"GENESIS. The Book of Beginnings"

Our studies of Genesis revealed to us the following: Mankind was told to be fruitful and multiply and conquer the earth. Adam and Eve sinned and all of humanity was punished. A Deluge covered the earth from which only Noah and his family survived. All peoples alive today are descended from the three sons of Noah. Abraham was descended from Shem the son of Noah. God chose Abraham to be the instrument of His Will, to be blessed and to bring a blessing upon all peoples of the earth (12:2-3, 18:18-19, 22:18 cf. 24:4). Abraham was promised that his seed would be extremely numerous (15:5, 22:17). He was assured that he would inherit the Land of Canaan (15:7, 17:8) from the Nile to the Euphrates (15:8). Nations and Kings would emerge from Abraham (17:6). Sarah the wife of Abraham was blessed that she would become a mother of nations and "kings of peoples" would come from her (17:16, 21): This means the monarchs of several nations ruling at one and the same time, such as the monarchs of Western European countries do now. Only Isaac the son of Abraham would inherit the covenant of Abraham (17:19,21:12). One of the purposes of the promises was that through the blessings they would be enabled to do justice and judgment (18:19). After Abraham was tested with the "binding" (Akeda) of Isaac everything about the blessings became unconditional (22:16) apart from inheriting the land that remained contingent upon Monotheism and obedience. Abraham was told that his seed would inherit the "gate of his enemies" (22:17 cf. 24:60). Isaac married Rebecca who it was predicted would become the mother of "thousands of ten thousands" (24:60) and that her seed would possess "the gate of those who hate them" (24:60). These prophecies meant that the promised seed would possess international thoroughfares and vantage points of strategic importance as the USA and Britain (and only they) have done and still do. Isaac was given all the Land of Canaan (26:3). Isaac was to be the ancestor of innumerable descendants through whom all the world would be blessed (24:4, 32:12).

         Isaac fathered twins, Esau and Jacob (25:24). Esau was the older. Rebecca had been told that the elder would serve the younger (25:23). Esau sold his birthright to Jacob (25:33). Jacob received the blessing of the firstborn from his father Isaac (27:27). Jacob was promised a healthy climate, agricultural plenty and mineral riches (27:28 cf. the blessing to Joseph 49:25) and that he would be the master of his brethren and rule over nations (27:29). Jacob was to receive the blessings of Abraham and to inherit the Land (28:4, 35:12). His seed was to spread all over the earth (28:14). Jacob married Leah and Rachel (29:30). His firstborn was Reuben (29:32), then came Simeon (29:33) and Levi (29:34), then Judah (29:35). Rachel gave her handmaiden, Bilhah, to Jacob who begat Dan (30:6) and Naphtali (30:8). Zilpah the handmaiden of Leah was the mother of Gad(30:11) and Asher (30:13). Reuben found mandrakes (30:14) and gave them to Leah who hired the attentions of her husband Jacob and bore Issachar (30:18) and after that Zebulon (30:20).  Rachel bore Joseph (30:24) who is the vanquisher of Edom meaning Germany or Europe in general. Only Britain and the USA have proved that they are capable of fulfilling the task of Joseph. Jacob fled from Laban and headed towards the Land of Canaan. An angel wrestled with Jacob (32:24) whom he overcame and received the name "Israel" (32:28). Jacob was promised that a nation and a company of nations and kings would come from him (35:11). Benjamin was born and Rachel died (35:18). Israel (i.e. Jacob) gave his son Joseph a coat of many colors and this made his brothers jealous (37:3). Joseph was sold into Egypt where he became the virtual ruler of the land and saved the house of his father from famine. He also saved the Land of Egypt and other lands. Judah through Tamar begat Pharez (38:29) and Zarah (38:30). Joseph married Asenath daughter of Potiphera priest of On (41:50) and begat Manasseh (41:51) whose name means "delegated responsible representation" such as that of the USA. The second son of Joseph was Ephraim (41:52) whose name implies an aristocratic system such as that found in Britain. Joseph was reconciled to his brothers who went down to Egypt with all their families. The sons and grandsons of Israel numbered seventy souls. The names of the sons and grandsons (ch.46) are similar to the names of descendants of Israelite Tribes who populated much of Western Europe. Jewish tradition and Arab legends trace the Lost Ten Tribes to Western Europe.

