Joseph Defeats Esau
of the Lost Ten Tribes
The Joseph Aspect
by Yair Davidiy
Biblical Evidence: The Joseph Aspect
The Lost Ten Tribes headed by Joseph
are destined to defeat Edom. Edom means the sons of Esau who dominate Germany
and other portions of Europe and possibly Japan as well. To identify The
Lost Ten Tribes headed by Joseph we must therefore seek a nation or group
of nations that has proven itself capable of the said feat in the past. The
nations of Britain and North America and their kin folk have done this. This
quality (like all other identifying characteristics) has to be considered
along with all other identifying characteristics that taken as a whole can
only indicate one specific group of peoples.
<<AND THEY SHALL DO IN
EDOM ACCORDING TO MINE ANGER>>: Tradition says that the seed of Joseph
will destroy Edom. The book of Obadiah is dedicated to this theme.
"AND I WILL
LAY MY VENGEANCE UPON EDOM BY THE HAND OF MY
AND THEY SHALL DO IN EDOM ACCORDING TO MINE ANGER AND ACCORDING TO MY FURY;
AND THEY SHALL KNOW MY VENGEANCE, SAITH THE LORD GOD."
Obadiah says that the House of Joseph
shall destroy the House of Esau.
Rabbinical sources identified Esau with Rome and with Germany and sometimes with Europe in general. The Talmud says that
only Joseph is capable of defeating
Esau. The sources do not say that all the Germans are from Esau but part of them, especially amongst elite leading
elements. The same sources also say
that the Germans are descended from Canaanites, from Gomer, from Togarmah, from Ashkenaz, and so on.
They are therefore a mixed people
like most other peoples. There was however a tradition that the ruling elements of Rome and Germany were descended
from Esau. Many Germans considered
themselves the descendants of Roman soldiers and identified with the Roman Empire. We must look for a nation that
has proven itself capable of defeating
Germany and this is what Britain and the USA did do in the Second World War.
The Commentary, "Ahavat Yehonatan", VaYishalch:
<You may ask, since the House of Jacob is fire they should be able to overcome Esau
alone. Why then should they need
Joseph? The answer is that the power of Jacob to fight against Esau is applicable only if Esau comes within
the boundaries of Israel. In order to offensively penetrate the borders of Esau we
need Joseph since the seed of Esau
falls only before the children of Rachel. The intention here is to Joseph who was born outside of the Land of Israel...>
Notes from the Commentary "Daat Sofrim": <Edom
is not a nation of one pure constitution. It is composed of the descendants of Esau and of
the Horites who intermingled together.
As a result of this foreign qualities were added to those that naturally belonged to Esau.
<The prophecy is apparently directed
not only to the period when this
people [Esau] dwelt in its land but also to the days when it would be assimilated amongst the peoples of the world
and fulfill its great role beginning
"AND THE HOUSE
OF JACOB SHALL BE A FIRE, AND THE HOUSE OF JOSEPH A FLAME, AND THE HOUSE
OF ESAU FOR STUBBLE AND THEY SHALL KINDLE IN THEM, AND DEVOUR THEM; AND THERE
SHALL NOT BE ANY REMAINING OF THE HOUSE OF ESAU; FOR THE LORD HATH SPOKEN
AND THE HOUSE OF ESAU FOR
STUBBLE: Daat Sofrim emphasizes (1) All prophesies of disaster and punishment are contingent
on the culprit not reforming himself
BUT if he changes his ways disaster can be averted. (2) It says that The House of Edom will be made
an end of, i.e. it will no longer
exist as an independent recognizable unit but many individuals from Edom will survive amongst other nations.
For more on this matter see the Brit-Am Commentary to the Book of Obadiah
and our publication, "Joseph
These sources show that Esau dominates Germany and realted nations and that only "Joseph" can defeat them. We therefore, in order to identify "Joseph", should search for a nation or group of nations that have proven such an ability within historical times.
