There frequently is a connection between family names and Tribal affinity
and we are not equipped at present to delve into this area.

a. Concerning genetic DNA rresearch:
We are trying to relate present genetic findings to our researches.
it is a slow and uncertain process but we believe the truth is on our side
and in the end we may come up additional substantial evidence with yet more
proof affirming Brit-Am.
b. Concerning Negative Reactions to the Brit-Am message:
Take things as they come. There is no sense in needlessly irritating
others. The truth of our beliefs will bear itself out as long as we
study and refresh them in our minds ourselves.
Lead good lives.
Present our findings in the best way possible to those who are interested.
Trust in God
4. WHY THE JEWS ARE JUDAH
In the next issue of our magazine, "Brit-Am Truth" (which may go to press
any day now) there is a very important and extremely good article proving
that the Jews are Judah.
Some people may think it ridiculous that the question as to whether or
not the Jews are Judah has to be even considered. Nevertheless the question
does come up even from the least expected quarters and it helps to have
true and ready answers. These answers are derived from the Bible which is
the most important sources we have. Stephen Collins has also written on
this issue from a secular aspect and a coming issue of BRIT-AM Truth will
feature another article on this subject.
Brit-Am has also written on this subject elsewhere and some of our points
are summarized in the list below.
WHY THE JEWS ARE JUDAH
Points Made by Stepehen Collins and Brit-Am in Summary
Stephen Collins explained:
n1. Zephaniah chapter two predicted the Judah would inherit the coastal
regions of Palestineincluding Asdhdod, Ekron, Ashkelon, and all the
coastland when they return from their captivity.
n2. Zechariah chapter 14 supplements Zephaniah and explains how the Jews
of Judah will dwell in Jerusalem and fight in defence of Jerusalem during
this same period. "Judah" would be a militarily victorious nation in the
n3. Genesis 49 also predicted that Judah in the Last Days will be like an
old lion (an old nation) and a young lion (a reborn entity) fighting nation
in the End Times that casts terror on those around her.
n4. Genesis 49 also shows how the reborn State of Israel set up by Judah
will be agriculturally prosperous.
The Jews in the present State of Israel have fulfilled all of the above
Brit-Am has shown how:
n5. The Jews were persecuted by the Gentiles as it had been prophesied
Judah would be:
Zechariah 1:15, Zechariah 8;13, Isaiah ch.53, Isaiah 42; 10, Psalm 44; 22
n6. The Jews kept the Law as it had been prophesied that Judah would:
Psalms 60; 9, 108; 90
Genesis 49; 10, Zechariah 8; 23
n7. The Jews keep the four fasts of mourning over the Destruction of the
Second Temple as prophesied by Zechariah 8:19
THE FAST OF THE FOURTH MONTH, -17th Tammuz
THE FAST OF THE FIFTH, - 9th of Av
AND THE FAST OF THE SEVENTH, - 3rd of Tishrei (Gedaliah)
AND THE FAST OF THE TENTH, - 10th Tebeth (Tevet).
5. The Hatred foreseen by Hosea
and Twin Towers (Do these towers symbolize the two sticks or trees
mentioned by Ezekiel 37:16 on?).
They did not have modern armies, aeroplanes, rockets, or bombs that could
reach the USA.
They had a team of individuals who were prepared to commit suicide along
with a few others who could be duped into
thinking that they would survive. They kidnapped aeroplanes and smashed
them into major prestige-significant buildings at vital points.
They caused much loss of life, property destruction, and they humiliated
the world power. This world power had on the whole always sought
to do good by them but it represented values and influence they did not
want and belonged to a people they despised.
There was no chance of achieving any victory just of doing damage and
hurting a people who had never wished to hurt them.
This attitude and the dangers it entailed had been mentioned by the Prophets.
We spoke of this in the first edition of "Ephraim" (1995, 2001).
ISLAM, MOHAMMED, EPHRAIM, AND PROPHECY
A psychopathic visionseeing Arab named Mohamed (550-632 CE)
decided that he had received a prophetic revelation superseding all others.
He proceeded to persuade his fellow countrymen to believe in him. Wars were
fought against non-believers. Peace was made with the major Tribe of Jews
and at an opportune moment the Treaty was broken, the Jewish males were
killed and their women taken. The breaking of the treaty was without
provocation. Moslem theologians justify the treachery and view it as
conduct to be emulated by true believers. The Arabian Jews had been
treacherously exterminated at Mohammed's direction. The presence of Jews in
the Arabian Peninsula was ultimately forbidden for all time. The Saudi
Arabian Government does not permit Jews to enter its territory. American
servicemen who are Jewish have to hide the fact when posted to Saudia!
There probably are some descendants of Jews and Israelites amongst the Arab
peoples but on the whole they are subservient to Arab culture. Only in
nations identified by us as dominated by Israelites has the Hebrew
character of Israelite descendants been enabled to even partially express
Regarding the future, some type of ill-fated bond between
Ephraim and the followers of Islam is spoken of in the Biblical Book of
Hosea. It is obvious that the same Biblical Prophecies may legitimately
often be understood in several entirely different ways - as they were
perhaps intended to be. The verses should be seen in their context*j. The
overall message is that the Prophet Hosea condemns Ephraim, uses a word
which may be understood to be a form of the name "Mohammed", speaks of the
region of Egypt and the east, and predicts a disaster which somehow
involves a mad prophet also identified traditionally as "Mohammed": The
quotations are from Hosea chapter nine:
" Do not be happy Israel, do not rejoice like (other)
peoples, for you have sinned (and gone) away from your God...(Hosea 9;1).