         Before he died Jacob blessed Joseph (48:3) and made Ephraim and Manasseh full-fledged tribes in their own right (48:5-6). Ephraim and Manasseh would became a multitude in the midst of the earth and the name of Jacob be called upon them and the name of his fathers Abraham and Isaac (48:16). This means primarily that the essence of the forefathers would be expressed through the sons of Joseph. It has a secondary meaning that their very names would recall the forefathers. Abraham was known as "the Hebrew" (14:13) and the early inhabitants of Britain called themselves and were termed by others "Iberi" meaning "Hebrews". Names given to the Scythians and to the Saxons who settled England were derived from the name Isaac. The name "Jacob" is recalled in the Union Jack of Britain meaning the Uniting of Jacob, and in the nickname "Yanki" which is short for Jacob. The |Scottish call themselves and are called by others "Jock" which is a form of "Jake" and a shortened version of "Jacob".

         Ephraim would be greater than Manasseh. Ephraim would become a multitude of nations (48:19) "malo hagoim" (i.e. fullness or completeness of the nations)and rule over other peoples. Manasseh would also become great after Ephraim (48:19). Jacob blessed all of his sons concerning their destiny in the Latter Times (49:1). Reuben (France) would be unstable and attempt to conquer the Holy Land. Simeon and Levi would be policemen (49:5) like the Irish in America. Judah would keep the law and teach his brethren who would acknowledge the righteousness of Judah (49:8). Judah would be like an old lion. Judah (unlike the other tribes) would always be recognizable as descended from Israel. Zebulon would dwell on the seashores (49:13) as the Dutch descendants of the Sabalingoi ("People of Zebulon") do. Issachar would be neutral and landlocked in a mountainous area (49:14) like the Swiss. Dan would be a judge of his people (49:16). Gad would become a troop of "Goths" (49:19) who settled in Sweden.   Asher would eat dainties and enjoy riches (49:2). Naphtali was to become like a hind in Scandinavia (49:21). Joseph would establish overseas colonies (49:22) and would help Judah re-settle the land. Joseph would have his presence felt in many oceans. Joseph would be blessed with good climate, agricultural plenty and mineral wealth (49:25). Joseph would dwell in separate areas from his brothers (49:26) like the North Americans, British, Australians, New Zealanders, and South Africans do. Benjamin is likened unto a wolf (49:27) which was a symbol of the Normans who conquered England. The son of Manasseh was Machir (50:23) whose name in Hebrew embodies the concept of Capitalism. The name Machir evolved into the name of America. The symbol of the USA is a pyramid which was a symbol of Joseph.

         The blessings given unto the forefather had to be fulfilled in the Last Days. The only possible peoples who fulfill all the criteria mentioned in the Bible are the nations of Western Europe alongside Britain and her daughters and the USA.

Identity Characteristics From
the Book of Numbers

For a More Detailed Consideration of the Points Discussed Below see the Brit-Am Study
 The Lost Ten Tribes and the Books of Exodus, 
 Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy"

         Tribal Standards were set up around the Tabernacle (2:2). These standards in most cases depicted symbols similar to those still present on the national coats-of-arms of nations in which the relevant tribe is prevalent. The dominant colors of the Tabernacle and of the Israelite Nation were red, white, and blue. These three colors or at least two of them are still found on the flags of most Israelite-descended nations. Numbers (chapter two) describes the camping arrangements and Order of March. The geographical arrangement of the encampment is repeated at the present time in the way that Israelite nations are placed in regard to each other. The Order of March required that the Tribes move together in groups of three. These groupings had historical significance regarding traditional alliances and associations of the peoples concerned. Yair (Numbers 32:41) and the events around him were repeated in Irish mythology.

The Prophesies of Balaam
and the Identity of Israel

         We learned from the Prophesies of Balaam the following facts that help us confirm our beliefs concerning the identification of Israel in the  Last Days:

          The two halves of Israel (headed by Judah and Joseph) need to be united. Division is a curse (Numbers 23:7). They will exist separately from other nations (23:9). They will be so numerous that they cannot be counted (23:10). The blessings to Israel were unconditional (23:19, 23:20). They are likened unto a unicorn (23:22 24:8), and a lion (23:24). They will dwell in good fertile areas (24:6). Their descendants will be found in many waters (24:7), i.e. abiding by different Seas and Oceans. They will be very powerful (24:7), becoming a universal militarily might and a world power (24:8). Manasseh (symbolized by a unicorn) will become the most powerful tribe and the fullest expression of Israelite might (24:8). The Scottish coat-of-arms depicts two unicorns. Descendants of Manasseh through Scotsmen and Scots-Irish dominate the USA. The lion and unicorn representing Israel in the last days are recalled in juxtaposition (24:9) and they are represented on the British coat-of-arms. Israel shall conquer Edom (24:18) meaning Germany and Europe. In the Last Days there will be a Great Confrontation amongst all the major powers of the earth.

