learned is the R1b (Haplotype 15) is the most common haplogroup in Western Europe today. 

This same R1b (Haplotype 15) DNA sequence is also identified with the Basques of Northern Spain that also includes the aboriginal first settlers in the British Isles. Here we find the ancient Welsh in the British Wales along the Atlantic Seaboards of England to the west. But they also include the Picts to the north in Scotland and the Irish to the west on the Isle of Ireland. 

They even seek to identify these populations with Paleolithic populations in Europe. These included those who took refuse from the Ice Age living in the caves of the Pyrenees Mountains between southern France and Northern Spain, called the Atlantic Modal Haplotype. 

A near relative of the R1b (Haplotype 15) is the R1b (Haplotype 35) who first came out of the Ice Age in the region of the Balkans under the Black Sea while others migrated across Asia Minor, into the steppes in the region of West Asia and the mountain and plain regions of southeastern Europe. 


Today we see this same Haplotype in the DNA of the Eastern Europeans.  These include the Armenians, the Greeks, Hungarians, the Romanians, and the Turks. These include also various groups of peoples in the region of the Caucasus Mountains just north of Georgia. Think again, these are all the regions of the habitation of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel. 

According to the geneticists, this same haplogroup is also imbedded in the populations in Western Europe where it is purported to have been spread by the Eastern Germanic Gothic tribes of the Ostrogoths, the Visigoths, the Alans, the Vandals, plus the Suevi in Switzerland. 

So when we begin to discover the ancient ancestors of the Lost Ten Tribes, we begin to uncover the unsettling but not surprising discovery that red hair is a clue of the identity of these ancient peoples. These were the tribes who continued to abominate the Holy Name of G-d as HaShem, the G-d of Israel spoke through the pen of the Prophet Ezekiel. 

What we will discover as we done in the past is that the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel are alive and well.

We discover that they, the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel are the ones who have provoked the wars of the nations, such as the 30 year war in 19th century Europe, World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Viet Nam War plus the wars against Saddam Hussein in Iraq, and the War in Afghanistan. 

They are the ones that are seeking hegemony and control of the world in order to create a One World Order, HaShem is giving them a bold warning; “Your days of creating chaos, anarchy, forcing your Hellenistic Pan-American-European culture upon the native populations of the world and foisting Grecian democracy upon them with the goal of getting their “vote” to the eventual One World Order is a about over. 

As the evidence looms over us, we are impelled to recognized that the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel still living in Europe who are the most vocal seeking to deny the rise of the prophetic future. This will be when a Greater Israel will bring Planet Earth and the whole universe into an era of unprecedented peace. 

Here will reign an era and a culture to match of spiritual enlightenment, when the Era of the Mashiach arrives to bring all mankind into the “Glory of G-d”. 

 The secret identity of the identity of these peoples have now been revealed in the genetic laboratories of Europe around the world. One of the most poignant clues to this fact is that the “Red Hair” genetic roots of the Y-Haplogroup of the R1b can now be perceived and identified as the “Lost Israelites” in Ancient Europe.

In the ancient script of the Torah, the first Man on earth, created in the Image of G-d was Adam. Adam, to etymologists, carries the meaning of red or ruddy man. What is known today; red hair is rare. Very Rare. It is virtually non-existent around the world except in Western Europe. 

We know in history that King David was a red-head so the Davidian lineage of King David would also carry its genetic makeup. Today the red hair is most dense in the western regions along the Atlantic seaboard of Europe and heading to the east towards Poland. It then extends from Poland all the way down over the Pyrenees Mountain through Basque in Northern Spain into central Spain.  We see it in the populations of southern Scandinavia, and Finland to the east heading over into the Volga region of Russia. 

Looking carefully at the maps, the highest density of red hair that is imbedded in over 10% of the population live along the western regions of Europe. This includes the western Atlantic seaboards of Ireland, the Northwestern sector of Scotland on the Isle of Britannia and the western regions of Great Britain in Wales. 

There is a greater density of over 10% of red hair clustering towards the western region of Denmark where the Tribe of Dan is located and in the southwestern region of Norway. This then extends down the coastline of the La Manche (English Channel) along the coastline of the Netherlands and Belgium and then further south to the peninsula of Brittany jutting out into the Atlantic and the Bay of Biscay.  Yes, we have to admit that red hair is it one the rarest and most unique of all the colored hairs in the world. It now has become a marker for the identity of the Lost Ten  Tribes of the House of Israel. 

Rarely in the ancient writings did the authors speak of the color of hair, but red hair was the exception.  According to Suetonius in “The Life of the Twelve Caesars”, the 8th Emperor of Rome, Vitellius was a redhead.  His name should be familiar to all with the knowledge of Jewish history. 