Note that Israelis told not to be happy because they have
departed from the truth. By "Israel" in this case Ephraim or the Ten Tribes
in their place of exile is intended.
"THEY WILL NOT DWELL IN THE LAND OF THE LORD, EPHRAIM SHALL
RETURN TO MITSRAYIM (EGYPT) AND EAT UNSANCTIFIED BROTH IN ASSYRIA (9;3).
"FOR BEHOLD THEY ARE GONE DUE TO LOOTING EGYPT [Mitsrayim],
MOPH [Memphis] GATHERS THEM, MACHMAD [i.e. Mahomad* ] BURIES THEM, THEIR
SILVER ENSNARED, THE THORN IN THEIR TENTS [tabernacles] INHERITS THEM (9;6).
The word is "Machmad" which is the same as the Arabic for Mohammed. The
KJ translates "machmad" (i.e. Mahommed) as "pleasant places" and such a
rendition is also linguistically feasible. It should be repeated that the
language of the Prophets often seems to deliberately allow itself of more
than one meaning.
"THE DAYS OF VISITATION HAVE ARRIVED, THE DAYS OF PAYMENT HAVE
COME, ISRAEL SHALL KNOW, THE PROPHET IS EVIL, MAD*l [Hebrew: "Meshuga"] A
MAN OF SPIRIT BECAUSE OF YOUR TRANSGRESSION AND OF GREAT HATRED (9;7):
The translation given here (i.e. "The mad and evil prophet") is a literal
transmission from the Hebrew:
"Evil haNavi Meshuga ish haRuach" in translation:
"evil [meaning the same as in English: "evil" or alternately "criminally
"haNavi [=the prophet]
"ish [=the man]
"HaRUacH [=of spirit].
i.e. "Evil is the Prophet, mad is the man of spirit":
This is translated in the KJ (Hosea 9;7) as :"the prophet is a fool, the
spiritual man is mad".
"EPHRAIM LOOKED OUT WITH THE GOD OF THE PROPHET, A HIDDEN
SNARE ON ALL HIS PATHS, HATRED IN THE HOUSE OF HIS GOD (9;8):.
Possible Paraphrase of Hosea:
<<Ephraim will be exiled from his land for his sins. In Exile he will eat
unclean foods. In search of gain they will draw close to the people of
Mohamed who was mad and sick yet in a way inspired by a spirit. He [the
people of Mohamed] will lay a trap for Ephraim since he hates Ephraim as
part of his religion.>>
"The mad prophet" was considered by some (e.g. Maimonides,
1135-1204, in his "Letter To Yeman") to be a reference to Mohamed and the
name of Mohammed (in Hebrew and Arabic: "Machmad") does appear in the
passage. The desert sun, sparse diet, and seclusion (as well as the
possible use of hashish and various weeds smoked by some of the Arabs) are
liable to play tricks on highly strung spiritually inclined individuals. If
the people concerned also suffer from epilepsy (as Mohammed did) and
delusions of grandeur so is the propensity for error compounded.
The religion of Islam in effect is derived from Arabic culture. Ishmael the
son of Abraham and Hagar his Egyptian maidservant was the father of leading
elements amongst the Arabs. Prior to the birth of Ishmael his mother was told:
[GENESIS 16:11] AND THE ANGEL OF THE LORD SAID UNTO HER, BEHOLD, THOU ART
WITH CHILD AND SHALT BEAR A SON, AND SHALT CALL HIS NAME ISHMAEL; BECAUSE
THE LORD HATH HEARD THY AFFLICTION.
[GENESIS 16:12] AND HE WILL BE A WILD MAN; HIS HAND WILL BE AGAINST EVERY
MAN, AND EVERY MAN'S HAND AGAINST HIM; AND HE SHALL DWELL IN THE PRESENCE
OF ALL HIS BRETHREN.
Onkelos (1st century CE) translated the expression, HIS HAND WILL BE
AGAINST EVERY MAN AND EVERY MAN'S HAND AGAINST HIMas meaning that he will
need everyone and everyone will need him. This is the case today. Everyone
needs Arab oil and the Arabs need everyone else to develop this oil and
market it. They also are often violently disposed towards everyone else and
other people dislike them.
Historically, the Arabian Jews whom Mohammed massacred may
have been an offshoot from the Lost Ten Tribes, i.e. "Ephraim". Regarding
the future the message of Hosea is a warning that the forces of Islam are a
danger. Association with them threatens disaster upon Ephraim which mainly
means Great Britain. Ephraim also includes important elements in North
America, South Africa, and Australia. A portion of Ephraim is also to be
found amongst the Jews The name Ephraim in Scripture can stand too for the
leading power amongst the Ten Tribes or all of the Ten Tribes in general.
The said verses may well contain a hint that Ephraim will attempt some type
of rapport with "the god of the prophet" and this will not turn out well.