More Deuteronomy Characteristics of Israel

         The Hebrews were divided into administrative groups of tens, fifties, hundreds, and thousands (Deuteronomy 1:15) such as practiced by the Anglo-Saxons. The principle of equality before the law was enjoined upon them (1;17). The French and American revolutions were fought over this principle. The conquest of the land of the Amorites (1:2) lead to Israelites being referred to as "Amurru" by strangers and this term was also applied to the Cimmerians from whom many of the Celts descend; Yair of Manasseh (3:14) and the Iari who formed a powerful entity in the land of Israel are later traced to Ireland and Scotland. The Israelites were warned not to adopt pagan customs of the peoples around them (12:30). If they did, they would be exiled. The Ten Tribes indeed did practice idolatry and were exiled. Idolatrous customs described in the Bible remained with them in their places of exile and help identify them. The Israelites would lend to other nations and not borrow (Deuteronomy 15:6 28:12)  [but see our reservations on this matter]. "Arami" could be used as another name for Israel (26:5) and Arami according to Pliny was the original name applied to the Scythian Sacae from whom the Anglo-Saxons and kin derive. Each Tribe had its own peculiar uniqueness (29:10). Judah was known for keeping the law and Northern Israel with Joseph for social justice. If they did not keep the Law they would ultimately be cast into "another land" (29:28) meaning "The New World" (America) after it would be discovered by Europeans and given that title. The seventy clans of Israel are juxtaposed to the seventy nations of the earth (32:8).

The Identity of Individual Tribes

Regarding the identity of the Lost Ten Tribes the Blessing of Moses (Deuteronomy chapter 33) tells us that Joseph will be blessed with agricultural plenty and mineral resources (33:15-16). He will dwell in regions that are physically separated from the other Israelites (33:16).
Joseph is likened unto a young bull and to a unicorn (33:17). Joseph will defeat other peoples all over the world until the ends of the world. The Midrash tells us that in the Latter Times Annointed Leaders will arise from Menasseh, Ephraim, and Judah, along with the coming of Elijah.

Issachar will call other nations to the mountain for "sacrifices of righteousness" (Deuteronomy 33:19) just like mountainous Switzerland is an international place for gatherings and good purposes such as peace talks, the Geneva Conference, organizations like the Red Cross and so on.

Zebulon will feed on the abundance of the seas (33;19) just like Holland does and also find treasures in the sand like the Dutch-descended Boers of South Africa with their diamonds do.

Gad will be noted for the symbol a lion like that of Sweden and the characteristic use of an axe-like weapon (33:20) such as that which a branch of the Goths were noted for.<

Dan will be a young lion leaping from Bashan (33:22) which became another name from Scandinavia. The Danes represent that branch of Dan that went to Scandinavia and their symbol is a lion. Dan is also important in Wales and Ireland.

Asher will dip his foot in oil (33:24) which can mean petroleum and the North Sea petrol fields link areas associated with Asher.

All the peoples of Israel on the whole will be militarily powerful (Deuteronomy 33:27 33:29), enjoy relative security, agricultural bounty and healthy climates (33:28).

         These promised blessings are in the Bible. They are there in black and white. Most of them are quite clear even in simple English translation. The niceties of the Hebrew language and the oral traditions of the sages together with results of historical research further enhance the directness and forcefulness of the message. The Lost Ten Tribes of Israel are amongst the English-speaking peoples and related nations of Europe. The USA with Britain and her daughters embody the descendants of Joseph. In light of these researches no other explanation can be honestly proposed. For whatever reasons one may or may not be pleased with these results but they have to be faced up to.  Whatever conclusions one should draw from what the Bible is telling us needs to be discussed. Before discussion can begin the message should be spread and the word of truth internalized.