The Roman Emperor Vitellius was the last of the “Year of the Four Emperors”, when his claim to the Roman throne was challenged by the eastern Roman legions under the command of the Roman General Vespasian. These troops then proclaimed Vespasian the Roman Emperor while his troops were surrounding Jerusalem in siege. 

In the civil war that erupted, the defending legions of Vitellius were decisively defeated at the Second Battle of Bedriacum in Northern Italy and Vitellius was executed in Rome by the legions of Vespasian on the 22nd of December, 69 CE. And so today, the Emperors Vespasian and his son, Hadrian are indelibly tied in the Jewish history with the fall and destruction of Jerusalem and the Holy Temple of G-d on the Temple Mount. 

Is it not surprising that with the rise of the United States in America that three of the first seven American presidents were red headed Israelites; Thomas Jefferson, 3rd American president, James Monroe, the 5th American president and Andrew Jackson, the 7th American president for their ancestral lineages came from the Isle of Britannia, no doubt including Welsh lineages plus Irish and Scottish. 

The Divine Hand of G-d allowed them to build their own imperial states and world empires. These included; Portugal, Spain, Great Britain, Netherlands, France and even Germany.  Their dominions were scattered around the entire world.  They even included the Scandinavian Vikings (Scythians) who left their imprint of discovering the North American Continent even before Columbus. 

It was the Israelite Scythian Vikings that paved a pathway of dominion all the way to Constantinople while the Danes under King William the Great took over the Isle of Brittany long after the Anglo-Saxons (Engle-Sacae or the “sons of Isaac”) had pushed the Tribes of Ephraim and Dan over to the Atlantic coastline of Wales. 

The major region where the populous Lost Ten Tribes were sent into exile included the region of Khurasan, which includes Northern Iran, Eastern Afghanistan and Western Pakistan. The Pashtun Tribes of Bani-Israel are the remnant of these tribes who still live in this region. 

The Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel were called the “Great Wanderers”. They then are identified in the routes of the ancient wanderings of this Rb1 Haplogroup as they migrated along with a more ancient subclade called the R1b L23. They settled as they migrated into Southern Russia and Ukraine along the northern banks of the Black Sea and according to the historical texts they rarely amalgamated with the local indigenous populations but stayed rather intact and pure to their lost Hebrew tribal identity. 

They also left their imprint upon the landscape of the world as they traversed across the globe. This is first suspected to be the route of the first of the wanderings with the Tribe of Dan, who everywhere this tribe migrated they left the name of “Dan” on the names of the rivers in which they passed over; the Don (Dan) River, the Dnieper (Danieper) the Dniester (Daniester) and the Danube as they then floated north upwards towards Denmark (Danmark). 

Here came then the entry of the first White People now identified with the R1b Haplogroup. Within this group came also the first “Redheads” into the region of Gaul, or the mid to northern regions of Europe today.  As the Celtic Cimmerians, their final resting place was to be in the Isles of the West.

The peoples most associated with the red hair were the Celtic and the Cymric people who have now been identified with the La Tène villages in Central and Northern Europe. It is understandable that the researchers and scholars of the La Tène peoples do not have consensus of opinion of who these people were. They arrived in central Gaul in the 5th century BCE, expanded in the 4th century to Hispania (Spain) the Balkans and over into Asia Minor, but not necessarily in that order. 

Instead, they arrived from the East as the Lost Ten Tribes. They became known as the Gauls or the Gallic peoples. In fact it was the Lost Tribe Gallic general, Brennus who first reached the city of Rome in the 4th century and took possession of it. 

It was in the 8th century BCE that the Samaritans of the House of Joseph were first called the Lost Tribes of the House of Israel for they were collectively ruled by the Tribe of Joseph whose descendants were the Tribe of Ephraim and Manasseh. They were cast out of their homelands by the Assyrians and sent into exile in the land of Khorasan, by the Caspian and the Black Seas by the G-d of Israel. This is done for predominately one reason; their apostasy, corruption, and rebellion against the Almighty One of Israel for rebelling against the dynastic rulers of Kings David and Solomon, refusal to worship in the Temple of Solomon during the Jewish festivals, and refusal to accept the Mechoquek of Judah, the Jewish rabbanim to be the legal Torah jurists for all 12-Tribed Israel. 

These tribes were called the Northern Kingdom of Israel. The central governance of their kingdom was the tribal land of Samaria, where the modern Palestinians people are trying to take this land to be the “Nation of Palestine”, but there is one problem. This “deed” to the titled of this land has already been land has already been promised by the G-d of Israel to be for the restoration of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel (Ezekiel 36).

These tribes were instead exiled to the land that today encompasses the region of Northern Iran, Eastern Afghanistan and Western Pakistan populated by the largest tribe of the region; the Bani-Israel people called the Pashtuns Tribal peoples. 

Our heart and minds begin to ponder as we remember that the Israelite Pashtuns are prophetically destined by the God of Israel to become a military force that will cause the “nations to stumble” while at the same time contain the forces of evil.  Are the “nations that stumble” the same nations the will bring the forces of evil?  Are we seeing a role reversal, where the allied powers of the west that claim to bring peace and freedom with democracy will actually be the forces of the Anti-Messiah called in Islam as the Dajjal? 

According to the Islamic messianic imagery of the world at the time of the end, the forces of evil will come from those global powers that are seeking to take all free will and independence away from all mankind so that they can no longer worship the Monotheistic God of the Universes. 

The “army of the Mahdi” will begin what appears to be a new Islamic Jihad.  As they travel from the Afghani region of the Pashtuns in Afghanistan, we find an amazing event happening. The Mahdi and his military followers appear to be traveling southwest towards the City of Jerusalem.  This will be the same but opposite direction that they were taken into captivity 2,700 years ago by the Assyrian Empire.  This time, they will plant the black flags of the Jihad in the “Holy House”, the “Baitul Maqdas” the “Noble Sanctuary” known as the “Al-Aqsa Mosque” or the “Mosque of Omar”. 

The Prophet (PBUH or “peace be upon him who reads the words of the Prophet) said: "We (I and my family) are members of a household that Allah (SWT) has chosen for them the life of the Hereafter over the life of this world; and the members of my household (Ahlul-Bayt – “the household of Muhammad) shall suffer a great affliction and they shall be forcefully expelled from their homes after my death. 

Then there will come people from the East carrying Black Flags, and they will ask for some good to be given to them, but they shall be refused service; as such, they will wage war and emerge victorious, and will be offered that which they desired in the first place, but they will refuse to accept it till they pass it to a man (The Mahdi) from my family (Ahlul-Bayt – “People of the House of Muhammad) that appears to fill the Earth with justice as it has been filled with corruption. So whoever reaches that (time) ought to come to them even if crawling on the ice/snow since among them is the Vice-regent of Allah (Khalifatullah) al-Mahdi." (Sunan Ibn Majah) 

Hadhrat (“Great Presence”) Abu Hurairah (R.A.) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said - "(Armies carrying) Black Flags will come from Khurasan. No power will be able to stop them and they will finally reach Eela (Baitul Maqdas) where they will erect their flags." (Trimdi) 

Yet, it appears that the forces of the Pashtuns Israelites will be diverted first to Istanbul (Constantinople) before they turn to face the arrival of the international forces of the anti-Messiah, the Islamic Dajjal.  It is not certain as to which of these military engagements will occur first and their sequence of events; fall of Istanbul (Constantinople), the war with the Anti-Messiah (Dajjal) or the entry into Jerusalem and planting their black war flags on the Temple Mount. 

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Apostle (may peace he upon him) saying: “You have heard about a city the one side of which is in the land and the other is in the sea (Constantinople). They said: Allah's Messenger, yes. Thereupon he said: “The Last Hour would not come (time of the end) unless seventy thousand persons (warriors) from Bani lshaq (Sons of Isaac) would attack it.” 

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Apostle (may peace he upon him) saying: “When they would land there, they will neither fight with weapons nor would shower arrows but would only say:  “There is no god but Allah and Allah is the Greatest,” that one side of it would fall.” (Saheh Muslim) 

Strange as it may be, the Mahdi may be bringing home the most fierce and powerful of the warrior tribes from the Afghan and Pakistani region, the 41 million member Pashtun Tribes of Bani Israel; the Lost Tribes of the House of Israel.  They had resisted successfully, like no other warrior tribes, the global assault of the economic internationalists of the west.  Will HaShem, the G-d of Israel begin the redemption process at this time? 

This concept may have a certain validity.  When we look back into the annals of time, we realize that the redemption of the Jewish people who were in exile under the dominion of the Babylonians by King Nebuchadnezzar, came at the hands of the ruler of the Medes and the Persians called Cyrus the Great. 

 “Cyrus was a Pasargadae Israelite who now as the emperor of Medes and the Persians returned back to the lands of Media seeking to tame and subdue his exiled cousins whether he knew that or not, and their restless and warring urges for rebellion.  This was predicated by the historical facts that the rebellious Lost Ten Tribes of Israel were exiled by the Assyrians from their tribal “Land of Promise” for their continuous rebellion against the Almighty One of Israel. 

It appears that the Pashtun Lost Israelites will be the home and the bastion of the 70,000 Islamic warriors that will go and fight the Anti-Messiah at the “End of Days.” How this will morph together into one, we also do not know. Only vignettes of that culmination of the present age and the rise of the future era of the Messiah, have been given to the prophets of old. The rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is only the beginning of that prophetic drama. 


How they mesh and morph into the future has already been holographic preserved by the forces of the Divine. How we approach that day will depend on how transparent our mental filter toward HaShem has been nurtured so that indwelling spirit of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) can dwell within us to guide and direct our lives in our near future.
